Deputies kill armed



man who shot his wife


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING For five hours officers hunted a
man for shooting his wife. When they found him,
they opened fire with sub-machine guns.
"He was pointing a handgun at them,"
Highlands County Sheriff's Maj. David Paeplow
said Friday, standing on the east side of County
Road 17 not far from Kenilworth Boulevard.
An ambulance had just left with Charles E.
Schmidt, of Sebring, who was on the run after
shooting his 45-year-old wife Christine about 9
a.m.
Both had been transported to Highlands
Regional Medical Center with gunshot wounds.
She was in stable condition Friday. He died.
A K-9 team and the Special Response Team
found'Schmidt, 46, in a grove.
A weapon was found with Charles Schmidt,
but Paeplow would not disclose a description


beyond it being a semi-automatic handgun,
which matched Christine Schmidt's description.
As the search began for Schmidt, police
BOLOs be on the lookout said he was
armed with a .45-caliber gun.
Whether Schmidt returned
fire is still under investigation,
he said. No officers were
injured.
With blood visible at his nose
and mouth and what appeared to
be gunshot wounds to -the right
side of his rib cage area, Schmidt
SCHMIDT was extracted from the grove on
a stretcher, placed on a gurney
and loaded into an ambulance.
Assistant State Attorney Steve Houchin, pres-
ent at both shooting sites, went to the hospital.

Judy Eastwood, of Indiana, judges a hairless cat known as a Sphynx on Saturday morning dur-
ing the Florida Panhandlers Cat Club cat show at the National Guard Armory in Avon Park.
Eastwood said that some of the things she looks for is head type, body type, ears, weight and
overall condition.


Cats judged for purrfection


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
AVON PARK Security guards stood
watch Saturday at the Florida Army National
Guard Armory, but there were no cat fights.
The drill floor was packed with cat lovers,
not fighters, but federal law requires a law
enforcement presence to protect the arms
rooms whenever an armory is rented.
For the first time in 10 years, the Florida
Panhandler Cat Club had its annual cat show
in Highlands County, president Priscilla
Reeves, said.
Four judging "rings" lined the south wall.
The middle of the floor was the holding and
preparation area, where the felines were pam-
pered, primped and prodded before taking to
the cat walk.
Purrifics Keely, one of 100 Maine Coons
owned, bred and showed by Barbara Keller,
made her contest debut Saturday.
"It's a full-time job," Keller, of Dunedin,
said of her passion for the breed she described
as North America's native long hair.


The weekend's cold-snap wasn't a problem
for Keely, who has a think coat of long hair
that tapers shorter toward her head.
A bushy tail gives Keely and her kind a way
to warm their necks and square jaws facilitate
their original barnyard purpose catching
mice and rats.
Daily upkeep includes feeding her cats,
ensuring they always have fresh water, clip-
ping their nails, grooming and socializing
them so that they're used to being handled at
shows.
Keller sells her kittens for about $550 each,
with discounts and freebies given away as
appropriate.
"The price tells you your getting a show-
quality cat," Reeves said.
The mention of pet stores is akin to letting
slip a four-letter word.
Several breeds were on hand Saturday -
from the relatively new Ragamuffins to
Siberians.

SEBRING If selected as a
catalyst site for the project, the
airport could reap the benefits
of millions of dollars in invest-
ment opportunities and eco-
nomic development.
A successful bid "could be a
major boon, not only to
Highlands County but to the
entire region," Sebring Airport
Executive Director Mike
Willingham said. "It could be a
major, major generator of jobs
in our region."
The airport is proposing two
sites a 200-acre business
campus site to the east of the
airport terminal, and 40-acre
rail spur site to the northeast.
The property sits on a planned
rail spur that will travel to all 14
ports in Florida. The two sites
could be linked by a connector
road if needed.
The airport site would offer a
potential developer flexibility,
and a potential business park
could be developed as one large
project or broken into smaller
parts, if necessary, depending
on financial factors.
The proposal also explained
advantages of placing a large
business development on the
airport grounds. The potential
site's A-1 Airport District zon-
ing class would offer flexibility,
and "provide an excellent plat-
form for the proposed business
locations," according to the
presentation. The airport site
also offers a self-sufficient
water system, on-site sewage
collection, treatment and dis-


posal, and the planned natural
gas pipeline.
The airport site would also
offer, financial, incentives to a
potential catalyst project,
including fast-track develop-
ment approval from the Sebring
Airport Authority who owns the
property, Community
Redevelopment Agency incen-
tives, and Rural Enterprise
Zone incentives that provide
job and property tax credits.
The airport's central geographi-
cal location, within 150 miles
of 85 percent of Florida's popu-
lation, is another advantage the
airport would offer, the report
says.
"Sebring Regional Airport
and Commerce Park is the per-
fect site to attract and develop
businesses, research and manu-
facturing facilities related to
health care and sciences," the
presentation says. It added that
the area is a "pro-business com-
munity" that would offer a
competitive financial and site
location package, as well. as
"business-friendly policies."
The proposal was developed
with cooperation from the
Sebring Airport Authority, the
city of Sebring, the Highlands
County government, and the
Economic Development
Commission. At Thursday's
Airport Authority meeting,
Willingham said 10 to 12 sites
are eligible, and a consultant
hired by Enterprise Florida will
evaluate the proposals. The air-
port should know something
sometime near the first of April,

Lake Placid realtors recognized


at annual awards banquet


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.corn
LAKE PLACID Valentine's Day was the
theme as the Lake Placid Board of Realtors
showed love to the year's top performers
Saturday night.
Keynote speaker Michael Dooley, president of
the Florida Association of Realtors, said that
although 2006 "was not the best year in real
estate," he is optimistic about the real estate mar-
ket turning around in 2007.
"I would never bet against Florida real estate,"
Dooley said.
He told the crowd to "go stock the shelves,"
and prepare for the market to rebound in 2007.
"The more listings you have, the more you'll
have next season," Dooley said. "This is the time
for buyers to be buying."
Marie-Claire Hoy won the coveted Realtor of
the Year Award. Hoy was born in Lebanon, edu-
cated in Paris, and came to Lake Placid in 1984.
In her time in the town, she has received a multi-
tude of awards, including top producer of 1998,
and the Hall of Fame award in 2004. Hoy was
also recognized as the number three top producer
of the year, with more than $10 million in sales.
Carol Edwards received the Hall of Fame
award from 2005 winner Susan Compton.
Edwards was also recognized as the number two
producer of 2006, with more than $11 million in
sales.
The Presidents Award, chosen by the 2006
President Jim Carroll, was presented to Susan
Geitner. Geitner also achieved membership in the


Multi-Million Dollar Club, for Realtors with
sales of $2 million or more in 2006.
Hoz Compton earned the distinction of Top
Producer of 2006. Compton's sales total of more
than $49 million was higher than the remainder
of the top five's sales totals combined. James Hill
was named Top Producer in Number of Units
Sold, with 122 sales.
The Congeniality Award, determined by popu-
lar vote of the board's membership, was present-
ed to Sharon Talbott. Ann Pollard, 2005
Congeniality Award winner, called Talbott "cor-
dial and congenial."
The Board Member Achiever Award was given
to 2006 President Jim Carroll, who was recog-
nized for dedicating the most time and participa-
tion to the Board of Realtors' activities in 2006.
The Rookie of the Year Award, presented to a
Realtor who has held their license for less than
two years and closely adhered to the Realtors
Code of Ethics, was presented to Sheila Richards
of MC 2000 Realty.
The officers and directors for 2007 were intro-
duced at the meeting, as well. Hoy will serve as
president, and Brittany Phypers will be the vice
president. Clarence "C.B." Brewer will assume
the role of secretary and Sebert "Gene" Reese
will be treasurer. The 2007 directors will be Jean
Deuth, Iva Lou Eldon, Debbie McCullough,
Carole Polk, Larry Rogers and Rita Youngman.
Don Elwell, general manager of the
Kenilworth Lodge, emceed the event, which was
at the Elks Club.

Bob Mayworth (left) and Steve Handley, both members of the Highlands County Cattlemen's
Association, cook up the steaks for the buyer's dinner Thursday night at the fairgrounds. A total of 152
animals were up for auction this year. After eating well, the buyers bid on the livestock raised by
Highlands County students.




Life lessons learned


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Thursday night was buyers'
night at the Highlands County Fair.
But first came expertly barbecued steak.
Prepared by the beef experts, members of the
Cattlemen and Cattlewomen's associations, long
supporters of youth raising livestock. They were
out in force, cooking, serving, or lending encour-
agement at the dinner, and working the sale later
in the evening.
It was all new to Lee Dyce who attended the
evening representing her bank, Seacoast National
in Lake Placid.
The bank had sponsored three brothers, Dyce
said, who had each raised a hog. She had come to
possibly bid on at least one animal, but it was her
first experience with anything like this, so she
wasn't sure what would happen.
As it turned out, she did not join in the auction,
but she did add on to the bank's original contri-
bution, giving two of the brothers additional
funding.
She explained that the bank was involved for
two reasons.
Raising animals helps students make and reach


goals, she said, and it certainly teaches them
about agriculture. But even more than that, she
emphasized, is its chance for valuable life les-
sons.
Most students don't have the funds to buy an
animal outright, especially the larger animals like
hogs or steer, she explained. And there are other
expenses, like the feed costs and inoculations and
veterinarian checks, that have to be covered.
So what the students typically do, Dyce said, is
borrow money from a bank, and repay it from
their animal's sale proceeds.
"It's really good experience for them," she said
"They learn about the financial side, as well as
about the animals. And after paying off their debt
they can bank the difference and use it to set up
for the next year."
She added that successful students who raise
and sell animals over a period of years, often earn
their college tuitions by the time they graduate
high school.
As a first time viewer, she was impressed with
the evening's organization, and liked how each
student was introduced to the public, so the buy-
ers could learn a little bit about them.


The Salvation Army celebrates during Annual Civic Luncheon Friday


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING Many promi-
nent community members were
in attendance Friday afternoon
at The Salvation Army's Annual
Civic Luncheon.
The luncheon was a relaxed
affair and had a very friendly
attitude, with those in atten-
dance getting a recap of the
services the local Salvation
Army provides to Highlands
County.
"Not one program is more
important than any other,"
Captain Mary Holmes of The
Salvation Army said. "A family
might be struggling without
much money but their kids
would still need character
building. The Salvation Army is
a complete program that helps
people in many ways."
During 2006, The Salvation
Army in Highlands County
assisted more than 2,500 peo-
ple, with services such as social
casework, personal counseling,
food and shelter and gave finan-
cial help.
Holiday programs such as the

Angel Tree and Adopt-a-Family
benefited almost 2,000 people
while the Clothes for Kids pro-
gram provided new clothing
and school supplies for 150
children.
During 2006, donations from


the public supplied The
Salvation Army with almost
one third of the annual revenue,
with sales from the thrift store
totaling another third.
There are many ways to
donate money to help the vari-


ous programs and services pro-
vided, including planned giv-
ing, annuities or charitable
trusts.
For more information on
these types of gifts contact the
local Highlands County


Salvation Army at 385-7548 or
contact The Salvation Army
Planned Giving Department at
(813) 383-5703.
Highlands County benefits
greatly from the programs
offered by The Salvation Army.
These programs include
emergency assistance, summer
camps, League of Mercy and
emergency disaster services.
Emergency assistance covers
those in need of financial assis-
tance, whether with rent, utili-
ties, medical bills, transporta-
tion or other services.
The summer camp program
gives those who may not nor-
mally have a chance to enjoy
crafting, swimming, boating
and other recreational activities.
The League of Mercy visits
shut-ins and health care facility
residents.
Emergency disaster services

things that can fall short of

"Schmidt said that Reapsummer came into his
yard arguing about money," Tyson said in the
report. "He told Reapsummer if he came into his
yard he would shoot him and Reapsummer con-
tinued approaching him."
During a taped interview with Tyson, Schmidt
allegedly expressed remorse but reminded the
officer who gave a warning.
Reapsummer admitted Friday to drinking and
verbally threatening Schmidt the night he was
shot.
"He wouldn't give me the motorcycle or the
money back," he said, explaining that he gave


Schmidt $2,000 for a Harley-Davidson. "He's a
good Harley mechanic."
Reapsummer said Schmidt was a member of
the "Henchmen" an offshoot of the "Outlaws" -
criminal motorcyclists known for being "one per-
centers."
According to the August arrest report, Indiana-
born Schmidt went by the street name "Manson."
"I told them he was whacked out,"
Reapsummer said, explaining that after the initial
shooting incident he was never called or inter-
viewed by the state attorney's office, law
enforcement officers or the newspapers.
He said he was treated as the criminal the night
he was shot, allegedly because of a 1999 misde-
meanor marijuana arrest at the Sebring race track.
"This county is at fault," Reapsummer said.
"They had a chance."

Keely's breed is favored for
its larger ears, which can be no
further apart than the width of
an ear, Keller said.
But, Keely's ears are smaller
than average.
"I love her look," Keller said,
as she took Keely from a judg-
ing ring back to her cage.
Keely didn't get best of


breed, but did garner a first
place ribbon for meeting the
breed's standards and best of
color, because no other kittens
competed in her color scheme.
"It's her first time to show,"
Keller said of 7-month-old
Keely. "The other kittens have
been shown before."
At 8 months, Keely will
move into the adult division.
The cat show continues
today at the armory.

Ja -cks- State park ranger



Jacks and Jills of all skills


TUFFIN' IT
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley

When your

job is like a

vacation
Don't get me wrong. I love
writing for this newspaper.
But if I ever have to get
another job, well, I just might
think about becoming a state
park ranger.
And I still think that after
spending time with Ranger
Judy Buchanan at Highlands
Hammock State Park, where
she and I mostly cleaned bath-
rooms and emptied trash cans
- with Buchanan constantly
urging me to, "put down that
pad, get a move on it please,
faster, faster."
In fact, I had to make two
trips to the hammock to get all
the facts for this story. And
after all that I've had to leave
some of them out.
My first visit came as a
shock.
It happened when I walked
into the park..It was the first
time I had been there in about

SEBRING Park rangers have to be well-versed
and well-rounded equally able to mop floors and
answer questions; make building repairs and imple-
ment erosion control; lecture on history and resolve
differences between campers; start a prescribed burn
and know how to contain it; maintain public relations
and drive a heavy truck and that is only a partial
list.
Park rangers, in short, have to able to do a little of
everything because they are responsible for all of the
day-to-day operations of the park.
The buck stops with them, so to speak, as they
become the arbiters of everything from pine cones to
Pinesol.
As such, the state is looking for people with a broad
background of experience. College degrees are not
considered essential being able to work independ-
ently is.
Don't expect to get rich being a park ranger. The
base salary listed in a recent job listing on People First
an employment Web site used by the state of
Florida is $1,970.45 a month.
But all this doesn't mean park ranger jobs are easy
to come by.
In fact, openings are few and the applicants many,
Katie Flannagan said. She is the information director
for the Florida Division of Recreation and Parks,
which is a part of the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection.
Florida now has 160 state parks encompassing
more than 700,000 acres.
In 2005-06, 18.2 million people visited them.
According to the Web site
www.floridastateparks.org, Highlands Hammock
State Park is among the eight parks that made up the
original state park system.
Highlands Hammock was created in February of
1930 when a group of citizens moved to create a park.
The state park system did not yet exist, so the effort
was a private one.
Margaret Shippen Roebling, who was married to
John A. Roebling II the grandson of the designer
and builder of the Brooklyn Bridge donated the
funds, to buy the original parcel of land in 1930. The
funds included some matching dollars raised by the
local community at Margaret Roebling's request.

Ranger Judy Buchanan has been stationed at Highlands Hammock State Park her entire state park career -
which began about two years ago. Many rangers come to the job having retired from other successful occupations.
Buchanan had, among a variety of things, raised a family before coming to work for the state. She absolutely loves
her work, which is different every day. Here she has just finished an hour long tram tour. While driving the 4 by 4
pulling a trailer, she tells the story of the park, and points out plant and wild life.


But Margaret Roebling died unexpectedly in
October of that same year, leaving the whole project
in question.
Her husband decided to complete her vision, bring-
ing his expertise as an engineer to the task. His only
condition was that the park be protected forever. With
that insured, Roebling built roads, bridges, nature
trails, and a series of dams and canals designed to pro-
tect the area from fires.
The park opened in 1931. It encompassed 1,280
acres.
Amenities and resources were greatly enhanced
when the Civilian Conservation Corps opened a camp
near by, and for six years from 1935 to 1941 -


hundreds of young men worked on construction and
planting projects enhancing the park. In 1937, deep
into the Great Depression, 16,000 people visited it.
Today, the park encompasses 9,250 acres. In 2005-
06 almost 210,000 people visited, many camping in
recreational vehicles or tents.
For more information about Highlands Hammock
State Park call 386-6094. It is at 5931 Hammock
Road, and is open every day of the year from 8 a.m. to
sunset. An entrance fee of $4 per car, is required.

VACATION
Continued from 11A
five years, which means before
the hurricanes of 2004.
Back then the tree canopy
cover was so thick there were
places in the park filled with
deep shadow; they were myste-
rious and delightfully creepy.
So many trees were brought
down during those storms,
however, that now sunlight
cascades in.
Where once it was dark and
atmospheric, it is now so open,
you almost need sunglasses.
Instead of hundreds of
shades of green, woven into a
ceiling, smaller branches cross
arms against a brilliant blue
sky. It is beautiful and sparkly,
but very different from what it
was.
The dark and crowded
woods used to bring home to
me how brave and resilient the
earliest settlers (including the
various native people) must
have been to eke out an exis-
tence from the stunning, but
harsh, physical conditions.
Now, with the cheerful sun-
shine, easy access walkways
and modern amenities, those
difficulties seem worlds away
and harder to imagine.
But the park rangers want to
keep us in touch with that past.
One way they do that is with
the tram I rode on with
Buchanan.
It runs twice a day (provid-
ing there are at least five visi-
tors who want the tour), and
travels a circuit that includes
the most important sites in the
park, as well as vast stretches
that aren't open to the general
public. The tram costs $4 per
adult, $2 for children 12 and
under.
Buchanan drives a pickup
with four wheel drive and pulls
the tram car behind her.
In between quiet moments
allowing for the peace and
beauty of the place to sink in,
she tells visitors the story of
the park, and points out typical
native plants and animals.
When I was with her, she
stopped the truck at several
!spots along the way, and
,hopped out with a pair of lob-
bers or a hook, collecting real
life examples of what she
talked about, like bladder wort
(a small plant which she said
eats mosquito larvae), and
bringing them back to the visi-
tors to examine more closely.
She told jokes and gave out
statistics and inside informa-
tion too.
For example, she described
mud fish ("sort of like a cat
fish, fat, with white meat") that
she said are common in the
area, and gave out a recipe for
cooking some.
"Boil yourself up a large pot
of water," she said, "throw in
plenty of onions and potatoes,
then salt and pepper to taste.
"On a cedar board, clean
your mud fish from top to bot-
tom and then...," here she
paused with a wicked grin
before saying, "then throw it
all away, because your veg-
etable stew will be just about
ready."
She looked with delight at


Nominate a teacher
The deadline for accepting
nominations for the Florida
2006-2007 "Teacher of the
Year" award is midnight on
March 1.
The announcement came
from the award sponsor,
Teachers' Insurance Plan, a car
insurance program exclusively
for members of the educational
community.
Teachers, students and par-
ents can nominate any of the
state's more than 170,000
accredited teachers.
Nomination forms are available
online at www.teachers.
com/toty. To nominate an edu-
cator, or yourself, explain in
250 words or less why this
teacher should be the Teacher


of the Year. Nominees will be
judged on their ability to moti-
vate students, their special tal-
ents and their contribution to
their school, students or educa-
tional community.
The award will include
$1,000 to the winning teacher
and a $500 grant to that
teacher's school. The state win-
ner will also be eligible for the
National Award that includes a
special recognition and a
$2,500 travel certificate.
Winners will be announced at
the start of the next school year.


our signs of confusion. "You
can't eat mud fish," she said
then laughing, "they're disgust-
ing."
So the first day was pure
pleasure.
Then came the second day,
when I helped Buchanan close
the park.

In addition to checking the
bathrooms and mopping the
floors, we emptied all the trash
cans scattered over the park,
and drove through all the
camping areas (there are 159
campsites, most with water and
electric) to make sure every-
thing was calm and in order.
As we accounted for


campers and politely shooed
away day visitors, we closed
gates shutting down the park.
We also checked security
alarms.
I have to admit in some
ways it was tough.
There we were, with the sun
setting through the trees, turn-
ing all the greens into molten
gold. The wind had died a bit,
and a few birds, like a red
shouldered hawk, called out as
they rode the evening drafts
over the park.
All I wanted to do was stop
and watch the sunset, but that
is the one drawback to working
in a paradise you're not


there to relax, you have to real-
ly work.
Which reminds me of a joke
I read just this week. It was
more of a question than a joke
actually. Where do park
rangers go to get away from it
all?
Well the serious answer is:
They don't have to go any-
where.
At least that's Buchanan's
verdict. She had to wait her
turn, but now lives in the park.
When she needs vacation time,
she just goes for a walk.
Buchanan is new to the job.
It is only her second season.
With a varied background that


included some farming, and
having raised a family, she is
typical of many rangers who
come to the field as a second
career. Training is mostly on
the job.
Almost five feet tall, or
maybe just a tic over, she loves
to get physical. She is proud to
have been to firefighting
school, for example, and can
operate the park's heavy equip-
ment.
Buchanan absolutely loves
what she does, especially when
sharing her love of the park
and the environment. For sure,
she is now living out her life's
dream.


In sl


For those who would follow
in her footsteps she recom-
mends patience, and strongly
suggests starting out as a park
volunteer.
So I'm seriously considering
volunteering some time, only I
might get caught sitting down
on the job, mesmerized by all
that wonderful world around
me.

ness person who has a job they
would like to highlight in the

Well, when the candlelight

snow shovels.
Actually, threatening some-
one with a snow shovel isn't
that great an idea. In Dayton,
Ohio, two women got into an
argument about shoveling
snow on a driveway both had
in common. The woman with
the shovel apparently used it
to threaten her adversary.
The other woman trumped
the shovel by pulling out a
can of pepper spray and used
it on her neighbor. Cops
wound up separating the
women, and they each got a
complaint to make their day.
No serious injuries.
And as the last weather
story in this column, a head-
line that surely rates "Ironic
Statement of the Week" can
be found on The Drudge
Report: "House Hearing on
'Warming of the Planet'
Cancelled After Ice Storm."
I want to skip merrily to a
couple of other stories this
week. One concerns John


Edwards, who is one
of the countless peo-
ple currently running
for president, think-
ing about running for


president, or saying they
aren't running for president
while they decide how to tell
everyone they changed their
mind and are running after all.
Edwards had a couple of
people working for him that
are "bloggers." A "blogger,"
for those of you not up with
the latest Internet stuff, is
someone who has what has
been compared to an online
journal. People post all kinds
of things on them. I am a
blogger mine is at
om/.
Anyway, these two women
had said some very nasty
things about Catholics on
their blogs. Senator Edwards
agreed that he was offended
by the posts, but refused to
fire the women. They have
since left the campaign on
their own.
Let me say right now that at
this point I'm not planning to
vote for John Edwards. But I


think that being upset that he
didn't fire two women who
were exercising their First
Amendment free speech
rights was a bit much. Blogs
tend to be very opinionated -
I'm sure some of my posts
would tick people off.
Speaking of opinionated,
The Dixie Chicks won several
Grammys the other day. They
are feeling vindicated. After
all, they took a lot of flak for
criticizing the president dur-
ing a war while they were on
foreign soil and from what I
can figure they still don't
understand why people got
upset with them.
Well, I hope they enjoy
their awards. And if they want
to continue to make music,
they have a right to do so, and -
I won't say otherwise.
But I will still choose not to
buy or listen to any of their
stuff. That, dear ladies, is my
right.

Lockett Estate
unresolved
Editor:
After hearing the proponents
of the acquisition of the Lockett
Estate by Highlands County,
my concerns are magnified by
the unpreparedness of the pre-
senter. More troubling are the
issues that were not resolved
today.
Certainly, estimates for
maintaining a property such as
that proposed County park must
include salaries and contracts
for security, clean up, restroom
cleaning, supplies, and over-
head. Perhaps mowing the grass
and building a bigger boat dock
would be dwarfed by the costs
to maintain such a facility.
Most of the arguments in
favor of the transfer of the prop-
erty from the: water district to
the county were merely blue-
sky dreams, optimistic predic-
tions of volunteers willing to
work for no money, and rough
assessments of the condition of
the buildings on the property.
Also, the proponents of the
acquisition ignore the ongoing
costs of providing security,
repairs, and maintenance for a
project that would serve few,
but cost all property taxpayers
in Highlands County.
More troubling than the costs


of repairing a few building are
the costs of maintaining the
property to include lawn care,
landscaping care, construction
and maintenance of so-called
Americans Disability Act-com-
pliant bathroom facilities,
repair of the buildings, and
security on the property to pre-
vent vandalism. If any bath-
rooms are installed, these facil-
ities must be cleaned after each
day in use. Costs for cleaning
these facilities, which are locat-
ed far off the beaten path,
would be higher than if the
property were located in town.
Also, I heard about the need for
a chief executive officer salary
to oversee and manage the proj-
ect after initial rehabilitation
and repairs are done to the
property.
The few who would benefit,
such as school children on field
trips, bird watchers, hikers, and
campers, would not financially
support the most meager facili-
ties. Relying on volunteers,
grants, and donations is pie-in-
the-sky planning. The current
environment of high property
taxes, high insurance costs, and
high construction and labor
costs negates any benefit that
Highlands County taxpayers
would reap from this project.
While I am not opposed to
preserving the historic site, I am
very strongly opposed to paying


taxes to fund a project that is
simply a waste.
In 2007, the HCC needs to
find ways to lower the property
tax burden for all property own-
ers including homeowners,
renters, and businesses.
Let private owners pay the
burden for the Pearce Lockett
Estate. Highlands County tax-
payers have pressing needs for
road improvements, sheriff's
office updating, and law
enforcement issues. Spending
taxpayers monies on a proposed
tourist destination boondoggle
serves only the preservationists
and a few bird watchers here
from January to March each
year.
I hope that all commissioners
will deny approval after next
month's workshop. Ongoing
maintenance costs will endure
for years after the paltry
$500,000 prize from the water
district is spent the first year. I
agree with Commissioner
Barbara Stewart that most eld-
erly will not use the dangerous
road (U.S. 98) to access the
property. Using a port-a-potty
for sanitation, as suggested by
the presenter, is an example of
the lack of research that the pre-
senter gave to the issue of pub-
lic safety. As soon as anyone is
forced to use a port-a-potty, an
ADA lawsuit could be filed
against the county. Consider


vandalism and security costs
too, when you consider this
project.

Cows feel udderly under


Big dilemma in this area as
we finish up the Highlands
County Fair and all the judging:
Cows feel udderly under appre-
ciated and this mmmm-
mooooooves them to tears. It
also causes smart aleck colum-
nists like me to write puns
about them the lowest form
of humor.
Holy cow.
Let's face it. Cows are funny,
and so are steer. I don't mean to
steer you wrong, but they aren't
exactly the fastest movers and
shakers in the farm animal
industry.
They move slowly and they
appear to have the IQ of a bench
presser. If they moooooved
about in the corporate world
they would be called under-
achievers and moooooved into
the ranks of those who hit the
grass ceiling.


I think differently about cows
and steer now than I did, say,
about 25 years ago, when I
moved to this area when it was
predominantly rural. When I
came from Orlando at a tender
age, I thought female cows gave
us milk and dairy products and
male cows gave us beef. I stand
corrected on the issue now and
can spread the gospel according
to Guernseys.
First some facts about dairy
products and milk cows:
The Guernsey breed was
started on the Isle of Guernsey
by a group of monks about a
thousand years ago.
The Holstein produces the
most milk of all the breeds.
The smallest type of cow
is the Dexter, bred a small size
for household living.
Cows were domesticated
about 5,000 years ago.


Cows can detect
odors up to five miles
away. (Go figure,
maybe they can't
detect their own body
odor).
A 1,000 pound
cow can produce an
average of 10 tons of
manure in a year. *'
Per day, a cow Gra
spends about six hours
eating and eight hours To
chewing cud. Kathy
Daily, a cow gives
350 squirts for a gallon of milk.
There are approximately
920 cow breeds in the world.
M The average cow, when
milked twice a day, produces
about 10 gallons.
The world's biggest
Holstein statue is in New
Salem, N.D.
M It takes about 1.5 gallons

of milk to produce one

Entire Web sites
are devoted to "cow-
dom."
A lot of poetry has
been written about
cows: "How now
brown cow?" and
"Hey, diddle, diddle,
the cat and the fiddle,
the cow jumped over
the moon."
Now there's an
argument that cows are


not underachievers, because
according to this nursery
rhyme, they and not man -
were the first to orbit the moon.
I guess this cow might be called
the Apollo 11 of heaven.
There's also a poem about
never seeing a purple cow, "But
I'd rather see one than be one."

Time to stop taking innocents away from children


The sisterhood group P.E.O of
Highlands County celebrated its 28th
anniversary at a reception at the exqui-
site Rose Tea Room in Sebring on
Thursday, Feb. 8.
Founded by seven students at Iowa
Wesleyan College in Mt. Pleasant
Iowa, Jan. 21, 1869, the group of seven
has now expanded to 1/4 million mem-
bers with chapters in Canada and the
United States.
Using the slogan, "Women Helping
Women Reach For The Stars," 70,000
women have been awarded scholar-
ships and P.E.O loans in excess of $7
million. Five international scholarships
are awarded. The P.E.O International
Peace Scholarship Fund, Cottey
College award, the P.E.O Program for
Continuing Education, P.E.O Scholar
award, the P.E.O Educational Loan.


Invited to speak at the event, I chal-
lenged the group to write their state
representative and Congressmen to
intervene on behalf of the thousand of
voiceless young children, forced in a
world of child prostitution.
The group was informed
that Florida is third in the United
States in the production and distribu-
tion of child pornography. According
to the advocacy group, Standing
Against Global Exploitation (SAGE)
200,000 to 300,000 children are sexual
exploited as child sex slaves in the
United States.
Concerned about the proliferation
of child pornography, Bill McCollum,
Florida's State Attorney stated recently
that there are "people who are having
sex with children as young as 5 years
old." he is asking state lawmakers to


Emto erng













Pauline Auyang

enforce stiffer penalties with a manda-
tory 15-year sentence.
Lured into the child sex by men old


enough to be their grandfather or
father, they are offered a better life,
gifts of brand name sneakers, jeans,
money and other items, these naive
young girls, are baited and reeled in.
There are mothers who are trapped
in the web of drug abuse, and in
attempted to feed the need for drug,
allow their young daughters to be sex-
ually exploited by pimps and
boyfriends in exchange for cash. I
shared this information with them at
their meeting.
I reminded the P.E.O members that
there was a major war in our state and
our country against the innocents of
our children which needed immediate
attention. I pointed out that it appeared
that the wars in other countries were
more important than the war to eradi-
cate the perpetrators of sex crimes


against our children, the children who
are our leaders of tomorrow.
I urged the women to use their influ-
ences to garner support for stiffer leg-
islation nationwide.


Pauline Au yang has been an eti-
quette advisor for Faith Pentecostal
Youth Enrichment program, Vision
Christian Community Youth program,
Blushing Brides Wedding Centre,
Tatianna's Bridal, Blackaestetics
Institute and YDC 2001 and has served

Jan Merop

Wanting to

be president
Did you ever wonder
why anyone would want to
be president? Not just pres-
ident of a country; but,
president of an organiza-
tion, a class or club.
It requires leadership
responsibility and accounta-
bility. It makes one a public
figure opening them for
scrutiny and attack; unfor-
tunately, not always fair or
true. And campaigning is
costly monetarily and in
time.
My only experience in
running for office was run-
ning for president of my
senior class in high school.
Three of us vied for the
position. That third party
effected what had seemed a
pretty fair chance for me to
win.
I remember getting the
word out, making up
posters, flyers and writing
speeches. I recall how it
even changed friendships
according to loyalties.
Though I didn't win, the
process involved even at
that level was taxing.
Though miniscule in

'Steel


Six women bon in beauty
parlor and in real life
By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING "Steel Magnolias," which revolves
around six women in a beauty parlor, will be showing
at Tanglewood Resort clubhouse starting Thursday.
The show opens with Annelle, played by Marilyn
Werry, applying for a job at Truvy's hair salon. Truvy,
portrayed by Judy Chastain, is impressed with her
skills and hires her just in time to help out, since not
only do two regular customers, Ouiser, played by
Rosie Barnes, and Clairee, played by Erma Anderson,
have appointments, but M'Lynn, played by Mary Lou
Simpson, and her diabetic daughter Shelby, played by
Theresa Reynolds, come in for hairstyles in prepara-
tion for Shelby's wedding.
There are plenty of laughs and amusing lines; how-
ever the play is also a tearjerker. There's a tight-knit
feel, which reinforces the close friendship of the
women.
This is Werry's first time on stage. She appreciated
the opportunity to act, as well as the personal growth
she experienced. "My character, Annelle gained confi-
dence also. I loved the portrayal of strong women in
the face of adversity. This is only the second year
Tanglewood Actors Guild produced a play. And there
was an enthusiastic response to continue this tradition.
Everyone contributed, not only in personality, but
with whatever talents we each had to bring forth our
best within the roles and also at practice,"' Werry said.
Anderson was born and raised in Bartow and makes
good use of her southern accent for this play.
Although it's her acting debut, she has past stage
experience singing and dancing. "The part of Clairee,
the former mayor's widow, suits my personality. It's
so great to have this theater group. It's exciting to do
something you've not done before at this age. After
retirement, everything's a challenge, and I really had
to study," Anderson said.
Simpson played M'Lynn, the loving but protective
mother of a daughter with diabetes. "I liked it because
it isin emotional role. She can be funn..,but she also
shows her love. The characters in this play criticize,
yet also support and encourage each other. The other

girls are wonderful actors and well chosen for these
parts. Our director is so knowledgeable. He knew just
how to draw out characteristics in each of us,"
Simpson said.
Barnes, 67, is a seasoned performer. "These women
were all great. They've got their parts down and per-
fectly portrayed each character. I play Ousier, who is
sort of dorky, so I've.hadto.tone do%\ n my uua .

ARTS & LEISURE


Eliminating citrus problems


Many of the homeowner questions
asked at the Master Gardener "help
desk" pertain to citrus problems and
care. First of all, uniform and adequate
soil moisture and a good fertility pro-
gram is important to reduce several
problems and disorders. Trees should be
examined frequently for pests, diseases,
and disorders that reduce the health and
productivity of citrus trees.
Homeowners should keep in mind that
not all problems are easy to diagnose or
require pesticide applications, as the
fruit is not intended for fresh fruit sales.
There is a limit to what you can do and
that weather conditions can cause prob-
lems that may not be avoided. Let's take
a look at some of the "disorders" first.


GROW
SEAS
Ed A


It is natural to have a certain amount of "dead
wood" on citrus trees. Selective pruning may
reduce twig dieback in the interior of the tree
canopy. Excessive dieback on the outside of tree
canopies may result from a number of factors
including freezes, drought, severe pest pressure,
declining diseases such as citrus tristeza virus,
blight, water damage, greasy spot, spray bur, or
other problems causing severe root damage or
leaf drop. The lichens you often see on dead
wood do not cause dieback.
A combination of factors may cause fruit drop.
Whenever fruit is injured, the production of eth-
ylene gas is triggered and the fruit may drop. In
late summer to early fall, excessive fruit drop can
occur due to epidemics of brown rot associated
with extended wet periods and warm tempera-
ture. Minimize water stress with a good water
management program to reduce fruit losses. Low
potassium levels can aggravate fruit drop in
heavy crop load years. The June drop (usually
eight to 10 weeks after bloom) seems to result
from competition between fruitlets and young


leaves for nutrients and water.
Sunburn may occur on fruit exposed
for a long period of time to direct sun-
'light, most often on thin-skinned vari-
eties. The Murcott and Honeybell are
more susceptible to sunburn due to the
open growth habit. Sunburn causes the
drying of the exposed portion of the peel
and the pulp and juice beneath it.
Fruit splitting is primarily a problem
IING caused by high temperature during peri-
WON ods of high humidity and rainfall from
S August through the fall. Damage can
yen also occur when trees take up water from
S rain or irrigation after a long dry period.
Proper tree nutrition and a good water
management program are the best
defense against fruit splitting.
Navel, mandarins, mandarin hybrids, grape-
fruit and Valencia fruit sometimes exhibit drying
of juice vesicles. The problem varies seasonally
and is more of a problem on larger size or late
bloom fruit. Drying appears to be associated with
over-maturity, a lack of water, excessive tree
vigor, extended warm and/or dry fall weather.
Yellow vein chlorosis may be attributed to the
girdling of individual branches, tree trunks or
roots due to a number of factors including water
damage, Phytophthora foot rot, root rot, ant dam-
age, or physical damage by equipment. Yellow
vein chlorosis may also occur in the cool weath-
er of fall and winter due to lack of nitrogen
uptake from the soil.
Next week we will take a look at diseases and
pests of citrus.


Ed Ayen is a volunteer Master Gardener at the
Highlands County Extension Service office, 4509
George Blvd., Sebring. Stop in or phone 402-
6540 for information.

Milne returns to SFCC Matinee Series

Bob Milne plays at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 27, at South Florida
Community College, Avon Park.








PLACES to


Pianist playing ragtime,

boogie-woogie Feb. 27

AVON PARK The master of ragtime
and boogie-woogie piano returns to South
Florida Community College, Highlands
campus, at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb, 27.
Bob Milne plays a wide variety of musi-
cal styles. He can pound out the rhythm and
blues or slow down for waltzes, gospel
hymns, popular songs, or anything else he
fancies!
Milne began his career as a student in the
late '60s in Rochester, N.Y. He started out
not as a pianist, but as a French horn virtu-
oso. He performed in such symphonies as
the Rochester Philharmonic and the
Baltimore Symphony. When the perform-
ances were over, the symphony musicians
would relax at a local saloon. Because he
didn't carry his horn around with him,
Milne soon found himself at the piano,
quickly learning how to accompany the
singers and entertain the crowd.


He developed his piano playing skills
furthermore when he moved to Detroit,
where he pursued piano playing full time.
At that time, he spent his off hours listening
to other talented piano players in the area,
picking up an invaluable education by
observing and comparing, and learning new
tunes on the spot.
He soon developed a high energy playing
style that would capture the attention of
everyone in the room. His style, he later
discovered, was based on a type of off-the-
beat, "ragged" time similar to the styles of
America's early ragtime era of the late
1800s and early 1900s.
As Milne continued to expand his reper-
toire, he also delved into the boogie-woo-
gie, Dixieland and stride piano styles. His
excitement about these styles of music, as
well as the classical music styles of Mozart,
Bach, Beethoven, and many other com-
posers, spurred him on to acquire every bit
of knowledge about them he could find.
Today, Milne enjoys a successful career
as a concert pianist, entertaining audiences


in concert halls, opera houses, and arena
stages from coast to coast. He enthusiasti-
cally shares his knowledge about piano
playing and music in general with his lis-
teners, as well as the incredible histories of
others like him fi musicians and composers
of all eras who learned by listening and
doing.
The SFCC Matinee Series is co-spon-
sored by Tim and Martile
Blackman/Captain D's Seafood and Rick
and Jean Moyer.
Tickets for this performance range in
price from $11 to $14 and may be pur-
chased online 24 hours a day, seven days a
week, at www.southflorida.edu by clicking
on "Performances." Tickets may also be
purchased by calling the SFCC Box Office
at 784-7178 or by visiting the SFCC Box
Office located at the front of the SFCC
Auditorium, 600 West College Drive,

Local women learn how heart disease affects them


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Diana
Albritton, founder of Lunch
Club Wednesday feels its
monthly meetings are a great
way to share life-saving infor-
tation and learn from each -
other. This month's program
focused on heart disease aware-
ness and how the health risks
and symptoms differ for
women.
Albritton's mother, C lyn
Coarsey, shared here it attack
symptoms and-how she experi-
enced pain in her jaw off and on
for two weeks before she saw a
doctor. "I couldn't believe it.
And I was familiar with symp-
toms because my husband had
already had a heart attack,"
Coarsey said.
Marcia Chauncy, a charge
nurse for the Chest Pain Center
at Florida Hospital, was the
main speaker. The center was
accredited in 2005, the 13th in
Florida. She said, "Heart
attacks are the leading cause of
women's death. We encourage
people to not ignore symptoms,
whether it's in the shoulder
blade, jaw, a stomach ache,
sweats, nausea, anxiety, or that
overwhelming 'just don't feel
right' attack women's symp-
toms differ from men."
When a patient arrives at
Florida Hospital Emergency, a
12-lead EKG is administered
within the first 10 minutes.
Thrombolytic agents and clot
busters are given within 30
minutes if they've determined
the symptoms are acute. A baby
aspirin can improve the overall
outcome by recognizing early
symptoms. In addition, blood
can be drawn in their on-site
stat lab to further determine

Sebring Elks Lodge. She was chosen as the CeCe Courage award
winner.


condition within the hour. If life
threatening, their Florida Flight
One is on hand and only takes
25 minutes to get the patient to
an interventional cardiologist at
Florida Hospital's Orlando
Heart Center.
"We focus on healthy living.
We have three fitness centers
and offer a health lecture series.
Our community wellness coor-
dinator, Sara Rosenbaum, can
be reached at 386-6380 to set
up corporate screenings and
help educate with classes on
smoking cessation. It benefits
everyone," Chauncy said.


Petite 117-pound Barbara
Varney didn't fit the heart attack
patient profile. She exercised
regularly, didn't smoke, ate
healthy and had no familial risk.
At first she ignored the signs.
She had pain in her shoulder
and upper back, tingling in her
arm, and was very tired. But
when she felt tightness in her
chest, she- went straight to
Florida Hospital and received
fast treatment and stabilization.
She knows no one is immune to
a heart attack.
Roberta Cove, assistant vice
president of outpatient services,


Marcia Chancey, registered nurse and charge nurse at The Chest
Pain Center at the Florida Hospital in Sebring, attaches this chest
pain patient to a cardiac monitor to access cardiac rhythms and
symptoms of acute cardiac problems and listens for lung and heart
sounds. Chancey was the main speaker at the Lunch Club
Wednesday meeting.


said that Cardiac Scoring at
Florida Hospital's Seascape
Imaging is an evaluation of the
coronary arteries. CT may
detect the presence of any calci-
fication, which is indicative of
coronary artery disease. The
goal is to obtain a baseline in a
patient and then do follow-ups


to determine progression of dis-
ease and determine what med-
ical intervention would success-
fully reduce the risk of a cardiac
event.
"However, this may not be
for everyone. A physical with
your physician, paying atten-
tion to signs and symptoms and


leading a healthy lifestyle
should always be foremost in
your plan for continued good
health. But if you have a strong
family history of disease and
would like a baseline screening
test, then Cardiac Scoring may)"
be for you," Cove said.
Coronary artery disease is the
most common type of heart dis-
ease and the leading cause of
heart attacks. When a person's
arteries become hard and nar-
row, blood has a hard time get-
ting to the heart. This can lead
to angina. This chest pain or
discomfort is often in the chest,
but sometimes in the shoulders,
arms, neck, jaw or back. It can
also feel like indigestion or an
upset stomach. Angina means a
person is more likely to have a
heart attack.
A heart attack occurs when
an artery is severely or com-
pletely blocked, and the heart
does not get the blood it needs
'for more than 20 minutes. This
means that other organs, which
normally get blood from the
heart also, don't get enough
blood. Signs include shortness
of breath (feeling like you can't
get enough air), swelling in
feet, ankles and legs, and
extreme fatigue.
Heart arrhythmias are
changes in the beat of the heart.
Most people have felt dizzy,
faint, out of breath or had chest
pains at one time. Often these
symptoms are harmless, but as
you age, arrhythmias are more
likely. But if you have flutters
and other symptoms such as
dizziness or shortness of breath
(feeling like you can't get
enough air), get to the doctor
right away.


-Facts women need to know about heart disease


Heart disease affects more
than 8 million women in the
United States, killing 267,000
each year. It's the leading cause
of death among women even
aix times deadlier than breast
cancer. Being aware of the risks
and taking-steps, toward better
Health is vital for women in bat-
tling this killer.
Some factors are uncontrol-
lable a family history
increases your risk, as well as
age (over age 55). However,
smart choices and a healthy
lifestyle can lower your risk by
82 percent.
Keep blood pressure and
cholesterol in check. Eat less
salt and fat.
Maintain a healthy weight.
Add more fruits, vegetables,
low-fat dairy and whole grains
to your diet. Excess weight
strains your heart and increases
your risk. Exercise at least 30
minutes most days of the week.
Three 10-minute periods will
work, too. Take a brisk walk on
your lunch break or take the
stairs instead of an elevator.
Know your risk for dia-
betes. Two out of three people
with diabetes die of heart dis-
ease or stroke. Type 2 diabetes
in adulthood increases if you
are overweight, physically inac-
tive or have a family history of
diabetes.
Quit smoking. Kicking the
habit for one year will drop
your risk by more than half.

Some are sudden and intense,
but most heart attacks start
slowly, with mild pain or dis-
comfort. Often people aren't
sure what's wrong and wait too
long before getting help. Most
involve discomfort in the center
of the chest that lasts more than
a few minutes, or that goes
away and comes back. It feels
like uncomfortable pressure,
squeezing, fullness or pain.
Discomfort can also occur
in other areas of the upper
body: in one or both arms, the
back, between the shoulder
blades, neck, jaw, or stomach.
Shortness of breath may
occur with or without chest dis-
comfort.
Other signs: Breaking out
in a cold sweat, nausea, vomit-
ing, anxiety, fatigue or light-
headedness.

Join Those Who Are Studying and Practicing
"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.

difficult to treat successfully


We can't really
blame lack of long
term goals, irrespon-
sibility, relationship
failures, grandiose
self-worth or patho-
logical lying,
because the majority
of these people get
along somehow in
society without com-
mitting crimes.
Admittedly they are
not nice to be around,

but these attributes
are only a part of the make-up
of a psychopath.
We can't really say that all
juvenile delinquents, or victims
of childhood abuse will grow
up to be psychopaths, because
they don't all continue to repeat
what they witnessed as chil-
dren.
So, can we blame our culture
evolution? Consider this quote:
"If we can effectively kill the
national pride of just one gener-
ation, we have won that coun-
try. By making readily available
drugs of various kinds, by giv-
ing a teenager alcohol, by prais-
ing his wildness, by flooding
him or her with sex literature,
and by advertising to his and
her psycho-political prepara-
tion, we create the necessary
attitude for chaos, idleness and


worthlessness." It's
hard to look around
and deny this is hap-
Spening, especially
realizing that each
generation contended
that their youth were
going down the tube.
The above quote is
attributed to Joseph
AITERS Stalin, and that
immediately brings to
Stroup mind a framework of
politics and cultural
development. If you
are tempted to say, "Oh no, that
couldn't ever happen in
America," you might want to
walk through our local mall on
Friday evening.
"It seems certain from the
evidence that a positive trans-
formation of human nature isn't
going to come about through a
great spiritual awakening,
socio-economic reforms, or a
spontaneous desire among the
peoples of the world to be nice
to each other. But it's quite pos-
sible that, in the long run, the
psychopathic program of suf-
fering will lose out because
misery is not a stable strategy.
In a state of increasing misery,
victims will seek to escape it,"
based on Laura Knight-
Jadczyk, at
www.cassiopaea.com.


How can we possibly go on
from here? How can we "put
this behind us" and "get
through this somehow" with the
monumental amount of grief we
see in the families and friends
in our community. Lets start
with this fact: You will never
get over this. One doesn't "get
over" grief, in the same way
one gets over having the flu.
And we can't put a cast on a
broken heart. Nor does "time
heal all wounds," especially the
wounds created from a shock-
ing, sudden, senseless murder.
We learn to take the grief
with us as we continue with our
lives. As the protective sleeve
of "shock" subsides, and our
emotions resurface, the pain
from the loss often reappears
quite intensely at first, before
quieting itself in a corner of our
hearts. The bruised heart is very
sensitive for a long time, and
subject to being bruised again
- in the same way a bruise on
our body seems to be sensitive
long after the discoloration on
the skin disappears.
No one can take our memo-
ries away from us. There are
two sides to this thought: On
one side, all the warm, loving,
happy memories are always
available for us to refer to
whenever we want to draw on


them. On the other side, the
memory of the loss is always
readily available as well.
However, we can only lose Sgt.
Nick Sottile once, and forever
after we are referring to the
memory of losing him.
If you are in need of help cir-
cumnavigating these traumatic
events, please remember there
are many counselors and organ-
izations in Highlands County to
help you. In addition, there are
three Hospice organizations
offering grief counseling to
individuals in our community
irrespective of whether your
loved one died as a patient of
hospice. The most difficult step
you will take is the first step.
And that first step is picking up
the telephone and asking for
help.

The Four Freshman performing two sl


AVON PARK For the first
time, the South Florida
Community College Jazz Series
has scheduled two performanc-
es for the same day. The Four
Freshmen will perform two
shows at 2 and 7:30 p.m.
Wednesday, Feb. 28, in the
SFCC University Center
Auditorium, Highlands cam-
pus.
When jazz lovers think of
Indiana jazz, they think of
Richmond and its recording
studio, or they remember
Lionel Hampton, J.J. Johnson,
Red Nichols, and Hoagy
Carmichael. The list could go
on and on. One name often
overlooked is a vocal/instru-
mental group that has been
hanging around since 1948.
A little more than 58 years
ago, two brothers, Ross and
Don Barbour, formed a quartet
called Hal's Harmonizers,
while they were students at
Indiana's Butler University.
Those of us who were students
in the 1950s and 1960s remem-
ber the group by the name they
eventually adopted, The Four
Freshmen. Their jazzy sound
caught on and remained popu-
lar into the mid-1960s.
In 1948, at Butler perform-
ances, Hal's Harmonizer's top
two songs were "Moonglow"
and "The Christmas Song." As
the group developed its free,
improvisational approach to
harmony singing, new mem-
bers, Bob Flanigan and Hal
Kratzsch, were added to the
sound. Flanigan remained with
the group through 1992.
Jazz greats at that time such
as Dizzy Gillespie and Woody
Herman took notice, but big
band leader Stan Kenton
brought the group to the atten-
tion of his Capitol record label.
The Four Freshmen started
pumped out hits beginning with
"It's a Blue World" (1952), fol-
lowed by "Mood Indigo"
(1954), "Day by Day" (1955)
and "Graduation Day" (1956).
In 1955, Voices in Modern was
released. It was the first of 13


albums in a five-year period
with Capitol.
New lineups continue to per-
form into the 21st century, and
they continue to attract warm
audiences along with garnering
awards such as Downbeat mag-
azine's "Vocal Group of the
Year" in 2000. Then, in 2001,
the prestigious jazz label,
Mosaic, released a multi-CD
box-set of the group's 1950s
records.. In 2003, Jazz times
also named the group as "Vocal
Group of the Year." The Four
Freshmen's popularity remains
today as it did almost six
decades ago.
Today's Four Freshmen are
Vince Johnson, who joined the
group in 1999 and sings bari-
tone and plays bass, guitar, and
trombone; drummer Bob
Ferreira, who has been with the
group since 1992; guitarist and
lead singer, Brian Eichenberger,
joined them in 1996; and trum-


peter Curtis Caldero

AVON PARK A special traveling exhibit
celebrating Florida's traditional but seldom-told
folktales has made it to the Museum of Florida
Art and Culture, on the Highlands campus of
South Florida Community College.
Known as Fired Mud/Telling Stories, the
exhibit is now open through Saturday, Feb 24.
The displays are free and open to the public.
The educational exhibit, based at the Museum
of Florida History in Tallahassee, links local arts
education programs with community arts
resources, such as SFCC's MOFAC particu-
larly when exhibit content reflects topics of
statewide significance. The exhibit explores
"Uncle Monday and Other Florida Tales," a
unique collection of folktales reflecting the
diverse people, places and events from various
points in Florida history.
The tales were first collected by Kristin G.
Congdon and illustrated by the late Kitty Kitson
Courtesy photo Petterson, whose work was donated to the state
museum.
Professional educators have since developed
hows curricula designed to encourage Floridians to
examine their traditional stories and to create
n, the most new stories of their own. The curricula materials
the band, provide lessons in the visual arts, language arts,
and theater arts. The eight illustrated "Uncle
series is co- Monday" stories in the collection serve as an
and Lisa instructional "hook" to motivate students to
id Johnson become storytellers themselves.
Highlands Petterson's illustrations provide a vivid depic-
tion of the tales, giving historically accurate pic-
been strong tures that help modern children understand the
men's two many cultural influences that made Florida.

will be getting married soon,
I'm keeping my up do. I guess
I'm kind of living the part.
Director Joe Morano did an
excellent job selecting the
actors. We all bonded and I
think it will be reflected in the
play. We all just clicked and
will be friends afterward. And
that's in keeping with the story
of the play also," Reynolds
said.
Although this is Chastain's
first time on stage, she felt she
related well to Truvy because
she's also extroverted. "She
was not difficult to play. I felt
comfortable with this. The best
part is the new relationships
I've developed with people
that I didn't know before.
Learning cues was the most
difficult for me. Memorizing
was fun and my two grandchil-
dren helped me with it this
summer. I had feared this
might be hard, but our director
was positive, supportive and
gave us feedback. He's great to
work with," Chastain said.
The director, Morano, was a
theatre arts teacher for 25
years. He chose this play
because there are more women
than men available to act. "I'm
partial to this play, and love
working with women, because
they're so conscientious and
sensitive. They always get
things done. 'Steel Magnolias'
has a strong message. It shows
how women handle things
through life. They usually
come together as a group and
lean on each other for moral
support. These actors all have
good camaraderie. They're
each cast in a perfect part for
them. I hope everyone will
come out and enjoy a wonder-
ful play," Morano said.
"Steel Magnolias" will run
at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday
and at 2 p.m. Saturday at the
Tanglewood clubhouse. Tickets
are $10 and on sale at the
Tanglewood clubhouse from

we have all of the facts. Our

admiration he receives from
many will have been due him

One thing I admire about
President George Bush is that
he has determined to lead this
nation down a righteous path
in our values and ethics -
keeping our foundation of faith
in God alive. Another version
of the Bible, "The Message,"
says it this way: "God-devo-
tion makes a country strong;
God-avoidance leaves people
weak."
I pray history will give him
the credit due; and, we as a
people will be devoted to God
and keep our country strong.

College Softball

Panthers leave a lot

on the table in split

SFCC strands 23 runners on
base in Friday doubleheader
By SCOTT DRESSEL
scott.dressel@ newssun.corn
AVON PARK It's never good to leave
your teammates standing out in the cold, but
that's just what the South Florida Community
College Lady Panthers did a lot of Friday
night.
The Panthers stranded a total of 23 runners
onbase in-their-doubleheader-against Miami-
Dade, which made a long, cold night even
colder, despite getting a dramatic 5-4, 10-
inningwin in the opener.
"We wasted a lot of opportunities and gave
away a lot of runs with errors," SFCC coach
Carlos Falla said after ending
SFCC the night with a 5-2 loss to the
5 1 Sharks in which the Panthers
had 11 runners left on base and
gave up three unearned runs.
Miami-Dade "We've got to work on it.
4 5 When you've got (more than)
20 players left on base in a
doubleheader, you're not going
to win a lot doing that."
The Panthers gave up two runs one of
them unearned in the top of the first inning
of the nightcap and never recovered, leaving a
pair of runners on base in each of the first.two
innings.
It was 3-0 before the Panthers got on the
board in the third when Jessica Pauley led off
with a single and scored on Samantha
Waldron's double.
But, despite having the bases loaded with
one out, that was all the offense the Panthers
could muster in the inning.
Back-to-back throwing errors in the top of
the fifth led to two more unearned runs for the
Sharks and a 5-1 lead, and the Panthers could

Mikula, Oritz

both take third

place at state
By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun. cor
LAKELAND It was an eventful, if not
superlatively successful, final day of the state
wrestling meet for the Highlands County rep-
resentatives, which ended with Sebring 189-
pounder Tim Mikula and Avon Park 215-
pounder Josue Ortiz both standing on the
podium at the Lakeland Center with third-
place medals.
Having qualified six wrestlers for state -
three apiece from Sebring and Avon Park -
five had succeeded in making it to Saturday's
medal contention.
Sebring's Shaanan Spiegel and Avon
Park's Kemosi Hatten and James Bland were
taking the wrestleback route toward bringing
home some hardware, while Mikula and
Ortiz were still alive along the upper bracket.
Mikula and Ortiz both lost their semifinal
matches on Friday Mikula by a 6-3 score
to Suwannee's Lee Laxton and Ortiz on a fall
at 3:28 to Vance Simmons of University
Christian but by having already advanced
to the semifinals, they were assured of a
medal.
They each secured that chance at winning a
third-place medal by winning their next
matches convincingly Saturday.
Mikula took care of Chaminade's Ronald
Andre St. Gerard with a 6-1 decision, while
Ortiz dominated Jordan Scott of Newsome,
9-0.
"We sent one wrestler to state last year
(Bland), and he went 0-2," Avon Park coach
Lee Elder said after Ortiz's win. "This year
we sent three. Two of them went 2-2, and
Josue is still going. It's a real step for our
program."
Another step was taken when Ortiz pinned
Kenny Polanco to take third place for Avon
Park's first-ever wrestling medal.
"It feels great, for the program and for
him," Elder said.
"Everything he's accomplished he's done it
through hard work and doing things the right
way."
Mikula saw a familiar foe in his third-place
match, having beaten Sam Johnson 2-1 in
Friday morning's quarterfinal.
A back-and-forth battle saw Mikula edge
Johnson again, 5-4, for another third-place
medal.
"I was disappointed when I lost in the
semifinals after finishing second last year,"
Mikula said. "After I lost, I just wanted to go
home. But I dug within myself to stay
focused, so it means a little more this year to
have been able to come back like that."
Unfortunately, Spiegel, Hatten and Bland
all fell in their second-round wrestleback
matches Saturday morning, meaning there
would be only two local medalists.
Spiegel fell 14-0 to last year's state champ
at 145 pounds, Zack Mastro.

"I wrestled him earlier this year and it was
a lot closer of a match," Spiegel said. "I did-
n't do a real good job this time, and (Mastro)
was pretty mad that he wasn't going to get to
repeat (as state champ)."
"It was the luck of the draw," Sebring head
coach David Cunningham said. "Shaanan lost


a real close match (Friday) and then to have
the defending state champ fall into the
wrestleback."
Hatten took a fall at the 4:02 mark of his
match with Justin Woods of Cardinal
Newman, while Bland was edged out by
Brandyn Kuhn of Hernando, 3-2.

Streaks, Devils get Early Bird wins

Sebring holds off Sebastian, Avon Park outslugs Lake Placid


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne @newssun.conm
AVON PARK The air may have
been on the chilly (OK, frigid) side, but
that sure didn't stop the action from
heating up at Charles Head Field in
Avon Park Friday night during the final
seeding night of the Bill Jarrett Ford
Early Bird Tournament.
Avon Park outlasted Lake Placid in
an opening-game slugfest, 18-8, before
Sebring survived a shaky seventh to top
Sebastian, 8-4, in the finale.
The result landed Lake Placid in
Saturday's game for fifth place against
.Lake Region, while Avon Park would
do battle with Sebastian in the third-
place game.
Sebastian wound up in that game due,
in part, to an efficient Sebring offense
and a dominant performance turned in
from Blue Streak starter Chaz Abeln.
After surrendering a two-out, first-
inning home run to Steven Tunstoll,
Abeln worked his way through the
Shark order like a high-powered snow-


blower through a freshly covered drive-
way (one has to make the most of their
cold-weather analogies on a night like

this).
Abeln went five
innings, giving up just
that one run and just two
more hits while striking
out 10.
He helped the offense
get on track as well, sin-
gling to lead off the first
and eventually scoring
on a wild pitch, then
blasting a two-run shot
over'the fence, scoring
himself and Nick
Maloyed, for a 3-1 lead.
Tony Vazquez then
walked and came around
to score on a Colt


Williams triple in the fourth, before the
Blue Streaks broke the game open in
the sixth.
J.C. Shoop hustled out an infield sin-
gle and had Mike Jones come in to run


for him. Cory Ritter drew a walk and a
sharp Maloyed single loaded the bases
before Abeln drove Jones in with a sin-
gle and Ritter crossed the plate on a
double play.
Charley Peck and Vazquez both took
walks before Joey Disimone drove
home Maloyed and Peck with a single.
With the lead now 8-1, it was just
three outs to victory.
But Disimone, who had come on in
relief in the sixth, had a little trouble
with the Sharks.
"They're a very good hitting team,
and they were going to put the ball in
play," Sebring head coach Hoppy
Rewis said.
"With this cold weather, it was tough,
but they were going to swing it."
They were able to in the seventh
inning, combining three singles and a
double to bring in three runs and narrow
the gap.
But fireballer Steven Fortner was

HISTORY LESSON


YEARS AGO
Feb. 18, 2002: Avon Park managed just enough offense to back up Allison Kelly's 4-hit, 14-strike-
out pitching performance in a 2-1 win over Frostproof. Sebring's KrissyTownsend also turned in a dom-
inant pitching performance, no-hitting Lake Placid as the Blue Streaks took a 13-0 victory.
10 YEARS AGO
Feb. 18, 1997: The Sebring Lady Blue Streaks advanced to the South I Regional semi-finals with a
50-42 win over Cypress Lake. Up 45-34 with 1:30 left in the game, Sebring saw its lead cut to 45-42
over the next 40 seconds. But four free throws fromTamika McGahee and one from Lucia Heston (team
high 15 points) sealed the win.

WINS
Continued from 1D
called in and put the final
Sebastian batter on ice with a
strikeout for the win, and a
matchup with Auburndale for
the tournament championship
in a game that was not com-
plete at press time on
Saturday.
Avon Park 18
Lake Placid 8
In the first game on Friday,
Avon Park started the scoring
frenzy in the home half of the
first, riding RBI singles from
Kyle Jackson, Luke Sedlock
and Corey Topa for a 3-0 lead.
But the Lake Placid offense
got ignited soon enough, scor-
ing four runs in the second,
two in the third and single
runs apiece in the fourth and
fifth.
Tyler Wherry and Carlos
Sosa had RBIs in the second,
Bryan Reasbeck added a two-
run double in the third and
Omar DeJesus scampered
home with the fifth-inning
run on a dropped third strike.
But while Lake Placid was
putting its eight runs up on
the board, the Red Devils
offense was on fire, although
it unfortunately didn't gener-
ate any literal heat for the
shivering fans.
Chavious Gordon had a
two-run single as part of a
three-run third to match
Logan Hunter's two RBIs in
the fourth.

Senior Softball

Royal Palms takes over top spot


News-Sun photo by DANIEL HOEHNE
Sebring's Chaz Abeln fires a pitch to the plate Friday night at
Head Field during the Streaks' win over Sebastian.


Chad Wright and Sosa also
tacked on an RBI apiece in
the fourth, helping Avon Park
to an eight-run inning.
A single run was added in
the fifth, and three more in
the sixth, ending the game
early on Hunter's two-run
double.
"We had our hopes real
high after we made one error


in two ball games at the First
Pitch Classic," Avon Park
head coach Mort Jackson
said. "And then to come out
last night (in a 15-0 loss to
Auburndale), I don't know
how to explain what hap-
pened.
"It was a sobering reality
call, but the kids bounced
back and learned from it."

Special to the News-Sun
Thursday was cool and
gloomy, but the Sebring
Senior Softball League teams
had business as usual on the
diamonds. In Lake Placid,
Royal Palms (9-2) used two
grand slams to beat Miller's
Central Air 20-10 in a battle
of league leaders.
One slam came from the
bat of Bob Fox, who was
responsible for a total of five
RBIs, and the other came
from Charlie Quinn. Bob
Floodine and Bob Weiss each
belted a home run and triple
by Ross Anderson tripled for
Royal Palms.
A combination of errors
kept Miller's (8-3) down. Bob
Palmer and Jim Hensley con-
tributed three hits each, while
five others managed two hits
apiece.
The Silent Salesman (4-6)
owned boasting rights after a
14-9 win over Discount
Aluminum (3-8) at Desoto
City. Leading the 22-hit
attack for the Salesman were
Dick Harris and Roque
Socarras with three hits each.
Six others had two hits to pro-
duce the remaining scoring.
Discount Aluminum's Bob
Iott was 4-for-4 and Paul
Stevenson was 3-for-4.
The Rebels (4-6) had their
bats in top shape against
Lubys at Lincoln Heights
with a 13-10 win. Leading
their hitting pack was Fred
Boyd, who was 5-for-6. Those
with four hits each were
Elwood Black, Glen Moore
and Jack Grosso, who also hit
a double.
Tony Caristo also had four
hits including a triple and
Tom Morrissette had three
hits with a homer. Adding to
the batting were Stan Turl and
Don Matthews, both with
three hits.
The Luby's (4-7) efforts
were aided by Dick Schiltz,
who homered and was credit-
ed with hree Rtps, and Rltss'
Mbodying, who pounded out, t


a triple and single.
There was no sensational
scoring on Tuesday, but at
Lincoln Heights field, Silent
Salesman had good hitting
and consistent pitching
against Luby's to come out on
top with an 8-2 score.
Luby's retired the side in
order in sixth, seventh and
eighth innings, but could not
mount an offensive charge.
Leading the Salesman offense
were Julian Vanisacker, Don
Cunningham and Jerry
Johnston, scratching out two
hits each. Richard Godfrey
slugged the only double of the
day.
Luby's, which was score-
less until the sixth inning,
finally managed two runs to
avoid a shutout. Contributing
with two hits in an 11-hit
showing were Bob Silvia, Jim
Maynard, Howard Southwick
and Russ Moody. Luby's hurt
the Salesman's scoring with
three double plays.
In Lake Placid Miller's
Central Air overshadowed the
Rebels with a final score of
12-8. The Rebels outhit
Millers, but failed to outscore


them.
Howard Carney homered
and Tom Walsh had three hits
including a homer for
Miller's. Dave Holloway and
Don Teague had three hits
each. The Rebels' pack leader
was Don Matthews, who was
5-for-5. Tom Morrissette and
Rollie Carlson each had four
hits, and following them with
three hits were Jack Grosso
and Fred Boyd, who also had
a double.
At DeSoto City, Royal
Palms celebrated 16-10 win
over Discount Aluminum.
Mustering three hits each
were Brian Pluta and Bob
Weiss and getting on base
with a double were Tommy
Gaiownik, Jim Quartier and
Bob Floodine, who also was
responsible for four RBIs.
Discount Aluminum's John
Smith smacked a triple, while
Jim Larnard was 4-for-4. Ray
Wilson and Dave Wagner
contributed their share with
three hits each.
There is still a need for out-
fielders in the 65-and-over
league. For information, call

SPLIT
Continued from 1D
only manage an unearned run
in the top of the seventh
before a double play ended
the game.
Falla said the cold weather
in the Panthers' first home
night game ever were no
excuse for how his team
played.
"It was just as cold for
them," he said. "They won
and we didn't."
Pauley led off the opener
with a solo home run for
SFCC, but the Panthers
quickly fell behind 2-1. They
missed a chance to blow the
game open in the third, load-
ing the bases with only one
out but managing just one run
in the inning on Mallory
Drooger's RBI bunt single.
SFCC took a 3-2 lead into
the final inning, but gave up a
run with two outs to send the
game into extra innings. The
Sharks scored in the top of
the eighth, but that was
answered by an RBI single
from Pauley to knot things at
4-4.
That's where the score
remained until the 10th
inning, when Rachel
Holloway drew a walk and
faked a steal of second, alert-
ly getting into a rundown that
allowed Carlie Trudell to
steal home with the winning
run.
Kasey Barrett pitched all
10 innings for the Panthers,
striking out 14.
