Hospital

Wins Distinguished
Hospital Award for
third year in a row
By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING Florida
Hospital has earned the
Distinguished Hospital
Award for Clinical
Excellence for the third year
in a row.
The award, presented by
HealthGrades, is given to
hospitals ranked among the
top five percent in overall
performance.
"It's an exciting day for the
hospital and our staff, and it's
also a very proud day," John
Harding, Florida Hospital
chief executive officer and
president said. "Receiving
such a distinguished national
award is a testament to the
dedication and training of our
exceptionally good medical
staff and employees."
The hospital was also
awarded the Gastrointestinal
Care Excellence Award, the
third consecutive award for
the department. The hospi-
tal's gastrointestinal program
ranked fourth in the state
overall and fifth for medical
treatment last year. In addi-
tion, the hospital's surgery
department received
HealthGrades' General
Surgery Excellence Award,
the first such award for the
surgical staff.
Overall, the hospital
received five-star ratings for
treatment of heart failure,
heart attacks, community
acquired pneumonia, and sep-
sis.
HealthGrades evaluates
5,100 hospitals nationwide
using statistical analysis of
28 different health care cate-
gories. Hospitals must offer
services in 22 of the 28 cate-
gories to be eligible, and
1,329 hospitals qualified for
the award.

S,--25 years


with Community Redevelopment Agency


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
:When Pete
Pollard
arrived in
-ac'rfing in
1982 he had no idea he
would become the city's
first executive director for
the new Community
Redevelopment Agency.
This week, he celebrates
25 years at that post.
In 1982, Pollard had just
relocated to his native
Florida from Chicago where
he had been producing,
writing and directing indus-
trial films and commercials.
When he came to Sebring he
met Janelou Buck, who was
casting for a Highlands
Little Theatre play, and the
two began talking about the
city.
"She found out I had a bit
of experience in that area


'There's

something -

about Sebring,

if you spend

any time here,

this place

captures your

heart'

PETE POLLARD

and she introduced me to
several people including
Mary Bryant, who had been
appointed chairman of the
redevelopment agency," he
said.
Pollard and Bryant spent
an afternoon talking about
the agency, and Pollard


decided to take the job as
the executive director.
"Thei,-'o lomeihin' about
Sebring, if you speTid any'
time here, this place cap-
tures your heart," he said.
Pollard was no stranger to
the city on the Circle. His
grandfather had opened the
first butcher shop here in
1914. In 1976, his parents
moved back to the Sebring
area after retiring from the
airline industry in south
Florida.
He compared Sebring in
the early 1980s to the com-
munity of Miami Springs
where he grew up in the
1950s and '60s.
"There are three cities in
the state of Florida that have
Circles in the heart of their
downtown Sebring,
Hollywood and Miami
Springs," Pollard said.

Maxcy's goal:

kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING County
commissioner C. Guy
Maxcy isn't waiting for
state-level tax reform.
As incoming chairman
after the November 2006
elections, Maxcy saw a
need for the board to begin
budgeting sooner.
Since then,
Gov. Charlie
Crist has sug-
gested changes
that would
impact county
revenue.

.He said DeSoto and

"It's going to really, real-

Maxcy said during a phone


interview Tuesday. "Not

county can take the hit."
Nonetheless, he's chal-

Commissioner Andrew
Jackson doesn't have "nuts

in brief

City plans to market
Harder Hall
SEBRING The city
council has approved
$30,000 for marketing of
the Harder Hall property.
The money was request-
ed by City Attorney
Michael Swaine at
Tuesday's meeting. The
funds will be advanced to
Chapter 11 Trustee
Kenneth Welt, who will
use the funds to begin
advertising for the historic
hotel. Swaine said Welt is
"getting ready to market"
the property, creating the
need for the funds.
The money will come
out of the city's fund bal-
ance, which was also the
source of the $150,963 for
property taxes that the
council approved at its
Feb. 20 meeting.
Also at Tuesday's meet-
ing, the council approved a
$27,334.83 bid from
Central Florida Yamaha in
Lake Placid for a new res-
cue/patrol boat for the
city's fire and police
departments. The boat a
23-foot, 150 horsepower
Carolina Skiff boat will
be used by both depart-
ments for water rescue,
patrol, and special events.
It will be housed at the fire
station.

academic year draws to a
close high school seniors
in Avon Park continue to
raise money for Project

Ford is donating supplies
for the dinner as in years
past.
Patrons will be treated to
steak, baked potato, green
beans and a roll.
Tickets are $7.50 and
can be purchased at Bill
Jarrett Ford the day of the

Final report in on internal auditors


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.comn
SEBRING The audit of
the auditors resulted in three
recommendations, but sur-
veys revealed mixed reviews
of the Compliance and
Internal Audit Division.
Under the purview of
Highlands County Clerk of
Courts L.E. "Luke" Brooker,
the internal auditor team con-
sists of Mary Wilson and
Heather Woods supervised by
senior director of business
services Bob Jamison, the
interim chief audit executive.
"They were pretty much
what we thought they would
be," Jamison said of the sur-
vey responses.
As part of their self-assess-
ment, the auditors sent 30
questions to 12 department
heads involved in the recent
cash-handling and library
audits.
The auditees were allowed
to respond anonymously to
*promote honest assessments,
Wilson said.

Dinner will

help young

ambassador

News-Sun staff reports
AVON PARK -A fund-
raiser event to benefit an
Avon Park High School
freshman is set for Paul's
Harbour Side Restaurant at
2451 U.S. 27 S, from 5-7
p.m. Monday.
Chelsea Crawford, 14, has
been selected to be an
American Ambassador in the
People to People program,
which was instituted by
President Dwight
Eisenhower. This affords her
an opportunity to travel to
Australia and New Zealand
this June, representing the
United States.
Chelsea is one of only 20
students from Centeral
Florida chosen for this honor,
out of 180 who applied.
The opportunity came as a
surprise to her, because she
was nominated by a teacher
without her knowledge.
Chelsea said she is only the
second student chosen from
Highlands County in the 50
years the program has been in
existence, and the first
female.
The trip, however, will cost
$6,500, and she and her fami-
ly are hoping for community
assistance.
The dinner Monday night,
which will offer musical
entertainment by Mickey
Lukens, is one fund raising
event. Tickets cost $25.
A choice of entrees will be
available (grouper, baked
chicken or sirloin steak), and
the dinner comes with soup,
salad, beverage and dessert.
Call 1(863)257-4246 for
more information, or go to
www.fundchelsea.com.


Brooker's internal audit
team must submit to periodic
audits in order to wear the
badge of compliance with
Institute of Internal Auditors
standards.
His audit division has
undergone two such audits
since its inception. The first
was conducted externally by
NCT Group.
The most recent audit was a
self-evaluation with an inde-
pendent validator, a method
acceptable by the institute and
chosen for its cost efficiency.
Wilson spent six weeks -
among several months -
preparing for the self-evalua-
tion, Woods spent 80 hours
and Jamison about 40.
"Other matters that might
have been covered in a full
independent assessment ...
were excluded from the scope
of this independent valida-
tion," Steve Hooper, of the
Hillsborough Clerk of Courts
County Audit Department,
said in his statement attached
to the report.
Jamison said Hooper's
canned statement was from
the IIA's tools for self-assess-
ments. Hooper didn't return
messages left on his work
voice mail.
The exclusions are neces-
sary for smaller shops,
Jamison said, citing the
expense of a full audit.
The county taxpayers paid
about $580 for the self-evalu-


cooperative audit.
The cash-handling process
was considered medium risk
but high priority and was sev-
enth on a list of 26 audit enti-
ties according to a risk sum-
mary updated in August 2003.

Low priority and low risk,


the planned Heartland Library
Cooperative audit was 16th.
"We probably never would
have gotten to the library sys-
tem," Jamison said, explain-
ing discrepancies in cash han-
dling resulted in a separate,
immediate audit that took
about 18 months.


ation with independent vali-
dation. The same process by a
private firm or by the Institute
of Internal Auditors could
have topped $16,000.
Jamison said a full audit
would have ranged from
$25,000 to $40,000.
"We all realize that as a
practical matter it didn't make
sense to get an in-depth analy-
sis of these other things," he
said. "Self-assessment with
an independent validation,
which is what we chose,
ensures compliance with all
the standards and ethics of
IIA." .,, .. ,
The report's recommenda-
tions are to "right-size" staff
for faster completion of
audits; spell out the minimum
training requirements and
establish a method to docu-
ment the monitoring of the
effectiveness and quality of
the program.
Jamison previously said he
needs additional staff to round
out his audit team. Woods
went to a 25-hour, part-time
schedule in January.
Wilson and Woods, certi-
fied by IIA, must accrue about
40 continuing education cred-
its annually. The minimum
requirement for uncertified
staff will be 20 hours.
The self-assessment audit
entailed a specific methodolo-
gy that included reviewing the
cash-handling audit, which
resulted in the library and

Survey says: Auditors score 2.4


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.corn
SEBRING The internal
auditors surveyed 12 people
for their self-assessment.
, Si.- department heads
responded three surveys
were signed and three were
anonymous.
They were sent to Anne
Roberts, director of account-
ing for Highlands County
Clerk of Courts L.E. "Luke"
Brooker and Dawn Simpson,
director of payables and
receivables for Brooker.
And, they were sent to the
following county staff direc-
tors or supervisors Pat
Pablo, S.Y. Mosley, Ramon
Gavarrete, Gary Mikulucky,
Kevin Roberts, Vicki Pontius,
Jim Polatty, Gerald Secory,
Bruce Van Jaarsveld, and
Gary Lower.
The survey asked them to
rate the audit team using a
four-point scale 4 being
excellent and 1 being poor. Of
the 30 questions, the last four
were open-ended.


The highest ratings came
from Roberts and Simpson,
who are employed by Brooker
and report to Jamison. They
rated the auditors 3.8 and 3.4,
respectively.,
Mid-range scores came
from unsigned surveys, both
with a score of 2.3. The low-
est scores, 1.4 and 1.7, came
from Secory and an anony-
mous respondent, respective-
ly.
"I have done numerous
audits throughout my career,"
Secory, director of purchasing
and general services, said in
his response.
An anonymous comment
said the team was unprofes-
sional, the process turned into
a media "feeding frenzee"
(sic) and there was an attitude
of "guilty, unless proven oth-
erwise." Another person said
his or her department benefit-
ted from the cash handling
audit, but called for more
meetings.
The overall average of the
six surveys was 2.48.

POLLARD
Continued from 1A
In addition to the feeling
of familiarity, Pollard had
been drawn to the city by the
people he met. He said it
seemed to be a good place to
raise his children.
That being said, in 1982
there was a lot of work that
needed to be done.
"The downtown area had
deteriorated badly. Our first
inventory of available space
showed there was a 65 per-
cent vacancy rate of both
ground floor and second-
story space," Pollard said.
He described the Circle as
a jungle, relating the story of
one downtown merchant who
purportedly carried a pistol
when he opened his store
during the early morning
hours because he was not
certain who might have been
sleeping in the park.
One of the first projects
Pollard undertook was to res-
cue and remount the historic
light poles that came as part
of the CRA's first streetscape
project. Pollard was looking
at purchasing replica lights
but citizens kept telling him
there still were some of the
originals around. The prob-
lem was, nobody seemed to
know exactly where they
were.
"One day I was sitting in
the office and I got a call
from the public works depart-
ment. Some of their guys had
been out at the landfill dig-
ging a hole and they said 'I
think we found some of your
light poles,""he said.
It tuned out what they had
found were nine of the 12
original poles that furnished
the first electric lights in the
city. Bryant, not to be denied,
went out to the dump with
Pollard to have a look
around.
"She said 'Where there's
smoke there's fire. Let's keep
looking around,' and we
spent the entire afternoon out
there basically working our
way through the dump," he
sa.dr
It w as when they got to the
back of the dump they found
two overgrown mounds of
vegetation, which turned out
to be 62 more of the cast iron
lights that had been piled up
and left. They were salvaged
and now stand on the spoke
streets from the Circle park
out to Wall Street.
In an effort to save money,
sponsors were found to refur-
bish the poles.
"That also raised aware-
ness and got people involved
in the process. If you con-
tributed $400, we put a
plaque on it them," Pollard
said.
Over the first few years
Pollard was here, he said the
ebb and flow of businesses in

A total of 266 hospitals
around the country received
the Clinical Excellence
Award this year. However,
only 135 hospitals have
matched Florida Hospital's
achievement of being recog-
nized three straight years.
North complimented
Florida Hospital on its inno-
vation in the area of electron-
ic record-keeping, and said
there was a direct link
between electronic records
and health care quality. He
added that "virtually all" of
the five-star hospitals have
invested in electronic record-
keeping systems like the
iConnect system being used
at Florida Hospital.
Patients have a 69 percent
lower chance of dying in hos-
pitals that receive the clinical


excellence awards, North
said.
HealthGrades uses patient
discharge records to make
their evaluations, then use
statistical analysis to rank,
adjust, and compare similar
hospitals.
North said HealthGrades
has been impressed by the
continuing dedication of the
Florida Hospital staff.
"We're watching," North
said, "and we're liking what
we're seeing."


the downtown area was on a
three-year cycle, with spikes
in occupancy and vacancy
coming at three-year inter-
vals. However, that seems to
have settled down with a
much longer space between
business turnover and a trend
now toward art shops in the
downtown area.
Even the one sore spot, the
Nancessowee Hotel, which is
up for sale, is being
improved on the outside.
That is balanced off by the
Hainz Building across the
street, which has been reno-


vated both inside and out.
"Sam Corson has done a
wonderful job with that
building which was built
about the same time with the
same materials and he's fill-
ing up that space quickly,"
Pollard said.
Currently, businesses are
trending toward a more art
and artist-type clientele.
"That is coming from the
art league and some of the
already established business-
es. It seems to be working
too, if you look at the crowds
that come downtown on the

"Not only will that provide
improvements for the

Supervisor of the Sebring Social Security Office Louis Ortiz,
himself a 13-year Army veteran and a 28-year Social
Security employee, was presented an Army 'Mug Mat' and
thanked by Military Officers Association of America chapter
board member retired Army Nurse Lieutenant Colonel
Mabel Langland, Sebring.


Ortiz explains recent


Social Security changes


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Louis Ortiz,
supervisor of the Sebring
Social Security Office, was
the guest briefer at the month-
ly meeting of the Military
Officers Association of
America chapter's Executive
Committee Saturday at the
Candlelight Restaurant of the
Sebring Sun 'N Lake Golf
and Country Club.
Ortiz had been asked to
speak on a recent Social
Security announcement that
under certain circumstances,
special earnings in the mili-
tary between 1940 and 2001
can be credited to their record
for Social Security purposes.
Not only did he explain this
particular ruling, he also
talked with some of the 50
military veterans who were in
attendance on a one-to-one
basis following his formal
briefing to the group.
"We had asked the local
Social Security officials for
clarification on a recent news
release concerning this ruling
.. s well as other information
affecting our military retiree


and veteran population in our
area," retired Air Force
Colonel Roy P. Whitton,
MOAA chapter president
said.
MOAA had tendered invi-
tations to all military retirees
regardless of rank to the
Saturday morning Social
Security briefing.
Ortiz's presentation prima-
rily addressed the recent
announcement that under cer-
tain conditions military
retirees could have their
Social Security account read-
justed. For example, those
veterans who served as active
duty during the period of
1940 to 1956 might have
$160 per month credited in
earnings for military service.
However, Ortiz cautioned that
the service had to be honor-
able and that there were other
criteria involved.

Okeechobee's falling levels prompt action


Special to the News-Sun
WEST PALM BEACH -
As drought conditions persist
around Lake Okeechobee,
South Florida Water
Management District engi-
neers are fitting three existing
water control structures to
enable installation of 14 sub-
merged temporary forward
pumps, four or six at each
structure.
The pumps will be used to
draw water out of the lake for
water supply needs should
levels fall below 10.2 feet. If
the lake drops to this level, it
becomes difficult to deliver
water to downstream users
because gravity can no longer
effectively deliver enough
water through existing control
structures.
The three installation sites
are at water control structures
S-351, S-352 and S-354, all in
Palm Beach County along the
southern rim of Lake
Okeechobee.
With the level at 11.10 feet,
Lake Okeechobee is approxi-
mately four feet below its his-
torical average for this time of
year and continues to recede
because of below-average
rainfall. District-wide, 2006
was the sixth driest on record.
Only 1.94 inches of rain fell
in January and February less
than half of what is normal for
this time of year.
"As we move into March
and April typically the two
driest months of the year with
thehighest demands we are
proactively putting these
pumps in place to lessen pos-
sible impacts on the area's
agricultural industry if the
drought worsens," SFWMD
Executive Director Carol Ann
Wehle said.
The 14-foot long electric
forward pumps can lift water
from the lake into existing

so that it can be utilized for
water supply. Each tempo-
rary pump is capable of mov-
ing 100 cubic feet of water
per second that's the equiv-
alent of 748 gallons of water
per second or enough to fill
more than 4,300 residential
swimming pools per day. The
temporary forward pumps
will also serve as a pilot for
permanent forward pumps,
which are now in the early
conceptual design phase,
planned around the lake under
the multi-agency Lake
Okeechobee & Estuary
Recovery Plan.
"We commend Lake
Okeechobee area residents,
business and the agricultural
community for doing their
part by cutting back on water
use over the past few months
and helping us weather this
drought together," Wehle
said.
A water shortage order with
Phase I (15 percent cutbacks)
water restrictions remains in
effect in the Lake Okeechobee
Service Area, which compris-
es the Everglades Agricultural
Area, and portions of Hendry,
Glades, Lee, Okeechobee,
Palm Beach and Martin coun-
ties. The SFWMD is consid-
ering moving into Phase II
(30 percent cutbacks) restric-
tions when lake levels decline
to 11 feet.

Service Area, which compris-
es Monroe, Miami-Dade,
Broward and eastern Palm
Beach Counties, currently is

lake levels because localized
rainfall has kept water supply
levels more favorable in this
region. However, because the
lake serves as the region's pri-
mary backup supply, a formal
water shortage warning
remains in place for the lower
east coast. Though no manda-
tory water restrictions have
been issued as part of this
warning, the district is
encouraging both residential
and agricultural water users
here to voluntarily reduce
their water consumption as a
preemptive measure to avoid
or forestall potential water
shortage orders and mandato-
ry water restrictions during
the remaining dry season.

area residents are encouraged

Heacock leaving downtown for U.S. 27


By MATT MURPHY
nmatt.inurphhy@niewssuln.com
SEBRING Heacock Insurance, a
fixture in Sqbring since 1922, will be
moving out of downtown and into a
new facility on U.S. 27.
The company's decision to move
away from downtown Sebring. and
the South Ridgewood Drive office
that has housed the company since
1960, was not an easy one.
"We love downtown," Heacock
Financial Group President Craig
Johnson said. "This wasn't a deci-
sion we made lightly. It was a deci-
sion motivated by the fact we need
more room than we have now."
The new building, at 1105 U.S. 27
South, will be a three-story, brick-
and-glass structure with 21,000


square feet of total space. Heacock
will use two-thirds of the building to
house its 41 Sebring employees. The
company will then rent out the
remaining third of the building to an
outside group.
The three divisions under the
Heacock umbrella Insurance,
Financial, and Employer Solutions -
will be working together at the new
building. Demolition has already
begun at the site, and groundbreak-
ing on the new building is scheduled
for March 27. Construction will take
around nine months, Johnson said.
Heacock started looking for addi-
tional space two years ago, Johnson
said; and the U.S. 27 site was pur-
chased about a year ago. The search
for a new place of business was nec-


essary because the company simply
ran out of space.
Heacock's original goal was to
simply add another office at U.S. 27,
Johnson said. However, the compa-
ny discovered that putting a large
distance between different sections
of the company would have present-
ed logistical and technological prob-
lems. Putting the entire company
together in one place also turned out
to be an idea Heacock's leaders
couldn't resist.
"We decided to get all our
employees under one roof in one
location. We've never had all three
(groups) in one office."
In the end, Johnson says, the deci-
sion to move out of downtown
Sebring was difficult but necessary

from business standpoint.
"The bottom line is, the move
makes financial sense," Johnson


said. "We think downtown Sebring
is a great place, but U.S. 27 exposure
is a good thing."


MAXCY
Continued from 1D
ness says you wait and see
what your needs are."
Noting that construction
has slowed from the fervor of
the past few years, Bates
doesn't anticipate a down-
swing in property valuations
for several years due to inher-
ent lags in the process.
Savings, he said, will come
through efficiency. He said
his constituents have been
"aghast" at the recent
approval of $39 million in
capital improvements.
"We have to be very con-
cerned about how we expand
county government," Bates
said referencing staffing lev-
els. "I'd like to see us hold the
line for two to three years."
Stewart has and continues
to call for the evaluation and
possible elimination of county
services.
She recommends that coun-
ty staff and the board deter-
mine the value of each service
provided, then determine
whether the county should
provide it all.
"It's easy to say we're
going to cut back on taxing
but the hard part will be, stick-
inig. ;L,, it,"',~,Stew,~ s.ayd.,,,
"There will be some very hard


decisions that we will need to
make."
Her short list includes guid-
ing space management, prior-
itizing funding to county
departments and non-county
agencies that seek money
from the' board, examining
board policies of taking coun-
ty vehicles home and the four-
day work week, implementing
a work study program with
colleges, contracting out serv-
ices, and taking a "hard" look
at wants versus needs.
"A lot of it is justifying
why we need something,"
Stewart said. "I'm hopeful
that the action steps the staff
is putting together will help
us."
She said seemingly
insignificant cost reductions
add up to big savings. She
credited county staff with pro-
ducing "excellent" ideas to
streamline.
"That's something we need
to look at every year," Stokes
said. "How to make govern-
ment better."
He said the county's past
efforts at efficiency are evi-
dent in computers that
replaced filing cabinets and
stacks of paper.
And, the proposed asphalt
plant that would take advan-
tage.,of 1~dfil l~/.ssgs,;now..
being wasted would be ., step


toward savings in money and
time, Stokes said.
His favorite challenge from
Maxcy is lowering the mill-
age rate.
"Last year when we
dropped the millage, that
mostly helped people with
homestead exemption,"
Stokes said. "We need to look
really hard on helping more
people. I think we should
have dropped it more last
year, but that's one of those
things you go at slowly."
He said the board should
review proposed 'budgets
using different rates 8 mils,
7.5 mils and 7 mils and
budget accordingly.
"I'm not for capping spend-
ing," Stokes said. "That's
telling me I don't know how
to spend."
The reduction last year
from 9 to 8.5 mils didn't pro-
vide much relief, Bates said,
suggesting' it would take a
reduction to 6 mils for most
residents to realize a "dis-
cernible" savings.
Jackson said property own-
ers expect lower ad valorem
taxes. Despite last year's
decrease, the county collected
more in taxes, he said.
Keeping in mind that
changes brewing at the state
level will: impact .Highlands
County,;, Jackson, ,,C- who


served on the board in 1970
before resigning to run for the
state Senate said local gov-
ernment has changed "night
and day" in the past 30 years.
"The government was
much smaller and not nearly
as complicated," he said.
In addition to increased real
estate values, rising insurance
rates add to the strain.
Maxcy said it's possible to
lower property taxes to allevi-
ate some of the hardship.
"We need to'hear from staff


how that is going to affect
us," he said.
The board approved the
county's 10-year capital
financial strategy Tuesday
and has several space-need
surveys in progress for county
and other constitutional
offices.
At the end of the commis-
sion meeting, Maxcy called
on the board to return March
20 with their ideas.
"The property tax system
has been without much fault,"


Maxcy said in his memo.
"But, recent events, especial-
ly real estate values in
Florida, have pushed this sys-
tem to the brink of unfair-
ness."
He said equity would only
result via a "tremendous" tax-
reform measure brought by
the Florida Association of
Counties to the state legisla-
ture.
"This will not happen, if it
happens at all, until March,"
Maxcy said.

Maserati's win highlight of 1957 12 Hours


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
I n 1957, the 12 Hours of
Sebring really had
begun to come into its
own. Then-Florida gov-
ernor LeRoy Collins declared
March 18-23 as Florida
International Sports Car Race
Week, to be climaxed with
the Florida International 12-
Hour Grand Prix of
Endurance for Amoco.
Track improve-
ments were
the order
of the day.
The
Highlands
County News
reported that
new
bleachers had
been built, fences --
were strung, there
were telephone and
power lines brought
in and re-routed and
American Oil, the
sponsor for the second year
in a row and the official fuel
for the Race, was installing
gas pumps and digging holes
for the placement of under-
ground fuel tanks.
The Sebring Hospitality
Committee reported that even
with local residents offering
to rent out spare rooms, there
still were more requests than
lodgings.
Although there was still
plenty of general admission


parking, the practice of
reserved parking spaces was
introduced that year, with
Ford Heacock taking care of
advanced sale tickets from
his office on The Circle.
The Sebring High School
seniors again showed movies
of the Races. They included
the 1954, '55, and '56 12
Hours, along with films of
LeMans and other
sports car races.
The presentation
again was in the
school's audito-
rium, the price
Sa.s 25-cents,


able at the
door.
Even
the ,
merchants got
involved, closing up
shop at noon on Saturday for
employees who wanted to go
to the races. Stores stayed
open Wednesday afternoon
and late Friday night as well
to help make up for the
missed hours. The Hotel
Sebring coffee shop was open
24 hours, and the Highlands
County News was packed
with merchants' ads welcom-
ing race fans and offering
race week specials.
A parade had been planned
for the todro .fifo, ri area, but
the processional was called


off by Mayor J.D. Hunt and
Community Committee
Chairman Don Hansen, due
to the traffic of fans arriving
for the Race.
There was more prize
money offered that year as
well $3,000 each for the
overall winners and the index
of performance winners, plus
the overall winners would be
presented with the silver
Amoco trophy, which was
valued at $5,000. The prize
for second place in overall
and index of performance
was set at $1,500, with $500
allocated to third place in
each category.
Well-known CBS radio and
telecaster Walter Cronkite
was scheduled to do four 15-
minute broadcasts during the
Race, while Bill Sweet han-
dled the microphone for
NBC's Monitor radio show.
He was joined by radio
reports around the world on
the Voice of America, plus
journalists from Associated
Press, United Press
International, Reuters, and
the Australian Associated
Press.
Meanwhile, the sports car
world was abuzz that former
Sebring.winner Juan Manuel
Fangio had moved over to the
Maserati squad and there was
an all-woman team entered in
the Race as Gilbert Thirion,
Belgium's champion woman
driver, entered her Renault


Photos from Sebring: The Utticial History by Ken Breslauer
The arrival of Maserati (above) was the big story prior to the
1957 12 Hours of Sebring, and the win by Juan Manuel
Fangio (left photo, on left) and Jean Behra was the big story
at the end.


Dauphin, joined at the wheel
by Nadge Ferrier of
Switzerland.
Practices were held for two
days, with a great deal of
interest paid to the principal
car makers Maserati,
Jaguar, and Ferrari. It was the
defending champ Fangio who
turned the quickest lap at
3:25.8 in his new 4.5 litre
Maserati.
According to newspaper
reports, Ford Heacock esti-
mated that 25,000 people
turned out for the 7th annual
running of the Florida Grand
Prix, although later estimates
range as high as 35,000. It
was a hot and sunny day as
the countdown began for the
mad dash of drivers to cars in
the LeMans start.
It was in 1957 that the
race recorded its first on
track fatality as 33-year-old


Bob Goldich lost control of
his Arnolt-Bristol in the
esses. The car hit the sand
barrier, then flipped twice.
Goldich, a father of two, was
pronounced dead on arrival at
the Weems Hospital in
Sebring.
The rest of the Arnolt
team immediately withdrew.
It would be the first and
only win ever for Maseiati at
the 12 Hours as Fangio, the
1956 winner, and Jean Behra
took the checkered flag at
exactly 10 p.m.
In the winner's circle,
Behra literally fell into
Fangio's arms and the two
champions reportedly could
not stop congratulating each
other amidst the bursts of the
photographer," flaMhbiuils
Which is h' A.itill I,.lp-
pens at the cnd-bf'iic '2
Hours to this day.

News-Sun I
Serving Highlands County since 1927

Pearce a worthwhile

project, not for county

By voting 3-2 to seek more information about
accepting Pearce Homestead from South Florida
Water Management District, the county commission
signaled it's intent Tuesday.
That signal should be a red flag to the taxpayer.
Despite commissioner Andrew Jackson's assertion
that he favors privatizing government functions, he
said recently that accepting the property in rural
Highlands County off of U.S. 98 is a "worthwhile
project."
Despite previous misgivings about Pearce
Homestead's ability to be self-sustaining, commis-
sioner Edgar Stokes signed a petition supporting the
county's acquisition of the homestead and proffered
the motion for more information.
Chairman C. Guy Maxcy seemed to cite the softball
complex as an example of how well the county man-
ages your tax dollars, noting that the $150,000 sought
by Dr. Catherine Cornelius pales in comparison.
"If we put $4.3 million into a softball park ... we
can certainly put in $150,000 for this," Maxcy said.
Barbara Stewart and Don Bates oppose county
ownership, saying the Pearce Homestead should be a
regional project.
One resident spoke out against the homestead and
another threw caution to the wind regarding liability.
But, it was Anne Reynolds who unwittingly sug-
gested the best possible solution.
"I don't know when we got to the point that spend-
ing taxpayer money got to be such a terrible thing,"
Reynolds said.
Reynolds would be happy to have her taxes spent
on the homestead. Reynolds is a member of the com-
mission asking the county to accept the land.
Using tax dollars isn't terrible when they're pru-
dently spent on essential government services such as
law enforcement, courts, roads and a select few other
areas.
We call on Reynolds to follow Cornelius' lead -
make a personal donation toward the capital required
to get this project off the ground.
- Cornelius, on Feb. 13, committed $5,000 of her
own money.
If support for the project exists as Cornelius claims,
it should be no problem for the soon-to-be Friends of
Pearce to privately raise the $150,000.
If they don't raise the money, it would send a clear
message about perceived support for the park.
Cornelius projected the heritage park would be self-
sustaining in five years. This is optimistic, and the
News-Sun suggests that all involved brace themselves
for cost overruns.
However, if the numbers are sound and not guesti-
mates, why can't the Friends take its business plan to
a bank and secure financing?
That's alternate plan No. 1 formalize Friends of
Pearce as a non-profit and petition South Florida
Water Management with the same deal it is attempt-
ing to strike with the county.
Alternate plan No. 2 draws on Jackson's suggestion
that the figures be reworked so that the county invests
$0 instead of $150,000 (Friends would get that from
donations, the seed money or a combination).
This would mean the county acquires the estate,
which we oppose. It's a compromise that would les-
son the Highlands County tax burden (though state
taxes would still be at play) from -what's currently
suggested.
Maxcy called for safeguards and we hope they
would be adequate.
Alternate plan No. 3 is the least desirable. It would
allow the county to loan the $150,000 to Friends,
which would begin repayment in five years when
Pearce would become self-sustaining as promised by
Cornelius.
Those are the three options that weren't discussed
at length by the board the last two times it visited this
issue.
Whatever happens, the News-Sun hopes the pro-
posed Pearce Homestead Hertiage Park doesn't
become a money pit and proves viable.
Wise decisions, however, aren't grounded in wish-
ful thinking.

Celebrity sightings or are they


I saw the most startling
thing ever.
I thought I saw Paul
Newman at McDonald's.
It was one of those "wait a
moment" moments when I
was trying to figure out why
this drop-dead gorgeous hunk
with the kindest face looked
so familiar. Then it struck me
as I was headed from the
McDonald's south in Sebring
to Walgreen's that man
could have been Paul
Newman.
My only recent picture of
him is on one of his salad
dressing bottles. That's why I
asked myself, "Could that
really have been him?"
My mom and I went to
breakfast, and we were gnaw-
ing on our sausage biscuits
and sipping our hot coffee.
My heart went aflutter when I
spied him. He and his much
younger female companion
walked ahead and sat diago-
nally across from us in the
front portion of the restaurant.
Before I knew it, I was
flirting with this handsome,
distinguished man with steel,
salt-and-pepper gray hair and
a firm jaw line and some sort
of T-shirt related to motor
sports. I then glanced down-
ward as I was stirring the
half-and-half into my moth-
er's coffee. I could feel his
gaze upon me. I felt so flus-
tered that I started drinking
my mom's coffee instead of


mine.
Could Paul
Newman actually
have been flirting
with me? Be still my
heart!
Now I'm a realist
just as much as the
next person and the
probabilities are slim
to none of that hap-
pening. However, just
think of it Mickey

Park McDonald's and snacks

out in the salad dressing and

different grocery stores in the
county. That ought to do it.

mined I will always carry my
camera and notepad with me.
I know he's not too keen on
giving interviews, but what
the hey? What can I lose? All
he can do is to tell me to get
lost.
So, Paul Newman, wherev-
er you are, would you do me a
favor and call me at the News-
Sun and leave a message? We
could make beautiful music
together. Perhaps you could
also give me a spin or two
around the race track.
I just want to gaze into
those eyes and smile shyly
one last time.

Letters


Appears facts

were withheld
Editor:
Thank you county commis-
sioners for examining the
issues at the Highlands
County Board of County
Commission meeting of Feb.
27.
After watching the discus-
sion by the county commis-
sion and the presentation by
Dr. Catherine Cornelius, I
want to state a few additional
concerns.
While there is no doubt
that the merit for a shrine to
Edna Lockett is laudable, it
remains unclear why the proj-
ect could not go forward
without ownership by
Highlands County. The
(Southwest Florida) Water
(Management) District is
under court order to maintain
the status quo, so there is


absolutely no threat that some
developer could come along
and build there. Furthermore,
the commission controls land
use, so no one can threaten
the estate with unwanted real
estate projects.
The water district has
appeared to have been less
than forthcoming about the
court order restricting use of
the land. At previous meet-
ings 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 property,
whether buyer or gift recipi-
ent, must adhere to clear
restrictions on future use,
including mandated access by
the public.
If the Homestead Park
project fails, for whatever
reasons, it is likely that the


taxpayers of Highlands
County would be stuck with a
piece of property that would
be difficult to sell, and the
property would not be valued
at a premium, due to the use
restrictions.
The proponents of the
property acquisition would
better 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 favor historic preserva-
tion. I favor funding projects
that benefit the residents of
Highlands County. I question
why the taxpayers of
Highlands County should
own the Lockett Estate
Homestead Park now that it is
clear that the estate is not
threatened by commercial
development, as some would
have had us believe, a few


months ago. The water dis-
trict owns the estate and must
preserve the use as directed
by a court order. There is no
urgency in spending taxpay-
ers monies to "save" this his-
torical monument.

40-year sentence does not fit this teen's crime


It has taken me almost a
year and a half to write this
letter. I was afraid my mes-
sage might be interpreted as
soft on crime and all the vic-
tims of crime would then
assassinate the messenger.
It is my intent to start a real
dialogue about juvenile
felony crimes and how to
help the perpetrators without
leaving the public at risk for
repeat offenses. Sadly, like
most people, it had to get per-
sonal to my own life for me
to get concerned. I am the
convicted felon's maternal
grandma.
Robert, now age 21, lives
in maximum security at
Hardee Correctional Facility,
sentenced to 40 years for rob-
bery with a deadly weapon.
The Internet says "deadly
weapon/gun." However, it
should read "deadly
weapon/bat." He also sports a
tattoo on his neck with his
mom's name in the middle
and his former girlfriend's
initials on either side. If he
spent the night at your house
tonight, I doubt any of his
former teachers or acquain-
tances would say you had
anything to fear.
He created his long rap
sheet in just three or four
months doing three crimes at
age 16.
First was burglary of a
dwelling with petty theft. It
was Robert and two more
boys while the next door
neighbor was gone. They
were 20 feet from home and
were caught before they got
to first base.
Next was burglary of an
occupied dwelling with crim-
inal mischief. Once again it


was a neighbor and they
believed she wasn't home.
This time it was Robert and
one more boy. The nice lady,
now deceased, asked us not to
whip him. This time they
were 40-50 feet from home
and got to second base.
They made it home and
because a dog was called in
to track them, they made the
front page of the paper. Their
footprints were visible to the
door, but I appreciate dogs
need practice.
I'm just pointing out these
boys were not hard to find
either time, and Robert was
told to tell the truth and he
did immediately. It was dur-
ing this time that Robert's
mom, a nurse, had a horrific
car accident leaving her with
multiple injuries, which
required being transported to
a trauma unit in Orlando.
It was also during that time
it became obvious that Robert
had substance abuse prob-
lems and that was only two of
the family's challenges.
Excuses, excuses. ...
It was decided that Robert
be sent to a juvenile facility,
but before that could be han-
dled in a timely fashion,
crime number three took
place.
Three boys, broad daylight,
one victim, robbery ($120)
and an innocent man hit once
with a bat leaving him with a
laceration that did not require
hospital attention. Thank you,
God. Again Robert told the
truth and entered the juvenile
facility. This time he was
charged as an adult. He knew
that when he left the juvenile
facility he would serve two
years house arrest, followed


by eight years proba-
tion, and 150 hours
of community serv-
ice.
After a year near


Orlando, he was drug free,
17, and had his GED. He
received a wonderful letter of
praise from his place of incar-
ceration.
Over the next two years
Robert made various attempts
at living somewhat normal.
He began doing his commu-
nity service at a nearby vol-
unteer fire department so he
could walk or bicycle there,
but was forced to stop
because the department was-
n't on the Department of
Corrections' list of approved
community service sites.
Those 50 hours were not
credited to him. The officer in
charge of checking up on him
thought he should have a job,
but not even McDonald's
would hire him. His paternal
grandma and I hired him as
often as we could afford -
usually once a week. His
choices were limited due to
age, experience and training
- more excuses, eh?
SHe took a college course,
but funds and transportation
were limited, so I guess I'm
saying he didn't do much in
those two years, but commit-
ted no new crimes. So now
he's been almost three years
crime free.
During that time Robert's
grandpa on his dad's side
died, my husband died, and
Robert's mom nearly died
from another medical prob-
lem, only a year after her car
accident. Robert's dad has
sight and hearing handicaps,
and turned further to his


habits to cover the
pain of life and his
inability to help his
son. Excuses, excuses


August 2005 would have
seen him free of house arrest
and on probation, but on
Memorial Day of that year his
mind told him it would be OK
to ride to town with a girl to
buy cigarettes and, of course,
the officer in,charge was out
doing head counts and he
wasn't at home. I know you
can't believe he would be that
foolish; we couldn't either,
but he was! Keep remember-
ing his age. Several days to a
week later he allowed me to
drive him to the Highlands
County Jail to turn himself in
- a move he and I both
regret, but for different rea-
sons.
Now, the rest of the story.
On Sept. 27, 2005, Robert
pled to the mercy of the court
concerning his technical vio-
lation. The officer in charge
of head count came to speak
on his behalf (something not
usually done) and to make her
recommendation. To allow
her testimony, and whatever
help it might be, we advised
Robert to turn down the
eight-year plea deal so that
the judge could make the
choice of the plea deal or Ms.
M's. recommendation, or
something of his own cre-
ation. I know you didn't read
this in any paper that week
because the news media was
busy following three boys
who came to Highlands
County from another county
to rob a bank.
So on that day, without
protest, Judge "Shinholser


dropped his deadly gavel and
sentenced a 19-year-old to 40
years in a maximum security
prison and allowed that he
would have given him life if
Ms. M. wasn't there. That was
his right and maybe you think
his responsibility.
Sixteen-year-olds are not
adults and so it is not hard to
catch them when they commit
crime. Can you prove to me
that if we keep giving out life
sentences to minors that it is a
deterrent to crime and our
streets are safer. I, and,I hope
others, would like to see 40-
year sentences saved for
rapists, murderers, and child
molesters/abusers. If you
agree, please speak out!

An unforgettable
Rocky Mountain trip
My best friend and I
took a week-long driving
trip through Colorado and
New Mexico in her brand
new car.
Our first night out, in
Nebraska, we hit a hail
storm. Thinking to protect
the finish of the car, we
slung our sleeping bags
over the body of the car
and waited out the worst of
it in a motel parking lot.
There are no overpasses to
get under in Nebraska, in
case anyone asks. We
finally found a motel room
hours later and slept late
the first morning. Of
course, the sleeping bags
had not dried in the motel
shower overnight.
That night, we made it
to a campground at the
foot of Pike's Peak
(www.pikespeakcolorado.c
om/). The owner guided us
to one campsite, then told
us it was reserved and we
needed to move to another.
As we were moving the
car to the new site, a doe
ambled through the first
spot, and we got to remem-
ber why we were taking
this wonderful trip
(www.pikespeakcam.com).
I had borrowed our
camping equipment from a
friend, so while BJ tried to
set up the tent, I thought
I'd start supper. That's
when I discovered-that I
had gotten the stove, ice-
box and utensils, but noth-
ing in which to cook the
food on the camp stove.
About the same time, BJ
was beyond frustrated with
the tent poles that wouldn't
go together correctly. We
decided we should find
something to eat, then try
putting the tent up when
we were calmer. Did I
mention we're both red-
heads?
As we were driving
away, I started to say,
"There's gotta be a way..."
and BJ interrupted me
with, "That's it! You've
got it!" Not knowing what
I had, I gently questioned
her what she meant.
Somehow in my statement,
(hah!) she had picturedthe
way the tent poles should
go together. After eating a
forgettable meal, we
returned to the camp-
ground and hastened to put
the tent up before darkness
fell (www.cograilway.
corn). We did have a
lantern and a catalytic
heater I learned to light
while on the trip. The
sleeping bags still weren't
dry yet.
Because we both had
already been to the Garden
of the Gods (gosw.about.
com/od/coloradosprings-
colorado/ss/colspringspho-
to.htm), we decided to
journey onward without
stopping. We went to
Royal Gorge (gocalifor
nia.about.com/cs/photosl/l
/bl_cocsp_rgb.htm) and
reminisced about my first
trip there. My father
tricked me into walking on
the Bridge to the Ohio
flag. That would have been
alright if the flag hadn't
been smack dab in the
middle of the world's high-
est suspension bridge.
Each of the wooden planks
tilted as the cars drove
over them, and I could see
1,053 feet straight down to
the river. Have I mentioned
my acrophobia? (www.roy
algorgeroute.com/)

AVON PARK
For most people, luscious
Sfield-ripened fruit and veg-
etables are a memory from
the past. Those who are
determined to have high quality pro-
duce at the peak of perfection search
for U-pick farms that allow cus-
tomers to go into the fields and
groves to pick their own. Formerly,
this meant bending and crawling in
dirt to gather ripe red strawberries,
juicy tomatoes and other vegetables.
All of this has changed with the
introduction of hydroponic farming,
an efficient growing method that pro-
duces huge yields in a small space,
with minimum use of water.
Two such farms in Highlands
County are now open to the public,
each offering a wide array of produce
throughout most of the year.
McCracken Farms is between Avon
Park and Sebring, just off of
Poweiline Road. Henscratch Farms
is west of Lake Placid, between State
Road 66 and County Road 621.
What hydroponic growing means
Hydroponics is a method of grow-
ing plants without soil and feeding
them with liquid nutrients. The
hydroponic growing units are made
of dense and durable Styrofoam
approximately six times the strength
of a commercial Styrofoam cooler.
Each section contains four plants and
can be stacked five on a pole. This
gives each Hydro-Stacker tower room
for 20 plants and takes up just four
square feet of ground space.
Picking strawberries, tomatoes,
vegetables or anything else growing
in a hydroponic stacking tower is
easy because there is no bending or
stooping required. The growing con-


tainers rotate so plants on all sides
can be picked easily.
The fruit is at a level almost any-
one can reach, including people in
wheelchairs.
The entire ground surface under
the stacker units is covered with a
rubberized plastic cloth. There is no
dirt or mud and the produce is safe
and healthy, as no pesticides or herbi-
cides are used.
McCracken Farms
McCracken Farms is a family busi-
ness, owned and operated by John
and Lois McCracken and their son
Mike Young. Their orange groves,
just off Powerline Road, have been
offering U-Pick citrus for 14 years.
In 2006, the McCrackens decided
to add a section of hydroponic stac-k-
ers to grow strav.berries and vegeta-
bles.
"We are always looking for things
that enhance what we already have,"


John McCracken
said.
McCracken
explained that the
cost of installing a
timed and automated
hydroponic system is
very expensive but
also efficient.
Because they already had an estab-
lished customer base, they felt it
would be a good investment. They
started with strawberries, installing
the entire set-up themselves on only
one-quarter acre of land.
They now have 14,500 plants pro-
ducing top-quality fruit from
November through June, with peak
productivity during February and
March. The vine-ripened berries are
lairg-:-ee t-and amazingly consistent
in size and shape. .
"Our strawberries taste delicious
because they are completely ripe
when you pick them," Lois

Winter residents Anne-Lise (from left) and Heinz Lampe select oranges and grapefruit
while John McCracken helps them sort through the fruit. Customers can pick their
own citrus from the grove, or can choose from the ready supply picked by the
McCrackens.


Alexia Phillips
shows off her
giant straw berry
during a morning
of picking at
McCracken
Farms in Avon
Park.


McCracken said. "Commercial
strawberries are picked pink and hard
and then shipped to the stores. They
may turn red, but they never taste as
sweet."
Insects and disease seem to avoid
plants grown in towers, greatly less-
ening the need for insecticides.
"We use very few chemicals on the
vegetables and none on the strawber-
ries," Lois emphasized.
They still have -five acres.of groves
dedicated to U-pick citrus. John
McCracken said that someone from
the farm always accompanies cus-
tomers to the citrus groves to pick
oranges and grapefruit: "We do not
allow anyone to go up on ladders."
A former teacher, McCracken
enjoys sitting with visitors on the
family's spacious front porch adja-
cent to the U-pick area. He willingly
answers questions about hydroponics,
citrus farming, or anything else a vis-
itor might want to discuss.
"We're a little different here; we
do things more slowly. We go out to
the growing areas and groves with
our customers if they need help. We
spend time with people, give them
help if they want to try hydroponics
at home," McCracken said.
McCracken's also sells hydroponic
stacking units, complete with the
growing medium and the nutrient
mixture needed to feed the plants.

Bereavement counselor shares thoughts


News-Sun photo by LARRY LEVEY
Kathy Wilde, a bereavement counselor for Good Shepherd
Hospice, points out that widowers often find it difficult to
talk about their feelings of grief.


* This is the last of a five-part
series on Men and Grief.

By LARRY LEVEY
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Kathy Wilde, a
bereavement counselor for
Good Shepherd Hospice, took

time recently to look back at the
men she has worked with. "I've
led more than 100 bereavement
groups," she said, "and only one
group had more men than
women.
"It averages out that in any
group, there are some five or
more women to each man."
Why does she think men are
reluctant to join a support
group?
"Our culture does not consid-
er it manly to show emotion. I
even see kids in school taunting
other boys who cry. But grief
creates a double-bind for men.
You're not supposed to show
emotion; but when you're griev-
ing, you're expected to show
emotion."
Some guidelines
Wilde offered some pointers
to anyone going through the
grief process:
1. Accept offers of support
from friends, family, neighbors.


2. Learn about grief. Talk to
others who have lost their
spouse. Talk to a clergyman you
feel comfortable with. Read
books on the topic.
3. Visit a counselor. But make
sure the counselor you chose is
adept at working with grief-
stricken clients. Not all are. And
don't join a support group until
at least three months have
passed. "Earlier than that, the
emotions are just too raw."
4. Hold off on making major
decisions. "Although every-
one's timetable is different, I
think the 'one-year rule' makes
sense. One year gives you the
chance to experience everything
by yourself that you had done
with your spouse, like birthdays
and anniversaries and holidays.
"Don't rush into.another rela-
tionship right away. And don't
move right away. Too often the
children want the surviving par-
ent to move back up north. And
when they do, they're miser-
able."
5. Take care of yourself. "Eat
right, rest, spend time with
other people."
6. "And don't think you ever
get over it. You just adjust to
life without that person who had


been part of your world."
If you remarry
What do you do with feelings
of grief after you remarry?
"It's healthy to still have
those feelings," Wilde said,
"and to accept these feelings
when they come and go without
feeling guilty. Frequently, in
remarriages, both spouses have
been widowed. You have a good
relationship if the two of you
are able to share your feelings
of grief with each other."
Wilde again stressed the need
to develop close relationships,
but that men and women differ
in how they relate. "Women
tend to talk about their feelings.
Men talk about their golf game.
"Connecting with other
human beings makes you feel
less alone but you have to
say more than just what your
golf score is."
She pointed out a bereave-
ment group can often help. "It's
a safe place, a place to develop
hope for a satisfying and mean-
ingful life."
For information on bereave-
ment counseling or groups, call
Wilde, at Good Shepherd
Hospice, 402-1066.

DIVERSIONS




'Reno 911' is surprisingly funny


I must confess: I have never
watched a complete episode
of "Reno 911" during its run
on Comedy Central. However,
my naivete about the popular
television show allows me to
analyze the film more fairly
than an ardent fan of the
show. I was able to go into the
theater with an open mind
about what looked like a very
funny movie judging by the
trailers.
And I was not disappoint-
ed.
The movie just clicked it
featured a talented core group
of actors, it featured several
excellent cameo performanc-
es, it was well-paced, and it
was downright funny. And as
an added bonus: it actually
has a very funny plot.
In case you're not familiar,
the premise of the TV show is
a "Cops"-like program that
follows a group of eight
deputies of the Reno, Nev.,
police department who, well,
aren't very good at their jobs.
In the film's plot revolves
around the Reno cops' trip to
Miami Beach for a police
convention. However, the
group is denied access to the
actual convention once they
arrive. When all of the police
at the convention, including
the entire Miami Police
Department, are quarantined
inside the convention center
due to a biological attack, the
Reno cops are the only ones
left to defend the city.
And defend it they don't.
The group proceeds to bumble
their way through some
unusual predicaments, includ-
ing dealing with a beached
whale (which they decide to
blow up) and an alligator in
someone's swimming pool
(which they decide to run
away from after it eats a

funny
me).


as it sounds, believe


In simpler terms, the plot
revolves around the eight
Reno cops doing their jobs
very poorly while saying stu-
pid things.
The movie also features
some very good cameos from
Danny DeVito, The Rock,
Paul Rudd, and Michael Ian
Black. The Rock's cameo as
a gung-ho SWAT team mem-
ber who tries to take control
of the situation, only to blow
himself up with a hand
grenade is the funniest.
The movie was co-written
by three of the cast members:
Robert Ben Garant (who plays
Deputy Travis Junior),
Thomas Lennon (who plays

Lieutenant Jim Dangle, the
head of the entire outfit), and
Wendi McLendon-Covey
(who plays Deputy
Clementine Johnson).
The writing trio has experi-
ence writing movie comedies,
some good and some bad. The
group is responsible for the
Ben Stiller smash hit "Night
at the Museum," but they
were also the people behind
dreadful comedies such as
"Let's Go to Prison,"
"Herbie: Fully Loaded," "The
Pacifier," and "Taxi."
What makes "Reno 911!:
Miami" a funny movie
(besides the odd punctuation
in the movie's title), is its
willingness to be nothing
more than a silly, stupid
movie. The movie is consis-
tently funny because its char-
acters are consistently funny,
and the situations they are put
in are consistently funny as
well. Attempting to capture a
runaway chicken in the mid-
dle of the road by trying to
shoot it in a circle formation?
That's funny (to me, at least).
The movie also manages to
stay away from an all-too-
common trap in comedies -
trying to force laughter by
putting characters in outra-
geously ridiculous situations.
The characters of "Reno
911!" can carry the comedic
load on in any situation


because they're funny, well-
written, and well-acted sim-
ple things that make comedies
such as these work.
The movie earns its R rat-
ing with plenty of bad lan-
guage, strange sexual situa-
tions that I would be fired
from this newspaper for even
thinking about writing them,
and a surprising amount of
(cartoonish) violence. But the
film's adult content doesn't
distract from the comedy, and
in plenty of cases it adds to it.
If I can enjoy the film with-
out having ever watched the
TV show, I'm assuming actu-
al fans of the show will enjoy
the movie even more than I
did. So if you haven't seen (or
even heard of) "Reno 911,"
don't be scared away you
can enjoy the movie anyways.
I highly recommend this
movie to anyone just looking
for some cheap, simple laughs
at the movie theater.

The saving work of Jesus Christ


"It is finished" (John 19:30).
When Jesus uttered those
dying words at Golgotha it sig-
naled more than the end of his F4
earthly sojourn here on earth.
Those words marked the begin-
ning of a new and better way
for man to be in a relationship
with God. Man had tried for
centuries to please God by
good behavior or law keeping Ver
only to fail at every turn. V
Great men like, the "friend of Spil
God," Abraham and David, a V
"man after God's own heart,"
had tried and failed. No one who Verlon
had tried had ever kept the law of
God perfectly until Jesus. Therefore
when he came into the world, he said,
"Sacrifice and offering you did not
desire. But a body you have prepared for
me. In burnt offerings and sacrifices for
sin you had no pleasure. Then I said,
Behold, I have come in the volume of
the book it is written of me to do your
will, O God."
By that will we have been sanctified
through the offering of the body of Jesus
Christ once for all. "But this man (Jesus),
after he had offered one sacrifice for sins
forever, sat down at the right had of
God." (Hebrews 10: 5-7, 10,12). At the


l(
ri


w (


cross Jesus finished what God
had always wanted his will
kept in a human body.
So what does that mean for
us? It means our sin debt has
been paid in full. It also means
we can stop trying to save our-
selves, stop trusting in our
ability to keep a law and trust
in the fact that Jesus has
o S already done that for us.
o S Think how silly we must look
tual to Jesus for trying to accomplish
i something for ourselves that he
i has already done for us.
Carrell Salvation is not man-accom-
plished, it is God-accomplished.
Think of what the Bible says concern-
ing our efforts. Do you think your good
works can save you or keep you saved?
"For by grace you have been saved
through faith, and that not of yourselves;
it is the gift of God, not of works, lest
any man shall boast." (Ephesians 2: 8-9).
Are you thinking maybe you can be
saved by your morality or your right-
eousness? Listen to Titus. "But when the
kindness and the love of God our savior
toward man appeared, not by works or
righteousness which we have done, but
according to his mercy he saved us."
(3:4-5). You see it really is. all about


Jesus and what he has accomplished for
us.
When Jesus, weak from the beating
and the crucifixion spoke the words "It is
finished," he was assuring us that he had
"died for our sins" (I Cor. 15:1-4),
"became sin for us" (II Cor. 5:21) and
"suffered for us" ( I Peter 2:21). He was
letting us rest on the promise that he
"bore our sins in his own body on the
tree," and "by his stripes we are
healed." (I Peter 2:24).
When we know these things and more
importantly trust in them, is it any won-
der why the word gospel means good
news!?
Have you got friends and family who
are not Christians? Share the good news
of Jesus with them. And when they tell
you they are not and can never be good
enough you agree and tell that is
exactly why Jesus died for them! "For
Christ also suffered once for sin, the just
for the unjust, that he might bring us to
God, being put to death in the flesh but
made alive by the spirit." (I Peter 3:18).

PICKING'
Continued from 1B
are sold for $3 per pound.
Currently, the plants are
loaded with fruit and cus-
tomers can fill a bucket
standing in one place. The
tomatoes, peppers and other
vegetables sell for $1 per
pound.
McCracken Farms is open
for U-pick seven days a week
from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Take State Road 17 to
Powerline Road, then turn
onto Harnage, and look for


the tractors and the house on
your right.
Henscratch Farms
Hydroponic fields are a
more recent addition to the
vineyards and winery at
Henscratch Farms.
According to owner Johanne
Lauchman, they have 30,000
strawberry plants on three-
quarters of an acre. They
have another quarter of an
acre planted in a variety of
vegetables. This is their
fourth year of hydroponic
farming.
"We were looking for
something to be a key point


feature for our northern
guests," Lauchman explains.
"The grapes are mainly a
summer crop and most of the
winter residents have left."
Lauchman said the
improvement of hydroponics
over dirt farming is the den-
sity of the yield, the cleanli-
ness, and the novelty "this
is the same system featured
at Epcot Center."
The vegetables at
Henscratch suffered frost
damage and that section had
to be replanted, but the
strawberries are doing fine.
"We will have summer
vegetables in a couple of
months, including green
beans and sweet peas,"
Lauchman said.
Henscratch Farms is open
for U-pick Tuesday through
Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5
p.m.. Closed Mondays. They
are on Henscratch Road west
of US 27, accessed from
either from SR 66 or CR 621.

scratch.com.

Senior Softball

Central Security

rolls to 3rd win
Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Central
Security got its third win of the sea-
son (3 and 11) in a 23-8 victory
,over an error-plagued Advanced
Mobile Systems team (7 and 8) in
the Lake Placid Senior Softball
League play on Wednesday at the
Lake June ball fields.
Most of the numerous hits by the
Central Security (3-8) team were
just out of the reach of the infield-
ers or fell in front of the outfielders
of the AMS (7-8) defense. Dropped
balls also contributed to the loss by
AMS in one inning, three rather
routine fly balls were dropped, giv-
ing little support to pitcher Dick
Harmick.
However, Central Security also
had a lot of good hits. Don
Cunningham, Tom Walsh and Paul
Stephenson were 4-for-5 and Bob
Weis was 3-for-5 for the winners.
AMS not only had fielding woes,
but also batting woes with only
Charley Quinn and Dick Schultz
getting as many as three hits, both
going 3-for-4.
The other game on Wednesday
saw Lake Placid Marine (8-7) bare-
ly top Michelle Yates Insurance (8-
6) in a 26-24 slugfest in a game it
appeared that neither team wanted
to win at times.
Fred Moore led the winning
effort with four hits, including
three doubles. Jim Guild and Bob
Fox also had four hits each and
three-hit performances were con-
tributed by Howard Carney, Victor
Rodriquez, Glen Wearsch and
Sergio Prieto who had a home run
in the gap.
The losing team did not go away
without a fight, having the tying
runs on base when the last out was
made. Harland Newby and Moe
Pier had four hits each for Yates
with Pier having two triples and a
double. John Miller and Frank
Hedges also had three hits.

Long night for Panthers

SFCC first baseman Brien Coppola is too late to get Clinton Storr of Brevard out at first base on
Wednesday.


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
dahiel.hoehne@newssun.com
AVON PARK It was
another long night for the South
Florida Community College
Panthers, both figuratively and
literally.
Literally in the fact that the
game went 11 innings and last-
ed a shade over three hours.
Figuratively in the frustration
of another sloppy loss, as they
fell 8-5 to Brevard in the extra-
inning affair.
"Once again, we were mak-
ing defensive mistakes to put
ourselves in a hole," head coach
Rick Hitt said.
That was the case in the sec-
ond as Titan Clinton Storr

ally was brought in on a

South Florida got that run
back in short order when Nick
Polston tattooed one over the
left-field wall in the bottom of
the fourth.
The Panthers seemed to


dodge a major bullet early in
the sixth, when Storr rocketed a
shot toward the right field wall
and Dale Slimick snared the
drive with a leaping grab
against the fence, but that
relieved feeling was short-
lived.
Garcia singled and was safe
at second when a double play
attempt on a Chavez grounder
went for naught, putting two on
with one out. Desi Perez then
singled in a run and he and
Chavez advanced into scoring

two runs and suddenly it was a
5-1 Brevard lead.
But the Panthers began to
claw their way back in the bot-
tom of the inning with Nick
Stanley singling up the middle
and scoring on Slimick's sacri-
fice fly.
They inched back a little
more in the seventh, as it was
Brevard's turn to be a bit sloppy
in the field.
Brien Coppola shot a double
into the left-center field gap and
moved to third as Reco Jackson
reached first and second on a
double error from the Titan
shortstop. A wild pitch brought
Coppola across the plate and
Brad Gooch brought Jackson
home with an RBI single to
make it a 5-4 game.
With Calvin Brutus now on
in relief, the Brevard bats were
held in check and when Dustin
Huguley worked a bases-loaded
walk in the eighth, the game
was all knotted at 5-5.
The Titans had runners at
first and third with two out in

rebounds.
Dwayne Collins had 12
points and 12 boards, for the
Hurricanes. Jimmy Graham
had nine points, seven
rebounds and five blocked
shots. Miami finished with 19
offensive rebounds giving
the 'Canes enough second-
chance shots to build the big
lead.
Mike Jones led the
Terrapins with 15 points. D.J.
Strawberry added 13, and Gist
finished with 12. Ekene
Ibekwe had eight points, eight
rebounds and four blocked
shots before fouling out with
2:01 remaining.
Not only did Maryland give
up .too many offensive
rebounds, the team struggled
from the field. The Terrapins

- 3-Fipnt range. They ato


both the ninth and 10th innings
but failed to score, and the
Panthers had a golden opportu-
nity with runners at first and
second and one out in the ,10th.
But although Huguley blast-
ed one to the left-field wall, the
runner at second had to hold to
make sure the ball wasn't
caught, resulting in a very long
single that loaded the bases.
A missed base running sign
on the ensuing suicide squeeze
attempt doomed the play at the
plate and ended the threat.
And then there was Storr
again, leading off an inning
with a single and coming
around to score one out later for
a 6-5 Brevard lead, before a
throwing error with the bases
loaded brought in two more for
the final margin of victory.
"We climb back into the
game with (Calvin) Brutus
pitching his guts out and I real-
ly thought we had a chance to
get this one," Hitt said. "And
then we miss a sign on the
squeeze play, we have a guy

next guy swings at the first
pitch for the life of me I just


missed 11 free throws.
Eric Hayes had a shot to tie
the game with about 10 sec-
onds to play, but his 3-pointer
came up short. Greivis
Vasquez got the rebound and
forced up a desperation shot
that missed the rim entirely.
The victory was huge for
Miami, which had lost three
in a row and 11 of the previ-
ous 13. Coach Frank Haith's
team has played much of the
season short-handed, and the
conference tournament was
no different as the 'Canes

Anthony King.

er Ryan Grant on a busted squeeze play Wednesday.


can't figure this stuff out. I
mean, it's baseball."
Baseball it is that beauti-


of the Atlantic Coast
Conference tournament.
Thornton, the ACC's lead-
ing scorer and runner-up for
conference player of the year,
carried the ninth-seeded
Seminoles (20-11) down the
stretch. His block at one end
of the floor denied Clemson
what looked like a sure bas-
ket, then drove the baseline

on the other end for a dunk
that tied the game for the last
time.
Florida State advanced to
Friday's quarterfinals against
top seed North Carolina. The
Seminoles also bolstered their
case for a berth in the NCAA
tournament, while No. 8 seed
Clemson (21-10) may have
eliminated itself from con-
tention by losing for the 10th
time'in 14 games after start-
ing season 17-0.
Jason Rich scored 12 points
for Florida State, which ral-
lied from, a 66-6.1 deficit with
a 3-pointer from Toney


fully frustrating game that right
now is just frustrating the
Panthers.


Douglas and Thornton's dunk.
Clemson's Cliff Hammonds
turned the ball over with 8.3
seconds left, and the Tigers'
K.C. Rivers fouled Thornton
in the lane with the Florida
State star trying to get off a
potential game-winning shot.
Thornton, coming off a
career-high 45-point perform-
ance in an overtime victory
over Miami, missed the first
free throw but made the sec-
ond.
Trevor Booker led Clemson
with 18 points and nine
rebounds. Hammonds fin-
ished with 16 points and
Vernon Hamilton added 13 for
the Tigers.
Clemson swept the season
series between the teams,
winning 68-66 in Tallahassee
on Jan. 3 and 71-58 at home
on Feb. 7, when Florida State
lost Douglas the
Seminoles' floor leader -
with a broken bone in his
right hand.. ;


The NFL off-season has
suddenly gotten as dramatic
as can be, which is odd tim-
ing since we're stuck in that
portion of the year where we
are still not quite to March
Madness and just far enough
past the Super Bowl to be
hungry for anything interest-
ing.
Joey Porter to the
Dolphins, Jamal Lewis to the
Browns (which shows that
he's just trying to get paid by
a team, any team. I mean,
who actually seeks out the
Browns to play for?),
Thomas Jones to the Jets and
the Buccaneers making deals
with any and every quarter-
back with a spleen.
It's gotten quite dramatic
in Bears camp, as there has
been much public chagrin
with the Jones trade, the
front office whiningly
defending the deal, Lance
Briggs saying he'd play for
every aspect of the team
(teammates, coaches, city,
fans) just not for the manage-
ment.
After refusing the team's
offer of a long-term deal,
Briggs is enraged that the
team had the gall to slap the
franchise tag on him, auto-
matically keeping him in a
Bears uniform for $7.2 mil-
lion next season.
By putting the franchise
tag on him, the team is not
allowing him to go into free
agency, to test the market
and possibly sign a long-term
deal with, say, the Browns.
He's playing on a team
that reached the Super Bowl,
is going to be paid over $7
million (which is more, for
the season, than contracts
such as Porter's will be pay-
ing) and he's somehow mad
about this?
It is infuriating to me to
have to deal with the "Rocket
' Watch" the countdown to


"40.I-.




And Another
Thing ...
Dan Hoehne

Roger Clemens deciding if
he's going to pitch this sea-
son, when he's going to pitch
this season and who he might
pitch for sometime this sea-
son.
Just Thursday morning, on
an ESPN newsbreak, they
took the time to announce
that Roger hadn't decided
anything yet. Gee, thanks.
Glad you're keeping me
posted on nothing.
Then, of course, there is
the over sensationalizing of
everything happening in the
first week of spring training
games.
Sammy Sosa hit a home
run! (Off of a minor league
pitcher) ... Dice-K looked
fantastic in his first pitching
appearance! (against Boston
College) ... Barry Zito
dressed up like Paula Abdul,
just like Barry Bonds did last
year! (Well, they do play in
San Francisco)
Thanks for the misguided
enthusiasm, but I'll just bide
my time until the NCAA bas-
ketball tournament by seeing
how many excuses athletes
come up with when caught
violating league drug policies
- which I will be writing
about soon in what should be
quite the comedic column.

Major League Baseball


If it's spring training, then Braves' Hampton must be hurt


By The Associated Press
Mike Hampton is hurt again,
and this time it has nothing to
do with his arm.
The Atlarita Braves' left-han-
der injured his left side during
batting practice, and won't be
ready for the start of the regular
season.
Hampton, starting the sev-
enth season of a $121 million,
eight-year contract, will miss
the rest of spring training and
could be out as long as two
months. The Braves had been
counting on him to bolster a
rotation that includes John
Smoltz, Tim Hudson and Chuck
James.
"I think I pulled it pretty
bad," Hampton said Thursday
in Kissimmee, Fla. "There's
nothing you can do about it now
except try to get it healed up
and get it better."
Hampton was taking batting
practice Wednesday at the
Braves' complex while the team
was playing the Detroit Tigers
in nearby Lakeland. He fell to
the ground in pain after a swing,
prompting fears that he broke a
rib.
X-rays were negative and
team doctors determined that he
strained his left oblique, still a
serious injury for a pitcher.
Hampton, who missed all of
last season after elbow surgery,
already was. coming along
slower than expected. Now, he
isn't likely to return to the
majors before May.
In Dunedin, Frank Thomas
made his first appearance for
the Toronto Blue Jays, going 1-
for-3 with an RBI in a "B"
game against the Philadelphia
Phillies.
"I prefer to start late like this


because you know what you're
doing out there," said Thomas,
who signed an $18.12 million,
two-year contract. "You've had
enough BP, enough cage work
to know what you're doing out
there."
Thomas is scheduled to be a
designated hitter in Friday's 'A'
game against the Houston
Astros.
A.J. Burnett started in the 'B'
game and allowed three runs
and four hits in three innings,
mixing in his curveball for the
first time. He struck out two and
walked one.
In other games:
Marlins 2
Dodgers 1
At Vero Beach, Fla., Derek
Lowe and Anibal Sanchez both
were sharp in a matchup of
pitchers who threw the most
recent no-hitters in both
leagues.
Each pitched three strong
innings, with the Dodgers'
Lowe allowing no runs and the
Marlins' Sanchez just one.
Lowe gave up one hit and faced
10 hitters.
Sanchez, bidding to move up
in the Florida rotation, made
one mistake, hanging a 1-0 slid-
er that Nomar Garciaparra
drove to left for a homer.
Twins (ss) 1
Red Sox (ss) 0
At Fort Myers, Johan
Santana bested Curt Schilling,
striking out four in three score-
less innings, their second exhi-
bition meeting this year.
Schilling struck out four in four
innings, allowing one run, two-
hits and one walk. He worked
on a changeup, a pitch he's try-


ing to add to his repertoire.
Red Sox (ss) 3
Blue Jays 2
At Fort Myers, Kyle Snyder
gave up two homers during his
first four batters, solo drives by
Jason Smith and John-Ford
Griffin.
Yankees 5,
Braves 3, 10 innings
At Kissimmee, Tim Hudson
allowed one earned run during
four innings and struck out
three. Mike Mussina started for
the Yankees and went three
innings.
Nationals 12
Astros 5
At Viera, Josh Wilson went
3-for-3 with two RBIs and two
runs scored.
The 25-year-old shortstop
raised his batting average from
.222 to .417.
Pirates 5,
Devil Rays 2
At Bradenton, Devils Ray
catcher Dioner Navarro strained
a hamstring while running the
bases in the seventh and was
thrown out at the plate. He
expects to miss a couple of
days, but no more.
Indians 7
Phillies 6
At Winter Haven, after Shin-
Soo Choo's two-run single in
the ninth inning won it, Indians
manager Eric Wedge said pitch-
er Cliff Lee's lingering abdomi-
nal injury hasn't gotten better
and he won't pitch for at least
10-to-12 more days.


Tigers 9
Reds 7
At Sarasota, Nate Robertson
struck out five of his 11 batters,
giving up one hit and two walks
in 2 2/3 scoreless innings.
Placido Polanco hit a solo
homer in the first and Chris
Shelton added a two-run drive
in the third.
Both were off Aaron Harang,
who gave up seven hits and four
runs in three innings.


Cardinals 2,
Twins (ss) 1
At Jupiter, Randy Keisler
pitched three shutout innings in
relief of Kip Wells, who gave
up six hits and no earned runs.
Orioles 8
Mets 7
At Port St. Lucie, back on the
mound after a bout was arthritis
in his neck, Orlando Hernandez


gave up five runs and six hits in
just two innings.
Adam Donachie hit a three-
run homer as the Orioles took a
5-0 lead in the second.
Rangers 7
Athletics 6
At Phoenix, Sammy Sosa
went 2-for-3 for Texas, raising
his average to .467, and Nelson
Cruz hit a two-run triple.
Bradley tripled, singled and
drove in a run.
