Lake Placid Elementary

After patiently waiting for their own '
report cards, school administrators can
finally breathe that sigh of relief most- ..
ly. ^
Overall Highlands County's school ".
grades stayed nearly the same the aver-
age dropping by just a few percentage ,
points but the jewel in the school dis-
trict's crown this year is clearly Lake Placid i1
Elementary.
To earn an A grade, it needed 525 points
or more, but that didn't stop the school from .
crushing the goal by accumulating 611 points .
from student scores on the 7Floridva '
Comprehensive Assessment,Test and earning
the highest score in the district on the new sci- .
ence test. "A,
"I've been calling my entire staff today. 'p r
principal Carole Disler told the News-Sun t .
'Friday, the day grades were released. "We ha\e i
been a B school five years in a row and m ;"
Teachers have Worked so hard. I'm so pleased
and proud our teachers and students are getting
the recognition they deserve."
She. had a few comments on her science te ch- -
"Our fifth-grade science teachers are \er .
hands on," Disler said. "I feel those teachers put .,
us at the top of the scores." i
Still. the school only amassed 50 out o: a possi- ';
ble 100 points from the'science test. It ma\ seem
high compared to the scores at other school C
such as the 31s earned by Avon Park Middle. Alon
Park High and A.on Elementary, --but Disler can
seethe chance to improve on the new test.
"This is a nei suibjeci .re:i f.r our schools and n t
\ ill take \\ hile for us to teach it as effecti\el\ as \\e
can," she added.
Sun 'N Lake Elementary school principal Diane 'i-
Lethbridge was also excited about her school grade, .
returning to the A grade of years past after one year fj
with a C.. -
"We worked very hard and are very excited that e
have reached this gojl." she said.
The school was on par with the rest of the districts sci- i
ence scores, but.Lethbridge is confident about the ears
to come.
"The science test is a fairly new assessment and we
will be developing sitrtegies to help our students under-
stand the scientific"'method and provide more opportunities in a lab setting,"
she said.
After years of A grades, Hill-Gustat Middle School still did exceptionally'
well,,even though it n on't be able to prominently display an A-school banner.
Considering the new way in which grades are calculated, the school only
missed the cutoff for an A by one percentage point. HGMS also touts some of
the highest math and \rating scores in the district.


High schools seemed to struggle \\ith the reading portion of the test. with
only 30-40 percent of students meeting high standards and 40-50 percent mak-
ing learning gains. Middle and elementary schools in the district were 20 to
30 points higher in each category.,
Park Elementary had a relapse into previous grades after a remarkable
iimprovement last year, Two years of D grades preceded last year's A, and
although the school had enough points for a strong C, it was still 15 points
away from a B.
Lake Country, Lake Placid, Woodlawn and Avon elementary schools all
improved from a B to an A in 2007.

"We try to balance the

Rather, the money was budgeted to his

Man charged with sexual

ballery met victim on Web


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
Allen Altvater III (left) discusses the long and proud history of the Sebring Fire Department
with 29 year SFD veteran Deputy Chief Mike Roberts Thursday outside the downtown
Sebring firehouse. The two exchanged stories heard over the years during a tour of the build-
ing, constructed in 1927.


New book chronicles Sebring


Fire Department's past 46 years


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING As the
Sebring Fire Department
approaches 100 years of serv-
ice to the community, a for-
mer fire chief's grandson is
compiling a history of the
department for posterity.
An original book 'was put
together by Allen Altvater Sr.,
the first paid fire chief serv-
ing Sebring in the late 1920s
and early '30s. The book
takes the department from the
early days of a strictly volun-
teer organization in 1913-61,
the date of publication for the
original book.
Allen Altvater III has been
working on and off for a year
fixing typos and breaking
down the book into chapters,
but as he absorbed himself
into the project he found it
more and more interesting, he
said.
This led to the idea of
updating the original work to
include the last 46 years.
.Since 1961 the historical
firehouse itself has seen
celebrity activity, giving
physical to drivers in the 12
Hours of Sebring race -
including the infamous Steve
McQueen, and was used in
scenes for the 1993 film
"Wilder ,Napalm," starring
Dennis Quaid and Debra
Winger.
Recent hurricane activity
forced the renovation of the
firehouse, built in 1927, but
thanks to organizations like
the Historical Society and
Federal Emergency
Management Agency, com-
bined with funds from insur-
ance claims and city money
the fire house will look just as
it did 80 years ago, with an
updated interior.
"It's a neat old building,
there is a lot of history here,"
Deputy Chief Mike Roberts
said. "I used to love those
guys (former fire chiefs), com-
ing by. They had some great
stories."
Roberts has been with the
fire department since 1978


'Some of our kids

don't know the
history and if they

don't check into

something like

this, they won't

ever know.'

MIKE ROBERTS
Deputy fire chief

and traded stories with
Altvater on Thursday as they
toured the shell of the old
building. It is currently under-
going interior renovations
estimated near $450,000.
"This is the first-time I've
been upstairs since, second
grade," Allen Altvater III
said. "I walked over with my
class from Woodlawn."
In an excerpt from the orig-
inal book, it gives a little
detail as to the Altvater pres-
ence in the firehouse.
"The Mayor presented the
matter of Fire,Chief advising
that the Town had no Fire
Chief and that it was urgent
that one be appointed," the
book states. "The
Underwriters association
required it and that a man be
kept at the engine house."
While walking around the
station, the young Altvater
talked about how his father
spent days from his youth at
the firehouse after all, it
was his own father's resi-
dence while fire chief.
With all the history sur-
rounding the long-standing
department the book has
become quite an undertaking,
but Alien Altvater III does it
happily.
"Some of our kids don't
know the history and if they
don't check into something
like this, they won't ever
know," Roberts said.
There are still a few copies
of the 1961 publication at the
Sebring Hfistorical Society,

Altvater said, adding that
only 125 copies of the new
book will be printed.
"My grandfather didn't sell
his books, so keeping with
that tradition I'll .be giving
some to the historical society
and to Firemen Incorporated
to give to some of their mem-
bers," he said. "And I'll keep
a few copies for friends and.

Altvater said all of the
information in the book is
available at his Web site,
www.allenaltvater.org. The
site states unlimited copies of
the document can be repro-
duced and distributed as long
as they are distributed freely

uted without any alterations.
All of the 1961 book is

SEBRING On Thursday,
Justin Guadalupe Alvarez, 21,
was arrested and charged with
sexual battery:
Alvarez became acquainted
with his victim, a 25-year-old
woman, through an Internet
account, making contact and
gaining her confidence as'a
friend.
According to Detective
Melanie Kelly with the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, Alvarez acknowl-
edged that due to her mental
condition she would be easy
to take advantage of.
According to police
reports, Alvarez threatened
his victim by saying if she
told anyone about what hap-
pened he would kill her.


In an interview with the
suspect by the HCSO,
Alvarez admitted to commit-
ting the crime. Officials with
the HCSO believe he was in
contact with the victim for
several months.
During the
investigation,
information
was obtained
that Alvarez
corresponded
with numer-
lvare ous females
on his Internet
account and his computer was
seized as evidence.
The HCSO requests that if
any person has information or
concerns relating to Alvarez,
contact Detective Kelly at
402-7371 or Detective Robert
Neale at 402-7260.

STeenager flown to hospital after car-boat crash
. - . 4 A j ,K W I awIM H


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING An 18-year-old Sebring man
was flown to Tampa General Hospital after
crashing into a motor boat.
Florida Highway Patrol Cpl. Rene
Benavidez couldn't release the man's identify.
until his family was contacted.
Though his condition wasn't immediately
available, the trooper was concerned the vic-
tim might be critical.
Scott Spencer, Sebring, was towing his
Triton boat from Lake Jackson to Lake Lotela,
and was stopped for a red light on U.S. 27
north at New Life Way when he was "tagged."
"I just hope he's going to be all right,"
Spencer said of victim.
The Mercury motor from Spencer's boat
was on top of the Buick Century, which had a
caved-in roof and windshield.
Witnesses said the victim's car went under-
neath the trailer, and that he appeared distract-
ed leaning over as if reaching for some-
thing.
Brandy Hinote called 911 at 11:04 a.m. She
and Wes Fisher, both of Sebring, were behind


the crash. They said they saw everything.
Benavidez confirmed witness accounts,
noting there were no signs of evasive action,
such as skid marks.
"The boat popped up and I said, 'Oh my
God!'" Fisher said. "The kid didn't seem to
see it."
Hinote and Fisher joined another witness
- a South Carolina firefighter in tending
to the 18-year-old until EMS arrived on scene.
"He wasn't responsive, but we kept talking
to him, telling him to hang in there," he said.
Fisher said the firefighters and ambulance
arrived "in a matter of minutes" and he was
impressed with their professionalism.
"The county should be proud of their emer-
gency responders today," he said. "It makes
me proud."
Traffic was backed up in both directions on
U.S. 27 while a MediFlight helicopter picked
up its patient.
Spencer was taking his two children boat-
ing when the crash happened. All three of
them were not physically injured, he said.
"I never even.got it in the water," Spencer

MOAA will learn range history


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Although
thousands of military men
and women have been sta-
tioned at the Air Force range
east of Avon Park, very few
knew the history of the thou-
sands of acres known to some
as the Kissimmee Island.
Recent discoveries and his-
torical research have revealed
that the area once was home
to peoples ranging from
Indian tribes, settlers, squat-
ters and was a bustling job
producing turpentine and log-
ging industry.
Ronald Grayson, the Avon
Park Air Force Range regis-
tered professional archaeolo-
gist, will be the guest briefer
for the local chapter of the
Military Officers Association


of America at 9:30 a.m.
Saturday.
Grayson will focus on the
era from 1919 to 1928 when
the area had a company town
known as Nalaka which had a
population of more than 250
and boasted of churches,
schools, houses, commissary
and a cemetery. Prior to
Consolidated Naval Stores
(later to be known as
Consolidated Tomoka) own-
ership, the more than 65
square mile property had been
home to the Calusa Indians
and later the white horme-
steaders.
This is MOAA's "Coffee
An" session and there is no
charge. The MOAA board
will meet following
Grayson's presentation.

Auxiliary sends Hansen

House children to movies


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK The Avon
Park American Legion Unit
69 added more summer fun
for the children of Hansen
House by giving them -movie
gift certificates to use during
the long hot summer days.
Darlene Watkin has been
children and youth chairman
for the auxiliary for eight
years. She said the ladies of
the auxiliary have taken the
children's home to heart for
many years and donated thou-
sands of dollars to make the
home truly a place of comfort,
fun and good memories for
these wonderful children.
Auxiliary members have
painted bedrooms, baths,
bought computers, Christmas
toys and gift certificates,
stockings, carpet, towels,
cleaning supplies, hot dog


machine, stuffed animals.
bikes, and so much more.
This year at the end of the
school year the group did an
end-of-year picnic for the
kids with water slides, sno
cone machine, painted sun
porch, food and many prizes
for a full day of furi and good
times that held a value of
$1,600 by the time all was
said and done.
"We then had some extra
money and realized these kids
need some summer fun so we
got them movie passes,"
Watkin said. "I would hope
many more people will help
the kids out this long hot sum-
mer with things to do to get
them a\\ a f'iom the home "
Call Peggy or Donna at
382-0007 to help. "Let's all
share love for these kids all
year round, not just in the
winter months," Watkin said.

expended more than $920,000 in
overtime.
That accounts for about 57 percent
of what was budgeted this fiscal
year, which ends Sept. 30.
In addition, that overtime resulted
in $70,000 of FICA (Federal
Insurance Contributions Act) taxes
paid by the county plus workman's
compensation and retirement contri-
butions, which the News-Sun didn't
request.
The recommended balanced budg-
et will be printed Thursday, and pre-
sented to the board July 10.
By Friday, the Office of
Management and Budget hadn't pro-
jected overtime for fiscal year 2007-
2008.
Some departments, such as Road
and Bridge, are' reimbursed for as


much as 50 percent of the work it
performs, explained the depart-
ment's administrative coordinator
Gail Roebuck.
Road and Bridge earmarked
$100,000 in overtime the past two
budget cycles, she said. In 2005-
2006, it used about 61 percent.
With three months left this fiscal
year, that department used 25 per-
cent on projects such as grading and
repairing washouts, cleaning ditch-
es, hauling equipment and patching
railroad crossing approaches (after
rail companies performed their own
repairs to the crossings).
"We budget our overtime based on
our best guesses," Roebuck said in
an e-mail. "We have emergencies
that we have to respond to after
hours."
She noted Road and Bridge is
"disaster essential," responsible for
clearing roads after major storms.
. "Our budget may look high in that

area, however, it does not mean that
we intend to use the entire overtime
budget," she said. "Hopefully for us,
we do not."
From fiscal year 2005-06 to his
current budget, Clerk of Courts L.E.
"Luke" Brooker doubled projected
overtime to $28,000.
"We increased it significantly
based on two things, said Bob


Jamison, senior director of business
services for the clerk.
"The volume of tax deeds we
anticipated plus a projected increase
in recordings based on previous
years."
In addition, the clerk anticipated
overtime during installation of soft-
ware, hardware and other network
upgrades.
As of Friday, however, clerk
employees had accrued $9,900 in
overtime, and Jamison didn't expect
to pay out more than last fiscal
year's $11,000.
The new equipment increased his
employees' productivity, while the
anticipated workload never material-
ized, he explained.
The Supervisor of Elections, is
less than $1,000 from depleting the
$14,000 he budgeted for overtime.
And, the amount that he budgets
for part-time, temporary help wasn't
immediately available. Joe


Campbell's budget varies year to
year based on what elections are
scheduled.
In a recent conversation with the
News-Sun, Campbell.said his next
budget will be much higher because
of the January primary and the
November 2008 presidential elec-
tion.
Sheriff Susan Benton budgeted $1
million for her staff. So far, she's
paid out $861,000 in overtime 82
percent.
Overtime data from the property
appraiser and tax collector offices
wasn't readily available Friday.
Countywide, taxpayers have spent
more than $1.8 million in overtime
dollars, not include associated taxes
and benefits or two constitutional
offices.
The commissioners are expected
to trim about $1.7 million from its
current budget to achieve a state-
mandated decreased budget for
2007-2008.

"It's a big deal," Louise
England, executive director of
the Highlands County
Economic Development
Commission, said. "It's some-
thing that took a long time to
bring to fruition. The fact that
we were chosen as a catalyst
site shows that the work was
worthwhile."
The decision of choosing to
pursue businesses in the life'
and medical sciences was a
conscious one, done to try to
diversify the types of busi-
nesses that are in the region
"This is truly a major leap
for our region to select life
science instead.of warehous-'
ing and distribution,"
Willingham said. "We felt
like we needed to change, to
take a leap and reach a little
further than what's comfort-
able."
The new investments will
require a countywide effort to
train prospective workers in
-the high-tech fields.
Enterprise Florida and EDC'
will be working with local
school and workforce training
centers in putting specialized
training in place. ,.
"You need to develop skill
sets to develop industries cho-
sen for this project," England
said. "Supposing you have a
biotech or nanotech company
locating here. They require
particular skill sets aid you
need to think about what
those skill ,sets might bei
Improving your workforce is
never lost. Eventually you'll
need it, and if you have those
skillsets, you can use them."
The hope with the catalyst
project is that once one com-
pany relocates to the area,
others will soon follow suit.
"That's what the project is
meant to do," England said.
"It's meant to start things.
That one project will proba-
bly brifg other businesses
related to it.'Y
Enterprise Florida is a non-
profit public-private partner-
ship designed to "create bet-
ter-paying jobs by supporting,
attracting and helping create
business in innovative, high-
growth industries," according
to its Web site. .
The organization, the air-
port, and the EDC are work-
ing with the, other counties in
the south central region,
which includes ..Highlands,
Hardee, DeSoto, c.Glades,
Hendry and Okeechobee
counties, as well as the cities
of Pahokee and .Immokalee.

share in the potential profits
of any investment, and they

'This is truly a

major leap for

our region.'

MIKE WILLINGHAM
Airport director
are currently working to draft
a Memorandum of Agreement
that will lay out the terms.
"'When you locate a new
company to the area, it brings
new jobs, wealth and taxes,"
England said in explaining
why the benefits are shared.
"There has to be some way to
share the. increased wealth."
She added that the grant is
designed to "catalyze" the
south central region of the
state.
After the agreement
between the counties is com-
pleted, Enterprise Florida will
begin its marketing campaign,
which should happen at the
beginning of next year,
England said.
One reason why the air-
port's commerce park site was


chosen was because the prop-
erty is ready to be developed
quickly.
"A company can come inm
here and start to build in a
very short time frame,"
England said.
Willingham agreed, saying
the airport has lots ready to
go. "When we have a
prospect, we don't have to
find grants to do water, sewer,
roads," he said. "That will be
one major benefit."
Other factors that made the
airport's commerce -park
property attractive were the
availability of the airport ter-
'minal, the adjoining Four
Points by Sheraton Chateau
Elan hotel, and the airport's
location on a "connective cor-
ridor" between the Atlantic
and Gulf coasts.
Willingham is optimistic
about the potential benefits to
being a catalyst site, and says
the process could end up hav-
ihg a significant effect on the
region.
S"We're trying to develop a
platform for industry that
would bring people into the
community who would have a
profound effect on who we
are and who we want to
become," Willingham said.
"It truly could be a communi-
ty-changing project. It's
going to take some time, but it
was certainly worth the effort
and we're certainly excited."

The Department of
Environmental Protection,
which issues the landfill's
operating permit, requires
Arbuckle Creek Road remain
debris free. To do that, the
county relies on community
service those people pay-
ing a debt to society for their
brush with the law to pick
up litter.
It's done on Sundays,
requiring overtime-drawing
staff to, supervise the "free"
help.
"We have an excellent
record with DEP and we want
to keep it that way," Wheeler
said, explaining his crews
must stay on top of various
projects (such as expanding
the agriculture plastics dis-
posal cell and installing pipe
for leachate re-circulation and
gas collection).


The landfill shuts down for
lightning, often backlogging
garbage trucks. The landfill
sometimes stays open late to
ensure they're on time for
morning routes.
On-call technicians investi-
gate alarms on pump stations
or methane gas flares in addi-
tion to routine checks.
"We're at the erid of the
power line," Wheeler said;
"We get a lot of surges. Many
of our alarms are false
alarms."
In a memorandum to the
board, Wheeler said he hasn't
filled a vacant position for
several months and competent
temporary staff is hard to find
and retain.
In juggling his workforce,
Wheeler told the News-Sun,
it's usually more cost effec-
tive paying overtime than hir-
ing a temp, who must be
trained and isn't allowed to
operate certain machinery.
Adding full-time personnel,
he noted, isn't necessarily the

"We try to be conservative
with what we spend,"
Wheeler said. The landfill is
an enterprise fund not sup-

That revenue is deposited
into the county's general
fund. The ad valorem taxes
that also supplement the gen-
eral fund are being cut by
three percent due to state leg-
islation passed in June.

Being a jerk for the good of the community


TUFF N 9IT

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley

I spent an interesting, and
at times hysterical,
morning this week, play-
ing the part of a pushy
reporter. And-no, it wasn't
real life.
I was shadowing Art
Harriman, the American Red
Cross service center director.
as he and his crew of com-
munity volunteers prepared
for the hurricane season.
We were all taking part in
a shelter simulation, with
some of us acting as shelter
volunteers, and others as
troubled or troubling -
refugees from the storm.
In my case, I was supposed
to be the type of reporter who
doesn't take no for an
answer; the kind of a guy
who barges in where he's not
wanted.
For the record, the Red
Cross considers its shelters as
homes away from home. It
therefore guards its users,
and shields them from the
press. So the "pretend" me
was forcibly evicted, my
protests falling on deaf ears.


(Then the real me was
allowed to return so I.could
do this report.)
I have to admit, the issue
of the press and the shelter is
a dicey situation. Because a
storm is real news and people
have a need to know is a
shelter full, for example, or
ready for clients, do they
have enough to eat and so
forth and so on reporters
do need to collect informa-
tion.
But it is also true that
innocent people are away
from their homes under diffi-
cult conditions. Their need
for privacy is real, not theo-
retical.
This is why the Red Cross
attempts a middle ground.
Reporters may not simply
wander around, and they
must get permission before
taking any photographs. A
space away from the shelter
clients is set up for inter-
views instead, so information
can be passed on.
Pushy reporters, however,
are the least of the problems
most shelter volunteers face.
The point of the simulation
was to create more common
scenarios so volunteers could
learn how to react to those
individuals who are upset or
are upsetting the group.
How to deal with people
and pets, for example.
Or people with weapons.
Or people who are old and
confused; out of sorts and out
of place.
Or people who arrive
intoxicated and belligerent.
Or who speak no English.
Or arrive hungry, needing
something to eat.


p -
'r."
:II j..


Or people who are afraid
the end of the world is near.
Or what to do when people
have heart or panic or asthma
attacks.
Or children who run wild.
Volunteers have to be
ready, in other words, for the
best and the worst that
extreme stress brings out in
all of us.
The best, Harriman told us,
happens more often than not.
Most people are understand-
ing, patient and thoughtful of
each other.
The idea of the simulation
is to demonstrate the best
way to handle the others,
while at the same time creat-
ing, at least a little, the same
kind of pressure.
There certainly were
moments of chaos when
everyone was talking at once.
There were times you could
feel tension rise in the room,
and feel the frustration.


News-Sun photos by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Gloria Diaz (above, on right) tries to explain to Art Harriman why he can't simply wander
into the shelter to volunteer his services at the last minute. Harriman isn't taking no for an
answer, which amuses an actual volunteer Darlene Earle. (Left photo) Harriman pretends to
have a heart attack at a shelter as Phil Attinger, public relations manager for the Polk County Red Cross
chapter, pretends to apply cardiac pulmonary resuscitation. Each impact shelter has a law enforcement
officer and Amateur Radio Emergency Service team assigned to it. Efforts are being made to have a
nurse or emergency medical technician assigned to each shelter as well.


That was because many of
the simulators were, excellent
at playing their roles.
Christine Moorer was very
real as a confused and slight-
ly grumpy, elderly woman. "I
want to go home," she said
over and over, while heading
stubbornly for the door.
Fran Gloecher answered
every questionr,with the ,..
refrain, "I don't remember."
Bo Miller kept asking for
crackers, while his real life


wife Barbara said "No com-
prendo," to every single
question.
We spent a lot of time
laughing of course, but it
really was work. By the end
of the exercise I was mental-
ly tired.
Throughout the exercise,
which lasted three hours,
Harriman was.at the-center of
it all.
An experienced actor, he
took on the roles of the most


difficult people while keep-
ing us focused and making us
think.
One minute he was a dis-
interested driver insisting on
leaving a bus load of people
at the shelter. "My boss told
me to leave them," he sput-
tered in indignation, "I'm just
an employee. I'm not respon-
sible. I have places to go"
Then he morphed into a

New diner hits Main Street running


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun Correspondent
AVON PARK Dutchers Diner, a new
restaurant owned by John and Stacey Dutcher,
has opened on Main Street and customers have
already been making it a regular pit stop.
After. 30 years working for Clock
Restaurants (19 at the Avon Park store), John
Dutcher's dream of owning his own restaurant
has finally materialized.
"This was definitely a 'God thing,"'
Dutcher said. "My wife Stacey and I have
been talking about opening a restaurant and
God worked everything out here."
Dutcher received a phone call from the
property's owner and next door neighbor, Max
Duke, of Allstate Insurance Company, offering
him first dibs on it and he accepted.
Since Dutchers' acquisition of the building,

"I wanted to bring something to Avon Park

shelves along the walls, as well as framed car

tomers on June 25, John

ting so much better. There's a

ment going on and I am happy
to be a part of that. This

felt I needed to take. I like

interacting with them."
Having managed seven
stores, Dutcher has the expe-
rience to succeed in this
endeavor and is geared up for
a good finish.
"I expect this store to be
number one," he said.
With their "great staff of
about 10 people," a commit-
ment to "always try to treat
people right and serve a good
product," combined with the
uniqueness of the store,
Dutchers Diner just, might
speed past the competition

bully and got into a fist fight.
As a proprietor of a shelter
he fixated on keeping every-
one out of certain rooms, get-
ting in the volunteer's way,
drawing him away from work
that needed to get done.
He also played the part of
a well-meaning civilian who
kept insisting he wanted to
volunteer.
At one point, acting like an
over-the-top preacher, he
started yelling, "The storm is
God's punishment. We're all
going to die. Give me my
"Kool-Aid!"
In that case I thought vol-
unteer Glen Fowler, who in
real life is a Red Cross serv-
ice delivery specialist, had a
stroke of genius. He told the
good pastor to work on a ser-
mon, asked another volunteer
to show him to a separate
room where he could write
and then shut the door.
To finish off his perform-
ance, Harriman topped off
the morning by having a pre-
tend heart attack and dying
on the floor.
Of course, despite the fact
that we had a great deal of
fun, the work isn't a joke.
Unfortunately, Harriman said
during the wrap-up, people
are already becoming blas6
about hurricanes. Many are
totally unprepared either
physically or mentally.
That's why he is so


focused on getting the volun-
teers ready.
With 140 mobile home
parks in Highlands County,
in the event of a serious
storm, a great many people
are going to be displaced,
meaning the shelters will be
full.
I learned there are two
types of shelters impact
shelters to provide safety
during the actual storm, and
host shelters to provide a
haven after for those whose
homes have been destroyed
or severely damaged.
Impact shelters typically
open and close quickly. They
have to be able to withstand
the storm's winds. County
staff operate the impact shel-
ters with the help of Red
Cross volunteers.
Host shelters, which are
often churches, typically
open after the storm has
passed. They have to adhere
to Red Cross standards in
order to be called a Red
Cross shelter. That means its
volunteers go through Red
Cross training. Red Cross
shelters have to be available
to anyone seeking safe
haven- until it is full.
Churches may not proselytize
the people it takes in.
Harriman warns that help
will take time in coming after
a storm. Everyone should
have supplies to last at least
three days.
That is because a damage
assessment has to be riade,

so the right help can get to
where it is needed most, first.
Typically that assessment
takes 72 hours.
Harriman stressed to the
volunteers the importance of
crowd control, of staying
calm and being responsible.
Scared people are going to be
looking to you for guidance
and an example, he said. Use
tact,'be consistent, learn how
to go with the flow.
Harriman, the son of a
Marine, learned just such
skills as he moved with his
family all over the country.
Settling in at Savannah, Ga.,
as an adult, he spent many
years teaching, then joined
the Red Cross, ending up in
Polk County. Almost six
years ago he was given a pro-
motion and came to Sebring
as the director of the service
center here.
Harriman sets an example
by volunteering much of his
time. In addition to his work
with the Highlands Little
Theater, he is active with the
Teen Pregnancy Prevention
Alliance and is a member of
the Sebring Community
Redevelopment Agency.
In fact, Harriman is so
busy I had to be a pushy
reporter to talk to him at all.
Fortunately, thanks to his
training, I knew just how to
get it done.

Flying the friendly skies


I'm in Colorado as I type
my column this week, spend-
ing some time with my
younger sister and her fami-
ly. So far it has been great;
my sister and her husband
seem to think it is their pur-
pose in life to spoil me rot-
ten, and my nephew Ami
(pronounced "Oh-mee") has
been helping me hone my
video game skills.
This is the third trip I've
taken this year. I've already
traveledto Oregon and
Washington state for various
writing events. I have one
more out-of-state trip sched-
uled for this year. Unlike the
last three, I will be staying in
the Eastern time zone for that
trip.
All this means I've been
putting in a lot of times in
airports and on airplanes. I
am not yet rich, so I fly the
S regular people class, which
I've seen called "economy"
or "coach." I think they use
those names because "cram
them in like sardines" is too
long.
I've tried to get window
seats on these flights,
because they are far better
places to be than the middle
seat, where you spend the
bulk of your time sitting with
your elbows pulled in. This
qualifies as uncomfortable, at
S least in my book.
Then there is the fact that
the airlines have decided that
a great way to save money is
to cut off serving meals.
Granted, this might not be as
big of a loss as it sounds,
given that airline food has
never ranked as gourmet, but
it can mean a rumbling stom-
ach after a while.

You don't even get
peanuts. If you are willing to
shell out some cash, you
might get a large snack of
some kind. I once got a huge
bag of M&M's, which is
great if you're a chocoholic
like me but probably not
healthy.
The worse experience I've
had thus far in my travels
was during my trip back
from Seattle. I had to change
planes in Houston, an airport
that might be better than the
one in Atlanta, but maybe
not.
Anyway, I didn't realize
how close the airline I was
flying on was cutting things
until we landed and I
checked the time. I realized
that even as we were making
our way to the gate, my don-
necting flight was beginning
to board.
It might not have been
cause for alarm if my con-
necting flight was in the
same concourse. Of course,
professional fliers know that
it wasn't the case. The flight
I needed was in another con-
course, a long way away.
My two teenage sons
would've covered the dis-
tance without breathing hard
or breaking a sweat, and had
time left over to buy some
food. Needless to say, I am
not as fit as my teenage sons.

gered near the gate I heard

A lesson on the men
who adopted the
Constitution
Editor:
Everyone knows when the
Constitution was adopted but
what kind of men were they?
Our forefathers were a very
unusual group of men with
the greatest intensity of patri-
otism the world would ever
know.
On July 4' 1776, 56 men
three from New
Hampshire, five from
Massachusetts, two from
Rhode Island, four from
Connecticut, four from New
York, five from New Jersey,
Nine from Pennsylvania,
three from Delaware, four
from Maryland, one from
Carrollton, seven from
Virginia, three from North
Carolina, four front South
Carolina and three from
Georgia adopted the
Constitution.
Twenty-four were lawyers,
11 were merchants, nine were
farmers and large plantation
owners. These men were men
Sof means and well educated
when they signed the
Declaration of Independence
knowing full well that the
penalty would be death if
they were captured. The
wives and their families were.
kept in hiding and they
moved from one place to
another.. Even their husbands
lived in the forest and in
caves. When they did find
any of the family members,
they looted, burned down
their homes and killed the
families.
These 56 men were not
rabble-rousing ruffians; these
men were soft spoken men
who wanted "freedom" for
they stood straight and tall
Unwavering. They pledged
their support of this declara-
tion and freedom that would
bring independence and be
absolved from all allegiance
to the British Crown and all
the political connection of
Great Britain. But before all
this freedom could be, five of
the men were captured by the
British as traitors, they were
tortured, 12 had their homes
burned to the ground, nine of'
the 56 died from hardship
from the Revolutionary War,
died in rags, the list goes on.


While you celebrate the
Fourth of July, you can thank
the men who died for us to
be a free nation, for without
them we could be under the
British Colony. So go to the
beaches, parks or home bar-
becues and be proud to be in
this Nation of the Free.
Please do not forget our
troops that are in the war
zone overseas so that we can
have this picnic, so say a
special prayer for them.

Bush's support is
not evident
Editor:
President Bush honored
our troops in Iraq and
Afghanistan on Memorial
Day. He called them heroes,
sacrificing their lives to pro-
tect their country. Having
observed this war from the
beginning four long years
ago, permit me to list exam-
ples of how he has "honored",
those troops. This is difficult
for one who opposed this war
from the beginning and it is
especially onerous to be
accused with being against
those troops in this disastrous
war.
These are examples of how
President Bush "honored"
those heroes these past four
years. He alienated most of
the world with his imperialis-
tic policies; manipulated evi-.
dence to justify this war;
attacked Afghanistan as a
pretext to unilaterally invade
Iraq; ignored the generals on
the ground who wanted
300,000 troops to secure the
borders; let five weeks of
anarchy prevail and rebuked
the Iraqi army, dismissing
them with their weapons;
tried to fight this war on the
cheap; failed to monitor
funds for the troops, sup-
plies, equipment, armor and
weapons; sent 350 tons of
cash (billions) to Iraq and
lost it; and gave no bid bil-
lion dollar contracts to
Halliburton, Becktel and
friends, who bought oil,
food, etc. for "pennies" and
sold them for "dollars." The
food was of poor quality and


the supplies often never
reached their destiny. No
accountability.
Am I going too fast? The
people his staff sent to Iraq
were political appointees
who'had little or no experi-
ence/training for their assign-
ments. They did manage to
"use up" the funds with
shoddy results to show for
them. This is curious because
he has had from $400-$550
billion defense budgets year-
ly for six years, plus $1 tril-
lion off budget to fight this
war. Yet, the troops are far
short of armored vehicles to
protect them. The military
brass forbade the troops'
families to send money and
materials for same. The
troops had, to scrounge
around for scrap metal to
forge armor plates for their
vehicles.
The injured troops were
charged for meals while they
lay in hospitals ... these
troops who sacrificed for
their country. Now we learn
that even Walter Reed '
Hospital was poorly equipped
to handle the large number of
wounded troops there and
thousands more in facilities
across this nation waiting for
medical aid and rehabilita-
tion.
Even more telling was the
fact President Bush had
reduced the budget for the
military medical program;
had no clue about Post
Traumatic Syndrome and
brain damage, the most sig-
nificant elements of the
wounded and maimed in Iraq.
He even "honored" those
heroic vets who looked to the
V.A. by reducing that budget,
bureaucracy run amuck.
Those heroes went through
four years of war and the
military is discovering PTS
in 2007!
To further honor the
troops, President Bush
extended their tours of com-
bat duty one, two, three
times. This included the
National Guard arid
Reserves, whose standard
mission was to fill in tem-
porarily. He abrogated their
contracts to make them full-
time combat units. There are
more examples of such "hon-
ors," but our troops don't

It's storytime

"Once you get used to it,
the creative right side of
your brain will kick in and
be there for you."
Larry Levey is standing
midway of an honest to
goodness passenger train car.
The train car is part of the
Avon Park Depot Museum
and he's launching a two-
hour instruction for about 16
writers.
We 16 attendees deserve to
congratulate ourselves for
showing up. We were privy
to a writer's feast. Larry is
sharing with us the means to
develop our writing skills,
saying, "Writing is part art,
part skills."
Once we had introduced
ourselves, the class took off.
It was good to hear how far
along all of us are in our
writing endeavors and really
good to have proof as the
class progressed.
Here's an exercise you can
try at home. Give yourself
five minutes on a timer to
write, "I can remember the
first time I...," or write for
five minutes about one of.the
five senses relating it to a
personal incidence. Perhaps,
the smell of fresh baked
bread. Or, trigger your cre-
ative juices over a nationally
shared trauma like Pearl
*Harboror Sept. 11,2001.
We were prepped thusly:
Do not bore the reader,
include senses and feelings.
Good writing is rewriting.
Be descriptive and use action
verbs. No one is all good or
all bad. Be precise and use
details. Show, do not tell.
Write conversations, make
up dialogue. Create a sense
of place. Propel the story,
create su p'eise'.d "' -"*
Whefi witihig, even the-''
writer may not know where
the story is going. Have a
grabby headline. The head-
line and the opening words
work together. And for good-
ness sake, start with the
action!
"Juice it up. Keep para-
graphs short and vary sen-
tence length. Let it all flow
from your creative side, then
turn it over to your analytical
side to make it work."
"And be unconventional
grammatically."
We had time to read out
loud our three, five-minute
starts of about 75 words
each. We were all good!
Thanks Larry. Larry is a
News-Sun contributor with
great, credentials and ongoing
projects. He held this class
particularly for folks who are
ready to preserve their per-
sonal history for their own
family to treasure.
He said, "Write the indi-
vidual stories, then put them
together."
Are you inspired?

Solution for
annexation problem
Editor:
Regarding article "New
two rules cause Sebring to ax
annexations" News-Sun, June
22:
The problem seems to be
that the new tax formula will
not produce enough property
tax revenue to fund fire and
police protection and other
civic services for the areas to
be annexed.
It was my understanding
that "impact fees" were sup-
posed to solve the biggest
portion of that problem.
Maybe if the "fees" were
adjusted to the original
schedule (not the discounted,
partial rate in effect now) this
whole problem would go
away.
And for those who believe
that "impact fees" will dis-
courage new residents,
maybe these people should
be looking at the many exist-
ing commercial and residen-
tial properties no impact
fees, no additional sprawl.

U.S. dollar declines in
worldwide value
Editor:
Until the early 20th centu-
ry, economic inflations was
virtually unknown in the
United States. In terms of
purchasing power, an 1800
dollar was worth only 67
cents in 1900. Rather than
losing value, the purchasing
power of a U.S. dollar went
up 33 cents in the 19th centu-.
ry.
This trend reversed over
the course of the 20th centu-
ry. Although theU.nit, ed .
SStates..grew wealthi( and
more powerful, eclipsing the
economies of every other
nation early in the century,
the U.S. dollar's purchasing
power began a steady
decline. What cost a dollar in
1900 now costs $21.15. So,
what happened?
Early in the 20th century,
the Congress authorized the
creation of the Federal
Reserve Banking System to
serve as America's central
bank. Uniquely, the Federal
Reserve was not created as a


U.S.-owned central bank, but
rather, is made up of a con-
sortium of banks, most of
them foreign owned.
Until the Great Depression,
the U.S. dollar was tied to
gold, as it had been since the
passage of the Currency Act
of 1793. A dollar was
redeemable in gold, and
therefore, the supply of dol-
lars was finite. In the 1920's
the Federal Reserve began
issuing more dollars than
there was gold on hand to
back them to finance the
booming stock market. When
the market crashed in 1929,
the inflation and ballooning
government deficits put more
dollars into circulation than
there was gold to redeem
them.
President Franklin
Roosevelt ordered all private-
ly-held gold to be confiscated
to satisfy existing creditors
and the Banking Act of 1933
severed the link between gold
and the U.S. dollar.
After the outbreak of
World War II, America
became the armory to the
world, selling weapons to the
Allies worth billions of dol-
lars; for which it demanded
payment in gold. By war's
end, the majority of the
world's gold reserves Were
back in the United States.
The Bretton Woods
Agreement in 1945 made the
U.S. dollar convertible to
gold at the government level.
This established the U.S. dol-
lar as the world's reserve cur-
rency.
The war in Vietnam
drained the U.S. economy,
forcing the Fed to increase
the money supply, most of


which ended up as foreign
reserve currency holdings.
Runaway inflation, caused by
the artificial increase in the
money supply, began to
worry investors. By the
1970s, foreign governments
began demanding payment
for their dollars in gold.
On Aug. 15, 1971,.the
United States announced it
was "severing the link
between the dollar and gold"
and defaulted on its pay-
ments. In order to keep the
dollar (and the global econo-
my) from collapsing, the
United States had to find
some economic replacement
for the gold standard.
In 1973, Washington cut an
iron-clad deal with the
Saudis. The United States
would prop up the Saudi
regime in exchange for a
Saudi pledge to accept only
U.S. dollars in payment for
oil. The other Organization of
the Petroleum Exporting
Countries member nations
eventually followed suit.
Since this deal, all of our
U.S. presidents have paid
homage to the King Of Saud
and this is why Washington is
willing to look the other way
whenever the House of Saud
gets caught with its hand in
the cookie jar.
It is a symbiotic, if fragile,
relationship. The House of
Saud needs the United States
to keep its regime in power.
And the United States needs
the House of Saud to keep
the dollar from collapsing.
In 2005,.Iran announced
the creation of what he
called, the "Iranian Oil
Bourse." It is based on a
euro-oil-trading mechanism


that naturally implies pay-
ment for oil in Euros, rather
than dollars. The Iranian Oil
Bourse would allow anyone
willing either to buy or to
sell oil for euros to transact
on the exchange, thus cir-
cumventing the U.S. dollar
altogether. The Chinese and
the Japanese should be espe-
cially eager to adopt the new
exchange, because it will
allow them to drastically
lower their enormous dollar
reserves and diversify with
Euros, protecting themselves
against the depreciating dol-
lar.
:The Russians have inherent
economic interest in adopting
the Euro. The bulk of their
trade is with European coun-
tries, oil-exporting countries,
China, and Japan. Adoption
of the Euro will immediately
take care of the first two
blocs, and will, over time,
facilitate trade with China
and Japan.
The Arab oil-exporting
countries will eagerly adopt
the Euro as a means of diver-
sifying against rising moun-
tains of dcpiec: iiitg dolkli-_.
Just like rhe RLI.i..I" tihlli
trade is mostly with .
European countries, and

Their jihad against the United
States. Hugo Chavez, who
now sits atop the World's
largest proven oil reserves,
announced that Venezuela
was ready to move his coun-
try's foreign-exchange hold-
ings out of the dollar and into
the euro.
In spite of the skyrocketing


economy, the value of the
U.S. dollar continues to
decline in value against other
currencies, especially the
euro. And, for the first time
since WWI, the value of the
European stock market has
passed that of the United
States. European market cap-
italization rose to $1.57 tril-
lion, passing the U.S. market
value of $1.56 trillion.
European market shares are
outperforming U.S. market
shares by nearly a two to one
margin. And since 2003, the
euro has risen 26 percent
against the dollar.

Candidates don't even
know important issues
Editor:
I certainly hope the Kathy
Fountain panel is wrong.
Their stand on who will win
the presidency would be the
one who had the most star
quality and in essence who
can shoot the best line. They
weren't discussing the issues
except the Iraq war.
Though the war is impor-
tant, there are other things
that are also important, like
Homeland Security, which, of
course, is related to the war,
closing and protecting our
borders of the utmost impor-
tance, whatever it takes, call
a ceasing of immigration
until we can overcome the
burden we now have.
Enforcing our immigration
laws and making sure all
laws are obeyed in obtaining
citizenship, maintaining. our
sovereignty, withdrawing
from the United Nation can,
cleaning up our schools both
lower and higher places of
learning, making sure we
have professors that reinforce
the American ideals, teaching
our children American histo-
ry so they will appreciate
how this great country came
to be.
If we allow one world gov-
ernment, we will be like all
thE other countries. They
don't.seemito be happy .with..,
theirsand we certainly :won't.
be Let u' nec'ei forget, our
lorellathers p.aid great price
for the fipedoin we have so
long enjoyed and when our
children are deprived of
learning our history and how
our country was established,
they are not prepared to pro-
tect and maintain it.
Our government needs a
makeover, not our constitu-
tion, but other things. The
way to the White House
should not be determined by
who has the most money to


run the most advertising, but
the person with the best char-
acter and greatest love for the
country who sees the needs
and are willing to work to see
them met.
I'm afraid too many today
are after what they can get
rather than what they are
willing to give. We should
always have a desire to help
those who are less fortunate,
but we should first and fore-
most try to maintain our
independence. Anytime we
can provide our own needs at
home, that should take prece-
dence.
When what we eat is
shipped in, we have little
knowledge of how safe it is
and for sure, most of the fla-
vor and vitality has dimin-
ished.
We need to leave some of
the natural things God made
for our enjoyment. We do not
need wall to wall houses and
enough property should be
required for each so one
would be able to go around.
the house without using the
neighbor's yard. That's too
close; it promotes problems.
The best way to lose our
independence is to be
dependent on others for food
and water. We are already
suffering from water shortage
and year after year oranges
and cattle ranches are becom-
ing housing projects: not to
mention many farms of large
acreage in other parts of our
country are becoming devel-
oped into shopping centers,
etc.; this is not good. The
consensus is: it brings in
more taxes. This is true, but
at what price.
All this construction.is
temporary employment. We
are losing the factories that
once provided jobs with
financial security, which also
is partially responsible for
the depletion of the Social
Security fund, not to men-
tion, what Congress has
caused with their many
promises of things of little
value for promises in return
of political: U ir:port.,..which,-: .
they've paid for out.of the o ,-...
Social Security fund,
These are the culprits, not
the Baby Boomers. They paid
in like the rest of us, but it
has been grossly misman-
aged.
There other important
issues. Won't you join me in
prayer for wisdom to know
how to vote and that God
will supply the candidates
that He would have to lead
our beloved country.

LOOK
Continued from 1A
boarding call for my flight. I
staggered on the plane, ready
to collapse in my assigned
seat and contemplate what I
wouldn't be eating.
.But at least my planes did
not have to make emergency


landings. This was not true of
a commuter flight that took
off from New York and was
supposed to go to North
Carolina.
The flight did not have any
mechanical problems. The
pilot, as far as I know, was in
good health: The problem
was I am not kidding an


incident involving apple
juice.
According to the story I
read online, a 4-year-old
wanted apple juice. The stew-
ardess apparently wasn't
quick enough with the bever-
age, and the child threw a
tantrum.
This meant the plane


wound up landing in
Philadelphia, where' passenr
gers spent the night.
Imagine what would've
happened if the kid had want-
ed dinner.

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop


Fiery


brilliance

Our eyes follow the fire as
it shoots into the sky burst-
ing into fiery brilliance that
lights the darkness of the
night. Thunderous sounds
rattle under our feet and in
our chests with each magnif-
icent explosion.
Fireworks. A display we
look forward to annually on
July 4 a brilliant celebra-
tion that began when we first
gained our independence.
Many gave their lives
through the fire of battle; or
barely escaped to enjoy what
had been won. Battlefield
explosions were not glorious
- but horrific and devastat-
ing. Our independence didn't
come cheaply.
And with the war on terror
raging far from us, we must
not forget the cost. Perhaps,
the toll it took on our own
soil almost six years ago is
diminishing from our memo-
ry causing complacency.
Like a mighty, explosive
voice bursting into our con-
sciousness, remember how
shaken we were as a nation
and how great acost we
paid.
A recent reading of the
Exodus account of God giv-
ing The Ten Comnimandments
reminded me again of the
cost of the self-satisfied.
God had delivered the
Israelites from slavery.
Moses led them to Mt. Sinai
where God promised to meet
them. Exodus 19: 16-19,
NIV describes God's pres-
ence and the people's
response.
"...There was thunder and
lightning, with a thick cloud
over the mountain, and a
very loud trumpet blast.
Everyone in the camp trem-
bled. Then Moses led the
people out of the camp to
meet with God ... Mount
Sinai was covered with
smoke, because the Lord
descended on it in fire ... the
whole mountain trembled
violently, and the sound of
the trumpet grew louder and
louder."
The people had already
agreed that anything the
Lord said they would do. But
even after hearing his vol-
canic voice and feeling the
earth tremble, they were
impatient while Moses met
with God. That was their
undoing. As Moses was
receiving The Ten
Commandments, they con-
vinced Aaron to create a
golden idol. Their thundering
and lightning encounter with
the Living God had faded
into complacency.
The sound of God's voice
though it is often a still
small voice that requires
quiet hearts can also be
thunderous, seeming to come
from everywhere at once.
And, yet, we can become
as smug as those who stood
at the base of Mount Sinai
and experienced his majesty
only to so easily forget.
So as we delight at the
fireworks blazing through
the sky this Fourth of July, I
pray we'll be vigilant both
for our nation's freedom and
our freedom in Christ. Let
his fiery brilliance permeate
our lives. Selah

Jan Merop of Sebring is a cor-
respondent for the News-Sun.

SFCC announces Artist Series schedule


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Season ticket
packages are now on sale for the
South Florida Community College
2007-08 Artist Series. The series
features 10 shows that run from
November to March. The show time
for each performance is 7:30 p.m.,
and all performances are held at the
SFCC Auditorium, Highlands
Campus, Avon Park.
Starting out the series on Tuesday,
Nov. 20, is 3 Mo' Divas. A musical
celebration of class, sass, and style
crosses over eight musical styles and
more than 400 years. Three classi-
cally trained women showcase their
extraordinary vocal versatility, per-
forming everything from Broadway
to soul. If you saw the Three Mo'
Tenors last year, you will love this
show, which is co-sponsored by
Heartland National Bank and the
Center for Retina and Macular
Disease.
On Tuesday, Dec. 11, the SFCC
Auditorium stage will transform into
an ice rink for The Nutcracker On
Ice. The ambitious show is the
largest theatrical production of its
kind. Presented by the Russian stars
of the St. Petersburg State Ice Ballet,
the show features music from
Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker" and
more than 150 beautiful costumes.
This performance is co-sponsored by
Highlands Today and Brenner
Pottery and Craft Gallery.
Bowfire will take the stage on
Saturday, Jan. 5. This energetic
ensemble combines the talent of top
violinists and fiddlers, gifted backup,


musicians, and world class dancers.
This high energy theatrical event is
the hottest new show and is quickly
becoming an international success. It
encompasses styles as diverse as
classical, jazz, country, bluegrass,
and Celtic. The performance is co-
sponsored by Highlands Independent
Bank and Rick and Jean Moyer.
On Thursday, Jan. 17, six-time
Grammy award winner Art
Garfunkel will perform. An interna-
tional star, Garfunkel is best known
for his work with Paul Simon. Share
an evening with this Rock and Roll
Hall of Fame legend and his signa-
ture voice as he performs numerous
Simon and Garfunkel favorites and
songs from his most recent album
"Some Enchanted Evening," which
is receiving rave reviews. Florida
Hospital Heartland Division is proud
to co-sponsor this performance.


The Sofia Festival Orchestra, on
its debut U.S. tour, will stop at
SFCC on
Wednesday, Jan. 30. Founded in
1986, the ensemble features
Bulgaria's leading musicians and
former principals of Europe's best-
known orchestras. The program
includes the works of Prokofiev,
Grieg, and Brahms. The orchestra is
co-sponsored by Mary Ellen and
Marcia Ward and Highlands
Regional Medical Center.
On Thursday, Feb. 7, Time for
Three will perform. Increasingly
gaining attention as one of
America's unique ensembles, Time
for Three explores repertoire that
stretches far beyond the limits of
classical music. Featuring two vio-
lins and one double bass, they dazzle

Developing the wonder through discovery and exploration


Observe little children and
take note of their facial
expressions, the way they
mimic us or others yet
with their own unique per-
sonalities. Notice how their
eyes light up when we spend
time with them and show
them the wonders of nature.
Children love discovery
and exploration.
On a recent trip to North
Carolina to visit our son and
his family, we had the joy of
experiencing the wonder in
our grandson's eyes over
everything that came his
way.
The memories are forever
etched in our minds and we
feed on them like a plant


pulling water out of moist
soil. I
Jonathon was 2 years and
five months old when we
saw him in April. He spoke
quite well and appropriately
for his age. Like the time we
were all laughing at some-
thing around the table and he
piped up and said, "What's
goin' on here?" gesturing
with his hands and joining in
our laughter.
But, I particularly enjoyed
the one on one time when
we played together espe-
cially outside. He also
'helped' us do some garden-
ing. What I have always
enjoyed about parenting and
now grandparenting is the


opportunity to teach along
the way.
For example, when we
admired the trees blowing in
the breeze, I asked Jonathon,
"Who made the trees?"
He looked at me as I said,
"God made the trees."
Then I said, "Who made
Jonathon?"
Again he looked at me and
I told him, "God made
Jonathon."
As he 'helped' me rake


pine needles out of the
flower bed we were about to
landscape, he learned yet
another few words and their
meanings.
One day we went to a
nursery to look at some
plants. As we walked
around, he smiled in recog-
nition of the pine needles on
the ground. Then we picked
up a pine cone and looked it
over again identifying it as
God's handiwork.
I pointed above him at the
many still on the tree and he
made the connection to those
that had fallen on the
ground.
The Bible tells us in
Deuteronomy 6: 5-9, NIV, to


teach our children about God
and his commandments,
"when you sit at home and
when you walk along the
road, when you lie down and
when you get up."
Every moment with a
child is a time to develop the
wonder. Little ones are so
fresh from God that their
hearts are tuned in to him.
Parents are given a sacred
trust to point their children
in his direction.
We prayed at mealtimes
together and he would say
"A.....men!" Then his
mommy and daddy began
saying bedtime prayers. At

Friends & Neighbors


TROPICAL HARBOR
Barbara Kelleher
LAKE PLACID Our regularly
scheduled coed coffee was a little
different June 18 because everyone
was busy about trying to make cof-
fee and put out the cookies, it seems
someone forgot they had volun-
teered for this date. We all got a kick
out of it and somehow the coffee
was delicious and worth waiting for.
Our emcee was Louise Smith,
who introduced our park manager,
George' Susco. George told the resi-
dents that all were going to receive a
letter regarding planting trees and
plants all over the lots, which makes
it difficult for the workers in the
park to have to cut the grass with the
large riding mowers and it takes a lot
of extra time to cut the lawns prop-
erly. Also please see that all hoses
are off the lawns when the men are
cutting, since this also takes up extra
time for the men to roll up your
hoses. It has been noticed that we
have animals eating the dead fruit on


the ground, so please take the time to
pick up fruit that falls from the trees.
If we take a little effort to do these
things this will help the workers
considerably.
George turned the program back
over to Louise, who welcomed
Regina Garner back following her
knee surgery and rehab care. Regina
thanked all the residents for their
cards, visits and prayers.
We are happy to see Shirley
Rose's grandson, Christian, visiting
his grandparents; his daddy is one of
our servicemen stationed in Iraq.
Joan Peterson introduced two of
our speakers from Ace Home Care.
They are Carol Kelly, a registered
nurse, and Cecilia Maris, social
worker for the program, who will
inform the residents of the many
services Ace Home Care provides in
order to keep you well and at home
rathe" than having to gd to an assist-
ed living facility.
Rachel Frances told the group that
she has tickets on sale for the carry-
in dinner June 28. Please let her
know if you want white meat chick-
en or the dark meat. This will be a


picnic type dinner so please bring a
dish to pass and your table settings.
We plan to honor residents that have
been married the longest and the
shortest time, so plan to come. It will
be lots of fun.
Mary Ann Lane told the group that
she has room for only one more lady
to attend the Lady Day Out
Luncheon, which is June-19.
Louise read the names of the resi-
dents who had a birthdayor anniver-
sary the week of June 17-23. Our
pianist, Virginia Tharp, played the
birthday song and we sang to Duane
Dean and John Chapman; no one
was present for the anniversaries.
Helen Burgan asked if anyone was
interested in volunteering about two
hours of their time on a Saturday
morning to assist with the residents
at the nursing home who like to play
bingo and help celebrate the resi-
dents birthday by helping with the
birthday party that happens to take
place during each month. This is
usually done the third Saturday of
each month. It is very rewarding and
the patients are always so happy to
be recognized.


If anyone would like to help,
please contact Helen.
The meeting ended with the ladies
from Ace Home Care telling about
the services that their agency can
provide.
Sunday of course was Father's
Day. We were all so proud to see
Lloyd Buero's picture on the front
page of the newspaper, with a tribute
written by his daughter. Lloyd and
his wife Fran have lived in Tropical
Harbor for more than 15 years.
Arlene and Robert Clouston's
daughter and son-in-law arrived in
Lake Placid coming in from.
McHenry, Ill., in order to celebrate
their parents 59th wedding anniver-
sary. It was also a family reunion
since Keith Clouston, their son, also
joined the family driving down from
Lakeland. It was a wonderful family
get together.
Barbara and George Kelleher went
to Belle Glade and celebrated
Father's Day with their daughter
Patricia and her husband Michael
Underwood, along with their grand-
daughter Kellee and her two little
girls Chloe and Terryn, Mike's


mother Ann and his son Casey. We
all enjoyed steaks on the grill with
salads and a delicious ice box cake.
Ladies coffee on July 19 we had
13 gals present. We are all happy to
see Cheron Piper back from her
vacation.
Rachel Frances was the emcee and
prepared the coffee. The meeting
was very short since most of the
women were going to attend the
Ladies Lunch Out. We had 36 ladies
attend the luncheon, which was held
at Lakeview Gardens Restaurant in
Sebring. Mary Ann Lane was in
charge of the arrangements. All
seemed to have a very nice time.
The Mustangs, our Men's Lunch
Out, was held at the Golden Corral
in Lake Placid and according to
Charlie Price, they had 24 men
attend the luncheon.
Just a reminder we only have a
week and a half left before the
Fourth of July so get your tickets
early for the various events. Thelma
Cecil and her committee have them
for sale.

Foam on the lakes typically a natural occurring phenomena


Seeing foam on the lake's surface
is not an unusual sight. Often times,
when people see foam on the
water's surface or beach area, they
may believe that it is caused by
detergents or other man-made pollu-
tants. In reality, most of the time
the foam is the result of a natural
process.
When you see foam along the
lakeshores, usually it is caused by
the natural death of algae, fish and
aquatic plants under the surface. As
you know, algae, fish and plants are
made up of organic material and
when they die they decompose.
The oils contained in their cells
are released and float to the surface.
Once the oils reach the water's sur-
face, wind and wave action push
them to the shore.
The concentration of the oil
changes the physical nature of the
water, making foam formation easi-
er. The turbulence and wave action
at the beach introduces air into the
organically enriched water, which
forms the bubbles or foam that you
see.
Foam normally forms in waters
with high organic content. You may


have noticed that
some of the bod-
ies of water in
Highlands
County have a
brownish tint.
This is caused
by a substance
called tannin,
which is what
gives wood its
brown col-
oration. Tannin is
released into the
water when wood

From The

decomposes. It is a common occur-
rence to find foam in these dark
colored waters as well as our lakes
due to the high volume of organic
matter found there, A good example
is a cypress swamp.
Not all foam is a natural occur-
rence however. Sometimes the foam
does indicate that pollutants have
been released into the water. One of
the methods that are used to help
determine if the foam is natural or
detergent based is to smell it and
look at it.
Natural foam should have an
earthy, fishy odor and the color is


generally off-white, tan or brown.
Foam caused by detergents and
other man-made substances would
most likely have a perfume smell
and would be whiter in coloration.
Other suggestions given from the
Michigan Environmental Assistance
Center include the following:
Wind direction or turbulence:
Natural foam occurrences on the
beach coincide with onshore winds.
Often foam can be found along a
shoreline and streaks of foam may
form on open waters during windy
days. Natural occurrences in rivers
can be found downstream of a tur-
bulent site.
Proximity to a potential pollu-
tion source: some entities such as
the textile industry, paper produc-
tion facilities, oil industries, and
fire fighting activities work with
materials that ctuse foaming in
water. If these materials are
released to a water body in large
quantities, they can cause foaming.
In addition, the presence of silt in
water, such as from a construction
site can cause foam.
Presence of decomposing
plants or organic material in the

water.
Feeling: Natural foam is usual-
ly persistent, light, and not slimy to
the touch.
If you do see foam on the water,
chances are very good that it is nat-
ural. Foam from detergents and
soaps are fairly uncommon in
today's world especially in large
quantities. Since detergents today
are composed of biodegradable


ingredients, they generally do not
have the ability to cause the foam
that we see on the water's surface.

Grace Jahnke (left), Marie Farmer, Elke Tagesson, Scott Jahnke, and Anna Schmidt
rehearse a dance routine from 'A Chorus Line' at Highlands Little Theatre. The students
are learning about musical theater in a dual enrollment class being offered by South
Florida Community College through the Governor's Summer Program for Gifted and
Talented Children at SFCC.


Classes to begin at Highlands Art League


Local artist Ann Watson
to teach 10-week course,
which begins July 5
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING New classes will begin
at Highlands Art League by local artist
Anne Watson. On Wednesday mornings
and Thursday evenings, she will teach
Painting in Oils or Acrylics for all ages
and levels.
The Thursday class starts July 5 for 10
weeks and will run from 6-9 p.m. down-
stairs in the Museum Education Center.
There will be no class the second
Thursday of each month..
Cost of the class is $150 for members
and $180 for non-members. Participants
can request a supply list from Watson by
e-mailing anne@ annewatsonstudio.com.


The Wednesday class starts Aug. 1 and
will be from 9:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
downstairs in the Museum Education
Center. It will meet every week for three
months.
Cost is $15 per class for members and
$18 per class for non-members. Pay only
for the weeks in attendance.
Again, participants can request a sup-
ply list from Watson by e-mailing
anne @ annewatsonstudio.com.
"As a lifelong painter, I eagerly look
forward to guiding students toward
achieving their goals in this most versa-
tile (and forgiving) medium.
"These studio-style sessions will
afford each student the chance to work at
their own pace in the company of others,
honing their skills and discovering their
own unique gifts and expressions,"
Watson said.
She explains that sessions may include


a break during which participants and-
instructor will discuss some of the most
exciting aspects of our creativity, includ-
ing how to overcome some of the obsta-
cles everyone faces.
"As time permits, we will also cover
some of the 'bedrock basics' that have
proven to be such a fruitful foundation
for my own work, and for so many before
me. It is my hope that future classes
might include painting from life, paint-
ing en plein aire, and assembling our
own compositions.
"I have worked as an artist in industry
in recent years, and am very excited
about having the opportunity to share
what I have gained from that perspective
and from my (now many) years of paint-
ing experience."

Draft, like Finals, short on drama and they got the wrong guy!


It's not that I dislike Joakim
Noah at all quite the opposite.
You have to respect what he
added to the two-time champi-
onship run with the Gators his
passion, the excitement he adds
with his non-stop energy.
And you have to love a guy
with the cajones to pull off the
outfit he did at the NBA Draft
Thursday night Seersucker
suit, bow-tie and the dread-
lock/mane/boufant/poofy-afro
thing he calls his head of hair in
a pony-tail.
And as they say, "you can't
teach seven-feet."
All of these things make him
an attractive addition to a team
in the NBA.
He brings boundless energy,
marketability and height.
I just wish the Bulls didn't
take him.
Again, it's no knock on him
as he's exactly the type of play-
er the Bulls like.
It's just that he's exactly the


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne
type of player they don't need
right now.
Their roster is full of ener-
getic, passionate, hustling,
coachable guys.
It was with that roster that the
team made it to the second
round of the playoffs this year,
where their most glaring weak-
ness continued to show a
dominant offensive inside pres-
ence.
A guy who, when the.shot
clock was running down, or


when Ben Gordon was in the
middle of another 3-16 shooting
night, that you could dump the
ball down into and be assured
of a couple of points most
times.
Sure, Joakim will get his
share on offensive rebounds,
putbacks, the occasional ally-
oop and from being a big man
out on the fast break.
But again, they already have
a boatload of guys that fit that
very bill.
It was predictable, however,
that he was the way the Bulls
would go.
As I said, he's their type of
guy, which is nice.
But surely they could have
found a way to find a guy they.
actually need.
Most of the rest of NBA
Draft day played out like that -
interestingly, much like the
actual season played out.
A whole lot of hubbub
beforehand, a lot of speculation,


a lot of media hype.
And then, just like the NBA
playoffs as they came to their
climactic finish it was too
much ado about nothing.
Gamett and Kobe stayed put
amid the wild speculation of
them moving every which way.
But, oh wow, Zach Randolph
was sent to New York, yawn.
Oh, and Ray Allen shipped to
Boston in a deal that brought
another lottery pick to Seattle,
Georgetown's Jeff Green, to
join forces with Kevin Durant.
I'm sure in Seattle people got
excited and all a-twitter.
But that could just be from
the coffee.
I blame myself well, actu-
ally, the business I'm in.
It's weird that I'm part of the
sports media and yet I continue
to see the problems that they/we
cause.

fishing ..

Reports from around our
local area show that bream
fishing is very good.
Most anglers are catch-
ing their limits of bluegills
and shellcrackers.
Even those who are not
limiting out are bringing in
heavy stringers of both it
seems the bluegills prefer
live crickets while shell-
crackers are biting better on
worms.
It is a great time to get
out on the lake if you don't
mind the heat, but it is just
common sense to keep an
eye peeled for those after-
noon thunderstorms that
central Florida is famous
for.
They usually make their
presence known long before
their arrival.
When those dark and low
hanging clouds appear on
the horizon, it is time to
start the outboard and get
closer to shore.
I remember a few times
when I was caught in bad
weather and wondered if I
would survive it.
My worst flight occurred
in Puget Sound.
Some forty years ago, I
accepted a job in the
Seattle area and moved my
family there.
My wife had relatives
living there, so we did have
a few friends to greet us.
The job turned out to be
a lot less than anticipated. I
very quickly remedied that
and found a good job with
a newspaper in Everett,
north of Seattle.
A cousin, Norman, who
lived nearby, helped us find
a large two-story house just
a few miles west of Everett,
high on a bluff overlooking
Mukilteo Bay.
The view from our front
porch was superb. Just
below, at the foot of the hill
we were perched on lay the
Coast Guard Station and a
mile or two farther out we
could see beautiful
Whidbey Island when it
wasn't raining.
Yes, it sure does rain in
western Washington.
After getting sort of


Lloyd Jones


acclimated, Norman and I
set out to do some fishing.
Norman called me ohe
morning wanting to go
trolling for salmon in the
bay since the weather was a
little drier and nicer than
usual.
Norm brought his 10-
horse Johnson and we rent-
ed a 14-foot aluminum boat
after lunch and we set out
for a bit of afternoon
trolling in the bay.
The trolling went
smoothly for a while and
we caught a couple of small
salmon.
I thought we were getting
a little far out but Norm
assured me that we had to
get out to where the salmon
were.
Figuring that Norm knew
what he was doing, I felt a
little better.
It is normally cloudy and
drizzly in western
Washington but when the
breeze got up and the
clouds seemed lower and a
little darker, I began to get
uneasy.
About that time, Norm
said that we should maybe
work back in toward shore
since the fish had stopped
biting.
About then, the wind and
the. waves picked up and
the boat began to kind of
waller around.
The weather got bad real
quick, waves were now
taller than the boat and
when we were down in the
trough, we couldn't see
anything but the clouds.
The rain was now pelting
us pretty good.
The little motor sort of
groaned as we climbed a
wave and seemed to sigh
as we slid down the other
side.
The wind world blow the
exhaust fumes in on us and
I was feeling nauseous and

NBA
Continued from iD
It's not that I dislike Joakim
Noah at all quite the opposite.
You have to respect what he
added to the two-time champi-
onship run with the Gators his
passion, the excitement he adds
with his non-stop energy.
And you have to love a guy
with the cajones to pull off the
outfit he did at the NBA Draft
Thursday night Seersucker
suit, bow-tie and 'the dread-
lock/mane/boufant/poofy-afro
thing he calls his head of hair in
a pony-tail.
And as they say, "you can't
teach seven-feet."
All of these things make him
an attractive addition to a team


,in the NBA.
He brings boundless energy,
marketability and height.
I just wish the Bulls didn't
take him.
Again, it's no knock on him
as he's exactly the type of play-
er the Bulls like.
It's just that he's exactly the
type of player they don't need
right now.
Their roster is full of ener-
getic, passionate, hustling,
coachable guys.
It was 'with that roster that
the team made it to the second
round of the playoffs this year,
where their most glaring weak-
ness continued to show a
dominant offensive inside pres-
ence.

clock was running down, or

Reports from around our
local area show that bream
fishing is very good.
Most anglers are catching
their limits of bluegills and


shellcrackers.
Even those who are not
limiting out are bringing in
heavy stringers of both it
seems the bluegills prefer
live crickets while shell-
crackers are biting better on
worms.
It is a great time to get out


on the lake if you don't mind
the heat, but it is just com-
mon sense to keep an eye
peeled for those afternoon
thunderstorms that central
Florida is famous for.
They usually make their
presence known long before
their arrival.


When those dark and low
hanging clouds appear on the
horizon, it is time to start the
outboard and get closer to
shore.
I remember a few times
when I was caught in bad
weather and wondered if I
would survive it.

BLUE
Continued from 1D
Despite having the same
amount of hits as Sebring,
West Volusia was unable to
create any momentum thanks
to a slew of diving catches
and heads-up plays, pro-
pelling the blue-and-white to
a 3-2 win in the opening
round oF the Dixie AA
Pitching Machine State
Tournament.
Shortstop Trey Frazier
anchored the defensive effort
N\ith two diving grabs in the
hole and totalled seven
putouts
"Trev is one of the leaders
of the team," Crouch raved.
f'When'he's on, the team real-
ly gets behind him and they
Vid today. The defense really
picked it up a bit. We really
worked on it because, actual-
lN, in districts our offense was
better."
Sebring's offense, which
dominated.in the district-tour-
nament, started slow early,
accounting for only two base
hits in the first three innings.
"I think the reason we did-
n't hit the ball is because they
have those machines set about
eight miles-per-hour slower
than they had in districts,"


said Crouch. "But they did a
great job adjusting."
That adjustment finally
came in the fourth inning
when the blue-and-white
exploded for three runs to go,
ahead for good, 3-0.
Frazier, who went 2-for-3
with a double, scored his
team's first run of the game
when the shortstop reached
first with a single.
SJosh Crouch followed with
another one-bagger before
Jimmy Peck stepped to the
plate and ripped a two-run
single.
Peck would then make the


lead three on a bases-loaded
groundout.
Sebring's only blip came in
the final inning when West
Volusia rallied for a pair of
runs to avoid the shutout.
The home team, for the
sake of contradiction, saw
their comeback fueled by a
pair of defensive miscues by
Sebring when Dylan Stevens
bunted to open the inning and
the throw to first sailed into
rightfield.
Stevens then moved to third
immediately when the relay
throw also went awry.
A newly energized West

Sebring 'pitcher' DJ. McPhail, above, fires to first basegirl Crystal Grimaldo to record an out
against West Volusia Saturday. As the umpire signals the final out, left, Bubba Chavis and
Trey Frazier raise their arms in victory as Sebring downed West Volusia American in
Saturday's AA State Tournament first round action.


Volusia capitalized on the
play when Willie Ortiz dou-
bled to drive home his team's
first score of the game.
Anthony Sprague then
chased Ortiz home with a sin-


gle to make it 3-2.
But with a runner on,
Cannady closed the door with
his diving catch down the line
to seal the win.
Sebring now advances to


the winner's bracket and will
meet the winner of the
Callaway and Spring Hill
American first-round matchup
at 4:30 p.m. today in
Lakeland.

ball cost him, as all runners
were safe; with another run
crossing the plate.
Seth Abeln then made the
mistake all the more damag-
ing when he slashed a double
to the left-center field gap to
bring two more runs across.
On out later, Hoffner's
ground out to short brought
Mays in and Sebring had a 5-
0 lead.
With the big cushion,
Hoffner set about his business
on the mound and set down
the side in order before
Sebring tacked on another run
in the third on Townsend's
RBI single to score Griffin,
who had singled.
The home team's Justin
Morgan got the first
Okeechobee hit of the game
when he doubled to left with
two out in the bottom of the
third, but second base was as
far as he would get.
Sebring manufactured
another run in the fourth with
Jonathan Knight drawing a
walk, stealing second and
moving to third on Ware's
ground-ball out before racing
home to score on a wild pitch
for a 7-0 lead.
Ware then took over on the
hill and set Okeechobee down
one, two, three giving Sebring
a chance to end it early on a
mercy rule if they could just
'push three more runs across
in the fifth and hold the pur-
ple-clad home team down.
The team got two-thirds of
the way there with Hoffner
grounding out to bring home
Abeln and Knight knocking
Nate Green in with a single.
Ware continued his strong
pitching, getting out of the
bottom of the fifth quickly -
setting the stage for the big
Breakout.
With one out in the sixth,

Kyle Yarbrough blooped a
single to right before Tijerina
legged out an infield single.
May followed with another
single of the infield variety to
bring Yarbrough home and
walks to Abeln and Gunnar
Westergom brought in
Tijerina.
Hoffner then followed with
a grounder with the throw
going home to get the force at
the plate.
But in trying to get the dou-
ble play at first, the throw
sailed high and both Abeln
and Westergom were able to
scamper across the plate for a
13-0 lead.
Abeln came on to pitch the
bottom of the sixth, needing
three outs and less than four
runs to end ttlis one early -
figuratively, as the start of the
game had been delayed an
hour-and-a-half by rain.
Tyler Finney got
Okeechobee one run toward
the goal of extending the game
when he doubled, advanced to
third and scored on a wild
pitch, but that would be all she
wrote as Abeln retired the side
shortly after that.
"It was a good night for us
in our goal of getting to state,"
the elder Abeln said afterward.
"Everyone got a chance to
play and get some game expe-
rience. We played great defen-
sively and we hit the ball well.
We've got just one more to go
and I hope to get it wrapped up
quickly so we can get ready
for the next step."
The first step would be
Saturday's game two of the
series, results were not avail-
able by press time, but if
Friday's 13's didn't hurt
them, Saturday was likely a
day in the park.
