Red Cross warns of

Record crowd at Sebring Day of Prayer


Special to the News-Sun
A Polk County American
Red Cross volunteer received
a strange phone call
Wednesday from someone
who stated they wanted to
confirm a scheduled "free
American Red Cross hurri-
cane home inspection."
The volunteer pressed the
caller a name and a number,
but the person would not give
it to them and just kept telling
them they were scheduled.
Eventually the person hung
up, and although the volun-
teer tried to get the number
through caller identification'
services, the number was
blocked.
Residents in Florida should
be aware that the American
Red Cross does not conduct
so-called "hurricane home
inspections." Anyone calling
about such services should be
treated with suspicion and
reported to authorities as a


possible scam.
The American Red Cross
does provide information on
how to prepare yourself and
your family for any type of
disaster, be it a hurricane, tor-
nado, flood, wildfire or sin-
gle-family fire. Anyone who
wants information on disaster
preparedness can contact their
local American Red Cross
chapter directly or their local
government emergency man-
agement offices.
For actual American Red
Cross disaster preparedness
information, contact your
local American Red Cross
chapter. Polk and Highlands
County residents may visit
the Polk County Chapter web
site at polkcountyfl.red
cross.org. Highlands County
residents may call (863) 386-
4440. Also visit the American
Red Cross national site at

There were 150 chairs that

Tentative Harder Hall


sale date set for July 20


A prayerful Sheriff Susan Benton participates in the
Day of Prayer event.


Kenwhite Management
intends to buy property
By MATT MURPHY
matt. murphy@newssun.corn
SEBRING The sale of
Harder Hall will take place
July 20, City Attorney Robert
Swaine reported at Tuesday's
Sebring City Council meet-
ing.
However, the sale date'
could be moved if there is an
objection to the city's lien
amount or its position as the
first creditor in line for repay-
ment, Swaine said. If an
objection is filed, a hearing
would then take place on July
13, which could result in the
date being postponed or can-
celed altogether depending on
whether the bankruptcy court
upholds the objection. The
deadline for filing an objec-
tion to the city's lien amount
or placement is June 1.
Kenwhite Management still
intends to file a purchase plan


for the property, Swaine said,
although it has not done so
yet. Attorneys representing
Jay Landesman have said at
previous, court hearings that
Kenwhite has run into diffi-
culties securing financing for
the project.
Kenwhite doesn't want
Harder Hall sold at auction,
Swaine said, because the
company wants to buy the
property. But in order- to
avoid an auction,
Landesman's company would
have to file a plan that would,
fully repay all creditors.
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court
entered an interim order earli-
er this week allowing Trustee
Kenneth Welt to borrow
money from the city of
Sebring to fund marketing
expenses for the sale of
Harder Hall. If there is no
objection to the interim order
over the next two weeks, the
final order will be entered at a

After 39 years, Bible has seen it all

Veteran educator retiring after serving as
teacher, principal and deputy superintendent


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING When Jim
Bible walked into his retire-
ment reception at Sebring
High School Wednesday,' it
was anybody's guess what he
was thinking.
Entering the Smith Center
could have reminded the 39-
year Highlands County
School Board veteran of his
six years as principal at SHS.
Maybe his thoughts wan-
dered to the start of his career,
12 years spent teaching chem-
istry and biology in the very
same school.
Either way, Bible has spent
every year since 1968 serving
the students of Highlands
County in some capacity,
most recently working as the
deputy superintendent under


Wally Cox.
One thing Bible noticed
over the years is how the dis-
trict has grown.
"When I first started, our
school system was seventh
.through 12th (grades) for high
school and 1 through 6 for
elementary school," he
recalled. "Then we formed the
middle school programs, split
high school and added kinder-
garten."
Bible was around for the
building of Sebring Middle
and High schools, and was
assistant principal when the
new SHS building opened.
Personnel working with
.Bible over the years said he
will be sorely missed in the
district because he knows so
much.
"Because he came up

ence and vast knowledge of
all areas of school situations
is just unbelievable," said
Carol Smith, Bible's secretary


for the past six years who also
worked with him at Sebring
Middle School in the mid-

Local humanitarians Making It Count, but need your help


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING When
Kaylene Walz and her hus-
band Doug attended her 20th
reunion of Forest Lake
Academy in Orlando, their
life changed.
Kaylene's friend and fellow
student Shawn Hyde and his
wife Kandy live in Roatan,
one of the Bay Islands on the
northern coast of Honduras.
Kandy shared that she was a
pediatric nurse and that a
friend's child had died in her
arms because of a lack of
medical facilities. As a result
she had formed Little Friends
Foundation in Honduras and
was trying to organize and
coordinate people to make a
difference. The project was to
build an emergency care med-
ical clinic.
The Walzes were so moved
that they decided to help and
made a trip ,to Roatan last
summer with Sebring's vascu-
lar surgeon from Florida
Hospital Heartland Medical
Center, Dr. Alan Skipper and
his family. Leading and coor-
dinating the group was Bucky
Weeks from The Florida
Hospital Foundation in
Orlando.
Upon their return, Walz


started a not-for-profit foun-
dation called Make It Count
Foundation Inc. The board of
directors is composed of
Doug and Kaylene Walz,
Mark and Ila Cox, Charlie
Kidd, Dr. Bill Chen, Raquel
Tejeda-Barrajas, Chris Miller
Jr., Dr. Allen Skipper and his
wife Ginny.
On June 24, the Make It
Count Foundation Inc. will be
one of four groups going to
Honduras. Some of the local
people who will be part of
that trip are the Walz family,
Dr. and Mrs. Dan Montero,
Dr. Tangunan and his family,
Dr. and Mrs. Allen Skipper
and their son Nate, Norb
Walz, Jean Griffin, Isaac
Sendros, Bob and Joan
Warren, Gene Bender, Chris
Miller, and Heath Townsend.
Southcoast Medical Center
from Laguna Beach, Calif.,
will be part of the effort as
well as groups from Florida:
Fish Memorial in Deland and
Celebration Hospital in
Kissimmee will also be repre-
sented.
"Our goal is to raise
$20,000 for our part of the
construction. We held a
fundraiser dinner and
received many monetary
donations from generous con-


tributors in our community.
Also, a high-end digital dental
X-ray machine was donated
by Dr. Bill Chen. So far we
have $11,000, but need
$9,000 more.
"A construction trailer has
been donated by Steve
Slaybaugh of Steve's Cargo
Express and Donnie Black
with D & S Stucco & Stone.
Our goal is to fill it with tools
and ship it to Honduras to
their construction site for the
next emergency care medical
clinic. We already haye 30
people going on that trip.
Everyone is paying their own
way, so all money donated
goes totally to the project,"
Kaylene Walz said.
Their wish list items are:
toilets, sinks, exam room
sinks, mirrors, tile, adhesive,
grout, spacers and sealers,
interior fluorescent lighting,
exterior motion sensor light-
ing, Formica countertops,
cabinetry, storage shelves,
refrigerators, a medical
record storage system, gener-
al office supplies, computers,
printer, fax, telephones, file
cabinet, medical record fold-
ers, small desk for exam
rooms, exam room stools, fire
extinguisher, identification
tags for rooms, reception

Library still hunting

It's easy to10 'Wipe Out Wireless Waste'

County has 24 places to drop of unwanted cell phones

Lateirrias Walton is presented with a certificate Thursday night from Rodger Hood (cen-
ter) executive director for Region 19 of Heartland Workforce, and Pastor James Hulen,
the Jobs for Life coordinator, for graduating from the Jobs For Life program. Jobs For
life teaches job skills to unemployed and underemployed people.


Special to the News-Sun
With more than 200 million
wireless subscribers in the
United States today, the need
to keep used wireless phones
out of local landfills is more
important than ever. With an
average life span of 18
months, wireless phones are
discarded at a rate of 130 mil-
lion per year.
A recycled wireless phone
can often be refurbished for
reuse. If not, it has valuable,
recyclable components that
can be used to make copper
plumbing pipes, gold and sil-
ver jewelry, automotive
bumpers or dashboards and
rechargeable battery packs.
Phones, batteries and
accessories recycled through
the "Wipe Out Wireless
Waste" program are not tax


deductible. However, these
contributions provide two
important benefits: 1) protect-
ing the environment through
recycling, and 2) risising
money for clean ups and
beautification projects in

Lewis,. an eight-year veteran
of the Day of Prayer obser-

Rounding out the 40-

David Flowers with help from
the Heartland Christian

The Heartland Christian

"This is about focusing on
the people who serve us every
day," he said, asking residents
to pledge to pray for their
elected and appointed offi-
cials each day for a year.
Kaser discussed the idea of
focused prayer, saying it tran-
scends morning devotionals
and should be a running con-
versation with the Lord.

for leaders weren't limited to
citizens.
"We need to pray for each
other, each other's families
and extended families," he
said.


the younger Cox in high
school at the beginning of his
teaching career.
For this reason, junior Cox
has looked at Bible as a men-
tor from that point on.
As for retirement, Bible
plans to stay active, both with
his outdoor hobbies and by
becoming a member of the
retired teachers organization.
"I'm not going to forget
public education," Bible said.
"Children are the heart of our
country and we need to do
everything we can by helping
and working with them."


HARDER
Continued from 1A
May 16 hearing in Miami.
Calls to the city offices
inquiring about Harder Hall
are being referred to Welt,
Swaine said. Guided tours are
also being made available to
potential buyers. During his
April 17 update to the city
council, Welt said several
entities have already
expressed an interest in pur-
chasing the property. The
interest, is encouraging, he
added, because the hotel has
not been formally marketed
yet.
Advertisements will soon
be appearing in the Wall
Street Journal and in several
Florida newspapers. A
Web site for the property, at
www.harderhall-bkc.com, has
also been established. The
site features information on
the property, photographs,
information on the status of
the bankruptcy case, and con-
tact information for Welt.
Also at Tuesday's city
council meeting:
Kelly Griffin was
appointed to the vacant seat
on the city's Community
Redevelopment Agency board
by a 4-0 count over three
other candidates. Council
president John Griffin


abstained from the vote
because Kelly is his daughter.
She currently works as an
interior designer at Griffin's
Carpet Mart in Sebring. Her
term will run until Sept. 30,
2010.
The seventh seat on the
CRA board has been vacated
since Mike Carter's departure
in September last year. The
lack of candidates for the
position was blamed on com-
missioner ineligibility for
facade grants. To address the
problem, the city council
passed new guidelines at its
April 17 meeting that allows
CRA board members to apply
for the grants.
John Haviland was unan-
imously reappointed to the
Sebring Airport Authority for
a four-year term. Haviland
has served on the Airport
Authority board since 1990,
and he previously served on
the Sebring City Council
from 1983 until 1990.
An ordinance requiring
members of the city's
Planning and Zoning Board to
live in the city will be drafted
and discussed at the council's
May 15 meeting. There cur-
rently is no requirement man-
dating city residency,
although all six board mem-
ber currently serving are city
residents.

Residents asked to
donate blood
SEBRING April blood
donations were very low,
showing that this summer


may bring a blood shortage.
When you think that 60 per-
cent of the population needs
blood, yet 5 percent of the
population donates, that
means one thing shortage!
Did you know that every 3
seconds someone needs a life
saving blood transfusion?
There is close to 100,000
people in Highlands County,
yet we are still begging peo-
ple to come donate blood.
When blood is donated it will
be transfused within 72
hours. The blood goes
through 18 hours of testing
before it is sent to local hos-
pitals. '
Donating blood is one of
the best ways to give back to
your community. Many
restrictions have been lifted.
If you have been told in the
past that you can not donate,


please call our office and ask
again.
Florida's Blood Centers is

Sebring (across from Quality
Inn). It is open from 8 a.m. to
4 p.m. Monday, Tuesdays,

Law Day Essay and Poster Contest Winners


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
Florida Supreme Court Justice Raoul G. Cantero III spoke to
students about their essays and posters entered into a contest
for Law Day.
He told them Monday how important freedom was, and then


"Liberty under law: Empowering Youth, Assuring Democracy."
Eighth-grader Megan Darr learned there are lots of ways to teach
people about democracy.
"We need to pass on democracy from one generation to another,"
she said. "Teachers need to talk about it in school and pass it on to
students."


described for them the situation his parents had to flee in Cuba. Darr's essay focused on assuring democracy by making sure it
"Imagine your parents telling you to put all your belongings in a was passed from one generation to the next.

His family gave up everything to come to America, he said, and strewn across the floor.
the students were beginning to grasp that fact, and more important- "The theme is order and disorder," Gooding said oT his poster.
ly, why. "We are disorganized, but we will be able to parry on democracy."
The Law Day essay and poster contest featured the theme The essays placing first in the individual divisions are as follows:


Abigail Campbell
Age 8, Second Grade, Lake Country Elementary
The Bill of Rights is an important document. It has
10 amendments. These amendments keep us safe by
protecting our freedom. The first amendment guaran-
tees the freedom of religion, freedom of assembly and
the freedom of speech. The amendment help us in
many ways.
To begin with, the Bill of Rights guarantees free-
dom of religion. That is important because the gov-
ernment should hot tell us who to worship. In some
countries, people are killed or severely punished for
worshipping a God they were not told to worship. In
these countries they do not have freedom of religion.
After that, the .Bill of Rights also guarantees free-
dom of f enrly. Freedom of assembly means we.
have the right to gather together We have the right to
- gather for games, to gather for church and last, to


gather for clubs. We can do all these things without
fear from our government. In some countries they do
not enjoy these rights.
Finally, the Bill of Rights guarantees freedom of
speech. Freedom of speech means we have the right
to say what we want to say. But we have to be careful
of what we say. For example, we can disagree with
our leaders but we cannot go into a building and
scream "fire" if there is none. In some countries peo-
ple cannot openly disagree with their leaders.
In conclusion, the Bill of Rights is clearly impor-
tant. These amendments to our constitution keep us
safe from a bad government. The first amendment
guarantees freedom of. speech, freedom of assembly
and freedom of religion.
Dominique Julano ....
Age 11, Fifth Grade, Sun 'N Lake Elementary
Most people in the United States don't appreciate


laws. But if we did, not have laws, we would have no
freedom. Freedom is what makes America, well ...
America. It is the peoples' rights. So without laws we
would have no freedom at all. Laws also give us free-
dom of speech, our rights of equality and they give us
protection.
Freedom of speech is very important to the people
of America. You may not notice it but you voice your
opinion more than once every day. You voice your
opinion at home and whenever someone asks you a
question, you can say what you want. It may not be
nice, but you can voice your opinions without having
to go to whoever and ask, "Can I say Blah, Blah, Blah,
about so and so." It lets you say what you want with-
out being punished for it. You can scream at the top
of your lungs "I hate the President and the FBI and the
-SWAT team won't be on to you. Freedom of speech

Who will stand in the 'baby boomer' breach?
Not many babies were born during World War II,
from about 1941 to 1945. Victory in Europe and in
Japan sent thousands of soldiers home and the infa-
mous Baby Boom began.
Nearly 78 million babies later, the baby boom gen-
eration is about to leave behind a legacy of creativity
and of progress in more areas of our culture than has
any previous generation.
The generation is about 44 million strong, this great
population discrepancy creating a nationwide debate
about how to add more taxpaying workers to support
the Social Security Administration's, charter with
qualifying retirees.
In her essay, "Principled Immigration," published
by the Institute on Religion and Public Life, Harvard
Law School Professor Mary Ann Glendon suggests,
"Now for the first time, the world finds itself in an
age of great movements of people. And once again,
the United States is confronted with the challenge of
absorbing large numbers of newcomers."
Glendon isn't the only one who has noticed the
movement of Latin Americans coming across the
United States-Mexican border, but she sits back and
thinks about what this flowing work force means as it
enters this nation at a rate of about a million a year. A
demographic study of these immigrants shows them
fundamentally Christian, rooted in family values, and
most make good neighbors, she reported.
Glendon doesn't come right out and say it, but she
does introduce an idea. It caught our attention when
she suggested instead of railing against millions of
Latin American immigrants, by signing them up to
pay Social Security taxes, the workforce surplus,
needed to keep this historic safety net in place could
continue.
It might be worth thinking about, signing up all
these Latin Americans here to pay taxes and help sup-
port the next generation of retirees. Social Security is
a pretty good investment if we can hire enough peo-
ple to pay for it.
Glendon makes a good point just another
thought to consider.



Religion makes sense


in its proper context


No one suggests
the Pentagon author-
ize the troops to
march for six days
around Baghdad and
then march on the
seventh day with
trumpets blown and
watch the walls fall
down.
During a severe
drought, no one sug-
gests taking a shep-
herd's staff and
firmly strike a rock

so water would pour out and
quench the thirst.
And when a tornado
descends, no one repeats the
discussion God and Job had
thousands of years ago.
A friend of mine takes
Time magazine, and this
week's cover story teases to
an article titled "Why We
Should Teach the Bible in
Public School."
I devoured the article.
And now there's a book
out about Biblical illiteracy.
In one of the more reli-
gious nations, most people
cannot name the writers of
the Bible's gospel writers ...
Matthew, Mark, Luke and
John.
And fewer can quote one
of the Beatitudes from the
Sermon on the Mount.
So, as a consequence,
some people are proposing
that religious history be
taught in public schools -
the stories contained in the
Bible, in their context.
Right away, members of
other religions want their
sacred writing taught, too.
After all, this is a secular
Constitution, government and
church as separated as is rea-
sonably possible. After the
Dark Ages, the Founding
Fathers were not about to
return to married kings,
queens and political leaders.
America would never be
ruled by religious zealots,
and so far we've done pretty


well. It's still a
nation in which its
people can worship
or not worship God,
as they choose, and
the political issues
are mostly about
infrastructure and
helping people in
need.
I was fortunately
born into a religious
family where I was
encouraged to study


everything and
explore it all, read and study
the major religions, and
come to my own conclusions.
This religious literacy pro-
posal and writing project
interests me, because both
the Time article and the tele-
vision interview with the
book's author focused on
context ... what God might
have said at a certain time to
a certain situation, not neces-
sarily to tell the Pentagon to
blow their trumpets to make
the Baghdad walls fall down.
Just because it happened in
Jericho doesn't mean that
particular action of God is
going to happen just the
same way again. Sure, the
walls came "tumbling down,"
but as my grandfather said to
me in the garden at dawn
when I was 8 years old, "It's
not important to be right
about everything, it's only
important to be right about
the right things."
I think this is a wonderful
idea bring them all on,
teaching the Bible, the Koran
and all the others, but at the
end of the day, the Judaic
Christian Bible is the only
one that presents a savior.
I hope they do teach reli-
gion in public schools. Teach
them all, but don't preach
and don't interpret. Just teach
religion and let the spirit go
where it may.

Sun writer.

Declare war on Mexico
Editor:
The violations of America's sover-
eignty for more than 50 years by
Mexico. The promotion of illegals from
all over the world includingMexicans to
violate our borders. The onslaught of
illegal drugs from all over the world,
using Mexico as the conduit for all of
the illegal traffic. The promotion of ille-
gal voting to destroy our electoral
process.
Those in our government who have
been bought by illegal drug money and
the illegal monies earned who use this
illegal work force, should be asked to
give up their elected office. Many pub-
lic officials in high places have violated
the laws by aiding and abetting illegals.
The likelihood of destroying our
financial system in this nation by
exporting many jobs to foreign nations
and also flooding our own work force
with illegals and guest workers who
work cheaper than our middle class,
who they have displaced by the mil-
lions;,. white collar, blue collar jobs and
as many suggest are jobs that Americans
will not do, which is not true. The presi-
dent of these United States and The
American Chamber of Commerce are
lying when they repeat this lie. What
both are doing besides lying to the pub-
lic is aiding and abetting criminals for
profit.
There is a firestorm brewing over the
allowing of Mexico to violate our sover-
eignty, those who are aiding and abet-
ting criminals, those in public office and
those of multi-national corporations
who are aiding these criminals had bet-
ter take notice. Many middle class
workers will be looking at foreclosure
on their properties. They have already
lost pensions and healthcare due to the
flooding of our workforce with illegal
cheap labor.
Those illegals and all those who pro-
mote them take notice. The violation of
our sovereignty will not stand, as a wise
man once stated, you reap what you
sow.
Write your senator and ask him to
represent the American people and not a
foreign power. To do less is criminal
and a violation of his oath of office.
Treason charges should be filed against
those who aid and abet.

Nation is playing word games
Editor:
It isn't news to you, me or anyone
else that we have a rebel in the White
House.
The first four years George W. Bush
was appointed by the Supreme Court
because members were indebted to the
Republican party for their jobs.
In the 2004 election, the Republican
party was reminiscent of a dog returning
to his vomit.
(In) 2007 we find the Republican
party, has cast its pearls before swine
only to learn the American people have
been trampled and the hogs have turned
again to rend us. So what do we do
when we hire people, paying them for
above what they are worth.
Yet those same people will not obey
our orders, break our laws, lie to us and
steal from us?
What did we do to Nixon and his
group of thieves? We impeached them!


When Bill Clinton stole a kiss what
did we do? We impeached him!
What have we done about George W.
Bush and Dick Cheney lying to the
whole world, killing hundreds of thou-
sands of men, women and children,
killing our own and wounding others by
the thousands? We play word games and
chicken.
What has become of our guts to do
the right thing? Why have we not
impeached both Bush and Cheney?
(Now) 2008 looms on the horizon as
,we watch the line up of the "pack," all
waiting to continue the Bush war.
If enough unknowledgable
Republicans get their way, we will keep
right on mourning our dead and building
wheelchairs.
America chose to attack innocent
families in the dead of the night that
were absolutely no threat to us. So tell
me, how do these Republicans justify
' their vanity of what the world might say
if we lose the war! Oh foolish board
room heroes, you have already lost the
war. The war was lost the day the first
shot was fired.
Bring our people home and humble
yourselves before God Almighty. At
least salvage a rag-tag National Guard
out of what is left of our military.
The hurricanes and tornadoes are
coming. That's no lie.

Grief counseling a new
growth industry
Editor:
For thousands of years dealing with
grief and consoling the bereaved has
been the province of family, friends and
clergy. Some societies have formalized
the process by providing a format or
procedure to be followed, relieving
those involved of difficult decisions at
a time of extreme stress. The Irish wake
and the Jewish shiva are but two exam-
ples of such procedures.
The bereaved are surrounded by years
of tradition, the roles of the clergy and
custom helping them to make an appro-
priate adjustment, to console them while
paying due respect to the deceased
according to time honored custom.
Every primitive culture from the Apache
to the Zulu developed a mechanism for
dealing with grief.
Animals also grieve, it is not solely
humankind who suffer with loss. I have
heard the piteous cry of a bird, one of
those who mate for life, when her com-
panion was shot by a stupid boy testing
his new killing toy. I have seen a cat,
torn by the loss of a friend killed by a
passing car lie close by the body for
some long minutes, refusing to be
moved away.
In recent years unfortunate inroads
were made in the processes of death,
burial and grief. In 1963 Jessica Mitford
wrote a book entitled "The American
Way of Death," a succinct review of
which, said it "... chronicled, in exhais-
tive detail, the concerted efforts of
American funeral providers to wring as
much money as possible out of the
bereaved." Funeral providers advertise
in local newspapers of the availability
of "full service funeral packages" while
insurance salesmen advise the aged ,that
the average cost of funerals in the
United States is $6,000, suggesting
additional coverage to spare the family


the economic grief attendant with losing
a loved one.
Now the grief counseling professional
has entered the scene, a new growth
industry to rival the funeral directors for
officious arrogance. Grief counseling,
once a function performed by friends
and clergy, has risen to a professional
status, college degrees up to and includ-
ing doctorate's are now offered in the
fine art of comforting those who have
sustained a loss. We are confronted with
an entity called "The Academy of Grief
Counseling," which has established cer-
tification standards and published hand-
books and field manuals, less any
unqualified and uncertified individual,
dares to offer solace to one in pain.
There is a "Celtei fdf Loss" Web site
as well as grief counseling hotlines.
Something called "The Association for
Death Education and Counseling" holds
an annual convention, attendance limit-
ed to those who have completed a pre-
requisite intermediate course or have
equivalent credits.
All of this suggests that we have been
doing it wrong for thousands of years,
heartlessly leaving those in extremus,
without succor or compassion. The
much admired entrepreneurial spirit,
never one to miss an opportunity, has
rushed to the rescue, saving the nation
from blindly wallowing in needless
grief to say nothing of adding yet .anoth-
er unnecessary charge, to the outlandish.
cost of closure.
Grieving is a part of loving, reconcili-
ation to loss and saying goodbye. It
does not require surgical detachment
less we remain too long in gentle rever-
ie as we readjust to a new reality; the
pain etches a memory to cherish. It is a
concomitant of love and affection, so
much a part of nature that it is an
offense to regard it as a manifestation of
a disease or some maladjustment requir-
ing tinkering by some self-proclaimed
expert.

Establishing democracy is
not military's mission
Editor:
Being a retired Marine of 24 years, I
have mixed feelings about the war in
Iraq. One thing I would like to remind
all is that the military service members
completed their initial mission success-
fully when they toppled Saddam
Hussein. This must be remembered
utmost by all.
Somehow along the way, I believe
people have forgotten about the comple-
tion of their mission, but somehow they
were given an unwritten mission of
establishing a democracy, which is not
the mission of the military, it is the mis-
sion of the State Department
(Condoleeza Rice's responsibility),
which is who's failing the mission. The
military is trying to keep some type of
peace in hopes that the State
Department will get off their butts and
do their job.
Why is the chaos now? It is probably
because some fool felt they could com-
pletely disband all government leader-
ship and the military and build it from
scratch, without sending enough troops
to secure the country. There is a very
big difference in the initial mission and
keeping the peace. Anybody who has

spent any significant amount
of time in the military knows
it takes years in order to
build an effective military
from scratch. I don't blame
the military. The leaders tried
to bring more forces in the
beginning, but the civilian
leadership felt they didn't
need it.
I believe in the
Commander in Chief philoso-
phy, but that doesn't mean
the President has ultimate
power of the military's goals
and missions. Congress has
the responsibility of going to
war and setting the goals for
the country, not one person.
It is the president's responsi-
bility to carry out the desires
of the people and the direc-
tion of Congress, it is not the
president's responsibility to
decide the goals and if it is in
writing that way, then it
needs to change.
Having said this, it proba-
bly is not a good idea to
make an immediate with-
drawal, but having a timeline
or plan to remove forces is a
good idea. We need to think
about what Iraq would look
like if we think in a year
from now we might not be
able to remove most of our
forces. We need to tell Maliki
that his forces need to be in
the front of all of our forces,
that we are not going to fight
all of his battles. The best
that the president did was
agree to increase the size of
the Army and Marines, they
were down-sized too much
and we rely way too much on
the National Guard and
reserves.
The Iraq war is not going
to solve our terrorism issues
in the world; we need to use
covert and special operations
(black,ops) to combat terror-
ism.

AARP needs to think
of those here
Editor:.
had. the priyil ge to hear
- a speaker from the AARP and
in the speaker's presentation
the speaker told of the power
of AARP to get legislation
passed.
In .the presentation of
health care, it was mentioned
that many children and adults
do not have health care. This
got my dander up, and I
asked the speaker why does
not AARP get legislation
passed to stop all funding to
the United Nations and give
those funds to pay for all
those children and adults
without health care. *
Absolutely not, why AARP
only goes after legislation
that every member of AARP
wants.
OK in the speech she said
there is power in letter writ-
ing to get what you want...
OK, the United Nation
members hate United States'
guts, loves our money. Then
why do not all of we mem-
bers of the AARP write to the
AARP that we want action of
taking the money from the
United Nations and give it to
those unfortunate children
and adults who we are to
love, protect, and give quali-
ty life.
Billions of dollars go to
the United Nation and we get
nothing but hatred and it now
time to think of those in
United States and stop worry-
ing about the rest of the
world.
According to this speaker
all we have to do is have 100
percent of the AARP mem-
bers want AARP to back our
wishes up and we will get
action from the AARP.
This is a little more impor-
tant than getting a discount to
save us money. Getting out of
the United Nations and giv-
ing that funding to the those


without health insurance is a
better way of serving our
country and our unfortunate
children and adults that need
this health care so desperate-
ly.
What do you think are the
chances if every member
asked the AARP to support
this legislation to get out of
the United Nations and give
this money to those unfortu-

Absolutely not, all AARP

sentative, without pay, to go
around arousing your atten-
tion of how terrible the
United States is that we are
letting people in this wealthy
country go without health
care, and has no solution to
the problem.

Broadway special was
obvious hit

Over these many (I believe
it's 27) years that I have been
a season ticket holder of the
Highlands Little Theatre, I
never cease to be amazed and
entertained. I just saw their
"special" show, "Broadway
in Concert," and to sell-out
crowds it was obvious it was
a hit.

have seen, impressing us.

with their "acting." This time
it was their "singing." They
did songs from seven
Broadway shows, and we fell
in love with all of the cast
over and over again.
I will not mention any one
performer because each was a
compliment to the other and
their songs brought back
memories. It looked like they
enjoyed and had fun with it
all, and they sure brought joy
to their audience. So on
behalf of all us lucky people,
thank you so much.

Continued from 9A
helps to get news around and allows
other people to express their opin-
ion about other peoples' ideas.
Equal rights is another thing laws
bring to the table. If we didn't have
equal rights, we would still have
slaves and I'm sure our African
American neighbors would not like
that at all. Women would be home-
bound because they would not be
allowed to vote and they would not
be allowed to do a huge amount of
things like going to school and get-
ting an education or playing on a
sports team. Pretty much women
would be looking at a life of nothing
but cooking, cleaning and taking
care of the home. Laws given
women the rights to do what they
want. Equal rights also aid us in tri-
als. No matter what you have done
in the past, you will always be treat-
ed with the same respect.
Protection, you may take it for
granted, but it is extremely impor-
tant. Truthfully, I believe Americans
are spoiled with protection. Even the
simplest of things have some sort of
protection from intruders. In this
case, the intruder would be a little
brother and he's trying to break into,
his older sister's diary; but it's
locked. Our cars and some homes
have alarms to notify someone if,
there is an intruder. America has
police officers to enforce the laws
which help keep us safe from com-
plete chaos. People would be able to
get away with dangerous acts that
could-hurt the people around them.
If there were no laws to keep people
from wandering into peoples'
homes doing whatever they please,
they could murder someone and get
away with it too. You couldn't do a
thing about it because you aren't
allowed to have weaponry in your
home. So laws let us keep firearms
in our homes for protection if a dan-
gerous intruder should barge in.
Really, without protection, you
wouldn't.even be safe in your own
home.
Freedom is a beautiful thing to
live with, but we would not have it
unless we have laws which bring us
freedom of speech, equal rights and
protection, which are just a few of
the many advantages laws give us.

Liberty Under Law: Preparing
Youth, Assuring Democracy.
"Liberty under Law" What exact-
ly does that mean? It basically
means that you have different rights.
and freedtgs. All of t re right.,
though, are N ted by laws. For
example, some different rights that
you have are freedom of speech and
freedom of religion. Freedom of
speech gives American citizens the
right to speak out with their own
beliefs and not get in trouble by
doing it. For instance, in other coun-
tries, if you speak your own opin-
ions like we can in America, you can
get arrested for doing it. Freedom of
religion gives American citizens the
right to choose their own religion
and what they want to believe. For
example, in other countries, you
have to believe one set religion and
set of beliefs and if you don't, you
can be arrested or even killed. The
Constitution gives us many different
rights that are all protected by laws.
One thing that is a problem though
is that the rights need to be passed
on from generation to generation.
The next thing that our genera-
tion has to do is prepare our youth
so they can pass on the information
to the generations to come. In order
to do this, our schools need to be
educating their students in these
areas. For example, in social studies
classes, the teachers need to be
teaching their students about the
constitution and the Bill of Rights.
One of the topics we have learned
about is the Bill of Rights. The Bill of
Rights
the freedoms and rights that
American citizens have, such as
Right to Bear Arms. Having the right
to bear arms gives American citi-
zens the right to contain firearms on
their property. Another right the Bill
of Rights contains is the Right to a
Fair and Speedy Trial. When an
American citizen commits some
type of crime, this gives them the
right to have a trial that won't take
very long. Also, the trial will be fair
meaning that the jury's decisions
will be based on evidence. So, the
teachers need to be teaching their
students about the Constitution and
the rights, but what is the outcome
of this? The outcome of this is that
it gives our country a chance to
ensure a democracy.
The result of doing all these
things is for our country to endure
democracy. Our generation needs to
continue the democracy for our
country because without democra-


cy, our country would be pure
chaos. With democracy, we have
laws that protect us, but without
democracy, the laws wouldn't be
there to protect us. Without laws to
protect us, who knows what could
happen to anyone? Without laws,
anyone could do anything and not
be punished for doing it. For exam-
ple, someone could just get away
with mass murder and just go on a
killing spree and not stop because
they are not getting punished for
committing one of the biggest
crimes. So, you see that without
democracy, there would be no laws
and with no laws, then there would
be complete chaos. So in other


words, we need to prepare our
youth to pass on the democracy so
the country would not be utter
chaos. Who would want to live here
if there was?
Jessica Williams, 12th Grade,
Sebring High School
Day after day, year after year,
Democracy in America is getting
less and less defined. Personal lib-
erties are slowly being taken away
and liberty defined under the law is
becoming more and more ambigu-
ous. It is up to the future generation
to assure the democracy in America
and to save liberty. It is up to the
current generation, however, to
teach the youth of today how impor-
tant they will be in maintaining the
coexistence of democracy and free-


dom. With more law education, his-
tory of our founding fathers and
knowledge of what a true democra-
cy is, the youth of today will be able
to save this country from becoming
a dictatorship, or worse, a commu-
nist country.
The problem with America today
is that too few people know the law.
I'm not talking about the simple
rules of the road and of crimes. I'm
talking about personal liberty laws
defined in the Constitution. The
Constitution lays down our personal
freedoms and what the government
can and cannot do. This knowledge
would enable the youth to receive
full liberty when they become adults
and try and enforce the laws. It will
also teach them the differences

between privileges and rights and it
might make them appreciate all that
they get and use, not abuse, their
privileges.
However, the youth will not care
about preserving their freedom
unless they know about their roots.
If they knew more about the found-
ing fathers and what the founding
fathers did to secure our freedom in
this country, then they would be
more appreciative of their purpose.
The founding fathers wrote the
Articles of Confederation, which
was later amended into the
Constitution to secure the freedom
of the people of the United States of
America. Many men died for our
rights. Many people put a lot of
thought into the Declaration of


Independence and the Constitution
so that not one in office could
become too powerful. If we give
them the building blocks to secure
their freedom, then fundamentals
turn into fun and a better job will get
done to prolong democracy.
Democracy can be defined as to
the people, for the people, by the
people. Children need to be taught
about other countries and the rules
that they have to live by. They need
to know about dictatorships, com-
munism, monarchies and other
ways people rule their country. They
would see that democracy is the
best leadership role and they would
want to preserve it. They would see
that the other ways of rule are cruel
and unjust. The earlier the education


isprvde o h suensteWWI


is provided to the students, the bet-
ter because they will be able to base
their opinions on good knowledge,,
not just what their parents think.
Teaching the youth of today'
about democracy and teaching them
the laws will teach them to think for
themselves, which is something
that this country is lacking. People
do not vote because they have no
substance as to what each candi-
date's platform represents. This
country is taking more and more of
our personal liberties away and is
becoming less and less democratic.
Knowledge of the founders of this
country and the laws of the land
needs to be instilled in the youthful
minds of today: "Preparing Youth,
Assuring Democracy."

Surfing to steeplechase history, the 'cross country of horse racing @ i

everyone's a wee bit Irish during horse races.
One of the many gifts the Irish have given
us over the years is horse racing and racing
pedigrees. Steeplechase racing is an example

Church in Doneraile. Church steeples were
the most prominent, and tallest, landmarks on
the landscape. Though history did not record
the winner of the O'Callaghan-Blake race, the
sport took its name from this simple 'chase to
the steeple.' Cross-country match races
spread to England, where the first reported
race involving more than two horses occurred
in 1792. Steeplechasing then migrated to
established race courses. ...

Diversions


Acting and dialogue


shine in Fracture'


There's a lot to like about
"Fracture."
The film has all the charac-
teristics of an enjoyable cine-
matic experience a strong
cast, an engaging plotline,
and surprising twists and
turns throughout that keep the
story interesting. The movie
is never quite what you think
it is, which is something nice
and rare in this age of pre-
dictable and far-fetched films.
Unfortunately, "Fracture"
has flown slightly under the
radar, especially with all the
big movies (like "Spider-Man
3" and "Shrek the Third")
that are coming out soon. But
despite the lack of hype,
"Fracture" is a movie worth
seeing.
The film is centered around
Ted Crawford (Anthony
Hopkins) and Willy Beachum
(Ryan Gosling), two men
whose lives could not be
more different.
Crawford is an airplane
engineer who shoots his wife
Jennifer (Embeth Davidtz) in
an act of cold-blooded
revenge after discovering
she's having an affair. After
Crawford guns down his wife,
the police, led by Detective
Rob Nunally (Billy Burke),
arrive at the scene of the
crime.
But Nunally isn't the best
person to be involved in
Crawford's capture and arrest
- because the detective was
Mrs. Crawford's secret lover.
Crawford is arrested by
Nunally after admitting to the
shooting. He even produces a
signed confession, which
makes it an open-and-shut
case. Except, of course, that it
isn't.
This is where Willy
Beachum comes in. Beachum
is a highly successful Los
Angeles district attorney who
is preparing to move into a
new job at a high-powered
law firm. He's a week away
from leaving the D.A.'s
office, and he takes the
Crawford case because it's
going to be quick and easy;
losing just isn't possible.
Except losing is possible,
because an easy victory
would be too simple. And
nothing-about "Fracture" is
simple.
Gosling's performance is
nothing short of brilliant -
which is no surprise to any-
one who saw his Oscar-nomi-

nated performance in last
year's "Half Nelson." His
turn as the conflicted
Beachum in "Fracture" is
almost as good. Few actors
are as adept at subtle facial
expressions and meaningful
silences as Gosling, who is
rapidly turning into one of
today's best leading men.
Hopkins is at his full,
Hannibal Lecter-esque best in
"Fracture" nobody plays
smarmy, slightly creepy intel-
ligence quite as well. The
movie is, at its core, Gosling
versus Hopkins both from a
storyline and acting perspec-
tive, and the interplay
between the two is tense,
exciting, and, at times, even
amusing.
My one complaint about
the film is the completely
unnecessary love story sub-
plot between Beachum and
his future boss Nikki Gardner
(Rosamund Pike). The inter-
play between the two, while
interesting, is essentially
pointless in relation to the
bigger story of the film.
And to make matters
worse, the romance is com-
pletely dropped as the film
gets closer to its end. In hind-
sight, it seems as if the love
story was forced for the pur-
pose of simply having a'love
story in the film and
"Fracture" doesn't need a
love affair storyline to be
interesting.
But despite the pointless
romantic subplot, "Fracture"
is a film that moves along at
a brisk pace with characters
that are well developed and
interesting. The film's
denouement is surprising yet

With artificial ditches,
hedges, and other obstacles
over which the horses must
jump; 2. a point-to-point
race; and, 3. a foot race run
on a cross-country course or
over a course having obsta-
cles, as ditches, hurdles, or
the like, which the runners
must clear.
Also interesting to me is
that the steeplechase is also
an Olympic event for
humans, starting at the 1900
Games. Runners of the
standard course face a total
of seven water jumps and 28
hurdling jumps (www.britan


nica. com/eb/article-

Two of my favorite books
that I still reread are: "The
Black'Stallion" by Walter
Farley (1941) and "Black
Beauty: The Autobiography
of a Horse" by Anna Sewell
(1877). Farley wrote 21
books about The Black and
his progeny. Sewell's novel
was her only published work
and became a textbook on
prevention of cruelty to ani-
mals.

The second time around


Newspaper ad led to another chance at love


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
W hen Johnny and
Linda Riggs
met and mar-
ried 10 years
ago, it was the second time
around for each of them.
Johnny was retired from a
20-year career with
Nationwide Insurance and
had been divorced a few
years. He'd been sitting
around, watching TV, spend-
ing time with his two dogs
and taking care of the yard.
He finally felt ready to date
again, but found it difficult to
meet an eligible woman.
One Sunday, he was read-
ing the News-Sun classified
and decided to place an ad.
He was emphatic that it run
near grocery ads. The news-
paper insisted he list a post
office box for his own safety.
He meticulously asked advice
from his friends for writing it
and finally placed a quarter-
page ad for his special lady
in October of 1996.
Linda didn't even see the
ad when it ran. Besides, she
wasn't really interested. She
was divorced with three
daughters: an 18-year-old at
the University of Central
Florida and a 16- and 14-


year-old still
living at
home.
"An
employee
showed me
the ad and
told me to
write him. I
slipped it into
my purse and
forgot about it
pntil I was
cleaning it out
one day.
"I figured
why not? In
my letter I
listed all the
reasons why I
wouldn't be
the right one
for him: I still had kids at
home and I worked all the
time. However, because it's
so difficult to meet someone,
I suggested we get together
and say hi," Linda said.
By this time, Johnny had
taken several ladies. to lunch,
even some much older ones
who sounded interesting.
"Then I received Linda's
letter, which had been written
on a dot matrix printer and
was barely readable," he said.
"I wrote her a scathing letter,
making fun of her outdated
printer. She responded this


time not on
that dot
matrix printer
that I was
rude and
unkind,"
Johnny said.
They final-
ly arranged
for a date and
Johnny picked
her up at
work and took
her to lunch at
Chili's.
m "We really
hit it off,"
Linda said.
"Later I called'
to invite him
to be my driv-
ing compan-
ion on a daytime trip to
Sarasota. He informed me
he'd already found his spe-
cial lady. We agreed it would
still be great for us to be
friends. In fact, I was much
more at ease with him, know-
ing there would be no pres-
sure.
"We got along so well that
he broke up with his special
lady. The next week, he
asked me to marry him and
two weeks later we were
married on Dec. 21. I've
never done anything as crazy
as this in my life," Linda


said.
Linda's advice is to be
open to new ideas, to not be
so regimented and to consid-
er possibilities. Be flexible.
Friends and church family
are still the safest and best
recommendations.
"Of course I had a list of
things I wanted in a man -
and didn't want," Linda said.
"I'm a non-smoker and at the
time, Johnny was a smoker. It
was a hard struggle for him
until he finally quit. I wanted
tall, dark and handsome. I got
short, rounder and older. But
his special quality was his
great sense of humor. He
made me laugh. It's funny
how love appears in strange
ways."
Johnny insists that the
requirements listed in his ad
were merely suggestions.
"There was just something
about Linda. It's not just one
things It's a combination of
her personality. Everyone .
likes her and she has a myri-
ad of capabilities. She's
always positive and able to
see the bright side. We've
.been together all of the time
for the past 10 years and we
.have had few squabbles at
work or home," he said.
Today they both work
together and own Sebring

Signs. For their 10th anniver-
sary they took a trip to Spain
and a cruise to Portugal.
"It was relaxed and won-
derful, the best trip of my
life," Linda said. "We go, to


Hawaii yearly, since Johnny
used to live there. Now that
the girls are out of school
and not living with us, we're
able to travel more. There's
so much to look forward to."

Streaks getting ready for Riverdale


News-Sun photo by DANIEL HOEHNE
Sebring left fielder Nick Maloyed makes sure to keep his eye on the ball as he 'squares it up'
during batting practice.


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne @newssun.comrn
SEBRING The Sebring Blue Streaks got
what they wanted, a home game for their
regional semifinal tonight at 7 p.m. but
what head coach Hoppy Rewis said after the
team's win over Bartow is certainly the case.
"We'd prefer to have Riverdale so we can
play it here," he had said. "But, obviously,
whoever we get, it will be a good team we'll
be facing."
The alternative would
have been going on the 'The d
road to face highly tout- Ultij
ed Naples, 23-3 and being stron

2, extra-inning loss to
Riverdale. play
But now they have to
face the team that was HOPPY
able to knock off
Naples, so it must be .a
pretty good squad in its
own right.
The Raiders (19-9) certainly boast a talent-
ed legacy in Bo Greenwell, son of former
major leaguer Mike Greenwell, who batted
.487 on the regular season and was perfect on
the basepaths with 17 steals in as many
attempts.
"But he had 38 hits and however many
other times reaching base," Rewis said. "So ,


it's not automatic that he'll be running every
time."
Rewis also warned his troops about
Riverdale's 'trick plays.'
"In a bunt situation, they will be very
aggressive and send everybody charging in,"
he said. "It can be distracting to the batter
who's focus might switch to the defense
instead of the ball. And with all the players
charging and moving, the baserunners have to
be careful, because they'll bring in an out-
fielder to cover a base -
basically, when they do all
erence is that, they're going for a
with your pickoff, so our runners
Shave to be paying atten-
ugh 16th tion."
But other than the talk
er' and strategies discussed
before Thursday's practice,
REWIS the routine on the field and
in the cages remained the
same.
"Every teams top four
players kind of cancel each other out, because
the good teams all have a few real good play-
ers at the top," Rewis explained. "The differ-
ence is being strong with your fifth through
16th players, that's what will set you apart."
And so the Blue Streaks (24-4) took their
cuts, shagged their flies and worked it around
the infield keeping everyone sharp and on
top of their game.


KENTUCKY DERBY CHALLENGER HAS



SEBRING CONNECTION


;' SEBRING --The crowd-at this \ear's Mobil 1
12 Hours of Sebring had an opportunity\ to see
the Tafel Racing Porsches in their ALMS debut.
Saturday, race fans will have an opportunity to
see another entry from the Tafel Racing stable in
an equally famous race.
However, this will be a different kind of
horsepower. Instead of a Porsche 997, it will be
the thoroughbred Street Smart appearing at
Churchill Downs in the 2007 edition of the
Kentucky Derby.
The three year old colt is projected to be one
this year's top horses in the "run for the roses."'
He is owned by James Tafel, father of Tafel
Racing's Jim Tafel who made hlis American Le
Mans Series debut here less than three months
ago,,
"Dad named the horse Street Sense because
he said I didn't have any," Tafel of his father's
four-legged contender. Tafel made the comment
at the annual ALMS Wheels Down Winter Test at
Sebring in January when asked about the fami-
ly's horse racing pursuit.
Tafel the Younger has been a hard charger in
the ALMS GT2 division, taking their first podi-
um finish last month in the street race at
Houston.
Street Sense also is a winner, having already
won the most important race for two year olds --
the Breeders Cup Juvenile at Churchill Downs
last.November.
Closer to home, the dark brown colt was first
at the wire in the Tampa -Derby in February. The
winning time of 1:43.11 broke the track record
for 1 1/16 miles by .02 seconds.

Delaney shortstop Brody Carr can't quite make the tag as
Hoffner's Matthew Grubb steals second base Thursday night
in Dixie League action as Lake Placid Delaney handed
Hoffner's its first loss of the season.


La.;t month, he was edged by
Dominican in a wild finish at the Toyota
Bluegrass at Keenland -- the final prep race
before the derby. Less than a neck separat-
ed the first four finishers in the seven-
horse field.
"Every time he ran straight he would
get the lead then he would duck in and lose
the lead and then he would get the lead and.
lose it again," said trainer Carl Nafzger.
"He finished good and finished strong. I
think his learning process is over."
Reportedly, many now see Street Sense
as the favorite to wear the roses this year,
pointing to is growth both in running and
in stature. However, it won't be a cake
walk. The colt will be trying to end two of
the Derby's longest jin\e,: no Breeders
Cup Juvenile winner has ever gone on to
win the Derby and no 2-year-old champion .
has won since Spectacular Bid in 1979.
While Street Sense has been preparing
for the Kentucky Derby, Jim Tafel and his .'.'
crew of drivers have had their Porsches at '
Road Atlanta, getting ready for the ALMS
race in Utah.
Despite the fact that James and Jim
Tafel have taken different roads to racing,
father James said he sees more than a few
parallels.
"The grace, speed and abilities of these '-.
animals is very much like a high perform-
ance sports car but instead of oil and gas it

SEBRING The Lake Placid Delaney
Fence pulled off an upset with a bottom-
of-the-seventh 3-2 win, giving Hoffner's
its first loss of the season in Dixie League
Youth Boys action Thursday night.
Hoffner's struck first, when Del
Corbin Hoffner reached and came
around to score on James Heston's
hit for a 1-0 lead in the second H
inning. Hofl
The lead was doubled in the top
of the third when Spencer Baker
lined a single to right and was
brought home on Matthew Grubbs' RBI
double.
But the Delaney squad bounced back in
its half of the third, scoring twice to even
things up.
Dustin Whitmire worked a walk and
moved to second on Brody Carr's single.
One out later, and with Whitmire and
Carr on second and third, respectively,

Colby Delaney ripped a single that brought
both runners in for a 2-2 ballgame.
From there, it settled into a pitchers
duel, with Delaney proving to be a power-
house on the mound and striking out seven
Hoffner hitters over the final three innings.
Corbin Hoffner proved just as
ney effective from the fourth through
the sixth, putting matching zeros up
on the scoreboard inning by inning.
With one out in the bottom of the
seventh, Donavan White reached on
an infield hit and when Whitmire
singled to right, things looked good
for Delaney.
White, however, was nabbed at third,
leaving the winning run at first base with
two outs and leaving this one looking
like it was headed for extra innings.
But Carr singled to put runners on first
and second and Dillan Webber-Callahan
worked a base on balls to load the bases.

And Another
Thing...

When the


'race card'


turns up a


Joker
So here we have another
bunch of wasted tax dollars., on
a study that seems to have been
conducted merely to stir up
controversy.
According to an upcoming
paper by a University of
Pennsylvania professor and a
Cornell graduate student, white
referees called fouls against
black players at a higher rate
than they did against white
players.
Their study also found that
black officials called fouls on
white players more frequently
than they did against blacks,
but the disparity wasn't as
great.
First, the study didn't even
consist of watching games. It
was done by going over box
scores and seeing who got
called for fouls and the racial
makeup of the officiating team.
Which specific refs were
calling fouls on which players
could not be determined from
this sort of research.
Second, as Charles Barkley
so succinctly put it, "Seven out
of 10 players in the league are
black, and at any time it's nine
out of 10 players on the floor."
So let's say Dwayne Wade .
drives the lane and makes con-
tact with Amare Stoudamire -
two black players. Is white ref-
eree Steve Javie supposed to
call a foul on Steve Nash, who
was over on the other side of
the floor for a foul, so he won't
seem biased against the black
players?
Race is such a hot-button
topic in society anyway why
stretch the threads of credibility
so thin with such a poorly
researched, and even thought
out, study?

HISTORY LESSON

10 YEARS AGO
May 1, 1997: Gail Gist and Dot McKinney, golfing at the Highlands Ridge Golf Club, pulled off an
amazing feat of back-to-back holes-in-one. Each of the local golfers used their pitching wedges on the
98-yard, par-3 fourth hole- with Gist hitting in front of the holeand rolling in, followed by quite the cel-
ebration before McKinney amazingly duplicated the feat.
15 YEARS AGO
May 2, 1992: Sebring's Shawn Lenihan moved on to the Class 3A track meet with a win in the 3200
meters during the Region 2-3A meet to qualify. Joining Lenihan in qualifying for the state meet was fel-
low Blue Streak Ryne Dorrell, who placed third in the 800 meters.

Split Grip Drill
Some senior golfers lose swing
Sd iJh due to limited flexibility. A great
drill that helps seniors feel their hands
Sluni-ng more efficiently and find their
%, idth is the split grip drill. Simply sep-
a ratr the right hand down the shaft just
under the grip. As you swing the club
ko%. Iv to the top, you will also begin to
feel not only the wrist hinge, but you
Sdl teel more width in the swing as
I ll. This drill helps you to feel the
Sprpcr width because the hands are
'ep.ar.ted and forces a wider swaine arc.

DIXIE
Continued from ID
Delaney plated Whitmire with
the winning run, and Delaney
Fencing had evened its record
at 3-3, while putting
Hoffner's record at 8-1.
"This is just great,"
Delaney coach Mark Callahan
said. "It was a real team


effort. They (Hoffner) are a
very good team and very well
coached."
"We're pretty inexperi-
enced at a few different posi-
tions, but the kids have done a
great job, are really listening
and getting better," he contin-
ued." It's just been like a big
puzzle and it feels great to see
all the pieces come together."

RACE
Continued from 1D
Barry Bonds does this, too,
claiming that people don't like
him or want him to be the home
run king because he is black.
Forget the fact that Barry's
was just a big jerk who became
a huge jerk when he blew his
body up, allegedly, in order to
put the spotlight back on him.


When Hank Aaron was
chasing the most hallowed
record in sports, the hatred he
faced by those yahoos who did-
n't want him to pass Babe Ruth
is well known.
But Bonds saying that white
baseball fans don't want him, a
black man, breaking a record
held by Hank Aaron, another
black man, because he's a black
man?
I'm not at all suggesting, by


these silly examples, that
racism isn't still a big problem.
As dumb and ridiculous as it
is, there are still plenty who
can't see past how someone
looks in order to judge them;
I just don't like having my
intelligence insulted by studies
that make no sense, and cheat-
ing sluggers trying to get us to
give him a big pity party by stir-
ring it up in cases where it's not
really there.

race day.
"There are many vari-
ables in each," he said.
"There's the track, other
competitors, the weather, all
kinds of things. I've tried to
run my race team like dad
manages his horses -- provid-
ing the proper resources and
hiring the best help possi-
ble."
The similarities don't end
there. The silks worn byq


jockey Calvin Borel will be
the same white, blue and yel-
low seen on the Tafel Racing
Porsches. Borel is one of the
top 30 riders nationally with
better than 4,000 wins and
earnings of more than $6.4
million.
But while the Sebring
race is one of the top
endurance competitions in
the world, the lightning-fast
sprint in Louisville has been
dubbed "The Fastest Two
Minutes in Sports." Fans will
be able to see it Saturday
beginning at 4:30 pm on
NBC-TV.
