The results \ere not pretty.
The %\innine bid and shock-

Sebring Cit\ Administrator
Bob Hoffman summed up the
feelings of many in the court-

Although the results of the
auction were less than ideal, the

In order to strike that deal. the

Couple's 6,000-mile ride


ends in magazine story


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
Skevin.shutt@newssun.comn
SEBRING During the final 71
miles of their 6,214-mile bike ride
around the country, Carol and Gary
Speary got the paparazzi treatment as
they rode into Sebring.
In the months leading to
their April 21 departure from 'It
their Tanglewood home in
Sebring, the tandem-riding like
retired school teachers made
the classic mistake of leaking a

group of cyclists whose ranks
included a News-Sun reporter. ag(
The paper's story resulted in
television coverage when they le
passed through Tallahassee.
Then, regional magazine CA
Southern Living iang their cell SPE
phone.
Southern Living photographer Gary
Clark and Stacey Cook, freelance pro-
ducer, joined the Spearys at 6:30 a.m.
Wednesday in Kissimmee for last day
of the couple's titanic tandem trek.
Cook chauffeured a white convert-


ible Ford Mustang, while Clark clam-
bered around in the back seat taking
pictures of his subjects for the day.
"It feels like just a few days ago we
left," Carol Speary said standifig out-
side their Tanglewood home. ,

"The main reason we did that was to

Speary said with Carol Speary finish-

point of our trip."
They both agreed the unexpected
media coverage (they didn't seek it,
but accepted it when asked for inter-
views) was a humbling but great expe-
rience.

TDC wants to


add cent to


tourist tax

Department of

Revenue reports 15

businesses pay tax

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING The Tourist
Development Council moved for-
ward Thursday with an effort to
increase the county's tourist devel-
opment tax.
The council's desire to raise the
tax (sometimes called a tourist tax
or hotel-motel tax), however, wasn't
enough for a couple of organiza-
tions seeking funding.
The council denied Florida
Freshwater Frontier's request for
$10,000, citing decreasing revenue
projections and, in part, because
executive director Lynn Topel was-
n't on hand to defend her request.
The Heartland Riders Association
received less than half of the
$23,200 it requested for the Run to
the Heartland motorcycle rally that
this year includes the American
Motorcyclist Association's south-
east regional conference.
"We wish it were more," council
member Sandy Greenslade said of
the $10,000 grant that excluded
entertainment and advertising
expenses.
Representatives of Heartland
Riders said last year's Run drew up
to 38,000, according to police esti-
mates. With the AMA's presence,
they're expecting 50,000 people or
more.
The event spans three days in
October and will include a reception
with a band, clinics, seminars and
self-guided rides through Highlands
scenic byways and attractions.
"I think the event is outstanding,"
Jim Brantley, TDC executive direc-
tor, said. "It could be the second
largest event in Highlands County."
Race Week in March is the largest
tourist draw.
SDespite the council's apparent
support of Run to the Heartland, its
sponsorship budget for fiscal year
2007-2008 is $40,000 and advertis-
ing grants are frozen.
Based on declining revenue from
the 2 percent hotel-motel tax (which

Junior Idol to be held at same
time as adult competition
By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@ newssun.com
SEBRING The 2007 editions of
Heartland Idol and Junior Idol,
Highlands County's local singing com-
petitions, will begin Aug. 20.
In a change from previous years, the
Junior Idol competition will be held in
conjunction with the four qualifying
rounds of the adult competition. The
quarterfinals of Junior Idol will be Aug.
20 and Sept. 6, the semifinals will take
place Sept. 20, and the finals will happen
on Sept. 27. The junior competition will
begin at 6 p.m., and the adult qualifying
rounds will immediately follow the kids'
shows.
As for the adults, after the four quali-
fying rounds will come three semifinal
nights. The semifinals will consist of
three themed shows as it did last year:
the Oct. 11 competition will be 1980's
night, Oct. 18 will feature songs from
Elton John and Madonna, and Nov. 1 will
be Elvis night.
The 2007 Heartland Idol will be
crowned Nov. 10, with the show taking
place at the conclusion of the 12 Hours
of Art and Community Festival. Each
show will take place at the Circle in
downtown Sebring.
The winner of the adult competition

contestants that finish first through third

ments will be necessary before the entire
prize money amount is awarded. The

performances, the runner-up will have

Charity collecting shoes for kids


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Hope. It can
come in many shapes and
sizes. It can come in a sunrise,
or in a quiet moment. The roar
of an engine, or the face of a
child. Or even shoes ... some-
times socks.
Hope is what Heidi
Phillips, a graduate of Warner
Southern College and resident
of Sebring, is trying to supply
by coordinating the Shoes for
Orphan Souls drive here in
Highlands County.
Phillips returned from a
month-long -mission trip to
Romania last June, where the
22-year-old saw first-hand the
need of children overseas.
"If you could just see the
kids' faces," Phillips said.
"It is both heartbreaking
and humbling to take a child
on a walk and end up having
to give them a piggyback ride
back to the orphanage
because their only pair of
shoes fell apart," Phillips
added.
Starting this week, large
cardboard boxes were placed
at Brewsters, Bethany Baptist


Church and Goin' Postal for
donations.
To date, she has collected
almost 40 pairs of shoes, but
Phillips is seeking other busi-
nesses and non-profits where
she can place more boxes.
Shoes for Orphan Souls is a
program run by Buckner
International, a Baptist-based,
non-profit organization that
relies on the generosity of
individual and corporate
donors.
The shoes, socks and
shoelaces are distributed by
Buckner both overseas and
here in the United States.
Since 1999, the organization
has delivered over 1 million
pairs of shoes to orphans.
Due to customs regulations
and a desire for orphan chil-
dren to receive a new pair of
shoes, Buckner only accepts
new shoes, socks and
shoelaces.
Buckner also asks for $5
with your shoe donation to
help with shipping.
Although all types of shoes
and sizes are needed, the most
urgent need is for older shoe
sizes youth 1 to an adult


11, especially for boys ages 7
through 18.
"We encourage those who
are giving the shoes to place a
family picture and a note to
the child inside each pair of
shoes they donated," Phillips
added.
Shoes can be dropped off at
the "Live Drive" Phillips is
having from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Aug. 11 in front of Wal-Mart
in Sebring.
Contact Phillips at 273-
1920.


ments as locals, should they finish in the
top three.
Opening the contest up to out-of-coun-
ty residents will allow South Florida
Community College students and resi-
dents of surrounding counties who
weren't able to participate previously an
opportunity, President/CEO of the
Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce
President Dan Andrews said.

year's Heartland Idol and Junior Idol
contest, entry forms or questions, contact
the Chamber of Commerce at 385-8448

the store.
After stealing an undis-
closed amount of money, the
suspect fled on foot around
the side of the store.
As of Thursday, there were
very little leads, and at this
point the HCSO believes the
suspect may have been acting
alone.
To report any information
on the crime, call Crime
Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS
or Detective Jamie Davidson
of the HCSO at 402-7250.

mph around residential neighborhoods after
allegedly having sex with a 12-year-old girl.
After the July 31 arrest, Avon Park Police
'y,., Chief Frank Mercurio contacted the Army and
S discovered the suspect, 20-year-old Justin
Roberts of Avon Park, was scheduled to return
: to duty on July 23.
"He was in essence eight days late from his
arrival," Mercurio said. "But he was not offi-
cially listed as AWOL."
The victim's mother reportedly found
Roberts hiding underneath her daughter's bed
around 2 a.m. Tuesday morning naked from
the waist down. After her discovery, Roberts
jumped out of the young girl's bedroom win-
dow and drove away wearing only a shirt, the
arrest report stated.
The mother called the APPD and reported a
burglar in her house.
Officers responded to the call and saw a 2002
Chevrolet Impala driving erratically in the area,
the report said.
Suspecting there might be a correlation
between the Impala's mercurial driving and the
reported burglary, officers attempted to pull the
car over.
Roberts, who reportedly said
he was afraid of being caught,
eluded capture by leading
I' police on a brief high-speed
pursuit down Avon Park's resi-
dential streets, the report said.
Roberts Mercurio explained Thursday
Roberts
afternoon that his officers acted
most prudently ... exercising extreme caution"
while chasing the suspect.
"I believe this pursuit lasted a matter of sec-
onds," he said. "So it wasn't something that
went on for hours like we see on TV."
Witnesses accounts identified Roberts as the
suspect and officers were sent to his residence
to speak with him, but he wasn't there.
Later that morning, Roberts was escorted to
the police station by his mother, curious after
officers inquired about her son, the report said.
In an interview conducted by APPD
Detective Jake Bratten, Roberts allegedly
admitted to having sex with the young girl on
two separate occasions.
Bratten asked Roberts if he knew the age of
the' young girl, to which Roberts replied he
thought she was 16. In the interview, he report-
edly said he met the girl'when he was 17 and
she was in sixth grade.
In a separate interview with the alleged vic-
tim, she admitted the pair had sex that night,
adding that the two also had sex on three sepa-
rate occasions. She told officials the pair had
sex earlier in July when Roberts was on leave
from the Army as well as once before her 12th
birthday, the report said.
The alleged victim claimed Roberts did
know her age, telling Bratten that when she
first met Roberts she told him she was 11. She
said she recalled asking him if he cared about
her age, to which Roberts allegedly replied he
didn't, the report said.
Roberts remained in jail Thursday without
bond for charges of attempting to elude a police
officer, sexual battery on a victim under 12
years of age, and three counts of lewd and las-
civious battery on a victim 12 years of age or
older.

"That's what we'd really like to see come
out of this," Gary Speary told Clark, the pho-
tographer who seemingly took pictures from
every conceivable angle. "We're just common,
ordinary folk."
The Spearys arrived in Babson Park on
State Road 17 in Polk County about 10 a.m.,
where cycling friend Ken New met the
Spearys to accompany them through the final


stretch. New was among a group pedalers who
escorted the couple out of Highlands County
in April.
At 12:13 p.m., they were home, enjoying a
celebration kiss ... but what they really craved
was an Italian dinner.
Pasta, of course.
When will they do it again?
"Now is not the time to talk about the next
trip," Gary Speary adamantly said, while
Carol Speary just as adamantly shook her
head.

SEBRING Retired Navy
Commander James LaVangie of Sebring
will be the guest briefer at this
Saturday's meeting of the South Central
Florida Military Officers Association of
America (MOAA).
Commander LaVangie will present a
briefing at 9:30 a.m. when the MOAA

Steve Israel, Bob Winston and
Atul Patel if they wanted
to make a bid at that price. All
three declined.
Isicoff then asked Hoffman
if he would open with a $3
million bid, which he did, and
the judge gave each bidder
another chance to increase
Hoffman's bid. For the second
time, all three bidders
declined. With the bidding
stalled, Judge Isicoff was
forced to close the auction
with the city as the highest,
and only, bidder.
After the auction closed,
attorney Peter Russin, repre-
senting former Harder Hall
owner Mark Shenker (who
attended the auction), ques-
tioned the results. While
emphasizing that he wasn't
making accusations, Russin
inquired as to whether illegal
contacts between the city and
the three bidders took place
*prior to the hearing.
"Why were three interested

on how oxygen can help defeat infection

Florida Hospital Heartland Division
recently announced that it would soon be
installing a single-patient hyperbaric
oxygen chamber in its new Wound Care
Center here in Highlands County.
Commander LaVangie was commis-
sioned from the United State Naval
Academy and spent most of his career in


parties not bidding at a rela-
tively low price?" Russin
asked, adding that he wanted
to "make sure no communica-
tions were held" between the
city and the three bidders.
"I'm not accusing, but it's
interesting that three interest-
ed purchasers made no bid at
all."
Attorney Marsha Rydberg,
who represented the city dur-
ing the bankruptcy, responded
by saying no agreements were
made between the city and
anyone prior to the auction.
"There were no deals cut with
anybody," she said. Isicoff
ruled that the city acted
appropriately, and Russin said
he was satisfied with
Rydberg's answers.
Russin was not the only one
who had questions about the
auction after its sudden end.
Patrick Jovanov of Bristol
August Inc., a creditor in the
bankruptcy out of Pompano
Beach, questioned the integri-
ty of the auction process.
"You have single-family
homes in Highlands County


selling for $3 million,"
Jovanov said.
Isicoff defended the auction
itself, but did acknowledge
the surprising lack of bidding
during the auction.
"I don't think there's one
person here that isn't disap-
pointed," Isicoff said, but
added that there was "no
question" that the auction was
done in a fair manner.

LaVangie.
Following the briefing, the MOAA
officers will conduct the monthly board
meeting with an agenda that covers
financial reports as well as an initial
report from the nominating committee
for 2008 officers.


Isicoff concluded that the city
did not have improper contact
with any of the three pre-
qualified bidders, and ruled
that the city acted as a buyer
in good faith. Isicoff then
closed the hearing almost
apologetically.
"It is what it is," Isicoff
said of the surprising auction
results as she closed the hear-
ing. "I wish the city the best
of luck."

Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK One of the

the picnic is open to the com-

budget to the county commis-

The council carried for-
ward six-figure balances from
2004 through this fiscal year
- $155,000, $258,000 and
$203,000, respectively.
In October, Brantley
expects to carry forward
about $50,000.
The two-cent "tourist tax"
averages $130,000-$150,000
annually. He said adding a
third cent would continue to
draw the same amount of rev-
enue.
Voters approved the origi-
nal two-cent tax, but now
county commissioners need
only a super majority to
increase it.
Brantley said the third cent
would be applied to market-
ing and advertising to lure
inquiring phone calls and
Web site visits, both of which
he said were lacking.

Highlands once had bridge problem on smaller scale


C.R. 634 bridge in Highlands Hammock was
in danger of 'collapse without warning'


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING While state
and federal officials look into
the causes of the collapse of
the Interstate 35 W bridge in
Minneapolis few people in
Highlands.-County remember
that there might have been a
similar albeit much smaller
- problem here, had it not
been for an inspection by the
Florida Department of
Transportation.
In Minnesota, the huge'
bridge collapsed Wednesday,
claiming several lives and.
dozens of injuries. HoWever,
because of the warning and a
repair job by the Highlands
County Road and Bridge
Department the problem here
was solved with little more
than a few months' inconven-
ience.
Because there is little
topography here, there are
only a few bridges, such as a
span over the Arbuckle Creek,
another between Lake
Jackson and Little Lake
Jackson and even a railroad
bridge over U.S. 27 just north
of Lake Placid.
But it was a one-lane wood-
en bridge on County Road
634 in the middle of
Highlands Hammock State
Park that caused controversy
in 1989. In June of that year,
complaints surfaced follow-
ing a FDOT investigation that


the bridge was unsafe for traf-
fic.
Then Director of Public
Works for Highlands County
Carl Cool told the county
commission large nails had
worked their way out of the
timbers and even the timbers
themselves were rotting.
Highlands County
Commission Chairman Archie
Summers said he had been
advised that such structures
"could collapse without warn-
ing."
It was not difficult to
believe the bridge already
was a half century old.
But when county commis-
sioners moved to close it, they
were greeted by angry resi-
dents not from Highlands
County but from neighboring
Hardee County.
They contended the road
was a lifeline for them, cut-
ting an 18-mile trip to
Highlands down to 10 miles.
They pointed out although
they lived in Hardee County,
many of them worked in
Highlands. Moreover, it was a
quick route, for ambulances
and those needing' other kinds
of medical help.
Commissioners decided to
have a thorough investigation
of the bridge and look at get-
ting funding from the Florida
Department of Natural
Resources.
Preliminary estimates


showed the project would cost
in excess of $57,000 to com-
plete.
Rick Lilyquist, at the time
the Highlands County
Engineer, said he was able to
elicit a promise of partial
funding from the DNR.
But a month later, officials
from the DNR reneged on
their funding promise, with
their consultants advising


against the idea of using state
trust fund money to make the
repairs unless the bridge was
determined to be "critical for
maintaining the park."
It wasn't.
The situation led to a con-
tentious August county com-
mission meeting. Two
motions to close the bridge
failed by a 3-2 margin, with
commissioners finally decid-


ing to create a study commit-
tee of commissioner Jimmy
Gose, Lilyquist and a Hardee
County representative. They
would look at the issue and
bring back a solution.
In September 1989, county
commissioners voted to repair
the park bridge, using the
recently-passed penny-on-
the-dollar infrastructure tax to
fund the project.


In the end, it took a
Highlands County Road and
Bridge Department crew 30
working days to affect the
repairs.
The project came in under
budget, with $23,112 spent on
materials and another $30,000
on equipment and personnel.
To this date, there have
been no further problems
reported with the bridge.

Stop running red lights
Editor:
Last Thanksgiving Day, (in
Austin, Texas), my son and
granddaughter were tragical-
ly killed by a negligent driv-
er. It couldn't be determined
whether he ran one light or
two. At this time the case
remains open. In the end, a
man broke a law and instant-
ly killed two people.
Aug. 5-11 is National Stop
on Red Week. Florida's Stop
Red Light Running Week is
Aug. 4-11. Held in conjunc-
tion with the National Stop
on Red campaign, this initia-
tive encourages high visibili-
ty enforcement coupled with
public education to, improve
intersection safety.
Florida leads the nation in
intersection fatalities, total-
ing over 50 percent higher
than most states. A major
contributing factor in these
crashes involves running a
stop sign or red light. Red
light running causes nearly
100 traffic fatalities and
6,300 serious injuries each
year in Florida. And disre-
garding traffic signals is one
of the six factors that define
aggressive driving.
Most people who run red
lights do so because they are
in a hurry. Those same peo-
ple would probably agree
that the time'saved by avoid-
ing a red light is not worth a
human life. Yet they do it
anyway with an attitude that
"It will never happen to me."
But it does happen. Think
about it. The seconds we try
to save may be the last sec-
onds of someone's life.

Something is wrong
with our system
Editor:
Information I received
from The Intercollegiate
Studies Institute:
Accordingly, we do have
some very interesting profes-
sors in some of our most
prestigious colleges.
One remarked that those
killed in the Sept. 11,2001
incident were not innocent
victims; some also tried to
stop students from setting up
memorials for these victims.
One wished for a million
Mogodeshuos to visit our
Soldiers and Marines in Iraq.


Some will not allow ROTC
training and attempt to block
military recruiting.
Yale actively recruited and
enrolled the Ex-Deputy
Foreign Secretary/
Ambassador for the Taliban
for the freshman class.
From Faith Action: A
United States Navy
Commander ordered a Navy
Chaplain to stop praying in
Jesus name for fear of being
offensive; at the same time,
the military is bending over
backward to accommodate
the Muslims. When the chap-
lain refused, he was court
martialed by the Navy.
I saw a recent incident on
Sthemnews where a man was
arrested for desecrating our
flag and was released on the
grounds of it being unconsti-
tutional. My friends, if these
things are considered legal,
there is something wrong
with our system.
I know. our president has
gotten very low ratings in the
polls, but we have to admit
that he doesn't change his
beliefs with every passing
trend. And by the way, as I
understand it, the same polls
stated that our Democratic
Congress got an even lower
rating.
This task is much too big
for the human mind. We have
strayed from what our coun-
try was built upon and it is
surely time we got on bended
knee and claimed the promise
given in II Chronicles 7:14.
How we need to see God's
divine guidance on what He
would have us to do in addi-
tion to being obedient to His
Word to restore our beautiful
country to what he intended
it to be.
He tells us, if we will
humble ourselves, seek His
face, pray and repent, He will
hear from heaven and heal
our land. His promises are
true. This is a beginning.
Let us be obedient to His
still small voice as He speaks
to us, be consistent in spend-
ing time with Him each day,
praying for these enemies
who are intent on destroying
us, praying for a cleansing of
our government, for right-
eous leadership and that He
will prepare Godly candi-
dates and guide us with wis-
dom to know who to vote for.
The task is much too big
for us, but there is no task
too big for Him. May He


burden our hearts to the point
of action. May God bless our
beloved country and help us
to clean up the mess we've
made. In his precious name,
Willie Clyde (Toole) Cloud

Cuban immigration
Editor:
As I drove from Lake
Placid to Sebring recently I
was surprised to see a large
group of people standing on
the roadside waving flags
and signs bearing the legends
"No Amnesty" and "20 mil-
lion go home" as well as
even less cordial comments.
Just who these people were
was not readily apparent, but
their enthusiasm.or bel-
ligerency was.
Having traveled some and
witnessing signs like
"Yankee go home" I was not
unaware of the latency of
such sentiment but I was sur-
prised to see it surface in my
community with such vigor.
I think in large part the
cause of this demonstration is
the confusion and dissem-
bling on the part of our
politicians combined with an
unwillingness on the part of
some people to face the reali-
ty that some problems are not
solved by quick fixes, or
demonstrations. By combin-
ing a host of problems into
one proposed piece of legis-
lation called an omnibus bill
or something of the sort the
real issues and sensible solu-
tions are obfuscated,
Firstly, it would be useful
to follow the lead of the
medical profession and resort
to a practice called "triage,"
dividing the issues according
to their seriousness and sepa-
rating them out for singular
examination. We have the
questions of 1) border securi-
ty, ie. controlling who and
how many enter the country,
2) an orderly program for
admitting "guest" or tempo-
rary workers should a need
be identified as well as a
determination of what types
of workers are needed and
determine the conditions and
duration of their stay, and 3)
what action should be taken
with respect to a large num-
ber of persons of foreign ori-
gin who are already present
in our country and what steps
should be taken with respect

tinued presence.
These are essentially three different
problems that do not lend themselves to
a sweeping overreaching solution, and
should be analyzed separately on a logi-
cal and not an emotionally toned basis.
Doctrinaire slogans such as "No
Amnesty" bring only heat without light
to the dialogue. Suggestions based on
silly metaphor like go the the end of the
line have small relevance and are remi-
niscent of school yard game sayings like
"Mother May I ?"
The pending proposed legislation is
replete with bells, smoke and whistle's
designed to mollify the irrational ele-
ments of protest rather than to attack the
essences of the problem with rational
examination and sensible proposals.
By contrast, our nation's shifting and
often inconsistent policies toward Cuba
and Cuban emigres demonstrates some
of the follies and pitfalls irrational and
emotion toned thinking can lead to. The
earliest Cuban refugees to arrive in the
United States were those who were
closely linked to Batista and his obvi-
ously corrupt and repressive regime. In
fact'thie thited States had for years
opposed Batista b3' secretl) funneling
assistance to Castro while his revolution
was developing by making cargo drops
to his forces in the Sierra Maestra
Mountains in eastern Cuba. As the com-
plexion of Castro's revolution reddened,
upper and middle class Cubans, fearful
of loosing their economic positions of
advantage fled to the United States and
were welcomed with open arms; partic-
ularly after embarrassing collapse of the
Bay of Pigs fiasco.
In his Mariel Boat lift Castro demQn-
strated that disaffected Cubans were
free to leave yet we still treat them as
"political refugees" entitled to special
benefits, even after adopting a wet foot
/dry foot policy, which welcomes
Cubans who make it ashore with special
entry rights while deporting those inter-
cepted on the high seas. It would seem
the only acceptable amnesty is for a
"dry foot" Cuban.
A further schizophrenic aspect of our
Cuban policy is to persist in imposing
harsh embargoes against Cuba which
have only exacerbated the miserable liv-
ing conditions of the average Cuban,
while no evidence of their avowed pur-
pose to, bring down Castro has ever
been detected.


It is at least ironic that after reestab-
lishing diplomatic and economic rela-
tions with two nations with which we
were at war and cost the lives of tens of
thousands of American troops we still
hammer Cuba with a stranglehold of
economic sanctions, which over 50
years have not shown the desired effect;
despite the fact that we have never been
at war with Cuba.
Now the engine for that policy is the
political clout of the Cuban-American
community. Washington should be
reminded that "Calle Ocho" is not Main
Street, USA.
Meanwhile, our government, ever
playing to the pit, as Shakespeare would
say, is about to legislate a so-called
comprehensive bill that will require
some long-term residents, among other
things, to return to the land of their
birth and reapply (or be counted )
before resuming their lives in America.
This will supposedly prevent their
metaphorically "cutting in line," there-
by satisfying the. American desire to cue
up in the name of fair play.

Purple Heart history
Editor: .
The Purple Heart is displayed in
Washington, D.C. at the Society of the
Cincinnati's Anderson House Museum
and another at Washington's
Headquarters State Historic Site in
Newburgh, N.Y. The Purple Heart itself
is what signified a Hero of the
Revolutionary War.
The Purple Heart was awarded to
three soldiers Sgts. Elijah Churchill,
William Brown and Daniel Bissell Jr.
On May 3, 1783, Churchill and Brown
received the Purple Heart, then called
the Badge of Military Merit, from Gen.
George Washington, its designer and
creator. Bissell received his on June 10,
1783. These three are the only known
recipients of the award during the
Revolutionary War.
On Aug. 7, 1782, at his Newburgh,
N.Y. headquarters, Washington devised
two badges of distinction to be worn.
The first was a chevron to be worn on
the left sleeve of the coat. It signified
loyal military service. Three years of
service with "bravery, fidelity and good
conduct" were the criteria for earning
this badge: two chevrons meant six
years of service.
After the Revolutionary War, no more
American soldiers received the Badge of
Military Merit. It was not until Oct. 10,

1927, that Army Chief of Staff, General
Charles P. Summerall, directed a draft
bill to be sent to Congress "to revive the
Badge of Military Merit."
A number of private efforts were
made to have the medal reinstituted,
after the Army withdrew the bill in
1928, but the Office of the Adjutant
General filed all the correspondence for
possible future use. On Jan. 7, 1931,
that Summerall's successor General
Douglas MacArthur, confidentially
reopened the case. General MacArthur
wanted the new medal issued on the
bicentennial of George Washington's
birth. After the award was reinstated,
recipients of a Meritorious Service
Citation certificate during World War I
along with other eligible soldiers, could
exchange their award for the Purple
Heart. The Navy Department did not
authorize the issue of the Purple Heart,
but Franklin D. Roosevelt amended that.
By Executive Order on Dec. 3, 1942,
the award was extended to the Navy,
Marine Corps and the Coast Guard
beginning Dec. 6, 1941.
President Ronald Reagan, on Feb. 23,
1984, amended President Kennedy's
order, to include those wounded or
killed as a result of "an international
terrorist attack." Purple Heart Medals
wereawarded to military members or '
next' of kin who were wounded or killed
in the terrorist acts of Sept. 11, 2001.
Shortly after the award was reinstat-
ed, a group of combat wounded veterans
in Ansonia, Conn., formed the first
chapter of the civilian organization
whose membership was composed of
recipients of the decoration. The living
organization grew rapidly during and
after World War II and now a nation-
wide body. It became known as the
"Military Order of the Purple Heart of
the United States of America Inc." The
organization was chartered by Congress
by H.R. 13558 which became public law
85-761, on Aug. 26, 1958.
When Alvin Creech receives his
Purple Heart on Aug. 5, at the Avon
Park Veterans of Foreign Wars Post
9853, he will belong to a very special
group that is 224 years old and be one
of the thousands of other heroes.
Congratulations, Alvin Creech, from
the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Combat
Veterans Memorial Post 9853 and the
Ladies Auxiliary on your very special
day 57 years late.

Reality bites, especially on TV


I am so over reality TV!
The first five reality TV
shows were sort of entertain-
ing but after the last 50 I am
drained. The reality TV show
has been done and redone too
many times.
I no longer care how
young adults function in the
real world. I do not care who
America's next top anything
is and I am absolutely sure
that I have never cared who
became Donald Trump's
assistant.
Television is not what it
used to be. The writers and
producers are choosing to
take the easy way out by not
writing at all and producing
as least as possible. Give me
a good script, an excellent
cast, a teaspoon of drama, a
cup of comedy, and three and
half cups of common sense
and I will be satisfied.
I am just really sick of the
whole reality concept and
even more disgusted with the
people whose number one
goal in life is too make a
complete fool of themselves.
I do not understand why peo-
ple choose to go on national
television and jump into bed
with someone they jhst met
only a few hours or a few
minutes before and come to
the conclusion that it must be
love. That's not love; it is
downright depressing
because the reality is people
actually practice such repul-
sive acts on a daily basis.
The saddest thing about
these particular shows that
exploit such acts is that chil-
dren are watching. This is
clearly not a positive mes-
sage that is being sent out to
the youth of America.
Between the talk shows
that specialize in finding the


On My Mind
Georgia Dawkins


fathers innocent children
with teenage mothers and
these reality TV shows doing
everything but support
morals, by the time I have
children Americans will have
adopted "idiocracy" into
their everyday lives.
One category of realty TV
that seems to never grow old
is music. This is category is
actually the most entertaining
of them all but if I see one
more aspiring pop star whose
voice sounds like the slaying
of cats, I am going to
scream!
A lot of my friends watch
reality TV just to relieve
their minds. They believe
that watching other people
destroy their lives and act
like fools is a good mental
break from school and the
reality of their own lives.
I could never see myself
volunteering to put my per-
sonal life on display for all
of America. If I ever even
waste time thinking about
doing such a thing, I want
someone, anyone, to slap me
with all of their might. Just
because the shows are so
popular, that does not mean
that they are good.

Et tu, Brutus

In what seems to be
another lifetime, I once
worked as a technician in
an animal clinic. My first
week was a test to see if I
could survive the unique-
ness of working with ani-
mals. I always thought of
myself as a dog person,
but I found out there are
many more animals out
there than just dogs. For
the most part, it was an
enjoyable experience.
The veterinarians I
worked for were the well-
ness clinic for the local
mall's pet store and we
cared for the many baby
animals that were placed
there to sell. At one point
on my first day, one of
the vets told me to bring a
Samoyed pup to the
examination room.
Unfortunately, the pup
had an advanced case of
kennel cough and had to
be put down (http:l/www.
thepetcenter.com/gen/
S kenc.html).
At that time, Samoyeds
were my favorite dog
breed. I brought the pup
to the table in the exam
room and proceeded to
walk out of the room. The
vet told me I had to
decide if I wanted to work
at the animal clinic or
not. If I did, I had to do
the sad as well as the
happy jobs. I stayed. At
least the puppy had lov-
ing arms to hold him.
My next major
encounter was with
Brutus, the Great Dane
who was being kenneled
there while his leg healed.
It seems Brutus and a 6-
foot fence had met and
Brutus' back.paw hadn't
cleared the top of the
fence as well as he had
planned. The docs had
cleansed and bandaged
the wound and it was
healing well.
Unfortunately, along
with the healing came
.itching. As soon as the
wound would start to itch,
Brutus would try to gnaw
the bandage off of his leg
so he could scratch the
itch. The bandage had to
be changed daily. (http://
www.akc.org/breeds/great
_dane/index.cfm)
The vet told me to
bring Brutus in from his
run, which I did. His fore-
Shead came to my shoul-
der. I had my hand under
his collar because I didn't
have a leash for him. As
we got to the door of the
exam room, Brutus decid-
ed he didn't want to enter
and turned tail towards
the kennel door. The vet
said, "Hang onto him,
Sunny", so I did. I had
one arm around the door-
jamb and the other hand
under his collar, standing
spread-eagled across the
door frame.
The vet stepped into
the hallway, slapped
Brutus on the hindquar-
ters and said, "Heel,
Brutus". The #@*% dog
followed him to the exam
room and behaved like
the gentleman I didn't
khow he was.
That day forward,
Brutus and I were best
buds. I found out it's the
little dogs that'll nail you
1" every time.

'Simpsons Movie' lives up to lofty expectations...almost


It would be hard for any-
thing to live up to the mas-
sive expectations that await-
ed the release of "The
Simpsons Movie." After all,
you have 18 years of wonder-
ful television to live up to,
plus the expectations of a
rabid and loyal fanbase who
have eagerly anticipated the
movie when it was first
rumored all the way back
in 1997.
And while "The Simpsons
Movie" is a good, solid film
with a clever plot and some
absolutely hilarious
moments, it doesn't quite
reach the level of'some of the
show's best TV episodes. But
really, living up to the show's
golden years (generally
defined as seasons three
through seven for those of
you who aren't "Simpsons"
nerds) is an almost impossi-
ble task, although the film
does more closely resemble
the early years of the show.
As for the plot, it evolves
in a typical "Simpsons" fash-
ion, where what seem at first
like simple happenings turn
into something much more
complicated as the movie
proceeds.
After the tragic death of
the band Green Day during a
concert in the polluted
cesspool that is Lake
Springfield, the citizens of
Springfield band together to
clean up the messy water.
Meanwhile, Homer
Simpson the bumbling,
oblivious, yet somehow
endearing patriarch of the
Simpsons family falls in
love with a pig (yes, a pig).
The pig, named Spider-Pig
(and later Harry Plopper
complete with a lightning-
shaped scar on the forehead),
produces a lot of, um, bodily
waste. And Homer, being

Homer, decides to put in all
in a silo, which he aptly titles
the "Pig Crap Silo."
When the silo overflows,
Homer decides to get rid of it
by dumping it in the newly-
pristine lake. This decision
proves to have disastrous
consequences, as it poisons
the pond so badly that the
Environmental Protection
Agency has to be called in.
President Arnold
Schwarzenegger decides to
quarantine Springfield under
a giant glass dome, and
Homer and the rest of his
family are driven out of town
by the angry mob of
Springfieldians. After learn-
ing that the government ulti-
mately plans to destroy
Springfield, the Simpsons


must act quickly to save their
beloved town.
While the main plotline is
interesting in and of itself,
the film also features some
intriguing subplots. Lisa
finds a new love, Marge has
doubts about her marriage to
Homer, and Bart finds a new
friend in Ned Flanders of all
people.
The movie also features its
share of clever jokes, but the
film is more reminiscent of
the early seasons of the
"Sinmpsons" before Homer
was made into a complete
and total idiot. The film fea-
tures a surprising amount of
heart, and it doesn't rely on
cheap gags as much as the
current TV version does.
"The Simpsons Movie" is
easily accessible for those
unfortunate souls who have
never seen the television
show,. There isn't a reliance
on inside jokes and gags, and
the story is easy to follow.
And unlike "Family Guy"
and other more mature car-
toons, "The Simpsons
Movie" is almost completely
free of crude and vulgar
jokes (with the notable
exception of Bart's much-dis-
cussed "exposure" that I feel
uncomfortable explaining in
a family newspaper).
But fear not, loyal
"Simpsons" fans, as the usual
cast of thousands is featured


prominently in the film. The
animation of that case of
thousands is marvelous ,
which is no surprise consid-
ering the animation of the
show has always been top-
notch. The detail on the big
screen is fantastic, and the
animators definitely had their
work cut out for them with
all the characters and events
-featured throughout the film.
"The Simpsons Movie"
will be successful no matter
what critics say. Fortunately,
this movie is worthy of any
critical praise it gets. It.isn't
the greatest, funniest, or most
clever "Simpsons" experi-
ence you'll ever have. But it
is a film that'll make you
laugh a lot.
So while I expected more
than I ultimately got, I didn't
walk away disappointed. As
long as you don't go into the
theater thinking the film will
be the best...movie...ever,
you'll thoroughly enjoy what
you see.

Florida fish kills

common during summer

but need reporting

There are a variety of reasons why dead fish might be
showing up.


News-Sun photos by DAN HOEHNE
While the baseball pennant races heat up in the middle of
summer, August is just beginning and so are the area youth
football leagues. The Sebring Youth Football youngsters have
begun practicing at the Max Long Recreational Complex,
where players are working on their running, kicking, block-
ing, passing and catching in preparation for the upcoming
season.

Special to the News-Sun
Reports of dead fish,
ranging from a few individ-
uals to hundreds of thou-
sands, have prompted
dozens of calls per week to
the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC)..this
summer.
Apprehensive callers to
the FWC's Fish Kill
Hotline worry something
must be terribly wrong;
others just want to know
the causes.
Fortunately, the mecha-
nism at the root of most
summertime fish kills in
brackish estuaries, fresh-
water lakes and man-made
retention ponds is well
understood by scientists.
Ironically, a lack of sun-
shine in the Sunshine State
is where problems begin.
The process starts with
overcast skies, hot summer
days and rainy weather.
Low water levels,
brought on by drought, add
to the mix. Most of the
oxygen fish breathe is cre-
ated when waterborne
microscopic plants use sun-
light to produce and add
dissolved oxygen to the
water, a process known as
photosynthesis.
But when overcast skies
persist for several days,
there is often not enough
sunlight to power the oxy-
gen-making process that
supports fish life.
Heavy rain and wind
from thunderstorms adds to
the problem by stirring up
bottom sediments that
muddy the water, further
reducing sunlight penetra-
tion in the water column.
Rainwater runoff also
washes large amounts of
decaying plant and animal
material into the water
body.
In the decay process,
bacteria use dissolved oxy-
gen in the water to break


down plant and animal mat-
ter, further dropping oxy-
gen levels.
"If these conditions per-
sist, and dissolved oxygen
levels drop for extended
periods, fish suffocate,"
said Jeff Willitzer, FWC
fisheries biologist.
In short, during extended
periods of overcast, rainy
or cloudy weather, the bio-
logical system uses dis-
solved oxygen faster than it
can produce it.
Heavy weather aggra-
vates the situation by creat-
ing and intensifying all the
conditions that lower dis-
solved oxygen levels in the
water.
The good news is that
most water bodies don't
suffer repeat performances
every year.
In fact, most water bod-
ies go years without suffer-
ing a major fish kill.
'If these
conditions
persist and
dissolved oxygen
levels drop for
extended
periods, fish
suffocate.'
JEFF WILLITZER
FWC biologist
"In spite of summer fish
kills, most Florida lakes are
in relatively healthy shape
and fish populations remain
stable.
Angling success general-
ly is not affected over the
long haul, even after events
that might appear serious to
the untrained eye," said
Willitzer, who is also an
avid angler.

HISTORY LESSON

5 YEARS AGO
August 3, 2002: Ryn Heine of Wauchula carded an even-par 72 to pace the field in the Sertoma
Junior GolfTour's season wrap up at the Sebring Municipal Golf Course. Hiland Sanders, however, wrapped
up top honors in the 17-18-year old boys age group for the season. Also taking taking the season over-
all bests in their respective age groups were Duncan Bralts (11-12 boys), Greg Gentry (9-10 boys), Colin
Walkup (6-8 boys), Audrey Brownell (116-18 girls), and Jocelyn Dunn (13-15 girls). Still up for grabs in
this season finale were the overall season bests in the boys 13-14-year olds, where Chuck Best and Mark
McGovem were neck-and-neck, the 11-12-year-old boys had a close race between Rocky Khara and
Aaron Snyder. The 15-16-year old boys would be decided between Marc Devaney and Cody Brownell.

Arc Stroke
An arc stroke is where the putter head naturally swings inside the target
line on the backstroke, returns to the target line on the forward stroke and
then arcs again to the inside on the follow-through. It is important to realize
that with an arc stroke, the putter face stays perpendicular to the path of the
clubhead. That means the putter face swings from open to square and then to
closed on the forward stroke. Because the putter face will only be square (per-
pendicular to the target line) once during the stroke, ball placement is criti-
cal. If the ball is too
far back or too far for-
ward in the stance,
the putt will not ----
track down the I I
intended line. -

FISH

Apprehensive callers to the

Damn Yankees


I heard breaking news on
"Mike and Mike in the
Morning," this morning
(Thursday) that the YES net-
work is up for sale.
That is the network that is
basically joined at the hip with
the New York Yankees, and is
the teams' nest egg from which
it can pull to afford a $200 mil-
lion payroll not to mention
the luxury taxes that the payroll
incurs under Major League
Baseball's collective bargaining
agreement.
The thinking is that with
YES sold, and the Yankees now
more under the control of
George Steinbrenner's
youngest son, Hal, the team
might be put up for sale in a few
years as well.
In the interim, the windfall of
an estimated $3.5 billion gotten
in the YES sale would surely
allow the team to continue its'
high spending ways.
But what happens when that
money runs out?
Or when young Steinbrenner
decides he'd rather pocket the
$3.5 billion, add the $1.5 bil-
lion the team would bring, and
retire to the Cayman Islands,
which he will then own?
Then the Yankees will be just
another club in Major League
Baseball.
Well, not just another club,
as they still will reside in the
nation's largest market and
likely will still be able to afford
payrolls the likes of which
Kansas City, Tampa Bay or
Minnesota can't.
But the difference would not
be as great between the have's
and have not's as it currently is.
Maybe it will be, however, as
the luxury tax won't be
incurred to the same levels by
the Evil Empire, thereby drop-
ping the amount going into the
kitty for the league-wide rev-
enue sharing.
In some markets, the money
received from that revenue
sharing might very well be all
that's keeping those clubs
afloat.


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne


The Yankees dropping pay-
roll will then cause the Red Sox
to not have to spend so much in
trying to keep up with them,
dropping the revenue sharing
amounts even further.
So now the richest club will
be spending less and more
responsibly, forcing the smaller
markets to spend less, because
they don't have the extra sup-
port of the luxury tax money -
or not as much of it.
A new system would have to
be figured out in order to keep
teams solvent.
But with the strength and
stubbornness of the players
union, and the likely cost cut-
ting that would be needed, it
might be years before a new
system will be agreed upon.
In the meantime, you might
see the Pittsburgh's, the
Minnesota's and Tampa Bay's
being sold, moved or folded.
And it will all be because the
system that was put in place to
financially help Major League
Baseball because of the
Yankees would now be hurt-
ing the league because of the
Yankees.
As much as I would love to
see Mark Cuban as the next
owner of the Cubs, I'm wonder-
ing if maybe it would be best
for him to buy the Yankees if
and when they do go up for
sale.
While Cuban could sure help
the Cubs, it might take the likes
of him to save the game.
