Alpaca A-Go-Go

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com

LORIDA This is a story of loss, love and giving, softened with laughter and
hope.
It began in the summer of 2000, when Joe Loperfido -18, and just graduated from
high school was driving down a highway in Broward County, just before report-
ing to basic training in the Marine Corps.
Then a vehicle going in the opposite direction swerved into his lane.
He tried to avoid a crash by turning sharply to his right,-colliding sideways with a


cement pylon at the verge instead.
The collision's energy threw Joe' side to for some
side with great force. The result was crip- lyst for fi
pling brain damage, rendering him helpless But ho'

CRA disbands
News-Sun staff report
AVON PARK' -The Avon
Park Downtown CRA
Advisory Board voted unani-
mously to dissolve on
Thursday night citing issues
of redundancy and unneeded
costs to taxpayers.
"I agree," responded
board Chairman Devon
Donaldson to the motion.
"Once there is a (work) plan
in place, there is no need for
this board anymore. I know
everyone is frustrated with
this process. It's a hassle for
people to have to come to us
first for facade grants, and
then go to another board. We
can't really give them the
final say, and that's just a
waste of everybody's time."
The second layer of
bureaucracy was created
when the Avon Park City
Council decided to assume
the role of CRA Board.

ame a series of happenings that
seemed heaven sent.
First, Domm
insisted that


Loperfido could live her life's dream and
have a farm in the country, even if it wasn't
in Colorado.
The only questions were, what would they
raise, and where would they go.
Loperfido had bought a two-acre property
with a house in Lorida. She had been plan-
ning on renting it out as an investment when
it was severely damaged by Hurricane
Jeanne in 2004.
When her other son's friend told her and
Domm about alpaca fleece, and how it was
becoming a popular textile, it got them to
thinking.
So when another friend, who had moved to'
Frostproof to raise alpacas, got in touch with
them about an annual meeting of alpaca
owners in Sebring. Loperfido saw it as
destiny knocking.
"It was appealing, raising livestock you
doft ha e to kill," she said.
She and Domm mo\ed withJoeinto
the house in Lorida. They made the
repairs and went about creating the
farm of her dreams.

Don't expect a


quick end to


housing slump

Expert predicts mid-2008,
maybe later Ibefore rebound
By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphyv@ newssun.com
SEBRING The ;current housing slump
,won't end until at least mid-2008, and
maybe not until 20(09.
This, according .'o William Pittenger, a
37-year veteran of, the real estate industry
who serves as senior vice president, chief
real estate econonjrist and risk advisor at
Seacoast National .Bank.
Pittenger provided his analysis of how
the housing slump happened, what effects
it's having boih local\ and nationally, and
how long until the'.mrnrkel turns around dur-
ing a two-hour semrhinar Friday.
The affects of thne housing downturn can
be seen locally, Plittenger said, specifically
in the number of' foreclosures. While the
national foreclosure rate is 1 for every 557
households, the rate in Highlands County is
one per 70.
Most of the coutntywide foreclosures are
for home loans 'in excess of $200,000,
Pittenger said, which he said was a case of
"people buying tob much house and betting,
on the future."

success in AP

94 people took advantage
By BAlRRY FOSTER
News-Siizn correspondent
AVON PARK It appears the experi-
ment with early voting has been a success in
the City of Charnm with a steady stream of
residents casting their ballots at city hall.
In all, 94 people came in to make their
choices known for mayor and city council.
City Clerk Sarahj'Adelt said city officials
had been delighted with the turnout.
"We'd 'expected about 50, so to have 94
- we're real pleased with the turnout," she
said.
The process began Monday with 29 vot-
ers going to the polls, Tuesday there were
22, nine on Wednesday and by noon
Thursday another 13 came in with 21 cast-
ing ballots on Friiday in the voting area set
up at city hall. Adelt said those who took
the opportunity to vote were greeted by a
fully equipped polling place.
"We have the booth and the scanner and
everything," Adelt said.
It's the same equipment that will be used
on Election Day. There will be no early vot-
ing Monday.

Local residents lighting


trees for the troops


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING Whe:n the war
in Iraq started,. Darlene
Watkin showed her support
for the troops by selling yel-
low bows to raise nnoney for
local military members.
Now, she's doing it again -
this time with Christmas
trees.
Watkin is spear- 'I'T
heading a drive to'
get all 90 residents in Ve
the Thunderbird COnc
Hills South neigh-
borhood to light a that p
Christmas tree in the
front yard to show a
support for the mili- forg
tary. The idea is to J-6
take pictures of the our
trees lining the
neighborhood and who
send them over along dyi
with Christmas care
packages to troops every
stationed overseas.
"I'm just very con- DARI
cerned that people WAT
are forgetting our
boys who are dying every
day," Watkin said. "]During
the holiday season, we want
to get everyone to light a tree
for the troops. It's something
to send over saying 'we're
still with you.'"
The wire trees stand
approximately three feet tall
and can be equipped with red,
white or blue lighting (or a
combination of all three). The
trees are being hand-m ade for
Thunderbird Hills by resident
Bob Harris, and several can
already be seen throughout.


the neighborhood, including
at the clubhouse.
Residents of the park were
quick to jump onboard with
the idea, Watkin said.
"We presented the idea in
our (neighborhood) newslet-
ter, and one half of the park
signed up right away," she
said. "We're hoping that other
parks take on the
n JUSt project, too."
The majority of

said, and many have

Watkin is hoping
LENE that the Christmas
rKIN tree project will
spread outside
Thunderbird Hills. Not only
does she want to see other
neighborhoods in the area
adopt the idea, but she's also
hoping that it will spread to
area businesses as well.
"I would love to see it
become. a tradition," Watkin
said. "This would be a perfect
way to highlight the troops."
The American Legion Post 69
in Avon Park (of which
Watkin is the Children and
Youth chairman), is "100 per-
cent behind" the idea already.

Bomb rumor sends APHS

officials looking for answers

Nothing found after intensive search


By TREY CHRISTY

AVON PARK Stories
passed on to parents at home
are similar to the reason the
incident started in the first
place word of mouth.
Avon Park High School
officials heard a rumor
Thursday about a bomb being
taken onto caripus.
"We spent (Thursday)
evening and last night trying
to find details, but found
nothing," Assistant -Principal
Seth Lambert said Friday
morning.
"To be proactive we had an
officer on campus throughout
last night and we searched
backpacks and purses of kids
(when they arrived on cam-


pus) to make sure."
One of the APHS deans
worked late Thursday with
the Avon Park Police
Department going to several
homes of students, turning up
nothing.
"We covered all the bases
we could ... it all got spread
around and when the word
came to us we had no idea
where it even started,"
Lambert said. "It was all
hearsay stuff; we took it seri-
ously but we never had any
proof there was anything to
it."
Lambert praised the APPD
for their cooperation with
APHS staff to ensure Friday's
classes and Pep rally went off
without a hitch.

outpouring of support she
received for the yellow bow
project, which raised thou-
sands of dollars for the
American Legion and the
National Guard.
Now that the war has been
ongoing for so long, Watkin is
doing her part to ensure that
the soldiers still fighting


aren't being forgotten.
"We hear so many negative
things about the war, we for-
get our young people are still
over there," Watkin said.
"On a personal level, we
want to let the kids know we
care."

tact Watkin at 314-9107.

AVON PARK Trailers
were the hot ticket item for'
thieves last week in Avon
Park.
On Oct. 29 a cargo trailer
valued at $2,350 was stolen
from a business on Forest
Hills Drive.
Later, on Oct. 31, a 16-foot
utility trailer, valued at
$3,000, was stolen from
Lassiter Street.
Avon Park residents are
asked to take extra precau-
tions to prevent the theft of
their trailer, starting with ade-
quate lighting, Commander
Mike Rowan of the Avon Park


Police Department said.
"Lighting is a good thing,
and if you are using (the trail-
er) it is a good idea to keep it
secured to the vehicle. Those
trailers have locks on them
that secure up to the vehicle,"
he said.
Other tips for keeping a
trailer off the radar of thieves
is to park a vehicle near it to
make it harder for them to
hook it up and take it away,
chain and lock it up and be
wary of suspicious vehicles.
"If they see something that
seems out of place they
should give their local law
enforcement a call," Rowan
said.


Avon Park council, county commission to meet jointly on AP airport issue


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Another
step toward solving the prop-
erty problems of Roland
Dilley may be taken Monday
evening when members of the
-' Avon Park City Council are(
joined by Highlands County
commissioners for a. joint
workshop.
The two boards are looking
to hammer out a zoning ordi-
nance and interlocal agree-
ment for the Avon Park
Executive Airport.
The complex issue began to
unfold in December 2005,
when Dilley put his 59--acre
former citrus nursery on the
market after losing the opera-
tion to citrus canker. He,was
approached by real estate
developer Jacob Nagar in
January 2006.
Nagar had proposed a
mixed use development; for
the property, which is directly
across busy State Road 64
from the'Avon Park airport.
To be known as Waterways
Village, it was to have been a
600- unit, gated housing
development fronted by ibusi-
ness zoning for retail busi-
nesses and restaurants.


But when the property
came up to the city for annex-
ation, the problems began.
Speaking on behalf of the
airport, attorney John'
MdClure outlined issues relat-
ing..to a runway protection
'z'nie '(RPZ) that extended
across State Road 64 and into
Dilley's property. Council
members were told that
should they annex the proper-
ty and allow the development,
and there was a plane crash,
the city could be held liable.
In an effort to solve the
problem, Nagar offered to
purchase the airport for $10
million but the proposal was
turned down. Ultimately, the
entire deal fell apart.
Then, in the summer of last,
year, the county became
involved when Dilley decided

"Apparently when the

contended that before any air-
pbrt zoning ordinance could
be considered, both' the city
and the county first must
comply with the interlocal
agreement outlined in sec-
tions of Florida's state
statutes.
Under those provisions, it
appears the county must come
up with a zoning ordinance

adopt an interlocal agreement
agreeing to the ordinance.

The measure that will be
discussed at Monday night's
meeting, would establish

zones as well as regulate and
restrict the height of struc-
tures in those areas.
Shirey also expects a repre-

ty's airport consultant, Wilbur

there as well.

$45,000 in power
stolen for grow house
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING Another
$45,000 in electricity was
diverted from the power com-
pany to grow marijuana,
according to reports from the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office.
The fourth arrest and third
grow house shut down last
week occurred Thursday after-
noon at 1221 Evanston St.
Amado Rivero, 56, of
Sebring, was arrested and
charged with larceny between
$20,000 and $100,000, produc-
ing marijuana, trafficking mari-
juana more than 25 pounds,
and possession of narcotic
equipment.
Rivero lives in the rented
home with his wife, who was
not present at the time of the


investigation. Rivero denied
his wife had any knowledge of
the marijuana production that
went on for four to six months,
reports stated.
The alleged operation was
actively growing 55 plants.
Rivero remained in the
Highlands County Jail Friday
afternoon in lieu of $256,000
bond.


included prepaid calling cards
in a package a family member
sent to him in Iraq.
In his card, Harrison, who
is stationed at the 31st
Combat Support Hospital,
relayed that "it was so nice for
a soldier to be able to call
home and speak to a loved
one." He also said that "it's
the little things that count and
make it possible for soldiers
to do their jobs in Iraq."


Goin' Postal, owned and
operated by Alan and Gale
Decker, began participating in
the Cell Phones for Soldiers
program earlier this year and
is a local drop off location for
used and no longer needed
cell phones. The phones are
then shipped off to a company
that recycles them for re-sale
to other countries.
The money generated by re-
sale of these phones is used to


purchase pre-paid phone
cards for our military person-
nel that Goin' Postal places in
all packages they send out to
the nation's military.
To date, Goin' Postal has
collected a total of 158
phones and as a result they
have been able to send
approximately 100 pre-paid
phone cards to soldiers on
military bases throughout the
world.


The Deckers say that "this
is one way that we can all
support our nation's military
and the dedication and com-
mitment of not only the troops
but also their loved ones at
home." As we head into the
holidays we all remember
family and we are especially
happy to know that we are
helping our military families

they may be separated by

iet the whole story.

There's more to cremation than just the cremation.
For example, did you know that the cremated remains
can be buried, scattered or memorialized in a niche or
mausoleum? Prior to or following the cremation, families
can choose to have a service or gathering. In fact, we
encourage it. For many families, the service is the first
step toward moving ahead after a loss. Call or mail
the attached coupon for a free brochure that tells
the entire cremation story.

VOTING
Continued from 1A
There were no incidents to
report, other than a couple of
ladies who came in only to
find that they weren't quali-
fied to vote in the city.
"They'd been over doing
aquatics at the Jacaranda and
one of them was telling the
other 'We can't vote because
we don't live inside the city,'
and she was right," Adelt
said.
Moreover, reaction to early
.voting has been overwhelm-
ingly positive, with several
residents commenting on the
effort by the city to offer the
pre-election opportunity.
"We had a person who
works as a nurse who came in
and told us 'I'm so happy that
you're doing this, otherwise I
wouldn't have had a chance
to vote because I have to
work next Tuesday," she said.
"A lot of others have *said
they liked it better because
there was not a crowd."
Early voting was not 'the
only way for voters who
would not be available for
Tuesday's official election to
cast a ballot. Residents also
could ask for an absentee bal-
lot. Adelt had only one such
request and she referred them
to Highlands County
Supervisor of Elections Joe
Campbell, whose office is
handling that particular por-
tion of the election.
She said there had been no
politicking in'or around the
polls, although city officials
had anticipated there might
have been some of that kind
of activity. In fact, they had
marked off designated areas
that showed the borders
where candidate's supporters
could legally stand or talk
about their campaigns.
On the ballot is the
mayor's post plus the city
council seat being vacated by
councilman Doug Eason.
There are four candidates in
the running for each of the
positions.
Incumbent mayor Sharon
Schuler is facing a challenge
from Ed Dickerson -technolo-
Sgy director for the Redlands
Christian Migrant
Association, Gonzalo Lezama
who works at Wal-Mart and
former mayor Gordon
Marshall.
Running for Eason's seat
are Avon Park Air Force
Range mechanic Paul Miller,
James Rahenkamp a retired
minister and educator, long-
time resident and educator
Aljoe Hinson and Army
National Guard Staff Sgt.
Michael Shirey, who recently
returned from deployment to
Iraq and is the son of City

Statewide, Florida ranks
second in the nation in fore-
closures, behind only
California. In September
alone there were 33,000 fore-
closures in the state. The
delinquency rate for all mort-
gages is just more than 4.5
percent, which is the' highest
figure since 2001-02. Despite
these alarming figures,
Pittenger said it wasn't an
entirely bleak picture; after
all, 96 percent of loans are
still being paid on time.
Despite high foreclosure
numbers, Highlands County
has managed to avoid some of
the problems facing Florida's
coastal areas because of rela-
tively slow growth.
The county's 'growth rate
has held at around 1.4 percent
each year:.,since 2000..;Since-
the county had lower average
home prices, the price run-up
that lead to the nationwide
housing crisis wasn't as high
here. Consequently, the price
downtown shouldn't be quite
as sharp as other locales.
Highlands County has also
suffered from the housing
downturn in other ways. The
listing volume for houses on
sale has increased significant-
ly, with 834 listings in

hard-hit, but Pittenger said a
construction slowdown is
necessary in order for the
housing market to reach its
'equilibrium point.
As for what started the
housing slump in the first
place, Pittenger blamed "flip-
per-speculators" who entered
the market and created a
"feeding frenzy" that was also
helped along by sub-prime
builders and lenders.
The peak of the housing
bubble was reached in'early
2005, Pittenger said, and sales
stopped a year later. Inventory
continued to grow much
faster than demand, however,
due to the large number of
housing developments that
had already been approved.
The buying frenzy contin-
ued until the bubble burst in
2006. But by late 2005, there
were already more homes
built than there were people
to occuip\ them a ituation
Pittenger called "a "classic
bubble condition."
Pittenger expects home
prices to fall an average of 20
to 25 percent from their high
in 2005, with prices stabiliz-
ing at 2003-2004 levels. The
next'"up cycle" won't begin
with a single event, he said.
Instead, consumers will start
slowly re-entering the market
piece by piece, beginning
with those who need a home
and ending with retirees.

AVON PARK The oak
tree is expected to survive.
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies arrested a 34-year-
old Avon Park Correctional
Institute officer Saturday
morning for allegedly shoot-
ing up her oak tree.
"She was practicing her
trigger control," Sheriff's Sgt.
Mitch Moore said. "She was
cranking off some rounds."
Katherine Wright was
arrested for using a firearm
under the influence of alco-
hol, allegedly having con-
sumed several drinks and still
working on a half a can of
Keystone Light when officers
arrived at her Carmel Road
residence in Avon Park Lakes.
Wright told the arresting
deputies she was having trou-
ble with her weapons qualifi-
cations at work and didn't
know it was illegal to dis-
charge a weapon in one's
front yard.
She used an oak tree for
target practice, allegedly dis-


charging four rounds into it
before her 9mm Jennings
semi-automatic pistol
jammed, trying to feed two
rounds from the magazine,
Moore said.
Other than the tree, which
she allegedly shot from about
10 feet away, there were no
injuries. Wright's mother was
home, but slept through the
6:30 a.m. shooting.
The pistol was her own, not
one issued by Department of
Corrections, Wright said,
explaining it, a magazine and
unspent rounds were collect-
ed for evidence.
He said Wright had bonded
out of jail by early afternoon
Saturday.
Witnesses who passed by
Wright's residence notified
deputies who were at parked
at U.S. 27 and Stryker Road.
With safety in mind, they
deputies went to the, location
of the shooting. They are try-
ing to locate the witnesses for
more information.
Moore can be reached at
402-7200.

Gliding, leaping, climbing fleecing, local alpacas win hearts and minds


Continued from 1A
ens, and a handful of cats.
Loperfido says everyone
looks out for the other. The
donkeys, for example, guard
over the chickens.
She and Domm have a
nickname for their place.
They call it The Farm of
Eden. Officially their busi-
ness is called Alpaca Angels
of the Highlands.
The farm faces a broad
open expanse of cattle range,
but itself is quite cozy. Folk
art abounds. There are color-
ful sign posts and hand-paint-
ed sayings.
Domm keeps the pole barn
cool by hanging carpet
remainders like curtains, with
triangles, stars and crescent
moon shapes cut out.
The alpacas, of course, add
significantly to the atmos-
phere, which is soothing.
Maybe it's the way the ani-
mals' heads gracefully bob as
they move, often in unison.
Or their big lustrous eyes that
stare, fluffy heads cocked,
wary yet curious.
They are an out-of-this-
world kind of animal, so
obviously different, with
their curved ears and unique
way of moving; as if they
glide over the ground instead
of walk on it.

Dreamers with their
feet on the ground
In any case, it would be
easy to mistake Domm and
Loperfido for impractical
dreamers, but they turn out to
have a sharp head for busi-
ness as well.
Currently, Domm
explained, the main way to
make money raising alpacas
is to get other people to buy
them.
Not as pets, he added -
they are big and require both
space and care. As herd ani-
mals, they do not do well by
themselves.
SHowever, the federal tax
.code allows the costs.of rais-
ing alpacas to be used as a
tax write-off.
This means, Domm said, a
person can own an alpaca,
have a surrogate raise it, and
still write off a portion of the
expenses at the end of the
year.
Because of this,-he decided
to get the word out about
alpacas as mild-mannered,
good-natured investments.
He began to think about
creating a promotional tour.

Planning the trip
Having decided to travel

on buying the car, when she
saw an advertisement for
one with an alpaca in it.


with two of his alpacas,
Chuck Domm took the idea a
step further he decided to
make a movie about the jour-
ney too.
"I thought," Domm said,
"that to be able to sell
.alpacas, it would be helpful if.
people knew what they
were."
For example, he added,
people don't know that
alpacas once lived on the
North American continent.
Fossils 50,000 years old
have been found in Nebraska.
The animals actually migrat-
ed down into South America,
Domm said, where they were
prized by the Incas and herds
grew to number in the mil-
lions.
At the same time, Domm
doesn't know the reason,
alpacas disappeared from the
north where they'd been.
"We're out to bring them
back," he said with a grin.
Raegan Rothchild, an inde-
pendent producer, became
interested in the project. She
agreed to accompany Domm
Son a trip to upstate New
York, where he would take
two alpacas to visit The Why
Be Normal Farms, a famous
breeder of the animals. She
would film the venture and
cut it into a movie.
Loperfido would stay home


He's Stephen Co

LORIDA Chuck Domm
and Lorraine Loperfido share
many things, including a
whimsical sense of humor.
A homemade signpost at
the entrance to their farm
points the way to Las Vegas,
Flagstaff, Ariz., and New
Orleans among many cities.
But at the top, in blue and
red lettering, they announce
this is Colbert Nation.
That is because they are
fans of Stephen Colbert, the
Comedy Central satirist with
a 30-minute weeknight tele-
vision show, the Colbert
Report.
One of their alpacas they
describe as slightly neurotic,
but endearing. He had been


born prematurely at another
farm and wasn't thought
promising.
They decided to try to
increase his self-esteem by
naming him for someone
with plenty of self-confi-
dence. Colbert was the first
person they thought of.
The trick seems to have
worked, Domm said. With his
new sophisticated name,
alpaca Colbert began to come
out of his shell, especially


to take care of the homefront
and Joe.
To make the trip more
interesting and meaningful,
Domm and Rothchild
planned on visiting state cap-
itals and historical sites as
they traveled north and then
returned home.
Then Domm met Harriet
and Bob Porter of the Lake
Placid Mural Society. The
Porters saw an'opportunity to
spread the word about Lake
Placid, and gave Domm a
stack of mural society book-
lets to pass out along the

after representing alpacas in
general on a trip to the north.
Coming home with a
medal on his chest, he was
surrounded by a bevy of
admiring alpaca females. In
the past, Domm said, alpaca
Colbert would have cringed.


way.
Soon after, the chamber of
commerce got in touch. Its
.president of operations,
Eileen May, said that
Florida's Lake Placid had
been wanting to create a sis-
ter-city type of relationship
with New York's Lake
Placid, would Domm be will-
ing to act as an ambassador
and deliver a message of
greeting, which included,
among other things, caladium
seeds.
He would, and the trip's
itinerary grew yet again. He


would now be away at least
27 days.

Making a movie
Domm and Rothchild visit-
ed capital cities from
Tallahassee to Boston.
Because of their schedule
they sometimes arrived after
midnight.
But state capitals are typi-
cally well lit at night, with
marble staircases and gilt
domes shimmering strangely.
They made for excellent
backdrops as Rothchild set
up her camera and Domm got
the animals into place.
In every case, Domm said,
it didn't take long for police
cars to arrive; the officers
suspicious. Until, that is, they
caught sight of the alpacas.
Then, in every case, they
melted in delight, and insist-
ed of having their pictures
taken with them.
One security guard thanked
them, because he discovered
the external remote cameras
worked well when he used
them to zoom in on the ani-
mals.
In fact, Domm said, the
alpacas were crowd stoppers
wherever they went.
By the side of Niagara
Falls, newly weds went first
to meet them.
In Colonial Williamsburg
more than 3,000 photographs
were taken.
The alpacas stood on the
steps of the Capital Building,
and on the Mall, and at the
George Washington
Monument in Washington
D.C.; beside indian mounds
and in Jacksonville's football
stadium.
.By the end of trip, Domm
said, the animals became
quite adept at climbing up
and down steep sets of stairs
although why this should
be a surprise, Loperfido said
laughing, she didn't know.
After all, she pointed out,
alpacas are-mountain range
animals.
The alpacas had their pic-
tures taken in restaurants and
universities; in the Allegheny


Mountains, with mist and
deer in the background; in
New England with the fall
leaves as backdrop; at the
Cornell University's Maple
Syrup Research Center; at
Yorktown, Va.; Bunker Hill,
Ma.; St. Augustine, and the
abolitionist John Brown's
Lake Placid, N. Y. farm.
There Domm had a scare
when a guard came running
toward them, warning that
black bears had been spotted,
and there they were, with
bear bait on leashes.

The return home
The high point of the trip,
Domm said, was stopping off
in New York's Lake Placid.
There they were welcomed
with ceremonies at the 1932
Olympic skating arena, and
the 120 meter ski jump.
Both alpacas were awarded
medals by the city's mayor.
Returning to Florida's
Lake Placid, the alpacas were
hailed as heroes once again,
Lake Placid's Mayor Tom
Katsanis calling them official
emissaries.
Domm swears the two
alpacas now stand taller and
prouder. Both were somewhat
timid at the start of the
adventure, but returned with
newfound self-confidence.
The one named for B.B.
King, the legendary blues
musician, was immediately
surrounded by the other
alpacas upon returning home,
Domm said. In the middle of
the group.he suddenly spun a
tight turn, and leaped into the
air, then ran a stiff-legged lap
around the yard, just like a
receiver .strutting after a
touchdown.
Domm hopes the movie
will get a theater release, or
find a home on Animal
Planet or similar channel. At
the least it will be available
on DVD, once the post pro-
duction is done.
For more information call
Domm or Loperfido at 655-
3255.

while singing a sweet alpaca

Take pity on the



semi-unemployed


I began this column in
September of 2004.
That means I have writ-
ten over three years of
weekly adventures,
although I did take off a
week's vacation twice, and
lost several months when I
was sick and then recover-
ing early in 2006.
I haven't counted the
exact number of Tuffin' It
features I've written, but
I'd bet money it's close to
a hundred.
It has gotten-to the point
that when co-workers sug-
gest job ideas, in most
cases I've already done it.

The astute among you
will have realized by now
that I'm stalling.
Here's the situation.
I could use your help.
Especially if you are in a
position to make something
happen, I appeal most to
you.
We need a fresh wave of
occupation suggestions,
and some brave people to
let me try what it is they
do.
The smellier and squishi-
er the job the better, but
difficult or interesting jobs
are high on the list too.
Heck, any way we make a
living.

The News-Sun www.newssun.com


Florida businesses encouraged to

utilize valuable employment resource


Special to the News-Sun
Recognizing the tremen-
dous value of those who have
served the country, Florida
Governor Charlie Crist has
proclaimed November as Hire
a Veteran Month. The gover-
nor's proclamation reaffirms
commitment to those who
have served the nation in times
of war and peace.
Coordinated by the Agency
for Workforce Innovation, the
Florida Department of
Veterans' Affairs, and work-
force partners, Workforce
Florida Inc. and the regional
workforce boards (Heartland
Workforce-Regional
Workforce Board 19, which
serves Highlands, Hardee and
DeSoto counties), this initia-
tive is designed to remind
employers of the unmatched
economic resource provided
by the state's veterans.
"Florida is home to an esti-
mated 1.8 million veterans and
has the fastest growing veter-
ans population in the nation,"


AWI Director Monesia T.
Brown said. "Our veterans
possess valuable leadership,
business and technical skills
gained while serving their
country. They are a versatile
and well-trained resource for
employers and Florida is for-
tunate to have ready access to
such a highly-skilled work-
force."
AWI is committed to meet-
ing the needs of the heroic vet-
erans and the 'employers
through high quality programs
and services. Such programs
include employment and train-
ing initiatives such, as the
Veterans' Employment &
Training System, Hire a Vet,
Citizen Soldier and the
Military Families program.
Last year AWI's One Stop
Career Centers served more
than 74,000 veterans, with
more than 12,000 recently sep-
arated from the Armed Forces.
Florida's veterans come to the
workforce highly adept with
new technology and are skilled


and trained in a variety of
areas.
The state is committed to
bringing employers and veter-
ans together using the full net-
work of workforce partner-
ships and professionals across
the state, along with the
Employ Florida Marketplace,
located online at
www.employflorida.com/.
"Demographics of veterans
are shifting with the return of
young troops who have served
in the Global War On
Terrorism," Florida
Department of Veterans'
Affairs Executive Director
LeRoy Collins Jr. said. "FDVA
is working with AWI to assist
veterans looking for employ-
ment to include lifetime veter-
ans' preference for those seek-
ing jobs with municipal, coun-
ty and state government."
Veterans. offer Florida's
businesses the benefits of high
skills, education, leadership,
maturity and dedication
learned during their service.

Memories of an American schoolboy during World War II


* Part one of two.


GTON Watching Ken Burn's epic called
r "The War," a lot of old memories broke
loose and motivated me to write my
E own recollections of life during that
war, my memories of growing up as a
schoolboy during those years as my per-
sonal chronicle.
I remember Dec. 7, 1941, with some
clarity. I was 11 years old and visiting
with my friend, whose family lived in
the apartment immediately beneath
mine, No.,4A, 1805 University Ave., the
Bronx. We were sitting on the floor of
-. the living room, which was covered
with linoleum, playing with a new toy
he had received a detailed model of a
40 millimeter gun, made by the English
company, Dinky. It was highly detailed
and had little controls that could elevate
and train the gun as well as adjustable
feet, which steadied it. His cousin, a
* sailor from an English submarine that
was in port, had brought it. Actually he
turned out to be a deserter and they

were hiding him.
When the news of Japanese attacking
Pearl Harbor came over the radio, no
one had a clue as to where Pearl Harbor
was, but we all knew it was serious
business. I went upstairs to inform my
father of the attack. He was looking out
of the window as I entered and as I gave
him the news he turned, tears in his eyes
and said, "I know." I learned later that
he knew quite a lot about Pearl Harbor,
having spent eight years of his young
life as an American sailor, largely in the
battleship fleet that was then under
attack.
His emotional reaction to the news
brought on what was called a mini
stroke, but within a month he had taken
leave from his job as a New York
policeman and re-enlisted in the Navy.

Time to talk about some
strange news stories that
have come to my attention
recently. These stories prove
beyond a douft that no mat-
ter how odd your life might
,- seem to you, it is a lot more
bizarre somewhere else.
Take, for example,
Arkansas, which already
counts as strange because its
spelling bears little relation
to how it is pronounced. I
hated trying to spell the word
in grade school; I figured
anyone would know it had to
be spelled "Arkansaw"
because that's how we said
it.
But the way the state
spells its name is not why
S it's in this column (though I
admit it's a good one). The
thing I want to talk about is a
new law that the state legis-
lature passed recently. A law
that gives a whole new
meaning to the phrase, "unin-
tended consequences."
See, the legislature wanted
to set the age of 18 as the
minimum age a person could
be in order to get married.
They wanted to make one
exception: if a child was
under 18 and pregnant, they
could get married with
parental consent.
So far, all sounds good,'
right? Except somehow, a
word got stuck into the final
draft of the bill. A small,
three letter word. The word
was "not."
Where did this innocuous
word wind up? Right before


Laura's
Look
Laura Ware

the word "pregnant."
Amazingly, no one caught
the word before the bill was
passed. What this means is it
is now legal for any child in
Arkansas to get married as
long as mommy and daddy
approve. Well, unless they're
pregnant.
The Arkansas Code
Revision Commission took
the word "not" out of the
legislation when.it printed up
new code books. At least one
judge has said they shouldn't
have done that and the law
should be enforced as passed.
Needless to say, this has
caused all kinds of confusion
with county clerks in the
state. They would like to see
the state legislature go back
and get the thing right.
However, one of the co-
sponsors of the legislation,
State Representative Will
Bond, has said he doesn't
think the current situation "is
a crisis" and is perfectly con-
tent to wait to address the
statute in I am not kidding
- 2009.
In other words, this state
representative has basically
told the county clerks of
Arkansas that the mess the
state legislature created is
not his problem. They can all
sort it out while the state
people do whatever they
think is more important than


At first he had been rejected as being
too old. He had added three years to his
age when enlisting in 1918, but after
clarifying the record, he was accepted. I
realized later that he regarded the
Japanese attack as personal, an attack on
his Navy, his old neighborhood, the
fleet where he served from his 15th
birthday for the succeeding eight years.
I was in grammar school at the time.
Although there was extensive news
released about Pearl Harbor, much of it
was kept secret but the newspaper sto-
ries were extensive..Admiral Kimmel
and General Short, the U.S. command-
ers at Pearl, were hung out to dry as
scapegoats and I wrote a stinging
polemic, enthusiastically vilifying these
two men as the popular press was then
doing. My teacher entered it in an essay
contest conducted by a city-wide school
paper, the National Scholastic, and to
my amazement it received honorable
mention. My first journalistic effort.

Misinformation Part II

e


fixing something they broke.
Arkansas has a number of
silly laws. Two others I'll
mention that are probably not
nearly as well known as this
one at least not as attention
grabbing.
The first one is restricted
to Fayetteville, Ark. It states
simply that it is illegal to kill
any living creature in the
city. I don't know how they
define "living,"' but if the
people who wrote this are
related to the people in the
Arkansas state legislature
I'm betting they weren't very
specific,.
That means if you see a
cockroach in your house in
Fayetteville and you kill it
like any normal person
would do, you have broken
the law. Of course, normal
seems to be an odd concept
to Arkansas elected officials.
Finally, in researching this
column I learned that it is
against the law to mispro-
nounce the name of the state
while in Arkansas.
I'm tempted to go to
Arkansas and stand in front
of the state Capitol building
and pronounce the state's
name the way it's spelled
quite loudly. But what if they
arrested me? My life is
strange enough without
spending time in an Arkansas
jail.

Editor:.
A few weeks ago, I wrote
about my opinion that a lot
of misinformation is inten-
tionally given out in politics
and/or by bureaucrats.
Most e-mail I received
agreed with me. One respon-
dent questioned why the!
politicians would do that
when they want projects to'
be on time and within budg-
et.
I have a very long list of
very proven reasons why
they do. In a short summary,
I believe the combined rea-
son i's arrogance.
They have a very over-
whelming paradigm that they
possess unquestioned entitle-
ment. They use that to satis-
fy their desire tp accomplish
many of their personal agen-
das, and to get projects start-
ed.
The media is full of exam-
ples every day. The latest is
Federal Emergency
Management Agency when
they programmed a press
release and had their own
people pose as newsmen who
followed their scrip.
But now I see the local
politicians, who just a very
few weeks ago, bemoaned
the fact that the proposed
property tax reduction would
put the local government in a.
dire financial position.
They mentioned laying off
many public service person-
nel, including EMT's and
others, which would result in
reduced response time to
public service needs.
Now I read where we have
lots of extra money to now
hire four new high level
executives to assist the new
county administrator, now
referred to as the 'CEO'.
Apparently, they are debating
whether to hire them now, or
after the new CEO is hired,
when that person could hire
"his own people."
I have no doubt the major-
ity of the Highlands County
Board of County
Commission will decide to
hire them now, so they can
reward their good ole bud-
dies.
Where did this idea come
from and where is the money
coming from? I failed to see
anything about this in'one of
our local newspapers.
Mr. (Don) Bates will be at
the Sun 'N Lakes Estates of
Lake Placid November meet-
ing, maybe he can answer
that question.
Meanwhile, politics as
usual, and I say again, there
is not one io.ta of difference
between a Democrat or
Republican.
The only difference is
which way the money flows
to special interest groups and
who gets the most perks.
I really enjoy the e-mail I
get with opinions, gives me
an idea just how many really
read the editorials.

weclagg@strato.net.

"Continued from 14A
Dad was assigned to a
shore patrol unit in New
York City, in effect still a
policeman, but in a different
uniform. During his assign-
ment to the Shore Patrol,
Dad lived on a ship moored
at Pier 92 on the Hudson
River. He was able to sleep
at home one night in three.
After much effort Dad
managed to reacquire his old
rating as a radioman and
after much complaining and
lobbying he was reassigned:
first to a Navy Air base in
Virginia and then overseas to
Europe.
Ship movements were very
secret due to German subma-
rine activity but Dad wanted
to be able to inform us as to
where he landed so he
devised a code, based on giv-
ing my mother a false middle
initial in the letter he would
send after he arrived. There
was a different letter for
England, Africa, Iceland,
Bermuda and Scotland.
Each kept a copy of the
code and when our first "V"
mail letter arrived, we knew
Dad had landed in Scotland.
Thereafter correspondence
was frequent, his APO code
was something called
"Comlancrabeau," which
translated to commander
landing craft Europe, quite a
mouthful. Ultimately he was
posted to a facility in
Falmouth, England, in train-


ing for the invasion.
As school kids we were all
war buffs and studied every-
thing we could about the mil-
itary. Immensely proud of my
father, I quickly learned
everything there was to know
about Navy ranks and rat-
ings, design and capacity of
various classes of warships,
all manner of aircraft, and
had extensive aircraft silhou-
ette charts and was able to
identify any aircraft. Ours oi
theirs, almost at once.
I acquired the popular
prejudices of the day, hated
Japs and Nazis, worshiped
our servicemen and could
instantly identify all of the
service ribbons and unit
patches worn by our troops.
I remember we had an
English boy in our sixth
grade class who had been
evacuated from London early
in the war.,
His name was Ivan; he had
a good singing voice and
when one of our class plays
involved a soldier visiting
Arlington Cemetery, his ren-
dition of "My Buddy" even
brought me to tears.
Then, as now, I cry easily,
not from softness, rather as a
display of emotionality,
which I make no effort to
hide. My emotions are
always near the surface.

FROSTPROOF The holidays are
right around the corner, and the
Frostproof Care Center is gearing up for
another busy season. About 200 families
will receive holiday boxes for
Thanksgiving and Christmas. This is not
possible without strong community sup-
port.
The Care Center currently needs dona-
tions of: non-perishable foods for holi-
day food boxes, personal care items such
as deodorant, shampoo, soap, etc.
Sample sizes are welcome. Only things
that have not been opened can be used.
The Care Center's most important
asset is volunteers.No donation of time is


too small.Volunteering at the Care Center
is a great way to meet people and make
new friends. Helping hands are important
to carry out the center's mission, espe-
cially during the holidays.There are gifts
to be wrapped, food boxes to be filled
and gifts and food to be delivered.
Gifts for children of all ages are need-
ed.The Care Center strives to give chil-
dren one special gift they have requested
and two smaller gifts.Gifts should be
wrapped, if possible, and marked on a
tag on the outside if it is for a boy or girl,
what the gift is and the child's age for
which it is suitable.
Another way to partner with the Care


Center this season 'is to adopt a child or
family.Sunday school classes often do
this as a help to the Care Center.
Shopping for a particular child or family
can increase the joy for the shopper and
the child or family adopted. The Care
Center will supply the name of a child or
family in need. Also community mem-
bers who know of a family or a child that
could benefit from these services; call
the Care Center, 635-5555, or come by
South Scenic Highway, Door 17.
The Christmas season is a time of giv-
ing and sharing the joy found in the
Christian faith. Contact Center
Director Ralph Waters, (863) 635-5555.

News-Sun photos by SCOTT DRESSEL
Four-year-olds from the First Baptist Church of Sebring preschool took a trip
to the 'ocean' (also known as Lake Jackson) Friday morning. They enjoyed the
pleasant weather outside, studied a caterpillar they found and ate oatmeal
cookies on their beach towels after playing in the sand. The trip wrapped up
the students' week of studying things that begin with the letter 'O.'

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop


The holiday shopping countdown



Earty start or last minute -



rtailers re ready for all shopp


Getting wires

crossed

We finally found just
the right fixture for our
decor to replace the fan in
our dining room.
I stood on the step stool
to help support the fixture
on the ladder tray as Ken
worked above his head to
connect the wires. But by
the time we figured out
the right length of chain
and various other things,
the fixture had gone up
and down a few times.
Finally, Ken flipped the
circuit breaker. Seeing the
lights come on was grati-
fying. He secured the fix-
ture to the ceiling and
added the other bulbs and
globes for the finished
product.
We admired the fixture
all lit up and then hit the
wall switch to turn it off.
But, it stayed lit.
Ken called a friend who
had books that could
guide him. It was simply
a matter of the original
fixture having had the fan
wire connected directly to
the source of electricity.
Ken just needed to switch
the wires.
Simple, yes. But, frus-
trating. Now he had to
pull the fixture down -
again. To his credit, Ken
handled the frustration
with patience and persist-
ence.
He removed the bulbs
and globes and we both
took our positions on the
step stool and ladder. At
last, the lights not only
came on, but went off by,
a touch to the dimmer
switch.
He secured the fixture
and we collapsed on the
sofa to relax.
How like our lives this
experience can be. We
think we have our wires
connected to our Source
of power correctly. After
all, we go to church, sing
in the Choir and maybe
even teach a Sunday
school class. We try to be
there for everyone who
has a need.
But when we're always
'turned on' and burning
hot without any power in
the off switch; we burn
out and those closest to us
are neglected. Our wires
are crossed.
The Bible clearly states
that we are to care for our
families first when it says
in 1 Timothy 5:8, "But if
anyone does not provide
for his own, and especial-
ly for those of his house-
'hold, he has denied the
faith and is worse than an
unbeliever."
Provision is not only
material. It is also being
there, listening and nur-
turing our loved ones.
Service to others is good;
but not at the expense of
our families.
Let's be sure our wires
are rightly connected to.
God and his purpose for
our lives. Then we will
know not only how to
shine brightly; but, when
to dim the light for rest
and the care of those
whom God has entrusted
to us within our homes.
Selah

Diverasons


Dazzled and awed


Some of my fondest mem-
ories of parenting are of
watching the world through
the eyes of my children.
Snow fell ferociously out-
side. Even the street lights
were shadowed by the storm.
Then suddenly, many bright
lights illuminated the dark-
ness. Sparkling reflections
from the snow responded like
jewels once hidden and now
revealed.
A night crew had come to
remove the snow. Like my
son's miniature construction
crew which he would set
up in imaginary situations in
our living room they came
to life.
I couldn't keep this to
myself. So I awoke my
young son and had him come
to the big picture window
where we watched the scene
unfold two stories down and
half a block up our hill.
But, actually, my greatest
enjoyment was in watching
his expressions.
It doesn't take much to
dazzle children. They
respond with amazement
over a tiny ant crawling on
the ground; or a lizard escap-
ing every attempt to be
caught. Well, actually, it does
take much to dazzle children
because the Bible tells us the
ant is a creature we'd do well
to learn from.
"Go to the ant, you slug-


gard," says Proverbs 6:6,
NKJV. "Consider her ways
and be wise, which, having
no captain, overseer or ruler,
provides her supplies in the
summer, and gathers her food
in the harvest."
Children have in them the
heart to be dazzled and awed.
This uniquely human trait
prepares us to worship our
Creator God and Savior.
That's why a little ant is
"much" in the way of "daz-
zle" because God is the
designer.
When we can point to an
ant carrying food; a lizard
defying capture or more
majestic sights like the ocean
crashing on shore or the
mountains silently exuding
strength we have an oppor-
tunity to introduce our chil-
dren to the One who has put
the capacity of dazzling awe
within them.,Not for the pur-
pose of appreciating the cre-
ation only; but, for the pur- -
pose of directing their
thoughts to God who is more
majestic and beyond imagi-
nation than any of his cre- .
nations.
We were children once.
We, too, were delighted by
blowing on dandelion dust
and watching it take flight.
We were overwhelmed by
seeing the creatures in the
zoo or watching birds come
to our backyard feeders. But,


somewhere along the way we
may have let the wonder die
- losing sight of the Creator
behind the creature.
As parents, we can show
our children that the creation
aches with the telling of its
wonderful Creator. We can
help them discover him so
that they can be dazzled by
his love, power, strength and
creative power. And, most
importantly, we can guide
them to choosing to have a
relationship and know the
One who created them and
who is beyond description.
If we don't teach our chil-
dren to be dazzled by God,
they will find another object
of worship because worship
is'inherent in our beings.
Let's help our children learn
to meditate on the glorious
splendor of God's majesty
and on his wondrous works
as we read about in Psalm
145 ... developing thankful
hearts.
But, first, let's wake up to
the brilliance ourselves so we
can revel in the reflection in
our children's eyes.

Parenting by Heart is a monthly
column written byJan Merop, of
Sebring, to be featured in the

Bradley Cooley Jr., Guy LaBree, Theodore
Morris, and Dean Quigley. Each artist has
worked extensively with many of Florida's

well as archeologists and anthropologists to
accurately portray Native American life, cul-
ture, dress, and spiritual symbols in their
paintings and sculpture. Much of their work
can be seen in public parks, government

The soil we see under our feet is much more than just dirt


Most people
may think of soil
as "dirt" and may
not put much
S stock in its
importance.
S' However, soil is
one of the most
fundamental and
News basic of our
From The resources -
Watershed every bit as
important as
Corine Burgess water and air. If
we do not have
healthy soil, products that we use
on a daily basis would not be avail-
able and without healthy soil the
landscape would be barren.
Soil is filled with life. Entire
communities, some which are very
complex, are right under our feet.
Think of any plant or animal,
including humans, and realize that
they all depend on soil. Each scoop
of soil holds more living things than
you can imagine. So, let's take a
look at this hidden world that we
take for granted.
The Natural Resource
Conservation Service has done


many studies on soils all over the
nation. Soil surveys have been con-
ducted in almost every county in
the United States. These studies
describe soils and how they would
best be utilized. Information such as
soil limitations, chemical make-up,
location and associations with natu-
ral habitats and vegetation are
included in these studies.
Originally, soil surveys were
developed to assist agricultural pro-
ducers. Today the usefulness of
these studies goes far beyond their
original intent. Soil surveys benefit
homeowners, those in the recre-
ational field, engineers, goll-
course managers and
lawn maintenance compa- .'
nies, just to name a few.
So, you can see the '
importance of these sur-
veys, not only for the
agricultural producers, but
for anyone who has plans to do
something with their land.
There are at least 39 different
types of soils in Highlands County.
Knowing the type of soil is impor-
tant for many reasons. For example,
some soils are suitable for growing


specific crops, while others may be The surface layer has the majori-

somewhat modified by weathering
but is relatively unchanged by the
soil-forming process.
Each state has its own "state
soil." These soil types share the
same level of distinction as official
1 state flowers and birds. Florida has


the largest total acreage of wet,
sandy soils with an organic-stained
subsoil layer on flat wood land-
forms in the nation. Myakka, an
Indian word for Big Waters, is a
native soil of Florida and does nr)t
occur in any other state. It occurs
on more than 1 million acres in
Florida and is the most extensive
soil in the state.
liopefully now you understand
how important soil is; it's not just
dirt that you walk on. Remember,
most of the products you use, the
animals you see and the food you
eat depend on healthy soil.

Pirates Attack













..




News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Avast me hearties, and shiver me timbers. There were pirates about Sebring's Historic
Circle on Oct. 26. While they wielded knives and a cutlass or two, turned out the buc-
caneers were basically harmless although they do hope to lead local actors astray.
Come join in on the exciting Highlands Little Theater musical production of 'Pirates of
Penzance,' Gilbert and Sullivan's marvelous and melodic musical comedy. Lovely
maidens are needed, stalwart policemen, and notorious pirates. Auditions begin on
Dec. 10. Here the show's producer, Melanie Boulay (left) takes a close look at how
Meri Littlefield escapes a surprise attack. The show will open on March 28, 2008. No
parts have yet been cast.'For more information call the theater at 385-2175.

Attitude is everything, so don't let yours

stink and ruin everybody else's day


When your attitude stinks, it offends every-
one. The truth is no one is born with an
offensive attitude. It is a developed behavior
chosen by an individual to intimidate, hurt
and offend others.
For many whose attitude stinks, the behav-
ior was never corrected by proper parenting
skills, and was ignored and allowed to fester
like a poorly treated wound.
Others developed stinking attitude within
the environment of which they are familiar
and are influenced by parents, siblings, peers,
media, or celebrity they call role models.
Poor behavior can be corrected with an
attitude adjustment. The individual has to
choose to let go of the stinking attitude, by
practicing simple exercises. When tempted to
"cuss out" someone who you thought had
overstepped their bounds, count to 10.
When some one speaks to you inappropri-
ately, with a calm voice say, "I did not give
you permission to speak to me that way."
When.an unknown motorist disrupts your
driving, keep your middle finger to yourself.
Don't give them the birdie (middle finger),
keep your hands on the steering and take
deep breaths.
In today's society, you have to be constant-
ly battling and adjusting your attitude


Servin
Uip



.faeu .10 Yag

because you are going to be faced with aggra-
.vation, and hostility daily.
A stinking attitude if left unchecked, it
could cost you your job, marriage, promotion,
scholarship, honor, integrity, friends and fam-
ily.

VA approves '13-Fold' flag ceremony

Family may request meaning of folds be spoken


Special to the News-Sun
To ensure burial services at
the 125 national cemeteries
operated by the Department of
Veterans Affairs reflect the
wishes of veterans and their
families, VA officials have
clarified the Department's
policy about recitations made
while the U.S. flag is folded
at the gravesite of a veteran.
The Department of Veteran
Affairs released a statement
from Under Secretary William
F. Tuerk on Oct. 30.
"Honoring the burial wishes
of veterans is one of the high-
est commitments for the men
and women of VA," said
Tuerk, VA's under secretary


for Memorial Affairs.
"A family may request the
recitation of words to accom-
pany the meaningful presenta-
tion of the American flag as
we honor the dedication and
sacrifice of their loved ones."
Traditional gravesite mili-
tary funeral honors include
the silent folding and presen-
tation of an American flag, a
21-gun rifle salute, and the
playing of "Taps."
The clarification includes
the following:
Volunteer .honor guards
are authorized to read the so-
called "13-fold" flag recita-
tion or any comparable script;


Survivors of the deceased
need to provide material and
request it be read by the vol-
unteer honor guards; and
Volunteer honor guards
will accept requests for recita-
tions that reflect any or no
religious traditions, on an
equal basis.
Veterans with a discharge
other than dishonorable, their
spouses and eligible depend-
ent children can be buried in a
national cemetery. Other bur-
ial benefits available for all
eligible veterans, regardless
of whether they are buried in
a national cemetery or a pri-
vate cemetery, include a bur-
ial flag, a Presidential


Folding the flag has long been an important part of military funerals.


Memorial Certificate and a
government headstone or
marker.
The reading of the "13-


Fold" is not mandatory, but
the Honor Guard are author-
ized or given permission to
read it. Family members may


elect to have a meaningful
song of their selection sung
during the folding, or some
other poem read.


Costume Party at Legion Post 69

The Avon Park American Legion Post 69 provided a k.rge crowd a howling good
Halloween. Karoake, good food, games, costumes and prizes made the event a lot of
fun. The Ladies Auxiliary Unit 69, under direction of President Nancy Galida and
Children and Youth Chairman Darlene Watkin, brought out the child in everyone as
they played Pass the Pumpkin and Mummy Wrap. Costume contest winners were
Beverly LeBeck, first place; Bill Galida, second; Darlene Watkin, third; and Ron Rahl,
fourth. Shown here in costumes are (kneeling from left) Darlene Watkin and Annie

Women Veteran's Health Committee

holds quarterly meeting in St. Pete


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING On Oct. 24,
Denise Williams, assistant
Veteran Service Officer for
Highlands County, attended a
quarterly meeting for Women
Veterans in St. Petersburg.
This committee consists of
a Women's Program manager
for' Bay Pines Veterans
Administration Medical
Center, psychiatrist, pharma-
cist, patient advocate, mili-
tary sexual trauma counselors
from St. Petersbtulg Veterans
Center, and cytotechnologist
pathology and laboratory
medicine, along with other
committee members that are
committed to better the
healthcare for women veter-
ans.
The committee discussed
the issues pertaining to the
female veterans and female
military personnel.
-Today, 15 percent of the
military personnel from all
branches of service are
women compared to only 1.4
percent in the 1970. That
number is expected to
increase. Therefore,
Department of Veteran Affairs
Healthcare is constantly
addressing new and better
ways to meet the needs of all
women veterans. There are
greater challenges of the
women in the military today,
with more physical, emotion-
al and mental issues arising.
Sometimes mothers are going
into combat or maybe they are
being asked to fill the job of
another soldier serving.
Bay Pines VA Medical
Center is trying to meet the
needs of all women veterans.


The women's clinic now has a
gynecologist, who is assigned
to the women's clinic six out
of 10 working days. The doc-
tor will be assisted by a resi-
dent working in the women's
clinic. :
This additional medical


personnel is going to reduce
time for specialty care
appointment for women vet-
erans.
If you have any questions
regarding the services at the
VA, call Williams at 402-
6623.


With all of our

sophisticated healing

methods, this is still

one of the most effective.


We have all of the latest techniques and technologies including
hyperbaric oxygen chambers, yet the thing people seem to remember
most is our genuine caring attitude. If your wound has been defying
everything you've tried, call us or ask your doctor for a referral.
You'll see what technology combined with old-fashioned care can do.

Sebring spoils Avon Park playoff hopes,




Wildcats slip into post-season

Red Devils held tie-breaker with Hardee, but with both losing Friday, Wildcats take second in district


News-Sun photo by ED BALDRIDGE
TJ. Williams, #23, looks for an opening in the midst of a host of Red Devil defenders in
Sebring's 36-14 win Friday night over Avon Park.


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING With Hardee's
loss at DeSoto,Avon Park had
a chance to take second in
district Friday night, but it
wasn't to be as the Sebring
Blue Streaks played
spoilers in topping the Seb
Red Devils, 36-14, at
Firemen's Field.
"It's a rivalry for
sure," said Sebring Av
Head Coach Jarred
Hamlin. "The kids had 1
a good week, they
stayed focus, and we fin-
ished. That's what is impor-
tant."
The first quarter was all
about the long drives.
Sebring was able to score
on their first possession off a
Steven Fortner pass to Kyle
Long for nine yards, jumping
out 8-0 after the successful
two-point conversion.


"We won in the trenches,
and that's where games are
won or lost," Hamlin added.
"You can't win a game with--
out winning in the trenches."
The second quarter was a
grind with both teams strug-
gling with penalties
ring until the last four min-
utes of the half.
Sebring was able to
Park slip past the Devils on
a seven-yard spurt by
S T.J. Williams, and the
PAT was good making
the score 15-0 Blue
Streaks.
But that's where the slide
really began for Avon Park.
"We had nothing to lose
coming into this game
tonight," said Williams who
was struggling with ankle
injuries. "But we still had to
focus on beating Avon Park."
Just a few minutes later,


after starting on their own 20-
yard line, Avon Park fell vic-
tim to two false starts and a
confusing flip-back-attempt-
ed pass that set the Big Red
offense back on their own
five-yard line.
The next Red Devil rush
was stuffed, and Sebring
came out of the pile with a
safety.
The score was then 17-0
Sebring, and Avon Park had to
kick off to the Streaks against
the wind and from their own
10-yard line.
The results of that kick-off
left Williams and the 'blue-
man-group' within scoring
distance.
With just 45 seconds in the
half, Williams was able to
propel himself from a huge o-
line surge for 30-yards and
the TD.

DeSoto takes district title



with win over Wildcats


By GRAYLIN SMITH-' -
.. N o,-Suji co, ret.pondeni
The DeSoto Bulldogs
snapped an eight game los-
ing streak to archrival
Hardee in the 87th meeting
of one of the state's oldest
rivalries. DeSoto remained
unbeaten at 8-0, with the 17-
0 win and captured the
District 12-3A champi-
onship.
Hardee fell to 6-3 on the
year, but thanks to Sebring's
win over Avon Park in dis-
trict play, secured a playoff
spot as district runner-up.

The drama didn't last long
Friday night, as Lake Placid
traveled to St. Petersburg in
search of its' first district
victory of the season,
But it wasn't meant to be
as the Barons scored two
first-quarter touchdowns and
built too-big a lead for the
Dragons to overcome in the
38-6 St. Pete Catholic win.

TIM PRICE
Hardee head coach

who accounted for 37 yards
for the Bulldogs.
Shine was all smiles after
the game.
"It's been a long time
since we beat Hardee, and to
come in here and win at their
place, I'm speechless," he
said.
Shine managed the potent
Bulldog running attack that
used a total of nine different
running backs.
"That (DeSoto) is one very
good team we played
tonight," comment Hardee
coach Tim Price after the
game. "I'm very proud of the
way our defense played
tonight, but your not going to
stop them completely."


Haven, Lake Placid has had a
tough go of things, battling
injuries and a both
young and inexperi- St. Pe

hard to progress as a
team. L
Those tough times
continued, however,

ter on offense. This is only
Esayi's second real game and
he did better this week than
last, but we still have a long
way to go," continued Price.
"We sure do miss Jimmy
(Cimeus), but that happens.".
Hardee won the coin toss
and elected to defer to the
second half.
With DeSoto receiving the
opening kickoff at their own
30-yard line, it took the
Bulldogs just eight plays to
score.
The powerful Bulldog run-
ning game managed four
first downs on the 70-yard
drive, capped off by Shine's
1-yard touchdown with 9:13
to go in the first quarter.
The DeSoto defense held
Hardee on its first posses-
sion, but a strange double
fumble gave the Wildcats a
first down.
Hardee had fumbled the
ball on third down and
DeSoto recovered, but as the
Bulldog player tried to run it
back, he fumbled it back to
Hardee.

The Hardee players gather to get themselves up for the
game Friday night against visiting DeSoto. The Bulldogs
took district honors with a 12-0 win over the Wildcats, but
with Avon Park's loss at Sebring, Hardee has qualified for
the playoffs.


Wildcat offense stalled.
The fourth-down punt by
Hardee pinned the Bulldogs
back to their own five-yard
line and the Wildcat defense
held the Bulldogs to three
plays and out, receiving the
Bulldog punt at DeSoto's 32-
yard line.
With great field position,
Hardee had their first big
scoring opportunity, but a
delay of game penalty set up
a third and long situation.
Youyoute's pass on the third
down was intercepted,
killing the drive.
With the Bulldogs starting


at their own 11-yard line,
running back Marcus Shaw
gained 20 yards on a first-
down run to give his team
some breathing room.
But the Bulldogs failed to
get a first down afterwards
and both defenses stiffened
to keep the scoreboard still.
With 1:12 before halftime,
a bad snap went over the
head of Wildcat punter Jose
Castaneda.
Castaneda wisely kicked

zone before a DeSoto

field goal for a 24-0 Baron
lead.
The lead was extended
early in the third when
Butler broke another long
one, flashing through the
Green 'D' for 60 yards for a
31-0 lead.
Lake Placid did get the
ground-game going, churn-
ing out a drive that got them
on the board when Rashaad
Brown bulled in from four
yards out.


But that would be the
extent of the comeback as St.
Pete Catholic quarterback
Kevin Tapp connected with
receiver Darin Hess on a 27-
yard strike in the fourth peri-
od to provide for the final
margin.
The Green Dragons close
out the season Friday, Nov.
9, at Lemon Bay, in
Englewood, with the hopes
of one more in the win col-
umn.

roll of 21-out-of-22, the

Fishing After Cold Fronts m
-. Is.am& M&


By SCOTT SUGGS
Special to the News-SSun
First, let me say that as an
angler I understand that bass
fishing after a cold front can
be very frustrating.
Especially if you fish in
areas with Florida-strain
largemouth bass, cold fronts
can pretty much be the
excuse
you need to park the boat
and head to a deer stand 6r
sit in the house and watch
football.
But cold fronts are just a
fact of life for most of the
country from about October
through April.
That's a long period-of
time to simply give up on
bass fishing. Those fish have
to eat at some point during
this six-month
stretch; fish are going to
be caught by someone some-
where.
I figure that might as well
be me.
So learning to deal with
the effects of cold fronts as it
relates to bass fishing is the
first step towards keeping my
'days on the
water successful when
everyone else has packed it
in for the year, leaving you
on the water with cold air
temperatures and bluebird
skies.
As the air temperature
cools from a cold front, the.
surface temperature of the
water will also Iegin to cool.
This will force bass in shal-
low water to seek holding
areas in deeper water where


the temperature will be
warmer.
I use my electronics to find
brush piles in deep water or
deep-water ledges near chan-
nel swings or secondary
points.
Once I find them I do like
to use a jig or a.drop shot,
something with a vertical
presentation. A _-ounce
football jig tipped with a
Berkley PowerBait Chigger
Craw and dragged slowly
through these areas can be
very effective.
Drop-shotting a Berkley
Gulp! Sinking Minnow can
be effective, too.
Just shake the rod tip, try-
ing not to move the bait too
far.
Sometimes smaller baits
can be they key, too.
If you normally catch fish
on a 10-inch Berkley
PowerBait Power Worm, try
a 6-inch worm; same goes for
stick- and creature-style
baits.
Being cold blooded the
body temperature of a bass is
regulated by its environment.
When the water cools, they
become lethargic and their
metabolism slows.
Big meals aren't needed,
but an easy meal one that
won't require much work to
capture or consume is
always'welcome.
Don't overlook tight cover,
either bushes, root balls,
dock pilings, logs and rock
can sometimes draw in large
numbers of bass.

They will huddle in these
protected areas where the
water temps are move stable.
Trying pitching jigs or
wacky rigged soft plastics
like a PowerBait Fat Dover
Crawler in these areas and let
them sink. It might take some
time, but you can catch these
fish.
More than anything, fish-
ing after a cold front requires
anglers to slow down. The
bass are going to be moving
and reacting slowly, so your
presentation should not be
fast.
Bait like Gulp! are ideal
for slow presentations
because the scent and flavor
that are built into the baits
works even better when
fished slowly.
The scent clouds will fill
the area and actually draw in
fish even lethargic ones in
search of an easy meal.
Fishing after cold fronts
isn't ideal, but don't let low
air temperatures keep you off.
the water.
This time of the year can
yield some very big fish that
have been gorging on the
shad that spawn in the backs
of coves.
Plus, there won't be much
boat traffic. Just change your
tactics a little and go catch
some big bass while every-
one else is sitting around the
house.

Champion and the first angler in
professional bass fishing to win $1
million in a single tournament.

GAME
Continued from 1D
would think that there's a good
chance the Indianapolis Colts-
New England Patriots matchup
this afternoon will turn out to be
one that has you heading to
nap-ville by halftime.
On the other hand, given the
recent history of both these
teams, the star quality that each
team has, as well as the fact that
they are both undefeated and
have been lambasting the rest of
the league week after week it


almost seems Jike this game
doesn't need any extra hyping.
If ESPN hadn't been repeat-
edly making me aware of the
potential for this matchup for
about three weeks now, I'd still
be really anxious to watch this
game.
The plot lines for this add to
it as well.
STom Brady is facing Peyton
Manning, the man who's record
for touchdowns in a season, set
just last year, he is on pace to
shatter.
The Pats have been decimat-
ing their opponents, but have
faced a weaker, home-laden


schedule thus far.
The Colts, the reigning Super
Bowl champions, have been
playing better teams, on. the
road, and while not quite as
'dominantly as the Pats, are win-
ning rather handily.
The two Goliath's of the
NFL, the top two quarterbacks
in the league.
The defending champs
against winners of three of the
last six Super Bowls.
It has all the earmarks of a
monumentally exciting battle.
But I'll have a few selected
DVD titles close at hand.

STREAKS
Continued from ID
"I've got to take this offen-
sive line to I-Hop, they did a
great job tonight," Williams
said after the game.
The point-after was good,
and that brought the score to
24-0 Sebring.
After the half, neither team
could seem to get the wind
and good field position at the
same time.
The third quarter was
mostly about avoiding penal-
ties for both teams, and the
end zone stayed out of reach.
Early in the fourth quarter,
a pass from sophomore Albert
Moses to receiver Shevis
Hicks put theball in the zone
for Avon Park.
A quick pass from Moses
put two more points on the
board to narrow the gap to
24-8 Sebring.
The Blue Streaks' Williams
answered the Devils by
breaking one for 42-yards on
the next series, but the point
after attempt was intercepted
by Avon. Park leaving the
score 36-8.
The Streaks recovered their
own kick-off at the 35-yard
line for the next series from
an unsure Avon Park, but
turn-about is fair play and the
Devils intercepted a pass on
the next series which set-up
another touchdown.
This time Avon Park was
able to cross the line for six
more when Chaz Jones ran it
in from 3-yards, but failed to
convert the PAT leaving the
score at it's final 36-14.
"We just made too many
mistakes," said Avon Park's
senior defensive lineman
Fred Mixon after the -game.
"This is my last time playing
Sebring, and I gotta remem-
ber, a loss, but we've got to
keep moving forward."
Avon Park faces Palmetto
on the road next week, and
Sebring plays next week at
Port Charlotte to finish up the
season for both teams.

half with both defenses hold-
ing the other's offense in
check.
The third quarter went by
quickly as both teams
exchanged possessions.
DeSoto was pinned back at
their own six-yard line to start
their second possession of the
half.


DeSoto managed 12 plays
and .53 yards on the drive
before punting to the Hardee
12-yard line:
More importantly, it took a
considerable amount of time
off the clock.
With only about five min-
utes left in the game, Hardee
went back to work with hopes
