LORIDA- An early morning dispute
Wednesday resulted in a victim being
stabbed, two children hospitalized after a
high-speed car crash and a suicide,
police said.
Edith Castellano-Garcia, 21, is in sta-
ble condition after being stabbed by
boyfriend Benjamin Toscano-Cruz, 30,
sometime before 4 a.m. Wednesday,
according to Lt. John Chess, Highlands
County Sheriff's Office.
"It's a Christmas miracle that these
kids survived," Chess said of the car
crash that followed the disturbance, .as
reported on newssun.com Wednesday.
Toscano-Cruz stabbed himself numer-
ous times, the fatal blow striking his
heart, Chess said Thursday, citing the
medical examiner's report.
But, before killing himself, Toscano-
Cruz left the Loop Drive home where he
had stabbed Castellano-Garcia, fleeing
in a car with the two children.
Castellano-Garcia, girlfriend and
mother of his 6-month-old son, was
taken to Raulerson Hospital in
Okeechobee by her father.
Chess said Toscano-Cruz was driving
at a "high-rate of speed" on County
Road 721 and failed to stop at the "T"
intersection at U.S. 98.
"Somehow, all three survived and
were able to get out of the car," he said,
explaining officers ,concluded nobody
was ejected and there were no brake
markings. "For that car to go through the.
woods and tumble as it did, he had to be
going very fast."
Child restraints were not present, but
an airbag deployed.
Chess said the department received
the call about a domestic disturbance at
4:05 a.m. and dispatched patrol deputies.
When they arrived, the Loop Drive

Florida Highway Patrol is in estigating an early Wednesday morning crash at the intersection of U.S. 98 and County Road 721,
from which the occupants a man and two children escaped. The Highlands County Sheriff's Office is calling the children's
sur i\ al a miracle. The driver was determined by the slate medical examiner to have committed suicide.


residence was empty.
With information from family and
friends that children were missing, the
department issued an Ambei Alert
Around 6 a.m., a motorist .saw the
infant boy and toddler girl at the inter-
section of U.S. 98 and C.R. 721, which
Chess described as "heavily traveled."
When deputies arrived, they thought
Toscano-Cruz had abandoned the chil-'
dren roadside, Chess said.
They soon found the
-"fatheri/b,,\ fiernd su- speit. ',-,as Cheiss
referred to Toscano-Ciuz, dead on the
north side of the highway, the opposite
side of U.S.-98 from the children.


With multiple stab wounds, detectives
couldn't rule out homicide until the
medical examiner's office completed an
autopsy.
"That one in the heart is what did him
in," Chess said, explaining a to.icolog\
report is expected in about eight weeks.
"Weapons". were recovered, but Chess
chose not to elaborate.
"She had defensive pounds. Chess
said referencing the medical examiner's
report, when asked how investigators
-determined suicide and not honrikide.
\%as the cause of death. "He did not."
And, there was no indication that
another vehicle had struck Toscano-


Cruz, he said.
"Everybody is sitting here scratching
their heads wondering how they sur-
vived," Chess said. "I don't care what
anybody says, the Lord had his hands in
this."
The infant was in critical condition
Thursday at a West Palm Beach trauma
center, he said.
The toddler was kept for observation
Wednesday at Raulerson Hospital in
Okeechobee and released Thursday to
family.
Anybody x\ith information about the
stabbing or the accident are asked to call
Det. Bran Kramer. 402-7250.

Air Force Range on Thursday morning. The Navy jet, which had been stationed on the 'USS John F.
Kennedy,' was jettisoned by its pilot under unknown circumstances. It will end its days in Lake Verona,
an object for scuba divers to explore.



Prepare for a huge




splash in Lake Verona

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK City
Manager C.B. Shirey and local
activist Preston Colby went
shopping at the Avon Park Air
Force Range's junk yard
Thursday morning.
They were looking for suit-
able pieces to sink in Lake
Verona, and selected an anti-
aircraft artillery piece and the
fuselage of an F-18 Navy jet.


The idea is to create an inter-
esting and challenging scuba
diving training course that will
attract instructors and their stu-
dents from all over Central and
South Florida.
Colby said Lake Verona,
with its depth and clarity of
water, is ideal for teaching
scuba diving. With public park-
ing and bathrooms along side, it
is a better choice than the popu-
lar Lake Denton, which is in a
residential neighborhood and
lacks services.
A diving platform has


already been anchored in place
about 20 feet below the surface,
so divers may gather without
stirring up the bottom sediment.
Adding the military hardware
will create sites of interest for
divers to explore or use in train-
ing exercises.
Before being sunk, both
pieces will be deep cleaned and
prepared by the city. Volunteers
will transport them from the air
base, and do the actual sinking.
Colby expects to have the
pieces in the lake by the end of
January.

with a firearm, possession of
firearm as a convicted felon
and domestic violence.

SEBRING The Harder
Hall bankruptcy case will soon
be in front of a fresh set of eyes.
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court
in Miami appointed Soneet
Kapila as examiner to the bank-
ruptcy case. His responsibility
will be to look over the books
of Joran Realty, owners of
Harder Hall, to see whether the
records are accurate.
According to Marsha
Rydberg, who is representing
the city of Sebring in the Harder
Hall bankruptcy case, he will
also be examining whether
Joran's transactions "are


bonafide business transactions,
or whether there's something in
there that is maybe a little more
nefarious."
Kapila will then report back
to the court after an approxi-
mately 30-day investigation and
report the results of his study
He will then recommend
whether a Chapter 11 Trustee
should be appointed to the case.
Kapila's decision about
appointing a Chapter 11 Trustee
"would be based on whether or
not (Harder Hall owner Mark)
Shenker has- the capability or
proposing a confirmable plan,"
Rydberg said, "and whether or
not the books and records the


debtor has kept evidence any
improprieties or suspicious con-
duct."
Kapila's appointment to the
examiner position follows the
recommendation made by the
Sebring City Council, and was
agreed upon by Shenker and the
court-appointed trustee working
on the case.
Kapila, a certified public
accountant from Miami, was
appointed during a hearing
Wednesday by Judge Laurel
Isicoff. Kapila is "very well
respected," Rydberg said. "He's
very well known and highly
regarded. He's an accountant
with a lot of experience."


Langford bids farewell to Teen Court


Rydberg told the Sebring
City Council Tuesday they
should expect Kapila to come to
Sebring and examine records
during the examination process.
"If the examiner does a good
job, he'll come visit," Rydberg
said, "because he'll want to
chase the money."
Investor Jay Landsman, who
has invested in the Harder Hall
property, has agreed to finance
the cost of the examiner.
Landsman has been involved
with the Harder Hall property
for about 90 days now, City
Administrator Bob Hoffman
said. Landsman has an agree-
ment with Shenker that allows
Landsman to go out and seek
refinancing in an effort to finish
the long-delayed project.
"If Landsman is successful,"
Hoffman said, "his corporation
will own about 90 percent of
the assets. Shenker will retain
about 10 percent if they're suc-
cessful, and that's a big if."
As a condition of delaying
the bankruptcy process for the
examiner, Landsman was also


required to adhere to three con-
ditions to protect the property
during the examination
process.He must:
Keep the electricity on to
prevent mold from occurring in
the already-completed sections
of the hotel. The electricity is
on now, and Landsman must
keep it on.
Keep the insurance on the
property current. Landsman
told city staff insurance was
being kept current.
Provide around-the-clock,
professional security service on
the property to protect the work
that has already been done.
The idea of appointing the
examiner came after the second
meeting of creditors Monday. It
was agreed upon by the U.S.
Trustee assigned to the case,
Joran Realty's lawyer,
Landsman, and the city of
Sebring.
The Sebring City Council
unanimously passed a motion
Tuesday recommending the
appointment of the examiner to
the case.

Highlands County Clerk of Courts Luke E. Brooker presents a plaque and a scrapbook to Judge
J. David Langford Tuesday evening during Langford's last Teen Court session at the Highlands
County Courthouse in Sebring. The scrapbook was compiled by members of Teen Court, a pro-
gram that gives non-violent, first-time teenage offenders a second chance to avoid a criminal
record. Langford has presided over the the program since it began 10 years ago. Judge Peter F.
Estrada will be the new Teen Court presiding judge starting January 2007.



Donaldson Park Beach closed as precaution


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK A ring of
pollution was sighted in Lake
Verona Thursday morning, run-
ning along the beach rim in
Donaldson Park.
The sighting coincides with
the return of the state health
department's December water
samples, taken from the lake
Dec. 11, showing a high eleva-
tion of bacteria.
Additional samples were
taken Thursday afternoon in
order to more fully understand
the problem. Authorities are
waiting for the new results to
determine what actions need to
be taken.
City officials have closed the
beach as a precaution until the


exact nature of the problem is
determined.
It is too soon to speculate on
what might have caused the
pollution.
Seagulls have caused prob-
lems in the past with the


amount of the fecal matter they
produce, but the dirty ring
could also be the result of
someone dumping into a storm
drain.
Water samples taken in
November were normal.


News-Sun
Former Sebring City Council
member Pauline White has
received the distinction of
being named the National
Active and Retired Federal
Employees (NARFE) as
Chapter 288 Member of the
Month for December.
White served on the city
council and was secretary of
NARFE's Highlands County
Chapter 288 for a number of
years. She decided she was
called to do more, so she sold
her home in Sebring, trans-
ferred her church membership
and accepted the call to help
some of the poorest and most
depressed people in the United
States.
She moved to a once pros-
perous area of Lynch, Ky, a
coal producing area with now
high unemployment. Members
of NARFE Chapter 288 lind


local churches collected many
articles that White needed in
support of
her mission.
In the sum-
mer these
items were
delivered to
Lynch, to
aide her in
her mission.
Recently
White
signed on WHITE
for two
more 1 years
of mission work in Lynch. She
is director of Shepherd's Pantry,
a Southern Baptist Ministry
with the mission 'motto
"Feeding His Sheep." The mis-
sion currently provides assis-
tance to 69 families, or 162
people.
She is still a member of
'AR'E local chapter 288.

'Marvelous Moods of Christmas'
News-Sun
LAKE WALES --Thirty-six years ago, Historic Bok Sanctuary
acquired Pinewood Estate, a 20-room Mediterranean Revival mansion
built in the early 1930s and now listed on the National Register of
Historic Places.
Occupying nearly eight acres, the rambling two-story home was
originally built by Charles Austin Buck, a vice president of Bethlehem
Steel, as a winter retreat so he could be surrounded by his nine chil-
dren and 18 grandchildren during the holidays. Each year, a team of
noted interior designers from throughout central Florida with a team
of 150 volunteers transform the mansion into a holiday showcase.
Experience this early 20th century industrialist's luxurious lifestyle
on this Holiday Home Tour from Nov. 24-Jan. 1. This year's theme is
"The Marvelous Moods of Christmas."
Christmas Tours of the 12,900-square-foot mansion are conducted
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 1-5 p.m.
on Sunday. There won't be any tours Sunday or Monday.
Admission to Historic Bok Sanctuary and a tour of Pinewood costs
$17 for adults, $8 for children 5-12 years of age, and is free for chil-
dren under 5. Guided walking tours of Pinewood are also offered
throughout the year. Check at the Visitor's Center for times and avail-
ability, or call (863) 676-1408 or visit www.boksanctuary.org.

This tiled bench sits above an original grotto where the path leads to
a patio with a frog fountain and the sunroom off the loggia (one of
three sunrooms). Note that they are different on the edging and
seating portion. Throughout the home, tiling combines different
motifs for a unique look throughout. A different tile pattern is in
every single room, and every single door is a different design.

Prevention Units, to act as
agents for the police depart-
ment.
While detectives watched,
the 18 year olds attempted to
buy alcohol at 13 Avon Park
businesses.
In all cases, the clerks asked
for and reviewed the "investiga-
tive aids'" identification.
All but two rejected the pur-
chase because the "customer"
was too young.
But, at B&M Food Store,
998 U.S. 27 North, and A&N
Food Store, 200 W. Main


Street, the clerks mistakenly
used their tobacco birthday
"cheat sheet" instead of one
designated for alcohol purchas-
es.
Despite, or because of, the
errors, arrest and summons
were issued for the second-
degree misdemeanor violations.
"We want to reassure all
establishments that they need to
verify the age of anybody they
suspect of being under the age
of 21," Mercurio said. "After
the new year, we're going to do
it again for tobacco."

Sharing a laugh


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
AVON PARK He had to
lose about 50 pounds to get
there, but Avon Park Chief of
Police Frank S. Mercurio grad-
uated from the FBI National
Academy.
The 28-year law enforcement
veteran completed the 11-week
course Dec. 15 at Quantico, Va.
Mercurio is the first Avon
Park officer and one of four
officers from Highlands County
to have attended the academy,
City Manager C.B. Shirey said
in a press release.
"I hope to never see the guy
that was 50 pounds heavier for
some time," Mercurio said
Thursday, explaining that he
intends to import some of the

friends.
The first year they were able
to buy bikes for five kids.
Last year they had high
hopes to double that amount,
eventually raising enough
money to buy eight bikes.
This year was different.
"We got the guts to go up in
front of our church," Thomas
said. "The church itself raised
over $2,000, which was most of
the money."
With an abundance of funds
in hand thanks to friends, fami-
ly and First Presbyterian
Church of Sebring, the girls had
a lot of work to do.
They headed to a local gift
tree seeking those children who


FBI's physical fitness regime to
his department.
Geared toward law enforce-
ment management, the training
included sessions on contempo-
rary issues, labor laws, inves-
tigative interviewing, fitness,
forensics and legal issues.
"The program validated that
a lot of what we do here is on
the cutting edge," Mercurio
said.
Another Florida agency rep-
resented at the academy lacked
a standardized testing proce-
dure for police applicants, a
process the Avon Park depart-
ment will share with it.
His class had 266 law

included military members,

w heeled happiness in the hands
of strangers.
The girls found 33 kids hop-

left over and no more bike
requests on the tree they didn't
stop there.
They scoured the tree look-
ing for other items, from
requests of sports or games to a
pair of Heelie shoes.
"Some kids had sports writ-
ten down, so we went out and
got all kinds of sports balls and
equipment," Thomas said. "We
even found the siblings of the
kids that we bought bikes for so
they got whatever they wanted
too."
Although still thinking about
plans for next year, Hart said
she is glad to have all this
year's shopping done.


countries.
Mercurio shared a room with
an officer from Illinois in a dor-
mitory-style quad with officers
from New Jersey and Pakistan.
While his department is on
par with national standards in
some aspects, Mercurio wants
to reinforce what he learned
about statement analysis when
interviewing suspects and
forensics.
"We know our limitations,"
he said, explaining that the
some forensics work is farmed
out to either Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement or to the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office.

the holidays

bright

KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Highlands County's skyline is
bright this holiday season.
Helping light up the skies are
(clockwise from top left) Mary
and Jim Kwitowski and their
neighbors at 1931-1933 Fernway
Street in Sebring; Hector and
Mary Alvarez, of Sebring, have
decorated their six-foot
Christmas tree with more than
500 ornaments. Each one has a
special meaning and some are
more than 60 years old. State
Farm Insurance broker Jean
Cormier and her daughter Kelly
have been decorating the office
together for more than 20
years.This plea for Santa to stop
here is only a very small part of
the office's decorations. A home
at the corner of Lee Street and
Roanoke.Place has a huge vari-
ety of displays, lights and music.
The large two-story home at
1609 Crescent Drive is covered
with lights and decorations.
Some homeowners spend weeks
and even months decorating
their yards for motorists to
enjoy as they pass by.

Destination of risk

Though they had been at sea for three days and had not
eaten for four, they were the lucky ones.
The 25 Cubans found huddled on the beach of Beer
Can Island on Monday morning technically had "dry
feet" meaning that they had reached United States soil
and would not immediately be sent back to Cuba. Instead
they likely will qualify for expedited "legal permanent
resident" status and eventual U.S. citizenship.
Had police or the Coast Guard intercepted them before
they reached dry land, they doubtless would have been
given a meal and a fast ride back to Cuba, the fate that
awaits all who arrive with "wet feet" under the so-called
wet-foot, dry-foot policy toward Cuban refugees.
Or, they could simply have perished without a trace in
the Florida Straits, the sad end for unknown numbers of
desperate Cubans who flee Fidel Castro's oppression in
rickety boats and homemade rafts.
That these refugees landed on Florida's west coast
indicates they were brought by professional smugglers in
high-speed boats. Indeed, they told a Bradenton Herald
reporter that they paid roughly $2,000 each to make the
trip. Refugee landings in this area are rare, but not
unprecedented. Perhaps a looming scandal over shoddy
repair of Coast Guard vessels made the smuggling oper-
ation possible. The Coast Guard Commander in Key
West two weeks ago was forced to take eight of 10 cut-
ters out of action because of structural problems, leaving
key interdiction routes unpatrolled.
The landing on Beer Can Island on Monday serves
once again to highlight the porosity of U.S. borders, the
inconsistencies of U.S. immigration policy and the
absence of relations between the U.S. and Cuba. It serves
also to remind a critical world that, even as the United
States is reviled for its efforts to bring freedom to Iraqis,
it remains a destination that many risk their lives to
reach.

An editorial excerpt from The (Bradenton) Herald.


Tradition a word


for all seasons


Immediately upon hearing
the word "tradition," the song
from the play/movie, "Fiddler
on the Roof" comes to mind.
For the papa, tradition was the
answer to everything while
often solving nothing.
I'm not down on tradition -
especially at this time of year
when traditions abound in
every family. I'd just like to
examine it a little more closely.
When I think of the
Christmas traditions I grew up
with in my family, I remember
shopping for the best buy in a
Christmas tree. I can still feel
the cold air stinging my face as
the tree salesman pulled out
tree after tree shook it free
- and we all examined it. But,
it was my mom's eye that knew
when just the right one had
been found that also fit Dad's
wallet.
Large family gatherings
ended with 11 p.m.-midnight
Christmas Eve services and
heightened the anticipation of
waiting to open gifts on
Christmas morning. Then my
dad coaxed my brother and me
to run through the foyer into the
living room where presents
were stacked under the tree
while he recorded it on his
8mm movie camera.
We k6pt some of those tradi-
tions alive for as long as possi-
ble with our children. But, we
also added new ones that suited
our family in particular.
Tradition has a way of rooting
us and giving us something to
look forward to each year.
That favorite dish prepared
just like Grandma used to
make; a unique bread recipe
handed down from ancestors;
holiday decorations glittering
with sentiment. It's all good.
Unless it traps us into thinking
it's sacred.
Sometimes change intrudes
on tradition and we fight it
tooth and nail. Instead of tradi-
tion gently enfolding families it
becomes like some unwritten
law to be adhered to. Then
being strong-armed by tradi-
tion, family tensions rise.
Nostalgia is replaced by forced
smiles hiding stress. We can't
wait for the holidays and
accompanying expectations to
be over.
However, if we really wanted
to celebrate Christmas tradi-


REFLECTIONS

Jan Merop


tionally, we'd be visiting a cave
and sharing the barest necessi-
ties while accompanied by
cows, goats, donkeys and
sheep. I doubt Mary, Joseph,
Jesus and his brothers and sis-
ters repeated that first
Christmas experience every
year.
Leaving room for the sacred
may sometimes mean putting
aside traditions that may pull us
from the true meaning of that
first Christmas.
Mary and Joseph were not
home for the traditional Jewish
holidays. They even became
refugees as they traveled to
Egypt to flee King Herod's evil
slaughter of infant boys.
The Christmas story is one of
unveiled mystery and yet -
beyond our comprehension.
God becoming flesh and
dwelling among us as the
prophet foretold in Isaiah 7:14.
When we set up the nativity
and place Mary, Joseph, Baby
Jesus, the shepherds and sheep
in our scenes each year let's
remember the sacred tradition
of worshipful wonder that was
born that night.
Focus on the wonder of God
with us; this extraordinary gift
of Christmas. A love so pro-
found; and, yet, brought in sim-
plicity to ordinary people like
you and me.
Such a tradition grounds us
and frees us for every season of
life.

nist of the News-Sun. Her col-
umn, Pause and Consider, can

EDITORIALS/OPIN IONS


From typing news releases to entertaining staff


There are probably a lot of
you who have had an opportu-
nity to talk to the newsroom's
right hand person our news
clerk, Janelle Dennison.
If you call and can't find any-
one in the newsroom, you are
either lucky enough to get our
voice mail or if luck is really on
your side, you get to talk to
Janelle.
She is the one who has the
pleasure of typing all of the
copy submitted to us by our
readers, and she does a pretty
good job.
The other thing she does is
puts a smile on our face -
sometimes just when we need
it.
One never knows when
Janelle will break out in song
(Elvis is her favorite), tell a lit-
tle funny or come around to
remind me how many days I
have left to get my Christmas
shopping done. This year all of
her reminders, which started the
first part of January, have done
no good. I'm still not ready and
at this point, I'm in trouble.
Anyway, Janelle sent me this
rewrites of Christmas songs. I


Jesus is reason

for season

Editor:
And so, as this "holiday sea-
son" is upon us again, we are
already seeing the usual objec-
tions to nativity scenes and ref-
erences to Christ. Pardon me,
but try as you might, you sim-
ply cannot take Christ out of
Christmas.
His most holy name defines
the day. The birth of the savior
is the only reason that day
exists.
I find the Christmas specials
- even the good ones, teaching
the lessons of Christ, the prop-
er treatment of others and acts
of charity only to sputter at
the end and say something like
"this is the true meaning of
Christmas, friends and togeth-
erness" and so to this I reply
"Bah humbug."
The world just cannot come
out and say it, but the birth of
the holy baby Jesus is the real
reason why people travel hin-
der and yon and by all means
possible, and even through
every imaginable inconven-
ience, to get home to be with
loved ones who are special to
them.
If being together is what
Christmas means, then the
Fourth of July would be as
important. But, it is not. This is
the holy season of Christmas,
pure and simple.
This is a free country. If you
do not believe in Christ, you
are free to keep it secular.
However I will say don't you
dare infringe on my right to
celebrate it as a day that my
savior was born bearing the
greatest gift of all, eternal life.
We are all free to celebrate as
we wish.
But. for the celebration of
Christmas, let's call it what it is
and not hide behind a wall of
political blandness.
Again, may I remind you this
is the U.S.A., home of the free,
because of the brave. God, guts
and guns have set us free, so
any communist who tries to tell
me I should not put up a nativ-
ity manger scene in my front
yard, you just take a walk and
keep walking. The path to try to
dismantle it will be over my
dead body. I have fought and
there are many other true
Americans fighting to preserve
and keep this country safe and
free. My hat goes off to them.
If we are true and faithful
Americans, we should show
our grateful appreciation and
gratitude and support them,
pray for them and pray for
peace in this world, which is
now in such trouble and straits.
Christmas Day is celebrated
for one reason and one reason
only: His name is Jesus.
I am wishing unto you and
yours all the truest joys of
Christmas and best of wishes
into the new year of 2007-
Anno Domini.
I wish you all less hurry and
more peace peace on earth,
good will to man.

Why deny the

Holocaust?
Editor:
There is something terribly
confusing about Iran's pen-
chant for denying the
Holocaust. Given Iranian
President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad's stated desire to
see Israel wiped off the map, it
would seem more reasonable
for Iran to be celebrating the
Holocaust than denying it.
By denying the Holocaust
Ahmadinejad turns the Nazis
into victims and so provides a
space for them to express them-
selves after a 60-year silence.
Indeed, in Germany neo-
Nazism is a flourishing politi-
cal and social force that proud-
ly parades its links to Iran.
He is also setting up the con-
ditions for the annihilation of
Israel for the international Left
(political views of men and
women who want to reform the
established order) by present-
ing Israel's existence as a direct
result of the Holocaust. As
Iran's foreign minister,
Manoucher Mottaki said a few
weeks ago, "If the official ver-
sion of the Holocaust is thrown
into doubt, then the identity and
nature of Israel will be thrown
into doubt."
In short, Iran views
Holocaust denial as a strategic
propaganda tool. By down-
grading the Holocaust, Iran
mobilizes supporters and para-
lyzes potential opponents. Its
presentation of the Holocaust
as a myth used to exploit
Muslims wins its support by
the international Left, which
increasingly views Israel as an
illegitimate state. So by deny-
ing the Holocaust, Iran raises
its leadership profile both
regionally and globally.
Indeed, even if the Left does-
n't buy into the Holocaust


denial, it can still agree with
Iran's conclusion that Israel has
no right to exist. As Mottaki
explained, "If it is proved that
the Holocaust was a historical
reality, then what is the reason
for the Muslim people of the
region and the Palestinians
having to pay the cost of the
Nazis' crimes?"
So from Mottaki's perspec-
tive, Israel is illegitimate
whether the Holocaust hap-
pened or not. In making this
point, Mottaki closed the gap
between Iran and a loud chorus
of voices in both Europe and
the United States who claim
that Israel was established only
because of European guilt over
the Holocaust and consequent-
ly the Jewish state has no inher-
ent legitimacy.
Inevitably, those who hold
this view come to believe that
Israel has no right to defend
itself. After all, if Israel is but
an illegal European colony on
stolen Arab lands, then any act
of self-defense that Israel takes
is by definition an act of
aggression. So from this per-
spective, all Israel can do is
give away land and accept that
it must pay for all the abnor-
malities of structure and func-
tions of the Arab world.
The view that every problem
in the region is somehow or
other bound up in Israel's stub-
born refusal to disappear is
clearly reflected also in the pol-
icy prescriptions of the Baker-
Hamilton Iraq Study Group,
and in former president Jimmy
Carter's anti-Semitic attacks
against Israel.
And so, by framing its
Holocaust denial around an
interpretation of the Arab
world's war against Israel set
forth by radical leftists and for-
eign policy, the Iranians enable
them to find a comfort level
with what Iran is doing today.
This comfort was displayed by


the new U.S. Defense Secretary
Robert Gates in his Senate con-
firmation hearing where he jus-
tified Iran's nuclear Weapons
program by claiming that it was
a deterrent measure in response
to the fact that Pakistan,
Russia, the U.S. and Israel all
have nuclear weapons. Gates,
of course, served on the Baker-
Hamilton commission and no
doubt supports its recommen-
dation that Israel be forced to
give the Golan Heights to Syria
and Judea, Samaria and
Jerusalem to Hamas.
Not only does Iran's
Holocaust denial attract poten-
tial supporters, it also confuses
and so neutralizes potential
opponents who neither like nor
dislike Jews and are too con-
fused to understand the threat
Iran poses to the U.S.
Although it has not for a
moment stopped its calls of
"Death to America," Iran's
vision of a world without
America or its threats to attack
Europe, Iran has made Israel
the focus of its propaganda. In
so doing it has provided cover
for the men who claim that the
war is really just between Israel
and the Muslims and that the
only reason that the U.S. finds
itself caught in the middle is
because of its support for
Israel. That support, in turn, is
the result of Jewish subversion
of Washington through the so-
called all powerful "Israel
lobby," which Carter claims, as
he sells his latest book.
This view, now emerging
into the mainstream political
debate in the U.S., has already
won the debate in most of
Europe. There, the view is that
European Muslims are only
attacking their non-Muslim
countrymen because states like
the U.S. and Micronesia have
yet to abandon Israel.

going in and out of the United
States and the European Union
nations looking for someone,
anyone, even the Pope of
Rome, to help them acquire a
peaceful agreement with their
Arab neighbors.
God states that Israel will
find the Anti-Christ who will
confirm a treaty with them.
Now God says that the Anti-
Christ will confirm a treaty, I
see this as a treaty that already
exists, but is not implemented.
There is a treaty that already
exists, but is not confirmed and
that is the "Treaty of Peace
Between The State of Israel and
The Hashemite Kingdom Of
Jordan" written on Oct. 26,
1994, and witnessed by
President Bill Clinton.
Just a little FYI, The
Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan
also rules over the Temple
Mount. If you would like to
read this document just Google
it on your computer and stack
your printer with at least 45
pieces of paper.
The fulfillment of God's
most amazing prophecies con-
cerning Russia and the Arab
nations seems more imminent
than ever before. In Ezekial 38
and 39 we read that a madman
called Gog will be the end-time
leader of Russia and will lead
the Arab nations of Meshech,
Tubal, Gomer, and Togarmah
(Turkey and Central Asia);
Magog (Islamic southern
republics of the former Soviet
Union); Persia (Iran); Ethiopia
or Cush (Sudan); and Libya
will come against Israel.
Some of the alliances
between Russia and these Arab

Presidential

perspective

Editor:
The latest report from the
White House is that President
Bush will not make his "new"
plans for Iraq public until after
the first of the year. Whether
this is due to his weighing all
the evidence before deciding or
seeking to engage the new
Democratic congress in his cul-
pability is unclear.
What is clear is that his
attention is now focused on
raising one half of a billion dol-
lars for his presidential library.
This is more than any other
presidential library has ever
cost, but then Bush has spent
more money than any other
president, so one can make an
argument for proportionality.
Still, it seems ironic that a pres-
ident who proudly claims not to
read would need such a grand
edifice as a monument. Perhaps
it will house all of his "signing
statements" where he gave acts
of Congress a closet veto by
recording his unwillingness to
follow the law.
Apparently some of the
funds will be used to establish
an "Institute for Democracy,"
an Orwellian conclave, which
will write papers and books
favorable to Bush's policies
Doublethink Redoubled, per-
haps they will call it the House
of Hubris.

Exotics should

not be pets

Editor:
After reading the headlines,
it's surprising that anyone con-
tinues to buy, sell or keep exot-
ic and dangerous animals as
"pets." People all over the
country have been seriously


injured some fatally by
their pet vipers, pythons, and
alligators. Just last week, an
Ohio man made the news when
he was strangled to death by his
14-foot-long boa constritor.
These animals are often
bought on a whim and are as
quickly disposed of when their
specialized needs become bur-
densome. Snakes, iguanas and
other animals who have
become "inconvenient" are
tossed out like trash; many lan-
guish in fear, hunger and thirst
before dying or being killed.
Others wreak havoc on local
ecosystems: Officials say that
Burmese pythons, released in
Florida's Everglades by owners
who no longer wanted them,
are putting native animals at
risk.
Please, for your sake and
theirs, don't succumb to the
temptation of purchasing exotic
animals. Our nation's animal
shelters are filled to the brim
with millions of dogs and cats
who are dying for a good home.

Impact fees taken effect Jan. 1


* Second in a
three-part series.
Last week I cov-
ered four com-
monly asked ques-


tions about impact
fees. This week I
have added a few more ques-
tions and answers in an effort to
clarify this whole impact fee
issue.
As I stated in the last article,
impact fees are a major part of
local government infrastructure
financing. They have done
much to change our approach to
paying for public facilities.
There are all sorts of impact
fees and they are used for a
variety of purposes such as
roads, parks, schools, fire
departments, police depart-
ments and libraries.
Listed below are some of the
most commonly asked ques-
tions in Highlands County
regarding impact fees. Next
week I will have more ques-
tions and answers and will
include sheets on fees, which
may help you to figure out how
much these costs are for differ-
ent types of construction.


Can the impact
fees be paid over
time instead of all
at once?


Yes. A develop-
er or business
would have a maximum time-
frame and the payment must be
secured to protect the county by
either a lien against property or
a security instrument.
Are mobile homes subject
to impact fees?
It depends on the size of the
mobile home. If it fits the cate-
gory, (square footage) it is con-
sidered a single family
dwelling. If it will be located in
an recreation vehicle park, no
impact fees will be charged if
the RV park is grandfathered by
the zoning code.
When will impact fees take
effect and will I be charged if
I do not have a permit before
they do take effect?
Impact fees in Highlands
County will take effect Jan. 1.
If the completed application for
the permit is submitted, in its
entirety, before Jan. 1, and if the
applicant picks up the approved
permit by Feb. 28, 2007, no

Are impact fees charged on

In residential, actual living
space, no garages, carports,

livable space is subject to
impact fee charges.
On commercial, all square
footage is subject to impact
fees.

I hope this information helps
to clarify this confusing issue.
Additionally, we have added a
new link to our Web site at
www.hcbcc.net "Calculate

lifestyle


A wonderful

experience
Volunteering for service
to others has been a big part
of my adult life. One holi-
day stands out in my mem-
ories of helping others.
While I lived in Tampa, I
again became an active
member of a Beta Sigma
Phi chapter. Beta Sigma Phi
is a social sorority that
means it's not connected
with a college, but has a
purpose of providing
women with cultural, serv-
ice and educational oppor-
tunities to share with other
women around the world.
Beta Sigma Phi is the
largest women's organiza-
tion of its kind in the world
(www.betasigmaphi.org/ind
ex.shtm).
Our chapter did many
fundraising activities
throughout the year, such as
garage sales, craft and art
shows, or flower sales. One
year, we decided to expand
our repertoire and partici-
pate in the Toys for Tots
drive in Tampa. The Postal
Service would collect toys
curbside on specific days or
people could drop off their
donations in person.
Members of the sorority
and others signed on for
specific shifts to sort the
toys. The Marines at their
Reserve Center offered their
facility to store, sort and
distribute the collected toys.
When we got to the facility,
we entered a gymnasium
that was approximately
twice the size of a school
gymnasium. Toys were
piled as high as could be
throughout the room. Our
job, as volunteers, was to
sort the toys into ages and
gender.
We then signed up to
work shifts of toy distribu-
tion. Approximately 50 of
Sus worked in teams of two.
One of us would take orders
that included the age and
sex of the child and what he
or she wanted, such as a
doll or action figure, a puz-
zle book or crayons. Then,
our partner would go to the
gymnasium floor, sort
through the mountains of
toys, and pick out just the
right gifts for the children
(www.dynamiccreations.
com/toysfortots/).
For many years now, a
local church has provided
stuffed animals to The
Salvation Army,
Department of Children and
Family Services, and local
hospitals. The critters are
collected from October
through December, taking
up residence in the churches
sanctuary. Every week, con-
gregants increase the num-
ber of toys to be found in
the seats. During services,
the creatures are blessed
and loved. In December, the
animals are distributed to
the above organizations to
be given to children who
are in difficult situations or
may not otherwise receive a
holiday gift.
It is so easy to make a
difference in a child's life.
If you are interested in con-
tributing to such a program,
contact the above organiza-
tions for further informa-
tion. They are listed in the
telephone book.

A


Pioneer home

transformed into

family's dream
By PATRICIA C. POND
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID
his year, Dusty and
Roxanne Young will be
celebrating Christmas in a
house that is both brand
new and centuries old. Situated on 21
acres of rolling grasslands in a peaceful
rural setting, the house is a faithful
replica of homes built by Central
Florida's early settlers in the 1860s.
The Youngs have always been
attracted to the simple wooden houses
built by Florida's early pioneers, called
"crackers." The term "cracker" is
believed to have its origin in the sounds
of the whip that ranchers cracked over
the cattle they herded.
Over the years, "cracker" has been
expanded to include later families who
settled in the towns and villages during
the early 20th century, built their own
homes and lived a self-sufficient life.
The Young family is part of this group,
and Dusty is a fourth-generation son of
an early Sebring family.
"My great-grandparents built their
home on Lake Jackson on what is now
the vacant lot next to the Sebring Public
Library. My grandparents built the two-
story house that is now the Twin Oaks
Tearoom in downtown Sebring," he
said.
In 1965, Dusty Young's father bought
130 acres west of Lake Placid from a
member of the pioneer Skipper family.
This is where Dusty grew up, riding
horses and working cattle since he was
a teenager. From the time he was 13
years old, Dusty would take off alone
into the surrounding woods on his
favorite horse.
"I'd spend all weekend out there by
myself, riding, hunting and camping.
The horse was so well trained that if I
got too tired to ride back, I'd just lie
face down in my saddle, with my head
on the horse's back, and he would bring
me home."
Roxanne was raised in Davie, west of
the Fort Lauderdale area. Davie is
known for its rural character and eques-
trian lifestyle, so she, too, grew up with
family-owned horses.
"I have been riding all my life, both
for pleasure and competition. I started
competing in rodeos when I was about


10 years old, we used to go almost
every weekend. We always showed
horses, in western pleasure and halters.
And we loved barrel racing we
belonged to organizations that were
only for barrel racing."
The Youngs currently own 10 horses,
but most of their riding is for pleasure
these days. They are often joined by
Dusty's two grown daughters, Katelyn
and Crystal, who are excellent riders.
Roxanne's son Kevin attends South
Florida Community College and lives
with his father in Avon Park.
"Dusty did competitive roping for
many years, but not any longer,"
Roxanne said. "He is so busy with the
business that he does not compete any
more."
Dusty is self-employed, building
barns and fences for area ranchers and
property owners. Roxanne is office
manager for the Lake Forest Veterinary
Clinic in Avon Park, where she has
worked for 22 years. The couple met in
1990 when Dusty brought his dog to
the vet. When the conversation turned
to horses and they realized how much
they had in common, the friendship
grew into love and then marriage, the
second for both.

Looking for a dream
They lived in Avon Park for 14 years,
where Roxanne had a home and pasture
for her horses. But they dreamed of
building their own home in a-rural area
near Du.sy's family ranch. In 2005,
they purchased 21 acres from Dusty's
father, and put the Avon Park house up
for sale.
"We always wanted to build a wood
home, and we both wanted a breezeway
in the middle," Roxanne explained.
"We had seen the old Parnell house in
Highlands Hammock, and that became
the inspiration for this house."
The Parnell house is a style called
the "dog-trot" which is considered the
classic example of Florida Cracker
architecture. These one-story houses
consisted of two equal size rooms sepa-
rated by an open hall or covered breeze-
way. The family dogs typically ate and
slept in the breezeway. The dog-trot and
other cracker houses usually featured a
steeply pitched gable roof with large
overhangs and porches running the
length of the house. Fireplaces were
built in the gable ends.
After much discussion, the Youngs
sat down one evening and began to
design their own.dog-trot house.
"I made many sketches of what we
wanted in the house, working out.all the


Photos by PATRICIA C. POND/News-Sun
Roxanne Young sets a festive table in preparation for a holiday dinner in her new
cracker-style home. The antler chandelier is one of the many decorative items she col-
lected while the house was still in the planning phase.


Dusty Young sits on the four poster bed he made, using reclaimed timber from an old
barn. The two spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms are located in the second unit of
the dog-trot house. Furnishing are a mix of family heirlooms, modern purchases and
hand crafted collectibles;


details," Dusty remembers. Then they
took the drawings to architect Earl
Hardy, who developed the final build-
ing plans.
They sold their house in Avon Park,
and began the daunting task of moving
everything, literally, lock, stock (10
horses, five dogs, six cats) and barrels.
"Dusty first built our work barn so


we could pack everything from the
house and store it in the barn. Then he
built the horse barn so we could move
the horses. Finally, we moved into a
guest house on the property while we
built the new house," Roxanne said.

Dusty's daughter, is living with the couple
Roxanne and Dusty Young at the front entrance of their new home near Lake Placid. The house was designed to replicate the 'dog- while she attends South Florida

DIVERSIONS



Father and son duo make 'The


Pursuit of Happyness a big hit


For those who don't know,
yes, the word "happiness" is
intentionally misspelled in the
title.
Anyone with a sharp eye,
including my irritatingly
pompous spell-check on my
computer, is quick to point this
out.
Like the symbolism in the
film, my Macintosh pursues the
non-existent word to no avail
when I repeatedly command it
to ignore "happyness." For the
characters in "The Pursuit of
Happyness," it is an elusive and
maybe even imaginary state
pointed out by founding father
Thomas Jefferson in the
Declaration of Independence.
"Pursuit" is a true story based
on the narrator and protagonist
Chris Gardner (Will Smith), a
smart and hard-working yet
unlucky salesman who rumi-
nates on the idea throughout the
film. Chris marvels at the fact
that Jefferson was wise enough
to qualify the "pursuit" of hap-
piness, not happiness itself, in
the list of self-evident truths.
As much as his frustrating
occupation as a salesman of
high-density bone-scanners
defines his character, Chris is
always more emotionally teth-
ered to his role as a father. His
son Christopher is played by
Smith's real son, Jaden, and the
spelling gaff is explained early
in the film when Chris deposits
his son at the inner-city day-
care center. The doors of the
center display a cartoonish
mural with the erroneous "y" as
well as some other colorful lan-
guage and graffiti.
It seems as though an actual
father and child duo should be
naturally convincing duplicat-
ing the relationship on screen,
but the scenario is fairly rare.
The standard is the 1973 classic

saccharin sweet.
Smith plays the driven sales-
man with an understated hon-
esty, a change of pace for the
rapper-turned-actor who seems
to emanate perpetual "cool."
He's usually known to us as
quick-witted and smooth in
movies like "Men In Black,"
"Bad Boys," and even "Ali." In
"Pursuit" his struggles are so
profound and confidence-shak-
ing that he demands to be
cheered-on.
The story is set in early '80s
San Francisco, where the
Gardner family is barely getting
by financially. Chris tries
valiantly to make a living hock-
ing obscure medical devices
with middling success, but
when he catches wind of an
unpaid internship at Dean
Witter with the hope of an even-
tual full-time job at the invest-
ment firm, his focus shifts. His
increasingly pessimistic wife
Linda (Thandie Newton) is
effectively despicable in her
lack of support and apathy, and
when she leaves for New York,
the devoted father is forced to
get by as a single parent.
Chris and Christopher follow
a downward spiral that takes
them through an apartment
eviction, residency at a motel
and eventually a homeless shel-
ter Rock-bottom is seemrinl 1
hit at several points, only to be:


out done by the next chapter.
"The Pursuit, of Happyness"
has a tumultuous, one-thing-
after-another rhythm to it. The
ending is as predictable as any
"based on a true story" film.
After all, why would this story
be worth telling unless there is
triumph to counterbalance the
tragedy?
But it is moving because it
invites the viewer to join the
duo in their quest to achieve
and conquer. With every infuri-
ating episode, the odds mount
yet so does the sense of hope.
There's a feeling that if we can
just get beyond the next hurdle,
if we can just weather the
storm, things will be all right.
Will Smith carries the film
with heartwarming sincerity,
but it is the added strength of
his-son holding his hand that
allows him to do so.

The Christmas Version shares love during holiday season


If I decorate my house per-
fectly with plaid bows, strands
of twinkling lights and shiny
balls, but do not show love to
my family, I'm just another dec-
orator. If I slave away in the
kitchen, baking dozens of
Christmas cookies, preparing
gourmet meals and arranging a
beautifully adorned table at
mealtime, but do not show love
to my family, I'm just another
cook.
If I work at the soup kitchen,
carol in the nursing home and
give all that I have to charity,
but do not show love to my
family, it profits me nothing. If
I trim the spruce with shimmer-


ing angels and cro- china and table
cheted snowflakes, linens. Love doesn't

Faith Missionary
Baptist Church
SEBRING Christmas
Sunday is going to be interest-
ing and special at the church.
First members will have the
Deaf Ministry signing "Silent
Night" for the congregation.
This is a first for them and a
first for the congregation. It is
their "love gift" to Jesus and to
the congregation. The Deaf
Choir consists of Ernesto and
Milagros Ayala, Justo and Lydia
Ayala, Phillip Rodery and
Brenda Linsinbigler.
Secondly, the church will be
launching a new ministry: a
Spontaneous Choir. This means
that every Sunday whomever
wants to sing in the choir can


come up and members will be
singing a familiar song, unre-
hearsed. This Sunday, the
debut, will be a mini cantata
that members used when; they
went Christmas caroling. It lasts
about eight minutes. It is com-
prised of familiar Christmas
carols with narration of "Twas
the Night before Jesus Came."
The audience is one anyway, for
they sing to the Lord. Members
think this will be fun and a way
that the small, but growing,
church can enjoy a choir until
the Lord brings more people
and leadership. The church will
do the best it can and this has
potential to be a lot of fun as
well as an opportunity for any-
one to musically worship and
give praise to the Lord.
The church will meet togeth-
er at 10 a.m. for Sunday school.
There are three classes adult,
children and deaf.
Worship service is at 11 a.m.
This is interpreted for the deaf.
Everyone will gather at 6
p.m. for the last 2006 Birthday
Tribute to the Lord and Savior,
Jesus Christ.


The concert of praise with
Rev Russ and Sharon Lind, of
Jacksonville, will be Sunday,
Dec. 31.

plan which flows from a cedar-
paneled living room through a
dining area set to one side, and
into the kitchen, which is sepa-
rated by a granite-topped serv-
ing bar. While it is all one big
room, the different wall cover-
ings and furniture placement
subtly define each area's func-
tion.
Across the breezeway, the
second section has been divid-
ed into a master suite and a
large guest bedroom. Although
the Youngs' modern house
faithfully recreated the dog-trot
design, the two units are much
larger than the original pioneer
version.
In the master suite, the
Youngs pulled out all the stops
to recreate the feeling of an old
pioneer house. Dusty built a
four-poster bed from timber
salvaged from an old cow barn
on the property. Antique wood
furniture is plain and servicea-
ble and the stained and beaten
floors look like they have been
there for a century. The real
reindeer skin over the foot-
board might seem like a luxury
today, but not so in the drafty,
leaky cabins of the 1800s.
Early pioneers often relied on
animal skins to keep warm in
winter because their cabins


were not insulated.
Unlike the original cracker
houses, the Youngs' home is
very well insulated.
"I put a lot of extra insula-
tion on the roof and throughout
the walls of the house, so we
don't have to use a lot of AC,"
Dusty pointed out. Fireplaces
provide heat.
"And there is always a
breeze moving through the
breezeway and across the
rooms," Roxanne added.
The Youngs' house has been
designed and furnished to be a
comfortable haven for all
members of this busy family. A
mixture of family heirlooms,
collectibles and little treasures
combine artfully with modern
furniture and appliances to cre-
ate a home that is relaxed and
welcoming for family and
friends. The holiday decora-
tions combine old and new,
with a country theme, but it's


country with class.
"I have been collecting
things for this house for more
than five years," Roxanne con-
fessed. "I would lie awake at
night and think about how I
would decorate it. By the time
we started building, I knew
where everything would go
before we even moved in."
Roxanne Young also realizes
that this house has changed her
priorities and refocused her
life.
"So many people warned us
that this would be a terrible
experience. But we had a good
time building the house. I
come home and look around
and think 'I can't believe we
did this ourselves.' It was a
nice experience."
Then she added, "I used to
eat, sleep and breathe horses.
Now this house has brought
me back to home and family.


Roxanne Young serves her husband Dusty a cup of coffee at the counter that separates the kitchen from
the living area in one side of their dog-trot house. Dusty did all of the construction himself, with the
exception of the fireplace and kitchen cabinets.


Even hunting trophies are decked out for the holidays at the Youngs' Roxanne Young draws a bath in a tub made from a horse trough, which actually works, although with
home. Dusty is a fourth-generation son of an early Sebring family, modern plumbing. The red pump is only decorative. There is a full-size shower on the other side of the
and grew up riding horses, working cattle and hunting. bathroom, which Dusty says is a much better fit for him. The home has three bathrooms.

Lee will read the Scripture John 1:1-5. Then, a child

of the light and warmth Joseph and Mary found in the

guided the wisemen to Jesus."

God's

By RON KINCADE
Special to the News-Sun
The Scriptures tell us God
visited the Nations looking for a
righteous man. Abraham was
God's choice because he was
righteous. There were no Jews
or Gentiles, only Nations. In
Genesis 15: 18 says on that day
the Lord made a covenant with
Abraham and said, "To your
descendants I give this land,
from the river of Egypt to the
great river, Euphrates."
Genesis 17: 7 says "I will estab-
lish my covenant as an ever
lasting covenant, between me
and you and your descendants
after you for the generations to
come, to be your God and the
God of your descendants after
you." This is an unconditional
covenant, and it is everlasting.
From Abraham came Isaac;
from Isaac, Jacob. God changed
Jacob's name to Israel, his


chosen

descendants were called
Israelites. His son Judah, was
head of the tribe of Judah thus
the term "Jews."
Jesus came to the lost sheep
of Israel. Jesus preached to the
Jews and told his disciples, do
not go among or enter any town
of the Samaritans. Paul was
commissioned by our Risen
Lord to preach to the Gentiles.
Daniel's prophecy says 9:
24 "70 sevens are decreed, for
your people and your holy city
to finish transgressions, to put
an end to sin, to atone for
wickedness, to bring in ever-
lasting righteousness, to Seal up
vision and prophecy, and to
anoint the most holy." Daniel
9: 25 says "know and under-
stand this" from the issuing
of the Decree to restore and
rebuild Jerusalem, until the
anointed one, the ruler, (Jesus)
comes there will be 7-sevens


people

and 62 sevens. That is 49 plus
434 or 483 years. The decree
was issued in 457 B.C. Ezra 7:7
forward 483 years to 27 A.D.,
the year Jesus was anointed at
his baptism, Mark 1: 9. But the
scriptures tell us they did not
have their house in order and
Matthew 21: 43 says therefore
I tell you that the kingdom of
God will be taken away from
you and given to a people who
will produce its fruit.(That
would be the Christians.) So
now the Christians have
become Gods chosen people.
Galatians 3: 29 says, If you
belong to Christ, then you are
Abraham seed, and heirs
according to promise, Romans
11: 19 says "branches were
broken off so that I could be
grafted in," but don't forget the
root is the Lord. Israel was
grafted in, we are the branch
and one day they will be grafted

Children entertain at women's Silver Tea


. LAKE PLACID The Lake Placid Associate
Reformed Presbyterian Church Women's
Ministries Silver Tea was the occasion for a per-
formance of the Children's Choir.
Led by choirmaster Sara Cameron, the group
sang a multitude of lively Christmas songs.
Accompanied by appropriate movements, the
songs brought the joy of Christmas to the assem-
bled ladies. The Rev. Raymond Cameron read the
poem "T'was the Night Before Christmas" as
the children listened with rapt attention. To the
older guests, the familiar poem brought back
fond memories of reading the work to their chil-
dren and many could repeat the words silently as
the pastor read them. But for the children, most
had not heard the magical story before and they
were fascinated.


A tea followed the program, Pam Severance
and Margaret Kiser poured tea and coffee.
Sydney Stewart, recently chosen as Miss Lake
Placid, served punch wearing her official tiara.
Cookies were the featured dessert. As is the cus-
tom, each lady present brought two dozen cook-
ies. After the tea, the cookies were placed in "to-
go" boxes. painted by the Sunbeam children of
the church. The boxes were delivered to shut-ins
the next afternoon by the Explorer children's
group. Gifts for residents of the local nursing
homes were also part of the program of the day.
The unwrapped gifts were later wrapped by the
Explorer children and delivered to the Lake
Placid Health Care Center and Rosewood Care
Center. In addition, a donation was received for
the Medical Missions of the denomination.

1708 LaGrange Ave, will host
its last Concert of Praise for
2006 with the Rev. Russ and
Sharon Lind performing at 11

Pastor Ken and Bonnie
Lambert at the church have
known this couple, and their
now adult children, for many
years when they lived in
Michigan. The Linds now

They have watched each other
go through some hard times and
yet continue to trust God and
grow in faith. The Lamberts are
honored to have them here in
Sebring. Everyone is invited to
come and praise the Lord with
the church as Russ and Sharon
Lind share in word and music.
The Linds carry an active
schedule which takes them
throughout this wonderful
country singing the praises of
the Lord, and preaching the
Word of God when the opportu-
nity arises.
Their music will bless,
encourage and point everyone
to Jesus, the One who can meet
all of their needs. The public is
eagerly invited to come share in
this special concert with the
-Linds.
This concert will be inter-
preted for the deaf.

History Lesson
15 Years Ago
Dec. 22, 1991: Guard
Thad Leveridge was perfect
from the free-throw line in
the fourth quarter as
Sebring defeated Lake
Placid 62-47 to advance to
the finals of the Lake Placid
Holiday Basketball
Tournament. Sebring had
burned the nets the previ-
ous night in a 103-71 win
over a team from Banks,
Ore., with forward Brian
Wigham scoring a game-
high 30 points. The Streaks
would go on to win the
tournament over a stub-
born Lake Wales team 71-
63 in the championship.
Wigham scored 24 points
in that game.

Devils fail to communicate in loss


Beaten by West Oaks in

Tracy McGrady Shootout
By MARCUS WILKINS
Sports Writer
AUBURNDALE Communicating commu-
nication.
It may seem redundant to some, but for Avon
Park coach Eric Zwayer, it's his prime directive.
After the Red Devils fell behind and eventual-
ly lost 61-38 to West Oaks Academy of Orlando
Thursday in the Tracy McGrady Christmas
Shootout, Zwayer tried to drive the message
home to the starters and reserves.
"We're playing against ourselves!" yelled
coach Zwayer after a late timeout.
An up-tempo but low-scoring first quarter
seemed to suit the Red Devils' playing style in
the early going. Steals, turnovers and fast-break
buckets gave Avon Park an 11-8 lead through one
period. The Flames were careless with the bas-
ketball and even lost track of the clock as time
expired when the point guard was casually drib-
bling while his teammates on the bench screamed


for him to take a shot.
Once West Oaks began to execute its half-
court offense in the second quarter, however, it
began to pull away.
The Devils had difficulty adjusting and the
Flames used an offensive rebounding advantage,
along with sporadic 3-point shooting, to pull
away to a 32-23 lead at the half.
The game got completely away from the
Devils in the third quarter. Kaneef Caldwell
West Oaks drove the lane effectively at times
S1 and hit one of only three 3-pointers
for Avon Park in the fourth quarter.
It was the defensive end where
Avon Pak the lack of communication cost the
8 Devils. As the game wore on, Avon
SPark's energy level dwindled and
the defense couldn't keep up with
the Flames' ball movement.
"We're not talking to each other on defense,"
said Zwayer. "We're giving up easy shots
because we've got two guys guarding one guy,
and that's lack of communication. Offensively,
we're not in the right spots because of lack of

Gary Rapp talks to his junior varsity football players following their 21st-straight win in 2003.


Sebring'


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun


Rapp ending 35-year


-career with Blue Streaks today


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING
The definition of the word
'coach' that you will find in any
dictionary really doesn't do the
word justice.
Coaches are more than just the guy
calling the shots on the sideline or in the
dugout. A real coach has to be a teacher,
a father figure, a bus driver, a maid, the
stern hand of discipline and have a soft
shoulder to cry on every once in a while.
For the past 35 years, Gary Rapp has
been all that and more at Sebring High
School. And even'though he will retire
today, he will always be 'Coach' to most
of the people he's crossed paths with
over those years.
Saturday night, Rapp's friends and
family (along with anybody else who
feels like dropping by) will gather at the
Highlands County Fairgrounds for a cele-
bration of Rapp's career in the form of a
roast.
"You always have mixed emotions
about something like this," said Rapp,
who was head baseball coach at Sebring
from 1972-82 and has was involved in
the football program in one capacity or
another almost every year he was at the
.school. "I'm really looking forward to
Saturday and seeing some of the young
men and women who were a part of my


'My championships
are the young people
that have gone out and
made themselves and
their country proud.'
GARY RAPP

life the last 35 years. It should be a
hoot."
If all of the people Rapp had an influ-
ence on in his third-of-a-century-plus
career were coming to that roast, there
wouldn't be a venue in the county big
enough. Rapp figures he's worked with
around 40,000 students in his tenure.
Among that throng are people who
have ended up, as Rapp puts it, "from the
Pentagon to the penitentiary and every-
thing in between."
While Rapp has coached a player who
made it to the Super Bowl (Ronnie
Lippett) and the World Series (Gabe
White), it's the average athlete and stu-
dent that becomes a productive member
of society that ultimately is the most
rewarding.
"You don't see what the finished prod-
uct is until years later," Rapp said. "It's


not a process where you can turn on the
TV and look at the stock market and
there it is in black and white. Sometimes
it takes young people a while to go in the
right direction.
"Some kids just stay on your mind for-
ever, and those kids you remember for
not necessarily their athletic ability, but
how they approached life and overcame
some of their pitfalls."
Rapp said he's pretty much mapped
out what he's going to be doing with all
of his free time, and that doesn't neces-
sarily include a lot of trips to watch his
former team play.
Rapp is a member of the Florida
Athletic Coaches Association Hall of
Fame as well as the University of Tampa
Hall of Fame due to his football accom-
plishments there after graduating from
Sebring in 1964. He's been successful as
both a player and a coach his entire
career.
But championships won on the field
aren't the ones that mean the most to
him.
"I don't thinkfyou'll ever mistake me
for a guy that has four World Series rings
or has won 400 games. What I hope my
legacy will be is that I helped young peo-
ple be the best that they could be," he
said. "I think my forte was getting the
average kids to play above average and

Kaneef Caldwell of Avon Park drives into the lane Thursday against
West Oaks.

communication."
- It's something the Devils
have tried to address in prac-
tice, but have struggled to exe-
S cute in game play.
"They love talking to each
other, but it seems like in the
game they forget it," added
Zwayer. "It's a combination of
things. I think when they're in a

the above average kids to play
at a much higher level.
"My championships are the
young people that have gone
out and made themselves and
their country proud."
Rapp recently received a let-
ter from a former student he
had in 1974, a man who has
been in prison for 22 years.
The man congratulated Rapp
on his retirement and said how
much Rapp meant to him.
"He said he didn't do the
right thing, but he hopes one
day to be able to look me in
the eye and hug me," Rapp
said.
That alone would make
Rapp look back on his career
with pride, but there's so much
more.
Two of those thousands of
athletes that Rapp coach were
his sons, Travis and Brian.
Brian has followed into his
father's footsteps and is now
coaching at Sebring.
"That was a rewarding expe-
rience," he said. "There's noth-
ing like coaching your own
sons. I probably was a little bit
harder on them than I was on


game they have spectators and
they want to shine a little bit for
their friends and family. It's
also that they may not know
(the game plan) as well as they
let on in practice and they lose
focus.
"We'll work on it in practice
and hopefully we'll do a better
job in January."
Avon Park plays Miami
Jackson today at 1:30 p.m. in
the second round of the tourney.


'I still see him all
the time, and he's
still 'Coach. 'I'm
scared he 'll kick
my butt if I don't
call him 'Coach.
After 35 years,
he's still 'Coach,'
and he always
will be.'
CHARLIE HANSEN

other kids, but that's just a nat-
ural thing because you want to
make sure to show the other
kids you're not showing
favoritism.
"Only coaches can under-
stand how difficult it is to be a
coach's son. They have to
make the distinction between
'Coach Rapp' and 'Dad."'
Rapp said Brian will be tak-
ing over his duties with the
FACA All-Star baseball series
held each year in Sebring and,
ultimately, will be taking his


place in the annals of Blue
Streak history, too.
"I can tell you this, he'll be
a better coach than I was," he
said.
While Travis and Brian were
the only two athletes who
could call Rapp 'Dad,' he was
a fatherly influence to count-
less others during his career.
One of those was Charlie
Hansen, who was one of
Rapp's first baseball players at
Sebring.
"He's a great coach, no
question about it," Hansen
said. "He cares about all of the
kids that have ever played
under him. He's been a hell of
a role model to me my whole
life. He sure had a big impact
on me and bringing me around
in life. I have a lot of respect
for him. He's been a big part of
my life."
Hansen then paid Rapp per-
haps the biggest compliment of
all.
"I played for him in 1972
and '73. I still see him all the
time, and he's still 'Coach.'
I'm scared he'll kick my butt if
I don't call him 'Coach.'
"After 35 years, he's still
'Coach,' and he always will
be."
