would roll over in his grave if
he knew what is being alleged
of the Highlands County
Library System.
His cataloging method,
known around the world as the
De\ey Decimal System. would
be useful in organizing the 61
findings of deficiencies in eight
categories identified in the No\.
15 publication of an internal
audit performed by the
Highlands County Clerk of
Courts.
"We met \ith the state attor-
ney's office and advised them
of the more severe findings."
Bob Jamison. senior director of
business services for the clerk
of courts, said in a phone inter-
view Thursday.
Before taking those findings
to the state artorme\ and to the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, Jamison said senior
management was notified. Law
enforcement was brought in
only after "insufficient action"

SGrowing num'bers:of "people
want no part of the crowded
malls, long lines, and frustra-
tions that have come to typify
the holiday shopping season.
No%\. the only thing those
shopping-averse people have to
do to fulfill their holiday wish
lists is connect to the Internet.
And thanks to a plethora of
deals, online shopping has
almost become cheaper than
shopping in person.
Internet shopping has
become a phenomenon in
recent years, and increases in
security and identity theft pro-
tections are part of the reason.
But most businesses have
begun to tap into the Internet

Ernesto. pump limits
blamed for district's

SEBRING Sandra
Tyrrell versus SpringLake
Improvement District returns
to the Highlands County
Courthouse.
The property nghts versus
public interest struggle takes
center ring at 1:30 p.m. today
before judicial referee Judge
Ellen S. Masters. who will
hear arguments, listen to wit-
nesses and review evidence
before declaring a \\inner in
the district's bid for a motion
to modify or dissolve the 2002
permanent injunction limiting
SpnngLake's ability to pump
excess water.
Today's hearing isn't a no-
holds-barred fight, as Masters
ruled Nov. 13 that her court
has no jurisdiction regarding


free shipping, and even cus-
tomized gift lists to help pretty
much everyone.
Retailers are no\ treating
online shopping as a valuable
part of their business model,
and they are adjusting accord-
ingly. To this end, almost all
major online retailers offer free
or reduced shipping during the
holiday season. About 83 per-
cent of online retailers are offer-
ing some sort of free shipping
promotion during the season.
according to a survey conduct-
ed by shop.org.
The Web site Cyber

National Retail Federation, has

"This court does not intend
to be involved in the permit-
ting or planning of engineer-
ing solutions." Masters wrote
in her No\. 13 decision, in
which she scheduled today's
rematch.
Since November 2002.
SpringLake has been limited
to 15 minutes of pumping ith
at least 45 minutes off time
from no more than one of four
pumps at its pump station next
to Tyrrell's property.
In 2004. Tyrrell received
monetary damages after
SpringLake violated the
injunction and flooded her
property.
That incident opens up a
renewed claim for reverse
condemnation for T rrell.
Celeste F. Adorno argued in a
Sept. 24 emergency motion to
modify the injunction.

still ho\Yvs potential shoppers
\where some of the best online-
deals can be found.
Man) Web sites, such as
besibuy.coni. are offering "gift
idea centers" to help undecided
shoppers find discounted items.
The Best Buy gift center fea-
tures an index of potential gifts
that is organized by not only
price, but also gender and age.
The Best Buy Web site is
especially useful for Highfands
Count) shoppers, considering
the nearest Best Buy store is in
Lakeland. The site also offers
next day or second day shipping
for those really last minutes
gifts.
Almost everN leading online
retailer is offering some son of
holiday bargains for those who
want to avoid the malls.


Amazon.corn, for example, is
offering, free "Super. Saver
Shipping" for any item more
than $25 until Friday, Dec. 15.
Those items will, however. take
an extra three to five days to
ship. If you want the gift to your
house by the Friday before
Christmas, thie last day to order
using standard shipping is
Monday, Dec. 18 and the twvo-
day shipping deadline is
Tuesday. Dec. 19. The deadline
for one-day shipping of items is
6 p.m. Thursday. Dec. 21.
Although Cyber Monday was
four days ago. some Web sites
are still having sales.
Bestbiuy.corm is offering a vari-
ety of online-only Cyberr spe-
cial.' through Saturday.
ValIinart.com's weeklong
"Super Online Specials" sale


concludes 'lodayF--The sale
offered bargains on a wide vari-
etv of items. from tents to 'elec-
tronics to clothing.
The increase in post-Black
Friday Internet shopping led to
the creation of the term "Cyber
Sunday" last year by the
National Retail Federation.
Although some consider the
day a myth, Cyber Monday was
the second-busiest online shop-
ping day of the season last year.
Dec. 12, the last day most com-
panies offered free shipping,
was the busiest shopping day of
2005.
This year, Black Friday saw
more online shoppers than did
Cyber Monday. Online traffic to
online shopping sites last
Friday increased 12 percent

Swing into the holidays Saturday

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
AVON PARK Up to four
suspects are sought in two
apparently unrelated armed
robberies that occurred less
than a week apart, Avon Park
police said.
The most recent occurred a
week ago at Dollar General,
906 U.S. 27 South. The other
happened at Winn-Dixie, 802
U.S. 27 South, on Nov. 19.
Though both occurred within
an hour of the stores' closing,
Det. Sgt. Michael Rowan, com-
mander of the criminal investi-
gations division, said the two
aren't connected,
At Dollar General on Nov.
24, a black male between 35-40
years old brandished a firearm
at the sole cashier, demanding
money from her register.
"He didn't have it in his
hand, he just lifted his shirt,"
Rowan said:

The suspect left with, an
undisclosed amount of money,
an amount which the store had-
n't reported to police, by
Thursday.
Rowan called it a "simple
case" providing his offices with
little to work with.
No injuries were reported
during either robbery. Three
suspects, -two who entered the
store and, a possible getaway
car driver, are believed to have
hit Winn-Dixie about 9 p.m.
Nov. 19.
Though they released a -or-
tion of the store's security tape
depicting a masked gunman,
Rowan said the suspects remain
at large.
Those with information
regarding either case are
encouraged to call the Avon
Park police at 453-6622,

Prevent home burglaries when away for holidays


Special to the News-Sun
This time of year many peo-
ple take advantage of school
breaks and the holidays to go on
vacation, visit friends or just get
out of the house for holiday
shopping. Unfortunately, empty
homes also mean burglars will
have countless good prospects.
"It's very a vulnerable time
for homeowners," said Ray
Palermo, director of public
information for Teachers'
Insurance Plan. "People are
busy. distracted and not alw a)y
focusing on the more mundane
things of life, like making sure
your home is secure "
He offered a fe%% precautions


to help prevent homeowners
from falling victim to thieves
this holiday season.
Start by making a full exte-
rior examination of your house.
Make sure all locked doors and
windows have a tight fit when
closed. Check to see if there's
any "wiggle room" that could
give a thief enough space to
jimmy it open. Walk around the
entire property to ensure there
is nothing that can be used to
climb to upper floors.
Look in your windows to
make sure blinds are positioned
to screen the interior view, but
not closed completely You may
%ant to mo\e an\ computers


and TVs away from prying
eyes. Never leave an "emer-
gency key" hidden outside your
house.
i Always leave your home in
a secure state, regardless of the
time you expect to be away. A
burglar watching your house is
capable of taking what he wants
in a few carefully planned
moments.
M When )ou are away from
the house, particularly for an
extended period, be sure to
make it look lived-in. Put
timers on a few lights at varied
times; put a timer on a radio set
to a talk-radio station; install a
dusk/dawn outside light or


motion detector; ask a neighbor
to pick up any circulars that
might pile up on your doorstep;
and stop deli ery of new spapers
and mail.
In many instances
installing a home alarm system
will give you protection, a
sense of calm and even a dis-
count on your homeowner's
insurance.
Walk around the interior of
your home and inventory your
major possessions.
Additional information on
this and other safety topics is
available at www%. Teachers.

Bronson to deploy

inspectors to pet

stores during

holiday season
Spiecil tI tn Niews-Sun
S Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson
announced that his department
is conducting a sweep of pet
stores during the next five
weeks to ensure that such
establishments are complying
with regulations that protect
consumers in the purchase of
petl.
"Pets bring a great deal of
joy to families and are often a
considerable investment."
Bronson said. "So it's impor-
tant to do business with a rep-
utable pet store or dealer who
knows and followkn the law to
avoid problems from occurring
after a purchase of an animal."
Toward that end. Inspectors
are visiting numerous pet stores
and dealers between now and
Jan. 1, 2007. to make sure that
a store or dealer is complying
with Florida Statute 828.29. a
la\ that imposes certain obli-
gations on sellers and offers
recourse to consumers in the
event that problems arise.
Linder the law. dogs and cats
must be at least eight \weeks of
age when sold or offered for
sale and each animal must be
accompanied by a Florida
health certificate signed by a
licensed and accredited \eteri-
narian within the past 30 days
documenting required accina-
dons, tests and treatments for
internal or external parasites.
In addition, the law requires
a dealer to provide a purchaser
with information on the bu'er's
rights under the law, which
includes the right to return,
exchange or receive reimburse-
ment for veterinarian expenses
if an animal is deemed unfit by
a licensed veterinarian within
14 days of purchase.
Aside from making sure that
a dealer is complying with the
law, consumers should also
consider suitability \when pur-
chasing an animal. Bronson
said. For example, some breeds
of dogs maN be less appropriate
if there are infants or young
children in a home. Likewise.
consumers may want to think
[% ice before purchasing a large
animal if theN live in a small
dwelling.
The department's Division
of Ammal Industry assists con-
sumers, veterinarians and pet
dealers in educating them about
the pet law and making sure
that its pro\ isions are followed.

Dick and Sally Noel had an opportunity recently to meet former President and Mrs. Jimmy Carter (cen-
ter).


Noels attend church with former president


Special to the News-Sun
Dick and Sally Noel have
traveled extensively since they
sold their business, D & D Auto
Sales and Service and retired in
1988. On one of their recent
travels, they spent the night in
Americus, Ga. Since they were
close to Plains, Ga., they decid-
ed to venture into town and
check out former President
Jimmy Carter's area.
,The Noels learned that the

SpringLake's attorney has
handled all other matters.
Tyrrell's original claim of
reverse condemnation (a
method by which a citizen sues
a governmental agency to buy
land the plaintiff alleges was
destroyed by the government)
was denied by the court.
SpringLake's defense was that
the statute of limitations had
run out. -
The 2004 flooding. Adomo is
expected to argue; was a ne%\
incident that reset the statute of
limitations clock.
In addition to reverse con-
demnation, Adorno said the
court must consider what's in
the public interest.
"SpringLake services over
4,380 acres with 1,471 homes,
numerous businesses, over
3,700 residents and more devel-
opment is planned," she said in
her motion. "Tyrrell is one per-

unimproved lands."

AUDIT
Continued from 1A
executive summary said.
Among the findings were
employee visits on library com-
puters to Web sites such as
holisticwisdom.com, 3betfair
poker.com, classictruckcon
soles.com, flicker.com, kill
sometime.con and others
including additional porno-
graphic sites.
"The Internet scan revealed it
was not always utilized effec-
tively on all employee comput-
ers and obscene/offensive Web
sites were accessed on employ-
ee computers located in the
Children's Section ... as well as
other sections," the report
alleged.
Cooperative Library Director
Mary Myers allegedly visited
killsometime.com and xmra
dio.com during working hours.
"The quick scan indicates
access for personal purposes in
2006," the audit reports.
"Accesses on other dates were
deleted."
In defense of library staff,
Cool said they sometimes have
to log on to a site to verify
whether it should be blocked.
"The system we have auto-
matically blocks many, many
sites," he said. "But, it doesn't
guarantee that somebody don'tt
be able to navigate through it
,.and get to a blocked site."
On a nightly basis, the
library's soft are adds new
sites that are forbidden.
Debra Frisco is accused of
"multiple accesses'" of toil-
girls.com, americansingles.com
and ediets.con at the circula-
tion desk computer.:
"As a person who is also
interested, and I'asi a student of
Wiccan philosophy. it is not
hard to imagine a future in
which those who would do us
harm bring only harm to them-
selves," Frisco said in a June 16
e-mail to M\ers. "I will go
home this. weekend and concen-
trate my energies, and the ener-
gies that support what is life-
affirming, and I will imagine
just such a future where we will
only benefit from these issues
in ways so significant that we
can't even imagine how won-
derful it could all turn out in the
end."
She continued, in the corre-
spondence that apparentlN


addresses the audit, "This
approach has never failed for
me, and I have faced some for-
midable adversaries in my life.
You are a good person and a
warrioress for this library, and I
know everything will turn out
for the best. If there is any way
I can further help, let me
know."
In an e-mail to Fred Myers
with the subject, "next batch of
audit findings," Mary Myers
wrote, "Well, I finally got them.
And again, the bottom line is
they want to take away my
cooperative duties and get rid of
the cooperative all together. I
wish I wouldn't get so upset."
It was sent June 15.
Previously, in April, Mary
Myers told Fred Myers via e-
mail, "Guy (Maxcy)-called me
this morning after breakfast
with Carl. He said he is really
angry and is going to take care
of it. He claims he is going to
recommend pulling the funding
for the internal audit depart-
ment in next year's budget."
The News-Sun couldn't reach
Mary Myers at the library at
5:45 p.m. Thursday and could-


n't reach her at her Lake Placid
home.
Commission chairman
Maxcy, who was with Don
Bates in Destin for a Florida
Associations of Counties leg-
islative conference, denied
knowledge of audit particulars
before they were released
Tuesday.
"I think that would be inap-
propriate," he said, denying that
Cool or Mary Myers had con-
tacted him during the audit. He
denied sending the e-mail.
"Mary Myers hasn't talked to
me about any audit. ... I don't
know where Mary got that.'"
As did other commissioners,
Maxcy knew that an internal
audit was taking place. He
learned four weeks ago that the
sheriff's office was called to
investigate some of the find-
ings.
The News-Sun will report the
allegations by category begin-
ning with the ethics findings in
Sunday's issue.
For a complete list of the
allegations, log on to
www.newssun.com this after-
noon.

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


An ongoing project with ourselves and our children


Boy, was my face red and my
temper tipping the scales.
My 10-year-old went into
church Sunday night with his
hat still on his head. Not want-
ing to yell at him, I stepped up
my walk and reached for him
just as the door started to close
behind me. Fortunately, or
unfortunately as the case may
be, our preacher grabbed the hat
as Daniel walked by. When I
came around the corer of the
door, our eyes locked and he
knew I wasn't happy. .
Before I could even say any-
thing he looked at me and said,
"I forgot." He had no reply
when I asked how he could not
tell there was a hat on his head.
Anyone who has ever seen
Daniel knows .that his hair is
kept very, very short. It never.
has been long enough to even
go over the tip of his ears.
And this happened on the tail
of the column I rote last week
telling how I have been work-
ing on my children and their
manners. I share this with you
:this \eek just to prove that I
have my job cut out for me. but
I'm working on it. And I'm glad
there are other adults around us
on a regular basis %who are help-
ing.
As for the hat and church, I
don't think that %will happen
again. We still have other issues
we are dealing \with though.
Being polite and doing the
right thing is an ongoing lesson
we must be willing to face. As
\e get older and %with continual


AT RANDOM

Romona Washington,

practice, it becomes easier, but
just as with life, we neter stop
learning.
My column last week did
spark some conversation. I
received several phone calls
and e-mails, and heard an
announcement at a high school
that the next day all teachers
were .reminded to check for
dress code violations, sending
offenders to the office. With-
that kind of announced wa:rn-
ing, there shouldn't hate been
any offenders. Hopefully teach-
ers %will pa\ a little more atten-
tion without needing an
announcement, and v.ill deal
twith those offenders in an
appropriate wa\
One conversation did cause
me to reflect on li o%% n school
da\ s. The question \ as asked of
me, "W'hat do )ou think of the
. \a\ the teachers dress?"
Hmmmm. I knot \ e are in a
different time than w hen I \ent
to school and things do change.
but I do believe that our chil-


dren are influenced most heavi-
ly by their teachers and their
parents ... the people they see
most in their early developmen-
tal years..
I have seen many teachers -
both men and women at all
levels wear jeans to school on
any given day of the week. I.
have also seen a lot of women
teachers wear what is consid-
ered capri pants ... something I
don't feel is very professional.
I'm not saying that all teach-
ers should be in suit and tie or a
nice dress for the classroom,
but I hope there is some kind of
dress code for them as well ...
and more importantly, that it is
being enforced.
I remember back to my high
school days and Betty Burch,
Helen Britt and Jean Lunid, just
to name a few, stand out in my
mind. They al%\ as dressed pro-
fessionally. acted professionally
and had the respect of their stu-
dents. I don't remember ever
seeing anm of m\ female teach-
ers in something like capris.
and especially\ not in jeans.
I don't mean to pick on the
ladies, but I don't see the male
teachers coming to class in
shorts or T-shirts. In fact. I think-
for the most par they lead the
'pack ... all that I can remember
and see in the classrooms today
are well-dressed men. Too bad
the youngg bo\s and \ounier
men aren't paying closer anten-
tion.
I also \was touched bN a note
received by Dale lMcMindes of


Sebring.
He wrote, in part, "I served
as a US. Foreign Service
Officer for 15 years in Europe,
Africa and the Caribbean. Each
country, area and tribal group
had its' own forms of etiquette.
Now that I am retired and living
in Sebring, I am "almost"
shocked at the things I see peo-
ple do and say.
"When my wife and I go out
to eat, I can see why we as
Americans have the reputations
we export to others. As a man,
I want to get up and remove all
the caps men forget to remove
when coming into a public
place. I want to say, 'boy where
did you grow up; in a barn? Get
that cap off!'
"I know they never served in
the military."
It was after the incident at
church that I received this note
from Mr. McMindes. I had
thought the same thing just the
day before as I watched my son
dart into the church. Like I told
him then, it's a good thing the
hat \\as off before his pa saw
him.

Judges should

not be blinded
Editor:
The current diatribe against
activist judges demonstrates a'
lack of 'understanding the
development of the common
law. \which is the bedrock of
our legal sy stem, as well a fail-
ure to recognize the role of
judges in its development.
S The common la\\ is a cen-
turies old history of problem
solving. of judges examining
wrongs or abuses in society\ and
fashioning solution or remedies
for these abuses. It is erroneous
to think that all legal concepts
of fairness are an outtgro\w th of
the legislative process. of col-
lective agreement of a repre-
sentative society.
While man\ of the larger
movements in our law are a
result of legislation on a partic-
ular issue. most of the smaller
changes or adjustments of the
law are the result of judge-
made problem sodlving.
It is eas\ to ov erlook the fact
that the primary purpose of the
law is to create rules or stan-
dards, which "enable people
within a culture to deal equi-
tably with.one another and to
resolve problems or conflicts
without resort to violence or
oppression.
The system of writs, which
numbered in the hundreds, well
known to every lawyer and law
student, was a procedural vehi-
cle developed by judges to cre-
ate a precedent for solving a
particular problem and was
thereafter applied to solve that
problem. Collectively it
became known as the common-
law, which is the foundation of
our laws, civil and criminal, to
this day.
The most revered of our
activist judges, John Marshall,
in the case of Marbury vs.
Madison, established the
Supreme Court's po% er ofjudi-
cial review of acts of congress
to determine their constitution-
ality and thereby established.
the court as an independent
branch of our government.
Thus the creation of this. fun-
damental procedure is the prod-
uct of an activist judge.
The state of Florida has long
recognized the place of the
common law, and with it
activist judges, by enactment of
Florida Statues 2.01 in 1829
which provides :
"The common law and
statute laws of England...
down to the 4th of July, 1776
are declared to be. of force in
this state ... provided the said.
statutes and common law be
not inconsistent with the con-
stitution and laws of the United
States ..."
In effect, it acknowledged
that what had been our law dur-
ing our colonial period contin-


uedtobe our law unless modi-
fied by the legislature.
,To suggest that judges now
be blinded in one eye and
reduced to merely determine
legislative intent .is to ignore
and dens the noble history.
which ga;e birth to our laws in
the first place. and to deny the
courts their historic function in
developing and shaping the
law.

need solution
Editor:
Isaiah 19-23-25: "In that day
there \\ill be a highway from
Eg, pt to Assyria, and the
Assyrians will come into Egypt
and the Egyptians into Assyria,
and the Egyptians will worship
Srith the Ass\rians. In that da\
Israel \\ill be the third part.
\with Egept and Assyria. a
blessing tn the midst of the
earth. \ hon the Lord of hosts
has blessed, saying. 'Blessed is
Egept My people, and Ass.na
the work of NlM hands, and
Israel M\ inheritance. "
Now what is Assyria? "
The old Assyria Empire.
875-640 B.C.,. took in from
Kuw\ait at the Persian Gulf up
past Nineveh in Iraq. and
included all of Syria to the
Mediterranean Sea. It was the
Ass)rians who conquered and
exiled the northern kingdom of
Israelites. with the capital at
Samaria. resulting in the "Lost
Ten Tribes" of Israel. The
prophets Elijah. Elisha. Isaiah.
Jeremiah, Ezekiel,. Hosea,
Micah. Nahum, Zephaniah and
Zechariah all refer to Assyria.
The nation of Iraq and Syria
borders were created by the
British after World War I. Iraq
and Syria was an artificial cre-
ation by young, Winston
Churchill, then heading the
Admiralty or the equivalent of
the Ministry of War of the
British Empire. There "las no
ancient day nation of Iraq or
Syria; there was no such thing.
Our government needs to go
to Syria and talk to these peo-
ple and tell them we nv ant to see
a merger. We are going to work
out a solution between Syria
and Iraq, by combining-your.
countries into one big territory
to bring back the old Assyria
Empire. The only requirement
is you have to make peace with
Israel and you have to get your
hands off of Lebanon -.no
more getting involved with
them. And in the process you
-ill have access to the wealth
of .the huge oil fields if the
north and south of Iraq. And the
Iraqis will have a port on the
Mediterranean in which they
do not have now.
The Baath party of both
countries were at one time gov-


Available


earned by the Aloits sect. which
is Sunni. So this would be a
more secular regime, which is
\what they need n Iraq. The.
don't need this religious strife
that is going on now.
In Ezekiel there is no men-
tion of Jordan or Eg pt or Syria
or Iraq coming to war against
Israel. It is from Iran, so this
combined recreation of Assyria
will isolate Iran.
It would be a wiIn- in for all
sides and it would be in accor-
dance with the Bible. This
would be a way out of the mess
that we have in Iraq. Iraq is not
a prize that we want to hold on
to. -,
On the other side, these so
called road maps by creating a
new state for the Palestinians
are not in accord with anything
that is w written in the Bible, so
President Bush is fighting
scripture on that one. If he tries
to unite Syria and Iraq he
would be in accordance with
what the Bible says and God
will bless him. So that's my
two cents worth.

Nation should

be thankful

Editor:
2006 should be a special
year to be thankful for this
great land of ours. This country
and its people have gone
through great stress the last
four years. What with natural
disasters and man-made ones;
this country has survived true
crises that have undone many
nations in the past.
Thus, the first thing I am
thankful for is my parents' gen-
eration that survived the Great
Depression and spawned the
next generation on the princi-
ples it learned through that
great time of peril and for that
next generation, mine, that still

possesses those \wondrous prin-
ciples, which translate into the
contributions it has made and is
still making to its communities.
It is our generation that benefit-
ed from the efforts of that par-
ent generation, which led :to
gieat prosperity\ from World
.War H to the '80s and whichh
my generation still gives back
to this countrN which fostered
its grow th and development.
I am thankful for ordinal
Americans in the middle class
about 80 percent) that makes
this nation hum, in spite of the
handicaps set up by corporate
America and its own go\ern-
ment. Anyone privileged to
travel around this community
and country can observe the
true unknown heroes to those
in need. The 40-50 civic organ-
izations, governmental agen-
cies and the churches/syna-
Sgogues of this county are a
microcosm of this great coun-
try that portrays the wholesome
goodness of the American peo-
ple.
I am thankful to my fellow
American voters who reversed
a scary trend toward a totalitar-
ian form of government at the
ballot box, a truly democratic
tool of, for and by the people.
This unjust war would be trag-
ic enough, but the unraveling of
our form of government might
have become a critical catastro-
phe but for an awakened elec-
torate.


I am thankful that there is
still time and enough good peo-
ple in this country to address
the man% problems confronting
us, for Nihich solutions do exist,
evolving from our 200-plus
years of dev elopment.

Neither party is

blameless
Editor:
The election is over and
whether you are Democrat or
Republican, the elected offi-
cials are the leaders of all..
Neither party is blameless for
the condition of this country.
Some seem to think that the
material things are most signif-
icant, but let us remember
Matthew 6:33, "Seek ye first
the kingdom of heaven and all
its righteousness and all these
things will be added."
Let us pray that God will
give each of these leaders the
desire to seek His will, work
together, to have wisdom to
realize that the moral and spiri-
tual issues are intertwined and
these are what form the founda-
tion of our great country and
just as God has destroyed other
countries, He can also destroy
America and as we look
around, we have to be aware
that we are going to stand in
judgment for the things we


allow\ to happen.
I pra. that as the Democrats
seek to accomplish these many
issues before us immigra-
tion. Social Security. energy.
terrorism and others that we
won't get the car ahead of the
horse, because \e %\ill certain-
ly need the help of the good
Lord to accomplish these
things.
To hate His help, Ne have to
live according to His Word. He
should be involved in e'en
decision that is made. God.
sometimes takes evil and uses
it for good.
Leaders can't do it alone. We
each have a responsibility.
Let's clean up our lives and
dilieentlN pray for our leaders.
The election is over. but our
Job is a continual process. Let
us not let Jesus catch us
unaware as He did the virgins
that had no oil for their lamps.
God help each of us to accept
our responsibility to do our best
to accomplish His w ill. He has
a will for every issue: our job is
to follow\ as He leads to accom-
plish these things. May we be
obedient as He leads that our
.country might once more be
\ orthy to be called a Christian
nation, one which other nations
will have a desire to use as an
example. There is no task too
great for Him. In His will.

An attractive

publication
Editor:
When your "Discover
Highlands County," dated
October 2006, came to my
home with the News-Sun, I was
impressed.
My impression is that that
publication is the classiest,
most attractive, with the clear-
est type, illustrations, photo-
graphs and best articles and
advertising that you have ever
published and perhaps your
"piece de resistance."
I can hardly imagine the
hours, effort and the coordina-
tion of the members of staff and
contributors to this effort.
Congratulations to all
involved. I thank you and I feel
confident that many others
share this feeling.

Several years ago, my
father had a major stroke,
temporarily paralyzing his
right side. Eleven months
later, he had another stroke
in the same place. His per-
sistence and iron will
enabled him to recover,
according to the doctor, to 95
percent functioning. Also
according to his doctor, his
95 percent is anyone else's
115 percent.
One of the residual effects
of his strokes was tightened
throat muscles. He would
choke easily. and had trouble
speaking (nwu i:aphasia.org).
We all learned about putting
our arms over our head to
open our airways and stop
choking. It's amazing how
well it works and how few
people are aware of this
method, although it is not
recommended, according to
one of the Web sites on
choking that I visited
(ww.i heimlchin stiiiie.org/h

for me to handle. 1I) dad
had a recliner chair that was

and backwards. When he
would come home from
work. he \would sit in the
chair and Princess would
jump on his lap. Except.
because of her size, she
would tip the chair right over
backwards.
Princess was extremely
well-trained. She knew her

to go under one of the chairs

tried to get her attention by
snapping their fingers and
ended up \iith her running in
circles, looking for her fire-
side chair.
About a Near after my
father's second stroke. a
friend of mine bred her tro
miniature poodles and was
the proud on ner of several
puppies. A mutual friend had
a puppy from a previous lit-
ter that she named Angel.

Because of her puppy

One of Angel's favorite
things to do is gile puppy

months, that Dad \ as actual-

DIVERSIONS


'Deja Vt
Some clever film critics have
drawn attention to the trailer for
"Deja Vu," citing its similarities
to Tony Scott's recent film
"Man On Fire." It's tempting
with a title as inviting as "Deja
Vu." I'm not that clever. Or
maybe I'm too clever.
Aside from a lot of slow-
motion explosions involving a
singed Denzel Washington,
there are few parallels to be
drawn between the two movies
(aside from what can be attrib-
uted to Scott's directoral
stylings). I enjoyed both films,
and while the tone may be sim-
ilar in each, the specific brand
of thriller diverges somewhere
in the middle.
"Deja Vu" follows
Washington's Doug Carlin, an
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco,
Firearms and Explosives agent
investigating a terrorist attack
on a New Orleans ferry full of
servicemen and families. The
towering explosions are
unnerving as most all lifelike
explosions are post Sept. 11,
2001, and Scott's poignant
scenes of the aftermath fam-
ilies weeping, concerned and
shocked onlookers gaping -
are both believable and impor-
tant to the plot. One of the vic-
tims is Claire Kuchever (Paula
Patton) who at first glance was
just another casualty of the
explosion, but something does-
n't sit right with Carlin. Clearly
the two mysteries are connect-
ed, but how?
Carlin's investigation takes
him to a busy bridge overlook-

spearheading the use of a new
kind of surveillance device
wherein the user can view, from
multiple screens in an ultra
high-tech booth, the past. Not
video footage or elaborate re-


enactments, but the actual past.
Looking into the past becomes
a conduit for traveling into the
past and Carlin goes back to
four days ago to pre-emptively
catch the killer.
I found this to be a surpris-
ing, enjoyable and even a little
bit sneaky trick of inserting a
science-fiction vein when the
viewer doesn't see it coming.
The conversation that ensues
when Pryzwarra's crack team of
scientists explain the device to
Carlin is sure to get your wheels
turning, even if you don't fancy
yourself a sci-fi nerd.
If the science fiction genre
makes you roll your eyes and
turn the page, don't let it. The
genius (and I hesitate to use that
word) of "Deja Vu" is that the
elements of science-fiction take
a back seat to the more impor-
tant themes: The detective
work, the romance (Claire and
Carlin feel the flames in the
"past"), and the action are
uniquely supplemented by-the
techno-tricks, not hampered by


There's also the interesting,
deeper theme of undoing the
national past. Repeated view-
ings of explosions, not to men-
tion the dilapidated cityscape of
New Orleans, while exploring
the idea of changing history is
absolutely intentional. Scott
makes very few political state-
ments in this thriller. He only
asks that while we're being
entertained we consider how we
could have done things differ-
ently.

Words contain power that can change lives


Words hurt, heal, motivate,
and aggravate. They are power-
ful. They control emotions and
can even control a person phys-
ically.
A word is worth a thousand
pictures.
"Come here." Two words
that move a person from there
to here.
- Write this down." Three
words that cause people to put
words on a page.
"Remember a time when you
felt angry." Seven words that
can create an overload of emo-
tions.
Your words are power. Think'
of the number of people you
have made smile by saying, "I


really appreciate
you." Or the number
of people you have
hurt by saying,
"What's wrong with
you? Can't you do
anything right?"
Words possess just
as much power when
spoken to a crowd of
a thousand as in a one
on one conversation.
It's one thing to get
one person excited,
but impassion an

By ARIEL VUTO
Sebring High School
There are many advantages
to becoming, a senior, however,
being a senior comes with a few
costly disadvantages, too.
These disadvantages include:
senior picture fees, homecom-
ing and prom expenses,
panoramic photos, paying for
the American College Test and
Scholastic Achievement Test,
cap and gown costs, and college
applications.
Filling out college applica-
tions is hard enough as it is,

What comes to mind when
you hear the word "identity?"
Probably self-control, ethnic
background, outer appearance,
or religious beliefs. At least
that's what comes to mind
when I hear the word "identity."
According to the Merriam
Webster's School Dictionary,
"identity" is defined as individ-
uality, the fact of being the
same as something described or
known to exist; Identity is the
one thing that makes a person.
It allows a person to stand out
among others.
Identity is sometimes lost
once a teen enters into their
adolescent years. Many teens
have lost their identity or just
can't seem to find it once they
have entered into this stage.
Teens also seem to lose their
identity once they enter high
school and just can't seem to
get it back.
"If I could change my identi-
ty, I would try to carry myself
in a more self-respecting way,"
sophomore Lakiesha


have to send the college money
with your applications. What
happens if you don't get accept-
ed to the college? Well, that's
why you mail out as many as
possible, however, filling out a
variety of applications also
means you have to provide the
financial costs to all these appli-
cations.
Taking pictures in high
school is not cheap. It costs $10
just for sitting fees, then there is
still a bill to pay if you even
want the pictures to take home.
The panoramic photo is the pic-
ture that gets taken in the gym


when every senior in the school
is grouped together. The cost of
possessing this type of memo-
rable picture is between $19-
$50.
As a sophomore or freshman,
going to homecoming is not as
significant as it would be to a
senior, but what about all of the
costs? Most girls have to get
their hair and nails done, pick
out the perfect (usually expen-
sive) dress, and still pay for
tickets. Last school year at
Sebring High, homecoming
tickets were $20, and prom
tickets for a senior were $40, 1'


Any college-bound senior
knows that they must take the
ACT and SAT tests. But here's
the twist: The tests are not free.
How about that? Two tests that
students have no choice but to
take and they. cost money. Most
often, the test prices range from
$40-50. However, once you've
taken them, you must keep
retaking them until you receive
Sour necessary score.
Becomnung a senior: is just
about the -best thing that can
ever, happen to' a student.
However, it is also very expen-
.'sive.:.- .,

By BRIANA WASHINGTON
Avon Park High School
Why should we respect vet-
erans?
Recently I had a disturbing
experience with the Veteran
Park in Avon Park. Some boys
were disrespecting this monu-
ment. These monuments are
very expensive so you should
not mess around with them in
ways that could destroy them.
Veterans risked their lives so
we would have the freedoms
that we have today. If it wasn't
for them, we would still be pay-
ing high taxes like our ances-
tors did before the
Revolutionary War. We might
be slaves or, even worse, we
might not even exist. There
have been many destructive
wars and each time we have not
lost our freedoms.
You have people who are
anti-war, and the troops still
defend our country. That would
be a tough thing to do when you
know that there are people in
your home country who could
care less if you make it back.
What would happen if one
day no one wanted to defend
us?Have Americans considered
that?


who wore it
Furthermore these monu-
ments have a special meaning
to the relatives and descendants
of those who did serve in the
armed services and the wars. It
is very disturbing to see this
disrespect.
As an Air Force Junior
Reserve Officer Training Corps
cadet I wear the uniform each
week along with about 100 oth-
ers. It is rude for people to
ridicule those who do wear the
uniform. It may be uncomfort-
able, but at least someone
stands up for those that fight for
our country.
To those who disregard the
veterans and their memorials,
you need to take heed to this
question. Do you love
America? Do you really make a
Pledge of Allegiance? Because
if you do then you are lying,
because someone who loves
America would not do this to
the memorials of either those
who survived, were Missing in
Action, were Prisoners of War,
or even those who have lost
their lives.
One 'more final question ...
Have you thanked a veteran
*today?

student starts off good, then he
or she will likely succeed, in
school. One of the steps toward
making this foundation a suc-

and student learning relation-

There's also a social contract
that both the teacher and the
freshmen students must abide
bN to make this foundation a
success. This contract covers


Stansberry said.
Teens are sometimes faced
with the decision regarding,
who to hang out with. They're
pressured into doing the wrong
things, and wondering, what
could they do to fit in. Many
teens have made these deci-
sions and now regret the fact
that they ever wondered about
them.
As an 11th-grader my own
identity is a big thing to try to
keep. Many people label you or
single you out without even
knowing the things you have to
endure. I mean they look at you
and say, 'Oh she thinks she's all
that or she thinks she's every-
thing.'
In reality many teens don't
think that way, but sometimes
feel very self-conscious, are
shy, or are perhaps people who
keep to themselves. They don't
really care who's wearing what,
who's dating who, what the
new gossip around school is
and who says what about them.
If you could do it all over
again where would your identi-
ty stand?


the basic rules of being respect-
ful, trustworthy and showing
equal treatment toward each
other.
All the educators who partic-
ipate in the' Freshman
Foundation had to go through
training; they also attended the
Capturing Kid's Heart program
to teach them ho"\ to be-good'
teachers and ho\\ to handle
young kids.
This program is not to punish
the freshmen .students, but
rather to help them excel in
their working performance in
school so that they could grow
up to be very educated people
who can carry on the future and
make the world a better place.
This program is not applied
all over the world, but some
would argue that it would be a
good thing if it was. Students at
Sebring High might not like it
now, but \when they get older
they will be thankful.
"It's going well. The founda-
tion teachers are e',cited all of
their planning has paid off,"
Assistant Principal Debbie
Wood said.


To some freshmen, being in
the Freshman Foundation
makes them feel like they are
still in middle school. The
freshmen are being treated like
they are attending a completely
different school. They have a
separate pep rally, which drags
the fun out of having a high
school pep rall ::, i..
Some sophomores also think
it's unfair because they had to
go through a second year hear-
ing the upper classmen students
telling them to go home instead
of the freshmen.
On the other hand, some
freshmen think it's a good idea.
N\quira Jones, who is cur-
rently a freshmen at Sebring
High School. said. "I learn
more and there's better advan-
tages. It's also fun and easier to
get through. also it's easier to
sta\ out of trouble being away
from the older kids."
"It's a hard transition from
middle school to high school,
so anything that will make it
easier is good," Sebring teacher
John Sigmund said.


By ARIEL VUTO
Siehrg High Sl.t,...l
The parking lots at Sebring
High School are, and have
always been, a huge dilemma
for students and staff. There is
the problem of students finding
a place to park once all the
parking spaces are filled, and
then there's the trouble of the
school staff taking up the senior
parking lot, and the students
taking up the faculty parking
lot.
For students, getting to
school on time is a must.
*Nobody wants to be in class
late because that just leads to
'detentions. However, what are
students supposed to do when
there isn't a place to leIae their
vehicle and dr&i inc back and
fourth through the parking lots
is only wasting time? The fac-
ulty parking lot is one option, if
you'want to risk a referral or a
ticket.
For teachers, getting parking
spaces is easy. They can park in
the back of the school or in
front of the office. They can
even park in the senior or
underclassmen parking lots.
However, this is where the con-
troversy between students and
faculty starts.
How come Sebring High
staff can park with the students
even though space is extremely
limited, but students should
never consider parking in the
faculty parking lot?
There was an instance last


school year when an under-
classlnen parked in the faculty
parking lot because he couldn't
find a vacant parking space in
the underclassmen parking lot.
A teacher sa\\ this and became
.very angered with the student.
The teacher e\ en tried to get the
student in trouble. But .what
was the student supposed to do?
Go home?
The school buses cause even
more trouble. There is a lot of
buses this year at Sebring High.
However, they all park in the
same location: the senior park-
ing lot! This means that if sen-
iors don't rush to their vehicles
in time to lea-e campus before
the buses do, then they're stuck
in their vehicless in a major traf-
fic jam for at least 1,5 minutes.
An answer for this would be
to split the buses up.A large set
of buses could park behind the
school, since it is such an
unpopulated parking area. A
smaller set could park near the
Freshmen Foundation, since the
majority of students who ride
the school buses are freshmen.
The school parking lots have
been a problem for years, and it
will remain a dilemma for years
to come. The population of stu-
dents and teachers is only going

5 Years Ago
Dec. 2, 2001: Just when it
appeared the DeSoto
Bulldogs had Lake Placid's
basketball team down for
the count, some big time
Green Dragon players
made some huge plays to
pull out a 37-32 win. The
Bulldogs led 28-20 during
the waning moments of the
third period when David
Callahan swished a 3-
pointer with two seconds
to go. Ramadhani Brown
triggered a 9-0 Lake Placid
run with another 3-pointer
and Lamonte Hill banked in
a layup to tie the game at
30 and the Dragons pulled
away from there for the
win.

to defeat INIG Academies

The Streaks opened up T
an impressive 22-6 lead
behind the torrid shooting of
Diaz-Ascanti and Hoffner early
on. and the starters took turns
getting hot from then to win the
physical, high-fl ing basketball
game.
It made sense that the most
persistent scorers in a game as
brutal as this would be a pair of
football players. Hoffner spent
the evening bumping underneath
with players several inches taller
than he. while \\ilson got to the
line late to seal the ,ictor,.

offensive spark to keep the game
close. That spark came in the per-
son of Jared Swopshire, w\ho
went on a scoring binge pour-
ing in 19 of 22 points for
Pendleton in one stretch.
Robinson had the game's most
graceful shots, one an elevating
3-pointer to give the Streaks a
46-35 lead. The second shot %ias
a floating jumper from the base-
line.
Pendleton had another
ng scoring outburst from the
sweet shooting Jameson
Tipping. eight straight
ton points for the Panthers that
kept them in the game. But
the Panthers just couldn't
ever completely get off the
mat after the first quarter drub-
bing. Too many scoring threats
for the Streaks and the inability
to run a consistent offense were
their undoing.
Hoffner led all scorers %with 22
points. Diaz-Ascanti had 17.
Robinson netted 15 and Wilson

Lake Placid, Avon Park can't overcome early deficits

Lake Placid's Roytre Hill dishes off a pass in traffic Thursda night
against Lakeland.


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING Teacher 1, Student 0.
Lake Placid coach Levi W\illiams ,\anted to get
a win Tuesday night against Lakeland for several
reasons. First of all, it was his very first regular-
season game at the helm of the Dragons. Almost
as important was the fact the game was against
the Lakeland Dreadnaughts. \\ho are coached by
Deron Collins.
Collins was not onl\ Williams' high school
coach at Sebring back in the early 1990s. he also
gave Williams his first coaching job not too long
ago as an assistant at Lakeland.
Unfortunately for Williams and the Dragons. it
was Collins' team that opened the game \ith 10
unanswered points and never trailed as Lake
Placid, despite a valiant effort, could not catch up
in a 69-52 loss in the first round of the Taveniere
Tip-Off Tournament at Sebring High School.
"It would have been nice ito \ in)." Williams
said. "The team (Collins) had today wvas my JV
team a couple of years ago. so I lknew they \were
going to be a good team. They'\e been playing
together for a while and you could tell."
You could certainly tell in the first four min-
utes of the game as the Dreadnaughts (4-0)
sprinted out to a 10-0 lead, keeping the Dragons


off the scoreboard until George Rasmussen made
a layup with 4:15 into the game.
The Dragons rallied from there. however.
pulling to within n 17-9 at the first stop and closing
the second quarter on a 7-0 run the final three
points coming \when Roytre Hill banked in a

at halftime.
Rasmussen opened the second
half with a basket for Lake Placid
to make it a t\o-point game, but
that \\as as close as the Dragons
would get. Lakeland answered
"ith a back-breaing. 15-2 run
over the next six minutes ke\ed by
four 3-pointers three of them on
consecutive possessions to
open a 45-30 lead.
"You can take some of that
away. but they \ ork on things just
like we do." Williams said of the


barrage of 3-pointers. "Most of the shots they
were getting were out of transition when they
were scrambling and \we weren't matched up
well."
Lake Placid managed to get it back to a nine-
point game at 61-52 late in the fourth quarter, but
