SEBRING The possible
losses of broadcast stations
WINK and WFLA have caused
much concern locally.
To address these concerns
and explain why the channels
are slated to be dropped,
Comcast area vice president
Rod Dagenais appeared before
Sebring City Council Tuesday
night.
Every market in Florida has a
designated market area, which
is what the FCC uses to identify
television markets. Because
Highlands County is in the
Tampa/St. Petersburg DMA,
Tampa-area broadcast stations
must be carried locally.
WTSP Channel 10 is the
CBS affiliate designated for
Highlands County. But the sta-
tion was not able to provide an
over-the-air signal strong
enough :to reach 'the county.
Because of this, Comcast was
allowed to broadcast WINK
(Channel 11 out of Fort Myers)
instead, because it has a very
strong signal.
But now the signal from
WTSP, the Tampa CBS affili-
ate, can be received and FCC
mandates that it must be carried
in the entire Tampa DMA, of
which Highlands County is a
part. Dagenais said Comcast
"doesn't have the luxury" to
carry duplicate channels from
different markets such as
WINK and WFLA, the Orlando
ABC affiliate, which is why
they're slated to be dropped.
Dagenais said the changes
were not made hastily. "It's dif-
ficult to make any channel
changes," he said. "There's a
viewing audience for every
channel. If it's a local broad-
caster, they get used to the local
x\earherman, the local anchor-
man. It's difficult to change
that."
Some local residents were
concerned about losing WFLA
because of "Jeopardy!" and
"Wheel of, Fortune," both of
which are syndicated there.
However, the soon-to-be-added
Channel 10 out of Tampa
broadcasts both programs.
"None of our customers will
lose those popular programs,"
Dagenais said.
The loss of WINK was of


cian centered to patient/con-
sumer centered, relying more
on evidence-based medicine
than any one doctor's training
and experience.
iConnect cost FHHD more
than $5 million, and implemen-
tation will take about three to
five years. The first phase was
installed in 18 months.
"I had really great handwrit-
ing until I went to medical
school," Catalano said, citing
one of several benefits of elec-
tronic charts no more illegi-
ble doctor's notes.
The system has other features
that should that increase how
fast doctors treat, while
decreasing potentials for error.
"At a glance, we can tell
where we are in a patient's
care," said Jerilyn Stamps,
emergency department director,
explaining that iConnect has a


"grease board" that displays
patient status via a variety of
colors and icons.
Lab, radiological and reports
from other departments are
entered directly into the data-
base, eliminating the down time
that results waiting for their
delivery.
Depending on a patient's care
requirements, various triggers
prompt nurses and other staff to
perform specific tasks, or log
them in if already done.
'Things are not forgotten,"
Andrea Stidham, registered
nurse, said.
The computers on wheels act
as rolling charts, wirelessly
connected to the mainframe and
printers.
But, the printers aren't
mobile and each computer
prints to a specific printer,
which means the COW\s must

remain in their departments, or
"pastures" as iConnect project
manager Sandi Bemardo likes
to call them.
The system allows the doc-
tors to search two medical data-
bases, which Catalano
described as the Google of
health care, while they review a
patient's chart.
"Some physicians ha\e com-
plained that this is cookbook
medicine," Catalano' said,
explaining that the databases
provide access, to up-to-date,
peer-reviewed journals. "It's
textbook medicine."
Follow-up care can occur
anywhere, said Rira Showrfetr
who provided the "office staff'
perspective.
Doctors in the Adventist
Health System, including refer-
ral specialists, can remotely
access iConnect to review and


sign off on a patient's care.
When logging on, they have
to enter three passwords to pass
through the several-layers thick
security, Showfety said.
Though no system can be
deemed 100 percent safe,
FHHD president and chief
executive officer John Harding
said the chances of a breach are
"very, very slim."
Electronic record keeping is
supposed to be implemented
nationwide by 2010, with total
interconnectivity the federal
government's ultimate goal.
Medical record cards, which
have all of a patient's medical
history, are on the horizon too.
"We learn every day that
there are things this system can
do that we didn't knoww"
Harding said.
These COWs likely won't be
coming home.

Local Military Officers host annual holiday party, installation of new officers


Special to the News-Sun
Continuing the local Military
Officers Association Chapter's
tradition, the group will hold its
annual holiday party with the
installation of the recently
elected officers at the Sebring
Sun 'N Lake Golf and Country
Club's Candlelight Restaurant
on Saturday, Dec. 16.
The festivities will com-
mence at 2 p.m. with the
Tommy Mitchell Duo playing
for the group's listening pleas-
ure and dancing.
Following the hour of enter-
tainment the newly elected offi-
cers will be installed by the
Florida MOAA Council presi-
dent, retired Navy Captain


Keep that

holiday cheer
Special to the News-Sun
Christmas trees are among
the most popular decorations of
yuletide, but they also can be
deadly. In 2000-2004 on aver-
age, one out of every 22
Christmas tree fires in homes
resulted in a death, according to
the National. Fire Protection
Association.
To help families avoid such
tragedies this holiday season,
Underwriters Laboratories Inc.
and the NFPA are partnering to
remind people that a little com-
mon sense and precaution can
help create a safer holiday sea-
son.
NFPA statistics show that, on
average, live and artificial
Christmas trees are the ignition
sources of 300 reported U.S.
home structure fires each year
resulting in 14 fatalities, 21
injuries and $16.8 million in
property damage.
"The last thing you want
during the holidays is a blazing
Christmas tree," Lorraine Carli,
NFPA's assistant vice president
of communications, said. "By
following simple safety meas-
ures like making sure your tree
is well watered, and keeping
open flames, such as burning
candles, away from the tree
will help keep you and your
home sale." -* ..
In addition. 44 percent of
Christmas tree fires are caused
by an electrical problem or
malfunction. Decorators should
make sure that any electrical
cords they are use are in good
working order.
"Damaged or misused elec-
tric light strings and extension
cords, if left unchecked before
you put them up, can deliver
shocks and potentially cause
home fires," John
Drengenberg, consumer affairs
manager for UL, said. "If they
are damaged or have frayed
wires, you should buy new
ones. They are relatively cheap
and incredibly good insurance
for keeping your holiday sea-
son safe."
UL reminds consumers to
inspect light strings for cracked
sockets and frayed, bare or
loose wires. Look for the holo-
graphic UL Mark on light
strings and electrical decora-
tions. The UL Mark means that
UL engineers have tested sam-
ples of the product for safety
hazards. The not-for-profit
safety testing organization also
certifies lights for indoor or
outdoor use. Lights intended
for indoor-only use have green
holographic UL Marks. Light
strings intended for indoor and
outdoor use have red holo-
graphic UL Marks.
House fires and electrical
shocks aren't the only prevent-
able accidents that injure holi-
day revelers and damage or
destroy property. Each year
12,500 people are treated in
emergency rooms for injuries
related to holiday decoration
mishaps, according to the
Consumer Products Safety
Commission (CPSC).
Drengenberg added, "We
also hear about people falling
off ladders while decorating,
and we see a substantial num-
ber of house fires started by
candles this time of year."
"The most common causes

It was explained that the hol-

officers is the only "dress up"
function of the year and officers

spouses and ladies dressed
accordingly.

of candle fires are candles
burning too close to com-
bustible materials, such as mat-
tresses or bedding, furniture,
curtains or walls, or candles left
unattended," Drengenberg said.
"Candles should be kept away
from combustible materials and
away from spots where they
could be knocked over by peo-
ple or pets."

BABY

needed nutrients.
According to the U.S.
National Library of Medicine,
TPN provides patients with a
combination of sugar and car-
bohydrates for energy, proteins
for muscle strength, lipids for
needed fats, electrolytes for
proper organ functioning and to
prevent dehydration and trace
elements of zinc, copper, man-
ganese and chromium.
Doctors have told the
Hosteens that while the TPN
provides life-sustaining nutri-
tion, it's also responsible for
damaging Malikiah's body.
Malikiah is waiting for a
liver transplant. Others organs
are anticipated.
The National Library of
Medicine suggests that a small
bowel transplant resulting in
"intestinal autonomy" would
help.
In lieu of normal bowel
movements, Malikiah has
mucus discharges.
"You have to be more obser-
vant," Shauna Hosteen said
while holding her youngest of
three boys. "We have to be
aware of any changes he might
be going through."
He was born April 3 without
any apparent complications.
But, four days later, the symp-
toms set in.
"One night he started gasp-
ing for air," she said.
Though Shauna is a stay-at-
home mom, trying to care for
healthy 5-. and- 3-year-olds
while tending to an ailing infant
was overwhelming for the
Navajo couple who moved
from Arizona to Sebring a year
ago.
"The baby used to cry all the
time and she used to sit there:
crying with him," Dell.Hosteen
said. "It was the first time I ever
felt helpless."
Malikiah has grown up with
the TPN drip attached to a tube


PARK
Continued from 1A
a-natiorngrateful-to our-veter--
ans.-
With her husband's inclusion
at the park and buildings bear-
ing his name, 'Birgit Smith said
he is a part of history.
"For years to come, they will
hear his story," Smith said after
the ceremony.
She met Paul Smith in
Bamberg, Germany, during
Desert Storm.
He had 14 years in the Army
when he died. Other missions in
which he participated included
Kosovo and Bosnia.
"I think Paul was married


that is hard-wired to a blood
vessel in his chest. It's a perma-
nent fixture designed to stand
up to the rigors of infanthood.
Nonetheless, he has managed
to break the connection, requir-
ing an emergency trip to All
Children's .Hospital in St.
Petersburg.
Dell Hosteen said the baby
requires the attention of the spe-
cialists there, except for fevers,
which can be diagnosed locally.
The trips are expensive
between fluctuating gas prices
and lost time from work.
Dell Hosteen is the service
manager for Carlini's, an auto-
motive repair shop. Owner Tom
Carlini has been patient and
understanding with the Hosteen
family's situation.
"I've had to leave a lot from
work," he said. "My son comes
before work, but it goes the
other way around too. I try to
not show my emotions at work
but, sometimes, my boss would
pull me aside and say he under-
stands I got things on my
mind."
Insurance helps to a point,
Dell Hosteen said, explaining
that some claims are rejected,
such as ambulance trips to St.
Petersburg when the insurance
company doesn't see them as
emergencies. Malikiah qualifies
for Social Security insurance.
Malikiah, his brothers Josiah,
5, and Mathias, 3, and their
mother missed a recent fund-
raiser for them hosted by 2006
Miss Highlands County Katlyn
Hammortree because an emer-
gency trip to All Children's
Hospital resulted in a multi-day
stay.
Hammortree raised more
than $2,500 for the family, Dell
Hosteen said.
Children were especially
generous.
"A group of teenagers
dropped off $200 and didn't
want any hot dogs," Dell
Hosteen said of the fund-raiser.
"Lots of young kids came in
and made, donations. We're
thankful for people taking the


first to the Army," Birgit Smith
said, jokingly referring to her-
self as his second wife.
His ambitions included a
militar)'--career, family and
owning a Harley -Davidson
motorcycle.
"Paul fulfilled his, life
dreams," she said.


I0


time out to help us."
But, with each passing day
they're forced to think about the
unthinkable.
Their older sons are aware
that Malikiah is sick but don't
realize that he may die. They're
too young to understand, the
Hosteens said.
They're putting off that con-
versation with their boys.
Shauna Hosteen tries to not
think about it at all.
"It's a day-to-day thing for
us," Dell Hosteen said. The
future weighs heavily on his
mind, but due to a lack of dis-
cussion the couple doesn't have
a plan for what they hope isn't
inevitable. "It's a hard topic to
discuss. I know that at some
time we might have to make a
decision. We'll be pulled both
ways."
The Hosteens aren't asking
for handouts. But, if somebody
is in the position to help, they
said cash donations would help
cover the expenses incurred
traveling to St. Petersburg and
from medical issues not cov-
ered by Dell Hosteen's insur-
ance.
They're trying to establish an
account, but their hectic sched-
ule he works and she juggles
three boys often doesn't
afford them the time to get to a
bank.
When the account is created,
the News-Sun will publish it.,
Until then, they can be reached
at 382-3411 or 471-1770.
"We were told that babies
with this disease don't last more
than a year," Dell Hosteen said.
"We're getting close to that."
The Hosteens rushed
Malikiah to All Children's on
Monday, two days after the
News-Sun interview.
"All of a sudden he had a
fever of 101 and started acting
like he was choking, like he
was going to throw up," Dell
Hosteen said Tuesday afternoon
after returning from St.
Petersburg with his.wife.
Malikiah was kept at the hos-.
pital, but they had to return so
Shauna Hosteen could pack
several days clothes for her and
the two boys.
During extended stays, they
stay at the Ronald McDonald
House.
"We're supposed to find -out

DELEGATION
Continued from 1A
decrease in funding.
Libraries receiving state aid
increased from 69 to 85.
The report projected the
Highlands County Library
System would lose $20,000
during the fiscal year that ended
Oct. 1.
"This is a matter of statewide
significance since many citi-
zens throughout the state rely
on this valuable resource," the
commission statement said.
Twice in their legislative
package, the commissioners
endorse state funding for coun-
ty hurricane shelters.
Designated a "host county"
for coastal hurricane evacua-
tions, the board said Highlands
lacks sheltering resources.
The commission will voice
its support for a Highlands
County Fair Board civic center
(for which the fair board is
seeking a $2 million grant) and
will request about $4 million to
make Lake Placid High School
wind compliant.
The discussion arose about
whether supporting the Fair
Board would obligate county
funds.
County Administrator Carl
Cool said the endorsement
wouldn't. But, the commission-
ers might be asked later to
match the grant with $200,000.
Commissioners can decide
then if they want to back their
endorsement with taxpayer
money.
"I don't think that's a bad
deal," Cool said of the 10-to-1
investment.
Jack Richie, chairman of the
Highlands County
Homeowners Association, .
called Cool's explanations
"double talk" before he took the
podium to protest.
Richie and another regular
attendee of the commission
meetings voiced their concern.
"I'm positively for a civic
center," Richie said. "But, I'm
confused how we can back
something up but not support it,
or support it and not back it
up."
Chairman C. Guy Maxcy
reiterated that the board was not
appropriating money for the'
civic center by supporting it.


"At this time this board is not
committing any money."
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart weighed in, saying it
was important the board be
fully aware of what they are
endorsing.
Stewart, noting that Lake
Placid is expected to petition
for a new hurricane shelter, had
a question about the LPHS
retrofit.
"Why are we, instead of the
school board, applying for the
retrofit?" she asked.
Explaining that he's been
working with the school board,
Cool said the county can
request the grant but can't mod-
ify the school building without
the school board's approval,
which might require an inter-


local agreement.
The commission will also
ask the delegation to maintain
funding for health departments
and to support affordable/work-
force housing.
"We have been feeling the
pinch here in Highlands County
because of the challenge of
available contractors and the
price of materials," they said in
their package. "You will
encounter several bills that will
attempt to either move money
out of affordable housing or
make new housing out of the
reach of the.state's workforce.
... Please support efforts td
increase state funding ... and to-
expand opportunities for local'
government to deal creatively.
with this growing crisis."

Lake Placid Middle School science students turn a Lake Country Elemenlar) classroom into a laboratory featuring science work centers.


Students teach science lessons to first-graders


By RIC LIUENBERG
,?@'t'it, (ii t,:rr,.s[;..,ij. nl
L-KE PLACID
A few\ days before
Thanksgiting, classmates in
Tracy Robinson's Lake Placid
Middle School eighth grade
advanced science class climbed
aboard a bus that carried them
to Lake Counrrn ElementarN
School.
There theN transformed
Alana Dewe. 's first grade
classroom into a science labo-
ratory featuring several stations
demonstrating \anrous science
projects.
During a conversation last
summer. Robinson and Dewe\
agreed to find a vwa for
Robinson's middle school stu-
dents to bring advanced sci-
ence to Dewe\'s elementary
classroom.
"After talking with my stu-
dents the students in m\


advanced science class we
decided to work with several
topics to create tun science
%work centers that teachers
could use throughout the year."
Robinson said.
Choosing \what Robinson
termed "appropriate topics."
her students spent hours put-
ting the work centers together
for the Nov. 13 trip and what
turned out to be an exciting
da\.
When the da\ \\as o er.
Robinson's student- practiced
language arts bN writing short
essays about their experience.
Reflecting on her experi-
ence. Alexis Johnson discov'-
ered a possible career,
"Yesterday \ hen I went to
LCE. I had a blast. I %\as able
to teach younger kids ne\w
things. I ha\e always (consid-
ered this option, but yesterday
showed me ho\w (teaching)


'They 'were all more intellectual

than I thought ...'
KE-VIN SMIT, eight-grade science student


\would be. I don't think I would
enjoy being a middle school
teacher, but I would like to
teach elementary school chil-
dren because I love being
around little kids." Johnson
said. -
Meesha Mullings found "the
kids were really smart, much
smarter than I had thought."
Mulling \~as one of a num-
ber of her classmates
impressed \with the attention
first-graders gave to the les-
sons.
Joining her assessment.
Kevin Smit wrote. "They were
all more intellectual than I


thought and knew about the
body, planets, and other sci-
ences that were on our boards.
Smit predicted. "The.'re
probably going to be in accel-
erated classes someday."
S"It surprised -me that they
\ere so interested and partici-
pated as much as they did."
Kyle LeBlanc \%rote.
NMarysa Hoak enjoyed the
day. She hoped "we can do
something similar again this
s ear."
"'Making the projects was
m. favorite part. because I
love making things and being
creative." Haley Sterling


w rote.
Rachel Cope noticed "how
\well the\ behaved and how
into everything they were."
She came awa3\ "w\%h a new\
respect for teachers."
Nick Peragine came a\ a.
w ith a different view point.
"Reall.. I'd never be a teacher.
It gets kind of annoying saying
things o\er and over again."
"We had to sa. the same
thing four times." Dylan
Weber-Callahan echoed.
Devon Whidden added. "I
don't plan on becoming a
teacher." although he thought it
\\as "fun to teach something
new\ to the first-graders."
And Matthew Pado\ano
experienced "Deja vu going
back to a place I haven't been
to in almost three years.
Everything \\as the same it
was scars."

Many help on

Cultural Street
Editor:
Well, it's almost a month
since the Highlands Art'
Festival on Nov. 11 took place
in downtown Sebring and I
would like to thank the.vendors
and performers who participat-
ed in Cultural'Street and helped
make it a success.
Henscratch Farms provided
a happy and friendly booth
with lots of good tasting. Our
artist demonstrators added their
touch to the festivities. The
Primal Connection Drum'
Ensemble did their usual fine
job with several drum selec-
tions. The Scottish American
Society of Highlands County
provided more fun and enter-
tainment with their bagpipes
and drums. Those who pre-
ferred folk and old-time music
got to hear the strains of the
Back Porch Revival and
Friends.
There was Cowboy Poet


.Mike Barkley and the crowd
was enamored with the young-
sters who performed East
Indian traditional dances.
Audience members joined in
w ith the country line dancers
for a fun time of line dancing
and the Caladium Counrrv
Cloggers had as much fun as
the ,crowd in performing.
Dance Unlimited featured a
soloist from the dance studio
and the audience \was aw\ed bN
the style and grace of the ball-
room dancers.

If you didn't attend the festi-
val, you missed out on a great
day of fun and entertainment.
All of the performers are
expected to be back next year,
so don't miss it.
Goldie Garnich
Sebring

The writer was co-chair of
Highlands Art, Festival's
Cultural Street along with
RoseMarie Tippins, whose
name joined that of Gloria
Coffey on this letter.

Holidays
Could it be the beautiful
Christmas music that filters
through the airwaves wherever
you go, or the beautiful lights
that flicker in the night. Maybe
it's the smell of gingerbread or
pumpkin pie.
Whatever the reason, every-
one yearns to be with that spe-
cial someone, especially during
the holiday season. But what if
that someone you yearn for is
someone else's husband?
Be advised that he will have
limited time to spend with you.
'He will be shopping for his wife
and family, attending special
events, dining out and visiting.
Are you willing to settle for the
holiday crumbs?
In case you haven't realized
it, despite his numerous prom-
ises to leave his wife, he isn't
leaving his wife for you. You
are also an accessory to rob-
bery. How%? He is not fulfilling
his financial obligation. He is
robbing his children of child


Americans have

same rights
Editor:
This letter is in response to
Billie E. Jewett's letter on Dec.
3, written about illegal immi-
gration. Several times during
the letter it is stated that "There
are no jobs Americans will not -
do." I would like to ask Billie
E. Jewett what type of work
they do.
I have been looking into this
subject since it has become a
hot topic lately and this is what
I have found out.
There are jobs that
Americans do not want to do. I
have seen the way our fresh
- fruit and vegetables are har-
vested. People work hard on
their knees or bend over and
climb on ladders so that the
American people can enjoy
fresh fruits and vegetables.
How many local Americans
are out there doing these same
jobs? If the Americans wanted
the job, the same opportunity is
open for them.
The current guest worker
program for agriculture (H2-A)
requires that employers pay
their employees an adverse
effect wage rate of $8.56 per
hour (for Highlands County).
\Vhat I now ask iS why that
amount is considered "cheap
slave labor"? Ho\\ much are
employees making, at the local
fast food restaurant. grocery
stores and hospitals?
Considering that Florida's
minimum wage is $6.40 per
hour, I find $8.56 to be higher
than slave labor.
Also on this program, hous-
ing is required for those that
cannot reasonably. return to
their place of residence the
same day. This housing is to be
free of charge, employer paid!
housing.
Finally, transportation is pro-
vided to those living in
employer housing who do not
have transportation to a local
supermarket or to work.
Billie E. Jewett states that "a
living wage is only a very small
part of the cost for any industry
including farming". After look-
ing at the cost of wages, hous-
ing, and transportation that has
to be included, I would say that
it is more than a very small part
of cost for any business. .
To say these working people
are criminals stealing the jobs
of the Americans, I say let the
Americans try the jobs and see
how long they will last.
Have you, Billie E. Jewett,
ever tried harvesting your fresh
fruit or vegetables in the fields
or orange groves, or do you not
enjoy fresh fruit and vegeta-
bles? If the Americans are not
there to do the work or do not
want to harvest crops the only
option is a guest worker pro-
gram or the Americans will
have to depend on another
country for their fresh fruit and
vegetables just like we do our
oil.

County Friends

not in wrong
Editor:
As president of the Friends
of the Avon Park Library, I am
writing this letter to clarify cer-
tain insinuations that have been
made by the audit division of
the Highlands County Clerk's
Office.
The issue is how funds are
spent from our Friends of the
Library of A% on Park organiza-
tion. The implication in the
press, as I understand it, is that
our Used Book Store is used
for little more than a "money
laundering" operation to pro-
vide a non-traceable fund for
the local library.
That is not true. We have
records of every penny that-we
have received and dispensed
for the last seven years at least.
They include a $25,000 dona-
tion to the Highlands County
Commission to be used in the
building fund for the addition
and restoration of the Avon
Park Library. This money was
made from book sales; promo-
tional events and membership
dues. We'have also purchased a
multi-media projector given to
the local library to be used for
our film series.
For most of these years, we
have been saving for the afore-
mentioned building donation.
Also, to clarify the record,
any new book that has been
donated by an individual and is
now on our shelf, has first been
offered to our local library. The
only books that we receive
from the library are discarded
books from the library's
"weeding" operation, which
exclusively includes non-fic-
tion books that are out-of-date
and fiction books that no longer
circulate.
We are proud of the relation-
ship and cooperation we have
with our library and any asser-
tions that that relationship is
not done with the utmost con-
sideration for our community's
welfare is false.
Knowing the sacrifice volun-
teers make in order to achieve
this service to the libraries'of
our counties, it is impossible
for me to believe that the
Friends of the Sebring Library


and Friends of the Lake Placid
Library are doing anything ille-
gal or morally wrong.

Not getting a

real choice
Editor:
I am puzzled about some of
the laws we have. For instance,
the law gives Mexican people
such a bad time. Some leave on
their own. Some were told to
leave because they were illegal.
Now most of these people
work on dairy farms or picked
fruit, which the average
American person won't do. So
now we have a storage of fruit
pickers.
Now a Cuban can put his
feet on U.S. soil and we let
them stay and what do they do
for our country? Grow marijua-
na by the tons (see the News-
Sun, Nov. 10-11); they get
busted and land in jail and we,
the average American Joe pays
taxes to feed these people. Now
where's the justice in all this?
Also for Plan D some of us
had an RX card that saved us
60 percent or more on our pre-
scription drugs. Now if we did-
n't take one or two different
kinds of drugs, this was OK,
but no. Our government says
take Plan D or do without drug
coverage and they call this
freedom.
Anyway, we pay $13.50
come January for Medicare. I
think Plan D should be includ-
ed. We are not given a choice.
Shame on our government.

People don't

really have say

Editor:
A follow-up to the letter I
wrote pertaining to the 'Up to
85 Percent Tax on Social
Security."
A nice lady called me and
explained to me about the tax
on Social Security and the
excuse our government uses to
justify this double taxation.
Thank you Evelyn Gooding.
Now about "impact fees." I


'Sunshine is a weather report. A flood is news.'
REUVEN FRANK, broadcast news executive, c. 1965


was taught in school that
America had a democratic form
of government "A
Go\ ernment of The People, For
The People and By The
People."
So I ask again, did the people
get to vote on the impact fees?
It seems that the more money
our government gets from
taxes, the. more scams they
dream up to blow the taxpay-
ers' money on.
They act like a kid in a candy
store. They can't save a penny.
A democratic form of govern-
ment is where the people have
a say as to what the govern-
ment does.
Did the people have any say
about impact fees. Us seniors
on a fixed income are being
taxed to death.
Is this the beginning of a
socialistic government, where
the citizens are being taxed off
their land? Like Communist
Russia, or George Orwell's
novel, "Big Brother 1984."

Something to

think about

Editor:
If you've never watched
John Hagee at 6 p.m., on
Saturday evening, on Channel
22, you have missed a blessing.
He is very knowledgeable, well
versed on the Bible and world
conditions.
Recently, instead of the usual
sermon, he had an Arabic
speaker, Brigette Gabriel, who
is also a world news journalist.
She was originally from
Lebanon until the Muslims
took over the country. She had
married an American and
become an American citizen.
She told about Lebanon
being a Christian nation and lit-
tle by little the Muslims took
over. They soon overrun the
population having as many as
four wives and numerous num-
bers of children. She told about
one man having 57, how they
have guards at check points on
the roads going out. You were
required to present your identi-
fication card with your religion
and if you were a Christian,
they just killed the whole fami-
ly.
She speaks at colleges and
different places to try to help
people to see the same thing
happening here. She told about
speaking in a university in
Tennessee and the Muslims

surrounded the university in
protest. The police had to be
called out to keep the peace and
make it possible for her to
speak.
She told about how they
were making a huge profit from
oil here and sending it back,
which was in large sums being
donated to our colleges in
exchange for their hiring their
professors who are brainwash-
ing our young people.
We work and sacrifice to
send them to school and many
come with altogether different
values and morals. They favor
those who they can influence
and make it very difficult for
the others. Young people are
very impressionable and with
both parents, in many cases,
working, many are not taught
the fundamentals of the
Christian faith, which is alto-
gether different from the
Muslim faith. I'm sure, they
think, because he is a professor,
that he's leading them down the
right path. When you think
about this, you can see the
damage that will result.
I recently received informa-
tion about a school in
California that was requiring
the students to dress in Muslim
attire, learn the Muslim prayer
and, in fact, teaching them that
Allah is God. These people are
different. They are taught to
hate from infancy. When they
get control, they will show
what they really are. Their goal
is to run you out, convert or kill
you. This is an example of the
Scripture that speaks of wolves
in sheep's clothing. They
appear to be one thing, but real-
ly are something else.
Mrs. Gabriel tells us that
Hezballah has 11 terrorist cells
in America. Amass already has
terrorist cells in 40 of our
states. Their plans are to hit the
Rotary, Lions, Masons and all
these organizations that work
to make life better for many.
You don't see them, but they
are here and when they get
properly situated, they will
strike. She tells us that this is
the. wway they succeeded in
SLebanon. They are here to
carry-out Muslim acts not to
become Americans. They have
no plans to integrate into the


American way of life and if
they should ever take over,
freedom of religion will no
longer be an option. It will be
Muslim or else. They call us
pigs and apes and we cannot
fathom the hate they have for
us. Their religion is built on
hate ours on love. They have
10 of our major cities targeted.
Mrs. Gabriel has published a
book, "Because They Hate,"
which is more detailed. May
God have mercy on us and not
use this as punishment for the
evils we have allowed in this
country. I pray this will be
taken seriously and each of us
will do our best to curb this
trend.
What is easiest is not always
best for tomorrow. Our country
will never be what it was meant
to be by human effort alone.
We most assuredly, need the
help of our Lord and Savior
Jesus Christ. If we don't live
for Him, we can't expect His
blessings.

The biggest

friend of all
Editor:
As I sit here this time of year,
there is no family for my Down
Syndrome son or I. Everyone
we know has family coming for
Christmas. They're rushing
around buying gifts, going to
different places to see their
loved ones. I wish we had
someone to visit.
.Where I live no one cares;
they have their own life.
But all I have to do is look
toward Heaven. There is the
biggest friend of all.
I lost my husband Dec. 19,
1982, by a drunk driver. My
mate is gone plus three children
in my heart; it hurts. I know
they're all looking down with
my parents.
I think of all the lonely peo-
ple in the same place we are
alone. If we sit quietly we may
feel the presence of our loved
ones. You may hear a noise
you've never heard before or
something may fall that has
been in its place for years or a
light wind around you. When
you go to bed you may feel a
light brush at the foot of your
bed, even a light voice you
can't explain.


The Lord sends guardian
angels to be around us so we
are not alone. He is ever pres-
ent in our lives. We must give
Him credit; we are not forsaken
as we may feel.
Look around, the sadness in
our world is overwhelming.
The war and the loneliness of
our loved ones away from us
overseas [leaves us] wishing
they were here. Their families
[are] here with a lonely heart. I
pray for everyone who is alone
with no one left to love.
Wait a minute. There is that
friend I told you about the
truest, most honest friend of all.
If you believe in Him, He hears
your prayers and thoughts. He
heals your broken heart, dries
your eyes with his soft, tender
hands. If you just give Him a
chance to be your friend, He
will never leave you alone. Just
talk to Him. Think of all the
happy memories you've had
along the way. Talk out loud to
Him, He's there with you.
I hope that those who are
down and out will look to Him
for comfort. I know it seems
you are talking into the wind
but you are not. He hears you,
just ask Him to come into your
heart. He will right away. You
will feel a sense of peace come
over you. I only ask so that you
will know you aren't alone any-
more. Smile, give thanks for all
the beautiful times with your
loved ones and friends.
Now you have a new one,
the biggest friend of all..God
bless you and may Wou find this
inner peace with Him and just
smile at this time of )ear and
know the angels are around
you. The Lord is always here
with us. May you have a
blessed and happy holiday.
Don't ever give up on life as.
it's really special to love others.
We lo\e you and pray for
you to be loved and given a joy
in life. Everyone is special to
our Heavenly Father. He gave
us life to be happy. May you
have a very special holiday.
If I could wipe all the tears
away, I would. That biggest
friend of all can and will. God.
bless each and everyone of you..
Happy holidays.
Patricia (and son Brian)

Name that

holiday tune
Many of our favorite holi-
day songs have uniquestories
attached to them that are little
known bits of history or folk-
lore.
Most of us know the story
of the holiday favorite "Silent
Night:" The local church
mouse chewed through the
bellows of the church organ,
so the choirmaster wrote a
song that could be accompa-
nied by a guitar; lyrics by
Father Josef Mohr and
melody by Franz X. Gruber
in 1818. A copy in Mohr's
handwriting was discovered
in 1995. See
http://en. wikipedia. org/wiki/S
ilent i,'hlii for details.
Do you know the first
carol that was broadcast from
space and when that hap-
pened? Wally Shurra and Tom
Stafford smuggled a harmon-
ica and sleighbells aboard
Gemini 6. The men ga' e the
following report to NMission
Control- "'\e ha\e an object.
looks like a satellite going
from north to south. probably\
in pohl orbit ... I see a com-
mand module and etiht
smaller modules in front. The
pilot of the command module
is wearing a red sui..." The
men then broadcast a rendi-
tion of "Jingle Bells" on Dec.

bright shining on the cold winter night. Candle,

dle reminds us the light of hope of the prophets.

Joseph and Mary found light and warmth in the
stable. God, the Father of Light, bless your peo-
ple in this Advent season. Create in our hearts the
change that will enable us to reflect your love.

A soft breeze rustled the trees and
carried the tantalizing aroma of Gator
tail, venison, Gator ribs, Elk, roasted
corn, and the rest of the menu through
the air at the 3rd annual Wild Game
Dinner of the Lake Placid Noon Rotary
Club, which was at Parker Island this
past Saturday night. Around 800 people
waded through each other's presence,
their laughter and conversations carry-
ing on through the evening, as they
enjoyed the extremely tasty menu of
wild game meats. Many wandered
from tent to delicious tent, while others
found their way toward the hay bales to
enjoy the band playing country music.

preparing to go back on stage to get the live auc-

thing lined up for the auction and were ready to
get going. I had come to the conclusion that it
would be relatively easy to spot them, as we all
had on gray shirts, and of course I knew their

sheer confusion that wave after wave
of human faces can create. In the blur
and the crush of the masses, somehow
they slipped right by me, unnoticed.
Luckily, Paul decided to go to the front
Sof the stage and wait for me, and even-
tually we caught up. Because around
800 people were their Saturday night, I

stop, get out of their cars and
walk around her .ard to look at
the decorations. "'People just
don't do that an\ more." she
said. "But. I can go out there


after a stressful day and walk
around and it totally changes
my mood. It's so relaxing."
She doesn't know exactly
how man, lights fill her yard.
She said she doesn't like dark
spots so w hen she sees one.
she pulls out another string of
lights and away she goes.
The $150 increase in her
power bill also doesn't damper
her spirits.
"It's calming and peaceful
\work." she said. adding that
it's worth the mones it takes to
power the decorations.

"That weekend. Dad and I
spent a lot of time together ...
more than usual. He told me
how proud he \ as of me and
how much he depended on me.
Putting the lights out is a lot of
'work for some people. I guess
this is what he meant. It makes
me feel closer to him." she
said, \ ith a hope that he is
looking dow n on her \ ith a

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
Dec. 9, 2001: The third
time was the charm for the
Central team in the South-
Central Florida Football All-
Star Classic. Despite some
costly early penalties, the
host team held on lor its
first win in the three-year
history of the game with a
21-14 decision at
Firemen's Field. With the
score tied 14-14 in the
fourth quarter, Lake
Placid's Matwain Bryant
returned a punt 22 yards to
the South 20 and then
added runs of 11 and 2
yards before scoring from
the 2 with 8:41 left in the
game for the 21-14 lead
that would stand the rest
of the Way.

Trivia Time

Of the 122 professional
teams in the big four
sports (baseball, basket-
ball, football, and
hockey), only eight
teams have mascot
names that don't end in the
letter s. Can you name
them?

Michael W'ilkes set a new school record in the butterfly for Lake Placid this season.


Lake Placid's

Wilkes named

top swimmer
By MARCUS WILKINS
Sports n tr
The late autumn chill has
transformed swimming pools
across Highlands Count) into
chlorinated vats of ice-w\ater
and not many people are think-
ing of the past swimming sea-
son. but it was a memorable one
for the local teams nonetheless.
For the boys of the Avon
Park. Lake Placid and Sebring
swim teams, it was a season of
expectations met and exceeded
- and the coaches of all three
teams were unanimous in
declaring their pride.
Once again, the Rolls-Royce
of swimming programs in the
county was Lake Placid, which
had another spectacular season
led by All-County Boys
S\ immer of the Year Michael
Wilkes.
Wilkes broke the school
record for the 100-yard butter-
fl., formerly held by Lake
Placid coach Cindy Rivers' son
and current assistant coach Sid
Rivers. Fittingly, Sid %%as the
first one to pull Wilkes out of
the water and congratulate him
having \worked \with the swim-
mer all year.
"I guess I did my job." said
Sid Rivers after the record-
breaking time.
"He just really turned it on at
the end of the season." said
Lake Placid coach Cind'
Rivers. "I think he e\en sur-
prised himself."
The other standouts on the
Green Dragon boys team were
Derek Hendrie and David
Moore. "can-do" team mem-
bers \who contributed in many
areas.


SCOTT DRESSEL'New s-Sun
Jonathan Simadl had another standout .ear for Avon Park.


"David and Derek \were just
steady throughout the season."
said Rivers. "They basically
sw am \whatever we asked them
to swim and did a good job
\ hen it counted. The boys kind
of walked away \with a lot (of
meets) this year and that's what
the, did in districts, too."
Public high school sw im pro-
grams in the county sometimes
find themselves at a disadvan-
tage when competing on the
state level. Private schools with
superior funding and facilities
are capable of practicing all-
year round, but Rivers and the
other coaches in Highlands
County are proud to have multi-
talented. multi-sport athletes
who gi\e it their all.
"Our kids, most of them are
two- and three-sport athletes,
and it can be hard to compete
some times. It's a little disheart-
ening." said Rivers. "But I


don't know that I want kids that
only swim. You want a well-
rounded athlete. We just go and
compete and do our best "
For Avon Park, the conversa-
tion begins alphabetically with
Steven Acevedo. w ho advanced
to state as a diver \where he
placed 19th out of 24 divers.
"He has such a positive atti-
tude, w which helped his di ing."
said Avon Park coach Marsha
May. "He would come to prac-
tice with a good attitude and
\when he tried something, more
than likely he \would pull the
dive off."
Another top performer, for
the Wet Devils \was Jonathan
Simandl. w\ho competed in the
county, district and regional
meets and boasted a best 200-
yard individual medley time of
2-:41.49.

Lake


Placid


hangs


on to


beat


OHS
By JEFF CANTWELL
N'uws.St- Corrrspondent
LAKE PLACID --
Bradle. Williams hit 6 of 8
free throws during the final
minute to help Lake Placid
beat Okeechobee 60-52
Thursday night in Green
Dragon Gym.
The pesky Brahmans
refused to fold, but got no
closer than a point in the
final period. The Green
Dragons (l-3 overall) were
clinging to a 51-49 lead
when Okeechobee center
Timmy Williams was called
for a foul on Bradley
Williams. Okeechobee's
Williams \\as also called for
a technical foul for arguing
the call and Lake Placid 's
Williams hit 3 of 4 from the
charity stripe with :57 left in
the game.
Lake Placid stole the ball
on the ensuing possession
and Williams, who led all
scorers with 21 points, hit
the second of two free
throws to open up a 55-49
lead with 51 seconds left.
Okeechobee t2-4) struggled
bringing the ball up the floor
and the home team nailed
down the win from the free-
throw line. Joshua Hickey
swished two free throws
with :38 left. followed by a
3-pointer by Okeechobee's
Williams.
Bradley Williams hit two
more free throws and Conlin
Veley added one to end
game scoring w ith 4 seconds
left. Veley finished with 14
points for Lake Placid fol-
low\ed by George Rasmussen
w\\th 11 and Hickey with 10.
Perhaps the happiest
Williams of them all. was
Lake Placid head coach Levi
Williams.
"We got a little lead and
our gu.s did a good job on
capitalizing on mistakes,"
Coach Williams after notch-
ing his first victory as Lake
Placid 's coach. "The guys
took care of the basketball
and I don't know what we
shot from the free-throw
line, but we shot well.
"We're young but we've
got to grow up fast. We kne%
\e needed to slow No. 21

Blue Devils pummel



Blue Streaks Thursday


By MARCUS WILKINS
Sif-or 1l rile r
SEBRING The pep in the
step of the Streaks that seemed
to carry o'er from the excmtng
finish in the junior %arsit. game
all but \ withered and died in the
Sebring second half as the
S arsit' team lost
1 to 7Winter Ha\en
79-51.
Winter Haven Chase Berish
79 hit a hanging
79 jumper in the
paint \with under
30 seconds to play to give the
J.V. team a 49-47 \\in, but the
older squad for Sebring had a
hard time keeping it close.
Kyle Hoffner had a produc-
tive night scoring with 17


points but lost his touch %%hen
Sebring came out of the locker
room flat.
Winter Ha\en pushed the
tempo all game long. and as the
game \went on, the Streaks had
no answer for easN. fast-break
points.
Slick shooting Winter Haven
guard Junior Jeudi hit for 13
points and the Blue Devils had
a pair of players with 12. It was
that spreading of the wealth,
that inability of the Streaks to
know who \was going to dart to
the hoop and finish, that kept
them off balance all night
"Winter Haven is going to be
state contending team." said
Sebring coach Prince Harris.
Hoffner lit the fuse for the


Streaks scoring the first seven
for Sebring, the last bucket dur-
ing that stretch being a baseline
three-pointer w ith a defender's
hand in his face. Sam Robinson
kept it going to start the second
quarter \ ith a pair of high-arc-
Ing threes to pull the Streaks
within t\vo. but when the fuse
fizzled. Sebring never caught
fire again.
The Blue Devil energy found
another gear in the second half
as Winter Haven's team speed
confounded the Streaks. Steals
and points off of steals sealed
Sebring's fate as virtually every
player on the Blue Devil roster
got in on the scoring action.

Speigel's blest backstroke
time of the year was 1:03.54,

Nick Perilla was chosen for
