lessons learned; a cycle of hard-earned edu-
cation that ends where it starts.
.It beganl in post World War II Central
Florida, on the Kissimmee Rtver, a meandering
stream twisted into ex-bows that were almost
kinks. '
Deeplyr meshed with seasonal rains and
droughts, the rising and falling river had a flood
plain lining it on either side for about three miles
east and west. The area was historical home to
vast arrays of wetlands life.
Dozens of different kinds of water-loving .
plants attracted millions of different insects and
tiny invertebrates. Thousands 6f different birds,
fish, amphibians and reptiles feasted along the
chain. All shared the same rich environment; all.
were interconnected, yet no two were alike.
It was a paradise.
Which meant, of course, that the area attracted
people.
And as people gathered into communities build-
ings went u~p, investments were made. Slowly, the
value of the flood plain changed. It became an
obstacle and a negative; something to be tamed
and overcome, not~ enjoyed,
When hurricanes inundated the area in the late
1950s, flooding caused major property damage
and the public demanded action.
American engineering was only too willing to
come to the rescue.
Built between 1961 and 1972, an arrow-straight

To develop the draft plan, GSG collected call
data from the Sebring Fire Department, and it
used that data to come up with a possible fee
structure the council could implement.. The goal is
to create a fee system that is proportional to the
amount of calls that historically emanate from
businesses and residences.
GSG will make its recommendation based on
that data, but council is under no obligation to fol-
low its numbers. In fact, council is under no obli
gation to implement the fee at all, and a final deci-
sion will not be made at the May 7 workshop.
If the council decides to proceed with the
assessment at the workshop, it will then go to a
formal vote at a regularly scheduled Tuesday
council meeting.
"It'll be up to council to decide what to do
next," Noethlich said, adding that GSG's presen-

The Kissimmee River is being restored from a straight channel to its natural
oxbow route, both of which can be seen in the top photo. As water flow
improves, the ox-bow bends will develop sand spits attracting even more birds.
The trees, already showing the results of too much water (bottom photo, will die
back, making room for marsh plants which will further improve water quality.

Waters Irrigation is a testa-
i'nent to God's blessing on
businesses, as far as Lenard B.
Carlisle Jr. is concerned.
God directed him to leave a
business in which he was a
one-third owner and with
$1,000 and' some faith,
Carlisle opened his Sebring-
based irrigation company in
1984
"It's been a lot of' humps
and bumps," he said. "But, I
survived because of the'
Lord ,,
It's no coincidence that he
calls his service Living
Waters, which speaks to his


business as much as his per-
son.
Carlisle said God gave him
the name through personal
prayer, then at a home prayer
group a lady suggested the
same, confirming his previous
conversations~ with God.
"I prayed for a Christian
bookkeeper," 'Carlisle said,
explaining he met accountant
Betty Simmons through
church and she's been keeping
his books since.
Simmons and Carlisle
joined about 50 people from
~the community pastors,
deacons, salespeople and
business owners` for break
fast, fellowship and a blessing

SEBRING The annual budget for the
Sebringo Fire Department is around $2 million.
With cuts in property taxes resulting in a loss of
local ad valorem tax revenue, the city will have to
find some way to fill in the budget gap.
One possibility is a fire assessment, and the
council will kick around that idea at a May 7 pub-
lic workshop, which will begin at 2:30 p.m. at city
hall.
"This is all coming about because of the issues
at the state- level,'" Assistant City Administrator
Scott Noethlich said. "They're cutting our fund-
ing, so we have to ask 'how do you fund the fire
department?' That's what this is to look at."
The idea was first proposed last summer, and

financial indicators, the city
received nine unfavorable rat-
ings, two of which are consid-
ered critical 'the lack of
reserve emergency funding
and the declining ratio of
assets to liabilities.


Adelt indicated tightening
up on these two items alone
would save the city consider-
able cost.
In terms of tighter controls
and oversight, part of the
solution simply means being
more aware and alert, the
council was told, while staff
should be restructured for
optimum coverage.
For example, the auditor
recommended that Finance
Director Renee Green, who
laoselynsu erviseos te day-to-

city, also needs to create the
time to occasionally step back
for an overview.
While Green will be look-
ing broader, Maria
Sutherland, the city's project
manager, is being asked to
look closer.
The council recommended
S~utherland be reassigned
away from smaller projects so
she will have more time and
energy to apply to the larger
grant projects.

consulting firm made errors

SEBRING A building on
South Commerce Street in
downtown Sebring received
some unwanted late night ren-
ovations when a car plowed
shruf ma r, rS s ene gy
box and into the side of a res-
iden~ce.
The driver, Jackie Blake,
26, Sebring, allegedly admit-
ted to drinking three beers
during a one minute time
frame 11 hours before driv-
mng.
"I asked Blake what time
he started dr in kin g, Blake
stated at 3:00 p.m.," Sebrjng
Police Officer Sean Bueford
wrote in the arrest report. "I
asked Blake (what) time did
he stop drinking, he stately at
3:00 p.m."
Bueford repeated the ques-
tion, with the same answer.
After allegedly admitting
he had three beers, Blake
added they were the 32-ounce


variety.
He couldn't remember
what day it was, and 45 min-
utes after the accident his
blood alcohol content levels
registered .326 and .319 in
two tests, Bueford said.
The laecg limit rs.8edat2
a.m. Wednesday and there
were no injuries,
Two witnesses recalled
hearing tires squealing and a
loud crash.
One walked outside to see
Blake in the driver's seat of
the car, talking on his cell
phone, Bueford said.
When Bueford questioned
Blake about what happened,
"his speech was slurred and at
times incoherent ... Blake
could not ex lain what had
occurred,"' Bueford said.
Blake was arrested and
charged with driving under
the influence and three counts
of DUI with property damage.
He was also issued a traffic
citation for careless driving.

Anniversary was a
great celebration
Editor:
Last Saturday it was my pleasure to
attend an anniversary celebration of 10
years in our Lake Placid Sun 'N Lake
clubhouse. Every~tifung was beautifully
decorated. And the food was de ciou~s,
thanks to the hard work of so many dedi-
cated volunteers.
Resident Doris Purucker played the
organ with songs that pepped us up. Our
"pretty woman," Marge Tousignant, gave
an informative "look back" story of the
past 10 years that has brought us to this
time. Former president at that time (now
deceased) Jim Penrod, who worked long
hours and with perseverance in spite of
difficulties, made it all happen.
There have been so many hard working
volunteers in these past years who will
always be remembered,
Joyce Campbell was shin star in the
kitchen and keeping the card players
happy. Barbara Huff took over this time-
consuming job and is still doing it. We
don't hear much about the many other
"silent" ones who help clean up, cut the
grass, etc.
Now, back to the party: The "line
dancers," who practice every week and
are really good, even us "old gals" want-
ed to do it. After line dancing, many cou-
ples got up and did their thing. I would be
remiss if I failed to tell you about one
"brave" man, Jim Woods, that the ladies
stood in line to- dance with him. After
awhile, his cute little wife rescued him.
Thanks Colline for sharing him.
Remembering this wonderful party, let
us not forget to say thank you to the vol-
unteers who keep this all going.

have a constitutional right to home
school their children."
Now, I am a humble columnist
and not a judge. But I have read the
Constitution. And yup, there's no
amendment or article that says par-
ents have the right to home school.
But you know what? Nothing in
the Constitution says the federal
government has the right to educate,
either. Yet I don't hear Justice
Croskey telling Washington to
knock it off.
Maybe the Second District Court
of Appeals could educate itself a lit-
tle and not try to take one more
freedom away from parents?
Raising kids is hard enough without
being told someone else has more
rights regarding your child than you
do.

Don't legislate by
COnstitutional amend ment
Editor:
There is a commission studying taxes
in Tallahassee. They are considering plac-
ing a1 Constitutional amendment on the
ballot in November. It's called CP 45, a
so-called "Taxpayers Bill of Rights,"
which restricts revenue growth at all state
government levels and limits spending in
an irresponsible .way. This proposal has
proven a miserable failure in Colorado
where the citizens have voted to suspend

It is never a good idea to legislate by
constitutional amendment. Once in the
Constitution, it is difficult. to remove or
change the amendment. Anyone remem-
ber the pregnant pig amendment?
CIP45 is especially bad because the for-
mula does not reflect accurately the cost
of government services. It is inflexible in
response to economic downturns or natu-
ral disasters. There will be deterioration in
roads and education. How would a cap
allow for the zooming gas prices to fuel
fire trucks and police cars?
MWy biggest objection is as a "red letter
Christian." I believe Jesus' words. I
believe that greed is never a good thing. 1
believe that I am to love and care for my
neighbor, and not just the one who lives
next door. Already this year, the
Legislature is slashing funds for educa-
tion and all other services. Already there
is a proposal to renege on the promise to`
the frail elderly in .nursing homes and
reduce funding. That means fewer staff to
care for our loved ones. All for a couple of
dollars in my pocket?
I say, "No more!" I will stand up for
what I believe. Do you value life? All life
or only unborn life? Are the elderly in
nursing homes entitled to live with digni-
ty and comfort? Do kids deserve a quality
education? Do you want EMS and fire
services to be available? How about law
enforcement? Those folks need to be paid
a living wage. Do you want your pot holes
filled?
There are folks who live their faith.
They volunteer at Samaritan's Touch Care
Center, in schools, for government agen-
cies, in nursing homes, doing taxes for
free, in hospitals, and many, many other
programs They share their skills and their
time. Do you?
Before you support another tax cut
scheme, look at your neighbor. Live the
red letters in the Bible. Talk like a
Christian, think like a Christian, act like a
Christian. Let us look at our neighbors as
Christ would. Let the community see
Christ in you and in me. They will know
we are Christians by our love.

Obama won't fly
Editor:
A Japanese proverb declares, "When
the character of a man is not clear to you,
look to his friends." And so it is that we
now know more about Senator Barak
Obama.
His spiritual minister, adviser and close
friend, Rev. Jeremiah Wright has made it
abundantly clear that his America is not
Ronald Reagan's "shining city on a hill."
Far from it. We have recently learned,
from tapes sold at Obama's Trinity United
Church of Christ in Chicago, that the Rev.
Wright spewed venomous hatred of
America and foisted blame on "a country
and a culture controlled by rich white peo
ple." Comments, i-eminiscent of Malcolm
X, ... were made the Sunday after 9/11 and
might explain why Michelle Obama had
never once been proud of her country,
Over 20 years of Wright's influence obvi-
ously has had its effect.
When Rev. Wright's feelings and com-
ments became known to the general pub-
lic, Barak Obama told us he never person-


*


ally heard such racist rants or knew
Wright held such contaminated views of
this country. After people found that too
hard to believe, he acknowledged being in
church and hearing them but didn't go
along with them. This poses the question
of how unsettling was it for him when his
church honored Luis Farrakhan with an
achievement award?
Obama has been criticized for not hav-
ing enough experience. America didn't
know much about him other than his
excellent public speaking persona. We
now know the experience factor is vastly
overshadowed by his pathetic poor judge-
ment. Obarga's friend and adviser alluded
that America invented the AIDs virus to
kill blacks. Obama had to know that was
San outright lie yet where is the denuncia-
tion? Was that in one of the tapes he per-
sonally bought at church? Did he jump up
and shout Amen with the rest of the con-
gregation? ...
It's been said that words are heavy. If
birds could talk they wouldn't be able to
fly. Reverend Wright's words are heaviest
of all. Obama has not been able to sepa-
rate himself from the words of his pastor.
As a result, unfortunately, he too won't be
able to fly.

Impact feeS should be
unchanged
Editor:
The county commission discussed the
idea of raising impact fees to 75 percent
or even.100 percent after a six-month sus-
pension of county impact' fees. Does any"
one believe that these are good ideas? Can
we just forget the whole economic stimu-
lus package idea, and move on with coun-
ty business?
Perhaps, if you step back from the
firestorm, you will see that dividing the
community, rescinding promises made to
the municipalities, and jeopardizing state
and federal grants for the sake of short-
term political gain is wrong.
Again, I hope that you, county commis-
sioners, will support county impact fees,
and you will end this strife and division
among the residents of Highlands County.


charges of abuse against Phillip
Long. His wife, Mary, home schools
the eight kids. Somehow it became
a ~question of the kids not being in
public school and the rights of the
parents to educate them. The court
cited a 1953 aw t at said is
should be educated by "creden-
tialed" teachers. Other articles I
read said there were provisions for
parentS without teaching certificates
to home school, so I admit to some
mild confusion here.
Adding to the confusion is that
it's unclear if the ruling applies to
the Long family only or includes
the over 160,000 families in .
California home schooling their
kids. The ruling has been appealed'
and I suspect it's not going to be
over for a while.
One of the justices who handed
down the ruling, Justice H. Walter
Croskey, wrote that "parents do not


This is an odd year for me. In
2005, my oldest son graduated from
Sebring High School. In about two
months, my youngest son will do
the same. This fall I will not have a
child in public school for the first
time in years. -
One of the many decisions Don
and I discussed when we were
young and optimistic was how our
young children would be educated.
There were three options, as we saw
it public school, private school or
home schooling.
We researched the whole thing
quite extensively. Don did, because
he can't research in any way other
than extensively. I did the same
because as a former teacher I knew
there were pluses and minuses to
each choice.
Perhaps our backgrounds played
a role in this as well. I am a product
of the public school system, while


Don spent his latter school years in
a private school. Both of us had
suffered teasing and bullying in our
school experiences, which perhaps
explains why we considered other
options .
Where we were helped shape the
choice we made. Had we wound up
in a large city such as Tampa, pri-
vate school or home schooling
would have looked more attractive.
Being in a small town, we decided
to give the public school system a
chance. We have had very few
problems with the choice, and over-
all have been satisfied with John
and James' education.
Honesty compels me to admit I
was relieved that we didn't go the
home schooling route. It's not that I
think it's a bad thing but it would
have required a great sacrifice on
my part. Plus, James was not the
easiest child to deal with when he

was younger (he freely admitted to
our congregation during a recent
sermon that he'd been "a brat") and
it's possible that his being out of
the house part of each day kept us
both sane.
If you know someone home
schooling in California, though, you
might worry about them getting
thrown in jail, not going crazy. I say
this because last month the Second
District Court of Appeals ruled that
parents of children ages 6-18 are
legally required to send their kids to
public or private school or have
them tutored by a credentialed edu-
cator. Being a parent doesn't make
you credentialed.
The case stemmed not from ques-
tions about home schooling, but

woman in jail


808iH 10?

having sex

With a minor
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.chr-isty@nzewssun .com
SEBRING An Avon
Park woman was arrested for
a sexual offense on a 15-year-
old boy Thursday, just
months after she was picked
up 'on a warrant for similar
charges.
Elizabeth Neel, 33, was
arrested in December on
charges of lewd and lascivi-
ous battery, but before a ver-
dict in that case was even ren-
dered, she was arrested again
on the same charge.
The charge is a second-
degree felony.
She was not
on the sexual
predator or
offenders list
because the --
first case was
still open.
"It- was way Neel
too early'"
said Highlands County
Sheriffs Office Capt. Randy
Labelle.
A witness to the illegal
relationship said they saw
Neel and the victim engaging
in sexual acts, th'e report by
Deputy Robert Neale said.
"This investigation is
ongoing and ... additional
criminal charges will follow,"
he said.
Neel was being held with-
out bond. Her court date for
the .Dec. 28 charge of lewd
and lascivious battery is
scheduled for Tuesday, April

Several snowy egrets (above) take off at the sight of an airboat. The sound had not bothered them. Many wading birds had
left the area for years when the Kissimmee Canal was first dredged in the 1960s and early '70s. A sure sign of wetlands
health, scientists say, is the presence of shore birds, like this black-necked stilt (below). These are the types of birds which
had abandoned the area after the canal was built.

RIVER
Continued from 1A
canal, 30 feet deep, was
dredged by the Army Corps
of Engineers right down the
middle of the flood plain, the
displaced dirt and muck
throw'n to the east, forming a
high berm.
Locks and control gates
were built at key sites, and
just like that, for a cost of
about $32 million, the
Kissimmee flood plains were
no more.
Instead, the canal worked
so well it drained the sur-
rounding marshes, turning
them into upland pasture.
Without the sand banks of
the oxbow turns and the shal-
low, quickly flowing water,
the broad leaf plants of the
marsh and the sedges and
grasses so necessary for the
food chainI died out and were
replaced by a different ecolo-
gy.
Very quickly everything
changed. Wax myrtle
replaced willow and cattle
replaced nearly everything
else. Migrating birds no
longer stopped.
Waterfowl numbers fell
more than 90 percent, wading
bird numbers also fell drasti-
cally. Bald eagle nesting
declined by 75 percent.
Within two years virtually
everyone scientists, law
makers, even local residents,
were in agreement that the
cure had been a disaster of
monumental proportions.
Which is why, almost as
soon as the Kissimmee Canal
was complete, a wide variety
of people began work on how
to get rid of it,
The project to refill the
canal and return the river to
its historical bed has been
under way since 1999, but


anly after extensive research,
including evaluating the suc-
cess of the project along the
way.
The work is being done in
four phases, two of which are
complete. When totally fin-
ished, the restoration will
have cost $578 million and
taken 12 years.
To date, 19 miles of the
Kissimmee have been re-
established, with the contigu-
ous flood plain responding to
summer rains.
The-S-65 lock and spill-
way, located just south of
Lorida, is scheduled to be
imploded this summer. That
will cut the canal off from
the already restored portion
of the Kissimmee which
meanders just to the west,
improving the river's flow
and creating more marsh
land.
When SFWMD scientists
took a group of reporters out
onto the flood plain Thursday
and were able to maneuver
airboats over acres of marsh
which just a couple of
years ago were dry pastures
of bahia grass the change


was already apparent.
Water plants are beginning
to reappear, as water levels
rise and sprea~d.
Birds of all kinds, some in
foraging flocks numbering ill
the 100s, have returned,
including five species of
duck not seen in the area
before.
According to Lawrence
Glenn, the Kissimmee
Division Dire~ctor,
"Throughout the food web,
from tiny invertebrates to
upper-echelon predators,
we're seeing promising-
results .
The project is scheduled to
be finished by 2012, and
SFWMD will continue to fol-
low up until 2017.
That means taking samples
of water and of plant and ani-
mal life. The balances are
complex, with many vari-
ables, Glenn said. By keeping
track of the different species,
most of which have a specific
food niche, scientists will be
able to keep track of the
area's health.
About $300 million was
invested in the 102,064 acres

that were necessary for the
project. When all ph~ases~are
completed, the river-/flood
plain system a unique
ecosystem will total 39


square miles, including
almost 20,000 acres of wet-
lands and 40 miles of historic
river channel, all of which is
open to the public.

During communication, only 7
percent is verbal, MacNeill
said. He said it is easy for an
onlooker to misunderstand
a facial expression, a hand
gesture or eye movements.
If the presentation and
the attitude are lacking
"after a while you quit listening,"
MacNeill said. .
Body language, such as casually
sitting on the front desk or looking
presentable are non-verbal aspects
students should be alert to according
Becks .

(among other bogus claims),
have tricked many unsuspect-
ing people into re edlin per-
mation over the phone or via
email links to official-look-
ing forms. The IRS does not
gather such information by
phone or email.
To learn more about these
and other scams, type "iden-
tity theft" in the search box
on www.irs.gov. Another
good resource is Practical
Money Skills for Life, Visa's
free personal financial man-
agement site, which contains'
detailed identity theft and
.security precautions everyone
should take (www.practical-
moneyskills .com/security).
Bottom line: If you're eli-
gible, make sure you file a
tax return to receive your
~rebate. Once you've got it,
spend wise y.

REBATES
Continued from 9A
certain veterans' benefits or
Ccrtaini other income sources,
~Thec IRS has posted an
information page that dis-
cusses eligibility, shows pay-
mnent examples and answers
m~any commonly asked ques-
tionls (click on "Rebate
Questions" at www.irs.gov).
Here are a few highlights:
Yo~u must file a 2007 fed-
eral tax return in order to
receive a rebate, even if you
owe no taxes and wouldn't
ordinarily file. A sample
Form 1040A for low-income
earners appears in the
"Freqluently Asked
Questions" section on the
IRS site above.
You don't need to calculate
your rebate amount; if you
qualify. t-he IRS will figure it
and ben yo ck.ot

gradually for individuals
whose adjusted gross income
is over $75,000 ($150,000
for married couples filing

Joihil~dren age 17 and older
on December 31, 2007, who
are claimed as a dependent
by their parents, won't earn a
re te ein I / sor their p rents
as a dependent, they may be
eligible for their own rebate.
The IRS is using 2007 tax
returns to determine rebate
amounts. So, if you weren't
eligible in 2007 but it turns


out you will be iri 2008,
you'll receive a rebate when
yur file your 2008 taxes next
Fur~ther~more, if you receive
a rebate but it turns out you
weren't actually eligible
(because your 2008 income
doesn't qualify), the govern-
ment will not ask you to
return the money.
Those who file for direct
deposit on their tax return
will likely receive rebates
sooner than those who opt
for a check.
Rebates are not taxable
and won't be added to 2008
income .
Although Congress intends
for people to reinvest their
rebates in our faltering econ-
omy, you should temper that
desire to spend it all at once.
Consider using at least a por-
tion to pay off high-interest
debt, boost your emergency
savings or add to your retire-
ment nest egg.
One last caution:
Scammers posing as IRS rep-
deetaie ly d e promising to

Little


things
One of the diamonds in
my engagement rmng
appeared to have dirt on it.
However, closer inspection
revealed it was missing.
It looked like a smile
with a tooth missing -
dark and gaping.
I felt so sad to tell my
husband; but, Lecalled him
over and showed him the
rmng.
I could have lost it any-
where. If, by chance, it
had fallen on the carpet in
the house, it may have
already been vacuumed. If
not, the swirl pattern in
the carpeting would dis-
guise it easily.
We looked~together as I
lameilted my loss. But,
eventually, we gave up the
search for this needle in a
haystack. It was a little
thing; but va able tohme.

though, I had neglected
one very important avenue
of help. At last, I prayed.
In some ways, I felt fool-
ish. After all, would God
take an interest in such a
small thing?
But, it didn't take me
long to know the answer.
"Yes ."
"Lord," I prayed, "I
know this is a little thing;
but, it is special to me.

Wo:k yu plae ep me
find it?"
A ls ort tm laes t e


c'arpet.
"Jan," he called. ''Come
here. I think I see your
diamond."
The light had shown just
so and that tiny sliver of/
diamond caught in the
fibers of the carpet reflect-
ed the light t .
All this to ~tell you that
God cares about the little
things in our lives. His
Word tells us that the hairs
of our head are numbered.
The Bible declares that not
even a sparrow falls with-
out his notice.
Jesus cares about those
things little or big that
matter to us. He has a spe-
cial place in his heart for
what is lost and yet to be
found.
Two parables in Luke
15: 4-7 and 8-10, NIV, tell
of things lost then
found.
The first expresses the
dismay of one lost sheep
from- a fold of 100 and
how the shepherd will go
out and find the one that is
lost and then rejoices with
his friends. The second
depicts a woman who has
lost one of her 10 silver
coins. When found, she,
too cele brates with her
friends.
The deeper meaning in
both parables represents
the rejoicing in heaven
when a sinner repents and
is saved. Though only one
- that soul is extremely
valuable to God.
Pray about everything
and in so doing dra w
near to the heart of God.
Selah

It's like a seed that has been con-
cealed in the frozen ground. When sun,
water and nourishment are applied, the
seedling sprouts and grows.
There is springtime in the heart of
every child. Promise, possibility and
potential are just waiting to burst forth
and brighten our world. When we bring
them up to know that God has a plan for
their lives and a unique purpose only
they can fulfill, we give them hope and
excitement for the adventure of life
ahead.
SAs it says in Ephesians 6: 4, NKJV,
"And you, fathers, do not provoke your
children to wrath, but bring them up in
the training and admonition of the
Lord ."
We parents have the privilege of ~lead-
ing our children in such a way that they
come to recognize God's fingerprints in
their lives. Let's encourage the spring-
time that's just waiting to bud in our
children.

Encouraging springtime in the heart of a child


Spring arrived on March 20. Here in
Florida. we might not notice it as much
as those who have come through long,
bitterly cold, white covered~ winters.
But it arrives nonetheless and brings
with it longer days, sweeter smelling air
and the new budding of trees and bush-
es. It might not be as drastically differ-
ent as in the northern states; but, it is
still significant. Much like our children-
Every child matures and changes at
different rates. We clump them together
in classrooms according to age and
grade; we may even identify their dif-
ferences according to ability.
Some will take longer and then seem
to blossom so dramatically that it's like
turning the page in a book. One day
they were barely speaking; the next day
words are released like a waterfall that
won't be stopped.
Other children come along gradually
day by day. Their changes and accom-
plishments are subtle and we just accept
them routinely. But, they are significant
nonetheless.
However slowly or quickly they bud
and blossom; every child is a gift from

God and uniquely created by him. The
talents and abilities hidden within are
the potential that is just waiting for our
nourishing and cherishing love.
I remember visiting Compassion
International in Colorado Springs,
Colorado several years ago. I was fasci-
nated by the artwork that decorated the
hallways of the office building.
According to our guide, each picture
- some elaborately creative; others sim-
ple, yet poignant represented the bid-

Remember to deadhead Plumb~ago every few

cut back the spent flowers at the base, always
above a set of leaves. In the middle of sum-

Allamada Mandevilla


Plumbago


If you are looking for some bright
tropical flowers for this summer,
here are some plant.that can take the /
heat. Care is easy and maintenance is /
minimal .

Allamanda
(Allamanda neriifolia) t
This flower has bright yellow
trumpets and arching branches that M
give it an informal look. It should be Gar
grown in full sun and in well drained
soil. The woody stems grow thick
and long to a height of about 4-6 feet with
glossy foliage. For maximum growth and

Buchanan was born in
Central Scotland in 1966. She
graduated with honors in tex-
tile design froin 'Duncan of
Jordanstone College of Art in
Dundee. She later went on to
obtain a master of arts itegree
from The City Univ~ersity,
London.
Buchanan now concen-
trates on silk painting and
mixed media because they
offer vehicles for the resonant
playful expression of images


she has accumulated over the
years. The lustrous quality of
the silk is both seductive and
vibrant, affording an offbeat
view as through a fabric
stained glass window. This
medium combined with addi-
tional elements helps create
depth an~d texture in her work.
Fee is $100 per class for
members and $120 per class
for non-members. Call
Highlands Art League at 38}5-

will have excellent information on compost-
ing and all the great reasons you should do it.
Just a few of thie benefits bf composting
include:
It saves you money by replacing store-
bought soil conditioners. (Fertilizers, etc.)
It helps gardens, lawns and plants grow
by improving the fertility of your soil.
It saves water by helping the soil hold
moisture and reducing water runoff.
It benefits the environment by recycling
valuable organic resources, reducing air and
water pollution from refuse trucks and runoff
and extending the life of our landfills.
The workshop should prove to be very
educational and lots of fun, complete with
door prizes and refreshments. It is our hope
that all who attend will leave with more
knowledge and the ability to conserve water
and compost.
You will be on your way to having healthi-
er', greener plants, helping the environment
and saving money! We hope to see you there.

we are using them to make
the unit easier to h~andle.
These smaller kits will

The barrels don't get quite

On Nov. 29, 2007, 56 people attended
Highlands Soil and Water Conservation
District's (HSWCD) workshop on home com-
postmng.
Many of the attendees purchased a home
composting barrel and were supplied with
instructions on how to build the stand.
The workshop was so successful that
HSWCD staff has decided to have another
one. Thanks to six volunteers, who stepped
up and offered their assistance, 50 compost-
ing kits will be available for sale at the next
workshop, which will be from 1-4 p.m. on
May 8 at the Agri-Civic Center auditorium.
At the November workshop, prepared bar-
rels were sold to attendees for $15. At the
new and improved May workshop, we will be
offering home composting kits, complete
with barrel, pre-cut wood, hardware, instruc-
tions and screws to assemble the unit at
home. These kits will be sold for $50, which
is to cover the cost of materials,
The idea for the kits came from our group
of volunteers and they are diligently working
to have the kits ready for the May workshop.
The composters have also been improved
and we are now supplying smaller barrels in
addition to the larger barrels. Previously, all
the composting units were made up of 55-
gallon barrels, but we now offer a smaller

have done. You're just the unhappy target
of someone's bad mood.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) Cheer
up, Capricorn, things are only as bad as
you see them. In fact, the stars indicate a
stroke of very good luck to head your
way, so you better start practicing your
smile.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) -
Another mundane day stretches into an
ordinary week for you. Aquarius, fortu-
nately some sparks will heat things up on
the weekend, and just in time to brighten
your spirits.
SPisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Those
April showers are relentless, Pisces. But
you have an uncanny way of making
lemonade from lemons.

32; April 7 -Russell Crowe, actor, 44;
April 8 Patricia Arquette, actress, 40;
April 9 Cynthia Nixon, actress, 42; April
10 Mandy Moore, singer/actress, 24;


Aries (March 21-April 20) -
Readjusting your outlook on life will
take some time, Aries, but you'll make
great strides toward that end this week.
Unexpected changes are in store for you.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) Taurus,
frugality is only a benefit when you're
pinching pennies for the right reasons.
When you're compromising someone you
love, it really doesn't pay.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) Feel like
a marked man or woman, Gemini?
Owning up to something you feel guilty
about could be the way to dissipate these
feelings. The weekend is rocky.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) Cancer,
the telltale signs of burnout are stress and
fatigue. Sound familiar? It could be the
perfect time to take a break. And don't be
compelled to sneak in some work.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Leo, don't
look bewildered when someone
approaches you about a good deed you've
done. Accept the thanks and praise with
gratitude. You certainly deserve it.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) Virgo,


Sunday, April 6, 2008 5B


what you consider to be helpful meddling
seems like an intrusion to someone else.
Lie low for the next few days and resist
any compulsions to help people "fix"
their problems.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Libra,
when encounters with someone you
haven't spoken to in some time become
more frequent, it's time to realize that
there might be something in the cosmos
drawing you together.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Even
Scorpios have to let loose and have fun
sometimes..Just be choosy about how you
plan to let your hair down. Travel seems
the best option.
Sagittarius (Nov.. 23-Dec. 21) -
Conflict. You can't seem to avoid it late-
ly, Sagittarius. This week it is not the
result of anything you may or may not

With the coming of spring'
my time here in the
Sebring/Avon Park is nearly
over and this is a busy month
because I am moving from
Avon Park to Sebring and
trying to pack to go back
"home" after spending 5 1/2
months down here. There is
still quite a bit of snow
around in New Brunswick
and the temps are only in the
30-40 range, but hopefully in
another month the grass will
be green and spring flowers
in bloom.
My column missed a week
due to traveling with a friend
from Columbus, Ohio, across
the Florida Panhandle. We
had such a great time in the
very historic city of St.
Augustine, then all the way
to Pensacola; into Alabama
and back along the Gulf,
Gainesville, Ocala and home.
Florida has so many wonder-
ful places to see and the sun
and warm weather such a
relief to someone from the
north during-this very cold
winter there.
When I was in
Copenhagen, Denmark, a
couple of years ago, I picked
up a fridge magnet which
says "To Travel is to Live," a
quote of Hans Christian
Andersen. Having lived in
six of Canada's 10 provinces,
I have also been fortunate to
travel to places such as New
Zealand, Scandinavia,
France, Hawaii and recently
to Israel which was truly a
dream come true.
Not everyone is able to
travel or warits to travel
physically to the places I
have seen, but one can travel
in spirit through TV, videos
and books. At the Frierids of
the Library Used Bookstore,
one can purchase at very
low prices videos about
many countries and areas


until 4:30 p.m~ Tuesday
through Saturday. The phone

Books in several languages and

about several cultures available


Notes From The
Friends OTe
Sebring Library
Deane McArthur
throughout the world. We
also have a very large selec-
tion of travel books sorted
into two sections.
The first is to the right of
the fireplace and features
books from all over the
world. It is so easy to get lost
in thought while browsing
through this sect-ion ...
Africa, Australia, Great
Britain and even tiny Prince
Edward Island in Canada.
Also in the same area are
books written in languages
other than English and we
also have a few tapes which
teach other languages for a
do-it-yourself project.
The second section is on
the opposite side of the fire-
place room, and here one
'finds a great selection of
books from the various
states, parks and areas of the
United States. Some of these
books are historical, while
others are picture books and
still others are actual travel
guide books.
During the March Gallery
Walk night on March 27,
Heritage was the theme so
we featured our travel books
during that time. We also
served snacks' and had a
drawing for a gift certificate
to the store. Gallery Walk
night is always fun and I love
meeting all the folks who
*come through our doors then,
everyone is in a festive
mood.
,As .you know, the used
bookstore is manned entirely
by friendly volunteers who
give many hours of the week
sorting, pricing, shelving and
selling the donations we
receive both from the Sebring

After a two-game sweep of Pasco-Hernando Thursday,
to keep them tied for second in,conference and a sure
invite to the state tournament, the SFCC Indy Panthers
hosted Central Florida Saturday. In the first inning,
Franki Grimes lofts this pitch to right field to bring
home Kristin Salinder with a sacrifice fly. Salinder got
in under the tag at the plate by sliding, well, through
the Patriot catcher. Central Florida took a 2-1 lead in
the third, but the final outcome was not available at
press time.

Sedlock got the start
Demand pitched well

:C rain-delayed game
against Indian River.
"I felt all right, and

Here in central Florida
folks sure take their base-
ball serious, and traveling
around the county covering
games has introduced me
to some new and exciting
things including the "art"
of heckling. *
Knowing that baseball is
a mental game as well as a
physical one, it seems that
hecklers have a desire to
do anything they can to
affect the outcome of the
game with the delusion that
they are, in fact, able to do
so.
After taking notice of
those playing from the
stands, I have realized
there are several appropri-
ate times for heckling; bad
plays, bad officiating (or at
least, perceived bad calls),
random acts of drunken
belligerence, or because
you are a little-league par-
ent. .
The first heckle I really
took notice of was during a
South Florida Community
College game.
The game was really a
pitching duel and was
slowly grinding its way
through each inning, when
the visiting pitcher threw a
wild one that hit the back
fence. .
Immediately, an older
gentleman yelled into the
quiet night, "Yoko Ono has
better pitch control!"
The entire crowd cracked
up. -
I even.saw the djc~itcet
and the umpire cracking a
smile, and both dugouts
were full of laughter.
After that fateful night, I
began to seriously take
notice of some of the heck-


back was a little tight, but I
did my best to do what I could
to help the team."
Which wasn't so bad, going
four and two-thirds innings,~
and striking out six, though
four earned runs did come
across.
"We were keeping ah~ eye
on him, and he has some
tightness in his back, but he
was battling," head coach
Rick Hitt said. "He made one
mistake on a ball we wanted
in and up. He got it in, but
just not up enough."
That resulted in a shot over
the left-field fence by Adrian
Morales, though it was just a
solo home run.
"But we've been so erratic
offensively and, we're just
giving up too many unearned
runs," Hitt continued.
The four runs Sedlock gave
up were the only earned of the
10 Shark runs that scored, and
with a few missed offensive
opportunities, the game ended
much differently than it could
have.
"Twice we had the bases

The New School PickS
Alright Mr. Old School, so
you think that Magic Johnson
and Isaiah Thomas in their
little girls' shorts would
make Steve Nash and Kobe
Bryant look like a backcourt
of Will Ferrell and Woody
Harrelson. Well I think yoti
underestimate the value Nash
brings to a team that is
beyond the numbers and I
guarantee Kobe would give
Magic fits on defense. But
you gloat all you want
because my next three are
going take yours to school.
At small forward I take the
king himself, Mr. LeBron
James. You know what he is
doing this year? Only averag-
ing 30.9 points, 8 rebounds,
7.4 assists, 2 steals and a
block a game.
Yeah and have you seen
his team?
They stink, stank, stunk!
The best shooter on his
team is Daniel "Booby"
Gibson. And on the inside his
big go-to-guys are Ben
Wallace, Joe Smith and
Zydrunas Ilgauskas who liter-
ally have a combined age of
a HUNDRED!
Yet what has Bron done
with his grab bag of NBA B-
leaguers?
Well they are fourth in the
East, and trust me, after his
playoff run last year no one
wants to play them.
And let's talk last year.
Have any of your eighties
lads led such a lousy team to
the NBA Finals like James
did?


And to think if he had
gone to college he would be
a senior!
Can you imagine?
He would no doubted be
averaging at least 20 and 20.
Heck maybe 30 and 30!
But here is the thing, if he
keeps getting better, and big-
ger he could be averaging 20
and 20 in the NBA.
And here is another crazy
stat; he hasn't missed a start
or a game in his whole four-
year career.
He is just a beast plain and
simple. I think he would be a
hand full for anyone who has
ever played the game just as
he is now, but give him five
more years and yikes...he
will be a killer.
djo BAM' *
What you got now?
And don't get all geezery
on me and show hate that
two of my guys are young
and don't have champi-
uns ips, don't worry tey
will .

The Old School Picks
How could anyone in the
1980s compare to LeBron
James, Tim Duncan and
Dwight Howard?
One thing is for sure, in
2008, with ESPN, youtube
and nba.com, they certainly
have the hype.
Daniel, I'm just not sure
they have the goods to back
it up.
Anybody my age can think
of a small forward instantly.

See SCHOOLS, page 5D


Daniel Bedell


John Bedell


I mean what he did against
our beloved Pistons in the
Eastern Conference Finals
was just plain nasty.
I listened in pain to the
radio as he scored his teams
final 25 points, 29 or their
last 30 and 48 overall.
Just imagine if this guy
had some teammates that
weren't rejected by the
WNBA?
If he had some talent
around him I think you could
seriously be looking at him
averaging a triple double.
Not only that he makes
some pretty good commer-
cials.
Now at power forward I
am taking the Big
Fundamental, Mr. Tim
Duncan.
In ten seasons he has aver-
aged 21.7 points, 11.9
rebounds and 2.4 blocks a
game. Oh yeah and has been
an All-Star 10 times, All-
NB'A 10 times, All-Defense
10 times, MVP twice, Finals
MIVP thrice, and won four
championships.


Now granted I think he
probably is the NBA's
biggest baby, but this big
baby-could more than hold
his own against anyone from
twenty years ago.
He knows bow to win, he
knows how to whine, but he
really does know howu to win.
I saved my favorite for
last. Starting at celiter,
Florida's own, Dwight
"Superman" Howard!
Okay first off did you see
his dunks from the slam dunk
contest'?
If you didn't get on
YouTube right now and
watch four of the coolest
dunks ever.
I mean on his Superman
dunk he was so high in the
air he didn't even dunk it'
from like a foot about the rim
he just threw it in.
At just 22 years old in just
his fourth year in the NBA he
is averaging 21.7 points, 14.5
rebounds and 2.4 rebounds a
game and has more dunks
than like half of the teams in
the league.

LIN K LINGO
PAR: Where all scoring begins.At the turn1 of the centu-
ry, the concept started to emerge as the designated number
of strokes a "scratch," or excellent, player could be expect-
edl to take on a hole in ideal conditions.
BOGEY: One stroke over par. Although originally
th~e term meant a perfect score, coming from a song
popular in the United Kingdom in the early 1890s,
"The Bogey Man(" The character in the song was an elu-
sive figure who hid in the shadows: "I'm the Bogey Man,
catch me if you can."'
BIRDIE: One stroke under par. The term originated in
the United States in 1899. In 19th-century American
slagbird" referred to anyone or anything excellent or

EAGLE: Two strokes under par, or one better than a "bird."
Here are some other terms you're sure to become fa-
miliar with while you're learning the game:
BANANA BALL: Slang for a bad slice.
CHILl-DIP: To hit the gr-ound before hitting the ball.
CHOKE: To grip the club far down the shaft; to
become nervous during play.
DUFF: A bad swing that hits the ground
behind the ball first, then tops the ball.
DUFFER: An unskilled golfer.
HACKER: An untrained player.
MULLIGCAN: Not according to
strict rules; permission for a player to
replay a bad shot, usually a tee shot.
WHIFF: To miss the ball entirely
when making a stroke.
YIPS: A nervous affliction that
causes difficulty in putting.
19TH HOLE:The clubhouse bar.

BEING GREEN
In golf, more than in other sports,
etiquette an1d sportsmanship are val-
ued above winning. If you don't
want to look like a duffer, here's
how to behave:
Play in putting order: The play-
er who is farthest from the hole
putts first.
Mark your ball: Place a coin or
marker directly behind the ball,
then' pick up your ball. Don't re-
trieve your marker until after you've
returned your ball to its position.
Keep it down: Don't talk while
others are analyzing their shots or
hitting the ball. Stand quietly anld
out of the players' peripheral visibn.
Avoid putting lines: Never step on
your partners' intended putting lines to
the cup. Step over or walk around them,
even-though they're invisible.
Be "ready": Analyze your shot while
walking to your ball or waiting for another
player to putt. Be ready, take one practice
stroke, then hit your b~all.
Keep it clean: As you enter the green,
find and repair your own and others' -
ball marks.
Attend to the pin:If you're not putting first,
ask th~e player who is if he or she wants you to
remove the flag or stand by it and make sure .
to remove it after he or shie strokes the ball.

TO P TO U RN EY S
U.S. Open: One of the Big Ones, played on the
most challenging courses in the country.
U.S.Women's Open: Highly competitive event,
hosted by the Ladies Professional Golf Association.
The Masters: The other Big One. All ex-champions
invited to compete in this 66-year-old event held in Au-
gusta, Ga.; in 1997, Tiger Woods became the ydungest
Masters champ.

of lofts for shots up to 110 yards)


Sand wedge up to 80 yards (designed for play
from sand, but can be used from
fairway)


TH EHIO LE STO R Y
: Historians believe the word "caddie" can be traced to
Mary, Queen of Scotts, who was a passionate golfer as a
young girl. When she was away at school in France, she
had young men, "cadets" pronouncedd "cad-day"), carry
her clubs for her.
!$ One of the earliest mentions of golf in America dates
from 1650. According to the minutes of the upstate New
York Dutch colony, a man named Jacob Jansz attacked a
tavern keeper with a golf club.
:r The tee, which ranks with metal~woods an~d the sand
wedge as one of golf's most important inventions, has been
around a while. George Franlklin Grant, an African7-American
dentist from Boston, patented the first wooden tee in 1899-
'; The white, dimpled golf balls of today bear little re- -
semblance to those of yesteryear. Before the arrival of rub-
ber, golfers played with a "featheryj ball," a fragile leather
pouch filled with boiled goose feathers.
clGolf was played in the Olympics until 1904. In 1908,
because of a dispute and an ensuing boycott, only one entrant
showed up. Golf has not been part of the Olympics sin~ce.
: Astronaut Alan B. Shepard surprised earthly golfers
during a mission to the moon in Felbruary 1971 when he
dropped two golf balls onto the surface and then using a
6-iron and a orie-arm swing sent the orbs flying into the
barren landscape. Upon his return to Earth, the Royal and
Ancient Club sent him a telegram: "'Warmest congratula-
tions to all of you on your great achievement and safe re-
turn. Please refer to Rules of Golf section on etiquette, para-
graph 6 'Before leaving a bunker, player should carefill-
ly fill up all holes made by him therein:" The 6-iron used
by Shepard is on display at the U.S. Golf Association muse-
um in Far Hills, N.J.

Tak ea swing at golf.


Go on.





















"I have a tip that can

take five strokes of~f

anyone's golf game.
It's call an eraser."

-- Arnold Palmer


stick and star-ted hitting rocks into holes, the
sports world has been captivated by the game
called golf simple, addictive and virtually
impossible to master.
e The idea is to hit a 1.62-ounce ball into a hole
in the fewest number of str-okes possible. That's the cor~e of
it, but the game has gotten a wee bit mnore complex since its
beginnings along the coast of Scotland.

WH Y NOT 1 9 HOLES ?
Since the 1700s, St. Andr~ews has been considered the
golfmng center of Scotland, the ancestral home of the game.
The Royal & Ancient Club at St. Andr~ews, formed in the
1770s, became the custodian of the game, so everybody
played by its rules and the golf course at St. Andrews
had I8 holes. (The United States IGolf Association came on
the scene in I894.)

EQ UIPPED TO0 A TEE
Today's golfer- is confronted by a mind-boggling array of
equipment, usually accompanied by hefty price tags. But all
you really need are three woods, seven irons, a wedge and a
putter. You can add all types of alluring woods or wedges,
but the rules say you can't carry more than 14 clubs. '
The putter can be a golfer's best friend or worst ene-
my. The styles and designs seem endless, making which to
buy a golfer's most personal purchase. There are no hard-
and-fast rules; if it feels right, it probbably is


Driver 200-240 yards (the most dowerful
club in the bag)
3-wood 190-220 yards (the standard
fairway distance wood)
5-wood 170-190 yards (useful from
the rough)
7-wood 160-180 yards (increasingly popular
as an "escape from trouble"' club)
1-iron 190-210 yards (rarely used;
difficult to master)
2-iron 180-200 yards (rarely used;
superseded by wide range of
metal fairway woods)
, 3-iiroL_, 170-190 yards (the longest iron in
a standard set)
4Q-iron 160-180 yards (essentially a
distance iron, but the shorter shaft
gives more control)
5-iron 150-170 yards (places as much
emphasis on accuracy as length)
6-iron 140-160 yards (the iron that many
players find the easiest to use)
S7-iron 130-150 yards (accuracy and
control are ktey elements with
this shorter iron)
8-iron 120-140 yards (offers consistent
length and accuracy)
9-iron 110-130 yards (very much a
potential shot-saver)

I've seen better legs olY'
my couch!
Way to stretch that triple
into a single!.
Only he could make a
good play go bad.
And, my all time favorite,
yelled out by a mom to her
son at a Dixie Youth game;
- Use your glove honey, it's
paid for!
Well, that's all the ones my
editor and censors would
allow me to put in a newspa-
per,
I hope you enjoyed them,
as I have, but please remem-
ber that ~those who truly
understand the "art" know
that heckling is not to be
used as a blunt object, but as
a sharp tapier.


took them to the champi-
onship game against
Michigan State in 1979?
Can you name, one other
player in Indiana State histo-
ry? Enough said.
Probably one of Bird's best
leadership acts came in the
1984 NBA Finals.
After the Lakers demol-
ished Boston 137-104 in
game three, Bird told the
media, "We played like
sissies ."
A reporter asked what the
team needed to turn it
around. "Twelve heart trans-
plants," Bird told him.
The Celtics won game four
and went on to win the series
in seven games.
When ESPN asked Magic
Johnson about Larry Bird for
the Sports.Century special,
~he said. "When I played,
Larry Bird was the only one I
feared. A lot of black guys
always ask me, 'Did Larry
Bird really play that good?' I
said Larry Bird is so good
it's frightening."
And my son was born in
Indiana. Can you believe it?


Power forward is a pretty
obvious choice. Why not go
with the guy that finished his
career with 36,928 points
second only behind Kareem
Abdul-Jabbar.
The Mailman, Karl Maone,
also got to the free throw line
more times than any player in
NBA history and he pulled .
down more defensive
rebounds than any other play~
er.
From the 1987-88 season
toa the 1997-1998 season'
Malone averaged 25 points
per game or more.
He.was on the first All-
NB-A team 11 times.
The six-foot-nine Malone
could handle his own against
Tim Duncan. And since you
mentioned the WNBA,
Malone is also the father of
Cheryl Ford, a WNBA cham
pion with the Detroit Shock.
Dwight Howard is a young
marvel. I remember another
young marvel in an Orlando
uniform.
I remember him getting
schooled in the 1995 NBA
finals by an outstanding cen-


ter.
You are old enough to .
remember Hakeem Olajuwon
putting the moves on Shaq in
the four game sweep.
"He's got about five
moves, then four counter-
moves," said a stunned
O'Neal. That gives him 20
moves ."
I can certainly imagine
Howard looking just as
st nnd
un ehat 1994-1995 season
Hakeem was the league MVP,
the Finals MVP and he won
his second Defensive Player
of the year award-
Is that dominant enough
for you?
One year earlier he led the
Rockets to a seven-game win
in the fmnals against the
Knicks and Patrick Ewing.

29Thepointrs 9. r andesdand
3.86 blocks against the
"defensive" Knicks.
So you-keep LeBron, Tim
and Dwight. I'll be real
happy with Larry, Karl and
Hakeem.

He was not as athletic as -
LeBron and definitely not as
rich at the beginning of his
career.
He did become a legend.
In fact, at the end of his
career he was often called
Larry Legend.
You talked stats first.
In the Celtics' 1985-1986
championship season, Bird
was in the top ten in five dif-
ferent categories.
He averaged 25.8 points
per game, pulled down 9.8
rebounds per game, shot .896
at the free throw line and
.423 behind the three point
line and averaged two steal;
per night.
How could any one player
lead a mediocre team to the
championship series like
Lebron did last year? -
I can think of one more
impressive run than that.
How far has Indiana State
gone in the NCAA tourna-
ment since Larry Joe Bird
