New clinic an answer to many prayers


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Wendell
Williams and Diane Furr feel
blessed and overwhelmed all at
once.
They are just two of a grow-
ing number of people involved
with Samaritan's Touch Care
Center, an organization deter-
mined to bring quality health
care to those residents of
Highlands County who have no
access to health care except for
the hospital emergency.room.
Their goal is to create a pri-
mary care clinic with a dispen-
sary, where people w without
insurance and earning within
150 percent of the federal gov-
ernment's poverty guidelines,
may go and receive preventive
and continuing care.
"We want to help the people
who fall between the cracks,"
Furr-said.
It is a faith-based project.
"Bathed in prayer," is how she
described it.
She said that on one hot
Saturday afternoon, more than
100 people from three churches
spent two hours praying for the
ministry.
What staggers her, and
Williams, is the speed with
which the free clinic is coming
together, as if in answer to all
those prayers. At every turn,
Williams and Furr said, every-
thing needed has materialized.
For example, last year the
clinic was just a dream -
something the board of direc-
tors of the Christian Women's
Job Corps had come to believe
was necessary for the overall
economic health of the county,
as well as being the right thing
to do, but had no idea of how to
make happen.
Then, in the matter of weeks,
and as the result of a series of
accidents "the Lord's 'acci-


dents'," Furr said, smiling
broadly the dream gained
definition.
The first accident occurred
when, during a random conver-
sation about the need for a free
clinic, Williams and Furr
learned about the Highlands
County Health Facilities
Authority. The authority distrib-
utes grants to non-profit health
care facilities in the county.
Even better than learning
about it, however, was learning
about it in time to apply for and
receive seed money last year.
That money: was budgeted
for a feasibility study:
Then the second accident
happened. Furr sat next to a
provider from Florida City dur-
ing a health care forum. It
turned out that individual repre-
sented another faith-based clin-
ic doing exactly the same kind.
of work the Samaritan's Touch
Care Center wanted.to do.
Even better, that person gave
Furr an inches thick binder with
a step by step outline explaining
exactly\ how to set a free, faith-
based clinic into motion..
No sooner had the Lord
showed them how to set up the
clinic, Furr said, then He
showed them where it should be
built.
That knowledge came with
,the third accident. The board of
directors for the now defunct
Sun Room Senior Center voted
to donate two of its buildings
and two adjacent empty lots on
Herring Avenue to the
Samaritan's Touch Care Center.
Included w% ith the buildings.
which -ere designed to deliver
medical services and contain
three examination rooms, were
furnishings including file cabi-
nets, desks, chairs and shelving.
There were even some pieces of
medical equipment, like an eye
examination station.


Options abound for


trick -or-treaters


By MAlT MURPHY
News-Sun
Halloween is often a time of
trepidation for parents of
young, would-be trick-or-
treaters. Some parents feel
uneasy taking their children
house to house.
For those parents who want
their children to have a good
time, but in a different way,
there will be several options in
Highlands County again this'
year.
In Avon Park, Fellowship
Baptist Church will hold its
llth annual fall festival on
Saturday from 4-8 p.m. The
event brings together local
churches and businesses to
present an alternative to tradi-
tional trick-or-treating.
"It's a way for our church
and other churches, especially
in Avon Park, to give back to
the community," youth minister
Richard Ferguson said.
The event is completely free
and will feature food, drinks
and games, as well as live
entertainment from a local
dance studio and Christian
bands.
There will be several inflat-
able games for the kids to
enjoy, as well as ground-level
games where kids can win
prizes.. The church expects
around 4,500 people for the
event.
On Sunday, Lakeshore Mall
in Sebring will be holding
Mall-o-ween from 5-6 p.m.
Kids (and even adults) are
invited to come to the mall in
costume, and various mall
stores will be handing 'out
candy.
For the preschoolers, the
Sebring Downtown Merchants
Association will be handing out
candy around the circle from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday. Area
schools bring the dressed-up
kids to the Circle to get their
candy, giving the kids a double
whammy of good things --
missing school and getting
candy.
Instead of having trick-or-
treating hours' like Avon Park
and Sebring, Lake Placid is
holding its Kid's Fest at
DeVane Park Saturday from 5
to 8 p.m.
The event is open primarily
to children in Lake Placid, and
there will be booths set up serv-


ing hot dogs, hamburgers, and
cotton candy.
The festival presents Lake
Placid children with a "safe
environment to trick or treat,"
Eileen May, chief executive
officer of the Lake Placid
Chamber of Commerce said.
"Sometimes, parents just don't
want (their children) going
from house to house an. more."
Kids will be able to enjoy
plenty of games, including pin
the tail on the dragon, animal
dunking, face painting, hnd
other activities.
Children's games and face
painting will be available in
booths set up around the park.
The event, sponsored by the
chamber and Lake Placid
Merchants Association, is a
good alternative for parents
weary of taking their kids trick-
or-treating.
May said around 400 ele-
mentary school-aged children
participated last year.
For those looking to partici-
pate in traditional, door-to-door
trick-or-treating, hours differ
depending on what city you're
in. In Avon Park, trick-or-treat-
ing hours are Saturday from 6 -
8 p.m. In Sebring, hours are
Saturday from 6-9 p.m.


With that unsolicited dona-
tion, the equivalent of about
$500,000, the center neared
reality.
In fact, relying on their faith,
Williams and Furr believe the
clinic will be up and running by
the middle of January at the lat-
est.
Already Luis Pena has
offered to serve as medical
director, and a second $50,000
grant. from the Highlands
County Health Facilities
Authority will help fund the
position. The center will also be
staffed by a nurse practitioner
or physician's assistant, a direc-
tor of administration, a spiritual
director or chaplain, and,their
support people, about 10 posi-
tions in all.
Volunteers of all kinds will
be needed too, :including doc-
tors, nurses, medical clerks,
medical transcriptionists,. lab
assistants and interpreters.
."Just because our sern ices
will be free," Furr said, "that
doesn't mean we x ill offer
shoddy service. We go into this
with a deep sense of responsi-
bilit[. We want to honor the
One who is the rock of our faith
with a high level of care and
.compassion.

us. It is bigger than \%e are, and
will go on a long time. I am

the year as part of their regular
curriculum.
Since students, are able to go
at a faster pace, the HAART
science fair exhibit was truly
something to behold. It could
have easily passed for a middle
school science fair. Fifth-
graders in the HAART program
from all over Highlands County
were there to show off their sci-
ence skills, becoming scientists
in the process by using the sci-
entific method for analysis of
their projects.. .
The different projects
touched on a %wide %ariery of,
subjects, frorn horticulture to.
chemical reactions. One such
project, the reaction of soda and
Mentos, dealt w ith w which soda
would react most violently
when mixed with the candy.


The popular conception thought
to be a m lth bN man\ has
received enough attention this
sear to make the popular show
"MIth Buisters."
Other projects dealt % ith how
much heat w as absorbed by dif-
ferent colors, which light
source would help a plant, grow
the fastest, among other vari-
ables from light to different
kinds of water to fertilizer to
soil. Students were deeply
entrenched in the scientific
method.
Students made their hypothe-
sis, w.hat. hevythink will happen
to their experiments, and at the
end using their results to draw a
conclusion as to w whether or not
their h pothesis w as correct,
and if not, what the result of the
project showed. --

Drugs are Bad
By CHASE CORLEY

Drugs are bad for you.
They're gonna bring you
down.
You might think you're cool

But, you'll be actin' like a
clown.

I'm drug free -
and I'm always gonna be.
You can make your choice,
if it's right, you'll rejoice.

Life is rough enough -
you don't need to make it
tough.
Find a real friend, and
stay away from drugs.

Say No to Drugs

Don't Do Drugs
By JONATHAN GERVAIS

Don't do drugs, it's very bad.
Don't do drugs, it will make
you sad.
If you do drugs, you won't
think right:
So, don't do drugs and you'll
be bright.:

So, do the smart thing, do
what you should.

Executive Editor
AVON PARK About 150
young people from across
Highlands County gathered at
Union Congregational Church
last week. It wasn't a church
function that they attended.
Instead, it swas a youth summit
- Giving Power to Dreams.
Cynthia Barrett, one of the
organizers, first saw w workshop
facilitator Denese Johnson and
Terry Joseph Jr. speak at a
Christian conference in
Orlando. She was so moved by
their messages that she came
home and shared her story w ith
Alh in Conner, pastor of Vision
Community Church.
"I told him that we had to get
them (Johnson and Josephi to
Avon Park. We need to have
them share their message w ith
our kids." Barrett said.
Within weeks Barrett and
Conner met with the Family
Christian Association of
America and South Floiida
Community College's Com-
munity Reach Out Program.
"We wanted to do something
to motivate our kids. They think
that their dreams are just
deferred and can't be a reality."
Barrett said.
Barrett worked closely\ with
Felecia Dozier, from the col-
lege's Community Reach Out
Program, and together the
\women organized a program
that none of the 100 or so teens
will soon forget.
"One of the things, Felecia
kept saying was 'if Nou build it.
they will come. If \ou build it
and make it positive, the kids
will learn from it.' And they
did. It was great and the kids
haven't stopped talking about
it. Even their parents hae con-
tacted us and let us know w% hat
an awesome time they had,"
Barrett said.
Johnson, a housing coun-
selor/manager for the National
Association of Real Estate
Brokers-Investment Division,
Inc., Housing Counseling
Agency, talked to the teens
about financing their dreams.
N1D-HCA is a Housing and


.'. ". -* ',
C.,ue., .:.f DAUJ B -RRE''T
Teens from across the county gathered last week at a Youth Summit
in A\on Park to learn more about sating mone3, making and keep-
ing good friends and. most importantly, following their dreams.


Urban Development approved
housing counseling agency .
Explaining that their dreams
are real. Johnson encouraged
teens to set a plan to achieve
their goals in life. She stressed
that the goals must be realistic
and the teens should save their
money to help them reach those
goals.
Joseph, director of operations
for The FLOYD House
Program. talked about the

BRAVO
Continued from 1A
As a security force, they were
trained to operate in an urban -
environment, enga-ing citizens
and assessing threats.
"We will start training -them
back into, reintegrate them back
into the field artillery mindset,"
Cabalo said, explaining that
"red legs" are accustomed to
shooting their rockets, moving
to hide locations or to new bat-
tle positions and communicat-
ing with maneuver units to
ensure those rockets go where
they're needed, when they're
needed.
They'll implement the
Army's training philosophy of
crawl, walk, run. At their annu-
al training scheduled for
August, they'll likely still be
walking.
But, the focus is on Monday
when the soldiers will have to
endure a 15-minute welcome
home ceremony before the
commanding officer allows the
first sergeant to dismiss the bat-
tery.
"That's what we're shooting
for," Cabalo said of the ceremo-
ny, which is being held around
noon Monday at the Arcadia
Army National Guard Armory,
787 W. Kelly Drive, Arcadia,
which is the home of Alpha
Battery.
Before the soldiers depart
Fort Stewart, Ga., which is a
short drive from Hunter
Airfield, they must undergo a
demobilization process that
includes medical, personnel and
financial records reviews.
"It's basically taking the
process they underwent to
deploy and reversing it,"
Cabalo said, explaining that the
process includes a variety of
briefings and debriefings.
They'll, leave Georgia early
Monday,. spending six to seven
hours on the road in buses
before arriving in Arcadia to
flag-waving, banner carrying
loved ones and supporters.
A welcome home dinner for
the soldiers and their families
followed by an open-to-the-
public celebration is being post-


Pink chain to highlight

ber of A Battery, 3rd Battalion, 116th Field Artillery. Katelyn, 2, and

poned until March at the
request of battery leadership,
said David Greenslade, execu-
tive director Avon Park
Chamber of Commerce.
Though an earlier party
would, be more timely,
Greenslade said it's going to be
done in conjunction with the
soldiers' return to normal
drilling status, rather than ask-
ing them to come when they're
getting reacqtiainted with fami-
ly, catching up on invaluable
time.
Their return, however, coin-
cides perfectly with Avon
Park's Christmas parade. over
which the soldiers N ill preside
as grand marshals this year's
theme, "I'll Be Home for
Christmas."
Last year, because the troops
were already deployed, their
spouses were the grand mar-
shals.
'The city is proud of the job
our local uifit has done in the
war on terrorism," Avon Park
City Manager C.B. Shirey said
Thursday.
His son Michael Shirey, the
unit's supply sergeant anoth-
*er full-time position at the
armory, called at 5:30 'a.m.


Thursday from Maine, but
Shirey and his wife won't be in
Arcadia to welcome their son
home because a trip to
Tennessee (to \isit another son)'
was already planned before the
unexpected early return of
Bravo.
"I'll probably see him a week
from Monday," Shirey, a retired
Air Force captain, said.

Regional Medical Center will
wrap itself in a "pink power
human chain" Saturday during
a Breast Health Fair on the hos-
pital grounds.
"One in nine women will be
touched with breast cancer at
some point in their lives,"
Kathleen Border, HRMC direc-
tor of marketing and public
relations, said Wednesday.
That statistic which some
sources report as one in eight
and others suggest is mislead-
ing will be represented in the
pink power chain.
Border said volunteers will
attempt to fully envelop, the
hospital while holding pink bal-
loons.
Eeix ninth person %%ill ha%\e

depicting the statistic.
The fair is scheduled from 9
a.m. to noon. and includes door
prizes throughout the, morning
including two free mammo-
grams from Dr. Patrick
Carruthers (\orth $285 each),


an estate plan from Sebring
attorney Jim McCollum worth
about $1,000 and other items
donated by area businesses.
The Pink Ribbon cake will
be cut about 10:30 a.m.
A health panel of the various
doctors a breast cancer patient,
would expect to see through the
course of treatment family
practice/internal medicine,
oncologist. radiologist, sur-
geon, plastic surgeon and
pathologist will field ques-
tions from 11 a.m. to noon.
"There'll be several breast
cancer survivors there too,"
Border said, explaining that
some are vocal while e others
prefer to be anony mous.
Volunteers are welcome to
come out and participate in the
chain, \xhich %w ill begin forming
after the panel discussion.
Border said.
Breasicancer.oirg said one in
eight women will contract
breast cancer. which is up from
the 1960s rate of one in 20.
In an interview with,


About.com's Women's Health
reporter Tracee Cornforth, med-
ical geneticist Dr. Patricia T.
Kelly said the one-in-nine sta-
tistic could be misleading,
"Risk information without a
time frame is rarely useful and
can often be misleading," Kelly
told Comforth. "For example, a
10 percent risk todaN is very
different from a 10 percent risk
spread o% er the next 10 years.'?
Kelly, \ ho recently wrote
"Assess Your True Risk of
Breast Cancer," broke down the
numbers, explaining that one in
nine is equal to 11 percent, and
that that figure is applied to
women from 20 to 80 years old.
But, "The risk from 20 to 50
is two percent," she said,'
explaining that after age 50 the
risk increases to nine percent.

STRIKE
Continued from 1A
"This jet is an electronic
nightmare," Livingston said of
the Strike Eagle. "It's a huge
logistical footprint." -
Though maintenance at
MacDill differs little from
maintenance done at Mountain
Home, he said moving ancillary
support from there to.here pre-
pares his unit for a deployment
looming on the horizon.
Wearing hearing protection,
Livingston watched as a ground
crew performed end of runway
checks looking for leaks and
verifying compartments are
shut while pilots brought the
jet to life; its twin engines roar-
ing.
With a final salute between
the pilot and crew chief fol-
lowed by a thumbs-up from the
cockpit, the F-15E taxied to the
runway, then took off.
Rather than flying east to
provide close air support and
surveillance to ground troops at
the Avon Park range, the Strike
Eagle went west, where fuel
stops in Texas and Colorado
allowed the pilots to be home in
about seven hours.
"They have to hop back
because they don't have tanker
support," Livingston said,
explaining that refueling in-
flight would have shaved three
hours from the trip back to
Mountain Home.
Capt. Tony Breck and 1st Lt.
John Peltier, F-15E pilots,
remained behind waiting for
their afternoon sorties.
"We're definitely getting
challenged by everything we
see and do," Breck said, dis-
cussing his first Atlantic Strike
experience. "In Idaho we train
only with Air Force guys."
Neither Breck nor Peltier
have been to Southwest Asia
but, like Livingston, they
expect to deploy there soon.
Though they train over a
desertin Idaho, both agreed that
Avon Park provides training
more relevant to the combat
environment of Operations
Iraqi and Enduring Freedom.
"All the different parties we
see on the ground (here) are
closer to what they're doing
over, there," Peltier said.
Added Breck, "Plus, there's
the urban type of stuff that we
don't have up in Idaho."


Missions typically last 1 1/2
hours. Before they fly, howev-
er, hours .of briefings help the
players come up with a game
plan anrid de-conflict any issues.
During the pre-game huddle,
as Breck described the briefs.
people such as Senior Airman
Paul Fletcher, an F-16 crew
chief, make the final flight
preparations or perform routine
maintenance if the plane is
don for a length of time.
-"They're the unsung heroes
out here," Capt. Tiffany
Payette, Central Air Forces
Command public affairs officer,
said.
Fletcher, who's been sta-
tioned at Nellis ,AFB in
California, Korea and Shaw
AFB in South Carolinfa plans to
re-enlist.
As Fletcher spoke with the
News-Sun, Sgt. Mike Shoulders
was on the ground, cleaning the
landing gear of Fletcher's
plane.
Its pilots were due in 30 min-:
utes to conduct their pre-flight
inspections. The Fighting
Falcon would be reads to roll
40 minutes after their arrival.
Though he hasn't deployed
to Iraq or Afghanistan, Fletcher
has supported Operation Noble
Eagle, the homeland security
aspect of the Global War- on
Terrorism.
"We provided air support for
the president," Fletcher said,
explaining that whenever' the
commander-in-chief flew, his
plane cleared the air space.
MacDill AFB is about 65
miles "as the crow flies" from
Avon Park's air space,. Air
Force Capt. John Platt, a
Warthog pilot, said. It takes him
about 20 minutes to get there.
The F-15E, described by
Breck as a "bigger, faster late-
'70s Dodge Charger kind of
plane," covers the same dis-
tance in about eight minutes.
Once they reach Avon Park,
the pilots check in with the air
support operations center on the
ground, providing mission
essential data such as their plat-
form type, weapons load out,
time available on station, etc.
Afterward, they fly holding
patterns high in the sky out
of sight, and sometimes out of
earshot. Using targeting pods,
they provide intelligence
reports and feed live video to
ROVER equipped units, and
are always ready to drop
bombs.

to


Yarbroughs promote photography business through Web


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK
A l and Peg Yarbrough, who
operate a small studio from
their Avon Park home, had
been thinking about using a Web site to
promote their photography services and
custom video album business.
After all, the couple already had
some experience in building other peo-
ple's Web sites. Problem was, they did-
n't have a clue about how to go about
choosing a Web host or how to use a
Web site to market their own business.
That was earlier this year. In April,
the Yarbrough's heard about a business
development workshop on something
called "E-Commerce," promising to
steer them to the right answers. Both
signed up for the workshop, held on the
Highlands campus of South Florida.
Community College.
"We felt w e w ou Id learn something
useful at, at least one of the two work-


engines. As a result. the small home-
based business. Photogra.phv in Action

spring. In addition, the'\ have had isi-
tors from 60 different countries,
Yarbrough pointed out.
Based on the tips the couple learned
from the original vv ork shop, the
Yarbrough's continue to learn as they
go. One big ad\ vantage tihe)' e discov-
ered: The cost of marketing their Web
site is "minimal." Any local business
owner thinking about finding more
about online marketing should attend
the Nov. 3 workshops, Yarbrough said.
"If you have ever considered an e-
commerce business, you should strong-
ly consider attending these workshops.
The information you will gain will be
invaluable," Al Yarbrough said.


shops," recalled Peggy Yarbrough. "We
needed to know what areas to focus on
to build and promote our business.
Because we were considering making a
national online approach for our video
albums, we both decided to dedicate a
full day to attend both the morning and
afternoon workshops."
The couple found the workshop facil-
itator's approach intriguing. "We knew
so little about the many details that, we
soon found out, are so very important to


a successful -site," Yarbrough said. After
the workshops were over, "We realized
that iI we were going to do this right,
we had to offer a quahlit product that
w as competition el priced, and that our,
site needed to be linked to other busi-
nesses whose services complimented
our own."
They also learned how to increase

Mangus thoroughly inspects homes for buyers


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Marc
Mangus recently moved from
Harrisburg, Pa. where he spent
10 years in housing code
enforcement for the city and
also inspected for Section 8
Housing Authority.
Raised in Buffalo, N.Y., he
chose Avon Park because of the
weather after making a trip to
Florida with his wife. In addi-
tion, he has 40 years experience
with property insurance under-
writing and as an inspector in
Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas
and Texas. In West Virginia
he'd been a field representative
for two insurance companies.
For $75, Mangus walks a

'Bottled anger' is


A bottled grudge is toxic if
not released by forgiving the
individual who in your heart
has caused you pain, or forgiv-
ing yourself for causing some-
one else's pain. The result can
be explosive.
According to Rick Warren,
author of the "Purpose- Driven
Life," "Many people are driven
by resentment and anger." They
hold on to hurts and never get
over them. Instead of releasing
their pain through forgiveness,
they rehearse it over and over in
their minds. Some resentment
driven people clam up and
internalize their anger, while
others blow up and explode. it
onto others. "Both responses
are unhealthy and unhelpful."
"Resentment always hurts
you more than it does the per-
son you resent. While your
offender has probably forgotten
the offense and gone on with
life, you continue to stew in
your pain, perpetuating the
past," Warren said.
The brutal shooting of 11
third- and fourth-grade students
at a private school in Lancaster
County,, Penn., is a result of
unforgiveness. The shooter,
Charley Roberts, was a man
tortured by decades filled with
secrets, self-hatred of his past
and "bottled grudge" against
God.
With guns and ammunitions,
he exacted revenge against little
girls and shattered the peaceful
village of a quiet God-fearing
Amish community. Police said
Roberts didn't know the girls,
neither was he a member of the
Amish clan. In malice, evil
became his friend as he wan-
dered through life ... a tortured
soul, as disclosed in his suicide
ramblings. Now a nation and a
community grieves.
There is also the 20-year
grudge carried by a young
woman who tried out for cheer
leading, but was selected to be a
flag bearer. The girl chosen
became a hated target. Both


bad


girls graduated; one became a
nurse, the other remained
charming and beautiful.
Twenty years later their paths
crossed. The cheerleader, still
stunning, went in for a cosmet-
ic procedure but never recov-
ered. Why? The attending nurse
who was still carrying her "bot-
tled grudge," grew unattrac-
tive, saw an opportunity when
this young lady came into her
care and during the doctors
absence, administered an over-
dose of medication, as a result
her former classmate died.
Today, that carrier of bottled
grudge is in prison awaiting her
fate. Perhaps blaming that
beautiful former classmate for
her explosive "bottled anger"
and resentment.
Anger, like an infected sore,
left untreated will fester and
decay.
How do you heal your anger
and resentment? Take it to God
in prayer, surrender yourself,
confess your sins and allow him
to guide you. "Forgive me,
Lord as I forgive others."
In spite of his suffering Jesus
asked his father to "forgive
them for they know not what
they do." Certainly, forgiveness
is the only antidote.

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS



'06 election bac1c to toss-up


. The latest polls show some-
thing very strange and quite MORE
encouraging is happening: The MO
Republican base seems to be
coming back home. This trend, Dick A
only vaguely and dimly emerg- Eileen
ing from a variety of polls, sug-
gests that a trend may be afoot
that would deny the Democrats
control of the House and the Senate.
With two weeks to go, anything can hap-
pen, but it is beginning to look possible that
the Democratic surge in the midterm elec-
tions may fall short of control in either
House.
Here's the evidence:
Pollsters Scott Rasmussen and John
Zogby both show Republican Bob Corker
gaining on Democratic Rep. Harold Ford Jr.
in Tennessee, a must-win Senate seat for
the Democrats. Zogby has Corker ahead by
seven, while Rasmussen still shows a Ford
edge of two points.
Zogby reports a "turnaround" in New
Jersey's Senate race with the GOP candi-
date Tom Kean taking the lead, a conclu-
sion shared by some other public polls.
Even though Sen. Jim Talent in
Missouri is. still under the magic 50 percent
threshold for an incumbent, Rasmussen has
him one point ahead and Zogby puts him
three up. But unless he crests 50 percent,


Passageway is

too shallow
Editor:
I've been wondering, when
did "dredge" become a four-
letter word? If you deal with
the water management district.
don't mention it or the conver-
sation will be pretty close to
over.
We live on Little Lake
Jackson and have, for years,
attempted to have. a problem
rectified, with absolutely no
results. Most of our boats
require only 12 inches of water
to float, but the passageway
between Lake Jackson and
Little Lake Jackson is shallow-
er than that in spots. I personal-
ly sucked in enough sand to
destroy one boat motor and
dread the thought of it.happen-.
ing again. ..
I understand that the .pas-
sageway used to be wider and
deeper. It appears that the prob-
lem is that sand from boat trav-,
el and water action has worked
its way into the passageway,
where it seems to sta., thereby
making it shallower as time'
progresses. It has gotten to the
point that I have to shut, off my
motor, get out and push the
boat through to Lake Jackson,
often still' getting stuck, having
to back up and readjust. What a
pain!

he'll probably still lose.
FROMn Even though he is a lost
RIS cause, both Rasmussen and
Zogby show Montana's
rris & Republican Sen. Conrad Burns
fcGann cutting the gap and moving up.
In Virginia, Republican
embattled incumbent Sen.
George Allen has now moved
over the 50 percent threshold in his internal
polls. (He'd been at 48 percent.)
Nationally, Zogby reports that the gener-
ic Democratic edge is down to four points,
having been as high as nine two weeks ago.
None of these data indicates that the
Republicans are out of trouble yet, but
Democrats must win one of these three
races: Ford in Tennessee, Menendez in
New Jersey or Webb in Virginia. If not,
they'll fall at least one seat short of control-
ling the Senate even if the\ succeed in
knocking off all five vulnerable GOP
incumbents in Montana, Ohio,
Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Missouri.
Why are Republican fortunes brighten-
ing?
The GOP base, alienated by the Foley
scandal and the generally dismal record of
this Congress, may have fast forwarded to
the prospect of a Democratic % ictorN and
recoiled. They may have pondered the
impact of a repeal of the Patriot Act, a ban


on NSA wiretapping and a requirement of
having an attorney present in terrorist ques-
tioning and decided not to punish the
country for the sins of the Republican lead-
ers.
Bush's success in dealing with North
Korea and his willingness to reassess tac-
tics in Iraq could also play a part in the
slight shift now under way.
Then, too, some in the Democratic Party
must be finally realizing what a disastrous
decision it was to put Howard Dean in as
party chairman. The Democratic National
Committee is broke and borrowing, while
the GOP can afford .to fund fully its key
races.
Right now, we would have to say that
control of Congress has gone from "lean
Democrat" to a "toss-up." And that's
progress for the Republicans.

told me that Little Lake Jackson
is really only a "pond," %which
gate me the impression that we
are not very high on the priority
list.

I was right to date nothing
has been done. No one seems to
have the answer, as to who. is
responsible for the maintenance
of the passageway. I have heard
how they measure from the
roadway to the top of the water
(?), while I have insisted the
only matter of importance is the"


depth from the top of the %%ater
to the bottom. It seems a simple
matter, but in actuality has
seemed to become an impossi-
bility. ,.
The entrance to our canals is
the same way. Since the col-
lapse of several sea wvails dur-
ing the hurricanes the entrance
is extremely Shallo%\ and nar-
row, with no apparent fix in
sight. With the lack of rain the
problem has increased dramiati-
cally.
What a joy to live on the,


%water. until we find that go\ern-
ment, which takes our tax
money. refuses to take care of
the things they get paid to mamn-
tain. Hopefully. someday we
can sail through without worn
of getting stuck. or hit b% a
snake while .\e are in the water
pushing our boats.

Tough to go to a restaurant
by boat when you are soaking
wet. How silly, sad but true.

APHS Junior ROTC cadets

tour Tyndall Air Force Base


AVON PARK,- Recently,
10th, llth, and 12th grade vet-
eran cadets of the Avon Park
High School Air Force Junior
ROTC program took a com-
mercial bus trip to the
Panhandle.
The cadets checked in to
their quarters at Tyndall Air
Force Base, which became their
base of operations. From
Tyndall, the cadets made day
trips to Eglin AFB, at Valpariso
and The National Museum of
Naval Aviation in Pensacola.
During the visit to Eglin AFB,
the students had a chance to
visit the Air Force Armament
Museum. The Air Force
Armament Museum is near
Eglin Air Force Base's main
gate and is the only facility in
the United States dedicated to
the display of Air Force arma-
ment. Visitors can view a vari-
ety of bombs and armament
along with historical Air Force
planes, from a B-17 World War
II bomber to an F-4 Phantom II
jet.
While at Pensacola the stu-
dents visited The National
Museum of Naval Aviation.
The National Museum of Naval
Aviation is one of the largest
and most beautiful air and
space museums in the world.
The museum is designed to
allow visitors to share in the
excitement of aviation rich
history. The cadets were able to
see more than 140 beautifully
restored aircraft representing
Navy, Marine Corps ahd Coast
Guard Aviation.
One of the most exciting
parts of the trip was the day


spent at Tyndall Air Force Base.
Tyndall AFB prides itself as
being the "Home of Air
Dominance." Tyndall's mission
is "Through trust and teamwork
train expeditionary airpower
experts who will guarantee air
dominance."
All of the pilots and mainte-
nance crews for the F-15 and
the F-22 receive their initial
training at Tyndall. Not only
did the cadets have a lot of fun,
but they were able to see the Air
Force in action, up close and
personal. Each of the cadets
were able to visit the cockpits
of the F-15 and F-22 and
receive a one-on-one briefing
from active duty Air Force
Personnel.

A friend of mine who

23,000 pounds and is being
hoisted to the ground.
Imagine the people who
originally placed the statue
on top of the Capitol being
able to see this modern-day
feat being performed
Imagine how many people
and the equipment that "as

car track


trying to


develop

following


I* -


By MATT MURPHY

.-\1O0 PARK
erybod kno ws about Sebrinng International
Race ayt. but most people in Highlands
County don't know that there s a brand ne.%.
radio-controlled car track.
Keith Lockett and Ja iler Ortiz would hke to change
that.
The track. which sits off County Road 1 7-A East
near the clay pits in A\on Park. as established
almost two years ago. Since the county gave them the
land. Lockett and Ortiz have spent countless hours
turning an empti field into what theN belilee can be
the premiere RC car track in the state.
'"We haxe one of the largest off-ro.ad tracks in the
state of Florida right now," (Ortiz said. "It's been done
with wheelbarrows and sho\ el, Lip to now..
"We just \ant to create some interest in the conm-
munaty. and at the same tlne pet some exposure. \We
\"ant to get the track kno\ wn throughout the communi-
It so that% we can keep growing '. tli A.it" Ortiz added.
They want to take the track to a national level and
beyond. They believe this is possible because RC rac-
ing has such a large and lo\al following around the
country and even the world.
"'This is not just a Highlands County facility. "


Javier Ortiz. of Sebring. turns a %trench on his A-scale
radio controlled car at the Highlands County RC Club
track.


Lockett said. "We can get to the point %where \e can
hold national races. international, things of that nature,
if \e can get the support.
In order to get to that point, however. the\ first
want to lei people in Highlands County know they
exist.
"'There's a lot of people that don't know we're
here." Lockett said. "In Highlands County. other than
watersports. yoti almost hake to get in the car and
drive some\ here else to do something the %\hole fam-
ily can enjoy We're just trying to create one more
option."
To Ortiz and Lockett. the track can be a mechanism
to gi\e families an acti\iti they can take part in
together It's also a way to present a safe en\ ironment
for kids.
"You can educate them about ho\w to set up these
cais and give them something to do on the weekends."
Ortiz said. "rather than being out there getting them-
selhes into trouble That's one of many things that we
want to do around here."
The\ stress the family atmosphere that they're tr\y-
ing to create.
"This is definitely a family-oriented sport." Ortiz
said. "This is not about a guy w\ho just \wants to play
with an RC car. Ninety-eight percent of our members
\will show up w th their kid. and their kid has an RC
car.
"It's a family e\ent for everybody. As long as \ou
can coordinate your hand between a remote and what
'.ou're doing with that RC car. there's no age limit."
They won't tolerate alcohol, bad or abusive lan-
guage or other active ities that could turn off families.
"We don't want a mother sitting up in the stands
who doesn't want to come back because she has to lis-
ten to some guy curse and complain." Lockett said.
"I'd rather kick that guy out. and keep her in here.
"We will ha\e rules posted, and they will be abided
b\. This is going to be fun. but it's going to be struc-
tured funi."
The goal for the facility is to have races e\ery
Saturday night. And although the atmosphere \ill be
competiti\ e. there will be more to it than w inning and
losing.
"This is not about 'my car is faster than \ours."
said Oitiz."It's not "I don't talk to him because his car
is faster than mine.' There is ,1 competitive side. but
it's not about that. Everybody helps, everybody comes
out and has a good time. Everybody chips in and we
do \hat we ha\e to do., and that's one of the things I
like the most."
"We want everybody at the track to get along,"
Lockett said. "Life's too hectic to have another
headache on the weekends."
Lockett and Ortiz said the track is at a crossroads
right now. The facility is finished to the point \here it
can be utilized every weekend. But it still lacks two
critical elements necessary to hold large-scale. state-
w ide and national e\ ents: lights and an electronic lap
counter.
The lighting situation is almost taken care of at the

track. Progress Energy has been contacted and paid.
and now Lockett and Ortiz are simply waining for
them to install the lights. Once this happens. they
beLiee the curiosity of community members %k ill
increase.
"Once we get the lights up, it'll be Lke moths to the
flame." Lockett said.
The lap counter issue is slightly more complicated. -
The counter is a $4.000 investment which theY're cur-
rently %working on to get. But once they're able to
obtain the lap counter, it \\ill change the face of the
facility and draw people from out of town and even
out of state.
Lockett and Ortiz hope to host national events once
a month along with the local events they hope to ha e
e\ery Saturday.
Eventually. they %ant the track to become as popu-
lar as Sebnng International Race\i ay. The men say
this teat isn't as far-fetched as it may sound, because
of the loyal following RC cars have.
"There's a \ery. lery loyal foll ingm in the RC
world," Lp.ckett said. "but around here in Highlands
County. it's not know\ n. You've got football players.
baseball players, and race car drivers \\ho run RC

such as NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield. to the
track so they can sign autographs and draw people to
the facility)
The idea for the track came about two years ago
when local RC drivers told Lockett they needed some-
where to race their cars besides in streets and parking
lots. The county donated the land for the current track
and ga\e Lockett $7,000 in startup money to facilitate
the mo\e.
Almost everything the men have at the track has
been donated by area businesses, and from the racers
themsel es.
The men hope to take advantage of a market that
the\ think would be cery receptive to RC drivers in
the area. The nearest track is in Barton, and it's small-

DIVERSIONS



Prestigious performances propel 'The Prestige'


E..n Christian Bale and
Hugh Jackman are getting used
to playing characters with dual
identities.
Jackman's doppelganger of
late has been the snarling and
cigar chewing Wolverine from
the "X-Men" series, as dark and-
grizzled as they come. Bale has
been busy resurrecting the
"Batman" franchise with direc-
tor Christopher Nolan, the
English-born magician who
also brought us "Memento."
That film was such a ground-
breaking, chronological conun- ,
drum that it was quickly intro-
duced to ivy-league film cours-
es, nationwide top-10 lists and
hailed as one of the best inde-
pendent films of the decade.
Although Nolan may never
be able to replicate a cinematic
narrative quite as .unique as
"Memento," he is building, a
reputation for himself as a pur-
veypr of dark .obsession. By"
coupling his morose and shad-
owy perspective %itih Jackman
and -Bale's multiple personali-
ties, he searches for a new kind.
of magic in his film "'The
Prestige."
"The Prestige" is the story of
a pair of feuding magicians in
turn-of-the-century London.
The young illusionists begin
their careers under the tutelage
of aging performer Cutter
(Michael Caine), an under-
appreciated and oft ignored
sage. Alfred Borden (Bale),
Rupert Angier (Jackman) and
Cutter are all part of the same
act until an accident during a
performance scatters the group
and drives a rift between them.
As they go their separate ways,
Borden is initially the more
ambitious of the two, consumed
by a ravenous desire to uncover
the secrets behind the magic
world's most coveted perform-

S a movie full of misdirection and

ting For the most part, however,
the film centers on the two

As the two men jockey for the
attention of London's theater
circuit, the women in their lives
are the ones who are indiscrim-
inately trodden upon. Scarlett
Johansson enters the story as
Angier's assistant and mistress
only to feel used and betrayed.

s piece Jackman is truly coming into

this performance fits nicely in
his cache. Bale has already
established himself as a cult-
icon and his intensity seems to
know no bounds. The support-
ing cast around them is capable,
but without the two leads deliv-
ering top-notch perfotmaiices,
it wouldn't matter at all.
The film as a whole is engag-
ing and active, with a wet filth
that seems to inhabit all
London-set films. There is one
particular revelation in the
movie that's as obvious as any
I've seen in a thriller, so much
so that I found myself looking
for a twist within the twist.
The bottom line is, like a
good magic trick, you don't
care if you're being fooled. The
joy is in the misdirection, and in
"The Prestige," there's plenty of
"abracadabra" to go around.

What was in Thessalonica?


When the Apostle Paul wrote
T Timothy, he shared some tragic
news. He wrote, "Do thy dili-
gence to come shortly unto me:
for Demas hath forsaken me,
having loved this present world,
and is departed unto
Thessalonica ... based from 11
Timothy 4: 9,10. What was in
Thessalonica that appealed to
Demas to the extent that he
would be persuaded to forsake
the apostle Paul? The world!
In Philemon 24, Paul refers
to Demas on one of his fellow
laborers. In Colossians 4:14 we
find Demas sending greetings
to the church at Colosse. These
two references and the one in 11
Timothy are the only verses
which mention Demas. It is a
brief biography which has a
happy beginning and middle,
but a sad ending.
At first he is in the trenches
with the apostle; next he is
greeting the Lord's people; but
in the end he forsakes all. Why?
There was something in


Thessalonica ... the
world, and Paul said
Demas had cone to
love the world. Now
we aren't talking
about your everyday
Christian. No, we're
talking about a man
who was laboring
with the apostle Paul.
We're talking about a
man whom the Lord
saw fit to mention in
the eternal Word.
We're talking about a
Christian man who
was there in the
beginning of
Christianity.


Demas lived in the days
when miracles were being per-
formed, the dead were being
raised, Christians were speak-
ing in foreign languages
(tongues), prophesying, etc. in
such a way that many could not
deny that Jesus was the Christ
and the apostles were endowed
with heavenly power. Demas


',as there ad' i eiV2
n AFi-.I A th &
things. Yet, there was
something in
Thessalonica which
caused him to lay
down his cross, deny
the confirming works
of the men of God
VERLON'S with whom he
labored, and forsake
SPIRITUAL Paul, the Lord and the
V[AMl Brethren.
VITAMIN What was in
Thessalonica? The
Verlon Carrell World! Since Demas
departed from Paul
because he loved the
world, and since he went to


Thessalonica, we assume the
world was in Thessalonica. If
so, then what is the world? 1
John 2:16 says the world is the
"lust of the flesh, and the lust of
the eyes, and the pride of life."
In Verse 15 the sacred text tells
us that if a man loves the world,
"the love of the Father is not in
him," James says that a man


whois a-fri6nd of the worldds
th6endmY76f God bal"ed frohi
Jam 4:4. How is this so? Look
at what the love of the world
(fleshly lust, lust of the eyes,
pride of life) did to Demas. He
forsook the Lord. He went from
being a faithful laborer in the
Lord's vineyard to being an
enemy of God.
What was in Thessalonica
that would cause a Christian to
fall? The same thing that exists
in our own communities the
world! How -true our. Lord's
words are: "No man can serve
two masters: for he will hate the
one, and love, tha other; or else,
he will hold to one, anddespise
the other...," based fromMatt
6:24.

One of the classes was about

sons to read the Bible.
Everyone is growing in some
way even though this is consid-
ered a very basis class in
Christian teaching. Along with
learning from the video .each
week and reading, the corre-
sponding chapter everyone has
grown especially in acceptance
and love. The class is the only
one with a mixture of both
youth and seniors and one in the
middle of both age groups. The


teacher asked one of the seniors
what she was thinking, since
she was particularly quiet that
evening. What she shared was
her concern of being in a class
with an equal number of teens.
Everyone was thinking the
same thing. The end result, is
that everyone is OK with each
age group and are learning
acceptance and love for each
other and grateful for this expe-
rience. Everyone took a giant
step in personal growth and will
be able to share more with the
congregation.

Grace Bible Church collects shoe boxes filled with gifts


SEBRING Area residents will
help bring joy to a hurting world this
Christmas by simply packing and col-
lecting shoe box gifts for hurting chil-
dren through Operation Christmas
Child.
Grace Bible Church, 4541
Thunderbird Road, will receive gift-
filled shoe boxes from the community
during Operation Christmas Child's
National Collection Week, Nov. 13-20.
The church will be open from 9:30
a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through
Saturday and from 12:30-4 p.m.
Sunday.
Operation Christmas Child is a min-


istry of Samaritan's Purse, the
International Christian Relief
Organization headed by Franklin
Graham. Children,, families, churches
and groups fill empty shoe boxes with
toys, school supplies, hygiene items,
photos and personal letters, and
Operation Christmas Child delivers
them around the' world to girls and
boys suffering from poverty, war, dis-
ease, disaster and terrorism.
Operation Christmas 'Child' has
handed out more than 46 million shoe
box gifts since 1993 and last year
reached more than 7.6 million children
in 95 countries.


This is Grace Bible Church's fifth
year as a collection center. The church
hopes to collect 2,000 shoe box gifts
,from Sebring residents and the sur-
rounding area this year. "This is our
fifth year as a collection site for shoe
box gifts, and we consider it a real joy
to be involved with Operation
Christmas Child again this year," said
David A. Jackson, who is coordinating
the local collection. "Each year we
look forward to seeing the shoe boxes
pile up as people drop them off, know-
ing that each simple gift sent \%ill bring
a smile to the face and hope to the life
of a child."


"Participants are learning about the
. power of a simple gift," Cindy .Beyer,
Operation Christmas Child regional
,director, said. "This project not only
blesses the child who receives a box,
but the person who prepares and fills
it. The Sebring community is making
an impact by showing hurting children
that they are loved and are not forgot-
ten through this fun and tangible proj-
ect."
Operation Christmas Child tran-
scends barriers of language, culture,
geography, and politics. Abby
Peterson, raised in an orphanage in


Russia, will never forget her shoe box
- it contained the first doll she had
ever received. "A shoe box really can
make a difference I remember how
great it made me feel to know someone
I didn't even know cared about me."
Operation Christmas Child is a proj-
ect of Samaritan's Purse. For more
information about Grace Bible
Church's participation in Operation
Christmas Child, call (800) 410-5892.

Fall festival and dinner focuses on family


By SUSAN FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent'
SEBRING Kid's City Ministries
is offering a no-strings-attached free.
dinner, as well as fun, games, and
prizes for children from 5-8 a.m
Sunday as part of an outreach program
for families who do not have the sup-
port of an extended family.
Chris Brown is the coordinator for
Kid's City Ministries, which is a com-
bination of Kid's City Day Care and
the Grace Brethren Church Children's
Ministry. Brown said there are many
young families in Highlands County
who have a difficult time because they


don't have the support of an extended
family.
"When parents are alone and hurting
from illness, problems with their mar-
riage or financial difficulties, children
de\ elop problems and those problems
don't go away until you begin helping
the parents," Brown said.
The ministry has helped numerous
families since they have opened Kid's
City Day Care and Brown said it is the
attitude 'of the church that has really
helped make the ministry successful.
"We believe that Christianity is a
lifestyle that keeps us going the extra
mile to help anyone in need. 'Just


preaching to people isn't going to help,
the only way we can help people to
feel God's love is to be willing to show
that love through our deeds and
actions," Brown said.
Sometimes the problems are as sim-
ple as holding a young mother's.hand
during labor but .other times the prob-
lems are more complex.
Kid's City Ministries has .helped
young families find affordable housing
or directed .them to a free marriage
counselor.
"Whatever help a-family needs, giv-
ing them that help begins with winning
their trust and there are so manm \ounng


families who just don't have anyone
they trust enough to even talk about
their problems," Brown said.
Brown said winning their trust is all
about building a relationship and that
is why they are sponsoring the
Children's Fall Festival. The festival
and free dinner are open to the public
and offers nothing more .than an
evening of fun for parents and their
children.
The event offers some new twists on
typical carnival games. Instead of a
cake walk, there will be a caramel
apple walk and children will not have
to dunk for apples: instead the apples
will hang from a string. Children who


are able to ride scooters can join the
"Scooter Relay Race." At 6 p.m. there
will be a "Super Heroes of the Bible"
costume contest. Young ladies may
dress up as Mary, Queen Esther or the
Prophetess Deborah. Boys may prefer
to be King David, Moses or one of the
disciples. Boys and girls costumes will
be judged according to creativity.
The festival also features everything
from a bean-bag toss to a giant slide
and everything is free for anyone to
enjoy.
The evening festival will be at
Sebring Grace Brethren Church, 3626
Thunderbird Road. For more informa-
tion call 385-3111.


Physical therapists can be good people to know


By DR. JEFF I. LADINSKY
S ilt t.,i,. ',.ws-Sun
Highlands Regional Medical
Center's Department of Rehabilitation
Services and the American Physical
Therapy Association observe October
as Physical Therapy Month.
This year's theme is "Moving You`
to Better Health." Although the nearly
120,000 physical therapists in the
United States are celebrating this
month with great enthusiasm, it is sur-
prising how the general public does not
understand the significant role physi-
cal therapists play in the health care
system, nor do may realize the unique
services that physical therapists pro-,
vide. The title, "physical therapist", is
familiar to most, and many have bene-
fited from the clinical intervention that
a physical therapist has provided.
However, the true nature and purpose
of this profession remains an enigma.
A physical therapist is* one of the
most commonly consulted health pro-
fessionals who are educated in under-
standing the interactions, of all body
parts. We take a "hands-on" approach
to the evaluation, examination and
treatment of neurological, muscu-


loskeletal, cardiovascular, pulmonary
and congenital disorders that may pro-
duce movement impairment, disability
and other functional limitations.
Simply put, a physical therapist is an
expert in normal and abnormal human
movement science. We may provide
preventative, acute or rehabilitative
care that may impede or prevent func-
tional decline and the need for costlier
care. A physical therapist is an educa-
tor; not only to. patients, but also to
other health care providers, insurers,
government agencies and to the gener-
al public about the numerous services
therapy may ha e to offer. These serv-
ices are provided to people of all ages
who have or the potential to have
diinunished tunctional conditions.
Physical therapists are professional-
ly educated through an accredited col-
lege or university program. Today, all
of these programs offer a master's
degree with a growing number of pro-
grams offering residency programs and
doctorate of physical therapy degree.
All physical therapists are required to
complete the requirements for physical
therapy practice according to state and


federal regulations and pass the state
board exam. In addition,: a physical
therapist that formally demonstrates
advanced clinical competencies, and'
pass certification examination can be
designated as a specialist. Specialty
areas recognized by the American
Physical Therapy Association include
cardiopulmonary, electrotherapy, geri-
atrics, neurology, orthopedics, pedi-
atrics and sports medicine.
Physical therapy includes not only
those services provided by physical
therapists, but also those services ren-
dered under their direction and super-
vision. In response to. the growth and
expectation of rehabilittive health
care services, the physical therapist
assistant % as dex eloped as a technical
health care worker who functions
under the direction and supervision of
the physical therapist in the application
of specific physical therapy proce-
dures. Preparation of the PTA includes
a minimum of two years of college
work leading to an associates degree in
physical therapy. All PTAs are also
required to pass a state board exam..
After assessing patients with impair-


ments, disabilities or functional limita-
tions. the physical therapist designs.
implements and modifies a treatment
plan of care to include therapeutic
interventions designed to correct the
identified deficits. Interventions may
include therapeutic exercise, manual
therapy techniques (including joint
mobilization, myofascial release and
massage), electrotherapeutic and
mechanical modalities, prescription
and application of assistive, adaptive,
supportive and protective equipment,
airway clearance techniques, and
burn/wound care.
Today's physical therapists practice
-in many settings. Traditionally, we
have practiced in hospitals, rehabilita-
tion centers, private clinics and nursing
homes. However, the modern practice
of physical therapy has extended to
private homes, schools, fitness centers,
athletic training centers,
education/research centers and the
work/industrial setting.
Until recently, physical therapists
received patients based on referrals
from .other practitioners. Consumers
today can access a physical therapist


directly as it has been shown that when
including a movement specialists on
the primary care team there is a reduc-
tion in patient healing time, costs and
an improvement in patient care effi-
ciency.
As essential participants in the
health care delivery system, physical
therapists have assumed a leadership
role in the provision of proactive and
rehabilitative services. We seek to min-
imize risk of injury, reduce .functional
deficits and improve the quality of life
through the delivery of skilled profes-
sional services.
As it is your right to choose your
physician, it is also your right to
choose a physical therapist. If you feel
that you. or a loved one may benefit
from the professional therapy services
provided by the Highlands Regional
Rehabilitation Center, consult with
your physician or call our office at
471-6336 to. speak with a physical
therapist.

Dr. Jeff I.L Ladinsky is the director of
rehabilitation .services at Highlands
Regional Medical Center, Sebring.

Right now, the track has 47

For those %%ho ,want to come

that once they get people to

Besides the main race

in the resource fair.


For those who don't know
anything about RC racing but
want to learn, there are plenty
of club members with the tech-
nical knowledge to help.
Lockett and Ortiz have more
than 30 years of experience
between them, and they say the
rest of the club members are
eager to help as well.
The RC cars run at the track
are not the kind you'd buy in
Wal-Mart. The cars raced at
the track run on gas-powered
engines and some can do
upwards of 100 mph. At 1/10th
the size of a regular car, that's
the equivalent of a car going
1,000 mph.
While some racers spend
lots of money on their cars (it's
not uncommon to see one-pis-
ton engines on sale for
$1,000), the activity is afford-
able for those without that kind
of bankroll.
"The average kid can get an
RC car to the level of a pro
without breaking the bank,"
Ortiz said, "because you can

A brand-new car starts at
$300, and there are many addi-
tional parts and adjustments,
that can be made to the base
car at different times. Lots of
used RC cars and parts can be
bought on eBay, as well. Used
cars on the site can range any-
where from $50 to more than
$3,000, not counting the
remote control.
"It's not how fast you want
to go," Ortiz said. "It's how
fast you can afford to go."
Once the facility gets lights
and a lap counter, Lockett and
Ortiz believe they will be in a
position to take the track to the
next level that they're dream-
ing of in the future. They hope
that once weekly Saturday,
races start, the event will.
spread by word-of-mouth and
the rest will fall into place.
"We have the facility," Ortiz

rest of the county know where

and what we're about."

CARMICHAEL
for Circuit Court Judge


JUDGES NEED COURTROOM EXPERIENCE:


David Carmichael has earned the highest possible rating a courtroom
attorney can achieve. He is a Board Certified Trial Specialist, with in
excess of 100 civil and criminal trials including dozens of Capital/Death
Penalty cases. As a former Special Prosecution Division Chief and as a
Partner in his Law Firm, David has been in the courtroom every single
day for over a decade.

While some areas of legal practice allow lawyers to go years without
completing a jury trial, David regularly successfully completes jury trials
often in excess of twenty in a calendar year.

A judge must have the ability to handle a courtroom, complete trials
and handle heavy dockets and caseloads. David has the experience to
immediately assume these important responsibilities.


MAI



SWAP T,.c"''4


BACKGROUND:


I began my legal career as a County Court Prosecutor in Highlands
County. Later as a Special Prosecution Chief of the Sex Crimes Unit
with the State Attorneys Office, I lectured with the Florida Prosecuting
Attorneys Association (FPAA), teaching prosecutors in over 15 areas
of practice. I was certified by FDLE as an instructor for teaching Police
Standards, and taught at the Polk Community College Criminal Justice
Academy from 1994-2004. While the Chief of the Sex Crimes Unit, I was
a charter member of the FPAA Sex Crimes Network, a statewide organ-
ization concerned with implementing new legislation such as the Kayla
McKean Bill and the Jimmy Ryce Act. I successfully tried the first three
Ryce cases in Highlands and Polk Counties. In 2001, I was Board
Certified by the Florida Bar as a Criminal Trial Specialist, and have also
achieved a-certification to sit First Chair in Capital (Death Penalty) liti-
gation.

Currently, I have a private law practice in Bartow, The Franklin and
Carmichael Law Firm.

COMMUNITY SERVICE:


I am an active leader in the Bar Association and Polk community. I am a
past president of the Lakeland Bar Association, and am currently
Chairman of the Tenth Circuit Grievance Committee. I am a member
of The American Bar Association, The Florida Bar Association, The
Lakeland Bar, The Polk County Trial Lawyers Association, The Florida
Prosecuting Attorneys Association, and the Willson Inn of Court.

I have been a member of Hope Presbyterian Church since 1980,
where I have been in the choir, and served as a Deacon. I have partici-
pated in the American Cancer Society, Relay For Life Winter Haven
as an Event Committee member and team member, and been the
Announcer and Master of Ceremonies for Relay For Life events. I have
also worked at Concert 90, WUSF and WSFP-FM as a classical music
announcer. I am an Adjunct Professor of law at Webber International
University.

My wife and I have been married for 10 years and reside in Winter
Haven with our two children, Davis age 2 years, and Daxon at 2 months.

Qualifications: I am the only Board Certified candidate in the race, with
well in excess of 100 jury and bench trials. I have handled the most dif-
ficult and complex litigation, with many cases lasting in excess of six
weeks of trial. I have handled appeals, post-conviction relief cases, cap-
ital sexual battery cases and death penalty cases, the last as a death
penalty certified First Chair Attorney. I have tried civil cases, probate
matters, mental health cases, dependency cases and family cases.
Because of my extensive courtroom experience I have developed the
skills and expertise to immediately assume responsibilities of a circuit
court judge.

Goals: I want to contribute what I can to our community. I would consid-
er it an honor to serve the Tenth Judicial Circuit as Polk County has been
home to my family and I over the last 27 years. I believe that I have a
duty to serve my community, whether as a Bar President, a Church
Deacon, a Relay for Life Committee member, as a prosecutor, or as a
prospective judge. If elected, I hope to maintain the high standard of pro-
fessionalism set by the current bench and their predecessors.

implications," said Sebring
coach Jared Hamlin, who has
played and coached in the rival-
ry game and said the two are
very different experiences.
"You've got to keep your mind
straight when you're coaching
in it. You can't let your emo-
tions get ahead of you. But
you've got to do that as a play-
er, too."
Avon Park coach Earnest
Perkins is a newcomer to the
rivalry, but he's been getting a
crash course this week.
"It's a hometown thing and
I've been experiencing it since_
Sunday at church," he said. "It's
different, I'll tell you that. I've
been in this business a long
time, but I've never been in a
small town. It's different than
being in the big city. It's every-
where I go. It's great, though.
I'm enjoying it.
"I imagine Friday night, it's
going to be a packed house. The
kids are looking forward to it.
Six o'clock in the morning, we
were lifting (weights) and one
of the guys hollered in the
weight room, 'Here we go,
baby! It's time to win!' I
haven't heard that all year. The
kids are hyped up."
Avon Park comes into Friday
night's game at Joe Franza
Stadium as the favorite with a
6-3 record compared to,
Sebring's 4-4 mark. The old
saying about throwing out the
record books when rivals meet
could have been written about
the Sebring-Avon Park game,
however.
Through 84 meetings, the
team \w ith the worse record has.
won 16 times and earned one
tie. Two of the more shocking
upsets have come in the past 10
years. In 1997, Avon Park was
8-1 and ranked third in the state,
while Sebring came into the
game with a 4-5 record. The
Streaks won 15-12.
The next year, the Streaks
limped into the game with a
winless record and seemingly
little hope of leaving in any bet-
ter shape, even though the
Devils only had three wins of
their own. A few hours after
kickoff, however, the Streaks

Sebring leads series 43-40-1


the firsi thing out of their mouth
will likely be, "We beat Avon
Park." ,
The same can be said of
many teams down through the
years. A disappointing season


can be salvaged by one win at
the end.
A loss can also turn a good
season sour.
In 1958. the Blue Streaks
were having a great season, sit-

ting at 8-1 and on a seven-game
winning streak when the
Devils, who were 6-2-1,
grabbed a 14-13 victory that
took a lot of the luster off of
Sebring's first Ridge
Conference title in 21 years.
The very next x ear. the tables
were turned. Avon Park rode
into Sebring with a 9-0 record
to take on the 7-2 Blue Streaks'
and got whipped 20-7, losing a
chance to win the Ridge
Conference title outright. The
next week, the De\ ils got blow n
out 34-13 by Palmetto in the
Sertoma Bowl game, and an\ -
one who thinks what happened
the week before had nothing to
do with that bowl loss needs to,
think again.
The rivalry has seen it all.
There have been a fair share
blowouts like Avon Park's
67-0 win in 1927 and Sebring's
34-0 thrashing of the Deikls in
.1995 but mostl. it's been a
close contest.
There have been 31 games
decided b\ eight points or less
and six one-point games.- the
last one a 10-9 Sebring -\in in
2003. .
The a' erage margin of victo-
ry in the S3 games so finr stands
at just o' er three points. ith
Avon Park holding a 15.85-
point average to Sebring's
12.67.
The last two \ears ha'e been
two of the more exciting 2ames
in the series. In 2004. the
Streaks built a 28-0 lead. then
had to hold on for dear life as
the Devils roared back before
falling 35-29. Last Near.
Sebnng went into the fourth
quarter \with an 11-point lead.
only to have Avon Park rally for
a 30-20 1) in.
Mix that kind of intensity\
with the added implications of
the playoff picture, and the 80th
year of the Avonr Park-Sebnn2
rivalry is shaping up to be one
of the best yet.
"That's. what makes this
game special and makes foot-
ball special, playing n\als like
this," Hamlin said \when asked
if he would like to ha\e the
game earlier in the year to take
some of the pressure off. "To
me, being a competitor. I
\wouldn't want it anN other \way,
and I don't think our kids
would, either."
