Some construction reflects demand on local businesses

AVON PARK While con-
struction of the Super Wal-Mart
Center on U.S. 27, just south of
Bill Jarrett Ford, is the most obvi-
ous sign of new development in
the cit.. there are other projects
just completed, under way, or on
the planning board as well.
Some of the new construction
reflects established companies
growing to meet demand.
The Heartland National Bank is
opening a branch on Main Street,
for example. The new building,
which will be built across the-
street from the Ridge Area Arc
thrift store, should be ready by the
end of the year.
Dennis L. Johnson Flooring has
built 'a new warehouse on
Stivender Avenue, behind the
Bank of America, in order to
expand product choices.
Turner Furniture is completing
work on a new distribution center
just behind Kentucky Fried
Chicken on Prairie Street and Hart
Avenue.
Bishop's Family Furniture is
opening a show room in what used


* -to be the Kash &-Karry grocery
store on Stryker Road and U.S. 27.
Dr. T. Hunter Newsom, founder
of the Newsom Eye and Laser
Center in Sebring, is opening up a
satellite center at the strip mall
that used to be called Davis Plaza.


It is on the east side of
U.S. 27 at Hal McRae
Boulevard.
Newsom also bought
and renovated the mall,
which will be known as
Newsom Eye Plaza. The
eye center, which will
have an optometrist and
optician on site, is
expected to be open
sometime in July or
early August.


their way through the permitting
process.
Twin Lakes Pointe, a sub-divi-
sion at Gaster Road on Lake
Damon, has 11 lakeside lots, and
44 interior lots. Construction
already has begun on two homes.


Some
developers
are trying
to think
outside the

box.


Newsom is currently consider-
ing options for another property
he plans to develop. It is next door
to the plaza, on Lake Anoka.
And John Borgemeister, of All-
Star Properties Inc., confirms that
a Raceway gasoline station is
going in on U.S. 27- and Marble
Avenue, opposite the Wells Motor
Company.
There are several housing
developments that are making


It is being developed
by Howard Pritchett,
Roger Gurganus, and
Mark Gose, who say it
is the first deed restrict-
ed community in Avon
Park. The lots (without
houses) run from
$69,000 to $200,000,
depending on location.
Residents will have
access to the River
Greens Golf Course.


Just down Gaster Street from
Twin Lakes Pointe another gated
community, Grand Oaks of Lake
Damon, readies for construction.
The outside wall and its gates are
already in place, as are the interior
roads, a fountain and street lights.
It's advertising announces 126
home sites, spread over 282 acres,
with lakefront, pond and canal lots
available.
Orange groves on East


Shockley Road (off of County
Road 627) will soon be plowed
under.
The Realty Corporation is
preparing Brookside, a sub-divi-
sion on Lake Pioneer. It will offer
474 home sites over 125 acres.
Speaking on behalf of the com-
pany, Gary Rosen said the project
was proceeding a pace with all the
certifications and permitting in
place. Engineers are currently
planning the infrastructure, and
construction is expected to begin
in the next nine to 12 months.
Further down East Shockley,
bordering on Lake Pythias, a
smaller sub-division is planned. It
advertises 10 lots over 20 acres,
but efforts to contact the develop-
er for more information were
unsuccessful.
Some developers are trying to
think outside the box.
For example, on Main Street
and Butler Avenue (in what once
was the Avon Park Sun office)
Wayne McFarland, of Diversified
Financial Concepts, is creating a
business incubator called
Heartland Executive Suites.

Forestry


calling on


residents to


be fire wise
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING As residents in southern
Polk County clean up from a 3,000-acre
wildfire, officials from the Florida
Division of Forestry are urging citizens in
Highlands County's high risk areas to take
the hint and begin cleaning up and clearing
out around their structures to make their
property more fire resistant.
This year there was a weak El Nino in
the Pacific Ocean, which impacted
Florida's weather through.the fall and win-
ter but it did not give the state the rainfall
usually associated with such a weather
event. The bottom line is a dry spring that
borders on drought conditions.
The Keetch-Byram drought index is a
reference scale for estimating the dryness
of the soil. It increases for each day with-
out rain and the amount of increase
depends on the daily high temperature.
Conversely, the index decreases when it
rains. The higher the numbers, the more
susceptible conditions are for fires.
Wednesday, the Keech-Bynum Drought
Index stood at 613 out of a possible 800
for Highlands County and the county offi-
cials said they were at a "Fire Readiness,"
level three out of-a-five possible levels.
Officials warned that you don't have to
live out in the woods to be at risk. There
are plenty of areas in Highlands County
where the edge of a community transitions
to forest land or where homes are situated
around the edge of a park or preserve
Melissa Yunas, a wildfire mitigation
specialist and information officer whose
district covers Highlands County, said
many homes are in rural or wooded areas,
and officials of the Division of Forestry
are urging citizens to take a look around
and make certain that their homes have
been made more fire resistant.
"The first thing you can do is create
what we call a defensible space. Make sure
that there are no leaves, pine needles or,
sticks on your roof. That's the kind of
thing that we use to start fires and an

VPK program numbers


down after two years
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
The short history of Florida's Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten
program is a colorful one.
Originally touted as a model for other states to follow, it now
lags behind after only two years.
Highlands County is seeing a decline in enrollment in the free
program, although the administrator of the county's Early
Learning Coalition, in charge of the program locally, doesn't see
any reason.
"We have seen a slight decrease from last year, closer to 100
than a small number," Jeanne Griffith said. "We have more
providers than we did last year, the capacity is available. I don't
know why the numbers are the way they are, maybe some chose
to enroll in the summer program. I would expect to see it
increase in the coming fall."
Less than 500 students participated in the VPK program local-
ly, provided by a number of private institutions using state
funds.
After the first year, problems already began to surface.
Funding only provides children with 540 hours of instruction-
al time, but unfortunately that spreads out leaving only three
hours of instruction five days a week.
"I wish they would have a longer time period, the more you

Lakes management assistant Erin McCarta talks Wednesday about the Lake Jackson
Shoreline Restoration Project in Sebring.



Restoration work begins



on shores of Lake Jackson


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING People driv-
ing, walking or biking along
the U.S. 27 side of Lake
Jackson will soon be noticing
some changes.
The Highlands Soil and
Water Conservation District is
preparing for a restoration
project covering 1.12 miles of
the southern Lake Jackson
shoreline. The work will
include cleaning out over-
grown vegetation and plant-
ing new, low-growing
species.
"We're trying to open up
the shoreline," Lakes
Management assistant Erin
McCarta, who will serve as
project leader for the Lake
Jackson Restoration Project,
said. The restoration will be
done on the south side of the
lake, the only unhabitated
beachfront of the lake.
Now is the best time to
begin the project because of
the low water level of Lake
Jackson, McCarta said. Rain
measurements for 2006 were
15 inches less than 2005 lev-
els.
The restoration project will
begin with removal of "unde-
sirable vegetation" (including
torpedograss, paragrass and
primrose willow, among oth-
ers) that has grown up to high
levels along the southern
shoreline of the lake. Nine
small patches of the vegeta-
tion will remain in order to
preserve bird habitats.
The next step after removal
of the vegetation will be the
planting of 10,000 stems of
low-growing plant species -
including cordgrass, pickerel-
weed, bulrush and others -
that are expected to take root
quickly. The goal is to have
the plants established in the
lake before the water level
rises during the late summer
rainy season.
Also, sections of vegetation
displaced from the 2004 and
2005 hurricanes will be sub-
merged into "holes" near the
lakeshore, in an effort to pro-
vide more underwater fish
habitats.
The restoration project will
be beneficial to the city in
several ways, McCarta said.
The idea is to promote public
recreation, including fishing


Lakes management assistant Erin McCarta explains that mussels
are a good indication of a healthy lake.


and birdwatching. Also, the
hope is that the improvements
will result in increased usage
of City Pier and Veterans
Beach, as well as the sidewalk
between U.S. 27 and Lake
Jackson.
"There's nowhere to stop
on this side of the highway,"
McCarta said of the area set
for restoration. "We're hoping
to promote more usage."
Educational signage will
also be erected in the work
area during and after the proj-
ect, which will feature infor-
mation on what is being done
to improve the lake. Public
usage surveys and interviews
will also be conducted in an
attempt to measure the pro-
ject's success.
"We want this to be pleas-
ing to the public," McCarta
said.
The estimated cost of the
project is $107,500. The
biggest chunk of the budget,
$60,000, is expected to come
from the Tourist Development
Council's Lakes Project Fund,
which is made up of money
collected from the state's
tourist tax.
The rest of the funding will
come from governmental
organizations, and grants.
However, McCarta said,

"we're not relying on grants
to do the work."
Bidding for contracting
work on the project should
begin early this summer,
McCarta said. The project
should begin in June and the
planting of the new vegeta-
tion should be complete by
September. The project would
then conclude in September
of 2008, after the plants have
a year to begin the growing
process.
"If we get the stems planted
in early summer, when the
rain falls, they will be estab-
lished," McCarta said, "We're
hoping the plants get estab-
lished before the water level
rises."
The city council unani-
mously approved $12,500
towards the restoration proj-
ect at its March 20 meeting.
The council also voted to sub-
mit an application for $60,000
in funding to the Tourist
Development Council Lakes
Committee. The city was
responsible for the grant sub-
mittal because Lake Jackson
lies within the city limits.

AVON PARK Because
April 1 falls on a Sunday this
year, most people won't have
an opportunity to celebrate
"Ride Your Lawnmower to
Work Day." Instead, members
of the United States Lawn
Racing Association will be
celebrating with the annual
trek to the City of Champions
for the STA-BIL 12 Minutes
of Avon Park presented by
Acoustical Services.
The STA-BIL is probably
the biggest race of the season
for the participants, sponsors
and draws the biggest crowds.
Florida Lawnracing
Association President Sid
Whiteside said they expect
better than 60 drivers to show
up and try the 3/16ths-mile
modified oval that constitutes
the Avon Park Mower-Plex.
He said a good number of
those may come from the
northern states. Last year, rac-
ers from Georgia, Tennessee,
Tennessee, Wisconsin, North
Carolina, and all over Florida
turned out for the race.
"They called it 'The Winter
Nationals' because they
couldn't race up there so they
came down here," he said.
Also scheduled to compete
is STA-BIL National Lawn
Mower Racing Series cham-
pion Bobby Cleveland. In
addition to a couple of his
competition mowers,
Cleveland said he would be
bringing the mower he set the
world land speed record July
4 on the Bonneville Salt Flats.
"The record is 84 miles per
hour but I'll tell you, I felt
like I was going a whole lot
faster," Cleveland said.
Adding to speculation that
the competitor count will be
high is that for the first time
this year it will be a two-day
event, with races both
Saturday and Sunday after-
noons. In all there will be six
different classes of mowers to
race on each of the two days.
That means double the action
and double the opportunity
for points.
Another factor is that this


year, April 1 will be part of
the weekend.
"April Fool's Day is a
national holiday for mower
racers. It's our birthday,"
United States Lawn Mower
Racing Association President
Bruce Kaffman said.
Whiteside said they plan to
have a number of festivities,
including a birthday cake for
the USLMRA and its partici-
pants to help celebrate.
Lawn racing was born
April 1, 1992 just over
three years later it started in
Avon Park. The brainchild of
the late James Paul, the event
originally was sponsored by
the Avon Park Noon Rotary
Club as part of the annual
Springtime on the Mall
Festival. Noting its proximity
to the 12 Hours of Sebring, he
joked it was the "12 Minutes
of Avon Park" and the name
stuck.
In the world of mower rac-
ing, Avon Park has the same
allure as Sebring or
Indianapolis has to auto rac-
ing fans. It was the first
municipally-owned, for pur-
pose race track in the United
States. Assembled by Brian
Benton, Joe Gillians, Tom
Macklin and a host of volun-
teers, literally hundreds of
competitors from across the
country and throughout the
southeast have come to race
on the modified oval.
It has been featured on sev-
eral network programs and
hosted a number of different
lawn racing sanctioning bod-
ies.
The Avon Park Mower-Plex
is off Herrick Road an State
Road 64 on the westernmost
end of the Avon Park
Executive Airport. The racing
will start at 4 p.m. Saturday
and at noon Sunday. The
gates open at 11 a.m. both
days.
Admission is $5 for adults,
children 12 and under are
free. A superticket is $10 per
day and includes a pit pass.

Red Cross introduces'Dottie's List'


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The first
charter issued for a Red Cross
chapter in Highlands County
dates back to 1917 90 years
ago this year. That makes
Highlands County one of the
nation's oldest local Red
Cross presence. To celebrate
that anniversary and to ensure
the Red Cross stays in
Highlands County another 90
years, a new campaign to
raise the group's profile has


begun.
Dottie Pope, a member of
the Red Cross for many years,
served as both a day-to-day
office staff and as a Disaster
Services volunteer until 2004,
when she passed away in the
middle of that year's taxing
hurricane season. Since then,
the Highlands County Service
Center has established
"Dottie's. Donors," also
known as "Dottie's List," to
honor and gather Red Cross


Safety is top concern


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
A Florida Department of Transportation project has
begun on Main Street in Avon Park. APAC-Southeast
Inc. is doing the work, which includes new curbing and
inlets, road resurfacing, and new mast arms for traffic
lights. The foreman, Keith Reeder, asks pedestrians to
please observe the 'sidewalk closed' signs for the 90
days of the job. It is a question of safety, he said.


BENCHTOP TOOLS


supporters.
"Dottie was one of the peo-
ple who were the lifeblood of
our volunteer force," said Art
Harriman, director of the
American Red Cross
Highlands County Service
Center. "It's fitting that she be
memorialized by a program
dedicated to the long-term
survival of the Red Cross in
Highlands County."
'Dottie's List' will consist
of businesses and individuals
who make pledges, starting at
$125 per quarter, to support
Highlands County Red Cross
operations. The timing could-
n't be better, said Harriman.
"After the 2004 hurricanes,
Red Cross was at the top of
peoples' minds, and support
for both our operation here
and nationally was strong,"
Harriman said. "The combi-
nation of the 2005 weather
disasters, like Hurricane
Katrina, and a very quiet 2006
season changed that. People
supported national efforts in
the Gulf Coast very well, but
locally we dropped off.many
radar screens."
Over the last year, dona-
tions to many Red Cross local
chapters have dropped signif-
icantly, in many cases by
almost half. That's a problem
anywhere, but in Highlands
County, smaller numbers
leave less room for error.
Meanwhile, the county has
had a very busy season of
home fires and wildfires, sup-
porting both the victims and
emergency personnel at each
incident.
Help support the local Red
Cross by volunteering time,
energy, and funds to help pro-
vide for people in the commu-
nity who are victims of large
natural disasters or small sin-
gle-family ones, like home
fires. Helping the Red Cross
will ensure the Red Cross can
help those in need.

tact the local American Red
Cross Highlands County
Service Center at 386-4440 or ,

jail operations and communi-
ty relations in the current con-
text of increased awareness
for-public safety.
Wilson said, "Sheriff

March of Dimes' WalkAmerica event set for Saturday


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING Hundreds of
people will be walking around
Highlands Hammock State Park
Saturday, and for a good cause
WalkAmerica, a yearly fund-
raising event by the March of
Dimes. The event, which drew
S more than 200 people last year,
is designed to raise awareness
of premature births and to raise
money for medical research and
education into the problem.
"To me, WalkAmerica is
about the community saying we
recognize what's going on and
showing support," Erica
Lavely, community director for

ember can be carried as far as
a mile," Yunas said.
In fact, it was an ember
from a not-quite-extinguished
campfire that officials now
believe may have sparked the
Blue Jordan Forest blaze that
charred 3,000 acres east of
Frostproof this week. The fire
may have destroyed as many
as 350 buildings, vehicles and
structures at the River Ranch
Hunt Club.
Yunas said other precau-
tions that have proved to be
cost effective in protecting
homes or out buildings
include: maintaining land-
scape clearings, stacking any
firewood and storing flamma-
ble materials at least 30 to 50
feet from your home and
keeping a water source acces-
sible to fire fighters.
There are other ways to
keep the fire away from the
main structure of your home
as well. In addition to being
attractive additions to the
exterior of a house, patios,
walkways, driveways, stone
walls, and pools may also
serve as fuel breaks.
Additionally, Yunas said
there is a long list of trees,
palms and shrubs, ranging
--from f t-he jacaranda tree toi
azalea plants that are more
fire resistant than other
plants.
"On the other hand, saw
palmettos and boxwood can
be very farmable," she said.
Whatever kind of landscap-
ing they have, homeowners
are urged to create an open
space of 20 feet around the
house, clear of trees and large

The project is being built by
Kopta Construction. When it
is complete, which should be
by May 1, there will be 13
single offices, each available
on an annual lease at approxi-
mately $500 a month.
Included in the rent will be
access to office machines,
like a fax and a copier; a con-
ference room; and a recep-
tionist. ,

the local March of Dimes, said.
Saturday's event will
"acknowledge those who have a
relative who is premature or
knows someone who was,"
Lavely said. Participants will be
"walking in honor or in memo-
ry of that child, baby, kid, or
adult.
"WalkAmerica is designed to
be saving babies together."
Unlike many fund-raising
events where donations are
raised depending on how many
laps are walked, Walk America
participants will walk one five-
mile lap around the park. "It
makes it a lot simpler," Lavely
said.


Registration for the event
begins at 8 a.m., with the walk
starting at 9 a.m. Awards will be
presented after the walking is
complete, and a barbecue lunch,
provided by Sarah Holton of
Orchid Hill Stables, will be
served to the walkers at around
11 a.m.
This year's event will be the
37th year for WalkAmerica.
Since the event was founded in
1970, WalkAmerica has raised
more than $1.7 billion national-
ly, according to the March of
Dimes Web site. Last year's
Sebring event raised more than
$32,000, Lavely said. Although
raising money is important,

"That will allow fire trucks
to get around the house,
which can be very helpful. We
had a fire earlier this year out
near the Country Club of
Sebring and the fact that we
could get in behind some of
the houses is the only reason
they are still standing today,"
Yunas said.
With conditions as dry as


Over on Memorial Drive
just north of the railroad
crossing, Jim Wood, of
Golden Key Realty &
Mortgage, has built ware-
houses he hopes will be used
for more than simple storage.
Some of the spaces were
designed to provide indoor
motor home garage space, for
example. The biggest units
have 16-foot high walls, and
14-foot high roll-up doors.
There is more than enough
room in any of the units for
small businesses or dedicated
hobbyists, like those restoring
cars, or doing wood working.
Wood said the buildings are
zoned I-1 to B-2, so there is
flexibility regarding their use.


they are Yunas said it doesn't
even take an ember, even hot
temperatures such as heat
from an automobile's exhaust
system can cause a fire.
"There was a case of a one
acre brush fire there last.
month that actually was start-
ed by a guy in his golf cart,"
she said.
If fire should threaten, offi-
cials say turning on the sprin-
klers will help but if an evac-
uation is ordered, people
should vacate immediately.
They say having an evacua-
tion kit for a fire is much the
same as that for a hurricane,
with extra clothes, first aid
kit, etc. are recommended.
Residents also are reminded
to carry any needed medica-
tion.


Lavely also wants the event to
draw attention to the problem of
premature births.
"I'm more (concerned) about
the community recognizing that
there is a problem and that there
are preemies in Highlands
County," Lavely said.
Lavely has been involved
with March of Dimes locally
for a little over a year. She
knows the struggles faced by

have them, the more they
learn," Kenilworth School
Principal Donna Ellison said.
"Even for adults you have to
get in the groove. It's hard to
give them up when you know
how much they can learn."
Kenilworth School is one
of the VPK providers,
instructing youngsters using
the Montessori method.
"It utilizes their sense of
play; it's a fun way for them
to learn," Ellison said. "They
use hands-on, fun toys that
are educational and not like
the ones they have at home."
But after three hours the
young students are forced to
leave, VPK funding only pro-
vides instruction from 8:30-
11:30 a.m.
"I haven't had all the les-
sons," VPK student Will Siver
said. "I like doing all the
things I had lessons on."
Just now turning 5, Siver
can read and when asked if he
enjoys it, a smile grows from
ear to ear as he answers with
an emphatic "Yes!"
Without additional out-of-
pocket expenses coming from
parents, Siver and students
like him would have to end
their days at 11:30 a.m.
Velma Lumpkin, executive
director of Avon Park
Children's Community
Development Center, shares
this concern, although she
feels that VPK still helps
_- w working families with
expenses.
"Some parents utilize VPK
and pay for the rest of the day
out of pocket," Lumpkin said.
"The only criticism I have is
the short days. You could
have a six- or seven-hour day
but then the program would
be over by Christmas. If it
was changed to a six-hour day
we would be happy with
that."
Without additional funding,
more instructional time will
stay a fantasy.
The APCCDC uses High


premature births personally, as
her daughter Madison, who is
now 3 years old, was born at
24.5 weeks and weighed a mere
one pound, three ounces.
The local WalkAmerica
event had to be moved to
Saturday because of scheduling
conflicts (the national event
will take place at the end of
April). Because of the move,
walk participants can continue


Scope-based curriculum,
working within the frame-
work of plan, do, review.
Students first plan out what
they want to do, whether the
activity is playing with blocks.
or on the computer, then do
what they set out to.
If they end up changing
their mind and do something
else, they have to recall what
it was they did and why they
made the decision to change
their plan.
Faith-based VPK providers
see the same trends as other
schools, leading to expenses
for parents while still seeing
benefits.
"Most of them stay because
their parents work all day,"
First Baptist Weekday Early
Education Center Director
Vicki Metals said. "We reach
some of the children that oth-
erwise wouldn't be in day
care and prepare them for
kindergarten."
Of all its shortfalls; the
local VPK program does
monitor schools to ensure
compliance with state man-
dates, and it rates each school
using entrance tests.
Children are tested within
the first 45 days of kinder-
garten and based on those
tests, programs offering VPK
are rated.
"Scores have not yet come
out. Testing was done in
September with the children
and the state has already veri-
fied students to be at certain
sites," Griffith said. "So the
ratings should come out fairly
soon."
VPK providers sign con-
tracts stating their staff meets
requirements set by the state,
and the Early Learning


fund-raising even after the
Sebring walk is over.
WalkAmerica is a nationwide
fund-raising event for the
March of Dimes, designed to
raise money and awareness for
the issue of premature births.
Registration can be done
either in person Saturday or
online at the March of Dimes'
WalkAmerica Web site,
www.walkamerica.org.


Coalition verifies staffing is
correct and the 10-to-i stu-
dent-to-teacher ratio is main-
tained, Griffith said.
Student registration for
summer VPK is under way,
providing 300 hours of
instruction at select public
and private schools from June
4 to Aug. 2.
With a shorter timetable,
children will be provided with
longer daily instruction time,
running from 8 a.m. to 3:30
p.m.
Application forms for the
summer term are at the Early
Learning Coalition office,
209 N. Ridgewood Drive in
Sebring.

SFCC dedicates 'The Tower of Enlightenment'


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK In spring
2007, South Florida
Community College adminis-
trators commissioned artist
Keith Goodson to develop a
concept for a mural for the
cylindrical cooling tower in
the middle of the Highlands
Campus. Toward that end,
Goodson consulted Dr.
Norman Stephens, the col-
lege's trustees, members of
the SFCC Museum of Arts
and Culture Advisory
Committee, trustees of the
SFCC Foundation Inc., stu-
dents, and others.
"It knocked us off our
feet," Stephens said, recalling
the first time he saw
Goodson's artistic rendering
for the first panel,
"Embracing the Earth." "It
was grander and more
astounding than we had imag-
ined."
The mural was dedicated


South Florida Community
College dedicated its new
mural, The Tower of
Enlightenment,' on Tuesday
at the Highlands Campus
with college trustees,
administrators, faculty,
staff, students, and friends
of the college in attendance.


Tuesday.
Goodson's mural consists
of three panels that portray
aspects of the SFCC experi-
ence and present a message
about its mission and purpose.
Inherent in each panel are
abstract and realistic images
that can be instantly identified
with SFCC the globe that is
the college icon, the split-
block architectural facade
used in campus buildings, the
live oaks that dominate its
landscape, and its mascot, the
Florida panther.
"Embracing the Earth" fea-
tures a globe, the iconic sym-
bol of SFCC, as it is being
cradled in architectural ele-
ments that are widely used on
SFCC campuses. "Codes of
Life" depicts a model of DNA
and rows of various symbols
that can be identified with
SFCC and the various disci-
plines that make up the col-
lege experience.


"Understanding the Universe"
shows a pair of Florida pan-
thers, the SFCC mascot, bal-
ancing an armillary sphere on
their backs. Invented 2,600
years ago, the armillary
sphere is an astronomical
instrument used to explain the
motion of the stars and plan-
ets, and it is widely used in art
as a symbol of wisdom and
knowledge.
"The mural is a depiction
of my interpretation of the
pursuit for wisdom and truth,"
Goodson said. "We are always
on a journey of discovery. It is
our nature to look beyond
what we can see and strive for
the substance of things
unseen. Such is faith the
faith to know that we are. a
part of something far greater
than what we can comprehend
or imagine."
Kimble McKay, chairman,
SFCC Board of Trustees,
remarked, "The three themes

are so wonderfully emblemat-
ic of the college experience,
particularly the South Florida
Community College experi-
ence. I feel that at some point
this edifice we are dedicating
will be a signature piece for
the college."
To many in Highlands
County, including college
trustee Anne Reynolds,
Goodson is known for his
contributions to the Lake
Placid Mural Society's mural
project. His first Lake Placid
mural, "Bassin'," won first
place in a contest for bill-
boards and murals, sponsored
by National Air Brush Action
Magazine. "We appreciate
having an artist from
Highlands County who has
meant so much to this com-
munity, and now he's doing a
wonderful job representing us
to the rest of the world,"
Reynolds said.
SFCC art professor Cathy
Futrrl \\as one of Goodson's
art instructors when he stud-
ied for t\o years at SFCC. As
he developed the mural, he
consulted SFCC art students
for their ideas. "The interac-
tion he ga\e to the students
\\as truly wonderful," Futral
said. "He let them be a part of
the artistic experience. That's
something they will never for-
get."
The mural project was born
from necessity. In 2004, hurri-
canes Charley, Frances, and
Jeanne blew off roughly one-
third of the tiles that decorat-
ed the cylindrical cooling

remo:n e the tiles, rather than
replace tdem. and paint the
tower white. At that point, it

Enlightenment' during the mural's dedication on Tuesday.


became apparent that the
tower would be an ideal loca-
tion for a mural.
The search for an artist led
straight to Goodson. The
Avon Park High School grad-
uate attended SFCC and has
worked as a mural artist, set
designer, and illustrator.
Today, he produces fine art
pieces from his studio in
Pensacola. "He was our first
choice, our last choice, and
our only choice," Stephens
said.
As with all art, the meaning
of the mural lies in the eye of
the beholder. As viewers
study the mural, they will be
inspired to see things they
have never thought about,


leading them to inquire, learn,
and, in the process, "become
enlightened." As Goodson
pointed out, "The beauty of
life is that we can make up
our own interpretations of
these works of art."
"The Tower of
Enlightenment expresses the
symbolism of light and its
relationship to learning,"
Stephens said. "To 'see the
light' is to become enlight-
ened. That is reflective of
being educated and, hopeful-
ly, gaining wisdom. In a grand
way, it is descriptive of the
collegiate experience itself,
and it is truly what we are
about as a community col-
lege." ,

Preparing a special holiday dinner does not
have to be complicated and time consuming.


For a 6-8 Ib semi-boneless fully cooked ham (12-16 servings)
prepare ham following recipe instructions; begin the ham
about 2-2 1/2 hours before you would like to serve.


About 1 hour before your ham is done, rinse sweet potatoes,
pierce several times with a fork, and wrap in foil. Place in oven,
directly on oven rack, with ham. If your family and guests are
hungry, prepare some appetizers with Publix Deli Artichoke
and Spinach Dip served on Nabisco crackers.

Bad scattershot

Two years after Florida lawmakers turned school
offices into criminal checkpoints, the Jessica
Lunsford Act is still casting too broad a net. Just ask
telephone repairman Fred Gray, who was denied
access to Orange County schools because he was
cited in 1971 for hunting wild hogs out of season.
Gray spent months persuading Orange County offi-
cials that he was neither a sexual predator nor a dan-
ger to children and that his hunting case had-been dis-
missed. But his travails speak to the scattershot way
the state and school districts have responded to the
campus screening portion of the Lunsford Act, a pro-
vision that received virtually no legislative debate.
Under the law, schools are required to screen all
visitors and contractors for any past crimes of "moral
turpitude." As lawmakers have discovered in commit-
tee hearings over the past two legislative sessions,
that edict has led to considerable confusion. It has
captured parents on visits to their own children, con-
struction workers on portions of the campus that are
isolated from students and workers who restock vend-
ing machines.
What's more, the crimes often have little to do with
children or sexual abuse and sometimes have not even
resulted in convictions.
This mess should have been cleaned up last year,
but at least the Senate is considering a bill (SB 988)
this session to streamline the background checks and
bring some measure of practicality.
As if to underscore the absurdities implied by cur-
rent law, the Senate bill would specifically exempt
from screening such school visitors as: delivery and
pickup services, workers separated by chain-link
fence from classrooms, ambulance drivers, and police
officers.
The Lunsford Act, named after the brutally mur-
dered 9-year-old Citrus County girl, was intended pri-
marily to assure that sexual predators are carefully
watched by local law enforcement. School officials
need also to be vigilant and to make sure students are
protected on campus. But lawmakers owe the school
districts more precision about their responsibilities
and more latitude in how to carry them out.
If the milkman will be watched by school personnel
while he makes his delivery to the cafeteria and he
has no contact with children, why would he need to be
fingerprinted and screened?
The law can be streamlined without compromising
the safety of schoolchildren.

An editorial excerpt from the St. Petersburg Times.


There's one more driver out there


For the past year I have sat
nervously next to my daughter
as she has learned how to drive
and how not to drive.
Last week, I set her loose.,
I heard comments from a lot
of people as the date grew near-
er that her having her driver's
license would make my life a
little less stressful.
I'm still waiting.
Briana having her license
does save me a trip to Avon
Park and back to Sebring in the
middle of the day at least two
days a week. It also gives me
the opportunity to continue my
work without a break ... not that
that's a good thing.
The savings will eventually
show in the gas consumption of
my car, the high odometer read-
ing and the wear and tear on my
tires. Of course, now there are
two cars at my house that will
need to be maintained, fed and
insured.
And, I will admit that so far
she's been a big help in taking
her brother to school early in
the morning so I can come
straight into the office. And,
she's been happy to take him to
the ball field until I can get
there.


AT RANDOM

Romona Washington

Yes, maybe there are some
benefits, but the stress hasn't
lessen that I can tell.
She calls when she gets in
her car and calls again when she
reaches her destination but it's
the in-between time that I have
my ears glued to the scanner. If
she doesn't call by the time I
think she should, I start pacing
the floor.
I know that Briana is a good
driver. She took driver's educa-
tion, now a voluntary class and
not required by all teens ready
to put keys in the ignition. She
also took TeenSmart, a class
offered through Allstate.
She has spent hours behind
the wheel with either myself or


my parents in the seat next to
her. She has encountered ani-
mals that have darted in front of
her, cars that have pulled out in
front of her and nothing short of
simple idiots who have some-
how been given a license to
drive on our roadways.
She has dealt with the sun
glaring in her eyes and the rain
pelting the windshield so hard
she could hardly see out.
She's heard her 10-year-old
brother's backseat advice on
driving and her frantic mother's
gasp when she was doing noth-
ing wrong. (Let me tell you, it's
different when you've been the
sole driver in your family for
five years and all of a sudden
you are moved over to the pas-
senger seat. You kind of forget
what it's like to travel down the
road in the passenger seat.)
And, she's dealt with her pro-
tective mother.
I share all of this with you
not because she's a bad driver
or because I think she's the best
teen driver out there.
I share this with you to sim-
ply ask that each one of you be
careful when you're out there
on the roadways. My daughter
is now out there among you and


I don't want her to become a
statistic. She's very important
to me and I love her greatly.
I've done everything I can to
make sure she's as good a driv-
er as possible. I've warned her
that many accidents are not
caused by the driver who did
something wrong, but often
times by another driver who is
not paying attention or driving
the way they should under the
current circumstances. I don't
want her to be either one of
those drivers.
I also write this on behalf of
all parents who have young
loved ones out there driving.
We want all motorists to be
safe. Everyone who is behind
the wheel of a vehicle on the
road is someone's mother,
someone's father, someone's
brother or sister, someone's son
or someone's daughter.
Let's all drive safely and
think about who may be driving
in the car nearest you.

How I overcame my Is 'pork' the


addiction to coffee


According to
Business Week mag-
azine, two-thirds of
all American adults
will take the time to

drink a few cups of coffee
before scampering off to
work, rather than sleep in,
take a shower or even brush
their teeth. Until a few
months ago, I was one of
those addicts.
Every addiction starts out
as an experiment, develops
into a habit and then becomes
something you can't live
without, and so it was with
me. But over time I found less
and less pleasure in what used
to be my favorite drink, so I
began the quest for that deli-
cious and stimulating brew I
remembered from the past.
The first thing I did was to
replace my old percolator
with a brand new drip grind,
but the coffee still tasted odd,
so I bought another, more
expensive one, which had its
own charcoal water filter.
Unfortunately it yielded the
same flat, slightly bitter fla-
vored coffee as the old pot.
Then I began to suspect it
might be something the bean
growers in Colombia were
doing, so I switched brands. I
worked my way through
generic, flavored, inexpen-
sive, very expensive and
"How much?!" I even invest-
ed in an electric coffee bean
grinder, but it didn't help.
At last count I owned three
coffee makers and there were
several different types of
ground and whole bean cof-
fees available in my kitchen
for experimentation.
Finally, my doctor verified


what I already sus-
pected. She explained
that as we age, our
taste buds begin to
wear out, become less


sensitive and some actually
disappear. There's no cure;
it's simply a part of life.
As she and I discussed this
I recalled that some other
favorites of mine like pizza
and tuna fish had been deleted
from my grocery list for lack
of taste. I was forced to admit
the problem was not with the
coffee, but with my taste buds
or rather the absence of them.
I was forced to surrender to
the inevitable.
Mark Twain said, "Habit is
habit and not to be flung out
the window by any man, but
coaxed down the stairs a step
at a time." With that wise
quotation in mind, I decided
to ease off slowly, rather than
quit in one fell swoop.
My daily consumption
dropped from eight cups to
six; then I tried filling the
mug to the halfway mark, and
a few days later was able to
drop it to a third of a cup.
Soon came the day when I
was able to get through an
entire 24-hour period with no
coffee at all.
Since then, I've renewed
my acquaintance with herbal
tea, hot chocolate and, of
course, that old standby,
water; all of which happily, I
can still enjoy. I've found
some unexpected benefits
since I quit; most notably I
sleep better, don't feel jittery
anymore and as an added
perk, if you'll excuse the pun,
there's more space on my
kitchen counter.


accountability?

Editor:
I'd like to make a couple of
comments about Zane
Thomas' letter to the editor in
Highlands Today on Monday,
March 26, titled "Account-
ability Overdue." Mr.
Thomas, have you even
looked at the bill that the
House of Representatives
passed?
If you had, you would have
noticed a whole lot of money
for items other than our
valiant troops and that's
exactly why President Bush
should veto it. How exactly
did the Democrats get enough
votes to pass this bill? Seems
to me the votes were bought:
$25 million for spinach grow-
ers who suffered because of E
Coli, $252 million for dairy
farmers, $1.5 million for
"livestock assistance,"
money to tropical fish breed-
ers, and money for peanut
storehouse construction.
Mr. Thomas, can you
please explain to the fine
folks of Highlands County
how this is accountability? I
think it's called "pork" and
for any representative of the
People's House to have voted
for this bill just tells me
exactly who they are looking
out for, and it is certainly not
our brave men and women in
uniform who are protecting
us from terrorism. If you


don't believe me, go online
and take a look at HR20 -
Accountability is not the
name of this game!

Editor:
A big, big thanks for the
AARP advocates. My neigh-
bor, Delta Blaney, is a mem-
ber of this wonderful organi-
zation. Since she knew I was
on Medicaid and also have
SSI (Supplemental Security
Income), Delta told me about
the Florida Lifeline
Assistance Program.
I filled out an application
and six weeks later when my
phone bill came in the mail, I
had received a credit of $18.


What a wonderful surprise -
it made my day.
This AARP advocate also
informed me that if a person
is on Food Stamps, has a
child who receives school
lunches, lives in federal pub-
lic housing or has low
income, that person is eligi-
ble to participate in the tele-
phone savings program that
reduces the cost of phone
service. If you don't have a
phone, you can also get a dis-
count on the installation.
I still can't believe I will be
saving $18 each and every
month. Wow! That's $216 a
year.

already have cast a shadow on
the budgeting process. A clear
message has been sent that
money is tight, and legislators
will be looking for ways to
refine their lists of priorities
to a manageable size.
Words like "investment"
will be tossed around with
great frequency, as the con-
cept of getting something in
return for dollars spent is
always more palatable than
money expended with no
meaningful accountability.
While the goal of the state
budget is obviously to make
good spending decisions with
our limited dollars, it can be
argued that a significant
investment will be made by
default on certain issues
whether or not even one dol-
lar of additional funding is
appropriated by state legisla-
tors.
Such is certainly the case
with community mental
health services.
Last year, the issue of
underfunded mental health
concerns received consider-
able media attention as many
Floridians heard the term
"forensic beds" for the first
time in reference to the sys-
tem's inability to move jailed
inmates with mental illness to
a state hospital setting until
they were deemed capable of
facing charges against them.
The law requires that these
vulnerable inmates be moved
within 15 days of incarcera-
tion, but a waiting list that
topped 300 created a logjam

and one that will
require nearly $50
million annually to
fix.
While that single


issue received a great deal of
attention, it is merely the tip
of the iceberg due to a long
history of ignoring funding
needs. Florida currently ranks
48th in the country in per-
capita spending for mental
health services, 47th in
Medicaid spending for child
beneficiaries and 43rd in
Medicaid spending for adult
beneficiaries.
Florida also ranks second
in the number of homeless,
first in the number of substan-
tiated reports of child abuse
and neglect, second in the
number of children in juve-
nile detention facilities and
third in the number of prison
inmates. A significant portion
of these problems can be
traced to the lack of mental
health care. It is an embar-
rassing and unfortunate state-
ment about our lack of com-
mitment to care for those with
mental illness by adequately
funding proven and cost-
effective local mental-health
programs.
The success of these pro-
grams in communities across
our state proves time after
time that treatment and com-
munity supports work and
that access to local mental
health care is the key to pro-
viding patients with much-
needed help at a reasonable
cost to taxpayers.
While our national rank-
ings prove that we are
nowhere close to acceptable
funding levels for community
mental health services, there
already are signs that some
lawmakers may be ready to
push this issue out of public
view for yet another year.
If that is the case, they still
will be investing in the mental
health system by forcing enti-
ties that are far less prepared
to shoulder an unfair portion
of tihe responsibility. Without
funding of community-based


services, the Legislature will
by default be investing in hos-
pital inpatient services, emer-
gency-room care, shelters,
foster care, juvenile detention
facilities, jails and prisons.
In 2005, the U.S.
Department of Justice esti-
mated that more than half of
all prison and jail inmates in
the United States had a mental
health or substance abuse
problem. It also has been esti-
mated that more than 2 mil-
lion individuals with some
type of mental illness are
admitted to U.S. jails each
year, and that approximately
72 percent of jail inmates
have a mental or substance
use disorder.
A legacy of inaction also
can be seen in our city's
streets and parks as the esti-
mated homeless population in
Florida on any night was
nearly 86,000 in 2006. It is
estimated that 24 percent of
those are mentally ill and 37
percent have alcohol and/or
drug problems.
The problem is not going
away, but with diminishing
funding of community mental
health programs, it certainly
can get worse. Between now
and the anticipated closing of
the 2007 legislative session
on May 4, an investment will
be made in the mental health
system by our legislators; the
question is whether a good
return on that investment will
be realized or if another
opportunity to use our limited
resources wisely will be
squandered. Will we choose
to make a positive investment
or a negative investment in
our most vulnerable citizens?
We cannot afford to ignore
funding community mental
health services for yet another
year. The cost would simply,
be too great

Do you know

the way to

Santa Fe?
When we registered at
the campground beyond
Aztec, N.M., we were told
there was only one restau-
rant in town: Vera's
Kitchen. We set up the tent
and then headed for dinner.
As soon as we walked in,
we knew we were in trou-
ble. Vera was talking with
some cowboy at the bar
and resented BJ asking that
we be seated.
We both ordered burri-
tos, mild. We decided the
waitress got her revenge on
BJ when she brought our
food. BJ's burritos were
closer to nuclear than edi-
ble. I finally took pity on
her and suggested we
trade, since she was obvi-
ously in pain from the heat
of the sauce. She couldn't
believe I was eating with-
out difficulty, because we
both thought I couldn't
handle spicy food. When
we traded, it turned out
that the food I had been
served was actually even
hotter than the food with
which BJ had started.
She's never let me forget
that I showed no sign of
discomfort from eating
potentially deadly spiced
food. Well, except for that
little moustache of water I
got, but who's telling?
A major thunderstorm
was coming and BJ
thought we should prepare
the car in case it stormed
and we had to evacuate to
sleep in the car. The storm
went around us without
losing a drop, but the cat-
alytic heater gave up in the
middle of the night and we
froze in our finally dry
sleeping bags (three days
after the hail storm).
While at the Tourist
Information Station in
Pike's Peak, a gentleman
rushed in, all flustered and
asked if there were any
hostels in the area. The
guide and he leafed
through the Hostel
Directory
(www.hostelz.com/hos
tel/21434-Santa-Fe-
International-Hostel).
Meanwhile, the tourist
ranted on and on about
how wonderful the hostel
in Santa Fe was. BJ really
had no choice when we hit
Santa Fe. We found the
hostel quickly, dropped our
baggage and headed out to
be tourists.
Our first stop was the
"Oldest House in the
United States." On our way
in, through the gift shop of
course, a man and his son
exited the museum. Both
BJ and I noticed they
looked like they'd seen at
least one ghost. We soon
found out why. All the
"people" depicting original
settlers were actually
skeletons dressed in pio-
neer costumes. It was
absolutely macabre. Next,
we visited the "Oldest
Church in the United
States." This was not bet-
ter. The skeletons were
buried in glass-topped
grave sites, lined up like
pews. We split.
As an aside, St.
Augustine also claims the
oldest house in the United
States. If its claim is true,
it actually has the older
house (http://en.wikipedia.
org/wiki/OldestHouse in
the_USA).

was the play by Ira Levin

says he's enjoyed learning
from such knowledgeable

small town and watched
Gomer Pyle growing up. I
remember the jokes and the
accent. This is a fun charac-

will be smiling when they
leave," Moore said.
Ben Whitledge, his nerv-

'Shooter' barely misses the mark


A presidential assassina-
tion, guns, constant shooting,
and explosions.
Sound interesting? If it
does,. then "Shooter" is the
film for you. If not ... well, go
see something else.
"Shooter" tells the story of
former Marine Corps sharp-
shooter Bob Lee Swagger
(Mark Wahlberg). He's one of
the best snipers the Marines
have to offer. But after his
partner is killed and he is left
for dead during a covert mis-
sion in Ethiopia, he returns to
the United States disillu-
sioned and lives in isolation
high in the mountains.
But his quiet life is turned
upside down when he is asked
by the government to use his
considerable sharpshooting
experience to prevent a presi-
dential assassination. Of
course, things aren't what
they seem, and Swagger ends
up being set up and framed
for the botched assassination,
and he's forced to go on the
run.
The rest of the movie fol-
lows Swagger as he is doing
one of two things either run-
ning away from the FBI and
other organizations after him,
or killing those that were
responsible for his situation in
the first place.
"Shooter" has an interest-
ing plot that is engaging,
although at just over two
hours, the movie drags at
times. But the film does run
into a couple of problems.
First of all, Wahlberg's per-
formance as Sgt. Swagger is
just flat and emotionless,
which is unfortunate since his
'character is the one the film
revolves around. And his per-
formance is crucial to the
movie.
The corrupt Colonel Isaac
ohnson (Danny Glover), the
mastermind of the Swagger
setup, is another character

When one door closes, another opens


As I stared at the exterior
door off the rear of the old log
cabin, I noticed that it may be
the only part of the house that
has any paint on it. And it has
been many years since a paint
brush has touched this door.
The texture and movement
of the door knob speaks to the
age of this ancient door. The
grain and rough cut of the
wood from which it is con-
structed tells you that it was
not bought at Lowe's or Home
Depot, but cut from an old
saw mill.


I stand back and
look at this door and
imagine the pride and
craftsmanship that
went into its hanging
and use. But it has
been a long time since
anyone has looked at
this door with any sat-
isfaction or pleasure.
A sign nailed on the
wall declares this
structure unsafe and
warns against going
through this door. The
door has been shut,

Mom decides to support son's decision
I received a number Dear Abby excellent one, and an
of e-mails in response option I and I'll
to the letter from Jeanne Phillips bet many of my read-
"Cleveland Mom" ers did not know


(Feb. 25), whose twins -
both juniors in high school -
had been approached at
school by military recruiters
"who made the military sound
exciting and glamorous."
Here is one response:
Dear Abby:
I have a son, 17, and a 14-
year-old daughter. Both have
met with military recruiters
from almost all the branches
at school. At first, I was furi-
ous. However, my husband
and I decided to meet with
each recruiter and discuss the
options with our son. He
thought we'd oppose his join-
ing and wanted to shut us out.
As a mom, I don't want my
child to die in a war no
parent does. As a citizen who
values our soldiers defending
our nation, I couldn't be
prouder of our servicemen
and women.
Our children will do as they
choose. At 18, they can enlist.
Our choice is whether to be a
part of it. Personally, I want
to be a part of my son's life,
so I will support him in every
way possible and pray several
times a day.

Serviceman and Possibly a
Servicewoman

ing to your children was an

barricaded and
locked and the wel-
come sign placed
before this door
reads, "Do not
Enter."
The truth is, I hate
it when a door I want
to enter is closed
against me. There is
something about a
"Do not enter" sign
that makes me feel a
little rebellious. I see
the sign and I start
looking for a way to


help me gain
entrance (Do not worry, I did
not break in). We are so use to
getting what we want that
when a door is shut, it is hard
for us to accept.
The good news is, if God


shuts one door, he opens
another. Often God has to
shut a door in our face so that
he can subsequently open the
door through which he wants
us to go.
Perhaps there is a beautiful
door in your life, you want to
walk through this door but it
is shut and you cannot find
the key. Remember, you can
always knock. But, if it does
not open for you, get ready,
there is another door about to
open and lead you to a place
you could not even imagine.

Workshop focuses


on 'The Secret'


New Ground


performs concerts


SEBRING A showing of
the movie, "The Secret," will
be offered at 10 a.m. Saturday
at Unity of Sebring, 204 S.
Orange St., in downtown
Sebring. Doors open at 9:30
a.m. for workshop registra-
tion. The movie will be fol-
lowed by lunch and a work-
shop at Hammock Inn
Restaurant in Highlands
Hammock State Park .
"The Secret" has existed
throughout the history of
mankind. It has been discov-
ered, coveted, suppressed,
hidden, lost and recovered. It
has been hunted down, stolen,
and bought for vast sums of
money. Now for the first time
in history, "The Secret" is
being revealed to the world.
A number of exceptional
men and women discovered
"The Secret" and went on to
become known as the greatest
people who ever lived.
Among them: Plato,
Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo,
Napoleon, Hugo, Beethoven,
Lincoln, Edison, Einstein and
Carnegie, to name but a few.
Fragments of "The Secret"
have been found in oral tradi-
tions, literature, and religions
and philosophies throughout
the centuries. For the first
time, all the pieces of "The
Secret" come together in an
incredible revelation, which
will be life transforming for
all who experience it.
ISome of today's greatest
teachers will be presented in
"The Secret" and will impart
this special wisdom that has
been known by so few. They
include some of the world's
leaders in the fields of busi-
ness, economics, medicine,
psychology, history, theology
and science. Each of these
teachers is living proof of
"The Secret;" each of them a
walking marvel of achieve-
ment and success.
h Included are: 'Miracle
Man' Morris Goodman; who
tells his awe-inspiring story
of how he recovered from
paralysis by using "The
Secret;" Dr. Denis Waitley,
who used various aspects of
"The Secret" in training
Olympic athletes and Apollo
astronauts to reach new
heights of human endeavor;
best-selling authors and
philosophers including Bob
Proctor, John Assaraf, James
Ray and Joe Vitale, explain
how they have created lives
of phenomenal success utiliz-
ing "The Secret;" and doctors
in the fields of medicine and
quantum physics explain the
science behind "The Secret."
"The Secret" reveals amaz-
ing real life stories and testi-
monials of regular people
who have changed their lives
in profound ways. By apply-
ing "The Secret," they present
instances of eradicating dis-
ease, acquiring massive
wealth, overcoming obstacles
and achieving what many
would regard as impossible.
"The Secret" teaches how
to apply this powerful knowl-
edge to your life in every area
from health to wealth, to suc-
cess and relationships. "The
Secret" is everything you
have dreamed of ... and is
beyond your wildest dreams.
After the movie, the work-
shop will move to Highlands
Hammock State Park to enjoy
lunch and discussion at
Hammock Inn Restaurant.
After lunch, there will be an
opportunity to go for a walk
through the hammock and
return to the picnic area
where they will clarify their
desires, then create vision
boards and participate in
focused discussion groups.
Both the workshop and movie
are presented on a love offer-

LAKE PLACID Sebring was still
showing signs of spring break fever
Thursday night, but rallied in the top of the
fourth inning and cruised to a 9-1 non-dis-
trict win over Lake Placid.
Lady Streaks pitcher Kendall Carson
scattered three hits over seven innings to


earn the victory, and the hard-throw-
ing right-hander added a single and a
two-run double to help her cause.
With the score tied at 1 apiece,
Carson opened the fourth inning with
a single up the middle and Hannah
Shoop followed with a blast to right.

Devils topped the Lady Streaks by the
same match score.
The only loss of the day for the Sebring
boys was at No. 3 singles, where Avon

Adams was called out for leaving

This led to a discussion and stoppage of
play and the officials ruled that Negrin was

LESSON


10 YEARS AGO
March 31, 1997: Avon Park pitcher Chad Pritchett improved his record to 5-1 with a 1.26 ERA, by
topping a much improved Lake Placid squad, 3-2. When the two teams had last played, a little over a
year prior, the Red Devils had trounced the Green Dragons 20-5, but it took Avon Parks best effort to
come out on top this time around.
25 YEARS AGO
April 2, 1982: Sebring pitcher Kevin Ferguson pitched a four-hitter, giving up just one run while strik-
ing out nine, as the Blue Streaks ended a ten-game losing streak with a 10-1 win over Lemon Bay. Jerry
Yarbough and Ferguson each had two RBIs to aid in the victory.

TODAY'S TIP

., Pump It Up
T' he pump drill is one of the
1 'vays to get the club on an
i .'-out path. Take your normal

1 .. i"mnping action of three times
up 'd back down, making sure
S e time you bring the club
, .,' n that the shaft stays in line
I, I the right forearm and the
St\. angle is still cocked. On
41 t l, third pump, you swing
S .. wn and try to feel the previ-
Sus two rehearsal pumps, and
the club will follow the mus-
cle memory of this. This is a
great drill for slicers.

Country Club
of Sebring
4800 Haw Branch Road, Sebring
382-3500
Year built: 1979 (first
nine), 1993 (second nine)
Course designer: Ron
Garl
Head Pro: Keith Winslow
Hours: 7 a.m.-5 p.m.
Rates: $39 (winter); $20
(summer)
Course description:
Carved through a natural
setting, the Country Club of
Sebring layout has plenty of
tee selections to challenge
golfers of every level. With
pine and oak trees framing
most holes and a lot of huge
bunkers, accuracy is a
bonus, but length isn't nec-
essary to get out with a
good score. There are also
plenty of mounds to offer
even more of a challenge,
especially when golfers
stray out of the fairway off
the tee or miss the greens
on the approach.


Course length: 4,938
yards (front tees)-6,714
yards (back tees)
Rating/slope: 71.1/123
(gold), 69.3/119 (blue),
66.4/111 (white), 67.4/116
(red)
Amenities: Restaurant
and bar, putting green, driv-
ing range, tennis courts,
pool
High-handicapper tip:
Keep the ball in the fairway
off the tee and be able to
chip and putt.
Low-handicapper tip:
Most of the holes have a
dogleg to the left, so the
course sets up well for
those who can draw the
ball, especially off the tee.


county's shortest 18-hole
course was originally the
Sun 'N Lake south course,
then was known as Lake
Country until the recent
change to Crystal Creek.
The fairly wide-open, par 64
layout offers plenty of room
off the tees, but most holes
have water in play. The
greens are small, but have
plenty of break and most
are well guarded by bunkers
or water hazards.
Course length: 4,232
yards (front tees)-4,743
yards (back tees)
Amenities:
restaurant/bar, putting
green, driving range
High-handicapper tip:
Watch out for hidden haz-
ards around the greens. A
lot of holes have at least
one trouble spot that is hard
to see from the fairway.
Low-handicapper tip:
Leave the driver at home
and use the short course to
work on iron play.


(blue tees), 68.6/121
(white), 66.0/115 (silver),
70.5/119 (red), 67.4/108
(yellow)
Amenities: restaurant,
pool, driving range, tennis
courts, putting green
High-handicapper tip:
There are multiple tees to
choose from, so pick the set
that is right for you. Keeping
the ball in the fairway is key
from any of the tees, howev-
er.
Low-handicapper tip: Be
able to work the ball both
left and right, since most
holes feature a dogleg.

reward risk-takers.
Highland Ridge North
4100 Carter Creek Road, Avon Park
453-9991
Year built: 2002
Course designer: David
Harmon
Head Pro: Jesse Boston
Hours: 7 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
Rates: $51 (winter); $25
(summer)
Course description: The
newest course in Highlands
County, Highlands Ridge
North is also known as the
toughest and is the longest
when played from the back
tees. A true test for all
golfers, the North course
has very little flat ground,
and the swales can make
even a shot from the middle
of the fairway a challenge.
The greens are large but
are very fast and sloped,
and are also well guarded
by bunkers. The course
weaves through a wetlands
conservation area, which is
marked by green-topped red
stakes and is totally off lim-
its.
Course length: 5,000
yards (front tees)-7,234
yards (back tees)
Rating/slope: 76.1/140
(black), 73.2/137 (blue),
70.5/127 (white), 67.4/118
(gold), 71.2/119 (red)
Amenities: putting green,
driving range, snack bar
High-handicapper tip:
Spend a lot of time on the
putting green before your
round to get used to the
speed of the greens.
Low-handicapper tip:
Course management is a
big key here. Place your
shots well.


Course description: The
original Highlands Ridge
layout, the South course is a
different golf experience
from its big brother to the
north. The front side is short
and very tight, making accu-
racy a priority. Venture just a
little off the fairway, and it's
time to take a drop. The
back nine opens up and lets
golfers breathe a little easi-
er, but is still a challenge.
The course is dotted with
deep and soft bunkers that
make even the short holes a
challenge. There are also
well-placed mounds on most
holes that can lead to some
challenging lies.
Course length: 4,469
yards (front tees)-6,176
yards (back tees)
Rating/slope: 69.8/129
(blue), 67.3/123 (white),
64.0/117 (gold), 65.8/118
(red)
Amenities: putting green,
driving range, restaurant
High-handicapper tip:
Use whatever club you need
to hit it straight, especially
on the front side where
there is very little room for
error.
Low-handicapper tip:
Leave the driver alone on
most holes, but be aggres-
sive when you can.
Lake June West
1507 Lake June Road, Lake Placid
465-2888
General Manager: Kelly
Reynolds
Hours: 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m.
Rates: $12-15 (winter);
$9-12 (summer)
Course description: The
r ne-hole Lake June West
layout is open and offers
two sets of tees to give
golfers a different look on
each loop. There is water on
only one hole, but golfers
can face some tough lies if
they miss the green. The
course offers golfers a
chance to use almost every
iron in the bag and is a
great place to practice.
Course length: 2,152
yards (front tees)-2,706
yards (back tees)

Placid Lakes
3601 Placid Lakes Blvd., Lake Placid
465-4333
Year built: 1968
(redesigned in 2005)
Course design: Highland
Golf
Head Pro: Jeff Moorman
Hours: 7 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
Rates: $40 (winter); $20
(summer)
Course description: The
course layout is the same,
but almost everything else
about Placid Lakes is new
since the recent facelift. The
course is a tight one with
water on 14 holes. Several
fairways are bordered by
the wet stuff on either side,
so accuracy is a key. The
all-new greens are Tif-Eagle
grass and large, but very
sloped, very fast and very
well protected. One of the
county's more challenging
courses, Placid Lakes worth
the drive south just to see
all of the improvements that
have been made.
Course length: 5,207
yards (front tees)-
7,010yards (back tees)
Rating/slope: 73.4/128
(blue), 70.4/124 (white),
67.1/114 (men's gold),
72.4/124 (women's gold),
69.0/116 (red)
Amenities: putting green,
driving range, bar, restau-
rant
High-handicapper tip:
Pick the right set of tees
and remember that coming
up short of the green is bet-
ter than going over on most
holes.
Low-handicapper tip:,
Focus on shot placement
and don't always go for the
longest club. Driver can get
you into trouble on a lot of
holes.

River Greens
47 Lake Damon Dr., Avon Park
453-5210
Year built: Completed in
1974.
Course designer:
George and Rodney Davis
Head Pro: Jason Beatty
Hours: 6:30 a.m.-5 p.m.
Rates: $38 (winter); $20
(summer)
Course description:
Highlands County's north-
ernmost course is also one
of its more unique. The
-rather shoTt layout is also-
very tight on the par 35 front
nine. The back nine opens
up and features three par-5s
in the final four holes. Shot
placement is a key at River
Greens, both off the tee and
on approach shots. The
greens are some of the
toughest around with a lot of
slope, making where golfers
put their ball on the green a
key to a good round on the
always-enjoyable layout.
Course length: 4,978
yards (front tees)-
6,092yards (back tees)
Rating/slope: 68.8/1119
(blue), 67.4/1146 (white),
69.5/109 (red)
Amenities: putting green,
driving range, bar/restaurant
High-handicapper tip:
Be smart off the tee and
around the greens. Keep
the ball below the hole and
high handicappers can
score well here.
Low-handicapper tip:
Leave the driver alone on
the front nine, then let it rip
on the back. Take advan-
tage of the reachable par-
5s.

Sebring Golf Club
3129 Golfview Road, Sebring

Year built: 1928
Course designer:
unknown
Head Pro: Tom McClurg
Hours: 7 a.m.-6 p.m.
Rates: $28-40 (winter);
$15-20 (summer)
Course description: One
of the oldest courses in the
county, the first nine holes
of "the Muni," as it's known
to locals, was the original
Harder Hall course and was
turned over to the city in the
1950s, when the second
nine was added. A true old-
style course with small, ele-
vated greens and a ton of
doglegs, Sebring.Golf Club
is enjoyable for both men
and women. There is a


good mixture of short and
long holes and the course
offers a good round of golf
in a relaxed atmosphere.
Course length: 4,909
yards (front tees)-6,204
yards (back tees)
Rating/slope: 69.4/120

(yellow)
Amenities: restaurant,
bar, putting green, driving
range
High-handicapper tip:
Keep the ball in the fairway
off the tee. With small


greens, it's important to
have a clean lie in order to
hit it close.
Low-handicapper tip:
Don't be afraid to cut the
corner on the doglegs,
which can turn a 1 0-yard
approach shot into a 50-
yarder.

385-7113
General Manager: Mark
Baker
Hours: 7 a.m.-sunset
Rates: $10-14 (winter);
$7 per day (summer)
Course description: The
smallest course in
Highlands County had one
of the biggest names in golf
at its opening in 1963 when
Arnold Palmer played in the
first foursome. The course is
a good place for beginners
to learn the game with short
holes and a fairly open lay-
out, although there is some
water to be found. The
course hosts golf socials
and lessons for beginners
and is a great value in the
summer when golfers can
play all day for $7.
Course length: 1,014
yards
Amenities: putting green,
motel, pool, lake access, tea
room.


and can be hard to hit. Five
sets of tees offer a chal-
lenge to all golfers and
there's also the bonus of
getting to play a hole that's
in the "Guinness Book of
World Records" for having
the largest green on the
planet.

Amenities:

tive course, spa
High-handicapper tip:
Don't be afraid to resists the
urge to go-for the green:
Lay up when you need to,
and you can still score well.
Low-handicapper tip:
Place your tee shots to
leave the most makeable
approach shots.

Sun 'N Lake
Deer Run
5223 Sun 'N Lake Blvd., Sebring
385-4830
Year built: 1976
Course designer: Don
Dyer
Pros: Marty O'Hora and
Jose Lule
Hours: 7 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
Rates: $20-46 (winter);
$15-26 (summer)
Course description:
Deer Run is a traditional,
old-style Florida course, cut
through towering pine trees,
which come into play on vir-
tually every hole if golfers
stray too far off the fairways.
Deer Run is one of the
longer courses in the coun-
ty, but is also forgiving, with
plenty of room for error off
the tees as long as you
don't end up behind one of
those towering pines
Course length: 5,357
yards (front tees)-7,023
yards (back tees)
Rating/slope: 74.4/133
(black tees), 73.2/128
(blue), 71.4/125 (white),
70.0/123 (gold), 71.1/123
(red)
Amenities: restaurant,
pool, driving range, tennis
courts, putting green
High-handicapper tip:
Be able to hit driver off the
tee because most holes-are
lengthy and short tee shots
may leave golfers needing a
fairway wood to reach the
green in regulation.
Low-handicapper tip:
With room for error off the
tee, the most important part


of a round at Deer Run is
the approach shots.
Concentrate on getting the
ball close to the pin if you
want to score well.

Sun 'N Lake
Turtle Run
5223 Sun 'N Lake Blvd., Sebring
385-4830
Year built: 1991 (first
nine); 1999 (second nine)
Course designer:
Charles Ankrom
Pros: Marty O'Hora and,
Jose Lule
Hours: 7 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
Rates: $20-46 (winter);
$15-26 (summer)
Course description: The
newer of the two courses at
Sun 'N Lake, Turtle Run is a
totally different golf experi-
ence than Deer Run. The
course is very player friend-
ly in the fact that it is not
very long and the greens
are fairly large, but it's also
much tighter than Deer Run.
The course is cut through
old Florida scrub land and


the palmettos and oak trees
than line almost every hole
can grab many an errant
shot.
Course length: 5,098
yards (front tees)-6,496
yards (back tees)
Rating/slope: 71.5/133
(blue), 69.5/126 (white),
67.9/122 (gold), 69.0/123
(red)
Amenities: restaurant,
pool, driving range, tennis
courts, putting green
High-handicapper tip:
Be sure to focus on keeping
the ball in play, especially
off the tee. Shots that stray
off the fairway can easily be
lost in the brush.
Low-handicapper tip:
Keep the driver in the bag
on most holes. You won't
need it and you'll stay out of
trouble.

Continued from 1D Titans, as the undefeated Avon Park squad squared off against a
Sebring team that came in with just one loss on the season.
The Lady Devils kept that undefeated season going with their only loss, just like the
Sebring boys, coming in No. 3 singles.
In that match-up Lady Streak Ashlee Werhane battled Mary Rose Heston through three sets
for a 2-6, 6-2, 6-2 win.
Heston was picked up by her teammates as Tiffiny Gregor, Angie Carrillo, Bailey Barben
and Michelle Caibio all won their singles matches over Mary Midence, Sheela Joshi, Kelsie
Johnson and Ashlie Jimenez,
respectively.
In doubles, Gregor and
Barben joined forces to beat

Heston combined to top
Werhane and Johnson 6-2, 7-6
