LP Growth

Management

Plan garners

more support

County Commission
to hear plan Tuesday
By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID When
the Lake Placid Growth
Management Committee
makes its presentation to the
board of county commission-
ers on Tuesday, it will have
the support of the Lake Placid
Chamber of Commerce.
The chamber board voiced
its approval of the Growth
Management Plan Thursday
morning in a unanimous vote,
and it submitted a resolution
of support to the Growth
Management Committee.
"We decided it certainly
sounded to the board to be in
the town of Lake Placid's
greater interest," Pam

The plan Chamber Pres.
will benefit
the town from a fiduciary
perspective, Karlson said,
because it will spread the
costs of running the town
over a larger area by bringing
in new landowners and prop-
erties.
"It will spread the cost of
the town's infrastructure over
lands that will ultimately be
part of the town of Lake
Placid," Karlson said, "rather
than the current scenario
where the town nucleus,
being mostly made up of
business owners, are paying
the brunt of the taxes for the
public service that's provided
to the entire surrounding
area."
Karlson complimented the
committee on their two years
of work on the plan, and said

Triathlon meeting is geared toward beginners, children

Information briefing for second Heartland Triathlon is Thursday


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING There's nothing
gross about motor skills the fun-
damental building blocks of locomo-
tor movements.
Say what? ,
"Gross motor skill development is
the name of the ganie foirchildren,"
said Cherie Starr, 'lornda Hospital
fitness center manager and
Heartland Triath on committee
member.
The skills inclu e walking, run-
ning, jumping, hoping, galloping,
skipping, leaping,; throwing, swim-
ming, catching and striking.
Adults exercise 'for health while
children play became they enjoy it,
unwittingly benefit g from physical
exertion and social i teraction.
Triathlon organized, want to focus
on that fun factor to attract children
of all fitness levels to participate in
TriKidz, a new addition to the
Heartland Triathlon.


"As a parent and fitness motivator
for the past 23 years, I have seen
physical activity in children
change," Starr said.
Adult competitors range from
elite athletes (and organizer) such as
Patrick High, who qualified a third
time for the world's most grueling
triathlon Ironman Hawaii to a
pair of tubby News-Sun reporters
and their editor.
Everybody's race is personal,
whether they strive just to finish or
to best the course record of one hour,
two minutes, seven seconds set
by High, who's tapped to tear down
the course's infamous, take-no-pris-
oners one-hour barrier.


The triathlon committee wants the
kids to just come out, have fun and
enjoy playing with other children,
Starr said.
Her mission is to help them and
adult beginners. She's hosting three
training sessions per week until the
July 15 race.
At 6 p.m. Monday at Lake Placid
High School pool and 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday at Seascape at Florida
Hospital Heartland Medical Center
in Sebring, she works with the chil-
dren and cycling skills.
Adult bike training is at 5:30 p.m.
Thursday at the Seascape parking
lot and 6:30 p.m. at Sebring High for
swimming.
"We get a lot of concerns about
the swim," Starr said. "Stuff like,
'my child's not a good swimmer'
kind of thing."
Other questions range from
triathlon fundamentals to equipment.
Starr and High will answer ques-
tions during an information briefing

cles during organized training for TriKidz, a new addition to the Heartland
Triathlon.


at 7 p.m. Thursday at Florida
Hospital.
"What I do is for first timers,"
Starr said. "I try to capture the ones
who are afraid or think they're not
fast enough."
She encouraged families to come
out, learn more and watch a demon-


station of the transition process by a
young triathlete.
"Any child can do this race," she
said, encouraging families to bring
their children's friends also.

A banner history of America
AP museum to show flags on Flag Day


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK A collec-
tion of American flags will be
on display in the Depot
Museum in downtown Avon
Park on Flag Day (Thursday),
thanks to Steve and Nell
Roberts of Ridge Florist, who
own the flag collection, and
to Wally Randall for organiz-
ing the exhibit.
The flags represent the his-
tory of America. "Each flag
will have a different number
of stars and different configu-
rations," Randall said. "And
information will be available
about each flag."
Included in the display will
be the "Flag of Fifteen
Stripes," reflecting the time
when Congress called for
each state to be represented
by both a star and a stripe.


Such a flag flew during the
War of 1812 and it inspired
the writing of "The Star-
Spangled Banner."
The museum is open from
10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more
information, call Larry Levey,
president of the Historical
Society of Avon Park, at 385-
8618 or the museum at 453-
3525.
Randall, by the way, pre-
sented a program on June 3 at
the museum called, "Flags of
the New World." A man with
a strong interest in history
and patriotism, he has made a
career out of offering flag
programs to interested
groups. He also heads up the
July 4 fireworks committee in
Avon Park, something he has
done for the past 20 years.

In a flag program last week at the Depot Museum in Avon Park, Wally Randall and his wife,
Paula, show off the 'Flag of Fifteen Stripes,' from a time when Congress said each state

Double drowning results in a d blessing

Double drowning results in a mixed blessing


By ROMONA WASHINGTON
Executive Editor
SEBRING It was a dou-
ble tragedy two weeks ago
when former Venus teens
Logan and Lorne Wilson
drowned near their home at
Weiss Lake in Cherokee
County, Ala. It was a tragedy
that resulted in a mixed bless-
ing.
Sue Miller, the boys' grand-
mother, was pleasantly sur-
prised and felt blessed to
learn that the boys' father
immediately agreed to the
donating of Logan's organs.
Lorne was found soon enough
to allow for his organs to be
donated.
The tragedy occurred May
24 when the boys had gone to


the lake to fish. Logan, 16,
had fallen from a wooden pier
into the lake and Lorne, 14,
jumped in to try to save him.
Miller said a man, who was
also a neighbor of the family,
was standing a few feet away
from the boys. When he saw
Logan fall in, he started run-
ning for the boys and yelled to
Lorne, warning him not to
jump. "We don't know if
Lorne didn't hear him or if it
was just a natural instinct to
try to save his brother," Miller
said.
Another man fishing from a
boat in the lake tried to get
Logan. The current in the
lake, which was fed by a river
and a channel, was so strong
that it pulled Logan under


twice. Lorne was immediately
swept away by the current.
The fisherman was able to
finally get Logan into the boat
and up on the bank where
medics and good samaritans
worked on him for more than
an hour to no avail. Lorne's
was found the next day, a few
miles from the incident.
"The boys were so close.
When you saw one of them,
you'd see the other one,"
Miller said. She explained
that the family moved to
Alabama a year ago.
"The boys had had a little
trouble here in school. They
needed more one-on-one
teaching than they were get-
ting. Up there, they were
doing great. Their grades had


turned around. They loved
living in the country and were
very happy. It was what they
needed.
Miller said the coroner had
told her that even the
strongest swimmer wouldn't
have been able to survive the
currents of Weiss Lake. "He
said the lake has always been
like that. It's excellent for
fishing tournaments with
channel boats, but that's about
it," she said to have been told.
According to the Cherokee
County Herald, the water in
the area where the boys were
fishing is 30 feet deep in some
places.
Despite the fact the boys
had only lived in Centre, Ala.,


for a year, there were many
people who came to pay their
last respects at their funeral.
"Both principals, all of their
teachers, both bus drivers, all
of their friends, everyone
showed up. I was impressed
with how many people
showed up for the funeral. It
was unbelievable and a bless-
ing," Miller said.
Miller said the coroner
explained organ donations to
her son-in-law and told him to
take some time to think about
it. "He didn't take the time.
He gave the instructions
before he got to the door to
leave. Because of his quick
actions, 15 people have a
chance at a new life. That's a
blessing in its own," she said.


Logan, who was born in
Avon Park, was a freshman at
Cherokee County High
School. Lorne, a native of
Arcadia, was an eight-grade
student at Centre Middle
School.
They are survived by their
parents, Dennis and April
Wilson; and their grandpar-
ents, Homer Wilson of Venus
and Sue Miller of Lake
Placid.
The Logan and Lorne
Wilson Trust Fund has been
established to help any patient
in need of an organ transplant
who can't afford the travel
expenses. Donations can be
made at any Regents Bank.

Use of banners on agenda for meeting


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK It was
this past April that. code
enforcement officers caused a
stir with businesses along
U.S. 27 saying they might be
in jeopardy of violating land
development regulations in
regard to a myriad of banners,
flags and other outdoor dis-
plays.
The matter was turned over
to the Avon Park Planning and
Zoning Commission. That
board will take up the discus-
sion Tuesday evening at its
meeting in the Avon Park City
Council chambers. City
Manager C.B. Shirey will ask
the commission for its inter-
pretation of the land develop-
ment regulations, and whether


or not they apply to the ban-
ners and streamers now on
display.
The current ordinance says
that signs consisting of one or
more banners, flags, pen-
nants, ribbons, spinners,
streamers or captive balloons
may be allowed on a tempo-
rary basis in connection with
a special event. It also
includes "other objects or
materials fashioned in such a
manner as to move in the
wind as well as searchlights
used to promote a business or
attract customers.
Such items are to be used
by permit and may only be
used up to 30 days.
The issue as to whether the
banners, streamers and other
such attention attracting


devices were lawful under
city statute, came to light
after code enforcement offi-
cers were asked about such
displays in what was
described as a neighborhood
business dispute.
Code enforcement officers
contacted a number of busi-
nesses, including many of the
car dealei~hips along the busy
highway and were met with a
less than enthusiastic
response.
When confronted by angry
business owners, Donald

Remember
SWhen The Word

"Service" Meant

Something?
We remember when people took the time to
serve others. Our family has been helping
families here for many years. A our town
has grown, we have grown too, with more
. specialized services, such as out-of-town
arrangements, pre-arrangements, cremations
and a grief recovery program. Even though
we have grown, our dedication to service is
still the same as it was years ago. And, we
think that's really something.

Special to the News-Sun
A year after the Veterans
Administration data breach,
Computerworld recaps the sit-
uation and offers five lessons
the government learned in
order to safeguard personal
information: focus on data
encryption within govern-
ment.
The magazine suggests that
the VA has implemented
stronger breach notification
guidelines. The FBI and other
agencies are still working the
VA to assist in the detection
of fraud.
The focus now is to pay
- closer attention to .data reten-
tion, classification and mini-
mization of files. The VA
must determine how long
records will be kept on file
and under what classification.
Further, how much data needs
to be retained, and how to
best destroy what is not
required to be maintained.


Stronger remote access
policies have been put in
place, granting more authority
to Chief Information Officers
in government agencies.
Much of the information
maintained in files relate to
health and finances and other
personal information.
The publication notes,
"Under a bill passed last year,
the CIO's post at the VA has
been elevated to the rank of
an assistant secretary. The
move was designed to give
the CIO's office more clout
and enforcement authority
within the agency."
The data stored on govern-
ment computers at the
Veterans Administration and
the branch offices contain
personal information on every
veteran in the VA benefits
system, the surviving spouses
and children. The information
retained in the files also con-
tain information regarding


medical providers outside the
VA system, such as the physi-
cians' unique personal identi-
fication numbers used to
identify medical practitioners
for insurance and Medicare
purposes.
Joseph A. Dionne,
Highlands County Veteran
Services officer, is pleased
with the increased safeguards
now in place.
It still remains imperative,
however, for veterans to con-
tinue to be diligent regarding
their own personal financial
accounts, continues Dionne.
The veteran or the veteran's
family should continue to
monitor all financial accounts
as to any unauthorized
changes in the accounts.

Muddy feet and blossoming blisters


I am so tired and sore
today I hardly know
where to begin.
Every muscle aches,
my left thumb has a blis-
ter, and the top of my
head (how could I have
been so stupid as to not
wear a hat) is sunburned
bright red.
What brought me to
this pathetic condition? I
helped drill a water well
yesterday, working with
Jimmy Roberts and his
son Heath whose nick-
name is Buckshot. They
are part of the family that
owns and runs Lewis
Well Drilling Inc.
The most important
thing I learned in the


T FFINARU IT
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher nffley


course of the day is that while a machine
does most of the work, it takes a human's
back (and shoulders and biceps) to get the
job done. Well drilling, in other words,
belongs to the young.
Here's why.
To create a hole in a solid, what is there
has to be removed.
In Highlands County that means dealing
with sand, which is layered below us for
hundreds of feet.
The working end of the hydraulic rotary
rig does two things simultaneously, it
bores out a hole with a rotating bit while
displacing the drilled sand by forcing it to
the surface with a stream of high pressure
water.
But just getting rid of the sand isn't
enough, the walls of the hole have to be
protected and strengthened, otherwise the
sides would just collapse when the drill
shaft is removed.
This is done by using something called
drilling fluid, although old timers have a-
better word for it, they call it mud. The
iudiidcomes dry pack-fd in bags and is
added to the water that is forced through


the drill. Slung 360
degrees inside the bore
hole it coats the walls,
adding stability to the
sand, while letting water
through.
In order to have
enough water and mud to
get the job done, a pit
about three feet square
and three feet deep is dug
off to one side before.
drilling starts. It is then
filled with water and the
drilling mud is added as
the job progresses.
A hose runs from the
pit to the drilling rig
through a pump that pro-
vides 65 pounds of pres-
sure, forcing water at 150
gallons a minute.


A shallow channel is dug from the pit
to where the well is to be drilled. This is "
to guide the water and sand displaced by
the drilling away from the well site and
into the pit.
Only you don't want the sand to reach A
the pit because it will fill up. Which is .
where the pain and suffering come in. .:
My job was to keep shoveling the sand
out of the channel. This is done by bend-
ing over and keeping the shovel parallel .
to the ground. Scooping through the
water, I would lift the shovel up, drain off
the water and sling the sand to the side. It
was a task that had to be done during the
entire drilling process.
It got old in a hurry. Especially as the .
sand changes the deeper we drilled. I
quickly learned that the finer the grain,
the heavier the sand. Which actually was -
good news because as the shovelfuls had
gotten heavier I'd thought it was me get- News-Sun photo by'KATARA SIMMONS

The Avon Park Community Center was filled Thursday
night with stories, laughter, good food, awards and plenty of
socializing as the Avon Park Chamber of Commerce hosted
its annual awards banquet.
Life-size ponies stood ready to entertain guests at the
makeshift barnyard. Before the banquet began, western-
dressed guests marveled at how real looking the motorized
ponies looked. The theme of course was a country hoe-
down.
Not only were chamber directors recognized for their
service, but so were volunteers who had served
on committees.
The big awards of the evening went to: Julie
Diaz Nichols was named Director of the
Year; Park Elementary School received the
Community Service Award; Adelaide
Shores took home the Beautification of
the Year Award; Long's Air Conditioning
received Business of the Year; and
Harold "Bud" Worden was named
Citizen of the Year.
Director Kari Long McGrath had
words of wisdom to share with those
in the audience that were befitting to
everyone. To quote the famous Will
Rogers, "Even if you're on the right
track, you'll get ran over if you just sit

Short speech not enough time to convey life lessons


A few weeks ago, I was
asked to speak at a banquet
3TON honoring the academic
accomplishments of minority
students.
EL I do not mind public
speaking, but this particular
event made me very nervous.
I was nervous because I
annually attended the same
banquet for seven years until
last year when I graduated
from high school. Being an
attendant at an event and
speaking at an event are two
completely different roles
with different responsibili-
ties.


SAccording to the program,
I only had two minutes to
reflect upon my academic
career, life in general, and
my future plans. So I decided
to attempt to cover it all in
About three to five minutes. I
began by telling the students
where I attend college and
then I worked my way back


from there, hop-
ing to illustrate
with my words
the path that I
had taken to get
where I am
today.
I encouraged
the students to
believe in them-
selves no matter
what others my
say or think
about them and
to hold tight to


On My Mind
Georgia Dawkins


their faith no matter what it
is.
Many people look at the
person I am today and they
automatically assume that I
have always been this kind
and loving person, when in
fact I used to be very ugly
and disobedient.
The Georgia that people
know today has evolved from
someone that was difficult to
even be around and even


more difficult to
like. Up until the
time I started
high school, I
was a very dis-
turbed child. I
was violent and I
had a horrible
attitude. I did
well in school,
but my attitude
and my mouth
always seemed
to pull me down.
The mistakes I


made early in life are the
same mistakes that I see
many young people and
even some adults making
today. They allow other peo-
ple to influence their behav-
ior. They spend too much
time living for others and
they fail to enjoy the life that
belongs to them.
After my speech, I felt
guilty because I had not told
those students everything I

-o By the time you read this,
the Senate will probably, have
i voted on the immigration
- reform bill that has been a
large part of the news and the
i* M- way-too-early candidate
debates. Depending on who
you talk to, this bill either
.. will solve our existing prob-
. lems with illegal immigration
or bring about the end of the
world as we know it.
If I have to pick a camp
I'm leaning towards the end-
of-the- world people.
~- a The whole illegal immigra-
tion debate puzzles me to a
degree. People break the law
to come into this country, and
we have some kind of obliga-
tion to help them benefit
-- from it? I'm not trying to be
cold, but I thought we had
Slaws for a reason.
S- Yes, there are exceptions
S- to the rule. We are not
addressing exceptions, like
someone fleeing persecution
or a life-threatening situa-
tion. We're talking about
people coming into the coun-
try because they want to ben-
efit from United States jobs
,-. -,- and entitlements without giv-
ing up being citizens of their
own countries.
S The Republican Party's
.- wishy-washy stand on this
was the straw that broke the
camel's back for me. There
are other issues that are more
S worrisome to me than illegal
- .immigration. But their han-
dling of this issue is close to
S - - how they have handled other
- issues I care about they've
abandoned principles.

Laura Ware
The Republican Party is
even pushing Rudy Gulliani
as a candidate a man whose
personal life is troubling and
who holds beliefs that would
make any Democrat proud.
But he's fine on money
issues, so leaders will ignore
the other stuff. Problem is,
the stuff they're ignoring is
the stuff I care about.
As I said, last straw. I am
now not a member of any
political party.
But back to illegal immi-
gration. One thing I read
today that bugged me about
this bill: according to
Reuters, Senator John
Cornyn (R-Texas) offered an
amendment that would forbid
illegal immigrants who
ignored deportation orders
"and other felons" from par-
ticipating in the legalization
program.
Sounds reasonable, doesn't
it? Not to supporters of the
bill, who claim that it would
hurt illegals whose only
crime was to come to the
United States looking for
work.
So we want people who
consistently ignore our laws
and commit felonies to get
legalized? Anyone else
besides me scratching their
head?
I cannot conclude this col-
umn without talking about
something my friend Barry


Foster reminded me of.
Apparently there is an
amusement park in El
Alberto, Mexico. Among the
attractions, there.is I am
not kidding a "Night
Border Crossing
Experience."
El Alberto is nowhere near
the border according to
articles I read, the place is
somewhere between 700 and
1,000 miles from the U.S.
border but over the years
the town lost a number of its
population as people went
border hopping.
In order to promote com-
merce and population, the
town got financing from the
Mexican government and
built the park. As part of the
fun, they decided to give
tourists a chance to experi-
ence life as an illegal.
The experience takes about
four hours and consists of
traveling at night through
land towards the "border." It
isn't completely accurate -
there's no danger of your
guide dumping you in the
middle of nowhere and you
aren't going to really get shot
(though blanks are shot as
part of the experience). If
you get caught, you don't get
deported and you don't get to
participate in an amnesty
program. It's just a game.
Trouble is, the real thing
isn't.

futures. I feel like I robbed
them of the privileges that I
had learned to take advantage
of; I learned to learn from the
mistakes that others around
me made.
Once I learned to live for
Georgia, I found peace. I
found peace in my relation-
ships, in my faith, and in
myself but the most impor-
.tant thing is I learned to
enjoy life. I began to receive
that fact that the past is the
past and in order to live a
prosperous life I must live
for today.

There should be no
illegal immigrants
Editor:
Our great U.S. Senate (I
use the word "great" with
trepidation) is going to
debate the illegal immigra-
tion issues for two weeks.
Meanwhile, worthwhile leg-
islation just rides along in
this wake of "Hot Air." (I
have other terms for it, but
doubt it would be printable).
They will be attempting to
decide the status of approxi-
mately 12 million illegal
immigrants while the abor-
tion clinics are running.
Where are their priorities?
I suggest that we not mur-
der, so far, 44 millions
unborn children, and there
would be no need of illegal
immigrants. Had these abort-
ed babies been allowed to
live andggrow up, how many
more residents would now be
citizens of this great country
and in all probabilities speak
English?
I pray every day for our
president and our country.
While I disagree frequently
with our president, would
you rather have John Kerry
or Al Gore?

Sistahood is a group of
women bonding together for
a common goal to uplift,
motivate, share, serve and
love each other through anxi-
eties, fears, hopes and
dreams.
The Sistahs of Vision
recently attended a three-day
women's conference spon-
sored by renown speaker and
author and pastor Paula
White at Without Walls
International Church
in Tampa.
These women returned to
Avon Park with a "spirit of
boldness." One.by one they
shared their experiences. It
was awesome to see the
women who were shy step-
ping up to the microphone
testifying, singing, praising
and worshipping.
The demure first lady of
Vision, Willette
Conner, stepped up to the
podium and delivered a
strong sermon, and spoke
about hearing the 23rd
Psalm delivered by gospel
singer Donnie McKurklin
like never before. She was
reminded by the verse that
states that "goodness and
mercy" are following us in
our daily lives. Her vibrant
delivery was met with a
standing ovation.
The dynamic Sistahs of
Vision are rejuvenated to
spread the good news of
faith, hope and love with
determination to touch the
lives of others, especially our
youths.


Em~pg~r~ns


I hang out with the Sistahs
of Greater Bethel, Lake
Placid, the event was a
Women's conference and
brunch held at the Sebring
Civic Center.
Dynamic sistah, mother,
educator, motivator and
woman of God, Alencia
Wilson, of
Faith Pentecostal, was the
speaker. She was not only
inspiring but encouraging.
She spoke about the battles
of life she has had to face
and noted that her goal is to
be used by God in multiple
capacities. She said without
faith, it is impossible to
please God, and that he
rewards those who seek him.
=Her family was faced
with many battles within
their lives. In 1992 her hus-
band was diagnosed with
cancer of the heart palate.
Then in 2001 she was inflict-
ed with a gall bladder prob-
lem. She had major surgery,
which almost cost her her
life.
As if that wasn't enough


suffering for one family, her
youngest son had to have a
tumor mass removed from
his head.
The testing of faith did not
end there. While she was
recovering from surgery, she
was notified that her oldest
son, who is serving in the
military, was injured in a
military accident and two of
his team members were
killed. His roommate had
succumbed to injuries
received when his jugular
was cut.
Ms. Wilson, with sutures
still in, went on a 26-hour
journey to see, support and
pray for her son. She said
that the deaths of her son's
teammates had psychologi-
cally affected him.
Believing God's word that
she will live and not die, she
declared it over her family.
Alencia said for many, it is
not easy to believe when
you're faced with difficult
situations. It is more easy to
believe when everything is
going right. She said faith is
the substance of things hoped
for.

quette advisorfor Faith

The men were good company. Roberts is

he has a good sense of humor.
When I asked what they liked best about
the job Roberts said one of things was seeing
things no one else has ever seen. By this he
meant what came up through the drill.
Besides all colors and textures of sand and
clay, he as often found shark's teeth and once
a cypress tree. When you think of how old
these things are, being buried as deep as they
are, he said, it really is amazing. Especially
because no human had ever seen them before.
In that he echoed his father-in-law, James
Lewis, who founded the business 21 years
ago after working for La Grow 25 years.

Summer is the Best Time for Annual Physicals
Dr. Ware Medical Minute


Now that summer is here and our
winter residents have left until fall, why
not think about
getting your
annual physical?
It is easy to
forget your own
health during our
busy days but as
the season ends
we need to take
time out and take
care of ourselves.
This is especially important as we
reach age 50 and sometimes at age 40
depending on our family history and
gender.
June is Men's Health Awareness
Month. Gentlemen, have you had your
prostate evaluation? Beginning at age
50, men need to think about having an
annual prostate evaluation.
Ladies, are you .up to date on
your women's health? Have you


had your mammogram or periodic
repeat mammogram according to the
recommended guidelines? Have you had
your full gynecological exam with your
primary care physician to go along with
the mammogram? Have you had a bone
density test? When was the last time you
had your bone density tested to prevent
or treat your osteoporosis?
And then we also need to think
about colorectal screening for cancer.
Have you had you evaluation? Do you
have a first degree relative with cancer
that requires earlier screening? Are you
current with your colonoscopy or do you
need a repeat evaluation?
Have you had a cholesterol and lipid
panel to reduce your risk for heart disease
and stroke? Does it need to be rechecked
if you are on medication? Ladies, have
you had your thyroid checked? Have
you had your blood pressure checked?
Are you overweight? When was
the last time you had your blood sugar

checked? The potential for recognized
diabetes can remain unnoticed with
overweight individuals as they become
resistant to their own bodies insulin? Are
you on an appropriate diet and exercise
regimen prescribed by your doctor for
you?
Do you have a heart mummer, bruit
in your back or belly that needs to be
listened to by a doctor and appropriate
tests run?
Do you have an existing medical
condition that needs to be rechecked?
High blood pressure and diabetes
should be checked at least quarterly. Do
you smoke? Have you had your annual
chest x-ray and periodic lung function
test? Have you seen a physician for
one condition but not seen him for a
complete annual physical for screening
other diseases? Now is the time to call
and set up an appointment with your
doctor.


Dr. Donald Ware is a Family Practice
Physician at Highlands Medical Group. Dr.

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop


Poetry in

motion

I wouldn't call myself a
poet. But, I've written a
few poems over the years.
One I recall had to do
with motivating my sons
to make their morning
routine more fluid rather
than me reminding them
of the next step. It had a
bit of humor and helped
them see through my eyes
a little more clearly.
Other poems have
expressed my heart to my
husband. Still others have
been written to give voice
from my heart to God.
One such poem had sat
dormant in a desk drawer
for over a decade.
Upon finding it, I read
it and thought of when I
had penned it. It brought
to mind what was going
on in my life at the time.
In hindsight, I was able to
see clearly what, at the
time, was yet to be
unfolded.
I wrote the poem as an
expression of my heart to
God not knowing that he
was about to birth into
reality my desire to write.
That reality would be a
process that would eventu-
ally lead to this column ...
and, later, other columns,
articles and a book.
The poem breathed my
soul's assurance that when
"my heart within me
speaks, it's the Lord who
is stirring in my soul."
The poem, "Stirring in My
Soul," affirmed that I am
assured of his stirring
when "my all is His
alone."
When I uncovered the
poem, my husband read it
and thought it might be
able to be put to music.
He didn't tell me his plan;
but, eventually gave it to a
musician friend who put it
to music on the spot.
Suddenly, the words of my
heart that had been set in
motion poetically now
flowed musically allowing
others to express the same
sentiments in a worship
song.
And that is how our
lives are to be expressed.
A poem that is set into
motion by our actions, as
is noted in Ephesians 2:
10, NIV,
"For we are God's
workmanship, created in
Christ Jesus to do good
works, which God pre-
pared in advance for us to
do."
I recently learned that
our English word "poem"
comes from the Greek
word translated "work-
manship." Consequently,
God is stirring in each
soul that belongs to him to
do good works that he has
already equipped us, gift-
ed us to do.
Imagine. We are God's
poetry, his rhythmical
composition a rhapsody
that should flow outward
to touch others. We should
be an expression of praise,
enthusiasm and excitement
in all of our actions.
Let's see ourselves as
poetry in motion and
get moving for him. Selah

Largest Shark that Ever Li ed


Florida Museum opens new shark

exhibit featuring ancient giant

Special to the News-Sun
GAINESVILLE At 60 feet long, Megalodon was the largest
shark that ever lived and a dominant marine predator. Sharks are at
risk today, with recent population declines attributed to humans.
Though Megalodon vanished 2 million years ago, its fascinating
story inspires lessons for science and shark conservation.
The Florida Museum of Natural History tells this remarkable
story in its exciting new national traveling exhibition,
"Megalodon: Largest Shark that Ever Lived," which opens
Saturday. The exhibition features a 60-foot-long walk-
through sculpture and highlights the evolution, biology and
misconceptions regarding giant prehistoric sharks.
include an opportunity for visitors to bring in their own
fossils to try and "Stump the Smithsonian Paleontologists"
while having the fossils identified. Other family fun and dis-
covery includes activities and interaction with area fossil club
representatives and Florida Museum researchers as well as
gallery walks with other local shark experts, including Mark
Renz, author of "Megalodon: Hunting the Hunted." Renz will give
a gallery walk at 11 a.m. followed by a book signing session from 12-
4 p.m.
"The Megalodon exhibit gi\es us the chance to
showcase current museum research and our
extensive paleontology collections." said
Florida Museum assistant director for
exhibits Darcie MacMahon. "'\ho can
imagine a 60-foot shark cruising all the
world's oceans? The evolution and
extinction of this giant beast capture our :.': .
imaginations and inspire us to learn '
about shark evolution in general and
the importance of shark conservation
today."
As unique as Megalodon \~as. so
too is the exhibition that tells the
story of this enormous crea-
ture. The exhibition sho\w-
cases both fossil and mod-
ern shark specimens as
well as full-scale models
from several collections.
Visitors enter a full-size
sculpture of Megalodon
through massive jaws and
discover this shark's historN and
the world it inhabited, including its
size, structure, diet, lifespan. relatives.
neighbors, evolution and e\tinclion.
"Megalodon: Largest Shark that E er Lited"
also provides details on impro% ing the health ot our
oceans and survival of threatened species. Recent
worldwide declines are attributed to commercial and
sport overfishing. Scientists estimate humans kill 100 mil-
lion sharks, skates and rays each year, and the life history) of
most shark species makes it difficult for populations to rebound. Florida Muse

The chain reaction brought on by a drought can go on for years


Hurricanes, tornados, fires and
floods bring up frightening images
of natural disasters in our minds.
These phenomenons usually come
on suddenly and with alarming
intensity. However, one of the nat-
ural disasters we are now facing
isn't one that generally comes to
mind drought.
That's probably because it does-
n't come on with fierce power and
abrupt force. Drought comes on
slowly and over a period of time.
However, it does have impacts that
can cause chain reactions over time.
According to the Wikipedia
Encyclopedia, drought is an extend-
ed period of months or years when
a region notes a deficiency in its
water supply. Generally, this occurs
when an area receives consistently
below average precipitation. For
most regions, drought is a normal,
recurrent feature of the climate.


An interesting thing happened the
other day that initiated this article.
Erin McCarta, lakes management
assistant, mentioned that even
though this year we have had more
rainfall than last year at this time,
we are in a drought. I asked myself,
how can that be? By May 2006, we
had received 3.34 inches of rain,
while 2007 totals for year-to-date
rainfall showed 5.62 inches. So, if
we have been getting more rain this
year than last, why the drought?
Even though rainfall totals in
2006 were among the driest on
record for east central Florida, there
was no drought that year.
Remember back to 2004/2005 -
we had several hurricanes, which
brought lots of rain. So even though
we didn't get much rain last year,
there was plenty of water in the
lakes and in our reserves.
Since water we receive from rain-


IIWnt '" I "
News From
The Watershed

fall replenishes the supply that we
have available, its all an issue of
supply and demand. Our water is
supplied from underground
aquifers, lakes and reservoirs. As
the rain continues to fall, it con-
stantly replenishes the supply.
However, without the rain, the sup-
ply diminishes and the result is a
water shortage.


Humans play a role in the
drought process as well. We require
water to live and in drought situa-
tions we must reduce our use so
that there is enough available to
meet our basic needs until rainfall
amounts return to normal. This situ-
ation may cause stress in some as
lifestyles may need to be adjusted.
In addition, many recreational
activities may not be available, such
as fishing and boating.
The consequences of drought can
be devastating to the economy.
Farmers may lose crops or produce
lower yields than usual and ranch-
ers may lose livestock. Businesses
such as the fishing and boating
industry may have difficulty selling
their goods as will those who
depend on agriculture, such as farm
machinery producers.
The environment is also impacted
in many ways. As you know,


Florida is experiencing a multitude
of wildfires right now mainly
because the vegetation is so dry.
Wildlife may not have enough
drinking water or food because their
water source has dried up. In some
cases, destruction of fish and
wildlife habitat has occurred.
Erosion is more likely as the wind
blows the dry soils. Wetlands may
be damaged or even destroyed in
many instances. Drought conditions
also lead to increased growth of
algae in lakes and ponds.
Even though drought doesn't
come upon us suddenly and with
deadly force, you can see that the
effects are far-reaching. We must
all do our part to conserve the water
we have and do the best we can
until the rains return.

Gilbert property in Sebring designated a Wildlife Habitat Site by NWF


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The National
Wildlife Federation
announces that the property of
Violet and Larry Gilbert in
Sebring has been certified as
an official Certified Wildlife
Habitat site. This achievement
contributes to the organiza-
tion's goal of certifying
100,000 sites by the end of
2007.
The property now attracts a
variety of birds, butterflies
and other wildlife while help-
ing to protect the local envi-
ronment. With the help of
NWF, many habitat enthusi-
asts have turned their yards
and open spaces into enticing
wildlife refuges.
NWF began the Backyard
Wildlife Habitat program in
1973 and has since certified
over 80,000 habitats nation-
wide. The majority of these
sites represent the hard work
and commitment of individu-
als and families providing
habitat near their homes, but
NWF has also certified more
than 2,700 schools and hun-
dreds of business and commu-
nity sites.
Certified habitats can also
be found everywhere from
post offices, hospitals and
places of worship to commu-
nity parks, corporate build-
ings and municipal facilities.
The average habitat is
between one-third and one-
half acre, but certified sites
range from urban balconies to
thousand-acre areas.
Any habitat enthusiast can
create a backyard habitat and
learn the rewards of garden-
ing for wildlife. NWF teaches
the importance of environ-
mental stewardship by pro-
viding guidelines for making
landscapes more hospitable to
wildlife.
To become certified, a
property must provide the
four basic elements that all
wildlife needs: food, water,
shelter and places to raise
young. In addition, the site
must employ sustainable gar-
dening practices.
Habitat restoration is criti-
cal in urban and suburban set-
tings where commercial and
residential development
encroaches on natural wildlife
areas. In addition to providing
for wildlife, certified habitats
conserve our natural
resources by reducing or
eliminating the need for fertil-
izers, pesticides or irrigation
water, which ultimately pro-
tects the air, soil and water
throughout our communities.
More information about
gardening for wildlife is
available at
www.nwf.org/gardenfor-
wildlife or by calling (800)
822-9919.
Creating habitats not only
helps wildlife, it can help
reduce global warming pollu-
tion and save money as well.
Burning fossil fuels to heat
and cool our homes and main-
tain our lawns releases carbon
dioxide into the atmosphere,
which is the main greenhouse
gas responsible for global
warming.
Replacing lawns with
strategically located trees and
other native vegetation can
insulate our homes from the
heat, cold and wind, reducing
our heating and cooling needs
and thus our carbon dioxide
emissions. And, unlike lawns,

mowers or fertilizers that
require fossil fuels to the

All of this adds up to
increased wildlife habitat,
reduction in excessive carbon
dioxide that causes global
warming and reduced energy
bills for homeowners. More
information about how gar-
deners can reduce the effects.


of global warming can be
found at ww.nw/f.org/

Habitats can produce other
financial rewards for home-
owners. Realtors will promote
the certified status of homes
for sale, because they see it as
an added selling feature. It's
an attractive element to many
potential home buyers look-
ing to share their landscape
with Mother Nature. Potential
homeowners who are attract-

ed to a house with a certified
habitat are also more likely to
maintain the habitat once they
take ownership.
NWF has received numer-
ous testimonials from pro-
gram participants who find
their efforts to create a habitat
rewarding and fun for the
whole family. As one partici-
pant wrote, "I am a beginner,
but judging from the many
birds, squirrels, butterflies
and rabbits, along with the


flowers blooming everywhere
in my yard, I must be on the
right track."
Every applicant receives
membership to the National
Wildlife Federation, including
a one-year subscription to the
award-winning National
Wildlife magazine with
inspiring wildlife articles and
amazing nature photography.
Certified participants also
receive a personalized certifi-
cate and quarterly newsletters


and are eligible to post
NWF's special outdoor sign
designating their yard or gar-
den as wildlife-friendly.
Few people understand how
just one person can make a
difference. David
Mizejewski, NWF naturalist
and host of Animal Planet's
"Backyard Habitat," says,
"It's easy to feel that there is
no hope for wildlife in our
modern world of smog, traffic
and asphalt."

Real Estate
Market
Charles Kovaleski

Primer for

first-time

home sellers

No matter how long we
have owned and lived in
our homes, selling proper-
ty is never easy. We are
all emotionally-tied to the
memories we have created
in our homes from
raising families to hosting
holiday gatherings, and
can feel wistful when
recalling them.
Whether it's a buyer's
or a seller's market, prop-
erty owners can make the
selling process much less
painful by heeding the
following suggestions
leading up to putting the
home on the market:
Put your sales team
together. Most consumers
think a real estate team is
only essential when buy-
ing a home, but it's equal-
ly critical to assemble a
team of professionals
when you sell it. The
team should include a
Realtor to help you mar-
ket your home, an inspec-
tor (for a second opinion,
if necessary), and a real
estate attorney to guide
you through the sales con-
tract, seller disclosure,
title insurance, inspection
reports and more. -
See SELLERS, page 2

SELLERS
Continued from 1
Rounding out your team is
an appraiser, who can give a
solid assessment of your
home's value, and a surveyor,
who can clarify property
boundaries requested by a
buyer or title agency.
Set the asking price. The
best pricing resource is the
"Comparative Market
Analysis," which measures
your home to comparable
homes, or "comps," in your
neighborhood either currently
on the market or that have
been sold in the last six
months. Information such as
how long a house stayed on
the market; how close the
sale price was to the asking
price and other notes such as
number of bedrooms and
bathrooms can be found in a
comp document. A profes-
sional appraisal of your home


will also give you an unbi-
ased opinion of your home's
fair market value, which can
be influenced by interest
rates, housing market condi-
tions, supply and demand and
the economy.
Market your home. If you
are planning to use a Realtor,
several types of listing agree-
ments are available to you.
An "open listing," for
instance, allows the seller to
list the home with several
agents, paying a commission
to the first one who brings
about a satisfactory sale.
Although it may be appealing
to cast a wide net using an
open listing, they don't offer
much incentive to Realtors
and can't be included in a
Multiple Listing Service.
In an "exclusive listing,"
an agent hired is the only
agent who will receive a
commission; an "exclusive
right to sell" guarantees the
agent a commission no mat-


ter who finds a buyer, be it
the seller's or the buyer's
agent.
Prepare your home for
sale. The implications of a
home sale can create strong
emotions for some. The best
advice is to get organized,
and develop a clear, rational
understanding of the home-
selling process.
For many, the physical
preparation of selling a home
is easier than the psychologi-
cal preparation. Painting,
cleaning and repairing are
profitable essentials, and
cleaning out closets and the
garage are critical to selling a
home. Get your home into
near perfect condition before
exposing it to the market.
Weight all reasonable
offers. When a prospective
buyer makes a formal offer in
the form of a "contract for
purchase and sale," or "pur-
chase and sale agreement,"
remember that the contract


itself can't hurt you until
you sign it. Once signed, the
offer is contained in a legal-
ly-binding document.
For this reason, be sure to
have your real estate attorney
review any contracts you
receive from any prospective
real estate buyers before
you sign them.
Prepare for closing. The
final step in selling your
home is the closing, when
you get paid, the buyer
receives the deed to your
home and the transfer of
ownership takes place. At
this meeting, all the contract
details are finalized and all
the agreements between you
and the buyer are executed
- and the time has come to
move on to the next home in
your life.

dent of Attorneys' Title

Dixie League


Warm-up


Heats Up


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.comi
SEBRING What started
out as a relatively casual
bridge from the Dixie League
season and the state tourna-

Thoughts of carting a team
of 10-11 year-olds to the far
corners of the state for a tour-
nament didn't seem like such
a great idea, both for the kids
and the coaches, so they set
about hosting their own.
"We got in touch with some
teams in the area and got a
great response," Cannon said.
"We thought, if they wanted
to get ready and also have the
advantage of playing on the

Nelson, Gibson lead



Bagwell at River Greens


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
AVON PARK The second stop on
the Sertoma Golf Tour brought it to
River Greens for the 38th Annual
Bagwell Invitational and the event saw
a familiar set up after the first day of
play, with an added surprise.
Under warm, sunny skies and light
breezes at the course, last year's men's
champion Lee White of Bartow found
himself in second place, carding a one-
under par 71 for the day, a week after
he qualified for the state amateur tour-
nament by shooting a 70 at Eagle
Brooke in Lakeland.
"It's a little tougher coming back
after winning it last year," White said.
"Everyone is gunning for you. But the
course is in great shape this year and
the greens are just perfect."
And even with the under-par score,
White was like any other golfer at the
height of their game when he admitted,
"I left a few shots out there. But I feel
good and am in good position going
into tomorrow."
The position he found himself in
with still half the field yet to finish,
was in third place behind fellow
Bartow resident Nic Thomas, who
carded a 70, and last year's runner up
Derek Nelson, who came in with a
three-under par 69 and was as self dep-
recating as White.
'I know every golfer
says that, no matter
how well they shoot, but
there were a few shots I
would have liked back.'
SKELSEY GIBSON

Defending Bagwell men's champion Lee White, above, unloads with his driver
on the 18th hole Saturday at River Greens Golf Course. White would card a 71
for the day, putting him in third place behind Derek Nelson of Palm Beach
Gardens and Nic Thomas of Bartow. Sebring's Heather Brownell, above left,
sets her ball flying with this iron shot toward the 18th green. Brownell shot an
89 for the day, which would have her in the thick of contention, except that
first-time entrant Kelsey Gibson shot a 74 to hold a substantial lead over the
women's field heading into Sunday's final round.


"I wasn't putting well at all today,
but I was hitting the ball real well over-
all," Nelson said. "I missed a few six-
footers and could have had a 65."
River Greens Golf Pro and
Tournament Director Jason Beatty has
seen enough of this tournament that he
felt confident the top three heading into
Sunday's second round were set.
"Unless we see some surprises later
in the day," he said, "I think these are
going to be the best scores of the day."
Nelson was last year's leader after
the first day as well, and knows what he
faces as he'll likely be teamed up with
White for the second straight year.
"I just have to go lower tomorrow,"


he said. "It helps that I was in the same
position last year, so now I know what
to expect and will be ready to do bet-
ter."
But as serious and focused as he
sounded, Nelson was definitely enjoy-
ing the day on the course.
"The conditions should be nice, so
I'll need to go low and shoot for anoth-
er 68 or so," he said. "But it's fun.
When you're making birdies it's fun."
On the girls side, it was a new
entrant that took the field by storm as
15 year-old Kelsey Gibson of
Thonotasassa carded a one-over-par 74
to hold a six-stroke lead over her near-

Front Row
John Bedell

Coach i.


also a


husband,


father

Did you ever have to make
up your mind? The Lovin'
Spoonful could have taught
Gator's coach Billy Donovan
a thing or two. In the 1960s
tune, John Sebastian said
"It's not often easy and not
often kind. Did you ever
have to make up your
mind?"
Of course, the sixties'
singer was describing two
girls. It was inspired by a
pair of girls at summer camp.
For the past few days,
Donovan's head has been
spinning like a teenage boy
meeting new girls at camp.
Didn't Eddie Munster's
head spin once in a while?
In Sebastian's song one of
the girls had "hair down to
here and plenty of money."
Fortunately for the coach,
both these girls have plenty
of money.
To most of us, Billy
Donovan is that young coach
crouching on the sideline. He
stares at the action looking
to gain any advantage for the
Orange and Blue. His back-
to-back NCAA champi-
onships have brought him to
the heights of coaching.
As sportswriters and sports
fans, we do not often think
of coaches as fathers or hus-
bands or moms or wives.
Coaches are just supposed to
pace the sidelines, glare at
officials and lead their teams
to victory. They work crazy
hours to get an edge on the
competition.
Former Georgetown bas-
ketball coach John
Thompson was known to call
opposing coaches in the wee
hours of the morning.
"Are you still working?"
he would ask. "If you aren't,
you won't beat me."
It is hard to mix that
image with a daddy reading
bedtime stories or making a
late night run to the conven-
ience story for milk.
Coaches are looking at
film late at night. They are
studying their next opponent.
Yet Donavan like many
coaches is also a husband
and a dad.
I cannot help but think
that those two roles played a
factor in that decision to stay
put. 42-year-old Billy and
his wife Christine have four
children. Two of them are
teenagers.
Six years ago, the
Donovans lost a baby. It was
stillborn. Many in the Gator
basketball family were
impressed at how the
Donovans handled that
tragedy. "God is good all the
time," the grieving young
dad said.
Donovan talked about his
family when he faced the
press Thursday for the first-
time since the big change of
heart. He said that his wife
had supported him on both
his decision to take the
Magic job and his decision

HISTORY LESSON

5 YEARS AGO
June 11, 2002: The Avon Park DixieYouth CityTournament championship game was a pitchers duel
that resulted in a 3-1 win for theTravis CrossonTree Service Reds over the Bill Jarrett Ford Indians. Buddy
Duke took the hill for the Reds, squaring off against Shevas Hicks of the Indians. And while Hicks struck
out 12 and gave up just one hit in his six innings of work, the Reds capitalized on two errors and a passed
ball to score their runs. Duke, meanwhile, struck out nine through five innings, allowing just one run
before Kyle Jackson worked the final inning to preserve the win and give the Reds the city title.

Can't decide, foot in mouth,

or a boot in the rear?


I have to backtrack and
take a moment to remove my
foot from my mouth after I
too hastily jumped on the
LeBron as the next Michael
bandwagon.
As it now seems, game 5
of the Eastern Conference
Finals was yet another of
those flashes of LeBron as
the next Michael.
Just a flash, as even
though the Cavs did win the
series over Detroit, James'
performance in the final
game against the Pistons and
in the first game of the NBA
Finals was anything but
"Jordan-like."
If his team wasn't scoring,
if the offense wasn't work-
ing, Michael would force the
issue attack, attack, attack.
And even though teams
knew he was going to take
over the offense, they still
wouldn't be able to stop him.
And it wouldn't be just
when they got onto the offen-
sive end he would ratchet
up his efforts defensively,
create turnovers and fast-
break opportunities.
LeBron has all the physical
tools to do those things,
we've seen the flashes of it.
But so far, the flashes
aren't adding up to the rar-
efied Air and I must have
gotten a little light headed to
think they had.
And while I admit to mak-
ing some irrational state-
ments which is kind of my
job, in a way we see again
that professional athletes are
better off not being heard.
Gary Sheffield's recent
comments that Major League
Baseball preferred cultivating
Latin American talent over
African American talent
because of "controllability"
was one such case to be sure.
There is a measure of truth
in what he said. in that, Latin
American players are A)
baseball fanatics and B) are
awfully anxious to get out of
rid stay out of their native
countries. "
The riches and prestige of
playing Major League
Baseball are certainly a great
lure, and anything that can be
done by someone with that
opportunity should be done.
But wouldn't that be the
case with anyone, from any-
where?
Black, white, Hispanic,
Asian if you want to be a
big-league ballplayer, you're
going to do your best, do
what needs to be done, to
reach that goal.
Although, in a way, what
Sheffield said could be seen
as self-depricating humor.
Saying that, "where I'm
from, you can't control us."
What is he, a Klingon?
Is he joining Steve Martin
and Dan Aykroyd as the
newest Czechoslovakian
Playboy?
I thought he was from
Tampa, but it sounds like he
lives with Flounder, Bluto,
Otter and Boone in Animal
House.
And then Twins outfielder
Torii Hunter joined in the
ridiculousness when he
chimed in with his spin.


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne


You can go to Latin
America and get that same
talent as a black player in
Compton and if he's in
Compton he gets drafted in
the first round he's going to
get two million dollars,"
Hunter said on Fox Sports
Radio. "If he doesn't pan out,
you're out two million dol-
lars but if you go to the
Dominican, Cuba, or whatev-
er and you can get a guy for
two thousand dollars and he
doesn't pan out you're only
down two thousand dollars."
OK, so a first round draft
pick, who is black and from
Compton, will get two mil-
lion dollars, and a Latin play-
er can be signed as a free-
agent for a few thousand -
there is some logic to that.
But are only black players
from Compton getting $2
million signing bonuses?
The Cubs just drafted Josh
Vitters from Chatsworth,
California with the third pick
of the draft.
He's a white guy that they
will likely pay a few million
to with the risk that he won't
pan out, and the team would
be out that money.
I may just be a dopey
white guy from the Midwest,
with a different perspective
from these black ballplayers
whom I respect for their
talent, ability and persever-
ance to make the major
leagues, my own lifelong
dream.
But this issue isn't just
about black and white, or
black and Latino it's com-
plicating something that is

actually even more simple.
If you have the talent to
make a team better, a major
league team will find you,
develop you and eventually
pay you a few million dollars
(either up front with a sign-
ing bonus or later on with a
contract, or both) and you
will play it's as simple as
that.

COACH
Continued from ID

to let it go.
Another championship
coach stepped down in part
due to family.
Bill Cowher left his job as
the Pittsburgh Steelers coach
after fifteen years. Money
was part of the situation but


family may have played a
role as well. The Cowhers
have three children and two
of the three are on the
women's basketball team at
Princeton Universtiy.
Even iron-jawed Bill
Cowher knew that he had
only a few years to spend
with those children before
they are gone and on their
own. It is a realization that
all parents face.

Caddy Shack (formerly Sunshine Boys) won the 70's and
over Florida Half-century Softball tournament at Lakeland on
May 4-5. Caddy Shack went undefeated, totaling four wins to
take the title. Front row: Left to right Kyle Saunders, Gary

So they next time you see
one of those coaches reacting
to a call with a contorted
face, remember he is proba-
bly going home to someone
that calls him "Honey" rather
than coach.
There may be several oth-
ers in the house that call him
dad.
Sometimes those factors
can be even bigger than a
professional challenge and a


pile of money. Sometimes
even a coach just wants to go
home.
It's kind of like that song
John Sebastian sang at
Woodstock, "Darling, Be
Home Soon." Or you might
think of that other song from
the Lovin, Spoonful. "Do
you believe in magic?"
Nah. I guess not.
