Memorial Day Events


Thomas to


speak at 2


services
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID -
Highlands County Democrat
Party chairman and retired
Navy Lt. Cmdr. Zane Thomas
will speak at two Memorial
Day services Monday.
The first ceremony begins
at 11 a.m. at the Lake Placid
Elks Lodge at the intersection
of County Road 621 and U.S.
27. The second is at 2 p.m. at
Lakeview Memorial Gardens
in Avon Park.
"There's a small segment
of our society that provides
the freedom for the rest of
us," the 25-year Navy veteran
said Friday.
Thomas was with an
amphibian float that entered
Afghanistan's waters in the
opening days of the war
there.
"We were
the first ones
there," he
said, adding
that the
Marines rid-
ing with him
SE were the first
Thomas c to make land-
fall.
But, Thomas' unit would
also take away two dead
Marines who were assigned
to another Marine
Expeditionary Unit.
The: Elks ceremony will
include 'a flag-hoisting by
American Legion Post 25 and
Boy Scout Troop 482 and
Marti Capodiferro will sing
the national anthem.
Thomas' speech to the
Legion will be brief, he said.
He'll focus on devotion to
duty and standing the watch.
After being introduced by
County Commissioner Don
Bates at Lakeview, Thomas
will talk about honor.
The event at Lakeview
Memorial Gardens, 854
Memorial Drive, is sponsored
by the Highlands County
Veterans Council.
In a press release,
American Party of Florida
state chairman Tom Macklin
encouraged families to attend
a ceremony of their choosing.
"More and more of our
patriotic observances have
been constructed as opportu-
nities to benefit our nation's
retailers, theme parks and
beaches than to honor those
who have fought for our free-
dom," Macklin said, noting
that Memorial Day is "yet
another of those four-day
weekends for many of our
Highlands County adminis-
tration."

SEBRING Highlands
County manufactured home
owners won't get a piece of
a $15 million pie budgeted
by the Florida Legislature.
Gov. Charlie Crist vetoed
the funding that would have
given select manufactured
home communities up to
$3,500 per home to upgrade
older units to current county
codes.
Rick Ingler, Federation of
Manufactured Homeowners
District 6 president, said up
to 500 homes countywide
might have realized
improvements through the
program.
"We want our $15 million
back," Ingler said Friday.
"We don't think it's some-
thing the governor should
have whacked at all."
The money wasn't neces-
sarily nixed in a spending
cut to relieve taxpayers.
According to Ingler, the
money was transferred into
the My Safe Florida Home
budget.
He said many low- and
fixed-income Floridians live
in antiquated manufactured

homes that don't live up to
current standards.
"We're smarter than we
used to be," Ingler said,
explaining that construction
methods have improved
while county codes are more
stringent in the past 20
years. "The codes are much
tougher now, they were
almost non-existent then."
The upgrades would have
strengthened additions such
as Florida rooms and car-
ports. Applicants would
have been from selected
communities, and would not
have been allowed to apply

Highlands County tax certificate sale now under way


Interest high for online auction of nearly 10,000 accounts on delinquent tax rolls


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING The property
tax rolls in Highlands County
don't close for almost another
week yet, but already people
have been submitting bids on
delinquent tax certificates.
For the second year in a row,
Highlands County Tax
Collector Charles Bryan has
been conducting the auction
online.
"It has been going on since
May 11," Bryan told the
Highlands County Voters
League at their recent meeting
where he outlined a number of
progressive measures he has
instituted since taking office.
Bryan began the new
method last year, enlisting the
help of the Grant Street
Group, a Pittsburgh-based
auction house. What used to


be a day-long marathon that
drained bidders and collection
office staff alike has now
turned into a nearly two-week
opportunity that wraps up in a
matter of hours.
It also enables bidders from
all over the world to partici-
pate with a few keystrokes
and clicks of a mouse.
The results have been
rewarding. Last year the pro-
gram saw 7,145 properties
sold out of the 7,745 that were
advertised, 380 more than in
2005 under the previous live
auction method. Bryan said it
had been so successful the
same format is being followed
this year.
Bids on properties are
given to those who offer the
lowest interest rate, and the
bids have been coming in
since the sale was first adver-


tised. Unlike a silent auction
where people can see what
others have offered, this is a
blind bid. It will not be until
May 31 the winners will be
announced.
At that time, individual
properties will be rolled into
batches, and will be closed
hourly.
As of last Friday there were
9,468 accounts down from
an original number of 10,895
properties. That continues to
be an ever-changing number
as people come in and pay off
their property taxes before the
May 31 deadline.
The number of bidders also
continues to climb, with many
professional groups logging
on, making their bids and log-
ging off sometimes within
hours of closing. The bids are
done in quarter-percent incre-


ments, and Bryan said there
are many times the certifi-
cates are sold for just a quar-
ter or half percent.
In order to bid, those inter-
ested must log on to the tax
collector's special Web site
for the sale at www.bidhigh-
landscounty.com and fill out
all the forms and documents.
It includes registering, filling
out an Internal Revenue
Service Form W-9, complet-
ing a direct deposit form,
establishing a budget and
making a $500 deposit before
a bidder number can be
assigned.
The bidding starts at 18
percent and interest is bid
down with the award going to
the lowest bidder. Those prop-
erties that are not sold are
picked up by the county at the
full 18 percent. All the addi-


Changes in the wind for local Republican Party


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING The
Highlands County Republican
Party Executive Committee
moved into their new, rent-
free headquarters last week.
There were strings attached
to the new location at 461 S.
Commerce Ave., which
Robert Garcia owns.
"He offered us the office
space with the challenges that
we grow the party each
month, be present in the com-
munity, et cetera," committee
chairman Justine Devlin said
Friday. "If we accept the chal-
lenge, the office would be
free."
The party was considering
closing its doors up the road
at 200 N. Commerce Ave.,
vice-chairman Marvin Kahn
told the News-Sun recently,
but then came Garcia's "too
good to pass up" offer.


National Black Republican chairman to
speak in Sebring; tickets available for
GOP October debate


The headquarters retained
its phone number, 402-5456.
The office should open
Friday, Devlin said, and will
be manned "as best we can"
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. week-
days.
"We're really hoping we
can grow the party and get
more people involved," she
said.
Kahn noted that some key
leadership recently left the
Republican Party for another.
The headquarters at the
epicenter of Highlands
County politics across from
the courthouse and within
sight of Sebring and county
government offices isn't
the only change for the execu-


tive committee.
Monthly meetings were
moved to Inn on the Lakes. A
buffet dinner begins at 5:30
p.m. in the Palm Room, and
the meeting convenes at 6:30
p.m.
Devlin said Thursday's
meeting will be eventful on
account of the guest speaker
and a lottery.
Frances Rice, national
chairwoman of the National
Black Republicans
Association, will address the
committee.
"We're trying to grow the
party in that area," Devlin
said, when asked at what level
does the black community of
Highlands County participate

grades and other factors taken into consideration, such as extra curricular school activi-
ties, job experience and test scores. President of the University of Florida Alumni
Association Phil Griffin was in attendance to speak with the future Gators about becom-
ing part of the Gainesville tradition.

want to remind them that
we're here for them."
Devlin said Rice has a
"gentle spirit" and is a
"dynamic, wonderful speak-
er."


The other highlight, she
said, will be the registration
for a lottery to attend the Oct.
21 Republican presidential
debate in Orlando.
Sponsored by the
Republican Party of Florida,
seating is limited, so each
county will receive one ticket
per 1,000 registered
Republicans plus eight tickets
for committee officers.
With 27,000 registered
Republicans, that means 35
Highlands Republicans can
attend the debate. At the
meeting, Devlin said those
interested will fill out "bal-
lots" indicating their interest
and committing themselves to
front the $100 ticket post., ..
Of that, 25 percent 'Will be
returned to the executive
committee, she said. The
debate is scheduled to air live
on Fox News and will be sim-
ilar in venue as the recent
South Carolina debate.
The executive committee
has open, public meetings the
last Thursday of each month.

Because the bidding site
and all the records on individ-

ested because they can do any
research they desire online

Bryan said there are some

the auction.
"This is not a sale of real
property; it is a lien for the
amount of delinquent taxes
plus interest," he explained.

A surprise for teachers


,t! ." ....















News-Sun photo by TREY CHRISTY
Kindergarten teachers Stacy Caldwell (left) and Alisha Richards are surprised to see the
entire school outside of Woodlawn Elementary School Friday afternoon. Students and
staff wished the eight departing teachers the best of luck at the Kindergarten Center,
opening in the fall. The two teachers along with Brenda Shinholser, Donna Hoover,
Maleah Bowers, Stacy Smehyl, Judy Goodwin, and Jennifer Brinling will leave
Woodlawn Elementary next year to start at the new center. The teachers were picked up
by a stretch limousine in the morning and taken to breakfast, but didn't expect to see
hundreds of students waiting for them when they returned. The eight pulled out cam-
eras and tried their best to fight back tears as students jumped out of line to give their
beloved teachers farewell hugs.

Lake Wales Police Department


looking for murder suspect


The News-Sun www.newssun.com


Making a commitment


News-Sun staff report
SEBRING Lake Wales
police are looking for a sus-
pect in the shooting death of a
woman early Saturday morn-
ing.
According to reports,
police responded to a call at
the Lake Wales Garden apart-
ments around 1:34 a.m. when
a neighbor reported hearing
gunshots. Police found
Chavella Pittman, 29, dead as
the result of multiple gunshot
wounds.
Police are searching for
Ben Junio Terrell, 40, of


Gainesville, in connection to
the murder. He is Pittman's
former boyfriend and was
arrested earlier this month
after he allegedly burglarized
her apartment and threatened
to kill her with a knife.
According to reports, he
was arrested by Lake Wales
police at the time and charged
with aggravated assault,
armed burglary and criminal
mischief. He was released six
days later after posting a
$20,500 bond.
Police describe Terrell as a
black male weighing 270
pounds and standing 6-foot-1.


He has a scar on his neck,
back and right forearm. He
may be driving a silver, 1998
four-door Grand Prix bearing
a Florida tag W48 4CD.
Police believe he may be trav-
eling to Gainesville, the West
Palm Beach area or possibly
Birmingham, Ala.
He is considered armed and
dangerous.
Anyone with information
on his whereabouts can con-
tact the Lake Wales Police
Department at (863) 678-
4223 or Polk County Crime
Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS.


County volunteers needed to provide


valuable data on scrub-jay families


Special to the News-Sun
The Nature Conservancy
will offer an additional train-
ing opportunity for volunteers
interested in becoming "citi-
zen scientists" for its success-
ful Jay Watch Program at 8
a.m. Tuesday, June 5, at
Royce Ranch Unit in
Highlands County.


Citizen scientists success-
fully documented Florida
scrub-jay populations
throughout central Florida in
2006 and are needed to con-
tinue the work this summer.
Highlands County sites that
are part of Jay Watch 2007
extend from Avon Park to
Venus. There is a specific


need for volunteers in the
Lake Placid and Sebring
areas. Sebring locations will
include sites at Highlands
Hammock State Park and near
Leisure Lakes. The time com-
mitment can be a minimum of
three days to adopt and survey
one site, or can be an opportu-
nity to get an in-depth look at
various scrub-jay sites.
The Nature Conservancy
project to gather information
about this threatened species
provided excellent compara-
tive data, according to Dr.
Reed Bowman, associate
research biologist and head of
the Avian Ecology Lab at
Archbold Biological Station.
Bowman said the research
program, called Jay Watch,
will continue to be helpful as
long as data collection is con-
sistent between years.
Volunteers need no prior
experience. Contact Cheryl
Millett at (863) 635-7506.


SEBRING The
Highlands County Democrat
Party will hold its monthly
meeting Tuesday at its head-
quarters, 4216 Sebring
Parkway.
Local party chairman Zane
Thomas recently selected
Chet Brojek to chair the sub-
committee for candidate
selection/support.
"There just was no support
last time," Thomas said.


"Those of us who lived
through that, well we have a
lot to put down on paper."
Thomas is in the process of
establishing subcommittees
and is looking for local
Democrats who are willing to
volunteer their time.
Tuesday's meeting is open
to the public and begins at 7
p.m. For more information,
call the headquarters at 385-
8601.

tion, acceptance, leadership, achievement, creativity, talent and fun while making com-
mitments to walk away from violence, not to use alcohol, tobacco products or illegal
drugs and to wait until marriage before having sex. The eight graduates from LPE are
Sean Hoogstraten, Sarah Holland, Erica Murray, Monique Moore, Shativia Clark,

application for a Habitat
home is to attend the orienta-
tions.
The families were standing


in line to attend one of the
two sessions offered that took
place at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Some families started lining
up at midnight the night
before and others stood in line
all day.
Nancy Ginorio, family
services coordinator for
Highlands County Habitat for
Humanity, explained the
process to get a new home to
all the families and then gave
applications to all the atten-
dees.

Highlands County has
6,510 cost-burdened house-
holds and 1,652 overcrowded
families who need help.
Highlands County Habitat
for Humanity has brought 100
families out of sub-standard
living conditions and has
committed to the challenge of
eliminating sub-standard
housing by the year 2025. The
organization is in need of land
and financial support,to reach
this goal.
Habitat officials have visit-
ed some of the homes of fam-
ilies wanting a hand up and
found unsanitary conditions;
raw sewage from open septic
tanks and also drainage from
the sinks going directly into
the back yard. Statistics show
108 homes without proper
plumbing.
Rooms were found with the
ceiling hanging loose from
water damage and mold from
water leakage. This is just an
example of what was found
on home inspection visits.
If a resident has land that
they would like to donate or
can make a financial gift, call
Highlands County Habitat for
Humanity at 453-9695 or e-
mail hchabitat@habitathigh
lands.org.
Any amount will help, from
$1 to financing an entire
home. Opportunities are
available for organizations,
churches or individuals to
band together with volun-
teers, land or donations to
help restore hope and rebuild
lives.

JENKINS
Continued from 1A
He was surprised by the
recognition, and made clear
his colleagues deserved much
of the credit, because he is
often away from his Sebring
office.
"If there's a veteran func-
tion going on I try to attend
it," he said, adding he also
spends time in Hardee and
Desoto counties. "The staff
here is great. When I am out
on the road, they step right up
to the plate."
Jenkins especially credits
Harry Pierce, a friend who is
retired from the Army, for
being a role model and getting
him off to a good start in his
second career.
The work Jenkins does
varies a great deal. He does
everything from finding job
opportunities or training pro-
grams, to problem solving
issues, like missing docu-
ments, to getting help for vet-
erans with emotional prob-
lems.


SPEAK
Continued from 1A
Akin to the "reason for the season"
slogan during Christmas, Macklin is call-
ing on Americans, or at least Highlands
County residents, to remember Monday
for what it is.
He is critical of how national holidays
are scheduled to round out governmental
weekends.
-We hope thit residents %idl take their
- children-to these observances and meet


'(Jenkins is) a
very vocal
advocate assisting
veterans.'

DENISE WILLIAMS
County VSO assistant
veteran's service officer
Jenkins is eager to help,
including families of veterans
and female veterans.
Slapping his chest for
emphasis he said, "Here I am,
come and use me. Let us help
you. The services are here."
Denise Williams, assistant
veteran's service officer for
the Highlands County Veteran
Services Office, has worked
with Jenkins for about five
years.
"He is a very vocal advo-
cate assisting veterans," she
said. "He thoroughly enjoys
what he does, and he is really
good at it.
"I remember a case in
Hardee County, where he got
a disabled veteran a job, even


though the veteran was in a
wheel chair. He really goes
the extra mile."
Jenkins, who was born in
Brooklyn, N.Y., and raised on
Long Island, joined the Air
Force in 1969. He retired in
1990 after a career that took
him all over Europe.
He was crew chief for the
Thunder Birds for two years.
After starting his own land-
scaping business in
Louisiana, he followed family
to Florida in 1992. That led to
his going back to school he
studied at South Florida
Community College and
then to. the work he does now.
He pursued the job, he said,
and has no plans of leaving.
"I am available by e-mail,
by phone, and in person," he
said. "You don't need an
appointment. We are (the
place) where you can come to
for help. That beacon. That
lighthouse."
Jenkins can be reached at
385-3672, ext. 231, or e-
mailed at hjenkins@heart

the people who fought, and remember
those who died," Macklin said. "May we
also look to observe it on the day it was
designated."
General John Logan, national com-
mander of the Grand Army of the
Republic, proclaimed Memorial Day on
May 5, 1868, according to usmemorial-
day.org.
It was first observed May 30. New
York was the first state to officially rec-
ognize Memorial Day, which honored
soldiers who died-during the Civil War. .
It began as Decoration Day, according

individually.
Ingler guessed the $3,500
government aid would have
reflected up to $200 in annu-
al savings and could have
prevented damages in the
tens of thousands of dollars.
"I really worry about the
future of the much older units
because nobody will insure
them," Ingler said, noting
Citizens Insurance as an
exception.
Run by the state, Citizens
is considered the insurance of
last resort. As such, it is man-
dated to cost at least $1 more
than the next highest policy.
Often, Citizens is three to
four times more than compa-
rable carriers, Ingler said.
The Federation will contin-
ue to fight for this funding for
the next legislative session,
he said.
"They're still good
homes," Ingler said. "And, if
you don't have a hurricane,
they're excellent."


to history.com, and observers decorated
grave markers of fallen Civil War sol-
diers North and South buried at
Arlington National Cemetery.
The South, however, refused to honor
Memorial Day until World War I, when it
was modified to include all wars' dead.
According to the Web site, Florida is
one of eight states that hold separate
observances for Confederate casualties.
Florida's date was April 26.
Congress changed holiday observanc-
es,in 1971oto guarantee,three-day week-
ends for civil servants.

So many termites,



so little time


WITH TUFFLEY

Christopher Tuffley


When it comes to most
insects, I am a cold-blooded,
enthusiastic murderer, and I have
no remorse.
I have been known to leap
coffee tables in pursuit of a tar-
get, furled newspaper held high
at the ready, while cackling
maniacally, "Die you bug, die."
Take heart those of you who
root for the roaches more
escape than get caught.
Add to those survivors the
other estimated 8 million species
of insect, of which, according to
the Insect Zoo Web site, only
920,000 have been counted and
categorized, and it's a shock to
realize we share the Earth with
trillions, maybe zillions, of these
highly varied creatures.
Now for the most part we
coexist peacefully, blissfully
unav are of each other.


Then there are the other times.
Like when your foot goes
through a seemingly solid wood
floor, or a crew of palmetto bugs
carry off the Thanksgiving
turkey.
That is when men and women
like Donald and Tina Clarke step
in.
Clarke and his wife own and
operate Clarke Pest Control in
Lake Placid. They work to make
our lives bearable by keeping
our homes and possessions pest
free.
Clarke explained that there are
four different levels of operation
under the pest control umbrella
- lawn, general household
pests, termites and wood pests
and fumigation and each
requires a separate license from
the state.
Technicians work under an
employer's license.
Clarke is credentialed for
everything but fumigation -
which is the process of tenting a
building.
I joined him for two opera-
tions, one dealing with subter-
ranean termites, the other with a
lawn.
The termites came first.
We went to a wood frame
house that had sustained signifi-
cant damage from a termite
infestation 10 years ago.
What had been solid pine now
looked like corrugated card-
board, only it was soft and
spongy. I could poke my pen
through it.
Worse, on top of the old dam-
age, the home owners were faced

Wayne Cook prepares to spray a house's crawl space to protect it
from termites. It is important to create a complete barrier around,
and under a house. Termites forage randomly until they find a food
source. Then they set about their work with a single-minded deter-
mination. Clarke said the best protection is annual check-ups,
because once damage can be seen it is already very late in the
game.


with a new infestation.
Here's how it happens.
Termites live in colonies, like
bees or ants, with individuals
becoming specialists a queen,
workers and soldiers.
When the colony is successful,
the population increases until the
numbers grow too large for the
site.
That is when some of the
workers molt. changing into two


leaving the colony in a swarm.
After a short flight they drop
to the ground and begin to
search for an appropriate new
site.
The females look for a quiet,
dark place with moisture near a
food source. The males follow
not far behind. Once they find a
place to their liking, a queen will
develop and breeding will start.
It's the termite's food source

What's behind


those numbers?

"I saw your column
about financial state-
ments a few weeks
ago," Clive said. "Quite
frankly, my friend, I
don't see how it helps
me. It seemed sort of
ivory tower, if you
don't mind my saying.
Business is slow, my Business
profits stink, and my Advisor
cash balance needs a
little nourishment. How Forrest Steele
am I going to deal with
all that by reading financial statements? I
need good, paying customers, not a bunch
of reports!"
My friend Clive and I had run out of
other topics while we wasted an afternoon
on the golf course. As we refreshed our-
selves in the lounge, the talk had turned to
the one thing I didn't want to talk about
on my day off ... his computer business.
"Clive," I sighed, "here you go again.
Not only are you picking on me on my
day off, but you're repeating yourself of a
few weeks ago. I actually think you're try-
ing to bait me into another argument."
"Well, I was getting a little sleepy, and I
thought your explanation might put me
under for a nice nap right here in my
chair."
"Clive, you are trying to bait me," I
said. But I'm not going to get into that
today. I think I'll just hum a few bars of a
country song I am thinking of."
"What's that?"
"'Life is Hard But it's Hardest When
You're Dumb!' Just kidding Clive, the
fact is you are right! Reading the finan-
cials won't solve your problems. They are
old news and they don't help you much
when you need to figure out what to do.
You need to get behind the numbers, as
the bankers say, and analyze a few

TUFFLEY
Continued from 11A
that creates problems for
humans, because termites eat
cellulose. That is the sub-
stance in plants that gives
them their structure. Termites
love it and eat it voraciously.
And termites are stealthy,
the swarm being the only
time they can be seen in the
open (that's how this owner
knew he had a problem).
You see termites, taken
one at a time, are extremely
fragile creatures. They are
tiny and blind; so pale, they
are almost translucent; so
soft, they smear in your
hand. Exposed to the light
they soon dry out and die.
Yet as vulnerable as they
are individually, termites are
among nature's greatest team
players, on a par with the
ancient Egyptians building
the pyramids only, of
course, the termites work in
reverse.
Now, subterranean termites
get their name because their
colonies are always under-
ground. They travel from it
to their dinner via intricate
highways that include travel
tubes made of dampened dirt
they build to cross the
exposed places they can't
eat.
These tubes, which from a
distance look like something


dripped and stained a wall,
are one of the only overt
signs of infestation, Clarke
said.
The only way to protect
against subterranean termites
is to place a barrier between
them and their food.
Clarke uses a pesticide
that is not a repellent. This
means the insect isn't aware
of it to avoid it.
The poison also takes time
to work, which means the
termite can eat it and live
long enough to take it back
and spread it in the colony.
A liquid spray has to be
applied completely around
the building, either where the
house meets the ground or
under the surrounding con-
crete. The key is to be thor-
ough, Clarke said, and not
leave any gaps.
This house had a raised
floor, but dirt had been grad-
ed up one side.
That made it easy for the
termites to enter, Clarke
warned. It's best to leave
wooden outer walls clear.
I helped drill the holes in
the cement along one side of
the house. We used a ham-
mer drill, which I'd never
handled before.
It is a heavy machine, with
a drill bit that pounds in and
out as it spins on its shaft. It
wasn't difficult because I
just had to place it on the
cement and apply pressure,

the machine doing the work.
Still, after drilling three
holes I was soaked through
with sweat.
The pesticide is injected
into the holes, using a nozzle
that sprays 360 degrees.
We had to spray the crawl


space too, although I wasn't
allowed to do any spraying.
I did get to go under the
house. It was while I was
there in the dark that Clarke
let me know finding snakes
is common.
I was surprised to learn


that until 2003, there were
no codes requiring termite
protection for new housing,
although lenders required
action by those seeking a
mortgage. Since 2003, how-
ever, a house site has to be
sprayed before the founda-
tion's concrete slab is laid.
That is because termites
are good at finding cracks in
concrete or the openings for
pipes and wiring remem-
ber they love to travel deep
in the dirt.
Just because you have a
cinderblock house, that does-
n't mean you get off easy,
Clarke said. Termites love
door frames, paneling and
such, and have been known
to eat furniture, wallpaper,
and cardboard, anything with
cellulose. He added that ter-
mites will eat cypress and
cedar too, they just aren't the
favorite meal.
Pest control is a job that
requires intelligence and
knowledge.
For one thing, there is a
lot of math, including figur-
ing out ratios and square
footage. Plus you need to
understand the chemistry of
pesticides. And of course,
you have to understand ento-
mology, how insects behave,
and what they all look like.
Clarke, for example, works
with a microscope.
And that is just what you
need to know to wage war on


termites. There is a whole
other list for protecting
lawns or working inside.
But there is one task that
is more fun than work.
It's operating the machine
used to spread fertilizer and
lawn treatments. Clarke let
me drive it.
Hydraulic, with a motor,
this gizmo has a platform at
the back and a bin with its
spreader at the front. In
between is a control panel
with levers to open and shut
the spreader and others to
engage the engine. There are
motorcycle-like handlebars
to steer. Each handlebar has
an extra grip that looks like a
brake, but is the throttle
instead the one on the
right to go forward, the one
on the left to go in reverse.
Instead of a brake, you just
let go of the throttle.
For a little machine, it gets
up to a fair rate of speed, but
is a challenge to turn. I had
to shift my weight to the left
when turning right and vice
versa. It handled as if it was
top heavy. I kept thinking I'd
roll over, but man, I didn't
want to stop.
Pest control is a job I'd
actually consider for a living.
There is variety and enough
challenges to keep it from
becoming boring.
But best of all I'd get to
work out my aggressions
shouting, "Die you bug, die."

things."
"Aha!" said Clive. "Here we go!
If you're about to give me to some
more of your preaching repackaged
to sound like another topic, wake
me when you're finished."
"OK, I see I have to get your
attention quickly. Don't have
enough good customers? How do
you know there are enough cus-
tomers out there to support you? Do
they need the packages you are sell-
ing, or do many really want some-
,thing else? Do you have competi-
'tors and how are they doing? What


have they got that you don't have?
How much repeat business are you
getting from prior customers, either
for new sales, upgrades or ongoing
service? How much should you be
getting? Do you lose customers, and
have you figured out why? Do you
have a regular contact program for
customers and prospects? Are you
asking them about their needs and
capturing the information in a data-
base?
Have you analyzed really ana-
lyzed your operating expenses to
eliminate costs?"
"Slow down," Clive moaned. "I
need to write some of this stuff
down."
:":No, you don't. I'm probably not


even asking the right questions. The
point is, you need to use your nog-
gin and figure out what drives your
sales, your margins and cash flow.
It's not enough to theorize. You
need to break it down into facts and
figures, and believe me, good
buddy, those facts and figures will
give you plenty of ideas about what
you should do.
"Are you getting a fair price for
what you do or are you giving it
away? Are you getting the best pos-
sible deal from your vendors? Have
you asked them for price breaks and
special payment terms? Are you let-
ting some of your customers get
away with paying you last after
they have'paid everyone Blse? You


can't possibly answer these ques-
tions off the top of your head, you
need to do some research."
"Just stop!" Clive bellowed, eyes
bulging, definitely awake now.
"You're making my head spin,
unless it's this beverage I've been
sipping on. I know you're right, I
just don't have the time to do that
kind of stuff."
"Well, Clive, that's up to you. To
me, that is abouttime management.
What's more important than making
sure you're headed in the right
direction, especially if you're less
than happy with the way things are
going?"
"I guess you're right," Clive
admitted.


Then he waffled: "But I do feel
like I've just listened to a sermon
and, while it sounds good, I'm not
sure if I'll be able to change.
Anyway, before you start feeling
too proud of yourself, why don't
you give me the 75 bucks you lost
out there on the golf course."
"You always have to have the last
word, don't you, Clive?" I said. I
don't think he noticed that I now
had the last word, so I gave him the
75 bucks, paid the bill, and we went
home.

. A year to remember for one veteran


It was iri the mid-spring of
1946 when I met and fell
madly in love with the girl
who would become my life-
long friend and companion.
We married that year and in
the year following, brought
into this world the first of
S three wonderful children.
It would be natural for me
to pick 1946 as the most
S*memorable, because it was
the beginning of a whole new
way of life for me ... and a
Beautiful one it has been ...
may I add.
@ Nevertheless, I must be
realistic and step back a year
Sor two prior to that. So much
h happened to me during those
six or seen mornith that
makes it impossible to forget.
.The Battle of the Bulge was
progressing as I crossed the
S"Atlantic aboard the world's
Largest ship at the time. It
was the Queen Elizabeth.
- --Yes, I was an Army private
S- heading for war. By June
-- 1945, I had been through
- .- seven different countries -
S .Scotland, Wales, England,
S- France, Germany, Belgium,
Luxembourg and Holland and
at one time been close
enough to see the Alps from
a distance.
Many friends I made and
many friends I lost and was
indeed fortunate to meet and
-.. talk with General George S.
S Patton at least half a dozen
- -times, although those conver-
S stations only lasted a minute
S- or so each. The first one was
S the chance meeting as I stood
S- -guard duty.
My first injury was
received when the Germans
Sr decided to detonate explo-
sives on the bridge I was on

(without first asking me to
get off ... Ha ha). Then I had
the misfortune of being
wounded in another incident
by a hand grenade thrown
toward us while we were
relieving prisoners we had
taken of their weapons.
Ernie Pyle, the [F.imnius
news repoi er, % as jut a few
feet away from me at the
time and was not hurt. My
buddy Salazar had pushed
him down and flopped on top
of him to protect him from
that grenade and got himself
killed instead. That incident
directed a Purple Heart my
way. Salazar's was sent to his
family in Texas.
The day earlier, I got
involved in a skirmish that
earned me the Bronze Star,
which I received at Fort
Meade, Md., after I returned
to the station.
Who can forget entering
New York Harbor as horns
blared in deafening sounds.
The ship I was aboard was'
contributing to the clamor of
the occasion. We were the
first GIs to return from that
dreadful war. The 95th
Infantry Division was coming
home, hoping to go on leave
before venturing to the
Pacific Theater of War.
How that ship, the U.S.S.


General Blatchford, made it
through the docks, I'll never
know. Small craft by the hun-
dreds steamed back and
forth, creating white water
washes throughout the harbor
and fire boats. Spewing water
from their nozzles in all
directions amidst the over-
whelming noise.
After landing, we could
hardly make it to the trucks.
People crammed the docks
like sardines ... cheering and
screaming. Within myself a
feeling of exhilaration I
would never again experi-
ence. The surface of my skin
was a mass of goose pimples
and tears flowed from my
eyes.
Girls rushed onto the dock
with the intention of hugging
and kissing every G.I. they
could embrace. What an ova-
tion that was! I had a feeling
of pride, never before and
never would again ... not like
that, anyway.
The steady stream of dis-
embarking soldiers seemed
never to end. As soon as one
truck was loaded and pulling
out, another would immedi-
ately take its place. This kept
up for hours. It was on the
23rd of June, 1945.
I never did venture to the
Pacific. While waiting for re-
assignment, I did a short tour
of Fort Dix, N.J., and during
that time, I secured a pass to
New York. When arriving in
Manhattan, I made a last
minute decision to get off at
Times Square and take in a
show. As I ascended the steps
leading out of the subway, I
could hear the roar of large
crowds of people out there

Babies at 60 (or even 49)?


One of the things I've been thinking
about today is the story of Frieda
SBirnbaum. Mrs. Birnbaum is 60 years
old and the proud mother of five a
Daughter (age 29), and four sons ages
33, 6 and twins she just gave birth to.,
Nothing in the above paragraph is a
typo. Birnbaum, at the age of 60, gave
birth to twins. She is probably the oldest
woman in the United States to do so.
SHowever, according to a news report I
read, she missed oldest new mom in the
world by about seven years.
I saw a picture of Mrs. Birnbaum and
I have to admit that she doesn't look her
stated age. True, she couldn't pass for
20, but if I passed her on the street,
based on the picture I'd figure she was
around my age 49.

worries that his future children will miss
out on Grandma.
As I said, this story has been running
around my brain for a bit today. Let's
see if I can explain why the situation
causes me to furrow my brow.
First, I will admit that I love and
adore babies. I love playing with them,
talking to them, coaxing smiles from
them. I happily borrow other people's
babies and flirt with them shamelessly.
But at 49, would I want to go through
another pregnancy to have one of my
own?
Um, no.
For one thing, I can't. Doctors at one
point removed certain internal portions
of my anatomy, which means that what-
ever else might happen to me health-
wise, pregnancy isn't one scenario.
(Actually, I'm still wrapping my mind
around the fact that a 60-year-old
woman could get pregnant is she still
waiting for the joys of menopause?)
But let's assume for the moment I
could get pregnant. Would I want to, at
my age, endure the physical changes the

body undergoes to house that life?
Some women claim they've never felt
better than when they were pregnant.
Yeah for them. I am not one of those
women. I'm not saying pregnancy had
me feeling at my worst trust me, there
are worse feelings than carrying around
a punching beach ball inside you but
it wasn't a time of physical comfort.
Then I have to consider the fact that
this experience doesn't end with the
pregnancy and birth. You have to take

care of these adorable rug rats (how do I
know Mrs. Birnbaum's babies are
adorable? They're babies. It's a given).
You have to feed them and change them
and chase them when they discover the
joys of locomotion and change them and
potty train them ... well, you get the
idea.
It sounds like a lot to do at 60. It
sounds like a lot to do at 49, to be hon-
est.
But I wish Mrs. Birnbaum well. If she
can handle it, more power to her. Raise
them well, ma'am. And if a 49-year-old,
short-brown-haired woman comes up to
the carriage and shamelessly flirts with
them, I'm harmless. Really.

ately whipped me up to their shoulders and
carried me all over the place cheering and
screaming.
Then the girls did it again! Just like before!
All that hugging and kissing! I was dumb
struck with amazement and I'm sure it
showed. "Haven't you heard?" they were say-
ing, "President Truman announced that we
dropped the Atomic bomb from a B-29 on
Hiroshima. It's only a matter of days now."
I never heard of an Atomic bomb or of a B-
29 either, but I was having one hell of a good

time ... and guess what? I never did get to see
that show.
Well after that, rather than leave the serv-
ice, I re-enlisted and the following year was
when I met Dottie. At the time, I was still
having problems from my wounds and was in
the Army hospital when she showed. I could
not get over her and not long after that we
got married. I still love her and always will.
And I know that she's thinking the same as I
am right now. It's only a few weeks after
writing this article that we will be celebrating
our 61st wedding anniversary.

Veterans Services Office receives donations

Last year's campers took a relaxing break in the pool at the Outdoor Theatre property.


Outdoor Drama campers will


learn how to become producers


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID One of the theater disci-
plines being featured this summer at the,
Florida Outdoor Drama Summer Camp will be
skills involved in producing events.
Chris Parsons, camp director and artistic
consultant for Florida Heartland Heritage
Foundation, announced at a camp faculty
meeting Friday that two days of the two-week
camp scheduled for June 18-29 will be spent
teaching the students how to take an idea and
carry it through to production.
"These skills will be an asset to every stu-
dent," Parsons said, "as they go through life,
whether or not they go into theatre as a pro-
fession." He continued to explain that these
abilities are the same ones used when planning
an event for your church, civic club, home
association, arts organizations or school proj-
ects.
"During the summer camp," Parsons said,
"we will let the students plan the re-enact-
ments of spooky Florida history events, which
we will use during the first Florida Fright
Nights scheduled for October of this year at
the drama site."


Other theatre disciplines that will be fea-
tured during the camp are singing, acting,
clowning, dancing and many other on-stage
and back-stage opportunities.
"These will be taught through the
'American Idol' type format during the camp
by our professional faculty members," Parsons
said.
On the final night of camp at 7 p.m. Friday,
June 29, the students will perform for parents
and friends in the University Center auditori-
um at the Avon Park campus of South Florida
Community College. The community is invit-
ed for this free performance.
Registration for the drama summer camp is
now open for students of middle, high school
and college age.
Camp tuition is $245 for the two weeks,
which includes classes, T-shirt, two field trips
to the drama site, two pool parties with pizza
and a hot dog roast and snacks. Students will
brown bag the other eight lunches.
For information, call Debbie Corder, camp
coordinator at the outdoor drama office at 465-
3994 or-write Florida Outdoor Drama, 950
County Road 29, Lake Placid, FL 33852.

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop


Remember

what we have

in common

I challenged myself to
do some digging to recall
the history and original
meaning of Memorial
Day. Before I could
observe it correctly, I
needed to know a few
facts.
My husband, Ken,
fondly recalls the
Memorial Day parades
that marched past his
home in Clifton, N.J.,
every year. But such trib-
utes aren't commonplace.
Memorial Day was
originally proclaimed on
May 5, 1868, and
observed on May 30,
1868, with flowers being
placed on the graves of
Union and Confederate
soldiers at Arlington
National Cemetery.
After World War I, the
holiday changed from
honoring only Civil War
soldiers to honoring all
Americans who died
fighting in any war. In
time, the May 30 day
was changed to the last
Monday of May to pro-
vide a long weekend.
Perhaps, that is when
we began to lose the true
meaning. Somehow,
amidst the Memorial Day
Weekend sales, barbe-
cues and such, we are
easily distracted from the
original intent: an obser-
vance that honors and
remembers those who
have given their all in
service to their country.
It's so easy for things
to divide us. But, this is
something that should
unite us honor and
respect for our war dead.
The heroes who didn't
live to have a long week-
end with family and
friends.
We are experiencing
our own time of war
where many we know
and love have fallen on
foreign soil to protect
our homeland. It's a
good time to unite in
remembering, respecting
and honoring them; in
counting our blessings
rather than taking them
for granted.
I believe it is that way
with our faith in God, as
well.
When we have come
through a crisis we are
so fervent in remember-
ing all God has done to
see us through. We honor
and praise him for a
time.
Then we are distracted
by the things of this
world not wanting to
be cheated of cramming
in every pleasure we can.
God is pushed aside.
We can re-educate our-
selves by opening our
Bibles and remembering
that the eternal things,
not the temporal, are
what's really important
in life. As we unite to
honor God on a Sunday
morning, we then need to
bring that love and
respect into every aspect
of our lives.

Couple rekindles Sebring High romance 52 years later


By PATRICIA C. POND
News Sun Correspondent
SEBRING
bring High School gradu-
ates Joan Thomas Johnson
and William "Billy"
Cheshire are making wed-
ding plans. They dated for three
years at SHS and shared many of the
same friends. He played football and
basketball, she acted in school plays
and sang in the chorus. In their sen-
ior year, the popular couple shared a
place of honor in the homecoming
court.
They both graduated in the class of
1955 and didn't see each other again
for 52 years.
"After we graduated, our lives just
kind of split," Johnson said in a
recent telephone interview from
Albuquerque, N.M. "I went to Florida
State University in Tallahassee. Billy
stayed in Sebring and worked for
about a year, then joined the Air
Force."
After graduating from FSU,
Johnson met and married her hus-
band, Max Johnson, living first in
Georgia and then in Vincent, Ala.,
until his death in 2006. She has one
son, Jim, and seven grandchildren.
When he joined the Air Force,
Cheshire's path led west. After com-
pleting basic training in Texas, he
was stationed at Kirkland Air Force
Base in Albuquerque. When he left
the Air Force, he knew he never
wanted to leave New Mexico.
He married a local girl and worked
for 10 years in the service department
at Southern Union Gas Company. He
then started his own business in
building maintenance, and owned and
managed rental units. Cheshire has
one daughter, two sons and nine
grandchildren. He has been a widow-
er for more than nine years.
Although both have been to class
reunions in Sebring, their paths never
crossed.
Sebring resident Shirley Whitcomb
has stayed in contact with all of her
classmates over the years, keeping
their address and phone records up to
date in order to organize class
reunions.
When it came time to plan the 50th
class reunion, Whitcomb began mak-
ing the calls that would lead to join-
ing these two divergent lives.
She remembers that when she


called Cheshire, he said he wasn't
coming, "but he asked if Joan was
going to be there. I told him she
couldn't come because her husband
was very ill. He asked for her phone
number and I gave it to him."
"We keep in touch, we all care
about one another. That's rare, even
for people from our era," Whitcomb
said.
When Whitcomb later learned that
Johnson's husband had passed away,
she called Cheshire and told him.
"I said, 'Why don't you give her a
call?'"
Cheshire takes up the story by
phone from Albuquerque.
"I waited what I thought was a
decent interval and then called her in
December. We began talking every
day over a period of several months.
We talked as much as six or eight
hours at a time. We had so much to
catch up on.
"I always liked her better than any
other girl in high school, but I didn't


realize we were so compatible."
In March, he told Johnson he
thought they really should get togeth-
er, and she agreed. He sent her a tick-
et and she sent him a recent photo of
herself.
"I flew to Albuquerque on March
14. I have never been out west, and
when I got to the airport, I had but-
terflies in my stomach," Johnson
remembered.
"I had told him what I would be
wearing, but I had no idea of what he
looked like. I was looking around the
airport, wondering how he would find
me when someone said, 'Joan,' and
there he was next to me. He's still got
those big brown eyes, the same per-
sonality.
"He took my hand and the butter-
flies just melted away."
Leaving the terminal, Cheshire said
he was thinking "she looked good to
me, but I needed to kiss her to be
absolutely sure this would work out.
So in the car I reached over and


kissed her, and then I knew for sure."
One of the first things they did was
to call Shirley Whitcomb and thank
her for acting as matchmaker.
"They told me that if it wasn't for
me, this would never have hap-
pened," Whitcomb said. "The next
day I received a bouquet of flowers
with a note saying, 'Thanks for
everything, Bill and Joan.'"
The couple spent the next three
weeks reconnecting, meeting with
Cheshire's family, and just having a
good time.
They spent a week in Denver with
Cheshirei's-daughter Wendy and her
family.
"Wendy fell in love with her just
like I did," Cheshire said.
He emphasized that having the
approval and support of all their fam-
ily members is very important to both
of them. They said that all of their
children are happy.for them and have
told them they deserve this.
During her visit, Cheshire took
Johnson to several areas surrounding
Albuquerque to show her the beauti-
ful countryside.
"She is excited about seeing the
mountains," Cheshire said. "She had
never been in snow before. We are
going to cover the whole state see
all the mountains," he added enthusi-
astically.
Quiet evenings at home brought
another surprise for Johnson.
"He's still got all the music from
the 1950's on CDs. We danced at
home to all the songs we danced to at
Teen Town in Sebring. We have so
much in common now. Both of us are
still in awe over this whole thing. We
are just totally in love."
She said that at the end of the three
weeks, "we knew it was a done deal.
We knew we would get married."
Johnson returned to Alabama,
packed up her household furnishings,
put her house in the hands of a real-
tor and moved permanently to
Albuquerque the first week of May.
The couple has been house hunting
since she returned and just found a
house that suits them both, with plen-
ty of room for visiting children and
grandchildren.
"We plan to have a small wedding
ceremony in the new house this sum-
mer, and then it will truly be our
home," Johnson said.


Some simple design tips to help you create a flawless interior


There are very simple steps you
can follow in order to furnish any
room in your home. The task can
seem daunting at first, but if you
decide to tackle the job yourself, I
can help you make it a bit easier.
First of all, make a list of all the
furniture and accessories that you
would like to purchase. If you can't
finish the project all-at once, set pri-
orities. Thinking about the function
of the room will help. Assess the
pieces that you have. Are there any
that may work into a new plan, or are
they old, worn and out-dated? Don't
compromise. You'll be sorry in the '..


long run. It is better to fol- .
low your plan and wait for :.
the pieces you want, if your
budget won't allow for you
to purchase things all at
once. Don't stress over that.
I have never had a client
that was sorry for waiting to
purchase a wonderful piece TI
that they knew was just per- Se
feet for their home. Dorrl
Think of what pieces are
essential for your comfort and for the
function of your room. Draw a floor
plan of your room noting the win-
dows, doors, fireplace or any other


rac
cr
vy C


architectural features. You
can buy graph paper that
has squares equaling one-
quarter inch. You can draw
your plan to scale using
one-quarter inch equals one
foot. Just try. It is really
easy!
de Also, measure any furni-
ets ture you want to incorporate
'hristy that is existing. It is always
nice to use those pieces if
they are meaningful or are ones that
you love and have collected through
the years.
Arrange your furniture to take


advantage of a focal point, such as a
lovely lakeside view, beautiful golf
course, a fireplace or, of course, there
is always the television. A larger
room may allow for two areas of
seating, creating many nice opportu-
nities for conversation with your fam-
ily and guests.
My advice is to purchase the larger
pieces of furniture first and to always
travel with your floorplan and the
colors you would like to incorporate.
If you happen upon something won-
derful, you'll know whether it will

It makes good sense to use sensors for your lawn sprinklers


At this time, all of us are going
through the challenge of dealing
with water restrictions. We know
that we can only water at certain
times of the week and only for a
given amount of time. So, we are
all doing our part to conserve our
precious water, but I have another
suggestion rain sensors for your
irrigation system! Why water when
it's raining? A rain sensor is a
device designed to prevent an auto-
matic irrigation or sprinkler system
from turning on during and after a
rain storm.
These simple devices are avail-
able in several designs, and are gen-
erally wired to an irrigation system
controller, although wireless sensors
are also on the market. Rain sensors
are simple, economical and useful
tools for preventing irrigation that
would be wasteful.
Rain sensors are a great idea for


many reasons. They let your sprin-
klers run only when needed, which
conserves water, saves money and
protects lawns from the effects of
over watering. In addition, they
extend irrigation system life by
automatically measuring precipita-
tion and keeping irrigation systems
from watering in rainy conditions.
Rain sensors override a scheduled
irrigation when a water collection
cup or sensor on the shutoff device
detects water. When the collected
rainwater has evaporated from the
device, scheduled irrigations
resume.
Let's go over some of the bene-
fits of rain sensors again:
Most importantly, they save
water.
They save you money by
reducing your utility bills.
They reduce the wear and tear
on your irrigation system, because


News
From The
Watershed

it only comes on
when needed.
They protect
your lawn and
plants from over
watering.
You can pur-
chase rain sen-
sors at your local
hardware store
and they are rela-
tively inexpen-
sive. You will
most likely make
up the expense


within the first few months by
reducing your utility bill costs, so it
would seem that these sensors are a
win-win solution for our water con-
servation needs.
Listed below are some additional
ways to conserve water:
Check your irrigation system
regularly. One broken sprinkler


head could use up to 225 gallons
per 15-minute cycle.
Install water-saving shower
heads or flow restrictors.
Check for leaky faucets and
toilets and repair as needed.
Wash full loads of laundry. A
washing machine can use 40 or
more gallons of water per load.
Make sure your dishwasher
loads are full. Dishwashers use
about 15 gallons per run.
And as far as the water restric-
tions go, let's just to go over the
rules again: If your house number
ends in a 0 or 1 you may water on
Monday, if it ends with 2 or 3
Tuesday is your day, 4 or 5 is
Wednesday watering, 6 and 7
allows you to water Thursday and
finally if your house number ends
in 8 or 9 you can water on Friday.
Properties less than two acres can
water only during the hours


between 6 p.m. and 8 a.m.
Properties over two acres can water
only between the hours of 4 p.m.
and 10 a.m. These rules apply to all
residences within the unincorporat-
ed Highlands County using the
water resources, whether from pub-
lic or privately owned water utility
systems, private wells or private
connections with surface water bod-
ies.
Hopefully, you are now motivat-
ed to install rain sensors on your
irrigation system as well as con-
serve in other ways. You will be
doing the right thing and helping to
conserve this important resource.

Conservation Service specialist with

HLT presenting 'My Fair Lady'


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Box
Office at Highlands Little
Theatre is open for Director
Frank Oberhausen's "My Fair
Lady" by Frederick Lowe and
Alan Jay Lerner.
The crew has added another
Wednesday evening non-din-
ner show on June 6. The doors
open at 7 p.m. and the show
starts at 8 p.m.
This wonderful musical
comedy is about a flower ven-
dor, Eliza Doolittle (Tiffani
Elliott), and a stuffy gram-
marian, Henry Higgins (Bill
Farmer), who takes the dirty
waif home to turn her into a
proper lady. Colonel
Pickering (Pete Pollard) finds
this a challenge he can't pass
up and makes a wager with
Higgins that it can't be done.
After several weeks of
training, Higgins and
Pickering decide that it is
time to test Eliza by taking
her to Mrs. Higgins' (Kristin
Taylor) exclusive box on
opening day of horse racing at
Ascott.
Freddy Eynsford-Hill
(Chris Hayes) falls in love
with Liza and sings the beau-
tiful love song "On the Street
Where You Live." Alfred P.
Doolittle (Art Harriman),
Eliza's father, schemes
against Henry Higgins and
finds himself bound for matri-
mony when his lady friend
learns of his good fortune,
and his blokes, Jamie (Ken
Cross) and Harry (James
Simmons), take him out on
the town the night before the
ceremony.
Memorable numbers
include "I'm Getting Married
In The Morning," "Wouldn't
It Be Loverly," "I Could
Have Danced All Night,"
"I've Grown Accustomed To
Her Face," and many more.
The cast is rounded out by
Mrs. Pearce (Joyce
Uebelhart); maids in the
Higgins household (Gloria
Coffey. Roe Marie Tippins-
Beringer and Rita
Krishnadas); Prof. Zoltan
Karpathy (Allan Grossman).
A chorale ensemble of 19
fleshes out the crowd scenes.
Mark Elliott is assistant


director and Holly Elliott is
producer. Choreography is
being done by Kathy McNeill
and Nicole Brand, costume
design by HLT veteran Helen
Curcio, music director is
Chris Hayes, and stage man-
ager is Janet Waldron.
Highlands Little Theatre is


at 356 W. Center St., Sebring.
For tickets call the box office
at 382-2525, through June
24, Monday through
Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.,
and Tuesdays from 6-8 p.m.
Tickets may also be pur-

SECRETS
Continued from 1B
work into your plan or not. You will
save time and money by only selecting
those pieces you know will be just right
used in your interior.
Try to choose three colors to incorpo-
rate into your room. You may favor a
pastel, bold or neutral palette. Use
something in the room as your guide.
Look at a painting you may want to use,
or do you have a rug, sofa, or particular
fabric in mind? Work around that.
Choose the colors that enhance that
piece and then they will all flow togeth-
er.
The accessories are so important -
the finishing touch! Having beautiful
accessories in your home is like adding
gorgeous landscaping to your yard sur-
rounding your home. Think about how
much the landscaping changes the look
of a home. It is practically immeasura-


ble. Accessories do the same for the
inside of your home.
When accessorizing, vary the height
of the objects you use and put items
together in a cluster. It is pleasing to the
eye to use uneven numbers of things. I
like to use three pillows on a sofa, three
candlesticks on a coffee table, or three
boxes on a console table. Try this idea.
Don't forget to vary the height of your
items. Three candlesticks on a coffee
table that are all the same height would
look out of place.

Gallery, 1989 Lakeview
Drive, will be having their
monthly reception for the
artist of the month. Kenny
Long is a life-long resident of
Avon Park and owner of
Long's Air Conditioning, but
air conditioning is not the
only thing he does well. He is
also a master wood carver.
He and his wife Freda lost
their 4-year-old son, Kenny
Jr., in 1971. A friend had
given them a card with a
cherub flying through a heart
and he decided to see if he
could reproduce the cherub in
wood. That first cherub is
part of one of four Bible


PAUSE
Continued from 1B
There is a movement to
restore the original meaning
back to Memorial Day by
reestablishing the original
day of remembrance. As a
nation, our collective heart
has these losses in common.
Perhaps, a movement that
restores God to his rightful


stands created in memory of
their son. Everything he has
craved since has been in
honor of little Kenny Jr. The
cradle is one of the items on
display at the Yellow House
Gallery.
Miss Ruby's Den, 619
North Pine Street, is worth
the short trek off the beaten
path. There will be light
refreshments and spring spe-
cials throughout the gallery.
On-site parking is available.
Wild Artist Jewelry, 125
North Ridgewood, is going
all out with their "looks like"
Emily Ray Swarovski and
gemstone silver and gold
jewelry. Designers Ray and
Abbott will be on hand to
take custom orders and show
finished pieces. Since they


manufacture, you pay near
wholesale for their signed
creations.
Other artists on display
include local photography by
David Schuknecht, signed
prints by Madeline Tuttle,
and several of Janet King's
paintings. There is also a
large selection of hand carved


masks and animal sculptures
from Asia.
Photography by Mike at
112 North Ridgewood Drive
will be offering light refresh-
ments and a new photo exhib-
it for visitors to view.

News-Sun photos by DAN HOEHNE
Above: Tallahassee-Godby shortstop Kevin Vasquez, playing for the North team, applies the tag to Parkland Douglas' Joey Hage of the
South team during the opening game of the 29th Annual FACA All-Star Classic. Hage would be called safe, but the North team downed the
South, 4-2. Below: Sebring's Charlie Peck steps on home plate as part of a six-run, third-inning barrage by the East team in Saturday's
game against the South. Peck would collect two hits, a walk and score twice in the East's 16-5 win.

Hit Parade


Bats come to life after

pitching rules day one

By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne @newssun.comn
SEBRING -Whereas pit-hing ruled the
day Friday, the bats came to life in the open-
ing game of the second day of the FACA
All-Star Classic Saturday.
And while Sebring's trio of players went
hitless Friday, they were right in the thick of
the hitting barrage that the East team laid
down on the South team pitchers.
Miami Palmetto right-hander Logan
East Billbraugh opposed the
East's Craig Gullickson, of
16 West Palm Beach Cardinal
SNewman and both worked
South two scoreless innings as the
pitching dominance of the
day before looked like it
would be in effect again.
But the third inning would
break open the hit-parade with Blue Streak
Charlie Peck getting it started.
With one out, Peck ripped a single
through the right side and moved to second
when Lake Worth's Billy Harvey reached on
an error.
A.J. Starkey of Merritt Island then
walked to load the bases when, with two

Of course, I forgot two old

First, that good pitching
always beats good hitting
and, second, that you should

75th running of
historic 24-hour
race starts June 16
Special to the News-Sun
Even after two straight
years of competing at the 24
Hours of Le Mans, the thrill
and anticipation of the
world's greatest motor race
hasn't dwindled for Seth
Neiman, driver and principal
for Flying Lizard Motor-
sports.
"Actually I think the sense
of aura and the challenge of
the event have only
increased," he said.
Neiman will make his third
start at Le Mans behind the
wheel of a Flying Lizard
Porsche with Jorg
Bergmeister and Johannes van
Overbeek.
The team finished third
during its Le Mans debut in
2005 and fourth in class last
year.
"Of course we have some
familiarity now, and that also
means we have parts we dread
and that have lost their novel-

"But the difficulties of win-

celebrated and sought after
are now crystal clear.
"What it takes to mount a
strong race, stay sharp, deal
with all the complexity they
have only served to heighten
the sense that this is a moun-
tain worth climbing."

J.C. Shoop, above, connects for a resounding RBI double in
the seventh inning of the East's 16-5 rout of the South
Saturday. A few batters later, Chaz Abeln, below, also con-
nected for a double to left, this one for three RBI, to help
build the East lead.


FACA
Continued from 1D

o tt, Deland's Michael Main
singled home Peck, Evan
Chambers of Lakeland
brought .Harvey home with a
walk and Orlando Bloom's
Ryan Matthews cleared the
bases with a three-run double.
Matthews then came
around on a single from Tim
Roberson and the East was
out to a 6-0 lead.
The East pitchers held the
potent South lineup scoreless
through six innings, while the
offense was adding six more
runs.
A solo home run to right off
the bat of Matthews made it
7-0 after five, and another
five runs in the sixth padded
the lead.
Port St. Lucie's Mike
McGee began the sixth with a
single, and with one out Peck
drew.a walk.
Wauchula's Will Krause
then single to load the bases
and one out later Sebring's
Chaz-Abeln blasted a double
to the left field wall to bring
in three runs.
Main and Chambers added
RBI singles to finish the
inning with the East leading
12-0.
The South got on the board
in the seventh, notching two
runs on RBI singles from
Kilby Perdomo of Miami
Southridge and Joel Carranza
of Pembroke Pines Flanagan.
But the East got those two
runs back and added two more
in its half of the seventh with
Blue Streak J.C. Shoop dou-
bling home Roberson, Peck
bringing McGee and Shoop
home with a single to left and
Peck eventually scoring on a
groundout.
The South team would add
two more runs in the eighth
and one more in the tenth, but
the game had long since been
decided.


"I'm tired," Shoop said.
"But it feels good. I hadn't
been hitting anything, so it
felt good to finally get some-
thing."
Peck agreed that after
Friday's game, it was gratify-
ing to get into the hit column.
"You know you belong
here," he said. "But to be able
to get the hits, that really
makes you feel like you
should be here."
Sebring head coach Hoppy
Rewis, working as an assis-
tant for the East team, liked
what he saw his former
charges do.
"Yeah, they struck out a
bunch yesterday (Friday), but
then everybody's been strik-
ing out a lot," he said. "But
they're good players and it
was nice to see them get
theirs."

Opening day arms race
West 9, East 2
Game two of the 29th All-
Star Classic saw much of the
same dominant pitching as the
opener, although the score
might not indicate as such.
Two much-heralded hurlers
took the mound to start the
contest, Nevin Griffith of
Tampa-Middleton for the
West and flame-throwing
Michael Main of Deland for
the East.
But Main was having some
control problems early, and a
couple of misplays in the field
didn't help his cause.
After a scratch run for the
West in the first, Main had
location trouble in the second,
hitting a batter and walking
one before a potential double-
play ground ball couldn't be
handled by Hardee's Will
Krause.
Estero's John Tolisano soon
found a fastball he liked and
unloaded it over the right-
field fence for a grand slam.
Two more runs were added
to the total in the fourth, on a
single, three walks, and a


fielder's choice.
The East managed to get on
the board in the seventh, with
Lakeland's Evan Chambers
singling and scoring on a dou-,*
ble by Tim Roberson (West
Palm Beach Central) and
again in the ninth, this time,
like much of the scoring on
the day without a hit.
Main, Bishop Moore's
Spencer Theisen and Krause
each walked to load the bases
and Chambers was able to
beat out a potential dou
play to bring Main in wit
final run of the day. Y
The game wasn't too pros-
perous, in stats, for theI
Sebring trio of J.C. Shool
Chaz Abeln and Charlie Pec
- as among them they were
unable to connect for a hit -
except for a possible littler
payback plunk on the le, t.A
Abeln from Jesuit pitcher
Kevin Quackenbush, whom
the Streaks sent to defeat in
the state regional final.
"I think he was getting back
at us a little," Abeln said with
a grin.
But the overall gravity of
the moment wasn't lost on
them.
"It's tough," Peck said. "All
these pitchers have great stuff.
I had a good at bat, fouled a
few off but I'm mad at
myself, I should have been
able to make better contact."
Abeln agreed to the talent
level, as well as to knowing
what being here meant.
"I look at these guys and
there's so much talent here,"
he said. "But we're here, so
that must mean something.
And even though I didn't have
a great day, I know I can play
with them and it shows the.
level of what I'll be playing
against from here on in."

North 4, South 2
The opening game of -the
FACA All-Star Classic saw a
pitchers duel in the ten-inning
event, as a slew of top-notch
pitchers impressed the radar-


at-the-ready scouts.
The North team was a bit
more opportunistic, however,
and its' hurlers were just a tad
more effective in downing the
South squad, 4-2.
The small ball got rolling in
the second when the North
scratched for the games' first
run.
Jiwan James, of Williston,
reached after getting hit by an
Iden Nazario (Miami
Southridge) pitch.
James moved to second on
a walk, stole third and then
came in to score when the
throw to nab him sailed into
left field.
A bases-loaded, fielder's
choice groundout by
Tallahassee-Lincoln's Ty
Buckley scored the North's
second run in the fifth, and a
double steal later that inning
produced a 3-0 lead with a
grand total of one hit through
five innings.
Tallahasee-Godby's Kevin
Vasquez and Davie-Novoa's
Mike Hartley bumped that hit
total to three, with two singles
in the sixth, putting runners
on first and third where
Vasquez was able to score on
Jacsonville-Eagle's View's
Josh Adams sacrifice fly.
The North pitchers, mean-
while, were shutting down a
potent South lineup, as the
combination of Jimmy Nelson
(Niceville), Brett Hammaker
(Tallahassee-Godby) and
Tommy Isaacs (Jacksonville-
Bolles) held it scoreless
through nine innings.
All-Americafi catcher
Danny Rams (Miami-Gulliver
Prep) finally broke through
for the South, with a two-run
home run in the tenth to pro-
vide for the final score.

The final game of the 29th
Annual FACA All-Star
Classic was not complete by
press time.
The final result will run in
the Wednesday, May 30, edi-
tion of the News-Sun

talent of those players select-
ed to play in this 29th annual
FACA All-Star Classic.
It's just that, I should have
realized the first adage men-
tioned would be especially
appropriate here.
Even major league all-star
games, where the hitters are
used to facing top-notch
pitching on a semi-regular
basis, often turn out to be
low-scoring affairs.
These hitters, on their vari-
ous high school teams, might
get a chance to face a top-of-
the-rotation pitcher once, oh,
I don't know, in a season.
Consider, of the hundreds
of high schools in the state,
there are somewhere in the
neighborhood of 20-30 pitch-
ers spread amongst the four
teams.
Let's just say, for simple
mathematics' sake and a like-
ly underestimate, that there
are 300 high schools in
Florida and that there are the
30 top pitchers in the state
showing their wares at
Firemen's Field this week-
end.
That means, if you section
off ten teams, you're picking
one pitcher, the one and only
best pitcher among those ten
schools.
Seems like pretty high
falutin stuff.
And that's what these
pitchers have high-falutin
stuff.
'A 90 mile-per-hour slider,
a mid-to-upper-90s fastball,
two-foot breaking curves and
change-ups that have hitters


jumping out of their socks
they're so far ahead of them.
"It's all the aces," Chaz
Abeln said during Thursday's
warm-up batting session.
"You might face that once in
a season."
Here that's what they were
seeing each and every inning.
And so it shouldn't have
been a surprise that the North
squad, while scoring 4 runs
in its opening game win
against the south team, had
just one hit up on the board
alongside the four on the
scoreboard.
Sure, these pitchers might
struggle with their control -
hit a batter, walk a couple,
not hold them on as well and
thus allow for odd and awk-
ward scores but they're still
awfully hard to hit.
Even the highly touted All-


American Danny Rams, of
Miami-Gulliver Prep, didn't
look all that impressive at the
plate, until a two-run home
run in the final inning gave
the South team its only two
runs.
The Sebring trio of Abeln,
Charlie Peck and J.C. Shoop
weren't as impressive as
they'd like to have been
either but then the starting
pitcher they faced, Nevin
Griffith of Tampa-Middleton,
was being looked at as a
first-round draft pick by the
scouts in attendance.
Granted, East starter
Michael Main of Deland, he
of the dazzling heat and high
draft pick likelihood, strug-
gled with his control early
and had to come in to the hit-
ters, resulting in a grand slam
from tree-trunk forearmed


Johni Tolisano of Estero but
it was obvious to see all
these starters lad dazzling
stuff.
And the drop-off from the
starters wasn't much, if at all,
as all variety of hurlers with
sub-2 and some sub-1 ERA's
were tossing up all variety of
nasty stuff.
It's not as if I'm not enter-
tained by a few-hit, low-scor-
ing, effectively pitched game..
A 1-0 Greg Maddux vs.
Dontrelle Willis pitch-fest
can make for a riveting after-
noon of viewing.
I just wasn't assuming it
would happen here, at this
all-star game.
And we all know how that
turned out.

Despite the resounding bats of Saturday, and a nine-run
game Friday, pitching was the dominant attraction at the
FACA All-Star Classic, with hurlers such as Deland's Michael
Main, above, a mid-90's flame thrower and Nevin
Griffith, above left, of Tampa-Middleton both with high draft
projections.
