SEBRING -In less than a
year an abandoned, run down,
two-building, complex at
the end of a small side road,
on forbidding, rocky land -
has been turned into a vibrant
healing center, complete with
a dedicated staff, medical
equipment and a mission to
serve the most needy in the
county.
While Diana Furr and
Winkie Williams spearheaded
-' 'the project's beginning, both
firmly insist the result is
God's planning not theirs.
SFurr is the center's direc-
tor; Williams serves on its
board.
Miracles abound they point
out, from the donation of the
property and the buildings, to
the many people who stepped
forward at just the right time,
with exactly what was need-
ed. ,
The center has been open
to patients since May 14. In
the first four weeks alone, 74
people were seen. That is
without any advertising. Furr
said. Shie ahd the staff chose a
quiet opening. to gixe them-
selves a chance to %work out
any kinks.
Thursday, .morning about
two dozen people gathered to
dedicate a prayer garden at
the back of the main building.
A gazebo, with a wrap-
around deck, nestles next to a-
fountain,, surrounded by a
brand new .lawn that is
accented with flowers, trees
and shrubs.
With the sound of the water
and breeze in the trees, the
space is soothing the per-
fect place to pray .and .ease
away pain.

Armed robber strikes L,&M


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING A group of Sebring Police
Department officers swarmed the L&M food
store Thursday afternoon looking for a suspect
in another robbery.
Thursday's robbery looked familiar to
police officers, coming on the heels of two
similar crimes in a two-week span at the near-,
by Mobil Mart robberies earlier this month.
The only difference is the time of the robbery
- this time it was in broad daylight.
SPD officials said Thursday's robbery had
similar descriptions of the suspect and the way
in which the robbery was performed.
The suspect is still at large, described as a
tall, thin black male. Again a handgun was
used in the robbery and the suspect had his
face covered.
The Highlands County Sheriff's Office


brought in K-9 deputy Wayne Gunn and his K-
9 Sarge to assist SPD in tracking the suspect,
but shortly after the robbery it started pouring.
"It rained immediately, so we couldn't get a
K-9 track," Commander Steve Carr of the
SPD said.
"When it rains the scent is washed away and
any physical evidence as well."
The other robberies had eye witnesses that
saw the suspect flee on foot, but in Thursday's.
robbery police had no such luck.
"It may have been a case with a getaway
vehicle, but we have no witnesses," HCSO
Lieutenant Kenny Johnson said.
"If anyone saw anything that could help us,
please give us or the Sebring Police
Department a call."
The SPD, in charge of the case, can be
reached at 471-5107 while the HCSO can be
reached at 402-7200.

AVON PARK
ids at South Florida
Community College's
youth enrichment camp
have learned a lot more
than swimming, sports and games
this summer. They have also learned
communication, compassion and
caring for other kids who are new,
or shy, or just a little different from
themselves.
Through the Teen Leadership
program, students age 12-16 have
learned leadership skills and respon-
sibilities in their peer group in the
mornings. In the afternoons, they
apply these skills by working with
the younger campers in the 7-12 age
groups.
Teens assist the younger campers
in the computer lab, partner with
them for campus field trips, and join
them for snack breaks and sing-
alongs.
"Our teens have just been awe-
some," said Becky Rousch, director
,of Community Education. "Those
who have been in the program from
the start work with newcomers to
help bring them into their own teen
group, and then into the camper
group as a whole."
Campers are encouraged to cre-

SEBRING The county's Recreation and Parks
Advisory Committee adopted threegoals to guide
it during the void that will follow completion of the
sports complex on Martin Luther King BoulevArd.
Tommy Todd, chief executive officer of Glades
Electric, facilitated the two-part process that con-
cluded Wednesday. Several months ago, he guided
the county's commissioners through the same exer-
cise.
"This is cool stuff to put on the wall," County
Administrator Carl Cool said, indicating sheets of
butcher paper on which Todd hand-wrote RPAC's
goals. "It's feel good stuff."
But, how well the committee executes the goals
by adopting action steps and carrying them out
through the years will determine whether they're
worth the paper on which they're written.
Cool said the goals are a tenth of the work.
Advisory committee member Becky Rousch
interpreted the goals as "what" they want to


RPAC's Goals

1) Develop a plan to determine the wants and
needs of the citizens of Highlands County as they
pertain to recreation and parks currently, and on
an on-going basis.
2) Develop a long-range, plan for the county's
recreation and parks that is flexible enough tp
adjust to new information.
3) Develop a plan to provide, reliable and fair
funding sources for building and operating need-
ed recreation facilities identified by the long-
range plan.

accomplish and the ensuring action steps as "how"
they'll get there.
On May 24, they identified strengths, weakness-
es, opportunities and threats as they relate to recre-
ation in the county.


A strength identified was the existence of a
Recreation and Parks Advisory Committee, which
is funded by a one-cent sales tax ($500,000) and
impact fees. By Thursday, the county collected
more than $33,000 in parks and recreation impact
fees Avon Park, $4,500; Lake Placid. $7.700;
and Sebring, $21,000.
The impact fees are in addition to the $500,000,
said Parks and Recreation director Vicki Pontius,
and they're "not being used as an offset at this
point anyway."
Some counties, such as Polk, don't have a citi-
zen panel to guide recreation endeavors. Or.
they're not as well funded, Cool said.
The committee's diverse membership, voter sup-
port of the penny sales tax, a "good" road system.
climate and the Heartland Triathlon were other list-
ed strengths.
Weaknesses included lack of clear direction and
purpose for RPAC, not knowing what residents

Schools



await FCAT



grades

Addition of science

adds new wrinkle

By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
With another school year over, admin-
istrators are expecting their grades to
come out at any moment.
Last year's improving school grades
brought optimism to the district, but
more test results could lead to relief or
stress over Florida's Comprehensive
Assessment Test scores.
New this year was the science exam,
causing a shift in the way school grades
are calculated.
"We know generally how we are doing
but this is the first year they are going to
include science and the progress made
from year to year in math, so there are
more indicators this year," Cracker Trail
Elementary Principal Richard Demeri
said.
School grades still rely heavily on the
performance of the lowest 25 percent,
now tracking learning gains in mathe-
matics, not just reading.
"We want to focus on those kids; we
have focused on them the last couple of
years," Lake Placid High School
Principal Ruth Heckman said.
"They are making gains and we are
working really hard, the positive thing is
it has made us focus on reading."
Due to the two new factors, the highest
possible score a school can achieve
changed from 600 to 800. This moved
the score needed to be named an "A"
school from 410 points to 525.
"I'd be thrilled to have it (an A grade)
again but with the new grading criteria it
takes more points, it's.still an unknown,"
Demeri said. "We came out very well
compared to the state and the district, but
there is always room for improvement."
In the three categories little has
changed but the numbers. The percent of
students meeting high standards, scoring
FCAT level 3 and above, can earn a
school.up to 400 points. This is one point
Sfor each percent of the total school pop-
ulation earning these scores in reading,
mathematics, and the new science test.
On the writing test, points are earned by
students scoring at level 3.5 and above.
Points can be earned by students mak-
ing learning gains in reading and mathe-
matics, 100 each. Learning gains are
defined as students improving their
FCAT level or maintaining level 3, 4 or

Dan Andrews said.
Andrews pre-
sented the idea to

Monday night as a
way to increase
traffic in the Circle
and to help down-

SEBRING A weekly
farmers' market is set to
become a new tradition at the
downtown -Circle.
The farmers' market is
scheduled to begin in October
after the Run to the
Heartland, and it will be held
every Saturday from 8:30
a.m. until noon.
"We think it will be a
tremendous asset for down-
town," Chamber of
Commerce President/CEO,


The final 200 points comes from the
lowest 25 percent of students and their
learning gains in reading and math.
There is a catch.
To be an A school, more than half (50
percent) of the lowest 25 percent must
make gains in both subjects.
To earn a B or C grade, schools must
have shown this improvement in at least
one of the last two years.
This "adequate progress" combined
with total points and the percentage of
students tested determines a school's
grade.
This is also the reason :schools like
LPHS have'earned D grades in the past,
with enough points to qualify as a C
school, but not meeting adequate
progress goals. Earlier this year,
Superintendent Wally Cox said this was a
common problem with high schools
across the state.
"I don't have a problem with the test-
ing or focusing on those students, of
course the grade concerns me," Heckman


said. "It is one of those things. We just
believe that we are a better school than
that grade shows.
"I think we work hard, our kids work
hard and we are better than that."
To earn an A grade, schools must earn
525 points or more, meet adequate
progress of the lowest students in read-
ing and mathematics, and test at least 95
percent of eligible students.
B schools must earn between 495 and
524 points, meet adequate progress with-
in the last two years and test 90 percent
of eligible students.
The same applies to earn aC grade, to
schools that eiarn bet'feen 435 and 494
points.
D and F grades are assigned to schools
that don't meet adequate yearly progress,
regardless of their point total. D scores
fall between 395 and 434 points, requir-
ing 90 percent of students tested and F
designated schools earn less than 395
points or do not test at least 90 percent of
students.


Boys & Girls Club to get APMS portables


Pair of buildings

to be set up at

Memorial Field

By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Officials
of the Avon Park Steering
Committee of the Boys &
Girls Club of Highlands
County report they are pre-
pared to move 'a pair of
decommissioned portable
classrooms from their current
home at the Avon Park Middle
School to a new location at
Memorial Field, the city's
recreational center.
"We'll probably get them
over here within the next
week to 10 days," said Wally
Randall as the group paced
off the projected area for the
classrooms.
The logistical session,
which was held in between
the raindrops, Thursday after-
noon was followed by an
inspection of the former
classrooms. Randall said the
group was "just thrilled" at
the condition and the ameni-
ties of the two, 24-by-30-foot
facilities that represent the
future home of the Boys &
Girls Club.
"They looked better than
what we'd thought. Plus the
one that has two bathrooms in
it also has a drinking foun-
tain, so we won't have to buy
one," he said. "The other one
has a sink and drinking foun-
tain in it, so we're in hog
heaven."
The Avon Park City
Council voted permission
Monday night to approve the
placement of the portables at
Memorial Field and even
decided to split the cost of


hooking them up to the
municipal water and sewer
system.
Representatives of the
steering committee and the
city's public works depart-
ment met earlier this month
and made arrangements for
the utilities service. Council
members responded by whit-
tling down capacity fees and
allowed both buildings to be
run through a single meter on
a single connection.
In short, the new agreement
means the Boys & Girls Club
will be responsible for $7,745
in materials and fees with the
city to ante up $5,769 in labor
costs.
Randall hoped to get at
least part of their effort
reduced with a timely contri-
bution.
"The biggest cost factor in
this is an E-l pump. I don't
know exactly what that is, but
we're going to get the specifi-
cations and we're hoping to
get somebody locally to help
us with the purchase price,"
he said.
SPreliminary estimates for
that piece of equipment run in
the neighborhood of $4,300
- just over half of what the
Boys & Girls Club is obligat-
ed to pay.
In the meantime, the pro-
gram is serving about 40 chil-
dren at the Avon Park
Housing Authority under the
auspices of Woodraun Wright.
Randall said the group is
continuing its fundraising
efforts. Their latest offering is
a semitrailer load of sod.
"We're hoping a landscaper
or a developer will be inter-
ested in the sod," he said.
"We'd like to sell it all at
once."
This past weekend the Boys


& Girls Club held their inau-
gural Balloon Fest with more
than a dozen hot air balloons
taking off from the Sebring
Regional ,Airport. They
offered rides for donations
and made $7,000.
"If this year is any indica-
tion of next year, we're going
to need a lot more balloons,"
he told the council. In fact,
Randall said a half dozen peo-
ple already have reserved
rides for next year's event
despite the fact a date has not
yet been set.
Also in the works is a Texas
Hold 'em poker tournament,
which is slated to be held
sometime before September.
"We are hoping to find
somebody to help us put that
together. Right now we've
been focusing on these porta-
bles and getting everything
ready to go," he said.
The group expects to have
the portables set up and ready
to go in time for the program
to begin at the start of the
2007-08 school year.
The steering committee
came together earlier this year
after reading in the media
concerns for the local Boys &
Girls Club. Several members
of the group came before
Avon Park City Council mem-
bers to give an impassioned
plea to help preserve the
organization.
"We feel this is a worth-
while organization for the
children in Avon Park.
Several of us have been
involved in the Boys and
Girls Club while growing up,
including some of you on this
council. We know there were
problems in the past and had
to close the club in Avon
Park. However, we feel this is
very worthwhile Community


project," board member Nell
Roberts said.
Roberts will be acting as a
contact person for the sod
sale-, the Texas Hold 'em tour-
nament and other club proj-
ects. She can be contacted at
471-3100.

DAN ANI
Chamber


allows the idea to catch on
faster with local residents.
"We're afraid if we don't
start this way, it'll never catch
on," Andrews said.
Vendors will be able to sell
fruits and vegetables and
baked goods on the Circle
from their vehicles. The
chamber will not charge ven-
dors to sell their products,
although potential vendors
will have to register and fill
out paperwork first.
The ultimate goal of the
farmers' market will be to
draw more traffic into down-
town Sebring on a weekly
basis.
"If we could get food ven-
dors to pull up to the side-
walk, it would force people to
at least walk downtown a lit-
tle bit," said Gene Brenner,
Community Redevelopment
Agency chairman and owner
of the downtown Brenner
Pottery and Graft Gallery.
He added that unlike events
like Heartland Idol that take
place in the middle of the
Circle, the farmers' market
will mean increased foot traf-
fic, window-shopping, and
hopefully sales for the down-
town stores (most of which
are closed at night when Idol
takes place).
"We're trying to market
downtown, to get people to
walk around," Brenner said.
The farmers' market will
replace the downtown side-
walk sales, which were held
three times yearly and fea-
tured a variety of non-food
items for sale.
"We're targeting more of a
niche with this farmers'-style
market," Andrews. said, in


explaining the replacement of
the sidewalk sales. "We
talked about an image for
downtown, what we wanted
to bring there, and it wasn't
necessarily the people trying
to sell things they were sell-
ing at Firemen's Field."
A farmers' market was pre-
viously held downtown sever-
al years ago, although it was
held in a parking lot off of the
Circle and it was monthly
instead of weekly.
Another idea presented to
the CRA is either a "Ladies'
Night Out" or
"Families' Night
think Out" event, which
Should begin in
be a September. The
ldous night would feature
entertainment on
tfor the Circle and jazz
music, and the idea
'own.' would be for down-
town merchants to
DREWS stay open late on
president those nights,
Andrews said.
The ideas for the
farmers' market and the
nights out emanated from a
meeting last week between
Andrews and representatives
of the downtown merchants,
including CRA.
"We shared some good
ideas," Andrews said of the
meeting between himself and
representatives of downtown
merchants.
"We thought outside of the
box on how to not only sup-
port existing merchants, but
also to draw new quality mer-
chants into the downtown
area.

Continued from 1A
want and a perception of
inequality among facilities
throughout the Highlands.
One member of the com-
mittee said the county should
build upon existing facilities.
"I disagree," Pontius said.
"Yes, we have an inventory
but we don't know what the
people want."
The advisory committee
hopes its new goals will pro-
vide a road map to help it
continuously and regularly
gauge the community's recre-
ational wants, plan for them
and fund them.
Though a survey was dis-
cussed, how to conduct one
and whom to interview was
debated' during a digression.
"What I hear from people
out there who don't use recre-
ation is that they're against
it," commissioner Edgar
Stokes said, suggesting the
committee also look at recre-
ation and demographic trends
in how the county arrived at
its current state. A survey, he
said, should target those who
engage in recreational activi-
ties.
But, such discussion the
merits of surveys and how to
conduct them was set
aside for when the committee
returns to discuss its action
steps.
Heretofore, Cool said
RPAC had been reactionary
instead of proactive.
"If that's the way it's been,
then this is a totally new
direction," Todd said.
The advisory committee
meets again July 26.

'We'have an
inventory, but we
don't know what

TRIATHLON

RAINING

IPS I


An hour a day to


your best triathlon


Eric Moore, Heidi
Crutchfield, Patrick High,
Scott Dressel, Vicki
Pontius and Charlie Burns
are all triathletes.
SThe first three are sea-
soned veterans. The latter
trio are doing their second
race at the July 15
Heartland Triathlon.
They have their individ-
ual training philosophies,
which they balance with
personal and professional
commitments.
Triathlon training con-
sists of breaking down
each sport into three
areas speed, strength
and endurance.
"They go out and do the
same thing every time,"
Moore said, discussing
beginners' counterproduc-
tive strategy.
Besides being boring,
those workouts can lead
to poor results or injuries.
Instead, Moore sug-
gests mixing up training,
focusing on intervals
(speed) one day, tempo
(strength) the next and
base (endurance) on
another..
Interval training is just
that. At pre-determined
intervals swim or bike or
run at full speed for about
a minute or so. Then,
based on landmarks or
time, slow down and fully
recover.
A rule of thumb: Rest
for the same time interval


that your heart rate was
elevated. Beginners may'
want or need to extend
the recovery time by as
much as a two-to-one
ratio.
A base workout is a low
heart rate session during
which you focus on accli-
mating your body to
longer distance. Time isn't
so much the objective as
is a specified distance.
Tempo sort of combines
a base workout with inter-
vals. But, the heart rate
isn't nearly as high as with
the sprints. During tempo
training, you'll maintain a
spirited heart rate for
longer distances than in
intervals, and breaks are
fewer and further between
while your body never
fully recovers from previ-
ous efforts.
Though many begin-
ners will spend two to
three hours on the
Heartland Triathlon's
sprint course, Moore said
it's not necessary to com-
mit more than an hour per
day to training.
"You can get a lot done
in 30 minutes for this dis-
tance," he said, condon-
ing split training of a half
hour in the morning and
another half hour later in
the day.

GARDEN
Continued from 1A
and Kathy Seamans intended,
when they took on the work
of bringing the garden into
existence.
The Seamans had been
wanting to memorialize their
daughter, Janette Seamans
Branham, who was murdered
in July 2005. Branham's hus-
band, Michael, is facing
charges for the killing.
What better way to express
their love and devotion, they
found themselves thinking,
than to turn a waste land into
something beautiful and ful-
filling, while helping the very
kind of people to whom their
daughter had dedicated her
life.
It was a challenge, Kathy
Seamans said at the dedica-
tion, because she knew next
to nothing about gardens or
plants.
But miracles happened so
often and quickly, she said,
that the project was complet-
ed in three weeks.
They started on the evening
of the day the couple decided
to take on the project. During
a visit to friends, the Seamans
met Bonnie Johnson and Jan
Weingert for the first time.
Turned out Johnson and
Weingert were enthusiastic
,amateur landscapers, and
delighted to be of help.
With the design 'complete,
other individuals joined in the
work.
Jeff Williams of JW
Harvesting Company, Mike
Hall of Mike Hall Well
Drilling, Clay Williams of
Clay Williams Water
Treatment, Lawler Wells of
Lawler Wells Sod & Sod
Replacement, Allan Liskey of
Advanced Electric, Wes
Fisher of Hidden Acres
Nursery, and Wayne Todd of
the Bulb Bin all donated
materials or labor, clearing
land, installing an irrigation


system and fountain, and
planting the plants.
Smaller miracles happened
as well, Kathy Seamans said.
At one point she was looking
at an empty space, wishing
they had ordered one more
podocarpus to fill it, when lo
and behold the order arrived
by truck from the nursery
with an extra podocarpus on
board.
Furr made it clear in her
comments Thursday morning,
that many other people helped
along the way, most with their
hands.
Pastor Vernon Harkey, of
First Baptist Church in Avon,
Park, assisted by associate
pastor Gus Hall, dedicated the
garden in the name of Jesus
Christ.
Harkey celebrated the
Seamans as mature
Christians, people who chose
to rise above bitterness, and
instead share an overflowing
cup of love with those around
them.
"The joy of the Lord is our
strength," Kathy Seamans
said in response. "He is
pleased with this garden."
She and her husband had
been taken aback by people's
enthusiasm and generosity,
because most of them had
never known her daughter.
"It has been. a time of real
healing," she said, adding the
garden was really for the
memory of all loved ones lost.
"That wonderful cloud of wit-
nesses," she said, I could
hear Janni singing." A smile
of peace lit up her face as she
stood with her family, four
generations gathered together
- Mary Wiltgen, Janette
Branham's sister; Katie
Bormann, Wiltgen's daughter;
Katie's husband Phillip
Bormann; and their toddler
Michael.

CAMPERS
Continued from 1A
His wife, Tracy, is the instruc-
tor for the teen group. She has
just completed her bachelor's
degree in special education at
the University of South Florida
in Tampa. Both have years of
experience working with
church youth groups.
Each week, the teens devel-
op a Group Agreement. These
are guidelines about what they
will do and how they will con-
duct themselves during the
activities. Everyone signs the
Group Agreement and it is
posted in the meeting room.
This agreement is rewritten
every week when new campers
join the group, and the kids
monitor themselves.
"I hear them
say to each other 'The k
'remember our
Group are le

Schuknecht said. usefe

to discuss and
describe their IAN BE
experiences. Computer
At first there
was a clamor:
"It was fun," several yelled at
once.
."The teacher knew what we
liked."
"We actually learned a lot
and still had fun."
"I thought it was going to be
like summer school, but we
never sat in the classroom."
Then they settled down and
began to sort out their
thoughts. Tracy Schuknecht
suggested that she thought they
had learned acceptance.
"We talked about being
receptive to other people who
are different from you,"
Schuknecht said. "We talked a
lot about issues facing them
today, and why we should
respect different opinions.
They are all seeing how people
go in cliques, form groups in

high school now. They are all
going through the same
things."
Why stressful?
"Sometimes they don't lis-
ten ... sometimes they don't
follow instructions ..."
Schuknecht smiled while lis-
tening to these complaints.
"They thought they could
not relate to the younger kids. I
told them 'think about how
you were at that age and what
you were going through.' It
was not so long ago. They
learned to be more patient."
Instructor Ian Belanger, who
teaches at Cracker Trail
Elementary School, works with
the campers in the computer
lab. He has observed the
groups working together and is
very pleased with the interac-
tions.
"The kids here
ds here are learning use-
ful skills while
rning they are having
skills fun. This camp is
not babysitting,"
ley are he said.
Members of
fun. the younger
a group are work-
p ing on individual
tot PowerPoint pre-
sentations about
ting. the planets. Their
enthusiasm is
ANGER obvious when
instructor they enter the lab
and rush to the
computers as fast
as they dash for their snacks
during break.
The teens are also working
on a final computer project,
which they describe as a
"Mission Impossible" format
of virtual folders for each
member of the group.
When finished, each person
will have a profile with photo
and comments about their
experiences and impressions of
camp.
Rousch is most impressed
by the results of partnering
older and younger children,
and how it has affected both.
"They have learned compas-
sion, and it has been wonderful
to watch this develop. They
had a chance to learn to be
kinder and more considerate
kids."


Even better than chocolate

The primary reason he was so funny
was because he had no idea that he was
funny. The two boys have kind of grown
apart over the years but 1 saw this boy
- who I'll call Willie the other day,
and the following memory came flood-
ing back.
Jake and I were coming home from a
Little League baseball game, and Jake
called Willie to give him the horrible
results of the game. Before Jake ever
got a chance to talk about the game,
Willie had him in stitches.
"Mom, you gotta hear this," Jake
.said, laying the phone on the seat
between us and turning on the speaker.
"Tell inom what you were telling me,
Willie."
"Hey, Miz Mouser," came the familiar
greeting.
"Hey, Willie," I responded.
"I's just tellin' Jake that I reckon I got
us flunked out'a auto mechanics class."
"Oh?" I peered at Jake. He had his
hand over his mouth and he was trying
so hard not to laugh that tears were
winking at the corners of his eyes.
"How'd you do that?" I asked.
"Well, they gave us some kinda little
motor to take apart and put together
again, and I screwed it all up. I got parts
hooked to parts that are not even sup-

posed to touch each other, and I ended
up with a whole stack of screws that I
couldn't figure out where they went ...
some partner I got! He's sitting' home
suspended, and I'm trying' to get us
through auto mechanics all by myself,
and I can't even put on a Band-aid with-
out messin' it up!"
"I'll be back on Thursday, Willie, just
try to stall it until then," Jake said,
finally laughing out loud.
"I can't do that, the damage is already
done," Willie insisted.
"Just keep all the parts together.and
don't lose any of the screws. We have
until Friday to turn it in."
"Look man, when I couldn't figure
out where the screws went I panicked a
little, and I dumped 'em all in the gas
tank on that little motor."
Now Jake looked concerned.
"What'd'ja do that for!?"


"I couldn't just leave them laying out,
it was a dead give-away that I didn't
know what I was doing."
"Well you didn't know what you were
doing!" Jake yelled.
"Well I know that, why do ya think I
/picked you for my partner!?" Willie
yelled back.
There was a long, long, silence where
nobody said anything, and then ...
"Ya'll still there?" Willie ventured.
"Willie," Jake said, "tomorrow when
you get to auto mechanics class, take
that thing all apart again and fish out
the screws. We'll work on it Thursday
and do the best we can."
"No can do, the damage is done,"
Willie repeated. : -.'
"What are you talking about?"
"I done turned it in."
"Why!? We had until Friday! Why'd
you turn it in early? And worse yet, not
done!?"
"I didn't want everybody to know
how bad I messed it up," Willie admit-
ted. "When I said I flunked us out, I
meant it."
Jake's head fell back against the head
rest and he stared at the ceiling of the
truck while Willie waited.
"How mad are ya'?" Willie asked
cautiously.
"Not too awful mad," Jake said. "It's
not your fault I got in a fight and got
suspended, but tomorrow go to Mr.

Former Lake Placid
Drugs sold again
Editor:
What a sad day today is. Today, an
icon in the Lake Placid community is
closing. Lake Placid Drugs, a local
family-owned drug store, opened by
the Crews family in 1925, is closing
their doors. Charlie and Dee Dee
Stidham, daughter and son-in-law, in
addition to their son Dean, have lov-
ingly and with integrity, honesty and
wonderful business ethic, tended the
needs of the community over the last
50 years.
Everyone I know has a story about
how Charlie or Dean went over and
beyond, to take care of someone in
need.
What makes this especially sad is
that when Charlie and Dee Dee decid-
ed it was time to retire, and entrusted
the business to another, they were
given assurances that the business,
clientele, and employees would be
taken care of. Like many of those
with traditional values, their word is
their bond, and they expected the
same of those they dealt with also.
Now we find that (a chain pharma-
cy) and the owner of (who the
Stidhams has sold and entrusted their
business to) have made a deal togeth-
er. (Buyer of Lake Placid Drugs) has
sold its business as well as Lake
Placid Drugs to (a chain pharmacy)
and effective at the end of business
today, the doors will be closed and all
prescriptions will be transferred to
(chain pharmacy) .
All those patrons who have been
loyal Lake Placid Drug customers,
accustomed to the long-term employ-
ees and the care and concern of our
small town pharmacy, are now being
"forced" to go to (chain pharmacy), if


nothing else to pick up their prescrip-
tions.
One can't help but wonder why
(chain pharmacy) felt the need to
"stack" everything in their favor and
"buy up" all the quality competition
in the area. Are they really so unsure
of their ability to take care of their
patrons needs? (Buyer of Lake Placid
Drugs) is in the middle of construct-
ing a new building for their business.
In today's money-driven world, it is
pretty apparent that a large figure
must have changed hands in order to
ensure that (buyer of Lake Placid
Drugs) (as well as Lake Placid Drugs)
would close their doors at this stage.
I guess (chain pharmacy) just sees
it as "the cost of doing business." But
we all must know that all their patrons
will be paying that cost, and for their
need to squash the small town inde-
pendent competition that apparently
they felt was so threatening.
The saddest part is the loss of our
beloved Lake Placid Drugs, and the
history and tradition of friendly, car-
ing service. The other local chain
store has never been able to provide
that. I was hopeful that (chain phar-
macy) would be better. Now I see
their method isn't to "provide good
service and quality product for a fair
price," but rather to manipulate with
the power of their money to control
the market.
This isn't just a sad day for Lake
Placid, but for all of us who value
what small town America has to offer
to the quality of our lives, and the
values with which we choose to live.
One more example of how big busi-
ness can shove right through a small
town and do whatever it wants to do.
Well, I will be picking up my pre-
scriptions, and I will be finding any
other source to have them filled.

Opinions expressed in letters or

Lastly I would like to thank
Charlie, Dee Dee and Dean (and all
their long-term employees) for all
they have done to keep that "small
town feeling" alive. I know they must
be so sad at these changes, but they
need to remember that all of their
actions reflect the wonderful values
and standards that at least some of us
still find important in our daily inter-
actions with others.
Maybe, as a society, we have all
succumbed to the idea that "money"
is the "end all" of everything that
occurs in this world. But I am pretty
sure money would provide very little
benefit without the people and rela-


tionships this world has to offer.
Money was meantto facilitate life,
not the reason for it. I sure wish big
business remembered that.

What does July Fourth
mean to you?
Editor:
The Fourth of July means liberty
and justice for all, freedom of speech
and worship. Our Congress estab-
lished Independence Day as a holiday
in 1870 and in 1938 Congress reaf-
firmed it as a holiday.
Today as we celebrate all across
this nation to mark this holiday, let us
not forget to pay our respect and to
honor our flag, which has become one
of our nation's cherished symbols of
liberty.
, It should be a day of fun and cele-
bration, and we should have family
gatherings, picnics, military displays,
games and fireworks. But it should
also be a day for reflecting and to be
thankful and grateful to all the veter-
ans who made the sacrifices of their
time, liberty and even their lives, so
that we may live and enjoy the free-
dom we have in this country.
Over the years we have come a
long way and many important events
have happened on this day. Just to
name a few, in 1781 the first official
state celebration was held in
Massachusetts; 1801, the first public
reception was held in the White
House; in 1912, the first national flag
with "48" stars was officially
endowed; in 1960, our 50-star
American flag was flown; in 1992,
our flag flew in "space." So our flag
has had a lot of special events on this
special day.


So let us celebrate the Fourth of
July and remember our flag also,
while we are enjoying our freedoms.
Remember freedom is not free, it is a
gift, so let us all cherish and defend it.
Be proud to be patriotic, not only
on special days, but every day. Be
thankful for the freedoms we all share
as we live in this great country of
ours. I am. Are you? God bless you
all and God bless America. Enjoy
your day.

When is a 'prize' not free?
Editor:
There are local auto sales groups
that mail out flyers announcing that
you are a winner! Vacations, cash,
digital cameras, etc. Nice!
If you go to the sale site to find out
what you have won, you will find that
you do not get a prize in hand; you
get an "order blank" and that in order
to receive your prize you must submit
a substantial "handling fee" by mail,
that may equal the retail price of the
"prize." What a deal!
And, of course, while you are there
to register for your "free gift" you
must listen to a sales person try to sell
you an overpriced automobile. (I
worked in a major auto dealership in
south Florida for nine years where we
did give away prizes to the customers,
while they were there).
Nothing is free, customer pays the
price!

Hanchey.and get that project back ..." he
lifted his head and stared at the phone
lying on the seat, "I don't care what you
have to do. Lie if you have to, but get it
back, OK?"
"OK man, I'll get it."
"Take it all apart and get the screws
out of the gas tank. We may not ever find
out where they go but one thing's for
dang sure, they don't go in the gas tank!"
Now they were both laughing, that
kind of nonsensical hee-hawing that
teenage boys are famous for, and laugh-
ter of that sort tends to go on until
nobody really remembers what was
funny to begin with. Mindful of my cell

Willie's grown now, and I only see

To the public: Are you one

We already have a political
autocracy of professional
politicians who care little for

catsup

While eating a sauer-
kraut dog at The
Hammock Inn the other
day, I got to wondering
why some people say
"ketchup," others "cat-
sup," and kids say "chup
chup." As kids we used
to say, "What's the diff?"
Well, let me tell you,
ketchup is a word with a
past.
At http://homecooking.
about.com/od/food
history/a/ketchuphistory.
htm, we learn that
"Ketchup is America's
favorite condiment, being
found in 97 percent of
kitchens."
Originally, ketchup was
the word used for any
vinegar-based sauce, and
did not contain tomatoes.
The sauce seems to have
emigrated to Europe by
way of sailors, where it
was made with locally
available ingredients such
as the juice of mushrooms
or walnuts."
Ketchup is first men-
tioned in print by Charles
Lockyer's book of "1711,
An Account of the Trade
in India:" "Soy comes in
Tubbs from Japan, and
the best ketchup from
Tonquin; yet good of both
sorts are made and sold
very cheap in China."
Lockyer's book states:
"It's (the word ketchup)
likely to be from a
Chinese dialect (ke-tsiap),
imported into English
through Malay (Kechap).
The original was a kind
of fish sauce, though the
modern Malay and
Indonesian version, with
the closely related name
'kecap,' is a sweet soy
sauce." (http://www.
worldwidewords.org/qa/
qa-ket2.htm)
Even earlier than
Lockyer's quotation,
"there is an entry dated
1690 in the Dictionary of
the Canting Crew, which
gives it as 'catchup',
which is another
Anglicisation of the origi-
nal Eastern term.
'Catchup' was used much
more in North America
than in Britain."
Jonathan Swift, however,
was responsible for the
word "catsup" being com-
monly used in the United
States, "since he used it
first in 1730." (world
widewords.org)
Not surprisingly, kids
eat 50 percent more
ketchup than adults."
However, you may be
unaware that ketchup will
remove tarnish and will
shine copper. Studies
show tomato ketchup can
also be a powerful tool in
the fight against cancer
and heart disease.
"Unopened bottles of.
ketchup may be stored up
to one year in a cool, dry
place. Once opened, you
may store it in a cool
environment, away from
sun and/or heat, for about
one month. Storing
opened ketchup in a heat-
ed environment such as in
direct sunlight or in a
kitchen that is constantly
hot can invite fermenta-
tion, which can actually
cause a minor explosion
when opening the con-
tainer." (homecooking.

'Evan Almighty' is not so mighty after all


The News-Sun www.newssun.com


IN
FARON CINEl


New Dolby Digital Sound


All Seats 5.00 for Matinee
, Frda 6/1- Thur: sday 6/7 c-


At a whopping $175 mil-
lion, "Evan Almighty" is the
most expensive comedy ever
made. That's right, ever.
Unfortunately, that money
couldn't buy a decent script.
Or a decent movie.
"Evan Almighty" is set in
the same world as its prede-
cessor, 2003's "Bruce
Almighty." This film's focus,
is on Evan Baxter (Steve
Carell), who was a minor
player in the original film. In
the four years since we last
saw him, Evan has become
quite successful. When the
film begins, he's moving
from his old job as a network
news anchor to his new one
in Congress.
Evan quickly settles into
his new profession and his
lush new office, and quickly
finds himself overwhelmed
by the workload he's taken
on. Then he starts getting
mysterious housewarming
presents first a prehistoric
toolkit, then large bundles of
wood. And then God
(Morgan Freeman) appears to
him and gives him a stunning
.directive build an ark.
While the plot of the
movie leaves much to be
desired, the cast, led by bud-
ding superstar Carell, certain-
ly doesn't. Carell's career has
taken quite a leap in the
years since he was a bit play-
er in "Bruce Almighty." And
although this Carell film isn't
particularly good, the
movie's flaws have nothing
to do with him.
What sets Carell apart
from his comedic peers is his
emotional range. This range
allows him to portray com-
plex characters successfully,
and as proof of this look no
further than his role as
Michael Scott in "The
Office" or his star turn in the
"40 Year Old Virgin."


The Basics
What: 'Disturbia'
When: Call 471-1179
Where: Lakeshore
Cinema 8 in the
Lakeshore Mall, 901,
U.S. 27 North, Sebring
Admission: $5 for
matinees, seniors 60
and older and children
12 and under; $7 for
evening shows
Rated: PG
Movie length: 1 hour,
35 minutes

Getting the lead role in a
major film like "Evan
Almighty" is a testament to
Carell's promise as a star
actor. Standing out in a film
like "Evan Almighty" that
isn't very good will do even
more to showcase him as a
legitimate Hollywood super-
star.
But Carell isn't the only
talented member of the cast.
Freeman reprises his heaven-
ly role with aplomb, and he's
given more to do in this film
than he was in the first.
Lauren Graham, fresh off her
run in TV's "Gilmore Girls,"
isn't allowed to showcase her
comedy capabilities as
Evan's caring and concerned
wife, but she's excellent in
her role anyway.
Congressman Baxter's
staff provides the majority of
laugh-out-loud moments in
the film. Jonah Hill (who has
appeared in basically every
movie this summer) is won-
derful as Evan's doting assis-
tant, the great John Michael
Higgins (best known for his
hilarious roles in the
Christopher Guest movies
"Best In Show" and "A
Mighty Wind") plays Evan's

'Evan Almighty'
gets





Chief of Staff with the per-
fect mix of seriousness and
comedy, and comedian
Wanda Sykes gets in her
share of one-liners as Evan's
secretary Rita.
With its PG rating, pletho-
ra of animals, and loads of
slapstick comedy, "Evan
Almighty" is supposed to be,
a kids' movie. But just
because the movie is meant
for kids, doesn't mean kids
will actually like it.
It's not that the humor in
the film is too advanced, it's
just that the humor in the
film is almost nonexistent.
There are plenty of lines that
will induce a chuckle, but
actual laughs are much hard-
er to come by, no matter the
audience's age. And although
the film has a positive mes-


sage, the absurdity of the
goings-on in the film makes
that message difficult to take
in.
The film's exorbitant price
tag came largely due to all of
the animals that appear in the
movie. But the animals in the
film don't make the movie
any funnier. In fact, the ani-
mals are little more than bit
players and comedic props in
the overall scope of the film,
meaning director Tom
Shadyac threw away $175
million and has very little to
show for it.
But again, the main prob-
lem with "Evan Almighty" is
the same problem that beset
"Bruce Almighty" the
script. This is supposed to be
a comedy, but it's just not
very funny.
"Evan Almighty" isn't a
bad movie. It has an excel-
lent leading man, a good sup-
porting cast, and a creative
(albeit absurd) premise. But
in the end, the movie is a
mediocre sequel to a
mediocre movie.
When people complain
about the overabundance of
sequels in today's
Hollywood, films like this
Provide them with plenty of
ammunition. Ultimately,
"Evan Almighty" will go
down in history the same
way as most comedy sequels.
It's not a bad movie. But
it's not a funny movie. Which
makes it an unnecessary
movie.

Let your light shine


While driving
along an old coun-
try road I see a field
of bright yellow
flowers growing. I
stop the car and
step out to walk
among these magi-
cal tokens of heav-
en's pleasure.
As my footsteps
fall between these
blossoming beauties
I am amazed at how


Verlon's

Vernon Carrell


SaIthe sunshine around
me takes on a glorious gold-
en hue. As I look at this
spectacle I begin to wonder
how many times I have seen
such a wonderful sight and
yet never noticed. It was.as if
it had been invisible to me
C until this day.
As I continue exploring
SP this uncharted territory I
SProiders kneel down to observe my
new frontier from a fresh
perspective. Instantly I was
surprised as I looked at the
S light shining through the
S flower pedals.
S- It occurs to me that this
Flower was acting as a prism
to make visible what was
S previously invisible. This
flower was like a window
Sallowing the light of heaven
S to shine through and brighten
S" my day. As I looked through
-" this gracious plant I was able
S- to perceive the incomprehen-
S sible brightness of the sun.
SAs I pondered my trans-
parent plant, I began to'rec-
ognize some very important
human qualities. We live in a
S- world that is blinded to the
truly important things of life.
S" Who has ever seen an idea?


,... Who has ever
seen love? . Who
has ever seen faith?
... Who has ever
seen faithfulness,
truth, kindness, for-
giveness, gentleness
or peace? ... The
:genuinely important
things in the world
are the invisible
realities we take for
granted every day.
And the only way
people will be able'


to see these will be when we
allow the light to shine
through us.
Will the people you meet
Today be able to see the
invisible? Will they see kind-
ness reflected through your
life? Will they gaze at loving
deeds and patience or will
they see the ordinary dog eat
dog world they are accus-
tomed to? Our task is to
allow the light of heaven to
shine through our daily lives
and make visible the good,
the beautiful, the true, the
honest and the loving sun-
shine of life.
Were we not commanded
to let our light shine for all;
to let our good deeds glow
for all to see, so that they
will praise our Father in
heaven?
Today, let us choose a life
of transparent 'goodness and
reflect the light those around
us need to see.

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

A Calling (Out)
Do you know what's been
lost amid the hubbub of the
steroid controversy in Major
League Baseball?
Some will point fingers to
Bud Selig, the owners and
those running the game, sug-
gesting, "Oh, of course they
knew about it, but it was
helping their product."
Others will point fingers at
the players themselves,
explaining, "Hey, if they hit
more home runs, they get
paid more, so who wouldn't
do it?"
And then there are the
fans, to whom such commer-
cials as "Chicks Dig the
Long Ball" were designed to
attract.
Baseball purists be
damned, they wanted the
casual fan, the fan primed
for action during the NFL's
hiatus.
Show some power, some
high-total run scoring, and
I'll pay my price for the tick-
et.
Now, in the aftermath,
after the fact that we realize
something was wrong, some-
thing was terribly amiss -
now the pundits, the experts,
- the sportswriters, beat-writ-
ers and columnists have
found their mission.
To call out all that was
wrong wiih that era, all that
the players did wrong, all
that we bought into, all that
the ownership and manage-
ment looked away from.
And the debate now falls
into the laps of those same
writers when it comes time
for the remnants of the
"Steroid Era" to be eligible
for baseball's Hall of Fame.
They will give their spin,
their take, cast their blame
on this segment or that pow-
ering body that could have
done something about it and
didn't
They will say that they
have little choice but to vote
them in, because the num-
bers speak for themselves
and the era was so clouded.
But let me ask this why
was the era so clouded?
Those who suggest and
fall back on such diatribes
are the ones whose responsi-
bility it was to uncloud it.
As a columnist, as a beat
writer, as a journalist work-
ing for newspapers hungry
for top stories, these same
people somehow turned as
blind an eye as the commis-
sioner and the other
owner/cronies (as those writ-
ers would phrase it) and
those players' clean team-
mates.
They were there, in the
midst, as much a part of the
locker-room fray as Barry
Bonds trainer, who's in jail,
and former players who's
correspondence got out and
were summarily booted from
the game by the higher's up
(blind eye owners/commi-
sioner).
And yet, there were writ-
ers condemning Jason
Grimsely, above-named play-
er, and supporting the deci-
sion to get rid of him as
someone who let too much
out.
While the general fan base
is readily supporting the
notion of throwing out the
numbers accumulated by
players in this era, it's con-
venient for the Buster

Mercy-rule victory captures District 8

championship, sends Avon Park to state


By DANIEL HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID The
adage 'practice makes per-
fect' was rarely more fitting
than it was for Avon Park's
romp to the Dixie Youth
Majors (ages 11-12) District
8 tournament championship
this week at Lake June Field
in Lake Placid.
The Avon Park squad went
undefeated in four games,
only gave up a total of four
runs and scored more than
30.
The dominating run cul-
minated in a four-inning, 10-
0 victory over Okeechobee
American, moving Avon
Park to the state tournament
the weekend of July 14.


"We were the best team,"
center fielder M.J. Rhoden
said. "All our practice really
paid off."

The red-clad raiders wast-
ed little time putting their

Okeechobee

practice to
use and
exerting their
dominance,
putting up
four runs in
'the top of the
first inning.
Jarviel


Hart drew a leadoff walk,
moved to second on Billy
Rogers' single and came
around to score on Tyrone
Perry's double off the left-
center field fence.
Lane Crosson followed,


with a single that brought
home both Rogers and Perry
before Colton Brock brought
him home for a 4-0 early
lead.
Perry started on the
mound for Avon Park and
had little trouble getting
through the Okeechobee
lineup, retiring them in order
in each of his two innings of
work.
After a scoreless second
for the men in red, an inning
in which they loaded the
bases but couldn't score, the
punched another run across
in the third with Brock scor-
ing on Anthony Carruthers'
fielder's choice grounder.

Tina Miller (from left), of Wauchula; Ilana Levey, of Sebring; and Travis Moss, of Avon
Park; prepare Sunday to start a race across the pool. Other swimmers watched the com-
petition and cheered on the racers.


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Special
athletes splished and splashed
in the Avon Park High School
swimming pool last Sunday
during competition.
More than 40 athletes with
mental and physical disabili-
ties trained for three weeks at
the local pool in preparation
for competition.
The more advanced swim-
mers raced one lap across the
pool while beginners were
challenged in a shorter dis-
tance about half the distance
of the lap in the shallow end
of the pool.
The shorter race was
dubbed the "Noodle Race"
since racers swam from a
starting point toward a person
holding floating noodles.
"In watching some of the
athletes swim, I noticed they
were afraid of the deeper
water and could not go the
longer distance so we devel-
oped a race to fit their abili-


ties," Special STARS
Coordinator Cindy Marshall
said. "They all love to com-
pete and win awards so it was
fitting to create a shorter race
to encourage swimmers to
build up to the advance level.
I already have three begin-
ners who will advance next
year to the more competitive
level."
The lifeguards at APHS
also offered aquacize for
those who did not want to
compete.
"Marsha May and the life-
guards were marvelous in
keeping everyone moving in
the pool. They really offered a
lot of training techniques to
help the athletes to improve,"
Marshall said.
Lap swimmers were divi-
sioned and first place winners
were Angela Luft, Travis
Moss, Joe Singha and
Michael Finn. Finn had the
best overall time at 19:74.

The Avon Park All-Stars pose with their District 8 champi-
onship trophies, left, after their 10-0 win over Okeechobee
Wednesday night, qualifying them for the state tournament.
Lane Crosson, above, gets congratulations from teammate
Colton Brock after Crosson's three-run homer in the fourth
inning. Avon Park players pile on in celebration,, below, after
the final out was recorded in their state-qualifying win.


DIXIE
Continued from 1D
Further damage was avoid-
ed by Okeechobee when
Rhoden's line drive to right
was snared by their second
baseman and turned into a
double play.
Stephen Flowers then took
over on the hill for Perry,and
continued to mow down the
opposing batters.
A ground out to second and
two strikeouts made short
work of the Okeechobee third,
leading the way for the big
inning that put the game
away.
Hart began the top of the
fourth by drawing another
walk and moved to second on
another Rogers' single.
Perry then knocked Hart in
with a single before Crosson
set the Avon Park crowd wild
with a three-run dinger over
the center field fence.


Brock followed with a sin-
gle and eventually came
around to score on a, wild
pitch, bumping the lead to 10-
0, putting Avon Park just three
outs away from ending this
one early on the mercy rule.
Flowers got them two-
'We'd work on it
in practice until

we got it right.'

JARVIEL HART
thirds of the way there with
consecutive strikeouts to start
the last of the fourth, but a
sudden bout of wildness
allowed Okeechobee's only
two runners of the game, on
walks.
The dominance was so
complete that had Flowers
retired them in order in the
fourth, Avon Park would have
scored ten runs and.
Okeechobee would have just


gotten through its lineup
once.
The two walks turned the
order over, but Flowers came
back in fine fashion to strike
out Jacob Domer, for his fifth
in two innings, and stamp
Avon Park's ticket for the
state tournament.
"We'd been having scrim-
mages and practice games and
were doing OK," Hart said.
"But whenever there was a
weakness, or we did some-
thing wrong, we'd work,on it
in practice until we got it
right."
And it certainly paid off as
Avon Park was solid in all
'aspects of the game pitch-
ing, fielding and hitting.
"Once we got here and
started hitting like we did,"
Hart said, "our confidence
grew and we just kept going."
And while head coach Jon
Beer's goal at the onset of the
district tournament was to get
to state, a new goal had to be


established with the first one
complete.
"We want to go there and
make a statement," he said.
"It's going to be tough with a


lot of talented teams there. But regardless of who we face."
when we have our game going Giving them all the more
- out pitching, our hitting, our incentive to practice, practice,
defense we feel we can play
with anyone and will be tough

...but for me,
knowing God
has kind of put
everything into
perspective.
It's also taken off the
pressure. Like, I don't
have to handle
everything. I guess
that's what the people
at Unity call peace.
The bottom line is that
the more I get to know
God, the more it all
just works.
