Commissioners hire new director,
receive awards for housing
By KEVIN i. SHUTT
SEBRING Highlands Count\ commissioners purchased
land. received two awards and hired a ne\\ office of manage-
ment and budget director during their meeting Tuesday.
Tara Gainer joined her husband Bernis Gainer Jr. a second-
eeneration Floridian. during his confirmation hearing. With no
opposing comments from commissioners or the public, the.
board unanimously approved his nomination.
"I'm not a man wkho pretends to know all the answerss"
Gainer told the board after his introduction.
He said his strength is finding answers for them.
Gainer. w he replaces Rick'Helms, has "tremendous" shoes to
fill. Bob Bullard. comrrmi'ion chairman, said. Helms was
recently promoted to assistant county administrator.
"It's a great opportunity; to welcome you back," Bullard said
to the former budget analy st who was employed with the coun-
ty from 1994 to 1996.
Gainer's first full day is Nov. 1.
For the first time in a while, the mention of impact fees at a
county commission meeting didn't spark hours of debate, con-
fusion or mud: slinging.
To the contrary, the board received an award from the
Department of Housing and Urban Development for increasing
home ownership opportunities.
"You recognized the impact that this could have on housing,"
Karen Jackson Sims, HUD field office director, said during the
award presentation.
She said the board's incorporation of tiered impact fees. for
low-income residents and its creation of an "affordable housing"
trust fund were commendable for their foresight.
"Those that are young will be able to grow old in Highlands
County," Sims said.
Of the 12 counties under her jurisdiction, Sims said
Highlands was one of two to receive two awards. The county
was also recognized for its role in establishing a six-county con-
sortium to address homelessness.

AVON PARK Five of the
six candidates running for the
four open seats on Avon Park's
city council, answered ques-
tions Monday night at a get-to-
know-the-candidates forum
sponsored by the Ivory Club
and aired live on WTTK.
The hour-long program was
hosted by Barry Foster, Cohan
Radio Group's news director.
One candidate for the 'city
council, Douglas Barnard,
declined to attend.
. Three candidates, ; Doug
Eason, Brenda Gray, and
George Hall, are current council
members, running for re-elec-
tion.
Joe Wright recently annexed
his property into the city of
Avon Park in order to qualify
for race, and Ed Dickerson is a
retired Marine. ,
Candidates were given three
minutes each to explain why
they were running for office and
what their qualifications were.1
Then Foster posed a series of
questions, which every candi-
date answered. The questions
were asked in a round robin. so
with every question, a different
person had to. ans% er 1 irst
When' asked how to solve
long standing code enforcement
problems, all the candidates
mentioned'the need to improve
communication with the public
and toughen code enforcement.


Gra y
spoke
specifically
of the need
for educa- ,
tion. She
said, most
people
would do
the right DICKERSON
thing if they
knew what
that was.
Eason and Hall pointed to
ongoing work of the council,
which is tightening city codes.
They said the city is committed
to hiring more code enforce-
ment officers. In fact, the city
has already committed itself to
adding two positions within
code enforcement.
While Dickerson and Wright
both spoke about stricter
enforcement, Hall alone men-
tioned the subject of fines
levied against owners whose
property fails to meet city
codes. He said fines should be
stricter and imposed impartially
across the board: He also said
that the city had to do a better
job of collecting fines-that had
already been issued.
Along the same vein, all the
candidates were united in their
-approval of thd pending land-
lord ordinances.
Each one mentioned the need
to protect the health and safety
of renting consumers. Hall, who
owns rental properties, we[l

comed annual inspections -of
such for that reason.
Asked about there cost of
future infrastructure, especially
in regard to getting sewer and
water lines to future annexa-
tions, the candidates agreed.
They pointed to the fact most
current development has been
done by sub-division as
such, the developer is responsi-
ble for things like roads, water
and sewers.
All -agreed that: long-term
plans are necessary to be sure
that infrastructure is well bal-
anced between need and the
abilmjt to pa\.
At the same time, all of the
candidates were confident that
growth will lead to larger tax
rolls, leading to greater city rev-
enues. They expressed surety
the costs will be covered, one
way or another.
'Gray expressed concern that
much of 'the cost of future roads
and sewers would be passed on
to the home buyer, making new
homes too expensive for many
buyers.


A safe distance


Ci-IRITOPIHEfR [LFFLE'N,.:.. ,-Sun
Jeff Roth, executive director of the Children's Advocacy Center, and Brian Franza-(on screen),
systems analyst for Highlands County, demonstrate the center's new tele-conferencing equip-
ment. Because of video and audio links to all 10th District courtrooms and the state attorney's
office, children who need to be protected against predators or family violence may be questioned
for the record from the safety of the center as explained in the Oct. 6 edition of the 'News-Sun.'


Postal Service now offering carrier pickup program


By MATrT MURPHY
News-Sun
SEBRING Tired of wait-
ing in long lines at the post
office just to send a package?,
As it turns out, you don't:
have to anymore. That's
because the U.S. Postal Service
has instituted a carrier pickup
program,
The program is designed to
save trips to the post office by
letting customers leave their
packages outside their homes'
so the letter carrier can pick
them up.
It works like this: 'If you
know how much your package
weighs, go to usps.com and
click on "calculate postage."
From there, enter the weight
and the ZIP codes of the pack-
age's origin and destination.
After that, select whether the


package will be mailed
overnight, priority, bundled, or,
media mail, and whether you
want to take advantage of fea-
tures like confirmation of deliv-
ery, a tracking number, and the
like.
. Once you've selected your
options, then you'll be able to
print out and pay for the ship-
ping online. Online registration
is required to take advantage of
printing labels online, but it
only takes a few minutes and'
only has to be done once.
In order for the package to be
picked, up by the carrier, it
needs to be'left in' a place where
it can'be seen during the carri-
er's normal travel route. In
other words, if the mailbox is in
front of the -house, it's probably
not a good idea to put the pack-
age on the back porch.

s 425,000


But the package doesn't.have
to necessarily be right next to
the mailbox. It just needs to be
in a place where the carrier can
see it.
Yvonne Yoerger, public rela-
tions representative for .the
USPS, says the service is very.
popular with eBay retailers and
sellers, as well as small, home-
based businesses. Some busi-
nesses ship a large number of
packages every day, and the
carrier pickup program makes
that part of the business easier.
But the service is, "really
accessible to anyone," she said.
The carrier pickup program
\ as actually started in 2003 as a
pilot program in selected mar+
kets around the country.
After hating success there,
the USPS expanded. the pro-
gram nationwide in 2004.


Rather than speak to the issue
of growing Avon Park larger,
Eason took his time to remind
the audience how far the city
had come back from the edge
- a time about 10 years ago he
said, when "We were in danger
of not being a city any more."
He said that since then the
city has put $1.5 million in the
bank, created an. award winning
recreational program, renovat-
ed city hall and built, a brand
new hurricane shelter, among
other things.
This led to two questions
having to do with higher level
infrastructure: The Community
Center on Main Street, which
was described as losing money,
and the Avon Park Airport.'
E ery one agreed that it is too
soon to pass judgment upon the
community center.
- Every candidate said it was
too, important a' site to be aban-
doned. So important, the candi-
dates all said, that even if it ran
at a deficit it would still be
worth it. Most were convinced-
it was only a matter of time,
with perhaps a more energetic
marketing campaign, before the
community center would pay
for itself as a rental hall.
Dickerson suggested that the'
chamber of commerce move,
into the building,. creating a
downtown focal point.
There was more difference of
opinion on the subject of the
airport.
Hall is on the airport's board,.
and Eason is also a booster.
Eason wants to see the airport
grow up to the next level. He is
disappointed in the lack of com-
mercial investment there.
Hall said, "The airport does-
n't loose money. It's -a tremen-
dous asset." -
Dickerson and. Wright were
cautious in their approach. Both


said they needed to
do more study
before they could
draw any conclu-
sions. Wright men-
tioned he had flown
in and out of
enough small air-
ports to be aware of
GHT their value.
Dickerson want-
ed a study looking
into the airport its goals and
chances of reaching them -
before making up his mind. He
also said turning Sebring into a
small passenger hub could be
an option, especially if the
report on the Avon Park airport
was negative.
The' final question, of the
night asked candidates about
the 50 percent fire assessment
that was implemented a few
years ago. Should the assess-
ment be adjusted, either higher
or lower, and should it be
extended to cover institutional
property, like public schools or
churches?
No one felt the fire assess-
ment should be lowered.
Eason said the fire depart-
ment had grown from three to
five shifts, and that the firemen
were better trained, using newer
equipment. Dickerson, Hall and
Wright said they -felt every
building owner should pay a
fair assessment for the fire
department. but ;that without a
mechanism to ensure fairness in
assigning the assessment, none
of them supported any change
to the status quo.
.Hall said that, ironically,
some of the largest buildings in
town, the ones that required the
fire department to btiy larger,
more expensive trucks for
example, were churches, which
weren't willing to pay for those
truck .
However, Hall also said,
because a fair and even enforce-
ment of the. assessment was
impossible, it made the ques-
tion moot.
Election da\ is No'. 7.
Early voting begins at the,
Highlands County Go'emment
Center on ,Commerce Streei,.
Morida\. Citizens may cast their
ballots weekdays and Saturday.
from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., until

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING After two
years of existence the Ivory
Club has become increasingly
popular by addressing the hot
topics of the day and bringing
information to residents of all
political persuasion at no addi-
tional cost in terms of member-
ship or admission prices.
In the best-attended meeting
to date, citizens packed the
meeting room at Homer's
Restaurant in the Sebring
Square shopping complex last
month to hear candidates in the.
running for Highlands County
Commission and District 77
State House of Representatives.
"We only had about three
empty seats scattered through-
out the crowd. It was a close to
standing room only as we have
ever been," Ivory Club chair-
man Steve Rbberts said.
Attending the session
were Highlands County Com-
mission District 2 candidates'
Conda Ruckman, Edgar Stokes.
and Audrey Vickers; District 4
candidate Don Bates;. and
Florida House District 77 hope-
ful Zane Thomas.
"It was a particularly good
session because we had a num-
ber of issues on the table. Even
I wasn't clear on all of them,"
Roberts said, noting that dis-
cussing the topics of interest
with local residents is the mis-
sion statement of the .organiza-
tion.
"We ianit to Lei the informI-
tion to. the electorate ,straight
from the people, who are
responsible for it. We want to
eliminate as many misinder-
standings as we can," he added.
The Ivory Club had sched-'
uled a forum for the 16th
Congressional seat held by
Mark Foley, however, since-
Foley's resignation that has
been called off. In its place, the_
group will be discussing
Thursday the constitutional
amendments that will be on the
November ballot.

it t,._ tl L;


"I really think that will be a
much more important issue,"
Roberts said. "Folks will have a
lot of opportunity to see and
hear these candidates, but
there's very little information
about these initiatives that are
being proposed for our state
constitution."
Among the propositions vot-
ers will be asked to decide are:
measures that would mandate a
long-range budget planning
process for legislators; one to
determine how easy or hard it
will be in the future to amend
the state constitution; another
to determine how money from


the $57 million tobacco settle-
ment with the state is spent;
an amendment possibly to
increase the the homestead
exemption; and lastly, an option
to set parameters on the govern-
ment's ability to take private
property through eminent
domain proceedings.
The Ivory Club is open to the
public and meets the third -
Thursday of each month at the
Homer's Restaurant in the
Sebring Square shopping plaza.
Those who wish to eat are
encouraged to come at 5 p.m.
with the meeting to start at 6
p.m.

said. And there was more to
show off than ever before. Two
new murals have been painted,
for example, and two more are

a time. Everyone sat down and
prayed."
When the time came for sur-
gery, Diana and her husband,
Jimmy Acevedo,,were taken to
the doors of the operating room
along with Crystal and little
Edwin after the others said their
goodbyes and gave him kisses
and hugs.
"We went to the operating
doors and I was holding him. A
nurse put him into a crib arid he
was reaching out to us and cry-
ing so she took him out and
walked through the doors with
him," Diana Acevedo recalled.
"He kept reaching out to us and
we just broke down and held
each other."
Watching their daughter go
through all of this alone is very
difficult for her parents. At such
a young age she has taken on
more responsibilities than most
could ever imagine.
She has to empty his colosto- *
my bag (which he'll have to
have for two years), change it
one. time a week, empty his
catheterization bag when it is
full, and even catheterize him
herself. She also has to main-
tain his feeding tube and keep
up with administering all his
medications in addition to
recording all input and output.
"She has us to help her, but
no partner," Diana Acevedo
said trying to hold back tears.
His surgery went very well
and he was released to the
transplant house across from
the hospital only 18 days later.
"The doctors said he was one
of only a few to be released so
soon," Diana Acevedo said.
"He was smiling, giggling,

plant house just a short time after receiving eight organs.


crawling, active, and happy. We
even have video of him playing
peek-a-boo with his blanket."
. Unfortunately, he has had to
be readmitted three times since
then for minor problems, but is
once again in the transplant
house where Jhe is doing well.
If all goes as expected, he
will be released in a month or
two but will have to wear a
mask and will still be on a feed-
ing tube and have a colostomy
and catheter bag for some time.
He has been a fighter
throughout his life, as has
Crystal Acevedo. The doctor
told her, "You have had a long
road waiting for the transplant,
but now you will have a new
long road," Diana Acevedo
said.
Crystal Acevedo will have to
relocate from the SpringLake
community to Orlando because
Highlands County has no facil-
ity for her to care for him in the
event of an emergency. There


will also be day care available
in Orlando that cares for med-
ically needy children.
As hard as it will be, Crystal
Acevedo is dedicated to caring
for her son regardless of what it
takes.
She has been unable to work,
however, as ?a result of his needs
and she struggles on a daily .
basis to survive financially. Her
financial needs are many, not
the least of which is a depend-
able vehicle. While a fund has
been set up for many months on
his behalf, the money raised
(primarily through the efforts of
pastor Alvin Connor's Vision
Community Church in Avon
Park), will not come close to
meeting the growing demands.
Anyone wishing to con-
tribute to his fund,can be make
checks payable to any

LAND
Continued from 1A
With the approval of more
than $2.5 million in land acqui-
sitions Tuesday, the county has
secured 70 percent of the right
of ways it needs to begin
Sebring Parkway Phase II.
"If the good Lord is good to
us, we would like to be under
construction by summer of next
year," county engineer Ramon
D. Gavarrete said.
Before breaking ground for
the extension, which will con-
tinue the parkway as a five-lane
throughway from Ridgewood
Avenue to U.S. 27 via
Eucalyptus Street and
Highlands Avenue, the county
must make improvements to
entrances at Sebring High
School and Fred Wild
Elementary School.
Gavarrete said that construc-
tion won't begin until school
lets out in May. He said the
two-year parkway extension
would take two years.

Other land acquisitions
include real estate behind
Highlands Regional Medical
Center for a retention pond and
the gas station at the intersec-
tion of Highlands Avenue and
Kenilworth Boulevard, for
which the county is negotiating
a "total taking" with the
owner's attorney.
The $2.5 million was for five
parcels of land, two of which
were appraised at more than
$500,000 triggering a legisla-
tive requirement for an extraor-
dinary vote (4-1 approval by the
commission board) 9.7 acres


at 1720 Sebring Parkway for
$740,000 and 14.7 acres at
2000 Sebring Parkway for $1.7
million.
Other properties. purchased
included $23,000 for .3 acres at
2600 Sebring Parkway; $4,700
for .07 acres, Lot 48 of 2600
Sebring Parkway and $47,200
for .6 acres, Lots 49 and 50 of
2600 Sebring Parkway.
"I know it's been a very long
effort," Gavarrete said. "Back
in 2000 we never figured that
property would jump from
$4,000 to $150,000 an acre.
That's been the hold up."

My next column will attempt to
reveal the problems the natural health
industry has been having from various
sources of the conventional. Food and
Drug Administration and medical
world.
Too many Americans have been.
affected for their health-related future
and as well the many years before of
suffering needlessly.
We all are literally crying out for
reform, "stop with poisoning us"
everyday of our lives including our
precious children. Greed has been so
evident with taking advantageous of
seniors, and una% are people. This will.
be shown very strongly in the next Col-
umn.

Are you aware that The Vioxx situation has
resulted in more than 132.000 k
Deaths? This is onl.\ one small part of the ter-
rif\ing situations that have arisen the past 72
years.
In 1934, Dr. Royal Raymond Rife found the
answer in determining the causes of most illness-
es. Cancer %was one of those he detected by using
hi, most powerful tool, a microscope that showed
certain colors. was the main reason for predicting
the disease observed. Can you imagine ho\\
many lives could ha\e been sa\ed if we had the
courage and sense to realize that we ha:e had
since 1934? This %would have been great opportu-
nity to make our country healthier, less costi1 and
above all eliminate once and for all greedy-inter-
ested in financial only companies, not (he real
health our American people suffering needlessly.
We are today still bowing to the self interest of
drug companies who are trying to lower the cost


of drugs politically, having the presi-
dent of our great country not seeing the
obvious ruse and deception of fooling
our people.
Throughout the years since, we have
been victimized by ruthless, greedy
and corrupt action certainly not helping
most of us. It has been ungodly like.
There will be pertinent information
RAL regarding the FDA raid on Dr. Jonathan
Wright's clinic. He has been one of the
NESS most informative physicians in the
NEY world, and whose workers were told to
lie on the floor while the clinic was
isch ransacked and patient's personal med-
seh ical history were pulled from their files
and taken away. There is much more

On the more interesting side of the next few
articles, w ill be exciting herbal and kitchen foods

A doggone confession must be made


ROMONA WASHINGTON
Executive Editor
SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor


Volunteers needed
With more and more children living today in single
parent homes, the desperate need for more volunteers in
programs like Big Brothers Big Sisters should be no
mystery.
About 85 children are on a waiting list, hoping to be
matched with a "Big" of their own someday soon.
Reality, though, says it may be a while before those 85
kids get a match, and even then there will be more chil-
dren who have found their way to the waiting list.
Saturday's fun with the Experimental Aircraft
Association-Young Eagles at Sebring Regional Airport
gave 20 children an idea. of sqme of the fun that can be
had through the program.
While some children, like 10-year-old Delroy Blake,
wait for a match, there .are other children who have been
fortunate to have the same "Big" for, a number of years.,
Such is the case with Chris Quackenbush, now 15, who
was first paired with Wayne McFarland five years ago.
The teenager credits McFarland for making him a
"better person" and helpinghim to have a "-better attitude'
toward life."
McFarland's work and family commitments as of late
have caused him to draw their monthly visits from two or
three a month to at least one. A busy schedule, he said, is
the biggest objection he hears as a board director from
prospective "Bigs." .
*"Some kids don't have the advantages that I had or that
my family has," McFarland said of his desire to fill a
need. "I believe in young people."
McFarland is not solo when he spends time with
Quackenbush. Many times, the time together includes
McFarland's wife and his two .teenage daughters. .
Sometimes it is just the guys.
And the lessons are two-way. McFarland is credited
for teaching Quackenbush to be a, better person.
Quackenbush takes credit for. teaching McFarland to
fish.
Regardless of who is teaching or helping who, one
thing is for certain. The need for more "Bigs" is preva-
lent. .
One mom of a hopeful "Little" is anxious to' see her
child paired with a "Big.", "There's nothing wrong with
good, clean fun and for him to experience, new things,"
Scott, said. "Somebody is there to give him guidance
other than me." :
Gary Araujo. the local coordinator. said there's plenty\
- of room for Highlands and Hardee count\ residents. tb.
."step up" and become a "Big." ,
S The program has 50 participating children. But. 85 are,
on a waiting list. One boy, who moved to Sebring from
West Virginia where he used to be in the program, has
been waiting a year.
There's the traditional program, in which the child and.
the "Big" hang out together two or three times a month,
for a couple hours at a time.
And, there's the school program in which a "Big"
spends the lunch hour with a participant.
For more information, call Araujo .at 402-9001. It
doesn't matter how much time you.have to give, or what C
your age is. Do, something for a child. Sign up to be a
"Big 1'"

Wake up

America, vote
Editor:
I know we are all tired of
reading and hearing all the
political comments, allegations
and promises. I personally
think it is time to start thinking
about voting for the person you
have researched and whose
beliefs most fit yours and what'
you want for our country.
I know that most politicians
start out with' objectives, goals
and morals but somehow get
caught up in the money,
rewards,'big businesses needs
and personal gains. The, forret
that this is a government of the
people and by the people.
If our American way is to
succeed we have .to act now
and take back our government.
SAs a kid I was raised a
Democrat but ran a chamber of
commerce and worked for'
mostly Republicans so I know
that there are good people on-
each side: Through the years I
have listened,: and' .watched
people s.i 'I am a Democlt or,
Republican and therefore must
support the pdrt',' with little
regard to the goals, ciedit.Ibili-
ty or integrity 'of the person
running.
I personally. have always
wondered why our gas prices
here- in Sebring were higher
than the national average and
i as _shocked to see that we sent
a state representative in Denise
Grinmley with direct ties to big
oil. Come .On, how smart are
we?
I think reading and listening
to.Lou Dobbs' repoits and new
book on "-\Wa on Middle Class
America" 'woke me up more
than ani thing. Big business
seems to be. running our gov-
ernment. We know it takes
money to run for office and the
middle class doesn't have that
and neither do the poor so .,
hello, Big Business..' ,.
Let us not forget that it is
middle class America who has
built our country by their sweat
and family foundation. It is
middle class America and poor
vho has fought 'and died in our
N ars,'not the v.e.iltlh. It is.mid-
dle 'class America who again is
sacrificing in cutbacks in retire-
ment plans, health insurance,
jobs being outsourced, and yes,
we have allowed it to happen
because we have put the wrong
people in office.
What would happen if we.
had no party politics? That the
people sent to office had no
obligations to anyone? That
men and women tran because
they want to make a difference
ifdr all Americans and keep our-
society in tact. Selfless initia-
tive, integrity, creativity, and
expertise might, once again
mean that the children of
America could once more look
up to our elected officials and
dream the great American
Dream and God would not be
used to get you elected but the
belief in God would make you
a credit to the position.
In closing, I hope you will all
get out and vote but not
because a minister in church
tells you to, or you are of either
political party, but instead
because you have done your
homework and looked at the
voting record of an incumbent,
and researched the new person
who is running.
One man told me the other
day, "I'm voting against any-

puppies. She tends to them as
needed and you can just see the
love that she is showing to these
baby animals. Yet, there most
certainly is more to this story
that meets the eye.
Just about two months ago,
we were taking extreme precau-
ti6ns for this now mother. The


I


dog would be kept in her cage
during the nighttime hours, then
let onto the porch for the hot,'
humid daytime hours.-
Well, I was entrusted to this
process one bright and lovely
day. As I was tending to her
hungry needs, I noticed some-
thing out. of the comer of my
eye. The young pup who was
not needing to go through this
precise process was following
the older dog around. From one
side of the porch to' the other
side, the pup would keep the
other dog's steps. Yelping and
whimpering were not too soon
to follow.
After watching this occur for
quite some time, it began to
play a number, upon my heart
strings. As the.dogs were beck-
oning to be let out and join each
other for a game of' whatever


dogs like to do best, this final
heart string was plucked. In
what I have since decided was a
rash decision, I let the older dog
out to play with the younger
one.
Now that it has been two
months, needless to say, we
now have newborn puppies.
These puppies are some of the
most adorable little' creatures I
have ever seen and it breaks my
heart knowing that soon enough
they will have to be given away.
So, if you are interested in pro-
viding for one of these darling
little puppies a lox ing home.
you now know who exactly to'
contact. Any takers ...?

Settled claim

still costly
Editor:
I'm 'a senior citizen and I
think I'm being ripped off.
I filed a Small Claims at the
Highlands County Courthouse
Sept. 5. At that time I paid $155
in court costs. The defendant.
paid the claim,, but refused to
pay court costs. So I thought if
no court case it would be
returned to me.
When I turned in my dis-
missal papers, they refused,
stating "An attorney" must file
papers for me. I called two
attorneys, both refused.
Now I feel an attorney was
not necessary, but I'm being

New stance is

Editor:
This administration is yet
again claiming the prerogative
of dictating to other govern-

they will be allowed to func-
tion.
In light of the Republican's,
record of "pre-emptive foreign
policy" over the past few years,


'can you logically fault any
small country for taking steps
to protect. themselves from
what can only be percei ed as a
philosophy of empire building?
This could especially\ apply to
any nation unfortunate enough
to be labeled b, Bush as a ter-
ronst nation or one that has oil'
reser es.
The sovereign nation of Iraq

More than a million Iraqi citi-
zens have reportedly left their
own country in search of safety.',
Many more have taken up arms
against our military due to our
continued occupation. These
are the same people that Bush
proclaimed would greet us 'with
open arms.
We. have recently been

ization by the public that we

National Character Counts Week W


Teenagers are struggling
with character and integrity,
and parents need to know more
about the choices children are
making. This was stated by the
chairman of the Institute of
Ethics, Michael Josephson.
Oct. 15-21 is celebrated as
National Character Counts
Week. In a survey conducted by
the institute, it was disclosed
that although students felt char-
acter and ethics are. important,
they were cynical about
whether "a person can be ethi-
cal and succeed."
Fifty percent of males and 33
percent of females believe that
"a person has to lie or cheat
sometimes in order to succeed."
One in five believe that "peo-
ple who are willing to break the
rules are more likely to succeed
than people who do not."
Twenty-three percent stole
something from a parent or
other relatives within the past


Fhe'





months. Eleven percent did so
two or more times.
Nineteen percent stole from a
friend or relative within the past
12 months.
Twenty-eight percent stole
something from a store within
the past 12 months, 14 or more
times.
Eighty-two percent admit
they lied to a parent within the
past 12 months about some-
thing significant; 57 percent
said they lied two or more


times.
Sixty-two percent said they
lied to a teacher within the past
12 months about sometAing sig-
nificant.
The reports said the young-
sters that spoke of ethics, char-
acter and trust frequently- lie,
cheat and even steal without
much guilt.
"The reason to cheat is deter-
mine by how society treats us,"
said one student, who stated
that if you don't have a 3.9
grade point average don't both-
er to apply to certain colleges.
This is why many students
cheat their way to college.

and every evening, feeding her
religiously. She proved right off
that she was a glutton for atten-
tion and would stand still as
long as I was prepared to pet
her. The girls and I went down
the road to where the ditches
had been freshly mowed and
collected enough dried grass to
make her a soft bed, and all the
while I fretted that it was a
waste of time. I suspected that
this little calf, for all intents and
purposes, had given up.
I was not keen to name her,
and fought against getting
attached, until I knew for sure.
She needed to exhibit some sign
that she wasn't just existing, but


was determined to pull through.
Then one fine morning I
went out to feed her, and there it
was; a clumsy attempt at a head
butt.
"What was that?" I mur-
mured to her. "Are you going to
fight, little girl?"
As though in answer to my
question,' it came again ... an
undeniably insistent nudge that
almost knocked the bottle out of
my hand, and I smiled. Maybe
there is hope, I thought. Maybe
it's OK to name her, but what
would the name be?
She looked up at me then, as
the level in the bottle sank dra-
matically, and it came to me.
"You've got ... Betty Davis,
eyes," I said to her, and she
blinked, and I knew she was
named.
When you've got pigs named


Jennifer Lopez and Lucille
Ball, a heifer named Betty
Davis is not that big a stretch,
I'm sure we'll shorten it to just
Betty over time, and if I have
my way, one day she'll be the
milk cow that I've always want-
ed.
Meanwhile, she's just anoth-
er warm body that.needs a little
tender, loving care, and a bottle
twice a day, and frankly, that's
the kind of stuff that gets me
out of bed in the mornings.

- Eating



Eggs


High in protein, eggs are essential ingredients
for many recipes and meals. But raw eggs can
sometimes cause foodborne illnesses.
The following food safety guidelines will
help you avoid eating raw eggs.

Beware of homemade Caesar salad
dressing, mayonnaise or mousse that
contains raw eggs.

Watch out for recipes that call for lightly
cooked eggs.

Always cook egg yolk and whites until firm.
r Never lick a bowl of raw batter that contains
raw eggs.

Ores dipped .i'n milk... cold pizza... rocky road... peanut
butter and banana sandwiches. Vh3it'4 yours? Oh, corn on,
you know what I'm talking about... Your favorite bedtime
snack! Everyone has one. However, before you indulge, keep in
-'mi3nd that if you're one of 100 million Americans with difficulty
Iceping, there's something you may want to consider,
hat you eat before bedtime can dramatically affect how you sleep..
You may not'know...
One of the' keys to a restful nights sleep is to get your brain calmed dowr rather than revved up.
Some foods contribute to restful sleep; other foods keep you awake. Foods containing tryptophan will
help you sleep, because tryptophan is the amino acid that the body uses to make serotonin, the neu-
rotransmitter that slows down nerve traffic so your brain isn't so. busy. Foods containing stimulants
or precursors to stimulants, such as caffeine, perk up the brain, making sleep more difficult.
Eating carbohydrates with tryptophan-containing foods makes this calming amino acid more
available to the brain. A high carbohydrate meal stimulates the release of insulin, which helps clear
from the bloodstream those amino acids that compete with'tryptophan. This allows more of this nat-
ural sleep-inducing amino acid to enter the brain, and cdnsequentially, manufactures 'more sleep-
inducing substances such as serotonin and melatonin. Eating a high-protein meal close to bed time
with out accompanying it with enough carbohydrates may result in keeping you' awake, since pro-
tein-rich foods also contain the amino acid,'tyrosine, which perks up the brain.
You can take advantage of this biochemical quirk by choosing protein or carbohydrate-rich meals,
depending on whether you want to perk up or slow down your brain. For students and working adults,
high protein, medium-carbohydrate meals are blest eaten for breakfast and lunch. For dinner and bed-
time snacks, eat a meal or snack that is high in complex carbohydrates, with a small amount of pro-
tein that contains just enough tryptophan to relax the brain. An all-carbohydrate snack, especially
one high in refined sugars (ak junk food), is less likely to help you sleep. You'll miss out on the sleep-
inducing effects of the tryptophan, and you may set off the roller-coaster effect of plummeting blood
sugar followed by the release of stress hormones that will keep you awake.
The best bedtime snack is one that has both complex carbohydrates and protein, and perhaps the
added bonus of some calcium. Calcium helps the brain use the tryptophan to manufacture mela-
tonin. This explains why dairy products, which contain both tryptophan and calcium are on the top
of the sleep-inducing foods list.
Sleepy Time Foods
These are foods high in the sleep-inducing amino acid tryptophan:
Dairy products: cottage cheese, cheese, milk
Soy products: soy milk, tofu, soybean nuts
Seafood Poultry Beans Hummus Hazelnuts Eggs Meats Who Grains Rice
Lentils Peanuts Sesame seeds Sunflower seeds.

'Sebring girls reeled off eight,
unanswered points and seemed
to have an extra bounce in their
step. Bullock followed up her
opening kill with another pow-
erful s-\at for the seventh point.
forcing the Lad. De\ils to cadl
a timeout to get their bearings
While the girls in red tried to
increase the intensity. Sebring's
defense stepped up \ hen it
needed to. The front line %%as
consistent, and the Streaks used
some finesse to add to the
power on offense. Rachel
Ashley took some pace off of a
kill to0 confound Avon Park's
Lynsey Cleghorn and Whitney
Lee and Hannah Shoop record-,
ed kills to take the first game.
Game two was the hardest-
fought and closest franie of the
contest. The De\ils. know ing
they had little room for error,
-took a 6-1 lead prompting a
Sebring timeout. T \o more Red
Devil points pushed the lead to
8-1. but Sebring bounced back
for six unanswered points.
As Avon Park kept trying to
crawl back in,' the story of the
night became Sebring's steady
play. Without doing too much,
the Streaks simply minimized
their mistakes down the stretch
and let the Devils beat them-
selves more times than not.
Long scoring runs from
Sinness' squad kept the Streaks
vocal, and even when the
starters sat, Sebring maintained
control. ..
The screaming voices and
revelry after every point let
everyone know that this is
rivalry first, and a district tour-
ney game second.
"We know a lot of those


(Avon Park; girls and some of
them used to go to Sebring. I
coached some of them. but talk-
ing trash is part of the game."
said Sinness % ith a ood-
natured smile "Words v.ere
spoken outside of school, they
definitely ran into them on a
regular basis the last week. but
w\e were in our zone."
For %hat it's \\orth. several
Lads Devils made last-ditch
efforts to get the team back -on
track. Tiffiny Gregor continued
her habit of being in the right
place at the right time. NMiss\
Lander showed her athleticism
keeping the ball alive in some
sticky situations, and ,Danielle
West had a body sacrificing dig'
in game three to keep -a long
rally alive for the Devils, but in
the end it just wasn't enough.
Coach', Christie Hipps was
disappointed with the e ening.
but pleased with the season as a
%\hole. -
"'Overall %e played very well
this season Most of the games,
we played in vwe'went to five.
Throughout the season the girl.
%worked hard. The\ were deter-
mined," Hipps said.

weren't overconfident by any
means, but we're going to have
to play better."
The Dragons definitely did-
n't play well out of the gate,
stumbling into a, 10-4 hole
before Britney Baldwin served
three straight aces and Kristin
Massung got two blocks and a
kill in an 8-0 run that gave Lake
Placid a 12-10 lead.
S It was a one-point game at
17-16 when the Dragons went
on another 8-0 spurt, getting
some good serves from Tara
Weeks and some good net play
from Allison Gilde to close it
out.
Game two saw the Dragons
battle for an 18-13 lead, only to
let bad passing and bad defense
on Mulberry serves turn that
cushion into a 22-20 deficit.
Lake Placid rallied to tie it at
22, and a bad Panther serve, a
,Weeks block and a net violation
by Mulberry put Lake Placid
up 2-0 in the match.
The Panthers looked like the
top seed for much of the third
game, sprinting out to a 22-10
lead before the Dragons finally
got their rhythm back, getting'
solid serving from Weeks and a
,:,pair of big kills from Gilde to
cut the Panther lead to 24-21
before Mulberry pulled to with-
in a game.
"It wasn't how we expected
to play tonimgh. but we were
down in that third game and
fought back .nd I'm proud of
that. We ended up losing the
game, but they fought back,"
Jones said.
Lake ,Placid opened the
fourth game on a roll, taking a
12-6 lead, but the Panthers
came back to -make .it 14-13,
then tied it at 17, moaitl) thanks
to Lake Plicid erroi s.
It \\as itill tied at 21'when a.
TMulberry miscue gave the
Dragons the lead for good, and
a Mulberry carry on the final
rally ended the match.
"Tm ge tinL- too old to take
the close games," Jones said.
"The girls stepped up when
they needed to. Tara Weeks was
a little bit under the weather
and -she played a good ,.amie
considering everything. Kristin
Massung pla ed well- and
Jackie (Berard) is a general on
the court and she did well.":

Boys coach John Snyder said
it uas putting that proved to be
the stumbling block for his
team.
"The course itself wasn't as

brutal. We just don't ~have any-
thing like that in Highlands
