Immigration

measure is

'disastrous'

District 16 rep will
oppose the Senate's
planned compromise
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Illegal immi-
grants and what to do about
them has been the hot topic in
Highlands County since the
Illegal Immigrant Relief Act
made headlines in Avon Park
last summer.
Now a group of senators in
Washington has introduced a
compromise measure they
have been trying to push
through Congress and citi-
zens across the country have
been up in arms about it.
District 16 Congressman
Tim Mahoney, who repre-
sents Highlands County, is
one of those who is not happy
with the
measure and
is letting his
displeasure be
shown with
words such as
"disastrous,"
"horrible" and
". Mahoney "half-baked"
to describe
the announced compromise
SMahoney. said there is
plenty of criticism to go
around starting at the
White House.
"First of all, let's call it
what it is this is the presi-
dent's plan. That's the first
thing you have to under-
stand," he said.
Instead of being a work-
able plan, Mahoney said what
he has seen to date has .been
more of an "appeasement
measure" that has resulted in
a process that would make
grove owners and business-
men responsible for the job
that should be accomplished
by U.S. Border Patrol and
Immigration and Customs
Enforcement agents.
"This is something that is
ill-conceived and will not
work. This is what happens
when you have a bunch of
politicians who are trying to
figure out how to pass a bill

Proposed


convention


center clears


budget hurdle

Facility slated to be built

at County Fairgrounds
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING It appears the fourth time
was the charm for the Highlands County
Fair Association's proposed agricultural
civic center.
The issue was pushed through by District
77 Representative Denise Grimsley, howev-
er, it has been on the radar screen for better
than six years when it first was introduced
by her predecessor, Joe Spratt, as the
Highlands County Fair Expo & Community
Center.
Other legislators who have attempted
to shepherd the project, through the
Legislature include District 76 Florida
Representative Baxter Troutman, current
District 17 State Senator J.D. Alexander and
former State Senator John Laurent;
The $2 million was included in the "local
projects" section under the agriculture com-
mission's division of marketing, where such
things as agricultural fairs
are located.
"Because it's.located on
the fairgrounds, they proba-
bly are going to utilize it for
agricultural function."
explained Commissioner of
Agriculture Charles
Bronson's press officer Liz rimsley
Compton.
Early descriptions of the project depicted
it as a 38,000-square-foot building that
would "enhance the ability of local ioutoh to
showcase and exhibit their agricultural tal-
ents and to provide a venue to market agri-
cultural activities."
When asked if that still is the case,
Highlands County Fair manager Artie
McIntyre said there is no planned square
footage for this building, referring all ques-
tions to a press conference tentatively
scheduled for next week.
Reports earlier this year projected the
seating capacity for the building at 3,000,
which would make it the largest such facili-
ty in the county. Right now the building that
can hold the most people is the auditorium
at South Florida Community College with a
capacity of 1,445.
Other meeting facilities include the
Restoration Church of the Highlands on
Sparta Road, which can seat just short of
1,000, utilizing both permanent and tempo-
rary chairs, and the Quality Inn Conference

Heartland Workforce gives workers a chance to get paid to improve


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING David Mason and Don
McDonough, business relations repre-
sentatives at the Heartland Workforce,
are ready and eager to help employers in
Highlands County.
Their colleague Jerry Heausler is
equally excited about serving Hardee and
Desoto counties.
All three want to help businesses take
advantage of employed worker opportu-
nities.
Donna Doubleday works with them.
She is the program monitor, and an
instructor, for the Heartland Workforce.
The long-range goals, Doubleday said,
are to increase a worker's worth through
training, and create an educated, moti-

available for employees
who are already working.'

vated workforce that can compete in the
global market, attracting more business
to the area.
To reach those goals, state money and
grants are available to off-set the costs of
workshops or training programs.
"Training dollars are available for
employees who are already working,"
Mason said, "especially if the training is
in response to a business' expansion, or


training on new equipment.
"From our end of it, we love to see
business creating new positions or
upgrading."
Generally speaking, employers may be
eligible for one-on-one dollars, up to 50
percent of the training costs, to a cap of
$5,000 for each individual trained.
Some of the expenses that may be
reimbursed are an instructor's salary,
textbooks and manuals, tuitions and fees.
The training may be provided by
South Florida Community College, the
school district, vocational education cen-
ters, state universities, licensed and certi-
fied private institutions, or by recognized
in-house employer trainers. A recognized

Council approves $100,000 insurance policy for Harder Hall


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING The Sebring
City Council has approved a
new $101,155 insurance poli-
cy for Harder Hall.
The new policy from
Landmark Insurance was
approved during an emer-
gency council meeting
Tuesday. It will require a
$50,577 down payment and
monthly payments of
$6,591.94.
The new insurance was
needed after the old policy,
which cost around $5,000 a


month, couldn't be renewed
because the building was
vacant. The now-expired poli-
cy had a work-in-progress
provision that couldn't be met
because the building is cur-
rently empty.
The new insurance policy
features $7.2 million for the
property itself, along with an
additional $1 million in cov-
erage for contents inside. If
the property is bought at the
July 18 auction, the city could
then cancel the policy and
have the premium refunded
(although they would lose the


down payment).
"It's very difficult to obtain
insurance on any property, but
especially a vacant building in
bankruptcy," Chapter 11
Trustee Kenneth Welt said.
The council approved the
insurance expenditure by a 2-
to-1 vote, with Council
President John Griffin and
Bud Whitlock voting yes, and
Scott Stanley voting no
(council members Margie
Rhoades and Jeff Carlson
were not present at the meet-
ing). The expenditure will
come from the city's general


'We've had a great time'

We've .had a greattime through the years,' Charlie Stidham said Wednesday morning,
while standing next to his wife Dee Dee in front of a crowd of about 25 people at Stuart
Park in Lake Placid. The Lake Placid Merchant's Association planted a tree and a
plaque in honor of the Stidham family for their 'many years of service and friendship.'
The Stidham's bought Lake Placid's oldest drug store from Dee Dee's father, Lee
Crews, sometime in the mid-1960s. Crews had first opened the store in August 1925.
The Stidhams recently retired and sold the family business, though Charlie still helps
out and works on a volunteer basis.

Committee was appointed
almost two years ago, it was
given the task of coming up
with a plan to manage growth

heated discussions on all
aspects of the proposal.

fund and will be repaid upon
sale of the property.
Stanley wanted to look into
not buying insurance for the
property at all, since insur-
ance would only be needed
for two months assuming the
property is sold in July.
"The building's been there
since the 1920s and it's still
standing," Stanley said,
adding that instead of spend-
ing more than $50,000 for a
down payment, the city could
instead use that money to put
increased security on the
premises.
Griffin responded to
Stanley's concerns by saying
that lightning could strike the
building at any time and that
Stanley was "hedging his
bets." Welt added that it could
be harder to sell the building
if it wasn't insured.
Stanley also suggested that
the city drop the wind cover-
age .for the policy, because of
its large five percent
deductible. Because the city
would have to pay hundreds


of thousands of dollars to
meet the wind deductible
before getting insurance
money, Stanley argued, it
would be better to drop wind
coverage altogether if sub-
stantial savings were possible.
The council did not act on his
request.
Welt said that if the city
declined to pay for the insur-
ance, he could be forced to
seek financing for it else-
where because his job is to
represent all the creditors and
not just the city. Welt said he
could probably find financing
for the insurance at a bank or
similar institution, and if he
did, the financier would then
be moved ahead of the city in
the bankruptcy repayment
process.
Bankruptcy Judge Laurel
Isicoff has already approved
an agreement between the city
and Welt for financing of the
old insurance policy (which
cost $60,000 a year). Isicoff
would have to amend the old
order, but that shouldn't be an
issue, Welt said.


Huie named to Sebring's

BARTOW The Office of
Public Defender for the Tenth
Judicial Circuit announced -
the hiring of Attorney
Douglas T. Huie. He joined
the Sebring office on May 7.
Huie received his juris doc-
torate from the Thomas M.

Mich. Prior to joining the
Tenth Circuit Public
Defender's Office as an assis-
tant public defender, Huie
worked for the Volusia HIE

second is "on the drawing
board," Harris said.
A $2-a-month surcharge on
the utility bills of town resi-
dents was also discussed. The
money from the fee would be
used to put power lines under-
ground. In an informal show
of hands asked for by Harris,
the majority of town residents
,in attendance ,supported the
fee.
The committee will make a
presentation to the Lake


Placid Town Council Tuesday
at 5:30 p.m. regarding public
input at Tuesday's meeting.
The committee will then make
its presentation to the
Highlands County Board of
County Commissioners June
12.
The entire text of the
Growth Management Report
is available for download
online at the town's Web site,
www.lakeplacidfl.net, in the
"Bulletin Board" section.


Welt updated the city on
progress in selling the historic
hotel, and he thinks Harder
Hall will be sold for enough
to fully pay creditors back
what they're owed.
"We're still optimistic
we're going to sell the build-
ing," Welt said, adding that
advertisements for the proper-
ty in the Wall Street Journal,
Miami Herald, and online will
be placed over the next few
weeks.

Elizabeth Gonzalez (from left) and Skylar Epps from Kathleen Kubsch's class have a
friendly water balloon fight Monday at Lake Placid Elementary School's Kindergarten
Splash Day. Some students ran around and threw water balloons at each other, while
others were busy jumping in and out of the kiddy pools provided by Wal-Mart, Lowe's
and Home Depot. LPE has been putting on Kindergarten Splash Day for over a decade,
kindergarten teacher Jennifer Simmons said of the end-of-the-year celebration.

MAHONEY
Continued from 1A
rather than how to solve a
problem," he said.
The first term congressman
said what he wants to see first
is the borders secured and.
illegal aliens stopped from
coming into the country.
"For the past 40 -years
amnesty hls been the official
policy of this country that
involves every administration
going back to Lyndon
Johnson," he said.
Mahoney said the econom-
ic impact of the problem is
landing directly on localities.
"Our sheriff's offices here
in Florida are spending a for-
tune in taxpayers money run-
ning immigration offices," he
said.
The way the bill is written,
Mahoney described it as a tax
on businesses and grove own-
ers who, he said, would be
required to check citizenship
status. That, he said, should
begin at the border.
"You should expect to walk
down the street and see some-
body and expect that they are
in the country legally just
like you should be able to get
a $10 bill and expect it not to
be counterfeit," he said.
Mahoney said to this point,
a bill has yet to be written,
describing what he has seen
as "talking points of what's
been negotiated."
Meanwhile, just like every
other congressman and sena-
tor in Washington, his phones-
have been ringing off the
hook and the message has
been the same.
"The majority of people in
the district want tougher bor-
der security but they recog-
nize the only way to deal with
it is through some kind of
guest worker program," he
said. "There is a vocal minor-

ity that is upset and angry.
They want to round these peo-
ple up, take them home and
make them pay the costs -
but that's a minority."
He said the concern is that
there not sufficient law
enforcement personnel to per-
form such a task, estimating it
would take an additional
'0,000 officers to do the job
that in turn would result in an
unacceptable tax burden.
Mahoney predicted the
measure would not pass.
Between the provisions of
fines and sending people back
to their country of origin, the
congressman said the pro-
gram would not encourage
illegals to "come out of the


shadows." In the interim, he
suggested that current poli-
cies have resulted in not
enough people to harvest the
country's produce.
Mahoney pointed to
Colorado as an example, say-
ing their efforts to have pris-
oners pick the crops are "a
disaster."
Meanwhile, he and other
members of ft'e house await
to see -. hti'. the iinal bill will
look like. He predicted it
wouldn't be pretty.
"I talked with one senator
and he said he'd never seen
everybody so against one
thing in their entire lives as
this immigration thing," he
said.

All three campaigns focus on saving lives,
preventing injuries, and reducing property

During last year's Memorial Day holiday

those killed in vehicles normally equipped
with seat belts were not wearing seat belts.

Continued from 1A
credential has to be the result.
In exchange, employers commit to retaining
those employees who complete the training, as
well as providing a commensurate raise.
The pots of money come from different
sources, Mason said, and eligibility require-
ments vary, so the process can be confusing.
That is why he, McDonough and Heausler are
ready to act as guides and help with the paper-
work.
The Heartland Workforce also provides pro-
filers who can visit a company to identify what
skills an employer needs and what skills each
employee has.


The Heartland Workforce mobile One-Stop
Career Center provides all the services of its
main center. Individuals can search for
employment opportunities, get assistance writ-
ing resumes, and access online job applica-
tions, among other options. Thursday after-
noon' the mobile unit was at Walgreens in
south Sebring, processing applicants for the
chain's new store in Lake Placid.
Look for the mobile unit at the Avon Park
Community Center the second Thursday of
every month and at the Lake Placid Chamber
of Commerce the last Thursday of every
month.
For more information call 385-3672.
Mason's extension is 232; McDonough's is
252. The Heartland Workforce is at 2730 U.S.
27 N. in Sebring.

CENTER
Continued from 1A
Center where about 350 may
gather.
The largest county-owned
and operated meeting facility
is. the Highlands County
Agri-Civic Center. Highlands
County Facilities Manager
David Flowers said
that measures out at 5,300
square feet and can hold as
many as 762 people set up
theater-style.,
When first introduced in
the year 2000, the proposed
fairgrounds agricultural con-,
vention center was promoted
as a shelter "for the South
Central Florida
area." Advocates pointed out
that due to the fact it was
located at the fairgrounds
there would be ample space
for animals, although that
may no longer be the plan.
The initial grant applica-
tion set the total cost at
$200,000 but that has
changed as the years have
gone by. Estimates in 2003
put construction at
$2,323,000. That ballooned
to $3.7 million in 2005 and
now has jumped to more than
$4 million, of which $2 mil-
lion of that is slated to come
from Bronson's budget. An
additional $2.6 million is
scheduled to come from other
sources.
Highlands County
Administrator Carl Cool said
the county has pledged
$75,000 for engineering,
design. and permitting plus
another $175,000 under the
county's Road and Bridge
Department for site modifica-
tions such as the construction
of a parking lot and site mod-
ification.
Other money might include
such things as the value of the
land, in-kind services and
perhaps even some money
from the Highlands County
Fair Board itself.
While the $2 million allo-
cation for the proposed
Highlands County
Fairgrounds Agricultural
Convention Center made the
cut in the Florida Department
of Agriculture budget, other
area projects were not so for-
tunate.
A million dollars slated for
the Lake Wales Recreation
and Cultural Complex fell
victim to the veto pen of
Florida Governor Charlie
Crist as did a million dollar
allocation proposed for the
Arcadia Rodeo Complex and
a $750,000 grant for the
Cattlemen's Arena at the
Hardee County Fairgrounds.

Event at Depot Museum leaves participants in stitches


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Quilting enthu-
siasts from throughout Highlands
County flooded into The Depot
Museum Sunday afternoon for a
"Quilting Bee" facilitated by
Roberta Flowers and hosted by the
Avon Park Historical Society.
"This was our second annual
presentation in a program called
Special Summer Sunday Speaker
Series," Avon Park Historical
Society president Larry Levy said.
"The program is designed to intro-
duce local history to local children."
Flowers, the society's recording
secretary and chairperson of the
society's education committee, had
never before given a quilting demon-
stration, and certainly didn't ask for
the honor.
"I don't know if Larry told you
how I ended up doing this," Flowers
said Sunday, "but I didn't ask to do
it. He called me one day and I was
across the room cutting fabric. When
I answered the phone I was out of
breath.
"He asked me why and I told him,
and he said, 'Oh, they do quilting
nowadays?' I said, 'Why sure,' and
that's how I wound up doing this."
"I only expected two or three
people to show up, but this was the
biggestand liveliest crowd ever,-
and all but two of them (husbands
who came with their wives), are
. \.' ien. -

Maggie Divis (left) and Dorothy Bishopric hold tip a quilt with a military
theme during a quilting presentation by Roberta Flowers at the Avon
Park Depot Museum Sunday afternoon. The quilt was created by
Flowers, who brought at least a half dozen others.


"It just goes to show you what
men know about quilting," Levy
laughed.
Though she is a self-proclaimed
quilting amateur, Flowers has been
sewing since 1954.
"I went to buy my daughter an
Easter dress and it was $6," Flowers
said of her initial sewing experience,
".JId b.ick thenii ih.t 1'.v ; t hi of


money! I told my husband if he
would buy me a sewinig machine I'd
sew all the clothes; and I've been
sewing ever since."
A lifelong arts and crafts person,
FloWers learned how to do embroi-
dery around the age of 11. In 1997
when she first decided to learn how
to quilt, she was well prepared to
inmi, ei [ le art


"I pretty much taught myself to
quilt," she said. "I took three classes,
but you can't learn much in three
lessons."
To date, she has made somewhere
in the neighborhood of 16 quilts, as
well as several other quilted items.
During the presentation, Flowers
demonstrated a variety of quilting
styles including crazy quilts, stack
and whacks, card tricks, and story
quilts.
Of all presented, perhaps the most
impressive were those known as,
"Life Quilts."
A Life Quilt is made using photo-
graphs that are transferred onto fab-
Sric and sewn into a quilt. Looking at
a Life Quilt is like thumbing through
a photo album or a scrapbook and
remembering various events, people
and stages of life.
Other sentimental items can also
be added, such as special
badges/patches earned, and even
words.
The majority, if not all, of those in
attendance were quilters. Several
brought to the table suggestions,
asked questions, or shared stories of
their own experiences or, knowledge
of the history of quilting, leaving lit-
tle doubt that each and every one of
them gained something to add to
their repertoire of knowledge.
For those who had never heard of
a Quilting Bee, Flowers explained,
"Back in the old days a whole lot of
\.ii'ien; 'ot together away from

ferent quilting styles and tech-
niques at the Avon Park Depot
Museum Sunday afternoon.


their husbands and children and sat
around quilting and gossiped."
Sunday's Quilting Bee didn't
include gossip, however, because all
of the 'buzz' was about quilting.
Due, at least in part, to having had
back surgery and limitations that fol-
lowed, Flowers has found easier
ways to achieve many of the tasks
involved in producing a quilt.
"Short-cuts is my middle name,"
she laughed, as she showed several
modern day gadgets and told of
ways to simplify the process.
These included everything from
stencils, to ergonomic scissors, to
miniature irons, to templates, to air-
line approved cutters, a magnetic
wand to use for picking up dropped
pins without ever bending over, and
more.
With today's technology practi-
cally anyone with the desire to make
a quilt could do so.
"You are only limited in what you
think you can do. If you can think it,
you can find a way to do it," Flowers
said..

Playing with fire is



nothing but stupid


Outrage and
revulsion do not
even begin to
describe the way I
feel about some of
the actions of my
generation. I
thought I had seen
it all until I
recently saw
online several
videos of teens
setting themselves
on fire. Just the


On My
Mind
Georgia Dawkins


thought of anyone
setting themselves on fire I
find extremely difficult to
fathom.
In these videos I saw peo-
ple poring gasoline on their
bodies or other flammable
liquids and putting a flame to
the same area. Surprisingly,
theses teens seemed to be
enjoying this form of recre-
ation. In many cases there
were others standing around
laughing and entertaining
their stupidity.
In one of the videos a boy
had his friend poor gasoline
on his back and then his
friend put the lighter to his
back while watching his back
burn. The two then took'a
towel and wiped the flames
away. Afterwards, they cap-
tured an unforgettable pic-
tured of his back. His skin
looked much like a melted
candle.
I* can.honestly say that I
have never seen anything so
ludicrous in my life. I have


known people who
ate glue, chewed on
erasers, and some
people who cut
themselves just so
they could feel
something in life. I
have known people
to do some pretty
dim-witted things,
but this by far is the
worst thing next to
suicide.
In another
extremely disturbing


video, there were two little
boys who looked about 13 or
younger. The two boys tried
to wrap one of their arms so
that it would look almost like
a fake arm. It looked like
they were trying to protect
the arm so that only it would
burn. That arm was also the
only place that the flammable
liquid was poured but when
the fire was set to the arm it
became out of control.
The flames continued to
burn his body; one of the
boys started yelling a few
profane words and he told
the other to call 911. The lit-
tle boys lost control and the
camera went off. I can only
imagine what happened after
that but I know that whatever
the result of that was, it was
not a pretty site. I wonder
where their parents were and
how the two boys were able
to access all of these materi-

Tarp sales were all up
front and legal
Editor:
Back a few months ago
there was an article in the
paper by Preston Colby
accusing the county landfill
and Steve's Cargo Express of
sales tax evasion, kick backs
and illegally selling tarps.
After an investigation by
Detective Anthony McGann
of the Highlands County
Sheriff's Department and the
Florida Department of
Revenue Investigator, we
were found innocent of any
wrong-doing.
The truth: About two years
ago, the landfill contacted us
and asked if we would put
tarps for sale in the scale
house. Their motive was to
give people that came with
an open load (violating the
county cover law) the choice
of, 1. A fine, 2. Leaving and
coming back with the load
covered, 3. Purchasing a tarp.
This was approved by the
county lawyer and everything
from the beginning was up
front and legal. They did not
ask for anything in return.
This was to be purely a serv-
ice to the public.
We provided a cash box to
make change, so that we
were not mingling our money
with county money, and a
receipt book. No one was
under any pressure to pur-
chase a tarp. The tarp prices
at the landfill were exactly
the same pride as they have
always been at our store. We
were told that they could not
collect sales tax for us so, we
built the sales tax into the
price and then separated it
out when we picked up our
receipts. On the 20th of every
month when we paid our
sales tax to the Florida
Department of Revenue that
tax was included. Wouldn't it
be stupid of us to jeopardize
our sales tax,license and our
reputation over $171 of col-
lected tax?
Wouldn't it be great if Mr.
Colby would use his genius
to get behind some great
cause instead of stirring up
trouble for county officials
and businesses providing a
service? Is it any wonder that
people gnd businesses with
which had good intentions
now just stick to the letter of
the law instead of extending


a common courtesy?
We sell.just as many tarps
at the store at the same prices
as we did before we pulled
the tarps at the landfill. It
cost the sheriff's department
detective, the Florida
Department of Revenue
investigator, the landfill per-
sonnel, the county lawyer
and us time to sort this out.
Mr. Colby never came here to
ask what the simple truth of
the matter was. It was just
easier to throw an article at
the newspaper and let the
accused sort,it out.
So now when the county
landfill doesn't offer you a
choice and you get a fine for
an uncovered load, be sure to
thank Mr. Preston Colby.

English should remain
official language
Editor:.
Questions: When using the
telephone in Mexico do you
have to,"Press 1 for
Spanish?" Will highway and
street signs in this country be
bilingual? Is the definition of
amnesty "cheap labor?"
I heard they want to sing
the "Star Spangled Banner"
in Spanish enough! It was
written by Francis Scott Key
and should be sung the way it
was.written ... in English!
Sorry if this offends anyone,
but this country was founded
using the English language
and it should be kept that
way!
There's hope yet for the
Republicans:
Sen. James Inhofe (R-
Oklahoma) said "it will be
his proposal to make English
the official language of the
United States."
Sen. Jim Bunning (R-
Kentucky) said, "Instead of
punishing these people, the
administration has crafted a
large-scale get-out-of-jail-
free pass."
Sen. David Vitter (R-
Louisiana) stated, "I believe
that if the American people
fully understood what is
buried in this bill, there
would be a massive outcry
against it."
The immigration law now
being debated in Congress is


endorsed by the White House
because businesses need the
cheap labor.
Portions'of the Bill:
Illegal immigrants:
Could seek a "Z visa,"
which would give immediate
work authorization if they
arrived in the United States
before Jan. 1, 2007.
Head of household
would have to return to their
home country within eight
years; would be guaranteed
the right to return to the
United States.
Applicants would have
Sto pay a $5,000 staggered
penalty.
Guest workers:
"Y visas" would be
issued to 400,000 guest
workers per year.
Guest workers would
enter the United States on
two-year visas, return home
for a year, then re-enter for
additional two years. May
enter three times (total six
years) if not bringing family,
but only one time if bringing
family.
Guest workers earn
points toward merit-based
green card.
May bring families on
30-day visitor visas each
year.
The late night comedians
will have a field day with the
above.
No one can keep track of
the more than 12 million ille-
gal's already in our country,
so how could this, or any
future administration control
such a program? Just think of
the enormous cost!
Nothing has been said
about the millions of dollars
being sent back to Mexico.
That money is a large part of
the Mexican economy. The
health, education and welfare
benefits illegal's receive far
out-weigh their contribution
Sto our society.

local food pantries for the
summer months and during
the hurricane season. This
food is distributed to local
churches, food banks,
Salvation Army, St. Vincent
De Paul, New Testament
Mission, Nu-Hope, Manna
Ministries and Church
Services.
A special thanks to the city
carriers, rural route carriers,

als for their little experiment.
This situation especially
irritates me because I know
how hard firemen around this
country are fighting to put
out the hundreds of fires that
are burning in the south. The
last time I checked there
were more than 240 fires
burning in Florida alone. I
think it is very sad to know
there are teens playing with
fire while hundreds of fami-
lies have already had to
evacuate their homes not
knowing if there will be a
home for them to return to
later.
I am convinced that it was
teens like these and irrespon-
sible adults that started the


majority of these fires. It
makes me very uncomfort-
able knowing that people are
so inconsiderate of the lives
of others and the weather. It
is one thing to voluntarily
put your life in danger but to
start fires that burn thousands
of acres in one area alone is
another issue.
What entertainment is
there in watching someone
burn or inflicting such pain
upon yourself? I find
absolutely no entertainment
in either situation. I do not
understand how these teens
could just take life for grant-
ed and continue to play with
fire, literally.

Good Samaritans are
appreciated
Editor:
My wife and I were driv-
ing north on Olivia Drive in
Avon Park Lakes when I
noticed some sort of develop-
ment to the west on one of
the streets. I turned left to see
what it was because we had
heard there was a lot of
development in the area. We
had driven on Olivia many
times, but never ventured off
of it before.
We drove about a quarter
mile, saw what this site
looked like and turned right
(north) to head home on
Hazelton Avenue. Just south
of Harouck Street, I followed
the path to the right and ran
into sand ... deep sand. I
immediately got. stuck .,.
deeply! ..
I walked to a house and
knocked on the door. A Mr.
Hodge answered the knock,
and I asked if I could call
AAA because 1 was stuck in
some sand. He was well
aware of my plight because
many people get stuck in the


sand on that county hon-
maintained road. He said he
would try to pull me out, but
he did not know where to
hook the chain; he didn't
want to chance pulling my
bumper off. I was permitted
to call AAA, and they said it
would be about an hour.
Mr. and Mrs. Hodge kept
us company in the shade for
an hour and a half on that hot
and dry day, even providing
us with cold water to sooth
our thirst. We talked about a
number of issues and it
turned out we had some con-
cepts in common. They knew
about the Good Samaritan
and they had been one a
number of times for those
who suffered the same fate
we did.
The AAA tow truck driver
did some reconnaissance of
.this site to insure he f .,uuld
-not get stuck, too, beingqiquite
familiar with this area. He
and Mr. Hodge got the car on
solid ground, so we could go
home. We are greatly
relieved and very apprecia-
tive.

A return to the days of yesteryear at the historic Pearce homestead


By LARRY LEVEY
News-Sun correspondent
BASINGER
or one brief, shining
afternoon on
Saturday, Old Florida
was reborn.
From the setting -
the historic Pearce
Homestead to the
tales told by a Florida historian and
storyteller, to the songs of a Florida
songwriter, to a Cracker-style meal,
some 135 folks found themselves
immersed in Cracker country.
The event, billed as a "Cracker
BBQ," was organized by Loisa
Kerwin, assistant.director of the
Florida Center for Environmental
Studies at Florida Atlantic
University, and director of
Riverwoods Field Lab in Lorida.
The outing was sponsored by
Family Lands Remembered, a com-
pany working to protect Florida's
environmental, cultural and agricul-
tural resources.
Cracker land, Cracker tales,
Cracker songs, and, of course,
Cracker food. That, in a Cracker
nutshell, is what made up the event.
Here's ghat made up the Cracker
feast: barbecued chicken, barbecued
ribs, baked beans, swamp cabbage,
potato salad, coleslaw, corn bread,
iced tea, lemonade and all kinds
of mainly homemade desserts,
including sour orange cake.
And that, folks, is a taste a
real taste of Old Florida.

Cracker tunes
Describing himself as "Florida-
born and Cracker-bred," singer-
songwriter Jerry Mincey from
Winter Haven enhanced the "Old
Florida" theme of the day with
many of his songs.
Accompanied by vocalist and
string instrument player Tony
Macaluso from Orlando, Mincey
sang songs with a strong Florida
flavor, such as "Sweet Florida
Sunshine," "Kissimmee River
Blues," "Arbuckle Water" and the
poignant "A Changing Land."
This last song contains some
words that sum up the feelings of
those that decry the changes that
Florida is undergoing, how Florida
"will never be the same" and how
"the bloody knife of progress has
struck with killing pain ..."

Cracker stories
Seated on his horse, Domino,
with his dog, Cooter, close behind,
Judge Nelson Bailey from rural
Palm Beach County, told tales of
early Florida, including native
Americans, the Spanish influence,
the cattle industry and how
Domino and Cooter symbolize a
bygone era.
Domino is a horse with Spanish
bloodlines, Bailey said, and is a


reminder that the
Spanish brought the
first horses to the
New World in the
1500s, long before
Columbus and long
before Jamestown.
"When the
Pilgrims landed, we
already had Florida
cowmen, all speak-
ing Spanish," he
said, adding that the
Spanish also
brought the first
cattle, citrus and
sugar cane and
they gave us the
name of our state:
La Florida ("Land
of Flowers").
Domino, who has
lived to the ripe old
age of 24, is not
only part of
Florida's history, he
has also made
Florida history by
taking part in the
annual Florida
Cracker Trail Ride
(from Bradenton to
Here's wha
Fort Pierce) 17 times, amp
"and that's more than tea, lemon
any other horse has the page, s
done," Bailey said. nied by Tor
In talking about the the Crackei
this trail ride which
is a re-enactment of a
cattle drive Bailey said if cattle
drives had been as fast as they're
portrayed in the movies, cattle
would have been skin and bones by
the time they reached their destina-
tion.
"Cattle were driven at grazing
speed," he said, "some 10-12 miles
a day. They would eat their way
across connected grass lands and
it was those grass lands that made
up the trail."
Up until 1949, Florida was open
range, meaning horses and cattle
had the right to roamfreely. But in
the 1940s, more and more roads
were being built and on cold
nights, cattle learned to stay warm
by sleeping on those.heat-holding
concrete roads. This resulted in
many an accident and fatalities for
both man and beast. And that's why
the fences came up.

The cow hunt
When it was time for a cattle
drive, the cattle had to be rounded
up. It was not an easy job, as the
cattle would separate and hide in
the thick woods. Enter the cattle
dogs, like Cooter, more properly
called an Old English Cur. While
"cur" means a mongrel or mixed
breed in northern states, here it
refers to a stock dog.
Instinctively, these dogs are per-
fect for rounding up Florida cattle.

First, they can work in the summer
heat (so much so, they can run
themselves to death through heat
prostration, Bailey said).
Further, these dogs are "headers,"'
meaning they work the front of the
cows to stop their forward move-
ment.
Once commanded
to "get 'em," the dogs
run to find the cattle,
stop them, bunch
them together and .
bay. "They can hold
cows together for 24
hours," Bailey said.
Once the cow men
or cow hunters (not
cowboys), as they are
known in Florida,
catch up to the cattle,
how do they move the
cattle from one spot
to another?
Enter the cow whip
and the cracking
sound it makes, which
is where the term
"Florida Cracker" got
its start.
"These whips used
to be 12-18 feet
long," Bailey said,
"but today they're Judge Nelsc
from 9-12 feet long. ored quilt t
At the top o
They're used as a tool and his Eng
for handling cows from


horses. Cows move
away from the sound
of a cracking whip. If
you want a cow to
move to its right, you
crack your whip to the
left of the cow. In this
way, you ca.n move
cows right, left, front
or back."
Does the sound of
the cracking whip
bother the horses?
"No," Bailey said.
"Horses can close
their ears and nostrils
at will. They learn to
anticipate the sound."
,Whips, by the way,
S were also used by the
S cow men to talk to
each other, as a crack-
ing whip can be heard
up to three miles
away, if the wind is
right.
"Three cracks, for
example, might mean,
' Help!' Bailey said.

Cracker
YLEVEY memories
, ribs,
, iceds As he was waiting in
top of line for the Cracker BBQ,
mpa- Dan Johnson, principal at
luring Avon Park Middle
y School, looked around at
land he knew only too
well. This was the land
that once belonged to his great aunt,
Edna Pearce, land now known as
the Pearce homestead.
"I used to work out here sum-
mers, beginning at age 12. We
worked the cattle, rounding them up
and dipping them in the dipping


vats to get rid of ticks and screw
worms.
"We'd also mark the calves by
cutting their ears for identification
- and we even branded some. And
we'd turn the bulls into steers -
this made for more tender meat and
.it controlled the breeding.
"And the judge was righi about
those cattle dogs. They'd stop the
cows from running they'd slow
them down and back them up."
As Johnson spoke, one could just
about hear the words from that
Jerry Mincey song, "A Changing
Land:"
"It will never be the same ...

'Multi-cultural quilt'
Bailey also spoke on the native
Americans in Florida and how sev-
eral tribes lived here long before
the Seminoles, with the tribes deci-
mated through warfare and diseases
introduced by the Spanish.
He also talked about how escaped
slaves could join tribes arid dur-
ing the Seminole Indian Wars (also
known as the Florida Wars of
Indian Removal), the "best leaders"
the Seminoles had were these black
escapees.
"They could speak both English
and the Indian language," Bailey
said.
Later, when the Seminoles were
moved out west, many of these
blacks were hired by the U.S. Army
as scouts and became better known
as the "Buffalo Soldiers."
Ending his talk, Bailey talked
about the importance of keeping
Florida history alive by saying,
"Don't cheat our children out of the
multicolored quilt that is Florida."

hat is Florida' during the Cracker BBQ at the Pearce Homstead on Saturday.

'Shrek theThird' is good, but not great


It's the month of movie
franchises, and "Shrek the
Third" is caught in the mid-
dle. The film comes on the
heels of "Spider-Man 3,"
which has dominated the box
office in its two weeks of
theatrical existence. And it
comes a week before another
sure-fire blockbuster, "Pirates
of thebCaribbean: Dead
Man's Chest." But the Shrek
franchise is the best of the
bunch, yet it's getting the
least amount of buzz.
Unfortunately, "Shrek the
Third" will probably be for-
gotten after "Pirates" opens
today. And that's a shame.
"Shrek the Third" isn't a
great movie by any means,
but it's certainly better than
the average sequel.
This film's plot involves
old villain Prince Charming
(voiced by Rupert Everett),
who is relegated to doing
cheap dinner theater after
being vanquished from Far
Far Away. He wants his
revenge on Shrek,-so he gath-
ers a slew of fairy-tale vil-
lains such as Hook,
Cinderella's evil stepsisters
and the Headless Horseman
and attempts to give his new
followers their "happily ever
after" by taking over the
kingdom.
In the meantime, Far Far
Away's King Harold (John
Cleese) is dying, leaving
Shrek (Mike Myers) as the
heir to the throne. But Shrek
doesn't want to-be king, so
he sets out with Donkey
(Eddie Murphy) and Puss in
Boots (Antonio Banderas) to
find the only remaining heir
- who happens to be an awk-
ward kid from the land of
Worcestershire (like the
sauce) named Artie (Justin
Timberlake).
And while Shrek and his
pals are looking for Artie,
Charnung and his henchmen r

take over Far Far Away, kid-
napping Shrek's wife Fiona
(Cameron Diaz) and her
friends in the process.
There's more plot in this
movie than in the first two,
and a large part of the film
revolves around Shrek's
reluctance to have children.
Some of the themes, such as
the reluctance to become a
parent and fears that you
won't be a good one, aren't
really themes kids would
understand. But then again,
there's plenty in the Shrek
movies that doesn't seem to
be geared towards children.
And that's one thing I've
never quite understood about
the Shrek series. I always
find myself asking: who
exactly are these movies
meant for? There were plenty
of kids in the theater who
seemed to be enjoying the
movie, but most of the jokes
and broader themes are too
advanced for them to under-
stand.
For example, the movie
has a scene that directly ref-
.erences Quentin Tarantino's
ulra iolen "'Kill Bill" series.

Also, there's an odd joke
involving kids getting high
off frankincense and myrrh
that seems a little advanced
for little kids (at least, I hope
it is). The movie also features
more swipes at the Disney
franchise (a trademark of the
first film) that kids probably
won't understand.
But on the other hand, the
film is too kid-centered to
fully appeal to adults. There
were lots of adults in the the-
ater without kids, proof that
this is a franchise that
appeals to an older age
group. But the "Shrek" films
have always straddled a line
between adult-centered and
kid-centered, which means
the movies aren't going to be
fully satisfying to people of
any age.
Kids won't get all the
jokes, but they'll love the
more comical and slapstick
parts. And while adults will
get more of the jokes, they
won't enjoy the parts meant
for kids.
The film has a good over-
all message for its younger
viewers, but the kids have to
wade through the ever-pres-
ent adult humor to get that
message. And for those with
short attention spans (like
pretty much every kid), that
could be a.tall task.
Another major problem
with the movie is that it isn't
particularly memorable.
There were some funny
moments here and there, but
the film isn't as clever as the
first one and several of the
jokes just fall flat.
But while the jokes might
not be groundbreaking, the
animation certainly is. The
animation in this movie is
incredible the characters
are beyond lifelike, and the
detail is astounding.
Unlike 'some movie' series,
the quality of the "Shrek"

film in the trilogy fits right
in: it's entertaining, it has its
good moments, and it doesn't

Are you in the Lord's army?


We sing the song
every year in
Vacation Bible
School but are you
really in the Lord's
army? You see the
Lord's army is
about more than.
words to a song.
It's about real com- Ver
mitment and perse-
verance. Spil
It is interesting Viti
to note how many
times Paul refers to Verno
warfare and speaks
in military terms when
describing the Christian life.
"Fight the good fight of.
faith..." (1 Timothy 6:12).
"For though we walk in the
flesh, we do not war against
the flesh" (2 Corinthians
10:3). "I have fought the
good fight..." (2 Timothy
4:7).
It seems that our problem
in the church many times is
that we know how to fight
we just don't know who to
fight. Our battle is not
against each other as
Christians. Did we never
learn the very basic life les-
son "united we stand, divided
we fall"?
If we are going to be in the
Lord's army we must learn
who the enemy is. 1 Peter


Ion's
ritual
amin
n Carrell


5:8 says that we
need to "Be sober,'
be vigilant because
your adversary the
devil as a roaring
lion walks about
seeking whom he
may devour." Be
vigilant! That's a
fighting term! We
are at war with the
devil! This enemy is
relentless and backs
away from no one.
In Matthew 3 Jesus


is baptized by John
the Baptist. In Matthew 4 the
devil is there to tempt King
Jesus. If the devil will stand
toe to toe with the Son of
God don't you think he will
stand eye to eye with you
and me?
We have a real enemy who
wants to destroy us. So now
that we know who the enemy
is (Satan) let's enlist in
God's army so that with the
help of the Father, Son and
Spirit we can make our
homes, churches and commu-
nities strongholds for the
Lord'!

Lake Placid
Church of Christ
LAKE PLACID The
title of Sunday morning's ser-
mon will be "No Not One."
Sometimes the greatest ser-
mons ever preached are the
songs members sing during
their worship. Members need
to stop, look and listen to the
words of the songs they sing.
This Sunday morning, min-
ister Verlon Carrell's message
will be from a song entitled
"There's not a Friend Like
the Lowly Jesus No 'Not
One." His text and, no doubt
the inspiration for the song,
will be Psalm 14:1-3.
Come join the Lake Placid
Church of Christ as members
look at some things this
Sunday morning of which
there is none no not one!
Bible classes for all ages
begin it 9 a.m., morning wor-
ship at 10 a.m. and evening
worship at 6 p.m.

lowed by fellowship time.

Panther Partners aids students


seeking technical training


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK A little more than a year
ago, South Florida Community College and
Heartland Workforce formed a partnership to
launch Panther Partners, a program that helps
young people who left high school without
diplomas get the training they need to become
employed in skilled occupations.
As Panther Partners wraps up its inaugural
year, Eddie Cuencas, program specialist for
SFCC Youth Services, predicts that 98 percent
of the first class of 28 students will earn cer-
tificates for completing various technical
training programs through SFCC's Division of
Applied Sciences and Technologies.
Just as importantly, they will go on to
become gainfully employed, some with high
school diplomas in hand.
Panther Partners is open to eligible students,
ages 16-21, who either dropped out of high
school or who earned the required credits but
did not pass the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test. Through Panther Partners,
they can enroll in one- and two-year technical
programs offered at the SFCC campuses in
Highlands, DeSoto and Hardee counties. As
they complete their vocational, training, they
receive the tutoring the\ need to earn a high
school diploma or a GED certificate and pass
the FCAT. They can participate in workforce
training programs offered by Heartland
Workforce and research careers .and job oppor-
tunities at Heartland! \oi force's' One-Stop
Career Center or the SFCC Career Center.
Monica Arreguin, 19,, of Avon Park, is
among the first class of Panther Partners stu-
dents preparing to celebrate their success.
When she began the program last October, she
had completed her high school coursework but
needed to pass the FCAT. Along with receiv-
ing FCAT tutoring through SFCC's Tutoring
and Learning Center, Arreguin was able to
enroll in the college's Cosmnetology program.
"I always wanted to work in this job,"
Arreguin said. Her determined attitude con-
vinced Mary Starling. professor. and program
manager, Cosmetology, to gi\e her a chance.
.In July, Arreguin will. earn her certificate,
paving the way for her t' become a licensed
cosmetologist.

Mary Starling (left), program manager,
Cosmetology, instructs Monica Arreguin as
she styles a client's hair at the SFCC
Cosmetology Clinic at the Highlands
Campus.

"She's very determined and well liked bN
her peers and her instructors," Cuencas -aid.
who is now helping Arreguin secure a fll-
time job by the time she graduates. "She has
good work ethics, and overall she's a very out-
standing student..She's one of the top 10 in her
class."
Arreguin's Panther Partners classmates are
exploring many vocations, Cuencas said.
Some are completing programs in Automotive
Service Technology, Automotive Collisjoni
Repair and Refinishing, and Air Conditioning
arid Refrigeration. One is finishing the prereq-
uisite classes he needs to enter the Practical
Nursing program.
' Panther ,Partners is accepting students for
programs that begin July 1. The deadline to
qualify is June 30. Many forms of financial
assistance are available. Interested students
can call Cuencas at 784-7161 or Jackie
Tillman, case data specialist, at 784-7155.

29th Annual FACA All-Star Baseball Classic




Local stars look to show their stuff

Four area players take field for East team at 7:30 p.m. today


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne @newssun.com
SEBRING As he walked
toward Fireman's Field and
the first day of practice for the
29th annual Florida Athletic
Coaches Association All-Star
Baseball weekend, former
Sebring outfielder Charlie
Peck already had a grin on his
face.
Sure, the excitement of
being named to participate in
the prestigious event was a
part of the smile.
The knowledge that he
would be viewed by dozens of
major league scouts played a
part in the beaming grin.
But what really brought the
smile to Peck's face was
something he had noticed as
he walked in that could great-
ly benefit his effort.
"Take a look at the flag-
pole," he triumphantly said.
A quick glance showed the
Stars and Stripes practically
starched and pointing out
toward right field something
the left-handed hitting Peck
could make good use of in his
hopes of wowing the scouts.
Wowing the scouts was an
obvious sentiment running
through the crowd as players
from the East and West teams
took turns taking batting prac-
tice.
"I really just want to do
well and hopefully catch the
eye of some of the,scouts,"
Chaz Abeln said.
Already signed to go to and
play for Florida International
University, Abeln was asked
what his choice would be if

Krause of Wauchula, will take the field as part of the East team in this weekends FACA All-
Star Classic.


told by one of the scouts that
he would be taken in the
upcoming. draft.
"I'd have to say, I'm
going," he said. "It depends
on the round and the offer, but
to get that chance, I'd have to
take it."
A mindset Peck, an SFCC
signee, readily agreed with.
"That would be awesome,"
he said, regardless of the
round. "I'd go."
And with the level of talent
they find themselves compet-


ing with and against this
weekend, such thoughts easi-
ly make their way into the
eager young players minds.
"It just feels great to be
playing in this," Abeln said.
"To be with the best players in
the state, some of the best in
the country."
SAnd the talent level was
soon apparent as the West
team was the first to take bat-
ting practice.
The normal ping of the alu-
minum bats used by high


schoolers was now replaced
with the familiar crack of the
wooden bats of the pros -
with some very pro-like
results.
Frozen-rope line-drives to
the gaps, monstrous home
.runs caroming off roof's
beyond the outfield walls.

hitters were getting some
impressive hacks causing
Abeln ,to jokingly wonder

Dixie League Baseball


Kelly Payne takes Dixie city title


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne @ newssun.com
SEBRING It was a matchup of
familiar foes in the Sebring Dixie Youth
Majors (ages 11-12) City Tournament
Championship Thursday night, as Kelly
Payne Tree Service took the title going
away with a 15-1 win over the Elks at
S the Max Long Activities Complex.
The two had just faced each other on
Tuesday, with the Elks giving Payne
their only loss of the tournament, 8-2.
That forced an extra game in the tour-
nament, with three teams having one
loss and a coin flip determining the
bye and the extra game matchup.
But Payne played through it, topping
Bayview and setting up the return
engagement with the Elks.
And for this one the Tree Service
pulled out its' big lumber, breaking
through with four first-inning runs off
the bat of Gafrett Martinez, who blasted
a grand slam home run over the right
field wall.
Jake Bryan was on the mound for
Kelly Payne and worked through a
scoreless first before the offense had
another scoring burst to stretch the lead.
Carlton Borecky led off the second
with a double to right, followed one out
later by walks to C.J. Payne and Bryan
to load the bases.
Wade Faircloth then singled to bring
in Borecky and Payne and Martinez
drove in Bryan with a one-base hit.
An error soon allowed Faircloth to
come in and consecutive walks to Jacob
Hamilton and Austin Hedrick forced in
another run for a 9-0 Payne lead.
Jordan Baker got things going for the
Elks in the second, drawing an inning-
opening walk, moving to second on a
wild pitch, to third on a ground out and
in to score on Jacob Cram's bouncer to
short.
Austin Westergom followed with a
single, but Bryan got out of the inning
without any further damage.
Gray Lawrence and Hamilton each
drove in runs in the third to nudge the
lead to 11-1, and when the Elks failed to
score in their half of the third, Kelly

CJ. Payne joyously runs off the field after the final out was made in the Kelly
Payne Tree Service victory for the Dixie Youth Majors (ages 11-12) City
Championship.


Payne could sense a mercy rule victory
was within reach.
They made sure to add the insurance
runs and put it out of reach in the
fourth, putting four more runs on the
board.
Wyatt Johnson doubled to left with
one out and scored on Payne's double to
right.
A ground out and an error allowed


Payne to score and after Faircloth and
Martinez singled, Lawrence, Hamilton
and Matt Simpson each singled to put
up the final margin of victory.
"It just feels great," head coach Kelly
Payne said. "We've been coaching this
same core of kids for about seven years
now, and we've reached the finals
before, but this is the first time we've

Fishing is good for



bass and bluegills


With all the talk of low
water in Lake Istokpoga, I
received a most welcome
note from Cypress Isle RV
Park. Though some boat
ramps may be out of service,
their ramp is open and
usable. During the 2000-
2001, when the lake was
draw down to 35.9 ft., their
boat ramp was open.
The larger bass from
Istokpoga are being taken on
live wild shiners and Cypress
Isle RV Park keeps a good
supply of them, caught right
out of the lake. This park is a
campground and not a mobile
home park. They have rental
cabins and some of their
occupants maxed out on
bluegills and shellcrackers in
the last few days. So if you
want to get out on Istokpoga,
give them a try.
About this time of the year
I get a little restless when I
start thinking about previous
vacations spent in the beauti-
ful green hills of Kentucky
and the Carolinas. I marvel at
the way those cool and shady
hardwood valleys seem to
erase the troubles and cares
of everyday life. And those
bealitiful mountain top sun-
sets beckon you to delay
your return to reality.
But, getting back to real
life, I don't know if we will
be making a vacation trip
this year. Like so many other
folks, we will be limited in
our travels by the high cost
of gasoline. It's a little hard
to swallow when you hear
about the tremendous profits
that oil companies are raking
in while we who must use
their products have to cut our
expenditures everywhere else
to make them even more

wealthy.
We usually visit relatives
in the mountains of eastern
Kentucky and grandchildren
in central Indiana on our
summer trips. The mountains
of Kentucky are not tall
jagged peaks like those in the
western states, but seen from
a distance, are a soft rising
green outline of that part of
the country where Daniel
Boone and Davy Crockett
once explored.
Now, the natural beauty of
these mountains is being
destroyed by giant draglines
and bulldozers. Coal mining
companies are tearing down
and flattening the mountains.
The tops are bulldozed into
the valleys below creating a
flat terrain, bare of trees and
native vegetation.
More than a third of a mil-
lion acres have been strip-
mined in this fashion in the
last 30 years. The rich, deep
topsoil is gone, buried
beneath the rocky overburden
and the rippling mountain
streams that have cascaded
over rock-strewn falls for
thousands of years are being
destroyed and buried under
the rubble scraped from
above.

Continued from 1D
There are very few under-
ground coal mines today.
Strip mining dominates most
coal mining areas. In just a
matter of weeks, tree filled
mountains are turned into
platL ius. The hollers are
filled with the rock and soil
the coal companies call.
"overburden."
The local residents are
being deprived of all poten-
tial for a decent life. The
politicians whom the local
coal companies support are
silent when it comes to
enforcing regulations that
would stop the destruction of
the world in which the citi-
zens are forced to live.
My brother-in-law, Johnny,
who lives right in the heart
of this destruction, has been
calling me, urging me to
come and go fishing with
him on Paintsville Lake in
Johnson County, Kentucky.
The lake is about twelve to
fifteen miles long and was
formed when the Corps of
Engineers constructed a dam
in a deep mountain valley.


Coal mining hasn't touched
this area yet.
Largemouth and small-
mouth bass along with trout
and walleyes inhabit the lake
in large numbers. In some of
the deeper valleys the water
surpasses 100-feet in depth.
It is an adventure for first
time visitors to cruise its
length taking in the beautiful
hardwood foliage that adorns
the mountain sides.
Deer and wild turkeys are
a common site along the
water's edge. Today, majestic
elk can be seen grazing on
the open slopes. The elk were
brought from Colorado and
other western states to
replace their ancestors killed
off many years ago. It is such
a beautiful mountain lake, I
hope the coal companies are
not allowed to destroy it.
Johnny says the bass fish-
ing on the lake is really good
right now. He has been catch-
ing the limit every trip in the
past couple of weeks. That's
great Johnny, if you'll leave
a few in the lake, I'll do my
best to get up there.

tributions from everybody -

South ahead of the rest, Payne
actually added more to the
list that helped.
"All the parents have given
us such great support," he
Said. "Throughout all the
years they've been so posi-
tive and there was never any
disagreements or anything,

The scouts looking on were
evident spread around the
stands, along the fence-line,
but their numbers were some-
what hard to gauge.
That was, until the 60-yard
dash, a main part of any major
league tryout or look-see.
When the West team had
finished taking their cuts, the
players assembled along the
left field line, while the
scouts gathered and their
numbers could now truly be
seen easily within the range
of 100 or more.
But the vision of the talent-
seekers, the potential life'
changers wasn't apparently
adding any pressure.
"I just really want to have
some fun," Abeln said. "I
hope everyone has a good
time, plays well and nobody
gets hurt."
For, as is the case with
most of the players here, they
have their backup already set.
