Jon Farbman has been chasing his dream of being a race car driver since his college days. 'The dream would be to show up on a Saturday
morning and the car would be there for me,' he said Thursday. But, when he showed up Saturday, it was to say goodbye and to close the
chapter on his auto racing dream.


By-KEVIN J. SHUTT '
kevin.sluitt@newssun.com
SEBRING Lake Placid
snowbird Jon Farbman considers
his story "pretty complex" but it's
actually quite simple.
Farbman, 65, continued chas-
ing his race car dream that came
to an abrupt halt in the early
1970s when he crashed his
Remington Shaver-sponsored,
England-built, Indy-styled, rear-
engine midget.
He was badly burned. Then.
came the oil embargoes. Money
was tight for everybody, includ-
ing his sponsor. The team was
suddenly under-funded.
"It was a rocket ship," Farbman
said, reminiscing about the
Merlyn-that culminated his short-
lived racing career.
Though it doesn't take a rocket
scientist to pilot a race car,
Farbman was a Cornell
University-trained astrophysicist
who left NASA after three years


to pursue --
a dream.

dream ,
began in
college,
when a friend let him drive a car
around Connecticut's Lime Rock
Park speedway.
He'd never driven a stick until
that day in 1963.
"I turned to my buddy and said,
'This is 'better than girls,'"
Farbman said Thursday, antici-
pating the delivery of his Mazda
Miata built by Boston's Flat Out
Motorsports for "specification"
racing.
Spec racing, as the name
implies, means each car is built to
specific specifications, leveling
the automotive playing field leav-
ing the racing to the drivers.
Farbman's plan was to get a
feel for his $50,000 car Friday,
qualify at Sebring International
Raceway on Saturday and race


the -lihre--
.. green-and-
blac k
T m a c h i n e
"today.
4.-1 Chasing
his dream, Farbman left his
NASA job to become a broker for
E.F. Hutton.
"That allowed me to make
more serious money to put into
my car," he said.
After a bad crash at Pocono
Raceway in Pennsylvania, he
realized that to be a serious racer
he had to learn more about his
car.
When his instinct talked, he lis-
tened and left the lucrative job at
E.F. Hutton to become a mechan-'
ic in training, earning $70 a week.
Eventually, he was driving a
Lotus Super 7 a sub-1,000
pound car propelled by 120 hors-
es and was winning races and
championships.
"But, it was as an amateur,".


I' adlilulin puiitJd ou.ut, explaining,
he was driving toward loftier
achievements.
He went professional, earned
$500 a weekend and attracted
sponsors.
But, it was in the Remington
Shaver Merlyn that a throttle
return spring broke, severely
burning Farbman.
He hasn't raced a car since
.1970, though he's turned more
than a few laps on the criterium
.bicycle racing circuits in New
England, where his heart became
his' motor and his legs his horse-
power.
Cycling brought him to Lake
Placid, where he could train
through the winter.
"It's really awful, the intensity.
of the training," he said. "I guess
it was three years ago, I was
somewhat disillusioned with bike
racing. It was harder and harder
to be competitive."

Sebring High to


get International


Baccalaureate


Program

Avon Park and Lake Placid
weigh in on the proposal

By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING Parents have weighed in.
They want the program.
The medical community has weighed in.
They want the program.
The question remains can it be imple-
mented fairly?
Teacher recruitment, funding not
absorbed by donations and the quality of
education at Lake Placid and Avon Park
high schools may stand in the way.
One teacher, familiar in the role of repre-
senting all instructors countywide as presi-
dent of the Highlands County Education
Association, seems to think so.
"As a science teacher I would like to be a
part of the IB program," Steven Picklesimer
said.
As HCEA president, he also has fellow
teachers on his mind.
"We will have to look at the reality," he
said. "Survey teachers about how it has
affected their teaching career and what are
some of the extras that we may not see
now."
Picklesimer said if the job requires extra
work, it would only be fair for teachers to be
compensated with extra pay, but added the
school board was fair in absorbingtraining
costs, estimated at $1,500 to $1,750 per
teacher.
"That's the fair thing to do," he said.
School board chairman J. Ned Hancock
said the district would hope to send at least
12-15 instructors and personnel, bring train-
ing costs to nearly $20,000.
Diane Juve of the Highlands Advanced
Academics Parent Network and a group of
community members said the program was
important to implement as soon as possible.
While in a tight budget year for the dis-
trict, the group said they will pick up the
budget shortfalls.
"If it is approved we just need to find a
bottom line," she said.
Still, the group may not cover all costs
associated with the program.
"It would be neat if we could get a grant
for the lab for example," she said while
addressing the board during the IB steering
committee presentation last week.
In a slide show presented by the commit-
tee, a 'mobile lab' included an estimated
cost of the program was $30,000.

APCI staff congratulated, encouraged and challenged


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tutfley@newssun.comn
AVON PARK Richard
Barron, vice president at
Florida Hospital Heartland
Division, spoke to the staff at
Avon Park. Correction
Institute on Wednesday dur-
ing their annual Black History
Month celebration.
Partly an opportunity for
the staff to get together, partly
an effort to reach out to the
community, the luncheon was
upbeat and friendly, the tone
set by Avon Park High School
freshman Calago Hipps Jr.,
who presented Martin Luther
King Jr's "I Have a Dream"
speech. Young Mr. Hipps,
whose father works at APCI,
did a powerful job of bringing
King's vision back to life.
When keynote speaker
Barron got up, he delivered a
stirring address that was as
much sermon as informative.
"This is not a place of
employment," Barron said as
he looked out over the audi-
ence nearly filling the big


room. "It is a place of min-
istry."
He said it was hard to know
what was happening in the
country today, which was one
reason he stood before the
prison's staff humbled and in
awe.
Look at the arrival bus, he
said, it's filled with young
men, not old men.
He said broken homes were
a part of a poisonous tragedy,
the women blamed by their
children for all the ills of the
world, mocked by their sons
and daughters who are part of
a younger, hip hop generation
too willing to blame the past,
racism and slavery for current
problems.
"There is more to our histo-
ry than slavery," Barron said.
"We are more than just former
slaves we have a future."
Children need to under-
stand the past, he said, but not
to the point of becoming over-
whelmed by it, or using it as
an excuse to inaction, or bad


actions.
He added that history has a
necessary place, that children
need to see examples of what
they can be, and how to get
there.
Barron finds three root
causes typically leading to
delinquent behavior female
led households lead to hyper-
masculinity in teen boys, who
reject all feminine qualities,
while glorifying the bad boys'
bad attitude.
Bring groups of teens like
that together and you have
gangs, Barron said, young
men "caught up in the terrible
attitude that 'I hate my moth-
er.' "
The numbers reflecting
these anti-social, anti-family
feelings are grim.
In the United ,States in
2001, an American had a 1 in
37 chance of being incarcerat-
ed at some time in their life.
But young black men face
the greatest dangers.
For example, according to


statistics from the federal
bureau of prisons, by the end
of 2001, 16.6 percent of black
adult males had been, or were,
incarcerated. Compare that to
7.7 percent of Hispanic adult
males, and 2.6 of white adult
males.
Put another way, Barron
said, if 2001 rates continue, a
U.S. black male has a 1 in 3
chance of spending time in
prison; an Hispanic male a 1
in 6 chance; and a white male
a 1 in 17 chance.
"Somebody has to do some-
thing to save our black young
men," Barron said. "God has
called us to save these kids. If
we don't do it,-who will?
"Bring a new taste to those
who have no taste," he said.
Do not lose hope.
"Share love," he said, "with
those who have been told
from day one, 'you're no
good.' God placed you here.
God expects you to help him,
save the unruly, the hate-filled
boys. We have to make a dif-

Editorial & Opinion

We thank, and pray


for, the APCI staff

It isn't often ordinary citizens get an opportunity to
look inside private public institutions.
Such is especially the case at the Avon Park
Correctional Institute, out in the middle of nowhere.
The nature of the work done there, housing- with
only some hope of making a difference those men
among us who have dark dreams and trouble control-
ling their impulses, discourages a close appraisal.
To tell the truth, most of us would rather forget all
about the place.
Which is why the News-Sun was honored
Wednesday to be invited to the institute's annual
Black History Month luncheon.
Open to all the employees, it was the integrated
staff who cooked the meal.
Think huge bowls of mustard greens, scalloped
potatoes, cabbage, green beans, ham, turkey, corn
bread, white flour rolls, sweet potatoes, macaroni and
cheese. And a separate table covered with cakes, pies
and cookies.
The people on hand, who came and went as shifts
changed, were a wonderful group of upbeat, focused
individuals. Every color and shade was represented.
Some spoke with upper class diction, some were still
mastering English, most reflected the Highlands
County drawl.
But what stood out, and marked the afternoon, was
the brotherhood and sisterhood expressed between the
co-workers regardless of their departments.
It cannot be easy, keeping a generation of almost
exclusively young men behind bars, watching their
lives waste away, taking in their frustrations and
hatreds. All the while knowing most of the men they
watch may never be saved.
In another state, or area of the country, when the
guest speaker, moved to the depth of his soul's gen-
erosity, called people to him for a prayer of benedic-
tion and hope, people might hold back.
But when Richard Barron, a retired pastor and vice
president of Florida Hospital Heartland Divisibn'.
called people forward, they flooded toward him.
And when he raised his. hand over them, imbuing
them with the possibility of hope in the face of stag-
gering, intimidating odds, one could only say Amen
with matching fervor.
And then whisper a prayer of thanks -thank you to
all of you who continue on day in, day out, in spite of
no immediate return.

Good old foot in mouth disease


Michelle Obama has gotten
a heavy duty education this
week on campaigning in the
light of the media. For those
of you avoiding anything
related to the presidential
race, she is the wife of
Democratic presidential can-
didate Barack Obama.
Speaking to a group of sup-
porters on Monday, she said
in part, "...For the first time
in my adult life, I am really
proud of my country. Not just
because Barack is doing well,
but I think people are hungry
for change."
Later, after the comment
had been repeated on numer-
ous talk shows and John
McCain's wife Cindy took a
swipe at the comment (Cindy
McCain said she always
would be proud of her coun-
try) Mrs. Obama sought to
repair the damage. She
explained that she had "obvi-
ously" been talking about the
political process, and she was
proud to see people actually
coming out and participating.
She added that of course
she's proud of her country.
Senator Barack Obama
raced to his wife's defense,
bemoaning how the remarks
were taken out of context. He
added that "...she's pretty
cynical about the political
process and with good reason,
and she's not alone. But she
has seen large numbers of
people get involved in the
process, and she's encour-
aged."
Well, yeah, of course she's


Laura's
Look
Laura Ware

not alone. This particular
election cycle is enough to
send anyone down the path of
cynicism. It would make
great fiction but it's real.
Let me discuss Michelle
Obama and her statement for
a moment. Because I try to
give people the benefit of the
doubt and because I don't
have the full context of the
speech she gave, I am willing
to believe her when she said
she meant she was proud of
the political process.
"But that's not what she
said!" some will cry. And
they are right. She goofed up
big time on word choice.
Maybe she was nervous.
Maybe she got caught up in
the moment. Maybe she
dropped a page of her speech.
It happens.
But something she and her
husband better learn fast, if
they haven't already, is that
mistakes like this are not
treated lightly by press on
both ends of the political
spectrum who pounce on
these things and repeat them
again and again. If they have
any doubts about that they
should talk to John McCain,
who's having troubles of his
own because people remem-
ber his words.
All of us have suffered foot
in mouth disease from time to
time. The difference between


us and someone like Michelle
Obama is that our mistakes
usually aren't recorded by
national news crews or
uploaded to YouTube by. some
eager eavesdropper.
However, as I think about
this, something else bugs me.
Michelle Obama could have
defused this quickly and sim-
ply. Using the same tactic,
McCain could go a long way
to pacifying some conserva-
tives who are ticked with
him.
The tactic? Apologize.
If Michelle Obama had
said, "Oh, I'm so sorry, I did-
n't think about how that
would sound, of course I did-
n't mean it that way..." it
would have knocked' out a lot
of the criticism. Not all of it
- there are some on the right
who would still have hung
onto it with bulldog tenacity
- but it would have helped.
As for McCain, I doubt he
would ever apologize. For
one thing, I don't think he's
changed his beliefs on many
of the issues. For another,
McCain strikes me as a proud
man and proud men do not
humble themselves easily.
But it would be nice to see'
some politicians do some-
thing like that. Politicians and
their wives humbling them-
selves and admitting mis-
takes? It could make a cynic
proud of the political process.

VFW collecting pennies for troops
Editor:
My name is Linda Robinette. I am the VFW
Veterans and Family Support chairman for the
Ladies Auxiliary Department of Florida and
Sebring Memorial Post 4300 VFW.
We have a very important project going on right
now for the Unmet Needs Program helping our
deployed troops and their families.
Pennies from Heaven for Unmet Needs is col-
lecting pennies to help the families of our troops
while they are deployed.
I know there are many Highlands County resi-
dents that have jars of pennies around the house,
probably had them for years. Well now is the time
to put them to good use. You can take the pennies
to Sebring Memorial Post 4300 on Lakeview Drive
in Sebring or Lake Placid VFW on 621 East in
Lake Placid.
One hundred percent of the money collected
goes to this cause. Now we can give back a little
bit to the troops who so selflessly give to our coun-
try by giving them the security of knowing their
families have the help they need at home.
Any questions, call Linda Robinette or Hank
Retherford at 465-5079. If you would like .to make
a donation, please call.

Remember, you're electing a president
Editor:
During our 2004 Presidential Election my volun-
tary assignment at democratic headquarters for
Precinct 24 was to call people, encouraging them to
get out and vote, offering transportation to anyone
who had no means of getting to the polls. Enjoyed
making those calls from my home phone, often tak-
ing a moment to chat and answer questions.
Usually, it took about four hours of three days to
complete the list of phone numbers I was given to


call. One conversation will forever stand out in my
mind and has peaked my curiosity ever since!
Whoever prepared those lists had mistakenly
typed in a Republican party member's phone num-
ber
I began my usual self-introduction of who, what
and where in a cheery, upbeat tone when suddenly
an irate and scolding woman's voice cut in. "I am
not a Democrat. My husband and I have been mar-
ried almost 60 years and neither of us have ever
voted anything but a Republican ticket. I don't
know how you got our number. We have nothing to
do with the democratic party. Apologizing profuse-
ly I was able to bring the call to a close without
bloodshed. One question the lady brought to mind
and I have never been able to shake it "Who goes
to the polls and votes and how much do they know
about the candidate's platform or are they merely
obedient to party affiliate, voting because of loyal-
ty? By the time that day's calls were finished I
couldn't get her dialogue out of my thoughts, nor
could I 'still my own counter thoughts. This two-
party system has become so deeply ingrained in our
thinking we aren't voting for quality and honor that
validates America as the greatest country on earth.
We are voting for 'party power.' "
... Now dear readers, take a moment and a deep
breath. Then ask yourself how many hundreds of
thousands vote "a straight ticket" of their party
regardless of who is running? ...
Don't give up on your right to vote. Before you
do vote learn all you can about your chosen candi-
date. If you don't like what you find, then search
until you do find at least some of the things you are
most interested in gaining.
Lastly, do not hesitate to vote for either
Republican or Democrat parties.
Remember you are choosing a president of
America. It matters who you vote for. Look over
your shoulder before you vote. Do you want anoth-
er eight years of our people being slaughtered?
Una V. McLaughlin
Sebring


Keep up the dialogue
Editor:
I have received a letter from a woman I will call
Ms. A.B., who is very angry with the Respect Life
Movement and with me in particular. My name has
been associated with Respect Life in Highlands
County and she "unloaded"-on me. Unfortunately,
she did not include a return address other than
Sebring, FL 33870. I have not been able to locate a
more thorough address.
Ms. A.B. lists 12 complaints against the Respect
Life movement, ranging from: It is only men who
are involved, we treat women as second-class citi-
zens barefoot and pregnant, indifferent to the
problems of unwanted pregnancies, hypocrisy and
in favor of the death penalty. In my view, these
complaints are not valid because there are agencies
in Highlands County who devote themselves to
helping women in crisis pregnancies.
Most troubling is her concern for unwanted
babies who end up abused, in a life of misery, tor-
ture and death. She seems to'justify abortion as a
means to save babies from potential abuse and tor-
ture in the future. It is patently absurd to advocate
destruction of life in the womb to prevent their
potential destruction at a later date. There are many
couples waiting years to adopt unwanted babies.
All life is sacred and is a gift from God and only
God should determine when it ends.
The tone of her letter is so bitter and antagonistic
it suggests a bad personal experience with an
unwanted pregnancy. If anyone knows Ms. A.B.,
ask her to write to me again so we can continue
this dialogue. There is help available in Highlands
County. Trained women who are not judgmental,
can advise, counsel and provide aide, both prenatal
and postnatal.
Ms. A.B. you have nothing to lose and you just
might find peace and your own forgiveness.

1st Baby Boomer

receives her first

Social Security

retirement benefit
Kathleen Casey-
Kirschling, the nation's
first Baby Boomer, recent-
ly made history as the first
of her generation to receive
a Social Security retire-
ment benefit. Having
applied online for benefits
at www.socialsecurity.gov,
Ms. Casey-Kirschling, who
was born at one second
after midnight on Jan. 1,
1946, received her first
payment by direct deposit.
"Like many of her fel-
low boomers, Kathy leads
a full and busy life," said
Jim Courtney, Social
Security deputy commis-
sioner for
Communications. "By
choosing direct deposit,
Kathy's benefit is safely
and conveniently deposited
into her bank account. No
matter where in the country
or the world Kathy
is, her money is as close as
the nearest ATM or just a
mouse click away through
online banking."
As the nation's first
Baby Boomer, Ms. Casey-
Kirschling is leading what
is often referred to as
America's silver tsunami.
Over the next two decades,
nearly 80 million
Americans will become eli-
gible for Social Security
retirement benefits, more
than 10,000 per day on
average. Ms. Casey-
Kirschling is setting the
example for millions of her
fellow boomers by receiv-
ing her retirement benefits
in the safest, Miost codi'eii-
ient way possible.
"Direct deposit is a win
for everyone," said Judith
R. Tillman, commissioner
of Treasury's Financial
. Management Service. "For
the last three years,
Treasury has led a cam-
paign called Go Direct to
educate Americans about
the many benefits of direct
deposit. We at Treasury
congratulate Kathy on
receiving her first Social
Security payment and on
her decision to Go Direct."
Direct deposit eliminates
the risk of lost or stolen
checks, reduces fraud,
helps protect against iden-
tity theft and gives people
more control over their
money. Direct deposit also
saves taxpayers millions of
dollars. In fact, according
to FMS, if every current
federal benefit check recip-
ient switched to direct
deposit, it would save tax-
payers about $130 million
a year.
At an event today in
Vero Beach, Florida, Social
Security also premiered a
new video public service
announcement that pro-
motes filing online for
retirement benefits. The
video, featuring Ms.
Casey-Kirschling, will be
posted to the Social
Security Web site later
today.
"Kathy is a trendsetter
for her generation," Social
Security's Courtney said.
"Just as she led the way by
filing for her benefits
online, we hope she leads
the way for baby boomers
to receive their benefits by
direct deposit."

PROGRAM
Continued from 1A

Board members remained
positive about the communi-
ty's commitment to cover
costs from implementing the
program.
According to board mem-
ber Wally Randall,
Superintendent Wally Cox has
frozen a position in the dis-
trict to accommodate a new
position created by the pro-
gram IB coordinator.
Wasting no time, Cox put
the name of Lake Placid High
School Principal Ruth
Heckman on Tuesday's agen-
da for board approval, the
same night the board votes on

"Carrero stated he occa-
sionally .sold cannabis so he
coul.1 pay his bills," accord-
ing:to Sebring Officer Tommy
Haralson in an arrest warrant
affidavit.
Haralson also alleged
Carrero admitted using
cocaine and marijuana.
The officers were sum-
moned by Carrero's landlord
who allegedly saw teenagers
inside the house at 1033
Lucerne Drive.
"Once Sgt. (Thomas)
Gilliard and I entered the res-
idence, we could smell the
strong odor of cannabis com-
ing from inside the resi-
dence," Haralson said.
While searching for burgla-
ry suspects, which included
checking an end table to
ensure nobody was hiding
within, they found several
bongs.
They contacted Carrero,
who later showed up and con-

He took the Skip Barber
racing school at SIR to see
what it would be like to get
behind the wheel again.
"My God, I haven't driven
a race car in 35 years and
they're willing to let me race
in their series," Farbman said
of feedback from the instruc-
tors. "That's pretty good."
Farbman admittedly suffers
from low self esteem, as do
many who feel the necessity
to prove themselves in com-
petitive sport.
Eventually, he reconnected
with the racing buddies of his
youth and he was convinced
to make a comeback.
"I decided, finally, last
spring that I would try it,"
Farbman said. "I would try
racing a car."
Last summer, with less than
three hours in a borrowed car
he finished 24th out of 34. He
entered another race three
weeks later, placing 11lth of
30.
Then, while qualifying for
another race, he crashed and
broke his neck. Before the
crash, the decision had
already been made to install
the Hans Device (a head and
neck stabilizer worn under a
helmet) before the following'
race.
"I was only in the car two,
two-and-a-half hours," he
said. "I was stopped on a
dime. My bike racing was
also stopped for the summer."
Farbman, just a few weeks
ago, got back on the bike.
Friday, He got back in a
race car, the one built for him
by Flat Out.
"I've been looking for
words why I'm not going to
drive," Farbman said during a
6:50 a.m. interview Saturday,
sharing feelings heretofore
reserved for his wife Jackie.
Farbman's otherwise sim-
ple story just became compli-
cated.
When he was supposed to
by fueling up with a bowl of
oatmeal before qualifying at
the track, he was thinking
about how he'd break the
news to the guys at Flat Out,
particularly owner Nick
Leverone.
"Like any other business,
the customer has what they
want to do in mind and we


the IB program.
Heckman would take
charge once she finishes the
remainder of the school year
at LPHS.
"I think we need someone
with administrative experi-
ence and strong in curricular
issues," Cox said. "She has
real strength in that area."
Heckman's emotions ran
the gamut from "exciting" to
"bittersweet."
"I have a great faculty here
so it's hard to leave them,"
she said. "I know they will
find someone really good to
take my place and I will leave
it in great hands."
Heckman has been at LPHS
for eight years.
The gains for the district
outweigh the loss in Lake


sented to a search.
Despite acknowledging he
owned the drugs, used them
and sometimes sold them,
Carrero wasn't arrested until
Feb. 7.
Commander Steve Carr,
SPD, said the practice of
holding off on ian'.arrest to
build a stronger case is not
uncommon with non-violent
crimes.
"We didn't feel he was a
danger to the community,"
Carr said, explaining there
was also the natural delay of
processing evidence through a
drug lab.
Germaine couldn't recom-
mend any disciplinary action
to Brooker without an arrest
or formal charges, he said.
He hired Carrero in 2003 as
a full-time deputy clerk for
central files. Carrero's collat-
eral duties included assisting
with tax deed sales and assist-
ing the domestic violence and
mental health courts,
Germaine said.
All employees are subject-
ed to random urinalysis and


roll with it," Leverone said,
explaining Farbman's car was
one of two built during the
winter.
In addition to building, Flat
Out rents cars for racing. In
fact, it was one of Leverone's
rentals that Farbman experi-
enced his "freak" neck-break-
ing crash.
Sometimes, after renting a
car, a customer will decide
that racing is not for him or
her, Leverone said.
But, Farbman was,the first
customer, an accomplished
racer at that, to decide his
heart wasn't in it after taking
delivery.
"It was an exercise we had
to go through,"', Levetone
said, explaining the. business
details would be worked out.
No, there wasn't anything
wrong the car.
"The car is' wonderful,
comfortable," Farbman said
of his total of one-hour on the
track Friday. "It runs beauti-
fully."
No, he wasn't scared of
wrecking (his bike injuries
were far-more debilitating
than any suffered in a car) and


Placid, board member
Richard Norris said.
"She is a great loss to our
high school but we will
receive a benefit countywide
by getting (IB) off the
ground," the Lake Placid rep-
resentative said.
The committee suggested
the IB program take root in all
three high schools, but the
longevity of that ideal think-
ing is questionable.
The IB program only runs
in grades 11 and 12 but
requires preparation'.
Students need to be pre-
pared for the rigorous work
and advanced subject matter,
making it necessary to offer
similar classes to freshmen
and sophomores.
This early start is called


are tested upon hiring.
Germaine said Carrero was
an excellent employee and he
was surprised to learn of the
allegations.
Carrero didn't miss any
work days around Oct. 18 and
he wasn't booked into the
Highlands County Jail.
The Sebring officers also
found copies of a "recent"
case at Carrero's home.
Germaine said he heard about
the copy, but defined it as an
"old" case.
Germaine believed Carrero
turned himself in, but
Germaine wasn't aware. his
case file included a certificate
of completion for Social
Solutions drug counseling
filed Feb. 7.
"Looks to me like he knew
something was going to hap-
pen," Germaine said, specu-
lating about Carrero's coun-
seling, which was completed
Jan. 29.
Carrero posted $3,000 bond
and was released Feb. 7. His
formal arraignment is 9 a.m.
Monday, March 24.


'pre-IB' and was suggested to
be installed in all three high
schools.
The new advanced curricu-
lum could affect students as
early as middle school.
Becky Fleck, assistant
superintendent in charge of
Curriculum and Instruction,
said starting pre-IB in all
schools would not be easy.
"It is much harder to spread
out your classes across three
high schools and four middle
schools to prepare them for
the IB program than to go pre-
IB at one school," she said.
Cox had similar concerns
about the pre-IB program tak-
ing root in every high school
in the district.
"Depending on how many
faculty are interested, we may
have to move off that recom-
mendation," he said.
Currently Advanced


Placement offerings at SHS
greatly outweigh similar
classes at APHS and LPHS.
"The problem has been
since we have such a small
student body down here, we
can't afford the selection that
Sebring can," Norris said.
"The whole IB program needs
to be worked into the culture
of the county."
Randall, representing Avon
Park, was not at the presenta-
tion, away on business.
He has spoken with Cox
and will meet with the mem-
bers of the committee to view
their presentation before
Tuesday's vote.
He likes many aspects of
the IB program.
Fairness, however, was a
concern. He doesn't want
education in Avon Park to suf-
fer to improve education in
Sebring.


he wasn't intimidated.
"It was a clear indication
that I am a race car driver," he
said. "I haven't lost anything
that I mastered when I was a
young guy."
No, the answer is simple
but explains the complexity
by which Farbman thinks.
"The thrill was gone," he
said. "It's tough to be able to
close the door on something
that was the most important
thing in my life."
On Thursday, he was wor-
ried that in 5, 10 years he'd
regret not revisiting his car
racing dream when he was in
a position to do so.
Now, he can seek the next
door to open, stepping
through it without regret.
His decision was bitter-
sweet liberating and some-
what sad, he said.
He has no desire to watch
today's races and is walking
away from motorsports, his
head held up high.
"I cried this morning and
I'll cry again later," Farbman
said Saturday, at the track,
saying good-bye to his car
and Flat Out Motorsports.


He was against the idea of
holding pre-lB classes at only
one school.
"That is something I. could-
n't support," he said. "Then
you would be improving edu-
cational opportunities for
some students but it could
have a very negative effect on
some schools."
Randall was against
waivers to allow APHS stu-
dents to attend SHS.
Hancock, the sole board
member on the committee,
confirmed in an interview late
Friday that waivers were
something the committee sug-
gested.
"Part of the recommenda-
tion was to allow students to
experience the program to
waiver in," he said.
The argument was this
would give students a four-
year high school experience.

Chocolate, learning and quilts shared fare at Heart to Heart


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Did you
know that chocolate, learning
and sewing are all related?
Especially when it comes to
quilts?
All four are standard fare
at the recently opefied Heart
to Heart Fabrics and More,
1024 U.S. 27 in the Publix
Shopping Center.
Opened Dec. 1 by owners
Pat and Al Brenchley, the
shop is quickly becoming
known for its friendly atmos-
phere and learning environ-
ment.
Al does the repairs, Pat
does the quilts, and both
enjoy working with the pub-
lic.
Standing and listening in
the shop for a few minutes, it'
became clear that everyone
who entered was greeted with
a smile.
"We eat chocolate, we sew,
we learn and we have fun,"
Pat said.
Pat's background is in the
craft industry, but she felt
that 15 years at JoAnne's
Fabrics in Winter Haven was
not as fun as running her own
shop would be.
"Almost anyone can do it,
and it is good fun," said Pat.
The smallest quilter is
Amber Adams, just 7 years
old, and the oldest is, well, a
lot older, so the hobby seems
to include a wide variety of
participants.
"I like quilting," said the
young Miss Adams as she put
the finishing touches on a
quilt she made for her moth-
er. "And I have my own
sewing machine."
- "We opened in Winter


Haven about seven years ago,
and we wanted to give a little
bit more than the standard
corporations do. Customers
were really becoming
friends, and one-on-one cus-
tomer service is what we are
all about," Pat said about
why she wanted to open her
own store.
"Everyone who walks
through the door loves that
they are here," said Sherry
Fourez, one of the class
teachers.
Featured in Wall Street
Journal and on CNBC news
in a segment about successful
businesses without a Web
site, the store in Winter
Haven was drawing so many
folks from Highlands County
that it just made sense to
open a second store in Avon
Park.
"We attended a guild quilt
show about two years ago,
and everyone was so nice.
The community has wel-
comed us beyond what we
expected," Pat said.
When asked about building
a new store in this area, Pat
was very optimistic about
their outlook.
"Folks would come from
Sebring and Avon Park to
visit us in Winter Haven, so
we are not worried about a
customer base."
"Our number one job is
customer service," Al said.
"We were both getting a little
tired of the corporate atmos-
phere, and we both really
enjoy what we are doing
now."
Pat plans on having classes
on wearable art and begin-
ning sewing:.--
And' no, stack-n-whack is

not a game at the mall
involving small rodents and a
club. It is actually a quilting
technique where squares of
cloth are cut in blocks and is
an easy way to create quilt
blocks with unique kaleido-
scope designs. These designs
require a set of identical
pieces cut from a print fabric.
Rather than finding and cut-
ting each piece individually,
a quilter can cut and layer a
number of large, identical
print rectangles to make a
stack.
Quilting is a method done
either by hand, by sewing
machine, or by the Longarm
quilting system. The process
uses a needle and thread to

join two or more layers of
material together to make a
quilt.
Typical quilting is done
with three layers, the top fab-
ric or quilt top, batting or
insulating material and back-
ing material. The quilter's
hand or sewing machine pass-
es the needle and thread
through all layers and then
brings the needle back up.
The process is repeated
across the entire piece where
quilting is wanted.
A straight or running stitch
is commonly used and these
stitches can be purely func-
tional or decorative and elab
orate.


News-Sun photo by ED BALDRIDGE
An example of the Stack-n-Whack type of quilting.


Quilting is done on bed
spreads, art quilt wall hang-
ings, clothing, and a variety
of textile products. Quilting


can make a project thick, or
with dense quilting, 'and can
raise one area so that another
stands out.

Stevens Construction wraps up renovation

project at Fla. Hospital Heartland pharmacy


Special to the News-Suni
SEBRING Stevens Construction Inc. has

ice pharmacy. Designed by HuntonBrady

cist's office, educational library, records con-
trol room, intravenous and chemical mix area

was project administrator.
This is Stevens Construction's seventh proj-
ect for Florida Hospital in the past three years.

STEELE
Continued from 9A
So are retailers or anyone
else highly dependent on the
consumer's disposable
income.
The economic activity that
a business owner feels is
often regional or tied to a
specific industry or line of
business. Some regions fare
worse than others when
things get tough.
The saying is that all real
estate is local. Maybe they
also ought to say all reces-
sions are local.
What to do, then?
Don't pay too much
attention to the national
newspaper or TV stories
about the economy. Look
straight ahead at your own
situation.
Don't lose faith. The
mess we are in was caused
by a combination of easy
money policy from The
Federal Reserve over a peri-
od of years, and unsound
practices at financial institu-
tions. By the way, this has
happened before. Easy
money pushes up asset values
and the financial institutions
forget what they learned
itbout bubbles the last time
around. But our country's
underlying economy is very
strong and diversified and it
will rebound. It always does.
Be realistic. Business
expectations that may have
been set when things were
overheated will have to be
reset. Instead of focusing on
the heights of yesteryear,
focus on getting your share
of what there is today. Or
maybe a little more than your
share.
Be tough. You do this by
cutting out every cost that
isn't necessary for survival
and making sure that your
deal is the best deal cus-
tomers can find. Margins
may suffer, but you will be
moving forward. The goal is
to make sure you're there
and healthy when times start
to improve.


A $10 donation per person will be
requested at the door for the concert.
A free-will offering will be received
during the concert for FCC Ministries.

Promote. You not only
make sure the customer is
getting the best deal from
you, you also make sure he
or she knows about it. This
does not always have to be
the rock bottom price as long
as there is a unique benefit
attached to your value propo-
sition. Advertising can be
expensive, and now more
than ever it has to have a
hook to compel the customer
to your door. Find ways to
promote your deal that don't
cost money.
Do the numbers. First,
make sure that there is a real-
istic scenario that either
breaks even or provides you
the minimum profit you
require. In other words, what
level of sales can you realis-


tically expect and how can
you tailor a budget to that
revenue. Keep a detailed
financial plan to measure
yourself against. If cash flow
isn't going according to the
plan, you will need to see it
and take corrective action
promptly.
, Maybe you're thinking,
"All that's easy for you to
say." Well, the truth is that if
all these things are easy for
me to say, and not so easy to
do.
Not doing them, however,
may end up being even hard-
er.

Five things every




taxpayer needs to know




about the Government




Rebate Check!

1. File 2007 Income Tax Return-You can't get a rebate check this year unless you file your 2007
tax return.

2. The Sooner the Better-The sooner you file your tax return, the sooner you might get your rebate
check. Come to Jackson Hewitt...and we'll help you.

3. Electrotonic Filing is the Way to Go-IRS e-file will help you get your rebate check sooner. It's
fast, convenient and you'll know your tax return has been received because you'll get a confir-
mation of receipt. Certain taxpayers may not be able to e-file and must file a paper return.

4.Don't Count Yourself Out...You May Qualify-If you're a senior citizen on Social Security, getting
retirement or disability benefits, or didn't need to file a tax return this year you could STILL quali-
fy for a rebate check. Just come to Jackson Hewitt and we'll help you find out if you're eligible,
and then file your tax return.

5. Watch Out for Your Two IRS Notices-Taxpayers who qualify will receive two notices from the
IRS: one on the Stimulus Payment program and a second one confirming their eligibility, pay-
ment amount and timetable for payment. You'll need to save the second notice to help in prepar-
ing your 2008 tax return next year.


To schedule your tax preparation appointment and see if

you qualify for the Government Rebate Check, contact your

local Jackson Hewitt office at 1-800-234-1040 or visit us

at www.jacksonhewitt.com



Eligibility requirements for Stimulus Payments will apply.

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop


Not been this

way before
Car packed to the brim,
we moved from New
Jersey to Florida. We had
never been this way before.
At first, it seemed scary
heading out with'a family
of five to an unseen desti-
nation. But, with a postal
position awaiting Ken, we
drove on with expectant
anticipation of a new life
for all of us.
God knew the path well.
So, in faith, we proceeded.
Now, a new journey
awaits us.
Placing our faith in the
One who is trustworthy,
we'll once again travel a
road we've not been down
before.
That road is retirement.
As of Feb. 29, my husband,
Ken, will retire from the
U.S. Postal Service after 31
years of service.
As we look back on how
God led Ken to a postal
career and helped direct the
various stages of his occu-
pation, we are truly thank-
ful. God supplied work in
which my husband was
able to faithfully care for
Shis family, represent his
God in service to others
and be an example of a
good work ethic to his
sons.
"Neither sleet, nor rain,
nor snow, nor ice... etc."
(or words to that effect)
really do apply to Ken.
Even dog bites and bee
stings!
He delivered mail in
incredible snow storms up
north driving long dis-
tances when he worked
out-of-state for a time.
Howling winds and driving
rain didn't stop him. He
underplayed wounds from
the unexpected and unwel-
coming inhabitants that
lurked around mailboxes.
He kept a good disposi-
tion and awoke ready to do
it all over again. He
worked his share of over-
time but didn't compro-
mise family time learning
how to balance both by
having a heart that honored
God.
As Psalm 128: 1-4,
NKJV, says so beautifully,
"Blessed is everyone who
fears the Lord, who walks
in His ways. When you eat
the labor of your hands,
you shall be happy, and it
shall be well with you.
Your wife shall be like a
fruitful vine in the very
heart of your house. Your
children like olive plants
all around your table.
Behold, thus shall the man
be blessed who fears the
Lord."
Ken will truly miss his
customers. But he is also
ready to set out on this new
adventure retirement
from the Post Office, but
not from life.
On the horizon are more
ministry opportunities,
time to work together in
our home-based business
and more time to travel to
see our family.
Congratulations to my
husband Ken for a success-
ful career in the Postal
Service. And though we
haven't been this way
before, God has. Together
we take the hand of the
One who is the way and
move forward in faith.
Selah

Diversions


PLEASE CALL THEATRE OR VISIT US

LIISDW 11Violence in TV and movies is disturbingly popular
Violence in TV and movies is disturbingly popularOLNEOMOIS&DHWclE


Question: What's the
appeal of all this human suf-
fering and violence on televi-
sion and in movies? Why do
people want more of it'?
Dr. Dobson: I'm sure it
has ,.',oiciin2i to do with our
desire for excitement and our
need to escape from the bor-
ing existence many people
experience. But, I have to
admit I don't fully under-
stand it. It is difficult to com-
prehend why people enjoy
watching such bloody events.
A number of years ago, the
number one television pro-
gram in the entire year,
watched by more people than
all the sporting events or any
other single :io''i.iim in the
course of the 12 month peri-
od, was "Helter Skelter," the
story of the Charles Manson
family. One incident in that
TV special was the murder of
a woman, eight months preg-
nant, who was brutally
stabbed in the abdomen. Why
would anyone want to see
such brutality?
The popularity of that pro-
gram and others like it
speaks dramatically about the
depravity of the American
people and our lust for vio-
lence.

Question: As a single
mother, I'd like to leave my


children with
friends or relatives
for a few days and
get some time for
myself, but I'm
worried about how
this might affect
them. Will they
feel deserted?
Dr. Dobson: Not
only is a brief time
away from your
children not likely
to be hurtful it


Focus On
The Family
Dr. James Dobson


will probably be
healthy for them. One of the
special risks faced by single
parents is possibility of a
dependency relationship
developing that will trap their
children at an immature
stage. This danger is
increased when wounded
people cling to each other
exclusively for support in
stressful times.
Spending a reasonable
amount of time apart can
teach independence and give
everyone a little relief from
the routine. Therefore, if you
have a clean, safe place to
leave your children for a
week or two, by all means,
do it. You'll be more
refreshed and better able to
handle your usual "home-
work" when you return.

Question: I have a very


fussy eight-month-
old baby who cries
whenever I put her
down. My pediatri-
cian says she is
healthy and that she
cries just because
she wants me to
hold her all the
time. I do give her
a lot of attention,
but I simply can't
keep her on my lap
all day long. How
can I make her less


fussy?
Dr. Dobson: The crying of
infants is an important form
of communication. Through
their tears we learn of their
hunger, fatigue, discomfort,
or diaper disaster. Thus, it is
important to listen to those
calls for help and interpret
them accordingly.
On the other hand, your
pediatrician is right. It is pos-
sible to create a fussy,
demanding baby by rushing
to pick her up every time she
utters a whimper or sigh.
Infants are fully capable of
learning to manipulate their
parents through a process
called reinforcement, where-
by any behavior that pro-
duces a pleasant result will
tend to, recur. Thus, a healthy
baby can keep her mother
hopping around her nursery


12 hours a day (or night) by
simply forcing air past her
sandpaper larynx.
To avoid this consequence,
it is important to strike a bal-
ance between giving your
baby the attention she needs
and establishing her as a tiny
dictator. Don't be afraid to
let her cry a reasonable peri-
od of time (which is thought
to be healthy for the lungs),
although it is necessary to
listen to the tone of her voice
for the difference between
random discontent and gen-
uine distress. Most mothers
learn to recognize this dis-
tinction very quickly.
When my daughter was
one year of age, I used to
stand out of sight at the door-
way of her nursery for four
or five minutes, awaiting a
momentary lull in the crying
before going to pick her up.
By so doing, I reinforced the
pauses rather than the tears.
You might try the same
approach.

man of the board of the nonprofit
organization Focus on the
Family, Colorado Springs, CO

Avon Park Library Film Series has been moved to last Friday of month, starting Feb. 29


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK The
library's film series has been
restructured. From now on the
films will be presented
monthly on the last Friday of
the month. The screenings
will commence at 2 p.m.
Unlike before, the film selec-
tions will not be thematic.
Most of the films will be from
those issued by Film

selected for their quality and
represent a worldwide cross
section of current cinema.
Many of them will be subti-

tied.
Occasionally the library
will dip into early American
films when they have quality
and time has limited presenta-
tions. Just such a film will be
the initial offering.
"The Miracle of Morgan's
Creek" was directed by
Preston Sturges in 1944.
Suggestions have been put


forth that Americans had been
at war for nearly three years
and they needed something to
make them laugh and leaven
their spirits. This movie was
offered as the answer. It was
hugely popular playing to
packed theaters across the
nation.
Unusually audacious for
the time in Hollywood film


history, the film relates the
story of a small town girl
(Betty Hutton) who goes to a
dance at the local Army base,
has too good a time, comes
home the next morning sup-
posedly wed to she knows not
whom and a month later is
pregnant.
4-F local boy, Eddie
Bracken, who adores the girl,


is willing to do anything to
keep her from the impending
shame. Being a consummate
burglar, he only worsens the
problem.
When she comes to term
and produces sextuplets, pre-
vious detractors can't wait to
jump on her bandwagon as the
national press converges on
Morgan's Creek. William

Extra


Demarest turns in a virtuoso
performance as Hutton's
father and the local constable.
Diana Lynn plays the 14-year-
old sister and the only voice
of reason in this zany farce.
The film runs in 99 minutes.
The film will be shown on
Leap Day, Feb. 29, in the
library's meeting room at 2
p.m. and is free to all.

to what causes the disorder,
however no substantial
answers have been found.
According to the United
States Department of
Agriculture, the main symp-
tom of CCD is no or a low


need to pay attention to CCD
because for every three
mouthfuls of food we eat,
one is a direct result of bee
pollination. For example,
nuts, berries, fruits and veg-
etables are mainly foods that
have been pollinated by
honey bees.
"The world's food supply
depends on pollination by
bees. So anything that causes
a significant loss of honey
bees would severely Jimit the
foods available to us.
Overall, pollination is
responsible for about $15 bil-
lion in added crop value."

Colony Collapse Disorder is contributing to the loss of the
honeybees, which have been disappearing in the wild since
1971 and in kept hives since October 2006.


February 2008
Many theories exist as to
what causes CCD. Pesticides,
parasites, pathogens, viruses,
stress; poor nutrition, low
nutrition, scarcity of nectar,
exposure to contaminated
water or limited water supply
and even cell phones have all
been pinpointed as possible
causes. The short answer is
that we simply don't know
what causes it.


CCD has beekeepers wor-
ried. Some have lost over
half of their colonies and if a
solution is not found for this
disorder, it could seriously
threaten the pollination
industry as it becomes more
widespread. Therefore, scien-
tists are aggressively
researching this problem and
teaming up with all con-
cerned to find a solution.
For example, the USDA's


Agricultural Research
Service held a CCD research
workshop that brought
together more than 80 of the
major bee scientists, industry
representatives, extension
agents and others to discuss a
research agenda.
The team has developed a
research action plan to
research what is causing the
disorder and what actions to
take.
According to the
researchers "the search for
factors that are involved in
CCD is focusing on four
areas: pathogens, parasites,
environmental stresses, and
bee management stresses
such as poor nutrition. It is
unlikely that a single factor is
the cause of CCD; it is more
likely that there is a complex
of different components."
(USDA)
What can be done while
the researches are searching,
for a solution?
According to the USDA,
beekeepers can take steps to
be pro-active:
Do not combine collaps-
ing colonies with strong


colonies.
When a collapsed colony
is found, store the equipment
where you can use preventive
measures to ensure that bees
will not have access to it.
If you feed your bees
sugar syrup, use Fumiagillin.
If you are experiencing
colony collapse and see a
secondary infection, such as
European Foulbrood, treat
the colonies with Terramycin,
not Tylan.
As a homeowner, the best
action you can take is not to
use pesticides indiscriminate-
ly, especially not to use pesti-
cides at mid-day when honey
bees are most likely to be out
foraging for nectar. You can
also plant and encouragethe
planting of good nectar
sources such' as red clover,
foxglove, bee balm and joe-
pye weed.

Lake Placid Country Fair art show award winners announced


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID An
amazing array of wonderful

the exhibits the first weekend
of February each year at the
Lake Placid Country Fair.
Artists and craftsmen may
enter any or all of the 10 divi-
sions -in each of which there

all classes. From all first
place recipients in a class, a
Best of Class winner was cho-
sen to receive a Best of Class

of Show red, white, and blue
tri-color ribbon and $25 cash
was awarded to the top entry

lenge for-the judges.

culty of judging, and others

AVON PARK The South Florida
Community College Matinee Series is pre-
senting The American Piano Show, a tribute to
great American and patriotic composers, at
1:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 4, in the SFCC
Auditorium, Highlands Campus.
The American Piano Show is an exciting
musical concert starring world-renowned
pianist and entertainer Linda Gentille, and
features the music of the great American com-
posers such as Gershwin, Berlin, Foster,
Leonard Bernstein, Hogie Carmichael, Rogers
& Hammerstein, Cole Porter, Scott Joplin,
John Phillips Sousa and Neil Diamond. One
of the shows highlights is Gentillefs fabulous
rendition of "Rhapsody in Blue."
Gentille, a former protege of the late
Liberace, recently returned from her 10th con-
cert tour of China, where she holds the world
record for having performed over 105 concerts
there and is the only western pianist to per-
form and sing in Mandarin.
Accompanying Gentille is Jim Yester, the
original lead singer of the famed '60s vocal
group, The Association. Yester sold more than
40 million records with the recording group
with such hits as "Windy," "Cherish," "Never
My Love" and "Along Comes Mary." Yester
will be singing as well as accompanying
Gentille as part of her band.
The 2008 SFCC Matinee Series is being co-
sponsored by Rick and Jean Moyer, and Bill
and Lisa Jarrett.

New School
By Daniel Bedell
Dad I officially challenge
you to a basketball game. And
not one of our old basketball
games in the driveway where
your only defense was making
enc laugh so hard I nearly had
hI.,dJucr failure and couldn't
make a shot. That was so
cheap!
No, I challenge you to a
game of NBA past.
My team of now vs. your
team of 1984, the wonderful
year I was born. I pick first
and I got Steve Nash and
Kobe Bryant.
Steve Nash has got to be
the greatest point guard of my
generation.
He has helped make pass-
ing the ball cool again after
Michael Jordan killed that off.
Now I admit that Nash's
career hasn't overall been the
most amazing, but his last
four years since going to
Phoenix have been fantastic.
He has averaged 17.6 points
and I 1.3 assists over that


Daniel Bedell
time.
The most impressive stats
that Nash has are the intangi-
bles of winning.
He took the Suns from a 29
win team before he came, to a
62 win team! A 33 win differ-
ence!
That is the third biggest
turn around in NBA history
and it was pretty much all
Nash as he ignited his team
into of the most electrifying
fast break teams ever.
I mean really how many
teams have you ever seen con-
sistently get up the court in
three seconds or less?
He has had some bad luck
in trying to get a champi-


onship but if he can incorpo-
rate Shaq into Phoenix's sys-
tem and get his -ring I think he
will have to go down as one
of the best point guard's in
NBA history.
And if nothing else he will
live on in immortality on
YouTube highlight clips
where it often looks like he is
playing with a ball that is lit-
erally on a string.
I think he should also get
some credit for giving the
average-size athlete every-
where hope.
Hope not just in basketball,
but hope in scoring.
How you ask? He dated Liz
Hurley! Making him the ulti-
mate double threat!
Now I am about to do
something that I never
thought I would do and that is
defend Kobe Bryant.
If you taught me one thing
dad you taught me to hate the
Lakers and so I know it must
be painful for you to read this
and for that I apologize.
But last night I watched


News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE
Maribel "Pink Shoes" Garza drops down a perfect bunt,
helping set the stage for a three-run fifth inning for the Lady
Panthers. Those, unfortunately, would be the only runs Lake
Placid would score in the 13-3 loss to All Saints Friday
' night.


Kobe play against the Suns in
Shaq's big debut and I have to
admit he looked very close to
unstoppable.
And unfortunately he
seems to be learning how to
play as an actual team player.
So at tile age of 29 he may
actually be about ready to live
up to the hype, which indeed I
do find troubling.
And for all you want to say
about Magic and Karcem,
Kobe is now the ultimate
Laker.
He has set records for the
Lakers in most points in a sea-
son, a game,a half and a quar-
ter.
He has had 9 consecutive
games scoring 40 or more and
four consecutive scoring 50 or
more. He has three champi-
onship rings.
To my chagrin, he seems to
have ridden out this wave of
losing, gotten some quality
teammates around him and is
posed to win it all.
If he is able to win a cham-
pionship this year, being only


John Bedell
one year older than Michael
Jordan when he won his first
one I am ooing to have to give
him some respect.
I hope he doesn't do it, I
hope he fails miserably like
when the Pistons crushed him
in 2004, but admittedly it isn't
looking good.

Turkey Talk

There's no point in me
trying to tell you where
to go to catch a lunker
bass or livewell full of
specks.
The guys who are get-
ting out on the lakes are
catching bass up to 10-
pounds and the speck
fishermen are bringing
home full stringers of the
best eating fish found
anywhere.
So, let's dispense with
all the fishing where-at
and how-to and get on
with other outdoor things
that get hunters anxious.
and fired up for the
spring season.
To you nimrods who
didn't get drawn for a
special-opportunity or
spring turkey quota per-
mit, there's still hope for
you.
There are many
wildlife management
areas (WMAs) that don't
require them. Statewide,
we have 35 public hunt-
ing areas where you only
need to '"walk on" to hunt
spring turkeys.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission, along with
the state's Division of
Forestry, the U.S.
Forestry Service, Florida
Department of
Environmental
Protection, the National
Park Service and other
governmental services
make these hunts possi-
ble.
Resident hunters need
only their regular $17
.hunting license.
A management area
permit ($26.50) is also
needed along with a $5
turkey permit. Total cost
for a resident ($48.50). A
10-day license for a non-
resident is $46.50 plus
the area permit ($26.50)
and a $100 turkey permit.
The total cost for a non-
resident ($173).

Sebring Seniors slugging away


Sunday, February 24, 2008 3C


Buttonwood, Lake Bonnet ring up wins


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The scores on
Thursday, Feb. 21 games of
the Sebring Senior Softball
League were fairly routine
numbers.
Silent Salesman found that
Highlands Independent Bank
Sebring's ability should not
be underestimated.
They hit surprisingly well
making the score a close 16-
10 through the fifth inning.
The Salesman then pumped
it up to score nine runs in the
last three innings, making a
final score of 25-12. '
Salesman's fielders seemed
to be playing the game "hot
potato" with the softballs,
which helped the Bank's
score.
The Bank's main hitters
were Ramon Gomez and
Larry Lane each banging out
a double.
Ray Concepcion and Paul
DuBrule added their efforts
by batting 3-for-5.
Salesman's hitting barrage
was led again by Marvin
Knutilla going 5-for-5 with
three doubles.
Don Cunningham and
Richard Godfrey each had 4-
for-5 including a home run
and triple.
Marvin, Fred and Harley
each rounded the bases four
times. Mike Jurmu added his
4-for-5 including two dou-
bles.
Royal Palm showed their
strength again on the winner
side tumbling Discount
Aluminum 18-8.
High scorers were Joe
Healey 3-for-4 including a
home run and single.
Tom Gaiownik was 2-for-3
with a home run, and Bob
Weiss went 3-for-3 with a
home run and double.
Hitting triples were Jim
Longman, Bob MacCarrick,


and Doug I-lammond. The
Team also executed four dou-
ble plays.
For Discount Aluminum the
home run hitters were Jim
Larnard and Jim Hensley,
while Dave Wiseman went 3-
for-3.
The Klingons overshad-
owed the Rebels with a 24-16.
win as the Klingons boasted
two grand slams off Don
Day's bat and one grand slam
slugged by Ross "Spider"
McMinn.
The Rebels held their own
ground with Tom "Moose"
Morrissette, Jerry Mattis and
Stan Turl all going 5-for-5.
Adding their power were
Don Matthews 4-for-4, Jim
Strietzel and Jim Munroe
going 4-for-5
Reflections and Highlands
Independent Bank Avon Park
had an exciting tie of 3-3
through the fifth inning.
Then, the Reflections shift-
ed the momentum and scored
five runs in the 6th and 7th
innings, making the final
score 13-3.
Best hitters for Reflections
were Wayne Hill and Ron
Lewis each going 3-for-4.
The Bank's Pierre
Boissonneault went 2-for-4
with a double, Ron Boyd 2-
for-3 and Don Crotser 2-for-4.
The games on Tuesday,
Feb. 19 had no big blowouts,
just moderate scores and no
budding all-stars shining.
Discount Aluminum caught
a lot of attention with their
new classy uniform shirts and
caps, plus they had a winning
score of 23-14 over the
Klingons.
Aluminum was in the lead
until the fifth inning when the
Klingons poured on some coal
and scored eleven runs.
But Aluminum was able to
douse the rally and won the


game.
Discount Aluminum's
James Gilbert was lead hitter
by slugging out two home
runs.
Four players going 3-for-4
were Mike Ellis with three
RBI, Jim Larnard, Rudy
Pibble and Tom Walsh each
earning two RBI.
The new kid on the team,
Rod Palmer, went 3-fbr-3
with two runs scored.
Some of the Klingons
doing their share were Don
Sheets and Ross "Spider"
McMinn with two home runs.
It was Double-Bank Day
When Highlands Independent
Bank Avon Park and
Highlands Independent Bank
Sebring faced each other on
the diamond.
Avon Park outdid Sebring
with a 13-4 final score.
They wore their opponents
down due to so many of their
hits being singles.
Pierre Boissonneault was 3-
for-5 with two singles and had
the lone double of the game.
The singles clubbers were
Charley Williams 4-for-5, Stu
Hayner 4-for-4, Carl
Puffenburger and Bob Kearns
each 3-for-4.
HIBS had a bad hitting day,
pumping the ball directly to
the fielders and creating lots
of "fielder choices" on the
scorebook.
Larry lane was 2-for-3
scoring twice, being responsi-
ble for two of the four runs
scored.
A few of their players were
limping onto the field, but
determined to participate.
Reflections met Silent
Salesman on Field B with the
score of 17-8 tilting their way.
There were no home runs
for either team and
Reflections' only triple
belonged to Bobby Fulcher -


he and Brian Pluto both went
3-for-4, while Wayne Hill and
Ed Lindberg each pounded
out 3-for-3.
Silent Salesman again
rapped out 18 hits, but left
eleven men on base in the los-
ing cause.
Marvin Knutilla continued
his hot hitting getting three
singles in four at bats.
Fred Moore also had a good
day going 4-for-4.
The only extra base hits for
the Salesman were Mike
Jurmu with a triple and
Harley Smith with a double.
Royal Palms and the Rebels
were neck and neck for the
first two innings, and then the
Rebels pulled ahead by one
run.
The Palms took hold of the
reins by scoring five runs apd
kept plowing ahead for a 21-
11 victory.
Their high scorers for the
day going 3-for-4 were Ross
Anderson with a home run,
triple and single accountable
for 6 RBI and Bob
MacCarrick with a home run,
double, single and 4 RBI.
Another homer was belted
out by Doug Hammond.
Rebels best offensive play-
ers were Elwood Black going
5-for-5, Stan Turl 4-for-4 and
Jerry Mattis 4-for-5.
Jim Strietzel did his part
going 3-for-4. A few errors on
both sides contributed to the
high scoring game.
The League standings after
fourteen games are: Royal
Palms 13-1, Reflections 12-2,
Silent Salesman 8-6, in 4th
place are Discount Aluminum
and Highlands Independent
Bank Avon Park 7-7, 5th
place Klingons and Rebels 5-
9, Highlands Independent
Bank Sebring 0-14.

Continued from 1C
kept the Lions scoreless for
the rest of the game, and
pitcher Jeff Bloomer went the
distance giving up just five
hits total.
The Panthers would score
one more time in the bottom
of the fifth, and would finish
the first game of the double
header way out in front 13-2
without having to bat in the
seventh.
*SFCC looked to continue
its' winning ways Saturday in
a double header against the
University of Tampa B team,
before welcoming another
team from Baltimore,
Catonsville Community
College tomorrow at 6 p.m.

STREAKS
Continued from 1IC
hitting machine began grind-
ing outl runs, picking up nine
before the 13ulldoes' defense
capped the inning.
Although errors plagued
the Bulldogs, the Bl3ue
Streaks seemed to rare better
defensively ending up with
no errors on the night.
"We needed a win like
that," head coach Hoppy
Rewis was heard to say. "Our
hitting has improved greatly,
and we played well defen-
sively. All aspects of the
game just came together for
us.'
The Bulldogs would pick-
up one run late in the game,
while Sebring added two
more, but DeSoto could not
rally at all, and the game
ended with the Streaks out
front 13-1.
On the road next, the
Streaks will travel to the
south end of the county to
face the Lake Placid Green
Dragons Monday night at 7
p.m. before hosting another
district rival, Sarasota
Booker, Tuesday.


SCHOOL
Continued from 1C
Michael Jordan.
After all, MJ was just a
rookie in the 1984-1985 sea-
son, but a rookie that aver-
aged 28 points per game.
Your guy is Steve Nash. I
will take Isiah Thomas and
watch him shred Nash for
thirty points.
Zeke could outplay your
guys in a lot of ways.
, in the 1984-1985 season,
Zeke averaged 13.9 assists
and 21.2 points. He also
pulled down 4. 5 rebounds a
game.
I don't think you will find
those kinds of stats anywhere
in Nash's biography.
Nash is a fine player and he
has done a lot for his team.
Yet he isn't the kind of scorer
that usually comes with a
superstar label.
In the spring of 1984,
Isiah got the Pistons to the
playoffs against a better New
York Knicks team.
Detroit was on the verge of
being eliminated in game five
before Zeke scored the 16


points in 1:34 left in regula-
tion to tic the gale.
Detroit lost in overtime and
most people have forgettenl
Zeke's efIort.
Daniel, I like Nash's game
but he could never do that.
Maybe hlie could in a video
game, but not on an NBA
court.
Here is another guard you
forgot about and I'm sur-
prised at this one.
You've been on his college
campus and he was a big rea-
son I hated the Lakers. Lots of
fans hated Earvin "Magic"
Johnson because he was so
good.
Magic led a high flying
fast-break offense too.
He also redefined the point
guard position at 6-foot-9.
You cotUld make a pretty
strong argument that he was
the most versatile player in


the history of the NBA. No
one will ever say that about
Kobe Bryant.
Magic often played power
forward on defense while he
played point guard On offense.
One of his best moments
came as a rookie.
Magic stepped in and
played at center after Kareem
Abdul -Jabbar sprained an
ankle. When did Magic take
over at center? It was game
six of the NBA finals in
Philadelphia against Doctor J
and company.
Imagine Phil Jackson ask-
ing Kobe to play center.
I think it would look a lot
like that game where
Jackson's last second play
called for the ball to go to
Toni Kukoc rather than
Scottie Pippen.
Scottie decided to sit that
one out.


In that game, Magic scored
42 points, hauled down 15
rebounds and dished out
seven assists. Los Angeles
won the series 4-games-to-2.
Magic was one of the few
players to be on an NCAA
title winner in college and
then be part of an NBA cham-
pion the very next year.
So Nash and Bryant against
Zeke and Magic this just
seems too easy.

I know that turkey hunters
are not going to let the sea-
son catch them by surprise
but we don't have much time
to get-ready.
Sorry, I can't get out there
after a big gobbler, but an
accident a few short years
ago left me with a steel
implant in my right shoulder.
Being right handed, I can
no longer take the recoil of a
12-guage but I still have that
anxiotis feeling when turkey
season rolls around. The
Spring turkey season runs
from March 1 thru April 6 in
the South Hunting zone and
from March 15 thru April 20
in the Central and Northwest
zones.
Shooting hours on the
WMAs are one-half hour
before sunrise to 1 p.m.
The nearest WMA for
hunters in Highlands county
is the Arbuckle WMA in
southern Polk county.
It covers 13,500 acres. The
season there runs March 18 -
20 and April 1-3. There are
10, no-cost, daily quota per-
niits available at the check
station on first-come, first-
served basis.
Camping is allowed in the
Arbuckle WMA only by per-
mit from Division of
Forestry by calling 863-635-
7801.
Covering 23,433 acres in
Highlands, Glades, Polk,
Osceola and Okeechobee
counties, the Kissimmee
River Public Use Area is
split between the Central and
South hunting zones. For
hunting in the South zone,
the season runs from March
1 thru April 6.
No management area per-
mit is required. For camping
information only, call the
South Florida Water
Management District at 1-
800-250-4200.
For more about Florida's
WMAs and hunting regula-
tions, dates, permits and gen-
eral information, go online to
