districts to the Wyndham Resort in
Orlando, including teams from much
larger schools to compete in numerous
competitions.
In over 250 different competitions -
ranging from forestry to livestock to
wood identification everything about


agriculture is covered.
As Avon Park Middle School FFA pres-
ident Brandon Gunn put it: you name it,
there's a competition for it.
This year's Avon Park students from
the middle and high schools brought a
team to compete in parliamentary proce-
dure, students to compete in the talent
competition 'and APMS FFA Vice

SEBRING Jim Parker tunes out
the music, but it's in him nonetheless.
He'll unknowingly tap his fingers
to the beat, and he reportedly-has
whistled the melody in his sleep.
Parker has been the "The Ice Cream
Man" about fi\e years.
"You have to be a little nuts to do
this," he said Friday while cruising a
Sebring neighborhood near DeSoto
City Road at the painfully slow speed
of about 7 mph.
Maybe because he can't outrun the
familiar sounds of the ice cream man,
he's working on a new method to
entice children of all ages to his yel-
low and multi-colored polka-dotted
van.
If you hear childhood favorites
such as "Pop Goes the Weasel" or
"The Ant's Marching Song," instead
of the usual tunes, don't worry he's
still got a freezer full of old-time clas-
sics such as ice cream sandwiches and
the new novelties bars such as Dora
the Explorer and Spiderman.
"I have customers in their 90s,"
Parker said while discussing
Pavlovian conditioning.
They range from pre-kindergarten
to post-retirement. Their tastes vary
accordingly the young like sour
treats such as "Cry Baby" and the
young at heart prefer fudge bars and
Drumsticks.
To accommodate those tastes,
Parker has an inventory of 27 ice


Micheal Williams, of Sebring, opens
his watermelon flavored ice cream
pop.

cream products and 25 "gourmet"
syrups for the shaved ice. He also
stocks hard candy, gum, Pixie Stix,
Slim Jims and other pre-packaged
products his customers ask for.
Parker's fleet includes two vehi-
cles: the van and a trailer towed by a
truck. His daughter Leslie Malone and
another couple are his employees.
"My goal is having kids nowadays
know what we had 50 years ago,"
Parker said, explaining he's in the
business to fulfill a dream more than
to fill his pockets. "I want to build a
rapport with the parents and school


teachers I deal with."
He said times have changed and he
must work extra hard to ensure the
parents are comfortable enough to
trust him with their children.
When he started, parents almost
always accompanied their children.
Now, his loyal customers allow their
kids to fly solo, knowing they'll
return with the correct change and the
ice cream they wanted.
Bernie, 12, Saydi, 9, and Chance, 5,
are as good as they come, Malone
said, of the Timm siblings who are
regulars on the Friday route.
"They're very outgoing, very
friendly and very courteous," Parker
said.
On a given evening, the ice cream
man will visit five or six neighbor-
hoods. Between the two vehicles,
they're able to cover the entire county
in a week.
"We love the ice cream guy," said
Dona Wall (age withheld), when
asked if she was buying for herself or
children. Then, to Malone, "I'm going
to do orange-mango like I always do."
Another loyal regular.
The ice cream man operates year-
round from noon until dusk. He'll hit
the businesses until 5 p.m. then tran-
sition to neighborhoods where chil-
dren and their parents' money are
waiting.
He's available for birthday parties
and other special occasions. He can
be reached at 381-0105.

LAKE PLACID -
Highway Park has come a
long way since its birth as a
haven for former sharecrop-

restarting their lives on their
own terms.
Lured by $25 lots offered
by developer Jack Simms,
blacks from Georgia, South
Carolina and other southern
states moved to the communi-

the Rev. Leroy McGahee
said.
"They came with nothing
and they came with the hope

reassembled them here.

Homeless coalition asks for funding

Gracie Goat conquers her



fear in 'Big Bike Race'


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevinshutt@newssun.com
It's not hard to get excited
about "Gracie Goat's Big
Bike Race," just as it's hard to
not get excited about the
Heartland Triathlon.
As a triathlon encompasses
three sports in one race,
"Gracie" is one part chil-
dren's book, one part sports-
manship lesson and one part
courage to overcome fears.
"What is the worst thing
that could happen if you do
try and don't learn to ride
your bike?" Grandma Goat
asks a sullen Gracie.
The story opens with the
kid chilling with her
Barnsville friends when
Howard Horse brags he's
entering the children's race
during the Summer Corn
Festival.
Excited by Howard's news,
they all decide to race and
form a team. Gracie commits
to the race, too.
But she has a secret she
Doesn't know how to ride.
With Grandma Goat's help,
Gracie conquers her fear of
the bike, learning to ride in
time for the race.
In the end, she doesn't win


July 15- Sebring


the big race. Rather, she gives
her water bottle to Howard,
who lost his to a jarring pot
hole. Gracie's sacrifice result-
ed in Howard's victory.
Gracie's a winner in her
own right she learns to
ride, she's a good teammate
and she finishes her first race.
Gracie's story is similar to
the untold stories that will
result from the children's
triathlon they're all win-
ners just for trying.
"Big Bike Race" is Erin
Mirabella's first children's
book and it's the first in her
Barnsville Sports Squad
series.
Mirabella represented the
United States in track cycling
at the 2000 and 2004
Olympics. She's seven
months pregnant with her first
child.
"I guess I'm Gracie," she


said during a phone interview
Thursday. "But, there's a little
bit of me in all the charac-
ters."
The next book, due in sum-
mer, is about Gracie's friend
Shawn Sheep, a soccer player
who receives a lesson about
sportsmanship.
Mirabella was inspired by
the strengths of fellow
Olympians and a desire to
draw more children to exer-
cise and its benefits.
Each book focuses on char-
acter traits that can become
liabilities later, such as
Mirabella's own fear of fail-
ure of which Gracie suf-
fered too.
"At certain times in my
career, I would overcome it,"
she said, explaining her fear
was in relation to competing.
"It didn't affect writing my
books."
She began the series in
2000- five are finished -
but didn't find a publisher
until 2005. When she's not
writing or cycling, Mirabella
spends time on the motiva-
tional speaking circuit.
"I hope the series inspires
kids to try different sports,"
she said.

The Supportive Housing
Program is designed to devel-
op supportive housing and
services that will allow home-
less persons to live as inde-
pendently as possible.
Eligible applicants are states,
units of local government,
other governmental entities
such as public housing
authorities, and private non-
profits.
Currently, there are plans
for a combined shelter pro-
gram in Highlands County, a
transitional shelter in DeSoto
County, and two projects
under development by the
Hendry/Glades Homeless
Coalition.
These types of programs
are instrumental in providing
a valuable service to our com-
munity and typically, not all
programs are able to receive
complete funding from state
and federal sources. The bal-
ance of financial support
comes from private donations
to include land, but also foun-
dation grants.

Streetscape Phase VIII moving forward


Construction should start

'in a couple of weeks'

By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING The Streetscape Phase VIII
project is inching closer to a start date.
The city council approved a $1.15 million
bid from KDL Inc. at its June 5 meeting, and
ever since then city staff have been working to
lower the costs.
Community Redevelop-ment Agency
Director Pete Pollard said the parties have got-
ten costs down to $906,000.
Pollard will be presenting a change order to
that affect at Tuesday's city council meeting,
and approval will give the green light to the
much-anticipated streetscape project.
The deductions came from several areas.
Original plans for bricks on Lemon Street
were changed to textured and colored concrete
and 500 linear feet of sidewalk construction
along Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard has
been eliminated from the plan.
Planned repaving of the northern part of


CIRCULATION
SUNDAY, WEDNESDAY AND FRIDAY EDITIONS: If you do not
receive your home delivered newspaper by 6 a.m., please phone the circu-
lotion department before 10 a.m. on Wednesday and Friday publication
days and before 11 a.m. on Sunday publication days and a replacement
copy will be delivered to you. Subscribers who notify us after the times men-
tioned, will receive credit to their account. Please call 385-6155, 452-1009,
or 465-0426.


MLK was eliminated because the county
received a federal grant for repaving in the
area, a happening that Pollard called "a stroke
of luck" for the CRA.
Another since-removed part of the
streetscape project called for vegetation to be
installed on the fence of Sebring Parkway
from Shontee Avenue until North Ridgewood
Drive.
The first bids on the project came in at more
than $2 million, much more than the $1.2 mil-
lion the CRA has in its budget to spend. The
council, upon Pollard's recommendation,
rejected the bids and the job was rebid with the
aforementioned aspects taken out.
The money for the project is coming from a
Community Redevelopment Block Grant, and
the cost reduction was necessary because the
city still has to pay for relocation of utilities
on North Ridgewood Drive, as well as new
streetlights and trees, out of that fund.
"It's still very, very tight," Pollard said of
the budget for the project.
Construction on the Streetscape should
begin "in a couple of weeks," Pollard said.

Police arrest one, continue search


for second subject in loitering case


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@ iewrssiin.corn
AVON PARK On June
12, Avon Park Police respond-
ed to a 911 call at CVS
Pharmacy.
After arriving at the scene,
officers observed two men
loitering in front of the closed
business.
Officer James Parker with
the APPD made contact with
the two men as they attempted
to leave the scene, but after
stopping the men for their
identity, they quickly fled on
foot.
Officer David Sass engaged
in a foot pursuit of one of the
men while two other officers
pursued the other.
Sass chased the fleeing man


through the back porch area
of the Oasis, and told the man
to stop or he would deploy an
electronic control device.
The man, later identified as
Christopher Bass, refused to
stop, so Sass deployed the
ECD.
Bass fell to the ground and
Sass attempted to gain control
of him, but during the strug-
gle Bass rose to his feet and
grabbed a chair, allegedly
swinging it in the direction of
Sass.
Sass was struck in the front
of his head, causing a lacera-
tion to his lower lip and chin.
Bass and the second man
were able to escape police
custody, but after an investi-
gation by detectives, Bass's


identity was discovered.
On June 13 members of the
APPD, and Highlands and
Polk County Sheriff's offices
surrounded the area where
Bass was reported to be, near
Lake Damon. During a
lengthy search of the sur-
rounding wooded area, he was
apprehended after another
foot pursuit.
Bass has been charged with
aggravated battery on a law
enforcement officer, resisting
an officer with and without
violence, loitering and prowl-
ing, providing a false name
while lawfully detained, and
possession of methampheta-
mines and drug paraphernalia.
The second subject is still
at large, and the investigation
is continuing.

That's why it's critical that you
read this report before you list
your home. If you wait until the
building inspector flags these
issues for you, you will almost
certainly experience costly
delays in the close of your home
sale or, worse, turn prospective
buyers away altogether.
In most cases, you can
make a reasonable pre-
inspection yourself if you know
what you're looking for. And
knowing what you're looking
for can help you prevent little
problems from growing into
costly and unmanageable ones.

American Party celebrates


Flag Day on the Circle


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Flag wavers
stretched half way around the
Circle in downtown Sebring
Thursday afternoon as mem-
bers of the fledgling
American Party of Florida
celebrated Flag Day.
"This is our fourth rally and
there just seems to be more
people every time we go out,"
APF State Chairman Tom
Macklin said.
People honking horns and
giving the group the thumbs
up were the order of the day.
"Some of the drivers came
around the Circle a couple of
times to have a look and try to
figure out who we were,"
Macklin said as patriotic
music blared through the
speakers above the Circle.
Capping the event was a
presentation by Highlands
County School Board member
and local vexologist Wally
Randall who gave a presenta-
tion on the flags that have
flown over America as well as
the development of the "stars
and stripes," the most com-
plex flag of any nation on
Earth.
The American Party of
Florida has undertaken to
mark American holidays both
well known and not-so-well
known. Their last outing was
a rally in May to honor Armed
Forces Day. The new party
also has started a campaign to
alert the media on the birth-
days of many great patriots
and founding fathers ranging
from Nathan Hale to Dolley
Madison to John Wayile.
"It is so very important to
us that people know more
about the folks that have
made this country great. We
seem to have lost that in
recent years and at the APF
we're going to do our best to
try to restore knowledge of
Sour history to as many people
as we can," Macklin said.
In addition to Flag Day,
June 14 marks the birthday of


the United States Army,
which was established in
1775 a year before the dec-
laration of independence.
Official records indicate
Congress undertook to raise
ten companies of riflemen,
approved an enlistment form
for them, and appointed a
committee to draft rules and
regulations for the govern-
ment of the army.
However, delegates' corre-
spondence, diaries, and subse-
quent actions make it clear
that they really did much
more. They also accepted
responsibility for the existing
New England troops and
forces requested for the
defense of the various points
a total of about 15,000
troops.
"There's still more to cele-
brate this month," Macklin
said. "We'd like people to
remember Audie Murphy on
his birthday June 20 not as
an actor but as a war hero.
Plus, our first First Lady
Martha Washington was born
on June 21."
Murphy was the most deco-
rated American combat sol-
dier of World War II, having
received every medal of valor
America had to offer plus
honors from France and
Belgium. He also became
known to ensuing generations
for his work in movies, play-
ing in a series of films from
westerns to war pictures. He
was the star in the 1951 criti-
cally acclaimed adaptation of
Stephen Crane's Civil War
novel "The Red Badge of
Courage."
Known not as a "First
Lady" per se, the wife of
America's first president was
popularly referred to as "Lady
Washington." While she did
not care for the attention of
the press, Martha Washington
set the tone for many First
Ladies to come, hosting for-
mal dinners on Thursdays and
public receptions on Fridays.


She was said to be a strong
partisan of Washington's
Federalist Party and is said to
have interceded in behalf of
many Revolutionary War vet-
erans.
"We plan to put out releases
on both of these great
Americansand others as the
year progresses," Macklin
promised.
The group next plans to
participate in the Sebring
Independence Day festivities,
selling popcorn and water-
melon slices as part of the
event being staged this year
on the shores of Lake Jackson
by the Heartland Young
Professionals.
"We'll have plenty of infor-
mation about the party and are

Members of the American Party of Florida marked Flag Day Thursday with the waving of
American flags, the playing of patriotic music and a presentation of flags over America by
local vexologist and Highlands County School Board member Wally Randall. The new politi-
cal party has undertaken the task of marking American holidays, and observances both well
known as well as lesser known observances.


looking forward to talking
politics with the people on
that most American of holi-


days," Macklin said.
The APF meets the first
Thursday of each month at the


Homers Restaurant in the
Sebring Square shopping
plaza beginning at 6:30.


Elks Lodge recognizes Flag Day


News-Sun photos by KATARA SIMMONS
Sebring Elks Lodge esquire Joe Wortman helps host a Flag
Day ceremony Friday evening at lodge 1529 in Sebring. An
honor guard from the Civil Air Patrol assisted with Posting
of Colors and carrying of the flags during the ceremony.
Sebring Elk member/Veterans Services Director for
Highlands County Joe Dionne gave the patriotic address.
According to Exalted Ruler Jack Kalish, the Elks Grand
Lodge designated June 14 as Flag Day in 1907. The Grand
Lodge adopted mandatory observance of the occasion by
every lodge in 1911. Both Elk members and the public (top)
were invited to attend a flag day ceremony at the lodge in
Sebring.

Council is refining its 10-year plan,
which it'll present to county commis-
sioners by August.
As with Lake Placid's growth manage-


.011 .- a4


ment plan, Highway Park's plan is a
vision that provides direction and could
become an amendment to the county's
comprehensive plan with the board's
approval.
"We're in a good position to tie into a
sewer line from Lake Placid," Hill said,
explaining he's explored the option and
attended some of the town's growth man-
agement sessions.
But some Highway Park residents are
reluctant to switch from county services
to the town, as are residents of Tomoka
Heights, who have opposed Lake
Placid's efforts to annex them.
Hill said education would alleviate
most concerns in Highway Park. He said
laying sewer lines would require road
and drainage improvements, which
would benefit the community.
Other highlights of the. plan include


adding a pavilion to Lake Huntley's boat
ramp at Anderson Street, an indoor facil-
ity at Martin Luther King Jr.
Recreational Complex, which he said
needs a new sign because the old one was
torn down.
An indoor facility the complex has
a softball field, playground and basket-
ball court would get children off of
the streets, he said.
The Preservation and Enhancement
Council has public meetings at 6:30 p.m.
the second Monday of each month at
New Life Assembly Church on
Cloverleaf Road.
"We definitely want them out there at
every meeting, that's how we get things
done," Hill said. "The board is here for
the people of Highway Park. We want to
serve them."

FFA
Continued from 1A
Shelby Dressel taking first
place in the talent competi-
tion, APMS's six-person team
taking third in parliamentary
procedure and Charlie Brown
taking fourth in extemporane-
ous speaking.
"There weren't any other
teams in the county that
placed in any of those areas,"
APMS FFA advisor Kellie
Duke said. "Those two things
(extemporaneous speaking
and parliamentary procedure)
are very hard events and it
takes a lot of practice to get
there."
Some local students attend-
ed the convention last year,
but the reason behind going
was more to attend workshops
and find out what the conven-
tion was about rather than
compete.
"Last year, I went as a
newly elected officer and
watched the extemporaneous
speaking competition and
thought it would be some-
thing I would do good in,"
Brown said. "I was scared at
first, but then I talked like I
was having a conversation
with people."
Brown chose the topic of
how FFA members pay their
dues for the competition and
said it was easy and vastly
improved his public speaking
skills.
Public speaking may be
hard enough, but the look on
Dressel's face was enough to
inform anyone present that
singing, and doing well in
front of a huge group, can be
its own reward.
Dressel, who won as a solo
act two years ago, was still in
shock from winning the talent
competition with Palmer,

even days later.
"Its a big deal to me win-
ning two years," she said.
"There were 30 other contest-
ants and it was a huge rush
singing in front of 2,500 stu-
dents."
It was Palmer's first time
performing in front of a
crowd that size.
"I definitely wasn't expect-
ing to do anything like this, I
don't perform in front of a lot
of people," Palmer said. "I
figured I'd try it ... (I) felt
comfortable and never
expected to do this well."
The other surprise was
APHS FFA president Jerry
Lee Wright being nominated
and elected to the position of
District 11 president.
District 11 covers all of
Highlands, Glades,
Okeechobee and Hendry
counties.
Wright stood on the strong
foundation of being the presi-
dent for the APHS FFA last
year and being elected again
for next year, and the experi-
ence and confidence from his
peers didn't fall on deaf ears.
"I was nervous, you never
know the outcome," Wright
said of the time between
being nominated and before
the votes were counted. "I felt
there were some different
ideas like a district summer
retreat that would benefit the
district ... it was nerve-wrack-
ing but I was relieved when I
won."
Paizley Whidden, part of
the parliamentary procedure
team, said she took a lot from
both the competitions and
workshops.
"We made some mistakes
and learned from them how to
be better leaders for our
organization and different
things to try for our chapter,"
she said.

YES! Not only do they recognize it, they welcome it as an ongoing movement toward the reduc-
tion and prevennon of hip fractures and the resulting mortality and morbidity.
What Types of Diagnoses G Conditions Does Vestibular rehabilitation Treat?
Some of these conditions include:
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) Labyrinthitis
Meniere's Disease Stroke and Transient Ischemic Attacks
Vestibular Neuritis
To help determine if you may be headed for a fall, take the Balance Self Test
below. If you answer 'yes' to one or more of the questions, you could be at
risk. The best way to determine if you have a problem, however, is to talk
with your physician who might recommend that you get a balance
screening test from a qualified clinician.
Have you fallen more than once in the past year?
Do you take medicine for two or more of the following diseases:
S heart disease, hypertension, arthritis, anxiety or depression?
Do you feel dizzy or unsteady if you make a sudden changes in
r movement, such as bending down or quickly turning?
Have you experienced a stroke or other neurological
.problem that has affected your balance?
......Do you have difficulty sitting down or rising from a
seated or lying position.

Getting golf carts




raring to go
9iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii


TUFF1T 9IT

WITH TUFFLEY

Christopher Tuffley

This week I peeked into a
parallel universe, catching a
glimpse of a world unto
itself. I spent a morning at
D&B Golf Carts Inc., which
is at 6980 U.S. 27 S.
Who knew golf carts could
be so intriguing?
Well, lots of people as it
turns out.
Golf carts, which first
made an appearance in the
early 1950s, are a big busi-
ness.
According to Club Car,
one of the three major manu-
facturers of carts sold in this
country the other two are
E-Z-Go and Yamaha they
produce about 100,000 a
year.- .
And golf carts have moved


off of the golf course. You
are as likely to see one
bouncing across a pasture, or
hauling plants at a nursery, or
parked in front of the com-
munity swimming pool, as
you are at the links.
For many couples in
mobile home parks, their golf
cart is their second car.
For some of those couples,
golf carts are more than
transportation, they are an
extension of their owner's
personality, a source of pride
and competition.
So the first thing I learned
is there are people who take
their carts very seriously; for
them there is no such thing as
over-the-top, or too much.
Golf carts can be fitted
with stereos, gun racks, fans,
golf ball washers, bumpers,
and-coolers, among many
additions. .


There are kits that can turn
a cart into a Hummer or a
Rolls Royce.
There are custom light
packages, wire wheel rims,
pin striping, cup holders,
fancy floor mats, faux wood-
en dashboards, and eye pop-
ping paint.
"You tell me what you
want," said David Lail, who
owns and operates D&B,
"and we'll see that you get
it."
This means that golf carts,
which start new at $5,500 for
a basic edition, can end up
costing tens of thousands of
dollars.
However, there is another
way.
While Lail, an authorized
Club Car dealer, sells new
and. will modify anything, the
bulk of his business is recy-
cling older carts into some-


News-Sun photos by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
These out-dated golf carts (left photo) will soon be rebuilt with a new lease on life. Nothing
goes to waste, but everything salvaged is as good as new when done. Even parts that are
never seen are prepped and cleaned, Tim Burnette, the head mechanic, said with pride.
David Lail (right photo, extreme right), who founded D&B Golf Catrs Inc. in 1983, looks on
as Aaron Presott (left) and Shawn Mattox (right) work at updating a golf cart frame that is as
old as the business. Lail hails from North Carolina. He started D&B alone with his wife Beth


who, he says with some pride,


thing fresh and updated.
He buys older carts in vol-
ume from Club Car, usually
carts the company had leased
out to golf courses. Then he
tears them down and puts
them back together cleaned
up and freshly painted, with
anything broken or worn out
replaced.
His basic rebuilds go for
$3,200.
I joined his team of
mechanics as they attacked a
1983 frame. Normally Lail
wouldn't advocate upgrading
so old a chassis, but this cart
belonged to a friend, and
besides that the summer
slowdown is here, so the
crew had extra time.


'Can do anything.' Now they watch over a crew of eight men.


In fact, most of the slow
summer is spent preparing
for winter, when the crew
may have 10 to 20 rebuilds
and 100 repairs to do every
week. More of that in a
minute.
Tim Burnette, the head
mechanic, let me help Aaron
Prescott install the dash-
board.
It was a simple task. All I
had to do was screw in a few
screws. Only, I did it too fast
- I think I was trying to
look like I knew what I was
doing so I got the first two
screws cocked.
Just as I over tightened
them, shearing them off, I
heard Burnette say, "If they


don't go in smooth there's
something wrong."
Oops. Man was I embar-
rassed.
Prescott had to go behind
me and drill them out. Kindly
he said, "Then there are,
times things just won't go
your way."
After that, I watched from
a safe distance.
Typically, each man has his
specialty, and the carts are
moved from one bay to
another through the rebuild-
ing process. The men are
close knit and work well
together. There are two sets
of cousins and two sets of

VA adds new security


to the myPay system


Special to the News-Sun
The Department of
Veterans Affairs has added a
new security feature to pro-
tect customers' data on the
pay account system, myPay.
As part of an ongoing com-
mitment to strengthen pass-
word and account security to
protect customers' data,
Defense Finance and
Accounting Service has
implemented the "virtual key-
board" to assist in protecting
against malicious software
such as spyware, trojans and
keylogging.
The virtual keyboard is
available now. Each time a
user arrives at myPay to log
on, the virtual keyboard will
appear on the screen. The user
will type in their login identi-
fication, then the user will
press the keys on the screen
by clicking on them with their
mouse to enter their Personal
Identification Number (PIN)
instead of typing the actual
keys. The virtual keyboard is
to be used only for the user's
PIN.
To enhance security, the
keyboard layout changes or
keys are displayed randomly
every time the page is
refreshed.


DFAS uses a variety of
security features to protect
data on the myPay system, yet
officials ask that customers
do everything they can to pro-
tect data from being compro-
mised or captured on home
computers. Under frequently
asked questions on the myPay
home page (https://mypay.
dfas.mil) customers can find
more information on steps to
secure home computers.
To login to myPay using
the Virtual Keyboard: Type
the login ID under Account
Access on the home page;
click on the numbers and let-
ters (if using a restricted
access PIN) of the PIN using
the mouse and virtual key-
board on the screen. (Each
number and/or letter will
appear as an asterisk in the
textbox above the virtual key-
board.) When finished, click
the GO button. Once in
myPay, users will continue to
navigate as usual.
Joseph A. Dionne, County
Veterans Service director, is
encouraged by the recent
change to the myPay system,
adding that it is for the con-
venience of the veterans and
their security that this pro-
gram was implemented.

Golf carts are pretty basic.
There are batteries and a 48-
volt motor older carts
have 36-volt motors, but
those are being phased out.
There is a controller that
adjusts the voltage for speed,
and a forward and reverse
gear.
Unless you order a dual
wheel option, only one wheel
is connected to the motor. By
law a cart can't leave a facto-
ry able to go faster than 19.8
miles per hour. The standard
cart speed is typically 12 to
16 mph.
There have been tremen-
dous changes over the years
Lail said. "Carts now are a
whole lot of electronics. A lot
of high tech. Fortunately,
I've got young guys who get
enthused about that stuff."
For example, the electrical
components are all solid
state, and voltage regulators
have been replaced with con-
trollers that work like a
transformer.
These changes have
extended the amount of time
a golf cart can be run 36
holes of golf, or 105 minutes
of continuous usage -
before recharging. Today
most batteries last six years
and a set costs about $500 to
replace.
One of the biggest changes
has come in the body that is
mounted to the all-aluminum
frame. The body pieces used
to be made out of fiberglass,
which is both heavy and brit-
tle. Now a rubberized plastic
is used. It is much lighter,
shinier, and easier to paint. It
also is far more durable
under stress. The material is
flexible, not stiff like fiber-
glass, so it needs to be rein-
forced with aluminum sup-
ports.
Another change is really
cosmetic. The roof and seat
supports used to be made of
plain aluminum, which were
wide and squared off. Now
the supports are narrower,
with rounded edges, and
painted black for a sleeker,
more modern look.
It seemed to me that there
isn't all that much that can
go wrong with a cart, so I
asked what usually needs to

be repaired.
Of course motors can go
bad, or batteries may be
abused or improperly cared
for White said it is impor-
tant to keep an eye on the
water level in the battery, too
much is almost as bad as too
little. Just cover the plates.
But most repairs have to
do with everything else. The
crew has seen carts that have
fallen off trailers, or rolled
down hillsides, been involved
in wrecks, or, in the case of
those with gasoline engines,
caught fire.
Winter is so busy, especial-
ly the month of December,
that the crew prepares and
stock piles parts all summer.
When I was there, there were
at least two dozen frames,
with motors and steering
attached, just waiting for
their bodies and seats to be


added. That way, when some-
one custom orders a cart, it
can be ready quickly.
Organization is key. Every
bay had its tools neatly
arranged. "It's no good
spending 10 minutes looking
for a tool that you need for a
five-minute job," said
Burnette.
The thing that impressed
me the most about this
assignment was how proud
the crew was of its work.
Everyone went out of his
way to explain what he was
doing and why. And when I
botched what I'd been given
to do they didn't roll their
eyes or swear at least not
in front of me. Instead they
said, accidents will happen.
This was a job I wish I had
the talent to do. At the end of
the day you can see what you

Let's give dad the credit he deserves


927 Today being Father's Day 1 want to
WASHINGTON spend a few minutes talking about dads.
ive Editor Let's face it: Dads do not get as much
credit as moms when it comes to the job
IOEHNE of raising kids. One reason for that
rts Editor probably is that moms get more sympa-
thy, at least at first, because of the
whole nine months of pregnancy and.
S childbirth experience.
Dads miss out on that, though they do
have related experiences, such as deal-
ing with a wife with strange cravings at
midnight. Or having to figure out what
to do when she starts crying for no rea-
son. Or remembering to duck if she
decides during the worst part of labor
the whole thing is his fault.
After all that, it used to be that the
mom spent more time with the kids than
the dad, because the dad would be the
S primary breadwinner. I don't know if
it's still like that today I know a


Laura's
Look

number of couples who have kids and
both mom and dad work outside the
home. That might shake things up a lit-
tle bit.
But when I was growing up, my mom
did spend more time with us while Dad
worked. While I was very young, my
dad was going to night school to get his
degree in chemistry. I have a memory of
him studying at a drop down desk he'd
made just off one of the bathrooms. I
had to be younger than 10 at this time.
My dad likes to work with wood. He
once paneled our dining room in Long
Island, using his vacation time to do it.
We even took a picture of him hammer-
ing in a stud and tacked it to the old


wall with a note that read something
like "Carl Helmers slaved over this wall
during his vacation on such and such a
date."
We moved from that house more than
30 years ago, but I have sometimes
wondered if anyone has removed the
paneling to discover the picture and
other things we drew/wrote on the
walls. Their reaction would be some-
thing.
My dad is the reason I passed the
higher math and science courses I took
in high school. Many was the night we
would be at the dining room table while
he attempted to help me make sense of
it all. The fact I pulled good grades
from those classes means he succeeded
to a certain degree. It's not his fault I've
forgotten most of it.

Dad's job doesn't always



include making you like him


On this weekend I am inclined to consider
my father. He is a very difficult person to
purchase gifts for, since I have pretty much
no shared interests with him. But what I have
learned over the latter part of my life is that it
doesn't matter if I am like him or not. That
isn't what fatherhood is about for him.
I have to start by saying I am a guy and all
my views on this subject are formed from a
father/son standpoint.
I think a lot of guys see the "Ideal Dad" as
that button-down fellow who broke out the
catching gloves when they were 8. I have
come to see that a father's real work starts
around the age of 14 and continues through a
person's adult life.
Before adolescence, dad is a friend and
occasionally the "bad guy" who punishes
mistakes. But when we start creating our own
adult identity, dad is the one we turn to guide
us into the real world, because that is dad's
realm. He is all about the harsh realities of
life, and it is his duty to prepare you for
them.
Mom, up until that point, was there to


Guest Column

shield you from all that harshness and sooth
the pain. That is why a lot of us have a soft
spot for mom and a respect for dad. Because
dad teaches us to get up when we are
knocked down and occasionally will knock us
down when we get full of our selves, and
then offer a hand back up.
Father then knows when it is time to shove
us out of the nest and take some chances on
our own. He throws encouragement tempered
with caution our way to teach us that risks
are what make life exciting, but backup plans
are always a good idea.
But I have to acknowledge that there are
times where mom is the tough one and dad is
the nurturer. And there are also times where
mom or dad assumes both roles out of neces-
sity. But it is in our nature to need a father
figure and the world usually provides one.

'My Fair Lady' is
quite the show
Editor:
Over the past years I have
seen many good shows both
locally and in larger cities,
Chicago, Miami and Tampa,
where the actors, directors
and everyone connected were
highly paid and now I have
just seen the most awesome
play with all "volunteers,"
people who give it their all
just for the love of it. I have
never seen anything, any-
where that can compare with
"My Fair Lady," now playing
at our Highlands Little
Theatre.
To say it is awesome is an
understatement. For the many
"back stage" faces, and there
are so many, what a job they
do. So to you the directors,
choreographers, wardrobe,
stage managers, producers
and helpers, you should be
brought out at the end of the
play and receive a standing
ovation. The hours and


months you put in leaves me
tired just thinking about it.
No play where I have ever
seen such great'props and
with the rapid changes left
me speechless, well almost!
Now our talented perform-
ers, what voices. Tiffany I
could "have danced all night"
listening to you sing. Bill
Farmer and all of the rest of
you were great. Pete Pollard,
it's about time you got back
on stage and Art Harriman,
we all shared the fun you had
with your singing and danc-
ing. I wish I could give you
all a "Tony" but since I can't
do that then you have to get
the "Zenon Award."
I do hope everyone of you
out there will go see "My
Fair Lady." What a show!
To our local newspapers
who are so generous about
printing so much information
and publicity about our
"Highlands Little Theatre,"
we thank you so much.

Reflections
Jan Merop

Leaving a

family legacy

Mother's Day and Father's
Day pay tribute to the family
and remind me of when we
built our house.
First we partnered with a
reputable builder. We put our
heads together to draw up
the blueprint. But, a financial
glitch forced us to change
the blueprint.
Eventually, various crafts-
men completed our new
home. The outside structure
went up quickly. But the :1-- ,
more tedious finishing-work
took time.
A Scripture verse from
Psalm 127: 1, NIV, says,
"Unless the Lord builds the
house, its builders labor in
vain."
Psalm 127 and 128 speak
about God's requirements for
his blessing on families. As
we labor to bring up our
families, words like work-
man, watchman and warrior
stand out. They're not words
we may consciously associ-
ate with parenting. But, let's
consider them.
As 'workmen,' parents
must partner with the Master
Builder trusting him and
bringing their children up to
have a heart for God. No
laziness. Only perseverance.
The workman is patient
and committed to the child-
rearing task. Getting married
and having a child is like the
structural aspect of building.
But, the daily challenges of
teaching a child and helping
him develop is like the
tedious, yet rewarding, fin-
ishing work inside a house.
The 'watchman' stands
guard, protecting his family
from outside forces or inter-
nal struggles. He knows the
dangers of the culture and
sets up safe boundaries.
Watchmen are deliberate
in their parenting, leaving
nothing to chance. They
guide their children to good
friendships; monitor televi-
sion, music and the comput-
er. And, most importantly,
keep the lines of communi-
cation flowing between
themselves and their chil-
dren. Their home is God-
centered and the children are
secure in it.
As 'warriors,' there may
be times when parents must
stand up for their children.
But, another look at Psalm
127: 3 & 4 infers that chil-
dren are like ammunition in
the battle of life. They're to
be released into this culture
to pierce the darkness with
God's light.
Training up a child with a
heart for God is important.
Like arrows are shaped and
directed so, too, are our

We have three mowers: a
rider for the yard; a pusher
for trim work, and a bush
hog for the heavy stuff, such
as the pastures and the sides
of the dirt road.
I was in the house and
knew trouble was brewing
the minute I heard my hus-
band raise his voice. Our son
was supposed to be mowing
with the push mower. A
glance out the window
revealed that at the moment,
the two of them were bend-
ing over the push mower
with their heads together.
Morbid curiosity pulled me
out onto the front porch.
... think you probably
flooded it," my husband was
saying. His face was red
under his dusty ball cap,
partly from frustration and
partly from the exertion of
bending over his generous
belly. "Wait awhile and try it
again, but don't prime it any-
more."
"Okay."
"And take the plug out,
maybe some of that gas will
drain, and it'll dry out
some."
Fred climbed into the seat
of the tractor, gazed at me
and shook his head. "I
swear," he said, as though
that was all that needed to be
said.
Anxious to avert a scene, I
offered my limited knowl-
edge of things mechanical to
my son.
"Did you try to maybe file
the points on the plug?" I
whispered, when his father
was out of ear shot.
"Mom ... Jake replied, as
though that was all that need-
ed to be said ... the apple
does not fall far from the
tree.
"Well ...?"
"That's not the problem."
"Well, you heard your
father, don't put any more
gas in it."
"I won't!"
Jake is at that age where
he not only thinks he,&nows
everything, but he knows he
knows everything.
Unfortunately his father actu-
ally does know most every-
thing, and it never ceases to
be a problem between the
two of them. I stood there
and listened to the lawn
mower try to cough itself to
life.
"Does it have oil in it?" I
ventured.
Jake yanked on the pull
cord and grunted in reply. I
stared at the spot where his
hairy, 18-year-old legs erupt-
ed from his loud Hawaiian
shorts, and disappeared into
the tops of his work boots. A
drop of sweat tumbled from
his brow and landed on the
glossy red paint on the lawn
mower deck. A sand hill
crane screeched in the dis-
tance.
"Want some iced tea?" I
asked; when all else fails,
offer sweet tea, it cures
everything.
"Uh, uh."
"Well," he said, and
straightened, "that's all I can
do. I can't do no more. It
ain't gonna start."
"Why don't you wait
awhile like your dad ..."
"I did."
"No, you didn't. He said
let it sit awhile, you've been

"It ain't gonna start."
"So what are you going to
do?"

"Go to Jesse's house. Let
him mess with it. I can't do it
to please him, anyway."
"You could if you listened
and followed instructions.
That way if it doesn't work
it's his fault, not yours."
He shot me a look over his
shoulder and then he was
gone.
Roughly two hours later,
the tractor pulled back in the
yard. I had forgotten all
about the mower and Jake
until I heard the push mower
coughing again. Back to the
front porch I went. Fred
stood over the mower, his hat
even dustier and his shoul-
ders sprinkled with bits of
leaves and sticker burrs.
"I swear," he said again,
and shook his head, "will
you explain to me how some-
body can mess something up
without even using it?"
"It's a talent reserved for
18-year-old boys."
"He's been doing it since
he was 12," he objected. He
stood and readjusted his cap
as a drop of his sweat joined
Jake's on the glossy red
paint. "Where's he at?"
"He took your advice and
went off to let it sit for
awhile," I replied, "he'll be
back in a bit."
I can't explain what it is
that keeps me running inter-
ference for these two. I can't
stand to see my two men at
each other's throats and will
do almost anything to pre-
vent it. Another yank on the
cord from Fred and the
mower settled into a pathetic,
jerky, pantomime of running,
while belching smoke out the
back. Chug ... chug ... chug

"Well," I joked, "it's got a
good beat ... we could
dance."
Now it was his turn to give
me one of those looks. I
shrugged it off. "Want some
iced tea?" I asked.
"I sure do," he said, and
turned the mower off and
walked away, on to bigger
and better things. He whis-
tled as he searched for the
weed eater and muttered
something friendly to the
dog, proving conclusively
what I've known to be fact
all along ... when all else
fails, offer sweet tea, it cures
everything.

I myself was fortunate
enough to have a textbook
dad, who made sacrifices for
his family and that wasn't
something I could recognize
as a child. I only saw that
my father was away on busi-

world and doing interesting
things. I did not realize that
business travel isn't a vaca-
tion, and the stresses are not
easy on a fellow. I tried it,
and it isn't something I could
do as long as he did.
But that fits into the job of
dad, dealing with life's harsh
realities and then preparing

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop

Teach children

to pray
As we honor our dads on
Father's Day, dads can take
this time to reflect on char-
acteristics they aspire to and
want to model.
Children hear what we say
and watch what we do. And
often; life's lessons are
caught rather than taught.
My dad's devotion to God
was exemplified for my
brother and me. We heard
him pray with us. But, we
also saw him on his knees -
and gratefully, we are still
bathed in his prayers. An
example we took seriously
and have modeled for our
children.
Recently, friends told me a
poignant story about their
granddaughter that illustrates
this precept.
One night, their grand-
daughter awoke to go
"potty." Potty training was a
project her parents were dili-
gently working on since
another baby would soon
arrive.
So mommy got up and
took her to the bathroom.
Mission accomplished, she
brought her to her toddler
bed.
"I want to pway," she said.
Her mommy told her that
she couldn't play now. She
had to sleep. But, the child
insisted she wanted to play.
Mommy took her to the
window and showed her how
dark it was outside and that
meant it was time for sleep-
ing, not playing. But, she
persisted in wanting to play.
Finally, mom put her in
her toddler bed and told her
to go to sleep. She closed her
bedroom door and went back
to bed herself. She shook her
head at her daughter's feisty
desire to play at such an
hour.
But, the child was not to
be dissuaded. She got out of
her bed, opened her door and
proceeded into her parents,
bedroom crying, "I want to
pway!"
Now it was Daddy's turn.
The same scene played itself
out growing more intense
each time. Then, all of a sud-
den, he looked into his
daughter's tear streaked face
as she said again, "I want to
pway." And he realized that
she wanted to pray.
So Daddy held her close,
prayed with her and placed
her gently in her bed -
where she almost instantly
fell into a peaceful sleep.
He went back to bed and
told his.wife that their
daughter want to pray not
play! They lay there wide
awake berating themselves
as popr parents.
But. contrary to their feel-
ings, it had been their com-
mitment to praying with her
before bed each night that
led to the evening's drama.
They had witnessed their
daughter responding to their
excellent training.
Proverbs 22: 6, NIV,
reminds us, "Train a child in
the way he should go, and
when he is old he will not
turn from it."
Daddy prayed. What a
legacy. Selah

'My Fair Lady' at HLT is a thoroughly enjoyable affair


By RUTH HANDLE
Special to the News-Sun
Oberhausen has done it
again!
The current edition of "My
Fair Lady" on stage at the
Lakeside Theater is one more
theatrical triumph for "Frank
O," longtime local director,
actor and talent wizard.
Last week's opening per-
formance was thoroughly
enjoyable and entertaining.
Like any truly outstanding
creative work of art, this
familiar Broadway musical
holds up well to repeated
scrutiny by a demanding
audience. And this offering
of "My Fair Lady" is just
such a work of art.
Given the brilliance of the
classic story written by
George Bernard Shaw and
the familiar and fabulous
music of Lerner and Lowe,
plus the gifted actors and
energetic crew directed by
the amazing Frank
Oberhausen, "My Fair Lady"
proved to be a first-rate work
of art, one that could hold its
own with any amateur pro-
duction anywhere.
Opening a 14-performance
run, the show was not only a
credible rendering of a well-
known musical but also had
distinctive appeal generated
by the excellent acting and
the pleasing voices of the
two leads: Bill Farmer and
Tiffany Elliott. A strong sup-
porting cast provided comic
relief and the re-creation of
London in 1912, but the
memorable feature of this
production was the artistry
with which the show con-
veyed its central theme: that
human personality can be
dramatically and some-
times problematically -
transformed. (The fact that
the makeover hinged on mas-
Stery of the Ehglish language
was especially gratifying to
those of us who promote that


possibility to less than enthu-
siastic students.)
The musical is based on
"Pygmalion," a play in
which a skillful speech
teacher converts a lowly
Cockney flower girl into a
proper British lady. Eliza
Doolittle gains a whole new
identity and several other
key characters undergo dras-
tic changes changes in
their manners, their attitudes,
their sensitivities, their social
status and even changes of
heart.
How did this cast make the
piece work? The magic
occurred because Farmer
became Henry Higgins.
Playing a role made famous
on stage and screen by
Britisher Rex Harrison, the
local HLT amateur consis-
tently displayed the impecca-
ble diction he demanded of
his student and he did so
while singing lyrics that
would challenge the most
articulate speaker. The audi-
ence caught every word, all
sung in a most agreeable
voice with excellent phras-
ing. Farmer made 'enry


'iggins 'is own.
No less a component of
the magic was the work of
ingenue Elliott, who was
required to demonstrate sev-
eral levels of English pro-
nunciation as she progressed
through tedious lessons from
the crude expression of a
"common guttersnipe" to a
quite proper rendition of a
charming song and dance
about rain in Spain. Elliott,
like Farmer, has an excellent
voice and though her role
called for considerable
screeching and high pitched
frustration, the actress main-
tained considerable control
throughout her transforma-
tion. The singing maids
proved quite successful as
time keepers as did the cap-
tions projected to identify
each locale.
Oberhausen capitalized on
many other outstanding ele-
ments in this production. The
dustman, Doolittle, played
by HLT regular Art Harriman
and aided by a chorus of
street people and saloon bud-
dies, is a delightful character
who made an especially


Review

effective exit. Veteran Pete
Pollard was an appropriately
blustering but lovable Col.
Pickering, providing an
excellent "sideman" for
Higgins, ever the cold-heart-
ed confirmed bachelor.
Frequent scene changes
revealed impressive sets and
caused some minor delays
but the technical advances at
HLT since its meager begin-
nings 30 years ago are
remarkable achievements for
a completely volunteer-driv-
en, independent group that


receives no tax revenue. The
company derives its operat-
ing funds from ticket sales
and fundraising campaigns.
Oberhausen's willingness
to undertake any production
challenge was evident in the
Ascot racing scene where
Helen Curcio's spectacular
black and white costumes
plus the technically sharp
sound effects and rapid-fire
pace of action were impres-
sive.
Several playgoers leaving
the small, intimate theater
were heard to remark, "They
really do an amazing job -
especially for a small town


like Sebring. Very enjoyable
evening ... and the price is
right!"
The show will continue
through June 24. Call 382-
2525 to purchase tickets.
Several dates and times are
available: matinee or
evening, dinner or no dinner.
And sign up to be a
"Thakkar Bakkar." President
Melanie Boulay will explain
the project as the lights go
down just before this gifted
director and most likable cast
transport you to London to
meet "My Fair Lady." You'll
enjoy it!

Summer is the Best 7Tmefor Annual Physicals
Dr. Ware's 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:
Ware can be reached at 3425 S. Highlands
Ave in Sebring or by calling 863-471-9000.

What's so bad about exotic plants in our state? Plenty


Exotics, also called inva-
sive or non-native plants, are
a huge problem in Florida.
Many folks think that all
plants are "good" and if they
are pretty, so much the better.
That's why it is important to
understand the nature of
native vs. non-native plants.
You could be hurting the
environment around you just
by trying to make your area
look beautiful.
An exotic plant is one that
has been introduced from
outside of its native range.
Sometimes this is on purpose
and other times it is quite by
accident.
An invasive exotic plant is
a plant that was brought here
and likes the area so much
that it is taking over. The


invasive exotic will expand
into natural areas and disrupt
the natural balance and choke
out the native plants.
Even though all plants
make oxygen and absorb car-
bon dioxide, they need to
grow in the areas where they
originated. You see, plants,
and in their native areas are
subject to conditions such as
weather, disease, insects and
animals that keep them in
balance.
When they are brought to
other areas, these natural
conditions may not keep
them in check and they may
not have any natural enemies
in their new environment.
Therefore, they just keep
growing and spreading until
they take over. Then the


other plants and ani-
mals that live in that
area may either die
or leave. Animals
may depend on
native plants for
their diet and native
plants may literally
be "choked" out by
the other exotic veg-
etation as it continu-
ally grows.
In Florida, accord-
ing to the University

waterways has become prob-
lematic in many areas as
these plants are covering up
the surface water and even
the areas below the surface in
many cases, such as hydrilla.
So you see, these plants are
not "good" for our native,
natural balance.
The problem seems so
huge that you may ask your-
self, what can I do about it?
Actually, there are several
things you can do. Start at
home, instead of purchasing
non-native plants for your
yard, buy attractive native
species.
If you can't live with that,
buy non-invasive exotics that
won't spread. If you do have
invasive exotics in your yard,
remove them and replace


them with one of the other
types. Make sure that when
you are boating, you remove
any vegetation that may have
stuck on your propeller or
other areas so as not to
spread that plant to another
waterway.
Never empty your aquari-
um into a lake or river or
other wetland. Instead of
spreading exotic plants,
spread the word and get your
neighbors and children
involved.

Comedy and song planned at Tanglewood


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Carl Guerra
and Derrick Hadley will grace
the stage at Tanglewood at 7
p.m. Saturday for an evening
of comedy and song.
Guerra honed his craft on
the New York City comedy
circuit where he performed
original, clean, high-energy
comedy at such venues as
Dangerfields,' The Comic
Strip, and The Improvisation.
He performs his act in com-
edy clubs, country clubs, on
cruise ships, and at corporate
events nationwide with out
relying of profanity of sopho-


moric humor.
Hadley is from Manhattan
and traces his musical back-
ground back to his grand-
mother who
attended the
New England
Conservatory
in Boston
during the
1920's. He
began his
Derrick Hadley artistic devel-
opment at the
age of 12 when his mother,
also an accomplished musi-
cian, began to teach him voice
and piano.


Hadley's musical genes and
intense training have led him
to become one of the most
versatile vocalists in the
industry.
He is the master of a vari-
ety of vocal styles, ranging
from Broadway and standards
to rhythm and blues. He has
performed in such musicals as
"The Wiz," "Ain't
Misbehavin'," "Camelot,"
"Hello Dolly" and "Man of La
Mancha."
Doors open at 6:15, show
begins at 7 p.m. Tickets avail-
able at the door for $10.

We are now into
the hot, humid sea-
son here in south
central Florida and
like so many other
residents of this area
I am searching for
flowers that will
survive this weather.
Unfortunately many
of the flowers you
see for sale at the
local outlets such as


Gi


petunias and impa-
tience will not last the sum-
mer.
The list of "summer
hardy" plants (not flowering
shrubs) is really not very
long. My search suggests that
some you may use are caladi-
ums, summer begonias, pen-
tas and dwarf pentas, portu-
laca, periwinkle, and salvia.
Caladiums (caladium hor-
tulanum) are technically not
a flower, but are a beautiful
ornamental that is very heat
and humidity tolerant. Plant
the bulbs when the soil is hot
and moist and they will ger-
minate rapidly. They do best
in partial shade.
Summer begonias or
fibrous-rooted begonias or
wax begonias (begonia sem-
perflorens) are originally
from the tropics. They do
best in partial shade, howev-
er the new hybrids will do
quite well in full sun. They
come in various flower and
leaf colors.
Pentas and dwarf pentas
(pentas lanceolata) are avail-


able in many colors
and are enjoyed by
butterflies and hum-
mingbirds. They
will do best in par-
tial sun.
SPortulaca or moss
roses (portulaca
grandiflora) grow
master best in hot, dry
areas and in full
gardener sun. They can be
Ed Ayen found in a variety of


colors and they do
very nicely in our sandy
soils.
Periwinkle or vinca or
trailing myrtle (catharanthus
roseus) grows well in our
acid soil and likes full sun. It
also comes in many colors.
Salvia (salvia nemerosa)
comes in many different vari-
eties and many are heat and
drought tolerant. They do
best in full sun and come in
many colors and are also
liked by butterflies and bees.
So when your other flow-
ers give up this summer you
may want to try some.of the
above to keep your flower
beds pretty. For more infor-
mation on flowers for sum-
mer contact your nearest
Master Gardener office or
visit http://florida yards.org/
and http://highlands.ifas.ufl.
edulindex. shtml

Ed Ayen is a volunteer Master
Gardener at the Highlands
County Extension Service office is
located at 4509 George Blvd.,

Staff changes at Highlands Hammock State Park


* Spring is rapidly warming
into summer and many
changes are happening here
in the Hammock. Summer
migrants, like the Summer
tanagers, Eastern kingbirds,
and Red headed woodpeckers
fly in. Baby animals such as
White-tailed deer and rac-
coons are common, and the
number of people present at
the park on any given day
drops dramatically. These are
just a few of seasonal
changes occurring here in the
Hammock.
Other changes you might
notice are within our staff.
Several staff members are
relocating, leaving or just
coming back, and we wanted
to give you an update.
Park Ranger Dave
Crandall, who joined us four
years ago after moving up
from Fort Zachary Taylor
State Park, will now be mov-
ing to the Clermont area. "I
really enjoyed being here,"
says Dave.
"I think Highlands
Hammock is a real treasure
of the Sebring area and I will
really miss it." Dave's
favorite aspects of the park
include the ones most often
mentioned the wildlife
and plant diversity."This
community also has a very
proud heritage, and I've met
some very interesting people
while I've been here," added
Dave.
Another rather interesting


person that you
might have met out
here recently is
Park Ranger Leesha
Miller. Leesha
"returned" to us as
a park ranger about
six months ago.
Leesha had previ-
ously been
employed as a state
park patrol officer
and had been in
service to our park


The Real
Florida
Dorothy Harris


quite a few years ago in that
position. Leesha always
loved the park and hoped to
,return here one day as a
ranger. While that did finally
happen, Leesha was recently
offered a security manage-
ment position that she just
couldn't pass up.
Unfortunately she too will be
leaving us soon.
You might remember that
Park Ranger Scott Paterson
was assigned to our District


Four "Viper" Strike
Team for this past
winter's fire season.
Ranger Scott is tak-
ing a break from his
duties with the team
after spending hun-
dreds of hours
either implementing
prescribed burns or
fighting wildfires
all over central and
south Florida. Scott
has greatly enjoyed


all of his adventures this past
winter and has many interest-
ing stories about all that he
has seen and been part of
during this busy fire season.
Look for more on those expe-
riences in later articles.
Park Ranger Judy
Buchanan is also back to the
park after spending eight
days deployed as part of the
"White" Fire Strike Team.
Judy and nine crew members
were sent to the Seminole


Miller Crandall


State Forest on wildfire sup-
pression. Judy earned the
nickname "Little Foot,"
mostly due to her ability to
drag long lengths of hose
underneath 10-foot high pal-
metto clumps in the remote
areas where her team fought
fires.
"These guys were good!
Each team member shared
their expertise and experi-
ence so that all of the team
was able to come away from
this fire with more knowl-
edge," says Judy.
Her favorite moment dur-
ing this grueling experience
was when the care packages
arrived.
"All of us on the fire line
received a gift packet with
silly things like paddle balls,
water guns, lollypops and
gum," Judy said. "It was a
real stress reliever and great-
ly appreciated."
As these and undoubtedly
more changes occur, there are
some things that never
change. Highlands Hammock
State Park will always be a
protected green space in our
community, offering a heav-
enly glimpse of "the REAL
Florida" that we all can
appreciate.
Come visit soon and make
some summer memories with
your family.

Dorothy Harris is a park services
specialist at Highlands Hammock
State Park.


Oh, no! Don't mention the'S' word


I can remember like it was yesterday,
after school was out for the summer, my
boys and their friends would always
cringe anytime I mentioned the word
school...they would say..."Don't men-
tion the 's' word!" We would laugh and
just know that before long, we would be
readying their rooms, clothes and sup-
plies, in anticipation for the upcoming
school year.
As an interior designer, I know that to
have a well-organized work area for a
student really gets them off to a head
start. Let's think about the components
of an area like this and see how easy it
can be for you to do a little planning
ahead so that when the new school year
does start, you and your child will be
ready!
Every child benefits from their own
special space...a place where they can
work on an ongoing project, do some
quick homework problems, or read. A
comfortable chair is a must.
I prefer one with casters, such as an
office chair, that can be easily moved
about to reach a nearby bookcase, file
drawer or computer.
Also, you must consider the lighting.
There are many inexpensive good-look-
ing desk light fixtures today. The halo-


Secrets
Dorry Christy


gen ones put out a great light for read-
ing but get very hot...make sure your
child isn't too young for this selection.
A desk the right size for your child is
also a great addition and should have a
drawer or two for storage of supplies
and be outfitted with storage containers
and holders for these supplies.
You and your child may have fun
picking these out together...you'll have
to call that one.
Don't forget about storage for your
young person! And just where do they
get all of that stuff! It seems like every-
day, my boys would come home with
another armload...papers, backpacks
overflowing, gym clothes, fund raiser
information...you need to have a desig-


nated place for all of this stuff! Stay
organized by only allowing this in one
area of your home. Just as long as your
child knows where to put his or her
things, they will feel more organized
and at ease when having to locate a cer-
tain permission slip or find information
about a book report that is due soon.
Teach them about the use of file folders.
None of us could find anything without
file folders. It is never too young to
learn about that subject!
Hopefully their desk will have a
drawer set up to accept file folders, but
if not, there are many file boxes avail-
able and these could sit attractively on a
shelf close to their desk area.
I hope you all enjoy our wonderful
summer season and when that school
bell rings once more, I am certain that
you and your child will be organized
and ready for the new school year.

golf team member, Duncan

nine holes and among the 11-
12 year-olds, Tyler Hewett
finished first with a 51,
Bradley Brewer second with
a 56 and Trenton Moon third
with a 58.

And Another
Thing...

Learning

lessons from

little leaguers

A little-leaguer in the
pitching-machine level of
the Dixie Leagues was
heard to complain that the
ball was moving funny on
it's route toward home
plate, making it in the
youngster's mind unfair.
The more experienced
and lesson-giving elder
charged with leading the
young baseball hopefuls
tried putting it into perspec-
tive by saying that, "Even if
it is not coming in straight,
it's doing that for everyone.
The other team and other
batters have to face the
same pitching machine,
whatever it's doing."
So where is the wiser,
lesson-giving elder among
the despondent professional
golfer's making up the field
at Oakmont for the current
edition of the U.S. Open?
Much has been written
and broadcast about how
brutally tough this
Pittsburgh-area course is.
The excess distance,
including a 288-yard par-3.
The all-too frequent and
ever-so deep sand traps.
The course now boasts
fewer trees, and therefore
much more wind.
Not to mention the lava-
lamp undulations of the
greens that make the put-
ting like walking blindfold-
ed through a carnival fun-
house.
"It's not fair," some play-
ers said. "It's too hard, it's
not right."
Bemoaning their fate,
building up the pre-emptive
excuse library.
And didn't we just hear
the same sorts of com-
plaints and whining a few
months ago, or every few
months when the PGA tries

HISTORY LESSON
15 YEARS AGO
June 16, 1992: Craig Strickland added a fifth-inning grand slam to go with a first-inning home run
in helping the Sebring Firemen defeat the Sebring Elks, 10-3, in Dixie Boys action. Down 6-0, the Elks
fought back, cutting the lead in half when WesVaughn drove in Brian Carroll. But Strickland's bases-
loaded knock put e out of reach.2Y
25 YEARS AGO

June 14, 1982: The Kiwanis Club clinched the DixieYouth Senior League title with a 7-1 win over
Shultz Printing. Leon Thomas pitched the win for Kiwanis while Tommy Lovett cracked two doubles to
spark the offense. Jay Bassett and Thomas each added two singles to the Kiwanis offensive effort.

It was with a grim determination that the Sebring All-stars
left the field, above, after their first-game loss to Okeechobee
in the District Championship Tournament. That set the stage
for the second-game triumph, helped by Trey Frazier cross-
ing the plate, below, for the title.

runs on base with nobody out.
Grimaldo, the offensive
juggernaut, showed her
prowess extended to the field
as well when she snared a
grounder, stepped on first and
fired home to catcher Peck to
nail a Nationals runner trying
to score.
Suddenly, from two on and
nobody out, to one on and two
out, the lead looked a lot
safer.
A ground ball soon fol-
lowed and the Sebring
defense held true to secure the
victory and the district cham-
pionship.
It took two tries in their
first-ever attempt, showing
that this team won't hang its
collective head when facing
adversity, but will come back
with the character and drive
of a champion which should
serve them well as they head
to Lakeland in two weeks for
their run toward a state cham-
pionship.


DIXIE
continued from 1D
and the Sebring lead soon dis-
appeared altogether in the
fifth as a combination of the
Nationals bats and some
shaky defense brought five
runs in to give the hosts their
first lead at 8-6.
But rather than hang their
heads, the Sebring youngsters
showed the same resolve that
allowed them to bounce back
from the first game defeat and
it now allowed them to
bounce back again.
Grimaldo proved the spark
plug again, beating out an
infield hit before moving to
third on a Frazier double.
Camady then came through
with a two-RBI triple and
caught the Nationals napping
by continuing his sprint and
scoring as the throw was slow
getting back to the infield.
Kyle Helms added a run-
scoring single later in the
inning to boost the lead to 10-
8 with three outs to go.
But those outs sure looked
like they'd be tough to get as
an error and a single by
Okeechobee put the tying
