At ages 90 and 104, these are not your typical roommates

SEBRING
A t 90 and 104, housemates
Ursula Albecker and Mike
Caballaro are enjoying life
S to the fullest.
It wasn't always this way.
The pair have found it easy to
cohabitate in the house that Albecker
shared with her late husband, who
passed away in 2000 after 63 years of
marriage.
Caballaro found himself in a similar
situation, losing his wife a few years
prior to that.
"It's terrible to live alone. You have
ino,one to talk to; you do the same
thing over and over again, you just
about give up," Albecker said.


Fast
Forward


"There's nothing else to do."
Three years ago, Caballaro sold his
Buttonwood Bay home, looking for a
smaller place at the age of 101.
He needed a place to stay in the
meantime because his new place
wouldn't be available until after he
needed to move out.
Albecker, who was losing her sight
to macular degeneration, offered up
her house to her acquaintance for a
month when she was away training a
guide dog, and the rest is history.
Caballaro had the house to himself
for a month and the two have been
living together for more than three
years now.
"When I came home he had dinner
ready," Albecker recalled, "Winston
(the guide dog) took to him right


I(pwT[N


away."
Albecker was using the extra room
for crafts, but since she has been grad-
ually losing her sight since 1983 there
was no longer a need for it, she said.
Caballaro lost his hearing over the
years, so the pair take care of each
other and make the best of their situa-
tion.
"I do all I can for her and appreci-
ate her," Caballaro said. "We are just
like brother and sister and that's how I
like it."
Both do their share to help, catering
to each other's weaknesses while
using their strengths.
"I go by feel, so Mike knows to
keep the house in the same order and

CRAto fund

completion of

Main Street

beautification
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christophertuffley @newssun, com
AVON PARK Members
of the Main Street
Community Redevelopment
Agency Advisory Board met
in special session Thursday to
unanimously recommend
funding the completion of the
long-planned Main Street
sidewalk beautification proj-
ect.
The support was offered
even though several members
indicated they felt they had
no real say. That is because
the board has been shifted to
an advisory capacity in
order to conform to state
mandates and the city
council, serving as CRA, is
now responsible for the dis-
persal of funds.
David Cornell, chairman of
the advisory board, said
because of the change it did-
n't matter what the advisory
board said. The city council
could go ahead and do what it
liked.
"Your recommendations
have more weight than you
give yourselves credit,"
Maria Sutherland, the city's
project manager, replied.
She told the advisory board.
that the city had already spent
$150,000 and that "it would
be a huge loss if we threw in
the towel."
Sutherland brought the
members up to date with the
CRA's finances. After sub-
tracting $96,257 for current
obligations, she said there
was still $106,420 on hand.
That did not include another
$28,000 exclusively for
facade grant funding.
"There are cushions in all
(Main Street) CRA accounts,
and the money that will arrive
in November also isn't taken

County commission to listen to presentations, auditor's report


* Visit www.newssun.com for pro-
posed action steps toward goals.
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING NCT Group bor-
rowed eight findings from the
Highlands County Library System
audit in drafting its management let-
ter to the board of commissioners.
Julie Fowler, of NCT Group, is
scheduled to give a financial presen-
tation during Tuesday's commission
meeting and assistant county admin-
istrator Rick Helms is expected to ask


the board to approve the management
responses.
Raymond McIntyre, property
appraiser, was invited to report on his
trip to Tallahassee, where he partici-
pated in property tax discussions.
In addition to several public hear-
ings, county administrator Carl Cool
will present the proposed action steps
toward the board's goals.
Dated Jan. 19, the NCT Group let-
ter included nine findings worthy of
recommendations to improve finan-
cial management, accounting proce-


dures and internal controls.
NCT Group recommended top-
level reviews throughout the year of
all accounts in all funds as part of the
county's checks and balances.
The recommendation resulted from
a finding that the employee benefit
reinsurance recovery receivable
account had a balance of $64,349,
which hasn't been updated since
1999.
"It is unlikely that this money will
be collected," the letter said, NCT
Group suggesting non-collectible


funds could be written off.
The external auditor said the fol-
lowing library audit findings were
material to its audit of the county's
financial state: violation of Florida
Statute 119.021, deletion of asset
records; unreliable asset record data-
base; inadequate disposal policy,
assets are unilaterally purchased,
received and disposed; unauthorized
disposal of $30,000 from the Sebring
Library; violation of Florida Statute
274.05, failure to list values and con-

Students

urged to

participate

in Law Day

By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
Law Day is approaching
and to celebrate the
Highlands County Bar
Association is sponsoring
numerous activities during
the next month.
The events, culminating
with the celebration of the
seventh annual Highlands
County Law Day, feature
activities for students as
well as the rest of the com-
munity.
Later in April two free
public seminars will be
held, covering the topics of
Florida landlord tenant
laws on Monday, April 16,
and Florida living wills,
health care surrogates and
durable powers of attorney
on Tuesday, April 17.
"I have been working in
the courthouse for 25 years
and when we started this I
learned a lot going there
myself," Law Librarian
Nancy Thomas said. "We
select the questions that are
most asked in the law
library."
Both seminars will be
held from 5:15-6:30 p.m. at
the Sebring Civic Center.
"We should have plenty
of room," Thomas said.
"But the seminars have first
come first served handouts
and seating."
Two contests open to stu-
dents countywide from ele-
mentary to high school fea-
ture "Liberty under law:
Preparing youth, assuring
democracy" as the theme.
Students will have to act
. fast to meet the contest
deadline Tuesday, with
entries due to the Justice
Parker Lee McDonald Law
Library at the Highlands
County Courthouse by 5
p.m.
Both contests have the
same deadline and topic,
one being a poster contest
for students to showcase
their artistic abilities, the
other an essay contest for
those more interested in
expressing thoughts on the
topic with words.
Members of the local Bar
Association traveled to 14
classrooms to promote the
contests, which will feature
accolades in the Olympic
fashion, awarding gold, sil-
ver and bronze medals to
each of the top three
entrants in both contests,
covering five categories
from grades Kindergarten
to first to grades 9-12.
For more information on
the free seminars or contest
rules, contact Nancy
Thomas at 402-6621.

REAL Il


By KEVIN J. SHUTT

SEBRING Have a busi-
ness idea for Highlands
County? Get Real.
University of South
Florida's Small Business
Development Center would
rather you sign up for the
Rural Entrepreneurship
through Action Learning
(REAL) program.
Due to a lack of skill, funds
or both, about 80 percent of
new businesses fail in their
first five years, Bill McKown,
certified business counselor,
said.
"We want to intercede to
get that number down," he
said Friday, introducing the
REAL program.
What sets REAL apart from
other programs McKown
offers is "action learning,"
during which students will get
hands-on experience deter-
mining whether their business
idea is appropriate for the
Highlands County market.
Local bankers, attorney's
and certified public account-
ants will be brought in
throughout the three-month
course to discuss all areas of a


Thomas Jefferson founded

which Andrew Jackson built.
"We've become too
diverse, if that's possible,"
Thomas said, explaining that
his party strayed from its core
as have Republicans.
He welcomes diversity, but
said the party must focus on
the important issues educa-
tion, health care, veterans and
environment.

nlnl for


business startup or expansion,
McKown said.
Students will learn how to
define their market, establish
an operation from staff to
stock, produce cash-flow
statements and conduct a
break-even analysis.
"Our goal is to help them
develop a completed business
plan that would be of a high
enough quality to bring to a
bank," McKown said.
Using tools and knowledge
they gain from the course, he
expects students to discover
themselves whether they have
a feasible business for a given
market.
The first class is expected
to be in May and enrollment
is open. Registration is $100,
and classes are expected to be
three hours per night for 12
weeks.
Location will be deter-
mined based on the market,
McKown said, explaining that
his office serves Highlands,
DeSoto and Hardee counties.
Classes will be held where
interest is strongest. For more
information, McKown can be
reached at 385-3672, ext.

Your memory is our keepsake
with which we'll never part
God has you in his keeping
we have you in our hearts
Sadly missed by your baby girl,
Little Grammie,
family, friends
and those who
knew
and love you

Museum

celebrates

Florida

Heritage
Special to the News-Sun
CLEWISTON Florida
has designated the period
March 15 through April 15,
Florida Heritage Month A
Celebration of Florida's
Spirit. The goal is to encour-
age a better understanding of
and appreciation for Florida's
history and culture among the
people of this state. This
month-long tribute will
heighten awareness of the
state's rich cultural heritage,
celebrating its historical sites,
museums, libraries, and the
visual and performing arts.
In observance of this pro-
gram, The Clewiston

hunters" throughout the cen-
tral ranching region of South
Florida. The program will
include insights into the
struggles of the pioneer
ranchers and how they carved
a life in the wilds of Florida

toes, panthers and snakes.

behavior of many dozens of
species such as: Long-wattled
Umbrellared, Red-winged
Wood-Rail, Fieryheaded
Fruiteater and Bluish
Flowerpiercer. These are
species of birds unknown to
most "birders" in the United
States, whicl should make
the Gelis presentation most

said.
She suggested help for the
project didn't have to come as
a lump sum. "You could
spend incrementally, it's
another way to skin the cat
without taking a hard hit."
Mayor Sharon Schuler also
was on hand to address the
members. She explained that
part of the problem has been a
frustrating bidding process
over several years.
There have been three sep-
arate designs, she said, each
of which drew bids far over
the project's budget. She
added that every time the
plans were reworked and
down-sized, but this time
only one bid had been offered
and the city was still short
$160,000.
Cornell expressed concern
that that amount of money
would drain the Main Street
CRA's resources. He had
hoped to have a workshop to
line up future projects.
"For the first time comple-
tion of this project is within
our grasp," Schuler said. She
reminded the members that
CRA funds come with a dead-
line. Money not used by a cer-
tain time would have to be
returned to general coffers.
"What better use for (Main
Street CRA funds) than to use
them on the downtown street
program?" she asked. "What
better project could the CRA
have?"
She added that the project
was a sore point for many res-
idents. "It's brought up at
every council meeting, and
the chamber (of commerce)


erative projects.
Count management con-
curred with the findings,
promising to fix what hasn't
already been.
"The recommendations
made in the preceding annual
financial audit report have
been corrected," NCT Group
said.

Albecker siid. "We can relate

Florida's got milk and somebody has to haul it


Southeast Milk


moves 700,000


gallons per day
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun. cor
AVON PARK Southeast Milk
Inc. is a dairy cooperative that was
formed to market and deliver its
members' product. In addition to col-
lecting and moving raw milk, it
negotiates the best price for its mem-
bers.
There have been organizations of
this type in Florida since the 1930s,
said Tom Pittman, Southeast Milk's
director of milk accounting.
Southeast Milk was created in
1998 as the result of a merger of two
older cooperatives and serves farm-
ers in six southern states Florida,
Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina,
Alabama and Louisiana but
Florida and Georgia have the main
body of producers.
Pittman said the co-op's farmers in
Florida produced 170 million pounds
of, milk in February, or 20 million
gallons. That translates to 700,000
gallons a day, with Southeast drivers
averaging 117 loads a day.
The U.S. Department of
Agriculture monitors the top 23
milk-producing states, and Florida is
one of them (the only co-cop mem-
ber state that is).
However. as impressive as its
numbers sound, Florida only places
16th out the 23.
'By way of comparison, California
produced 3,174 million (or 3.174 bil-
lion) pounds of milk in February, and

Randall Grimes.takes a sample of raw milk from his tanker.
He has been driving for Southeast Milk Inc. for 14 years.
Having grown up in Wauchula, Grimes got into trucking
almost by accident at the urging of a friend. He began driv-
ing cattle over the road out West, but left that for milk after
19 years. Milk is easier to transport, he said, because cattle
never stop moving. Plus he likes being home every night.


Wisconsin 1,857 million pounds.
That makes them the top two produc-
ers in the nation by a large margin.
New York, which came in third, pro-
duced 933 million pounds.
Florida milk production has lost a
little ground over time, Pittman said,
mostly the result of development
along the 1-4 corridor.
Milk prices have risen slightly
moving into the spring, he added, but
not enough to benefit farmers.
The problem, he explained. is that
the price of feed also is rising higher


and faster than the price of milk and
farmers are having difficulty keeping
up.
Ironically, the effort to attain ener-
gy independence is at the heart of
that problem as grain growers sell
more of their corn to ethanol energy
producers, leaving less for livestock.
For years, America led the world.
in production of milk, but according
to www.indiandairy.com, India took
over the lead in 2000, producing 78
million ions to. he 71 million .tons
produced in the U.S. Russia,


Pakistan and Brazil fill out the top.
five.
According to the USDA, con-
sumption of milk has fallen dramati-
cally since World War II, but cheese
is more popular. In 2001, Americans
on average ate 30 pounds of cheese
per person, eight times more cheese
.than was eaten in 1909.
Whole milk consumption in 2001
(the most recent year available)
dropped to less than eight gallons per
person, down from a high in 1945-of
41 gallons of whole milk per person.

You've got to get

up early to catch

this milky way
When the alarm went off at 3:30
a.m. and I groped blearily for my
glasses, I did wonder why I'd
sought out this assignment.
I was scheduled to be at the dairy
cooperative Southeast Milk's stag-
ing yard by 5, where I was going to
ride with Randall Grimes, a veteran
milk tanker driver.
Huddled on my scooter in the
pre-dawn dark of a bone-chilling
morning, I decided I'd been crazy.
Fortunately, there is something
about being up that early in the
morning that makes a person feel
virtuous and productive especial-
ly when the sky shades to gray and
then pink.

YOUR LOVED ONES WILL LOVE THIS.
When you gather your family together this Easter,
S everything should be absolutely perfect. And 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 RECIPE, OUR 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.


Publix.

Show chorus

does it again
Editor:
My wife and I recently had
the pleasure of attending the
annual show put on by the
"Heart of Highlands Show
Chorus" from Avon Park. We
have attended their shows for
the past few years but this
one was, by far, the best per-
formance we've ever seen.
The chorus, under the
direction of the fabulous Joy
Loomis, was outstanding. So
were the local quartets. The
program was well scripted
and added just enough humor
to keep the show moving. The
music also gave evidence that


loads of preparation went into
the performance. Their
choice of guest quartets was
great and the two groups that
sang added icing to the cake.
During the show, the cho-
rus sang the two numbers
they will be competing with
in a few weeks. If they sing
them as well in competition
as they did in the show, they
should receive very high
scores.
If you've not taken the
time to hear this superb local
group, I'd highly recommend
that you hear them at the very
next opportunity.

Auntie Mamma' enjoys her new role


"Auntie Mamma," as she is
affectionately called by her
niece/stepchildren, is a grand-
mother and new bride.
However, she did not dream
that she would remarry fol-
lowing her husband's death.
Arvie, her first name,
became widowed five years
ago after being happily mar-
ried for more than 20 years.
Following her grieving peri-
od, the unexpected happened.
She began to gain the atten-
tion of her brother-in-law
Sylvester. They started dat-
ing, fell in love, and with the
blessings of both sets of chil-
dren, got married.

family. She said the family
remained intact and described
this as wonderful.


Daily I encounter many

They speak of their triumphs

News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Randall Grimes catches up on his paperwork as milk is pumped into the truck's tank. A hose is pulled
through a hole in the wall of the pump room. The pump room protects the front of the storage tanks,
where the hook-ups and tank access are located. The valve that connects the hose to the tank, is at the
bottom. A ladder to the top of the tank rises just above it.


TUFFLEY
Continued from 11
Avon Park, I was prepared to
forgive myself the folly.
And when I swung out of
the cab at the first farm we
stopped at, and the smell of
hay and cows hit me, I was
actually glad I was along for
the ride.
Grimes spends his days col-
lecting milk from the dairies.
He brings it back to the staging
yard where other drivers shut-
tle it to the processors.
Because cows are milked
twice a day come hell or high
water, and there are strict dead-
lines about how long milk can
sit in a tank (72 hours),
Southeast runs its trucks all
day, every day. The earliest
shift starts at 1 a.m.
Cool weather creates a busy
season, as cows produce more
milk at that time. Grimes was
going to make four runs that
Monday, for a 12-hour day.
I tagged along for his first
two pick-ups C.R. Melear
and V&W Farms. Both lie just
across the Hardee County line
west of Avon Park.
SGrimes' job, while repeti-
tive, has several challenges.
First is making sure the milk
is loaded safely. What with the
recent scares about spinach and
pet food, it was reassuring to
see how seriously Grimes took
his work.
Dairies are very dirty places
- there are good reasons
farmers wear high rubber boots
when they work around their
animals.
But the barn, while next to
the pump room, is completely
separate from it.
And the pump rooms -
with their plain concrete floors,
white walls and stainless steel
equipment are spotless.
Each farm had two large
stainless steel tanks. One is
always being filled, while the
other is being emptied.
The tanks stand about 12
feet high and hold about 6,000
gallons. They each have a lad-
der to climb to the top where
there is a round opening for
access. Fortunately, the open-
ings aren't large enough for an
adult to easily fit through,
because when the tank is filled
the milk comes right up to the
top and a person could drown
in the tank.
Grimes let me climb up and
look at the milk, although he
warned me to not drop my
toothpick into it. The liquid
was pure white and slightly

Small business

seminar planned

on Wednesday
SEBRING The Small
Business Development
Center of the Heartland will
present a free seminar called
Steps To Start A Small
Business from 2-4 p.m.
Wednesday at the Heartland
Workforce Center, 2730 U.S.
27 North.
The seminar will be taught
by Bob Raymond, a certified
business analyst with the

It is designed for people
thinking of starting a small
business or those who have
started a business and want to
make sure they did it correct-
ly.
Licenses, marketing and
business plans are among the
items discussed.


chunky on top.
I don't like milk myself,
either its taste or the odor,
which is why I was surprised it
smelled good and a little like
yogurt.
When I mentioned that to
Grimes he said the milk smells
different from one farm to
another, depending on what the
cows are fed.
Climbing to the top, he
checked the temperature of the
milk and ladled a small sample
into a canister the size of a pre-
scription bottle. That is kept in
a cooler with the driver and
later sent tb a lab to be
checked for bacteria or any
other problems. He takes sam-
ples from the farmer's tank and
again after it's loaded into his
truck.
That way, if something is
wrong, the problem can be
traced to the source.
Once he checked the tem-
perature and took the sample,
Grimes hooked up the pipeline
and puip. The different farms
have slightly different systems,
but the routine in the same. It
is the tanker driver who puts
the pipeline together and
breaks it down after loading.,
While he rinses and sanitizes
every piece before and after
using it, farm hands do the
heavy cleaning.
Grimes hosed down the


floor after he was done,
because everything, including
milk, drains out onto it.
It takes about an hour and a
half per visit to complete the
process, with the bulk of the
time spent putting the pipe line
together and cleaning up.
But collecting the milk is
actually the easiest part of the
job. It's much more challeng-
ing driving it down the road.
Being liquid, the milk doesn't
stop when the truck does, and
it takes getting used to all that
sloshing around. That is one
reason Southeast only hires
drivers who have at least two
years of regular driving experi-
ence. Andwhy all drivers start
out shuttling tankers from the
staging yard to the processors.
The two main processing
plants are in Lakeland and
Deerfield.
It takes extra training and
state certification to be able to
load milk into the tanker.
Certification lasts for two
years.
Drivers are liable for their
product on the road. State
inspectors may stop them at
any time and ask to see the
samples or check rhe tempera-
ture themselves. ,. i"-
Pay depends up6n experi-
ence, but milk collection driv-
ers make more than those who
simply shuttle the product.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Trodden path
My husband, Ken, and
I like setting out into the
unknown of a hiking trail
where we've never been
before. What's around the
next bend, we wonder?
What beautiful sights
await us?
Yet, even in anticipat-
ing the surprises that will
come, the fact that we're
traveling a well-worn,
trodden path is reassur-
ing. It is evident by the
packed dirt and little sign
posts. Many have trav-
eled this way before.
And others formed the
trail even before it was
open to the public.
So, though it is new to
us, it is a trodden path.
Recently in reading
Psalm 1: 6, NIV, these
words took on new life as
I learned a deeper mean-
ing for the word used for
"way" in this passage.
"For the Lord watches
over the way of the right-
eous ..."
It means "trodden
path." That helps.me in
setting off on a new way
in life.
How often have I been
called to walk what
. -. .- seems an untrodden path :
to me a path on which
I've never traveled
before? Yet, if I have
committed myself to God
through faith in Jesus
Christ, the path is well-
trodden. He is my leader
and he always goes
before.
Consequently, though
new to me, it is trodden.
There have been some
hikes in which we have
come upon areas where
the path is obscure. At
these times, we have to
stop and evaluate. By
pausing to deliberate and
concentrate, we usually
see what has been right
in front of us all along.
That hasn't been an
unusual discovery in life
either.
I've set out on a new
path assured the Lord is
leading. My hand is in
his and I confidently
move forward. However,
along the way, I've per-
haps become too confi-
dent and let go of his
hand. All of a sudden, the
trodden path seems to
end and the next step is
less discernable.
It's then I must stop
and pray with the
Psalmist in Psalm 27: 11,
NIV, "Teach me your
way, O Lord; lead me in
a straight path ..." the
meaning of which is also
trodden. As I place my
hand in his strong one
again, the confusion
leaves and what has
seemed obscure is sud-
denly revealed.
Knowing our Lord is
the Great Trailblazer and
has led many before us is
comforting. It also gives
us a sense of adventure in
serving him. And the
Bible says of those who
have gone before us that
they are like a great
cloud of witnesses cheer-
ing us on along the way.
As long as we go in his
presence, we will know
.his rest on the trodden
path. Selah.

Highlands Orchid Society hosting "


show starting March 31


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
Orchids have an undeniable
mystique as nature's most
alluring flower. Ed Fabik's
love affair with with nature's
flower of distinction started 30 years
ago when his brother-in-law worked at
the Botanical Society in Chicago.
"He got me started with six to eight
orchids. I killed most of them before
joining the Sunrise Orchid Society.
Now I have 500, and a variety of differ-
ent species," Fabik said.
After moving to the Sebring area, he
became president of the Orchid Society
of Highlands County in 2000. The origi-
nal 35 members Fabik inherited have
now grown to 250.
Some of those will be on display
March 31-April 1 at the Highlands
County Orchid Society show. The doors
will be open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
each day. For the $2 admission, one can
enjoy display s of orchids from
- Highlaids Count), Lakeland and
Orlando's societies. The certified judges
take into consideration the flower's size,
shape, color and other criteria for the
different species .
Flowers will be sold as well as sup-
plies and monogrammed shirts. There
will be seminars, door prizes and raf-
fles. The 4-H will provide hamburgers
and hot dogs. Six venders from Tampa,
Fort Lauderdale, Myakka, Deland,
Okeechobee and Lake Placid will offer
orchids for sale starting at $7.
Anyone interested in growing orchids
should join the Orchid Society or at
least make a visit to the show, according
to Bill Ross, a endor from Lake Placid..
"You must first know the exact type
of plant you have, how much light it
prefers, and how wet it wants to be.
Most orchids around here can't tolerate
salt. If you're a novice, join the Orchid
Society so fellow members can guide
you with valuable information from the
start. Buy orchids from nurseries and
growers because they will provide
information and detailed care on any
specific plant chosen.
"This event is a great way to get
started and meet people who are active
in our local society."
Ross carries approximately 3,000
orchids worth more than $50,000 in his
greenhouse. Orchids are more than an
investment or exotic hobby they're
his passion, with the Jewel Box
Cattleya his favorite.
He especially enjoys hybridizing

orchids and is a patient man. After he
propagates them from seed or a stem
culture and puts them in a test tube, it
might take five years before he ever
sees a bloom. Out of 200-300 he creates
this way, he will pick only five or six
that are the best looking. These he takes
to an AOS-sanctioned show or to its
headquarters to be judged and hopefully
awarded. Then he can put a name on
that plant, which is referred to as a sport
plant and creates value for a specific
orchid.
His newest creation, phalaenopsiss
bellina" (Lorette Ross) recently won an
award of merit from the American -
Orchid Society.
"This specimen plant is named after
one of my daughters. It's worth $200.
Right now everything in my greenhouse
is blooming all different colored
phalaenopsis, cattleyas, dendrodium and
superbiums," Ross said.
He can be reached by e-mail at awe-
someorchids@earthlink.net, or call 699-
2061 to schedule an appointment for a
personal tour of his greenhouse and
orchids.
Beth Lamb is a fourth-generation
Floridian, born and raised in Orlando,
who moved to Sebring in 1985. "I can
thank my grandparents for my interest

in plants in gener- W
al. When I was in
sixth grade, I had a green
thumb and an eye for pretty plants,"
Lamb said.
While in middle school she worked at
a nursery. "The owner did hybridization
and he showed me how. It was fascinat-
ing why certain traits turn out a certain
way," Lamb said.
At the University of Florida, she
received a master's degree in plant
pathology with a specialty in plant
virology (diseases). Her private consult-
ing firm advises the horticulture indus-
try o'n propagation and plant tissue cul-
tures, often trouble-shooting at their
onsite plant labs.
"I maintain a collection, but most are
breeding stock," Lamb said. "I like all
orchids. Cattleya (corsage orchids) are
beautiful, but the genera of slipper
orchids and phalaenopsis are my
favorites."
Orchids belong to a huge family of
plants,called Orchidaceae. What sepa-
rates them from all other plant families
is the way they package their pollen in
small waxy bundles called pollinia
- for collection by visiting insects. By
this unique system, no pollen grains are
lost. Instead, insects carry pollen from
one orchid to another, thereby fertilizing
their flowers.
People grow more hybrids than
species for various advantages. Two
rather temperamental species can, when
crossed, produce a vigorous and easily
grown hybrid. As well as growing more
quickly, hybrids often flower earlier and
more freely and are more tolerant of
less than ideal conditions. A grower
may want a particular flower color on a
certain size plant that will grow well in
conditions offered. They are also cheap-
er and more readily available.
When Dan DeCausey moved here 12
years ago, he brought 30 orchids with
him. After attending an auction at The
Orchid Society of Highlands County, he
not only bought more orchids, he also
joined their club.
Today, his greenhouse is devoted to
his personal collection of 600 orchids.
"I like species plants like cattleyas.
My favorites are the oddball stuff.
Paphiopedilums have nice big flowers.
Coelogynes have big flowers and a nice
smell and the epidendriums and bulbo-
phyllum appeal to me because of their
unusual shapes," DeCausey said.
His other hobby is making furniture
and wooden display pieces for his
orchids. For the upcoming Sebring
show, he created the wooden trolley
filled with orchids that will decorate the
entrance.
The Orchid Society of Highlands
County meets at 7 p.m. on the fourth
Monday of each month at the Highlands
County Agri-Civic Center in Sebring.
The cost to join is $20 for a family and
$15 for an individual.
Speakers at the meetings give presen-
tations on different species, culture,
growing tips and care. Members even
bring their blooming plants for every-
one to enjoy and there's also a monthly
newsletter. They give presentations at
nursing homes, garden clubs and South
Florida Community College. They also
provide a scholarship for any student in
Highlands County who is furthering his
or her education in horticulture or
botany.
The Orchid Society sponsors trips
throughout the year to the Miami
Orchid Show, Redlands Orchid Festival
in Homestead and Octoberfest at EFG
Orchids in Deland or the AOS
Headquarters in Delray Beach. Each
member is given an orchid from Hawaii
at Christmas.
For more information, call Fabik at
465-2830 or e-mail him at orchid
manl24@yahoo.com.

Orchid tips

By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
Orchids are the largest group of
flowering plants in nature. There
are 25-30,000 identified species
with new species being discovered
each year. In addition, there are
more than 120,000 hybrids regis-
tered with the Royal Horticultural
Society.
With so many choices, there's an
orchid for everyone's taste and,
according to the U.S. Department
of Agriculture, orchids are second
in sales behind poinsettias.
Phalaenopsis, or moth orchid, is
a favorite because of its easy main-
tenance and blooms that last for
months at a time. Summer is prime
time for blooming vibrant-colored
phalaenopsis and as an extra bene-
fit, they are frequently fragrant.
The white ones command attention
because of their simple, pure beau-
ty.
Vandaceous orchids, commonly
referred to as "vandas," are sum-
mer-flowering orchids. They
require warm temperatures and
bright light to flower.
The cattleya is among the most
popularly grown. It's the traditional
corsage orchid and comes in many
colors, shapes, forms and sizes.
Light is one of the most important
factors in growing and blooming
them, which means an east, shaded
south (as with a sheer curtain) or
west window in the home would be
ideal.
Cymbidiums are prized for their
long-lasting sprays of flowers and
are sought after because of their
easy care. There are two types:
standards and miniatures. Although
standards don't flower easily in
South Florida, miniatures are more
tolerant of heat and flower freely
from mid-summer to Christmas.
Keep the plant outside in high light
and water and fertilize regularly.
These orchids also grow as epi-
phytes (on trees), lithophytes (on
rocks) or as terrestrials (in the
ground) in a variety of light expo-
sures. When summer arrives,
choose a spot with filtered sun, like
beneath a tree or on a screened
patio.

When choosing plants
Make sure they are well rooted
and firm in their pot or basket, and
that they have attractive and well-
presented flowers and a legible
label.
Try to buy plants that have
been delivered that day, so that they
haven't been sitting in less-than-
ideal conditions for a length of
time.
Bring them home promptly and
crack car windows on the way so
they don't bake in the hot interior.
Once home, have a good look
at their condition and make adjust-
ments. Be sure to ask for specific
watering and fertilizing instructions
- especially for the summer -
and immediately begin the regimen.

Concert Band plays season finale Monday


Courtesy photo
Bryan Johnson and the Heartland Symphony Orchestra are planning the next concert for 7
p.m. Tuesday at Lake Placid Middle School. Students of both the middle and high schools
are showing off their skills in various combinations. Larry Glenzer plays trumpet and French
horn in the orchestra and is the Lake Placid Middle School music director as well.

Heartland Symphony Orchestra expands horizons


SEBRING The Heart-
land Symphony Orchestra has
been looking into traveling
around the state. Perhaps
Jacksonville, Key West or
Orlando is in tap?
No, that would be quite too
far, but Lake Wales is possi-
bly close enough for a concert
next year. Also, a concert at
Sebring's Sun 'N Lake
Middle School might be
scheduled.
It has been decided to play
at the combined Lake Placid
Middle School and Lake
Placid High School's Spring
Concert at 7 p.m. Tuesday this
year.
The Heartland Symphony
Orchestra will play first. The
first number will be the


Highlands County Concert
Band's season finale will be
Monday at South Florida
Community College
Auditorium. Doors open at
6:30 p.m. Early arrivals will
enjoy the music of The
Skylarks Dance Band prior to
the concert.
After the playing of the
national anthem, the band will
begin with a toe tapping
march by Harry C.
Thompson, titled "Hand To
Hand."
A trumpet fanfare intro-
duces the next piece by
Rimsky-Korsakoff, "The
Czar's March," from the
opera "The Tale of Czar
Saltan."
Kim Houser is one of the


featured soloists playing "The
Wren Polka" for solo piccolo
and concert band. This opus
was composed by Eugene
Damare at the brink of what is
now referred to as "The
Golden Age of the Piccolo" in
1880.
A slow blues gets into the
next number by Albert Davis
called "The Three Cardinals."
This piece features trumpet
players.
Highlights from the musi-
cal "Hawaii" arranged by
Frank Erickson allows vari-
ous sections an opportunity to
showcase- these beautiful
melodies.
The title of the next number
of Conn Humphreys and
Charles Payne gives a clue as


to the featured section -
"Clari-Nuts."
Eric Osterling composed
the next 'piece,
"Hollingsworth March," and
dedicated it to the Florida
Southern College Concert
Band.
"Saxophobia," written in
1918 by Rudy Wiedoeft,
became the largest selling
solo in the history of the sax-
ophone. This arrangement
features alto sax soloist Dale
Clayton.
The program will close
with a medley of tunes that
Tony Bennett has sung to mil-
lions of music lovers. The
"Concert Band Medley"
brings a fresh new dimension
to the-classic songs.

Schools' joint orchestra plays concert
To celebrate "Music in the School Month." the Lake Placid
Middle School/Lake Placid High School joint orchestra is going
to offer a concert at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the LPMS Commons.
The students that participated in Solo and Ensemble and
achieved Excellent and Superior ratings \ ill be participating, as
will Aristides Salgueiro on his iolin.

the Vienna Woods" by Johann
Strauss will be played as well
and then the stage will be
given over to Aristides
Salgueiro's student orchestra
program.
Bryan Johnson is the con-
ductor of the Heartland
Symphony Orchestra and


would like to encourage all
the students to keep up their
good work and that they
would be most welcome to
join his orchestra to continue
increasing their skill level and
the quality of the orchestra.
Johnson can be reached at
638-7231. This will be the
last concert of the season for
the Heartland Symphony
Orchestra.

Backyard citrus may suffer with magnesium deficiency


Do you have a citrus tree
with a good deal of leaf yel-
lowing? If so, you may haye a
nutrient deficiency.
Nitrogen deficiency can
show itself as a general yel-
lowing of leaves during late
winter and early spring or
more often we see a yellowing
of the main veins on leaves.
An inverted, green, v-shaped
area at the base of the leaf
characterizes magnesium
deficiency. For manganese
deficiency, areas between the
veins turn light green. Iron
deficient leaves have a very
fine network of green veins
all over the leaf. These nutri-
ent deficiencies can cause leaf
drop. and reduced yield and
quality.
In order to have a healthy
backyard citrus tree in our
central Florida sandy soil, you
will need to fertilize. Fert-
ilization should start about a


month after trans-
planting your tree.
During the first
year, apply fertiliz-
er about every six
weeks from Feb-
ruary through Sept-
ember. Apply at
rates from a half
cupful for the first
application to two
pints (two pounds)
in September, in-
creasing the quanti-
ty steadily all sea-
son.
As your tree
matures over the

next three years you can
decrease the frequency of
applications each year, so in
the fourth year only three
applications are necessary.
Increase the amount of fertil-
izer per application by about
two pounds each year; so by
year five you will need to


apply about 10
pounds per applica-
tion.
Use a low nitro-
gen fertilizer the
first three years (8-
8-8 or less) to reduce
the possibility of
nitrogen burn. Fert-
ilizer should cover
WING the basin area during
ON the first year. In suc-
ceeding years, a good
rule of thumb is to
Minds spread the fertilizer as
Master many feet beyond the
ners dripline of the canopy
as the age of the tree
in years (up to ten). Fertilizer
near or in contact with the
trunk should be avoided.
For mature trees, try to find
a low phosphorous citrus fer-
tilizer, as our soils are natural-
ly high in phosphorous. I
recently found a 12-5-8 analy-
sis with required macro and

micronutrients.
The optimum soil pH range
for citrus is 6.0-6.5. If the soil
pH is less than 6.0, the situa-
tion should be corrected by
the addition of dolomitic
limestone. To determine the


pH take a sample of the soil
around your tree to the Master
Gardener office and they will
run a test for a modest fee.
For 'more information on
citrus nutrition stop by or call
the Master Gardener office.


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

Lake evaporation rate does not always match rainfall levels


The current status of lake
levels in Highlands County
was given and explained in
our last article. There "are
many more factors that affect
lake levels that were not
explained, however.
Agnajor.factor is the evapo-
ration rate. Those folks who
own swimming pools are very
familiar with spring and sum-
mer evaporation rates. It is
not uncommon to need to add
a couple inches of water to the
pool every week, as well as
more chemicals. The same
process occurs to lakes and
other waterbodies, but there is
no mechanism for refilling on
demand.
On average, the evapora-
tion rate from our lakes is


'approximately 55 inches per
year. Compare that number
with the average rainfall to
our lakes: 55 inches per year.
That is a fairly straightfor-
ward concept to grasp. So
what happens when the aver-
age rainfall is only 40 inches
for the year? The evaporation
rate is still 55 inches per year.
It is inconvenient that there
is no spigot to turn on and
refill the lakes, and that we
must rely on weather patterns
and rainfall to do that job.
With a lack of rainfall, or a
shortage from the average, the
water in our lakes continues
to evaporate.
But don't be fooled by
countywide lake level num-
bers and staff gauge readings.


The statistical data
given in most
reports on lake lev-
els is based on an
average of a sample
set, which does not
include all lakes in
the county.
Currently, the lake
levels in the south-
ern portions of the
county, such as the
Lake Placid area,
have not experi-
enced the drastic
declines that many
lakes have in
Sebring and Avon
Park.

Rain gauges across the

in the Lake Placid
I area than in Sebring
and Avon Park. This
may account for the
less drastic lake
~ levels in the south-
ern lakes of
S Highlands County.
Before water
control structures
FROM were installed and
canals were
IE dredged, some
ISHED lakes in the county
would almost dry
cCarta up. Fluctuation in
S lake levels during
that time were huge
compared to current
water level changes.
Also, many wetlands,
swamps and bayheads that fed


water into lakes have been
severely altered by develop-
ment and no longer supply the
same volumes of water as
they once did. I
If comparing two common
lake types in Highlands
County, the Ridge lakes,
which have sand dominated
watersheds, tend to see more
fluctuation in water levels
than the Transition lakes. The
Transition lakes have water-
sheds that are dominated by
mucky soils, which usually
hold, or retain, a lot of water
before it gets to the lake, and
therefore the lake's level fluc-
tuqtion is less dramatic.
It is important to remember
that fluctuation of water lev-
els is healthy for lakes. It


Burns Griffiths leads watercolor


workshop at SFCC on April 13


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK -
Watercolor artist Burns
Caldwell Griffiths of Sebring
used to be a student of South
Florida Community College
art professor Cathy Futral.
Now he's teaching for her,
leading a workshop about
Florida landscape painting,
from 9 a.m. to noon Friday,
April 13, in the college's Art
Department on the Highlands
Campus.
Registration for the work-
shop is $15, which includes


the cost of a 12-by-16-inch
stretched canvas.
The Georgia-born Griffiths
was raised in Miami. Since
retirement, he has devoted his
time to his watercolor art and
paints almost daily either in
his home studio or on loca-
tion. Griffiths says the reason
he paints is to share his vision
of the beauty of nature.
He has attended art classes
at SFCC taught by Futral and
has studied under a number of
accomplished painters,
including Tom Lynch, Karen


Vance, Steve Rogers, Ralph
Taylor, Tom Freeman, Betty
Heim, Shirley Stone, Pam
Haddock, George Arnell,
Mark Menendez, and others.
He belongs to the Ridge
Plein Air Painters, Frostproof;
the Highlands Art League,
Sebring; the Macon Coupty
Art Association, Franklin,
N.C.; and the North Georgia
Art Guild, Clayton, Ga.
To register for the work-
shop, call the SFCC Art
Department at 784-7195.

Military personnel invited to final dress

rehearsal of HLT's 'No Time for Sergeants'


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING All retired
and active military personnel
are invited to the final dress
rehearsal Wednesday of "No
Time for Sergeants" at no
charge, as Highlands Little
Theatre's way of saying
"thanks for protecting us."
Call the Box Office at 382-
2525, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Monday-Friday or 6-8 p.m.
Tuesday to make your reser-
vation for general seating.
The door opens at 7 p.m. with
the performance at 8 p.m.
Vanessa Logsdon, adminis-
trative assistant of HLT, said,
"We are looking forward to
hosting this event. These
courageous men and women
have not only given so much
to our country, but are a vital
part of our local community.
What better way to honor
them than with free tickets to
a play that gently pokes fun at
military life? This is just one
small way of saying thank
you for everything you have
done, and for everything that
you continue to do."
"No Time For Sergeants" is
a hilarious comedy about
Boot Camp. It was released
as a Warner Bros. motion pic-
ture on May 29, 1958, direct-
ed by Mervyn LeRoy and
starring Andy Griffith,
McCormick, Don Knotts, and
'i.most of the original


Broadway cast. Nick Adams
joined the cast as Stockdale's
fellow draftee Benjamin B.
Whitledge.
The film version was a
major hit and was largely
responsible for launching the
careers of Griffith and Knotts.
The setting for the film (and


later TV version) was updated
to reflect the then-current
peacetime forces of the '50s
and the characters were mem-
bers of the now separate
United States Air Force.
Highlands Little Theatre is
at 356 W. Center Ave. in
Sebring.

serves as a natural cleansing
mechanism for waterbodies.
Improvement in water quality
is something that heavily
relies on that natural cleans-,
ing to occur. Lakes that have
very little fluctuation tend to
have water quality issues
relating to a buildup of nutri-
ents as well as unhealthy veg-
etation zones.
The lower water levels at
this time are a welcome event
for the lakes, even though not
necessarily for recreationists.

Art quilts return to Highlands


Art League Gallery in April


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Back by pop-
ular demand, Art Quilts made
by the group SSS will be the
Highlands Art League fea-
tured Artist-of-the-Month in
April.
SSS Art Quilters Mary
Seigfreid, Linn Shimek and
Sandy Spice present a fiber
art show that leaves a lasting
impression and viewers go
away knowing the excitement
of Art Quilts, a unique art
form that's growing in popu-
larity around the world.
Meet and greet the SSS Art
Quilters on from 5-8 p.m.
Thursday at their exhibit
opening reception at the
Highlands Art League Gallery
Gift Shop during the monthly
downtown Gallery Walk.
Their show opens that night
and runs through April 21.
Seigfreid, Shimek and
Spice joined together in 2006
foi their first three-person


show at the Art League. As
individuals, each artist's work
differs greatly, but as one they
share a passion and commit-
ment to designing a one-of-a-
kind textile creation the
Art Quilt.
Seigfreid came from a
background that included
commercial art, surface
design, traditional quilts and
dimensional pieces. For years
she worked as a representa-
tive for the Delta Paint
Company. As part of the
"Delta Force," she traveled
around the country demon-
strating paints and tech-
niques. She has written sever-
al books that feature her
work.
Shimek has a background
in traditional quilts and is
absolutely fearless with color
and piecing in a very non-tra-
ditional way. Her series on
flowers has displayed her
expertise and talent using
thread to highlight and shad-


ow her work in much the
same way a painter would use
a brush. She has enjoyed
showing her work in galleries.
Spice also came from a tra-
ditional quilt background and
now enjoys developing inno-
vative designs that are strong-
ly emotional. She often works
with vivid color to achieve
powerful visual impact. Her
techniques, colors and ideas
are constantly changing as
she continues to explore the
possibilities for future pieces.
She has been awarded several
prizes for her work.
The SSS Art Quilters'
exhibit opening Thursday is
in conjunction with Gallery
Walk, an evening of art in
downtown Sebring.
The Gallery Gift Shop,
1989 Lakeview Drive, is nor-
mally open to the public from
9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-
Friday and from noon-4 p.m.
on Saturday.

Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Award-
winning journalist Jeff
Klinkenberg, best known for
chronicling old-time Florida
and the state's transition to an
urban state, will offer his "top
10" list of books every
Floridian should read. The list
will be released at South
Florida Community College's
University Auditorium at 7:30
p.m. Tuesday, April 24.
The presentation, spon-
sored by the college's
Museum of Florida Art and
Culture, is free and open to
the public.
Klinkenberg, a writer and
columnist for The St.
Petersburg Times since 1977,
is a "Road Scholar" for the
Florida Humanities Council
..and.. has lectured about
Florida's heritage, its ecosys-
tems and writing at colleges
across the state. He is the only
two-time winner of the high-


est distinguished journalism
award given by the Florida
Society of Newspaper
Editors, and six times has
seen his essays and stories
nominated for the Pulitzer
prize. He has also written for
several national magazines,
including Audubon, Outside,
Travel and Leisure and
National Wildlife.
A native of Miami and a
journalism graduate of the
University of Florida,
Klinkenberg has published
several collections of essays,
"The Real Florida,"
"Dispatches from the Land of
Flowers," and "Blind Dog in a
Smokehouse." These works,
along with his 2004 book,
"The Seasons of Real
Florida," has prompted one
commentator to characterize
Klinkenberg as Florida's
"Thoreau, our Audubon, our
Russell Baker."
Klinkenberg's presenta-
tions are known to be enter-


training and funny as well as
educational. He has made a
career of searching out cor-
ners of Florida seldom seen or
appreciated by either tourists
or long-time residents. His
volume of narrations
describes the enchantment of
Florida's landscapes, its out-
of-the-way places, and its
wilderness, and he tells
authentic tales of the inhabi-
tants human and otherwise
- who make it their home.
"If Jeff Klinkenberg isn't
careful, he might give jour-
nalism a good name," wrote
author Carl Hiaasen. "He has
a rare eye for marvelous
detail, and an affectionate ear
for those small, wise, bitter-
sweet voices that tell the true
story of Florida."

Blue Streaks blow away Boo

SEBRING The bus' carrying
Sarasota-Booker to its Friday night
match-up at Firemen's Field took a
wrong turn, delaying the start of the
game.
The Tornados might have wished the
didn't find the field after all, what with
the Blue Streaks sending them home
after just 4 1/2 innings in a 15-2 rout.
It was a nice bounce back from
Wednesday's 6-2 loss to visiting St.
Albans, and came after a nice respite


from a busy and competitive Seb
schedule.
"We gave the kids the day off
yesterday," head coach Hoppy
Rewis said. "We've been in a lot Boc
of tight games lately, some
we've won with mirrors, and
sometimes it's just nice to get
away from it for a day."
The rest paid off as Chaz Abeln was
in prime form on the mound and the
Blue Streak bats had a little extra ping
in them.
After Abeln struck out two in the top

Charlie Peck followed that
with a two-run double into the
right-center field gap, bringing
home Nick Maloyed ahead of


Abeln.
Adam Simmons then reached on an
error, scoring Peck, and came around
himself on a ground out later in the
inning for a 5-0 Streak lead.

Royal Palms

claims title

despite loss
Special to the News-Sun
The final games of the
2007 Sebring Senior Softball
League were played
Thursday, and Royal Palms
and Miller's Central Air
faced off in Lake Placid with
a real nail-biter.
Royal Palms led 15-13 in
the seventh inning, but
Millers scored five runs in the
eighth inning and Royal
Palms only retaliated with
three as Miller's took an 18-
17 victory. Victor Rodriquez
banged out a home run for
Miller's, Tom Walsh was 4-
for-4 while Glenn Wearsh and
Tom Walsh each went 3-for-
4.
Despite the loss, Royal
Palms still finished first with
a 17-5 record and Miller's
Central Air placed second
with 15-7.
The little engine that could
did on Thursday at DeSoto
City as Discount Aluminum
came through with a clean 9-
3 win over Silent Salesman
with several borrowed play-
ers. Bob Flack was 4-for-4
with two RBIs and four other
players had three hits each
and scored runs for Discount
Aluminum. Through their
physical adversities this sea-
son, Aluminum players
stayed cheerful. They ranked
sixth with 4-18 in the final
standing.
The Salesman's Jerry
Johnston maintained his
stamina, going 3-for-4 with
two RBIs. Surprisingly, the
stands were overflowing with
spectators, which was appre-
ciated by all the players.
Silent Salesman ranked
fourth in the league with an
even 11-11.
At Lincoln Heights, Luby's
celebrated its seventh straight
victory, getting a last-inning
home run from Bob Silvia for
a 5-4 win over the Rebels.
Both sides played great
defense to account for the
low scoring.
Rebels Jack Grosso went 3-
for-3 with a double and Frank
Martin was 2-for-2 with a
double.
Luby's forged into third
place ranking with a 12-10
and Rebels took fifth place
with 7-15.
All the league teams
played doubleheaders on
Tuesday to cover a January
rainout.
At DeSoto City, the scores
were both in favor of Royal
Palms with victories of 12-2

American Le Mans Series


Younger Franchitti ready to


race for Andretti Green team

Will drive Acura with Bryan Herta in St. Petersburg race


Special to the News-Sun
ST. PETERSBURG -
Marino Franchitti is counting
down the days to the biggest
opportunity of his sports car
career. The energetic Scot
will make his return to proto-
type racing next week at the
inaugural Acura Sports Car
Challenge of St. Petersburg
with Sebring LMP2 winner
Andretti Green Racing.
Franchitti, a veteran of 21
American Le Mans Series
starts and two runner-up class
finishes, will team with Bryan
Herta in Round 2 of the 2007
Series season.
Older brother Dario teamed
with Herta and Tony Kanaan
for the historic 12 Hours of
Sebring class victory and
second place overall finish -
for Andretti Greep Racing and
Acura, the first for both.
"I'm very proud of the job
that Andretti Green Racing
and Acura have done produc-
ing a car that was capable of
winning the Sebring 12
Hours," Marino Franchitti
said. "I thought Bryan (Herta)


and my other teammates
drove a fantastic race."
Franchitti has driven at
nearly every level in the
American Le Mans Series for
marques such as Dodge,
Panoz and Ferrari in the GT
classes to Lola in the proto-
type ranks. His lone appear-
ance last year
resulted in a
runner-up
GT2 finish for
R i s i
Competizione
at Petit Le
Mans. The
M. Franchitti prior year, he
was part of the
factory Panoz effort in North
America and at the 24 Hours
of Le Mans.
Franchitti also was part of
the GT2-class winning Ferrari
team at the FIA GT round at
Adria in Italy and was second
in class at the Britcar 24
Hours at Silverstone in a
Porsche.
"We certainly feel that this
is a good opportunity for
Marino and we're looking


""-. --. P ~ ri~~


forward to seeing him per-
form at a key event for XM,
Acura and Andretti Green,"
said Andretti Green Racing
-CEO and principal Kim
Green. "The class win at
Sebring was a big boost for
everyone involved with our
program and we're hoping
Bryan and Marino can ride
that momentum for another
good result in the Acura
Sports Car Challenge."
"Testing the car has been
fun and educational, especial-
ly in Sebring last week,"
Franchitti said. "Now I'm
ready to go racing in St.
Petersburg. It looks like an
amazing race track and hope-
fully we'll be able to earn a
second victory for Acura."
The Acura Sports Car
Challenge of St. Petersburg
will start at 5:05 p.m. on
Saturday. PEED will provide
a same-day broadcast event
from 8-11 p.m. American Le
Mans Radio and IMSA's Live
Timing'& Scoring will be

Barramundi and big, big fish


Osceola Outback Adven-
tures operates a pay-to-fish
lake near St. Cloud. I had the
opportunity recently to talk
with the owner, Byron
Hennecy, who said they have
stocked a private pond with
barramundi.
These fish are natives of
Australia and grow to up to
130 pounds and are a close
relative of the snook. The are
10,000 Barramundi, along
with other species of fish in
the pond. Being a part of a
commercial operation, the
pond is surrounded by ditch-
es and other restraints to
keep the fish from escaping.
Most of the fish in the
ponds range from 5 to 6
pounds and Hennecy says
they will wear you out. It
takes about 18 months for the
Barramundi to reach 8
pounds and they are great as
table fare. They have been
taking them on stick baits
and jigs.
All fish taken from the
property must be dead. This
is to prevent the fish from
getting into local waters and
causing a problem. Four
hours fishing from the bank
costs $800 and taking one
home will cost $6 per pound.
Hennecy says business has
been good and customers are
keeping him running.
Whether its a Barramundi
or a largemouth bass, we all
dream about that huge
record-breaking fish that is
swimming around in our
favorite fishing hole. Luckily,
a few of us do eventually
catch that lunker that has
given us nightmares for so
long.
For instance, Clay
Armstrong of
Mechanicsville, Va., caught
up with his dream last March
while fishing for striped bass
with friends near Virginia
Beach. He had already told
his friends he was going for
big fishttiatf' ayf '.:''"

His friends had taken
stripers up to 30 pounds, but
when he grabbed his rod he
knew it was something much
larger. When he finally got
the fish'into the boat and
onto the scales, the needle
wavered between 65 and 70
pounds.
He was sure his catch was
near record size. He revved
up the boats engine and raced
for the dock. There, a certi-
fied scale read 68.1 pounds.
It was the sixth largest state-
record striper in the country.
He said Old Dominion
University tests determined
the fish's age at 33 years, the
same as his.
He was thrilled, but what
if he had been a little older?
I would bet that few fisher-
men would know what a
cyprinus carpio is. No, it is
not an opera singer. The
cyprinus carpio is undoubted-
-ly, ne of the least-admired


fish in the states and some
refer to it as trash fish. If you
guessed the lowly carp, you
were right.
There is a fast growing
group in America called the
American Carp Society, and
they take carp fishing seri-
ously. So seriously, in fact,
that they paid out $250,000
to Al St. Cyr of Texas, who
took first place with a record
carp in their six-day Texas
Carp Challenge tournament.
St. Cyr said he knew that
Town Lake held carp that
were record size as he had
caught some weighing over
40 pounds. He took the win-
ning 43.2-pound monster
about 4 p.m. on the fifth day
of the tournament. The tour-
nament was scheduled to end
at 6 p.m. the next day.
Needless to say, St. Cyr
couldn't sleep the night of
his catch. At the awards cere-
mony, he was shaking like a
leaf waiting for the
announcement. He ran up to
the podium and grabbed the
oversized check and held it
over his head.
They wanted the oversized
check back but he said no
dice. Since it was a catch-
and-release tournament, he
wanted something to put over
his mantel.

TITLE
Continued from 1D
and 11-2 over Discount
Aluminum.
Royal Palms' home run
derby was led by Bob Fox
banging out a homer and a
triple for five RBIs. Jim
Quarter slugged a homer
with three RBIs and Brian
Pluta also hit a homer. Ross
Anderson tripled and Jim
Quinn and Bob Weiss each
doubled.
Discount Aluminum took it
all in stride, with Les Smith
helping his team with three
hits. Bob Iott and Jim Larnard
added to the hit list, scoring
several runs.
Luby's exhibited good
defense with three double
plays in the two games, over-
powering Silent Salesman 15-
5 and 11-10.
Dick Schiltz had four hits
including a homer for Luby's,
while Don Day, Harold Dinel
and Howard Southwick each
managed five hits between the
two games.
The Salesman seemed to
have one hand tied behind
their backs due to four players
with shoulder injuries, hurting
their defense. Jerry Johnston
went 6-for-6 with a homer and
scored four runs. Don
Cunningham homered and
had four hits and Charlie
Williams also had four hits.
Bob Flack banged out two
hits including a double. In the
first inning of the second
game, Ken Filppula put the
Salesman in a five to three
lead with a bases-loaded
triple. However, they could
not maintain a defensive
momentum and shifted over
to the loser's column in both
games.
In Lake Placid, Miller's
Central Air trampled the
Rebels 15-7 and 14-4. Victor
Rodriquez sent Miller's for-
ward with two home runs,
while Joe Hunzy and Glenn
Minnick each slugged a
homer. Adding to the offense
were Tom Walsh and Don

Chaz Ablen struck out eight for Sebring Friday night.


STREAKS
Continued from 1D
him home.
A balk sent Colt Williams,
running for Abein, to third
before Peck was hit by a pitch
and a double steal brought
Williams home.
Peck then came in when
Tony Vazquez blasted a moon-
shot over the right-field wall to
make it 10-1.
The third inning went by
scoreless for both teams, as did
the fourth for Booker but
Sebring's fourth inning put on
the finishing touches with five
more runs.
With one out, Vazquez
walked, moved to second on
Cody Higgins single and came
in as Cory Watt joined the hit


parade.
Tomlinson walked to load
the bases, making Cory Ritter's
walk and Abeln's hit-by-pitch
worth RBIs.
Kyle Long got two RBIs the
more traditional way with a sin-
gle up the middle and save for
a lone run in the top of the fifth
from Booker, that was the ball
game.
"Chaz looked like he had his
old arm back and really threw
the ball well tonight," Rewis
said of the complete-game,
eight-strikeout performance. "It
was nice that all the guys did
some hitting and we were able
to enjoy this one."
Though the Tornadoes -
and their bus driver might
beg to differ.
