Agriculture

consortium

in the works
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Rep-
resentatives of a number
of local grower groups
plan to get together
Wednesday to discuss the
possibility of cementing a
Heartland Agriculture
Coalition. So far, mem-
bers of the Highlands
County Citrus Growers
Association, the High-
lands County Cattlemen's
Association and the local
Farm Bureau have voted
to -put together such a
group in an effort to better
represent agriculture in
the area through such a
collective.
Although there are only
three groups involved in
the potential organization
at this time, organizers
envision that in the future,
caladium growers, com-
mercial nurseries, sod
operations and others
might wish to join such a
consortium.
Organizing. representa-
tives of each of the three
groups have been tapped
to work on formulating a
guiding board for such an
omnibus group.: They
would be charged with
developing by-laws and
other such foundations for
such a multimember
enterprise. "
Many of those in the
agriculture industry are
involved in more than one
area of growing some
citrus growers also have
cattle and some caladium
growers also have citrus.
groves, for example -
but proponents said the
bottom line is that there
are numerous governmen-
tal issues ranging from the
Highlands County Land
Use Management Plan to
the Everglades Restor-
S action Project that have an
impact on the entire agri-
cultural community.
The idea of the banding
4 together of agriculture
organization is not a new
one; there has been-talk of
such an umbrella group
for years. However, this
appears to be the closest
they have come to making
it a reality.

them back to her classroom
for students to explore and
investigate, which led the,
students into what turned out
to-be an in-depth study of the
world of turtles.
Students began their
inquiry by setting up their
own hypothesis and making
an educated guess as to what
animal the bones were from,
then proceeded to research
that hypothesis. Discoveries
through Internet searches
concluded that the bones
Crout found were probably
from a turtle because of the
convex shape they formed
when put together.
"It's like a big puzzle we
had to put together to figure
out what it was. We're not

student Wyatt Page said.
Through this research,
Marquese Sims found out

Tremain George learned

that a pillow would be useful

How Uncle Sam will slice up the tax pie in 2007


Metro News Service
The federal government will spend $21,992 in taxes per
household in 2007.


By BRIAN RIEDL
MCT News Service
Taxpayers rushing to complete their
1040s before the April 17 tax deadline
may stop to wonder: What are these steep'
federal taxes going for?
Washington will spend $24,106 per
household in 2007 the highest total
since World War II, and an inflation-
adjusted $4,000 more than in 2001. The
federal government will collect $21,992
per household in taxes. The remaining
$2,114 represents this year's budget
deficit per household, which, along with
all prior government debt, will be


dumped in the laps of our children.
Washington will spend this, $24,106
per household as follows:
Social Security/Medicare: $8,301.
The 15.3 percent payroll tax, split evenly
between the employer and employee,
covers most of these costs. This system
can remain sustainable only if there are
enough workers to support all retirees,
which is why it risks collapsing under the
weight of 77 million retiring baby
boomers. If nothing is done, taxes even-
tually will need to rise by' $11,651 per
household (adjusted for both inflation
and rising incomes) to pay all promised


benefits.
Defense: $4,951. The defense budg-
et covers everything from military
salaries to operations in Iraq and
Afghanistan to the research, develop-
ment and acquisition of new technolo-
gies. Lawmakers drastically reduced
defense spending following the collapse
of communism in the early 1990s. The
Sept. 11 attacks reversed this trend, and
the inflation-adjusted $1,618 per house-
hold increase since 2001 has returned
defense spending closer to its historical
levels.

volunteers and businesses that
support them.

coveted Citizen of the Year
award, honoring his contribu-

to Sharon Gunthorp at the
United Way's annual meeting.
Gunthorp served as campaign
chair for the United Way in
2006.


Highlands County Human
Services director at the end of
the month, was "absolutely
honored" to be recognized.
"I've tried to pour myself
into the community," Roberts
said, adding he was
"shocked" to receive the
award. "This is truly one of
the greatest honors in my
entire career."
Campaign Chair Sharon
Gunthorp took home the
United Way's Volunteer of the
Year Award. Gunthorp has
worked with the organization
for more than 20 years.
"I think it's important to
make sure you do what you
can in your community,"
Gunthorp said upon receiving
the award. She called her
work with United Way "very
rewarding."
Pug Martin, who teaches at
Sebring Middle School,
received the Employee
Coordinator of the ,Year,
award. Area Director Shareen
Childs said Martin was a
"driving force" in the United
Way's campaign who brought
in more than $15,000 from the
school.
Several businesses and
governmental groups were
also honored Thursday for
their contributions and fund
raising. The School Board of
Highlands County raised the
most money for the third year
in a row, with $90,476 in'
donations. The three
Highlands County Publix
locations combined their
totals for a second-place fin-
ish, with $85,625.
Alan Jay Automotive
Network was third in the
rankings, followed by
SunTrust Bank, Highlands
Independent Bank, the
Highlands County Board of
County Commissioners,
Lykes Brothers Inc., the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, and South Florida'
Community College.


In the overall campaign,
United Way raised $425,000,
falling short of what
Gunthorp called their "ambi-
tious" $500,000 goal.
Gunthorp said the focus
should be "on the amount we
did raise." She said the short-
fall could be due to several
factors including increasing
property insurance rates.
The money raised from the
2006 campaign will be spread
among 28 programs and 17
partner agencies, providing a
variety of services in and
around the county.
Community Investment Team
Chair Steve New said the
group will face "tough deci-
sions" on where to put the
money raised.
The next event on the
United Way's schedule is
their annual Day of Caring,
scheduled for May 9.

AVON PARK The field
at Avon Park High School's
Joe Franza Stadium will be
taken over this weekend -
and for a good cause.
The Avon Park Relay for
Life, sponsored by the
American Cancer Society,
will begin Saturday afternoon
at the stadium. The Relay is
an overnight event, designed
to raise awareness and money
for cancer, where groups of
.people walk laps to raise
money for cancer research.
The event is also a good
opportunity to spend time
with those who have either
been afflicted with cancer, or
knows someone who has.
"It's all about' celebrating
life, about sharing our stories,
our joys, our heartaches,"
Relay for Life committee
member Lesa, Morey said in
an e-mail.
Teri Heiring, a breast can-
cer survivor who works at
Park Elementary School, said
the Relay for Life provides a
"big boost" for cancer sur-
vivors, and also because
almost everyone knows some-
one who has had the disease.
"Cancer will hit anyone,"
she said. "In our family alone,
we've had a lot of friends that
have had cancer, so you know
that it's not isolated."
Prior to her diagnosis,
Heiring didn't have any risk
factors or indications that
would have clued her in to her
eventual diagnosis.
"None of my factors were
there," she said. "It was like
'we can't figure out why you
have this.' No matter what
kind of lifestyle you run,
you're not immune to it."
Heiring said self-examina-


tions, which will be addressed
at the Relay for Life event,
are very important in the fight
against cancer.
"The thing I can see that
people should be aware of is
to know your own body, take
self-exams and make regular
doctor visits," Heiring said.
"If you're in denial, the treat-
ment is done later and it's
more difficult."
Heiring said Relay for Life
is an excellent way to learn
facts about self-detection.
"There's a lot of education-
al facts," she said. "You learn
what to watch for."
The Avon Park Relay for
Life event will be begin
Saturday at 11:30 a.m.. The
walk begins at 1 p.m., and
various games, auctions, and
shows will take place
throughout the night. The
Luminaria ceremony will take
place at 8:30 p.m. Saturday,
the last lap will be at 5:30
a.m. Sunday, and closing cer-
emonies will be at 6:45 a.m.
Entertainment will include
music from the GI Joe Band,
a performance by the' Avon
Park High School Diamond
Steppers, a cake auction, a
talent show, dancing, cha-
rades, karaoke, and other
activities. David Flowers will
emcee the event.
A luncheon in honor of
cancer survivors, their friends
and family, and their care-
givers will be held before the
Relay starts. To RSVP for the
luncheon or for more infor-
mation, contact event chair-
person Lee Ann Hinskey at
214-8166.

Library looking for books it gave away


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEIRING Easter has
come and gone but Mary
Myers is still on the hunt for
books she inadvertently gave
away to Friends of the
Library.
For about 19 years,
Highlands County Library
systems director Mary Myers
gave surplus books' to
Friends, a non-profit organi-


zation, without approval of
the county commissioners.
During and because of the
infamous 18-month library
audit, the county began sub-
mitting a list of surplus books
for the commissioners to
approve for donation.
The board approved the
first list presented in May
2006. When the next list was
brought before it in
November, commissioner


Barbara Stewart pulled it
from the consent agenda, rais-
ing questions about actual
acquisition cost to the county,
condition and estimated
value.
The November list of books
was never approved as sur-
plus, County Administrator
Carl Cool said Thursday,
explaining it was to be resub-
mitted with the amplifying
data.


Learning about careers.


At -the March 20 meeting,
the commissioners approved a
list of surplus books.
"I thought and Mary
thought the list in March was
a total list of books not
approved in November plus
additional books," Cool said,
explaining that that was
unlikely because the
November list had 9,000
items and the subsequent
March list had 6,000.
He left open the possibility
that some of the books from
November might have been
re-shelved.
The discrepancy was
brought to light by senior
internal auditor Mary Wilson,
of the Clerk of Courts' office,
in a March 30 memorandum
to Cool, in which she stressed
"the importance of manage-
ment reliability and accounta-
bility" in giving information
to the commissioners.
Wilson's memo included
the November 2006 verbatim
minutes, which show what
additional information the
commissioners wanted and
that they did not, approve the


books as surplus.
Myers submitted several
written responses citing what
happened, from miscommuni-
cation among her staff to an
assumption that the board
would approve the surplus list
on its November consent
agenda.
"Therefore, the volunteer
who picks up the books did
not know they were not yet
approved for transfer to the
bookstore," Myers said in an
April 4 memorandum to Cool.
Cool said he's still collect-
ing facts and it's too early for
him to comment about
whether reprimands are in
order.
He gave the commissioners
copies of Myers' responses to
Wilson's memo.
As of Thursday, two com-
missioners approached him
about the situation.
"I told Mary 'You did not
have permission to give them
to the Friends, go find them,'"
Cool said of the unapproved
books.-
In one response, Myers said


the new method to surplus
items is a drastic break from
how she used to do it, which
complied with a November
1995 board directive.
"We have the authority to
do so without going before
the board of county commis-
sioners for approval of each
donation," Myers said. "Until
the library audit, the disposal
of all library materials ... was
in compliance with this poli-
cy."
Cool disagreed with Myers'
interpretation of the policy,
which he said spelled out the
WEED process, a standard-
ized method libraries use in
determining what items need
to be removed from circula-
tion.
He said the library must
adhere 'to the same surplus
rules as the rest of the coun-
ty's departments.
"I'm going to give her the
opportunity to explain," Cool
said. "The main issue is we
have to follow the rules.
Especially after we've had a
great amount of discussion of
what the procedures are."

TALLAHASSEE- Late
last month legislators
dumped the most recent per-
formance pay plan for teach-
ers, creating one with more
flexibility.
STAR, or Special Teachers
Are Rewarded, was not
received as those in the capi-
tol intended and after a third
of the districts decided
against adopting local plans,
the legislation was changed.
The new plan, called Merit
Award Pay, focuses less on
the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test scores than
STAR did, but still uses the
scores with other standard-
ized tests to determine bonus
pay.
Michel Bernier, the Florida
Education Association service
unit director for the Peace
River Basin, said too much
emphasis is still placed on
testing.

VA improves

services for

blind and low

vision veterans
The Veterans
Administration will, make
approximately $40 million
available during the next
three years to establish a
comprehensive nationwide
rehabilitation system for vet-
erans and active duty person-
nel with visual impairments.
The system will enhance
inpatient services and expand
outpatient. services through-'
out the 1,400 locations where
VA provides health care.
Under the plan, each of
VA's 21 regional networks,
called Veterans Integrated
Service Networks, will
implement a plan to provide
eye care to veterans with
visual, impairments ranging
from 20/70 to total blindness.
Basic low-vision services
will be available at all VA eye
clinics, and every network
will offer intermediate and
advanced low-vision servic-
es, including a full spectrum
of optical devices.


"Is the bill better, sure it's
better," he said. "It's going to
be extraordinarily hard to
measure teachers if you rely
on FCAT."
Bernier pointed out even
under the new plan teachers
like Highlands County's
Teacher of the Year Patricia
Hollenberg, a family and con-
sumer. sciences teacher at
Sebring High School, would
find qualifying for the bonus
hard because they don't teach
the FCAT subjects.
MAP evaluates teachers
differently than STAR, but 60
percent of the teacher assess-
ment is still based on the per-
formance of students on
statewide standardized tests
like the FCAT.
Districts are not required to
implement'MAP but won't be
eligible for funds earmarked
by legislators for the plan if
they don't.
Starting with the 2007-08
school year, districts are no
longer required to offer any
kind of performance pay
either.
"I'll be stunned if I don't
see the majority of school dis-
tricts opt out," Bernier said.
Back in February, The
School Board of Highlands
County listened to local
teachers, whose vote of 516-
274 against local implementa-
tion of STAR showed their
distaste of the program, send-


ing thousands of STAR dol-
lars back to Tallahassee.
Superintendent Wally Cox
said there are three options
for performance pay for the
2006-07 school year.
The first option allows dis-
tricts adopting STAR earlier
this. year to go ahead with the
plan.
The second option, avail-
able to Highlands County,
allows districts to work with
the new MAP plan.
The third option is to stay
with local performance pay
plans previously in place.
"Time constraints with
implementing the plan
retroactively led to the deci-
sion for Highlands County to
take option three instead of
option two," Cox said. "In the
'07-08 school year, the dis-
trict might 'adopt the MAP
plan. Specifics will be devel-
oped over the summer to be
submitted by Oct. 1 of this
year."
MAP gives more flexibility
over STAR, Cox said, so the
district will look over the new
plan to decide if implement-
ing it is the right course of
action.
Bernier, however, has his
doubts.
"The vote against STAR
was substantial," he said. "I
feel the MAP plan won't be
that much more widely
received."

Butler signs on as county s new 4-H agent


Tallahassee native, former deputy sheriff is new to 4-H, but not to agriculture


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING There's a
new 4-H agent in town. April
Davis Butler joined the
Highlands County Extension
Service late last month.


A Tallahassee native, she
has served as a school
resource officer during stints
with the Leon County
Sheriff's Office and the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office.


"School resource interested
me because I was able to work
with young adults in many
different capacities," she said.
The post allowed her .to be
a counselor, a teacher and law
enforcement officer while
providing security for the
schools. Additionally, Butler
served as an advisor for the
Youth Crime Watch Program
and, the Sheriff's Explorers.
While at the Leon County
Sheriff's Office she also
helped organize and direct a
Sheriff's Youth Camp as well
as several charity fund-rais-
ers.
Called "Camp Adventure,"
it was a camp designed to
encourage the idea of team
building.
"We took kids from differ-
ent area high schools repre-'
senting different economic
status and threw them togeth-
er for a week," she said.
"They had all kinds of differ-
ent scenarios -- like scuba
diving -- a lot of them had
never done anything like that
before."
In other instances, the
groups had workshops where
students who did not know
each other were combined
into teams that had to work
together in problem solving


exercises.
This is Butler's first experi-
ence- with the 4-H organiza-
tion but not her first foray into
the world of agriculture.
"I was never a 4-H member
growing up, but I was a mem-
ber of the FFA during high
school," she said.During
her time with that organiza-
tion Butler served both as
a chapter president and vice
president.
In addition to to serving as
the new Highlands County 4-
H agent, Butler also works
weekends at her husband's
family dairy.
Joining the 4-H organiza-
tion has proved to be a steep
learning curve for Butler but,
she said, there were some club
leaders and a lot of others in
the organization who have
been helping her to get her
feet on the ground. She also
has been e-mailing other 4-H
agents to help as she works
her way into the Highlands
County program.
One of her first big projects
will be Highlands County's
inaugural 4-H Olympics,
coming up next weekend.
Slated to be held on
Saturday, April 21, Highlands
County's 4-Hers will be invit-
ed to gather in and around the


Highlands County Agri-Civic
Center for a wide range of
activities.
"We're going to have skill-
a-thons, field day events,
leader events and even a scav-
enger hunt," she said.
Rose Sapp, who has been a
4-H advisor in the past
and now works with the coun-
ty council, has been tapped to
serve as the event chair-
woman.
"This really is an event for
all nine of the clubs to get
together to do something
fun," she said.
"We have nine clubs and
there are some of these
youngsters who really don't
know each other that well, so
this is a chance for them to get
acquainted."
There will be both fun
events as well as tests of
knowledge and acumen. The
"skill-a-thons" as they are
known will include both writ-
ten exams as well as hands-on
tests.
"We'll have a horse event,
there'll be contests in con-
sumer science, small and
large animal science and even
a game of Jeopardy," she said.
Also scheduled will be a
number of purely fun events
for 4-H members of all ages -


- including the Cloverbuds,
who at five to eight years of
age are the youngest partici-
pants.
"We'll have them attempt to
take marbles out of a pool
with their toes, there will be
an obstacle course and we're
going to have a scavenger
hunt too," Sapp said.
Some of the most anticipat-
ed competitions will be
those for the 4-H club leaders.
"For example one game
will have leaders being blind-
folded and led through an
obstacle course by one of
their members," she said.
A fund raiser being planned
is a "kiss the pig" contest,
where the leader who garners
,the most donations will
be entitled to kiss a pig.
In addition to the events,
the youngsters will have jars
set up to make collections for
the Relay for Life event being
staged next weekend by the
American Cancer Society's
Sebring branch.
. Sapp estimated the event
would run about four hours,
beginning at 10am.
"Really, this is our first one
and we really don't know how
many people we're going to
have, so we are playing it by
ear." she said.

A beautiful mural by artist Pat Carson is near completion on
a canal seawall owned by Bob and Joanie Wetzel between
Apple Tree Avenue and Dardanella Avenue in Lake Placid.
Carson, who winters in Lake Placid, resides in Oswego,
N.Y., and has the 'Touch of Class" studio there. She was
asked by the Wetzels to paint a mural. She admitted it was
her first, but she was eager to do it. The mural features
native birds, an alligator, frogs, turtles and an otter peeping
around the greenery. Lately, 'a fish and a board have arrived
on scene and there is more to come in the fall on Carson's
return to Lake Placid. If you are boating on beautiful Lake
Grassy, be sure to motor up the canal and see this beautiful

New VA cemetery lets


vets stay close to home


The South Florida VA
National Cemetery will begin
interments this month amid
the native trees and lakes that
define the site off U.S. 441
south of Lantana Road.
There are places for full-
casket burials and for cremat-
ed remains. Only about 57
acres will be cleared when the
VA begins operations this
month, but ultimately, the
cemetery the only Veterans
Affairs cemetery in South
Florida will cover 315
acres and provide space for
115,000 burials.
As soon as the entry road
was covered in asphalt about
a week ago, area veterans
started driving through it,

Fisher House available
for families of patients
at Bay Pines Center

The Fisher House is a
"home-away-from-home"
temporary lodging for fami-
lies whose loved ones are
patients at Bay Pines VA
Medical Center. The purpose
of the Fisher House is to give
families a clean, safe haven
while their loved one is hos-
pitalized.

even as workers continued the
landscaping.
Veterans, their spouses and
dependent children are eligi-
ble for burial, he said.
According to the VA, there
are 1.8 million veterans in
South Florida. The need is so
great that the VA plans to
open cemeteries in Sarasota
and Jacksonville within the
next three years, Rotar said.
The interment includes the
grave site, opening and'clos-
ing of the grave, a marker, a
flag, perpetual 'care and
administrative cost.

SFCC students experience their futures through cooperative learning


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK When a
friend of South Florida
Community College biology
major Alicia Nottingham was
injured in an accident and saw
how physical therapy spurred
his recovery, Nottingham
thought that this might be the
career for her. However,
Nottingham knew nothing
about physical therapy. She
had never met a physical ther-
apist, had never been in the
clinical setting, and didn't
have a clue about how the
machines human or
mechanical even worked.
That has changed. Since
January, the Arcadia student
has taken part in SFCC's
Cooperative Learning pro-
gram an educational
arrangement set up by the col-
lege's Campus Career
Planning, Job Placement, and
Cooperative Education
department that gives students
like Nottingham the chance to
thoroughly explore a profes-
sion before transferring to a
four-year college or universi-
ty.
Nottingham shadows
Sebring athletic trainer Chuck
Waltman two days a week at
the CORA Rehabilitation
Center in Sebring, which
helps patients recover from
injuries and surgeries. While
Nottingham appreciates the
opportunity to observe the
therapeutic process up close,
Waltman enjoys passing along
his expertise to someone who
drinks in every word.
Waltman knows what it's
like to have a mentor. When
he was pursuing his master's
degree, he was assigned a
mentor who showed and told
him facts about the field that
didn't appear in his textbooks.
His time with Nottingham has
reinforced his interest in
teaching. And, Waltman's
patients were impressed that
Nottingham would spend so
, much time at the clinic 120
hours to learn everything
she can about the field.
"They are thrilled to learn
that Alicia doesn't have to be
here in order to graduate,"
Waltman said. "They can see
how she's. going far beyond
what she has to."
For Nottingham, her
Cooperative Learning venture
is already making her SFCC


T MF ':
Alicia Nottingham (left) has no doubts she wants to pursue a career in physical therapy, now
that she's been shadowing sports therapist Chuck Waltman at the CORA Rehabilitation
Center in Sebring. Waltman is participating in South Florida Community College's
Cooperative Learning program, which gives students hands-on career experience before grad-
uating and continuing at a four-year college or university.


biology classes more relevant,
and she now has much clearer
goals about what she plans to
study once she graduates from
SFCC in December 2007.
'This is exactly what the
college's Cooperative
Learning program is designed
to accomplish, said Paul Fox,
director, SFCC Career
Services. With SFCC enroll-
ment steadily growing and
diversifying, Fox's depart-
ment is always on the lookout
for local employers and busi-
nesses that are willing to take
a curious student under their
wing during an ,academic
term. The academic Coopera-
tive Learning experience is
offered to students during the
fall, spring, and summer
terms.
In every case, Fox said,
employers are coached to
make the arrangement a real
learning experience so that
students can earn from one to
four college credits by com-
pleting their co-op assign-
ments. Employers are asked
to outline students' responsi-


abilities, to set specific goals
and objectives, to supervise
students' time in the work-
place, and to complete two
performance evaluations. The
educational aspects are
approved and overseen by an
SFCC faculty member to
ensure students earn their
credits.
According to Fox, having
an extra hand in the work-
place a few days.a week gives
businesses extra flexibility.
It's common for employers
who have "co-oped" a student
to hire them later on, which
can reduce employers' train-
ing and recruitment costs.
That's already happening at
LK Artworks Gallery and
Graphics in downtown
Sebring, where artist Linda
Kegley brags about her SFCC
co-op student, Jazmine
Cuencas, who uses her
Cooperative Learning stint to
gain hands-on experience in
public relations, the field she
plans to pursue.
After the end of the spring
term in May, Kegley hopes to


hire Cuencas for the summer.
Cuencas "is not like an
after-school worker," said
Kegley. "We're giving her
real responsibility, and she
follows through."
Kegley said that for the last
Galley Walk event, which
showcases the town's growing
number of art galleries,
Cuencas prepared news
releases, coordinated enter-
tainment, ordered specialty
supplies and favors, and
updated Kegley's database for
direct mail invitations.
On an ongoing basis, she
creates gallery tags, arranges
in-store art displays, and is
now involved in creating a
marketing plan for the
gallery's collection of vintage
race posters.
For Kegley, "It's a joy to be
around bright young people"
like Cuencas. "Her enthusi-
asm is like a tonic. Jaz is a
quick study. She's reliable,
she's conscientious, and she
presents herself well."
Yes, there's some paper-
work, Kegley acknowledges,

world responsibilities for her Cooperative Learning experi-
ence at LK Artworks Gallery and Graphics in Sebring. The
college placed Cuencas at the gallery, where she is super-
vised by owner Linda Kegley.


but it's all about giving
Cuencas real-world experi-
, ence. "The college is putting
out the cream of the crop.
They have to be ambassadors
for the college." When other
shop owners meet Cuencas,
"They're all jealous. They've
all had good experiences with
her."
Kegley had a hand in writ-
ing Cuencas's course objec-
tives a task she realized
she enjoyed.
When Cuencas describes to
other SFCC students her
experience at LK Artworks,
she uses the word "fun."
"I can't believe how much
fun I have," Cuencas said.
"Mr. Fox was able to offer me
a variety of choices-of places
to work in communications.
He knew I was interested in
public relations. Here (at the
gallery) we're dealing with art
and merchandising, but we're
also doing marketing. When I
first came, I never thought I,
would get the experience that
I have."
She's interviewing artists,


submitting reports, perform-
ing projects that meet specific
goals, and is following a syl-
labus, as required.
By sitting down together to
working on a series of goals
in the learning plan, Cuencas
believes, the employers prob-
ably get more out of their stu-
dents than they may have first
imagined.
Fox said just about any
local business or agency can
give SFCC students the kind
of perspective they need to
.plot a career path. He places
students in a variety of med-
ical facilities and only
some of them relate to patient
care.
Students work v.ith 'eteri-
narians, radiology depart-
ments, accounting offices, __
local newspapers, computer
maintenance departments, and
more.

participating SFCC's Co-
operative Learning Program,

New school calendar moves spring break


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
Highlands County students
will find themselves with an
extra week to relax this sum-
mer before starting another
school year.
No, it's not an elaborate
senior prank thought up
through a collaboration of the
three senior classes, but new
legislation sent down the
pipeline from Tallahassee.
The new law states schools'
must start no earlier than two
weeks before Labor Day,
moving the start date in
Highlands County back a
week for the 2007-08 school
year to Aug. 20 from last
year's start date of Aug. 14.
Teachers start school Aug.
13, with a week to prepare for
incoming pupils.
The school will still have
its normal Thanksgiving
break (Nov. 21-23) and
Christmas break (Dec. 24-Jan.
7), but spring break will be
moved to the first week of
April, starting Monday,
March 31.
Statewide testing days for
Florida's Comprehensive
Assessment Test on reading,
math and science are respon-
sible for the change. Next
year's tests are scheduled for
March 12-25, affecting the
days of spring break.
"We are starting school
later, so FCAT has been
scheduled later," Manage-
ment Information Systems
coordinator Becky Fleck said.
Deputy Superintendent Jim
Bible wants to see if next
year's calendar will stay the
same or if the state will man-
date that it be moved again, so
the 2008-09 school calendar
has still not been adopted by
the School Board of
Highlands County.
While the new school cal-


endar doesn't change the
number of instruction days
for students, a couple days
have been added to the calen-
dar for leadership planning.
"Those are new to our cal-
endar, it's not a scheduled day
for kids," Fleck said.
The two leadership plan-


p GD


ning days, are scheduled for
Nov. 12 and Feb. 14.
Ten early release days are
on the calendar, spread.
throughout the year until the
last day of school.
The 2007-08 school year.
will end Thursday, June 4,
with an early release day.

BONES
Continued from 1A
.room as everyone examined
their findings and discussed
their hypotheses with each
other and their teacher.
The students measured,
compared, read, discussed
and brought their natural
curiosity into making learn-
ing meaningful for them.
Crout incorporated vocabu-
lary and concepts, relating
the school standards to the
learning, as students explored
what was of interest to each
of them.
The excitement of not
knowing has spurred on stu-
dents to beg to get on the
computer on any free or
down time they might have
to continue their search as to
what they have for bones.
Another group of students
asked to set a bulletin board
to display information found
about the mystery bones thus
far, so students could narrow
down and share what each
had learned about his or her
finds.
The turtle bones even fell
into the realm of a unit Crout
is presently teaching.
Through a.mini-grant from a
Water Resources Project and
directed by Dorthea
Strickland, the district sci-
ence coordinator, Crout
received training that extend-
ed the use of literature into
science. Through this pro-
gram and the use of litera-
ture, she has been able to
relate even more science con-
cepts to everyday life in
Florida, the importance of
water use and how it affects
local animals and the oceans.
Also as part of this pro-
gram, students have been
conducting various experi-
ments that allow them to
learn the importance of water
and how it relates to the life
cycles of all living things.
Due to their knowledge of
life cycles, students queried
why,-how and where the
owner of the bones may have
died.
- Tapping into the students'
learning styles has made
them to want to learn more
about the science around
them. A simple thing like an
observation cage another
way Crout peaks her stu-

ing), Antonio Williams, Tremain George, teacher Jolynne Crout and Marquese Sims.


dents' curiosity to want to
learn allows students to
observe nature and then learn
from it.
"We have had lizards,
bugs, spiders and plants in
this container," Crout said.
"Every day, we go on the
playground and students
bring something new they
want to show me or share
with the class. Each time we
find a new style (of) lizard,
we catch it and learn about
what it is. All of my students
now know the difference
between a female and a male
lizard. They know what they
eat and how the fdod pycle
works to keep the world alive
and well.
"We put our finds under a
.microscope when possible, as
well. Students took shards of
the mystery bones and
observed them under the
microscope, then they related
what they saw to recent
bones of a pelican found on
the beach.
"For two students, it even
brought up more curiosity
about the difference between
a turtle and a bird."
Crout said next on the.
agenda is to figure out what
scientists "study turtles.
Students have learned that

people who study sea animals
are called marine biologists,
but they are still trying to
find out what a person who
studies turtles in particular
are called. Crout plans to
contact someone in the area
that might be willing to
extend their knowledge of
turtles, as well as help con-
firm what the class has so far
learned about its specimen.
Learning is exciting to stu-
dents, but it is also exciting
for the teachers watching


their students grow from this
'type of hands-on experiences.
Who knows, maybe one day
one of these students because
of their experiences will
become a famous scientist,
zoologist, archaeologist or
just someone who is curious
enough to want to explore the
wonderful things the world
around them has to offer.
And, if that happens, they
can say it all started with a
pile of bones on a Florida-
beach.


TAX
Continued from 1A
Anti-poverty programs:
$3,550. Nearly half of this
spending subsidizes state
Medicaid programs that pro-
vide health services to poor
families. Other low-income
spending includes: Temporary
Assistance for Needy
Families (TANF), food
stamps, housing subsidies,
child-care subsidies,
Supplemental Security
Income (SSI) and low-income
tax credits.,
Despite recent rhetoric
about "cuts for poor," federal
anti-poverty spending now
tops 3 percent of GDP for the
first time ever, and state and
local governments add anoth-
er 2 percent of GDP.
Interest on the federal
debt: $2,071. The federal
government is $9 trillion in
debt. It owes $5 trillion to
public bond owners, and the,
rest to other federal agencies
(mostly to repay the Social
Security trust fund, which
lawmakers raid annually).
Despite rising debt, record-
low interest rates have limited
costs.
As interest rates rise back
to normal levels, these costs
will spike..
Federal employee
retirement benefits:, $907.'
This spending funds the
retirement and disability ben-
efits of federal employees,
including the military.
i* Health research/regula-
tion: $664. This spending is
up 51 percent since 2001, and
much of this growth is con-
centrated in the National
Institute of Health. The cate-
gory also includes the Food
and Drug Administration and
dozens of grant programs for
health providers.
Veterans' benefits:
$627. The federal government
provides income and health
benefits to war veterans.
Spending is up 36 percent
since 2001.
Education: $584.
Education spending is prima-
rily a state and local function;
9 percent of the total comes
from Washington. Federal
education spending has
surged 62 percent since the
2001 enactment of the No
Child Left Behind Act. Most


federal dollars are spent on
low-income school districts,
special education and college
student financial aid.
Highways/mass transit:
$418. Most highway and
mass-transit spending is
financed by the 18.4 cent per-
gallon federal gas tax.
Washington subtracts an
administrative cost and sends
this money back to the states
with numerous strings
attached. Some economists
suggest it would be more effi-
cient to let states collect this
tax and decide how to spend
the money themselves.
Justice administration:
$392. Justice spending
includes federal attorneys and
prisons, as well as law
enforcement grant programs.
New homeland security costs
have added $100 per house-
hold to justice spending.
Natural resources/envi-
ronment: $305. This includes
national parks, federal lands,
water projects and environ-
mental clean-up.
International affairs:
$304. This includes foreign
economic and military assis-
tance, operation of American
embassies abroad, and contri-
butions to organizations such
as the United Nations.
International spending has
nearly doubled since Sept. 11.
Unemployment bene-
fits: $299. Unemployment
costs fluctuate based on the
number of unemployed
Americans. This year, unem-
ployment costs are decreasing
as job growth continues.
Community and region-
al development: $282. The
doubling of spending in this
category since 2004 comes
from the Federal Emergency
Management Agency
(FEMA), which is financing
much of the Hurricane
Katrina relief.
The programs listed above
cover $23,655 per household.
The remaining $451 is allo-
cated to all other federal pro-
grams, including farm subsi-
dies, social services, space
exploration, air transportation
and energy.
Taxpayers must decide for
themselves if they're getting
their money's worth.


Lake Placid man found dead in car


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID -- Sheriff deputies are-
waiting for the medical examiner's report on a
man found dead in his car Thursday.
Lt. John Chess, a detective supervisor with
the Highlands County Sheriff's Office, said
family members last saw Jeffery Baker, 52, of
- Lake Placid, during Easter dinner Sunday.
Having not heard from him since then, they
went to his 1041 Breckinridge Ave. home
Thursday to check on him.
He was behind the wheel of his 2000
Plymouth passenger car in the driveway,


POOL
Continued from 1A
drowning accidental.
:"Hopefully, the baby will pull
through."
But, he noted, such inci-
dents while tragic serve as a
reminder to pool owners to
review their setups.
Jacalyn Jansen, co-owner
Sof Spas, Pools and Patios,
said the law requires home-
owners to surround their
pools with barriers 4 feet tall.
In addition, audible alarms
must be used on every door
that leads to an in-ground
pool.
There are other layers of
safety available for a price,
Jansen said, but the most
effective measure is free.
"There is nothing, nothing,
nothing ... that is an accept-
able substitute to competent
adult supervision," she said,


Chess said.
Though foul play is not suspected, Chess
said the body was sent to the-state Medical
Examiner's Office for an autopsy which will
determine cause and time of death, expected to
be sometime Sunday.
Asked' about his medical history, Baker's
family reported he hadn't been to a doctor in
some time, iChess said. The, lieutenant didn't
know whether Baker had a history of alcohol
or drug abuse.
The medical examiner will pull Baker's
medical history as a part of his investigation.
Baker wasn't married, Chess said.


calling on parents to employ
personal responsibility, logic
and common sense in addition
to safety products.
Readily available devices
include 'alarms triggered by
waves or displaced water,
floatation vests that children
can't remove themselves,
laser motion sensors and even
a flash card on a lanyard.
Called a Water Watcher, the
card is given away with a
floatation vest that Jansen
sells. The adult wearing the
reminder around his or her
neck is designated to focus on
the pool.
"It's a way to pass respon-
sibility without assuming,"
Jansen said, explaining the
card reminds the wearer of his
role while cautioning others
to not distract him.
It is handy at pool parties,
barbecues and other outdoor
gatherings during which it
may be assumed that "some-


body else" is watching the
children when "no one is truly
paying attention" otherwise,
according to Jansen.
"Any water is inviting for a
child," Jansen said. "Children
are taught water is a pleasant
place to be. It's an enjoyable
experience."


AG
Continued from 1A
idea forward as much as any-
thing is the pending
Everglades Restoration
Project. Many people do not
know that the Kissimmee
River Basin now is being
referred to as "the northern
Everglades," which leaves
many growers and cattlemen
nervous as to what kinds of
government regulations might
be coming their way, despite
what kinds of federal funding
might be part of the project.
In short, many of the local
agriculturalists want to make
certain they stay in the infor-
mation loop when it comes to
such things and aren't on the
short end 6f any surprises.
Members of the founding
groups were quick to point
out that they each would con-

tinue to keep their individual
identities and. organizational
structures. They noted there
might be instances where one
member might be at odds with
another over a given issue,
but said it appears the similar-
ities far outweigh any small


differences there might be
between members.
The overall idea is that
agriculture information might
be more widely spread and
that local agriculture may
speak with a stronger, 'clearer
voice.

Captain Nathan P. Rowan, a
Class of 2000 graduate of the
United States Air Force
Academy, will be the guest
speaker for the annual
Highlands County Schools
Science and Mathematics
Honors program.
The program was established
16 years ago by the Florida
Highlands Chapter of the Air
Force Association in conjunc-
tion with the Highlands County
schools' superintendent's
office, explained retired Air
Force Colonel William E.


Hutchison, AFA chapter presi-
dent.

Clients at Visions ADT work on the pins made of puzzle
pieces, to be worn in support for a cure of autism in chil-
dren and adults.


Visions ADT clients recognize

Autism Awareness Month


The month of April is
Autism Awareness Month and
Visions ADT, who serves
adults with developmental
disabilities, is taking part to
help spread the word.
Special pins made out of
jigsaw puzzle pieces that the
individuals at Visions ADT
designed and made can be
worn in support for a cure for
the children and adults with
autism. Informational flyers
announcing Autism
Awareness also have been
printed and are being handed
out.
Autism is a disorder of the
brain function, affecting one
in 250 people.
Children and adults 'ith
autism may:
Not understand % hat ou
say
Appear deaf
Be unable to speak or
speaks with difficult
Engage in repetitl\e
behaviors
Act upset for no apparent
reason
Appear insen iltie to
pain
Dart awa- from \ou
unexpectedly
Engage in self-siimulat-
ing behaviors (i.e hand flap-
ping or rocking)
Helpful hints for interact-
ing with someone % ho has
autism:
Speak slo\ l\ and use
simple language
Use concrete terms
Repeat simple questions
Allow time for response
Give lots of praise


Do not attempt to physi-
cally block self-stimulating
behavior
Remember that each
individual with autism is
unique and may act different-
ly than others
For more information, call
(800) 3-autism or go online at
www.autism-society.org.


It has been pointed out by
both the AFA and the county
superintendent's office that the
nation needs young people to
major in science math as it is
essential, not only for the coun-
try's economy, but the country's
defense as well.
Today's students who excel
in those disciplines will be the
leaders in the business, industri-
al and technological fields in
the years to come,
Superintendent Wally Cox said.
Each year, a guest, speaker
has been invited for the pro-
gram. These have included per-
sons from the academia, the
military, industry and govern-
ment. Among the guest speak-
ers have been college presi-
dents, presidents of major
industrial corporations, military
officers and even an astronaut.
This year's speaker comes
with an impressive background
in the military. Rowan enlisted
in the Air Force in 1993 and


trained as a civil engineering
squadron specialist in heating,
ventilation, air-conditioning
and refrigeration. After, three
years in the enlisted ranks, he
applied for and was accepted as
a cadet at the Air Force
Academy. Graduating in 2000
with honors, he entered the
Euro-NATO Joint Jet Pilot
Training Program in 2001.
In January 2006; he began
his present assignment as an Air
Liaison Officer with the 10th
Division presently based at Fort
Drum, N.Y.
Rowan has been awarded the
Air Medal, .Air Force
Commendation Medal, Army
Commendation Medal, Air
Force Achievement Medal with
oak leaf cluster, Air Force Good
Conduct Medal, National
Defense Medal with oak leaf
cluster, Global War on
Terrorism Expeditionary Medal
and the Global War on
Terrorism Service Medal.

By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
irst he built it, then he sold it,
then he bought it back again,
reworked it and now Ed Fisher
plans to debut a new creation at
Lakeland's Sun 'n Fun Fly-In April
17-23.
Dubbed "L'il Bitts," it's a sport aviation
replica of an S1 Pitts Special. Originally built
by Curtis Pitts in the mid 1940s, the Pitts
Special became dominant in world aerobatic
flying in the 1960s and '70s.
It's still the aircraft of choice for many of
the International Aerobatic Competition mem-
bers and the red and white biplanes can be
seen in the skies of Highlands County when
the IAC comes for their meets at the Sebring
Regional Airport.
Fisher began designing the replica better
than a decade ago, and said his goal was to
provide a cost-efficient kit plane for entry
level sport aerobatic flyers.
"Actually, I designed and built most of the
plane when we lived up in northeast Ohio and
then I sold it. But once I was established
down here, I went north and bought it back
again and finished it up down here," he said.
The plane is what Fisher referred to as a
"standoff-scale replica," meaning it is a close
resemblance to the plane that inspired it.
"Unless you put the two of them next to
each other, it really looks like a Pitts. This
one has more wing area and less weight. Plus
this one has a Rotax engine," he said.
Fisher has been painting the airplane and
looking for a local artist to add the finishing
touches. Those would include the FAA-
assigned numbers and a small skunk painted
on the outside of the headrest behind the
cockpit.
"The original mascot on the Pitts Special
prototype was a little skunk holding a flower.
They called it the 'Little Stinker,'" he
explained.
Because Fisher planned to paint his new
plane in the same colors, he decided having a
similar emblem on his replica model might be
a fitting tribute to Pitts.
In addition to designing and building the
aircraft, Fisher has made a good living in the
world of restoration of antique aircraft.


News-Sun photo by SUSAN FOSTER
Ed Fisher and his wife Val set one of the wings on L'il Bitts at their hangar at the Sebring
Regional Airport. The plane will make its debut next week at the Sun 'n Fun Fly-In. It's the
second largest air show in the country, only behind Oskosh, Wis.


"I've been involved in the experimental,
ultralight and light plane business my whole
life, mostly with prototype development and
new design," he said.
-rtfact, Fisher's father and mother both


were aircraft builders, so it was natural that
he followed in their footsteps. A two-time
ultralight grand champion at America's
largest air show in Oshkosh, Wis., he also has
-bMeinvolved with aircraft racing throughout


his career.
He's even worked with Bob Tullius, doing
some painting on the restoration of vintage
and historic race cars.
Fisher said his approach on the Pitts
Special replica would be a new approach on
an old idea.
The plane is built to withstand the rigors of
sportsman aerobatics, which would be a first
in what is known as the light sport category.
New light sport aviation class regulations
permit people who normally would not have
an FAA certificate to fly sport planes, using
their driver's license as their certificate.
"The regulations do not disallow aerobatic
flight, so my goal was to provide a light sport
aircraft alternative for primary aerobatic
flight," he said.
That means the plane would cost less than
some of the more expensive custom- and fac-
tory-built aerobatic craft.
Fisher said his creation is a bit bigger than
a Pitts Special, but comes in at half the
weight.
"For.instance, the Rotax engine in my
plane is 120 pounds less than the Lycoming
engine used in the Pitts," he said.
That caused him to change the design
somewhat including the wing stagger -
and increasing the wing area as well as the
cockpit of the aircraft.
"It's a fabric-covered airplane, and the
wing is a total departure from anything Curtis
Pitts did. It is an all-aluminum structure inter-
nally, with tubular spars and ribs," he said.
Fisher's company, Raceair, had some of its
aircraft on display at the Sport Aviation Expo
this past January at the Sebring Regional
Airport, including the Skylite, which has the
appearance of a single-engine Cessna or Piper
Cub.
He also said Raceair Designs could build,
test, and de-bug new prototypes either from
their own designs or by customer specifica-
tions.
"We've designed and built several proto-
type machines over the years for ourselves
and for others," he said.
Fisher has personally test flown more than
15 designs and followed through with their
test program.
His shop is at the Sebring Regional
Airport-

injustice I am suffering at the
hands of the Florida DMV I'll
jump to the present. Due to all
the extenuating circumstances
in my case, on March 27 I was
found guilty of reckless driv-
ing. That's it, nothing to do
with alcohol, no DUI.
Once the state attorney's
office correctly filed the ver-
dict papers, I was at, the
Sebring DMV office, waiting
for Tallahassee to respond.
After waiting several hours, I
was told by a kind woman
named Debbie she would save
me the five- to six-mile walk
out the next day and for me to
just call. Finally, April 3, she
informed me that Tallahassee
informed her I must go to DUI
school, $215, because I did
not dispute the charge of DUI
within the first 10 days after
the charge was made.
Therefore, I must pay about
$155-$160 to get my driver's
license back. And they are
keeping the DUI charge on
record.
This. tells me the DMV has
the God-given right to totally
ignore Judge Anthony Lamar.
Ritenour's findings/verdict in
his court room. For if the
Tallahassee office of the
DMV acknowledged his rul-
ing I would have had my dri-
ver's license back at a cost of
$10, which is the correct
amount for it being suspended
temporarily for the crime of
reckless driving. Hence I pray


it appears to any and all read-
ing this that the DMV is the
one whose verdict carries
weight and Honorable Judge
Ritenour's decision means
nothing in Tallahassee. So I
ask you, why don't we just get
put before the DMV when
charged with a traffic
offense? They apparently
have the final say? They have
the power to say "No, we
. don't see this as a reckless
driving charge." Yet the
Honorable Judge can fine you
$300 fine and $228 court cost.
Then Tallahassee requires
$160 to get your driver's
license back only after you
pay out $215 for DUI school.
Could someone please tell
me just who's getting that
$215. Do they split it?
Moral of this story is:
Should you be rightly or
wrongly charged with a DUI
in the state of Florida, do not
trust addresses in the phone
book and if you have no ride,
tell your family to take care
and walk over to the nearest
DMV hardship license place
and speak to them in person
(It's only a little over 100
miles). Last, but by no means
least, do not get happy if
found not guilty by any judge
in Sebring, maybe anywhere
in Florida, of a DUI because
you are still guilty in the more
powerful office of DMV in
Tallahassee.
Please do not mistaken my
letter to mean I condone
drinking and driving for I
have lost family as victims to
those that do and have. My
letter is meant to try to bring
the public's attention to the
injustice put upon those not
guilty.
Now let's add to this mess
my last finding before going
See LETTERS, page 13A


Lessons learned in children's


books still ring true today


Most writers are vora-
cious readers, and I'm no
exception. I've been read-
ing since I was old enough
to hold a book of fairy
tales in my chubby little
fingers, and those stories
taught me a lot about life.
"Rapunzel" is a good
example. She was being
held prisoner in a high
Tower from which there
was no escape. Since she
couldn't get out to the
beauty parlor for a trim,
her hair had grown very
long. She stands at her
open window, feeling sad
and lonely and combing her
lovely long tresses, when
suddenly the voice of her
lover calls out from far
below, "Rapunzel,
Rapunzel, let down your
long hair so I may climb up
and hold you in my arms."
Now, that sounds roman-
tic, but I worried that his
weight hanging on her hair
would give her a sprained
neck or at the very least
a headache. I think the les-
son to be learned in this
story is that a maiden
should choose her hero
very carefully, or she may
find herself snatched bald-
headed instead of being
rescued.
In another tale, I was
delighted when
Rumpelstiltskin lost his
temper after a maiden he
was holding captive
guessed his real name. That
wicked gnome stamped his
feet so hard that he disinte-
grated or fell through
the floor, I can't remember
which. But I do remember
the moral: when you lose


Shiela
Speaks
Shiela Ryan

your temper, you hurt your-
self more than the object of
your anger.
The horror of Hansel and
Gretel being held captive
while the wicked witch fat-
tens them up for the dinner
table is a tale worthy of
Stephen King novels. There
are many lessons to be
learned from that one and
several morals, but no
recipes.
My favorite tale is the
one in which a prince
endeavors to rescue his
beloved princess from a
castle where she is being
held captive by an evil
king. In order to reach her,
the prince must first climb
the high wall surrounding
the castle and then jump
down on the other side.
Standing on top of the
wall, the ground seems
very far away and he
begins to worry that he
may be injured when he
jumps. The longer he hesi-
tates, the farther away the
ground seems and the high-
er the wall becomes.
Eventually, his love for the
beautiful maiden over-
comes his fears and he
leaps down. The next
instant the prince finds
himself on the soft grass,
unhurt; the wall wasn't
nearly as high as he
thought it was.
The moral here is that
the more you worry about

Meteorologist loss

felt by many
Editor:
Keith Kate so eloquently
brought to the forefront and
validated all the people in the
Channel 8 viewing range,
who are stunned in disbelief
of the loss of (meteorologist)
John Winter.
Speaking from my own
reaction, when I heard Bob
Hite report the very sad news,
I recall sitting bolt upright
digging the fingers of both
hands into the upholstery of
my chair and saying out loud
"What did I hear? It can't be
true!" I couldn't cry, I could-
n't do anything, especially
fully grasp the truth of the
fact. I'm sure there are many
others who reacted in much
the same way. We all loved
John Winters and a good


many of us got out of bed
sooner than we had to just to
catch John's forecast and
enjoy his good humor, sweet
smile and boyish grin!
I found myself asking why
didn't I see the signs in his
broadcast Tuesday evening;
however there appeared to be
no evidence of anything awry
in John's persona. He seemed
so natural smiling, laughing
and as always a good report of
the weather.
People everywhere will
remember John for the bless-
ing he was to all of us. I don't
understand this, John, or how
it all came to be. All I know is
I'm so thankful for the many
times you made me laugh. I
could always count on you to
brighten my day and tell us
what was going on high up in
the heavens.
We'll miss you now and

Stranger is a

blessing to family
Editor: .
On Wednesday I was in the
Lake Placid CVS at the phar-
macy counter trying to have
my 6-year-old son's prescrip-
tion filled to find that his
insurance (Medicaid) will no
longer cover any of his med-
ications. Curious, I asked


what the price would be to
pay for the medication out of
pocket and was informed that
the cost was $100.
I was astonished by this, as
I am the mother of a low
income family and work very
hard to barely get by.
Reluctantly I was willing to
pay this outrageous price. I
requested the medication be
filled per the doctor's orders.
This is where I want to cry,
because the older woman
behind us in line politely
apologized for intruding and
requested that we allow her to
pay for the medication.
I was shocked and over-
whelmed by the thought of a
total stranger making such a
gesture.
I tried to refuse and she
made a brief statement that
she has eight grandchildren
and knows it can be very dif-
ficult for many parents these
days. I once again tried to
refuse still in shock and could
not fully utter any other words
than oh, my god.
She gently placed her pre-
scription on the counter stat-
ing that she only needed to
have the one item filled, along
with two $50 bills. Before I
could completely absorb what
was happening, she left.
I tried searching both the
store and the parking lot to no
avail. I never had a chance to
thank her properly, and I do
not know who she is.
Her gracious act had even
astonished my 8-year-old son,

who stood there with his jaw
dropped, commenting that the
woman was way too nice. I
could not believe how meager
she made her actions to be.
I explained to my son that
there are many very kind
hearted people in this world,
though they may be far and
few between, but they are
there. It would be wonderful
if we lived in a world where
there were more people such
as this woman. I am sure that
she is a blessing to her family,
as I know even with our brief
encounter with her, she has
been a blessing to mine.
As I mentioned I have no
idea who this woman is or
even how to begin to thank
her. I would like to find a way
to publicly thank her for her
generosity. Hopefully I may
be able to do so with your

Wells Motor is a

good company
Editor:
Many years ago I bought a
used 1986 Dodge van from
Wells Motors when they were
on Main Street in Avon Park
and the salesman was Don
Arnold. I am sorry that he has
died as he sure was one real
good man. Since that time
several years later, I was up in
Ocala where I traded for a
2000 Dodge, which I still
have. I have traded several
places.
One place that I thought
was good after spending a lot,

something, the scarier it

turned out to be a lemon.
Another that I thought was
good turned out the same
way. The last one I went in to
see about something, the price
came out to more than $700
which I turned down.
I went to Wells Motors on
U.S. 27 and got the work done
for about $176 (which there
was not all the stuff wrong
that the other place said).
The other thing, I took in
the van to have it all checked
out. They went through it and
told me what had to be done.
They did the job through and
also packed the wheels on my
travel trailer and for a decent
price.
I would recommend them
to anyone and anytime. To
me, they care about their cus-
tomers. I sure wish that there
were more like them. This

First orchid show

a big success
Editor:
There are a hundred ways
to say it, but in the end, they
all mean the same ... thank
you.
Thank you to all who
attended the first orchid show
in Highlands. The Orchid
Society of Highlands County
would also like to thank the
radio stations and businesses
that placed flyers in their win-


opening or the enemy waiting
to greet them, but most of the
men landed safely on the
ground.
Now I'm all grown up, so I
read grown-up books. But
whenever I'm faced with a
difficult decision, I think of
the frightened prince who
hesitated before jumping and
I remember those brave para-
troopers who leapt into space
without thinking. Then I
make my choice, yell


dows and the newspapers for
the printed articles.

Nealis gives hope

to business world
Editor:
My name is Linda D.
Gallegos. I'm writing in
regards to a very great God-
fearing man. This man is
Mark Nealis from Nealis
Plumbing. I would like to say
nothing but good things.
I called him up with a
major plumbing problem and
no money. My health is not
good, can't do much anymore
and can't work many hours as
before.
Anyhow, he sent one of his
employees to help me out and
told me I could pay as much ,
as I could when I could. Bless
his heart. It's hard nowadays
to get anyone to do anything,
especially when you don't
have money, but to trust you
with a bill and also being a
business on top of that, that is
very good. It doesn't happen
anymore.
Mr.' Nealis has put some
hope in the fact that there may
be some good, caring people
still left in this earth after all.
God bless you, Mr. Nealis,
and your family.

Working with

problem puppy

yields big reward

My first experience
with dog ownership was
a female Rottweiler
named "Impy" who at 8
weeks old, weighed more
than most toddlers.
Who would have
known that adorable face
with little puppy teeth
could actually eat right
through drywall and tear
doorjambs apart in less
time than you could run
to Publix for some milk?
To say that we were
unprepared for this little
homewrecker would be
an extreme understate-
ment. We thought owning
a dog would be easy, but
we were losing sleep,
furniture and mostly our
sanity.
Since leaving the
house to go to work was
not optional, we decided
that we had to either get
rid of the.dog or find a
way to restrain this psy-
chotic chewing demon
before she rendered us
homeless. There was no
instruction manual, so we
consulted our local vet
who, with a knowing
smirk on his face, recom-
mended that we get a
large pen for the dog and
give her plenty of toys
that she can't chew up
too easily (do they make
cement dog bones?).
Although she cried
pitifully at first, we did-
n't give in and bail her
out. When we were
home, we would give her
restricted areas to play
where.we could keep an
eye on her and stop her
from chewing on every-
thing (or leaving us pud-
dles and piles).
When we were out of
the house or sleeping,
"Impy" went into her
pen, where she felt safe
and secure. Within a few
days, she didn't whine
when put in the pen and
was chewing only her
toys (and a few fingers
and toes).
Because dogs don't
'normally like to soil the
area where they sleep,
she quickly learned to go
outside to "do her busi-
ness." The. solution
worked!
It was funny that we
would often find her
sleeping in her pen, even
though the door was open
and she could go any-
where. She knew that the
cage was her space and
she actually liked it.
She became our 110-
pound lap dog, despite
the reputation of
Rottweilers (it's not the
dog, it is how you raise
them). This beautiful,
gentle dog went on to be
a great pet that foiled a
burglary attempt on our
house and would act as
lifeguard when anyone
went in the pool.
Although she's in
doggy-heaven now, she
gave us 11 years of
enjoyment and it scares
me to think that we
almost gave her away
because of our ignorance.
Learning how to deal
with a puppy, particularly
one this size, made all
the difference.

'Grindhouse' provides, unique (and grisly) nostalgia


I've never seen a movie
quite like "Grindhouse."
The Robert Rodriguez and
Quentin Tarantino-produced
double feature is more than
just a film. It's an experience
- and an amazing one at that.
The film's name derives
from the nickname given to
the grimy, run-down theaters
that used to show exploitation
films in the 1970s. The genre
was full of some fascinating,
bloody and downright horri-
fying films -such as "Faster
Pussycat! Kill! Kill!," "Last
House on the Left," and "I
Spit on Your Grave.
Rodriguez and Tarantino,
who were longtime fans of the
long-forgotten genre, wanted
to bring grindhouse films
back and bring them back
they have. "Grindhouse" has
three separate parts: two full-
length movies and previews
of five other movies that don't
actually exist at least, not
yet.
The first film in the double
feature is "Planet Terror,"
directed by the talented
Rodriguez, who also did the
"Spy Kids" trilogy and "Sin
City." Although the film can
best be classified as an ultra-
violent zombie film, the sto-
ryline actually has surprising
depth (although unfortunately
there isn't much in the way of
character development).
The film focuses on go-go
dancer Cherry Darling (Rose
McGowan, who appears in
both films). Cherry is unhap-
py dancing, and after quitting
she runs into her old
boyfriend El Wray (Freddy
Rodriguez) at a barbecue
joint.
But while this is going on,
poison DC-2 gas has been let
loose, which has turned the
citizens of Austin, Texas, into
bloodthirsty zombies that feed
on human body parts. (Make
no mistake about it, this film
earns its R rating.)
Unfortunately for her,
Cherry g ts her leg bitten off
in an ,attack. But fortunately,
the quick-on-his-feet El Wray
gives her a machine gun to
take its place. The film then
follows a group of survivors
as they try to escape their

zombified town.
OK, so the plot sounds odd,
but in actuality the movie is
surprisingly interesting full
of quirky characters, loud
music, comically forced dia-
logue and quick camera
movements.
Tarantino's half of
"Grindhouse" is "Death
Proof," which tells the story
of Stuntman Mike (played to
maniacal perfection by Kurt
Russell). The title comes from
Stuntman Mike's car, which is
reinforced, or death proofed,
so that it can be used as a
stunt car in movies. But since
Mike is a psychotic killer, he
uses his almost-indestructable
car to kill girls. (As you can
tell, these films are not for the
faint of heart.)
Considering the violence
contained, in Tarantino's pre-
vious movies, "Death Proof"
is surprisingly dialogue-driv-
en, almost tame. In fact, the
majority of the film is focused
on the two different groups of
females that Mike is chasing.
But this is Tarantino after all,

Movie length: 3 hours, 11 minutes


and the movie does include
the most bloody, horrifically
graphic car crash scene that I
have ever witnessed on film.
"Death Proof" is exciting,
and it does feature a long,
thrilling car chase, but com-
pared to Rodriguez' fantastic
"Planet Terror," "Death
Proof" falls a little short.
But don't just go for the
two full-length movies. The
fake trailers, made by some
very talented young directors,
are very well done.
The best of the bunch is the
one for a hilariously dement-
ed slasher flick entitled
"Thanksgiving" made by
"Hostel" director Eli Roth -
which features some absolute-
ly shocking violence. It also
includes comically campy
lines such as "you'll make it
home for dinner ... in a body'
bag," and my personal
favorite: "This year, there will
be no leftovers."
The, makers of
"Grindhouse" went to great
lengths to make the films
authentic, and it works. The
films are scratchy, they
include missing reels in the
middle of the films, and they
have an authentic, 1970s-type
feel.
"Grindhouse" is enjoyable


because it was something dif-
ferent. Much different. I was
surprised by how much
"Planet Terror" was superior
to Tarantino's milder "Death
Proof," but that's more a com-
pliment towards Rodriguez as
it is a slam on Tarantino.
In the end, both films are
enjoyable, the trailers are per-
versely entertaining, and the
experience as a whole is
unique and fun. "Grindhouse"
makes for a great night at the
movies, complete with a dose
of grisly nostalgia. In a cine-
matic world full of pre-
dictable, boring, formulaic
films, "Grindhouse" is a
breath of fresh air.
It's too early to tell if the
two directors have inspired a
whole new era of grindhouse-
type movies. But if they do,
then the oftentimes-stagnant
world of Hollywood will be
better for it.

Sometimes we all
feel like, when we are con-
fronted with situations where
a loved one has died, or a
terminal disease is found,
that we must come up with
some magical grouping of
words to make the persons)
feel better. Yet, put in that
same situation yourself, can
you think of any words that
would really matter?
So the Ministry of
Presence is about us getting
out of our comfort zones and
being where people need us.
Sure we want and fully
expect God to comfort those
who hurt. Paul says that God
is certainly capable of such,
"Blessed be the God and
Father of our Lord Jesus
Christ, the Father of mercies
and God of all comfort."
Yet, God also works
through you and me to com-
fort those who need consol-
ing. Listen to what God did
for those who needed com-
fort, "Nevertheless God, who
comforts the downcast, com-
forted us by the coming of
Titus" (2 Corinthians 7:6).
Did God do the comforting?
Yes, but he used Titus to
accomplish his will.
One of the greatest ways to
evangelize the lost is what is


canlctu i -iendsUip
evangelism." It's
the process of mak-
ing friends with
people, reaching
mutual trust and
then when a bond
is made teaching
them about Jesus.
But one of the most
significant ways to
build friendships is
by being there for
people in their most
desperate hour. It's
being there when
they need to tell you


about their struggling mar-
riage, their financial crisis,
the bad news they received
from medical tests, the call
they got about the passing of
a loved one, the heartache
they feel over their rebellious
child or any of a thousand
hurts they may be feeling.
That's what the Ministry of
Presence is all about.
It is not knowing all the
answers, solving all the prob-
lems and mending every bro-
ken heart. It's about being
there and caring for someone
other than self. It's about
having compassion for your
fellow man. It's about doing
what you can to lighten the
burden of another.
In fact, it's simply being
what God called us to be ...
just like Jesus! Start your
Ministry of Presence this
week by just being there for
someone who needs you!

be a lie. So no one will be
immune to what will be dis-
cussed Sunday.

Open Door Baptist
Church
SEBRING In the contin-
uance of the study on the
church and its purpose.
The true and real influence
of a church does not consist in
numbers, or in social position
of its members, nor in the
stateliness of its buildings,
nor in the largeness of its con-
tributions, but in the presence
and power of the Holy Spirit.
The society of today will
never ask the second question
of Acts 2, "men and brethren,
what shall we do?" until peo-
ple are constrained to ask the
first question of Acts 2,
"What meaneth this?"

SEBRING The Lady Blue Streaks Varsity
softball team overcame an early deficit with
smart base running as they rallied. back and
defeated the Lake Wales Highlanders 8-5
Thursday night.
The Lady Blue Streaks walked out onto the


field Thursday night looking to add to
their already impressive season, which
has them finally getting attention in
the state rankings, but after the first
inning of play Sebring looked a little
shaky.
It was all Lake Wales in the top of
the first when Tiffani Upchurch hit an
RBI double to left center that brought
home Tabatha Martin.

Brittani Thomas would slam another double
into the outfield which brought home
Upchurch.
Red Simmons would keep the rally going as
she singled into left field putting Thomas in
scoring position. Thomas would later score on
a Sara Commerford single.


The Blue Streaks would have several hits of
their own in the first, but couldn't turn them
into runs leaving two girls on base.
Sebring came out in the second inning look-
ing for redemption but could only muster one
run as Hannah Shoop came in to score to make
the game 3-1 Lake Wales.
Kendall Carson got out of a jam when she
forced Brittany McKenzie to pop out to
ng right field with the bases loaded.
The Lady Streaks showed off their tal-
ent in the bottom of the third inning
rales when they went on the largest rally of
the night.
Sam Lower crushed an RBI triple into
right field, bringing home Priscilla
Adams who singled to left field.
Carson would then drive home Lower with a
single of her own.
Heather McIntyre, Shoop, and Chelsea
Davis would all come around to score for
Sebring but the rally wouldn't end there.
Jamie Herschwitz would double into right
field followed by a shot to centerfield by

end.

Jones the launched a fly ball to
right field that, while caught,
allowed Holloway to tag and score.
But just as the insurance run
seemed to put it out of reach with
Barrett on the mound, the Panthers
were soon tempting fate.
A little wildness put two runners
on via bases on balls and had the
tying run at first with one out.
"You just can't relax in a close
game like that," Falla said. "If you


keep walking runners, especially the
leadoff batters, they will come back
to haunt you."
But Barrett gutted it out, striking
out the next two hitters to escape her
own jam and earn the crucial win.
"We're in third in conference and
just one more win will have us in for
sure," Falla said. "We're getting
back to where we were a couple
weeks ago, playing solid, doing the
right things. Now we just need to get
on a bit of a roll and get all the pis-
tons firing."


High School Tennis


Blue Streak Netters fall in finale to Okeechobee


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING Their regular
season was bookended by
losses, but the Sebring boys
tennis team saw a lot of suc-
cess in between and head
coach Jack Holt is kind of
glad it happened this way.
"We had the wind knocked
out of our sails a little bit,"
Holt said. "But with Districts
next week, we'll be working
with them in double sessions
this weekend."
After starting the season 0-
2, the Blue Streaks ran off 11
wins in a row, but fell 5-2 to
Okeechobee in their season
finale Thursday at the Sebring
Country Club.
"They were just a better
'team than us," Holt said. "But
,we did have three split sets
and this could be a good thing
'for us."
Those split sets came from
David Lee, at No. 1 singles,
Chris Pinson at No. 2 singles
and Jake Broen at No. 3 sin-
gles.


Broen was the lone Sebring
victor of those matches, win-
ning 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 over Elj
Cabansay, while Mike Reed,
at No. 5 singles won his
match in a 6-1, 6-1, straight-
set win.
Dan Ritter fell in straight
sets to Oke.echobee's Logan
Perry.
Both doubles teams fell'as
well, with Lee and Ritter
dropping an 8-2 match and
Reed and Broen coming up
short in the 8-4 score.
"We had won eleven in a
row, and maybe the guys were
feeling a bit invincible," Holt
said. "This just shows them
that they will need to work
hard to do well in the District
tournament next week. We'll
be facing a bunch of teams we
haven't seen yet, so we'll
need to be ready and that
much sharper."
The Streaks finish the regu-
lar season at 11-3 and will be
hosting the District tourna-
ment which begins Monday at
SFCC.

AND ANOTHER THING ...

Sign o'


the times

The news that Adam
"Pacman" Jones and Chris
Henry were suspended by the
NFL was received well by
many, as was the much
tougher seeming policies the
league now has in place for
players displaying consistent
abhorrent and criminal
behavior.
It is yet another step in the
right direction among our
professional sports leagues
that for too long seemed to
use their "private entity" sta-
tus to protect their players.
How often did we hear of
players that got in trouble in
the real world, and yet were
continually allowed to keep
plying their trade on the
fields.
Perhaps it was just how
times were we were so lost
as a society in hero worship,
that we wanted "our guys" to
keep playing.
Seeing the benefit toward
success, both on the field
and at the ticket gate, the
management of the clubs and
the leagues consistently
either turned a blind eye or
swept it under the rug.
How many times was left-
handed pitcher Steve Howe,
continually brought up on
drug possession charges,
given chances to keep his job
- eight, nine?
Darryl Strawberry, Dwight
Gooden and Tim Raines
(who once said he slid head
first when he stole bases so
as not to break the vial of
cocaine in his back pocket)
are other names that came up
with drug issues, and who
were allowed time and again
to keep playing ball.
Baseball is still lagging
behind in its admonishing of
its players, as the fact that
the steroid scandal is still
ever-present will attest.
But there seemed to be a
societal shift after the infa-
mous brawl at the Palace of
Auburn Hills when Ron
Artest and Stephen Jackson
went into the stands and tan-
gled with fans.
NBA commissioner David
Stern took a hard line and

HISTORY LESSON


5 YEARS AGO
April 12, 2002: In front of a large Alumni Night crowd at Head Field, the Sebring baseball team were
rude guests, taking an 8-2 win from Avon Park. Tied 2-2 after four, the Streaks added a run in the fifth
and the sixth before adding four in the seventh on a 400-foot double by Will Pyle
20 YEARS AGO
April 13, 1987: Paul Gay banged out four hits, with Tommy Lovett and Bryan Byers smacking three
each, as SFCC demolished the visiting Valencia Matadors, 16-0. Gay's big hit was a grand slam in a six-
run Panther seventh inning. Jac Gelb pitched five innings of two-hit ball for the win, while Harold Hitt
tossed the final four innings of the win.

But singles No.'s 2 through

revenge, teaming up with

SIGN
Continued from 1D
has been doing so ever since,
trying to clean up both the
league, as well as the image
of the league.
In kind, the NFL, seems to
have grown tired of its' Tank
Johnsons', Chris Henrys' and
Pacmans' continually step-
ping on the wrong side of the,
law and giving the league a
more notorious image.
I think that, post-9/11,
American society has just
grown tired of, and won't
stand for, seedy characters.
We face enough threats
from around the world, have
enough thugs among our
society already we don't
need or want to watch them
on television or pay a small
fortune to go see them play.
Charles Barkley famously
said he is not a role model -
well, there are plenty of oth-
ers who could make that
claim as well.
Fortunately, the leagues
are starting to weed them
out.
