Harder Hall investor


objects to fee request J


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING Harder Hall
investor Kenwhite
Management, LLC, has
filed an objection to more
than $77,000 in fees
requested by the Chapter 11
examiner and his legal
counsel.
Kenwhite is objecting to
the fee applications, filed
Feb. 23, made by examiner
Soneet Kapila and the
Markowitz law firm, which
assisted Kapila in his work.
Brian K. Gart, of the
Greenberg Traurig law firm
in Fort Lauderdale that rep-
resents Kenwhite, filed a


limited objection
Monday to the
fees and expens-
es requested by
Kapila and his
legal counsel.
Kenwhite
agreed to pay the
fees and expens-
es of the exam-
iner after U.S.
B an k r up tc y
Court Judge


Kenwhite's view, had little
or no bearing on the court's
ultimate decision to appoint
a Chapter 11 trustee," Gart
wrote.
Kenwhite anticipated
paying no more than
$20,000 in fees because it
was under the impression
that Joran's accountant had
already done most of the
accounting work.
"Kenwhite's agreement
was based on the belief that
all the examiner really
needed to do ... was to
review the accounting work
that had already been done,"
Gart wrote.
The company based its

Laurel Isicoff appointed
him in December. Kapila
asked for $52,152.69 in fees
and costs in his fee applica-
tion, and the Markowitz
Firm requested an addition-
' al $25,486.94.
Kenwhite's formal objec-
tion to the fee requests
acknowledges their agree-
ment to finance the examin-
er and his staff. But accord-
ing to the objection, the
company didn't agree to
fund what they call an over-
ly extensive examination of
Joran Realty, which dupli-
cated work that was previ-
ously done.
"Kenwhite ... never
understood that it was pro-
viding a 'blank check' to
fund an inconclusive, over-
staffed and duplicative
investigation, or for the
examiner to prepare an
unnecessarily extensive ini-
tial report which, in


expectation of
$20,000 in fees
on a directive
given to Kapila
by the bankrupt-
cy court,
instructing him
not to duplicate
the accountant's
work.


miner "Had the prin-
cipals of
Kenwhite had any idea that
the examiner's fees and
costs would be almost four
times greater than what they
had anticipated," Gart
wrote, "they would have
never agreed to the open-
ended arrangement that has
now been' imposed on
them.",
According to the objec-
tion, Kenwhite is still will-
ing to pay "reasonable fees"
of the examiner and his
counsel. The company is
asking for a reduction of
fees to $55,000. Under
Kenwhite's proposal,
$37,500 would be paid
immediately and the
remaining $17,500 would
be paid as an administrative
expense, which would be
paid along with the rest of
the administrative claims in
the bankruptcy case.
The next hearing in the
case is scheduled for April 4
in Miami.

Skaters unhappy

with enforcement
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING During spring break,
hangouts such as Sebring's local skate
park are bustling with activity.
But for the skate park, that's no
change from any other time. according
to Sebring Police Sergeant Andre\w
Markham.
"It's pretty busy after school, not just
spring break," Markham said. "They'll
be sitting outside waiting for us to open
at 8 in the morning."
These early risers see police and are
familiar with the rules and how they are
enforced.
'You have Markham jokingly

100 calls a day.

getting prised how many calls

driving by that tell us

here than helmets," Markham
said. "Seven days a

regulations."
Skater Unlike other skate
PATRICK parks such as the
SEASER one in Wauchula -
that allow patrons to
skate at their own risk, the Sebring park
requires skaters to wear helmets and
possess identification cards, which are
available at the local police depart-
ment.
The policing of the park has gotten
out of hand, some skaters say.

City bans

buildings

with metal

exteriors
By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING Buildings
with visible metal exteri-
ors will no longer be
allowed in the city limits
under a new ordinance
passed at Tuesday's city
council meeting.
The new ordinance,
which was approved
unanimously, does not ban
metal buildings within the
city limits. However, it
does require metal exteri-
ors to be covered by stuc-
co, brick or other similar
materials.
Storage or utility sheds
measuring 200 square feet
or less are exempted, as
are public schools and
buildings in C-2 and 1-1
zoning.
The ordinance will also
place more restrictions on
new prefabricated or mod-
ular buildings in the city.
The city will no longer
issue building permits for
the two building types
until they have been
approved by the Planning
and Zoning Commission.
To be approved under the
new ordinance, prefab and
modular buildings will
have to meet three criteria
they cannot be "visually
intrusive," they must be
"consistent with the char-
acter of the neighborhood
and the community," and
they must be "appropriate
and harmonious with the
surrounding neighborhood
structures."
Existing buildings with
metal exteriors will be
grandfathered in under the
new ordinance, and will
remain exempt unless they
are repaired at a cost of
more than 50 percent of
the then-fair market value
of the building.

ing:

a $13,400 allocation to

Colony Point resident


threatens lawsuit

Complaint stems from 1988 rezoning


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@ newssun.com
SEBRING Some resi-
dents of a mobile home subdi-
vision say they 're being held
captive by a 1988 rezoning
they believe was illegal.
In 1988, the board of coun-
ty commissioners rezoned 32
acres of Colony Point from
M-l to M-2 changing por-
tions from a subdivision to a
rental park.
"The county took our rights
away as homeowners,"
Robert Tracy-Gould said.
Gould took his case to the
county commissioners
Tuesday, arguing the board's
decision 18 years ago indi-
rectly gave the owners of


Colony Point Mobile Home
Park (which owns more than
50 percent of the lots) control
of the subdivision.
The sticking point, he said,
is the motion that passed
unanimously Aug. 23, 1988,
was contingent upon unde-
fined and, therefore, unmet
stipulations.
Gould said the county had
two options rezone the
properties in question or ask'
the court to decide if the
rezoning is valid.
Commission chairman C.
Guly Maxcy reminded the
board of a third option to
take no action. After Gould

Fire Danger Weather Kit

available as part of promotion


Special to the News-Sun
April 8-14 is Wildfire
Awareness Week in Florida.
In order to promote Wildfire
Awareness Week this year, the
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services is
once again holding a contest
in which television viewers
will be able to answer trivia
questions about fire weather
and fire danger and win "Fire
Danger Weather Kits."
Weather is often over-
looked when wildfires and
fire danger are discussed.
Although lightning starts a
large number of wildfires in
Florida, the main cause
remains human-based. While
it is difficult to change the
number of arson-initiated
wildfires, fires that begin due
to carelessness may be
reduced through education.
Debris burning, where
allowed, is often done on
days where the weather con-
ditions are likely to cause
fires to escape if not properly
conducted or attended. Windy
conditions, low humidity and
dry fuels can all contribute to
the escape and spread of a
simple backyard fire into a
large wildfire.


The "Fire Danger Weather
Kits" contain materials that
can help teach Florida resi-
dents about the wildfire threat
that exists in the state all year
round and conditions that are
likely to contribute to initia-
tion of wildfires. The ther-
mometer and rain gauge can
be used to monitor local con-
ditions and raise awareness of
the lack of rainfall and warm
temperatures that may indi-
cate unfavorable burning con-
ditions. Rainfall in Florida is
typically sporadic in nature
and locations several miles
apart may report significantly
different rainfall amounts
from the same atom system.
This kit can help people
increase their weather aware-
ness as well as their local
threat from wildfires.
Severe burning conditions
are already impacting the
state and wildfire occurrence
continues to increase. The
outlook for a La Nina this
spring also increases the like-
lihood of Florida experienc-
ing another active fire season.
If you have any questions,
e-mail Dr. Deborah Hanley,
meteorologist at at han
leyd@doacs.state.fl.us.

Flowers performs for benefit

concert at Samaritan's center


News-Sun photo by SCOTT DRESSEL
Firefighters set up a fan to help clear the smoke out of a
mobile home at 302 Second Street in the Leisure Acres
mobile home park in Sebring Monday afternoon. The
fire started in the kitchen after Kenneth Stewart and
MaryAnn Morrow had eaten lunch and left to visit a
friend. An alert neighbor saw the smoke, broke out a
window and sprayed the flames with a garden hose until
the fire trucks arrived on the scene. Sebring Fire Chief
Brad Batz said that while he doesn't recommend anyone
try to fight a fire with a garden hose, the actions of the
neighbor definitely prevented more damage to the home.
The fire itself was contained in the kitchen area,
although the entire home had smoke damage.


What's covered under Tri-Care?


While Tri-Care covers
medically necessary, skilled
nursing care, it does not cover
long-term care. If skilled
services are no longer med-
ically necessary, but long-
term care services are needed,
beneficiaries will be responsi-
ble for all expenses.
Tri-Care usually covers
medically necessary skilled
nursing facility care if benefi-
ciaries meet the following cri-
teria:
hospitalized for at least
three consecutive days, not
including the day of dis-
charge;
admitted within 30 days
of hospital discharge (with
some exceptions);
determined by a doctor to
need medical rehabilitation
and skilled services; and
being cared for at a facil-
ity that is both Medicare-cer-
tified and a Tro-Care-partici-
pating provider.
During a skilled nursing
facility stay, staff members
regularly review beneficiar-
ies, health care needs to
determine the type of care
required. If staff members
determine beneficiaries need
enough skilled services to
meet the defined skilled nurs-


ing facility requirements,
Medicare and TRICARE pay
the facility a set amount.

care.mil.

Letter of Thanks

Almost 20 years ago, we
fell in love with the beauti-
ful hills and lakes of Lake
Placid. On Monday, March
'19, 2007, we fell in love
with the people of this
county. That wa the day
we buried our precious
son, Josh Cooper. The
night before his funeral I
opened the Bible and Jesus
spoke these words. "Verily
I say unto thee, today shalt
thou be with me in para-
dise." We know Josh gave
Jesus that little nod that all
his friends gave when they
said hello. Than,.yqu will
ne% er express how we feel.
We wefre. o\er'helmed
with the support, food,
friends, love each and
everyone showed us.
May God bless you,
Steve, Judy, Shane and
family

YOUR LOVED ONES WILL LOVE THIS
A BWhen you gather your family together this Easter,
.., everything should be absolutely perfect. Ahd that means a
Traditional, flavorful.ham in the center of your holiday table. Choose
a Publix Semi-Boneless Ham for this special occasion, and everyone will
savor the experience for years to come.


OUR RECOUR SMOKEHOUSES, YOUR GOOD FORTUNE.
After curing our ham with a special blend of seasonings, we slow-cook it for
up to 12 hours to achieve the most tender and juicy results. Next, we smoke
the ham over hickory hardwood to give it an incomparably mild and delicious
flavor. The final result is a classic-tasting, savory ham that contains 25% less
sodium than the leading national brand.


PICKING THE PERFECT HAM.
Visit the Meat department at your neighborhood Publix. Every Publix Semi-
Boneless Ham includes the most desirable cut-the center slices-so all
you have to do is choose the ideal size for your family. Figure on approximately
1/2 pound per person, with perhaps a bit extra to enjoy after the holiday.


SIMPLY WARM IT TO ITS FULLEST GLORY.
Fully cooked, this ham only requires heating up. Remove all packaging and
wrap the ham in aluminum foil (to keep it moist and flavorful), and place it
in a shallow baking pan in a 3250F oven. Heat it for approximately 20
minutes per pound, and you're on your way to a wonderful, unforgettable
holiday meal.

SKATE
SContinued from 1A
"You have a better chance
getting arrested skating here
Than skating on the street,"
skateboarder Patrick Seaser,
17, said. "The helmet thing is
% unfair. If you are over 18 you
Should be able to skate at your
Sown risk."
There are other rules police
enforce, but the helmet rule
accounts for most violations.
"All I had was my ID and
they took my pass away,"
Noel Davidson, 15, said. "I
got trespassing for two weeks.
I couldn't go in or I couldn't
go back."
Two weeks later, Davidson
retrieved his identification
card from the police depart-
ment and was told actions
would be taken if he didn't
comply with rules in the
future.
"He said that if I do it
again, I would be trespassing
and would get probation,"
Davidson said. "I got my ID
back and I've been skating
since."
The park has even been
shut down by Sebring police
on some days due to users'
noncompliance with park reg-
ulations.
"We have to keep them
playing by the rules,"
Markham said. "If they don't
cooperate, it gets shut down
for the rest of the day."
Aside from their distaste of
the helmet rule, skaters have
other concerns.
The bittersweet taste of
having new lighting in place,
but not yet being used, is
leaving skaters confused.
"You skate better at night
it's cooler and there are
less distractions," Pat


Elsenheimer said. "Skating in
the day is killing me; it's too
hot out. Get the lights on,
that's all I want."
Robin Hinote of the
Sebring Community
Redevelopment Agency said
contractors were at the park
Wednesday to work on the
timing equipment.
"As of Thursday, they
should be functioning,"
Hinote said. "The lights are
up and ready to use."
Baffled skaters were excit-
ed Wednesday when the lights
came on, only to have their
hopes of a late-night skate
session crushed when Police
closed the park within 15
minutes, Seaser said.

"Why should we be paying

said, indicating frustration
and resignation. "I was just


"We wanted lingts, worKed
hard to get it approved with
the city, then finally they
decided to get them and we
got it," Seaser said.
"Wednesday was the first
time the lights were on, then
15 minutes later they closed
the park."
Since the lights are just
starting to be utilized, it was
merely a miscommunication
between the city and the
police department, Hinote
said.
Now lighting will be used
to keep the park open and

month and leave things the
way they were."
Wagner disagreed with
Gould's tactics, which he said
resulted in a code enforce-
ment crackdown.
Commissioner Edgar E.
Stokes recommended Gould
and Garner work together for
a solution. Commissioner
Barbara Stewart agreed.
County attorney J. Ross
MacBeth and commissioner
Andrew Jackson said this
commission couldn't invali-
date a previous board's zon-
ing action.
"What we have here by way
of record is not very much,"
MacBeth said.

books almost 20 years, and

The council appointed
Gary Lower to the city's new
zoning superintendent posi-

unanimous recommendation
of a city search committee
consisting of council mem-
bers Margie Rhoades and Bud
Whitlock, City Clerk Kathy
Haley, and Planning and
Zoning Commission
Chairman (and incoming City
Council member) Scott
Stanley.
Lower previously served as


closed years ago.
MacBeth acknowledged the
information the board had
Tuesday didn't reflect testi-
mony and documents that
might surface during court
proceedings.
Gould said he's considering
two lawsuits $100 million
against the county (through a
Fort Myers law firm charging
40 percent) and another
against Garner (by a Sebring
attorney with Swaine, Harris
& Sheehan).
According to Colony
Point's subdivision charter,
the developer was entitled to
250 votes until the last lot was
sold or Dec. 31, 1993, which
ever occurred first.
The rezoning change
allowed Garner to keep votes
as a landlord, renting his
properties and controlling the
community's affairs, Gould
said.
"The county are the one
who caused it and the county
are refusing to do anything
about it," he said. "Come to
Florida. Have your dream
home. And, get screwed."

A move to switch
High gas prices have already prompted many
Americans to switch to fuel-efficient hybrid vehicles.
But, as proponents of the technology have long
argued, the key to winning broader public acceptance
of hybrids may lie in how quickly government agen-
cies start using them. The more frequently people see
hybrids on the road, the more likely they are to buy
one for themselves.
To its credit, the Manatee County school district
recently joined the ranks of pioneers in the use of
hybrids by adding two diesel-electric buses to its
fleet.
Manatee was the first of 19 school districts in the
nation to receive the buses with help from a subsidy
by Advanced Energy, a nonprofit corporation devoted
to developing alternative energy technology.
The school buses, manufactured by the Indiana-
based IC Corp., are powered by diesel fuel and plug-
in batteries. The buses use a "regenerative" braking
system that helps recharge their batteries, much like
the systems that power most hybrid cars today.
According to Advanced Energy, the hybrids two
or three times as expensive as conventional school
buses recoup the extra cost through 70-100 percent
improvements in fuel economy over long-term use.
The hybrids are also said to reduce diesel emissions
by 90 percent.
Gov. Charlie Crist, who rode one of Manatee's
buses during a visit Friday, called them "an important
step in saving our state's greatest natural resources."
If they perform as advertised, the buses like
hybrid cars will have an important role to play in
our nation's transition from fossil fuels toward renew-
able energy.

A sleep-talker conversation


It's 7:05 a.m., and I've
been sitting at the computer
writing and talking to my
- daughter Jillian. One might
Wonder how I can type and
talk at the same time, but it's
fairly easy when it doesn't
matter what you say.
I've been speaking random
words ... gibberish, which is
exactly what I've been getting
from her, as she's sound
asleep on the couch. I should
have recognized this fact
immediately when she
announced roughly an hour
ago that she's "always the one
that has to pick up the socks."
First of all, she's never the
one that "always has to do
anything." She is a creative
creature and thereby has man-
aged to steer clear of any reg-
ular responsibilities around
the house. She'll pitch in
when asked, but to simply
assign her a regular chore on
a daily basis is unheard of.
Furthermore "picking up
socks" is not a chore that war-
rants assigning to someone on
its own, such as say, straight-
ening up the living room, or
washing a load of clothes.
"Whose socks?" I inquired,
as I did not realize initially
that I was speaking to some-
one who was unconscious.
"You know," she mumbled,
"the ones with the red toes."
There are no socks with red
toes in this house. This is
when I realized that she was
sleep-talking, and thereby,
was fair game. If you've ever
lived with a sleep-talker, you
probably know that when they
are engaged in sleep-talking,
it's a good as shooting them
up with sodium pentothal, or
"truth serum."
"What time did you get
home Saturday night?" I
asked, seizing the moment
with both hands. Her curfew
was midnight.
There was a long pause;
when you're asleep, your
memory takes longer to kick
in.
"Uhh ... 12:30?" she asked
herself, and then confirmed.
"Yeah ... 12:30."
She did not offer an excuse
for her lateness ... that will
come later. It was "just the
facts ma'am," and I didn't
fuss at her; I was not sure
what would happen, and I
didn't want to jeopardize any


DIRT ROAD DIARIES

future confessions.
Just for the record, she
comes by her sleep-talking
honestly. I talk and walk in
my sleep ... my parents had to
make sure to lock the dead
bolt on the front door when I
was a child or I would escape
in the middle of the night. I
was found on more than one
occasion standing in the liv-
ing room, my forehead
against the front door and my
hand on the knob, sound
asleep. I was simply led back
to bed to suffer the humilia-
tion of being teased the next
morning.
I have also been known to
completely strip the bed with
my husband in it, stuff all the
bed clothes in the bathtub and
turn the shower on them. I
remember this vividly; I was
having a dream that the bed
was on fire.
So, I have experienced not
only sleepwalking but sleep-
talking from both sides, and I
know how to take advantage
of it. My next question was
not of the truth-seeking vari-
ety, but an attempt to locate a
missing item. Sometimes a
sleep-talker is as good as a
hypnotized witness to a
crime; they are apt to remem-
ber things that they are not
aware they know.
"Have you seen my blue
notebook?" This notebook
has the notes for a feature
article in it, along with a pic-
ture provided by a subject for
the story. I haven't been able
to locate it in weeks.
There was another long
pause and I waited with bated
breath.
"Uh uh," she said, and I
grimaced and went back to
fact-finding by introducing a
question involving the latest
... and greatest ... household
mystery.

Nostalgic with the first whiff of spring, orange blossoms


When the first whiff of
orange blossoms waxes heavy
on the tree in the spring, I
reminisce about my younger
days of thievery in the groves,
when oranges actually grew
in Orange County.
My mother to this day will
not admit to her life of crime,
but I remember traces of guilt
skipping along my tender,
impressionable conscience
back then. As for Mom, she
has been known to perpetuate
her infectious escapades and,
if pressed, may even confess
to recently going next door
and plucking an orange or two
in the dark with a flashlight,
despite the two rottweilers
that live behind us.
However, I am happy to
report a life of repentance.
New neighbors since have
moved in and her poaching
has ceased. At least she has
left no evidence to her misde-
meanor.
When it came to stealing in
the orange grove in Maitland,
a suburb of Orlando, there
stood what you could almost
call an "attractive nuisance,"
if such a thing were known
back in those days. Those
were the times when people
took responsibility for their
own actions. Lawsuits were
few.
This "nuisance" was in
reality a delight, a "Tree of


Life," more suitably
known as the most
luscious, delectable
tangerine tree I ever
have enjoyed. The
orange grove that sur-
rounded it grew just
beyond our backyard
fence. This tree grew
leaf and limb above
any other in that Gra
grove. TO
The circumference Kath
of the trunk was
thicker than Paul Bunyan's
thigh. The top almost reached
to the spidery clouds in the
azure sky or at least that
was my recollection from a 5-
year-old's memory.
The fruit was sweeter than
confectioner's sugar. Held in
your hand, these wonderful
globes of juicy nectar gave
promise to satisfying in a
child's hungry heart. Tearing
off each section, membrane
by membrane, was like rip-
ping into your very own
Christmas stocking.
Right there on the spot I
would tear into my plunder.
The pungent essence of tan-
gerine squirted in every direc-
tion as the juice dribbled
down my chin. I spat the pits
like beebee gun pellets.
Did I mention my garb in
all this tomfoolery, as we dis-
guised our guilt? The sugar
sand in which citrus trees


al


y


thrive tends to swal-
low up tiny tots such
as me. I would hitch
up my cowboy boots,
but still had to dump
S the sand out when I
got home.
Our neighbor next
door would go with
not's my mother and me.
We all would carry
ne large paper sacks -
Grant then there was no
choice of plastic or ...
Whispering as we plucked
quickly, I knew any minute
the OJ Police would arrive
and book us for trespassing
and hunting without a license.
I just wondered how hand-
cuffs would fit my thin,
pathetic frame. I knew some
day my face would show up
on a milk carton and my life
would be spent on laying
down asphalt on searing,
relentless days near Alcatraz.
My mother and neighbor
dismissed their evildoing by
saying if God had not meant
for us to pluck from this tree
it would not be here in the
first place. I just innocently
stood there with my paper
sack yawning, as they kept
tossing the tangerines.
Plop. Plop. Plop.
Of course, when you are
stealing, there is no satisfying
the craving. There is no such


thing as one or two. We had to
pick up enough to fill an old-.
fashioned Florida sun porch.
Plop. Plop. Plop.
Now, there is a precise art
to picking citrus, and the deli-
cate tangerine in particular.
Many might bring scissors
and slice at the stem, such as
would a surgeon. We on the
other hard fell on the crude
side and tore them from their
screaming little tentacles.
Plop. Plop. Plop.
Lest anyone get any ideas
about stealing from commer-
cial orange groves today,
beware. Do not try this at
iomne. You really could get
arrested for trespassing.
Plop. Plop. Plop.
But I digress and will wend
my way back to the main
theme sweet, stolen fruit.
Giggling and whispering, we
merrily skipped and happily
took our harvest home. We
were satisfied. Until next
time.
Still, I grow nostalgic in the
spring at the first whiff of the
orange blossoms, when
oranges actually grew in
Orange County.

Nothing to fear

but fear itself

Editor:
We are constantly being
told to watch for the terror-
ists. Now we are told to
watch for them driving the
school bus.
I, for one, know that I have
a greater chance of being
killed while I am driving on
U.S. 27 because of some
drunk that has lost control of
the vehicle that person is
driving. There is even a
greater chance by far that I
will be killed because I am in
the wrong place at the wrong
time, such as during a drug
deal that has gone bad. I have
a far greater chance of dying
from complications of a flu
shot or even being struck by
lightning while playing golf
than dying at the hands of
some terrorist.
The government in
Washington has used the fear
stuff on us long enough. I, for
one, am very tired of these


pronouncements coming
from them. Some of us
remember the words of
Franklin D. Roosevelt, that
we have nothing to fear but
fear itself.
Being in a constant state of
fear is unhealthy and I do not
think people in Washington
understand how this constant
state of fear affects all of us.
I, for one, am sick and tired
of it.

Fall at store

proves costly

Editor:
On March 2, the wife and I
went shopping at (a local
store) and when leaving the
store, tried to go down the
sidewalk, but were blocked
by the Girl Scouts selling
cookies.
We went into the driveway
to get around the scouts,
when stepping up on the curb,
the wife had some trash from


the parking lot stick to her
shoe and her foot slipped off
the curb. She went down hard
and we had to call the para-
medics, who transported her
to Florida Hospital Heartland
Medical Center on a back-
board with a neck brace. She
had CAT scans, x-rays and
other tests. After this expen-
sive mess, we just found out
(the store) says they won't
pay, or even help and so
sorry, too bad.
We both are on Social
Security as our only source of
income and have no idea how
much this unexpected med-
ical expense will be.
With all the money we
spend with them, $3,000 to
$4,000 a year or better, their
attitude does not make me
want to spend a dime more.
I feel we cannot any longer
support buying from them. I
advise anyone who goes on
their property, or in their
store to watch out, you are on
your own, they will not pro-
tect you, or your possessions.
Help the local businesses


survive, keep the money at
home.

Case drawing

more attention
Editor:
The (Jean Claude) Meus
case is a case that has drawn a
lot of attention.
A meeting for the communi-
ty to express their feelings and
concerns was held Sunday
night at the China Buffet in
Avon Park. The response from
the community was united in
the many questions asked.
The main question was why
is this man in prison for an
accident? For that question
there is only one answer ...
there is no reason.
Some of the other questions
were, Why? What? Who? for
which there are many answers
and facts that are just coming
out.
Why was he charged with
vehicular homicide? Vehicular

homicide, according to the
statute of law and the criteria to
establish it, says that:
"Vehicular Homicide
"(1) Is the killing of a human
being, or the killing of a viable
fetus by any injury to the moth-
er, caused by the operation of a
motor vehicle by another in a
'reckless manner' likely to
cause the death of, or great bod-
ily harm to another.
"(2) At the time of the acci-
dent, the person knew, or
should have known that the
accident occurred: and
"(3) The person failed to give
information and render aid as
required by statute 316.062."
Meus was not operating his
vehicle in a reckless manner
and was reacting the way a
truck driver is trained to react in
an emergency situation.
Recklessness, which is the
standard to prove vehicular
homicide, was never proved at
trial, but he was still convicted.
Reckless driving carries a
sentence on the highest range
by a definite term of imprison-
ment not exceeding one year.
Vehicular homicide carries a
sentence on the highest range of
a term of imprisonment not
exceeding 15 years.
Why did the jury convict him
of vehicular homicide? The jury
had only two choices --guilty
or not guilty. The lesser charge
of reckless driving, which is the
standard to prove vehicular
homicide, was not given to the
jury. Recklessness was not
shown nor proven, but if the
jury had the option between
vehicular homicide or reckless
driving the outcome would
have surely been different.
Why was Meus not cited for
the accident and not charged for
15 months? The citation that
was written as information to


support the charge was not writ-
ten till August 2002, according
to the Florida Highway Patrol
records, and the charges were
filed on the same date, and was
never given to Meus.
Why, if the FHP investigat-
ing officer believed that vehicu-
lar homicide would be the
charge and there was probable
cause for such a charge, did he
not give Meus a citation or
arrest him at the time of the
accident or within the time the
investigation was finished
(three months).
Meus was cooperative with
the investigation and gave
statements to FHP the night of
the accident as well as two
weeks after the accident. He
was not charged and did not
seek counsel for his defense,
not knowing that a year and
three months later he would be
charged with such a crime and
have to defend himself. He was
told to go about his life as nor-
mal when he asked what else he
should do.
This is a major question and
likely reason for the delay in
charges, if Meus would have
known that he was going to be
charged with a such a crime for
an accident, he would have had
the opportunity to hire counsel
and collect the needed evidence
to defend the charge. and his
innocence. After 15 months
almost all of the evidence that
would have supported his state-
ment and innocence was no
longer available. This included
physical evidence as well as
documents.
The charges not being
brought for such a long period
of time makes other questions
come about: Was this intention-
al on the part of the state to
prejudice his opportunity to
defend himself? What would
be the motive for such an
action?
A civil suit that was filed in
the case one month before


charges were brought against
him was for awards in the mil-
lions, could this be a motive? A
million dollar bond would
insure that this injustice was
ascertained. ...
Another driver who admitted
that he had fallen asleep at the
wheel with a death involved
only got a citation,Thomas
Smith. Why should you charge
someone with a crime and only
give another a citation for an
accident if the evidence is the
same?
Why did a judge, who had
grown up only a few houses
away from the victim's family
and knew them personally and
professionally, have any partic-
ipation in any part of Meus'
case?
Every person has the right to
an impartial jury and trial no
matter what color, creed, reli-
gion, or origin they are, and
these laws that are part of the
constitution, and the judges and
prosecutors who are in place to
uphold these laws, have the
obligation to make sure they are
not violated.
Meus has filed motions con-
cerning these facts about said
judge and recently that judge
has recused off of the case. The
recent recusal should be proof
and a hearing of these facts
should be ordered by the court.
His participation in the case
prejudiced Meus' opportunity
to an impartial jury and fair trial
and a hearing will reveal these
facts. ...
Hasn't there been enough
injustice in this case already?
And hasn't Meus already paid
enough for a crime that was not
committed?
When did assumptions take
over for the truth? The assump-
tion that Meus was sleeping at
the wheel was the only thing the
prosecution relied on and yet he
was still convicted....

Disappointments
on the third day
As we left Ouray, we
drove past the Red
Mountains,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wi
ki/Red_Mountain_( Color
ado, a collection of three
mountain peaks of the
San Juan Mountain
Range. "The mountains
get their name from the
reddish iron ore rocks
that cover the surface,
and are the only peaks in
the area with such an
appearance. Nearby Red
Mountain Pass is named
after Red Mountain, and
the ghost town mining
camp of Red Mountain is
located at the foot of the
Red Mountains."
BJ and I headed for
Durango (www.duran
gogov.org/visitor/index.cf
m), by way of Silverton.
On my first trip to
Colorado, my family
stopped for lunch at
Silverton. At that time, it
was a thriving tourist
attraction where college
students spent the sum-
mer. There were gun-
fights at High Noon on
Main Street, saloons with
chorus girl shows, and
ragtime piano players
entertaining.
I was disappointed on
my trip with BJ that
those particular attrac-
tions were no longer
active, and Silverton had,
'in fact, become almost:a'
ghost town. "The year
round population of 500
is supported by tourism.
Over a quarter of a mil-
lion people visit town
each year. The booming
summers are balanced by
quiet, peaceful winters
(http://www.silvertoncol
orado.com/).
We had an unremark-
able lunch sitting in a
booth behind a real-life
cowboy. All I remember
about the meal was there
was a lot of food and the
cowboy ate with great
gusto. We decided not to
hang around in town any
longer. -No gunfights. No
dancing girls. There
were, however, gallows;
and when we saw that,
we knew it was time to
head out.
We arrived in Durango
just as the Silverton-
Durango train entered the
station. Our car hadn't
stopped rolling before BJ
was out of the car and
running to see the train
up close. She was disap-
pointed to find out that
reservations must be
made at least six months
in advance to be able to
ride the train.
Luckily, I was driving
when we hit the Colorado
/New Mexico border
because BJ fell.asleep
and never really woke up
until we made the camp-
ground.
Being an artist, BJ
wanted to explore Santa
Fe and Taos. Our next
destination was Aztec,
New Mexico. Because of
the town's name, we
were like the early
explorers, thinking that
the ruins there were from
the Aztec rather than the
Mesa Verde people
(www.americansouth
west.net/new_mexico/azte
c_ruins/national_monu
ment.html). We stopped
at an animal sanctuary
near Aztec that was
eccentric in its array of
rescued animals. We
should have realized right
then that our entire time
in New Mexico would be
a surreal experience.

ng drama of life of Christ


ims to Wauchul


: ;' By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun correspondent
WAUCHULA
nee again, hundreds of
People from Hardee
and surrounding coun-
Sties are hard at work as
they prepare for the 20th annual
production of The Story of Jesus.
This outdoor drama has cap-
tured the hearts of tens of thou-
sands of people of all ages, even
drawing national media attention
S over the years.
President and executive direc-
tor Mike Graham said that in the
.: beginning, 23 years ago, the per-
formance was only a depiction of
the crucifixion performed at a
Clearwater State Youth
'" Convention for about 2,000
teens.
"Since then it has grown and it
just gets better every year." he
said.
The first performance of the
season will be held today in the
.. Hardee County Cattlemen's
Arena with subsequent perform-
ances to be held every Friday
and Saturday night beginning at
8 p.m. (gates open at 6 p.m.).
The last performance will be on
Saturday. April 21.
Graham spends II months out
of every year planning and mak-
ing preparations for the next
year's play.

five weekends, a tremendous
amount of work and commitment
are needed to pull off this mov-
ing and unique presentation of
the life of Christ.
Participants, Graham said,
must make a four-month commit-
ment to the project.
"There are between 250 and
300 cast members," Graham said,
"including approximately 150
live animals. We have camels,
horses, goats, donkeys, sheep,
doves, and other animals.
"Most of them are privately
owned, but we rent the camels.
We've had the same camels for
17 years."
When asked what made this
drama different than others like
it, Graham said, "This is the only
one I know of that starts with the
Christmas story and continues


la today

through the life of Christ all the
way to the second coming. I
always liked encores, so we have
three different points at which
the play could end.
"Another thing we do which
makes it different than most is
the way in which we use the ani-
mals. We don't just parade them
across and then that's it, we use
them throughout the play. People
see them in many ways many
times."
Graham has always, and con-
tinues to strive to make the play
as authentic as possible. Every
aspect of the drama, from the set,
to the costumes, to the acting, to
the visual and sound effects are
carried out with extreme atten-
tion to detail and authenticity.
All of which combine to make
this production a supreme event
said by many to rival Broadway.
"We're committed to spreading
the Christian message. I like to
bring the Bible to life. The play
does that for everyone adults,
kids, all ages. I think that
Christian drama needs to be
brought to a higher level and
that's what we're trying to do,"
he said.
"To me the play really brings
the story of Jesus' life and what
he did for us to life," said
Vanette See, costume coordinator
and cast member of five years.

DIVERSIONS



A movie that would make the Spartans proud


The News-Sun www.newssun.com


There are some movies that
are simply passive experi-
ences. You sit down in your
seat, eat your popcorn, watch
people do things on screen
that are mildly interesting,
and then leave forgetting the
film as soon as you get up to
leave.
"300" is not that kind of
movie.
It's the kind of movie that
grabs your attention as soon
as the opening scene begins,
and keeps you riveted until
thlights in the theater come
up. In short, it's a movie that
reminds you why movies are
so fun.
The film, set in 480 B.C.,
tells the story of 300 Spartans
who battled the more than
100,000-man Persian army
for three days at the Battle of
Thermopylae. The Spartan
fighters who knew they are
impossibly outnumbered -
use their superior fighting
skills, smarts, toughness and
fearlessness to hold off the
Persians long enough for the
rest of the Greek armies to
come together and join the
fight.
The film focuses on
Spartan King Leonidas
(Gerard Butler). In the open-
ing scenes we see how
Leonidas was trained from
boyhood to become a brave
Spartan warrior, and as he
leads his army of well-trained
men into battle we see how
that training pays off.
While "300" is anything
but preachy, an underlying
theme of the film is about
bravery in the face of impos-
sible odds. The 300 Spartan
fighters don't care about glory
- they're fighting for the sur-
vival of their country and
their families. They never
retreat, they never surrender,
and they are more than will-
ing to fight to the death
against the Persian army led
by the self-declared "God-
King" Xerxes (Rodrigo
Santoro).
- And the fighting, which
makes up the majority of the
movie, is expertly choreo-

graphed and looks remarkably
realistic. Too many times in
cinematic fight scenes, the
fighting looks overly staged
(if not completely ridiculous).
But the hand-to-hand battles
in "300" look realistic enough
while showing just how much
better the Spartans' training is
than that of their Persian ene-
mies.
The movie is also full of
villains, some of which are
downright frightening.
Xerxes is portrayed as 8 feet
tall, and the Persian leaders
are shown as downright
frightening looking people
with a multitude of body
piercings in some pretty
painful places (and I'm still
not sure the piercings are his-
torically accurate).
The movie was shot in a
mere 60 days, in front of a
green screen in Montreal.
Only one shot in "300" a
quick scene involving horses
approaching Sparta was
filmed on location. The rest of


the time, the actors had the
unenviable task of performing
in a barren soundstage. But
despite the challenges, the
acting is solid and realistic.
But the film's achievement
is the mesmerizing computer-
generated scenery, which cre-
ates an almost surreal, dream-
like setting for the events in
the film. The movie is based
on a graphic novel by Frank
Miller (the man behind "Sin
City"), and the film plays like
a moving comic book thanks
to the stunning settings and
backgrounds.
"300" certainly earns its R
rating with its almost constant
violence. But because the
bloodshed was produced
entirely on a computer, it
comes across as almost car-
toon-like which makes it
more bearable for squeamish
people like myself.
Ultimately, "300" is every-
thing I love about seeing
movies on a big screen. It's
loud, in-your-face, and con-
stantly interesting. Even when
the movie slows down to
show more tender moments,
the film stays interesting -
unlike so many other histori-
cal films ("Pearl Harbor," for
instance).
The film is obviously
geared towards a young and
male audience, and Director
Zach Snyder (whose only
other directing credit was
2004's "Dawn of the Dead")
seems to know exactly what
that audience wants. The film
made more money at the box
office during the month of
March than any other movie
in history, and it opened as the


third-highest R-rated movie
ever.
And unlike recent movies
that are baffling in their popu-
larity ("Norbit" and "Ghost
Rider" are two that come to
mind), it's easy to see why
"300" has been so popular.
It's a movie that knows exact-
ly what it wants to be, and
knows exactly how to get
there. It's a movie that the
audience experiences, not just
watches, and it needs to be
viewed on the big-screen to
be fully effective. In other
words, don't wait for the
DVD.
In the end, a movie like
"300" isn't for everyone. It's
certainly not for children, and
it's certainly for those that
abhor the thought of onscreen
violence. But it is a movie
that is entertaining from
opening to closing credits,
and it's a movie that is about
more than just a grisly battle.
Near the film's conclusion,
the film's narrator asks the
audience to remember the
bravery of the Spartans.
Thanks to the cinematic
achievement that is "300,"
that shouldn't be a problem.

STORY
Continued from 1B
"It's not just a story out of
the Bible, it's a true story."
. The efforts of Graham and
others who contribute to
making this event a success
have not gone unnoticed.
"The play was featured at
the Institute of Outdoor
Drama, a national convention
of outdoor theaters, and
when we played our DVD
(an 18-minute recording of
highlights from The Story of
Jesus), we got the greatest
applause," Graham said. "It
was also featured on NBC
before and all the syndicated
stations across the nation one
year."
The feedback over the
years has been overwhelm-
ingly positive.
"Every year we constantly
hear from people that it's the
best play they've ever seen,"
Graham said. "It's really
more of an experience than
anything. It's such incredible
realism, very authentic.
We've tried to capture the
real thing. It's dirty, dusty,
very true to life."
People come from near
and far to experience this
remarkable performance.
"Someone called from
New Zealand for tickets the
other day," Graham said.
"It's really amazing."
While stories abound of
the impact this drama has
had on those who have expe-
rienced its wonder, Graham
said that every year he hears
of people who died after
leaving the show and accept-
ing Christ as their savior.
Those who have already
seen the play should be
aware that there are always
new scenes, changes and
improvements, making it
something worth seeing year
after year.


Knights of

Columbus

plan annual

Rosary for

Unborn Child
SEBRING -- Pope John
XX III council of the Knights
of Columbus will have its
annual Rosary for the Unborn
Child on Monday. For more
than 30 years the K. of C. has
been in the forefront of the
Right to Life movement.
Through rosary on.the Day of
the Unborn Child, Knights
have stood for those who can-
not stand up for themselves.
Each year, councils are
asked to renew their commit-
ment to this cause, this year
on Monday.
This event will be at noon
Monday at Knights of
Columbus Hall, 900 U.S. 27
North in Sebring (across from
the Lakeshore Mall). Light
refreshments will be served
after the rosary. All are invit-
ed.

II - ,


"We try to change it every
year so that people who've
seen it before can enjoy it
again," Graham said. "We
also have interpreters for the
hearing impaired. Every line
of the play is interpreted by
about 25 high school stu-
dents."
Ticket prices are $15 each
(some end seat tickets are
$11). Proceeds are reinvested
in the continuation of this
program. Tickets and other
information can be obtained
by calling (863) 375-4031.

D.C. nine takes advantage of Sebring miscues


By SCOTT DRESSEL
scott.dressel@newssun.coin
SEBRING Call it a mid-
season swoon.
After winning 13 of their
first 14 games of the season,
the Blue Streaks have stum-
bled through the last week,
making it three
straight losses St. A
Wednesday afternoon
when visiting St.
Albans of
Washington, D.C. left Seb
Firemen's Field with a 9
6-2 win.
"We're not playing
very well right now,"
Sebring coach Hoppy Rewis
said of'his Streaks, who.are
ranked ninth in the latest
Class 4A state poll. "I don't
know if they're a little tired
- we pride ourselves on the
fact we work on (baseball)


>r
z


year-round, and maybe that's
a mistake, I don't know.
Maybe it's asking too much
of them, but that's the way
we do it."
It was 1-1 game until the
top of the sixth, when a hit
batter and an errant pickoff
throw caused Rewis to
bans lift starter Adam
Simmons for Joey
DeSimone, who hit the
first batter he faced to
ing put two runners on
base.
A double to right-
center from Sam
Simons put St. Albans
up by a run, but DeSimone
seemed to be on his way out
of the jam when he struck out
the next two batters on six

Sebring first baseman Cory Ritter puts the on the tag to complete a pickoff of Matt Grieb of
St. Albans Wednesday at Firemen's Field.


Longosz lined a two-run sin-

Sebring got a run back on

But just as quickly as the refreshing
change came, things dried up just as fast as
the Crusaders came back for a 9-8 victory.
"I must be the worst coach in the whole
world, that's the way I figure it," Dragon
head coach Dan Coomes said. "When


you're up 8-0 in the first inning, you've got
to do things to win ball games so I'll take
the blame for that."
Things were looking a lot more rosy in
that first inning as Lake Placid was

the Red Devils to a 7-0 win over host Hardee. Billy Dobson hit an inside-the-park home run and L.T.
Galimba and Brad Gourley each drove in two runs as Avon Park won its eighth in a row after starting the
season 2-4.
25 YEARS AGO
March 22, 1982: The Sebring boys tennis team won its 11th straight match, topping visiting Santa
Fe, 7-0. Jeff Davis won his No. 1 singles match without losing a game, and teamed up with Paul Cruz to
do the same at No. 1 doubles. Steve Lynch and Paul McGehee breezed at No. 2 doubles with an 8-0 win.
Lynch, Cruz and McGehee each also won their singles matches, while Eddie Willis, at No. 2 singles, com-
pleted the sweep with a three-set match win.

bringing Wherry home and
when the Dade-Christian cen-
ter fielder misplayed
DeJesus' fly ball, Smith and
Myers scampered across.
Kyle Conklin then topped off
the inning with a single to
score Morrison and DeJesus.
From the mound, Sosa held
the Crusaders in check for the
first two innings before they
chipped into the lead with two
runs in the third.
The lead narrowed even
more as a combination of a
tiring Sosa and errors in the
field allowed five more runs
to come across in the fourth to
make it 8-7.
Lake Placid looked poised
to expand the lead in its half
of the fourth after loading the
bases with one out, but could-
n't capitalize.


Jamie Bexley came on to
pitch for the Dragons and
held the lead in the fifth, but
with one out in the sixth Dade
broke through.
Mike Perez was hit by a
pitch, stole second and moved
to third on a wild pitch before
Max Figueroa drew a walk.
Figueroa then broke for
second on a double steal and
when the throw got away, the
tying run came in.
Mat Orfely followed with a
double to score Figueroa and
give the Crusaders the lead
for good.
"At the beginning of the
season, I figured we'd be
about a .500 ball club by now,
but we're just not playing to
the level of our talent,"
Coomes said. "But there's a
second season left and I've
got to find something I've
got to do something to get
them to. respond in a better
way."

Like many of you out
there, my NCAA Bracket is
in shambles.
I dislike Duke as much as
the next guy, but even with
as bad as they were down the
i stretch, you had to think that
Mike Kryzewski had some-
thing up his sleeve.
I figured that would be a
nice sleeper pick that every-
one else would be discount-
S i ing which is why I had
them advancing to the Elite
Eight.
To quote Homer, "Doh!"
But even that isn't so bad,
"-c" sa since I have Kansas advanc-
Daniel Hoehne ing to the Final Four from
ies up to the West regional, meeting
day's 9-8 Florida from the Midwest
regional to see who goes to
the championship.
(Sorry Gator fans, I have
Kansas winning)
That's the left side of my
Final Four which is the side I
have to have faith in since
the right side of my bracket
has pretty much exploded.
I joined many on the
Kevin Durant bandwagon

And Another
Thing ...
Dan Hoehne
Kansas could be a tough
task.
A more assured repeat is
of this headline, dated March
29, 2006, "Cubs place
Prior, Wood on 15-day
DL."
Kerry Wood bruised his
chest when he fell out of his
hot-tub earlier this spring,
and now is having problems
with his triceps.
Mark Prior, meanwhile, is
apparently not able to throw
any pitch other than his fast-
ball for strikes, with fast
being a relative term as he is
struggling to get it above the
mid-80s.
These one-time phenoms
have been snake-bit since the
Cubs colossal playoff melt-
down of '03, Texas gets
bounced in round two of the
tournament and Duke doesn't
make it out of the first round.
Three, two, one...seems
kind of fitting.

Continued from 1D
10 hits, nobody recognizes all
those stupid mistakes you
make. That's the key: we're
just not hitting the ball right
now. Probably nobody takes
more cuts and work's on it
more than we do."
After giving up an
unearned run in the top of the
fourth, the Streaks had a
chance to take control of the
game with St. Albans starting
left-hander Danny Hultzen
out of the game in the bottom
of the frame. Chaz Abeln
greeted the new pitcher with a
leadoff homer to right-center
and Charlie Peck followed
with a double to right.
After a line-drive out to
center field, Cody Higgins hit





-m
Z iI-L


a double to left-center, but
Peck was thrown out at the
plate to keep it a 1-1 game.
"We ended up getting them
right where we wanted them,
and then didn't do anything,"
Rewis said. "You go in a lull
(at times), you just don't
expect them to all go in a lull
at the same time.
"At the beginning of the
year, somebody would make a
mistake and somebody would
step up and pick him up. Now,. il, "
it seems like we make a mis- '
take and then we get two
strikeouts and a pop-up. That
can't happen."
