fire assessment


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING Are city resi-
dents; ready to trade a
decrease in ad valorem rates
for a fire assessment system? '
They might find out soon,
as city officials are in discus-
sions about implementing an
assessment system for fire
protection.
"One can argue that it's a
more fair way to
charge for a service
because everybody
pays for it," City
Administrator Bob
Hoffman said.
The city started hav-
ing discussions on
implementing a fire Hof
assessment program
similar to Avon Park's years
ago, Hoffman said.
"We've been talking about
this for several years going
back to when Avon Park
implemented theirs four or
five years ago.," Hoffman
said. "It's kind of just been
sitting out there."
If a fire assessment pro-
gram is implemented,
Hoffman said, a decrease in,
ad valorem taxes should fol-
low even if the Legislature
mandate-s ad valorem tax cuts
as part of its property tax


overhaul. And ,if the
Legislature's reforms impact
the city's revenues. then new
%ways of paying for police and
fire protection w ill have to be
found.
jButas of now, the city is in
the very preliminary planning
stages, and there are still sev-
eral steps to take before an
assessment sy stem is imple-
mented.
S"Everything is in a
state of" flux,"
Hoffman said.
The Sebring City
Council passed a
motion Tuesday
instructing city staff to
negotiate a contract
fman with consulting firm
Government Services
Group, Inc. If the contract is
appro ed by the council, GSG
%would put together a report
detailing how to implement
the assessment program and
how much it would cost.
The next discussion on the
issue will take place either at
the council's June 19 meeting
or one of its July meetings.
Hoffman said the city is wait-
ing to see 'what the
Legislature does in its special
session next month before

J.T. Tomlinson and the rest of the Blue Streaks have gotten in plenty of practice since securing ahspot in today's Class 4A
state semifinal game.

Long wait is finally over for Blue Streaks.
Lon .S Iy ;'"*'1*- '


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.holhine@-nitu'-iion.con "
SEBRING Ten days after their-
regional championship victory over
Tampa Jesuit, the baseball Blue
Streaks are understandably chomping
at the bit.
The. elation of reaching the doorstep
of the state finals for the first time in
41 years has had a while to settle and
has given the Sebring players the
chance to refocus their energies, and
steadily prepare for today's 5 p.m.
game against Pensacola Pine Forest in
the Class 4A state semifinal at Ed
Smith Stadium in Sarasota..
"It's been a long week," Charlie
Peck said. "We've all been anxious to
play, but it's a good thing that we've'
had the time to prepare and be ready."'
A sentiment echoed by Chaz Abeln


who said. "I'm ready to play right .
now." .. ,
But the ability of this team. of these
players. to reign in the anxiousness
goes.a long way in explaining their
success.
"Like with any group, especially this
age. the\ ha\e their fun." assistant
coach Brian Rapp said. "But these
guys are good with knowing when to ,
focus and get dow% n to business."
That business-like mentality and
approach has ob\iousl\ translated to
w inning, %%ith the Streaks 126-4) hav-
ing won 12 straight games since-a loss
to visiting St. Alban's of Washington
D.C. on March 21.
With the success comes confidence
- a confidence in %what they do no mat-
ter %who they face.
"\We really don't know much about


them." Nick Maloyed said when asked"
about the Eagles i22-7) "We've heard
some different things about their pitch-
er, but that's really it.
"We're a little nervous, just because
it's a big game but we're confident,
very confident." '.
The magnitude of the game is defi-.
nitely a common thought, somewhat
for the history. but also personally to
each of them.
"By far, this is the biggestgame I've
ever played in," Colt Williams said.,
"In football we came close to ad% anc-
ing in the playoffs, but not nearly this
far."
"When you're young and in the little
'leagues, playing the all-stars and
things like that." Maloyed said.
"You think at the time it's a big
game, but this is big."

Local care givers don I seem


to care about SFCC seminar


Only 12 of 250

spots are taken

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK Lorrie
Key sits forward in her chair,
emanating energy. Normally
upbeat, on this morning she is
disappointed.
Key is the coordinator of
Corporate and Continuing
Education for South Florida
Community College. Her job,
she said, is to listen to the
community and respond to its
needs.
For some time now she has
been hearing from nurses.
They must meet certain con-
tinuing --education : credit
requirements every year to
maintain their credentials.
Many nurses complained
about the difficulties of get-
ting to Orlando or Tampa, or
further afield, and while
Internet courses are available,
they are an isolated method of
study. Nurses said they want-
ed the opportunity to network
as well as take in new infor-
mation.
So Key set to work, and
with the financial, help of


Florida Hospital Heartland
Division set up a two-day
seminars featuring Debra
Townsend, the chief execu-
tive officer/president of
Concepts ,for Care and the
National Center for
Compassionate Care.
Townsend, an experienced
registered nurse, is scheduled
to talk about

assessment.
"The semi-
nar will
enhance each
participant's
skill in critical
Key thinking and
bedside analy-
sis," Key said.
"Participants will learn
practical techniqpius for 'dia-
nosing problems with the
body's cardiac, pulmonary,
neuro, and gastro-intestinal
systems, and for dealing with
trauma and the crisis of ill-
ness."
The seminar is designed,
Key added, to provide a flexi-
ble opportunity, with half-
day, one-day, or two-day
experiences.
The full program has been
approved for eight contact
hours each day, or four con-


tact hours for each session,
which will be given at the end
of the program.
Key has booked the
University Center Auditorium
for the event. It seats 250.
The problem, Key said, is
/only 12 nurses have signed
on.
"I'm very disheartened,"
Key said. "They're the .ones
that wanted it. Here we're try-
ing to bring professional con-
tinuing education to the local
community, and the response
isn't what we'd wished."
It is not for lack trying, she
added, saying she has made
the rounds in the county,
including medical institu-
tions, doctor's offices, and all
Three chambers of commerce.
She also sent out tfIers and
.made public sern ice
announcements.
"We want this to be the first
of an annual event," she said.
But that can only happen if
nurses take advantage of the
opportunity.
There is still time to sign-
up, the seminar takes place
May 31 and June 1.
Call Key for further infor-
mation at 784-7033.
SFCC is at 600 W. College

LAKE PLACID Memorial Day is 10
days away. Flag Day isn't until June 14. And
Peace Officers Memorial Day was recognized
Tuesday.
Nonetheless, the American Party of Florida
will be in Lake Placid on Saturday to wave
flags to "give a special nod" to military serv-
ice men and women.
"It is all part of the APF's ongoing attempt
to bring to the attention of the public many of
the lesser-known patriotic days, birthdays and
observances," American Party state chairman
Tom Macklin said in a press release.
Saturday is Armed Forces Day. Party mem-


bers and anybody interested in waving a flag
for the men and women serving in the Army,
Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Air Force,
Reserves or National Guard, are invited.
Macklin said they'll gather from 9-11 a.m.
near the "giant" American flag in Lake Placid
between Dal Hall and Interlake boulevards,
but not in the median.
"These occasions give the APF an opportu-
nity to meet people and put their platform out
before the public," Macklin said.
The party espouses accountability, term lim-
its and legal immigration. It meets at 6 p.m.
the first Thursday of the month at Homer's
Restaurant in Sebring.

Catastrophe turns into a


catalyst for good deed

Wildstein gives contents of home wrecked
by hurricane to Habitat for Humanity


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING After the
2004 hurricanes, Alan Jay
Wildstein, owner of Alan Jay
Automotive, discovered that
his home on Lakeshore Drive
was irrevocably damaged and
contaminated with mold and
mildew. When it resulted in
his daughter's allergies and
asthma, they moved. 'But
because they loved the loca-
tion, they decided to demolish
the house and rebuild on the
lot.
"Then everyone
started asking for cer-
tain appliances, bath
fixtures, etc. I didn't
want it piecemealed. I -
wanted to see real
value come from it,"
Wildstein said.
Involved with Wild
Habitat for Humanity
for over 10 years,.he had a
warm spot in his heart for
their cause and the people
involved.
"Everyone is a part of
Habitat because they care.
Over 100 Habitat houses have
been built here. That puts us
38th in the country, and this
group is more aggressive than
larger cities because of the
leadership here. Executive
Director Jane Breylinger is to
be praised," Wildstein said.
So Wildstein let the Habitat
for Humanity crew into his
home to salvage what they
could. Interior and exterior
windows and doors, copper,
pipes, plumbing and lighting
fixtures, pedestal sinks, tubs,
bidets, mirrors, cabinets, even
a circular wooden staircase
have been removed, in addi-
tion to 100-year-old brick
from Ybor City that had been
in a carme roon
Fi\e air conditioners brick.
glass block, mroldin.g hard-
ware, hinges, locks, switches,
garage doors and openers
were taken out. Specially
lighted front doors of etched
glass, a programmable light-
ing controller, a portion of a
child's playground and even
a fake banana palm tree were
just some of the unique items
salvaged.
"They just removed their
personal belongings from the
house and left all the high-
quality materials for us to dis-
mantle, Habitat Construction
Manager Alan Ball said. "It
took our volunteer crew a
week and a half because there
was so much."
In fact, there was so much
removed that it had to be tem-
porarily stored. The Habitat


Home Supply Store is plan-
ning an advertised warehouse
sale in a few weeks.
"We're very grateful. We
shut down our building sites
and put our volunteers on this
opportunity," Breylinger said.
"Alan Jay took a sick house, a
real negative, and made
something positive out of it to
help our local organization.
He's a wonderful supporter.
"At a cost of $50,000 per
home, he's previously built
five homes for Habitat. This
year, he's committed to build-
ing two more and
these lots in Avon Park
are already cleared.
"If anyone's inter-
f ested in donating
something of high
value like this, we
want it appraised first
stein so they receive a 'tax-
able write off for their
donation."
Although some items will
be used in Habitat homes, the
majority can be found at
Habitat's Home Supply, locat-
ed at 137 South Commerce
Ave.. Call them at 385-7111.
Their hours are Tuesday
through Friday from 9 a.m. to
4 p.m. and on Saturday from 9
a.m. to 3 p.m. The prices are
discounted, running about
one-third the cost of retail.
For more information about
Habitat for Humanity,' call
Breylinger at 202-0702 or e-
mail her at ed@habitat

Florida Anthropological Society holds 59th annual meeting at SFCC


'Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Kissimmee
Valley Archaeological and Historical
Conservancy hosted the 59th annual
Florida Anthropological Society
meeting at the South Florida
Community College University
Center. Archaeologists from around
the state presented papers on their
projects and research this year.
KVAHC is one of 15 chapters of
FAS, which is comprised of profes-
sional and amateur archaeologists.
"We celebrated 60 years this year as
an organization," said Anne
Reynolds, chair 'of the 2007 event.
The conference began on May 10
with a workshop, "Archaeology in
the Classroom," given by Richard
Estabrook, regional director of the
Florida Public Archaeology
Network, and Cassandra Harper,
outreach coordinator.
Booklets of educational projects


from input at the meeting that have
been successful will be published
and shared with all chapters.
Friday the board meetings of the
Florida Anthropological Society,
Florida Archaeology Council,
Florida Public Archaeology
Network, Trail of Florida's Indian
Heritage, and the FAS membership
meeting were held all day. The
Museum of Florida Art and Culture
was open Friday and Saturday. The
reception Friday evening was held at
The Jacaranda Hotel. Hank Mattson,
cowboy poet, entertained.
Saturday began at the University
Center with a continental breakfast
and welcome from FAS President
Sheila Stewart. PowerPoint presen-
tations were 20 minutes each and ran
concurrently in the auditorium and
Room 113 of the University Center.
Two papers and five posters dealt
with progress at the Blueberry site in


Highlands County.
Of particular interest, Dr. Patricia
Griffin gave an interesting paper
about what archaeology was like in
Highlands County 60 years ago. Her
husband, John Griffin, was the first
public archaeologist assigned to the
Florida Park Service. They were
based at Highlands Hammock State
-Park and with Hale Smith, his assis-
tant, they excavated the Goodnow
Mound and Skipper Site.
The University Press of Florida
had archaeology and historical
books available at a discount, and
Dean Sais of Bull Gator
Archaeological Equipment demon-
strated his items. Artist Hermann
Trappman '' and potter Marty
Haythorn had items to exhibit and
sell.
Saturday evening, KVAHC host-
ed the FAS banquet at the Sebring
Civic Center. David Butler intro-


duced the keynote speaker, interna-
tionally renowned Dr. Barbara A.
Purdy, professor emerita, University
of Florida, and author of numerous
books. Her topic was "What is
Archaeology All About? And Who
Cares Anyway?" Awards were given,
and drawings were fun.
Steve and Alayne Busch of Lake
Placid received the KVAHC Chapter
Appreciation Award for outstanding
service. Jessica Clover received the
Second Annual Student Chuck Wilde
Archaeological Research Award of
$500 to be used for archaeological
research costs or participation in a
field work opportunity. Chuck
Wilde, an active member of
KVAHC, dedicated years of his life
promoting education and prioritizing
the significance of South Florida's
archaeological resources. The
California Toe Jam Band enter-
tained, and the evening ended with


dancing.
Sunday morning a bus left the
University Center for a tour of
Blueberry, a significant archaeologi-
cal site south of Lake Placid. The
group was met by others who drove
to the site. David Butler led the tour
and spoke about his ongoing
research at Blueberry.
Charles Reynolds had orange
juice and water available. There
were 42 participants on the tour.
Anyone interested in archaeology,
participating in digs, hearing inter-
esting speakers or going on field
trips, contact Anne Reynolds, 465-
3637.
South Florida Community
College was the perfect venue for
this state meeting. Its cooperation,
technical expertise, and coordination
made the FAS 2007 annual meeting
a huge success.

manager of Seacoast Bank, joined the family of
drama donors in 2006 with partial sponsorship of
a summer camp student. "This year," said Debra
Rutledge, 2007 camp chairpersoni, "Seacoast not
only did a full scholarship of a student, but also
became a Golden Circle Seat sponsor in the cur-
rent amphitheatre seat sale program."
"Lee is also serving as our chairman for the
student camp scholarship and has enlisted
through her committee seven student scholar-
ships," Rutledge said.
"Seacoast's participation in the outdoor drama
is exemplary," said Doris Gentry, president of
Florida Outdoor Drama. "And typical of the
'tremendous support given to this project from the
Heartland community.
"I am always awed, though not surprised, at
the tremendous support given to community


efforts like the drama."
The current Golden Circle Seat sale program is
being chaired by local realtor Rita Youngman.
The goal for this year are the front row seats of
the amphitheatre.
"There are 39 seats available and our goal for
this year is to sell 25," Youngman said. Donors
this year to date are Lake Placid Family
Restaurant, Florida Grove Hedgers, Plaza
Chevrolet, Christy Polk Buchanan Memorial and
Seacoast..
"Our committee is working quietly, but dili-
gently, on the seat sponsorships and, with the
growing interest as the drama enters the final
stage of development, we are confident of reach-
ing our goal. And, of course, first come gets first
choice of front row seats," Youngman said.
Golden Circle Seats are $2,000 payable
over three to five years and have several benefits.
In addition to a brass plate with the donor's name
on the back of the seat, the donor receives eight
complimentary tickets the first theatre season,
two complimentary tickets the second and third
seasons, name listing in programs permanently,
name listed on the Florida Wall of Honor and an
invitation to seat celebrations.

Highlands Dems to attend convention of small counties


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@ newssun. corn
SEBRING About 15
Highlands County residents
will attend the Florida
Democrat Party Small County
Coalition's first convention
this weekend at Gainesville.
Highlands County
Democrat Party chairman
Zane Thomas said Highlands
is bringing twice as many rep-
resentatives as any other
county.
"The coalition has been
around a few years, but it has-
n't accomplished a great
deal," Thomas said.
He hopes to change that as
a new member of the coali-
tion's board of directors.
Counties with 30,000 regis-
tered Democrat voters or less
qualify to be members of the
Small County Coalition.


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING "Music &
Mischief" will perform with
Berri Lee and Ginger at
Tanglewood at 7 p.m.
Saturday. :
Berri is originally from
Australia and was discovered
by Cary Grant while working
in the famous Magic Castle in
Hollywood, Calif. Grant took
him to New York to appear on
the Ed Sullivan show and his
career took off.
Las Vegas, major TV
shows, and touring major
clubs, showrooms and cruise
ships for the past several
years, he has now teamed up
with Ginger for a night at
Tanglewood.
Ginger is an "entertainer"
that has .opened for many
major acts such as The
Drifters, The Coasters, and
The Platters.
Not just a singer but a true


Of Highlands' 62,105 reg-
istered voters, 24,248 are
Democrats and 27,542 are
Republicans. The fledgling
American Party of Florida has
registered 28 people. No party
affiliations account for 8,339
voters and all other "minor"
parties total 1,948, according
to the Supervisor of
Elections' office.
Collectively, Thomas said,
the 40 member counties
(more than half of Florida's
67 counties) should have
more political clout than big
markets such as Tampa,
Miami and Jacksonville.
The challenge, he said, is to
convince the media to recog-
nize this potential.
"All of the rural counties,
over the years, we've been
weeded out and ignored by
the major media markets,"


Thomas, said.
The convention. will focus
on training, analyzing the
small counties' fit with the
Florida Democrat Party and
discussing what went right
and wrong during the 2006
elections.
The coalition will self-eval-
uate, asking, "Is the SCC the
vehicle for increasing the
Democratic vote in small
counties?" and "Should small
counties align themselves
more closely with their larger
regional counties?"
Guest speakers include
state Sen. Dave Aronberg and
state Rep. Charles Chestnut.
For more information about
the Highlands County
Democrat Party, contact
Thomas at 458-0705.

AP s Breylinger helping build nine houses in one week


In Phoenix as part of
Habitat for Humanity's
Whirlpool Building Blocks
Special to the News-Sun
PHOENIX Avon Park
resident Jane Breylinger has
traveled to Phoenix along
with nearly 300 volunteers
nationwide to help construct
nine Habitat for Humanity
houses in one week.
"It is amazing to be here in
Phoenix and see the work that
can be done in just one week,"
Breylinger said. "Whirlpool
Building Blocks makes a dif-
ference, not only in the lives
of the nine families buying
these houses, but in all of our
communities as we join
together to advocate with our
hammers for simple, decent
affordable housing."
The event is the second
annual Whirlpool Building
Blocks project, an initiative
created by the company to
raise awareness of the afford-
able housing crisis and to help
eliminate poverty housing in
the United States.
The build started Monday,
and the homes will be com-
pleted today. Entertainment
icon Reba McEntire helped
announce the project' in
January and will be on hand
for closing ceremonies today.
The Whirlpool Building
Blocks homes are being con-
structed on a recently donated
piece of land in Guadalupe, a
small community between
Phoenix and Tempe, Ariz.
Roughly 300 volunteers trav-
eled to the Phoenix metropol-
itan area for the project,
including Whirlpool employ-
ees from across the country,
volunteers from Habitat affili-
ates and local volunteers rep-
resenting the Phoenix com-
munity.
Each year Whirlpool will
recognize an outstanding
Habitat for Humanity affiliate
in the United States and its
relationship with its local
community by holding a
weeklong build in that affili-
ate's community.
"Whirlpool is proud to part-
ner with Habitat for Humanity
and for the opportunity to
have helped thousands of
American families," said
Tony Chang, general manager
for Whirlpool Brand.
"Whirlpool Building Blocks
will help nine families in
Guadalupe achieve the dream
of homeownership while
spreading the vision of decent
housing for everyone, every-
where. This event has been a
huge success, and we look
forward to another build next
year with another deserving
community."
In addition to recognizing

outstanding Habitat affiliates,
the event also recognizes out-
standing Habitat volunteer
and employees from across
the country. Habitat affiliates
from all 50 states were asked
to nominate an individual
who demonstrates extraordi-
nary commitment to improv-
ing the community through
Habitat. Breylinger was
selected to represent
Highlands County Habitat for
Humanity.


Breylinger first became
involved with Habitat as a
volunteer in Marco Island in
the mid-'80s. She now serves
as the executive director of
Highlands County Habitat for
Humanity.
Whirlpool is one of Habitat
for Humanity's largest corpo-
rate partners. The company
donates a range and Energy
Star-qualified refrigerator to
every new Habitat for
Humanity home built in North


America. Every year, thou-
sands of Whirlpool employees
volunteer their own time to
Habitat builds around the
country. The partnership
began in 1999, and Whirlpool
plans to support every new
Habitat home built globally
by 2011, either through prod-
uct donations, cash or home
sponsorship. The inaugural
Whirlpool Building Blocks
project began in November
2006 in Nashville, Tenn.,


where 300 volunteers from
every state joined forces to
build homes with 10 partner
families in one week.
Highlands County Habitat
for Humanity is an independ-
ent, nonprofit, ecumenical
Christian housing ministry
that partners with people. of
all beliefs. Highlands County
Habitat for Humanity has
been an affiliate of Habitat for
Humanity International since
1990 and has built 102 homes.

He said the state is doing
something new this year by
consolidating food at a central
warehouse in the Orlando
region for distribution as
needed.
This is a break from the
practice of scrambling to
gather these commodities
from scattered locations after
a hurricane has done its dam-
age.
"I think that people are
confident in the state of
Florida's ability to respond,"
Nichols said. "It's the model
state for responding to emer-
gencies and disasters."

"All those people that typi-
cally respond in an emer-
gency situation," Nichols
said, defining the first respon-

specialists, law enforcement,
firefighters that might lose
jobs or funding. "And, I
would like to think of emer-
gency management as a part
of that community."
He said 66 percent ,of his
staff is funded by county
taxes and the remaining one-
third by grants. He said the
county will balance the tax
issue with level of service by
prioritizing critical functions.
In other emergency man-
agement developments,'
Nichols, said the state is in a
reorganization to better define

by the Sebring Airport
Authority Thursday. The rest
of the funding for the project

$98,327 in matching funds

joined her granddaughter,
Kerrie Baker, of Avon Park, in

and Baker has a learning dis-
ability, but .both have found


tremendous benefits in riding
horses in this program. -
Dowswell rides on
Saturday while Baker rides
on Thursday and Saturdays.
There also is a Wednesday
riding program.
While Dowswell showed
great pride in witnessing her
granddaughter being recog-
nized, Baker equally showed
enthusiasm when her grand-
mother's name was called out
to receive a ribbon.
"That's my grandma,"
Baker shouted as her grand-
mother's name was called out
for her ribbon.
All participants received a
ribbon for their efforts in the


program.
Trophies were presented to
the most improved, best effort
and best overall rider in all
three sessions Wednesday,
Thursday and Saturday.
The best overall riders were
Andy Willingham, of Sebring,
for Wednesday; Carrie Baker
for Thursday; 'and Kenny
Stoll, of Sebring, for
Saturday.
The most improved riders
were Cheryl Moore, of Avon

for Wednesday; Tony Bock,
of Sebring, for Thursday; and
Sonny Downing, of Avon

unteers who went beyond the
call of duty throughout the
year. Andra Hendricks was
named Junior Volunteer of the
Year while Sherry Villone and
Kathy Taveniere were. named'
Adult Volunteers of the Year.

Changes in life can


leave us restless


It-must be some-
thing in the spring
air. Or perhaps it is
my 49-year-old
body gearing up to i
be a young senior ,,
citizen. Lately I
have been feeling
kind of ... well ...
restless. Gra
Of late I have
been having this To
feeling of "Is this Kathy
all there is?" I have
been feeling bored, useless,
discarded, unneeded.
I feel guilty about all this
because I'm supposed to be
this "Cathy Christian, the
Answer Woman." I sit solidly
on my faith and get deep sat-
isfaction with my relation-
ship with the Lord. Still I ask
myself and even my Lord, "If
I (or You, Father) were to
look back upon my life 30 or
40 years from now, would I
(or He) be happy with the
outcome?"
I have never married. I
have no children or grand-
children. To be honest, some-
times there are regrets in that
area. However when I see the
lives of friends who are mar-
ried with children or married
and divorced, I am not too
sure if I would be any happi-
er.
So, I ask you, what makes
happiness.?
The Bible talks about deep
joy in the midst of sorrows.
In James 1:2-4, KJV, it says,


rat's
me
y Grant


"My brethren, count
it all joy when ye
fall into divers
temptations;
Knowing this, that
the trying of your
faith worketh
patience. But let
patience have her
perfect work, that ye
may be perfect and
entire, wanting noth-
ing."
Yuck. That isn't


exactly what I was looking
for.
Why doesn't the Bible say,
"My brethren count it ill joy
when ye fall into the arms of
a handsome hunk?" or
"Count it all joy when ye fall,
into the driver's seat of a
steel blue BMW roadster
convertible?"
Lord, I don't want my
faith tried. I'm satisfied
being my own complacent,
perfect, smug self. So, why
am I restless?
Did I just answer my own
question?
My "change of life" can-be
interpreted in many ways.
No, I can no longer bear my
own children, but that does-
n't mean I can't marry some-
one with adult children who.
have their own little ones
running around. I can also be
active with children in my
church or in the community.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yada.

Join together in
saluting veterans
Editor:
With Armed Forces Day
coming up Saturday, we at
the American Party of
Florida would like to salute
the members of the Army,
Navy, Air Force Marines,
Coast Guard and all of the
men and women who have,
and are now, serving the
United States in uniform.
As the state APF chairman,
I would like to further com-
mend the American Legion
for their call on Congress to
reject proposed legislation
that would grant "fast track"
citizenship or amnesty to
illegal aliens. We agree with
them that it is time to reduce
the illegal alien population
through aggressive enforce-
ment of immigration laws
and stronger border security.
Further, we sign on with
their five-point strategy to
address illegal immigration,
which includes securing the
borders and coastline points
of entry; removing the jobs
magnet by imposing and
enforcing employer sanc-
tions; eliminating most social
services benefits for illegal
immigrants; promoting a
strategy of attrition through
enforcement and effectively
screening and tracking for-
eign visitors in the United
States.
We hope citizens will join
us Saturday morning under
the giant American flag in
Lake Placid as we salute our
veterans and service person-
nel.

Shuffleboard is
year 'round fun
Editor:
You all come and have
some fun with us.
Shuffleboard winter season
is over, but the summer sea-
son has begun. It is hard to
see friends go north for the
summer, but we will be on
the courts when they come
back.
The league for. the winter
along with the tournaments
and all of the scheduled open
shuffling is just great fun.
The summer shuffleboard
tournaments are on
Thursday around the area. If
one is working this summer,
most open shuffling in
Sebring is in the early
evening.
Monday, Wednesday and
Saturday are the days for
summer fun.
If one does not know this
game they should not let this
stop them. Come and try it
out to see if they enjoy it or
not. It is a sport that should
be in the school systems
around the country in my
opinion because our youth
are missing a great game that
would not be expensive for
the taxpayer.
The average age group of
the shuffleboard player in
another part of Florida is 35
years old. In Sebring we do
. not have one person this
*young, but we are still trying
to make the game grow and
not old either.
Come to see how much fun
this can be. Sebring
Recreation Club is at 333
Pomegranate Avenue in
Sebring. You will be pleased


at how many new friends you
will make in just one visit.

Memorial Day is a
day to remember
Editor:
On May 28, a Memorial
Day celebration will be at the
Veterans of Foreign Wars
Post 985.3 in Avon Park. It
will also be an emotional day
for we will be honoring more
than 700,000 veterans that
have given their lives for us
to be here today for they
are our heroes that made this
possible. The flag ceremony
is at 11 a.m.
A barbecue is planned at
$5 along with the old-fash-
ioned games horse shoes,
bean bag, volleyball, instead
of egg toss, what about water
balloons ... plus a whole lot
more activities are planned.
Bravo Battery Co. B will
be our honored guests along
with their families to help us
celebrate this meritorious
occasion. Also, we will give
every veteran a free compli-
mentary drink plus a free
ticket that will be on a basket
to be given to the lucky win-
ner. Oh, did I forget to men-
tion, the veteran has to be
wearing a uniform or a hat
(organization type) or ribbon
or medal on their shirt to
receive that complimentary
drink.
Please call 452-9853 or
453-2169 to make your reser-
vations for you and your
family for this very special
day of honoring our veterans.

'The government can and should do many things to

make the softer voices louder (in election campaigns).

But when it tries to make the louder voices softer, it is

reducing speech, which is unconstitutional.'

MICHAEL KENSLEY
Washington Post columnist, 2005


A few weekends ago, I was blessed to
attend a family weekend retreat with my
cousins and their kids and church fami-
ly. It's amazing what a difference a
"few" miles away from home can make.
To say it was relaxing and refreshing
doesn't suffice. It was like a "slice of
heaven" on earth.
We left around 1 p.m. and arrived by
2:30 p.m. It seemed everything that
could go wrong to discourage me from
going, did. But my mom said it proba-
bly would be worth the push, so I
pushed. Come to find out, each of the
folks on our caravan experienced the
same setbacks and had to choose to go
anyway.
My cousin and another lady from the
church with her granddaughter and I
stayed in a motel room right next to the
KOA campground (due to health issues),
While my cousin's brother and kids
stayed in the tents on the campground.
The pastor had a time of worship and


Janelle's
Jargon
Janelle Dennison

study that evening, leading us in songs
of praise with his guitar and even had
some funny songs for the kids. To see
those children surrounding him, singing
their hearts out, praising the Lord really
warmed our hearts. And the pastor
seemed to love having them join in.
What really impressed me about the
pastor was his "down-to-earth" joyful
personality. Seeing that helped me real-
ize why children flocked to Jesus and
the common man would walk for miles
to hear him speak.
Two of the associate pastors also
shared over the weekend from the word
of God about finding your calling, your
shape and how you fit in the Body of
Christ. They were both young (mid-20's


to mid-30's), yet have such a passion for
the Lord.
The children got along wonderfully, I
hardly heard any tattling, or fighting,
etc. The kids watched out for one anoth-
er. None of the parishioners were gos-
siping (not even when the pastor wasn't
looking). Everyone was kind and you
could see it was genuine.
One of the things this pastor and the
leadership teaches, preaches and demon-
strates is caring for one another.
Another thing taught in their many sup-
port groups (from substance abuse to
character defects) is to not interfere in
each other's business, to let the Holy
Spirit do His job on individuals and just
love them as they are.
Evidently Jesus did a lot of that, as
everyone, from the "lady of the
evening" to the merchant came to him.
Yes they knew he was "a prophet," "the

Retreat like a 'slice of heaven' on earth

What politics

should be about

Over the years, I've met
with a lot of high school and
college students, and there's
one question they come up
with time after time: What,
they want to know, is politics
really about?
Having spent a good part
of my life in the trenches, I
long ago arrived at an
answer that I thought reflect-
ed reality and was sufficient-
ly cynical to make me
believable. Politics, I would
tell them, is about power:
getting it, keeping it, and
using it to advance one's
agenda.
At least, that's what I said
until I ran across a comment
bSr the eminent historian
Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., who
died recently. He had a dif-
ferent, and far more useful,
answer. Politics is about "the
search for remedy," he said.
We live at a time when
such a belief seems outdated
and hopelessly earnest.
Americans have watched
their politicians over the
years with increasing skepti-
cism, and come to the belief
that politics is about any-
thing but an honest effort to
resolve the issues that con-
front us. It's about personal
egos. It's about enriching
oneself. It's about winning
elections or wielding power
for its own sake.
What's disheartening is
that politicians themselves
have contributed to this
abandonment of sincerity.
Often they and especially
their consultants -,- talk
about politics as a highly
technical and fascinating
game whose largest purpose
is to experience the thrill of
victory. In one of this year's
gubernatorial primaries,
there's a leading candidate
whose advertising ends in
the tagline, "The only
Republican who can win in
November." Don't get me
wrong; electability is hardly
irrelevant to a primary voter.
But should it be the chief
thing we look for in a politi-
cal leader?
What Schlesinger invited
us to do was to search
beneath the definitions we've
given politics over the years,
and to find an underlying
purpose. All those aboutt"
you hear now it's about
ego, it's about money, it's
about power are partly
true, or at least, true in cer-
tain cases. But they're inade-
quate when it comes to
describing what politics in a
democracy is truly about: It's
how we wrestle with and try
to resolve the challenges that
confront us.
To see why this is so
important, think for a
moment about some of the
tremendously difficult issues
we face. There is a constant
barrage in Washington right

Competitive Free
Enterprise system
Editor:
The latent effect of the
Competitive Free Enterprise
system is to provide more
goods to more people.
I have heard that the rich
are getting richer and the
poor are getting poorer. If
this is so then something is
not right with the
Competitive Free Enterprise
system.
First let us compare capi-
talism and socialism.
Capitalism promotes greed
while socialism promotes
laziness. The greed of capi-
talism is controlled by the
Competitive Free Enterprise
system, but nothing controls
the laziness of socialism.
When we try to integrate the
two systems we loose control
of the greed but retain the
laziness of socialism.
To have competition, two
or more individuals or groups
are required. We generally
think of sports when we
think of competition, but
there is competition every
where we look. All life (ani-
mal and plant) have to com-
pete for survival (survival of
the fittest). Even war is a
competition.
In days gone by a hand

the T's crossed.
As far as I know all
endeavors such as sports etc.
have written rules and regu-
lations except the
Competitive Free Enterprise
system. The only rule that
applies to the, Competitive
Free Enterprise system is the
rule that forbids a monopoly.
Even that rule exempts labor'
unions,,which allows them to
practice mischief.
If there are no written
rules or regulations, how do
we know that the game is
being played correctly. If
there are no written rules or
regulations, how do you
assign any punishment?
The Competitive Free
Enterprise system is unlike ,
sports competition where an
individual or group competes
with other individuals or
groups for a prize. Spectators
pay to watch the contest.
The Competitive Free
Enterprise system is made up
of two or more individuals or
groups (company) producing
goods or services to compete
in the marketplace. We are
all part of the producer and
the consumers.
We may not want to admit
it, but we are all greedy and
we are all tightwads. It all
depends on where we stand
and what the time. When we
go to work we are a producer


and we are greedy, and when
we go to the store we are
consumers and are tightwads.
This is what makes the com-
petitive free enterprise sys-
tem work. Each producer
strives to make a better prod-
uct at a lower price to gain
more customers. That is
until the government inter-
feres.
There is nothing wrong or
illegal for a producer to raise
prices. The problem is with
the consequences. When the
producer raises prices then
fewer units are required and
fewer workers are needed.
Because of compassion, the
government pays the idle
worker. Not only do the con-
sumers pay higher prices for
the goods but has to pay
higher taxes. The same thing
happens when the govern-
ment gives welfare and sub-
sidies. Here again the con-
sumer has to pay higher taxes
and higher prices.
The service industry is
proportionate to technology.
The more technology we
have the bigger ,the service
industry we can have. How
can you tell if the service
industry has the right propor-
tion? The only thing I can
think of is a higher debt in
the service industry.
Governments are a service
industry The biggest service
industry in the nation.
Just how far in debt is our
government? Is there any
correlation to the Lafer
curve?
The Lafer curve'states that
increasing the tax rate will
inficrease revenue. After a cer-
tain point is reached any far-
ther increase in the tax rate
will decrease the revenue.
There is a lot of brou-ha-
ha over the separation of
church and state. Compassion
is the bailiwick of religions
and when used by the state is
nothing more than a means
for politicians to buy votes.
The states' duty is to insure
that the game is .played the
way the game was intend to
be played.
Did you ever hear of the
U.S. Constitution?

You'll notice that in both

something to Schlesinger's

about how those solutions

and perhaps above all, they
think about how to build the

Treasure hunting

for relatives

Recently, a friend asked
me how to get started look-
ing for a missing relative.
The easiest place to start is
with what you know.
First of all, write down
everything you know about
the person and his/her rela-
tionship to you. That
includes all the relatives
that have any connection
with the two of you.
Include as much statistical
information as you can
when you're listing what
you know, such as: place
and date of birth and/or
death, birth parents, infor-
mation, marriagess, last
known address, children or
schools attended.
When we were looking
for a missing sister, my
sibling said, "She was in
the foster system, she had
to go to school in our
county." Sure enough, we
divided up the high schools
that night while on the tele-
phone, and called the
school she graduated from
the next day.
It's amazing how the
most obscure fact can be
the key to finding the lost
relative. When you inter-
view relatives, neighbors
or friends of the missing
person, be sure to write
down all information that
is given to you, even as
irrelevant as it seems at the
time. You would be sur-
prised how often some-
thing you find early on
becomes the information
that leads to a successful
search later on.
Once you have the
basics, you are ready to
begin the footwork. I found'
a wonderful Web site
(www.acpt.lib. in. us/
genealogy/getstart.html) of
the Allen County, Ind.,
Public Library. Allen
County is one of the most
respected genealogical
research centers in the
United States.
The most important
thing to remember is you
do not have to join any-
thing at this point in your
research. Millions of fami-
ly records are available
online; it's a matter of
knowing where to look and
what you're looking for. If
you want to try your luck
online, IFwould recommend
starting at www.ancestry.
corn, http://cyndislist.com
and www.linkpendium.com.
We have the advantage
of having a Family History
Center right here in
Sebring and Wauchula.
They have a membership
with several of the geneal-
ogy Web sites that are-free
to use while you're there
doing research.
The local Genealogy
Society in the Lake Placid
Public Library may be able
to assist you in your search
as well. The Tampa and
Orlando public libraries
also are tremendous
genealogical resources.
If you are able to trace
your relatives to a specific
area, go online to see if
their local library has a
genealogy society nearby.
Oftentimes, members are
willing to do lookups,
especially if you are able to
do a lookup for them.
Document everything
and get started now it's
a treasure hunt!

Quinceanera marks passage into womanhood for Hispanic girls


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
The quinceanera is a 15th birthday celebra-
tion honoring the entrance of a girl into
womanhood, but its more than just a birth-
day party.
The Hispanic custom which can be simple or
extravagant is a cultural tr-
dition that aims to preserve
family bonds and to strengthen
a girl's relationship to God. her
parents and the community.
There have been \ariations
in 'the quinceanera o\er time
and within different Hispanic
cultures. Some parents impose
their ways, while others follow
the girl's wishes for the cele-
bration, but there are general
traditions that are followed.
One of the features of the
quinceanera includes the v'al
.(waltz) or first dance w ith her
father. Fourteen youngg men
(called chanmbetats or
caballeros) represent each
year of the girl's lite and
wear suits or 'u\edos. Gifts
from parents or paJrinos 0
(godparents) are especially
meaningful.
In church. the girl
receives her te deum -
Latin for gi"ling thanks to .
God. In this special cere-
mony known as a insa. the
priest welcomes and reads
special passages from the
Bible and bestow ; a spe-
cial church bles..sing
upon the girl..
: Food arid a special
cake is a great part of
the celebration and
features the parida
del pastel (cake cut-
ting). A white dress
is traditional
because of its s\. m-
bolic meaning of
purity, but, today\
anything goes.
A gift of jev.el-
ry from parents
- such as a ring.
necklace, brace-
let, earrings are
traditional, but
some girls ,.
receive their
first high
heels. For
others, it
might be a
Bible and
rosary.
Toasts for l
their
health, hap-
piness and success
are common. And professional pho-
tography capturing the extent is a big deal.

"I've photographed this memorable event for
girls from so man\ cultures: Americans.
Nicaraguans, Cubans. Jamaicans. NMe\icans.,
and Puerto Ricans. The\ each haie their
unique quinceantura traditions, but the. all
hold the same message.' Pantaleon said.
When Pantaieon turned 15 in 1982. she and
her family had onlN been in the United States
for two years alter lea' ing Cuba
"My parents were economically strapped. I
couldn't even dream of a traditional celebration,"
she said. "Ten of my friends got together. I had a
boom box for music. There were snacks, and I wore
jeans and a black T-shirt with a rock star on it. It was
a good memory.
"It was simple, but the nicest part was the feeling
of sharing that special moment with my friends and
family." -
Angelica Marie Perez's party was on April 7 at
the Elks Lodge. Her dad, Jesus, escorted her for her
entrance. She chose an untraditional song, and per-
formed a solo dance to "Let's Get Ready to
Rumble." For the father-daughter dance, she picked
"My Little Girl" by Tim McGraw.


Both American plus Cuban' foods like roast pork,
rice and beans (congri) were served. There was cake
with a special rose on top.
The party lasted from 7:30 p.m. until midnight.
Lots of pictures were taken, but prior to the event,
Panteleon photographed Angelica at Hollis Gardens
in Lakeland.
"My favorite gift was a necklace from my par-


-j* Mefi


ents. It has a heart with my nickname
engraved on it. It has a crown charm, like a princess
would wear, and it means the most to me. The party
was lots of fun. I enjoyed the entrance, dancing with
my family and friends, and having everyone togeth-
er," Angelica said.
Her mother, Sharon, dedicated the end-of-the-
evening song with Rascal Flatt's "My Wish."
"It's so meaningful to me, and expresses my feel-
ings for all three of my kids to be happy and pur-
sue their dreams. Now Angelica can get her permit
to drive. That's a big step. When I watch her
quinceanera video, my eyes get watery. It all goes
by so fast.


"My other daughter, Alexandra, will be 15 in
December 2008. She has an extravagant personality
and wants a Mardi Gras theme with everyone in cos-
tume.. Every person is unique and each person's
quinceanera reflects them," Sharon Perez said.
Maria and Rigoberto Mejia's daughter Gladys
celebrated her quinceanera on Feb. 7. Prior to the
event, her professional photos were taken at Hollis
Gardens in Lakeland. She wore her quinceanera
dress for an hour-long ceremony that started at noon
at St. Catherine
Catholic Church. A
reception'for 200 of
her family and friends
was held at the
Community Center in
Avon Park afterward.
There was dinner and
dancing, with a small
band playing Mexican
music.
"I danced the tradi-
tional waltz with my
dad, and then danced
with each of my four.
chambelanes. Toasts
were made by everyone.
My parents gave me a
necklace and ring. I'm

NI) sister. Yamilex, is 11

Lots of mo friends cele-

Her mother Maria
remembers her own

ago. "aIt was mut h sim-

"Ka)la's my first and onl) daughter. She's a
great student and we wanted to do something
special. It's a tradition." Lourdes Serralta said.
KavIla's brother crowned her with a tiara before
their 120 guests. A highlight was dancing with her
dad, and there was food and more dancing. There
were special gift favors of little crowns with
Kala's picture on it and also coasters with her
pholo.
There %%as also a touching candlelight ceremo-
n'v with 14 candles. She had chosen 14 people that
she felt 'ere important in her life. As she
approached each person % ith a candle, she made a
wish, blew out the candle, and presented it to each
as a memento.
Her father, Dr. Tad Serralta not only picked a spe-
cial song for their dance, but offered a prayer thank-
ing God for giving her to them for these 15 years
and blessing her future.
Lourdes Serralta remembers her 15th birthday. "It
was 23 years ago in Miami and we couldn't afford a
traditional quinceanera. I was given a ring, and we
took a little trip," she said.
"Being with family ... that's what it's all about.
It's very sentimental and very important," she said.

A (slightly condensed) summer movie preview


Some people dread the summer movie
season, while others look forward to it
all year. While I definitely fit into the
first category, there are always a few
movies that I end up enjoying over the
summer.
I'm sure the majority of moviegoers
are pointing to "Shrek the Third" (which
opens today), "Pirates of the Caribbean:
At World's End" (May 25), and "Harry
Potter and the Order of the Phoenix"
(July 13).as their must-see movies of
the summer. And maybe all three will be
great films.
But there are several movies on the
schedule over the next three months that
aren't getting as much attention as they
deserve. Here are a few films that are
flying under the radar during this busy
summer season, but should be worth a
look:
"Hostel: Part II" (June 8): I realize
this film will appeal to a very limited
audience. As it so happens, that audi-
ence will include me.
The first "Hostel" was a brilliant,
although at times unbearably gruesome,
movie and the best part about it was
how different it was from typical horror
fare. Director Eli Roth, one of the best
young filmmakers around, is part of a
group that is reinventing the horror
genre, and his first "Hostel" film was a
key part of that renaissance. -
Hopefully, "Hostel: Part II" will be as
interesting and compelling as the first
one. But one thing's for certain: with
Roth involved, expect to get your fill of
gross-out moments.
"Transformers" (July 4): OK, so this
film isn't exactly flying under the radar.
But I don't care. It's a live action
Transformers movie!
And I don't even mind that uber-hack
Michael Bay is directing (OK, maybe I
mind a little). "Transformers" could be
the best moviegoing experience of the
whole summer. Or it could be awful.
Either way, it's still a live-action
Transformers movie! And that counts
for something.
"The Simpsons Movie" (July 27): It's



SqU LOKt


- 0


-ED


qi


hard
to


think of a TV show that has been as
consistently funny as "The Simpsons"
over the past 10-plus years. So I, like
most people, have high hopes for the
film version. ,
The only question is, will an expand-
ed version of the TV show work like
"Reno 911!: Miami," or will it drag like
the "South Park" and "Aqua Teen
Hunger Force" movies?
Either way, there's no doubt that the
film will be clever, full of laughs, and
filled with interesting characters. And
it'll probably be the breakout hit of the
summer as well.
If it is, then maybe we can get that
film version of "Futurama" that is so
long overdue.
"The Bourne Ultimatum" (Aug. 3):
This is certainly the summer of sequels,
many of them (such as "Daddy Day
Camp" and "Rush Hour 3") completely
unnecessary. But "The Bourne
Ultimatum" could very well be the best
of the bunch.
The first two films in the series
(2002's "Bourne Identity" and 2004's
"Bourne Supremacy") were both excel-
lent in their own way. Both contained
lots of action and fighting sequences
that were very well done, and the sec-
ond film also featured the best car chase
scene since "The French Connection."
Both Bourne films also featured inter-


testing plot twists that kept the action
fresh and moving, and both contained
the perfect mixture of fighting and plot.
The previews for the third installment
show a movie that looks just as gQod as
its predecessors. If it even comes close
to the first two films, it will be quite an
accomplishment.
"Halloween" (Aug. 31): My first
thought after hearing about the new
entry in the venerable "Halloween"
franchise was simple: "Why?"
But then I saw that Rob Zombie was
directing. And now I can't wait to see it.
Zombie's two previous directorial
efforts were 2003's "House of 1,000
Corpses" and 2005's "The Devil's
Rejects." Both films showed Zombie to
be an inventive, creative, and slightly
disturbed director an excellent combi-
nation for horror films.
And if any franchise needs new life
breathed into it, it's the "Halloween"
franchise. In fact, a case can be made
that the only good movie in the entire
eight-film franchise was the first one -
and it came out 30 years ago!
So while I haven't even seen a pre-
view of this film yet, I have faith in
Zombie to deliver another solid film.
And even if the film ends up being terri-
ble, it'll be much better than
"Halloween 5."
Now, by no means is this a complete
list. "Bug," "Knocked Up," and
"Superbad" also look like enjoyable
films, as does "Ocean's Thirteen" -
although it can't exactly be categorized
as "under the radar."
In the end, there seems to be some-
thing for everyone in this summer
movie season, so enjoy it.
And for those people waiting for
Oscar season to start, look at the bright
side: it's only three months away!

.N. No matter how bad it's going, there's

always someone worse off than you


Often we sit at home, or in
our own little world, feeling
sorry for ourselves, wallow-
SI ing in self pity, thinking that
mo" whatever ails us is worse
than the next person. We go
through life believing, "there
is none like me."
I have news for you:
Whatever ails you someone
is experiencing a similar
problem or even worse.
I think of three amazing
women, two I know person-
ally, the other I view from a
distance. They are Deonte,
111 Linda and Elizabeth
Edwards.
Deonte is struggling with
Prov major health issues. She is
battling Lupu and breast
cancer, added to that she had
a mild stroke, along with the
side effects. She travels to
Lakeland twice weekly for
dialysis. She travels to
Tampa for chemotherapy.
|IN Just thinking about it
makes me exhausted.
Deonte is an amazing
woman. Due to the
chemotherapy, she has lost
her hair. She is now a "Bald
eagle," majestically soaring
a through the struggles she
faces. As a choir leader at,
S- Vision Christian Community
Church in Avon Park, she
never deliberately misses
church or falters on her com-
*- mitment to serve. She still
- continues to work. Through it
- all, she never complains.
- Constantly, she thanks God
- w a for each day she is given;
-- singing, praising and wor-
-- shipping God.
There is Linda beauti-
ful, courageous and bald. I
met Linda as she shopped
for new clothes. Linda, who
was a smoker for years, dis-
covered that she had cancer
three weeks after she quit
smoking.
sLinda is battling lung,
bone and liver cancer. She
was shocked; anger, grief and
pain followed her initial
news. Linda then decided to
fight for her life. Learning
about the disease, loving her-


Em o ring










self more and enjoying each
day, with an effervescent per-
sonality Linda is appreciative
of life. She said when clients
question her bald head at
work she jokingly says, "I'm
just having a Brittany Spears
moment."
Finally, there is Elizabeth
Edwards, wife of democratic
presidential contender John
Edwards. Elizabeth was diag-
nosed with breast cancer dur-
ing the last presidential cam-
paign. She did not disclose
her health issues until the
campaign ended. She was
treated and her cancer went
into remission.
This ugly disease has
reared its ugly head again
and.has returned to attack
Elizabeth. The disease has
spread throughout her body.
She said the cancer is treat-
able, but not curable.
However, this brave woman
insists that her husband John
continue on his quest for the
White House and its presi-
dency.
These truly inspirational
women are faced with trials
as they battle for their lives.
They all have one thing is
common: They love God and
faithfully serve him.

Spring Lake United

Methodist Church
SEBRING Sunday will

Sunday at the Spring Lake

ing and found his heart
"strangely warmed."

"Grace Alone," by Scott
Wesley Brown and Jeff
Nelson, will add to the mean-
ing of this Bible teaching.
The Mixed Ensemble, by

about many of the early

horseback from settlement to
settlement from Amelia
Island to Key West.
The congregation will be

Tongues to Sing," "And Can
It Be That I Should Gain"

A pilgrim's progress in the Holy Land


By LESA J. MORE
Special to the News-Sun
When most people think of
Israel's "Holy Land," their
thoughts turn to Jerusalem,
Nazareth and Jericho. But
when members of the Baha'i
Faith refer to the Holy Land,
they also include lands to the
north to the sites of the
caves of Elijah, to the
Crusades-era fortress of
Akko, and to Mount Carmel,
first made famous by Isaiah
which presides over the
growing Mediterranean city
of Haifa.
It was to Haifa and nearby
Akko that this Baha'i pilgrim
ventured out of Sebring earli-
er this month for a nine-day
tour of sites ennobled by the
people and events that took
place there more than a cen-
tury .ago.
There are advantages to
being a member of a relative-
ly young religion that people
are still hearing about.
Baha'is invited from around
the world can take part, as I
did, in a personal pilgrimage
that includes navigating the
same crooked streets, duck-
ing through the same
armored doorways and walk-.
ing the same carpets once
trodden by the feet of the
founders and martyrs of their
faith. Every year, thousands
of Baha'is make such a pil-
grimage. In the future, how-
ever, there will be just too
many of us to get so up-close
and personal.
When arranging my travel
last August, the modern city
of Haifa was making head-
lines during Hizballah's
bombing campaign on north-
ern Israel. Since then, Haifa
has returned to normal,
though flags are flying every-
where in a show of patriot-
ism, just as Americans did
after Sept. 11, 2001.
As an important deep-har-
bor port and industrial center,
the city attracts a workforce

from across the
Mediterranean and the
Mideast. Haifa prides itself
as a showcase of peaceful co-
existence among Arabs and
Jews. Nearly every public
sign is printed in Hebrew,
English and Arabic. There
were no walls. Its beaches
and Florida-like climate have
made it a quiet tourist desti-
nation, complete with surf-
ing.
I still remember when, in
the mid-1980s, Haifa's city
fathers were delighted when
the Baha'is announced plans
to develop the now-famous
Baha'i peace gardens that
flow up from the sea to the
summit of Mount Carmel.
This month, I finally got to
walk them myself.
For years, Baha'is have
bought up strips of Mount
Carmel overlooking Haifa
Bay below. Although north-
ern Israel has long served as
the Baha'i Faith's World
Center, the region was usual-
ly noted for its many sites
held sacred by Jews,
Christians and Muslims. This
is now changing, with more
recent observers noting how
the area is sacred to Jews,
Christians, Muslims and
Baha'is.
In contrast, Akko, a much
smaller city across Haifa
Bay, retains its fortress
faAade. It is an ancient city
of ruins upon ruins. Through
the centuries it has been set-

tied, besieged, destroyed and
rebuilt by waves of
Phoenicians, Spartans,
Greeks, Romans, Jews,
Crusaders, Turks, the French
and the British. By the mid-
1800s, the once-thriving city
had deteriorated into little
more than a penal colony. It
was said the city had fallen
into such dysfunctional repair
that its very stench caused
the death of birds flying


overhead. Yet, that's where,
in 1868, Baha'u'llah, the
Prophet-Founder of the
Baha'i Faith, was banished -
and imprisoned. He was fully
expected to die a "natural"
death, which would ward off
a politically inflammatory
"'martyrdom."
My fellow pilgrims and I
had the chance to sit and pray
in Baha'u'llah's actual prison
cell, just as a brief but thun-


I


derous and flashing storm
passed overhead. I had to
reflect on how Baha'u'llah's
personal anguish had to have
dug deeper than mere con-
finement and stench: By that
time, His new religion had
already lead to the cruel
deaths of more than 20,000
martyrs in old Persia, to the
east.
But instead of dying or
falling into obscurity in
Akko, the small band of
Baha'is thrived, in spite of
their banishment by two
Muslim governments.
Baha'u'llah remained under
arrest in Akko for 11 years,
using that time to direct a
growing ministry. Although.
eventually freed, Baha'u'llah
stayed in the area, which
remains the Baha'is' world-
wide spiritual and adminis-
trative center.
' Today, Baha'is regard pil-
grimage a duty, as well as a
privilege. As for me, I shared
a privileged experience with
Baha'is from around the
world that dramatically
demonstrated that this is
indeed a world religion
appealing to all countries,
cultures and religious back-
grounds. Everyone is wel-
come.
For my pilgrimage, I trav-
eled to Israel on my own. I
was anxious to meet up with
the 270 other Baha'is in my
group who were likewise
gathering from all corners. I

didn't know a single soul
who would be there, but the
connections made the first
' day were instantaneous. At
Haifa's pilgrim reception
center I met people from all
backgrounds, education, lan-
guage, and social standing.
My journey to these unfa-
miliar and far-off places
reminded me why I became a
Baha'i 32 years ago. I fell in
love with Baha'u'llah, all
over again. Several times, I
was simply overwhelmed,
just bursting into tears. I had
finally grasped a sense of the
extent of Baha'u'llah's per-
sonal suffering for mankind.
Suffering is not new to my
faith's early believers. In
recent years, the West has
learned some of the Muslim
clergy's sense of cruelty, of
their lust for political as well
as religious power. Although-
Baha'is always claimed to be
an independent religion,
many Muslim priests have
consistently tried to paint the
Baha'i Faith as a heretical
offshoot of the religion of
Mohammad.
Despite such hardships at
the hands of "men of God,"
Baha'is still regard religion
as a powerful force for posi-
tive change.

Lesa Morey of Sebring has
been a Baha'i for 32 years,
and serves as group correspon-
dent to the Baha'is of

Streaks, Eagles share similar success


stories heading into state showdown


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING When they face the
Pensacola Pine Forest Eagles tonight at Ed
Smith Stadium in Sarasota for a shot at the
state title game, the Sebring Blue Streaks
will be facing an opponent not too unlike
themselves.
.Contacted as he and his team made their
way down to the big game, Eagles head
coach George Bergstrom noted the experi-
ence on his roster which includes 11 sen-
iors, one junior and three sophomores.
"It's pretty much the same team we had
last season," he said. "We went 16-14 dur-
ing the regular season and.got knocked out
in the second game of the district tourna-
ment."


Not the greatest season, but certainly a
good starting point with the majority of the
team returning.
Things were promising, with the battle
tested veterans. looking to build on the
experience of the year before but the sea-
son didn't start out fast.
'"We had a very tough schedule and we
lost a few games early on," Bergstrom said.
"Our hitting has been consistent all year,
but it wasn't until later in the year, and&
especially the tournament that our pitching
got going and took us over the top."
The offense boasts a pair of .400-plus hit-
ters in second baseman and lead-off man
Justin Fradejas and. pitcher-first baseman
Justin Oehrle.

Shoop and teammates have added motivation


,Death of Shoop's grandfather
pulled team closer together

By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.comrn
SEBRING The elation the Blue
Streaks felt after winning their regional
title last Wednesday night over Tamp
Jesuit suddenly and tragically dissolved to
tears as senior catcher J.C. Shoop's mater-
nal grandfather, Bert Daly, collapsed amid
the excitement with what turned out to be
a fatal heart attack.
Daly, 73 at the time of his death early
Thursday morning, was as ardent a fan of


Sebring baseball as there is, a counted-on
regular at every game and obviously took
even greater joy at the success of this
year's team all of whom knew him
well.
"We've been playing together forever,"
Shoop said of the Blue Streak core of sen-
iors. "I have pictures of him with me as
far back as tee-ball. All of us have always
been real close, but if it's possible, I think
this may have even brought us a little
closer."
And as much as Mr. Daly would have
assuredly wanted it, the Streaks are seeing
the positives of the situation.
"The chemistry on this team has been


SDays spent on the riverbank made for lasting memories


It's a real blessing that an
old codger can remember his
boyhood days, especially the
good days and I enjoyed so
many of them while growing
up in the big city of
Indianapolis.
From the time I was old
enough to dig a worm or
catch a night crawler, my
barefoot summers were spent
on the banks of White river.
The river flowed from
north to south through the
city west of the downtown
area and was the eastern
boundary of our neighbor-
ihood while the Belt Railroad,
'with its' coal fired steam


locomotives belching black
smoke, formed our western
limits.
While ours was not an
ideal neighborhood, it was
made up of good people who
unfortunately suffered greatly
from the financial limitations
of the 1930's Great
Depression.
Thank goodness, children
don't feel the effects of such
hardships as their parents do.
I had a happy childhood
though not entirely ignorant
of our limited resources.
Warm summer days wading
the river to catch crawdads
and later sitting on the bank


Outdoors
Lloyd Jones


using the crawdad tails to
catch sunfish made those
summer days near perfect for
me.
From my forays along the


river I carried home all sorts
of critters, frogs, tadpoles,
minnows and snakes.
Occasionally, mom or dad
would make me empty my
pockets before coming into
the house. Once, secretly, I
put a small catfish in our cis-
tern and fed it table scraps.
We didn't use the water from
the cistern so it made a great
home for one little catfish.
I once found a bone stick-
ing out of the bank of the
river.
The ground was soft, so I
started digging and soon
found more bones. They
looked like human bones to


me so it didn't really surprise
me when I uncovered a skull
with a portion missing.
Putting the bones in a rusty
bucket, I hurried home.
An early Indian burial
ground was once thought to
have occupied the bank of
the river where an earthen
levee was later built.
Thinking the bones were
probably Indian, dad scolded
me and made me return the
bones to the spot where I had
found them.
I waded and fished the


river all summer and every
summer during my early
teens. There was a flour mill,
a slaughter house and several
other commercial buildings
along its eastern bank.
. All had refuse pipes drain-
ing into the river. A little far-
ther down the river the city
had a refuse dump on its
bank. I imagine a lot of gunk
filtered into the river, even
more so when it rained.
This was back in the early
1930s. Like many cities, the
river was used as a dumping

STREAKS
Continued from 1D
They then got another
pitching gem from 6-foot-3
southpaw, Oehrle, in beating
West Florida to send them to
tonight's matchup in
Sarasota.
"Justin (Oerhle) has really
come on," Bergstrom said.
"He's a hard thrower, but he's
got a couple other pitches and
mixes it up well."
Consistent hitting, occa-
sional power and some domi-
nant pitching with the staff
ace also being a main contrib-
utor on offense.
Sounds a lot like a team
they're about to play.
Much like Pine Forest, the
Blue Streaks are a veteran
team.
With a roster of ten seniors,
six juniors and two sopho-
mores, Sebring has the expe-
rience to match the Eagles.
Offensively, the Blue
Streaks also could be seen as
somewhat a small-ball team-
with a line-up filled -with
good contact hitters who
move runners up with hit-


and-runs and sacrifice bunts
with the best of them.
But Sebring also boasts a
few bats with plenty of power
potential.
Batters like Charlie Peck,
Chaz Abeln, Adam Simmons,
Tony Vazquez and J.C.
Shoop, are all threats to send
a pitchers mistake a long way.
And with the likes of J.T.
Tomlinson, Nick Maloyed,
Colt Williams and Ryan
Thorlton consistently getting
on base, Sebring's offense can
put up some runs.
Defensively, the Streaks
are also solid and ably back-
up the mound work of the
right-handed Abeln and lefty
Cory Ritter.
Abeln will get the start, and
from how Bergstrom
described Oehrle, it seems he
is a mirror image of the Eagle
starter hard-throwing with
a couple other pitches mixed
in.
Both teams obviously are
coming into the game on a
roll and would seem to be at
the top of their games.
And tonight, fans will get
to see whose is better.

Devils square off with.Cardinal Mooney for spring game


News-Sun photos by DANIEL HOEHNE
Clockwise from top: Red Devil halfback Virgil Cooper, #3, upends
this Cougar defender as he gets around the end for a big gain. Avon
Park quarterback Albert Moses scrambles from the pocket for some
positive yardage in Thursday's spring game against visiting Cardinal
Mooney. Alvin Hinson, #32, heads for the end zone as Stephen
Robinson provides interference against the Cardinal Mooney pur-
suers. Robinson had blocked a Cougar field-goal attempt and Hinson
returned it for a touchdown, giving Avon Park a 13-7 lead at half-
time. Unfortunately, Mooney scored 10 unanswered points in the sec-
ond half for a 17-13 win over Avon Park.
