Heartland

By MATT MURPHY

SEBRING A hot October night
didn't stop Thursday night's-Heartland
Idol contestants from dressing up in
suits, long dresses, and other 1960s out-
fits.
It was Beatles night, and 12 contest-
ants remain in the Heartland Idol corn-
petition. It was also a night designed to
get some singers out of their comfort
zones. The Beatles format presented a
bit of a challenge to some singers who
had adyancedpreviously by singing
gospel, country, and other decidedly un-
Beatles songs.
Ne\ etheless. 12 out of the 16 singers
took one more step tow ard' the finals at
Thursday& night's competition
Keith Willis. 46. of Venus, had the
unlucky chore of going first, but it didn't

Council to start foreclosure proceedings on Harder Hall


By MATT MURPHY
News-Sun
SEBRING -The Sebring
City Council voted to begin the
process of foreclosing on his-
toric Harder Hall Tuesday
night, after owner Mark
"Shenker failed to meet a 42-day
deadline to pay outstanding
interest payments.'
The motion authorized city
attorney J. Michael Swaine to
start foreclosure proceedings,
and also authorized suing
Shenker. The motion passed 3-0
(council inembers Bud
Whitlock and Annette Daff
were not present at the meet-
ing).
The council threatened
Shenker with foreclosure at its
Sept. 5 meeting if he didn't pay
$78,812 in outstanding interest
payments owed to the city.
Shenker was given until
Tuesday night to come up with
the money and he did not.
Shenker also owes an estimated
$125,000 in outstanding ad val-
orem real estate taxes for 2004


and 2005.
The foreclosure will not be
filed until Oct. 30, in part to
allow city officials to meet with
parties who might be interested
in the property, There has been
some interest, but it is unclear
whether Shenker will lower his
asking price of $14 million.
Foreclosure proceedings will
take about eight -months,
according to Swaine. "It's going
to take a while to get (Shenker)
served," he said. "We still have
to find him."
Shenker was not present at
Tuesday's meeting, and no one
was there to represent him.
Attorney Bob Swaine, who
spoke to the council about the
Harder Hall situation, said
Shenker offered the city the
property "in lieu of foreclo-
sure." ,
Swaine advised against this
action, however, because' it
would leave the city responsible
for the liens on the property, as
well as the $1 million second
mortgage.'


"If you accepted the deed in
lieu of foreclosure," he said,
"then (Shenker) would have no
personal obligation."
The council chose to sue
Shenker individually because
he signed a personal guarantee,
which stated that he would be
responsible for payments to
workers on the hotel if his com-
pany, Joran Realty, failed to
pay.
It is unclear whether Shenker
will declare bankruptcy. If he
-does, the action would not nec-
essarily stop the city from col-
lecting, according to Bob
Swaine. .,
"It's not that (Shenker filing
bankruptcy) stops us," he said..
"It just puts a couple of big hur-
dles in the way. There's nothing
we can do to stop a bankruptcy,
good 'or bad."
Some on the council had pre-
viously feared that foreclosing
on the property would directly)
cause Shenker to declare bank-
'ruptcy. Bob Swaine. hoeter,
said he didn't think filing fore-


Students help with safe bus record


By TREY CHRISTY

Last Friday, Florida
Education Commissioner John
L. Winn announced that this
week, Oct. 15-21, is Florida
School Bus Safety week.
While school buses are by far
some of the safest vehicles on
the road, logging more than 300
million'. miles last year in
Florida alone, it is still impor-
tant for students to know that
they play a major part in keep-
ing injuries, only 209 last year,
to arninimum. That is why this
year's theme is "I see the driver
the driver, sees me."
Students should pay attention
to the driver and make sure he,
signals them that it is OK to get
on the bus. Almost two-thirds
of all school bus-related fatali-
ties happen outside the bus, and
that statistic has a lot to do with
drivers around the bus.

The Highlands County
Board of County
Commissioners did not

land purchases at its Tuesday
meeting, as the News-Sun

$1.88 million for several right

closure would directly cause a
bankruptcy filing.
"Us filing a foreclosure suit
would not be the last key that
would allow him to file bank-
ruptcy," Bob Swaine said. "He
could do it now, he could do it
later. He's not told us that he's
going to do it. He didn't say 'if
you sue me, then I'll have to
choose.'"
The council said it. will pre-
pare a possible figure for sale of
the property for the next meet-
ing, on Nov. 7. Currently,
Shenker's $14 million number
for- the property is considered
too high to prospective buyers
.and the council.
,There are two liens filed on
the property, x which \ would ha% e
to be repaid if the property was
sold by the city. Companies that
worked on the building hjae 90
da\s after their work is com-
pleted to file a lien if the\ were
not paid. Companies that didn't
file a lien are not in line to
recene proceeds from sale of
the property although theN
,xould ha\e a potential cause of
legal action if the\ chose to pur-
stle it.
"We've been talking about
this m public meetings. telling
these contractors 'tile your,
liens, you've ''ot to do it,'"
council president Jeff Carlson
said.
Council member John Griffin
said foreclosure proceedings
needed to start, even though he
didn't want to see contractors
take a financial hit.
"I think we just need to start
proceedings," he said. "I don't
want to see any, subcontractors
lose money either. But we need
to do something. We just can't ,
keep talking about it."
Prospective buyers
' Bob Swaine had been con-
tacted by two people w ho w ant-
ed to look at the property. Filing.
foreclosure would probably
make it harder for someone to
come in and refinance the proj-
ect S\waine said. which is one
of the reasons \u hN the council
decided to talt until Oct. 30 to
file. The time %would gile the
citl the opportunity to stop
foreclosure, proceedings if a,...
\ able financier %\as found.


"We know there are folks
looking," Bob Swaine said.
"There have been folks looking
for a long time now. We've got-
ten nothing concrete that
they're going to come in and do
this."'
Michael Swaine expressed a
small concern he had about
starting foreclosure now.
"While. it's certainly difficult
to borrow money when you're
behind on your payments," he
said, "it becomes even more
difficult if there's a foreclosure
in place." But Carlson respond-
ed by saying Shenker would
have already borrowed money
if he could.
- Carlson expressed his contin-
.uing frustration about Shenker
and the Harder Hall situation.
-"I'm done. I was done the
last time," Carlson said. "I did-
n't want to give them until
today because I knew these
weren't going to do \%hat they
said the. \ ere going to do.
"% %ant to start foreclo-ure."
Councilkloman Margie
Rhoades said while she too
wants- to foreclose, she didn't
\\ant to take away any financ-
ing optionsthat the city could
hj\'e in front of them.,
"I would d love to foreclose on
thenm \esterdan." Rhoades shJd
"But I'm thinking if there are


things in the works that can
make this $350,000 (in unpaid
invoices) whole,'I don't wantt to
eliminate that possibility right
now."
Michael Swaine's office can
go ahead and prepare the fore-:
closure over the next two
weeks, and if a financing plan
didn't work out, he could then
file it.
Carlson, who voted no on the,
Sept. 5 motion to give Shenker
extra time to pay the payments,
was clear about wanting the city
to be taken out of the .nmess.
"All I want these guys to,
come up w ith is cash," he said.
"I don't care about any stories
or pieces of paper or anything
else.. Just pay our loan and take
us out of the deal. So far, no
one's willing to do that.'
"I x\ould like to go ahead and
file the foreclosure papers, and
then talk to people wh6o have an
interest in this property and -see
if there's a number out there
that'll cover,the liens currently
out on that building. That's it.
That's lal I'm %worried about."
, Carlson said a monetarN fig-.
ure that would d cover the out-
standing debts on the property.
Should be studied and' made
availablee at the council' next
meeting.

Tiny computer fits in ear to improve hearing


By RIC LIUENBERG
Vi.tt.9 tS, n '..r ;p..ui d s : ilt
SEBRING
It had to happen. a computer
Small enough to fit in the ear
In its infant a fewn decades
ago. a typical data processor used
huge tape recorders, a primitive "hard
drive'" requiring a building sometimes
as large as a city block. By the middle
of the past decade, a three-gigab3 te
hard dn\e seemed enough processing
space for most people with smaller
models they could set on their desks
at home. And by then. even the largest
computers fit into about a quarter of
the space required about two decades
earlier.
Thanks mostly to celebrated com-
puter nerds and geeks in a place
called Silicon Valle,. the new millen-
nia opened upon computers small
enough to fit in the palm of a hand.
smaller than a bar of soap. thanks to a
chip off the old capacitor.
Capacitors hold electrical charges
and chips hold much more in the
smallest of sizes. bytes of electrical
energy that cannot be seen "ith een
the most expensive microscopes. a
computer small enough to fit in the
human ear.
This is all right w ith Judith
Greenley. She has one of these tiny
computers in each ear and \here% er
she goes every sound she hears is dig-
itally processed. Sounds are processed
through this tiny computer and con-
figured instantly to her auditory pro-
file her hearing tests that show
what frequencies she can hear and
what frequencies she has trouble hear-
ing.
Talking about her hearing destiny,
Greenley said, "The only way I can.
describe itis when she,put the first
one in my left ear, I said, 'Wow, it's
real.'
She added, "The sound is unbelie' -
able;"
She said it was like hearing for the
first time.
"I have natural hearing; I have no
feedback, no squawks. I pick up the

telephone and you can't hear it doing
it. but the hearing aid know s even
before \ou get the phone to \our ear
that it know it has a phone call com-
ing at us."
This computer chip knows what she
w ants to hear.
"Ho%\ it knows, I don't know, but I
think \our brain has a little bit to do
w ith it." Greenley Said.
A crow ded room is no longer a
cacophony of frustrating and weari-
some noise.
"I can hear things I could never,
ever hear before "
Even gravel crunching under her-
feet.


-It's absolutely astounding.-'
She's worn one or another type of
hearing aids for about 20 sears.
National Board Certified Hearing
Aid Specialist Roseann Kiefer puts
clients through a battery of tests, a
process that eventually brings listen-
ers to their full auditory potential, a
clinical way of explaining Starkey
Laboratories revolutionary product.
"What makes Destiny hearing aids
so unique is instead of like digital
hearing aids in the past "%ere single-:
level digital chips you, could program
much like you program your VCR or
your microwave to do something,
Destiny is now a multi-lev el chip,"


Kiefer.said.
Destiny remembers just like a little
computer in the ear, she said.
"The computer in the ear \ ill actu-
ally make recommendations on ho\\
the processor should be functioning."
In other v\ords, the closest thing yet
to the way the human ear and brain
respond to sounds has become the
destiny for people w ith limited but-
improvable hearing. .
Kiefer said, "Literally, v. ith a click
of the button, we can apply the rec-
ommendations based on their environ-
ment.'.'" .
Eden Prairie, Minnesota-based
Starkey Laboratories Inc. is no


stranger to millions of hearing aid
clients worldwide. Since its start in
1967 as William Austin's Professional.
Hearing Aid Ser\ ice in nearby St.
Louis Park. four .ears later. Austin
acquired Starkey and the search for
Destiny began.
With 33 facilities in IS countries
and a %workforce of more than 4.000.
Starkey is the world's leading manu-
facturer of custom hearing instru-
ments.
With Destiny on the market.
Starkey's cutting-edge technology
offers something that makes it even
more unique. According to Jason
Hombach, Starkey's marketing man-
ager. "This hearing aid's uniqueness is
attributable to an active feedback
interceptor." exactly\ the way Greenle\
described her new listening expen-
ence.
Along with feedback elimination.
Kiefer noted another advance in
Starkey's new product. Destiny can
focus its digital computer the \way nat-
ural hearing responds to listening
decisions people make everyday in all
kinds of noise, like hearing a cellular
phone go off in a crowd.
"\We don't turn things up and down
anymore. "%e speed up how the hear-
ing aid controls the sound" in
nanoseconds almost as fast as the
human brain processes natural hear-
ing.
Wauchula resident Annette Lamar
got her new hearing aids a few
months ago and added a humorous
anecdote from her experience. After
she met up with her Destin\ tnins,
her marriage met a little ripple in their
usually peaceful home. She began
complaining when her husband held
the remote and turned up the volume
so he could hear the TV better.
Lamar suggested he get his ears
checked.
"There's nothing wrong w ith my
hearing, just take out your hearing
aids," he retorted.
Hearing the story, Kiefer laughed.
"The first thing we do is get the
wax out."

decisions.
It's a call for anarchy, of
course. Freedom means anar-
chy.
Democracy means people
decide how much anarchy they
will abide.
With much of the world liv-
ing in absolute freedom, we get
some very interesting video
footage from places where peo-
ple are running wild, some of it
disturbing video when human
blood flows.
People with access to world-
wide American broadcasters
will tune in, Some western
European broadcasters-, will
pick up satellite feeds election
night, Nov. 7. This same
evening, around the world, they
will watch how democracy
works in the nation that boasts
of its capacity to handle it.
'Those that watch will be
looking for any smack of tam-
pering. Even after the election,
there are, bound to be chal-
lenges in some vote tallies, and
they will watch these chal-
lenges. They will watch and lis-
ten carefully to our rationale for
our system.
With only a few days to go,
they must wonder why some
Americans are still arguing
about the balloting.
Why would anyone try to
compromise the voting process


and contaminate the
outcome?
Residing in differ-
ent countries, many.
of these souls watch-
ing know _their gov-'
ermunents are corrupt,
but they've earned to
live with it and man-
age to stay alive.
ER S Where there is
worldwide access to
America's election
be night broadcasts, per-,
nberg .haps as manN as' abil-
lion people in more
than 150 nations will
be watching how we do it here,
do it without bloodshed, with-
outv Improvised Explosive
Devices, -without lethal hatred.
You can bet a lot of people in
the Middle East- will be watch-
ing, especially in Iraq.
For myself,! I hope and pray
that it will be a well run .elec-
tion, that every ballot counts -
even mine.
In the voting booth, I'll be
looking over my shoulder at the
rest of the world watching how
I %oted and how0 my 'ote was
counted. Never mind about the
"secret" vote. I %want them to
know how I voted and how our
election system made sure my
vote counted.
Will it count?
I guess we'll know after the
election, when they sort it all
,out, everyone watching around
the World.
And I'll be watching, too,
glued to the returns until I final-
ly fall asleep.
I just hope there are no mis-
steps along the voted pathway.
And I hate to think that we
will have destroyed our credi-
bility in the world, while bow-
ing to a golden calf.

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


Working the young mind,


For his birthday ip July, my
son Daniel got a book of 735
science experiments, from his
sister. I thought it was a pretty
cool idea because he loves to
"see how things work."
Being a boy, he likes to stay
busy.,The busier I can keep him,
the less trouble he gets in
around the house.
Not too long ago I replaced
my ceiling fan in the living
rooni. A friend suggested that I
give Daniel the old fan and let
him tear it, apart. I did and then
he did, but he kept it neat. He
put all of the screws, wire caps,
everything in a bowl instead of
scattering it across the carpet.
It took him just two evenings
but he had that fan and motor
stripped down to nothing,
- Could he put it together
again? "Mom, you didn't tell
me I had to do that," he remind-
ed me.
I didn't give him a hard time
about it. because I hadn't sug-
gested that he might put it back
together. That would have been
thoughtful of me, then maybe
he'd paid a little more attention
to how he stripped it down.
A week or so later Daniel


A different

approach
Editor:
With so many police officers
being injured or, killed when
stopping vehicles on highways,
why not have the police offi-
cers approach the vehicle from
the right-hand.side of the vehi-
cles?
It may save injuries and
lives. ,
John G. Brusca
Sebring


When did the

leaders know?
Editor:
,-" 'am rio -stranger to the
Republican Party in Highlands
County.
I served several campaign'
committees-in the 2004 elec-
tions, my daughter was co-
chair of a campaign committee,
my son (through myself as his
guardian even contributed
space for the Bush '04 head-
quarters in Highlands County.
On June 28, I contacted (a
Republican Party representa-
tive) in regards to a Mark Foley
campaign sign that had been
placed at the'Heron Bay Center
by the Highlands County
Republican Party. I was upset
that the sign along with anoth-
er that is the subject of a differ-
ent letter) had been placed
without the land' owner's
knowledge or permission, and
even more so as I had been
unable to get any response
from e-mails, letters, or phone
calls to Mark Fole '"s office in
regards to problems Michael'
John was experiencing.
Therefore, we could not and
did not support Mark Foley for
re-election. He apologized 'for
the placement of the sign and
stated that there was no excuse
for an elected representative'
not responding and that he, (a
Republican Party representa-
, tive), would call me back the
next day with a response.
On July 1, I received a call
from (a Republican 'Party rep-
resentative) informing me that
everyone was unavailable due
to the Fourth of July holiday
and he would get back to me.
On or about July 28, I again
called (a Republican Party rep-
resentative) and was told that
Mark Foley's office had major
problems and that he could not
help me in anyway concerning
Mark Foley or his office and
that Mark" Foley had bigger
problems than not answering
my e-mails.
I could not imagine the cir-
cumstances where a Repub-
lican Party county leader could
not intervene on behalf of a
constituent much less a party
regular.
I don't know what he knew. I
do know when he knew it, July
28. Three months before the
"October surprise." He knew
there were problems so severe
that Mark Foley's office was
unable to function. And he said
nothing.
Speaker of the House Dennis
Hastert has. said anyone who

'Littles' have

grand time
'Editor:
How can you properly thank
someone who gives you the
opportunity for a life-changing
experience? On Saturday, Oct.
14, more than 20 Little
Brothers and Little Sisters had
,just such an opportunity, thanks
to. the members of the
Experimental Aircraft
Association and Sebring
Regional Airport. -
For more.than two hours the
pilots of the EAA gave our
Littles a chance to ride in a
variety. of aircraft and, get a'
bird's-eye view of Highlands
County. For most of them it
was their first flight.
I want to give a big thank
you to Jack Pace, fixed base
operations customer service,
for taking the lead in arranging
for the use of the Sebring
Regional Airport facilities,
organizing activities, and for
putting up with bur Saturday


morning invasion.
:George Eshenbach and Joe
Barnhart recruited EAA pilots
Eric Seignv and Bob Vander
Ploeg, as well as. fle\ their o%%n
aircraft. Gorge Pope and a
couple of worker bees kept
flights in order and on sched-
ule. And David Galati was able
to take parents and smaller
children in his six-passenger
Aero Commande'r.
Big Brothers Big Sisters pro-
vides one-on-one mentoring
support to children and teens in
Highlands and Hardee coun-
ties.
Mentors, who can spend one
hour a week reading to a stu-
dent in school, are needed now.
Please call .402-9001.
A big thank you goes out to
all the pilots and others who
volunteered to be "Bigs for a
Day" and who gave our Littles
an experience they will never
forget.

Superstitions
Remember all those harm-
less nursery rhymes you
used to say while avoiding
cracks in the sidewalk, or
around the ladder, or open-
ing night of the new show?
Do you think you're not
superstitious? Never threw
salt over your shoulder? Do
you put your umbrella up
inside a room to dry it out,
or do you find a sheltered
place on the porch (www.
corsinel.com/trivia/scart'.htm
1)? For any of us who saw
Mary Poppins, we would
happily shake hands with a
chimney sweep and know
that "good luck u\ould rub
off on you." I'm sure you
have said at least once in
your life "an apple a
day." That. my friend, is a
superstition (ivir.oldsuper
sltirions.com/general.lihtmil).
This week. while driving
on Route 635 toward the
Country Club of Sebring, I
Ssaw a white horse grazing.
Yup, I licked my left thumb.
made a wish. then stuck m)
thumb into my right palm
(w1wi.dogluiise. coinusuper
siitions4.asp). When I
looked on the above Web
site though, it didn't say
anything about which hand
to use. That must be a
Midwest tradition. ,
Having been an acti' e
participant on- and off-stage
at Highlands Little Theatre
and other stage productions
around the country. I am
\ery familiar %with the
phrase. "break a leg" InM.w
highlandsliietheaIlre.orgg).
Until researching the phrase
for this article though. I %will
admit I had no idea of the
origin of the phrase.
Apparently, I am not alone
in this lapse. I like the expla-
nation of ham ing so many
curtain calls at the end of a
stellar performance that the
pulls on the front stage cur-
tains called "legs" literally
break, thus, "break a leg"
i: iinw.w'ordorigins.org/1'o/rds
/LetterB/breakaleg.iminl).
Did you know that "in the
Tampa, Florida area it has
long been believed alligator
sightings cause athlete's
foot?" Go to the Web site
htp:.//eni.wikipedia.ortg/wiki/
Superstitions to learn more.
Maybe w\e better be talking
to the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers doctor about that
being a problem w ith the
team?
STiskaidekaphobia is the
fear of the number 13 and is
common among people of
European descent. The spe-
cific fear of Friday the 13th
is called paraskavedekama-
phobia or friggatriskaideka-
phobia.
The Web site iww.oldsu
perstitions.com/ claims to
have the largest collection of
superstitons on the Internet.
There are many superstitions
pertaining to do's and don't
of \\eddin2s. Did you know
the bride must enter the
main door and not trip,
hence the tradition of the
groom carrying the bride
over the threshold? Of
course, there are better days,
months and times to marry
that w ill bring good luck
(ww. oldsuperstiion s. cont/w
Sedding.hminF). Maybe that's
what is causing our divorce
rate to skyrocket people
just haven't followed the
right superstitions..
Perhaps the best loved
superstition, especially for
all of us lovers of "It's A
Wonderful Life," is that
when a bell rings, an angel

Joll explained. "I make many sketches and I look for
references to complete the composition."

Artist Owen Jolly with his oil on canvas work tilled 'The
Marble Players.' Jolly said he was inspired by a photo
he saw of a single boy playing marbles. He used this
subject to create a composition of a group of boys
watching a marble game. adding the cars and other
background details.

own comic books to entertain classmates in elemen-
tary school. He sketched and studied to improve his
artistic skills and won .recognition and awards from an
early age.
In his senior year. his portrait of the Jamaican
prime minister entered in the Jamaican Festimal Art
Competition won him a scholarship to the Jamaica
School of Art. After graduation, he taught at
Clarendon College for 17 years and %won many awards
and medals for his paintings.
Jolly mo'ed to the United States in 1987 and
worked as an illustrator in New York Cit.. He also
caught art and continued to paint, showing in exhibi-
lions in New York. His subjects and landscapes range
from the Jersey shore, to Amish country in
Pennsylvania, to a parking lot in a city. and back to
Jamaica, which he and his family still visit every year.
In 2005. Jolly and his family moved to Sebring.
where he said he has been spending a lot more tune
painting and getting to know the artists around the
area.
Jolly teaches classes at Highlands Art League for
both children and adults. Currently Jolly is offering

By LARRY LEVEY

TAMPA His name is Richard
Ambrosius and he's one of the leaders of
the charge to change the wa%\ we as a
society view getting older. As he writes
in his book. "Choices and Changes."
I have challenged people to become:e
involved in their communities, .to begin
second third, fourth i careers, to contin-
ue to learn and grow, and ... to develop
a positke self-image."
Ambrosius. a consultant, writer and
motivational speaker ih the field of
aging, was one of the speakers at the
Florida Conference on Aging. His talk,
centered on how the society looks down
on aging.
He urged that people take a look at the
u words they use in talking about growing
older, and how these words create a neg-
ative image. He said people should
'retire" such words as "retire" and
'retirement" and even "seniors,"
Retirement has come to mean that
period of life when one "quits working."
In other. words, one "becomes old" and
no longer a productive member of socie-
ty. "The focus shifts from who you are
and what you do to what you once did
and who you used to be."
The %word "retirement" is usually,
defined as quitting, \. withdrawing from or
gi ing up. It "implies your self worth
and your worth to society are a thing of
the past. Such an implication is negative,
unfounded and dangerous to one's
health,"
As Ambrosius writes, "It is fine to
'retire' for the evening, ... but not from


Aging and the arts: 'The life comes back'
By LARRY LEVEY

Here's a vivid example of a %world where growing older is looked upon as a
plus, not as a downer.
It's happening, according to a recent "New York Times" article, in Burbank.
Calif.. where an apartment complex has been turned into the Burbank Senior
Artists Colony.
The place attracts both veterans from the w orld of art to amateurs w ho want to
turn their artistic dreams into reality.
... the colony is the latest spin on late-life living." the article said. "... not
everyone %wants the old-school model of golf course retirement...
The colony features a digital film editing lab. a theater, drama classes and stu-
dios open around-the-clock for all the musicians, painters, writers, actors sculp-
tors and other artists %who have taken up residence inm what's called "a community
for creative older people."
It's not only a fun, stimulating and exciting setting, it's also a healthy one. The
article quotes a 2001 study that showed people 65 and older who participated in
the arts on a regular basis reported fewer %isits to the doctor, less need for med-
ication, and less likely to become depressed.
The colony has been cited as a model for creative aging by the National
Endow% ment for the Arts for its emphasis not on the problems of aging but on the
potential of aging.
And as one resident described the new arrivals to the colony. "You see them
come in %with dead eyes. Then. the life comes back."


life."
Instead of "retirement," he suggests
people talk in terms of "the next stage of
life," to see life's second half as "a time
of renewal.and meaning. not decline and
dependency."
The other )words people use to
describe "retirees," like seniors and
golden agers, have now come to mean a
group of people "to be offered discounts,
catered to and cared for." And the critical
danger here is that's the image that too
many older people have of themselves.
Ambrosius blames the media for por-
traying older people as forgetful, feeble
or foolish. They're the group that "has


fallen and can't get up." In fact, as a Yale
University study found, "The more sen-
ior citizens watch television, the greater
their negative images of aging may be."
He suggests using such w ords as
"wisdom-keepers" to replace "elders or
seniors," as "health and rehabilitation
center" to replace "nursing home," ag
"life plans" -to replace "retirement
plans."
People need, he writes, to find posi-
tive words "worthy of the best educated,
Wealthiest, healthiest and most active
middle-aged and older adults in history."

DIVERSIONS



Moviegoers never 'Cena' movie like this


Professional wrestling is one
of those cult diversions I just
never could get into, even
though I've had plenty of
opportunities.
I grew up during its ram-
bunctious heyday, The Ultimate
Warrior and Macho Man Randy
Savage chest-pounding in their
technicolor spandex while I ate
dry cereal out of the box. At age
10, I suppose I watched "Hulk
Hogan's Rock N' Wrestling"
like any red-blooded American
male, but even then I found the
cartoon to be every bit as
believable as the "'real" thing.
Back then it was known as the
World Wrestling Federation and
the characters were divided into
anabolically puinped-up good
guys and bad guys goofing
around to teach us lessons like
being a good sport and saying
no to drugs. :
Ah, the iron).
'Fast forward to 2006 when
the top-tier wrestling league,
now known as the World
Wrestling Entertainment Inc.,
- features e'en more supernatu-
rally ripped meat-heads and a
gaggle of silicone divas to boot.
Like so many things in our
enhanced entertainment culture,
the wrestling market has lost its
innocence, or at least the facade
of innocence.
The latest of these meat-
heads to venture into the film
industry is John "The
Franchise" Cena in the action
flop "The Marine." I'd be lying
if I said I'd hoped to be pleas-*
antly surprised as I settled in
my theater seat. The most you
can hope for going into a movie
this D.O.A. is idiotic entertain-
ment. If it can find the right
mode of brainlessness, maybe
you'll get something endearing
like "Roadhouse" (1989) or any

To the director's credit, we
know exactly% \\here the "ridicu-
lous-bar" has been set from the
opening credits. Like a recruit-

The trademark sequences in


-The Marine" are the slow-
motion, fiery explosions and
once things start blowing up, it
never ends. There are many fun
games to. play during this
stinker, like. "count how many-
times we seeCena leaping from
a ball of fire" or "list the objects
by which Cena gets, knocked
across the noggin." My list
includes: JLead pipe. tio-by-
four, tin drum, fire extinguisher.
and a piece of sculpture in an
office building (I'm sure I
missed some).
Cena resembles a huge, well-
marbled side of beeft, as does
his acting ability, so it's impor-
tant for the players around him
to fit. His saucy. bombshell
s% ife is played by Kelly Carlson
from "Nip/Tuck." w he also

The stee\-eyed bad guy is
played by Robert Patrick. You
kno\\ him as the T-1000 in
"Terminator 2." He is cliche,
both %witty and psychotic, but
probably the most entertaining
thing happening onscreen.
The product placement is
about as subtle as a sledgeham-

Cena experiences). "The

To the Christian, the church


So wrote the Apostle Paul in
Romans- 12: 4,5. the fellowship
of Christians, with each other
and with Jesus Christ. is graph-
ically portrayed in the picture of
the church as the body of
Christ. Can the Christian exist
without the church'? Can a fin-
ger exist without the body? You
see, we are members of Christ
and thus we are bound to each
other. What one member feels'
affects the other members. just
as in your body: "The members
should have the same care one
for another. And whether one
member suffer, all the members
suffer w ith it" based from 1

Lambert will be preaching on
the topic of "The Two Natures"


that reside in each believer. The
church has been going through
the Statement of Faith and is
now on Article 13.
Article 13 reads as follows:
"We believe that every saved
person possess two natures -
spiritual and carnal; with provi-
sion made for victory of the
new nature over the old nature
through the power of the
indwelling Holy Spirit; and that
all claims to the eradicatio of
the old nature in this life are
unscriptural."
Now if anyone did not under-
stand the previous paragraph,
then they are invited to come
and hear Lambert explain what
they believe the Bible teaches
about the two natures. The sup-
porting Scripture is Romans
8:12,13; Galatians 5:16-25;
Ephesians 4:22-24; 1 John 1:8...
There is.a section; reserved
for the deaf in front.
Families are encouraged to
sit together during the worship
service. A special story for the
children will be told from the
pulpit and a "quiet bag" is
available for young ones during
thesermnon.
During Bible study and
prayer meeting, the church
prays for each member and
attender of the church and for
their children by name.
The next concert of praise

guest musicians George and
Kathy Abbas. Everyone is invit-
ed to join the church. There is
no charge, just an optional love
offering. There will be a dinner
following the concert in the fel-
lowship hall.
The new church lending
library will be opening soon.
Members will be told when the
doors are open.
The librarian, Patsy Coriell,
has done a terrific job, along
with her hard working assistant
Virginia Moody. The church
appreciates all the donations of
books that has made this min-
istry possible.

First Assembly of God
AVON PARK When the
pastor preaches in his bathrobe
and a queen size bed sits in
front of the church, either
church is so boring the pastor
has trouble staying awake, or
something exciting is happen-
ing. It's exciting at Avon Park
First Assembly of God. Pastor
John E. Dumas has begun a
dynamic new series entitled
"Daring to Dream." This
Sunday's message focuses on
overcoming a painful past.
Everyone should come and
allow God to renew their
dreams for the future as they let
go of their past.

First Baptist
of Placid Lakes
LAKE PLACID At the
morning worship service
Sunday, the title of the message

In fact. Sebnng has broken so many

"This feels like I can go eat now."


Freeland joked while celebrating the
moment with her team. "'We all beat our
personal best times. That \was our goal

History
The Red Devils lost to the Marauders
14-7 last year in a game that was
delayed nearly a month due to
Hurricane Wilma.
Last Week
Avon Park: Lost to Hardee 55-6.
Clearwater CC: Beat Frostproof 20-

Game Notes
m The win over Frostproof puts the
Marauders into the playoffs for the
10th straight season.
* CCC held Frostproof star RB
Carlton Thomas to 150 yards on 16
carries, 98 of those yards coming on

Sept. 15.
Coach Speak
Earnest Perkins: "We're looking for
a different outcome this week after
last week's debacle. I think I made
my presence known in practice. I
know they were going into hostile
territory and I Ihink playing in front
of that type of crowd might have
gotten to them, but in spite of that.
in order to win the big games in the
future, you're going to have to play
(in that situation). I'm looking for a
high-sconng game tonight).
Defensively, I always say we can
match up with anybody, but after last
week . I didn't even recognize our
defense last week."

* Verot QB Bulch Moore had
1.471 passing yards, 284 of them
coming last week. Moore also ran for
aTD and kicked a field goal last
week.
Coach Speak
Shaw Maddox: "BishopVerot's
been a perennial powerhouse down
here for a long time but they
graduated 25 seniors last year so
they're kind of in a rebuilding mode.
They still have a very good
quarterback and they throw the ball
very well. They throw it often. At
least two out of three downs if not
three out of three. We worked on our
pass drops a lot (in practice). We've
got to play better on defense and
we've got to run the ball like we
have the past few weeks to control
the dock. We've thrown five
touchdown passes in the past two
weeks and we've forced 20
turnovers and only turned the ball
over 15 times in seven games.That
helps."

crosstown rival Centennial.
Game Notes
m The Jaguars average just 169
yards of offense per game, 129 of
those on the ground.
* Port St. Lucie was outgained
485-190 in last week's loss.
* Sebring gave up touchdowns on
a 99-yard tumble relum and a 76-
yard punt return last week.
* Sebring quarterback A.C. Wilson
is questionable for tonight's game
after injuring his hand in last week's
defeat.
Coach Speak
Jared Hamlin: "(Port St. Luciei is
much improved from last year.They
run a very unconvenbonal offense.
They've kind of combined the old
spread offense with the single wing
We're going to have to read our keys.
One thing about last week was that
our intensity ;n practice wasn't where
it needed to be and it showed. We
weren't getting game reps in practice
like we should have This week we
worked at getting those reps in at
game speed."

High School Volleyball


DeSoto, referee end Blue Streaks' season

Bulldogs score match point on controversial call -.


By MARCUS WILKINS
Sports Writer
WAUCHULA The
Sebring Lady Blue Streaks sea-
son came to an end Wednesday
night in heartbreaking fashion
when they were swept by
DeSoto 18-25, 21-25, 21-25 in
the district tournament.
Heartbreaking? After a
sweep?
The contest ended with a
controversial five-second serv-
ing violation against Sebring
just as they were staging a mon-
umental comeback in the third
game with DeSoto clinging to a
24-21 lead on match point.
Sebring had fallen behind 24-
13 when Hannah Shoop took
over and served the Streaks to
eight unanswered points. With
every serve, Sebring gained
confidence and a fourth game
seemed imminent.
Then the call, which came
without warning, ended the
match much to the disappoint-
ment of the Streaks, their coach
and their fans.
"The rule is that you get five
seconds after they blow the
whistle to when you serve the
ball," Sebring coach Venessa
Sinness said through her tears.
"Hannah had served like that
the whole game. (The official)


never said anything about it to
our captains. Most of the time
the official will say, 'Watch No.
19, she's taking a long time.' It
was a horrible call.
"Would we have won? I
don't know, but that's not the
point. It was too close of a game
to have it end on such a goofy
call."
Sinness had stressed to her
squad that defense would be the
top priority going into match
against a heavily favored
DeSoto team. The Streaks start-
ed with that in mind, taking an
8-5 lead in game one.
Libero Ricki Albritton had a
diving dig early on followed by
a followed by a massive spike
from Whitney Lee to take the
lead.
DeSoto took a while to get
warmed up, and with Sebring
using a lot of double blocking
to keep the Bulldogs' imposing
net game at bay, the contest was
evenly matched in the first
game.
Once DeSoto stars Brittany
Muse and Caitlin Hall got
going, though, Sebring had
trouble standing its ground.
Hall was particularly evasive in
game one, coming seemingly
out of nowhere for seven kills


early on.
Aspen Kuhn answered back
with a spike of her own to
regain serve, but DeSoto had
begun to execute its game plan
and get into a rhythm.
That momentum carried over
to game two when the Bulldogs
put on an impressive display.
Moving the ball around the
court and using the height of 6-
foot Muse and 5-foot-10 Wendy
Williams at the net, DeSoto
scored in bunches while the
Streaks scrambled just to get
serve back.
Sinness rallied her troops,
urging the girls to dig deep and
give it their best effort during
the final break. Unfortunately
for the Streaks, DeSoto stepped
its game up as well, mowing
through the Streaks until
Sebring's ill-fated final run.
"Our defense off the block
was what we struggled with the
most, just because we didn't
practice it enough," Sinness
said. '"We definitely did a good
job of slowing (Muse) down.
I'm proud of the girls. We want-
ed to get to the district finals.
That was our goal. We were
almost there, but with only two
seniors, we have nothing to
complain about."

LAKE BUENA VISTA -.
Justin Rose dropped his putter,
put his hands on his knees and
dropped his head. He paused,
looked up and nianaged a wry
smile, knowing just how close
he came to shooting a 59.
Rose missed a 14-foot birdie
putt on No. 18, leaving him a
stroke away from matching the

Got the racing bug? Autocross event at SIR may be just the ticket


By TREY CHRISTY
News-Sun
SEBRING Living in
Sebring, residents get used to
the sight of exotic sports cars
and purpose-built race cars
being pulled on trailers behind
motor homes, or even the occa-
sional Corvette pulling a small
trailer with tires on it.
But this weekend is special.
Area residents have the chance
to play race car driver for the
weekend without it costing
them hundreds of dollars in
tires, track fees and safety
equipment.
On Saturday and Sunday the
Sebring track and the Sports
Car Club of America are host-
ing an autocross Saturday and
Sunday, and while renting out
the track with a group for the
afternoon to do laps may be
hundreds of dollars alone, rac-
ing autocross this weekend will
only cost participants $40 a daN.
and on top of that, drivers can
race any car they cari bring.
Past events have seen any-
thing from stock Hondas and
e'en the occasional sport truck.
Courses are marked out %with
orange cones, so the w orst thing
that can happen is to knock over
a cone or to lose i our w a). scor-

To drivers new to the sport of autocrossing it may look like a sea of cones, but to the weekend warrior

most often autocrossers them-

registration, marking out the
course and doing everything it
takes to set up and tear down an
event.
Drivers as young as 15 are
encouraged to come out and
drive with their learner's per-
mit, and usually take away
more than a need to speed on
local streets. Ken Hill boasts to
co-workers about what a safe
driver his son has become, even
at the young age of 16.
"He gets to have fun in a
responsible area and doesn't
have to push it on the street," he
said. "Also, he has demonstrat-
ed in a potential bad situation
that he can handle it. A car
changed lanes on top of him
and he avoided the car and con-
trolled his car safel,. which is
directly because of autocross."
Ken e'.en thinks that he
"could sleep in the passenger
seat with him driving at 16.

could do." The Hills are part of

in the process and getting a lit-

"Its definitely a plus that he's
into cars as much as I am. It's
something we can share," Steve
Hill said about his dad. "Well, I
got the best of both worlds"
said Ken Hill. "I got something
to bond %v ith mi son and I knew
he would learn what he could
do and not do in a car."
Events are held on any large
section of pavement with the
site owner's permission.
Interested persons can come by
the track today to check out
%%hat its all about and to pre-
register Registration is also
held the morning of both events
from 8-9 a.m. both Saturday
and Sunday.
While this version of afford-
able racing is open to everyone,
spectators are not encouraged to
come under the SCCA rules,
unless the\ are there to see what
its all about and to participate
themselves.
