Families currently living
in Federal Emergency
Management Agency trailers
will not be forced to move
out, even though FEMA no
longer owns the units.
"We're trying to let people
know that they do not ha\e to
get out." Emmett Garrison,
pastor of Sebring Church of
the Nazarene, said. "No one's
going to show up to ev'ict
them."
Garrison is actively trying
to get the "ord out to the
families in trailers that are
unaccounted for. FEMA con-
veyed the title for the travel
trailers to Higher Ground
Compassionate Ministries, a
non-profit group based out of
Pahokee that "%as formed last
year after Hurricane Wilma
"FEMA is not in the rental
or landlord business and is
turning over ownership of
these units to qualified not-

AVON P-RK -n informal group
oft volunteers are at work. creating what
they hope w ill be a premier scuba di ing
course 1ii Lake Verona.
The idea n as born out of the popular-
ity Lake Denton has w ith di' ing instiuc-
tors and their students.
A lake w ith clear water and a depth of
up to 50 feet. Denton has long been pop-
ular. But the like nestles in a primarily
residential area. and the neighbors ha,'e
suffered from its popularity..
Lake Verona has the same clear quali-
ty of water. and depths up to 75 feel to
accommodate deep di\ ing exercises
Better. it has a public beach, rest room


facilities. and parking alongside, so it is
a much more suitable eenue.
Preston Colb\. one of the organizers
of the course, said every effort is being
made to make it unusual and interesting.
He hopes to sink a 'ariety of boats, and
even an airplane and military artillery
pieces. so there "%ill be plenty. to keep
divers engaged and busy.
The main idea. Colby said. is to create
the kind of di% ing experience that would
turn da\ trippers into overnight guests.
He en' isions partnerships w ith local
hotels and restaurants, and packaged
miniature trips.
The group has already lowered and
secured a 12-fooi by 9-foot div ing plat-


form. about fie feet above the lake bed.
and about 20 feet below[ the surface.
This means no ice diners can follow
buoyed lines down to the platform hand-
o\er-hand in the beginning. With a solid
launching floor. the lake's bottom
remains undisturbed. leaving the water
clear.
Students "ill be able to perform and
practice basic skills along the completed
course's route, and then continue to
more advanced challenges. like night
di' ing. or emergency rescue techniques.
With as many as 300 people going
through Lake Denton on a ty pical week-
end da\. the better suited Lake Verona
promises to attract divers from all over
South and Central Florida.


Already. Colby said. di'e instructors
from Sarasota and Orlando ha'e
expressed excitement about the possibil-
ities. and their intention to make use of
the course.
He added that having more di ing at
Lake Verona would bring another bene-
fit. "It looks like a landfill out there." he
said, "but the divers %will clean it up."
Volunteers Iparticularly diners) are
needed, and donations especially of
sinkable objects, like boats or small
planes are welcome. For more infor-
mation call Colby at 386-3636.
Colby said divers would benefit the
cit\ in man\ way s.

The theme for Thursday evening on the
Circle %%as "New\ and Now," songs recorded in
the past fi e years. And there was a distinctly e
country flair to thie e ening, as seO en of the 11
singers chose a country song to perform.
Todd Allen. 36. Sebring, got the night olf to
arousing start. just as he did in the first semi-
finals. llen, clad in a black cowboy hat, sang
Tracy Byrd's country hit "Drinking Bone."
Allen bro'ughti out his usual repertoire of danc-
ing and getting the crowd involved, and he
was again one of the audience favorites.
Lake Placid's Brandy Flint, 18, did some-
thing completely different. -inging the song
"No Good Deed from the musical '\Vicked '
Flint struggled at the beginning of the song
during her first try. but after restarting. she got
back on track and impressed the judges
enough to ad' ance to the finals.
Floi Gonzalez. 3". Sebring. w\as once again
z cro' d fa, ornte, singing Matchbox Tent "'s
D"Diease," Gonzalez was the recipient of the
audience choice award for the second time,
and he won two tickets two Cy press Gardens
theme park in Winter Haven. The judges
fawned over his performance, with Marnie


France .aling "if I could gi'e \ou a 20 for
stage presence., ou'd get it."
The next person to advance \as Shawn
Know"les. 22, of Sebring Know les used his
distinctive high-pitched voice to his advan-
tage. singing a fast-paced versionn of the
Rascal Flatts hit "Me and NI) Gang." "It
sounded like 1 "\as sitting in the radio studio
with headphones on." judge Rooter Rush said
of Know les' performance

ad\ anced by singing the Gretchen Wilson bal-
lad "'When You Think \bout Cheatin.'" After
her performance, Nickla\w was complimented
both on her look and the dynamics of her
voice.
Rebekah Stephens, 29, Sebring, was also a
crowd pleaser, as she sang Miranda Lambert's
"Kerosene" Judge, Nlike Henry was highly
complimentary of Stephens' high-energy
singing, saying her performance was "what
tonight is all about."
Tracy Vega. 29. Lake Placid. overcame a
cold to advance to the finals. She sang the
slower-paced Rascal Flatts song "W\\hat Hurts
the Most," but her performance was still a
crowd favorite. The judges were just as
impressed, and Vega's voice was called the
"most easily recordable voice" of all the con-
testants.

'Lefty the Loggerhead Turtle'


visits Park Elementary School


By TREY CHRISTY
News-Sun
AVON PARK "Do any of
you have a dog or a cat?" asked
Hale Bremer, author of "Lefty
the Loggerhead Turtle," to the
kids in Donna Reed's third-
grade class at Park Elementary
School. To this all of the stu-
dents replied with an emphatic
"yes," some even, chiming in
that they had both.
"And what if something hap-
pened to them? You could get
another one, right?" Once again
the children replied "yes."
"Well kids, that is because
they are considered non-threat-
ened," Bremer said as he point-
ed to a chart, :detailing the
stages from non-threatened to
extinction. "Does anyone know
of a big lizard that may not be
around anymore?"
After a few students rose
their hands Bremer .called on
one. "Komodo Dragon," erupt-
ed the student at the verge of
falling off of his seat.
This answer ma\ not hate
been exactJly what Bremer %\as
looking _for, but it \"as _becom-.
- ing clear that the kids were get- .
ting the message. Eventually a
student answered "the
dinosaur," and the class talked
about how they are no longer
around, and therefore extinct.
Sea turtles may not be extinct
yet, but they are endangered.
This is one of many interesting
lessons Bremer was teaching
students. He was also there to
use his book to show kids that
anyone can be an author and
that any one of them can write a
book if they wish.
Bremer, a retired creative
writing professor, published the
book in 2004 and does class

week for third- and forth-

mals and plants that all. call the

After the presentation that

Restaurant plans military appreciation


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID On
Monday, Nov. 13, Golden
Corral will again salute all vet-
erans and active duty members
of the United States military by
serving a "thank you" dinner
buffet and beverage, from 5-9
p.m., in its sixth annual system
-wide Military Appreciation
Monday event.
The cumulative results .from
the five-year history of Military
Appreciation Monday are,
impressive: 1,230,960 members
of the military have enjoyed
complimentary dinners at the
restaurants. The resulting good-
will has reinforced guest loyal-
ty and further strengthened
bonds with local Disabled


American Veterans chapters
and numerous military installa-
tions.
. A total of $11,078,640 worth
of meals was donated in five
years from Golden Corrals
nationwide.
Gary Sinise will once again
be 'the spokesperson for
Military Appreciation Monday.
In 2005, more than $365..000
was raised through commit-,
ments to this worthy event.
Every penny of these contribu-
tions is put to good use for local
and state DAV needs. As a non-
profit organization, the DAV is
dedicated to one, single pur-
pose: building better lives for
America's disabled veterans
and their families.

SEBRING Peggy Davis,
wife of Democratic gubernato-
rial candidate Jim Davis, spoke
about her husband's campaign
Thursday morning at the
Democratic Party headquarters
in Sebring.
A crowd of 31 people,
including State Representative
candidate Zane Thomas and
former school board candidate
Chet Brojek, were in atten-
dance.
Recent polling has shown
Republican candidate Charlie
Crist's once-sizable lead is nar-
rowing, and Monday's second
debate is believed to have
helped Davis even more. Peggy
Davis echoed those sentiments,-
crediting her husband's issues-
oriented campaign for the tight-
ening race.
"Momentum is growing,"
she said. "The gap is closing
because of Jim's stands on the
issues."
Davis touted her husband's
plans for property taxes and
education, but mostly she
talked about her husband's per-
sonal qualities and the cam-
paign he's running.
"It's a campaign for all
Floridians," she said. "When

and a pre-apprenticeship con-
struction training certificate.
"Being a contractor, I realize
that there's a lack of help out
there," said Vince DaPonte, one
of the course's instructors.
Larry Connell, the other
instructor, added the caveat,
"Good help.".
Together, they bring 72 years
of construction experience from
Nex\ York Can to Florida into
the hands-on, on-the-job
reBuilds learning environment..
The skills they teach are
basic, they said, but there's
more they're trying to impart on
their 21 students who's ages
range from 18 to 63.
"We're showing them how to
show up on the job," DaPonte
said. "Showing them how to
give the boss. a good day's
work, to learn how to keep your


job."
DaPonte said educational
and market forces shifted the
emphasis from blue collar to
white collar jobs, but with
Florida's current growth spurt
construction jobs are com-
manding more pa\.
"Plus," he added. "Working
your hands gives ou a lot of
satisfaction. It's a stress reliev-
er."
Connell noted that the work's
by no means easy, and the heat
takes it toll.
"Once they get into this. theN
realize there's niore to this than
they think," he said, explaining
that construction requires the
ability to calculate big numbers
as well as the abihir to lift

learn about the state."
She also mentioned his 93
percent voting record in the
House, a response to Repub-
lican campaign ads criticizing
her husband's attendance.
"He (Jim Davis) kept a lot of
bad stuff from happening," she
said. "He's a very fair-minded
person."
Peggy Davis talked briefly
about the rigors of a statewide
campaign. Her Thursday sched-
ule alone included stops in
Okeechobee, LaBelle, Moore
Haven, and Naples after her


Sebring appearance. -
Davis also criticized Crist
and current Republican
Governor Jeb Bush, sa3 ing the)
had increased the tax burden on
cities in Florida. "TheN 're play-
ing a lot of games."
She mentioned the hot-but-
ton issue of homeowners insur-
ance as well, citing the $5 mil-.
lion Crist had received in cam-
paign contributions from iisur-
ance companies as evidence
that he's beholden to the insur-
ance industry.
"We can do better than we're

Mahoney, Negron square off for first time at Realtors forum


By MATT MURPHY
News-Sun
Republican Joe Negron and
Democrat Tim Mahoney,
locked in a tight battle in the
race for the 16th Congressional
District seat, met in a public
forum for the first time last
week.
And both men made up for
lost time.
Each candidate was present-
ed a list of questions from the
Board of Realtors, who held the
public forum (which was also
attended by the five county
commission candidates and
State Representative candidate
Zane Thomas).
But neither Negron nor
Mahoney spent much time on
the prepared questions. Instead,
they focused their attentions on
each other.
Mahoney, who owns proper-
ty in Venus, said he's running
because he wants "every child
to live the American dream." he
said he wants an American that
is "more secure, more moral."
He said his 20-year-old
daughter doesn't have the same
opportunities as he had at that'
age, and said Florida families
"can do better" than the current
Republican-led government.
"You'll know I represent
your values," Mahoney said,

"not Washington values."
Negron responded by saying
he thinks his children have
more opportunities now, and he
touted the state's low unem-
ployment numbers as proof.
Negron, who was endorsed by
the Board of Realtors, said the
government has "a taxing prob-
lem, not a spending problem."
Negron said his legislative
experience in the state
Legislature over the past six
years makes him a better candi-
date, as does his fiscal conser-
vatism. He warned the crowd
that a Mahoney victory could
mean Republicans lose control
of Congress.
"This race has national impli-
cations," he said. "It's a toss-up
race that is being closely moni-
tored."
Mahoney said six years of
GOP control, both state and
national, had not benefited the
people of Florida. As a self-
described "conservative
Democrat," Mahoney said he
would work with people from
all parties if he was elected.
"What's changing is that
Democrats are the party of fis-
cal responsibility," he said. "I'll
make sure the values of
Highlands County are reflected.
I'll work with anyone."
Negron responded by saying


he didn't think Floridians
should look to the government
to solve their problems. He
accused Mahoney of being full
of "doom and gloom."
"The answers to our prob-
lems don't lie in Tallahassee
and D.C.," he said. "They lie in
small communities."
Negron touted his work with
Gov. Jeb Bush and State
Representative Denise
Grimsley in Tallahassee, and he
said this experience made him
the better candidate for
Congress.
In his closing remarks,
Mahoney said the candidates
were engaging in a "spirited
debate. Both of us have the
interests of Florida and
Highlands County at heart."
Mahoney said his experience
as an independent businessman
(he worked in the computing
and financial services industry
for 25 years) would be an asset-
to him in Congress.
"I don't have to read a report
to understand what happens."
he said. "I have liked the
American dream."
Mahoney closed by saying
the race was "a referendum on
stay the course versus change.
If the president is right, I'll sup-
port him. V hen he's wrong I'll
tell him what I think. Iv' don't be

a rubber stamp."
Negron closed by contrasting
his style to Mahoney's, saying
he wasn't as "flashy" as his
Democratic opponent.
"I'm a worker, a listmaker,"
Negron' said. "I'm not going to
make flashy promises."
Negron said he was chosen to
run in Foley's place because
"we ought to have a contested
election."
He said he believes in "lower
taxes, less government, and less
spending. Genius comes from
our communities."
On the questions asked by*
the Board of Realtors:
Both candidates opposed
letting banks sell and manage
real estate, which is also the
position of the National
Association of Realtors.
Both Mahoney and Negron
support allowing the creation of
small business health plans by
professional or trade associa-


tions. Both men cited the ever-
rising cost of health care and
both said any effort to bring the
costs down needs to be looked
at.
Negron opposed the cur-
rent 15 percent capital gains tax
rate reverting back to 20 per-
cent in 2009. Mahoney support-
ed it, but said it should be
deferred.
Both oppose using the
power of eminent domain for
building private developments.
Mahoney called current uses of
eminent domain "an overreach
by the federal government" and
Negron agreed. Negron, how-
ever, said he had actually
worked to fight what he termed
the "socialistic" practice of
eminent domain while serving
in Tallahassee.
A Both men supported the
development of a federal natu-
ral disaster insurance backstop
to alleviate insurance costs for

Floridians. Negron said citizens
of Florida pay a disproportion-
ate amount for natural disaster
relief, considering they also pay
for earthquakes, mudslides,
floods and other natural disas-
ters in other places.
Mahoney agreed, saying the
needs of Floridians after natural
disasters need to be addressed
on both the state and national
level.
"Nobody should face finan-
cial ruin from natural catastro--
phes," he said.
The 16th District seat, which
was a safe Republican seat until
Mark Foley's resignation,is
now up for grabs, and Mahoney
has a slight lead in the most
recent polls. For the Democrats,
who are trying to take back the
House of Representatives, a win
in the conservative 16th District
would be a major pickup.
The general election is
Tuesday. Early voting has
already begun.

Past the dotted line
Anyone who steps forward to run for public office
deserves our respect.
We thank all the candidates for the Avon Park City
Council for their dedication and engagement.
But the issues facing the city, and the complexity of
some of the solutions, require careful thought.
It is no longer enough, for example, to simply say one
supports business in the city. City officials are going to
have to take action as well.
To be blunt, an Avon Park renaissance has been long in
coming.
There are many reasons for this. Monday night an
example of one occurred during the council's meeting. :
Mary Lou Marines, who has formed a non-profit activ-
ities club for senior singles, asked for a refund from a
dance her club had held at the city's communiity center.
The core of her complaint was that she had felt forced
into predicting a larger turnout than actually) material-
ized. The larger prediction had meant her club paid a
higher fee.
In fact, 42 people attended the dance when she had
thought more than 100 might attend. Marines hoped to
recover at least some of the difference.
While George Hall moved to provide a partial refund,
Brenda Gray, a retired army sergeant and current proba--
tion officer, refused to second the motion. With council-


man Doug Eason away, there was no on

Republican Ray Lahood of
Illinois wants the Congressional
Page Program to be suspended,
to avoid other impressionable
students from being "exposed
to people with low moral and
ethical problems."
His call came as a result of
the recent, highly publicized
scandal concerning former
Congressman Mark Foley's
predatory interest in young
male pages and his relentless
pursuit of a former page.
Washington law makers are
held in high moral and ethical
standards. The bad choices of a
few should not determine the
program's future.
Why close the program due
to the indiscretion of :a few?
There are no calls for the clos-
ing of schools due to vandal-
ism,. threats and massacre of
young children. There are no
.calls for schools to be closed
because teachers are being
arrested for sexual indiscretion.
English teacher Rachel Holt,
34, ,was arrested in Dela"ware


for having sex with a 13-year-
old student. Amber Jefinings,
32, received, two years proba-
tion in Massachusetts for hav-
ing sex with a 16-year-old male
student. Debra LaFa' e pleaded
guilty to having sex %%ith a 14-
year-old male student in
Florida: Kevin Ponis. 36, of
Colorado. \\as sentenced to 11
Sears to life in prison for ha\ ing
sex \with a 17-Near-old student:
28-Near-old Daniel Zdrodows-
ki, band teacher in Florida,
admitted to having a sexual


relationship with a student. He
is awaiting sentencing.
Who can forget Mary Kay
Letoumeau who went to prison,
and bore children for her 13-
year-old student. Upon release
from prison, she married her .
former student.
There are no calls for the clo-
sure of churches due to the
pedophile behavior of those
who claimed to serve God. Nor
are there calls for church to. be
revamped due to angry intrud-
ers who storm the holy sanctu-
ary and commit murder. .
There is no public out cry for
bars to be closed when .high
school teenagers .and college
students die from alcohol poi-.
soning. There are no calls for
bars to be closed when drunk
drivers use their vehicles as
weapons to erase- the lives of.
others.
\\ hN should 'our children be
denied the opportunity and the
experience of %working among
our country's law makers,. due.
to the indiscretion ofafe" who


have a sexual appetite for
young children?
The perpetrators if found
guilty, they should be punished,
but the Page Program should
not be aborted. However, there
should be stricter measures in
place to protect and monitor
these students.
As a nation we need to pray
for our leaders that they may
overcome any challenges they
may harbor by the renewing of
their minds, as they combine
intelligence to effectively serve
our nation.
Have you prayed for our
leaders recently?

Editor:
Who are these people who

nation? When you look into the
faces of the people wearing the
uniforms of the Armed Forces
you do not see one religious


faction, one ethnicity\ or e\en
one political \ie\ [In this
nation's Armed Forces -ou see
the diversity of our population.
You see black. w\hire. Asian and

shame. They do not honor their
deaths with talk of a failed war,
they belittle them. The least the
people on' the sidelines of this
war can do is 'stand behind
those who serve.
Veterans Day is approaching
and what better avenue do we
possess to honor the veterans of
the past and the growing num-
ber of veterans this war is pro-

loved ones, but one in particu-
lar resonates for me.
A patient nearing the end of
her life requested that she be
allowed to die at home, sur-
rounded by her beloved dogs.
However, her home was hun-
dreds of miles away, out of our
service area. Partnering with
communities, institutions and
individuals, we honored her
request. To the world she may
have been just one person, but
to us she was the world.
In November, the nation rec-
ognizes National Hospice and
Palliative Care Month. Rather
than being honored with com-
memorative events and stirring
words, Good Shepherd has one
simple request That people
everywhere take a few
moments to tell their loved-
ones their end-of-life wishes.
This will allow Good Shepherd
the opportunity to help those
facing life-limiting illnesses
succeed in living their lives to
the fullest while supporting
their needs and wishes.

November is

Hospice Month
Editor:
Someone once said to me,
"If anyone I know is ever in the
final stages of life, I'll tell them
about Hope Hospice." I
reminded her that the end of
life is never a matter of "if." At.
Hope Hospice, we've seen that
people often don't know a great
deal about accessing end-of-
life care, and, as you might
expect, many don't want to


think about it.
A study conducted for the
National Hospice Foundation
found that Americans are more
likely to talk to their children
about drugs and sex than to talk
to their elderly parents about
life-limiting illness. Although
Americans may expect quality
care in the final stages of life,
many are too uncomfortable
about the subject to even dis-
cuss it with their closest family
members.
Lack of communication on
this subject leaves people
unprepared for the physical and
emotional strains caused by
life-limiting illness, but there
are choices in end-of-life care,
and through frank, open com-
munication, families can plan
to spend their final time togeth-
er focusing on the positive
qualities of life.
November is National
Hospice Month, a special time
and opportunity to learn more
about care and services. Hope
Hospice services are offered to
everyone, of all ages, from all
walks of life. Services are cov-
ered by Medicare, Medicaid
and many insurances. We pro-
vide these services regardless
of a patient's ability to pay.
What does Hope Hospice.
have to offer that can really
help? How does Hope make a
difference? Hope Hospice care
provides patients and their fam-
ilies with; the things they truly
need at this difficult and critical
time. We start by embracing the
individual as a person, not the
"patient" that the health care
system may try to make them.
Hope Hospice's care includes.
emotional and spiritual support
for the person and the family,
pain control tailored to the per-
son's wishes, and the choice for
the person to spend their time
wherever they call home.
Hospice is a concept of care


that treats the person, not the
disease, and emphasizes the
quality of life. The Hope
Hospice team of caregivers
works with patients and their
families to develop individual-
ized plans of care that are
designed to ease the patient's
physical and emotional pain.
Hope Hospice caregivers pro-
.vide emotional support to the
patient and their family during
the most difficult time of their
lives so that they can "put their
lives in order" and make the
last stage in life even more
meaningful.
Hope Hospice providers are
dedicated to the notion that the
end of life should be lived fully
and peacefully with the support
of friends and family. Hope
Hospice provides all of the
things that our patients need
most: freedom from pain, emo-
tional and spiritual support, and
the ability to control the direc-
tion of their own care.
Only by embracing the
importance of discussing the
final stage of life decisions can
we improve care for people at
the end of life. Families must
be encouraged to freely discuss
the type of care they would like
to receive during a life-limiting
illness because choices do
exist. As the concept of Hope
Hospice proves, people do not
need to live out their lives in
pain or in fear. Only by dis-
cussing and learning about our
choices can we truly receive
the type of care we need and.
want.

ww;.ho.peli,_piht L.orI., or call
382-0312 or (800) 835-1673.

Playing it safe

, Several years ago in
another state, two friends of
mine had encounters of the
unfriendly kind within two
weeks of each other. Over
the follow ing months, I
learned many things about
personal safety.
MNI friend went to a mall
to pa; a bill. When she w\as
getting out of her car. she
noticed a group of young
Men \erballk harassing a
senior-aged lads Nt\ friend
\went into the store. paid hei
bill. stepped outside the
store and then committed a
classic error she put her
head dow n while v.alking to
her car. By the time she
reached her car. the group
had moved in on her.
My friend \\as 'en fortu-
nate. Her perpetrator did not
expect her to defend herself.
When her self-preser\ation
instinct finally kicked in.
she %as able to take him to
the ground and sit on him
until security\ arried and
arrested him. His cohorts in
crime slunk awa\ unde-
tained.
The other friend \ as not
so fortunate. On paidaN. she
went to her car after work
and \%as accosted by a large
man. She %tas a soccer ref-
eree. meaning she w\as in
excellent phy sical condi-
tion. She did not cooperate
with his request for her
purse. We had direct deposit
and. in this case. the perpe-
trator didn't get an\ money.
Ironicall\. she \\as severely
injured for no gain. She
resisted his attempted thie\ -
cry until he pulled a pistol
on her. By that time. lie \as
enraged and beat her w ith
the gun.
For the rest of us. our
employer brought in a sher-
iff's deputy \ho talked
straight \ ith us about per-
sonal safety. I took my per-
sonal safety education a
step farther and attended an
all-day interactive workshop
on personal safety presented
by the local AWA\RE pro-
gram lu'l w '.aiiare.org I.
learned man\ skills to pre-
\ent unwanted threats to in
safety. What I also learned
and forget is to practice
those skills. \\ hen \ou ha'e
a practiced aw areness oft
personal safety. you hate
far less chance of becoming
a victim "A 21-year old
woman has a one in four
chance of experiencing a
\ violent crime in her life."
according to the AWARE
\\eb site. "Remember. the
point is that it is important
to resist strongly and earl\
in the interaction, not to go
along i in a \an. for exa\nim-
pler, hoping that the situa-
tion will somehow get bet-
ter later on."
Speaking of safety\ -

tacts attached to your

constructs demented games for

some challenges are overcome
and the game is won can the

these games as "life lessons",
for those who don't appreciate
their advantages, is terminally
ill and has access to an unlimit-

of medical equipment and

tage outlining the bits and
pieces we weren't privy to or
might've missed. Both "Saw"
and "Saw 2" hit hard and fast
with the finale, and "Saw 2"
turns itself on its ear with sever-
al connections to the first film
that are shockingly unpre-
dictable. ,
"Saw. 3" desperately and vis-
ibly works for this same reac-
tion. We know there are going
to be aspects of the 'story
revealed to us in the ending that
we didn't see coming, so as the
audience we closely inspect
every shadow and clue for
something we may need later.
"Saw 3" fails to catch us nap-
ping like the first two movies,
so to make up for this lack of
narrative create ity. it pours on
the gore. :
There is more gratuitous,
vomit-inducing detail in this
mo\ ie than an) in recent mem-
ory, so keep your mouth cov-
ered. Like "Hannibal" to
"Silence of the Lambs," there's
no way to out-do the predeces-
sor, so we zoom in on brain sur-
gery, body parts and pig guts.
Gross.
There are two parallel stories
and, therefore, games. One fol-
lows a grieving father forced to
navigate a labyrinth of tortured
role-players in his son's untime-
ly death. The other stays
focused on Jigsaw who remains


on his deathbed. With the help
of his apprentice Amanda
(Shawnee Smith), Jigsaw forces
a young doctor, to use all her
medical powers to keep him
alive. The doctor, Lynn ( Bahar
Soomekh), is fitted with a
hideous shotgun-collar that is
connected to the patient's heart
monitor. If Jigsaw's heart rate
stops you get the idea.
Fans of the series will proba-.
bly find this installment enter-
taining and can look forward to
the unavoidable fourth film
positioned neatly at the end of
"Saw 3." I found myself irritat-
ed and nauseous. Irritated
because the film's resolution is
a blatant rip-off of one of my
favorite film's, "Seven," and
nauseous for obvious reasons. I
can take the blood and guts
(after all, I am a horror fan), just
give me a better reason not to
turn away.

This week members will look at
Article 14 which is about "The
Local Church."
Article 14 reads as follows:
"We believe that a local Church
is a congregation of Baptized
Believers, equal in rank and,
pri\ ilege. subject to the Word of
God, and independent of an\
external ecclesiastical control
whatsoever; associated by a
covenant of faith and fellow-
ship of the Gospel, observing
the ordinances of Christ; gov-
erned by His laws and exercis-
ing the rights and privileges
invested in them b \ His Word;
that the true mission of the
Church is the faithful witness-
ing of Christ to all men as we
have opportunity. We hold that
the local church has absolute
right over any hierarchy of indi-
viduals or organizations, and
that the one and only superin-
tendent is Christ, through -the
Holy Spirit. On all matters of
membership, policN. govern-
ment. discipline, and benevo-
lence the will of the local
Church is final." Some of the
supporting Scriptures are: Acts
.2: 41-42; Acts 15:13-18; Acts
20:17-18; 1 Corinthians 11:2;
Ephesians 5:23-24.
Now if-anyone did iot under-
stand the previous paragraph,
then' the\ are in, ited. to come
arid hear Lambert share on the
topic of the local church.
Lambert will also be sharing
some important personal infor-
mation that will: effect the local
church.
The) worship service is inter-
preted into sign language with a
special section 'reserved
front, left i for those who bene-
fit from this serm ice.
A children's story ill be told
from the platform and a "quiet
bag" is available for the little
ones during the sermon.

disappointed in the effort we got out

their original form into the high-performance vehicless

helped his son virtuallyy everN step of the %wa. likens
the process to building a race car.
"Some of the bikes hae had over $15,000 worth of
modifications." Charles NMcKibben said.
The first step after the stock bike is purchased is to
send the motor off to a professional., where the
mechanic dill rebuild it from the ground up. Pistons.
cams. a modified crank and a bigger carburetor are
just a few of the changes made to increase the per-
formance of the bike. The rules are relatively lax
w hen it comes to altering the bike. aside from keeping
it under the 450 cc limit. \\ith the bikes as souped-up
up as they are, the skill of the driver becomes para-
mount.
"The tracks are made of a clay compound." said
Charles. "If it gets too %\et, it's too slick. If it gets

too dry. it's too slick. There's a happy medium
called 'blue groove.' where it's just right and the
tires are like suction cups. You can take a curve at
60 mph and the bike % ill just sit there."
It has helped that those close to Case\ ha\e been
supporive in his passion for the sport. His fami-

the dangers inherent to the sport. Earlier in the
year at Gatorback Cycle Park in Gaines, ille.

ATV and was crushed by another bike.
"It's a ver> family oriented sport." said
Charles. "You'll see entire families at these

Coach Speak
Jared Hamlin: "There's a lot of

That's a big motivation., and lust to
win a ball game: you never want to
lose We took Tuesday otf, so we
haven't had a lot ot time to prepare.
but I think when we get up there,
we'll be all right ... I really don't
know a whole lot about (Bradford).
Last year, they were pretty physical.
They played hard.They run the wing-
T ohensively. Defensively. from what
I can gather, they run a lot of man
coverage. We didn't even swap tilms
with them, so I don't know a lot

e- -._ After 20 years with Dyson, Weaver retires from racing on top


James Weaver's orange gloves were a trademark for o'er 20 )ears.


On the weekend that Formula 1 lost its
finest driver so did sports car racing. And
like Michael Schumacher. James W\easer
went out on top.
Weaver's last race "as the season-ending
Monterey Sports Car Championships at
Mazda Racewa. Laguna Seca on Oct. 21.
Each time he brought the car into the
Laguna pits, it was'from the lead. At Petit
Le Mans powered b) Mazda CX-7, he set
fastest lap. He finished second in the
American Le Mans Series PI class champi-
onship.
"One of the hardest decisions for an\
sportsman is knowing when it is time to
lease the playing field E\penence holds
\ou in good stead. but eventually time tips


the scales against \ou." \\ea\er said of his
retirement. "I ha\e been racing for oser 30
\ears and 20 of those \ith Rob Dyson. It
has been an enormous pri ilege to knows\
him and to be part of his team. No driver
could ask for a better en\ ironment in which
to enjoy the sport.
"I ",as able to do \%hat I loed doing -
ho 1I liked doing it. It %%as brilliant fun to
be able to be a part of a sport-I lose and
\erN unusual to be able to do it on my terms
- all of which I ha\e Rob to thank for"
Weaker left the sport as he liBed, not
wanting any fanfare or attention. The focus
"as always on the team. not himself. He
told the team of his retirement after the race
",as finished and thanked the emotional
gathering for all of his success.


Helmet tilted forward and trademark
orange gloves a blur of commitment.
Weaker "as brilliantly( fast on the track. He
%\as an implacable competitor and relent-
less in finding %%as to improve the car.
He \%as one of the best set-up drivers in
the business Long after other drivers had
retired to their hotels, he was at the track
pouring oer data to find more speed.
"It is impossible to quantify how much
James has meant to us over the years."
teammate Chris Dyson said.
"James %%as there for all of our important
victories and championships and he %'as the
leading force behind the team for the past
20 years. James has stuck with us through
thick and thin and he has had unflagging
commitment to the family and to the team."

"When we didn't make it
Monday, I wanted them to have
another game, so I started
working on it Tuesday," he
said. "This worked out pretty
good. I thought it would be bet-
ter than playing a team from
around here."
The players like the idea, too.
"They don't want the season
to end," Hamliri said. "They
couldn't believe we were play-
ing a team from New York. It's
going to be fun."
