SEBRING -. After four months of rehab,
an injured bald eagle has returned to the
Highlands County skies once again.

Audubon Center for Birds of Prey in
Maitland since December, and joins an esti-

After years of trouble in the 1960s, the
oince-dying breed has escaped the endangered
species list and now boasts numbers near


100,000 'but with a fractured wing, this
bird needed help.
A resident of the Oak Shores fish camp on
U.S. 98 in Spring Lake first reported the

unrelated, but all were cho-

signed up for the
Community College Week
celebration at South Florida
Community College.
It wasn't like this last year
- when only 30 people
competed compared to this

"It's great the administra-

said David Michener, hired
this year as the director of
student activities. "We're
trying to give back to the
students."
With the semester winding
down, students are interact-

other for at least a year -
The week-long competi-
tion is a four-day chance for
students to wind down after
the long year.
"It's fun, so you aren't


stressed for finals coming
up," said Gerrard Coleman, a
member of the Red Hot Chili

Five finalists selected by

commissioners Tuesday

SEBRING Gary "Andy" Hall of
Henderson, Nev., is the commissioners' strong
card in a hand of five finalists for county
administrator.
Hall is planning manager for Henderson,
about 15 miles from Las Vegas.
Drawing from a deck of 13, they produced
four of a kind.
All but one is from outside Florida. All but
one is currently employed. All but one has
been employed by a city or county govern-
ment. All but one is a civilian.
The odd man out shifts based on the criteria.
David Lair, administrator, Geauga County,
Ohio, and chief financial officer for Newbury
Township, Ohio, is the board's wild card.
His story is on page 2A of Sunday's News-
Sun and in the business section of
newssun .com.
Lair, who considers himself a long shot for
the position, received only two votes when the
commissioners voted on the finalists.
After selecting four strong candidates, they
voted between Lair and Mike Shalati, the for-
mer garnering three votes.
Hall was the only candidate to receive ~five
votes.
Michael J. Wright, assistant city manager
for development and transportation,
Tallahassee, received four.

Board hears

lesson on

Sunshine Law
By KEVIN J. SHUTT

SEBRING County
administrator Carl Cool had
lunch with Commissioners C.
Guy Maxcy and Don Bates
during Tuesday's hour-long
break fr-om the county com-
mission meeting.
They ate at Galati's Family
Restaurant, across the street
from the Government Center.
Ironically, upon their
return, County Attorney Ross
MacBeth raised his concerns
about how open meetings
laws apply to the April 23
community meet-and-greet
with the five finalists for
county administrator.
"I just ask all of you to
keep in mind the risk of a
Sunshine Law violation:
despite a notice, is greater,
MacBeth said, explaining the
social gathering will be held
in an informal manner and
could result commissioners
being within earshot of con-
versations about issues on
which they may later vote.
MacBeth's concern was
triggered by a public notice
of the event as a "meeting."
As such, explained Senior
Director of Business Services
Bob Jamison, the Clerk of
Courts is required to keep
minutes, a nearly impossible
task given the format.
Instead, the meet-and-greet
will be advertised as an event
at which~two or more com-
missioners are expected to be
present.
MacBeth's concern
sparked discussions ~about
what is allowed, and what is
not, according to Florida's
Government In The Sunshine
Law that prohibit two or more
members of a voting body
from discussing outside a
properly noticed meeting
items they may eventually
decide.
Even during a public meet-
ing, should ~two~ members lean
back in their chairs for pri-
vate sidebar conversations,
they would violate the~ law,
MacBeth said.
MacBeth said there hcve
been prosecutions of elected
officials who appeared
together, even though there
wasn't direct evidence they
discussed matters they'd vote

oThough the elected offi~
cials won, MacBeth said the
county would be better

He said the Sunshine Law

So long as Maxcy, Bates
and Cool kept their lunchtime
discussions focused on base-
ball, agriculture, potential
political campaigns or any-
thing else of a personal
nature, they're not in viola-
tion of any state laws.

advice to the commissioners
was not on y to avoid vio at-
ing the Sunshine Law, but
also to avoid the appearance.

to see if a date change would
even be feasible.
More than 300 letters were
sent to vendors on the CRA's
mailing list soliciting their
input, but so far only 32 have
come back. The results are
split "pretty much 50-50" so
far, Pollard said. However,
CRA Executive Assistant
Robin Hinote said the vendors
against the move are
"adamant" that the date stay
the same.
With so few responses in,
Pollard said there isn't enough
information yet on the possi-
ble impacts of a date
e'echange .
"We're not getting
ing at what we feel is a
ions.truly representative
ronS.a response yet," he
t'sall said. He stressed,
Sdoinlg both in the letter and
to the CRA board,
now.' that no date change
was .imminent.
ETE *"We're looking at
LARD options. That's all
director we're doing fight
n1ow."
Even if a date change were
to be agreed upon for the festi-
val, it likely would not apply
to next year's show, Pollard
.said, because vendors tend to
make their schedules a year in
advance.
"It's possible we could do it
this year, but it probably
wouldn't be very prudent,"
Pollard said.
CRA Chairman Gene
Breniler said he was open to
moving the Roaring '20s
Festival after next year's
show, in part because the items
on display would make better
Christmas presents than items
in an art festival.

SEBRING Three art fes-

Executive Director

it asked whether the POL
CRA would be inter- CRA (
ested in taking over
the league's November slot.
"The fact that we have three
shows, two ih Sebring and one
in Lake Placid, back-to-back
in a month's time, has to have
an impact in attendance and
involvement," Pollard said.
No decision has been made
by the Art League to change
its dates, and the discussions
so far between the Art League
and the CRA have been held in
an informal matter. But before
beginning the formal process
of discussing a possible move,
Pollard wants to solicit input
from the vendors that come 'to

Highlands County Administrator Carl Cool exchanges pleasantries with Avon Park council
member Joe Wright after Monday's city council meeting. Cool was on hand to up-date the
council on HOME AGAIN grant funding from the state. Both the city and county want to
improve communication between the governments.


0001 briefs AP council on grants


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christophzer.tu~ffeyI@ newssrn .com
AVON PARK Highlands County
Administrator Carl Cool visited the Avon Park
City Council Monday night bringing with him
Mandy Hines, the county's housing director.
They were there to bring the council up to
date regarding emergency grant money the
county had obtained from the state following
the hurricanes of 2004.
Called HOME AGAIN funds, the money
wais a one-time emergency allocation from the
state, administered by the county on behalf of
the city.
The grant arrived in February 2005, at a
time when the Heartland was still doing recov-
ery work and everything,was disorganized or
temporary. The county did not think to offer,
nor did the city think to ask for, monthly
reports keeping track of the grant money.
There were monthly reports, but they were
being shipped directly to the Florida Housing
Finance Corporation, the source of the fund-
ing.
In fact, the lack of the city's paperwork


might never have been missed except for the
annual audit, which found the discrepancy. ,
According to the county's records, four
families received assistance to rebuild or
repair their storm damaged homes; accounting
for $189,487.05 of the $300,000 grant.
The remaining $110,512.50 was never uti-
lized.
Hines has written in the past that, at the
time, several applicants had been found to be
ineligible for a variety of reasons, and other
originally interested individuals opted out of
the program upon discovering the money
received was a loan which would have to be
returned if they ever sold the house.
Cool told the council that a~separate pro-
gram the State Housing Initiatives
Program, also administered by the county -
has helped 95 city homeowners rehab their
homes, assisted 52 families purchase homes
for a total of $920,879.59.
"We do appreciate your cooperation and
patience," Cool said, "It's wonderful to work
with you. We were remiss and for that I apol
ogize."

grade classes at Fred Wild Elementary School.
The FFA members received a copy of the
book, lessons and packets in preparation for
the event, bookmarks and other goodies that
were distributed in the classrooms they visit-
ed.
According to FFA advisor Gary Lee, the
FFA members really look forward to this event
each year when they get a chance to interact
with elementary students ~regarding the
tremendous importance of Florida agriculture
to the state and national economy. The agri-
culture industry is second to the tourism
industry in terms of economic impact to the
state's~ economy. Approximately 20 percent of
the workforce is `employed in some phase of
the agriculture/agribusiness industry.


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING On April 10, eight members
of' the Sebring FFA Chapter participated in
"F~lorida Agriculture Literacy Day." They
jo ined hundreds of Florida agriculture mndus-
tryl volunteers and many FFA members from
chapters throughout Florida in visiting ele-
m entary classrooms to tell the story of Florida
agriculture.
"These Florida Farms," developed by the
FI orida Department of Agriculture Marketing
Division, celebrates the fifth anniversary of
Fl orida Agriculture Literacy Day. The
rh yming story chronicles the adventures of
tw~ro students who follow a safari guide around
th e state from grocery to farms to learn about
th~e different commodities produced in Florida.

Many thanks from cheerleaderS
Editor:
It is once again time to say a very big ~
'thank you" to a lot of very special peo-
ple in our community. I am the
advisor/coacly of the varsity cheerleading
team at Sebring High School. Every year
I am so grateful for the continued support
of our parents, administration, school
board, Sebring Firemen Inc., and various
community business people. Without this ,
continued support, our program could not
continue at the level for which we have
become known throughout the state.
I would like to first thank the Sebring
Firemen who continue to support our
community athletes. Without this group
of self-less men many of our sports
would not have the opportunities that we
do. To Jenny Rowe and The Edge Cheer
center who have greatly enhanced our
tumbling and stunting skills. To Terry
Quarles, athletic director; and Toni
Stivender, principal, once again we are so
blessed to have such a great team to work
for. Thank you for always trying to help
in any way possible and being some of
our biggest fans!
A very special "thanks" to my husband
for all the late nights and long weekends.
To Maurice Williams, Tammy Williams'
Erin Byrne and Natalie Grubb who did a
wonderful job "coaching" our cheerlead-
ers ... thank you for your long hours and
hard work in niaking our programs what
they are today. To the cheerleading
booster club, headed by Tammy
Hancock: There are not enough words to
ohank ru fer .ur endless h Hont tboeshtelp
parents ever: You put in countless hours
of time and money helping your child be
a part of our program. We would not
make it without you.
And last but not least to what I have
always considered (and now our team has
the trophy and our state's recognition to
prove it), the very best group of cheer-
leaders in the state. We have had many
wonderful memories and great times this
year never forget what you can accom-
plish when you work together toward
your goals
We are so proud to represent our
school and community in the various
competitions across the state and in the
nation .

politiclC8 COffedneSS
Editor:
We all are aware of the problems our
country is up against. There may as well .
be another Civil War going on for all the
antics "out there," but I have come across
something else that can be~ a warning or a
source of more contention. To our detri-
ment, I imagine it will be the latter.
There is a constant outpouring of free
spheecchhregarding thea n t of it: f
Nobody should be forced by any govern-
ing body to worship any god they do not
wish to. We all should have the~ right to
choose our own idol. However, in the
Judeo-Cbh stian Bilbdle, there isda warning
tat pro h ly sol be noticed an
ta en to heart-
MIn its NewcTestament, in the book of
Matew, in capter 1, verse 2, it
states, "Every kingdom divided against
itself is brought to deso aion ..." ( ing
James Version) and in another edition,
the New International Version, that same
verse reads, "every kingdom divided
against itself will be ruined." Both of
them say every kingdom. Those are very
powerful, ominous statements.
Further on in verse 29 it notes that no
one can steal from a strong man without
tyilig him up first, and "then he can rob
his house." Folks, this is what we are in
the midst of right now. This "kingdom"
of America is in dire straits. We are so
tied up by political correctness that we
refuse to see what is happening before
Our very eyes and partly because of this
action we are being robbed: of our free-
doms and our uniqueness. The rest of the
reason behind our danger is the same as
every other great and powerful nation in
world history we put ourselves first and
refuse to acknowledge that there is only
one true o.
We can rant and argue and protest till
we are hoarse and exhausted, but we
need to face the truth if America is to
live on.

help with problems
Editor:
I'm getting a lot of blessings but have
three special ones this past month.
Dr. Tolentino saved my eye with the
prayers from Rev. Ron DeGenaro and St.
John church family.
If you need help with getting a garage
door opener fixed, call Southwood
Builders Supply. a very kind man from
there fixed my opener for a reasonable
price.
My third blessing was calling again
Fidenco Rodriguez to clean my yard and
flowerbeds .
I hope this will help others to call on
these people.
Thank you News-Sun.

clomthi point, I decided to stop

tilate-consuming, but it was possible.)
If' this was the worst that could
o ccur, I decided I could handle it.
In an effort to go along with this
new mind frame, I proceeded to
begin a project that needed to be
a accomplishedd. Focus, I thought,
focus on the task at hand. After
going through the day's tasks, I dis-
clovered it. As I pulled forward the
ci~river's seat ill my car, there was my
Inissing schedule. I must have over-
looked it when I searched through
t:he car earlier. I didn't know whether
too jump for joy or breathe a sigh of
Relief, so I did both.
At this point in time, I realized
what it must be like for the Father to
ihave one of his lost to come back to
hIim. Although my searching was
!small, His is much greater. The feel-
jing of relief when you know that the
missing is safe. The joy that is over-
.whelming when you know that they
are no longer lost. It was here, stand-
ing beside my car that I was thankful
for no longer being lost. I w~as thank-
ful that I was safe, in His arms. I
hugged onto that little schedule a bit
longer, imagining the hug that my
Father~ gave me when I came back to
Him.
I sighed. Perhaps my search was
not in vain. Not only had I found the
item, but I was reminded of an eter-
nal truth. I smiled and my frustration
faded away.

War of the words


one nobody will win

Sticks and stones may break your bones but words
will never hurt you.
We all know this saying is a crock. Words can cause
far more lasting pain and damage than a broken arm or

lehis is all the more true in today's world of the
Internet and instant messaging. Words travel so much
further and faster, are heard and seen by so many more
people that their power has grown exponentially.
Worse, once the words are out, there is no bringing
them back.
But technology is only one piece of our brave new
world .
What we are having trouble understanding is why
there is such a breakdown in personal responsibility and
connection with others.
So many people are just plain self indulgent and
impulsive, spewing out streams of bitter, nasty noise
meant to hurt. It is heartbreaking to see how many indi-
viduals take pride in being hateful.
Friends are turning on friends, using the Internet in
ways we hope its early pioneers never envisioned.
Yet there is a growing group of Web sites whose only
function is to provide a place for people to insult one
another.
Where is all the angry venom coming from, and why?
Why are we turning on ourselves?
Because it isn't just teenagers.
Take the terrible case up in Mulberry, where a group
of girls ganged up on one of their own, beating her into
unconsciousness because of words she had used against
h tem .
As if the incident itself weren't enough, now adults
have gotten into the act. The addresses and phone num-
bers of the families have been posted online, and they
are receiving crank calls; some threatening violence,
some timed to disturb sleep.
According to The (Lakeland) Ledger, one couple
being harassed is not only not involved, they don't even
have children. It was their misfortune to have the same
last name of one of the families.
Here's the twisted joke someone hears about the
beaten girl and~in his or her upset over the violence, .
strikes out violently and then feels like a~hero.
Are we becoming a nation of bullies? '
Is our only answer to strike out?
Certainly we see the world changing around us. We
live in times of change and reformation, always unset-
tling aild uneas .
And when the changes bring a need to sacrifice it
makes it all the harder
But we cannot lose what has made America its
strongest our collective sense of community and
Basic fairness
We have to fight back. And that can only be done one
person at a time.
We adults have to set a better example.
We parents have to keep a closer, more protective eye
on our children
In a world filled with car bombs, torture, rape and
early death we need to keep our young ones' focused on
the positive
It may seem as if evil is overwhelming, but that will
only happen if we let it overwhelm us. We are stronger
and better than that
And these times, like all times, will pass.
The question is, will we work together and survive, or
give in and kill ourselves off?



An important meeting

Just in time for the Town Hall Meeting set for
Thursday, members of the Highlands County Coalition
foi Susbtance Abuse Reduction does a mass e-mail to
interested parties of a Web site touting April as Alcohol
Aw areness Month
The Web site article is not geared just to teens, though
it does mention college students who binge drink at
local bars and high school teens who sneak drinks
before football games or at unsupervised parties. It also
mentions the professionals who drink after a long work
day, seniors who drink out of loneliness and pregnant
women who cause serious damage to their unborn
babies.
According to neadi.samhsa.gov, in 2003 almost 23
percent, or 54 million, of Americans participated in
binge drinking within 30 days of taking a national sur-
vey. That same year, about 21.6 million adults abused
alcohol or were alcohol dependent. .
And these numbers reflect only the alcohol abuse;
they don't begin to reflect the other types of substances
being abused. "
Thursday's Town Hall Meeting is an opportunity for
county residents to hear more about what is going on
here in our own county. There will be testimonies by
substance abusers as well as the testimony of an indi-
vidual who lost a relative in a DUI wreck.
The keynote speaker comes from the Florida Office of
Drug Control and a panel discussion will include com_
ments from a prosecutor in the state attorney's office, an
intervention specialist with The School Board of
Highlands Count a police officer, a school resource
officer, a member of the DARE Advisory Youth
Advisory Board and other students and parents.
It's a meeting that should be attended by everyone in
the community who cares. It starts at 5 p.m. with
exhibits being open as early as 4 p.m. at the Sebring
Civic Center.

"They add so much to our lives.
They are bubbly and bouncy and
energetic," she said. "It's funl to see
how much they grow and give back
to us."
Klostermann is crucial to the
school, said principal Pam Burnham.
"She is willing to do whatever is
necessary for the students and
school to be successful," Burnham
said.
Principal Kaye Bowers said the
exact same thing when describing
her first impression of Highlands
County Teacher of the Year Jon
Spencer.
He is a team player, has excep-
tional leadership skills, and accepts
challenges, she said.
A graduate of Indiana State
University, Spencer laughed and
confessed he came to Highlands
County as a joke.


He met Bowers at a recruitment
fair and said he would listen to a,
recruiter from Florida with n~o inten-
tion of relocating but the joke
was on him.
"(Bowers) kept at me and finally I
decided to check it out," he said. "I
really liked the area and the people
and thought it would be a nice place
for a year."
Spencer is in his eighth year, and
the rest of the story is history.
Soon he would meet his wife and
fall in love.with not only her, but his
new home.
Bowers said that playful personal-
ity comes into play in the classroom.
"He loves to use humor with
teaching," she said. "(.His students)
laugh constantly, it is a beautiful
thing to watch happen."
"It's an adjustment coming from a
big city t'o Sebring,' Spencer said.
"But I've become a small-town guy. ~
It's a great place to work."

ing his cards close to his

"One homeowner reported
their car alarm went off and
they saw someone fleeing the

He couldn't remember if

steal something more valu-
able than the iP ds and digital

If the thief or thieves con
tinue to force entry into a

chance they will be caught.
"A bad guy can open 100
car doors and go undetected
until something goes miss-
ing Tramer said.
But breaking windows or
forcing a car door open makes
more noise than just opening
a door, he said, increasing th

Commissioner Donl Bates
concurred, noting the impor-
tance of the decision at their
hands
Commissioner C. Guy
Maxcy. during the voting that
narrowed their short list to
four people, wrote in Ken
Wheeler, director, Highlands
County Solid Waste.
"I believe he should be
given consideration because
he's been in county govern-
ment 27 years," Maxcy said,
suggesting Wheeler be the
fifth finalist.
Wheeler applied for county
administrator and made
Baenziger's Tier 2 list and
was among the 50 or so appli-
cants considered by a citizen
selection committee.
More than 80 had applied.
Lair edged out Shalati, who
was fired from his post as
Union County, N.C., adminis-


trator and left in his wake a
$600,000 severance package
lawsuit and an FBI probe into
how water and sewer capacity
permits were issuedl.
The board voted unani-
mously to cover 100 percent
of the expenses to fly th-e can-
didates andi spouses to
Highlands County.
Baenziger estimated $4,200
for the applicants andi $2,,100
for spouses. The board
approved $6,300 for travel'
room and board.
Their activities will include
the April 23 social, which is
open to the public, followed
by two days of pr-ivate inter-
views \vith the commissioners
and a public interview before
the board April 26.
During their stay, the can-
didates will be taken on tours

.Op'en to the public, the
meeting originally targeted
the parents and adults of the
community but enthusiasm
from the teenagers changed
the direction, Lees said,
explaining young and older
are invited.
"I think each one of these
people has an incredible
story,". she said of the pan-
elists.


It was established, howev-
er, that no police off cer cur-
rently drives home out of
county, that the police depart-
ment is under budget on its
fuel allotment line, that the
,city has the contractual right
to end the city car take-home
policy and that any plan bene-
fiting police officers will also
have to apply to other city
departments and take-home
cars.
The issue will be brought
up again at the April 28 meet-
ing.


While Councilman Joe
Wright weighed several fac-
tors he was concerned
sharing cars would lead to a
weakened sense of ownership
and added wear and tear on
the cars, while expressing
concern for some of the high-
mileage -commutes. He ulti-
mately voted with Hall and
AIJoe Hinson agreeing to the
police department's request to
postpone action for two meet-
ings and allow the police to
come up with a possible com-
promise plan.

The pair from Maitland

area it was reported injured

The birds are territorial,.so

clear that the department
might be better off without
that kind of officer Gray
questioning the dedication of
individuals who would quit
over the issue and Schuler
pointing out the city hasn't
grown while the police
department has doubled in
size, so some reduction of
staff would be a good thing.
Schuler then gave a warn-
ing of her own the sheriff's
office could easily take over
law enforcement for the city,
she said, and the police
department be disbanded alto-
gether.

HaDI, o he oMtayr hander ae
it clear he supported the
police .
"The police officers depend
on (their cars) to get to and
from work," he said. "It
would be $3-4,000 out of
their pocket (to lose them).
Heck, yeah they're going to
look for another job. I can't
blame them for wanting to
better themselves."
He added that the cost of
replacing officers would be
expensive and the process dif-
ficult, far off-setting the pro-
posed savings.
He also wanted to know
where all the police cars
would be parked when not in
use..

Special to the News-Sun .
SEBRING Perspective is an
idea of the relative importance of
Things and is often-gained through
time and experience.
Can you imagine how a per-
son's perspective would be
shaped living through the terms
of the last 18 presidents, the
Great Depression, both World
Wars, the rise and fall of
communism, the transi-
tion from horse and buggy
to automobiles, from tele- I
graph to telephone, radio
to television, watching the -
first man walk on the ;
moon (live), the birth of
five children, 26 grand- RI
children, 18 great-grand-
children and three great-goreat-
grandchildren; the perspective
that could be gained over the last
102 years?
To really understand what this
would be like, you only need to
go to Florida Hospital Heartland
Division, Sebring cafeteria and
spend some time with volunteer
Grace Rutt.
,Grace has been volunteering in
the cafeteria at Florida Hospital
or-seven years. Beyond the> pink


volunteer jacket, she is easily
identified by her warm smile.
She looks forward to the days
she volunteers because everyone
is so friendly and she enjoys the
friendships and people.
She stays plenty busy outside
of the home, including cooking
for herself and family.
In asking several .Florida
Hospital employees about
Grace, the responses
ranged from energizerr
bunny ... just keeps going
*- and going,"l "always has a
smile on her face" to ."the
Most tender-hearted person
I have ever known."
utt Farnily in Arizona,
California, Colorado,
Florida, New York, North
Carolina, Pennsylvania, and
Texas would surely echo these
,thoughts.
She is often asked what keeps
her going. Grrace will tell you she
was raised on a farm, raised her
family on a farm, grew their own
food, never smoked, never drank,
but doesn't really have an answer
other than, "The Lord. is keeping
me goingT~here must be more he
has for mrelt'o do."-i i:


The family plans to continue the
celebration in June when daughter
Jillian receives her master's in reli-
gious education and grandson Samuel
Joseph graduates high school with
honors and enters Michigan State
University.

SEBRING The Citrus
Chapter of the Pennsylvania
Association of School
Retirees at a recent meeting,
decided to join with Goin'
Postal in its quest to support
the military and their fami-
lies. Used cell phones will be
collected and sent to a com-
pany where usable parts are
sold. The moiley is used to
Sbuy phone cards to send to
our troops. Contributions will
be made to the Fisher House
Foundation. These houses are
at 38 Veteran Administration
hospitals and military instal-
lations. There are three VA
hospitals in Florida. The
Foundation provides housing,
at no charge, to families of
the military as the recuperate
at a veteran's medical center.
Mr. and Mrs. Alan Decker,
owners of Goin' Postal in
Sebring,. will collect the used
cell phones and items for the
Fisher Houses, such as
games, toiletries, and non-


perishable food; as .well as
checks made to the Fisher
House Foundation. Mrs.
Decker gave a very enlighten-
ing presentation to the Citrus
Chapter members on March
3, which explained the needs
of the military and their fami-
lies, and how the members
could be of assistance in this
on-going project.
Currently, there are more
than 150,000 service personal
serving abroad. Many have
spouses at home trying to
Keep some normalcy in their
lives. They are coping with
children, illness, transporta-
tion problems, financial wor-
ries, etc. Dependents need
help with babysitting, tutor-
ing, advocating for services,
simple house repairs, finan-
cial guidance, and much
more. The troops always like
to receive mail; so sending a
note or a card is a thoughtful
gestilre.
Many of the PASR mem-
bers have served in the armed


forces and know first-hand
the effect that having a family
member in the military can
have on the rest of the family.
The PASR, through the
Community Service
Committee of each local
chapter, will assist the mili-
tary and their families in
some of the ways mentioned.
Tom Schmoyer, PASR's state
community service chairman.
said in the recent PASR
Newsletter, ...we are not
advocating one way or the
other about the war;: we are
simply trying to support our
service personnel and their
families.
Citrus Chapter draws mem-
bers from a five-county area
of mid-Florida, from I-4
south to Lake Okeechobee.
The chapter is part of Out of
State Region 13. There are 11
chapters from New Jersey
down the. coast to Florida;
where~ there are eight
throughout the state.

For her work in Vietnam,
Justesen was chosen as an
"Outstanding Young Woman

work in Africa, she was cho-
sen to be listed in "Who's Who

she served overseas.
She also spent time in

sion that would set the stage
for every future career deci-

love of workingg with people
aund natural sciences. Nursing
is a perfect blend of both of
those worlds."
For more than 15 years'
Heston worked in nursing in
Highlands County. She
became an SFCC adjunct
instructor in 1985 and a full-
time instructor in 1997. She is
actively involved in numerous
professional and community
organizations.
Kevin Brown, dean, SFCC
Division of Applied Sciences

experience in nursing, her
commitment to education, and
her service to the community,
"I believe Michele will do a

AVON PARK On April
8, Michele Heston became
South Florida Community
College's director of Nursing
Education, following the
retirement of Dr. Mary Ann
Fritz.
A native of Tampa, Heston
moved to Avon Park with her
family in the late 1970s. After
attending SFCC as a fresh-
man, she earned her bachelor
of science degree in nursing
from the University of South
Florida and her master of sci-
ence degree in nursing from
Clarkson College. She is cur-
rently working on her doctor-
ate in educational leadership,
with a specialization in higher
education, in a program
offered by Barry University
through the SFCC University
Center.
Heston's foray into nursing
began when she was 17 arid
took a job as a nursing assis-
tant to help pay her college
tuition. "I not only found a
career path but a personal pas-


nursing industry well in
Highlands County. She partic-
ipates in nursing activities at
the state and national level,
and she has proven herself as
an instructor here for more
than 11 years."
Heston said her love of the
college as well as its students
and faculty moved her to pur-
sue the director's position. "I
received a tremendous
amount of support and


encouragement from the col-
lege to grow professionally,
and this was a wonderful
opportunity for me.
"It is my desire to inspire
my staff and students with
firm but compassionate lead-
ership. It is a privilege to
serve the college, my commu-
nity, my students, and my out-
standing colleagues in the
role of director of Nursing

Throughout the season, residents at Reflections on Silver Lake have had numerous
fundraisers for the American Cancer Society, March of Dimes and the American Heart
Association. Heading up the fundraising were Barb and Ken Giese (far left), Betty
Robinson (second from right) and Pat Farrer (far right), affectionately known around
Reflections as the Hustler Honeys. On April 2, the Honeys presented checks for
$1,235 to Rick Moyer (center) of the American Cancer Society and Erica lavely (left of '
Moyer) of the March of Dimes. A local representative was not available, so a check for
$1,235 was 'sent to the American Heart Association. Reflections residents are proud to
contribute to more than 30 non-profit organizations annually.

the Sebring offense was a two-RBI single from Stephanie Decker and an insurance run was added in the
fifth with Caitlin Hill tripling and scoring on an error.
20 YEARS AGO

ing ended in a tie with Jackson and Winter Haven's David Saliba but a coin flip went Saliba's way.

And with the same deter-
mined focus that has gotten
Whitney this far, she already

her move to the next level.
"I need to keep working on'
all parts of my game, to be
that much better," she said.
"I'll really be working on my
catch-and-shoot, getting the
release quicker. It's so much
faster at that level."
The move north, she is also
preparing for.
"I'll need to get a bigger

Congratulations to Whitney

ment, and continued success
as she continues on her path,
Going about it the she
always has, and with likely
similar results.

~And one of those came
right after he had sunk an 80-
footer that got him back to
five under, and I was think-
ing, "OK, here he goes Here
comes the charge of two or
three birdies in a row, four in
the next five holes, and he'll
be at nine-under and have
Immelman crumbling like
Sergio or Rory."
He sinks the 80-footer,
then is within five or six feet
on the very next hole for
birdie and yips it.
I think that's when his
chances ended, right there.
He would gack and hackna


couple others, but that was
his chance for momentum
right there.
Make that one and the
chills start, that Tiger mojo
begins to rnount and the -
attack over the next few
holes would have been on.
Instead his heart must have
sunk, the steel-trap mental
focus lost.a clasp and the
Woods roar stayed silent.
A~nd to think, if Immelman
was to hit the water on the
16th for a double bogie, and
'Tiger had made three of

and the school was mutual.
"Coach (Joll) Robinson sat
across from her, looked her in
the eye and said, 'you're the
guard we want,'" father and
head coach this past season,
Mike, said. "She didn't say
that she was one of the ones
they were recruiting, or one of
a few they were looking at.
That meant a lot."
As well it should, for Lee,
her family, her school and the
program she was such a
strong part of.

Lamb added another two-
run dinger in the fourth to
bring the final runs across
before the game mercifully
ended with the mercy rule
after four and one-half
innings.
Tate totaled six RBI to
pace the Lady Devils, Lamb

Ashton Shirey three each and
Missy Lander and Ashley

though Cobb wasn't so wor-

"If we played again tomor-
row, I would be worried," he
said. But we've got a couple
of days to forget about this
one, to get our normal swings
back and be ready
"We're also likely to play
Sebring again," he continued.
"And there's no worry in us
being ready to play'them."
Avon Park will meet
