A Colorful Welcome

Ritter adds artistic


touch to his former


elementary school


By PATRICIA C. POND
News Sun correspondent
SEBRING If John
Ritter was depicted in one of
his own murals, he would be
holding a baseball bat over
one shoulder, a paint brush
in his other hand, and have a
press badge pinned to his
S shirt pocket.
This multi-talented, 22-
year-old college student is
just completing work on a
colorful mural that spans the
entrance to Sun' N Lake
Elementary School. He is
also a former high school
athlete who has written
sports articles for the News-


Sun since 2003.
Ritter's career goal is. to
become a professional sports
writer, hopefully for a maga-
zine, and to reach that goal
he is attending Florida State
University, where he majors
in English and business.
But his talent for art is
bringing him a lot of local
recognition, and some major
commissions doing'public
murals for two schools and a
stadium.
"I have always drawn and
doodled, but I never intend-
ed to do this," he said, refer-
ring to the mural painting. "I

Council to discuss


fire assessment


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING The city of
Sebring could soon join Avon
Park and Highlands County in
implementing a fire assess-
ment program. The city coun-
cil will discuss the idea at
Tuesday's meeting, which
could be the first step in the
process to implementing the
fee system.
The idea of a fire assess-
ment was proposed at the
council's May 15 meeting,
where the city authorized the
Government Services Group
(GSG) to present a proposal
for implementing phase one
of the program.
In phase one, GSG will
examine the ad valorem tax
rolls and fire call data, and
identify the cost of fire terv-
ice delivery. They will also
determine revenue require-
ments and submit an assess-
ment report using the infor-
mation. The report would
include an assessment rate
recommendation along with a
layout of how the fee will be
applied throughout the city.
Once GSG presents phase
one, the council would then
decide whether or not to actu-
ally implement the fire
assessment. If council
approves the program, it
would then set the exact fee
and authorize the method of
collection. Phase two would
then begin, in which GSG


would work to actually
implement the program based
on directions from the city
along with the findings from
phase one.
In a memo to the city coun-
cil, mayor and city clerk, City
Administrator Bob Hoffman
estimated the cost of imple-
menting phase one at
$54,000, including a $40,000
payment to GSG and $14,000
in attorney fees. If the city
proceeded to phase two, the
cost, would be $37,375:
$14,375 in fees to GSG and
$23,000 in attorney fees. The
money could be recoverable
through the fire assessment.
If Sebring used Avon
Park's $165 residential rate
for its 5,454 residential units,
the city would generate
$899,910, or around 45 per-
cent of the fire department's
$1,984,312. budget. (The
5,454 figure comes from the
city's solid waste assess-
ment.)
In comparison, Avon Park
generates a total of $694,155
in revenue from residences
and $82,449 in commercial
assessments, for a total of
$776,604 -which covers 56
percent of the city's fire
budget. If Avon Park decides
to include not-for-profit enti-
ties. the assessment would
cover 67 percent of the city's,
fire budget. (The inclusion of

New Orleans transplant likes small town charm


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING Although
she experienced big city life
in her five years living in
.New Orleans, teacher
Belinda Frazier is, and
always has been, a small
town girl.
The Arizona native wound
up in New Orleans, attending
college close to her mother's
side of the family, at a very
interesting time experi-
encing Hurricane Katrina
and the rebuild over the last
two years.
"I lost 30 to 40 percent of
my stuff, but that's minimal
compared to others," she
admitted.
The self-proclaimed small
town girl enjoyed one aspect
of the historic city and sees
the same charm in the people
*she has met in .Sebring -
their friendly attitude. She
attributes the New Orleans

residents charm to "southern-
hospitality."
She chose Sebring over
many. other candidates to
start teaching.
"So far I'm loving
Sebring," she said. "It seems
like a good fit for me and my
son."
Frazier moved here in the


last few weeks with her son
Josiah, who will attend the
Kindergarten Learning
Center with his mom, the
new physical education
teacher.
"New Orleans holds.a spe-
cial place in my heart but
I'm a small town girl want-
ing to go back to a small


town," she said. "I wanted
my son to grow up in a small
town too."
She was wowed by The
School Board of Highlands
County's recruiter Sean
Rego when he visited New
Orleans. She said they talked
for almost an hour and he
told her everything she want-
ed to hear, even before she
asked any questions.
She had two phone inter-
views, then was offered a job
on a Thursday, she recalls.
On Friday she accepted the
job, and on Saturday she was
in Sebring.
"I wanted to see if I liked
the community, rented a
house and by Tuesday I was
on my way back to New
Orleans," she said.
Frazier takes PE seriously.
She ran cross country in high
school and was on scholar-
ship for the sport in college.

SEBRING There have
been significant changes in
personnel at the News-Sun
recently, the result of natural
business and labor cycles
working their way through.
With the newcomers now
assimilated, and the
entire staff energized,
Publisher Clarissa
Williams has
announced several in-
house promotions,
some involving veter-
ans, others the fresh
faces. Jl
Her new manage-
ment. team, eager to
take the News-Sun to
the next level, is
already at work.
One of the most
important changes is
the restructuring of the
advertising depart- Roel
ment, promoting
Vickie Jones to advertising
manager and Alice Roepstorff
Sto classified advertising man-
ager.
Jones, formerly senior
advertising executive, has
been with the News-Sun for
seven years. She began as an
advertising assistant before
taking over a territory.
Originally from Illinois, she


has lived in Highlands
County for 20 years, having
followed her parents here.
"I was honored," Jones
said, "when I was asked to
take the position of advertis-
ing manager.
"I love and believe in the
News-Sun and what it stands
for. I love Highlands
County and the people
here, and look forward
to being a part of the
growth of our county
and our newspaper."
Roepstorff, who was
a licensed Realtor
ones before joining the
News-Sun four years
ago as an advertising
executive, is a Florida
native and the daugh-
ter of a retired Baptist
minister.
Her husband is-
Marty Roepstorff,
pstorff director of Sebring's


utilities department.
"I am excited to be a part of
the new News-Sun manage-
ment team," she said, "and I

look forward to assisting in
the development of new prod-
ucts."

Kindergarten parents need patience, awareness as center opens


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newissun.comi
With safety the main priori-
ty for the Kindergarten
Learning Center, Principal
Andrew Lethbridge wants to
make sure parents are aware
of the proper procedures for
pickup and drop-off.
While the building itself is
safe, parents need to take the
proper precautions to assure
safety outside the building as
well.
There are many ways 1o
enter the KLC, but from U.S.
27 is not suggested.
Lethbridge pointed out there
is no turn lane in front of the


center, and with traffic flow in
mind it is not suggested to
attempt to leave the center
crossing the highway and
heading south.
"It is possible to filter in
without using 27," he said.
Some entrances and exits
will be railed off with gates,
so the main flow of traffic
will enter via Commerce
Center lane.
The South Highlands
Avenue light at Highlands
Regional Medical Center is
one possible path. Take that
road to the light at Desoto
Road and turn left. Shortly
after the turn, watch for


Medical Way, and take anoth-
er left. Medical Way can also
be reached by taking Desoto
Road from U.S. 27 and hang-
ing a right. After the approach
on Medical Way, take a right
on Commerce Center Drive.
Approaching the KLC, take a
left on Commerce Center
Lane. This is the suggested
route.
Once on Commerce Center
Lane, traffic will start to pile
up, but to keep parked cars
from spilling out into the
fields adjacent from the KLC,
Lethbridge has asked teachers
to park in the back and side
lots to keep spots in the front


of the building available.
If there is an exorbitant
amount of cars parking off
campus, he is asking parents
to keep access roads clear for
traffic.
Entering the center from
U.S. 27 won't offer much
help, because parents will be
asked to move to the back of
the line, starting at
Commerce.
To help things transition
smoothly, officers from the
local police department will
be on duty to help control
traffic.
"People will perceive it as
poorly planned, but give it


three or four days," he said.
"Give it a chance for people
to figure it out."
For pickup, the same route
is suggested. A system
Lethbridge speaks highly of
and used when he was assis-
tant principal at Cracker Trail
Elementary will be used.
There will be a faculty-
member at the stop sign on
the south end of the KLC with
a microphone. Parents will be
asked the name of their child
and routed to one of six pick-
up "bays" marked with flags
numbered one through six.
Speakers along the side of
the building will broadcast the


name of the child and the bay
number. Teachers will be out-
side with their classes listen-
ing for the announcement and
helping students reach the
proper area.
"Once parents learn it, it
will go. over quickly,"
Lethbridge said.
On a good day his students
at CTE could be picked up in
a 20-minute span. He asked
for this specific system
because of its success at CTE.
Still, the first week will be
a trial by fire.
"Patience is requested," he
said. "The first week will be
rough."

SEBRING It just may be,
the final hooray for' former
crewmen 'of the USS
Highlands (APA 119).
About 20 men in their 80s
are expected for the October
reunion of the Haskell class
troop transport that earned its
two battle stars during World
War II.
"Each year it's getting
smaller and smaller," Howard
Fleetwood, president of the
Military Sea Services
Museum in Sebring, said of
the annual get-togethers.
"This will probably be the last
one for them. Period.
Hopefully, we can make it a
good one."
This year they'll hold
muster at Inn on the Lakes
from Oct. 17-21. Last year
they gathered in Indianapolis.
Scheduled activities
include a trip to Kennedy


Space Center, where they'll
get to talk with an astronaut; a
special dinner program at
Highlands Little Theatre;
lunch at the museum, 1402
Roseland Ave., and a banquet
at the hotel.
"There 'were hundreds of
these ships," Fleetwood said.
"They were building so many
and they needed so'many. It
only took a couple of weeks
to make them."
USS Highlands was an
amphibious assault transport
with a ship's complement of
56 officers and 480 enlisted
men. It took Marines to the
battle units of 86 officers,
1,475 enlisted and 25 assault
craft and saw action at
Iowa Jima and Okinowa.
Highlands was commis-
sioned from 1944-46, and was
present with the USS Missouri
formation (forward and star-
board of the famed battleship)
when Japan surrendered.

Community Center fills for Avon Park Pioneer Homecoming


By ED BALDRIDGE
Newis-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Food,
friends, family and fun were
the catch words during the
first Avon Park Pioneer
Homecoming Picnic Saturday
in the Community Center.
More. than 140 were in
attendance representing every
group from community lead-
ers to high school classes.
The largest group by far was
the graduating class of 195L.
Hosted by the Avon Park
Historical Society and
Museum, the covered dish
event was a trip back in time
with guests sharing stories
about the history of the City


STAFF
Continued from 1A
years, will be the new sales
assistant, rounding out -the
changes to the advertising
department.
Skip Looney, who has
babied the News-Sun press for
10/i years as a press man and
knows the machine like the
back of his hand, has been
named, production manager.
He will oversee the day-to-
day press operations from
making things ready to final
print ,- including keeping
inventory and ordering sup-
plies.
Born and raised in
Lakeland, Looney originally
came to the News-Sun when it
was owned by the New York
Times. He had planned to
return to Lakeland as soon as
he could, but fell in love with
the newspaper and Highlands
County and stayed.
"It is going to be produc-
tion's goal to not only meet,
but to exceed all customer and
community expectations," he
said.
Come Nov. 27, Rick Fair
will celebrate his first com-
plete year at the News-Sun as
- circulation director.
Now Fair will direct the
mail room as well.


'Some called me a mischievous kid,

but I think I was just experimental.'

BILL HOOD, Pioneer of the Year


of Charm.
"What they used to have
was quarterly meetings under
the Old Settlers' Association."
Larry Levey, Historical
Society president, said. "But
those meetings were not open
to the public like this event."
Although some railed
against the city for a last
minute decision to pull the
funding for the event, Jhe
overall result was a success.

room is where

place.
Fair, while I
relatively new
to the News-
Sun, is a sea- .
soned circulla- '
tion man. Hoehne
His father
was one before him, and one
brother works for another
paper in South Carolina,
where Fair grew up.
"It's in my blood," Fair
said with a laugh. "I've been
delivering papers since I was
12 years old.
"What enticed me here was
the potential for growth. It's
wide open to increase reader-
ship. We're expanding into
other counties, to cities like
Wauchula, Zolfo Springs and
Frostproof. It's very excit-
ing."
One change that has made a
difference in the newsroom
Scott Dressel's elevation from
sports editor to assistant edi-
Stor.


"This is a relaxed, enter-
taining event." Levey said
during his opening speech.
"Many talk about the. days
when we would just have a
comfortable gathering, and
this is one of those days."
One of the highlights of the
picnic included the naming of
the Pioneers of the Year. An

Central Florida Striders

up and running again


By KEVIN .. SiHUTT
ker'vin.,hIullt (ll('w,\'sxi.c m ('0n)
SEBRING Running
clubs exist for several reasons
- camaraderie, coaching,
competition, etc.
Chet Brojek resurrected
Central Florida -Striders
because of one the
Heartland Triathlon.
He and Ed Okie of Lake
Wales.formed the club about
20 years ago. At its peak,
Striders had 50 members.
They merged with a Lakeland
running club 10 years ago and
Striders lost its stride.
"The thing that made me
finally decide to restart the
club was the triathlon,"
Brojek said of the two-year-
old Sebring race.
The Firecracker 5k on July
4 was his benchmark. In
2005, the year before the first
Heartland tri. the mid-summer
event drew "maybe" 80 peo-
ple. he said.
The number nearly doubled
to about 150 last year and
more than 200 participated
last month.
"All of a sudden I saw a lot


Already the club has 20
members, and Brojek's plans
include a local race series and
a half marathon.
Running is an inexpensive,
relatively low-tech sport
requiring only shoes, socks,
shorts and shirts.
Why a club?
"Sometimes, if you're just
running by yourself you're
not getting better," Brojek
said. "It's an avenue for meet-
ing new people, picking up a
training partner."
Committing to run with
others often reduces instances
when a person would other-
wise not pound the ground.
A former coach at Avon
Park High School, Brojek
shares his knowledge with
club members who're com-
mitted to improving.
Currently, he's training sever-
al county residents for a half
marathon in Orlardo -
Richard Percy and Richard
"Bo" Birt are two of them.
"That's a distance that peo-
ple S'ay, 'I can't do that,
Chet,'" Brojek said. "If they

S-65C Lock in
Highlands to be
closed Aug. 20-31

CORNWELL The South
Florida Water Management
District reports that the S-65C
navigation lock at Cornwell
in Highlands County will be
taken out of service beginning
Monday. The lock is being
closed for maintenance and
inspection of navigation lock
gates. The overhaul is expect-
ed be complete by Aug. 31.
During this maintenance, it
will be necessary to com-
pletely dewater the navigation
lock so that boat traffic, even
in an emergency, cannot be
accommodated. While the
navigation lock is out of serv-
ice, boaters will continue to
have access to the Kissimmee
River from several boat
ramps that will lead both into
the restored portion of the
river north of the S-65C navi-
gation lock, as well as into
Pool D of the river to the
south. Some of these boat
ramps include:

Annual Caladium Festival 5k changes course and Hame asNtiae 3 .Rdgwo r


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.sliutt@newssun.com .
LAKE PLACID The 5-kilometer
foot race held the past three years dur-
ing the Caladium Festival has a new
name.
"We changed the name this year to
honor Dr. (Tom) McDonald, who put
together the race," the Rev. Ray
Cameron said. "It simply wouldn't be
happening without him.
This year, however, the Dr. Tom
McDonald Caladium 5k will start
without the '82-year-old nationally-
ranked runner, who died January.
A retired dentist who moved to
Lake Placid i, the 1970's. McDonald
.6 'iinpeted' ,iren.',rn. pI.., had the
S,'- .- '.tA-w ,,


medals to prove it, and was still run-
ning in the twilight of his life,
Cameron said..
McDonald was an active member of
Rotary, which is planning a tribute to
him at the race.
"It's' going to be a nice day,"
Cameron said, of the 7:30 a.m. race
that begins and ends at Lake Placid
Christian School, 106 E. Interlake
Blvd.
Medals designed by McDonald will
be awarded to the top three finishers
in each age group bracket. Overall
male, female, masters (male and
female) and hand-cyclist receive a tro-
phy in addition to the medal.
Lake Placid's Keane West has been


the only hand-cyclist to compete in
the niche division.
The race is sponsored by Lake
Placid Christian Ministerial
Association and Habitat for Humanity,
with all proceeds going to the latter,
said Cameron, pastor of First
Presbyterian Church.
Some 30 door prizes will be handed
out, a runner-specific MP-3 player
rounding out the schwag as a grand
prize.
Trinity Lutheran Church will man a
water station mid-course. The route
has changed from the previous two
years and will include a mile-long
stretch of Heartland Boulevard.
The c6hrse is hilly relative to races


held at Highlands Hammock State
Park. The flat middle portion of the
race is sandwiched between a down-
hill start and a moderate climb back to
the finish.
For more information, Cameron can
be reached at the church weekdays,
8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., 465-2742.
The registration form is available at
www.fpclp.com, but must.be printed
and snail-mailed. Each of the county's
three chambers of commerce also
have the registration forms.
The first 200 to register are guaran-
teed a T-shirt. It's $15 through
Thursday and $20 on race day.
Cameron expects more than 200
racers and walkers.

RITTER
Continued from 1A
always liked doing it, but I
knew that I probably could
not make a living at it."
Ritter, the son of Jim and
Wendy Ritter. was born and
raised in Sebring. He attend-
ed Sun 'N Lake for three
years and then transferred to
Cracker Trail Elementary
School. Both of these schools
now display the lively and
colorful images that this
young artist has painted on
their walls.
He has been active in
sports all his life, and played
baseball from Little League
through varsity at Sebring
High School. After a shoul-
der injury in his last year of
high school, he realized he
could no longer participate in
team sports.
"I wanted to stay in sports,
and since 1 have also been
writing most of my life. 1
turned to sports journalism."
Ritter's passion for sports
led him into mural art when
he drew a Miami Hurricanes
logo in a kid's room for a
friend. Another friend saw
that and asked for a Gators
logo in his kid's room. Word
soon got around that the ath-
lete was also an artist.
"Since 1 was always
involved in baseball, people
from the little league field
contacted me and said they


needed a nurLal. They wanted
Sthe 'big blue monster,""
Ritter remembers. "It was a
huge project that taught me a
lot about creating a painting
on such a large scale. But it
brought me a lot of attention
and 1 have never had to
advertise."
Another "baseball mother"
who is a staff member at
Cracker Trail Elementary
suggested that the school
have Ritter do a mural there.
"So last summer I started
working on a mural for
Cracker Trail, and finished it
during my Christmas break
from college."
Then Ritter received a call
in Tallahassee from faculty
member Diane Lethbridge,
asking if he would do a front
entrance mural at Sun 'N
Lake Elementary.
"She was my teacher in
fourth grade," Ritter remem-
bers with a grin. "1 agreed to
do it this summer. The big
one is finished and now I'in
also painting some others at
the entrance to the media
center."
Ritter has not had a lot of
formal art instruction,
explaining that he has stayed
on course to finish his writ-
ing degree. He switched his
major from journalism to
English because he felt that
the journalism program con-
centrated on "hard news" and
he wants to do magazine and


sports features.
"I changed to English
because it's a lot more cre-
ative. If I get a writing
degree, it will carry me
where I want to go."
He has also taken 12 hours
of art courses in college
"because there are things I
need to learn and want to
know."
But he works mostly from
an instinctive feel for his
design and a natural talent
for drawing simple, animated
figures on a colorful back-
ground.
"When I look at what I am
painting and something is not
right, I can feel it, my stom-
ach hurts a little. When I fig-
ure out what's not right and
change it, my stomach feels
better. I have a little GPS
system inside that tells me
where to go."
Ritter encourages chil-
dren's interest in art, because
he enjoys it so much hinimself.
"When 1 painted at Cracker
Trail last year, the kids were
still in school and they came
up to me and asked me about
it. I always stopped and
explained what I was doing
and showed them how."
Ritter said he gives a lot of
credit to his parents and
grandparents who have
always encouraged him.
"They keep telling me to
do it. They always support
me in-anything 1 do."

"I can't imagine doing any-
thing other than PE," she
said. "If you don't have

have railed against the pro-

Avon Park's implementa-
tion of the assessment result-
ed in a reduction in the city's
ad valorem rate from 9 to.7.5
mills. Sebring will most like-
ly reduce the village rate if
the program is put in place. It
is unclear, however, what the
millage reduction would be
due to budget uncertainties
and the looming vote on. the
proposed superexemption.
The best way to implement
the assessment would be
through property tax bills
because collections are high-
er, Hoffman wrote, but the
soonest they could be levied
would be November of next
year (and that date would be


very important. and plans to
collaborate with the other 20
kindergarten teachers to
incorporate lessons on num-
bers, letters, animals, and
whatever else a class may be
studying. This will help rein-
force their daily activities,
while her students remain
active in the classroom.
"Twenty teachers to collab-
orate with, it's a grand idea,"
she said. "To get help with

council took action by
December of this year).
The fee could be assessed
starting this year if it was
levied through utility bills or
a separate billing, Hoffman
added. Assessing the fee in
2007 could be important
because there are "rumblings"
that the state Legislature
could pass laws restricting or
prohibiting local governments
from levying special assess-

times, but they're still kick-
ing."


ments.
"The theory is that it may
be prudent to create and levy
a small assessment this year
just to have that option avail-
able 'on the books' before any
Legislative action," Hoffman
wrote.
Hoffman is not making a
specific recommendation as
to how the council should
proceed. The council meeting
begins at 6:30 at City Hall in
Sebring.


Air Force pilot missing from Vietnam War identified


Special to the News-Sun
The Department of Defense
POW/Missing Personnel'
Office (DPMO) announced
Wednesday that the remains
of a U.S. serviceman, missing
in action from the Vietnam
War,,have been'identified and
will be returned to his family
for burial with full military
honors.
The serviceman is Lt. Col.
Alton C. Rockett, Jr., U.S. Air
Force, of Birmingham, Ala.
He- wi-l-- be--buried -MiN-dt --in -
Arlington'National Cemetery
near Washington, D.C.
On June 2, 1967, Rockett
and his co-pilot, Capt. Daniel


L. Carrier, crewed the number
two aircraft in a flight of two
F-4Cs flying an armed recon-
naissance mission over Quang
Binh Province, North
Vietnam. During their bomb
run, anti-aircraft ground fire
was observed, but Rockett
reported that his aircraft was
not hit.
When the lead aircraft com-
pleted its bomb run, the flight
leader told Rockett to return
to base, but moments later, he
-saw--a -lairge fireball- in-hlis-
rear-view mirror. He made
.several radio calls to Rockett.
but did not hear or see any-
thing from the aircraft. Due to


the dangerous location, there
were no further search and
rescue attempts.
In June and July 1989,
Vietnamese officials repatri-
ated to the United States sev-
eral sets of'remains of U.S.
service members. The offi-
cials also supplied documents
identifying that three of the
sets of remains were those of
Rockett, Carrier and another

Veterans to travel free to visit WW II Memorial in D.C.


By MARY MARGARET STAlK
Highlands County Veterans Service Office
Honor Flight Network is the
brainstorm of a Retired Air Force
captain, Earl Morse, to honor the
veterans he has taken care of for
more than 27 years. Morse served as
a physician assistant after, retiring
from the Air Force in 1998.
While working in a clinic in Ohio
at the time the World War II memo-
rial opened, Morse was working
with a lot of WWII veterans. It was
obvious to Morse that most of these
senior heroes were unable physically
or mentally to complete the planning
and completion of a trip to
Washington D.C. on their own. Most
of the families and friends of the vet-
erans lacked the financial resources
or time to assist in a three- to fotkr-
day trip to D.C. Most of the veterans


had given up hope of ever seeing the
memorial designed for them.
That is when Morse began to plan
a way to get these heroes to the
memorial, and Honor Flight
Network was born. Morse asked for
assistance from other pilots to fly
individual veterans from Ohio to
Washington D.C., free of charge. He
met with an aero club during one of
its safety meetings, outlining the
volunteer program he was planning.
There were two major stipula-
tions: First, the veterans were to pay
nothing. The entire aircraft rental
($600-$1,200 for the day) would
have to be paid solely by the pilots.
Second, the pilots were to escort the
veterans around D.C. for the entire
day.
Following the initial presentation,
I1 pilots volunteered. The program,


starting with 11 private pilots, has
grown to using commercial aircraft
and utilizing volunteer guardians for
the veterans. The veterans still trav-
el for free, but the guardians pay for
their flight.
The mission has spread across the
United States. By the end of 2006,
891 WWII veterans have traveled
via Honor Flight Network to see the
WWII Memorial. Contact the Web
site at www.honorflight.org for addi-
tional information.
Florida has a group associated
with Honor Flight, First Coast
Honor Flight, sponsored by the
Rotary Club and other organizations
in and around Jacksonville. First
Coast utilizes USAir to charter
flights twice a year for 100 WWII
veterans and the necessary guardians
to travel from Orange Park to


Washington DC for a one-day trip.
The next trip is scheduled for Oct.
6. World War II veterans and volun-
teer guardians may call (904) 272-
1003. Guardians pay $375 for their
flight and meals, and assist the vet-
erans during the day. Duties of the
guardians may include assistance
with wheelchairs, scooters, or other
ambulatory devises, as well as mak-
ing sure the veterans are as comfort-
able as possible during the trip.
The cost of the trip, around
$65,000, is not covered by the
guardians' expenses, and donations
are needed to continue the trips.
Corporate sponsorships are assisting
with some of the expenses, but other
donations are welcome.
Plans for the October trip after
visiting the memorial will involve a.
trip to Walter Reed Hospital to visit


the soldiers and veterans there
before heading to Arlington for the
wreath ceremony.
The veterans attending the trip
.receive free airfare from Orange
Park to Reagan Airport, the shuttle
buses, a light breakfast, box lunch,
and in flight meal on the return
flight, as well as snacks throughout
the day. Guardians or escorts assist-
ing the veterans will receive the
same transportation and meals, at the
$375 cost.
Seating priority is for WWII vet-
erans. Family members may attend if
space is available, and will be
required to purchase their accommo-
dations as a Guardian or escort. For
more information on the Florida
flight, the Web site for Florida's
First Coast Honor Air is www.first

Vets seek employer

support for guard,

reserve members
By MARY MARGARET STAIK
Highlands County Veteran Services Qffice
SEBRING The Highlands County Board
.of County Commissioners listened as Joseph
A. Dionne, Highlands. County Veteran
Services Officer, made a brief presentation at
Tuesday's board meeting, asking the commis-
sioners to approve Chair Guy Maxcy's signing
.of a Proclamation, Resolution and Statement
.of Support to encourage employers to support
a strong National Guard and Reserve.
"I represent the over 20,000 veterans of this
county. But today, it concerns another segment
of our county, a segment not often talked about
or recognized," Dionne said. "Before an indi-
ovidual becomes a veteran, that person is in the
,military, either as active duty, Guard, or
,Reserve," he continued. "If you are active
'duty, then your employer is, the U.S.
.Government. But if you are Guard or Reserve,
your employer is somebody else, either gov-
ernment, public, or private business."
Dionne presented, "Our mission today is to
S:honor those employees who make that sacri-
'fice. But more than that, it is to honor the
-employers of those brave'warriors who defend
our nation and who pirvide the support to that
Guard/Reserve warrior while they are away
from their regular job defending, our nation."
Accompanying Dionne was Bud Wallen,
Florida Area 16 chairperson for Employer
Support to the Guard and Reserve (ESGR).
"The Department of Defense believes the
employers are an important influence on their
employees who serve their country, part-time,
as members of .the Reserve Forces," Wallen-
said.
Over half of the National Guard or Reserve
members are citizen-volunteers whose mili-
tary duty is a demanding commitment in addi-
tion to civilian career and family -responsibili-
ties. More than half of the nation's military

personnel serve part time in the National
Guard and Reserve and are employed full time
in civilian capacities.
The United States has never before demand-
ed more from or been more dependent upon
the training and readiness of National Guard
and Reserve volunteers, and are integral in the
support in the Defense of American liberty, as
well as responders to domestic emergencies.
Following the presentation, the board voted
to allow Maxcy to sign the documents, honor-
ing the Guard and Reserve members from
Highlands County.


VA's suicide hotline begins operations


Special to the News-Sun
WASHINGTON To
ensure veterans with emotion-
al crises have round-the-clock
access to trained profession-
als, the Department of
Veterans Affairs has begun
operation of a national suicide
prevention hot line for veter-
ans.
"Veterans need to know
these VA professionals are lit-
erally a phone call away,"
said Secretary of Veterans
Affairs Jim Nicholson said.
"All service members who
experience the stresses of
combat can have wounds on
their minds as well as their
bodies. Veterans should see
mental health services as
another benefit they have
earned, which the men and
women of VA are honored to
provide."
The toll-free hot line num-
ber is 1-800-273-TALK
(8255). VA's hot line will be
staffed by mental health pro-
fessionals in Canandaigua,
N.Y. They will take toll-free
calls from across the country
and work closely with local
VA mental health providers to


help callers. /
To operate the national hot
line, VA is partnering with the
Substance Abuse and Mental
Health Services Admin-istra-
tion of the Department of
Health and Human Services.
"The hot line will put veter-


the day or night, any day of
the week, from anywhere in
the country with trained,
caring professionals who can
help," Nicholson said. "This
is another example of the
VA's commitment to provide
world-class health care for


ans in touch --any time of our nation's veterans."


in the care and recovery of
their loved ones.
The concept of the Fisher
House is to provide military
families a safe, comfortable,
home-like environment,
allowing the sick or injured
veteran 'to be near their loved
ones during their recoveries.
Finding affordable and com-
fortable accommodations near
a VA facility is difficult.


"Having the Fisher House
located on the James A. Haley
campus may help the families
by reducing the stress of
unpleasant accommodations
for the families," Joseph A.
Dionne, Highlands County
Services Officer, said.
The Department of VA will
operate and maintain .the
home at no cost. to its resi-
dents.

Good food, good meat, was I pleased to eat


4" v."-: v .. i .--


TOFFI N IT

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley

I grew up in a household
of dedicated, serious cooks.
Both my mother and younger
brother raised food to a deli-
ciously edible art form. For
them, cooking was a way to
express love, and served as
an outlet for their creativity.
There was only one down-
side each was territorial
about the kitchen. We non-
cooks almost had to ask for
permission to touch anything
at all.
Groceries had to be stored
exactly where my mother and
brother wanted them; the
same for utensils, pots and
pans, even plates and silver-
ware.
*And heaven help you if
you used the good knife, for
example, to cut open a pack-
age, or washed the cast iron
>killci with soap and water
I've been railed at more
than once in my life for a
kitchen fdaux pas.

Friday and Saturday nights they serve Italian.


ed to the dining room and
adored for our appetites; our
offers of help were always
refused.
My sisters didn't learn how
to cook until they left home;
that's how protective my
mother and brother were of
their kitchen.
All of which is to say I
know a dedicated; serious
cook when I meet one.
Andy Capodiferro, who
home cooks Italian food at
Andy's Hot Dog World in
Lake Placid every Friday arid
Saturday night, is just such a
dedicated cook, even chef.
His kitchen is his castle.
That domain is a large,
rectangular room, with the


stove and ovens on one short
end, and the washing station
at the other.
In between is a large metal
table that is used as a spice
rack near the stove, and for
waitress prep and final plat-
ing everywhere else. There is
a raised shelf over the spices
where plates are stacked.
The work area is arranged
the opposite of a typing key-
board by which I mean
everything is placed for ease
of use, and frequency of
need.
There isn't much room
between the table and the
stove. The actual space des-
ignated for cooking is small
and cramped. In fact there is


only room for him, but that is
by design. Because he is one
person serving many,
Capodiferro needs everything
- spices, spoons, plates,
meats, pasta and sauces -
within an arm's reach for
easy access.
Too often, in the calm of
the dining room, with its
soothing music and soft
lighting, we forget the frenzy
in the kitchen and the amount
of hard physical labor that
goes into creating that picture
perfect, lip smacking, good
meal'.
It's one thing, after all, to
get all the elements of one
meal to come out at the same
time, imagine coordinating

Andy Capodiferro is more formal on the nights he serves
Italian cuisine, donning a chef's jacket. Here he plates an

TUFFLEY
Continued from 11A
It's enough to make some cooks
rail at their fate.
Which may be why chefs are noto-
rious drama queens.
But you get nothing of that from
Capodiferro.
A natural conversationalist,
Capodiferro is an affable host -
relaxed, open and funny. He has a
comfortable sense of self, been suc-
cessful in the past, and is living out a
life's dream in what for most people
would be their retirement.
The heir of generations of wonder-
ful cooks, both women and men,
Capodiferro grew up breathing in the
scents of Italy; tomato sauce runs in
his veins.
He has been cooking all of his life,
and loves being in the kitchen work-
ing with recipes that have been hand-
ed down to him, or are his take on
family standards, or are new ideas
altogether.
Early on we were in the dining
room talking when he suddenly inter-
rupted himself with a loud, "Oh no!"
He turned and ran into the kitchen,
rushed to the oven, grabbed a towel,
opened the door and yanked out a
metal pan with aluminum foil
wrapped across the top.
Swinging the pan up onto the table
he pulled back the foil, looked and
sighed in relief.


"We're in the nick of time," he
said relaxing his shoulders, "every-
thing is OK."
He had lost track of the time while
we were talking and almost ruined
the specialty stuffed peppers.
That refocused his mind on his
work, however, and suddenly, friend-
ly as he was, he turned into my
mother and brother before him, draw-
ing a line at my help, so I ended up
watching.
But Capodiferro is a master at
work and great fun to observe he
doesn't waste a.motion, and in some
cases didn't even look as he reached
out a hand to grab What he needed.
He shook a pan here, dipped a ladle
in there, took a pinch of this, a dol-
lop of that and the air'filled with the
smell of pepper, garlic, tomatoes and
onion. Instantly I was hungry.
Which leads us to the main thing I
did get to do at Andy's Hot Dog
World eat.
Capodiferro insisted I try out a
sample plate with lasagna, eggplant
parmesan and his own-Italian style
chicken, with pasta and tomato sauce
on the side.
I've never had a more arduous
assignment.
Eating good food until I dropped.
It was torture. I had to let out my
pants.
I should mention that
Capodiferro's wife, Marti
Capodiferro, who runs the dining


room, has a wonderful singing voice
and formal training. She provides
live music during the evening,
singing a collection of ballads,
Broadway, and opera. You can see
how I suffered.
Now there is a twist to this story,
which you may have already pon-
dered. How does a sophisticated
Italian dining room get the name of
Andy's Hot Dog World?
It's because the hot dogs came
first.
Afternoons the Capodiferros 'pro-
vide all-American hot dog meals
with just about any imaginable top-
ping.
For example a Memphis Dog is a
hot dog with barbecue saude and cole
slaw (don't laugh, it's delicious.
Well, at least I thought so.)
It was only after he had been open
a while, and Capodiferro saw the
need for a nice downtown place serv-
ing food at night, that he expanded,
into evening Italian.
I did get to prepare raspberry can-
noli for the dessert menu.
The filling was a blend of fresh
raspberries, a pint of ricotta cheese
and a container of mascarpone cheese
- that's a creamy cheese made from
milk from cows who are only fed
flowers and confectioner's sugar.
All I had to do was put the ingredi-
ents in the bowl and blend them with
a fork.
Then I got to eat one of those too.


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Capodiferro prepares hot-dogs one recent afternoon. The 'Coney' is
the most popular, served with raw onions, mustard, and a favorite
uncle's special meat sauce. Capodiferro grew up in up-state New
York, moved to Boston in 1958, and from there to Florida in the
70s. He and his wife marti have been in Highlands County for two
years having moved up froi Miami.

On a safari to catch those elusive hidden fees


I hate hidden fees.
It seems like every time I
turn around, I am hit with a
hidden fee. Not taxes. Taxes I
understand. Taxes are the
money we give to the gov-
Sernment so that people in
Venezuela can get grants
from a United States aid pro-
gram to start a business. That
I understand. I may not like
that either, but I understand.
But hidden fees I just do
not understand. It seems
there is something shady
about anyone who slips in a
hidden fee.
Take for example a recent
cell phone contract. Cell
phone contracts are very con-
fusing. In-network calls, out-
of-network.calls, service
"bundles."
I just want to make sure
my wife can remind me to
pick up milk while I'm at


work.
After much dis-
cussion, and a con-
fusing road map of
services and charges,
the salesman assured
me the new plan had
the same features,
but was lower than
my previous con-
tract.
When I got my
first bill, it was
almost double. Ha! I

had them now. I called the
cell phone company. They
explained that my bill was so
high because I was being
charged for a month and a
half since I signed up in the
middle of the month. OK.
That I can understand.
But next month, the bill
was still higher than my orig-
inal contract. "I would like to
discuss my bill," I told the


bored sounding per-
son who answered
the phone when I
called. "Press one
for English, and two
for Spanish."
If you cannot
speak English, how
do you know to
press two?
Finally, Igot a
person, but they did-
n't like the fact that
I exclaimed


"Finally, a real person!"
Seems that was bad form.
I asked her about my bill,
and she immediately began
typing. I knew she was typ-
ihg because I could hear the
little keyboard go clickety-
click in the background for
like five minutes.
"Can I have your name
please?" Wait, what was all
the clickety-click?


"Your account number
please." Ever try to find an
account number on one of
these bills?
"I will have to transfer
you," she said. "Can you
hold?" I didn't mind holding
so much; this is a very large
company. I know from expe-
rience that to the customer
service departments at the
really large telephone giants
I'm not just a number; I'm a
Really big number. Besides
the hold music was pleasant.
Something from the '80s.
When I finally get to the
right person, who was strug-
gling with the English lan-
guage by the way, he could
see last month's bill, but
could not see this month's
bill.
I don't understand this

Centralized dispatch vs. Avon Park
Editor:
I am in favor of having a centralized dis-
patch, but it has to move in a very slow,
methodical and positive manner. I have been
involved in several consolidations and/or cen-
tralizations and normally it provides equal or
better service, plus saving manpower and
money overall.
But, having said that I am very concerned
about the aniniosity that has grown between
'the sheriff's office and the Avon Park Police
Department. This amazes me because I think
of both of these organizations as being very
professional.
I am totally amazed that the
sheriff has not sat down with

The evils of


bottled water

So let me ask you how
many of you readers out
there drink bottled water? I
know some-of you do
because I see you with the
bottles in your shopping
carts. I doubt the stores stock
loads of the stuff because
people aren't buying them.
I am not one of those who
habitually buy bottled water.
No, I don't drink straight tap
water. Highlands County has
many wonderful qualities
that should have tourists
flocking to the area throfgh-
out the year. The taste of our
tap water is not one of those
qualities. So I employ a
faucet filter before the water
gets into my mouth.
I did drink bottled water
the two times I went to
Guyana. That was a ques-
tion of not getting deathly
ill. Guyanese people who
have lived their lives with
the water can drink it with
no problems. Americans
can't.
1 bring up this subject
because bottled water has
come to my attention lately.
And let me tell you, the news
hasn't been complimentary.
First off, I have to tell you
that not all bottled water
comes from pure streams or
artesian wells. Some bottled
water actually comes from
the same kind of source that
our tap water comes from a
place that supplies water to a
municipality.
So what makes bottled
water from that source dif-
ferent from the water from
the tap? Well, the bottle
company puts the water
through some kind of purifi-
cation process that's sup-
posed to take the bad stuff

Let's start at the beginning.

makes me wonder. When I
get water at a restaurant in
town, am I getting purified
water or tap water? Maybe
the restaurants have better
taps than I do.
But that is not all the news
regarding bottled water. I
refer you to Chicago and one
Alderman George Cardenas.
It seems the city has a short-
fall in the city's water and
sewer funds to the tune of
almost $40 million. Part of,


tain their structures and exte-
rior areas in such a way as to
comply with the requirements
of this article..." Nope we
missed that one. Let's read
on.
Section 22-603(b) "All
exterior surfaces, including
but not limited to,
doors...shall be maintained in
good condition." The
women's bathroom door is
rusted out so bad it might fall
off the hinges. It folds over


the reason for this has been a
decline in water use.
So, what does Alderman
Cardenas think? He thinks
the bottled water industry is
to blame for the decline in
water use. That, and they are
putting their product in those
horrible plastic bottles, which
wind up in landfills. This is
bad for the environment.
The alderman's solution to
all this is to slap a tax on
bottled water 25 cents a


when you try to shut it. So,
we need to work on that.
Maybe we can do better on
Section 22-603(f) "All exteri-
or walls shall be free from
holes, breaks and loose or
rotting materials..." Nope, we
missed that one by a mile.
Let's try another section.
Section 22-603(g) "The roof
and flashing shall be sound,
tight and not have any
defects that admit rain." The
roof at the concession stand


bottle, in fact. That should
discourage people doing that
crazy buying bottled water
thing. According to rushlim-
baugh.com, the alderman is
quoted as saying, "People
enjoy jogging or driving with
a bottle of water. There's a
cost associated with this
behavior. You have to pay for
it."
So they didn't pay for the
bottled water they use? Or is
it that they didn't pay the
/


leaks bad. Just the other day
there was so much water in
the concession stand that it
tripped the breakers. Progress
Energy had to come out and
repair it.
How about Section 22-
603(n) "All exterior doors
door assemblies and hard-
ware shall be in good condi-
tion."
This one brings us to the
men's bathroom door. We
definitely need to make sure
it at least closes. The frame is
so out of place, it takes a
grown person a few minutes
to get it shut. Then it sticks.
What if a fire happened and a
kid was in the bathroom with
the door shut?
Oh, and if any city official
tries to tell us that the bath-
rooms in the rec center can
be used instead of the club
house, the rec center closes at
7 p.m. Can we borrow some
buckets after then?
Does a kid have to get hurt
by the doors or electrocuted
before the city council and
city manager does some-


right people i.e., the city of
Chicago? How dare those
people who make bottled
water create a product people
want to buy rather than drink
the tap stuff.
Here's what bugs me.
People like bottled water, the
government doesn't make
money off it, and some elect-
ed official thinks they have
to tax it. That is government
growth at work. And the last
thing government needs is to


thing? I know trees on The
Mall are nice, but they are
little condolence when a kid
is hurt and bleeding from a
rusty and broken bathroom
door.
If it is a budget problem,
then why are we not leaving
money for maintenance and
repair? I am pretty sure that
it is cheaper to take care of
the buildings we have proper-
ly than waiting until they fall
apart.
When will the city of Avon
Park get off their high horses
and fix their own buildings?
Hopefully before some child
is hurt, maybe before the
next election.
If the city was setting the
example for minimum main-
tenance, maybe we would not
need another law.

It almost makes you feel
sorry for the bottled water

me to go buy some though.

.either. I mean:I could see this
month's bill just fine. Matter of
fact, it was all too clear upon fur-
ther inspection. But I will have to
wait until next month to discuss my
cell phone bill. Apparently I had to
wait until his department could see
;my current bill.
i So I did some researrchon my
.own.


Individually, these fees don't
seem to be much. Just a few cents
or a dollar. But added together, they
seem ridiculous.
I found hidden fees everywhere.
On my home phone bill, the cable
bill, my property taxes. Ever buy a
car? Full of hidden fees. Your home
mortgage, wow, now there's some
major hidden fee-age.
Starting with all my utility bills, I
began adding up every hidden fee I
could ferret out- On most bills, they
are easy to find. Usually under.the


heading of "taxes and other
charges."
On the average they accounted
for about 20 percent of any given
bill.
Take my home phone last month.
My service fee was $19. That's the
fee for having the phone in the first
place. The taxes and hidden fees
were $11.39. This just doesn't seem
right to me.
The most unfair hidden fee to me
is the Interstate Access surcharge.
This charge is used to recover the.


cost of local telephone companies
iwho help with interstate calling. I
don't have long distance on my
home phone, but I still have to pay.
In Florida, we have a new hidden
fee, it's called the Hurricane
Recovery Fee or sometimes a Storm
Recovery Fee.
This fee is there to make sure that
the big utility companies make
enough profit. I just hate seeing a
vice president scrambling for .
change at'the drive thru: Don't you?
Those flashy television commer-


cials certainly never discuss the
hidden fees. Wouldn't it be nice if
they did?
"We here at your friendly neigh-
borhood global mega telephone
company have a lower Hurricane
Recovery Fee than of any of the
other competitors."
I would certainly sign up.

Admission deadlines are approaching for

veterans planning to go back to school


There are many factors to
consider when choosing a
military-friendly or veterans
preference school. Among the
choices and decisions that
need to be made are determin-
ing the degree options avail-
able to the veteran or active
military-personnel; the
school's policy for using
CLEP and military experience
(ACE) credits; the school's


accreditation; and the knowl-
edge level of the financial
assistance counselor to assist
with financing the cost of
tuition.
There are thousands of
schools that can be consid-
ered veteran or military-
friendly. It is often difficult to
find the school that offers
,exactly what is needed for
education and career training


and that will accommodate
the unique lifestyle of active
duty military or employed
veterans:
By searching the Web site
Military.com, veterans or
active duty military personnel
can find a school that matches
the educational needs. A short

Wish takes Hill on shopping spree


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.chrsty@newssun.comi
SEBRING The past two
years have brought a lot of
hope and too many let downs
to Tameka Hill.
Tameka began her battle
with sclerosis of the liver in
July 2002. It took nearly three
years to get her name added to
the national transplant list and
once her name was on that
list, it took another tragedy to
help Tameka get her new
liver. The organ transplant
cam from one of the thou-
sands of Hurricane Katrina
victims in Louisiana.
Tameka's surgery was per-
formed in September 2005
and all was well until a week
before the surgery's one year
anniversary. Then her body
started rejecting the organ --
for the first time.
She dealt with the third
rejection two months ago and
is once again hoping the intra-
venous medication she is tak-
ing will help pull her through.
Helping pass the time until
she feels healthy again,


Tameka spent Sunday in West
Palm Beach on a five-hour
shopping spree, and traveled
there in style. Tameka was
picked up in Sebring in a
white- stretch limousine pro-
vided by the Make-A-Wish
Foundation.
The afternoon of. shopping
ended with dinner at Red
Lobster.
Monday, Patricia Hill
accompanied her daughter to
Gainesville where doctors are
trying to determine if they
will increase or decrease
Tameka's medication.
Doctors, she said, are telling
her it is vital that Tameka take
medication that costs $1,200 a
month.
"I work a whole month just
to buy one bottle of medica-
tion.-We are working on get-
ting it all straightened out,"
Patricia Hill said.
"She (Tameka) wants to be
normal like everyone else and
do the things other teenagers
do like going to the mall and
the movies, acting like a nor-
mal kid. She doesn't want to


be treated like she is handi-
capped," she said.
And now with the shopping
spree behind her, Tameka is
looking forward to a trip next
month to Ne\v York to visit
family and see the Broadway
performance of "The Color
Purple."

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop

Your second

conscience

Our grandson, Jonathon,
is learning so much as he
observes his parents. He's
only 2 1/2 and picking up
phrases and using them in
the right context.
When we visited our
son and his family in
North Carolina in April,
we were all having a con-
versation together and
started laughing out loud.
But the subject matter *
flew over Jonathon's head.
However, not to be left
out, we suddenly heard his
expressive voice ask;
"What's going on here?" as
he lifted his hands for
emphasis. We laughed and
he joined in the fun.
After we had been home
a week, our son shared
how they had begun pray-
ing with Jonathon before
bed simply with the
"Now I lay me down to
sleep" prayer.
That was all right the
first night. But, the next
night he started to cry and
our son couldn't figure out
why. But, as he began
walking out the door, he
heard a mumbling voice
saying something and
turned to see Jonathon's
hands folded in prayer and
hear him declare,
"A.....men!"
"Oh, you want to pray,"
said his daddy.
So, they have been
teaching him to talk to
Jesus. One night the smoke
alarms sounded because of
smoke from a candle.
Knowing how loud sounds
frightened Jonathon, they
ran to his room. They
found him shivering in
bed, but saying over and
over, "Dear Jesus, Dear
Jesus, Dear Jesus."
S He knew where to go for
comfort
Speaking about little
children, Jesus says' in
Matthew 18: 10, NIV, "See
that you do not look down
on one of these little ones.
For I tell you that their
angels in heaven always
see the face of my Father
in heaven."
Children also can act as
our second conscience as
our son has recently dis-
covered.
One day as he was hur-
rying out the door, his wife
reminded him to take the
cell phone with him. So,
on another occasion, when
he was leaving to go to the
store, Jonathon asked him
if he was going bye-bye.
Daddy replied, "Yes, for a
little while."
"Don't forget the cell
phone," he said.
And, now in the car,
after hearing his mom's
gentle reminder to his
daddy about slowing down
because of a red light up
ahead, Jonathon observes
the traffic signals. It's not
uncommon for a little
voice from the back seat to
say, "Slow down, Daddy,
there's a red light."
We may be raising our
children; but, it's amazing
how God will use them to

SFCC's first EPI grads now teaching


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK For Tracey Brcssette, the
beginning of a new school year means that
she'll be starting her "dream job."
Last September, Bressette was one of the
students who enrolled in the first class offered
by the South Florida Community College
Educator Preparation Institute. In less than a
year, Bressette completed her classes, began
taking her state teaching exams, and was hired
to teach eighth-grade social studies at Hill-
Gustat Middle School in Sebring.
Any professional who holds a .bachelor's
degree can become a certified primary or sec-
ondary teacher in Florida by attending the
EPI's approximately one-year program. By
August, one student had graduated from the


program, passed her
state teaching exams,
and earned her pro-
fessional teaching
certificate. Five had
completed the pro-
gram and were in the
process of taking
their state teaching
exams. Eleven more
were scheduled to
finish their final class
in September. And
five had secured
teaching jobs in
Highlands, DeSoto or
Hardee county.
Because students
can enroll in the EPI
whenever a new class
begins, or about
every five weeks, 36
enrolled during- the
first year, significant-
ly more than the goal
of 20.
For Colleen Rafatti,


become an elementary school teacher. Several
students moved to Highlands County for the
sole purpose of attending the EPI, having
heard about it from parents or grandparents.
Bressette, 34, a lifelong Sebring resident.
was interested in teaching when she attended
Flagler College in St. Augustine. She pursued
a bachelor's degree in psychology instead and,
after graduating in 1995, returned to
Highlands County to work with mentally ill
drug addicts as a primary counselor at the
Florida Center for Addictions and Disorders.
Five years ago, she became the director of
Christian education at First Presbyterian
Church of Sebring. Working with children and
young adults renewed her desire to teach. "I
wanted to do something more," Bressette said,

Preparation Institute (EPI), will teach
eighth-grade social studies at Hill-Gustat.


Academy. To continue


program coordinator,


these results spell success.
"We want to grow our own teachers and-
keep them here," Rafatti said. "Last January,
several students in our first cohort were
offered teaching jobs for the fall, even though
they hadn't finished the program."
What kind of professionals are becoming
teachers through the EPI? According to.
Rafatti, 86 percent are women who have a
desire to teach or find the profession to be
compatible with raising school-aged children.
Some are teachers who have temporary teach-
ing certificates and are facing a deadline for
earning their permanent certificates. .
Their backgrounds are diverse, ranging):
from fine arts to computer technology to
microbiology. Occasionally, Rafatti encoun-
ters students making dramatic career changes,
as in the case of a police officer who wanted to


something tnat
would have an impact
on these kids on a
daily basis."
A friend told
Bressette about the
EPI, and she enrolled
immediately. "It fit
into my schedule
really well," she said,
since the program
offers all-day classes
on Saturday. "It was
a challenge to go
back.to school after
10 years, but the pro-
fessors were amaz-
ing."
Rocio French, 43,
had a temporary
teaching certificate,
which allowed her to
teach high school-
level math classes at
the Avon Park Youth
teaching, she had to


obtain her professional certificate, and the
academy, wanting to keep her, paid her tuition.
A native of Peru, French holds' bachelor's
degrees in marketing and management and a
master's degree in management. Previously,
she worked in college recruitment and taught
college-level tourism classes. She found
teaching high school math to be a completely
different experience.
"I began to apply the teaching strategies I
learned through the EPI right away," French
said. "Even my principal commented that my
lesson plans were becoming more interactive
with the students."
At one point, because she was working a
second job in addition to teaching, French
considered dropping out of the EPI program,
but she said Rafatti prodded her to stay. "And
the students were so helpful," French said.
"They didn't let me fall behind."

Caladiums a colorful and simple choice for landscaping


News
From The
Watershed

Corine Burgess


One of
the unique
things
about
Highlands
County,
Lake
Placid in
particular,
is that it is
one of the
few places
in the
world that
caladiums


are grown.
Caladiums are shade-lov-
ing plants that originate from
the rain forests of the
Amazon Basin. They are
members of the Araceae fam-
ily and the genus Caladium;
they are indigenous to Brazil
and neighboring areas of
South America and Central
America. They grow in open
areas of the forest and on the
banks of creeks and go dor-
mant during the dry season.
Caladiums grow from corms
and can be propagated by
dividing the tubers. They


thrive in the warmer climates
and prefer shady areas.
These beautiful, ornamen-
tal plants are known for their
colorful foliage. The heart-
shaped leaves range in col-
oration and patterns of pink,
red, green and white. The
size of the plant depends on
the size of the tuber. Large
tubers will produce plants
with large leaves, while
smaller tubers produce plants
with smaller leaves. While
growing in the wild, caladi-
ums may grow 15-35 inches
tall, with leaves mostly from
5-17 inches long and broad.
Dr. Nehrline, known as
Florida's Premier Botanist, is
given credit for introducing
the colorful plant to Florida
agriculture. Dr. Nehrline did
his work and research from
1886-1929. He had a true
passion for horticulture and
introduced numerous new
.plants to Florida in his day.
Caladiums were first grown
in the Lake Placid area in the
early 1940's and today they
are primarily grown right'

here in the Central Florida
region.
One of the reasons that
caladiums are so popular is


Caladiums can also be grown
in pots and it is recommend-
ed that tubers are used.

generally a problem.
The caladium plant is con-
sidered poisonous and should
not be consumed. The plant
may cause irritation to the
lips and will also irritate sen-
sitive skin. Caladiums can be
a problem to children who
ingest the leaves as well as to
family pets that might nibble


on the foliage. So make sure
to educate the kids about the
plant and keep the pets away.
Generally, when you want
to purchase caladiums, you
would buy the tubers. These
come in various sizes includ-
ing mammoth (3 1/2 inches),
jumbo (2 1/2-3 1/2 inches),
No. 1 (1 1/2-2 1/2 inches)
and No. 2 (1-1 1/2 inches).
Caladiums may also be pur-
chased as seedlings or full
sized plants.
There are many different
varieties of caladiums and
they make beautiful land-
scape plants. So, if you want
to add some color to your
home or yard, contact one of
your local Caladium growers
and find out more. The
Caladium Festival, held in
Lake Placid each year, will
be celebrated this month
from Aug. 24-26.

Two-day Sertoma Junior's finale tees off


News-Sun photos by DAN HOEHNE
Julianne Lnd follows through on her tee-shot at the third
hole Saturday, in the first day of the Sertoma Junior Golf
Tour's season ending championship tournament.


By DANIEL HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING The sun was
shining, the temperatures ris-
ing and the competitive spirit
burning Saturday, as the
Sertoma Junior Golf Tour
teed off it's final weekend
with the first of two rounds to
decide the season champions.
A total of 62 golfers in
eight different age divisions
teed off with plenty at stake.
The top six finishes of the
summer are totaled for each
golfer to determine their point
total and considering this
tournament can yield 60


points, double the season total
for a tournament win, and for
some this would be the sixth
tournament played in, move-
ment on the leader board
could be considerable.
Camiel White, in third
place in the girls 15-17 year-
old division, with 120.5
points heading into the week-
end, knew she wouldn't be
able to catch Kayla Dunn, the
leader with 190 points, but
she had other aspirations.
"I am in third place and
Heather Brownell is in second
(with 135 points)," White
said. "But if I have anything


to say about it, she won't be
for long."
White will have a little
more work to do, as her 92
equaled Brownell's, while
Dunn carded an 82.
Julianne Lind, playing in
her sixth tournament of the
season, shot an 88 to give her-
self an opportunity to move
up from her fourth-place spot
in the standings.
Another tight race is seen
in the girls 11-14 year-old
division, with Lacey
McClenithan (175) and

30th Highlands Independent Bank/Sertoma


tournament is loaded once again


By SCOTT DRESSEL
scott.dressel@newssun.com
SEBRING If you want
to play in the 30th edition of
the Highlands Independent
Bank/Sertoma Golf
Tournament and didn't send
your entry in a while ago,
well .. better luck next year.
Once again, the ultra-popu-
lar tournament, set for next
weekend at Sun 'N Lake, has
a full field and then some,
with a total of 256 golfers
(128 two-person teams in 10
flights) already lined up and
several more on a waiting
list, according to tournament
director Eddie Freeland.
And the field, as usual, is
loaded with talent from the
championship flight.
Defending champs Bruce
Scamehorn and Drew Gillan-
of Polk County, who shot a

championship
flight is more
competitive than
it's ever been.'
EDDIE FREELAND
Tournament Director
65 in the opening round best
ball and a 60 in the scramble
the next day to take a four-
stroke win, are back to
defend their title. The 2005
winning team of Jeff Fleeman
and Steve Ready, also out of
Polk County, is back this
year, as well.
The Walt Shirey/Mike
Heston duo, as well as the
team of Pete DuPriest and


Mark Hopkins are also strong.
contenders for the overall
win, but any team in the top
flight has a chance to take
the title.
"The championship flight
is more competitive that it's
ever been," said Freeland, a
former champ himself who
won't be playing this year
since his golf game has come
to a halt due to back prob-
lems.
The Sertomavhas long been
one of the most popular golf
tournaments in central
Florida and seems to grow
every year, but longtime
players can expect the same
hospitality and amenities
they've come to enjoy.
The South Florida
Community College athletes
will still be out in force man-
ning the bag drop and selling


raffle tickets, there will still
be plenty to eat and drink
during play and the Saturday
night Sertoma Luau, featur-
ing the California Toe Jam
Band, is going to be just as
fun as usual.
And its all for a good
cause mainly the speech
and hearing impaired of
Highlands County, but also
SFCC, the Boy Scouts and
the Sertoma Junior Golf Tour.
Freeland said both courses
at Sun 'N Lake are in super.
shape for the tournament, and
those who haven't played
Deer Run for a while will be
surprised at one of the holes.
"Hole No. 15 is out to eat
many lunches," Freeland
said. "There's water all down
the left-hand side now."
Just like every year, there
will be great prizes for the


top finishers the usual
color televisions and trophies
for the flight winners and
a treasure trove of door
prizes piled up inside the
Candlelight Restaurant.
Freeland said he wanted to
thank all those who donated,
but especially Highlands
Independent Bank and the
rest of the major sponsors:
Highlands Coca-Cola, Bernie
Little Distributors, Sebring
International Raceway,
Gerard and Associates,
P.A./C.P.A., the News-Sun
and Highlands Today.
"Without the support of
Highlands Independent Bank
and the rest of the sponsors,
this tournament wouldn't be
where it is today," Freeland
said.

ment, you do not know what you are
missing.
Thursday, Aug. 23 will see a tourna-
ment in Avon Park and there is still time
to plan on the Aug. 30 tournament in
Sebring.
After Sebring there are just four sum-
mer tournaments left, but some parks are

over a hundred international and local

Allowing your child to receive martial
arts training is not opening up a door to
violence; it is opening a door to building
a solid foundation of self-esteem and
confidence.
Students learn that respect for others,
as a priority, naturally leads to a respect
for self.
We are looking forward to involving
the youth of Highlands County.
It will be from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., on
Saturday, Oct. 27 at Hill-Gustat Middle
School, at 4700 Schumacher Road in

ments be placed by Sept. 25.

at 385-0086 for more information and
placing orders.
The following information is needed:
Sponsor's name, address, phone number
and contact person.
Please indicate which size advertise-
ment you'd like to purchase and enclose
a business card and/or logo that will be,
displayed in our program.
Please make checks or money orders
payable to: Silat Martial Arts Inc.
All Sponsorship Advertisements will
be printed in black and white; color is
available for an additional fee.

GOLF
Continued from 1D
Savanna Fisher (170) within
five points of each other.
McClenithan maintained
her narrow edge with a 66,
while Fisher is keeping the
heat on with her 67.
Kendall Griffin stood alone
in the 10-and-under girls
group, literally, as she is the
only one playing this week-
end, keeping her season lead
safe, but that didn't stop her
from turning in a strong 57
for nine holes.
David Hebert looked to be
safe in the lead of the 6-8
year-old boys with 190 points
heading into the weekend,
and his first round :score of
30, for six holes, should keep
things secure.
Ben Tubbs, in second com-
ing in, also had an impressive
first-round score of 34, while
Brock Barnicle carded a 35.
Rocky Khara also is pretty
secure with the top spot for
the 17-18 year-old boys, with
205 points, and his one-under





Camiel White got off to a
good start in her pursuit of
second place in the girls 15-
17 year-old division as gets
her chip airborne from just
off the first green Saturday
and was able to get it to set-
tle within one foot of the
hole.


par 71 added a little more
security.
Although Kaleb Saunders,
fourth coming in, matched
Khara on the day with a 71 of
his own.
A tight rage looked to be
brewing in the 9-10 year-old
boys division, with Silas
Berry holding a 13-point
advantage coming into the
tournament over Kyle Hewett.
Berry's 50, for nine holes,
kept his lead safe for the
moment, but Hewett's 55 on
the day keeps him poised to
make a second-day run.
Nic Staffieri and Austen
Flannery each carded 56s as
they battle it out for third
place in the division -
Staffieri leads Flannery by
17.5 points.
Austen Tracey is putting
the heat, on Tyler Hewett in
the 11-12 year-old boys.
Trailing in points by 40
heading in, Tracey shot a 49,
to Hewett's 51 to keep things
in doubt.
Especially with Joey
Staffieri, currently in fourth


place, making some noise
with his 48 on the day.
Tyler Sanders and Sean
Garner are in a tight race in
the 13-14 year-old division
with Sanders entering the
weekend with 180 points to
Garner's 168.5.
The play was just as close
Saturday, with Sanders card-
ing a 78 and Garner a 79
which should make for an
exciting Sunday.
There is also a smidgen of
doubt in the 15-15 year-old
boys division, with Greg
Gentry leading Blake Liles,
188-170.
Liles kept himself in posi-
tion for a Sunday run with his
78, though Gentry's 74 has
him in control.
Clay Davis, currently in
third place in the division,
fired a 79 to show that he
could make some noise before
it's all said and done.
With the tight races and
stellar golf being played, the
Sertoma Junior Golf Tour's
season-ender is turning into
one grand finale.

GAMES
Continued from 1D
time memories and excitement.
And it has zero bearing on
me loving the game of baseball
and rooting for, cursing at, liv-
ing and dying with my Chicago
Cubs for the rest of my life.
Is that fact that an NBA ref
took payoffs and did his part to
effect final scores kind of wor-
risome?
I suppose, but any more than
six players receiving money
and doing their part to purpose-
ly lose a World Series?
Baseball recovered from
that, just-as all our sports will
continue on right past these
moments of debate.


Because it is the games
themselves that are our escape,
the love of the action on the
field, the memories of our own
playing days, the players we
held up as our heroes and the
teams we have always fol-
lowed.
The players and issues will
come and go, but the games
will always be there for us, with
these role players passing on
into memory or forgotten alto-
gether.
And then a whole new group
of heroes will emerge, as will
new villains, issues and contro-
versy for generations to come.
The sports will survive, the
games will endure and the peo-
ple most definitely will come.
