SHS students get gory to kick off

Students at Sebring High School start-
ed Science Week with pictures of
crime scenes, courtesy of Forensic
Investigator Jeff Fennell from the
Highlands County Sheriff's Office.
Fennell's Tuesday .visit will be fol-
lowed by a medical examiner on Wednesday and
a pathologist on Thursday as the students delve
deeper into the world many of them are reading
about in the books of Alane Ferguson, who
writes forensic-type murder mysteries targeting
a high school audience.
Ferguson is scheduled to visit Highlands
County in April, and her books are available in'
the library to check out.
"These books are a little gory, but still fasci-
nating," said SHS sophomore Caitlin Smith.
"These are fast paced-books and are hardto put
down."
Science Week events are open to all students
during-lunch and have been promoted tli! .u _'1
the science department.
"Older students may want to make careers in
it, or they have medical interest," SHS science
department chairwoman Angie Mann said.
"Kids are really trying to find out what they
want to major in."
Senior Matt Musto said he has seen the type
of stuff Fennell talked about on television and
wondered what it would be like.
"I've thought about doing this kind of work,"
he said. "It's kind of interesting, kind of like
how they do it on TV."
The CBS show CSI:, short for Crime Scene
Investigation, is based on the type of work
Fennell does as a forensic investigator.
Fennell showed pictures of everything from
murders and suicides to drug investigations
during his 40-minute presentation.
Decomposition is chemistry and bullet tra-
jectory is physics, said SHS physics and chem-

istry teacher Venessa Sinness.
"It gives them a real-life example of how
they can apply science to a real-life job," she
said.
"My kids are all in 11th and 12th grades. If
they are in honors or (Advanced Placement)
chemistry, they could go into this field."
While Fennell turned quite a few stomachs
during the lunch-time presentation, some stu-
dents were unable to look away from the slides.
It brought the Ferguson books to life for
sophomore Kailanie Perez.
"(The books) give a visual picture of what
goes on in an autopsy and the jobs of the dif-


ferent people that work with forensics," sle
said.
Fennell literally gave visual pictures of an
autopsy, to the excitement of a number of stu-
dents.
Junior Spencer Caton said he enjoyed "all
the, detailed pictures explaining the different
stories (Fennell) has heard through his career."
"I'm thinking about going into crime; scene .
type stuff," he said. "I came to see'all the field
shots and what is needed to become an investi-
gator."
About 120 students showed up for the pres-
entation during the two lunch shifts.

Bloom blossoms at


AP Youth Academy


Earns Employee-of
the Year recognition
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
i. l ; ,p l, :,, il' !. r "' e II ,il '.. ,I
AVON PARK Out at the
Avon Park Youth Academy
the work is day to day as ded-
icated individuals return
every morning to chip away
at the sullen, untrusting,
sometimes seething, always
self-centered attitudes of
delinquent adolescents.
It is important work, but
draining and repetitive. It
takes special people to do
well.
One such person is Amy
Bloom, whose low-key title
of administrative assistant
doesn't begin to describe the
range of her responsibilities.
Those who work with her,
however, are very aware of


her value, breaking into
smiles as they rush to say
something good about her -
which is only natural, since
they also voted her Employee
of the Year.
Bloom serves at the very
heart of the academy. She is
director Pete Zeegers secre-
tary, and mans an office on
the main hall of the adminis-
tration building just by the
main gate.
Not much goes by that she
doesn't notice.
Not much happens she
can't resolve.
"She's the one running the
compound, she's awesome,"
Tracy Mitchell said. Mitchell
is the accreditation manager
and responsible for quality
assurance. The academy has

Cool urges commission


to get tough on bailout


State pledged to help
Highlands and others
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin .shlttt@niewis~ii .coin
SEBRING County
Administrator Carl Cool said
Gov. Ch'arlie Crist would vio-
late state law if he fails to
include $26 million in fiscally
constrained county bailout
funds in Florida's 2008-09
budget expected to be final-
ized in April.
He. wants the Highlands
County commission and leg-
islative delegation to take
Crist to task for withholding
money that is supposed to
hold harmless about 30 quali-
fying counties.
"We need to respond to our
state legislators," Cool said
Tuesday, addressing a letter to
commission from Crist to
Rep. Baxter Troutman from


which Chairman Edgar
Stokes read. "No! No! No!
The state law says 'this.'"
The issue is timing.
Crist's letter suggests the
fiscally constrained funds
would be in the 2009-10
budget.
His argument, Cool
explained, is the state cannot
approve funding for unknown
amounts. The amounts are
unknown because the tax rolls
won't be certified until July,
long after the state is operat-
ing under a new budget.
That's too late for the coun-
ty, which must deal with the
ramifications of Amendment
I (an additional $25,000
homestead exemption applied
from $50,000-75,000, Save
Our Homes portability and
other relief), which passed
Jan. 29 but is retroactive to

Commission


still stuck


on stimulus

Possible suspension

of impact fees center

of Tuesday's session
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin .shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING During a few hours
of stimulating economic discussion
Tuesday, a lot was said about sus-
pending fees, attracting construction
potential and borrowing from tomor-
row to spend today.
None of the commissioners, how-
ever, proposed a moratorium on
spending as a means to save for the
rainy day that will be next year's
budget cycle as taxable property val-
ues are expected to decrease, the
economy continues to recede and the
effects of Amendment 1 will be real-
ized.
"I thought we just appointed a
committee," Commissioner Andrew
Jackson said after Commissioner C.
Guy Maxcy jump-started the local
stimulus package discussion by float-
ing the impact fee suspension bal-
loon. "I'd rather fast track the com-
'mittee than fly by the seat of our
pants."
The board recently appointed a
cross section of county residents and
business leaders ranging from home- -
owners to bank presidents to continu-
ously review the county's impact fees
on a long-term basis.
SThe fees, implemented to help the
County comply with state-mandated
concurrency rules, are barely a year
old.
They were adopted at 25 percent of
what a 'consultant determined was
necessary for Highlands quality of
life and levels of service at the time
of the study about two years ago.
The fees resisted by the real
estate, construction and development
industries who warned a year and a
half ago that "now" was not the right
time to add several thousand dollars
to the cost of new home construction

4-H agent


has seen


growth,

challenges


Butler nearing

first anniversary

By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphpy@ newssisn.corn
SEBRING Friday will
mark the first year in April
Butler's stint as 4-H agent in
Highlands County.
Whe Butler, 31, took the
job it "ad been vacant for
years. Quickly, she found that
it wasn't your run-of-the-mill
9-to-5 job.
"At first it was kind of
overwhelming," she said.
"But it's been interesting."
Butler took what can chari-
tably be, called an unlikely
path to her current job. She
earned a college degree in
criminology at Florida State
University with a specialty in
security administration. Her
goal then was to either attend
law school or work with a
large company doing work
with security systems.
She was told that the best
path to that goal would be to
become a police officer, and
so she did, serving as a
deputy sheriff for eight years
with both Leon and
Okeecfobee counties. In that
position, however, she devel-
oped an interest in working
with children.
So when she got married
and moved to Highlands
County, she immediately

'At first it was kind
*0
of overwhelming. But
it's been interesting.'

APRIL BUTLER
county 4-H agent
- starting looking for a job that
would 9ive her that opportu-
nity.
And she's taken advantage
of it. Over the past year she
has overseen an enrollment
increase of 15 percent, has
*worked to start new programs
and resurrect others, and she
has worked to involve as
many kids as she can.
"I want them to have buy-
in," she said. "I listen to kids
tell me they wouldn't have
dome something if it wasn't
for 4-H."
But with half of 4-H's
funding coming from the
county and the other half
from the state, Butler also has
the looming specter of budget
cuts to worry about. She
acknowledges that her pro-
gram could be one of the first
on the chopping block.
"When they start talking
about cuts; they look at com-
munity programming first,"
she said.
However, Highlands
County 4-H does have a
"great foundation" that has
more than $35,000 in fund-
ing, putting this county in
better shape than some of its
neighbors.
"We're fortunate to have
something to fall back on,"
she said. "I know some fel-
low agents that could be in
worse trouble. We've just got
to sit back and wait."
She has big plans for her
secondyear, including start-
ing a weakling 4-H day camp
in the summer that will be
open for all kids, both in and
out of the 4-H program. She
is also looking to grow 4-H
membership even further.
"We did good with 15 per-


cent last year," she said, "but
for the past 10 years the num-
bers have been kind of stag-
nant."
Another of Butler's goals
for next year is to recruit
more adult volunteers into the
program. She is looking for
people with expertise in
sewing, woodworking, pho-
tography, and a variety of
other skills.
For more information
about 4-H, to join or to vol-
unteer, Butler can be contact-
ed at 402-6540 or mailed at
aprilbutlcr@ufl.edu.

explains to Elvis, also known as Ted Key, how he will help the club with their benefit concert
Friday at SFCC. All proceeds from the Famous Faces legends tribute will help the local Boys
and Girls club.


Famous Faces will sing to aid



Highlands Boys and Girls Club


South Florida Community College Auditorium
at 7 p.m. Friday.
Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door.
Tickets can be purchased at either Sebring
or Avon Park Chambers of Commerce,
Highlands Independent Bank locations and
Budget Bi-Rite Insurance, 1500 U.S. 27 S in
Avon Park, or by calling 452-1402.
About 75 boys and girls are helped by the
organization on a day-to-day basis, Randall
said.
Since he has taken over as the executive
director, the club has been able to cut expens-
es by re-examining operations and taking busi-
ness collaborations back to the local commu-
nity, Randall said.
The majority of children the local club
serves'are from ages 7 to 14.
"These are very formative years when
examples and influences have an impact." he
said. "Your help today will provide hope for
tomorrow."
Other fundraisers on the drawing board are
a golf-a-thon and hot air balloon fest.
These fundraisers are the difference
between the club staying open and closing,
Randall said.

The Famous Faces legends tribute will fea-

Gladys Knight, Aretha Franklin, Bette Midler,

Ted Key, playing Elvis, came up with the
fundraising idea.
"It's about boys and girls it's for the
kids," he said while on a tour of the Boys &
Girls Club facilities in Avon Park. "We don't
do enough for them. They are our one true nat-
ural resource."
- Wally- :,fRaall, executive director for the
Highlands County Boys & Girls Club, was
more than pleased when approached by Key.
"The Boys & Girls Club is a community-
based organization and the ones that thrive are
the ones that are supported by the communi-
ties," Randall said. "We get some help from
the county and the city of Sebring, but the
fundraisers are absolutely pivotal."

Beware: There be


pirates on the horizon


'Pirates of Penzance'
nears opening night
at Little Theatre
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley @newssun.com
SEBRING With its sails
full of wind the wind cre-
ated by 33 voices singing in
unison the ship carrying
the Pirates of Penzance is
bearing down on the
Highlands Little Theater,
aiming for the best port on
Lake Jackson where a band of
lovable, if hopelessly incom-
petent, pirates may land.
The play opens March 28.
Keep in mind these pirates
have no wish to be merciless.
The thought of an orphan
often makes them cry.
They also love poetry, and
spare those weaker than
themselves.
In other words, as pirates,
they sink, er, stink, er, are no
good.
Now as it happens, one of
these trying-to-be-dastardly
pirates, an apprentice named
Frederick, hates being a pirate
so much that the day he turns
21.he immediately vows, with
apologies, to exterminate the
entire band.
The pirates, being more
happy-go-lucky than sensible,
wish their former comrade
well.
"Let our deaths be as swift,
and painless as you can con-
veniently make them," says
the Pirate King, as he says
goodbye.
But, just as these pirates
have feelings for others, so
they expect others to have
feelings for them.
Lie to escape their clumsy
clutches and they become
incensed, determined to
exact a revenge.
And revenge is exactly
what the father of a bevy of
beautiful maidens brings
upon himself when he lies to
the pirates as they swoop
upon his daughters deter-

I *nll~ll~l 111


mined to marry them in a
multiple wedding on the spot.
He tells them he is an
orphan so he and his daugh-
ters will be spared.
Unfortunately for the
father, who happens to be a
very modern major general,
Frederick who has allied
himself with the general and
the police in his campaign to
exterminate the pirates dis-
covers a terrible complication
to his life shortly afterwards.
Having been born on a
Leap Year day in 1879, he has
only had five birthdays, and
so must continue serving as a
pirate apprentice until his
21st birthday, which won't
take place until 1940.
This means he must do his
duty to the pirates, and tell
them about the general's lie,
even though he is now
engaged to the general's eld-
est daughter and they 'have
sworn to be faithful until they
are married, and even after.
Being told the truth, the
pirates vow revenge.
Not to worry. The "Pirates
of Penzance" is a comedy
from beginning to end.
This play calls for a pirate
ship to dock in the first act.
So a pirate ship has been
built, complete with masts,
sails, a cannon, a cabin and a
poop deck. It is sturdy enough
for full-grown men to climb
on and in.
Following'the show it will
be available through a draw-
ing to turn an ordinary back-
yard into a child's imagina-
tion station.
Tickets will be sold before
each performance for a
chance at the drawing, to be
held after the last perform-
ance on April 13. The winner
need not be present.
The tickets are $10 apiece,
buy 10 and get one free.
Call 382-2525 from 10 a.m.
to 2 p.m. Monday-Friday and
Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. for
tickets.

Keeping things



in the sunshine

Over the last several weeks, as the county and the
city of Avon Park have gone. about their respective
searches for a county administrator and a city police
chief, we have received letters from readers question-
ing the processes, especially as they regard to
Florida's Government in the Sunshine Law.
We've looked into each situation in order to answer
those questions.
In fact, the two governments are using different
procedures. This means the rules are different for
each.
Because the county commissioners created a formal
search committee with the authority to make deci-
sions to act on its behalf, that committee must
operate in the sunshine with noticed, recorded meet-
ings open to the public whenever it makes a decision.
This is why, now that the field of candidates has
been winnowed down to a manageable size so the
county commissioners can make an informed deci-
sion, the search committee has been disbanded, so its
members may return to civilian status and speak their
minds as individuals.
The 16-person committee tightened the field to 14
applicants, with five of those considered strong can-
didates.
The county commission, its members now active in
the final stages of the hiring process, of course
remains subject to the sunshine laws and so must
make its final decision openly.
In Avon Park, however, the hiring of a police chief
falls to the city manager as a matter of established
policy, not to the city council. That means the selec-
tion is routine city business, so the process is not cov-
ered by sunshine laws.
There was some initial confusion when interim city
manager Sarah Adelt put together an ad hoc group of
volunteers willing to advise her.
But the committee was not imbued with any power
or decision-making responsibility. Instead, its mem-
bers were simply available to Adelt for advice as she
interviewed candidates and reviewed resumes.
Because the committee advised only, and was not
appointed by the city council, that means sunshine
laws did not apply and the early interviews of police
chief candidates did not have to be public.
While Avon Park was not mandated to open its hir-
ing process, however, it did public notice the inter-
View dates and release candidate resumes to the press.
Three final candidates remain. After background
checks, and psychological profiles, Adelt will make
the final decision on her own after one last, private
interview.


The power i

It is a special
week. It is the week
that we remember
what has occurred
not only in the past,
but celebrates what
is occurring right
now. We remember
the life that was Mul
lived here on the L
earth and celebrate
the life that can be
given through Him.
It certainly is a special week.
I have always loved the
holiday seasons. In my fami-
ly, it has always been a time
to come together, from far
and near. It has been a time
to relate to one another and
to share life. When I was
younger, I could not quite
understand why we just
could not celebrate like this
all year round. Why can we
not become excited to see
one another and share what
was occurring in our lives
with people who are close to
us everyday?
As. an adult now, I sit and
wonder the exact same thing.
There is nothing in this week
of March that makes it more
special than the next except
for the fact that we choose to
remember the life that Jesus
had lived. There is not one
day that is an hour longer,
nor does this week have any
special power in and of
itself. Yet, the man that we
remember, the God that we
serve, has all the power with-
in Him.
It has taken me quite some
time to grasp this fact. I


s still with us

know I do not have
a complete handle
on it still, but it cer-
tainly amazes me all
at the same time.
SThe power that has
created the entire
world, the power
rpny's that has raised Jesus
.aw from the dead, is an
incredible power.
ey Murphy This same power is
now at work in
those who are following after
Him, those who are doing
His purpose. To think that
you and I in Christ have this
very same power living
inside of us in mind-blowing.
It is with that power that
we celebrate on Sunday. It is
the power that has forgiven
us, not because of anything
we did, but because of His
great love. It is with that
power that we come together
and share life with one
another. The best thing about
this is the power does not
cease to exist on the follow-
ing Monday morning. Rather,
it is continually at work in all
of us. For that reason, we
need to celebrate and to give
thanks. For that reason, we
are able to greet each other
on Sunday morning with "He
is risen!" and "He is risen,
indeed!" Perhaps, we will
greet each other in the same
way on that Monday morn-
ing. For, after all, His power
is still with us!

Reiterating the facts
Editor:
Historian Lewis Fanning has stated, "it
was not the Hanoi communists who won
the war, but rather the American
Congress that lost it." Further, history
has directly attributed the fall of Saigon
in 1975 to the cessation of American aid.
According to Henry Kissinger, "Years
Of Renewal," negotiations with Hanoi
actually went on for four years. Hanoi's
unwavering terms were that the United
States commit itself, at the outset of any
negotiations, to a fixed deadline for the
withdrawal of American forces. (Can you
say the Democrat Congress and Iraq?)
This schedule would remain in effect
regardless of what happened in the nego-
tiations with respect to other issues or on
the military front.
When we could not achieve a negotiat-
ed peace agreement, President Nixon
implemented as much of our program as
was possible unilaterally, strengthening
the Vietnamese forces, withdrawing well
over 500,000 troops by the end of his
first term and leaving some thirty thou-
sand Americans in Vietnam no longer
..engaged in ground combat. The final .
withdrawal was more of an evacuation
up to the point when Saigon fell. At
every step in negotiations the so called
"peace movement" was passionately and
sometimes violently opposed. They want-
ed total abdication. The anti-war move-
ment argued that such an abdication
purged the United States of its hubris and
the American administration of its blood
lust which they claimed was the real
obstacle to peace.
SIn a few months after the Paris agree-
ment was signed the Democrat Congress
enacted the Case-Church Amendment
prohibiting direct U.S. military involve-
ment in Southeast Asia. The Amendment
passed the House by 27.8 to 124 and in
the Senate 64 to 26. There is no question
which party was responsible. A signifi-
cant problem, of course, was the morality
of breaking the assurances and trust
America held with an ally. The Paris
Peace Accord promised the ability to
defend the treaty by continued economic
and military assistance. All of which was
pledged to our Vietnamese friends. When
the precarious peace wrought by the
Paris Agreement was challenged, the
United States cut off military and eco-
nomic assistance to the very people
whom we had given every encourage-
ment to count on our protection.
Subsequently, over two million people


were annihilated in Vietnam, Laos and
Cambodia. Undoubtedly, this is one of
the reasons other countries and European
friends mistrust us.
In the final stages, the Democrat
Congress continued to cut budget
requests and delayed action through
hearings and Appropriation Committee
revues. In fact, the day after Saigon fell
the House of Representatives refused to
approve a request by President Ford for
$327 million for the care and transporta-
tion of Indochinese refugees.
When it comes to Vietnam, the coun-
terculture of the far left first paralyzed
and then overwhelmed good men on both
sides. These same people are around
today, burning the flag, protesting the
war, traducing President Bush and hating
American principles.
The dangers we face today effect our
national security, homeland and all fami-
lies. Mistakes made in 1973 resulted int
over two million Asian lives, the ones
made this November might make 9/11
look like a insignificant event.
During six years of the Vietnam war
an American fighter pilot was shot down,
seriously injured, held prisoner and tor-
tured repeatedly. For all that time, even
while it appeared as though he would
eventually be killed, he remained proud
of his country and military service.
Fortunately, when some POW's were
returned home he was one of them. His
name is Lieutenant Commander John
McCain, United States Navy. He knew
first hand the effects of war protesters
back home. He saw first hand how they
emboldened the enemy. When it comes
to who can best serve as our next presi-
dent, there is no one his equal in the
other party.

Let voters decide on new
sheriff's building
Editor:
On Feb. 19, the board of county com-
missioners was given an update on the
proposed $13 million Highlands County
Sheriff's Office building, which is to be
built behind the Highlands County Agri-
Civic Center.
After a review of these plans, I have a
number of concerns. My observations are
based on my 35 years as a law enforce-
ment professional, with extensive experi-"
ence and participation in the planning,
renovation and new construction of
numerous law enforcement facilities.
The proposed new sheriff's facility
appears to be extraordinarily large, over
built and expensive for the number of
employees that will work in the building.
As an example, a number of the work
spaces allocated for the new structure are
indicated on the plan for patrol deputies
and supervisors who should very seldom
be in the headquarters facility.
The advantage of computers in patrol
cars is to keep deputies in their patrol
vehicles, patrolling our community and
responding to calls 'fdi service and not in
the office!
There are numerous other examples of
space that could be eliminated or consol-
idated saving hours of square feet and
millions of dollars in costs.
Cost consideration should be para-
mount, especially in these uncertain eco-
nomic times.
Based upon current economic trends,
revenue sources to find this project are
likely to decline, requiring the county to
borrow money or obtain a bond to fund
the project which would not be fiscally
prudent at this time.
In summation, the cost, location and
even whether a new sheriff's office facil-
ity is needed are critical issues to our
community and will be important con-
cerns in the upcoming sheriff's campaign
and election.
Therefore, I would recommend that the
BOCC postpone until after the November
election the authorization for this project
to move forward.
In so doing, the citizens of our county
will have a voice as to whether they
believe it is even necessary to have a
new sheriff's office built and, if so,
whether they believe less expensive
alternatives should be more fully
explored.

Don't be afraid to find the writer lurking inside you


Less than a month ago I
had the distinct privilege of
attending "Writing the
Stories of Your Life" seminar
taught by Larry Levey,
News-Sun correspondent, at
South Florida Community
College. My boss graciously
allowed me to take the time
to attend the two mornings.
It was so nice to step off
the carousel of life and do
something totally different
like sitting in a classroom
with other students who were
excited and eager to learn
more about writing. I learned
something from each of them
as well. They seemed to be
everyday, ordinary people,
but had extraordinary stories
and experiences to share!
Just goes to show we all
have a story to tell.
One fellow wrote how he
met his girlfriend and made
you feel like you were right
there with him. Another
wrote about the exciting
events that happened to him


A Heart's Journey
Janelle Dennison
in Mexico. Another even
wrote about his experience
on a bus during the civil
rights movement days.
People usually say they
can't even write a letter,
much less write incidents of
their lives. Why not try?
Think of those interesting
incidents in your life, using
the rules Larry gave in the
recent Senior Scene (March
5) ard give it a whirl. You
may surprise yourself.
Here's a few examples of
what we learned in class:
1. Don't bore the reader.
Something needs to grab
their interest. You should
start with a good lead in the
first sentence or paragraph
(and, of course, the heading
itself).
2. Details. Give an idea of
what the person looked like,
his surroundings, the color or
size of the object, etc.


3. Use action verbs. Using
passive verbs like she "went"
doesn't say much to the read-
er. You could say she "ran"
instead.
4. Write like you talk. This
keeps it simple. I wouldn't
say "What a supercalifragilis-
ticexpialadocious idea," but
"What an extraordinary
idea."
5. Big words are for the
birds. To use the "dilapidat-
ed" may leave a question
mark in the reader's mind.
What does that word mean?
But if you say run-down, the
reader gets an image in their
mind.
6. Edit often. This happens
several times before I submit
this column. I try to find
shorter ways to say things
and make it more appealing
to the reader.'
7. Show and tell. Use sens-
es like how it smells, tastes,
looks, feels and sounds. It
helps the reader identify with
the writer's take on the sub-


ject he's writing about.
8. Don't use cliches. "I
danced the night away," is
what I said in one of my
writing exercises in class. A
cliche is a phrase that is used
all the time, everyone knows
it, etc. Another way to say it
would be "I danced until the
stars faded and the sun rose
the following morning." That
too, may be too long but you
get the idea; make your own
cliche and try to keep it
short.
Now, I'm thinking I've
probably forgotten a few
rules (Mr. Levey will be sure
to correct me) but this is a
good place to start.
Larry Levey teaches this
class periodically, so keep an
eye out in the News-Sun for
the next class and treat your-
self to it. You'll be glad you
did. There just may be a
writer lurking in you!

clerk for the News-Sun. She can

Thunderbird Hills waste plant mess about to hit county's fan


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING It hasn't hit the fan
yet, but after more than a year of dis-
cussing options county commission-
ers still haven't been able to flush the
toilet on the Thunderbird Hills South
Waste Water Treatment Plant.
With Florida Department of
Environmental Protection pursuing
fines and resolutions in court and
Landmark Utilities 6wner David
Plank warning of abandoning the
greater Sebring package sewage
plant, the commissioners have


reviewed their options.
They reviewed them again and
again and one more time before nar-
rowing their solutions from four to
two Tuesday before buying more
time before taking action on the
inevitable.
"It's been stinkin' for five years,"
Commissioner C. Guy Maxcy said.
"(There's) no reason it can't stink a
little while longer."
Commissioners Maxcy, Andrew
Jackson and Don Bates stood in the
line that led to exploring more


options while Commissioners Edgar
Stokes and Barbara Stewart were
ready to do their business or get off
the pot.
Of four ways of tackling the prob-
lem presented by county engineering
staff, DEP said two weren't feasible
(buying and rehabilitating another
package plant, then hooking the
Thunderbird WWTP to it) and the
board agreed a third option was the
wrong direction and too expensive
(building a new plant, repairing the
current facility and entering the


sewage business).
That left with them with the option
to which they've been drawn reha-
bilitating the Thunderbird plant after
receiving it from Plank, bringing it to
City of Sebring's standards then turn-
ing the plant's operations and billing
to the city.
County attorney Ross MacBeth
summarized the ongoing problem.
"It's a continuation of an existing
problem with no immediate solu-
tion," he said, explaining current
owner Plank (who wants to expedite


abandonment procedures) and the
future receiver (inevitably the coun-
ty) lack the funds to improve the
plant to DEP's standards.
The plant has been operating with-
out a permit for more than six years
and while some residents have paid
their utility bills to Plank, others took
advantage of not being accountable
for the operational costs.
Either way, county and city politi-
cians have indicated the cost of
Plank's abandonment will be passed
on to his former customers.


AP Relay for Life



paints the town

Purple ribbons draw attention to

cancer fundraiser set for April 12-13


By ROMONA WASHINGTON
editor@newssun.com
AVON PARK A drive
along Avon Park's Main
Street has often been beauti-
ful. Year's ago the street's
median was covered in color-
ful flowers taken care of by a
couple of residents. The gar-
den clubs helped through a
period and are still involved
to some degree with the
placement of trees.
Although the colorful array
of flowers have gone, the
Avon Park Relay for Life
committee is putting color
back on the mile-long Mall.
Monday they "painted the
town purple" by placing pur-
ple bows on various streetside
lampposts. They also took
bows and ribbon, along with a
couple of signs, and decorated
the town's gazebo.
Lee Ann Hinskey, chairman
of the Avon Park Relay for
Life, said the idea of "paint-
ing the town purple" came
from Sherri DiSimone-
Dawes, who last year saw the
,town of Bowling Green, Ky.,
_ decorated in purple. She
returned home to Highlands


County with, the idea that the
same should be done here.
Purple is associated with
cancer survivors and more
specifically the Relay for
Life. Jimmy's Flower Shop,
Ridge Florist and World of
Flowers all helped the com-
mittee by making the bows.
Avon Park Chamber of
Commerce Executive
Director David Greenslade
approached the city council
for permission to "paint the
town purple" and the Relay
committee took over Monday
night until the job was done.
"This is just a great way to
make people aware of Relay
for Life," Hinskey said.
The committee will also
have a booth at this week-
end's Springtime on the Mall
Festival. Hinskey and com-
mittee members have been
making jewelry for months in
different colors to signify the
different types of cancer.
All cancers have their own
colors of recognition most
people associate pink with
breast cancer, while yellow
symbolizes cancer in chil-
dren.

bons to raise awareness for the Relay for Life walk on April 12.


Hinskey and three of the
other committee members
have been visiting the differ-
ent businesses in town to seek
donations.
"It's amazing to me that
either someone in the busi-
ness, or someone in the busi-
ness knows someone who has
cancer," Hinskey said.
The committee wants to
encourage the public to come
out and spend some time dur-
ing the April 12-13 Relay for
Life at Avon Park High
School's Joe Franza Stadium.


The event gets under way at
noon Saturday, April 12, and
will end with a sunrise service
and closing ceremonies at 6
a.m. Sunday, April 13.
There are 20 solid teams so
far, but others can still join. If
interested, contact Hinskey at
382-4110.
The committee will take
teams up to the last minute,
but the sooner they can get
signed on as a team the better
off they will be. New teams
are encouraged to raise
$1,500; returning teams,


$2,000.
Destination Cure is the
theme for this year's Relay.
Hinskey said, "The teachers
are going on a summer vaca-
tion. One team is going to the
Amazon. The Great Apes
Center is going on a safari.
The student nurses are going
to New Orleans and the First
Baptist Church girls are going
to Paris, and the boys are
playing World Cup Soccer."
Hinskey promises a lot of
fun and hopes the community
comes out to take part in it.

Positive Mobility denied access to ALS service BLOOM


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin .shlitt@i' II'ssiiiu.('oin
SEBRING Fledgling private ambu-
lance service Positive Mobility didn't get
the economic shot in the arm it sought at
Tuesday's commission meeting that
mostly focused on stimulus ideas.
Instead, Positive Mobility's applica-
tion for a Certificate of Public
Convenience and Necessity to provide
advance life support transports was
essentially shot down in a 3-1 vote to
enact a moratorium on the certificates
until the county adopts standards for the
most critical of ambulance duties.
Commissioner Don Bates abstained
because a daughter is a part-time emer-
gency medical technician with Positive
Mobility.
A former Ohio paramedic. Ron Layne,
founded the service in 2005. His fleet of
two ambulances and a medical staff of
eight EMTs and two paramedics augment
two other private services and Highlands
County EMS.
Several months could pass before the
board develops and adopts an ordinance
by which Layne can renew his applica-
tion.
"We will maybe not be here," Layne


BAILOUT
Continued from 1A
Jan. 1.
As per law, the county sub-
mitted its funding application
by way of a resolution before
the Feb. 1 deadline.
Amendment 1 is expected
to affect Highlands County to
the tune of $4-5 million in ad
valorem taxes and that does-
n't include municipalities,
which aren't protected by the
provisions of Senate Bill 4D.
"That looks like we're not
going to get that until 2009,"
Stokes said.
Cool said it's going to be
tough for the state to scrape
up the money considering it
has already been forced to
trim its current budget by
about $500 million.
In a Feb. 27 letter to
Stokes, Rep. Denise Grimsley
vowed to "work diligently" to

- were increased to 30 per-
cent for the current budget
cycle.
The impact fee committee,
several members of which are
builders, Realtors or develop-
ers and were present Tuesday,
was not charged with address-
ing the feasibility of econom-
ic stimulus in the form of sus-
pending the fees, which are
designated to pay for new
infrastructure made necessary
by growth.
That didn't stop them from
supporting a temporary sus-
pension of impact fees from
six months to a year.
"There's a tie-in here when
we talk about one fee and for-
get about everything else,"
said Jack Richie, who repre-
sents Highlands County
Homeowners Association on
the impact fee committee,
serving as chairman of both.
"That is a hard thing to do.
We've crippled ourselves
with taxes that you can't do
anything about."
Commission Chairman
Edgar Stokes agreed, support-
ing stimulus while warning,
"We don't want to cut our
throats."
"We need to look back at
why we have impact fees,"
Stokes said.
He explained that
Department of Community
Affairs is a state agency that
can deny developments
approved locally if it deter-
mines the county failed to
adequately prepare for the
resultant growth.
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart defended DCA, not-
ing the board adopted impact
fees not because the state said
so but because supporters
wanted.to preserve a quality
of life.
She steered discussion
away from the suggestion the
impact fee review committee
tackle stimulus.
"What's the point of having
a committee if we tell them
what we want and to go out
and justify it?" she said.
Commissioner Don Bates
moved to suspend impact fees


Private ambulance service

trying to move into market

said, explaining his advanced life sup-
port (ALS) state license is contingent on
the county certificate of convenience and
necessity.
Highlands EMS acting-Director
Stephen "Plunkett" Colthorp, backed by
retired director Rick Weigand, adamantly
opposed Layne's application despite sup-
port from Economic Development
Commission Director Louise England,
about 300 petition signatures and 15 let-
ters from the doctor's offices and nursing
homes that would be served by Positive
Mobility.
American Medical Response and West
Coast Southern Ambulance also opposed
Layne's foray into ALS service.
"I wonder why you're asking a local
company to jump through.hoops you did-
n't ask the other companies to jump
through," England said.
Layne argued AMR and West Coast
didn't seek certificates (they apparently
had been operating on board letters
excepting them from policy) until he
sought his certificate of convenience and


honor the legislature's "statu-
tory obligation" to provide
the funding during the 2008-
09 fiscal year.
Christian Weiss, Crist's
chief economist, penned the
letter on behalf of the gover-
nor.
"The governor proposes to
amend section 9 (of Senate
Bill 4D) to assure that the
correct distribution be appro-
priated by the 2009 legisla-
ture and distributed in July of
2009, still within the local
governments' affected fiscal
years," Weiss said.
By then. Highlands County
will be eight months into its
budget cycle.
And. as with the state. the
county can't budget for
unknown funds.
"I don't think that letter's
in compliance with state law,"
Cool said. "In fact, it says the
governor is proposing to
change the law."


for 180 days effective April I
and was backed by Maxcy,
but county attorney Ross
'MacBeth said they didn't
have the authority to do so.
Instead, whatever stimulus
they provide, which the
builders said must be immedi-
ate, won't happen for several
weeks because an impact fees
abatement would require an
amendment to the county
ordinance and two public
hearings.
MacBeth was directed to
draft an ordinance amend-
ment that will be discussed at
a future meeting.
During public comment,
Ken Melvin renewed his stim-
ulus idea to rehabilitate hous-
es using county affordable
housing funds, emphasizing
local builders, labor and sup-
pliers.
Administrator Carl Cool
had floated an idea of his own
- advertising to Florida's
coastal residents to transport


need for non-emergency stretcher appli-
cations, also known as "wheelchair"
transports between nursing homes -and
doctor offices.
"Positive Mobility does not meet my
medical standard at the wheelchair
level," Colthorp said. "I certainly would
not want to give them an ALS license."
Layne said it was unfair to have to
answer such an accusation when he had-
n't previously received any complaints
from the county.
Barbara Cook, founder of Visions
Adult Day Training, said she encoun-
tered similar opposition when she began
her business.
"There's always a need and there's
always a need for growth," she said, not-
ing that if Positive Mobility can't deliver
adequate service the transporting of
critically ill patients to better-equipped
facilities out,of Highlands County it
would not be able to sustain itself.
Commissioner Barbara Stewart, who
moved foi" the moratorium, said it was a
matter of public responsibility.
Commissioner C. Guy Maxcy agreed
and, together with Chairman Edgar
Stokes, voted to suspend issuing any
more certificates.


Continued from 1A
to meet 450 separate stan-
dards to retain accreditation.
Much of that information
can only be gleaned from data
bases, consulted over time
and showing trends.
Students are tracked indi-
vidually. It is Bloom's
responsibility to collect the
various paperwork each stu-
dent generates such as
incidence reports or positive
referrals enter them into
the necessary data bases, and
return the now organized
originals to the proper depart-
ment and unit heads.
In addition she makes sure
the students are writing their
two letters a week minimum,
and she is responsible for the
minutes, of meetings.
Working directly for
Zeegers, Bloom is also
responsible for keeping him
on schedule and fully
informed.
"I truly believe there is a
great woman behind every
good man," Mitchell said
laughing. "Pete has two, his
wife,and Amy Bloom.
"Amy is very reliable. If
you have an issue Amy's the
one to see."
"I'm going to tell you
something," Zeegers said in a
telephone interview from his
home where he convalesces
from knee surgery, "When I
hired Amy, she wasn't my
first choice.
"She had worked at a car
dealership, and I thought that
was good because the job
(here) is the kind where you
have to be able to deal with


their Save Our Homes credits
to Highlands County.
His proposed campaign
would have centered on the
message, "Why you can buy
more for less in Highlands
County."
Cool said it would help
move some of the housing
inventory, eventually spilling
over to new home construc-
tion.
Maxcy liked the idea for
being unique.
Melvin suggested a greater
return on the marketing
investment if the board adver-
tised to Europe and South
America.
"We have become the Wal-
Mart of the world," said Ray
Napper, echoing Ken
Melvin's comments about the
devaluing dollar relative to
the euro and other currencies.
Stokes, Stewart and Bates,
however, disagreed with an ad
campaign, Stewart noting that
the county already funds sev-


eral agencies that marketing
budgets.
"I thought the idea was
kind of neat," Maxcy said.
The commissioners agreed
to visit in a public hearing
later Cool's idea about bor-
rowing money at current low
interest rates to offset antici-
pated inflated construction
costs.
He said counties such as
Charlotte have issued bonds
to accelerate high-dollar proj-
ects and capitalize on the sav-
ings.
"If it made sense a year,
year and a half ago, it makes
even more sense now," Cool
said, noting the growing gap
between the two.
Cool also suggested accel-
-erating already-approved cap-
ital projects throughout the
county to put local laborers to
work, but any discussion
about spending cuts will like-
ly occur during budget hear-
ings.

Historical Society
*hosts chamber mixer
LAKE PLACID The
Depot Museum at the west
end of Park Street will be the
site of the Lake Placid
Chamber of Commerce
Mixer from 5-7 p.m.
Thursday.
The Historical Society
came into being in 1982 and
the Museum was established
not long after that. Yet, there
are many people living in
Highlands County who have
never stepped foot inside the
building.
In keeping with the
Museum setting, plans for the
mixer include a taste of old
fashioned "vittles" such as
home cooked Lima Beans,
cornbread and peach cobbler.
Members that are interest-
ed in attending should call
the chamber at 465-4331.

Colby to discuss
Denton at meeting
SEBRING As the popu-


lation continues to grow, the
problems at Lake Denton
could foretell the plight
awaiting many of the lakes in
Highlands County. How we
handle the current situation
will be important for main-
taining the balance between
property owner's rights and
the increasing demand for
public recreation and access
to lakes and beaches.
Preston Colby, a leading
authority on lake conditions
in the county, will speak
Thursday at the monthly
meeting of the Highlands
County Voters League.
Colby is well informed
about the controversy sur-
rounding Lake Denton. Hd
will try to clear up some of
the misinformation that has
caused much of the con-
tention, as well as explain
some of the legal matters that
govern the use of this proper-
ty.
The group meets for Dutch
treat dinner at 5 p.m.
Thursday with the meeting
starting at 6 p.m. at Homer's
Restaurant.

Lakeview students take trip to St. Augustine


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
third-, fourth- and fifth-grade
students at Lakeview
Christian School rode a bus to
get a glimpse into the past on
a field trip to St. Augustine on
March 5-6. The students, par-
ents and teachers made the
trip as part of their classes'
Florida history units.
One of the highlights of the
trip was a visit to the Castillo
de San Marcos with its
coquina walls, cannons and
beautiful view where the stu-
dents learn about the life of
Spanish soldiers.
A visit to the Spanish hos-
pital gave the students an
understanding of herbal medi-
cine, early, dentistry and sur-
gery including amputations.
The oldest wood school
house in the United States
showed them how much class
rules had changed for students
and teachers.
The students especially
enjoyed visiting the Old
Florida Museum where
hands-on projects allowed
them to experience pioneer

life as they made candles,
ground corn, plowed a garden
and raced hoops.
Climbing the 219 steps to
the top of the light house on
Anastasia Island was a physi-
cal challenge and a chance to
imagine what it took to be a


lighthouse keeper in early
Florida. The students also
enjoyed staying overnight in a
hotel and the fun of spending
the night with friends.
Lakeview Christian School
is a non-denomination
Christian school offering


classes from pre-kindergarten
through fifth grade. Lakeview
Christian's enrollment is now
open for the 2008-2009

Historical Society. The Harrises.have
been residents of Lake Placid for more
than 50 years. Rider keeps the records
of the longevity of local residents.


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Like most small
towns, Lake Placid is very proud of her
long-time residents. They bring stability
and continuity to the ongoing course of
events in and around the community.
Each year, the Historical Society recog-
nizes a man and a woman who have lived
in the area for at least 50 years.
This year, at the quarterly meeting of
the society held March 15 at the Masonic
Temple, the recipients of this honor were
Bert Harris Jr. and his wife Elna. They
were both born in South Georgia and each
moved to Florida with their families when
they were small children.
Bert is a "Gator," having graduated
from the University of Florida's College
of Agriculture in 1943. He was in the
Army Air Corps, serving in Occupied
Japan during World War II. Elna worked
for the ACL railroad in Live Oak. They
married in 1946, one month after he was
released from the military and moved to
Lake Placid two years later.

The Harris's were among the local pio-
neers in the caladium industry. Bert Jr.
supervised production; his father, Bert
Sr., was in charge of sales and marketing,
while Elna managed the office. Their
Rainbow Caladium Bulb Company
thrived, with Elna assuming responsibili-
ty for sales after the passing of Bert Sr.
Bert became Highlands County
Agriculture Agent in 1952, during which
time he started a research program for
caladiums at the Sanford Experimental
Station. New techniques developed as a
result of this initiative have been of great
benefit to the industry.
After 23 years in service to the county,
he retired to devote more time to the fam-
ily businesses or caladiums, cattle, and

He won easily and continued to serve
in that capacity until he retired again, in

PARADISE VILLAGE
Andrew Thomsen
LAKE PLACID It all
started with a $1,000 donation
from Vernon Berkhart when
he died. His will was read and
said the Men's Club of
Paradise Village was to have
the money.
Many of the men suggested
a memorial flag pole and flag
with lights would be the thing
to do because it was at the
time of Sept. 11, 2001 terror-
ist destruction.
Management was asked and
agreed. Five years later a final
tribute to Vernon was made by
American Legion Post 25 by
Commander J.P. Plunkett,
Ray Ploughe, Sergeant-at-
Arms; Lou Werk, Second Vice
Commander; Bob
Southworth, Executive Board
and Ben Greenway, followed
by Star Spangled Banner led
by Marge Krell. A short dedi-
cation speech by Men's Club
President, Andrew Thomsen.
The flag, our national
emblem, is a symbol of our
great country, our heritage
and our place in the world. We
owe reverence and respect to
our flag. It represents the
highest ideals of individual
liberty, justice and equal
opportunity for all. Thank you
Vernon Berkhart.

the fall she had.
New dances are still being
learned and all that are with
us have fun.
Carl Wile has taken the
entire tournament block hold-
er's home to repair them for
the club. Marilyn has gone
north to see her daughter and
Carl is rebuilding these. He
will have them done and back
before you read this. John
Bushee still has the best
world-class ice cream shuffle
on Saturday at 1:15 p.m.
Lessons may end in March so
sign up for yours now, before
it is too late. Ed Straub is
staying so busy for us all at


the club. So not only is he our
president, he is our chief
salesman in what little time he
has left. Patty Boswell has
completed her five years as a
director and Margaret White
is replacing her for the next
five years.

New video, guide promote



breast health among teens


Special to the News-Sun
ALEXANDRIA, Va.-
Advocating for one's health is
something that the Prevent
Cancer Foundation, (formerly
the Cancer Research and
Prevention Foundation) and
Howard University Cancer
Center have encouraged for
seven years through a collab-
orative effort in Washington,
D.C., known as Project Early
Awareness.
Based on this experience,
both organizations are proud
to release "Breast Health
Education for Young
Women," a facilitator's guide
and educational video that are
designed to promote lifelong
good breast-health habits for
young women, particularly
women of color. These mate-
rials are designed for nation-
wide use in urban school and
community group settings.
"We know these materials
can increase awareness and
knowledge about breast can-
cer among young urban
women and teach them valu-
able skills that they can put
into practice.
"Furthermore, they can
take life-saving information
home to their mothers, aunts
and grandmothers to encour-
age them to get screened for
breast cancer," said Carolyn
Aldig6, Prevent Cancer
Foundation president and
founder.
Nationally, the breast can-
cer mortality rate for African
American women is 34.4 per
100,000, according to 2007
estimates. In comparison, the
rate is 25.4 per 100,000 for
white women.
Recent statistics show that
African American women are
much less likely to survive
five years, primarily due to
later detection of the disease
which leads to a more
advanced stage upon diagno-
sis.
Cheryl Holmes described
herself as "happy and accom-
plished," before breast cancer
entered her life. Diagnosed at
age 35 with Stage 1 breast
cancer, Cheryl is a supporter
of Project Early Awareness
and suggests that self aware-
ness and technology go
together in detecting cancer,
be it a mammogram, ultra-
sound or MRI.
"I discovered my lump,"
she said, explaining that the
discovery has encouraged her
to live a more purposeful life,
spend more time with friends
and family and pursue her
life's goals.
During three dozen radia-
tion treatments, she faced
many questions and miscon-
ceptions. Cheryl decided to be
very open with everyone and


encouraged others to examine
their breasts for lumps and
stay aware of their bodies. "I
want women of all ages to
know that if they detect a
lump, they should he coura-
geous.and tell their medical
professional that they'd like
careful examination."
The ."Breast Health
Education for Young Women"
video and facilitator's guide
are designed for use with" high
school girls and may be inte-
grated into school curricula or
used by youth group and com-
munity center health educa-
tors.
The 14-minute educational
video includes facts about
breast cancer, a demonstration
of a breast self-exam, an
overview of mammography,
treatment options and sur-
vivor stories.
The video is available in
DVD and VHS formats and
may be ordered for the cost of
shipping and handling at
www.preventcancer.org.


Health educators, teachers
and group leaders can use the
facilitator's guide to provide
skills-based breast health edu-
cation with groups.
The guide contains instruc-
tions for facilitating interac-
tive activities, including a dis-
cussion of the video, a
demonstration and practice of
breast self-exams using breast
models, a critical thinking
exercise, role play, and more.
Information on how the activ-
ities may be used to meet
national or international edu-
cational content standards is
also contained in the guide.
Among the resources pro-
vided are a glossary, frequent-
ly asked questions, and sam-
ple tests, letters, and forms
that will be helpful in imple-
menting a breast health edu-
cation program.
The guide can be down-
loaded or may be ordered for
the cost of shipping and han-
dling at w,:v.preventcancer.

Special to tl News-Sun
SEBRING Once again
the generosity of the Pope
John XXIII Knights of

for $845 to Arc Director of
Development Linda Wells at a
recent meeting of the Knights

Arc has six group homes in
the area and is refurbishing


the fourth one in this cam-
paign. Wells thanked the
Knights and Columbiettes for
their continued support of Arc
and dedication to the commu-
nity.
Ridge Area Arc, 120 W.
College Drive, Avon Park, is
a non-profit charitable organ-
ization that has provided
opportunities for individuals
with developmental and other
disabilities for 50 years. Arc

dren, Bert III and Susan, and
three grandchildren:
Katherine, Amy, and Chrissy.
They enjoy volunteering in
their community, especially in
their church, Faith Baptist.
In recognition of their hon-
orary position, Carolyn Rider
presented each of the Harris's
a plaque to attest to their sta-
tus. In addition, she gave Elna
with a "Mop Hat" and an
apron, which have a history
unto themselves. The hat and
apron were made many years
ago by Jeannette Hoy, charter
member and former president


of the society, now deceased.
They had been a gift to
Carolyn and held a special
place in her heart. Bert was
given a straw hat and bandana,
compliments of Lake Placid
Feed and Western Wear.
In other business, a slate of
officers for the 2008-2010
term was presented, with the

GUEST
Continued from 3B
The committee also sends
to servicemen and women
who are stationed in the
states, $25 for Christmas
instead of packages and sends
a gift check for all servicemen
and women, both overseas
and in the states, for their
birthdays.
The committee works all
year round to help the ser-
vicemen and women with a
soup and sandwich dinner
every month. The soup. is
homemade and each month
there is a different sandwich,
also all tea, coffee and
desserts are included. This
project is possible by a dedi-
cated group of members who
are willing to work hard for
this wonderful cause. The


military service people helped
are the sons and daughters,
grandchildren, sons-in-law,
daughters-in-law, nieces and
nephews of Tropical Harbor
residents. "Because we are
able to make a small differ-
ence in their lives, we will
continue to try to meet their
requests. One request was for
Girl Scout cookies, so we
contacted a Girl Scout parent
and bought six cases to send
to Iraq," organizers said.


LUNCH

her clients at the same time.
"Lynda is a woman of posi-
tive energy and courage,"
Albritton said.
Fulcher received a $25 gift
certificate and a flower bou-
quet from Hobby Hill Florist
in Sebring.
Christina Walker, a
Southwest Central therapist
with Florida Elks Children's
Program, spoke at Lunch Club
Wednesday' about the services
offered through the Elks pro-
gram. It serves children in
Lake Placid, Sebring, Arcadia,
Port Charlotte and Wauchula.
Walker said there needs to be
more awareness of the servic-
es offered by the Elks program
since only two children in
Highlands County are
involved in the program.
Lunch Club Wednesday, a
group where women can net-
work, meets at noon every
second Wednesday of the
month at the Sebring Elks
Lodge. The next meeting will
be April 9. Doors open at

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

Hoehne 5,

From Tiger to


theTourney

While the 12 Hours of
Sebring was going on
Saturday, Tiger Woods was
making his move about two
hours north.
Sitting at two-under going
into the third day of action at
the Arnold Palmer
Invitational in Orlando,
Woods trailed Vijay Singh by
seven strokes.
So of course, he shoots a
four-under par 66 while
Singh struggles to a 73,
pulling the two into a tie,
with a few others, heading
into the final round.
And, of course, Woods
made another miraculous
shot or two the next day to
win the whole thing, his fifth
PGA Tour win in a row and
his seventh out of eight.
Impressive, absolutely, it
made for riveting television,
and it makes me wonder why
they even broadcast any
tournament he isn't in, espe-
cially now.
But another question I
have is, when they refer to
PGA tournaments, they dis-
cuss it as'a week such as
on Tiger's approach shot on
the 18th hole S1unday, he said
it was his best swing of the
week.
Granted, they arrive early
in the week for some prac-
tice rounds, etc., but they're
only playing from Thursday
through Sunday, and usually
it's only the Saturday and
Sunday rounds that are tele-
vised on network TV.
How does that qualify as a
week?
I mean, watching it on a
Sunday, and hearing him say
it was his best swing of the
week makes me instinctively

more trouble at number five, winning 6-
3, 6-2 over Savannah Palmer.

number one doubles to take an 8-2 win
and Jimenez and Freeland got by at num-
ber two doubles with a 9-7 win over

Central Security Rolls


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
Central Security team rolled
to an easy 17-9 victory over
the Lake Placid Marine team
in Lake Placid Senior Softball
league play at the Lake June
Ball fields on Monday March
17.
Ironically, Jim Guild, who
Sec is the manger
of the idle
17 S cchooni s
team helped
L.P. Marine knock his own
team out of a
9 first-place tie
with Central
Security.
He filled in for a missing
player on the Central Security
team and went 5-for-5 with a
home run and two triples, his
best day at the plate all sea-
son, to lead Central Security
.to the win.
Ed Engler and Tom Walsh
also had good days at the


plate with four hits each and
Hugh Grimaldi pounded out
three hits for the winners.
Lake Placid Marine was led
at the plate by Larry Oster
and Don Cunningham with
three hits each.
Sem.Tire
Attempts by
the team to 2
rally were fre- 20
quently cut M.Yates
short by dou-
ble plays and
other good 13
fielding efforts
by Central Security.
Play on the other field was
also a somewhat lopsided
affair with the Seminole Tire
team topping the Michelle
Yates Insurance team by a
score of 20-13.
Manager Gary Steeves led
the winners with .four hits,
followed by Jim Radcliff and
Paul Smith with three hits,

FIVE
Continued from 1D
I've always kind of
thought of Friday as part of
the weekend, or at least the
last seven hours of the day,
once the 9-5'ers get off work.
So with only one-and-a-
half of the four days being
part of the 'week', let's start
saying it more like, 'it was
his best shot of the long
weekend.'
And of course, the week-
end ended with the madness
of March getting amped up
with the selection of the
NCAA Tournament field.
Which means it's time to
download, print out and fill
out those brackets (strictly
for entertainment purposes,
of course).
The usual power programs
dot the top seeds, save per-
haps for Memphis out of
Conference USA.
And I agree the best teams
should be rewarded for their


great seasons, but let's not
carried away.
Keep them in their respec-
tive parts of the country,
North Carolina in the Eastern
Bracket, UCLA in the West,
Kansas in the Midwest and
Memphis in the South but
don't necessarily put them in
their'own back yards.
Kansas starts in Omaha,
Nebraska, just 208 miles
away from their home in
Lawrence, but if they
advance, have to head over to
Detroit.
Memphis begins their
bracket in Little Rock,
Arkansas, just 138 miles
away, and would head to
Houston if they advance,
almost 600 miles away.
Even UCLA, which gets
underway in their own home-
town, essentially, has to trav-
el 373 miles to Phoenix if
they win their first two
games.
But North Carolina, sure
got it's road paved very nice-


ly, considering they won't be
on it long.
They begin in Raleigh, 32
miles away, and move to
Charlotte as they advance,
142 miles they wouldn't
even leave their state until
the Final Four.
Regardless, it's always fun
filling out the brackets,
though it does get frustrating.
I always want to pick some
upsets, be original in finding.
a sleeper that gets far in the
tournament, and yet I always
end up with the usual sus-
pects.
And then there's always
Betty in accounting, who
picks the teams with the
more stylish uniforms and
wins the pool um, I mean,
gets the most right in the
purely-for-entertainment
competition.

NASCAR legend visits SebringHigh School Boys Weihtliftin
NASCAR legend visits Sebring Streak newer lifts them over foes


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING Members of
the Shiftless Motorscooter
riders club of Sebring were
treated to more than dough-
nuts and coffee before
Tuesday morning ride.
They talked about racing
with one of the godfathers of
NASCAR, Marvin Panch.
Panch raced with the likes
of Smokey Yunick, A.J. Foyt
and Richard Petty in his day,
although Petty was merely
his relief driver on his last
career race.
A race, like many others,
he won.
In his 15-year career,
Panch has enough racing
information and history in his
career to fill not one, but two
books.
It's true. His autobiogra-
phy is sold in two separate
volumes.
Like many racers, memo-
ries turn races into races. Just
another of his 216.
One of his best memories
is not from a race, but testing
a Maserati GT coupe.
The coupe was unlike the
cars at the time, with sleek
lines and gull wing doors that
opened from a hinge at the
top.
"My happiest moment was
when-I was outside a burning


The News-Sun www.newssun.com


car," he said.
He was drafted by Ford,
the company he drove for
and the engine supplier for
the GT coupe, to test out the
car.
It was twitchy and didn't
feel right at first, he recalled.
After pitting he told the
crew, but decided to go back
out hoping the car he did-
n't feel had much aerody-
namic downforce, would
stick to the track a little more
if they filled the tank.
This time with a fill tank
of gas and a few adjustments
he continued to brave the test
track.
"I would make a lap and
wave at them if I felt every-
thing was okay and for them
to start the timers," Panch
said. "It seemed to settle
down a bit and I went for it."
Panch pushed the car fur-
ther than the aerodynamics
would allow, and the car was
airborne flying in the air
and landing upside down.
The year was 1963. Panch
was a veteran driver at age
37, but not ready to hang up
the racing shoes just yet.
The fuel tank, which was
now upside down, began
leaking fuel all over the
track.
The doors, as stylish as
they may have been, were


slammed shut against the
pavement, preventing escape.
Fortunately the crew of
four or five men came to his
rescue.
Most suffered severe burns
on their hands and one even-
tually lost his vision, but they
were able to pull Panch from
the burning vehicle.
He suffered a great deal of
burns on his body and across
his back, but he was alive.
It sidelined him for awhile,
but it's hard to keep a racer
away from the track.
Panch pointed to a picture
of himself, wrapped head to
toe in white clothing.
While he was still recuper-
ating he headed to the track
to say hello to friends before
a race.
When the race started he
was taken right back to the
hospital, he said.
These days Panch is still
on the road traveling to
and from NASCAR events
and shows in an RV.
Panch was named one of
NASCARs 50 greatest driv-
ers in 1998, and is a member
of the National Motorpsorts
Press Association Hall of
Fame (inducted in 1987) and
was named to the West Coast
Stock Car Hall of Fame in
their first year.


News-Sun photo by TREY CHRISTY
Marvin Panch, named one of NASCARs 50 greatest drivers of all time, looks through his
autobiography and reminisces about his 15 year career behind the wheel. Panch won the
Daytona 500 in 1961 and was nearly killed while testing a Maserati GT coupe in 1963.

SENIORS
Continued from 1D
including a home run, each.
Don Thomas also added
three hits for the Seminole
team.
Yates was also productive
at the plate with Rod Palmer
nearly hitting for the cycle
with a single, double and
triple, Duke Hensley with two
triples, Rocky Soccarras, Moe


Piet"and Fred, Moore with
three hits each and Bruce
Maurer with a single and
home run.
With the win, the Central
Security team takes over sole
possession of first place in the
league over the idle Schooni's
Family Restaurant team with
records of 10-7 and 9-7,
respectively.
The win by Seminole Tire
moved them into third place
at 8-8, followed by Michelle


Yates Insurance at 8-9 and
Lake Placid Marine at 7-10.
All teams but Schooni's
have three games left in their
season.
Schooni's has four games
left with their last game
scheduled against the present-
ly league-leading Central
Security.
All teams are still mathe-
matically in the running for
the championship the sea-
son ends March 31.

second place.


After team points were
announced, Sebring coach
Steve Berry said, "For the
first couple years we did this,
we didn't win anything. This
is a definite improvement."
Sebring coach Jared

improving every week."
The Streaks will look to
continue that improvement
Saturday at the Bartow
Invitational.
