the group the marketing campaign will
be directed toward.
The "somebody" seemingly poised
to take on the marketing challenge

SEBRING County Administrator
Carl Cool's "brain trust" narrowed the
target market of a developing advertis-
ing campaign to attract Save Our
Homes portability from the coast.
Cool said the property appraiser's
office reported 337 portability applica-
tions from Highlands residents and 54
from outside the county.
Similar data can be gathered from
Other counties, allowing somebody to
conduct a direct mail campaign to peo-

various representatives of real estate
agents, builders, developers, county
departments and a chamber of com-
merce director.
Mike Kirouac, of First Impression
Printing Solutions, offered information
on direct-mail marketing.
The target audience, they decided,
would be those people in "pre-retir~e-

ment" or looking for a vacation home.
By definition, a vacation home
doesn't qualify for homestead exemp-
tions or portability, but the brain trust
didn't want to limit potential buyers..
For about $80 per 1,000 names,
somebody could buy lists of residents
in specific areas who earn at least
$75,000, have an estimated net wealth

ple who might be interested .in
Highlands County, where land values
are typically half that of B~roward,
Miami-Dade and Collier counties. -
His goal is to double or triple the
outside portability applications.
"I just think that that's.a very valu-
able piece of information," Cool said.
Members of the brain trust included

Bombs" is the theme of an Avon
Park Air Force Range T-shirt.
The shirt, on-sale Thursday dur-
ing an invitation-only showcase
event at the ceremony hanger, fea-
tured three birds and a bomb.
"These birds rely on fire to clean
ou~t their habit," explained Todd
Zechiel, liaison between the Air
Force's enviironmental-end: military
training flights based at the range.
Calling it a "unique relationship,"
Zechiel said the threatened cookated
woodpecker, the Florida scrub jay
and 'the endangered Florida
grasshopper sparrow fare well
despite the base's operations.
He said the live-fire operations
often result in the type of under-
brush-clearing range fires on which
the three birds thrive-
Zechiel manned one of about a
dozen table displays that showcased
the various activities that support
the Air Force's training mission at
Avon Park.
Several static displays included
Florida Army National Guard sol-
diers operating their Multiple
Launch Rocket System launcher,
old and new targets (fuselages of
former fighter planes, one of which
was riddled, with bullet holes) and
even massive civilian tractors used
to maintain the targets.
Demonstrations included flyovers
by both vintage and modern aircraft,
P-51s and F-16s, respectively.

.SEBRINjG The City of Sebring
has entered mnto preliminary discus-
sions with a partnership that is looking
to transform T-b~rder Hall into an indg-.
pendent and assisted living faclity.
Representatives from ~Calibre
investment Group out of St. Petersburg
and Senior Management Properties out
of Miami met with city officials on
Wednesday to- discuss a possible offer
on the historic hotel. City Administrator
Bob Hoffnian~ said' the partnership ver-
bally discussed making~ a $5.3 million
offer for the property, a number which
would match the city's asking price.
However, the group wanted a 120-
day inspection period followed by 240
days between then and closing, and it
offered to put up $110,000 of hard
money after the inspection period.
Those terms met with some resistance
from the city.
"We told them that' was probably not
enough, and we asked them to revisit
the amount of money put down,"
Hoffman, said. "We didn't reach any
agreement, we talked about scenarios."
The 240-day closing period was a
particular point of concern for the city,
Hoffman said, especially considering
the small down payment amount the-

AVON PARK Brittany Hall
lives in Georgia, works in Colorado
and has been in Highlands County
for almost a month.
It would be a strange situation for
most, but Hall is one of 10 people in
'the county who are serving their
country as a member of the
AmeriCorps National Civilian
Community Corps.
Hall came to AmeriCorps by way
of Georgia Southern University, and

she decided to volunteer after partic-
ipating in an alternative spring break
program with some corps members,
In February she was sent to Denver
for a month of training with her
group, whose first assignment
brought them to Highlands County.
The team is staying at the Habitat
for .Hulnanity building downtown,
and a typical day begins at 6:30 a.m.,
with work occurring from 7:30 a.m.
until around 2 p.m. At night the
group undergoes physical training,
which can take the form of running,

other exercise or games.
While keeping in shape comes in
handy when ,building houses, it
comes in handier for what the group
will be doing .when it returns to
Colorado wildland firefightmng.
The group heads back -to Denver
Sunday for a transition week, which
will be followed by firefighting
training with the National Forest
Service. After that the team will be
stationed at 'the Arapaho and

SEBRING It seems
Highlands County shoppers
are in for- a disappointment.
Despite swirling rumors,
which simply will not quiet
down, T'arget says it has no
immediate intention of open-
ing a store here.
Company officials denied
the rumors two months ago in
telephone conversations with
the News-Sun, and again in an
e-mail sent Wednesday morn-

T"he message, from Target's
Guest Relations Department,
said: "As you might imagine,

There's involvement by peo-
ple in the private and govern-
ment areas and it may take
months or even years to build.
a store.
"Sometimes Target is men-
tioned as .an example of a
possible store anchor for a
project by a developer or a
city. I don't have any infor-
mation about a store in the
area you mentioned."
Patty Palmer, who was
quoted as having inside infor-
mation on the subject in a
recent report in another news-
paper, has since received 11
phone calls from people seek-
ing details.
She said she knows
absolutely nothing about

SEBRING With all of
the trucks that pass on U.S.
.27, noise has often been an
issue. One particular noise,
the loud popping sound that
emanates from "Jake
brakes," was brought to the
attention of the Sebring City
Council on Tuesday.
The "Jake brakes" act as a
decompression for the
engine which saves mainte-
nance of the brakes. They
make a loud popping noise
when applied, creating a dis-
turbance that can often be
heard from a great distance.
Fairmount Mobile Estates
resident Della Dixon
brought up the "Jake brake"
issue, saying the loud brakes
created a disturbance in her
neighborhood. She asked if
there were noise ordinances
that might curb the usage of
the brakes and also inquired
as to the feasibility of plac-
ing signs on U.S. 27.
City Attorney Bob Swaine
said he wasn't sure if the
city's noise ordinance
applied to normal vehicle
operations'. City Clerk Kathy
Haley said even if it did
apply, the police E~epartment
would be unable to respond
to the complaints.
"There's nothing they
could do," Haley said. "By
the time they find out where
the noise came from, (the
truck driver) is gone."
Rob Horne, who just min-

utes before was appointed to
the city's planning and zon-
ing board, echoed Haley's
sentiment. He said his for-
mer home state of
Pennsylvania had local ordi-
nances that specifically
addressed the brakes, but
said the only way they could
be enforced was if a police
officer happened to be in, the
immediate area.
Dixon had been through
towns that had signage up
prohibiting the application
of the brakes, but City
Administrator Bob Hoffman
hadn't heard of any city in
Florida that had put up a
similar sign.
Council member John
Griffin wasn't sure if the
Department of Transport-
ation, which operates U.S.
27, would be willing to work
with the city on a sign, even
if one was apljroved by the
."We tried to lower the
speed limit and get trucks in
the right lane, but they,
wouldn't work with us,"
Griffin said.
Hoffman said city staff
would research the issue to
see how it was addressed in
other areas. Dixon said she'd
be happy for any help the
city could provide.
"Anything would be much.
appreciatedd" Dixon said.
"We enjoy our stay here in
Sebring; we'd just like. to
have it a little quieter some-
times ."

Kenny Rogers will headline
the series with his perform-
ance on Feb. 11. With 20 plat-
inum albums, 22 No. I hits,

worldwide this will be an
unforgettable evening.

these quick tips from Publix:

Keep small quantities of herbs and spices
near your cooking area. Store the rest in an
airtight container in your freezer.
If stored near heat, light, or where moisture
collects, flavor will be lost. Try to store your
spices in a cool, dark, dry place.
Ground spices and herbs fade in flavor

Staymng the course

On April 10, retired school superintendent Ruth
Handley did two things she celebrated her 80th
birthday and was host to the Children's Services
The sit-down dinner in her home was an opportuni-
ty for the council members to get to know each other
as individuals, as well as a teach-in for the new mem-
None of this was particularly news worthy -
Handley being not yet 100, and the organization
going about its routine, quiet business.
But we decided, in these difficult times, when so
many of us are working at cross purposes, or feeling
terminally depressed, or frothing with rage, that a
reminder of something wonderful that works would
be a bracing tonic.
Especially because the Children's Service's
Council is a blend of public and private, a collection
of community leaders and not so ordinary, ordinary
people all determined to make a difference one
small step at a time.
The idea for a council that would focus on the prob-
lems facing children and young people began to
emerge from the ether in 1989.
In 1990, 120 people met in a large task force for six
months. They developed recommendations, the main
one of which was to create a Children's Services
Council .
By the fall of 1991 a leader for the venture was
found as Kevin Roberts came on board as director of
the county's department of human services, and the
council both. .
In the years since, among the programs the council
has created, and funds or supports, are a hotline for
teens and children; a safe house for women; the
Healthy Kids program; Eye Check, which screens the
vision of all kindergarten students; the Avon Park
Youth Academy, now the fourth largest such facility
in the state; and the nationally recognized Children's
Advocacy Center, a site where help is on hand for
children suspected of suffering abuse.
Those accomplishments are only a part of the list
andi don't count dozens of other programs and special
The fact that the youth academy was once an aban-
doned air force base, and the advocacy center a
falling down convenience store, underscores the cre-
ativity the council uses to get things done.
What we find the most remarkable, anp most com- <
forting, is the passion Children's Services Council
members bring with them. It is good to be reminded
that not everyone has given in to despair.
"We (human beings) are innately made for commu-
nity," Jeff Roth, the director at the advocacy center,
said that night. "We are better together than apart
because we are connected, social beings.
"There is a need for passionate, enthusiastic leader-
ship," he told his fellow council members.
"You see the look of desperation (as people enter
the center). You want them, at the least, to leave with
hope. The heroes are the ones who inspire that hope."
The Children's Services Council inspires hope too,
and backs it up with commitment and action.
In' perilous times and rough seas, it is important
indeed to see a group of individuals set a steady
course and maintain their balance, all by working
together. They are heroes indeed.

lifestyle on the rest of us.
`When we stand by idly and
do nothing to deter the evil
before us, we will pay a
price. TThe Bible tells us not
to grow weary of well doing,
to watch as well as pray. I
know God expects us to use
every weapon He has so gra-

oii ent wokeus il- uis k g-
dom. Let us continue to pray
for godly leaders. I know we
don't have much to choose
from, but God can make a
way~where there seems to be
no way.

Some issueS
facing OUr nation
I hope we don't grow
weary from all the political
exposure. I wonder if we're
learning anything from all we
are hearing. As I understand
it, both Hillary and Barack
have voted for abortion con-
sistently. Have you ever won-
dered how they raise all this
money? It's obvious the can-
didatbs avoid the issues that
most of us are passionately
concerned about.
SThis influx of imports
from China and other places
that are not quality merchan-
dise rnany times~ not even
safe, with the tax of imports
and exports being so unfairly
administered is detrimental
healthwise and economically.
With everything we import,
we're depriving our own peo-
ple of jobs. As citizens, we
need to compare quality
before assuming we're get-
ting a bargain,
Case in point: I recently
bought a toilet seat that
immediately came apart; I
returned it only to get anoth-
er with repeat performance.
I've had toilet seats that last-
ed for years. These barely
lasted months. Buying food
from other countries and
building on our farm land is
certainly no solution. When
we have built on all of our

land, there will no longer be
construction jobs and we will
have put ourselves in a posi-
tion to be dependent on othi-
ers for food not a good
idea. .
We were told when
NAFTA began that prices
would come down, not only

bu ju gng ro sm ofthe
results we've seen, these
imports are not inspected for
harmful bacteria like ours. It
seems to me, we are continu-
ally headed in the wrong
direction and our leaders and
candidates are closing their
eyes to what really needs to
be done to resolve our prob-
lems .
It is my understanding that
the homosexual lobbyists are
working hard to make their
perverse ideology into law;
also, that many schools are
being required to teach this
lifestyle as normal without
the consent of parents. You
have, no~ doubt, heard the
saying, "To get rid of the
lice, you must kill the nits," a
good analogy.
W-hen we allow these
things to be taught to our
children, we are subject to be
facing a generation that does-
n't know ~right from wrong. I
don't think any of us want to
accept the responsibility of
allowing that to happen.
These people are working for
special rights where they
would be given job prefer-
ences, businesses would be
forced to hire them, they
would be accepted as leaders
for our young people and the
list goes on. I'm not suggest-,
ing that we dominate these .
people, but neither am I in
favor of them forcing their

In addition, we formulate plans to
interact with other state and local
agencies and boards as a source of
possible funding. We participate in
promoting conservation ideals to
political forces within Highlands -
County to protect the water and nat-
ural resources. We devise and imple-
ment programs and projects to niini-
mize loss of our waters to other
regions of the state, and to protect
and enhance local water quantities.
We promote wise use of water
through efficient distribution (i.e.
crop irrigation, etc.).
The HSWCD promotes the wise
use of natural resources through

Continue support of
COunty impact fees
County commissioners: I
hope that you will reconsider
your position, and you will
support maintaining county
impact fees at the current 30
percent, with an increase to
50 percent for next fiscal
year. Perhaps if you step
back from the firestorm, you
will see that dividing the
community, rescinding prom-
ises made to the municipali-
ties, and jeopardizing state
and federal grants for the
sake of short-term political
gain is wrong.
Again commissioners, I
hope that you will support
county impact fees, and you
will end this strife and divi-
sion among the residents of
Highlands County.
Furthermore, county impact
fees yea or nay should
be based on economic need,
not based on popularity and
personality contests from an
ad-hoc impact review com-
mittee .

courageous battle with melanoma on
Tuesday. He was 67.
Grill was founder and past president of

that if kids were involved in sports, they

He encouraged everyone to live their

league in Birmingham. Adams said he
couldn't wait until he turned 55 so he
could play senior softball.
After learning of Grill's failing health,
the players of South Florida Community
College Panthers baseball team signed a
jersey after a game last week. It was
delivered to Janice and the family after
his passing.
A flood of e-mails from around the
country have been delivered, too, all
filled with memories of Grill.
Bobbie Boyer of The Villages
described Grill's passion for softball.
"He could keep up with players 20 years
younger and was so dedicated that he
would drive miles to a part of his team,"
she said in her e-mail.
Physical activity was second nature to
Grill. If not on the ball field, he could be

found on the dance
floor. He was a
member of Beach
Boppers of Orlando,
Tampa Bay Beach
Boppers, Magic
City Boppers and
Avon Park Beach
Phil Graf, founder
of Magic City
Boppers, became
friends with Grill

about 45 years ago, while the two were
still teens. "'When I started the Magic
City Boppers in Birmingham, Ala. in
1989 and the SOB Hangout Weekend in
Panjlma City Beach, Johnny was there
with bells on, being supportive of the
new club and the beach party that
brought people together from all over the
south and from as far away as Ohio. His
quick, warm smile and witty ways
brought people together.
"The angels are playing in the heaven-

pants like yours before," he said in his e-
Boyer described Grill as "the man
behind the scene and sometimes in the
scene" at the annual Avon Park Beach
Boppers three-day parties each March at
Kenilworth Lodge. Last month's party
was canceled due to Grill's failing
health. .. .

even considered firefighting
until joining AmeriCorps, and
said even though she is
approaching the two-year
service limit with the NCCC,
she wants to pursue firefight-

"I never thought I would
end up here," she said. "It's
been a great experience,
incredibly enlightening.

Estrada said the group's
experience in~ the county had
been a good one, and she had
kind words for the people the
group has encountered.
"It's a really nice area here,
and people have been wel-

our stay amazing."
Since arriving March 20,

the final, plans are, extensive

there is it conflict as the Avon

Help Yourself Help Loved Ones
Recognizing that far too many Americans are not prepared to do CPR when it's needed, the American Heart
Association created a simple, accessible way for people to learn CPR at home in less than 25 minutes:
a The Family &r Friends CPR Anytime kit includes' everything needed for self-directed CPR training: a
manikin,.DVD and resource booklet.
a The CPR home training can be used in the convenience of the living room or family room.
i A single kit allows the whole family parents, grandparents, siblings and other relatives or friends to
learn life-saving CPR.
"There are many excuses for not taking a life-saving CPR course. People don't have enough time, they're
afraid of embarrassing themselves in the classroom, or they don't think they'll ever have to provide CPR," said
E. O'Connor, MD, chairman, Emergency Cardiovascular Care committee for the American Heart Association.
"Family & Friends CPR Anytime removes traditional training obstacles by providing a brief and convenient way

learn CPR. With CPR Anytime, millions mqre people trained can result mn thousands more lives saved."
Being prepared to act quickly when a family member adult, child or infant suffers from sudden cardiac
arrest can make the difference between life and death.

CPR: All in the Family
Making CPR training a whole family affair just makes good sense. With so many grandparents actively involved
in the care of their infant grandchildren, it's important for them to be current on~ infant CPR training. Maintaining
adult CPR skills are just as critical to help each other or other family members or friends who experience sud-
den cardiac arrest.
"Infant CPR Anytime is` an important and convenient way for all caretakers like grandparents to gain the

strong, to endue
with strength.' The
idea is, 'to clothe
one's self with
strength as one puts
i; on a garment.' Here
the verb is in the
passive voice, 'be
continually strength-
0'~S ened.' The qualify-
tual ing phrase, 'in the
.Lord,' defines the
min strengthening as
Carrell Christian strength-
eming, such as can
take effect only in union with
the Lord.
"The rendering, 'be
strong,' could encourage one
to self-effort at being strong,
whereas the translation 'be
strengthened,' causes the
saint to depend on the Lord
for the supply of that
strength." (Kenneth S.
Wuest, Wuest's Word Studies
from the Greek New
Testament: For the English
Reader, Eph 6:9-10. Grand
Rapids: Eerdmans, 1997, c.
Notice that Wuest points
out this important. considera-
tion: If Paul had merely
instructed us to "be strong,"
we might be deceived into
thinking that the strength he
has in mind comes through
self-effort. But in actuality,
Paul was saying "be strength-
ened" and therefore, we will
be caused "to depend on the
Lord for the supply of that
strength ."
The Contemporary English
Version has the right idea in
giving the passage as,
"Finally, let the mighty
strength of the Lord make
you strong."
Dependence upon the Lord
is the key to living the life of
spiritual power. This is a
matter~of allowing God to
strengthen us in the right
way a life-changing way
that manifests our faith in
our uttermost reliance upon
Christ. The same word for
"be strong" is found in
Philippians 4:13, where Paul
writes, "I can do everything
through him who gives me
strength ."
Clearly, the strength for
Christian living is a gift. God
gives it to all who seek His
power rather than their own
in living their lives for Him.
"Not that we are competent
in ourselves to claim any-
thing for ourselves, but our
competence comes from
God." (2 Cor. :5, NIV).

The controls of our

is not directing our affairs.
The Bible promises us that
God will be our streiagth in
living the Christian life.
There is no spiritual strength,
might or power that exists
apart from Him.
The words of Je'sus ring as
true today as they did when
they were first spoken: "I am
the vine; you are the branch-,
es. If a inan remains in me
and I in him, he will bear
much fruit; apart from me
you can do nothing." (John
15:5, NIV).
When you arise in the
morning to begin your day,
do you remind yourself that
you can do nothing without
Christ? Is this not the way
that believers should strive to
think at all times? Paul, in
writing to the Ephesians,
suggests this in the sixth
chapter of his letter: "Finally,
my brethren, be strong in the
Lord and in the power of His
might." (Ephesians 6:10, -
Upon reading the apostle's
words of encouragement to
the believers at Ephesus, one
is reminded of what God
promised Joshua in the long
ago when the torch of
Hebrew leadership was being
passed from Moses to him-
self: "Have I not commanded
you? Be strong an~d cottrd-
geous. Do not be terrified; do
not be discouraged, for the
Lord your God will~be with
you wherever you go." (Josh
1:9, NIV).
Joshua needed to know -
as all of God's followers
throughout the ages of time
have needed to know that
God would be with him. The
Lord's people have the firom-
ise of His abiding presence.
When Paul writes that believ-
ers are tb "be strong in the
Lord," he is relilinding us of
the importance of gaining our
strength from the Lord and
niot from ourselves.
'This truth is seen both
grammatically and contextu-
ally. A~s Kenneth S. Wuest
has pointed out, "'Be strong'

Pastor Reinhold

When we r~ead the
Passover Hagaddah, it is
clear that the Israelites who
were redeemed from slavery
in Egypt could not have fol-
lowed Moses to freedom
without faith in God'
As difficult as slavery was,
it must have taken a huge '
leap of faith to gather their
families and their belongings
and leave Egypt for the
unknown wilderness of Sinai.
At the Sea of Reeds, it was
faith in God that gave the
Israelites the courage to go
forwardd as the waters of the
sea parted for them, unafrraid
that they would drown as
they crossed. It may be said
that the Passover story is .
about the Israelites' faith in
God. .
What is faith? According
to the American Heritage
Dictionary, faith is "Belief
that does not rest on logical,
proof ~or material evidence.
The word for faith in Hebrew
iss "emunah," which actually
means trust. Emunah is the
Commitment to a God, who
cannot be formally demon_
strated or directly experi-
enced. Faith is not conven-
tional knowledge based on
proof. Faith is an inner
knowledge, knowledge of the
soul. Faith in God is percep
tible to the heart and not sub~-

SThat is the essence of reli-

the primary children of The
Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints to be donat-

worker, who can give them to
children who are stressed
from emergency situations.
The second date for drop
off is Saturday, April 26, in .
the parking lot of the church
from 12 noon to 2 p.m. and
again from 6:30-7:30 p.m.
The church address is 3235
Grand Prix in Sebring on the

wonderful response from the
community thus far is very
inuch appreciated.
The Presentation Day will
be on Saturday, May 17,
beginning at 10 a.m. Parents
in the community are invited
to bring their children for a
fun morning of fire trucks,
firemen demonstrations, EMS

ASpecial tothe New~s-Swr1rst
United Methodist Church of
Avon Park was delighted to
welcome the Rev. Gary
Pendrak and his wife Martha
Ann Pendrak (nee Moseley),
who was born and raised in
Avon Park.
"Since I've been .here, I
have been introducing myself
as 'Gary Moseley-Pendrak' so
people will know who I am,"
Gary Pendrak said.
Gary Pendrak met his wife
at a bluegrass music festival
held behind the dorm while
they were attending college at
Emory University in Atlanta.
Pendrak already had served
three years as an infantry offi-
cer in the 82nd Airborne, but
had resigned his commission
to attend Seminary.
It wasn't long before they
graduated and married. He
then began working as an
assistant pastor in Salem, Va.
"In order to become a chap-
lin in the Army, the Methodist
church requires that you to
have three years of experience
as a pastor," Pendrak said-
After completing his three-
year requirement, Pendrak re-
entered the Army as a chaplin.
It was then he and Martha
Ann began a life for the Lord
that would take them around
the world and back to The
City of Charm.
Pendrak again was assigned
to the 82nd Airborne in Fort
Bragg, N.C., but other duties
took them to Fort Monmouth,
N.J.; two tours in Germany,
Tobyhanna, Pa.; Fort Still,
Okla.; Fort Lee, Va. and
deployment to Egypt,
Bahrain. the Persian Gulf and
Honduras .
During his 28 years of serv-
ice the Pentraks have wit-
nessed changes in both mili-
tary and civilian ministry.
"The expectations for a
:minister's wife have relaxed,"
SMartha Ann Pendrak said.
There was a time when the
minister's wjfe was expected
to play the piano or to per-
Iform certain duties for the
However, she said the
:changes have brought addi-
tional opportunities.
"There are many more

opportunities where you
know you are really able to
help people," Martha Ann .
Pendrak said. *
As a chaplin's wife, she
volunteered to help with .
many of the wife's groups and
played a leadership role in
support teams.
Pendrak also has seen the
shifts in attitudes and respon-
sibilities as golden opportuni-
ties. As a lieutenant colonel
and supervisor of chaplins, he
has been able to affect some
changes of his own.
"The chapel breaks down
all barriers between religions,
and rank," Pendrak revealed.
One innovation Pendrack
was able to inniatiate was that
during his time at a basic
training camp the pastor
brought the microphone from n
the pulpit and put in the-mid-
dle 'of the aisle.
He then asked the troops
for their prayer requests.
"The guys who were serv-
ing their first week of training
always asked for strength to
make it through and the guys
who were on their last week
of training always prayed for
the guys who were in thbir
first week," Pendrak said with
a smile.
When he was told he

should be preaching to the
troops, the pastor responded
to the drill sergeant with his
own verison of faith.
"All I can do is get up there
and talk about faith but when
they ask for prayer they are
living faith," he said.
In his role as supervisor of
chaplins, Pendrak served over
a priest, a rabbi and five dif-
ferent protestant chaplins.
Additionally, he helped to
train medics to be able to say
certain prayers for each group
of belief.
"When you are severely
injured or dying, you want t
hear a prayer that is familiar,"
Pendrak said.
Finding out the proper
prayer was easy, medics sim-
ply could check the trooper's
dog tags to know which
prayer to say. '
When the Pentraks retired
in 2004 they moved back to
Avon Park to be with Martha
Ann's aging father, S.Y.
Gary Pendrak now con-
ducts the services at First
United Methodist Church on
Saturday evenings and
Sunday mornings.
Incidentally, Martha Ann
Pentrak does play the piano at
the Saturday evening service.
