escalating loss of aircraft and

Nobody is sure what happened, but they all pointed to the
same Habit for Humanity -built house at the comer where an eld-

The house darkened suddenly about 11:30 p.m. when several
exterior lights went off.
,Then, a small knot of officers walking in lockstep behind the
protection of a shield advanced on the house.
They disappeared into the darkness surrounding the home. re-

"I don't see what we have to lose,"
Highlands County commissioner
Barbara Stewart said. "Regionalism is
here. We need to participate and cooper-
ate."
Location was an undercurrent of con-
cern with a few of the 30 people in atten-
dance questioning how a facility two
counties away would benefit them.
To participate in the catalyst program,
county governments must sign a memo-
randum of agreement.
Those counties would share in a por-
tion of the ad valorem taxes collected by
the catalyst industry that locates in the
region. Likewise, the host county of a
still-to-be-identified company would
relinquish some tax revenue.
Theoretically, surrounding communi-
ties would use the tax money to upgrade
infrastructure in anticipation of a com-
muting workforce and to draw the com-
panies that would follow the catalyst.
"We don't just \ ant to go to market,
we want to close a deal real soon." Don

goal is to "foster c ooperadive
partnerships and relations
between the U.S. and Russia,"
according to their mission state-
ment.
The CCI's flagship program
is the Productivity Enhance-
ment Program, which is
designed to give non-English
speaking Russian entrepreneurs
exposure to Western business
practices. The, program also
serves to improve the business
environment in Russia by
exposing its citizens to different
methods of doing business.
Renee said organizing the
experience is both challenging
and fun. The entire trip takes
nine months to plan locally, she
.said, but they did it in less than
three this time.
The Rotarians have received
lots of help from local business-
es, she said. Alan Jay
Automotive contributed a 15-
person van to pick up the
Russians at the Tampa airport,
and Fountain Funeral Homel
loaned a cargo van to help with
luggage. Bill Jarrett Ford gave
the group two seven-person
vans fqr the week to drive the
13-member delegation to their
destinations.


"We've got to find the most optimistic
opportunity that's the most realistic."
State grants of $2 million were given
to three rural areas of critical economic
concern to help them close the gap
between rural and urban centers by
employing a regional mindset.
Upton urged the decision makers in
attendance to weigh which is more ben-
eficial 500 easily-obtained, but low
paying jobs or 50 high paying jobs that
would be the first to transform the
region's image.
The former, something similar to
Hardee's Wal-Mart distribution center,
might have potential for growth in cen-
tral Florida but likely wouldn't result in
spin-off industries or the elevated quali-
ty of life sought.
The latter, something along the lines
-of medical research, high-end special-
ized medicine or other scientific endeav-
ors, might be harder to entice but the
payoff would be felt in seemingly dis-
similar areas, Upton said.
"It probably has a larger effect on the
entire economy," Jim Brantley, execu-
tive director of Highlands' Tourist
Development Council, agreed during a
discussion with Sebring Mlayor George

Discussion about the historic
Pearce. Homestead continued
Thursday at the Highlands
County Historic Preservation
Commission's monthly meet-
ing.
Lynn Topel, executive direc-
tor of Florida's Heartland Rural
Economic Development Initia-
tive, presented an organization-
al structure for the Homestead
to the Highlands County
Historic Preservation Commis-
sion Thursday.
Topel's plan lays out how the
Friends of the Pearce
Homestead group could be
organized. There would be two
paid staff members: an execu-
tive director who would be
directly responsible for making .
sure the work on the property 'is
being done. 'and 'a 'qull-time
caretaker "on the property. The.
caretaker position is not.a ne\.-.
one has been at the property for
many years.
The 'organizational structure
also addresses how to use the
$500,000 grant money pro-
posed by the South Florida
Water Management District, the
current owner of the property, if
the county buys the property.,
The $500,000 would be, spent in
a four-year process according
to the plan, but the hope is that
a significant amount of private
donations and various grants
will be raised during the time as
well, in order to make the prop-
erty completely self-sustain-
able.

raw materials. The raw material is the
baby boomers moving to Florida."
Despite what is decided when the
committee takes its idea and proposal to
market, the targeted industry may not
want to locate here, or may not want to
locate in the specified location.
Therefore, by working together as a
region and committing to the memoran-
dum of agreement the efforts of any one
county wouldn't be lost if a targeted
company chooses another county in their
region.
In addition, state-mandated permits
(with a water management district, for
example) are accelerated to bolster the
process. Again, if the site isn't chosen by
a particular group, the permitting work
has already been accomplished and
could be applied to another business.
"It's a win-win situation," Stewart
said, noting that her three children
migrated elsewhere. "This would give us
an opportunity to educate our workforce.
Give our children something to return

aside $100,000 of the money as
.an initial payment to help with
startup costs.
After that. four quarterly
payments of $25.000 each will
be paid for four years, for a
total of $400,000. The quarterly
payments will be made. only
upon proof of completed work,
x which w ill be presented to the
county. according to the organi-
zational plan.
But if all goes according to
plan, the quarterly payments
won't be the only source of
funding available. The Friends
of the Peaice Homestead group
will be set up as a 501(c)(3)
charitable group. This will not
only give private citizens inter-
ested in the project a place to
send donations, but it will also
mean those donations will be
tax-deductible.
The.commission will hold at
least one more meeting about
.the property before presenting
their plan to the county com-
mission during a planning
workshop. The committee is
looking at Jan. 9 as a possible
date to present the proposal,
although that date is-not final-
ized yet.
There will be discussion on
the efforts to save the home-
stead at the Highlands County
Homeowners Association meet-
ing Monday morning.

Motorcyclists come together


for two charity poker runs


Rally for peace


Special to the News-Sun
Motorcyclists have an oppor-
tunity to join in two poker runs
next weekend, each benefiting a
different organization.
The Fun Bike Center Ride
for the Red to benefit the
American Red Cross serving
Highlands and Polk counties
will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday
in two locations Central Park
in Winter Haven and the Circle
in downtown Sebring with
registration at 8:30 a.m. Riders
will visit any four of eight road
stops between Highlands and
Polk counties, ending at the
Winter Haven Bikefest before 5
p.m.
All proceeds from the event
will support American Red
Cross services in Highlands or
Polk counties. Red Cross disas-
ter assistance is free, made pos-
sible by voluntary donations of
time and money from the
American people..
Every year, more than 90
percent of Polk County
American Red Cross responses
are local disasters, including
apartment fires, flooding and
wildfires, providing victims
with immediate basic needs -
housing, food and clothing -
Red Cross volunteers supply


food and water to firefighters,
medical personnel and law
enforcement officers working at
disaster sites, whether fires,
floods, storms, or hazardous
materials spills.
The American Red Cross
also provides training in first
aid, cardio-pulmonary resusci-
tation and. other lifesaving
skills. In addition, it provides
emergency communication
between military personnel and
their families.
Riders who wish to pre-reg-
ister for the motorcycle ride
may contact the Highlands
County Service Center at 386-
4440, 386-4443, or e-mail
hcarc @ vistanet.net.
Then, starting at 9:30 a.m.
Sunday, Nov. 19, the Matt
Williams and DiOGi Memorial
Ride and Poker Run begins
from Chalet Suzanne with reg-,
istration at 7 a.m. Riders in the
poker run will visit three stops,
ending at USA International
Speedway in Lakeland, fol-
lowed by a memorial ride
through Polk City, ending again
at the Speedway.
All proceeds from the event
will go directly to Matt's
Family and Memorial Fund.
More information is also avail-


able at www.polksheriff.org,
and www.theradicalteam.com,
or by calling Sheriff's Deputy
Nick Taylor or Debbie Taylor at
(863) 287-5552. Those who
wish to volunteer and help with
the ride, please call Sheriff's Lt.
Mike Green at (863) 534-6676
or (863) 287-7224.
Red Cross volunteers who
will help with the Matt and
DiOGi Memorial Poker Run,
call Scialo at-294-5941.
"The outpouring of support
by the community has been
overwhelming," said Green, in
law enforcement for 30 years.
He said the tragic loss of an
officer being murdered on duty
has shocked civilians and law
enforcement both. Through it
all, Green said, the American
Red Cross has always helped
the sheriff's office, just as they
help any victim of a house fire
or natural disaster.
"Although Red Cross riders,
volunteers and staff may be
exhausted from. Saturday's
event," Scialo said, "there
would be nothing to keep them
from supplying material and
human, resources to support the
Matt Willianms & DiOGi
Memorial Ride and Poker,
Run."

for Mid Town Center


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID A ground-
breaking for Mid Town Center
business condominiums located
at 147 Tower St. will take place
at 3 p.m. Nov. 16 announced
Bill Klohn, president of the
Naples-based development
company, MDG Capital
Corporation.
The Lake Placid Chamber of
Commerce will preside over the
groundbreaking, which marks
the beginning of construction
for the region's newest com-
mercial space.
MDG Capital will be con-
structing two Old Florida-style
buildings with 10,200 square
feet each that include covered
porches, dormer windows and
lap siding. Each building will
house six condominiums that
local businesses can lease or
purchase as a commercial con-
dominium.
Each condominium will fea-
ture 1,200 square feet under air
with an additional 500 square
feet of storage available. In


addition to the customer entry
at the front of the building,
there will also be a rear delivery
entrance with a garage door.
According to Klohn, this fea-
ture eliminates the traffic prob-
lems and pedestrian safety con-
cerns caused by delivery trucks
parking in driveways in front of
businesses.
MDG Capital subsidiaries or
its principals are also involved
in two other significant, com-
mercial projects in Highlands
County Uptown Center, a
retail/professional park in the
Lake Placid area, which fronts
nearly half a mile on U.S. 27
and a Walgreens on the south-
west corner of U.S. 27 and
Interlake Boulevard. MDG has
also entered into two contracts
to purchase two other parcels in
Highlands County, which col-
lectively total nearly 160 acres
of land for proposed residential
communities.
MDG Capital has offices in
Maryland, West Virginia and
Florida.


Kissimmee. "The committee
decorates 12 of the mansion's
rooms," Weishaupt said. "They
beautify each room with either
traditional or modern trim-
mings using fresh flowers,
greenery and other decorative
items."
But the FTD decorating com-
mittee doesn't view decorating
the mansion as work; they find
it to be a rewarding experience.
"Our time spent in Tallahassee
is x\orth\'.hile. The sight of the,
mansion lit up and full of holi-
day trimmings is breathtaking,"
Weishaupt said.

Continued from 1A
temperature hovered around 50-
below. German fighters began
intercepting as usual, but there
were more of them.
The German fighter planes
arid pilots were the best. The
single-engine fighters could
attack from any direction, but
their pilots liked getting ahead
at 11.30 to 12.00 o'clock high,
in the sun, rolling over on their
backs and diving in front of the
formation, with all guns blaz-
ing. Sometimes a German fight-
er pilot would be killed on his
way in, and the pilot-less plane
would plow through the forma-
tion wreaking havoc. Also,
exploding or pilot-less B-17's
were an added danger.
Twenty-one bombers were
shot down before we reached
the target. This was just a prel-


ude of the horrors awaiting us.
We did not know that the Nazis
had correctly guessed our target
was the ball bearing factories at
Schweinfurt, and were using the
time it was taking us to reach
the target to gather hundreds of
fighters from across Germany.
They were positioning them,
fueled, armed and ready to
intercept us when we left the
target.
We bypassed Schweinfurt,
then made a quick 180, so we
would be headed for home
when we made the bomb run.
The formation flattened out so
we would not drop our bombs
on each other. The Bombay
doors were opened and the pilot
steadied the plane making it
easier for the bombardier to
read the bombsight.
Sitting on a po%%der keg of
bombs and high-octane gas, we
proceeded into what seemed an
impenetrable wall of exploding


shells. The anti-aircraft shells
weighed 22 pounds each. They
had to pass within six feet to be
heard, sounding like a freight
train. Hundreds of shells
exploding at a pre-set altitude
filled the sky with pieces of
jagged metal, "flak." Propellers
grabbed the acrid puffs of
smoke, swirling it through the
plane, shells roared by on both
sides.
I could feel the plane tossed
about by the concussions, hear
the flak pinging through its
metal skin, see pieces ricochet
on the floor, hear the sickening
thump of a larger piece, watch
planes spinning out of control
with a wing or tail sheared off
or explode from a direct hit. I
knew the danger of: leaking
fuel that, could engulf the plane
in fire; loss of oxygen or electri-
cal systems; or parachuting, if
you had the chance, into a fatal
nightmare. I could not fight nor

It was hell above, and I am
certain, after we dropped our
heavy demolitions, firebombs
and incendiaries, hell below.
The last bursts of flak were
brilliant red, a signal to the
German fighters, waiting in
large numbers, that the flak had
ended.
The battle was on. Fighters
were zipping by from every
direction, at high speeds. There
was a lot of screaming on the
intercom. "Watch him!
Watch him! ... Five o'clock!.
He's coming in! ... Two o'clock,
Morgan! ... He's coming under!
.. Jump.it! ... Jump it!"
Planes were exploding..
Others, spiraling down, trailing
smoke or spinning out of con-
trol with a wing or tail gone.
The machine guns continually
firing. We were trying to keep
our balance walking on the
spent shell casings piling up on
the floor. Parachutes were in the
air, some on fire.
It was like being in the midst
of a Fourth of July fireworks
display. I saw a ball turret se'v-
ered from a plane and watched
it fall away. The top turret gun-,
ner, in a plane next to us, was
firing his gu ns. A moment later,
part of the turret and his head
was gone. In the panic, the
plane above us kept crowding
closer. A couple times. I was on
my knees, cringing. I thought
sure one of his propellers was
coming through the top of the
radio room. Sudden]), there
was a loud crack. His wing w as
sheared off at the fuselage.,

and flapping, some planes were
trailing smoke with two engines
feathered, literally trying to
make it home on a wing and a
prayer. One hundred and twen-
ty-nine flying fortresses were
shot down or damaged beyond
repair.
Finally, with a great sigh of
relief we saw the English
Channel where the RAF
Spitfires had air supremacy.
Arriving at the base, some of
the severely damaged planes
crashed while attempting to
land, others slid in on their bel-
lies. There was fire, smoke,
explosions, ambulances, fire
trucks and mayhem. I climbed
down from the plane. I had sur-
vived one more mission.
Walking past a nearby plane,
I wondered how it could have
possibly made it home. with so
much of it shot away; What was
left of the fuselage was riddled
with holes, some leaking;blood.
I went to the barrack, made
myself a sandwich and a cup of

cope. There were self-inflicted
injuries. Many became mental-

Those of us who finished our
missions came home. but not
alone. We brought someone
,with uss an inseparable..
unpredictable fighter.
I returned to the quiet little'

Tow trucks


can help


firefighters


save lives

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
AVON PARK Buses
crushed cars beneath them.
Other cars tangled with a tanker
truck. Fortunately for the fire-
fighters who arrived, the scene
was set for three days of
advanced extrication training.
Sponsored in part by the
Florida State Firefighter's
Association, the Great' Florida
Fire School was in Highlands
County conducting classes at
locations from South Florida
Community College to
Rodney's Auto Repair &
Towing in Lake Placid.
"It's really an eye opener,"
association president Steven
Robertson said during a break
in training at his office in Avon
Park, next to the Florida Army
National Guard Armory. .
A volunteer with West
Sebring Volunteer Fire
Department, Robertson's full-
time job is with the Highlands
County Detention Center,
where he's a shift captain.
"Some of these school buses
carry 70 kids, where do we,
have enough ambulances to
carry 70 kids," he said, explain-
ing the challenge of making life
and death decisions. "You call
two other buses. ... That's not
something you usually think
about during a mass casualty."
The.extrication class, one of
several courses of instruction
during the week, is a relatively
new concept in the search and
rescue world, said Erik Stewart
of EX Team extrication, the
non-profit group that facilitated
the training.'
"We do this to change peo-
ple's thinking," he said.


NUDITY

and in elaborate costumes.
Also, due to the type of crowd
that the festival draws, some are
shown in the background of the
documentary walking around
naked.
The nudity is what upset
Sebring High parents once they
heard what their children were
seeing.
The documentary does loose-
ly deal with economics, but
with naked men and women
walking around in. the back-
ground parents find it hard to
see why a teacher would pick
this movie for a classroom to


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Instructor Brian France, left, a state-certified towing operator, tells
firefighters what to watch for Thursday afternoon when working
with a tow truck to move wreckage to extract a victim.


By training firefighters and
tow truck operators, the organi-
zation is attempting to bridge a
gap of trust, respect and train-
ing to close the time gap during
the "Golden Hour" the cru-
cial first 60 minutes when med-
ical attention has the best
chance of prevent further injury
or death.
Despite an 18-year back-
ground in wrecker services and
rescue, Stewart often was
rejected by incident command-
ers typically law enforce-
ment or firefighters who did-,
n't realize how he could help by
moving a vehicle the few inch-
es to allow for extraction,
avoiding amputation or worse.
"I wasn't wearing the same at
as them,'I guess," he said,
explaining that the towing
industry has a reputation it's
attempting to overcome.
By cross training firefighters
and tow operators (neither
would leave the school certified
in the other's line of expertise),
they can approach a situation
together with mutual under-


standing and willingness to
cooperate.
Several towing operations
from the state were on hand,
and Rodney's Repair & Towing
hauled junk cars .from Lake
Placid and other equipment to',
support the firefighters'( train-
ing.
"It's time for the towing
industry to step up and clean up
their act," Stewart said, explain-
ing that half of the operators he
invites to participate bal- at the
expense, while the other half
happily cover the cost.
He said most reckers are
very professional despite the
industry image, and the\ deal
with 2-3 accidents dails where-
as a volunteer firefighter might
experience one or two per
month.
"Who would make more
sense to have on the scene?" he
said, explaining that a future
goal is to bring in police to
imniediately recognize what
type of wrecker to request -
medium heavy, heavy or ultra--
heavy.


watch.
"I feel like my daughter was
force fed male nudity," said
Cyndy Stanley, mother of a sen-
ior at Sebring High. "I don't see
why she is watching this in her
economics class."
Usually there is a limit to
what teachers can show -
nothing over a PG- rating in the
high schools but being an
independent documentary, the
film did not have a rating..
School board member Ned
Hancock said they are dealing
with this in a preventative fash--
ion, as is Stanley,'both working
together to put the issue on
Monday's school board agenda.
"I can't take the images out


of my daughter's head,"
Stanley said, "but I can help
keep,: this from happening
again."
Hancock has the same feel-
ings.
"Any time you have a class-
room in a public school you
have varying degrees of appro-
priateness (what each parent
will. allow their student to
watch), and that is why the
board has adopted a PG-rating
for movies to be shown in the
classroom.
"I think the biggest parent
concern is what (additional)
procedurescan be put in place
to keep this from happening
again," Hancock said.

Getting it


on paper
Being a pressman is a
messy job. ,which is only one
of the neat things about it.
The best pan is the machine
itself.
We have a Goss Community
off-sei press here at the News-
Sun.
It extends from one end of a
room to the other, appro\i-
mately 60 feet in length, six
feet w ide and o\er six feet
high except in the middle.
where a framework lower nses
about 20 feet into the air.
The combination of smells.
oil and ink. is intoxicating.
A 60 horsepower electric
motor runs the press. At full
bore it is not just the engine
that roars every square inch
of ever component vibrates as
i if alive. Over my head, the
press bristles w ith ladders and
loud bells ring every time it
starts up.
Standing next to it the other
day, it seemed to me the huge
machine %wanted to break free
of its moorings, as if it wanted
to become a vehicle and move
through space., just like the
locomotives it reminded me of
at that time.
Actually a train isn't a bad
analogy for a printing press
like the one we use For one
thing it is made up of indi\ id-

Pressman


A career steeped in tradition and ink

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY

here is something wonderful about cracking open a brand
new newspaper. The snap of a fresh page holds it abo'e a
electrical\ buzzing, wavering monitor screen.
E en better. printers trace back a long and rich history. Working
as one is to have a career steeped with tradition.
Today's pressmen operate pnnting presses that. while very supe-- 0
rior and different from centunes ago. could still be recognized by -
Benjamin Franklin there are only so many ways of putting ink
on paper.
Franklin put together printing plates using individual letters to
spell out %words. tightening them into a frame to make a printing
plate. The printing plates ,%ere inked and the paper pressed flat
directly upon them.
Today. the plates are made of almost paper thin aluminum. They
can be bent and attached to a roller and spun at high speeds. t
The computer copy is transferred onto plates ia computers and '
a film process. That part of the printing procedure has changed the
most. But the making of the plates belongs to a different occupa-
uon. the pre-press.people %%ho live ahd die by their computers.
Back in the press room. w ith its noise and %.et ink. the work is
done by hand using, wrenches. leers and knobs.

But you need to think of the

\\ ith printing units stretching
out to the left and right A sin-
gle drive shaft. running down
the entire length of the
machine keeps everything in
basic sync. pulling the paper
evenly at tremendous rates of
speed. Fully humming, the
press turns out 16.000 copies
of a section an hour
Lee Smith. our lead press-
man, said they turn out o'er a
million impressions a month -
an impression being a page.
A roll of paper. looking like
a toilet paper roll on steroids,
but called a web. is mounted
onto a metal shaft, at each end
of the press. The paper is then
threaded through predeter-
rmined units. over and under,
and sometimes coming back on
itself. That's because each
color ink is applied separately.
Each unit has mto actual press-
es, meaning there are 14- print-
ers provided by the seen dif-
ferent units.
Each color has its o\%n print-


ing plate The paper will be
pulled through one press which
w ill print only the red portion
of things, than the paper %will
go through another press where
ever thing in \ellow ill be
pnnted. then blue. That's why
it is called three process color.

precision.

tucked in half and cut off the
roll, producing a section at a
time.
Of course the process is not
quite so simple, because more
than color factors into a press
run.
The number of pages to be
printed is also important. as is
the fact that pages are printed
on both sides.
For example, a roll of paper.
a %web. is wide enough to allow
for two pages to be printed on
one side. But if one of those
pages is a full color page. and
the other is an all black and
w white page, the pressman has
to set up a paper path so the
\\eb not only runs through the
indi\ idual colors at the right
time, but that the correct por-


tion of the paper runs through
as %well. That leads to compli-
cated paths that look like spi-
der vwebs, hence the term web
for the paper rolls.
But wait it gets more
complicated still.
Newspaper sections vary in
size, typically depending on
the amount of advertising sold.
Sections do not always hae an
even number of pages. That
means half width rolls of paper
are also used. Half width rolls
are called dinkies. For exam-
ple, it takes a ,web and dinky to
make a six page section But
the dinkies. being narrower.
have to run on separate paths
than the webs. and getting all
those paper paths to converge.
in correct order, at the center
tower, takes a lot of planning.
Watching Smith and press
super isor Skip LooneN oper-
ate the machine was a wonder.
They basically di% ide it in

ience. one \working each one
side of the tower.
As the paper flow s,. slowly

sample copies of the run as

examine them for quality., espe-
cially for crisp. clear color, and

Each of the units had knobs,
levers, wheels, and turn screws
in various combinations.

ing side, late sports scores or a

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


Learning a
There are a number of rea-
sons I write. For one thing, I
enjoy it. Some people find sit-
ting down and slapping words
onto a blank page a burden -
for me, it's a joy.
There is another thing that
drives me to the word proces-
sor. -Sometimes, I do something
or something happens to me I
don't fully process. Then writ-
ing is a form of therapy for me.
If I take that situation and put it
into a story or a column, some-
times it helps me understand it
better.
Hang on to something. This
will be one of those columns.
To explain the situation, I
first have to explain what I've
been doing the past few days. I
have been in Las Vegas. No, I
was not there to gamble (no, I
really didn't, for those of you
smarty pants who are assuming
everyone goes to Vegas to gam-
ble).
I was attending a seminar
called "Writers and Firearms."
'The conference, sponsored by
the Second Amendment
Foundation, attempts to educate


Our veterans

deserve respect
Editor:
The other day, I was at the
Florida National Cemetery
located in Bushnell. I transport-
ed, for burial, one of our veter-
ans of World War II with an
enormous amount of pride and
humility, knowing that this
individual served our country
during a time of world conflict.
I took time on the way out of
the cemetery to stop and walk
between the white stones, read-
ing the names, and then I real-
ized that they had given so
much for the freedom that I
enjoy today.
Most young people do not
have any idea about the world
wars of yesterday,. the Korean
War, the Vietnam War, or, for
that matter, the way our ances-
tors fought for our freedom
back in the 1700s. People do
not realize that the battle for
Texas at the Alamo, the
Spanish American War and the
War Between the States were
fought for the freedoms that
you and I enjoy today.
Freedom. This is such a pre-
cious word to say and to know
that men and women died and
served to give me those, free-
doms that we enjoy each day.
My wife still has a half-brother
that is a Missing in Action in
Vietnam --he was a pilot shot
down over Laos. Proud!, You
are damn right that we, as a
family, are proud.
During World War II, my
family had seven members who
served along with millions of
others so that we could enjoy
these freedoms today.
So many of our veterans will
never return to be with the
loved ones, but the memories
will always be with those
whose loss was so great
because that loved one gave so
much to his or her country.
Veterans Day means so
much to us who have served
this great nation and will
always remember those com-
rades of yesteryear.
I write this letter only to say
that my heart is saddened by
the way our flag is disrespected
and our veterans are not appre-
ciated. I know full well that the
flag of this great nation is loved
by all who served and that the
veterans of yesterday and today
will still be at each other's side
through thick or thin.
To those young men and
women who are now serving,
as well as to the National
Guardsmen, I salute you for
keeping us free. Thank you and
hopefully someone will say
thank you for what you have
done for me because I live in a
nation of the land of the free.
So to you, may God bless you
always and God bless this great
land of ours.

lesson through a class simulation


writers about guns
- what they can do,
what they can't do,
and what people can
or can't do with


them.
Information like this is great
for a writer. Yes, we make a lot
of stuff up. And sometimes, to
make a story work, we decide to
leave reality for the sake of
drama. But reality will ground a
reader.
So we sat through a day of
lectures about weapon and
forensics and other things. The
last day of the seminar we went
to an outdoor firing range.
Experience is the best teacher
in some cases. We got to fire a
bunch of weapons, including a
.50 caliber gun that was pretty
powerful.
But the thing that was the
most intense and that I want to
talk about is the simulation.
They told us we were going
to experience "adrenal stress."
We wouldd be gi en a modified
pistol that shot paint bullets (but
had the feel of a real gun) and
put in a scenario %%here we


would have to
decide what to do.
Being told just
that was enough to
stress some of us a


little. But we were
all game to try it. We were told
several times that there was no
right or wrong to what we did
- it was an experience, not a
character test. But we would
learn things from it. We might
even learn things about our-
selves.
So when my turn came, I was
suited up with a vest, neck pro-
tection, and a helmet with a
clear visor. I was then given a
paint pistol and told how to
hold it until the scenario started.
Then they put a hood over
my head and walked me to
where the simulation would
take place. I was told when the
hood came off, the simulation
would start.
What happened? There was a
lot of shouting. The scenario
involved a hostage in a house
w ith someone armed in there as
%well. The technical term for the
scenario was a "suck-in" -

Forum offered

good insight
Editor:
I too attended the candidate'
forum sponsored by the
Heartland Board of Realtors,
but I disagree with one of my
colleagues whose recent letter
suggested that the event
descended into "Jerry
Springer"-like chaos.
Thank you to those who took
the time to organize the event.
schedule the candidates, gather
the questions and moderate the
debate. It was my first opportu-
nity to hear both Tim Mahoney
and Joe Negron firsthand. I was
surprised to find Negron articu-
late and %well informed on
issues, an optimistic candidate
x ith a track record we can eval-
uate.
Maybe the "Jerry Springer"
Comment was prompted by
Mr. Mahoney's focus on his
opponent and not on the issues,
until prodded by the moderator
'for specifics. That debate was
certainly helpful in my decision
making.
The forum was also the first
opportunity I had to hear the
county commission candidates
address the quantum leap in the
county budget this year, a $30,
million-plus increase over last,
year, and more than double the
expenditures from eight years
ago. It was quite a surprise to
see that only John Barrett
seemed to think the problem is
fiscal restraint and not growth.
Our county has only experi-
enced 3 percent growth on


average in that same period,
and median income has
increased less than $4,000 per
year. I hope the local news
media pursue this issue in
detail with each of the candi-
dates and publish their posi-
tions in the next few days
before the election.
This year's property taxes
have doubled (in some cases
tripled) for property owners
who do not benefit from home-
stead exemption. If our season-
al residents discover that
Highlands County is no longer
an affordable place to live, and
our young people find theN
cannot buy a home because
taxes and insurance nearly
equal a mortgage payment, the
local economy will suffer.
. My hope is that our newly
elected commissioners, state
legislators, and members of
congress make fiscal discipline
and tax reductions a priority.

Grimsley helps

with coverage

Editor:
If you are watching WINK
TV on Comcast cable, you owe
a vote of thanks to your state
representative Denise
Grimsley. Denise took a per-
sonal interest in the fact that
Comcast planned to drop
WINK for a Tampa station in
late October.
The many letters and phone
calls to Comcast in protest by
cable customers was cited in a


meeting with Representative
Grimsley and Comcast officials
in early October.
This action by Represent-
ative Grimsles is a great exam-
ple of your elected official
working for your interests.
Denise Grimsley deserves the
vote of all who watch WINK
TV in Highlands County!

I would d like everyone in

passed away, the present organ-
ization is now in the, hands of

Well, I managed to get

I'm not trained.
But my reaction was intense.
When I got back to where I had

Everyone was very nice and
supportive about it.
To be. honest the whole thing-

quite a day as I type this (I am

Did I learn something about

The thing is, I'm not sure

Problems with

our education
Editor:
This is a letter I sent to Jim
Davis, governor candidate.
Rep. Davis,
I clearly agree with your
viewpoint in reference to the
education crisis in Florida.
I had opposed the Florida
Comprehensive Achievement
STest a year after it was imple-
Smented. The reason is that at
least 50 to 60 years ago, the
concept was to teach the whole
Child to prepare him for the
Future. Core curriculum was a
Basic policy; about a half dozen
major disciplines were the
cores around the courses were
> developed. Now the focus is on
four basic disciplines: reading,
writing and arithmetic, plus sci-
ence added this year.
i The problem with the FCAT
-is that they kept changing the
rules each year; there was
. much confusion trying to
, understand the previous rules
- and adjust to them, then have to
*, change strategy to comply with
e the new rules. Also, the level of
satisfactory progress was
increased each year; thus, when
a student barely passed the one
year, he was already behind in
the new year.
Gov. Bush has consistently


decreased the state's support
for schools. Even support for
growth of student population
remained static so that class-
room shortage increased each
year. Thousands of portables
dot every public school in this
state. State support for schools
has decreased from 60 to 20
percent in the last 30 years.
Three years ago, Gov. Bush
cut education by $600 million
and Department of Children
and Families $300 million to
reduce the state budget deficit,
while giving millions of dollars
in tax cuts to big business.
Those funds were never
restored.
Two years ago in Highlands
County, teachers were
swamped with paperwork from
FCAT and Leave No Child
Behind. They used volunteer
mentors to do the paperwork so
they could teach. I am part of
Highlands County Mentor/
Tutor Program that recruits
local citizens and northern visi-
tors to help our children reach
grade.level; they didn't volun-
teer to do paperwork. Yet,
Florida is near the bottom
among states in national educa-
tion performance.
Private schools received mil-
lions of dollars with no
accountability; yet, studies
show that public schools per-'
form just as well or better, in
spite of the tremendous pres-
sure by the state. Sir, the claim
that our public schools are fail-
ing is utterly false. Our society
.has produced millions of chil-
dren who are not ready to start
school. The great majority are
minorities, a. significant diver-
sity. That is why Pre-K was ini-
tiated. The public schools can-
not overcome this diverse lack
of academic and social skills in
a couple of years. They need
help. Our taxes are being used
to help parents teach their chil-
dren social skills in Pre-K, a

pursuing the three R's.
Yet, Gov. Bush has even
interfered with that program.
The funds are going to private
schools and day care centers
instead of public schools where
the teachers are required to be
certified. Have you pondered
who is going to those private
schools? The rich and upper
middle class children who were
going there anyway. Now the
taxpayers are funding their
children's education. The poor
represent a mere fraction

Control Diabetes'
Washington -Anew formulation of exotic
sounding herbi and spices may be the key to
controling diabetes.
Scientists sayt tha die formula, called
CinnergenW lowers blood sugar levels by
efficiently and effecmely metabolizing
glucose In a recently small double-blind
study at a Pennsyvania medical research
clinic, all Type I diabetes parents taking
just one capful of the liquid (one ounce) a
day dramancally lowered their blood sugar
levels compared to the placebo group
Another scientific study Ibond thai one of
the ingredients in Cinnergen made insulin 20
times more capable of breaking down blood
WhileindividualresultsvaryCinneigen
begins to lower blood sugar levels in the
average individual within 3 to 4 weeks
and continues thereafter. Some patients,
under their doctor's care, have been able to
reduce or eliminate their need for diabetc
drugs Researchers suggest that Cminnergen
actually helps diabetic drugs to work more
efficiently.
A number of very compelling

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Patience before

blast off
Astronauts and the space
Program team must be
among the most patient peo-
ple on earth. And that
patience is supremely tested
before blast off of another
shuttle.
Not long ago. the blast,
off of the space shuttle, ,
Atlantis, was delayed sever-
al times. If not the weather,
some mechanical quirk
wouldd need attention. Can
vou imagine the anticipation
and then the disappointment
that must accompany each
planned launch?'
The astronauts and their
team of scientists at the
space center must have felt
frustrated. But, the, took it
in stride. The safety of the
astronauts and their craft
had to be the utmost priori-
ty. We can learn a lesson
from these adventurous
souls. A cooling off period
before blast off produces
beneficial results instead of
destructive consequences.
I recall a time when
someone said something to
me that sparked a rapid fire
response whichh shortly after
led to remorse on m\ part.
At first the explosion
seemed justified. But a
much higher purpose %would
ha'e been served had I
counted do\ n before blast-
ing off.
Anger has a w\a) of boil-
ing just under the surface.
Its presence distorts the
problem and delay s the cor-
rect response. But. if %%e
exercise self-control and
unravel the problem one
step at a time, solutions are
usually in view.
Anger and frustration
leads to blame, accusations
and misinterpretation.
Whereas, taking a patient
and often difficult look in
and around that same dilem-
ma can reveal the truth. dif-
fuse the explosion and
insure the right outcome.
I once saw a church sign
that read. "Patience is the
ability to count down before
blasting off."
That suggests that "blast-
ing off" would not be
destructi'ely fueled by
anger and retribution: but.
constructively kindled b\
enthusiasm for truth.
God has created us w ith a
range of emotions. If we
yield our control to the Holy
Spirit, his fruit %%ill be pro-
duced in us. That fruit is
reflected in lo\e, joy. peace.
patience, kindness, good-
ness. faithfulness, gentle-
ness and self-control.
If we're angry and yield
it to the Spirit's control.
selfishness will flee and it
will be directed appropriate-
ly toward injustice "ith the
nrht motivation and
actions. We won't seek
re'ence because we'll take
to heart the verse found in
Romans 12: 19, NIV, which
says. "Do not take revenge,
mn friends, but lea'e room
for God's \ rath. for it is
written, 'It" is mine to
avenge: I will repayy' says
the Lord."
The3 say not to pray for
patience because you'll get
the trials that produce that
irtue. Better to yield and
let patience be expressed in
us through the Holy Spirit's
indwtelling presence.
This way count dow n will
sow the seeds of a fruitful
explosion. Selah.

Child Evangelism Fellowship and Cadence

International supporting children of troops


Missionary prepares to leave for Japan


By JAN MEROP
iVr n n rrspfin ni
SEBRING
Magnetic ribbons sporting the
words "Support our troops"
are a familiar sight.
But, Rob Hecox. former director of
Florida Heartland's Child Evangelism
Fellow ship. would love to see a ribbon
that says. "Support our troops by sup-
porting their children."
And he's putting feet to his words by
preparing to lea'e for Japan with his
wife Christine. 2-Near-old son Christian,
and another little one on the way. The%
w ill be part of Malachi Children's
Nlinistry. a joint 'enture of Child
E'angelism Fellowship and Cadence
International. which has been sert\ing
the youth of military personnel for
some time.
There are approximately 25 major
military installations in Japan and
Okinawa combined. Hecox's vision is
to see CEF's Good News Club after
school program established at each of
these bases.
Good News Clubs are Bible clubs for
children %who are held one hour a week
during the school year traditionally
in people's homes: but, more recently in
day cares, recreation centers and at
school facilities.
On a recent trip to Japan, he % isited a
base and saw% a memorial service taking
place.
"To see all those flags and realize
what it meant "\as heart rending."
Hecox said.
Hecox "\ants to be involved in the
lives of the children of military families
bringing them the hope of the gospel of
Jesus Christ %while prove hiding whole-
some. fun acti' ities for them in an
afternoon program on the base.
"These children face a parent's
deployment and all the possibilities that
accompany that not to mention just
being separated for long periods of
time." Hecox said. "We can be a pres-
ence to help them know\ God and de'el-
op a faith walk with him."
His ision is to start a program on a
base. get it up and running and then
bring another rmssionary couple over to
keep it sustained and crowing. Then
Hecox would like to move onto another
base and get another started up.
"I see this as my strength getting
a good program up and running. I can
manage a program. but it's a challenge
and less enjoyable for me. I believe oth-
ers more qualified can do a better job of
managing and maintaining freeing me
up to move on and duplicate the pro-
gram at another base."


Counres. phoio
Christine and Rob hecox. of Sebring, (center) spend time with Christine's brother
Michael (right) and cousin Miwa (left) at Kumamoto Castle in Kumamoto. Japan.


That is his prayer and dream.


Purposeful steps
Throughout his college years. Hecox
pursued %working with CEF locally
since he \was familiar with the chapter.
While serving as a summer missionary
as a teen, he recalled that the large area
of Polk Counts w'as underserved -
except for one week in the summer
through the Heartland chapter.
With college and training at CEF's


Children' Ministries Institute in
Warrington. Mo. under his belt, Lester
Osbeck. the local director of CEF at the
time, agreed Hecox should start a work
in Polk.
Hecox became the field director in
Lakeland with the understanding that
the directorship would be his in a cou-
ple of )ears. Eventually, they s%%apped
positions and Hecox became director
over Highlands. Hardee and Polk coun-
ties.
He has been with the local chapter

son Christian when he was 6 months old)
on Ihe coast of Okinawa. Japan.

seven years and has been director for
five years.

God-ordered steps
God wea'ed variouss people, ideas.
circumstances and '.isions into Hecox's
life. As he looks back. he is amazed tn
see ho%, God ordered his steps.
For example, at camp as a teenager
he met Da\id Pow'ell. a missionary who
shared ho"\ he was raising support to
go to Germany to work "ith the United
States military.
"This was m) first exposure to ani
ministry to the military, Hecox said.
Some time later, Hecox learned that
Powell had trouble getting onto the
bases and the process was slow\ until he
came across Cadence International. He
forged a good friendship with that min-
istry. They had a program called
Malachi Youth Ministry which supplied
a youth pastor to the base.
When Pow.ell helped the youth pastor
it opened the door for ministry to
younger children. Cadence needed
CEF's expertise to reach younger chil-
dren. CEF needed the clearance
Cadence provided through Malachi's
great reputation to get on the bases.
And. a partnership was formed.
"I had just gotten involved in the
local ministry and, though I knew'
Powell was reaching the military. I had
no idea %'hat had been going on behind
the scenes." Hecox said. "until a friend
mentioned that he'd talked with Powell
and their dream %was to reach the chil-
dren of military personnel in Japan."
Hecox felt himself getting excited
over the idea. He didn't know if God

hits the road again


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
V 's S 'l :h4.'f lJJ- 4I
SEBRING For 16 of their 35 years together
JoNlarie Grinkiewicz traveled in a recreational vehiclee
with her husband Jerry.
His work in the construction trade took them to
every place on the map.
With time to spare, she eagerly filled her journals
with people. places and happenings that occurred on
the road and in campgrounds. She also found time to
%%rite columns and travel pieces for the Chicago Sun.
Miami Herald and the Hartford Currem.
Then they decided to experience traveling in an RV
from a different perspective. She and Jerry pulled their
32-foot A% ion into Camp Florida Keys \\here they both
managed the campgrounds for 10 years. This is where
her stories and characters emerged for the Wanderlust
NM stern Series. It vas from both the view of a full-time
RV traveler and of management that she wrote her first
fictional book.
Her book "Tropical Warnings" is set at a camping
resort in the Keys. Laura Madison has her hands full as
the nianager with an anony mouse erotomaniac stalker.
She hires Da'id Jennings, a charming, sexy private
investigator and martial arts instructor. The list of sus-
pects is large and readers von't discover who it is until
the end. "Tropical Warnings" is a blend of romance and
suspense. mayhem and sizzle, with a peek into the
world of resort management. .
"I'm a writerr with no time. But once while I attend-
ed a writer's conference, I met and had my photograph
taken with well-known author Nora Roberts. That was
such a thrill and encouragement." Grinkievvicz said.
She had managed Francis I Mobile Home Park in
Sebring for the past three years as a licensed communi-


ty manager. She also "%rites the RV Rendezvous col-
umn for the New's-Sun in the Senior Scene magazine.
and is no"% busy writing her next book in the
Wanderlust Mystery Series.
"I liked managing the park and everyone there is
excited for me. They're my groupies. It's always hard
to find the time to w rite, but I carve out four hours each
evening. In addition. I put in an eight-hour day on both
Saturday and Sunday." Grinkie\' icz said. She's a mem-
ber of Mystery Writers of America. The Authors Guild,
Romance Writers of America, Sisters in Crime. and The
International Thriller Writers.
"I'm an RV person. They're fun people, but if you
don't like your neighbor you can al\'ays pick up and
mo'e. It %\as con enient that our dogs could be with us.
and the camps always have a family atmosphere. RVing
is a great way to see the country, to pull o\er whenev-
er you want and enjoy a special spot." Grinkiewicz
said.
Her motto is "Have home, will travel."

Marie Grinkiewicz, at 214-8619 or e-mail her at autho-

California Toe Jam Band performs


at Highlands Hammock State Park


Hundreds of folks enjoyed
last month's "Music in the
Park" concert with Groovus
and special guest Martile
Blackman. Our next concert
\\ill be at 7 p.m. Saturday and
features the wildly popular
California Toe Jam Band.
The name is definitely
unusual, but the music is verN
familiar and judging from our
previous sears. \eri popular.
They will perform '50s. '60s
and '70s oldies tunes that can
be enjoyed b\ the whole family.


Children's Book Week begins
Monday and Children's Library
Assistant Michelle Skyers has some
suggested titles that lean toward the
true meaning of an often food-oriented
November holiday. We begin with a
Caldecott Medal winner, the Rachel
Field book "Prayer For a Child" with
its "universal appeal for all ages and
races," bringing to mind "the deep
responsibility of preserving for all LIBRAI
times the faith and hopes of little chil- -
dren." Our theme continues with the Car
popular children's author Patricia Hes
Polacco's paean to a teacher -who
changed her life forever, "Thank You,
Mr. Falker," and her story about the neighbor
boys and herself who loved their gramma enough
to find a way to thank her for what the\ called
"Chicken Sunday."
Lynn Plourde's book "Thank You, Grindpa"
was her tribute to her Pepere, which she read at
his funeral. Lynn lets us in on a beautitul secret
all children need to know, that of saying "thank
you and good-bye" to creatures around us, and
then to those we love. Chief Jake Swamp
authored "Giving Thanks: A Native American
Good Morning Message." "'an ancient message of
peace and appreciation ot Mother Earth and all
her inhabitants .. from the Si\ Nations -
Mohawk. Oneid.i. Casuga. Onondaga. Seneca.
and Tuscarora."

those special helpers feel if \e don't remember,
and then if \e do remember, to thank them. This
is a good book to begin a discussion about thank-
fulness.
Thzinkfulness leads right into this '\ear's best

Backyard citrus plentiful in South Central Florida


The homeowners here in
South Central Florida are
blessed with weather that is
conducive to growing most
kinds of citrus varieties. Citrus
is subject to frost damage so we
may have a problem once in a
while, but as a rule we make it
through the winter with little
trouble. Properly maintained
trees will usually supply us with
ample fruit.
Sweet oranges and grapefruit
are the main types grown by
most homeowners and they are
consumed as juice or eaten in
some form. Other types grown
to a lesser degree are specialty
fruits like tangerines and tan-
gerine hybrids and acid types
like lemons and limes.
Hamlin is an early sweet
navel orange; if you have room
you may want to put in a mid-
season variety such as
Pineapple or Midsweet or the
late season variety Valencia. If


you have all three maturities
planted you will have oranges
from early November to July.
The second most popular
type of citrus is the grapefruit.
The white fleshed Duncan and
red-fleshed Redblush and
Flame are the most common.
Duncan has great quality, but
has seeds while the red-fleshed
varieties are seedless.
Some mandarins and tanger-
ine varieties are grown utilizing
varieties such as Dancy,
Robinson (requires pollinator)
and Ponkan. Mandarin or tan-
gerine hybrids are often
referred to as oranges. Temple
and Honeybell are both tanger-
ine hybrids. The Temple is a
tangor (cross between a tanger-
ine and a sweet orange) and the
Honeybell or Minneola tangelo
is a cross between a tangerine
and a grapefruit and yields bet-
ter with a pollinator. I have a
Honeybell and really enjoy the


quality.
The recommended
lime varieties for this j
area are the Tihiti
Persian lime and the
West Indian or Key
lime. The Meyer
lemon (orange/lemon
hybrid) is the best
lemon variety,
although it is not a true
lemon.
Some varieties are
susceptible to certain
insects and diseases
requiring frequent
spraying, however in
many cases, when there


GROW

SEAS

i...


are


only a few citrus trees in the
landscape, they may not require
any pest control. Should you
have a pest problem contact
your nearest Master Gardener
office for more information.
Vigorous nursery trees
should be planted, preferably
those that have been container


M grown. Make sure they
are disease free, espe-
cially with the current
problems we are hav-
ing with citrus cancer
and greening.
Container trees can
be planted any time of
_w year. They should be
set at the same soil line
IING as they grew in the
ON container and be pro-
vided with a basin to
yen hold water around each
-- tree. Water is a must
for establishment of
young trees and they
should be well watered twice a
week for the first month.
Fertilization should start
about .a month after planting.
Use a good general fertilizer for.
citrus trees and apply a half
cupful for the first application
to one-and-one-half pints,
increasing the quantity steadily
all season. For the second, third,


and fourth years, etc. contact
your Master Gardener office for
a schedule. It would be good to
take a soil sample to the county
extension office to check the
pH. The optimum pH range
would be 5.5-6.5. If the soil pH
is less than 5.0, the situation
should be corrected by the addi-
tion of dolomitic limestone.
Keep the soil around your


tree weed free out to the drip
line; do not mulch this area as
mulching may cause root rot
problems.

Total Maximum Daily Loads being developed


As some of you may or may
not be aware, new watershed
regulations, called Total
Maximum Daily Loads or
TMDLs, are being developed
for several water bodies in
Highlands County and the rest
of Florida. TMDLs are the state
of Florida's answer to compli-
ance with the Federal Clean
Water Act of 1972, particularly
the parts dealing with non-point
sources of pollution to our sur-
face waters.
Non-point source pollution
comes from many sources as
rainfall moves over the ground
and picks up and carries away
natural and human pollutants.
Some examples include pollu-
tion originating from fertilizers,
septic drain fields, and road
runoff. It is very difficult to pin-
point the origin of non-point
source pollution. When non-
point source pollutants enter
our lakes, rivers, and streams it
is not always through a direct


surface flow discharge (like a
storm drain). This makes it rel-
atively difficult to measure such
sources, and without being able
to measure them, it is very diffi-
cult to get the parties responsi-
ble to clean them up. TMDLs
result in regulations put in place
throughout a lake or stream's
Watershed that, for example,
may limit the amount of phos-
phorus containing fertilizer that
can be used for a golf course or
residential lawn in order to
reduce the total amount of
phosphorus 'that is "loaded" to
that water-body.
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection is in
charge of enacting these rules to
protect our lakes and streams.
Another difficulty that the
FDEP is faced with is proving
that a lake or stream is impaired
- they simply do not have
enough data to decide if a lake
is polluted, and what it is pol-
luted with. A lot of folks famil-


iar with water quality ''
F-
monitoring programs
in Florida would note *.-
that FDEP must not
be using data collect-
ed by the Florida
Lakewatch program,
and ask why FDEP
isn't using those
excellent data.
The Lakewatch NEW
database is used by T
many groups, includ-
ing FDEP, and is a WATE
tremendous asset to -
all state, regional and Jennife
local water resource
managers, lake
homeowners associations, edu-
cational institutions, consult-
ants, and the general public.
However, item (5) of Section
1004.49, Florida Statutes (the
section that describes the struc-
ture and activities of the
Lakewatch program) states that
Lakewatch data "shall in no
instance be used in a regulatory


H

;R
Ell

er


proceeding." This
prevents these data to
be used in certain
phases of the TMDL
process.
Lakewatch data
can be used to docu-
ment long-term water
quality trends and to
compile the planning
FROM list of impaired water
E bodies. Lakewatch
data also can be used
SHED to assess nutrient or
contaminant loads to
Abbey lakes and in model-
""- ing of lake function
to calculate TMDLs.
In summary, the primary lim-
itation in use of Lakewatch data
is that these data may not be
used to develop the final (veri-
fied) list of impaired water bod-
ies for TMDLs or for the basis
of enforcement actions.
Lakewatch data is extremely
valuable and represents the
largest single source of lake


water quality sample data in
Florida.
As far as County Lakes
Management is concerned,
Lakewatch data are invaluable
- they are the only tools that
we have for identifying, over
several years, negative and pos-
itive trends in water quality. We
are deeply indebted to all the
volunteers in Highlands County
for their tireless work helping
us to protect and preserve our
lakes.
The information for this arti-
cle was provided by Clell Ford,
Highlands County Lakes
Manager. The lakes program is


part of the Highlands Soil and
Water Conservation District
and County Natural Resources
Department, located in the
Highlands County Agri-Civic
Center in Sebring.

JAPAN
Continued from IC

was calling him to this but
threw the idea out to his w ife
to see '.hat she thought.
Perhaps the) could consider it
some daN.
Christine is a teacher. She
had been burn in Korea but
raised as a military child in
Japan. \\ hen he mentioned it
to her. she was open having
always thought it %would be
interesting to teach in a
Department of Defense school
in Japan.
"Though the idea appealed
to us. %we weren't ready .set for
several reasons." Hecox said.

Preparation steps
Hecox knewr God had called
him to get the Polk County
work up and running: Christine
was teaching in the classroom
and loving it: and, they had
debt that needed clearing
before even considering such
an idea.
Then, four Nears ago. Hecox
attended his first international
conference for CEF (which
only occurs ever\ three years).
Powell was there.
"Since I'd only heard about
the Japan vision second hand,
this was my opportunity to
learn more details."
Powell formally) presented
the Cadence and CEF partner-
ship to the general public.
After seeing the promotional
video and talking with Powell.
I sensed God really leading me
to pursue it. Powell \was excit-
ed.
But Heco, knew that it
%would be another four to five
years That was 2001.
Po\well wasn't deterred and
told Hecox that they would be
pray ing for them.
"A-. I sat there in the back as


This is the entrance to Yokosuka Naval Base in Japan. which may be
the base Rob Hecox will be working.


other people spoke, I prayed
that God would put it on
Christine's heart and that she
would approach me not the
other %way around. I knew I
didn't want to be excited about
it and have her sa. yes and
someda\ resent me for it."
Suddenly his cell phone
buzzed and he left the auditori-
um to take the call. It %\as
Christine and she chatted a
while and then suddenly asked.
"What about that idea to go tic
Japan?"
Hecox couldn't believe his
ears. So they decided to get the
ball rolling and see %\here it
look them. They needed to
start planning. getting applica-
tions in and thinking about
support. The\ shared their
hopes with family and friends:
got out of debt and put one
foot of preparation in front of
the other to be read \\ hen the
time came.
It so happens that Hecox has
a brother in Okinawa While
attending his wedding, he con-
tacted the local Cadence mis-
sionary on the island. That was
about two Nears ago. He toured
the base and sa\\ the rmnistry.
When he returned home he


contacted the main headquar-
ters of Cadence in Englewood.
Colo. That's when he learned
that Pov\ell wasn't in Germans
an. more.
"The military really liked his
programs and he %%as brought
back to the States to de elop
programs on U.S. military.
bases here and abroad. He's
nov\ the director of Malachi
Children's Ministry," Hecox
said.
The day Hecox made his
call. he said that Powell said,
"'Rob, I have to tell you I just
came out of a meeting and our
discussion was about Asia and
Japan. \\e agreed to pray for
our first couple for Japan. TheN
are not going to believe this."
Their ', vision is to be on
every base in mainland Japan
and Okina\wa.

Cadence. CEF a hit
Though this is a ground
floor ministry that's just getting
started, the potential is huge.
The Cadence and CEF partner-
ship has been a hit on military
bases.
The chaplains ha\e been

SEBRING Rob Hecox's
beginnings with Child
Evangelism Fellowship started
some time ago %when he "as
only 2-years old
Born in Massachusetts 30
years ago. he accompanied his
Mom w\ho taught Good News
Clubs %with the local Child
Evangelism Fellow ship chapter.
"By the time 1 w\as three, I'd
heard the gospel presentation
enough times to realize I %want-
ed to gi\e my heart to Jesus and
I did that on mv own at home
one day. But it was because of
w hat I had learned at the Good
Nesw s Clubs.
He is the son of Jim and
Maureen Hecox \\ho moved
their family to Sebring in 1986.
His sister, Marcia, served with
CEF's summer missions pro-
gram. Christian Youth in Action
for a couple of \ears. When he
was 12. he got involved and
attended junior training in St.
Petersburg and helped out for
two \ears as a junior summer
missionary.
Then he completed senior
training at Clearwater Christian
College his first introduction
to the college he would later
attend after graduating from


Heartland Christian School. By
the time he was ready to go to
college, he had been involved
w ith CEF for six Nears.
He started out as a business
major since his scores in math
were high. He did well but
hated it. A spiritual emphasis
week during his second semes-
ter changed his course when a
speaker emphasized that a per-
son can't surrender to a min-
istry if he hasn't surrendered to
whatever God %\ants him to do.
"I realized I had never made
that commitment. When I did. I


recognized almost immediately
that I had to change major and
follow my first love reaching
children through CEF."
He \sas advised to major in
church ministry which gave
him a broad overview of the
church including the pastorate,
youth and children ministries.
Excitement returned.
"When I committed mN heart
to whatever God had for me, I
realized my original goal of
financial success didn't com-
pare with doing \what God
%wanted me to do."

important to accomplish min-
istry there as it is difficult for
churches to get clearance to get
on base and do programs.
When Hecox visited bases in
Japan. one of the chaplains
said they'd love to start mid-
week Bible studies for couples:
but. because there isn't any -
thing available for the children.
the couples can't come. He
was told he would be wel-
comed with open arms because
he'd be solving a problem for
them.
Also. the commanders of
bases get a better rating when
the. can provide positive pro-
grams for the families.
Whether religious or non-reli-
gious, it creates a better envi-

Chamber music featured at college


Courtesy photo
Andrea Anderson performed at South Florida Community College
last Sunday.


Two more concerts
being scheduled
By KATHY GRANT
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK The audi-
ence sat, tapping its feet,
inspired by merry music on the
harpsichord, played by Andrea
Anderson as part of the South
Florida Community College
Chamber Series.
"My favorite instrument to
play is the piano, because it's
like the best car you can drive.
Instead of the Model-T or rid-
ing a horse, it's like a driving a
Corvette," said Anderson, fol-
lowing the concert.
In the intimate setting of the
SFCC University Center'
Auditorium, Anderson present-
ed "From Harpsichord to
Grand," which traces the devel-
opment of the grand piano from
its embryonic stages the
clavichord to the harpsi-
chord and the fortepiano.
Chamber music, according to
series coordinator Doug
Andrews, is usually of a classi-
cal nature that's one performer
per part in a small group setting.
The first in Anderson's pres-


entation was the clavichord,
created roughly around the
Middle Ages. Its inventor,
explained Anderson, must have
been thinking of an easier way
to play a guitar. The wooden
keys extend to the string
touched at the end by a brass
piece. It creates a delicate sigh
barely heard above the rustling
of skirts.
The harpsichord, continued
Anderson, followed the clavi-
chord in later years, only it was
more complicated and had two
keyboards that produced a loud-
er sound. A feather quill inside
of the wood strikes the strings.
Anderson demonstrated by
Wolfgang A. Mozart a piece on
the fortepiano, a cousin much
closer to the grand. The wood
pieces, called hammers, are sur-
rounded by leather.,
Then came a real treat.
Anderson loosened up and
demonstrated her expertise on
the concert grand piano with
music by Sergei Rachmaninoff.
Frederic Chopin and Franz List.
to. name a few. With an audi-
ence that leapt to their feet, she
played encore .pieces on each of
the instruments including an
animated ragtime on the grand.


'Chicago:' A hot time in that toddlin' town


By ROYRIEDY
Special to the News-Sun
Notwithstanding the black
and white costuming and decor,
Highlands Little Theater's Jet
Hanson's dichromatic vision of
Kander and Ebb's criminally
delightful musical "Chicago"
crackled with the gusto of a
blazing volcano. The acting,
music, dancing, and overall
effect of Hanson's direction
was a slick and saucy way to
open the Little Theatre's 33rd
season and bodes well for an
exciting year of undiluted the-
atrical fun.
The story of Roxie and
Velma's search for fulfillment is
a tale of all the things that puts
the pulp in fiction and lcaveq
'it's heroines well shaken b\ flate
and fortune during the Roaring
'20s in the town that Billy
Sunday could not shut down..
Melanie Boulay and Jennifer
Reed as Roxie and Velma are
truly extraordinary in their roles
as they greet life with an insou-
ciance and optimism that is
credible and compelling.
Boulay and Reed are beauti-
fully supported by Jerry Pollard
whose smarmy Billy "All I
. Care About" Flynn, is the
ABA's worst nightmare come
true; Ellen Lemos' Matron
"When You're Good To Mama"
Morton; sashays again through
another triumphal role; and
Christopher Hayes' Amos
"Mister Cellophane" Hart,
defines the meaning of a sad
and disillusioned man.
Amanda Hanson, as Mary
Sunshine, the investigative
reporter, keeps the audience in
suspense, and the six Girls of
Murderess Row, Jennifer
Westergom, Jennifer Buchanan,
Andrea Hardy-Stanford, Anna
Lang, Stephanie Murphy, and
Sarah Pelham, tangoed beauti-
fully in their cell block but I

SFCC hosts reception for landscape artist


Robert Butler's
second collection
on display
Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Florida
artist Robert Butler, one of the
best known landscape painters
in Florida, will be honored at a
reception hosted 6:30-8 p.m.
Thursday at the Museum of
Florida Art and Culture at South
Florida Community College's
Highlands campus.
The event is free and open to
the public.
In addition to the retrospec-
tive collection of Butler's
works now on exhibit at the
museum gallery, guests can see
a second collection known as
the American Heritage Series.
This series of nine paintings
represents a collaborative effort
by Butler and portrait artist
James Lamar. "
The American Heritage
Series explores the Choctaw
and African heritage of May
Bell Gary, through which two
cultures became one. The paint-
ings are divided into focal
points that reflect the two cul-
tures and provide an intriguing

spective of Butler's paintings accompanies the series. The public is
invited to see the tiuo exhibits at a reception for Butler. 6:30-8 p.m.
Thursday at the museum. The event is free and open to the public.


\ie\\ of the American "melting
pot." Silas GarN. son of Ma\
Bell Gary. commissioned
Lamar to paint the portraits and
Butler to paint the landscapes
around them.
Butler %%ill discuss both
exhibits as %\ell as his upcom-
ing book biographN. Also
scheduled to be present are
members of Butler's family .
\\ho are becoming artists in


their o\ n right. Guests \\ill be
invited to listen to Butler's pre-
sentations. share refreshments,
and ask questions of the Butlers
and museum staff.
The exhibit of Butler's work
includes samples of his earl\
\%ork dating back to the '60s. as
%\ell as later works s covering the
main styles of his career that
depict not onl\ Florida land-
scapes but also Cracker co\\-


boys. Some work in the Butler
exhibit is offered for sale.
Butler is part of the Florida
art tradition now known as "the
Highwaymen." Beginning in
the mid-'50s, a group of
African-American artists from
the Fort Pierce area began
painting landscapes and selling
them along the roads for as little
as $35. Today some of their
paintings sell for thousands of
dollars.
Butler was bom in 1943 in
the small timber and farming
community of Ba.xle\, Ga. His
first four years were spent with
his parents, in a lov cabin that he
fondlI remembers as an envi-
ronment that perfectly reflects
his. African-Cherokee heritage.
In 1947, events brought
\oung Robert to Okeechobee.
On the shores of the Big Lake,
in the heart of Florida's back-
countrr. Butler developed a
fanfiliarit \"ith the '\oods and
katers that are so honestly ren-
dered in hi pamintln Butler is
an artist tutored b\ nature itself.
His professional career began
in 196S. Butler honed his skills
b\ pushing the limits of his
artistic talents. accumulatine a
\ast amount of knowledge and
creating more than 100 paint-
ings a \ear. \\ith no form.:l
training to facilitate an inherent
artistic spirit. Butler developed
a style no\\ kno% n \orldlide
as "the Butler stle," e\emph-
fied b\ a dramatically lit and


romanticized portrayal of the
landscape.
In 1999, Butler was quoted as
saying: "For mans ,ears, I'\e
lived close to nature and wit-
nessed the beauty my privileged
eye has been allowed to see As
an artist, it is important to me to
share my experiences, and
' hene' ei I \uork. it is the larger

rience in the same waN. The tex-
tured tapestrn\ e call reality is

History Lesson
35 Years Ago
Nov. 11. 1971: Sebring fell
to Clewiston 26-6 as the
season drew to a close.
The game was played with
rain falling throughout,
with the Tigers scoring 20
of their 26 points in the
first half. Sebring's offen-
sive woes continued in a
1971 campaign that lacked
consistency at quarterback.
Only 35 yards through the
air crippled a Sebring
attack that was forced to
stay on the ground as the
rain hit its highest point of
intensity during the second
period.

Blue Streaks not

SEBRING The start to the 2006-07

Blue Streaks, but at least Friday night's 1-

However, alter opening the season w ith

Blue Streaks didn't seem pleased as time

Neither team could man- Sebrng

instead of drives. .
Carl Belcher, Sebring's
talented, goalkeeper, was angry after the
match, but the senior did all he could do
after making several acrobatic saves and a
dozen more he made look routine.
The Blue Streaks finally got a ball past
All-Saints' goalie Mark Kaylor during the

scored an unassisted goal from in front of
the net.

Sebring got the passing
game going on the next pos-
session %when Wilson hit Sam
Robinson for a pair of big
gains and Tras is Overstreet for
an 8-Nard pass to move the ball
into the red zone. As the clock
wound dow n, Wilson dove
over the left tackle on the goal
line to tie the game at 14 going
into the locker room.
The Poly Prep defense came
out to start the second half
fired up, stopping the Streaks
on a three-and-out. After a
Sebring punt, Joseph Jr. took
the ball on another long scam-

Fishing weed

beds can be a

real challenge
Weed beds are great cover
for largemouth bass. but fish-
ing a %weed bed can really get
frustrating. It's even more
frustrating when they are real-
ly thick and matted. Every
time we retrieve wve reel in a
large gob of weeds. So hat
do we do? Most of us move to
more open water and never
learn to fish these %weedy
patches.
Weed beds attract the small
aquatic life that bass thrive on.
so this is where you'll find the
larger bass that you want to
put in your boat. You may
never catch that trophy unless
you learn to fish the weed
beds.
Bass will work the open
water early in the day until the
sun rises a little higher in the
sky. They don't care for the
bright sunlight, so they move
to the cover under the mat of
weeds.
Bringing them out of the
heavy weeds means going to
large lures such as big plastic
worms or a jig with a big. fat
trailer. A noisy lure. one
loaded with noise malkng shot,
may be more productive as it
helps the bass find your offer-
ing.
If fishing a worm, try a larg-
er one 10 inches or more -
and peg that sinker. Larger
bass like larger baits and the
smaller bass won't be tempted.
A weedless spoon with a pork
or soft trailer is an excellent
choice in and over weed beds.
Fish the holes in the weed
bed by pitching a lure to the
hole. Let it sink to the bottom.
then shake or jiggle it a few
times. This method will very
often result in a strike. Bass
w ill cruise the edges of weed
beds trying to flush out small
bait fish hiding in the cover.
Fishing those edges of weed
beds is a must. This is a good
place to use shallow runners or
even top-water baits like small
Rapalas or other minnow-type
lures. Larger bass lurking in

BOWL
Continued from 1D
Florida heat.
Sebring stuck to the running
game and relied on Wilson's
legs. A 50-yard touchdown run
brought the crowd to life, and
after a blocked extra point, the
Streaks were down 21-20.
Poly Prep wouldn't score
again as Jamaa Massaline,
Orlando Howard, Devarius
Dawkins and the rest of the
Blue Streak defense shut down
the Blue Devil running game
and avoided giving up the big
play.
Wilson's biggest pass of the
day came on a 61-yard comple-
tion to Robinson, who dashed
to the sideline and took it in for
the. score.
The Sebring defense. stuffed
the Blue Devils on their next
drive again, and the Streaks
took over looking to drive-
home the final nail in the coffin.
Speedster Willie Lowe was the
hammer who bashed his way

I..._ _, 1 1" .. K


into the end zone to cap a
seven-play, 65-yard drive to put
the game away.
It was the finishing touch to
an up-and-down season the
Streaks were fortunate enough
to enjoy.
"I think the heat was bother-
ing us a little, too," said coach
Jared Hamlin after the game.
"In the second half, we played
football the way we're capable
of playing. That's four (wins) in
a row. That's the way to end a
season."
* Wilson was every bit as
grateful to have one more shot
at glory.
"I thought they were very tal-
ented. I really loved it," said
Wilson of his chance to play
against the big-city boys from
Gotham. "I've never played a
team from out of state like that
before. The sportsmanship was
great. I know this was my last
year, but if I could go.back, I'd
play again with the same guys.
We really stuck together this
year."


Sebring's Kyle Hoffner lowers his head as a Poly Prep d
es in Saturda3.

was pressuring the Saints" goal
area. Several ttmes the Streaks
strung together passes and had
scoring opportunJties, and near-
ly added a second goal during
-the 37th minute of plai %hen
speedy freshman forward Buck
Schroder got off a long rocket
shot that missed'the goal by-a
w hisker.
Sebring '(0-2-1) kept it
momentum going earl in the
second half and appeared to
score a goal during the 43rd
minute %when Joe\ Lezama fed a;
perfect pass to Schroder. who
sent the ball past Kaylor.The
official disallowed the goal and
a Sebring player was gi\en a
yellow\ card. Lezama \as called
for a foul, but it h appeared
Kaylor was the one who came
out for the hit.
That play seemed to take the
-wind out of Sebring's sails and
All-Saints, a private school in
Winter Haven, avoided starting
the season with a defeat when
little forward Kevin Fowler
scored on a defensive miscue
that gave Belcher little chance
at making a save, tying the
match during the 53rd minute.
The Saints put on a lot of
pressure late in the match, but
.Belcher denied all shots;
including two sensational grabs
during the final three minutes.
Nobod\ a s more frustrated
with Sebring's effort than head
coach Paul Brown, who was
already planning Monday after-
noon's practice before he left
the field.
"What can I say, we were
rubbish," Brown said after the
match. "We couldn't put two
passes together. We were like a
Y.M.C.A. team."
Brown then broke into a poor
rendition of the Village
People's 1970s song "YMCA"
that w\as about as good as his
Streaks' play was. But the play-
ers ha\e heard him sing the
song before, and had to agree

cooler.
Keeping in mind, beneath
this matted layer. the weeds
grow in verticall columns with:
plenty of open space for those
big old bass to roam in search
of prey. When a lure drops
down through a hole in the
mat, it floats right down into
his more spacious forage area.
Huge bass are often caught
under the thick top mat of
weeds by dropping a large wild
shiner through the mess to the,
more open space below. Big,
bass are also taken by fishing
large wild shiners along the
edge' and allowing themin t
swim freely under the needs.

Some of these mats can be
hard to fish. There is one bait
that %works better than most
when it really gets tough, how-
ever. The snag-proof frog can
climb over and around most
an' thing on top of the mat.
Toss it to open water and drag
it onto the mat, cra\ I and.hop
it oxer the weeds and through
the holes and watch out for the
ensuing explosion. .
It is best to have a few extra
snag-proof frogs in the tackle
box. A good dav for the bass
can be a bad da\ for the frogs.

Port Charlotte goal Friday night.


INCHES
Continued from ID
the Pirates to a 2-0 halftime
lead.
"The. were a little tired and
still on their high from last
night and t.ing Mulberry.
which is something we' e real-
ly reallN wanted to do." Lake
Placid coach Elizabeth Sottile
said.
The Dragons had several
good runs at the Pirates" net. but
the Port Charlotte 16-2j
defense. led b. Kerra Bray. \\as
always there to cut the ball off.
Fucshofen added her second
goal just oxer eight minutes
into the second half to seemine-
Il put the game away tfor the
Pirates. but the score instead
seemed to( wake the Dragons
up.
Just two nunutes later. Lopez
got a nice centering pass from
Maria Garza and found the net
to make it 3-1. In the 53rd
minute. Lopez put the Dragons
right back into the game when


she got past Salvaggio who
had come out to try to cut off
her breakav. ay and failed -
and found the empty net for a 3-
2 score.
NMaribel Garza played solid
defense for the Dragons in the
second half. turning away se%-
eral Pirates' threats, and goal-
keeper SydneN Stewart stopped
the shots that did make it
through, but the Dragons could-
n't 2et manv chances on the
other end. either.
After Maria Garza's shot off
the crossbar. the Dragons' last
threat to Salvaggio came %when
Erica Resendiz got a run down
the left side. but couldn't get a
clear shot.
Despite the loss. Sottile was
pleased that her squad battled
back after falling so far behind
earl% in the match.
"Alejandra was excellent.
Maria had a few% close calls and
Sydney is doing so %wonderful
a> our goalie this year." she
said. "She's really stepped up
and improved from last year."
