Local students


explore options


for next step
SBy TREY CHRISTY
trey.chrisry@newssun.corn
SEBRING Thursday's College
Night brought admissions representa-
tives from more than 40 colleges across
the state.
The relaxed atmosphere provided the
potential undergrads the opportunity to
discover the vast array of options for
their choices ahead.
Students hustled from booth to booth
filling out paperwork, picking up pack-
ets, and talking with school admissions
representatives.
"I think education is important, so I
tell them how to apply, give them infor-
mation on financial aid and what majors
we offer," Assistant Director of
Admissions for St. Leo University
Wendy Greer said. "We all work together
at these events, if someone has a ques-
tion about a major we don't have, we
point them in the right direction."
Juniors and seniors from the three area
high schools showed up in droves, all
with different dreams and agendas for
the night.
"I.came because I wanted to check out
aviation programs," Sebring High School
Junior Robert Blanchette said. "I'm
looking at a school in Jacksonville; not a
lot of colleges have both aviation and
music."
Lake Placid High School senior
Megan Spurlock was in search for that
one school that best fit her needs.
"I'm applying to different colleges and
want to get a feel for where I want to
go," she said. "I don't want to go too far
from home so I can visit my parents
whenever I want to."

SEBRING For the 100
or so juvenile cancer patients
hanging out with family at
Sebring International
Raceway, this was an extend-
ed weekend away from hospi-
tals and doctors, nurses and
needles.
It's called "Kids Racing for
Life," and three such events
are held through the year at
various road courses by
Zoeller Ministries. The min-
istry might best be described
as a pit crew for the soul that
travels the road racing circuit
of the Southeastern United
States.
"If it happens in a church,:
we do it at the race track,"
said Steve Zoeller, explaining
that his crew serves as mobile
pastors to the drivers, crews
and officials with whom' he'll
spend 30-40 weekends per
year.
"Kids Racing for. Life"
actually began 10 years ago
with trips to baseball games
for children battling cancer,
but quickly morphed into. a
race-oriented event.
"I figured the children
would love racing," said
Zoeller, a 27-year licensed
racer himself.
If expressions are any indi-
cations, they do.
Linda Molitor, of
Wauchula, was wandering the
pits with her 11-year-old son
Brieyice looking for his 10-
year-old brother. The
Molitors have been coming to
Zoeller's events for about five

International Raceway.


years, while her eldest son
Brandon was receiving
chemotherapy. Now in his
20s, Brandon returned to
Chicago to live with his
father.
Even without Brandon, the
Molitors were invited to
return.
"The part I like the most
about it is it's a big family,"
she said.
Brieyice, fortunate in that
he hasn't been diagnosed with
cancer, does suffer from sev-
eral ailments that have taxed
his body and her purse
strings, Molitor explained.
The Zoellers have been help-
ful around the holidays, and
in between.
Having found her 10-year -
old, Blaiaine, Molitor spoke
with race car owner Stanly
Lesniak, of Boca Raton.
Lesniak has a yellow 2002
Porsche Turbo, a street-legal
racer with modifications for
the track.


Lesniak began racing in
January, and having the "Kids
Racing for Life" families out
was a first-time experience
for him. Earlier Saturday, he
had taken several children for
spins around the world-
famous track. .Brieyice,
Blaiaine and Matt Thomley,
16, of North Fort Myers, were
among his passengers.
During their three-days in
Sebring, the cancer patient
families eat and lodge for
free. Zoeller Ministries picks
up the $25,000 tab that
includes the overhead beyond
room and board. He said can-
cer treatments leave most
families penniless.
For dinner Saturday, the
world-famous McGruffs
served up a pulled-pork din-
ner, donating the grub and
serving services.
He complimented Martin
Mackey and the McGruffs as
"most incredible" for their
interest.

Sydney Stewart (eft) and Kate Haile check out the Florida State University booth
manned by admissions officer Eric Hartsfield at College Night Thursday at'the
Highlands. County Agri-Civic Center. Steward was interested in finding a school
with a respectable communications program while Haile was more interested in
medical school.


County didn't matter.
"If it's far away, it's far away that's
life," SHS junior Joseph Lezama said.
"This is the opportunity to look for dif-
ferent colleges, and find out what the
heck to do with my life."
Eric Hartsfield, the admissions officer
from Florida State University, was busy
all night answering questions, giving
information on the different majors his
school offers and also what marks the
school requires for admission.
He was also quick to brag on his
school's solid programs.
"We have a great niusic department,
students come from across the country,"
he said. "We also have a Pulitzer prize
winner on staff for our creative writing
program, and we have pre-law and pre-
med programs and the resources for stu-
dents to go further in those fields."
With so much information available to
students, some even found the decision


harder as they went along.
"I'm still not sure, there are tons of
schools I'm considering, but I haven't
found the one yet," LPHS senior Katie
Haile said. "I'm still looking at medical
school programs, or anywhere I can get a
scholarship for swimming"
With the cost of college soaring,
scholarships were an item discussed at
length at nearly every college booth.
"I have to check out financial aid, it's
just me and my mother," Eduardo
Qu'evedo said.
Quevedo found out with a GPA over
3.5 he can get a full ride to a school
down in Miami.
He said the night was informative and
did much for his fellow Highlands
County students.
"It's good for them," he said. "I think
they should have more of them in case
some students weren't able to make it
out."

AVON PARK A 14-year-
old boy was arrested
Thursday evening for stab-
bing one of his acquaintances
for no apparent reason.
The victim and a friend
allegedly went over to the 14-
year-old's home to trade a BB
gun for a video game system.
SOnce at the residence off of
South Delaney Avenue, the
14-year-old- asked the victim
"have you ever been stabbed
before?" the report said.
The 14-year-old boy then
allegedly grabbed the victim's
left hand and cut him on the
left wrist with a knife.
In an apparent attempt to
subvert punishment after


committing the crime, the
suspect allegedly said, "If you
don't tell anyone, I'll give
you a Nintendo DS screen."
The victim ran home and
told a neighbor what had tran-
spired. The neighbor took the
victim to a nearby hospital,
where he received seven
stitches to the left wrist.
The 14-year-old was arrest-
ed and charged with aggravat-
ed battery with a deadly
weapon, a second degree
felony.
The Department of
Juvenile Justice was contact-
ed and a caseworker arranged
a hearing for him.
He was transported to the
Highlands County Jail and
released to his mother.

Special to the News-Sun

Department of Veterans
Affairs plans to hire suicide
prevention counselors at each
of its 153 medical centers, to
strengthen one of the nation's
largest mental health pro-
grams and continue providing
world-class health care to the
nation's veterans.
.Dionne recognizes that
many our local veterans have
paid a high price for their
service to this nation and
have earned. the right to
world-class health care,
including mental health care.
Any suicide is a true
tragedy that affects not just
the families, but also the
community.
VA health care profession-
als are committed to provide
timely, compassionate inter-
vention, which might help
prevent a suicide.
The new suicide prevention
counselors will join the 9,000
mental health professionals
already employed by VA.
The department spends
nearly $3 billion a year .for
mental health services.
About 1 million VA
patients have a mental health
diagnosis.
Suicide prevention requires
access to high quality mental
health services, along with

VA going after those who defraud veterans


Special to the News-Sun
The Department of
Veterans Affairs is continuing
a long-standing campaign to
identify and prosecute those
who defraud veterans of their
rightful benefits, and recently
highlighted several successes
by its Inspector General in
investigating people who mis-
handle the- finances of veter-
ans and ,family members
unable to. manage their own
affairs.
The VA is committed to
protecting the veterans, espe-
cially our most vulnerable
veterans, and will investigate
and help bring charges against
anyone suspected of defraud-
ing veterans of the disability
compensation or any other
assistance they have earned.
Fiduciary fraud is a crime and
the VA will bring the full
'force of law against offend-
ers.
Among recent cases suc-
cessfully prosecuted as a
result of investigations by
VA's Office of the Inspector
General:
Los Angeles resident
Anne Chavis pleaded guilty to
perjury and forgery in embez-


zling $1 million from veter-
ans who were too disabled to
handle their own financial
matters. She is awaiting sen-
tencing.
The daughter and son-in-
law of an elderly Alaskan vet-
eran with Alzheimer's disease
diverted about $500,000 from
the veteran to make personal
purchases while failing to pay
the veteran's bills. Phyllis
Talas was sentenced to 60
months probation, and Frank
Talas to six months incarcera-
tion and 36 months probation.
A Washington state
woman overseeing her niece's
VA benefits pleaded guilty to
misappropriating funds and
was sentenced to 36 months
of probation. Christina May
diverted to her personal use
funds from VA's ,ependency
and Indemnity Compensation
awarded to her under-age
niece.
From January 2005 through
April 5 this year, VA's Office
of Inspector General investi-
gated 61 cases of alleged
fiduciary fraud. Twenty-seven
people were indicted on relat-
ed charges, 19 of whom have
been convicted so far.

To report suspected fraud
involving veterans benefits,
contact the Office of
Inspector General Hotline at
1-800-488-8244.


Committee was established to
assist veterans who cannot or
do not receive assistance from
any other sources and need
some immediate help.
The veteran or veteran's
family should contact an area
veteran organization such as
the American Legion or VFW
first. That organization may
be able to assist with the par-
ticular need. If not,-that
organization will direct the
veteran to the next group to
contact. There is a procedural
linage of available help
through the 25 cooperating
veterans organizations, before
the VAC is contacted.


Patriot Express offers small

business loans to veterans


Special to the News-Sun
Nearly 25 percent of the
newly discharged veterans are
considering starting their own
businesses, according to the
Small Business
Administration. Joseph A.
Dionne, Highlands County
Veteran Services officer,
notes that a new Small
Business Administration ven-
ture will make business own-
ership easier for all veterans.
The Small Business
Administration has unveiled a
program called "Patriot
Express" that offers a wide


variety of assistance to veter-
ans interested in setting up or
expanding their own small
businesses, which is consid-
ered to be a wonderful initia-
tive in helping veterans tran-
sition back into the private
sector.

SBA program is available, at

CITRUS
Continued from 1A
"It is a disease that basical-
ly gets into the vascular sys-
tem of a tree and will slow
down the flow of water and
nutrients," Royce said. "We
have seen infected trees in the
area, but the infection rate is
higher in south Florida."
Researchers are uncertain
how the insect spreading the
disease first came into the
country, but increased risk
due to tourism, travel and
immigration have increased
the chance of exotic plants
being imported into the
United States. The Asian cit-
rus psyllid is responsible for
the disease in Florida, but
three types of psyllid are
known.
They have infected citrus
crops since their discovery in
China in the late 1800s and
have spread to numerous
African, Asian and South
American countries.
"I took a trip in April to
Brazil to see greening and
talk with the folks in Brazil to
see how they are handling it
down there," Royce said,
"since they are the largest cit-
rus producing country in the
world."
Although citrus greening is
a bacterial disease; it is not
spread by wind, rain or con-
tact with contaminated tools.
The psyllid spreads the dis-
ease from infected trees to
healthy trees as they feed on
the plant.
The psyllid has no natural
enemies in the United States,
and predators from foreign
countries cannot be intro-
duced. Pesticides able to kill
the psyllid also kill beneficial
insects that prey on other
bugs.
Florida is the highest pro-
ducer of citrus in the United
States, but has been suffering
recently after hurricanes
slowed production in 2004
and 2005.
Genetic solutions are in the
works, but for now farmers
can only watch groves care-
fully afd remove infected
trees.

News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
Michael Branham (left) confers with his attorney Larry Shearer during the trial Friday.


BRANHAM
Continued from 1A
that he was "under a tremen-
dous amount of stress, anxiety
and frustration," he said.
Branham added that he was
"ironclad, 100 percent sure"
that his statement to Kelly
was confidential.
"I wanted to share with him
some thoughts I was having,"
Branham said. "I wanted to
share things in confidence. I
wanted to get his spin on it."
Branham added that he did
not intend to follow through
with his threat to murder
Janette.
State Attorney Steve
Houchin grilled Branham dur-
ing cross-examination, and he
asked Branham why he would
need to be talked out of a
murder that he had no plans to
actually commit.
"How is him telling you not
to kill advice?" Houchin
'asked. "How was that legal
counsel?"
Houchin followed up by
asking Branham why he
would need to go into detail
with his statement if he didn't


intend to follow through.
"Are you trying to craft a
story around Kelly's testimo-
ny and the appellate court rul-
ing?" Houchin asked, to
which Branham flatly replied
"no."
In overruling Shearer's
objection, Hunter said it was a
"stretch" to say Branham's
statement fell under attorney-
client privilege. Shearer
lodged a standing objection to
the testimony, but the jury
heard it anyway.

Nine witnesses called
in busy opening day
While Kelly's testimony
was certainly the most contro-
versial of the day, the State
called eight other witnesses
Friday, including Janette's
mother Kathy Seamons;.
Bonnie Dressel and Jodi
Beatty, former employees in
Janette's law firm; and Julia
Hartley, Janette's neighbor
and the last person to see her
alive.
Jurors also heard Michael's
911 call made after Janette's
death, in which he said "my


wife tried to kill me and I shot
her." Branham said he was
"worried about my wife" after
she was shot and claimed she
attacked him with a pair of
scissors.
Following -the 911 call,
jurors heard information
about the crime scene and the
immediate aftermath of
Branham's call from' Hardee
County *Deputy Sheriff Todd
Souther, the first officer to
respond to the scene. Also tes-
tifying Friday were Det.
Mixon Trammell, who backed
up Souther at the scene, and
Lt. Greg Pfeiffer of Hardee
County Fire and Rescue, who
drove the ambulance to the
scene.
All three men said
Branham was calm and polite
at the crime scene. They also
testified as to the large
amount of blood found
around Janette's body.
The jury was sent home at.
3:35 Friday afternoon with
instructions not to read about
or talk about the case, and tes-
timony at the Hardee County
Courthouse will resume
Monday at 9 a.m.


TULANE
Continued from 1A

Clell Ford, Sherri Cooper -
using Devlin's home as the
base of operations with a
planned noon barbecue and
Miami-Oklahoma football
watch party.
Watson and neighbor
Richard Prince took the for-
mer's barge, towing a dingy
on its final float. Using six-
foot-long trash grabbers the
two worked together to pull
garbage from the shallows,
working clockwise from the
northern shores. Three other
boats worked the perimeter
from the water while several
other people walked the
shoreline and shuttled their
trash with trailer-toting ATVs
and golf carts.
Tulane resident Clay
Gooch said Saturday's was
the third clean up in his 11
years there.
"The first one was part of
the entire Avon Park clean
up," he said, explaining they
overflowed a Dumpster with
junk retrieved from the clear,
75 feet deep lake.
The trash changed as the
men on the barge floated from
north to south, bottles gave
way to tires.
With help from the Scuba
World divers, the box spring
and mattress were pulled
from the water, loaded on a
trailer and driven to a roll-
away bin. The bedding didn't
appear overnight, complained
several of the residents.
A few weeks ago, the mat-
tresses were on the beach,
Watson watching as people
sunbathed on them. He noti-
fied the city. But, crews
couldn't' find the mattresses
when they came out. Watson
later found them underwater
and subsequent requests of
the city to clean up weren't


satisfactory.
The divers pulled the box
spring and mattress from just
outside the marked swimming
beach, in about 10 feet of
water. They used yellow "lift
bags" to float the dilapidated
furniture to shore.
But, the crews pulled some-
thing else out the hull of a
boat with no obvious registra-
tion numbers.
John Shimkoski, Scuba
World owner, said his crew
was at Tulane today because
the Lake Denton boat ramp
had been shut down. He
understood the issues that
lead to the closure and said he
empathized with homeown-
ers.
"We need to learn to get
together better, to co-exist,"
he said.
Watson said he doesn't
mind the divers coming to
Tulane, so long as they don't
trash it and don't act as if they
own it.
His greater concern, how-
ever, was the city's alleged
neglect of the lake.
"This is a city beach,"
Watson said, pointing to the
broken glass sparkling among
the white sand of the beach.
"They don't clean it up like
the do Lake Verona because
city hall overlooks Verona."
Watson, Prince and others
weren't bashful in noting that
few residents from the lake's
southern shores participated
in the clean up.
The men, women and chil-
dren spent about four hours
on the effort. Dontray Hilton,
11, and Daniel Terrell, 10,
were the only helpers from
the south side, where most of
the work was done.
"You have more interest in
your lake here than they had
for the Lake Jackson clean
up," Ford told the small

in touch with Marty Roepstorff,
the head of Sebring's utilities
department. He said I was wel-
come to learn about the city's
sewer system. Could I meet with
Jack York and his wastewater col-
lections team at 9 a.m. Thursday?
Well of course I said yes.
But first comes the dog part.
I have three.dogs, two of which
are smart enough to come when
they're called.
One, however, my problem
child, grows suddenly deaf and
defiant unless food is involved,
or we are indoors ready to go out.
It's a power struggle really, as to
who is in charge on, the street.
Anyway.

In the mornings. I

to the beach behind

made the decision
- a bad decision as
it turned out to


che thile dogs out of part of their
morning routine. Instead of going
all the way to the beach, we'd stop
up in the grass, they could run for
a few minutes, then I'd walk them
the long way home and I could
leave early for work.
No sooner had I dropped prob-
lem child's leash, however, than
she took off for the water, ignor-
ing my whistles and name calling,
keeping the distance between us
too far for me to catch her she

Then it got worse as she turned
her back altogether and trotted
even further away, attracted by a
white heron in the water.
I was frustrated and angry
enough to hand her over to


Michael Vick. .'
But of course
that's no good:
dog, can really
sense that kind
of anger.
Intelligently, they avoid it when-
ever possible by keeping a safe
distance. Being angry wouldn't do
at all.
With a Herculean effort, I man-
aged to control my temper and
took a deep breath; then looked at
the time and freaked out all over
again.
It was about 8:30 a.m. I needed
to get going.
' Thinking that my problem child
(her name is actually Katie) was

Only by the time I arrived, there

SFWMD pursues partnerships with ranchers to expand water storage


Special to the News-Sun
WEST PALM BEACH -
Despite the current water
shortage, water managers are
planning ahead for wetter
conditions by expanding part-
nerships that will allow water
storage on private land north


of Lake Okeechobee, helping
to reduce inflows to the lake
and the frequency of dis-
charges to coastal estuaries.
As part of the Florida
Ranchlands Environmental
Services Program, four addi-
tional pilot projects were


approved earlier this month
by the South Florida Water
Management District
Governing Board. These
agreements double the num-
ber of landowners ready to
take on and store excess water
on private land when lake lev-


els are unusually high.
"Storing water is so vital to
lake and estuary improve-
ments, but building large-
scale reservoirs takes time,"
said SFWMD Governing
Board Chairman Eric
Buermann. "I applaud the


willingness of private
landowners to participate in
environmental restoration by
providing immediate relief to
our water storage needs."
Four ranches added to the
program are: Lightsey Cattle
Company; Rafter T Ranch;


C.M. Payne & Son, Inc.; and
Syfrett Ranch West. All are
within the Lake Okeechobee,
Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie
estuary watersheds. Together
the lands will provide some
2,200 acre-feet of additional
water storage capability.

The first Sweetbay
Supermarket opened its doors
in Seminole in November
2004, with Fort Myers and
Naples opening stores shortly
thereafter. The brand was so
well received during the first

accelerated store openings by
one year, transforming 92
Kash n' Karry stores in three

Today, there are 101
Sweetbay stores, with three
more brand new scheduled to
open by the end of this year.
"The conversion of the last


Kash n' Karry store is only the end of the
beginning, and now our single focus is build-
ing a really successful regional supermarket
chain. Broader said. "All of our effort and
energy-is now focused on improving and
growing Sweetbay."

Last month I attended a funeral.
As I sat in' the padded chair
(instead of a pew), I listened to the
songs sung in memory of this loved
one, heard the testimonies of what a
great person he was and realized how
much difference just one life can
make in the world.
His kids (all grown up now) were
silently weeping as they watched the
slideshow of his life, proud to call
him their father, missing him more
than words could say. His presence,
was a stabilizing force in their world.
He had a passion for life, always
cutting up with folks, spoke his mind
freely and always ready with advice
or an opinion. A day with him was
never dull or boring.
He had ups and downs, like most,
of us do and challenges we knew
,about and maybe some we didn't
know about ... but he was quick to
help someone in need, despite his
own.
The reason I'm writing this is, I


Janelle's
Jargon
Janelle Dennison
realized due to the challenges this
person faced, at times I stood in judg-
ment instead of accepting him, look-
ing past his issues. And because of
his issue, I didn't take advantage of
the few times I'd get to see him, just
learning to enjoy the real person
inside, his true heart.
I missed out on really knowing a
good person. He was great with chil-
dren, he loved to cook'for anyone and
everyone, he gave bear hugs without
restraint, he listened and made good
conversation, he was all about family
and loved family get-togethers. He
was a tall, solid built man, (almost
looking like a football player) yet
would cry at romantic movies on the
Lifetime channel (movies for
women),I had never.realized he was
sensitive in that way.


Judging him (instead of his issue)
kept me from appreciating who he
was. I was always trying to "change"
him, give him advice on how to "bet-
ter" his life and not just enjoying the
few moments I had with him.
He had the privilege of meeting a
group of people at Union
Congregational Church in Avon Park
who had their ,own struggles and
challenges. They were able to look
past his issue and love the
person...and he felt that love and
acceptance. Would to God we could
all learn to do the same. Thank you
Celebrate Recovery for embracing'
him. You treated him just as Jesus
Would and as He did, through you.
After all, when we've done a good
(or not so good) deed to one of those
the least his brethren, we've done it
unto Him.
I'm hoping to spare someone who
may read this column the same
regret. Life is too short to not really
know those around us....those in our

family, our co-workers, people we
interact with everyday.
I know he's in heaven now because
he had faith in the Lord. I can only
imagine the many nights when he
was facing his struggle, he called out
to Hirii and He listened because the
Bible says God is near those who are
of a broken and contrite spirit. I do
know that he wanted to "get it togeth-
er" near the end and was looking up,
but the Lord had other plans. Now
he's "home" with his mother and
other family members and not strug-
gling anymore.
.He was my cousin, Larry. I can't
wait to see him again and pray he and
the Lord will forgive me and that I
will stop trying to "fix"' people in the
future and just love them where they
are, in the here and now.
May we all do the same is my
prayer.

How do we regain
control?
Editor:
How many state, county
and city workers does it take
to change a light bulb? -
It must take all of them, at
the same time, trying to
change the same bulb. Of
course you and I are expected
to pay all of them, more than
once. Are we to be a govern-
ment Of the People, For the
People, by the People, or a
people that has allowed the
people that are supposed to
represent us do the thinking
for us and demand that you
and I support their lavish
lifestyle at the expense of We
the People, promising to
work for us? But instead,
burdening us with high taxes,
fines and fees any way they
can.
I would like to ask you as
one of the people. What can
we do as a people to take
control of our government
again?.Do we have the right
to demand that the people we
elect to represent us do what
we want them to do? ..
Whose house is this? Is it the
people's house or the county
commissioners, county offi-
cers, the state representatives,
officers, or governor's house,


'A free and questioning press, free also to make the
occasional mistake, remains a crucial part of the checks
and balances that help define American democracy.'

MICHAEL GETLER
Washington Post former ombudsman, 2006


or does it still belong to you
and We the People? If it does
belong to us, why aren't you
standing up together, the
People, asking questions and
demanding answers and
changes? Just taking what is
dealt out to us by those that
are to represent us is not the
way to keep this great land a
free democracy.
We have too many people
doing the same jobs and
expecting you and me, the
People, to pay the bill. Why
does it take at least four or
five different police depart-
ments state, county, city,
Department of Transportation
and even sometimes the game
warden to watch you and
me coming into Highlands
County on the same road.
Who pays the bill to change
the bulb?
Try to build a house, more
less a business building. You


will have so many different
departments telling you what
to do with your property that
you can't do what you want
to do with your own land.
Ask our commissioners why
Olive Garden is,not coming
to Sebring. Would you pay a
$300,000 fee to the county
before you could build a
building for a restaurant?
Give me a break! I thought
restaurants were to help feed
the People. Instead, govern-
ment wants food first.
All I hear is the different
county and state departments
are trying to figure how to
get more even this year
before the People can have
their way. Why aren't our
commissioners and represen-
tatives asking more ques-
tions? Where are the People's
representatives? ...
We were told property val-
ues were overvalued last


year, that property values
went down and they have.
What puts the true value on a
piece of property? When the
property is sold, not what it
might sell for. ..
This year it has been
reported we have already had
more bankruptcies this half
of the year than previous
ones. The mad rush on inflat-
ed property is over. Why the
higher tax appraisals? Did
.you get your tax bill? Instead
of appraisals going down like
it should, tax appraisals went
up more. Setting us up for
even higher taxes without
representation.
A few years ago I bought a
little piece of property. I paid
$4,000 for it. At today's tax
rate, every eight years I will
pay the county what I paid
for the property. What is
wrong with this picture? Can
you help us the People find


the answers? How do we
compare to the rest of the
country in an area like ours?
Can we find the true facts?
Our population has been
growing, but that population
is here only half the year or
less. Do we really need full-
time staffed departments year
round? Are We the People
being used to make govern-
ment bigger? What are the
true statistics? How do we
compare to other populations
similar to ours? Even busi-
nesses, many are downsizing.
Businesses do not have the
option to overcharge and
charge penalization, fine the
people that support them and
refuse to listen. Let us stand
together as a force, people
for this great land and hold
our elected officials responsi-
ble.

debate

So I'm writing this column
at a time that is somewhat
late for me. Normally my
column is started way before
there's less than an hour to
Thursday. Now, it looks like
it'll be a race to finish it
before midnight.
There are several reasons
the column is getting a late
start. The biggest reason, and
the one i'll admit to, is the
Republican debate that was
on Fox News tonight. As I
type this, the debate is over
and Sean Hannity and Alan
Combes are chatting with the
participants.
I know as an independent I
should also be watching the
Democratic Party debates, at
least in the interest of fair-
ness. My problem is that so
far there is no Democratic
candidate that has even come
close to sparking my interest,
and the phrase "Presidential
candidate Hillary Clinton"
isn't something I can take
Shearing a lot.
As far as the Republican
candidates are concerned, I
am dealing with the fact that
I haven't found anyone to
support wholeheartedly. I do
know that there is no way I
am voting for Ron Paul, but I
wasn't leaning towards him
anyway. I was reminded
tonight that Paul was once a
candidate for president for
the Libertarian Party. If Paul
is the' best they had tp offer,
no wonder they aren't doing
well.
(And before the
Libertarians deluge me with
mail, I thiik you all deserve'
a placeat the'election table.
But Ron Paul is not someone
I want running the country).
But that leaves a bunch of
others to consider. Whatever
we may short of in this coun-
try, we have more than
enough presidential candi-
dates. Sadly, they are' not an
item we can export nor can
we pay someone for not pro-
ducing them.
One person who not in the
debate tonight was Fred
Thompson. He announced
his candidacy after the
debate. This gave the candi-
dates attending the chance to
poke fun at Thompson,
something they seemed to
enjoy.
One thing I'm not crazy
about in these new debates:
The questioners like to think

industry showed its true colors
(insurance is only as good as you
don't try to use it), the banks and
real estate industry saw an opportu-
nity to use supply and demand as an
excuse to raise rates and property
values.
Houses like mine went from
$46,000 to $116,000. I couldn't buy
my own house at that price.
The local governments saw dollar
signs and jumped on the band
wagon collecting more and more
taxes and feeding on the already
wounded people. Salaries in no
way are keeping up with this hous-
ing market and the tax and insur-
ance increases.
This has the real estate market in
a slump and the banks with a lot of
mortgage defaults (surprise, sur-
prise). This all boils down to one
word ... greed!
The working class of America
goes further down the economic
ladder. By the way, I saw a sign
on a new housing development that
said affordable housing starting at
$150,000. Who are they kidding.

Are Americans reaping
what.they sow?
Editor: ,
American politics is in a sorry
state largely because Americans,
who often complain about the horri-
ble escapades of their elected repre-
sentatives, have chosen the secular
argument for the state over the
moral requirement to hold office or
to lead a nation.
In the past few weeks, it seems
that nothing is sacred among the
elected in this nation except that
"anything goes" and the underpin-
nings of true democracy will sort it
all out. For example, if the majority
of American voters don't care much
about illegal fundraising, then the
politician has gotten away. with it.
Or if Americans don't really care
about whether a senator was solicit-
ing sex in an airport bathroom, or if
a United States president was com-
mitting adultery in the Oval Office,
sobe it, lif goes on;...
But-, 's no koniider the- politlcijin
-.are getting away with'horrible'
moral deeds with a slap on the
hand. The Christian church is not

faring much better:. Episcopalians
now say it's OK to have homosexu-
als as clergy, the Catholics have had
pedophile sex scandal after scandal,
and the non-denominational
Protestant churches are rife with
immorality. Just last week, popular
Florida Without Walls International
Bishop Randy White called up his
wife Paula before the congregation
and announced he was divorcing
her. She loses her pastorship over
the church, he takes the pastor's
position and the congregation does
nothing but support them both in
the breakup of their marriage ... the
second for both. Where-are the con-
sequences? ... This is how supposed
men and women of God behave. It's
shameful. ...
Americans need to wake up and
understand that if they demand no
morality in their political and
church leaders, they will receive
none. Americahs have no right to
complain if we are to accept far less
than what God has planned for us.
Founding Father John Adams, is
quoted as saying, "Our constitution
was made only for a moral and reli-
gious people. It is wholly inade-
quate to the government of any ,
other." Jesus said in Matthew 16:6
(NKJV), "Take Heed, beware of the
leaven of the Pharisees and of the
Sadducees."
Pharisees were members of one
of the most important and influen-
tial religious and political parties of


Judaism in the time of Jesus. The
Sadducees controlled the official
political structures of Judaism at
this time, being the majority mem-
bers of the Sanhedrin. They were
known as extremely strict on law
and order issues Leaven is the symn-
bol of evil or corruption, and so
"unleavened bread" bread made
without yeast was interpreted to be
a picture of purity or freedom from
corruption or defilement.
If you allow a little evil in, it
grows out of control, even to the
place of.destroying a nation.

Continued support is critical
Editor:
When the hurricanes of 2005 hit
the Gulf Coast, few of us would
have believed that two years later
we would still be talking about the
overwhelming needs of the sur-
vivors. Yet, as we look back on the
devastation and see the slow pace
of recovery we understand that this
conversation may be with us for
years to come.
Any conversation of recovery
efforts must include a resounding
"thank you" to the many people
who came together in response to
the worst hurricane season in the
history of our country. Thanks to all
the first responders who made their


way to the Gulf Coast region with
only a desire to help in their hearts.
Thanks to the thousands who kept
coming to the affected area to aid in
recovery. Thanks to supporters who
provided the financial resources to
make the relief and recovery activi-
ties possible.
In the midst of what became a
national emergency, the people of
Highlands County responded. We
showed character a team of car-
ing citizens, community leaders and
community organizations who
chipped in to make the recovery
effort meaningful.
In the weeks following the hurri-
canes, the Red Cross provided 68
million meals, sheltered thousands
and spent more than 1.4 billion for
direct emergency assistance to more
than 1.4 million families (4-plus
million people).
Over the past 18 months, the
American Red Cross Hurricane
Recovery Program has focused on
long-term recovery. The program
provides initiatives to assist with
survivors' most difficult mental,
emotional and life-rebuilding chal-
lenges.
. Despite the hard work of our
many community and corporate
partners, the needs far exceed the
resources available to help every-
one. As we move beyond the two-
year remembrance of the 2005 hur-
ricanes, the Highlands County
American Red Cross thanks you and
the people of Highlands County for
your continued support. Your
investment in the Red Cross is not
only for the relief of a past event. It
has also heightened preparedness
for the future, for we learn from
every event. Your continued support
is critical as we get ready for what-
ever emergency may come our way.
Art Harriman,
Director, Highlands County
American Red Cross

Homecoming picnic
was such a joy
Editor:
From all angles, our first Avon
Park Pioneer Homecoming Picnic,
held Aug. 18, was a success. Our
aim was to create a community-
wide event and many in the com-
munity not only attended, they also
supported our efforts.
This support came from private
individuals and from the Avon Park
business community. These busi-


nesses include The Depot
Restaurant and Catering, the
Olympic Restaurant, Robert King
Realty, Maxwell. Groves, Jimmy's
Flower Shop, Rent King and C.
Elton Crews, Inc.
Thanks, too, to the many folks
who, before and during the picnic,
supported us by opening up their
wallets and rolling up their shirt-
sleeves. Also, a thank-you to the
News-Sun for the fine coverage of
the picnic and, in its editorial of
Aug. 22, for recognizing the contri-
butions of our society to Avon Park.

Much appreciation to
Good Samaritans
Editor:
Yesterday I had to stop at Wal-
Mart and get some groceries and
other much needed items. When I
got to the check-out counter, my
debit card would not go through,
even though I thought I had the
right pin number (found out later it
was different) and it had just been
renewed, etc. A very kind young
lady (after my fourth try) stepped
up to the counter and paid my gro-
cery bill.
Another "Good Samaritan"
(young lady) helped me last week in
Winn Dixie, when I failed to have
the funds I thought I had.
I cannot begin to say how grate-
ful I am to these young ladies. I
offered to give them my phone
number or get their phone numbers,
but both said not to worry about it
... it was no problem. My daughter
was with me in Wal-Mart and was
able to give the one lady $14 (less
than half the bill, $38) and she did-
n't want to take that, but my daugh-
ter insisted.
We both' are praying for the Lord
to bless them "double for their trou-
ble." It was so kind-of them and
they did it from their heart.
We were embarrassed and even
the poor cashiers were embarrassed
I'm sure; I am determined to not let
it happen in the future as I'd rather.
do without than to be a burden to
anyone.
Thanks again and God bless,

up hypothetical situations
(mostly of an international
nature) and ask the candi-
dates what they would do if
they were president. It seems
to me to be a waste of time.
You can't possibly squeeze
enough information in such a


question to allow the candi-'
date to-give anything close to
a useful answer.
Of course, ifyou want
something more than sound,
bites and entertainment,
debates like this are probably
not for you. There was some
entertainment, some fire-
works, Perhaps some knowl-
edge gleaned from the


canned answers.
And I'll give Fox credit for
trying to ask decent ques-
tions, despite the silly hypo-
thetical.
But in the end, what did I
come away with after spend-
ing 90 minutes of my life lis-,
tening to these guys? A few
thoughts to close out the col-
umn:


One: At this point, you
could swap Huckabee for
Brownback for Hunter and
I'm not certain I could tell
you who was who.
Two: I wish I could warm
up to Giuliani. I wish I could
spell his last name without
having to check it. But I
don't like him. I don't like
his views. And if the


Republicans make him the
nominee it's going to cause
me heartburn.
Three: I like Romney. If I
had to vote for someone
today, it would be him more
than likely. But we'll see
what happens down the line.
Four: I wish McCain
would take back campaign
finance reform and his stance


on immigration so I didn't
have such mixed feelings
about him.
Five: Are we sure we can't
export presidential candi-
dates?

TUFFLEY
Continued from 11A
found her in the street. He
already had five dogs at
home and asked me if I could
take her in. Then he had
made me swear an oath that I
would take good care of the
dog.
I mean this friend is
absolutely serious about ani-
mal welfare and I didn't
know how I was going to tell
him I had lost the dog he had
saved.
Of course the clock kept
ticking. By now there was no
way I could get to the utili-
ties department on time..
I returned home, called the
police and the Cohan Radio
Group, describing the dog
and where it was last seen.
Everyone was sympathetic
and helpful.
After spending about 45
minutes searching, I returned
to the house.
Gathering my notebooks
and camera, getting ready to
leave dog found or not -
I did hear some barking, but
it sounded like it was coming
from a neighbor's apartment,
and they have a dog so I did-
n't think anything of it.
I got on my motor scooter
deciding to make one last
swing down the Sebring
Civic Center parking lot for a
final look.
This turned out to be the
one good decision I made all
morning. Because while I
still didn't see Katie down by
the water, as I drove back up
the hill I suddenly heard.
frantic barking, and there she
was, safely tied up on the
Highlands Art League's front
porch.
Naturally it was her bark-
ing I had heard earlier -
from nearly a block away,
through a closed window. All
I can say is, my neighbors
must have loved me.
Anyway.
I thanked the women'who
had found her, refrained from
throwing the problem child
in front of a car,- it really
- was my own fault after all -
and walked her back to the
house getting her safely
inside.
I called Roepstorff to let
him know why I was late, but
that I would be over as soon
as I had notified the police
and the radio station that
everything was back to fine
and dandy.
Then I went back to the
Civic Center parking lot to
collect my motor scooter.
Only it wasn't there. What
a horrible moment as the
truth of it seeped in.
So, for the second time
inside of two hours I called
the police to report a loss.
The dispatcher said she'd
send a patrol car directly.
By now I'm about a half
hour late.
Just at that moment a man
who had parked next to me
earlier came back to his car. I
had asked him tb be on the
look out for the lost dog, so I
told him there was a happy
ending to that story, but that
someone had stolen my
motor scooter in the mean-
time.
He frowned slightly in
thought, then said he was
pretty sure he had seen me
drive off on it, which is the
moment it dawned on me I
had returned to the place
where I had lost the dog, not
to where I had found the dog
up at the top of the hill.
You know it's bad when
you wish for something to be
really gone, because it's too
embarrassing to admit the
truth if it's still there. My
luck, the scooter was right
where I'd left it.
I called central dispatch


back to let them know about
the false alarm, and was on
hold with a dispatcher when

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop

Grandparenting

is truly grand
"If I knew how much fun
grandparenting would be,
I'd have done it first," says
a popular saying.
And it is fun. But, as we
'aspire to the 'grand' part of
parenting, we experience the
precious trust of our grand-
children. As we delight in
them, it's fulfilling to bask
in their delight of us as well.
When our first grandchild
was born, we felt too young
for the title, yet slid into the
role comfortably. Babies
don't care about age. They
just care about love and the
nurture they find in our
presence.
Unfortunately, our chil-
dren and grandchildren live
12-14 hours away,from us.
So, frequency is not part of
our grandparenting role.
But, through telephone, mail
and some visits, we've kept
the ties that bind bound.
On Mother's Day, my
husband took me out for
dinner. When we returned
home, there was a message
on the machine from our
youngest grandchild,
Jonathon. In his unique
sing-song voice he left this
message.
"Hi, Grandma! "...appy
Mother's Day. I love you
Grandma."
As I write those words I
hear his voice and a deep
chuckle forms in my being
as, a smile spreads across my
face.
"That is one message I'm
saving," I told my husband.
"Please be sure we don't
erase it."
Anytime I needed to hear
Jonathon, I pressed the mes-
sage button and got tickled
all over again.
And then the unthinkable
happened. During a severe
thunderstorm, the telephone
line was hit by lightning,
destroying the phone along
with the message.
I miss it, but am thankful
-for how deeply it's
impressed in my mind -
just a thought away.
One day, our 9-year-old
grandson called. After some
small talk, he took the
phone into his room so he
could tell us what he was
"dealing with right now."
As he shared, he sought
our advice. We felt humbled
and honored to be found
Trustworthy in his eyes.
In Matthew 19:14, NKJV,
we read that Jesus said, "Let
the little children come to
Me, and do not forbid them;
for of such is the kingdom
of heaven."
We had the opportunity to
give our grandson some
practical advice while
directing him to the Lord in
prayer and God's Word. By
the time we said our good-
byes; he sounded hopeful.
As grandparents, let's
bless our grandchildren with -
our prayers and encourage-
ment. Let's make sure they
know how valuable they are
by demonstrating uncondi-
tional, accepting love a
safe haven where they are
always welcome.
Among the best gifts we
can give our grandchildren
is a legacy of faith that's
exhibited in integrity, wis-
dom and discernment.
Grandparenting is fun and
truly grand in scope. Selah

Florida's cattle industry a part of our heritage and our future


Did you know that Florida is the
oldest cattle raising state in the
couritry? In 1521, accompanied by
approximately 400 men, on his sec-
ond voyage to Florida, Ponce de
Leon brought Andalusian cattle,
sheep and horses to Florida. He
was on a quest to discover more
about Florida and planned to estab-
lish a settlement.
Thus, began a long and interest-
ing history of the cattle industry in
the sunshine state.
No other state in the nation par-
ticipated in the cattle-raising
process until the Pilgrims brought
cattle to America in the early
1600's. The Spanish settlers had a
difficult time in those early days.
Although there was ample grazing
land, they were challenged with
mosquitoes, ticks, storms, swamps,,
snakes and Indian raids.
However, they prevailed and by
1700 cattle ranches were a common
site along the Panhandle and St.
Johns River.
As more people began to make
Florida their home, transportation
became an issue. Once the railroad


was introduced to Florida in the
1.800's, because transporting live-
stock became less cumbersome, the
beef industry began to grow. People
began to relocate to Florida and
new towns began to appear.
Because of the cattle industry,
jobs were available in these towns.
There was a need for stores to sell
goods, blacksmiths to tend the live-
stock and cowboys to manage the
herds.
Agriculture became an essential
role in Florida. For almost 500
years, the cattle industry has con-
tributed significantly to Florida's
economy and natural resources.
Many generations'of family ranches
and landowners have cared for the
land, provided employment for
many residents and contributed
greatly to the local tax base.
Today, Florida is becoming more
populated because of the climate,
attractions, recreational activities
and natural resources.
This urbanization is contributing
to the loss of many of the cattle
ranches in Florida. With real estate
values going up, it is difficult for


the land owner
\ to pass up the
opportunity to
4"h make a large
profit on their
land, especial-
ly when you
consider that
cattle ranching
News is a difficult
From The business and
Waters does not
Watershed always have

Corine Burgess high profit
margins.
Agriculture is an essential part of
Florida. The cattle industry plays a
major role in the agricultural indus-
try. According to the Florida
Cattlemen's Association, "cattle
ranching significantly supports
Florida's interstate economy and
provides jobs as well as beef. In
addition, the cattle industry sup-
ports a vast network of associated
businesses.
These allies, include. (but are not
limited to) feed companies, heavy
machinery corporations and fertiliz-
er manufacturers. This integrated


web of economic organizations
helps create jobs and business
opportunities in Florida.
Additionally, Florida's cattlemen
have been strong supporters of
Florida's youth and culture.
From county fair displays to
scholarship contests, Florida's cat-
tlemen have worked diligently to
give back to the communities they
serve."
Not only does the cattle industry
provide food, jobs and support to
the economy, it is also a business
that benefits the environment. In
today's world, land owners are con-
scientious of the environment and
how fragile it is.
They contribute greatly to the
land they manage and the wildlife
that lives there. They utilize best
management practices on their land
regarding conservation.
The United States Department of
Agriculture Natural Resource
Conservation Service has programs
that will assist the land owner tech-
nically and financially in these best
management practices. Pest man-
agement, prescribed burning, fenc-


ing, planting and water structures
are just a few of the practices that
these agencies are offering assis-
tance with.
These programs are available to
the land owners in an effort to
encourage and assist them to con-
tinue to provide this essential serv-
ice.
Hopefully you understand the
benefits of cattlemen to the state of
Florida. Our beautiful state is being
developed aiid urbanized more
every year. It is vital that each of us
know the value of agriculture to our
state and support the people who
provide in so many ways to all of
us.

programs offered by the
USDA/NRCS, please visit our Web
site at http://www.highlands

Conservation Service specialist with the

Arbor Day Foundation offering 10



free live oak trees for joining i

Offer for Florida residents who become members in September


Special to the News-Sun
Ten free live oak trees will be given to
each person from Florida who joins The
Arbor Day Foundation during
September.
The five trees are part of the non-prof-
it Foundation's Trees for America cam-
paign, a program dedicated to environ-
mental stewardship through the planting
of trees.
"These magnificent wide-spreading
trees will be picturesque additions to any
landscape," John' Rosenow, president of
the Arbor Day Foundation, said.


"They were selected because of the
shade and special beauty they provide.
Live oaks grow rapidly when young and
may live to be centuries old.
"They will also add to the proud her-
itage of Florida's 120 Tree City USA
communities. For three decades, Tree
City USA has supported community
forestry across Florida and planting these
trees will make this tree-planting tradi-
tion even stronger."
The trees will be shipped postpaid
between Oct. 15 and Dec. 10, at the right
time for planting. The 6- to 12-inch trees


are guaranteed to grow or they will be
replaced free of charge.
Planting instructions are enclosed with
each shipment of trees.
Members of the Arbor Day Foundation
will also receive The Tree Book, which
includes information about tree planting
and care.
To receive the free trees, send a $10
membership contribution to Ten Live
Oaks, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor
Avenue, Nebraska City, NE 68410, by
Sept. 30, or join online at www.arbor
day.org.

Help! My

mortgage

company went

bankrupt
The distressing surge of
mortgage defaults and
foreclosures is taking its
toll on lenders. Recently,
two of the nation's largest
sub-prime lenders -
American Home
Mortgage and New
Century Financial filed
for bankruptcy protection.
Other lenders are down-
sizing operations and
offering fewer loans.
Even Donald Trump has
not been unscathed; his
mortgage company closed
its doors after less than
two years in business.
If you are among many
Floridians who borrowed
from wounded financial
institutions, you may be
concerned and confused
about what could happen
to your mortgage if your
lender goes bankrupt. In
most cases, lenders'
financial woes won't
affect borrowers, and they
certainly don't provide an
excuse to stop paying
your mortgage. But there
still are some important
things to know.
Don't panic
Before )ou '\ orrp too "

HELP
'Continued from 1

much, consider this: Your
mortgage company may not
be who you think it is. Many
lenders sell their home loans
to other banks after closing.
Then, that bank might
repackage a group of loans
and sell them to the securities
markets as mortgage-backed
bonds. So in fact, your mort-
gage could be part of a large
bond owned by thousands of
investors.
What does all that mean?
Not much to you, because
your loan terms will remain
the same, regardless of who
holds the note.
You might wonder how
you could be making mort-
gage payments without
knowing who you're paying.
Many mortgages are handled
through a loan servicing
.company, which manages
loans and receives payment
on a lender's behalf. If you
make payments to a loan
servicing company, you can
call them to find out who
owns your loan if you wish.
If you do pay your lender
directly, and that lender goes
bankrupt, there's still no need
to panic. When financial
institutions declare bankrupt-
cy,,they usually continue to
service existing loans. If your
lender sells your loan to
another bank during bank-
ruptcy, you should receive a
letter at least 15 days before
the new lender takes posses-
sion of your note that
includes contact information
and payment deadlines.
,While it sounds fi ighiteiin
to hear that )our lender l&ht'
filed for bankruptcy protec-
tion, it's important to know
that government organiza-
tions and regulatory bodies
help govern this process to
protect consumers. If you
have any questions about a


lender's financial status, visit gage companies will try to Florida real estate survey: Homeowner

Keep paying your
mortgage
The worst mistake you
could make is to assume that
your lender is "out of busi-
ness" when they file bank-
ruptcy and stop making your
mortgage payments. Your
loan is an asset to your
lender, ahd under bankruptcy
protection, they will either
restructure and keep servic-
ing your loan, or sell it off to
Another institution. Either
way, someone will be on the
lookout for your check. And
making late payments is a
surefire way to harm your
credit.

Know your loan terms
The terms of your loan
should remain the same,
regardless of what bank or
financial institution owns it:
Review the terms of your
mortgage thoroughly, and
know that your interest rate,
loan type and repayment
schedule shouldn't change. It
may be helpful to have your
real estate attorney review
your loan terms so you can
be sure that you know your
rights.

If you're applying for a
loan, check its status
Those who are most likely
to be affected by a lender's
bankruptcy filing are con-
sumers who have not yet
closed on a mortgage. This is
Because during bankruptcy,
lenders stop making new
loans. However; pre-
approved loans often are
transferred to another finan-
cial institution to service, and
in that case, the terms could
change. However, most mort-


found that 63 percent of
Florida homeowners believe
the value of the homes in their
community will continue to
rise or remain the same during
the next 12 months, despite
recent real estate sales data
that show home values wan-
ing across the state.
The annual survey, com-
missioned by Florida-based
Attorneys' Title Insurance
Fund's Consumer Education
Campaign, polled more than
1,400 homeowners through-
out the state between June 11
and June.25. Detailed results
can be found at
www.myrealestatestatestory.com.
More than -half of the
respondents believe now is a


actually intended to buy a
home in the next two years.
Not surprisingly, the vast
majority (80 percent) of
homeowners agree that now is
a bad time to sell and are less
optimistic about their ability
to sell their homes today:
"The good news is that,
amid proliferating news sto-
ries about an underperforming
national real estate market,
Florida homeowners remain
optimistic about the value of
their homes and are encour-
aged by the Agrowing buyer's
inarket," said Charles J.
Kovaleski, president and CEO
of Attorneys' Title Insurance.
Fund.
The survey also indicates


If you've paid off
you're mortgage, be
sure you can prove it
If you've paid off your
mortgage to a lender that's
filed for bankruptcy, contact
the attorney general's office
to find out how to get a mort-
gage satisfaction document.
This office will be able to
give you information about
the company's status and
who you can call to get this
document.

Keep your credit
healthy
Even if you are able to
make your mortgage pay-
ments, remember that the
current mortgage climate is
troubling for everyone.
Lenders are becoming far
more conservative, so refi-
nancing is likely to be more
difficult. If you want to pur-
chase a house in this buyer's
market, getting a mortgage is
going to be tougher.
The best way to weather
the current real estate storm
and get the mortgage you
want is to do.what you can to
improve your credit and keep
it healthy.

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

Hail, Hail,

the NFL's

here

Thank .goodness, the
NFL is getting underway.
Yes, the college season
has gotten underway, with
some obviously phenome-
nal story lines already tak-
ing place (Appalachian
State shocks the world and
sends the state of Michigan
into chaos; Notre Dame is
terrible).
But being from Big Ten
country (with our BCS
championship representa-
tive getting absolutely
destroyed) and having not
gone to a Big Ten school,
my overall interest in col-
lege football is at about six
on a 10-point scale.
(I do often wonder,
though, what it must be
like to have gone to a
school that was a football
powerhouse I I know I get
sort of envious whenever I
hear Scott Dressel's cell-
phone ring to the tune of
the Florida Gator fight
song.)
And even aside from the
college season, baseball
has always been my
favorite sport, and so it
would seem illogical for
me to be happy that the
NFL starting just as the
pennant races are reaching
their pinnacle, in Major
League Baseball.
But as has been docu-
mented here many times, I
am a Cubs fan and there-
fore I realize that they are
doomed.
Their maddening incon-
sistency has me glad I
shaved my head, since, oth-
erwise I'd be pulling it out.
Then again, that takes
away being able to do that
in the many moments of
frustration while Watching
them blow another game -
instead, I'm left to repeat-
edly slap my bald noggin
repeatedly, much like
Curly after he's sniffed the
perfume, Wild Hyacinth.
Instead, I'm saved of the
agony of another season
going down the drain with
the onset of the NFL.
Forget the offseason
house cleaning by new
commissioner Roger
Goodell, the season is
about to start and Sunday's
are about to become the
day of football in house-
holds across the country.
Parity has become the
norm, meaning there will
certainly be some surprise
teams that jump up and
become the new Cinderella
story even the Bucs or
Dolphins, despite the prog-
nosticators claims to the
contrary.
The Jags might be head-
ed in a whole new positive
direction now that they
have their quarterback sit-
uation settled.
So> happy were
Jacksonville fans when
Byron Leftwich was let go
that over 1,000 more tick-
ets were sold which still
might not be enough to
prevent them from being
blacked out on TV.
So maybe that's a little
two steps forward, one
step back which is still
progress.
Back in my old neck of
the woods, I've got a team
that went to the Super
Bowl in a division that is

Hardee stays hot, while Sebring and Lake Placid bounce back

Dragon special teams,

defense mark difference
in Celebration

By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne @newssun.com
CELEBRATION There are many ways to
..score points in a football game and it's not
just the offense that can do it.
That was a valuable lesson
ALake Placid learned Friday night just down
S12 the street from the Magic
Kingdom as Lake Placid
S. Celebration totaled 3 offensive points in
topping Celebration 12-0.
"With some kids, stressing
special teams goes, in one ear
and out the other," Green
Dragon head. coach-Tim Grant said. "But
those that listen and take it to heart realize
; what a difference it can make."
It made a big difference after a first half in

Streaks bounce back against Pasco


By JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING A lot can happen
to a football team in a week's
Set
.time. .
After getting knocked
down and shut out the first
week on the road at Martin pa
County, Sebring head coach
Jared Hamlin was certain his
Blue Streaks would lick their
wounds, get back up and turn
around and beat somebody.
The Pasco Indians found them-
selves facing a determined Sebring
team Friday night and felt the
.rebound of the Blue Streaks as they
took a quick lead only to have
Sebring score 21 second-half points
to win 21-7.
"We made some progress,"
Hamlin said when asked about the:
difference of losing 35-0 and then
rebounding to waylay Pasco. "We


were blessed tonight, no 'doubt
about it. I mean, they just came
together and did a great job.
ing Second half we battled
adversity. We still made mis-
takes, but we're gonna get
I better at it. These kids are
co gonna be all right. It's a
work in progress."
On the third play'of the
game following the opening
kickoff, Pasco quarterback
Harold 'D.J.' Clower hooked up
with Joshua Johnson for a 56-yard
TD pass and Brennan Allen's extra-
point put the visitors up 7-0 with
11:08 remaining in the first period.
For Blue Streaks fans, it was
already looking like d6ja vu from
the previous two weeks.
But nobody could have known
juist how :tough .and: angry the
defense was or what running back
T.J. Williams (132 yards, 2 TDs)


and wide receiver/defensive back
Sam Robinson had in store.
After the teams traded punts,
Sebring's second possession stalled
- with the Streaks facing a fourth-
and-15 on their own 20.
Robinson lined up to punt, but a
bad snap forced him to try and run
the ball.
Following the measurement, he'd
come up an inch short and Pasco's
offense got the ball on downs at the
Sebring 35-yard line.
After competing a 4-yard pass,
Sebring defensive back J.C.
Howard intercepted a Clower pass
with 9 seconds left in the opening
period. Though Sebring's offense
didn't find the endzone until tlie
third quarter, Howard's intercep-
tion, his second in as many games,
and a Robinson punt gave the

Wildcats dig deep


to beat Miners


By SCOTT DRESSEL
scott.dressel@newssun.com
WAUCHULA Character,
Attitude, Trust and Strength is
the motto of the Hardee
Wildcats football program.
Friday night against Fort
Meade, the Wildcats needed
all four of those to take a
hard-fought 22-13 win. ,
"That's what we're all
about, that CATS," said
Jimmy Cimeus, who turned in
the biggest run of the
night when he broke Ha
free for a 22-yard
touchdown run with
3:43 left in the game
that, along with Jose Ft. 1
Castaneda's point-after
kick, put the Wildcats
up by nine points and
basically put the game
out of reach.
First-year head *coach Tim
Price, whose Wildcats
improved to 2-0, credited
assistant Steve Rewis with
that' touchdown run, which
came after at the end of a sec-
ond half in which the Hardee
offense had gained only one
first down, that coming via a
Fort Meade penalty.
It was Rewis who, from his
perch atop the press box, told
Price that Olnel Virgile was
always a little late throwing a
key block and suggested mov-
ing him up a step prior to the
snap.


"It was just a weird little
thing. Coach said he's a step
late, so why don't we move
him up a step with an unbal-
anced line, and I said, 'Let's
do it.' We did it and, we
scored," Price said. "We kept
getting there a foot late. We
moved him up, got the block
and (Cimeus) took it to the
house for us."
The penalty that helped set
up Cimeus' TD was actually a
double flag both for
rdee unsportsmanlike con-

Wildcats 30 free yards.
In all, the Miners (1-1)
leade were flagged 16 times
3 for 142 yards and had
one touchdown called
back on a penalty and
had two players ejected, one
of them as a result of that
double personal foul.
"We played with a lot of
heart and a lot of integrity.
That's a big thing, the charac-
ter we showed. It really shined
through and I think that's what
won us the ballgame, our char-
acter," Price said.
The Miners seemed intent
on digging themselves into a
deep hole, and every time
they made a mistake, the
Wildcats were there with a
shovel of their own.
In addition to the double
penalty that set up Cimeus'

Meade's Jeff Jones in the end zone to help preserve the
Wildcats 22-13 win Friday night.


score, the Miners also had a
score called back on a play
where quarterback Rumeal
Carlton took the snap at his
own 33, retreated all the way
to his own end zone under
pressure and dumped a pass
off to Tamorris Grace, who
raced up the Fort Meade side-
line for what amounted to a
100-yard scoring play.
But an illegal block and an
unsportsmanlike conduct
penalty on the play meant the
Miners netted just 11 yards on
the play. and the drive ended
with a bad snap and a bad
punt to give Hardee the ball


on its own 44.
Quarterback Jordan
Grimsley's designed run on
the first play racked up 43
yards by far Hardee's
longest play of the game -
and Cimeus went 13 yards to
the end zone on the next snap
for a 7-0 Hardee lead with
58.3 seconds left in the first
quarter.

also had a sack and a blocked
field goal in the first half and

zone in the final minute of the

Lake Placid's Jonathan Simons makes the
big hit to stop Mohammed Saleh from
crossing the goal line at the end of the first
half. That play would prove crucial, as
would Simons' 76-yard fumble return for a
touchdown, in the Green Dragon's 12-0 win
at Celebration.

AVON PARK In a one-
sided game, the Okeechobee
Bahamas football team defeat-
ed the Red Devils 48-0 Friday
night in Avon Park.
"We will keep working on
it," commented Earnest
Perkins," head coach for the
Red Devils after the disap-
pointing game.
The trouble began for Avon
Park at the opening kick-off.

ritory at the 47,
it was quick
work for the
Brahmans' running back
Lonnie Pryor who, with just
three quick runs,,set the stage
for an 8 yard Garrett Madrigal
pass to Nate Pollard for 6.
The point after was a sur-
prise as well for Avon Park as a
swinging gate offense quickly
set up another pass, this time
for two points, bringing the
score to 8-0 Okeechobee in just
the first few minutes of the first
quarter.
The Devils fielded the kick-
off and things looked hopeful

"Something About Mary,"
quarterback Brett Fav-Re.
But Brett's about as old as
me and they got rid of their one
proven running back, so the
frozen tundra of Lambeau Field
may just well be a big igloo
with hordes of cheeseheads tail-
gating outside come December
- which, is still fun to watch.
I still don't see how the Bears
are predicted to return to the
Super Bowl by so many
experts.
SThey too let their one proven
running back go, and have a


quarterback who, while much
younger than Favre, is. a bigger
question mark than Brett would
be if he was still playing five
years from now.
But with a monster defense
and an explosive weapon
named Hester, they sure have
some intriguing attributes.
And at least they'll carry me
much further into autumn than
the Cubs will.

PLACID
Continued from 1D
which Lake Placid was stuck
in the mud offensively and
couldn't do much of anything
- even with the special
teams' help.
Late in the first half of a 0-
0 game, freshman Richard
Rooks returned a Storm punt
to the Celebration 15-yard
line, giving the Dragons a
good chance to break onto the
board early.
But four plays netted nega-
tive five yards, giving the ball
back to the host team at their
own 20.
What ensued was an 11-
play, 79-yard drive in the
waning minutes that had the
Storm ready to strike.
With scant seconds left and
the ball at the three,
Celebration workhorse
Mohammed Saleh (21 carries,
104 yards) got the ball and
made his dash toward the end
zone.
But linebacker Jonathan
Simons got a good hit on
Saleh at the one and was able
to hold his ground and keep
him where he was.
The special teams gave the
offense another opportunity
in the second half when a
blocked Storm punt was
recovered by Gary Rickets
near midfield, but minus-four
yards later and Celebration
got the ball back.

'We not only

practice special

teams, we pre-

practice them.'

TIM GRANT
Lake Placid head coach

Forced to punt themselves
three plays later, the Dragon
special teams came up big
again, with a blocked punt
from the .12 ricocheting back
out of the Celebration end
zone for a safety, giving Lake
Placid a baseball-like 2-0
lead.
Two non-scoring series
later and the Storm got the
ball at their 32 looking to
erase the precarious Dragon
lead.
But Simons made another
game-changing play when he
scooped up a fumble at the 24
and took it back 76 yards for
the only touchdown of the
game and a 9-0 Lake Placid
lead, after Steven Guelff's
extra point was good.
After the defense held
Celebration yet again, Grant
went with his big backfield to
smash-mouth their way to
some yards as well as taking
precious minutes off the
clock.
With massive lineman
Travalier Sholtz in the back-
field, bruising fullback
Rashaad Brown blasted for-
ward for 28 yards on three
carries before quarterback
Conlin Veley kept it on a
bootleg for 15 yards.
That set up Guelff with a
35-yard field goal attempt
that split the uprights to pro-
vide for the final margin.
"We not only practice spe-
cial teams, we pre-practice
it," Grant said of the sterling
effort of that. group. "Then
after a while everyone wanted
to be running in to block a
punt .and we had to tell them
to take it easy."
"But we still have to work
on some little things offen-
sively, sharpen things up,
because we just couldn't get
anything going," he contin-
ued. "But our defense really
came up big. Coach (Verlone)
Carroll deserves the credit for
really getting those guys
ready."


STREAKS
Continued from 1D
Streaks some breathing room
and avoided the potential 14-
0 hole.
The Sebring defense had
Pasco's number from this
point onward.
Sebring's offense finally
got on track late in the third
quarter, taking over on its 45
following a Pasco punt.
Jamarle Fletcher, who was
10 of 16 passing for 85 yards
and a TD, hooked up with
Brannon Dorman for comple-
tion's of 5 and 17 yards
before Williams exploded for
what appeared to be a 35-yard
TD but a holding call negat-
ed the great run.
Fletcher then hit Travis
Overstreet for a key 8-yard
completion on a third-and-8
situation and Williams pol-
ished off the 11-play, 55-yard
drive with a 4-yard plunge
into the endzone.
Robinson's kick tied the
game at 7-7 with 2:33 left in
the third.
Sebring's defense contin-
ued to apply pressure to
Clower and the Pasco offense,
notching six sacks for minus-
40 yards.
Then Robinson made an
acrobatic interception of a
Clower pass to set up the
gamewinning score.
Robinson, who caught the
ball over his left shoulder
after a desperation leap into
the air, returned the ball 20
yards to the Sebring 46.
Williams carried the ball
eight straight times before
Fletcher hit Kyle Long for a
5-yard TD pass on third-and-
goal with 6:05 left in the
third. Robinson's kick raised
the lead to 14-7.
The Blue Streaks pretty
much owned Pasco at this
point and the large crowd
could smell victory.


CATS
Continued from 1D
game to ice the victory -
recovered a fumble on the
Fort Meade 11 with 9:51 left
in the half to set .up Jarius
Lindsey's 2-yard touchdown
plunge on fourth down for a
13-0 Hardee lead.
The Miners got on the
board with their own fourth-
down gamble.
Grace scored from the 1 to
cap an 80-yard drive 40 of
those yards coming on. an
Onterio McCalebb run for
a 13-7 lead at the half.
Another bad snap on a Fort
Meade punt midway through
the third quarter allowed
Lance Mason to block the
kick, sending the ball through
the end zone for a safety to
put the Wildcats up 15-7.
That's .where the score


Williams, running hard
behind some good blocking,
put that final nail Coach
Hamlin was talking about in
Pasco's coffin with an 8-yard
TD run in the waning stages
of the fourth quarter.
Hamlin said they knew
they'd have to curtail Clower
to have a chance at a victory.
"We knew that was the guy
we really had to stop,"
Hamlin said. "No. 3
(Demetrious Larry) caused us
some problems last year a lit-
tle bit. I thinkhe caught the
one ball (actually two for 29
yards total). We pretty much
did a good job on him. A lot
of that had to do with the
pressure. He didn't have a
chance to throw it.
"We put ourselves in some

holes, but were. very fortu-
nate. I think it's because we
kept fighting. They got to the
point where they could have
gone up 14-0 and they kept
fighting hard. We're blessed
that these guys are fighters.
When you get those opportu-
nities, you've got to put the
nails in coffins and we started
doing that tonight a little bit.
"T.J. ran hard tonight, I fell
bad for him. His first touch-
down every year is always
called back."
For the game, Sebring
amassed 229 total yards of
offense and Pasco was held to
110 total yards (14 yards
rushing).


remained until the third play
of the fourth quarter, when
McCalebb (18 carries, 121
yards) scored on a 1-yard run
with 10:24 left in the game.
The Miners' two-point con-
version try was no good, how-
ever, leaving the Wildcats
with a precarious two-point
lead (Fort Meade kicker
Freddy Cortez had come up
just short on a 52-yard field
goal attempt in the first quar-
ter) and an offense that was
struggling to move the ball,
gaining just 22 yards of
offense in the second half
until Cimeus doubled that
output with his TD run that
made it a nine-point game.
"We were real tired," Price
said. "We've got a lot of kids
playing both 'ways.
Everybody is on the field all
night long. We just played
with-a lot of guts."

Even on the rare occasion they mishandled the ball, Okeechobee was all over it as this trio
of Brahmans' piles on for a recovery of their own fumble in their 48-0 win over Avon Park
Friday night.


DEVILS
Continued from 1D
with a return out to the 36 yard
line by Virgil Cooper, but a pass
interception on the very first
play gave ball back to
Okeechobee deep in Avon Park
territory.
Allowing Pryor any running
room is a mistake, and this time
the Brahmans' running back
carried it in,from 36 yards on
the next play.
Just four minutes into the
first quarter, and Avon Park was
now down 14-0 due to a missed
PAT.
Nobody in the Devils camp
expected what happened next.
Again Brahmans' kicker
Skyler Cruz kicked it short, and
again the Okeechobee team
snatched it from a stunned Avon
Park kick return team.
Three more runs by Pryor,
and a short 3 yard pass by
Madrigal,.and it is first and goal-
on the one yard line for the
Brahmans. Short work for
Okeechobee fullback Steven
Smith.
With three minutes left in the
first quarter, the score is now
21-0 Okeechobee.
Although the Red Devils
managed to return the next


kick-off, and managed to pound
out a first down in the next
series, a sack of Albert Moses
and a forced punt gave the
Brahmans the ball in good field
position on the 43 yard line.
Avon Park's defense tough-
ened up, and held he
Okeechobee offense to a short
series, even stuffing a reverse
attempt, giving the Red Devils
the ball back on the 42 two yard
line.
The Red's defense,did a good
job keying on Pryor and held
Shim at the line over the next few
series and 'the ball changed
hands twice before Okeechobee
wide-receiver LeShawn
Henderson scored on a 51 yard
run.
The point after attempt by
Curtis Everett was good this
time, bringing the score 28-0
Okeechobee with over seven
minutes left in the'first half.
S.:,In the next series, a fumble
by the Avon Park offense
crushed all hopes of a score
before the half.
This time it was
Okeechobee's Pryor who
snatched up the ball and quick-
ly returned it 51 yards for
another Brahmans touchdown.
With just a minute left in the
half, a Madrigal to Pollard pass
and a 72 yard run brought the


score 41-0 Okeechobee.
A dogged Red Devils' team
again turned the ball over in
their own territory, this time off
a Moses interception before the
half was over, but Okeechobee
could not capitalize on it before
the clock ran out.
At the start of the third quar-
ter, Okeechobee would again;
score, this time with a 65 yard
kickoff return by Pryor.
A good point after would put
the Red Devils down 48-0 with
over 10 minutes'left to play.
Although the Devils i would
'fumble two more times in the
last half, the Avon Park defense
was able to hold the line and the
score would remain 48-0.
"Avon Park has so much up
the middle," Okeechobee head
coach Chris Branhan said. "We
knew we had to ,stop them
there, and we did."
He also knows the value of
What he has.
"Pryor's an outstanding play-
er of the, highest caliber," he
said of his running back who
currently has scholarship offers
from Florida State, South
Carolina and Boston College.
If there is a blessing, it is that
the team has an open date next
week, giving it ainple opportu-
nity to regroup and, reorganize
before hosting Hardee Sept. 21. ,
