In tense race

for Democratic

superdelegates,

Mahoney stays

uncommitted
By MATT MURPHY
matt.niurphy@newsstti.com
SEBRING It has been a
long, tense, and at times nasty
last few months in the
Democratic primary election
between Hillary Clinton and
Barack Obama. And given
Clinton's recent wins'March
5 in Texas, Ohio and Rhode
Island, the race doesn't
appear any clearer than it did
before.
According to an Associated
Press analysis, Clinton won't
catch Obama in the race for
Democratic delegates chosen
in primaries and caucuses,
even if she wins every
remaining contest. But
Obama cannot win the nomi-
nation with just his pledged
primary and caucus delegates
either
Obama has won nominat-
ing contests in 27 states and
territories, giving him the
lead in pledged delegates,
1,360 to 1,220. Even if he
wins every
remaining
pledged dele-
gate -
inclu'ding 33
that haven't
been awarded
from previous
Mahoney races he
will fall short of the 2,025
needed... to secure the
SDemocratic nomination.
That's where the superdel-
egates come in, the nearly
800 party and elected offi-
cials who will decide the
nomination if both candidates
stay in the race.
Among those superdele-
gates are every Democratic
Congressman and Senator,
including Highlands County's
representative, Tim Mahoney
(D-Palm Beach Gardens).
Mahoney said he has been in
contact with both Obama and
Clinton's camps, but he is
staying out. of the fray for
now.

Pinewood Derby is '1.2 Seconds of Sebring'


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Justin Graham exhibited the
modest confidence of a competitor Saturday as
he waited for tech inspection at Lakeshore
Mall's center court.
Justin, 11, isn't a professional, yet he under-
stands the importance of aerodynamics and
weight, even at the Pinewood Derby level.
Several dozen Cub Scout packs from
Highlands and Hardee counties brought their
cars, mechanics and parents to Sebring for
their annual regional competition to see who
goes to the district races in Tampa.
"I tried to get it exactly on five ounces,"
Justin, of Sebring, said.
Explaining he hollowed out the bottom of
his car and filled the void with melted lead,
Justin spent two to three days building his car


and painting it blue with a pair of white race
stripes.
"It looked cool," he said, when asked why
he picked the color scheme.
Justin's mom Jackie said his father, Shawn,
built a car of his own, to show his son how to
use the tools.
Having learned by example, Justin then
tackled his own project, saying he liked work-
ing with the band saw most.
Justin's been a member-of Pack No. 808 for
a few months and is new to scouting. Also new
to the camaraderie and adult leadership that is
the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts was Austin
Purser, an 8-year-old Wolf Scout from
Wauchula's Pack No. 823.

Bullets found on middle school campus; student suspended, no charges filed

Park Middle School while
officers from the Avon Park
Police Department looked
into ammunition found out-
side one of, the classrooms.
Loose bullets were found
by an APMS teacher Feb. 28,
Acting Police Chief Michael
J. Rowan said.


The bullets were not report-
Sed to police officials until
Friday morning.
When she was notified,

Have fun for four



good causes


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.comn
SEBRING Lisa
Celentano says the most
exciting and fun fundraising
event of the year is coming up
Wednesday.
That's when the Hairpin
Spin takes place, from noon
to 2.p.m. at the Four Points by
Sheraton Chateau Elan's new
ballroom.
The money raised at the
event will be distributed to
four local charities the
Humane Society of Highlands
County, the Children's
Services Foundation, the
Highlands Art League's
Change for Children Art
Scholarship Program, and the
Sebring Sports Car Racing
Hall of Fame Museum.
A full Italian buffet, gour-
met desserts and a variety of
wines will be served for
lunch. Entrance is $25 a per-
son.
The fun revolves around a
six-foot roulette wheel, which
is used to determine who wins
which of 15 prizes donated
for the event.
Another $25 buys 10 chips.
Buckets are in front of every
prize. Place a chip, or all of
them, in the bucket of the
desired prize. When the time
comes the chips are placed on
the roulette wheel, which is



Sunrise Rotary

works on

Habitat home

Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID -
Members of the Sebring
Sunrise Rotary gave up a day
off to work on a Habitat home
in Lake Placid. They showed
up ready to paint and com-
pleted the whole home in less
than six hours. The Rotarians
are the world's first service
club organization. The
Sebring Sunrise Rotary are
volunteering their time and
talent to further the Rotary
motto, Service Above Self.
This is the second time in
the past two weeks that they
have volunteered to help a
Habitat fainily. They also
donated $2,500 to help build
Habitat homes in the future.
Merritt O'Brien has shown
excellent leadership as he is
the person who lines up these
work days with Volunteer


spun. The winning chip is the
one the wheel stops at.
In some cases there are
more chips than slots on the
wheel. In that case, there are
elimination rounds, with
those winning chips finally
playing against each other.
There is a broad variety of
prizes, including the use of
vacation homes in Montana
and the Bahamas, and a fish-
ing trip in Canada. The grand
prize is a VIP package to the
Races. That includes access to
an air-conditioned suite, press
passes, pace laps, and a racing
art poster, whose frame alone
is worth $400.
But perhaps the most
excitement, Celentano said, is
the rare opportunity for the
average individual to get to
meet the drivers themselves.
They will be on hand dressed
out in their racing suits and
available for conversation or
autographs.
Don Elwell is serving as
master of ceremonies, so
there will be no dead time.
Most of the tickets have
already been purchased, but
there is still time to take part.
Some tickets will be available
at the door.
Dress is race casual. Major
credit cards are accepted. For

bullets and students from the
teachers last class from the
previous day.
"After speaking with stu-
dents they told her about
rumors they heard, and they
acted on that and narrowed it
down to a person," Rowan
said.
Within 45 minutes officers
discovered who the student
was and had the child in cus-
tody.
No charges have been filed,
but the student led officers to
a small handgun matching the
bullets .
"It was a .22 caliber
firearm, some of the shells
were also of a .22 caliber
nature," Rowan said.
The handgun was owned by
one of the student's friend's
parents but was not recovered
on school property.
The two children disagree
how the student came across
the weapon. One said it was
given to him, the other said
they were never given permis-
sion to take it.


Due to the conflicting state-
ments the owner of the gun
has not filed a complaint, so
police will not pursue theft
charges.
Because no weapon was
found on school grounds, only
ammunition, any charges
would likely be at a misde-
meanor level.
The student was suspended,
Rowan said, but Deputy
Superintendent Rodney
Hollinger would not confirm
or deny any disciplinary
actions made by the district.
Hollinger talked with Dr.
Richard Rucker, the assistant
principal of APMS, while the
incident unfolded and said it
was handled "very well."
Rucker, recovering from
surgery, was not available to
speak with the News-Sun.
Principal Dan Johnson was
not at school Feb. 29, but
knew what happened.
"We first found the ammu-
nition lying around with no
rumors or anything," Johnson
said. "Once we got some

Parents were not contacted
and the school was not locked

"You don't really panic
unless there is something to it,
like if someone has a gun," he
said. "But there is not any-
thing you can really do until
you get information from the
kids so you know where to
start."
Hollinger said the appropri-
ate measures and precautions
were taken and a lockdown
was not needed.
"A lockdown would happen
when you don't have a specif-

posed problem to where there
is no specific target a stu-

As for the teacher not
immediately reporting his late
Thursday findings to the
appropriate authority, whether
a superior at the school dis-
trict or police officials, only
Rowan had a recollection of
the time, read from an APPD
report filed by his officers on
scene.
"I am not aware of any lag
of report, from anyone in the
school," Hollinger said. "I
think there was interagency
cooperation and it was not a
situation where it called for
any drastic measures."
There was no malicious
intent behind the student's
possession of bullets and a
gun, Rowan reassured.
"During the course of the
investigation officers' fears
were dispelled after speaking
with the subject of any sort of
intent of harming anybody,"
he said. "It appeared to be
more of a show and tell type
thing."

Accreditation team invites public comments

about the Highlands County Sheriff's Office


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, through its Strategic
Plan, has been working to
become an accredited law
enforcement agency. Over the
past two years, members have
worked diligently to conduct
a self-assessment of policy
and operations within the
agency. As a result, policies
have been rewritten, process-
es improved, and systems set
into place. The final team of
assessors representing the
Commission. for Florida Law
Enforcement Accreditation
(CFA) will arrived to examine
all aspects of the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office poli-
cies and procedures, manage-
ment, operations, and support
services, Sheriff Susan
Benton announced. To
become accredited, the
;Highlands County 'Sheriff's
office has to comply with
approximately 254 profes-
sional law enforcement and
operational standards in order
to receive accredited status.
Many of the 254 standards are
critical to life, health and


safety issues.
As part of the on-site
assessment, Sheriff's Office
members and the general pub-
lic are invited to offer com-
ments to the assessment team.
The Sheriff'
s Office members and the
public may call 402-7384 on
April 10 between the hours of
1 and 5 p.m. Telephone com-
ments are limited to 10 min-
utes and must address the
Sheriff
's Office ability to .comply
with CFA standards. A copy
of the standards is available
through Highlands County
Sheriff's Office Accreditation
Manager in Sebring at 402-
7323.
For more information
regarding CFA or for persons
wishing to offer written com-
ments about the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office abili-
ty to meet the standards of
accreditation, please Write
CFA, 3504 Lake Lynda Drive,
Suite 380, Orlando, FL
32817.
The Accreditation Manager
for the HCSO is Kim
Ketchner. She said the assess-


ment team is composed of law
enforcement practitioners
from similar agencies. The
assessors will review written
materials; interview individu-
als; and visit offices and other
places where compliance can
be witnessed. The CFA On-
Site Assessment Team leader
is Director Mike Somberg
with the Broward County
Sheriff's Office. Other team
members are Lt. Sheila M.
Rowden with the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission and Debra
Jacobs with the Oviedo Police
Department.
Once the Commission['s
assessors complete their
review of the Sheriff's Office,
they report back to the full
Commission, which will then,
decide if the Sheriff's Office
is to receive accredited status.
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office meets : ,.the
Commission's sutndards is
part of a voluntary process to
gain and maintain accredita-
tion, a highly prized recogni-
tion of law enforcement pro-
fessional excellence, Benton
said.

Missed opportunity

The only disappointing thing about the second
annual S.A.L.T. Shakers and Movers meeting, held
Friday at Florida Hospital Heartland Division, was so
few people turned out for what was an informative
morning.
It isn't often so much material gets covered all at
once, or that community leaders like the sheriff, the
Lake Placid police chief 'and the director of
Emergency Management can be together to answer
questions.
Those of you who passed up the opportunity missed
something worthwhile.
For example, JoAnn Chambers-Emerson, from the
Poison Control Center, presented information about
the dangers of mixing over-the-counter medications,
herbals and megadose vitamins with prescription
medications.
Did you know that caffeine depletes the body of
calcium? Or that megadosing on beta-carotene (safe-
ly found in orange and yellow vegetables like carrots)
can raise the risk of heart attacks or cancer for smok-
ers and alcohol drinkers? That taking garlic pills with
diabetes medications can lead to low blood sugar?
That glucosamine is made from shellfish and can
cause an allergic reaction?
See what you would have learned?
Lt. John Chess., who heads the sheriff's Special
Victims Unit, explained that ID kits created so par-
ents will have the necessary information on hand for
law enforcement should the awful, awful happen and
a child go missing can now be used for Alzheimer's
patients. In fact, the sheriff's office tracks wanderers,
and has created an ID bracelet program.
One attendee said some communities have a Silver
Alert program, a variation on the Amber Alert system,
where local authorities can be contacted quickly in
the event a confused, elderly individual goes missing.
She suggested it be instituted here.
Which was something else those of you who didn't
bother to attend missed out on, a two-way dialog with
everyone listening to one another.
- Misty Hughes of Wauchula State Bank spoke about
identity theft and how to defend against it. She said
the Federal.Trade Commission reports identity theft is
the number one complaint in the country today. Out of
the 813,899 formal complaints filed to the FTC in the
course of a year, 32 percent involved identity theft,
for losses totaling $1.2 billion.
In addition to the experts on hand, there were piles
of pamphlets and brochures filled with additional
information, phone numbers, and Web sites.
In a world filled with new dangers and high tech'
thievery, it's a foolish choice to ignore good informa-
tion when it is offered.
We thank the organizers for what was useful event.
Hopefully next time it will be standing room only.

Our original Constitution's goal was


to create a government in balance


As we go through our
daily political life with all
eyes on the horizon, with
concerns about our future, it
is useful to look backwards,
to see how far we have come
and what changes have
occurred. Sometimes we go
too fast, proceed headlong
into the future in pursuit of
an idea that has not been
thoroughly examined and
carefully considered.
We have just come
through a period where our
government, totally con-
trolled by one party, execu-
tive and legislative, has
plunged into one folly after
another,, blindly following
doctrine and hastily ill con-
ceived plans that need not be
re-examined. ...
Consider, for example, the
decision to choose a bicam-
eral legislature, with one
house chosen by popular
election, all of the members
standing for re-election every
two years. This would pro-
vide for an impute for the

popular issues of the day,
those questions that seemed
to require some immediate
response. Also a two-year
term provided an opportunity
for change should popular
opinion or the issues change.
By contrast, the other house
was initially chosen by the
state legislatures, not by pop-
ular election, Senators serv-
ing for six years and their
replacement on a rotating
basis.
Clearly the intent here was
to provide for a more delib-
erative body, not so subject
to immediate change, to slow
the response to the vagaries
of public opinion. Both the
longer term and the fact that
only one-third of the body
was subject to being changed
every two years compels the
conclusion that the framers
thought that time to deliber-


ate and consult was a very
good thing. Also, placing the
election in the hands of the
several state legislators
rather than directly in the
hands of the electorate was
thought to give cooler heads
time to reflect on the wisdom
of a particular course of
action.
In the selection of the
president, two things of note;
firstly the creation of the
electoral college, a conces-
sion to the notion that as
sovereign states in a republic
coalition, an overwhelming
majority in favor of a partic-
ular candidate in a populous
state would not automatically
cancel the votes of another
state where its majority held
a contrary opinion.
One thing the framers
wanted to avoid was an
excessively strong executive.
In the Federalist Papers
much discussion is devoted
to the comparison between a

National election may be one of race
Editor:
It goes without saying that Barak Obama has
won the hearts of the liberal media and press. His
speeches are reminiscent of "old time religion" as
he offers platitudes and demagoguery against big
corporations and President Bush. By promising
"Change We Can Believe In" and "Hope" he has
enchanted young people and fellow blacks. It is
here where I believe a.problem may arise.
Blacks have almost unanimously lieserted
Hillary Clinton, a staunch ally for years, and cho-
sen someone without solid credentials ostensibly
because of his color. Doing so has allowed Obama
to run up a significant amount of Democrat pri-
maries. The danger, as I see it, might make the
national election one of race. Obama is well
equipped for a primary but not so when it comes to
a general election. That's when he will have to
defend his lack of accomplishments and liberal
bent.
His attacks on big business weaken and become
more risky since school teachers and union work-
ers benefit through their retirement portfolios and
union holdings. As the most liberal senator in con-
gress, a position to the left of the likes of other
popular primary winners Eugene MacCarthy and
George Macgovern, he will need to defend policies
of the far left. Some of which are very unpopular
with the majority of Americans. Expect topics to
include homosexual marriage, abortion, illegal
immigration, and the war on terror to come front
and center. His position on Iraq, a favorite with the
anti-war crowd, differs again with most of the vot-
ing public. America's security will also become an
issue in debates.
While unparalleled as a public speaker, Barak
Obama will be confronted by unscripted debates,
an area where he is less accomplished. Hillary
Clinton would be a match with any from the other
party but, it looks as though she won't get the
chance. Therefore, the only hope rests with John
McCain, who is disliked by his party's conserva-
tive element. Should they abstain from voting,
Democrats could back into a win.
In any case this will be a great and historic elec-
tion and we are privileged to be part of it. As the


1950's TV show announcer Walter Cronkite said,
"What sort of a day was it? A day like all days
filled with the events that alter and illuminate our
times and, You Are There."

Don't expand government
through current crisis
Editor:
The, concept of "Stimulus Package" connected to
building permits and impact fees stirs all kinds of
response. The editorial had dwelt on the issue of
local businesses hurting, on the brink of bankrupt-
cy and thousands of people laid off because of the
economic downturn. The proposed "stimulus" will
not help them.
The more likely Big Picture is that Highlands
County is in the path of growth, of progress. Both
coasts of Florida are filled up with development
and growth is moving inland. To suggest that
impact fees be reduced and a moratorium put on
building permits to generate growth would gut the
very impetus that would infuse the economic
growth the editorial writers seek. Such an idea
screams "Developer Policy."
The developers had already succeeded in reduc-
ing impact fees to 25 percent in 2006 of the actual
cost of infrastructure, which demand for was creat-
ed by developers. How many were permitted to
slip under the deadline last year to escape impact
fees? 50; L00, 500? The county already has a $400
million backlog of needed roads (e.g.: arterial
roads north and south, a bypass), not to mention
schools and other public facilities. Thus, it would
be "premature" to reduce impact fees or exempt
building fees that would undercut the very essence
of governmental services.
Those who create the demand for infrastructure
and services should pay a significant portion of the
cost. The great majority of those who came here in
the past paid their share of the cost; they received
no exemptions. In fact, self-contained communities
paid for their own infra-structure, etc., in addition
for governmental services through fees and taxes.
Thus, they do not deserve the extra burden of pay-
ing for others' demands.


What the county government needs to do now is
to wait to see what the state legislature will do to
resolve the current crises of property taxes and
insurance rates. Amendment One raises more ques-
tions than solutions it produced. Current state laws
already require developers to comply with master
plans currently established in each county. One
thing it should not do with the current crisis is to
expand government.

Is McCain any better than Bush?
Editor:
It has been said that when Bush leaves the
White,House it will be the "End of an Error" (sic).
But will it? Those poor misguided souls who voted
for Bush are now lining up to vote for McCain.
Instead of condemning Bush, the worst president
in history, for his failures they're endorsing
McCain who would extend this failed presidency.
McCain worked diligently to get Bush re-elect-
ed; he's backed Bush in everything.
McCain has been Bush's most solid support in
the Senate on Iraq.
McCain voted against holding Bush accountable
for his actions in the war.
McCain has consistently opposed any plan or a
timetable to withdraw troops from Iraq.
McCain opposed efforts to end the extension of
the military that is having such a devastating effect
on our troops by voting against requiring mandato-
ry minimum downtime between tours of duty for
troops serving in Iraq.
McCain has consistently misstated the of
progress of the war-saying it would be over soon:
"The point is that we will win this conflict, we
will win it easily." [MSNBC, 1/22/03]
"I believe that this conflict is still going to be
relatively short." [NBC, Meet the Press, 3/30/03].
But talk about a flip-flopper! McCain now says
he sees no end to the presence of U.S. troops in
Iraq, he has publicly stated we could remain in
Iraq for one hundred years, "that would be fine
with me." [Derry, New Hampshire Town Hall

The great


cat detour

I just got back from a work-
shop in Lincoln City, Ore. My
friends and family know I must
make at least one trip to Lincoln
City a year. My writing mentors,
Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine
Kathryn Rusch, live there and
often conduct workshops for a
group of young writers like
yours truly.
As I usually do, I asked my
fellow writers if any of them
were renting a car and did they
have room for a passenger?
Lincoln City is a two-hour drive
from Portland, which means you
have to figure out transportation
besides an airplane.
I have not, to date, rented a
car myself. It's not a question of
finances, it's a question of actu-
ally getting to.Lincoln City.
Long-time readers of this col-
umn might recall that I am
somewhat directionally chal-
lenged. I'm always afraid that if
I try to drive to Lincoln City by
myself, I'll make a wrong turn
and wander forever on the West
Coast.
A lovely lady and fellow
insane writer named Rebecca
offered me a seat in her car, and
I moved on to other things I
needed to do, like finishing my
reading and doing laundry.
A couple of days before I was
to leave, Rebecca sent me an e-
mail, asking if I would have a
problem with a cat detour.
The short version of this story
goes like this: One of Rebecca's
daughters is in Germany for a
year, working as an au pair and
soaking up the culture. Her cat,
a rescued cutie named Scout,
was staying with her roommate.
Said roommate found she could-
n't continue caring for the cat,
so kitty had to find a new home.
Rebecca figured she could
pick up the cat, get the required
travel permits and fly her home
to Colorado, where she could
live until Gretchen came home.
This meant stopping in a small
town called Corvallis on the way
to Lincoln City. Did I mind?
Now I haven't hung around
cats for years, ever since I was a
girl and knew Inky, our genuine
alley cat (we found him in an
alley). But I don't have a prob-
lem with cats, as long as they
don't use me for a scratching
post. Besides, Rebecca was
being nice enough to share a car
with me for an extended period
of time. So I said sure.
Thus, when Rebecca picked
me up from my Portland hotel
on Thursday, I was prepared for
the Great Cat Detour.
We arrived in Corvallis with-
out too much trouble. There I
got my first look at Scout, a
kitty with a blob of different
colors and uncertain parentage.
She'd been rescued but had
adjusted to people well. I mean,
she let me pet her without prob-
lems, a sign of a tolerant cat.
After all, I'm pretty sure she
smelled Perky on me.
We took her to a local vet and
got permission for her to fly on
a plane with Rebecca. Then we
returned her to Gretchen's room-
mate, with plans to pick her up
on our way back to Portland on
Sunday.
Rebecca worried about the
trip. Scout didn't know her, and
the airline said the cat could stay
under the seat as long as she
didn't make a lot of noise.
Would the kitty freak out at
30,000 feet?
I haven't heard yet, but I sus-
pect things went just fine. Scout
mewed some on the journey
from Corvallis to Portland, but
appeared to respond to baby talk
from me and didn't try to tear


apait the kitty carrier. I suspect
she's now at Rebecca's home in
full explore mode.
Thanks again for the ride,
Rebecca. And I told you I could
write 600 words on our cat
adventure!

McCain was one of only 13

McCain opposed the cre-

McCain has praised Bush's

he's done a great job leading
the country." [MSNBC,

McCain: "Yes, I believe he's
doing a fine job." [May 12,

Be careful when
buying supplemental
insurance
Editor:
Back in December 2007
my mother, who is 76, was
looking for a supplemental
health insurance to go with
her Medicare. She had con-
tacted a local office and (an
agent) came to her home and
tried to explain the coverage.
My mother couldn't make
sense of all the different
plans that are available and
so she told Mr. Wiflis that she
would think about it and that
she wanted her daughter to
.look over the papers, but
before he left he wanted her
to give him a blank check to
speed up the process should
she decide to go with the
company.
Like I stated previously
this was the first part of
December. Well my mother
heard a few people say that
She should re-think her choice
of that company and so she
called and told him that she
changed her mind and didn't
want to go with his company.
He told her to write a letter of
cancellation (even though she
wasn't really signed up yet!)
So we wrote a letter on Dec.
26, 2007 and she hand-deliv-
ered it, that day, to the


Submissions

editor, send it to 2227 U.S.

Sebring office on U.S. 27.
Since the policy would have
originally started on Jan. 1,
2008 she wanted to make
sure they got the cancellation
notice on time. The letter
stated that she was not
authorizing the company to
deduct anything from her
checking account. On Jan. 22,
2008, they deducted $119.20.
On Jan. 29, 2008 my moth-
er got her bank statement and
noticed the discrepancy,
which overdrew her account.
She called the office, they
gave her a toll-free number to
contact the insurance compa-
ny that they signed her up
with, directly. She called that
toll-free number and since
she wasn't in the system they
had a problem locating her
and said they would have to
research the payment ...
I finally had to call
Wachovia Bank and get a dis-
pute form sent in and they
reimbursed my mother's
account a few days later:
What a nightmare this is to
deal with!

No consultants please
Editor:
This letter is regarding the
issue about hiring a consult-
ant to study future recreation-
al needs in Highlands County.
It is a shame that after we
elect commissioners to make
important decisions based on
feedback from the residents
and input from county staff,
time and time again we are
told that a consultant should
be hired.'
We do not need consultants
making recommendations to
so-called advisory commit-
tees, who in turn make rec-
ommendations to the
Highlands County
Commission. Such as struc-
ture in local government adds
to the waste and inefficien-
cies that our county commis-
sioners have promised to
reduce and eliminate.
County commissioners: I
hope that you will use your
influence to hire and promote
county staff to appropriate
levels, so that county staff
can take some responsibility
for the studies and work
needed to move Highlands
County forward.

a sent a clear message to
Highlands County commis-
sioners. We want less govern-
ment, less spending, and

king and the governor of a state, contrasting
the limited powers afforded to a governor as
compared to the inherent powers of a
monarch. After George III, the people needed
reassurance.
Another, more subtle balance was struck by
providing that the runner up in the. presidential
election should serve as vice president. In
addition to being a standby, he served as presi-
dent of the Senate. Although only having a
vote in the event of a tie, as the presiding offi-
cer of the Senate he could guide debate and
serve as a leavening influence in policy con-
siderations. this was more important than
seems at first blush. It was an acknowledg-
ment that the losing party should not be with-
out voice, that what was not wanted was the
all or nothing kind of results, which our con-
temporary politics have led us to. Even if the
Senate was dominated by the same party as the
president, the minority party still had an influ-
ential voice in its proceeding.
All of these provisions, many abandoned or
forgotten, wvere designed to prevent the majori-
ty party, the one with 51 percent of the vote,
from ignoring the losing party, the one with 49
percent of the voters. Consultation and biparti-
san compromises, prolonged thoughtful debate
was the intended result.
And what a pretty place we have come to
when the president can now count on his
party's legislative majority to implement is
will, wherever it may lead us. With the majori-
ty ready to fall into lockstep behind its presi-
dent. It is no surprise that he did not have to
brandish his veto pen for his first six years in
office.
Originally, a super majority was contemplat-
ed for overriding a veto or ratifying a treaty,


lower tax bills. This is an
election year. The residents of
Highlands County must take
a hard look at the people rep-
resenting us. If we do not
have,people in public office
and on county staff capable
of making decisions on such
matters, then it is time to
elect and hire people who can
make decisions and do stud-
ies without spending taxpay-
ers' money on consultants.

Crossing fix was long
overdue
Editor:.
The new railroad crossing
on DeSoto Road was long
overdue to anyone that travels
that road daily.
Years ago I spoke to a
commissioner at the railroad
crossing. He advised me there
were other crossings in
Highlands County rougher
than the one on DeSoto Road.
I then asked him if he was
proud of that knowledge.
There is now a sign to
warn motorists about the
rough railroad crossing -
strange that sign was not in
place when the crossing was
indeed rough.
Hats off to the railroad and
any and all local persons for
this super job done on the
DeSoto railroad crossing.

nothing else. Now in the Senate the necessity
of getting '60 votes can tie up needed legisla-
tion, a rebellious Senator can prevent an
important bill from ever reaching a vote, and
committees, almost equally divided now spend
half their time defending bad executive choic-
es in the name of party loyalty.
Currently delay and distraction is the order
of the day for the slim Republican minority in
the Senate, enable through a myriad of proce-
dural rules to prevent any meaningful changes
not approved by an overconfident president
who is able to veto any legislation of which he
disapproves. Confident that is loyal wrecking
crew of 49 percent of the Senate will prevent
any override.
Now the conservative cry for term limits,
confident that any Congressman who might
otherwise rise to the level of true statesman
with seasoning with the long term benefit of
the people in mind will be swept out of office
to be replaced by jumped up zealots full of
contemporary fervor and eager to support
"their" president.
What is sorely needed is a rethinking of the
purpose of the original checks and balances
concept so as to prevent the dangerous sce-
nario which we now have, where party loyalty
overrides all else.
Perhaps every newly elected congressman
and senator should be provided with a copy of
John F. Kennedy's "Profiles in Courage" as a
reminder of what their true purpose is. Also a
reading of the Constitution as originally writ-
ten, together with a set of the Federalist Papers
wouldn't be such a bad idea either.

have been in communication
with all camps," Mahoney
said via e-mail in response to
a News-Sun inquiry. "I
believe my role as a
Congressman and superdele-
gate is to be an advocate for
the people of my district with
all of the presidential candi-
dates."
Mahoney has worked with
Clinton on a federal home-
owners insurance bill, and he
said he would prefer to con-
centrate on that and other
causes during this congres-
sional season instead of,
throwing his support behind


one candidate or the other.
"Affordable homeowners
insurance, creating jobs by
making Central Florida a
leader in biofuel production
and lowering taxes for small
business and middle-class
Americans are the issues that
the presidential candidates
need to support," said
Mahoney. "The fact that we
have been successful in get-
ting every candidate,
Democrat and Republican
with the exception of Senator
McCain, to support federAl
homeowners insurance legis-
lation tells me it is the right
stance."
Clinton leads in endorse-
ments from superdelegates,


242 to 209. But that lead has
shrunk in the past month.
Since an AP survey the week
of Super Tuesday, Obama has
added 53 superdelegates,
while Clinton has had a net
loss of one.
In the overall race for the
nomination, Obama has 1,569
delegates, to 1,462 for
Clinton, according to the lat-
est AP tally.
The lobbying of superdele-
gates has been fierce, with at
least six Clinton superdele-
gates switching to Obama. So
far, none of Obama's
superdelegates has strayed, at
least not publicly.

Press was used in this story.

Umbrella policy

covers more.

than you think
Special to the News-Sunt
SEBRING March is
National Umbrella Month
and although this awareness
month usually focuses on the
item used to keep us dry dur-
ing a storm or shaded from
the sun, Teresa Gaines of
Brooke Insurance in Sebring
is using the opportunity to
educate local residents about
how an "umbrella" can pro-
vide much more protection
than they think.
"When it rains, it pours -
and you'll be glad to know
you have an umbrella,"
Gaines said, referring to the
umbrella insurance policy
that provides an extra meas-
ure of protection beyond an
individual's auto or home-
owner's insurance policy.
"We always tell our clients -
and others, too that it's
better to have too much pro-
tection than not enough,
especially when you're fac-
ing liability."
According to Gaines, an
umbrella insurance policy is a
personal liability insurance
.that is typically inexpensive
and extends coverage for
accidents that involve seri-
ous. personal injuries or
extensive property damage.
Gaines said some people may
overlook the importance of
this kind of policy, but it's
something that could make a
big difference when an indi-
vidual finds him or herself in
a tough situation.
"An umbrella policy can
come in handy when your

3D virtual room design helps plan


out home improvement projects


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING It's like a love affair gone sour.
The oak wood paneling used to make your
heart skip a beat, but now the house feels dark
and gloomy. The touch of your hand on a
curved staircase now gives you shivers of a dif-
ferent sort. The kiss of fnoonbeams on hidden
alcoves and dancing in odd-shaped rooms that
once seemed so inviting now seems ghostly and
pale.
After a few years of living in a home, you
find yourself yearning for a change.
To make matters worse, many of us at one
point or another have decided to redo a room in
the home, but somewhere along the line, got
stuck.
We end up repainting a room several times;
purchasing and returning area rugs, throw pil-
lows, window- treatiients-and other items
because we just can't quite perfect the room


design we'd imagined.
After multiple trips to the paint store for
paint patches, samples that never look the same
in the house, and constant complaints to get it
done, most of us just give up and live with the
"comments" from the neighbors and relatives.
One of the more important 'new develop-
ments for homeowners planning to remodel or
renovate is the growing use of "computer
assisted design" programs that help visualize
what a finished project will look like.
As it relates to homeowners, 3D visualization
was first put into play by manufacturers want-
ing to show how their building products and
materials might look on a home. Architects also
used it to speed up designs and blueprints. You
may have seen it used on home improvement
shows like HGTV.
See VIRTUAL, page 16A


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Sebring
Olive Garden at 1696 U.S. 27
N. will open its doors for the
first time at 4 p.m. on
Monday, March 24.
Approximately 165 jobs
will be created with the open-
ing of the 246-seat, 7,441-
square-foot restaurant that is
expected to contribute to the
state's restaurant industry
growth. According to the
National Restaurant
Association's 2008 Industry
Forecast, restaurant sales in
Florida are expected to grow
5 percent this year.
"Sebring's prospering busi-
ness community supports a
steadily growing population
making it the perfect location
for the newest member of
Olive Garden's family of
local restaurants," said
Valerie Insignares, executive
vice president of operations
for Olive Garden.
The Olive Gardeh in
Sebring'has a rustic stone
.exterior, typical of the build-
ings in the Italian countryside,
and an interior accented by
Italian imports designed to
make the dining experience
here a tribute to the restau-
rant's Italian inspiration.
Ceilings supported by
exposed wood beams, stone
and wood accents throughout,
and terra cotta tile highlight
the interior.
"We are extremely excited
to share the breathtaking set-
ting of our new Tuscan
Farmhouse-design Olive
Garden with the Sebring com-
miunity," said Sue

er. "It was designed after our
Riserva di Fizzano restaurant
in Tuscany, Italy, which is
rustic, charming, warm and
beautiful the perfect atmos-
phere to enjoy a genuine
Italian dining experience."
To recognize McCullough's
role as head of the Olive
Garden family in Sebring and
to emphasize the importance
the company places on its
general managers, Olive
Garden honored McCullough
by setting her name in stone.
Travertine marble imported
from Tuscany was chiseled
with McCullough's name and
placed prominently by the
front door.
Most new Olive Garden
restaurants have been built in

Veteres s s Nws

Legion Unit 69 donates Josh Pups


S Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK The Avon
Park American Legion Unit
69, realizing the trauma a
child can have with a hospital
stay, decided to try to make
the stay a little more tolera-
ble.
Members have raised
money to purchase Josh pup-
pies that come with his own
dog house and a. book about
Josh's visit to the hospital and
what the child may expect.
Josh is given to the child
for moral support and comfort
during his stay and even goes
home with them as their new
found friend.
Nancy Galida, auxiliary
president, and Darlene
Watkin, Children and Youth
chairman, took Josh to
Florida Hospital Heartland
Medical Center's Cathy
Albritton, director of market-
ing, to see what the hospital
thought of the new program.
Albritton and Tiffany Bender,
marketing coordinator, met

How to report

the death of a

military retiree

or annuitant
By MARY MARGARET STAIK
Special to the News-Sun
According to the Defense
Finance and Accounting
Service (DFAS) for the
Veterans Administration, in
the event of the death of a
retired U.S. Military person-
nel, DFAS should be notified
by calling 800-269-5170 or
800-321'-1080. The DFAS
will need the decedent's
Social Security number and
the date of death when you
place the call.
The survivors maijl a copy
pf the death certificate that
Short s'the cause of death. to
DFAS, U.S. Military
Retirement Pay, P. O. Box
7130, London, Ky. 40742-
7130, or faxed to 800-469-
6559.
For Annuitants, the address
to send the death certificate is
DFAS, U.S. Military
Retirement Pay, P. O. Box
7131, London, Ky.' 40742-
7131, or faxed to 800-982-
8459.
If the deceased was a
retiree enrolled in the
Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP)
and/or the Retired
Serviceman's Family
Protection Plan (RSFPP),
DFAS will attempt to initiate
pay accotints to the eligible
survivors.
After reporting the death of
the veteran, the survivor will
receive a SF-Form-1174, and
if applicable, SBP/RSFPP-
related forms in the mail
within 7-10 business days of
reporting the death.
Contact the Highlands
County Veteran Services
Office, 7205 S. George Blvd.,
Suite 119. Sebring, FL
33875-5847, or call 402-
6623, for an appointment for
assistance in completing the
forms.
As a, reminder, DFAS
encourages the notification of
Social Security
Administration of the death,
at 800-772-1213 and Defense
Enrollment Eligibility
Reporting System (DEERS)
at 800-538-9552
If the veteran was receiv-
ing a disability compensation
or a survivor was receiving
Dependency Indemnity
Compensation (DIC), contact
the Department of Veteran
Affairs at 800-827-1000.
If the veteran or survivor
was a civil servant or retired
from the Civil Service, the
Office of Personnel
Management (OPM) should
be contacted at the toll-free


asm and want to contact pedi-
atric hospitalist Raymond
Veras and staff to see how is
best to implement the won-
derful program for the young
people.
The Legion Auxiliary have
purchased many Spinoza
bears, another comfort animal
for the hospital, in the past as
well as given many out in the
community and felt that Josh


was yet another program they
would like to fund and pres-
ent.
Thanks to the generosity of
the Galida family with a
$1,000 donation in the name
of their beloved son Todd,
who died in 1985, the pro-
gram got a good start and the
Auxiliary Ladies will raise
the funds needed to purchase
the pups.

quantum leap forward, right
into our living rooms.
Contractors of all types are
fast replacing armloads of
product samples and color
swatches with notebook com-
puters, digital cameras and
state-of-the-art software that
can show customers what
products, materials and colors
will look like on their specific
home.
Here's how it works: A con-
tractor coming to your home
begins by taking a photograph
of the house and transferring-it
into a notebook computer.
With a few clicks and com-
mands, you can see your home
on the screen as it is now -
and, as you watch, as a process
called "masking" begins. The
image takes on various hues of
color where specific products
would be applied, such as on
your existing siding or roof.
You can suggest products and
colors, and see how they'd
look on your home.
Best of all, you can make
instant changes, without a
hammer and a crowbar. With a
click, sky blue changes to for-
est green, sleek siding
becomes sturdy brick, and
"whole-house" changes take
place right before your eyes.
Before you spend the money
on materials, or direct a con-
tractor to purchase those mate-
rials, make sure you are going
with the paint colors, siding
materials and correct wood,
stone or other materials that
you like and will look good.
This process has been avail-
able in larger cities for several
years, but now you can have it
done here in Sebring.

Imaging.
"The programs I use allow
me to repaint, reside and
remake all kinds of surfaces in
a picture image editor so you
can see the changes before lift-
ing a paint- brush.
"For pictures like an exteri-
or of a house, I can show you
what a before and after would
look like with say, new brick
instead of the old gray con-
crete, a new roof and some dif-
ferent siding. Maybe even
some new columns on that old
front porch and a few bushes.
Whatever you can imagine I
can do realistically, -new
materials are just a computer
click away as I take your photo
into the program and 'edit it
with the new materials and


colors. No more second guess-
ing if that color paint will
clash with the front door,
garage or even the neighbors.
"I simply take a picture of
your house or project and
make the changes in the pro-
gram to let you see for your-
self and you get an actual
printed photo of how your
project could look before
spending hundreds or even
thousands of dollars on the
real thing.

POLICY
Continued from 11A
basic home or auto insurance is either not enough
or it excludes coverage," Gaines said and encour-
ages insureds to consider the following examples in
which an umbrella insurance policy becomes real-
ly important
You are in a bad automobile accident and you
seriously injure or cause the death of another per-
son involved in the accident
An elderly neighbor comes over to your home
for a friendly visit and trips and falls on an elevat-
ed section of your walkway, seriously injuring him
or herself
A severe storm, tornado or hurricane causes a
tree on your property to fall, seriously injuring
your neighbor or damaging your neighbor's auto-
mobile
An umbrella policy takes over where the under-.
lying liability from your current insurance limits
leave off. Therefore, Gaines said the best way to
determine the amount of coverage you need from
an umbrella policy is to calculate the amount you
would need if you were sued for everything you
had. Then, consult with an insurance agent to put a
policy in place.
Most Brooke Insurance agencies are independ-
ently-owned, locally-operated franchises of Brooke
Capital Corporation. According to Gaines, this
makes Brooke stand out from other agencies
because having a local agent gives the client the
right combination of tailored, personalized insur-
ance coverage.
Brooke Insurance, Sebring, offers a variety of
top insurance companies to choose from when
selecting insurance plans. The agency provides
extensive research on rates and coverage for its
customers in order to find the right option for them.

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Since the
early 1940s, residents of
South Central Florida have
been aware of the role that the
Avon Park Air Force Range
has played and is playing in
the training of America's mil-
itary.
However, few are familiar
with the role that the Air
Force plays in preserving the
environment and the other
facets of the some 105,000
acres that comprise the mili-
tary installation.
On Saturday, Paul F.
Ebersbach, chief of the
Range's Environmental
Flight, will brief members 'of
the Air Force Association and
the Military Officers
Association of America -on
the activities that his unit is
responsible. These include
the timber management, cattle
grazing, outdoor recreation
including hunting and fishing,
as well as protecting some 10
listed and endangered species
and more than a 100 historic
sites some dating back to the
1800s.
The luncheon will be held
at the Military Sea Services
Museum at Kenilworth
Boulevard and Roseland
Avenue in Sebring with the
cost of the luncheon $15 per
person. Reservations may be
made by calling one of the
following association mem-
bers: Jim Christman, 382-

Fennell, 467-9461.
In a joint statement, AFA
president Bill Hutchison and
MOAA president Roy
Whitton pointed out that "the
public should realize the
importance of the Avon Park
AF Range, not only in
defense of our nation, but
with work they do with the
Range's environment."
Ebersbach, prior to enter-
ing Air Force Civil Service,
served as a commissioned
officer in the Air Force from
1967 to 1973 including serv-
ice in Vietnam with the 820th
Civil 'Engineering Squadron
(Red Horse). A graduate of
New York State College in
Syracuse, N.Y. with a bache-
lors degree in forestry in
1967, he later received a mas-
ters degree in education from
the University of Florida.
During the years he has
served in his present capacity,
he also maintained his reserve
commission as a Mobilization
Individual Augmentee (MIA)
assigned to Headquarters,
USAF in the Pentagon. He
retired from the reserve in
1995 as a lieutenant colonel.
During Ebersbach's tenure
as head of the Environmental
Flight, he and the Range have
received numerous awards
including the Air Force
General Thomas D. White
Award for Outstanding
National Resources
Professional Award as well as
the Florida Division Award of
the Society of American
Foresters C. Huxley Coulter
Award.

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop

My keeper

through day

and night
In early November when
Daylight Saving Time
ended, it took some getting
used to. As darkness
descended an hour earlier
than before, we felt as
though we had lost time.
Contrarily, Daylight
Saving Time makes us feel
like the day is longer -
even though we are still
operating within a set 24
hours.
Regardless of that truth,
we long for more daylight
and we get our wish today.
We have set our clocks one
hour forward springing
ahead to gain an hour of
daylight.
Children can play out-
doors a little longer after
school though we have
our concerns for them
leaving for school when
the early morning hours
are still shroud in darkness.
Nevertheless, daylight is
welcome.
Even people who have
had to adjust to living
alone either through the
death of a spouse or
divorce will often say
they do fine throughout the
day; but it's the night time
that is hard to get through.
Not too long ago, one of
my grandchildren and I
had a conversation about
light and dark. He admitted
to being afraid of the dark.
That fear was keeping him
trapped and I longed to
help him overcome it.
So, we opened the Bible
to Psalm 139: lib 12,
NKJV, where it says,
"Even the night shall be
light about me; indeed, the
darkness shall not hide
from You, but the night
shines as the day; the dark-
ness and the light are both
alike to You."
My grandchild's face
seemed to light up with
this new found truth. We
were able to talk about
moving out of the darkness
of fear and into God's light
of truth.
Then we talked about
our powerful God who
made the world and every-
thing in it and how
Psalm 139 tells us how we
are "fearfully and wonder-
fully made."
Then I posed this ques-
tion to him.
"Do you think our God
who is so powerful can
keep us safe in the night as
well as the day?"
How precious to see his
face light up with under-
standing and a new meas-
ure of faith. Now that
verse is highlighted in his
personal Bible and is one
he can turn to for comfort
and courage.
Our lives may seem like
they go through periods of
longer dark days before
they finally break through
into the light again. But,
the key is to remember that
the darkness and light are
both alike to the One who
keeps us in his everlasting
arms.
I love Psalm 121 that
reminds us that the Lord is
our keeper. He keeps me in
slumber and wakefulness -
in darkness and in light.

Bill Snyder

honored at

HAL reception
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Bill Snyder's
sculptures are executed
expressing speed and move-
ment that leaves you with the
sense of fluidity and simplici-
ty on line.
As an observer, what you
will take with you is not the
particular, (even if his execu-
tion is of high accomplish-
ment) but the essence of one
of the noblest animals around
us.
SHis paintings are portraits
of dignity and strength, assur-
ing us of a continuation of the
relationship that humans have
had with horses for thousands
of years.
Three hundred was the
magic number for the
Highlands Art League during
Snyder's reception last week.
More than 300 people came
to view Snyder's equine
sculptures and paintings and
more than $300 was raised
from the raffle featuring a
donated, framed giclee print
of his painting, "Mom's
Pride". The raffle will contin-
ue until March 21; tickets can
be purchased at The Yellow
House Galley, 1989 Lakeview

Volunteers' help with composters means another workshop is on the way


The staff of the
Highlands Soil and
Water Conservation
District held a
home composting
workshop in
November 2007. It
was well attended
and the participants
asked for more
workshops in the
future. HSWCD
staff told the group
that they would put


News
From The
Watershed
Corine Burgess


on more workshops, but they
needed some help with build-
ing the home composing
units. Seven people stepped
up after the workshop and
offered their services.
With the assistance of
these community spirited
men and woman, the
HSWCD staff intends to host
another home composting
workshop this spring.
This fine group of volun-
teers joined together for a
brainstorming session on
building home composters
and came up with efficient,
cost and time saving ideas for
the design and construction
of these units.
With the help of these vol-
unteers, Highlands Soil and


Water Conservation
District may be able
tO supply 50 com-
posters for our next
workshop.
Thus far, the group
has put in more than
50 hours and plans to
come in every
Wednesday and work
until the goal of 50
composer kits has
been met. Once they
build these units,


HSWCD will put on a work-
shop and supply anyone who
is interested in composting a
"composting kit" for a small
fee, which will cover the cost
of the materials.
It is so refreshing to see
people working in our com-
munity that want to be a part
of keeping our county beauti-
ful and environmentally
friendly.
These men and woman
come out on their own time,
expecting no pay or compen-
sation, simply to perform a
task that needs to be done.
They want to be a part of the
solution to help the environ-
ment.
Our volunteers are all
practicing composters and

upcoming workshop.


they believe in the concept of
producing less waste and
using the garbage we do pro-
duce for a good purpose.
These good folks also help
in other areas. When the need
to put up a portable shed to
house our composters came
up and county staff was too
busy to assist, guess who


came to our rescue? That's
right, our volunteers came
out and the shed was con-
structed in three hours. So
whoever said "you can't get
something for nothing" has-
n't met these people!
We are very proud of and
pleased with our volunteers.
They always show up with a


cheerful "can do attitude"
and share knowledge and
ideas with us and each other.
They are skilled folks and we
even have a couple of car-
penters among them. These
composters are going to be
great!
This community-minded
group is made up of Carl and


Anna Fette, Eric Maron,
Gary Pendrak, Bud Wallen,
Gerald Hibbs and Ed
Cunningham.
The staff from Highlands
Soil and Water Conservation
District certainly appreciates
the help. We would not be
able to supply Highlands
County residents with home
composters without their
assistance.
The hours and labor these
people are putting into this,
with expectations of nothing
in return, is refreshing.
In this world where a com-
mon attitude seems to be
"what's in it for me?" it is
good to know that there are
folks around who want to
contribute to society for no
gain and make the world a
better place.
Thank you so much to each
of you volunteers; we could-
n't do it without you!

Spring has sprung at Highlands Hammock


Spring has sprung and it's
a wonderful time to take a
walk through the Hammock.
Bright green leaflets are pop-
ping out on the sweetgum
and hickory trees, while the
oaks and pines drop their
rusty yellow pollen. Last
year's leaves are piled high
under the oaks and are a
delight to rustle or kick
through just like you did
when you were a kid!
Come hike the trails, but
this time let the kids decide
where you will go and for
how long. Let them be your
nature guide and see what
they can find. Borrow some
binoculars at the ranger sta-
tion and try to get a glimpse
of the brightly colored birds
flitting'through the new
greenery. Listen to the
buzzing high-pitched sounds
of the colorful Northern
Parulas or the sing-song of
the brilliantly colored cardi-
nals.
Lie down on a blanket or
in the grass of the orange
groves, watching out for fire
ants, of course, and marvel
over the soaring flights of the
vultures overhead. Do the
same in the picnic area circle
and see the Swallow-tailed
kites swooping and diving far
above you. Watch to see if
they are carrying any nesting
material or just listen for the
high-pitched whistle of their
calls.
Walk silently down the
Cypress Swamp trail and
over the drak waters of
Charlie Bowlegs creek. Look
for the dizzy skating of water
bugs, the plip-plop of frogs,
and of course the barely per-
ceptible ripples of alligators
soaking in the slow moving
waters. How many can you
see in the shallow water?
Look high into the feathery
green of the cypress trees for
warblers, hawks, and ibis.
Stop at the Ancient
Hammock trail and walk this
forest of large, thick oaks.
- Look for-grasshoppers or spi-
ders while listening for the


rustle of a deer
walking quietly
through the under-
brush. Go see the
Big Oak on the Big
Oak Trail. Have
you forgotten just
how large it is?
Take photos of your
kids stretched
around this ancient,
immense, dinosaur
of a tree. They'll
come back some-


The Real
Florida
Dorothy Harris


day with their own children
to do the same!
Let them lead over to the
Hickory Trail on the thin
boardwalk that spans a sea-
sonal wetland. Can you find
the Tupelo trees? How niany
lizards can they count? Do
they see the Lizard's Tail
plants flowering in the rich
soils? Take this trail to the
end and let the family stand
inside the burned out oak.
Have you forgotten it's there?
Highlands Hammock is
filled with amazing wonders
just waiting for your family!


The weather is per-
fect and there are
no mosquitoes due
to the dryness.
Come re-experience
your local state
park. Bring the
kids, the dog, the
bikes, their friends
and picnic or treat
them to lunch at the
Hammock Inn.
Bring your meat
and do some


grilling while the kids play
on the playground. Take a
break from work with your
friends and have lunch in the
restaurant or enjoy it out-
doors on one of the picnic
tables. Get some Wild
Orange ice cream or a
Popsicle and savor it while
you soak tip the beautiful
surroundings.
As always, park admission
is just $4 per vehicle (up to
eight people) and best of all,
we are right here in town so
you won't waste a lot of gas
giving your family a day of

recreation. Better yet, spring
break is coming up and your
kids would love to go camp-
ing. Imagine sitting around
the campfire and roasting
hotdogs or making gooey
smores' while you listen to
the owls hooting in the dis-
tance. Some campsites are
still available, but make your
reservations soon as we're
sure to fill up. Hope to see
you soon out here in "the
REAL Florida."

classical music and music theory. A third gen-
eration music store owner, he owned and oper-
ated a store in Sebring for nine years. It was
here that he was discovered by organ manu-
facturers such as Baldwin, General Music,
Thomas, and Roland and hired as regional


concert artist.
He has since sold his
Sebring business hnd re-
S opened in Lake Wales. The
retail business keeps him busy,
but he always makes time to
perform.
He is known throughout cen-
Fielder
tral Florida for his ability to
play the organ and for his great sense of
humor.

The other yellow house 'filled with great books'


The Sebring Friends of the
Library Bookstore, 117 E.
Center Ave., have housed
some wonderful books since
it was purchased in 1994. In
1998 the Rotarians painted
the house yellow and the
building became known as
"the little yellow house," not
to be confused with The
Yellow House at the
Highlands Art League com-
pound on Lakeview Drive.
Ours is filled with great
books; theirs with great art.
As one visitor said this
past week, "This is such an
interesting place with all
these little rooms and cubby-
holes filled with books. I
never realized it was so big
inside!" ... and that is music
to our ears as we strive to
keep the shelves packed with
interesting books donated by
local citizens and the library.
Besides the usual fiction,
non-fiction, children's books,
puzzles and magazines we
have a few vintage items e.g.
'older collectible books'
behind the desk; a card table


Notes From The Friends
Of The Sebring Library
Deane McArthur


displaying Life magazines
from the 1960s '80s and a
box of original magazine ads
of cars from the 1940s '80s.
In the 'fireplace' room is a
box of older sheet music
some dating back to World
War II.
Another feature is our for-
eign language area books
in Spanish, German, French,
etc. These are located to the
right of the fireplace. We also
have Bibles in Spanish.
It has been three weeks
since my column has
appeared and the Friends
have been very busy. On Feb.
19, the monthly board meet-
ing was held at the library
and two new members, Kathy
Acker and Joy Belcher were
welcomed by President
Dottee Cohen. The usual
reports were given.
The annual Piatagorsky
Concert, sponsored by the


Friends of the Library, took
place Feb 24 at the Sebring
Library. Although attendance
was not as high as we had
hoped, those who came were
treated to a beautiful concert
by two very charming ladies,
flutist Lorna McGhee and
harpist Heidi Krustzen.
Again, the bookstore took
part in the monthly 'Gallery
Walk' the last Thursday of
each month and the theme
was racing cars because of
the historic race cars that
roared into the circle as part
of the race car activities dur-
ing March. Our store was
well decorated and flew the
black and white checkered
flag that Linda Kegley of LK
Gallery had given to the
stores participating. Despite
being a very cold night, we
had so many visitors to our
bookstore; soie came for the
vintage car ads, others just to

A Friday night Pirate sweep in Sebring


High School Baseball

Blue Streak bats stymied in shutout

SEBRING Braden
River starting pitcher
Vincent Keen had it all on
Sebring Friday night, shut-
ting them out with a com-
plete game 4-0 win to keep
the Pirates atop the district
standings.
Sticking.with just a fast-
ball and a steady diet of
curves, Keen kept the Blue
Streak bats in check.
"He just kept hitting his
spots," first baseman Tony
Vazquez said. "He kept us
off balance all night."

"They just outplayed us,"
he continued. "Our kids are

The loss kept Sebring out

much.

Rewis said. "You'd lile to
be in the top two, so this
wasn't really that important
since this is a marathon and
not a sprint.
"And it's sometimes easi-
er being the road team espe-
cially on -bad weather
nights," he continued. "As
the home team, and with the
weather we've been having,
the kids have to worry about
working the field, getting it
ready, bringing the tarp on,


taking the tarp off. So
there's sometimes an advan-

The traveling will have to
wait, however, as another
district test comes to town
in the form of cross-county
rival Avon Park Tuesday
night for a 5 p.m. contest.
"It will be a good game,"
Rewis said. "We'll have to
hit a little better because
they've shown they can hit
us. And with us and Avon
Park, you just never know."

Special to the News-Sun-
This has to be a first in
Sebring Senior Softball
League history, but it hap-
pened Thursday, March 6 at
the Complex.
The opposing team, the
Reflections, serenaded
Discount Aluminum's Ken
Crandal .by singing "Happy
Birthday" to him.
Tough guys with soft
hearts, nevertheless, back to
business and Reflections
topped Discount Aluminum
22-10.
Reflections' top hitters
were Kyle Saunders going 3-
for-4 with two home runs and
Ron Lewis 3-for-4 including a
home run.
Joe Hyzny, Bill Yeager and
Brian Pluta all went 4-for-4,
John Kloet hit 3-for-3 and Cal
Bready 3-for-4.
Discount Aluminum's
offense included Tom Walsh
hitting 4-for-4, Jim Hensley
and, Dave Wagner 3-for-4 and
Ken Crandal 2-for-3.
The Silent
Salesman/Klingon game
turned out to be a contest to
see which team could do the
mostest with the leastest.
Klingons only had ten play-
ers, and the Salesman had to
play their fulltime scorekeep-
er to field eleven men -
Klingons prevailed with the
score of 16-6.
Their best offensive players
were Don Day -for-4 with a
double and a triple and Harold
Dinel 4-for-4 with a triple.
Dick Schiltz hit two dou-
bles, Russ Moody and Ross
"Spider" McMinn each had a'
double.
For the Salesman it was a
day of inept fielding, hitting
and base running.
Six batters did manage two
hits each; Mike Jurmu drove
one to the fence for a home
run and Jerry Johnston con-
nected for a double.

against Desoto's Mital Patel
(6-1, 6-3) in semis and
Hardee's Dylan Justice (6-1,
6-2) in prelims.
Sebring head coach, Jack
Holt, was pleased with what
the wins mean for his team.
"We finished second last
year, and lost four players to
graduation," he said. "We're
mostly juniors and sopho-
mores now, so I hope we can
be a good team this year, but
we should be real strong over
the next two years as well."

The Lady Streaks tried

enth, but to no avail.
"One bad inning came back
to haunt us, but we'll bounce
back," head coach Lee Tolar
rationalized. "We showed
guts and determination."

Salesman's best hitters off
stride.
The Rebels and Highlands'
Independent Bank Avon Park
had a dueling bout ending 9-6
with the Rebels victors.
The Bank held the lead
until the top of the seventh,
then the Rebels took over by
tying the score in the frame,
then scored three more runs in
the top of the eighth and shut
the Bank down from there.
Rebels top hitter was anag-
er Stan Turl, going 3-for-3
with a double.
Six other players con-
tributed with 2-for-3 hits.
The Bank's best offensive
players were Stu Hayner and
Charley Williams producing
three hits each.
Regardless of the score, it
was an exciting game for the
players.
A big surprise was when
the top team and the bottom
team in the league standings
met on the diamond and the
bottom team panned out to be
some pretty tough competi-
tion.
Such was the match-up of
Royal Palm and Highlands
Independent Bank Sebring.
Royal Palm had it a little
rough when the Bank was
leading 9-8 at the end of four
innings.
Palms took over and scored
seven runs in the top of the
eighth to clinch the game 22-
14.
The Banks'. best offensive
play was a hom erun driven in
by their newest player, Don
Ward.
Palms' Bob Weiss and Bob
Fox each hit a home run,
Charlie Quinn hit a triple and
Ross Anderson contributed 4-
for-4, while Jim Longman and
Mo Pier each had 4-for-5 hits.
Tuesday, March 4, was a
time when the wind played a
real number on the Complex
ballfields during :Sebring,
Ser)ior Leagueplay. ;
Silent Salesman ruined


Royal Palm's first-place
league standing by beating
them once, but failed to win a
second time.
The Salesman jumped off
to a 9-2 lead after two
innings, but Palms tied it up
with seven runs in the third.
The Salesman stayed close
to the number-one team until
the seventh inning when the
Palms scored five unanswered
runs.
Two leading scorers for the
Salesman were Mike Jurmu
and Don Cunningham each
batting 3-for-4 including a
home run.
Fred Moore singled 3-for-4
times up.
Palm's consistent top play-
ers were Charlie Quinn belt-
ing out a home run and four
RBI, and Bob Weiss also
homered with 3 RBI.
Tom Gaiownik went 4-for-
4 earning 4 RBI, Ross
Anderson and Bob Fox each
had 3-for-4 and Joe Healey
had 3-for-3 hits making a
final score of 17-13.
Klingons held the advan-
tage' over Highlands
Independent Bank of Avon
Park with a 7-0 shutout.
Mafvin Strope had three
hits,'including a triple.
Two others to hit a triple
were Don Day and Harold
Dinel.


Klingons also executed
three double plays which held
the Bank's runners to reach
no farther than second base.
Reflections swamped the
Rebels 31-6.
Their batters who can run
the score up quickly were
Kyle Saunders banging 4-for-
5 with two home runs and
David Kieffer 5 -or-5, includ-
ing a triple and a double.
Joe Hyzny hit 3-for-4,
including a triple, John Kloet
3-for-4 with a double, and
Gary Vanthournout 4-for-5
with a double, Ron Lewis 5-
for-5 and Wayne Hill 4-for-4.
The Rebels just could not
put a stop to Reflections hit-
ting, running, scoring or
catching for a 31-6" loss.
Players' efforts for the
Rebels defense were Elwood
Black and Don Purdy each
hitting 2-for-3 wifh -a hdme
run.
Other notables. were Diz;
Jones ha\ ing 3-for3,' Jint
Strietzel and Tony Caristo 2-
for-3 and Jim MNunroe 2-for-2.
Discount Aluminum was
credited with a win due to the
forfeit by Highlands
Independent Bank Sebring.
On such an unpredictable
day, weather-wise as Tuesday,
a lot of miscues on the field
could be truthfully blamed on
the wind.

2007.
