Audit could



have cost



$16,000
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun. corn
SEBRING The audit of the auditors'
report is in the mail.
Steve Hooper, a Hillsborough County Clerk
of the Courts internal auditor, mailed the final
report Friday.
"Assuming that everything we discussed is
reflected, Mr. (L.E. "Luke") Brooker is
already aware of what is in this report," said
Bob Jamison, senior director of business serv-
ices for the Highlands Clerk of Courts.
Hooper and an assistant came to Sebring
Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 to review a self-evaluation
performed by internal auditors Mary Wilson
and Heather Woods.
His final report was expected Feb. 2, but
Hooper had to leave early for what was
described as personal reasons.
On Feb. 23, Hooper mailed a draft of his
report to Jamison, who received it Wednesday.
A teleconference took place Thursday, and
Jamison faxed the draft report back with
Wilson's, Woods' and his signatures.
Because Wilson and Woods are qualified,
Jamison said it was the best use of taxpayers'
money to self-evaluate and have an independ-
ent auditor critique and review that evaluation.
He said a specific methodology is laid out
by the Institute of Internal Auditors, requiring
a review of the department's most recent audit
and its departmental practices, policies, quali-
fications and ethics.
"We compile all that, then the independent
validator verifies that ... the critique we made
of ourselves has all the documents and plans
and complies with the standard," Jamison said
Friday.
In light of his department's audit of the
Highlands County Library System that has
been shrouded in controversy by opponents
and proponents, Jamison addressed potential
criticism.
"We are not required to have our internal
audit department audited," he said. "We
believe enough in the value and benefits of
auditing, like we hope the auditees feel about
it, that we audit ourselves. Whatever is good
for them is good for us."

Members of the Placid Lakes Volunteer Fire Department battle a large brush fire Friday afternoon in Lake Placid. Some Placid Lakes
residents were forced to evacuate their homes due to their close proximity to the fire.

Conditions good for brush fires, not so good for firefighters


By KEVINJ.SHUJTT
kevin.shutt@ newssun.corn
LAKE PLACID Lake Placid residents
fared better than those in Frostproof, which
lost a dozen homes to brush fires Friday.
Division of Forestry and Highlands
County volunteer fire departments worked
together to battle and contain more than 100
acres of fire.
"The winds were up to 25 miles," Melissa
Yunas, Forestry spokeswoman, said.
Coupled with drying vegetation from the
ongoing drought, the conditions are ripe for
brush fires, Yunas said, warning that the cold
front won't help matters unless it brings
rain. A lot of it.
A six-acre fire on the northwest side of
Lake Placid in Placid Lakes ignited when a
tree fell into power lines, Yunas said.


Firefighters were able to contain 95 per-
cent of the fire.
A larger fire loomed simultaneously off of
County Road 621 near Lake Istokpoga,
where 101 acres caught fire from an
unknown source.
Yunas said 20-25 homes were evacuated
due to the fire.
At least one home was threatened in the
county, with tight quarters and downed brush
thwarting fire-fighting efforts. But, no homes
were lost.
"It came very close," Yunas said. "The
only reason we saved any homes was defen-
sible space."
She explained that defensible space is
when firefighters have enough room around
structures to bring in equipment.
Gusty winds hampered efforts to fight a


brush fire in southern Polk-County,-where-as
many as 200 homes were evacuated Friday.
The blaze in a mostly rural area east of
Frostproof consumed about 1,000 acres and
destroyed at least a dozen structures -
barns, sheds and an undetermined number of
homes, county spokeswoman Heather
Duckworth said.
It wasn't clear how many homes were
evacuated, but Duckworth said it was
between 100 and 200. She didn't know how
many residents were involved. They were
being taken to a Lake Wales church.
Helicopters dumped water on the blaze as
firefighters from a number of local, state and
federal agencies worked to contain it.
Saturday afternoon, there were reports of
rekindling around Lake Placid but Yunas was
unable to confirm where and to what extent.

County commissioners
will be asked to help
fund this handicap-
accessible playground
in Lake Placid.


Commissioners tasked with child's play


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING County commissioners
on Tuesday will consider committing
$45,000 for a handicap-accessible play-
ground in Lake Placid.
The Recreation and Parks Advisory
Committee recommends the board grant
the money, which The School Board of
Highlands County will match.
"If you look around, you'll see a lot
of playgrounds and they're all ADA
accessible," said John Varady, an
exceptional student education teacher at
Lake Placid Elementary School.


If approved and the money to meet its
$110,000 price tag is raised, the play-
ground would be built at the elementary
school.
With play and activity stations at
ground level, Varady said the county's
playgrounds meet the minimum
requirements of the American with
Disabilities Act, but they still have the
potential to leave some children
grounded.
"We didn't want that one kid in a
wheelchair who had to sit there at
ground level while his friends go to the
top," he said.


With the help of the Lake Placid
community, the county and the school
board, Varady is close to realizing a
playground for everybody.
Varady and other exceptional student
education teachers were seeking handi-
cap-accessible equipment. At the same
time, the school's parent-teacher organ-
ization was trying to fund a new play-
ground.
"Currently, there's a playground
there that was moved to make way for a
new wing to the school," Varady said.

Betty Ford-Smith, of The School Board of Highlands County curriculum department,
reads Dr. Seuss' 'Happy Birthday To You' on Friday afternoon to a group of students
in Rosemarie Joyner's class at Sun 'N Lake Elementary School in Sebring. The school
celebrated Seuss' birthday and the 50th anniversary of his book 'Cat In The Hat' with
a special storytime, cake and snacks. Some students also made and decorated hats in
tribute to Seuss. 'We really want to encourage kids to read,' Joyner said.




City audit report nears completion


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher tuffley @ newssun. com
AVON PARK State
statute requires local govern-
ments to have regularly
scheduled audits. It depends
on the size of the government
and its budget as to how often
audits have to occur. For
Avon Park, it is yearly.
The purpose, Julie Fowler,
certified public accountant
and partner with The NCT
Group, said, is to express an
opinion on a government's
financial statement, which is
a window into how a county
or city operates its business.
This kind of audit is not
forensic, or all inclusive. "We
don't look at 100 percent of
the city's invoices or checks,"
Fowler said. Instead, auditors
look at samples, patterns and
representative figures.
The. idea is to help track
assets and liabilities, as well
as accountingg habits, to see
where money is really being
spent. The idea is to help
ensure sound, professional
government, because, book-
keeping for local govern-


ments is complicated.
For example, a municipali-
ty typically has three main
revenue streams: Collected
taxes; fees for city services;
and government grants and
revenue sharing (funds
returned to the city from taxes
collected at the state or feder-
al level), all of which money
has to be tracked.
In addition, tangible prop-
erty and its depreciations, any
current or future obligations,
and expected, but uncollect-
ed, revenues have to be fac-.
tored into the equation.
Finally, much grant and
shared revenue funding
comes with conditions. It is
essential to separate out funds
that a city may spend on
whatever it needs, and fund-
ing that is restricted.
In other words, only by
oorttiog everything out can the *;
true financial picture emerge.
Regularly scheduled audits
also provide a historical con-
text, and can help in identify-
ing trends or developing
problems.
Fowler and Mike Carter,


NAACP ready for a new

year under new leadership


AVON PARK Effective
Monday, Marchl9, the
NAACP will begin meeting
at the Reeds Oasis
Conference Hall at 1125
Paulk St. in Avon Park. The
Reeds Oasis is one block off
U.S. 27 behind Reeds Motel
in Avon Park.
The meeting will take place
the first Monday of each
month at 7 p.m.
The NAACP would like to
extend its thanks to owners
Tami Lott and John Perry of
the Reeds Motel for making
the Reeds Oasis Conference
Hall available.
The newly elected presi-
dent, Brenda Gray, encour-
ages new members to join and
welcomes any and everyone


to join the NAACP. Gray said
new members are one of the
main objectives for the
upcoming year. Plans for a
membership drive is in the
near future.
Any questions, contact
Brenda Gray at 453-1933 or
Sabrina Cannie, 453-3320.


also a partner with The NCT
Group, the company prepar-
ing Avon Park's audit,
appeared before the city
council Monday evening, pre-
senting the first draft of
2006's audit. Because the
document is still being
reviewed, final conclusions
have yet to be drawn.
While he avoided specifics,
Carter did briefly review the
audit's major points for the
city council.
The good news is that the
city's situation is improving,
he said.
For example, an audit eval-
uates a financial statement in
a document called the man-
agement letter. In it, 18
benchmarks are addressed. In
2005, the city had unfavor-
able ratings on 11 of the 18
benichnmarks. this year only
seven.. .. ..:.
And while Carter recom-
mended better monitoring
within departments in gener-
al, he said that had improved
over last year as well.
Of the city's enterprise
funds solid waste manage-
ment, water and sewer, and
the airport solid waste is
doing well, Carter said, and
even showing a small profit.
Sewer and water, however,
for reasons having to do with
major capital investments and
an aggressive loan repayment
schedule, is showing signs of
the pressure, as is the airport,
where expenses outweigh rev-
enues.
A detailed examination of
the audit report will occur
with its final edition.

SEBRING The effects of
a county brainstorming exer-
cise are bubbling upward.
By formalizing long-term
goals, county commissioners
directed staff to deliver high-
value services, bolster com-
munications on all levels and
manage growth in a manner
that protects residents' quality
of life.
"People are going to have a
chance to shine," Corine
Burgess, director of public
information, said.
County Administrator Carl
Cool directed his department
heads and directors to solicit
action steps from all employ-
ees, Burgess explained.
During a meeting
Wednesday, they will present
those recommendations to
administration.
In order to be feasible
action steps, Burgess said the
ideas must be simple, measur-
able, innovative and commu-
nicated.
"This will give our employ-
ees a sense of ownership," she
said. "Especially if their sug-
gestions are implemented.
They're the people doing the
work. They know."
In so doing, the county staff
will have to abandon the sta-
tus quo and not lean on the
"we've always- done it this
way" crutch, Burgess said.
Some of the goals for the
29 departments include
installing software for work
orders and a preventative
maintenance schedule for the
Facilities Management
Department; reducing county-
wide average response times
by 30 seconds for the
Emergency Medical Services
department; and developing a
communication plan outlining
restructuring for the Human
Resources department.
"I'm excited about it,"
Parks and Recreation director
Vickie Pontius said Friday. "It
parallels \\at the board's pri-
orities are.":


Goals of and for
the Highlands County
Board of County Commissioners

1) Develop and implement an organizational structure and
budgeting process that provides the highest value of services
possible for our citizens.

2) Provide an accurate and candid communication and
information program for all major stake holders staff,
board, citizenry and other elected officials.

3) Develop a strategic growth plan that emphasizes pro-
tection of natural resources, preserves the quality of life,
maximizes utilization of public infrastructure and insures the
most efficient expenditure of public funds.


Through anonymous sur-
veys and open dialogue,
Pontius receives ideas year
round from her relatively
small staff of 22.
"I don't expect anything
new and innovative from
them," she said.
So, when Cool sought feed-
back from his 440 employees,
Pontius phrased the question
slightly differently to her peo-
ple.
"Of all the things (modera-
tor) Tommy Todd said, I liked
his question, 'Why do we do
this?'" she said.
The responses should
reveal bureaucratic redundan-
cy that bogs the day-to-day
operations of any office,
Pontius said.
As an example, she cited
the payroll process, which she
said requires a "mad scram-
ble" for her office Monday
mornings to ensure there are
no clerical errors.
Several signatures proving
oversight are required from
line supervisors to the finance
office, she said, which results
in hours of wasted time each
pay period.
"It'll be interesting to see
how the other departments
report back on this," Pontius
said, noting that her secretary
spends up to two hours per
pay period verifying time
sheets for the smaller depart-
ment. ..
W'bli the softball complex


nearing completion, Pontius
needs another priority project,
to which she wants to have
Glades Electric general man-
ager and chief executive offi-
cer Tommy Todd steer the
Parks and Recreation
Advisory Committee.
Todd donated this service
to the county, helping it to
form its goals.
"Without a plan, you really
can't go anywhere," Burgess
said, explaining that the
process has caused her self re-
evaluation.
To promote better commu-
nications between the county
and the public while freeing
valuable storage space,
Burgess wants to create an
electronic database contain-
ing 50 percent of the planning
and zoning department's pub-
lic records.
With approval from the
board, the proper software
and permission to contract the
archiving, Burgess said her
measurable action step should
be accomplished within 12
months of implementation.
"It's a win-win situation,"
'Burgess said of the ongoing
goals process. "I admire the
board for doing this."

GRAND DADDY CAR SHOW RETURNS MARCH 10th
Avon Park- Eight years ago when Wells Dodge Chrysler
moved from their original location on Main Street in
downtown Avon Park to their current sight on US 27
between Avon Park and Sebring, they hosted a Car Show
as part of their grand opening festivities. Little did they
know or plan on the event becoming an annual affair. Yet,
eight years later, Wells Dodge Chrysler continues to host
the annual event on the Saturday before the 12 Hours of
Sebring race. This truly is the grand daddy of classic car
shows in Highlands County.


100+ Classics
In 1999 the car show started with less than 40 classic
vehicles on display, but the show has grown annually
with 126 cars and trucks being
shown last year. The participants
share that this is one of the most fun
and enjoyable shows that they attend
annually. One of the reasons is that
there is no entry fee and no judging. i Cll lHRYR
"Bring what you have and show it off.
No pressure." With that atmosphere
the Wells show attracts numerous
cars and trucks that have never been
displayed before such as a rare 1968
flat nosed Daytona Charger or a
Crosley Hotshot similar to the first
winner of the Sebring Classic. One of
the many vehicles that we know will
be shown this year is one of Evil
:SKinevil's- austor cars. With over a r l.i;
"luiiled pre- 1980 vehicles on dis- I I
play the chances are pretty good that
you will see a car or truck like the one
you had when you were a teenager.


No Entry Fee
Show times are 9:00 am to 2:00 pm
Saturday, March 10th at Wells Dodge

people in the business com-
munity. The events should
prove useful to local business
leaders, Erik Treudt, project
coordinator for the Sebring
Airport Authority, said.
The seminars are "a good
opportunity for networking
with other businesses," Treudt
said. "It's kind of like an
incubator for businesses to be
able to get some kind of a bet-
ter feel for what's happening


in different areas."
The airport benefits from
hosting events like these as
well, Treudt said, because
they allow business leaders to
see what the airport has to
offer.
"We're trying to really get
business folks to the airport,"
Treudt said. He added that
hosting the event is an oppor-
tunity for the airport to "give
back to the business commu-


nity."
The seminars are free of
charge, and refreshments will
be provided. Treudt asks any-
one planning to go to
Tuesday's event to RSVP with
him so he knows how many
refreshments to provide.

the two upcoming
"Webinars," contact Treudt at

Faith-based primary health clinic nears opening


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christophelr: tuiley @newssun. coin
SEBRING Samaritan's
Touch Care Center, a Christ-
centered, free, primary care
medical center, is closer to
opening, perhaps as soon as
the end of March.
The staff are only waiting
on the restricted drug pre-
S scription permit in order to
get started.
The center is at 3015
Herring Ave., just off
Memorial Drive, opposite the
Comcast office.
Diana Furr has been the pri-
mary agent and the mover
behind the project.
But it isn't really her, she
said. It is God who has pro-
vided whether with fund-
ing, land, equipment or talent.
The center is an ambitious
idea to provide primary


medical care to those without
medical insurance, regardless
of immigration status, and
who earn within 150 percent
of federal poverty guidelines.
The idea is to provide an
alternative to hospital emer-
gency room care, by creating
a medical center for needy
families.
Furr stressed the object of
the center is to provide quali-
ty care, not just the basics,
because the goal is to increase
the well-being of its patients.
For example, a course in how
to self-manage diabetes is
being arranged.
The project is being funded
through grants and donations.
Dr. Luis Pena serves as
medical director. Nancy
Waitkus, registered nurse, is
the director of clinical opera-
tions, and Carol Derrick is


director of case management.
The center is now actively
seeking volunteers.
Nurses of all kinds, social
workers, physician assistants
and doctors are needed for
day-to-day operations.
The hope is enough people
will volunteer that the work
can be spread widely and not
become a burden to anyone.
Furr also hopes local labo-
ratories and special providers,
like diagnostic centers with
CT scan machines and other
sophisticated, cutting edge
equipment will be willing to
provide needed services.
Thursday evening about 30
nurses and social workers, all
members of the Parish Nurses
association, toured the center,
coming away impressed with
its potential.
Furr has also met with care


Post hosts second USO Revue Show


AVON PARK Get ready
for another spectacular USO
Revue Show by Bonnie Gray
Productions at the VFW Post
9853 in Avon Park.
"When the 'boys' were
over there, Bob Hope took his
show with all 'the girls' to let
the 'boys' know we were
there for them and to raise
their spirits. Well, I think it's
time to do this again ... for all


the 'boys' who just came
home," organizer Betty Lou
Nagy said. "And, of course,
don't forget the old 'boys,'
they like to remember when
they first saw Marilyn
Monroe, Judy Garland,
Frances Langford, Marlene
Dietrich, Betty Grable, and
the famous Rockettes of New
York City."
The post is hosting a sec-


ond USO Revue at 7 p.m.
Friday, March 16.
Tickets are on sale at the
post, 75 N. Olivia Drive,
phone 452-9853. The cost is
$10 a ticket.

managers at Florida Hospital
Heartland Division, and is
scheduled to meet with the
nursing director of Highlands
Regional Medical Center.
Samaritan's Touch Care
Center intends to treat people
"wholistically," Furr said,
meaning paying attention to


the spirit as well as the body.
One space has been dedi-
cated as a prayer room, and
there will be a spiritual direc-
tor.
Furr remains awed at how
much has happened in less
than a year, and how easily
some of it fell into place.


"The Lord is putting it all
together in perfect timing,"
she told the nurses Thursday
night. "It's been a thrilling
adventure," she said with a
beautiful smile, "just a
thrilling adventure."

How to avoid costly housing
before and after a divorce


By Judy Welker
Divorce is rarely easy
and often means a
lot of difficult
decisions. One of the most
important decisions is what
to do about the house.
In the middle of the
heavy emotional and
financial turmoil, what you
need most is some non-
emotional, straightforward,
specific information and
answers.
"Once you know how a
divorce affects your
home, your mortgage
and taxes, critical
decisions are easier."
Neutral, third party infor-
mation can help you make
logical, rather than emo-
tional, decisions.


Probably the first
decision is whether you
want to continue living in
the house. Will the familiar
surroundings bring you
comfort and emotional
security, or unpleasant
memories? Do you want to
minimize change by staying
where you are, or sell your
home and move to a new
place that offers a new
start?
Only you can answer
those questions, but there
will almost certainly be
some financial repercus-
sions to your decision
process. What can you
afford? Can you manage
the old house on your new
budget? Is refinancing pos-
sible? Or is it better to sell
and buy?


mistakes



How much house can you
buy on your new budget?
To help you know what
questions you should ask
and how to arrive at the
right answer for your
specific situation, a FREE
special report has been
prepared by industry
experts entitled "Divorce:
What You Need to Know
About Your House, Your
Mortgage and Taxes"

Orchid Hill students gain award ai -


winning skills at Sebring stables .


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy @ newssun.com
SEBRING In her two
years running Orchid Hill
Stables, Sarah Holton has led
her students to a remarkable
run of success.
Ten of Holton's students
competed in the Orlando
Arabian Horse Club Fun
Show Series, a prestigious
three-show series that con-
cluded in October. Ten of the
contest's 38 awards went to
Orchid Hills an astonishing
feat considering it was the
group's first year at the con-
test.
Holton provides horses and
equipment to her students,
which makes learning more
affordable for people of all
ages. Having horses on-site
opens the door for a wide
range of horse enthusiasts
who wouldn't be able to get
involved otherwise.
"There aren't that many
opportunities for people who
don't own horses," Holton
said.


PLAY
Continued from 1A
"Some parts of it couldn't be
re-used, the parts were outdat-
ed or unavailable."
Noting that the two groups
were after the same limited
pot of money, Varady
approached PTO president
Laura Teal and a joint effort
ensued.
"Let's face it," he said. "It's
a small community."
As far as the Lake Placid
Noon Rotary Club was con-
cerned, the community isn't
too small for the civic organi-
zation to commit $15,000.
Varady acknowledged the


AUDIT
Continued from 1A
February's audit is the second
for Brooker's internal audit
division, which underwent the
process about six years ago
by The NCT Group.
By advertising that his
office complies with the insti-
tute's standards, Jamison's
auditors must subject them-
selves to its scrutiny about
every six years.
Jamison had three choices
- have the Institute of
Internal Auditors evaluate
them at an estimated cost of
$16,000; contract with any
qualified certified public
accountant or audit firm,
which would average between
$5,000-$10,000; or use the
self-evaluation/independent
validator method.
All are accepted by the
institute, he said.
"We have never met Steve
Hooper in our lives," Jamison
said at the suggestion that
another county's just going to
protect its counterparts. "We
broadcast this message. We
had no idea who would
reply."
Jamison said Wilson and


The horses that compete
from Orchid Hills are show
horses, which are different
than jumping or barrel-racing
horses. At contests, the show
horses participate in pleasure
events, where the object is to
"make the horse look pretty,"
Holton said.
Horses compete in two cat-
egories at the pleasure events.
In the English class, horses
are judged based on their pos-
ture and three gaits: walk, trot
and canter. In the Western
class, the horses are judged on
their jog, which is a more
relaxed gait. The Western
class is more difficult for the
riders, Holton said, for a sim-
ple reason "it's harder to
make a horse go slowly."
Riders are judged on
Equitation, or proper riding
form (which is sitting upright


$110,000 price tag; which
could be considered expen-
sive.
He said they didn't want to
settle and wanted to "do it
right" in building a unique
playground.
Varady said the new will
augment the old, and is
designed to appeal to children
of all ages and abilities.
"The minimum number of
kids that this will impact is
800," he said, admitting that
he didn't know how many
handicapped children reside
in Highlands.
Part of his goal is to raise
awareness that a full-access
playground might become
reality.


Woods were more critical in
judging themselves than
Hooper, who as an instructor
for the institute and whose
professional reputation is at
stake, had his own incentives
to bring objectivity and
integrity to the process.
The final cost to Highlands
taxpayers was $586.75 -
$218.75 in travel and $184
for two rooms.
"We would have no prob-
lem whatsoever if anybody is
willing to pay $16,000 for the
IIA to audit us," Jamison said.
Jamison will lobby Brooker
to post Hooper's final report
on the clerk's Web page.
In addition, he will about
posting the joint committee
report on the library audit,
which resulted from the meet-
ings between Brooker,
County Administrator Carl
Cool, Jamison, commission
chairman C. Guy Maxcy and
local Certified Public
Accountant and Sebring
council president Jeff
Carlson.
The joint committee's
report doesn't negate or
replace the final report
released in November,
Jamison said.


with the shoulders back and
the chin up). Holton said her
students usually score better
in contests than the horses in
the pleasure class. "Lesson
horses aren't always the best-
looking," she said.
Most of the kids in the
Orchid Hills program take
lessons for an hour a week,
Holton said, because it's diffi-
cult for many of them to find
time for more. The limited
timeframe makes the kids
work that much harder.
"The hour is intense,"
Holton said, "and I give the
kids a lot of credit."
Holton has 10 girls actively
competing now, and the group
travels to contests all over
Florida. The group won't have
to travel too far for the next
contest on their schedule,
however, because it will take


With access open to the
public weekends, he said it'll
be a place that could be
embraced by all county resi-
dents.
The town will supply fenc-
ing, gate access and a shared
parking area, according to
Vickie Pontius, director of
Parks and Recreation.
Saundra Bass was the key
to success, Varady said. She
made the playground commit-
tee aware of the grant from
Parks and Recreation.
"That really spurred the
community involvement," he
said. "Without her, we would-
n't be where we are right
now."
In other business, the coun-
ty board will consider funding
courthouse security improve-
ments, proclaim March
"Purchasing Month" and con-
tinue its discussion of the cap-
ital financial schedule.

vidual awards as well, includ-
ing Allison, Stein, Amanda
Jernigan, Gayle Pleasants,
Sarah Orrell and Erin Lamb.
Holton is particularly excit-
ed about the prospects of Hot
Diamond Rio, a 4-year-old
horse she is training to
become a lesson horse. When
Rio turns 6, Holton said, he's
going to be "incredible,"
because he has the "perfect
personality" for a lesson
-Hbrse'.' t "" '
"He likes to-go in the ring,


and he knows how to behave,"
Holton said. "He goes in there
and has fun. A show horse has
to be a ham. He has to say
'Look at me!'"
Hot Diamond Rio had plen-
ty of success at the Orlando
contest, where he earned the
Reserve High Point Arabian
Horse award, as well as High
Point awards in three Adult
Rider Divisions.
But competition isn't the
only thing Orchid Hills is
about. Holton teaches all ages
of horse enthusiasts, ranging
in age from 6 to 40 years old.
She also leads five to nine-
mile trail rides at Highlands
Hammock State Park once a
month. Because the trail rides
are more advanced, four rid-
ing lessons are necessary
before taking the trip.
Holton said her job descrip-
tion is not limited to any one
area, and the first thing she
asks a new student is "what
do you want to learn?"
"Whatever they want to do,
we do," Holton said
"Whatever goals they have,
we try to help them reach
them."


Holton teaches a wide vari-
ety of lessons to her students,
from how to buy and care for
a horse to health issues. She
even teaches tooth care.
"The majority of students
just want to have a good
time," she said.
Orchid Hills Stables are
located at 419 Ranchero Drive
in Sebring. For more informa-
tion, contact Holton at 655-
1582 or visit the Web site at

Multi-level Marketing




Using high tech in age-old occupation


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher tuffley @ newssun.comr
SEBRING Making a liv-
ing through multi-level mar-
keting depends on two essen-
tial components: Hard work
and a good product.
In that, it is no different
from any other business.
What is different is the
stay-at-home, independent-
contractor aspect of the work.
But what is an aggressive,
modern company going to do
to grow its business if its
sales force is scattered all
over the nation?
Health fairs, trade shows,
private parties and word of
mouth are important factors,
but face to face only goes so
far.
This is one reason the
XanGo company, which sells
a juice made from mangos-
teen fruit, has gone virtual in
a big way.
It has.a typical Web site
where individuals may sign
up as new distributors, or eas-
ily buy its product, for exam-
ple.
But it has moved beyond
the usual and just begun an
experiment in holding
Webinars that is seminars
over the Internet.
With special software, par-
ticipating individuals can
slave their computers to a
central unit, which takes over
the monitor in the sense that
everyone sees the same visu-
als. That way one person can
talk to dozens at the same


time, while using all the
advantages of computer
graphics.
Sound does not transmit
with the visual, however, so
conference telephone calls
take place simultaneously
allowing for back-and-forth
conversation in real time.
Linda Boyd, who has been
a XanGo distributor for about
three months, was impressed
with how simple the company
made signing up for business.
She said she began selling
XanGo thinking it would sup-
plement her income, and was-
n't really interested in the
money.
"I like helping people ful-
fill their dreams," she said.
"At first I didn't look at the
business side of it, but now I
see it. There is such a poten-
tial to make money. It's won-
derful to see how the Lord is
trusting me to be a good stew-
ard of what He is giving me,"
she said with a radiant smile.
She quickly added that hard
work is needed. In fact, she
gets out on the road for a por-
tion of every day.
Cold calling is a large part
of what she does. She said it
makes her feel pushy and she
hasn't found that part easy.
But she also believes the
challenge has helped her grow
as a person. For the first time,
she is going to take drawing
classes at the Highlands Art
League.
"That's something I would-
n't have done," she said. "So


Payback's a cinch (maybe)


According
to Wikepedia,
multi-level
marketing,
also called
network mar-
keting, "is a
business
model that
combines
direct market-
ing with fran-
chising.
"In a multi-
level market-
ing arrange-
ment, individ-
uals associate
with a parent
company as

at Reflections on the Lake.


it's exciting. It's very excit-
ing."
According to the XanGo
Web site, the company was
established in 2002. It posted


$50 million in sales the
first year. For more infor-
mation go to www.myman-
gosteen. com/lboyd, or call

an independ-
ent contractor or franchisee
and are compensated based
on their sales of products or
service, as well as the sales
achieved by those they bring
into the business."
Before I go further, I
should say my editors don't
want me quoting from
Wikepedia in general it's
a free-for-all Web site where
inaccurate information creeps
in but it seemed the right
place to start when talking
about this subject.
Multi-level marketing has
a similarly spotty reputation.
But there's nothing, wrong
with the above definition just
as, under the right condi-
tions, there's nothing wrong
with a legitimate multi-level


marketing
opportunity.
Amway is an
example.
Ultimately,
this way of
earning a liv-
ing is all
about selling
and finding
creative ways
to reach an
ever larger
audience. It
helps if the
product or
service being
sold is actu-
ally worth-
while.


Linda
Boyd has no doubts.
She sells bottles of fruit
juice with the brand name of
XanGo. According to the
company, its juice is made
from the mangosteen fruit,
which grows in tropical
Southeast Asia.
The company is careful
about its claims.
"This is a food," Boyd
emphasized, "not a medi-
cine."
Yet the literature that
comes with the product
makes a point of its history
as a native treatment and
health drink and claims it
helps with allergies and the
pain of arthritis.

Auto Options: Auto accessories and a franchise opportunity


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Tom Tullo is
a car guy and has been
involved with auto acces-
sories since he was 14.
Eleven years ago he opened
Auto Options at 106 W. Main
St. in Avon Park. Now he's
opened a second store in
Sebring and is ready to fran-
chise his operation.
Specializing in car acces-
sories, Tullo has everything to
dress up your car, truck and
sport utility vehicle. And if
he doesn't have it in stock, he
can get it immediately.
Whether it's a car alarm, a
mobile security system with
one device to control every-
thing by remote, a sun roof,


TUFFLEY
Continued from 9A
Mangosteen fruit contains
xanthones, a pamphlet states.
It says these are natural
antioxidants (but I have to
say, a Google search for xan-
thones, outside advertising
promotions, turned up
empty).
All that aside, many foods
have healing properties, this
may well be one of them I
just can't say for sure.
But Boyd is a true believ-
er, and drinks the juice her-
self.
Indeed, she feels God has
led her to this place and
product, and she wants to
share her good fortune.
Boyd, and her husband
Stuart, both Florida natives
from Homestead, moved up
to Highlands County in
August of 2004.
She had worked at a
Christian school down south
and at first wanted to-recreate
her life from there up here.
"I thought I'd fall back
into place," she said about
relocating, but in reaching
out to'ai new church' congre-
gatio~n she changed her life as
- well' --
"I wanted to find other
people who praised the
Lord," Boyd said. "And I
found them at Bible
Fellowship Church."
She also discovered Susan
Patterson and Susie Chew,
who were already a part of
the XanGo network. While
attending a party Chew held
and Patterson proposed,
Boyd first tried the juice and
later took the plunge, becom-
ing an active XanGo distribu-
tor three months ago.
Boyd said what appealed
to her the most about the
opportunity, was the chance
to be her own boss. But it
meant leaving her comfort
zone.
"I prayed about this a lot,"


cruise control, power win-
dows and lock, he has it.
"Because features vary in dif-
ferent cars, someone can buy
a new car, but want a feature
they previously enjoyed,"
Tullo said. They may want a
keyless entry, or the pad on
the door, lumbar seats, a CD
change, and a navigation sys-
tem or satellite radio. Stereo
upgrades, bug shields, steps
for trucks and exhaust sys-
tems are also available.
"We carry DOT-approved
lights that are better than what
came from the factory. Our
halogen bulbs with xenon gas
is brighter, with a blue tint
that creates less shadows so
you can see farther," Tullo
said.


she said, "I'm not really
sociable, and a lot of people
are skeptical at first. It really
builds character to learn how
to accept rejection."
Juice is bought and sold by
the case, and a $35 member-
ship allows an individual a
discount when buying in
bulk. Boyd says she sells sin-
gle bottles to encourage peo-
ple to take a 90-day trial.
Then, when they order, she
acts as a distributor provid-
ing the juice to the buyer.
What makes this a multi-
level, or network market,
however, is that instead of
simply selling to her cus-
tomers, Boyd encourages
them to become distributors
as she is.
That is because she gets a
cut from every bottle of juice
they sell as Chew does
from every bottle Boyd sells.
And so on and so on.
Boyd gave me a pamphlet
that explained the company's
compensation plan, but I
couldn't understand it.
It said there are four ways
to make money with the
company, beginning with
simple retail. The seller, hav-
ing paid wholesale for the
juice, sell, it at a profit.
Sellers who get their buy-
ers to become sellers in turn
may dramatically increase


He is especially excited
about his franchise opportuni-
ty that is available all over
Florida. It will be a turnkey
operation that is reasonably
priced, depending on the loca-
tion and the building.
Bookkeeping, payroll and
taxes can be covered by cor-
porate also.
"There are people who
know how to do the work on
cars, but it scares people
when they're faced with legal
stuff. We offer a non-compet-
.ing territory and are eager to
set someone in Lake Placid
and Wauchula. Our product
lines are protected because we
are a large buyer and they
know we do quality work,"
Tullo said.


their profits, the company
says, based on what other
people sell, because commis-
sions pay back up, the line.
The general business idea
made sense, but I got lost
amid the sliding rates and
time-line graphs with labels
like "Global Bonus Pool" and
"PowerStart Basic or
PowerStart Plus" -but keep
in mind I lose the power of
rational thought when faced
with columns of numbers,
and percentages make me
nauseous.
SI feel bad being among the
skeptical, because Boyd is
pure sincerity. She is very
happy with XanGo, both with
company policies and its
product.
Certainly, if the juice sells,
it affords her an excellent
opportunity to make money.
But Boyd said she isn't in
this to get rich. She really
believes in her product. "But
I don't do it for the money,
that's a benefit. I've always
been a giver, this is an
avenue to give.
"It's my desire to not only
tell people about the health
benefits of the mangosteen,"
she said, "but point them to
the creator of the mangos-
teen. I do this business to
serve my Creator."

Rafael Lugo (right) of Auto Options answers Dominick
Mastro's questions about various stereos and tuners.


He also offers a sign busi-
ness that creates graphics on
cars and for buildings, or ban-
ners and stake signs for yards.
He can create election-type
signs or lighted signs for
stores with a fast turn around
of only a day.
Additionally, Tullo offers
window film for interiors.


"We've seen before and after
analyses of window tint on
commercial buildings, and it
pays for itself within the first
or second year," Tullo said.
Walk-ins are welcome, but for
big jobs, appointments are
necessary. Auto Options
offers a lifetime warranty on
their window tinting.


"You never have to worry
about it. It is an unconditional
lifetime warranty. Even if
someone forgets and uses
Windex on it and it fades, we
take care of it. When a car
comes in, we enter it on our
computer, which ensures a
perfect cut. It's always per-
fect," Tullo said.
With the price of today's
cars, Tullo is proud that he
carries full-coverage liability,
because accidents happen.
"Even the factory can have
problems and place recalls,
but we stand behind every-
thing we do when a car comes
in here. I'd be picky about
where I take my own car and
that's how we operate here,"
Tullo said.
Auto Options is at 106 W.

Records of retired veterans


reviewed for back

Lindsey Whittington with a check for $1,000 awarded to them for a Adopt-A-Spot
Beautification Project.


Special to the News-Sun
The Defense Finance and
Accounting Service along
with the Department of
Veterans Affairs are review-
ing records of retirees receiv-
ing Combat-Related Special
Compensation or Concurrent
Retirement and Disability
Payments to determine who
might be owed back pay.
If not receiving either
CRSC or CRDP, the veteran is
not affected by this situation.
Of about 130,000 retired
pay accounts to be reviewed,
more than 42,000 have been
completed. More than 10,000
of those accounts were found
to be up to date, requiring no
retroactive payments. The
remainder of this group will
receive back pay from DFAS,
the VA, or both. Accounts
found to be in need of a
retroactive pay will be cor-
rected with a lump sum pay-
ment.
DFAS and VA officials
won't know if a payment is
due until a pay account as


been reviewed. Retirees enti-
tled to payments will be noti-
fied when payments are made
to explain why they are
receiving the additional
money.
Under previous law, the
military retired pay and VA
disability compensation
together could not be greater
than your retirement pay.
This meant that your military
retired pay had to be reduced
by your disability payments.
The laws creating CRSC and
CRDP ended that limit on
retired military pay.
However, DFAS and the VA
continued to use the payment
policy designed for the old
h Wh bed
Ww bed


pay
law. They are starting VA pay-
ments, and offsetting retired
pay, on the date of the VA dis-
ability pay decision, not on
the eligibility date.
This system worked under
the old law when you couldn't
begin disability pay until
retired pay had been reduced.
For issues concerning enti-
tlement to back pay,.call 1-

Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to
4:30 p.m. For questions con-
cerning VA disability ratings
or other VA issues, call 1-800-

regarding regular CRSC,

issues, call 1-800-321-1080.

Not impressed with this year's Oscar winners


This was one of the years I
couldn't be bothered to watch
the Oscars. The reason was
simple: There were no movies
up for the top awards that I
really cared about.
For that matter I didn't see
a lot of movies listed that I
want to see even after the
Oscars. The only one that rose
to the level of "gee, maybe I
should run to Blockbuster and
check it out" is "The Queen."
And I'm not exactly in a hurry
to do it.
It's not the first time I've
disagreed with the Oscars. In
fact, the times I agree with the
Academy Awards far outnum-
ber the times I don't. So I
guess I shouldn't be overly
surprised that Oscar's choices
bug me.
What I don't understand is
people's tastes. Now I admit I
didn't see the movies that
won, which does harm my
argument to a certain extent.
The thing is, I haven't been
particularly moved to see the


movies in question,
which I think should
count for something.


Laura's
Look


I know one reason Laura
I'm cranky. "The
Prestige," the best movie last
year in my humble opinion,
only came up with two measly
nominations. And won nei-
ther. How this great movie,
full of twists and turns and
with great performances, be
ignored as it was ... well,
something else not to forgive
the Academy Awards for.
And "Over the Hedge"
doesn't get a nod? It was so
funny! It was cute! I liked it!
OK, so it's just my opinion.
James says he didn't like it
that much (though he agrees
with me that "The Prestige"
was a great film).
I can't talk about the Oscars
without mentioning Al Gore's
"'An Inconvenient Truth,"
which won an Oscar for "Best
Documentary." I haven't seen
the film, and don't have any
desire to see it. If I want to be


lectured on about one
person's view on
how I'm destroying


Ware the planet ... well, to
be honest, I don't
want to be lectured.
Let me say upfront that I
didn't study weather in school
and I am not crazy enough to
try to predict what it's going
to be like in the next 24 hours,
much less the next 10 years.
But let's have a reality
check here the guys at The
Weather Channel can't get it
right 100 percent of the time
and we expect these people to
tell us what the temperature
will be 10 years from now -
or beyond?
Not only that, but I believe
the Bible, which says God
will destroy the world when
it's time. I doubt that man is
going to be able to beat Him
to it.
Al Gore wants to make a
movie about global warming,
more power to him. He wants
to work on reducing his "car-


bon footprint," I say go for it.
I would hope he is willing to
do what he'd like to force oth-
ers to do environmental
hypocrisy is one of my pet
peeves.
But back to the Oscars. It's
obvious that the people who
vote on the Oscars don't have
the same tastes in movies that
I do. I can live with that I
mean, in a First Amendment
kind of way. I just hope that
they will continue to make the
movies I like, even if they
can't bring themselves to
award them come Oscar time.
That reminds me I should
probably take some time soon
to pop my DVD of "The
Prestige" in and watch it.
Even without a gold statue, it
ranks as a best picture in my
book.

dent. She can be contacted by

A nation ful of

good kids
Editor:
On Feb. 25 my wife and I
read an article in the News-
Sun that was written by a
young lady from Sebring who
is now a freshman student at
Florida A&M University in
Tallahassee. In the article that
was entitled, "Nation con-
dones depreciating value of
youth," the author attempts to
evaluate and judge our youth
of today by saying that as a
result .of their behavior and
attitudes, "the future is in
danger." Well, I'm here to say
that nothing is further from
the truth!
After reading her article,
we went to Sunridge Baptist
Church and the first thing we
noticed that Sunday morning
were high school age young
adults standing outside the
church doors. These young
adults were well dressed, well
mannered and eager to hear
the word of God. These
young responsible citizens
are not social misfits that
nobody wanted to "hang
with." These kids included
individuals that are consid-
ered extremely popular in
school, hard working and
looking ahead to college and
a bright future.
In most cases, these kids
can't afford to go to college
without a lot of hard work
and keeping a high grade
point average, so that their
dreams of a college scholar-
ship can be realized. Again on


Wednesday night, the church
had a special youth program
and to our surprise, the youth
conference room was packed
with kids of all ages (includ-
ing all the ones that were at
the Sunday service).
Again, these kids were well
dressed, well behaved and
eager to learn. Not all having
cars, some have to walk to get
to church.
Recently, my wife and I
had the opportunity to travel
with a group of high school
age youth to North Carolina
and spend several days with
them on the ski slopes. I can-
not say enough good things
about the time we spent with
these kids and how much we
learned from them. This same
group of American youth is
eager to get started on fund
raising projects in their com-
munity, so that other trips can
be planned that's right,
they want to earn their way.
As a retired park ranger
and law enforcement officer,
I can tell you that I have per-
sonally seen thousands of
young Americans enjoying
the great outdoors with their
families and behaving in a
manner that would make any
American citizen proud.
In my professional and per-
sonal opinion 99 percent of
the kids you meet today are
simply, wonderful individu-
als. Yes, there may always be
that 1 percent that sometimes
makes us feel like the whole
generation is going sour (just
as it was when we were kids),
but it's important to remem-
ber that it is only a small frac-


tion of the youth in America
that can't seem to get their
priorities in line.
Let us not forget that it is
those college age kids that
Ms. (Georgia) Dawkins talks
about in her article as having,

Poverty not

simple riddance

Editor:
There are many people
who have professed to having
the knowledge to eliminate
poverty. Do they know some-
thing that Mother Nature
does not know?
Nature is full of poverty.
When a seed falls in the
forest it may sprout, but it
will wither away because of
the poverty of sunlight. In the
desert very few plants will
grow because of the poverty
of water. Soil has a lot to do
in how well the plants will
grow. In the northern climates
plants stop growing in the
winter because of the poverty


of warm weather. There is a
difference in degree of the
amount of sunshine, water,
and growing season through-
out the earth.
The over production of
seeds adds to the poverty
rate. There are many different
plant species vying for the
same space. Not only does
each species -compete with
other species, but also com-
pete with each other.
"Survival of the fittest." It
makes no sense for the weak
to survive. The species would
surely die out.
All animals, direct or indi-
rect, depend on plants for
their survival. Most animals
in the rain forest are tree
dwellers because there is lit-
tle plant life on the ground.
There is little or no animal
life in the desert because of
the absent of vegetation.
Animals are under the
same nature's laws as plants.
The overproduction of off-
springs adds to the poverty
rate. There is only so much
plant life available for ani-
mals to compete for. Like
plants, there are many species
vying for food. The more
food that is available, the
more offspring that will sur-
vive.
Because of our ego or
pride, we don't consider
humans as an animal, but we
are. We'are affected by
nature's laws just like any
other animal. "Survival of the
fittest." The road to civiliza-
tion began when our ancestor

with a bigger brain and an
opposing thumb picked up a
weapon to defend against
their enemy. With more off-
spring surviving more food
was necessary. The first
attempt to eliminate poverty
was the development of agri-
culture. And the race was on.
Man made poverty. As civ-
ilization progressed the divi-
sion of labor grew. How is the
goods divided? To simplify
the explanation: Ten persons
well produce 100 baskets of
goods. If each person
received 10 baskets then
there would be no poverty.
This has never happened and
never will due to greed. Even
socialism does not divide
evenly. The percentage in
poverty depends on the
unevenness of the distribu-
tion of the goods. Money is
medium of exchange so we
can substitute money for the
baskets. All incomes are not
the same.
Humans have a dilemma.
First: The preamble to the
constitution states that all
men have the right to life, lib-
erty and the pursuit of happi-
ness. Instinct gives us the
desire for self and species
preservation. That results in
an ever increasing popula-
tion.
On the flip side. The earth
has a finite amount of culti-
vatable land. We have already
taken a large portion of land
for our own use that was for-
mally used by other species.
We are also using some food
(corn, sugar) to produce fuel
for our autos. By allowing the
weak to survive along with


the strong denigrates the race.
Just a thought.
Is there anyone who can
salve our dilemma?

County smart

to ask questions

Editor:
Regarding the Highlands
County commission meeting of
Feb. 27 on the proposed acqui-
sition of the Pearce Lockett
Estate by Highlands County, I
offer the following:
Many of the issues raised by
concerned citizens have been
resolved. However, there are
too many unanswered ques-
tions about the land use to sup-
port such an acquisition by
Highlands County.
1. The (Southwest Florida)
water district has not been
forthcoming about the court
order restricting use of the land.
At previous meetings on the
subject, the public was led to
believe that the Lockett Estate
property could be auctioned for
other uses threatened by
commercial development. In
reality, a court has determined
that the recipient of the proper-
ty, whether buyer or gift recepi-
ent, must adhere to clear
restrictions on future use,
including mandated access by
the public. Restricting the
hours of public access, as sug-
gested by some, may be subject
to future litigation by anyone
who wants access when the so-
called park is closed.
2. The court order is reported
to state that the homestead
must be open to the public, and
that the descendants of the
Lockett family have unlimited
rights to visit the private ceme-
tery located on the property.
Because of the court order, and


the existence of a private ceme-
tery on the land, the commer-
cial value of the property is
greatly reduced.
3. After scrutiny by
Highlands County commis-
sioners, and the county attorney
at the meeting, it became clear
that although the water district
wants to dump the property,
there is no way the land is
threatened by public auction.
Anyone or any corporation
acquiring the property must
adhere to the conditions of the
court order restricting use, and
restricting how a resale could
occur.
4. If the homestead park
project fails, for whatever rea-
sons, it is likely that the taxpay-
ers of Highlands County would
be stuck with a piece of proper-
ty that would be difficult to
sell, and the property would not
be valued at a premium, due to
the use restrictions.
5. The proponents of the
property acquisition would bet-
ter serve the residents of
Highlands County if they were
forthcoming. It appears that
many facts are being withheld
in anticipation of the county
simply accepting the deal.
I applaud the Highlands
County commission for
requesting additional informa-
tion regarding future land use
before buying into this special
interest project.

g Quality, Compassionate Care!

My name is Margaret Yonaley. I have been visiting in the Sebring
area. I needed to have my blood tested several times during my stay.
I chose the Highlands Regional Outreach Lab and it turned out to be
one of my better decisions.
I would like to recognize the entire staff in the Outreach Lab, from
the volunteer out front to the technicians that drew the blood. From
my first visit they made me feel like they cared that 1 was satisfied.
This is not common anymore with so many services you get. I was
impressed with the professionalism of the staff and the overall pro-
cess from checking in to paying for the services.
My husband winters in Sebring and if he needs care he will also head
to Highlands. Just thought you should know what a first rate opera-
tion you have in the Outreach Lab area.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


For such a


time as this

The quest to know God's
will is supreme for those
who want to please God.
I remember when we
longed to get out of debt so I
could stay home with our
children. We wanted our
lives and testimony to count
for God to be part of the
solution and not part of the
problem.
This worthy quest kept us
in prayer and in his word
daily. We heard his "voice"
as he spoke through his
word. Familiar Scriptures
often revealed fresh truths
applicable to our circum-
stance.
Bowing before him in
prayer, his spirit communed
with ours bringing thoughts
and ideas to mind. Often
God confirmed his will
through other believers and
lining up our circumstances
in accord with what we were
gleaning.
It's wonderful to know
that God never wastes a life
but has a purpose for his
children. He uses everything
so that we will be able to
benefit others going through
similar trials.
The calendar reminds me
that today is the Jewish holi-
day, Purim. It commemorates
the deliverance of the Jews
from the massacre Haman
plotted against them as seen
in Esther 7-9.
Esther was gathered with
other young virgins to be
brought to King Ahasuerus'
palace. After 12 months of
preparations, she was pre-
sented to the king. He chose
her as queen to replace
Vashti who had displeased
him.
What a turn of events for
Esther. She may have won-
dered what she, a Jew, was
even doing in the palace in
such a role. But, when she
uncovered a plot by the evil
Haman to extinguish the
Jews, she sent word to her
cousin, Mordecai, who had
raised her and warned her to
keep her ancestry quiet.
Mordecai wanted Esther to
go to the king, but approach-
ing the king without being
summoned was punishable
by death. And then,
Mordecai's words ring out to
us who seek God's will
today. He says in Esther
4:14b,NIV, "Yet who knows
whether you have come to
the kingdom for such a time
as this?"
Esther met the challenge at
this crossroad by approach-
-ing the king (doing so wisely
with a plan) and declaring,
"If I perish, I perish!"
Her step in faith was used
by God to save the Jews
from annihilation.
We never expected to
leave New Jersey and come
to Florida. But, that is how
God, answered our heart's cry
and unfolded his plan.
So, if you're tempted to
ask "What am I doing here?"
whether in your career or
otherwise, seek the Lord's
will. He may have you right
where you are "for such a
time as this." Selah

Nationally televised artist Gary Jenkins gives

workshops at Caladium Arts and Crafts Co-Op


By PATRICIA C. POND
News Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID
amed artist and teacher
Gary Jenkins has been con-
ducting a series of work-
shops in Lake Placid this
week at the invitation of the
Caladium Arts and Crafts Co-
Operative. Jenkins is well known for
his nationally-televised PBS art
show, "The Jenkins Art Studio."
This how-to-paint series ran for 16
years on PBS during the 1980s and
'90s.
When the workshops were
announced, the classes quickly filled
to overflowing.
"I have never seen such a turnout
for an art class in Lake Placid," said
Mara Yeates-Trumbo, who coordi-
nated and hosted the series.
An artist herself, Trumbo
has been friends with
Gary and Kathwren
Jenkins for many
years and has done i'


workshops with the couple in
Sarasota. She has been trying to
coax him to teach in Lake Placid,
but Jenkins was skeptical about the
number of students such an event
would attract.
"When I first asked him to teach
in Lake Placid, he said 'do you think
you can get people out of the orange
groves to paint?' Trumbo remem-
bers. "Then he and his wife visited
me last year and when he saw the
Caladium Co-Op, he decided it
would be a wonderful place to con-
duct a workshop."
Jenkins also realized that he could
work with students on a more per-
sonal basis than was possible in
some of the larger city facilities,
according to Trumbo.
Not only did local artists enroll,
but devotees of Jenkins' method
from Texas, Tennessee,
Kentucky. Indiana and
Michigan made the trip
,'" to Lake Placid for
the four-day series


of classes.
Tennessee
resident
Larry Vadan
said he has
been attend-
ing Jenkins'
workshops since
1990. He and his
friend Claire Weber
traveled here from
Nashville because they
enjoy Jenkins' classes so
much. The couple said they attend at
least one workshop every year at the
different cities where Jenkins teach-
es.
"We're roadies," Vadan laughed.
During the full-day workshops at
the Co-Op this week, Jenkins taught
15 students each day his popular
"wet-onto-wet" oil painting tech-
nique. Students were able to com-
plete an entire 18-by-24-inch canvas
painting in one day, and each work-
shop featured a different composi-
tion.

Artist Gary Jenkins clowns with stu-
dent Pat Holloway of Lake Placid
during his workshop at the
Caladium Co-Op. Jenkins kept up a
humorous and encouraging atmos-
phere during the day-long
workshop.

Jenkins said his "wet-on-wet"
technique is not difficult to under-
stand.
"It's just wet paint on top of wet
paint, mixing colors as you paint.
Yellow placed on top of blue creates
green you blend and mix right on
the canvas. Your canvas is your pal-
let."
Students all work on one composi-
tion during each day's workshop.
Jenkins demonstrates step-by-step on
his own canvas and then moves
about the studio, help-
ing each participant
.t achieve the desired
effect. The more
experienced painters
S also help those new
.*: to the technique,
and a friendly
camaraderie quickly
developed throughout
the room.
Jenkins also painted a
complete work of art
during each class and
these four workshop pieces
are now available for a
silent auction fund-raiser ben-
efiting the Caladium Arts and
SCrafts "Children for Art" pro-
gram.
A native of Brooklyn, N.Y.,
Jenkins began his art career by
attending the Ringling School of Art
in Sarasota. After graduation, he
worked as a keyline artist for a large
greeting card company. During the
early 1970s, he became an art
teacher and gallery painter, special-
izing in floral painting. In addition
to hosting his PBS television paint-

the child. And if there is
more than one sibling, col-
laboration may be involved
as each one gives his version
of the "truth."
Caught with their hands in
the cookie jar, so to speak,
it's amazing how the deed is
rationalized. I remember a
"cookie jar" episode that
took place at our house many
years ago that had nothing to
do with cookies.
The directive had been
given. Playing near the brook
was prohibited. It was only
April and the northern air
was still crisp and the water
frigid. But, on such a bright,
sunny day, playing outdoors
beckoned.
Sometimes children can
bend the rules and not get
caught. But, there are those
times when the evidence is


In spite of the evidence,
did they admit they had dis-
obeyed? No though the
excuses fluttered about my
ears faster than a humming
bird's wings.
"We didn't go in the water;
we were stepping from rock
to rock. We didn't mean it.
We slipped."
However, they had dis-
obeyed the directive, "Don't
go near the brook." Since
they chose to ignore that
instruction, they would have
to pay the consequences,
Since their disobedience
involved all three of them,
they were told that, in this
case, Daddy would adminis-
ter the discipline. They
changed their clothes and
played quietly until the reck-
oning hour.


Once I apprised my hus-
band, Ken, of the situation,
he took each boy aside indi-
vidually. In this way, he
showed respect for each son
and didn't embarrass them in
front of each other.
He spoke with each one
about what they had been
told, how they had disobeyed
and then made excuses. He
listened to what they had to
say. And, by communicating
with them reasonably and at
their level of understanding,
they learned the importance
of obeying for their own
good and telling the truth at


all times. After administering
a couple of controlled spanks
on jean-clad bottoms, a lov-
ing hug and forgiveness fol-
lowed.
Consistency in parenting is
vital. Showing love and
understanding should be an
everyday occurrence in
actions and communication.
Then, when a child must be
taken to task for open defi-
ance, he knows he's in the
hands of a loving parent who
is not out of control.
The object is always to
rescue the child from harm or
foolishness and to restore the


And that is what happened
that day. The boys under-
stood that by disobeying
their parents, they were dis-
obeying God; the flip side
being true also. God gives us
commands and guidelines for
our protection; likewise, par-
ents put rules into place to
protect their children. When
we disobey God, fellowship
is broken and needs restora-
tion.
The far-reaching impact of
this lesson brought the boys
from the charade of "guilty
innocence" to the maturing
reality of godly character.

New Odyssey finishes



out SFCC Matinee Series


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK The South
Florida Community College
Matinee Series will close out
the 2007 season with New
Odyssey at 1:30 p.m.
Tuesday, March 13. Back by
popular demand, the three
members of New Odyssey
will perform almost every
style of music on 30 different
musical instruments in the
SFCC Auditorium, Highlands
Campus.
The incredibly versatile
group, which formed more
than 20 years ago, has per-
formed at thousands of events
worldwide. This funny, novel,
talented, polished, family-ori-
ented group will showcase
their outstanding vocal har-
monies and hilarious comedy
routines, with a great mix of
audience participation.
Gary Todd, drummer and
comic for New Odyssey, has


been in show business since
the age of 2 when he began
performing as an acrobat with
his family act, "The Tumbling
Todds." As well as singing
and performing on more than
15 musical instruments, Todd
is absolutely hilarious, out-
landish, and totally unpre-
dictable.
Michael Jay began singing
and playing guitar at age 12.
By the time he was 21, he
played bass, composed music
for his bands, and had per-
formed alongside national
recording artists. Jay has done
television and radio commer-
cials, and as a personal high-
light, sang the national
anthem for the Chicago Cubs.
Jay plays 10 instruments and
is the vocal strong point of the
band.
Gary Polkow began his
piano training at age 7. By the
age of 8, he was rewriting and


performing traditional classi-
cal children's pieces. His list
of credits includes film, syn-
thesizer sound design, and
music and choir director as
well as musical director of
New Odyssey.

Greg Bonham to perform


in SFCC Matinee Series


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Matinee
show goers are in for a real
treat on Tuesday, March 6,
1:30 p.m., when Australian
trumpeter, Greg Bonham,
showcases his tremendous tal-
ent. The performance will
take place at South Florida
Community College in the
SFCC Auditorium, Highlands
Campus.
Bonham's high energy per-
formance, featuring his origi-
nal songs, powerful voice,
and superb trumpet playing
has established him as an
international headliner. Born
on a sheep farm on the edge
of the Australian outback,
Bonham always dreamed of
becoming an entertainer.
With 150 national television
appearances and countless
club engagements to his cred-
it in Australia, Bonham


learned his trade at an early
age. Ready for new chal-
lenges, Bonham, with his wife
and young daughter, headed
off to England. He wowed
audiences throughout the
United Kingdom for six
years, scoring his own televi-
sion specials for Southern
Television and selling 'an
incredible 14 million records
in Russia.
Bonham was performing at
the New London Theatre in
London's famous West End,
when a Florida nightclub
owner caught his show and
invited him to appear in
Miami Beach. A life changing
decision was made, and the
Bonham family was off to try
their luck in the United
States.

Area vocalist returns to Pennsylvania


SEBRING Singer/song-
writer Carol Kline will be
restarting her singing career
with plans to travel north
through the summer months
in 2007 for the first time in
more than two years. Carol
and her husband, George,
have been living in Sebring
after Carol took a position as
director of activities and vol-
unteer services at a continu-
ing care retirement communi-
ty in Sebring in 2004.
She plans to retire from that
position at the end of April,
and the couple will head north
by mid-May. Kline's schedule
already includes performanc-
es in Virginia, Maryland and
all over southeastern Penn-
sylvania, and they are looking
to especially highlight a new
gospel program.
"We've decided it's time to
travel and sing again," Kline
said. "I've really missed
entertaining and we're start-


ing out with a whole new
gospel program that we are
calling, appropriately enough,
'Coming Home with Carol
and George Kline'."
The Klines have been per-
forming only now and then in
Florida due to Carol's full
work schedule. She is well
known all over Lebanon and
Lancaster County, Pa., having
launched her singing career in
that area in 1989. She now
has five recordings, the latest
being "Love Songs and
Praise," a compilation of


treasured love songs and
favorite gospel numbers.
They are planning to record
again while in the Lebanon,
Pa., area. The couple will
release an all-country record-
ing that will include such old
favorites as "Walk On By,"
"Sweet Dreams," "Four
Walls," "Singing the Blues,"
and more.
Many of these songs will be
performed as duets, now that
husband George is sharing the
stage quite often with his
wife.

State park stays busy with flurry of activities 7 VN


Wow! It's only two months
into 2007 and already more
than 48,000 people have visit-
ed Highlands Hammock State
Park.
Our "Music in the Park"
concerts in January and
February were well attended
and the Step Up Florida 5 K
race, the Community Drum
Circles and various organized
camping groups have kept the
staff hopping. Rangers are
busy leading Monday morn-
ing nature walks, Thursday
evening Ranger's Choice
activities and Saturday night
campfire programs.
The demand for ranger-
guided tram tours necessitated
the addition of Kevin Evans, a
seasonal employee from the
National Park Service, to sup-
plement our regular tour
schedules. It's been so busy,
that I haven't had a chance to
tell you what's coming up
later this spring at the
Hammock.


On Sunday, March
18, join the
Community Drum
Circle from 3-5 p.m.
This activity is
included in your
park admission of $4
per vehicle, so bring
any instruments you
play to this interac-
tive drumming expe-
rience.
On Saturday,
March 31, Walk
America's March of
Dimes fund-raising
walk begins at 9 a.m.
Contact coordinator


THE REAL

FLORIDA

Dorothy Harris


Erica Lavely at 214-3507 to
learn about getting involved
in this worthy cause to fight
birth defects and premature
births.
April will be a month with
many special events and
activities. On Sunday, April 8,
Bible Fellowship Church will
host a non-denominational
Easter Sunrise Service. Take


the first left after
the Ranger Station
on Easter morning
and travel about a
mile to the ball
field area. Worship
begins at 7 a.m. and
don't forget to
bring a lawn chair
to sit on during this
casual, outdoor
service. Sunday,
April 15, is the next
Community Drum
Circle. Then, on
Saturday, April 21,
the park will hold
its annual Earth


Day Event.
This year's Earth Day
Event will be quite different
from past years. While park
admission is still free all day
long on April 21, the park
management has decided to
focus the event on the natural
resources of the park. This
year for Earth Day we want to
get you and your family


w


involved at the park through
ranger-led activities and out-
door recreation.
Earth Day will begin with a
7:30 a.m. 5-K Trail Run.
Registration for the run will
be taken that morning, and
your $10 donation to the
Friends of Highlands
Hammock will be the only
cost associated with this
event. A T-shirt exchange
table will allow you to trade a
shirt you bring for one that
someone else has brought that
day.
Following the 5-K race, an
exotic removal activity will
be held from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
come and enjoy learning more
about our Florida environ-
ment and the delicate balance
of its natural communities.
Join rangers in removing
non-native, exotic plants dur-
ing a stewardship project
that's suitable for all ages. Be
sure to wear old clothes and
wear sturdy shoes, as this is


not a sandal-friendly activity!
Bring gloves, sunblock, hat,
and drinking water. The
Hammock Inn will be open
for lunch or you can choose to
bring a picnic.
Later that night, come back
for a "Music in the Park" con-
cert featuring Ellie and the Tri
Tones. This group will per-
form Blues and Jazz music
under the stars. Concert
admission is just $5 per per-


son, and all accompanied chil-
dren ages 16 and under are
admitted free of charge.
The last "Music in the
Park" concert will be held on
May 19, at 7 p.m. and features
the ever-popular California
Toe Jam Band.

Dorothy Harris is a park serv-
ices specialist at Highlands
Hammock State Park, Sebring.

Dorothy meets Tinman,
Scarecrow, Lion, and of

Wizard of Oz is being pre-

Jenkins won the prestigious
title of one of the "Best Floral

With the support of her new

wife will be returning to tele-

States and Europe. A new
series will be taped in June
2007. The last series that the
couple produced is airing in
Germany and Holland.
"In September, Kathwren
and I are going to Europe to
do painting demonstrations
and book signing, and we
will be appearing on televi-

be training artists to become
certified teachers of the 'wet-

Gary and his artist wife
Kathwren currently reside in
Carson City, Nev., where they


breaks his promise and still
refuses to help Dorothy and
her friends. They find out that
the Wizard is not all great and
powerful as they were led to
believe, but just a man with
no powers at all. The Wizard

top honors
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The LK
Artworks Gallery in down-
town Sebring recently held a
People's Choice Award event
from Feb. 1-22-when gallery
visitors were asked to vote for
their favorite painting. The
contest's grand finale was the
evening of Gallery Walk, Feb.
22, when the gallery had more
than 250 visitors.
More than 100 votes were
cast, and all artists received
votes. It was a great opportu-
nity for gallery owners Linda
and Jim Kegley to get an idea
of what type of artwork their
patrons in Sebring like best.
Artist Judy Quest, of Punta
Gorda, took first place hon-
ors. Her oil painting entitled
"Misty Afternoon" was the
crowd's favorite.
Said Quest recently,
"Striving to emote strong
feelings, I blend layers of
color, adding subtle textures
and details to create a sense of
mood and drama. I try and
create paintings that are truly
distinctive and memorable."
The original is on display at
the gallery, and gicle6 prints
are available in several sizes.
She has originals in oil, pas-
tels and watercolor at the
gallery. Judy Quest is also a
member of Sea Grape Gallery
in Punta Gorda. Her latest

"Country Joe" was the third
place finisher. Cash prizes

to the winning artists.


Anderson is Artist of the Month at Co-op


LAKE PLACID The
Artist of the Month of March
at the Caladium Arts and
Crafts Cooperative in Lake
Placid is Julia Anderson.
Anderson grew up in
Savannah, Ga., where she was
exposed to beautiful old
architecture and historic
parks. She was encouraged by
her dad who was a "wanna
be" artist to appreciate the
beauty. After marriage
Anderson and her husband
lived all over the state of
Florida and finally retired in


Sebring.
In the year 2001, Anderson
was driven off the golf course
by the scorching heat of the
summers in Sebring. So she
looked for an indoor hobby.
Since she was like her dad, a
"wanna be" artist and having
always loved paintings that
were done in watercolors, the
decision was made. She
bought a "how-to Book?" and
her new adventure began.
Anderson said, "I am self-
taught and learning. To take a
blank piece of paper and turn


it into something recogniza-
ble is very satisfying.
"Since I feel my talent is a
gift from God, I always have
Christian music playing in the
background when working on
a sketch, watercolor or plan-
ning a new painting."
Anderson does watercolors,
pen and ink, a combination of
both and some mixed media.
Two years ago she began
gourd decorating.
If you would like to see her
work visit the Cooperative in
Lake Placid.

,A ",li"d Elisa sa it unto her, What
-shall' Idb for thee.' tell me, what
has thou in the house? And she
said. Thine handmaid hath not any
L " / thing in the house, save a pot of
oil." 2 King -4:2. Ti/s is a story of
a widLow deeply in debt. She came
to Elisha for help. Her creditors
i.were prepared to take her two sons into slaver.V
payment. It is a blessing to know 'we don't have to .
{'our children for payment of our debts. Elisha told ...
to gather vessels and till them with the small amount of
oil she owned. Shi obceyed the 'ordis of the prophet,
and the oil flowed until she ran ourt of jars to pour it
into. There was more than enough oil to sell to pay the
debt, with plenty c!t money left ov rfor herself and her
children to live on.
God never asks you to give Him iltati you do not have.
Give God what you posssses and let Him multiply it
back to you. You maiy e liOe.e .fh widow with a pot of
oil, facing a debt iyou cansl r.'rpal. You may be like
Samson, holding notiirg' in your, hand but a jawbone,
watching a thousand Ph/ tldb advance. They offered'
God the little they had. 1qid'~ql turned what they had
into a miracle. Use I have and see God
multiply it back to \on.i' \we focus on what we
have and not what wiie Ai fjve. If you want to see
how blessed you ari. lok wail rthe things you have

SEBRING With one out and the bases
loaded, the winning run stood just 60 feet
away for Sebring as Sami Lower stood in the
batters box.
A rifle shot base hit to left brought Chelsea
Vickers in with the winning run and the Lady
Blue Streaks moved their record to 8-1 for
the season and 4-1 in District 10-4A.
Although maybe it wasn't quite as dramat-
ic as that description seems after all,
Vickers run was the 10th of the game and
Lower's hit was one more than the visiting
Hardee Wildcats would manage in the 10-0,
five-inning, Sebring win.
The pitching combo of Kendall Carson
and Niki Helms shut the Wildcats down,
allowing just one walk to Kristin Garcia.
With this kind of mound dominance, were

Security by 1
Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
Michelle Yates Insurance
team came from behind to
defeat the hard-luck (but
scrappy) Central Security
team by a ,core of 13-12 in
Lake Placid Senior Softball
League play on Friday at the
Lake June ball fields.
Central Security led for
almost the entire game, tak-
ing a one-run lead into the
bottom of the last inning,
only to see the powerful
Michelle Yates team score
two runs for the win.
Don Thomas was 4-for-5,
Charlie Quinn and Drew
Whittaker were 3-for-4 for
Yates Insurance (7-5). Bob
Sheets was 5-for-5 with a
triple, Bob Weis was 4-for-5
with a home run and Bob
Hensley was 4-for-5 for the 2
-11 Central Security team.
Several good plays were
made in the field on long fly
balls by Don Teague, Dana
Hurlbut and Bob Weis for
,Central Security to keep the
,game close and John Miller
made an outstanding throw
from the outfield to nail a
runner at the plate for the
Yates team.

SEBRING Chaz Abeln struck out 14 bat-
ters and had a pair of hits to match Palmetto's
offensive output to fuel Sebring High
School's 6-0 victory Friday night at Firemen's
Field that gave the Blue Streaks a 9-0 start to
the season.
The Blue Streaks scored two runs in each of
the third, fourth and fifth innings.
Nick Maloyed, a perfect 3-for-3 on the
night, opened the bottom of the third inning
with what appeared to be a triple to the gap in
right-center field, but was downgraded to a
monstrous single when he stumbled going
around first.
Abeln followed with a shot off the wall in
right-center and both runners scored when the
Tigers second baseman couldn't handle
Charlie Peck's hot shot to put Sebring up 2-0.
Peck's two RBIs were more than enough
for Abeln, who made it a long night for the
Tigers at home plate. The senior right-hander


stymied and tamed the Tigers at the plate by
walking none to go along with his bevy of
strikeouts.
Sebring head coach Hoppy Rewis was
pleased with his team's hitting and Abeln's
pitching.
"Chaz did a good job," Rewis said. "He had

a great performance. We were
a little bit worried, he had a lit-
tle bit of a tender arm
(Thursday), but he gutted it
out and got there. And we
seemed to get timely hitting
with two outs.
"We keep coming through ...
like coach (Brian) Rapp says,


we'd kind of like to do it with no outs every
once in a while, or one out, but we seem to get
it when we need it. If we keep playing good
defense and pitching, we've got a chance in
every game."
Despite the lopsided shutout, Rewis said

SFCC loses conference cat fight


By SCOTT DRESSEL
scott.dressel@newssun.com
SAVON PARK Starting conference
play in a five-run hole is .bad enough.
Getting in that position due to defensive
lapses is even worse.
A three-error second inning by the
South Florida Community College
Panthers opened the door for the'
Panthers of Palm Beach Community
College to score three unearned runs in
the second inning, which proved to be the
difference as Palm Beach took home an
8-5 win in the Southern Conference-
opener Friday night.
"We gave them three runs that second
inning and you see the difference on the


scoreboard," SFCC coach Rick Hitt said.
"We didn't have everybody show up
today. Some of the guys on our team
showed up and other
Palm Beach ones were in some other
S country somewhere
doing something else; it
wasn't baseball.
SSFCC "It really gets frustrat-
ing when you see a lot of
guys that are working
hard and show up and
grow up and do the things
it takes to be successful. Then you watch
other guys first- and second-year guys
alike that do things that you just shake
your head at.


"Our best players didn't play well
today."
Palm Beach jumped on SFCC starter
Sean Bryant for four hits and a pair of
runs in the first inning, then got three
more hits in the second to0go along with
the three SFCC miscues for a 5-0 lead.
Three nmoe hits in the top of the fifth
made it 6-0, but Bryant settled down after
that, retiring nine of the next 10 hitters he
Faced to give his offense a chance to get
back into the game.
And it almost looked like SFCC was
going to do just that. Brien Coppola dou-
bled and scored on Tyler Wright's sacri-

both pitchers necessary?
"We've got Avon Park on Tuesday," head
coach Lee Tolar said. "We just wanted to
make sure both of them would be available
and not going in there dry."
.The switch was made more
Sebring comfortable by the 7-0 lead
0 Sebring had on the board by
0 the time Helms came on to
Hardee pitch in the fourth.
One run came in the first,
as leadoff hitter Jamie
SHerskowitz reached on a
dropped third strike, was
moved to second on a sacrifice bunt from
Chastity Godfrey and came around on a sin-
gle by Priscilla Adams.
The Streaks added the touchdown to go

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

What's in


a name?

Is a name a predictor for
success, or does success
make a name take on a dif-
ferent quality?
Ever heard of a Harry
Teinowitz? Likely not,
though he is marginally suc-
cessful as a radio personality
on a sports talk show in
Chicago.
But now Harry Houdini,
now there's a name we know.
And doesn't that name just
have a ring to it?
Doesn't it seem to just
flow, to roll off the tongue?
Ever heard of Allen
Konigsberg?
Probably not, although you
likely are familiar with
Woody Allen, the name Mr.
Konigsberg decided to go
with on his rise to fame.
Cornell Haynes Jr., any-
one? You might know him
better as Nelly.
Robert James Ritchie
knew that name wasn't going
to get him anywhere, so he
became Kid Rock.
Celebrities have known for
quite some time that the right
name is a key to success.
Would Charles Bronson
have been able to pull off the
tough-guy image as Charles
Bunchinsky?
Would Bo Derek have
been a "10" as Mary
Collins?
Much the same can be
seen in athletics, where the
big stars have names that just
seem, well, star-like.
Dan Marino, Willie Mays,
Michael Jordan and Mickey
Mantle don't those names
just seem to flow, have a
ring to them?
Walter Payton, Larry Bird,
Tiger Woods (ok, his real
name is Eldrick, but he's
been Tiger for longer than
he's been in the spotlight)
and yes, as much as I hate to
say these names, I have to
include Barry Bonds and
Kobe Bryant.
You might say the accom-
plishments of these athletes
is what made the names
seem like that,'but there's no
denying they fit.
Frank Mays doesn't seem
quite right, nor does Harold
Mantle.
Larry works with Bird, but
it didn't do much for
Michael's brother, Larry
Jordan.
Barry Bryant, Kobe Bonds
I wish those names had
been switched, dooming
them to non-stardom.
Look at me, for example.
How in the world can I
expect fame with such an
unwieldly name?
Nobody ever gets the pro-
nunciation right the first few
dozen times.
And even with the correct
pronunciation, the combina-
tion just doesn't have that
flow, that zing.
Tiger Hoehne, Micky
Hoehne, Larry Hoehne. No,
none of those work.
Dan Woods, Danny
Mantle, Daniel Bird no
dice there either.
I suppose I can live with it.
But if Maria Rosario Pilar
Martinez Molina Baeza
could make it big as Charo I
should be able to come up
with something.

HISTORY LESSON

15 YEARS AGO
March 3, 1992: The Lake Placid baseball team inaugurated its new field at Roger Scarborough
Memorial Stadium with a 4-0 win over Ft. Meade. Rusty Cunningham gave up just three hits to the vis-
iting Miners, while Derek Rauleson had two RBIs and James Baker and Bobby Ellis drove in one each.
25 YEARS AGO
March 4, 1982: The Blue Streak baseball team gave defending District 9-3A champ and state run-
ner-up Lake Wales all it could handle before falling 8-3. Holding a 3-2 lead through five innings behind
two hits from Kevin Ferguson and one each from Roben Griffen and Mike Tomlinson, Sebring couldn't
answer after a four-run fifth for Lake Wales.

Bombs away

Carl Litteral and the Lake Bonnet Ringers couldn't keep
up with Sunshine RV Resort during last week's Heartland
Horseshoe Pitching League match, falling 20-12.
Buttonwood Bay beat Tanglewood 27-5 in the other
match of the week.


STREAKS
Continued from ID
the Blue Streaks were "a little
flat and tired."
After Abeln struck out the
side in order in the top of the
fourth, Sebring went back to
work on the scoreboard.
Maloyed again triggered the
rally with a single and
advanced to second on a base
hit by Abeln. Ryan Thorlton,
aboard with a fielder's
choice, stole second and
avoided the tag which
enabled Maloyed to dash
home from third to make it 3-
0. Peck added to his RBI total
with a clutch two-out blast up
the middle to drive in
Thorlton and raise the count
to 4-0.,Adam Simmons and


Colt Williams added singles
in the inning to all but end
starter Charles McCartney's
night on the mound.
Sebring came right back in
the fifth, scoring two runs off
of reliever Matt Redmond,
also a right-hander. Thorlton
added the big blast in the fifth
with two outs, driving in J.T.
Tomlinson and Maloyed.
Tomlinson had singled to set
the table and Maloyed roped a
double deep to right field.
Abeln returned in the sixth
and struck out the side in
order. If his arm was indeed
sore, there certainly was no
evidence of it as he appeared
to get stronger as the game
went on.
Certainly, the Tigers aren't
interested in seeing a healthy
Abeln.

YATES
Continued from ID
place Seminole Tire team (10-
3) to help make the game a
one-sided affair.

Brand and Andy Anderson
with five hits each, Todd
Martin, Don Cunningham,
John Ladensack and Paul
Smith with four each and Carl

Sebring league
League leader Royal Palms

for Aluminum in the Palms
lineup with Ross Anderson
hitting two doubles and five
RBIs, Bob Weiss hitting a
triple and a double and Jim
Longman and Doran Quigg
each getting a double..
Aluminum's Mike Ellis


and Les Smith scored three
and two runs, respectively,
with John Schmidt adding
three hits. The loss dropped
Discount Aluminum to a
record of 3-12, but they are
giving it the old college try.
At Lincoln Heights, Sillent
Salesman hung tight to defeat
Luby's with a close 11-9 win
after a three-run eighth inning
rally for Luby's fell only two
runs short of tying the game.
Facing one of the better
pitchers in the league in
Marvin Strope, the top
Salesman hitter was Dick
Harris with four hits. Jerry
Johnston and Charlie
Williams each punched three
hits. Silent Salesman's stand-
ing has risen to 9-6, ranking
third in the league.
The top hitter for Luby's
was Don Day, who had three
hits and scored twice. Adding
to the hitting and scoring
were Larry Ambuel, Bob
Silvia and Serge Paieta.
Luby's and the Rebels are
sharing fourth place with
records of 5-10.
Another close game was
between second-place
Miller's Central Air (11-4)
and the Rebels in Lake Placid
with a final score of 17-14.
Bob Fee had three hits includ-
ing a homer, Victor Rodriquez
managed three hits and Art

Carlson literally hobbled to
third base on his injured leg
after hitting a triple to the
fence. Faithful players never
quit, they just keep limping
along.
On Tuesday, the Silent
Salesman swept a double-
header with the Rebils, win-
ning 11-10 and 16-7.
In the two games, the
Salesman's five sluggers were

SFCC first baseman Brien Coppola dives into first base too late to get out Jose Kianes of Palm Beach in the second inning of
Friday's game.


SFCC
Continued from ID
fice fly in the bottom of the fifth
to break up the shutout, and
Nick Stanley launched a two-
run bomb of a home run to right
field in the bottom of the sixth
to cut it to 6-3.
After Nick Polston almost
made it back-to-back homers,
skying a fly ball to the warning
track in left field, Dale Slimick


and Steve Levine followed with
singles to bring the tying run to
the plate:
But that was when Palm
Beach coach Alex Morales
made the call of the night by
bringing in Ryan Hendrickson
to relieve starter John Hoelzer.
Hendrickson fanned the first
two batters he faced to get out
of the sixth, and proceeded to
strike out six of the first seven
hitters he saw to quickly


squelch any SFCC momentum.
"We had a couple selfish at
bats there late in the game," Hitt
said. "If guys do things like
they're coached to do, they're
probably in a different situa-
tion."
Jose Kianes' two-run homer
in the top of the eighth sent
SFCC into the final inning trail-
ing by five runs. That was cut to
three runs when Stanley rapped
a two-run single off hard-


throwing closer Steve Vento.
A walk brought the tying run
to the plate, but Vento struck
out the next two batters to ice
the game and leave Hitt scratch-
ing his head.
"I don't know.," he said.
"You just watch them some-
times and shake your head. It's
the age of the 18- to 20-year
olds. They're as inconsistent as
any population there is."

Vickers was erased on a
