NAACP plans investigation of child s arrest


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
Lateshia Wilson, of Avon Park, is upset Friday afternoon that her six-year-
old daughter was arrested during school and charged with two misde-
meanors and a felony. Wilson was accompanied by legal redress. chairper-
son for the local NAACP chapter Lester Roberts.

The arrest of 6 year-old Desre'e
Watson at Avon Elementary School
caught the attention of the local
NAACP.
School officials removed Watson
from her classroom when she
became disruptive Wednesday morn-
ing. They called the police after fail-
ing to calm her.
"She was throwing chairs and
causing a lot of commotion at the
school creating a situation that was
dangerous to students, staff and fac-
ulty," Avon Park Police Chief Frank
Mercurio said, explaining school
staff waited 20 minutes before ask-
ing his department to intervene.
Accused of hitting and kicking
Lisa Elder, an exceptional student
education teacher who responded to
the situation, Watson was arrested
for battery.
Watson's mother, Lateshia
Wilson, said her daughter is a good
girl, that something must have set
her off.
"Different situations call for dif-


ferent things," principal Pam
Burnham said. "Sometimes the pres-
ence of a law officer will calm a
child down."
After five minutes and a still-out-
of-control situation, Officer Tamara
Neale arrested Watson, cuffing her
and putting her in the back of a
patrol car, the chief said.
Mugshots and
fingerprints were
taken as Watson
was processed into
the Highlands
County Jail.
Watson was
released that atter-
noon to her mother.
W ilson has a " .
copy of the mug WATSON
shot.
"I still don't
feel it was right the way they treated
her," Wilson said. "I have had a con-
ference before, months went by and
I've had no problems."
Mercurio said Watson should be
adjusted to her role as a student by
now.


The National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People is
conducting its own investigation and
is considering a class action lawsuit
against the police department, said
Lester Roberts, legal redress chair-
person for the Highlands chapter of
the NAACP.
He said school staff escalated the
situation, which was further escalat-
ed by Neale.
School officials and his officer
performed exemplary and did exact-
ly what they were supposed to,
Mercurio said.
"I'm 71 and I can't think of any 6-
year-old I can't handle," Roberts
said. "I have a problem with the
police department acting like this to
a 6-year-old."
A woman who answered NAACP
president Brenda Grey's cell phone
Friday said Grey was out of town
until Monday. She referred questions
to Grey's vice presidents.
Grey is a member of the Avon
Park City Council.

From Glades Electric to the Sounds of Sebring, a variety of Highlands County organizations' representatives tour the old state
capitol, which was restored to its 1902 condition and is now a museum.

TALLAHASSEE Highlands County
Day was a three-pronged public relations
assault on the capitol soliciting poten-
tial tourists and residents, informing cur-
rent county residents and working meet-
ings with Tallahassee's decision makers.
Most visible was the county's state fair
booth that included displays by county
staff, the Highlands County Citrus
Growers Association and Tourist
Development Council.
The Florida Boys barbecue team, Float
Planes & Amphibs and Sebring Regional
Airport joined them in promoting
Highlands.
Less visible was the Leadership
Highlands contingent of county movers
and shakers that included school board
members, chamber of commerce execu-
tives, South Florida Community College
officials, business leaders and others.
They toured the state capitol buildings
old and hew. Restored to its 1902 appear-
ance, the former is a museum. Towering
above its predecessor, the "new" 22-
story building is working capitol.

Commerce chief executive officer
Eileen May and Tami Cullins, South
Florida Community College trustee,
visit with each other Thursday in
Tallahassee while they wait to listen to
legislators speak on the 22nd floor of
the state capitol building.
The Highlands tourists listened to leg-
islators and elected officials discuss the
hot topics and sat in on House and Senate
sessions.
Seemingly out of sight were the meet-
ings scheduled for county staff and com-
missioners.


Barbara Stewart was the only commis-
sioner to attend the three days of meet-
ings. Commissioner Don Bates cancelled
due to a previous commitment in
Gainesville, county public information
officer Corine Burgess said.
Wednesday morning, Stewart attended
meetings with the Florida Association of
Counties, the Small Counties Coalition
and the Highlands County delegation -
Sen. J.D. Alexander and Reps. Baxter
Troutman and Denise Grimsley.
County Administrator Carl Cool and
County Engineer Ramon Gavarrete
attended the second two meetings.
Cool, Gavarrete and Stewart joined
Jim Polatty, development services direc-
tor, and other county staff in a meeting
Thursday with the state's Department of
Community Affairs in a discussion on the
county's handling of its comprehensive
plan.
Stewart hung out at the Highlands
booth during lunch, then rejoined county
staff for another DCA meeting, this one
included DCA secretary Tom Pelham for
a discussion about Rural Land
Stewardship, which the county is consid-
ering for two landowners that would total

trial
By MATT MURPHY

SEBRING Thanks to
an appeals court ruling
sought by the state, poten-
tially key testimony in the
upcoming Michael "Tiny"
Branham murder trial will
be allowed after all.
Attorney and friend of
the family W. James Kelly
testified that Branham said
he was planning to kill his
wife, Avon Park attorney
Janette Branham, one week
before the alleged murder
occurred.
Based on his statement,
Kelly was listed as a "per-
son having information"
about the case. In response
to the potentially damaging
testimony, Branham filed a
"Notice of Exercise of
Attorney-Client Privilege,"
in which he said the details

conver-
sation

Te nth BRANHAM
Circuit
Judge Susan W. Roberts
ruled that the conversation
was protected under attor-

because Kelly had repre-
sented Branham in other
legal cases.
The state appealed

Second District Court of
Appeals, asking to have the

Proposed HCSO building no threat to 4-H horse arena


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin. shutt@ newssun. coin
SEBRING Thanks to a
misunderstanding, the 4-H
horse clubs scheduled to
speak at Tuesday's commis-
sion meeting won't.
That's a good thing, said
Dianna Bretz, Cracker Trail
Saddle Club 4-H leader.
Under the impression a pro-
posed Highlands County
Sheriff's Office building at
George Boulevard would
eliminate a barn and parking
at the horse arena behind the


Highlands County Agri-Civic
Center, Bretz worked the
phones.
She got the 4-H program on
the commission agenda, left
messages for Sheriff Susan
Benton, who was in
Tallahassee last week, and
notified the media.
Meanwhile, Bits and Bridle
Club leader Marlene Welborn
got on the horn with commis-
sioners Barbara Stewart,
Andrew Jackson and chair-
man C. Guy Maxcy.
"I tried to call her twice,"


Bretz said Friday afternoon
during a phone interview,
explaining she hadn't heard
from the sheriff.
About 15 minutes after the
News-Sun contacted Benton's
office for comment, a relieved
Bretz called to say her con-
cern was for naught.
"I'm calling them right now
to take us off," she said, when
asked if the need remained to
address the commissioners.
According to maps of the
proposed site for Benton's
new offices, a red dotted line


depicting the county's proper-
ty was mistaken as the build-
ing's footprint, HCSO chief of
staff Lisa McGehee said.
"We're very sensitive of the
arena, of their presence,"
McGehee said of 4-H.
Even before Benton called
Bretz on Friday, Bretz and
Welborn said they supported
the sheriff's move to the area.
They just wanted to ensure
the county was thinking about
them and their facilities in its
planning.
"It makes absolute sense


that the sheriff's office move
out there," Welborn said, not-
ing that the Emergency
Operations Center, Emer-
gency Medical Technicians
and the fuel pumps are
already in place at George
Boulevard.
Other items on the county's
agenda include approval of a
pipeline crossing agreement
for E-Stone, declaring county
property surplus for auction,
approval of a non-medical
transport license, a notice of
nuisance for 160 Zion St.,


Lake Placid, a grant contract
for the Boys & Girls Club of
Highlands County and budget
amendments.
. In addition, Anne
Bouhebent, executive director
of Early Learning Coalition
Critical Child Care Needs,
will make a presentation and
the board will be asked to pro-
claim April as Child Abuse
and Neglect Prevention
Month.
The board meetings are at 9
a.m. the first four Tuesdays
each month.

Visitors to the state capitol in Tallahassee on Thursday practically tripped over the Highlands County
booth (the same one used at the state fair) that was strategically placed between the old capitol building
(right) and the new. Two race cars, a 'micro-light' aircraft and the Florida Boys barbecue trailer were
among the attractions that traveled the five to six hours from Highlands to put the county on the map
with tourists and legislators.

TALLAHASSEE The
county spent about $35,000
for a booth positioned
between Florida's old and
new capitol buildings.
That county was Volusia,
however, according to
Leadership Highlands offi-
cials at the state capitol
Thursday for Highlands
County Day.
Gaylin Thomas, adminis-
trative assistant to South
Florida Community College's
dean of applied science and
an organizer of the trip, said
Leadership Highlands' budget
of $3,500 was funded by
donations.
The figure doesn't include
the manpower, canopies and
tables provided by the county.
"We wanted to show
Tallahassee what Highlands
County is all about," county
spokeswoman Corine Burgess
said. "I would like to think a
lot more Tallahasseeans know
about Highlands County."
With displays by Highlands
County Citrus Growers
Association, Tourist
Development Council,
Florida Boys barbecue team,
Sebring Regional Airport and
Float Planes & Amphibs,
Burgess said the county por-
trayed itself well.
"We have one of the most
beautiful environmental areas
in the state," Burgess said.

Haynes accused of
forging government

document, stealing

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING After a three-
month investigation, authori-
ties arrested the former exec-
utive of a not-for-profit hous-
ing agency for allegedly steal-
ing from it.
Kenneth Ryan Haynes, 27,
of Sebring, was arrested
Friday morning on single
counts of grand theft and for-
gery, second- and third-
degree felonies, respectively.
The former has a maximum
penalty of 15 years imprison-
ment and the latter, five years.
The Highlands County
Sheriff's Office said Haynes
posted the $6,000 cash bond
the same day..
From February 2005 until
his resignation in October
2006, Haynes was executive
director of Highlands County
Housing Authority (a non-
profit, quasi-governmental
agency not to be confused
with the board of county com-
missioners' Housing
Department).
Haynes resigned simultane-
ously with his board's Oct. 27
decision to -fire him after it
discovered he allegedly


opened a line of credit in the
Authority's name without
approval and incurred a
$44,000 balance.
It wasn't the first time
Haynes left a non-profit in
disgrace.
For about seven months in
2005, while volunteering with
the Housing Authority,
Haynes was executive direc-
tor of the Highlands
Emergency Recovery
Operations.
HERO
board pres-
ident Jane
Breylinger
s a i d
Haynes had
"prepaid"
himself
$15,000, an
HAYNES unautho-
HAYNES rized prac-
tice that, at
the time, wasn't explicitly
prohibited.
He was allowed to repay
the sum, walking away from
HERO without prosecution
and continuing his work at the
Housing Authority as an
unpaid executive director.
Haynes wasn't as fortunate
the next time, even though his
father-in-law (not named in
any of the documents the
News-Sun obtained) went to
Highlands Independent Bank
on Oct. 20, 2006, and offered


to pay off the debt if the
Authority wouldn't prosecute.
According to the probable
cause affidavit for Haynes'
arrest warrant, the father-in-
law helped him get a loan to
cover the line of credit.
Nonetheless, the Housing
Authority board asked the
state attorney's office Dec. 20
to investigate.
Jeanette Dugas, a Bartow-
based investigator with the
state attorney's office, said
Haynes wrote checks totaling
$39,550 to himself, $800 to
his pest control business
Ryzicon, $1,200 to wife
Kristin Haynes and $2,990 for
personal expenses.
"At one point, the balance
... reached over $49,000," she
said in the affidavit, noting
that $16,000 was used to pur-
chase a Nissan XTerra. "Some
(expenses) remain uncatego-
rized and it is unknown
whether they relate to the
Housing Authority or to Ryan
Haynes."
The alleged improprieties
surfaced Oct. 2 or 3, when the
board learned it missed a pay-
ment on a line of credit it
once considered but never
approved.
Haynes is accused of forg-
ing Housing Authority board
minutes to establish the cred-
it, %which allegedly resulted in
the theft. 1

As a child Elizabeth Ann Kent climbed rocks and swung in a park bordering he'r backyard in Easton,
Mass., a'small suburb of Boston. She played ball with her uncle who was also her teacher. She had the
run of the town with lots of cousins and friends.They all spent summers on Cape Cod sailing and build-
ing sandcastles with parents, uncles and aunts.

She graduated from the University of Massachusetts,Amherst as a registered nurse and joined the Navy.
After helping with the Vietnam evacuation on Guam in 1975, she left active duty and later became a
commander in the U.S. Naval Reserves.

In 1976, she married Michael Slear and began her journey as a wife and mother.With her subtle wit,
beautiful grace and giving heart, she nurtured Carly and Dale with the same traits.

Beth inspired many at Primary Medical Associates for 28 years and many more at the Myrtle Beach
Church of Christ as the ladies Bible study teacher for 10 years.

We know she will be remembered by the many people she touched in her short earthly time.

Beth is survived by her husband, Michael of Myrtle Beach, S.C. (formerly of Avon Park), daughter Carly
of Anchorage,Alaska and son, Dale of Charleston, S.C. and many other family members.
She will be greatly missed by a host of family & friends.

Students


have fun


with Brain


Bowl


event
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
Tensions were high in the
Sebring High School Smith
Center Wednesday as local
HAART students vied for first
place in the Brain Bowl com-
petition.
Jeopardy-style buzzers
were frantically slammed
down on by fourth- and fifth-
grade fists, students thirsty to
showcase their knowledge in
a variety of fields.
Teams from each of the
eight area elementary schools
consisted of four members
participating in the competi-
tion, with two alternates.
"Different schools had dif-
ferent methods, some had an
in-school contest, some had
individual tests in the class-
room," gifted resource
teacher at Fred Wild and
Woodlawn Elementary
schools Heidi Stivender said,
explaining how students were
chosen for the competition.
"At Woodlawn and Fred Wild
the kids that were interested
had an in-class contest."
About 125 questions were
asked over three rounds, with
penalties assessed to teams
that buzzed in first then
answered incorrectly.
With help from Sebring
High School National Honor
Society members and sponsor
Janine Hart the event ran
smoothly.
"The A team competes this
way with the buzzers so they
kept score and set everything
up," Hart said. "They also
headed up the scoring and
made scoring sheets from
what they have seen at other
- competitions."


News-Sun photo by TREY CHRISTY
After three rounds of intense Jeopardy style competition, Lake Country Elementary fifth-
graders (from left) Hannah Waller, Trenton Baxter, Travis Baxter, and Pierce Stephens cele-
brate their Brain Bowl victory Wednesday over seven other Highlands County elementary
schools. The four students, supported by alternates Jenna Blount and Sadie Watts, were
ahead after the first round of competition and never looked back, finishing first at the end of
all three rounds.


NHS members Ashley
Richardson, Travis Baker and
Nick Perilla tracked scores,
and after each round the
results were the same.
The winners, well-rounded
and lacking in no one subject
area as a group, came from
Lake Country Elementary.
Trenton Baxter feels he is
strongest in history, while
teammate Pierce Stephens
feels the same way about his
math skills.
"The history questions and
world geography confuses
me," Pierce said. "The easy
questions were math and
Greek and Roman gods; me
and Travis are really good at
that stuff."
Travis Baxter, the third
member of the LCE Brain
Bowl team, felt he already
knew most of the questions.
His attention turned to the
pesky buzzer teammates had
to press before 28 other stu-
dents from the seven compet-
ing schools.
"I didn't like it when I did-
n't hit the buzzer fast enough
on some of the easy ques-
tions," Travis said. "The


buzzer was fun, I just like hit-
ting buzzers."
Travis feels strongest when
asked about physical features
and geography of the 50
United 'States.
Hannah Waller knew some
of the questions beforehand
but felt that studying after
school helped the LCE team
come away with a victory.
"I usually practiced an hour
after school with my mom,"
she said. "I had these cards
that had questions on them
and I would try to answer
them and study over them."
A modest Trenton Baxter
has a different view of why
his team prevailed.
"We hit the buzzer pretty
quick," he said.
LCE gifted resource
teacher Patricia Carter feels
differently.
"They are a very motivated
bunch, they did quite a bit on
their own," she said. "They
probably practiced together
about four or five times in the
afternoon for about an hour
and I worked with them four
or five times in the morn-
ings."


VA Vet Centers coming

to more communities


Special to the News-Sun
The Department of
Veterans Affairs Vet Center
program provides readjust-
ment counseling and outreach
services to combat veterans.
The program is expanding
into 23 new communities
across the nation over the
next two years.
These facilities are an
important resource for veter-
ans returning from the Global
War on Terror and for their
families. In Florida, new Vet
Centers will be located in
Orlando, Fort Myers, and
Gainesville. During 2007, the
VA plans to open the new
facility in Orlando. The other
centers are scheduled for
opening in 2008.
All Vet Centers are commu-
nity-based. ,They provide


counseling on mental health
and employment, plus servic-
es on family issues, educa-
tion, bereavement, and out-
reach, to combat veterans the
families of combat veterans.
These centers are staffed by
small teams of counselors,
outreach specialists, and other
specialists, many of whom are
combat veterans themselves.
The Vet Center' program
was established by Congress
in 1979 in recognition that a
significant number of
Vietnam veterans were still
experiencing readjustment
problems. Today, all veterans
who served in combat are eli-
gible for care at a VA Vet
Center at no cost, as are their
families for military-related
issues. Currently, VA main-
tains 209 Vet Centers.

DCA chief said county s comp-plan not compliant


By KEVIN J. SHUTT

TALLAHASSEE
Looking out the windows of
the capitol's 22nd floor,
Highlands County visitors to
Tallahassee received an
overview of the city below.
Inside, members of
Leadership Highlands
received a similar overview of
pending legislation and other
issues from a variety of elect-
ed officials.
Dist. 91 Rep. Ellyn
Bogdanoff, House majority
whip, discussed the "bold,


creative and innovative idea"
of rolling back ad valorem
taxes in conjunction with an
up to 2.5 percent sales tax
increase. Dist. 81 Rep. Gayle
Harrell discussed the tobacco
cessation bill that passed in
November and voiced her
support for tax rollbacks and
spending caps.
Highlands' legislative dele-
gation Sen. J.D. Alexander
and Reps. Baxter Troutman
and Denise Grimsley -
brought their priorities to the
table.
Kimberly Case from


Attorney General Bill
McCollum's office discussed
legislation that would stiffen
penalties for child predators
who use the Internet to find
and contact their prey. Florida
Chief Financial Officer Alex
Sink said bean counters are a
necessary component of fiscal
responsibility.
Pointing to California and
Massachusetts, she alluded to
mandatory health insurance to
fix numbers suggesting that
one in five Floridians are
uninsured.
Charles Bronson bragged


that his Agriculture
Department is sec-
ond in size only to
the U.S
Department of
Agriculture. Citing
an $87 billion
impact statewide
from agriculture,
he offered his solu-
tion for dealing
with illegal immi-
grants.
Mike McDaniel,


'Highlands
County is
beginning to
get on solid
ground.'
MIKE
McDANIEL
Department of
Community Affairs


comprehensive planning chief
for the Department of
Community Affairs discussed
growth management changes
and Highlands County's plan-


ning challenges.
McDaniel said
the county's great-
est challenge is the
result of a compre-
hensive plan
amendments that
haven't been in'
compliance since
2004.
He referenced
zoning and land-
use changes that
converted agricul-


ture to residential, saying they
weren't all warranted and
county staff often failed to
provide proper supporting
documents.


"If you spend all of your
time focussing on that, you
have less energy and time for
other stuff," McDaniel said.
After meeting with County
Administrator Carl Cool,
development services director
Jim Polatty and commissioner
Barbara Stewart, McDaniel
was encouraged by the
progress county's staff made.
"Highlands County is
beginning to get on solid
ground," he said.

Bogdanoff's comments, visit

"We are open to review any

said. "The bottom line is race

Further complications

BRANHAM
Continued from 1A
order quashed on the grounds
that Branham was talking to
Kelly as a friend and not as a
lawyer. The appeals court
agreed with the state and
issued its reversal of Roberts
on Friday.
In the decision, Judge
Charles T. Canady wrote that
Branham wasn't asking Kelly
for legal advice in the conver-
sation. Therefore, Branham's
statements to Kelly about
killing his wife were not sub-
ject to attorney-client privi-
lege because Kelly wasn't
giving Branham legal servic-,
es, as defined by the Florida
Statutes.
Branham's assertions that
the conversation fell under
attorney-client privilege has
"no legal basis," Canady
wrote.
"The lawyer-client privi-
lege is not established by
incantation," he wrote. "Nor
does the privilege come into
existence simply because a
party believes that it exists."
In the ruling, Canady

arrested? She doesn't know,"
Wilson said. "What do these
charges mean? She doesn't
know."
Watson was charged with
felony battery on a school
employee and two misde-
meanors resisting a law
enforcement officer without
violence and disrupting a
school function.
"People are losing sight of
this. The first question is,
'Doesn't she know the differ-
ence between right and
wrong?'" Mercurio said.
"When is it all right for any
student to strike a school offi-
cial?"
Burnham said specific
school officials are trained to
deal with these behavioral
issues. As an ESE teacher,


acknowledged that Kelly had
served as attorney for
Branham on past legal cases.
Kelly was also representing
attorney for a negligence case
that was pending at the time
of the murder.
However, the conversation
in which Branham made the
threats "was totally unrelated
to any lawyer-client relation-
ship between Kelly and the
defendant," Canady wrote
Branham "simply failed to
meet his burden" of proving
that Kelly was functioning as
a legal advisor for him.
The ruling as it stands
means Kelly's testimony
about the conversation will be
allowable as evidence in the
upcoming first-degree murder

land, an issue that has drawn
the ire of all-terrain vehicle
riders in the Carter Creek area
known as "The Scrubs."
"I thought it was very
worthwhile," Stewart said of
her three days at the capitol,
but she wouldn't comment or
speculate why her peers did-
n't go. "Everybody has to
evaluate what they think is
important to them."


Elder has this training.
So does Neale, a 20-year
police veteran involved with
school instruction for 10
years, Mercurio said.
Nonetheless, Wilson is
upset.
She wants cameras in every
school.
Looking for anything on
tape that might shed light on
what transpired, Roberts said
he will seek official records
from the school and police.
"If I was a teacher I would
have put her in front of video,
where her activity can be

trial of Branham.
Michael Branham reported
the shooting of his wife on
July 29, 2005. She was shot
13 times. Branham admitted
shooting her but said he did it
in self-defense because she
had a pair of scissors.
Branham pled not guilty to
the charge of first-degree
murder and is awaiting trial in
Wauchula. A date has not
been set. Branham has two
weeks to appeal the ruling and
ask for a rehearing of the
decision.
The entire text of the
Appeals Court ruling can be
found on the Second District
Court of Appeals Web site,

"Opinions."

Dental assistant


A long and colorful history


Eight hands a plus


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley @newssun.comr
AVON PARK Dentistry
is older than most people sus-
pect.
According to the American
Dental Association, ancient
Chinese, Egyptians, Greeks
and Romans all left writings
and evidence behind indicat-
ing consistent attempts to
fight and treat tooth decay.
Over the many centuries
that followed, constant
improvements took place.
Here in the United States,
formal dentistry arrived
roughly at the same time as
democracy.
Paul Revere, who was a sil-
versmith when he wasn't a
revolutionary, sometimes
made dentures. According to
the ADA, Revere conducted
the first known instance of
forensic dentistry when he
identified the remains of a
friend who was killed in the
Battle of Breed's Hill from
the bridge Revere had made
for him.
And while it is true that
George Washington wore den-
tures, according to a report by
the South African Dental
Association, they were not
made of wood. Washington
wore dentures made from
metal and ivory in one set,
and metal and carved cow
teeth in another.
In time, education moved
from apprenticeships to for-
mal training.
The ADA reports that
Harvard UnilersitN opened

'News-Sun' staff writer Christopher Tuffley works at loading the instrument John Palsgrove will use to
put the filling in Julian Nelson's tooth. Thanks to local anesthetics, dentistry is virtually painless today.
Cocaine was the first drug dentists used to dull the pain, but its addictive properties made it unfit. Then
came Novocain, Palsgrove said, but that had an unacceptable number of allergic reactions. Today
Septocain is the popular replacement.


the first university-affiliated
dental school in the United
States in 1867. By 1900, 57
dental schools had been
founded.
In 1910 the first school for
dental nurses was created at
the Ohio College of Dental
Surgery." It was disbanded
four years later, however,
because of the resistance of
Ohio dentists.
It isn't until 1917, again
according to the ADA, that
Irene Newman received the


world's first dental hygiene
license in Connecticut.
In 1924 the first association
for dental assistants was
formed by Juliette Southard.
Women had been serving as
dental assistants since the
1800s, doing exactly the same
kind of tasks they do now, if
not at the same level of tech-
nology. Now their education
too, became more formalized
and inclusive.
That tradition carries on to
this day.


South Florida Community
College, for example, has a
state-of-the-art teaching facil-
ity. It offers an associate of
science degree for dental
hygienists and an occupation
certificate for dental assis-
tants. Last May it graduated
its first class of hygienists,
and in August will graduate
its fourth class of dental assis-
tants.
Including a year of prereq-
uisites, including -English and

What a perfect assignment
for April Fool's Day -
working as a dental assistant.
I mean you'd have to be a
fool to choose this line of
work, right? People are
afraid of you and there's all
that saliva.
But, as with most things in
life, the reality of dental
assisting is a lot more com-
plicated.
By the time it was over I
discovered the field has a lot
to recommend it.
But before I get into that, a
little background in the inter-
est of full disclosure.
John Palsgrove is/was my
dentist. That is how I discov-
ered he was retiring after 44
years of practice.
And it was while I was
interviewing him for an arti-
cle about his retirement that
it occurred.to me what a
great Tuffin' It assignment
working as a dental hygienist
or dental assistant would be.
I mentioned it to Palsgrove
and he was immediately
receptive. We made our
arrangements for the follow-
ing week.
This was on a Wednesday.
Well, no sooner had I got-
ten home than my mouth
started to hurt. That night I
gargled with hydrogen perox-
ide and tried willing the pain
away.
By Thursday, hurting
more every hour, I was call-
ing Palsgrove for an appoint-
ment.
He saw me right away and,
an examination revealed I

had developed not one, but
two abscessed teeth. Worse,
each needed a root canal and
a crown.
He referred me to an
endodontist, a doctor who
specializes in the tooth's
pulp, roots and gum.
So instead of working with
Palsgrove the next Monday, I
was tilted back in a chair, a
patient myself, with half of
my face totally numb and
facing a repeat for this com-
ing week.
Some might call that jus-
tice, or exquisite timing.
Whatever it was, this
adventure had taken on a
whole new dimension.
Having avoided dentists
for over a decade, I was
caught by surprise at how
much things have changed.
I know it sounds like a-

Financial statement basics for the business owner


I don't have an account-
ing background and I leave
the financial statements and
tax returns to my account-
ant. I'd rather be selling
because that is where I
make my money, and I don't
pay much attention to the
bean counting if there are
enough beans. My account-
ant thinks I ought to take a
course in financial state-
ments. I think he's nuts.
What do you think?

Let's just say that I'm not
qualified to assess your
accountant's mental health,
but that you may need to work
on achieving more balance as
a business owner. A regular
review of your financial
results really is essential, and
the more you understand the
better off you would be.
I would also say to you, "If
you aren't paying attention to
your books, then who is pay-
ing attention to them? Who is
testing to see that you are get-
ting the results you expect?"



HISTORY
Continued from 11A
math, the hygiene course
takes three years. The assis-
tant's course takes 11 months.
But the assistants must pass
two national exams before
being certified.
The program's director,
Rebecca Sroda, said the
school is selective as there
are limited places available
for either specialty. At the
moment, the school is still
accepting applications.
Sroda said that high school
seniors, still unsure of what
they want to do with their
lives, cbuld do worse than
enrolling in the program. "It's
a great paying job for an 11-
month investment," she said.
Julie Lanfier has been a
dental assistant in Highlands
Count' off and on since grad;-
uating from Florida Southern,
in Orlando in 1972. She said
she has loved every minute of
it.
The job can seem over-
whelming in the beginning
she warned-. "There is a lot to
learn," she said, "but it starts
coming to you. Then it makes
sense."
For more 'information
about the SFCC program call
Jennifer Buchanan, allied
health, limited enrollment
program advisor, at 784-
7290.
U a'


Also, (sadly) internal theft
and embezzlement are all too
common in small companies
where the owner lets other
people worry about the num-
bers. Today's column doesn't
deal with how to prevent this,
but it does begin to point in
the right direction. Often-
times, these discrepancies are
found when somebody starts
asking questions about what
the financial statements are
saying.
If you can follow a recipe
or apply for a loan, you can
learn enough about basic
accounting to look at a finan-
cial statement and make sense
of it. This is not rocket sci-
ence. Financial statements
answer the command, "Show
me the money!"
There are four main finan-
cial statements.
Balance sheet This
shows what a company owns
and what it owes on one date.
The difference between what
is owned and what is owed is


HANDS
Continued from 11A
dream, but the root canal I
had was truly pain free..
I kept that in mind the fol-
lowing day as I shadowed
Julie Lanfier, one of.
Palsgrove's long time assis-
tants, and actually got to help
fill a tooth. Take heart,
despite the terror, dentistry
isn't as bad as it looks.
Young Julian Nelson, age
nine and a student at Ben
Hill Griffin Elementary
School in Frost Proof, didn't
agree with me, of course. But
then he was spending part of
his spring break getting three
cavities fixed.
As with many of us, get-
ting the shot of anesthetic
was the worst part for Julian.
Lanfier, who spent time
keeping the young man calm
-befpre 'the procedure, posi-
tioned herself so she could
quickly grab his hands if
Julian started to flail them.
He was brave, however, and
while tense and on the edge,
he kept his body still and his
mouth almost wide open.
Lanfier's primary responsi-
bility is to keep one step
ahead of Palsgrove antici-
pating his needs and having
what ever tool he needs next
immediately at the ready.
It was important to be
authoritative and firm when
passing instruments, she said,
as she slapped shapers and


net worth, or owners' Bus
equity. These num-
bers are an actual his- Ad
torical record, so you Forre
might notice for exam-
ple that the building is now
worth more. This will not be
entered in the balance sheet,
because your financial state-
ments are generally based on
transactions, not fluctuating
market values. Or you may
notice that a bad receivable or
obsolete inventory has not yet
been written off.
You make a note to yourself
that the real value of the busi-
ness is affected by true, asset
values. You do something
about those writeoffs you
should have taken. That is all
there is to it for now.
Income statement An
income statement is a report
that shows how much revenue
a company earned over a spe-
cific time period (usually for
a year or some portion of a
year), and how much profit
there is after costs. The top


compactors into Palsgrove's
palm.
Now in the movies, and
while I was watching her,
passing instruments during an
operation looked simple to
do.
Guess again. For one thing
you have to pick up the cor-
rect tool, and for another you
have to place it so the doctor.
can grasp it quickly and
smoothly, without looking, to
keep on with his work. It also
means not stabbing the den-
tist with anything sharp.
But most dental tools have
working parts on both ends,
and figuring out which end to
hand first was a particular
problem. Looked at closely
the dozens of different dental
instruments aren't as scary as
they are in horror movies.
The ends are actually tiny
trowels and hammers, not
just picks or long needles.
Then there was working
with the amalgam filling. It
comes in a plastic capsule
that separates two compo-
nents. You twist the capsule
and attach it to an electric
mixer. Then you have to
work quickly before it' sets.
The amalgam isn't made of
mercury, but looks a little
like it. There is an odd
shaped tool that the dentist
uses to apply the amalgam. It
has.a miniature cylinder
shaped scoop on each end
(different sizes). Each of the
scoops has a little lever the
dentist presses to force the

'est


iness line is revenue.
n Gross profit is the
isor income after cost of
t Steele goods, which is then
available to pay
operating expenses. The oper-
ating expenses are any other
costs and expenses associated
with earning that revenue.
After all operating expenses
are deducted from gross prof-
it, you arrive at operating
profit before interest and
income tax expenses.
The literal "bottom line" of
the statement usually shows
the company's net income or
loss after interest and taxes.
The important thing about
income statements is this:
They show how much you
earned but this may not match
cash flow. That's why you
need the next statement.
Cash flow Cash flow
statements report a company's
inflows and outflows of cash.
'This is important because the
ownership needs to think in
terms of having enough cash


amalgam into the prepared
tooth.
I felt awkward as I tried to
fill the scoop. You do that by
pressing it down on the amal-
gam, and dragging it across
the paper. Trouble was, I did-
n't understand how little
amalgam was needed, and
kept trying to overfill it. Plus
I was sweating because that
all that made me slow and I
was afraid I'd ruin the filling.
Worse was handing the
tools with sharp ends, and I
noticed, no matter how I
handed anything over,
Palsgrove had to look away
from Julian and re-adjust his
grip.
In between patients Lanfier
washed down everything that
had been touched. She car-
ried the used instruments
onto the sterilizing room and
started that multiple step
cleaning process. She also
did paperwork, and ordered
new supplies.
She prepared the instru-
ments for the next patient
and took x-rays when neces-
sary, so everything was in
place when Palsgrove walked
back into the room.
This is a physical job
because you are always on
your feet. It is tiring because
there is always something to
do, and no time to rest.
Lanfier is proud of the
work she does. "We make the
office run smoothly," she
said, "and unlike the hygien-
ists, who only clean teeth all


on hand to pay its expenses
and purchase assets. While an
income statement can tell you
whether a company made a
profit, a cash flow statement
can tell you whether the com-
pany generated cash.
What's the difference
between "income" and "cash
flow"? There are very many
things that will contribute to
the difference. Example: You
may not have been paid for
certain sales made at the end
of last year. They were report-
ed-as "sales" but that money
is in "accounts receivable."

It's about changes in net
worth. Most of what goes on
here for the small business is
very obvious and there's no
point of going into all the


complications that might
occur in a big business.
Granted, this is only
scratching the surface of the
broad topic of financial
reporting, but it points to most
,of what you as a small busi-
ness owner need to know. It
takes a little time to become
familiar with format and defi-
nitions but if you keep look-
ing at the figures with a
"show me the money" attitude
you will never be far off

If you start generating
questions, that could be a sign
you are ready for a higher

you may indeed benefit from
a course. Or maybe your

them from the ultra-sonic washer. Each cassette, made of
metal, holds the complete set of instruments the dentist will
need for a particular procedure. After the rinse they are
dried and then wrapped like a Christmas gift. Then they go

SEBRING Lowe's in
partnership with Women
Build recently offered work-
shops to women wanting to
learn to build for Habitat for
Humanity. Lowe's is expand-
ing much-needed training
opportunities for women by
offering workshops at Lowe's
stores, where women volun-
teers and women homeown-
ers are able to participate in
skill workshops, gaining
hands-on experience in basic
construction techniques.
They held four workshops
to teach the Women Build
how to hang vinyl siding, the
correct way to paint, and how
to trim out their work. The
workshop on safety tools at
the workshop was probably
one of the most important
things that were presented.
The Women Build program
enables 'women to discover
for themselves that they can
build Habitat homes.
Highlands County Habitat
for Humanity was privileged
to have Women Build work
on its 100th home. The
women came out in force;
more than 20 of them gave up
their weekend to help Carol
Clark get her home ready to
move in. The home is expect-
ed to be ready some time later
this month or in early May.
The Women Build training
program also offers online
courses at www.hfhu.org.

Other viewpoints

Four years since Cuba cracked down on dissent, the
more than 300 political prisoners in the country need
the world's attention. They remain behind bars for
speaking their minds, defending human rights or
demanding a voice in their governance. Yet there still
is no sign that the regime intends to free them even
though there was a power shift at the top eight months
ago. If anything, repression has worsened, and hope
for constructive change has faded.
Cuba's forgotten political prisoners are victims of a
dictatorship that unjustly accuses them of "crimes"
that do not exist in the free world. Their mistreatment
and unjust punishment must be condemned. The
international community should ramp up pressure on
the government to release them.
People living in a democracy may find it hard to
imagine being imprisoned for signing a petition,
advocating for free elections or loaning books from a
home library, but this is what Cuba does. Four years
ago this month, the regime began rounding up 75
activists. They were tried in kangaroo courts and sen-
tenced to as much as 28 years in prison. The sweep
was so egregious that Amnesty International declared.
all 75 activists prisoners of conscience.
Alfredo Pulido Lopez, a dentist turned independent
journalist, got a 14-year prison term. One strike
against him was that he was a leader of the Varela
Project, a legal petition asking for democratic, consti-
tutional changes. Locked up in a room with 100 hard-
ened criminals, he now fears for his life. He suffers
with gastritis and other serious ailments.
Other prisoners have endured abysmal treatment
even longer. For instance, Francisco' Chaviano's
offense was to document rafters who disappeared or
died trying to flee Cuba. Arrested in 1994, he was
sentenced to 15 years for "revealing state security
secrets."
Mr. Chaviano also suffers severe ailments, includ-
ing high blood pressure and respiratory problems. His
health has been worsened by pervasive humidity, lack
of sunlight and denial of medical care. Though eligi-
ble for parole years ago, he now is the "longest
imprisoned human-rights activist in the Americas,"
according to Cuba Archive.
The real crime here is Cuba's abuse of Messrs.
Pulido Lopez, Chaviano and hundreds of others
wrongly deprived of freedom. International attention
and pressure on the Cuban government helps political
prisoners, as those freed in the past have confirmed.
Cuba must get the message from all corners of the
'world: Release all political prisoners now.

'An editorial excerpt from The Miami Herald.

After an on-again, off-again approach throughout
much of his presidency, George W. Bush finally
seems to be giving the Mideast peace process the sus-
tained, high-level attention it deserves. Secretary of
State Condoleezza Rice has met with leaders in the
region four times in the past four months.
It makes sense for Rice to keep talking with
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas even after his
Fatah faction formed a coalition government this
month with Hamas, which refuses to recognize Israel
or renounce terrorism. Otherwise, the United States
would weaken Palestinian moderates and lose any
possible influence with the new government.
But it would be irresponsible and immoral for the
United States to resume direct aid to the new govern-
ment until both its partners accept Israel and reject
terrorism.
Seasoned observers of the Mideast peace process
know better than to count on breakthroughs. Even so,
some recent developments suggest the window of
opportunity could be opening a crack for easing the
enmity between Israel and its neighbors.
Saudi Arabia's foreign minister said Arab leaders,
who are holding a summit this week, would consider
compromising in their 2002 proposal for peace with
Israel. And Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said
his country would be willing to take part in a region-
al peace conference.
For U.S. credibility throughout the Mideast, it's
essential for the Bush administration to remain
engaged in the peace process. And history says break-
throughs are unlikely without U.S. involvement.

An editorial excerpt from the Orlando Sentinel.

Two cockatiels or 108 roommates


As some of my readers may
know, we are the owners of
two cockatiels. I would say
we are "reluctant" owners,
because if there were a
humane way to get rid of the
birds, we would.
I tried to recall if I've writ-
ten much about the birds. I
don't think I have, and part of
the reason is that I try to
ignore them as much as possi-
ble. It's not that I don't like
birds in general. But I have to
admit I don't like these birds
very much. : .
They came to our home by
way of a friend of James.
Said friend was moving, and
for some reason they weren't
taking the birds. James want-
ed them and, being the per-
suasive being he is, he man-
aged to talk me and Don into
it.
Look, I've had cockatiels
before. I kind of like them as
birds. In the past I even would
let my pet bird sit on my
shoulder. That's something.
Not these cockatiels. They
have a mean streak. And these


two are by far the Lau
messiest birds I've
ever owned. The wall LO
their cage is next to Laura
will never be the
same.
Not to mention James went
through a period of letting the
birds fly free from their cage.
They managed to wreak
havoc on a couple of laundry
hampers and a curtain. Now
they stay in their cage, send-
ing out ear-splitting chirps on
occasion.
Because we are not cruel,
we have.tried to find a new
home for them. Today we
have failed. So we keep tak-
ing care of them, putting up
with their faults and trying to
keep their chances to stain or
damage things of the house to
a minimum.
But, it could be worse. We
have two birds in a large
house. Unlike a Seattle man
who kept some birds in his
one bedroom apartment.
"Some," in this case, equals
110 parakeets. In his living
room. In one cage.


SI am trying to fig-
Ira's ure out how this guy
)ok crammed 110 birds
SWare into one cage. Even if
the parakeets were
small, the cage must have
been massive. And I wouldn't
be surprised if the birds were
practically climbing all over
each other.
I am also wondering if his
senses, of hearing and smell
are somehow impaired. They
would almost have to be,
given what the conditions of
his place must have, been- .
For one thing, the noise of
110 birds in close quarters
must be quite piercing. One
animal control officer said he
could hear the birds from the
street. No wonder the neigh-
bors complained.
Then there is the smell.
Birds are not potty-trained.
That means these parakeets
were probably relieving them-
selves on the floor of the cage
and each other. The condi-
tions were described as
"unsanitary." To me, that has
all the earmarks of an under-


statement.
The owner of the birds
apparently did try to give
them to a shelter, but decided
against it when he was told all
but five would be euthanized.
He'd been collecting them for
about five years.
Well, he's cooperating with
authorities, and the birds are
up for adoption. Those want-
ing to adopt the birds must fill
out an application and bring
an appropriately sized cage.
The- owner,, because -he is
cooperating, ?' will n6t be
charged with anything.
So maybe two cockatiels
aren't so bad. Maybe I should
try to become friends with the
birds. Maybe even let one or
the other of them sit on my
shoulder.
At the very least I'll make
sure they don't get 108 room-
mates.

Loss of control

is being felt
Editor:
Have Americans lost com-
plete control of their destiny?
The loss of control of all
branches of government, a
government that has gone
insane with power over the
people, a complete lack of
willingness to serve the peo-
ple, a lack of willingness to
protect our sovereignty of
these United States and'the
sovereignty of other nations.
The world's largest indus-
tries are for the making of
weapons of war. What nations
are involved in this? All
nations. All nations elate,
promote these wars.
The world's Military
Industrial Complex: Control-
led by the world's elite.
Dwight David Eisenhower:
Eisenhower, the World War II
military hero who spent his
presidency fighting for peace,
.is perhaps best remembered
for this warning in his
farewell address on Jan. 17,
1961.
In the councils of govern-


ment, we must guard against
the acquisition of unwarrant-
ed influence, whether sought
or unsought, by the military-
industrial complex. The
potential for the disastrous
rise of misplaced power
exists and will persist ... We
should take nothing for grant-
ed. Only an alert and knowl-
edgeable citizenry can com-
pel the proper meshing of the
huge industrial and military
machinery of defense with
our peaceful methods and
goals, so that security and lib-
erty may prosper together.
Gerald Rudolph Ford: In an
attempt to restore the confi-
dence of Americans follow-
ing the crushing blows of
Watergate, Ford spoke these
words after taking the oath of
office on Aug. 9, 1974, "...our
long national nightmare is
over.
"Our Constitution works;
our great republic is a gov-
ernment of laws and not of
men. Here the people rule ...
As we bind up the internal
wounds of -Watergate, more
painful and more poisonous
than those of foreign wars; let
us restore the Golden Rule to


our political process and let
brotherly love purge our
hearts of suspicion and hate."
Is Congress letting the
Military Industrial Complex
control America's foreign
policy? Who in our elite soci-
ety is calling the shots in our
foreign policy? Are we ignor-
ing international laws? Is
Congress shirking its duties
and allowing a "one man
rule?" Germany allowed this
in World War II and it almost
destroyed the world.
The next war of the worlds
will drive mankind into
extinction as we know him.
The genetic change brought
on by exposure to radiation
worldwide will be a
Pandora's box..
Having children will be
like a box of chocolates, you
never know what you will
get.
Those who promote war
for power and wealth are
dragging the entire world into
a situation of complete col-
lapse of our civilization.
Who will checkmate the
world's elite who, with their
secret meetings around the
world, are deciding the civi-


lized world's fate? We must
learn from the past. We must
heed the wise words of both
past presidents, Dwight
David Eisenhower and
Gerald Rudolph Ford, to do
less is criminal.
And as for our Union of
States and our sovereignty -
James Abram Garfield: In a
speech in New York City, on
Aug. 6, 1880, Garfield spoke
on behalf of blacks who
fought for the Union in the
Civil War.
"We have seen white men
betray the flag and fight to
kill the Union, but in all that
long, dreary war we never
saw a traitor in black skin ...
and now that we have made
them free, so long as we live,
we will stand by these black
citizens. We will stand by
them until the sun of liberty,
fixed in the firmament of our
Constitution shall shine with
equal rays upon every man,
black or white, throughout
the Union."
Now it seems as though our
Union of States and our sov-
ereignty will be destroyed by
those world elites who are

my prior concerns and issues.
While there is no doubt that the
merit for a shrine to Edna
Lockett is applaudable, it
remains unclear why the proj-
ect could not go forward with-
out ownership by Highlands
County.
The (South Florida) Water
(Management) District is under
court order to maintain the sta-
tus quo, so there is absolutely
no threat that some developer
could come along and build
there. Furthermore, the county
commission controls land use,
so no one can threaten the
estate with unwanted real estate
projects. I feel that the historic
preservationists are not forth-
coming with the truth here.
In addition, I believe that
Commissioner (Guy) Maxcy's
statement that the estate would
be valued at more than a mil-
lion dollars if the park project
would fail, could be seriously


flawed. Why? Because any
commercial valuation would be
severely lowered due to the
land use restrictions including
the flood plain issues, court
order that it is open to public
access, and having a private
cemetery on the property. The
commission should get a com-
mercial real estate broker to
weigh in on the valuation of the
estate if such a project would
fail and Highlands County
owns the land.
Here are my additional con-
cerns.
Regarding the Highlands
County commission meeting of
Feb. 27 on the proposed acqui-
sition of the Pearce Lockett
Estate by Highlands County, I
offer the following:
Many of the issues raised by
concerned citizens have been
resolved. However, there are
too many unanswered ques-
tions about the land use to sup-
port such an acquisition by
Highlands County.
1. The water district has not
been forthcoming about the
court order restricting use of
the land. At previous meetings
on the subject, the public was
led to believe that the Lockett
Estate property could be auc-
tioned for other uses threat-
ened by commercial develop-
ment. In reality, a court has
determined that the recipient of
the property, whether buyer or
gift recipient, must adhere to
clear restrictions on future use,
including mandated access by
the public. Restricting the
hours of public access, as sug-
gested by some, may be subject
to future litigation by anyone
who wants access when the so-
called park is closed.
2. The court order is report-
ed to state that the homestead
must be open to the public, and
that the descendants of the
Lockett family have unlimited
rights to visit the private ceme-
tery on the property. Because of


the court order, and the exis-
tence of a private cemetery on
the land, the commercial value
of the property is greatly
reduced.
3. After scrutiny by
Highlands County commis-
sioners, and the county attorney
at (a recent) meeting, it became
clear that although the water
district wants to dump the
property, there is no way the
land is threatened by public
auction. Anyone or any corpo-
ration acquiring the property
must adhere to the conditions
of the court order restricting
use, and restricting how a
resale could occur.
4. If the homestead park
project fails, for whatever rea-
sons, it is likely that the taxpay-
ers of Highlands County would
be stuck with a piece of proper-
ty that would be difficult to
sell, and the property would not
be valued at a premium, due to
the use restrictions.
5. The homestead park
would serve few residents. It
would be an eco tour destina-
tion for visitors from through-
out the state and United States.
This is clearly a project that
would be better owned by pri-
vate parties, not the taxpayers
of Highlands County.
6. The proponents of the
property acquisition would bet-
ter serve the residents of
Highlands County if they were
forthcoming. It appears that
many facts are being. withheld
in anticipation of the county
simply accepting the deal.
I applaud the Highlands
County commission for
requesting additional informa-
tion regarding future land use
before buying into this special
interest project. Thank you for
taking the time to read my con-
cerns, and thank you for
addressing my issues.

Arrangement is

interesting
Editor:
I suspect that the earliest
use of a piece of colored
bunting fluttering in the
breeze was as some kind of a
recognition signal or state-
ment of identity. This is us,
distinctly us.
With its continued use, cer-
tain emotions attached to the
symbol, feelings of pride, of
identification, of belonging.
Over time combinations of
colors or patterns evolved,
widening the use of flags as
symbols of nations, cities,
companies or just groupings
proud to assert their collec-
tive identity, their independ-
ence.
Songs have been written
about the flag, to articulate
strong feelings of affection
for the flag or the entity with
which it is associated. In
review observers often
become misty eyed, render-
ing honors to the passage of
their banner.
It is therefore, understand-
able that certain rituals con-
cerning precedence and dis-
play of flags have developed
over centuries, so as to assure
adherence that due deference
is being rendered to their
symbol and therefore to their
group or entity.
One of these rituals that I
found fascinating was the
arrangement of the flags of
all nations at the diplomatic
entrance of the Department of
State in Washington, D.C.
The entrance is largely
glassed and in the lobby
behind the glass facade all of
the flags of the nations are
displayed, describing a color-
ful arc of silks as you enter


the building. Each is attached
to a pole of uniform size and
are themselves of equal
dimensions. Many are essen-
tially monochromatic, or
composed of a few contrast-
ing stripes, others are highly
decorated, festooned with
pictures, or squiggles or other
symbols of significance. A
few are a virtual explosion of
color and design, as if to
shout for attention. One
defies the rectangular con-
formity, and rebelliously
present a collection of trian-
gles.
The arrangement, alphabet-
ic from left to right is to sym-
bolize the equal dignity sup-
posedly rendered to all sover-
eign entities in the world of
diplomacy.
How delightful it was dur-
ing the '60s when some
emerging nations saw fit to
change their names that a
flurry of activity ensued at
the diplomatic entrance,
hastily rearranging the posi-
tions of virtually all of the
flags so as to re-establish the
alphabetical pecking order,
lest someone's sovereign dig-
nity be offended by being
misplaced in the array.
I thought this was a perfect
metaphor for the imperma-
nence of one's place in the
world.

Another unsung

hero in county
Editor:
We read newspapers about
Good Samaritans in
Highlands County and else-
where, but it is usually about


people we don't know. Well,
a Good Samaritan came to my
aid Feb. 7. My brand new tire
picked up a piece of metal
and went flat in a parking lot
of small businesses.
A man waiting outside a
doctor's office alerted me
about the flat. I was about to
go back to the business to call
AAA, when another man
leaving the parking lot said
not to bother, that he would
put the spare on. Talk about
miracles.
Leo Padro changed the tire
in about 10 minutes and as
usual with Good Samaritans,
refused my offer of compen-
sation, he understood my
plight. It would have taken
AAA an hour or so to arrive.
Ironically, I went straight to
Toyota Motors where I
bought the four tires, where it
took two hours to repair the
tire and replace it on my vehi-
cle.
So here we have another
unsung hero in Highlands
County. It took an incident
like this to remind me and
many others to realize how
blessed we are to live in
Highlands County.
Incidentally, Mr. Padro oper-
ates an auto service company;
he has a new customer.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop

Arms around

the world


I thought she'd never
let me go. Her arms of
welcome pressed around
me and, in return, I held
onto her, too.
My cousin and I hadn't
seen each other in some
time and this day not
only reunited us, but we
got to be with her children
and grandchildren as well.
We met on the last day of
their family, vacation at
Disney World joining
the grand parade of people
that flocked to the park.
We wish we could have
put our arms around
everyone at once. But the
circle of 12 was a bit too
big for that. So, we
embraced each adult and
child individually -
meeting most of the little
ones for the first time.
At the end of a hectic
day of keeping up with
each other, we closed our
time together as we had
begun it embracing.
The crowds at the
theme park gave me a bet-
ter perspective of the
throngs that filled the road
as Jesus entered the city
riding a donkey. The\
flocked to see him; laying
their clothes and palm
branches on the road in
welcome.
Many knew Jesus per-
sonally and probably
received his warm
embrace. Others may have
only known him from afar.
Yet all who met him were
welcomed as if he could
embrace the whole world.
Little did they know
that as they cried,
"Hosanna! Blessed is he
who comes in the name of
the Lord! The King of
Israel!" as seen in John
12: 12b, NKJV, that Jesus'
embrace would, indeed,
reach-around the world.
For now, however, they
celebrated; and, Jesus let
them, fulfilling the
prophecy in Zechariah 9:
9 about their King coming
to them riding on a don-
key.
However, when the time
had come for Jesus' mis-
sion to be completed, he
willingly paid the price of
our sins, once and for all.
He extended his arms on a
cross so that he could
embrace us all at once. He
died, was buried and rose
again on the third day -
conquering death so that
we could have eternal life.
But, we must put our
faith in him and accept his
invitation to come so that
we can receive his free
gift making the grand
hug personal.
Had our arms been long
enough to embrace my
cousin and her family all
at once, it would have
been quite a feat. But,
each individual hug con-
veyed that personal love
and affection that couldn't
be felt in a group embrace.
Jesus stretched out his
arms, reaching around the
world so he could embrace
each one of us personally.
This is his invitation for
us to come. Selah

'Dolly' performs one last time


News-Sun staff report
LAKE PLACID
after 19 years, 159
shows in 11 states and
Canada, as well as a
14-day concert overseas,
Ruth LaGrow is ready to put
on her Dolly Parton face one
last time. This time as a
fund-raiser for the Children's
Advocacy Center and the
Highlands County Family
Safehouse.
After that, she will retire
from her "Impressions of
Dolly" show business to trav-
el with her already-retired
husband, Lionel.
- "This is-i. After this con-
cert, I'm retiring. I thought
what better way to go out
than with a concert that will
help these children and
women," she said.'
The third annual fund-rais-
er will be Saturday, April 14,
at the American Legion Post
25 in Lake Placid. Cocktails
will be at 5 p.m. with the
grilled prime rib dinner being
served at 6 p.m. and the show
following. The non-refund-

able tickets are $35 each and
are on a first-come, first-seat-

The event is co-sponsored
by the Veterans of Foreign
Wars Post 4300 in Sebring,
VFW Post 3880 and
American Legion Post 25,
both in Lake Placid.

Avoiding

Teaching our children to
befriend their conscience is a
good thing. The voice of the
conscience helps a child dis-
tinguish between right and
wrong.
If we parents fail to teach
them how to listen to this
inner reasoning factor that
God has given to them, they
may play themselves for the
fool. How so? By choosing
the voice that excuses them
rather than the voice that con-
victs them when they're
wrong.
As a young girl, I was very
conscientious about my
school work. One morning as
I headed out for school, I
began going over in my mind
what homework I'd done and
what was expected of me.
Suddenly, I stopped short. I
had a test that day for which I
hadn't studied. My heart
pounded as I tried to decide
what to do.


Born in Arcadia, LaGrow
has lived most of her life in
Lake Placid, having lived
here since 1963. She has a
passion for doing charitable
fund raising for her commu-
nity and is quite active with
the Lake Placid Chamber of
Commerce.
She.will be joined by a
number of other entertainers
who are volunteering for the
April 14 performance.
Like LaGrow, Rebekah
Loweke is no stranger to
Highlands County. A finalist
in Heartland Idol, Loweke is
best kno\' n for her sRranoq
vocal range and abilities in
styling and lyric writing.
When not singing, she is an
elementary school teacher.
"I'm not so much about
style as about message. The
songs I choose to sing must
meet definite criteria. The
message comes first and the
songs I sing must appeal to
those who love our country
and family values. I'm about
families and freedom," she
said.
Roger Keys is a former
Rome/Varsity recording artist
and has toured with Midwest
Productions. He has per-
formed at many concerts

LOWEKE


including the Southern Jam
with such artists as Willie
Nelson, Hank Williams Jr.
and many other stars.
Recently he had one of the
songs he wrote used in the
movie "A Guy Thing."
The legendary Ray Charles
will take the stage through
Virgil Terrybey, a resident of
Lake Placid for the past five
years.
Terrybey retired from the


state of Florida where he was
an engineer. Now, he loves to
travel and just relax, taking
great pleasure from time to
time to woo audiences with
his rendition of "Here We Go
Again" by the late and great
Ray Charles.
David Austin, another Lake
Placid resident, takes on the
role of Hank Williams Jr. A

foolishness by befriending conscience


Just like the depiction of a
little devil sitting on one
shoulder and whispering in
the ear; and, a tiny angel sit-
ting on the other shoulder
whispering in the other ear, I
felt caught in the middle.
The "angel voice" coun-
seled that I'd probably pass
based on having been atten-
tive in class. But, the other
voice suggested I might fail.
Why not say I felt sick on the
way to school and go home.
This way I could study and
take the retest?
I let fear rule and made an
about face for home. When I
walked through the kitchen
door, my mom immediately
wanted to know what was
wrong.
"I don't feel well. Can I
stay home today?"
She felt my head for fever;
but, not having any reason to
doubt me, said OK.
However, as the day wore


on, she checked on me sever-
al times. Guilt was making
me feel sick. Once again, that
"angel voice" was hard at
work convincing me to come
clean.
At last, I confessed and
my "sickness" disappeared.
Mom forgave me for my lie,
but helped me see that by
missing a whole day of
school, I'd have all of that
work to make up. I suppose


she felt that was punishment
enough as she repeated an oft
used verse from Scripture
reminding me that my sins
would surely find me out. I
promised I'd never lie to her
again.
When we help our children
know the difference between
right and wrong and guide
them to a relationship with
God through his word, they
will have a heightened sensi-


tivity to their conscience and
how to distinguish between.
issues of right and wrong.
"For the word of God is liv-
ing and active," says Hebrews?
4:12, NIV, "sharper than any
double-edged sword it
judges the thoughts and atti-
tudes of the heart."
The Scriptures work well
with the conscience because
that is how it was designed to
work. Like a farmer, as we
plow up the rich soil of our
children's hearts and plant
them with the truth of God's
ways, then the conscience
will work to convict them and
keep them on a stable path -
a path of hope, forgiveness,
salvation and the power to
live abundant lives.

Parenting by Heart is a month-
ly column written by Jan
Merop, of Sebring, to be fea-

Sherry Fourez's quilt 'Storm at Sea' makes her a semifinalist
in the Paducah, Ky., quilt show later this month.


Local quilter a semifinalist

in Kentucky quilt show


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING For the sec-
ond year in a row Sherry
Fourez, of Sebring, is a semi-
finalist in the 23rd annual
Quilt Show and Contest to be
held April 25-28 in Paducah,
Ky.
Her quilt, called "Storm at
Sea," is 18-by-18 inches
square, with 1,185 pieces. It's
foundation is pieced and
machine quilted.
Regardless of how the quilt
places in the final judging, all
400 quilts entered will be dis-
played at the four-day show.
Fourez has been quilting
and teaching for 18 years and
spends her winters in
Tanglewood Resort and her
summers in Illinois. She is a
member of the Highlands
County Quilt Guild, the
Tanglethreads, Vermilion
County Quilt Guild in Illinois
and the American Quilters
Society.
Last year's quilt, Sparkling
Pineapple Miniature, went on
,. to be; donated to the AQS


Quilt Museum in Paducah and
will also be included into the
"OH WOW Miniatures" book
due out this spring.


Daily, I listen to those
around me and those in the
media which include news
anchors, reporters, celebrity
and members of society who
should have a large adjective
vocabulary on hvw they
massacre words, misuse or
overuse certain words in the
English language.
Take for example the word
pretty and the context in
which it's being used. While
writing this article, one com-
mercial stated "pretty stan-
dard stuff."
Pretty awesome.
Pretty ugly
Pretty awkward
Pretty vulnerable
Pretty scary
Pretty angry
Pretty muy loco
Pretty ingenious
Pretty bizarre
Pretty stupid
Pretty lucky
Pretty smart
Pretty happy
Pretty dumb
Pretty brutal
Pretty confrontational
Pretty handsome
Pretty hungry
Pretty comfortable

Pretty nice
Pretty bored
Pretty ignorant.
I am completely exhausted
just thinking of how often
"pretty" is misused. Now that
I'm at the end of my article I
must end by saying, I'm pret-
tv blessed.

Go outside and celebrate the season


Spring has sprung and
everywhere you look there are
fresh new leaves unfurling,
butterflies fluttering, and
birds nesting. The weather's
so beautiful it just makes you
want to be outside and cele-
brate the season. A perfect
day to do this would be on
Earth Day here at Highlands
Hammock State Park.
This year's annual celebra-
tion begins at 7:30 a.m.
Saturday, April 21. Plan to
arrive at 7 a.m. if you'd like
to participate in the Earth Day
5 K Trail Run. Your $10 regis-
tration donation will help sup-
port park improvement proj-
ects. Plan on a mixture of dirt
and asphalt running surfaces
and bring a T-shirt for the
swap table if you'd like to
"recycle" yours for something


different.
Following the run will be
an exotic removal steward-
ship activity. Beginning at 9
a.m., you'll join others who
want to help the park by get-
ting down and dirty!
Everyone is welcome to par-
ticipate in this resource man-
agement activity, but be sure
to wear closed-toe shoes, a
hat, and work gloves. Bring a
shovel, drinking water, sun-
block and perhaps a picnic
lunch.
If you'd like to help, but
don't feel you have the
strength to dig up exotic
plants, bring a bucket and
come collect air potatoes.
At 2 p.m., a special choral
and music performance will
begin in the picnic area. This
45-minute program is present-

SSS Art Quilts, sunflowers and sunny weather attract hundreds to Gallery Walk


By PATRICIA C. POND
News Sun correspondent
SEBRING Hundreds of
visitors thronged the galleries
during Thursday's Van Gogh-
llery Walk, which celebrated
the art of famous post impres-
sionist painter Vincent Van
Gogh. Each of the venues fea-
tured paintings inspired by
Vincent sunflowers, spiral
clouds, and self-portraits of
the artist.
The most unusual was an
art quilt portrait of Van Gogh
created by Linn Shimek on
fabric especially for the event.
Shimek and her quilting
partners Mary Seigfried and
Sandy Spice opened their
artists-of-the-month exhibit at
the Highlands Art League's
gallery in Sebring with a gala
reception during Gallery
Walk.
Known as SSS Art Quilts,
the trio produced a dazzling
display of colorful fabric art,
proving for the second time to
be one of the most popular
exhibits offered by the art
league.
Each artist's style differs
from the others but they share
a commitment to designing
one-of-a-kind textile cre-
ations that are true works of
art. The pieces are so intri-


cately sewn that they look like
paintings at first glance.
"An art quilt is as different
from a traditional quilt as a
piece of art glass is from a
drinking glass," artist Sandy
Spice explained. Spice works
with vivid color to achieve
impact in both her abstract
and nature-themed works.
Mary Seigfried has taken
her fabric collage to a new
level in this show, creating
whimsical and wistful por-
traits and other subjects in
three dimensional pieces.
Gallery owners and direc-
tors reported a notable num-
ber of out-of-town visitors at
this month's Gallery Walk.
LK Artworks Gallery fea-
tured several artists from
Punta Gorda this month,
which attracted some west
coast visitors. Linda Kegley
has also been receiving
inquiries from people in Fort
Myers, Boca Raton and other
cities on the east coast.
"I had people from out of
town calling me for directions
all week," Kegley said. "We
have been putting announce-
ments for Gallery Walk on
several Web sites."
A group of Elderhostel vis-
itors enrolled in an Art and


Archaeology program spon-
sored by South Florida
Community College also
attended. Elderhostel is an
international travel and learn-
ing organization for seniors.
Group members came from
New York, Ohio, Idaho,
California and Florida.
Bradenton residents Doris
and Abe Epstein were amazed
at the variety of activities
available in Highlands
County. While touring the
exhibits at the Highlands Art
League, they described their
week here as very rewarding.
"We have discovered many
things during our visit the
art, the archaeology, the beau-
tiful nature trips. Sebring is a
very well-kept secret, but now
that we know, we will come
back," Abe Epstein said.
Becky Rousch, director of
Community Education at
SFCC, brought the group to
Gallery Walk as part of her
planned program.
"I wanted to showcase his-
torical Sebring and Sebring's
art community," Rousch said.
"I could do this by taking
advantage of the variety of
things to see during Gallery
Walk."
The evening was climaxed


Art quilter Linn Shimek with Hugh Gillard of Sebring during the reception at the Highlands
Art League's gallery. Shimek used intricate stitching to create the fabric Van Gogh portrait
for the Gallery Walk theme. SSS Art Quilts are artists of the month at HAL and their exhibit
will run through April 21. Photos of VanGogh look-alikes on 8B.

contest held in Circle Park.
Contestant William Cannon
won both first place and the
people's choice awards.

A steady stream of
Downtown Sebring's Gallery
Walk participants attended
Highlands Art League's
Thursday night artists' recep-
tion at The Village. Featured
in the Yellow House
Gallery/Giftshop as Artists of
the Month, the SSS Art
Quilters Mary Seigfreid, Linn
Shimek and Sandy Spice dis-
played beautifully executed
Art Quilts.
Many of Seigfreid's humor-
ous pieces drew chuckles,
while her other work encour-
aged emotional responses
from the viewer. The intricate
threadwork of Shimek was
amazing to contemplate;
many were surprised to dis-
cover the designs weren't
paintings, but works done
entirely with fiber. Spices
bold colors and composition
drew attention and kept the
viewer enthralled.
The trio will be available to
answer questions about their
work each Wednesday from 1-
4 p.m. during their exhibit. It
will be a perfect opportunity
for those who wish to learn
more about the techniques
and methods use to create art
quilts.
The SSS Art Quilters
exhibit will be on display in
the Yellow House at The
Village, 1989 Lakeview Drive

CAUSES
Continued from 1B
actions, reduces costly and
repetitious interviews, aids in
more complete medical and
mental health referrals and
eliminates the duplication of
efforts among agencies work-
ing in this arena.
Children are better protect-
ed and their healing is more
complete.
At the Family Safehouse,
battered women and children
find temporary shelter from
their abuser. Established 12
years ago, abused women
from Highlands County once
had to travel to Lakeland.
Since its inception, more than
2,000 women and children
have been given a safe haven.
The operators of the shel-
ter, Peace River Center, are a
community mental health
agency. Due to a budget
shortfall and its primary
source of revenue coming
from the state, the Children's
Services Foundation has
pledged to raise community
awareness to this need and
contribute $60,000 annually
both from the public and pri-
vate sector. The foundation
leases the building to Peace
River Center at no annual
cost.
Ruth LaGrow, organizer of
the April 14 concert, said the
goal is to raise $10,000 to
help both agencies equally.

Marlins, Rays

heading to

Las Vegas?











AND ANOTHER THING...

Dan Hoehne

A bit of shocking news came
to me early today, of an upcom-
ing change that effects profes-
sional baseball in Florida.
Proprosed first is a contrac-
tion of the Tampa Bay Devil
Rays.
Relocation of the Florida
Marlins is the second part of
the proposal.
Interestingly, what would
actually come out of it is the
merging of the two organiza-
tions before the newly formed
team will be moved.
Las Vegas is the obvious
location, though it hasn't been
confirmed as yet, but with
many leagues eyeing the rapid-
ly growing Nevada city as a
prime spot to move to, Major
League Baseball is prmed to be
the first.
Florida has long seemed a
baseball haven, with the tepid,
year-round climate, but true
interest among residents seems
only to be rooted in Spring
Training, when part-time resi-
dents flock south.
Obviously the perennial
doormat Tampa nine has neter
had much success either on the
field or at the ticket office, with
questionable ownership and
what is said is quite' the sterile
ballpark-.-
One has to wonder, though,
what has held the Marlins back
from building a big following -
what with two World Series
wins in the teams brief history.
Latin American countries are
baseball hotbeds, both in bud-
ding talent and fan fervor, and
with Miami having a large per-
centage of Latin-Americans,
the thought would be that there
would be a strong fan base
among that part of the popula-
tion, at least.
Somehow, that hasn't trans-
lated and with questionable
ownership decisions (World
Series team fire sales) and a
bad stadium deal, the Marlins
existence in south Florida has
been in question for some time.
Discussions are ongoing,
finalizing the stadium situation
in Las Vegas and how the
minor league affiliations of
both clubs will be merged.
Also up for debate is in
which league and division the
new team will be placed.
You might want to put your
bet on the American League
West, giving it a long sought
after fifth team.
Just so you know, only at
this time of year could a discus-
sion such as this take place.
Only as spring training
breaks and the regular season is
about to begin.
Knowing that March leads to
April.
Each of you should know
I'm only joking just read the
bold letters.

Hardee no match for Streaks, Abein


By PETER McMAHON
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING The Sebring Blue
Streaks punished Hardee and
impeoved their district record to 8-
2 after Friday nights 7-1 win over
the visiting Wildcats.
Tony Vazquez started the Blue
Streak charge in the 3rd inning with
a two-RBI single to right field that
brought in Chaz Abeln and Charlie
Peck.
The Streaks added another run in
the fourth when Nick Maloyed
scorched an RBI-single into center-
field bringing home Justin
Tomlinson, who had walked with
two outs.
The Streaks started the 5th inning
with a bomb from Vazquez into the
centerfield wall that drove in
pinch-runner Cody Higgins, who
had came in for Peck after a. frozen-
rope single.
The Streaks held a strong grip on
their 4-0 lead after five innings and
increased it in the
sixth by making the Sebring
sky rain baseballs as
Sebring produced five 7
hits. Hardee
Adam Simmons
showed his extraordi-
nary strength and

power as he blasted a moon-shot
that hit the wall and drove in both
Maloyed and Abeln.
Vazquez would also eventually
come in to score Sebring's last run
of the night.
The Wildcats attempted to fight


back in desperation after putting
two men on base in the seventh.
After a wild pitch sent Jake
Benevides dashing for home plate
to score Hardee's only run,
Sebring head coach Hoppy Rewis
relieved Abeln and sent in Steven


Fortner to close out the game.
Abeln had another consistent per-
formance after allowing only three
hits and no earned runs as he struck
out seven Wildcats in the district
game.

Troy University
TROY, Ala. You'll have
S_ to forgive Troy University
sophomore Ben Mayworth if
he gets a little extra sleep
this week.
You'll also have to forgive
- the permanent smile that is
S etched across the face of the
b Sebring native.
~ You see, Mayworth, who is
a member of the Troy
University rodeo team, had a
busy weekend.
In addition to competing
- "" ~ with the Troy University
rodeo team in Mississippi
over the weekend, Mayworth
also competed in the profes-
sional rodeo in Montgomery.
In was in Montgomery
where Mayworth made his
biggest splash, winning the
calf roping competition.
Winning-any event-in--..
rodeo is big becasenitre,..,-.
fields are usually large and
jammed with talented cow-
boys. Such was the case at
the Southeastern Livestock
Exposition Rodeo at Garrett
Coliseum where hundreds of
the top cowboys in the coun-
orton 204 try took part in the competi-
ert 203 tion.
"There were 51 other guys
y Night Men's in the calf roping, including
es six or seven of the top ropers
ard 28 in the world," Mayworth
, 7 said. "It was very prestigious
ard 802
ey 759


for me to win that event and
it means that, maybe some-
day, I'll have a chance to go


TroyTrojan.com photo
Sebring alum Ben Mayworth
pro as well."
..... "C611ge rodeo cowboys are
-tit.lfke other o llege athletes
in one major way their
sport is not sanctioned by the
NCAA.


When collegians take part
in a rodeo, they pay an entry
fee for each event, they also
have to pay to transport their
animals and pay for their
upkeep.
But, when they win, they
also win prize money, just
like the professionals.
For Mayworth, the win in
Montgomery meant a pay-
check of $1,396. Hardly a
bounty, but enough to help
with the cost of going to col-
lege, traveling the college
circuit in the Ozark Region
and taking care of Keystone,
his 18-year-old quarter horse.
Mayworth said the big
crowds in Montgomery didn't
bother him, but that reality
set in when he realized he
was leading his event.
"I was in my own world
until I finished and realized
the guy behind me in the.,
standings, boug Farr. made it
to the National Pinals Rod'e" -6 =

last year," Mayworth said.
"When I realized that I had
beaten him I almost shed a
tear."


In addition to competing at
S.._ the pro rodeo in
Montgomery, Mayworth also
competed with the Trojans at
the Mississippi State Rodeo
. *. in Meridian, Miss.
- He finished sixth in
- Meridian despite having the
S -- - lead after the first round.
"I did well in the first
S" round, but had a little trouble
.. .- in the second round,"
- Mayworth said. "The calf got
Sup and escaped on me, so I
0 "didn't get a time."
Mayworth said it took a lot
of planning and road time in
order for him to compete in
two places at the same time.
S a "The tough thing is to get
entered where you don't have
S- to be at both rodeos at the
S . same time," he said. "You
S. have to take your chances a
a -little when you enter a pro
rodeo, but I got lucky

because I had a Thursday and
Saturday morning draw. That
allowed me to work around
the college rodeo."
Mayworth competed in
Montgomery in the morning
and then drove 220 miles to
Meridian to compete in the
evening.
Fortunately, his regular
team-roping partner was not
able to compete in Meridian,
so he only had one event to
worry about.
Such is the life of a col-
lege rodeo cowboy, where
sometimes your teammates
are from other schools and,
in Mayworth's case, female.
"Jill Cooper is my team
roping partner, and she goes
to Vanderbilt," Mayworth
said. "She's from New
Mexico and she competes as
an independent because
Vandy doesn't have a team.
We met at the high school
national finals in Gillette,
Wyoming. She's as tough as
any guy going."
Mayworth said coming to
Troy to go to school and
compete in rodeo was a per-
fect fit for him.
"The great thing for me

about college rodeo is having
a place to practice and good
livestock to practice with,"
he said. "Having a covered
place to practice is big for
me. There are a lot of other
schools out there, but Troy
was the best for me because
it is close to home and it is
preparing me to face just
about anything."
Mayworth currently stands
second in the Ozark Region
in tie down roping and, while
he has his eyes on the top
spot in the region, he is
focused on returning to the
college national finals in ,.
June in Wyoming. This time
he'd like to go with the entire
Troy team.
"I went last year as an indi-
vidual, but the team finished
third and didn't qualify,"
Mayworth said. "Right now
we are in second, even though
we have some new people on
the team. I think we'd do well
if we got to go, but we still
have some work to do."
Mayworth and the Troy
rodeo teams will be back in
action March 30-31 at the
University of Arkansas-
Monticello.
