Museum


serves up


culture at


new diner

By KATARA SIMMONS
News-Sun
SEBRING Make believe
you are eating sushi served by
a 4-year-old wearing a kimono
or try a pretend pizza, ham-
burger or grilled cheese sand-
wich.
The One World Diner
opened the first week of
January at the Children's
Museum of the Highlands.
The pretend dining experience
offers kids and parents a les-
son in ethnic diversity.
Authentic looking cos-
tumes, a variety of cultural
food and a menu explaining
each item adds an internation-
al flair to every kids' imagina-
tion.
Museum director Linda
Crowder said she has counted
as many as 17 kids playing in
the diner together at one time.
"They were taking orders,
serving food, working the
cash register and really mak-
ing connections," she said.


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Sebring residents Sidney Albritlon, 3. and his mom Rflee Pemble share a pizza Saturday morning
at the One World Diner in the Children's Museum of the Highlands in Sebring.


Crowder has toyed with the
diner idea for about eight
years and was finally able to
afford to do it last year.
It took about six months to
get it here," she said. This was
the first time the museum con-
tracted with a designer and
Crowder was especially
pleased with the outcome of
the project.
"We are still waiting for the
pizza oven," Crowder said.
Explaining that it was not
included in the original plans,
but that she made a special


request because she wanted
kids to be able to work on
fractions.
The Sebring Chamber of
Commerce hosted its monthly
mixer at ,the museum
SThursday evening and accord-
ing to Crowder it was a huge
success. "We had over a 100
adults in here having a good
time."
Crowder explained that the
chamber's executive director
Dan Andrews proudly showed
off some of the volunteer
work he had done at the muse-


um back in high school when
he was working on his Eagle
Scout badge.
Andrews helped build and
paint the museum's fire sta-
tion, which is modeled after
the downtown Sebring Fire
Department.
The Children's Museum of
the Highlands is open from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday
through Saturday, except on
Thursday when the museum is
open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. For

Bringing back Boys & Girls Club


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK City council mem-
bers, representatives from the Boys &
Girls Club and private citizens began the
work of untangling the snarl that has
slowed a new club opening here in town.
A start-up program serving 55 chil-
dren, using space at the Housing
Authority, was temporarily shut down
late last May due to lack of funds.
In any case, club representatives say,
that space was too small and had been
from the beginning.
"We were only supposed to be there for
a few weeks, it became years," Forrest
Hilton said. He is president of the board
for the Boys & Girls Club of Highlands
County.
Hilton hopes to be able a open a new
club in a permanent and larger setting -


Volunteers

needed for

homeless


count

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
AVON PARK Almost
1,200 homeless people were
identified in Highlands County
last year.
Of those, 26 percent were
younger than 18 years of age,
said Richard Reinhardt, execu-
tive director of the Highlands
County Coalition for the
Homeless.
"Homelessness has a lot of
different faces," he said,
explaining fewer are expected
this year because people dis-
placed by the hurricanes of
2004-2005 are finding homes.
The hardest to help, he said,
are those who are chronic -
they choose to live on the street
and aren't easily mainstreamed.
Reinhardt said the homeless
are also veterans suffering from
post-traumatic stress disorder,
physical disabilities or both,
civilians with mental illnesses

perhaps using part of the Hopewell
School for the Arts' campus, or a local
church's new outreach facility. Another
possible 'itc, the Lion's Club ,on State
Road 64, was rejected because it was too
far out of the way.
Even though emotions sometimes ran
high, no one at the public meeting
Thursday night disputed the success of
the Boys & Girls Club organization.
Everyone there supported the idea of a
club to help children, especially for those:
children most at risk.
The confusion and disagreements
came from how such a club should be
funded. Some speakers insisted the club
should pay for itself, some insisted the
city should guarantee the funding, most
fell somewhere in between.
At a bare minimum, Walt Hall said, it
takes about $100,000 annually to operate


a club. That is down to the bones, no
frills, working with about 80 children.
Hall is executive director of the Boys &
Girls Club oi,.iniziationi serving eastern
Polk County. He is in Highlands County
as a volunteer, to help the Highlands
County clubs get back on track.
Typically, he explained, a club is sup-
ported by a combination of grants and
raised money.
The challenge arises, he said, because
the clubs are structured to help raise chil-
dren not money. Instead the clubs rely on
their boards of directors for that.
But there is no board of directors for
the Boys & Girls Club in Highlands
County yet, or at least not one up and run-
ning.
Hilton said an ideal board would be
made up of between 12 to 20 people, each

VENUS. Three teens who
allegedly attacked a guard with
bats will stand trial as adults for
attempted murder, according to a
Glades County Sheriff's detective.
Two of the suspects Jesus A.
Duran, 15, and Edward Russo
Woodruff, 14, were arrested
Jan. 9 in Homestead, Det. Sgt.
Terence Deese said Friday.
The third, Andrew James
Helderman, 16, was arrested
around 1 a.m. Friday by Metro-
Dade Police Department.
"It was their last chance,"
Ginger Waters, Last Chance
Ranch spokeswoman, said Friday,
explaining that the boys will not
return to the Venus ranch.
The teenagers allegedly lured a
guard into a bathroom about 2
a.m. Dec. 31, attacked him, threw
him into a mattress cover then
locked him in a closet.
They found shift supervisor
Winston Leroy Harvey and beat
him with aluminum baseball bats,
Deese said.
Originally, they were being
sought for escape, grand theft
auto, felony criminal mischief and
aggravated assault.
But, after discussions with
Glades Assistant State Attorney
Dennis Wallace, counts of robbery
and attempted murder will be
added, Deese said.
"They left him for dead," he
said, explaining that Harvey suf-
fered a broken arm and several
broken ribs.
And, they took Harvey's wallet,
which had about $500 in it.
With the bats in hand, the
teenagers destroyed computers
and telephones, Deese said,
explaining the mischief count.
"Their intent there was that
would have bought enough time to
get away," Deese said. "There was
a guard they didn't find who heard
the noise and found (Harvey) in

Help here for


county's homeless


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Dressed for success, homeless shelter resident Sandra Cascio is
rebuilding her life one part-time shift at a time, and with the help of
Avon Park's newly established Universal Star Transition Shelter.


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
AVON PARK Sandra
Cascio fell on hard times.
She quit taking her bipolar
medication. Her landlord sold
the mobile home in which she
and her handicapped adult son
lived. She didn't have enough
money. She was arrested.
Sandra Cascio is homeless.
"I came here with just the
clothes on my back," Cascio
said, sitting on a couch in the
Universal Star Transition
Shelter in Avon Park.
Wearing a white blouse over
which she wore a blue blazer, a
black skirt that fell well-below
her knees with matching black
pumps, Cascio was dressed for
success.
She didn't look, talk or act
homeless. That is, if the home-
less have a distinct appearance,
lingo or demeanor.
In 20 minutes, she would
catch a ride to Big Lots in Avon
Park, where she landed a tem-
porary, part-time cashier's posi-
tion thanks to the help of Rosa
Negron, owner-operator of
Universal Star.


"I didn't know what was
going to happen to me," Cascio
said, explaining that her 28-
year-old son Josh who was
riding his bicycle 21 years ago
when a car hit him was
immediately placed into an
assisted living facility paid for
by his Social Security
Insurance.
Cascio was homeless for
about a month, not including
some nights at the Highlands
County Detention Center, an
experience she didn't want to
discuss.
She was arrested Sept. 11, for
trespassing at a Sebring banks
according to court documents
obtained by the News-Sun. Her
account was flagged that she
had been warned by a Sebring
police officer three days earlier
that the business didn't want
her on their property.
By the end of November, she
was homeless, she said.
"I'm bipolar," Cascio said. "I
went off my medication and
that didn't help."
But, what did help Cascio

Sport Aviation Expo 'very successful,' organizer says


New board member
sworn in at meeting
By MATT MURPHY
vNews-Sun
SEBRING For the third
year in a row, the Sebring
Airport's Sport Aviation Expo
was a major success.
Event organizer Robert
Wood gave a positive report on
last weekend's expo to the
Sebring Airport Authority at its
Thursday meeting.
The expo was "a very suc-
cessful and safe event," Wood
said. "Our event has become
known as the Light Sport event
in the country."
Attendance at the expo was
up over 30 percent from last
year, Wood said, and attendance
has steadily increased in each of
the expo's three years.
Air enthusiasts flew in from
all over the country, and the air-
port set what it believes is an air
traffic record. The airport had
1,100 takeoffs and landings in
one day during the event, not
including the aircraft involved
in the expo itself.
The expo featured more than


150 craft on display, Wood said,
with people coming from as far
away as Washington, Texas,
California, Michigan and even
Australia. Flight demonstra-
tions were given to more than
650 people, Wood said.
Among the planes on display
were at least five new designs,
including Cessna's new Light
Sport craft. Cessna brought the
plane to Sebring to gauge opin-
ions of the public at the event.
Although the plane had been
exhibited at the Light Sport
event in Oshkosh, Wis., the
Sebring expo was the first time
the public was able to see the
new plane in the air.
The Aviation Expo was also
very beneficial for the airport,
Executive Director Mike
Willingham said. The event has
lured aviation companies to the
airport's industrial park in the
past, and Willingham said he
had already gotten some feelers
from this year's event.
"Apparently, a few business-
es have expressed interest,"
Willingham said. "We have a
very serious lead from an
Italian aircraft manufacturer."


MATT MURPHY/News-Sun
Sebring Regional Airport Manager Peggy Whiteleather presents an
Airlok throttle lock to hangar tenant and Sport Aviation Expo
organizer Robert Wood in front of a Cirrus SR20 aircraft. The air-
port presented the locks to each of its tenants. When in place, the
locks prevent theft by holding the throttle in place and preventing it
from going forward.


Wood said the interest from
aviation businesses is a very
positive development for the
airport.
"We're getting some good
responses," Wood said. "That's
fb


what it's all about."
Next year's Aviation Expo is
currently scheduled for Jan. 17-
20,2008.
Also at Thursday's Sebring
Airport Authority meeting:


The board swore in Mark
L. Andrews as its new member.
The swearing-in follows a long
process to fill the seat of Wood,
who left to concentrate on the
Aviation Expo.
Ida Jackson, wife of county
commissioner Andrew Jackson,
was originally chosen by the
Sebring City Council to fill the
seat. However, her appointment
led to legal questions about pos-
sible conflicts of interest with
her husband.
Jackson's seat on the airport
board was not the issue, but it
was determined that her pres-
ence on the airport's
Community Redevelopment
Agency Commission, approved
by the board of county commis-
sioners, could have caused con-
flicts of interest.
The CRA board is composed
of the same members as the air-
port board, but the membership
of the two committees are
approved by different govern-
mental bodies the airport
board by the Sebring City
Council, and the CRA board by
the board of county commis-
sioners. The airport authority


and CRA board meet on the
same day.
Andrews was selected by the
Sebring City Council at its
Tuesday meeting to fill the
vacancy on the airport board.
He will be sworn into the CRA
board at next month's meeting
if approved by the board of
county commissioners.
Willingham informed the
board that the T-hangar and
commercial hanger projects are
nearing completion.
The construction of the four
T-hangar buildings is finished,
and asphalt paving of the taxi
lanes in the complex is nearing
completion as well. Willingham
expects the work on the T-hang-
ers to be completed in late
February.
The commercial hangar
building has also been built, and
the internal finishing of the
buildings is completed as well.
A parking lot is under construc-
tion adjacent to the facility and
water, sewer and electrical lines
have not been hooked up yet
either. Willingham says the
commercial hangar should be
ready for occupancy in March.


Town businesses seeing



increase in sanitation fees


By MATT MURPHY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID
Businesses using the town's
garbage pickup service are
beginning to feel the effects of a
sharp increase in sanitation
fees.
Public Works Director Jim
Fulton said the increase was
necessary to keep up with rising
landfill prices. The increase
applies only to commercial cus-
tomers; it does not affect resi-
dents of Lake Placid.
Fulton acknowledged that
the change is substantial.
However, the fees were "quite
low" before, he said, and the
new totals are still lower than
Sebring and Avon Park.
"We looked at what we had
been charging against what
Sebring and Avon Park did,"
Fulton said," and we modified
our fees. We just want to be
competitive with everybody
else. We're not here to take
advantage of customers. The
problem is, we have to go so far
to the dump now, and landfill
fees go up and up."
The town of Lake Placid got
fully involved with Dumpsters
in 2002, Fulton said. Before the
town decided to get involved,
Dumpster service was fran-
chised.
"We put Dumpsters in to
service town customers,"
Fulton said. He said the town
Dumpster service is "quite a bit
cheaper" than what the fran-
chise was charging at the time.
When the town initially set
the sanitation fees, Fulton said,
the numbers were just a "first



CLARIFICATION

In the Friday News-Sun
story, 'I have heard enough,'
the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office retrieved about 1/2 mil-
lion photographs. Of those 15
were "thumbnails" images of
"adult females in various stages
of undress."
Also, members of the
Friends of the Library, some of
whom were in attendance
Wednesday, are of all ages.
The News-Sun is happy to
set the record straight.


shot. We wanted to work with it
to see what would happen."
Fulton said when he was
looking at changing the sanita-
tion fee ordinance, he had to
"toughen it up." To do that, he
said, he compared the fees to
what Sebring and Avon Park
charge, and he also looked at
fees for the county.
The rates for garbage pickup
is usually done by formula, tak-
ing into account cubic yards
and the number of times
garbage is picked up in one
week. Back when the Dumpster
ordinance was first done, the
rates were based on a once per
week pickup.
The old rates for Lake Placid
were as follows: $29 a month
for one cubic yard, $52 for two
yards, $63 for three, $77 for
four, $105 for six, and $108 for
eight.
The new rates are $58 for one
cubic yard, $70 for two, $107
for three, $143 for four, $214
for six, and $285 for seven.
The new fees still don't com-
pare to what the county is
allowed to charge for its fran-
chised hauler, Fulton said. The
county allowances are: $92.22
for one cubic yard, $115.86 for
two, $142.50 for three, $194.13
for four, $237.50 for six, and
$371.74 for eight cubic yards.
Fulton emphasized that
although Lake Placid business-
es would see an increase in
fees, the town wasn't doing it to
make money.
"We're not trying to make
any money on this," Fulton
said. "We just try to keep our


head equal and not run way on
the red on this. This is not a for-
profit venture."
The new ordinance affects
businesses using the town sani-
tation, but it also could affect
new businesses that might
come into town.
"If a new business comes in,"
Fulton said, "they have to have
sanitation service, and they
must have it by the city or our
authorized franchiser."
The town's authorized fran-
chiser is Reliable Sanitation,
which is the last company
standing in a series of buyouts.
The town's original franchiser
was Syndicated Services, which
was then sold to Browning-
Ferris Industries and later
Florida Recycling. Reliable
Sanitation bought out Florida
Recycling in 2004.

Sebring council considering ban on buildings with metal exteriors


Prefabricated,
modular
buildings would
also be banned
By MATT MURPHY
News-Sun
SEBRING Buildings with
metal exteriors would be a thing
of the past in Sebring if a city
ordinance introduced at
Tuesday city council meeting

County under

one-day water

restrictions
Special to the News-Sun
Highlands County is one of
11 counties whose rainfall
deficits are labeled critically
abnormal. As a result, water
restrictions are in force in
Highlands County.
The Highlands County
Board of County
Commissioners adopted
Ordinance 00-01-08 on Jan. 23,
2001, stating that "The
Southwest Florida Water
Management District and
South Florida Water
Management District have
jurisdiction over Highlands
County. State law requires city
and county officials to assist
the water management districts
in the enforcement of their
rules."
Highlands County utilizes
the rules of the strictest water
district during the watering
restriction period. In this case,
the strictest rules are from the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District and are as
follows and currently apply to
all of Highlands County:
If your house number ends
in: 0 or 1, you may water on:
Monday.
If your house number ends
in: 2 or 3, you may water on:
Tuesday.
If your house number ends
in: 4 or 5, you may water on:
Wednesday.
If your house number ends
in: 6 or 7, you may water on:
Thursday.
If your house number ends
in: 8 or 9, you may water on:
Friday.
Properties under two acres
can water only during the hours
between 6 p.m. and 8 a.m.
Properties over two acres can
water only between the hours
of 4 p.m. and 10 a.m.
These rules apply to all resi-
dences within the unincorporat-
ed Highlands County using the
water resources, whether from
public or privately owned
water utility systems, private
wells, or private connections
with surface water bodies.

District offers
online permitting
Special to the News-Sun
Getting a well construction
permit now can be just a point
and click away thanks to a new
online application process
developed by the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District.
The district issues more than
20,000 well construction per-
mit applications each year.
"This application revolution-
izes the way that we conduct
business by reducing paper-
work, streamlining our busi-
ness processes and placing
more power in the hands of the
individual computer users,"
said Terry Redman, informa-
tion resources director for the
district.
The new online process
allows applicants to identify
well sites by simply pointing
on a map. The system also is
linked to the property apprais-
er's Web site, where available,
to ensure the most accurate
data when submitting an appli-
cation.
District staff and counties
with delegated authority from
the district will now review and
issue the well construction per-


mit applications online.
The new online well con-
struction permit application
process is the first new Water
Management Information
System. The anticipated com-
pletion date of the entire proj-
ect is March 2010.

passes.
The ordinance would require
the exterior of metal buildings
to be covered with stucco, brick
or a similar material. The meas-
ure would not apply to proper-
ties in C-2 or I-1 zoning, or
public schools.

After discussion at Tuesday's
nieeting, the city council
amended the motion to exempt
storage sheds and similar struc-
tures. Any storage shed measur-
ing 200 square feet or less


would not fall under the ordi-
nance as it now stands, although
the Planning and Zoning Board
could modify that number.
The measure also dictates
that plans for prefabricated or
modular buildings would have
to be approved by the Planning
and Zoning Board before con-
struction were to begin.
To gain Planning and Zoning
Board approval under the pro-
posed measure, a prefabricated
or modular buildings building:


Cannot be "visually intru-
sive."
Would have to be "consis-
tent with the character of the
neighborhood and the commu-
nity."
Would have to be "appro-
priate and harmonious with the
surrounding neighborhood
structures."
The city council instructed
City Attorney Michael Swaine
to prepare the ordinance several
months ago, after council mem-
bers received several com-


plaints about unsightly metal
buildings. The idea has been
under discussion for at least
three years, Council President
Jeff Carlson said.
Council stressed that the
ordinance would not ban metal
buildings.
"We're just trying to say it
has to look like a house,"
Carlson said.
Councilwoman : Margie
Rhoades echoed Carlson's
point. "The ordinance doesn't


eliminate metal buildings," she
said. "We're trying to increase
the value of property."
The ordinance was passed on
first reading at Tuesday's coun-
cil meeting. It has been referred
to the Planning and Zoning
Board and Community
Redevelopment Agency to
review and comment at their
upcoming meetings.
The second and final reading
for the ordinance will be at the
city council's Feb. 20 meeting.

KEVIN J. SHUTT'/Ncws-Sun
K-9 Officer Greico watches as Avon Park Police Department Sgt. Jason Lister looks over a KTM motor-
cycle that hit a Pontiac Grand Prix, driven by Frank Lyle Shearer, who was delivering pizza at the time.
The motorcyclist, Andrew Brown, was in critical condition Saturday at Tampa General Hospital.

Marketing strategies
Marketing is an extremely broad
topic, and it is hard to do it justice in a
short column. To make this more
meaningful (for you) and easier (for
me), this column will focus on the
small business that cannot afford a
marketing staff or a lot of outside
resources.
First, recognize that you are not all
things to all people. Not even Wal- BUS
Mart can do that. For you, this means U
giving a lot of thought to the target you ADVI
are trying to hit. Decide how what you
are doing fits in to customers' lives. Forrest
Think it through in detail. It is not
enough just to offer ice cream. Exactly
who will or will not be coming through
your door, and why? Is it the best ice cream at a
premium price, or a great value for good ice
cream? Do people come and linger or get the ice
cream and leave? Are there plenty of party items?
Will you take special orders? Do you want to pro-
mote to clubs and teams who will come in large
groups? The list is endless and no one is in a bet-
ter position to decide what should be on the list
than you.
Second, mind your image. Every business has
an image, or an identity. Make sure yours is con-
sistent and that it fits your target market.
Customers will buy from a business they like.
Everything a customer or potential customer sees
or experiences conveys a message about you. Are
you fast? Do you underpromise and overdeliver
or the other way around? Do you solve customer
problems or put up defenses when there is a prob-
Icm? Do you say, "thank you?" Review it all,
from the appearance of your place of business,
the Yellow Pages ad, your signs, your voicemail
greeting, the way employees dress and greet cus-


for small business
tomers all of this and a lot more.
Third, advertise and promote. You
must have a presence in the market-
place and it must be affordable. Use
advertising and promotion to reinforce
your image idea or to promote some-
thing specific. Never make a big com-
mitment looking for short-term results.
If it doesn't work (and it likely won't)
your money is gone and you will be
NESS depressed.
ISOR John Wanamaker, the Philadelphia
merchant and innovator, famously
tSteele said, "Half the money I spend on
advertising is wasted;-the trouble is, I
don't know which half." While this is
true, no one wants to waste money.
Advertising and promotion should be aimed at
the targeted (demographic, geographic, and other
segments) market and be consistent with the
overall image. Have the discipline to say "No" to
propositions that don't line up with your target.
Last and most important, force yourself out of
your comfort zone. Never accept the idea that this
is the way you've always done it. Be willing to
make (small) mistakes, for this is where impor-
tant learning takes place. Talk to people. Look for
people with a different view from yours and lis-
ten. Considering different ideas doesn't mean
you are wishy-washy. It is critically important to
seek out other views and to check yourself for
objectivity. Of course, you will hear a lot of hare-
brained thoughts along with some real nuggets of
insight. Hopefully you will know the difference.

AVON PARK An Avon
Park man was in critical condi-
tion Saturday after he allegedly
smashed his motorcycle into a
pizza delivery car.
Andrew Actavous Brown,
28, was flown to Tampa
General Hospital at 6:50 p.m.
Friday from the Winn-Dixie
parking lot.
"I heard a loud bang then a
heavy bang," said pizza deliv-
eryman and Avon Park resident
Frank Lyle Shearer, as he
watched officers record a
plethora of measurements. "I
looked around and saw the guy
in the road."
Shearer moved back to Avon
Park from Lakeland. He was
delivering for Hungry Howie's
last night when Brown alleged-


ly crashed into the passenger
side door of his 1999 Pontiac
Grand Prix at the intersection of
South Waldron Avenue and
W.L. Kirkland Street.
Shearer said he could hear a
motorcycle but couldn't see one
when he stopped at the stop
sign, westbound on W.L.
Kirkland. He said he pulled
through the intersection when
the collision occurred. He
pulled through the intersection
so he wouldn't block traffic,
and then called 911 from a
house on the corner.
He spent the next few hours
watching the investigation from
his vehicle inside the yellow
tape that marked the scene. His
brother Jason Shearer showed
up, and eventually the Avon
Park police released him, but
not his vehicle.


Roadhouse Grill open


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Alana Walker and her son Coby, 3, settle in for lunch at the
brand new Roadhouse Grill located on the southern out parcel
of Lakeshore Mall in Sebring. The restaurant specializes in
steaks, prime rib and some barbecue. Prices range from $6.99 to
$23.99. The restaurant hosted a invitation only grand opening
party Monday to benefit Ridge Area Arc. It officially opened its
doors to the public Tuesday.


Avon Park Police Sgt. Jason
Lister investigated the accident,
lifting up an orange KTM off-
road dirt bike and recording its
vehicle identification number.
The motorcycle didn't appear to
have lights of any kind on it.
Brown wasn't wearing a hel-
met, Shearer said.
The crash occurred two
houses from Brown's residence.
neighbors said.
Shearer was visibly shook up
by, what he said was, his first
vehicle accident.
"I'm worried about the other
guy more than I am myself," he
said. "If there's anything I can
do for the family. I would like
to know."
Lister said Saturday morning
his investigation continues and
no charges have been filed.
Anyone who may have wit-
nessed this traffic crash or has
information concerning .it is
asked to contact Lister at 453-
6622.

Sebring High School


adds Interact to


choices for students


By TREY CHRISTY
News-Sun
SEBRING Students at
Sebring High School are about
to have an additional extracur-
ricular choice thanks to the
addition of a new club.
Interact, a service club spon-
sored by Rotary International,
is holding an organizational
meeting at the Smith Center at
SHS at 3:15 p.m. Monday after
school.
Rotary's sponsor of the
Interact Club, Gil Riordan, said
the organizational meeting will
help set the tone for the rest of
the year, where interested stu-
dents will plan times and dates
of the bimonthly meetings.
"The requirement for mem-
bership is students at the high
school between the ages of 14
and 18, of good moral character
and leadership potential,"
Riordan said. "The club will be
driven by the membership."
The new Interact club will be
sponsored by the Sebring Noon
Rotary branch.
There was an Interact club at
Sebring High until the 1990s
when the club sponsor moved.
Sebring Noon Rotary
President Bill Benton wanted to
get the program started back up
again at the high school,
Riordan said.
The club will participate in
some of the Sebring Noon


Rotary projects, such as the
spaghetti dinner and road
cleanup, but will have its own
independent service projects
and fund-raisers as well. -
Through service activities,
Interactors learn the importance
of: developing leadership skills
and personal integrity; demon-
strating helpfulness and respect
for others; and advancing inter-
national understanding and
goodwill.
The decision for Sebring
Noon Rotary to restart the club
was made before the start of
this school year. With faculty
members Dr. Rosemary Webb
and Susan Whitehead as spon-
sors, the club is official.

Making

the grade
Avon Park Middle School
eighth-grade students earned
themselves a day of play Friday
afternoon at Donaldson Park.
About 90 students walked from
the school to the park for a spe-
cial barbecue to celebrate good
grades.
Only students without Ds or
Fs for the past nine weeks were
eligible to attend.
Eighth-grade teachers agreed
that the event was intended to
help motivate, improve aca-
demics, encourage student
accountability and ultimately
raise the level of expectations.


Language Arts teacher Deborah Summers helps her students win a tug-o-war competition.

Tales of a Crate Mill Quarters


* Chapter One
By ROLAND LEE
(Editor's note: This is the
first of a slightly edited series
from Roland Lee about his
Avon Park childhood during the
1920s and 1930s.)
I'd like to share with you
something that is both personal
history and community history.
It's my story of growing up in
the Crate Mill Quarters of Avon
Park.
If you don't know, it was
called the Crate Mill Quarters
(south of the town itself)
because that's where the crate
mill factories were located, pro-
ducing crates and boxes, at first'
for citrus and later for other
vegetables and fruit. One such
factory is still in operation in
Avon Park, the Elberta Crate
and Box Co.
Shortly after I was born in
Miami on Dec. 2, 1925, my
family moved to Avon Park,
where they had lived before my
birth. We moved to the Crate
Mill Quarters because that's
where my father (Roland H.
Lee, born in Madison County,
in 1897) worked as a circular
saw operator, cutting the timber
into smaller pieces.
I was 2 years old when my
mother died in 1928. My broth-
er John was three months; my
brother Ralph, 4 years old; and
my sister Eunice, 8 years old.


LARRY LEVEY/News-Sun
Roland Lee, board member of the Historical Society of Avon Park
and a volunteer in the research room at the Depot Museum, has
written his memories of growing up in Avon Park.


Mr. And Mrs. Morris he
was a minister of the Church of
the Brethren took my broth-
er John and raised him.


After my mother died, we
moved into a house (as I recall,
with five rooms) in the Quarters
across the street from my pater-


boyhood
nal grandparents. But it's a fig-
ure of speech when I say
"street." It was not a street, just
a dirt road. All the houses were
just plain, unpainted clapboard-
constructed homes. All the
yards were bare sand with a few
periwinkles growing in some
spots.
In those days, everyone had a
privy (outhouse) in their back
yard. My grandmother kept a
lard bucket in the corner of the
privy. This is where she collect-
ed the fat scraps from the table
and her cooking that she used to
make the lye soap. And there
was always a mail order catalog
in the privy so you could tear
out pages to use as toilet tissue.
In the back yard of many of
the houses you'd notice a
porcelain pot during the day.
This was taken to the bedroom
at night so you wouldn't have to
make a trip to the privy. The pot
was emptied in the morning,
washed out and placed in the
yard to sun during the day.
To be continued.

Roland Lee, a society board
member, serves as the
researcher in the Depot
Museum. He also heads up the
society's membership commit-
tee and the upcoming memorial
brick project.


ELAINE LEVEY/News-Sun
Now on temporary display at the Depot Museum in Avon Park is
this exhibit of early Native American tools and weapons.


It's 'way back to the

past' at Depot Museum


AVON PARK Visitors to
the Avon Park museum are in
for an archaeological treat in
the form of a display case tem-
porarily filled with tools and
weapons used by Native
Americans in carrying out their
agricultural, hunting, domestic
and war-making pursuits.
Early tools were made from
wood, bone, leather, plant fiber
- and stone. But it is only the
stone tools that have survived
the centuries. The others have
long disintegrated back to the
soil.
The collection of stone tools
is on loan from Donald Rhodes,
who winters in Sebring and
who operates his own historical
museum in Catawba Island,
Ohio. He is an active member
of the Sandusky Bay Chapter


SFCC joins forces with Depot Museum


AVON PARK In October
and November, history was
made when two honors students
from South Florida Community
College were assigned to the
Depot Museum for a "service
learning program."
This national college pro-
gram encourages students to
participate in community proj-
ects. As their handbook points
out, "The health of our democ-
racy depends on service and
community involvement."
Museum director Elaine
Levey had worked with Dr.
Charlotte Pressler, director of
the SFCC honors program, on

this partnership.
The students were Alyssa
Smith, from Avon Park, a grad-
uate of Walker Academy and a
pre-med student at SFCC; and
Dee-Von Martinez from Lake
Wales, current editor of the col-
lege newspaper. (As a bonus,
Dee-Von's sister, Crystal,
although not a SFCC student,
also volunteered to help.)
The girls updated the inven-
tory of museum artifacts, phys-
ically matching each item with
the file card that identifies that
item. The update verifies that
donated items are still on dis-
play or stored in the museum.


"This is an essential task for
all museums," Levey said. "It
lets us know if any items are
missing. I've been trying to get
this done for some time."
Each student spent five hours
working in the museum.
"I hope the college assigns
more students to us," Levey
said. "They're competent, con-
scientious and eager workers.
And working in the museum
was an eye-opener for them as
they saw a lot of things from the
past they'd never seen before.
"This project is a great first-
step in our attracting young
people to our museum."

Rhodes has tried to make the
tools appear as authentic as
possible, based on documented
evidence, by fashioning wood-
en handles to several of the
implements, thus restoring their
original look.
"While these tools were
found on the shores of Lake
Erie, it's possible tools just like
these were traded for by Native
Americans living in this area,"
Rhodes said, "since the trade
route ran from Lake Erie to the
Gulf of Mexico."
The tools will be on display
until April. Museum hours are
from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday
through Friday. For information
call 453-3525. Admission is
free but donations are accepted.

of their own and the working
poor who find themselves in a
bind with the loss of a house-
hold-supporting job.
"The domino effect leads
them to homelessness,"
Reinhardt said. "It happens
more often than people want to
realize."
About 100 homeless veterans
live in the area, either full time
or passing through on a similar
timeline as snowbirds.
"They're seasonal," said
Howard Jenkins, a military vet-
eran himself and president of
the Homeless Coalition's board.
"They transition through here
and go to Miami and when it
gets hot they head back north."
Instead of recreational vehi-
cles towing compact cars or
scooters, these homeless travel
hobo style hopping on trains,
bicycling and hitchhiking.
Some homeless live in hous-
es, with other relatives.
"We have a lot of people who
live with other people," Jenkins
said. "That's a form of home-
lessness."
Notices have gone out to the
county's homeless shelters, the
battered women's home, food
pantries and other agencies that
help, informing them that the

executive director of Highlands
County Coalition for the
Homeless, who put her in touch
with Rosa Negron.
Negron and her husband
Jose provide food and trans-
portation. Cascio takes her
medication and sleeps in a safe
place.
She sees a counselor weekly.
"When you have bipolar you
have to take meds for the rest of
your life," Cascio said. "I went
off thinking I was going to be
OK. But, I wasn't. This is the
first time that I realized this
would have to be with me for
the rest of my life."
Soon, Josh will join her at
Universal Star, but until she
builds up her job skills and
secures permanent, full-time
employment, more than a year
will pass before they move into
their own home.
Rosa Negron recently
opened Universal Star, and is in
Phase I of a five-year plan that
includes life skills training,
scholarships and an assisted
living center for homeless sen-
iors.
She has three current partici-
pants/residents with a total
capacity for six. Josh Cascio
will be her fourth client Feb. 1.
"What we do right now is we
get people off of the street,"
Negron said. "We're trying to

Helderman's arrest was
unrelated to his escape from
Last Chance. Deese was noti-

ran the suspect's name and his
Glades arrest warrant came up.
Metro-Dade was holding
him for unrelated counts of car-
rying a concealed weapon, tam-
pering with evidence and
resisting arrest without vio-
lence, Deese said.
Last Chance is a Level 6

adding that municipalities usu-

pointed out that the city of
Sebring contributes $50,000 a
year toward its club, and that
cities in Polk County also help
their clubs. Hall said he hoped
that Avon Park would follow
suit, providing a portion of
daily operating costs.
But broken promises in the
past made by a former club

executive director claiming no
city money at all would be
needed for operating expenses
- and concern over a lack of
adequate funding resources, as
well as the unsettled question of
where a club would be housed,
led the council to a cautious
position, although clearly sup-
portive of a new club in theory.

asked several times for the

the city with a precise list of

TOFFIN' T

WITH TUFFLEY

Christopher Tuffley


A man to make

a difference

Every once in a while a
writer gets bitten by the need
to say something particular;
even though, sometimes, he
doesn't know quite what that
particular is.
In most cases it is wise, in
that instance, for a reader to be
wary nothing is more dan-
gerous than a wordsmith striv-
ing for pithy.
Yet here I am in that situa-
tion.
Forgive me.
It is just that events have
run together this week, as, like
so many others, I tried to
absorb the meaning of a bru-
tally sudden loss. The shooting
of Nicholas Sottile, Jan. 12,
while on duty with the Florida
Highway Patrol, has stunned
all of us here in Highlands
County.
On duty at his farewell serv-
ice, my emotions ran high, my
place as an observer was
blurred.
Later I wasn't sure how to
get back to day-to-day life. I
couldn't shake the sense of
loss.
With a world grown dark
with danger, and that chilling
touch of evil, I worried where
we were headed.
It is so easy to panic and
lose hope. I had trouble focus-
ing on writing light, by which
I mean uplifting.

NEWS-SUN + SEBRING, FLA.


Independent and proud of it


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK It isn't easy
running an independent gaso-
line service station.
Especially since the major oil
companies switched from a
service model to a convenience
store model for their retail gaso-
line outlets.
Retail sales, not service is the
object. The larger companies
have little patience for those
they cannot fit into their formu-
laic charts.
John Malinowski has been
'bucking that trend since he first
became a service station owner
a little more than 20 years ago.
He is an independent and proud
of it.
Originally from Michigan,
off and on he had worked in
retail gasoline sales since high
school. For a time he owned a
trucking business hauling pro-
duce out of south and central
Florida, but his long-term
dream was to own his own sta-
tion and be his own boss.
Having visited the area on
vacations over the years,
Malinowski jumped at the
chance to buy what was then a
Philips 66 station in Sebring, on
County Road 17, also known as
Ridgewood Drive.
At the time there were a
string of seven or eight service
stations, running from where
CR17 turned north, and going
nearly all the way to the historic
Circle.
Stiff competition, and the
shift to U.S. 27, drove many of
those stations out of business,
but over time Malinowski pre-
vailed.
He had to change brands to
do it, as first Philips 66, and the


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Frances Lanier enjoys flirting with John Malinowski when she stops by his service station for gasoline. Here he cleans her windshield to get a
better look. Lanier has lived in the area since 1948. 'I'm an old pioneer,' she said, 'a real cracker.'


Union 76 left Florida. For a
time he was affiliated with
Citgo, but cut that association
when the company wanted him
to close his bays and go the
convenience store route. That is
when he finally shifted to
Mystic.
Now he does what he wants
to do, he said. mainly when he
wants to do it'- but the cus-


tomer always comes first.
Service is the heart and soul
of Malinowski's operation.
He said 90 percent of his cus-
tomers are regulars, and he
knows 100 percent of their
names. He lives to help them.
In fact, it's the interaction
with people that makes the
business worth the work
Malinowski said., Itturns out


there are many frustrations oth-
erwise.
The underground storage
tank, for example, requires $1
million in liability insurance,
plus the tank has to inspected
annually with written reports
due. The tank itself was expen-
sive, constructed with a double
skin, one fiberglass, one steel.
Putting it lh the ground was


another headache.
Malinowski buys gasoline
through a jobber, and sets his
prices by the cost. The mark-up
is about 2 cents a gallon. If he
only sold gasoline he wouldn't
be able to stay in business he
said. It is the oil changes, tire
sales and minor repairs that
make up the bulk of his living.

MAN
Continued from 11A
And then something won-
derful happened. Something
simple, but changing.
I spent time with John
Malinowski at his business -
Ridgewood Gas & Auto
Service, 551 Ridgewood Drive,
Sebring right where Scenic
Parkway now ends. He sells
gasoline under the Mystic sign.
You wouldn't think spending
time hanging out at a gasoline
service station would be a
source of comfort or cleansing,
or even very entertaining, but it
was.
It is Malinowski who makes
the difference. He is tall, calm
and deliberate, affable and at
ease an example of what we
like to think the best of
America is.
He is a simple man in a
good sense, believing in the
power of conversation and
good neighborliness. He gets to
the point and means what he
says.
Malinowski lives to make
people happy, and to speed
them, more safely, on their
way. His service station is a
retirement dream, created once
his children were grown.
He has owned and operated
it since about 1980, but so


much time has passed he's not
exactly sure of the date.
But time doesn't mean as
much to Malinowski as it does
to others. It kind of stops at his
pumps. Walk into his office
and you're back in 1962.
"My whole philosophy of
life is that anywhere I look I
can see someone worse off
than me. It's all about attitude
they say," he said, radiating
well-being.
He sets his own pace and
priorities. He knows almost
every customer by name, and
they all know him.
"I love what I do," he said.
"I'm my own boss, in my own
space. I can make my own
rules.
"You won't see political
signs," he added, pointing to
the windows and walls. Politics
should be separate from busi-
ness, he said.
"I've never sold wine, beer,
or cigarettes," he said, adding,
"I've got enough to do without
having to keep track of them."
Instead what Malinowski
has created, or more accurately,
has preserved, is a piece of
Americana.
If you are old enough to
remember the "ding ding" the
rubber hose thing-a-ma-bobby
made as cars drove over it, or
have ever ridden your bike to
get free air in the tires, or


brought your car to a guy you
knew by name for a oil change,
and bought a cold soda while
you waited, then you might
remember back to a time when
gas stations offered full serv-
ice.
Well, Malinowski offers that
kind of service now. He pumps
gas, checks on tires and fluids,
and will clean your windshield,
all while engaging you in con-
versation.
It is amazing how calming,
such a seemingly ordinary rou-
tine can be. I could feel all my
tension easing, and the cus-
tomers all took the time to
smile.
Now I didn't get to do much
work. That's because
Malinowski couldn't help beat-
ing me to every car.
But he truly enjoys his cus-
tomers, and knows what each
usually needs
"Hello Gail," he said to Gail
Strome as he begins to pump
fuel without asking. He has
been pumping her gas for
about 19 years.
"He's great," she said laugh-
ing. "He's a special guy."
"There's a better word for
that," he replies, "a friend."
Later, on the phone to the
man he bought the business
from years ago, he said,
"Eighty-five isn't old. Heck I
know trees older than that."


Malinowski is in his early
60s himself, but looks about 10
years younger.
He has had his share of tor-
ment and grief, including back
and open heart surgery.
But his wife Jan still loves
him, and their daughter, Cheryl
McGovern teaches at Avon
Park High School, and their
two sons are in union trades,
working in Illinois, so life is
sweet. He enjoys getting up in
the morning, and coming into
work.
And that's what got my
thinking back on track, after
crashing early in the week.
It was realizing that Sottile
lived the same sort of life
Malinowski is two men liv-
ing life up to the minute and
fully; both open hearted and
generous. It is how Sottile
made a difference and
Malinowski still does.
Americans like them will be
remembered.
With Americans like them,
we'll be all right.

Malinowski checks on the seal of a new second-hand tire he mount-
ed for Andra Motsinger, who is holding her daughter Jade Brave
who is two. Tire sales and repairs are bread and butter for
Malinowski.


PROUD
Continued from 11A

Malinowski described the
breakdown in gasoline prices.
There is a federal excise tax,
he said, a federal oil spill tax, a
Florida excise tax, a local
Highlands County tax, a Florida
inspection fee, a Florida pollu-
tion gas tax and a LUST tax.
The LUST tax, is sadly, not
notorious, but an acronym


which stands for, Leaking
Underground Storage Tanks
tax.
What all that means,
Malinowski said, is that one
gallon of gasoline costs 180.58
cents coming out of the refin-
ery, and ends up costing 234.9
cents at the pump, because of
the taxes.
Through it all, he keeps his
sense of humor. "I tell every-
body if you need free gas, come
by on Sunday," he said.

RSVP asks for
Library volunteers
The Retired and Senior
Volunteer Program, sponsored
by Nu-Hope Elder Care
Services Inc., works with a
number of community partners.
Highlands County's libraries
are among the group of RSVP
volunteer stations. Volunteers
perform a variety of functions
that help the libraries bring
services to residents of the
county.
Currently, the three libraries
which are in Avon Park, Lake
Placid and Sebring are in need
of a number of volunteers to fill
jobs. Primarily, volunteers are
needed to" organize and main-
tain the libraries.
Each library has its own
forms for its volunteers and
will train them. Depending
upon the library, a volunteer
may be asked to shelve books,
prepare items for circulation,
locate items, clean, mend,
rewind tapes, empty book
drops, etc.
If anyone is at least 55 years
old and has some spare time,
consider volunteering at one of
the libraries through the RSVP
program. Contact Kathleen
Mills Montgomery at 382-
2134, ext. 315 or Nancy Kim
Graves at ext. 314 to sign up.

EDITORIALS/OPI ONIONS


There is truth in the adage 'boys will be boys'


1 am the mother of two boys.
IGGINTON JR. ROMONA WASHINGTON So I can say with some experi-
isher Executive Editor ence behind me that boys can
and will do things that will
SHALL SCOTT DRESSED drive adults nuts.
Editor Sports Editor John and James, even at 20
and almost 18, still can drive
me nuts. While John was home
for Christmas break, he and his
Brother got into a wrestling
match in the den. During the
struggle, they tipped over a
Tiffany lamp on a side table.
Thanks to quick reflexes, they
caught it before the crystal
shade shattered. However, they
Sdid not save one of the light
bulbs, which broke. The com-
S- panion bulb burnt out in sympa-
.. thy and I haven't got replace-
ments yet.
S- So when I heard about the
-, alleged antics of Matthew
._ Burks, 16, and Zachary Walden,
S- 13, in Ohio, I was not surprised.
S.. The behavior screamed "boy"
to me.
The two boys were staying at
-- Hocking Valley Community
S. Residential Center in
-- Nelsonville, Ohio. It is a juve-
-. nile detention center that pro-
vides an alternative to a stint at


a state detention
center for juvenile LAURA
felony convictions.
This tells you that Laura
the boys are not
exactly model chil-
dren.
The residential center
worked on what the article I
read referred to as the "honor
system." That meant the kids
were not locked in.
So late one Monday, the two
boys in question simply walked
out of the detention center. So
much for honor.
Where did our two wayward
lads go? They headed for a
train. Specifically, the Hocking
Valley Scenic Railway locomo-
tive. Early Tuesday morning
they broke into the building that
housed the engine.
Burks had some experience
with trains. So he managed to
get the engine started. The two
boys then decided to go for a
ride.
The ride went on for about 12
miles to a town called Logan.
They were not sneaky about it.
They blew the train whistle on
the way, waking people up.


'S
a


;LOO It did not help
LOOK them that the
tracks the engine
Ware was on ran right by
the police station.
The Hocking
College police also noticed the
engine running down the tracks.
It got their attention because a)
it had no cars behind it (it nor-
mally is used to cart tourists
around) and b) it usually only
ran on weekends.
The two boys eventually
stopped at a grocery store,
where Athens county sheriff's
deputies ended their bid for
freedom.
My next story is about a 49-
year-old boy in Illinois. OK,
perhaps some would challenge
my assertion. George Hood is a
Drug Enforcement Administra-
tion supervisor and 23-year fed-
eral law enforcement veteran.
He may also be in the Guinness
Book of World Records.
What record did he try to
break? The record for riding a
stationary bike.
Now, the previous record for
riding a stationary bike was 82
hours, set by another guy.


Hood rode in an effort to raise
funds for his state chapter of
COPS, an organization that
assists the families of slain
police officers.
He started on 4 a.m. at a Burr
Ridge sports club. Eighty-five
hours later he climbed off the
bike, happy and tired. He man-
aged to raise $25,000 for COPS
$5,000 more than his goal.
Paramedics took Hood to the
hospital as a precaution, for
observation and fluids. He'd
managed to get a little sleep in
the five-minute breaks he was
* permitted per Guinness rules.
It will be several weeks
before Guinness officials can
certify the record. Something
tells me Hood had a grand time
anyway.
Raising money for a great
cause is something commend-
able for any boy to do, no mat-
ter what his age. Or any girl, for
that matter.

dent. She can be contacted by

Highlands County suffered a tremendous loss last week. The
newssun.com forums posted since residents learned of Florida
Highway Patrol Sgt. Nicholas "Nicky" Sottile's Jan. 12 shooting
death are a testament to his life and show the pain felt by those who
knew and loved him. But it's OK to move forward.
From everything we've heard here at the News-Sun, Sottile
would have wanted that.
Here's what the community is saying about his death:

"May God have mercy on Altersbergers' soul, because very few
in highlands county or anywhere else will."
poolguy73

"I used to work with Sgt. Sottile when I was a Police Sergeant
with the Lake Placid Police Department in the early to mid 1990's.
Sgt Sottile was one of the most Honest, Fair, and Trustworthy
Officers that I have ever known in my Law Enforcement Career."
Sgt Karl Furman

"I was hoping the police would find the shooter and make Swiss
cheese out of him like, the guy up in Polk County a few months
back."
Walt

"This incident occurred very close to our home and we have
been listening to the helicopters and cars all night, they are still
going this morning."
jcarnahan

"You don't even know the person you are damning. Ms
Altersburger is the kindest person I know, she has went .through
some hard times in the past just like everyone else."
YINYANGJB


"I'm glad she's turning her life around. I don't know and don't
need to know "more of her story", ... Her son is an adult, he's
responsible for his actions. ... What I don't accept is a premise that
her son is facing life in prison for killing a police officer because
she was a "single mother". That statement somehow just doesn't
sit right with me."

Snow Fest gets

bigger, better
Editor:
I want to give a special note
of appreciation to the many
people who attended Snow Fest
S2007. This is our second year
for this event.
The first year we were over-
whelmed by the attendance and
the lines were very long. But
judging from the comments I
heard from people who attend-
ed this year's, it was a great
success.
This special fund-raising


event helps Big Brothers Big
Sisters provide mentoring serv-
ices to the children and teens of
Highlands and Hardee counties.
This event could not have
been possible without the great
support of community business-
es and organizations that helped
to sponsor Snow Fest.

A special word of apprecia-
tion goes to Sherriff Susan
Benton and the three deputies
who helped provide security on
Saturday. They had been up
most of the night before as part
of their official duties. They
were very helpful and support-


ive at our event.
Don Clay, the manager of
Albertson's, also deserves spe-
cial thanks. Albertson's provid-
ed refreshments for the more
than 100 volunteers who staffed
our event. On Friday night, the
sandwiches he had ready for us
were given to law enforcement
officials involved in the search
(of Florida Highway Patrol Sgt.
Nicholas Sottile's killers). So
Don got up, himself, at 5 a.m. to
make sure our volunteers had
something to eat.

There are many others we
want to thank, and we will be


recognizing them in a public
way shortly.
I just want to add my deepest
appreciation to the committee
who conceived of this idea and
who have twice now made it a
success: Stacey Donovan,
Debbi Carter, Jenny Stupinski,
Jilie Carlson, and Norma
Wynn. Thank you so much for
all your work.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop

Compromising

light at home
One of the things I love
about my kitchen is the cove
lighting. I find it wonderful-
ly bright. No matter which
direction I'm working at my
counters, my back is never
to the light and my work
space is not in the shadows.
But, it's interesting how
unaware I was that the light-
ing was becoming compro-
mised.
One of the bulbs had been
dimming until it finally gave
out. Then another followed
suit. Busily pursuing my
everyday activities, I didn't
notice that the usual bright-
ness of the kitchen had
become dull. I had adapted
to the lesser light.
Then one day my hus-
band flicked on the light and
another bulb bit the dust. It
was pretty obvious replace-
ments needed to be bought.
It alerted me to the fact
that I can be guilty of this
spiritually.
In Matthew 5: 14, NIV,
Jesus tells his disciples that
they are the light of the
world. "A city on a hill can-
not be hidden. Neither do
people light a lamp and put
it under a bowl. Instead they
put it on its stand, and it
gives light to everyone in
the house."
Jesus is talking about
being a bright light that
reflects him the Light of
the world. We aren't to
remain in the shadows and
become dull images. Rather
we're to be wonderfully
bright reflections of his
grace, mercy, love and truth.
Like the lighting in my
kitchen is meant to illumi-
nate and shed brightness in
every direction and to every
corner, we too are to do
likewise.
But, how easily we can
become distracted and not
even notice when our
brightness is dimming.
Maybe a careless word here
or there. Or not taking an
opportunity to do a kindness
when opportunity presents
itself.
Then suddenly, that "light
on the hill" is no longer
seen, but hidden. Until
something takes place in
which the Holy Spirit con-
victs us more deeply and we
realize we've compromised
the Light.
In the situation with my
kitchen, a simple trip to the
store and a handy husband
was all that was needed to
right the compromised light-
ing. In the case of our spiri-
tual condition, we need only
to turn to God for forgive-
ness.
Then, at that moment, we
resolve to put our light on
the lamp stand brightening
all the corners in the house.
And, as the verse concludes,
we will be allowing our
light to shine before others
so that they will see our
good deeds and praise our
Father in heaven.
Abiding in the Light -
staying close to our Lord
through the daily reading of
his Word and prayer will
help keep us plugged in.
Selah.

Artist Hector Nieblas


creates paintings to


'overwhelm the viewer'


By PATRICIA C. POND
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
sector
Nieblas is
the latest
in a grow-
ing number of successful
artists who has sought out the
serenity of Central Florida as a
refuge from the noise and
chaos of big cities. Since mov-
ing from Cuba to the United
States in 1980, he has lived
and worked in New York, New
Jersey and Miami.
Three years ago, he pur-
chased a home in Sebring and
began traveling back and forth
from Miami to work on it.
"I planned only to stay here
weekends and vacations, but I
realized how nice it is here,"
Nieblas said. "It is quiet, it is a
perfect place to paint, so I
moved here permanently a year
and a half ago."
Nieblas realizes that he must
continue to maintain his con-
nections to galleries in major
metropolitan markets, so he
travels frequently to Miami,
Tampa and Atlanta. The major-
ity of his works are large, dra-
matic contemporary paintings
that require a generous amount
of gallery space.
Nieblas paints in acrylics;
although he often uses colored
pencil for delicate shading.
Many of his works are three-
dimensional mixed media. He
builds boxes into the canvas to
drop sculpted elements below
the surface of the canvas. He
also layers other materials onto
painted surfaces to highlight,


contrast or give texture to his
subjects.
Nieblas learned about the-
atrical art when he was com-
missioned to do some stage
designs in New York.
"In theater, you have to
overwhelm the audience with
the impact," he said. "It is the
same with my paintings I
want impact. I want something
that is bigger than life to over-
whelm the viewer."
His paintings are in collec-
tions throughout the United
States and abroad, including
one in the Hortt permanent col-
lection of the Museum of
Contemporary Art in Fort
Lauderdale.
"I have always had an eye
for contemporary art," Nieblas
said. "Even from a young age,
I did not see art as a copy of
nature but more of an expres-
sion of what was within
myself."
Nieblas was raised in a little
town just outside of Havana.
He started drawing at the age
of 4, and admits he is compul-
sive about painting: "I eat,
sleep and live art 24 hours a
day. I cannot control it."
"When I went to school, I
would make my class notes in
the front of my notebook but I
was always drawing on the
pages from the back. When
the notebook was full, I had
only a few pages of lessons
and a book full of drawings,"
he remembered.
On the way to and from
school, young Nieblas noticed
an old man painting every day
in a nearby house. This neigh-

many, many sketches before I start to work on canvas,' Nieblas explained. In the background is a work

bor invited him in and Nieblas
told him he liked to draw. The
old man looked at the boy's
drawings and offered to teach
him.
"I later learned he was Ever
Fonseca, one of the greatest
contemporary artists in Cuba,"
Nieblas said.

Forget academics
Nieblas is classically trained
in the fine arts. After high
school in Cuba, he attended the
School of Fine Arts in
Guanabacoa, Havana in 1974-
75, with an emphasis in color.
From 1975-79, he attended the
San Alejandro Academy
School of Fine Arts in Havana,
and also the School of
Architectural Drafting.
He later studied at the Art


Hector Nieblas lays out three preliminary paintings from which he worked to create a giant triptych a
picture in three panels side by side. Titled 'Poets, Heroes and Martyrs,' the finished work is currently in
Miami.




Modern artist restores historic house


By PATRICIA C. POND
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Hector Nieblas began restoring
old houses in Miami in the early 1990s because
he wanted work that would give him independ-
ence and the freedom to paint.
On one of his frequent trips from Miami to
Tampa, he saw the sign for Sebring's historic dis-
trict and decided to take a look. As he drove
along Lakeview Drive, he spotted an old house
with a "for sale" sign.
"I called the Realtor and he told me he would
meet me there in 10 minutes," he said.
Nieblas toured the house and yard, and noticed
the detached garage, which would be perfect for
a future art studio.
"Then I crawled under the house to check for
termites. There was not a sign of them. These
early houses are built from old Florida yellow
pine and termites will not touch it. I bought the
house before I left town."
The house is a simple wood frame Craftsman
bungalow built in. 1927. The sides are covered


with stucco mixed with small pebbles to create
texture. The result is more even and subtle than
the exteriors of early cobblestone houses.
"This type of siding is very unusual," Nieblas
claimed. "There are only three or four homes in
this area that have this pebble-stucco finish."
Two early additions in the rear of the house
have exposed wood, which Nieblas has restored
to like-new condition.
"I stripped and painted every board," Nieblas
said. "I would never cover them; they deserve my
respect."
He traveled back and forth from Miami on
weekends to work on the little bungalow but soon
realized that Sebring would be the perfect place
for him to live and paint. He moved to Sebring
permanently in the summer of 2005.
Nieblas is passionate about preserving what he
calls "the patrimony" the heritage of a culture
derived from our ancestors.
"We have to save these buildings," he said.
"These old houses are the passing history of this
area."


Student League in New York
City.
'There is a need for an artist
to learn all kinds of art, but
then you have to forget about it
and start anew," Nieblas said.
He has many large figure
drawings from life rendered
with masterful skill, which he
will not exhibit because he
considers them only exercises.
"I have hundreds of these
drawings, but I only do them to
keep my hand loose," he
explained. "When I create a
painting, I make it a simple
and basic idea."
Nieblas has never forgotten
what the old artist Fonseca told
him: "Forget the academic, the
academic can cripple you."

Understanding
contemporary art
Nieblas said that he tries to
capture the essence of an expe-
rience instead of documenting
the details. He draws his ideas


from memories where he has
"stored seconds frozen in
time." He also gets a lot of.
ideas from reading.
Some of his memories are
inspired by the Mariel boatlift
when Nieblas and thousands of
other Cubans crossed the ocean
to the United States to seek
freedom from communism.
"I store images in my mind
and then they come out, like
little secrets, and I put them all
together. These images come
with color; they are formed
completely. I only have to exe-
cute them."
Large canvas works in
progress stand against every
wall in the front rooms of his
neat bungalow. Ocean back-
grounds predominate, with
symbolic features of islands,
thorns, or an isolated inner
tube rendered in three-dimen-
sional mixed media. The
human figures on these paint-

See SERENITY, page 8C


This untitled work was inspired by the exodus of Cubans to the
United States that occurred in 1980. FIve pockets set in the canvas
contain sculptured models of thorns of the la celba tree, native to
tropical regions and prolific in Cuba. Artist Hector Nieblas
explained that 'they have very big thorns, and the red pocket alone
on the blue background symbolizes communism a thorn in the
ocean.'


Hector Nieblas sits on the back steps of his 1927 Craftsman bunga-
low in Sebring. The artist, who has been restoring the house for
three years, believes 'these old houses are the passing history of this
area. We have to take care of these buildings.'

Introduce a family member to fishing


One of my favorite childhood
memories is going fishing with
my dad. Statistics show that
most lifelong anglers are first
introduced to fishing by a men-
tor, usually a family member.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission has
some tips for introducing a fam-
ily member (young or old) to
the sport of fishing.
First, be patient. This is prob-
ably the most important sugges-
tion. The goal of fishing (super-
seding even the actual catching
of fish) is to have an enjoyable
time. Tangles, snags, and lost
fish are almost inevitable so
take them in stride. Avoid nega-
tive criticism, don't raise your
voice, and concentrate on cov-
ering a few basics while having
a good time.
Keeping it simple will make
the first fishing trip for anyone
more enjoyable. Avoid a long
list of "do's and don'ts" Once


you have already covered the
basics (casting, waiting for a
bite, and reeling in) don't try to
correct every mistake (the line
is a bit to slack or the rod tip
held a bit too low). A good rule
of thumb is unless it's some-
thing that will really prevent
them from being able to catch a
fish that day, don't mention it.
Some concepts you may be able
to teach before the actual first
trip. For example, knot tying
and casting techniques can be
done in the backyard. New
anglers should also be intro-
duced to simple equipment.
Beginners will do much better
with a spincast or spinning rod
and reel than with a baitcaster.
Also, start off with live bait
instead of lures and use a bob-
ber to help detect fish strikes.
If you're freshwater fishing,
it might be better to seek the
commoner and easier to catch
sunfish instead of going after


the glamorous but
sometimes elusive
bass. Using worms
or hot dogs as live
bait will attract sun-
fish and catfish, and
even any bass that
happen to be nearby.
While waiting for a
bite you might point
out the other pleas-
ures to be had from
this sport: the fresh
air, the great out-
doors, interesting
wildlife, and good
company.
Do as much as you


NEWS FROM

THE

WATERSHED

Jennifer Abbey


can to make your student com-
fortable on that first trip.
Remember the raincoats in case
it sprinkles, bring snacks or a
bagged lunch, and don't forget
a hat, sunscreen, and bugspray.
Young beginners in particular
are very impressionable, and
fishing provides an ideal oppor-


tunity to teach
responsibility and to
reinforce the impor-
tance of good choices.
Don't introduce too
many rules at once,
but do take the time to
properly identify and
measure fish and to
address size and bag
limits (and discuss the
reasons behind them).
The first fishing trip
is also the time to
begin instilling a
respect for fellow
creatures, whether
released or kept for


the frying pan, and the environ-
ment we share with them.
Fishing is a sport in which very
often no one else is watching,
and behaviors learned here can
have incredibly far-reaching
implications for other aspects of
life.

Learning to understand a criminal mind


* This is the first in a series of
columns about the "criminal
mind."

In light of the events of this
past week, and the tremendous
grief and suffering our commu-
nities and families are going
through, I feel compelled to
write a series of articles about
the "criminal mind" as opposed
to a mind suffering from a men-
tal illness.
Regarding the suspect, I have
heard so many comments like:
"That guy is crazy" and "He's
.out of his mind" and "He must
have been high on something,
he couldn't have known what
he was doing because there was
no motive."
A person with a mental ill-
ness generally has a biochemi-
cal disorder of the brain. In
other words, most (but not all)
mental illness can be treated
(though not cured) with medi-
cine that lessens the symptoms
of the illness. It's like taking
insulin for diabetes in that it
helps the rest of the body func-
tion but it doesn't cure diabetes.


In a lot of cases behavior can
be modified with therapy. This
is generally the function of a
therapist or a psychologist who
teach the individual how to
behave in a different way that
will make the individual's life
easier- to cope with. From
Sigmund Freud in the early
1900s, to Skinner in the 1950s,
to current day theorist, there
have been a multitude of theo-
ries on how to modify behavior.
Different practitioners use dif-
ferent theories, or a combina-
tion of theories in their practice.
As a general rule, we tend to
believe that there's a reason for
everything. It is hard to accept
that something happened for no
reason, and part of the frustra-
tion I'm hearing in the com-
ments of those around me has to
do with trying to solve the mys-
tery of why this happened. Why
was Nick Sottile shot? Why
would someone do such a
thing? We're looking for a "rea-
son" and, in a nutshell, a crimi-
nal mind does not use reason, as
we know it. Most criminals
have a "psychopathic personali-


ty" which I will
explain later.
In the article,
"Inside The Criminal
Mind" by Jackie
Rothenberg, she says:
"Only the. killer
knows why he choos-
es a particular victim,
why he opts for stran-
gulation over stab-
bing, why he (deals
with a corpse) in a
certain way instead of

just dumping it.
These are choices made by peo-
ple with darker minds than
most."
Dr. Stanton E. Samenow has
spent more than 25 years work-
ing as a researcher and clinician
in prisons, clinics and halfway
houses, and has served on three
presidential task forces on
crime and drug issues. In his
book, "Inside The Criminal
Mind," he states, "How a per-
son behaves is determined
largely by how he thinks.
Criminals think differently."
He goes on to explain, "We
must understand how criminals


think and realize that
they have a funda-
mentally different
view of the world
from that of people
who are basically
responsible.
Criminals cause
crime not bad
neighborhoods, inad-
equate parents, tele-
vision, schools,
drugs, or unemploy-
ment. Crime resides


within the minds of
human beings and is not caused
by social conditions."
Samenow supports the idea
of cleaning up neighborhoods
and taking measures to remedy
intolerable social conditions,
"But we shall not expect crimi-
nals to change because of such
efforts."
He points to the idea of
behavior modification and ther-
apy or medication, and states,
"Rehabilitation as it has been
practiced cannot possibly be
effective because it is based on
a total misconception. To reha-
bilitate is to restore to a former


" .i


constructive capacity or condi-
tion. There is nothing to which
to rehabilitate a criminal. There
is no earlier condition of being
responsible to which to restore
him." I'll get into more of an
explanation of this in my next
article.
Why kill? "To reduce some-
one to a quivering, pleading
speck of humanity and snuff out
that individual's life is, for
some people, the ultimate
high," Samenow said. Leading
Criminologist James Alan Fox,
PhD, Northeastern University
stated, "Experts seem to agree,
criminals commit crimes for the
thrill they get from the act.
Most are aware of what they are
doing at the time they are doing
it and enjoy every minute of it."
According to Cult Counselor
Steven Hassan, "For some, it is
the mind control of a cult that
can lead to killings." Hassan
said he spent three years under
the mind control of a cult. "In
this situation, people have given
up their own personality and


Workshop about native plants set in Hardee


BOWLING GREEN -
Anyone interested in seeing,
feeling, and smelling Florida
native plants appropriate for
residential and commercial
landscapes is invited to a
Florida Friendly Plants
Workshop and Plant Sale from
8:30 a.m. to lp .m. Saturday,
Jan. 27, at the Hardee campus
of South Florida Community
College.
Registration will begin at 8
a.m. The workshop is free and
open to the public. Each partic-
ipant will be given a gallon-
sized native plant.
Refreshments will be provided,
as well as practical reference
documents provided by event
sponsors. There will be limited
door prizes of rain, barrels, and
coupons offered by a local nurs-
ery specializing in native plant
material.
- This event is offered in part-
nership with Charlotte Harbor
National Estuary Program, the
Peace River Basin Board of the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District, SFCC,
DeSoto County Parks and
Recreation, Pine Lily Nursery,


Deluxe Trees and Shrubs, and
many others.
Florida friendly plant land-
scapes can be beautiful, con-
serve water, protect the envi-
ronment, provide more depend-
able wildlife habitat and are
generally maintenance free,
compared to the more familiar
species commonly planted in
Florida's subtropical regions.
These plants are already adapt-
ed to Florida's poor soils, toler-
ate the state's high winds,
heavy rainfalls and dry periods,
tend to be more maintenance
free, and don't require the high
level of fertilizers, pesticides or.
water typically used to maintain
unadapted species.
Among those scheduled to
give presentations are commer-
cial growers of Florida-friendly
and native plants, who will
share their decades of personal
experience with adapted plant
material that is all around us,
yet remains a novel sight in
planned landscapes. SFCC's
Hardee campus has been plant-
ed with native plants and serves
as an ongoing demonstration
site for visitors.


William Bissett of Davenport
and owner of The Natives
Nursery will lead a discussion
on landscape design. Bissett is a
registered Florida landscape
architect who designs and con-
sults for state agencies, com-
mercial interests and homeown-
ers.
Each event partner will pro-
vide participants with take-
home material, including the
Peace River Basin Board of the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District, which
will provide handbooks and
plant lists from the district's
Florida Yards and
Neighborhoods program.
The agenda includes an
overview of the principles of
creating Florida-Friendly yards,
a discussion of how even small
neighborhood parcels con-
tribute to watershed health, and
a review of samples of Florida
friendly landscapes.
Participants will be treated to
an interactive presentation
showing how Florida-friendly
plants can be integrated into a
home landscape. Visitors will
be invited to buy additional


specimens of native plants
brought to the workshop by
operators of local native plant
nurseries, Pine Lily Nursery
and Deluxe Trees and Shrubs.
Professional growers from both
will be on hand to answer ques-
tions about the use of specific
plants participants may want to
try at home.
Local business owner
Randall Hand, owner of Sun
State Landscaping, will con-
clude the program by providing
participants with information
on available careers in land-
scaping.
For details and the scheduled
agenda for the workshop, con-
tact the SFCC Hardee campus
at (863) 773-3081 or visit the
Web site www.CHNEP.org. A
similar workshop will be
Saturday, Feb. 3, at SFCC's
DeSoto campus in Arcadia.

Let a soil test help in crop production


Hector Nieblas with one of his smaller works: 'Blue Window.' This
three-dimensional mixed media has a box built into the canvas that
shows an empty inner tube that appears to be floating just beneath
the surface of the water. Ghostly white circles float across the upper
background, 'the lost souls in the ocean,' Nieblas explained.

Nieblas said that he does not
S want anyone to try to "read"
his paintings like a book.
S Because people are from many
different cultures, they don't
see things the same way, yet
they all have things in com-
mon.
"As an artist and an immi-
grant, I had to learn about a
new culture, a new language. I
had to learn about human
interaction in this new cul-
ture," he said, adding that art is
one way to remove the barriers
between countries so all people
can work together.
His intention is to have the
viewer feel all of the emotions,
from isolation and despair to
happiness and hope.
"It is rot my intention to tell
a story, it is to give the viewer
an idea. I want viewers to see
something there that will let
them create their own story. If
I suggest the idea, you can
translate it to your own back-
ground and experience."
Nieblas believes it is impor-
tant for an artist to work with
the community. In Miami, he

The main purpose behind soil
testing is to establish the lime
and fertilizer needs of a crop
prior to planting. Lime and fer-
tilizer are essential for good
crop production.
Many vegetables and flowers
will not respond favorably
when soil pH is too high or too
low. It is suggested that you
have your soil pH test-
ed every two to three
years to minimize
plant growth problems
relating to soil pH. The
pH of your soil and a
lime requirement test
are the only accurate
means to determine if
your lawn, garden or
landscape will benefit GROI
from addition of lime.
Each of us have dif- SEA
ferent opinions about
lawns, landscape care Anna
or garden productivity
because we each have
different skills, background
training and experiences.
People from the north have
found a big difference in the
soil and soil requirements in
Florida.
In the soil testing circular
239 by Gerald Kidder and R.D
Rhue, Extension Soil special-
ists. (These circulars are avail-
able in the Master Gardener's
Office.) They state you should
ask yourself the following ques-
tions.


Can you answer these ques-
tions?
1. What is the pH of your
soil?
2. What are the fertility levels
of the principal nutrients?
3. How much and what kind
of lime does your soil need?
4. Which nutrients need to be
added to your soil as fertilizer?
5. How much fertil-
izer is need for your
Scrop and soil?
SIf you cannot answer
these questions, a soil
L test may help.
A soil test can't ...
1. Tell you which
crop to grow.
. 2. Prevent poor
WING crops caused by
drought, disease,
SON insects, too much
- water, etc.
Coley 3. Substitute for
proper for proper cul-
tural practices
4. Take place of good man-
agement.
The soil sample is most
important for a good soil test.
Here's how to take a soil
sample.
1. See your county Master
Gardeners for complete infor-
mation.
2. Divide into areas for sam-
pling. Sample separately areas
with different crop growth, soil
color, lime or fertilizer histo-
ries.


If you have a plant that you would like for one of the Master
Gardeners to write about or if you have gardening questions, call
402-6540 or visit the Master Gardeners office in the Highlands
County Agri-Civic Center Send questions to: Master Gardeners,
4509 George Blvd., Sebring, FL 33872.


3. Don't sample areas too
small to be fertilized or limed
separately. Don't sample unusu-
al areas. Avoid wet spots, feed-
ing areas, burn piles, old fence
rows, sand boils, etc.
4. Identify samples by letter
or number. Make a sketch or
records of some kind, so you
will know where each sample
came from.
There's a small fee for each
sample. You may bring them to
the Extension Office, 4509

ing from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

regarding the test or the inter-
pretation.

History Lesson
25 Years Ago
Jan. 21, 1982: The
Sebring boys basketball
team boosted its record to
11-4 with a hard-fought
win at Haines City, 66-63.
After a 20-8 advantage
after one quarter, the Blue
Streaks poured it on for a
39-22 halftime advantage.
The Hornets, however,
stung right back in the sec-
ond half, making things all
too uncomfortable for the
visitors who rode the
strength;of 11-15 free-
throws down the stretch
for the win. Frank Hollinger
scored 18 for Sebring,
while Darryl Love added
17. .

Turnovers key Devils' demise in district defeat


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK Putting the
ball in the basket is the end-all,
be-all of basketball. But to put
the ball into the net, you first
have to hold onto it, which was
the problem that plagued the
Avon Park Red Devils Friday
night.
Bad passes and good pres-
sure by the Palmetto defense
led to 19 turnovers by Avon
Park, with a majority of those
giveaways leading directly to
Tiger points on the other end of
the court for Palmetto, which


proved to be the undoing of the
Devils in a 67-57 loss.
With Palmetto's leading
scorer Joe Hills sidelined after
hurting his ankle in the first
minute of the game, the Devils
stayed with the Tigers until the
final minute, which made the
turnovers even more important.
"We definitely were there the
whole way through," Avon Park
coach Eric Zwayer said. "It was
a close game ... they had a lead,
we had a lead. I thought our
guys did a great job. They
fought the whole night and
played together. We just made a


few mistakes.
"Turnovers killed us in the
first half, especially. We turned
the ball over 10 times in the


Palmetto

57


first half, and I'd
say seven of
those were for
points. When you
take out 14 points
from that equa-
tion, it's a whole
different ball


game.
"I think that comes with not
really playing together. We've
had some guys miss a few prac-
tices here and there, but I think


we've got a commitment now.
The guys are really starting to
come together and they played
extremely hard. They fought on
every possession, they fought to
get the rebounds, it just didn't
bounce our way.
"We made those young mis-
takes. We made turnovers and
we made them for points, and
that's a no-no when it comes to
basketball; you never turn the
ball over for points."
The Devils (5-13 overall,.3-7
in District 10-4A) opened the
game with seven unanswered
points before the Tigers (13-6,


7-4) regrouped from Hills'
injury and started getting the
ball to Bryan Smith, who scored
10 points in the first quarter to
get Palmetto back into the
game.
The Devils took a 20-18 lead
into the second quarter, and led
30-25 before Palmetto closed
the first half with a 13-7 run for
a 38-37 lead at halftime.
The turnover bug continued
to haunt the Devils in the third
quarter, although it didn't hurt
them much on the scoreboard

ING STREAKS


Sebring pulls away late to win 39th straight regular-season game


BY DANIEL R. HOEHNE
Sports Writer
SEBRING The Lady Blue
Streaks kept their record unbeaten in
home action Friday night, and despite a
shaky moment or two, they won going
away in topping Braden River 78-43.
"We were a step slow in the first
half," head coach Robert Sampson
said, "and that got us into foul trouble."
That foul trouble allowed the visitors
to keep things close despite nine first-
quarter points from jun-
Sebring ior forward Whitney Lee.
78 Sophomore Hannah
7 Shoop also added five
Braden River points, but with Braden
43 River's Heather
3 Mirabella drilling a pair
of 3-pointers, the Sebring
lead was just 16-11 after one.
Two Lee 3-pointers in the second
quarter began and ended a 13-2 run for
the hosts, pushing the lead to 29-15, but
then the foul trouble really showed.
.Fortunately, the Pirates were misfir-
ing from the foul line, connecting on
just 3-of-12 shots during the quarter.
But Sebring (19-0) wasn't putting
many points on the board during that
stretch either, enabling Braden River to
remain within striking distance at the
half, 36-23.
The Pirates then made things more


Bears fans wondering

which Grossman will

take the field today
The day after the BCS
Championship Game, a Chicago radio
station ran a poll as to what was the
first sports-related thought they had
when they awoke that morning.
Seven percent said, "Is Ohio State
that bad?" Twelve percent said, "Is
Florida that good?" And more than 60
percent said, "Which Rex Grossman
will we get on Sunday?"
Such is the plight of being a Bears
fan in yet another season where the
biggest question mark is the play of the
quarterback.
As we saw in last Sunday's 26-23
overtime win over the Seattle
Seahawks, good Rex showed up for the
most part.
But that doesn't ease the minds of
the Bear faithful, as we've seen just as
much gross play out of Grossman also.
As the trivia question in last
Sunday's News-Sun showed, Sexy
Rexy had seven games during the regu-
lar season in which he had a passer rat-
ing of more than 100.
He also had five games where his
rating was less than 37.
Included among those five was a rat-
ing of 1.3, which is a number I think I
could have gotten.
Then there was the final.game of the
regular season where he posted a 0.0
passer rating, which is the same num-
ber I and everyone else watching got.
SBut for all the hand-wringing, sec-
ond-guessing and worry that has gone
on this season with Rollercoaster Rex,
it really shouldn't be all that surprising.
All one has to do is take a look back
to his college career at the University
of Florida.
In his final season as a Gator,
Grossman had five games of over 300
yards passing, passed for four touch-

interesting as they opened the second "We started out a step slow again in
half with a 12-4 run, trimming the lead the second half," Sampson noted. "But

bit of apprehension. See STREAKS, page 6D


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The second
week of Sebring Senior
Softball League scores
seemed fairly well balanced
with only one exception
happening on Thursday.
The only upset was when
the merciless Miller Central
Air ran away with a 31-17
win over the Silent


Salesman. Getting four hits
each for the Salesman were
Harley Smith, Richard
Godfrey and Jerry Johnston
(including a home run).
Marvin Knutilla belted a
homer as one of his three
hits, while Bob Flack and
Julian Vanisacker also had
three hits apiece.
Also on Thursday, Royal


Palms beat the Rebels 15-11.
The Rebels lead 9-8 until the
sixth inning before the
Palms began to rally, tying
the game in the eighth and
overcoming the Rebels in
the ninth.
Bob Weiss clubbed a
homer as well as a triple,
with Brian Pluta adding
three hits with 3 RBIs and


Bob Floodine getting three
hits.
Aluminum Discount and
Luby's final score was a
close one, being 10-9. Both
teams did well, but
Aluminum felt that good
fortune was just enough on
their side for them to come

Learning the outdoors on my own


From the time I was old
enough to get into the back
yard, my greatest interest has
always been in the outdoors. I
remember my mother chastis-
ing me for bringing all sorts of
bugs, worms and other insect
creatures into the house for her
to identify for me. When I out-
grew the bug-hunting stage
after starting school, I was
more interested in creepy
crawlies that inhabited places
other than our back yard.
By the time I was 8 or 9
years old, the nearby river
beckoned and I was happy to
spend every hour I could wad-
ing its shallows and searching
its riffles for surprising animal
life I found there. Sometimes, I
lied to my mother when she
would ask where I had been all
day. I would tell her that I had
been playing at Johnny
Tompkins' house because I
knew she would worry if she
knew I was down on the river.
Wading in the shallows and
turning over rocks, I searched
for crawdads, hellgrammites
and other strange-looking bugs
that hid there. One of the first
wonders I chanced upon was a
soft crawfish that had just shed
its hard shell. All I had ever
seen were hard-shelled and
brown in color. This one was
as soft as a sponge and was
pink. In my young mind, it was
a very mysterious thing.
One of our neighbors was
Joe Yaver, who ran a dry goods
store. I had watched him fly
fishing on several occasions
along the river. I knew Joe
would be able to enlighten me
about this strange crawdad I
had found. He very patiently
explained to me how, at a cer-
tain time, the crawdad had to

downs in one game, for three
in one and for two in six.
But he also had three games
where he connected on less
than 50 percent of his passes
and had back-to-back games in
which he threw four intercep-
tions.
The positives we've seen
from him in this season -
essentially his rookie campaign
- can be read about in the
scouting report on him before
coming into the league.
"Gets rid of ball on time
with a quick release, display-
ing good velocity on liis long
tosses ... throws the long ball
with an arc to gain distance
and is seldom late in getting
the ball to his target ... rarely
hesitates to throw long."
The negatives we've seen,
however, are also well docu-
mented in the old report.
"Needs better judgment, as
he tends to throw the ball to
dangerous spots, risking costly
interceptions ... lacks a short
touch, putting too much on his
throws ... has trouble following
through with his release when
flushed out of the pocket."
Part of me reads that and
thinks, "Jeez, he's been in the
league for three years and he
hasn't improved on these yet?"
But as I mentioned, due to
season-ending injuries his first
two years in the league,
Grossman has been busy
enough just trying to get back
on the field.
So perhaps it's not all that
surprising that the inconsisten-
cies that marked his past are
still showing up.
Which leaves Bear fans

shed its shell because its body
was growing and its shell was
not.
Joe said, "Simple, it's just
like when you outgrow your
pants." Another wildlife mys-
tery solved.
I started fishing with a piece
of a cane pole about 6 feet
long. I took some of mom's
No. 8 black thread, tied it on
and added a small hook and
sinker. With worms I dug from
the back yard, I caught sunfish,
small catfish and sometimes
even a small bass from the
river.
Watching Joe and a friend
catching largemouth bass with
a fly rod and with a casting rod
sure made me envious. By this
time, I was about 12 years old
and we were living right in the
middle years of the Great
Depression. There were no
jobs, so there was no money to
buy fishing rods or reels.
But I had to have a rod and
reel, so I started selling news-
papers on Sunday morning. I
walked about a mile and a half
to the news station to pick up
10 papers. They were heavy,
and it was about all I could do
to carry them back to our

neighborhood. I ran up and
down the streets for about two
hours selling as many as possi-
ble. All money and unsold
papers had to be returned to
the station by noon.
Sometimes, I would only
sell five and returned five. I
got two cents for each paper I
sold and rarely did I sell more
than seven or eight. Only one
time did I sell all 10, but a few
Sunday of work got me a
cheap steel rod and reel.
Empty pockets meant I had
to make mhy lure. I whittled it
into a shape like the plug that
Joe's friend often used and
painted it green and yellow.
After attaching the hooks, I
loaded the reel with mom's No.
8t black thread and tied on my
green-and-yellow masterpiece.
Down on the river bank, I
cast the plug out just past the
riffles and alongside a big con-
crete pier. Cranking the single
action reel brought the plug
slowly back barely under the
surface of the water.
I had it almost in to the rock
I was standing on when some-
thing grabbed it. A bass about
9 or 10 inches long broke the
water and disappeared. The
line went limp and the plug
sailed out on the bank, minus
the hooks.
At least my creation was a
success, but the screw I used to
hold the hooks was just too
darn small.

STREAKS
Continued from ID
once we got going, we really
got going."
The next push for the Streaks
came courtesy of Nikela
Sullivan, who connected for
three straight scores as part of
nine consecutive Sebring points
to make the lead a little more
comfortable.
But another cannon launch
from Pirate Mirabella to close
the third brought Braden River
to within 50-39.
That was, however, the clos-
est the visitors would be the rest
of the game.
Thirteen straight points to
open the final frame was pretty
much all she wrote as the flurry
came fast and furious and left
the Pirates reeling.
Sullivan got inside for a
three-point play, Shoop scored
twice, Lee ripped a jumper,
Whitney Wells got inside for a
hoop and off a Brenita Grant
steal, Sullivan laid one in on the
break.
Mirabella connected from
the top of the key, but the
Streaks were streaking and
there was no stopping the ram-
page.
Brittany Bullock scored
inside and got fouled for three
points, another Grant steal led
to a lefty lay-in from Lee and
then Grant got into the scoring
frenzy herself, canning three
jumpers.
When the smoke cleared,
Sebring had dismantled the
Pirates ship to the tune of a 28-
4 fourth quarter.

for the Streaks Friday night.


wonder, where is the state rank-
ing?
But don't count Sampson
among that line of thinking.
"We're a big secret that's
being kept," he said. "I don't
mind at all that we're not
ranked, because I know what
we've got here."
"(Whitney) Lee is our go-to
scorer, but we've got a lot of
weapons and on any given night
someone might be our scoring
leader."
It was Lee this night, with an
all-around game of 19 points,


seven rebounds and six assists.
Shoop added 15 points and
nine rebounds, Sullivan went
for 13 points, Grant tallied 10
points, eight assists, three
blocks and six steals, while
Bullock scored eight and
grabbed 10 rebounds.
The team will finish up the
regular season with three games
this week before heading to the
District 10-3A tournament and
likely the state playoffs, where
the unranked Streaks could well
be somebody's unpleasant sur-
