SEBRING It would be easy to
think that nothing was happening Friday
afternoon at the Central Florida
Barbecue Fest.
There were smatterings of people here
and there, and most of them were brows-
ing the flea market. It could easily be
considered the calm before the storm.
But the storm was already taking
place at the grills and inside the trucks,
trailers and tents in the cooking area.
And the smell of barbecue was in the
air.
The early part of Friday is a prepara-
tion day for most teams. Meat is inspect-
ed early Friday morning to make sure it
hasn't been tampered with in any way.
By midday, most teams had begun
cooking brisket, a process that eats up
anywhere from 12 to 16 hours.
"Today, everybody's getting ready,"
Lionel Cunningham of the Skin N'
Bones team said Friday as he worked the
front of his station.
While Cunningham worked outside,
the Skin N' Bones pitmaster, who
Cunningham said "won't talk to anyone
today," took care of the cooking inside
their trailer. Cunningham used the time
to hawk some of his team's homemade
spices and sauces, which they use for
their contest entries and sell to the pub-
lic.
Cunningham said his team, which is
based in Clearwater, compete in barbe-
cue contests every weekend, including
ones in places as far away as New York
and New Jersey.
"The only bad contests are first-year

contests," Cunningham said, "because
they're still working out all the bugs.
But Cunningham said he enjoys the
Sebring event. "These guys know what


they're doing," he said.
While many of the Fest participants
take it very seriously, many more do it
just for fun. McGruff's Bar and Grill,


one of the local teams in the contest, is
one of those teams.
"We know we're not going to win

Local man hopes for


son's heart transplant


Bill O'Brlen
Lake Placid
'They've got to do some-
thing to reduce them taxes.
Everybody's getting rid of
their houses because they
can't afford them."
O'Brien said his road,
Primrose Street in Lake
Placid, floods. He said the
commissioners should fix
that.


Phyllis Ann Novlello
Sebrlng
"It's important to keep
funding the parks. Keep
doing a great job."
Noviello said educating
Highlands youth and letting
them know that there's
more in Highlands County
than the shopping mall is
important.


John Bedwell
Sebring
"I don't have a driver's
license. It's hard to get
around town. We need
busses, especially for the
old people, some of them
shouldn't be driving."
Bedwell said public trans-
portation should be some-
thing the commissioners
explore.

SEBRING Every 16
minutes a new name is added
to the national organ transplant
waiting list, according to the
American Heart Association
Web site.
Last week, Sebring resident
Dan St. George got news
about his son being added to
that list.
"First it was a heart prob-
lem," St. George said of his
29-year-old son Kenny. "He
was misdiagnosed in June, and
we found out that he had con-
gestive heart failure about a
week ago."
CHF, or heart failure, is the
heart's inability to pump
enough blood to meet the
body's needs, according to the
Mayo Clinic Web site.
"His insurance doesn't
cover heart transplant, but it
has been determined that it's
his only chance for survival,"
St. George said of his son. "We
need to raise $300,000 for the
hospital stay before they even
put him on the transplant list."
On top of that, each year
about 17 percent of patients on
the waiting list die before a
new heart is available.
Donor hearts are given
based on the donor's blood
type and body weight, and the


potential recipient's blood
type, body weight, severity of
illness and geographic loca-
tion, according to the
American Heart Association.
This can lead to a wait time
of up to 170 days, the Organ
Procurement and
Transplantation Network said
in statistics taken of 2003-
2004 for men ages 18 to 34.
Fortunately, with the help of
the National Transplant
Assistance Fund, St. George
has found the monumental
task of fund-raising not impos-
sible.
The NTAF is a nonprofit
organization that has been pro-
viding assistance to the trans-
plant community for more
than 20 years.
"We have 254 heart trans-
plant patients that are actively
fund raising with us," Shannon
McMonagle, public relations
coordinator for NTAF, said.
Anyone can help donate
money towards,the transplant
cost, and contributions are tax
deducible.
The NTAF can be reached
on its Web site, www.trans
plantfund.org, or by calling
(800) 642-8399 to make dona-
tions for Kenny St. George's
medical expenses.

"I'm hoping they (act) in

much go along with the

Frick said code

"That's suicide out there

Baker asked the commis-

Baker said the county
should investigate property
insurance rates and do
something about the gas
prices.


Carolyn Lister

"It really doesn't matter
what you say to the com-

Lister said the commis-

Highlands Regional



promotes nurses


By KEVIN J. SHUT
News-Sun
SEBRING They're regis-
tered nurses at Highlands
Regional Medical Center.
They're friends. Now, they're
directors of their respective
departments.
Annette Yunck accepted her
position Wednesday as director
of Maternal Child Services and
Pediatrics.
Debbie Baker, who left
Canada during a nurse hiring
freeze 12 years ago, will lead
the hospital's Emergency Room
and Intensive Care Units.
"I like a rural ER because
you're it," said Baker, who left
a business administration post
with a chiropractor to seek the
challenges of the medical field
and to be closer to the patients.
Baker's first nursing job was
.with HRMC She came up,
- through the ranks,' working asa'
charge nurse in the emergency
room before her promotion.
Yunck has been with HRMC
10 1/2 years, leaving the her
nursing position at a West Palm
Beach hospital to follow her
husband to Lockwood Aviation.
She was employed part-time
at the competing HRMC and
Florida Hospital Heartland
Division.
"I was ambivalent about the
move," Yunck said. She wor-
ried that Sebring's hospitals
wouldn't live up to the stan-
dards she enjoyed on the coast.
However, "The quality of care
that is delivered here is really
up to par. It didn't take me long
to realize that this is the place
where I belong."
Kathleen Border, marketing
and communications director
for HRMC, said the increase in

cils.org, for details.


younger families means greater
hurdles for Yunck and Baker in
their respective departments.
Citing data from the School
Board of Highlands County,
Border said the number of chil-
dren in the county has grown by
almost 3,000 since 1993.
"We've implemented the
pediatric fast track," she said,
explaining that the emergency
room and pediatric departments
teamed up to expedite emergent
care for children who's parents
can bring them in until after
work.
"It's like two lanes of traf-
fic," Baker added.
With two lanes into the ER,
children don't have to wait in
line for adults between 5-9 p.m.
They're seen and treated rela-
tive to other children.
Because pediatric nurses
.aren't assigned to the emer-
,gency rqomr, Baker said her
staff is qualified in pediatric
advance life support.
"It makes the difference in


how many people survive who
come in," Borders said. "Our
hospital has set the bar in edu-
cation very high."
Added Baker, "And our
patients know that."
"I want to continue to
improve children services,"
Yunck said. "And get the com-
munity in Highlands County to
trust in all areas of the hospital
so that this is who the will
choose."
Improvements are under way
for Baker, who's faced with
saving lives amid a $3.5 million
overhaul of the emergency
room.
Both women have served as
interim directors of their depart-
ments several times as the posi-
tions were vacated.
Baker replaced Tammy
Chaundy, who took a position
with a hospital in Lake Wales.
Yunck replaced Mandana
Alborzfard, who was with the
pediatrics director for a rela-
tively brief period, Border said.


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING It's time to get
out the tuxedo or the evening
gown and shine up your danc-
ing shoes.
Tickets are on sale for the
2007 Red & White Ball.
They're expected to go fast.
This year's Ball will be Feb.
10 at The Candlelight
Restaurant on Sun 'N Lake
Boulevard in Sebring.
Last year's Ball was not orig-
inally scheduled for February or
for The Candlelight. However,
the restaurant stepped in on
short notice when the original
venue would not be ready in
time. Everyone had such a good
o time, and enjoyed the location
so well, it has been booked
again.
Once again, GrooVus, the
popular local Jazz band, will


play popular dancing tunes. The
band has been with the Red &
White Ball for four of its five
years. It has become the official
Red & White Ball band.
As always, there will be a
silent auction with several
prizes, gift packages and mem-
orabilia, still to be announced.
Catering, once again, will be
by The Depot in Avon Park.
Drs. Vinod and Tarlika
Thakkar and the Thakkar

location sponsor. Cohan Radio
Group, the News-Sun, and
Jackson Hewitt Tax Services
have all signed on as Premier
Sponsors.

Not just for the birds


News-Sun, Sunday, January 7, 2007 3A


Highlands County Service Center moves to new office


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The American
Red Cross in Highlands County
now has a new office.
Starting with the new year,
the Highlands County Service
Center took up residence in a
new address, 106 Medical
Center Ave. in Sebring, behind
Highlands Regional Medical
Center.
The office officially opened
Jan. 2.
"We're looking forward to
the new space," Service Center
Director Art Harriman said. "It
allows us to expand our number
of classes, both in Disaster and
in Health & Safety, and we'll be


able to do multiple classes at a
time."
The office has 2,000 square
feet, with ample office and
classroom space. It also has
plenty of parking, easily acces-
sible off Highlands Avenue (the
future Sebring Parkway) and
U.S. 27, including plenty of
handicapped spaces.
The office is all on one level
with the parking lot, which will
also provide easier handicapped
accessibility as well as provide
greater ease in loading vehicles
for disaster response.
Harriman said the office will
help him better utilize volunteer
services because "they won't be


stepping all over each other."
The office also will have
backup power, thanks to a gen-
erous donation of a Generac
generator by Grainger
Industrial Supply of Lakeland,
one of the sponsors of the 2006
Ride for the Red.
Harriman said they plan to
dedicate a classroom in honor
of Verdelle Medlin, who dedi-
cated for 69 years of faithful
service to the American Red
Cross.
He also plans to fill the
whole front lobby with local,
regional and national American
Red Cross memorabilia.

during World War II. Along
with the painting is a certificate,
issued on Dec. 31, 1945, and
signed by President Harry S.
Truman, to honor her for her
service.
Harriman also thanks The
Home Depot and Bagwell
Lumber for donating material to
help renovate the new office.
He also expressly thanks the
volunteers, particularly Wes
Morgan, who headed up the
crews to renovate and get the
new offices ready for business.
The office will see a lot of
activity by the middle of
February. Right after holding
the Red & White Ball at the

Lydia's House: A home for women in crisis


Soon to be a

reality
By JAN MEROP
News-Sun Correspondent
WAUCHULA Through
the help of many volunteers and
sponsors, the first part of a min-
istry vision of Sherry White,
founder of Sherry White
Ministries Inc, is about to
become a reality.
Lydia,s House, 601 N.
Florida Ave. in Wauchula, will
be a place for women in crisis
who are ready to commit to a
structured, Bible-based pro-
gram.
"This will be a Christian-
based ministry, not faith-
based," White emphasized.
"The difference is that we want
to have complete freedom to
share the healing that can only
come from God. Only he can
change the core of a person's
heart and desires."
Consequently, Lydia,s House
won't qualify for financial
assistance from the government
and is dependent upon dona-
tions.
Lydia's House will house 12
women in a two-story building.
Sherry White Ministries Inc., a
501c3 non-profit ministry, has
been given a three-year free
lease on the 5,200-square-foot
building by owner Gary
Delatore.
The bedrooms and baths will
be upstairs where a house moth-
er will share the quarters. On
the first floor will be a welcom-
ing reception area, offices,
training and common room and
kitchen. The women will spend
the bulk of their time in the
common areas receiving
instruction, guidance and coun-
seling. They will be permitted
to return to their rooms to relax
shortly before retiring for the
night.
White said that they hope to
reach unwed, expectant moms,
women coming out of jail and
prison, battered or abused
women and women needing
help in transitioning back into
society.
"Wauchula of Hardee County
is still number one in teen preg-
nancy," White said. "Fifty per-
cent of the births in Hardee
County are from unwed moth-
ers."
White was informed that 15
women had recently come
through the office of the
Homeless Coalition with no
place to go.
"The needs are great, but so
are the opportunities to help
women who are hurting."
Women coming into the pro-
gram will be carefully screened
and advised to stay a minimum
of three months, though they
are free to leave the program at
any time.
"They will be selected based
on need, circumstances and
their willingness to work on
themselves and their own
issues. Ages may vary, but for
the present time, only women
18 and older will be accepted.
There is no cost to the women
who come," White said, "as it is
supported by donations."
Lydia's House will use the
curriculum of and is a prototype
of Mercy Ministries, but not
affiliated with it. Mercy.
Ministries was started by Nancy
Alcorn who had worked in the
juvenile justice system in
Tennessee. She was distressed
by its ineffectiveness to change
the girls. She has since opened
several homes throughout the
United States and abroad where
the lives of girls are being trans-
formed. White's desire is to see
the same transformation in
Wauchula.
Like Mercy Ministries,
Lydia's House will be tied into
the community. When a girl is
ready to return to work, school
or whatever, there will be
resources to help her make the
transition as smoothly as possi-
ble.
Greatest need
In order to get Lydia's House
opened in the very near future,
the greatest need is for volun-


teers who can swing a hammer
if even for a few hours one day.
Also, skilled carpenters,
plumbers, electricians, and air
conditioning specialists are
needed; along with people who
can do drywall. and finishing
work.
Sponsors are always wel-
come. Presently, those who

have donated supplies and
funds are: MidFlorida Do It
Best Hardware, who supplied
lumber; Sam's Club of
Bradenton, Clifford Ables III
Attorney and Counselor at Law,
Sebring; Wauchula State Bank;
Cat's Corner; Nicholas's
Restaurant; Java Cafe;
Bellflowers Floor Direct; World
Harvest and Restoration
Ministries, who donated a 15-
passenger van; Vision Ace LLC
and Royal Furniture.
Impossible becomes
possible
When they first looked at the
building they are now renovat-
ing, "impossible" was the word
on everyone's tongue. But
"impossible" to White meant
God surely had to be in it as all
things are possible with him.
"It was filled with second
hand junk with only a small
path from one end of the build-
ing to the other since a second
hand store had been a consider-
ation. We had many garage
sales."
Additional confirmation that
this indeed was the place to
open Lydia's House came as the
county waived the dumping
fees; the city donated a dump
truck; and inmates from Hardee
Correctional Work Camp


helped empty the building.
White has been actively
involved in prison ministry for
years. These workers loved
knowing they could have a part
in this ministry.
When she first realized that
her vision's first step would be
a home for unwed mothers
along with meeting a variety of
needs, she prayed about a name.
After a time, she came across
Acts 16:13-15 in the Bible
where it says in part, "If you
consider me a believer in the
Lord, come and stay at my
house."
"Lydia was a virtuous
woman, a worshipper of God
and hospitable," White said. "I
see our 'Lydia's House' as that
kind of place."
But, Lydia's House is only
the first step in the process of
getting to the fullness of the
vision White was given in June
1999.
The broader vision
White recently found a note
in an old Bible where she had
sown a seed for a home for
women. But, it has been a
process that has led first to
Lydia's House.
However, after planting that

BARBECUE
Continued from 1A
anything," Rhonda Segert, a
member of the team from Lake
Placid, said as she stood next to
the large McGruff the Crime
Dog mascot that stands guard in
front of their tent.
"We come to spend some
time with friends, mainly. It's a
lot of fun."
The Barbecue Fest is an all-
night affair for many of the 40-
plus participating teams. But
being local is an advantage for
McGruff's, since her team
works in shifts of three or four.
Clewiston resident "Tiki"
Tim Reynolds, on the other
hand, said he wouldn't have the
luxury of sleep.
Reynolds, representing Pig
In or Pig Out, spent Friday
preparing and beginning the
long cooking process like
everyone else. He was looking
ahead to a long night of stand-
ing over meat. He started
Friday with the brisket and then
moved on to butts, which take
from six to eight hours to cook,
and then chicken, which can be
cooked in as little as an hour
and a half.
Reynolds said his team com-
petes in six to eight contests a
year, mostly in south Florida.
"Every contest is unique in
its own way," he said, adding
that he likes the Sebring contest
in part because of the size of the
crowd that it draws.
When he's not competing, he
promotes his wares by partici-
pating in motorcycle festivals
around the state and catering.
Reynolds said he comes to bar-
becue festivals mainly to pro-
mote and sell his award-win-
ning sauces, which won third
place in last year's contest and
had taken first prize previously.
Like Reynolds, Susan
Greene has a booth set up sell-
ing her award-winning barbe-
cue sauce. But the situation of



BALLOTS
Continued from 1A
the race..
Currently, it's impossible for
elections officials to determine
whether voters purposely
meant to leave the race blank or
if they didn't make a choice by
accident.
"What we want to do is give
people an option to write on
there, 'I don't want to vote in
this race. I don't really like any
of these people. I don't feel
comfortable,"' said Bennett, R-
Bradenton.
He filed the bill (SB 494)
Thursday, the day that
Buchanan was seated in
Congress to represent Florida's
13th District. House leaders are
investigating the race and have
said Buchanan could be
removed if they determine the
results need to be changed.
Jennings has argued that the
blank ballots, known as under-
votes, were a result of touch-
screen voting machine mal-
function in Sarasota County.
Buchanan has called on her to
concede and a state audit of the
machines produced no evi-
dence they malfunctioned.
Some have said it was poor
ballot design that made it easy
to skip the race to replace
Katherine Harris. Others -
including Bennett believe
many voters skipped the race
on purpose because of a partic-
ularly nasty primary and gener-
al election between the candi-
dates, all but one of whom were
from Sarasota.
Bennett believes his bill will
have strong support from other
lawmakers during the upcom-
ing legislative session that
begins in March. He said he
might face opposition from
election supervisors.
There could be unintended
consequences, said Kathy
Dent, Sarasota County's elec-
tions chief and the vice presi-
dent of the Florida State
Association of Supervisors of


Elections. The association has
not had a chance to review the
measure and take a formal
position, but expects to do so
soon.
Dent said, for example, the
bill needs to clearly spell out
what would happen if the "no
vote" option beats out the can-
didates.
"I personally don't object to
having the requirement ..
Again, you have to think it
through," Dent said.


The crew from Big Papa's Country Kitchen, of Lake Placid, take a break from cooking.


Greene, who represented Ole
Ray's BBQ Sauce Friday, is
slightly different.
Ole Ray's doesn't participate
in the contest itself. Instead,
they donate their sauce to the
Sebring Firemen's Tent, to use
with the plate meals that they
offer to the public. Greene's
company also sponsors the
Florida Boys team, who use it
for their contest entries.
And despite only being
around for six years, Ole Ray's
sauce has won its share of
awards. The company has com-
peted nationally in sauce com-
petitions, taking the Grand
Championship for their
Kentucky Grand Bourbon
sauce at an invitation-only con-
test in Georgia. Ole Ray's sauce
has also been featured on tele-
vision, in "Consumers Digest"
and "Life Magazine."
Greene said most of their
sauce is sold wholesale to
restaurants, and it isn't avail-
able locally in stores. Ole Ray's
doesn't go to many contest any-
more, Greene said, but they
make a point to sell their prod-
uct in Sebring because of the
amount of people that flock to
the event.
"We sell a lot of product to
the people that come -down,"
Greene said. "This is the only
contest we go to anymore."

TUFIN' IT

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


Heaven


on earth
Being a fishing guide was
an assignment I approached
with trepidation not for the
fishing part, for the writing
part.
So many people have been
writing for so long and so well
on the subject that you really
need to have something to say
to even consider adding to the
library.
So what can I say?
Let's start with what some-
one else said, as he was gath-
ering the gear and getting the
boat ready for our sally into
the Thousand Islands, leaving
from Chokoloskee Island.
Mike Reark is a fishing guide,
and tavern owner, who owns
and operates Salty Cracker
Charters with his partner Gary
Peeples.
"Time spent fishing is not
deducted from your life," is
what Reark said. His body and
voice were relaxed, even
though I had gotten lost and
arrived late so we'd missed at
least two hours of fishing.
He was coiling a line, stand-
ing on the deck of his open
boat, a customized creation he
also uses to hunt alligator. As
he looked up, a pelican sailed
across the surface of his reflec-
tive sunglasses.
I thought I must be close to

-^^- ..- Fishing guide


Working with hooks, lines and sinkers


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
CHOKOLOSKEE ISLAND
-Mike Reark and Gary
Peeples are both Florida
natives. They both love to fish
and hunt, and trade stories
drawn from Florida's history.
They both know the Thousand
Islands with the intimate detail
that comes from growing up
there.
So, when Peeples stopped by
Reark's Wild Turkey Tavern in
Avon Park one day about 25
years ago, it didn't take but a
few minutes for the two of them
to realize they were kindred
spirits.
One thing led to another and
they became business partners
as well as friends. Salty Cracker
Charters is the result.
For $450 a day, one or the
other will take fishermen out
into the Thousand Islands, or
off shore. They operate out of
Boca Grande and Chokoloskee,
and provide everything for the
day except food and beer.
They say it isn't easy becom-
ing a fishing guide. It takes a
sizable capital investment just
to get a boat, for one thing, and
operators have to have at least
one million dollars of liability
insurance.
While necessary, it takes
more than local knowledge and
experience to become a fishing
guide.
The United States Coast
Guard regulates maritime
licenses, and fishing guides
who run paying passengers in
boats, no matter how small the
boat, or how few the passen-
gers, have to show they know
what they are doing. A captain's
liceiise is required. The size of


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Mike Reark, a Florida native, has been fishing all of his life. He has turned his favorite pastime into a living by creating Salty Cracker
Charters with his partner, Gary Peeples.


the vessel determines the type
of captain's license a guide
needs to get. The bigger the
boat, and the further off shore
she runs, the more license that
-boat captain needs.
All captains have to pass a
routine physical and know car-
diopulmonary resuscitation and
have an American Red Cross
first aid certificate.
In addition to the federal
licenses, which require operat-
ing experience and passing a
written test, there are state salt
water commercial fishing
licenses that have to be bought.
On top of that, fishing inside
a national park brings addition-
al restrictions and regulations,
and yet another permit.
Everglades National Park


sprawls across the southern tip.
of Florida's peninsula, encom-
passing 2,353 square miles.
Fishing within it takes paper-
work.
"We have to fill out a catch
log," Reark said, "including
even the bait fish or puffers. We
have to indicate what, when and
where, and fill it out right there.
"At the end of the year we
have to do an end-of-year finan-
cial statement, showing how
much we earned on park
grounds."
Reark made it clear he wasn't
complaining. The paperwork,
while plentiful, hadn't turned
out to be overwhelming, he
said, and he complimented the
park ranger>.


As to getting into the busi-
ness. "It's a hard field to get
into," he said. "It's hard to get
accepted by old-timers, so it's a
good idea to get to know them."
Recreational fishing has
become a year round profes-
sion. "We stay as busy as we
want to be," Reark said.
But the 90 day tarpon season
is the make or break time for
most fishing guides. It is their
equivalent of the Christmas sea-
son for retailers.
Reark has noticed some
impact of the quality of the fish-
ing. "(The tarpon) don't come
as early, and don't stay as late,"
he said, then added, "no matter
where you go, it's the same. I
probably remember it better
than it really was when I ivas a


kid."
A large part of a captain's job
is teaching, Reark added. "The
bulk of people from up north
don't know salt water.
"We accommodate everyone
we can. Woman do better. They
listen to us, and let us teach.
Guys think they know better,
and do it their own way. I spend
a fair amount of time climbing
in trees, retrieving tackle."
Not that he's complaining
about that either. "We are not
going to turn this place into
work," Reark said. "It's the
place we love most, including
the Bahamas and Costa Rica.
I'd rather be sitting on my back
porch here than anywhere else."

Editor:

wenuy Urim ins ctterc ut
Dec. 22, nearly a thousand
words, combines misstate-
ments of fact with bizarre
claims. She associates
Holocaust denial with political
leftists although it is usually a
rightist ploy, a thin disguise for
fascist sympathies. She says
that Jordan rules the Temple
Mount. In fact, Israel has ruled
the Temple Mount since the
1967 war.
Delving into biblical prophe-
cy, Griffin identifies Russia
with Gog. This is extremely
unlikely and fanciful identifica-
tion is favored by Hal Lindsay
and other Rapturists. Lindsay,
of course, fails to acknowledge
any view except his own.
"God states that Israel will
find the Anti-Christ who will
confirm a treaty with them,"
Griffin tells us. Where does this
claim come from? The word
"treaty" does not appear in the
Book of Revelation. No where
in the Bible does "treaty,"

It's a party at the newssun.com forums where a discussion about
political affiliations and philosophy is heating up due to former
Avon Park Mayor Tom Macklin's announcement Monday of a new
political party in Highlands County. A link to the "World's
Smallest Political Quiz" which uses 10 questions to gauge
whether an individual is conservative, centrist, liberal, statist or
libertarian has been posted. Here are some results:

"Wow, look how I scored... Right down the middle... *wow,
that's a shocker!*"
Rich

"Uh Oh, I'm a conservative Libertarian. Isn't that just like me?
A contradiction in terms."
Tombea

"I was surprised, I was exactly on the line between Libertarian
and Liberal. I do not consider myself a true liberal, but I do favor
that more than conservative."
Snafu2006

"BTW according to the quiz link I fall into the Libertarian
sector. No real surprise for me. I have a feeling that some so called
'Christians' would feel betrayed if they realized that Jesus might
have been a Libertarian as well."


TileGuy


"pact," or "agreement" appear
with Israel in any passage that
could even remotely apply to
modern Israel.
We don't really know why
self-described fundamentalists
started believing in a Rapture,
an instantaneous removal of
Christians from the Earth.
Nobody had ever heard of this
notion in 1950. In the same
way we don't know why these
same people started believing
that an Anti-Christ will come
out of a peace treaty in the
Middle East.
Take the views of the Rev.
Greg Laurie, who writes on
prophecy for Focus on the
Family and World Net Daily.
Laurie cites Scripture on non-
controversial points. When he
comes to the points that sepa-
rate Rapturists from everyone
else, Laurie fails to cite any
Scripture whatever.
The world we live in is hard
enough to understand and deal
with without imposing an arbi-
trary religious agenda on
events.

We all need to

get along
Editor:
Re: Primary law of nature
Within any country on earth,
numerous politicians fail to
learn a valuable lesson. Natural
law governs every movement.
When political conflict arises,
each physical movement has an
equal opposing movement.
One or the other cannot be
eliminated. So we might as
well try getting along with one
another.
Still, dictators ignore natural
law. Mankind witnessed such
attempts in the past, foes striv-
ing to eliminate an adversary in
Serbia, Germany, Russia or
even in Iraq today. Indeed,


many Islamic nations today
haven't received the message.
In all honesty, too, many clerics
from any worldwide religion
express surprise upon hearing
about the law.
To quote a long-standing
paraphrase, "It takes two to
tango." Sir Isaac Newton for-
mulated the law during the 17th
century, for every force there is
an equal and opposite force. We
may never see the equality in
many nations, but equality
exists among the masses.
Expressing academic igno-
rance, many leaders alive today
still believe their party has the
right to abolish all opposition.
Imagine every possible con-
tingency arising from a bull-
headed tyrant. Arrogance
seems to win the upper hand
for many years, nay decades at
times, while ethnic-cleansing
takes place. Dictators fear los-
ing power. An absolute ruler
believes a national religion and
cultural heritage must be
intended for and enjoyed by
only one particular group.
I'm sure Saddam Hussein of
Iraq discovered Newton's third
law of motion for the first time
on Dec. 30, 2006. What was
Newton's raw version? The
force exerted by the hangman's
noose equaled the momentum
derived from Saddam's falling
body.

Putting the

country back

Editor:
The Republicans have
proven themselves the worlds
biggest bunch of hypocrites.
Now that ithe tablesliave fiuired
and the Democrats control both
Houses we're hearing expres-
sions from them such as: bipar-
tisanship, hands across the
aisle, we must work together


for the good of the country, find
a solution to the war in Iraq and
on and on. Horsefeathers! as
Colonel Potter of "MASH"
would say.
When they had control of
both houses their main objec-
tive was to make the country
into a one party system, theirs.
Remember the gerrymandering
in Texas? All their hidden agen-
das designed to limit
Democratic participation, the
secret meetings held without
official sanction, the "ear-
marks," those phony investiga-
tions requiring trips around the
world in corporate jets that just
happened to include golf and
other leisure pastimes.
Their policies produced huge
deficits that cut out funding for
some of our most critical
national priorities, health care,
education and the environment
to name a few. Their lack of fis-
cal responsibility was shown
by their borrowing money to
the extent those debts can never
be paid off. Rising debt has
inflicted a $25,000 "birth tax"
on every American.
Republicans have ignored
the concerns of American
working families, their priori-
ties are only with the wealthy.
Republicans allowed unem-
ployment benefits to expire in
December 2003, leaving 2 mil-
lion out-of-work Americans
without benefits. They gave
away oil and gas drilling,
mining and grazing rights on
public land to a chosen few.
I could continue with many
more Republican failures but
the News-Sun word limitation
prevents my doing so.
Now, the Democrats have to
clean up the mess made by the
Republicans and put the coun-
try back in shape for all it,s cit-
izens, not just a chosen few.

pole in my hands and the heat


HEAVEN
Continued from 11A
heaven. I knew just what he
meant.
It wasn't just any one thing
either, that accounts for such a
wonderful feeling of well-
being. It is a combination of
many things, exciting all the
senses.
Tasting the salt in the air, for
example.
Or enjoying the thin warmth
of the winter sun.
Or shielding the eyes from
the sun-sparkled surface to
look at the bright green tufts of
mangroves springing out of the
brown, slightly brackish water,
some of them circled with
skirts of oyster shells. Or


squinting at eagles and ospreys
as they circle and dive, the first
robbing fish from the latter.
Or taking in the pungent,
border-line pleasant smell of
low tide while sailing by sandy
shoals stuffed with white peli-
cans.
And being surrounded by
sounds.
Of course the sound of the
water both flowing and lap-
ping; and loudly splashing, as
fish leap up, birds swoop down
and the boat's bow cuts
through the chop; and its quiet
gurgling as it slips past the
moorings and mangroves.
There is the sound of the
wind and the sea gulls too.
Time does seem to stand
still.
Then, anchor set, and hard at


work, sounds and feelings
become subtler: The gentle
heave of the boat as it floats in
the current, pulling the anchor
line taut. The whir of the fila-
ment as it flies from the rod
when the wrist whips the pole.
The almost silent "plip" as the
bait hits the water and sinks.
The feel of.the plastic thread
as you work the rod, pulling
up, reeling down, and it bites
into your finger. Or the tickle
of the shrimp's feet against
your palm as you bait the
hook.
How conversation dwindles
and dies peacefully as you give
in to the rhythm of the waves,
and the moment.
Then, the adrenaline rush
that explodes with the sharp
yank on the hook and spin of
the line.
The chaotic roil of the water
as the fish struggles this way
and that. Sudden voices rise in
excitement: "Take up the
slack." "Pull back." "Look
out."
At first even the little nib-
blers seem like a fight, until
you meet a fish with shoulders
and heft.
Nothing accents the beauty
of nature more, than taking


something from it. Blackened
snapper has its niche in life -
although that day we caught
nothing of an edible size.
But we didn't care, because
we caught quite a lot. Red fish,
lady fish, sea trout and snook;
it was even pleasing to release
them.
I say we, because Reark
spent the day modeling exactly
what a good fishing guide
should be.
I was fishing for the first
time in about 30 years, so rusty
I was a novice, but Reark
never made me feel stupid, or
awkward, or silly; not when I
hooked a mangrove for the first
time, or even the third. Or
when, at one hole, every
shrimp I cast was nibbled off
the hook as soon as it hit the


ways, he said, pointing to the
mid-channel that rippled with
the tide, and rock pools, deep
holes and mangrove rooted
shallows. Different fish hang
out in different spots, in such
variety and plenty that, with
patience and a little luck, you
can catch anything you want.
"Everything that swims in
Florida passes through here,"
he said.
Standing on the gently bob-
bing deck, a well-balanced


pole in my hands and the heat
of the sun on my shoulders, I
not only believed it, I felt a
part of it. And I wanted to stay
forever.
So much for time.

ness person who has a job they
would like to highlight in the
Tuffin'It With Tuffley feature
should call 385-6155, ext. 528,
or e-mail cindy.marshall@
newssun.com.


Christopher Tuffley holds up the first red fish he caught. It ended up
being one of the smallest fish he caught that day, but everyone will
have to take his word for it. In addition to red fish, Tuffley and
Reark pulled in several lady fish, two cat fish, a handful of jacks, a
sea trout, a snook, mangrove snappers and a young Goliath grouper,
which used to be called Jew fish.

A gull rest on what is left of an
old ice house that used to serv-
ice fishermen off the coast of
Chokoloskee Island.
Chokoloskee is the southern end
of the Thousand Islands, which
lay in a thick band and hug the
west coast of the state, starting
at Marco Island. The area is
part of the Everglades National
Park, and fishing is strictly reg-
ulated.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

Half full or

half empty
Hurricane Katrina vic-
timized many families. One
family in New Orleans who
lost everything relocated to
another state. While in the
process of loss and reloca-
tion, they didn't let the
physical devastation take a
toll on their spirit of giving.
While being on the
receiving end of the gen-
erosity of others for the
first time, it kindled the
deeply held values they
always had for caring for
others. Regardless of their
own meager circumstances,
they reached out to pack
Operation Christmas Child
shoe boxes for needy chil-
dren.
This had been a tradition
in the past. Knowing the
difference the generosity of
others had made in their
lives, they were spurred on
even more to continue their
yearly mission. Their
impoverished situation
intensified their desire to
share the love of God with
others.
Dealing with such loss
could have prompted them
to put this yearly undertak-
ing on hold till they could
get some semblance of
order back into their own
lives. Rather, they chose to
see the glass half full rather
than half empty.
It is said that attitude
determines altitude. Are we
going to fly with the eagles
because we see the glass
half full? Or, will we
remain on the ground with
the chickens and peck out
our existence?
It reminded me of two
wealthy people who came
to Jesus. One was a tax col-
lector. The other was a rich
young ruler. In both
instances, they had the
opportunity to receive sal-
vation through Christ.
One did. The other did-
n't. Why do you suppose
that is?
One saw the glass half
full. The other saw it half
empty.
Zacchaeus, the tax col-
lector, was a very wealthy
man. When he came face to
face with Christ, he wanted
to give half his possessions
to the poor and recompense
those he had cheated.
Jesus didn't ask him to
give it away. Rather,
Zacchaeus had seen his
need and all he had to gain
by coming to Christ. In so
doing, he'd viewed the
glass half full and over-
flowed with generosity. He
was ready to soar with the
eagles.
But, in the case of the
rich young ruler, Jesus said
he should sell what he had
and come and follow him.
The Bible says in Luke 18:
23, NIV that this saddened
the young man.
"Because he was a man
of great wealth."
He saw the glass half
empty because he saw how
much he had to lose. And,
in so doing, he remained
unsaved willing to peck
out an existence (albeit a
wealthy one) with the
chickens.
With Christ as our great-
est possession, we'll see
our circumstances as the
glass half full and overflow
with his abundant life.
Selah.

Eyewitness to history


A former


'hobo'


celebrates


90 years


of living

By LARRY LEVEY
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
W oodrow Wilson was
president when
James Philip "Phil"
Simpson was born in 1916, but
the first president he recalls is
Calvin Coolidge.
That piece of Americana
came to light Dec. 5 at Golf
Hammock Country Club at a
surprise 90th birthday celebra-
tion put on by his wife, Betty,
and other family members.
Simpson, from Sebring, also
talked about taking part in sev-
eral major chapters of
American history, including the
time he and a friend "hoboed"
across the Midwest. It was in
the early 1930s, during the
depths of the Great Depression.
That's when thousands of men
became hoboes, grabbing rides
on freight trains, looking for
work and begging for food.
"We had some money when
we left Illinois," he said, "but
by the time we got to Kansas,
we were broke, so we did a lot
of bumming, going to houses
and asking for food. People fed
us, but no one ever asked us to
do any work."
Simpson and his buddy
"rode the rails" from Illinois to
Kansas and Texas and back.
"We got thrown off trains two
or three times," he said.
After returning home, he
joined the Civilian
Conservation Corps. This was
one of the "New Deal" pro-
grams initiated by President
Franklin D. Roosevelt to help
pull the country out of the
Depression. The CCC gave
millions of young, unemployed
men a job saving the natural
resources of the United States.
Living in camps operated by
the military, these boys were
paid $30 a month, but the gov-
ernment sent $25 of that
amount back to the families to
help them cope with the
Depression.
Simpson served in Illinois,
the state of Washington and

grandchildren Alayna Cooper, 4, from Michigan, and Erik Davis, 9, from Ohio.


Michigan during his three
years in the CCC. "I helped
build fire trails, did some car-
pentry and worked in a tree
nursery, planting seeds and
harvesting small trees," he
said. "I also supervised a crew

ranger station in Washington.

in-law, along with friends and
neighbors and other members

"The party went over well,"
Betty said. "Phil was surprised,
absolutely thrilled."


Whatever happened to


By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
I can still see my preschool son playing in the early
morning hours of the day dressed in his feet pajamas.
No rushed mornings; just relaxed, unhurried playtime
that stirred his creative imagination.
With plastic hammers and saws he entered his world
of pretend to build. Other times, his fingers nimbly
worked soft clay designing creatures and things.
Unhurried reading time opened his mind to all that
awaited him in the great world of books.
Year after year his abilities increased and cars and
trucks found their way onto pretend highways lined by
Lego buildings and miniature construction workers and
their tools. His world of play and imagination created a
host of wonderful places without leaving home -
unless he was enjoying creative play in the great out-
doors.
So, I can't help wondering whatever happened to
playtime. Is it really lost? And, if so, can't we find it
again?
Perhaps to some, such unhurried play seems like a
lost world not available in today's jam-packed,
demand-filled schedules.
But my world wasn't storybook perfect either. I was
a single mom with financial concerns. However, I had
purposed in my heart to do without to be home with my
toddler.

At a time when home businesses were uncommon
(and today there are many options for parents), God
provided an organization that hired me to type from
home. The pay was small, but the reward was great. It's
a decision neither my son nor I have ever regretted.
Today's children aren't home very often with so
many activities squeezed into their day. It's a wonder
there's anytime for creativity found in the simple act of
playing ... alone or planned with some choice friends.
A balanced amount of structured, enriching activities
is good; but, some children along with rushing out
each morning to go to day care are never given
unhurried time to be; to play; to imagine on their own.
Spontaneous free time nurtures healthy development.
Good old fashioned playtime gives them that outlet.
How about catching fireflies, blowing bubbles, chas-

playtime?

ing butterflies or playing in the sprinklers? Some
wrestling on the floor with dad; hide and seek; and a
game of catch in the yard will bring on the giggles so
needed for a child's carefree blossoming.
Unstructured play is hailed by some studies as a
boon to a child's discovery of his own passions. He has
time to think things through thus promoting problem
solving skills.
In essence, children in today's society are under a lot
of stress stress that shouldn't accompany the life of
a child.And stress is not healthy.
A verse in the Bible found in Ephesians 6: 4 says that
we shouldn't exasperate our children; but, rather bring
them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
God is an awesome Creator who has designed us to
reflect him. We need to give creative potential room to
be expressed.
Jesus loves children and said we need to become like
them to enter the kingdom of heaven. He desires for lit-
tle ones to know him, always welcoming them.
Let's evaluate if we're overwhelming our children
with the culture's demands. Let them be children who
play. It's amazing who they'll become when there's
time to discover who they are.

ARTS & LEISURE


SFCC Lifetime Learners Institutes hosting interactive art show


AVON PARK For the first
time ever, South Florida
Community College's Lifetime
Learners Institute is sponsoring
a morning-long art show with
an emphasis on interaction
between artists and visitors.
The show, called "Quilters,
Painters, Jewelers, and
Woodcarvers" is scheduled for
9 a.m. to noon Thursday, Jan.
18, in Room H-111 on the
Highlands campus. The event's
moderator will be Patricia
Pond, a frequent institute pre-
senter who is also a correspon-
dent for the News-Sun.
The event is part of the
Lifetime Learners Institute's
Tuesday/Thursday enrichment
series organized for the benefit
of 55-plus seniors from
Highlands, Hardee and DeSoto
counties. The daily fee for all
the events are $5.
Organizing the event is the
Sebring-based Highlands Art
League, whose artist-members
will be presenting a hands-on
fair. The quilters will be sewing,
the painters painting, the jewel-
ers twisting, and the wood-
carvers carving, said Rebecca
Rousch, director of SFCC


Honeybells


Community Education.
The variety of crafts the
league plans to showcase will
provide the backdrop to a series
of structured presentations the
artists will make about their
specific crafts, Rousch said.
Each artist will talk and demon-
strate his or her media, and give
visitors the opportunity to not
just observe but also to ask,
touch and buy items of interest.
The show reflects the
Lifetime Learners Institute
approach to learning. "It's
designed to give people a
chance for academic enrich-
ment without reliance on lec-
tures," Rousch said. "We're
much more informal. The insti-
tute is a welcoming place. We
make it a place that's comfort-
able to visit. We want people to
leave here saying 'Ohh, that's
interesting, I didn't know that'
or 'I want to know more about
that.'"
Artists expected to take part
in the art show and demonstra-
tions are:
Arnold Jonathan, of
Sebring, is a jeweler and silver-
smith who creates sterling sil-
ver jewelry with semi-precious

unusual media including
gourds and Christmas orna-
ments. She paints imaginative
artworks that often incorporate
elements of nature, but also
paints portraits by commission.
She has taught children's art
classes at the Highlands Art
League and at summer camp.
Tom Bruha, of Sebring,
works in watercolors and is cur-
rently studying at SFCC. A for-
mer advertising artist with
national accounts, he will being
examples of an ad campaign
from the artist's viewpoint, and
explain the development
process.
Chuck Thomas, of Avon
Park, is a woodcarver, a former
college professor and instructor
at SFCC. He will bring samples
of his wood carvings, show off
his tools and demonstrate carv-
ing techniques.
Anne Watson, of Avon
Park, is an oil and acrylic
painter and art instructor who


also has works on display at the
Yellow House and teaches at
the Highlands Art League. She
will speak about the art league
itself, including the benefits of
membership, and classes for
adults.
Linn Shimek, Sandy Spice
and Mary Seigfried are three
contemporary quilt art artists
who all have roots in traditional
quilting but whose creations
reflect that of a modem paint-
ing. Although their works are
constructed like traditional
quilts, they use their sewing
machines much as painters use
brushes, to sweep across the
canvas to add color, shading,
detail and background. Their
designs are complex, and the
artists will demonstrate "free
motion quilting."
For more information about
the show or the Lifetime
Learners Institute, call the
Community Education office at

Gallery features first exhibit


LAKE WALES The Lake
Wales Arts Center announces
the opening for the first exhibit
of 2007 in the Michael Crews
Gallery.
Cay Ballou Eden: Oil
Paintings will open Thursday,
Jan. 25, with a reception that is
open to the public from 5-7
p.m. Eden, who is a Lake Wales
resident, will be present to talk
about her work and answer any
questions about her fabulous oil
paintings. There is no admis-
sion to the reception or the
gallery for the exhibit.
Eden's work will be on dis-
play from Jan. 25 to March 18.
She said, "Light and color
reflect the inherent beauty, vari-
ety and excitement of all that
surrounds us. In the natural
realm, a sacred order comes
surely into focus if one but sees,
and innate energy years to be
harnessed.
Color, line, form and motion,
then should work in concert to


properly structure a work of art.
My great joy is being part of
this creative process working
towards a satisfying whole -
and a painting is born." Her
work must be viewed to appre-
ciate the exuberance of her
style, large brush strokes and
freedom of movement depicted
in her many landscape paint-
ings.
Eden graduated from Vassar
College with an art minor and
studied under Lewis Rubenstein
and Wendell Jones. She also
studied under Monty Lewis at
the Coronado School of Art in
Coronado, California. She is a
member of Greenwich Art
Association, Shreveport Art
Club, Louisiana Artists and the
Martha's Vineyard Art
Association.
For information on this or
any other event at the Lake
Wales Arts Center call (863)

Stirring up some tasty dishes using tomatoes


Florida and California annu-
ally account for two-thirds to
three-fourths of all commercial-
ly produced fresh-market toma-
toes in the United States.
Including processing, Florida is
the second-largest tomato-pro-
ducing state, but it is tops in
producing fresh-market toma-
toes.
Tomatoes are one of the
highest-valued crops in Florida
and bring in about one-third of
the state's vegetable cash
receipts. Florida's season,
October to June, has the great-
est production in April and May
and again in November to
January.
Fresh Florida tomatoes are
low-calorie, low-sodium, a
good source of fiber and high in
vitamins A and C. Studies show
that the antioxidant lycopene
found in tomatoes blocks can-
cer, aging, and cellular damage.
Ripe, red Florida tomatoes add
flavor, color and good nutrition
to any dish.
To test for ripeness, first look
at color. It should be an even,
bright red. Next check firmness.
The tomato should yield slight-
ly to pressure. Never store
tomatoes in the refrigerator. A


chilled tomato will not finish
ripening as cold halts the ripen-
ing process. Cold also kills the
flavor of tomatoes, so even
when the tomatoes are fully
ripe, keep them out of the
refrigerator.
If your Florida tomatoes are
not yet ripe, you can ripen them
by storing them at room tem-
perature in a dry spot. A day or
two at room temperature may
be enough, usually no more
than five days. Just wait until
you can see they are a rich red
color. Always store your toma-
toes stem end up. Leaving a
tomato on its shoulders, even
for a few days, is enough to
bruise it.
Fresh ripe tomatoes are great
tasting all by themselves, but
they're also fun and easy to
cook with. The following
recipes should help get you
started cooking with fresh ripe
tomatoes.
Spaghetti squash is a rich,
mellow vegetable and when
accented with sauteed fresh
Florida tomatoes, and with a
hint of balsamic vinegar, it
becomes a delicious entree.

In a large-sized

utes, until mixture is thick. Add
vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.
Remove squash from oven
and top with the prepared toma-
to sauce. Sprinkle with
Parmesan cheese, and basil
strips. Serve immediately.
Serves 4 to 6.


Tomato Sandwiches are deli-
cious treats that are deceptively
simple. Serve them as a light
lunch or versatile side dish.
Tomato Sandwiches.
6-8 large firm, ripe red toma-
toes
1/2 cup mayonnaise or
whipped cream cheese
1 large onion, thinly sliced
6-8 small arugula leaves,
washed and patted dry (or other
leafy green)
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
with 1 tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup bread crumbs, unfla-
vored, toasted
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
Slice each tomato to obtain
1/2-inch thick slices from the
widest portion of the tomato,
making sure to avoid the core.
Spread 1 heaping tablespoon of
mayonnaise on one half of the


tomato slices. Top each with an
onion slice,.arugula leaf and a
second slice of tomato. Dip
each sandwich into the beaten
egg mixture and then the bread
crumbs. Gently shake off any
excess bread crumbs. Set sand-
wiches aside. In a large heavy
saute pan, warm the butter and
olive oil over medium heat. Slip
each sandwich into the pan and
fry until golden brown, about 3
minutes on each side. Remove
and serve immediately. Serves 6
to 8

Prime information for subprime market


Special to the NewusSun
TALLAHASSEE
Subprime loans play an impor-
tant role in today's home
financing marketplace.
These products can make
homeownership possible for
many American families who
have less than perfect credit
records or those who otherwise
fail to qualify for prime, con-
ventional loans. Subprime
loans, for existing homeowners
in financial distress, can also be
used as an alternative to bank-
ruptcy or foreclosure.
Consumers who have



Steps tc
Here are some pointers to
follow throughout the year:
January
If you have bought, sold, or
refinanced your home during
calendar year 2006, make sure
to review with your accountant
which expenses are tax
deducible.
February
Read carefully before you
sign any documents. Don't sign
any document you haven't read
or has blank spaces to be filled
in after you sign. Don't be pres-
sured into signing any loan
papers that you do not under-
stand. If you need an explana-
tion of any terms or conditions,
talk to someone you trust, such
as a knowledgeable family
member or attorney. Get copies
of everything you sign.
March
In order to improve your
credit score before buying a
home, do not consolidate credit
card accounts to one or two
cards and close out other
accounts. Consolidation of
your credit card balances will
noticeably distort the appear-
ance of your credit utilization.
Having a low balance on sever-
al credit cards is better than
having a high balance on one or
two cards where exceeding
more than 30 percent of your
available credit limit would
Syndicate you were a higher cred-
it risk profile.
April
If your lender can only quali-
fy you for a non-prime or sub-
prime loan program option
based on your credit score,
make sure you understand all


encountered financial hardship
in the past such as bankruptcy,
liens, or excessive debt can still
get approved for a mortgage.
However, until their credit
improves, they will have to
accept a subprime loan and
should expect to pay a higher
interest rate as well as provide a
larger down payment.
"Subprime loans allow the
American dream to become a
reality for consumers with a
spotty credit history," stated
Patrice Yamato, CRMS,
President of the Florida
Association of Mortgage


Brokers. "Unfortunately, sub-
prime loans are sometimes
unfairly misrepresented as
predatory loans. This paints an
inaccurate picture of these valu-
able products and might deter
some individuals from pursuing
homeownership."
Consumers can work to
improve their credit profile and
eventually achieve prime status
by taking the following steps
suggested by the FAMB:
Pay off or significantly
reduce high interest credit card
debt
Pay your mortgage and


other bills on time
Establish a savings
account
Work with a mortgage bro-
ker such as a FAMB member or
other originator who has experi-
ence in the subprime market
and can guide you accordingly
Work with your mortgage
broker or loan originator to con-
tact the three major credit
bureaus to clear up any inaccu-
racies on your credit report
Create consistency in your
employment history by main-
taining a job at the same com-
pany for at least one year


Whether you are classified as
a prime or subprime borrower,
the FAMB offers the following
tips to avoid abusive lending
practices:
Shop around and compare
Negotiate
Be cautious
Never act impulsively
Understand the terms of
your loan
Don't be afraid to ask
questions
Read carefully before you
sign
Borrow only the amount
you need and can afford to


)follow in being a homeowner


terms of the loan before agree-
ing to sign any loan documents.
Shop around and compare inter-
est rates and find out what the
total costs of the loan will be as
well as your monthly payment
before making a decision. Use
the Good Faith Estimate from
each application to compare the
loan terms and costs. Contact
your local Better Business
Bureau agency to see if there
have been any negative reports
on the mortgage professional
you select to work with.
May
In order to be considered a
vacation home, the residence
must be located within a set dis-
tance from one's primary resi-
dence.
June
The monies you obtain from
a reverse mortgage program can
be paid to you in several ways:
As a single lump sum of
cash
As a cash advance once a
month
As a "creditline" account
that lets you decide when and
how much of your available
cash is paid to you. The unused
portion of your credit line
grows each month, releasing
even more equity for your
future use.
As a combination of any of
these methods
July
Prior to making a decision of
buying a home, it is recom-
mended that borrowers discuss
in detail with their mortgage
originator all available program
options. Consumers, and their
mortgage originators, need to

consider factors such as:
How long the person/fam-
ily intends to live in the home
How much money they
have for a down payment
Whether the consumer is
looking for consistency or flex-
ibility with their monthly mort-
gage payment.
August
During your home inspec-
tion, is it wise to walk through
the entire home with the inspec-
tor including attics and base-
ments to look for previous fire
or water damage, mold, proper
insulation, wildlife infestation
or other problems where some-
thing just doesn't seem to look
right in those areas which are
not often used on a daily basis.
September
Just like when making the
decision to hire with a doctor,
realtor, or the day care center,
interview the mortgage profes-
sional you will be working
with. Also obtain references
from trusted family members
and friends who have worked
with this industry professional
before and find out how they
helped them make the largest
financial transactions of their
lives.
October
When deciding if owning a
home is right for you and your
family, see the benefits in what
homeownership cat do for you:
Monthly mortgage pay-
ments increase home equity,
which is often the base from
which you build your financial
future.
Homes typically appreci-
ate in value.

November
As a consumer tip to avoid
abusive lending practices and
fraudulent industry scams, it is
advised to consumer to be cau-
tious. Be wary of anyone who
calls you on the phone, solicits
you in the mail or comes to
your door offering "bargain
loans." Beware of claims that
the offer is only available for a
short period of time. Beware of
lenders claiming 'bad credit -
no problem." If the loan seems
too good to be true, it probably
is.
December
Start planning the amount to
be put in your escrow account
.;_each, month by. noting the fol-
lowing:
Payment due dates and


amounts insurance premiums,
local and county taxes, and any
special tax assessments such as
local school district taxes.
Figure which tax bills the
seller has already paid for the
year and which you will be
responsible for paying.

Matinee Series in the SFCC
Auditorium at 1:30 p.m.
Tuesday.
The group 4:2:Five has been
shattering the a cappella stereo-
type since 2000 with powerful
performances across the United
States. Evolving from a street
corner barbershop sound and
drawing on rock, jazz, and
blues, 4:2:Five creates a musi-
cal experience unlike any other.


The group recreates an entire
instrumental band with only
five microphones and five voic-
es.
To categorize its approach to
recording as innovative would
be an understatement. The clar-
ity of its harmonies, melodies,
and vocal performances render
4:2:Five akin to a professional-
ly orchestrated band, minus the
instruments.
The entire SFCC Matinee
Series is once again being co-
sponsored this year by Tim and
Martile Blackman/Captain D's


Seafood and by Rick and Jean
Moyer.
Tickets for this performance
range from $9 to $12 and may
be purchased online 24 hours a
day, seven days a week, at
www.southflorida.edu. Tickets
may also be purchased by call-
ing the SFCC Box Office at
784-7178 or by visiting the
SFCC Box Office located at the
front of the SFCC Auditorium,
600 West College Drive,
Highlands campus, Avon Park,
from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.,
Monday through Friday.


Olicon Delta


Collins chosen as

Crafter of the Month


LAKE PLACID The
Crafter of the Month for
January at the Caladium Arts
and Crafts Cooperative is
Nancy Collins.
Crafting began early in
Collins' life. First one grand-
mother introduced her to knit-
ting, and then the other grand-
mother taught her to sew on her
treadle sewing machine.
Collins' mother taught her to
crochet and paint.
Her creativity flourished in
school when she was the stu-
dent everyone asked to draw
something, do printing on
posters or cut out items from
construction paper.
At Florida State University
Collins majored in the arts.
While there she did lettering for
the state of Florida Department
of Agriculture, worked on
homecoming displays and did
numerous drawings and paint-
ings.
Collins considers herself a
self taught artist and crafter.


Starting with oils, and then
changing to acrylic paint, she is
currently trying collage and
decoupage.
She has entered her paintings
at the Florida State Fair in
Tampa and received numerous
ribbons. Her work has been
exhibited at our local hospital
and is on display at the Hardee
County Library in Wauchula.
Collins is a lover of crafting
and will try any new craft that
comes along. She has seven
grandchildren and two great-
grandchildren with whom she
shares her talent, thus blending
her two loves; family and art.
Collins said, "I plan to con-
tinue my painting and crafting
as long as the good Lord
allows."
If anyone would like to view
or perhaps purchase some of
Collins' work, visit the
Caladium Arts and Crafts
Cooperative on Interlake
Boulevard.

Trivia Time
Who holds the


Q





A


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Leah Wigger holds a five-shot lead heading into
today's final round of the Harder Hall Women's
Invitational.


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING It was a dream
round for Alison Walshe on
Saturday at the Harder Hall
Women's Invitational. The only
problem is she'll have to repeat that
dream and get some help if
she wants to catch Leah Wigger.
Walshe, a 21-year-old junior at
the University of Arizona, set a
course and tournament record with a
6-under 66 Saturday morning, but
that was only good enough to gain
one stroke on Wigger, who fired a
67 to tie the previous course record
and expand her lead to five shots
heading into today's final round.
Beth Bauer held the previous
record of 67, doing it once on her
way to winning the 1999 title by
eight shots, then two more times the
next year, when she finished a


record 16-under to win by 16
strokes.
SWalshe's round only tied her per-
sonal best, "but it still feels good,"
she said.
Starting on No. 10, Walshe
birdied the par-4
14th and the par-3
16th to get some
momentum heading
into the treacherous
17th hole,, a par-5
with water guard-
ing the front of the
WALSHE green.
That momentum
got dialed up several notches when
she made an eagle.
"I was like, 'All right, maybe I
can get a good round going.' That
definitely picked up my momen-
tum," Walshe said of the eagle,
which got her to 4-under on the


round.
She went to 5-under with a birdie
on No. 2, then gave a shot back on
No. 3 before closing with birdies on
Nos. 6 and 7 to set the record, even
though she didn't know it at the
time.
"I had no clue. I was talking to
one of the media ladies after (the
round), and she thought it was (a
record)," Walshe said. "I said, 'No,
there's got to be something lower.'
She double checked it and told me.
It was a nice surprise."
After opening the tourney with
rounds of 78 and 75, Walshe said
she knew she would turn in a lower
score on Saturday simply because
she was shaking off the rust after
taking two weeks off.
"I knew I would go lower because

Red Devils, Blue Streaks have two games that go





Down to the wire


Lady Streaks rally to

win 34th straight

regular-season game
By SCOTT DRSSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK For over three quar-
ters Friday night, the Sebring Lady Blue
Streaks looked like a team that hadn't
played a game in two weeks, while the
Avon Park Lady Red Devils, who also
took the holidays off, looked like they
hadn't skipped a beat.
The final four minutes, however,
showed why Sebring came into the night
with a 34-game regular-season winning
streak as the Streaks outscored their rivals
S 14-5 to escape with a 55-49
Sebrng win.
S The tide turned in a 31-
55 second span of the fourth
Avon Park quarter when junior Chelsea
9 Davis hit back-to-back 3-
-49 pointers to lift Sebring from
a three-point deficit to a
three-point lead they would never give up.
"I told her in the first half to keep shoot-
ing," Sebring coach Robert Sampson said
of Davis. "She's a good shooter and
they're going to fall and finally they fell
for us at the right time. We had some key
free throws down the stretch to open that
lead up a little bit more."
The Streaks (14-0) hit six-of-eight free
throws in the final 1:04 to keep their lead
intact in spite of the Devils (10-4) refusing
to give in, getting a 3-pointer from Daija
Barrett with 18.3 second left that made it
52-49.
Brenita Grant made a free throw with
9.6 seconds left to give the Streaks a four-

point lead, and Davis truly iced the game
by making two from the stripe with 4.5
seconds on the clock.
"We didn't play well tonight and Avon
Park played a great game," Sampson said.
"They wanted it more in the first three-


and-half quarters, but that last four min-
utes ... we played hard and came back on
them."

News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING Coach Eric
Zwayer talked to his Red
Devils about their lackluster
shooting from the free-throw
line during halftime, and when
Friday night's game at rival
Sebring High School
came down to the wire, Avon
they delivered the goods
with a 65-62 victory over 6
the Blue Streaks. Set
The game marked the
first time these teams had 6
played at night in six
years. Certainly nobody was
asking for a refund after the
hard-fought contest played out.
Avon Park (5-10 overall)
gained the lead midway
through the first period and did-
n't trail again until the fourth.
Sebring (8-9) appeared to have
its ship righted, taking a 53-48
lead on T.J. Williams' steal and


layup with 4:14 left in the
game.
Kyle Hoffner, who led all
scorers with 20 points and 11
rebounds, triggered the Blue
Streaks' 8-0 scoring run and
Brandon Diaz-Ascanti complet-
ed a 3-point play with 4:32 to


go opening up a 50-48
lead. Williams added a
field goal and Hoffner hit
a free throw to bulge the
lead to five points.
Just when it appeared

that with a steal and layup and
Javier Medina hit two free
throws with 1:46 remaining
open up a 60-58 lead. Grubb,
who scored 12 for the Streaks,
bagged a short jumper with
1:23 left and Diaz-Ascanti hit a
long jumper from the side to
finish with 18 and put the
Streaks back up 62-60 with 41
seconds to go.
Avon Park closed out the
scoring with freshman center
Cleveland Nobles hitting a
short goal with 26 seconds left
to tie the game. Medina added
two clutch free throws with
16.5 seconds to go.
Following a Hoffner miss
and an Avon Park rebound,
Jairius Hilton went to the chari-
ty stripe for two shots with 5
seconds left. He missed the first
and nailed the second.
The Streaks inbounded the
ball and Williams narrowly
missed a 3-pointer as the buzzer
sounded.
Zwayer was proud of his
young team's effort in pulling
out the victory.
"Two in a row; we're on a
streak," Zwayer joked after the
game. "Big rivalry game it
doesn't get any better than this,
down to the wire, close.
"We're a young team and
they're searching for something
to get confidence."
Avon Park had more bal-
anced. scoring with Medina
leading the way with 12 points,
followed by Caldwell with 11

cruised to lead 31-23 during
halftime. Avon Park was con-
verting a bevy of steals and
errant shots into points. Wilson
had six points for the Devils in
the second.

mal starting point guard A.C.

Davarius Dawkins (knee), got


LEAD
Continued from 1D
I was finally getting my feel back after not play-
ing for a while, but no, I didn't think I'd shoot 66.
"I was just hitting greens. I was more comfort-
able. I hadn't played in a couple of weeks, so the
first two days I was a little scratchy. I was play-
ing all over the place and I wasn't comfortable.
But today, I was hitting fairways and greens, and
I think that was the key. My putting's been going
well, so once I hit the greens, I was able to make
some putts."
To catch Wigger in today's final round, how-
ever, Walshe said she would have to set another


back into contest in the third
period, closing to 44-43 at the
third stop. Hoffner led the way
with nine third-period points
for Sebring.
Both teams played a full-
court press defense the whole
game, and Avon Park appeared
to have the edge in the speed
department, especially getting
to loose balls.


record and have Wigger turn in her worst round
of the tournament.
Wigger, an All-American for the University of
Virginia, made her own run at the record on
Saturday. Coming into the day with a two-shot
lead over Candace Schepperle, Wigger rebound-
ed in a big way from Friday's 1-over 73 with
three birdies on her front nine (she also started on
No. 10) and then four more in her final nine holes
for nines of 34-33.
That put her at 7-under for the tournament and
expanded her lead over Schepperle, who shot a
70, to five shots. Jacqui Concolino shot a 69 on
Saturday and is tied with Schepperle for second,
followed by Sally Watson at I-over and Walshe at
3-over.


RALLY
Continued from ID
Streaks most of the game, espe-
cially in the early going, forcing
Sebring into 24 turnovers. Most
of them came in the first half as
the Devils, behind Barrett and
Beonca Godfrey, put together
an 11-0 run in the first quarter
to take a 15-4 lead, and led 16-
7 at the first break.
Sampson had to think for a
second when asked when was
the last time his Streaks trailed
by 11 points in the opening
period. "It's been a while," he
finally said. "It's been a long
time."
The Streaks immediately
began to climb back into the
game once the second quarter
started. Hannah Shoop hit two
free throws near the end of a
14-2 run to start the quarter that
gave the Streaks their first lead
at 19-18 with four minutes left
in the half, but the Devils
closed strong and took a 28-25
lead into intermission after
Kysi Wooden hit a layup at the
buzzer.
Another big run by the
Devils, this one an 8-0 spurt,
but them up by nine three min-
utes into the third quarter. The

lead remained intact through
the rest of that frame and into
the fourth, when Wooden's
layup with 6:24 remaining put
Avon Park ahead 44-37.
The tide turned from there.
Brittany Bullock, who had nine
points and 19 rebounds, and
Hannah Shoop (15 points, eight
rebounds) made shots in the
paint to pull Sebring to within
three points and set the stage for
Davis' heroics.
Whitney Lee led all scorers
with 16 points for Sebring.


Godfrey and Shantavia Sims
each scored 11 for Avon Park.
"I'm real proud of the girls.
They came back and showed
some character," Sampson said.
"I think this game was impor-
tant for us, being a close game
and getting behind and seeing if
we can come back.
"We showed tonight we can
come back and win close ball
games."
Avon Park coach Paulette
Daley declined to comment
after the game.
