IE' i Branham murder trial set to begin Oct. 8


Venue for trial

still not decided
By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
WAUCHULA The first-
.degree murder trial of former Avon
Park police officer Michael
Branham has been set for Oct. 8.
And in an odd bit of symmetry, the
status conference to determine the
trial date took place on Thursday,
the two-year anniversary of his
wife's death.
Branham was indicted for first


degree murder after Janette
Branham was found dead at the
couple's Wauchula home on July
26, 2005.,She was shot 13 times.
Branham pled self-defense, saying
his wife attacked him with a pair of
scissors.
State Attorney Stev' in
and Lakeland defense, ey
Lawrence Shearer to jit
Judge 'Michael Huntel ey
were prepared to begin in
October. The attorneys I a
one- to two-week -- nd
Houchin said the bulk /it-
nesses are faw enforcer on-
nel from Highlands dee


counties.
The defense's motion for a
change of venue was also discussed
at the status conference. Shearer
said he doubted that a fair and
impartial jury could be found for
the case because word-of-mouth
locally would prevent jurors of
being impartial.
"Every homicide gets attention,
especially in a small community,"
Shearer said, "and Hardee County
Hasn't had that many homicides."
In response, Houchin said he
would be "shocked" if an impartial
jury couldn't be assembled in
Hardee County, citing other murder


cases he tried there.
"The people of Hardee County
have just as much a right to partic-
ipate in the judicial process as any-
one else," Houchin said. "I've
never had a problem picking a jury
here."
Houchin requested arguing the
change of venue motion in October
on the same day as jury selection,
by seeing if ah impartial jury could
be chosen before deciding whether
to move the trial. Shearer called
Houchin's idea "a waste of judicial
resources" and requested an earlier

AVON PARK An effi-
cient and quick response
from the Avon Park Fire
Department kept a bad situ-
ation from turning worse
Wednesday night, when a
police officer noticed a
house fire at 41 E. Wolf St.
Getting the alarm at 8:42
.p.m., firefighters quickly
contained the fire that had
started on the back- porch
a nd spread 'to the whole
house.,
"The fire was totally
involved when we arrived,"
Captain Robert Border.said.
SAlthough the exact cause
is still undetermined, and is
still under investigation,


Border said it has been
ruled an accidental fire.
"It's a bad deal," said a
neighbor."But it could have
been worse if it had spread
to the adjoining houses. The
fire department really did a
good job of containing the
fire."
Wes Massey, who along
with his wife Renee, lived
in the house, but was at
work at the time of the fire.
Son Austin waas at church
and daughter Taylor was

Avon Park asks Habitat

about screening process


Trouble at home in
Placid Lakes sparks
questions from council
By BARRY FOSTER
SNews-Sun correspondent
A:VON PARK A dis-
cussioi of fee waivers for a
planned Habitat for
Humanity home in Avon
Park Lakes subdivision
Monday night sparked a dis-
cussion about a much-trou-
bled residence in Placid
Lakes.
'City council members
departed from previous
approvals, agreeing to
waive $1,225 in capacity


fees for the new residence,
but telling representative
Jane Breylinger that the
Habitat organization would
have to pick up a remaining
$575 in tap and connection
fees.
Although the North Todd
Street residence is outside
the city limits, it still is on
the Avon Park municipal
water and sewer system.
Mayor Sharon Schuler, in
voting for the measure,
pointed to state-mandated
budget restraints that have
affected the city already this
year, as well as a pending

Tuesday's winning Mega-Money


ticket sold at Sebring store


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Highlands
County has a new million-
aire. Officials at the Florida
Lottery revealed a winning
Mega-Money ticket was
sold at Terry's Little Market
on Kenilworth Boulevard in
Sebring. The lucky ticket
matched all four numbers
plus the Mega-Ball -
Smeaning it is worth $1.8
million.
Terry Little, who owns
the small convenience mart
and operates it with his
wife, said he knew the win-
ner, but declined to reveal
his identity other than to say
he is a regular at the store.
"He's a local guy, but he
hasn't arranged what he
needs to do yet and he's still
working that out. I can tell
Syou that he's pretty excited
about it," Little said.
When asked if word that
they had sold the winning
Mega-Money ticket had
spurred additional sales,
Little said his outlet already
is one of the top lottery
sales locations in Highlands
County.
"It has created a lot of
excitement; a lot of people
are talking about it," he
said.

Terry's Little Market (a.k.a J&S Food Store) recently sold
a winning Mega-Ball lottery ticket worth $1.8 million in
Sebring. Pictured here,-owner Terry Little and store clerk
Brenda Gibson talk about the store's lucky lottery streak.


Additionally, this is not
the first time they've had a
winning ticket. In March,
the store sold a $100,000
grand prize ticket on a $5
scratch-off and last April it
was the location for a win-
ning Fantasy Five ticket.
That one had a sad ending.
"That was a $169,000
winner but it went
unclaimed," he said.
Little said he's still look-
ing to sell a big one, a
Florida Lotto game winner.
Those start with a $3 mil-


lion jackpot.
He attributed the spate of
winners to a single reason,
"luck."
Lottery officials reported
the store will receive a
$4,000 reward for vending
the winning ticket. Little
said at this point he was
uncertain how he might
spend that money.

asked about what we're
going to do with it, but we

file suit


against


church
Authorities continue to
investigate July 13 fire
that almost destroyed
documents in question
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin shutt@newssun.com .......
AVON PARK About
two days after a fire scorched
the First United Methodist
Church pastor's office, cur-
rent and former members of
the church's board of trustees
filed a lawsuit asking the
court to force the Rev. Robert
E. Thorn to allow them
access to the church's finan-
cial records.
The July 13 fire at 200 S.
Lake Ave. was tentatively
attributed to an air condition-
er, which was unused for 13
years, Thorn told the News-
Suno6n:July; 14.
Det. Kevin Shireman, of
the State Fire Marshal's
Office, confirmed Thursday
that the fire is still being
investigated, with help from
the Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco and Firearms and the
FBI.
"I guess we're working
together on this," Shireman
said, explaining those agen-
cies are given an opportunity
to determine whether "hate
crimes" were a factor in
church-related incidents.
He said the investigators
weren't ready to release a
cause and he didn't know
whether they suspected arson.
Sebring attorney James F.
McCollum filed the lawsuit
July 16 on behalf of Wallace
"Wally" and Paula Randall,
Richard and Karen Nealis,
Richard and Lucille
Derkman, Jo and Ray
Crocker, Courtney and Betty
Houck, Louise W. Warner and
Steve and Nell Roberts.
McCollum said the suit
was filed after two denied
written requests to review the
church's financial records -
mandated by the Book of
Discipline of the United
Methodist Church and
Florida Statute's governing

millage rate
SEBRING The city
council formally approved
the lowest millage rate in 21

mandated 3 percent cut in

state Legislature due to the
new property tax laws. The
city's new budget does not
call for layoffs, but each
department in the General
Fund was told to cut expens-
es.
The city also set the dates
for the two public budget
hearings at Wednesday's .
meeting. The first public
meeting will take place on
Sept. 5 at 5:30 p.m., and the
second meeting will take
place Sept. 19, also at 5:30
p.m..
The city's 2007-2008
budget will take effect on

Southside will not donate to NAACP dinner


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK The Avon
Park Southside Community will
not be donating $1,300 to the
Avon Park chapter of the
National Association for the
Advancement of Colored
People for its annual awards
banquet at least for the time
being. The decision came at the
end of the Avon -Park
Community Redevelopment
Agency session just prior to
Monday night's city council
meeting.
However, the members left
the door open for the matter to
be brought back again, at next
month's meeting pending a
CRA rules change.
The city council, which sits
as the board for the airport,
Main Street and Southside CRA
districts, locked 2-2 in making
the ,approval. Both Sharon
Schuler and Doug Eason voted
against the measure, after being


advised by attorney Gerald
Buhr that under current CRA
statutes, such a donation was
not permitted from the tax
increment funding that provides
the money for the Community
Redevelopment Agency.
"I did a memorandum of law
regarding that but really
what it boils down to is the
CRA's TIF money cannot be
spent on anything that's not in
the plan. That's a requirement
passed last year," Buhr said.
Board members Joe Wright
and George Hall voted in favor
of the expenditure, while
Brenda Gray abstained. She
serves both as the council liai-
son to the Southside CRA and
currently is president of the
Avon Park NAACP, the organi-
zation that made the request.
During the discussion, Gray
-blamed Avon Park Project
Manager Maria Sutherland for
the mix-up, saying she had
advised the Southside CRA that


the donation could be made.
Southside CRA Board chair
Shirley Johnson blasted
Sutherland from the podium
"We would have never voted
on this had we not been misled.
This came up in two meetings
and Maria specifically said we
could do this. This was not the
board's fault; we weren't
wrong. 'We might have been
misled but we were not wrong,"
she said.
Sutherland repeatedly took
the blame for the misunder-
standing, indicating she had not
been aware that such a donation
was not permitted under the
current statutes.
"I know that in the past, both
the Southside and Main Street
CRAs have been able to benefit
by donating to not-for-profit
organizations, but that was prior
to the knowledge that we could-
n't do it," she said. "In hind-
sight, I think what I should have
done was to propose that we


change the plan and then work
the budget off the plan. It's my
fault I didn't have the informa-
tion for you that evening."
Sutherland said part of the
problem stemmed from the
fact that other such events
have been free and open to the
public, while the September
NAACP banquet is a paid din-
ner.
"The overall comments I got
from the Florida
Redevelopment Agency was
that feeding people does not
reduce slum and blight when
it's at a meeting where you pay
to get in.
"They said we'd be better off
contributing to a scholarship
fund on behalf of an organiza-
tion," Sutherland said.
Jackson said the idea for the
Southside CRA's donation to
the NAACP was to honor, a
number of residents that had
tried to make the neighborhood


better.
"This is supporting the peo-
ple who live on the south side
that have been working up and
down the streets diligently try-
ing to correct the blighted area.
There are people out there that
are serving on the Southside
CRA Advisory Board that are
walking those streets, sitting on
those street covers and clean-
ing up those streets and all the
NAACP wants to do is to-rec-
ognize those people," Jackson
said.
SGray lashed out at her fellow
CRA board members saying
that it was her opinion that
research was done to try and
find ways to prevent the
Southside CRA from being able
to contribute to the event.
"Since the Southside CRA
wants to do this, let's research
it, let's find a way not to do this
and the Main Street CRA has
been doing it forever and a
day," Gray said.


Sutherland believed it was
not the case that the board had
been singled out in the decision.
"That's your opinion and I
think differently. We are all
entitled to our opinions," Gray
replied. "We have a group of
volunteers who are trying to get
something positive going for
the south side and every time
the Southside CRA gets some-
thing going on, our hands are
cut."
Councilman Joe Wright said
the CRAs had been "neglecting
the fine points" for quite some
time and that having the city
council sit as the CRA for all
three advisory boards was a
move to correct some of the
problems that had plagued'the
organizations in the past.
"We do need to address these
technical points in case there is
a challenge. That's why we
need to snug up the procedural
aspects," he said. '

"That home was built over eight years

But it was in January of this year the

Cathy Cardenas and family from their

Cardenas youngsters and some reported
threats to their lives.
Neighbors Scott and Terry Iaisey said
their house had been shot at and had
obtained a letter of trespass against
Cardenas and her children. At the time,
the Highlands County Sheriff's Office
had 44 separate records filed in connec-'
tion with the Launch Road residence.
Last month, sheriff's officials said
Cardenas was arrested and charged with
multiple counts of petit theft, contribut-
ing to the delinquency of a minor and
driving while license suspended or
revoked.
Breylinger said the Cardenas family is
preparing to move out of the Launch
Road home and probably will relocate by
the end of August. They will no longer be
in the Habitat program and are moving to
a private residence in another communi-
ty.
"The plan was not to put them into
another Habitat home. We don't do a

Polk County as a possible

The trial date was initially
delayed after an appeal'.fiom
the state regarding a ruling
from Judge Susan Roberts,
who was formerly assigned to
the case. Roberts disallowed


Habitat house twice for one family," she
said. "But the board of directors did
decide that we assist them in getting into
another situation because we were wor-
ried about the children."
Breylinger said since the problems
arose, Habitat has hired an individual to
oversee the screening process along with
the volunteers. There also is a more thor-
ough investigation into the applicants
and the size of each of the families.
"And you'll find that out of 104
homes, you're going to have somewhere

income situations and that kind of thing,"
she said. "We stay with the families
throughout the process to see if we can

Florida opens giant warehouse

to stockpile disaster supplies


Associated Press
ORLANDO. The state on
Thursday opened a 200,000,
square-foot warehouse and
joint command center for dis-
aster-response, which will
hold millions *worth of stock-
piled commodities.
The warehouse, located in
an industrial park not far from
the Orange County jail, is a
former pharmaceutical manu-
facturing facility that will
cost $1.5 million a year to
lease.
Its contents, worth an esti-
mated $8.5 million, include:
1.5 million gallons of.
water
65,000 nonperishable
meals
45,000 tarps
8 miles of generator
cable
6,000 special needs cots
and bed kits
"The most important thing
we can do is get a plan, be
prepared and make sure that
Florida is ready as she has
been in the past," Gov.
Charlie Crist said.


Officials warned residents
they would still have to stpck-
pile their own supplies. The
contents of the warehouse
would only be enough for one
day in a Category 3 hurricane,
officials said.
The facility also serves as a
command and operations cen-
ter. It has a helicopter landing
area and an 820-square-foot,
climate-controlled vault a
carry-over from the pharma-
ceutical operation.
Chuck Hagen, the state's
emergency logistics chief,
said expensive communica-
tion gear would go in the
vault.
The warehouse, located
centrally in the state, promis-
es better speed and efficiency.
Previously, Hagen said,
Florida relied on vendor con-
tracts to get supplies like ice
and water ahead of a storm.
"We would start the pro-
curement process three days
before landfall. In this case
we'll start loading trucks
three days before landfall," he
said.

At the bottom of almost all e-mail sent from coun-
ty and municipal accounts is a warning similar to the
following:
"Legal Notice Regarding e-mail Senate Bill 80,
effective July 1, 2006 Under Florida Law, e-mail
addresses are public records. If you do not want your
e-mail address released in response to a public-
records request, do not send electronic e-mail to this
entity. Instead, contact this office by phone or in writ-
ing."
Florida has a liberal open records law that makes
most electronically- or manually-generated notes,
paperwork, transactions and records available for
public viewing including salaries and personnel
files.
It was in this spirit of Government in the Sunshine
that we published several hundred individuals'
names, positions and salaries Sunday, from Highlands
County Board of County Commissioners' 400-plus
employees to the Supervisor of Elections' five full-
timers.
Our goal was not to pass judgment on whether the
current salaries are too low, adequate or too high for
the county's tax base, quality of life and services ren-
dered. Nor, were we trying to determine whether the
county has too many positions or not enough.
We realize that there are a lot of questions, and
answers, surrounding the cost of government.
County staff and commissioners, on one hand,
could easily explain the salaries' necessity in attract-
ing and retaining qualified, desirable applicants.
Highlands' tax payers might argue less is more, that
they're paying too much in overhead than for actual
services.
Maybe you, the taxpaying, lifelong resident or
recently-transplanted citizen, disagree.
Maybe Highlands' taxpayers believe the county
efficiently expends their money. Maybe you believe
increasgdsalaries, will produce increased levels .of
.- strict LC.6nive.rsely',-rrmaybe' there- are personnel --
from top administration to grass cutters who advo-
cate eliminating superfluous positions or functions
rendered redundant due to technological advance-
ments.
That's a lot of maybes.
If you have questions, compliments or concerns
about your county government, especially during the
budget cycle, which concludes about 5:30 p.m. Sept.
18, contact Gloria Rybinski at 402-6836, 600 S.,
Commerce Ave., Sebring.
Also in that builditig are Supervisor of Elections
Joe Campbell (402-6655), Property Appraiser C.
Raymond McIntyre III (402-6659), Tax Collector
Charles L. Bryan (402-6685) and Clerk of the Courts
L.E. "Luke" Brooker (402-6565).
Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton's office is
at 434 Fernleaf Ave., Sebring. Her phone number is
402-7200.

a personal invitation to get your two cents in. The News-
Sun has a long history of encouraging public discussion

Salary disclosure is
invasion of privacy
Editor:
I was surprised to see that
you published the salaries of
every employee of Highlands
County government in the
July 22 edition of your news-
paper. While it may be fairly
argued that it is in the pub-
lic's interest to know the
salaries of its elected
Constitutional officers and
administrators, that argument
pales in comparison to the
invasion of privacy suffered
by the rank and file employ-
ees in the revelation of their
individual salaries.
If you felt it necessary to
quantify these salaries for
budget purposes surely you
could have stated the number
of employees by job title
with range of salaries rather
than divulging personal pay
information.
I'm sure you have the
ability to publish the salaries
of your newspaper employees
as well, but I doubt you
would do so. Probably
because you would be con-
cerned that it might generate
feelings of embarrassment,
resentment or jealousy
among your employees and
undermine morale. It's a


shame you don't extend such
privacy consideration to
Highlands County govern-
ment employees.
I have practiced law
throughout Central Florida
and it is has been my pleas-
ure to deal with staff of the
Clerk of Courts here. They
are always efficient, pleasant
and courteous in my contact
with them.
Similiarly, it has been my
privilege to work with the
detectives, road deputies,
bailiffs and detention
deputies of the Highlands'
County Sheriff's Office.
Despite the fact that my posi-
tion as a criminal defense
lawyer frequently places me
in an adversarial role I have
found them to be consistently
professional in the execution
of their duties. They have
earned my respect and admi-
ration over the years.
These are people who
doubtlessly' could earn more
money in the private sector
yet choose to serve the com-
munity at great personal risk
through a sense of duty and
honor. I believe you have
done them a grave disservice
in publishing this personal
information.
Robert H. Gray
Bartow


Information should be
left to elected officials
Editor:
This is a comment related
to the county salaries pub-
lished in Sunday's paper. I
think this.was a bad choice to
publish all of the salaries.
Many employees want
confidentiality of their wages
from their co-workers, fami-
ly, and friends. I am not a
county employee, but would
feel violated if my personal
information was published
unless I was an elected offi-
cial.
I will be looking for the
News-Sun to publish all of
their employees names, titles,
and wages in the paper this
week starting with the pub-
lisher.

It's not 'raining

men,' but it's OK
The complaint I encounter
each day is the absence of
available single men within
our communities, and our
churches and the need for a
loving and fulfilling relation-
ship.
Daunting statistics shows
that there are 72 single men
for every 100 single women
in the 45- to 64-year-old age
group. As the single woman
ages the prospect diminishes
- there are 31 single men
for every 100 women.
Women in their 20's seemed
to fare better as the ratio of
single men is 119 for every
single woman, according to
the www.uscensus.gov.
. When asked what they
want in a man, many women
usually responded to wanting
a man who is financially
secure, tall and handsome, is
funny and can make her
laugh, with great teeth,
romantic, faithful, loving and
generous.
What is often neglected is
their desire to seek a man
who loves the Lord and is
dedicated to loving her as
Christ loves the Church.
I've encountered women
whose sexual desires are so
dominant that they settle for
any "Joe Smooth" that comes
along, no questions asked.
"Joe Smooth" walks and
talks smooth and drives the
latest car. After the passion
has subsided, the issues are
raised.
Single women, you don't
need to settle for crumbs. If
you decide to date, get to
know the individual, become
friends, introduce him to
your pastor, play it safe, dou-
ble date. Your friends will
see what you;-with the stars
in your eyes, don't.
Find out about his family
... does he have children?
How many? How abobt child
support? Is there more than
one mother? Each child is
entitled to 17 percent of his

LETTERS
Continued from 8A
many wonderful people and
organizations for making our
50th Anniversary Celebration
a huge success on July 13.
Arc's Self- Advocacy
Committee chose the theme
"Back to the '50s" for the
celebration. The event could
not have been held without
SFCC generously donating
the use of their gymnasium
and the assistance of the
maintenance department,
lead by Susan Volpitta.
Where to start? Food first:
Thanks to the Highlands
County Cattlemen's
Association for bringing
their grill and cooking the
hamburgers and hot dogs; the
Kiwanis Club of Sebring
members who donated their
time to serve our nearly 300
guests; and Rick Rafferty at
Duffer's who donated the
potato salad and cole slaw.
What's a celebration with-
out entertainment? The day
started off with a parade of
vintage cars by the American
Antique Car Association, a
meet and greet by Willie
Nelson (Ted Key with
Famous Faces), and 1950's
music and games by Art
Bostick. After the luncheon
and awards everyone was
treated to Highlands Little
Theatre Greasers performing
songs from their production
of "Grease." Finishing up the
entertainment was Elvis in
Concert (Carl Bryant).
A special thank you to
Doug Hammond, who lent
vintage furnishings for deco-
rations. If there is anyone we
neglected to list, please
accept our apology.
We are so appreciative to
everyone in the community
for their past assistance and
support of Arc. It is because
of you we have been able to
provide services to individu-
als with developmental and
other disabilities in the area
for 50 years.
Rlonda Beckman

The writer is executive director of
Arc. The letter was also signed by
Linda A. Wells, Arc director of
development.

Card of thanks
Editor:
This note is to an attempt
to express our appreciation
for the out pouring of condo-
lences and support shown
our family during our grief at
the loss of our beloved Ted
Walker.
We are humbled by the
unwavering stamina of those
who stood in the sweltering
heat as Ted's life was hon-
ored with a military ceremo-
ny in addition to the standard
burial services. Thank you
for your presence, your flow-
ers, cards, donations and
gifts.
Additional thanks go to
VFW Post 4300 as they
stood at attention in uniform
despite the heat to perform a
perfect ritual.

I would be unable to share

gift to control urges in your

Be careful not to get

For example, he enjoys the

you findjoy participating in

Just one of


those days

Not too long ago, I was
scheduled to fly to Ohio for
my mom's birthday. I got to
experience everything from
the "what else can go wrong"
side of life.
It all started going down-
hill Sunday with my ankle
being bitten by some
unknown insects. By the
time Monday morning rolled
around, my ankle was
swollen to the size of a vol-
leyball. I took Benedryl and
went to bed Monday night.
The two alarms I set for
Tuesday morning didn't
wake me out of my deep
sleep and I woke up two
hours later than I had
planned to leave for the air-
port. I quickly threw my
clothes into the suitcase,
jumped into the rental car,
and headed off for Tampa
airport.
Eventually, I remembered
that I was actually flying out
of Orlando. Oopsie! Being
in a rental car, I had no map
to find the quickest route
back. I had my cell phone, so
I called the airlines and
asked how to let them know
I would have to take a differ-
ent flight; I was definitely
going to miss the one I was
scheduled to'take. I was told
it would cost a change fee
and the price difference
between flights. Or, I could
go to the airport and become
a standby passenger, and get
there when I got there. I
chose to go standby instead
of paying the extra fees.
I missed my exit for the
airport and proceeded blithe-
ly on my way up the inter-
state. I finally got to the air-
port and started looking for
where to drop off my car. I
didn't find it readily, so I
decidedto get in line for my
ticket first. After parking in
the garage, an adventure of
its own, I went to the ticket
counter to get my standby
ticket. I was able to get onto
a flight to Atlanta (the origi-
nal ticket was a non-stop
flight to Ohio), and then pray
I could continue to Ohio
from there, with no guaran-
tee.
I went back to the garage
to return the rental car. The
ticket gal told me the compa-
ny was off-site, to take two
rights and a left, which I did.
I ended up on' a toll road '
with insufficient change. I
stopped at a store to get
change and ask directions. I
was told how to get to the
airport, not how to find the
rental place. I finally called
the Sebring rental office and
got directions. What did we
do before cell phones?
After getting gas in the
rental car and asking, again,
for directions, I found the
rental place. First, I parked
in the shuttle lane, then I
pulled into the return lanes. I
went inside and a customer
service representative told
me to wait "right there one
minute." After 10 minutes, I
stepped into another line.
Eventually, the man told me
their computer system wasn't
working and I'd have to
clear it up with the Sebring
office upon my return. I
stepped outside to get the
shuttle and the driver pointed
to the next shuttle; his shut-
tle was full.
When I got to the airport,

Under Way ... But I'hese TCowery ghosts Bring


gasys Of DeCigyht InsteadOf'Tright


By PATRICIA C. POND
News Sun correspondent
NAPLES
Here is a ghost appearing in a
forest not far from Highlands
County, and thousands of people
are flocking to see it.
For the past week, visitors from all over
the country have been traveling to a swamp
in Collier County to see what looks like
seven small white ghosts floating across the
trunk of a giant' cypress tree.
The little ghosts are actually blossoms on
a rare ghost orchid hovering 45 feet above
the ground in a 400-foot-high bald cypress
tree. The host tree is about 150 feet from the
boardwalk in the Corkscrew Swamp
Sanctuary between Naples and Immokalee.
Ghost orchids are endangered and this
plant is even more impressive because it had
nine flowers when first spotted, three times
the usual number. It was discovered on July
7 by two bird-watchers searching the forest
canopy for owls. Since it only blooms for
about two weeks, seven flowers remained
this week, but they are spectacular.
It is the first ghost orchid discovered near
the sanctuary boardwalk in 12 years, accord-
ing to park manager Ed Carlson. Carlson sus-
pects that the orchid has been in the tree for
decades because of its large root mass, but
since they bloom in June and July, it has
probably been obscured by the leaves on the
cypress trees.
Many orchid lovers, growers and breeders
have searched hostile swamp environments
for a lifetime and never seen a ghost orchid
in bloom. Very few are ever seen in the wild.
"The Orchid Thief," a best-selling nonfic-
tion book by Susan Orlean, recounts such
efforts in what the author describes as a
"story of beauty and obsession." Her book
chronicals tales of theft, greed, jealousy,
madness and passions of fanatics "so
enthralled by orchids they pursue them like
lovers."
Thanks to Orlean's book, millions of peo-
ple are now familiar with the plant. And
thanks to The Associated Press, who picked
up the story from the Fort Myers News
Press, the discovery was published by media
all across the country, setting off the current
botanical pilgrimage.
Professor Walter Judd, from the
University of Florida's Department of
Botany, checked in last Friday at the sanctu-
ary's admissions desk with a group of stu-
dents enrolled in his Tropical Botany course.
Class members visit botanical sites through-
out south Florida to examine tropical speci-
mens.
"We have been coming here with our stu-
dents for 22 years, and this is the first time
we have ever seen a ghost orchid in bloom,"
Judd enthused. "This is our last field trip,
what a finish!"
From the boardwalk, the plant is barely
visible to the naked eye. At the viewing site,
sanctuary volunteers have set up two large
spotting scopes focused on the'blossoms.
They assist visitors in spotting the plant

through the thick stand of ancient bald
cypress trees.
When not in bloom, the network of roots
blends perfectly into the ridges and colors of
the tree's bark. Since it is as high in the air
as the top of a six-story building, no casual
visitor would notice it through the thick for-
est.

National Audubon Society manages the sanc-
tuary, to maintain and protect the native
plants and animals. A 2.25-mile boardwalk
takes visitors through the sanctuary, and vol-
unteer naturalists are usually on the board-
walk to answer questions.
Two such uniformed volunteers were on
hand during the time of the News-Sun visit
and were helping amateur and professional


If You Want To Go
Call first if you plan to make a spe-
cial trip to see the ghost orchid,
because it is nearing the end of its
blooming period. Call (239) 348-9151.
Summer hours from April through
Sept. 30 are 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. No
entrance after 6:30 p.m. because all
visitors must be off the boardwalk
before closing time.

Collier County between Immokalee
and Naples. The best route from
Highlands County is from U.S. 27

telephoto lenses a big as Civil War canons.
In addition, a group of YMCA campers, sev-
eral families and a local television crew were
eagerly waiting their turn. Everyone was
cooperative, patient and surprisingly soft-
-voiced.
The sanctuary's staff and volunteers
appear to be taking it all in stride 'ffiTMnr
delighted at the unexpected attention the
facility is receiving.
"Our normal summer attendance is about
50 to 70 people a day," according to Mary
Ann Summeralls, who works at the sanctu-
ary's admissions desk. "Now we have been
getting over 100 people on weekdays and
more than 300 a day on the weekends."

lucky kids from the Boys and

tened to author Cynthia
Dwyer read her new book,
"Four-Eyed Philip'," just to
them at the Children's
Library in Sebring this week.
Before reading, Dwyer
engaged the children. in a
lively discussion about bully-
ing, the topic of her book.
She asked how many of the
children had been bullied,
and a lot of hands went up.
Then she asked: "How
many of you have bullied


other kids?"
A few brave little boys
raised their hands. She talked
to them about how it made
them feel and asked them to


imagine how the other kid
felt. The exchange was gen-
tle, frank and honest.

nized for her many years as a

'Sicko' a worthwhile film, but it could have been better


Reviewing a Michael
Moore movie is inherently
tricky. This, after all, is sup-
posed to be a movie review,
and the point of this particu-
lar column is to review
Moore's movie not his
political views.
But in order to effectively
review a documentary, you
have to tackle the subject
matter within the movie and
evaluate how strong the argu-
ments are. After all, if the
evidence in the film is flim-
sy, then the overall point of
the movie really doesn't mat-
ter. And for this reason,
Moore's movies have never
really appealed to me, even
though I usually agree with
the overall premises of his
films.
The movie opens with sto-
ries from people without
health insurance who suf-
fered injuries they couldn't
afford to fix. But "Sicko"
isn't about people who don't
have health insurance.
Instead, the film focuses on
people who were "lucky"
enough to have health insur-
ance until they were denied
treatment for various reasons.
Some of the stories in the
film are devastating. Moore
talked to a wide range of
people (including a couple of
remorseful people that used
to work in the health care
industry) and uncovered a
world of lies, deceit, and hor-
rible treatment.

Moore then examines the
idea of government-run uni-
versal health care by travel-
ing to Canada, England and
France. The segments in
Europe begin to drag as the
movie plods along, mostly
because Moore's argument
(that foreign health care sys-
tems are better) is already
well-established by the time
,he arrives overseas. We get

the point fairly quickly, and
the audience is either going
to be convinced he's right or
convinced that he's wrong
before these scenes even
begin.
But his now-infamous trip
to Cuba, in Which he takes a
group of 9/11 workers to get
treatn nt that they couldn't
afford in America, is interest-
ing and surprisingly, not all
that controversial. But what's
interesting about the scene is
not so much the high quality
of the Cuban medical care
itself (which is portrayed in
an all-too-exaggerated,
rehearsed fashion), but the
overwhelmingly positive
reactions by the Cuban citi-
zens towards the American


heroes.
Moore is actually making a
broader point here, that the
media's portrayals of Cuba as
everything evil in the world
aren't actually true when you
look at the country's citizens
up close..But that's not what
this movie is about, after all.
And it's telling that the Cuba
trip is was the strongest part
of the movie.
Moore is at his best when
he show how the right-lean-
ing media in this country
influence public opinion, and
he does this to great effect
throughout "Sicko." But he
doesn't do it enough. Moore
isn't as good when talking
about the specifics of an
issue, and that's why "Sicko"
isn't as effective as it could
have been.
So how do you evaluate a
movie like this? Well, it's not
easy. "Sicko" is a good
movie, it's an effective
movie, and it's surprisingly
funny movie (when it isn't
making you cry, that is). The
film is too long and it defi-
nitely drags in the middle,
but it's a very watchable
movie nonetheless.

Knoxville. Ever since, he has

The excitement
hung heavy in the
air as the start 6f
Friday Night'Lights
was about to begin.
The big kids'were
about to take the I
.field at The Swamp
in Gainesville and
enter into battle on Verl
the gridiron. Spir
I took my eye off
the participants of Vita
this high school Vernon
combine to see my
young friend clinging to the
gate and dreaming of the day
when he will be the one hus-
tling to get noticed to have a
chance to get a scholarship to
play Division I football.
They call my youthful
warrior "Little B." I loved
the look on his face. I felt
like I could read his mind as
he watched the teenagers pre-
pare to walk onto the field at
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. I
could sense the doubt and
dismay in his expression as
he wondered if he would
ever be big enough or strong
enough to get a chance to
prove himself before some
college coaches.
I love the fact that even if
"Little B" was not big
enough to play in the game,
he still walked onto the field,
and felt the grass and
dreamed of the day when he
would play.
Have you ever felt like
"Little B?" Have you ever
had to wait on the sideline
and watch as someone else


got the promotion'
you had been dream-
ing of? Have you
been forced to stand
in the shadows and
watch the talented
people get all the
attention? Have you
been wondering if
In's y you will ever be
tual strong enough to
play in the big
min game? Today, you
,rrell may be feeling of
the grass and look-
ing at all the obstacles stand-
ing between you and your
goals and feeling defeated.
The rejection you feel
today is like the sand in the
oyster; the irritant that ulti-
mately produces the pearl.
The difficulties and problems
we face in life are a grind-
stone; whether they grind
you down or polish you up
depends on what you're
made of.
The great challenge of life
as well as great opportunities
are determined not so much
by what life brings to you as
by the attitude you bring to
life.
The only difference
between stumbling blocks
and stepping- stones is the
way you use them. Choose to
get into the game and make
the most of this day.

Baptist Church
SEBRING Pastor Ken
Lambert is starting a new series
from the book of Proverbs. This
book has 31 chapters making it an
easy read for one month, reading
one chapter a day. Lambert chal-
lenges all to read one chapter of
Proverbs a day.
It is also called the Book of
Wisdom. The book is a practical
help book for all the many things
that come up in life today. When
you do not know what to do in any
given situation, or people are freely
giving you contrary and varied
words of advise, you can go to the
Word of God and read what God
says. The book covers many topics
of interest for all ages.
What is a "Proverb?" The dic-
tionary says: 'A proverb is a con-
cise statement of wisdom worded in
a clever way to make it easy to
remember. Most proverbs consist of
two clauses (a comma often sepa-
rates them), presenting either simi-
larities or contrasts.'
An example of a Proverb written
as a single statement expressing a
single fact is Proverbs 16:7. "When
a man's-ways please the Lord, he
maketh even his enemies to be at
peace with him."
SAn example of a Proverb with
two clauses written as a comparison
is Proverbs 25:25. "As cold waters
to a thirsty soul, so is good news
from a far country."

RELIGION
Continued from 3B
An example of a Proverb
with two clauses, describing
things that are opposite is
Proverbs 10:7, "The memory
of the just is blessed: but the
name of the wicked shall
rot."
An example of a Proverb
with two clauses sharing one
thought but repeated in a
slightly different way is
Proverbs 24:17 "Rejoice not
when thine enemy falleth,
and let not thine heart be
glad when he stumbleth:"
If you study 'the examples
above it makes the Book of
Proverbs not only an interest-
ing study in grammar, but a
fabulous handbook for life.

hall. have dinner and fellow-
ship. There is a lot of laugh-
ter. stories, caring and great
food (which usually, all help
in preparing). This has pro-
gressed into an Outreach

out to eat, they donate that
money to a needed cause.
This group has already donat-
ed food to the poor, Manna
Ministries and others.
Same Boat offers food, fun
and fellowship to any single
parishioner and their friends
and neighbors. Questions?

Devasher joins staff at newly renamed

Avon Park Seventh-day Adventist church


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Pastor
Kameron DeVasher has
recently joined the staff of
Avon Park Seventh-day
Adventist Church formerly
known as Walker Memorial
Church. He is one of the asso-
ciate pastors.
DeVasher was born and
raised in Madison, .Tenn.
After graduating from
Madison Academy in 1996,
he completed his bachelor's
degree in religious education
in 2000 from Southern

Collegedale, Tenn., which

an airport security person
directed the line of people I
was standing in to move to
another line, until he got to
me, where he cut off the new
line. He told me to stay in
the line I was in, which then
stopped moving, while the
other folks of the former line
moved on through.
Y I got to the gate for Atlanta
as the last passenger. They
closed the door behind me.
We were met at the Atlanta
gate by a representative who
told me where my next gate
was. It was a shared gate and
my airlines didn't get there
until 30 minutes before
boarding. At that time, the
gate was changed because
another pilot had brought his
plane into the wrong gate,
causing a ripple-effect of
gate changes. Our pilot and
groundcrew were discussing
whether the plane would
need to be refueled; if so, the
paperwork would be a
"screwed-up nightmare" from
all the changes.
Fortunately for me, I

year he joined the staff at
Gem State Adventist
Academy as church pastor
and campus Chaplain/Bible
teacher.
DeVasher's main theologi-
cal interests are the identity
and mission of the Seventh-
day Adventist church. He
believes the Lord has called
him to use the gifts and
opportunities he provides to
finish the work and hasten the
soon coming of Jesus.
DeVasher is interested in
nature, especially snowboard-
ing, fishing and photography.


I wasn't me. Yup, they had
my middle name as my first
name and she wouldn't
accept my identification
because it wasn't the right
name. Finally, she told me to
go sit and wait.
There had been a storm
and several connecting
planes had been delayed. We
sat in the waiting area over
two hours past our take-off
time, to get all the passengers
on board. One impatient pas-
senger pushed the airway
door open, setting off a hor-
rendously loud alarm. The
airlines personnel couldn't
silence the alarm, aid many
people moved to another part
of the terminal to get away
from the deafening noise. I
stayed where I had been
directed to so I wouldn't lose
my standby status.
After last call, which I did-
n't hear because of the alarm,
the groundcrew guy realized
I was still sitting there and
told the desk clerk. Once
again, I was the last passen-
ger on the plane and the door
shut behind me. At least, I
was finally going to get to

Because it was so late, I
had told my folks to go
ahead and go to bed; I would
get a taxi home and see them
in the morning. You guessed
it. The taxes stopped running
at midnight. The direct
phones in the airport said to
leave a message and they
would call back, but had no
phone number for them to
call. One on-site company
wanted $30 because it was
after midnight, even though
it was only a five-minute
drive from the airport to my
folks' apartment. In spite of
being in their jammies, the
folks and the dog were glad
to see me. Needless to say,
we didn't stay up and talk
much.

Religion Snapshots


Church changes its name
AVON PARK Walker Memorial Seventh-
day Adventist Church has officially changed
its name.
Commencing July 1, the new name is Avon
Park Seventh-day Adventist Church. It is a
900-member church on Avon Park Boulevard.
The church was established in 1940 in the
Walker Memorial Hospital and later met in
what was Casino on the Lake. The old building
was bought for $10,000, and the members
began worshipping in it.
The current building began in 1970 and was
dedicated Nov. 27, 1982. The original name,
Walker Memorial, was given in honor of the
founder of the hospital.

them," Chenique said.
She added that many young
children are no longer read to
at home: "Sometimes the
library programs are the only
exposure they get to books."
The Children's Library is
far more than a collection of
books, although there are
plenty of these, with wonder-
ful illustrations. The Sebring
branch has computers, some
with internet access, and elec-
tronic games.

"These are educational
games," Chenique was quick
to point out. "And for the
younger children, we have
software on the computers
that is not on line."
Chenique said that the
library staff is always trying
to do things for the communi-

"We have events for all
ages, and will.partner with
other organizations and

these activities."

...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.

Dixie Junior Boys State Tournament


Second chance leads Sebring to second in state


By DANIEL HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING In a cruel bit
of irony Wednesday, the 'fill-
in' Sebring All-Star team saw
their Cinderella story end at
the hands of the team that
began it in the first place.
It was the Okeechobee All-
Stars that had taken the
District 8 championship by
besting the boys of Sebring,
leaving them on the outside
looking in on the state tourna-
ment.
That was until two other
district winners dropped out,
giving the Blue-and-White a
new lease on life, which it
was making the most of dur-
ing an improbably tournament
run.
The run saw Sebring drop
West Volusia twice, gain a
measure of revenge against
the Okee's, trouncing them in
a mercy-rule game, and han-
dling Spring Hill, to leave
them undefeated and just one
win away from stamping a
ticket to Muscle Shoals, AL,
as the Florida representative
in the Dixie Junior Boys
World Series.
But July 25 proved to be a
black Wednesday for the boys
in blue, as Okeechobee
nipped them in two one-run
games, 4-3 and 10-9, to earn
the trip to northern Alabama.
"I think the nerves got to


them a little bit, realizing
what a win would mean,"
head coach Shon Abeln said.
"For a lot of the kids, these
were the biggest games they'd
ever been in."
But they were in the games
throughout, going back to the
district tournament, Sebring
lost a total of four games, all
to Okeechobee, by a total of
just five runs.
And even in the deciding
game, when the chips seemed
down, there was no lack of
fight.
"We were down 4-0, came
back to tie it, went down 5-4,
then 9-4," Abeln said. "These
kids never gave up and I'm
very proud of what we were
able to do."
But in the end, it was a col-
lection of little mistakes that
cost them, mistakes by them
and others that didn't help.
"In the seventh inning,
Jonathan Knight got a hit and
went to third on a groundout,"
Abeln said. "On a grounder to
second, the throw came home
and .the catcher, who was
standing on the plate, tagged
Jonathan on the chin. Being
tagged on the chin, it's obvi-
ous at least his legs are across
the plate, but he was called
out. A couple tournament offi-
cials came by later and apolo-
gized, but it was a judgment


News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE
All for one. The Sebring 13-year-old All-Stars, seen here at the District 8 tournament where they were runner-up, banded
together to make an improbable run at the state tournament, nearly pulling out a state championship.


call and there's nothing you
can do about it.
"But I can count on both
hands a lot of little key
moments that didn't go our
way," he continued. "We were
making mistakes we hadn't
been making before, we


weren't getting the clutch hits
like we had been and we ran
out of pitching. And
Okeechobee is a good team
and played good baseball."
And so unlike the "Little
Engine That Could" the
Sebring All-Star Junior Boys


couldn't quite get up the hill,
but there was plenty to be
proud of.
"We were lucky just to get
in this, a district runner-up
and we became the team to
beat," Abeln said. "It wasn't
in the cards for us, but we


made the most of it and
although there were some
tears, these boys have nothing
to be ashamed of."
The district runner-up that
became the state runner-up.-
definitely makes for a great
story to be proud of.


Dixie Boys State Tournament


South Port no welcome harbor for Sebring

daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING The Sebring
14-year-old All-Stars, unfor-
tunately, met a similar fate as
their 13-year-old counter-
parts, in falling just short of
the Florida Dixie Boys State
Tournament championship
Thursday with an 8-4 loss to
South Port.
Having lost to South Port in


the second round, after open- swered rains to all but elimi-


ing, the tournament
with a win over
Quincy, Sebring came
back through the con-
solation bracket with
wins over Messer Park
of Tallahassee and
West Volusia to set up
the rematch.
But South Port broke
out early with seven


nate Sebring's hopes.
South Port Just like their
younger brethren,
however, the-,14-year-
old boys-in-blue never
Sebring gave up, tallying runs
4 in the latter innings in
an attempt to get back
into it.
But South Port's
unan- early barrage was too much to


overcome as the District 8
champions settled for taking
claim to being the second
best Dixie Boys team in the
state of Florida.
Full details of the game
were not available at press
time.
A more complete recap of
the tournament will be in the
Sunday, July 29 edition of the
News-Sun.

and Duane Elkhill adding RBI singles. Pough was on the mound for Avon Park, throwing all seven innings
and striking out 12 Marianna batters.The win followed a 13-0 drubbing of Citrus in the state semifinal

With "The Simpsons"
movie opening today, I found
this eerie little nugget of
information.
In an episode 'titled,
"Brother's Little Helper"
Bart shoots down a satellite
that Major League Baseball
was using to spy on people.
As a crowd of
Springfieldiens is up in arms,
a helicopter lands and out
jumps Mark McGwire, who
asks "Do you want to know
the terrifying truth, or do you
want to see me sock a few
dingers?"
To which the crowd
responds, "Dingers!
Dingers!"
In retrospect, pretty comi-
cal, huh?
Thing is, this episode aired
in October of 1999 well
before the joke of "the terri-
fying truth" would make as
much sense as it now does.


The league, along with the
general baseball public and
writers, was still abuzz with
the historic home run chase
of the year before.
Just think how well that
line of script would work
now?
Or picture it with Barry
Bonds instead of McGwire,
standing with a microphone
in PacBell park in front of
the San Francisco crowd.
"Do you want to know the
terrifying truth, or do you
want to see me sock a few
dingers?"
And of course the Giant
fans will reply, "Dingers!
Dingers!"
Or if McGwire had used
that line on Capital Hill at
the Senate hearings, and had
actually told the terrifying
truth, he might be heading to
Cooperstown this weekend
instead of continuing his dis-

Lessons Not Learned --

In the Simpsons episode
"Homer at the Bat," which
aired in February of 1992;
Yankee star Don Mattingly
is benched by Mr. Burns w b y
because of his "untrimmed W e have
sideburns."
The players recorded their
voice-overs at various points
during the 1991 season, a
season during which the
Yankees, benched Mattingly I/i
for not getting his hair cut.
Mattingly, oddly, recorded
his voice over for the show Ta e
before the real-life benching /
took place. ake Placid

And Another
Thing...

appearance from the public
eye as a silent recluse.
But that's OK.
As McGwire hides in his
gated community, and Bonds
swings away to the delight of
the San Franciscan masses -
I'm going to see "The
Simpsons."
