300 in jury pool

opens Tuesday

matt.murphy@newssun.com
WAUCHULA The first-degree-mur-
der trial of Michael Branham is set to
begin Tuesday in Hardee County. Bu it's
not yet clear if it will end there.
If a fair and impartial panel of 12 jurors
and two alternates can't be found in
Wauchula, the trial will move to Bartow
and will most likely be
delayed until November
because of a packed Circuit
Court docket.
So with the importance
Sof Tuesday's jury selection
obvious, Hardee County
Branham Clerk of Courts Hugh
Bradley will be doing his
part to ensure 'a jury can be picked by
sending out an unprecedented 300 sum-
monses 200 for Tuesday ard 100 (if
necessary) for Wednesday. But just
because that many people are called does-
n't mean that many people will show up
Tuesday morning.
"To assure' a sufficient number of
jurors, we summoned 200 people for
Tuesday, with the idea that we would get
approximately 80 people in the court-

Individually, standard solar cells don't create much energy. To be productive,
many cells are wired together in a structure known as a module. The collective
current produced by grouped modules (panels) can generate useful amounts of
electricity.

THE PROCESS
Silicon wafers have a positive P-type layer and a negative N-type layer.
These help establish an electrical flow. As photons, in light strike the silicon
wafers, energy is absorbed, causing electrons on the outer shell of the silicon
atoms to become excited and "jump" free.
As space becomes available on each atom, other electrons from "full" atoms
jump in to fill the void, and a current is established.
The flow of electrons through the external circuit creates a DC electric cur-
rent. The current can be converted to AC and used or stored in batteries for
later use. -MCTgraphiclinfriiatlioni

Each house in the Stone Ridge development will feature ten
solar panels on the roof that can collect up to two kilowatts
of energy per hour. The panels collect the energy and send
them to a circuit-breaker in the garage. The panels, which
cost around $25,000, will be a feature of each home in the
development.

receives the third-highest
amount of sunlight of any
state in the United States, yet
only two solar-powered hous-
ing developments exist
statewide. Sebring's Stone
Ridge development is the sec-
ond and largest of the
two.
The decision to make the
community into a solar-pow-
ered one was made in July.
Phil Rupert and Kristin
Matthews are working to sell
the homes in the Stone Ridge
development, and'they say 20
units have been sold so far.
However, most of the pur-
chasers were made before the
solar conversion, Matthews
said, and adding solar-pow-
ered homes was just "icing on
the cake" to them.
The Stone Ridge develop-
ment, on Ben Eastman Road
between Lakeview Drive and


the Sebring Parkway, will
have 188 single-family units
in a gated community. Base
home prices will run from the
low to high $200,000s, with
10 different floor plans rang-
ing from 1,864 to 2,591
square feet.
Each homeowner will
receive 10 solar panels to put
on the roof. The set of panels
cost around $25,000 per
house, which will be included
in the price of the home.
However, due to state and
federal rebates, the customer
will receive a $10,000 refund
for the panels. The panels are
built to withstand winds up to
140 mph.
The solar power is sent
through a pipe to a system
known as "the brain," which
is located in the garage. The
solar energy is pumped down
through a pipe into the sys-
tem, which first charges a set

AVON PARK The City of
Charm will once again attempt to get
tough on code enforcement.
City council members Monday
night gave City Manager C.B.
Shirey the go-ahead to find a special
magistrate and seat a code enforce-
ment board in yet another effort to
hear more cases and obtain quicker
results.
The idea of a special magistrate to
hear code enforcement cases is not a
new one. The city launched an
unsuccessful effort two years ago to
locate somebody that could fill the
post and help clear the massive
backlog of code enforcement
actions.
Shirey did some research and.

pened Aug. 25.
Addition, Rocky Ellingsworth will ask
nty commissioners Tuesday to approve
ue fees.
he board approved tournament fees sever-
'eeks ago, but asked staff to return with a
structure that addressed concerns about
urging for practice.
ased on the county's fiscal calendar,
ngsworth is suggesting a $25-per-person,
year fee for softball.
he complex has a multi-use field, two soc-
fields and a football field. Based on avail-
ity, these fields are free to use, including
neighborhood children.
availability is first-come, first'-served and
ends on the 'hours of operation,, which
ngsworth said Friday haven't been set. For
time being, his groundskeepers show up at
m. and leave at 4:30 p.m. But the gates are
ing open later because the football field is


in use through 8:30 p.m.
If approved, Ellingsworth said he's formu-

Cards.
For )outih leagues, Ellingsworth and the
Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee are
recommending $500 per season, which
includes practices, regular- and post-season
games, but not officials.
Adult leagues will cost $350 per team,
which includes officials, regular season
games, and "may" include a league tourna-
ment. Daytime softball leagues would be sub-
ject to a $100-per-team fee andt officials
wouldn't be supplied.
Tournaments such as the one that imme-
diately followed 'the Aug. 25 dedication and
first pitch by Commissioner Edgar Stokes -
will pay $40 per team.
"It went very well," Ellingsworth said of the
first tourney. "Many of them said they're look-
ing forward to coming back."
The next tournament is set for Saturday.
An organizing meeting for the fall softball
season is scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept.
18, at the. Highlands County Agri-Civic

Council exploring enforcement board to speed up process


came up with the special magistrate
concept following a report by Avon
Park Code Enforcement Officer
Donald Simmons on the pedestrian
pace of trying to move code enforce-
ment cases through the court system.
While the city was successful in
all the hearings, the judge heard only
a half dozen cases.
Simmons said in the meantime,
several times that a number of com-
plaints had been filed and were
working their way through the sys-
tem building yet a larger backlog.
The paltry number of cases heard
by the court came because Avon
Park's code enforcement actions
were placed on the docket and heard


after traffic court proceedings.
Shirey said in seating a code
enforcement board there are several
areas of expertise that needed to be
represented.
"We're looking for people with
experience in contracting or archi-
tecture. We also need somebody for
the business community, an engineer
and realty," he said.
Statutes also call for all members'
of the proposed seven-member board
to live inside the city.
Shirey said he hoped to get the
board seated and operational as soon
as possible.
Reportedly, a couple of citizens
already have expressed interest in


participating.
Being sought as for the special
magistrate is Lake Placid attorney
Pamela Karlson, who has been han-
dling those duties for the county
since early this spring, conducting
business twice a month at the
Highlands County commission's
chambers.
"The first is a public hearing, then
another time when I review uncon-
tested files and issue my orders
based on the citation information,"
she said.
However, Karlson does not have
the final say in the matter. Residents
who are unhappy with the ruling still
may take their argument before the


county judge.
Shirey said he has contacted city
attorney Gerald Buhr about drawing
up a potential contact and will send
that to Karlson along with a copy of
the city's code enforcement statutes
for her to review.
"Mr. Buhr is working on the con-
tract language and of course we'll
have that approved by the city coun-
cil before we forward that to her," he
said.
He said the plan is to have it ready
to go by the time the council meets
again Sept. 10.
At their Monday meeting, council
members* poured over several out-
standing code enforcement issues,
including the longstanding problems
with the building located at 101 W.

Avon Park man arrested for

sexual battery of teenager


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt,@newssun .con
AVON PARK Cook
Electric owner and former
youth football coach Noah
Wesley Cook was arrested
Wednesday for sexual battery
of a minor.
Cook, 38, of Avon Park
reportedly had more than 50
sexual encounters
spanning two years,
according to the
alleged victim, who is
still a minor.
"The victim stated
that the last instance of
... intercourse occurred
on the'night of Aug. C(
22," Det. Robert Neale
said in his report.
While investigating, Neale
interviewed two witnesses -
one a friend of the alleged
victim who reportedly sdw
sexual acts between Cook and
the girl.
Another witness, known to
the victim and the defendant,
said Cook approached her
Sunday about the investiga-


tion that began Aug. 25,
Neale said.
Cook was denied bond for
the sexual battery accusation
because'he was already out on
a $1,000 bond pending an
aggravated assault with a
deadly weapon charge.
On April 16, he allegedly
shot a 3-inch, 1-ounce shot-
gun slug toward his
ex-girlfriend's step-
S brother.
S Randy Earl Miller,
29, told Neale he and
Cook were arguing
S about Mary J. Yates,
22. Yates is Cook's ex
ook and Miller's step-sis-
ter.
Neale's report doesn't indi-
cate what the men were argu-
ing about. As Miller left
Cook's property, the latter
allegedly fired the slug at the
former's feet to force him
away. Miller said Cook
walked toward him with the
gun pointed at him. Cook
denied this account;, but
admitted to the warning shot.

Tennessee in July. She suffered a number of injuries (right),
including head injuries and shattered bones.

Johnston suffered head injury, broke both
arms as result of July wreck in Tennessee


News-Sun staff reports
SEBRING Woodlawn
Elementary School fifth-
grade teacher Brenda
Johnston is. getting a bit of an
extended summer break.
Johnston was involved in a
biking accident while vaca-
tioning in Tennessee in July,
about a month before she was
return to her classroom.
The accident didn't involve
another vehicle. Instead,
Johnson made too quick of a
stop on her bike and flew over
the handlebars, coming in
contact with cement at what
she describes as "at an impact
of approximately 30 mph."
Johnston broke her right
funny bone, shattered the left
funny bone, tore and
stretched the tendons and lig-
aments in her arms, chipped
her front teeth,, which contin-
ue to bleed internally, and had
a closed head injury.-She also
suffers from post traumatic
stress syndrome.
She said she also suffered
through a month of drug
interactions, seizures, short-
term memory loss and.person-
ality changes. It wasn't until a
month after her accident that
doctors determined that a
closed head injury and possi-
bly traumatic brain injury had
occurred, she said. Her recent
MRI and other tests show no
sign of brain injury at this
time, she added.
To date, Johnston said 70-
plus insurance claims have
been filed. She is optimistic.
Her seizures have stopped,
short-term memory is slowly
improving and improvement
in general is being seen on a
daily basis.
Physical therapy was start-
ed last week. Johnston said
one doctor reminded her not
to be discouraged by the con-
stant pain that keeps her from
sleeping much because things
are improving.

lished to assist the family at

Special to the News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE The
Florida Public Service
Commission on Thursday
acknowledged Aqua Utilities
Florida's Notice of Voluntary
Dismissal of its application
for an increase in water and
wastewater rates.
As a result, Aqua must
refund all revenues collected
under the interim rate
increase, with interest.
While the total amount of
the refund cannot be deter-
mined at this time, the poten-
tial refund of revenues and
interest is approximately
$1,054,412. This amount is
based on an estimated seven
months of revenues being col-
lected from the approved
interim rates.
Aqua filed its application in
December 2006, requesting a
total increase of $4,249,358
for its water systems and
$3,048,935 for its wastewater
systems. In accordance with
Florida Statutes, the
Commission granted an inter-
im rate increase which
became effective on April 12.

The commission is required to
process interim rate requests
within 60 days of the filing.
In its decision, the commis-
sion also adopted an agree-
ment filed by Aqua, the
Office of Public Counsel, and
the Attorney General of the
state of Florida whereby the
company will voluntarily
reduce its rate base by
$50,000 for the commission
regulated utility systems. In
the agreement, Aqua commit-
ted to adhere to commission
rules regarding billing, meter
reading intervals, and timely
responses to customer com-
plaints.
The company will also hold
town hall meetings in all of its
service areas. The commis-
sion believed that Aqua's cus-
tomers are better served
through the adoption of the
agreement.
The commission conducted

Dyce


Colley


As his career developed, it evolved
steadily to the financial side of the busi-
ness.
With focus on a specialization in
financial planning and investment advi-
sory, he completed the certified financial
planner professional education curricu-
lum from the College for Financial
Planning in Colorado.
He has been with Colley Financial

He emphasizes his complete independ-
ence, citing the absence of any commis-
sioned relationship with a brokerage or
insurance company.
Dyce grew up and spent most of her
career in South Florida. She worked
mainly for Hollywood Saving Bank,
which had offices in Dade, Broward and
Palm Beach counties, managing increas-
ingly more responsible branches
throughout the region.

tion with Seacoast National Bank's Lake

assistant vice president with the bank.
"The management team of Seacoast
National Bank. believes in community
involvement," Dyce said.
"I found that the chamber of com-
merce educated me about the community,
gave me an opportunity to meet great
people from all walks of life, aided my
business and provided a stage from
which to give back to the community.
"I was active in each chamber, serving
on various committees, and was treasur-
er and served on the executive board of
the North Dade Chamber of Commerce."
Currently, Dyce is an associate mem-
ber of Lake Placid Board of Realty, a
member of Highlands County Builders

the chamber.
She is a graduate of the Highlands

May also reported that Kerry
Thompson, Heartland National Bank will
remain as the treasurer of the board, and
Kim Miller, Happiness Farms, will
remain as secretary. Pamela Karlson will
sit on the board as past president.
May said, "A very special thank you to
Vicki Spires, past president of the board,
Highlands Independent Bank, for her
dedicated service to the chamber over the
past years."


E-mail phishing aimed at


DoD banking customers


Special to the News-Sun
Customers of the
Department of Defense
Community Bank and other
institutions providing finan-
cial services to Department of'
Defense military and civilian
personnel were recently tar-
geted with e-mail phishing
campaigns that attempted to
gather personal and account
information.
The e-mail presented itself
as originating from the
"Military Bank of America"
and asked recipients to click a
link to update their account
information because of an
update of Web site features.
According to Bank of
America officials, the e-mail
was fraudulent and the site
has been shut down.
"Alert customers reported
this e-mail to the bank and
another. fraudulent site is
closed for business," Pat
Shine, Defense Finance and
Accounting Service deputy
director for operations, said.


"But these phishing cam-
paigns continue to be a con-
cern and as soon as one fraud-
ulent site is closed, the phish-
ers have opened a new one.
From our own online servic-
es, such as myPay, to the
services offered by our con-
tractors, security of customer
personal and account infor-
mation is our highest priority.
This latest attempt to lure
customers to give up this
information is a great
reminder that security is
everyone's responsibility.
"Remember, legitimate
businesses will not send you
an e-mail asking you to go to
a Web site to confirm or
update account information.
When you receive an e-mail
like this, delete it," Shine
said. "You are not being
specifically targeted. The
suspects spam this e-mail
message to a large number of
e-mail accounts in an attempt
to convince unsuspecting vic-
tims to respond."

TRIAL
Continued from 1A
room," Bradley said, adding
that normally 40 percent of
those summoned actually
report for jury duty.
Bradley summoned the
additional 100 people for
Wednesday, in case the first
200 weren't enough, and he
hopes to get 40 people to
show up then.
Although the task of pick-
ing a jury appears daunting
because of time and partiality
factors, Bradley said picking
impartial juries in Hardee
County has not been very
hard in the past.
"It has not been difficult at
all," he said. "I think Hardee
County people are just as nor-
mal as they are in New York
City."
At the Aug. 20 change of
venue hearing in the case,
Judge Michael Hunter said
the anticipated two-week
length of the trial would cre-
ate financial hardships for
potential jurors, making them
unable to serve. The large
amount of publicity surround-
ing the case might also create
difficulties in jury selection,
although Hunter said the
financial issues would be the
more pressing issue.
But Bradley said the two-
week trial length might not
necessarily prevent a jury
from being selected, citing a
civil trial that occurred in the-
county two years ago.
"We have had one other
trial that would be close to as
lengthy as Branham," Bradley
said. "We had no problem
picking a jury then."
Hardee County juries are
normally comprised of six
people with one alternate,
Bradley said, adding that
there has never been a high-
profile case such as the
Branham case tried locally in
his 11 years as Clerk of
Courts.
"Most of the judges that
come through expect that if
\.e ha e 25 prospective jurors
Sin -the courtroom, we-would
have Siough for -iroutine
trial," Bradley said.
But this case is different.
Branham, a former Avon Park
police officer, is accused of


MURDER
Continued from 1A
interview.Saturday.
"They actually helped us.
Tips from the community
with a little bit of knowledge
came together to help us."
The specific cause of
Fanning's death' remains
closely-guarded intelligence
that will be used to determine
who knew what and when, as
two or three more arrests are
anticipated.
Some neighbors near
Fanninrg's trailer at 3301
DeSoto City Road, where he
was found dead and pulled
from his burning home, said
gunshots prompted them to
call 911 before they sensed
the fire.
Chess said Johns, Aul and
Fanning were acquaintances.
"The know him; everybody
knows everybody," he said.
% Johns was arrested for car-
rying a concealed weapon, a
"short-barreled gun/rifle," in
six years ago in August 2001,
according to court records. A
judge found him guilty dur-
ing a non-jury trial.
He was arrested again June
13 .this year, but a count of
"possession of a firearm or
weapon as a convicted felon"
was no billed July 5, meaning
the state chose to not pursue
the allegation.
Aul pleaded no contest to
possession of methampheta-


killing his wife, Avon Park
attorney Janette, in 2005.
Although Michael and Janette
both worked in Highlands
County, they lived in Hardee
County, and local coverage of
the alleged murder was
intense.
At the change of venue
hearing, defense attorney
Lawrence Shearer argued that
media coverage biased
Hardee residents against
Michael Branham, and said
the relatively small popula-
tion of the county made it eas-
ier for rumors and gossip
about the case to spread.
State Attorney Steve
Houchin argued that Hardee
County citizens had a "right
to participate in the criminal
justice system," and added
that a relatively small per-
centage of the population was
exposed to the media publici-
ty.
Hunter agreed with
Houchin, but said if a jury
couldn't be picked in Hardee
by Wednesday, the case
would have to be moved.
Because of his packed sched-
uled of first-degree murder
cases, the earliest date for a
rescheduled trial would be in
early November. .
Jurors will report at 8:30
a.m. Tuesday, where they will
be administered an oath. After
that, the courtroom will open
to the lawyers and public, and
selection will begin.
At the change of venue
hearing, Hunter said it
"wouldn't take long" to figure
out if the extra 100 people
would have to be called in.
Bradley said he agreed.
"We'll know by Tuesday
afternoon if there's going to
be a need for those additional
people," he said.


HARDER
Continued from 1A
inspection period. The inspec-
tion period would start when-
ever the city signed the con-
tract, which could be as early
as Tuesday's meeting. The
Sebring Hospitality Group
offer calls for a 30-day due
diligence 'period, while the
Macartney and Associates
contract features a 60-day
period.
After the due diligence
period, the owner would then
put up an additional
$150,000, and the property
would have to be closed with-
in 60 days. Other than the dif-
ference in the length of the
inspection period, the terms
of the contracts are identical.
I Neither contract stipulates
a change from the property's
current mixed-use, 12 unit per
acre, zoning, although the
new owner could approach
the city's Planning and
Zoning Commission and ask
for a zoning change.

The City of Sebring could approve the sale of Harder Hall as early as Tuesday night's city

Florida Highway Patrol Trooper P.
Miller said Smith failed to yield to
Valerie Conklin. His report indicates. no
charges were filed. Conklin didn't have
any traffic controls at the path. Her
"Stop" sign was at the junction with
Hammock Road.
The bike and pedestrian path that
extends between U.S. 27 and the
Hammock Park entrance is well-marked

he's "still receiving several

Neither contract is valid

requires council approval.
The council can choose to

the other as a "backup plan,"


At the time of Smith's accident, the
signs were at each intersection except
where he crossed Hope Street. On
Saturday morning, fresh dirt surrounded
a shiny new metal pole crowned with the
uniquely-sized stop sign.
Eddie Cardona, Highlands County
Traffic Operations Supervisor, said the
sign was installed early Saturday when
he received word the intersection lacked
one.
"Until we get a phone call, we don't
know (signs are missing)," he said,
explaining his department is mobilized
within the hour when notified.
He wasn't previously aware a sign was
missing at Hope Street, which he pre-
sumed was due to vandalism.
"Somebody wanted a souvenir,"
Cardona said, explaining a similar inci-

The sign at Hope Street wasn't the first

Around 2 a.m., Cardona received a call
that a stop sign at the intersection at

needed replacing due to an accident.

SEBRING If you've never heard the
words "Cafe con leche y pan con bistec,"
chances are you have been missing the uni-
verse of taste buds indulgence that is
Caribbean cuisine.
It is a sad thing indeed, but one easily
resolved for Caribbean food is abundant in
Highlands County. Furthermore, in this uni-
verse of dazzling flavors and delightful
sweets, a brand new star emerged last week
when Nelli's Caf6 opened its doors to the pub-
lic.
Nelli's Caf6, located' on U.S. 27 South


across from Alan Jay Kia, is owned and oper-
ated by the Salgueiros, a local Cuban family
with a taste for quality and an apparent deter-
mination to make their customers feel at home.
As you walk in the door, you are greeted by
Nelli herself or another member of this pecu-
liar family and from that moment on, you sim-
.ply become a welcomed guest in a traditional
Cuban home.
"We like to treat our customers the way we
would treat our friends if they came over for
dinner to our house," Nelli Salgueiro, co-

campaign
Special to the News-Sun
The general public lives
in an ever-increasing vir-
tual world.
We bank online, pay
bills online, shop online,
earn a degree online, even
date online. Often we
think that the greatest risk
for falling victim to iden-
tity theft lies in such high
tech environments.
But to a thief, it doesn't
matter if we shop online
or at the local market.
They can just as easily
steal your personal infor-
mation from your garbage
can as they can through
fraudulent e-mail.
There are hundreds. of
ways and thousands of
products on the market
that promise to help con-
sumers reduce their risk,
but the best and most
effective way to avoid
becoming a victim is sim-
ply being aware.

The small and cozy restau-

steak, fried chicken and
shredded beef as well as a
wide variety of Caribbean
sandwiches, fruit shakes and
delicious Cuban desserts, all
available to be enjoyed in the

When asked about the
peculiar American inclusions
in an otherwise Caribbean

said, "Our traditional Cuban
food celebrates our Cuban
culture, but Nelli's Caf6 is
also about celebrating the

Cost reductions. A lot of
this will have been figured

Employees can be very diffi-

preserve the business and the
jobs of those you retain.
Review every expense and
eliminate anything that is not
absolutely necessary to the
turnaround.
Doing all this while keep-
ing the business going is very
hard work. It requires a
belief in the process, and a
great commitment of time
and energy. If it saves a busi-
ness that otherwise would
have failed, it is well worth
it.
For the business that is not

to be drifting in the wrong
direction, a number of the
techniques above can be
adopted for good results.

TUFFLEY
Continued from 9A
Dyer, it turns out, was born
to fish. His father, Corben
Dyer, was a guide and tour-
nament fisherman before
him, his brother fishes pro-
fessionally, too. and now his
son is following in his foot-
steps.
When most babies are
being handed pacifiers, Dyer
said, his dad handed him a
fishing rod. He fished his
first tournament when he was
12.
"Take my arms away from
me," he said, "and I'll fish
with my teeth."
Dyer, who was born in
Kentucky, often vacationed
in Central Florida with his
family who came here to
fish. They came so often and
had such good results they
ended up moving here just to
fish more.
In the years since, 15 as a
guide, Dyer has come to
know Lake Istokpoga like the
back of his hand. At 6-foot-5,
he can walk across most of it.
"I've won a ton of tourna-
ments, a lot of checks off this
lake," he says. "There's a
spring classic on Lake
Kissimmee coming up in
September. I'm going to be
fishing for the first prize, a
$40,000 boat."
Dyer doesn't count on
luck.
"For the classic I'm going
to do my homework and fish
the lake the week before. I
want to find fish in as many
locations as I can. It's real
important to practice. It will
be the only chance to win.
"We're only fishing against
the fish," he added, "not
another person. It ain't me
you've got to beat you've
got to beat the fish. That
means you need to know
where they are."
Which is why, when it is
allowed, he spends so much
time exploring a lake prior to
a tournament.
It's one reason Dyer holds
down the two other jobs; they
allow him the ,flexibility to


have the time, and they pro-
vide a source of financing.
It's expensive to tourna-
ment fish professionally, he
said, even though much of
his equipment comes from
sponsors. For example, it
costs $100 just for the gas
and oil to run the boat for
one day.
But tournament fishing has
come a long way in the last
10 years he adds, and purses
are getting larger. Some day
he hopes to support himself
completely by fishing. He
said Niemi already could if
he wanted to, he's that good.
Dyer has spent a lot of
time observing fish behavior.
"I try not to fish in front of
my shadow," he says, and he
looks for a sandy bottom near
vegetation.
Good, clean water is fine,
but if it's a little brackish it
can help as the fish can't see
so well.
Knowing the fish also
helps.
Bass sometimes hit soft,
Dyer said. "It's the bite you
don't feell" He has learned to
watch the vegetation. If it
shakes even a little bit, he
immediately jerks his line to
set the hook. "I've won more
than one tournament that
way," he said.
He takes into account that
bass move during the day,
seeking shade and the right
temperature water. That
means they move from the
shallow shoreline, where they
feed at night, out to the deep-
Ser water and beds of pencil
reeds, cat tails or lily pads
during the day. Fish the
fringe, he said, that's where
they wait for dinner to pass
by.
On Istokpoga, he prefers
flipping his line to casting.
Casting doesn't give the con-
trol, for one thing, and with
bass in vegetation you have
to land the lure in front of
them. That means a fish can
be near and yet too far away,
so he picks a spot and fishes
it methodically, his wrists
and rod in constant motion.
On the subject of hydrilla,

James Dyer has spent 15 years as a fishing guide and been
a tournament fisherman sice he was 12. Here he fishes on a
hot summer afternoon on Lake Istokpoga in Highlands
County. The lake is famous for the large number of trophy
bass to be found there. A hot dry summer has made fishing
on Lake Istokpoga more of a challenge. Dyer caught one and
a half fish, the half being a two pounder that threw its hook
and escaped in mid-air. This specimen (left) was slightly
smaller.


Dyer was of two minds. In
general he isn't fond of it.
Growing from the lake bot-
tom up, it poses real prob-
lems for boaters.
S"Shift into reverse and
blow the intakes out," he
said, explaining a method of
protecting an outboard
engulfed by the feathery
green stuff.
Another nuisance are the
gnats that hang out over
hydrilla beds when the wind
isn't blowing.
Still, Dyer admits that a,
little hydrilla is good for
fishermen because fish will
hide out in its shade.
If the day is getting on and
nothing has been biting, Dyer
will work a hydrilla bed,
often with good results. This
is when he counts on his
global positioning system to
get him back to where he's
found fish in the past.


His father, Dyer jokes, is
such an old timer, he doesn't
rely on newfangled gear like
GPS equipment, but draws an
X on the side of his boat
when he's found fish instead.
With laid-back jokes like
that, and landing a fine fish
- which was remarkable
given the high summer tem-
peratures and shallower
water, drawn down to help *
Broward and Miami-Dade
counties the morning went
by all too quick.
But like all good fishing
stories the memory will last
forever.
So thanks to my publisher
and editors, a story like this
makes up for black water and
steam presses.
To get in touch with Dyer
call 699-9676 and leave a
message.

The stupid stuff young men do


If you have been around
the male of our species when
they are between the ages of,
say, 13 and 23, you know
that good number of them
are somewhat lacking in what
I call "the common sense
gene."
You may know what I'm
talking about. Boys and/or
men of this age range seem
to engage in behavior that
normal people find danger-
ous, if not downright stupid.
Take bungee jumping as an
example. A normal person,.
one who values their limbs
and skull, looks at the
prospect of tying a rope to
their ankle and jumping off a
high platform and laughs.
They laugh because it sounds.
so stupid they can't think of
anyone in their right mind

who would do such a risky

You can add skateboarding
to the list too. And skydiv-
ing. I'm not saying girls
don't do stuff like this, but
the vast majority of those
who do stuff like this happen
to be guys.,At leastas far as I
can see.
It's not just stupid danger-
ous things that these kids do.
(Yes, I understand that if you.
are over 18 you are techni-
cally an adult. I'm 49, and so
all those in the age range I'm
specifying are kids to me. If
you don't like it, wait until
you're 49 and see how you


feel about it then).
Think about it. What are
boys in this age range known
for? Insurance companies
shudder when these guys get.
behind the wheel of a car.
They have lightning reflexes.
and are willing to do things
such as try to get through a

on doing things sich as sand-
ing:.jhe .over of a Dave Barry
,beok,while in shop class.
(Note to John's friends: I bet
you think I forgot about that
incident. Ha ha.)
I bring all this up because
it seems this age range has
picked up a new stupid thing
to do. And a dangerous one,

Clinic helps fill void, not solve
the healthcare problem
Editor:
I have lived a privileged life. I have
never been without health insurance or
access to health care. We always expect-
ed our employers to provide us with
health insurance at a reasonable cost.
That is no longer true.
The cost of health insurance is unrea-
sonable for many working families. A
young couple that I know wants to start
a family but can not afford the $600 per
month for family health insurance cov-
erage.
Many working folks can not afford, or
are not offered health insurance but are
too "wealthy" to qualify for Medicaid
and not old enough for Medicare. They
are people with diabetes and high blood
pressure. They are sick people who can
not afford the cost of an office visit or
the cost of prescription drugs. Some are
children. They are our neighbors, our
children, our friends. Uninsured people
have no access to regular health care.
For people with chronic conditions
like diabetes regular doctor visits are
essential to prevent complications.


'Freedom of the press is a flaming sword! Use it

justly ... hold it high .. guard it well.'

Slogan for 'Big Town,'CBS radio series, 1937-1952


Diabetics can not test their blood sugar
level without strips for the machines.
Strips are expensive, around $50 per
month and there are no programs to
help with the cost. Some prescription
assistance programs from the drug com-
panies charge up to $40 per prescrip-
tion. Without regular care, people devel-
op complications some of which are life
threatening. The only option is the
emergency room. Frequently, intensive
care is next. The cost is enormous.
I am a volunteer with Samaritan's
Touch Care Center. This new medical
clinic serves the uninsured without
access to health care. Generous people
give their time and skills. Dedicated
people find resources to provide health
care. Each client is treated with dignity
and compassion.
What a blessing to see people leave
with the care they need and with a
smile. This is a wonderful service to
Highlands County. The problem of unin-
sured families remains, however. It is
time to uncover this problem and
explore creative solutions.

Jeb Bush to blame for state's
education system woes
Editor:
The editorial on finding an inspired
education chief stirred all sorts of com-
ments and concerns. Finding a candidate
"outside the box" brought to mind the
very path our "education governor," Jeb
Bush, followed to our current education-
al status.
Gov. Bush's policies drove thousands
of experienced teachers out of Florida
or their profession. His later effort to


obtain math and science teachers with
bonuses ("bribes") led to about 30 per-
cent of faculty teaching out of field, the
very antithesis of sound educational phi-
losophy, plus the "90-day wonders."
It would also be ironic that the people
he put in charge of the system would
choose the next secretary of education,
the very body politic that led to the cur-
rent crisis. The old sophism, "If you
don't learn from history...," can spring
to life again as did the phoenix.
A number of educational principles
were violated these past eight years.
"Teaching the whole child" was a basic
goal 50 years ago when I began my pro-
fession. Instead, the number of subjects
focused on in Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test and No Child Left
Behind narrowed the focus to three or
four. That policy might be dropped if
Bush's team is retired. Teaching to the
test was a "no-no" 50 years ago, but it
is a common practice today.
The suggestion that a non-educator
could be a better choice because she
will "think outside the box" is curious.
Need the editorial board be reminded
that non-educators have been -determin-
ing educational policies and selecting
programs for 50 years? Does anyone
remember new math? The last person
consulted about teaching methods and
educational programs is the teacher; yet,
it is the teacher who makes the most of
those choices by modifying policies and
programs, or dropping them altogether.
"Education governor" Jeb Bush actu-
ally reduced state support for education.
The 70-year-old policy of formulating
funding for school districts large and
small, rich and poor, provided the basic

driving.
The weather men, or
women, in central Florida
seldom have to work very
hard to predict the weather.
"Seventy two and sunny,
dropping to 67 overnight,"
they would say. Same thing
almost everyday.
Some weather persons, I
guess you say persons, I was
never sure about that whole
non-sexist language thing,
try to spice it up by giving a
five-day forecast.
"On Tuesday the high will
be 72, with 67 overnight.
Come Wednesday, the high
will be 72 with a drastic low
of 67." That kind of stuff.
Some stations have gone
to bikini forecasts. A bikini
forecast is where some
young lady wears a bikini
and tells you that it will be
72 and sunny, dropping to 67
overnight.
I guess it sounds more
important if you are in a
bikini. I don't know why a
radio station needs a bikini
forecast, but they do.
Friends from outside the ;
state sonmeres ask me
about hurriapes. Hurricanes
are exciting, at first, and then
they are really inconvenient.
Not to make light of the
situation that happened in
New Orleans, but all that
wind and rain gets kind of
boring after 21 hours or so.

foundation that all public
school students had the
opportunity of a good educa-
tion and pursuit of the
American Dream. That has
been "modified" to provide
funding for private schools
and tax breaks for corpora-
tions. What happened to the
$13 billion Gov. Lawton
Chiles gained for children,
funds for education and
health care for the very
young? ...
Another thought: Gov.
Crist produced an Executive
Order No. 77-07 in response
to the Virginia Tech
University massacre with the
goal of establishing commu-
nication and coordination
systems to alert various agen-
cies when troubled children
are transferred from one
county to the next, the uni-
versity systems would have
records on troubled students.
At the same time, two bills
were prepared for the state
legislature: truancy and bul-
lying: Even though this exec-
utive order illustrated several
major crises at high schools
in Florida and Colorado, the
legislators perceived no con-
nection between Crist's pro-
gram and those two crises
(truancy and bullying) occur-
ring on kindergarten through
12th grade campuses across
this state. Those two bills
were summarily dismissed.
Bullying has been a signif-
icant problem for genera-
tions, but teachers and
administrators have turned
their heads because of our
litigious society, even though
truancy is a significant con-
sequence of bullying ...
Tragically school boards
must go the whole nine
yards, to the Supreme Court
to protect the schools. This
costs litigious students and

parents little, but it costs the
taxpayers millions. Those
two bills would have updated
state laws on handling the
current issues. Today, the leg-
islature is considering elimi-
nating law suit insurance for
teachers. Who will address
the bullying and truancy
issues?
One final thought: In 1964,
the faculty at Miami-Dade
Community College failed 50
percent of students in the
English Department. This
caused an upheaval. It also
caused a modification in the
curriculum. Developmental
courses ("Remedial" was a
caustic term) were formulat-
ed to bring students up:to
college level. At least a
dozen departments had their
own developmental classes.
Whereas, the graduation rate
was 10 percent prior to 1964,
it rose to 20 percent, 25 per-
cent, etc., later. Statistics
revealed that students gradu-
ating from M-DCC fared just
as well or better upon trans-
fer as students who started at
the universities. In 1965,


when I called the community
college a revolving door
rather than an open door
institution, I was thoroughly
castigated, especially by the
administration; however, the
tide has changed.
Incidentally, M-DCC was
selected as the No. I commu-
nity college in the U.S. in the
mid' 1970s.
As noted, that Tribune edi-
torial caused much comment
and concern.

Lakes belong to people
Editor:
I was very upset to hear of
the closing of Lake Denton to
the public. The lakes of
Florida belong to the people
of Florida and of the United
SStates and not to the elite and
privileged group of home-
owners who are wealthy
enough to own lakefront
property.
I am amazed, but not sur-
prised by the hypocrisy of the
county to close the access to


a well-lovdd public lake,
which people from outside
Highlands like to visit, after
hearing constantly how they
want suggestions from the
public about how they might
find ways to bring people in
from other places to visit and
seek recreation here.
Highlands is a county full
of beautiful lakes with no
good place to swim. Lake
Jackson is' good for boaters
but is not very clean. The
homes that surround these
cleanest, most historic lakes -
Denton and Tulane should
be given very strong restric-
tions for preventing house-
hold use of lawn fertilizers,
pesticides, etc., because these
rare pristine lakes are a very
valuable public resource. If
noise, or other illegal activi-
ties are a problem then the
police should patrol the area
as they would any other pub-
lic use areas.
Most people who use the
lake are not engaged in any-
thing illegal and it is not fair
to punish law-abiding citi-
zens for the actions of a few


rowdy teens. Our young peo-
ple have few enough venues
of free recreation and deserve
to have access to our coun-
ty's most valuable natural
recreation sites. The county
should create a public beach
on Lake Denton, with white
sand beaches and access for
swimmers, divers and small
boats.
This is the way to high-
light what is most beautiful
about this county, the rare
and delicate Ridge ecosys-
tem, which includes these
lakes and the sensitive natu-
ral environment that is still
left for the people who live
here and for those who want
to visit here to scuba dive
and enjoy our county's
resources.

Things to share about
state of affairs
Editor:
I am somewhat encouraged
by the results of some of our
organizations that are work-
ing to correct some of the
things that are taking place in
our nation. Some are convert-
ing from the Lesbian lifestyle
among other things. We do
have a number of legal
organizations that defend
pro-bono where people need
help.
The ACLU has managed,
so I understand, through a
loophole in the law to use tax
money to support their cause.
How wrong!
I do feel prayers are being
answered. We still have a
long way to go.
Democrats are pushing for
socialized healthcare, giving
amnesty to the immigrants
and giving them Social
Security benefits when
they've only worked a short
time among other things.
They contend that this is
what the American people


want; I don't know where
they're getting their informa-
tion from.
I don't think any of us
want the immigrants treated
unfairly, but when we allow
anyone to disregard the law,
we soon won't have any and
that will be chaos. I recently
listened to a panel of both
Democrats and Republicans
discussing a bill that had
recently been passed, so,
Nancy Pelosi contended, but
before the discussion ended,
,it became obvious that the
bill had passed several times
before, but instead of acting
on it, Nancy was contending
that they had eventually won
a victory.
Immigrants do need to
come legally and be screened
to keep terrorists out, etc. and
have requirements that
should be adhered to; of
course, we have to have a
limit so we can continue the
life we are preparing for.
That's to their advantage as
well as ours. When they
become citizens, they will be
entitled to the same things as
the rest of us.
I am praying for wisdom
for these who are dealing
with this problem that it will
be resolved according to
God's will. Many of them are
hard working people who
want nothing more than a
way toprovide for their fami-
lies. It is truly a sad situation.
I do feel God is at work; we
need to continue to pray that
he will send us Godly candi-
dates and give us the wisdom
to know how to vote.
May we each be serious
about the needs of our coun-
try and indeed, the world.
May God give us the wisdom
to know how to pray.
May He be our daily coun-
selor, guide and keeper. May
we be obedient to Him in all
things.

Continued from '12A"'
For the rest ofthe time, you are trying to
decide what to do because the cable is out.
It's usually too hot to sleep. I like to sleep at
64 degrees:
We do have the most spectacular lightning
here, not like lightning in other parts of the
world.
Lightning in Florida jumps from cloud to
cloud apparently for no reason. It's called
heat lightning.
It happens on those nights in the summer
when it is really hot during the day, but the
evening it.starts to cool, usually to 67. Then
the night sky lights up and the clouds
exchange flashes. It is a spectacular show.
Theie is almost always a slight breeze.'
I used to live in Kansas while I was attend-
ing college. Now there is some weather.
"The high today will be 62, and the low
tonight will be minus three degrees with a
wind-chill of.minus-10." That was actually,
one forecast I remember. It doesn't snow


much it Kansas; it's too cold. It's mostly ice
and wind.
A meteorologist friend of mine from
Florida used to come to Kansas to chase tor-
nados. I don't know why. It is kind of like
our neighbor's dog who used to chase cars.
He didn't knowv what to do if he ever caught
one.
I usually tried to avoid tornados myself. I
guess I didn't want to be that person inter-
viewed on The Weather Channel.
Some places, I hear, have beautiful foliage
in the fall. Palm trees don't have much
foliage. The trees here are almost always
green, but sometimes they are shaped to look
like animals. I guess it's because they don't
turn colors.
When I was a kid, I do remember it snow-
ing here-in central Florida. Not a real snow, it
was kind of a wet flaky snow. Not good for
snowballs. I do remember I had to walk to
school that day. Uphill both ways.

Continued from 12A
though not to themselves.
Here's how it goes. A guy
pulls up to a fast-food drive
through. He orders a large
drink. When he gets it hand-
ed to him at the window, he
shouts, "Fire in the hole!"
and flings the drink at the
person manning the drive
through. Then, having
recorded the incident, he
drives off laughing like crazy
and uploads the video to
Youtube.
Apparently at least one
group of kids took the prank


a step further and spiked the
drink with hot sauce before
throwing it..Mature, huh?
Funny? May.,, to a guy
with his common sense
turned off. Funny to the
employee who has had ice
and soda thrown into their
face? I don't think so.
Plus, let's talk about how
stupid the kids are being by
filming themselves. You can
sometimes see the face of the
person throwing the drink.
Then this is uploaded where
others can see it like
maybe someone who knows
who the person in the video
is. Makes it nice and easy for
the cops.


And make no mistake. The
cops are: after people pulling
this. If they get caught, they
get charged. And if they still
live at home, they get to
explain the whole thing to
Mom and Dad.
But I know they will some-
day get theirs; More likely
than not, these young people
with the common sense
shortage will become parents
themselves one day. If there
is justice, that will be all the
revenge we need.

Back to school is about
more than school supplies,
new clothes and a return to
familiar routines. It is also
about good times, social gath-
erings and renewing acquain-
tances. But for parents of
teens who drive, or ride with
new teen drivers, it is also a
time of concern.
Nearly 6,000 teens are
killed and approximately
300,000 injured in automobile
crashes each year. In fact,
teenage drivers have the high-
est crash risk of any age
group and the problem is
worst among 16 year olds,
who have the most limited
driving experience behind the
wheel.
To help keep your teen
driver safe regardless of the
season, Allstate suggests that
you consider the following
guidelines for safe driving:
Put a limit on the number
of passengers in the car..Teens
- are likely to have more trou-
ble focusing on the road with
laughter, music, food and
other distractions, all of
which increase with the num-
ber of passengers.
Establish and enforce a
house curfew. Check with
your local police department
to see if your town has a cur-
few. for minors. If not, set
your own.
Insist that your teen and
his or her passengers always
use seat belts. Teens tend to
wear seat belts less often than
other drivers. Remind your
teen that the presence of
airbags does not mean he or
she can ignore seat belts.
Make sure your teen
keeps the cell phone turned


off. Teens may love talking
on the phone, but doing so
while driving is a dangerous
distraction. Talking on a cell
phone can give a teen the
reaction time of a 70-year-
old.
Limit or supervise your
teen's driving during times of
high risk. In 2005, the highest
number of fatalteen driving
accidents occurred on Friday,
Saturday and Sunday. Also in
2005, one-half of teen crash
deaths happened between 9
p.m. and 9 a.m.
Set driving area limits. If
your teen wants to travel out-
side your town or city, require
that he or she request special
permission.
Prohibit driving or riding
with others under the influ-
ence of drugs or alcohol. Your
teen should know that you
will always be willing to pick
up him or her rather than have
them risk driving after they
have been drinking or riding
with a driver who has been
drinking. Consider revoking
driving privileges for a period
of time if your teen places
himself or herself in these
dangerous situations.
For more information about
safe teen driving and statis-
tics, visit www.allstate.com/
citizenship/foundation/teen-
safe-driving.aspx or a local
Allstate agent office to order
resources such as the Drive it
Right: Talking to Teens about
Safe Driving DVD or pick up

TOY SAFETY


Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop

Thankful

for work

Labor Day weekend
always signaled the begin-
ning of school when I was
growing up in New Jersey.
I'm not sure if the timing
is still the same.
Even though Indian
summer was right around
the corner, my closet held
some new fall clothes I
couldn't wait to wear. I
liked school, so the idea of
going back after a summer
vacation wasn't.a problem
for me.
Though Labor Day is
designed to celebrate the
workers in our nation, it
came at that time when
school children also would
begin their new labor. After
all, school was our 'job.'
We were responsible to
be there on time, to give
attention to our studies, to
do our homework and pass
tests. In this way we devel-
oped into people who
could walk into the future
with a measure of confi-
dence and skills to offer
our society. We were to
become the celebrated
workers honored on Labor
Day.
We are so privileged in
the United States to be able
to get an education. Yet,
often students today look
with disdain upon having
to go to school. They miss
the point that many chil-
dren around the world are
not given that privilege;
and, therefore, remain' pris-
oners of poverty and hope-
lessness.
Education and work is
honored by God. It is not
to replace him. But, it is
given to us that we might
fulfill our purpose on earth
and be fulfilled.
Though we may com-
plain sometimes about hav-
ing to go to work, those
who have lost their jobs
know the void not only
financially, but in their
own sense of worth -
when their work is taken
from them. We were
designed to work and be
accomplished in it.
God demonstrated that
he is a worker when he
created the world and all
that is in it. He demonstrat-
ed the need for rest in the
midst of the satisfaction of
a job well done.
"In the beginning,'God
created the heavens and the
earth," says Genesis 1: 1,
NKJV. It follows in
Genesis 2:1 after creating
for six days that "on the
seventh day God ended his
work which He had done,
and He rested on the sev-
enth'day..."
God set the example that
we should work with dili-
gence, creativity and excel-
lence. But, he also showed
us that work must come to
an end and we must rest.
So on this Labor Day
weekend; let's remember
as students, professionals
and 'skilled laborers, to
work heartily as to the
Lord. With the attitude that
God is our ultimate boss,
our outlook on our school
work and our jobs will
reach a higher standard.
Then deserved rest and
recreation will rejuvenate
and replenish us for the
work ahead. So, have a
blessed Labor Day holiday.
Selah

The Ridge we live on is special and in need of protection


Many people may not know that
much of Highlands County is part
of the Lake Wales Ridge, which
runs about 100 miles down the cen-
ter of Florida. Most of the Ridge is
less than 10 miles wide, so a good
portion of it is very near to U.S. 27.
Now this may not seem like an
important fact to you, but perhaps if
you knew more about this unique
place, you would appreciate the
value of the ridge you live on.
The Lake Wales Ridge is very
unique because hundreds of thou-
sands of years ago it was actually a
group of islands rising above the
ocean that covered what is now
Florida. These areas have a much
higher elevation, approximately 300
feet above sea level, than the rest of
our state. Another value of the ridge
is that the sandy soil allows the rain
water to drain into the Florida
aquifer, which is our main source of
drinking water. The ridge is made
up of scrub habitat, which houses
many rare and unique plants and
animals that can be found no where
else. In fact, of these, 19 species of
plants and five species of animals


are federally protected.
It is said that the first inhabitants
of the Lake Wales Ridge were
Native Americans from about
8,000-9,000 years ago. The use of
the land increased several thousand
years later when the area became
more inhabitable and lakes began to
form. It is believed that the Native
Americans that lived on the ridge
did not farm or raise animals, but
lived off the land.
Today, the ridge is still home to
many unique species such as the
Florida scrub-jay, sand skink,
gopher tortoise and the Lake Placid
scrub mint, an endangered plant,
which lives only in a small area
near the town of Lake Placid. As
most of you know, the scrub-jay is a
unique bird that can only survive in
the scrub habitat. They depend on
the food sources of the area for
their existence. In addition, these
birds are family oriented and
depend on scrub for their territories
for past and future generations.
Unfortunately, about 85 percent
of the Lake Wales Ridge has been
developed. The high elevation and

Watershed

sandy soils have
attracted devel-
opment of many
kinds. Citrus
groves, cattle
ranches and resi-
dences have dot-
ted the ridge over
the years. i
The good news
is that many
agencies have
recognized the
value of this area
and have taken


steps to conserve some of the
remaining land. As stated above,
protection of many of the rare and
endangered species has been imple-
mented. Recreational activities such
as hiking, biking and picnicking are
available in certain areas of the pro-
tected land. Many organizations and
governmental agencies are involved
in the protection of this unique area
of Florida.
Still, there is much to be done if
we want future generations to enjoy
the ridge. Since so many 6f the
organisms cannot survive else-


where, it is critical that we take
steps to continue to protect and con-
serve them. Threats to this ecosys-
tem exist and steps must be taken to
resolve them. Some of these chal-
lenges include continuing develop-
ment and destruction of the natural
areas. In addition, the ridge is a fire
dependent plant community and as
a result of the development, fire has
been eliminated from most of the
areas. Because natural fire no
longer occurs, the once healthy
plant community has been compro-
mised and vegetation has accumu-
lated in areas making a catastrophic
wildfire more probable. In addition,
many of the food sources for the
species that thrive there are no
longer available because fire
dependent plants need to be burned
occasionally to produce.
Another problem that faces the
ridge is the introduction of exotic
plants, which will choke out the
native species and cause much dam-
age to the natural environment;
We cannot leave everything to the
organizations that have made such:
tremendous efforts to protect this


area. There are steps each of us can
take to assist such as:
Don't plant exotic plants in your
area and remove those that are
already there; even though you may
not think that those species can
affect the ridge, exotics generally
spread rapidly and can be propagat-
ed by animals and wind.
Be educated and informed about
your local environment. Keep up
with what your local government
and other agencies are doing about
this area. Make your voice heard on
issues concerning natural areas such
as this.
Get involved with volunteer
agencies and environmental groups
regarding the conservation of the
ridge area.
For more information on how you
can protect and conserve the natural
resources in your area, please visit

swcd.org/ or call 402-6545.

events this month. Both are
for the public to take part in,
but one is a special celebra-
tion.
Women with Issues, an out-
reach of the ministry, minis-
ters to the needs of these
women and all people regard-
less of theirrace, creed, color,

of all cultures. Together, the
ministry and Clark-Sheard

energetic and upbeat and
extends itself even to the
younger generation. Her
daughter, Kierra "Kiki," has
her own album and is one of
Karen's backup singers.
Clark-Sheard is one of the
original Clark sisters and is
known for her song "Balrp in
Gilead" and if you need a
balm or a healing, get your
ticket today, Pastor Barbara,
Robinson said.
Robinson said this concert
is dedicated to women with
issues, the disabled, those suf-
fering from abuse, domestic


violence and other issues.
Tickets are $25 at'the door
and $20 in advance. In con-
junction with the Travailing
Women workshop/luncheon at
Inn on the Lakes, tickets are
$30. Call the outreach center
at 873-6778 to purchase tick-.
ets or stop by any ticket loca-
tion.

Michael and Patricia Hatcher met while shopping in 1994.
She is legally blind, he is legally deaf. Originally a Georgia
boy, Mr. Hatcher moved to Highlands County with his par-
ents and graduated from Avon Park High School in 1980.
Mrs. Hatcher is an Avon Park native. She has lived there all
of her life except for the nine years she attended Saint
Augustine College for the Blin also graduating in 1980.
The Hatchers married in 1~99.


by the Christian community,
and are "helpers" to the'
churches.
Patricia Hatcher plays the;
percussions and keyboard and
she sings. She lost her vision,;
in one eye; wearing a pros-
thetic eye, due to a history of(,
abuse at an early age. Michael
Hatcher is legally deaf.
Friends and family \x ill join
together to help the Hatchers
celebrate their anniversary on,
Saturday, Sept. 29, but sever-
al businesses have already
joined in to help with the cel-
ebration.
Alan Jay Automotive has,
given this couple ar free lim-
ousine ride to their favorite


restaurant Homer's. Their
meal has been paid for by the
ministry. A hotel room has
been donated for this effort by
the Inn on the Lakes; Publix
-has given this* couple their
favorite cake, a yellow cake
with thick white icing; and
photography will be done by
"Pops" Robertson.
These are all efforts of the
community to show this'cou-
ple that charity begins at
home and then spreads
.abroad, something Robinson
preaches.

Avon Park Library sets Sept. dates for film series


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK -
September's slate of foreign
films to be shown at the Avon
-. Park Public Library honors
those that have won presti-
gious international awards. All
have English subtitles: two in
French Canadian, one in
Spanish and one in German.
All movies are shown at
noon on Saturdays.
Sept. 8 "The Sea
Inside," directed by Alejandro
Amenabar in 2004, 125 min-
utes. Based on the true story of
quadriplegic Spaniard Ramon
Sampedro's decades long
struggle with the Spanish gov-
ernment to allow him to end
his life with dignity, the film is
far from being a dry recount of
that legal experience.
Javier Bardem's sensitive
portrayal brings forth
Sampedro's humanity and
capacity for love in circum-
stances that may seem to deny
their existence.
This Oscar and Golden
Globe Best Foreign film win-
ner is more than worth the
time viewing it. The rating is
PG-13.
Sept. 15 "The Decline
of the American Empire,"
directed by Denys Arcand in
1986, 102 minutes. In
Canadian French with English
subtitles.
Providing the first half of a
unique cinematic experience
this film centers.on the con-
vening of eight intellectual
friends in the country for a
dinner where preprandial dis-
cussions center on the trivia
that many intellectuals find so
stimulating including their sex
lives. The same discussions
are carried over the dinner as
well.
There is no rating, but at
least an "R" is deserved for
mature adult themes.
Sept. 22 "The
Barbarian Invasions," directed
by Denys Arcand in 2002, 99
minutes. In Canadian French
with English subtitles.
Remy, the pompous
Montreal history professor.
from the previous movie, has
aged and become even more
rigid in his views. The social-
ist mien that he wears as a
badge has alienated him from
his extremely successful capi-
talist son. Remy is discovered
to have inoperable cancer.
The moving story is of the


reunion with his son and his
friends from the earlier film.
The film's, simple human
touch is enormously appeal-
ing. It is "R" rated tor -lan-
guage. ;e\ual dialoeue and
drug content.
Sept 29 "The Li\es of
Others." directed by Florlan
Henckel \on Donnersmarck in


2006, 155 minutes. In German
with English subtitles.
The film won the Oscar for
Best Foreign Film in 2007.
The real question is \vwh It did-
n't \\in the Oscar for the best
film overall It is a startlnglgN
engrossing film.
The store. centers on the
East German Secret Police


(Stas;i in the regime's declin-
ing days. Surveillance is
launched, of a noted dramatist
b\ a Stasi commandant
becajLse the commandant
desireI, the damatist's
actreN c' irlfriend.
This is a \.onderfull\ real-
ized film Rated "R" for some
sexuality and nudit\.

Our carefully constructed fences help build children into responsible citizens


Our son couldn't wait to have a
fence installed around his big back-
yard so his brown Lab, Bella, could
be set free to run.
Without the fence, they had to
keep her tied on a long leash
because they couldn't trust her not
to run away. Unfortunately, even on
the leash she got into trouble dig-
ging.
At last, the fence went up. Now
she could release that pent-up ener-
gy safely.
But, her previous doggie habits
were not so easy to break. Even
with all that room to roam, she dug
holes and could sneak out under the
fence or invite the neighbor dog in
to play.
One day, in frustration, his wife


took Bella's face in her hands and
looked her-in the eye. Motioning to
the fence she said, "We did this for
you." But, Bella just wagged her tail
and persisted in her antics.
Perhaps if she had grown up with
the boundary from when she was a
pup, she would have become used to:
it. Instead, she's developed some
destructive habits that will take per-
sistence and time to break.
When our babies come to us all
innocent, helpless and tiny, we can't
imagine them needing boundaries.
But', it isn't long before they begin.
to push the limits placed around
them for their protection.
First it's their crib; then the
playpen. Before we know it, the
playpen gives way to a larger gated


area and then to the gate across a
doorway or stairway.
Within these boundaries they'
learn security for themselves and
respect for their parents. Imagine.if
we let a toddler crawl wherever he
wanted. Injury would surely follow.
Once our children begin attending
school, those fences of protection
are widened again. Yet,.they're still
not given liberty to go anywhere or


do anything measuring their free-
dom by their ability to be responsi-
ble, dependable and respectful.
I remember a time when our
youngest son said, "I can't wait
-until my birthday next year." He
named the things he would be able
to do like his older brothers.
But we were quick to remind him
privileges and responsibilities went
hand in hand. It wasn't simply a
matter of age.
One of the things we are taught in
Scripture is not to exasperate our
children. We answer to a higher
authority and must not be unreason-
able or expect them to know the
boundaries without teaching them.
That's the first part of Ephesians
6:4, NIV. The second part should


stop us in our tracks. "Instead, bring
them up in the training and instruc-
tion of the Lord."
We are responsible to God for
how we direct and teach our chil-
dren. We exasperate them when we
don't surround them with the securi-
ty of knowing who God is and what
he expects.
* By building strong fences from
their youth and enlarging those
boundaries a little at a time, they'll
grow to be responsible citizens who
demonstrate godly virtues.
Carefully construct those fences.

Wildcats get win for new coach Price


News-Sun staff reports
WAUCHULA New era,
same result.
In their first game under
new coach Tim Price, the
Hardee Wildcats picked up
right where they left off last
season, strolling to a 20-7 win
over North Fort Myers Friday
night.
Price, who is originally
from Avon Park, got a solid
performance from his defense
and some big plays by senior


Jordan Grimsley on offense to
lead the way to his first win as
a head coach. The Wildcats,
who haven't lost a regular-
season game at home since
2001 and have won 53 of their
last 54 regular-season games,
limited the Red Knights to
just 102 rushing yards on 33
carries and 179 total yards.
Price said the Wildcats
made up for being small on
the defensive front by work-


ing on the speed of the line-
men, which paid dividends
Friday night.
Speed also worked on
offense for the Cats, who took
the lead for good when
Grimsley outran the defense
for a 32-yard touchdown in
the second quarter.
The Cats jumped out front
7-0 on a 9-yard run from
Jayquan Gandy and Jose
Castandeda's extra-point kick

The Red Knights got back
to even when quarterback Bo
Billman found Eddron
Thompson for a 13-yard TD


pass early in the second quar-
ter, but the Wildcats didn't
need long to retake the lead
on Grimsley's long run.
Grimsley put the game out
of reach in the fourth quarter,
scoring from 4 yards out after
lining up at quarterback, for a
20-7 lead with 9:37 left in the
game.
The Wildcats, who had
their preseason game can-
celed by lightning, didn't
seem at all rusty, racking up


207 yards on the ground on 34
carries, led by 78 yards on
seven carries by Grimsley.
Gandy had 63 yards on 14.
carries, while Jimmy Cimeus
added 49 yards on eight car-
ries.
Hardee hooks up with long-
time rival Ft. Meade next
Friday night at Wildcat
Stadium.
The Wildcats beat the
Miners 31-10 last season.


Friday


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

Understanding

one's limits

Is there any doubt the foot-
ball season is upon us?
While the pro's wound up
their preseason this week, the
college boys came bursting out
of the gates like the '85 Bears
defense such an onslaught
from all directions that even the
most ardent fan couldn't be
quite sure which way to turn.
As if the myriad of games
played on Thursday, weren't
enough, nine games were tele-
vised on Saturday as good a
reason for a dawn 'til dusk bar-
becue as I've ever heard.
Then again, the opening of
the NCAA football season
means the non-conference part
of the schedule.
The part of the schedule
where the Division I behe-
moths ensure themselves of
season-opening wins by sched-
uling games such as the Gators
taking on Western Kentucky,
which might as well have been
the St. Tabitha's School of
Quilt Making as difficult a foe
as the Hilltoppers were for
Florida.
But the baseball season is
heating up even as it's winding
down, and I'm sure the
Yankees had that college fever
and looked to feast upon a ha?-
less foe as they came to Tampa
Bay for a weekend series with
the Devil Rays.
After sweeping a very
important, pressure-packed,
playoff-atmosphere series from
the Red Sox, the Yanks appar-
ently came in flat as the Rays
blasted the Bronx Bombers 9-1
Friday night.
But, given that the Boston-
New York series is always such
a fierce battle, especially this
late in the season, it was kind of
like Tampa caught a break.
It was like a prize fighter in
one of those "I'll take on all-
comers" scenes and the head-
liner just got done with his
tenth fight, this one against
town favorite Rock Studley and
although he won, he's all but
spent.
Then average-joe Jab
Lightly steps in and lands a
couple hard punches that sap
what's left of the champs
strength.
But even though you under-
stand the situation for what it
is, it is nice to see a smackdown
like that.
The surprising non-smack-
down was the first day of the
Deutsche Bank Championship
event of the PGA FedEx play-
offs.
For the first time ever, Tiger,
Phil and VeeJay were grouped
together for a round.
Not that I expected them to
smack each other around for

Dankenbring rushed for
three touchdowns and
caught four passes to help
his Martin County High
School Tigers to a dominat-
ing 35-0 shellacking of the
Sebring Blue Streaks in
Friday night's season-open-
ing game.
Dankenbring and the
humongous Martin County
lineman had their way with
the Streaks, who seemingly
also had to deal with the
officials wearing stripes.
But even with the "home
cooking officiating and an
announcer that called the
Streaks the Streakers during
the entire game, Sebring had
many other problems like

Meanwhile, Dankenbring

108 rushing yards the ver-
satile athlete also had four
receptions for 63 yards.
Sebring received the
opening kickoff of the game

punts after losing 4 yards.
The Tigers, however, got
all they would need on their
opening drive, beginning on

LAKE PLACID The
highs of the first-week win
were replaced by the lows of
a second-week trouncing at
the hands of the John Carroll
Catholic, High School Rams,
as the Green Dragons fell
34-7 Friday night at Roger
Scarborough Stadium.
"It's a bit of a come-down
from last week, sure," head
coach Tim Grant said. "We
were riding a little high and
just didn't execute as well as
we should have."
Despite this, the Dragons'
were hanging right with the

as the defense was bent but
not easily broken.
The opening Ram drive
saw them move the ball to
the Lake.Placid 10 before
Zach Campbell picked off a
T.J. Mullins pass to give the
Dragons possession.
After three Cevontray
Wilson runs for 17 yards
moved them from the shad-
ow of their own end zone, a


penalty and two negative-
yardage pass plays forced a
punt.
With good field position
from which to work, the
Rams capitalized with a
three-play scoring drive,
culminating in a Mullins to
Trevor Gregory 20-yard
touchdown pass at 2:49 of
the first quarter.
Again Lake Placid started
out their next two series
gaining positive yardage,
but couldn't sustain it.
The defense was fighting
tooth-and-nail, however,

AVON PARK The Ridge
Community football team
rolled over the Avon Park Red
Devils Friday night as the
Bolts walked away with an
easy 41-0 win.
"I am just glad Michael
James is on our team," said
the Bolts head coach Richard
Tate.
In all, James rushed for 153
yards and 3 touchdowns
against Avon Park, including
a 69-yard run in the first quar-
ter.
"He (James) is a solid kid
for us, he does everything that
is asked of him," Tate added.
"We knew we had to
shut down the middle. Rii
Our defense played Comn
well, stepped up and
did just that." 4
Indeed, Avon Park
had trouble getting Avon
it's offense moving
and was plagued
again this week with
penalties and turnovers.
The Red Devils started out
solid and moved the ball con-
sistently in the'first couple of
series in the first quarter, but
an interception killed the
Devil's drive and set up a 69-
yard run' by James that
stunned Avon Park and left
them dazed for the rest of the
game.
The picture looked bright
early in the second quarter for
the Red Devils as a recovered
fumbled put the red machine
on the six-yard line.
Three plays later, however,
Bolts linebacker Domonique
Anderson picked up a
dropped ball from a rattled
Avon Park offense and ran it

95 yards for a touchdown.
Starting 'again with poor
field position after the kick-
off, another long Red Devil
drive was killed by a mistake,
this time a fumble, which
forced a short punt by Avon
Park.
Just like the Devil's bad
luck last week in Lake Wales,
the punting problem allowed
the Bolts to score for a
ge third time before the'
unity half.
S This time a 33'-yard
run by James left the
Devils down 21-0'and
Park facing another uphill
battle..
The second half of
the ball game went the
same for Avon Park as delay
of game penalties and a strug-
gling offensive line kept the
Devil's backfield fighting for
every yard.
Another Avon Park fumble
early in the third quarter set
the scene for the Bolts, this
time with Anderson carrying
it in from the 3.
A repeat performance by
James with 4:33 left on the
clock brought the score to 35-
0 Ridge Community.
A final score off a 22-yard
run by Vincent Williams in
the last twenty-eight seconds
of the third quarter put the
'last nail in the coffin for the


their own 27-yard line.
Quarterback Richard
Shiller opened the drive
with a nine-yard scramble.
and the Tigers ran the ball
down Tiger Stadium until
faced with a fourth down on
the Sebring 24.
Dankenbring ran around
the right side of Sebring's
defense untouched for a TD
with 6:09 left in the opening
period.
Eric Strack, a perfect 5-
for-5 in the extra-point kick
department, split the
uprights to raise the lead to
7-0.
The Blue Streaks gained
seven yards on the ensuing
possession before punting.

DAN
Continued from 1D
while they aren't exactly
friendly toward one another on
the whole, they are civil.
But with the three of them
playing together, one had to
think that they're level of play
would be amped up that much
more, possibly producing some
ridiculous shots and scores that
would have squashed the play-
off field.
Well, it did produce some
shots that were ridiculous.
Phil driving it into some of
the thickest woods you'll ever
see, then chipping out, then hit-
ting a tree and ricocheting it
back into the woods on his next
shot.
Similarly, Tiger tries chip-
ping it out of the sand only to
get it just under the lip of the
trap, still in the sand.
His next shot gets out, hits
the grassy hill and rolls back
into the sand.
But the most ridiculous
aspect of it was, they said he
finished with a six on the hole.
It was nice to see someone of
Tiger's level humbled by tak-
ing three shots to get out of a
sand trap a very normal
occurrence for me and many
golfers.
But to then hear that he took
those three shots and still got a
six on the hole?
And that after Phil's misad-
ventures in the trees got him a
seven?
I'm lucky to even find my
ball if I go into the woods, and
he goes in them twice, on the
same hole and still manages a
seven.
Shows why I'm best served
suppressing my PGA dreams.
Maybe St. Tabitha's, oops, I
mean Western Kentucky should
have suppressed their big time
dreams as well.

PLACID
Continued from 1D
distance with just the 7-0
halftime deficit.
"I thought we moved the
ball well," Grant said. "But it
would just be a couple little
things that would stop things
for us."
But a couple big plays soon
spelled the demise of this
game early in the second half.
A Ryan Dimarco intercep-
tion stopped the opening
drive of the third quarter for
the Dragons and a Greg
Buderus 49-yard run on the
very next play put the Rams
on the Lake Placid goal line
for a Mullins sneak and score.
Less than one minute later,
John Carroll's Javaris Giles
scooped up a fumble and
returned it 28 yards for anoth-
er score and suddenly the lead
had ballooned to 20-0.
Ram linebacker Joe Smith
stepped in to pick off another
pass on the second play of the
next Dragon drive and eight
plays later Robert Dimarco
was bulling in from the two,


'I thought we
moved the ball
well, but it would
just be a couple
little things that
would stop us.'

TIM GRANT
Lake Placid head coach
making it 27-0 with 4:46 to go
in the third.
A bright spot for Lake
Placid, and a potential
momentum changer, took
place a few minutes later as
Demetrius Williams pounced
on a fumble and rocketed 78
yards for an electrifying score
that got the Dragon faithful
on their feet and put a charge
back into the stadium.
The decibal level went up
another few notches when,.
Navahri Holden dove to snare
a deflected pass for an inter-
ception, giving Lake Placid
the ball back at the Ram 40-
yard line.
But a mishandled exchange

on a handoff gave the Rams
the ball right back and while
they didn't score on the ensu-
ing drive, but a 15-play clock-
eater took the steam out of
any Dragon comeback hopes.
A late, 27-yard touchdown
run from Buderus (18 carries,
146 yards) provided for the
final margin.
Wilson finished with 72
yards on 13 carries for Lake
Placid.
"They (John Carroll) are a
very well coached team and
they executed very well,"
Grant said. "No excuses, they
were fired up to play and we
just have to go back to the
drawing board."
"My young daughter came
running out after the game to
find me and that put things
immediately in .perspective,"
Grant continued. "I told the
guys, it's a loss, but there are
much bigger things in life that
you will, lose, just keep your
heads up and let's get ready
for next week."
Next week will see the
Dragons hoping to celebrate a
little more when they travel to
Celebration Friday night.


STREAKS
Continued from 1D
next drive on the 26 and
quickly started moving the
ball as Shiller connected with
Dankenbring for 12 yards on
third down and later hooked
up with Gillie St. Hill for 17
more.
The Blue Streaks appeared
to get the spark they needed
when junior Jack Howard
leaped up and intercepted a
Shiller pass.
But Sebring's joy was
short-lived as there were yel-
low flags on the field and the
Streaks were called for rough-
ing the passer.
Talk about a back-breaking
call, this one came on the
final play of the first period
and just two plays later
Shiller hooked up with Matt
Walker for an. 8-yard TD
reception and it was 14-0 and
off to the races for the Tigers:

Chevontray Wilson can't escape the grasp of John Carroll
linebacker Matt Bruhn on this play. Wilson would total 72
yards on 13 carries, but Lake Placid couldn't surpass the
charging Rams.


Despite gaining 11 first
downs and some hard running
from sophomore Daniel
Burnett (90 yards, 18 carries)
Sebring's offense never got
any closer than 'Martin
County's 38-yard line -,and
that happened late in the game
after the Tigers had substitut-
ed for the starters.
'The Tigers added another
late first-half touchdown to
salt down the victory.

Following a Sebring fum-
ble near midfield, the Tigers
drove to the six-yard line
before they scored on
Dankenbring's scamper with
2:28 to go, before halftime.
Sebring, still fighting to
right the ship, dro\e the ensu-
ing possession ;o its 49 before
Kevin Welborn made what
appeared to be a reception to
all save the official standing
behind him.
Welborn came diving and
scooped up the low pass from


'There's no need
to hit the panic
button. The team
just needs to feel
the sting of this
for a few days.'

JARED HAMLIN
Sebring head coach
quarterback Jamarle Fletcher,
but it was ruled an incomplete
pass pretty much typifying
what Sebring was forced to
endure.
Dankenbring capped: the
opening drive of the second
half (Tigers won toss but
deferred to second half) with
a 22-yard TD romp on third
down and Na'Sir Salaam
scored the Tigers' final TD on
a 15-yard blast with 4:31 left
in the contest.

DEVILS
Continued from 1D
struggling Avon Park team.
The point after was no
good for the Bolts, one of the
few things that didn't go right
for them, bringing the score
-to 41-0 Ridge.
On the next series, Avon
Park again looked hopeful,
but a third down delay of
game penalty and a fumbled
punt-snap forced a short kick.
It seemed like Ridge would
score another time late in the
fourth quarter, but mistakes
and penalties halted them,
leaving the final score at a
slightly more merciful 41-0.
"I've got to be both coach
and motivator now," com-
mented Avon Park head coach
Earnest Perkins. "But we will
keep working at'it."
"We have not jelled yet as a
team. We do have some tal-
ent out there, but we have not
put it together yet," he con-
tinued. "There are no excus-
es, we lost. Monday it is
back to work, even if it is
Labor Day."

The Tigers amassed 33.4
total yards of offense, with
Shiller completing 9 of 20
passes for 129. yards and -a
TD,
"Losing (defensive stand-
out) Antoine.Smith in the first
half sure didn't help us," head
coach Jared Hamlin said. "Bit.
we look forward to welcom-
ing back Sam Robinsin and
T.J. Williams on offense next.
week."
The Streaks had 166 total
yards, with Fletcher complet-
ing 2 of 11 passes for 1'8
yards.
"There's no need to hit the
panic button," Hamlin said.
"The team just needs to feel
.the sting of this 'for,,a few
days. Then Monday we'll
look to the next game, try and
correct the mistakes and get
in the win column."
The Streaks will seek to do
that when .they host Pasco
Friday at Firemen's Field. :
