MOFAC exhibit showcases pioneer history


Special to the News-Sun
Anyone who's ever won-
dered how the first pioneers
made a living off the land of
central Florida can gain an
appreciation of the hardships
and economics behind early
enterprises at South Florida
Community College's March
5-April 6 photographic exhib-
it called "White Sand, Black
Gold and Sweet Water."
The exhibit is hosted by
SFCC's Museum of Florida
Art and Culture on the
Highlands Campus in Avon
Park. The presentation focus-
es on the early history of what
is now known as Highlands,
Charlotte, DeSoto, Glades
and Hardee counties and is
free and open to the public.
A special interpretive pro-
gram, "Peace River
Pioneers," is scheduled at the
museum from 2 p.m. Sunday,
March 11.
During Florida's pioneer
history, DeSoto was a much
larger county that has since
been split into five more man-
ageable ones. The raw land
offered settlers a combination
of white sandy and black
muck soils, which were soon
developed into citrus groves
and cattle ranches enter-
prises that still flourish today.
The Hardee town of
Sweetwater, near present-day
Zolfo Springs, was an early
pioneer settlement named for


the sweet taste of the local
water, as well as the waters of
the Peace River and the many
lakes dotting the region.
The exhibit includes photo-
graphs depicting the land-
scape as the pioneers found it
in the 1800s, along with 30-
by-48-inch historical time-
lines and interpretive panels
that discuss their significance.
It includes 12 16-by-20-inch
environmental images show-
ing the variety of native habi-
tats, including cypress
swamps, pinelands, scrub,
lakes, prairies, and the Peace
River.
Interpretive and text panels
highlight some of the most
significant events and people
of each of the five counties
once known as "DeSoto
County." The exhibit includes
excerpts of early pioneers'
writings about the area, per-
sonal stories and historical
sketches.
The writings include stories
from the book "Ain't That
Something," a collection of
interviews of early Hardee
County residents; and
excerpts from "DeVane's
Early Florida," "Heartland
Heritage," and Jennie
Reninger's autobiography.
Dr. Canter Brown, author
of several books about
Florida's history who served
as humanities scholar for the
project, will present a special

School, comforts her daughter, 1-year-old Araceli Reyes

high school's teen parenting program. Marta is com-

start. Sixteen other young parents are also part of the
program, which includes a few fathers. The children, up
to 3 years of age, attend a day care center on campus
run by the Redlands Christian Migrant Association,
while their parents attend school. 'We do not glorify teen
pregnancy,' staff member Katrina Caldwell said. 'We are
addressing the issue.'

During the years of the Great Depression, even children worked. This 1930s photo, provid-
ed by the Florida State Archives, was shot at the Coca-Cola Bottling Company in Wauchula.


MOFAC program called
"Peace River Pioneer Days"
at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 11.
The program will complement
MOFAC's permanent exhibit
that includes fossils excavat-
ed along the stretch of the
Peace River known as "Bone
Valley," where fossils date as
far back at the Pleistocene era
some 10,000 to 1.8 million
years ago.
The point of the exhibit is


to educate modern Floridians
about the history of their
state, create a sense of place
about historical events, and
create a higher awareness
about the environmental and
economic issues that shaped
the region's development.
The exhibit was developed
with assistance from the his-
torical societies in Avon Park,
Lake Placid, and Sebring;
DeSoto County author


Howard Melton; Spessard
Stone; Geraldine Crews; Jim
Kelly, editor of The Herald-
Advocate; and Megan
McKibben, executive director
of Main Street Wauchula.
Sponsors of the exhibit are
the Florida Humanities
Council and Wauchula State
Bank. A smaller version of the
exhibit will be presented at
Wauchula State Bank in
Wauchula in the near future.

Super Hero FCAT-Man, played by Hill-Gustat Middle School Assistant Principal Ted Evans, greets
students Cori Chapman (left) and Kim Pagan Friday on the sidewalk between classes and encour-
ages them to be ready for FCAT testing during the next week. FCAT testing begins Monday.
FCAT-Man first dropped in during the taping of the Eagle News Network and commandeered the
production studio. Carrying his huge number 2 pencil, FCAT-Man challenged the students to help
him fight absenteeism and apathy during the upcoming testing by being at school every day and
being determined to put their best efforts into taking the tests. During the course of the day, FCAT-
Man would suddenly appear from thin air along the sidewalks of the campus to encourage students
to do well. FCAT-Man also glided into classrooms, surprising teachers and students alike.



Spin control sought on triathlon


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING When talking
triathlons, spin usually refers to
the cycling leg of the multi-
sport competition.
But, on the heels of a
Thursday meeting of the Ridge
Trials Association, local triath-
letes feel a negative spin is
being peddled on the Heartland
Triathlon, which debuted last
year.
"I was backed into a corner
and interrogated for 45 min-
utes," said Dan Andrews,
Greater Sebring Chamber of
Commerce executive director
and chairman of the Heartland
Triathlon committee.
He said he was accused of
usurping the competition for
the benefit of the chamber and
his true intentions were ques-
tioned Thursday, when he
showed up to the Ridge Trails
meeting that included a stenog-
rapher and a Highlands Today
reporter. The News-Sun was not
invited.
Andrews resigned Jan. 29 as
vice president of Ridge Trails
and as a board member, Ridge
Trails president Merritt O'Brien
said Saturday.
"I wanted to do it in the
Sunshine," O'Brien said of call-
ing Highlands Today Editor
Richard Hensley and having the
meeting transcribed. "I wanted
to have Andrews deal honestly
and fairly with us. I don't think
he's done that."
Andrews said the idea of a
Highlands County triathlon sur-
faced years ago, when he and
Shawn Lenahan operated D&S
Cycles.
Triathletes such as Eric
Moore, Heidi Crutchfield, Jeff
Carlson and others frequenting
the business would ask him to
sponsor one, but he didn't have
the time to commit, Andrews
said.
The business closed in 2003
after a falling out between the
owners, Andrews went to work
for Carlson and became a board


Busnes Lquiatins


member of Ridge Trails, which
received its non-profit status
toward the end of that year.
He was hired in March 2005
by the Sebring Chamber, but
the gears were already turning
in 2004 on what would become
the Heartland Triathlon.
"We didn't want to rush it,"
Andrews said, explaining why
the race didn't happen in 2005
as was intended by Ridge
Trails.
Held in July 2006, the inau-
gural event was an overwhelm-
ing success according to the
major players Ridge Trails,
the Sebring Chamber, Florida
Hospital Heartland Division,
city of Sebring and the
Highlands County Board of
County Commissioners.
Andrews said the Heartland
Triathlon committee spent near-
ly $50,000 to realize a profit of
$25,000, which was given to
Ridge Trails, the sole benefici-
ary in 2006.
For 2007, which organizers
such as Patrick High and
Carlson boast will be better, it
has been suggested that other
non-profits in Highlands
receive a share in the proceeds
to reward them for their volun-
teerism.
"It's a way to positively
impact the community," High
said. "When people start to get
an entitlement mindset, it turns
off the people who do it volun-
tarily."
The ramifications from
corporate sponsors to race-day
volunteers on the route is
that people might pull out of the
Gene E. Harry was bor July 10, 1931 in Pontiac,
MI; he passed away Monday, February 19, 2007 sur-
rounded by his family in Sebring, FL Gene is survived by
his son; Gene C. Harry and wife Deanna, two grandchil-
dren and one great grandchild. Gene is also survived by
his sister: Mary Andrews of Jefferson, WI, Brother; Casey
Harry of Galesburg, MI, Sister; Rosie Portoin of
Marysville, MI, Sister; Arlene Roscoe of Taylor, MI, Sister;
Pauline Sinsabough of Lapeer, MI. Gene retired from a
trucking company in MI after 25 years of service. After
retiring, Gene and his beloved wife of 54 years; Donna,
spent many winters in Florida before becoming full time
residents of Sebring in 1999. Gene's courage during his
illness demonstrated his strength, honor and faith. All
family and friends found him Loving, Virtuous,
Honorable and Genuinely a Nice Guy.
The family will hold a memorial service to celebrate
Gene's life at his home 2764 Duffer Rd., Sebring, March
3, 2007 at 6P.M. Immediately following the service; all
friends are invited to saoy for a time of fellowship.
Spring graveside services to be held at White
Chapel Memorial Cemetery, Southfield, MI, calendar date
to be announced.
Donations are encouraged in the name of Gene E.
Harry to: Good Shepherd Hospice and the American
Cancer Society.


Heartland Triathlon, High
argued.
High pointed out that Ridge
Trails' board acknowledges that
it doesn't have the resource to
conduct the triathlon.
Andrews said last year's
event was put in the hands of
experienced amateur triathletes
such as High, who ran with it.
The 15 major sponsors were
brought on board via Andrews'
connections in the community
and through the chamber,
Andrews said.
Andrews said Ridge Trails'
membership has dwindled 'to
about five people from a previ-
ous high of 15.
Newly-installed Ridge Trails
vice president Derek Carlton
said that the organization is fal-
tering and is looking for young
blood to fill its ranks.
O'Brien noted that Ridge
Trails spent about $10,000 to
pay for Sommers Sports to run
the race via a grant it received
from, the Highlands. County
Tourist Development Council
and its own "meager" funds.
"I felt Ridge Trails should
give up 75 percent of the pro-
ceeds," O'Brien said: "And,
allow other non-profits to
receive portions of the pro-
ceeds."
He said the Sebring chamber
wanted only 15 percent to go to
his organization.
They compromised Thursday
at 20 percent for the next five
years, which Andrews will
present to his board March 6.
The Sebring chamber owns
the fictitious name "Heartland
Triathlon" as of Feb. 12.
Drnun, William E of Sebring, Florida passed
away on February 22, 2007. He was born on
August 29, 1934, in Oswego, New York. Bill

Christian School student Lacey Haake's, 9, science project, 'The life cycle of a cabbage but-

verbal explanation and written reports.

Masters Academy student Joe Pecorarol L

questions asked by judge Rick Lavoy, of

Pecoraro's project was titled 'What ,
bridge design will support the most E
weight?' Mike McMillian (below left),
of Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, listens to Lakeland
Christian School student Harmon Gill
explain his project 'Air propulsion
motor boat and car.'


Special to the News-Sun
Under certain circum-
stances, special earnings for
service in the military from
1940-2001 can be credited to
the record for Social Security
purposes. These extra earn-
ings may help veterans quali-
fy for Social Security or
increase the amount of their
Social Security benefit. The
special extra earnings are
granted for periods of active
duty or active duty for train-
ing. Special extra earnings are
not granted for inactive duty
training.
Social Security cannot add
these extra earnings to the
veteran's record until he/she
has filed for Social Security
benefits.
The information that fol-
lows only applies to active
duty military services earn-
ings from 1940-2001. Here's
how the special extra earnings
are credited:
N Service in 1978-2001: If
enlisted after Sept. 7, 1980,
and didn't complete at least
24 months of active duty or
the full tour of duty, the veter-
an may not be able to receive
the additional earnings.
Check with Social Security
for details. For every $300 in
active duty basic pay, the vet-
eran is credited with an addi-
tional $100 in earnings up'to a


maximum of $1,200 a year.
Service in 1957-1977:
The veteran is credited with
$300 in additional earnings
for each calendar quarter in
which he/she received active
duty basic pay.
Service in 1940 through
1956: If in the military dur-
ing this period, including
attendance at a service acade-
my, the veteran did not pay
Social Security taxes.
However, the veteran's Social
Security record may be cred-
ited with $160 per month in
earnings for military service
from Sept. 16, 1940, through
Dec. 31, 1956, under the fol-
lowing circumstances: The
veteran was honorably dis-
charged after 90 or more days
of services; or he/she was
released because of a disabili-
ty or injury received in the


line of duty; or the veteran is
still on active duty; or a veter-
an's survivor is applying for
survivor's benefits and the
veteran died while on active
duty.
Veterans cannot receive the
credit for these special extra
earnings if he or she is
already receiving a federal
benefit based on those same
years of service. There is one
exception: If the veteran was
on active duty after 1956,
he/she can still get the special
earnings for 1951 through
1956, even if they are receiv-
ing a military retirement
based on service during that
period.
For information and to find
copies of Social Securing
publications, contact the local
Social Security office, or call
toll-free 1-800-772-1213.

PRECO's Operation Round Up funds

DeSoto County assistance awareness


Special to the News-Sun
WAUCHULA Peace
River Electric Cooperative's
Operation Round Up Board of
Directors recently presented
the DeSoto County Chapter of
United Way with a check for
$5,000. These funds will be
used to promote awareness of
the 2-1-1 program in the
DeSoto County community,
in English and Spanish.
United Way 2-1-1 of
Manasota's information and
referral services are gateways
for people to navigate the vast
array of available community
services.
The 2-1-1 service, new to
DeSoto County, is a 24-hour,
7 days-a-week, 365 days-a-
year centralized hub for infor-
mation and referrals. It quick-
ly links citizens with the com-
munity assistance agencies
they need, according to the
type of help they require.
Peace River Electric, an
electric distribution coopera-
ti e headquartered in


Wauchula, joined the nation-
ally known Operation Round
Up program in 2005. It col-
lects voluntary donations
from its members for commu-
nity charitable uses. Each reg-
istered consumer's electric
bill is "rounded up" to the
next whole dollar amount to
provide charitable funds in
the areas of food, shelter,
clothing, health needs, educa-
tion and the environment.
Operation Round Up funds
are available to anyone living
in one of the 10 counties that
PRECO serves: Highlands,
Brevard, DeSoto, Hardee,
Hillsborough, Indian River,
Manatee, Osceola, Polk, and
Sarasota. The Operation
Round Up Charitable
Foundation's independent
board of directors, made up of
nine PRECO members repre-
senting the 10 counties in
PRECO's service territory,
makes management decisions
and oversees the disburse-
meu! of monies .tir eipien(i

support of the Operation
Round Up program is one of
the many ways the coopera-

ment: Leadership focused on
reliability, members, and
community.
Peace River Electric
Cooperative, a Touchstone
Energy(r) distribution electric
cooperative headquartered in
Wauchula, provides electric
service and energy solutions
to nearly 35,1000 member/con-
sumers in 10 Florida counties
in central Florida: Highlands,
Brevard, DeSoto, Hardee,
Hillsborough, Indian River,
Manatee, Osceola, Polk and
Sarasota counties. Through
almost 4,000 miles of power
lines, the electric cooperative
has been in business since
1940 as a member-owned,
not-for-profit organization.

Curves collecting food


to help local
Curves in Highlands County

To celebrate the generosity
of the community, Curves is
waiving its normal service fee
for any new member who
brings in a bag of non-perish-
able groceries and joins
between March 1-10. Last year
more than 247,940 new mem-
bers joined Curves during the
food drive.
Others wishing to donate
may drop off non-perishable
food items at Curves Monday

food banks
ness hours through the month
of March.
"The Curves Food drive pro-
motion is always exciting," said
Kathie Lawens, the owner of all
of the Curves in Highlands
County. "We have a chance to
help so many people at a time
when the food banks are lowest,
while we assist more women in
reaching their fitness and
weight loss goals. It's a win-
win situation for everyone and
we're very proud to partici-
pate."
With more than 10,000 loca-
tions worldwide, Curves is the

fastest growing franchise com-
pany in history. More than 4

Many vets may be missing


out on special compensation


Special to the News-Sun
Many veterans may be
missing out on hundreds, pos-
sibly thousands of dollars
every month because they
have not applied for Combat-
Related Special Compensa-
tion. CRSC is designed to
restore military retirement
pay that has been offset by
Department of Veterans
Affairs compensation when
evidence exists to confirm the
associated disabilities are
combat related.
For example, if a veteran is
currently rated for a disability
of 10 percent with the
Veterans Administration, he
or she receives a check from
the VA each month, but his
retirement pay is reduced by
that same amount. If that dis-
ability is found to be combat-
related by the CRSC review
board, he or she would con-


tinue to receive the monthly
check from VA for compensa-
tion, along with the remainder
of the retired pay, and begin
to receive an additional
monthly check from CRSC
for the amount that was previ-
ously withheld from the
retirement check.
Many disabilities that
resulted from conditions dur-
ing peacetime may meet the
criteria for CRSC. If not sure
the circumstances surround-
ing the disability meet the
combat-related criteria, it
would be beneficial to apply
for CRSC and let the board
make a determination.
Prerequisites to consider
before submitting a CRSC
application, a veteran must:
., Be retired with 20 (or
more) years of active-duty
military service, or retired at
age 60 from the Guard or


Reserve.
Be receiving military
retired pay. Veterans who
waived military retirement
pay for Civil Service Credit
are not eligible to apply for
CRSC.
Have a compensable VA
disability rating of 10 percent
or higher.
Receive military retired
pay that has been reduced by
VA disability payments.
Joseph A. Dionne,
Highlands County Veterans
Service Office, reports that it
does take time to complete the
application process and make
the necessary copies for docu-
mentation. It could mean
qualifying for monthly tax-
free compensation forthe-irest
of the veteran's life. : ': --
Dionne can be contacted at
402-6623.

components pancakes,
eggs, meat and potatoes -
which all need to be fresh, but
not one of which takes the
same time to cook. Which
means there has to be a plan to
get everything to come out
together.
But even that's not the worst
of it. Most guests arrive as
couples or small groups, so it's
not just one meal that has to be
timed to perfection, but several
all at once, all of them differ-
ent.
The kitchen adds its own set
of challenges. One of only a
few of its type, it stretches
down the entire wall of the
restaurant. That means the
work stations are in full view
of everyone eating, which
means people are watching -
a nice little additional tension,
especially if you're clumsy and
a novice.
The plates make their way
up and down the line as each
component is added because
the wall kitchen is divided into
stations three in a row
where the cooking is done, one
at one end where sandwiches
are put together, and one at the
opposite end where the servers
garnish plates on their way to
the table. Cooks shift up and
down the line too, adapting to
the needs of the moment.

Tammy Wilcox is the general manager of the Sebring IHOP restaurant. Davjd White is the area coordi-
nator for FMS Management Systems Inc., IHOP's biggest franchiser. White oversees 18 restaurants in
Central Florida. Both can hold their own on the cook line, and work there regularly every weekend -
Wilcox in Sebring, White in whichever of his units need him.


After interviewing David
White, area coordinator for
FMS Management Systems
Inc., IHOPs largest franchiser,
he put me to work by placing
me in the middle of the line
surrounded by seasoned veter-
ans.
To my left was Elbert "Biki"
Jackson, easily scrambling
eggs or flipping them over
easy. He was using more than
one pan.


To my right was Philip
Mahoney, kept busy working a
grill, frying up all the bacon,
sausage, steaks, ham and hash
browns as they are ordered.
I was made the "wheel
man." That made me responsi-
ble for calling out the new
orders coming out of the com-
puterized meal ticket printer
and coordinating the plates as
they were put together.
Oh, and I also had to cook


up the pancakes and omelets.
Which really made me nerv-
ous because this is a busy, cor-
porately run restaurant and
there were hungry customers to
serve.
Being part of a large chain, I
had expected the IHOP staff to
be careful, maybe even defen-
sive, when talking with me.
But these people surprised me
by being very open.

surprised. I mean, when you
think about it, to let me play
behind the counter during a
morning rush?
That takes self-confidence I
think.
But the biggest surprise
came next.
White, a man with a good
haircut and corporate written
all over him, pulled out an
apron and tied it on over his
professionally starched, very
crisp dress shirt and slacks and
his carefully knotted, silk tie.
Without missing a beat or
breaking a sweat he went right
to work.
What a terrific surprise
when you find out the guy in
the suit can step out of his
office and work the front line.
It's kind of like suddenly dis-
covering someone you know
speaks a foreign language flu-
ently, or has a doctorate in
archeology.
White flipped pancakes with
style and flair as he measured
out portions, made a spinach
and mushroom omelet, kept
track of the plates and
explained things to me.
As for me, I was hopelessly
out of my league. For one
thing, once pancakes are
flipped they all look the same,
and for another, the orders
keep pouring in.
Only when I mentioned that
to White, he laughed with real
pleasure.
"This is a very small store,"
he said, looking at me with


pity. "I have one that seats 230.
This, this is easy," he said still
smiling and gesturing with his
spatula.
While we were working
White gave me a tip about
cooking pancakes, which I pass
on to you.
Yeast is their active ingredi-
ent. It is what makes them light
and fluffy. Keep the batter
chilled, he said, because the
cold batter hitting the hot grill
is what excites the yeast.
I watched closely, and sure
enough, the moment the batter
hits the grill, especially on the
flip, the cake puffs up, just like
a compressed sponge hitting
water only not quite so
extreme.
The pleasure of cooking
aside, this job is so difficult
and demanding, and the pace
so grueling, I was secretly
delighted when our session was
interrupted and I had to
respond to a breaking story.
It didn't take long to learn
I'd be better off juggling, on

It doesn't work here
It must have seemed like a scene out of a third-
world torture chamber, or a nightmare.
A man was strapped to a gurney, with needles
injecting caustic chemicals into the flesh of both
arms. Needles meant to be inserted into veins had
missed, a mistake that would raise foot-long blisters
on the condemned man's arms. Witnesses say he
twisted and appeared to be gasping for air a reac-
tion that one expert anesthesiologist says might have
indicated that the man felt as though he were suffo-
cating.
The sadistic scene played out for more than half an
hour, as appalled witnesses, including members of the
man's family, looked on.
When it was all over, the state of Florida had
accomplished its objective: Angel Nieves Diaz was
dead, executed for the murder of a bar manager near-
ly 27 years ago. But at what cost?
Many Floridians don't want to ask themselves that
question. So long as executions take place away from
their sight, they don't want to think about the
mechanics of state-sanctioned homicide. But when
executions go horribly wrong as they did in Diaz's
case it becomes much harder to look the other way.
Then-Gov. Jeb Bush appointed a commission to
look into the Diaz case. Gradually, a picture of gross
incompetence emerged. Poorly trained personnel
were responsible for inserting intravenous lines into
Diaz's arms, but they apparently poked needles
through the veins. The executioner supervising the
killing testified that by the time Diaz died 14
vials of various chemicals had been emptied into his
flesh, and that this execution wasn't the first he'd had
trouble with.
The executioner whose name was kept secret,
even from the commission also admitted he'd had
very little training and no medical experience.
Experts testified that the four-person execution team
missed several clear signs that things were going
wrong.
This barbaric episode is particularly shocking
becauselethal injection is usually billed as the "easy"
way to execute criminals: Noiseless, with no flailing
or burning flesh. But even when things go correctly,
some experts believe the relative calm of a lethal-
injection scene often hides a torturous, agonizing
death.
Florida, like most states, uses three chemicals: an
anesthetic to render the condemned unconscious, fol-
lowed by a paralytic and a poison that stops the heart.
But a study of 49 lethal injections published two
years ago in the leading British medical journal, The
Lancet, found that in 43 cases, the level of anesthetic
in the dead men's bloodstreams fell below the amount
required to cause unconsciousness. In some cases, the
study found, it's entirely possible that the condemned
man was awake and aware but unable to move -
while the caustic chemicals flooded his veins.
There's no compelling rationale behind this cruel
and unusual punishment. States that apply the death
penalty see no benefit in lower murder rates. The
death penalty is applied so randomly that one Florida
Supreme Court justice referred to it as "lightning
striking." And as scientific evidence of innocence
frees more people each year from Death Row, the
doubt grows about using such an irrevocable means
of punishment in such a deeply flawed system.
The commission's decision should be easy. Lethal
injection doesn't work for Florida, any more than the
other methods it tried in the past.

A soft fall off the diet


The diet cops have caught
up with me again. This means
I'm back to watching what I
eat and getting cranky.
I can forget to eat. Put me
in front of the computer and
get me caught up in a game or
project and I will go hours
and forget not only eating but
sleeping. This has caused cer-
tain members of my family
some concern, but I do
remember to do these things
eventually.
One of the many things that
bug me about dieting is that
when you diet you wind up
thinking about food a lot. You
think about the stuff you can't
eat but want to eat. You think
about the stuff you can eat but
would rather not. You ask
yourself if you are eating too
much or too little. You won-
der why God didn't make
broccoli taste like chocolate.
The diet I'm on is low carb.
That means no rice, potatoes,
white bread, or a bunch of
other tasty stuff. If it weren't
for the fact dark chocolate is
actually all right I might be

times I simply fail at being
good and eating only what I
should. I suspect most dieters
have the same problem.
Someone besides me is keep-
ing the snack food industry in
the black.
This brings me to some-
thing that happened this
week. Don wasn't going to be
home for dinner, which meant
I had to decide what I was
going to feed myself, James,
and my in-laws.
James does not often miss
opportunities like this. So he
made himself his most charm-
ing and suggested that instead
of fixing homemade ham-
burgers we go through a
drive-through and get dinner.
Call me easily persuaded.
Especially when it occurred to
me I could not only get a
cheeseburger but a baked
potato as a side. That sealed
the deal as far as I was con-


cerned.
So James and I
went out to a fast
food restaurant that I
will refer to in this


column as "Cindy's."
"Cindy's" is known for their
baked potatoes as a side to go
with their burgers. So I fig-
ured a quick trip out and I'd
have a nice, forbidden dinner.
Well, it wasn't that simple.
I pulled up at the first Cindy's
and began to list all the burg-
ers we wanted. Then I asked
about getting three .baked
potatoes. Z- ., 4 .
That is when they
explained that baked potatoes
would not be available for at
least a half hour. This
required a brief but intense
summit meeting between
myself and James. Since the
in-laws were also looking for-
ward to baked potatoes, we
decided to cancel our order
and brave U.S. 27 in order to
travel to another Cindy's.
The first thing I asked when
I got to the drive-through
speaker was, "do you have


wagon

baked potatoes?" Guess what
they said?
If you guessed that they
said it would be a half hour,
you would be wrong. At this
Cindy's, it was going to be an
hour.
Slightly puzzled and a little
frustrated, I asked the speaker
something like, "is there a
Cindy's potato shortage or
something?" James thought I
sounded somewhat annoyed,
and I would like to apologize
to the employee in question if
she thought I was mad.at her.
I hope she understandsiwas

of mind.
After a phone consultation,
we gave up our dream of
baked potatoes and got our
burgers somewhere else. So
yes, I still fell off the diet
wagon. But I didn't eat pota-
toes.

A question of lawyers, judges and ethics


The Florida
received the
about Miami


Bar Association
first complaint
attorney Louis


Robles in 1998, but he was not
disbarred until 2003. Robles pled not
guilty in 2006 to a 41-count federal
indictment charging that he diverted
$13.5 million in settlement funds from
thousands of clients. The money comes
out of asbestos litigation.
Florida has never disbarred more than
38 attorneys in a year.
Another Miami attorney, Warren
Tranzenfeld, was disciplined for intimi-
dating a witness and suspended for 10
days.
Former state Representative Steve
Effman pleaded no contest to having sex
with three female clients, divorce cus-
tomers, and was suspended for 91 days.
He now practices Florida law again.
What do yo have to do to get suspend-
ed for longer than three months?
Attorney John Skrandel was convicted
of aggravated assault after pulling a gun
on a Little League coach. He was sus-
pended for three years.
Article Five of the Florida
Constitution gives the Bar Association
the sole power to discipline attorneys. In
practice, this system gives a vast amount
of power to the Supreme Court. Eighty
local grievances committees can only
turn complaints over to the Florida
Supreme Court, which appoints a judge
to hear each case. Such a cumbersome
system seems to assume that violations
are few and that punishments will be
rare. Since the Florida Constitution is


nio constantly being amended, one
S wonders why no one has tried to
L. Gillis change this section.
In 2005, the Florida Supreme
Court issued a regulation limiting out-of-
state attorneys to three court appearances
per year. Americans for Legal Reform,
also known as HALT, Help Abolish
Legal Tyranny, opposes this restriction,
believing it will raise legal costs.
ALR/HALT also opposes a 2004 Florida
law raising the penalty for the unautho-
rized practice of law. The change will
only make it more difficult to provide
legal forms and other minimal forms of
legal assistance, ALR believes.
In the 1980s, legal secretary Rosemary
Furman was charged with unauthorized
practice of law for providing forms for
divorce filings. She was convicted and
eventually pardoned, but put out of busi-
ness.
Cost is certainly an issue. The
American Bar Association found that for
low-income Americans, legal services
programs cover no more than 15 to 25
percent of legal needs.
I have observed in court on many
occasions and my opinion of judges has
usually gone down. In Broward County
in the 1970s, I observed a civil case
under Judge .Hare. Reversing his own
ruling of the day before, he decided the
trial had been damaged and declared a
mistrial with both parties objecting. The
parties did not want all the money they
had spent bringing the case to trial to be
lost.
Someone living in Fort Lauderdale


sued Hollywood producers for making a
television movie without buying the
rights. This is a copyright case heard in
federal court. The judge paused to ask a
producer a series of questions about the
movie business, i.e. how long are deleted
scenes kept before the film is thrown
away? So we sat there with the court
clerk, court reporter and a couple of
bailiffs and several attorneys on the
clock while the judge chatted with a
Hollywood producer.
The bad behavior of judges and other
problems with the court system used to
be common knowledge. Try reading
"Crisis in The Courts" by Howard James.
Edward Bennett Williams, once the
highest paid trial lawyer in the United
States, has questioned the need for
judges to write lengthy opinions to
explain their decisions. After all, the
upshot of most appeals is yes or no, or a
dollar amount.
Even when judges are not wasting our
money they often have a low opinion of
anyone who is not a lawyer.
A burglary in a boatyard at night was
the subject of a case where I served as a
juror. The lawyers argued all day about
the legal definition of a building.
Unfortunately, the prosecutor never
asked any of the witnesses by what light
they saw these events at 10 p.m. I tried to
ask this question but the judge said that
questions from the jury could not be per-
mitted.

A 'sistahood' is a good thing


"Sistahood." What's that?
It's women coming together
for the common good in sup-
port of each other through the
storms of life and life's joys
and celebrations.
For the past three weeks
I've had the opportunity to
meet and socialize with some
awesome "sistas;" some I
knew, others I was meeting
for the first time. They all had
one thing in common; they
supported and loved each
other.
Over lunch with the PEO
"sistahood" I met some awe-
some women with interesting
background, united in love for
others. At our table sat the
mother-in-law of a senator.
This senator, who recently
took ill, is married to her only
daughter. On enquiring about
his health, she thanked us for
our expressed concern, and
told us that he was doing
much better.
Another fabulous "sista" in
the group had just returned
frqm a cruise. She shared sto-
ries of her trip, and comment-
ed on her pleasant encounter
with a group of students from


Panama, who were on a birth-
day trip. The birthday pack-
age included a trip to Disney
World. She said they were
well-behaved, and
she encouraged them to be
respectful of their parents.
There was also the "sista"
who is returning to New York,
while another was relocating
to the Carolinas.
An elegantly, unique
"sista" was the 82-year-old
author, who is working on her
second book.
Leader of the pack -

Another awesome group of
spiritual "sistas" are the
women of Vision Community
Church, who are
readily available to share the
pain or the joys of others,
whether it's the birth of a
baby, illness of a loved one,
marriages, or deaths.
Recently, the "sistas" have
celebrated three showers, a
baby shower, a wedding
shower, and a recommitment
shower.
One of the "sistas" will be
celebrating 13 years of mar-
riage. She, along with her
husband, will be recommit-
ting their marriage to God.
The invitation reads:
"Thirteen years of marriage
and we are excited." The "sis-
tas" will be hosting this mem-
orable occasion.
Next month, off to Tampa
they go to attend the Paula
White Women's Conference.
A word of advice: Each of
us needs a "sista" or two.
Someone who will not judge
nor condemn you. Some-
one who will love you uncon-
ditionally, in spite of the
many flaws.

.,A f I
PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

Breathless wonder
in worship
The butterfly flitted from
bloom to bloom while the
hummingbird's miraculous
wings suspended it in
midair two flying jewels
pulling sustenance from the
flowers.
These "breathless won-
ders" cause us to pause and
soak in some of their beau-
ty. Tiny though they are,
their gracefulness is win-
some and affects us pro-
foundly.
I once read the saying,
"Life is not measured by
the breaths we take, but by
the moments that take our
breath away."
But sometimes life hits
us forcefully and knocks
the wind out of us. That's
quite different than ecstatic
moments of breathlessness.
At those troubled times,
we cannot even think clear-
ly. Our emotions become
jumbled. Our hearts are
troubled. And the solutions
we seek seem far out of
reach.
We may feel that God is
distant and we can't con-
nect with him let alone
worship him. We're used to
praising and worshiping on
the mountain-top;
But, what do we do
when we're flat on our
faces in the valley?
Draw on those deep
reservoirs of remembrance
of who God is, his trust-
worthiness, past needs met
and the plan he has for
every individual.
Jeremiah 29:11, NIV,
says, "For I know the plans
I have for you," declares
the Lord, "plans to prosper
you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and
a future."
It's just that in this fallen
world we are affected by
sin that runs rampant. But
Jesus told us not to fear for
he has overcome the world.
He promised to never leave
us or forsake us. His word
is true and dependable.
But when we don't feel
that way, this saying from a
pastor friend is helpful.
"Never doubt in the dark
what God told you in the
light."
In other words, when all
was going well and you
learned God's ways that
was what he told you in the
light.
Now, in the valley the
dark we must grasp
those truths and not give
into the temptation of
doubt and despondency;
clinging instead to his
goodness, love, power, sov-
ereignty and salvation.
In so doing we worship
him in the deepest sense -
drawing sustenance like the
butterfly and hummingbird.
Should we be pious and
accepting without question-
ing? I don't believe so.
The Psalms clearly illus-
trate that God wants our
honesty bare and bold.
In our hopelessness and
turning to him, we express
our faith no matter how
small in his uncondi-
tional love for us.
Alas, we're worshiping
out of our need not our
bounty. The character of
God is changeless. He is
for us, even when our feel-
ings believe it.
And that is a breathless
wonder in worship. Selah.

said.
Raising standards has
always been a goal at Avon
Park Community Child
Development Center. Pat
Landress, curriculum coordina-
tor with the Highlands County
School Board, has been scruti-
nizing the Voluntary
Prekindergarten tests children
take when entering kinder-
garten. Out of the center's
recent graduates, more than
half are ready for school. The
emphasis is to now fine tune
and improve the system.
Shirley Furr, Landress'
mother, and the late Gwen
Sanders-Hill were the original
visionaries and founders of
Avon Park Community Child
Development Center.
"My mother taught at
Hopewell in the '60s. One day
she went on a home visit and
found two school kids home by
themselves using a sharp knife
to cut an orange. She returned
and declared something must
be done for our community.
She felt a quality preschool
was needed," Landress said.

AVON PARK Valerie
Jacobs, of Clewiston, and Judy
Nicewicz, of Avon Park, One
Stroke certified instructors,
traveled Feb. 6 to Orlando to
attend the first Level 2
Certification taught by Donna
Dewberry.
This was a very intense train-
ing and both have attained the
Level 2 status and will now be
designated as One Stroke certi-


fied instructors Level 2. There
were 48 attending, 46 from the
United States, one from Italy
and one from France.
This certification evaluated
their learning and painting
skills, as well as, design ele-
ments, technique, self cri-
tiquing, business skills and sug-
gestions for teaching. Dewberry
has created many new fabrics
and teaching guides that will be


available only through Level 2
instructors. This will facilitate
more advanced techniques for
students. Dewberry shared
many new products that will be
forthcoming in the future and
plans for Super Education that
will be in June at the Rosen
Plaza in Orlando.
For further information about
One Stroke painting, call
Nicewicz at 273-1339.

SEBRING Lorraine
Lynch Geiger donates her
newest book, "A Wild and
Woolly Night" to the Sebring
Children's Library.
Just off the press, the hard-
back book is in vivid color.
Children may meet Geiger at
her book signing in the Library
in March. "Wild and Woolly
Night" is Geiger's first book
published since her popular
"Trouble at the Blueberry
Patch" a few years ago.
This fast moving story
revealing a mysterious parade
of animals may be read at a gal-
loping pace for older children
and promotes parent/child
bonding as it creates suspense
on every page. It offers oppor-
tunities for the child to ask
questions about animal habits
and habitats.
Read at a slower pace in the
comfort of loving arms or
tucked into blankets its repeti-
tion can easily induce drowsi-
ness.
The book is a well-written
fantasy, in verse and humor,
about a small boy trying to fall
asleep. He is kept awake by an
assortment of cuddly critters
moving about on his stash of

Poisonous plants found throughout Florida


* This is part one of a series on
toxic plants to avoid.

The point is there is no rule
to aid in identifying poisonous
plants. You must make an effort
to learn as much as possible.
Do not eat any plant unless you
can positively identify it first.
Keep a log of all plants eaten.
In this series I will discuss
how plants poison, a list of
some of the poison plants you
might be familiar with here in
Florida, a description, toxicity,
the signs and symptoms to
watch for.
How plants can be poison
someone:
Plants basically poison a
person by contact, ingestion or
by absorption or inhalation.
Ingestion, when a person
eats a part of a poisonous plant.
Contact, when a person
makes contact with a poisonous


plant that causes any type of
skin irritation or dermatitis.
Absorption or inhalation,
when a person either absorbs
the poison through the skin or
inhales it into the respiratory
system.
Many edible plants have
deadly relatives and look-
alikes. Positive identification of
edible plants will eliminate the
danger of accidental poisoning.
There is no room for experi-
mentation where plants are con-
cerned.
Plants poisoning ranges from
minor irritation to death. A
common question asked is,
"How poisonous is this plant?"
It is difficult to say how poison-
ous plants are because:
Some plants require con-
tact with a large amount of the
plant before noticing any
adverse reaction while others
will cause death with only a


small amount.
Every plant will
vary in the amount if
toxins it contains due
to different growing
conditions and slight
variations in sub-
species.
Every person has
a different level of
resistance to toxic sub-
stances.
Some persons
may be more sensitive
to a particular plant.
Some common mis-
conceptions about poi-
sonous plants are:


GROWING

SEASON

Anna Coley


Watch the animals and eat
what they eat. Most of the time
this statement is true, but some
animals can eat plants that are
poisonous to humans.
Boil the plant in water and
any poison will be removed.
Boiling removes many poisons,


but not all.
Plants with a red
color are poisonous.
Some plants that are
red are poisonous, but
not all.
To help prevent
plant poisonings, fol-
low these safety tips:
Know the names
of all the plants in your
landscape. If you need
help identifying a
plant, take a piece to a
local nursery or your


county


extension


agent.
Label all of your plants
with their names so you can
identify a plant that has been
eaten.
Keep plant, seeds, and
bulbs out of the reach and sight
of children and pets.
Do not eat wild plants or
mushrooms.


Keep weed and insect
killers in a locked cabinet, out
of reach of children and pets.
Never put them in bottles used
for drinking.
Keep children and pets
away from lawns newly
sprayed with garden chemicals.
Teach your children to


never put any part of a plant
into their mouths.


Anna R. Coley is a Master
gardener affiliated with the
University Of Florida's Institute
of Food and Agricultural
Sciences.

Doc Severinsen'


The News-Sun www.newssun.com


farewell


tour makes a stop at SFCC


AVON PARK The South
Florida Community College
Artist Series is proud to present
Doc Severipsen and His Big
and at South Florida
Community College at 7:30
p.m. Monday, March 5, in the
SFCC Auditorium, Highlands
campus.
The flamboyant, Grampu
award-winning music director
of "The Tonight Show" will
perform with-15of the show's
best musicians on his farewell
tour. Their repertoire includes
pop, jazz, ballads, and big band
classics. Severinsen, an amaz-
ing trumpet player, has made
more than 30 albums from
big band, to jazz, to classical.
He began working for NBC in
1962 as first trumpet for the
highly respected "Tonight
Show" with Johnny Carson.
Five years later, he took over as
music director for "The Tonight
Show" and stayed with the
show until Johnny Carson
retired from late night televi-
sion in 1992.
Within a week of the final
telecast of "The Tonight Show"
with Johnny Carson, Doc
Severinsen and His Big Band
were on the road. Severinsen's
group is comprised of the best
musicians from "The Tonight
Show:" Ed Shaughnessy on
drums, Ernie Watts on tenor
saxophone and Snooky Young
on trumpet. Their repertoire
includes Ellington and Basie
standards, pop, jazz, ballads,
big band classics, and of course,
"The Tonight Show" theme.
Audiences are finally able to
hear the depth of talent belong-

ing to a band that rarely fin-
ished a tune on-the-air.
Severinsen can blow the roof
off with a trumpet solo, but he
is not the only accomplished
soloist. Many band members
get their well-deserved turns in
the spotlight as well.
Severinsen's accomplish-
ments began in his hometown
of Arlington, Ore., population:
600. Carl H. Severinsen was
born in 1927 and was nick-
named "Little Doc" after his
father, Dr. Carl Severinsen, a
dentist. Little Doc had original-
ly wanted to play the trombone.
But the senior Severinsen, a
gifted amateur violinist, urged
him to study the violin. The
younger Severinsen insisted on
the trombone but had to settle
for the only horn available in
Arlington's small music store


- a trumpet. A week later,
with the help of his lather and a
manual of instructions, the 7-
year-old was so good that he
was invited to join the high
school band. While still in high
school, he was hired to go on
the road with the famous Ted
Fio Rito Orchestra.
However, his stay with the
group was cut short by the
draft. He served with the U.S.
Army during World War II, and
following his discharge, landed
a spot with the Charlie Barnett
Band. When this band broke up,
Severinsen toured with the
Tommy Dorsey and the Benny
Goodman bands in the late
1940s. After his days with
Barnett and Dorsey, Severinsen
arrived in New York City in
1949 to start his career with
NBC and "The Tonight Show"
where he became known for his
trumpet playing, wit and fash-
ion.
Doc Severinsen and His Big
Band are co-sponsored by
Florida Hospital Heartland
Division and Highlands
Independent Bank.
Tickets range from $33 to
$38 and may be purchased
online 24 hours a day, seven
days a week, at www.southflori-

VISION
Continued from 1B
flourished. It has been a
multi-cultural, mult-economic
involvement from a wide vari-
ety of people in the community
from the start.
"Teachers, parents, etc.
made this center a community
jewel and its 25-year success is
reason for celebration,"
Landress said.


/"When board director
Barbara Heilig died last year,
she bequeathed money to help
with our expansion. We hope
others will want to get
involved with matching funds
or donating seed money. We
want people to know the dream
is still alive, and we want that
vision to continue. We plan to
expand our program to serve
eight infants. Surveys show
they most need quality pro-
grams. We want to partner with


parents and improve skills. All
of this will make our commu-
,nity better," Lumpkin said.
She feels Avon Park
Community Child
Development Center is a place
where children can express
themselves and have no fear of
being creative. "The center
belongs to them. Here they
have the freedom to be them-
selves in a positive atmos-
phere," Lumpkin said.

II
G 4:4, "But when the

ful the time was come,
G north his Son, made
of. Ltn, made under the
l lawi". The Bible is filled with
examples of people waiting
Jfifr God's promises. Abraham
and Sarah waited for God to ,
give then their promised son. The children of.
Israel waited in captivitr for their deliverer to
appear David waited on God while he was
being pursued by Saul's men. Israel waitedfo
her Messiah, and the disciples waited for the
coming of the Holy 'Spirit. I'e are waiting
now for our blessed hope, the coming of our
Lord Jesus Christ for His church. God always
came through for those who waited on Him.
The promised Son was born. The deliverer
appeared. Enemies were defeated; the
Messiah was sent: and. the Holy Spirit came.
One day we -who are waiting e.\pectantly will
be caught up in, the cloudSlro be with our Lord
forever. God i~s never' ite, and He never
forgets His promise. Daivid said. 'Wait on the
Lord; be of good courage. and he shall
strengthen thine heart: Wail, I 'say, on the
Lord". Psalm 2-.14.. Doni'i giie up on your
promise. Keep believing God and it shall come
to pass. Be Blessed!' -Patricia Valentine

SFCC introduces India Fine Arts Series Saturday


AVON PARK South
Florida Community College is
launching yet another cultural
series this year, making it the
seventh series SFCC Cultural
Programs presents to the com-
munity.
The inaugural performance
of the India Fine Arts Series
will be Lakshmi Shankar with
Kedar Naphade and Pandit
Samir Chatterjee at 6 p.m.
Saturday in the SFCC
University Center Auditorium,
Highlands campus. After a suc-
cessful performance in 2005 by
an Indian tabla player named
Sandip Burman, and through
the generous support of a local


couple, SFCC is proud to pro-
vide an opportunity for local
residents to enjoy classical
Indian music.
Lakshmi Shankar, sister-in-
law to Pandit Ravi Shankar, is
one of the foremost and well-
known vocalists of India. She
has numerous recordings to her
credit and has lent her voice to
many films, including the
Academy Award winning
Gandhi directed by Sir Richard
Attenborough. The magic of her
rich, melodious voice and the
emotion in her singing are some
of the qualities that have made
her one of the foremost and
popular vocalists for the last 50


years. Although Shankar has
composed and performed for
film, classical music is her pri-
mary direction, having recorded
numerous albums and finding
time to teach music to students.
Shankar will be accompanied
by Kedar Naphade. Naphade
has performed harmonium
solos and accompanied vocal-
ists at numerous concerts in
India, Europe, and the United
States, including Lincoln
Center in New York, and the
Smithsonian Institute in
Washington D.C. He has also
been featured on National
Public Radio.
Pandit Samir Chatterjee will


also accompany Shankar.
Chatterjee is a virtuoso tabla
player from India. He travels
widely across the world per-
forming in numerous festivals
as a soloist and with other out-
standing musicians from both
Indian and Western traditions.
His compositions are widely
acclaimed as well as his writ-
ings. Chatterjee has taught for
the last 25 years, and many of
his students are established per-
formers. He is the founder of an
organization dedicated to pro-
moting and preserving Indian
music and culture.
The performance is being
sponsored by Highlands


Regional Medical Center, Drs.
Ashok and Raji Sonni,
Highlands Today, and the
News-Sun.
Ticket prices range from $15
to $50 and may be purchased
online 24 hours a day, seven
days a week, at www.southflori-
da.edu by clicking on
"Performances." Tickets may
also be purchased by calling the

Sebring nd-Avon Park-was no different for
the host Red Devils as they dropped one to
the Blue Streaks, 9-7.
And according to Avon Park head coach
Mike Cobb, the game was dropped because
too many balls were dropped.
"It was just a one-inning meltdown," he
said. "Girls who hadn't made two errors all
season were making two errors in one
inning."
Avon Park (4-2) had jumped out to an
early 4-0 lead in the first inning on RBI sin-
Sebring gles from Logan Palmer and
Ashley Howze and a two-RBI
base knock from Kim White.
SThat lead held until the
Avon Park third, when the meltdown
occurred.
With the bases loaded arid
two out, Hannah Shoop laced
a single which brought home
two runs.
Errors brought home the next three runs
before Kristin Salinder blasted a triple to the
left-center-field fence to bring in another.
Salinder then scored on an error to bring
the tally to seven for the inning and a three-
run lead.
The score went to 8-4 the next inning
when Chelsea Vickers knocked home Niki
Helms, but Avon Park wasn't done.
With the bases .loaded and two out in the
fifth, Shantavia Conner singled home
Palmer, who had walked, and Missy Lander,
who had doubled, to trim the lead to 8-6.
Helms got a run back for the Blue Streaks
(8-1) when she tripled off the fence in right-

Panthers can't keep u with Lakers

South Florida surrenders 18 hits to fall one game under .500


By SCOTT DRESSEL
scott.dressel@newssun.com
AVON PARK It didn't take long Friday
afternoon to realize the Panthers were going
to have to swing the bats if they wanted to
keep up with visiting Lake-Sumter.
Eight hits in the first two innings staked the
Lakers to a 5-0 lead and sent South Florida
Community College to its bullpen early. The
Panthers never could find a way to dig them-
selves out of the hole, giving up 18 hits in an
11-5 loss that dropped them to 10-11.
SFCC head coach Rick Hitt said the Lakers
just outplayed his team Friday.
"We've pitched pretty well and swung the


bats well and played pretty good team base-
ball (in winning four of the previous six
games)," Hitt said. "Tonight
Lake-Sumter ... their hitters were jumping
on everything we threw."
The Lakers, who rallied
S .from 7-1 down to beat SFCC
SFCC 15-9 earlier this season, did-
n't need to come back this
time around. Three straight
one-out singles and a two-out
double by Cody Storey made
it 2-0 in the first, and three more singles, a
double and a run-scoring error in the top of
the second pushed the lead to 5-0 and chased


SFCC starter Sean Bryant.
It was 6-0 before the Panthers managed to
break the string of goose eggs on their side of
the scoreboard, getting a Dale Slimick RBI
triple and a sacrifice fly from Barry Padgett to
pull to within four runs.
The Lakers responded with a five-run out-
burst in the top of the fifth that was started
with three hits, a balk and two walks and was
capped by a three-run double from Storey.
Brad Gooch's triple in the bottom of the
seventh made it 11-3 and Brien Coppola and
Gooch parlayed ninth-inning doubles into
runs in the last inning, but there was to be no
miracle rally for the home team.


Hoehne 5: From jinxes to Danica to Jeter


Good effort not enough for Devils


Perhaps I jumped the gun on the
Sports Illustrated cover jinx ruining
the Cubs' season.
After all, the caption and ensuing
piece on the team basically said that
while the team spent boatloads of
money to improve last years' dreadful
team, making the postseason is not
predicted.
So maybe the jinx of them being on
the cover was negated by what was
being written about their chances.
And see, this is the mindset one gets
from growing up with that team, rec-
ognizing anything that could doom
their chances, and then searching for
caveats that tell you hope is still alive.
Until the next foreboding omen
comes along.
Speaking of doom and gloom, you
have to feel for the Miami Heat, who
looked to be getting their season back
on track for the final two-month play-
off push.


AND ANOTHER
THING ...
Dan Hoehne


Shaq was back and looking good
(more Green Giant than Pillsbury
Doughboy), Pat Riley had returned to
the helm (coincidentally), and Dwayne
Wade was in top form (leading Miami
to a sub-.500 record in the woeful
Eastern Conference) until his shoul-
der was pulled from its socket and the


plug essentially pulled on any Heat
hopes.
Just like my hopes have been dashed
for meeting/interviewing/seeing
Danica Patrick at the 12 Hours of
Sebring.
No official reason was given why
she won't be racing here in March
- speculation has ranged from issues
with the seat, given size difference
between her and whoever would be her
racemates, to contractual issues, to
even Indy Racing Series issues.
There just won't be any photos of
her and I, no articles of me interview-
ing her in our issues anytime soon.
Which reminds me of a column I
wrote on the Patrick phenomena and
the heat she took for being too much
hype for not having won anything.
It was the media that hyped her up
to begin with, and despite an earned
rookie of the year honor, it was the

couldn't come up with enough offense in a 2-1 loss to

LESSON


15 YEARS AGO
Feb. 27, 1992: The Lake Placid boys basketball team was nearly the Cinderella of the district tour-
nament, falling just short of top-seeded DeSoto, 81-76. Darell Nicklow scored a career high 45 points
for the Bulldogs, but behind 28 points from Derwin Callahan, the Dragons were in the game until free
throws in the waning seconds sealed the outcome.
30 YEARS AGO
Feb. 26, 1977: Despite having lost to Lake Placid three times during the regular season, the Avon
Park boys basketball team won when they needed it most, posting an 80-78 double overtime victory over
the Green Dragons in the District 13-2A tournament. Lake Placid center Bill Ross led all scorers with 28
points, while Fred Williams paced the Red Devils with 16.

Unwanted foreigner here to stay


Lloyd Jones
With the weather getting
more favorable and water
temperatures rising to the
mid 60s, those fishermen
seeking a trophy bass to hang
over the mantle will undoubt-
edly be spending more time
on the lakes. Hopefully, the
cold fronts will stay north of
our area or diminish before
arriving here.
There were some good
catches reported last week
despite a few cold mornings.
Bass weighing up to and
including 11 pounds plus
were caught using shiners
while fishing Lake Istokpoga.
The bass were ignoring artifi-
cial baits while panfish
anglers were catching heavy
stringers of shellcrackers
using red worms.
These local anglers,
whether intent on catching
bass or shellcrackers, would
no doubt have been astound-
ed to reel in a critter such as
has been found in some of
southeastern Florida's canals.


Back in 2000, snakeheads
were discovered in a Florida
canal. A snakehead is a fresh-
water fish native to tropical
areas of Asia and Africa.
There are two species found
in the U.S. the northern
snakehead found in Maryland
and the bullseye snakehead in
southeast Florida's urban
canals.
Irresponsible pet owners
have dumped unwanted exot-
ic pets into our waterways
and other wildlife areas,
causing problems for native
fish and wildlife. When tiring
of the novelty of owning
such an animal, they simply
dump it into the local envi-
ronment, thus putting their
responsibility on some one
else's shoulders.
The bullseye snakehead
has a long body, long dorsal
and anal fins without spines
and jaws full of teeth. The
long anal fin runs to the tail
with a black spot rimmed
with orange near the base of
the tail fin.
Scientist Paul Shafland,
who has spent more than 30
years studying exotics at the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's
Non-Native Fish Laboratory,
says that preventing exotic
species from gaining a
foothold is the only sensible
approach to maintaining
environmental equilibrium.
"It's our first and most

important line of defense," he
said.
Since the first snakehead
was documented in 2000,
Florida scientists have
observed thousands of
bullseyes, the largest of
which weighed over 9 pounds
and measured a little over 33
inches long.
"They're here to stay,
unless they somehow disap-
pear on their own, something
no one is. expecting them to
do," Shafland said.
It is illegal, but unwanted
non-native pets continue to
be released into our state's
waters. Thirty two exotic fish
species have been found
breeding and flourishing in
our state's fresh waters. The
FWC has been able to elimi-
nate some of the newer exot-
ic species, but since the
snakeheads have spread to


open waters and intercon-
necting canals and water-
ways, their elimination is not
plausible.
The FWC continues to
look for management
approaches to minimize the
risks that exotic fishes pres-
ent, while at the same time
developing methods to utilize
these unwelcome resources.
Oscars and Mayan cich-
lids, exotic fishes native to
Central and South America,

anglers fishing in the
Everglades, and wild tilapia

Getting the public involved
in using them for recreational

Continued from 1D
center, and then took home on
an overthrow to third.
The Devils struck for one
more run in the sixth when
Sarah Flores scored on a
Heather Barnes single, but
that would be all they could
muster as Sebring hurler
Kendall Carson got through
the final 1 1/3 innings with no
further damage.
"It's always a good game
when these two play," interim
head coach Larry Johnson
said. "(Avon Park pitcher)


HOEHNE
Continued from 1D
media that was coming down
on her for not earning the
hype that they gave her.
Yes, I'm a member of the
media, but much of what
happens because of the
media drives me nuts.
Like now, with the
Yankees, the media is making
a big deal about the relation-
ship between Alex Rodriguez
and Derek Jeter. Rodriguez
says they're not as close as
they used to be, Jeter says
it's a non-issue on the field


Ashton (Shirey) pitched a real
good ball game, but we had
good hitting up and down the
lineup and played solid
defense. But when we play
them at our place, it's going
to be another tight game."
And while obviously not
pleased with the loss, Cobb
both understood and saw the
benefit.
"It's just a big pressure
game for them, Sebring and
Avon Park," he said. "Maybe
it just got to them, but it's a
wake-up call. Every team
needs to get a kick like this at
some point."


- seems pretty cut and dry
and a non-story to me.
But of course the media
will persist, as they've kept
asking members of the team
whether it will be an issue
for the team.
I'm just waiting for one of
them to come back and say,
"If you'd just shut up about
it, it won't be."
Just like the SI cover jinx
wouldn't be an issue for the
Cubs if I would just shut up
about it.

Senior Softball


Barn-burners dominate past


week's action in Sebring league


Special to the News-Sun
The Sebring Senior
Softball League had a little
upsetting of the apple cart
Thursday in a game in Lake
Placid between Silent
Salesman and Miller's
Central Air.
The Salesman jumped at an
early lead scoring five runs in
the first inning, but by the
sixth inning were trailing by
six runs. They then tallied
seven runs to take a one run
lead and the defense then took
over and shut the door and
blanked the Miller's over the
final three innings, with the
Salesman taking a hard-
fought, 15-14 victory for their
fourth straight win.
Salesman hitters with three
hits each were Harley Smith,
Dick Harris and Jerry
Johnston, who also doubled.
Adding their help were
Marvin Knutilla with a triple
and Ken Filppula a double.
Glenn Wearsh did his part
for Miller's with three hits,
while six teammates con-
tributed two hits apiece.
Millers still remains at the top
of the league standings.
At DeSoto City, Royal
Palms effortlessly waltzed
their hot bats all over the
place in a 26-8 win over the
Rebels. Jim Quartier knocked
a homer and had a double,
while Bob Fox also homered
and tallied four. RBIs. Tom
Gaiownik had two doubles


with four RBIs, adding to
Ross Andersons' triple, dou-
ble and four RBIs. Hitting
doubles were Jim Longman
and Doran Quigg.
The Rebels did little dam-
age on offense, with Stan Turl
going 3-for-4 including a
home run, a double and had
three RBIs. Glen Moor
slammed a home run and Jim
Streitzel went 4-for-4. Getting
three hits each were Jerry
Mathis, Elwood Black and
Rollie Carlson, but there just
was no holding back the
aggressive Royal Palms.
At Lincoln Heights, Luby's
overpowered Discount
Aluminum in a fairly close
match of 19-15. Luby's top
hitter of the day was Bob
Stevens with two home runs
and two triples. Serge was 5-
for-5 including a homer, Russ
Moody a home run and Larry
Ambuel was 4-for-4.
Discount Aluminum battled
back with five hits off Bob
Iott's bat, John Schmidt with
four hits and three teammates
with three hits each. Both
Teams are playing shorthand-
ed due to injuries, but are
keeping their chins up.
Tuesday's action turned out
to be real barn burners with
all three games being decided
by one run and two going for
an extra inning.
At DeSoto City, the Silent
Salesman overtook Royal
Palms with two runs in the


sixth inning. The Palms
fought back with a run in the
eighth to tie, only to lose in
the ninth with a final score of
8-7.
Collecting three hits for the
Salesman were Don
Cunningham, including a
three-run double, and Carol
Brosius.
Royal Palms' Brian Pluta
and Bob Weiss each belted
out a triple and Charlie Quinn
doubled.
At Lincoln Heights, the
Rebels rallied for a 10-9 win
over Discount Aluminum.
High hitter of the day was
Stan Turl, who was 4-for-4.
Elwood Black and Moose
Morrissette were each 3-for-
4.
John Schmidt hit two dou-
bles and Jim Chevatoris was
3-for-4 for Discount
Aluminum.
Miller's Central Air and
Luby's in Lake Placid was
another heart-throbber, with a
final score of 19-18 with
Miller's on top.
Jim Maynard had three hits
including a homer for Luby's.
Marvin Strope was credited
with three hits and Don Day
banged out a triple.
Bob Fee produced four hits
for Miller's, including a
homer. Members of the three
hitters club were Tom Walsh,
Rod Palmer, Don Teague and
Victor Rodriquez.
