Florida students are in seri-
ous trouble Their schools rank
at the bottom of just about
every category N hen compared
to othltl states.
Teacher salary, classroom
size, graduation rate, and dol-
lars spent per student are all
se'eiel lacking.
Legislators have made prom-
ises and set timetables for
improvements, but Carla Rice,
chairperson of the I Pledge
campaign of Highlands County,
has said they still don't fund
education like thei.should.
I Pledge is a commitment to


Florida's public schools.
It is a simple form mndi\idu-
als can fill out to sho\ the new\
governor and legislators that
education in Florida is an
important issue and should be
funded appropriately .
The pledge has four main
points. Better funding for pub-
lic schools from the state level.
reduction of class size. more
compeititie wages for teachers
and support staff, and to get rid
of the voucher program.
Florida schools funding from
the state level is ranked 42 of 50
states by the United States
Census Bureau in a study of the
2003 school year.


A-eraging 23 students per

SEBRING The
Kenilworth Boule\ard area
\was the subject of much dis-
cussion at Tuesday's Sebring
Cit\ Council meeting.
One ne\ development
agreement, for Kenilworth
Estates. was quickly approved
after months of discussion.
The MacBeth property
hot ever. which is still in the
early planning stages. \was the
subject of much controllers .
A look at both projects:
Kenilworth Estates
The development agree-
ment for the Kenilw\orth
Estates project \\as unani-
mously approved Tuesday.
The complex \\ill be on 20
acres of property between
Kenil\orth Boule\ard and
Youth Care Lane. The devel-
opers said they plan to break
ground Friday. Dec. 1.
The property will feature
150 \illas. with a recreation
area in the middle. It will be a
gated community with deed
restrictions mandating that the
o\'ners of each \illa cannot
rent out the property.
The property's entrance \\ill
be off Kenilworth Boulevard.
It \will feature si\-foot-wide
sidei\alks along internal roads
and curbs along the entrance
roads. It is designed to be a
source of affordable housing.
CitN council required the,
developers to build a private
park, available to all
Kenilworth Estates residents,
featuring a sw imming pool
and hot tub.The city asked for
the park in part to address con-
cerns that children living on
the property would not have
an\ thing to do.
Kenilworth Estates will not
be subject to the proposed


building ordinance currently
under discussion by the coun-
cil. The ordinance sets out a
minimum building site area of
12.500 square feet. with a
minimum width of 100 feet.
The Kenilworth Estates
developers were able to get
their development agreement
approved under the current
standards because of their
willingness to go along with
certain requests from the city
council. The requests included
the recreation area. sw imming
pool, and the entrance gates.
MacBeth property
Rand MalcBeth is looking
to develop 9.96 acres next to
Youth Care Lane near the
Kenilworth Estates property.
He told council at a public
hearing on Nov. 7 that the ne"\
building site requirements
would make it infeasible for
him to go forward \\ith his
development.
MacBeth's plan is to build a
60-unit duplex neighborhood
for moderate income housing.
His current development plan
calls for 11.200 square-foot.
two and three-bedroom duplex
lots. with a garage. The units
would sell for $145.000.
The council said they would
consider allo\ ing MacBeth to
build according to the current
standards if he agreed to cer-
tain concessions similar to
those of the Kenilworth
Estates property. The conces-
sions included a gated com-
munity. a park and recreation
area for residents, and owner-
occupied units.
But MacBeth said Tuesday
that his plans are different, and
that requests like a gated com-
munity were not feasible for
his property.

New commission


Happy Thanksgiving


to 'Gi

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING Don Bates
replaced Bob Bullard on the
county commission. C. Guy
Maxcy became its chairman.
Barbara Stewart requested
change.
"I want to feel at the end of
the year that I accomplished
more than the everyday items,"
Commissioner Stewart said at
the conclusion of Tuesday's
meeting which included discus-
sion on the capital improve-
ments plan, Lake Denton and
other issues on the agenda.
SStewart said it's important
for the board to set priorities as
a commission, reaching a cOn-
sensus and formalizing its goals
for the year.
It's easy to get bogged down
with day-to-day operations of
the board, she said, asking her
fellow legislators to present
three or four goals at a future
meeting, when the final list
would be shortened to specific
goals by which they could eval-
uate themselves at year's end.
In addition, she challenged
each commissioner to make a
concerted effort to attended all
meetings of organizations to
which they are a liaison, return-
ing with detailed reports for the
commission.
She even joked with Bates,
after welcoming him aboard,


that while the commission may
give him a grace period to come
fully prepared for meetings, his
constituents wouldn't.
Maxcy handed out a list of
current collateral duties, asking
Bates to assume Bullard's
assignments until the list is
revised in the near future.
"Report back in a couple of
weeks and we'll git-r-done," he
said, asking the commissioners
to specify on which committees
they want-to serve.
During the meeting, the
board received three versions of
the Capital Improvements
Plan's financial schedule.
Based on concerns raised by-
Lake Placid resident Ray
Royce, county administrator
Carl Cool recommended that
the county not transfer impact
fee revenue among three dis-
tricts created to administer 'the
program which takes effect Jan.
1.
"We concluded that that
would be stretching the intent
of impact fees," Cool said.
The fees, by state law, are
supposed to benefit those from
whom they're collected with
the creation of expanded infra-
structure.
The proposed capital
improvements plan, which is on
a 10-year schedule, includes a
variety of spreadsheets to
account for a variety of funding


Weed control crew recognized


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Highlands
County Invasive Plant Control
crew was recently awarded
statewide recognition for their
work on county lakes at the
Florida Aquatic Plant
Management Society meeting.
The Florida Aquatic Plant
Management Society. .consist-
ing of 6-3 members state' ide.
is a Society made up to field
- appli'atois, ieed scientists,
agronomists, University profes-
sors and industry representa-


tives.

In an effort to recognize
those working in the field, an
Applicator of the Year award is
presented at the annual meet-
ing. This year a team award was
given to Carl Smith,
Supervisor, Chris Ma3he\\,
..Wesley Williams and Danny
Copeland' for their efforts in
controlling in\asi'e plants on
the counts water r bodies. The
majority of the focus of this
team is on Lake Istokpoga.


sources, which now includes
impact fees which are limited in
how they are used.
"Don't ask me to understand
what's in here," Cool cautioned
the commission, asking them to
review the data they'll discuss
during a public hearing later.
"This is probably four times
more complicated (than it used
to be)."
In one option, the plan
includes an asphalt plant that
reportedly would result in sig-
nificant savings to the county,
which currently relies on a low
bidder to supply the road sur-
facing material.
The financial schedules
assume that impact fees, cur-
rently at 25 percent in all areas
except for schools, will increase
10 percent annually until they
reach 100 percent of Tindale-
Oliver & Associates' recom-
mendation.
In addition to the 10 percent
increases, the impact fees are
also indexed to inflation at a
rate of 5 percent annually to
keep up with projected ,con-
struction costs.
"That may be the administra-
tion's hope but I would like that
eliminated," Stewart said.
Referring to a past statement
by Commissioner Andrew
Jackson that specified impact
fees would not be indexed or
automatically increased, she
said future projections must be
based on what it's in place, else
the board has no basis from
which to make meaningful
adjustments.
Cool concurred, agreeing to
direct the budget office to add a
spreadsheet accounting for.
impact fees that don't increase'
during the 10 year period of the
capital plan.
However, at his suggestion.
Steward agreed that a spread-
sheet ponra. ing revenue at.
higherr impact fee rates iould,
prove useful in demonstrating
what additional projects could
be taken on \ ith more revenue.

Sebring Golf Course to get 12 new carts


By MATT MURPHY
.,.. Si. -. .
SEBRING The Sebring
Municipal Golf Course will
soon be uettini 12 additional
eolf carts.
The Sebring City Council
approved allocating $23,000
from the cit 's general fund to
the Golf Course Enterprise
Fund to pa\ for the new carts.
The money is to be paid back in
18 months
Tom McClurr, the course's
golf pro. told the council
TuesdJa the carts are necessary
to increase revenue during the
peak golf season.
McClurg had expressed con-
cern that the course was losing
revenue by having to turn away
customers due to lack of carts.
According to Jim Higgmls, golf
co7 iur si1periintendent. each cart
produces,$(50 in revenue e\ern
time it's rented.
The golf course currently has
'8 carts, i\hich allo-\s for 116


maximum players at peak
times. The addition of 12 more
carts will increase the number
of players at peak time to 140.
The 22-person increase is.
expected to result in $1,650 in
added revenue per week for the
course. At that rate, it would
take 14 weeks for the golf carts
to, pay for themselves. After the
14 weeks, the additional money
produced by having the carts
will become added revenue for
the course!
McClurg told the council the
course "is in great shape." He
said October and November
saw a 50 percent increase in
players. He hopes the new
restaurant, scheduled to open
Dec. 1, will draw more people
to the course as well.
No% that the motion% \\as
approved. Jim,Higgins. the golf
course superintendent, iillg6'
out to bid for the additional
carts.
Higgins said in a letter to the


city' that a fleet of 3-year-old
carts in "excellent" condition
had been located. The carts,
which have been retired from
Highlands Ridge Golf Club,
can be purchased for $1,900
each.
Also at Tuesday's Sebring
City Council meeting, the coun-
cil accepted the Tree Board's
$149,000 estimate for Island
One in the U.S. 27 North
Gateway plan. The city
received a $175.000 grant from
the Florida' Department of
Transportation to construct a
plan for improving the U.S. 27
entrance into the city.
Island One is north of the
U.S. 27-Sebring Parkway inter-
section. According to the plan,
the island \ ill feature ten single
, trunk crepe myrtle trees and
seven date palm trees.,
The landscape plan \vas
accepted and city staff will now
seek bids for the project:

SFCC's new Educator

Preparation Institute launches

with 22 student teachers

L ee .rbelo. cf Lake

adults from all w\alks
of life taking their
first steps into kindergarten
through 12th grade classrooms
in public schools across
Highlands. DeSoto and Hardee
counties.
The future teachers. mem-
hers of the first Educator
Preparation Institute of South
Florida Conmmuniti College.
can become certified profes-
sionals m time for the start of
school next Auoust.
All of the future teachers,
already ha\e bachelor's
degrees in \a.i ing areas of
eperuse. The\ represent
diverse baickgrounds \'ith real
life experience and a \wide mi\
of 'work experience.
But these student teachers
share a common dream: To fol-
lo\ their hea'ls and become
their future students' favorite
;and most ettect\e teacher.
Once till\ certified, there is
no doubt the new teachers will
find jobs. SFCC's EPI is one of
2S set up in community col-
leges across Florida to help
offset the projected 211.1)OO00
teacher openings anticipated
across Florida through the ne\t
Ii '.ears
State occupational gro\\ t
st.atistcs project teachers ill
make up four of SFCC's three-
coiiunt\ er' ice district's top 10
lobs requiring college degrees:
elementary teachers i first sec-
o!ndiu\ teachers i second i. mid-
dle school teachers i third. and
kindergarten teachers i 10th i.
For the 2i0)i6-i0- school Near.
Highlands Counts had to hire
150 new\ teachers, and Hardee
and DeSoto counties each
hlred more than 50. Authorities

shortage to a surge in students.

and Florida's 2002 constiru-
nonal amendment limiting
classroom lsize
Arbelo. 23. of Lake Placid.
hopes to be part of the solu-
tio'n.
Though the recent computer
science graduate had never
given much thought to becom-
nlli; a teacher, it seems Arbelo's
friends had recognized that he
was a gre.lt tltor. The\ \'ere
alv\ a\s asking him to explain
niathematics.
-\s he progressed though
his college dei'ee. it eraduall\
daw\ ned on \rbelo that he did-


n't want to spend all his time
in front of a computer. "By the
time I graduated. I'd lost inter-
est in the field." Still. he
enijoed math. He always did.
So as he approached gradua-
tion. he began developing an
interest in teaching.
Arbeloh' only experience
\with teaching was teaching
martial arts to children aged 6-
8. At the time. Arbelo w\ as only
12 himself.
"I have a passion to \work
with people. to help others. I
enjo\ i working one on one %with
people." he said.
What clinched it for him
\as the experience he had this
surnmer tutoring his sister in
math. About the same time. "I
saw an ad in the newspaper,"
Arbelo recalled. He attended
an orientation session at SFCC.
".and I liked what I heard. MNh
dad went with me."
Arbelo signed up. Because
he's a recent transplant to
Florida from Ne\\ Jersey.
Arbelo isn't working, so
attending Saturday sessions
isn't as challenging as it is for
most other students in his
classes.
It's a far crN from his sched-
ule up north. \\here he not only
attended school but \%as work-
ing t\o jobs. "NMy grades
reflected that." he admits. He's
noM\ focused solel\ on his
SFCC classes.
Arbelo figures the teacher
shortage guarantees that he'll
soon be workingg a stead\ job.
no matter how insecure the job
market becomes.
"The benefits \\ill be good.
but mostly. I'll get to \work
\ ith people It's a bonus: bene-
fits and job security."
Arbelo has no doubts he'll
be a popular teacher "I w\as
always the class jester. I' e
always been the one to rein-
force a positi e atmosphere
\here'er I am. I support peo-
ple. I try to bring out the good
side of people."
He wants to teach middle
school math a critical sub-
ject at a critical grade le\el.
"I want to make math enjoy-
able again." Arbelo said. "So
man\ people hate been crip-
pled with calculators Maih's
gotten a bad rap.
"I remember ha\ ing a math
teacher w\ho had a degree in
computer science Just like
me. He \was an excellent
teacher. If I'd slack off a little.
he kept on me. I think he rec-
ognized something in me."


THE NEXT


Arbelo's father supports his
son's ne\\ career path. After
all, Dad taught special educa-
Lion for 25 years. "Seeing and
know ing \w hat he'd done for
the kids he taught \\as an inspi-
ration to me." Arbelo said.
State education authorities
expect such alternative certifi-
cation programs to help alle\ i-
ate Florida's critical shortage'
of high\ -qualified teachers.
Students like Arbelo get not
just an alternative but an accel-
erated menu of course work
needed to meet the state's pro-
fessional education require-
ments Students can complete
the program in as little as 10
months. Once certified.
SFCC's EPI graduates can take
jobs any\ here in Florida.
Any adult with at least a
bachelor's degree may be eligi-
ble for training. The\ do not
ha\e to be employed as a
teacher, or even have a teach-
ing background. Prospective
students. ho"\e'er, have to be
prepared for a fast-paced but
flexible program that accom-
modates working or parenting
adults.
SFCC's EPI students can
sign on anytime. The series of
seven classes start nearly every
month, and are specifically
designed to be taken in any
order. Typical EPI core classes
are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday s at the main campus
in Avon Park, although addi-
tional hours are completed as
Internet assignments.
The program includes two
fieldwork experiences consist-
ing of 30 contact hours of
observation in local schools.
SFCC's program started in
September.
"Students must be ver\ com-
mited to the program and must
attend and participate in e\er\
class session." Colleen Rafatti.
EPI program coordinator, said.
The classes are designed to
be practical and emphasize
small-group interaction tailored
to each student's interests.


Coucrie;, phaoh
Lake Placid transplant Lee Arbelo. an affable computer science
graduate whose personality lends himself to working more with peo-
ple rather than computers. is part of South Florida Community
College's first student teachers enrolled in the college's Educator
Preparation Institute. The institute was specifically created to put
career-changers and others with bachelor's degrees on the fast track
to becoming certified teachers in Florida public schools.


Each student also completes a
series of projects for his or her
personal teaching portfolios.
Much of the EPI curriculum
at SFCC emphasizes e\eryday
"sur ival skills." mastery of
instructional practices, and the
importance of di\ersity and the
needs of special populations.
The specific topics covered
include assessment, communi-
cation, continuous impro\e-
ment. critical thinking, diversi-
ty. ethics, human development
and learning, learning environ-
ments. planning, role of the
teacher, and technology.
Courses also include field
experience, instructional strate-
gies, classroom management,
professional foundations, read-
ing, and specific \workshops in
career planning and test prepa-
ration. All classes are led by
expenenced teachers or admin-
istrators in the K-12 en\ iron-


ment in Florida schools.
The EPI hopes to serve
career changers, displaced
workers, early retirees, veter-
ans. parents returning to the
workforce, or simply people
looking to make a difference.
Prospective teachers must
pass three separate exams: one
demonstrating general knowl-
edge. one showing know ledge
in a specific area. and the pro-
fessional education exam. The
EPI program primarily focuses
on the third.
The EPI hosts a monthly
informal orientation at the
Highlands campus on a
Thursday night. For orientation
dates or specific program infor-
mation. phone Rafatti directly
at 784-7403. or e-mail her at
Raul;utic@' souilflor-ida.edu.
The program also has a page

A ray of hope for

screening lung cancer


News-Sun, Friday, November 24, 2006


EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


Lessons in etiquette should be taught in schools


I love old books. I have in my
little home library an old book
of poetry that was once my
mother's. As I child I would sit
for hours and read from it,
intrigued by the "stories" and
by the writing style.
Books have always been my
friend so when my 10-year-old
brought an old book home from
a garage sale he went to with
his dad, I gladly accepted it and
added it to my library without
reading much of it. That is,-until
recently.
The other day I picked up the
"Book of Etiquette" and started
skimming the pages. Written by
Lillian Eichler, it was published
in 1921. It didn't take long to
grab my attention.
In the preface, something I
don't always take time to read,
Eichler starts off with "Success
without culture is like old-fash-
ioned strawberry short cake
without the whipped cream. It
has no flavor."
Now, before I go much fur-
ther let me apologize to the
many people out there who take
offense to the fact that in the
World of Journalism, we refer
to people on a second and later
reference by their last name
only. The titles of Mr., Mrs.,
Dr., Rev., or whatever are
dropped. Only on certain occa-
sions will an editor, including
myself, make an exception to
refer to someone by using their
first name after the first refer-
ence.
We journalists, however,
mean no disrespect to the par-
ties of whom we write about.
Back to the book, Eichler
describes etiquette as a "tool
that opens the portals to a
broader life, to a greater social
happiness."


AT RANDOM

Romona Washington

She writes that in observing
etiquette it is "necessary to pay
particular attention to one's
appearance, manner and
speech."
OK, within the first couple of
pages I'm thinking that this
book needs to be introduced to
the school system. The Florida
Comprehensive Achievement
Test and other standardized
tests have taken up too much of
our children's time. Leave the
tests if you must, but let's start
teaching our children includ-
ing my own some manners,
or etiquette if you will.
I have watched students at
the county high schools who do
not meet dress code. The girls
have their bellies or too much
cleavage showing, skirts way
too short and boys with their
britches hanging low on their
waist. It's so bad that one
teacher has been known to dub
an inappropriately dressed stu-
dent at the end of the day as Ms.
Hoochie.
I question why these students
are allowed to make it through
the. whole day of school if they
are dressed inappropriately.
That goes against the Student
Code of Conduct in place at
each of our schools. It's kind of


like the law enforcement having
certain laws in place: If there is
no teeth in the rules, enforce-
ment will go by the way side.
Eichler points out that "every
day people are reading the story
of our characters and ideals"
through our appearance and
manners.
Another pdint that Eichler
makes is- about the control of
impulses. She writes, "The cul-
tured man is never angry, never
impatient, never demonstrative.
... He knows how to control his
emotions so effectively that no
one can read, in his self-pos-
sessed expression, whether he
is angry or pleased, discouraged
or eager."
Again, I'm thinking this is a
lesson that our young people
should learn. Especially this
part about swearing: She quotes
an essayist and philosopher as
having once said, "The superior
man is gentle. It is only the man
with a defective vocabulary that
swears."
Now, ladies, don't think that
Eichler only spoke of men
when it came to. controlling
impulses. She said a genuine
lady should speak low and
never show excitement when
something unexpected happens,
or disappointment because she
didn't get her way.
Eichler talks about rudeness.
She writes that "it makes no
difference how wealthy or how
poor a person is, how ignorant
or educated he happens to be -
as a fellow-being he is entitled
to a hearty sympathy and
respect." Gee, I can think of a
lot of adults who could learn
this lesson.
She talks about intolerance
and the need to be cheerful. It's
like I so often tell my friends


and family, I choose to be
around happy people. I won't
let those who are sour drag me
down. Sure, they may get me
down for a little while, but I
make a concentrated effort to
pick myself up or I choose to be
quiet so that others don't see
that side of me. At least most
times. Remember, I amnhuman
too.
Anyway, these are just some
of the points Eichler makes in
her first chapter. There are two
parts to the book with a total of
15 chapters that touch on things
such as weddings, funerals, cor-
respondence, calls, and parents
and family.
I have no plans for a wedding
or funeral any time soon, but I
do look forward to reading
about the families. If I learn
some interesting things I'll be
sure to share them- with you
another time.
While I am thankful that my
children have more manners
than most, and as my son gets
older he shows an effort to be
more polite, I know that there is
so much more for them to learn.
I encourage them to be around
polite people, knowing that in
time those manners will rub off,
just like the poor behavior does.
I encourage my children to
be around pleasant people, "be
the bigger person." Ask either
one of them and they'll tell you
that's my motto.
Maybe more people should
teach their children to do the
same.

Lung cancer is MAT
one of the most MA
feared cancers, HE
having a signifi-
cantly high mortal- Dr. Denn
ity rate and being
very difficult to
treat. The
American Cancer Society esti-
mates that in 2006 there will be
174,470 new cases and 162,460'
patients will die. The National
Cancer Institute estimates that
annual treatment costs of lung
cancer is somewhere around
$9.3 billion. This figure does
not take into account lost wages
or the individual and family's
pain, suffering, and the funeral
costs of those who die.
The overall five-year sur-
vival rate with treatment is less
than 15 percent, whereas no
treatment will inevitably lead to
death. Whenever possible, ideal
treatment for lung cancer
involves the surgical removal,
of a small tumor. All things
being equal, the smaller the
tumor, the less likely the cancer
will have time to spread. Thus,
early diagnosis is paramount to
survival and to the person hav-
ing a much less difficult treat-
ment course.
For decades physicians have
struggled, trying to find a way
to screen high-risk patients for
this dismal disease. They have
tried using yearly chest x-rays
in smokers, but this method has
never been shown to increase
survival or be cost-effective.
They have also tried using spu-
tum studies, but this method
has not been shown to be effec-
tive either. These findings have
come from reputable organiza-
tions such as The American
Cancer Society, The American
College of Chest Physicians,
The Canadian Task Force, and
The American College of
Physicians.
There is, however, an excit-
ing ray of hope with the publi-
cation of the Oct. 26 scientific
study in the New England
Journal of Medicine. The
authors of this paper looked
into whether or not using chest
CAT scans as a screening tool
in high-risk patients would
make any difference in the
study group's 10-year survival.
The study began in 1993 and
ran through 2005. During this
time 31,567 high-risk patients
were screened with annual spi-
ral CAT scans, and 484 of them
were found to have lung cancer.
Of the 484 with cancer, 412
were at Stage I and their overall
10-year survival rate was a phe-
nomenal 85%. Of these 412
Stage I patients, 302 underwent
surgical removal of the cancer
and had an astounding 10-year
survival rate of 93 percent. In


this study these
ERS OF 412 patients sur-
ALTH vived to 10 years
because of the suc-
is Bassetti cess of this screen-
ing method. Had
they not been
S screened, only 73
\ would be alive at ten years.
: It is clear that improving a 15
percent survival rate to an 85-
93 percent survival rate would
save heartache and misery for
many patients and their fami-
lies, and save many of their
lives. However, as provocative
and exciting s this study is,
more studies will need to be
done before routine CAT scan
screening receives endorsement
from the above academic bod-
ies. Scientists normally wait for
several corroborating studies
that validate the initial one
before formal endorsement.
Also, one needs to take into
account the potential for harm
due to radiation exposure with
each CAT scan, plus the fact
that some patients will have to
undergo invasive testing only to
find out their spot is benign.
Based .upon my review of
this article, I believe this
method will ultimately prove to
save many lives, until someone
comes up with a "final" cure for'
lung cancer. Even though it is
not currently endorsed as med-
ical gospel, I am recommend-
ing an annual CAT scan to my
patients who are at high risk for
lung cancer. My opinion is that
to wait for verification of this
study may doom many patients'
to an unnecessary, premature
death.
Individuals who feel they are
high-risk for lung cancer should
consider discussing this article
with their personal physician to
see whether or not it makes
sense for them. Please remem-
ber that all patients are different
and "one size does not fit all."
Finally, the most prudent
thing to do to dramatically
reduce one's risk of lung cancer
is to quit smoking. (It will also
save you tons of money on cig-
arettes.) There is a new medica-
tion called Chantix that signifi-
cantly increases the smoker's
chance of quitting and another
medicine in the pharmaceutical
Pipeline called Accomplia that
also show promise. Contact
your personal physician to dis-
cuss whether or not these med-
ications might be of benefit to
you.

Kindness really

does matter
Editor:
As I walked from my car into
the grocery store last night, I
came upon a litter of kittens
stranded in the busy parking lot.
I had stopped to get cat food for
my own four cats, two of which
I took in. after they were aban-
doned by neighbors, who had


left them behind when they
moved.
I called Heartland Cat
Rescue, offering a donation to
help with the,-rescue of these
kittens and found out that. they
are already overwhelmed with
cats in need of adoption.
This awful situation can be
changed if more of us will do
something to help. Rescued ani-
mals make loving and loyal


pets.
Heartland Cat Rescue has
more than 50 healthy cats in
need of homes. Please consider
the possibility of giving one of
these poor animals a good
home, so others that are suffer-
ing can be rescued.
For information, call 314-
8832.

'The only way to save journalism is to develop a

new model that finds profit in truth, vigilance and

social responsibility.'

PHILIP MEYER, journalism professor, University of North Carolina, 2004


An invitation to renew a commitment


The church is competing
when it comes to divorce as sta-
tistics revealed that the. mar-
riages of 50 percent of
Christians end in divorce.
The survey, which was con-
ducted by the Barma Research
Group, said that divorce rates
among conservative Christians
were significantly higher than
other faith group, which includ-
ed atheist. However, the
divorce rates among Catholics
was lower overall.
Concerned about this revela-
tion, Pastor Alvin Conner of
Vision Christian Community
Church in Avon Park, has invit-
ed members and non-members
who are desirous of re-dedicat-
ing their marriage to God to


j~tg


attend a ceremony on Saturday,
Dec. 2. The ceremony will be
followed by a reception.
Conner issued this invitation
at a combined Women's Day
Service with Faith Temple
church recently. He said too


many families are being torn
apart by the world's temptation
and there is need for spiritual
intervention, spiritual guidance
and loving support. He said one
of the most difficult emotions to
maintain is love.
Conner is inviting people of
all faith to renew their love for
each other and surrender their
marriages to God.
The Rev. Anthony Jordon of
the Baptist General Convention
in Oklahoma said, "We are
responsible. We are good in
helping young, people plan
weddings, but not in planning a
lasting marriage. And in our
desire to be compassionate to

Continued from 12A
those who are going through a
divorce, the church has watered
down a strong message in
regard to the ills and sins of
divorce."
Donald Huges, author of
"Dance Reality," said, "In
church, people have a view that
Christianity will keep them
from divorce, but they are sub-
ject to the same problems as
anyone else, and this include a
lack of relationship skills ... just
being born again is not a rab-
bit's foot."
He also pointed out that 90
percent of divorces among
born-again couples occurred
after they have been saved.
Distraction in life affects
relationships. It is believed that
whatever happens outside the
bedroom affects what happens
in the bedroom.
Another research raised the


question about the effectiveness
of how churches minister to
families. Ultimately the respon-
sibility for a marriage belongs
to the husband and wife, but the
high incidents of divorce
among Christians challenge the
church to provide practical and
life-changing support for mar-
riage.
The Bible Belt states of
Arkansas, Alabama, Oklahoma,
Tennessee are the top four
states that are 50 percent above
the national average.
United States Census Bureau
shows that Nevada had the
highest divorce rate of 8.5
divorces per 1,000.
Statistics also revealed that
for every three divorces, one
family ends up below the
poverty line. Women and chil-
dren are gravely affected finan-
cially when divorce becomes
final.
Outraged at the crisis affect-
ing marriages, Arkansas
Governor Mike Huckabee


signed a covenant marriage law
that allows couples to sign a
marital contract that would
delay divorce for two years
before a marriage can be dis-
solved. Louisiana and Arizona
have also enacted similar laws.

A dream


come true
In Columbus, Ohio, there
is a garden extravaganza
called the Franklin Park
Conservatory. In 1992,
Columbus celebrated the
Quincentenary with
AmeriFlora (E92, based there
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
AmeriFlora_'92)..
Countries from all over the
world were invited to share
their gardens and cottage
industries with tourists. One
of the most astounding
exhibits was from The Corn
Palace of Mitchell, S.D.
(www cornpalace or?)
AmernFlora \\js show-
cased around the Palm
House, the centerpiece of
Franklin Park /http./'/en.
It ikipedia.oi .'qAiki/Fiwkihn_
Park_Conseroat!(iiy). This
three-storied glass green-
house is graced \t ith palms, a
butterfly garden and exotic
blooming tropical plants.
When the temperatures get
frigid, it'. a mmi-\%acation to
tour through the Palm House
and enjoy the humidity and
smell of turf and mist.
One of the most beautiful
weddings I'\e eter partici-
pated in \as held at the
Consernatory a w eek before
Christmas. There is a long
w alkwtay that connects the
gift shop and tearoom w ith
the Palm House. During the
holidays, this walkwayy i,
lined wnith red and pink poin-
settias The piece de Iesist-
ance is the I15-foot high poin-
settia tree in the center of the
\walk\\ay. Betore you are
able to catch your breath that
\was stolen by the beauty of
this creation. \ou step onto
the balcony\ that leads to the
Palm House I i n .a t-l..rc ns c

Spread out before \ou is a
tropical \\onderland illumi-
nated \\ith \on\e candles
scattered along the footpath
and t% inkling lights in the
boughs of the palm trees. To
our right is a spring quintet
pl.i ing songs of the season
and appropriate bridal music.
Stairs descend from both the
night and the left. You tell the
usher \ou are \with the buide
or groom and are escorted
do\% n the respective correct
start i\ and to :,our seat
next to the stream that flov. s
a\\a\ from the v.aterfall hid-
den amongst the leaves. One
can almost hear the elies
w\hisperng as the guests
gather.
The bridal party then
appears on the balcony ftic-
ine the balcony \ou descend-
ed. This makes it possible for
everyone in the room to see
perfectly The ptoned palms
normally stationed on the
balcon- ha\ e been pushed
back to allo\\ a panoramic
\iew of the attendants, as
\ell ,,s the bride and groom.
The pine garland gracing the
cur\ ing staircase railing cre-
ates a framing effect and one
of the mostt beauttitl i ed-
dings is no'\ a part of holi-

Members provide backup

schools with kindergarten through
eighth-grade students and parent-
teacher relationships.
There's no criteria for volunteering -
whether you're a mom, dad. grandparent, or just
an interested member of the community. And
each PTO represented is as diverse as the people
involved.
Kristi Inabnett is PTO president of Sun 'N
Lake Elementary School in Sebring said. "Our
focus is backup relief for teachers, and rwe need
new people and fresh ideas. As the population
grows, this will increase. We
stress family involvement and O b
that it's not necessary to PTO be
spend money. Anyone can
make a difference, even if parents ir
they only hale one hour to
volunteer." by insuri

which raised $14,000. its you want

Lake has 865 students and is kids.
the largest in the county. The
school even offers a dra\ ing
for a $25 gift certificate to
entice people to attend a Avon Elementary
meeting.
"That's where decisions
are made. They vote on hot\ to spend money."
Inabnett said.
Upcoming- are dhree major requests: A new
sign for the school for $20.000, a new kinder-
garten playground or a mural. "Children need
etery opportunity at this age to be prepared for
the future. I'm doing this not only for my child.
but all the children at SNL. I feel it's a full-time
job with no pay, but great benefits. And it's not
just for stay-at-home moms. We need dads and


grandparents for their viewpoint." Inabnett said.
President Dawn Crosson at Avon Elementary
School in Avon Park feels anybody could be a
volunteer.
"PTO benefits the parents involved by insur-
ing the kind of education you \want for your
kids. It supports the school and boosts morale of
the staff. Our fund-raisers have bought PE
physical education) equipment, computers, etc.
Spring Carnival and our Staff Appreciation
Luncheon are just a fe" of the ways to get
involved." Crosson said.
President Penny Jahna at Park Elementary
School in A\on Park said they always need help
organizing games, setting up, etc. for their Fall
Festival generally organized in October. "Books,
listening centers, and software for classrooms
and labs have been purchased as a result of
fund-raisers. One grandparent was a DJ disc


jockey) for our Bookathon
Walk. Men are always a great
help for setting up large
items. By attending PTO. you
can have a say. Be there."
Jahna said.
President Amoni Huber at
Lake Placid Middle School
will need lots of volunteers
for its Dragon Footprints Sale
and Teacher Appreciation
Week. Its fund-raising efforts
ha\e provided books for the
Accelerated Reader program
with quizzes that keep track
of a student's reading.
"PTO lets you know
what's going on. You feel a


part of it. My kids know I care and that makes
them feel good. My \olunteering sets an exam-
ple for my kids how to be involved." Huber
said.
President Lillian Todd at Fred Wild

Chriins faint three seasons


Christians fall into three seasons


Christians have a remarkable
power. A divine power. We have
access to God himself. He's not
a jeanie in a bottle just waiting
to grant our three wishes. He
isn't a leprechaun that is riddled'
with religious mystery to be
discovered so you can get your
pot of gold.
God is a Father. God is wait-
ing for you to come to him with
a deep desire and intent to
develop a relationship with
him. He wants you to love him
intensely. He wants your heart.
He wants your life.
With this relationship comes
a great power. And if you've
watched the first "Spiderman"
movie, you know that with
great power comes great
responsibility.
-- .. But really;, t's true. God has
empowered us with prayer, with
a heritage, with a promise of
:eternal life like we can't even
imagine.
There are three seasons in the
life of a Christian. How we, as
Christians, decide to apply


these seasons will
determine how far we
reach out to the
world, how devout
we are, and ultimate-
ly, our reward in
Heaven.
Season one is
power. This is a gift
from God. We
receive this power
when we submit our
life to him through
Jesus. If we decide to
walk away from God
on this earth and
accept the power that
the world offers, we

really have no power at all, It all
comes down to eternity. Where
will we spend it? The, real
power is found in. the lovb that
Christ had (and still has)!0or us.
This is the power we accept and
receive as Christians. It's not
perfect in us except through
Christ.
Season two is position. With
the power we have a decision to
place ourselves in a position to


use that power. I
would step out on a
limb to say that there
are thousands and
thousands of
Christians who have
not made a conscious
decision to position
themselves physical-
ly, mentally and emo-
tionally to do the
work of God to the
best their ability. For
some, Christianity
isn't any more than a
"Sunday thing."
Sometimes they
don't even make it to


Sunday.
But some Christians position
themselves in a way to.always
look to glorifyGod. This is our
purpose as Christians., 'God
wants to be glorified. How do
you do that? What position are
you in currently? Do you need
to change your position?
Season three is prestige.
When you have the power and
you choose to position yourself


with that po~er to glorify God,
that is where you receive pres-
tige. It's ,not because you,
deserve prestige necessarily.
Because without Christ, we
wouldn't have the chance to
strive for the prestige. Prestige
is another way of saying "God
smiled on me." Prestige is
another way of saying that God
kno\w s us, is proud of us and is
happy with us.
What season are you in?
Can you help others who
need guidance with a season?
Here's a secret (not really):
We are .all here to help each
other with our various-and
respective seasons. We are all in
one season or another. -
The love that Christ lavished
on us is the way we present our
pdWer atidpisitioh ourselves'to
give himithe prestige. After all,
it's God's prestige not ours.

at Lake Placid Church of
Christ. He can be reached at

College Baseball


Fall season a challenging one for SFCC Panthers


By SCOT DRESSEL

AVON PARK It didn't take coach
Rick Hitt ery long to come up with one
\word to describe his South Florida
Community College Panthers' fall sea-
soni
And that word \as "'challenging."
In more i\as than one, too In addi-
tion to the challenge of building a team
for the spring season \hen the
Panthers \ill be after their fourth
straight winning season and a third trip
to the pla',offs in four \ears there was
also the added challenge that came \when
a pair of starters \ere kicked off the


team after being arrested and
charged with %andalizing a golf
course.
On top of that. there's the chal-
lenge that is inherent to commru- -
nit> college baseball: losing
around half .our team e\er
ear. For the Panthers, the major- HITT
its of the losses from last season
came out of the pitching rotation.
--"e'\e got 14 freshmen pitchers and
\e also ha\e a fe"\ new freshmen posi-
tion players." Hin said. --Ve have a high
percentage of our position players
returning from last lear. but only three
of our arms."


With that influx of freshmen.
another challenge has been
building team unity. To that end.
Hin ordered shins for all the
players and coaches that have
just two letters on them: US.
"The\ wear those every day to
practice and to work out. We
hope it's a constant reminder that
whilee this game is built on individual
performances. it's a team game and
ever guy's role maters," Hitt said.
"WVhen iou mesh that man\ new gu.\s
with the few returning gu.s. sometimes
it takes a while to develop a chemistry
that will lead to success on the field.


That's been a challenge for us this fall,
so we tried to help that process.
"'We fight this battle ever> year to try
to mesh together guxs that play together
for a year or itwo and teach them to real-
ly believe in each other and trust in each
other and understand that \we're all
pulling in the same direction. That's a
challenge every season."
Hitt said no player stood out above the
rest \%hen it came to performance, but
most of the 24 players had a positive fall.
"The effort from our players most of
the fall has been good. Effort could have
been a \ord we put on those shirts, too.

History Lesson
35 Years Ago
Nov. 25, 1971: Lake Placid
notched its fourth win ol
the season by beating
Coral Shores 20-0 The win
topped on a fine home-
coming for the Lake Placid
team, which improved to
4-5 on the year heading
into a big matchup against
Lakeland Santa Fe. The
Dragons scored early on a
4-yard first quarter Terry
Meyers touchdown plunge.
Meyers, the outstanding
player of the game, would
score a second touchdown
in the third quarter and'
ended up with 116 yards
rushing on the night.

No bass? Just

catch some

bream instead
On an overnight stop at
a hotel in Tennessee recent-
ly. I met a group of fisher-
men from my home state
of Indiana. They were on
their a\ to Florida to do
some bass fishing.
After discussing bass
catching techniques they
might use here in the south.
and pointing out the better
bass fishing lakes in
Florida. including our
immediate area. they still
had one last question.
"What the heck are
bream '"
I must adnut that when I
, first came to Florida man>
years ago. I also wondered
w hat the heck were bream.
I soon learned that bream
are made up of many
species of small fish.
including any and all of the
sunfish family, such as
bluegills and shellcrackers.
I also learned the proper
southern pronunciation,
"brim."
Bream are w widespread.
being found in great num-
bers in all clean water
creeks and lakes. No
expertise is needed to fill a
stringer with these little
battlers as they seldom
refuse a bait dropped any-
"here near them.
Elaborate and expensive
equipment is not needed. A
cheap rod and reel or even
a cane pole with a short
line and bobber and baited
hook ill usually> suffice.
Any of several baits will
attract them, but they seem
to prefer earthworms and
live crickets.
Bluegills are probably
the most popular and best
known of the bream. They
average 5 to 9 inches in
length and weigh less than
Sa pound. They can and do
grow much larger, depend-
ing on their habitat. The
world record is 4 pounds,
12 ounces.
Millions of fry are pro-
duced yearly as they spawn
in the shallow water during
the spring and early sum-
mer as the water warms
sufficiently. The great eat-
ing qualities of this little
Same fish are well known
anid a fish fry can be a real
treat.
The redear sunfish is just
about as popular as the
bluegill. Known to most as
the shellcracker here in the
south, it is much the same
size and found in much the
same area. Shellcrackers
grow larger here in south-
ern Florida and some dyed-

Q-


The bluegill is one of the most popular panfish among local anglers.


JONES
Continued from 1D
in-the-wool anglers travel far
and wide in search of trophy
shellcrackers. World records
have been caught both here
and in Alabama.
The shellcracker's name
comes from its ability to crush
the shells of small mollusks
and crustaceans that they feed
on. The spawning season
brings out hordes of anglers
seeking out the beds of these
brawny little fighters. Being a
bit more'choosy in their feed-
ing habits than the bluegill,
their preference is the grass
shrimp. As table fare, the shell-
cracker is truly superb.
Undoubtedly, the prettiest of
the bream family is the red-
breast sunfish. In my opinion,
this little fellow is a master-
piece of nature's art. His red
breast and green to bronze


back are just spectacular dur-
ing the spawning season. This
colorful and popular fish likes
moving water and will readily
take baits such as crickets,
worms and small crawfish.
The longer sunfish is so
much like the redbreast that it
is sometimes hard to distin-
guish between the two. He-may
be just a bit more vivid than
the redbreast during the spawn.
Their feeding habits are much
the same, though they usually
run a little smaller. They also
like small flowing streams and
rivers and are found about any-
where the redbreast is found.
Lesser known, the shadow
bass is another member of the
bream family. If you fish for
bream, you have surely caught
shadow bass but you probably
know them as "goggle eyes."
Colored much like a crappie,
their nickname comes from
their large bulging e'e-: They
measure about 6 to 8 inches


long and give a good a
ing of themselves whet
on light tackle.
All of our lakes supl
bream and they can be

because that's a huge word in
our program. We've had some
good effort days from some
guys. We've had a couple of
individuals who swung the bat
well and a couple of guys who
played well defensively every
day and a couple of guys who
pitched well most of the time
they got the ball, but there was-
n't one who really shined above
the rest."
As for wins and losses, Hitt
has no idea. He doesn't concern
himself with those kind of stats
in the fall, which is basically
myfwc.com just a string of practice games.
"The goal for the fall is to
provide repetition. I couldn't
ccount- even tell you how many games
n taken we ended up on top or not on
top. The fall's not about that.
port It's all about 'preparing guys
found and giving them repetitions to


in our local streams. ArbucKle
Creek has bluegills and shell-
crackers in abundance and
Fisheating Creek is one of the
premier bream-fishing streams
in our area. The fish from both
of these streams are very dark
in color due to the tannic
waters.
When the bass fishing slows
down, take along a can of
worms or a tub of crickets and
catch )ourself a stringer of
these beautiful panfish. These
small beauties can make your
day when the bass aren't coop-
erating. You won't be disap-
pointed with the delicious din-
ner fare the\ can be.

do so. You find out a lot more
about who can and who can't
when you do that."
For, now, the focus of the
Panthers is on academics and
conditioning, but it's hard not
to look ahead to early 2007,
when the games will start to
count.
"We open (spring) practice
Jan. 10, so we get 16 days of
practice before we open the
season at Hillsborough Jan. 26,
so we've got a lot tp get accom-
plished mentally. I think we're
in a pretty good place physical-'
ly," Hitt said.
"We have a long way to go
until we open conference play
in March, but our goal is to
have a shot at making the play-
offs for the third time in four
years and have our fourth con-
secutive winning season. On
top of that, we'd like to find a
way to get a championship
under our belt at this school for
the first time ever."
