'They're misreading the statute'


Carl Cool said he has
duty, right to inform
commissioners, staff

By KEVIN J. SHUTT

SEBRING Highlands
County Administrator Carl
Cool said he'd do it again.
Cool and other county
employees came under fire in
an internal audit of the
Highlands Count\ Library
System and the Heartland
Library Cooperative that rec-
ommends a physical separation
of the library systems in addi-
tion to other personnel, proce-

will." Cool said Friday.

Cool. Assistant Administrator
Rick Helms and Library
Director Man rM\ers "repeat-
edly dispersed and discussed
confidential findings" in \iola-
tion of state law.
"They're misreading the
statute." Cool said, calling his
information dissemination to
county commissioners and staff
correct, legal and appropriate.
"Not only do I believe I have
the nght to tell them. I ha\e the
duty to tell them that they're
being audited."
The auditors are restricted
from releasing working data,
Cool said while he sat in a foyer
at the Highlands Count>
Courthouse waiting to testifN in
an unrelated SpringLake hear-
ing.
The interdril audit, conducted
by Clerk of Courts auditors
Mary E. Wilson and Heather
Woods, lists the dispersal of
confidential audit information
among six ethics violationss that
include hindering the audit.
misrepresentation of material
facts, duplicity of statements,
confidential information and
noncompliance \with open
records requirements for e-mail
retention and destruction of
public records.
The library\ audit took 18
months. Wilson began the audit
and. six months into it, was
joined by Woods. The. spent 75
percent of their time on the
audit.
"It begs the question 'Wh\
vould it take a \ear and a half
to complete the audit, any
audit?'" Bob Jamison, senior
director of business ser\ ices for

Highlands County Library Systems Director Mary Myers. who also serves as coordinator for the

the clerk, said Friday.
Answering his ow n question,
Jamison said the commingling
of the county library with the
cooperative "as "almost inex-
tricable." there was an "inordi-
nate amount" of resistance from
the auditees and one question
inevitably would lead to three
more.
"It grew exponentially. he
said. "It kept on unraveling and
unraveling. We just had to stop
looking."
Jamison said the library staff
\"as more cooperative when the
Highlands County Sheriff's


Office w\as asked to investigate
pornography viewing on library
computers by staff while work-
ing and "fraud indicators," such
as missing computers, missing
books and deletion of records.
Those indicators aren't
indicative of fraud. but estab-
lish an environment ripe for
fraud. Jamison explained.
The audit initially had 78
findings. Some were combined
and others \ere given an oral
comment, deemed worth look-
ing into but not rising to the
level of notable violation .
Some findings were deleted


due to insufficient e' idence of a
pattern.
Wilson and Woods accumu-
lated voluminous working
papers during their investiga-
tion.
Whatever points found their

backed by those working
papers, which are now\ available
for public inspection.

audit is a tool for management."

the mis-

SFCC nursing student elected to


OBITUARIES


William Garren

represent five regional nursing schools Ga rren, 80 died
Friday, Dec. 1, 2006,


AVON PARK South
Florida Community College
nursing student Catherine
Baxley was recently picked to
represent about 400 other
regional students in the Florida
Nursing Students Association.
As Region 7 director, she
becomes a member of the asso-
ciation's 13-member executive
board, for which she will also
serve as Legislative Affairs
chair.
Baxley, 35, of Fort Meade, is
currently president of SFCC's
nursing students association
and submitted herself for the
October election. in Daytona
Beach. As a region director, she
will attend executive board
meetings, attend the April
national convention of nursing
students, and prepare legislative
updates for the FNSA's
newsletter. Her first board
meeting was Saturday.
Her primary goal during her
one-year appointment is to
improve communication among
nursing students attending the
region's five nursing schools, as
well to improve communication
among members statewide on
legislative issues of importance
to working nurses.
Baxley is a 2004 graduate of
SFCC's practical nursing pro-
gram a member of the first
class completing the program
offered by the college's Hardee
campus in Wauchula. All along,
Baxley intended to become a
registered nurse, but first
secured her practical nursing
certificate before applying to
SFCC's transition program to
eventually become a registered
nurse.
"I took it step by step," said
Baxley, who is working part-
time as a licensed practical
nurse in a medical surgical unit
at Florida Hospital Heartland
Medical Center in Sebring.
The FNSA serves as a pre-
cursor to the Florida Nurses
Association, whose members

Catherine Ba.ley. a nursing student at South Florida Communit) College. was just elected a regional
director of the Florida Nursing Students Association at its October convention. Her goals are to improve,
communications among those attending regional nursing schools and to outline the importance of state
legislation affecting student and professional nurses.


represent working licensed reg-
istered nurses across the state.
Its purpose is to foster profes-
sionalism and leadership skills
among nurses.
As part of her bid for elec-
tion, Baxley had, to make a
speech and a presentation at the
state convention in October.
She was able to get across her
skills as a leader, as a communi-
cator, and as a responsible and
organized individual "who is
able to stay on top of things" -
a must when it comes to
responding to proposed legisla-
tion. "If the nurses aren't active
in shaping legislation affecting
nurses and nursing care, some-
one else will," she said.
Legislators need to know that
nurses are watching the


process, she added.
About 1.500 nurses took part
in the convention, which etery
SFCC student nurse attended.
"I'm very excited about my
election," said Baxle\. \ho
looks forward to the opportuni-
ties it offers her to grow as a
working nurse. She thinks that
the experiences she brings
home will rub off on her fellow
nursing students at SFCC.
Baxley is hoping to make per-
sonal visits and perhaps pre-
sentations about the importance
of FNSA participation -.to
other nursing schools in her
multi-county region.
Since she was 19, Baxley
began working in medical
offices, and finally succumbed
to the encouragement of many
people to become a full-fledged
nurse herself. Since becoming
an LPN two years ago, she has
always wanted to playan, active
role in the Florida Nurses
Association. "That's why I


\\ .nied to run for region direc-
tot" of the students' association.
she sjid.
Ba\le. expects to complete
her SFCC associate's degree in
nursing in June of next year.
Though she already works for a
local hospital and does some
nurse" agency work, working
with families in local hospices
has attracted most of her career
interest.
"I'm a helping person." she
said. 'When 1 ha\e patients
coming to the end of their lives,
they need compassionate and
caring people. I'll pray with
them. With the families, there's
a lot of teaching, a lot of talk-
ing, a lot of explaining about
what's going on with the
patient. And sometimes the
families sometimes need guid-
ance about how to treat their
Loved one, about understanding
the process of dying.
Sometimes they need help mak-
ing amends."

News-Sun, Sunday, December 3, 2006


STATUTE
Continued from 1A
that the distribution of working
information before its release
"actually compromised the
audit."
Management is, however,
allowed to take corrective
action in concert with an audit
to reduce potential harm to tax-
payers and patrons.
Which is what the library did
in certain instances, Cool said,
noting that the report doesn't
annotate that.
"One of the biggest issues
was the donation of books to
Friends of the Library," Cool
said. "Mary Myers' procedures
were being followed by every
other library we know of."
Nonetheless, Cool said the
audit advised and the county
complied with a change that
requires county commission
approval before unloading
donated items.
During an interview with the
News-Sun on Friday, time con-
straints limiting the meeting to
35 minutes, Myers said she
needed more time to review the
audit report.
"Libraries are the bastion of
freedom," Myers said.
"Without an informed citizenry
we wouldn't have the United
States of America."
Myers was Lake Placid's

The new COS would provide

previous Hubble instruments in

ity to conduct research until

first paid, full-time librarian in
1988 and has been with the
Highlands County Library
System since.
In addition to her director
duties for the county library,
she is also the Heartland
Library Cooperative coordina-
tor.
"The cooperative has been a
wonderful thing for this area,"
she said.
In a June e-mail to her hus-
band Fred Myers, who is
employed in the county engi-
neer's office, Myers expressed
concern that "they" wanted to
dissolve the cooperative.
"That was just my feeling,"
she told the News-Sun on
Friday, explaining that the audit
in several places recommends
separating the co-op from the
county.
Effective Nov. 1, Brooker
ceased providing any services
to the cooperative.
"Due to the seriousness of
these issues, as well as lack of
cooperation and lack of com-
mitment to immediate correc-
tion of these findings, I regret to
inform you that my office will
discontinue providing services
to the Heartland Library
Cooperative," Brooker said in a
Sept. 22 letter to Paul Erickson,
cooperative board chairman.
The divorce means the
Highlands clerk no longer
assists the co-op with account-


face well above the atmosphere,
is highly important to gather
this type of information.
The COS will allow efficient
observation of numerous faint
extragalactic and galactic ultra-
violet targets.
The light analyzed can pro-
vide important information by
determining the types of
volatile gasses in distant atmos-
pheres.
McPhate is in Washington to
provide support during the
retesting of this project.
"It was deemed prudent to do
some system level testing on
the instrument, as it had sat
mostly dormant for three years
before launch," McPhate said.
"These are the tests that are
being conducted no\w and that 1
% ill be supporting for the neti


ing, asset management, com-
puter services and software pur-
chases. Brooker is removing his
name from the cooperative's
clearing account check stock.
"Since all of this I haven't
had any conversations with
(Myers) about retirement or
anything," Cool said, explain-
ing that Myers had mentioned
retiring at some point before the
audit began. "We're not saying
what We're going to do. We
have more facts coming in."
Cool said a meeting between
Helms and Myers at 2 p.m.
Friday was to check on how
things are going for her.
Responding to Myers' con-
cern in June that her job was
under attack, her husband
wrote, "I wouldn't be upset if
you retired altogether. ... And,
life would be easier without the
hassle of the co-op. Or, they
could make it a job in itself and
you could apply for it as sec-
ondary employment."
"I consider this a work in
progress," he said of the audit,
which still requires his respons-
es on several issues.
On Wednesday, the News-
Sun will look into findings of
fines and fees issues that result-
ed into a patron's library card
that had a balance of more than
$300,000.
Friday, the paper will visit 87
alleged instances of unautho-
rized travel.


several weeks."
The primary science objec-
tives of the mission are the
study of the origins of large
scale structure in the universe,
the formation and evolution of
galaxies, and the origin of stel-
lar and planetary systems and
the cold interstellar medium.


LAWSUIT
Continued from 1A
explaining that some records
were spread out among files. "If
they are available before that
we will notify you."
When he arrived at Topel's
office shortly after 2 p.m.
Friday, he alleges staff locked
him out. As he left the office, he
was told he had to sign in with
the receptionist.
Florida Statutes Title X,
Chapter 119, entitles any person
access to public records in a
"reasonable time, under reason-
able conditions, and under
supervision by the custodian of
the public records."
The statute allows for linmited
exceptions to keep certain
records confidential, requiring
custodians to cite the specific
statute exempting a record in
writing if the requester so


desires when blocking
access.
The statute doesn't require
that citizens identify them-
selves, state their reason or oth-
erwise specify which docu-
ments are sought for review.
Reasonable fees for copies
may be charged, and for time-
consuming requests that require
a staff member's presence,
agencies may charge a fee.
Colby's suit alleges he was
prevented from access, then
unlawfully required to identify
himself.
Some' meetings during the
Visioning process were not
properly noticed, Colby alleges.
"Failure to publicly notice
the steering committee meet-

ings void the recommendations
and other official actions taken
at these meeting," McCollum
said in the complaint, citing
meetings on Jan. 18, Feb. 2, and
Feb. 21, 2006.
"There are no public notices
prior to March 4, 2006," Topel
said in her Nov. 30 letter to
Colby. "The additional have
been viewed by you and are still
available for viewing."
The two-count lawsuit asks
the court to compel Topel make
available the requested records,
void all Visioning steering com-
mittee actions prior to March 6
and compensate Colby for rea-
sonable attorney fees, court
costs and other expenses the
judge deems "proper."

This \eek I had a wonderful
time working at a ob I'd never
want in real life.
That's because Linda Botwer
and Lora England. of Arcade
Grooming, had a little fun at
my expense.
Like trail \ear\ cowtboys
who passed off the unndable
horses to greenhorns fresh
from the east. these two -
otherw ise totall lIo els -
ladies lined up a succession of
unhappy dogs for me to bathe
or groom puppies who were
either too young to hate devel-
oped salon manners, or so old
the\ \\anted things done their
way.
There w as Rosie for exam-
ple. an elderly Shih-Tzu nux.
Very elderly as it turned out.
The poor thing had difficulty
balancing while England
trimmed the hair on her legs.
She needed m\ help to stay
standing
But'Rosie has also become
ver sensitive in her old age.
That complicated matters. She
shakes like a leaf in a hurri-
cane whenever certain parts of
her body are touched like
her paws, legs. belly, neck and
muzzle Part of my task was to
keep her still and calm. as well
as upright. Have you ever tried
to comfort a dog when it has
no interest in being comforted?
Good luck. is all I can say.
But Rosie \was a breeze

Pet groomer


A job that needs heart, skill and patience


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
'.' ii" s.',5 .
SEBRING Linda Bowter
owns and operates Arcade
Groonung. 113 W. Center A\e.
Her sister. Debra Ta\lor. and
good friend. Lora England
work alongside her.
A pet grooming establish-
ment is typically set up like a
barber shop. each cutter is inde-
pendent and rents space.
There is a t% ist to this tale.
When Bower. \who had \worked
for years in pet stores up in
Nlassachusetts. began training
as a groomer at the now defunct
\et Pets pet store in Sebnng. it
wa.s England who \\as her
teacher.
Then England left the field
for a fe\w \ears. While she \\as
awa Bower bought Arcade
Grooming. and she w welcomed
England back when England
decided to start working %with
animals again.
In terms of training. Bower
said there are animal grooming
schools. She kno\\s of one in
Bradenton and another in
Tampa. but she did not attend a
school, and doesn't know\ a
groomer \ ho has.
"I believe in the school of
hard knocks." she said. "What
the\ teach in those schools is so
basic, it doesn't help much.
There's just so much you can
only learn in real life."
Bo\er would train, but isn't
looking for groomers at the
moment.

"You have to have a knack,"

do it." added England. "they
can't handle doing it." She was
trimming a schnauzer mix
named Max who had just
nipped her on the hand, being
unhappy w ith the clippers. "Oh
you little stinker." England said
in a mild tone. while gently
redirecting the dog's muzzle
from'her hand. .
The dog settled down and;she
continued her work.
"The worst part is being
rushed," she said. "especially


for the dogs that need extra
attention. It takes time (to
groom a dog and it isn't always
easy.
And some of the work is just
plain messy. Groomers. for
example. evacuate the anus
gland as part of their service.
That means they ha\e to
squeeze either side of the anus

until a brown, goope.. very bad
smelling liquid squirts out \%ith
enough force to reach a per-


son's hair or face if they're not
careful.
But both women clearly
loved their work.
"You hate to be connected
with the dog." Bower said. "and
pay attention. Dogs are smart.
They know who they like, and
\who likes them."
"Dogs know\ your -oul."
England agreed. "'They sense
our emotions, and have their
own. Some dogs are shy and
tentative. others will knock \ou


down ii ith their wagging tail."
The best part. both women
agreed. \as that no tw\o days

DOGS
Continued from 11A
compared to an apricot colored
toy poodle named Angel.
Let's just say naming the
dog Angel was a case of wish-
ful thinking. She should have
been named Whirling Dervish
at the least.
That's because Angel, that
Cujo in poodle clothing,
squirmed, squiggled, wiggled,
and shook with only one goal
in mind to get as far away
from the clippers and comb as
fast as she could.
Three times shepulled her
way free from the restraining
halter.
I'd stick out the brush to
give her a stroke, and end up
grooming thin air.
"Grab her leg," said Bower,
after she caught her breath
from laughing.
I grabbed a back leg, which
flew up into the air as the dog
dove for the counter, trying to
break free.
This is a very small dog
mind you, and seemingly deli-
cate. I was afraid of snapping a
bone which gave the dog
an advantage; she knew I'd let
go before she had to give in; so
there we were at a stand still.
I had the shaggy little crea-
ture (its button eyes bright
with a hint of glee I swear)
clutched under my left arm;
my forehead beaded with
sweat.
But Angel, that canine gym-
nast from Hades, kept twisting
back and forth, all while lung-
ing frantically forward. Her
right rear leg, grasped in my
left hand, was held 90 degrees
out from where it should be,
she was pulling so hard. Yet,
she didn't seem to mind or
even notice.
Meantime, the electric clip-
pers in my right hand were
awkward and growing heavy.
The teeth of the cutting edges
are made of steel and move so
rapidly they blur. They get
very hot, so the groomers have
to spray them with a cooling
aerosol.
It made me nervous to use
them on bare skin. ne e% mind
on the thrashing doe. I '.Js so
afraid in fact. that Iheld the
blades out in the rmddle of the
air. You could drive a semi in
the space I left between the
poodle and the clippers.
Then, just as I braced myself
and finally started to shave her
belly, watching a small tuft of
hair curl away, Angel, that
shrew who would not be

tamed, uttered a high pitched,
piercing yelp of a bark, so
shattering in its intensity it
sounded exactly like a fire
alarm warning when its battery
is low. With her mouth fairly
near my ear, the sound sur-
prised and unnerved me, but
only made Bower laugh louder.
Not that she enjoys hearing
a puppy suffer, she just knows
a faker when she hears one -
before the end of the after-
noon, I heard other dogs make
that same blood curdling
sound, and sometimes when
they were just lying in wait,
relaxed on a blanket.
The key to animal groom-
ing, Bower said after she'd
enjoyed her last chuckle,
wiped her eyes, gotten herself
together and could talk and
breathe again was patience
and a steady hand working
smoothly.
As in most things in life it
just took time getting the dog
used to the process. For exam-
ple, dogs who are groomed
regularly have been known to
help, holding up a paw at just
the right time, she said.
When I asked her what
things pet owners can do to
make the grooming experience
easier on their animals, she and
England answered together and
immediately.
"Play with your dog," said
England.
"Brush your dog," said
Bower.
They were both making the
same point. When dogs are
used to being brushed, or hav-
ing their paws and toes
touched; once they get used to
the sound of the clippers and
the feel of the bath, most dogs
settle down and enjoy the
attention.
As for me well Angel,
that Joe Frazier of pugilistic
puppies, had me down for the.
count. This job is too much
work to woo me away from
writing. On the other hand, I
must admit, I never had such a
good time at failing.

Lora England gives Rosie, an elderly Shih Tzu mix, a careful trim-
ming. Rosie's skin has become very sensitive, and she is a little
cranky as a result. Being good % ith animals is as important for a
groomer as having skill with scissor and clippers. It takes about an
hour to bathe and groom an average dog. Grooming is essential for a
dog's good health, especially for longer haired breeds. Knotted coats,
and matted paws can cause severe problems.


Linda Bower trims the paw of a toy poodle. Hair grows between a
dog's toes, and can hamper its walk if let go too long. Spreading the
toes apart, the groomer removes the hair with two scooping motions,
like making melon balls, one in one direction, one in tld' olher. Thi
picture shois just hoss delicate, and difficult this kind of.rwork is. I

EDITORIALS/OPIN IONS




No prescription, just hassle


Someday, dear readers, prob-
ably a number of years from
now, I will be able to sit down
with my grandchildren and tell
them of the days you could buy
nasal decongestant off the shelf.
"Yep," I'll say, rocking in my
rocking chair, "in those days we
could just pick the box up off
the shelf and take it to the cash
register."
And my grandchildren will
look at me with wide eyes and
say, "Gee, Grandma, you're
old."
Now, before anyone makes
any assumptions, there is at this
moment no grandchildren in my
near future. That day is years
away. And that is fine with me -
John and James have enough in
their lives without marriage at
the moment.
My point in the above intro-
duction is that there was a time
nasal decongestant was consid-
ered a fairly benign substance.
You bought it, paid for it, and
took it as needed. This was how
the world \worked.
Then some idiot discovered


you could use the
ingredient pseu-
doephedrine in this
legal medicinal
product to make


LAURA'S LOOK

Laura Ware


something illegal.,
And toxic. And
dangerous.
That illegal product is called
methamphetamine, and I agree
it is not a good thing. Meth labs
have sprung up in the country,
and they are deadly even if you
don't take the drug and meth
is definitely not good for you.
But what has happened iis
that the way the powers that be
have decided to solve the prob-
lem is that they have decided to
make products containing pseu-
doephedrine harder for every-
one to get. And a hassle.
In case you have been able to
avoid this, let me describe what
happened to me yesterday when
I went to get some nasal decon-
gestant for my mother-in-law.
I went to my usual pharmacy,
and after a few moments, locat-
ed the shelf that once held
boxes of this medicine. Instead,


it now held cards
with pictures of the
cover of the medi-
cine, which you
had to take to the


pharmacy cash
register.
So first, for this medicinal
product that does not require a
prescription, I had to stand in
line. That was hurdle number
one.
Next, it is not enough to sim-
ply go to the cash register and
ask for this stuff. You have to be
over 18 years old to get your
box of nasal decongestant. They
ask for identification whether or
not you look older than 18.
Hurdle number two..
So the very nice cashier who
was new on the job (so of
course the poor girl gets me as a
customer) has to punch in about
a million things for me to get
this medicine, including my dri-
%er's license number and. I sus-
pect, my height, weight, and the
number of chocolate chip cook-
ies I ate that day.
The poor girl had to do it not


once, but twice, because I want-
ed two boxes and the first time
she accidentally indicated I
wanted three of them. See, you
can only purchase so many
boxes of nasal decongestant
during a given time period.
Finally, I had to sign some-
thing affirming that yes, I was
over 18. Then and only then
was I allowed to take my pills
home.
I don't buy cigarettes or
booze, but I am willing to bet I
would have a far easier time
purchasing either one than I did
buying some legal medicine for
legal use.
Yeah, there are bigger prob-
lems in the world today than
having to jump hoops to buy
some medicine.
But am I the only one who is
ticked off that once again, a few
people with no, brains have
made life a little harder for the
rest of us?

dent. E-mail her at bookworm-

It is a form of


dual taxation

Editor:
I received a fl\er in the mail
a couple of days ago stating
"Attention Seniors, it's official,
Social Security can be taxed up
to 85 percent."
I have a couple of questions
to ask. Is this a scare tactic to
get us to sign up for some-
thing?
We paid taxes on that money
when we worked and earned it.
Isn't this double taxation? Isn't
it illegal?
Second question: Did the
voters get a chance to vote on
"Impact Fees," isn't this illegal
also, is this what you call
.democracy? ..- ;, ,

Communist Russia. the govern-
ment stole the land and forced
the people into Gulags. In
America, the government taxes
the people off their land, so
what's the difference?
We do not have democracy
in America. We have a cross
between capitalism and social-
ism.

W ill soldiers

fight for jobs?
Editor:.
Support our troops, not
thieves \\ho are stealing their
jobs while the\ are in a foreign
nation fighting and gi ing of
their lives for another nation.
Will they have to fight in the
streets to regain jobs that are
given to illegals?
This problem is happening in
France as I write. Riots.of large
magnitude over the right to a
living wage and any type of
job. There are no jobs
Americans will not do.. There
are only industries including
farms who refuse to pay a liv-
ing wage. No industry 'in this
nation needs cheap slave labor.
Labor cost is only a very small
percentage of running a busi-
ness. It is time that American
tax payers stop paying the
health care arid subsidizing
wages for green cards, guest
workers, or illegals.
This flood of thieves, guest
workers and illegals is an inva-
sion of America and the work-
ing class should vote out of
office all politicians who aid or
abet criminals.
These same politicians who
vote to send our young men
and women to fight an illegal
war are, voting to allow our
workforce and their jobs to be
put up for grabs to job thieves
from all over the world. A liv-
ing wage is only a very small
part of the cost for any industry
including farming and there is
no job Americans will not do,
including putting their lies on
the line so other countries all
over the world can enjoy the
fruits of their labor. We are
repaid in turn by other nations
sending their masses to destroy
the fruits of our labor.
There is nothing as criminal
as those who would steal your
job.

All corporations, all church-
es, all labor unions, all institu-
tions, all people who knowing-
ly hire illegals are no better and
are criminals themselves.
The churches \ho condone
the conduct of their priesthood
and all churches should look to
clean up their own house. The
illegal acts against children and
the act of trying to fill up their
coffers with illegal coins. ,
Christ drove the money
changers from his temple.
Illegal? What part of illegal
does the public servant not
understand? Aiding a criminal
makes the person aiding that
criminal a criminal.
Those aspiring to public
office or holding public office,
who are criminals cannot hold
public office nor can they run
for public office.
Are we a nation of laws?
Those congressmen and sena-
tors who vote amnesty are
criminals and should be treated
as such. We well know that
public officials of both parties
are prostitutes for corporations,
who have ignored the working
class and have committed trea-
son for the last 50 years, allow-
ing industry to steal the pen-
sions, health care and death
benefits from millions of
Americans, as well as driving
down the wage scale of all
Americans.
Inviting people from all over
the world to the jobs they have
not already outsourced'to
nations all over the world, forc-
ing the American taxpayer to
pay for health care for millions
of non-citizens from all over
the world when these same
American taxpayers cannot pay
for their own health care.
As I said before, next elec-


tion at the polls, any person
who aided a criminal should be
challenged or contested on vot-
ing or running on any ticket. By
law, they are not allowed to run
or hold any office in the United
States.
After all, we are a nation.of
laws.

More like Sands

are needed
Editor:
I was delighted to see the
article concerning Roger Sands
in Sunday's paper (News-Sun;
Nov. 26). It was great and Mr.
Sands is more than deserving.
I am fortunate to have him as
my mail man. He always has a
smile and a wave and is more
than willing (without being
asked) to help with the mail or
packages. He is a gentleman
and a good person.
We need more people like
Roger Sands.

Parade was a

great treat
Editor:
I want to thank the City of
Avon Park, Dave Greenslade
and all the others who made the
Christmas Parade a success
another year. Yes, we did have
a little rain that tried to dampen
the holiday spirit but it didn't.
The. kids from age 2 to 92
wouldn't let that happen.
The greatest treat for the


Veterans of Foreign Wars of
Post 9853 and. the Iadies
Auxiliary was to have a float in
the parade thanks to John
and Bern Nags and the Nagys'
neighbors "The Ble ins." Post
Commander Jim Bass,
Auxiliary President Foy Parrish
and Post Adjunct Garry Parrish.
The highlight for the auxiliary
was when they presented the

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that a Declaration of
Taking has been filed in the above styled
cause by the Petitioner, Florida Power Corpo-
ration, for condemnation of a Permanent Fa-
cilities Easement and a Temporary Construc-
tion Easement, said property being located in
Highlands County, Florida, and more particu-
larly described in the Petition files herein for
the purpose of constructing a new 69kV
trans-
mission line in.Highlands County. This trans-
mission line will be constructed from the
Company's Highlands County substation to
the proposed new Lake Placid North substa-
tion which is to be located in Highlands Coun-
ty Florida, said transmission line being a dis-
tance of approximately 1.86 miles. The sub-
ject transmission line will enhance and main-
tain the reliability and integrity of the Compa-
ny's electric system and improve the availabil-
ity of low-cost electric energy within the State
of Florida.
The subject transmission line is deemed
necessary by the Company's projection analy-
sis in order to adequately serve the residen-
tial, commercial and industrial customer load
growth'that is developing in Highlands County
and to enhance the integrity of the electrical
transmission network in this area. In the ab-
sence of the construction of the proposed
transmission line to provide additional power,
the reliability of the electrical grid may be sub-
stantially impacted. The subject line is de-
signed to minimize the risk of brownouts and
blackouts that may occur during system con-
tingencies, outages or other failures. The


subject transmission line will allow the Com-
pany to provide additional transmission ca-
pacity and support, enhance its capacity to
operate an integrated electric power system
and perform its statutory obligation of public
serve as required by Chapter 366, Florida
Statutes and the Service-Rules and Regula-
tions prescribed by the Florida Public Service

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Simply


divine
Has a phenomenon ever
left you speechless until the
words "simply divine"
spilled forth precisely
expressing your true evalu-
ation?
Or have you %w witnessed
the outward expression of a
person's heart in unselfish,
sacrificial actions sup-
posedly unnoticed? You are
in the presence of the "sim-
ply divine."
It's that "simply divine"
perspective of Christmas
that should enthrall us.
But quite often we are
swallowed up by the festiv-
ities of the season and its
aesthetic atmosphere. So
many things please our eyes
and senses during the holi-
da\s. Retailers allure us
with fascinating items beg-
ging us to recreate
Christmas earlier. New%
trees. music boxes, outdoor
figures and displays appear
in the stores before the fall
season is full) upon us.
We're charmed b\ it all
and we think it's simplI
di\ ine. But. it's not.
Rather. \e need to be
captivated by '. hat is truly
divine. In fact the \words
simple\ divine seem incon-
sistent 'with each other.
Ho% can something divine,
which is or has the nature
of God, be simple'
Yet in God's infinite w is-
dom. he has taken simphs-
tic things that we can see.
touch and understand and
has swept across them \ ith
his div inity. And in that
sense. "simply diimne" is
indeed possible.
"Simply divine" \was a
tiny baby that arrived in a
stable of animals and slept
in a borrowed trough for a
crib.
God looked do\ n on the
world he created, on the
people meant to reflect him
and his lo\e. He saw\ the sin
that marred them and kept
them from him and he
lo\ed them still. So. he set
to \ork to remed\ it
through dil\ine intervention
He used a smuply de\ot-
ed. young handmaiden.
Mary. who loved God and
served him and didn't
\orrn about her reputation
being put on the line. He
entrusted Mary to a simple
carpenter. Joseph. \ ho
chose to obey the an-el of
the Lord and keep Mary as
his betrothed even
though he didn't understand
how, she could be a virgin
ca rnin the divine Son of
God.
He connected angels w ith
common shepherds in the
field to be the first e\ angels
of the good new s as record-
ed in Luke 2:10 and 11,
NIV.
"Do not be afraid. I bring
you good news of great joy
that will be for all the peo-
ple. Today in the too n of
David a Savior has been
born to you: he is Christ the
Lord."
And though the angels.
words and appearance. in
the sky dlv inely dazzled the
shepherds, the place they
found the Son of God was
humble, unpretentious and
yes, simple.
Be capti\ ated by God's
love gift and receive the
"simply divine." Selah

et ini the holiday spirit "hen "'A Modern-

Charles Dickens' masterpiece, is totally
performed by kids at Highlands Little
Theatre.
One of the adult ad\ isors is like lMcMillian. who
said. "Thjs is the first youth production at HLT. The\
chose the production. auditioned the kids. everything.
It is all theirs and they're done a great job. I hope this
%\ill be successful so that it can be presented e\ery
year.
Director Chris Friend. 14. feels the kids are ener-
getic and ready to go. "This is good for youth and
also for HLT. Both kids and adults \\ill enjoy this as
family\ entertainment. It \will

Austin Westergom. 10.
likes the plot of this story. He's not only seen the
movie, but is also reading it in class. "Although this
\\as mi first time acting. I'd watched Mom direct
before and it %was sort of familiar."


Brittan Jividen, 14. feels it's been a great experi-
ence and \aants to be able to do it again. Sammy Jo
\iera. 14. felt the best part of the experience \\as
being someone else.
Heather Lemos is 15 and the music
director/choreographer. "This \\as a cool experi-
ence and a great opportunity for the kids.
although they had to juggle school and home-
\work. workingg \\ith the kids and to finally see
it come to stage after \\ailing such a long time
is a pleasure. This is a good night out and a
s\eet family stor\," Lemos said.
Tracy Finney's four children are all in the
play and said. "I'm a prop mom: in charge of
the props. The adults ha\e helped, but the
kids ha\e really done it all on this modem
Dickens storN. It sho\%s off each person's skill
and talent. The '\ve not only learned technical
aspects like blocking, but also discipline. And
they've become better at interacting."
This is the first play for Daniel Finney. 11.

"The best part is I get
to scare my sisters. It
\as kind of hard act-
ing. but I liked it.
And I made new\


friends."
Kaitlin Finney. 13, said. "I
get to be myself because I'm
sort of like the character. It's
lots of fun to act and get to
know others."
Jonathan Finney. 9. said,
"I had to remember to speak
loud, and have learned a lot
about acting. My favorite

News-Sun correspondent
"Maln be we could sell my antique
saW..' Brent said.
Brent had mentioned this tool a num-
ber of times always with sentimental-
ity. Molly hadn't e\er seen it, but she
knew it meait a lot to him.
"Are you sure?" she questioned.
"Yes, it's just collecting dust in the
attic. It's not something I can use. It's
too fragile." he replied.
Selling the saw had come up because
they were trying to hasten setting a wed-
ding date. Both had been married before
and were close to their mid-30s, they
knewt marriage to each other was defi-
nitely going to happen. It was just a


question of when.
They wNanted to start
off on sound financial
footing since they
would be bringing two
families together.
Right no\w. though.
they had a few mone-
tary hurdles to over-
come.
When Brent finally
unveiled the saw,
Molly was surprised to
see that it actually


i f .I.: t, F EFI2WE- LE A I E W P a'''


resembled a piece of
furniture.
"Are you sure?" she questioned again.
"Yes," he said. 'Being together is far
more important to me than the saw."
So, they set out to market it. They
made phone calls, set up appointments.
and took the saw to as many dealers as
they could find. After several weeks of
intense searching, they discovered it
wasn't as easy to sell at the price they
desired as they had thought it would be.
Frustrated, they looked each other in
the eye and decided to \ ait.
Interestingly, waiting proved to be the
best thing they could have done.
It took time for the children to accept
and trust each of them as parents and
develop a sense of family; to learn how
to talk through many issues and plans for


the future; and, to.
choose the best place
to live. Had they been
able to sell the saw at
an acceptable price,
they may have birthed
their new family pre-
maturely.
As it was, nine
months went by before
a \wedding date could
be set. But, in those
nine months, the lungs
of communication


developed more fully;
the heart of love, cooperation and trust
emerged stronger creating a greater
sense of security in their newly develop-
ing family. And the spirit of acceptance
and purpose developed.
These things may have ripened over
time; but, not in the same natural pro-
gression that only faith, patience and
perseverance produced.
At last, the day came. And it was
worth the wait.
The antique saw now reminds them of
the blessing of waiting on the Lord and
his timing. Much like a full-term baby
that has a head start to grow and mature;
so Brent and Molly's new family was
better equipped to face any storms or
challenges that would come their way.


Warm-up time
When urgency pushes you to abandon
what's important for your family, it,s
time to reevaluate. Are emotions ruling
rather than sound judgment?

Sit-up and take notice
If the relationship is getting strained
by frenzied activity and unfair demands
upon everyone's time, don't be afraid to
admit it and look at the problem from a
different angle.

Curl-up together
When a positive turning point helps
refocus you to the original purpose and
design intended, flag it as a reminder for
future turning points that are bound to
come. Then with arms around each
other, bask in the security it brings.

Soul fitness
"For this very reason, make every
effort to add to your faith goodness,
knowledge, self-control, perseverance,
godliness, brotherly kindness and love.
For if you possess these qualities in
increasing measure, they will keep you
from being ineffective and unproductive
in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus
Christ." 2 Peter 1: 5-8, NIV.

DIVERSIONS



Early stimulation promotes children's learning ability


Question:
What causes a child to be a
"slow learner" one who just
doesn't learn like other children
in the classroom?
Dr. Dobson:
There are many hereditary,
environmental and physical fac-
tors that contribute to one's
intellect, and it is difficult to
isolate the particular influences.
For many children who have
difficulty in school, we will
never know precisely why their
ability to learn is limited. Let
me tell you what is now known
about intellectual development
that may explain some but
not all cases of learning
deficits.
Accumulating evidence
seems to indicate that some
children who are slow learners
and even those who have bor-
derline retardation may not
have received proper intellectu-
al stimulation in their very early
years. There appears to be a
critical period during the first
three to four years when the
potential for intellectual growth
must be seized. There are
enzyme systems in the brain
that must be activated during
this brief window. If the oppor-
tunity is missed, the child may
never reach his capacity.
Children who grow up in
deprived circumstances are
more likely to be slow learners.
They may not have heard adult
language regularly. They may
not have been provided with
interesting books and puzzles to


stimulate their senso-
ry apparatus. They
may not have been
taken to the zoo, the
airport or other excit-
ing places. They may
not have received
daily training and
guidance from adults.
This lack of stimula-
tion may inhibit the
brain from develop-
ing properly.
The effect of early
stimulation on living
brains has been stud-
ied in several fasci-
nating animal experi-
ments. In one study,


'





Focus
ON THE
FAMILY

Dr. James
Dobson


researchers divided littermate
rats into two identical groups.
The first was given maximum
stimulation during the first few
months of life. These rats were
kept in well-lighted cages, sur-
rounded by interesting paddle
wheels and other toys. They
were handled regularly and
allowed to explore outside their
cages. They were subjected to
learning experiences and then
rewarded for remembering.
The second group lived the
opposite kind of existence.
These rats crouched in dimly
lit, drab, uninteresting cages.
They were not handled or stim-
ulated in any way, and were not
permitted outside their cages.
Both groups were fed identical-
ly.
At 105 days of age, the rats
were sacrificed to permit exam-
ination of their neurological


apparatus. The
researchers were sur-
prised to find that the
high-stimulation rats
had brains that dif-
fered in several
important ways: (1)
the cortex (the think-
ing part of the brain)
was thicker and
wider; (2) the blood
supply was much
more abundant; (3)
the enzymes neces-
sary for learning
were more sophisti-
cated. The
researchers conclud-
ed that the stimula-


tion experienced during the first
group's early lives had resulted
in more advanced and complex
brains.
It is always risky to apply
conclusions from animal
research directly to humans, but
the same kinds of changes prob-
ably occur in the brains of high-
ly stimulated children. If par-
ents want their children to be
capable, they should begin by
talking to them at length while
the) are still babies. Interesting
mobiles and winking-blinking
toys should be arranged around
the crib. From then on through
the toddler years, learning
activities should be pro-
grammed regularly.
Of course, parents must
understand the difference
between stimulation and pres-
sure. Providing books for a 3-_
year-old is stimulating.


Ridiculing and threatening him
because he can't read them is
pressuring. Imposing unreach-
able expectations can have a
damaging effect on children.
If early stimulation is as
important as it now appears,
then the lack thereof may be a
leading cause of learning
impairment among schoolchild-
ren. It is imperative that parents
take the time and invest their
resources in their children. The
necessity for providing rich,
edifying experiences for young
children has never been as obvi-
ous as it is today.
Question:
What do you think of the
phrase, "Children should be
seen and not heard?"
Dr. Dobson:
That statement reveals a pro-
found ignorance of children and
their needs. I can't imagine how
any loving adult could raise a
vulnerable little boy or girl by
that philosophy. Children are
like clocks; they must be
allowed to run!

Woman offended by dates who can't stop playing the field


Dear Abby:
.I'm an attractive, single, 30-
year-old woman who has some
hang-ups and problems dating
like anyone. But my most
annoying and recurring prob-
lem is this:
For some reason, the men I
date have the need to point out
other attractive women to me.
Sometimes it's a passing,
"There was an attractive girl
there, and she, said- .." And
somedLmes it's, 'She's hot!"
about a woman on television,
and the list goes on.
I once heard a saying, "One
should never speak of one beau-
tiful woman in the presence of
another," and it bothers me a lot
when they do this. I don't do
that to the men I date, as I find
it disrespectful.
Am I silly for feeling this
way? And if not, how can I tell


them politely to stop?
Wants To Be ,-.

Dear Wants To Be
Respected: .
I used to feel the
same way you do -
threatened if some-
one I was with men-
tioned .that someone
else was attractive. DEAR
What a waste of ener-
gy. Then I realized. Jeanne
that once itwas out,,.,
of their mouths, it
was usually out of their heads,
and I relaxed and didn't let it
get to me.
However, because you have
mentioned to these men that it
bothers you and they persist, try
giving them a dose of their own
medicine. If a hunk appears on
screen, elbow them and say,
"Oooh, isn't he hot?" or,


rM


"Doesn't he have the
cutest little tush?"
Then watch their
reaction. Perhaps if
they find themselves
on the receiving end,
they'll learn empa-
thy. I can't guarantee
it will work, but it's
worth a try.
ABBY Dear Abby:
SI am a freshman in
Phillips college. I just bought
"= my Christmas cards,
but.I need to know a
little bit about proper etiquette
in sending them out. My con-
cern is regarding my friends
who still live with their parents.
Would it be inappropriate to
address the card oulN to my
friends? Would it be better to
address the card to my friend
and then write a short message
inside alorig the lines of,


"Wishing you and your family a
happy holiday?" I'm confused
and want to do the right thing.
Lauren In Lexington, Ky.
Dear Lauren:
It's certainly proper to
address the Christmas cards to
your friends only. However, I
think the idea of including the
rest of the family in the greeting
is thoughtful and sweet. It
would offend no one and please
everyone, and that, by defini-
tion. is good-manners. -

ARTS & LEISURE



Listen to symphony orchestra music at library


One of the special surprises
at the recent Amy Grant concert
was her obvious love of sym-
phonic music, as she showcased
the symphony orchestra, which
backed her, and also played sev-
eral numbers with her seated,
listening to their rich sounds.
Not many singers are eager to
give up their time in front of an
audience in order for their
musicians to shine, so Amy's
decision to allow the lush har-
monies of the orchestra to have
center stage, was certainly
enjoyed by all the music lovers
there.
With the approach of Pearl
Harbor Remembrance Day on
Thursday, Dec. 7, I am remind-
ed of the wonderful orchestral
score by Richard Rodgers of the


26-episode World War II docu-
mentary, "Victory at Sea." Our
television viewing in the 1950s
may have been in black and
white, but the dramatic theme
music of this series was for
man\ of us a colorful introduc-
tion into the %world of symphony
orchestras.
Maybe you listened to radio
programs like "The Lone
Ranger" and neter knew that its
theme music, played b\ a sym-
phony orchestra., as the catal-
rn charge finale of the "William
Tell Overture." Classical music
from Wagner. Tchaiko\sky,
Liszt. and Mendelssohn was
also included in this long-run-
ning radio and then television
sho-w. Perhaps only the dedicat-
ed classical music fan can listen


to the "William Tell
Overture" and not
feel the impulse to
yell "Hi-yo Silver,
away."
Theme music of
memorable mo ies
sometimes ends up as
piped-in music in fast
food joints as well as LIBRAi
at malls. If you've LIB

A Christmas concert like no other


On Sunday, Dec. 10,
Highlands Hammock State Park
will have the unique opportuni-
ty to welcome Highlands piper
David Hiatt Batty for a unique
performance of favorite holiday
carols.
Batty, dressed in full
Highlands regalia, will play his
black wood bagpipes at 2 p.m.
in the park's picnic area.
Batty's bagpipes, handcraft-
ed by Edinborough pipe maker
R.L. Glenn of Scotland, are
more than 50 years old. He has
been playing the bagpipes for
about 20 years. "It took me
about seven years to teach
myself how to play this intrigu-
ing instrument," Batty shared.
"I am touching living history
each time I pick up my bag-
pipes, as they represent an
entire nationality to many peo-
ple."
These traditional, historical
instruments reach back as far as
a Chaldean sculpture of a bag-
pipe that dates from 4,000 B.C.
The historical aspect of the


Highlands bagpipe
will be shared during
Batty's performance,,
as will the signifi-
cance of his regula-
tion outfit.
He will appear in
full Highlands
regalia, his kilt of the
Baillie Clan tradi--
tion, an official:
Glengarry or piper,
hat, and a Scottish
sporran or purse that
is worn for dress per-
formances. "All
aspects of my uni-

form will be explained during
my performance," Batty said.,
Batty has uniquely adapted
many of everyone's favorite
Christmas carols for the bag-
pipe. Plan on hearing "Deck the
Halls," "Do You Hear What I
Hear," "God Rest Ye Merry
Gentlemen," "Joy to the
World," 'O Holy Night" and
many other well-loved and
well-known favorites of the
Christmas season played.


"It is my intention
to present this per-
formance as a tribute
to those having
served and currently
serving in the U.S.-
military," Batty said.
"As well, all ages will
find this performance
to be enjoyable and
educational."
Singing along is
welcome, so be sure
to bring the young-
sters to this unusual
Christmas concert.
There is no fee for the


performance; participants only
pay the usual $4 per vehicle
park admission fee. Bring lawn
chairs or perhaps a blanket to sit
on, and picnic baskets or cool-
ers are welcome. The
Hammock Inn will be open
until 4 p.m. serving lunches,
snacks and drinks.

Dorothy Harris is a park servic-
es specialist at Highlands
Hammock State Park, Sebring.

Captus will be performing at South Florida Community College Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

SFCC Chamber Series presents Cantus


AVON PARK Cantus, a male vocal ensem-
ble of nine voices, will delight an audience with
its unique.sound at the South Florida Community
College University Center Auditorium at 7:30
p.m. Thursday at the SFCC Highlands campus.
Cantus enjoys a vigorous schedule of national
tours, subscription concerts in the twin cities of
Minneapolis and Saint Paul, several innovative
residencies, collaborations, educational pro-
grams, and recordings. Cantus is known for its
broad repertoire, bold ensemble singing, and
engaging stage presentation.
Cantus, repertoire spans all periods and gen-
res, including contemporary works, art songs,
early music, world music, and pop. The ensemble
regularly commissions new works. Recently,
Cantus premiered "A True Heart is Waiting" by
Twin Cities composer Edie Hill, which will be
performed during their visit to SFCC.
The variety of music Cantus will perform


ranges from songs of the sea to Christmas songs.
This versatile group has been in existence for 10
years.
The season co-sponsors for the Chamber
Series are Dr. Antonio and Dorie Roa, Dennis and
Melanie Bassetti, Dr. Richard and Elina
Campbell, and the Highlands Today. There are
also two sponsors specifically for this special
performance. They are Jean and Larry Lindemer
and Highlands Jewelers/Charles and Francis
Stuart.
Individual tickets range from $20 to $25 and
may be purchased online 24 hours a day, seven
days a week at www.southflorida.edu. Tickets

Office at 784-7178 or by visiting the box office
located at the front of the SFCC Auditorium, 600
West College Drive, Highlands campus, from
11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.


SFCC Artist Series presents Jose Feliciano


Synthetic dyes were invented in the
mid 19th century. But until that point,
natural items were used to dye fibers
and fabrics for many thousands of
years. The history of natural dyes is
very interesting. Egyptian mummies
have been found wrapped in cloth
dyed from the madder plant.
Clothing and fabrics were hand
dyed using mostly plant sources. The
following plants and foods will make
natural dyes when boiled in water (3
parts water tol2 parts food):
Red Cherries, birch bark (gath-
ered from the ground), cranberries
Yellow Goldenrod, onion skin,
willow tree leaves, marigolds, orange
peels

Rose Willow bark (gathered from ground)
or crushed willow twigs, fresh beets
Purple Blackberries, elderberries
Blue Red cabbage leaves, sunflower seeds
Green Carrot tops, grass clippings,
spinach. moss
Tan Walnut shells, tea leaves, instant cof-
fee
Tie-dying T-shirts or other clothing is a fun
project you could try using natural dyes. To pre-
pare your dye, bring the water and food to a full
boil, then simmer for at least one hour to make
dye strong enough to color the fabric.
Twist up sections of the shirt or fabric you
want to dye and use rubber bands to hold the


( twisted sections tight. Then dip the fab-
ric into the dye. You may have to let the
fabric soak for awhile (so make sure
the fabric is tied tight). I would suggest
starting with the lighter colored dyes
first if using more than one color. You
may also want to wear gloves and
make sure you protect your work space
|- .. with a drop cloth or newspaper in case
it gets messy. There are great resources
FROM on the internet that can show you dif-
E ferent folding techniques that result in
different designs.
SHED You may also consider treating the
fabric with a mordant. This will help
Abbey cotton fabrics to retain the colored dye
S through many washings. Aluminum
potassium sulfate (alum) from a phar-
macy or craft store is the best choice. To pretreat
the fabric, measure 3/4 teaspoon alum plus 1/4
teaspoon cream of tartar per each quart of water
in your dye bath. Dissolve this in a cup of hot
water, then add it to a pot of water (1 quart of
water per each ounce offabric). Wet the fabric to
ensure penetration, then add it to the mordant
solution. Heat slowly at a simmer for one hour.
Remove the pot from the heat; cool and rinse the
fabric before adding it to the dye bath.

Lake Placid notches first win


Keep host Avon Park

winless in the process,
By SCOTT DRESSEL
AVON PARK If you're going to get sour
first \\in of the season. it might as well come at
the expense of a county rival.
Of course, both the A on Park Red Devils and
the Lake Placid Green Dragons had that thought
heading into Frida night's clash at Joe Franza
Stadium. but onl\ one could make it come true.
Using a stingy defense to turn aw\a3 several
Aon Park challenges and rio goals and an assist
from team captain Hugo Vasquez. it \%as the
Dragons that broke into the \\in column with a 3-
0 % victory.
"It's all~a\s nice to beat a county rival and it's
especially nice % hen it's our first win of the sea-
son." Lake Placid coach Joshua \irkler said. "I


hope it will gi\e e he guys a little bit of confi-
dence."
Despite being shut out, it \wa the De\ils (0-6i
who controlled the attack, keeping the ball on
Lake Placid's end of the pitch for most of the
game. But those attacks never yielded a,clean


shot on goal.
Lake Placid

The Dragons 11-4i. ho\\e\er.
took advantage of their limited
opportunities. In the 10th minute.
Vasquez got a run down the left
side and fed a perfect centering
pass to K\ le Thompson. \ ho found
the net on a nice sliding shot from
seen lards out.


Seen minutes later. Vasquez got a breakaw\ai
right up the middle of the field complete,
unchallenged b. the Avon Park defense and
punched a shot into the bottom-right corner of the
frame for a 2-0 lead that stood at halfrume.

David Pierce closes in Friday night. Vasquez scored two goals and
had an assist in the Dragons' 3-0 win.

History Lesson
40 Years Ago
Dec. 3.1966: The Lake
Placid Lions Club played
the Lake Placid Athletic
Association in a unique
game of basketball at the
high school gymnasium as
a fund-raiser for the
Athletic Association in
-which the players rode
"donkey-back." Every par-
ticipant rode on the back of
their own donkey, which
was fitted with rubber
shoes so as not to damage
the gym floor. It wasn't
uncommon for players to
be tossed from their don-
key's back as the Athletic
Association team won 12-
10.

Harris said the team \would have prac-

the game against Lakeland's Dreadnaughts
at 6 p.m
The Green Dragons kept hustling their
\\as back into the game with some great
shooting by guard Bradley Williams. who
scored a game-high 30 points, and a be\y
of steals. But in the end, coach Le\'
Williams and the Green Dragons also
showed e% idence of the infant season with
a pile of traveling violationss and errant
passes.
A.C. Wilson opened game scoring with
a 3-pointer just under a minute into the
contest and Brandon Diaz-Azcanti added
another follo\king a turnover to open up a
6-0 Sebring lead. Williams jump-started
the Dragons with two field goals. but Sam
Robinson knocked down another 3-pointer

NOTCHES
Continued from 1D
The closest the Devils came
to getting on the scoreboard
was in the seventh minute when
Frantz Bellus had a clean look
at the goal from the left wing,
only to have his shot deflected
wide right on a great sliding
play from Roberto Matthieu.
"We just need to learn how to
,finish," Avon Park coach Jason
Dent said. "That was our prob-
lem last night and our problem
tonight. We've only had one
goal (other than penalty kicks).
We had as many, if not more,
opportunities than they did
(tonight), we've just got to fin-
ish. We're going to work on that
next week."
S The second half melted into a
foul-fest, with both teams howl-
ing about controversial calls'
more than they were pressing
the attack.
"Quite frankly, I thought that
second half was maybe the
most uninspiring half of foot-
ball I've seen from either
team," Virkler said. "It was
awful. Nobody played very
well. There -was a lot of fouling
and some people got kind of
insane, but I'm glad we played


well enough to get the win.
That's what counts."
The lone goal of the second
half came in the 59th minute
when Vasquez curled a 21-yard
free kick around the Avon Park
wall of defenders and into the
net.
"The fact (Avon Park) spent


a lot of time in our goal is a
check in their favor," Virkler
said. "They put out a lot of
effort. We didn't do a good job
of winning the ball in the air.
We're going to have to work a
lot on winning the ball with our
heads if we want to beat other
teams."

Jerry Thompson gives corner workers the thumbs up from his newly refurbished 1969 Corvette after a
seven-lap practice session Saturday morning. The Fall Classic at SIR culminates with a four-hour
endurance race this afternoon.

Sebring Historic Fall Classic


'New' 1969 Corvette brings


back memories of the past


By TREY CHRISTY
News-Sun
SEBRING The adrenaline
rush that is road racing doesn't
stop for some.
Back in 1969, Jerry
Thompson, of Penns) lhjia,
won the SCCA National
Championship in his class driv-
ing a brand new Corvette.'
Flash forward to 2006.
Thompson's now-classic
Corvette sold last year after
being refurbished for $550,000.
"Thari \\as a little much for
me," Thompson' said. But he
still wanted to race a classic '69
corvette like he did :-over 35
years ago.
"We found an old body and
people thought I was craz\ to
make it into. a race' car,"
Thompson said.
Despite the detractors, that is
the car he races today.
"The car \\ as practically built
from the ground Lp," he said.
He found the rebuild thera-
peutic and has enjoyed his
semi-retirement from SCCA
Pro racing since.
The frame used to make
Thompson's "new" 1969
Corvette was in decent shape,
but had been sitting in a field
for a number of years, and it


showed.
Other than the frame, there
was practically nothing useable
on the' car in the condition it
was found.
After some TLC and count-
less hours of work in the
garage, the car became the No.
71 Corvette that will grace the
Sebring International Raceway
today) in the Classic GT class of
the Four Hours of Sebring.
Jerrm man\ ha e a racing pedi-
gree. but as his son and co-driv-
er, Chris, will tell you he visited
Laguna Seca (in California"
while still in the \\omb."
"Instead of sports. I did car
stuff." the younger Thompson
said of his childhood. "ILworked
with cars and was crew chief
for my dad."
That got him started down
the road racing path, a path that
led to starting a business. in
1992 that eventually cam-
paigned a four-car pro team that
ran \with the IMSA sanctioning
body in 1997.
"I had to get a%%al from Dad
to reallN do an\ dri\ ing." Chris
Thompson said. "He is just too
good a dri er."
Recently, the younger
Thompson spent time at

Watkins Glen dri ing a Nissan

350z and also races up north in
ice races during the offseason,
driving various everyday
Hondas, Toyotas and Acuras.
The first time he ran -at
Sebring was in 1987 and he par-
ticipated in the 12 Hours that
year, as well.
Saturday's practice event of
seven laps was nothing but a
slight refresher for the two driv-
ers.
."The race will go fast," Jerry
Thompson .said of Saturday's
practice "Just seven laps then
poof, its over with."

DEVILS
Continued from 1D
ket were an epidemic the Deils had prob-
lems with all night.
The silver lining was Avon Park's 3-
point shooting. which kept them in the con-
test in the first half.
Down 27-13 in the second quarter, the
Devils caught fire for a 12-2 scoring run to
put them within seven. Four straight Avon
Park shots from behind the arc tickled the
twine, including back-to-back ones drained
by Devon Wilson. Ja\ier Medina and
Kaneef Caldwell also got in on the action
just before the halftime buzzer.
The third quarter was all Lakeland. as the
Dreadnaughts caine out of the locker room
to go on an 18-4 run. The Devils only man-
aged eight points in the third quarter and
couldn't recapture that 3-point swagger
again.
Although he didn't make much noise in
the scoring column. Avon Park's Mar in
Williams impressed those in attendance and
his coach by slapping down 16 rebounds
and mixing it up a little in the paint. The
Dreadnaughts had a decided size advan-
tage. but Williams fought for position and
boxed out effectively all night long.
"'.Williams) played really hard. He ga\e
a good effort and he's going to continue to
improve as a sophomore." said Znayer.
The Red Devils continue to search for an
offensive finisher as practically evern post
player has tried to take on the role.
Regardless of who contributes. Zwaner
feels the points will come along with the
victories as long as theN can improve on
defense.
"Offense ... that \%ill just come with
time." said Zwayer. "Right now I'm \\or-
ried about whether r defensi\el. can we
guard iand i can we stop them'""

Speck season


gets


off to a slow start


The black crappie is one of
the most popular game fish in
Florida. This small cousin of
the largemouth bass attracts
hundreds of fishermen from the
northern states to Florida's
many streams and lakes each
winter.
The black crappie is also
known as a speckled perch or,
more commonly in this area,
the speck. Florida has a daily
bag limit of 25 with no size
limit. The seemingly endless
supply and the ease with which
crappies are caught add to their
popularity. They average 8 to
10 inches in length, though
some grow much larger.
Most of the numerous lakes
in Highlands County have a
good population of specks.
They are beautiful fish with a
silvery-green color marked
with black blotches on their
sides. After checking with
some local fish camps and
anglers, I found that catches
have been very limited in the
past couple of weeks due to the
cool water temperatures. Ideal
water temperature for specks is

around 75 degrees. With a
warm-up, we should see the
crappie fishing pick up tremen-
dously and see anglers catching
their limits.
Lake Istokpoga is one of the
better crappie lakes in
Highlands County. Due to its
size, it harbors a tremendous
number of specks. When crap-
pies are turned on, the boat
ramps are very busy and the
lake's parking areas are over-
flowing.
Tom Champeau, biologist
with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation


Commission (FWC), says
Istokpoga's crappies run larger
than normal, averaging 10 and
12 inches in length. Locally,
our specks will weigh between
one-half to 1 pound. Florida's
all time record is 3.13 pounds
and was taken from Lake
Talquin, an 8,800-acre reser-
voir west of Tallahassee. The
world record is 4.8 pounds.
Spawning any time from late
'January until early May, the
female will deposit 10,000 to
150,000 eggs in a circular nest
near underwater vegetation.
They make nests in groups,
close together in 3-8 of water.
Males protect the nest and fry
that hatch. If only a few fry
survive, they will still maintain
their population.
Crappies are easily caught
during the pre-spawning peri-
ods due to their habit of con-
gregating in large schools.
Spawning takes place from
February until April. The fact
they build their nests in large
groups and in 3-8 feet of water
makes them much easier to
find.

A- for bait. the live
"Missouri NMinno\'s" sold in
bait shops are a favorite of
specks. They can also be taken
on grass shrimp, crickets and
sometimes plain old earth-
worms will entice them. Small
lead head jigs and spinnerbaits
will take the fish for those who
prefer artificial baits..
While the crappie is not
much of a fighter and their
endurance is limited, they do
have a great redeeming quality
- folks throughout the south
insist that, as table fare, there is


simply nothing finer.
One of the most traditional
southern cooking styles is deep
frying (mix a half cup of corn-
meal, half cup of pancake mix,
a half cup of flour and thee-
quaiters of a cup of milk
together with enough water to
make a stiff dip to roll the fil-
lets in and then deep fry them
until golden bro\n .
For today's:fast-paced


1Pr liferst le and somewhat
less fat, soak your fresh fillets
in milk or buttermilk, then
sprinkle with lemon juice, salt
and pepper, wrap them in a
paper towel and microwave for
3 to 4 minutes or until white
and flaky.
Mmmm, them southern folks
is right.
