Cargill to close plants in Avon Park, Frostproof


Move will cost up to

200 people their jobs
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK The area's high
employment numbers could take a
hit next month as officials of Cargill
Citro have announced the pending
shutdown of the Avon Park and
Frostproof processing plants.
Although some of the nearly 200
employees in the two facilities will
be re-integrated into the company,
most will be in' search of other jobs.


At a meeting Tuesday, company
officials said their workforce would
be released in phases over the next
18 months as Cargill's remaining
customer orders are filled.
Cargill Juice North America
President Tom Abrahamson called it
"an agonizing decision," pointing to
four damaging hurricanes; the spread
of citrus diseases, encroaching real
estate development and declining
demand for 100-percent juices for
the decision to shut down.
"The combination of those events
made it impossible to deliver sustain-
able and acceptable returns," he said.


Highlands County Citrus Growers
Association Executive Director Ray
Royce expressed his disappointment
that the two area plants would be
ceasing operation.
"Cargill has always been a very
supportive member of our associa-
tion so we're sorry to see them exit.
We're also sorry that 150 to 200 peo-
ple between the two plants are going
to loose their jobs. We hope they'll
be able to find good jobs elsewhere,"
he said.
Royce said there had been signs
that Cargill had been preparing to
scale back for some time.


"It's my understanding that they
probably haven't crushed any
oranges for maybe a week now," he
said.
From a growers' standpoint, Royce
said it still was still too early to tell
what the effect of the shut down
might be, especially in light of cur-
rent Florida Department of Citrus
crop numbers which have been down
significantly from the recent past.
"There's still the Tropicana facili-
ty in Bradenton, Southern Gardens in
Clewiston and Donald Duck in Lake
Wales," he said. ."And my under-
standing is that none of them current-


ly are operating at capacity, so they
may be able to absorb those amounts
by running more fruit in a given
day."
That being said, Royce allowed
that should the crop numbers begin
to rise again, the situation could
change.
"Let's just say the crops stay at the
130 to 140 million box range, then
there might not be a need for those
plants. But let's say it moves back up
to the 170 or 180 million boxes, then
it could be very likely those plants

Commissioners

support Istokpoga

deviation request
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Highlands County's
two most popular lakes were discussed
at the commissioners' meeting
Tuesday.
The board approved $77,500 (from
two funding sources) to pay for the
Lake Jackson shoreline restoration
project.
The commissioners also approved a
resolution that, in part, supported South
Florida Water Management District's
Lake Istokpoga deviation request for
downstream water use.
The management district said it
needs the deviation to allow farmers
south of the lake to continue to operate.
Highlands County residents came
out in support and opposition eof the
request Tuesday.
"Right now, we're sort of throwing
in the towel," Lake Placid resident


Steve Foray said,

'I see it as'
a shared
burden. I
don't mind
sharing
with my
neighbors.'

If the Corps.OKs

By approving the resolution, the
commissioners supported the deviation
request, but asked the Corps to not
allow withdrawals on Istokpoga after
June 30 if the lake is lower than the
regulation schedule.
John Zediak, Corps representative,
said he'd bring the resolution and the
community's concern of a $30 million
negative economic impact back to his
office for consideration.

HCSO adds pair of K-9s


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING A pair of
Highlands County Sheriff's Office
recruits in training are scheduled to
hit the streets running in June.
Sheriff Susan Benton introduced
Zeus and Boss on Wednesday. The
European shepherds bring the
department's total K-9 force to
seven. The four bloodhounds -
who are all American, two of them
Floridians plus three shepherds.
Where the bloodhounds are
tracking dogs trained to sniff out
bad guys and missing persons, the
shepherds are multi-purpose.
Zeus and Boss and their han-
dlers, Deps. Tom Fort and Scott
Williams, respectively, are current-
ly undergoing Florida Department


of. Law Enforcement training to
ready them for patrol, where
they'll be used as,an "intermediate
weapon," Lt. Jess Purvis said.
The department has strict rules
for deploying the dogs, as it does
. with other weapons such as the
TAZER or the ASP baton. The
dogs allow the officers to capture a
suspect from a safer distance.
Purvis, who is in charge of the
K-9 unit, said the shepherds cost
from $7,500 to $9,000 depending
on pedigree and level of training.
Most are trained in Europe, where
they're evaluated for their "bite
drive," the instinct to bite once and
hold on until released by their han-
dler.

Donations sought to outfit K-9s in safety vests


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Concerned citizens want to protect the
Highlands County Sheriff's Office's European shep-
herds and American bloodhounds.
About seven months ago, Dixie Lee Burns bumped
into Dep. Ralph Miranda at a Lake Placid deli.
"I asked that deputy if his dog had a vest," Burns
said Wednesday, pointing to Miranda who was with his
K-9 Spike.
When she learned the police dogs didn't have bal-
listic vests, she recruited Coldwell Banker Highlands


Properties Realtors Jeanne Warner and Pete McDevitt
to help raise money to outfit the department's seven K-
9s two of which were introduced Wednesday.during
a press conference.
Burns was moved by the Sept. 28 shooting death of
Polk County Dep. Matt Williams and his K-9 partner
Diogi. A dog lover at heart, she didn't want the same
thing to happen here.
"I just don't want the shepherds to go in (to a situa-
tion) without a vest," Burns said.

Heartland


Triathlon


adds races


for kids
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING The
Heartland Triathlon organiz-
ers said this year's event will
be bigger, better and differ-
ent. But the goal remains the
same a first-class race to
introduce Highlands County
residents to a healthy
lifestyle.
"Our mission is creating
health," said John Harding,
Florida Hospital Heartland
Division president and chief
executive officer, during the
kickoff press conference
Wednesday.
Harding acknowledged the
medical community's health
care role, but stressed that
lifestyle choices during the
first half of one's life dictate
medical needs during the sec-
ond half.
He warned of an increase
in childhood diabetes and
other diseases common to
older folk. As title sponsor of
the 2007 Heartland Triathlon,
Harding was pleased that it
will include races for chil-
dren.
The TriKidz races begin
after the adult races end.
Juniors, ages 6-10, will swim
100 yards, bike 3 miles and
run half of a mile. Seniors,
11-14, will double that 200
yards, 6 miles and 1 mile,
respectively.
"They are very fun," Lucas
High, a two-triathlon veteran,
said of the kids' races.
Following. in his father's
foot steps, 8-year-old Lucas
made his public-speaking
debut Wednesday to promote
the three-sport race.
Patrick High, the 2004
male triathlete of the year,
recently qualified for his
third Hawaii Ironman.
Of 282 participants last
year, 95 percent completed
their race and 45 percent
were first-timers.

Florida breaks world record, local schools break bad reading habits


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
AVON PARK- It started as
something big for the state of
Florida and resulted in local students
gaining a new appreciation for read-
ing.
On May 8, Education
Commissioner Jeanine Bloomberg
announced that Florida middle
schools successfully broke the
Guinness World Record for the Most
People Reading Aloud
Simultaneously in Multiple
Locations, attempted Sept. 28.
Both Avon Park and Hill-Gustat
middle schools participated in this
state-wide event.
Students have been busy since
then, knee-deep in the book selected
to read aloud, "Peter and the
Starcatchers."
Cindy Murphy's eighth-grade
reading class at APMS read the
entire book, more than 400 pages
long, and incorporated it into the
curriculum.
"The kids absolutely loved being
able to take this book to the next


step," she said. "The students loved
it so much they are looking for the
sequel."
The book caught the attention of
every student from remedial to
advanced, those that disliked reading
to those that love it.
Tyikeria Wiley doesn't normally
read books this length.
"Normally I don't like reading
because it can be boring," she said.
"When I can have fun, laugh when
I'm reading, it makes me want to
continue to read more books."
Mention the next book in the
series and her eyes light up.
"I don't like missing any details,"
she said. "I want to see what's going
on. If I haven't read it, I want to."
APMS media specialist Dan
Fantin said more copies for the
library have been purchased as well
as some sequels.
"The books promoted themselves
because of the event," he said.
"After the event was over, circula-
tion on those titles was way up."
Daniel Temples enjoyed the dif-
ferent points of view the book used,


switching between characters but
keeping the story in line while mak-
ing those changes.
Other students read the books so
closely they began to see themselves
and family members as the charac-
ters in the book.
Molly was eighth-grader Zakia
Hart's favorite character because it
reminded her of herself. Peter was
eighth-grader Mat Rivera's favorite
character because it reminded him of
his brother's personality and love for
adventure.
After reading the book, students
were put in groups to perform a short
skit a talk show with appearances
by the novel's characters.
Students could ask and answer..
questions however they liked.
"The project brought out the char-
acters," Rivera said. "It was good for
Mrs. Murphy to have this idea; it got
us involved."
Eighth-grader Abby Lauver
agreed, saying the project made the
characters more real and gave the
reader a different perspective.
Hart summarizes why going for

the world record was important, not
just to break it, but to promote read-
ing at middle schools across Florida.
"It was an exciting book, but I
probably wouldn't have picked it up


if it weren't for the world record,"
she said.
"It was adventurous and' you
wanted to keep reading it once you
started it."

The unidentified driver of a Mazda Tribute (foreground) turned left into the path of a Dodge
Ram 3500 pickup Wednesday on Memorial Drive, just north of Avon Way. The Mazda driver
was flown to Tampa General Hospital and was listed in critical but stable condition.


One injured in Memorial Dr. wreck


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
AVON PARK An unidentified man in his
20s was flown to Tampa General Hospital on
Wednesday after he pulled into the path of a
full-size pickup.
Avon Park Detective Sgt. Jason Lister said
the Mazda Tribute driver didn't have any iden-
tification on him. Though the sport-utility
vehicle wasn't registered to the victim, Lister
said theft is not suspected.
The pickup, a Dodge 3500 with a gooseneck
trailer in tow, was southbound on Memorial
Drive, just south of Lake Lotela Drive.
At 4:15 p.m., the northbound Mazda turned


left and the truck collided with the SUV's pas-
senger side.
"Naturally, the truck locked its brakes and
jack knifed the trailer," Lister said.
A Mark Palmer Electric van suffered minor
damages in the crash.
The unidentified man, in critical but stable
condition, was the only victim. Lister didn't
comment whether the man was wearing a seat
belt because the investigation continues.
In addition to the people involved, Lister
said there were a few witnesses.
He encouraged other witnesses, or anybody
with information on the nian's identity, to call
the Avon Park Police Department at 453-6622.


Doggy delight: 'Bark Pa


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Several
weeks ago, local dog enthusi-
asts approached the Sebring
City Council asking for prop-
erty to create a dog park.
A place for dogs to run free
is a need that local groomer
Dana McPherson has seen
coming for quite some time
and has been developing just
such facility. Dubbed the
"Bark Park," it is set to open
in June and is billed as the
ultimate play park for both
owners and their canine com-
panions.
The park is on Thunderbird
Hills Road adjacent to
McPherson's business "Dog
Designs by Dana."
"Lack of exercise is the
number one reason that dogs
misbehave and there's no
place where pets could legally
run off leash and play with
other dogs," she explained.
The three-acre park fea-
tures privacy fencing, screen-
ing, security and a myriad of
play opportunities and areas
of interest.
"There's swinging tires, a
water pond and a sand pit. For
our humans, there are bench-
es, hammocks and water mis-
ters. It's all environmentally
friendly and pest free,"
McPherson said.
The park is designed to be


open seven days a week from
8:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m.
The site has been split into
four separate sections to
accommodate different types
of dogs. First, there's the yel-
low zone, for more quiet, or
timid dogs.,
"We call this 'the serenity
zone;' it's a stress-free zone
for the more docile, timid ani-
mals,"'McPherson said.
By contrast, the blue zone
is a free area with a sand hill
and water. It is designed for
high-energy play.
The, third area, dubbed the
green zone, will be about the
same as the blue zone, but
won't have the water.
"There are some dogs that
don't want to get wet, and
some owners who don't want
their dogs to get, wet,"
McPherson said.
The red zone is for dogs
that are protective of their
owners or may act aggressive-
ly toward other dogs.
"They need exercise, too,"
she said.
McPherson said the size of
the dogs would not be as
important as their tempera-
ment when it comes to which
of the areas they'll be able to
utilize.
After the dogs have played,
the park has a "self-service
dog wash." It consists of a

in brief


'Hybrid' first storm of
hurricane season
Three weeks before the
official start of the 2007
hurricane season, the
National Hurricane Center
in Miami watched carefully
this week as a subtropical
storm became the first
named storm, a prelude to
an active summer and fall
some forecasters predicted.
Just east of the South
Carolina coast Wednesday,
the swirling system reached
tropical storm strength with
winds of 45 mph. However,
weathermen called it a
"hybrid" storm because it
lacked at least one major
characteristic of a true
tropical system. Andrea
lacked the thunderstorms
wrapping around the center
of lowest pressure. Instead,
the thunderstorms were east
of Andrea, s center, with lit-
tle rain on the western side.
By Friday, the storm had
drifted south off Florida's
Atlantic coast and expected
to continue to weaken as a
depression.
, Over the weekend an
approaching cold front is
predicted to carry Andrea
off to the northeast and out


over the cooler Atlantic,
where it is forecast to dissi-
pate.

Local racer switches from 4 wheels to 2

Upstart motorcycle team has roots in Sebring


By TREY CHRISTY
trey. christy, @newssun. corn
SEBRING- John Dean II
was recently bitten by the rac-
ing bug- again.
Dean has multiple wins
driving cars in the Sports Car
Club of Americas Improved
Touring A class in recent
years, but when the idea of
starting a team to run in a
similar series was suggested,
he just couldn't get excited.
Instead, Dean partnered
with other enthusiasts to start
a motorcycle team, called
Sick Sideways.
"John is challenge driven
and was somewhat bored at
the aspect of another season
in a series that he has so fre-
quently won," team manager
Glenn Howle said.
It all began six months ago
when Dean purchased his first
motorcycle.
"My income is racing cars,
drifting and teaching people
how to race," Dean said. "I
bought a motorcycle and
loved it. I got excited and
wanted to take it to the track."
After three 15-minute track
sessions at Jennings GP in
north Florida, Dean was com-
fortable enough to get his
knee to the ground in the cor-
ners and eventually turned lap
times within four seconds of
the fastest race bike there.
Dean was on a street bike
with street tires, proving he
can .make the transition from
racing on four wheels to two.
The other team driver is
Ryan Wolfe, a rider that by
comparison is new to every-
thing.
"He's done track days in
cars but that's it," Dean said.
"He's the ground up rider."
'The two-driver team plans
on attending more track days
as 2007 progresses, eventual-
ly starting the 2008 season
racing for points in the
Florida region .. of. the
Champion Cup Ser ',
The-series will run-at vari-
ous road racing tracks, such
as Roebling Road in Georgia
and Florida tracks
Homestead, Daytona and
Moroso.
"This year will be the year
for our team to build up a
good relationship with our
sponsors and next year will be
really neat for the actual rac-
ing side," Dean said. "Until
then it will be interesting to
see how we do it. Everyone
out there owns a sports bike,
and everyone wonders what it
would be like on the track."
The two pilot different
bikes. Dean rides a 1000 cc
Yamaha R1, while Wolfe rides,
a 600 cc Kawasaki ZX-6R.
The team owns the domain
name www.sicksideways.com
and plans on using it to seek
sponsorship to help with
expenses. They will also be
uploading racing videos to
online video sharing sites like
www.youtube.com and
www.veoh.com to increase
sponsor visibility.
Sick Sideways will be
attending track days for the
rest of the year at the Jennings
motorcycle-only road racing
track.


The track is two miles long
and consists of 14 turns with a
top speed over 150 mph. The
lap record is just under 1:15
on a 1000 cc bike.
The team wants other
motorcycle enthusiasts to
know how easy it is to enter
track days and start racing.
"We are regular guys and
this is how anyone can get


started doing it," Howle said.
"It's just a matter of research-
ing what track you want to go
to, getting over the fear and
just showing up there."
Tracks like the one in
Jennings'only require mini-
mal bike preparation to run.
For example all glass, head-
light, turn signals and plastic
lenses must be taped over or


removed.
Basic safety gear is also
required, consisting of full-
face helmets, riding boots,
gloves and leather suits.
While four hours away,
Jennings holds Saturday and
Sunday track days for $145
per rider per day and also
offers Monday sessions for
$99.

La Nina to blame for dry days


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Mostly clear
today, tonight and tomorrow
without the slightest chance
of rain. With few precious
exceptions that has been the
local forecast for some time,
and there does not seem to be
any break for at least the fore-
seeable future.
The lack of rainfall has
plunged the state into what
officials of the South Florida
Water Management District
say is the third driest hydro-
logic season on record. It
probably is most notable to
Highlands County's lakeside
residents, who are looking at
the ever-increasing gap
between their homes and the
water's edge.
Alan Archer, forecaster for
the Cohan Radio Group, said
it is more than just the dry
season. He contends the prob-
lem actually reaches back into
last year.
"We're in a dry spell, but
this is not record-setting. A lot
of it has to do with the fact we
had a quieter than usual hurri-
cane season last year and that
extended on through the win-
ter," he said.
The drier than normal win-
ter came as a surprise to
many, inasmuch as the state
was supposed to be under the
influence of an El Nino
weather pattern, which tradi-
tionally brings warmer and
wetter weather to the peninsu-
la.
"El Nino usually translates
into above normal rainfall
over the Gulf Coast Region
- but it .didn't hold on as
long as expected this year,"
he explained.
Because of that, Florida
missed out on thunderstorms
developing over the Gulf of
Mexico and producing rain-
fall across the state. Now, the
sea surface temperatures in
the eastern Pacific Ocean
have dropped, producing the
La Nina effect. That usually
means a more active .hurri-
cane season. "' ""
"Under La Nina,. the storm
track or what we call the
jet stream is shifted further
to the north of a normal posi-
tion during the summer. That
means lighter winds, which in
turn allows these tropical sys-
tems to develop without any-
thing to impede them," he
said.
The upside of that would
mean additional rains, which
could replenish moisture
throughout the state.
"We'll probably see some
generous rain storms return in
the next few weeks," he pre-
dicted.
In the meantime it remains
dry. In fact, officials of the
South Florida Water
Management District say this
is one of the driest seasons
since they started keeping
records back in 1895 and they
are worried that even average
rainfall over the state this
summer will not be enough.
They say that over the past 18
months, south Florida has
received 49.31 inches of rain.
That is almost 17 inches
below the 30-year average of
expected rainfall.
At a press conference last
week, Deputy Executive
Director Chip Merriam at the
South Florida Water
Management District said the
situation made it even more
critical that people follow the
one day per week watering
restrictions.
Those limits have been
adopted by the Highlands
County Commission and stan-
dardized throughout the coun-
ty. In short, it means whether
you are in the South Florida
or Southwest Florida water
management district, the
restrictions remain the same.
The last multi-year drought
in Florida was between 1999-


2001. However, officials said
this has hit the state harder.
Whereas the last time central
Florida had enough rainfall to
carry south Florida howev-
er, this time that is not the
case.

There have been some
showers in recent days, on
Tuesday, the Keech-Bynum
drought index for Highlands
County was set at 593 out of a
possible 800. That was down
from Monday's level of 635.
Nevertheless. a Red Flag
warning for burning remains
in effect for the county. That
is a term used by fire-weather
forecasters to call attention to
limited weather conditions of
particular importance that


result in extreme burning con-
ditions.
There may yet be a silver
lining to the situation.
Sebring City Administrator
Bob Hoffman said crews have
used the low water levels to
go in and take out the stumps
of mellaluca. trees that were
left after an eradication pro-
gram nearly a decade ago.
Ironically, the trees were
eradicated because they were
sucking up too much water.

"Every one of them had a
life changing moment," said
Dan Andrews, executive
director, Greater Sebring
Chamber of Commerce and
triathlon committee member.
So far, 25 percent of last
year's field has already
signed up for the July race,
limited to 600 people.
The course is mostly the
same. At City Pier in Sebring,
they'll swim a one-quarter
mile, the 13-mile bike course
circumnavigates Lake
Jackson clockwise with a
jaunt along Scenic Highway,
Manatee Drive, State Road
17, Home Avenue and Sebring
Parkway.
The run, however, was
modified to keep the athletes
closer to downtown Sebring,
while giving family and
friends more opportunities to
cheer their favorite.
High said the triathletes
will run along Commerce
Avenue and North Ridgewood
Drive in an out-in leg with a
U-turn at the parkway.
"Nobody knew what to
expect last year," said Don
Elwell, Kenilworth Lodge
general manager and the
"voice of Heartland
Triathlon."
As emcee, Elwell saw the
anticipation of the racers
wading in Lake Jackson as he
stood high and dry on the pier.
At the finish line on West
Center Avenue, he witnessed
personal victories and the
relief of finishing.
"When they came across
the finish line, that's when
they won," he said.

Triathlon organizer, holds up a magazine cover depicting this
year's guest speaker after she completed the 2005 Hawaii
Ironman. Sarah Reinertson is an above-knee amputee.


Jerica Moore Sebring High
freshman and daughter of
accomplished triathlete Eric
Moore introduced a
"friendly" competition among
the high schools.
The schools will compete
to see who fields the most
participants. Awards will be
give for the top three boys,
top three girls and top three
relay teams.
The school that accumu-
lates the most points will hold
the trophy until next year..
Above-knee amputee Sarah
Reinertson, who completed
the Hawaii Ironman in 2005,
will be the guest speaker dur-
ing the Saturday evening
pasta bash.
Race proceeds will benefit
the Ridge Trails Association,
Cub Scout Pack 846 (who
will help administer the chil-
dren's race), scholarships and'
two other organizations to be
determined later.

implements.
Purvis said the dog han-
dlers will use discretion in
deciding when to vest a dog.
The vests can be uncomfort-
able and could overheat the
animals.
The ballistic vests will be
used -primarily on -the, -shep-
herd. and the cooling t- s on
the bloodhounds.
The latter uses freezer-
cooled gel inserts. Again, the
deputies mist monitor their
dogs because, once the cool-
ing effect expires, the vests
become heaters, Purvis said.

Highlands County.
Commissioner Edgar
Stokes, who said it's not right
to create a environmental haz-
ard here to prevent one down-
stream, offered the motion
that approved the resolution.
In an unrelated agenda
item, the commissioners
entered into a contract with
South Florida Water
Management District to study
the southern Istokpoga shore-
line and Arbuckle Creek for
areas needing improvement.
The district will provide the
$250,000 cost, and the county


will complete the study.
For Lake Jackson's shore-
line restoration along U.S. 27
from the old flag pole to near
the Gate gas station, the com-
missioners approved $60,000
from tourist development
funds (10 percent of which
are earmarked for lake proj-
ects) and $17,500 from the
Recreation and Parks
Advisory Committee.
The City of Sebring had
already committed $12,500
and lakes management techni-
cal assistant Erin McCarta,
project manager for the
restoration, is seeking other
funding through grants.
Beginning in June, contract
workers will begin removing

could be opened again, probably by another
. entity," he said.
Exactly what entity that might be has been a
matter of great speculation, however, Cargill
officials say they have no pending offers at this
time.
Spokesman Bill Brady said it did not appear
that either the Avon Park or Frostproof build-
ings had been damaged when the three hurri-
canes roared through central Florida in 2004.
"Really, it was the damage that was done to
the groves that did the most harm, limiting sup-
plies and driving prices up," he said.
It was in October 2003 Cargill Citro-
America purchased a minority interest in its
cohort, Florida-based 83 Partners (formerly
SunPure) processing plant in Avon Park as part
of the Cargill Citro Pure joint venture.

"You want the initial bite to
be the only bite," Purvis said.
The state certifies them as
patrol worthy, ensuring the
dogs are properly trained in
area and building searches,
crowd control, obedience and
protection of their handlers.
Their subsequent narcotics
training, however, isn't certi-
fied by Florida, Purvis said.
Together, dogs and han-
dlers receive 400 hours of
training before taking to the
streets:


exotic and invasive plants
from more than a mile of
shoreline, replacing it with
locally harvested native vege-
tation.
To keep the lake visibly
accessible from U.S. 27,
McCarta said the replacement
plants will be shorter. She
plans to plant about 10,000
stems.
The project also includes
educational kiosks along the
sidewalk and camera stations
that will record the changes.
Success, she said, will be
measured with, establishment
of 75 percent of the new
stems .after one year and no
more than 40 percent return
rate of the invasive plants.


A plant in Fort Pierce was also purchased as
part of that move. It was closed in July 2005.
with company officials citing many of the same:
reasons. Those operations subsequently were
moved to the Avon Park facility.
When Cargill bought the Avon Park plant, it.
was processing both oranges and grapefruit.
They changed that to a focus on grapefruit,
moving the orange production to Frostproof. .
The Frostproof facility was purchased by,
Cargill from Proctor and Gamble in 1992.
Brady said he was uncertain how the two
plants would be ultimately-shut down.
''That will be based on inventory and con-
tracts that need to be served out. One may be
closed out before the other, but that has yet to
be determined," he said. "We've been trying
really hard for many years to make that busi-
ness go. We did a lot of really innovative things
with the growers but in the end we just could-
n't get the economics to work."


A former Sebring. Police
Department officer, Williams
said he left the city for the
Sheriff's Office because word
was SPD would never get a
multipurpose K-9. Sebring
has a narcotics-only dog, he
said.
"The training is much more
intense than I ever thought it
would be," Williams said.
Like other police dogs,
Zeus goes home with
Williams, who's married with
three children. Despite Zeus'
training, he's proven to be a
reliable pet.
When he chose Zeus -
Williams fell in love with the


shepherd the trainer had
already predisposed Zeus to
children, making Williams'
selection easier.
Purvis said he needs one
more dog to round out the K-,
9 unit. With eight'" dogs fully
trained by the end of 2008, he
said he hopes to have two
dogs a multipurpose and a
bloodhound on duty at any
given time.
During a manhunt, it's the,
bloodhound's role to lead',
deputies to the suspect. A
shepherd follows, providing
security for the detail and, if
necessary, muscle to subdue
the suspect.

SEBRING Lampe &
Kiefer's Roseann Kiefer and
Bonnie Kesselring recently
took part in a one-day hearing
aid mission trip to Puerto
Vallarta, Mexico, that resulted
in 132 adults and children
receiving 264 hearing aids.
The mission trip was com-
pleted in conjunction with the


Starkey Hearing Foundation
in an effort to fulfill the foun-
dation's commitment to help-
ing the world to hear.
"We have such respect for
the Starkey Hearing
Foundation and all it does to
help the world to hear. It was
truly an honor to support the
foundation by participating in
this mission trip," said Kiefer,


mission trip
,owner of Lampe & Kiefer

According to Kiefer, not
only were those in need fitted
with hearing aids, they also
received training on hearing
aid care and maintenance and
a supply of hearing aid batter-
ies.

Special tp the News-Sun
SEBRING Julie Renee
Kirsch of Sebring recently
efirolled in the American
Quarter Horse Association
Horseback Riding Program.
The program recognizes and
awards AQHA members for
time spent with their
,American quarter horses in
activities such as trail rides,
shows, working cattle, pleas-
ure driving and simply riding.
A unique aspect of the pro-
gram is its simplicity. Current
AQHA members complete a
program application and pay a
one-time $25 enrollment fee.
Each enrollee receives an
official AQHA log sheet to
record their hours driving or
riding an American quarter


horse. Participants need not
own their own horse, but all
official hours must be accrued
with a registered American
quarter horse.
Nine subsequent awards are
presented at 100- to 5,000-
hour levels and range from
merchandise gift certificates
from Drysdales Western Store
to a Montana Silversmiths
trophy belt buckle at the high-
est level.
"The Horseback Riding
Program is a unique opportu-
nity to earn rewards outside
of traditional competition,"
said Stephanie A.
McCommon, AQHA manager
of membership services. "In
some cases, the program


rewards people who already
spend many hours riding
American quarter horses. For
others, the Horseback Riding
Program is an incentive to get
out and ride."
Horseback riding provides
good exercise. According to
the U.S. Department of the
Interior, more than 27 million
people participate in horse-
back riding nationally.
AQHA actively encourages
horseback riding as a relaxing
recreational activity that can
be enjoyed alone or shared
with family and friends. For

AQHA and its programs, visit

When I was a kid with a
pre-adolescent interest in
what school teachers used to
call "civics," I remember the
"I like Ike" buttons the pas-
tor and our church members
wore on Sundays, so I liked
Ike, too, although I had no
idea why. Maybe it was.his
way of waving and smiling
the couple of times I saw
him on our black and white
television screen. He was
sort of bald like an uncle of
mine, and seemed like the
kind of guy I'd like for an
older neighbor, you know,
someone who greets you and
is friendly, even helpful
when the chain slips off the
sprocket of your bike.
Mostly, I think I liked Ike
because I saw so many "I
like Ike" buttons around
church and around town. I
mean, if all these people -
even some of the teachers at


my school liked
him, hc must be
really good.
And being -good"
was what it was all
about back in the
1950's. when us
baby boomers began
coming along.
Are children born
with some kind of
positive even
idealistic souls? I
know by the time I


Writer's
Cramp
Ric Liljenberg


entered college I figured
we'd end racism and be very
careful of what President Ike
called "the industrial military
complex."
A lot of people died while
we threaded our new para-
digm.
Years later, this nation's
major political parties are
offering wide open "fields,"
as they say, which I think is
a good thing because the -


Good Book suggests
"in a multitude of
counselors is wis-
dom and under-
standing."
I love politics.
Politics is from a
Latin word that
means "body."
"Polis" is the
body of people -
all of us together.
Through the
Greeks first, and


then the Romans, passed a
language to explain their
gods their muse.
And through them came
the idea of democracy the
rights of each individualism
equal to the mass of people.
Or, no part is less impor-
tant than the whole.
This is the undergirding
concept upon which our
whole nation rests, even
today.

Letters


A Mother's Day Thank
You letter
Editor:
Usually, a letter is written
to thank our mothers for all
that they do for us. I do
thank my mother and love
her dearly but this letter is to
the ones who made me a
mother.
I would like to thank my
husband, son and daughter
for making me one of the
proudest mothers around.
You see, I "volunteer" for
more things than I should. I
am a teacher, swim coach,
athletic director, junior class
sponsor and aquatics coordi-
nator. Although not intention-
ally, my family often gets left
out of my schedule but my
family never lets me down.
This past weekend I was
putting on the Lake Placid
Youth Sports Day and my
family was right beside me
the whole time. I could not
do the things I do without
their help and support. I love
them dearly.
So, on this Mother's Day, I
would like to thank my Sid,
Young Sid and Danielle for
making me a mom. I love
you guys with all of my
heart.

Curbing any further
restrictions on rights
Editor:
As a loyal American who
has served in two wars
fought by our country and
served in the National Guard
of the state of Ohio for three
years, being called into serv-
ice twice in that time, I can-
not stand by without com-
menting on the article you
published (not a letter to the
editor) in Wednesday's paper.
I am surprised that a per-
son of Mr. (Larry) Levey's
intelligence and standing as
an American could have writ-
ten such material and touted


one of the most active organ-
izations advocating stricter
gun control. We have a
plethora of laws, some good,
some bad, but very few that
are being enforced as they
were originally written.
I am respecting your con-
stitutional right to speak your
piece in public, now I think
that you should respect mine
by not taking my right to
own a gun away from me.
It is also surprising that a
paper that has been published
for as long as this would
print an article such as this in
a community where guns are
a way of life for many of us.
I use mine quite frequently
for trap or skeet shooting and
I have one beside my bed to
supplement our entry alarms.
The organization you are
touting would like to see
these articles registered,
taxed and further controlled.
Maybe one vote or the
refusal to renew one sub-
scription may not make a dif-
ference but I intend to do my
part to curb any restriction
on my constitutional rights.

A passion and panache for peanut butter


Lick your lips, smacking good until it
clings to the roof of your mouth. That's
the refined taste of peanut butter.
Peanut butter is one of my most
favorite comfort foods. You might even
say I'm a tad nutty over the stuff. I love
it so much I buy the biggest jar avail-
able and have been known to scoop it
with a spoon. Mmmmm, mmmmm good.
Some people like it smooth, but I'm a
"crunchy girl" myself. However, I will
buy-smooth to prevent the threat of a
food fight at home.
Are peanuts strictly from the South'?
Yes, they are. Florida ranks fourth in
production, according to the most recent
statistics found on the American Peanut
Council Web site. Georgia stands at
number one, followed by Texas and
Alabama.
Of course in the sandwich depart-
ment, peanut butter and banana suits me
fine, as does the old standard with
strawberry jam. The latter has to be
thick and oozing out of the bread. To
make things seem a little bit healthier,
I'll assuage my guilt with whole wheat
bread, although I think white is better.
As for cookies, well, there's none bet-
ter than my old favorite standby ... For
that matter, pies too.
In consistency, the cookies have to be
soft and chewy and chocked full of
ground peanuts. Aesthetically, the top
must be crisscrossed by fork tines.
Ironically, I've never tried to make
my own peanut butter cookies. I think
it's because I would eat the dough even
before it got to the oven. On the other
hand, if someone were to make me a
batch, ooooohhhhhhhh. Can you say
"girlfriend?"
When they're fresh from the oven,


Grant's

what heaven, what
delight, what a pig-
out session but,
oh, so worth the
extra day's gain of
weight on the,scales.
When it comes to
consistency inr a jar,
some people are nat-
uralists and insist on
the old-fashioned
kind with the oil
floating to the top.
Personally, I'm part


of the processed crowd.
I know, shame on me for not being a
peanut butter purist. Some even might
say I really don't appreciate real peanut
butter based on this standard.
Still I confess to having a passion
and panache for peanut butter.
Of course, we would have to have a
scare on my most favorite brand. Yes,
mine was included in that lot, but we
had eaten so much of it, I figured it
wasn't worth throwing out. My question
is how do yop get salmonella from
peanuts'?
What keeps it from infecting roasted
peanuts that you eat out of your hand?
Also, why is it that so many calories can
be crammed into one tiny nut?
According to the label on my jar (and,
yes, I am a label reader), a single serv-
ing of 2 tablespoons has 190 calories,
26 percent total fat, 18 percent saturated
fat and 0 grams of trans fat. It has no
cholesterol, 6 percent sodium, 2 percent
total carbohydrate, 8 percent dietary
fiber, 3 grams of sugars and 7 grams of
protein. Add to that 2 percent iron and
20 percent niacin. Of course, this is all
based on a 2,000 calorie diet.


That's your lesson for today.
How can we analyze this further?
How did this peanut butter propensity
begin? Was it seated in the deep recess-
es of my broken childhood? Was I
deprived of peanut butter at an early age
and I'm making up for it now?
Who knows?
I do recall in my childhood a Mr.
Peanut store near Longwood. Cars
would stop and a figure dressed as a
peanut would come and shake hands. I
also vaguely remember a kite with a
kangaroo that we could order or outright
buy in connection with one of the
brands.
Boring further into peanut butter pas-
times, let us consider other things We
can do with the stuff. You could play
practical jokes on your dog and put
some peanut butter on the tile or carpet
and call him a "bad boy."
You could sneak,a sandwich to a
cranky snowbird complaining that
Florida isn't like "back home," so that
his or her dentures would slip a notch.
That would keep them quiet.
You could adopt "Peanut Butter" by
Chubby Checkers as a second national
anthem. That'll get those aching joints
moving.
Plus, what says "second childhood"
better than peanut butter? With every
spread of the knife, with every bite,
what isn't there to like about this food?
Count me in. And while you're
adding that to the mix, could you do me
a favor?
Pass me that plate of cookies, ya'll.

We should use our time with better discretion


Do you know what time it is? There
are clocks everywhere informing us of
the hour, whether if we're late for work,
school, or an appointment.
Watches are an important accessory to
the wardrobe. Some actually feel
"naked" without one.
What would it be like if we had no
watches or clocks? Would we wander
around aimlessly, not knowing where to
go next or what to do next? Are we so
"time-conscious" that we're no longer
capable of spontaneity? It's almost like
we're mechanically' programmed to go
through the motions in life and not real-
ly "live" in the moment. Or at least it
feels that way sometimes.
It would be nice if time could stop
once in awhile, long enough to catch
our breath, smell the roses and enjoy
our loved ones without interruptions.
Seems like one has to make it stop (in
their world) and make it happen as the
time is usually unavailable.
We all have the same 24 hours to use.
however we want. Of course we work
eight to 12 or more hours a day, then we
have to sleep at least six (eight is bet-
ter), spend time with family and/or


Janelle's
Jargon
Janelle Dennison
extracurricular activities. Eight work
plus eight sleep plus eight family/activi-
ties equals 24 hours. (This is not in the
order of importance, which varies from
person to person).
From a.different perspective, what
about "timing?" You know, when your
friend has an awful cbld and you sit
down to discuss the latest shoe sale at
the mall. Or giving someone advice
about their problem at work while
they're trying to read a book. This is not
one of my strengths, as you can see.
Timing is everything when dealing with
one another. You can say the right thing
at the wrong time and make the issue
seem bigger than it actually is. So how
frustrating can that be?
So the next time someone says to you
"I don't have the time," remind them we
all have the same amount of time, we
just need to use it with more discretion.
There are things that can rob us of
time such as unnecessary activities (like
two or three trips to the store because


you forgot something), illness, depres-
sion, others who are irresponsible and
use up your time to do their work, etc.
These are things we can work on. Make
a shopping list, go to the doctor for reg-
ular checkups (get flu shots, etc.), if not
clinically depressed find something to
do for someone else and determine if
who you're "helping" really needs the
help, or is just taking advantage of you.
I'm sure there are other things I've
missed.
In conclusion, I just want to remind
everyone there are two more months
before half the year is gone. Now may
be a. good time to take inventory of
where we are, where we desire to go
and if we're heading in the right direc-
tion.
It's also a good time to start
Christmas -h. ppir.-, or at least start the
list.
Have a great 24-hour day, 168-hour
week, 672-hour month, which leaves a
5,680-hour year (8,064-hour in a whole
year).

If they don't, there's proba-

"all or most" of what they
read in their daily newspaper,
a drop of 10 points in eight
years. Another 40 percent
believed only "a good deal"
of what they read in the
paper.
The loss of public trust
should come as no surprise.
Journalists have been caught
making up stories (Jayson'
Blair, formerly of The New
York Times, and others);
rushing stories into the pub-
lic domain ("Al Gore is our
next president. No, make that
George Bush. No, make that
..."); accepting payment from
the government in exchange
for news coverage (three
journalists formerly at El
Nuevo Herald in Miami, and
others); plagiarizing (too
many culprits to name here);
and juicing their stories with
loaded language and sensa-
tional imagery (again, we
don't have enough space to
start naming names).
Business agendas are also
getting in the way of good
journalism. What else would
explain an ABC reporter's
"story" about a medical pro-
cedure that just happened to


Christine Tatum

play a starring role in the
episode of Grey's Anatomy
that aired right before the
newscast? What happens to
local news coverage when
hundreds of reporting posi-
tions are cut to satisfy
investors' expectations, or
one corporation owns hun-
dreds of news outlets?
Good journalism is at the
heart of our democracy. Like
it or not, a free press -
warts and all is what cre-
ates an informed citizenry
that can hold business, gov-
ernment and the institutions
that affect our lives account-
able. This nation is great"
because it has a free albeit
noisy and messy news
media.
The media most certainly
need to win back the public
trust they've lost. That trust
starts with a commitment to
ethical news production,
which is, above all, accurate,
fair and independent of spe-
cial interests. Many news
organizations publicize their
ethics policies online. The
Society of Professional
Journalists' code is widely
considered the gold standard
of the industry and can be
found at spj.org. SPJ mem-
bers routinely debate journal-
ism ethics online and encour-
age the general public to join
their conversations.
Rather than tune out, read-
ers, listeners and viewers
should hold news organiza-
tions and the companies that
own them accountable for
their news coverage and the
business decisions that
undermine responsible jour-
nalism. Write letters, send e-
mail, make phone calls or
blog. We'll all be better for
it.

Paul Przychocki, a graduating senior and cadet colonel commander, is honored recently
by Colonel Robert Smith along with many of his fellow cadets in the 14th annual Sebring
High School Air Force Junior ROTC Awards Ceremony in the Smith Center. Przychocki
was not only awarded the Daughters of the American Revolution Award, presented to the
cadet who best demonstrated the qualities of good character, adherence to military disci-
pline and leadership ability, but also took home Senior Cadet of the Year. In the final
award of the ceremony, he was honored by being named the Colonel Robert J. Smith
Outstanding Cadet of the Year.


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Members
of the food science teams

one food product out of three
is different.
FFA teams throughout the
state of Florida competed in
this event. The students had to
work as a team to come up
with an original breakfast
food. Avon Park Middle

Korean Hand

Therapy class

Wednesday
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Many may
ask, what is Korean Hand
Therapy? Known also as
KHT, it is a system for awak-
ening the body to health and
wellness through your hands.
By stimulating specific points
on your hands, you can
resolve pain and balance
internal organ function.
A class, Introduction to
Korean Hand Therapy, is set
for 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Wednesday at 204 S. Orange
St. in downtown Sebring.
KHT includes the reflexol-
ogy level of treatment, simi-
lar in concept to the reflexol-
ogy of the foot. The KHT
reflex map of the hand was
discovered in 1971 by Dr.
Tae-Woo Yoo in Korea and
has been clinically and exper-
imentally tested for accuracy.
KHT also includes the
entire acupuncture meridian
energy system, but in minia-
ture, on the hands. This addi-
tion to the reflex system gives
hand therapy many treatment
options:
Stimulating points in
KHT is done with point mas-
sage, tiny tape-on metal acu-
pressure pellets.
Greater healing effec-
tiveness in the KHT system is
possible because the entire
acupuncture system found on
the whole body is also found
in miniature on the hands.
This means that individuals
can add the healing power of
acupuncture principles to the
basic KHT hand reflexology
system.
Health professionals of
all disciplines are adding the
power of KHT to their pres-
ent methods of working with
clients. KHT is practiced by a
diverse group of health care
professionals throughout the
world.
Current practitioners
include acupuncturists, med-
- ical doctors, chiropractors,
physical therapists, nurses,
nurse practitioners, massage
therapists, and lay-persons.
Self and family treatment
lay-persons usually confine
their study to the beginning
levels of KHT. This level of
knowledge allows them to
treat themselves and their
family members in order to
remedy simpler problems and
to maintain good health.
Several hundred thousand lay
persons in Korea and else-
where practice self and fami-
ly treatment. More complex,
chronic problems often
require the assistance of prac-
titioners with advanced KHT
knowledge and clinical expe-
rience.
Tuition for the workshop is
$10 per person. Supplies may
be purchased after the class
for $15. Cyndee Pack is the
instructor for Wednesday
night's class. Call 471-1122
to register.

I Thank you,


My mom's worst

Mother's Day
My uncle and aunt,
their kids and my grand-
mother all had houses in
a row down their street
when we were growing
up. My youngest cousin
was a year younger than
me, so we hung out
together whenever my
folks and I visited.
About dusk on the
Mother's Day in ques-
tion, my cousin and I
were in the backyard of
Grand's house, playing in
the garden. I knew we
were going to have to go
in soon because the mos-
quitoes were about to
carry both of us away.
Besides, we both had
school the next day, so
we'd have to be tucking
away pretty soon.
Sure enough, both sets
of the folks gave the
infamous words to come
in and get ready to go.
What we didn't realize
was, when we heard the
call, we were about to
change our lives forever.
She headed towards her
house and I headed,
towards the front of
Grand's house, setting up
a collision course.
My cousin's forehead
was the same height as
my.upper teeth. I can tell
you, her head was a
whole lot harder than my
teeth. One front tooth-
cracked diagonally and
one tooth was pushed
backwards into my upper
gums. Her forehead had a
gash about one-quarter
inch deep that bled pro-
fusely, as surface head
wounds tend to do.
Dracula had nothing on
me.
After futilely looking .
for the broken tooth for a
few minutes, my folks
bundled me off to our
family dentist, who hap-
pened to live. next door to
his practice. He was able
to save the bent tooth and
temporarily.cap the bro-
ken tooth.
About three years after
that horrific experience, I
began to reap the effects
of that collision.
Unbeknownst to us, the
impact had stunted the.
growth of my lower jaw
(mandible), and created a
shortening of my jaw
muscles. That stunted
jawbone, in turn, caused
the muscles of the jaw to
spasm and make my jaw
lock, open.
One Sunday afternoon
on the back county roads
of rural Ohio, we were
driving home through the
dips and valleys of the

Simply speaking, Spider-Man 3 is awful MIH0LvIJ
r~~~~ ~ ~ ~ 0. J 3S~aKK^a


I tried to keep an open
mind while watching
"Spider-Man 3." Really, I
did.
My feelings about the first
two installments of the
"Spider-Man" trilogy were
negative, to put it mildly. I
thought both movies were
badly acted, badly directed,
badly written, and generally
boring. And I was (and still
am) befuddled as to why the
movies are so popular.
With all that in the back of
my mind, I went into
"Spider-Man 3" ready to give
it a chance. I thought the
"good Spider-Man versus
evil Spider-Man" plotline
was intriguing (although with
Tobey Maguire involved, I
wasn't expecting it to be that
good). And I was excited that
Venom the best Spider-Man
villain of all was in the
film. So in other words, I
was expecting "Spider-Man
3" to be watchable, if not
downright enjoyable.
Boy, was I ever wrong.
The aforementioned bad
acting, bad directing, and bad
writing? They're all worse in
this film. Venom, who was
supposed to be the saving
grace of the film, was hardly
in the movie at all. Plus, the
movie was about 45 minutes
too long. Well, OK, actually
the movie was 2 hours and
20 minutes too long, but
who's counting?
I probably don't have to
explain the plot, because it
seems that everyone has
already seen the film. But the
story is mainly about Spider-
Man's fight against Sandman
(Thomas Haden Church) and
Venom (Topher Grace). And
then there's a subplot about
Spider-Man getting infected
with evil black goo from a
meteor that turns his' suit
black. Or something.,
Oh, and there's the subplot

with his dead uncle. And
there's the subplot about his
sometime-friend, sometime-
enemy Harry Osborn (James
Franco). And there's the love
triangle subplot between
Parker, Mary Jane Watson
(Kirsten Dunst), and Gwen
Stacy (Bryce Dallas
Howard). Needless to say,
subplots are plentiful.
Let's get the niceties out of
the way first not everything
in the movie was terrible.
Grace and Church were very
good as the two villains. In
fact, Sandman and Venom are
the two best villains in any of
the three films (unfortunate-
ly, that's not saying very
much). The incomparable
Bruce Campbell provides the
biggest laughs in the movie
in his brief cameo appearance
as a maitre'd in a fancy
French restaurant.
Also, the special effects in
the movie are nothing short
of fantastic but there's not
enough action and there's
way too much dialogue. And
speaking of dialogue, you'd
be hard-pressed to find a
script more badly written and
with more bad superhero

Murphy Movie Rating
1 M = Miserable

5 M = Masterpiece

'Spider Man 3'
gets




movie cliches than this one.
You'd also be hard-pressed
to find a worse actor on the
planet than Maguire. Let's ,
put it this way: When he
cried in one particularly
corny scene the audience
laughed. And not in a good
way.
Another grating aspect of
the film is the ham-handed
way Sam Raimi directs it. As.
a big fan of Raimi's directing
in the "Evil Dead" trilogy,
I'm shocked by how badly he
directs the "Spider-Man"
films. "Spider-Man 3" is par-
ticularly aimless and mean-
dering; it just slingshots from
one plotline to another with
no rhyme or reason and no
continuity.
Raimi also tries to cram


two movies' worth of materi-
al into one film, which means
that none of the film's many
storylines have proper time
to develop. And despite the
many overlapping storylines,
the film somehow manages to
drag in several places. There
are just too many "main char-
acters" to develop properly,
and the ones that are devel-
oped are haphazard and
directionless.
So it's plain to see that I
didn't like this movie. And
it's not that I dislike super-
hero movies I thoroughly
enjoyed the "X-Men"
movies, the "Batman" films
(except "Batman and Robin',)
and "Superman Returns." I
even liked "Daredevil"
(which made me one of about
six people who did includ-
ing Ben Affleck's parents).
And it's not that I dislike
Spider-Man as a character. As
a kid, I read the comics,
watched the cartoons, and
even had the action figures.
Now, I know my hatred of
these films puts me in the
minority. The film has
already set box-office records
receipts in its first weekend.
It's obvious that people love
Spider-Man. But why? For
the life of me, I cannot figure
out why these films are so
popular.
But there's one thing I can
figure out: "Spider-Man 3" is
the worst movie I've seen
this year.

Shoemakers and shoe
repair men are almost extinct
professions. People no longer
have their footwear repaired.
Instead, our shoes are
dumped when damaged.
Recently, I had an
epiphany, or what some peo-
ple call a "light bulb
moment." I noticed that the
tips of my shoe heels were
missing. I inquired if anyone
knew a shoemaker, and was
told that profession was
extinct. The comment was
also made that in most
instances, it would cost more
to repair the shoe than to
replace it. However, I believe
that repairing a shoe depends
on how expensive it was.
With vivid clarity, I had an
epiphany of my grandfather
"Pappy" showing me how to
tip the heel of a shoe. Indeed,
it was a light bulb moment.
You see, back in the days,
Pappy, who is now deceased,

stored shoe soles and glue in
a box for emergency repairs.
I remember him instructing
me to place the heel of the
shoe on the piece of leather.
He would then show me how
to use a pen to outline the
shoe heel before splicing it.
Once the tip was cut to
size, it would then be placed
on the shoe heel. A small
hammer was then used to

'The Climb' to be shown at Avon

Park First Presbyterian Church


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK On
Sunday, May 20, Avon Park
First Presbyterian Church
A.R.P. will show the movie of
the month, "The Climb," in
the fellowship hall at 4 p.m.
Presented by Billy Graham,
this movie goes from heart-
stopping to heartwarming
...and back!
"The Climb" is a good
movie that is exciting, inspir-
ing, and entertaining for the
whole family.
A Graham presentation,
this is an intense drama that
will take your breath away, as
the flamboyant Derrick
Williams (Jason George) and
"safety man" Michael Harris
(Ned Vaughn), two hotshot
solo mountain climbers, form
a fire-and-ice relationship
when they scale the ultimate
summit in the Chilean Andes.
But no amount of training
can prepare this turbulent
team for the harsh reality of
the climb, and their challenge
escalates into a test of wills,
character and sacrifice 'that


pushes both men beyond lim-
its.
Featuring compelling per-
formances by Dabney
Coleman, Clifton Davis, Todd
Bridges, and newcomer Kyli
Santiago, and filmed .im the
Spectacular Wasatch
Mountains, "The Climb" is an
adventure experience not to
soon be forgotten.
This movie will be the
movie-of-the-month at Avon
Park .Presbyterian Church
A.R.P. for May. Plan now to
attend and bring family and
friends.
Popcorn and sodas will be
served and the public is invit-
ed. There is no charge to
come enjoy this magnificent
movie.
The Avon Park First
Presbyterian Church is at 215
E. Circle St. on the shore of

SUNNY
Continued from 1B
two-laned roads. As usually hap-
pened, my ears closed up and I
yawned to open them back up.
Unfortunately, I yawned widely
enough for my lower jawbone to
hook behind my upper jeaw and I
had one of the most horrifying real-
life nightmares begin.
I was literally scared witless.
After calling the local doctor to
unsuccessfully help me unlock the
bones, dry heaves, shdck, and over
two hours later, the local dentist
unlocked the jaws.
Years-long story short: three
crowns, five crushed teeth from
spasms, surgery to lengthen the
mandible, eight dental surgeries
and two dental implants later, I
smile when I wish my mom,
"Happy Mother's Day."

Class 4A State Baseball Playoffs


U


Streaks headed to first state final four in 41 years


Abeln strikes out 12,

Peck collects 3 RBI
By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne @newssun. corn
TAMPA Two droughts were satiated
Wednesday night as the Blue Streaks held
off Tampa Jesuit, 4-2, to take the Class 4-
3A Regional Championship.
The win propelled Sebring to the State
Semifinals the first for the school since
the basketball reached the Final Four in
'99 and the first for the baseball program
since '66.
With the game having been pushed
from it's Tuesday timeslot by excessive
smoke enveloping the Tampa area, it
seemed like it would aid Streak starter
Chaz Abeln, with the extra day of rest for
his arm.
"I don't know if it helped, really,"
Abeln said. "We were all fired up to play
yesterday."
Head coach Hoppy Rewis echoed the
anxious sentiment.
"We would have played them in the
Publix parking lot if we needed to," he
said. "We just wanted to play and get to
the next round."
Sebring The eager excitement
was evident pretty quickly
Sas with one out in the top
of the first, left-fielder
Jesuit Nick Malloyed ripped a
shot toward the right-cen-
ter field wall.
The Tiger defense
tracked down the deep drive for an out,
but the impressive drive got the strong
Sebring contingent in the stands into the
game early.
Their enthusiasm was soon rewarded
when Abeln took one back through the
middle for a single, bringing up right-
fielder Charlie Peck.
After laying off the first offering from
Tiger starter Kevin Quackenbush, Peck
saw what he wanted.
"It was a fastball, about belt highly he
said.
The left-handed swing was true and a
no-doubt-about-it blast easily cleared the
right field fence to send the crowd's deci-
bel level skyrocketing with the quick 2-0
Blue Streak lead.
And whether the extra day of rest
helped or not, Abeln was in dominant
form, striking out the first two batters he
saw and retiring the side in order in the
first.
Sebring nearly added a run in the sec-
ond, as Tony Vazquez blooped a single to
left, but was forced at second by a J.C.
Shoop ground ball.
Cory 'Mega' Watt pinch ran for shoop

Sebring's Charlie Peck can't help but smile after belting a two-run homer that
put Sebring ahead to stay in the first inning of Wednesday's regional champi-
onship game at Tampa Jesuit.


I remember in

college the old edict,
'as a newspaper
reporter you must
remain impartial.'
In other words,
being a sports A
reporter, I'm not sup-
posed to really care
whether the team I'm An
assigned to cover
wins or loses and TI
my main mission is Da,
to just compile the
stats, conduct the interviews
and come up with a story to
capture and relate what took
place in the event.

STREAKS
Continued from 1D
and moved to second one-out
later when Ryan Thorlton laced
a single to right.
J.T. Tomlinson followed
with a line-drive single to
right, sending Watt scamper-
ing around third toward home.
But a laser-like throw from
right field nailed Watt at the
plate and the lead held at two.
And it looked like that
would be enough, as Abeln
again went through the Jesuit
order easily in the second -
striking out two more Tigers.
The run the Streaks didn't
get in the second, they tallied in
the third, with Abeln bouncing
a double off the right-center
field wall and Peck bringing
him home with a single.
The three run lead looked
even larger as Abeln contin-
ued to look untouchable when
he struck out the first Jesuit
batter he faced in the third.
But Tiger catcher, Matt
Fest, caught the Sebring faith-
ful by surprise when he
cranked an opposite field
home run to put the home
team on the board.
"It was my mistake, my
fault," Abeln said. "I threw a
curve ball that just floated up
there."


And that's all it seemed to"
be, a little bump in the road,
as Abeln struck out the next
two batters to end the inning.
'Sebring didn't notch the
scoring column in the fourth,
but they were continuing to
square the ball up good, with
Tomlinson and Malloyed
being retired on rocket-shot
line drives.
Things got a little more
dicey in the Jesuit fourth,
however, as Jonathan Koscso
single, moved to third on a
Stephen Hunt double to right
center and came in on a Greg
Dupell ground out.
Suddenly, with Sebring
seeming to have been domi-
nant the whole game, they
now clung to a scant 3-2 lead.
A scoreless fifth kept things
tense, but a little more breath-
ing room was created by the
Streaks in the sixth.
Vazquez started the inning
by taking one for the team and
giving way to pinch runner
Caleb McGee.
One-out later, with Colt
Williams at the plate, a
Quackenbush wild pitch
moved McGee to second.
Williams would ground out
for the second out of the
inning, but a tiring
Quackenbush threw another
too-short curve that got away,
sending McGee to third.

I didn't find out until later
that this win would get them
to the final four for the first
time since 1966, which I can
thankfully say is before even
MY time, but it wouldn't
have mattered.
After J.T. Tomlinson
popped out and Nick
Malloyed flew out deep to
right center, .1 was thinking,
"Oh jeez, is it going to be


one of those games where
they hit it hard but right at
people?"
But then Chaz Abeln
grounded one up the middle
and Charlie Peck kabloowied
a fastball about eight miles
and things were looking
good.
Abeln then took the mound
against the might Tigers and
declawed therh one-by-one,
striking out one after another.
Jesuit had enough to
scratch across two runs, but I
didn't get real concerned
until the sixth.
In both the fifth and sixth
innings, Abeln struck out one
batter, down from his usual
two per-inning, so maybe he
was tiring.
Then a batter reached on
an error in the sixth, and I
had visions of our game
against Lyons.
Then the Cubs fan in me
came out and I started wor-
riedly scanning the crowd for
Steve Bartman.
But then Tomlinson made a
fire running catch in center
field, where not even Bartman
could have reached over to
get a piece of it, and Abeln
notched another strikeout.
And of course, I noticed
that I had my camera slung
over my left shoulder, my
notebook in my shirt pocket
and my pen behind my right
ear when that last strikeout
came so when the bottom of
the seventh rolled around, as
any superstitious sports fan
would do, I made sure every-
thing was in its proper place.
A groundout to start the
inning, two outs to go the
good luck mojo was working.
But Abeln walked the next
guy and I had to rethink -
let's try the pen behind my
left ear, notebook in back
pants pocket and camera over
right shoulder.
A strikeout followed, so,I
knew I had corrected the
vibe.
And it held through for
one more out as Tomlinson
coasted in to secure the short
pop-fly. ..,
I knew I was supposed to,
as a professional journalist,
react with more of a 'well,
well congratulations on a
nicely-played game.'.
And as I conducted my
interviews, I suppose I held
that demeanor.
But inside, I was telling
my professors 'the heck with
it' and whooping it up big
time as any fan would.

license revoked or suspended-
in his home state from engag-
ing in those activities in any
other member state.
Those violators cannot
escape the consequences sim-
ply by crossing the state line,
according to Capt. Curtis
Brown, FWC's Interstate
Wildlife Compact administra-
tor. "
Repeat offenders could
lose their hunting and fishing
privileges for several years or
in some cases their lifetime,"
Brown said.
Under the statute, viola-
tions are classified at four
levels including increased
penalties at each level for
repeat violators.
Level 1 violations are
those such as hunting or fish-
ing without a license, deer
hunting without an orange
vest and violating wildlife
management area rules.
Conviction would result in a
$50 fine plus court costs.
Level 2 violations such as
exceeding bag limits, fishing
or hunting during closed sea-
sons, violating artificial reef
requirements and illegally
feeding wildlife.
First conviction is punish-
able by a maximum $500 fine
and 60 days in jail. Penalties
for subsequent convictions,
carry heavier fines and much
longer jail terms.
Level 3 infractions such as
illegal possession of commer-
cial quantities of freshwater
game fish, taking deer or
turkey during a closed season
or with use of a gun and light
at night, possessing three fish
over the bag limit of trout,
nook or redfish, taking 1,000
pounds or more of illegal fin-
fish or 100 or more lobsters,
stone crabs or blue crabs.
First conviction will result
in $1000 fine and a year in
jail. Second conviction with-
in 10 years carries a maxi-
mum one year in jail and
mandatory minimum $750
fine plus a three-year suspen-
sion of all FWC recreational
licenses.
The most serious viola-
tions are level 4.
They include possession of
counterfeit license, theft or
molestation of freshwater
fishing gear or lobster, stone


or blue crab traps, lines or
buoys, or illegal sale of ille-
gally harvested deer, turkey
or marine fish.
First and subsequent con-
victions are punishable by up
to a $5000 fine and five
years in jail.


ing with a suspended or
revoked license carried a
penalty of a $50 fine, court
costs and the cost of the
license.
Conviction now will result
in a mandatory fine of $1000
and a five-year suspension of
all FWC recreational licenses


and possibly a year in jail.

"Enhanced Penalty, Law" is
