Long turns family tragedy into artistic inspiration


This crown was
carved by Kenny
Long and will sit
atop the top of a
throne he is
carving for his
wife, Frieda.

SEBRING The rich
rococo designs rendered
by master carver Kenny
S Long could grace an 18th
century cathedral or a royal
palace ,But Long only creates
furniture and other art objects
for personal enjoyment, not for
commercial use.
"I don't make anything for
Anyone else but family," he said
during a reception last week for


a rare public exhibit of his work.
Held at the Highlands Art
League's Yellow House Gallery iii
Sebring, the display features a
large cradle, an intricate crown
more than two feet high, a panel
from a throne he is currently carv-
ing for his wife Frieda, and one of
the 12 massive dining room chairs
he carved over a period of seven
years that are used in the Longs'
Avon Park home.
Every piece has a story. Long
carved and built a cradle for each
of his two grown daughters when


he learned he was going to become
a grandfather.
"When Kari Jane told us she was
expecting, I had only eight months
to build and carve the first cradle,"
he remembers. "I knew the baby
would have to stay in it for at least
six months, so I made it big
enough to safely hold an older
baby."
The cradle, which is almost as
large as the standard crib, has
ingenious legs that lock down to
prevent an active older baby from
turning the cradle into a gym. All


three of Kari Jane's children have
used the cradle, and when daughter
LaDawn announced that she was
expecting, Long created another
beautiful cradle for her.
Although Long recalls working
with wood since he was about 5
years old, he first attempted carv-
ing in 1985. He and Frieda lost
their 4-year-old son, Little Kenny
Jr., in 1971. A friend had given
them a card with a cherub flying
through a heart and he decided to
try reproducing the cherub in

Drowning

victim mav

have had

tuberculosis
Those involved in
rescue attempt could
have been exposed
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK -
Tuberculosis has had a lot
of attention in recent days
as Atlanta attorney
Andrew Speaker remains
under federal quarantine
-for the disease. Now,
reports have come to light
'" that a number of Ayon
Park firefighters have
been tested for the disease.
There is concern that
they and possibly other
safety service workers
may have been exposed to
TB while assisting a vic-
tim in a May 6 drowning
incident at Lake Verona.
A man identified as Jose
Alfredo Santizo-Morales
died while swimming it
the Donaldson Park
Beach. Reportedly,
Morales was swimming
outside the designated
swimming area when he
went under. The 23-year-
old man's body was found
about 30 feet from shore in
10-12 feet of water.
In fact, an Avon Park
police officer and a
Highlands County
Emergency Medical
Services crew also may
have been exposed to TB
during their efforts to save
the victim. The police offi-
cer and one of Morales'
friends performed cardio-
pulmonary resuscitation
on the victim until
Highlands County
Emergency Medical
Services workers arrived
at the scene.
So far it is unclear as to
how local health officials
became aware of the pos-
sible infection, although
Highlands County Health
Director Dr. Paula Thaqi
said under Florida state
statutes, tuberculosis is a
reportable disease.
That means it could
have been revealed by
information from a physi-
cian, a laboratory, a hospi-
tal or from the medical
examiner's office.

State OKs

State Farm

auto rate

reduction

No-fault system
expired on Friday
By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING Drivers
insured with State Farm will
be seeing savings on their
bills in October, thanks to the
expiration of Florida's no-
fault auto insurance system.
The reduction, which will
save drivers an average of 16
percent yearly, was approved
by the state's Office of
Insurance Regulation. State
Farm, the state's largest auto
insurer, filed the reduction
proposal in February in
response to the announce-
ment that the state's no-fault
system was going to sunset
because the Legislature chose
not to renew it.
Both the House and Senate
proposed bills to modify and
overhaul the system.
However, the Senate bill was
not approved in the House,
and the House bill never
made it to the floor for a vote.
Because of the lack of
action, PIP will end Oct. 1
unless the Legislature choos-
es to extend the system at its
special session next week.
Gov. Charlie Crist has stated
that he might place the issue
on the agenda, but nothing
official has been announced.
The reduction will mean a
yearly savings of $435 mil-
lion for Florida drivers
insured by State Farm,
according to the company's
press release. An average
two-car family household
will save $360 -a year on their
rates once the PIP system
sunsets.
State Farm was the first
company to announce a. rate,
Reduction in response to the
expiration of no-fault.
Allstate (the state's second
largest car insurer) and
Progressive have both said
they will also cut rates once
no-fault ends, although nei-
ther company has announced
how significant the cuts will
be the savings would be.

Gary and Carol Speary, of Sebring, are riding their tandem bike more than 6,000-miles to
visit family and friends. They left May 21 and arrived in Colorado Springs on Tuesday. They
leave in two days for Muncy, Pa., which will take about 40 days.


Tired tandem legs brake for



a break in Colorado Springs


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
Gary and Carol Speary have shared the
highs and lows of the first 2,737 miles of
their titanic tandem trek to visit family, make
friends and experience the nation from their
two-seater bicycle.
But they're not alone.
While riding the byways and highways that
criss-cross the country, they're posting their
trials and tribulations online in a journal
shared by hundreds of touring cyclists. Along
the way, they're meeting other cross-country
riders and locals who populate communities,
the Spearys say, teetering on obscurity.
The News-Sun caught up with them by
phone Thursday at their son's Colorado
Springs home, where they could see Pike's
Peak from his back porch.
"We might just hang out here for another
week or so," Gary Speary said, enjoying the
time off of the bike since Tuesday afternoon
when they arrived a week early. "The
prospect of having more days off in Colorado
really inspired Carol."
The couple also draws inspiration from
their journal, where Sebring friends, new
acquaintances, family and complete strangers
keep track of the trek.
In a "small world" coincidence, strangers
became friends in Newton, Kan., eatery.
An excerpt from their May 23 journal
entry: "While we were eating dinner a lady
came up and asked Carol, 'Is your name
Carol?' She replied, 'Yes!' with a shocked
look on her face.
"The lady recognized her as a cyclist by
her funny tan and thought she recognized her


'We might just hang out

here for another week'

GARY SPEARY

face from pictures she'd seen on a
Crazyguyonabike.com journal she'd been
reading. Here she's been reading our journal,
knew we were to be in Newton and took a
chance it was Carol. What a nice time we had
talking cycling with Gail and Lawrence
Kliewers and their three daughters."
The Spearys have made two other epic bike
trips. Relative to those, nothing unusual has
occurred thus far, Carol Speary said. They
leave Tuesday to visit Gary's mother in
Muncy, Pa., with Gary's brother Ron joining
them for the 40-day leg.
With gas prices north of $3 per gallon, the
Spearys seemingly chose an economical way
to spend their vacation. But, averaging 70
miles per day, they've been on the road 39
days.
Considering they've spent all but a few of
those nights in motels, and they have to buy
enough food to fuel thpirbo.dies during the
day and recover them in the evening, a car
trip would have cost $355, by Gary Speary's
estimates (he taught high school math before
he retired).
And, they still have at least two months of
riding before they pedal into Highlands
County.
To follow their trip, log on to
www.crazyguyonabike.com and search

Growth Management report approved by council


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID A report
addressing future growth in
the Lake Placid area has
moved one step toward
becoming law.
The report of the Lake
Placid Area Growth
Management Committee was
approved by the town council
and Local Planning Agency,
after a lively public meeting
last week and a slightly more
subdued special council meet-
ing Tuesday night.
"I think overall both the
public hearing and the presen-


station to the Lake
Placid Local
Planning Agency
and town council
went very well
and were very
well received,"
growth manage-
ment committee
chairman Ray
Royce said.
The town's
Local Planning
Agency approved
the report by a 5-
0 count, and the
town council
approved the
report by a 3-1
vote, with coun-


any tall building being built in
the town and would not vote
for any buildings more than
four stories tall (which is the
limit under the town's current
plan).
While the plan would allow
buildings up to nine stories
tall in theory, developers
would still have to appear
before the town council and
demonstrate why a tall build-
ing would be beneficial to the
town.
So although tall buildings
could be allowed in theory,


Royce said,
antee that


'If I were a
developer I
would not
waste my time
and effort
trying to get a
tall building
built in Lake

Placid today.'

RAY ROYCE
Committee chairman


cilman Bill Brantley voting
no.
Brantley's no vote was
based on his opposition to the
building heights section of the
report, which would allow for
buildings up to nine stories
tall.
"It was just an honest dis-
agreement of opinion," Royce
said of Brantley's concerns.
Brantley objected to the
plan's small building provi-
sion, which would allow
buildings up to 108 feet tall.
He said he would be against


there is no guar-
they would be
approved by the
council. And
given the coun-
cil's apparent
objection to tall
buildings, the
likelihood of one
being approved
is remote.
"If I were a
developer, I
would not waste
my time and
effort trying to
get a tall build-
ing built in Lake
Placid today," he
said.
Discussion at
last week's pub-


lic meeting was dominated by
the town's proposed acquisi-
tion of Placid Utilities, which
are currently run by the coun-
ty. Residents of Tomoka
Heights showed up in force to
show their opposition to the
proposal last week.
However, the provision was
much less controversial at
Tuesday's town council meet-
ing, as the council agreed
with the growth management
committee on the proposal.
Royce, along with Town
Attorney Bert Harris, have


both said that combining the
utilities would be in the best
interests of both the town and
residents currently served by
Placid Utilities.
"What this plan does is
look to what is best for the
entire greater Lake Placid
region," Royce said. "We feel
that one regional utility is
what's best for the customers
and rate payers of all systems,
whether it be the town or
Tomoka Heights. Right now
you have two utility systems
within a mile of each other."
Royce attributed the con-
troversy surrounding the pro-
vision in part on misinforma-
tion.
"I think people in Tomoka
Heights think there's some
devious, sinister plan they're
unaware of," Royce said. "I
can assure them, since I've
been (growth management
committee) chairman for the'
past two years: if there is one,
I'm not aware of it."
The growth management
committee has introduced an
alternate plan that could be
enacted if the county commis-
sion chooses not to convey
Placid Utilities to the town.
Under the "Plan B," any new
customers using Placid
Utilities would have to be
annexed into the town. This
provision would not apply to
customers already served by
Placid Utilities, including res-
idents of Tomoka Heights and
others.
"We are not looking to
annex existing homeowners
of Placid Utilities," Royce
said. "And even if we wanted
to, we couldn't," he added,
because Florida law prohibits
cities from annexation with-
out consent.
Royce said the fierce oppo-
sition from Tomoka Heights


residents was surprising and
slightly discouraging to him.
"Frankly, I'm a little disap-
pointed that they don't want
to be part of theltown," Royce
said. "They're enjoying the
town, police protection,
parks. They're enjoying the
things I'm paying taxes for."
The Growth Management
Report will present its report
to the Highlands County
Board of County
Commissioners at the board's
June 12 meeting. After the
presentation and final legal
touches are put in place, the
plan would be submitted to
the Florida Department of
Community Affairs as a
Comprehensive Plan change.

Wreck ties up traffic


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
A young man is airlifted Friday morning after he was involved in a
rollover accident along U.S. 27 just north of Avon Park in Polk
County. North- and south-bound lanes were backed up as far as the
eye could see as traffic waited nearly 40 minutes for Aeromed to
arrive. The accident report was not available at press time.


SFCC, Heartland Workforce joining

forces in Ready to Work program


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK South Florida
Community College and Heartland
Workforce Investment Board are
teaming up to bring the new Florida
Ready to Work Credential program
to Highlands, DeSoto, and Hardee
counties.
Similar to Ready to Work pro-
grams in other states, the Florida
Ready to Work Credential program
determines how well employees
and job-seekers understand the
basic criteria of the workplace and
issues certificates to those who
pass a three-part assessment of
their skills. The program is volun-
tary and available free to Florida
residents who are high school jun-
iors or older.
Employers are encouraged to use
the credential to assess competency
when hiring and promoting
employees as well as to measure
and cultivate good working skills
among current employees.
The program is administered by
the Florida Department of
Education and the Agency for
Workforce Innovation, in coopera-
tion with local institutions and
agencies such as SFCC and


Heartland Workforce. The instruc-
tional components and assessments
consist of the nationally recognized
ACT WorkKeys system and are
being made available online
through the Worldwide Interactive
Network.
Through Heartland Workforce
and SFCC, workers can receive
pre-instructional assessments to
determine their mastery of basic
workforce skills. Those in need of
additional preparation can receive
tutoring through self-paced course-
work at home on their own comput-
er or at any SFCC campus where
personal tutors are available for
one-on-one assistance.
The WorkKeys assessments
measure an individual's abilities in
three areas: reading for informa-
tion, applying mathematics to basic
work-related tasks, and locating
Employers can help their
employees obtain a Florida Ready
to Work Credential by contacting
Heartland Workforce. Employees
can be tested at their business site
through the Heartland Workforce
Mobile One-Stop. For information,
call Heartland Workforce at 385-
3672, ext. 241.

Hyperbaric chamber


added to wound center


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher: tiffley @ newssun.corn
SEBRING Florida
Hospital Heartland Division
announced Thursday it will be
relocating its Center for
Wound Healing to Sun 'N
Lake Boulevard. The hospital
hopes to have everything in
place by early August.
Currently renovations are
under way. Local artists will
be turned loose inside to cre-
ate a soothing,

pital's director of
marketing, said. be

According to
Hyperbaric Med-
icine Today, the therapy is a
treatment administered by
delivering 100 percent oxy-
gen at pressures greater than
sea level pressure, to a patient
in an enclosed chamber.
There are several ways this
treatment affects the body.
According to http://wound-
care.org, this means it can be
useful in several ways.
For example, it can help in
healing wounds. That is
because hyperbaric oxygen
physically dissolves extra
oxygen into the blood plasma.
This promotes the formation
of new capillaries into wound


areas, which is important
when damaged tissue has
obstructed the flow of arterial
blood.
In this regard it can be very
useful when dealing with
wounds caused by the compli-
cations of diabetes, or in help-
ing preserve skin grafts.
Flooding the body with any
one gas, woundcare.org
states, tends to wash out all
other gases. This action

tions.
This makes
hyperbaric oxy-
gen the treatment
of choice for car-
bon monoxide
poisoning.
High pressure
oxygen also caus-


es constriction of the blood
vessels, which reduces
swelling in injured tissues.
This is useful in burns or
crash injuries.
Hyperbaric oxygen also
inhibits the growth of certain
bacteria and other micro-
organisms, which do not
require, or cannot function in
the presence of, oxygen. This
means it can help fight some
infections.
There has been an interest
in oxygen as a curative from
the very moment Joseph
Priestly discovered it in the
late 18th century, but it took

modern medicine to develop
an effective treatment.
Major breakthroughs came
when the huge suspension
bridges began to be built at
the turn of the 20th century.
Workers building the giant
support towers had to work in
areas called caissons that
went deep into the river beds.
They often fell ill with
decompression sickness.
It was the experiments in


learning how to treat that ail-
ment that led to much of
today's knowledge.
Hyperbaric oxygen remains
the treatment of choice for
decompression disease.
And, because a bubble in
the body will decrease in size
relative to the pressure it is
put under, hyperbaric cham-
bers are used to treat
embolisms too.
"Hyperbaric oxygen can be

Santis said. She is the consult-
ant helping the hospital set up
its new center. She said there
will be three single-patient
chambers, which will be
available by appointment, and
for emergencies all of the
time.
Drs Luis Duharte and Clyde
Vanterpool have been named
the co-directors of the new
center.

most of the other pieces of

and has become the defining
theme of his ornate, late-ren-
aissance style.
The foot of each cradle and
the back panel of the throne
have two young girl angels
looking at a tiny boy angel
with a halo. The top of the
crown is graced by the
cherub, carved with a lifelike
resemblance to a little boy.
"While I was carving this, I
would feel of my own body to
get the shape of the muscles
in this stance," Long said. "I
would move my arm into this
position and study how it
looked."
Long, who said he has
never had a lesson in his life,
was able to create a human
-figure that is amazingly
graceful and lifelike.
The crown is an artistic
compilation of the couple's

favorite family pets are repre-

warnings and watches issued for stretch-

storm was centered near Tampa and
about 100 miles north-northwest of Fort
Myers. The depression's forward motion
had slowed to about 23 mph and maxi-
mum sustained winds were near 35 mph.
Barry made landfall in the Tampa Bay
area around 10 a.m. according to Daniel
Brown, a meteorologist at the National
Hurricane Center.
"The landfall in a case like this is kind
- of insignificant," Brown said.
Brown said some showers and thun-
derstorms could redevelop across the
central and southern Florida peninsula
and that there could be a few isolated tor-
nadoes as the storm moves northward.

"All the symbols relate to

The National Weather Service had
issued a tornado watch for 26 Florida
counties as Barry inched closer.
The storm's winds were forecast to
weaken further as it moves north, but it is
expected to bring rain all along the
Atlantic seaboard, reaching South
Carolina by Sunday morning and New
England by Monday.
"The main effect will be rain. There
will be some wind. It really will be like a
wintertime nor'easter," Brown said.
"This time of year it will be rain and
some gale-force winds along the coast."
By Saturday morning, Barry had
brought nearly 6 inches of rain to
Melbourne and nearly 7 inches to West
Palm Beach in the past 24 hours.

said it expects 13 to 17 tropical storms,
with seven to 10 of them becoming hur-
ricanes and three to five of them in the
strong category.
"There is no correlation at all between
activity in the early part of the season
and later parts," said Lixion Avila, a hur-
ricane specialist at the center.
The hurricane center said Barry threat-

"All appropriate steps have
been taken," is all Thaqi
would say when asked about
the testing. She noted that
there is not much she could
reveal due to laws protecting
health care information.
Officials at the District 10
Medical Examiner's Office in
Polk County said Thursday
afternoon the autopsy on
Morales has not been com-
pleted and it would be several
weeks yet before a toxicology
report is finished.
In the meantime, the 31-
year-old TB patient in Atlanta
who has made national head-
lines still is under quarantine.
Health officials across Europe
from France to the Czech
Republic reportedly are trying
to find people who may have
been exposed to Speaker. He
continues to be held under the
first federal quarantine since
1963.
Speaker told authorities he
knew he had the disease but
had taken the trans-Atlantic
flight because he did not want
to miss his wedding. It was


not until he was in Rome, he
said, he discovered it was a
particularly drug-resistant
strain.
Tuberculosis is a bacterial
infection that usually attacks
the lungs, although it also
may damage other parts of the
body. The TB infection
spreads through the air when
a person who has the disease
coughs, sneezes or talks.
Experts recommend those
who have been exposed to the
disease go to their local
physician for tests.
In recent years a new, high-
ly resistant form of the dis-
ease has caused significant
concern amongst health offi-
cials around the world. In
fact, World Health
Organization officials say it is
"virtually untreatable." The
rise in drug-resistant strains
of TB over the past 20 years
reportedly has forced medical
experts to rely on more
expensive and prolong treat-
ments.
Now, they say, some of the
incarnations of the infection
cannot be treated at any cost.
While the disease is not
common in the United States,

in the rest of the world it
infects as much as a third of
the population and kills mil-
lions annually. To help pre-
vent the introduction of the
disease here, legal immigrants
must submit proof that their
lungs do not harbor the dis-
ease.
However, as late as the year
2000, Columbia University
researchers reported the rate
of active TB among foreign-
born residents of the United
States was estimated at 25.8
per 100,000 compared with
3.5 per 100,000 among U.S.-
born residents.
Thaqi did not know if the
strain of TB in question here
in Highlands County also was
a resistant strain.
"As part of the testing, cul-
tures are taken and they
would have done tests for sen-
sitivity to antibiotics but I
don't know if those results are
back yet. Those cultures take
weeks," she said.

ness logos in carpeting, for
example, or installing hearts
or, other designs within a...
wall-to-wall carpet.


Installing carpet is one of
those occupations that brings
its practitioners to their
knees.
Which is a good thing in
one way. At least at the end
of the day when your boss
looks over at you, it looks
like you're being diligent and
hard working. What's really
going on is you're wondering
if you'll ever be able to stand
straight again and that maybe
cleaning a fast food deep
fryer isn't such a bad job
after all.
Take it from me, as one
who has had four hours of
intensive experience and so
is now an expert on the sub-
ject: Carpet installation isn't
for sissies.
Andrew Abel, is an inde-
pendent without an affiliation
to any carpet store. He likes
being his own boss.
He has been laying carpet
and linoleum for about 30
years, ever since he was 12,
says the job is so tough it is
hard to find helpers and even
more difficult to keep them.
"You have to retrain your
body," Abel said, adding that
in this occupation body parts
have to do things they aren't
designed to do, either
because of highly specialized
tools, or because you have to
work on the floor.
For example, there is a tool
called a kicker. Why they call
it a kicker I don't know,
because it isn't actually
kicked. You strike it sharply
with your knee to get it to
work.
Whatever you call it, the
thing is an instrument of tor-


ture.
It is made of metal, with a
flat square head at the front.
The under side of the head
has rows of angled sharp
prongs designed to grab hold
of a carpet. That way the
installer can move the carpet
by moving the kicker for-
ward.
But the carpet is very
heavy, and the installer is
kneeling on it, so it takes
quite a bit of force to make
things happen.
The force, when 'Ba,
using the kicker,
comes from driv- (the k
ing the knee into
the other end of S
the tool, which
has a back plate mutil
covered by a For t
thick cushion.
"Basically it's year
self-mutilation,"
said Abel, only yOu '
half laughing.
"Hit it long and
enough, and your
knees get cal- ANDR
loused and it
doesn't hurt as


much. But for the first year
or two, you're black and
blue."
Abe had to have a knee
cap removed when he was in
his 20's, which is why he
uses a kicker sparingly.
Instead he uses a power
stretcher, an older tool an old
timer gave him years ago.
Made of steel, it is heavy.
He has to carry it in sections.
One end looks a little like
the flat head of a rug clean-
ing attachment for a vacuum
cleaner. Only it has a large


hand lever on the top that
connects to lengths of piping
that is laid out behind it.
The head is actually solid,
with rows of angled prongs
sticking out the bottom, like
the kicker, only bigger.
Sections of pipe, like
heavy duty vacuum cleaner
pipe, connects in a line.
There is enough to cross a
room. At the end of the pip-
ing, there is a footing bar
attached to the last piece,

which lies flush
against a wall,
bracing the
whole thing.
After making
sure the prongs
in the head have
a good grip of
the carpet, you
press down on
the lever, which
moves the head
forward, stretch-
ing the carpet in
the same direc-
tion.
It is much eas-
ier and faster
than using the


kicker, but still it requires a
fair amount of effort to lower
the hand lever.
But neither of these tools
is anything compared to
(drum roll), The Ram.
Talk about your widow
maker. The destroyer of golf
swings. The maker of tears.
The Ram earns my vote for
the worst invention that ever
made a job easier, but more
painful.
Let me explain.
Before a new carpet can be
laid, the old one has to be

brought up. Sometimes that
means the tack strips have to
be taken up as well.
Tack strips are pre-fabri-
cated strips of light wood
with sharp prongs in them.
The strips run along the base
of the walls. The prongs face
the wall keeping the carpet
secured to them.
Of course, the tack strips
have to be held in place in
their turn. Typically concrete
nails are pounded into the
floor to keep the strips in
place.
Well, The Ram is designed
to remove both the strip and
the nails.
It does this with a metal
head that has a flat edge. The
head, which looks a little like
a broom without the bristles,
is connected to a long, hol-
low, heavy-duty steel handle.
The user slams The Ram
under the stripping as hard as
possible to break out the con-
crete nails.
But here's the thing. Do
you remember those early

Continued from 9A
Saturday morning cartoons,
especially "Tom and Jerry?"
How Tom, the cat, was
always after Jerry, the
mouse? Sometimes Tom had
a large wooden mallet that he
aimed at Jerry's head. And
how, always at the last sec-
ond, Jerry would be able to
substitute something hard for
his head, so when Tom
brought the hammer down
with all his might, it would
thwack into an anvil or what-
ever hard thing Jerry had
grabbed, so that vibrations
would echo right up the han-
dle until Tom was vibrating
like a b flat at the end of a
tuning fork, his body a blur,
his feet off the floor.
Well, that's exactly what
The Ram did to me.
It slid easily under the
wood stripping, and could be
levered like a pry bar. But
man, oh man, when that
heavy metal ran into those
concrete nails, and all that
energy rebounded back up
the handle into my palms -
and from there through my
wrists and on up to my
elbows it hurt.
In fact, five days after I








ip?


used The Ram (on only three
walls), my wrists are still
tender.
But they are nothing com-
pared to my back.
The problem with
installing carpet, is that when
you are not bending over,
you have to stay low. And
while you can spend some
time on your knees, you real-
ly need to be more mobile, so
you sort of scoot along in a
squat.
But you are not just scoot-
ing, you are working as well.
For example, Abel moved
easily up and down the car-
pet he was about to remove.
He wielded a large blade
he called a Bloody Mary.
That's because this tool,
designed like a large Exacto
knife, had a two-sided blade.
Nicks, cuts and bleeding go
hand-in-hand with this job.
But there was Abel, scooting
back and forth, swiping at
the carpet as he moved along,
making it look as easy as col-
oring inside of the lines.
And again, it was like
watching a cartoon. One
where Jerry appears to slice
right through Tom with a
sword, only nothing happens,
until a second later when
Tom takes a step and falls


into evenly sliced pieces, like
a well cut bologna.
Well, I'd look at the carpet
see no cuts, and be amazed
as Abel then peeled it apart
into evenly divided strips,
each easy to roll, with no
dangling threads.
When I tried, I only cut
halfway through the carpet
half the time, and had to go
back over my work, hacking
through stubborn threads that
refused to part, and that then
hung unevenly along the
edge.
As if the work weren't
challenge enough, carpet
installing is paid by the yard.
Abel, who came to Highlands
County 18 years ago from
California where he was born
and raised, is still adjusting
to the difference in the two
state's economies. Here he
makes about half of what he
made there nearly two
decades ago.
What that means is he has
to work all that harder.
I don't know how Abel
does this day after day, espe-
cially because he works so
quickly. I was worn out
inside of four hours, and he
had done most of the labor.
But at least I kept the
fuzzy side up.

personal recollections of U.S.
wartime veterans to honor
their service and share their
stories with current and future
generations. The project also
collects stories from civilians
who worked in support of the
armed forces, such as Rosie
the Riveter.

Francisco selected World
War II female veterans as her
initial source of memorabilia
because there are a limited
number of female veterans
from the World War II era,
and they are passing away,
taking history along with
them.
These women were pio-
neers in the field of women
soldiers. Thousands of
females joined the military
for "stateside jobs" during
World War II, but only 200
collections are on file with
the Library of Congress.
Francisco adds that although
her passion and interests are
with the distinguished female
veterans of WWII, she will
interview any veteran from
any branch of service and
from any era, and provide the
data to the Library
ission of Congress, as
well.

Peace River Electric Co-op conducts third


annual emergency management conference


Special to the News-Sun
WAUCHULA The National
Hurricane Center is predicting an active
season in 2007, with an estimated 17
named storms, nine of which are predict-
ed to become hurricanes, with five of
those hurricanes becoming intense. In
response, Peace River Electric
Cooperative recently held its third
Annual Emergency Management
Conference at its headquarters in
Wauchula.
PRECO is an electric distribution util-
ity serving 10 counties in the Central
Florida area, including' parts of
Highlands County.
Emergency Management representa-
tives from seven counties DeSoto.
Hardee, Highlands, Manatee. Osceola.
Polk and Sarasota were on hand to
discuss PRECO's power restoration plan
and how it affects the citizens of their


respective counties. The two-hour pres-
entation was lead by three of PRECO's
vice presidents; Miles Green, vice presi-
dent of operations; Jerry Twiggs, vice
president of engineering; and Nell
Withers, vice president of marketing and
member services, outlined the coopera-
tive's planned response to deal with cat-
astrophic hurricane damage, should it
occur.
Twiggs said, "The knowledge gained
by this annual event benefits our mem-
bers, the counties we serve, and the
cooperative itself. Working with county
emergency managers before a hurricane
presents itself makes us all better pre-
pared to deal with a major system loss."
PRECO's plan calls for the safe and
efficient restoration of power in the
shortest amount of time possible.
A significant piece of PRECO's plan is
its ability, as a member of the Touchstone

When will Moslems
stand up for America
S*- Editor:
SMany times here in
America, we have witnessed
on the television world news
reports the angry and usually
S violent mobs of Moslems,
S Palestinians, Iraqis,
-, Pakistanis, Iranians, etc.,
demonstrating against the
o government and people of
- America including the burn-
ing of our American flag.
But we never see any
.. Americans, neither our gov-
ernment nor angry mobs of
Christians or Jews, etc.,
demonstrating against the
Palestinians, Iraqis,
Palestinians, Iranians, etc.,
Islamic governments or peo-
ple ... or the burning of their
a flags.
Why not? Is it because our
American government and
O predominately Christian peo-
ple are more sensible, loving
and peaceful than those
S- fanatical Islamic govern-
ments and people of the
world, wherever and
S whomever they may be?
S And therefore we ask:
- when shall the several mil-
S- lion Moslems living in peace
and equal religious freedom
S- here in America, going to
. counter-demonstrate -
S. peacefully of course, in favor
S. of America: all of its people,
Government and flag?
Also, for their mullahs and
mosques to publicly proclaim
that they are not merely non-
Hamas, non-Hezbollah, non-
al-Qaida and non-Taliban;
but actually are anti-Hamas,
anti-Hezbollah, anti-al-Qaida
and anti-Taliban? The other
300 millions of us Americans
would like to know!

Remembering some
wartime buddies


Editor:
As I reminisced this past
Memorial Day, I went back a
few years. Yes about 60-plus
to the second World War. As
I did, I went and shed a few
tears thinking of some of my
shipmates who didn't get to
come back and enjoy the
good life that we fought for
our country.
I thought of some of the
times we gathered on the
flighted deck and put our
buddies on the board and tilt-
ed it outward and slid them
into the water. I still miss
them and I sometimes won-
der why God has let me live
so long, for which I am total-
ly thankful, though not
deserving.
I remember right after
Pearl Harbor I boarded the
newly built aircraft carrier
USS Yorktown. I remember
when President Franklin
Roosevelt's wife came
aboard and christened the
ship. She was a fine lady and
she also had enough sense to
get off!
My ship to this day holds
the record for being the most
decorated aircraft carrier in
the history of the entire
United States Navy. But the
price, like a lot of things,
was pretty high. To this day I
still don't feel right enjoying
something that my friends
didn't get to.
Whether that was a first
one or not, only God knows.
I will say at the time our
nation was a God-fearing
nation. God was honored in
the government, in our
schools, in our states and in
most of our homes and would
you believe it when we were
able to hold a service on our


hanger deck, our chaplain
prayed in the name of Jesus
Christ. Now try that today.
I guess the most thankful
thing I can think of this
Memorial Day is that my
wife and I have had the
opportunity to witness for
our Lord and Savior Jesus
Christ in our yet free country.
When it's all over my
friends, it comes down to
this:
"Only one life will soon be
past and what's done for
Christ is all that will last."
How about you my friend,
have you trusted Christ as
your personal Savior? And
have you told anyone yet?
I'm thankful some 70-plus
years ago at the age of 10 or
so that someone told me.
Jesus loves you, why not
tell Him you love Him also.
He paid a high price for your
freedom and a gift of eternal
life forever with Him.

Take guidance to the
election-day polls
Editor:
I'd like to share some of
the issues from the American
Family Journal with you.
There is little doubt that the
homosexual movement has
been very effective in getting
much of its agenda put into
place. Gay activists and those
who sympathize have
grasped leadership and deci-
sion-making roles. However,
the success has not engen-
dered satisfaction. ...
Religious freedoms are being
trampled in a frightening pre-
view of things to come.
This is nowhere more evi-
dent than in our public
See LETTERS, page 15A


Controlling people can do a lot of damage


Control The American
Heritage College Dictionary
lists several definitions for
this word. Here are a few of
them:
"To exercise authority or
dominating influence over,
direct or manage; to hold in
restraint, check (as in con-
trolling my temper, listed as
'self-control,' a fruit of the
Spirit, in the Bible); a
restraining device, measure
or limit."
There's nothing wrong
with having things under
control, like when the school
teacher has the classroom
under control so he/she can
teach; when a person has
their health manageable,
watching their intake of cer-
tain foods to stay healthy,
etc.
The definition that comes


Janelle's
Jargon
Janelle Dennison

to mind is from a negative
standpoint, more along the
lines of manipulation that
results in control (definition:
shrewd or devious manage-
ment for one's own advan-
tage), for instance, when the
husband insists the wife go to
bed when he does, not taking
into consideration her feel-
ings. Maybe she isn't tired,
would like to read or watch
TV, etc. It's like everything
has to shut down because he
is going to bed. If he does
this every night, then that to
me is controlling.
If the boyfriend times his
girlfriend while she's in the
store, calls her on the cell


phone, has to know what
she's doing each moment of
the day, checks her mileage
in the car, that's controlling.
Making her tear up old
boyfriend pictures is also a
sign of his own insecurity
(yet he keeps his old pic-
tures). Where's the equality
in that, not to mention the
"love."
When a family member
has to have everything their
way and everyone else has to
sacrifice to suit that one per-
son, that's control. No one
else is happy unless that per-
son is happy; the sad fact is,
that person is seldom happy
about anything at anytime.
I've even seen it at times
in a church or two ... when
one of the leaders says, "If

A good

teacher story

Not too long ago I wrote a
column that singled out some
people in education that were
less than exemplary.
Unfortunately, these people
exist and they drive people
like me crazy.
But there are a lot of good
tep ahrsout, there. Men,and
) woma.enwQo: devotethem-
selves to their young charges
in a profession that isn't
always kind or rewarding.
Let's look at one of them.
Betty Parker has taught in
Highlands County for more
than 25 years. Stop and think
about that for a minute.
Twenty-five years is a lot
of time. It's about half of my
life. It's a quarter of a cen-
tury. Think about the
changes that have taken
place in the world since
1982, 25 years ago. It's a
long time to be doing any-
thing.
Betty taught 25 years
worth of kids, most of them
in kindergarten. Now if you
have a child who's kinder-
garten age, you know she has
to have incredible patience.
Kids who are kindergarten
age are cute, adorable, and
have the attention span of an
insect.
I know for a fact that
Betty remembers her young
charges. One of John's
friends had her as a teacher.
Even though the young man
was in high school, she
remembered him. To me, a
person who has days when
she's lucky if she remembers
her own name, this is amaz-
ing.
Some of her students
apparently think she's pretty
special too. Two years ago
one of her student's families
went to the trouble of mak-
ing her a certificate of thanks
and having various members
of the extended family sign
it. They also made sure
copies went out to Wally
Cox and the principal of
Cracker Trail Elementary
School. People don't often
go out of their way to praise
teachers for doing things
right, and I think it is a testi-
mony to Betty that this fami-
ly did so.
As you may have guessed,
I know Betty Parker person-
ally. She and I worship at
the same congregation. I
have found her to be intelli-
gent and kind. She never did
have John or James for
kindergarten, but she has
watched them grow up over

This battle is not only tak-

possibly other places. There
are those who want to tear
down our Christian values
and morals. The war rages on
the academic level, law
enforcement, entertainment
and even some churches;
some are splitting as a result
of some accepting homosexu-
al pastors.
Our government is
ordained by God and affects
our everyday lives. The laws
passed by local, state and
federal legislature governs
the behavior of all. This is
what decides what is accept-
able for society as a whole.
We are under the law and it
is our duty, especially as
Christians, to be engaged and
try to keep up with what is
going on because decisions
are being made about right
and wrong and we have to

Yes, He posts signs all along the
way to warn us there is a cliff
ahead. For example, if we're not
taking care of our bodies, then
our body will begin to let us
know with frequent trips to the
doctor and even hospitalization.
But it's up to us to "read the
signs" and do something about
it.
I guess my point in all this is
the only thing or person we need
to control is ourselves. Of
course we have to lead our chil-
dren and teach them and at
times control them (by directing
or guiding them, etc.) but that's
not the kind of control I've
mentioned ab&oe; .'


live by those decisions; so,
we need people of good
Christian character and con-
victions in office, rather than
godless secularists who are
hostile to the Christian way
of life.
Sometimes we have those
who run for office under the
portrayal of Christian values
and when the pressure is on
they can't be counted on to
stand firm; then there are
those who won't do anything
that will cost them a vote. I
agree with Tim Wildman,
American Family Association
president, who says he is not
impressed with any of the
three front runners for presi-
dent: John McCain who has
made a habit of putting down
the religious right; Guiliane,
who is pro-abortion and pro-
homosexual marriage, or Mitt
Romney, who has switched
from pro-abortion to pro-life.
He suggests Mike
Huchabee, Sam Brownbeck
or Duncan Hunter who are all
long shots at this time. It is
our duty and privilege to be
informed and stay in the bat-


The Bible talks about control-
lihg our tongue in the book of
James. Just trying that for a day
can be very challenging.
Sometimes I speak before I
think, not a good thing to do!
Controlling tempers can be
another thing that will keep us
busy. Keeping a handle on how
much time we spend watching
TV instead of exercising, or
spending time with family is a
feat. Watching how we treat our
fellow man is also time consum-
ing. Working on our patience
level can be loads of fun!
Almost half the year is gone

add this to it. After all, that list
is about how to improve our-
selves.

the nearly 11 years we've lived here in

things about them (even having known
them in their younger, less grown up
days) is another reason I think she's a
fine human being.
But Betty has decided to hang up her

school system. That is bad news for
Highlands County, but good news for her
family and friends, who see this as
something she has earned.
We need more Betty Parkers in our

Please know that each
small kindness and every lit-

ensure they are giving their students
their best. Teachers who live lives of
integrity outside of the classroom as well
as inside. Teachers willing to devote
themselves to the craft rather than just
doing enough to get by.
If you have a teacher like Betty Parker
for your child, be grateful. And let the
teacher know you appreciate what he or
she is doing for your child. Sometimes
knowing that helps a teacher get through
a bad day.
And if you are one of the countless
people who had Betty Parker as a
teacher, please join me in wishing her
well. After more than 25 years of serv-
ice, she has undoubtedly earned it.

Caught in Google's cross-hairs: Mapping feature includes unwitting subjects


By MICHAEL LIEDTKE
Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO -
Google Inc. bills the latest
twist on its online maps as
"Street View," but it looks a
bit like "Candid Camera" as
you.- cruise through the
g.an&ora of pictures that cap-
tured fleeting moments in
neighborhoods scattered
across the country.
In San Francisco, there's a
man picking his nose on a
street corner, another fellow
taking out the trash and anoth-
er guy scaling the outside of
an apartment building, per-
haps just for fun or maybe for
some more sinister purpose.
Further down the highway
at Stanford University, there's
the titillation of a couple
coeds sunbathing in their biki-
nis. In San Jose, there's the
rather sad sight of a bearded
man apparently sleeping or
did he just pass out? in the
shadow of a garbage can, with
what appears to be an empty
cup perched in front of him.
In Miami, there's a group
of protesters carrying signs
outside an abortion clinic. In
other cities, you can see men
entering adult book stores or
leaving strip joints.
Potentially embarrassing or
compromising scenes like
these are raising questions
about whether the Internet's
leading search engine has
gone too far in its latest
attempt to make the world a
more accessible and trans-
parent place.
"Everyone expects a certain
level of anonymity as they
move about their daily lives,"
said Kevin Bankston, a staff
attorney for the Electronic
Frontier Foundation, a group
devoted to protecting people's
rights on the Internet. "There
is a certain 'ick' factor here."
Google is hoping to elicit
oohss and ahhs" with Street
View, which was introduced
on its maps for the San
Francisco Bay area, New
York, Las Vegas, Denver and
Miami' earlier this week. The


Google Maps
Google
Maps' new
Street View
gives users
a 360-
degree look
at a speci-
fied point
on a map,
but some of
the photos
catch peo-
ple who
weren't
expecting to
be pho-
tographed.


Mountain View-based compa-
ny already is planning to
expand the service to other
U.S. cities and other coun-
tries.
The feature provides high-
resolution photos to enable
street-level tours so users can
get a more realistic, 360-
degree look at places they
might go or spots where they
already have been. To guard
against privacy intrusions,
Google said all the photos
were taken from vehicles
driving along public streets
during the past year. The pho-
tos will be periodically updat-
ed, but the company hasn't
specified a timetable for
doing so.
"This imagery is no differ-
ent from what any person can
readily capture or see walking
down the street," Google
spokeswoman Megan Quinn
said in a statement. "Imagery
of this kind is available in a
wide variety of formats for
cities all around the world."
Google certainly isn't the
first company to venture
down this photographic
avenue. Amazon.com Inc.
launched a similar mapping
feature in January 2005 on a
search engine called A9.com.
That search engine's former
chief executive, Udi Manber,
now works for Google. And
Microsoft Corp. began dis-
playing street-level pictures
on its online maps for San
Fraricisco aiid Seattle late last


year.
A9's photographic maps,
which were abandoned late
last year, raised privacy con-
cerns about women being
seen entering domestic vio-
lence shelters.
Hoping to avoid similar
complaints, Google tried to
identify potentially sensitive
locations by contacting the
Safety Net Project at the
National Network to End
Domestic Violence, much to
the delight of Cindy
Southworth, the group's
director.
"We were thrilled that a
major technology company
like this reached out in this
way to help protect these vic-
tims," she said.
Google also is offering a
"help" button on all the street-
level photos to provide a link
for users to request the
removal of an image that is
objectionable or clearly iden-
tifies a person who doesn't
want to be included in the
visual tapestry. Company
spokeswoman Victoria Grand
said Google has fielded "very
few" removal requests so far.
Eileen Diamond is hoping
she can persuade Google to
replace its current picture of a
Miami street corner where
protesters gather once a week
to protest the abortions per-
formed at A Choice For
Women. The picture, still
available on Google's maps
Friday afternoon, includes a


cluster of protesters standing
outside the clinic, an image
that clinic administrator
Diamond worries will scare
away potential patients or per-
haps attract trouble makers to


the facility.
"It's sort of disturbing
because it's certainly not the
kind of message we want to
be sending out," said
Diamond. "It's already very
painful for our patients to
come in. We want them to feel
safe and protected."
As of Friday, Diamond said
she was still having trouble
finding the right way through
Google's Web site to notify
the company she would like
the picture removed.
Privacy experts believe
these kinds of ticklish situa-
tions are bound to arise as
technology makes it increas-
ingly easy to share pictures
and video on the Internet, pit-
ting the rights of free expres-
sion against the rights to per-
sonal privacy.


"'ThheIy Make


You Go Deaf l!"


S. ,.-


Because Google's street;
level pictures were taken in
public places, the company
appears to be on solid legal
ground.
But Bankston doesn't think
the law necessarily absolves
Google, particularly since the
company has embraced
"Don't Be Evil" as its creed.
He worries that some people
in need of psychological or
medical help won't seek treat-
ment for fear of being caught
in the cross-hairs of Google's
cameras.
"There's a distinction
between what Google has a
legal right to do and what is
the responsible thing to do,'"
said Bankston, who believes
the company should have
blurred the images of unwit-
ting pedestrians.

A sigh or

a song
Our 10-year-old grandson
played soccer with a local
team. Practices and games
had become his focus. When
his soccer picture came in
the mail, we marveled at
how he had grown.
Sometime into the season,
we talked by phone. As it
happened, they had just
come in from a game.
"So how did your team
do?" I asked, hopeful he
would say they had won.
"Same as the last five
games, Grandma," he said
dejectedly. "We lost ...
again."
After commiserating with
him for a little while, I asked
if he liked playing soccer.
"Oh, yes," he said, the
tone of his voice brightening.
"Soccer is fun. But it's not
so fun to lose all the time,"
he admitted honestly.
"Did you play your best?"
I asked.
He answered that he had
and we talked about how
even in losing there are
S thiiis we leath so that even-
tually those lessons will lead
us to victory.
Everyone wants to win -
but to have winners, some-
one loses. Victory can be
illusive if it is sought after as
the only prize of a game
well-played.
One can't live through life
without having dreams come
crashing down or plans
foiled. Sometimes, just when
we think victory is around
the corer, another obstacle
presents itself.
Interestingly, victory
shines forth in the trouble -
not the avoidance of it.
In hindsight, we can see
this over and over in our
lives. One example is our
move to Florida. The circum-
stances of life-threatening
asthma for my husband, Ken;
serious financial reverses;
and, not being able to escape
those problems in the
Northeast led us to Florida.
In Psalm 18: 30, NIV, we
read, "As for God, his way is
perfect."
Ken's improved health,
our financial picture and a
new location breathed new
air into his lungs and new
life into our financial
exhaustion. And, when meas-
ured by our human standards
spelled victory.
However, through the
insights of Amy Carmichael,
I've learned that real victory
comes from withstanding the
storms with a song rather
than a sigh. Honestly,
though, sighing seems to
come first.
We all want to be out of
our misery quickly. We pray.
We plead. But, God's gra-
cious patience extends
through the trial and into the
answer as we read in Isaiah
30: 18, NKJV, "Therefore the
Lord will wait, that He may
be gracious to you."
It's sometimes a hard con-
cept to accept whether for
a young soccer player or a
seasoned adult facing life's
storms.
However, when we declare
his grace and perfect ways
joyfully with a song in our
hearts and not a resigned
sigh on our lips, we know
true victory. Selah

Diversions


Setting the temperature in your home


When we lived up north and heated
our house electrically, we were very
careful about the setting of the thermo-
stat. We tried to keep it within a certain
range for the daytime and lower at night
when we snuggled under warm covers
for sleep.
Fortunately, we had two thermostats
one for upstairs and one for down-
stairs. This meant that when we weren't
in the bedrooms, we could keep the set-
tings lower and save energy. Then
when the children came home from
school and sat at their desks to do
homework, we put the thermostat higher
for their comfort.
Our electric bills were astronomical
as it was. But, without care, they'd be
off the charts.
However, like thermometers, our bod-
ies reflected these careful settings. If we
felt a bit chilled, we compensated by
dressing a little warmer. An extra
sweater or sweatshirt did the trick as
did that additional quilt at night. The
spirit of cooperation helped us keep bal-
ance and harmony in our family while
juggling the monthly heating costs.
Every home is equipped with a ther-
mostat to set the temperature of the
house. And we're all familiar with ther-
mometers that help us determine a


child's temperature.
But have you ever thought of those
two concepts in regard to parent and
child relationships?
Think of parents as the thermostat
and children as the thermometers.
If parents exhibit nurturing attitudes
of joy, calm and acceptance, it's likely
that our children will reflect the temper-
ature of the home.
However, if children are raised in a
chaotic, noisy, brawling home they'll
likely reflect the same or withdraw to
protect themselves and assume all
homes are alike.
The Bible teaches us that our children
are a gift and reward from God. It
shows us how to train them up to know
and love God and follow his ways. It
sets standards for acceptable behavior
between husband and wife as well as for
how children are to obey and honor
their parents.


Parents who choose the wisdom of
God's ways will build homes that are
warm, loving and inviting. As it says in
Proverbs 24: 3 & 4, NIV, "By wisdom a
house is built, and through knowledge
its rooms are filled with rare and beauti-
ful treasures."
The treasure of well-adjusted, con-
tented children is precious. When par-
ents cultivate hearing hearts, they'll
impart understanding and the skill of
living to their children.
When we develop our own relation-
ship with God, the fruit of God's Spirit
will permeate our homes. Like a well-
set thermostat, the "temperature" at
home will be reflected in love, joy,
peace, patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Equally important is how we respond
to our children's unacceptable behavior.
We shouldn't reflect their moods and
attitudes. A mature response instead
of a knee-jerk reaction will help dif-
fuse anger, fear or frustration and
resolve conflict.
So let's be that dependable "thermo-
stat" in our homes so our "thermome-
ters" will reflect the temperature of our
homes.

Distraction often the best discipline for toddlers


Question: Please describe
the best approach to the dis-
cipline of a 1-year-old child.
Dr. Dobson: Many chil-
dren will begin to gently test
the authority of their parents
as they approach their first
birthday. The confrontations
will be minor and infrequent
at first, yet the beginnings of
future struggles can be seen.
My own daughter, for.
example, challenged her
mother for the first time
when she was 9 months old.
My wife was waxing the
kitchen floor when Danae
crawled to the edge of the
linoleum. Shirley said, "No,
Danae," gesturing to the
child not to enter the kitchen.
Since our daughter began
talking very early, she clearly
understood the meaning of
the word "no." Nevertheless,
she crawled straight onto the
sticky wax. Shirley picked
her up and set her down in
the doorway while saying
"no" even more strongly as
she put her down. Seven
times this process was
repeated until Danae finally
yielded and crawled away in


tears.
As far as we can
recall, that was the
first direct con-
frontation of wills
between my daugh-
ter and wife. Many
more were to fol-
low.
How does a par-
ent discipline a 1-
year-old? Very
carefully and gen-
tly! A child at this


Focus
The Fa
Dr. James


age is easy to dis-
tract and divert. Rather than
jerking a wristwatch from the
child's hands, show him or
her a brightly colored alter-
native and then be pre-
pared to catch the watch
when it falls.
When unavoidable con-
frontations do occur, as with
Danae on the waxy floor, win
them by firm persistence but
not by punishment. Have the
courage to lead the child
without being harsh or mean
or gruff.
Compared to the months
that are to follow, the period
around 1 year of age is usual-
ly a tranquil, smooth-func-


tioning time in a
child's life.
Question: My
daughter is 5 years
old and has been
S having some very
scary nightmares
S lately. She wakes
up screaming in the
middle of the night,
n On but she can't tell us
imily what frightened
her. The next morn-
Dobson ing, she doesn't
seem to recall the
dream, but something is
obviously troubling her.
My wife and I are worried
that she may be developing
psychological problems that
are being expressed in these
terrible dreams. Is that possi-
ble?
Dr. Dobson: I think your
daughter is all right. She is
probably having a "night ter-
ror" rather than a nightmare.
Let me describe the differ-
ence between the two.
Nightmares occur primari-
ly in what is known as "stage
three" sleep, and are often
remembered if the dreamer
awakens.


Night terrors, by contrast,
usually occur in "stage four"
sleep, which is even deeper
and further from conscious-
ness. Some children experi-
ence strange dreams during
this phase that cause them to
sit up and scream in terror.
However, when adults come
to the rescue, they find that
the child is unresponsive.
The eyes are open, but the
boy or girl is obviously not
awake. And the next morn-
ing, there is no memory of
what was so deeply disturb-
ing.
This appears to be what
you are describing with refer-
ence to your daughter. The
good news is that your little
girl is apparently fine. The
bad news is that you may
have to deal for a time with
her midnight terrors that drag
you from your own stage
four sleep.

Put beautiful gardens


among your big trees


Today, let's take Yard
a little different
approach to dis- Para
cussing trees in our Max
landscapes. Rather
than the usual
good advice on planting
more trees and how to do so
properly (and spring and fall
are great times to plant
trees), let us assume you
have some bigger trees but
would like to beautify the
areas underneath them. I
want us to focus on the trees
we currently have, not neces-
sarily on what we would like
to see beneath them.
Big trees are a wonderful
part of a landscape. They
should, ideally, be healthy
trees. They need to be situat-
ed appropriately. However,
Sthe areas beneath them may
be barren of grass and flow-
ers or small shrubs.
So, if we have from one to
dozens of larger trees, how
can we beautify among and
underneath them?
First, you may be thinking
of getting grass to grow
underneath your trees, or
thinking of all the pretty
flowers you can imagine
growing there. Dreaming cer-
tainly can be good.
Imagining creating beautiful
flower gardens, or even hard-
scapes, amid mature trees is
probably best
done while the Big
deciduous trees
are still bare and are
leafless. But,
some cautions are WOnd
in order before
you grab a tiller part
or shovel or climb lands
on a mower.land
Will grass in HO,
fact actually grow
.under your mrture- the
trees? Will you
Sfatally'damage ben
tree roots if you them n
till underneath
your big trees? barr
Will your pro-
posed plants actu- gras,
ally do well as
you imagine they flowe
will? Knowing the
answers to these S/"
and other ques- shr
tions before you
expend many dol-
lars and much effort is very
sensible and wise.
Start with a plan! Create a
master plan. And, if this
seems impossible, or you just
don't have the time or incli-
nation to educate yourself on
this or the time to see it to
fruition, consider obtaining
the services of someone who
does this sort of thing regu-
larly for a living. Just going
shopping randomly for things
you might like to plant in the
shade of bigger trees on your
property may lead to regrets
and waste time and money.
Ask yourself: What kinds
of trees do I have? How deep
is the shade will there be
enough sunlight for success-
fully establishing the flowers
or shrubs you desire to grow?
How dry? How fertile? (Big
trees, especially if their root
systems are mostly at or near
the surface of the ground, eat
and drink so much that your
new plantings will be com-
peting at a distinct disadvan-
tage for food and water.)
Again, plan for wise use of
your understory spaces.
Then, get a plan to make it
happen, either in increments
you can get a handle on, or
all at once if money is not a
problem.
Do you wish to thin or
remove any trees? (How
about the unhealthy ones?)
Do you possibly have one
or more mature trees worth a
few hundred dollars or more
from a logging/timber per-
spective? Could the value of
the log offset the cost of hav-
ing it removed ... possibly
even helping pay for the new


landscape materials?
If you want to keep all
existing trees, are you will-
ing to remove some of their


Is To lower limbs, or
even thinning up to
dise a third of their
branches, to allow
helps air and light in?
(This may cost
quite a lot-of money, but it
can also be money well spent
if you want to keep mature
trees for the long haul.) Such
thinning allows smaller trees
to grow and also removal of
excess and diseased limbs are
good for the tree. Trees that
have had branches thinned
survive much better in major
storms.
Whether you have a dream
of wildflowers, azaleas and
the like in your wooded area,
or if you are considering
some major additions like a
naturalistic stream with
waterfalls, paths, a retreat in
the woods for relaxation and
rejuvenation, maybe a tree-
house for the youngsters ...
considering what modifica-
tions to existing trees may be
necessary is advisable.
Some trees allow for better
growing conditions under-
neath them than do others. A
few trees you may be able to
grow grass or flowers or
flowering shrubs under might
include these: redbud, sas-
safras, persimmon, ginkgo,
blackgum, sourwood, red
oak, some pines, American or
yaupon holly, per-
trees simmon, pecan,
tr s horse chestnut,
,e a bald cypress,
sycamore, shan-
lerful tung maple, ash,
honey locust and
of a especially
Kentucky coffee
cape. tree and yel-
vever lowood. These
trees have either
area dappled shade or
tap roots rather
eath than all surface
roots two
may be important factors
en of in what you can
expect to grow
s and successfully
beneath bigger
eTS or trees in your land-
all scape.
l scIf you want to
ubs. keep all your
trees, as well as
their limbs and
have dark heavy shade, can
you still create some planted
areas beneath them?
Well, yes you can. But
your choices of plants that do
well in dry, shaded, infertile
locations may be much more
limited and probably less
colorful than you hoped.
Some vibernum, mahonia
(Oregon grape), azalea/rho-
dodendrons, skimmia, leu-
cothe, hostas, ferns, moss,
liriope, winter creeper, ivy
are possible suggestions for
these conditions.
Flowering bulbs may do
well under deciduous trees as
they strut their stuff before
the leaves in the canopy
overhead fill out. Daffodils,
crocus, squill, windflowers
come to mind. Also, consider
carefully adding a few col-
lected wildflowers you may
find growing in similarly
shaded conditions in the
woods or in a neighboring
yard. (Get permission
though!)
Shrubs planted in shady
spots. will require more fre-
quent pruning to create a
good look. Plants in the
shade of other plants will
become spindly and may
grow one-sided towards the
light.
Don't despair of your
dream of a lovely woodsy
garden just because you have
some larger trees. But do be
sure to analyze the situation
carefully, perhaps securing
expert opinions and the very
best to you as you create a
more lovely paradise where
large trees currently grow.

Renowned for designing
the world famous Holocaust

He used heat sensitive,
infrared film to enhance the
subtle shapes of each tulip
petal. Then, using special
dyes, he hand-tinted each
photographic print with a del-
icate hint of soft color.
Treister's career as a
painter, sculptor, architect,
photographer and author
spans more than 40 years. His
notable achievements include-
the Gumencick Chapel at
Temple Israel of Greater
Miami, the Synagogue at
Miami's Jewish Home and a

Ss Psahnll3:.1, "The Lord is
S Y. m shepherd; I shall not
- l ant." In this scripture
David describes his
sherperd as the Lord.
Then he goes on to say, is
imy shepherd. The word
is, meaning right nown this very
moment, today to meet today's needs.
When w'e have a need, it's in the now.
When we have a struggle, it's in the
now. When we hurt, it's in the now.
According to this scripture, the Lord is
here to meet us in our present
experience.. He makes sure we have
enough grace to cover troubles of today.
When we get to lomornrw, the Lord will
be there. If we take time to thank God
for the present, we won't have to worry
about tomorrow. The. Lord will meet
today's needs today. He'll meet
tomorrow needs tomorrow. Now today,
you make it a Blessed day. And
remember the Lord is there to meet
today's need. Be Encouraged!

Swallow-tailed kite a welcome visitor to Highlands County


Have you noticed the scis-
sor-tailed, graceful birds of
prey soaring on the air cur-
rents lately? Such a sight
may instill a feeling of won-
der how does it feel to be
so free and float along the
atmosphere?
The American swallow-
tailed kite is perhaps the
most magnificent bird to
observe. Not only its seem-
ingly effortless and buoyant
flight, but the attractiveness
of the creature makes it a
rare and fascinating sight.
The kite's prominent tail is
what separates it from other
hawks. It has a forked tail
and pointed wings. The head
and under parts are white,
and the wings and tail are
black. The bird is about the
size of an osprey and has a


body length of 19 to 26 inch-
es with a four-foot wing
span.
The swallow-tail spends
most of the day in flight. So
much so that it eats a majori-
ty of its food while aloft. The
kite's diet consists of various
insects, lizards, snakes, frogs
and even young nestlings.
While hunting, kites drift just
above the tree tops with out-
stretched wings and tail in
constant motion as they bal-
ance on the air currents.
In addition to hunting and
eating in flight, the birds also
drink without landing. They
skim over the water to drink
and bathe.
Swallow-tailed kites nest
in tall trees, preferably pines,
due to limited maneuverabili-
ty at low air speeds. They do


not hover
and
require
accessible
nests
exposed
to wind.
Other rea-
sons they N
prefer to News
build in From The
the high- Watershed
est tree
tops is Corine Burgess
that the
best support for their nests is
located there and the height
may save it from fire.
Generally, the female lays
one to three creamy white
eggs with bold dark brown
spots. There is a 28-day incu-
bation period and the male
and female share in brooding


and feeding their young.
These graceful hawks
come from South America
and begin to arrive in Florida
in late February and early
March. They will depart


around August or September
for wintering quarters. They
are somewhat social and
often times hunt in the same
territory.
We are fortunate in
Highlands County, that these
graceful creatures build their
nests here and visit this time
of year.
It is always a pleasure to
see these beautiful birds soar-
ing above the trees. It is
amazing when we realize that
these birds rarely touch the
ground. They are almost con-
stantly in flight, starting in
the early morning and rarely
perching until the evening.
They hunt, mate, drink and
court while in flight. Very lit-
tle energy is expended in the
beating of wings as the kites
appear to float effortlessly


through the skies.
Do not deny yourself the
experience of seeing these
winged wonders in flight.
Listen for the shrill squeals,
whistles and soft twittering
these creatures make. Watch
for the activities they under-
take while in the air; building
their nests, courting each
other, and hunting. Allow
yourself to be hypnotized by
their grace and beauty.
After all, swallow-tailed
kites are among the most
adept and acrobatic flyers of
all raptors.

resource specialist with the

Conservation District. E-mail

S CC loads


up on recruits


from Highlands


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.comn
AVON PARK Coming off his
first losing season in four years, ,
South Florida Community College
head baseball coach Rick Hitt wasn't
about to be satisfied with the status
quo.
"It wasn't real fun," he said of the
recently completed season. "We're
losing eight sophomores to gradua-
tion and I've asked five of last
year's freshman back. For the first
time in a few years, it's going to be
an 'every job is up for grabs' situa-
tion."
And Highlands County will be
well represented among those clam-
oring for spots on next years team.
"We, as part of recruiting, will see
a lot of teams from all over the state
play, but our first focus is on the
teams in what we call our service
area," Hitt said. "Last year we prob-
ably saw Avon Park play six times
and this year we got to see Sebring
play nine games."
Which certainly helped them get a
good look at some players they
wanted.
Among this year's signees there
will be four former Blue Streaks tak-
ing to the SFCC practice field start-
ing August 27.
Outfielders Charlie Peck and J.T.
Tomlinson, second baseman Ryan
Thorlton and pitcher Cory Ritter,
who just signed this past Thursday.
Former Red Devils that will be
vying for spots as Panthers will be


'Sebring had a great
season... it helps to
have guys coming in
from successful
Programs. Success
definitely matters.'

Taiwan Perry, Matt Devlin and
Johnny Sedlock.
Lake Placid's Brandon Bierman,
who red-shirted this past season for
the Panthers, will be back in the
mix, along with soon-to-be sopho-
more, and former Dragon Steven
Levine.
That will be nine Highlands
County representatives potentially
making up the bulk of the South
Florida roster next season and
Ricky Morales of DeSoto High
School makes it an even ten from the
Heartland area.
"Our goal is to try to give an
opportunity to the top student ath-


letes in our service area," Hitt said.
"I'm real excited about our local
guys and look forward to working
and meeting challenges with them.
Honestly, not everyone came to
the park last year with the right
approach," he continued. "The three
things that are key for any athlete in
our program grades, off-field
behavior and, of course, performance
on the field."
In his crop of new recruits, Hitt
sees the potential not just in the
players, but in the programs the
players are coming from.
"Sebring had a great season, it
was a lot of fun to watch them play
and it helps to have guys coming in
from successful programs," he said.
"We have a lot of other guys coming
in also that we were able to see in
the state playoffs. Success definitely
matters."
But while coming from a success-
ful program lays the foundation of
winning, character and work ethic,
that is no guarantee to success on the
next level.
That is something that each of the
34 players being invited to training
camp will be learning as they go.
"The number-one way to make the
roster is to be able to make the
adjustment to the college game,"
Hitt said. "The step up in talent and
competition, the daily grind of the
longer season and coming to the
park every day with the right

Add a little

excitement to

your life ...

If any of you outdoorsmen
would like to add a little more
excitement to your life, here's
your chance and unlike that TV
show that sends you off to some
jungle island, there's no real
travel involved.
It is not costly but since you
will be on the water, you will
need a boat or at least a floating
innertube. If you are successful,
you will be monetarily reward-
ed. To help you in this endeav-
or, the sponsors will educate
you on the rules with a three
hour program at no cost to you.
Attending this enlightening
program is not mandatory but
for newcomers I would say it
might be beneficial to the suc-
cess of your adventure, as it is
fraught with some danger. In
fact, just enough danger that I
will not be participating.
It might not be a good idea to
take the wife or girl friend
along. The going may get a lit-
tle rough and blood may be
spilled. Like my wife, most
women are just a little horrified
at the site of blood. The compe-
tition will play out over 11
weeks beginning August 15th
and ending November 1st.
Sponsored by the state of
Florida, those who wish to take
part must pay $271.50. This
will allow you to roam the wet-
lands, lakes and marshes until
you come face to face with the
meanest, toughest critter in
Florida. Night time hours offer
the best chance for success. It
also adds to the excitement.
This mean critter is the
Florida alligator. All who pay
the fee will be allowed to hunt,
kill and skin two alligators.
Why? because there are too
darned many alligators and
their hides bring a good price
for making cowboy boots.
There are few restrictions.
All hunters must be at least 18
years old by August 15th.
Permits go on sale at 10 a.m.
June 12th and continue until
noon June 18th. The state says
they will issue 4500 permits.
Applicants can pick up the
license at any county tax collec-
tors office or any retail outlet
that sells hunting and fishing
licenses.
See GATORS, page 4D


So Billy Donovan is leaving
Gainesville after back-to-back
NCAA titles and taking the
hour-and-a half drive down the
Florida Turnpike to work his
magic on, well, the Orlando
Magic.
Of course we can understand
the competitive nature causing
him to seek that next challenge.
To test his ability on the
biggest stage, with and against
the best the game has to offer.
Anyone with a passion for
their field, matched by their
aspiration to be the best, can see
the basic logic in this.
But we've heard this many
times before, with predomi-
nantly the same results.
Highly acclaimed and suc-
cessful college coaches wanting
to prove themselves among the
big boys.
Rick Pitino, Lon Kruger, Tim


Floyd each of them a stellar
coach on the college level who
couldn't quite cut it in the pro-
fessional game.
But that's all that means.
Failing on the pro level does-
n't mean someone isn't a good
basketball coach, it just means
they weren't right for that
game.
The fact that it's basketball is
really the only commonality
between the two.
Otherwise, college basketball
and the NBA are as different as
can be.
From expectations, to the
schedule, to the players a
great college coaches skills that
make him a great college coach
aren't the skills of a great pro-
fessional coach.
It's kind of like the difference
between the play-by-play man
on a radio broadcast of a sport-

ing event, and one on a televi-
sion broadcast.
The radio broadcaster is the
narrator, kind of like a teacher.
His listener's can't see the
action, so it has to be described
in as great detail as possible so
the audience can fully under-
stand and "see" the game taking
place.
A television broadcaster
doesn't have to be quite so
"hands-on" and detailed, since
his audience is watching the

game right along with him.
He just has to keep us inter-
ested with some interesting
information and keep us gener-
ally appraised of what's going
on.
The radio broadcaster is like
the college coach.
He is the detail guy, the
teacher, the one who really has
to guide his charges.along his
audience being a group of teen-
aged athletes.
He's sought them out,
recruited them, watched over
them, taught them the game,
acted as both coach, mentor
and father figure to these chil-
dren who are becoming adults.
A pro coach is like the televi-
sion broadcaster he's basical-
ly just the ring-master of an
audience who he really just
needs to keep interested and
aware of what's going on.
He hasn't necessarily sought
his players out, recruited them
to any great degree they've
generally been handed to him.
Their level of talent and
cohesiveness is a matter of if
his general manager has the
ability to make some good draft
picks, trades and has the salary-
cap room to get the right
pieces.
And once he has those play-
ers, they know the game and
don't need the teaching or the
watching over or the father fig-
:uring.
I say that subjectively, of
course, because while they
likely do need all those things,
don't tell them that.
There's also the job security.
Sure, if a college coach isn't
cutting it, he won't be long for
the job, but their is generally a
much longer leash in college
athletics than in the pros.
If Donovan can't get the
Magic into and past the first
round of the playoffs in the
next few seasons, his profes-
sional career could be over
before his first contract has
even been fulfilled although
he'd still be getting paid an
awful lot.
He wants to make the jump,
to test himself.
I can understand that thought
-process andwish him all the
luck in the world.
It's just that he had a good
thing going in Gainesville.
He had built his program up
to phenomenal heights,, and
while his prized class that won
him two championships is
gone, the drawing power of the
Gators must be at incredible
levels.
Don't tell me he couldn't
have recruited classes over the
next few years to both keep his
team among the college elite
and challenge for more net-cut-
ting ceremonies.
So in the question of who
does he aspire to be, Tim Floyd
or Dean Smith, Billy Donovan
has given us his answer.

approach."
Last year's freshmen that showed that right
approach, along with Levine, were left-hand-
ed pitchers Jeff Bloomer and Andrew
Barbosa, along with infielders Brien Coppola
and Hunter Reed making them the only
returning Panthers and leaving a lot up in the
air.


"We'll have 34 at training camp and hope
to keep 25-26 for the spring roster," Hitt said.
"Everyone has a shot and there is no better
opportunity."
And keep in mind, the opportunity isn't
only for the players.
"I'm still a little down about the season,"
Hitt said. "It'll take a little while longer, but
when camp comes around and it starts up
again, the smile will be back and I'll be ready
to go."
With a lot of help from the Highlands.

Each person is limited to
one permit. If there are any
permits remaining, sales will
reopen at 10 a.m. June 19
and will continue until all are
sold. These additional per-
mits will cost $61.50. Each
permit allows the holder to
take two alligators.
Application can also be made
by calling 1-888-486-8356 or
on line at MyFWC.com
/license.
Anyone brave and daring
enough to kill (harvest) an
alligator must fill out and
send in an Alligator Harvest
Report Form. They say these
forms will help FWC biolo-
gists to monitor the impact of
annual alligator harvest.
The alligators have lived in
Florida for centuries and for
most of that time caused no
problem for humans.
But the human population
of Florida has grown tremen-
dously in recent years and
too many want to live in
waterfront homes. This
results in more frequent run-
ins with alligators.
There is always the poten-
tial for danger when humans
and alligators live in such
close proximity. Most
Floridians have learned to
live with the reptiles, there
are instances where conflicts


exist. Florida's Fish and
Wildlife Commission
receives more than 18,000
complaints about alligators
every year.
Most complaints are
resolved when the offending


alligator retreats to a more
preferred and isolated area.
Humans can avoid trouble by
giving the alligator a little
more room and respect.
