'As long as I live, I will never forget that day 21 years ago when I raised my hand and took
the oath of citizenship. Do you know how proud I was? I was so proud that I walked around
with an American flag around my shoulders all day long.'

Coming to America


Long road to citizenship nearing end for two county employees


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING
R amon Gavarrete can't
wait for the August
primary.
He's lived in the
United States since Aug. 21,
1983. He's been employed
by Highlands County since
May 1996 and became its
chief engineer in 1998.
He's never voted.
"I'm looking forward to
being able to vote in a gov-
ernmental electiorf for the
first time inq my life," the
43-year-old
said.
He was
born and'
raised in
Nicaragua.
He attended
Gavarrete American
Nicaraguan
-School in Managua, a pri-
'aiace s ,hool to which
Gavarrete's parents sacri-
ficed to send their five chil-
dren
His father, also an engi-
neer and partially responsi-
ble for constructing the
American Embassy in
Nicaragua, died at 59, hav-
ing never cast a vote.
Gavarrete's path to citi-
zenship has been a long,
arduous road.
"I knew from very early
in my childhood that I
would, at least, be coming to
America to study,"
Gavarrete said, explaining


Ne,%.-Sun phuiio b, KAT'ARA SIMMONS
Gloria Rybinsid, the public information assistant for Highlands County, should take her
naturalization oath Jan. 29 in Tampa. She was born in the DominicAn Republic.


continued instability led him
to believe, as a teenager,
that a move here was
inevitable.
Reality hit the fan on a
Friday morning. Gavarrete
was in school when his par-
ents received a telephone
call from administration.
Hundreds of households
received the same message
- the Sandinistas were
implementing conscription;
get your oldest children out
of Nicaragua..
"We couldn't say bye to


anybody," Gavarrete said.
"Nobody was supposed to
know."
Gavarrete and a sister
joined about 200 teenagers
from 15 to 18 years of age
flying to the United States.
Having arrived Aug. 21,
1983, Gavarrete applied for
political asylum. U.S. immi-
gration officials stamped, his
documents with "employ-
ment authorized indefinite-
ly."
Gloria Rybinski, public
information assistant for


Highlands County, returned
Tuesday-from Tampa, where
she was interviewed by an
immigrations officer.
Barring any surprises, she
expects to return to Tampa,
on Jan. 29 to take her natu-
ralization oath, making her
an official citizen.
Rybinski has had her
"green card" permanent
resident status for 10
years. She married her hus-
band Jason Rybinski seven
years ago. Together with
their children they live in


Frostproof.
They met while he was
studying medicine in the
Dominican Republic, her
homeland. She completed
law school there, she said,
explaining the requirements
are different in the Third
World country.
The daughter of a
Dominican state police gen-
eral, Rybinski had planned a
career in criminal law.
Doing so stateside would
have required a return to law
school.
Her priorities changed'
when she moved to Florida
to make a life with her hus-
band. She's been with the
county since March 2004,
when was hired as a tempo-
rary. She went full-time
Nov. 22 the same year.
"It's not like I married
him for this purpose,"
Rybinski said, explaining
naturalization is particularly
invasive when the applicant
is married to an American
citizen.
Like Gavarrete, she fol-
lowed legal channels to get
here.
Unlike him, she moved to
the United States because
this is where Jason Rybinski
would work after they mar-
ried. With a law degree she
couldn't use here, Rybinski
entered the workforce from
scratch. .

Retired


deputy

responds


to theft

allegations

By KEVIN J. SHUT
kevin .shutt@newssun .com
SEBRING Attorney W.
James Kelly said animosity
between his client and her
accuser went undetected dur-
ing a Highlands County
Sheriff's Office internal
investigation.
"Something is very
wrong," Kelly said of the
theft investigation of retired
Detective Sgt. Sharon
Glisson, which determined
she had stolen a $30 camp
lantern from a crime scene.
From legitimacy and juris-
diction of the internal investi-
gation to credibility of the
Avon Park police officer who
brought the charges, Kelly
criticized Sheriff Susan
Benton's conclusion and
asked her to amend the report
to show the allegations are
unfounded.
"Further, in the event you
make such findings, we
expect a letter of apology
from Maj. (Mark) Schrader,"
Kelly said in a namee clear-
ing" rebuttal dated Dec. 13,
which he said was delivered
to HCSO on Friday.
The rebuttal is a standard
operating procedure for pub-
lic employees, whose person-
nel files are public record.
Benton released the details
of the internal investigation
that centered around
Glisson's alleged Aug. 28
theft of a Ray-O-Vac lantern
from a marijuana grow house
bust.

Veterans watching

for flag violations
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
AVON PARK For Charlie Marr and his
Highlands County band of brothers, faded or tat-
tered flags waving to and fro elicit conflicting
emotions.
They're happy to see fellow citizens still have
enough in pride in country to fly the stars and
bars, but worn, frayed, faded or improperly dis-
played flags are disrespectful despite respectful
intentions, they say.
"Some of them are like streamers instead of
flags," said Earl Bosley, a Vietnam-era Air Force
veteran.
They call, themselves the Highlands Veterans
Flag Care Group, an informal watch dog initia-
tive to ensure county residents and businesses
display Old Glory in accordance with U.S. codes.

it from 'flown with pride' and relegating
it to 'disrespectful display.'

News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Travelers
and residents along State
Road 64 were treated to a
small air show Friday as an
Air Force C-130 Hercules
touched down at the Avon
Park Executive Airport.
. The landing was a planned
event, and the large plane,
piloted by Major Catherine
Newell, was there on official
business.
Newell declined an oppor-
tunity to comment on the
landing or the mission offi-
cially, stating Air Force regu-
lations against mission dis-

out clearance, but was please

as she prepares the C-130 Hercules she was piloting for

Water warning
issued after
missed test
'Drinking water
'perfectly fine,'
utilities director says
By MATT MURPHY
matt.nmurphy@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID The town
issued a drinking water warn-
ing last week after it missed a
deadline for a lead and copper
test.
And although that sounds
frightening at first, this particu-
lar test does not measure drink-
ing water itself. Instead, it
measures lead and copper lev-
els in the plumbing of house-
holds served by the town's
water system.
"It's the plumbing that's
being tested," Utilities Director
Gary Freeman said. "There's
nothing in the water at all."
Freeman took the blame for
missing the test deadline,
which resulted in a $2,000 fine
from the Department of
Environ-mental Protection,
which mandates the testing.
The samples are taken at the
houses of customers who are
selected at random from vari-
ous areas of the town. The resi-
dents are given a bottle of
water and instruction on how to
perform the test, and then the
test is picked up later.
The test is performed on a
three-year cycle, with the last
one occurring in 2004.
In Freeman's tenure as utili-
ties director, this particular lead
and copper test has never
exceeded the maximum levels,
nor has it even come close.
In fact, in the 2004 cycle of
testing (the last time testing
occurred), the lead level was
measured as undetectable. The
copper level was also signifi-
cantly below the maximum
level, as it also was during the
2001 testing cycle.
With toy recalls happening
on an almost daily basis, the
mere mention of lead is almost
enough to cause a panic. With
that in mind,.Freeman cautions
-- that there is nothing to worry
about when it comes to lead
levels in the town's waters.
"There have been no prob-
lems before," Freeman said.
"We're undetectable on lead."
And even though the dead-
line to submit the test results
was missed, Freeman said town
residents shouldn't worry about
their drinking water.
"Be assured your drinking
water is perfectly fine,"
Freeman said.

and losing control, Sutton struck a tree and, with passenger Mary L Sutton, 84,
was taken to Florida Hospital Lake Placid, where they were in serious condition.
Though a street address was provided in the FHP report, no city of residence was
listed. They were wearing seat belts.

What a difference three days makes


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.iuffley@newssion.com
WASH-
a I 1NGTON D.
< 1 C. Back
last sum-
mer, when I
first heard
of the
K nsiug h t
Center for
Specialized
Journalism, I had no idea of
what it was or what it did.
Now, thanks to it, I am
about .to tell you about an
amazing trip one that pro-
vided such an opportunity for
enrichment and a fuller under-
standing of the state of health
care in this country, that a
week after my return I am still
in amazement and still organ-
izing what I've learned.
The Knight Center was
founded in 1988 by the
Knight Foundation, using the
bulk of John S. Knight's
estate after his death in 1981.
Knight and his brother James
L. Knight created what is now
the Knight-Ridder Company,
the largest newspaper pub-
lisher in the country.
At the heart of the center's
work are six in-depth, all-
expenses-paid seminars
organized every year.
Typically these three day
events provide comprehensive
briefings by an array of
experts on timely topics. They
are open to working reporters
and editorial writers who
must write a competitive
essay in order to be selected.
The seminar I attended,
"Paying for Health Care" was
held Dec. 5-7 (Wednesday
through Friday) mostly at the
University of Maryland
University Center outside of
Washington but partly in
the capital itself.

Getting there
I flew out of a balmy Fort
Lauderdale shortly before
breakfast.
Turns out, flying isn't quite
how I remembered it, from
when I was young and flew
first class. But I squeezed into
my economy seat, opened my
complimentary bag of five
miniature pretzels, and was
grateful I landed safely and on
time.
I had to change planes on
the trip north, so did do my
share of .running down corri-
dors between flights get-
ting sweaty and out of breath,
my shirt tail pulled out of my
waistband, my camera swing-
ing off one shoulder, my
briefcase wildly bumping off
my hip but I made every
connection, and had time to
watch it try to snow in
Philadelphia before I arrived
at .Reagan National Airport
just at lunchtime.
It was wonderfully white in
D.C. and its environs, an inch
of snow having turned ordi-
nary trees into filigreed works
of art.
But the weather was raw.
It turned out not to matter.
On arrival at the University of
Maryland University Center

The capital building two weeks before the start of winter. A
few minutes before 5 p.m. on a Thursday evening, and most
of the congressmen and senators had already left for the day.
Congressman Tim Mahoney's office was open for business,
but he had left to return to his district.


we were taken in hand by
Carol Horner and her staff at
the Knight Center. They pro-
vided everything to make the
stay productive and comfort-
able.
Horner, a former, reporter
and editor for the Wall Street
Journal and the Philadelphia
Inquirer, takes a low-key,
hands-on approach. Using
humor, she kept us. on sched-
ule, but also relaxed and
engaged.

Getting to work
We got right down to work,
our major task being listen-
ing.
Every day we listened.
Before, during and after every
meal. We listened to people
from the left and to people
from the right; to people who
said one thing, and people
who said the opposite; to peo-
ple who agreed.
And when we weren't lis-
tening, we were talking about
what we had heard.
My fellow writers came
from almost all over.
The largest contingent
turned out to be from Florida
- Highlands County,
Gainsville, Daytona, and
Orlando but many were
from the west Arizona,
Colorado, Montana, Texas
and Utah.
No one was from New
England.
Here is how the seminar
went:

Wednesday
I checked in at 3 p.m. to
join a meet-and-greet session,
then work began for real:
4-5:30 p.m. Gail
Wilensky, who served under
the first President Bush, and
is now senior fellow at Project
HOPE, gave us an overview
of health care in transition.
6 p.m. Uwe Reinhardt, a
professor of economics and
public policy at, Princeton
University, spoke to us about
paying the mounting health
care bill.
Thursday
We were shuttled to down-
town D.C. where we spent
most of the day at the
National Press Club.
9 a.m. We heard
Congressman Bob Filner (D,
Calif.), Chair of the House
Committee on Veteran's
Affairs and David Gorman,
executive director of the
Disabled American Veterans.
They addressed health care
for veterans.
10:45 a.m. We listened
to Risa Lavizzo-Mourey, a
practicing physician and pres-
ident and chief executive offi-
cer of the Robert Wood
Johnson Foundation, who
talked to us about the quality
of health care in this country.
1:30 to 3 p.m. The poli-
tics of the issue was exam-
ined, as in who can solve
health care woes? Chris
Jennings who was a former
advisor to President Bill
Clinton and now advises


Senator Hillary Clinton, and
Douglas Holtz-Eakin, who is
policy director for Senator
John McCain, crossed swords
- with humor, yet seriously
- as to what is actually pos-
sible.
That topic was continued
later in the evening, with an
after-dinner talk by Senator
Ron' Wyden (D-Ore.) who
reviewed what congress
thinks about possible solu-
tions.
Friday
8:30 a.m. Alan Weil,
executive director of the
National Academy for State
Health Policy, addressed the
issues of what individual
states are doing about the
problem of health care deliv-
ery.
10:15-11:45 a.m. John
Rother, director of policy and
strategy for the AARP, and
Marilyn Moon, vice-president
and director of the health pro-
gram at the American
Institutes for Research, spoke
about Medicara at 42 is it
in a mid-life crisis?
We wrapped up with a two-
hour session where we had a
group discussion, reviewing
what we'd heard. Not simply
to parrot back facts, but to
think in terms of story ideas,
different perspectives, as well
as drawing some conclusions.

Getting out and about
We did get a few moments
to ourselves between 3 and
6 p.m. Thursday right in
the heart of the city.
I thought I'd drop in on Tim
Mahoney (D-Fla.) who repre-
sents us, so I walked down to
the Longworth building where
his office is located.
I missed him by 15 min-
utes, the receptionist said. I
hadn't called ahead, so I was-
n't disappointed. I can tell
you Mahoney has an impres-
sive saltwater aquarium in his
outer office.
For those of you who don't
know, Washington D.C., it is a
major city. Security is tight,


evident everywhere.
The buildings housing the
people's business tower over
those they serve. They are
mostly gray or white. Many
streets are broad, all are full
of cars. People walk fast and
seem to know where they are
going. Men wear suits and
ties. Women wear skirts.
The energy is overwhelm-
ing. It is all very exciting.
I saw our president.
Or, I would have seen him
if he'd only rolled his window
down.
As it was, I heard sirens
Thursday afternoon, when I
was walking down
Pennsylvania Avenue heading
for the White House and the
national Christmas tree light-
ing.
I looked back, expecting to
see a fire engine and an ambu-
lance.
Instead, here came a pha-
lanx of five or six gleaming
white motorcycles, all with
side-cars, all flashing red and
blue lights. For a second,

because the riders were wav-
ing at people on either side of
the street, I thought it was a
police Christmas. parade. But
then I saw the police were
waving people to the side, not
waving at people on the side.
Then, zoom, they were past
me, followed by a line of
three limousines and a hand-
ful of SUVs. One of those,
painted bright red, bristled
with maybe 12 different
antennas.
Just as I was thinking,
"There is something you don't
see every day," I noticed how
most of the people around me
just kept plowing on ahead,
showing absolutely no inter-
est in the small parade going
by. I realized this must hap-
pen all time, that it gets old in
a hurry.
So I'm glad I don't live in
Washington D.C., I'd hate to
get so jaded.
On the other hand, it is a
great place to visit. I come
away much richer.

Lifetime Learners enjoy Christmas at Pinewood


By PATRICIA C. POND
News Sun correspondent
LAKE WALES Twenty
members of Lifetime Learners
recently visited Lake Wales to
experience Christmas at
Pinewood, a 1930's
Mediterranean-style estate on
the grounds of Historic Bok
Sanctuary.
Lifetime Learners is a
Community Education pro-
gram at .South Florida
Community College designed
for people 50 years and older.
Members attend lectures, con-
certs, and cultural events, and
can sign up for a variety of
trips such as Florida attrac-
tions, museums, parks and
nature trails.
The Pinewood Estate is a
National Historic Landmark,
and the annual Christmas
home tour has been a favorite
holiday tradition for 13 years.
This year's theme is "Jolly
Jazzy Holiday" and decora-
tions featured instruments
placed in the rooms, musical
ornaments on the trees, and
gifts wrapped in sheet music.
Holiday decorations in each
room are created by a differ-
ent Florida interior designer.
During the tour, every room
was hosted by a docent who
was able to point out its
"unique features, history and
some insight about how life


was lived there in the 1930s.
"The docents were very
knowledgeable and made it so
interesting," said Barbara
More. "It was beautiful to
look at, but it seemed very
dark. I don't think it is the
kind of house I would want to
live in."
Pinewood was built as a
winter estate for Charles
Austin Buck, a Bethlehem
Steel vice president who
made a fortune in industry.
He wanted a place where he
could be surrounded by his
nine children and 18 grand-
children during the holidays.
The house has many of the
characteristics of an antique
Spanish villa, including a bar-
rel-tile roof, thick walls,
heavy carved doors and
woodwork and massive
carved furniture.
The visitors enjoyed some
of the intimate glimpses into a
life well lived. All five bed-
rooms had luxurious private
baths with beautiful tile work.
Mr. Buck's bedroom is
reached by a narrow winding
concrete staircase reminiscent
of a lighthouse. The bedroom
has a private balcony where
Mr. Buck liked to sit and lis-
ten to the carillon.
Another bedroom startled
visitors because a lifesized

mannequin stood before a
mirror, dressed in a slinky,
'30s style satin gown. The fig-
ure was created to resemble
1940s film star Frances
Langford. l Langford, a
Lakeland native, was a friend


of Charles Buck's daughter
Lucy, who invited the actress
to spend the holidays at the
estate. The room was decorat-
ed with such an abundance of
glitz and glamour that one of
the group members remarked:


"I think I would suffocate in
here."
Comments among the
members as they left indicat-
ed that they enjoyed the tour
and thought the docents really
helped bring the old house to


life. All visitors will have to
be content with their memo-
ries, however, as no photos
may be taken inside Pinewood
Estate.
The Lifetime Learners then
gathered for lunch at the love-
ly Carillon Caf6, in the visi-
tors' center. At 1 p.m., they
enjoyed a concert of
Christmas music played on
the 60-bell carillon in the his-
toric 205-foot Bok Singing
Tower. The rest of the after-
noon, they were free to
explore the luish gardens,
lawns and meandering paths
of the Bok Sanctuary.
Upcoming trips scheduled
for Lifetime Learners include
Historic Downtown Sebring,
Sebring Airport and Raceway,
and Payne's Creek Historic
State Park.
The lecture series, held at
FCC's Avon Park Campus
on Thursday mornings, will
begin Jan. 10, 2008.
For registration informa-
tion, contact SFCC's
Community Education
Department at 784-7392 or
784-7388.
The Christmas at Pinewood
display will run through Jan.
1, 2008. For all information

Preschool children party at the Avon Park Library


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Pre-
school children were treated
to snacks, carols and treat
bags Friday at a Christmas
party hosted by the Avon Park


Friends of the Library.
"Each child will receive a
cardboard, hard-backed book
today," said Friendg hostess
Ann Hartsfield.
"And each child will also
receive a special cup with the


words 'Read to me.' "
About 30 children from
Faith Temple Preschool, Tiny
Angels preschool and a home
school group were read to by
Rachel Macklin, a volunteer
at the library, and were led in


Christmas carols by Ann
Caldwell from Tiny Angels.
Since reading and caroling
is thirsty work, the children
were then led into the break
room where they were given
bags filled with books they
could keep, a cup, and candy
while they were treated to
punch and cookies.

DEPUTY
Continued from 1A

Lawrence Schneider, a mem-
ber of the multi-jurisdictional
task force, said he witnessed
Glisson toss the lantern into
bushes at the crime scene,
then reportedly took pictures
of the lantern in the back of
Glisson's patrol car.
After Schneider reported
the incident, a criminal inves-
tigation ensued and, at its
conclusion, the internal inves-
tigation was initiated.
The State Attorney's Office
said there was insufficient
evidence to prosecute a crimi-
nal case.
But, based on Lt. Gaspar


Garcia's internal investiga-
tion, Shrader told Benton, "I
believe there is probable
cause to believe that Det. Sgt.
Sharon Glisson committed
petit theft" during the course
of her law enforcement duties.
Glisson retired on the
advice of her doctor before
the internal investigation was
initiated, Kelly said, explain-
ing the Sheriff's Office had
no disciplinary authority
regardless of the outcome.
Benton's staff attorney,
Mike Durham, said the inter-
nal investigation couldn't
begin until the criminal inves-
tigation concluded.
"The results of the investi-
gation have tarnished the rep-
utation built by a woman who

runways at the Avon Park Bombing Range
were closed for maintenance.
According to Quick, the C-130 and crew
were there to pick-up members of the 82nd,
Airborne and transfer them to their next mis-
sion.
Additionally, Qucik, who hopes to one day
fly the C-130, was fast on the facts concerning
the large bird.
"They can land in as little as 200 feet," said
Quick. "And they are spectacular to watch."
Servicing as the military's workhorse, the


has dedicated her whole
career of 24 years to the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office," Kelly said.
Kelly said the investigation
was based on one man's alle-
gations Schneider.
He said Schneider's per-
sonnel folder at APPD indi-
cates a six-year veteran offi-
cer who came to the force
with questionable references,
including a note from a for-
mer employer who had a
"concern about Daniel being a
police officer" and "does not
think he is honest."
Kelly doesn't note in his
letter whether there were any
positive endorsements.
In addition, he said Glisson
had been trying to remove


primary function of the C-130 is tactical and
intra-theare airlift duty.
The Lockheed built aircraft has a crew of
five, and costs $48.5 million.
The overall length of the plane is 97 feet
with a132- foot wingspan.
Using its aft loading ramp and door the C-
130 can accommodate a wide variety of over-
sized cargo, including everything from utility
helicopters and six wheeled armored vehicles
to standard palletized cargo and military per-
sonnel. In an aerial delivery role, it can air
drop loads up to 42,000 pounds or use its high-
floatation landing gear to land and deliver
cargo on rough, dirt strips.


Schneider from the task force
due to poor, performance.
The attorney also filed a
sworn affidavit from recently-
retired Assistant State
Attorney Joan Hughes, in
which she swears to purchas-
ing, with cash, the lantern
found at Glisson's residence


FLAG
Continued from 1A
the regular Army and seven
with the Michigan Army
National Guard, Marr is the
leader of the five-man group
that includes Bosley, the
father-son team of Jim and
Justin Evans, who are
Operation Iraqi Freedom vet-
erans as members of Bravo,
Battery, and Vietnam veteran
Timothy Greer.
For more than a year,
Marr's been contacting busi-
nesses to let them know that,
despite their best intentions,
their display of the flag is
*"disrespectful."
Of the 15 to 18 local com-
panies he's notified, most
have been agreeable and
understanding of his mission,
often replacing their flags
within days.
A few have grumbled, but
most just don't know the rules
of flag etiquette, Marr said.
"Most of the people flying


and offered as evidence of
theft.
Kelly said the new lantern
at Glisson's home isn't con-
sistent with what would be
used by marijuana growers.
"Everything I put.in there, I
have corroborated," Kelly
told the News-Sun on


the flag do so because they.
believe in it," Bosley said.
In fact, Bosley confessed,
he once believed a well-worn
flag represented the dedicated
daily display of patriotism.
Now, he shares Marr's
opinion on proper flying of
the colors.-
"If you don't have enough
respect for the flag that you're
going to fly it tattered, you
might as well not fly it," Marr
said.
Marr watches businesses
and governments closely. The
latter, he said, do well in
maintaining their flags. The
one time he had to call Parks
and Recreation about a dock
at Lake Istokpoga several
years ago, the flag was
replaced within a week.
Wal-Mart, however,- took
almost a month to change its
flag.
Apparently, the U.S. flags
they sell weren't a high-
enough quality, Marr said,
explaining the store manager


Saturday. "It's not maybe,
kinda, sort of. This is bogus.
Sharon is in a total state of
shock."
Despite the cloud under
which Glisson retired and
ended her career with HCSO,
Kelly said there is no anamos-
ity between her and Benton.


had to order an appropriate
flag.
He said a quality 3-by-5
flag will cost between $30-35
from a vendor such as Valley
Forge. The more expensive,
higher-quality flags have an
8-10 month life span, weather
dependent, of course.
. A good rule of thumb is to
replace the flag annually on a
holiday such as Independence
Day or Flag Day.
"I do this to be educational
and for love country," Marr
said. "That's where I'm com-
ing from."
During a Monday drive
through Avon Park's down-
town area and the north side
of Lake Jackson's Lakeview
Drive, Marr and Bosley noted
far fewer "disrespectful" flags
than in recent weeks.
"You've cleaned up a lot of
them," Bosley said, as they
cruised Avon Park's Main
Street.
Replied Marr, "That's
great. I'm happy. Happier."


AMERICA
Continued from 1A
Immigration Services
requires applicants have a
working knowledge and com-
prehension of American his-
tory, government and
English.
She passed a 100-question
test she thought wouldn't be
hard. It was more difficult
than she anticipated.
"I was asking people in the
office those questions and,
guess what, they didn't know
the answers," Rybinski said.
In addition, she had to pro-
vide five years of detailed tax
information and proof of her
maritall union" that exceed-
ed a marriage certificate.
Immigration wanted to see
that bills, catalogs and corre-
spondence were addressed to
them as a couple, not as
roommates, Rybinski
explained.
In some cases, as con-
firmed by Gavarrete, whose
sister (like Rybinski) married
an American, immigrations
officials make surprise, odd-
hour visits to a married cou-
pie's h6me.
They inspect dressers,
drawers and closets, again,
ensuring the marriage is
more than a ceremony and a
handshake.
Nicole Thomas has heard
similar stories.
A Canadian married to
retired U.S. Navy Cmdr.
Zane Thomas, who made a
bid for congress in 2006 and
is now employed by
Highlands County, Thomas
must secure her green card
before she can think about
citizenship.
"It's been a series of end-
less frustrations for me," she
said, explaining she began
submitting various forms five
months ago. "I still have
nothing to show for it."
For paperwork that has
been processed and for which
she received tracking num-
bers, those numbers aren't
recognized by USCIS yet.


She's been told there's
something of a backlog and
the department is under-
staffed.'
"That pretty much tells
you the state of USCIS right
now," she said.
A woman can only make
so many trips to Fort
Lauderdale to shop and have
her hair done, which Thomas
does every two months or so.
Thomas can't legally work
until she receives her papers
and she can't leave the coun-
try for fear of not getting
back in.
"The system is broken,"
she said. "I have no status
here."
Gavarrete can relate.
In 1990, seven years after
Gavarrete was given the
green light to work indefi-
nitely, immigration brought
him in for an interview.
A year later, an immigra-
tion official denied his 1983
petition for asylum.
After racking up $45,000
in attorney fees which he
continues to pay down,
Gavarrete was again denied,
I this time during a non-jury
trial.
"The judge said, 'I cannot
really grant you political asy-
lum at this time because the
government changed,"'
Gavarrete said.
Indeed it had in Nicaragua,
but his attorney argued that
suspected murderers are tried
according to the laws at the
time of commission. Why not
apply the same standard to
political refugees?
In 1997, President Bill
Clinton signed into law
NACARA Nicaraguan
Adjustment and Central
American Relief Act.
By then, Gavarrete was
married to Indira, the daugh-
ter of his parents' long-time
friends from Nicaragua
whom they happened to
move next door to in
California.
"We were neighbors by
fate," he said.
The couple applied for per-
manent residency and had to


prove they were of good
moral standing and weren't
welfare recipients, "which I
agree with," Gavarrete said.
He prides himself on earn-
ing his engineering degree
without loans or grants and
while working 50-60 hours at
a retail clothing store. He
graduated with honors.
Though their two children
are American-born citizens,
the Gavarretes applied for
naturalization in February,
five years after receiving per-
manent resident status.
They were fingerprinted
April 11 in Miami on
Indira's birthday.
"If you're a permanent res-
ident, I don't see why you
wouldn't want to become a
citizen," Gavarrete said.
Rybinski said the United
States and the Dominican
Republic offer reciprocal
dual citizenship. She plans
on keeping her allegiance to
"the D-R" alongside new
identity. Her children also are
dual citizens.
In October, Ramon and
Indira Gavarrete received
word that their interviews
will be in January in Miami,
inconveniently on different
days.
In general, Gavarrete
agrees with the principle that
immigrants should enter via
legal channels, following the
rules oi~ this country.
However, those rules could
be tweaked for the benefit of
everybody involved. With
fair enforcement and less-
complicated rules, Gavarrete
believes more of the immi-
grants who come will be the
law-abiding residents desired
by anti-illegal immigration
proponents.
"The right hand doesn't
know what the left hand is
doing," he said, noting that
his sister received deporta-
tion papers after she was nat-
uralized. "Hopefully, one day
that'll get fixed."
One could reasonably
expect that Gavarrete would
cast his vote for change.

101 grand years























News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Dorothy Slabaugh (left) here with her
youngest daughter, Shirley Slabaugh,
looking at birthday cards, turned 101
years old Thursday. Slabaugh was born
Dec. 13, 1906. Theodore Roosevelt was
president, a typical car cost $910 and
gasoline was 10 cents a gallon. At 101, a
friend pointed out, she has been alive
36,890 days. Slabaugh spent the bulk of
that time raising two daughters, garden-
ing and embroidering, as well as doing
hand crafts. Once her girls graduated
from high school, Slabaugh went to work
at the county courthouse doing credit
searches. She was married for 48 years
before her husband Erwin passed away
in 1976. Born in Ohio, Slabaugh is a
Buckeye through and through. Five years
ago she moved to Florida to be closer to
her daughter Shirley, but she missed the
cold weather and snow. Settled in now at
Fairway Pines, she has a cat named
Princess. Slabaugh is the matriarch of a
four generation family; her grandson has
twin boys. Mayor George Hensley,
Governor Charlie Christ, and President
Bush all sent best wishes.

Editiril Opinion


.e ws-Sun
Serving Highlands County since 1927
CLARISSA WILLIAMS ROMONA WASHINGTON
S Publisher Executive Editor


SCOTT DRESSEL
Assistant Editor


DAN HOEHNE
Sports Editor


Take HAART

The International Baccalaureate program has
gained much attention over the last few weeks. Many
things are being said about the internationally recog-
nized curriculum. What isn't being discussed is the
abysmally low number of students in Highlands
County that would benefit from the program.
Currently, of the 16,000 high school students in
Polk County, there are only 60 IB students in the sen-
ior class at Bartow High School, in a program that
busses students from as far as. Frostproof.
IB would cost the county thousands of dollars to
start, and unlike common misconceptions, it will not
be able to pay for itself in the near future.
The program in Bartow is able to pay for itself
because it has strict entrance standards, admitting
about 25 percent of students that apply. The IB teach-
ers have been teaching the same material for more
than a decade now, translating to high test scores,
which translates to money for their district.
The teacher problem in Highlands County is not the
quality, but where to find more instructors willing to
spend their time off training for no increase in salary.
If school board members have said in the past
expanding Advanced Placement class offerings was
tough, imagine the creation of 20 new teaching posi-
tions overnight in six different subjects all taught
to high achieving students.
Our AP teachers, a 'capable few teaching toward
tests much like the IB program, earned $64,000 for
the district last year due to their students test results.
hat '!nmbe' may cover some costs for the IB pro-
gfoam. but it was earned by 250 AP students, while the
IB program would help, at most, 25-50 students in a
t with c:., 20 per.-, of the students that
Bartow draws from.
Being a smaller district doesn't mean education has
to suffer, but it does mean careful consideration needs
to be made when spending the smaller amount of
money we have.
This money could be allocated to expand the AP
program, effectively addressing the problem we have
- educating our high achieving students, while not sig-
nificantly hurting the chance a few IB students would
have to get into the school of their choice. College
admissions know not all districts offer the IB pro-
gram, so AP classes still carry considerable weight.
The real problem is that less than 8 percent of
Highlands County students have access to AP classes,
a number that will not increase with the introduction
of the IB program.
The recent creation of the Highlands Advanced
Academics Rising Together program shows the need
to address the education of high achieving students.
Slow, calculated expansion of AP classes should be
the answer, not a program that will somehow instant-
ly solve a growing problem.
There is a solution for educating these students, and
it's in the vein of the low cost, high reward HAART
program, not internationally recognized programs
popular in the districts large enough to support the
cost burden.

Mighty migraine takes over one's life


Lately I've been suffering
more than my share of
migraine headaches.
In my opinion, more than
my share of migraines means
more than one in a decade.
However, God decided that,
in addition to making me left-
handed and a bookworm who
is fond of chocolate, I would
also be prone to migraines.
And in the last couple of
weeks I have been very prone.
Those of you who suffer
migraines are now making
sympathetic noises at the col-
umn already. The rest of you
are probably shaking your
heads and thinking, "so she's
having headaches. So what?"
To put it as nicely as possi-
ble, you people in the latter
group have all the sensitivity
of a block of wood. In fact, a
block of wood might be more
sensitive if it is blocking any
evil light that might be trying
to stab into my brain.
Yes, light trying to kill you
is one result of a migraine. So
is pain that cannot be distract-
ed from by anything less than'
a coma. To call a migraine a


headache is to
refer to

Katrina as a

"rainstorm."
The migraines have made
for a couple of interesting
weeks. The day usually starts
off fine. 1 have no headache,
my shoulder and neck mus-
cles are nice and loose, and
everything is fine.
Then I get out of bed.
My migraines usually start
off by pain in my neck and
shoulders. If I don't interrupt
things there, they will proceed
to' my head and start as. a
headache. If I still can't head
it off at the pass, a migraine
ensues, and so does any
chance of my being a produc-
tive human beiilg in the fore-
seeable future.
My husband is quite sym-
pathetic for someone who
rarely gets migraines. He tries
to help me recover and under-
stands if I take a strong medi-
cine to fight the migraine that
he needs to get James to fix
dinner, because once I take

.a's cine I am inca-
pable of using
"k anything more
Ware complicated than
a pillow.
The other thing Don does is
try to persuade me to watch
my posture. One possible
cause of my recent surge of
migraines is that I've been
deeply involved with an
important video game. This
game, called "Final Fantasy
12," was left here by my old-
est son John when he was
home for Thanksgiving. He
knew it would get me hooked:
I think he thought that would
be a good thing.
Now, the problem with
playing this video game (a
problem besides the fact it is
addictive and keeps me up
late at night working on it) is
that I've been sitting
crouched on a stool close to
the television in order to play
it. This has caused me to
assume what Don referred to
as a "crane position." Going
into medical mode, he sur-
mised that this hunched over
position might cause pain to


my neck and shoulders, thus
starting my vicious migraine
cycle.
Now, some husbands at this
point would demand their
wife stop playing her video
game. Don was much more
sensitive than that. He
brought in a dining room
chair for me to sit in so I
could play Final Fantasy 12
with proper back support.
And then he told me to stop
playing the game for a while.
Needless to say, I did get
back to Final Fantasy 12, and
I am trying to remember to
keep proper posture as I con-
tinue to follow the intricate
story line, which requires me
to kill screens full of strange
looking monsters. Let's hope
the monsters don't try to
defeat me by destroying my
posture and sending the Light
of Doom.

Nugent is not the best
representative
Editor:
On Nov. 25, the News-Sun
ran a column by Bill
Steigerwald interviewing Ted
Nugent. Steigerwald says that
hunting is good for the coun-
try. a point he fails to prove.
He asks Nugent how the
decline of hunting can be
reversed.
Ted Nugent's views can be
politely described as bizarre
to downright dangerous. For
most of his adult life. Nugent
has divided his time between
being a rock star and hunting.
He also does radio shows
where he spews incredible
venom at the society that
imposed this lifestyle on him.
At a speech in August,
Nugent dared Senator Obama
to "suck my machine gun,"
Rolling Stone reported. He
was holding two machine
guns as he spoke. He insulted
Hillary Clinton in the same
speech. Although Nugent
presents himself as a
Christian and a non-drinker.
he certainly does not abstain
from cussing or insulting lan-
guage. Much of what he says
could not be quoted here even
if I wanted to.
Most of society's problems
are caused by "stoned, dirty,
stinking hippies." Nigent has
said. quoted in the Wall Street
.Jourual in July. Statements
like that make you wonder if
Ted Nugent has read a-news-
paper in 30 years.
"It all gets do(I\\ to the fact
that all thosc \ ,ho> tiiiii/c me
are a bunch ofl tippic" and


hypocrites," he said in a 2002
Salon interview. Gun acci-
dents only happen because of
alcohol, drugs and "undisci-
plined children," according to
Nugent in the same interview.
On the Rush Limbaugh
show he said that the way to
save endangered species is to
hunt them. On preserving the
environment: "The anti-
hunters haven't bought one
cattail." I don't know about
anti-hunters, but environmen-
tal organizations like the
Nature Conservancy and the
Audubon Society have bought
a great deal of land for habitat
protection.
Nugent is on the board of
the National Rifle
Association. The next time
the media interviews Wayne
LaPierre they should ask how
an organization with Ted
Nugent on the board can be
taken seriously.

Encourage the
children to talk
Editor:
This subject is in my heart.
I see these horrible stories
of children being raped ...
babies ... young ones. I was
molested by an uncle from 6
to 13. This is a crime that
should put a person in jail for
life. When I was growing up
parents didn't believe you.
This person lived with us.
The thing that scares you is
the threat of "if you tell." It
just wasn't done.
My uncle would be left

and makes it impossible. If we

alone with me. He would say
"Go lock the door." His room
was in the attic.
He had a pool table; it was
fixed up nice. He would tell
my mom he was reading to
me and he'd teach me to shoot
pool, listen to records. I was
scared. I didn't know what it
was all about.


As I got older, it happened
every time my parents were
gone. After years, you would
be even more scared. Then in
your thoughts are shame; that
people would shame you,
instead of him ... that you
asked for it. When you get
older, you still keep it to your-
self.
It comes to the surface
when you read and see these
stories. No one knows the tor-
ture you go through. The
shame is overwhelming.
I pray that everyone talks to
their children. Check things
out and listen. Watch for


changes.
I hurt so bad for these chil-
dren. When I was young and
this was going on, no one
talked about this stuff. Now
that it's out in the open and
talked about, we can't seem to
stop it.
We wonder what makes
these people sick and dement-
ed to even think about it, let
alone do it. I'd give anything
to find a way to convict all
these people or stop them
before they hurt another child.
I pray as parents we can
stop this. We must let our
children know there is noth-
ing that can't tell us, no mat-
ter who it hurts. Tell them to
let you know if anyone makes
a move on them. Let them
know it does not have to hap-
pen. Tell them to get help
right away.

Take time to listen to people this holiday season


'Tis the season to deck the
halls with bows of holly. 'Tis
the season to be jolly.
However, surveys show that
not many people share the
pleasure of the festive season.
Bah, Humbug. The holiday
is overshadowed with holiday
blues .that could come as a
result of the illness of a loved
one, loss of a loved one, being
widowed, divorced, separat-
ed, loss of a child or close
friend, poor health or loneli-
ness. Whatever is- the con-
tributing factor, many among
us fear the holiday.
"Hello, good morning," I
said to a stranger. "Good
morning," replied the
stranger. "How are you," I
enquired. The stranger paused
for a moment before answer-
ing. With a sigh, she respond-
ed, "So, so."
As I walked away from the
stranger, I couldn't help but
notice the sadness in her voice
and the emptiness in her eyes.
Turning back, I caught up
with the stranger and


said,"Excuse me for asking,
but why are you sad?"
"You'd be sad too, .if you
had to take care of your 87-
year-old mother who is unable
to feed or help herself, along
with taking care of a husband
who is suffering from
Alzheimer's." She proceeded
to tell me that she had no con-
tinuous help. She said that she
is weary from the stress of
having to be in constant
demand. However, someone
comes in twice weekly for
two hours, she said.
As the stranger shared her
story yith me, a tear slowly
trickled down her left cheek.
She quickly brushed it away. I
wanted tp give her a comfort-
ing hug. I wanted to tell her
that the pain would soon go
away, and that everything
would soon be alright. I knew
I'd be lying if I told her so.
I asked her about her
friends, family members and
church family. She said after
she took up the responsibility
of care giver, they slowly
1 *

drifted away. Church mem-
bers no longer called. As a
matter of fact, she told me
that 33 weeks ago she sent a
message to the minister of the
church she use to attend, ask-
ing for spiritual guidance, and
she got no response.
This stranger is not seeking
handouts, money, or food. All
she needed is someone who
will listen, someone to show
they care, someone to encour-
age her along life's painful
journey. As she departed, I
wished her well and offered to
ask members of my church to
pray for her ahd her loved


ones.
There is also the conversa-
tion I had wish another
stranger on Sunday night,
who shared her story of a love
lost. She said this will be her
first Christmas without her
husband of more than 40
years. He died in August after
a long battle with cancer.
She said she was 17 and he
was 19 when they met. They
got married soon after, and
had been inseparable until he
died. Lovingly she shared a
picture of them in happier
times. They were a beautiful
couple.
Although she's estranged
from her family, she has sup-
port from her friends and
church body.
As she shared stories of
their 40 years, a woman in
close proximity blurted, "I
was robbed of two years.
After 38 years, I lost my hus-
band, he was the best man."
As we celebrate this festive
season, let's not forget those
who are struggling. Let's not
I


forget those who need healing
from grief and pain. Let's not'
forget those who are battling
loneliness. I encourage you to
seek out those whose lives
you can touch with love, and
help to brighten their seem-
ingly dull empty lives.
From my family to yours,
have a Christmas filled with


food, family, friends, love,
and happy moments. Don't
forget to keep Christ in
Christmas.

Consider
Jan Merop

Musical

Christmas

greetings
Imagine if you set out
to compose Christmas
poetry every year, reflect-
ing your own wonder of
the Christmas season.
The true meaning of
Christmas so captivates
your heart, you can't set-'
tle for the ordinary. You
then send your friends
and family a Christmas
card with original verse
and music composed by
you for them something
new every year.
However, along the
way you're discovered!
In a very small nut-
shell, this is the story
behind some of our
favorite Christmas carols.
It is told that in 1922, an
Episcopal priest, who
loved everything about
Christmas except the
bland greeting cards,
decided to pen a
Christmas carol: He com-
bined it with his own art-
.-work creating a special
Chri-,m,;nia greeting card
for those on his list.
The recipients were so
blessed that he made it an
annual family tradition
even though he was not a
pro at music. However,
later his son received a
musical education and
agreed to write the music
while his dad provided
the lyrics.
Eventually, when his
father died, the son con-
tinued the family tradi-
tion and hired a friend to
create the poetry. This
family friend became a
second mother to the
musician's wife while he
was on the road. When
she was pregnant, she
shared with her poet
friend how she imagined
a child would see Jesus.
Inspired by the
thoughts, a new carol was
born. But, it wasn't until
a couple of years later in
1951 that the music was
written and the new carol
card sent, "Some
Children See Him."
Then the musician
asked some professionals
to check the harmonies
on one of his songs.
They were so impressed,
they asked for more.
Then they performed
them and thus began the
-sharing of the composer's

Today's youth: Becoming our future as environmentally-aware, action-oriented citizens


More than 500,000 high
school students have jumped
on the environmental band
wagon thanks to Envirothon,
an environmental program
designed to reach today's
youth. Combining in-class
curriculum and hands-on field
experiences, the Envirothon
program is an excellent way
to supplement environmental
education inside and outside
the traditional classroom.
Students that are involved
in this worthy program
acquire hands-on environ-
mental problem-solving skills
in five natural resource areas;
soils, aquatics, forestry,
wildlife and current issues.
The Envirothon works in part-
nership with local conserva-
tion districts, forestry associa-
tions, educators, and cooper-
ating natural resource agen-
cies to organize and conduct
competitions on the local,
regional and state levels.
Winning teams from each
state advance to the national
Envirothon for an opportunity
to compete for recognition,

regional competition Corine Burgess District has been


held at
Caloosahatchee Regional
Park on Dec. 7. All of the
teams did very well and Avon
Park High School won an
award for scoring high on the
test on wildlife. The team of
five students Ray Arango,
Casey Cliett, Brandi Goodwin
(alternate), Gary Hawkins,
Matt Jordon and Cody
Kindrick with assistance
from teacher Cheryl Moffat
and HSWCD staff, has been
studying for .the past year in
an effort to prepare for the
event. They will go to the
state competition in April of


working with the
team. Hands-on training and
exercises working with the
students has helped to prepare
them for these competitions.
These educational sessions
will continue between
HSWCD and the students
until the time of the state
challenge. It is a joy to see our
youth so interested in the
environment and so willing to
compete with other students
from around the state in an
effort to expand their knowl-
edge.
"The mission of the
Envirothon is to develop

knowledgeable, skilled and
dedicated citizens who are
willing and prepared to work
towards achieving and main-
taining a natural balance
between the quality of life and
the quality of the environ-
ment. The Envirothon mission
is accomplished by develop-
ing in young people an under-
standing of the principles and
practices of natural resource
management and ecology and
through practice dealing with
complex resource manage-
ment decisions."


Student Sarah Larose said,
"I've participated in the
Envirothon for three years
and it has been a wonderful
experience. I have gained
years of experience that will
definitely help me in college
and in my future career as a
biologist."
Today's students are tomor-
row's future. It is important
that they are educated about
the world around them. Field-
trips to natural resource sites,
museums, presentations given
by professionals and careful


study of environmental mate-
rials are just a few of the
opportunities given to stu-
dents with Envirothon. Not
only does this program edu-
cate our youth, it teaches the
value of team work and
healthy competition.
If you are interested in get-
ting involved with
Envirothon, please visit our

Web site at www.highlandssw
cd.org/ or contact our office at
402-6545 for more informa-
tion. Or you can visit the
Envirothon Web site at
www.envirothon.org. We, at
HSWCD, would love to spon-
sor even more teams from
Highlands County and are
looking for interested schools
and students for next years
competition. This is a won-
derful opportunity for stu-
dents to "get involved" and
learn about their natural sur-
roundings. In addition, mone-
tary prizes, scholarships and
recognition are awarded to
winning teams, including the
teachers.

Lady Dragons can't tame Wildcats


News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE
Sierra Weaver battles for a rebound with McKeel's Cappy
Toney, #14, and Madi Cook, #30, Friday night. Weaver
would lead the Lady Dragons with 10 points, but the.Lady
Wildcats came away with a 40-27 win.


By DAN HOEHNE

LAKE PLACID It was
not a great night for the Lady
Dragons as they dropped to
.500 on the season, 5-5, with a
40-27 loss to the visit-
ing. McKeel Academy Mc
Wildcats. 4
It wasn't a good first
quarter for either team -I
with just two baskets Lake
apiece for a 4-4 score
after eight minutes of J
play.
The pace picked up a
bit in the second period,
unfortunately moreso for
McKeel.
After a Shardesia Sholtz
floater opened the scoring,
Wildcats Kristen
Throckmorten and Cappy


K


P

Toney got loose inside for
hoops and Toney connected
on two free throws.
Ali Baker scored inside for
the Lady Dragons to halt the
run, but six straight points for
McKeel closed the first
eel half with a 16-8'lead.
I Lake Placid made a
bit of a run to start the
third to close the gap
'lacid slightly.
After Ciara Cox
made one of two free
throws, Kaneisha
Hamilton did the same
and Stacy Davis banked one
in off the glass to make it 17-
11.
But Cox scored three times,
including a three-pointer,
Throckmorton hit a short
jumper, Madi Cook and Katie


Black added their names to
the scorebook and suddenly it
was 30-11.
It didn't help the Dragon
offensive flow when point
guard Hamilton twisted her
ankle and was forced to the
bench for an extended period
of time.
Hamilton would return
later in the game, but obvi-
ously wasn't her usual effec-
tive self, only netting one
point on the night.
Davis and Ashley Paeplow
closed the third with scores to
make it 30-15.
Sierra Weaver chopped two
points off the lead to open the
fourth and after two Toney
free throws missed, Davis

High School Boys Basketball


Red Devils boys



finally net one


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK "Finally,
finally, finally," chanted Avon
Park head coach Luther
Clemons after the Devils 66-
62 win over the Palmetto
Tigers Friday in a Class 4A
District 10 match-up.
"We finally won one,"
Clemons said. "We kept our
defensive intensity up Avon
the whole, game. We .Av
aren't perfect, but
that's how we play." 5
The Red Devils pah
came on strong, and
controlled the ball for
most of the first peri- U
od, leading the Tigers
every step of the way.
With a simplified offense
and a focus on, passing and'
team work, Avon Park was
able to better control the ball
and keep the turnovers down.
"We' changed oufr offense
this week, the guys felt it was
over complicated, so we went
back to simpler things," said
Clemons.
The second period, went
pretty much the same way.
The Red Devils' defense
kept the Tigers from taking
advantage of the few
turnovers created and held


I1

in
n

Ii


them to just 12 points.
At the half the score was
29-23 Avon Park.
Coming out at a slow and
steady pace during the third
period, the Devils soon began
to get excited with their lead
and started to take more risks
attempting shots from the out-
side allowing the Tigers to'
score 15 points in the'
Park last few minutes, but
Br Avon Park; still led at
the end 48-38. ;
6 The fast pace con-
etto tinued into the fourth
2 period, and that's when
the Tigers' rally began
to take its toll.
Led by ,Breyon
Smith, Palmetto fought hard
to pull ahead of the Red
Devils 58-57 with just 1:45
left on the clock. Smith
would be the Tigers' top scor-
er with 15 points when the
game ended.
Again, Clemons began to

stress that the Devils slow
down and use, the clock to
their advantage.
"Calm.down! Slow down!"
yelled Clemons from the side
line during the last few min-
utes of the game.

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

The confusion

that is the

'steroid era'

So the Mitchell Report is
complete and part of public
knowledge.
I'm not sure if it gives
baseball another black eye,
or serves as a further wake-
up call -,or either.
Some former players
were named, much to the
chagrin of other former
players, and I can't say that
I disagree completely.
Sure, it satisfies the
publics curiosity and
unquenched appetite for dirt
on the rich and famous.
But what does it really
solve to now know that
David Justice allegedly was
a steroid user?
And it's weird, because I
have been very staunch in
my stance to do all that can
be done to get performance
enhancing drugs out of the
game and to catch and pun-
ish harshly those caught
using.
But this just kind of
seems hollow.
No substantial proof
other than former trainers of
questionable character and
some paper trails.
No admittance's of guilt,
nobody caught red-handed,
or mid-injection.
Rather, we're seeing
players named lashing out
to profess their innocence.
These are players who
were told that they may be
named and that they could
meet with the investigators
and talk but refused.
If they are so 'innocent
and taken aback by the
accusation, inference, paper
trail then why didn't they
meet with'-them when they
had the chance.
Now that it's gone public
and their images potentially
tarnished are they coming
out of the woodwork to pro-
claim how squeaky clean

ROIDS
Continued from 1D
they are.
I suppose the report gives us
a little more insight as to how
widespread the steroid era was,
and likely still is.
Once thought to be the stuff
for the long-ball hitters, we
now see that pitchers were
making use of the stuff too.
Not necessarily to throw
harder, but to be able to throw
hard for longer and more often.
Utility players and middle
infielders were using it to just
keep their careers alive, just to
remain in the big leagues and
I can't say I totally fault them
for that, in context.
But it's the big names we
wanted and we got a few big
names.
The All-Star players who
already were extra special tal-
ents, artificially enhancing
themselves, to be mega-stars
and break long-standing, her-
alded records.
Was Barry Bonds already an
awesome talent that was head-
ed to the Hall of Fame?
He sure was.
Roger Clemens was already
heralded as one of the best
.pitchers of the post-war era, if
not of all time.
But he just added to that by
continuing to be a mega-power
pitcher into his mid 40s.
Baseball traces its' -history
through its' numbers, its'
records.
Records achieved by some
great men, by some jerks, by
some bad men but men who
set about achieving those with
just what they had, their natural
ability.
The steroid era.has cast so
much confusion now into the
fiber of what Major League
Baseball is, the numbers.
And just like the confusion it
has bought about, the Mitchell
Report just gives a little more
of 'a glimpse into that confu-
sion.
Dan Hoehne is the Sports Editor
of the News-Sun. He can be

Lake Placid's Kyle Thompson, #3, and Geovanni Morales,
#12, pause in the rain before getting the ball in play Friday
night against visiting McKeel. The Dragons overcame an
early 2-0 deficit to win 5-4 on two goals apiece from Antonio
Santana and Hugo Medina along with one from Thompson.
"Hopefully this will be a shot in the arm for us," head coach
Josh Virkler said. "We scored five goals in our first eight
games and seven in our last two." The team heads to
Frostproof Tuesday in hopes of moving up in the district
standings.

"We need to have
patience. This is our game,
and we just need to slow
down," he stressed during
their last time-out.
All told, Red Devil leaders
Marvin Williams and Jerry
Sullivan would lead the scor-
ing at 12 points apiece fol-
lowed closely by Rickey
Taylor who netted 11 points.
"I am proud of these kids,
they could have given up
already this season, but they
stuck in there," Clemons con-
cluded.

Cox made one free throw
for McKeel and Weaver hit
two jumpers to keep hope
alive, for Lake Placid.
But the Ladies in Green
would only manage two more
scores the rest of the way, a
Sholtz lay-in and Weaver
drive, as the Wildcats clawed
their way to the victory.
Lake Placid will be back in
action with another district
match-up Tuesday night
when they travel to
Frostproof to take on the
Bulldogs.
