returns



to duty

AVON PARK Before sunup
Saturday soldiers began congregating
on the drill floor of the Florida Army
National Guard Armory.
They shook hands and exchanged
stories while the battery leadership met
behind closed doors in a conference
room off to the side before their first
formation since returning from duty in
Iraq -,
"Welcome,: home," Capt. Anthony
Phillips, Bravo Battery commander,
said to his men, who stood at ease in
three platoons 1st fire, 2nd fire and
headquarters. "You've probably heard
that numerous times since you've been
back. It's the last time I'm going to say
it because you're home now."
Phillips, who didn't deploy with his
troops, turned the soldiers over to their
platoon leaders who quickly released
the soldiers to their platoon sergeants.
With the smell of bacon and eggs
wafting through the armory (members
of the Family Readiness Group were
cooking a special breakfast), the sol-
diers spent the next hour in sergeant's
time going over basic soldiering issues
such as addressing uniform deficien-
cies, fixing personnel issues and re-
learning their roles as field artillerymen
- fire directions specialists, rocket
launcher crewmen and ammunition han-


process. Attorney Jim
McCollum, who represents two
of the affected Class 9 creditors
(including Sheryl Fratel, aunt of
Joran owner Mark Shenker),
said Joran's 50 percent payment
plan was a case of the company
going back on its word.
"Joran has filed a plan that
does not comply with what they
had said they were going to do,"

dlers.
By 9 a.m., they would commence a
series of briefings to reintegrate the sol-
diers into the National Guard and the
Army, both of which experienced struc-
tural, administrative and philosophical
changes.
During a change of command cere-
mony in March, Phillips will pass the
unit guidon to Capt. Dewayne Davis, of
Jacksonville.
Davis attended the drill, drifting in
the background as he observed the war-
hardened warriors who will be under his


tutelage.
Davis transferred


from the 53rd


Infantry Division's brigade headquar-
ters, where he was the assistant J4 -
supply. He's new to Bravo's parent
command, 3rd Battalion, 116th Field
Artillery (Multiple Launch Rocket
Systems).
"It's actually better for me," Davis
said of taking command of a battery in a
battalion he's not been in before. "I
don't know anything negative about
anybody in this battery."
The soldiers went through a lot of
stressful events during their year in Iraq,
Davis said. But, as far as he's con-
cerned, everybody will have a clean
slate when he takes over in March.

project in some capacity.
Marsha Rydberg, who is rep-
resenting the city of Sebring in
the bankruptcy case, said the
plan will probably not be
approved. .
"It's pretty vague, and I don't
think it's going to fly," Rydberg
said. "I think they filed that

With new leadership in place and a
return to their primary mission, Davis
expects his men will be ready for the
training that awaits them.
"They have not touched their equip-
ment in two years," Davis said, explain-
ing that the soldiers who performed
security details at Abu Ghraib and
Camp Bucca in Iraq must regain profi-
ciency on their rocket launchers by
August.

picks first chairman


Key said three
commission seats
to be challenged
in 2008

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING He's a famous
face people are not likely to
recognize among Highlands'
political elite.
Ted Key is the first-ever
chairman of Highlands execu-
tive committee of the American
Party of Florida.
"I was on the outside looking
in on the core," Key said Friday
during an interview at his Golf
Hammock home, explaining
how he was tapped to be the
new party's first local-level
leader.


The core is about 20 resi-
dents who have defected from
the Republican and Democrat
parties. Some of that core, Key
said, was active in their respec-
tive parties.
SHe was not active, which is
what state chairman Tom
Macklin wanted in establishing
an American Party of Florida
chapter in Highlands.
Key grew up a "dirt poor"
Democrat, drawn by the party's
conservative values during the
1960s and '70s. He followed
the conservative migration to
the Republican Party something
during the 1980s.
"Now," Keys said. "I don't
think you can tell the difference
between one party or the other."
As it was Friday, Key is the
sole officer of the local execu-
tive committee. He has people

benefit account

established
SEBRING An account
has been established to help
the family of Malikiah J.
Hosteen, who underwent a
multiple-organ transplant
Monday.
Malikiah's family has
received financial help from
Miss Highlands County
Katlyn Hammortree and the
Sebring High School Art
Club.
Though 10-month-old
Malikiah received several
new organs that will give
him a fighting chance to
live, his family still expects
their financial burden to
accrue.
They're required to keep
the baby close to Jackson
Memorial Hospital in Miami
for at least the next 12
months.
Dell Hosteen, Malikiah's
father, will live in the fami-
ly's apartment in Sebring
while his wife Shauna and
their two other sons will live
in Miami.
On weekends, he'll drive
the three hours to be with
his family, Hosteen said
Friday.
The benefit account is at
Mid-Florida Credit Union,
which has branches in north
and south Sebring.
Checks can be made out
to the Malikiah J. Hosteen,

LAKE PLACID Monday
six students will be recognized
for their completion of the Star
Character Enhancement
Program from Lake Placid
Elementary School.
The Star program, designed
for students from ages 11-15,
has been operating since 2002
and is held at both LPE and
Lake Country Elementary
schools as well as on a continu-
ing basis around middle and
high schools across the county.
Students that participate in
the program are forced to think
about their decisions in once a
week meetings during school,
from decisions made on a daily
basis to the ones that will be
made in the future.
Meetings are an hour long
and cover the many steps
towards the completion of the
program.
There are 13 steps dealing
with various issues such as
keeping away from drugs, alco-
hol and tobacco; resisting vio-
lence, and waiting until mar-
riage before having sex.
The program notices those
issues as a roadblock to success
and interacts with students by
having them make and keep
personal commitments to them-
selves, from staying away from
wrong decisions to understand-
ing what is important to them as
they get older.
One of the 13 steps, culmi-
nating in the completion of the
program; gives students a list of
ideas so they can figure out
what is important to them in
life.
Participants take the list and
choose the ideas they would
want in their lives, from
achievements, adventure and


creativity to fame, freedom,
leadership, respect, wealth, and
inner strength.
Of the almost 20 ideas, stu-
dents choose four to strive
towards over the course of the
program and on into the future.
One of the steps in the pro-
gram helps reinforce the pas-
sage of time and the effect it
has, with students looking at
how technology has changed
during the last 100 years.
Kids reflect on this while
they think about their own
future, Prevention Specialist
Program coordinator Theresa
Williams said.
"The All Star Celebration
Monday at Lake Country
Elementary shows the comple-
tion of all the 13 steps to com-
plete the program," Williams
said. "These students made the
personal commitment to them-
selves to keep away from the
three risk behaviors and to
strive towards the four ideas
they want in their life."
The six students who have
completed the program to be
recognized on Monday after-
noon at Lake Placid Elementary
are Crystal Gasper, Akinkawon
Hawthorne, Brianna Southard,
Alkheem Portee, Shonkeria
Robinson and Daezha Holden,
all fifth-graders.
On Thursday, nine more stu-
dents from Lake Country
Elementary who have also
completed the program will be
participating in the All Star
Celebration.
Those students are Ashlee
Lightsey, Quaneisha Maybell,
Marcos Espinosa, Alfonso
Hillman, Randy Colvert,
Robert Lee Walton, Alfred
Davids and Traverrian
Williams, all fifth-graders.

A Moore Haven man was in serious condition Saturday after five cars crashed on State Road 70 in Lake
Placid, killing a horse in a trailer.


Horse dies in five vehicle accident


News-Sun
LAKE PLACID A horse died Friday after-
noon on State Road 70 at the Bear Hollow
entrance.
Five vehicles were involved in the 1 p.m. crash
on the rain-slicked road.
Three people were transported to Florida
Hospital Lake Placid Koty Lewis, 25, of
Moore Haven, with serious injuries and John W.
and Patricia Cobb, 60 and 59 respectively, of
Midway, Ga., both with minor injuries, Florida
Highway Patrol Trooper John N. Paikai said in a


press release.
Paikai said Lewis was eastbound on S.R. 70 in
a blue 2003 Dodge pickup when he lost control
avoiding a vehicle in front him that was stopped,
waiting for traffic to clear to turn into the Bear
Hallow community.
The accident led to a chain reaction of vehicles
gliding off of each other as they took evasive
action to avoid head-on collisions.
Charges are pending, Paikai said in the release.
Lake Placid's Frankie Hernandez, 19, wasn't
injured.


S73-year-old man among



cannabis grow suspects


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun. com
A 73-year-old Lake Placid man was among
nine arrests at six marijuana grow houses in
Highlands County.
A Miami man was arrested, early Friday for
attempted home invasion, Highlands County
Sheriff Susan Benton said in a press release.
Newssun.com first reported the development
Friday afternoon, as members of Benton's
Narcotics Task Force, Florida Department of Fish
and Wildlife and the Avon Park Police
Department collected intelligence and conducted
searches in Lake Placid and Venus.
"(Friday's) events started with a frantic 911
call," Benton said in her press release. "The caller
reported shots were being fired into their home
and that at least two or three Hispanic men were
trying to get into their house."
Deputy Monica Griffith located and arrested
home invasion suspect, Ernesto Estepa, 40, of
Miami.
Estepa allegedly tried to break into a house at
2611 Lake Josephine Drive about 5 a.m., Deputy
J.P. Fane said Friday.
Fane said the invasion suspect knew about the
grow operation, a likely factor in why the house
was targeted. When officers arrived, however,
they had to get a search warrant to inspect the
victims' house.


The officers couldn't miss the odor of a mari-
juana, Fane said.
A command post was set up at the intersection
of Lake Josephine Drive and Payne Road, and
task force officers served their search warrants at
2210 Lake Josephine Drive, 147 Williams Road,
200 McMahon, 320 Guymon Ave. and 72 Quail
Run, Venus.
Fane said the operation at 2611 Lake Josephine
was well-established with a tiered potting system.
Enough plants to fill several boxes were removed
from that residence, which like most grow
houses was stealing an indeterminable amount
of power from the electric company.
Livan Hernandez, 36, Hialeah, Rolando
Castillo, 36, 2611 Lake Josephine Drive, and
Ketty Burgos, 26, Hialeah, made their initial
appearances Saturday for cultivation and traffick-
ing in cahnabis.
They're being held on $251.000. $101.000 and
$101,000 bonds, respectively, Lisa Burley-
McGehee said.
The remaining suspects are being held without
bond, pending first appearances. They are Jose
Pinero, 44, Sebring; Jose Vargas, 73, Pedro
Ramirez Herrera, 41, and Jaime Gil, 27, all of
Lake Placid; Orlando Menes, 41, Miami Beach;
and Karell Yirizar Garcia, 26, of Venus.
All but two of the suspects, Menes and
Herrera, are citizens of either Mexico or Cuba:

OPEN EAR HEARING PH

Isn't all hearing "open ear"? hearing systems

Not for people who wear hearing aids. When you think of hearing
aids you think of big, bulky "horseshoes" on the ear...or what looks
like a wad of pink "chewing gum" inside the ear...both of which 1 R
plug up your ears....BUT NOT ANY MORE!


Introducing Open Ear Hearing

Great Hearing in Noisy Environments
No "Plugged Up" Feeling
No Whistling
Light weight...you won't notice it
Small and cliscrete...no one else will notice
it either!

officials say they're looking for
more than cash.
"It's not just a matter of them
repaying the money," City
Attorney Michael'Swaine said.
"They owe us complete con-
struction of the hotel and cre-
ation of the jobs they said
they'd create."
Swaine said the city was
promised creation of 150 jobs
out of the project, including at
least 70 low and moderate
income positions.
"The prime reason behind the
entire program was to create
jobs," Swaine said.
Swaine said the city also
wasn't happy with Joran's 50
percent offer to the Class 9
creditors.

mum optional fuel taxes 12
cents per gallon.
Timothy Mechling, budget
manager for Highlands County,
noted that that rate is not
indexed, meaning despite the
cost of fuel, county revenue is
per gallon sold.
"A penny five years ago is a
penny now," Mechling said,
explaining that purchasing
power road improvements is
diminished.
Highlands County collects
the 9th cent tax (one penny per
gallon), the 6-cent local option
tax (six cents per gallon) and
the 5-cent local option (five
cents per gallon).
DeSoto and Polk counties
also collect the maximum, but
Glades County only collects 7
cents per gallon, Okeechobee
County collects 7 cents per gal-
lon and Orange County collects
6 cents per gallon.


"Our.,position is, Shenker
shouldn't get anything out of it
until people are paid in full,"
Swaine said. "We're not
pleased with the offer to pay 50
percent to the creditors."
Rydberg has filed a motion
for "relief of the automatic
stay," which would allow the
city to resume foreclosure pro-
ceedings on the property's
mortgage.

The filing of a
Reorganization Plan is required
in a Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The

Staff Sgt. John Collazo, the
battery mess sergeant, left his

security duty alongside the

He joined the Guard in 1995,
after a 19 year break in service.
A Bonita Springs resident,
Collazo was drafted for the
Vietnam War and was a com-
munications specialist then.
At the prison, infamous for
"atrocities" that occurred there
and were photographed,
Collazo guarded the hospital.
"On Valentine's Day last

But, when it comes to his
politics, Key said he doesn't put
on an act he is who he is,
whether he's the party chairman
or holding an elected office.
When former Avon Park
Mayor Tom Macklin introduced
an ordinance that would have
cracked down on illegal immi-
grants, or at least those who
knowingly dealt with them,
Key's friendship with Macklin
reached a new level of respect.
"That's what made America
strong," Key said, commending
Macklin for taking on a contro-
versialissue that was an uphil
battle from the first step.
"People standing up for what is
right."
His primary objective for the


In addition to the county fuel
taxes, motorists fueling up in
Highlands pay 18.4 cents per
gallon to the federal govern-
ment and 14.9 cents per gallon
to Florida, Mechling said, not-
ing that Highlands' 7-percent
sales tax does not apply to retail
gas.
With freight less expensive
closer to the ports, Grimsley
said the major factor for gas
prices in Highlands is the retail-
er.
When the Grimsleys were in
the retail gas business, they had
stations in each of the three
municipalities.
Every Monday, they'd sur-
vey their competition's prices
and adjust the prices according-
ly for the next day, Grimsley
said.

In the proposed Chapter 11
reorganization plan, Kenwhite
Management, a limited liability
corporation out of Delaware,
would take ownership of Joran
Realty (and by extension, the
Harder Hall hotel). In this sce-
nario, Shenker would receive a
10 percent profit interest in the
Harder Hall property once com-
pleted.
If the reorganization plan
wins approval, Shenker would
transfer Joran's title to
Kenwhite. Shenker would still
be recognized as the chairman
of the board in a reorganized
Joran Realty. The reorganiza-
tion would then discharge Joran
from any further debts and lia-

A civilian employee of the
state, Collazo said he took five
weeks off to be with family
before he returned to his job as
a case manager for people with
disabilities.
"I guess I'm too uptight," he
said, when asked if anything
changed for him during his

what got him through the

rather than later, he said.
"We're holding all options
open," he said of the upcoming
races. "And, they won't be lame

name recognition as other

The volume of fuel sales at a
given station dictates how fast it
can respond to price fluctua-
tions of crude oil.
If barrel prices drop, the sta-
tions that move a tanker load
(7,500 gallons) of gas daily can
immediately respond to the
lower prices.
But, if a station's daily sales
are closer to 1,000 gallons, she
said it might take that retailer 2-
3 days to respond.
As of Friday afternoon, sta-
tions in Lake Placid had prices
of $2.289 and $2.279. Avon

Why 50% of homes

don't sell the first time


By Judy Welker
If your home has just
come off the market and
hasn't sold, don't be discour-
aged. The reason your home
did not sell may have nothing
to do with your home or the
market.
In reality, your home may
have been one of the more
desirable properties for sale.
"So Why Didn't Your
Home Sell?"
Last year many of the homes
listed for sale never sold at all,
and many sellers found that
there was a tremendous
amount a homeowner needed
to be educated on to sell their
home for top dollar in the
shortest time period.


Don't risk making the wrong
choices and losing both time
and money on your invest-
ment. Before you hire a real-
tor, know the right questions
to ask to save you time and
money.
Industry experts have pre-
pared a free special report
called "How to sell a home
that didn't sell" which edu-
cates you on the issues
involved.

days a week.'Call now to
make sure your home sells the
next time you list it for sale.

rate. A settlement was reached
on the fifth.
Class 8 is the Miami-Dade
County Tax Collector, who filed
a claim for $21,915 for "delin-
quent personal property ad val-
orem taxes for 2005 and 2006"
on three Miami Beach proper-
ties, presumably owned by
Shenker. Joran is disputing this
claim, as well.

Case could become
Chapter 7
Joran's reorganization plan
could be rendered moot, how-
ever, if the court decides to con-
vert the case from Chapter 11 to
Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
A conversion into Chapter 7
would result in a liquidation of
Joran Realty's assets by a court-
appointed trustee. The money
from selling off Joran's assets
would then be used to pay off
the company's debts.
A Chapter 7 conversion


would be of the best interest to
a majority of creditors,
McCollum said, and it would
allow an open bidding process
on the property.
"Joran wants to continue
business as usual," he said.
"Most everybody else wants to
look at what they've done and
probably convert it to a full
bankruptcy so that other people
can bid (on the property) too."
At a Feb. 14 hearing, the
bankruptcy court will hear the
court-appointed examiner's
findings and use them to deter-
mine what happens in the case
next. McCollum said he is look-
ing forward to hearing the
examiner's findings.
"We agreed to the examiner
and I want to see what he says,"
he said. "I suspect we're going
to see there's too much hanky-
panky in terms of money going
back and forth. But I've got an
open mind thus far."

Putting people

to work
When I set out early Friday
morning it was deeply overcast
and threatening rain not a
good omen if you're going on
a flea market outing.
Still I crossed my fingers
and set out for the Lion's Club
in Sebring, where every
Thursday and Friday a flea
market sets up.
Only this Friday, because of
the weather, only a handful of
sellers were there. And they
were packing up to leave as I
pulled in.
It left me in a quandary,
especially as I had no back-up
and my deadline was, like,
now.
A little over a year ago I
would have lit a cigarette and
smoked while worrying about
the problem, but I'm past that
instead, I went and ate a
breakfast.
Which turned out to be the
best of ideas, because it took
meright past the Heartland
Workforce One Stop Career
See WORK, page 12A


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christophertuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING According to the
Florida Agency for Workforce
Innovation, Madison County had the
highest rate of unemployment in the
state, 7.1 percent, for the month of
December 2006.
Walton County, with a rate of 2.1 per-
cent, had the lowest unemployment rate
that month.
Highlands County had a rate of 3.0
percent, Hardee a rate of 3.3 percent and
DeSoto 3.6 percent.
Roger Hood, executive director of
Heartland Workforce, which includes
those last three counties, said that an
unemployment rate of 3 percent is
healthy. It indicates that everyone who
wants to work, is doing so.
But he emphasized that unemploy-
ment rates are not always the critical fig-
ure.
There is a balance and blend that have
to occur to create a healthy, long term
economy, he said, and the Heartland area
faces certain challenges.
One of the most daunting, because it
is affected by so many variables, is the
level of wages and salaries in the area.
Using 2005 figures provided by the
U.S. Department of Commerce, the most
recent available, the average annual
wage in the Heartland area (Highlands,
Hardee and DeSoto) is $25,938. That is
the lowest annual wage in the state. By
comparison, the average annual wage for
Florida as a whole is $36,622.
Hood added that Florida is one of the
fastest growing states in the nation, aver-
aging about 15 percent growth.
The problem, he said, is how to attract
the best of the workers among those new
arrivals, with the below average wages
that exist here coupled as they are
with a general lack of employee incen-
tives or benefit programs.
He pointed out that low wages have a
cascading effect. Parents with low

wages, cannot afford to pay for quality
child care, for example, something that
might cause a family to locate some-
where else.
"How are we going to entice quality
people here?" he asked. "We have to
somehow work with our employers, and
find a way to step out and impact every-
one in the region."
The Workforce also-deals with the-
other end of the equation the hard
core unemployed.


"We have a couple of grants coming
that we're going to use to find out how to
reach out to the underemployed," Hood
said. To that end he hopes to help
employers, and enlist their interest. "By
retraining workers, we can reduce
turnover," he said, adding the Heartland
Workforce has a grant writing team that
often finds funding to help offset train-
,-ing costs.
Hood added his center is committed to
outreach. With a $250,000 grant, the

will act as a mobile disaster
assistance center in the event of
emergencies.
"We are the first rural region
to get one," Hood said.
The mobile center is just one
example of the Heartland
Workforce's commitment to the
cutting edge. Hood pointed to
his organization's other suc-
cesses.


WORK
Continued from 9A
Center. Sitting at the traffic
light, staring at the center's
sign, I suddenly thought, "It
isn't such reach for a feature
about jobs, to look into how to
find one. And in any case, it's
indoors."'
And with that I turned a
hard right, pulled into the park-
ing lot and dashed through the
rain to the center's front door,
as unexpected an arrival as a
fish falling out of the sky.
But what a warm reception I
got.
From Virginia Adair and
Mary Etta Llewellyn at the
front desk (who made sense of
my stammered requests), to
Roger Hood, the Workforce's
executive director (who sat
with me for over an hour and
answered.every question), to,
Blanca Llano, the center's
manager (who took me on a
complete tour and piled my
arms full with booklets and
flyers and all kinds of
research), to the specialists at
their desks everyone
extended themselves, and
showered me with information.
It was almost overwhelming.
But what impressed me
most, was the passion Hood
and Llano displayed.
They were really proud -
both of the work that they do,
and how well they do it. I'm
not talking here about personal
pride, but about a sense of mis-
sion and a confidence in their
co-workers.
It turns out there is a new
paradigm in the field of unem-
ployment. It emerged during


"The state ranks workforces
by the amount of federal incen-
tives they receive over the
year," he explained. "Incentives
are based entirely upon per-
formance. Last year we
received $229,166.64, in feder-
al incentives. That made us the
top performing region in the
state (out of 24)."
The One Stop Career Center
services about 1,800 job seek-
ers a month. The center projects
about 1,000 new jobs will be
opening up in Highlands


the Bill Clinton administration,
the result of bi-partisan legisla-
tion. It took the form of the
federal Workforce Investment
Act of 1998.
As a result of the act, the old
model of unemployment center
was scrapped, Hood said. Gone
was the policy of supporting
the unemployed through long
term programs of public assis-
tance. Instead, deadlines were
set and a goal of individual
self-sufficiency became the
focus. That meant preparing
individuals and moving them
into the workforce.
An entirely new structure
was created, based on the idea
that by helping local employ-
ers, the community's work-
force would grow and prosper.
First federal funds, collected
from a tax on business specifi-
cally for the program, was
redirected back to the 50 states,
where it was further funneled
into local communities.
In 2000, the Heartland
Workforce Consortium was
created, to serve Highlands,
Hardee and DeSoto counties. It
develops the programs, spends
the funds, and oversees job
seekers.
The Heartland is one of 24
regional boards in the state. By
law, 51 percent of a board's
members have to come from
the private sector, joining with
elected officials and a variety
public and private service
agency representatives. There
is a strong partnership with
South Florida Community
College, which provides most
of the training and advanced
education opportunities in the
area.
"Each (county) had limited

Roger Hood is the executive director for the Heartland Workforce and Blanca Llano manages the One-
Stop Career Center in Sebring. Faced with an inquiring reporter and no notice, they rose to the occasion
with a complete and fact-filled tour. From a resource room for job seekers, to conference rooms for busi-
nesses, the One-Step Career Center represents the human side of economics.


resources," Hood said, "but
combined we could do some-
thing more and keep the ideas
flowing."
One of the first orders of
business was to create a place
where employers and employ-
ees could meet and train, and
where those new to the world
of employment, or who had
been away for a period of time,
could get back into the system.
One Stop Career Centers
became the answer.
The Heartland has three


such centers in Sebring,
Arcadia and Wauchula. Being
employer-oriented, they offer
many practical services.
For example, in the Sebring
center there is a room filled
with computers, so typing tests
done on behalf of a company
can be administered there.
And a company may have
job applicants screened at the
center by center staff, or by the
company's own personnel in
rooms especially provided.
There are provisions where a


company's existing staff can be
brought in for upgrade training,
and specialists who can find
grant money to help pay for it.
The idea is to be holistic.
"We are the people part of
economic development," Hood
said, and he smiled widely as
he said it.'

Rarely has justice in Florida felt this unjust.
The.state has agreed to pay Frank Valdes' relatives
$737,500. That's to compensate them for ... what? It's not
like Valdes ever waggoing to be sharing an ample, steady
income with his father, Mario Valdes, or his wife, Wanda.
Valdes was a murderer, sent to Death Row for the 1987
shooting of Glades Correctional Institution officer Fred
Griffiths. Valdes killed Griffiths during an escape attempt
outside a West Palm Beach doctor's office. His wife, who
lives in Palm Beach County and married Valdes while he
was on Death Row, told The Post: "I'm not getting a for-
tune out of this. This case is not about money to me. It's
about justice."
It's annoying that anybody is getting any money out of
this case, and the fact that someone is doesn't feel like
"justice." Unfortunately, it turns out that forcing the state
to pay money to somebody is just about the only way to
squeeze a little justice out of the bleak situation.
In 1999, a group of guards at Florida State,Prison beat
Valdes to death in his cell. And he didn't die from one
freak blow. The guards broke all his ribs and fractured his
sternum, spine and jaw, along with inflicting other inter-
nal injuries.
In short, the guards were even more brutal and inept
than Florida's official executions.
When guards who represent the legal power of the
state abuse that power to beat to death an inmate even
an inmate on Death Row that's a crime. The state
charged nine guards and brought four to trial, but the jury
found them not guilty. Sensing the futility of trying again
in a region where the prisons are a major employer, the
state dropped charges against the other five guards.
Valdes' father filed a federal suit against the guards and
various prison officials in 2002. But, in the end, state tax-
payers will have to pay up, if a Jacksonville judge gives
final approval to the settlement, which, by the way, could
mean a $432,423 payday for Valdes' lawyer, Guy Rubin,
and his firm.
Does he deserve the money? Billable hours more
than 1,300 of them say he does. And we acknowledge
that, in the end, Florida had to be held to account for,
among other things, hiring guards whose impulses
proved to be as bad as the men they were guarding and
never should have been allowed to exercise the state's
authority.
It's a tiny, tiny amount of justice to get for the state's
$737,500.

Gas prices at the pump have decreased in the past weeks as
crude oil prices drop. But is it enough? Some members of the

fuel, auditors, charity and the paper:

"I e-mailed Denise Grimsley about the differences in our gas
prices between Lake Placid, Sebring and Avon Park. She e-mailed
me back to say that she would be in Highlands County soon and
would look into it and that there should not be a difference. We will
see!" I

False alarm closes the streets of Boston


If you have been to an airport
anytime in the last few years,
you've heard the instruction to
"report unattended luggage."
We've gotten somewhat para-
noid about things just lying
around thanks to the War ory
Terror. A suitcase left by a fraz-
zled passenger now takes on
sinister possibilities.
That explains the long day
Boston police had the middle of
last week. And it was thanks to
a I am not kidding cartoon
character.
Let me back up and explain.
Cartoon Network has a show
called "Aqua Teen Hunger
Force." Turner Broadcasting,
the people who own Cartoon
Network, decided on a publicity
campaign in 10 cities, including
Boston. Part of the campaign
consisted of something that the
news stories I've read called
"magnetic lights."
I've seen a picture of one of
these devices. They remind me
of the gadget that in my day
was called "Lite-Brite." It con-
sisted of a box with a bright
light that you put a piece of
black paper over. Then you


pushed little col- LA
ored pegs into the LAURA'
paper and made
pretty pictures. Laur
(By the way, if
Syou remember
Lite-Brite, it still
exists. Check. out www.has-
b r o c o m
/litebrite/.)
Anyway, someone scattered
these magnetic lights through-
out Boston. Someone noticed
one under Interstate 93. They
apparently did not look at this
thing and say, "Gee, this is an
advertisement for 'Aqua Teen
Hunger Force.'" As far as I can
tell, they said, "Eek."
SI think they did this because
someone notified the Bomb
Squad. They arrived and took
the device rather seriously, to
the point of blowing it up.
According to the news reports,
it had a circuit board and com-
ponents that were, and I quote:
"consistent with an improvised
explosive device." However,
they determined it did not con-
tain any explosive material.
SThen other "magnetic
devices" were found. Police


S

[ 1


LOO checked out at least
LOOK nine different loca-
tions in the area,
Ware disrupting traffic
and causing the
city to grind to a
halt.
At some point Turndr
Broadcasting discovered that
they weren't getting quite the
reaction they were aiming for
and stepped in. They apolo-
gized all over the place and
cooperated in telling the author-
ities where the devices were.
As I type this column, some-
one has been arrested in con-
nection with the whole thing.
Police and Boston officials are
not amused. There is talk of
holding Turner Broadcasting
financially liable for the over-
time police had to put in. More
arrests are possible.
Officials emphasized that
they don't'think there is a ter-
rorist connection and asked
people to stay cool. The offi-
cials struck me as massively
ticked off. 1 wouldn't want to be
on their bad side right now.
Turner Broadcasting says the
devices were in the 10 cities for


two or three weeks. That raises
nry eyebrows. They've been
around that long and someone
just now noticed them? OK,
that is a little disturbing, even if
they were harmless. Not to
mention if they yvere sitting
there unnoticed all that time it
isn't exactly effective advertis-
ing.
As far as the show it was
advertising. Well, I have seen
very little of "Adult Swim," the
late night block of shows on the
Carton Network that are a lit-
tle more mature than their usual
fare. What I have seen hasn't
exactly impressed me. Not my
taste.
SAdditional details of this
story will probably have sur-
faced by the time this column
comes out. In the meantime,
don't panic just because Turner
Broadcasting managed to shut
down an entire city with an
advertising stunt. And be sure
to put away .your Lite-Brite
when you're done playing with
it.

Much confusion

in differences

Editor:
What is the difference
between Sunni and Shiite?
To the outsider, the differ-
ences between the Sunni and
Shiite Islamic sects are hard to
recognize.
Silvestre Reyes, a
Democratic nominee to head
the House Intelligence
Committee, failed to answer
both questions correctly when
put to the test by Congressional
Quarterly. He mislabeled Al
Qaeda as predominantly Shiite,
and on Hezbollah, which is
mostly Shiite, he drew a blank.
"Speaking only for myself,"
he told reporters, "it's hard to
keep things in perspective and
in the categories."
Not that he's alone, other
members of Congress from
both parties have also flunked
on-the-spot inquiries. Indeed,
some of the smartest statesmen
of the last century have found
Themselves in a quandary by
Islam. Winston Churchill in
1921, while busy drawing
razor-straight borders across a
changing Middle East, asked an
aide for a three-line note
explaining the "religious char-
acter" of the Hashemite leader
he planned to install in
Baghdad.
Mr. Churchill wrote, "Is he a
Sunni with Shiite sympathies
or a Shiite with Sunni sympa-
thies? I always get mixed up
between these two."
And maybe religious memo-
rization should not be required
for policymaking. Yet, improv-
ing American intelligence, of
the Middle East and the


American intelligence commu-
nity, maybe should require a
course in religious memoriza-
tion techniques, an organiza-
tion chart and definitely a
pocket sized cheat sheet.

So what caused the original
divide?
The split between the two
main branches of Islam is near-
ly 1,400 years ldd, and started
with a fight over who should
lead the faithful after the
prophet Muhammad's death.
The Sunnis thought that any
worthy man could lead the
faithful, regardless of lineage,
and favored Abu Bakr, an early
convert to Islam who had mar-
ried into Muhammad's family.
"Sunni" is derived from the
Arab word for "followers" and
is shorthand for "followers of
the prophet."
The other side, believed that
direct descendants of the
prophet should take up the
mantle of the caliph (a.k.a.- the
leader of the world's faithful).
They were known as the Shiat-
Ali, or "partisans of Ali," after
the prophet's cousin and son-in-
law Ali, whom they favored to
become caliph. In time, they
came simply to be known as
Shiites. Ali and his successors
are called imams, who not only
lead the Shiites, but are consid-
ered to be descendants of
Muhammad.

Shiites believe their Mahdi
will come with the Prophet
Jesus, who is not the son of
Allah, but is the soh of Mary.
This Mahdi will be the leader
while the Prophet Jesus will act
as his lieutenant in the struggle
to bring the Islamic faith to the
whole world, and bring peace,


justice and security within an
- Islamic one world government.
Islam holds that the Mahdi is
the rider on the white horse, the

first of the "Four Hoisemen of
the Apocalypse."
Iran's President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad has said that the
Mahdi will reappear this March "
21, which is the Vernal
Equinox. Ahmadinejad
believes he must usher in this
Islamic prophecy marking the
return of the 12th Imam, who is
to rule for seven years.
Adding to the potential cotl-
fusion is the insistence of many
Muslims not to be identified as
Shiite or Sunni, saying they are
Muslims and Muslims only.

Bush no friend

of teachers

Editor:
There will be a number of
assessments on Governor
Bush's imprint on the state of
Florida, some favorable and
some unfavorable. This may be
deemed unfavorable, although -
it is intended to be objective.
Gov. Bush has been called*
the Education Governor. That


could be problematic. How can
one be an education governor
when the -state is rated lower
nationally after his six,years in
office? He definitely is not a
friend of teachers; in fact, there
has been and continues to be a
critical shortage of qualified
teachers, especially when at
least a third of them are teach-
ing out of field.
The teacher flight is signifi-
cantly troublesome when they
leave the state after three to
four years of experience.
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test and No Child
Left Behind are also trouble-
some. The rules and tests con-
stantly change; the teachers and
students have to adjust with
each new procedure. Then
there is confusion between
FCAT and NCLB. On must
confess confusion w n FCAT
can score'a school ith an A,
while NCLB can score the
same school with F. There
are two factors of d6ncern with
FCAT and NCLB: funding and
the narrow window of compe-
tent accountability.
Some of the education budg-
et went for administration of
FCAT and more funds went for
vouchers to private schools that
have no measure of accounta-
bility. This may be curious
because the state supreme court
ruled that vouchers were
unconstitutional. Even though
Congress passed the largest
education bill in U.S. history,
less than half of the authorized
funds have been spent and
many of those funds went to
private schools and churches.
Many schools were denied
funds because-one factor of 28
criteria failed. These were

schools whose students were in
greatest need, the very reason
why NCLB was crafted.
The FCAT areas of accounta-
bility are reading, writing and
math; science has just been
added for 2006-07. Whereas for
decades the schools aimed at
teaching the "whole child,"
now the scope has been nar-
rowed to four areas. Tragically,
the teachers do not have time to
cover the other areas because of
pressure to insure success on
FCAT. Teaching to a test was
forbidden in decades past.
NCLB includes more factors,
but uses a check off list to
measure success. Human input
is limited, or is it "humane"
input.
The World War II term, 90-
day wonder, comes to mind
when numerous professionals
of varied backgrounds are
given short courses in prepara-
tion to teach. Even with four
years of college for teachers, a


year or two of actual teaching is
necessary to assimilate what is
learned in college with life time
experience in the classroom.
This "new" approach is becom-
ing prevalent in Florida. Some
believe that "real" teachers are
born, not made. Today, let's
hope that is true among this
new cadre of teachers; howev-
er, the diverse and unprepared
students entering school today
will prove to be a formidable
challenge.
Truancy Currently, there is
a concerned effort to modify
state laws to address the prob-
lems of truancy. It appears that
state laws are unclear as to the
actual authority to implement
them on school campuses.
What with our litigious society,
schools are constantly being
sued because of alleged viola-
tions of constitutional rights. It
is necessary to first recognize
the problem of truancy; to
ascertain just what constitutes
truancy; to define the terms of
truancy; to institute procedures
for conviction of said viola-
tions; and to establish penalties

Rebuilding the GOP House


Hardly anyone beyond the
D.C. Beltway has ever heard of
the Republican Study
Committee. But the group of
more than 100 congressmen -
who are essentially the conser-
vative conscience of the House
of Representatives has an
important (and increasingly
tough) double mission: educat-
ing their less principled
Republican siblings and trying
to translate the conservative
tenets of limited government,
individual empowerment, a
strong national defense and tra-
ditional values into legislation.
Needless to say, with the
Bush administration spending
like crazy and Democrats about
to assume control of the House
and Senate, there's lots of work
ahead for newly elected study
committee chairman Jeb
Hensarling of Texas, a House
member elected from the Dallas
area in 2002.
Hensarling, 49, is a dedicated
advocate for economic growth,
job creation and tax relief who
has distinguished himself by
publicly challenging the White
House and his party leadership
on their bloated budgets and
wanton spending. I talked to the
former businessman and aide to
Sen. Phil Gramm by phone
Wednesday from his home near
Dallas.
Q: Are you part of a dying
breed of Republican conser-
vatives or are you in the van-
guard of a new Republican
Revolution?
A: Boy, I wish I knew the
answer to that. I've long since
discovered I cannot be a con-
gressman unless I'm an opti-
mist. In the four years I've
served as a member of the
House, although the number of
Republicans in the House has
decreased, I think the number


of conservatives in our
Republican conference has
increased. So I'm cautiously
optimistic that maybe there is
some silver lining in this big
gray cloud, and that is that the
Republican Party can once
again show the American peo-
ple that we are committed to
our core values and that we
know how to translate those
values into legislative proposals
that are meaningful to them and
their hopes and dreams and
aspirations for their families.
Q: What kind of
Republican are you?
A: Let me put it this way:
Until I went to Washington, I
didn't know how conservative I
was. I am passionate about my
commitment to limited govern-
ment and freedom. I simply
know that you can not have
unlimited opportunity and
unlimited government.
Although today I view the ter-
rorist threat from this radical
strain of Islam to be the greatest
threat to my country and my
family, I frankly view the sec-
ond greatest threat as a federal
government that has grown too
large, too intrusive, too power-
ful and too expensive.
Since I've got into the daddy
business four years ago, I've
spent a lot of time thinking
about the next generation. And
we know if we don't reform the
big three entitlement programs,
the next generation is going to
face a rather nasty fiscal fork in
the road. The bottom line is, for
all intents and purposes, there
will be no federal government
in one generation except
Medicare, Medicaid and Social
Security or we're going to have
to double taxes. I find both of
those untenable.
Q: Why did Republicans
lose Congress?


A: Nobody can deny the
power of the Iraqi conflict in
that election. But it is not the
only reason. Frankly, a very sig-
nificant reason is that too many
Americans came to the conclu-
sion that the Republican Party
lost its commitment to limited
government, to accountability,
to a balanced budget, to less
spending. So that is where there
is a huge battle. If you look at
the polls, and I've looked a
number of polls, particularly in
swing districts, the Republican
brand has been damaged. Fiscal
responsibility is one of our core
values. Nobody expects the
Democrats to be fiscally
responsible. But if we're not
fiscally responsible, I don't
know how we ever get back
into the majority.
Q: How will you measure
your success as chairman of
the Republican Study
Committee?
A: Right now, I am speaking
to a lot of smart people I know
in the conservative movement
and really trying to find out the
best way to organize the
Republican Study Committee
in the minority. It will be a dif-
ferent animal with different
emphases.
To some extent, our ultimate
purpose is the same. But we
know we can not advance the
Republican movement until the
Republican Party once again
regains the majority not sim-
ply for the sake of having the
majority, but for using the
majority to further our conser-
vative cause. We have to
engage in more advocacy with-
in our Republican conference.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop

Strolling

memory lane
What couple doesn't walk
down memory lane every
now and then? But when an
anniversary comes along,
it's fun to slow our pace to a
stroll. When that anniversary
is number 25, some
moments of stillness with
the wedding album are sure-
ly a must.
Like other couples, my
husband, Ken, and I ques-
tion where the years have
gone. We look back and
remember those days like
they were yesterday.
We had been single par-
ents, praying for a spouse
should God have that in his
plan for us. When we met
and grew to love one anoth-
er, we enfolded our two
families in that loving rela-
tionship.
So our wedding album is
a bit different than most.
Our children are in it, too.
Our sons were 10, 9 and 6
when we tied the knot.
Posing for those pictures
back then, we couldn't have
envisioned what the future
held.Now in their'30s -
two married with children
a banker and a Marine;
and one a single firefighter,
we find it incredible that
Ken and I were about the
ages they are now when we
married.
When we nostalgically
turn our thoughts to those
days, we echo the Psalmist
in Psalm 118: 23, NIV, "The
Lord has done this, and it is
marvelous in our eyes."
Reminiscing helps us to
see God in every wedding
photo and all the subsequent
photo albums of our lives.
He's the unseen One with
his arms around our shoul-
ders rejoicing with us or
uplifting us and pointing us
in the right direction.
Even though we didn't get
to date in the same way
most couples do, we weren't
concerned. We loved the
formative years with our
children. God had made us
a family and we were
thrilled. Eventually, the time
would come when they'd
step out of the nest and
build their own lives.
So while we nurtured our
marriage relationship, we
threw ourselves into being a
family. When they each
moved on, we entered
another season together a
"just the two of us" season
that came after rather than
before.
And watching who our
children have become and
enjoying the journey the
Lord has placed us on as a
couple, we see how every
day the Lord has given us
has been marked by his
love. And we conclude with
the Psalmist in verse 24,
"This is the day the Lord
has made; let us rejoice and
be glad in it."
As our 25th wedding
anniversary approaches this
Wednesday, we will sing of
God's marvelous love that
he dhily bestows on us -
rejoicing in years past and
looking forward to what he
has next. Selah.

New director

appointed for

Child

Evangelism

Fellowship

By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
W elcoming a bliz-
zard may seem
an incompatible
string of words.
However, the welcome mat is
out for a very special
"Blizzard."
Jim Blizzard, the new 25-
year-old Child Evangelism
Fellowship's director of
Florida's Heartland which
includes Highlands, Hardee
and Polk counties, has recently
been welcomed at a luncheon
at Homer's Smorgasbord.
Blizzard is married to
Amanda and they have a 1-
year-old son, Jimmy, and
another on the way in the
spring. They live in Lakeland
where he comes from a family
of pastors his dad, who pas-
tors a church in Lakeland; and,
his grandfather on the East
Coast.
"I grew up knowing I want-
ed to pursue full time Christian
ministry work," Blizzard said.
He graduated from
Clearwater Christian College
in.2003 with a major in biolo-
gy and minors in chemistry
and Bible. It was his intention
to become a medical mission-
ary overseas. He even took
some nursing courses.
"But, it became clear to me
during that time that this was
not where the Lord was leading
me. So, I began seminary
classes with a goal toward
completing seminary over the
next several years and becom-
ing a pastor in the United
States."
Blizzard utilizes his chem-
istry and biology education by.
working in the dairy process-
ing lab for Publix to support
his family while continuing to
pursue ministry training.
Meanwhile, his dad received
a letter from Child Evangelism
Fellowship that got him think-
ing. Director Rob Hecox was
moving on to become a mis-
sionary in Japan with Malachi
Children's Ministry, a joint
venture of CEF and Cadence
International to children on
American military bases.

Jim Blizzard brings his wife Amanda and son Jimmy to Sebring as he accepts the position of director for Child Evangelism Fellowship.


"My dad called me to come
and take a look at the letter. I
was intrigued and began the
process of applying for the
director's position."

A new focus
CEF had always been a part
of Blizzard's life as he had
been working on the edges
with them for some time.
He helped when his sisters
and brothers were with CEF's
Christian Youth in Action. He
.also had been a driver for
Christian Youth In Action dur-
ing a couple of summers; took
CEF classes and, worked at the
state fair sharing the "Wordless
Book," a book using colors to
tell the gospel story. He met
Hecox when he did presenta-
tions at Clearwater Christian
College while Blizzard was
still a student.
With all of this under his
belt and his belief in this

wanted to pursue full time

Christian ministry work.'
JIM BLIZZARD


organization and their work
with children, a new focus took
shape. His convictions prompt-
ed him to pursue the director-
ship. He met with the state
director and after interviewing
with the local and state boards,
he was approved.

Eyes to the future
Without reservation,
Blizzard shared his vision.
"My vision is to see Good
News Clubs in every public
elementary school in the area.
A Supreme Court ruling has


come down that CEF is
allowed to be in our public
schools."
Good News Clubs meet for
an hour once a week after
school and provide children
with a wholesome, safe and
fun place to play games, hear
missionary stories and sing
songs that help them learn
Bible verses while also hearing
a Bible story.
Blizzard believes that such
teaching will enhance the chil-
dren's lives and in turn the
school, community and the


Coloring inside the


By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
One of the first things we put into a
preschooler's hands is a crayon. This
chunky stick of colored wax intrigues a
little one. As we show him how to move
the crayon across a piece of paper, he's
rewarded with color bursting from his
finger tips to the once blank paper.
In a wave of childish artistry, scrib-
bled lines fill the paper and he moves
onto the next color, the next paper until
bored. As the child matures, coloring
books with wide-eyed animals, people
and fun places replace the blank sheet.
Still, childish scrawl spreads across the
page and outside the lines.
I remember teaching my son how col-
oring inside the lines produces a prettier
picture. But his immature motor skills
didn't allow him such control. And, if
left on his own without proper training,
who knows whether blank walls may
have become his canvas.
Learning to color inside the lines
requires patience and perseverance on
the part of the child as well as the parent.
And, when at last the.child accomplish-
es the feat of staying within the lines, a
sense of accomplishment and pride is
evident on his face.


Just as we persist in helping these
artistic bends in our children, we also
need to persist in helping them stay
within the lines of certain boundaries.
When they are taught that there is safety
inside the lines and danger outside the
lines, they'll be more apt to choose the
former.
However, like the coloring project, it
takes patience and persistence to teach
little ones to obey and develop self-con-
trol. Appropriate discipline must follow
disobedience so that the child appreci-


ates the importance of the lines of safety
drawn for their protection. When they
choose correctly the next time, the
results will be evident on their faces.
Have you ever sat and leisurely col-
ored a page with a child? The child is so
happy for your company and often pro-
duces page after page, not wanting you
to quit.
In such a quiet activity, it,s easy to
converse or sit in comfortable silence
together exchanging smiles and glances.
Trust and lessons are caught by simply


nation.
For Blizzard to work full-
time as CEF director, he must
raise his support level to 80
percent, the other 20 percent
being raised while he performs
his duties. He's at the very
beginning with 10 percent.
Blizzard's speaking engage-
ments are multiplying as he
spreads the word of how CEF
impacts the lives of children in
communities. He is available to
give a multi-media presenta-
tion in churches mornings
or evenings and in Sunday
schools or other opportunities.
He is eager to be full-time in
his capacity as director.
Donations designated for his
support can be sent to Child
Evangelism Fellowship, 2110
Sylvester Road, Lakeland, FL
33803.

lines


being together.
Creating parameters for helping your
child live within safe boundaries hap-,
pens in a similar way. In his book;
"Shepherding a Child's Heart," Dr. Tedd
Tripp helps parents to draw a simple cir-
cle of blessing. When the child stays
within the lines of this circle, he experi-
ences what is described in Ephesians
6:1-3 where children are taught to obey
and honor their parents so that it will go
well' with them and they may have a long
life.
If they stray outside that circle they go
into a danger zone and it is the parent's
responsibility to discipline them to come
back to the safety inside the line of the
circle.
How to teach children life,s lessons is
ongoing as seen in Deuteronomy 6:7 -
when you're at home, walking along
outdoors, getting ready for bed and aris-
ing to meet a new day.
Lessons taught by simply being
together coloring life inside the lines.

umn written by Jan Merop, ofSebring, to

Managing a yard during



severe drought conditions


Due to extremely dry condi-
tions this past season we find
ourselves under water restric-
tions in much of South-Central
Florida. Homeowners are
allowed only one watering per
week. This often leads to home-
owner frustration, since there is
a notion that reduced watering
frequency hurts a lawn.
Actually, the majority of water-
ing restrictions provide ample
watering frequencies for most
lawns, although there are
always exceptions to this. To
make sure that your lawn can
cope with mandated restric-
tions, you may need to alter
maintenance practices.
Recommendations are to
mow your lawn three to four
inches off of the ground. I set
my mower deck as high as it
will go. Mow often enough so
you do not remove more than
1/3 of the leaf blades at one
time. Use sharp mower blades
-- as clean cuts heal-faster and
require less water than leaves
torn by dull blades. These prac-
tices decrease stress and create
a healthier lawn.

morning,
prior to 8
a.m., so that

ture on the
leaf surfaces
will dry dur-

During these winter months

water when grass shows signs

nated day.
Due to increased stress and
reduced growth of grasses dur-
ing droughts, fertilization
should be reduced or postponed
until adequate rainfall is avail-
able. Herbicides or weed killers
can stress a lawn even under
good conditions. During a
drought, that stress can reduce
turf growth and the ability of
turf to compete with weeds.
Pesticides should only be
applied as needed and then only
to the affected area of the lawn.
St. Augustine grass is the
most widely used lawn grass in
Florida, but it does not have
good drought tolerance without
supplemental irrigation. Other
grass species, such as bahia
grass, has better drought toler-
ance. Although this grass will
turn brown during a drought, it
will resume growth and turn
green when enough water is
applied.
Another way to conserve
water is to install a rain barrel.

Highlands Art League sponsoring museum trip


SEBRING The Highlands
Art League is sponsoring a bus
trip for the public to the
Museum of Fine Arts in down-
town St. Petersburg on
Saturday, March 3, to view the
exhibit Natura Morta: Still-Life
Painting and the Medici
Collections.
According to museum per-
sonnel, the Medici dynasty,
which dominated the political
and cultural life of Florence,
Italy, from the 15th to the mid-
18th centuries is still acclaimed
today for its artistic patronage
and enlightened collectors.
Among the vast Medici collec-
tions bequeathed to the city of
Florence in perpetuity is an
extensive collection of still-life
paintings, known as natural
morta in Italian.
Today these paintings are
distributed among the Medici
villas and Florentine museums.
This exhibition of 43 works of
art from the Medici collections
offers a rare and unique oppor-
tunity to see exemplary works
of art. These paintings beauti-
fully illustrate the artistic con-
cern with "abundance of
nature," a preoccupation which,
in turn, has influenced the
development of western art and
culture. Artists include Willem
Van Aelst, Bartolomeo Bimbi,
Margherita Caffi, and Andrea
Scacciati."
The Museum of Fine Arts
has a permanent collection of
more than 4,600 objects extend-
ing from antiquity to the present
day and includes works by such
major French artist as

Back Porch Revival strumming in Highlands Hammock


What do you get when you
mix nine people, a trailing
banjo, mandolin, autoharp, fid-
dle, harmonica, bass and a cou-
ple of guitars? Place it under a
velvet night sky with a sprin-
kling of stars, the smoky aroma
and sounds of a crackling fire
and the occasional hoot of an
owl. Add it all up and you've
got a night of delightful music
at Highlands Hammock State
Park.
The Friends of Highlands
Hammock will welcome the
return of the Back Porch
Revival and their friends, the
Darlin' Corey band at 7 p.m.
Saturday, Feb. 17. If you joined
us last year for the first Heritage
Social BBQ at the park, you
have already enjoyed the great
mountain ballads and tradition-
al tunes from the Back Porch
Revival's Old Time String
Band.
This year they return for the


"Music in the Park" concert in
the picnic area Feb. 17. Their
sweet and sassy old time music
is loaded with bounce and
humor. Back Porch Revival's a
five-piece group that has per-
formed together for more than
15 years. They have performed
many times at the prestigious
Florida Folk Festival, and in
1995, they were honored by the
folk music coni.munity as the
top vocal group at the Pioneer
Florida Old Time Music
Championship. Again in 1996,
they took this honor at this
yearly competition held in Dade
City.
The band features Jim
Robertson on the fiddle, guitar
and lead vocals. Jim's wife
Melanie plays an old-time frail-
ing banjo, while Melanie's
brother John McClure plays the
mandolin, occasional autoharp
and harmonica. John's wife
Ginger plays the Appalachian


lap dulcimer and pro-
vides backup vocals
along with the rest of
the group. I
Their strong
rhythms will be sure
to get your toes tap-
ping with their
award-winning tradi-
tional folk music.
Darlin' Corey, THE
which has been fea- FLi
tured at South
Florida Community Doroth
College, Disney, and
the Sebring Art
Festival, will also
perform on this night,
featuring traditional and con-
temporary old time tunes. You
can expect to hear bluegrass,
Celtic, country and of course,
old time mountain string band
styles. Jim and Melanie will
switch over to this group, with
Jim performing on the fiddle
and Melanie the claw hammer


I

y


style banjo.
Melanie learned
this unique style as an
apprentice to a master
artist under the spon-
"'? sorship of the Florida
Bureau of Folklife
and has been featured
k at the Florida Folk
Festival and on
REAL National Public
IDA Radio.
Melanie and Jim
Harris will be joined by fel-
Harris
low musicians Scott
Church and Steve
Hurst. Scott will play
guitar and provide
lead vocals. Expect virtuoso
guitar solos and a unique
rhythm style from his perform-
ance. Steve Hurst, who has per-
formed with bluegrass bands
throughout South Florida, will
perform on the bass.
This will be a wonderful
night of old time string band


music under the stars. We
encourage you to load up some
lawn chairs and blankets, grab a
flashlight and pack a picnic bas-
ket or plan to purchase dinner at
the Hammock Inn. Admission
to the concert is just $5 per per-
son, and as always, accompa-
nied children age 16 and under
are always admitted free of
charge. All concert proceeds
benefit park improvement proj-
ects and provide a wonderful
way to relax and enjoy the arts.

We hope that you will come on
out for this unique musical
experience, out here in the Real
Florida.

Bobby


McFerrin


performs


Thursday
AVON PARK A natural
wonder of the music world will
perform at the South Florida
Community College
Auditorium at 7:30 p.m.
Thursday, Feb. 8.
Bobby McFerrin, a 10-time
Grammy award winner and one
of the world's best-known
vocal innovators and improvis-
ers, will feature entirely impro-
vised music creating a one of a
kind show. He will be joined by
Voicestra, 12 uniquely gifted
singers with a very broad range
of musical styles.
Bobby McFerrin has a four-
octave range and uses his
unique vocal techniques to cre-
ate an extraordinary perform-
ance. He is a renaissance man
of the musical world, a vocal
explorer who combines jazz,
folk, and a multitude of world
music influences choral, a
cappella, and classical music -
with his own ingredients.
McFerrin is also a world-
renowned classical conductor,
the creator of one of the most
popular songs of the late 20th
century, and a passionate
spokesman for music educa-
tion. His recordings have sold
more than 20 million copies.
His collaborations have estab-
lished him in both the classical
and jazz worlds.
Throughout the 1980s,
McFerrin developed his amaz-
ing solo improvisations and
audience interactions. With a
comedian,s sense of timing and
an infectious love of every
genre of music, McFerrin creat-
ed a new kind of concert not
a performance but a communal

sharing and celebration of
music. By 1988, he had taken
his unaccompanied improvisa-
tions to Carnegie Hall and to
the premiere concert halls of
Europe and Asia, thus solidify-
ing his reputation as a musical
phenomenon.
In recent years, he has com-
bined his love of improvisation
with his conducting skills,
extending his vocal journeys to
larger groups of singers,
whether trained or not.
McFerrin's concerts have
always included audience par-
ticipation. McFerrin sees them
not as singalongs but as a gen-
uine collaborative process of
making music in the moment.
McFerrin maintains a dual
career as a conductor and vocal-
ist and as a passionate


spokesman for music educa-
tion, he continues to bring
music to children, whether in
his own improvised concerts or
in special orchestral programs.
McFerrin is co-sponsored by
Florida Hospital Heartland
Division.

Artist's work chosen to represent Lake Wales Art Show


Sunday, February 4, 2007 o7B


Rain barrel recycling


LAKE WALES The Lake
Wales Art Show Committee
bestows honor to one of their
own this year by selecting Judy
Giles to create the artwork that
is being used to represent the
36th Annual Lake Wales Art
Show.
Giles has been an employee
of the Lake Wales Art Center
for 10 years. She started work at
the center as an office clerk and
now serves as the assistant
director.
Giles is an emerging artist
whose work is garnering
respect among her peers and
recognition in the local area.
She regularly participates in
competitions such as the Lake
Wales Municipal Art Shows,
the Ridge Art Show and most
recently, the Annual Frostproof
Art League Show where she
wow the Best of Show award.
Her work is also on display at
theCitizens Bank and Trust in
Dundee.
One of the driving forces
behind this selection is the
sheer passion and enthusiasm
Giles exudes about her new
found hobby. Though her father
was an accomplished commer-
cial artist, it was not until 2001
when Giles began to study art
and painting at the Lake Wales
Art Center under the tutelage of
various respected local artists
including Tom Freeman and
Lois Kimball. She continues to
take these classes and actively
encourages others to join in the

Show.


personal talent exploration.
Giles has found a talent for por-
traits and still-life paintings she
creates using acrylics that also
reflect her fondness for bright
and cheerful colors. In the end
though, Giles said: "I paint,
simply for the joy of it."
The art show became a two-
day show last year and it was
early on that first Sunday morn-
ing of the show that Giles began
to form the idea for this year's
artwork. Using a palette of
brightly colored acrylics, "the


scene depicts two children
arriving at the site early, before
the crowds and hurrying toward
the tents where artwork is dis-
played. It also shows off the
new circular tent arrangement
under the magnificent oaks of
Lake Wailes."
Giles joins a distinguished
group of artists whose work has
represented this critically
acclaimed show that draws
audiences from throughout the
South. Among the most notable
previous artists from local area


are: Carol Conti, Kathy Futral,
Tom Freeman, Ann Norton,
Jamie Christoph and Larry
Rhoades.
The Lake Wales Art Show
distinguishes itself in finding
talented new artists who have
become nationally renowned.
Maybe Giles will be the next to
be discovered.
As is the custom, the artwork
created by Giles will be used to
promote the art show in adver-
tisements, on postcards and
posters as well as T-shirts that
will be sold as a fund-raiser for
the event. T-shirts are $12 each
and are available at the Lake
Wales Art Center, 1099 State
Road 60 East, or call (863) 676-
8426 and the Gallery and Frame
Shop, 249 E Stuart Ave., or call
(863) 676-2821.
The art show falls on March
24 and 25 this year. The public
is invited to stroll the "walk of
art" under a canopy of oak and
sky, set against the backdrop of
the beautiful Lake Wailes
National Audubon birding trail.
On display will be extraordi-
nary examples of fine art paint-
ings of acrylic, oil and water-
color as well as sculpture, pho-
tography, superb basketry,
wood, pottery, glass, jewelry,
ceramics and more.
Food, music and a special
children's activity area make
for an experience the whole
family will enjoy. All, are invit-
ed. There is no admission fee
and no charge for parking.


New art class for children begins Feb. 12

About a third of those attending the Florida-Friendly
Landscaping Workshop and Native Plant Sale at South Florida
Community College's Hardee campus Saturday, Jan. 27, went
home with recycled rain barrels they can use to store rainwater
that they can later apply to lawns and gardens. The use of such
barrels can conserve groundwater. Another 20 barrels, along
with specimens of native plants, will be given away at a follow-up
workshop this last Saturday at SFCC's DeSoto campus in
Arcadia. The workshop was sponsored by the Charlotte Harbor
National Estuary Program and the Peace River Basin Board of
the Southwest Florida Water Management District in coopera-
tion with SFCC, DeSoto County Parks and Recreation, Pine Lily
Nursery, Deluxe Trees and Shrubs, and many others.


SEBRING "Capturing Art with
Nature Naturally" is the name of the art
class for children starting Feb. 12 at the
Highlands Art League. Registration is open
now through Feb. 7.
Instructor Cindy S. West is accepting up
to seven students ages 5-12. Projects
include rock painting on beautiful
Michigan rocks, mosaics on wood, turning
baby gourds into woodland creatures, and
tile painting with acrylics. West and her
assistant will supervise free time activities
by incorporating music and dance, and
being creative with shapes using balloons
and pipe cleaners.


Six classes are offered from 3:15-5:45
p.m. on Mondays, Feb 12, 19, 26, March 5,
12 and 26. There is no class the week of
March 19.
The cost is $100 for art league members
and $120 for non-members. A $20 supply
fee per student is in addition to the class
fee.
"I encourage parents to dress their chil-
dren in clothes that can take permanent
paint and mess," West said. "Cover-up T-
shirts are provided, however they don't pro-
tect everything. And we like to have fun
without the worry about getting messy."
Students will meet upstairs in the


Museum Education Building behind the
Sebring Public Library.
"We're delighted to have Cindy back
with us to teach children," Michelle
Phillips, programs and events manager for
the art league, said. "Parents have been ask-
ing for her return. Cindy's classes are
always popular because she makes learning
fun. And she's a talented artist, too."
To register for class or get more informa-
tion, visit the league's Gallery Gift Shop,
1989 Lakeview Drive. The gallery is open
from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through
Friday and from ol2-4 p.m. Saturday or
call 385-5312.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
DEP File No. 0550005-010-AC
Georgia-Pacific Corporation
Lake Placid Box Plant
Highlands County
The Florida Department of Environmental
Protection (Department) gives notice of its in-
tent to Issue an air construction permit to
Georgia-Pacific Corporation for the Lake Plac-
id Box Plant located at 400 SR 70 W, Lake
Placid, Florida, Highlands County. The permit
authorizes Georgia-Pacific Corporation to
burn No. 6 fuel oil with a maximum sulfur
content of 1% sulfur in Boilers #1 and #2 in
addition to the currently permitted No. 4 fuel
oil with a maximum sulfur content of 0.5%
sulfur. The permit also authorizes an increase
in Boilers #1 and #2 sulfur dioxide (S02) and
particular matter (PM) emissions. This facility
is a Synthetic Non-Title V source and Synthet-
ic Minor source of Pollutants. The facility will
maintain pollutant emissions below Title V
classification by limiting the amount of fuel
burned.
The Department will issue the Final permit
with the attached conditions unless a re-
sponse received in accordance with the fol-
lowing procedures results in a different deci-
sion or significant change of terms or condi-
tions.
The Department will accept written com-
ments concerning the proposed permit issu-
ance action for a period of fourteen days from
the date of publication of this Public Notice of
Intent to Issue Air Construction Permit. Writ-
ten comments should be provided to the De-
partment of Environmental Protection, Post
Office Box 2549, Fort Myers, Florida 33902-
2549. Any written comments filed shall be
made available for public inspection. If written
comments received result in a significant
change in the proposed agency action, the De-
partment shall revise the proposed permit and
require, if applicable, another Public Notice.
The Department will issue the permit with
the attached conditions unless a timely peti-
tion for an administrative hearing is filed pur-
suant to Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S,
before the deadline for filing a petition. The
procedures for petitioning for a hearing are

Mediation is not available in this proceed-
ing.
A person whose substantial interests are

(hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
F.S. The petition must contain the information
set forth below and must be filed (received) in

cy action may file a petition within fourteen
days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the
date of publication. A petitioner shall mail a
copy of the petition to the applicant at the ad-
dress indicated above at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file a petition within
the appropriate time period shall constitute a
waiver of that person's right to request an ad-
ministrative determination (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to inter-
vene in this proceeding and participate as a
party to it. Any subsequent intervention will be

And Another
Thing ...
Dan Hoehne


Mother Nature

provides super

reality check
It is a time like this that
brings even we most ardent
sports fanatics back to reality.
Here it was, the eve of the
Super Bowl, with my home-
town team no less, just three
hours southeast of here.
Yet in the wee hours of this
Friday morning, two hours
north of here, Florida citizens
were awakened by horror and
tragedy.
The line of storms that pro-
duced hail, straight-line wind
shear and numerous tornados
ripped through north central
Florida, devastating business-
es, homes and lives.
Suddenly the Bears and
Colts don't seem as important
as the residents of Lady Lake,
Deland and other areas hit hard
by the storms.
Which is yet another
reminder that as much as I love
the world of sports, as much as
I divest myself into it and have
made a career of it, it is just one
facet o0 life.
And to many people, not
even a very big one.
Having been out to the
Sebring International Raceway
for my first time recently, I
called family members and
friends to tell of the experience.
I also mentioned that Danica
Patrick had been there as well,
and I had somehow missed her.
"Who?"
Four out of five dentists may
recommend a certain sugarless
gum, but four out of the five
people I mentioned that name
to had no idea who I was talk-
ing about.
I hadn't thought she was big
just in racing circles, as I had-
n't been a huge race fan but had
still heard plenty about this
woman breaking into the
Indycar racing circuit.
But I suppose there are many
out there who aren't into racing
that much and who don't wake
up to the sounds of ESPN
radio.
Similarly, the mention of
Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith,
two legends of the NFL and
owners of some of the biggest
records in the sport, brings this
response from my mom.
"Oh I know them, they were
on 'Dancing with the Stars' and
I was so glad Emmitt won, he
was my favorite."
Interviews with each player
reveal that the fame they knew
as football players paled in
comparison to the recognition
they are now getting.
Point being, as much as
sports are a huge part of my
life, and as much as an escape
and enjoyment and passion
they can be for many of us,
they do take a back seat to
many things in life.
And so on this biggest day of
the sports fans' calender, where
we will be cheering on such
names as Adewale Ogunleye
and Thomas Jones, Bob
Sanders. and Dominic Rhodes,
enjoy the day, celebrate and
root your team on.
But also step back for a
moment as you flip the burgers
on the grill, reflect before you
dip another chip and give a
thought and a prayer to our
neighbors up north.

Quite A Night'


Avon Park, Sebring combine to win eight

district titles and send 19 to regional meet


By SCOTT DRESSEL
scott.dressel@newssun. corn
HAINES CITY While a Polk
County team may have won the
District 8-1A title Friday night at
Haines City High School, it was
Highlands County that proved to be the
dominating force.
Out of 14 weight class finals, 11. had
either an Avon Park or Sebring wrestler in
them and one, the 171-pound bout, was an
all-Highlands County affair.
And, out of those 14 district champions,
eight wore either Avon Park red (actually,
k it was black) or Sebring blue four


from each team and a total of 19
local wrestlers advanced to the
regional meet that opens Friday at
South Florida Community College.
That added up to a second-place fin-
ish for Avon Park, just nine points
behind three-time champ Lake Wales,
and a.third place for Sebring.
To put things in perspective, Polk County,
which had four schools at the meet, sent 24
wrestlers to-regional, just five more than the
two Highlands Count schools.
For the Red Devils, in just their second

Devils close with 5th straight win

AVON PARK It was fit-
ting that Avon Park's final reg-
ular-season game of the season
Friday was senior night, con-
sidering the growth and matu-

That surge forward continued
as the Red Devils won their
fourth straight game to close
out the season with a 76-64 win

seven different Devils marking
the scoring column on the way
to a 24-15 difference for the
quarter that swelled the lead to

The senior night occasion
really showed itself in the third
period, where Hilton went wild
to blow the game open.

Senior Jarius Hilton drilled a

A Joshua Hickey jumper
evened things up again, before

Howard Carney had two hits and
belted a home run for Miller.
Ray Hensley felt there was not
much to boast about, but gave
Ltiby's credit for playing a really
good game. In turn, Marvin Strope
gave his team credit for a complete
game effort. It is rare that two man-
agers would be complimentary of
each other's players, but Luby's and

HISTORY LESSON

5 YEARS AGO
Feb 3, 2002: Sebring's Richie Cormier came through with an RBI single that proved to be the game-
winner in South Florida Community College's 8-7 win over Daytona Beach Community College.Trailing
6-5 in the bottom of the seventh, the Panthers' Bo Dring knocked in a run to tie the score before Cormier
brought Dring home with the winning run.
25 YEARS AGO
Feb. 5, 1982: Behind Kim Disbro's 30 points, the Lake Placid girls basketball team had little trouble
with the Lady Blue Streaks in a 61-40 win. Averaging 19 points per game for the season, Disbro helped
the Lady Dragons jump out to a 22-6 first quarter lead from which Sebring would never recover.

DISTRICT
Continued from ID
year as a program, the runner-up finish was
something to celebrate, especially since they
were just a couple of wins away from pulling
off a major upset.
"We got 10 kids to regional, so we're
thrilled," Avon Park co-head coach Lee Elder
said. "We only brought 11 and 10 made it, so
we can't ask for much more than that. We've
come a long way."
A long way is from sixth out of eight at last
year's district to second this year and from no
district champions last season to four.
Jason Roman got the honor of being Avon
Park's first ever district champion, winning
the 135-pound title with a 3-2 decision over
John Riff of Lake Wales.
He celebrated the history making accom-
plishment by promptly dropping the blue rib-
bon when it was handed to him on the top step
of the podium.
"I guess I was so happy and tired my fingers
didn't grip it," Roman said. "I'm extremely
happy and I thank God he provided me with
this opportunity."
Roman was soon joined by 152-pounder
Kemosi Hatten, James Bland (160 pounds)
and Josue Ortiz (215) as the first class of Red
Devil champions, while teammates Steven
Acevedo (second at 125 pounds), Christian
Diaz (second, 130), Omar Torres (fourth, 145),
Jonathan Fils (second, 171), Isuel Guzman
(third, 189) and Jose Guatier (third, 275) also
qualified for regional.
"We were expecting four (champions),"
Elder said. "We were hoping for six, but it did-
n't work out that way. We had one surprise
finalist with Christian Diaz ... so him finishing
second was a huge bonus for us."
Fils' defeat in the 171-pound final came at
the hands of Sebring's James Boone, who took
a hard-fought, 4-3 decision. Dustin

The Red Devils show off their first piece of district hardware Friday night after finishing second.in the
District 8-1A meet at Haines City.


Drummond (112 pounds), Ronnie Sliwicki
(119) and Tim Mikula (189) also won district
titles, while teammates Aren Vogel (second,
140), Shaanan Spiegel (second, 145), Alvin
Moore (third, 152), Ricardo Barton (fourth,
160) and Andrew Crump (third, 215) also
advanced.
The only reason Sebring didn't have a fifth
district title was the fact that Spiegel, a heavy
favorite, decided to skip the final due to the
fact he had been battling a nasty stomach bug
the entire day.
Mikula, last year's state runner-up, won his
third straight district title in convincing fash-
ion with an 11-1 major decision over Bartow's
Mark Keeley.
"I expected to win," the always confident


Mikula said. "For about four or five weeks,
Bartow's team and their coaches were.talking
about how I was going to get my butt handed
to me. I told them, 'You're just making it
worse on yourself.' I went out there and did
exactly like I planned."
But the story of the night was the success of
the young Avon Park program and the county
in general .
"It was a good day for us," Avon Park co-
head coach Ed Brown said. "I'm real proud of
my boys. They did an excellent job and they
represented Avon Park High School well."
"Eight champs out of the 14 from the two
schools, that ain't bad," Sebring coach Dave
Cunningham said. "That shows you which
county is the best."

DEVILS
Continued from 1D
Two straight scores opened the quarter, and
a three-point play came a couple minutes
later.
Hilton soon followed his own misses for
scores, twice, to sandwich another inside
move for two on his way to 13 points for the
period, matching the Lake Placid team total
and making it a 59-41 game.
The lead had actually ballooned to 22
points late in the third, but the Dragons
showed signs of life, bridging the third and
fourth quarters with an eight-point run to
cause some doubt:
Virgil Cooper broke the run with a three-
point play and a rainbow floater, but Hickey
caught fire with two jumpers and a 3-pointer.
But Beadle scored twice inside and Nobles
powered in for a hoop that pushed the lead to
a safe distance with the clock ticking down.
"Jarius was really pumped up for this
game," Zwayer said of Hilton, who tallied 20
points and 15 rebounds on the night. "With it
being senior night, he was ready for a big
game."
Matching Hilton in scoring for the Devils
was Cooper, who poured in 20 points himself,
while Xavier Caldwell chipped in with nine.
Up next in the district tournament for Avon
Park is a matchup with Palmetto, which top-
pled the Devils twice this season, by 10
points each time.
"They're an experienced team, a very good
team," Zwayer said. "Both. those games were
closer than the score showed, tight games that
with their veteran leadership, they pulled
away at the end."
"But we're just going to try to push the
ball, play up-tempo, which feeds our defen-
sive intensity," he continued. "We just want
to win each possession, and hopefully when
they are all added up, we'll come out on top."
