Special help for a special kid

SGolf course plans fundraiser for 15-year-old recovering from brain tumor


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
Marcos Olivh, 15, of Avon Park, talks about undergo-
ing brain surgery for a brain tumor. His mother's
employer Sebring Lakeside Golf Resort will be host-
ing a fundraiser for him April 28 to help offset med-
ical costs.


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.comrn
SEBRING Marcos Oliva was an ordi-
nary 15-year-old who was enjoying a lazy
summer.
But after being diagnosed with a brain
tumor last July, his life changed. Although
the tumor was removed, weekly trips to St.
Petersburg for chemotherapy treatments are
ongoing.
And now the owners of Sebring Lakeside
Golf Resort where Martha Huaman,
Marcos' mother, works are trying to
help. On Saturday, April 28, the course will


donate all of its proceeds earned that day to
Marcos and his family.
Maria Baker, co-owner of Sebring
Lakeside Golf Resort, said they decided to
get involved because Marcos has been an
inspiration to them.
"His mother works for us and we've got-
ten to know him very well," Baker said.
"We .want to do something to help. We feel
so helpless in all of this."

Headaches lead to diagnosis
Marcos started having headaches and
dizziness last summer, and he had trouble


getting his balance when he stood up. After
about three weeks of the severe headaches,
he was referred to All Children's Hospital
in St. Petersburg. While there he underwent
an MRI, which showed a medulloblastoma,
a type of tumor, in the base of his brain.
The doctors told Marcos that if they did-
n't immediately perform a risky operation
to remove the tumor, he could die. Marcos'
mother was also told that the surgery could
be fatal if it failed. Even if it succeeded, he
could suffer paralysis or loss of vision.

Water Woes *

SWFWMD says Sun 'N Lake out of

compliance with water use permit
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Southwest Florida Water Management District said Sun 'N
Lake Sebring has been overpumping, violating its permit.
In addition, the water management district said Sun 'N Lake hasn't
submitted required reports.
"Because it is the district's policy to not fund projects for utilli-
ties that are out of compliance, cooperative funding is not rec- -
ommended," Anthony Andrade, of the water management dis-
trict, said in the Peace River Basin Board's Information and
Budget Notebook released April 6.
"- Sun 'N Lake asked for assistance in funding an $85,000
reuse feasibility study only, which Andrade recommended
against.


'They've been
overpumping
since 1999,
during the last
drought we
were in.'
ROBYN HANKE
SWFWMD


"They've been overpumping
since 1999, during the last drought
we were in," said Robyn Hanke,
media relations officer for
SWFWMD.
The permit violation went unde-
tected, she said, because her
agency erred when entering
monthly pumping data into its
computers.
The district found the mistake
about six months ago, when
Sun 'N Lake applied to renew
its water use pernii.
"We've been working with
them to get them into compli-"


ance," Hanke said.
The water management district recommended a
water-conserving rate structure and public education -
the former a consumption-based tool to decrease
demand by incrementally increasing rates.
"People using the most water will pay the most for
it," Hanke said.
But Sun 'N Lake reports to a utilities commission
that limits how much profit it can make, which has
been an obstacle.
Since 2003, Sun 'N Lake has failed provide popu-
lation data as required by its permit, Hanke& said.

Woodlawn bookkeeper
named school-related
employee of the year
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING When she
arrived at Woodlawn
Elementary Wednesday
morning, Becky Travers
found her office a mess.
Messy with over 100
helium balloons, cards anid
decorations, that is.
The day was just begin-
ning for Florida's 2007
school-related employee of
the year.
"Every class came by. I
got hugs and they sang
songs and gave me more
cards; it was really nice,"
Travers said. .
Travers started down this
path by being named
Woodlawn's employee of
.the year.
Later at the Summit
Awards, held April 2,
Travers was named the
Highlands County school
related employee of the
year, to represent the county
statewide.
Last Tuesday, Woodlawn
Elementary Principal Kaye
Bowers received a call from
the commissioner's office
of the Department of
Education.
The call was to notify her


that Travers, who has spent
the last 20 years working as
the school's bookkeeper,
was one of five finalists in
the state.
Then Monday Travers
and her husband, Dave,
headed to Tallahassee with
,Bowers and Superintendent
Wally Cox to attend
Tuesday's State Board of
Education meeting.
After a continental break-
fast where several board
members came and met
with finalists, the meeting
started at 9 a.m. with the
announcement of Florida's
overalls school-related
employee of the year.
"The commissioner
announced the four finalists
and then' they announced
me," Travers said. "I was
extremely happy, proud and
surprised of course."
At the ceremony, Travers
was presented with an over-
sized check for $1,000 to
thank her for her contribu-
tions to the Florida School
system.
Bowers couldn't say
enough about her exempla-
ry bookkeeper.
"She found out how to
work it out so classrooms
could have presentation sta-
tions," she said. "A three-
year plan became a two

Harder Hall Trustee: 'We believe it can be sold'


Auction planned for July
By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING Bankruptcy Trustee
Kenneth Welt is confident that a sale of
Harder Hall could happen by the end of
summer.
"We believe it can be sold," Welt said
of the historic hotel at Tuesday's city
council meeting.
Welt, who was appointed by the
Bankruptcy Court earlier this year, said
the current plan is to sell the property via
auction sometime in July, with the sale


closing at the end of the month. He said
the auction sale was a fair compromise
between the city and the rest of the cred-
itors and should result in the complete
payment of creditors.
"We hope to, pay everyone 100 per-
cent," Welt said. "It's the best of both
worlds. It's a creative way to give credi-
tors what they're owed."
The city could still foreclose on the
property and recoup its debt if the sale
doesn't generate enough money, Welt
said, and added that under foreclosure,
the city would sell the property anyway.
At Welt's request, the city council


authorized $23,000 to cover insurance,
utilities, around-the-clock security and
on-site maintenance. Of that total, a $6
million insurance policy written by
Lloyd's of London will cost $5,000 a
month, 24-hour security (which is a
requirement of getting insurance cover-
age) will cost $13,000 a month, and util-
ities including water, sewer and elec-
tric will cost $2,000 a month. Welt also
asked for $2,000 for on-site manage-
ment.
Potential investor Jay Landesman had
agreed to cover costs for security, utili-

Wing-walking specialist

Pearce may miss Sun 'n Fun


o I


Fun air show has grown into
the second-largest such event
in the United States.
For better than three
decades, Pearce has made a
living staging wing-walking
demonstrations at air shows
across the United States and
even into some of the islands
of the Caribbeans. In the sum-
mer, Pearce flies out of
Cleveland and ranges up and
down the Atlantic Seaboard
over to about the Mountain
Time Zone.
Generally, he's booked in
as part of an air show or other
event.
"Predominantly, it's air
shows at airports," he said.
If he doesn't make it, it
won't be the first time. Pearce
said his schedule sometimes
had seen him as far away as
Texas while the Sun 'N Fun
event was going on in Polk
County.
Over the course of the
years, Pearce has had as many
as 35 different daredevil
women who have served as
his wing-walkers. Currently
there are two Jenny
Forsythe and Nicole
Rodriguez. Forsythe, the sen-

CRA Board thinking big in AP

Taste of the Mall, music at bandstand just some ideas


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley @newssun.comrn
AVON PARK Ironically,
just as longtime Main Street
Community Redevelopment
Agency (now Advisory
Board) chairman David
Cornell stepped down, the
board itself began stepping up
its pace.
For example, at its last reg-
ular meeting three members
had specific suggestions for
action, each very different,
John Parry, of Reed's Motel
on U. S. 27, has his eye on the
Brickell Building. Directly
opposite the Jacaranda Hotel,
the Brickell has graceful lines
and distinctive bay windows,
but has fallen on hard times.
Parry wants the CRA to
join with the city and buy the
building once it enters fore-
closure.
By investing enough to
bring it up to code, the city
could create and lease stores
on the street level and offices
or apartments upstairs, he
said. The rents from the prop-
erty should make it self-suffi-
cient.
Even more important, Parry


added, an investment of that
kind can have a domino
effect: once one business
cleans up, others soon follow
suit.
"This town has such terrific
potential,'" he said. All that is
needed is to prime the pump,
which a project of this kind
will help make happen.
Ed Baldridge, of the Battle
Zone on Main Street, pro-
posed an idea he saw work
well in Kansas the creation
of a collateral pool to help
individuals secure bank loans
at a reduced interest rate. The
loans would be restricted to
individuals working or living
in the Main Street CRA area
and for projects involving the
repair or upgrade of build-
ings.
The main advantage is that
these loans would make it
possible for property owners
to tackle more expensive proj-
ects than facade grants can
typically cover.
It is also a way to protect
CRA funds that haven't been
assigned a purpose and are
subject to return to the city for


general distribution at the end
of the year.
Unlike facade grants,
which don't have to be
returned, these would be full-
fledged loans administered by
a participating bank. Once the
loan is repaid, the CRA
money used as collateral
could be reassigned to some-
one else. That way, Baldridge
said, the money could be used
over and over again for years
and could always be shifted to
another use if another need
arose.
Melody Coniglio, of
Elegant Bride and Formal
Wear in the Jacaranda
Building, had an entirely dif-
ferent idea.
"As a CRA member, I think
it's a part of our responsibili-
ty to be a booster for busi-
nesses in our area," she said,
adding that she wants to draw
more people downtown by
having regular events.
For example, Coniglio
would like to see live music
concerts from the bandstand
once a month, noting that
there are all kinds of bands,


Coniglio Parry

choirs and solo acts in
Highlands County who would
be interested.
"This is a relatively simple
idea, not a huge undertaking,"
she said, although other ideas
are much more ambitious.
Twice a year, she'd like to
see a kids' activity day, when
sport leagues, youth groups
and clubs and businesses that
cater to children like judo,
dance and cheerleading stu-
dios set up tents and do
demonstrations, helping par-
ents learn about them.
Other ideas are more
geared to adults including a
Taste of the Mall highlighting
local restaurants and caterers,
a farmer's market selling
fruits and vegetables, a clas-
sic car cruise and a cus-
tomized golf cart competition
with decorations and judges
and prizes.
Coniglio, who was named
promotions coordinator at the
meeting, said interested indi-
viduals to contact her at 452-
5070.


Correction

The Highlands County comprehensive plan and evaluation
report meetings announced by the county and reported in the
News-Sun on Wednesday have been postponed until the coun-
ty commissioners reschedule the public hearings.

News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK As the
visitors see the sights and
watch the performances at the
33rd annual Sun 'N Fun Fly-
In this week in Lakeland, one
of the pioneers of the event
may not make it this time.
"We're scheduled to fly
both Sunday and Monday, but
it doesn't look extremely
promising at the moment,"
said Avon Park's Walt Pearce
as he applied another layer of
dope to the wing of his 1939
Stearman K4ydet biplane.
Pearce is well known for
his stunt flying and more par-
ticularly wing-walking
demonstrations.
It was Pearce and his then-
wife Sandi who staged a
wing-walking demonstration
in 1975 when the fly-in was
simply a congregation of
antique aircraft buffs. She sat
on the wing of the Stearman
and rode a short hop from
Mullberry to the
Lakeland Linder '}
Airport where the
wing-walker sched
became the first fly
"performance" of
the event, which Sund
drew just short of Monda
2,000 onlookers.
"It actually does
began as a Florida
Antique Aircraft extre
Association gather- promi
ing. Then the
Lakeland aviation the m.
people got together
and made a fly-in WALT
out of it," he said.
"It was a hodgepodge of cen-
tral Florida aviation."
Since that time, the Sun 'N

ior wing-walker, is stationed
in Cleveland, while
Rodriguez does the southern
shows.
In past- years, Both'
Rodriguez-and Forsythe have
walked the wings together -
a throwback to some of the
earliest days of barnstorming.
"Back in the 1920s and 30s,
they had two and three wing-
walkers around but it went
away for many years," he
said.
There have been a few
instances over the years, but it
was in 1989 that Pearce
brought back the two-at-a-
timers under the name "The
Wildcats" with his daughter
Shondel and Larraine.
Pearce has been flying the
Stearman for nearly four
decades and to date there
have been no injuries with
any of his wing-walkers.
"I haven't even scratched
one of their fingers," he said.
The closest call was when
one of the girls put
Ve're her foot through
tuled to the wing.
ruled to "She stepped
both off the hard area
and put her foot
ay and right between the
a but it ribs. It was just
like in 'The Great

't look Waldo Pepper,'"
emely he said.
Pearce attrib-
ising at uted the safety
oment.' record to a strin-
omeJnt. gent training and
retraining regi-
PEARCE men, which might
be what causes
him to miss Sun 'N Fun this
year.
Repairs actually started in
February. He said the fabric
covering over the wing had
been on there for 25 years and
it was time to take and the
cover off and look at the
structure underneath to make
certain everything still is OK.
"It's just routine mrainte-
nance," he said.
The fabric over the wing is
linen and Pearce said the
repairs were very weather
sensitive, inasmuch as once
the adhesive is applied, it has
to dry and shrink before it can
be painted.
"The 'dope' is really cellu-
lose and -it is very tempera-
mental in the drying process,"
he said. "They call it 'dope'
because it made people dopey
in the early days when it had
different chemicals in it."
He also took the time to fix
the smoke system on the
antique aircraft.
Pearce said if the plane is
not completed in time for
retraining sessions for wing-
walker Nicole Rodriguez,
he'll scrap this year's per-
formance and get ready for
his summertime swing into
the Northeast and the
Midwest.

CITATIONS
Continued from #
the water was on a timer,"
Avon Park code enforcement
Capt. Donald Simmons said
Thursday. "It just needed to
be changed. Or, they weren't
aware of what the times and
days are."
The restrictions apply to
residential and business lawn
watering, includes provisions
for golf course and agricul-
tural operations and recom-
mends conservation measures
for local governments and
utilities.
"It's important because the
rain we've had hasn't
changed anything," Simmons
said.
Repeat violations are rare.
Simmons and Highlands
County code enforcement
clerk Joe Willis said they've
issued no citations.
Lake Placid's code
enforcement officer was
unavailable Thursday due to
training.
Explained Willis, the
restrictions are driven by the
water management districts
with jurisdiction here -
Southwest Florida WMD and
South Florida WMD.
The county adopts and
enforces the more severe
restrictions of the two.
"That's because you may
live on one side of the street
and be in the Southwest
Florida Water Management
district and somebody else
lives across the street the
street in the South Florida
Water Management District,"
Willis said, noting that differ-
ing restrictions bring conflict.
"That's going to cause prob-
lems for the neighbors, the
municipalities and the coun-
ty."
The county's code enforce-
ment office which has
four officers is limited to
reacting to watering viola-
tions when concerned citi-
zens make a report, Willis
said. In Avon Park,

said he was told the appropriate reports
have been submitted and the district was
no longer out of compliance.
Sun 'N Lake assistant engineer
Clinton "Gator" Howerton, of Polston
Engineering since 1994, said the over-
pumping and lack of reporting stemmed
from staff turnover and misunderstand-
ings of what is required of Sun 'N Lake.
Monthly water use records were sub-
mitted, but in 2004 and 2005 the district
failed to submit annual population and
per capital usage reports, which include
consumption by fire fighting efforts and
back-flowing (cleaning) of water lines.
Howerton said he submitted last year's

Luckily, the surgery went
well, and the doctors were
able to remove the entire
tumor, which turned out to be
benign. The doctors told
Marcos that the tumor was
slightly larger than half of a
fist, and they said they don't
know what caused it.
Marcos vividly remembers
what he felt like when he
woke up.
"I was thirsty, like I'd been
in the desert for days,"
Marcos said. He couldn't
drink anything after the sur-
gery, so his only option was to
chew ice cubes. His neck felt
so heavy that he could barely
lift it.

A long recovery
Because the tumor was
located in the area of the brain
that affects balance, Marcos
had to undergo physical thera-
py to determine if the opera-
tion had affected his ability to
walk. He also had to perform
neck exercises to keep from
stiffening up.
Marcos said his family
couldn't afford a long hospital
stay. "I just prayed to God to
recover quickly," he said. So
far, his prayers have been
answered and the recovery
has been going well, and there
are no side effects from the
surgery.
But Marcos' road to recov-

complaints, but also address-
es violations if they spot
them first.
Sebring Police Cmdr.
Steve Carr said his officers
are mostly proactive in
knocking on a door to let a
resident know they're violat-
ing the restriction. Avon
Park's efforts are combined
- responding to complaints
and addressing violations
when they notice them.
Willis receives a weekly
letter from a Golf Hammock
resident listing 60-70 alleged
violators. In addition, he
receives two or three call-in
complaints daily.
Water violations are treat-
ed as other code violations
warning letters are sent and
followed up with unan-
nounced visits.
"You don't have a viola-
tion at this point," Willis
said, explaining the clock
begins ticking if an officer
witnesses continued illegal
watering and violators have
10 days to correct the prob-
lem.
After that period, if the
watering continues, a Class I
civil citation is issued with a
$50 fine, which increase
with subsequent violations -
$100, $250 and $500.
While most people apolo- -
getically respond to the coun-
ty's warning letters they
didn't know about the restric-
tions some angrily cite
their rights or point out that
they're on well water.
Willis said the restrictions
apply to everybody, regard-
less of their water source.
"It all comes from the
aquifer," he said.
Hand watering or micro-
irrigation of non-lawn land-
scaping is allowed, and
there's an exception for
newly planted material such
as sod.

water of a house isn't

ties and insurance, but he
stopped paying last month. In
anticipation of that, the City
Council approved $15,000 a
month to cover the' expenses.
The amount was upped to
$23,000 a month to cover the
increased costs.
The funding will come
from the city's contingency
fund, and will be paid back
upon sale of the property.
The council previously
authorized $30,000 to cover
marketing costs. Welt pre-
sented an advertising propos-
al which broke down how the
property would be advertised.
According to the proposal,
advertisements of Harder Hall
will be run in the Wall Street
Journal', the St. Petersburg
Times and the News-Sun. Welt
also mentioned running
advertisements in newspapers
in the Miami, Jacksonville
and Orlando areas, as well as
utilizing online ad buys and
mailing lists.
"I'm sure we'll get many,
many people once we market
on a national and internation-
al level," Welt said, adding
that many buyers think it is
"advantageous" to buy a
property out of bankruptcy.
Welt said he had already
seen interest in the property
from potential buyers, and
added the Wall Street Journal
in particular, had been "very
.successful" in marketing
properties similar to Harder
Hall. At an April 4 status
hearing in the Joran bankrupt-
cy case, Welt said he was

he said.
"We're not in trouble," he said. "For
right now."
The district's preferred course of
action is to bring Sun 'N Lake into com-
pliance, Hanke said, noting that the situ-
ation is being investigated to determine
if the legal action is warranted.
Howerton said "honest mistakes" were
made by both parties.
He returned Thursday evening from a
meeting with the Department of
Environmental Protection about permit-
ting a reuse facility for Sun 'N Lake,
which he said would facilitate SWFMD's
renewal of the water use permit current-

ery is not yet complete. He
has undergone radiation and
chemotherapy treatments ever
since the surgery, to make
sure the tumor doesn't return.
He makes a trip to St.
Petersburg every Friday for
chemotherapy treatment, a
process that will continue
over the next two months.
The first chemotherapy.
treatment was difficult,
Marcos said, but it has gotten
a little easier.
"I had a hard time the first
time," he said. "It felt like
falling from a high place."
Marcos has struggled with
a loss of appetite, a common
side effect of chemotherapy
treatment, but he said he is
eating better.

'We're just so impressed'
Marcos moved to the
United States from Peru in
2004 to be with his mother. In
the past three years, not only
has he learned how to speak
and understand English, but
he has also managed to
become a straight-A student at
Avon Park Middle School.
Despite the weekly chemo
treatments, he is maintaining
that A average in high school
as well. He has been recog-
nized several times by his
teachers as an outstanding
student and person, and he has
received a bevy of awards.
Marcos said people have
been very supportive of him
throughout his ordeal, and a
friend even shaved his head in

Sun 'N Lake is negotiating to purchase ,
'Avon Park's reuse water.
"Right now, we're proceeding as if
we're on our own," Howerton said,
explaining that with too many people
involved, dealing with Avon Park takes
too long.
Having reuse water at its disposal, pri-
marily for golf course upkeep, would
help them comply with the permit's lim-
itations, he said.
Population increases and a growing
hospital within its, borders has con-
tributed to Sun 'N Lake's water con-
sumption, explained Howerton.
Hanke, however; provided conflicting
information that Florida Hospital

tribute.
But the intensive medical
treatment has come at a great
monetary cost to Marcos and
his family. From the medical
treatment itself, to paying for
gas for the weekly trips to St.
Petersburg, the costs have
added up.
Baker and her husband
Mark decided to do what they
could to help Marcos out.
"We have the golf course,"
she said. "Why can't we do


something for him? He's just
a great young man. "
Baker said they didn't think
of using the course to raise
money for Oliva until now,
and they're trying to work
quickly to get the word out.
"We're kind of rushing before
too many people go north,"
she said.

Council President John

down cycle in the real estate

buyers.
Welt acknowledged that
buyers have been "con-
cerned" about obtaining
financing, but said the proper-

potential market difficulties.
"We'll give it a very good
shot," he said, adding that a
minimum of $7 million would
be necessary to finish the
hotel project. "If I'm wrong,
the city will get the property
back."
Judge Laurel Isicoff of the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court must
approve the plans, but Welt

who is representing the city in

from the court. Welt. said he

bookkeeper and overall
school employee.
"As a bookkeeper, her
thoughts are still, 'What are
the children's needs?'"
Bowers said. "She is not in
the thought that bookkeeping
is her job and her only job.
She will be the teacher ... or
whatever the role is depend-
ing on what a child needs.
"Without a thought, if it
needs to get done, she does
it."

The father of Highlands County


Etheredge's work led to founding of county 86 years ago today


Friday, April 20, 2007 7A

Making it easy to look it up


By ELIZABETH WALKER
News-Sun correspondent
In 1921, the town of Sebring was just
a little place that was growing rapidly.
But it was about to become the center of
a new county thanks to the work of Dr.
Ezekiel Joseph Etheredge, the first den-
tist in the Sebring area.
Etheredge, along with his supporters
and other early settlers, were tired of
having to struggle over sandy roadways
to Arcadia to transact county business.
His platform, based on the division of
DeSoto County, won him a seat in the
Florida State House of representatives.
Etheredge followed through on his
promise and introduced and supported
the bill that would give birth to quadru-
plets namely Highlands, Hardee,
Glades and Charlotte counties.
So, at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, April 20,
1921, Highlands County was born. After
much wrangling and discussion, Sebring
was selected to become the county seat
and the stately court house was soon
built on South Commerce Street in'
downtown Sebring.
After serving as representative,
Etheredge was elected to the Senate, an
office he held from 1923 until 1927 when
he retired from politics.
Etheredge, born August 28, 1871 in
Edgefield County, S.C., was one of the
10" children of Tyre and Amelia Matilda
Etheredge. Tyre, a Confederate veteran,
was one of 11 children born to Joseph
Etheredge of South.Carolina.
E.J. Etheredge, known as Zeke, attend-
ed public and private schools in
Leesville, S.C., as well as two years in
Vanderbilt University. He graduated
from the University of Maryland in 1896,

Dr. E. J. Etheredge served in both the
South Carolina Senate and Florida
Senate. He Introduced and supported
the bill in the legislature to divide
DeSoto County into five counties, thus
creating Highlands, Hardee, Glades and
Charlotte counties and greatly diminish-
ing the size of DeSoto.

earning a degree in dental surgery and
won the gold medal for excellence in
bridgework.
He began practicing dentistry in
Leesville and a few years later he was
elected president of the South Carolina


Dental Association.
He served two terms in the South
Carolina legislature and in November
1896, he married Mary Bell Martin of
New Brookland, S.C. Her father, William
Noah Martin, was also a Confederate sol-
dier.
Etheredge moved with his family to
the Sebring area in 1913. Though the site
selected for his home near Little Red
Water was several miles from the heart of
the developing town of Sebring, he main-
tained his office here. This meant fight-
ing sandy trails to serve his patrons daily.
In 1916, he founded the town of
Desoto City six miles south of Sebring in
the hilly section of the ridge and served
as its mayor for several years.
As a Senator, he served on the finance,
taxation, judiciary, temperance, highway
and drainage committees, sponsoring
many of the temperance measures enact-
ed at the time. He created the Istokpoga
sub-drainage district and fought for
appropriations for the Okeechobee
drainage district. He led the committee
of local delegates to extend State Road 8
through DeSoto City into Sebring and
beyond.
Members of his family were also
deeply involved in the operations of
Desoto City and Sebring. His brothers
and sister served as postmasters in
DeSoto City from 1916 to 1930.
After his retirement from politics.
Etheredge became a successful horticul-
turist and was active in behalf of legisla-
tion important to the citrus industry. He
died in a local hospital Sept. 23, 1938.
Etheredge and several members of his
family are buried in Pincrest Cemetery in
Sebring.

Banking on future needs


County hoping to establish central A


food bank to stock local food pantries


By CHRISTOPHER TOUGHLY
christopher tuffley @newssun.com
SEBRING People who are in
the business of helping people say
Highlands County has been blessed
with many food pantries, most of
them faith-based.
Food pantries are places to which
individuals and families can turn
when they are hungry. Providing the
basics for a well-balanced diet, these
are not soup kitchens, but miniature
grocery stores where food items are
distributed free of charge.
But the pantries themselves some-
times have difficulty locating com-
modities and grocery items, or the
funds to purchase them.
Which is why Mary Foy's office
was crowded with people last week.
Foy is the assistant director of
human services for Highlands
County. Her guests included Debbie
Mercure of St. Vincent de Paul,
Capt. Mary Holmes of the Salvation
Army and William Stephenson,
director of the Church Service
Center.
Also there were Francis and Mary
Van Hooreweghe, new residents to
Highlands County who have arrived
with a mission in fact, the same
mission which had brought the
group together: creating a food bank
to serve all those pantries.
The issue is hunger, they said, and
the growing number, of county resi-
dents who don't know where their
next meal is coming from.


Slightly. more than -.
a third had to chose


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
Gail Prichard collects information for a homeless survey from Terri
Rametta, a food pantry client in front of The Station, which houses the
food pantry run by the Church Service Center. The Station is only of
many faith-based food pantries. Qualifying clients are given staples once a
month to help them maintain a healthy, balanced diet.


According to America's -Second
Harvest, the nation's food bank net-
work and its largest charitable
hunger-relief organization, about 25
million people nationally were
served by local food pantries in
2005.


According to the organization, 65
percent of participating food
pantries reported increasing num-
bers of needy, with slightly more
than 36 percent of all people served
being children under the age of 18
and 10 percent being elderly.


between buying food or paying'
the rent, and almost a third had to
chose between food and medica-
tions.
According to those present at the
meeting, Highlands County's popu-
lation breaks down in a similar fash-
ion, although the proportion of eld-
erly is probably larger because of the
area's demographics.
Which is why, Van Hooreweghe
said, the time has come to take the
next step and establish a central food
bank from which the pantries can fill
their shelves.
"This will be a huge undertaking,"
he said.
"We need to establish a non-profit
entity and we need to find a central
warehouse and refrigerated storage."
He added that seed money is nec-
essary, too.
America's Second Harvest, which
has a center in Tampa, is eager to
hook up with both Highlands and
Hardee counties to provide a steady
source of food and grocery items.
These would be provided to the
pantries at the cost of 18 cents a
pound.
It is the pantry that would distrib-


ute the food to the client.
Currently, trips will have to be
made to Tampa to pick the food, but
Second Harvest hopes to begin a
delivery service soon.
But the main point is that with a
bank, pantries from all over the two
counties could come to a central
location in Sebring, saving them
time, gas and money.
Volunteers are needed, first to get
the project off of the ground, and
later to run it. No tax dollars are
involved Foy said,, it will be
financed by grants and donations.
Van Hooreweghe wants to put a
working board together."We're look-'
ing for people willing to roll up their
sleeves and get busy," he said.
He also hopes someone might
have warehouse space they'd be
willing to donate or a refrigerated
semi for storing perishables.
For more information or to make a
donation call Francis Van
Hooreweghe at 385-8270, or Bill
Stephenson at the Church Service
Center (98 Rowe St. in Avon Park) at
452-6464.

A lawful home invasion


The story you are about to
read is true. Only the names
and identities have been omit-
ted to protect the innocent (or
my own backside in this
instance). It happened on the
night of Dec. 27, 2006. It was
coldest night of the year, the
moon and stars barely visible
in the silent black sky.
I had just returned from
work, checked on my youn-
gin's, taken a bath, put on my
night shirt, lit my candle, and
crawled into bed. It was time
for my nightly Seinfeld rerun.
My daughters and their
friends were walking out front
and my eldest son was watch-
ing a movie in the living
room. Not even 10 minutes
after I got into bed, the kids
from outside came to inform
me they had jumped into the
lake fully clothed.
Teenagers (though they know
everything), are often a bit
deficient in the arena of com-
mon sense.


Refusing to allow
the kids dripping
trough my house, I
instructed my girls to
get towels for their
friends, start the wet
clothes in the wash-
ing machine and have
their friends get on
their cell phones and
call for rides.
This commotion
was beginning to get
on my nerves, inter-

rupting my plans to relax. The
scented candle burning on my
night table, bearing a label
claiming to relieve stress, was
apparently a case of false
advertising.
Between the noise of my
own TV, the sounds of the
movie blaring from the other
room, the girls running
around slamming doors,
bustling about the house look-
ing for towels and dry clothes
and their friends laughing and
carrying on outside, I think


the only scent that
may have been able
to relieve my stress
would be something
called cyanide.
Just when I figured
things were about to
settle down, I heard
one of the kids from
outside saying,
"Hurry up! Get in the
house! Somebody's
going to be arrested!"
Thinking this was


just more teenage nonsense, I
gritted my teeth and prayed
rides would soon be arriving.
Next, however, I heard a
gruff voice demanding,
"What's going on here?"
My dog, a force to be reck-
oned with, began freaking
out, pacing around my room
wanting more than ever to
find out what was going on
for himself I could see that
he was in "protect-my-peo-
ple" mode.
Going to investigate, and


hard-pressed to keep my dog
from taking matters into his
own jaws, I suffered an injury
to my foot nothing serious,
but painful enough to raise
my rapidly increasing blood
pressure a few more notches.
Securing the beast behind
my bedroom door, I headed to
the front of the house.
There were two police offi-
cers on my porch and several
cop cars, including a K-9 unit,
in my front lawn, as well as a
fire truck and an ambulance.
Anxiety mounting, I asked
the obvious question, "What's
going on?"
"That's what we want to
know," demanded an angry
officer.
"I mean, what are you all
doing here?" I clarified.
"That's what I want to
know," he repeated.
I tried again, "I mean, why
are you guys here at my
house?"

A possible substitute


for blood transfusions?


We know that
humans can only
use blood from
another human who
has the same blood
type. We' also know
that science hasn't
yet developed a
synthetic blood sub-
stitute, so when an
individual needs. a

they can't just take a pill or
infuse a bag of fluid that will
do the same thing as a blood
transfusion.
There is an interesting
experiment reported in the
Los Angeles Times about
Danish researchers who fig-
ured out an inexpensive and
efficient way to convert types
A, B, and AB blood into type
0, the universal donor blood
that can be given to anyone.
The research team isolated
bacterial enzymes that safely
remove from red blood cells
the sugar molecules that pro-'
voke an immune reaction in
the recipient. Apparently,
there have been previous tests
done where type B blood was
made into type 0, but it was a
very costly process.
"Mismatching of blood
causes at least half of transfu-
sion-related deaths. And the
need for precisely matched
blood drives the costly and
inefficient process of shut-
tling blood units between
regional blood banks and hos-
pitals to match daily require-
ments. Those issues could be
largely resolved if there were
a universally transfusible
blood supply," said Doug
Clibourn, chief executive of


ZymeQuest in
Beverly, Mass.,
which is developing
the new technology.
The problem
involves sugar mol-
ecules on the sur-
face of red blood
cells. Type A blood
has one set of sug-
ars, and type B has
another, while type 0


has none. People with type A
blood have antibodies against
the type B sugars and people
with type B have antibodies
against type A. If a person
receives mismatched blood,
the antibodies attack red
blood cells, producing a
potentially fatal breakdown of
red cells.
In the 1980s, the late Jack
Goldstein of the New York
Blood Center isolated an
enzyme from coffee beans
that could convert type B to
type 0. Clinical trials of
enzyme produced blood
showed it behaved no differ-
ently than normal blood in
hospital patients. But the
enzymes involved were
expensive and had to be used
under highly acidic condi-
tions that damaged the red
cells. Goldstein's team was
not able to find an enzyme
that would convert type A to
type 0.
ZymeQuest commissioned
a team at the University of
Copenhagen to search for new
enzymes to carry out the con-
version. This team sifted
through more than 2,500 bac-
teria and fungi before identi-
fying the two candidates cited

HOME
Continued from 12A
"That's what I want to
know," he repeated more
emphatically.
Somehow there seemed to
be a breakdown in communi-
cation. There had to be a way
to get past what was begin-
ning to sound like a mantra or
something.
Not able to find any better
way of phrasing the question,
I tried again, "I mean, why
are you here at my house?"
"A 911 call was traced to
this address," he said.
My mind quickly processed
this response and I concluded
that there had been a mistake.
This should be easy to
resolve, I thought.
Knowing the phone situa-
tion at my house, and having
been well aware of the where-
abouts of my children during
the time previous to this intru-
sion, I explained that it was
impossible for anyone to have
called 911 from this address.
Surely this would settle the
matter and these kind officers
would go on their way.
"I only have one phone line
in my home and it is always
connected to my computer.
We only use cell phones these
days. The kids had been
nowhere near the computer
and my oldest son is asleep on
the couch," I said.
This response did nothing
to help the situation and only
further provoked the already
angry officer. His face became
redder and his brow more fur-
rowed as he continued to
insist that a call to 911 had
been traced from this address
by someone claiming to have
heard people yelling, "I want
to live!" He also informed me
that I was being "very unco-
operative."
The idea that a law enforce-
ment officer would consider
me "uncooperative" was ludi-
crous. I'm not even very good
at being uncooperative when
doing so would be in my best
interest.
"Honestly, there is no way


the call could have been made
from here," I insisted, trying
my best to 'cooperate.' "Do
you want to come inside and
let me show you the phone
setup so you'll see what I'm
talking about," I offered coop-
eratively.
As if he hadn't heard the
invitation, he put his nose up
and began sniffing around.
"I smell dope. Do you
smell dope?" he asked the
other officer who had been
quietly standing beside me
listening to the whole ordeal.
This just can't be happen-
ing, I thought to myself, try-
ing to remain as calm as pos-
sible.
"You don't smell dope in
my house," I replied, making
every effort to squelch the
sense of indignation I felt by
such an insinuation. "I have a
scented candle burning in my
room where I was watching
TV. Would you like to see
that, too? You are welcome to
come into the house and look
at whatever you want. You
won't find any illegal drugs or
paraphernalia here, I can
assure you."
By this point I was shaking
and becoming more irritated
by the second. The idea that a
law-abiding citizen could be.
laying in bed minding their
own business and suddenly be
bombarded by weapon-bear-
ing men in uniforms was
unfathomable.
Still not willing to accept or
acknowledge the invitation to
investigate, the officer
resumed his original line of
questioning.
"How would you know
what's happening around here
if you're in your room watch-
ing television?" he asked.
(Obviously this man has little
'knowledge of the multi-task-
ing skills of seasoned moth-
ers).
"Look," I told him, "these
are my daughters and these
are their friends. They were
outside and the only thing
they did tonight that even bor-
dered being wrong, was stu-
pid, perhaps, but not illegal.
They jumped into the lake..


But none of them could have
called 911 from this house.
(They had already been ques-
tioned and all had said they
knew nothing of any 911
call).
"I'm really shook up by all
of this," I added.
"You're shook up?" he
retorted, "How do you think
we feel? I wish I could take
you to jail right now."
Up to that point, I didn't
think I could be any more
shocked than I already was.
"You what?" I stammered.
"You want to take me to jail?"
"Yes, I do," he replied.
"For what?" I asked, flab-
bergasted even more by all
that was unfolding. "What did
I do?"
"You," he said, pointing his
stubby finger directly at my
nose, "put the entire city in
jeopardy."
I was horrified by the idea
that anyone would even think'
of wanting to take me to jail,
especially when all I was
doing was sitting in my room
attempting to watch mindless
television while simultaneous-
ly commanding a handful of
teenagers.
"How did I put the entire
city in jeopardy?" I asked.
"Because, a 911 call was
placed from this residence and
you refuse to do anything
about it. We came here at high
speeds thinking someone's
life was in danger and you're
being very uncooperative."
By now, my blood pressure
had soared to the point at
which a nitro would have
been in order. I wonder who I
would've called if I had
begun to experience signs of a
heart attack. -,
"What do you expect me to
do?" I asked. "Could you
show me how the'call was
traced here? I've got all these
kids telling me they didn't do
it: I know how my phone is
set up; I know who's been in
the house and that no one
could have placed the call
from here; and I offered to let
you come in and see for your-
self."
"I don't have to prove any-


' thing to you. I don't have to
show you anything. I know
that a call to 911 was placed
from this residence and you
are being uncooperative -
you're refusing to do anything
about it," he said as he
stormed off to his car.
"What do you want me to
do?" I practically shouted
with frustration. "Do you
want to give these kids a
polygraph or something?"
(1 didn't say it, but it
occurred to me that perhaps
he would rather have me tie
them to chairs and burn the
bottoms of their feet with lit
cigarettes until one of them
confessed).
No response. He just got
into his car and drove away.
During the course of the
dialogue between that officer
and I, the other officer had
periodically asked if I knew
anyone from Miami, to which
I had replied, "No."
Apologizing for what I had
been put through, the quiet
officer repeated the question,
"Do you know anybody from
Miami'?"
"No," I told him again.
This time 1 decided to wake
my sleeping son to see if he
could shed some light on this
Twilight Zone experience.
I swatted him on the bot-
tom of his foot and, bleary-
eyed, he sat up, repeating the
mantra of the night, "What's
going on here?"
"Do you know anybody
from Miami?" I asked.
"Yeah. Why? What's going
on?"
I told him of the 911 allega-
tions and he quickly looked at
his cell phone.
"My girlfriend is in
Miami," he said. "I was sleep-
ing and she called. I must've
thought it was my alarm
going off and hit the snooze
button (the same button used
for answering incoming calls).
She must have heard the
movie in the background and
called 911 thinking something
bad was happening."
Sure enough. That's exactly
what had happened. Having
lost her brother in a home-


invasion, and then hearing, "I
wanta live! I wanta live!"
coming from the movie
"Saw," on top of all the other
sounds from the kids, my TV,
and myself barking out orders
in the background, made her
fear for our safety.
After eight minutes of lis-
tening to that and a failed
attempt to reach me on my
cell phone, she did the only
thing she knew to do she
called 911.
I suppose it's nice to know
that if you need help and you

This discovery could be a
major breakthrough in
improving the blood supply,
according to ,the Bristol
Institute for Transfusion
Sciences at the University of
British Columbia. The new
enzymes are more potent than
previously used ones and,
more importantly, they work
at room temperature and are
neutral pH, which is good for
blood cells. In an hour, they
remove all sugar molecules
from the surface of red blood
cells, after which they can be
easily washed away.

PERU Build A House




I Make A Home

Avon Park couple's trip to Peru spawns quest

to obtain washer and dryer for orphanage


By CINDY MARSHALL
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK
Jim and Carol Phipps set out to help build a children's
home for orphans in Peru and returned home lith
another mission in mind.
The couple, who have never set foot out of the
United States except for a quick walk across the Me\ilc.in
border, were in Peru from March 19 to April 2 to o>rk
with Everette Tent Ministries in-building a home ior 12
orphan girls in Iquitos.
Although they worked side by side with the vill.ae eis
in building this house and learning the culture, thc\
came home with another goal -- provide the home
with a washer and dryer. The house has electricity and
indoor plumbing, but because the area is poor there is
little money for such appliances.
"They have water and sewer and wash their
clothes by hand," Carol Phipps said.. "They hang
the clothes on a line but, because of the humidity,
it is hard for them to dry."
With this many children in the home, Carol
Phipps feels it is a necessity to have these appli-
ances. In American money, it would cost approx-
imately $500 to purchase a washer and $400 for
a dryer. They came home soliciting family and
friends for donations and are asking the local
community to assist.

Poor conditions
Iquitos is on the Amazon River and the
area is very poor, so food supplies are
always needed. Carol-Phipps said there are .
7,000 orphan children who sleep on side-
walks or in alleys and are starving not only
for food, but for love.
"At 8 years old, they are put out on the
streets to beg or get them something to
sell to get money," she said. "It was so
'sad how they begged. It was near the --
waterfront and the kids were everywhere."
One night while they were down by the river, "We
watched two young girls dance to native music and put boi
heads in their mouth."
Carol Phipps said the main'food staples are eggs. chicken
and rice. They do get potatoes, beef, pork and fish from the
farmers market nearby, but there is little money to buy these
items. The Phipps enjoyed fresh juice,
bananas and yucca.
One day, they went to the poorestpart of Wan'
the city, known as Belin, with an interpreter,
a pastor from California and two police Donations
escorts. Everette Te

Although Jim admitted he was afraid of
water, he could not pass up the opportunity -
to ride a boat on the Amazon River.

"I don't like water, but I was glad I went. The water is more
than 100 feet deep," he said.
They took about a 30- to 40-minute ride in a wooden dugout
- with no lifejackets to an island that was like a fruit plan-
tation. Other than the boats, bicycles are the main form of
transportation. There are very few vehicles except the three-
wheelers the Phipps rode from the airport to get to
Iquitos. Jim said this also was a frightening
ride since there are no traffic
rules.


Alfte the boat ride. "We stopped in
front of a thatch-roofed hut to watch a monkey, and
the people invited us in," Carol Phipps
said. "This one had plank floors because

ils, call (706) The soup had
-mail yucca, herbs and
o.com. boiled green
bananas that -
Carol Phipps -
said tasted like
boiled potatoes.
After the meal, they attended a
church service. "We spoke of Jesus
and sang songs, then gave them
candy," Carol Phipps said.

Building a home
Jim Phipps sanded, scrubbed
and painted the kitchen in the
children'\ home while his
wile did housework and
painted. 2
"The hardest part was
hre.iking that concrete
ot.ii" lim Phipps said.
The cabinets were
niade out of con-
crete." He also
,. admitted that it was difficult
for him to build because e% er\ thine ,. ai iin
Spanish and the metric system.
In addition to housework, Carol Phipps enjoyed
v.'orking with the children. "I taught them redneck
English," she chuckled.
After this home is completed in June, Larry
Everette with Everette Ministries plans to build a
bigger home for even more kids. The home that
the Phipps worked on is managed by Blanca
Canaquini, a 21-year-old woman who was
taken off the streets by a pastor there and
given the opportunity to work and live in the
home.
Work is scarce in Iquitos. Jim Phipps
e'.plained there used to be a rubber factory that pro-
'ded inc,:,me for the villagers, but the government closed it
and no\, there is no work. "If the government wants it, they
take it." he said. But, he said the children's home and the land
it sits on are protected from the government.


The primary income in Peru is fishing and logging.
In talking about fishing, Jim Phipps showed a picture of a
pink dolphin painting and told about the .mysterious 'fish,
although he admitted they never got to see one. According to a
\\eb .ie .ibouti liuit>o. '(- the five freshwater species of dol-
phins in the worldld the pink Amazon River dolphin are
considered to be the most intelligent.
These friendly, sensitive
mammals with a brain
capacity 40 percent larger
than that of humans, who
have lived in harmony with
the people of the Amazon and
its tributaries for centuries,
now face extinction in some
tributaries.
"What was considered to be
one of the least threatened
species of dolphins 20 years ago
has now become one of the most
endangered species due to the
accelerated'and commercialized
Scrape of the Amazon basin and the
destruction of the South American
topical rain forest."
Some homes are made.of thatch
.ind brush and old boards, held togeth-
er loosely by used nails and wire.
Nklai houses are built on platforms to
:accoinmodate the tides and floods of the
greo,t river system, according to a Web
site about Iquitos:
Health conditions are poor and medical
treatment is more than two hours away by
boat. Carol Phipps said this could explain
the leas,,n why many adults are not avail-
able to take care of the children.
For anyone interested in taking care of
Peruvian children, paperwork will soon be
completed by the government to allow fami-
lies iii United States and South America to
adopt these children.

A true minister
The Phipps met Larry Everette with Everette
Tent Minittries while camping in Georgia last
year. Everette talked about his missionary work
in Peru and after the Phipps visited his home they
were hooked.
"We went to his home in Georgia, and he doesn't live big
and fine," Carol said about Everette. "This guy lives like we
do. He's not taking the money; he's helping the kids."
The Phipps recently retired and have been traveling to vari-
ous state parks working, but this new foreign adventure took
them to new heights. They entered a country at their own
expense with people who had dark skin, hair and eyes. Jim
Phipps was tagged "Popeye" since he resembled the cartoon
character with his fair complexion and gray hair.
The villagers also were entranced with
his hairy arms and chest.
"They
have no hair
on their
arms, face or
chest," Jim
Phipps said.
"The kids kept
rubbing my
arms."
The children
melted their
hearts, and they
both admitted
they were ready to
-bring one home. It

ey es and warm
smiles of the chil-
dren that convinced
the Phipps they will
Sone day make another
trip back to Peru to
do even more work.

there is running water and electricity in the home, staff still

children living in the home.

'Disturbia' is a surprisingly good thriller _SPIDEF

What would you do if you
thought you saw your neigh-
bor kill someone?
That's the question you
find yourself asking while
watching "Disturbia" a sur-
prisingly engaging and clever
film.
Shia LaBeouf stars as Kale,
a high school student who
gets placed under house arrest
after punching his Spanish
teacher. He can't go more
than 100 feet away from his
house, which means he is
forced to spend his entire
summer at home.
Kale's confinement starts
out well enough: he plays lots
of video games, downloads
music on his computer and
generally just lazes around.
Then he begins to go stir
crazy with boredom, which
leads to him enjoying a more
interesting version of reality
television his neighbors.
But of course, there are
complications. First, Ashley
(Sarah Roemer), an attractive
new neighbor, moves in next
door. She catches Kale and
his friend Ronnie (Aaron Yoo)
spying on her and comes over
to confront him, but instead of
being upset about the invasion
of privacy she instead decides
to join in the snooping.
And as so often happens in
the world of movies, the spy-
ing trio get more than they
bargained for. First, Kale sus-
pects that his neighbor,
Robert Turner (David Morse),
is responsible for a missing
woman. The group's fears are
seemingly confirmed when
they see a splattering of blood
in Turner's bathroom window.
And then Kale is struck
with a new kind of fear when
he sees Turner staring back at
him.
From there, the movie
evolves into a cat-and-mouse
game, as Kale and his friends
try to verify their suspicions
about Turner's evil intentions.
Of course, Kale can't leave
his house, so instead he's
forced to use lots of expen-


Many may have
heard the following
story:
A lady had invited I
several of her
friends to a mush- 1iA*
room-steak dinner.
The ,day came and
the final prepara-
tions were being
made when things Verl
began to go wrong.
When the maid Spir
opened the can of Vi&
mushrooms, she dis-
covered an unsightly Verlon
skim on the top. Since
the guests were expected at
any moment, the hostess sug-
gested, "Give a little to the
dog, and if he eats it, it will
probably be fine." The dog
quickly lapped it up and
begged for more, so the din-
ner went on as scheduled.
All the guests ate the mush-
room-steak and gave it great
reviews. But after the main
course, the maid entered the
room with a horrid look on
her face. She leaned down
and whispered into her
employer's ear, "Ma'am, the
dog is dead."
Panic stricken, the lady fig-
ured there was only one thing
to do and she did it.
Sometime later, the guests
were reclining after the use of
the stomach pump. It had
been a terrible ordeal, but she
assumed it had to be done.
She called for the maid and
asked; "Where is the poor dog
now?" The maid replied, "Out
on the front step, Ma'am,
where he fell after the car hit
him."
We have all been guilty of
jumping to conclusions from
time to time. About the only
exercise some of us get is
"climbing" the walls, "run-
ning" people down and
"jumping" to conclusions. We
are quick on the draw when
looking for a flaw. And, of
course, if we. would get our
facts straight beforehand, we

would save our-
selves a lot of mis-
ery and embarrass-
r P ment.
SJesus warned,
"Do not judge
according to
appearance, but
judge. righteous
judgment" (Jn.
ons 7:24). Righteous
on$ s judgment is a con-
itual clusion based on
min facts, not supposi-
tions.
Carrell An "illusion" is
"believing what is
false." And all of us are guilty
at times of "illusions,"
because we jump to conclu-
sions about others without
knowing the facts. It is easy
for us to jump to conclusions
in religion. Here are some
examples of illusions from
jumping to conclusions:
1. The church is full hyp-
ocrites.
2. Those whom we consid-
er "liberal" have no respect
for Bible authority.
3. Those whom we consid-
er "conservative" are all
legalists.
4. Those who emphasize
"love" have no regard for
truth.
5. Those who emphasize
"truth" do not really love.
6. Those who focus on
Jesus have no regard for what
He says for us to do.
7. Those who focus on
what Jesus said have no faith
in His sacrifice for our sins.
On and on the list could go,
not only about religious mat-
ters, but in all other areas of
life. A closer walk with God
involves avoiding "Illusions
from jumping to conclu-
sions." Let's get the facts
before the acts (or axe).

'Disturbia'
gets





sive electronic surveillance
equipment to do the job. But
his obsession with proving
that Turner is a killer ends up
putting himself and his
friends in grave danger.
"Disturbia" is filled with
relative newcomers in the
lead roles (with the notable
exception of Morse, who has
been a longtime character
actor in Hollywood) and it
was co-written and directed
by a group of guys whose pri-
mary experience is in TV.
But despite the inexperi-
ence of its makers, the film
works. The acting perform-
ances are strong particularly
LaBeouf, who is best-known
by most for his work in the
Disney Channel show "Even
Stevens." He shines in the
most important role in the
film, and he carries the heavy
emotional load throughout.
Roemer plays the role of


the flirty, slightly innocent
girl next door to perfection,
and her and LaBeouf have
remarkable on screen chem-
istry. Yoo is excellent in his
role as the comic relief of the
film and Morse is brilliant
(albeit incredibly creepy) as
the possibly psychopathic
Turner.
And don't be fooled by the
trailers there's more to
"Disturbia" than merely a kid
under house arrest spying.
There's a love story as well as
an interesting mother-son
dynamic in the film, and also
some decent action scenes.
Unfortunately, in what has
become an all-too-common
occurrence these days, the
aforementioned trailer for
"Disturbia" gives away way
more than it should. For the
life of me, I'll never under-
stand why the filmmakers
would want to give away their
entire plot in a preview.
A movie like "Disturbia,"
starts with character develop-
ment and builds to a crescen-
do of action. But the crescen-
do is ruined if the viewer
already knows where the
movie is going. So even
though the movie loses some
of its unpredictability thanks
to the overzealous trailer, the


plot moves quickly and the
film stays interesting through-
out.
An obvious comparison can
be made between this film
and the Hitchcock classic
"Rear Window," but that com-
parison isn't entirely accurate.
"Rear Window" is obviously a
better movie, but in fairness,
it's one of the best movies
ever made. But the movies do
have similarities. Like "Rear
Window," "Disturbia" is
filled with interesting charac-
ters, solid suspense, and
(thankfully) a solid plot. The
film is cleverly written and
well directed, and the action
doesn't drag.
So in the end, "Disturbia"
doesn't need the "Rear
Window" comparisons. It
stands up very well on its
own.

Church members join 'Red Friday' campaign


Friday, April 20, 2007 5B


'Love's Abiding Joy' to be shown


SEBRING The First
Presbyterian ARP Church
of Sebring is planning to
join the "Red Friday" cam-
paign. The members are
asked to either wear a red
ribbon each Friday or to
wear a piece of red clothing
to indicate that each mem-
ber supports our troops in
their endeavor to protect
our freedom.
The campaign was insti-
tuted because of an event
that occurred at an airport.
While awaiting the depar-
ture of his flight, the narra-
tor explained that a group
of soldiers in their camou-
flage uniform were also
awaiting their flight.
Courtney, a 9-year-old
girl, ran up to a young sol-
dier and gave him a hug
with all the strength that


she could muster. Her
mother explained that
Courtney's dad was a
Marine serving in Iraq and
had not been home for 14
months. She missed her
father greatly.
As the young mother
explained, the young sol-
dier began to tear up. When
this temporarily single
mom was done explaining
her situation, all of the sol-
diers huddled together for a
brief second. Then one of
the soldiers pulled out a
military looking walkie-
talkie and started talking
back and forth on it. After
about 10-15 seconds of
this, the young soldier
walked back over to
Courtney, bent down and
said to her, "I spoke to your'
Daddy and he told me to


give this to you." He then
hugged this little girl that
he had just met and gave
her a kiss on the cheek.
He finished by saying
"Your Daddy told me to tell
you that he loves you more
than anything and he is
coming home soon." The
young mother at this point
was crying almost uncon-
trollably and as the young
soldier stood to his feet, he
saluted Courtney and her
mom.
The narrator said that he
was standing no more than
6 feet away from this event
as it unfolded. As the sol-
diers began to leave, head-
ing towards their gate, peo-
ple began to applaud.
"As I stood there
applauding and looking
around, there were very

Though the largemouth
bass' spawning period is over,
there are still plenty of
big'uns around, catching them
now takes a little more time
and work. The larger bass
have retreated to the
weedbeds and the patches of
hydrilla where they can feel
safe and can ambush their
prey much easier.


A lot of smaller bass can
still be taken on topwater
plugs and bottom crawling
plastic worms and ugly jigs.
The larger bass are lazy and
don't want to chase after their
dinner. Dinner has to come to
them in the form of a large,
live, wild shiner.
Just a week or so ago, Eric
Smith, an 11-year-old young-
ster from West Palm Beach
caught a couple of nice bass
in Lake Istokpoga while visit-
ing his grandparents, J. D. and
Barb Parker, who maintain a
residence at Trails End
Fishing Resort.
Eric was using a wild shin-
er as bait when he caught a 3-
pounder. Eric is not wasteful,
he purchases ,his shiners one
at a time from the bait shop at
the resort. After catching the
3-pounder, he purchased
another shiner and promptly


caught a bass that tipped the
scales at 4-pounds.
The bass fishing has been
good on most of the county's
lakes. Lake Jackson, here in
Sebring, lake June near Lake
Placid and lake Lotela in
Avon Park have all reported
good bass fishing along with a
pickup in bluegill fishing.
A trio of bass anglers from
Fort Myers makes frequent
journeys to Lake Istokpoga.
Once or twice a month, Joe
Frazee brings his two sons to
Trails End to enjoy boating
and fishing on the big lake.
On their last visit, the
weekend of April 14th, the
trio, all using wild shiners,
caught a large bass. Yes, I
said trio because I don't really
know whose shiner the fish
took. So, I'll just have to say
that it was a team effort.
See FISH,. page 4D

on the scales.

ebrate or show the importance of recy-
cling to our area runners," said race
director Chet Brojek, "and I thought the
'bring-a-shirt, take-a-shirt' concept would
be fun to try."

cover the 5K distance. Race day registra-
tion will start at 6:30 a.m. with the

Movies Part III: Football films and basketball dreams


Continuing the series on sports
movies, we've come to films about
football and basketball.
I last wrote about how most
movies about boxing did well in
casting actors who could pull off
the athletic aspect of the roles, and
how baseball movies sometimes did
well in casting, but sometimes
grossly missed the mark.
Football movies seem to have
done well overall, but a lot of it can
be hidden.
With all the pads and helmets on,
who knows if it is truly the actor in
the action scenes?
I mean really, was that Adam
Sandler leaping over and pile-driv-
ing offensive linemen in The Water
Boy (not on the list)?
Then again, Burt Reynolds was a
quarterback at Florida State, so I'm
guessing he was throwing his own
passes in The Longest Yard (number
41 on the best reviewed sports
movies list).
You could see the players faces
pretty clear in most of the action
sequences of Remember the Titans
(number 52) and Friday Night
Lights (number 38) so.I think they
did some good casting.


But in movies like those, they
have the luxury of casting athletes
first, actors second for the team
member roles, whereas the stronger,'
more well-known actors are the
coaches.
Sean Astin did a good job playing
the "5-foot nothing 100-and-noth-
ing,'without a speck of athletic abil-
ity," walk-on of the Notre Dame
practice squad in Rudy (number
45).
But if they just wanted some
undersized schIub to get the crap
knocked out of him every practice, I
could have done that just as well.
Astin would go on to play an
even more undersized schlub as
Sam in the Lord of the Rings trilo-
gy.
North Dallas Forty is the highest
of the football movies on the list
(number 33) and I'll admit to not
having seen it since about 1978,
when I was rather young., so I can't
say for sure if actors like Nick
Nolte were able to pull off the foot-.
ball part of it but I believe Nolte
was a very good high school foot-
ball player, so I'm pretty sure he
held his own.
Basketball, like baseball, is a


And Another
Thing...

somewhat mixed bag when it comes
to casting.
They'll sometimes have actors
who can play some hoop, like in
White Men Can't Jump (number 48)
with Wesley Snipes and Woody
Harrelson.
Sometimes they'll get a great
actor, and have him play basketball
while made up like a werewolf, so
they can have someone else doing
the basketball scenes (Michael J.
Fox in Teen Wolf, not on the list).
Other times they'll get a basket-
ball player and try get a decent act-
ing job out of him, like in He Got
Game (number 44) with Seattle


Supersonic Ray Allen playing the
lead role of Jesus Shuttlesworth.
Allen did an ok enough job, but
often seemed as stiff acting as Tom
Berenger did trying to act like a
baseball player in Major League.
Hoosiers (number 17) did a fine
job of getting a group of actors who
could play 1950s-style basketball
and Love and Basketball did a good
casting job with Sanaa Lathan who
could play women's basketball very
well, and Omar Epps was decent
enough playing her basketball-play-
ing, next-door-neighbor, on-again,
off-again, on-again love interest.
Of course, there are other movies
that deal with football and basket-
ball, but those are documentaries
which is a whole different story.
Movies such as Go Tigers (num-
ber 29) about a high school football
team, and The Heart of the Game
(number 28) about a high school
girls basketball team are just show-
ing athletes, with no worry about
acting, so of course they look like
they can play.
For boxing, there is the documen-
tary When We Were Kings (number
4) which tells the story of the
events leading up to the Mohammed


Ali-George Foreman fight so of
course as far as boxers go, you were
watching The Greatest.
And finally there is Hoop Dreams
(number 5) which documents four
years in the life of two high school
basketball players.
The two boys, Arthur Agee and
William Gates, can obviously play
well Gates would earn a scholar-
ship to Marquette and Agee would
lead his team to the state semifinals.
But the movie is also so engross-
ing, you almost forget it isn't a
scripted film and these aren't
actors.
Okay, so ILgot off on a tangent
and gave a movie review, but I
can't help with when discussing
Hoop Dreams probably my all-
time favorite sports movie.
But there are plenty of others that
I love as well, which is what I'll
finish up this series with next issue.
The list of the top 53 reviewed
sports movies, and my reaction to
it.

Forward Press


Many golfers freeze over the ball
because they don't know how and
when to start the swing, causing the
club to jerk away from the ball and
throwing off their rhythm and timing.
To achieve a smooth, flowing back-
swing, initiate the takeaway with
what is called at .,,r, ,, press." The
best way to forward press is by gently
flexing your back knee in toward the
ball. Then the clubhead movement is
triggered by the knee rebounding
back to its starting position. Think
\ forward press to make the backswing
automatic.

By BRIAN MAHONEY
Associated Press
A look at the eight first-round
series in the NBA playoffs, which
start this weekend:

Eastern Conference
No. 1 DETROIT PISTONS
(53-29)
vs.
No. 8 ORLANDO MAGIC
(40-42)
Season series: Pistons won 4-0,
including a victory last week in
Detroit that gave them home-court
advantage throughout the East play-
offs. Chauncey Billups shot 63 per-
cent and averaged 26 points against
the Magic.
Storyline: Top-seeded Detroit
opens against a sub.-500 team for
the second straight year, welcoming
former Pistons Grant Hill and Darko
Milicic back to the Palace of Auburn
Hills.
Key Matchup 1: Chris Webber vs.
Dwight Howard. Howard has
become nearly an automatic double-
double, sort of like Webber was in
his prime. Now Webber, who helped
jump-start the Pistons after signing
with his hometown team, will have
to use his smarts to slow the
Magic's All-Star center.
Key Matchup II: Tayshaun Prince
vs. Hill. Hill has struggled with
injuries ever since leaving Detroit,
but had a nice game at the Palace in
the most recent meeting, scoring 22
points. It's up to the versatile Prince
to prevent him from doing it again.
X-Factor: Hedo Turkoglu. Had a
strong April, and is one of the few
Magic players with playoff experi-
ence from his years in Sacramento.
Prediction: Pistons in 4.

No. 2 CLEVELAND CAVALIERS
(50-32)
vs.
No. 7 WASHINGTON WIZARDS
(41-41)
Season series: Cavaliers, 2-1.
Only one meeting came after the
Wizards lost All-Stars Gilbert Arenas
and Caron Butler, with Cleveland
winning 99-94 in Washington on
April 6. LeBron James shot only 39
percent while averaging 23.7 points
against the Wizards.
Storyline: Cavaliers clinched No.
2 seed on final night of the regular
season to earn what many consider
the easiest first-round opponent.
The Wizards have stumbled badly
since losing Arenas and Butler to
injuries.
Key matchup I: James 'vs.
Antawn Jamison. The Cavaliers ask
James to do everything because he
can: The Wizards are now forced to
do the same with Jamison because
they have no choice, since he's the
only member of their Big Three still
playing.
Key matchup II: Larry Hughes
vs. Antonio Daniels. Washington
needs someone else to score, and
Daniels, a playoff veteran, has the
quickness to do it. Hughes, the for-
mer Wizards star, is a strong defen-
sive guard who will try to prevent it.
X-factor: DeShawn Stevenson.
With so much scoring missing, the

get results!


Wizards need to make up for it with
defense. That's what Stevenson is in
Washington for, and will get some
turns at stopping James.
Prediction: Cavaliers in 5.

No. 3 TORONTO RAPTORS
47-35)
vs.
No. 6 NEW JERSEY NETS
(41-41)
Season series: Tied, 2-2, with
each team winning twice on its
home floor. All four games were
decided by double digits.
Storyline: The surprising Atlantic
Division champions against the
team that was the preseason pick to
win it. The series sends former
Raptors star Vince Carter back to
Toronto, where he will likely be
booed every time he touches the
ball.
Key matchup I: Chris Bosh vs.
Mikki Moore. Bosh, a first-time All-
Star starter who averaged 22.6
points and 10.7 rebounds, is capa-
ble of scoring on the blocks or from
the outside. Moore capitalized on
the absence of Nenad Krstic to have
the best season of his career, shoot-
ing a league-best 60.9 percent.
Key matchup II: T.J. Ford vs.
Jason Kidd. The acquisition of the
speedy Ford in an offseason trade
with Milwaukee was one of the cat-
alysts for Toronto's improvement.
Kidd, one of the NBA's best defen-
sive point guards, will try to slow
him down.
X-factor: Anthony. Parker. With
the Raptors having such little post-
season experience, the former star
in Europe could be a calming pres-
ence, especially if he's knocking
down his jumpers.
Prediction: Raptors in 7.

No. 4 MIAMI HEAT
(44-38)
vs.
No. 5 CHICAGO BULLS
(49-33)
Season series: Bulls, 3-1, high-
lighted by a 108-66 rout on opening
night in Miami. The Heat's lone vic-
tory was a 103-70 romp in Chicago,
where Miami is just 1-9 all-time in
the postseason.
Storyline: Loss at New Jersey on
final night of the regular season
leaves the Bulls with rematch of
tense first-round series with Heat.


Miami won in six games last year to
start its run to the NBA title.
Key matchup I: Dwyane Wade
vs. Kirk Hinrich. Hinrich defends
and frustrates his USA teammate
about as well as anyone. The Bulls
will surely bump Wade around to
see if his shoulder and knee can
handle the punishment.
Key matchup II: Ben Wallace vs.
Shaquille O'Neal. No matter what
teams they are playing for, this
matchup in the pivot is becoming an
annual occurrence. Both players
had below-average regular seasons
for their standards, but the Bulls
didn't throw $60 million at Wallace
for that, and this is the only time of
year that matters to Shaq.
X-factor: James Posey. Missed
the regular-season finale with an
injured shoulder, but Heat expect
him to be ready. He'd likely be called
upon to slow Luol Deng or Andres
Nocioni, Chicago's aggressive
swingmen.
Prediction: Heat in 7.

Western Conference
No. 1 DALLAS MAVERICKS
(67-15)
vs.
No. 8 GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS
(42-40)
Season series: Warriors, 3-0,
though throw out the last one after
Dallas rested just about anybody
important in the second-to-last
game of the season.
Storyline: A familiar face is the
Mavericks' first obstacle in their
quest to return to the NBA finals.
Former Dallas coach Don Nelson
has the Warriors back in the play-
offs for the first time since 1994,
whenthe was in his previous stint in
the Bay Area.
Key matchup I: Josh Howard vs.
Stephen Jackson or AI Harrington. A
first-time All-Star, there are some
who say Howard is the Mavs' best
all-around player. Part of that is
because of his strong defensive
play, which he'll be called upon to
show off against one of the
Warriors' versatile forwards.
Key matchup II: Devin Harris vs.
Baron Davis. Davis played superbly
this season when healthy, and he
has the strength to overpower
Harris, who must take advantage of
his quickness edge.
X-factor: Erick Dampier. Nellie


loves to play small, but may have to
alter his plans if the Mavericks leave
their center out on the floor and he
controls the area around the rim.
Prediction: Mavericks in 6.

No. 2 PHOENIX SUNS
(61-21) '
vs.
No. 7 LOS ANGELES LAKERS
(42-40)
Season series: Suns, 3-1, giving
them 10 victories in the last 12 reg-
ular-season meetings. Kobe Bryant
averaged 27.3 points, more than
four below his league-best average,
in three games against Phoenix.
Storyline: Rematch of a first-
round series from last year, which
Suns won in seven games. But cir-
cumstances are different this time.
Suns have Amare Stoudemire, and
the Lakers don't have the momen-
tum they did after a strong finish a
year ago.
Key matchup 1: Raja Bell vs.
Bryant. Bell isn't afraid to challenge
the league's leading scorer, getting
hit with a one-game suspension in
last year's series for taking Bryant
down with a hard foul. Bryant shot
only 40.5 percent against the Suns
this season.
Key matchup II: Stoudemire vs.
Kwame Brown. Lakers coach Phil
Jackson has said this series will be
tougher this time because of
Stoudemire, who missed the 2006
postseason while recovering from
knee surgery. Brown played well on
both ends of that series for the
Lakers, who need him to do it again.
X-factor: Kurt Thomas. If the
Lakers are successful in slowing it
down and pounding it into the post,
Thomas will likely get a shot to
guard one of the opposing, big men.
Prediction: Suns in 5.

No. 3 SAN ANTONIO SPURS
(58-24)
vs.
No. 6 DENVER NUGGETS
(45-37)
Season series: Spurs, 2-1.
Denver won easily in the season
finale while both teams rested their
top players. The first meeting came
during Carmelo Anthony's suspen-
sion for fighting, and the Spurs held
Anthony and Allen Iverson to a com-
bined 24 points while winning the
second one.

Storyline: Two teams with plenty
of momentum heading to the post-
season. San Antonio had the NBA's
best record after the All-Star break,
and is much healthier than it was at
this time last year. The Anthony-
Iverson pairing took some time, but
it paid off down the stretch as the
Nuggets surged to the No. 6 seed.
Key matchup I: Tony Parker vs.
Iverson. Perhaps the NBA's two
fastest players with the ball. Iverson
was slowed by an ankle injury in the
second matchup, so the Spurs have
only seen that speed from him once
since he joined the Nuggets.
Key matchup II: Bruce Bowen vs.
Anthony. Bowen, one of the league's
best 1-on-1 defenders, tries to shut
down one of its top scorers.
Anthony averaged 19.2 points while
being played by Bowen when these
teams met in the first round of the
2005 playoffs.
X-factor: Marcus Camby. When
healthy, he has been a dominant
shot blocker and defensive
rebounder. Now he needs to make
things tough for Tim Duncan and
help negate the penetration by
Parker and Manu Ginobili.
Prediction: Spurs in 6.

No. 4 UTAH JAZZ
(51-31)
vs.
No. 5 HOUSTON ROCKETS
(52-30)
Season series: Jazz, 3-1, though
the Rockets rested Tracy McGrady
and Yao Ming in a meaningless sea-
son-ending game Wednesday.
Houston has scored 100 points only


twice in the last 13 meetings.
Storyline: A pair of former
Western Conference powers return
to the postseason; with Houston All-
Star McGrady trying again to get out
of the opening round for the first
time.
Key Matchup I: Mehmet Okur vs.
Yao. Two All-Star international cen-
ters who play the game in different
ways. Okur is a terrific perimeter
shooter who came through with a
number of clutch baskets this sea-
son. Yao has been dominant down
on the blocks when healthy.
Key Matchup II: Andrei Kirilenko
vs. Shane Battier. Excellent team
defenders who can block shots, get
steals, and guard players at multiple -
positions. Kirilenko had a disap-
pointing season and missed five
games down the stretch with a
thumb injury, but this is a chance to
forget about that.
X-Factor: Chuck Hayes. The
Rockets know they'll get offense
from Yao and McGrady, but need
somebody to defend and rebound
against Jazz All-Star Carlos Boozer.
Hayes, only 6-foot-6, might be the
best hope.
Prediction: Rockets in 6.
