Fired internal

$14k settlement

Discrimination claim and lawsuit

SEBRING A month before Clerk of Courts L.E. "Luke" '.
Brooker decided to audit the Highlands County Library System,
he fired his director of Compliance and Internal Audits.
Mia Frances Robertson's Jan. 12, 2005, termination resulted
in a $14,500 settlement after she filed a complaint with the
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission then filed suit in
federal court, according to documents obtained by the News-
Sun.
Robertson said she was fired when she took 50 days off of
work under the Family and Medical Leave Act due to a "per-
sonal crisis."
"Men who took'FMLA were not fired as a result of their tak-
ing personal, annual or FMLA (leave)," Robertson said in her
May, 12, 2005, complaint.
She alleged that her time away from work got her in trouble
with her immediate supervisor Bob Jamison, senior director of
business services.
She took leave Sept. 10, 2004; for her family crisis and
returned Oct. 25, for which her coworkers donated personal time
to help her.
"While I was out on personal leave ... my children became ill
with high fevers and other illnesses," Robertson said, claiming Avon Park Code Enforcement officers Greg Warner and Marnita English talk about their first month on the job Thursday afternoon.

Robertson!s children were homeschooled by an ex-husband

SHS cheerleaders read to chase national title


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING The competition is
fierce, though the results may be
hard to measure.
Such is the world of competitive
cheerleading that the Sebring squad
will be facing this weekend in
Orlando during the National High
School Cheerleading Champion-
ships.
"This isn't like other sports," head
coach Caroline Shoemaker said.
"It's not like a basketball player


making a basket, or a soccer player
scoring a goal. In this, you have six
people judging you who have to like
your routine and compare it to how
another team performed its routine.
It's very much mental at this stage
and it's all about executing on the
mat and keeping it clean."
Shoemaker would know, as she
has been a cheerleading coach for 21
years and has watched her program,
and the sport, grow to new heights.
Her first team to make it to nation-
als was in 1999, and they moved into


the top 10 each of the last two years,
finishing ninth both times.
"We have usually four competi-
tions during the year, but this is the
one we really shoot for," Shoemaker
said. "You have to qualify through
one of the state regionals, so it's no
easy road to get back."
And yet back they are going to the
competition that, as Shoemaker said,
"is bigger and harder every year."
So large, 'in fact, that it will be
hosted at the Disney Wide World of


Sports complex and the MGM
Indiana Jones venue.
"There will be about 8,000 cheer-
leaders there from all over the coun-
try," Shoemaker said. "It starts at 9
a.m. Saturday, runs all day Saturday
and all day Sunday."
Teams have already started arriv-
ing in Orlando for the competition,
while the 57-member Sebring squad
will take advantage of the proximity
to home and head up today, where
the hope is to take the next step and
crack the top five.


Shoemaker is also on the Florida
High School Athletic Association
advisory panel, where progress is
being made toward having competi-
tive cheerleading as an official sport.
"It's moving that way, which will
be good for teams in theftate," she
said. "It will help with Title IX;as far
as gender balance in sports, and it
will also give a lot more structure for
coaches, which will help a lot with
safety issues."

SEBRING .- The road to
the Heartland Idol Junior semi-
final competition wasn't too
bumpy Thursday night.
Because of a lack of partici-
pants, all nine singers who
entered Thursday's second and
final qualifying round earned a
trip to Saturday night's semifi-
nal competition, as well as two
free fair tickets.
Five singers participated in
the Junior division (for ages 12
and under), including the first
male entrant Christopher
Hawthorne, 11, from Hill-
Gustat Elementary School.
Hawthorne overcame micro-
phone difficulties to perform a
soulful rendition of the Marvin
Gaye classic "I Heard It
Through the Grapevine."
Sarah Liles, 12, of Sebring,
went the country route, per-
forming the Sara Evans' hit

SEBRING County com-
missioners moved forward
Tuesday in their consideration
to donate 20 acres of land to
Habitat for Humanity.
At $20,000 per acre, the par-
cel at the end of Sheriff's Tower
Road near the under-construc-
tion sports complex is valued at
$400,000. The commission
wanted to weigh pros and cons
of the impact of a sand mine for
a possible asphalt plant versus
low-income housing.
"What is best for the commu-
nity?" commissioner Barbara
Stewart wanted to know, but
said insufficient information
was provided.
The board voted unanimous-
ly to declare the acreage surplus
and issue a request for propos-
.als that would include condi-
tions to limit future develop-

ment to "affordable" housing.
Cool said the site is not nec-
essary for mining if the county
decides to build an asphalt plant
(which would take advantage of
naturally occurring landfill
gases currently wasted), but he
noted the land is a source of
"good sand."
Other options included buy-
ing the sand through a bid
process, mining sand from the
current landfill on Arbuckle
Creek Road and two former
landfills in the county, buying
property that contains the
desired sand type, or entering
into a lease agreement with a
property owner to mine.
"All options have some merit
and further reinforce the con-
cept that owning a sand pit can
reduce the cost to produce hot
mix asphalt," Ken Wheeler,
solid waste director, said in a
memorandum to Cool.


Habitat for Humanity execu-
tive director Jane Breylinger
envisions building 28 single-
family homes with 12 recre-
ation vehicle sites, a bathhouse
with laundry and a 12,000-
square-foot warehouse with
offices.
In a few months, Habitat will
move its offices from an Avon
Park bank to its supply store in
Sebring.
If Habitat receives the land,
more than a year will pass
before it could occupy its new
office, Breylinger said.
As the onl.1, ion-profit
agency in Higllaiind, 1t pr. ide
first-time home ownership to
low- and very low-income earn-
ers, Habitat would be the front
runner in the bidding.
"They format the bid so that
it'll address certain issues,"
Breylinger said, explaining that


the commission board likely
will allow only non-profits to
compete and will require a min-
imum number of units be built
in a specified time frame.
The warehouse, Breylinger
explained, would serve two
purposes storage of some
$25,000 in donated appliances
and supplies per house and a
place for prefabricating walls
before they're taken to a site.
In addition, the indoor facili-
ty will allow construction to
continue despite inclement
weather, she said, which would
allow more homes to be built
laster-and would add more
Highlands residents to the
county's tax rolls.
Breylinger said volunteers
come from across Florida and
the country to help build homes.
The RV camp and bathhouse
would house these people, who


currently stay at the 4-H
Cloverleaf Camp in Lake
Placid.
"The mission is more hous-
es," Breylinger said, noting that
if some other entity won the
contract, it would still benefit
the county.
Stewart surmised that
nobody would want to live near
a sand mine, with an estimated
daily average of three truck
loads of sand being hauled
away, if the county held the par-
cel for the still-in-discussion
asphalt plant.
The positive impact to sur-
rounding homes likely would
exceed the county's $400,000
donation, Stewart said.
"We spoke from what we
thought," Stewart later said.
"But it sure would have been
nice to have the professional
planner's input."


The Girl Scouts will deliver
the certificates and cookies to
the charitable organization
after the direct sales period.
This is a great way for both
Girl Scouts and community
members to give back to the
community.
Thousands of girls of Girl
Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida
will sharpen their marketing
skills as they provide the
community with a special
treat Girl Scout cookies ...
and this year, cookies with
zero trans fat per serving. In
response to customers'
requests, all eight varieties of
Girl Scout cookies now have
zero trans fat per serving.
Cookies are available for a
cost of $3.50 per package and

Work crews had a bird's eye view as they began putting a new roof on the Highlands Museum of
the Arts Monday morning, down near the City Pier.


Romance & Chocolate Festival is Saturday


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The historic
Kenilworth Lodge will pres-
ent the second annual
Romance & Chocolate
Festival from 10 a.m. to 3
p.m. Saturday. The show will
feature sampling of 12 gour-
met chocolates, chocolate
fountain, homemade choco-
late, chocolate coffee bar,
Valentine floral arrangements,
romantic dining, and facials,
couples photography and
more.
It will also both pamper
couples and assist them in
choosing the perfect gift for
their special Valentine.
Admission to the show is $3
and includes chocolate sam-
pling.
The festival will be set up
so that attendees may pur-
chase gifts at the show or, in
some instances, arrange for
their delivery on Valentines
Day. It will be a fun, pamper-
ing experience for the ladies
and a one-stop experience for
the guys to find exactly what
'will-mnake their Valentine
smile. Other fun will include


a chocolate fountain, choco-
late coffee bar, voting for a
favorite romantic movie, test-
ing chocolate knowledge in
the Chocolate Trivia Contest
and more.
Participating exhibits
include: Ridge Florist, Jeni's
on Southlake Restaurant,
Barbara Thayer-Mary Kay
Cosmetics, Mark Delaney
Photography, Wild Artist
Jewelry, Personal Chef of
Highlands County and
Kenilworth Lodge. The
exhibitors at the show are all
local companies that provide
services in the county.
In the United States, choco-
late candy outsells all other
candy combined by a 2 to 1
ratio. Valentine's Day is the
favorite holiday to give
chocolate. Chocolate is close-
ly associated with romance,
but a lesser known fact is that
chocolate, which contains the
same flavonoid phenolics that
are in red wine, can be good
for the heart.
The United States is the
world's largest producer' of
chocolate, with production of


seven billion pounds manu-
factured each year. United
States citizens consume ten
pounds per year, per person as
compared to the Swiss who
consume a whopping twenty-
two pounds per year, per per-
son.
The Kenilworth Lodge's
chocolate tasting exhibit
includes milk, dark, dark milk
and infused chocolates. This
year there will be a choice
between a blind tasting with
12 different varieties, so that
participants will be more like-
ly to discover their favorite
type of chocolate. New this
year for the person who
prefers more quantity than
variety in chocolate there will
be an Express Taste with a
larger labeled taste of four
different chocolates. There
will also be individual bars of
chocolate and a make-your-
own gift baskets for sale at
the show.

Joshua Altersberger indicted Monday in trooper shooting


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING The Sebring
man accused of shooting and
killing Florida Highway Patrol
Sgt. Nicholas Sottile was
indicted Monday for first-
degree murder.
Joshua Lee Altersberger, 19,
could receive the death penalty
if convicted of the Jan. 12
shooting during a traffic stop on
U.S. 27 between Sebring and
Lake Placid.
According to the FHP, Sottile
stopped Altersberger for care-


less driving.
When he approached
Altersberger car, passenger and
possible accomplice Quintin
Jerome Kinder fled east into a
Lykes Brothers grove.
A witness in a tractor trailer
allegedly saw Kinder running
away, then saw the driver of the
car shoot Sottile, according to a
probable cause affidavit.
After the trooper fell to the
ground, the suspect later
identified as Altersberger -
allegedly fired another round
from the window, but at whom


or what is not indicated in the
court documents.
As with any shooting of a
law enforcement officer, the
suspects at large became a mat-
ter of regional concern and fed-
eral, state and surrounding local
agencies descended upon
Highlands County to assist in
the manhunt.
According to the FHP, both
suspects were arrested early
Jan.- 13 Altersberger at his
Sebring home and Kinder in an
orange grove northeast of
where the shooting occurred.


Kinder allegedly gave state-
ments to investigators that
implicated Altersberger in the
shooting.
"Altersberger stated he was
going to shoot the trooper,"
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement Special Agent
Vaden S. Pollard said in his
statement referencing his inter-
view with Kinder.
Kinder told Pollard that he
ran because he feared for his
own life.
According to documents in
Altersberger's case file, he


invoked his right to remain
silent.
But, according to a witness
the News-Sun spoke with Jan.
15, Altersberger allegedly post-
ed a MySpace.com message
that apparently mocked
Sottile's death.
Then, Altersberger and the
witness (who was subpoenaed
for a January hearing) went to
several friends' homes, where
Altersberger allegedly bragged
about killing Sottile.

LORIDA Elizabeth
Tucker, 79, of Sebring, remains
at Highlands Regional Medical
Center in stable condition
Tuesday, after being involved in
a one car crash at about 11 a.m.
Monday.
She was the sole occupant in
the 2001 Buick.
According to Trooper Jay
Spencer, of the Florida
Highway Patrol, Tucker lost
control of her vehicle while
going east on U.S. 98. She
veered onto the highway's
shoulder, first hit a road marker
and then came to a rest against

Avon Park man

dies in crash
AVON PARK No charges
will be filed in the vehicle
death of an Avon Park man,
according to a Florida Highway
Patrol report.
Diornedes M. Pagan, 57,
failed to yield, Cpl. Roger B
Crews said in his report, and
pulled off of Highlands
Boulevard into the path of Ford
pickup that was southbound on
U.S. 27.
The accident occurred at
7:55 p.m. Tuesday. Pagan was
pronounced dead at Florida
Hospital Heartland Division at
10:10 p.m.
Pickup driver James M.

fered minor injuries, the troop-
er said.


Arbuckle Creek Bridge, by the
entrance to Neibert's Fish
Camp.
Johanna Shaw and her hus-
band Everett had been at the
entrance to the Dollar Store
parking lot in SpringLake, wait-
ing to turn onto U.S. 98, when
they saw Tucker drive by.
"She was all over the road,
going fast," Shaw said, "like
she had blacked out or had a
stroke or something like that.


"My husband, who is a vol-
unteer with the Lorida
Volunteer Fire Department,
knew right away something was
wrong, and we high tailed it
behind her. She was weaving on
and off the road, sometimes
going into the opposite lane. We
were just hoping she wouldn't
hit another car."
After about a mile, Shaw said
she saw the tractor trailer trav-
eling immediately, behind


Tucker, and right in front of her,
pull even and box in Tucker's
vehicle so it was forced into the
guardrail, which finally stopped
the car.
"That's what I assume hap-
pened, because that's what I
saw," she said, adding, the truck
driver had gone on his way
once Tucker's car was stopped.
Shaw and her husband pulled
over, her husband notifying the
fire department, which respond-


ed to the scene.
Tucker was transported from
the accident to the hospital by
ambulance.

"The Secret"
The Secret has existed throughout the history of mankind. It has been discovered, covet-
ed, suppressed, hidden, lost and recovered. It has been hunted down, stolen, and bought
for vast sums of money. Now for the first time in history, The Secret is being revealed to
the world and is being studied and practiced at Unity of Sebring.
A number of exceptional men and women discovered The Secret, and went on to become
known as the greatest people who ever lived. Among them: Plato, Leonardo, Galileo,
Napoleon, Hugo, Beethoven, Lincoln, Edison, Einstein and Carnegie, to name but a few.
Fragments of The Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions
and philosophies throughout the centuries. For the first time, all the pieces of The Secret
come together in an incredible revelation which is life transforming for all who practice it.
The Secret reveals amazing real life stories and testimonials of regular people who have
changed their lives in profound ways. By applying The Secret they present instances of
eradicating disease, acquiring massive wealth, overcoming obstacles and achieving what
many would regard as impossible.

currently in the process of
securing the land.
This is a much needed devel-
opment for Lake Placid, as well
as Highlands County, and it will
only be accomplished with the
financial support of the com-
munity, said Eileen May, chief
executive officer of the cham-
ber.
The first fund-raiser for the
proposed community center
will be held Saturday, March
24, at the Lake Placid Elks
Lodge. The event is sponsored
by Highlands Regional Medical
Center. The entertainment will
be performed by Marti
Capodiferro, who is a profes-


sional singer and entertainer
and the owner with her husband
of Andy's Hot Dog World.
Marti Capodiferro has been
performing since 1977. She has
been in Broadway type shows,
revues,
operas, con-
tests, and
children's
theater. She
has been a
karaoke
hostess, per-
formed for
Weddings,
CAPODIFERRO funerals,
and sport-
ing events.
She started singing in a
church choir, and through the
years has learned to put an
uplifting tone in just about
everything she shares with her
audience. And share she does
- her whole heart and soul


pour forth in her music. It does-
n't matter what genre she is
singing rock, pop,
Broadway, opera, gospel, jazz,
and blues or what language
- English, Latin, Italian,
Spanish, French, Hebrew,
Yiddish, Capodiferro takes the
audience with her in every
song.
The Capodiferros have
recently moved to Lake Placid
from Miami, and both of them
are happy to be a part of the
friendly and growing communi-
ty.
Capodiferro is honored and
grateful to share her musical
gifts with everyone here and
looks forward to taking all of
you on many musical journeys
in the future.
Tickets are available for sale
at the chamber. Cost for the
prime rib dinner show is $50
per person.

SEBRING The last day
of March, hundreds df fund-
raising Highlands County
WalkAmerica residents will
present to the March of Dimes
thousands of dollars to be
invested in saving children
born prematurely. And, there
are thousands of babies born
long before the end of the
nine-month human gestation
period, roughly 37-40 weeks.
The last 10-or-so weeks,
babies grow rapidly, not only
in size, but also in the knitting
together of the internal organs
so babies can survive outside
the womb.
Imagine a baby at about the
27th week, weighing about a
pound, tiny enough to fit in
someone,s hand
"Premature babies are real-
ly low birth weight and they
are born at about 27 weeks, or
before," Highlands/Hardee
Community Director Erica


Lavely explained. Before
babies reach 22 weeks,
today's medicine cannot pro-
duce surviving premature
babies not yet anyway -
while premature births con-
tinue to increase.
Lavely's daughter,
Madison, born at 24 weeks, is
now almost 3 years old.
Highlands County's Walk-
America ambassador,
Stephanie Taylor, was born at
23 weeks and is 15 years old,
a Sebring High School fresh-
man and member of the varsi-
ty co-ed cheerleading squad.
With soaring premature
birth rates, many doctors
anticipate advances in therapy
to help meet the survival chal-
lenge preemiess" face.
It took about 20 years for
the nation's premature
birthrate to reach today's 1 in
9 births more than 400,000
infants born prematurely
in 2006. Preterm and low-
birth weight infants often face


long-term disabilities, includ-
ing physical, mental, and
emotional challenges.
At Highlands Hammock
State Park, Saturday, March
31, WalkAmerica registration
begins at 8 a.m., the walk
begins at 9, and Lavely is
organizing a barbecue appre-
ciation party served at the end
of the walk.
This year, fund raisers may
register on line at www.
walkamerica. org/300929.
"If you're not fund-raising
on line, you will want to bring
your sponsorship envelope
with all of the money that
you've collected to turn in
that day, whether you're
involved in a team or walking
as an individual," Lavely
said. "The money will be
counted, and we have differ-
ent prizes for amounts of
money that's raised."
The money goes to March
of Dimes, which disperses the
money according to need.

CLEANUP
Continued from 1A
while originally from South
Miami, served in the city's
police department for 20 years.
Both said firmly they are
about solving problems, not
creating them.
"When we're dealing with
people we try to be as fair as we
know how to be," Warner said.
"We're here to help. We want to
form partnerships. We're look-
ing for voluntary compliance."
English agreed. "You want to
have a good rapport," she said,
"it's better that way, much bet-
ter. Your intent isn't to brow
beat anyone, it's to assist."
Warner and English see edu-
cation as being the most impor-
tant part of their job.
Most people simply aren't
familiar with the city's restric-
tions and standards, they said.
Explain what is out of code,
give people a reasonable time to
respond, and usually the prob-
lem is solved, Warner added.
He told about walking down
a block one morning, saying
hello and announcing who he
was and what he was doing to
residents as he passed by.


It was all very informal and
friendly, he said. He didn't
write a single citation. Yet,
when he happened to return
later in the day, one homeowner
had already made the minor
repair Warner had suggested.
"With most people all you have
to do is show up," he said.
It isn't difficult to become
informed, the officers said.
Copies of the two new ordi-
nances being- prepared for
action are currently posted on
the city's Web site.
Copies of the entire code are
kept at the code enforcement
office, in the city council build-
ing at 123 E. Pine St., behind
city hall. Citizens are welcome
to come and refer to them.
Warner and English will also
give courtesy inspections, let-
ting property owners know
what needs to be fixed. "Certain
things take precedence over
other things," Warner said.
As to what is covered by the
city code, there is a general, but
not absolute, rule of thumb if
code officers can see it from the
street, it's a part of their beat.
Warner emphasized that code
violations occur all over the
city. There is no one area more
run down then the rest, he said.


Instead, there are problems that
affect everyone everywhere.
For example, address num-
bers on buildings have to be at
least two and a half inches high
and in good repair.
Signs posted where they
shouldn't be, like garage sale
signs, are a particular problem.
City code states that signs
may not be attached to utility
poles at all, or set up on city
right-of-ways. But so many
people ignore, or are unaware
of the rule, Warner said, that
one day a week is devoted to
doing nothing but removing
illegal signs.
During a recent tour of the
city, Warner pointed to several
utility poles with signs posted
on them. The signs had
appeared overnight he said, and
he knew this for a fact because
he had just cleared the poles off
the day before.
Another major code enforce-
ment challenge involves vehi-
cles of every kind meaning
boats, trailers and motorcycles
as well as trucks and cars.
That is because the city code
does not allow for shade tree
mechanics. Vehicles out in the
open may not be up on blocks,
or be without their engines,

Teen Idol semi-finalists Alexis Meyers (from left), 13, Jaimee Moore, 17, Jessica Dellacossa, 14, and
Kandiss Moore, 14, are applauded for their efforts Thursday evening after performing at the Heartland
Idol Junior competition at the Circle in Sebring.

Brooks, 10, of Sebring, was a
last minute entrant, and she
advanced by singing No

reinstatement or front pay,
attorney fees and costs, and any
relief the court granted.
Public Risk Management of
Florida retained by the
Board of County
Commissioners for liability
insurance provided the labor
attorneys, a service available to
all the constitutional officers,
Jamison said.
Though he settled, Brooker
acknowledged no wrong
doing, Jamison said.
"We were advised by the
labor attorneys that this was the
most economical way to handle
this particular case," he said,
explaining that winning a court
battle might have cost more
money.
Robertson was awarded
$14,500, according to a Public
Risk Management of Florida,
which covers the settlement
and her attorney fees. The
clerk's attorney fees were
$33,764 for a total cost of
$48,264 spent by Public Risk
Management to address the
lawsuit.
Jamison said Robertson was
fired for her work performance,
not because of the leave she
had taken.
"Mia had to miss so much
time that I shifted the audit
responsibility over to me," he
said, explaining he gave her
non-time critical assignments.
"We tried to accommodate her
as best we could."
Robertson was "technically"
responsible for the cash han-
dling audit that resulted in the
library audit, Jamison said, not-
ing that senior internal auditor
Mary Wilson handled the for-
mer audit herself.
"It's unfortunate that situa-
tions arise to the level of litiga-
tion," Jamison said. "Only to
be settled without any wrong
doing on the part of the
employer."


old Woodlawn Elementary stu-
dents, and they coincidentally
both chose the Dixie Chicks hit
"Goodbye Earl" as their song.
Only four contestants ages
13-17 entered in the Junior Idol
Division, so none of the young
singers had to worry whether or
not they would make it to semi-
finals.
Jessica Dellacasa, 14, of
Sebring, was the first Junior
contestant to take. the stage
Thursday night. Dellacasa, who
sang the Trisha Yearwood clas-
sic "How Do I Live," possessed
one of the strongest voices of
the evening. Sebring resident
Alexis Meyers, 13, will join her
sisters Erin and Erika (who
advanced last week) in the
semifinals.
Jaimee Moore, 17, also of
Sebring, was the third singer of
the evening to tackle a Dixie
Chicks song, singing "I Can
Love You Better." Jaimee's 14-
year-old sister, Kandiss Moore,
will also be appearing in the
semifinals, advancing with her
rendition of "The Art of Letting
Go" by Mikaila.
Nine contestants from both


the Junior and Teen Idol divi-
sion will compete in Saturday
night's semifinal competition.
The show, which begin at 7
p.m., will be at the Expo
Pavilion at the fairgrounds in
conjunction with the Highlands
County Fair, and will be
emceed by David Flowers. The
top five performers in each age
group will advance to the
Saturday, Feb. 17, finals, which
will also take place at the fair-
grounds.
First prize in each division is
$500, second place will receive
$250, third place $100, fourth
place $50, and fifth place $25.
Prize money will be awarded as
saving bonds to the Junior divi-
sion champions, and as gift
cards to the Teen Idol winners.
Also announced Thursday,
the five finalists in each divi-
sion will be performing during
the Miss Highlands County and
Junior Miss Highlands County
contests. The Miss Highlands
County contest is scheduled for
7 p.m. Monday, and the Junior
Miss Highlands County pag-
eant will be the following night.


period. Or even stored in the
open without current registra-
tion. Vehicles in need of work
or proper documentation may
only be stored inside buildings.
Another problem has to do
with trash.
Warner explained that leav-
ing garbage bags out at the curb
on collection day is also a code
violation and could draw a cita-
tion. Garbage bags should be in
a trash can, with the lid firmly
shut.
Fences may cause problems
for property owners too for
one thing they must be kept in
good repair. And there are
height restrictions. In front of
the building line that means
in front of the house a fence
may be no more than four feet
tall and requires a permit to be
constructed.
Warner and English have the
authority to stop and ask to see
the permit, if they pass a job
where a fence is being put up.


Other violations concern
public health and safety, espe-
cially situations which could
become dangerous in violent
weather.
Buildings have to be main-
tained. Cracked, chipped or
flaking paint, torn screening,
broken or boarded windows,
decayed roofs or siding are all
against code.
Dilapidated property hurts a
neighborhood, Warner said.
"They bring down property val-
ues. It's pretty much a no-brain-
er," he said with a smile, "rock-
et science has nothing to do
with this."
Warner explained that cita-
tions are similar to traffic tick-
ets in the sense that one is
issued for each violation, rather
than one blanket citation cover-
ing an entire property.
For example, if an owner had
a fence falling down and two
unregistered cars sitting in his
driveway, he would receive


three separate citations.
Warner and English said they
approach owners with respect.
"We're not here to argue with
anyone," Warner said, "No one
likes to be told what to do. We
try to explain the ordinance, and
how to plan a solution. We're
problem solvers, let us help
you."
For example, they can
arrange for extensions, allow-
ing cooperating owners more
time for repairs.
Warner added that property
in any of the Community
Redevelopment Agency's three
areas is held to higher stan-
dards, but that Facade Grants
issued by the CRA are available
to help off-set the costs.
An initial citation, Warner
and English emphasized, serves
as a warning.
It is only when property own-
ers ignore the situation that fur-
ther steps are taken.

Lake







Wide variety of arts and crafts

were entered in adult competition


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID An
amazing array of wonderful
arts and crafts is entered in
the exhibits the first week-
end of February each year at
the Lake Placid Elementary
School. Artists and crafts-
men may enter any or all of
the 10 divisions in each of
which there are one to sev-.
eral classes and subclasses.
Entries were judged last
Friday with first, second,
third and honorable mention
ribbons given in all classes.
From all first place recipi-
ents in a particular class, a
Best of Class winner was
chosen to receive a Best of
Class purple and white
rosette ribbon and $10 cash.
From those Best of Class
winners, a Best of Show red,
white, and blue tri-color rib-
bon, and $25 cash was
awarded to the top entry in
that division. The adult
amateurs received a Laura
Watson Award, and the pro-
fessionals receive the Laura
Rider Award.
The outstanding quality
of many entries provides
keen competition and a real
challenge for the judges to
choose winners. On
Saturday, the exhibit visi-
tors chose their favorites in
each division for the


People's Choice awards.
Some commented on the
difficulty of judging, and
others stated they would not
have wanted to be a judge.
From the arts and crafts to
poetry, the quality of the
amateurs rivaled that of the
professionals. Money
awards were presented to
the adult winners at the
gazebo Saturday by chair-
man of the exhibits. Helen
Obenchain, and Miss Lake
Placid Sydney Stewert; pho-
tos were taken by assistant
chair Jana Filip. The
People's Choice award win-
ners received their awards
on Sunday.

Many help with

luncheon
Editor:
The Maria Dewberry
Children's Foundation
Luncheon was a huge success
this year.
The Onestroke Painters of
Highlands County presented
a check to Donna Dewberry
for $2,000 from ticket sales
and $694 from the silent auc-
tion.
We are very fortunate to
have Donna Dewberry come
to Highlands County and
share her painting talent with
us. Donna shared the new
fabric paint and instructed all
in attendance on painting a T-
shirt. This year the Knights of
Columbus catered the lunch-
eon and helped to raise
money for the local charities
that they serve in Highlands
county.
I would like to acknowl-


edge all of the people tha
helped to put this even
together. First and foremos
to Donna Dewberry and Julie
Massey, who donated her day
to come and assist Donna.
To all the Onestroke certi
fied instructors that donated
items to the silent auction
Bill and Gail Johnson
Debbie Gross, Mara Trumbo
Vicki Alley, Judy Nicewicz
and Valerie Jacobs, who also
donated the design and print-
ing of the tickets. Also
donating to the auction were
Donna Dewberry, Margie
Pollard and Wanda Kline
Donations for the door prizes
came from Wanda Kline
Sales, Nana's S'Prizes (JudI
Nicewicz), Dewberry
Designs, Inc.
I would like to acknowl
edge all those that worked
behind the scenes to help
make this event possible:

The childhood joys: of going to the fair


As we enter into the week
of the Highlands County Fair,
I recall my own thrills as a
child over the Central Florida
Fair in Orange County.
I was all of about 6 to 8
years old and recall when the
school system would let us
out for a half day, so we could
dash for the rides and fair
food. Boy howdy, that food
was something else.
I always insisted on pink
and blue cotton candy. I recall
the temptations of the sweet
sugary smells and the sticki-
ness of my fingers and hair. I
also recall the beefy, giant
corndogs that you could get
only once a year. Ketchup on
mine, please, and lots of it.
SMy older sister, Ginger, of
nine years, always got the
chore of taking me.
Considering that she probably
could have left me at the top
of the Ferris wheel, she took
good care of me.
After all, when you're age
15, 16 or 17, who vants to be
embarrassed by having her lit-
tle sister traipse behind her,
whining about this or that?
She would take me by the
hand and help me climb
aboard the merry-go-round
horses my favorite ride. I
loved the cadence of the
waltz-like, magical calliope.
Oompah pah. Oompah pah.
Oompah pah. Ooomp.
When I was younger, I was
conservative in my prefer-
ences of rides. Flying ele-
phants and the "baby" Ferris


wheel were about
my speed. When I
grew older, the more
daring I became.
The fair was
always held on the

GRANT's TOME

Kathy Grant


When I think of the Central
Florida Fair I'think of strewn
sawdust and animals. I used
to love to extend a hand to the
goats and rabbits in the pet-
ting zoo and stare at the long
eyelashes of the young calves.
Their large, brown eyes were
about as big as mine. I also
recall the fancy feathering of
the chickens and roosters in
their cages, ready to be
judged.
Somehow my sticky hands
would get matted in their soft
fur and feathers to the point
that the paper from napkins
would adhere to my dirty fin-
gers when wiped. Oh, aiid, thlie
animal smells ... well, shall
we call them somewhat odif-
erous? I used to hold a contest
against myself to see how
long I could hold my nose aind
yet go through the four-footed
beasts and fowl areas.
I remember the bright
lights and myriad colors. As
my sister would pull me


along, I would look
up at these "big
people" who would
call me to their
booths and make
promises, if only
they could guess
my weight or I
could hoist a sledge
hammer. I really did
believe that with a
little "oomph" on
my own part I could
raise that hammer.
Sometimes the


evenings' would be bitter cold,
but that would never stop us.
As I went out the door, my
mother's last words would be,
"Don't forget your sweater!"
That was a time when
Orlando was less populous.
You could call it a civil city. A
polite city. A city where you
still knew your neighbors and
it wasn't unusual to bump into
them at a gathering like this.
I don't know if the fair is
still held in the area. In the
A.M. years, it may have
become less popular, although
I would put it up against fan-
tasy rats any time of the day.
It was an occasion to which
you could set your own body.
clock once a year for
about two weeks.
I remember my friend
Andrea and I encountered a
heavy-handed gentleman in a
tent where everyone in con-
tact with him was supposed to
"Get Saved." Now I'm not
mocking God, believe you
me. I also believe in sharing


my faith. Even my own
church has a booth at the
Highlands County Fair.
But as far as this gentleman
was concerned, we weren't
leaving that tent until we pro-
fessed that we "Believed." We
answered his questions and
skedaddled at the first oppor-
tunity, scared out of our wits.
I think my last visit to the
fair was accompanied by
Andrea, during that same
time, somewhere around the
seventh or eighth grade. That
was when Mice invaded and
going to a fantasyland of a
man's making was more
enticing than the colors and
magic of fair barkers and
rides.
As for the Highlands
County Fair, I look upon it
with fond memories, as well.
In the years when we didn't
have an official photographer,.
many of us at the then Sebring
News would grab a camera
and venture forth, happy to
get out of the office, or just
have somewhere to go at
night. The Lakeshore Mall
wasn't there then, but I
digress.
Central Florida Fair? Yes, I
recall it with warmth. Our
hearts were light and we
beamed with the luminous
lights.
Just watch out for those
sticky hands.

Sun and a Sebring resident.

No change with

Bush, Iraq
Editor:
After carefully listening to
the State of the Union speech
recently it is apparent that the
president still thinks that
American arms will ultimate-
ly win the day in Iraq.
Although he now recognizes
that the bulk of the fighting in
Baghdad is in the nature of a
civil war between Sunni and
Shiite, he still expects the
Iraqi government, with "U.S.
backing" to quell the interline
warfare, and stabilize the
country.
t This view completely over-
e looks the growth of anti-
Y American sentiment among
the Shiites who recently
threatened to withdraw their
support for the Maliki gov-
ernment unless the United
States leaves the country.
It is highly likely that if we
z began to reduce our presence
D in Iraq, as most Americans
now want, that the posturing
D of Al Sadr and his Mahdi
e army and its anti-government
e stance will abate and recon-


ciliation of Iraqis in pursuing
a solution of other problems
will resume.
Senator Joe Biden suggests
dividing the country into
three sections for Kurds,
Sunni and Shiites giving
each section a large degree of
autonomy but providing for a
federal type central govern-
ment. I looked into the histo-
ry of Iraq and to my amaze-
ment that is precisely what
the Ottoman Empire did in
1534, when they provided for
three administrative pro-
vinces at Mosul, in the north
for the Kurds, Baghdad in the
center of the area for the
Sunni, and Basra in the south
for the Shia. Although some
home rule was permitted by
Istanbul this administrative
division was kept in force by
the Ottoman until 1918 when
World War I ended, a period
of almost 500 years.
The British occupation and
their establishing a monarchy
ultimately led us to the mess
with which we are confronted
today, but separating the con-
testing factions pretty well
kept the peace for 500 years.
The mistake it would seem is


viewing Iraq as a long stand-
ing sovereign political entity
when in fact it is a recent cre-
ation. a product of British
Colonialism and the mandate
system established at the end
of WWI.
The Iraqis love to point to
the ancient cities of Meso-
potamia, and then claim "we
gave the world civilization."
Perhaps they should have
kept some of this "civiliza-
tion" for themselves. The
reality is that the area now
occupied by Iraq is where the
Mesopotamia existed but
beyond the geographic locale
there is little justification for
the current Iraqis to take
credit for the creation of civi-
lization.
Perhaps they should study
their own violent recent his-
tory and seek a solution with-
-out reliance on America to
solve their problems.
Meanwhile President Bush
would do well to examine Joe
Biden's proposal and stop
worrying about his place in
history as a brilliant military
strategist.

No support

shown in return
Editor:
There has been much rheto-
ric about our deficit. Some see
the war as being totally respon-
sible. I must say I think this has
been misplaced. Of course, the
war is a big part, but when we
consider the consequences of
not going to war, it becomes
much more justifiable.
If we had to be afraid of
being blown up every time we
left the house, we might soon
have a different perspective.
The more of these small coun-
tries they gain control of, the
more powerful they become.
My mom told me, at a very
early age, "An ounce of pre-
vention was worth a pound of
cure." I've found that to be true
through my 83 years.
Back to the deficit: Wouldn't
you think that medical treat-
ment as well as other provi-
sions for these immigrants
would play a part? What many
don't realize is that billions are
taken out of our social security
fund to support these pork bar-
rel projects, many of which

help no one in return for sup-
port to get elected.
If there's anything in our
government that needs fixing,
it's our election process.
Elections shouldn't be deter-
mined by the person that rais-
es the most money, but on the
person, his character and
integrity. If you don't have
these, you are not apt to lead
in the right direction. Of
course, leadership qualities
are also important and one
does have to have the right
foundation to build on.

This new Congress is
working to stop citizens from
being able to petition the
Congress on issues they feel
are important. This stem cell
research issue is not what it's
portrayed to be. Our president
has always been for research,
but not the part that destroys
human life and it has been
proven that other parts being
used are equally, if not more
effective.
I'm sure this has influ-
enced many votes. Things can
be twisted out of proportion
and when it's over, it's alto-
gether different than what it
really is.

James has much to say
about the tongue. He says
"It's an unruly evil that no
man can tame." Aren't we
glad that God can. It says
much more. Read it. When I
think that I am going to give
an account for every word I
say, it makes me do more
thinking and less talking.

Our president has been
accused of lying. I hope this


newly elected Congress does-
n't really show us what lying
is. Some will say what they
think you want to hear to get
elected and then do the oppo-
site. I'm praying that they
have a plan that will benefit
our nation, but one world
government, government
healthcare, uncontrolled
immigration and pork barrel
spending is not the answer. I
hope no one forgets Hillary's
plan for government-con-
trolled healthcare.
There is a saying "The best
prediction of the future is to
look at the past." We certain-
ly have many things that need
improving, but I'm not sure
we have arrived at the answer
yet. May God help us to keep
searching as He leads us to
the answer. Let it begin with
each of us as we surrender
our will to His.

Miracles aren't always what we believe


Sometimes things
in life do not always
workout the way we
hope. There are times
when it takes all we
have just to go on one
more day. Life is full
of surprises; some
satisfy us and some
cause us to question
our existence. At
times we even ques-
tion God's will.
When my uncle


On
Mil
Georgia i


was diagnosed with cancer in
November I immediately
applied my faith to the situa-
tion. I started believing God
for a healing. Excitement
overwhelmed me because in
the back of my mind I just
knew that God would bring
him through. I knew He
would bring us through.
Shortly after his diagnosis,
I spoke with a woman who is
very dear to my heart. She
asked me how my family was
and I explained to her our
ordeal, but I told her not to
worry because I believed God
for. a miracle.
.She responded by telling
me about the many people she
had lost in her lifetime. She
said that she had learned that
a miracle is not always a heal-
ing; sometimes a miracle is
being able to make it through


the situation.
I must say that this
is the hardest lesson I
have ever had to
learn. Never in my
M life have I prayed or
:, fasted as I have done
for this "miracle." I
did not know how to
S react when I heard
S the news. First, I
Id wanted to cry
because I lost my
9awkinms
uncle and then I
wanted to rejoice because I
knew that he was no longer in
pain.
To comfort myself, I began
to reminisce about my uncle.
The number one misconcep-
tion about my situation is
people think that he was just
my uncle but he was so much
more. He was my father and a
role model. He is the reason I
chose to go into journalism
and the reason I chose Florida
A&M as my only choice for
higher education.
My aunt and my uncle are
an extra set of parents that
God blessed me with. They
have always been there for me
and they have taught me a
great deal.
At my graduation party last
summer he made a comment
about how we should not be
celebrating my graduation.


"Why are we celebrating
something she is supposed to
do?" At first I didn't quite
understand but then I realized
that he is right.
People spend too much
time celebrating people for
things they are supposed to
do. Because of that people get
comfortable with what they
are doing and do not desire to
exceed average expectations.
Although my will was not
done, I am happy to know that
he is no longer suffering. I
have found comfort in my
God, my friends, and my fam-
ily. Many of my friends have
shown care and concern dur-
ing my time of need knowing
it is really hard to go through
this and not be at home.
One of my friends shared a
song with me by Smokie
Norful called "I Understand"
and it has really helped
through the week. In this song
he is telling God how he just
feels like he can't go on
because he is tired and life is
so hard. God responds by'say-
ing, "When you can't hear my
voice, just trust my plan."

Watery disguises
While stopped in traffic
on U.S. 27 North recently, I
was looking at the Sebring
water tower. It looked a lot
like the water tower from
home in Ohio I would
guess the paint can label
said "Florida's Blue Skies."
Years ago, when the
North Canton water tower
was painted blue from the
aluminum steel color it had
been, I wondered if the
designers really expected
people to not see the water
tower because it was sup-
posed to match the color of
the sky. If the designers of
the water towers in Ohio
thought sky blue matched
the sky, they were to be
sadly disappointed.
Going online, I thought
I'd see what "unusual water
towers" I could find. I
searched dogpile.com and
came up with 56 hits. The
link I looked at first was
www.ohiobarns.com/other
sites/watertowers/wt/ty-
object.html. The site that
starts the list of 27 water
towers is none other than
Plant City's Strawberry
(www.ohiobarns.com/other
sites/watertowers/fl/09-
29strawberry.html). Take a
look at the pineapple,
watermelon, and Cape
Charles water tower that's
painted to look like the
Cape Charles lighthouse.
If you are going to
Germany soon, you may
want to check out this Web
site www.hotel-im-wasser
turm.de/. You can stay in a
130 year-old luxury hotel
inside what once was the
largest water tower in
Europe. Also known as
standpipes, many water
towers were built for multi-
ple purposes. The Web site
www.macleod-consulting.
com/ProjLawson.htm shows
a bell tower built as a repli-
ca of a castle's watch tower.
Riverside, Ill, has a ques-
tionnaire on their Web site
so that residents can decide
if they want to restore the
current water tower to its
original design. Visit
www. riverside-illinois.
com/index 3 23 02.html to
see which design you like
better.
Perhaps the most famous
American water tower is
seen at www.chipublib.org
/004chicago/timeline/water
towerhtml, the 1869
Chicago Water Tower. "In
May of 1969, during the
year of its Centennial
Anniversary, the Chicago
Water Tower was selected
by the American Water
Works Association
(www.awwa.org) to be the
first American Water
Landmark in the nation.
The tower was completed
in 1869 and survived the
Great Chicago Fire of
1871."
Not to be outdone, our
friends north of the border
have a Web site saluting the
"tower of the month," as
well as more than 200
unique towers in the vari-
ous provinces.
The most comprehensive
Web site I found is at http://
members. tripod. com/-water
towers/. They show all the
towers named above, many
more throughout the world,
and the companies who
build them. I particularly
liked the smiley-faced
water tower in Grand Forks,
N.D. because of the link,
www. roadsideamerica. corn/
set/smileywatertowerslist.ht
ml. Not a single water
tower in "John Deere
Green" was sighted, howev-
er.

First Ladies' handkerchiefs,

along with other items, to be

habitat for Humanity volunteers Beverley
Loucks and her husband Loyal have per-
manently moved back to Goshen, Ind. after
living in Sebring part time for 20 years.
But they didn't leave town without leaving some-
thing behind to benefit their favorite charity.
Back in the 1990s Loyal lent a hand with carpentry
and built homes for Habitat for Humanity while
Beverley volunteered for their fund-raising projects.
She assisted Ruth Kelly, who was president at that
time.
"We sent requests to presidents' wives to donate
handkerchiefs. We thought these could be used as part
of a baby blanket or a pillow top, but we didn't get a
great response. Recently when I opened our fireproof
safe in preparation for our move, I found the four
handkerchiefs we did receive and I thought this was
perfect timing. They could be used in the silent auc-
tion at the upcoming Habitat celebration," Beverley
said. There was also one quilt square.

Current president of Habitat for Humanity Jane
Breylinger is thrilled to be able to use these handker-
chiefs in the organization's upcoming annual celebra-
tion at 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 23, at the Restoration
Center in Sebring. This celebration marks the comple-
tion of 100 houses in Highlands County alone.
"We are the 38th largest builder in the United States
of Habitat homes," Breylinger said. She moved to
Sebring from Wisconsin in 1988 and started as a vol-
unteer with Habitat 13 years ago. She has been execu-
tive director for the past three years.
"The Loucks started at the ground level when they
were only building one, two, or three homes a year.

Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Jane Breylinger (left) looks over the handkerchief held by Beverley
Loucks, of Sebring. This handkerchief was selected by former First Lady Betty Ford from her personal collection.
Loucks donated four handkerchiefs and one quilt square from First Ladies. These items among many others have
been donated to help raise money for Habitat for Humanity. The auction will take place at the organization's upcom-
ing annual celebration at 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 23, at the Restoration Center in Sebring.


Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter gave these two
handkerchiefs to Beverley Loucks who was collecting
items for Habitat for Humanity in Highlands County.

This year we will complete 20. The Loucks and all the
other volunteers built a sturdy foundation and have
helped the program grow so we can assist more fami-
lies. With an average of 3.5 persons in each of those
20 homes, Habitat touches lots of lives," Breylinger
said.
Local volunteers are desperately needed to work on
site as carpenters. Neither inexperience nor lack of
tools should be a hindrance. Because there are super-
visors who teach as they go, all that is necessary are
willing workers. It takes about 600 work-site hours
per house to create a three-bedroom home with an
appraised value of $125,000.
There are many other ways to lend a hand. In case a
person is not handy with a hammer, people are needed
to prepare lunches for the workers og site. There is

My wife still heals my heart


* This commentary is the first of a five-
part series on Men and Grief that will
run every Friday.

By LARRY LEVEY
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK It's taken me almost
14 years to write this, to write about my
becoming a widower and to write about
how some men deal with widowhood.
Over the coming weeks, you'll be
reading about Erv Bender of Avon Park,
about Paul Hinman of Sebring, about
Harry Thurber of Lake Placid and
how they are coping with life after los-
ing a spouse. You'll also see some sug-
gestions on this topic from Kathy Wilde,
bereavement counselor for Good
Shepherd Hospice.
But first, I'd like to share my story
with you. Maybe there are some things I
went through that would be helpful- to
others.
My late wife Nita died from lung can-
cer in 1993. Looking back, I remember
wanting to organize a memorial service
for her in our clubhouse. For part of the
service, I intended to say a few words.
That was hard. I wrote it all out and
as I rehearsed it at home, I couldn't get
through the speech without choking up.
It took me some three months before I


felt ready to handle it
OK. And I did.
My situation was
drastically different
from what most people
go through. Before Nita
died, we were a three-
some. Her mother,
Beulah, had moved in
with us back in
Michigan and she came
with us when we moved
to Florida in 1987.
When Nita died,
Beulah and I became the
oddest couple. In those
early days, we were able
to support each other. I


MEN AND

Larry 1


never came home to an
empty house, never had to eat alone, as
most widowed persons do. And that
helped.
But I had some problems adjusting.
My eye doctor saw something in the
veins in my head that suggested a heavy
dose of stress. He was concerned.
I cried a lot. I rarely laughed. I even
went to see a local psychologist I knew
for "an emotional checkup." She thought
I was doing OK. Some months after Nita
died, I joined a hospice-sponsored
bereavement support group. One of the


GRIEF


helpful things that came
from that was being able
to laugh again, not at
first, but eventually.
I also took a lot of
bike rides. During those
rides, I had many con-
versations with Nita.
Finally, during one of
my rides, I remember
saying to her, "Neet, it's
time for me to get over
the grieving. Not the
missing but the griev-
ing."
I came home, sat


down at my computer
Levey and wrote her a letter,
repeating what I had
said on the bike ride. I added several
thoughts, including one that went some-
thing like, "What does that mean, getting
over the grieving but not the missing?"
After thinking about that for a while, I
wrote: "It means opening myself up to
new experiences, new people, to stop
saying no to life."
And I couldn't believe it within
a day or so, I got a phone call from Nu-
Hope Elder Care Services Inc. wanting
to me to take part in a monthly meeting
of staff from local agencies working


with the elderly. I thought to myself,
"Wow, I can't say no now." So I said yes.
SThis happened nearly two years after
Nita died. Then something else took
place that really changed my life. I met
Elaine. She was working as a library
assistant at South Florida Community
College and we were both correspon-
dents for the News-Sun.
The bottom line of our getting togeth-
er can be summed up in the four words I
kept repeating over and over: "She heals
my heart."
But this was a difficult time. I was a
widower with a built-in mother-in-law.
Beulah felt extremely threatened. She
said she was being evicted from her
home. Not true, but nothing I said made
a difference. She and I both behaved
badly toward each other. Finally, she
made peace with me and with Elaine.
I know that because toward the last
months of her life -she died in 1995 -
she cooked dinners for the three of us -
and she called Elaine by name, things
she had not done earlier.
Elaine and I married in 1996. She still
heals my heart.
And, yes, sometimes we talk about
Nita and, yes, sometimes I still get
teary-eyed.

DIVERSIONS


'Dreamgirls' fails to live up to expectations


Few recent movies have hit
theaters with as much hype as
"Dreamgirls."
The film's actors were fea-
tured in every magazine imagi-
nable from GQ to Vanity
Fair to People to Entertainment
Weekly. The movie won four
Golden Globes including Best
Motion Picture (and was nomi-
nated for two more) and won
two Screen Actors Guild
Awards while being nominated
for a third. It garnered eight
Oscar nominations, and both
Eddie Murphy and the debuting
Jennifer Hudson are widely
expecting to take home Best
Supporting Actor awards. The
film garnered eight Academy
Award nominations in total.
But ultimately, "Dreamgirls"
just isn't a strong enough film
to live up to the hype.
The film, based on a 1981
Broadway musical, tells the
story of The Dreams, an all-girl
Motown group that got its start
as backup singers for James
"Thunder" Early (Eddie
Murphy), the shining star on the
music scene at the time. The
first half of the movie docu-
ments group's rise to fame, and
the cost of that success. The
group eventually breaks off
from Early, which sets in
motion the chain of events lead-
ing to his breakdown.
Effie White (Jennifer
Hudson), the group's most-tal-
ented singer, is soon replaced as
lead singer by the less-talented
but thinner Deena Jones
(Beyonce Knowles).
Predictably, Effie is not pleased
with this development, and her
disgruntlement eventually
results in her being kicked out
of the group by the band's pro-
ducer Curtis Taylor, Jr. (Jamie
Foxx).
Unfortunately, the film's
emotional high point occurs in

'Dreamgirls'
gets




the middle of the movie. Effie's
overwhelming emotions at los-
ing her chance at stardom (as
well as her lover Curtis) result
in the most stunning part of the
movie Hudson's show-stop-
ping rendition of "And I Am
Telling You I'm Not Going."
Effie pours out her emotions in
the song, and Hudson's heart-
breaking performance is by far
the best part of the film.
But after Effie's breakdown,
the story slides rapidly down-
hill, as it focuses less on inter-
esting characters like Effie and
"Thunder" Early, and more on
the one-dimensional Deena.
Deena's meteoric rise to star-
dom is somewhat interesting,
but Knowles' performance is


too flat to make much of an
impact.
Foxx's stale performance as
Curtis doesn't help matters.
Foxx's acting is boring, which
makes his character just as bor-
ing, and when Deena and Curtis
take the movie's center stage
the film slows down to a crawl.
Effie is not ignored in the film's
second half, and the story picks
up every time she's onscreen.
But she's just not there enough
to pick the film up from its sec-
ond-half doldrums.
The strength of "Dreamgirls"
lies in the acting, The career-
making performance from for-
mer American Idol-reject
Jennifer Hudson is the highlight
of the film. The movie marks
Hudson's cinematic debut, and
she's going to have a difficult
time topping her outstanding
performance. Hudson's consid-
erable acting chops are impor-
tant because her character's
emotional journey is the most
captivating storyline in the
movie.
Unfortunately, the story
focuses more on Deena's mete-
oric rise to stardom and Curtis
Taylor Jr's behind-the-scenes
machinations. Condon's focus
on these less-interesting charac-
ters lessens the film's emotional
impact.
One of the film's most pleas-


ant surprises is Murphy's bril-
liant portrayal of the tortured
James "Thunder" Early:
Murphy's singing abilities have
come a long way from the dis-
aster that was his 1980's
singing career, and his acting in
the film is certainly Oscar-wor-
thy.
In the end though, the prob-
lem with "Dreamgirls" is that it
tries to be more than it should.
Condon's love of the project is
apparent, but the story is just
too weak.
"Dreamgirls" set the unenvi-
able record for most. Oscar
nominations without a Best
Picture nod. But, in the end, the
film is not worthy of the Best
Picture label. Strong perform-
ances from Hudson and
Murphy save "Dreamgirls"
from mediocrity. But the flat
storytelling and the lack of
emotion that plagues the film's
second half leaves the dream
unfulfilled.

Pakistani

girl adopted

by Women's

Ministries
AVON PARK Noreen
Akhter, an adorable little 8-
year-old girl, was adopted by
the Women's Ministries of the
Avon Park First Presbyterian
Church ARP recently.
Her parents are illiterate, and
her father and mother clean
houses for a living. She has no
brothers. The Women's
Ministries sponsor Akhter and
she lives in a Mabel Lowery
Pressley School and Girls
Dormitory. It is a hostel in
Sahiwal, Pakistan, begun in
1913 when girls were denied
the opportunity of education
and many pastors in remote vil-
lages had no way to provide
education for their children.
The need continues to this day.
The MLPS Hostel, under the
supervision of Pam Brunson, a
member of the Avon Park
church and missionary in
Pakistan, provides excellent
Christian education and board-
ing to Christian young ladies.
Many of the graduates go on to
be lay leaders in their churches,
schoolteachers, head mistress-
es, nurses, and superintendents
of nurses in major hospitals in
Pakistan and other countries.
Akhter depends completely on
this monthly gift, and she
receives a good basic diet, a
healthy environment, and the
opportunity to thrive. She

knows that the love of Jesus
Christ is responsible for this
care she receives as she learns
about him. The women in Avon
Park are praying for her daily
and are happy to be sponsoring
her. Other church members
individually sponsor girls, too,
but Akhter is "mothered and
grand-mothered" by all the
ladies in the Women's
Ministries at the Avon Park
First Presbyterian Church ARP.


If anyone would be interest-
ed in this wonderful Christian
witness, contact Claudia Brock,
missions chairman, at 452-0948
or visit the church at 215 E.
Circle St.. For more informa-
tion, call the church office at
453-3242. The program is a
part of World Witness of the
Associate Reformed
Presbyterian Church with head-
quarters at 1 Cleveland St.,
Greenville, S.C.


Unity offers educational class


SEBRING Based on the
book, "The Week That Changed
The World," by Ernest C.
Wilson, a challenging and edu-
cational class will be at Unity of
Sebring during Lent.
Beginning on Ash
Wednesday, Feb. 21, will be an
in-depth study of the week
begun by Jesus, triumphant


entry into Jerusalem and ending
with the Resurrection. Led by
Unity Licensed Unity Teacher,
Sunny K. Zengler, this interac-
tive class will explore the chal-
lenges Christians face when fol-
lowing the teachings of Jesus
into and beyond "the dark night
of the soul".
Offered on a love-offering


basis, the class meets from 6-8
p.m. at 204 S. Orange St.
Textbooks and Bibles are avail-
able at the Positive Outlook
Bookstore at Unity of Sebring.
For more information, call

SEBRING Everyone is
,invited to hear the Singing
Auctioneer, Dane Bailey, at
First Church of the Galilean,
1130 State Road 17 North, at
10:30 a.m. Sunday.
In 1969, Bailey felt a call to
the ministry. In 1975, Bailey
started seminary at Grace
Theological Seminary, Winona
Lake, Ind. and that fall did his
first concert. He has been trav-
eling, ministering and entertain-
ing at churches, conferences,
conventions, fairs, festivals,
campgrounds, restaurants and
banquets as well as on radio and
television ever since. He has
also traveled with a gospel
quartet for approximately four
years. Most recently, Bailey
received an invitation and sang
on Dec. 19, 2006, at the
"Pageant of Peace," an annual
event at the National Christmas
Tree on the ellipse near the
White House.
In 2001, Bailey was able to
take another step in his music
career by stepping out as a full
time singer-recording artist. He
now travels throughout the
United States with last year
doing more than 100 concerts


Dane Bailey is the Singing
Auctioneer.
and traveling more than 23,000
miles. He has seven recordings
and a live concert video to his
credit. Four of the recordings,
"Touch of the Master's Hand,"
"One More Time," "The
Sketch" and a favorite of every-
one, "Old Hymns and
Favorites," are all southern
gospel projects. Believing that
laughter lightens the heart,
Bailey recently released an all
comedy project, "Laughin'
Time." With his traveling to the
nation's capitol for Christmas,


has released a new project,
"Live at Christmas."
His growing list of music
now includes not only southern
gospel, but many old standards,
big band, country and novelty
songs that extend his program
into many different venues that
are looking for good entertain-
ment that is family oriented
with a high standard of per-
formance. This criteria has
brought him an.endorsement by
the Christian Music Presenters
which stands for musical excel-
lence, spiritual integrity and
ministry preparedness.
Bailey is a "real for sure auc-
tioneer" and a growing part of
his travels include auctioneer-
ing and entertaining and emcee-
ing for benefit functions help-
ing a variety of groups raise
money. He is a partner in
Martin and Bailey Auction
Realty in Fort Wayne, Ind., real
estate broker and an instructor
at the Reppert's School of
Auctioneering, Auburn, Ind.,
teaching voice care, vocal tech-
nique and bid calling.

be available as an advocate
and friend to the family.
Any type of building materi-
als and furniture can be donat-
ed to Home Supply Store, 137
South Commerce Ave.,
Sebring. These items are then
sold to the general public, with
all funds from this covering all
of Habitat's administrative
costs.
"The Celebration is a kick-
off for our capital campaign
and will put us in position for
future building and our goal of
30 to 50 new homes a year,"
Breylinger said. In addition to
music and a free dinner,
Nazareth, a Christian comedian
from California will perform.
He is the opening act for the
Christian entertainer, Mark
Lowry. "What keeps me going
is the joy of seeing families
succeed at owning a home.
This is a way for Christ to act
through people. We are his


hands and feet. It is a way to
experience love no matter
what peoples' backgrounds are.
These families are in a cycle of
need and this is a change for
them to break out of it,"
Breylinger said.
She feels the most moving
part of the Habitat experience
is when a child shows off his
bedroom. Usually a child has
had to sleep on a couch.
Another thrill is when a child
goes off to college. A Habitat
home makes it possible for
children to concentrate on their
studies and to have a stable
environment, so they can take
pride in their work and their
accomplishments they see hope
and are encouraged to dream
and set goals for their future.
Seeing that first child in the
family going off to college is
worthwhile. Habitat changes
lives," Breylinger said.
She is hopeful people will
attend this celebration and
learn more about Habitat for
Humanity. She promises it will


be festive. A person can view
and bid on a multitude of
items: First Ladies' handker-
chiefs; a three-day trip to the
Bahamas on a private yacht; a
week at a cabin in Boone,
N.C.; clay shoots; dinner in
Key West; a two-day Spring
gobbler Turkey hunt in Venice;
a health and beauty pack; a
NASCAR race package; crys-
tal; a quilt; and offerings from
Caddyshack Restaurant,
Everglades Seasonings; Sun 'N
Lake Golf Course golf, etc.
Bill Chatlos, of Sebring, also
donated a painting of an alliga-
tor done in 1937 in Miami by
artist Ona Moss.
"Just remember that 100
percent of monies from the
silent auction go for building
homes," Breylinger said.
Reserve a seat at the free
celebration dinner and enter-
tainment. Call 453-9695 or e-
mail to hchabitat@habi-
tathighlands.org. For more

NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULE DEVELOPMENT
OF THE SCHOOL BOARD OF HIGHLANDS
COUNTY, FLORIDA TO CONSIDER AMEND-
MENT OF SCHOOL DISTRICT RULE 7.70 AND
NOTICE OF POTENTIAL PUBLIC HEARING
NOTICE is hereby given that THE SCHOOL
BOARD OF HIGHLANDS COUNTY is develop-
ing an amendment to School Board Rule 7.70,
Purchasing Manual. The Board will
discuss/approve future plans to amend the
purchasing manual at a regular meeting of the
Board on Tuesday, February 20, 2007 at 5:30
p.m. in the Board Meeting Room, George
Douglass Administration Building, 426 School
Street, Sebring, Florida. If requested by an af-
fected person in writing within 14 days of the
date of this notice, a rule development work-
shop will be noticed in a local newspaper.
The request must be submitted to Wally Cox,
Superintendent, 426 School Street, Sebring,
FL 33870. The purpose and effect of the pro-
posed amendment is to modify the adopted
purchasing manual pursuant to recent legisla-
tive guidelines. A summary of the proposed
rule or amendment is as follows: The Super-
intendent is authorized by the Board to use
Federal funds to purchase food when federal
program guidelines permit such use. The
specific legal authority includes Sections
1001.41 and 1001.42, Florida Statutes. The
School District believes that the proposed rule
or amendment will have no effect of small
business. The School District believes that
the proposed rule or amendment will not re-
sult in substantial increase in costs or prices

Class 4A Girls Basketball State Playoffs


Undefeated


Sebring holds

off Kathleen
By JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Just when Sebring need-
ed a spark the most, the Lady Streaks got
an unlikely jolt of offense from senior
forward Nikela Sullivan and held on to
upend Kathleen's Lady Red Devils, 43-
38, in Thursday night's Region 2-4A
game.
Sebring will face Fort Myers-Dunbar,
a 54-27 winner over Naples on Thursday,
in Tuesday's second round.
Sullivan, known more for her speed,
rebounding and defense, put a temporary
stop to Sebring's ongoing fourth-quarter
meltdown with a 6-foot jumper that put
Sebring up 41-35 with 2:32 left in the
game. Those were the first points unbeat-
en Sebring (25-0) had
Sebring scored since posting a 39-
43 28 lead at the third stop.
4 The Devils, who beat
Katle the Streaks by one point in
Kathleen
this same game last year,
38 scored the first seven
38 points of the fourth peri-
od.
Kathleen had a one-and-one situation
following Sullivan's first goal, and she
all but righted the Streaks' ship by nail-
ing a 12-footer to raise the lead to 43-37
with 1:54 left: The Devils managed only
a Phelisa Reynolds free throw with 8 sec-
onds remaining, and that proved to be a
good thing because Sebring's shooters
were off target.
Even Sullivan had been told not to
shoot the ball by head coach Bob
Sampson, but the 14th-year Sebring
coach was glad his senior made the right
decisions.
"Well, in fact I told her to stop shoot-
ing the ball right there," Sampson said
when asked of Sullivan's clutch goals.
"Of course, about the beginning of the
fourth quarter she missed two or three

Avon Park derailed by powerful Haines City


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne @ newssun. comn
HAINES CITY The final
score wasn't what was important,
nor was the fact that the Lady Red
Devils season ended in the 68-35
loss to a powerful Haines City
Hornet squad Thursday night in
the first round of the state play-
offs.
More important was the setting
and the learning experience.
Here were the Avon Park girls,
in the statewide Class 4A basket-
ball playoffs.
And here they were, taking a
stunning blow of a first quarter,


and not backing down.
Trailing 17-4 after the first
eight minutes, many teams would
have seen it as a sign and pack it
in for the night, effort-wise.
But the Devils (16-6) showed
they had a little devil in them, bat-
tling heavily favored Haines City
through the second and third
quarters.
That 13-point lead expanded by
just three more points by half-
time, and by another measly three
by the end of the third.
But with all the effort mustered
during character-building stretch,
the drained Devils got stung by


the Hornets over the final eight
minutes, resulting in the final
margin.

"This was the
hardest team
we've played all
season," first-year
coach Paulette
Daily said. "The
girls played hard
and gave good
effort, but at a cer-


tain point, our heart just wasn't
there."
That's something the coach
sees that has a fixable solution for
the Devils, who seemed a bit shell


shocked during the opening min-
utes.
"The schedule was already set
when I got here," she said. "For
the most part, we didn't have
many games that did much to pre-
pare us to play in this situation,
against this type of competition.
"This is a young team," she
continued. "And this was definite-
ly a great learning experience for
them to grow from for next sea-
son.
"We will be back and we will
be better."
A tough night, but valuable les-
sons learned all around.

Blue Streaks


slam rival


Lake Placid
By SCOTT DRESSEL
scott.dressel@newssun.com
SEBRING The Blue Streaks played
small ball to near perfection Thursday
night.
Seven of Sebring's 12 hits in their season
opener against Lake Placid never left the
infield, but the Streaks managed to convert
those hits into enough runs to take an 11-1
win in five innings against their county
rivals.
"They had a little bit of jitters tonight
when they started out, but
we settled down and started Sebring
hitting the ball," Sebring
coach Lee Tolar said.
"We've got tons of talent on
this team this year. We've Lake Placid
still got four or five coming
(from basketball), but these 1
girls are stepping up and
playing an filling in well."
Despite those jitters, which helped the
Dragons score an unearned run in the top of
the first on a walk, an error and a wild
pitch, the Streaks still managed to push
four runs across the plate in their first at bat
to take control.
Sam Lower drove in the first run with a
single to left and Nikki Helms made it 3-0
when she cracked a two-run double deep to
left field. Helms later scored on a wild
pitch for a four-run lead.
Three infield singles in the bottom of the
third put Sebring ahead 6-1, with the runs
coming on a Jamie Herskowitz sacrifice fly

AL I secure their football futures


News-Sun photo by Jclf Cantwcll
Sebring football players (seated, from left) Mike Dozier, Jamaa Massaline, Orlando Howard and Kyle
Hoffner were surrounded by family and coaches Wednesday morning when they all signed college
scholarships.


By JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING Never mind
that it had been nine years
since Sebring High School had
its last football player to sign
on National College Signing
Day. The Blue Streaks made
up for the drought in a big way
Wednesday morning when four
outstanding athletes inked full
scholarships to three universi-
ties.
LaVaar Scott, an assistant
coach at Sebring, signed with
the University of Miami back
in '98 and went on to earn a
national championship ring.
Conch Scott and hparl conich


Jared Hamlin and the rest of
his staff can only hope that
Wednesday's scholarship
recipients Kyle Hoffner,
Orlando Howard, Mike Dozier
and Jamaa Massaline will also
have plenty of success in their
respective athletic careers.
Hoffner, who caught' 27
passes for 638 yards and six
touchdowns and was a menace
on both sides of the ball,
signed with Gardner Webb
University, a Division I-AA
school in southern North
Carolina, Howard signed with
North Alabama University, a
Division II powerhouse in
Flnrencr Aln nnrl hnth


Dozier and Massaline signed
with Benedict College, a
Division II school in South
Carolina.
As rare as it is to have four
athletes sign scholarships on
the same day, there was noth-
ing rare or lacking about the
work ethics and commitments
from Sebring's outstanding
2007 signing class. Hoffner
put up big numbers offensively
and Dozier was the mainstay
on the offensive line blazing
the trail. Howard and
Massaline proved to be oppos-
ing ball carriers' worst ene-
mies. Massaline had 64 tack-

Panthers drop 6th straight


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel. hoehlne@ new.ssuiin.coam
AVON PARK It was
more of the same misfortune
Wednesday night, as the
South Florida Community
College Panthers' losing
streak extended to six games
with a 7-4 loss at the hands of
the Polk Community College
Vikings.
"We just really haven't
played well our last handful
of games," SFCC head coach
Rick Hitt said. "It's been a
combination of everything ...
defense, pitching, hitting, it's
just been a little of every-
thing."
That showed up early, as a
combination of walks and
errors allowed the visiting
Vikings to put two unearned
runs on the board in the top of
the first inning.
The Panthers hitting got
them right back into it, how-


ever, in their half of the open-
ing frame.
Nick Polston wasted no
time, ripping a double into the
right field gap to lead off the
bottom of the first. Catcher
Nick Stanley's single brought
Polston around to score, with

That heads
up base run-
ning proved
effective as
Brad Gooch
soon singled
even things up,


But from there, the SFCC
bats were held in check while
the Vikings crossed the plate
once in the third, twice more
in the fifth and were the bene-
ficiaries of two more
unearned runs in the seventh.
The Panthers scrapped their


way to two more runs in the
eighth, with outfielder Pat
Tufano taking one for the
team and reaching first by
being hit with a pitch with one
out in the inning.
Lake Placid's Steve Levine
then hit a worm-burning rock-
et that the Viking third base-
man couldn't come up with,
putting Levine on first and
moving Tufano to third.
Gooch followed with a high
chopper that advanced Levine
to second and brought Tufano
in to score before Barry
Padgett lined a single to bring
Levine around.
But that would be it for
South Florida as they fell to
4-6 in this early part of the
season.
"We're just not having guys
making the toughness plays
right now," Hitt said.

the combination of guys that
will come out every day and
give their best effort.
"We've been road warriors,
playing eight of our first 10
games on the road against a


very tough schedule, and
that's not by accident," he
continued. "And we've got a
long way to go, so we'll just
have to tie our shoes on a lit-

"I'm very excited and hon-
ored to receive a scholarship,"
said Kyle Hoffner. "It means
a new beginning for me, and
the next stage of my life. It
was a nice surprise.
"I worked hard in the class-
room and on the field,"
Hoffner answered when asked
what enabled him to succeed
and earn a scholarship.
Hamlin was extremely
proud of his talented quartet
of athletes.
"It's very satisfying
because a lot of work goes
into these things on both
ends," he said. "Now they've
got to continue at the next
level. They've all worked
hard for what they've gotten.
All of them have good charac-
ter."

"The scholarship is like my
reward for my hard work and
the time I put into it," said
Howard, who had 105 tackles
(72 solo, 18 for a loss), three
fumble recoveries and an
interception. "All the hard
work during the offseason and
during the season enabled me
to succeed. Having good
coaches who set examples for
us to go by and pushing us to
better ourselves also helped.
"But for me, most of my
success was due to my par-
ents. They have been behind
me since day one. It was
mostly my dad for football.


Obviously, the scholarshjpi 'He used to coach when I first


started playing, then as I got
older he couldn't coach me on
the field but he made sure
during halftime or before the
game to give me a couple
words about what I need to
do.
"I could always tell how
well I was playing by looking
in the crowd and looking at
his facial expression or get-
ting a fist in the air to know I
was doing well. If it wasn't
for my dad, I probably would-

primary shooter. She took a couple of shots
and made some big shots for us. We needed
that."
Sullivan didn't even bat an eyelash when
asked about her shots in the fourth period.
"I shot anyway," Sullivan said with a grin.
"We started rebounding. It really was abusive
down there, but we just had to play strong
(and) play through it.
"I'm glad we beat 'em this time. They were
hard, I mean we really had to come out and
play 'em."
Brittany Bullock scored 11 of her game-
high 17 points in the first half and Hannah
Shoop followed with 12. Sebring's leading
scorer, junior Whitney Lee, scored all five of
her points in the first period and then went as
cold as ice.
Ironically, rebounds started playing a much
bigger role than points in the waning stages of
the game. Bullock, Sullivan and Shoop all had
13 rebounds apiece and kept Sebring in the
game when nothing else was working.

Sampson said. "We got a little bit relaxed in
that second quarter ... we were kind of up and
down."
Kathleen opened the game with a quick bas-
ket by Shenika Mosley off the tip-off and led
8-2 following a 3-pointer by Daysha
McDougal. Sebring countered with a 7-0 run
triggered by a Lee 3-pointer and long two and
sophomore Shoop hit two free throws to put
Sebring on top for the first time at 9-8.
The Streaks tacked on an 11-0 scoring run
after JaDasia Williams (12 points) nailed a
layup. Bullock scored nine of the points in the
bonanza, including the opener and closer and a
three-point play to bulge the lead to 20-10 at
the end of the first quarter.
The Lady Devils opened the second quarter
outscoring the Streaks 10-2 to close to 22-20
on two Mosley free throws with 2:30 left
before halftime.
Sullivan answered for Sebring, hitting two
free throws with 2:20 to go. Shoop added a
huge layup off of a Brenita Grant steal and
Sullivan added one more free throw to put
Sebring up 27-20 during halftime.
Shoop hit two huge baskets for the Lady
Streaks in the third period and Bullock deliv-
ered four points to keep Sebring on top 39-28
heading into the fourth.

By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING As March
looms long on the horizon,
the Sebring International
Raceway has become quite a
busy place. There has been
quite a bit of testing by
American Le Mans Series
competitors and this weekend
will be the 14th annual run-
ning of the 48 Hours at
Sebring.
The original two-day event
began in 1993. It now runs
over four-days beginning with
a Test & Tune and followed
by three days of Porsche Club
of America-sanctioned races.
It is organized under the aus-
pices of the PCA Gold Coast
Region and PCA Suncoast
Region Porsche clubs as a
regional club race for the
Porsche Club of America.
Club officials say because
of the increasing interest -
which has resulted in both
large and high-quality driver
and car counts -the 48 Hours
at Sebring has grown into one
of the consistently largest
PCA club races in the country.
As many as 300 racers and
another 85 advance solo driv-
ers will take part in this week-
end's gathering.
"That's a 25 percent
increase. The 380 cars make it


Porsche Club of America's 14th

annual 48 Hours of Sebring

drawing as many as 300 racers


the biggest single club race in
our 16-year history," said
event spokesman and Gold
Coast Porsche Club Chairman
David Kreihs Tabony.
Another record this year is
the number of Porsche
Factory Race Prepared Cup
Cars in attendance. There are
over 80 Cup Cars registered.
That represents 20 percent of
the total Cup Cars in the
United States, making the 48
Hours the single largest col-
lection of Porsche Factory
Race Prepared Cup Cars rac-
ing at one time in the world.
Although the PCA Club
Race is an amateur racing
program, many professionals
reportedly plan to be in atten-
dance. Cars and drivers from
Europe, Japan, Mexico and
Canada will join those from
the United States on the his-
toric 17-turn race course.
Many of these teams and
drivers were at this years 24
Hours at Daytona and will be
running in the 12 Hours of
Sebring this March as well as
many other Pro Series.


Well-known Porsche con-
tenders such as Kelly-Moss
Racing, The Racers Group,
Orbit Racing, Autometrics
Motorsports, Farnbacher
Loles Motorsports, Synergy
Racing, O'Connell Racing,
Vision Racing, NGT Racing,
Kinetics Racing are expected
to be in the field.
Because of the size of the
3.7-mile circuit, Tabony said
the clubs were able to support
the extra cars by expanding
the number of sprint racing
run groups from three to four
and Enduro run groups from
two to three.
Cars actually began taking
to the track on Thursday with
a test and tune session. The
open track time allows many
of the participants to tweak
their cars prior to the three-
day weekend of PCA Club
Racing practice and races.
Today, the PCA Club event
begins in earnest with prac-
tices and flying start runs fol-
lowed with a "Fun Race." On
Saturday, there will be four-
45 minute sprint races.


Sunday will conclude our
event with three-90 minute
enduro races.
Tabony said the 48 Hours at
Sebring is not just a race, but
also acts as a fund-raiser for
the American Cancer Society
and the Boy Scouts of
America.
More than $2,000 has
already been collected in pri-
vate donations and the event
has not even started this year.
"We hope to raise $5-
10,000 for these charities," he
said
The Porsche Club of
America has been in existence
for more than 50 years with
over 60,000 members in the
United States operating pri-
marily as a social club in the
pursuit of learning more about
the Porsche Marque.
It was in 1991 the PCA
decided to get into road
course racing. In its first year,
there were just four PCA Club
Races in North America. This
year there will be as many as
27 PCA Club Races scheduled
throughout North America.
The racing program is run
by racers for racers. It is the
second largest sanctioned rac-
ing program in North America
and the largest single Marque
racing organization in the
world.

Are You In Reverse?
'\ '-.-fi',: ," Many older golfers have what is
S''* }' ( '- called a reverse pivot, which means
S- your weight transfer is backward.
This happens when you are v'-ini., t
pivot holding the head too -.lnl BP
doing this, it causes the weight to
I hift to the opposite side of your
boxtdy, which means the weight is on
-d ithe front fotr instead of the back foot
I 'at the top of the swing. Free up your
swing by allowing the head to move
a bit during the backswing. The body
S1 will coil better and the head will be
blind the ball, which means more
distance and better control.
