Ruling banned

Linn from

debate

An appeals court reversed
the ruling allowing Reform
Party candidate Max Linn
into Tuesday night's debate,
which is why he was not a
participant.
The 4th District Court of
Appeals liftedt1he fstaN
allowing Linnto take part in
the debate lae Tuesda)
afternoon, meaning that
organizers could keep him
out. A Broward County
judge had ruled Monday that
he had to be allowed in the
debate. Event organizers had
appealed the ruling.,
According to the Palm
Beach Post, debate organiz-
ers had set up a third podium
for Linn on the afternoon of
the debate and Linn had
walked around the stage that
afternoon. But at around 5
p.m. the set-up crew was
notified that the third podi-
um would not be necessary.
It is .unclear whether Linn
will be allowed into the sec-
ond gubernatorial debate,
which will be held Monday.

Schools celebrate Red Ribbon Week


By TREY CHRISTY
News-Sun
Last week, Highlands
County schools celebrated Red
Ribbon: Week by participating
in various activities, from the
smallest gesture of display~ ing
red ribbons to going all out in
door, decorating contests with
each school naming individual
class winners
The week started in 1986
after the. brutal murder ofi
Enri2ue Camndrelna, a drug
enforcement agent assigned to a
case in Nle'ico. Caniarena was
kidnapped. brutally tortured
and killed in the line of duty
while trying to uncover the'
kingpins of an illegal drug
smuggling business.
Enraged by the death of
Camarena, the citizens. of his
hometown in California began
wearing red. ribbons in his
honor. Years later this has
become an annual focus on the
evils of drugs all over the
United States, with Congress
officially proclaiming the last
week of October Red, Ribbon
Week in 1988.
Local students showed their,
commiitmeaLto a healthy, drug-
free lifestyle and were part
of the celebration by dressing
up every day to a different

Lake Country puts vocabulary twist on Halloween OBITUARI
LAKE PLACID Students .i Russell Ketchum
at Lake Country Elementary b" T- ussell K etchum
celebrated Halloween Friday 62, of Sebring, die
with a vocabulary twist. .- Thursday, Oct. 19


In an effort to actively
engage the children in the learn-
ing process, the decision was
made to integrate the school's
focus on vocabulary, with
Halloween. Thus creating the
Halloween Vocabulary
Challenge. The challenge was
an opportunity for all children,
kindergarten through fifth
grade, to get caught up in the
school's focus on building and
expanding each child's vocabu-
lary.
The Vocabulary Challenge
started as a monthlong word
study in which students in
grades kindergarten through
fifth grade began looking close-
ly at adjectives, and other syn-
onyms for common words. As
Halloween became near, the
student's goal was to then
choose a vocabulary word that
would describe their costume or
the character trait that they por-
trayed. Since Halloween cos-
tumes were optional, those stu-
dents not planning on dressing
up were encouraged to choose
words that could be mimed or

Elementary, Lake Placid.


preformed.
The culminating activity was
a Halloween Vocabulary Parade
where the children took turns
sharing their words with each


other as each grade level parad-
ed around the physical educa-
tion area.
The students,all had a good
time with 100 percent of the
students present participating. It

is certain that this Halloween
Challenge will not be forgotten,
and will become a yearly event
in an effort to use every oppor-
tunity to expand and enrich our
student's vocabulary.

Remember

. When The Word

"Service" Meant

Something?
We remember when people took the time to
serve others. Our family has been helping
families here for many years. A our town
has grown, we have grown too, with more
specialized services, such as out-of-town
arrangements, pre-arrangements, cremations
and a grief recovery program. Even though
we have grown, our dedication to service is
still the same as it was years ago. And, we
think that's really something.

Turnpike projects won't happen anytime soon


By MATT MURPHY
News-Sun
SEBRING Two major
Florida's Turnpike projects that
would have an impact on
Highlands County won't be
happening anytime soon,


because the projected traffic
flows would not be at a high
enough level to justify the cost
of the projects.-
Pamela Richmond of
Florida's Turnpike Enterprise,
who made a presentation to the


Highlands County Long Range
Transportation Committee on
Wednesday, said neither the
east-to-west Heartland Coast to
Coast Corridor nor the
Heartland North-South project
are economically feasible now


In town training


without a public/private part-
nership.
The projected route of the
North/South project would start
from the Western Beltway at
Interstate 4, and run south
between Highways 17 and 27,
through the western edge of
Highlands County to State
Road 82 in Lee County.
The proposed Coast to Coast
Corridor would run west-to-
east, from Interstate 75 in
Hillsborough or Manatee coun-
ties, through northern Avon
Park, curving south to run by
the Sebring Airport, then east to
Interstate 95 in St. Lucie
County.
Richmond said an average of
50,000 vehicles would have to
travel the length of the road
every day to produce enough
revenue to justify Florida's
Turnpike Enterprise completely
funding the projects.


The Turnpike Enterprise
administers a test to determine
whether a new project is eco-
nomically feasible. In order for
a project to go through, its net
toll revenues must pay for 50
percent of the cost by the 12th
year of operation, and the pro-
ject's debt service payment
-must be fully paic off by the
22nd year.
This test is important to the
Turnpike Enterprise because it
helps them keep their AA bond
rating, which is the best possi-
ble rating. The test is how they
got the AA rating, Richmond
said, and it's how they intend to
keep-it.
The Coast to Coast project
would cost an estimated $2.5
billion to construct, and the
North/South highway would
cost around $5 billion.
Richmond said the tolling
rate would be $0.10 a mile,

which .would mean around a
$15 trip for people traveling the
entire length of the North/South
roadway.
Richmond said the Coast to
Coast highway had "a lot of
momentum," and said both
projects "have captured the
attention of the Florida
Transportation Committee."
The Turnpike Enterprise uses
four criteria to determine the
necessity of a road. The pro-
posed project has to meet a
transportation need, has to be
environmentally sound, has to
be feasible economically, and
has to have local support.
Even if the funding was com-
pletely in place to start the proj-
ect, Richmond said it would
take 25 years for the project to
be completed. She said it would
take 10 years to procure the
right-of-ways and determine the
exact route of the roads, and 15
years to build the entire project,
which could also theoretically
be done in phases.

KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
In front of Avon Park City Hall on Main Street, Air Force Staff Sgts. Clifford Jackson and John
Rusch communicate Thursday with Army forward observers further down the road and pilots in
the sky. To make Atlantic Strike IV more realistic and to challenge its participants, the Air Force
received permission from the community to hold some of its training off of the Avon Park Air
Force Range. On Wednesday, the joint terminal attack controllers who were in sport utility
vehicles instead of military Humvees stopped in front of Hector and Mary Alvarez's home on
State Road 17, just south of the intersection with Arbuckle Creek Road, for about 20 minutes.
Air Force officials said that moving into the community for target identification (weapons were
not deployed) enhances training by giving ground troops and pilots new features to interpret.
The joint exercise that began Sunday concluded Friday.

DEATHS
Continued from 1A
Whether casings or a weapon
were collected, LaBelle would
not say. Nor could he comment
to how many times the man was
shot.
The suspect or suspects
remain at large and an arrest
wasn't expected to happen
Saturday.
"We're continuing to follow
leads as they come in," he said,
noting that his detectives have
been on the case since they
were notified.
A red truck used to transport
the victim to the gas station was
towed from the scene for crime
scene analysis.
The shooting is similar to a
shooting Wednesday, Oct. 18
when a man visiting from out-
of-town was shot near the
entrance of Highway Park. That
man was a passenger in a truck.
The driver fled the scene and
sought help at the Royal Palms


Bowling Center.
In the shooting death
Tuesday of Robert Charles
Bemis, 19, of Lake Placid,
deputies have arrested his 18-
year-old roommate.
Theodore Ryan Hunt, of
Lake Placid' was arrested
Thursday and is being held on
$1,250,000 bond for alleged
manslaughter, aggravated
assault with a firearm
(described as a "high-power
rifle") and tampering with a
witness.
The suspect and the victim
both resided at 310 Golf Villa
Court in Lake Placid, where
officers arrived Tuesday to find
Bemis dead with a rifle next to
him.
Initial reports from the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office indicated it may have
been a suicide.
Detectives continue to seek
information regarding both
shootings. Anonymous tips can
be given by calling (800) 226
TIPS (8477).


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
The Highlands County Sheriff's Office continues its investigation
into the shooting death of Robert Charles Bemis, 19, on Tuesday in
Lake Placid. Theodore Ryan Hunt, 18, has been charged with
manslaughter, aggravated assault with a firearm and tampering with
a witness. Hunt was booked late Friday into the Highlands County.
Jail on a $1,250,000 bond.

and down the river," he said.
"More will discover the place
on.a.-boat-than in a car." -
In order to make the terms of
any prospective agreement
clear, Davis recommended the
drafting of a Memorandum of
Understanding between the
water district and the county.
The MOU would lay out how
the county intends to use the
propertN, and sei up certain
things the county could do to
fix. up the property without
SFWMD objecting.
Susanne Lamb, a descendant
of the Pearce family, brought up
the idea of a "Friends of the
Pearce Homestead" non-profit
organization. If formed, the
group could collect donations
from individuals wanting to
help in the re italization of the
property. Stokes agreed with
the idea, saying almost every
project that %went before the
countN commission had a simi-
lar organization attached to it.
Revitalization work is ,con-
tinuing on the property. Lamb
said the porch had been redone
to fix gaps. a roof had been put
over a garage, and parts of the
house had been painted.
Topel urged the commission
to take a long-term vision 'on
the project. She thought the
count) would look more close-
ly ,t the, Homestead if a long-
term plan was in place.


"This could be a long-term
successful project," she said, "if
we don't set ourselves up to
fail. We have to ask 'what can
* we realistically do?'"
Cornelius agreed, saying the
first year of county ownership
would be tied lip in raising
money anyway. But having the
proposed $500.000 grant in
place wouldd buy them time to
procure more funding for long-

'Penny Boy' collecting


for Thanksgiving


By CINDY MARSHALL
Night/Weekend Editor
SEBRING Robert "Penny
Boy" Ruiz is off to a good start
in collecting food and .funds for
his annual Thanksgiving bas-
kets for the needy in Highlands
County.
Robert, 17, has personally
saved more than $500. "He has
been :taking 10 percent of his
paycheck from Publix to save
.for the holidays," his mother
Evelyn Ruiz said. Robert has
been working at Sebring Publix
for more than six months, bag-
ging groceries and carrying
them out for customers.
This is his sixth year to put
together food baskets for needy
. families, around Thanksgiving.
He started this worthwhile proj-
ect after Sept. 11, 2001. Robert
is more famous for his charity
work around Christmas time
where he collects money and
toys for needy children. He has
been doing that goodwill ges-
ture ever since he was 5 years
old then collecting pennies.


term use of the property.
The next step for the Historic
Preservation Commission is its
regular meeting at 2:30 p.m.
Thursday, Nov. 9. There mem-
bers will continue to discuss
putting together a. klng-term
plan and a basic budget. The
Hist6ridcPreser\atiorf Commis-
sion plans to present its propos-
al to the count\ commission at a
workshop in December. :

Robert plans on once again
doing the toy drive, but needs to
focus on Thanksgiving first.
He has 69 families on his
Thanksgiving list who need
meals this year and that number
keeps climbing. Last year, he
fed 99 families.
"It's good the numbers are
down," Robert said.
He estimates a total otf 50
turkeys can be purchased \ nth
his budget so far. He needs
enough money to buy 19 more
turkeys, which he is able to get
at $10 apiece. Robert also needs
canned goods and all the other
fixings to go with the meals
The deadline to make dona-
tions for Thanksgiving is
Saturday, Nov. 18. The Ruiz
family and several volunteers
will begin their deliveries after
that date so the families \\ill
have the food in time to prepare
for the holiday.
Anyone wishing to donate
money or non-perishable food
items, can bring them to the
News-Sun, 2227 U.S. 27 South.

time and location. An. one
wishing to donate fresh fruits or
vegetables or items that require
refrigeration, should call the
Ruiz family directly for pick
up. Checks can be made
payable to Robert Ruiz for anN -

the conservation of natural

eral agency has other, more

Studying water to


maintain quality
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
SEBRING Florida established 62 soil and water conservation dis-
tricts back in the dark days of the Great Depression in 1937.
A Democratic administration in the White House. believing in go\ -
ernnment as an agent of renovation and change., uided a national effort
to address long standing regional problems of erosion and desertifica-
ion.
As time has passed, that early effort has become more complex and
encompassing. State and local governments ha'e joined in the work of
conserving natural resources as well. Today soil and water conservation
districts are responsible for conservation programs and public health.
safety and \welfare issues.
Each district is governed by an elected board of fi\ e supervisors. w ho
are elected in a non-partisan election and ser\e four-\ear terms.
Here in Highlands County one of the most important things the dis-
trict does is keep an eye on the health oL the county's lakes. At last count
there were 113 of them.
Ten years ago the count\ had only accounted for 65 lakes.
That isn't as glanng a difference as it appears.
For example., afterr resources are measured by acreage. Ten years ago
Highlands Count\ had identified a total of 48.000 acres under w ater.
Today 418.100 acres of \water resources hae been mapped.
That is because Lake Istopokga the largest lake in Highlands
County. and the fifth largest in the state covers 27.600 acres. The bal-
ance is everything else. That simply means the additional 48 lakes are
'ery, %ery small.
In fact. it \%as only with aerial photography. and an extra person to
analyze the photographs, that a more complete surve\ could be done and
those small lakes accounted.
Just because the lakes are small, however. doesn't mean the. are not
important.
They are.
Clell Ford. lake manager for the count,. explained that all the lakes in
the area are connected underground The ,watershed for Highlands
Count> drains primarily into Lake Istopokga. and from there into Lake
Okeechobee. The water passes through the county "s lakes as it goes
That means that the health of one lake ma, affect the health of anoth-
er, sometimes directly. The point is, long term health for the count\ oxer-
all depends on every lake.
Fertilizers and storm runoff are two primarily threats. So is develop-
ment.
For example, a small lake with one house built next to it ma\ contin-
ue to thrive. But build four or five houses on a small lake. especially a
self-contaned one. and the run off could upset the delicate balance.
Well-meaning residents, getting rid of essential plant life like maiden
-cane or pickerel %\ eed. to create a sandy beach, can %wreck ha\oc on fish
habitats, and bird nesting areas too. not to mention upsetting the chenmi-
cal balance of the water.
That is why education is a big part of the \work the district does.
The \work requires at least a bachelor'of science degree.

FRACTIONS
Continued from 9A
something as simple as dipping a tube into
a lake, turned out to be very complicated.
Water resources, whether fresh or
saline, belong to the people. They are con-
sidered public resources. The same does
not hold true for the land surrounding any
body of water, which is often held in pri-
vate hands.
S "People think that because we are the
government, we can go wherever we want.
But we can't," McCarta said.
"We have to ask permission. But who is
going to say no when what we're doing is
testing the quality of the water in their
lake?"
The point is, we had to cross private
land to get to this lake and the fewer visi-
tors the better.
In the back of her pickup she ihd a col-
- lapsible dingy.
This was a remarkable vessel that could
be folded into a bundle small enough to fit
in the trunk of a car.
Because she was using the truck,
McCarta hadn't bothered to collapse the
boat, but was carm ing it set up.
She shamed me by pulling it, virtually
single handed, over to a small break in
other ise thick bushes.
Here the coin2 was more difficult
because the shore w as thick with bushes
and saplings and many protruding ioois.


There also was a sharp drop of about two
feet to the water's surface.
Working together, by now I had put
down my camera and pad and pen, we
managed to get the boat into the lake with-
out killing either one of us.
Then came the harder job of getting into
the boat.
Have I mentioned I'm not as limber as I
once was?
And that in a fit of whimsy that morn-
ing I had dressed in khaki, including
shorts, knee socks and a pith helmet?
So I had to ditch the shoes and socks
and edged down the steep bank, barefoot,
into the water. It was refreshing, not too
cold, and about knee deep.
But that meant the boat's keel was also
roughly even with my knees, and the
boat's sides rose up close to waist high.
That meant I had to swing my leg up into
the boat, grab a hold of whatever I could
and, using upper bodN strength, pull
myself up and in onl3 anything I could
grab a hold of in this fragile, collapsible
boat, gave way when I grabbed it.
Hate \ou eer noticed ho\\ weak laugh-
ing can make )ou?
It took -se eral tries to get aboard, but I
finally succeeded without getting soaking
wet or losing the camera.
Moving around was difficult.
The boat is made of flat panels of sheets
of heavy-duty plastic. It was stiff, but flex-
ible rtuff. It felt like walking on a water
bed. The bottom nmoed under m\ feet and


too much like Jell-O to call a deck.
McCarta used a small electric motor to
move around, powered by an ordinary car
battery.
Under yet another postcard perfect sky.
Le silently slid through the %water. pausing
to drop a thermometer to different depths.
looking for the point, called the thermo-
cline, at which the water temperature
dropped off precipitously, roughly 1
degree centigrade for ever meter.
After taking samples. recording %water
depths and conditions and careful\ label-
ing everything. McCarta was read_ to
return to the office.
Turns out. field work is onl] a small
fraction of the vw ork to be done Most of
McCarta's time is spent at a computer.
And while the work is no doubt reward-
ing, after all she is identify ing and drawing
portraits of all of Highlands Countr's
lakes, it turns out to be work crowded with
numbers and fractions and words like iso-
cline. littoral zones, and ortho-phosphate.
I was relieved to cet back to the world
of English. but the boat ride was nice. and
the companN interesting

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


Keeping parking frustrations between the lines


Let me start this column by
Confessing that I barely passed
parallel parking when I took my
driver's test so many years ago.
Once I safely had that license in
my hand, I vowed to avoid hav-
ing to parallel park at any cost.
When my oldest got his
license last year, I discovered
that parallel parking is no
longer required on Florida's
drive ing test. While I was happy
for him, a part of me reflected
on the unfairness of it all. Our
kids don't realize how good
they have it. But I digress.
My regular parking skills are
all right. For the most part I
manage to get my vehicle
between the painted lines and
try not to take up more than my
one parking space. It may look
crooked, but I usually count it a
decent parking job if I'm in the
lines. -
Now honesty compels me to
admit that I have, sometimes,
unintentionally, not quite gotten
between the lines. And if I have
been in a hurry, I have raced


into the store and
left it as it was.
One time when I
did this while out
of town, some wag


LAURA'S LOOK

Laura Ware


wrote "learn to
drive" in the dust on my back
window. Now I need to digress
again and explain that I happen
to live on an unpaved road,
which means my car can get
pretty dusty when it hasn't
rained in a while. That's why
they could write in my back
window. Needless to say, my
window got cleaned soon after I
got home.'
Now someone was obviously
annoyed enough with my driv-
ing (and perhaps my dusty
windshield) to leave me a nasty
anonymous note. I don't believe
I have frustrated someone to the
extent a driver apparently drove
a shopkeeper in Mahopac, N.Y.
According to the news story I
read, Wasek Safrah got upset
with an employee from a store
at the strip mall where he
worked. Apparently, the


bin.
Now it is important to note
that the employee in question,
whose name was not released,
was legally parked. Neverthe-
less Safrah got into a heated
argument with the employee
about the placement of his car.
According to the police
report, Safrah at one point actu-
ally punched the other guy's
car, putting a dent into it. (The
driver was not in the car). Then
Safrah went to a forklift conve-
niently-parked in the parking lot
and, lifted the offending car up
in the air.
As a: finishing touch, Safrah
allegedly punched the driver in
the mouth. The car was eventu-
ally lowered back to the
ground, and Safrah was arrested
on charges of criminal mischief
and assault.


employee had
parked his car in
such a way as to
block Safrah's
access to a storage
container or trash

Sew Special is

so very special
Editor:
Judy at Sew Special was so
helpful in my selection of the
color and size of name to be
enhanced by embroidery on the
pillow case I took in.
Leaving their store I fell in
the parking lot. Seeing as both
knees were scraped, right wrist
compromised (it was broken), I
could not get up. Thank good-
ness Sew Special, next to the
Light House, had an ad for their
business on the side of the
building, using my cell phone, I
called to ask for assistance.
Dave came out, picked me up
and walked me to my car. The
next. day. Dave called to see
how Fwas.
Judy and Dave are so spe-
!cial. They operate a beautiful
arraN of items. .
Sebring is indeed fortunate
to have such wonderful people
as business owners in our com-
munity.

Kids celebrate

being drug free
Editor:
What an incredible Red
Ribbon Week we have had.
Our theme for the week
"Run Your Own Life-Stay
Drug Free" has certainly been
appropriate. The week started
off with our first Red Ribbon
Run at Avon Park High School
Football Field. With Chet
Brojek as our race director we
had 291 runners, 63 volunteers,
and lots of parents. The first
six finishers in each race
received medallions.
Kindergarten through second
grade ran a quarter-mile, third
through fifth ran a half-mile,,
and middle and high school ran
one-mile. Avon Elementary
School received the trophy for
the highest percentage of ele-
mentary school participation.
They had almost 20 percent of
their school. running on
Saturday. Hill Gustat Middle
School won for the, middle

Beads Gone

Wild helped
Editor:
I am writing today to send a
special thanks to Adam and
Clark at Beads Gone Wild at
Wild Artist Jewelry located at
125 N. Ridgewood Drive here
in Sebring.
My Cadette Girl Scout Troop
422 needed to complete several
projects in order, to earn their
"Just Jewelry" Interest Project
patch, so when my mother and
I contacted them to see about
getting help from their store to
finish this badge work both
Adam and Clark were more
than enthusiastic about helping
us.
Our girls learned how a bead
store is set up as well as com-
paring certain kinds of beads,
findings and methods of mak-
ing jewelry.
Each girl made and took
home two beautiful pieces of
jewelry and received so much


guidance from the class that
their parents \were \ery
impressed when they' brought
the items home.
The selection of beads was
huge and extremely varied and
the other items for sale in the
store are simply wonderful.
The classes are great and very
informative.
If you want to learn how to
make jewelry for yourself or to
give as a gift, do yourself a
great favor and visit Adam or
Clark at Beads Gone Wild at
Wild Artist Jewelry soon.

Editor:
I must take time to publicly
thank the great staff and courte-
ous service received at The
Print Shop in Sebring. The
extra effort by Holly was a sign
of people that .care about peo-
ple.
Thank you again and I rec-
ommend their services to any-
one in need of business adver-

More photos of

event wanted
Editor:
I could not believe my eyes,
seeing the hidden article in
today's (Oct. 25) 'News-Sun'
regarding the Memory Walk.
Have you no pride in America?
The bulk of bricks at the Sea
Museum walk are for our mili-
tary. It is our way of showing
our appreciation for their help-
ing to maintain our freedom.
Your photographer took
many pictures of' the partici-
pants, sure was a waste of film.
When the third phase takes
place, won't you please show
that Sebring is proud to have a
place to recognize our fellow
Americans who gave so much
for the "land of the free and the
home of the brave!"
Jo Vinsand

Editor's note: We understand
your unhappiness with the size
of the photograph. We wish we
had room to run all of our plio-
tographer's work. Sometimes
we have to be happy with the
ability to get just one of her
photos from an event pub-
lished.

Now after I spent a few min-
utes imagining being strong
enough and ticked off enough
to put a dent in a car (I'd exper-
iment except I need my hands
for typing and besides my cars
don't need dents) I wondered
what Safrah had intended to do
with the other guy's car once he
lifted it up with the forklift.
Was he going to just leave it
up there long enough to get to
his storage container or whatev-
er and then put it back? Was he
going to park it somewhere
else? Or maybe drop it to dent it
further?
All I know is I'm going to
look around next time I park
anywhere. If I see. a forklift in
the area I'm going to take a few
minutes and make sure I'm
parked legally and out of any-
one's way. You can't be too
careful.

What are you thankful for?


Well it's that
time of the year
again to go turkey
hunting or buy one
at Wal-Mart and


enjoy it with family
and friends, giving, thanks for
the many blessings we enjoy.
I was standing in church the
other day, singing a song and
one of the lines really jumped
out at me. It says, "He came
near from the everlasting into
the world we live, the Father's
only son." .., ,
It got me to thinking how He
came near into the world d we
live. This 'world that is so
imperfect, filled with sorrow,
tragedy, trials, tests, and imper-
fect, hurting, confused people.
We've all heard of the fair-
weather friends but He wasn't
and still isn't like that. He dares
to walk into our times of dark-
ness when others are too afraid
to come near. Even though He.
is holy, He doesn't hold that


against us and, of
course, has. made a
way that we can be
in fellowship with
Him.'


I find that so
awesome ... because when a
person is hurting, the last thing
they need is for people to look
the other way ... or to pretend
they don't hear their cry.
So I'm thankful for a real
Savior who has, touched a real
world and loves us despite our
many shortcomings and flaws.
It's a blessing knowing that I
can pour out my fears to Him,
my complaints, my doubts and
it doesn't unnerve Him or rattle
His cage. He can handle the
complexities of our personali-
ties.
I'm grateful that my boss
really cares about her employ-
ees and is like a mother hen to
us all. My other boss is also
very inspiring as far as taking
the bull by the horns. She keeps


the newsroom motivated as
well. And it's great working
with such an awesome team of
people.
Another thing I'm thankful
for is our veterans and those
still fighting to preserve the
freedoms we have enjoyed and
the families that have so
unselfishly. allowed them to do
so.
It's: great living in America
where we can still speak our
mind. It's the tone we say it in
that can get us in hot water. And
choosing our words wisely
helps.
My family is a blessing to me
as no one loves you or puts up
with you like family. My
extended family has also been a
blessing to me as well.
What are you thankful for?

Project will reduce groundwater

pumping in Highlands County


!, I / I ". r. .,
The S,,uthv. est Fiorida after r
Management District
Go. erning Boaid Tuesda.i
approved a project that v, ill
reduce tgiund. .itei puniping at
Ro\ce Ranch.
The project in ol\ es
installing a ,ae.ithei station. soil
nlOistuie ensouis and JuitoniLated
pump controls at the citrus farm
o0i ned by the Board of Trustees
of the Initernal Impro\ement
Trust Fund, v.hich funds the
purchase of state parks and
other state lands. Royce Ranch
is located in cenual Highlands
Count i
Installing a '.eathci station
helps farmers irrigate ninie pre-
cisel',. hbaed on v.eathei condi-
tions Foi example, during
frost-freeze e\ems the farmer
has exact data ot[ the area and
can turn on his pumps at the
appropriate time instead of
pumping all nihlt


Installing soil moisture sen-
sors and automated pump con-
trols increases irrigation effi-
cienci by only turning on w hen
%water is needed
The goal of this project is to
reduce pumping from the upper
Floridian aquifer. T-vo
Flordian wells and one superfi-
cial well are used for irriCation
at Royce Ranch. According to
reported data. an average of
175.000 gallons per da, igpdu
is used to irrigate the 189 acres
of citrus. The project is expect-
ed to reduce pumping by 10
percent.
This project is part of the
District's Facilitating
Agricultural Resource
Management Sy stems
iFARMISi program, which is a
cost-share reimbursement pro-
gram that conserves 'water and
protects water quality within
the Southern Water Use
Caution Area (SWUCAi.


The FARMS program is
jointly funded by state appro-
priations. the District's General
Fund, the District's Alafia
River. Peace River and
Nlanasota basin boards and the
Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services. The FARMS Program
is expected to reduce ground-
water pumping by 40 million
gallons per day over the next 20
e ears.
This project is expected to
cost $70.000. of which up to
$35.000 will be funded b\ the
District's Governing Board. the
District's Peace River Basin
Board and state appropriations.
The remaining funds will come
from the University of Florida
Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences (IFAS)
Citrus Research and Education
Foundation and the Board of
Trustees of the Internal
Improvement Trust Fund.


One of the things I
love about the
Internet is the was it
opens the doors of a
world filled with
strange, odd, and
downright stupid
news stories.
And being the
good Internet looker-
upper (or whatever
it's called) I am. I
wanted to be able to
share with the good
citizens of Highlands


County these utterly
ridiculous stories.
gleaned from news sources all
over the world.
Hopefully. this will become a
regular feature, pro\ ided people
keep on doing stupid things.
So here's a look at a few sto-
ries that are just a little bit dif-
ferent than your e% eryday new s.
Enjoy.
From the 'Your
Government at Work'
department
(From the London
Tlegr'aph}
It's not that unusual for a
town or city council to spend a
significant sum of money to
study something.
What the Haering council in
Essex. England, did is spend
10.000 pounds (almost $18.700
Americani to prepare a 300-
page report.
Sounds important, right?
Well. not really.
The study was designed to
investigate "who keeps on inter-
rupting council meetings by
making "baa" noises.
Seriously.
Apparently. the trouble
began last September during
talks about placing a mobile
home park on land that was the
home of rare breeds of sheep.


The investigation
has uncovered a list
of four suspects, who
will apparently be
interrogated (sort of)
by a special commit-
tee.
Denis O'Flynn.
who has the misfor-
tune of being one of
the suspects, summed
it up better than I
could ever hope to.
"The fact that this
investigation has cost
so much time and


money is the height
of stupidity."
Guess they could hear
her now
(From News 24.com, South
Africa)
A woman in Egypt %was
arrested at customs for having
labor pains. Well. sort of.
The \\oman was actually pre-
tending to have labor pains to
escape customs in Egypt. after
flying in from Dubai.
So why w\as she pretending?
Well. because she was smug-
gling cell phones. Yes. cell
phones.
The %woman \\as smuggling
48 cell phones underneath her
clothing. The phones. valued at
$17.000, were found after cus-
toms officials frisked her.
Unfortunately for the "moth-
er." she was arrested.
Criminality starts
young these days
(from The News Journal.
Wilmington, Del.)
Two brothers successfully
passing off counterfeit $20 bills
as real not that newsworthy.
But when those brothers are
12- and 13-year-old middle
school students., well. things get
a little more interesting.
The boys. from Dagsboro,


Delaiware. somehow managed
to print out the money from
their home computer. The
money wias realistic enough to
fool the cafeteria workers at
their school cafeteria, and the
enterprising youngsters were
able to buy food with the fake
cash.
Their clever scheme %was-
uncovered when the fake bills.
made it to a bank. who recog-;
nized that the bills weren't real.:
The bills were traced back to.
the boys,. who %were arrested.
And who says that video-
games are all that kids are inter-'
ested in these days?
And you thought your:

Well, except for the pirate.

mate police) proposals tend to
be slightly overlooked by the
w hole drunken pirate thing.
"Before we were a country.
i.piratesi were running mini-
democracies." Hill said. "We-
need to get back to that."
Unfortunately for people,
who like to laugh. Hill hasn't

Do it again
"Do it again," I reluc-
tantly told myself.
I had been painting the
main rooms of our house
using a tri-color progres-
sion. Only the hallway
remained. After several
days break, I picked up
brush and roller again.
However, that morning
I felt burdened by a spiri-
tual dilemma;, yet I kept
trying to intellectually
,resolve it.

ARTS & LEISURE


Colors creep in with fall season


There's no other time of year when
hot colors are so prominent in advertis-
ing, decorations, clothing and house-
hold goods. It doesn't seem to matter
whether you live in Miami or Detroit,
Brownsville or Fargo, fall colors are,
well, bright. Remember the old knock-
knock jokes? "Knock-knock." "Who's
there?" "Orange." "Orange who?"
Paula Danziger tells us the answer with
her title, "Orange You Glad It's LIBRAR
Halloween, Amber Brown?" Fall -
comes creeping in with mis[t morn- Ca
ings, cool Awinds. time changes and Hess
Halloween. Orange is the defining_
color of October and no more celebrat-
ed than in your libraries.
Florida has a special bond with this color. Read
all about it in "Florida Citrus Crate Labels: An
Illustrated History." Our bright color and fruit
connection are fair game for authors, so expect
some juicy reading %\ith Tim Dorsey's Florida
fiction. "Orange Crush," "Orange Pulp: Stories
of Mayhem, Murder and NIMster)," or Betsy
Carter's "Orange Blossom Special."
John Shannon's Jack Liffey series began in
2001 %\%ith "The Orange Curtain," and continued
Sixth "Streets on Fire," "City of Strangers" and
"Terminal Island." lM\ steil icon John
MacDonald adds his touch in "Brichit Ot.nce for
the Shroud" Classic fiction I\\rite Joseph
Wambaugh titled his 1990 book, "The Goldern
Orange." "NMurder in Manhattan" includes the
Bernard St James stor\. "The Valencia Orange
Murder." Rosanne Keller is into citrus in a big
way with "The Orange Grote and Other Stories."
.I'm not sure I agree %\ith her, but Adrian
McKint. 's book title says "Orange Rhy me, With
Everything." It's also hard to make sense of
Joanne Harris' title "Fi\e Quarters of the
Orange." I guess it's just the w\ai October affects
us. or so %%e are to believe. sa.s Leone Ross. in
"Orange Laughter
Particularly appropriate for that slightly hair-

raising, perfect-for-storytelling cele-
bration of Halloween is the classic
writing of Arthur Conan Doyle. You'll
want to turn up the lights and check
behind the curtains when you read
"Three Adventures of Sherlock
Holmes: The Speckled Band, the 5
Orange Pips, the Crown of Diamonds."
By the way, you do know that "pips"
are fruit seeds? Only Doyle could send
a chill down your spine with the left-
overs of an orange.
Non-fiction lovers aren t squeezed
out of titles. Enjo, Marjorie Medanr's
"Hert's Orange Winter: a StorN of
Florida in 1880," or check out Avon


Park Libirar 's "Orange Journalism: Voices From
Florida News papers." There's country on our
shelves. Take home "From the Orange Mailbo\:
Notes From a Few Country Acres."
I wonder how many knew of "War Plan
Orange: The U.S. Strategy to Defeat Japan, 1897-
1945." Here's a flag fact: No country or state in
the United States uses orange as a main color on
their flag.
Kids ... we haven't left you out of our color
ioit. so take home "Ed Emberley's Big Orange
Di av in' Book," or one of the 16 titles in the A-\ to
Z NM\steiie- s eries, by Ron Ro\. called "The

Two primary watersheds found in Highlands


No matter where you live in
Highlands County, in the
United States or on earth, you
live in a watershed
What exactly is a watershed?
A watershed is an area of land
where all the water applied to
the land flows downhill to a
specified body of water. This
water may be applied through
rainfall, irrigation, car washing
and many other activities.
We have two primary water-
sheds in Highlands County,
comprised of many smaller,
individual lake and stream
watersheds. Water in the north-
west portion of the county
flows towards the Peace River
and the Gulf, while the rest of
the water flows toward Lake
Okeechobee and ultimately to
the Atlantic Ocean.
Flowing water picks up small
amounts of pollutants, such as
nutrients and chemicals, as it
moves along, transporting these
materials to lakes and streams.


You influence what happens
in your watershed, good or bad,'
by how you treat the natural
resources water, soil, air,
plants and animals. And your
actions in your small watershed
affect the larger watershed
downstream. You can help pro-
tect your watershed by follow-
ing five simple steps.
1. Use fertilizers and pesti-
cides sparingly. Some very
common actions, such as using
more fertilizers and pesticides
than a lawn needs, can result in
pollution as stormwater runoff
transports the excess nutrients
to water bodies. A Florida-
friendly yard minimizes the
need for fertilizer and pesti-
cides.
2. Conserve water. Over
watering can damage lawns and
plants and create problems such
as a shallow root system;
increased disease, weed, or
insect infestation; reduced
drought tolerance; increased


thatch and excessive
growth; and reduced
tolerance to other '.
stresses such as shade
and soil problems. i
The best way to irri
gate an established
lawn is on an as-
needed basis. Grass
blades will begin to
wilt (e.g., fold, turn NEW
bluish-green in color, T
and not recover from
traffic or footprints) WATE
as the moisture
begins to be depleted Jennife
in the soil. If the lawvn -
shows signs of slight
wilting, it is time to irrigate
with water. The amount of
water applied should not vary,
but the frequency with which
your lawn needs water can vary
due to season, soil type, grass
species, temperature, etc. Using
Florida-friendly landscaping
techniques also saves water.
3. Have septic systems


FROM

HE

ERSHED

er Abbey


inspected regularly.
Slow buildups of
sludge and scum are
normal. Removal of
these materials by
periodic pumping
and appropriate dis-
posal is necessary to
protect the absorption
field from materials
that will damage its
effectiveness.
Additives that are
marketed as septic,
tank cleaners, rejuve-


nators, or primers are
not recommended.
Strong chemicals can harm a
septic system, and Florida's
code prohibits the sale of organ-
ic. chemical solvents for the pur-
pose of degreasing or declog-
ging septic systems.
4. Never dump an\ thing
down a storm drain. Storm
drains help prevent flooding of.


streets and highways by quickly
and efficiently transferring rain-
water into nearby water bodies.
Chemicals and other toxins
dumped in storm drains will be
flushed directly into the lake
with storm water.
5. Pick up after pets. In high
"pet traffic" areas near water
bodies, bacteria from pet waste
can be carried into water bod-
ies, harming fish and other ani-
mals. The Environmental
Protection Agency has estimat-
ed that for watersheds of up to
20-square miles draining ; to
small coastal bays, two to three
days of droppings from a popu-
lation of about 100 dogs would
contribute enough bacteria and
nutrients to temporarily close a
bay to swimming. Public swim
beaches in Highlands Couni\
are monitored by the county's
Health Department for fecal
coliform bacteria.


We can reduce the amount of
nonpoint-source pollution that
enters a watershed by simple
actions like using Florida-
friendly landscaping to reduce
fertilizer and pesticides, prac-
ticing water conservation tech-
niques, inspecting and main-
taining septic tanks regularly,
picking up pet waste and pro-
tection storm drains from chem-
icals.

,protecting our watershed or
Florida-friendly landscaping,

was created to do," she said.
"Now I'm in the right place. At
least for now. I have lots of
hopes and dreams for the
future."
She credits SMS guidance
counselors Marcia Clements
and Donna Foster for helping
her reach her dream of teach-
ing art at the school. "Donna
Foster encouraged me and
showed me steps to change my
career. And here the 're sup-
pose to help middle school stu-
.dents. The Sebring Middle
School counselors 'were posi-


ti'e and helped me develop
step by step how to accomplish
my goals. I %would bounce
ideas off them."
Ross began her career
change last year before
Christinas by w orking from a
study guide through the school
district. She took the test and is
now certified to teach art.
"I see kids \ ho are loaded
with talent I \\ant ii-1 kids to
discover "%ho they are. It's not
about finding artist." Ross said.
"I excite my kids and give
them the equipment to empow% -
er them for their future."
Art is show much more than
just coloring or painting. Ross

FEARS
Continued from IC
one else dying.
In talking vvith a counselor
at school and other profession-
als. the girls discovered that
%when most people lose some-
one it seems the> ha'e lost the
world. There are seven stages a
person goes through when
grie% ing. Those stages are dis-
belief, anger, phy sical prob-
lems. fear, guilt, prolonged
depression and acceptance.
Everyone expenences these
stages in various ways.
A person can deal w ith a
major loss of a loved one by:
Maintaining a healthy diet
Avoid abusing alcohol or
medications
Stay active
Get professional help
when needed
Lozier, 13, said elevators
scare her the most. "When.
your on them, they might stop
and you are stuck in them for-
ever."
She also admitted being
afraid of the dark, because she
is scared that someone is going
to attack her. "For example,
one night I was sound asleep in
bed, when all of a sudden I
heard a screech like nails on a
chalkboard across my window
I awoke abruptly. I got out of
bed cautiously and creeped
toward my window. I pulled
the drapes back. slowly, to
reveal nothing but a tree
branch."
Dellacasa gets scared of
going somewhere alone and
embarrassing herself by doing
the wrong, thing.
Blaine, 14, admitted she has
stage fright. She is scared,


"because there are a lot of peo-
ple and the mnught judge you if
you do the %wrong thing."
Rush. 13. is scared of
crowds. "'They are 'ery push\
and they touch you and stare,
and with m. claustrophobia
everything seems smaller Call
me crazy, but I'm not a fan of
being bumped into or being so
close to a person next to me
and know w hat they had for
breakfast. I hate a mild case of
claustrophobia, so 'when I'm in
a large crowded room, it's as if
the room has gotten smaller.
there's less space around me.
which freaks me out."
During her research in
study ing fears. Rush learned
that claustrophobia is the "fear
of small or enclosed spaces."
but. in actuality, it should be
know n as "fear of not having
an escape route," because
claustrophobic who are put inl
small spaces. want to get out of
there quickIl.
The 'week before school
started. Rush and her father
Rooter went on a cruise to

Gardening can be good mental health therapy


Have you ever thought of
.,gardening as mental health ther-
apy?
o You may never have thought
,of gardening as a fitness activi-
lty. It is and that may be part of
-the reason for its success in
.leading people to healthy lives.
Just think about the way
..walking outside refreshes you,
-or how seeing nature bloom and
hearing the bird's chirps in the
,spring lifts your spirits. You
find peace, serenity and satis-
L'faction while: walking in your
-garden. It is easy to imagine
how making things grow can be
a boost in self-esteem and a jolt
of independence.
When you garden, you


accomplish 'something while
benefitting your mind 'and body
at the same time. When you
push the w heelbarrow you are
lifting weights. Trimming
shrubs takes as much energy as
a walk. 'Raking the lawn,
requires as much effort as riding
a bike. Pushing a lawn mower
bums as many .calories as
swimming laps. Instead of wait-
ing to reap the benefits of a
treadmill, you can see the
results of your labor in beautiful
settings and healthy fruit and
vegetables at harvest time.
Gardening can provide you
with exercise for your heart
muscles and increase your flex-
ibility. Also provide the strength


training important in
the prevention of
osteoporosis.
The .same benefits
your body receives
from physical activity
-also apply to your
brain, like any muscle,
the brain needs stimu-
lation in the form of
physical and mental GRO
activity to keep it S
strong and vital, physi-
cal exercise also keeps Ann
your mind sharp and ,_
focused.
Gardening is a very
relaxing activity; it helps us to
commune with nature, be out
side to enjoy the weather and to

communicate with
S friends and neighbors,
walking down the
street. Walks in the gar-
den can help to reduce
anxiety, stress and
depression. This could
come from the satisfac-
tion we get from nur-
turing and caring from
VING plants. It might even be
Nu the results we get from
our efforts when we
Cole see colorful .and fra-
- grant flowers or pick
that fresh tomato from
the vine.
The benefits of gardening
(horticulture ) therapy are what
make it so different than other


types of therapy. People of any
age can do it. and acti\ ities can
be varied according to abilities.
Work areas can be at a different
level to accommodate those
who are in wheelchairs or
unable to bend. Also, horticul-
ture therapy can be done out
year round in Florida.
You can actually have fun in
therapy and have something to
show for your work. This thera-
py enhances physical, mental
and social ;health. Horticulture
therapy can improve many peo-
ple's lives. Even if it is only to
help relax and unwind, this
therapy can improve any one
life.


So get out there. Start dig-
ging, raking, bending pushing,
lifting, and planting. Before
long you will be harvesting bet-.
ter mental and physical health
while you enjoy those new
flowers and vegetables you
have grown.
Remember it is not about
how to take care of plants; it's
about how plants can be used to
take care of people.

Don't forget parents when



giving baby shower gifts


* News-Sun correspondent Pauline Au Yang
provides etiquette tips for readers on the last
Sunday) of each month in the LifestYle section.

When attending a baby showier, what do I
give? Do I give the parents a gift as weil?
: For couples wanting a baby and they are able
to conceive, this is a wonderfully joyous occa-
sion. To avoid duplication, the more affluent peo-
ple get a gift registry.
However, society tends to focus on the bab.
while the parents are ignored. What I suggest is
that, a pampering gift is given to the mom.
Included should be exfoliating scrub, scented
bath oils, wash cloths, decaffeinated tea. Offer to
baby-sit so that the new mom may have some
"me time."
How many times when a baby is born do we
inquire about how the mom is doing? The calls or
inquiry are always about the infant/infants.
Meanwhile, the new mom with her enlarged
breasts, sleepless nights and mood sw ings feels
unattractive. This sometimes leads to depression.
Before the birth we say, when are you due?,
How far are you in your pregnancy'? Do you
know what you are having?
How about the dads? They too are ignored.
Seldom does society inquire about the dads. In
the grocery store, people ask how is little "Sara?"
At \~york or play the question asked is "How is the
-baby"^Be-sensitive-toward-the parents; If there

are siblings, be mindful of them as well.
Finally. yes we like to oooh and aaah when see
the new baby items, but the best gifts are diapers,
diapers and more diapers. Also give w ipes, wipes
and more w ipes. A baby can never have too much
of these essential items.

Local college nurses on a winning streak
b-


Sp -',;Il r.Itht N '.S-to
AVON PARK For the past
four years in a row. all the nurs-
ing graduates from South
Florida Community College
ha\e passed the state board
exam that certifies them as reg-
istered nurses.
And just last week. the col-
lege learned that its most recent
class of licensed practical nurs-
es followed suit by seeing all 36
of its graduates passing the crit-
ical test.
SFCC Nursing Education
chair and professor Dr. Mary
Ann Fritz couldn't be prouder
of her students and her staff.
Three years ago. SFCC's
Nursing Program %was the only
one in the state including
those based at four-\ear col-
leges and universities that
could boast about its graduates'
100 percent pass rates.
"We're real happy and real
excited," Fritz said. Such profi-
ciency can only add to the high
statewide reputation graduates
are bringing home to their alma
mater. Most nursing schools
across the state can only point
to an 85 or 90 percent pass rate.
Fritz attributes SFCC's suc-
cess to three factors.
First. she said, is the dedica-
Lion of SFCC's faculty mem-
bers to the success of their stu-
dents. After working with stu-
dents so intensely for more than
a one- or two-year period, the
teaching staff wants to see their
students not just graduate from
SFCC, but to be licensed as
working nurses.
Secondly. "'We offer a very
traditional program." Fritz said.
SFCC's trading is 'ery rigor-
ous and 'ery hands-on. Fritz
has heard about some schools
that she believes relies too
heavily on computer-based
instruction, and on too little
clinical experience.
In addition. SFCC enjoys a
high lesel of cooperauon from
the local hospitals and nursing
homes, which offer students
critical clinical experience.
But when it's all said and
done, and ntirse, sit down tfor


Special theih Nes-Sun
AVON PARK So what's the real
reason for the 100 percent pass rate of
South Florida Community College's
nursing graduates taking the daylong
state exam? The students know.
As you might expect. such distinc-
tion involves plenty of hard work and
dedication on the part of college facul-
tv and staff. But there's something else
at play here: the students themselves.
From day one in the registered nurse
program, "We were told that if we per-
formed above average, we'll pass the
state exam." Jennifer Garner, of Lake
Placid. said. She is a second-year RN
student who waited three full years to
get into SFCC's nursing school. Garner
could have started earlier at another
school's nursing program, which could
only boast an 80 percent pass rate on
the state exam.
Garner held out for a slot at SFCC.
As she tells it. she wasn't prepared, to
waste two years of her life on a.pro-
gram that might not prepare her for the
biggest test of her career. She knew
SFCC's reputation for turning out
graduates '\ho could actually get their
licenses.
Another big factor playing in SFCC
graduates' favor is practice, practice,
practice, believes fellow student Lisa
Wilson. a practiced licensed practical
nurse now studying to transition to her
RN. Two hours of every week of every
semester, SFCC's nursing students are
required to take mock state exams -
and Dr. Mary Ann Fritz. chairman of


their critical state board exams.
her SFCC's students are ieady.
Fritz said.
They're-ready because. from
the start. SFCC students are
%well prepared. For two h6urs a
%week. eserN week, students are
requiredd to practice taking
mock versions of the state
exam. Fritz said. "B. the time
they take the real thing, they've
seen the kind of questions
they'll get and on the com-
puter. They are confident."
Typically. registered nurse


Counres photo
In one of South Florida Community College's clinical classrooms, Lisa Wilson (left)
and Jennifer Garner says the college's two-year registered nurse program is geared
toward not just graduating students, but preparing them for the all-important
state exam. For four years in a row now, every single SFCC nursing graduate has
passed his or her licensing board exam. Other nursing schools across the state are
noticing.


SFCC's Nursing Education Program.
checks the results for weaknesses.
"That." Wilson said. "gets you in the
right frame of mind." So does the
school's strict attendance policy, she
added. -
Gamer likes- SFCC's traditional
approach to nursing. "We show up
nicely groomed. There aren't any


candidates taking their state
board exams hase to answer 75
to 260 questions. Candidates for
the licensed practical nursing
exam hawe to answer 85 to 250
questions. Almost every time.
Fritz's students can't kwait to
phone her to tell her the news
that the\ passed.
For sears, SFCC's 20-some
year old nursing program swas
on the small side. but in recent
years it has expanded. Three
years ago. SFCC began offering
nursing naming at the Hardee


acrylic nails or colored hair here."
SFCC even has its own nurse's hat. and
Garmer's looking forward to the day'
she can wear hers. "Yeah, I %want my
hat. I want the white the white dress,
the white stockings. I want no one mis-
taking that I am a nurse!"
When SFCC nursing students do
their clinicall" work as interns in


campus in Wauchula. This past
)ear, the program added 12
additional slots for registered
nurses. Right now the college is
graduating 60 nurses a year: 24
registered nurses and 36
licensed practical nurses. NMany
of the RN students are now'
\worakng LPNs who are "transi-
tioning" to become RNs by tak-
ing an additional year of class-
es.
The opportunities awaiting
SFCC's graduates can literally\
lake them anywhere. The state


hospitals and nursing homes "The
doctors tell us "You guys are great,' "
Wilson said. referring to SFCC's stu-
dents. "They say 'You know. your '
stuff.'" .' -
Both women-believe Fritz when she
tells them that if they make superior
grades at school,, that they'll pass the
state exam. All the students know
there's a long waiting list to get in, and
that the program's faculty only want to
focus their energies on those who seem
destined to succeed.
That wait list allows SFCC to. more
selective about the students it admits in
the first place. Fritz's attitude of hard
work and success "makes a real differ-
ence." Garner said. "She'll make sure
we pass."
Wilson's noticed that, as an LPN'
graduate of SFCC, she' sometimes
knows more. than RNs from other.
schools. "Sometimes ,they're/ taken l
aback by our knowledge. So, yes, they
notice. We have an excellent program."
Garner's seen a difference; too. She-
has friends attending different:inursing
schools. When they're chatig. about.:.'
medical- topics on the Interiet, "I can
tell they're from other schools. They '.
just don't knows. some thingss we do. I'.
think that's because we. know more 1,
than what's expected." :'
When Garner's visits, other hospi-
tals, sometimes she.can 'pick out the
SFCC graduates. "They: nay have
gone here 10 years ago,' but I'can tell
that they went here, just'by the 'way "
, they're doing things."' "i -


exam is actually based on
national standards, meaning
licensure in Florida is good in
any other state, as .well as ans
United States territory.
Right now across the country.
there is a shortage of 120.000)
trained and licensed nurses.
Fritz said. By the year 2020. the
medical field predicts the short-
age to rise dramatically to
1.2 million. SFCC graduates are
reporting starting wages of $19-
$20 per hour. LPNs are earning
the same rates as RNs.


One reason for the present
and projected shortage is the
continuing rise in opportunities
afforded women in the work
force. "It used to be that d
woman had to become either a'
teacher or a nurse. That's not
true anymore." Fritz said. Th(
demand for trained profession-
als. combined "with higher wag!e
rates, is increasingly attracting
more men to the field. About a
quarter of one of SFCC's cur'
rent nursing classes are men,
Fritz pointed out.

drilled the Frostproof
Bulldogs 35-0 for its sev-
enth straight victory and
first district title since
1997. The story of the
night was the Devils' domi-
nant defensive line. The
Bulldogs had 21 yards of
total offense in the first half
and in the second half, of
the 18 plays Frostproof
ran, only lour of them
gained any yardage at all.

Lake Placid running back Stephen Gist tries to find a lane against St.
Petersburg Catholic Friday night.


By MARCUS WILKINS
,S[,,swn IIw r
LAKE PLACID A month ago. the
Green Dragons spent an evening running
around the field at Roger Scarborough
Stadium on homecoming night chasing after
the touted and talented running back Carlton
Thoimas from Frostproof.
Apparently it was so much fun. theN
thought they'd re-enact the experience Friday
night.
This time, the \willing participant \was St.
Pete Catholic's featured back Jock Sanders.
\%ho looked more like BarrN Sanders as he
switched the field, juked left and right and
made the Dragons miss tackles en route to a
48-25 cremation.
The Barons got 142 yards of total offense
and four touchdowns from the senior, with
dashes from 58 and 64 \ards out. It was too
much for the Lake Placid defense to handle
and too much for the offense to overcome.
The crowd in attendance \was treated to an


inspiring start as the Dragons drole down the
field from 35 Nards out for the Came's first
score. RoN tre Hill punched it in from the 16 to
gie the Dragons a 6-0 lead after a missed
extra-point attempt.
The Barons took o'er on
thetr own 20 after the kickoff
but stalled repeatedly moo ing
backwards w ith a pair of hold-
ing flags and a dela\ of game.
SPC missed a field goal from
-. 21 Nards to give the ball back to
Up Next Lake Placid.
Dragons plat After the Dragons next drive
at LaBelle fizzled, SPC showed the first
on Friday glimpse of Sanders' impressive
skill,. On a routine short
yardage handoff, the shift, back made a pair
of cuts and turned it into a 65-yard touch-
down run. but it was to be merely an exhibi-
tion called back on an illegal block penalty.

if Memories of happy days

...and Tommy


W on the farm

I spent a lot of time in the
outdoors as a youngster, decid-
edly more so than any of my
brothers or friends. I was
attracted to the woods by the
quiet solitude and the expecta-
tion of finding something new
and unknown to satisfy my
youthful curiosity.
During the school months, I
felt confined until the week-
ends came and I could steal
away to scour the hillsides
along some small stream. My
outdoor adventures didn't
interfere with my school work;
in fact I believe they were a Using

i. Grandpa stood the


loneliness for a while, but after
a couple of years he sold the
farm and built a cabin in a
neighbor's woodland. It sat in
a small valley between dark
shaded hillsides along a little
stream. A crude fence kept the
cows and horses away from the
doorstep.
I started spending summers
with grandpa at the cabin in
my teenage years. For me it
was fabulous, much like the
way pioneers must have lived.
We carried water from a spring
high on a hillside. It was more
than a short walk from the road
to the cabin and since grandpa
didn't drive, there was no need
for a driveway, just a foot path.
During those summers at the
cabin, I didn't get to see
Tommy very often. His family
had hired him out to another
farm family. He only came
home every other weekend.
When he was 17, Tommy
enlisted in the Navy. Later, I
saw Tommy when he was
home on furlough because his
ship was sunk by a German
submarine in the
Mediterranean.
On his return to. duty, he was
transferred to the Marine Corps
and sent to the South Pacific as
a medic. Tommy died.on Iwo
Jima.
Grandpa died a few years
later and the cabin was demol-
ished. But Tommy, Grandpa
and the cabin are still cher-
ished in my memory where I
can live those days again and
again.

BARONS
Continued from ID
Once the Barons tasted the
end zone, however artificially,
they acted quickly and repeat-,
edly to return. A sustained drive
__ -with a pail of D:i id Girafdi
passes-to-wide receiver Darren
Hess moved the ball down to
the 11-yard line, and another
handoff to Sanders gave St.
Pete Catholic a 7-6 lead it
would never relinquish.
Big Baron plays on the
ground plagued the Dragons all
night, a symptom coach Shaw
Maddox attributed to a lack of
execution.
"We lost a lot out there," said'
Maddox scratching his head
after the loss. "We didn't do the
things that we practiced all
week and then came out here
and played like we were in slow
motion. You'd think that on

thing you could to leave here
with people remembering you
for how hard you scratched and
fought."
Sanders made it difficult at
the end of the first half \\ ith his
two longest plaN s of the night
The first was a "64-yard scram-
ble, weaving bet\ een toppling
Dragon defenders to the open
field. The second was a 58-yard
reception from Girardi in the
flat. Any amount of space was


too much to allow Sanders, and
soon after a pair of Dragon
missed tackles, the Barons had
built a 28-6 lead going into the
locker room.
The second half began with a
startling dash of cold water
when the sprinkler system
kicked on and doused the offi-
cials. The laughing crowd
hoped it was the splash of
refreshment Lake Placid needed
as they watched their Dragons

recover a Baron fumble on the
kickoff.
Conlin Vele',s touchdown
pass from 20 yards out to
Jonathan Simons gave those in
green something to shout about,
but the momentum was to be
sort-lived as' Sanders soon
notched hisa-'fourth and final'
touchdown of the night and the
game i as out of reach.
As high as Maddox's expec-
tations may be, he took some
comfort in, the fact that the
Dragons were able to move the
ball effectively at times.
Offensive contribution came
from a variety of positions on
Friday night, as Stephen Gist,
O.J. Williams and Hill made the
SPC defense work. But again,


poor execution and losing the
turnover battle had the fiery
coach shaking his head.
"With our kids, with the type
of players we have, they have to
do exactly what we tell them to
do, exactly the way we tell them
to do it. We don't have the kind


of speed to overcome N hen a
guy like (Sanders) cuts like
that," Maddox said. "We were
able to put some points on make
it interesting, but what can you
do? We"'.e got to learn to take
some pride and not take these
-kindof whippings."

only to look so feeble in the Fall
Classic.
This year was the longest
shot for the Cardinals, quite
possibly in their 124-year histo-
ry. Making the playoffs at all
was far-fetched in September,
and as they stared down -the
favored New York Mets and
Detroit Tigers, the odds grew
-longer and longer.

Painkiller charge
dropped against
Jaguars' McCray
Associated Press
JACKSONVILLE A drug
possession charge was dropped
Friday against Jacksonville
Jaguars defensive end Bobby
McCray, his attorney said.
McCray was arrested
Sunday when a Jacksonville
sheriff's officer found two
Vicodin pills in his pocket after
he was pulled over for speed-
ing.
McCray told the officer the
pills were prescribed by team
doctors following
Jacksonville's 27-7 loss at
Houston and instructed to take
them when he got home. But
McCray was arrested and
charged with possession of a
controlled painkiller because
he didn't have a prescription.
He also was charged with rac-
ing and reckless driving.
McCray's attorney, Hank
Cox, said he met with the state
attorney Friday morning, pro-
duced a prescription and had
the drug charge dropped.
Chief Assistant State
Attorney Jay Plotkin could not
confirm that the charge has
been officially dropped Friday.

Roger Scarborough Memorial
Stadium, knowing the game
was in progress 1,000 miles
away.
Fast forward to 11:30 p.m.,
the moment of truth. A sloppy
game full of errors and bumbles
was so signature of this World
Series, but it was quite possibly
:the most beautiful thing I've
ever seen.

zone, and Joseph Lezama's
point-after kick put the Streaks
up 13-0 with 2:52 left in the
half.
Another fumble by the
Devils allowed Sebring to tack
on another score before inter-
mission. Wilson rambled for 21
yards, then found a tightly cov-
ered Sam Robinson, who some-
how caught a pass while being
blanketed by a pair of defenders
at the goal line for a 26-yard
touchdown with 3.5 seconds
left. Wilson made it 21-0 when
he juked his way into the end
zone on a botch PAT kick
attempt.
Even with the big lead, the
Streaks couldn't rest easy. Last
year, the Devils erased an 11-
point deficit in the fourth quar-
ter to win. Two years ago,
Sebring led 28-0, but had to
hold off a rally to win 35-29.
"We addressed that at half-
time," Sebring coach Jared
Hamlin said. "It was like deja-
vu from two years ago, but the
kids didn't let that affect them."
Early in the third quarter, it
looked like the Streaks might
have a reason to be worried.
Josue Ortiz blocked a punt to
set the Devils up on the Sebring
19 to set up a l-Nard plunge bN
Buddy Duke that made it 21-7.
The Axon Park defense had
the Streaks going backward on
their next possession. but a late
hit penalty turned what would
hate been fourth and lone into a
first and 10. A fev\ pla, s later.
