Reptilian Revelations


A baby gator can be born in the palm of your hand


as part of Gatorama's 'Hatch and Hold' program


News-Sun photos by KATARA SIMMONS
Gabriel Berovides, 3, of Port St. Lucie, helps Gatorama co-owner Allen Register, who was also holding the gator in the top
photos, hatch a baby alligator Wednesday at the Palmdale roadside attraction. After 65 days of incubation, the gators are
hatching and the public is invited to a "Hold and Hatch" which continue through Monday.

Port St. Lucie's Javier and Gabriel
Berovides, 4 and 3. gingerly held white
eggs bigger than their palms 'and con-
spicuously marked with a green stripe.
"The\ won't hurt you," Gatorama co-
ow ner Part\ Register assured Javier,
who appeared a tad more timid than his
younger brother, as the hatchlings C
emerged from their shells into the bo0 ,S
hands. "They don't have teeth yet. The\

Kaden Roberts, 2, of Sebring suf-
fered a bite from his hatchling but lived
to tell about the encounter that did little
.more than startle the pint-sized Steve
Irwin wannabe.
After incubating 65 days, the alliga-

season that reaches its peak during a
two-week period ending Monday. The
Registers Patty and husband Allen,
son Benjamin and daughter Erica -
incorporated the "Hatch and Hold" pro-
gram last year.
Javier, Gabriel and Kaden joined
other children and their parents at the
'roadside attraction on U.S. 27 in
Palmdale, 50 miles south of Sebring.
Allen Register's child-friendly pres-
entation of the egg-gathering process
enraptured his young audience as he
told the story of looking for nests.
"Even the most seasoned egg snatch-
er couldn't stop the excitement of find-
ing their first nest of the season," he


said, explaining that on one such trip he
and his son encountered a momma
gator none too happy to see them.
Ben Register held the maternal.alli-
gator at bay by tapping her snout with a
long bamboo rod. Having collected
more than 30 eggs from her nest, they
moved out and she moved in.
"She was unaware her eggs were
gone," Allen Register said, explaining
she would guard her empty nest for the
next two months.
They mark the eggs with a stripe to
ensure the eggs stay in the same posi-
tion during incubation, done at 90
degrees Fahrenheit and 100 percent
humidity which is also known as
"tomorrow's forecast" in central
'Florida.

2 arrested



in murder,



arson case
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun .com
SEBRING The Highlands County
Sheriff's Office announced Thursday after-
noon that two Avon Park men have been
arrested in the Aug. 22 murder of Bryan
Edward "Red" Fanning.
In a story first reported on newssun.com,
28-year-old Brandon William Johns, of 1780
Sapphire Road, and 36-year-old Arthur
Melvin Aul III, of 1769 Egret Road, were
arrested Wednesday evening. '
Johns was charged with first degree murder,
kidnapping, arson, grand theft auto and home
invasion, while Aul was charged with accesso-
ry to arsofi, grand theft auto, accessory to
grand theft auto and two counts of accessory
to home invasion.
Fanning was. found dead
Aug. 22 inside his burning
home at 3301 DeSoto City
Road.
Investigators early on in the
investigation determined the
fire was arson, and believed it
was likely set in relation to the Johns
murder.
A truck, also burned, from
Fanning's residence was found
later that day, n Frostproof.
An autopsy was performed
Thursday of last week, and
ihou2lih reler as hiidica-
tion of trauma to Fanning Aul
'before his death, the final deci-
sion on whether his death was caused from
injuries. before the fire or by smoke inhalation
depends on findings from a toxicology report.
"Wd also believe we will be making more
arrests," HCSO Lt. John Chess said. "More
people were involved, I'll tell you that."
Aul was easy to find, located at his resi-
dence Wednesday evening.
Johns however, was hiding out, Chess said.
Chess was hesitant to make any speculation
about whether or not the murder was drug
related.
"We still have a lot of people to talk to," he
said.
Fanning had a criminal history dating back
to 2003, when he was arrested for possession
of methamphetamine.
In connection with the death, Johns is being
held without bail, while Aul's bond was set at
$315,000.
Chess attributes the arrest of the men to tips
from the community.
"A number of people called in," he said.
The HCSO and State Fire Marshal officials
are continuing the investigation and further
arrests and charges are pending.
Persons with additional information who
wish to remain anonymous and be eligible for
a cash reward are asked to call Crime Stoppers
at 1-800-226-8477.


Court orders FEMA to give newspapers


addresses of people who sought help


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Philosophical
arguments about the "pros and
cons" of seeking government aid
for private problems abound on the
airwaves, in coffee shops and on
Internet discussion forums.
Regardless of one's position,
one thing is almost certain you
can have a reasonable expectation
of diminished privacy, as many
Highlands County residents
learned via a Federal Emergency


Management Agency letter issued
Aug. 17.
"We are writing to let you know
about recent court order that
directs FEMA to provide your
home address to the South Florida
Sun-Sentinel who sued FEMA to
get the information," the letter
said,' noting the same information.
also was solicited by The News-
Press in Fort Myers and Pensacola
News Journal both Gannett Co.
holdings. "We understand that
when you asked for help, you


expected that FEMA would protect
your privacy. However, we have
no choice and must comply with
the court's order."
The letter was sent to people
who applied for FEMA help in
eight states covering natural disas-
ters from 1998 to 2004. In Florida,
that includes Hurricanes Irene,
Charlie, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne,
Tropical Storm Bonnie, severe
thunderstorms, tornadoes and
flooding Feb. 12, 1998, Oct. 4,

Two more

grow houses

get raided
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun .com
Both active and inactive
marijuana grow house opera-
tions were shut down this
week in a Herculean effort by
the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office to keep the
drug off the streets.
Elizabeth Sanchez, 63, of
Sebring was residing in a
house on Cedora Terrace
when the HCSO served a
search warrant on "the house.
Inside the attached garage
of the home an indoor mari-
juana grow room was discov-
ered, reports stated. Fourty-
five live plants were alleged-
ly found in plastic pots, with
numerous 1,000-watt grow
lights and an additional air-
conditioning unit.
The 45 plants weighed
more than 125 pounds, carry-
Sing with it the charge of traf-
ficking marijuana.
A represen-
tative of the
power compa-
:'. ny was at hand,
estimating the
I value of stolen
electricity at
Hengison $16,000.
Sanchez was
charged with
grand theft over
$10,000, fraud
by tampering
with utility
services, pro-
ducing marijua-
na, trafficking
marijuana and possession of
narcotic equipment.
In the other case, HCSO
officials showed up after
what appeared to be a grow
operation whose crop had
already been harvested.
The only concrete evidence
came in the form of stolen
electricity, equipment used to
grow indoors, and 329 grams
of left over marijuana plant
matter, reports stated.
The resident of the home at
4961 E. Butler Road in Avon
Park, Kenneth Henigson,
allegedly makes a living by
selling plants from his back-
yard nursery.
The unattached garage
structure behind the house
was allegedly found to have
marijuana remains scattered
sparingly on the floor.
Further investigation of the
nursery turned up several
garbage bags containing
loose marijuana and marijua-
na plant stalks, the report
read.
Probable cause led to
Henigson being charged with
fraud by tampering with utili-
ties, as well as producing
marijuana, possession of mar-
ijuana over 20 grams and pos-
session of narcotic equip-
ment.

SEBRING What had
been a private tug-of-war
between the Highlands Senior
Center and the Lion's Club
spilled out into public view
Wednesday morning when the
police and press were called
to the Lion's building bn
Scenic Highway.
A small group of elderly
men and women, one in a
wheelchair and one on a
scooter, waited at the Lion's
Club doors. They claimed the
Lion's Club had locked them
out of their regular Senior

girl missing

News-Sun
WINTER HAVEN The
Polk County Sheriff's Office
is searching for leads into
finding a 17-year-old Winter
Haven girl, reported missing
by her family on Wednesday.
Robin Baker is described
as 5 feet tall, 85 pounds with
blue eyes and
brown hair.
She has a
mole on the
small of her
back.
When last
Baker seen, Robin
was wearing a
burgundy T-shirt, blue jeans,
flip flops, blue hoody and
carrying a green mesh bag
with big flowers.
If anyone has information
into Robin's whereabouts,
they are urged to contact the

formed regularly for the cen-
ter, he stored in the building.
Being a civil matter, the
police soon departed, and
unable to immediately contact
anyone with the Lion's Club,
the group of seniors followed
suit, moving to the Sebring
Hills Clubhouse for its meet-
ing.
But that left issues unre-
solved and unexplained.
The story that evolved
turned out to be complicated
and tangled, and having the
scale and drama of grand
opera.
Its telling here is based on
witness accounts, Lion's Club
meeting minutes, canceled
checks and letters provided
by participants.

Hyperbaric healing


News-Sun photo by KEVIN SHUTT
Aaron Molly, 13, of Sebring, takes a look at the comput-
er that controls a hyperbaric chamber at Florida
Hospital's Center for Wound Healing. Stephanie Molly,
Aaron's mother and Florida Hospital ICU nurse, took
him to the open house Thursday because they're certi-
'fed divers and she wanted to familiarize him with the
process for treating 'the bends' should he ever ascend
too fast. The wound-healing center has been open since
Aug. 4 and already has a waiting list, said center direc-
tor Sue De Santis. She expects to augment the two
chambers which simulate diving to 33 feet to facilitate
oxygen utilization with two more in the near future.

coupons, and other incentives
such as "BOGO" (buy one get
one at half price) to purchase
the donated items for less than
$100. With more than $1,000
in savings, she continues to
hunt for bargains.
Among the items donated
are shampoo, conditioner,
shaving cream, razors and
razor refills, hair brushes and
combs, multi-vitamins, dental
hygiene items, bath soaps,
depends, and feminine
hygiene items, all brand
names.
Diane's husband, Donny,


assists in the project by box-
ing and bagging the items and
loading their vehicles with the
heavy bundles to go to the
delivery point.
The Levitts are donating
items to the homeless veter-
ans at the Stand Down and'to
the needy veterans of
Highlands County in honor of
all the veterans in their fami-
ly, but especially in memory
of Bart Hartso, a cousin and
retired Army warrant officer.
Hartso served in Desert Storm
before his retirement. He
passed away this year of natu-
ral causes. He was a resident
of Alabama.
"All the males in the family
are veterans," Diane Levitt
said. "I think it's time we do
something for the veterans in
Highlands County."
Donny Levitt is a Vietnam
era veteran. They have one
son in Canada, and one son in
Royal Oak, Mich. An 86-
year-old uncle, from
Missouri, served in the Army
during World War II in the
signal corps and is said to be
the last of that group. A broth-
er-in-law, a Vietnam veteran,
was recently diagnosed with
cancer related to Agent
Orange.
Shopping for savings is
nothing new to the Levitts.
Their home in Michigan has a
basement with storage cabi-
nets specially built to hold

items that were purchased
using her bargain hunting
techniques. She sent an uncle
downstairs for a bottle of pain
reliever, directing him to the
correct area. When he came
back upstairs he remarked,
"You have a full store down
there!"
Here are some of the tips
from Diane Levitt that she
likes to pass along for other
savvy shoppers, Use manu-
facturers coupons, store
coupons, and store sales. Save
your store receipts to get
rebates or more coupons from
the manufacture or the store
chain. Read the newspaper


and newspaper inserts to get
the best deal for what you
need. Find the store discount
book, if they have one.
If you are fortunate to find
a "buy one get one free," save
the free one for a needy cause.
"It didn't cost you any-
thing, and somebody else
could use it." If they are out
of an advertised special, ask
for a rain-check. You will get
to purchase the same item
when it returns to regular
price for the sale price.
According to Joseph A.
Dionne, Highlands County
Veteran Services 'officer,
items to be donated to the


Stand Down or for the
Veterans Assistance
Committee of Highlands
County may be left at the
Highlands County Veteran
Services Office, 7205 S.
George Blvd., Suite 119,
Sebring.
Lap robes and slipper socks
made by the different crochet
and knitting clubs in the area
are donated to the veterans
hospital in Bay Pines.
Paperback books and new
puzzles are always welcome
by the patients. Quilting clubs
are working on quilted, lap
robes for the patients this
winter.


Missing in action Korean War soldier's remains identified


Special to the News-Sun
The Department of Defense
Prisoner Of War and Missing
Personnel Office announced recently
that the remains of a U.S. serviceman,,
missing in action for 57 years from the
Korean War, have been identified and
returned to 'his family for burial with
full military honors.


Sgt. Frank Bunchuk, U.S. Army, of
Medina, N.Y, was buried Aug. 9 in
Arlington National Cemetery,
Washington, D.C.
In November 1950, Bunchuk was
assigned to Company L, 3rd Battalion,
8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry
Division then occupying a defensive
position southwest of Unsan, North


Korea near a bend in the Kuryong
River known as the Camel's Head.
On Nov. 1, 1950 sections of two
Chinese Communist Divisions struck
the 1st Cavalry Division's lines, col-
lapsing the perimeter and forcing a
withdrawal. In the process, the 3rd
Battalion was surrounded and effec-
tively ceased to exist as a fighting


unit. Bunchuk was one of the more
than 350 servicemen unaccounted-for
from the battle at Unsan.

Defense Department's mission to
account for missing Americans, visit

SExtended hours

S scheduled at VA

medical centers


Special to the News-Sun
In order to provide more
health care for more veterans,
especially mental health serv-
ices, Secretary of Veterans
Affairs Jim Nicholson has
directed the 153 medical cen-
ters of the Department of
Veterans Affairs to keep their
doors open longer.
"'Illness doesn't follow a 9-
to-5 schedule," Nicholson
said. "I'm directing our med-
ical centers to provide
extended hours to ensure
we're there for the veterans
who have earned our care."
Although the extra hours
apply to many hospital-based
programs and services,
Nicholson said his latest deci-
sion was to ensure VA's more
than 9,000 mental health pro-
fessionals are available when
veterans need them.
VA operates the largest
integrated health care system
in the country and the
nation's largest mental health
program. About 5.5 million
veterans are expected to seek
health care from VA's nation-
wide system this year,
accounting for about 800,000
hospitalizations and 60 .mil-
lion outpatient visits.
In recent months,
Nicholson has announced a
number of initiatives to
improve mental health care
for returning combat veter-
ans, including the hiring of
suicide prevention cooidina-
tors for each medical center,
100 new adjustment coun-
selors for VA's 207 veteran
centers, and 100 new medical
center employees to serve as
advocates for the severely
wounded.
VA's mental health experts
will gather in Washington in
July for a four-day confer-
ence reassessing the depart-
ment's programs.

Private citizen resents
release of information
Editor:
*As one of the many home-
owners who inquired about
an after-hurricane loan from
FEMA, I am now informed
that our names and address
are to be made available to
an out-of-the-area newspaper,
namely the South Florida
Sun-Sentinel, for publication
and presumably, fodder for
hungry groups of home equi-
ty loan marketers.
I resent the implication by
that publication that our
information should be pro-
duced upon their demand;
although FEMA.stated that
the agency did everything in
its power to prevent this from
occurring (at least preventing
the Sun-Sentinel from pub-
lishing our Social Security
number). I fail to understand
why it was necessary for that
paper to insist upon gathering
this information. The purpose
was never clearly revealed in
the court case.
As a private citizen, I
strongly believe our
Constitutional rights to priva-
cy were violated. Our person-
al information given in the
course of a private transac-
tion is not a commodity and
does not fall under any levels
of need-to-know open public
disclosure without our prior
consent.

I did a bit too much

For four days I suffered
with pain in my back, hip

Unable to endure the pain

BEDELL
Continued from 12A
endorsed by the coolest ath-
letes, tasted super gross!
Then there was finding out
that it wasn't just bad luck
when you got only two
strawberry packets of instant
oatmeal in the variety pack;
there were always eight dis-
gusting banana packs!
And finally, discovery that
even after shoving my arm
down into a box of cereal
and feeling around for a few
minutes, when my parents
weren't looking, yielded a
toy that was only a cheap
miniature of what I had seen
on the front of the box.
It was after all that when I
realized there are horrible
people in the branding indus-
try that just despise children.
That toy-in-the-bottom-of-
the-box disappointment thing
was huge. First off, because
you had to spend a good 15
minutes convincing a parent
that you really wanted and
were really going to eat the
whole box of Fluffy Loops. I
didn't want'to eat any Fluffy
Loops, I knew from experi-
ence they were nasty. I just
wanted the toy! I had to have
that toy. It was the'perfect
toy for a boy like me. So I
promised. No, I didn't prom-
ise; I swore to cross my heart
and hope to die,'stick a nee-
dle in my eye, that I would
eat every last Fluffy Loop if
my parents would just please,
please, pleeease buy me that
box!
Of course once I got that
box home and began to rip it
open so that I could get that
toy at the bottom, I was
informed that no, I could not
stick my arm in the box and
dig out the toy. No, I had to
eat my way to it. Torture in


its purest form.
For a few days, I would
dutifully choke down bowl
after horrible bowl. All the
while though, I was devising
a great plan for getting that
toy without my parents
knowing. I had to be clever, I
had to be spy-like.
The plan came together
like this: I would come out to
the breakfast table and pour a
bowl. I would eat for a few
minutes and then when the
parents left, I would yell out
that I had to go to the bath-
room. I would race in, go to
the bathroom, or so they
would think. I would make
lots of noise, groaning,
splashing, etc. and then
flush. Then turn on the water
as a rouse that I was washing
my hands.That would give
me time to race out to the
table and shove my arm
down into that barf-fest of a
cereal, feel around and find
my reward for enduring that
breakfast of punishment.
In the end, my plan failed.
Parents were sooo much
smarter then; I don't under-
stand it.
My punishment was proba-
bly that I didn't get to keep
the toy, which turned out to
be a piece of crap anyway.
But the greatest punishment
of all was that morning after
morning after nightmarish
morning I had to choke down
that cereal until all 30
pounds of that family size
box were gone.
At least that is how I
remember it.

Ladies, value your'vehicle' and avoid being used


Would you give your new
BMW, Lexus, Hummer,
Mercedes or Range Rover.to
someone you just met for a
test drive? No! Why then
would you give up your body
on the first date?
This behavior shows how
little you value yourself, as
opposed to how valuable you
think your vehicle is.
Single women who are out
of a relationship should
spend time in discovery and
recovery, while ignoring the
"booty call." After the griev-
ing process, spend some time
with yourself, renewing your
mind, loving you, pampering
you, blessing you and pray-
ing for you. Then and only
then will you receive the
desires of your heart.
It's heart rending to see
how, as women, we allow
ourselves to be used by men.
I got a wake up call while
conversing with a mixed
group of individuals. It was
revealed that there are men
who use "sex to relieve
themselves like a bathroom."


Mwst1g


(Eeooh!) The thought of
being used as a disposal
made me want to throw up.
I admire the gross honesty
from this individual, as it
was quite an eye opener.
Many among us, without
consideration about the
implication, go in pursuit in
search of a "quick fix." Sex
was never intended to be
used as a form of recreational
activity.
As women we blame the
men for their actions. Stop!
We are responsible for facili-
Stating them'. If we didn't
make ourselves available,
they would not have had the


opportunity to use us as
depositories.
Low self-esteem, disre-
spect of self, poor moral con-
duct, neediness and family
traditions, (great grandmam-
ma did, grandmamma did,
mamma did) are contributing
factors. No one stopped to
take inventory from the past
to see the trail of destruction
thrown along the way.
Promiscuity, disease,
unloved children, fatherless-
ness, brokenness and finan-
cial woes are inheritances of
generational indiscretion.
We cai do something
about the lifestyles we are
living by turning our lives
over to our creator and
through the renewing of our
minds, we can be made
whole. It won't be an easy
process to eradicate old
habits, but it can be done by
choosing to make the right
decision.

quette workshops by e-mail at

AP's Elda Badillo

earns credential

for child care
Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Elda
Badillo of Avon Park has
been awarded a Child
Development Associate
Credential in recognition of
outstanding work with young
children.
The credential was award-
ed by the Council for
Professional Recognition in
Washington, D.C., which rep-
resents the ;early childhood
education profession.
CDA is the only major
national effort to improve
early childhood education
and care by.evaluation and
recognition of the skills of
individuals providing care.
The first credential was
awarded more than 30 years
ago and now 49 states plus
the District of Columbia
include CDA in their child-
care licensing regulations.
Parents who use early edu-
cation and care are especially
concerned today about their
children's welfare. With this
in mind, as part of the CDA
assessment process, every
candidate for the CDA
Credential is observed work-
ing with young children or
families by an early child-
hood professional. In addi-
tion, the candidate must
demonstrate the ability to
work with families to develop
children's physical and intel-
lectual capabilities in-a safe'
and healthy learning environ-
ment.
The CDA Credential is
having a positive effect on
the quality of early childhood
education and care. Its impact
is evident in center-based and
home visitor programs as
well as family child care, the
most common form of 'care
for children under 5 years
old.
Childcare staff and parents
wanting information on CDA
should call (800) 424-4310.

Where would

you be if...
While I was checking
out.the "Today in History"
Web site for Aug. 24, I
found myself wondering
where we would be if the
things that happened today,
hadn't happened.
(http://www.scopesys.com/
cgi-bin/today2.cgi)
SIn 1869, the waffle iron
was invented. I would defi-
nitely be a different person
if there were no waffles in
the world. I cannot abide
French toast. Likewise, .
prefer to not have gooey
stuff on my waffles. Just a
plain, warm, golden-brown
waffle that's not over-
cooked. Or, is that baked?
Thomas Edison changed
everyone's life on Aug. 24,
1891, when he patented the
motion picture camera.
What is your favorite
movie? Director?
Producer? Studjo?
The Panama Canal's
concrete started pouring in
1909 (http://www.canalmu-
seum.com/) and it official-
ly opened Aug. 15, 1914.
"The American expendi-
tures from 1904 to 1914
totaled $352,000,000, far
more than the cdstof any-
thing built by the United
States Government up to
that time. Together the
French and American
expenditures totaled
$639,000,000. It took 34
years from the initial effort
in 1880 to actually open
the Canal in 1914. It is
estimated that over 80,000
persons took part in the
construction and that over
30,000 lives were lost in
both French and American
efforts."
For those amongst us
who are dieting, you have
Chef George Crum of
Saratoga.Springs, New
York to thank for preparing
those first potato chips in
1853.
Amelia Earhart made
the first transcontinental
non-stop flight by a
woman in 1932. Also, on
this day in 1956, the first
non-stop transcontinental
helicopter flight arrived in
Washington, D.C.
One of the highs on this
date was in 1963, when
John Pennel was the first
to pole-vault 17 feet. One
qf the lows of this date
was in 1989, when Pete
Rose was banned for life
from baseball for gam-
bling.
The Alaskan Territory
was organized in 1912,
not-so-affectionately
known as "Seward's Folly"
when it was purchased
from Russia. In 1936, the
Australian Antarctic
Territory was created.
Speaking of real estate,
Delaware was awarded to
William Penn in 1632.
Then, in 1814, the British ,
sacked the White House in
Washington, D.C.
Lest you think it's too
hot here in Florida, heark-
en back to 1960 when it
was a minus (-!!.!)127
degrees F (-88 C), in
Vostok, Antarctica. That
set a world's record.
Imagine that!

'Resurrecting the Champ' an excellent way


to ring bell to start the fall movie season


Fall is approaching, mean-
ing the movies turn more
serious, introspective, and ...
well ... better in quality.
"Resurrecting the Champ" is
both serious and introspec-
tive, and it also happens to
be a surprisingly engrossing
film. In other words, the fall
movie season has begun.
"Resurrecting the Champ,"
which is based on a true
story, is about Denver Times
sports reporter Erik Kernan
(Josh Hartnett), who is going
nowhere fast in his career.
His fortunes seem to turn,
however, when he breaks up
a fight between a homeless
man and a group of college
kids. The homeless man,
called the Champ (Samuel L.
Jackson), tells Erik that he's
actually former boxing star
Bob Satterfield, who was
widely believed to have died
20 years earlier.
Erik sees this as a prime
opportunity for a career-mak-
ing story, and the Champ
agrees to be interviewed.
Erik's story is a major hit,
bringing him instant stardom
and fame. That is, until
everything falls apart thanks
to Erik's fervent desire to
believe in the story that he's
told.
Jackson, who is almost
unrecognizable as the old,
broken-down Champ, gives
an excellent (and Oscar-wor-
thy) performance that's dif-
ferent and believable. Yes,
Jackson is in basically every
movie ever made, but his
considerable talents are on
display in this film in a
unique way here.
While the title would indi-
cate that the main character
of the film is The Champ,
Erik is the true focus on the
story. "Resurrecting the
Champ" truly revolves
around Erik: namely his tense
relationships with his
estranged wife and combative
editor, his lingering hard
feelings about his deceased
father who deserted him, and
his intense desire to be a
good father to his 6-year-old
son.
Hartnett has earned a repu-
tation for being very emo-
ti6nless in his films, and
there's no evidence to dis-
prove that notion in this par-
ticular film. That being said,
Hartnett's quasi-emotionless
acting works very well here,
as it accurately portrays the
quiet torment that he's put-
ting himself through. Good

The characters of Erik and
'the Champ mesh together
quite well in this movie. Both
men suffered the aftereffects
of absent fathers and shat-
tered homes. Erik made good
of his life and became a jour-
nalist and a good father,
while the Champ went in the
opposite direction. But some-
how the duo's friendship :
brings the best out of them
both, even though it basically
ruins Erik's career in the

everything? It's a question
that's almost impossible to
answer, but it's a question
that Erik comes face to face
with. And that's the worth of
movies like these. These situ-.
ations,,while not always the,.,
most entertaining ones on
screen, are realistic and relat-
able. These movies make a
connection, which is one of
my favorite aspects of film.
This is a movie that I will
think about for a while.
This film made a connec-
tion in me that makes me
appreciate my family more
than ever, especially the
wonderful relationship I have
with my father. But the film
also shows that putting all
your trust in someone,
whether it's your father or a
homeless former boxer, just
isn't a good idea. As the
movie says, it's always hard
when your son finds out that
you're not Superman, that
you're not invincible. It's just
as hard when you're the son.


The bottom line is.
"Resurrecting the Champ" is
a very good film. It's well-
acted, with an interesting,
although sometimes melodra-
matic, plot. The film may
have been better served by
focusing more on the Champ
than Erik, but Erik's story is
interesting and touching, and
the character works just fine
as the centerpiece of the
movie.
Director Rod Lurie (who
also directed "The
Contender," an outstanding
2000 political film) shoots
his movies in a very taut
way, -with little extraneous
dialogue or meaningless sub-
plots to get in the way.
Characters and conflicts are
introduced like Erik's
tumultuous relationship with
his editor Metz (played by
the always-brilliant Alan
Alda) but never really
resolved.
But that isn't much of a
problem, since the larger
story is much more interest-.
ing; after all, who hasn't had
a run-in with their boss?
Overall, this is a watchable
movie that will make you
think while also entertaining
you.
And if this film is a sign of
things to come in this fall
movie season, then I can't
wait to see what's coming
next.

Rellon


Verlon's Spiritual'
Vitamin
Verlon Carrell

Don't we all?

(This week I want to share
a story that was shared with
me several years ago. What
an impact this story has on
our lives. The author of the
story is unknown to me.)
I was parked in front of
the mall wiping off my car. I
had just come from the car
wash, and was waiting for
my wife to get out of work.
Coming my way from across
the parking lot was what
society would consider a
bum. From the looks of him,
he had no car, no home, no
clean clothes, and no money.
There are times when you
feel generous, but there are
other times that you just
don't want to be bothered.
This was one of those "I
don't want to be bothered
times. I hope he doesn't ask
me for any money," I
thought. He didn't.
He came and sat on the
curb in front of the bus stop
but he didn't look like he had
enough money to even ride
the bus. After a few minutes
he spoke. "That's a very
pretty car," he said. He was
ragged but he had an air of
dignity around him. His
scraggly blond beard kept
more than his face warm. I
said, "thanks," and continued
wiping off my car. He sat
there quietly as I worked.
The expected plea for money
never came. As the silence
between us widened some-
thing inside said, "Ask him if
he needs any help." I was
sure that he would say "yes"
but I held true to the inner
voice. "Do you need any
help?" I asked. He answered
in three simple but profound
words that I shall never for-
get. We often look for wis-
dom in great men and
women. We expect it from
those of higher learning and
accomplishments.
I expected nothing but an
outstretched grimy hand. He
spoke the three words that
shook me. "Don't we all?"
he said. I was feeling high
and mighty, successful and
important, above a bum in
the street, until those three
words hit me like a 12-gauge
shotgun. Don't we all? I
needed help. Maybe not for
bus fare or a place to sleep,
but I needed help. I reached
in my wallet and gave him
not only enough for bus fare,
but enough to get a warm
meal and shelter for the day.
Those three little words
still ring true. No matter how'
much you have, no matter
how much you have accom-
plished, you need help too.
No matter how little you
have, no matter how loaded
you are with problems, even
without.money or a place to
sleep, you can give help.
Even if it's just a compli-
ment, you can give that.
You never know when you
may see someone who
appears to have it all. They
are waiting on you to give
them what they don't have. A
different perspective on life,
a glimpse at something beau-
tiful, a respite from daily
chaos, that only you through
a torn world can see.
Maybe the man was just a
homeless stranger wandering
the streets. Maybe he was
more than that. Maybe God
looked down, and realized
the man cleaning his nice car
needed to be ministered to,
so He sent help to him in the
form of a "bum." I needed
help ... Don't we all?

2006 Records
Avon Park 6-4;
Ridge Community 6-4
History
The Red Devils edged Ridge 14-
13 after routing them the year
before, Ridge's first, 33-0.
Last Week
Avon Park: Lost 38-0 at Lake 1
Wales.
Ridge Community:Topped state-
ranked Winter Haven, 21-14.
Coach Speak
Earnest Perkins: "Ridge has a
pretty good football team. We are
gonna try our best to match-up
with a team of that caliber. I am
looking forward to putting one in
the win column after last week's
game."


Open letters that should
have been written:

To whom it may concern,

I just wanted to issue this
statement as both an apology
and explanation of why I find
myself where I now am.
While I was growing up,
one of the things to do in my
area was to watch: dog ight-,
ing.
It was just something that I
got into when I was young,
much like football or hunting
for some kids who get started
at an early age.
Over time it became some-
thing I grew more and more
passionate about to the extent
that I wanted to be a part of it
more, put more into it.
That's why I did start to
train dogs, become more.
involved in staging fights.
When my NFL career took
off and I was able to do so, I
got more involved in buying
the dogs, training the dogs
and coming up with the best
fighters I could.
.With all my years of view-
ing, taking part. and enjoying
the spectacle of it, I knew
what it took to make a great
fighting dog.
I never realized that in
much of the country this was
something that was, so
frowned on.
I didn't know the extent to
which people made dogs a
part of their family.
It is now that I am starting
to get a sense of this that I am
vowing to learn more about it,
take a different look at it?
After I serve my sentence,
you can be assured I will be a
changed man, a more educat-
ed and caring man who will
have a better and more cam-
passionate understanding of
man's best friend.
Sincerely,

Michael Vick

Here's another one:

To whom it may concern,

To answer the obvious


2006 Records
Lake Placid 3-7;
John Carroll 0-10
History
The two teams have met 12 times
since 1963 with John Carroll
holding a 6-5-1 edge:The teams
last played in '94, with Lake
Placid winning, 46-13.
Coach Speak
Tim Grant:"They (John Carroll)
were pretty good a few years ago
but we're not really sure what to
expect.They were 0-10 last year,
but you can't really go off that.Their
JV was really good last year, they
beat Kings Academy out of Miami
and they've got some big kids. But
we're doing well, just a few dings
from last week and we have a
couple more players that will be
ready to go.We expect a pretty
good game and our players are
anxious to get out and play."


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne


questions and assumptions
flying around about my recent
traffic mishap, I wanted to
write an open letter.
As you know, the Chicago
Bears NFL franchise tagged
me with that 'franchise' label,
forcing me to sign a one-year
contract for a specific amount
of money.
I didn't like it at first, when
I realized how much more I
could possibly make else-
where.
But when I sat down and
thought about it, I said to
myself, "You know, $7.2 mil-
lion is an awful lot of money,
why not enjoy it and get out
on the field to help my team."
Part of my enjoying of the
contract was to spoil myself
with a really great, top-of-the-
line, state-of-the-art automo-
bile.
I mean, who wouldn't get a
Lamborghini if they could
afford it?
Well, the other night, yes, I
hit some clubs downtown and
had a few drinks.
Not too many, mind you,

Coach Speak
Jared Hamlin:"Last week's game
showed us we need to get better at
what we're doing. I know Martin
(County) is a tough team, but we did
have a really good week of practice.
We have a good plan, but we need to
execute. If we don't execute it will be
a long night."


hurt, and even when I discov-
ered I wasn't, the shock set in.
Suddenly. I was thinking to
myself how this would look,
so soon after my former team-
mate Tank Johnson screwed
up this great opportunity we
football players have.
I had a good buzz going,
and might have blown a .07
on a breathilizer, but I didn't
want to take any chances.
In that state of mind, in my
condition, I wasn't being
rational so I headed up onto
Devon Ave., called a friend
and he came and got me.
Looking back, it was a stu-
pid, silly way to react and I do
apologize for the confusion.
I. just hope you can under-
stand that we all do some stu-
pid things and that I have
learned a serious lesson about
getting behind the wheel even
if I've had just a few drinks.
Thankfully I learned this
lesson with nobody getting
hurt.

Yours Truly,

Lance Briggs

I mean really, who's advis-
ing these guys?
So much of what has driven
controversy and polarized
people in reference to these
cases is the evasive behavior,
the adolescent "I didn't do it,"
and then "Oops now you
caught me so I'll make excus-
es" mentality.
Be up-front, honest, admit
to your wrongdoings before
the hole you already dug gets
ever deeper and sullies you
even more.
Allow the public to see that
you're human, that you
screwed up (like we all have)
and that you're sorry for it.
We can all relate to that and
forgiveness would be so much
quicker in coming.
I'd be happy to bring some
common sense to such situa-
tions and be a public relations
representative for profession-
al athletes.
It's a booming business and
it doesn't seem anyone of
competence is currently in it.

This Sebring running back finds a seam in the line and heads upfield during the Blue
Streaks 19-13 win over Lake Placid in junior varsity football action Thursday night.


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Lake Placid
drew first blood late in the
first quarter, but the Blue
Streaks came back to win 19-
13 in a highly contested jun-
ior varsity football game
Thursday night at Fireman's
Filed in Sebring.
A blocked punt and a short
run gave the Green Dragons
an early lead.
With just 1:42 left in the
first quarter, a Lake Placid
defensive lineman picked up
the loose ball and scored.
Since turnabout is fair play,
a fumbled punt and a few
opportune penalitites gave
Sebring a chance to even
thescore.
Good defense held both
teams to just 7 points until
late iit the second 'quarter
when Sebring scored with just
twenty-seconds left to bring
the score to 13-7 at the half.

tips Avon

five game


thriller

By JOHN BEDELL
News-Sun Correspondent
AVON PARK---It was a
great night for volleyball
fans but at least one coach
thought that it added some
gray hairs.
In a see-saw contest, the
Sebring Lady Streaks edged
Avon Park in five games 25-
7, 14-25, 25-20, 18-25 and
15-10.,
"I told the official, Tony
Anderson, that this would
go five games," Sebring
coach Venessa Sinness said.
"Neither of these teams ever
gives up. It is such a rivalry
and it is so competitive.
"It was awesome. Both
teams went back and forth.
The momentum swung so
quickly."
Sebring got a momentum
boost in the first game.
After holding a narrow 5-
3 lead, the Streaks pushed
the margin to 11-3.
Hannah Shoop came up
strong at the net.
Avon Park fought back to
cut the lead to 13-6, but
Sebring rolled on to take a
25-7 win.
The lopsided loss only
served to motivate the Lady
Devils. Avon Park rallied to
take an 11-2 lead in game
two. Daija Barrett capped
the rally with a big hit that
brought the crowd alive.

See STREAKS, page 4D


Sebring


19
Lake Placid

13
Early in the third quarter,
Sebring began throwing the
ball in an attempt to circum-
vent the rush-stopping
Dragon defense.
Freshman Sebring quarter-
back Matthew Grubb showed
great versatility and a calm
head as he aired out the ball
for a 4 minute drive that led
the Streaks to another touch-
down, but the attempt to score
2 on the PAT failed leaving
the score 19-7 Sebring.
A blocked punt late in the
same quarter allowed Lake
Placid the position they need-
ed.
Lake Placid quarterback
Kirk Veley's thirty-three yard


pass brought the Green
Dragons back into the ball
game.
With two minutes left
bringing the score was now
19-13 Sebring with plenty of
time for another score.
A solid Sebring drive led to
a fourth quarter fumble off a
Grubb twenty yard pass that
allowed the Dragons to recov-
er the ball for a touchback,
ending the hopes of a last
Sebring score.
A late Lake Placid posses-
sion with bad field position
off the touchback, forced
Veley to air out the ball.
But a fourth down and ten
interception ,by Sebring took
all the fire out of the Dragons
leaving the final score 19-13
Sebring.
Next up for the Sebring
junior varsity is a Ineeting at
Frostproof Thursday, Sept. 6,
while Lake Placid faces Avon
Park at home.

Lake Placid swimmers douse Frostproof in season opener


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID The Lake
Placid swim team won both
the boys and girls side of
Tuesday's meet at home ver-
sus Frostproof in impressive
fashion to start of the season.
Contributions to the wins
came from throughout the
Green Dragon rosters of each
team with notable perform-
ances from a few individuals.
Senior Michael Wilkes took
two individual first place fin-
ishes one in the 50-yard
freestyle'with a time of 24.18
seconds and another in the
100-yard butterfly (1:04.89).
Wilkes also added to a win-
ning relay team, combining
with Shane Stayer, Zach
Lavoy and Robert Greene to
win the 200-yard medley
relay in a time of 2:00.03.
Stayer and Lavoy teamed
up later with Kevin Smit and
Andrew Morrison to win the
200-yard freestyle relay while


Lavoy added an individual
win in the 100 breaststroke
and Stayer picked up another
in the 100 backstroke,
The Lady Dragons saw two
individual 'wins by Marbelly
Creel and Danielle Rivers.
Creel edged out teammate
Chelsea McGuire in the 200
individual medley by less
than three seconds, before she
finished the 100 butterfly in
1:17.75 to nip another team-
mate, Shelby Lambert, by .79
seconds.
Rivers earned lier solo wins
in the 200 and 500 freestyle
and she also lent a hand in
two relay wins.
The senior joined Creel,
Tammie Beach and Lambert
to win the 200 freestyle relay
with the same quartet also
topping the field in the 400
freestyle.
Such multiple contributions
from a, pardon the pun, pool
of strong swimmers bodes
