Hardee County Fire Rescue firefighters Glenn Karnes and Chris Campbell continue to douse a tanker truck fire Saturday
morning nearly two hours after the fire began. Melted metal and charred remnants were all that remained of the tanker. The
flames were visible from far down State Road 64 (below) which was shut down due to the accident.




Tanker fire closes SR 64


Truck was carrying gas and diesel


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
WAUCHULA A portion
of State Road 64 was closed
through Saturday afternoon
after a fuel tanker crashed in
Hardee County.
Truck driver Fernando
Tirado, 40, Wesley Chapel, was
flown to Tampa General
Hospital with head injuries.
Florida Highway Patrol
Trooper William J. Delaney
said the accident occurred at
7:55 a.m., when Tirado ran off
of the road, overturned and slid
223 feet, stopping in a ditch.
The truck, nhich was full
with an 8,000-gallon mixed
load of diesel and gas, struck a
power pole and righted itself on
top of a barbed-wire fence.
Charges are pending, Delaney
said in his report.
Richard-S. Shepard, Hardee


Cdhint emergency manage-
ment director, said the Tirado
wi a able to get out of the cab on
his own.
Shepard dismissed reports of
e\plosionns s the sounds of var-
ious truck parts giving way.
which "gave the impression and
sounds of an explosion."
Eastbound Tirado was about
a mile east of Charlie Creek
Mobile Home Park.when\he ran
off the road.
"It's ugly, that big column of
black smoke," Shepard said.
"But, it's preferable to having
(the fuel pIill inro the ground."
Bec.iaue of liie power lines
above the tanker, he said it was
safer for firefighters to assume
a defensive stance than combat-
ing the blaze.
Because most of the fuel was
allowed to burn away, Shepard
added, the environmental


,impact was less severe than a
more voluminous spill.
The company that owns the
truck involved in the crash
hired a company to conduct an
"emergency response," assess-


ing the environmental damage
and cleaning up the site.
Winds from the northeast
sparked concern that some

organ transplant

SEBRING Baby
Malikiah is home again
with a new stomach, intes-
tines, liver and pancreas.
The 1-year-old was born
with microvillus inclusion
disease, which doctors said
often claims children's lives
in their first year.
"It's a relief," Dell
Hosteen, Malikiah's 'father,
said Thursday. "It's a lot off
of our shoulders. We're
happy with the way every-
thing went."
For most of his life,
Malikiah was nourished via
tubes attached to his chest,
and now through his nose.
The baby lost the instinct
to eat orally and is receiving
therapy to learn, Hosteen
said.
Malikiah was rushed to
Jackson Memorial Hospital
in Miami on Jan. 28, when
the family learned that
organs were available.
He spent the next three
months there, his mother
and two brothers living in a


nearby motel while his dad
worked in Sebring. When
he could, Hosteen visited.
"I've been working as
much as I can,' Hosteen
said. He took what hours he
could at Carlini's automo-
tive shop, putting bill pay-
ments ahead of quality fam-
ily time. "I think I sacri-
ficed more than I should
have."
He didn't see wife
Shauna and his boys as
much as he would have
liked. And his family grew
March 12 with the unex-
pected birth of Malcom.
"It was a surprise," Dell
Hosteen said.
His older sons, 5-year-old
Joesiah and Mathias, 3, help
out where they can.
"Especially the oldest, he
understands what's going
on," Hosteen said. "The
younger one follows the
older one.".,
After leaving Miami,
Malikiah spent several-
weeks at All Children's.
Hospital in St. Peterbbuig.
He returned to Sebring May
8.

SEBRING The last time retired Rear
Adm. Leroy Collins Jr. visited Highlands
County, he was in the back seat of an F-16
that strafed the Avon Park Bombing Range at
500 knots from 500 feet.
On Saturday, he drove his car to the
Candlelight Restaurant at Sun 'N Lake to
address the Military Officers Association of
America.


Gov. Charlie Crist appointed Collins in
January to the Florida Department of
Veterans Affairs' top spot. Collins, a sub-
mariner, ran a failed bid for U.S. Senate in
2006.
"This last election I felt I had something
to say," he told the gathering of about 30 vet-
erans from across the branches.
Collins said he entered the race too late

'If we can't ride ... it's terrible'


Couple are hard-core bike riders at ages 82 and 79


The News-Sun www.newssun.com


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Meet Vic and Lee
Mears.
They're 82 and 79, respectively,
though Lee Mears claimed, "You
could say 40."
They've been cycling for 30 years.
From their Jackson Heights home in
Sebring they ride almost daily, cover-
ing 20-25 miles at a time.
Up until last year, they used to ride
one mile for each year of the birthday
boy's or girl's age. Last year, when
Vic Mears turned 81, they split the
birthday ride into two days.
May is bicycle awareness month.
In Central Florida, however, the tim-
ing may be off. During snowbird sea-
son, cyclists of all abilities take to
the streets, trails and sidewalks of
Highlands County.
Some are clad in spandex shorts
and colorful, sponsored-covered jer-
seys on their race-ready bikes.
Others wear jeans or shorts and
knee-high socks while they ride their
beach cruisers, comfort bikes and
grocery-getting tricycles at a pace
that allows them to smell the roses
without actually stopping.
"We slowed it down; we used to
take longer rides on the weekends,"
Vic Mears said.
He is a retired Pacific Bell installer
and repairman. They moved to Avon
Park from Napa Valley, Calif., then
they moved south to Sebring. She
was an usherette for the San
Francisco Giants, Golden State
Warriors and San Francisco 49ers.
Weekdays, they typically ride
through Sun 'N Lake. On the week-
ends they stretch it out a bit, riding to

Vic Mears (right) and wife Lee talk about their love for cycling with their
bike-turned-lawn-ornament in the background.


State Road 66 via Brunns Road,
Hammock Road and C.R. 635.
"We used to go on breakfast rides
on Sunday, but we don't do that
anymore, Vic Mears said.
Lee Mears explained, "Where we
go now, there's no restaurants. So I
come home and feed him."
She rides a 1973 Schwinn
Paramount. His is a 1979 Schwinn
Paramount.
"Yeah, they're old like us," Lee
Mears said, cracking a smile.
"They're both chromed," Vic
Mears said of the shiny bikes. "We
used to do a lot of rides and the guys
got to know us on account of the
bicycles."
Because it's bicycle awareness
month, the News-Sun asked the
Mearses what message they would


like to convey to the motorists they
encounter.
"They're supposed to share the
road," Vic Mears said, matter-of-fact-
ly. "And we're supposed to obey all
the laws of the cars."
Helmets, properly fitted, are rec-
ommended but not required for riders
17 and older.
Cyclists should ride with the flow
of traffic, no more than two abreast
and as far to the right as is safe. If
traffic is particularly heavy or the'-
road narrow, it's advisable to ride sin-
gle file.
Bicyclists should use their hands to
signal turns and when they're stop-
ping. Stop, yield and all other signs
apply to cyclist as much as they do to
car drivers. For night riding, Florida
requires white headlights,.red tail


lights and rear reflectors all can be
purchased locally for less than $25.
Cars should pass bicycles with care
- a 2006 Florida law requires a min-
imum buffer of 3 feet.
"What irritates me the most are the
kids over at Hill-Gustat," Lee Mears
said, reiterating that bike riders are
responsible for safety as are car driv-
ers. "They're all over the roads in the
morning."
In the end, they asked the public to
be safe on the road, whether in a car
or on a 14-year-old Schwinn.
Their old-school style extends
beyond riding classic Schwinns.
An old bike adorns their front
lawn. Completely whitewashed, it's
the centerpiece of the yard. Its bas-
kets are planters.
They don't have Internet, or even a
computer for that matter. They don't
have cell phones. And Lee Mears
once chided a cyclists by asking him,
"What would you do without your
cell phone!?" when the 33-year-old
went to place a call during a break.
He ended up not calling.
They have one telephone in their
house and an answering machine.
"And no DVDs or PPPs," Lee
Mears said jokingly.
After a si \-month courtship, tlhe\
married. 60 years ago. In their retire-
ment, they're volunteers. And they.
ride.
Cycling, simply, is their lives
"That's it, that's what we do," Lee
Mears said.
Why?
"That's a 'ill. quevion." Lee
Mears said, laughing out loud and at
the questioner. "We .just love it. If we
can't ride ... it's terrible."

HAART program


draws rave reviews


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.chiisty@new'ssun.coiin
Highlands County is quick-
ly becoming a model for edu-
cating academically talented
students.
The program, called
Highlands Advanced
Academics Rising Together
(HAART) is in place at all
elementary and middle
schools.
It's also expanding'at some
schools to meet the needs of
more students for the 2007-08
school year.
"It's the most exciting
opportunity I have seen for
advanced students in my
entire career," said Sun 'N
Lake Principal Diane
Lethbridge, who also has a
master's in gifted education
and has been an educator
since 1965. "I've never seen
anything like this."
The cost of the HAART
program is low. There isn't
any additional bussing, and
the program works with the
resources it has.
They use teachers already
at the schools that volunteer
to take five graduate level
classes to obtain what is
called a gifted endorsement.
"The staff is willing to take
courses to become certified to
teach gifted," said Russ
Lethbridge, who is in charge
of the HAART program at
Cracker Trail Elementary
School.


"It's inexpensive and the
same techniques work for
HAART students- perfec-
tionism, drive, teaching them
to take their abilities and run
with them."
The program, he said, is not
about giving students more
work, but different work that
challenges them.
Students are accepted into
the HAART program based on
their standardized test scores
along with teacher recommen-
dation, ensuring the right stu-
dents are in the program.
"It's flexible and the whole
idea is not to have it exclusive
but have it as big as it needs
to be to,service students need-
ing additional challenges,"
Lethbridge said. "Students
that belong don't get exclud-
ed."
HAART teachers at Sun 'N
Lake Elementary are able to
accelerate the curriculum and
see how far students can go.
They incorporate literature
into the lessons and the pro-
gram provides enrichment and
independent activities instead
of repetition where facts are
drilled into students' heads.
"We get to do more things
than most classes would ever
dream of doing," said Allisa
Manley, a third-grade
HAART student. "It's more
exciting and I liked every-
thing our teacher taught us
and everything we had to do."
Manley said her favorite

tions, dioramas, papers and posters littered the classroom.


subject is math, but she likes
reading too and can't find
enough books to read.
Her mother, Marsha
Manley, has seen a change in
her daughter since entering
the advanced classes.
"She is challenged where
she wasn't before," she said.
"She is so excited about
school now. She always liked
it but now she can't wait to
get there."'
The biggest problem the
program has run into is com-
munication.' Lethbridge said
they keep the lines of commu-
nication open but its hard to


make sure parents know what
HAART is and how their chil-
dren fit into it.
For this reason, there has
been a parent information
meeting the week before
school starts each year.
Parents are encouraged to
attend the meeting, which
deals with the purpose of
HAART.
"Parent involvement is crit-
ical. Parents have a very
strong voice, both what is tak-
ing place and whether their
child is a good fit for
HAART," Lethbridge said.
"Parents also have the option


of keeping their student in
regular classes; we honor par-
ent requests on that."
Mary Comers, a fifth-grade
HAART teacher at Sun 'N
Lake Elementary School, had
one warning for parents about
students that go from straight
A's to B's and C's.
"They need to still be
proud, that's hard to get par-
ents to understand. Successful
to me are A's, B's and C's
every once in awhile," she
said.
"If they are making straight
A's and not being challenged,
they aren't really learning."


Preliminary VPK Provider Readiness Rates released


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Early Learning
Coalition of Florida's Heartland Inc. on
Friday announced preliminary 2005-06
Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK)
Provider Kindergarten Readiness Rates,
which measures how well a private or
public VPK provider prepared 4-year-
olds for kindergarten.
Rates are calculated by the Florida
Department of Education and are avail-
able at https://vpk.fldoe.org. Friday's
announcement includes individual readi-
ness rates for the 59 providers within
Highlands, Charlotte, DeSoto, and
Hardee counties.
The VPK Provider Kindergarten
Readiness Rate is based on the scores of
children who attended VPK and who are
screened upon entry into kindergarten.
The screening is administered by dis-
trict public schools to all public school
kindergarten students. Children who par-
ticipated in VPK and attended a non-pub-
lic school for kindergarten were also pro-
vided the opportunity to participate in

Readiness Screener, which includes
selected measures from the Early
Childhood Observation System and the
first two measures of the Dynamic
Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills


- those measuring Letter Naming
Fluency and Initial Sound Fluency.
To calculate the rate, each part of the
screening tool is assigned a percentage
based on the number of students ready..
For example, if eight out 10 students are
ready for kindergarten on the ECHOS,
the VPK provider would receive 80 per-
cent
The, sum of all three screening results
is totaled to establish the readiness rate
of the VPK provider. The highest rate a
provider could receive is 300 (one hun-
dred percent for each of the screening
tools).
Not all providers received readiness
rates. Readiness rates were only .calculat-
ed for providers with a minimum of four
students enrolled in the VPK program for
85 percent or more of the total instruc-
tional hours and whose students were
screened in each measure.
A dispute process is available to
providers who believe their rate is not
accurate.
Providers disputing their readiness
rate must submit the appropriate docu-
mentation and forms to, the Department
of Education within the next 14 days.

Malikiah still has weekly checkups at All
Children's. He's on 13 anti-rejection
medications, which are infused into the
baby three times a day.
Hosteen credits boss Thomas Carlini
for supporting him through the family's
roller-coaster ordeal of waiting on a
transplant list and not knowing whether


Malikiah would live to see the proce-
dures.
"He's one of the main reasons I was
able to keep working and take the time
off I needed," Hosteen said. "Tom's a
good guy. I owe a big thank you to him."
He also thanked the. community for
their prayers, encouragement and finan-
cial support.
Katlyn Hammortree, Miss Highlands
County 2006, was instrumental in raising


$3,500 for the family's expenses -
which includes travel, lodging and resid-
ual medical bills. Most of the surgery
was covered by insurance, Hosteen said.
The Sebring High School Art Club
raised $4,200 in January, club president

As executive director of the

Veterans Affairs, a function of
the state that is largely funded
by the federal VA department,
he oversees the agency's two

nursing homes.
Though the six homes cost
about $20 million annually to
operate and maintain, Collins
said there's a move afoot, at
the federal level to convert'
thehomhies from t(no-person to
single-person rooms.
"I'm trying to avoid getting
to the point where we have to
increase space by 50 percent

said, noting the issue isn't just

"We talk a lot about hurricanes, and that's our
focus right now," he said. "But, we respond to all

made. This is a reminder to all of us, and to our
emergency management offices, to check our

Florida's veterans.
Florida is second to
California in having the most
veterans per capital.
Of the Avon Park Bombing

Confessions of an up-the-creek, wannabe geek


TOFFIN' IT

WITH TUFFLEY

Christopher Tuffley


It just seems so unfair.
I didn't ask to be born in
the middle of the 20th centu-
ry.
I could have lived a ful-
filled existence never having
seen "Leave It To Beaver" or
"American Idol."
And while I am glad to '
live in an era of easy food
gathering, if I'd never heard
of Pop-Tarts I would have
survived.
Oh, I admit that some
modern conveniences have
made living easier or more
fun -Swiffer dusters and
lava lamps spring to mind -
but it seems to me that for
the most part, for every
advance there is an unexpect-
ed consequence that turns
thatadvance into a break-
even proposition.
I've read somewhere, for
example, that in spite of vac-
uum cleaners, dishwashers


and clothes washers and dry-
ers, it still takes the same.
amount of time to clean a
house as it did 100 years
ago.
However, despite d
my skepticism
about all things new
and electric, I'm
calm about most of
our technological
changes until that
is, we get to computers.
Then my palms sweat.
Now I know a lot of you
think computers are the
best thing since sliced
bread. Arid Phave to j
admit computers have
their uses like slicing
bread and provide a
lot of amazing modern-
day magic like the wa',
they slice bread.
But one of the things t.ia
drew me to journalism wai;
the delightfully old-fashi'oned
occupation it is.
I mean, what is more basic
than venturing out into the
world as a witness, jotting
notes, coming back to a
desk and writing down whia
you saw?
Herodotus, Johann
Gutenberg, Ben Franklin and
I-are not all that different. We
all have to listen and corrob-
orate what we hear. We all
have to compose our
thoughts and double check
what we've written.
To a large extent then
reporting remains an intimate
enterprise, a matter of one on
one between individuals; of
eyes and ears; pens and
p.pcr .. .,,,.. . .
O-nl, of courIe, the act of


C)


S

U


reporting has been affected
by generations of change in
technique in how the
reporter gets to the story, in
how the news gets put on the
page and in how the page
gets to your door.
Change started out slowly,
and then gathered speed.
For centuries, news trav-
eled by word of mouth. Some
societies de eloped '. ll --
boards where reports..were


written out, but people had to
travel to them.,
Then, 560 years ago,
Gutenberg invented movable
type. Suddenly, the news
could do the traveling.
Herodotus would have
marveled at the clarity and
consistency of the print, and
at the speed with which idein-
tical copies were made.
A. little more thli.n 300
years later, the.techlnolog


was still so similar that,
Franklin was working a press
Gutenberg could have operat-
ed without any instruction.
And Herodotus would still
have marveled at the clarity
and consistency of the print,
and at the speed with which
identical copies were made.
In the nearly two and a
half centuries since Franklin.
was a pressman, many,
improvements have made the
machines larger, faster and
more versatile. Yet, as differ-
ent as they are today from-
then, presses still remain
e enough the same, in
both form and func-
tion, that both
Gutenberg and
Franklin would rec-
ognize one for what
it is, even if they
couldn't figure out
how to operate it.
But Herodotus
would probably
have to sit down,
overwhelmed with
amazement, before he
could marvel at any- -
thing at all.
Which brings the dis-
cussion back to the news-
room and this week's adven-
ture, which occurred in-house
and out of necessity.
That is because there has
been another change swirling
around the printed page. A
change so tremendous it has
been characterized as a revo-
lution in information.
Think of all thee iew ways
people have of staying cur-
rent, all the new ways of
iLccei, ing the news alL-the. ..
time -over the air '.aes,'


over cable, over the Internet
- and it becomes clear, how-
ever successful the newspa-
per, however satisfying the
act of reading, the page has
its challenges.
Which means of course,
that newspaper people have
challenges tqo.
Mine has come in the form
of a computer.
Now, I started thi' job hav-
ing never owned a computer.
It's not quite as strange. as
it sounds. I graduated from
college before the PC revolu-
tion, taught in schools where
the computers were in labs
taught by a special teacher,
and then sold used books in a
quaint store right out of

screaming ever since.

Remembering a hero and a friend


Back in 2003, I was just an
.* innocent college student
S when someone told me a
- 1* long-time friend of mine died
in the line of duty.
I was 21 years old and so
, was he.
S- _.* I knew Officer Daniel
Starks from Cub Scouts on.
,, Honestly, I knew him since
kindergarten or before, and
he gave his life to serve and
protect us.
He was unique and I want
to share his memory with the
folks of Highlands County
and to remember him, last
week being Peace Officer
Memorial Week.
4 0 Some.say he had a heart of
gold, but even that falls short
Sof giving this outstanding,
one-of-a-kind individual the
credit his character deserved.
Starks was like'no other
person I have ever met. He
was a joy to be around and
"" - his sense of humor could
. make both your teenager and
grandparents laugh. My mom
owas active in our scouting
- troop when we were little,
and she adored Starks and his
., whole family.
S-_ Even six hours away in
S^ Tallahassee, I visited my
home town of Fort Myers on
occasion and ran into Starks,
proud to see him in the Fort
"- Myers Police Department
S uniform.
- It has been hard on a lot of
my friends and his family,
and unfortunately finishing
-- school I was not able to stay
in touch with everyone as I
-. would have liked, but Starks
S .- is still in my thoughts.

thoughts, but at the same
time thoughts that accept his
career choice for what it is
and thank him for making
what is truly the ultimate sac-
rifice, contributing to the
safety of the community, the
state and the nation.
Although rare, without
people like Starks out there
to make the world a better
place I would hate to imagine
what it would be like.
He touched the lives of
everyone who came in con-
tact with him and I could see
that through tear-filled eyes
when I made the trip to Fort
Myers to say my final go6d-
bye.
The whole event was sur-
real.
I remember hearing stories
from Officer Starks a few
years earlier, while he was
still training to become an
officer. He pulled my brother
over and gave him a ticket
for a broken taillight while I
was away at school.
I had heard the story
before, from my brother, but
had no idea Starks was the


officer. My little brother was
so terrified of being pulled
over at age 16 that he didn't
even recognize our childhood
friend.
We shared a laugh at that
story, the last clear memory I
have of our time together.
The night some of us will
never forget, Starks was on
his first night on patrol alone,
having completed a rigorous
training program and being
active with the Fort Myers
Police Department as an
Explorer/Community Service
aide for five years.
That night he was killed in
an automobile accident while
responding to backup officers
involved in a high speed pur-
suit.
To me, it was more unfor-
tunate than losing a friend.
Instead, I feel the whole
world lost a great man.
This man was young,
which always seems to make
things harder, but he was also
a fair, honest person and I
have no doubt he brought
those essential qualities with
him to the job every day.
Other honorable men have
since fallen in the line of
duty, an unfortunate risk they
take every day at work.
So let us ask very little of
them. During traffic stops
don't make their job harder
than it already is and give
them the respect they
deserve.

It's how Daniel would
want it.

What is


ghetto?

Ghetto what is it? It's a
word used descriptively and
embraced by certain individ-
uals within the black com-
munity.
Historically, the ghetto.
was designed for the Jewish
people following the holo-
caust'. Through hardv workk, "'
and ambitfbus determination;
the Jews escaped the stigma
attached to that community
and excelled beyond the
boundaries that was inflicted
on them during a difficult
period in history.
Today, the word ghetto is
used to define an attitude, a
community, a thing, a per-
son. Ghetto is used as a
noun, adjective, or a
verb. Statements, like
"That's so ghetto" "You are
so ghetto." 'Your are ghetto-
licious." "You're acting ghet-
to" "You're ghettofabulous."
However, all that "ghetto-
ism" stigmatizes a certain
race of people.
Martha Stewart remarked
See GHETTO, page 14A

Sometimes, teachers teach the wrong lessons


I like teachers. Once upon a time, I
was a teacher. So I can say that I know
they don't have an easy job and most of
them work hard to teach young people.
So I'm usually pretty understanding
of teachers. I figure teachers, being
humans, can sometimes make mistakes
and not automatically be bad teachers.
But then there are the mistakes like
the ones I'm about to list that go beyond
understanding. These are terrible errors
"" in judgment. These people are what give
the vast majority of teachers a bad
name.
For example, let's look at some of the
staff at a Murfreesboro, Tenn., elemen-
tary school did during a weeklong trip
to a state park. They got together and
-- decided to surprise the students with a
- fictitious gun attack.
We're talking sixth-graders here.
We're talking about a month after the
horrible shootings at Virginia Tech. The
staff, the last night of the trip, told the


Laura's
Look
Laura Ware
kids a gunman was loose. The kids
were instructed to get on the floor or
hide beneath tables and stay quiet. To
top off the scenario, a teacher wearing a
hooded sweat shirt rattled the locked
door.
Someone the article doesn't say
who got the brilliant idea to turn the
lights out on these 69 frightened kids.
How do you think those kids felt, hav-
ing been told this wasn't a drill?
Assistant Principal Don Bartch
claimed that it was meant to be a learn-
ing experience, and then afterwards
everyone got together and talked about
what they would have done in a real sit-
uation.
Learning experience my foot. That
staff terrorized those children. I'd ask
what they were thinking except I can't


believe they were using their brains at
all. No disciplinary measures have been
announced yet but I hope some people
get walking papers for this one.
Our second example involves a sub-
stitute teacher in Chicago. Let me pause
here and say I have done substitute
teaching and people who do it and stay
with it are incredible. They go into a
classroom of immature human beings
who usually look at a substitute the way
a lion would look at a helpless gazelle.
Armed only with a planning book and
an outdated seating chart, they are
expected to maintain order, and maybe
even teach a thing or two.
Given that daunting task I'm not sur-
prised that one substitute chose to show
a film to the class of eighth-graders she
was in charge of. What makes this out-
rageous is that the film was "Brokeback
Mountain."
In case you don't follow stuff like

on her television
program that she "can get
ghetto when she needs to."
Heiress to Ihe Hilton empire,
Paris Hilton, also feels that
she can be ghetto. A group of
students were having lunch,
someone told a joke and
laughter erupted, a teacher
interrupted their laughter and
retorted, "This not the ghetto,
leave that kind of laughter
for .it."
Journalist and author of the
book "Ghettonation," Cora
Daniels said, When we talk
about folks being ghetto or
keeping it real, that's a slop-
py substitution for being
black. Ghetto is not being
black. We're the only com-
| munity that treats ourselves
with such disrespect."
Daniels feels that by con-
sciously adopting the behav-
ior associated with ghetto,
our standards and expecta-
tions are being lowered..
I have known people who
grew up in a poor neighbor-
4" hood, have'had some success
S in life and yet refused to


: g


leave the neighborhood.
Some experts believe that
those individuals are fearful
of venturing in to a more
controlled environment, and
that their reluctance to relo-
cate to a more upscale neigh-
borhood has nothing to do
with not wanting to abandon
their friends. They are more
comfortable with things of
which they are familiar.
As adults, our concept of
life and our environment is
misleading our children. We
don't need to demean our-
selves, or lower our stan-
dards. It's time that we step
up to the forefront and be
what God wants us to be, and
do it respectfully. Whether it
is to be a world class finan-


cial leader on Wall Street in
New York, a chief executive
officer of a large corporation,
a model strutting our stuff on
the run ways of Milan, or a
janitor ... do it with high
expectations.
As a community it's our
right to honestly embrace the
best without hesitation. Leave
the ghetto where it belongs, in
the historical archives.

this, "Brokeback Mountain"
is a film about two cowboys
who are secret homosexual
lovers. The film was rated R.
A 12-year-old girl who
was in the class and her
grandparents are suing the
Chicago school board as well
as the substitute, alleging
psychological distress.
Now, let me make some-
thing clear: the fact that I
find the content of
"Brokeback Mountain" dis-
tasteful has nothing to do
with my labeling this as hor-
rible behavior on the part of
a teacher. If she had shown


"The Passion," a film that I
feel was a good film but is
also rated R, I would still list
her. This is about the fact she
chose to show age-inappro-
priate material to a group of
middle school students with-
out getting permission from
their parents or guardians.
It was, at the very least,
poor judgment. And if the
substitute teacher in question
can't tell what is and isn't
appropriate ways to deal with
a class then she should go
back to school as a student

Bark Park a place where old dogs can learn new tricks


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Bark Park is
Sebring's newest play park
for owners with canine com-
panions. Here the pet is legal-
ly allowed to be off leash and
encouraged to run and play
with other dogs.
Owner Dana McPherson
has loved animals all her life,
earlier focusing on horses and
rodeo. For the last 10 years
she has groomed dogs, and
her love of the animals led to
her successful grooming salon
and boarding facility at this
same location. She believes
her innovative Bark Park will
create healthier, happier
canines.
"I believe proper exercise
and socialization is impera-
tive to the health and well-
being of pets and the lack of
exercise is the number one
reason a dog will misbehave.
Sometimes a leisurely walk is
not enough. Besides, by
nature they are pack animals


and love to be together and in
a group of dogs," McPherson
said.
Situated on three acres,
Bark Park has four different
sections designed specifically
for your pet's needs: Serenity
Corner is for docile, quiet,
timid, and calm dogs. With
both sun and shade, your dog
can play in peace and social-
ize in a stress-free environ-
ment with other like-minded
dogs. The Down and Dirty
Corner is a high-energy play
area for dogs who love to play
in the water and romp in, the
sand hill. The Play Pen is for
those dogs that are social and
like to play hard, or relax in
/the shade, but without all the
mess. Tornado Alley is for
those dogs that don't socialize
well with other dogs, but need
exercise.
The park features privacy
fencing, screening, and secu-
rity, environmentally safe and
pest-free grounds. There are
swinging tire toys, a water


pond, sand pit, hammocks,
benches and water misters.
Retail toys and refreshments
are also available along with a
self-serve dog wash. "
I love dogs and I've tried to
create a doggy heaven here,"
McPherson said.
The Bark Park is open
Monday through Sunday from
8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. A one-
time registration fee per dog
is $20. This includes a tem-
perament test to ensure com-
patibility with other dogs.
Current shot records are
required, as is a wellness
evaluation from a vet certify-
ing that the pet has been de-
wormed and has received flea
and tick control.
A day pass is $5, and a
monthly pass per dog is $25
plus $5, for a second dog. A
yearly pass is $250, with $50
for an additional dog. The
first key card costs $10. Use
of the Bark Park is free of
charge to any therapy and
service dogs. To register your


dog, call 314-9883 for a
scheduled appointment. Part
of their rules and regulations
include a prohibition for
females in heat and puppies
less than four months.
After a romp at Bark Park,
you dog will be tired, but
happy. A $7 self-serve dog
wash features a raised tub,
choice of professional sham-
poos, towel, brush, and comb
and dryer. That way your pet
is clean when he gets into
your car and enters your
home.
Call 314-9883 or go to
www.dogdesignsbydana.com
for more information. Bark
Park is at 701 Thunderbird
Hill Road.

many ways to introduce photographs into
system, that I feel like Herodotus most of
time.
And the worst part is, I have to be caref
and not miss a step, out of dozens of steps
I end up in what I think of as La-La Land
where no matter what I do I keep going in
circles, ending up where I started, or hope
lessly lost in some out-of-the-way window
unable to find a way out. I have been knox
to re-boot six times in three minutes.
Apd no matter how loud I yell at the coi
puter, or threaten it with hot coffee, I keep
going in these circles again and again.
Until someone takes pity, or gets tired o
my moaning, leans over my shoulder and
does some quick click, click, click thing, a
suddenly what I need is right in front of m
Just like magic.
Only of course, just like magic I have no
idea how they accomplished the trick.
That was the first week.
I've made a little progress. That is becal
I've made myself cheat sheets, complete v
icons and arrows pointing the waylike-a
- map. .


For instance I finally learned how to adjust
the image of a photograph not change it
mind you, that is taboo but improve the
the contrast so it will reproduce clearly I click
the on Image, scroll down to Adjustments, where
I choose from various options, like something
ul called Curves.
That's kind of neat. There is a box with a
, or
line running diagonally through it: Using my
mouse I can bend the line up to lighten the
S picture, or down to darken it.
Unfortunately, there are dozens of those
wn kinds of helps, so I've got my work cut out
for me. But at least having figured one thing
m- out I have a little hope now,, and even look
forward to next week.,
The point of all this is to offer comfort to
f those of you who, because of technology run-,
ning amok, are facing adventures in your own
ind work space, like having to master machines
e. or assignments you never thought you could.
You can.
o Believe me. If I can make my peace with
modern-machinery, then anything, anything at
all, is possible.

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop

Leftovers ...

a good thing
Years ago we had the
unique privilege of living
with a couple who rented
their house to families in
transition.
We had just sold our
home and were in the
process of building another.
Having three energetic
young boys could have
made renting difficult had it
not been for this couple.
Our sons had plenty of
room to roam on their seven
acres. Sharing their home
was truly a God-send.
At the time, the wife
worked about an hour from
home-and spent the week at
her mother's. The husband
worked nearby and lived in
the home we shared; on the
weekends we were all
together.
Amazingly, this arrange-
ment worked well for all of
us.
During the week, I
cooked for our family and
our new friend and we all
ate together. An amiable
relationship developdid On ...
the weekendss. his wife
cooked and'I learned new
things from her and enjoyed
dishes I'd never had before.
But, I also learned some
new terminology. Referring
to leftovers, they said,
"must-goes." In other
words, this food must go
before it spoiled.
Consequently, leftovers
were no longer dreaded
food to complain about.
Instead, since they "must
go," we had something to
start the next meal with.
This little detail came to
mind when I read about
Jesus feeding the 5,000.
Twelve baskets were left
over from five loaves and
two fish that a youngster
had given to Jesus. But, in
Jesus' hands, a feast had
been provided with plenty
left over.
A friend once made me
laugh when he asked, "Is
that where the term 'left-
overs' came from?" in refer-
ring to Jesus' miracle.
Leftovers were produced
from the willingness of a
child to share and Jesus say-
ing, "Bring them here to
me," as we see in Matthew
14:18, NIV.
Jesus didn't wave a magic
wand. Rather he looked up
to heaven and gave thanks.
Then he broke the loaves
and gave them to the disci-
ples to share with the peo-
ple: The bounty increased in
the giving. The people, now
satisfied, must have mar-
veled at the provision and
the, amount left over.
Jesus could have thanked
the child, dismissed him and
let him keep his lunch. Then
he could have created bread
from nothing for the rest of
the crowd. But, in receiving
the gift, he blessed the child
in the process. Then looking
to God the Father in prayer,
he multiplied it to meet the
need and then some.
So whenever we have
leftovers or "must-goes"
let's not complain, but be
reminded of the goodness of
the Lord and follow his
example to use the abun-
dance to bless. Selah
Jan Merop of Sebring is a
contributing writer for the

resources, it is important to
understand Florida's wetlands
and how important they are
to us.
So, you may ask, what
exactly is a wetland?
According to the University
of Florida, wetlands are
defined as "ecosystems typi-
cally found on the transition
between terrestrial and aquat-
ic systems. In order to be
classified as a wetland, an
area typically has at least one
of the following characteris-
tics:
1. a water table at or near
the ground's surface during
the growing season
2. poorly drained or hydric
soils
3. be home to a unique
diversity of wildlife and veg-
etation specifically adapted
to thrive in wet environ-
ments.


It is important to know that
wetlands assist society in
many ways. Some of the vital
ways they help us is by stor-
ing water, helping to prevent
flooding, stabilizing shore-
lines, protecting against ero-
sion and housing many vari-
eties of plants and animals.
Since much of our water
run-off travels to the wet-
lands, we, as conservation
minded citizens, must do all
we can to keep our ground-
water free of pollutants and
toxins.
Florida's wetlands are
made up primarily of swamps
and marshes. Swamps are
often thought of as wasted
land; a frightening, dark
place where no one dares to
roam.
Unfortunately, these
unfounded beliefs have led to
the destruction of many of
these valuable areas in the
past. The reality is that
swamps are very important to


our environ-
ment.
A swamp is
actually any
wetland that is
dominated by
woody plants.
Their soils are
generally satu-
rated with
water and much
of the year may
have standing
water. Many


News From

species of plants and wildlife
depend on these plant com-
munities to survive. Plants
that live in the swamp
include Bald Cypress, Water
Tupelo, Swamp Blackgum,
and mangroves.
Some of the critters that
we find in swamps include
river otters, frogs, salaman-
ders, egrets, Great Blue
Herons, Red-tailed Hawks,
wood ducks, dragonflies, tur-
tles and alligators. So we can
see that swamps house many


water.
In addition,


types of plants
and animals
that couldn't
live anywhere
else, but what
other functions
do they pro-
vide?
When flood-
ing conditions
exist, swamps
help to control
the overflow
by holding

they assist in


the filtration of water. As the
water flows through the.
swamp, the roots of the
plants trap many pollutants
and sediments which may
then sink and settle'to the
bottom of the swamp rather
than travel to their original
destination. As a result,
cleaner water is flowing out
of the swamps.
As it is with every ecosys-
tem, swamps are an impor-


tant part of the food chain;
plants in swamps process
nutrients which help to feed
wildlife down stream.
In contrast to swamps,
marshes are generally treeless
and open areas housing dif-
ferent varieties of grasses,
sedges and other soft-
stemmed vegetation.
Marshes, like swamps,
include varieties of plants
and wildlife that could not
exist elsewhere.
In addition, marshes
recharge groundwater sup-
plies and moderate stream-
flow by providing water to
streams.
This is an especially
important function during
periods of drought. In addi-
tion, marshes act as nature's
filter. As water passes over
the marsh, water flow is
slowed down, and suspended
particles settle to the bottom.
According to the U.S.
Environmental Protection


Agency, marshes are so good
at cleaning polluted waters
that they are now being repli-
cated to treat wastewater
from farms, parking lots and
small sewage plants.
These are just a few of the
benefits we receive from our
wetlands.
Hopefully, you understand
how vital these ecosystems
are to our water resources
and our survival.
You can do much to pro-
tect these precious water
sources. Conserve water
whenever you can. Make sure
to use environmentally
friendly products and recycle.
Take the time to learn about
the wetlands near you and get
involved in volunteer organi-
zations that work to protect
these areas.
You can make a difference.

AP Library's

Film Series to

honor Holiday
Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK During
June, the Avon Park Library
Film Series will honor the
late Judy Holiday and her
bright career. She died from
cancer in 1969.
The following films are
scheduled through June:
June 2 "Adam's Rib."
Directed by George Cukor in
1949, 100 minutes. While this
film is mainly a.vehicle for
Spencer Tracy and Kathryn
Hepburn, Judy Holiday's sup-
porting role is notable in
memory. She plays the wife
of a philandering husband.
She decides to shoot him dur-
ing his tryst. Not being a
good shot she merely wounds
the cad resulting in a trial for
her misdeed. Her testimony is
memorable. This film is not
rated.
June 9 "It Should Happen
to You.".Directed by George
Cukor in 1954, 87 minutes.
This light romantic comedy
displays Holiday's charming
gifts in the genre.
Unsuccessful as a model,
Gladys Clover (Holiday)
impoverishes herself to rent a
billboard overlooking
Columbus Circle in
Manhattan. The turn of
events is that others prize this
location, which leads her into
a vocation of renting bill-
boards. Also appearing is
Peter Lawford and Jack
Lemon. This film is not rated.
June 16 "The Solid Gold
Cadillac." Directed by
Richard Quine in 1956, 100
minutes. Taken from a stage
hit by George S. Kaufman
and Howard Teichmann,
Cadillac offers Holiday
another opportunity to reprise
the seemingly dumb but
canny blonde role that won
her an Oscar in 1951 for
"Born Yesterday." In this film
Sshe's a small stockholder who
Sdisco ersr shenanigans in the
corporation and fights it
while restoring her love inter-
est (Paul Douglas) to his lost
CEO position. It's classic and
perfect-Judy Holiday. This
film is not rated.
June 23 "Bells Are
Ringing." Directed by
Vincent Minnelli in 1960, 114
minutes. This is a light-heart-
ed, pleasant, little musical
from Broadway. It is included
to display Holiday's not
inconsiderable musical tal-
ents. She plays an answering
service operator who falls in
love with the "voice" of a
playboy subscriber (Dean
Martin). While the movie is
uneven, Fred Clark and Eddie
Foy provides enough comedy
to maintain one's interest.
This film is not rated.

NWF shows people how to garden for wildlife


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The National
Wildlife Federation announces that
the property of Sherry Trombley, in
Sebring, has been certified as an
official Certified Wildlife Habitat
site. This achievement contributes
to the organization's goal of certify-
ing 100,000 sites by the end of
2007.
The property now attracts a vari-
ety of birds, butterflies and other
wildlife while helping to protect the
local environment. With the help of
NWF, many habitat enthusiasts have
turned their yards and open spaces
into enticing wildlife refuges.
NWF began the Backyard
Wildlife Habitat program in 1973
and has since certified over 80,000
habitats nationwide. The majority of
these sites represent the hard work
and commitment of individuals and


families providing habitat near their
homes, but NWF has also certified
more than 2,700 schools and hun-
dreds of business and community
sites. Certified habitats can also be
found everywhere from post offices,
hospitals and places of worship to
community parks, corporate build-
ings and municipal facilities. The
average habitat is between one-third
and one-half acre, but certified sites
range from urban balconies to thou-
sand-acre areas.
Any habitat enthusiast can create
a backyard habitat and learn the
rewards of gardening for wildlife.
NWF teaches the importance of
environmental stewardship by pro-
viding guidelines for making land-
scapes more hospitable to wildlife.
To become certified, a property
must provide the four basic ele-
ments that all wildlife needs: food,


water, shelter and places to raise
young. In addition, the site must
employ sustainable gardening-prac-
tices. Habitat restoration is critical
in urban and suburban settings
where commercial and residential
development encroaches on natural
wildlife areas. In addition to provid-
ing for wildlife, certified habitats
conserve our natural resources by
reducing or eliminating the need for
fertilizers, pesticides or irrigation
water, which ultimately protects the
air, soil and water throughout our
communities. More information
about gardening for wildlife is
available at www.nwf.org/gardenfor
wildlife or by calling (800) 822-
9919.
Creating habitats not only helps
wildlife, it can help reduce global
warming pollution and save money
as well. Burning fossil fuels to heat


and cool our homes and maintain
our lawns releases carbon dioxide
into the atmosphere, which is the
main greenhouse gas responsible for
global warming.
Few people understand how just
one person can make a difference.
David Mizejewski, NWF naturalist
and host of Animal Planet's
"Backyard Habitat," says, "It's easy
to feel that there is no hope for
wildlife in our modern world of
smog, traffic and asphalt. But there
is hope. Each of us can make our
own piece of the Earth a healthy,
green space that helps restore the
ecological balance."
Encouraging your neighbors to
join with you can lead to a neigh-
borhood or community habitat that
provides wildlife with greater
incentive to call your piece of the
earth home.


NWF now offers the most com-
prehensive guide to date on garden-
ing for wildlife, authored by
Mizejewski. The 128-page
Attracting Birds, Butterflies and
Other Backyard Wildlife won the
Independent Publishers
Association's 2005 award for Best
Gardening/Agriculture Book of the
Year.
It is full of practical how-to-
information to make your yard a
wildlife haven and certify your
property as an official NWF
Certified Wildlife Habitat site. The
book, which costs $12.95, is avail-
able online at www.nwf.org/back
yardwildlifehabitat and can also be
ordered by calling (800) 900-2656.
The mission of the National
Wildlife Federation is to inspire
Americans to protect wildlife for
our children's future.

MOVIES/TELEVISION
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,
George Lucas has received enough compli-
ments to last several lifetimes. "Star Wars"
shattered box office records, trailblazed new
special effects techniques and revitalized the
science-fiction genre. With that kind of suc-
cess, who could blame Hollywood studios for
trying to ride its coattails?
You can see the impact it had on films as
early as 1979, which saw the release of sci-fi

like C6onell ULii'ertit) and
Swarthmore. I returned to
New York where I drove my
roommates wild by constantly
playing the soundtrack. I'm
sure there was not-so-silent
rejoicing the day I left the
vinyl record in the sun, and it
warped. A week's worth of
cash from a part-time job
bought a new copy. Even
now, when I hear the 20th
Century Fox fanfare, I expect
the John Williams score to
follow.
Thirty years later, "Star


films "The Black Hole," "Star Trek: The
Motion Picture" and "Alien." And the
movie's influence is evident in the 1999 hit
"The Matrix": Neo's quest to wipe out the
Matrix parallels Luke Skywalker's crusade to
destroy the Galactic Empire. In the world of
television, "Star Wars" inspired "Buck
Rogers in the 25th Century" (1979) and
"Battlestar Galactica" (1978). (Lucas actually
sued the producers of "Galactica" for pla-
garism.)
"Star Wars" also helped change the tone of
movies. Much of '70s cinema such as
"The Godfather" (1972) and "Taxi Driver"
(1976) reflected the bleakness of the
times: the energy crisis, the Vietnam War and
Watergate. "Star Wars," with its simple story-
line, proved there was an audience for an old-
fashioned adventure.

ductivity, innovation or international trade

Seventh-inning stumble stuns Streaks


* Picture page, 6D
By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne @newssun.com
SARASOTA It was a pictur-
esque evening near the coast, with
sunny skies kept cool by a steady
wind off the Gulf.
But the pleasantness of the day at
Ed Smith Stadium turned figurative-
ly dark for the Sebring Blue Streaks
and their several hundred inspired
fans, as the Pine Forest Eagles
swooped down.with their talons and
snatched victory from the jaws of
defeat.
A seven-run, top-of-the-seventh-
inning rally erased a 7-5 deficit and
moved the visitors from Pensacola to
a Saturday meeting with Bishop
Moore for the Class 4A State
Championship with a 12-7 win.
"They just kept hitting the ball,"
head coach Hoppy Rewis said of that
nightmarish seventh inning. "If we
got a fastball up, they hit it really,
hard. If we made a good pitch, they
fouled it off. They hit the ball well
and that's the name of the game."
Sebring started off hitting the ball
well, also, following their script
from their regional win over Tampa
Jesuit by breaking out on top from
the get-go.
After starter Chaz Abeln worked a
scoreless top of the first, J.T.
Tomlinson got things started with a
lead-off single.
On the very next pitch, Nick
Maloyed blasted a shot off the left
field wall for an RBI double, and
just like that the Streaks were off
and running.
The running theme continued as
Maloyed advanced to third on an
errant pick-off attempt and scam-
pered across the plate on a wild pitch
for a 2-0 Sebring lead.
Pine Forest quickly showed, how-
ever, that they would be persistent -
an early forewarning of things to
come.
Starting pitcher Justin Oehrle sin-
gled up the middle to start the sec-
ond and moved to second when Troy


News-Sun photos by SCOTT DRESSEL
Pensacola Pine Forest's Chris Ratliff slides behind Sebring catcher J.C. Shoop to score the first of the Eagles seven runs in the top of the seventh
inning of Friday's state semifinal game in Sarasota. By the time the rally was over, most of the Streaks couldn't bear to watch (top photo).


Haley's hot shot to second couldn't
be handled.
Josh Branstetter moved the run-
ners to second and third with a sacri-
fice bunt, with C.J. Dancy then trim-
ming the lead with an RBI single to
left.
The score became tied at 2-2 when
Robbie Jernigan hit a sacrifice fly to
center, and the Eagles moved in
front on Justin Fradejas' single up
the middle.
The Blue Streak bats cooled
through the fourth inning as 6-foot-3
left-hander Oehrle racked up eight


strikeouts.
Pine Forest upped its lead to 4-2
on a Fradejas single to right that
scored Dancy in the fourth, and
made it a three-run cushion on a
Chris Ratliff home run in the fifth.
The blue skies were looking gray
for the Blue Streaks, but not for
long.
Things started out innocently
enough in the bottom of the fifth,
with Tomlinson singling to center to
lead things off.
Tomlinson was then forced at sec-
ond on Maloyed's fielder's choice


and-when Abeln flied out to right for
the second out, the inning might
have seemed lost.
But the Sebring stands, support-
ively raucous anr wild all evening,
surged with excitement as the
Streaks followed another familiar,
season-long pattern two-out ral-
lies.
"We've scored a ton of runs this
year with two out," Rewis said. "The
kids just do a great job of rallying
with two out.'?
That was evident as Charlie Peck
and Cody Higgins drew consecutive


walks to load the bases.
With Tony Vazquez at bat, a
passed ball brought Maloyed in and,
after fouling off a few pitches to
keep his at-bat alive, Vazquez sent
one down the left-field line for a
two-run double.
J.C. Shoop went the other way,
lacing a double down the right-field
line to score another.
Colt Williams then sent a bouncer
between short and third that got
through for, a hit, bringing Shoop

Dixie Youth Majors Baseball


Lions outlast Elks


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne @ newssun.com
SEBRING --In the Dixie
Youth Majors (ages 11-12)
City Tournament opener at
the Max Long Activities
Complex Saturday morning,
the Lions held off a Sebring
Elks rally to take a 10-8 vic-
tory and move into the win-
ner's bracket.
It was a slugfest from the
onset, as both teams broke out
of the box with three-run
firsts.
Things stayed even as each
team crossed the plate once in
the second, but the Elks
edged out to a lead when Tori


Pringle walked in the third for
the Elks and proceeded to
swipe second and third base
before scoring on Ryan
Davidson's hit.
But the Lions bounced
right back with three in their
half of the third two coming
on an Austin Cordell base-hit,
making it a 7-5 game.
After a scoreless fourth for
the Elks, the Lions added to
the lead with a series of walks
and wild pitches scoring
Colin Walkup and a base hit
from Gus Garcia scoring
Jonathan Hollenberg for a 9-5

LESSON


10 YEARS AGO
May 20, 1997: Avon Park Feed used an eight-run first inning to back the pitching of Will Jackson for
a 10-0 win over Sebring K-Mart in Dixie Boys (age 13-14) action. Jackson struck out 15 and Keith
Haywood and Robert McRae had three hits each for the victors.
35 YEARS AGO
May 20, 1972: Senior quarterback Charlie Lanier lead the way in the White team's 40-26 win over
the Blue team in the annual Sebring Blue-White spring scrimmage. Tied 26-26 going into the fourth
quarter, Lanier connected with Jimmy Olds on a touchdown pass to put the White team up for good.

Truths to be told but I don't


want to hear any more about it


Sunday, May 20, 2007 3D


Double coverage


By writing this, I'm kind
of feeding into my own
annoyance.
Every time I see a (sports)
news report on Barry Bonds,
or read about his latest at-bat
in pursuit of Hank Aaron's
home run record, I wonder to
myself is the hype of this
really something the general
baseball fan is really into, or
is it just the media trying to
amp us up about it?
There is enough anti-
Bonds sentiment out there,
that I get the sense that the
excess coverage is somewhat
forced.
And since, outside the
scope of sports, the general
populace has little interest or
knowledge of Bonds, maybe
if the media would stop trying
to shove it down our collec-
tive throats, maybe it would
just quietly go by and I
wouldn't have to be reminded
about this tragic time for
baseball as Bonds, not half
the man Aaron is, seeks to
taint the most hallowed record
in American sport.
Then, of course, I have to
go and write a column about
it so I now become part of
my own problem.
My reasoning, however, is
to clear up the misinforma-
tion that I see somehow per-
sisting in the whole debate of
Bonds' alleged cheating.
I read a letter to the editor
in the USA Today earlier last
week which suggested that
even if Bonds had used
steroids in the late 90s, it
wasn't really cheating,
because it wasn't against the.
rules in baseball at the time.
On the contrary, steroids,
have been on baseball's list
of banned/illegal drugs since
the early 90s.
But, as ridiculous as it
sounds, as part of the
Collective Bargainihg
Agreement, the players union
would not allow testing for it.
This was a main point dur-
ing the strike of '94 and, not
wanting it to drag out any
longer than it already had,
Commissioner Bud Selig let.
it stay that way, for the time
being, in return for the play-
ers unions concessions on
some of the other issues.
With baseball on tenuous
ground over the next few
years after the strike, base-
ball then turned a blind-eye
at the surge in home runs by
the suddenly surging muscu-
lature of its players because
of the ensuing surge in atten-
dance and money.
Plenty of stupidity and
mistakes to go around for the

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne
steroid era to get so out of
control but whoever took
steroids in the 90s was, in
fact, cheating, they just had
no way of getting caught.
Another bit of misinforma-
tion that 'alleged' steroid
using ballplayers want to
keep feeding us is that the
use of steroids doesn't really
help all that much as New
York Yankee Jason Giambi
recently suggested.
I use alleged with Giambi,
even though he has confessed
to having used, only because
he's never actually said what
it is he is confessing to using
so anything he says should
be taken with a bit of skepti-
cism anyway... .
But he did say that taking
steroids doesn't help with the
act of hitting a baseball with
a bat,.it doesn't enhance ones
ability to do so therefore,
by his logic, I guess he's say-
ing they don't do anything.
Which,then begs the ques-
tion, why do them and why
be so secretive about using
something that doesn't appar-
ently do anything.
Obviously because they do
have a .great benefit for hit-
ting a baseball.
He's right in the fact that
hitting a baseball is a skill, a
talent, an ability that some
have more of than others.
If a player has reached any
-level o6f professional t s-,,.
ball, he-has that ability more-
so than most others and if
he's in the major leagues, he
has a very, very good ability
to hit a baseball.
That already being, a skill
he has, now he wants to be
able to hit it harder and far-
ther.
And to be able to hit it
harder and farther more
often.


What steroids and other
drugs like them do is enhance
one's ability to get stronger
by helping rebuild muscle tis-
sues more quickly after a
workout breaks them down.
Less recovery time, more
stamina means you can work
out more often.
That increased strength
and stamina helps during a
long and draining baseball
season and at the end of the
season, when the 'clean'
players might be a little worn
down, dragging a bit, the
steroid user is much closer to
his peak performance levels.
Some also suggest that
there were certainly pitchers
using steroids during the
S'steroid era' which would
then even things out.
That pitchers were also
using, I am sure. How much
it would even things out, I'm
not so sure.
Granted, my knowledge of
the intricacies of how
steroids affect ligaments and
tendons is scant, but I think I
remember that they have an
adverse effect on them at
least in the long run.
With problems pitchers
have with ligaments and ten-
dons in their arms anyway,
I'm not too sure how steroids
would help.
But let's say they do give
the pitcher the ability to
increase their strength and
stamina thus allowing them
to throw harder more frequent-
ly and for longer duration's.
One of the common adages
in baseball is that, no matter
how hard a pitcher throws, if
he keeps throwing that hard,
consistently, major league
hitters will catch up to him.
They will get the timing
down soon enough and a 95
mile-per-hour fastball, seen
for the seventh time, doesn't
seem .quite so difficult to hit.
So, basically, for thowe te\,
of uGs wo notice when talk
of Bonds comes up, there's
my two-cents worth if he
did use steroids, he was in
breach of the rules of base-
ball. And if he did use
steroids, they certainly
enhanced his performance.

If an Elk cquld roar, how-
ever these Elks did, in roaring'
back with a three-run fifth.
Kyle Cunningham singled
with one out and stole second
base before Pringle ripped a
hit to right that eluded the
Lions right-fielder, for a run-
scoring triple.


Jordan Baker followed that
with an extra-base hit of his
own, bringing Prirgle in with
Baker soon scoring on a
Davidson ground-out.
With the lead just a skinny
little run, the Lions were
looking for some insurance
and got it from Colin Walkup,
who did little walking in the
bottom of the fifth.
With one out, Walkup sin-
gled before stealing second,
then third, then scampering


home when the throw got
away, making it a two-run
margin.
From there, Brad Doty fin-
ished up by retiring the side in
order in the sixth to secure the
win.
"They really made it tight,"
Lions coach Fred Walkup
said. "It really helped to' get
that insurance run, and now
we get into the winner's
bracket."

Blue Streak Nick Maloyed (above) slides home safely, making it from third on a wild pitch, to score Sebring's second run in
the first inning. Colt Williams (below) sends this pitch through the left side of die infield, batting in J.C. Shoop to cap off a
five-run fifth in Friday's 12-7 loss to Pine Forest in the Class 4A state semifinal game in Sarasota.

STREAKS
Continued from 1D
around to score.
When the dust had settled,
a five-spot was up on the
board for the Sebring fifth,
and a 7-5 lead in the game.
The Eagles looked like they
might put together a two-out
rally of their own in the sixth
when Fradejas doubled to
right-center after two routine
ground outs.
Charles McClain then sent
a hard one-hopper headed
toward left-center, but
Williams made a diving snare
of the ball, bounced up and
fired to first where Vazquez
made a diving snare of his
own to record the out.
But Pine Forest wouldn't
bother waiting for outs in the
seventh to start its game-win-
ning rally. The Eagles tied the


game before the first out was
recorded, took d two-run lead
before the second out was
made and poured it on with
three more runs before the
inning mercifully ended.
"It was a long week and
getting here, it takes a lot out
of you," Rewis said. "They
(Pine Forest) were in the
same situation. They got their
hits and shut us down when
they needed to. They just han-
dled it a little bit better than
we did."
And so the season ended
with just the fifth Sebring loss
of the season against 26 wins.
And while being just three
outs away may be looked at
with some angst for now, it
will soon enough be seen for
the remarkable achievement
that it was: a long-awaited
return to the state's elite for
Sebring baseball by the '07
Blue Streaks.


CLARKE
Continued from 1D
ball out in a situational relief
appearance in the eighth
inning of the Rockies' 5-2
loss to the Kansas City
Royals.
"What a week," said SFCC
head coach Rick Hitt. "It's a
very special thing, there's no
other way to say it. They're
Stwo special guys and they get
to pitch on the biggest stage
there is.
"We're really excited for
Darren. He's been up and
down on the disabled list and
had Tommy John surgery in
'04, so for him to get his shot,
he's got to be ecstatic."
Hitt and his wife will fly


out this morning to see Litsch
make his second start at
Philadelphia (1:35 p.m.), and
.said Litsch is fired up about
getting another chance to
pitch, but not quite as much
as he is about getting a chance
to hit, since the interleague
game is in a National League
park.
"He told me he's been hit-
ting some bombs in batting
practice," Hitt said, adding
that Litsch also said he had to
go through some rookie haz-
ing on the flight to
Philadelphia, getting pressed
into service as the beer and
nuts fetcher for the veterans.
"He said he doesn't even
drink beer and can't even
stand the smell of it," Hitt
said.

(Clockwise from top left) Sebring's J.T. Tomlinson dives into
second base as Pine Forest second baseman Justin Fradejas
reaches for a wide throw. Sebring fans react during the Blue
Streaks' five-run rally in the fifth inning. Cory Watt cele-
brates after scoring a run for Sebring. A young Blue Streak
fan tries to root on her team. as some Sebring High School
students do the same thing during the late stages of the
game. More photos in the ww'w.newssun.com photo gallery.
