Guns, 103 plants found in

outdoor operation in Venus


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
VENUS The grow
house epidemic in Highlands
County continues, with an
additional 103 marijuana
plants seized in an operation
that could have turned vio-
lent.
"This pArticular one there
were three weapons
involved, two rifles and a
shotgun," Capt. Randy
LaBelle of the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office said.


"This one had the potential of
going bad."
A loaded .22-caliber rifle
and a 12-gauge shotgun were
found next to the grow house
entryway and were readily
accessible to both suspects,
the report said. LaBelle said
another rifle was found
inside the residence at 327
C.R. 731.
"The incident in Lehigh
goes to show you that could
have happened here very eas-
ily," he said.

The Lehigh incident

Nearly 1 pound of marijuana

seized in raid on Sebring home


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING Grow house
arrests might be more glam-
orous for the Sheriff's office,
but taking drugs of the street
can be just as fulfilling.
That's what happened
Wednesday night when offi-
cers arrested William
Sheffield, 25, and Alicia
Froelich, 21, both of
Sebring.
The couple were found at
3841 Ponce De Leon Blvd.,
Sheffield's listed residence,


with almost a whole pound
of marijuana, reports said.
One bag alone was said to
contain a full three-quarters
of a pound, with other bags
found scattered around the
house in equal amounts, indi-
cating street level sales, the
report said.
"As opposed to the grow-
ers that we see, this type of
an arrest we know is distrib-
uted locally where the grow-
ers we don't really see a lot
of (marijuana sold) down
here," Capt. Randy LaBelle


Froelich Sheffield

of the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office said. "This
has more of an impact on
Highlands County."
LaBelle indicated-most of
the grow houses ship their
marijuana elsewhere, with
little remaining in Highlands
County. While the crimes are

Grant will


let HCSO


focus more


on meth
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Note to
methamphetamine users: Just
because you suffer from
drug-induced paranoia does-
n't mean the police aren't
watching.
With a U.S. Department of
Justice grant for almost
$400,000, the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office is
teaming up with Hardee
County to buy surveillance
equipment and attend training
to help them in the local bat-
tle against meth.
"Unfortunately, marijuana
grow houses have been domi-
nating the headlines," said
Capt. Randy LaBelle, crimi-
nal investigations division
commander. "But we have a
big meth problem and we've
had one for some time."
On Tuesday, Sheriff Susan
Benton will ask the countyS
commissioners to approve a
budget amendment to accept
the $392,672 Community
Oriented Policing
Methamphetamine Initiative
grant.
In 2005, the Florida legis-
lature passed a law as did
many states across the county
- restricting over-the-count
sales of ephedrine, pseu-
doephedrine and other prod-
ucts used in the manufactur-
ing of methamphetamine.

Clerk of Courts shifts accounting services


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING About six months ago,
Penny Robinson left the Clerk of Courts to
be Sheriff Susan Benton's budget director.
Now, Robinson is the department's
accountant/internal auditor, a position creat-
ed when Clerk L.E. "Luke" Brooker
announced he can no longer afford to pro-
vide that service to the sheriff.
"We were disappointed to get that news,"
Lisa McGehee, Benton's chief of staff, said.
She explained the clerk provided an addi-
tional layer of oversight and a different per-
spective of the sheriff's finances.
Lacking the accounting services, which


are covered by the clerk's budget and not the
sheriff's, Benton created the new position,
shifted Robinson into it and is looking for a
new budget director.
Robinson, coincidentally, was the deputy
clerk who managed the sheriff's account for
Brooker for several years, McGehee said.
Bob Jamison, senior director of business
services for the clerk, said the hand-over of
accounting services to the sheriff's office
was part of a plan initiated three years ago.
"Slowly, we're turning over more comput-
er capability to the constitutional officers
and at the same time, turning over function-
ality to them," he said.

SEBRING Most of
downtown Sebring falls
under the broad category of
C-l commercial zoning. But
in order to entice new de el-
opments into downtown
Sebring, Community
Redevelopment Agency
Executive Director Pete
Pollard believes a more
flexible zoning category
will be needed.
"We're looking for some-
thing that is a little more
defined," he said. "If we're
going to attract quality
development into down-
town, we need a mixed-use
type of zoning that is more
narrowly defined than C-l."
The ultimate goal of these
actions is to attract new res-
idents to the downtown
core, by extension provid-
ing both old and new busi-
nesses with a larger cus-
tomer base.
"This is probably the
highest priority the CRA


'This is
probably
the highest
priority the
CRA has.'


PETE POLLARD
CRA executive director
has," Pollard said. "If we're
going to attract restaurants
and more upscale specialty
shops that can survive, we
have to increase the number
of residents that live within
walking distance. By
increasing the residential
base, we're helping the
demographic base of busi-
ness."
Instead of overhauling the
entire downtown district all
at once, Pollard said he
expects rezoning will be
done in steps, beginning
with the downtown core
from the Circle to the Pine
Street loop.

Avon Park Fire Department gets new set of wheels


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
AVON PARK'- What's the first thing
you notice when a big, brand-new, fire-
engine red fire engine with. its lights
flashing pulls into the driveway of the
local firehouse to a small waiting crowd?
"Ooh! It smells new too,"
Councilwoman Brenda Gray exclaimed,
seemingly surprised, after a. firefighter
opened the cab to her.
Gray, Mayor Sharon Schuler, former
mayor Tom Macklin, Chief Terry
Feickert and a handful of on-duty fire-
fighters waited for the engine that missed
its 10 a.m. delivery by about an hour.
Fortunately, the only fire wasn't until
Ten-8 Fire and Safety Equipment sales-
man John Thompson fired up the house
grill and cooked lunch for the guys.
Feickert said the new fire truck, desig-


First new engine for

department in 10 years

nated Engine 5 under the countywide
numbering system, replaced a 1984 Ford
8000, which, besides being old, wasn't
designed to carry the modern equipment
now available.
The chief said the new engine would
be ready for service as a "second out"
before day's end Wednesday.
Before the firefighters began loading it
up with the hoses and equipment that
would make it a "first out" engine, they
took it around the block a few times with
the dignitaries onboard.
"We cover five square miles but we
have the best equipment in the county,"
Firefighter Clint Culverhouse said.
While passing the Hotel Jacaranda,


Schuler's phone rang. She flipped it
open, and answered it.
The caller asked her a question.
"I'm on Main Street in a fire truck,"
she answered.
Macklin said buying the truck was a
two-year process once the council
approved the purchase.
In addition to the engine, several thou-
sand dollars were spent on equipment.
"We needed the equipment but we
couldn't put it on the old truck," Feickert
said.
As chief, it'd been 10 years since he
last drove a fire truck until he pulled the
old one out of the firehouse for the last
time. Then, he was the first to drive the
new engine after taking delivery.
The old truck was used as a trade-in
with Ten-8, which happens to be
police/fire radio code for "in service."


If Your Paper Was Late ...
The News-Sun experienced technical
difficulties just before press time on Thursday
that may have caused a delay in delivery
today. For that, we apologize.

Two injured

in head-on

collision
By TREY CHRISTY
trey. christy @ newssun. corn
VENUS A 17-year-old
girl received a sobering
reminder of how unsafe the
road can be and that even the
slightest distraction a cell
phone, fooling with the radio,
or looking at a map can
cause serious injury or prop-
erty damage when behind the
wheel of a car.
An accident Wednesday at
5:41 p.m. on County Road
731, a half-mile west of
Detjens Dairy Road, resulted
in an estimated $37,000 of
property damage.
Debra Lawrence, 52, of
Venus, for unknown reasons
started to cross the center line
of the road.
Oncoming traffic was
unable to get out of the way,
resulting in the two-car acci-
dent. The front of Lawrence's
westbound Toyota pickup
collided with the front of 17-
year-old Beth Sullivan's 2006
Black Lexus 4-door.
The pickup was pushed
five feet back from the
impact point while the Lexus
continued for another 10 feet
eastward, coming to rest on
the north shoulder facing
away from the road.
Lawrence sustained serious
injuries as a result of the acci-
dent. Both women were wear-
ing seat belts.
Lawrence and Sullivan
were transported to Florida
Hospital, Lake Placid, where
their injuries were treated.
They were released within
24 hours.

Judge approves Snipes'
motion to delay tax
evasion trial
OCALA A judge post-
poned Wesley, Snijpes' tax
evasion trial until early next
year after the actor fired his
legal team.
U.S. Senior District Judge
William Terrell Hodges on
Wednesday called it a "ploy"
for Snipes to delay trial, but
said the motion was in the
public interest.
The case was headed to
court this month after earlier
delays pushed it off the cal-
endar in March. Prosecutors
objected, saying they were
prepared.
An October 2006 federal
indictment charges Snipes
with fraudulently claiming
refunds totaling nearly $12
million in 1996 and 1997 for
income taxes already paid.
The star of the "Blade" trilo-
gy and other films also was
charged with failure to file
returns from 1999 through
2004.

Mother pushing to get


sex crime law changed


Man who allegedly
fondled her 17-year-old
daughter not charged
with molestation
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
AVON PARK A local
S mother wants to know why a
man who she said sexually
assaulted her daughter was
not charged with a sex crime.
But what constitutes a sex
crime is all determined by the
S language of the Florida
Statutes.
According to those laws,
fondling someone's privates
VMONS or backside is not a sexual
lectrici- offense if the victim is 17
years old, although still a
minor.
a Furthermore, groping
someone's chest is not con-
sidered a sex crime either,
even if it is under clothing,
making skin-to-skin contact,
the victim's mother said.
She is out to change the
law, upset her daughter was
allegedly groped in her chest,
privates and backside by a
friend's father while visiting
their home.
S Stephen Walker, 56, of
S Avon Park was charged with
cruelty towards a child -
abuse without great harm
Drs stemming from the Oct. 3
incident.
"Now if my daughter
would have been 16 or under,
S the charge would have been
lewd and lascivious (molesta-
tion) on a child," the enraged
mother said. "This is how the
Florida Statute reads."
Asked how local law
enforcement interprets the
different charges, Capt.
Randy LaBelle of the
rs noted Highlands County Sheriff's
Swing Office said there is no inter-
fuel pretation.
ing "It's cut and dry; the cutoff
ie fuel is 16 for victims,'"he. said,

bed just approved the statute concern-

d ferences in the crime and

the offender matter," LaBelle
said, continuing to state he
didn't know why 17-year-olds
were left out. "It's been like
that for quite awhile."
A simple Internet search of
the term 'Florida Statutes'
turns up the entire gamut of
charges dealt with in this
case.
Chapter 800 deals with
lewdness and indecent expo-
sure. The chapter is then bro-
ken down to section 800.04,
which reads "Lewd or lascivi-
ous offenses committed upon
or in the presence of persons
less than 16 years of age."
The 16-year-old cutoff is
what concerns the victim's
mother. She wants to know
why the law does not include
minors up to 17.
Lewd or lascivious
molestation, section 5a, is the
specific language that deals
with the charge Walker might
have faced if the alleged vic-
tim was 16.
"That definition is verba-
tim what allegedly happened
to that girl, but with the
exception that she is not a
person under 16 years of
age," LaBelle said. "That is
why he was not charged with
it."
Lewd or lascivious
molestation is a second-
degree felony, while Walker's
charge of cruelty towards a
child was a third-degree
felony and would not require
him to register as a sex
offender, the key behind the
victim and her mother's anger
at the law.
"I feel bad for the mother
and the ki'. they are the ones
that have 1o deal with it,"
LaBelle said. "At 17 they are
still minors. Even though they
think they are adults they
aren't, so why they came up
with 16 instead of 17 I have
no idea. I don't agcee with
(the law) but I ha\e r
it accgggigl"-
Walker \\ as released on
$5,000 bond. His first court
date is scheduled for Oct. 29
at 9 a.m.

A crew from J & H Water Stop, a business out of Orange City, is replacing 30 man
hole liners around Sebring. Made out of fiberglass these liners are used at access
' points throughout the sewer system. They will be easier to maintain and last longer ,
than traditional cement liners. This one is located on Lakeview Drive. The work
began Thursday morning and was completed by the afternoon. That's'Roger Settle in

Veterans Council's Luau a success


Special to the News-Sun
Hundreds of hibiscus
blooms filled the Knights of
Columbus Hall as the Benefit
Luau went into full swing on
Saturday.
The hibiscus blooms were
not found in vases or on table
covers as much as they were
on the Hawaiian styled shirts
and muumuus that the guests
wore.
The Luau, a fundraiser for
the Veterans Assistance
Committee to be used to raise
awareness for the Veterans
Assistance Fund, was attend-
ed by approximately 150 vet-
erans and guests. A pig roast
was served with all the fix-
ings. Volunteers from the
VFW Auxiliary and the
Knights of Columbus
Auxiliary prepared the side
dishes and deserts.
Members of the Veterans
Council decorated the hall for
the event, and presented
guests with leis. Some of the
guests wore grass skirts and

Prizes were awarded for the
limbo, hula-hoop, and cos-
tumes. A Chinese Auction


and a Silent Auction were
held, with donations coming
from area businesses and
organizations.
All proceeds from the auc-

Some of the items offered for auction at the Highlands
County Veterans Council Benefit Luau include wooden
chests with emblems for the specific branches of the mili-
tary, donated by Gary Masdin. The tall 'Barbeque' basket in
the background was provided by the Wauchula State Bank.
Floral arrangements were donated by Michael's Arts and
Crafts. Other donated items included coffee from Starbucks;
sports wear from The Sports Fan; Wal-Mart, Publix,
Albertson's, and Winn Dixie grocery gift cards; Lakeshore
Carwash gift card; gift card to Yanni's Restaurant and Caddy

The chemical process is

said the department has
noticed a declining trend in

"They have these super labs
in California and Mexico," he
said, explaining meth will
never be fully eradicated.
"One can be named a super
lab because they can produce
10 pounds or more of the
product in any one cook."
"The problems are many,"
LaBelle said, explaining the
use of meth could lead to

Tax Collector Charles
Bryan had been taking care of
his own accounting, budget-

several years, Jamison
explained, before Brooker
implemented his plan.
"It's a slow, methodical
plan to make each constitu-

Brooker's ultimate goal is

"The biggest side effect of
meth usage is paranoia," he

constantly peek out their win-
dows and see things that
aren't there. "They've told me
I was disguised as a chimney
one time, or I was in their
attic listening to their conver-
sations."
Though LaBelle said he's
never dressed up as smoke-
stack, he said the grant money
will allow his department to
buy surveillance and electron-
ic equipment and also pay
overtime above what Benton
has budgeted.
"It's going to increase pub-
lic awareness," he said,
explaining a new position is
being created the metham-

of the board of county com-

cial functions, auditing and

The clerk's office isn't
required to provide account-

stitutional offices, nor is ,it
allowed to initiate audits of
them, Jamison said. But if
requested to do so, the clerk
may audit them if time, man-
power and the budget allow it.
"Any change and anything
new is a little distracting,"
Jamison said. "But once it's
all done, everybody will ben-

parked in the street with a
man, later identified as Carlos

Ulloa allegedly opened fire
on the two deputies upon their
arrival.
An exchange of gunfire
ensued before Ulloa finally
surrendered. Inside the home
an "obvious, sophisticated
marijuana grow house opera-
tion was revealed," the LCSO
press release stated.
Only half as many plants

Ulloa was charged with two
counts of attempted felony

were charged with trafficking

"All of the properties in
that area would fit into a
mixed-use type zoning niche
very easily without any nega-

nesses," Pollard said. "That,
to me, is probably the first
priority."
To begin the process, plan-
ner Michael Joachim present-
ed a draft of possible zoning
changes in the downtown area
at Monday's CRA meeting.
Joachim's draft called for a
Downtown Zoning District
classification, which would
permit a wide variety of
development including
everything from offices and
grocery stores to restaurants
(both fast food and sit down),
movie theaters, hospitals and
parking facilities. Prohibited

outside, LaBelle said.
"What was unique was it
had an infrared camera so
they could monitor the prop-
erty, so if we were to sneak up
the back they could have seen
us, which could have been
bad," LaBelle said. "This is
the first grow house where we
saw marijuana outside and
this type of surveillance and
weapons."
The camera was hanging
from a tree, aimed at the mar-
ijuana growing outside, with
video broadcast into the sus-
pects' residence.
"It's serious business, there
is a lot of money to be made
with this and they are taking
precautions to protect (the
marijuana growing outside)
and not get caught," LaBelle
said.
Carlos Morales, 32, and
Deysi Jimenez, 38, both of
Venus, were taken into cus-
tody and charged with pro-
ducing marijuana, armed traf-
ficking of marijuana and pos-
session of narcotic equip-
ment.
Morales 'was also charged


"tattoo and body art, adult
entertainment and gambling
establishments."
There is also a provision in
the draft that calls for limiting
adverse impacts on businesses
and residences that are
already present downtown.
"Commercial services
should enhance the economic
value and function of the
downtown area and shall not
have any negative impact on
adjoining properties for the
downtown area in general,"
the draft states.
Existing homeowners and
businesses will be grandfa-
thered in and won't be direct-
ly affected by any zoning
changes. However, issues can
arise if an existing property is
placed in a rezoned area.

Officers first made contact
with Morales as he walked
from the shed containing the
weapons and inside grow area
and identified himself as Ariel
Jimenez, giving an incorrect
date of birth, reports stated.
When asked about the dis-
crepancy, reports indicated he
then gave his real name.
After his arrest, 72 .22-cal-
iber bullets and seven 12-
gauge shells were allegedly
found in Morales' pockets.
"One rifle was loaded and
the shotgun had some shells
right above it," LaBelle said.
"They were right there ... just
the presence of them; it could
have gone either way."
Among the paraphernalia
used in the grow operation
were 1,000-watt light bulbs
and elaborate electrical, irri-
gation and climate control
systems, the report said.
Morales was booked into
the Highlands County jail and
is being held without bond.
Jimenez also remains in jail in
lieu of $516,500 bond.


could be problems there,"
Pollard said. "There are a lot
of issues. It's not a simple
process."
The rezoning discussion is
still in its preliminary stages,
and there are many steps left
in the process before actual
changes are made. A series of
workshops with the city's
Planning and Zoning commis-
sion and City Council will
ensue over the next few
months, and the rezoning
plans will begin to take shape
during that process.
"It's all conceptual,"
Pollard said. "We're just
brainstorming right now. But
we do have developers asking
these questions. Downtown is
a delicate thing, in that to
attract people and investors to
the downtown area, we have
to be able to show them that
their development will show a
return on investment."

DAN HOEHNE
Sports Editor


Now is the time to sit


up and take notice

It is easy to be proud of Highlands County's gov-
ernments and civic organizations.
Consider the way many of our services are not only
cutting edge in terms of technology, but creative
regarding the private/public partnerships that sustain
them.
Consider the solid waste landfill, an enclosed sys-
tem that produces a salable product -'methane gas
from garbage. Or the proposed asphalt plant, an
innovative plan, that is projected to save the county
money while providing a steady supply of a much
needed resource.
Think about the cultural institutions, all only possi-
ble because of volunteer workers the Highlands
Little Theater, the Highlands Art League, and the
Children's Museum of The Highlands.
Then there are the private service agencies: The
brand new, faith-based Good Samaritan Gentle Touch
Care Center that provides routine medical care to the
needy uninsured; the New Testament Mission provid-
ing shelter and food for the worst off among us; the
vibrant and extremely active Habitat for Humanity
chapter, building more than two dozen homes in each
of the last two years; and of course, Nu-Hope, The
Salvation Army, and Ridge Area Arc; not to mention
the Childreh's Services Foundation, and especially
the Children's Advocacy Center, which has become a
model for like institutions around the country.
Groups such as Rotary, Kiwanis, the Elks, the
Optimists, the Lions, and The Knights of Columbus
all flourish and are active.
In fact, Highlands County brims with so many good
works it is easy to become self-congratulatory and
complaisant. We sometimes forget much of our suc-
cess is due to a small number of people who continu-
ally rise to the occasion, while the rest of us bask in
their glory.
We live in a dynamic universe, so everything is
always'..changing. In the near future, our representa-
.tives,ilLpiki.a new administrator for the county, anr:;f
a new police chief for Avon Park. We may be asked
to decide whether to continue having the general pub-
lic pick the school superintendent through a general
election, or having the school board do the hiring.
These choices are not as separate as might seem at
first, especially because communities may soon have
to face seriously cutting budgets and our institutions
may face competing for fewer dollars.
Who comes first? The leader with a plan, or the
people with a goal?
Newspapers are having to adjust and adapt to
changing technology and customs too. The need to
know has not changed, what has changed is how we
find out. And how we conduct public debates. We
urge our readers to engage in the discussion about our
future.
Write to us here at the paper the old-fashioned way,
using paper and ink. Or keep up with the times and
visit our new forum section at our Web site,
www.newssun.com, and join in the running debate.
Subjects are broken down into topics, and there are
easy to follow step-by-step instructions. Be concise.
Keep it clean and good natured, but don't be.afraid to
get people 'thinking.
We have inherited a county with an infrastructure to
be proud of, especially given the challenges facing a
smaller population. But we can't simply praise the
past, or just hope for the best. We now have to make
new choices. That's best done after considering all the
angles, and reaching a consensus of what we want the
future to be. Just for starters how do we want to
grow? What kind of opportunities do we want to
attract? What should our priorities be? What are we
willing to pay?

include the hiring of a police
chief and how to pay for fix-
ing sidewalks. Friday night
football makes the Sunday
headlines.
So why would anyone
want to run for office and
take the chance of messing
all that up?
It is definitely not the
fame. I asked around the
other day and tried to see if


Mr. Ed
Says
d Baldridge


"Can you believe
what those idiots
are doing now?"
I'm pretty sure that
phrase originated in
the '60s. But I was
only 6 then.
Sometimes, the
language is more
colorful, but you
get the idea.
Come to think
about it, if I pay
$2,500 for a fund


raising dinner like the nation-
al politicians do, my wife
will call me more than that.
She's practical that way.
Small town officials devel-
op a defense mechanism after
being called an idiot. Four-
out-of five doctors call it a
"siege mentality."
Someone with a "siege
mentality" becomes suspi-
cious when you ask about
your water bill. Mention the
word "budget" and watch
what happens. They try to
appear stunned, then they
stop, blink, look at you
strangely and smile like you
are from another planet. This
is a natural defense mecha-
nism the human race has had
since the days of the
dinosaur.
Natural selection and
dinosaur trampling eliminat-
ed slow politicians back then.
Unfortunately, we no longer
have the dinosaur test.
You can see why no one


really wanted the job until
recent times.
A friend mentioned that
maybe folks run for local
office because they really
want your opinion. I dis-
agree.
There is always a thing
called a public hearing right
before there is a vote on the
budget, but their minds are
already made up.
But it is nice of them to
give the public one last
chance to look foolish on
local cable.
In my opinion, if you wait
for the public hearing, it's
too late.
I voice my opinion early.
Beats all the stress of having
to give my name and address
in the public hearings to
folks who just live up the
street.
So why do perfectly good
people run for office in local
elections? I'm not sure.
Maybe it's because no one
else wants the job.
If you do happen to see an
elected official in the grocery
store or in a restaurant, pat
'em on the back. Say thank
you. This will certainly con-
fuse them. Good. Take that
opportunity to voice your
opinion.
Then vote them out of
office.

Petraeus deserves
more respect
Editor:
It seems that the
Democrats have a certain
loathing for our military as
well as our country. They
are now working diligently to
surrender to our enemies.
It appears that Randy
Ludacer in his letter, "A
Modest Proposal" (News-
Sun, Oct. 7) is helping them
in their effort by making fun
of General David H.
Petraeus' decorations.
Maybe he thinks that these
ribbons and decorations just
jump up on his jacket by
themselves and do not mean
anything. Maybe he thinks
they are like a tie pin that he
could purchase at a depart-
ment store or have been the
prize in a box of Cracker
Jacks.
For Ludacer's information,
every one of the pins and
decorations means something
and were earned. The combat
infantryman's means that he
underwent a baptism of fire
on a battlefield. In other
words, they are not "wel-
fare."
Of course Democrats
wouldn't understand earning
something as opposed to hav-
ing it handed to them for
their vote. Ludacer com-
plained of our "top brass"
being dressed out like a pea-
cock or run around the
Pentagon and Washington in
combat fatigues. Does he
want them to appear naked?
Formal wear for a field
grade officer would include
his medals and decorations.
He dressed formally out of
respect for congress although
he received little respect
from congress. Senator
(Hillary) Clinton doubted his
integrity.
Gen. Petraeus is a United
States Military Academy
graduate (1974), and he has
an outstanding career record
as an infantry officer.
His professional and aca-
demic-advancement record is

also exceptional. He earned
the George C. Marshall
Award as the top graduate of
the U.S. Army Command and
General Staff College (1983)
and later earned master and
doctoral degrees from
Princeton. Notably, the sub-
ject of his doctoral disserta-
tion was "The American
Military and the Lessons of
Vietnam.
It's too bad that the good
general doesn't meet the
expectations of Ludacer and
the Democrats.
Maybe he should consider
the big brother of his modest
proposal, that is manners and
common decency
As for myself, I will not
under any way make fun of a
man that helps to provide the
blanket of security under
which I rise and sleep.

Where is MacBeth's
service to county?
Editor:
I was rather surprised at
the tone of the article con-
cerning a lawsuit filed by Mr.
(Preston) Colby against
Florida's Heartland Rural
Economic Development
Initiative. As I read the arti-
cle it appeared that it was not
about the lawsuit but about
Mr. (Jack) Richie and that he
was mad.
I know both Mr. Colby and
Mr. (Jim) McCollum, the
attorney who filed the action
on behalf of Colby. Both men
fervently believe that all gov-
ernment should operate in the
open according to Florida
law.
What could be simpler? If
all the various government
agencies obeyed the law
there would be no lawsuits.


I have not read the com-
plaint, nor was any synopsis
given in the article. However,
I did read where County
Attorney Ross MacBeth
called Mr. McCollum a cow-
ard and that Mr. MacBeth
was representing a state
agency (FHREDI) but not the
county volunteers.
I have to wonder why we,
the county taxpayers, are
paying Mr. MacBeth over a
quarter of a million dollars a
year as county attorney and
he is not representing the
county in this issue.
I would request that your
paper get a copy of the filing
and print it so that we can all
see what is going on in our
county government circles
and then get a copy of the
official reply so that we can
see both sides of the issue.

mostly a volunteer gig. So it
can't be for the money or the
speaking agreements.
Running for a local elec-
tion cannot be because of the
praise either. The folks who
are in office really need the
praise, but don't get it.
Think of it like the differ-
ence between a professional
athlete and a little league
baseball team. If the hot dogs
cost more than a hotel room,
I think I have a constitutional
right to complain when you
drop the ball. I am sure it is
in the Bill of Rights some-
where.
But the little tikes don't
get paid enough to listen to
someone's mom call them an
idiot. That creates kind of a
lose-lose situation I think.
Local politicians are like
that. They volunteer a lot,
but someone is always call-
ing them idiots. Usually in a
sentence that starts with

No Libra sun

About 6:30 this morning,
I went out to my carport
and enjoyed the feel and
smell of fall in the air. At
the end of the carport, the
lightening sky beckoned me
to be dazzled by the beauti-
ful stars' and planets' con-
figuration visible in the
clear sky.
When I looked at www.
skyandtelescope. com/
observing/ataglance, I
found "This week's Sky at
a Glance." This Web site
told me the triangular for-
mation of stars and planets
I saw was Venus, my astro-
logical ruler, Saturn and
Regulus. I didn't know any-
thing about Regulus, so I
looked it up at
www.astro.uiuc. edu/~
kaler/sow/regulus.html and
found that it is a "first-mag-
nitude star at the heart of
the Leo constellation; a
dwarf star that is 3.5 times
larger and 140 times
brighter than our Sun."
The feature I like most
from this Web site is an
"Interactive Sky Chart
where you can create a cus-
tom naked-eye map of the
whole sky for any place on
Earth, at any time of day or
night, on any date from
1600 to 2400."
When I clicked on
http://stardate.org/resources
/ssguide/venus.html, I found
pictures of Venus' surface.
Like most people before the
Space Age, I pictured Venus
lush and green. The photos
proved Venus' reality is
greatly different.
Interestingly enough,
when I hopped on
www. cfa. harvard. edu/
press/skyreport/, this Web
site said the planets I was
seeing in the morning sky
were "Venus, Saturn and
Mars." Hummmm. They
also said the evening sky
would show me "Mercury
and Jupiter in the south-
western sky, and Neptune
and Uranus in the southern
sky."
I decided I had better
look into all this further.
A great place to start
with local astronomy is a
planetarium. I had
www.Dogpile.com "fetch" a
search for Florida planetari-
ums. At the South Florida
Science Museum in West
Palm Beach Web site
(http://www.sfsm. org/plan-
-etarium.html), I learned that
on Oct. 15, (there will be a)
"Conjunction of Venus and
Saturn Look to the east
just before dawn to see
Venus and Saturn separated
by a scant 3." Then, on
Oct. 21-22 "Orionids
Meteor Shower. (This is)
an annual meteor shower
caused by Earth's motion
through the debris field left
behind by comet Halley.
Though the peak of this
year's shower occurs on the
evening of 21 October,
meteors may be seen from
15 29 October. The moon
will not be in as favorable a
phase as it was for the
Perseid Meteors in August,
being a waxing gibbous..
The meteors shall appear to
radiate from the constella-
tion Orion in the East. The
best viewing can be found
in a dark spot: look east
after midnight."
Want to meet people with
an interest in astronomy?
Check out www.astronomy-
clubs.com/; the Web site is
international for space
observatories, planetariums,
astronomy clubs and muse-
ums.

Diversions


'Heartbreak

The Farrelly brothers used
to make funny movies. Back
in their mid-'90s heyday, the
duo's movies consistently
delivered the comedic goods.
This isn't the mid-'90s
anymore.
"The Heartbreak Kid" is
the brothers' latest offering in
the gross-out comedy genre.
And it's hard to believe that
this film was put together by
the same people who made
comedy classics such as
"Dumb and Dumber,"
"Kingpin," and "There's
Something About Mary." In
fact, it's hard to believe this
film was put together by any-
one who was ever remotely
associated with funny come-
dy.
"The Heartbreak Kid" is
based on the 1972 film of the
same name, which apparently
was pretty good (the film was
91st on the American Film
Institute's 100 funniest come-
dies list). The original was
even nominated for two
Academy Awards. But now,
25 years later, the only award
the remake will be receiving
is a Razzie although it
doesn't even deserve that.
The titular "Heartbreak
Kid" is not wrestler Shawn
Michaels. Instead he's Eddie
Cantrow (Ben Stiller), who
was having serious romantic
issues until he met the beau-
tiful Lila (Malin Akerman).
After a whirlwind six-week
romance, Eddie proposes to
Lila, which predictably turns
out to be a mistake.
While the newlyweds are
on their way to their honey-
moon in Cabo San Lucas,
Eddie begins to realize his
error of rushing into marriage
with a woman he didn't real-
ly love. Oops.
And after Lila suffers an
absolutely horrific sunburn
.-hat.pte-v.nts her from .going
-.. :-outside,Eddie ends tip nieet--
ing another beautiful woman,
named Miranda (Michelle
Monaghan), and falls in love.
Again. Or for the first time,
because apparently he does-
n't love Lila. Except that he
did. But apparently he was
wrong. Or something. It's
almost hard to care at this

point.
See, the movie isn't exact-
ly blessed .with character
development (or, for that
matter, a plot that makes any
sense). We in the audience
are apparently supposed to
. sympathize with Eddie's
r romniti 'onund ru m .;arit
we're also supposed to root
him on as he's wooing
Miranda. And this would be
OK, except for the fact that
Eddie is incredibly unlikable
- there are absolutely no
redeeming qualities about
him.
Here's the problem: Lila is

supposed to be crazy so
crazy that Eddie can't stand
to be with her. But with only
a couple of mild exceptions,
the filmmakers decided to
skip over the parts that actu-
ally establish Lila as crazy.
TiA.nAAteAgreat idea,

dumps her he comes off as
incredibly mean and vindic-
tive, while Lila looks like the
innocent victim.
I'm not sure if the film is
misogynistic, or if the script
is just incredibly stupid (I'ni
certainly leaning towards the
latter), but "The Heartbreak


Kid" portrays women in a
very cynical manner. Plus,
how many women can possi-
bly fall in love with Ben
Stiller in one movie?
When I first left the the-
ater, I was of the opinion that
the film was watchable,
funny in parts, and generally
an average movie. But after
thinking through the film's
ridiculous and contrived situ-
ations, ignorant views of
women and marriage, and
complete lack of genuinely
funny moments, I realized
one simple fact: This is a ter-
rible movie.
The problem with this film
isn't the premise, it's the exe-
cution. The film meanders
through several meaningless
subplots (including a ridicu-
lously long riff on illegal
immigration that isn't the
least bit funny, entertaining
or insightful), and it's also 30
minutes toodlong ..
Ever since Judd Apatow
started making films like
"The 40-Year-Old Virgin,"
"Knocked Up," and
"Superbad" (three of the fun-
niest comedies in years), the
Farrelly brothers brand of
gross-out comedy just seems
stale.

The stakes have been
raised in the comedy genre,
and "The Heartbreak Kid"
isn't up to the challenge. But
even in an Apatow-less era,
"The Heartbreak Kid" would
be a bad movie. Because let's
face it, if your romantic com-
edy isn't romantic or funny,
then your movie is terrible.
.And that's certainly the case
here.

So, do yourself a favor and
avoid this movie at all costs.
Instead, pick up a copy of
"Dumb and Dumber" and
watch comedy the way it's
meant to be done back
when the Farrelly brothers
were actually funny.

on the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, and encourage the women you

Spaghetti dinner planned

at First Presbyterian in AP


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK A
spaghetti dinner will be
served at a sit-down fellow-
ship meal at 6 p.m.
Wednesday by the young peo-
ple at the Avon Park First
Presbyterian Church A.R.P.
The courses will begin with
tossed Italian salads, followed
by the spaghetti plate and
crusty bread. After this, the
youth will serve the dessert,
angel food cake with fruit and
whipped cream, to top off the
meal.
Coffee, water, or iced tea
will be available and served.
The church youth, dressed in
dark slacks and white shirts,
will wait on everyone in the
beautifully decorated fellow-
ship hall.
Following' dinner, films of
the senior high, junior high
camps, and the adventure
camps at Bonclarken
Assembly Grounds in Flat
Rock, N.C., will be shown.
Many of the young people
attended these fantastic
camps during the summer and
are trying to earn a partial
scholarship in order to return
next year.
B6nclarken is the official
conference center and camp-
ground for the Associate
Reformed Presbyterian
denomination in the south-
western mountains of North
Carolina. A free-will offering
will be taken afterward to
help the youth be able to go to
camp this coming summer.
If you have young people
who would enjoy hearing
about the exciting programs
these youth experienced and
see the rafting, rope climbing,
and exciting times they
enjoyed at these camps, bring
them along to the dinner.
Perhaps they might like to
attend a Bonclarken camp this
summer, too.
The public is invited to the
dinner and program, and a
nursery will be provided for


small children.
The dinner will be prepared
and served under the direction
of Maxine Johnson and the
Christian Education
Committee. A time of work-
ing together, learning math
and recipe preparation, as
well as proper serving man-
ners are part of the fun for the
youth as they work as a team
and wait on the diners.
Kathleen Richards and
Ashley Calhoun, who attend-
ed Horizon Camp, did hiking
to a gorgeous waterfall in
Pisgah Forest, then played in
the water there, met a lot of
new friends, heard their
favorite band play in the
evening, enjoyed the good
food and are eager to go again
next summer. Shannon and
Sean Miranda, who went to
the Quest Camp, loved the
swimming, meeting nice
friends, and doing Bible study
with wonderful counselors,
and these youth are also hop-
ing to return this next sum-
mer. April Garcia attended
Reach Camp, which is a true
adventure where self-confi-
dence is built as the group
stays in cabins, goes on off-
site trips, does rock climbing,
hiking, swimming, crafts,
works on the climb tower and
ropes course, and enters the
pamper-pole adventure race.
She also enjoyed the nightly
bonfires by the lake.
The young people will be
on hand during the program
to tell about their experiences
and how much they are look-
ing forward to returning to
Bonclarken again.
The public is invited to the
dinner and program. The
church is on the .shore of Lake
Verona at 215 E. Circle St.
with two entrances on La
Grande Street. The fellowship
hall entry is on La Grande
Street where there is ample
parking and the facilities are
very handicap-accessible.
Call the church at 453-3242.

The adventure of life


One morning last
week I was taking
my kids to school
and we crossed
quickly over some
train tracks on my
way to find some-
thing unique to
think about. The
"fog was thick and V
soupy, the tempera- SI
ture pleasant, and as
I bounced over the
tracks I slammed on Ve
the brakes when it
appeared that the rails had


fer I
piri
ital
mon


vanished into the cloudy
unknown. As I took a closer
look I realize that they had
not vanished, but my eye-
sight was simply not strong
enough to penetrate' what lay
in the distance.
An uneasy feeling washed
over me as I stood between
these two train tracks. As I
gazed into the future I could
not see very far and I kept
wondering if something bad
vwas about to come screaming
around the corner and greet
me head on. As I looked into
the confusion vapor that lay
before me all I could see
filled me with fear. Anxiety
whispered into my ear and
said, the unknown is scary
and your future looks bleak.
Many people are upset
because they do not know
what tomorrow holds. That is
the problem with the future;
we can not predict it until it
has already happened. So we
either worry about the future,
fear the future, pretend
tomorrow will never come or
we can prepare for the future.
It is bad enough that we
know our past; I am thankful
that I do not know my future.


Because if I knew
what good fortune
was coming my way,
it would make me
lazy, complacent and
self-satisfied. If I
knew what misfor-
tune and trouble I
would experience, it
onHS might cripple my
tual life with anxiety or
Sparalyze me with
fear.
Carrell One of the kindest
things the Lord ever
did was to put a curtain over
tomorrow. No big deal that
we do not know what tomor-
row holds as long as we
know the one who holds
tomorrow. Are you apprehen-
sive about your future? Are
you afraid of what might
happen tomorrow? You can
enjoy a meaningful life and a
breathtaking future if you
start by taking. a firm grip on
the present. The best prepara-
tion for the future is to live
Fully today. Choose to live a
life characterized by faith
and never fear to step out
into the unknown.
Verlon Carrell is the minister at
Lake Placid Church of Christ. He
can be reached at 465-4636 or at

Any person whose substantial interests are
affected by the District's action regarding this
permit may request an administrative hearing
in accordance with Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes (F.S.), and Chapter
28-106, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.),
of the Uniform Rules of Procedure. A request
for hearing must (1) explain how the substan-
tial interests of. each person requesting the
hearing will be affected by the District's ac-
tion, or final action; (2) state all material facts
disputed by each person requesting the hear-
ing or state that there are no disputed facts;

tice (or within 14 days for an Environmental
Resource Permit with Proprietary Authoriza-
tion for the use of Sovereign Submerged

within this time period shall constitute a waiv-
er of any right such person may have to re-
quest a hearing under Sections 120.569 and
120.57, F.S.
Because the administrative hearing proc-
ess is designed to formulate final agency ac-
tion, the filing of a petition means that the Dis-
trict's final action may be different from the

cy action. Persons whose substantial interests
will be affected by any such final decision of
the District on the application have the right to
petition to become a party to the proceeding,
in accordance with the requirements set forth
above.

F.S., to settle an administrative dispute re-
garding the District's final action in this matter
is not available prior to the filing of a request
for hearing.

_-_-_ _- -.. The truth about Uncle Clyde


Your Quick Gulde


Avon Park


VS.

LaBelle


Records
Avon Park 1-4; LaBelle 3-2
History
This series dates back to 1939, when
Avon Park won 28-0. Apparently the
Cowboys then wanted no part of the
Red Devils with the next meeting not
until '95. The teams met annually
until '02, with Hurricane Georges
washing out the '96 meeting. Avon
Park holds the overall series lead with
a 5-3 record, including a 56-12 win
the last time the two faced off in '02.


Last Week
Avon Park: Fell to Braden River, 17-0,
on Homecoming night.
LaBelle:Topped district rival Lemon
Bay, 35-10.
Game Notes
* Running backTeddy Allen is
doubtful with a continuing ankle injury.
a This game marks the last home
game of the regular season for Avon
Park as they will play at Bartow,
DeSoto, Sebring and Palmetto.


Coach Speak
Avon Park's Earnest Perkins: "We're
taking every game as they come, week
by week. We gotta work through the
difficulties we have had and move
forward. We keep improving each
week, every week I see a good
difference from the week before. We're
moving forward and are still positive.
These youngsters are really putting
forth the effort."


Highlands to hear 'Recruiting Realities'

National speaker coming to Sebring, Oct. 29, all area student-athletes, parents invited


Highlands County stu-
dent athletes and their par-
ents will have an opportu-
nity to learn all about the
facts, myths and responsi-
bilities of college recruiting
from nationally recognized
recruitment guru Jack
Renkens.
Renkens will be giving
his entertaining, humorous
and informative program at
the Smith Center of
Sebring High School
Monday, Oct. 29 beginning
at 7 p.m.
"So often, parents think
it's the coaches who are the
only ones to get their kids
recruited," Sebring athletic
director Terry Quarles said.
"What he talks about is
how important it is for the
parents to play a part and
to get it started early."
Especially considering,
as figures show, that less
than one out of 100 stu-
dent-athletes can expect to


get a full-fledged, Division
I scholarship.
In his presentation,
Renkens dispels a few
recruiting myths, including
when to gear up recruiting
efforts.
Many think the time is
the same time to start look-
ing at schools, late in jun-
ior year wrong.
Renkens says the best
time to start the recruiting
process is during a student-
athletes' freshman year in
high school.
There is also the belief
that only top athletes can
expect to get opportunities
- wrong again.
There are schools all
over the country that are
looking for good athletes,
good students and good
kids.
"This isn't just for
Sebring," Quarles said.
"I'm hoping students and
their parents from Avon

assembly of student-athletes and their parents.


Park, Lake Placid, all over
Highlands County, come to
this to help them all."
Admission to the pro-
gram is complimentary for
all student-athletes and


their families so they can
learn from an expert in the
field how to maximize their
opportunities for a scholar-
ship and a college educta-
tion.


A summer to remember ..
.Like my grandma used to
say, "the truth ain't in him."
She was talking about one
of my uncles who spent most
of his days off down on a
creek bank.
Under all his callousness,
uncle Clyde was really a
good honest person but he
had a tendency to stretch the
truth a bit when asked about
the size of his catch and just
outright lie when asked about
the location of his fishing
holes.
I was just a kid at the time
and I wondered why he
wouldn't tell where and how
he caught all those fish.
I finally learned that what
my grandma said was true
about most fishermen.
Uncle Clyde has been gone
for quite some time now but
I suspect he is still telling his
fish stories up there on the
banks of a Golden creek.
So, when talking to a fisher-
man and you want the truth,
don't ask about his catch or
his bait and certainly not
about his honey hole
because, "the truth ain't in
99.9 percent of them," and I
can't claim to be the other .1
percent either.
Uncle Clyde was a true
outdoorsman he fished,.
hunted and trapped.
Working in a sawmill as
the head sawyer he turned
huge logs into lumber.
He and his wife Leona had
no children and lived near
my grandma.
While growing up, I spent
many summers on my grand-
parents farm.
Some of that time was
spent with my aunt and
uncle.
This was during the great
depression and Clyde could-
n't afford a store-bought
boat, so he built his own
from poplar lumber he sawed
at the mill.
During one of my summer


Outdoors
Lloyd Jones
visits, he asked me if I would
like to help him build a boat.
He didn't need any printed
plans, he carried the plans in
his head.
It was to be a flat bottom
john boat, fourteen feet long
with three seats, one in each
end and one in the middle.
With only a pair of saw
horses, a handsaw, a wood
plane, an axe, a hammer and
a sack of nails, we started
work. Surprisingly, just a
couple of days later we had
the boat ready for pitch and
paint.
Later, Clyde sawed the
paddles out of the same
poplar used in the rest of the
boat.
He pitched the bottom and
the seams. The pitch had to
set a while before we could
paint the boat.
Days later we took it to the
creek for a trial. We floated
down creek about a quarter
of a mile and paddled back
up to our launching site.
Due to Clyde's experience,
the boat handled perfectly.
We both were proud of our
handiwork.
We left the boat at the
creek chained to a tree on the
bank. Clyde fished the creek
with trot lines and drop lines
for catfish.
The drop line was a short
line tied to a stout limb cut
from a tree on the bank and
shoved into the bank at an
angle that let the line hang

Storm sweeps through Clearwater,


takes Shoctoberfeast tournament


The Sebring Storm 14-and-
under travel team won the
NSA Shoctoberfeast tourna-
ment in Clearwater last week-
end.
Winning this tournament
qualifies the team for the win-
ter national championships
being held Dec 9-11 with over
150 teams competing.
The Storm was untouched
over the weekend winning all
six games they played.
Saturday, the team beat the
Pasco Longhorns 7-1 and the
Tampa Heatwave 6-5.
The Storm was then seeded
first for Sunday's elimination
play and continued to roll -
beating the Longhorns again 7


-1, Tampa Tritons 13-0 and an
impressive 7th-inning, come-
from-behind win to beat the
Clearwater Threashers 7-6.
Game MVP's were chosen
by the umpires after each
game and were given to sev-
eral Storm players.
Chelle Smith of Frostproof
earned an honor for her pitch-
ing performance in game one,
Haley Pack did likewise for a
two-out, two-RBI double in
game two, which plated the
crucial fifth and sixth
runs; Kaitlyn Ostrander won
the honor for an inside-the-
park home run which three-
hopped the 300-foot men's
fence in game four and


Kristina Garcia was awarded
for her defense and timely hit-
ting in the championship
game.
'"We finished second in our
last two tournaments in Fort
Myers because we were miss-
ing a few key players none
more important than our
catcher Wendy Negrin who
was out on a family cruise,"
head coach Mickey Pack said.
"Wendy just brings a presence
to the field that teams fear
and that is a great arm that
holds teams at bay and gives
our pitchers the -confidence to
throw any pitch needed when
she is there."

Getting to know a little golf


I've never understood golf.
Grown men chasing a
small ball literally hundreds
of yards and trying to stuff it
down a small hole.
Until recently, I am not
one to watch golf on televi-
sion or even care about the
sport much.
I've tried to golf with
friends, but I don't have the
skill or the actual knack I
play football.
Hitting people from a
three-point-stance, that I
understand.
To this day, if I see a foot-
ball on the ground, my train-
ing kicks in and I want
to fall on it and cover it
up.
A loose ball must be a
fumble, but linemen were not
allowed to pick up anything.
We had whole drills where
it was my job just to fall.
I remember one game
where an official on the side-
lines dropped a ball, I swear
half of the linemen dove for
it.
Makes for great fun at
family outings, but the kids
get a little nervous when we
are in the park with other
folks.
Recently, I was assigned to
shoot some pictures of a
local high school golf game,
and I thought to myself,
"What do I know about
golf?"
Nothing really.
After watching three very
competent high school
golfers, I think I kind of
understand the game a little
better.
It appears that there are
two types of golfers at the
amateur level.
I can't speak for the pro-
fessionals, all I've seen is
Tiger Woods and his Buick
commercial. Nice music.
One type of amateur golfer
is social in nature.


\







ED BALDRIDGE
Having a chat, a few
laughs. Eighteen holes and
maybe a beer with your bud-
dies.
There is often a small level
of competitiveness between
each golfer.
Nice way to unwind.
Nothing wrong with that,
and you get some exercise.
The other type of golfer is
more quiet and reserved on
the course Zen-like if you
will.
It is just you against you.
The mechanics of the game
are the same, but there is lit-
tle or no chatter with the
Zen-golfer.
Even the spectators are
reserved and respectful.
It was a typical Florida
morning, warm and clear. A
little on the muggy side.
As I watched these ath-
letes, I began to understand
something of the skill and
discipline it actually takes to
coerce that ball in the right
direction every time.
Before I knew it, I was lost
in that sports zone that every
good athlete understands at
one point.
It is a different plane alto-
gether.
I used to get there when I
played football, and I have
striven to reach that calm
center again to no avail.
My wife understands it -
she gets that calm dreamy
look when we go to the
beach.


Take a moment and close
your eyes.
Feel the sun on your head
and shoulders; not harsh but
a gentle warmth.
Like a warm towel on a
cold day.
Smell, the grass. Clean and
crisp. Feel the slight breeze
across your face. Sense the
dew just beginning to kiss
your toes through your shoes.
Hear the sweet sound of
birds celebrating life.
You feel grounded. Solid.
But there is no weight on
your shoulders, and your
head is raised slightly, and
not bowed.
It's you and yourself. No
thoughts clamoring to get in.
Everything is at peace inside
and out.
Serenity.
Now, pull your focus in.
Bending your attention back
to a small white point at your
feet and slightly in front of
you.
Everything else begins to
fade, and your concentration
sharpens.
Your shoulders are relaxed,
and you body is loose.
A gentle pull back on the
club, no force. It stops on its
own at the top.
A pull in the other direc-
tion from your back hand,
and if you did it right, a
smooth pendulum swing in a
perfect arc to strike the ball
with
a solid tinny sounding
thunk.
Without thought, you fol-
low through. Head down
body still loose, letting'the
weight of the club continue
in on its own path.
You don't even look at the
ball flying down the carefully
manicured fairway.
You just know it is flying
true.
That is golf.

CLYDE
Continued from 1D
out into the water.
A siall sunfish was used
for bait and had just enough
line so that he swam in a cir-
cle creating a disturbance on
top of the water.
Trot lines had several
hooks tied to the main line
with short pieces of line. The
line was weighted to keep it
on the bottom while being
tied from one bank to the
opposite bank.
Uncle Clyde caught a lot
of big catfish from the creek
using his home-made john
boat.
I hope he knew how much
I enjoyed helping build that
boat and all the hours we
spent together fishing on the
creek.
