Has the


rain


helped?

By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
April's lack of showers
brought May flowers popping
up in an unusual place the
areas drying lake beds.
It wasn't until June that
Highlands County experi-
enced rainfall near the
monthly average.
"Water got so low you had
to go out in a boat to catch
anything," Kenneth Jackson
of SpringLake said after a
day of fishing at Lake
Istokpoga park. "I usually
have a half bucket of fish -
speck, catfish, bluegill -
now since the water has gone
down they don't bite as
much."
Jackson has fished at Lake
Istokpoga park for the last
five years, going about once a
week.
"Since it got'the drought,
it's the lowest I've seen," he
said. "But it's coming back
up, as long as it keeps raining
every day like this."
The recent meteorological
activity has affected more
than just our lakes, Kevin
Main, land manager for the
Archbold Biological Station
said.
"As far as vegetation, that
sort of thing, e\eruthing
seems to ha\e greened upI
quite a bit," he said. "Getting
the rain helpedus do some
fire management, but now it's
even a little too wet for that."
So far in 2007 the county
has seen 21 inches of rain.
"This may be a little short
of the average, but it's not
that unusually low," Main
said. "If it keeps going like it
is we will have about an aver-
age year."
* Southeast of the county,
Lake Okeechobee has suf-
fered, setting record low lev-
els. However, the fifth largest
lake in the state, Istokpoga, is
doing fine now. The lake is
even swelling to the point
that water is being released
for flobd'control.
"The lake is at 38.32 feet
according to the U.S. geolog-
ical surveys," Clell Ford, the

Champion


for Children


nominees

announced

26 people up for

prestigious award
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Kevin Roberts,
chief executive officer of the
Children's Services Foundation,
announced Friday that 26 individuals
have been nominated for the 2007
Judge Clifton M. Kelly Champion
for Children Award.
The annual award honors those
who work on behalf of children in
Highlands County.
This year's nominees are: Debbie
Barber, Alvin Conners, Lynn
Douglass, Paul Elliott, Ted Evans,
Walda Farmer, Dennis Griffin, Don
and Judy Griffing, Marvin Hayes,
Rick Heilig, Nancy and Patrick
High, Patty Jackson, Marge
Jernigan, Dan Johnson, Mike and Pat
Karl, Thomas Libby, Jenny Rowe,
Kelly Sanders, Phyllis Snyder, Joyce
Watters and William Tealy.
Sheriff Susan Benton and Avon
Park Youth Academy director Pete
Zeegers also were nominated, how-
ever, because they both serve on the
Children's Services Council, they
are ineligible for final selection.
The 26 nominees were chosen by a
screening committee from sugges-
tions submitted by the public.
A separate selection committee
will now choose the seven finalists
and from among them, the ultimate
winner.
A gala celebration of all the nomi-
nees and the announcement of the
winner will take place at the
Restoration Center on Sparta Road
in Sebring at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept.
27.
The award was named to honor
Clifton M. Kelly, who served as a
circuit court judge in Florida's Tenth
Judicial Circuit for 25 years. In addi-
tion to sitting on the bench, Kelly
designed a crime prevention curricu-
lum, The Consequences of Crime,
that was used in public schools.
Candidates for the Champion for
Children Award must reside in
Highlands County; demonstrate a
deep, caring desire to help children;
have taken action to address a prob-
lem facing children or youth; and
have provided five years of service
directly affecting the well-being of
children.
Finalists provide a more detailed
description of their service to the
selection committee.
When considering the nominees,
some of the things the committee
looks at are the number of children
helped, the strength and length of the
nominee's commitment, the amount
of personal volunteer time the nomi-
nee has given over regular work

How to break the bullying cycle


By PATRICIA C. POND
News Sun correspondent
It is important for all adults to take bullying
seriously and not just brush it off as something
everyone has to go through. There is a big differ-
ence between playful teasing that is friendly and
mutual and behavior that is cruel, hurtful and
focused on a weaker victim. When playful behav-
ior crosses the line into bullying, it needs to stop.
If your child shows signs of being bullied but
will not tell you directly, you will need to bring
up the subject in a supportive way. You can talk


about something that happened to you, or to a
friend or family member. You can use a book like
Cynthia Dwyer's "Four-Eyed Philip" to introduce
the topic of bullying.
Ask some questions such as: "Has this ever
happened to you?" or "What should kids do if
someone bullies them?"
Let kids know that if they are being bullied -
or if they see it happening to someone else it's
important to talk to someone about it, whether it's
you, or another adult such as a teacher, a coach or
a counselor.

A THREE-PART SERIES


Part Three

If your child tells you directly that he or she is
being teased or bullied, stop what you are doing
and say something like "I'm so glad you told me
this." Then sit down and talk about it.
Remove any guilt by saying that it is the bully

Proposed parking precipitates special meeting


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Parking
will be on the minds of Avon
Park City Council members
when they meet for a special
session Monday night. Mayor
,lSharon Schuler called for the
',ssion during a discussion of
Proposed changes in the city's
and Development
regulations at last week's
regular council session.
:i, Southside Community
Redevelopment Agency
Advisory Board Chair Shirley
Johnson addressed the issue at
the council meeting, showing
petitions that had been signed
in opposition to minimum
maintenance statutes that
would require that automo-
biles not be parked in yards.
but on a driveway or other


stabilized surface.
She maintained that a per-
sonal tour of the city showed
a myriad of addresses that
could not comply with the
statute as written due to a lack
of space.
"What do you want people
to do? Sell their houses? I
don't think anybody up there
is that heartless," she said.
Calling it an "unfunded
mandate," Johnson said there
were many residents who
could not comply with the
provision due to space and
other constraints.
Instead, Johnson asked that
existing homes be grandfa-
thered in with such legislation
aimed only at new construc-
tion.
"If you actually go to the
LDRs, the section that refers


'They're not informed on a lot of things;
all they got to do is pick up the phone
and ask someone.'

SHIRLEY JOHNSON
SCRA Board chair, on the city council


to parking, it says that section
refers to new construction and
homes that have been
increased by more than 50
percent," responded council-
man Joe Wright.
Resident Janie White
objected to the measure alto-
gether, asking "if people don't
want a driveway, why they
got to have one?"
When the measure first was
adopted, council members set
a six-month grace period
before any of the provisions


were to be enforced to give
residents a chance to find out
the provisions and begin com-
pliance.
The issue was a hot topic at
this month's Souithside CRA
Advisory board meeting earli-
er this month where it drew a
lot of discussion.
"The council has apparent-
ly decided that my grass is
their business, to put it nice-
ly," Johnson said. "They don't
want me to park my car on my
grass."

Advisory board member
Alice Paisley 'suggested
money for facade grants
might be used in an effort to
help people funds for such
parking areas.
"A lot of people can't
match the funds, but they'll
have to upgrade because of
the city ordinance," she said.
Johnson was both critical of
the ordinance and of council
members, who also sit on the
board for all three of the CRA
districts in Avon Park.
"They're not informed on a
lot of things; all they got to do
is pick up the phone and ask


someone. They're not
informed and they don't try to
be informed, seriously. Until
we get the right people in the
seat they're not going to want
to be informed," she said. "I
hope you got that on the
record."
Several times during the
advisory board meeting,
Johnson hinted she might
have an eye on a council seat
herself, saying, "I'm not a
councilwoman ... yet."
Monday night's special
meeting will commence at 6
p.m. at the city council cham-
bers.

Woman charged with fraud against sister


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING A woman
was in custody for forgery
and fraud Thursday, months
after she gave false informa-
tion to a deputy during a traf-
fic stop.
On April 6 the suspect,
Jacqueline Cobb, 34, of
Frostproof, was pulled over
while driving a car with an
equipment violation.
When asked for her driver
license, she allegedly provid-
ed officers with her sister's
name, Denise Cobbs Sykes,
and date of birth.
Checking the information
provided, to him, Officer
Michael Theodorou of the
Highlands County Sheriffs
Office discovered the identity
he was .provided with,.
although false, revealed
Cobb's sister did have a valid
driver license. .
Theodorou then wrote
Cobb, under the identity of
her sister, two tickets one
for unsafe equipment and an
additional ticket for not carry-
ing her driver license.
Before Theodorou was
done writing the pair of tick-
ets, Cobb was asked to pro-
vide her fingerprints on them
because there was no way to
ensure her identity.
Months passed, then in
June the real Denise Cobbs
Sykes received a letter from


the Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles stating her license
would be suspended if she did
not pay the fines on the two
tickets.
Sykes went to the HCSO to
report her sister for forging
the signatures on the tickets
and using her identity, and
after an examination by
HCSO Crime Scene detective


El4riMa Lettery
LOTTO

Jeffrey Fennel it was discov-
ered that the fingerprints did
belong to Cobb.
Cobb was charged with two
counts of forgery and two
counts of fraud, all, third
degree felonies, and one
count of fraud for giving a
false identification to a law
enforcement officer.
Bail was set at $4,500.

MISTAKE
Continued from 1A
In the Lorida case,
Chance's death was not the
first time Kaplan had not been
able to account for the tod-
4L:ar..r ,hereeaours._ Sheriff's
office reports indicated
Kaplan would fall asleep or
continue to play video games
when watching the children
and not know the whereabouts
of his sons. Once before, the
young boys were found inside
the low-slung Sunfire without
Kaplan knowing here they
were.
Many cases involved what
might be called community
pillars: dentists and nurses;
ministers and college profes-
sors; a concert violinist; a
member of a county social
services board; a NASA engi-
neer. And it is undisputed that
none or almost none -
intended to harm these chil-
dren.
Still other hyperthermia
cases across the nation
involve single parents unable
to find or afford day care.
Texas leads the nation with
at least 41 deaths, followed by
Florida with 37, California
with 31, North Carolina and
Arizona with 14 apiece, and
Tennessee with 13. There
were deaths recorded in 44
states most in the Sun Belt,
but many in places not known


for hot weather.
The correlation between the
rise in these deaths and the
1990s move to put children in
the back seat is striking.
"Up to that time, the aver-
age number of children dying
of hyperthermia in the United
States was about 11 a year,"
says Jan Null, an adjunct pro-
fessor of meteorology at San
Francisco State University
who has studied this trend.
"Then we put them in the
back, turned the car seats
around. And from '98 to 2006,
that number is 36 a year."
Few understand just how
quickly a car can heat up,
even on a moderate day.
According to one study, the
temperature inside a vehicle
can rise more than 40 degrees
in the span of an hour, with 80
percent of that increase occur-
ring during the first half hour.
And researchers found that
cracking the windows did lit-
tle to help.
Coltharp said Friday that
temperatures, especially dur-
ing Florida's hot and humid
summers, can soar in mere
minutes.
"You have to be extra vigi-
lant," he cautioned.
"Basically in every case I've
seen, it's been ignorance."
Children, often too young
to escape, are particularly vul-
nerable because their imma-
ture respiratory and circulato-
ry systems do not manage

heat as efficiently as adults'.
After a short time, the skin
grows red and dry, the\body
becomes unable to produce
sweat, and heat stroke kills
the child.
Janette Fennell, founder
and president of Kids and
Carg, a nonprofit group' that
tracks child deaths and
injuries in and around auto-
mobiles, told the AP, "No one
thinks it's going to happen to
them. I think people are lying
if they say that there wasn't
one situation in raising their
child that, 'There but for the
grace of God go I."'
Already this year, at least
16 children have died in hot
vehicles from Hawaii to
Virginia including a 4-
year-old New Orleans boy
who died on Father's Day.
Since 1998, charges were
filed in 49 percent of cases. In
those that have been decided,
81 percent resulted in convic-
tions or guilty, pleas, and half
of those brought jail sentences
- the median sentence being
two years. Parents were only
slightly less likely to be
charged and convicted than
others, but the median sen-
tence was much higher 54
months.
In cases involving paid
caregivers, 84 percent were
charged, with 96 percent of
those convicted. But while
they are jailed at about the
same rate as parents, the
median sentence in those
cases was just 12'months.
Women were jailed more
often and for longer periods
than men. But when the AP
compared mothers and
fathers, the sentencing gap
was even wider.
Mothers were jailed 59 per-
cent of the time, compared to
47 percent for fathers. And
the median sentence was three
years for dads, but five for
moms.
In 27 percent of the cases
the AP studied, the children
got into the vehicles on their
own. Th6se cases are much
less likely to be prosecuted,
though sometimes parents are
punished for negligence -
particularly where substance
abuse is involved.
Not surprisingly, the harsh-
est treatment is reserved for
those who intentionally left
their children. According to
the AP's analysis, those peo-
ple are nearly twice as likely
to serve time than people who
simply forgot the child. And
on average, they received sen-
tences that were 5 1/2 years


longer.
In many cases, police, pros-
ecutors and judges must wres-
tle with whether to charge, try
and punish an already griev-
ing parent.
According to the advocacy
Web ;site, kidsandcars.org,
Florida had 102 vehicle-


involved deaths of children
younger than 15 from 1990
until December 2006.
Nationwide, from 2002 to
2006, less than 20 percent of
children deaths with vehicles
were due to heat stroke. About
50 percent- were-blamed on
"back overs" or "front overs,"


according to kidsandcars.org.

Community steps up as Dottie's Donors


Five more donors
support local Red Cross
Special to the News-Sun.
SEBRING Five more donors have
signed on to support their local Red Cross.
They are "Dottie's Donors" direct sup-
porters of the American Red Cross in
Highlands County. Businesses and individ-
uals can pledge to support Highland County
Red Cross operations, starting at $125 per
quarter, and help ensure the long-term sur-
vival of the Red Cross in Highlands
County.
Back in April, Alan Jay Automotive
Group led the way with a $1,000 donation'.
Each month has seen new donors. Roland
Robinett joined in April with $1,000.
Highlands Sertoma Club Inc; and Heacock
Insurance Group/George Hensley joined in


Non Non


May with $500 donations each. Mabel M.
Schaffer joined "Dottie's Donors" in June
with a $1,200 donation. Now, in July,
Jackson Hewitt Tax Service has also donat-
ed $500, in addition to its annual tax season
donation campaign.
Business owner Alan Jay Wildstein and
the Florida Auto Dealers Association have
since added to his donation during the first
week of July by donating four new "Little
Anne's" Health and Safety training man-
nequins to the Highlands Red Cross.
Donors have done much more than just pro-
vide funds to their local Red Cross; they
have helped their Red Cross to help to local
people in need after natural disaster or
house fire. The American Red Cross always
endeavors to always help people deal with
disasters, whether through preparations,
response or recovery.
"Dottie's Donors" are also honoring a
former volunteer with the Red Cross in


Highlands County. Dottie Pope served for
years as both day-to-day office staff and as
a Disaster Services volunteer. Sadly, she
passed away in 2004 in the middle of the
year's stressful hurricane season. The donor
program honors her memory.
Please help support your local Red Cross
by volunteering time, energy, and funds to
help provide for people in your community
who are victims of large natural disasters or
small single-family ones, like home fires.
Helping the Red Cross ensures the Red
Cross can help you.
For more information, contact the local
American Red Cross Highlands County
Service Center at 386-4440 or e-mail
hcarc@vistanet.net. For more information

RAIN
Continued from 1A

Lakes Management specialist
for Highlands County, said
after a meeting on the subject
Thursday morning. "Watch
for the (other) lake levels to
cont;lue to rise."
M,:,t of the water in lake
Istokpoga comes from
Arbuckle Creek, and before
June and July's wet weather
the flow volume was so low it
was virtually immeasurable.
Then suddenly in the first
days of July the flow skyrock-
eted, moving past the normal
daily average of around 200-
300 cubic feet per second this
time of year to more han 600.
"Six hundred cubic feet per
second doesn't mean a lot to
people unless you look at the
flow volume, which is about
300 million gallons a day,"
Ford said. "Everything catch-
es up. When it does, it still
surprises a lot of folks how
quickly these lakes recover."
The lake has not only
returned to normal levels, but
it is higher than it was this
time last year.
Other parts of the state,
however, aren't getting nearly
the amount of rainfall.
"Representatives from the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District said
rainfall is pretty much local-
ized," Ford said. "They are,
not seeing that in the
Kissimmee area. Not yet, only
some water."
As .of Thursday Lake
Istokpoga was still hovering
at the maximum level the
water management district
will allow.

BULLY
Continued from LA
who is behaving badly, not
your child. Reassure your
child that you take it serious-
ly and that you will work out
a solution together. Here are
some ideas that you can sug-
gest:

Strategies for dealing
with bullies
Walk away. Tell the bully
to stop: "knock it off' or
"get a life." Then, act brave
and walk away. You may
have to role play with your
child to act out a convincing
"brave" part, but losing the
defensive posture can be
surprisingly effective. Kids
who ignore a bully show that
they don't care.
Avoid the bully: Since
most kids say that bullying
happens at or near school,
you or your child should tell
school personnel exactly
what has been happening.
Your childcan then use a
different bathroom, change
tables in,the lunch room or
do % whatever it takes to avoid
the bully.
Use the buddy system:
Bullies choose their targets
and are very effective in get-
ting a child isolated. Kids
who are being bullied should
make sure they have some-
one with them in places
where the bully is nearby.
They should go to and from
school with a friend or a
group of friends. Tell your
child that others are targeted
by bullies, too, and kids can
band together to help each
other.
Remove the incentives:
Whatever the bully wants or
demands, remove it until the
bully loses interest. If it's
lunch money, bring your
lunch. If it's your cell phone.
or music player, leave it
home. If someone grabs
your glasses, slip them into


a hardshell case worn on a
chain around your neck once
you are on the bus or walk-
ing home with friends. If it's
power to make you cower,
put on your "poker face" and
walk tall.
Join clubs, sports programs
and extracurricular activi-
ties: Help your child build
confidence by joining clubs
or participating in activities
where they will meet other
kids and find new interests. It
can be active sports like
baseball, karate or gymnas-
tics. It can be creative like
music, photography or com-
puter lab. Whatever gives
kids a sense of accomplish-
ment builds their own per-
sonal power.

If your kid is the bully
If you hear from a parent,
a school teacher or adminis-
trator of some other responsi-
ble adult that your child is
behaving like a bully, try to
pause and not go on the
defensive. The person telling
you is not enjoying it either.
Dwyer said in a recent
interview that when she was
a middle school principal,
she would bring all parties
involved together to problem
solve. If the parents could
not participate, they would
be notified about what the
school was doing.
"We would have the kids
write about how to solve the
problem both the bully and
the bullied, and any
bystanders or others
involved. Then they had to
come to.some sort of mutual
agreement about how to
solve it," Dwyer said.
The kids were told: "You
don't have to like each other.
But you have to leave each
other alone, because every-
body has the right to be
safe."
Dwyer said school person-
nel would change a class, or
"do whatever it took" so the
kids could avoid each other.


When you talk to your
child, do not scold or blame.
Simply say that bullying is
not acceptable. Then. ask:
"How can I help you with
this?"
Talk about why your child
is feeling angry or aggressive
or frustrated. Kids need to be
able to find words for their
feelings. Parents have to.
teach them better ways to
express feelings and learn to
interact with others. If you
don't know how to do this,
meet with a counselor, pastor
or group leader who is accus-
tomed to working with chil-
dren.
Specify the consequences
if the aggression or bullying
continue. Then teach and
reward more appropriate
behavior.
The aggressive and con-
trolling behaviors of bullies
can be redirected into leader-
ship activities. Kids who
bully will benefit from the
same types of extracurricular
activities suggested for kids
who are bullied.
Parents must find positive
activities where bold and
energetic children can excel
and get the attention they
crave. They must also find
interesting and enjoyable
activities where timid chil-
dren can build their confi-
dence.
Children do not learn how
to break the bullying cycle
by themselves. There are
lots of people, clubs and
resources to help.

lowing Web sites as sources of

Sunday, July 29, 2007 www.newssun.com Page 11A


I was spending the morn-
ing with Donald Walton,
who is the owner and opera-
tor of Lawn Pro, a company
that installs and maintains
automatic yard sprinkler sys-
tems, and right away I knew
I was facing trouble.
That was because we'd
hardly gotten to the work
site when I was assigned to a
machine that requires a two-
man team to run it and
the machine is designed to
make the work of one man
easier.
Called a trencher, this
hand pulled (never pushed)
contraption, involves rotat-
ing blades that dig out a nar-
row trench in the ground,
while spewing excess dirt to
one side, and all in a matter
of minutes.
But.
Jesus Galvan and I held
onto the handle bars, hauling
it with us while walking
backwards. With two cen-
trifugal forces at work,
going in both forward and
sideways motions, the
machine snorts and bucks in
contradiction; rattles and
vibrates in protest; and pulls
this way and that with such
energy it is as if it had a
mind of its own. So it takes
muscle and concentration to
keep it. on a straight line. We
had to work together.
Plus the thing is danger-
ous. The churning blades
almost literally blow through
the sugar sand, and can cut
through more solid sub-,

stances with almost equal
ease including PVC pipe,
tree roots and human feet.
So I had to be alert.
And this was the easiest
part of installing an irriga-
tion system.
First you have to know
what you're doing.
By which I mean you have
to know where you are
going to lay pipe and why.
That's because an auto-
matic -sprinkler system has
to do more than just get
water to plants.
Instead, it has to get vari-
ous amounts of water to dif-
ferent types of plants at reg-
ular intervals for set periods
of time.
And because a typical
pump can only produce 20
gallons of water a minute ,
through the usuaLone-inch,


pipe meaning most yards
cannot be watered all at once
- a yard is typically divided
into different zones, which
are watered in sequence.
It becomes further com-
plicated because different
sprinkler head designs dis-
tribute different amounts of
water, and the heads can be
individually adjusted beyond
that.
As if that weren't enough,
the 20-gallon-a-minute limi-
tation has to be figured for
each zone, because each
zone has its own independ-
ent pipe line and set of
sprinkler heads.
Walton had my head
swimming. "It gets to be a
numbers game," he said.
"This head uses 2.8 gallons
a minute. That limits me to
seven heads in the front
zone, for 19.6 gallons."
When I asked him how
much water it took to water
an average yard (80 feet by
125 feet, minus the house)
Walton said each zone typi-
callj runs for 48 minutes.
Multiply that by the 20 gal-
lons a minute and one zone
uses 960 gallons. A four
zone yard, therefore, uses
3,840 gallons for every com-
pleted watering cycle.
Design the thinking
part.of the job while
daunting and a challenge,
doesn't require much physi-
cal energy,'beyond scouting
out the location and posi-
tioning the marker flags for-.
the technicians.

While Don Walton, the owner of Lawn Pro, paces off dis-
tances in the background, Antonio Sanchez fills in trenches
with a tool that looks exactly like a yard rake except that its
puller is solid, without teeth.


Walton had set out the
flags marking the four zones
when we first arrived and
Galvan and Antonio
Sanchez, his technicians,
were unloading supplies and
the soon-to-be-dreaded
trencher machine.
Each zone used a different
type of sprinkler head,
Walton said, and was repre-
sented by a different color
flag.
At this point in the enter-
prise, the irrigation designer
has to have.a knowledge of
botany. What kinds of plants


need what kind of water and
knowing where to place pop-
up rotary sprayers, or small-
er, non-moving jet-sprays is
essential.

This is especially true for
watering grass lawns. A St.
Augustine variety of grass
needs significantly more
water than a native variety
like Bahia, for example.
Because Galvan and'
Sanchez read the flags like a
map, they kept up a steady
work pace with minimal

these things right sets the table

Strangely, even though you

Closing the gap between what

require a coach.
I find myself talking about
the need for objectivity a lot

supervision.
When I say "kept up the
pace," by the way, what I
really mean is "the human
tornadoes never slowed
down."
By now, I've worked with
many teams who work with
calm confidence and an effi-
ciency of motion that makes
me stare in admiration. But
these two men were truly
remarkable. Totally focused,
never pausing, smoothly
going from one task to the
next, they-gave the Energizer
Bunny a run for its money.
For example, we arrived at
the work site at 8:30 a.m. and
were hooking up the distribu-
tion system by 10:10, less
than two hours later. Keep in
mind, I was not nearly so
fast, especially in hand dig-
ging and laying pipe, so they
would have been finished
even sooner without me.
Walton's efficient way of
turning vision into reality
helped, too. He is very
organized, and thinks ahead.
For example, once the
trenches were complete -
some had to be dug out by
hand the connecting
pieces were put near the
places where they would be
needed so we didn't have to
run back and forth while glu-
ing pipe sections and putting
them in the ground.
Then we went about the
business of cutting the pipe
to size and gluing it together.
While I try to be a neat
worker, I am the kind of
painter who gets as much
paint on his shirt as on the
wall. Same goes for glue as it
turns out. Just as I was notic-
ing a burning sensation on
my hands, Walton warned me
to be careful. The glue
works, he explained, by
slightly melting the PVC
plastic which then hardens in
place. The chemical reaction
can irritate skin.
SWhile the pain didn't bring
tears to my eyes (it was irri-
"tating more than painful), I
pass that warning along.
One thing that was cool
was how the glue dried to a

dead skin kind of finish I
could peel off or leave hang-
ing for a Hollywood sci-fi-
ish kind of creepy movie
look.
Laying the pipe had to be
done carefully. This is
because there is so much of
it. Water has to be carried
from its source (well pump
or city connection) to the dis-
tribution system, and from
there back out to each zone.
Some trenches had two, three
or four different pipe lines in
them as they snaked across
the yard. Making sure I was
working on the correct sec-
tion of pipe took a lot of dou-
ble checking.
The distribution system
works off of a timer, solenoid
triggers and an actual distrib-
utor which, using water pres-
sure, open'and shut
hydrovalves that control the
flow to each zone.
The ironic thing about
working with PVC material
is that in-large pieces it is
very flexible. Long sections
of pipe bend over your shoul-
der, for example, when you
carry them. '
But in short pieces, PVC"'
pipe can be stiff and suscep-
tible to breaking,so Walton
uses flexible rubber piping to
connect the actual sprinkler


heads to the system. That
provides wiggle room for the
head, avoiding damage
should a lawn mower run.
over it, or a person stub a
toe.
Walton has been doing this
kind of work, on and off, for
most of his life because he
worked with his father's lawn
service while growing up in
Lake County. An emergency
medical technician with the
fire department, he moved
here about five years ago
with his wife to be near her
family. Now divorced,
Walton had begun working
part-time with Lawn Pro
about three and a half years
ago, finally leaving the fire
department and buying the
irrigation business himself.
While installing yard
sprinkler systems is reward-
ing work and anything but
boring, it is also physically
demanding. I was soaked
through with sweat and sun-
burned by the time I was
done, and I felt like I'd gone

10 rounds with a heavy
weight. But that was nothing
Scomppared 'to dealing with all
that math, whieh added up to
trouble no matter how I
looked at it.

or a mentor, find a good one.
This could be your banker,
your accountant or other pro-
fessional. At the very least, ask
a few folks you are-comfort-
able with to give you some
observations about your opera-
tion, Then comes the really
hard part listening.
Here's the checklist:
"If I build it they will
come." The fact is, sometimes
they come and sometimes they
don't. Make sure there is a
need and have a plan for get-
ting the word out.
Find your market niche.
There has to be something dis-
tinctively different and valu-
able to your customer, or you
are vulnerable to heavy compe-
tition from all directions,
including the big boxes. A
written competitive analysis
comparing yourself to the com-
petition is well worth the
effort, for it will help you bet-
ter define your strategy. Take
the time to think this through.
Sell aggressively. I find it
strange that failure to do this is
an important cause of business
failure, but there it is. Retailers
and others spend 5'to 6 percent
of sales on advertising and pro-
motion.
This cost of doing business
can't be ignored. But make
sure you have a real value
proposition from the standpoint
of the customer, or all your

whether it is positive or not.
Miners used to take parakeets
into the coal mine to give
warning of dangerous gas lev-
els. A canary is much more
sensitive and would be a warn-
ing signal by, well, dying.
When that happened it was
time to do something, like
evacuate!
Think of a dissatisfied cus-
tomer as a possible canary in
the coal mine not that you
wish them harm and not that
you will evacuate. Rather, they
may be the first warning that
you need to change something
before it causes business harm.
Keep track of what is
going on with customers,
whose repeat business is
extremely important, and who
are often your best source of
new business. Make sure you
know what they are thinking
- how satisfied are they, what
other products or services
would like from you, etc.
Location. There's no easy
formula for this one but a bad
location can mean serious


problems for a retail business.
Too little traffic, too much traf-
fic, good parking or not
enough parking, wrong side of
the street for your customers,
ugly or nice, good or bad
neighborhood, right or wrong
demographics.
All this and more can have a
heavy positive or negative
impact. For some businesses,
depending on the value propo-
sition, there can be a simple
tradeoff rent vs. advertising.
Low rent can be offset by
increased advertising, or vice
versa. But this is not always
the case. Sometimes it's all
about the location.
If you are dissatisfied with
your marketing results, sit
down and review your business
vs. this checklist. If you can't
find some points for action, try
it again with somebody more
objective!

autism or mental disabilities or spina
bifida can put a strain on a family. No
one argues this. Even for parents who are
totally devoted to their kids, there are
times hearing for such a child is over-
whelming financially,.ph sicall men-,
tally and spiritually.
But should the bringing of such chil-
dren into the world be thought of as
'wrongful birth?"
My friend recently sent me an article
about a couple who filed a malpractice
suit against a doctor, claiming he failed
to diagnose a birth defect in their first
son. Had he done so, they could have had
a test done while the mother was preg-
nant with the second child and discov-
ered that he had the same defect. If they
had known that to be the case, they

would have aborted the second child.
Thus, the birth of the second child is des-
ignated a "wrongful birth" and the par-
ents sued for money to care for the child
for the rest of his life.
There is no question that caring for
anyone with disabilities is costly. I know
that giving birth to a child with problems
can be a shock to parents. It can mean the
death of dreams and expectations.
But to claim that the birth of that child
is wrong? Have we really sunk to that
level in our self-centered society?
-"These parents aren't calling a mass of
cells a wrongful birth. This is a living,
breathing human being. When the par-
ents go to court (and there have been a
number of these cases) they are in
essence saying that the baby that lives
among them shouldn't have been
allowed to be born.
What is next? Will parents petition for
the right to end the disabled child's life
because it was a wrongful birth? After
all, it would cost a lot of money to take
care' of that child, and he or she really
won't have a decent life anyway, so why

Hope invasion of
privacy not in vain

Editor:
Maybe I am missing some-
thing, but I fail to see how it
is a service to anyone to post
the names, positions and
salaries of all the county
employees in the newspaper.
Although I realize this infor-


mation
record.


is a matter of public


I have lived in this county
39 years and not once have I
ever had a reason to go down
and look up county employ-
ees' salaries. The only thing I
can see this accomplishing is
absolutely killing the moral.
within these departments,
which makes it hard to run a


business efficiently or effec-
tively.
As a taxpayer, I do not find
this acceptable.
I do hope that someone out
there found this information
to be useful, and that this
gross invasion of privacy was
not in vain.

let them live?
Does that paragraph make you uncom-
fortable? It should. We tread into danger-
ous territory when we start saying that
the birth of a child is somehow "wrong."
It is a mere step to go from 'Iwrongful
birth" to "wrongful existence."
/And what of the child who is the
object of such a suit? What if he discov-
ers his parents once filed a suit claiming
he or she should not have been born?
How would you feel if your parents made
that assessment?
I will not deny that parents with dis-
abled children need love, support, and all
the help they can get. As do the rest of
their family. By all.means, let's hold
their hands and. let them weep,on our
shoulders on the hard days, rejoice with
them at every milestone reached.
But please, please, can we throw the
phrase "wrongful birth" out of our
vocabulary? No baby asks to be born. No
baby asks to be disabled.
No baby should be penalized with
such a label ifor the crime of being born
with problems.

Helping one's

A reader writes. I enjoy
having company over at my
home. I always provide
refreshments and sometimes
a meal. I don't appreciate
guests, young or old, going
into my refrigerator or cup-
board without asking, or
without my consent. Some-
times they will take the last
container of juice, soda,
package of cracker or cook-
ies. I think that they are abus-
ing my hospitality. Is it
because they weren't taught?
Assuming that you are
comfortable with your guests,
and if they are regular visi-
tors, they may feel welcome
and comfortable, and so they
take it for granted that it's
OK for them to go into your
refrigerator, and other private
areas without expressed per-

It is in poor taste for a
guest to take or ask for single
items, unless the item is
offered by the host/hostess.

Defense leaders recognize

education, family issues

with military members


Special to the News-Sun
The Defense Department
has identified 10 key issues of
importance to military, mem-
bers and their families,
including education policies
and benefits, accessible sup-
port for military families, and
spouse employment opportu-
nities. Navy Adm. Timothy J.
Keating, commander of U.S.
Pacific Command, met in
Honolulu with David S.C.
'Chu, undersecretary of
defense for personnel and
readiness, this week to dis-
cuss such key issues.
Among the most important
of the 10 key issues is the
interstate compact for educat-
ing children of military mem-
bers. The mobile military
lifestyle creates challenges
for children, and the Defense
Department wants to provide
a policy platform to head
those off, Chu said. For
example, some school dis-
tricts will allow children to
start kindergarten at age 5,
while others require children
to be 6 years old to start
school. Children who start
school in one location might
not be able to go back to
school at a new location when
military families move.
"If the young lad or the
young lady has already start-
ed school, why can't he or she
keep going?" Chu asked.
"Many school systems say,
'No, we've got to wait,' and
that's a big issue with a mili-
tary family," he said. "We'd
like to get issues like these
ironed out at a national level
so military families can do the
same thing every other
American family can do."
Other key issues include
policies for members of the
S reserve components, unem-


ployment compensation for
military spouses, and respon-
sive voting programs. "Those
issues affect the well-being of
our families," Chu said. "We
put a lot of burdens on mili-
tary personnel; the family has
to be well supported if they're
going to accept those bur-
dens."
Keating said healthy part-
nerships like the one between
the Defense Department and
the state of Hawaii are key to
providing the best possible
quality of life for military
families. "It is that commun-
ion between the community
and the military members that
will produce long-lasting
effects," he said.
"It is a powerful tool for us
here," he added. "The gover-
nor and the mayor have both
promised me that they would
pay close attention to any ini-
tiatives that I brought to their
attention, and they have fol-
lowed through on that."
"While the meeting took
place in Hawaii, the issues
discussed -are relevant to the
military family in every part
of the world," according to
Joseph A. Dionne, Highlands
County Veteran Services
Officer.
Dionne said, "I'm pleased
the Defense Department is
looking at the military family
and discussing elements that
impact the daily lives of each
of the members."
Dionne served in the U.S.
Army for more than 30 years
before retiring. His family
traveled the world with him,
and understands the issues
and emotions of a military
family.
The Veterans Services
Office is at 7205 S. George
Blvd., Suite 119 (402-6623).

Risk to TRICARE beneficiary data

met with proactive response


Salute to veterans plates available


Special to the News-Sun
You don't have to be a veteran to "salute"
veterans and active duty military personnel.
Joining the "Florida Salutes Veterans" and
the U.S. Marine Corps license plates already
available are new plates for the Army, Navy,
Air Force, and the Coast Guard.
These new military specialty automobile
license plates, along with the "Florida Salutes
Veterans" and the U.S. Marine Corps license
plates, are available now at local DMV


offices.
Check with the Highlands County Tax
Collector to purchase the specialty plate.
These tags are among the most affordable and
patriotic specialty tags available.
A $15 portion of the $17 purchase price
goes to the Veterans' Homes Trust Fund for
maintenance and operation of Florida's five
state veterans' nursing homes and one state
veterans' domiciliary home.


VA researchers develop prosthetic ankle


Special to the News-Sun
Veterans with lower-leg
amputations can look forward
to having a prosthetic ankle-
foot that matches their natural
ease of motion, thanks to
research funded by the
Department of Veterans
Affairs and conducted by
researchers from the
Department and two of the
nations top universities.
"Veterans are entitled to the
best this nation has to offer,
and at VA, we're constantly
redefining the meaning of
best," according to Secretary
of Veterans Affairs Jim
Nicholson.
"This new ankle-foot pros-
thetic is another example of
VA's medical innovations for
veterans that, will benefit all
Americans."


'Veterans are
entitled to the
best this nation

has to offer.'

JIM NICHOLSON
Secretary of Veterans Affairs

Researchers say the new
ankle-foot prosthetic is the
first in a new family of artifi-
cial limbs. It will replicate
natural motion by propelling
people forward using tendon-
like springs powered by an
electric motor.
Through VA-funded
research, the Center for
Restorative and Regenerative
Mediciiie,'' a parthieship
between the Providence VA


Medical Center in Rhode.
Island, Brown University and
Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, developed' the
new prosthesis.
The goal of the Center for
Restorative and Regenerative
Medicine is to restore natural
function to amputees. This
new ankle-foot product prom-
ises to serve the need of many
veterans.
VA expects to spend more
than $1.2 billion this year on
prosthetics and sensory aids,
which includes glasses and
hearing aids.
The Department operates
about 60 orthotic-prosthetic
labs across the country that
fabricate, fit and repair artifi-
cial limbs or oversee limbs
provided by commercial ven-
dors. ". ..


Special to the News-Sun
A limited amount of TRI-
CARE beneficiary data may
have been placed at risk
through a violation of i eternal
computer security practices at
Science Applications
International Corporation.
Analysis shows the chance
any data was compromised is
low, but action is being taken
to ensure that affected TRI-
CARE beneficiaries are kept
informed.
The incident occurred
when patient data was stored
in a manner that did not meet
security specifications for the
Department of Defense or
SAIC. The information was
held on a single, SAIC-owned
server at an SAIC location in
Florida. The server, which
was not behind a firewall and
did not contain adequate pass-
word protections is no longer
in use.
The data, which was
processed by SAIC under sev-
eral military health care con-
tracts, may have included per-
sonal information such as
beneficiary names, addresses,
social security numbers, birth
dates, and limited health
information.
SAIC is mailing letters
from Army Major General
Elder Granger, Deluty
Director, TRICARE
Management Activity and
retired Marine Corps Major
General Arnold L. Punaro,
SAIC executive vice pesi-
dent, to approximately
580,000 households inf m-
ing beneficiaries of the n-
tial risk. Letters will ve
the week of July 23 and so
contain consumer ide ity
protection information.
"We take this potential data
compromise very seriously,"
Granger said. "The risk has
been identified.as low, but the
Department of Defense is


'We take this
potential data
compromise very
seriously.'

JIM NICHOLSON
Secretary of Veterans Affairs
ensuring that steps are taken
to keep affected beneficiaries
informed."
SAIC is making a call cen-
ter available to handle ques-
tions and concerns and the
toll-free number for the
United States and a collect-
call number for overseas resi-
dents in included with the let-
ters. The center will be
staffed with identity theft spe-
cialists who will answer con-
cerns about the incident as
well as provide callers with
general information on credit,
fraud and identity theft mat-
ters.
The centers are staffed
from 8 a.m. to midnight
Monday-Friday 8 a.m. until
further notice.
Beneficiaries receiving
notification letters are also
being offered a free, one-year
subscription to an identity
restoration service.
The letters also contain a
unique identification number
along with contact phone
numbers. The numbers are:
United States: 1-888-862-
2680; International (collect):
1-515-365-3550.
Links to additional infor-
mation can be found at the
TRICARE Web site "press
room" at
www.tricare.mil/pressroom/.

CARE beneficiaries can take
to protect themselves from
identity theft is available at

Lessons

learned from

the garden
Perhaps, as the saying
goes, we are nearer God's
heart in the garden than any-
where else on earth.because
that's where God created the
first man and woman. Or,
because growing things har-
bor lessons for us to glean.
I was reminded of this
when my sister-in-law,
Joyce, shared insights by
simply observing a dead
branch in her yard.
She said the branch hadn't
fallen to the ground. Rather
it had forked itself over
another branch and had got-
ten stuck in the tree.
Observing it, she was
struck by a thought. No
longer did she see just a dead
branch suspended within the
other tree branches.
She saw herself and it
prompted her to become
introspective.
"What in my life has God
pruned that I am still hang-
ing onto?"
She prayed and asked the
Lord to please leave the
branch right where it was
until she discerned those
things she must let go of -
those things he had already
pruned.
I remember when one of
the hurricanes destroyed half
of a favorite shade tree in
our backyard. The dead
branches created danger and
had to be removed.
With the help of a friend
and a lot of sweat equity, we
eventually removed all the
dead branches dragging
them out to the roadside for
pick-up. It made the tree
look so bare and imbalanced.
That may be how we feel
when God prunes that which
is useless in us. We're so
used to having that 'branch'
to hang onto, that we don't
feel right without.it.
The other half of the tree
in our yard has since filled
out so nicely, that I'm grate-
ful we didn't have it
removed. With time, we, too,
rebound from pruning and
are more useful than ever.
Another time my sister-in-
law thought that a fallen lilac
tree had died in a winter
storm. However, the bloom-
ing lilacs in spring showed
her it was still rooted.
Once again she allowed
the Holy Spirit to speak to
her heart.
"Which of my Christian
friends may have fallen away
from the Lord?" she thought.
Had she given up on some-
one who still had life from
above in them?
Jesus says in John 15: 5,
NKJV, "I am the vine, you
are the branches. He who
abides in Me, and I in him
bears much fruit; for without
Me you can do nothing."
Joyce realized God would
have her go to that friend to
help re-establish his or her
rootS firmly in Christ.
Gardens bloom with les-
sons of eternal significance.

Prescribed burning also a useful tool in agricultural setting


Last week I wrote about
prescription burns and how
they benefit the forests and
natural plant communities.
But did you know that pre-
scribed burning is also a use-
ful tool in the agricultural
industry? It is one of the
most valuable tools for land
managers in Florida.
A number of benefits are
obtained from prescribed fire
including the control of unde-
sirable vegetation, prepara-
tion of sites for harvesting,
planting or seeding, control
of plant disease and pest con-
trol, reduction of wildfire
hazards, wildlife habitat
improvement, enhancement
of seed and seedling produc-
tion, improving growing con-
ditions for desired species
and improvement of forage
and grazing for livestock.
Many undesirable species
of plants are not tolerant of
fire; therefore, prescribed
burning is an effective
method in eliminating these
pests. Lack of periodic fire


may contribute to the inva-
sion of exotic or undesirable
species. In many cases, fire
must be implemented to the
site to achieve long-term con-
trol of the problem species.
In the case of site prepara-
tion for seeding or planting,
burning consumes much of
the debris that is on the
ground. The result is more
tightly packed beds and bet-
ter seeding survival.
Prescribed fire also recycles
nutrients, making them avail-
able for the next crop. Low
intensity burns increase
availability, palatability,
quality and quantity of grass-
es and forbs. Regular burning
of rangelands and under story
plants improves forage quali-
ty and quantity for wildlife
and livestock. The new plants
are full of nutrients and are
often more nutritious and
tasty to animals.
Landowners may experi-
ence challenges with the con-
trol of plant disease and
pests. Prescribed burning is


one of the most
practical methods of
disease and pest
control.
Herbicides and
pesticides may be

instances; however,
prescribed burning
is generally not as N(
costly, saving the Fron
landowner both time
and money. In addi- Wate
tion, as stated above, Corine
prescribed burning
replenishes the soil with
nutrients and actually stimu-
lates new growth for a
healthier crop.
By using prescribed fire,
fuel reduction is achieved.
When areas are not burned
for long periods of time,
debris will build up on the
ground. Plants may die, trees
Smay fall from storms, dead
leaves may accumulate and
all of these give rise to the
possibility of a wildfire in
dry conditions. Fire, when
carefully planned and used as


er



B'


a tool, will reduce
the amount of fuel
buildup on the
ground. When the
Sfuels are not avail-
4 able, the possibility
of a wildfire is sub-
stantially reduced.
Wildlife habitat is
WS greatly improved by
The prescription burns.
Fruit and seed pro-
Shed duction is stimulat-
S ed. The amount and
quality of vegetation
increases. Openings are cre-
ated for feeding and travel.
Dove, deer, quail and turkey
benefit from prescribed fire
as do many listed wildlife
species, including the Florida
panther, gopher tortoise, indi-
go snake and red cockaded
woodpecker. Fire can stimu-
late production of desirable
plant growth, improve food
availability and restore
ecosystem balance.
Burning also enhances
seed and seedling production.
Since the soil is full of nutri-


ents from the burn, the quali-
ty of the soil is improved,
giving rise to healthy crops.
Dead material low in nutrient
value is removed while new
growth high in protein, phos-
phorus and calcium becomes
readily available. These ben-
efits may be manifested in
increased seasonal livestock
weight gains.
All of these benefits allow
for the production of the
desired plant species and
improve the forage and graz-
ing for livestock. It is obvi-
ous by now, that carefully
planned, prescribed fire is a
useful tool for the landowner.
Some state and federal pro-
grams, such as the
Environmental Quality
Incentive Program of the
U.S. Department of
Agriculture, Natural
Resource Conservation
Service, encourage the use of
prescribed burning and the
federal government recog-
nizes its use as an important
element of land management.


Of course, like any tool,
prescribed fire must be used
properly. Planning is critical.
Proper planning to ensure
control includes considering
every variable, including fuel
amounts and types, weather
conditions, surrounding areas
and education and skill of
those performing the burn.
Prescribed burns are criti-
cal in today's world in an
effort to maintain native
ecosystems as well as man-
aged land. The reasons are
clear. The NRCS has cost
share programs available to
the land owner that include
prescribed burning.

Home & Garden


Remodel your home



on almost any budget


Special to the News-Sun
Summer is finally here and now is the
perfect time to take on that home remod-
eling or decorating project you've been
meaning to start! With the kids off at
camp and the longer days, you've got a,'
great excuse to update your dining room
with hardwood flooring or give your
master bathroom a makeover.
However, before you begin any home
design project, it's important to consider
your budget. Costs can add up quickly
and you'll want to have a plan before you
jump into the project headfirst!!The good
news is that you,can make remarkable
updates to your home on any budget.

Full-scale renovation
If you have a large budget for your
remodeling project, you can create a
truly stunning space, incorporating cus-
tom-designed and hand-crafted pieces.
Sturrock recommends choosing distinc-
tive richly toned woods and other opu-
lent materials like marble and stained
glass and a mix of texture in-fabrics like
silk and velvet.
For a kitchen or bathroom, opt for cus-
tom-designed built-in cabinetry that
extends to ceilings for a dramatic appear-
ance. And, add one-of-a-kind antique
pieces to accent the decor.
The right flooring can also make a
strong impact on the overall design of a
room. Michael Carr from Carpet One
Floor & Home notes that hardwood or
ceramic tile are popular choices right
now because they create a very elegant,
rich appearance.
The Liz Claiborne Prestige collection
offers a range of beautiful hardwood
styles, while the Liz Claiborne Home
Stone & Tile collection includes truly
unique glass, -metal and stone tiles and
accent pieces.

Average budget
While a full-scale renovation can cer-
tainly make a dramatic change in your
home, there are many remodeling
options that you can accomplish with an
Average budget.
-..- Sturrock recommends investing in key
elements that will draw focus and make
the maximum impact on your space both


functionally and aesthetically.
For example, choose multifunctional
furniture, like a chest that can hold
sweaters or pillows or an armoire to
organize electronic equipment.
Also consider creating a feature wall
with a textural stone veneer or wood pan-
els with beautiful grains.
Complement your feature wall or
interesting furniture piece with clean
lines, neutral colors and tone-on-tone
textured fabrics.
Carr suggests choosing a neutral col-
ored carpet, like gray or beige, with a
unique pattern or texture, like a shag or
loop style..

Conservative budget \
For homeowners on a conservative
budget, Sturrock recommends creating a
strong focal point using inexpensive
materials. Add a punch of color by paint-
ing one wall with a bold hue or hang a
unique geometric wall covering. In a
bedroom, try upholstering a headboard or
an entire bed wall to create a focal point
that won't require you to purchase
expensive furniture.
Or, in a bathroom, try updating the,
hardware or adding panel molding to
existing cabinets.
"There are ways to get more bang for
your buck no matter what flooring sur-
face you are looking for," added Carr. If
you like the look of hardwood or natural
stone, consider a vinyl or laminate floor-
ing with a wood or. stone pattern. Styles
in the Earthscapes vinyl collection from
Carpet One Floor & Home bear a striking
resemblance to real ceramic tile and
hardwood flooring.
Plus, they are extremely scratch and
wear-resistant, making Earthscapes a
great long-term investment.
If you're looking for carpet, Carr rec-
ommends the Lees collection. There are
a range of unique styles that will help
you make an impact with a conservative
budget. Plus, Lees carpet has amazing
stain resistant qualities and a 25-year
stain protection warranty, so it's sure to
last you for a long time!
Here are a:few more budget-savvy tips
from the experts:
0 Update an old sofa by adding a slip-

Marble in Tiberias Gold from the Liz
Claiborne Home Stone & Tile collection
is a popular choice right now because it
creates a very elegant, rich appearance.

podcast at CarpetOne.com/podcasts.

cover and/or some new throw pillows
rather than completely replacing the
piece.
Arrange photos of family and
friends using similar framing to compose
a unified feature wall. This brings
warmth to the space ard creates a
dynamic focal point.
Enhance the architecture of your
home with the simple addition of strip
molding above baseboards or below
crown moldings. Maintain a space
between them and paint the entire area as
trim to create a grander profile.
Create a dimensional wall display
using shadowboxed textiles mounted on
a white matte. Use fabric remnants with
.unique patterns or embellishments for a
distinctive yet inexpensive statement.
Look for old furniture at a garage
sale, flea market or online site. Refinish
the furniture to make it your own!
Sturrock and Carr agree that there are
many simple, yet effective ways to
update your home on any level of budg-
et! For more design and flooring ideas,

Why you should


have your soil tested


The main purpose
behind soil testing
is to establish the
lime and fertilizer
needs of a crop
prior to planting.
Lime and fertilizer
are essential for
good crop produc-
tion.
Many vegetables
and flowers will not
respond favorably


5. How much
fertilizer is need for
your crop and soil?
If you cannot
answer these ques-
tions a soil test
may help.
'& A soil test can't


Growing

when soil pH is too
high or too low. It is suggest-
ed that you have your soil pH
tested every two to three
years to minimize plant
growth problems relating to
soil pH. The pH of your soil
and a lime requirement test
are the only accurate means
to determine if your lawn,
garden or landscape will ben-
efit from addition of lime.
Each of us have different
opinions about lawns, land-
scape care or garden produc-
tivity because we each have
different skills, background
training and experiences.
People from the north have
found a big difference in the
soil and soil requirements in
Florida.
In the soil testing circular
239 by Gerald Kidder and R.
D Rhue, Extension Soil spe-
cialists. These circulars are
available in the Master
Gardener's Office. They state
you should ask yourself the
following questions.
Can you answer these
questions?
1. What is the pH of your
soil?
2. What are the fertility
levels'of the principal nutri-
ents?
3. How much and what
kind of lime does your soil
need? .-.
4. Which nutrients need to
be added to your soil as fer-
tilizer?


1. Tell you
which crop to grow.
2. Preyent poor
crops caused by


drought, disease,
insects, too much water, etc.
3. Substitute for proper
for proper cultural practices
* 4. Take place of good
management.
The soil sample is most
important for a good soil
test.
How to make a soil sample
1. See your county Master
Gardeners for complete
information.
2. Divide into areas for
sampling. Sample separately
areas with different crop
growth, soil color, lime or
fertilizer histories.
3. Don't sample areas too
small to be fertilized or .
limed separately. Don't sam-
ple unusual areas. Avoid
wet spots, feeding areas,
burn piles, old fence rows,
sand boils, etc.
4. Identify samples by let-
ter or number. Make a sketch
or records of some kind so
you will know where each
sample came from.
There's a small fee for
each sample. You may bring
them to the Extension Office,
4509 George Blvd. Sebring
for testing anytime between
9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
Monday-Friday.

Hammock's Sanchez wins Intepreter of Year award


Sunday, July 29, 2007 7B


Summer's in full
swing and we're
working hard in
spite of the high
heat and humidity.
Rafigers are regis-
tering campers,
cleaning restrooms,
removing trash,
mowing grass,
painting and doing
repair work.
Rangers are also

Florida
Dorothy Harris


leading guided tram
tours around the park's his-
toric South Canal. These
tours are a favorite aspect of
this job for most of our
rangers. The hour-long excur-
sion provides visitors with a,
glimpse of the remote areas,
as well as an opportunity to
view alligators.
. Park Ranger Rick Sanchez
counts these on-the-job expe-
riences as his most fun,
favorite part of being a park
ranger. "It's rewarding to me
when people can visit the
park, attend a program and
then leave with more under-
standing and a heightened
curiosity about a particular
subject," Rick said.
He adds that interpretation
is an integral part of manag-
ing a park, and as the recipi-
ent of our District's
Interpreter of the Year Award,
Rick ensures that our visitors
receive this benefit. "We are
here to protect and preserve
and the best way to do that is
to educate the public so they
understand why we do what
we do," states Rick.
Helping visitors to under-
stand the sometimes technical
information is what interpre-


station is all about.
The interpreter
strives to connect
the topic being dis-
cussed with experi-
ences familiar to
their audience.
Interpretation is
also used to spur
interest in a topic
as the interpreter
strives to offer
enough information
to provide under-


standing, but still leave the
visitor intrigued enough to
want to learn more. Ranger
Rick shared a story, though,
about a long ago tram tour
that perhaps didn't leave
much to the imagination of
his audience.
During his eight year
tenure at Shark Valley in the
Everglades, Rick also provid-
ed nature tours. That tram
was a one piece unit with a
set of stairs, similar to a
small tour bus. Across the
stairs hung a safety rope that
latched onto a set of metal
hooks.
Rick had perfected, or
thought he had perfected, a
quick means of exiting .the
vehicle.
"I would grab the metal
pole near the stairs," said
Rick, "and do my fireman
imitation by grabbing the
pole and swinging out, clear-
ing the stairs. One time when
I did this,.one of the metal
hooks caught the bottom end
of my shorts."
Laughing, Rick continues
his recollection, "next thing I
knew, I had flipped upside
down and landed flat on my

back on the roadway with the
air knocked out of me."
There's a bit more to this
story, but I'll let you ask
Rick about it next time you
see him.
Chances are you won't see
Rick doing his fireman imita-
tion here at the Hammock,
but you will receive an excel-
lent interpretative experience.
We are very proud that
Ranger Rick was chosen for
the esteemed honor of
District Four's Interpreter of
the Year. Only one park
ranger from each district is


chosen, and one of those five
will later be honored as the
Interpreter of the Year for the
entire Florida Park Service.
"It does feel nice to be rec-
ognized by your agency and
know that you've done well,
but the best feeling is when
the visitor comes up to you
afterwards to let you know
what a great time they have
had. That's the best," empha-
sizes Rick.

Ranger with Highlands

A different day of golf, brought to you



courtesy of the Red, White and Blue


By DANIEL HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING The second
annual Red, White and Blue
fundraising tournament went
off without a hitch Saturday
at the Sebring Golf Club,
More than 60 players teed
it up in an effort for the top
scores as well as helping out
the Sebring High School
girl's golf team's upcoming
trip to Wisconsin.
The trip takes the team to
the Wisconsin Dells for two
days of tournament play.
The girls won by two
strokes last year, with this
years event including an 18-
hole match with three local
teams Friday and another 18-
hole match Saturday, with 25
teams from all over the state
of Wisconsin.

'After we went

up there last year,
it's all the girls

have talked about

since.'

TOM MCCLURG
Sebring Golf Club Pro

"It's different up there,
with the courses having 100-
feet of elevation changes,"
Sebring Golf Club Pro Tom
McClurg said. "And Wayne
Stapleford has us really
booked solid up there, with
the hotel, dinners out at
restaurants and a boat ride on
the Wisconsin River.
"After we went up there
last year, it's all the girls have
talked about since," he con-
tinued. "It's a great golf and
life experience for the girls."


The tournament
The 27-hole Red, White
and Blue event added a bit of
a twist, with three different
formats for each set of nine
holes played.
For the "red" part of the
tournament, players would tee
off from the red tees and the
two-person teams would
alternate each shot with one
person teeing off on all odd-
numbered holes and the other
from the even-numbered
holes.
The "white" portion of play
had the men teeing off from
the white tees, the women
from the yellow tees, in a
two-man, best-ball with
strokes format.
And for the "blue" segment
of golfing, men would play
from the blue tees, women
from the white, in a two-per-
son scramble.
The switching from format
to format made for an inter-
esting 'day of golf which
while confusing at times, did-
n't keep things from rolling
right along.
"It moved along real well,"
event director and assistant
pro at Sebring Andy Kessling
said. "It makes for a long day,
overall, but it went smoothly
and it was a lot of fun."
The tournament began with
an 8:30 shotgun start under
rather damp conditions from
the night-long rain and early
morning dew making for
good reads pn the greens as
the putted balls left a trail.
But as the sun elevated into
the sky and turned the tem-
peratures up, the fairways and
greens dried out, adding
another level of variety for

Not too much science in fishing


As long-time fishermen,
most of us oldsters have
read with great interest the
fishing stories in the leading
sports magazines.
Some of those writers
have spent hours on the
water and have caught their
share of wall-hangers as
proof that they know of
what they speak.
Sometimes their writings
contain good advice, other
times the best you can say is
that they are entertaining.
At times their ultra-scien-
tific approach leads us into' a
maze of information that the
everyday bass fisherman
very rarely uses.
I have caught a lot of bass
that weighed 10-pounds or
more.
Having practiced catch
and release for several years,
I quit counting after a cou-
ple of dozen.


Outdoors
Lloyd Jones
I am not a pro-fisherman,
though I have fished all over
this big, beautiful country
catching salmon and trout in
the mountain streams of
Washington, Idaho and
Oregon.
Indiana and Kentucky
were great for both large-
mouth and smallmouth bass,
while Michigan and
Minnesota always filled my
stringer with walleyes and
northern pike.


And now here I am in the
bass capital of the world.
There is no great mystery
in catching, bass.
Think that anyone who
can crank a reel or bait a
hook, can catch largemouth
bass in Florida.
There are so many lakes
and streams full of bass that
the odds are all in favor of
the angler.
Sometimes the fish attack
your bait as it hits the water.
At times the bass will fol-
low a bait right back to the
boat.
When feeding, they can be
voracious.
This tendency gives the
angler a great advantage.
Barometric pressure and
moon phases may have an
effect on the angler's fishing
success but how much we
really can't measure.
I watch for the weather


fronts that move through and
fish accordingly but I really
don't rely too much on moon
phases.
I was reading an article in
a leading men's magazine a
few years ago touting three
new fly rods that had just
appeared on the market.
They claimed the new
super-charged graphite rods
had much less wind resist-
ance, allowing them to slice
rather than bully their way
through the air.
Personally, I didn't under-
stand what they meant
because I had never seen a
fly rod bully its' way
through the air.
Have you?
All the fly rods I have
owned were light and deli-
cate and couldn't have bul-
lied their way through any-
thing.
Oh yes, they didn't prom-

ise a larger catch, only that
their rods would slice air
and cost you either $495 or
$550.
Those in the manufactur-
ing and marketing business
tell us we need a rod of a
certain weight and length
matched with a particular
reel.
This is very important to
your success according to
the makers and their spokes-
men.
Long before I could afford
a fly rod, I was catching
largemouths with a cane
pole.
The bass didn't shy away
from my bait because it was
tied to a cane pole.
If all of us fished the way
the pro-anglers preach, we
would need big boats,
expensive rods and reels

See LLOYD, page 3D


A pleasant


reminder

It's a refreshing reminder
we get a glimpse of on this
Sunday in the middle of
summer, amid these troubled
times in the sporting world.
As the last couple weeks
have seen just a whirlwind of
horrible news coming out of
each of three major profes-
sional sports leagues, we are
about to be reminded of the
good of at least one of the
games,
Today, the Major League
Baseball Hall of Fame will
be inducting Cal Ripken, Jr.
and Tony Gwynn into its'
membership.
As somewhat a breath of
fresh air for the sporting
public, after days on end
with nothing but seemingly
sordid news out of the NBA,
NFL and Major League
Baseball, two men will be
recognized for the outstand-
ing careers they had with lit-
tle to no controversy.
If there was ever anything
questioned about them dur-
ing their careers, it was -
Gwynn's battle of the bulge,
and Ripken's consecutive
game streak potentially hurt-
ing his own statistics as well
as the good of the team.
Think about that, the only
bad thing people could say
about Ripken during his
career was the he wanted to
play too much.
Gwynn's weight problem
kind of pointed to the same
mentality, even if it seems to
contradict it.
He was notorious for
spending hours upon hours
watching video of his swings
in games.
To further hone his ability,
to correct any flaws or
mechanics that might be tak-
ing place but spending a
lot of sedentary time.
So one was chubby from
working on his swing, the
other maybe saw his average
drop at times because he did-
n't want to take a day off.
If that's the worst you can
say about them as players,
thenI'd have them on my
team any day.
As players, each also spent
his entire career with one
team, quite an oddity in the
leagues these days, which
also speaks to the character
of these two men.
I'm sure there were times
when contracts were up that
they could have held out for
the highest bidder and just
gone after the money and
moved on to another team.
But no, they stuck with the
organizations that drafted
them, through thick and thin,
Ripken in Baltimore and
Gwynn in San Diego.
Two men, each spending
their careers on opposite
coasts, seemingly different in
so many ways.
Except that they both
loved the game, respected
the game and played it and
carried themselves the right
way.
And so amid the modem-
day chaos that is professional
sports, we are reminded by
these two great profession-
als, these two great men,
how it should be.

Remembering Cal and restoring your faith


"He is being selfish," some
said.
"He should take a day off
for the good of the team and
end the streak," a sports
writer declared.
Those were some of the
comments in the Baltimore
media in the early 1990s
about Oriole shortstop Cal
Ripken.
He was struggling through
a hitting slump. He was
about 1,200 games into his
streak for consecutive games
played.
I was living in Maryland at
the time and was surprised at
the criticism directed toward
Cal.
He had been the Rookie of
the Year in 1982 and the
American League Most
Valuable Player in 1983.
Yet seven years later, he
was struggling on an Oriole
team that was underachieving
in a proud, baseball town.
The Orioles had a string of
great teams in the 1960s and
1970s with Brooks Robinson,
Frank Robinson, Jim Palmer,
Boog Powell, Paul Blair and
others.
In 1983, Ripken's second
full season, the Orioles won
the World Series with the
help of their star shortstop
and future Hall of Famer
Eddie Murray.
Fans have short memories
and sports commentators
thrive on controversy.
Questioning Ripken's
motives today seems a lot
like leaving.the porch light
on for Lindsay Lohan.
Fortunately, Cal's story has
a much better ending.
The afterword to a great
playing career comes today
when Ripken will be induct-
ed into the baseball Hall of


From the
Front Row
John Bedell
Fame in Cooperstown, New
York.
That small, New York
town will be filled with peo-
ple wearing Orioles jersey
with the number 8 on the
back.
Many of those fans will
think back to a very special
September night in 1995.
Ripken broke Lou Gehrig's
2130 game consecutive
streak in September of 1995.
At the urging of his team-
mates, he took a victory lap
around Camden Yards and
shook hands with fans,
grounds crew members,
umpires and the players on
the visiting Angels' team.
It was a great moment for
all baseball fans, especially
after the disappointing strike
of 1994.
It says a lot about Ripken,
the person, that he was still
in an Orioles uniform.
He had grown up in
Maryland and his father was
a long-time coach in the
Baltimore organization.
In 1987, after thirty years
with the Orioles, Cal Ripken,
Sr. became the manager of
the Orioles.
Much was made of the
fact, that dad had two sons
on the team. Cal was at


shortstop and younger broth-
er Billy played second.
The team finished a disap-
pointing 67-95 that year.
In 1988, the Orioles began
the season 0-6 and owner
Edward Bennett Williams
fired Ripken.
It was one of the earliest
dismissals of a manager in
baseball history and it did not
fix anything.
The team went on to lose
15 straight for an 0-21 start,
the worst ever in major
league history.
Despite that firing, Cal
Ripken moved on.
He did not demand a trade
and he did not trash the
organization in the media.
A year later later, his dad
returned to his previous job
as a coach on manager Frank


Robinson's staff.
When the time came for
Ripken to be a free agent, he
decided his family and
friends were in Baltimore and
that is where he would stay.
He almost certainly could
have made more money else-
where, but that was not his
goal.
He played with the Orioles
until his retirement in 2001.
If only every team could
have a "selfish" player like
Cal Ripken, what a different
sports world it would be.
So look beyond the stories
of all the bad behavior in the
sports world and take a
minute to watch Cal accept
his spot with the best of
baseball.
It just might restore your
faith in sports.
