Venus laborer gets four



years for manslaughter


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING The Project
Harvest Food Bank Program
may appear similar to a Biblical
story about bountiful fish and
bread.
But, Lynn McCray is no mir-
acle worker and is appealing to
the community to continue its
support of the program.
She and husband Gary
McCray began the food bank
six years ago, giving bread to.
needy families in Highlands
and Hardee counties.
"That's when I realized just
how serious the hunger prob-
lem is right here," Lynn
McCray said. '"People would
literally wait in line for bread."


The program almost faltered
last year as the first anniversary
of Gary McCray's death
approached. The pastor died
Thanksgiving day 2004, after
contracting an illness during a
hospital stay, she said.
But, with encouragement
from a friend she persevered
with the drive in her husband's
honor and gave food to 300
families.
She bu)s boxes "with every-
thing in (them) to feed a family
of eight," for $25 each. Which,
is only possible with the help of
store manager Don Clay.
Donations can be made at
Albertson's. in Sebring via
check or credit card earmarked
to "Project Harvest." .McCray


will go to those who can't get to
the store to make donations.
The money needs to be in by
Nov. 20 and she'll distribute the
food Nov. 21 from three
Highlands County locations
and one in Hardee Avon
Park, Lake Placid, Sebring and
Wauchula.
Specific times and locations
will be in the Ne\ws-Sun later.
McCraN asked for volunteers
to help retrieve and distribute
the food. She can be reached at
382-'008.
"It started with just bread,"
McCray said, explaining that
she hopes to not have to turn
anybody away forr lack of
enough food.


Lots to find at Harvest Home Craft Festival


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Two dozen
people attended the sentencing
of Mark Shaffer's killer on
Monday.
Gerado Lopez Morales, 23,
of Lake Placid, pleaded guilty
to manslaughter while driving
under the influence of alcohol
and to driving without a-valid
license.
He was sentenced to serve
four years in prison followed by
11 years probation, court
records showed. He'll receive
credit for time served in the
county jail pending since his
October 2005 arrest.
"I don't want anyone to think
four years in prison is enough,"
assistant state attorney Richard
Castillo said, explaining that he
was limited in the extent of
- punishment he could request.
"No one is happy with the
result. A decision was made and
we have to stand by it."


Morales allegedly admitted
to drinking 1 1/2 Corona beers
before hitting motorcycle-
bound Shaffer, 36, of Big Pine
Key, with a Ford Explorer, Lake
Placid Police Sgt. Mark J.
Schneider said in a report dated
Oct. 2, 2005, which was
Morales' 22nd birthday.
According to Schneider,
Mexican-born Morales was
unable to provide a driver's
license, Social Security number
or phone number. His occupa-
tion was listed as a laborer with
a Venus nursery.
Consenting to a breath test,
Morales blew a .189 and .191
approximately two hours after
the accident at U.S. 27 and
South Main Avenue in Lake
Placid, records showed.
Neter looking up from hhis
seat at the defense table,
Morales listened to an inter-
preter as members of Heartland
Riders Association and others


spoke on Shaffer's behalf.
L.J. Overfield, Riders chap-
lain, 'said Morales' sentence
was "the result of a deal, not
justice" but noted that, should
the defendant repent, "we too
will have to forgive him."
Elizabeth Sheetz, of the Polk
County chapter of Mothers
Against Drunk Driving, said
Shaffer's death was preventa-
ble, that Morales chose to drive
after drinking.
He pleaded guilty in
December 2004 to driving
without a valid license in an
unregistered vehicle, court
records showed.
Monday's guilty plea includ-
ed $10,000 in fines plus court
costs and fees. He's required to
complete a DLII course within
three years and his license is
suspended for life.

Shutt contributed.

Teachers shares life in Iraq with local students


By TREY CHRISTY
News-Sun
* SEBRING-- "Does anyone
know the five branches of the
military?" asked Brooks Swett,
a soldier of eight years and
kindergarten teacher at..Fred
Wild Elementary School.
Eager hands shot up, but not
every branch is recited.
Eventually Swett reveals to the
students they are the Army,
Navy, Air Force, Marines, and
the one the kids and even a few
teachers were struggling to
identify the Coast Guard.
Swett served a tour of duty in
Iraq and wanted to talk to the
school not only as a teacher but
a veteran as well with Veterans
Day this Saturday and being
observed on Friday with a
parade.
It was almost like an Army
show-and-tell for the kinder-
gartners, with Swett bringing
out various pieces of equipment
and souvenirs from a bag at the
side of the classroom. There
was an altimeter from a plane,
Iraqi flash cards with arabic
writing. on them, a souvenir
Iraqi flag that Swett bought to
commemorate her trip, a gas
mask and even clothing indige-
nous to the area.
"This is what a boy in Iraq
would wear," Swett said.
Before the kids could laugh she
continued, explaining that it
may look like a dress but it is
not. "It's 120 degrees over
there, and that's in the shade -
it's even hotter in the sun!" she
emphasized.
Being open like it is, the
Disha Dasha allows air to flow
around the wearer's body and
keep him cool, and has long
sleeves to keep the wearer from
being sunburned.
Soldiers in Iraq carry many
pieces of gear, and one item
that is highly important is the
gas mask. So important that it
always had to be close by.
"If I was sleeping, this was
right next to my bed. If I was in
the shower, it was within an


arm's reach," Swett said of her
gas mask.
One time a sulfur fire burned
out of control near where she
was stationed, so Swett had to
wear the mask for four days
straight, sleeping in it, talking
over the radio with it on, and
only taking it off very briefly to
get a mouthful of food then
quickly replacing it to chew.
Some of the most pleasant
memories Swett has of Iraq are
of the Iraqi children. She said in
her presentation to students that
her interaction with the local
kids contributed to her drive to
become a teacher, but another
reason lies in her history.
"Being with the kids over
there was wonderful, but also a
lot of my family is involved in
school principals and teach-
ers," she said.
Swett has been in the United
States Army for the last eight
years, serving a tour in Bosnia
and her latest ending in 2004,
after 11 months in Iraq.

Artist Shelley Schoenherr wins five awards


Special to the News-Sun
One of the requirements
for artists represented by the
LK Artworks Gallery is to
have been in juried shows and
won awards for the art.
Shelley Schoenherr has
been the most award-winning
gallery artist with five awards
in the past four months.
Schoenherr's favorite medi-
um is oil pastel. "The use of
charcoal paper or brown paper
allows me to build and urge
images to spring forth from


darkness, and into theatrical
light. Often I scumble layer
upon layer of different colors
to produce color depths, much
like an oil painter uses the
classical glazing process," she
said.
Awards won are: Honorable
Mention. Oil Pastel Society
member exhibit, 2006 for
Rosie's Gaze; First Place
Viewers' Choice Award, Oil
Pastel Society Member
Exhibit for Rosie's Gaze;
Third Place Professional


Drawing, Michigan State Fair
Fine Art Competition, Rosie's
Gaze; Honorable. Mention,
Lac Ste. Claire Fine Art Fair,
for entire body of. work pre-
sented; and Best In Show,

The LK Artworks Gallery,

"Those kinds of efforts result
in these kinds of results," EJ.
Picolo, special agent in charge
of the Fort Myers region of the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, said. .
Several of the suspects have
prior drug convictions in other
communities, said Anthony
Cooper, regional agent in
charge of the Drug
Enforcement Agency's Port St.
Lucie office.
"It reaches outside state
lines," he said during a press
conference held at the sheriff's
office, when asked the extent of
the operation.
Larry Long, Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement public informa-
tion officer, said some of the 13
are related.
Most of the suspects list
Cuba as their birthplace, nine


are listed as Cuban citizens.
"I don't know specifically
which ones are family mem-
bers," Long said. "We're still
trying to figure out who's who
and how they're connected. ...
We'll be working with ICE
(Immigration and Customs
Enforcement), letting them .be
aware of what took place."
It's up to Immigration and
Customs Enforcement to deter-
mine whether any of the sus-
pects are illegally in the coun-
try, Long said, explaining that
their status shouldn't have any
bearing on prosecution.
The U.S. Attorney's office in
Fort Pierce is reviewing the
case to determine whether fed-
eral indictments are levied.
Each suspect is being held on
$500,000 bond at the county
jail. They are: Armband Jesus
Portz, 57, of Sebring; Victor
Gonzalez Hernandez, 55, of
Miami; Nelson Diaz Melendez,
44, of Miami;
Niurka Gutierrez, 38, of


Sebring; Ridel Gil, 37, of
Sebring; Ricardo Gutierrez, 35,
of Sebring; Yosvel Gonzalez
Broche, 32, of Sebring; Inakis
Lopez, 30, of Sebring;
Daniel Isaac Moreno, 25, of
Sebring; Yannatti Bermudez,
who celebrated her 23rd birth-
day Tuesday, of Sebring;
Yoandri Quintana, 22, of
Sebring; and Yesenia Gonzalez,
19, of Miami.
Their methods were
described as "elaborate" and
they are suspected of stealing
electricity and water to cultivate
their crops with high-powered
heating lamps and specialized
cooling systems.


Each plant those seized
Wednesday ranged from four
inches to six feet tall pro-
duces a pound of marijuana
worth $4,000 on the street.
"It's a huge dent in this area,"
Cooper said, explaining 65 such
grow operations have been
exposed since May in his
region.
More arrests are expected,
but officials wouldn't discuss
the depth of their investigation.
Two handguns and two long
guns were among the property
confiscated and cocaine residue
was noted at one location.
Warrants were served in
Avon Park, Lorida and Sebring.

Portrait of Paul Gustat unveiled before large

crowd in Sebring High School band room


By ELIZABETH WALKER
SEBRING
S ki Gustat unveiled a
portrait of her hus-
band, Paul. in the
Sebring High School
band room for a capacity
crowd of enthusiastic fans
recently.
Gustat. follow ing the leader-
ship of his father, began direct-
ing the high school band in
1948. After a brief sabbatical.
he returned in 1950 to continue
the high-class triple A notoriety
rating of a Class C school that
his father had created.
Fans and former students
heartedly agreed that w herever
high school bands, sy mphonic
orchestras or Sebring was men-
tioned in a music situation, the
name Gustat quickly emerged
all across the nation.


The recent unveiling began
Sixth a number w hose dialogue
\ as ne\w li created by Ruth
Still, former SHS band student.
Dr. Robert Fritz led at the
piano, Shtrle\ Wallace Crew
played trumpet, and Peter
Cline played the French horn.
David Aquilla. class of
2006., played a trumpet concer-
to. Young Aquilla has studied
\with Still for several sears and
plans a career in music.
Gustat acknowledged the
honor w as "-over\ helming." As
he scanned the "filled chairs"
and standing fans, he quietly
murmured. "No%\ all I need is
a baton." In one fast motion, he
tripped the baton handed to
him and thrust it skyward, as if
to direct a creshendo from a
band and he did.
The response \\as thunder-
ous applause accompanied by

Sebring High School band room was filled "ith former SHS band
members and friends for the unveiling of a portrait of the former

laughter in a multitude of
tones.
The program to honor the
Gustat family \\ as created and
produced b\ Fritz. a former
band student of the Gustats.
The idea began \\ h a \ visit
to the Sebring High School
band room. He \was stunned b.\
the condition of Professor
Peter J. Gustat's portrait.
He acquired permission to
restore and reframe the por-
trait. During the process it
occurred to him that a similar
portrait of former band director
Paul Gustat would be fitting to
complement his dad's.
Immediately, he set the plan
in motion w% ith friends and for-
mer band students who had
become professional musi-
cians.
They donated the new and
restored portraits as a gift from


the Sebring High School Band
Alumni to hang in the band
room.
Fritz has enjoyed a success-
ful career in music and recently
retired to his roots in Sebnng.
but retirement %was not really in
his grasp.
As president of the Sebring
Historical Society. he has
spurred ne\ energy and
progress in the club and com-
munirM.
He proposed an organization
to fund scholarships for band
students. This rmeht include
special music training for \\or-
th\ Indi\ iduals. band camp and


continuing education, etc.
Fritz said. "The foundation
could promote and under rite
musical events in the commu-
nity. Indi\ iduals or groups
often cannot purchase needed
equipment.
"We also need a performing
space in Sebring. The founda-
tion wouldd operate as a non-
profit organization under the
law\ s of Florida and Internal
Re enue Ser ice regulations:
The Peter J. and Paul J. Gustat
Foundation for the Performine
Arts!"

Should we trust

Democrats?
Editor:
For ,,50-plus years the
Democrats ha'e promoted.
condoned and .financed homo-
sexual, lesbian, bi-sexual,
pedophile and transsexual life-
styles. They promoted and sup-
ported abortion and choice.
which is a "nice" way of say-
ing, "killing babies."
Representative Nancy
Pelousi iD-Calif." recently'
marched in a San Francisco
parade of the "North American
Man Boy Love Association,"
which promotes set by men
with boys. The Hallmark of the
Democrats is support for devi-
ate sex life and slaughtering
innocent babies. Democrats are
against death terrorist and for
killers on death row.
Mark Foley %as just try ing to
act like a democrat. Local
Democrats wrote of the Foley
"Horror" but forgot the Gerry,
Studds-Page trip to Portugal
and Barney Frank, (D-Mass.)
male brothel being operated in
his congress office. What Foley
did was wrong.andterrible but
not in the eyes of the
Democrats. If Foley would
switch to the Democrats and
move to Massachusetts, he
would fit in with the "gay-mar-
riage" state.
We hear that Democrats do
not have any ideas and that we
don't know what they believe.

Rangel, (D-N.Y.) said taxes
would be raised. Murtha (D-
Pa.) wants to cut and run and
surrender to the terrorist. Look,
at the face of the Democrats.
Michael Moore, Jimmy (I never
met a dictator I didn't like)
Carter, Howard Dean, Barbara
Striesand, Ted Kennedy,
Barney Frank, John Kerry, oh
well you know who. the friends
of the terrorists, baby killers
and homosexuals are. Will you
trust them to defend our coun-

City should

review practices
Editor:
A statement \was made that
the A\on Park Airport only
sho%\s a deficient because, of
the depreciation concept, but
that statement is not 100 per-
cent accurate. Basically the air-
port sho%\s anything the city
provides as a local match as
revenue, which h basically is say-
ing this is a grant from the city.
This is basically a bad prac-
tice. What should happen is
that the city should run that
money as a loan on the books
of the airport and repay it back
to the city coffers. This is
money that can be used for
streets and sidewalks, depend-
ing on where the money came
from out of the budget.
In addition to the airport
financial review, a review of
the classic caladium building
needs to be completed also.
Basically the city pays for
the maintenance,. loading
docks, etc. for the building and
it collects the monthly lease,
but if you check the financial
from the original lease and
compare money in and out, it
will probably show a deficient.
The airport gets the tax rev-
enue because of being in the
Community Redevelopment
Agency area. If the CRA is
going to get the tax revenue,
then the rental and maintenance
charges should be handled by
the CRLA board. Because, again,
the money put into that build-
ing goes into- the CRA, so the
general fund or infrastructure
fund shouldn't subsidize the

The Green Bean Monster wins in the long run


I hated canned green beans
when I was a kid.
Even as strong a statement as
that is, it doesn't quite illustrate
how I really felt. I was con-
vinced that the things were
planted, canned and served, just
to make my life miserable. As a
double insult, my mother fed
them to us because she was try-
ing to make sure we had the
proper nutrition. But the very
process of canning removes
most of the nutrients, so the
monumental battles we had
over green beans were mostly
for nothing, as I could have
gone out and free grazed in the
back yard and got more vita-
mins.
"There are kids in
Ethiopia/China/Portugal/
Detroit, that would love to have
those green beans, Cynthia
'Jean. You're lucky to have
them, so eat themn" she said'on.
numerous occasions.
I would have been thrilled to
box them up and air mail them
to any of those disadvantaged
kids. and said so. but it got me
now here, so I resorted to hiding
green beans in my socks, mi
pockets or the waist band of my
shorts. The dinner table had a
little lip on the underside of it,
and I made green beans trains
along this little track, which
was a real gamble because if
anybody bumped the table the
green bean "cars" would fall to
the floor ... a catastrophic
derailment that would result in


Where is

Thanksgiving?

Editor:
Seeing the large print title to
an article about "Turkey Day"
rerrmnded me of a concern I've
had for a few years. In the case
of the article, it is about a play
being presented by a school.
However, in the past years,
Channel 8, WFLA, and other
" media are using this term,
"Turkey Day" in place of using.
the proper word,
"Thanksgiving." What we cel-
ebrate is Thanksgiving for our
many blessings, which may or
may not include turkey. We're
thankful for our country, bur
churches and other places of
worship, our communities, our
faniilies,. friends, our great free-
doms (the freedom to vote.
Seen when elections may not
turn out as %we wish: at least we
voted), our health. the many
things in life that money can't
buy! .
The list can go on and on..
For we are blessed beyond
measure. I read of many coun-
tries where Christians are being
persecuted ,and put in prison
and hate even lost their lives
for the sake of the Gospel of
Jesus Christ. So far we are not
persecuted in this manner in the
United States of America.
So please, let's remember it
is Thanksgiving Day, not
turkey day. Let's all give

my being sent to bed early.
Needless to say, if my moth-
er ever succeeded in actually
making me eat them, they were
usually stone cold, which didn't
make them any more palatable,
and one evening as she sat and
watched me eat every single
one of the 10 green beans she
put on my plate, I just knew we
were both going to live to regret
it, and said so.
. "Be that 'as it may, you are
not leaving this table until
they're gone, and that's final."
Her leverage u as the fact that
there were five or six kids sit-
ting on my front porch waiting
to start a kickball game, and she
knew I would do danged near
anything to get out there, so I
did %\hat any kid faced \ith
such a situation would do ... I
,made the supreme sacrifice for
my team mates by swallowing
each one of the repulsi\ e things
whole. .
"Now\, see?" she said as she

collected my plate. "That was-
n't so bad, was it?"
I went out onto the porch
knowing that the other kids had
no way of knowing the evil I
had suffered on their behalf, so
I kept a stiff upper lip and man-
aged to play with my usual fer-
vor, and forgot all about the
green bean ordeal ... up until
about 10 o'clock that night.
Kids' minds work in funny
ways, which is just another way
of saying that as a general rule
they have few thoughts of any
real significance floating
around in their minds at any
given moment, and often fall
victim to self-induced traumas.
Bed times, % hen the house is
quiet and there is nothing to
keep the mind occupied. are the
worst. The Booges man choos-
es such moments to come out of
the closet. and the monsters that
live under the bed a\\aken and
lie % ailing to grab an.,unsus--
pecting ankle. Memories of the
past day tantalize and torment
and return with vibrant bril-
liance in the. nioments before
sleep comes, and more often
than not are the instigation of
untold numbers of mnghtmares.
So it Wasn't much of a surprise
%hen the Green Bean Incident
of earls evening came back to
haunt me \ ith a vengeance.
I was con\.inced that those
green beans were still lying
there in my stomach intact, a
heinous reminder of %k hat I con-
sidered a cold-hearted attempt


at murder by poisoning. The
more I thought about it, the
more vivid the thought became,
and my stomach somehow con-
vinced my mind that something
needed to be done about the sit-
uation.
Right now.
I made it halfway down the
hall before effectively purging
the offending legumes. with
such enthusiasm that half the
house came running to see what
the matter was, only to abandon
me abruptly. All except for
mother, of course, who was
faced with dealing with the sit-
uation, that in my mind, she had
w illful\ and knowingly creat-
ed.
She set her jaw and tended to
business as she always did and
while she didn't say anything
about accepting any blame, I
was never forced to eat green
beans again. .
From that day forward she
focused her attentions on
spinach, and I knew I was sunk,
because I didn't think even,
Harry Houdini could be
expected to hide a gob of gooe\
spinach in a sock or pocket, and
get away with it.

evidenced by the large crowd
who attended. Some who
attended were relishing in
anticipation of the mud sling-
ing. free-for-all. Others who
attended %were voters looking
for a chance to believe there is
hope for our country to change.
The stage as set with plac-
ards bearing the names of the
candidates: Tim Mahoney, Joe
Negron, DOn Bates, J.D.
Barrett, Audrey Vickers, Edgar
Stokes and Conda Ruckman.,
But, no placards for Denise
Grimsley and her Democratic
opponent, Zane Thomas.
My understanding was that
although Thomas was in ited,
his participation in the forum
was thwarted. My understand-
ing is, because Thomas' oppo-
nent chose not to accept the
challenge., in favor of another
commitment, it was said arid
therefore, he could not be a part
of the forum. Apparently
unthwarted, the mild mannered
Zane Thomas walked into the
building.
When. the meeting com-
menced, Thomas, Democratic
candidate for State
Representative District 77, was
called to the stage. In the small
amount of time that was
allowed, the crowd understood
much more about the
Democratic candidate than
Thomas was allowed time to
deliver. (Note: The amount of
time that was offered had
changed from an invitation to
join a three-hour forum, to a
five-minute statement of plat-
form, then to a three-minute
opportunity).


Integrity speaks for itself.
Without one disparaging
remark about his opponent.
Thomas spoke to the issues for
each and every one of us who
love this country: capable'lead-
ership, not just promises and "a
plan." There was a "plan" in,
place when Katrina hit ,New
Orleans, but effectual leader-
ship w as %what was needed.
Without picking, up one
handful of mud to sling at his
opponent. Thomas spoke from
his 25 years of military experi-
ence. "In the military wee bring
together diverse peoples and
mold them into a cohesive team
and solve problems."
The recently retired Lt.
.Commander Thomas spoke
eloquently of reasons for run-
ning for office. "This is not
something that I want to do, it
is something I feel compelled
to do.
"I tucked away a little piece
of America in my heart when I
was deployed overseas. I
returned to these States, only to
find that the America that I had
tucked away, bears little resem-
blance to the America I find
today.
"Most people would argue
that the greatest threat to the
United States is the war in Iraq.
I would argue that the greatest
threat to America comes from
within and that is the erosion of
our core values: honor,
courage, integrity, compassion,
faith and forgiveness. These are
things that used to mean some-
thing, even when not in an.elec-
tion year," said Thomas.
Committed to a physically


strong exhausting campaign
schedule against an incumbent,
the lieutenant commander
spoke %words that reminded.
renewed and refreshed our pur-
pose as leaders of the free
world.
Thomas gave poignant
reminders, "If %%e truly xIant to
change in this country,.we need
to choose leaders who know.
how to unite rather than place
blame. We need to take the
niones out of politics, reform
lobbyists' intolhement and not
tumm a blind eye to special inter-
ests' activity, locally and
nationally."
Thomas had .to leave for an
appearance in Lake Placid soon
after his speaking opportunity
and was not able to witness
much of the forum.
Unfortunately, for those of us
who came to hear actual candi-
dates' platforms, the forum
intermittently escalated into a
finger pointing, maligning,
Mark Foley bashing, "Jerry
Springer" style entertainment.
This morning I awakened to
read the article written by Gary
Pinnell (Highlands Today, Oct.
26). Quote: "Money is an indi-
cator of a candidate's strength."
Indeed, Mr. Pinnell. Zane
Thomas' strength is not in con-
tributions. Zane Thomas'
strength is in his character. As
long as money controls the out-
come of our elections, our
country will remain on this
downward spiral. It's a brave
candidate that is courageous
enough to dare to take on the

Where are the

Christians?

Editor:
Over the course of the past
few decades, Christians have
not just been on the sidelines,
but those who have chosen to
engage the political process
have been left to wander aim-
lessly across a political land-
scape that is both hostile and
lethal. ...
Christians watched as well
over 40 million unborn chil-
dren perished in the name of
personal liberty and the foot-
steps of the founders were
erased by a tidal wave of secu-
larism that crashed upon our
shores.
What has happened to
American politics? How and
when did the light dim on the
nation created to be the shining
city on the hill for the' entire
world to see? Just when did the

downward spiral of our country,
nationally and locally. Thomas'
character and courage gives us
hope.
Re: Article in Highlands
Today, Oct. 24, misquoted
Thomas in a number of ways:
1. Curiously, when Thomas
was at the home owner's asso-
ciation, Oct. 9, it was Thomas
who said, "We absolutely have
to allow our senior citizens to


vices of hedonism triumph over
the virtues of a Judeo-
Christians ethic? How did a
nation that is 80 percent
Christian let this happen? In
other words, where have all the
Christians gone?
Christians, in light of this
torrid tidal wave, have retreated
to the subculture and divided
amongst themselves. Christians
have not remained united in
this cultural battle, but have
resorted to bickering and
infighting they have permit-
ted this cultural struggle to taint
the Christian well from which
we all drink. And this split has
permitted opposing forces to
make major strides in our elec-
toral process. They have divid-
ed ournchurches and diluted our
votes.
For the most part, Christians
have divided into four camps
- the disillusionists, the loyal-
ists, the modernists, and the tra-
ditionalists. Those who have
pitched their tents with the dis-
illusionists have all but put up
the white flag. These folks,
who have good hearts and pure
intentions, are tired of the cor-
ruption and the, lies that have
become the main artery of
American politics. They have
come to the realization that
Christians have been used and


order prescription" drugs from
Canada. Now, this is credited to
(Denise) Grimsley?
2. Grimsley's ability to
address and remedy senior citi-
zens' access to Canadian pre-
scription drugs has apparently
been overlooked .until presently
at election time.
3. Nothing against the Coast
Guard, but Thomas retired as
lieutenant commander, U.S.
Navy.'

abused in a political process
where the rules are fixed and
the outcome is rigged; and
because of that realization, they
have chosen to retreat and
withdraw from American cul-
ture.
Next up are the loyalists.
This group of Christians has
taken the opposite view of the
disillusionists, for they have
actively engaged the politic
process. Loyalists are those
Christians who have hitched
their biblical bandwagon to a
political party. To this group,
the distinction between party
politics and biblical principle
becomes blurred, thus permit-
ting secular politicos to take
advantage of their misplaced
loyalty. Eventually, some of the
loyalists become frustrated
with the lack of results yielded
by the political process and
become disillusionists.
Then we have the mod-
ernists. These are the folks who
focus all of their energy on the
demands of society, not scrip-
ture. Modernists have been
charged with placing more of
an emphasis on man's wants
and not God's needs. While
these folks turn some of their
attention to the Kingdom of
Heaven, their main focus is on
trying to create a .heaven on
Earth. Thus, they tend to reject
calls to be more scripturally
sound in their public poverty
endeavors.
Finally, the traditionalists are
the Felix to the modernist
Oscar. Traditionalists place a
heavy emphasis on scripture
and tradition, and they also
have a solid world view that is
biblically based. Their focus
tends to be geared toward
promulgating the Good News,
introducing people to the
unconditional love of Jesus
Christ, and strengthening faith
through active participation in
public politics. These
Christians have refused to abdi-


cate their place in society, but
because they fear diluting prin-
ciple with politics, they tend to
be uncompromising....
How do we reconnect?
Simple toss out loyalty to
politics and parties and replace
it with loyalty to principles.
Make no mistake, Christians
are called to an active public
life. ...
But this call to civic action
must be driven by a commit-
ment to biblical truth, not polit-
ical tenets. We are Christians
first, Americans second, and
Republicans and Democrats a
distant third. By placing politi-
cal labels above scriptural prin-
ciple, Christians have split
themselves into separate
groups, demonized each other,
and played into the hands of
their oppressors. This must end
today.
Our Christian faith erases
any man-made labels that the
secular world tries to apply to
us. Christians need to vote their
values, not their party affilia-
tion. Christians should be lead-
ing, not following, those in the
political process, and this is
best done when all Christians
return to the solid foundation of
biblical truth and use that as a
starting point to advance
-Christian public policy initia-
tives.
Look towards the issues of
life, treatment of the poor, the
place of war in society, and
purity in all aspects of life, and,
apply those issues to the truths
found in scripture. When
Christians unite behind these
principles -- and not behind the
political parties that claim to be
their spokesman -- a new
Christian world view will begin
to take root in America.
And what happens if
Christians vote and the candi-
date they chose does not keep
his 'word? Toss'em. ...

Nice to see the

third parties
Editor:
In reading your editorials
and opinions in the Oct. 15 edi-
tion, I almost had a heart
attack. You had an editorial
excerpt from the Kalamazoo
Gazette, Kalamazoo, Mich.
Being a born and raised
"Kalamazooan" and growing
up with the Kalamazoo
Gazette, I was astonished to
find the Gazette excerpt, (I use
the term loosely).
Over the years I watched the
Kalamazoo Gazette move from
a moderate paper that printed
both sides of an issue to a radi-
cal left-wing and of which I
discontinued, with a saddened
heart, plus the American
Association for Retired Persons
was involved in this editor's
editorial of which I discontin-
ued my membership due to
their one-sided views with a
total failure to ever show a
moderate or conservative side
to their biases.
Back to my almost heart
attack. I'm in total agreement
with what the Kalamazoo
Gazette said, thankfully I did
not have a heart attack.
I am sick and tired of people
voting a straight party line
because their parents are either
Democrat or Republican. I am
delighted to see third parties
make an attempt to be a factor
in the United States of America
election process, but cause a
president to be elected without
a majority of the vote.
Example: Clinton elected
twice with less than 51 percent
of the votes cast. Democrats,
why don't I hear you complain-
ing about Clinton receiving less
than 51 percent of the popular
vote, when you complained
about Bush receiving less than
51 percent of the vote? I would
like you to add Clinton's name


to your complaining (fat
chance of that happening).

Actions are not

too surprising

Editor:
For more than a month, four
Democratic campaign signs
supporting our local candidates
had existed undisturbed on our
property; two of them in front
of a landscaped rock garden
and two on the other end of the
property. Last night (Election
Day eve) in the dead of night,
some coward destroyed not
only two of the campaign signs
but stole the other two, and
then proceeded to destroy our
rock garden. The flowers, herbs
and decorations were pulled
put of the ground and thrown
on the yard, holes. were licked
in the bed and the rock border
was tossed around.
We should not however, be
too surprised at these actions.
This conduct goes hand and
hand with the nasty e-mails
\ we've received to our letters to
the editor over the past year
from local Republicans from
anonymous hotmail accounts.
This is what we have come to
expect from this. new breed of
Rove-Bush Republicans and
are nothing more than a contin-
uation of the vicious campaign
run by the Republicans.. This
should assist in exposing their
so called "moral clarity" and be
a gauge of their mental capaci-
ty.

Waterbeds


and flannels
Waterbeds and flannels
don't mix and I can tell you
why from firsthand experi-
ence.
My girlfriend's birthday is
six days before mine. For
years, when we were both
single, we would travel
together over our birthday
weekend to some place we'd
not been before and try new
adventures together. In the
early '80s, we decided to go
to Niagara Falls (www.nia
garafallslive.com/Niagara_F
alls_Webcam.htm). We
arrived in the area later at
night, probably 10 or so.
Because neither of us had
ever slept on a %waterbed, we
decided this would be a
chance for us to try one out
and see what the big deal
was.
Our first clue should have
been the lack of cars in the
parking loi. but we were
tired, so we didn't notice.
Even though the vacancy
sign as posted, the hotelier
\\ as asleep and not too
pleased to be aw akened. Our
second clue should ha\e
been the proprietor not
speaking English. After she
charged us and we refused to
payfor two rooms. we
should have quit w while we
were ahead Ironicalh. I %%as
nai'e enough to not knov.
% h, she thought it \ kas
stTange for tk'o wonen to be
sharing a queen-sized
awaterbed. Our final clue
should hate been the room
being painted completely
screaming red. B\ the tune
w\e '.ere registered and had
gonen the ke\. a red room
pretty much escaped our
understanding either .- we
were cold, tired, hungry and
cranks
Not know ing an\ thing
about \aterbeds, neither of
us realized that the bed with
the foot-and-a-half hump in
the middle was not goine to
make for a restful night. The
mattress "-as \what is called
full-%at'e and was filled as
full of \ater as the bladder
of the bed wouldd hold

1 My friend had brought her
flannel grann\ nightgot\n
that came to her ankles, and
I had brought mi silk\ paja-
mas. We both got changed
for bed, then chose sides and
prepared to settle in for a
good night's sleep. I found
m self holding onto the side
of the bed to keep from
rolling into the wooden rail-
ing on the side of the bed.
I was already asleep the
first time m\ friend turned
o\er. Her flannel go\ n stuck
to the sheets while she
turned, effect ely twisting
her into a knot inside her
gow n. like a Tootsie Roll
\ rapper. That wouldn't have
been too bad. except that
when she turned o'er. the
wave action bounced me
completely) out of the bed,
onto the floor on the other
side of the bed. This hap-
pened not onl\ once. but
tw ice. Finally. mN friend
would sa\. 'Tm turning o'er

foot on the floor and hold on

How does George's garden grow?


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Paula
George's childhood x as com-
prised of summers in Detroit
and w inters in Coral Gables
with her family.
She felt it was only natural
that she attended University of
Miami's Interior Design
School. After losing both par-
ents and her husband in 1986,
.she listedd friends in Lake
Placid.
"I ended up renting their
mobile home on Lake Travis.
Since I still had to work, I
moved to Sebring and opened
Artistic Interiors in 1990."
George said.
Later she opened Paula's
Place, w which she finally sold
four %ears ago. Her interior
decorating specially was work-
ing with what people had. "I
pushed furniture around for a
makeover. I was really ahead
of the game. Now that's 'erN
popular. I also created custom
accessories like silk plant
arrangements, trees and wall
hangings." George said. But
w working 12-hour day s took a
toll. and she didn't feel like she
had a life.

Decorating indoors
to outdoors
When she mo\ed into her
mobile home 16 years ago.
there were no plants. "Not
e\en a bush or tree. First I
added a birdfeeder and a bird
bath. Then I started cleaning
out patches of grass. First I
planted flowers and a tree for
shade and had a bit of a gar-
den \\iien I noticed butterflies
flying over. I alwtays wondered
why they wouldn't stop and
\isit. Unfortunately\ I had lots
of roses which is the "rong
type to attract butterflies."
George said.
She became so fascinated
with butterflies that she
researched the Internet and
no%\ has seen to eight \ari-
eties living and visitingg her
back\ ard.
"Each year I collected m\
seedlings and kept adding to
the garden and kept clearing
out more grass. And m\ s.on
and daughter-in-law" built my
patio so I could sit w ith friends
and enjo\ m\ garden. Because

Guidelines for attracting butterflies to a garden

Habitat loss is the number o01

program, a person can learn to

m\ mother had been a big
influence as a gardener, I hate
fi\e to si\x varieties of roses
here that I planted for Mom
and me. Although she's passed.
I always feel close to her out
here."
After she backed off on her
decorating business, she de\ot-
ed more time to attracting but-
terflies and hummingbirds to
her \ard. When she stopped
workingg full time. she felt she
trul\ had time to smell the
roses. "After all, how" much
stuff do you need? Seed, mulch
and fertilizer make me happ.
And this is where I'll stay."
George said.
Her son. Jim Harmon, lives
in Stuart and thinks she should
move closer, but she prefers
the lower cost of living in
Sebring. "Besides. then I go
to a store, someone \ ill alw a\ s
ask 'aren't you...?' That makes
me happy. George said

To attract the greatest number and

person needs plants that serve the needs

exercises, and alwa. s eats and
sleeps well. "I take care of
myself. and I feel %\hat's on the
inside sho ws on the outside.
I'e been blessed, although
ironically I do have allergies to
plants and mi cats." George
said.
In addition to tending her
back :,ard. which is certified as
a National \Vildlife Habitat
Garden. she volunteers.
"I have to be %ith people."
George said.
At Florida's Blood Centers -
Highlands. George not only
volunteers but brings in flower
arrangements for the different
seasons. Branch manager
Carmen Selander said. "She
gives blood regularlN and helps
w ith clerical jobs and stocking.
In addition, she planted our
entrance garden and keeps it
up. E\ert one lo es this wel-
coming garden and Paula
George"
When Selander built a new
home and put in a 160-gallon
garden pond. George gave her
the ad\ ice, plants and fish -
stocking it w\ ith the babies
from own her garden ponds.
In George's back) ard, there
are even wildflowers outside
the fence where the bunnies
congregate. In addition, there's
three ground-feeding stations
plus feeders on poles for the
squirrels, raccoons and a vari-
ety of birds.
"I keep cages of caterpillars
I collect so the birds won't eat
them," George said. She caters
to monarchs and the butterflies
which love the passion vines
like the Gulf fritillary and the
zebra longwing, which is our
tate butterfly. There's also
cloudless sulphurs which are
yellow and the pipe vine swal-
lowtail. While the black swal-
lowtail loves parsley and dill,
the big swallow tails like to lay
their eggs on her citrus trees
and the glory bower bushes.
Tiger swallowtails merely visit
and feast on her nectar plants,
while the queen and monarchs
both like her milkweed.
"I sit and watch them hatch
from caterpillars. Then they flit
around my backyard. When


flat-topped or clustered flowers

These plants should be grown in open,
sunnN areas., as they rarely feed on plants
in the shade. Dense "clusters" of small
flowers such as zinnias, marigolds. titho-
nia, buddleia. milkweeds. erbenas, and
man\ mint family plants generally work
well. Say no to insecticides because
most are lethal to butterflies (while in
caterpillar stage).

sleep in the pine trees in front.
They're residents, and they are
so tame they're always landing
on me. I love it. Sometimes I
have to put my hand to my
mouth to keep them out. I
enjoy my garden. This is a lit-
tle piece of heaven," George
said.
Another thing that makes
her happy is when her son vis-
its and tells of his garden proj-
ects, because she feels like she
has passed on a tradition.
The emperor's candle is a
shrub with a spectacular
bloom, but dies back in the
summer. The glory bower
blooms year-round. She origi-
nally found and collected its
seed pods on the edge of Lake
Francis, and when she planted
them, found that they came up
easily.
"My whole backyard is a
garden and it's marvelous to


take it all in Sometimes it's
just raining petals all around
me. It's a blessing, and really.
doesn't cost anything," George
said.
Recently her oldest grand-
daughter, Teresa called her.
She's a teacher in Port St.
Lucie and is engaged. "She
wanted to know if I would
make the floral arrangements
for her upcoming wedding.
That's the biggest day of a
woman's life. Isn't that a com-
pliment?" George said.
"I feel selfish because my
backyard is so beautiful, but
I'm happy to share it," George
said.

It's just too good to believe


The incredibly good news of
the gospel is that God loves sin-
ners. Not sinners who get their
act together. Not those who
clean up their lives. Not those
who make amends for their
errors. Not those who help
themselves. God loves sinners
"who are helplegs, rebellious and
uninterested in being loved
based from Romans 5:6, 8 and
10. Because he loves these sin-
ners, God has every intention of
changing them for the better.
He loves them far too much to
leave them as they are. But that
is the order of things, in time
and in causation God loves
sinners and he changes them -
not the other way around.
God does not love sinners


because they do any-
thing which calls for
his love. He does not
even love sinners
because Jesus died i
for them. Instead, 1lj
God "so loved" the
world of 'sinners
"that he gave his
only Son," based VER
from John 3:16.
Jesus' death did not SPIR
create God's love for
sinners. It demon, ViII
strated the divine -
love love which Verlon
we will never be able "-"
to understand or to
explain based from 1 John 4:9.
God loved sinners before the
world began. Then, at the right


LO
lff


C


time in his own sover-
eign plan, God sent
his son into the world
to be our Savior based
from 2 Timothy 1:9-
10. That is how much
he loved us.,
Because God loves
us so much, he
NIN'S instructs us to stop
sinning and to live for
llAL him. To live pure
MIN lives. To treat people
fairly and unselfishly
'arrell based from Titus
"" 2:11-12; 3:3-8.
Christ's love con-
strains us to do those things
based from 2 Corinthians 5:14-
15. But God does not wait to


love us until we do them. We do
them because we believe his
love shown to us in Christ.
Those people who are most suc-
cessful at living rightly know
and believe that God loves them
- and they love him in: return
based from 1 John 4:10.and 19.
Nothing in all the universe can
separate those people from
God's love in Christ Jesus
based from Romans 8:35 and
38-39.

Faith Missionary
Baptist Church
SEBRING The adult
Sunday school class is studying
the Book. of John, taught by
Chdarhe Coriiell.
SPtbt Ken Laihbirt has' been
doing a series on "Our Church."
He believes every church
should review their Statement
of Faith from time to time, so
visitors and members alike are
refreshed and recommitted to
the foundations of their Faith.
This week members will look at
Article 15 entitled "The
Ordinances."
Article 15 reads as follows:
"We believe that there are two
Church ordinances: Baptism
and the Lord's Supper. (1)
Baptism is the immersion of a
Believer in water and is proper-
ly called 'Believer's Baptism.'
It sets forth in a beautiful and
solemn way our faith in a cruci-
fied, buried, and risen Savior,
with the effects of that faith in
our lives as it produces death to
sin and resurrection to a new
life. Baptism is prerequisite to
the privileges of Church rela-
tionship. (2) The Lord's Supper
is the commemoration of our
Lord's death until He comes
and our continual fellowship
with Him, and should be pre-
ceded always by .solemn' self
examination."
Some of the supporting
Scriptures are: Acts 8: 36-39;
Romans 6:3-5; 1 Corinthians
11:23-32.
Now if anyone did not under-
stand the previous paragraph, or
would like to know more about
the above two ordinances, they
are invited to come and hear
Lambert share on this topic.
The worship service is inter-
preted into American Sign lan-
guage for those who benefit
from this service.
A "Children's Story" will be
told during the worship service
and a "quiet bag" is available
for the little ones during the ser-
mon.

Angelina's angelic voice will penetrate
everyone's heart with its enchanting
beauty, as she sings and chants her spirit-

ters, spreading their message of personal

delightful way.

Detwiler volunteers at Palms


SEBRING Cristina Detwiler of
Nappanee, Ind., has recently undertaken a
Church of the Brethren Volunteer Service
assignment with The Palms of Sebring
Retirement Community.
The Palms is a continuing care retire-
ment community. Residents can engage in a
variety of activities including exercise
classes, movies, game nights, Bible studies,
workshops, clubs and concerts. Volunteers
aid in the planning of these activities and
assist residents during them. Detwiler will
work alongside staff to provide activities
and an overall pleasant atmosphere within
the community.
Detwiler is a 2006 graduate of
Northw6od High School in Nappanee, Ind.
She was a four-year member of the high
school band and participated in drama and
the praise team. Detwiler is also interested
in the arts, enjoying ceramics and jewelry
making and is an avid reader.,
"My desire to serve was impacted by a
long family tradition and years of stories on
the good done at these projects. My grand-
pa, uncles, aunts and great-grandparents
have all served in BVS ... It is a family
legacy," Detwiler said.
Detwiler's assignment to The Palms fol-


lowed an orientation at the Brethren
Service Center in New Windsor, Md.,
where a group of 19 volunteers came
together from all over the United States and
Germany. For three weeks, they lived
together as a community and studied topics
of nonviolence, peacemaking, globalization
and simple living. They also gained first-
hand volunteer experience working at the
service center and at Baltimore City non-
profits. Orientation builds community spir-
it among participants through personal
sharing, fellowship and increased knowl-
edge,of the world.
Detwiler is taking part in a long standing
tradition of ministry through service. BVS,
established in 1948, works at advocating
justice, peacemaking. serving basic human
needs and maintaining the integrity of cre-
ation. There are currently, approximately
100 BVS volunteers in the United States
and abroad work with various peace and
social/economic justice organizations.
They focus on many current social needs
including care for children, youth and sen-
ior citizens; ecological issues; homeless-
ness; refugee assistance; domestic and
international 'peacemaking; and general
community services. In exchange for their


Cristina Detwiler

work, volunteers receive room, board and a
small monthly stipend from their project.
Brethren Volunteer Service, a program of
the Church of the Brethren General Board,
is open to any person 18 years or older
interested in service through a Christian
program.

for the first two minutes of the
second quarter, then did the
same thing in the third and
fourth quarter to build an
eter-increasing lead.
W\hitne% Lee led all scorers
with 21 points to go %with her
eight assists. Brenita Grant
turned in what head coach
Robert Sampson called "'the
best game she's played in
three Nears" by scoring 11,
including a nifty left-handed
la -up in the fourth quarter.
The Lady Streaks didn't
look razor sharp to start the
contest, but found their
groove as the tempo settled in
and the game became more
physical. Brittany Bullock
and Hannah Shoop were
tough underneath the basket.
and Chastity Godfrey spent
plenty of time di\ ing into the
stands and across the floor.
Sebring's scoring came in
bunches. Midway through the
third quarter, Lee caught fire
for three consecutive jump
shots that ga\e the Streaks a
48-19 lead. Moments later,

the Sebring cro'. d
"E\ersone tonight con-

came out strong and made
some great passes. Brittany
had 13 rebounds arid Hannah

LAKE PLACID Nowhere

For head coach Shonda
LeGree and the Lake Placid
Lady Drugons. affecting that
upward trajectory begins with
hard work in the gym and a
burning desire to improve on

"I only had a handful of girls

handful agamn." said LeGree.
"I've got four juniors, two
sophomores and a senior."
The lone senior is Ashley
Dixon, who took her junior

LeGree's biggest task to restore
the swagger of the 22-1 team

with Wildcats -


By JOHN BEDELL
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK The Avon
Park boys and girls soccer
teams earned a split with visit-'
ing Hardee Thursday night at
Joe Franza Stadium. Senior
Danielle West scored both goals
to lead the girls to a 2-1 win,
while the boys fell to the visi-
tors, 8-1.
West scored just five minutes
into the game on a breakaway.
The shot gave the Lady Devils
(2-2) a 1-0 lead at halftime.
West also headed in the ball
on a comer kick from teammate
Alex Brock at the 12:57 mark in
the second half.
Hardee, which is winless on
the season, nearly tied the game
at the two-minute mark when a:
kick bounced off the goal post


and Avon Park goalie Kristen
Kuh barely beat a Hardee play-
er to the rebound.
The Wildcats bounced back
later and scored their first goal
of the season on a penalty kick
to cut the lead to 2-1.
"The second goal Dahielle
scored was as pretty as any you
will see anywhere," first-year
Avon Park coach Greg Thacker
said.
The Avon Park boys ran into
a pair of powerful offensive
weapons for the Wildcats.
Junior Luis Reyes had four
goals and sophomore Roman
Alvarez had three.
David Shuman scored A\on
Park's onlN goal on a penalhi
kick that Francisco Lozano
blocked but the Red Devil sen-
ior quickly kicked in the

but we're looking for that
possibility."
While Mikula should be a
virtual lock to make it back
to state and make it to the
medal round, his road may
actually be the toughest of
all, simply because he was
so successful last season.
"There's a big target on
his back, this year,"
Cunningham said.
'"Last year, nobody knew
who he was and he kind of
slid in under everybody's
radar. This year, everybody.
knows who he is already
and they're gunning for
him.
"The biggest problem we
have with Tim is not having
anybody in (practice) who
can push him. We're trying
to get some of the older
gu's to come in and work
With him."
There's also the chance
that Suwannee's Lee
Lax ton. who lost in the state
final to Sebring's Blake
Germaine two seasons ago,
could be in Mikula's weight
class this season.
"I'm sure (Laxton) does-
n't want to lose to a Sebring
guy twice," Cunningham
said.
The Streaks won't have
to wait very long to see
-%here the. stand. They host
a preseason tournament this
%weekend, then \%ill wrestle
in the Class 1A Shootout at
South Florida Communiry
College next weekend, a
dual-meet tournament that
features five teams ranked
in the top-10.
"It 'will tell us a lot about
our lighter.weights because
a lot of the teams won't
have their upper weights
back from football,"
Cunningham said of the
Shootout, in which each
team will wrestle nine
matches.
"We've got some pretty
good teams coming in. Last
year, we only won one
match. I would like to see us
go 4-5 or 5-4."

He's certainly set the bar high enough.

we've got enough speed that
we're hoping we'll make up for
it." said LeGree.
Stacy Davis. who played
point last season, will see more
playing time as a shooting
guard this year. Felita Samuel
has made a reputation as a
defensive specialist in early
practices this year. Junior Ali
Baker also returns for her sec-
ond varsity season.
For Lake Placid. it all starts
with arritude. Emerging from
the depths of last year's disaster
\\ill take a psychological over-
haul before they can e\en begin
to address the Xs and Os. At
first glance, it seems nothing
positive cold come from 18
consecutive losses, but LeGree
doesn't necessarily see it that
s\ ay.
"The last group of girls
(2004-05.1 played together for
all four years in high school. It
took a while for them to get it
but when they did, they Nwent


out in srtle and won the dis-
trict." said LeGree. "This
group., when they finally real-
ized that they had the ability to
\win, almost beat the district
champs (Mulberry at the end
of the year. They 'e finally got
a chemistry going on this year
that they didn't have last year."
LeGree is setting modest
goals for her girls, but if the
team can achieve even a .500
record, the climb back to the
top could be rewarding as most
of the roster moves into their
upcoming junior and senior
seasons.
The progress w ill be obvious
if the Lady Dragons can get off
to a quick start.
"Nobody wants to repeat
ihat v'.e did last Nearn."
LeGree said. "I think they real-
ize that %with a little more self-
lessness and intensity, they can
improve. I never got to the
point \there I really tore them
apart because most kids would
walk away from a situation like
that. Nobody did. They all
came back."
