There were cheers all around as cancer survivors opened the Sebring Relay for Life Saturday afternoon at
Firemen's Field with their traditional first lap. The 18-hour event is held each year in Avon Park, Imke Placid
and Sebring to raise money for cancer research. The goal for the Sebring relay is to raise $130,000, and
more than $100,000 had already been raised heading into the event. There were 40 teams on hand, but as
emcee Don Elwell said in the opening ceremony, 'We're all on the same team today.' The Relay is scheduled to
end today at 7 a.m.

KENNED Y SPACE CENTER

Avon Park High School
in 2005, Annesly Wood
has been studying math edu-
cation at the University of
Central Florida.
Starting her junior year in
September 2007, she began
preliminary student teaching
at a private school, preparing
for her senior year and for-
mal~practice teaching.
Like so many people with
a plan, however, she was in
for a surprise, a very pleas-
ant one as it turned out.
Because NASA called the
school one day looking for
candidates for a new intern-
ship position.
Wood was the first person


the school thought of.
Wood, however, wasn't
immediately sure she was
interested.
The internship was for a
program at the Kennedy
Space Center's Education
Center the Digital
Learning Network where
science classes are brought
to schools over the Internet.
While it looked exciting,
Wood worried it would post-
pone her graduation like
so many young people, she
was eager to get out into the
world. .
But her mother, Deborah
Wood, is an educator herself
(an assistant principal at
Sebring High School), and
she saw the value of the
opportunity, convincing her
daughter to think twice.

A recently concluded E-911 audit

SEBRING A Tampa
woman was jailed Thursday for
sending a cocaine-filled letter
to an inmate iUn the Highlands
County Jail.
She joined him behind bars
on charges of cocaine distribu-
tion and attempting to smuggle
an illegal substance into jail.
Gentra Taylor, 39, has
already spent her share of time
in the Highlands County Jail.
According to the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office Web
site, Taylor was arrested in
1993, spending three months
behind bars that year, and two
months in 1994.
It also showed arrests in
1999 and 2006
In one of two letters she sent
to inmate Detrick McGriff were
three small plastic Ziploc-style
bags containing .2 grams of a
white powder.
It field tested positive for
cocaine, an arrest report by


Taylor Mc~riff


Officer John Singha said.
Tiivo letters arrived on April
17, both to McGriff from
Taylor, postmarked April 16.
"The letter which was
received and did not contain
any drugs was similar to anoth-
er letter," Singha said.
"The nature of the correspon-
dence was similar, the hand-
writing was similar, and the
return address was tge same.
Mccriff has been in jail
since Sept. 1, 2007, on violation
of probation charges for posses-
sion of cocaine.
Taylor remained in jail
Friday afternoon on $12,500
bond.

SEBRING The loyal K-9s
of the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office got a paw up on
the bad guys Wednesday after~
noon.
Thanks to Dixie Burns,
Jeanne Warner and. Pete
McDivett, the hard-working
hounds will stay cooler and the
patrol dogs will be better pro-
tected.
The group helped rally the
community to raise money for
Cooling and ballistic vests for
the eight-dog squad.
It all started with a simple
run-mn with the law in a Lake
Placid deli.
"I remembered the officer in
Polk county and his dog that
died, and I ran into Lt. (Jess)
Purvis," Burns recalled. "I
asked him if our dogs in
Highlands County had vests,
and he said there wasn't money
in the budget for it."
That was a year ago, and in


that time the word was put out
and contributions were collect-
ed.
Now each dog has a vest.
"We have the cooling vests
for the bloodhounds," said
Capt. Paul Blackman, supervi-
sor of Road Patrol, where the
SK-9s are assigned. "It will help
their endurance running a track,
and keep them cool in the sum-
mer months to come."
The department had cooling
vests a long time ago, he said,
but over time they wore out.
They didn't have patrol dogs
back then, so they didn't need
ballistic vests but now they
have four dogs and four vests.
"If you send a patrol dog into
a wooded area where a suspect
may be hiding or inside a
house, we don't know if the
suspect is armed or has an
edged weapon," he said. "It will
protect them."
The ballistics vests are cus-
tomized to fit each specific dog.


"They are equivalent to th:
ones two-legged officers wear,"
Burns said. "They went through
a lot of vests before they chose
this ballistic."
SBurns feels strongly about
her four-legged protectors.
"To interfere with a police
dog is a third-degree felony,"
she said. "I think it should be
bumped up to a second
degree ."
Now that the vests have been
donated, she won't stop there.
Nett on the agenda is an
entire agility course.
"Right now they have to go
to Bartow to train," she said.
"This is exciting, a wonderful
project."
Donations for the K-9s are
still being accepted. Burns said
donors can make a check out to
the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, writing K-9 vests in the
check memo, and send it to 434
Fernleaf Ave., Sebring, Fla.,
33870.

SEBRING -Next weekend,
Highlands County's highest achievers

The May 3 banquet will recognize all
students with a 3.4 and above GPA,
awarding them with a key and medallion
for their accomplishments.
About 225 students made the grade,
and of those in attendance 40 scholar-


ships will be given out for $200 each in a
random drawing.

ate of Highlands County schools is invit-
ed to return and address the college
bound audience.

Alrms to feed

the homeless

onTh rSOHa gg

By' MATT"I MURPHY

SEBRING- The
Salvation Army has started a
program to feed the homeless
on the first Thursday of each
month, with the next feeding
happening this Thursday.
A hot meal will be served
at the parking lot of the
Salvation Army's Thrift Store
at 3135 Kenilworth Blvd. in
Sebring from 5-6:30 p.m.
"Some of the homeless out
there aren't getting meals,
and we're really meeting a
need,"' Captain Mary Holmes
said.
The Salvation Army started
the .program last month and
15 people came by, she said,
adding that the feeding is the
first time the local chapter of
the organization has done a
tro ram like this
The meals will be cooked
out of the group's mobile
kitchen, which isn't currently
being used.
Right now, the meals are
served are monthly, but the
organization is looking to see
if the program will become
popular enough to warrant
adding more days.
"We're just going to play it
by ear," she said. "If it seems
to be a need, we might
increase to more days in the
month .
"We're just looking to see
what the need really is."
The Salvation Army bould
use donated canned goods or,
as Thursday comes closer,
donations of bread. .

about budget experience and

Barbara Stewart was interest-
ed inl how the candidates

rience while familiarizing
themselves on unique issues.
Chairman Edgar Stokes
asked their opinions regarding

he relayed the audience's

With 26 years of active duty
service in the Army and as a
West Point-commissioned
officer, at least two citizens
wanted to know why Col.

Needham entered the cham-
ber with his wife Judy at his
side. She sat in the gallery'
next to Jackson's and Bates'
wives. -
"I've never been stuck on
rank," Needham said. "You
don't need a title to be a
leader."
Needham said he's on track
to be a general, which requires
a three-year Commitment.
He'd rather start his new
career now.
Bates joked that his wife
Dot already promoted him to
general, then asked him about
his views on a ~four-day work

Maxcy said county staff
were curious how the next
administrator would seek
board approval for a program
that he, the administrator,
opposed.
Hall said he'd weigh the
pros and cons and accepted
debate as helpful in decision
ma ing.
"Once the county commis-
sion has made a decision, it's
my job to implement it," Hall
said, explaining his'role is to
ensure his board has the neces-
sary information to make their
policy decisions.
Jackson was curious, maybe
excited, about Hall's budget
philosophy.
Hall said he implements a
hybrid of two styles per-
formance- and zero-based.
"You really need to look at
the budget year to year," he
said, explaining each budget
should start with a blank slate
to address needs of the coming
year.
The applicants went home
after the interviews. The com-
missioners convene at 9 a.m.
Monday to make what they
hope to be their final selection.


WOOD
Continued from 1A
As a result. Wood has been
working at KSC since
January, and just found out
she has been extended
through the summer.
It has been an exciting,
eye-opening time for her,
filled with all kinds of special
opportunities
For example, she took part
in making an educational fibn
and got to go prices no one
but the astronauts or highly
specialized workers go like
190 feet up into the launch
tower to the astronauts,
entrance.
Her main function, howev-
er, is to help Damon Talley
the coordinator of the Digital
Learning Network at KSC,
present the aerospace lessons.
Presentations can be indi-
vidualized to fit any situation.
For instance, on a recent
Friday, Wood and Talley
faced a class of first-graders
in El Paso, Texas.
Special optical, integrating
equipment is used so the stu-
dents and educators can see
each other on camera in real
time .
Talley asked the class if
anyone knew who the first
man was to land on the Moon,
Almost simultaneously two
answers rang out:
"Armstrong," one boy shout-
ed out; "Moon walk! Michael
Jackson" cried another.
To show the children how
friction makes the shuttle hot
on its return home, slie had
them rub their hands together
really fast. She described the
ceramic tiles protecting the
shuttle like a pair of gloves
protects the hands.
She showed the 6-year-olds
a plastic straw and how easy
it was to bend.
She asked if anyone could
guess what would happen if
she put the straw in a canister
of liquid nitrogen.
Nobody had a guess, so she
dipped the straw into the can-
ister showing how it became
brittle, snapping in her hands.
SWood pulled out a lon ,
narrow, white balloon the


kind a clown ties into an ani-
mal and asked the class if
anyone had an idea what
wiouldl happen when she
clipped it in the nitrogen.
Everyone guessed the bal-
loon wVould Sn7ap and explode.
Instead,. the balloon shriv-
eled because liquid nitro-
gen is so cold the molecules
stp moving altogether -
bratwurst. There was liquid in
one end, which turned out to
be the oxygen from inside, so
cold it turned liquid.
More amazing still, as
Wood held the balloon in the
warmer air, it immediately
began to return to its original
size and shape.
Talley said he makes about
300 presentations a year, and
all the centers together about
3,000.
The opportunity is avail-
able to any teacher, although
it does require special optical
and transmitting equipment
that currently costs $7,000.
One such unit could be *
used by an entire school dis-
trict, Wood said, hoping
Highlands County will invest
in one.
In the meantime, she
added, at least temporarily,
NASA has loaned such a unit
to the school district. It is
available through her mother
at Sebring High School.
Wood has been so ener
gized by her unusual opportu-
nity that she has set out on a
mission.
"There's not much teaching
of science, technology, engi-
neering, or mathematics in
Highlands County," she said.
"I really want to push them
and expose children to
NASA, especially girls and
minorities."
She is preparing a special
robotics presentation for
Sebring High School students
on May 2, and reminds teach-
ers a catalogue of events is
available online as well as all
kinds of activities,

Employees of the 'News-Sun' brought their children to work Thursday and gave the young ones a sample of what
their jobs involve. Bethany Wiliams (from left) and Cameron Williams are the children of Publisher Clarissa
Williams, I~jersten Farmer is the daughter of Business Office Manager Anne Marie Jackson, and Daniel Washington
is the son of Executive Editor Romona Washington. Assistant Editor Scott Dressel's sons, Walker and Evan, also
participated for a small portion of the day.

'News-Sun' kids learn the fun of newspaper work


News-Sun staff reports
SEBRING For more than 15 years, parents across the
nation have been participating in Take Our Daughters and
Sons to Work Day. Initially started for daughters to open
their eyes to a world of emplo! ment oppohriunities, the da\,
eivolved to? inLlclue ione
Atr th'e News-Sim bn Thursday, children of the staff were
invited in to see the workings of a newspaper,
Daniel Washington, son of Executive Editor Romona
Washington, was brought in to sell an advertising sponsor
for one of these two pages. He called Melanie Boulay,
president of Highlands Little Theater, and made a success-
ful pitch. Kiersten Farmer, daughter of Business Office
Manager Anne Marie Jackson, then designed the ad and
turned it over to Bethany Williams, daughter of Publisher
Clarissa Williams, so she could attempt to create it.
They all decided that drawing the ad wottld be easier,
and those drawings can be found on these pages, along


with drawings of an advertisement for Highlands County
Recycling.
While at the News-Sun, the children watched the news-
room work. Walker Dressel, son of Assistant Editor Scott
Dressel. wanted to try his~ hand at being edjitor: Hisj broth-
er. E\ an; picked up the phone and imitated the reporter-.
The kids also had an opportunity to watch the press run,
something that not all children ... or for that matter, adults
* ... have been able to do. The News-Sun is ~the only news-
paper in Highlands County with a press on site.
~They saw how the different sections of the newspaper
are all inserted into one section and prepared for the carri-
ers, deciding the machine made the job look a lot simpler
than hand inserting the sections.
Before leaving for the day, the children wrote some
comments, which can be found across the top of this page.
They enjoyed their day, anxiously anticipating the jobs
they will be handed next year.

said "They' are like a pack of
wolves." Threatening state-
mnents are made at meetings
by these people. For example:
"We could burn them out" by
a director's wife. "If you
don't like it, move out or hire
a lawyer" by a director of The
Knolls. "Go back where you
came from" etc., an ongoing
pattern of harassment.
Many have been forced to
move out and sell their homes
because it was unbearable.
We don't know of a fair secret
vote being held by the direc-

can have democracy at Tie

Evidenc%,debacle
Editor:
I'd like to start by qualify-
ing that my comments and
opinions are based on 30
years of law enforcement
experience, the last 22 of
which were with the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement. As part of my
duties over the years I have
served as an evidence custodi-
an and have been involved
with numerous evidence
audits and inventories. I
would also like to make it
clear that my comments are
not meant as an attack on the
sheriff's office staff and those
involved in the audit, rather
that t ey pertain to te
response or faldresbponse to

ah ash riff' o fic ad inis
Itrhaos been my experience
that when you have items of
evidence missing from a
secured~ evidence facility and
that the whereabouts and dis-
position are unresolved, that
all- of the remaining items of
evidence being stored become
tainted and subject to a higher
level of scrutiny by the court
and the defendants' attorneys.
It also tends to open the door


for a reasonable doubt to be
established or inferred. We all
know that within our legal
systeni, the standard to con-
vict a defendant is beyond' a
reasonable doubt and may
have an adverse affect on all
pending criminal cases where
the sheriff is maintaining the
evidence. .
The only way for the sheriff
to re-establish the credibility
of the evidence storage facili-
ty is to complete a full inven-
tory and account for each item
of evidence and its chain of
custody. I have noticed in the
audit report provided to news-
papers that language such as
"it appears these items were
inadvertently placed in a loca-
tion for disposal," and "it is
possible that the firearm was
accidentally included in a
firearms destruction" are
offered as some of the expla-
nations. I have never seen
such ambiguous explanations
in any of the audits or inven-
tories that I have been
involved with. You can either
account for the evidence or
not. The terms possibly and
may have been do not resolve
the question of where the evi-
dence is. Even if these are the
best explanations that could
be offered, why would the
sheriff contradict the audit
report by stating in an April 9,
2008, newspaper article that
"the items appear to have
been inadvertently destroyed
without proper ~documenta-
tion" and that none of the evi-
dence may be missing, it may
be misplaced or on the wrong
shelf in the inventory room."
Are you confused, well I sure
am. If the evidence might be
on a shelf somewhere then the
ansqrer is simple. Do a full
inventory, correct the mis-
takes and change the manner
in which the evidence is being
handled and disposed of. Also
how would one know where
evidence went if there is not
"proper documentation" indi-
cating how the evidence was
destroyed or disposed of. I


find myself wondering what
the basis was for this state-
ment. Are they relying on the
memory of one of the evi-
dence custodians, who are
reportedly "overwhelmed"
with a 270 percent increase in
the volume of evidence that
they handle. I think not.
Further, to state that "No
criminal prosecutions will
have to be abandoned due to
the issues identified in the
audit"; is a lot like picking the
winning lottery numbers. I
have yet to find anyone that
clairvoyant. It is my guess
that many of the cases involv-
ing the missing evidence have
yet to be litigated completely.
Until they are, no one can pre-
dict awhat; true affect this
debacle will have.

Democracy at The

Editor: ,
Members have been
demanded to pay a $1,000
assessment by Sunday, May 4,
with a threat of a lien and
foreclosure, which they can
lose their home. The truth is,
the $1,000 assessment has
never been voted on. When
members bought their home,
we were told we own a club-
house and have full use of it.
It has been used as a club-
house for nearly 25 years,
Therefore, at this late date,
why are the directors demand-
ing we pay $1,000 up front,
with more assessments to

So I was laying down earlier
today nursing a migraine that greet-
ed me with pain when I got up that
morning. While waiting for my
ibuprofen to kick in, I had the radio
on. This is a way I can keep track
of time without the necessity of
opening my eyes.
During the top-of-the-hour news
reports, I heard that Whirlpool was
suspending some workers for smok-
ing on company property. This was
after they'd claimed on their health
insurance forms that they were non-
smokers .
That piqued my interest. Later,
when I could face my laptop moni-
tor without the light from it sending
stabbing pain through my eyes, I
did some research. I quickly found
the story on the Chicago Tribune's
Web site.
According to the article, workers
at the Evansville plant who smoke


pay an additional $500 on their
insurance premiums. Thirty-nine
workers who had indicated they
were non-smokers on their insur-
ance forms were observed by fellow
workers smoking in designated
smoking areas.
Final disciplinary action is pend
ing, but according to company
spokesperson Debby Castrale, the
company frowns on~ falsifying com-
pany documents.
Other Web sites that cited the
story included comments from read-
ers. I scrolled through a number of
them, knowing that people who
make comments on Web sites such
as these are not wishy-washy in
their opinions.
There were people who felt the
smokers should be fired. Others
decried what they saw as the com
pany's interference in their employ-
ees' private lives. A few (who


these were people who weren't ex-
smokers who just fell off the wagon
one day and snuck a puff. Believe
me, as one working to lose weight I
know all about falling off the
wagon. Want a bite of my Dairy
Queen Blizzard?
But let's assume these 39
employees were smokers attempting
to save themselves $500. So they lie
through their teeth on the insurance
applications.
If this is so, where do you think
should have been the last place for
them to smoke? Shouldn't they
have avoided the workplace where
their cover would have been blown?
The fact they didn't doesn't exactly
strike me as smart.
And even if you think smoking
isn't a smart behavior I don't -
there is one important issue here
that can easily get lost in the
screams of smoker's rights and


mean insurance companies.
If these people signed a docu-
ment claiming to be non-smokers
when they were, they lied. They
lied on an insurance form. Last time
I looked, that's illegal. It would be
like if I was asked if I had glauco-
ma and I said no.
Should companies go further?
Should there be a scale and height-
weight chart to make sure we're not
obese? A breathalyzer unit to make
sure we aren't drinking?
I don't know. But if they did and
I had to fill out a form, I wouldn't
lie. Even if it meant my insurance
premiums went up. Cheaper rates
are not worth my integrity. I wish
everyone felt that way.

for which they were allowing
special risk retirement status
- until F~eb. 241, 2003.
Adjustments were made and
the county paid $14,456.21
into the Florida Retirement
System.
The unusually large retire-
Usent contribution on Henley's
behalf caught the auditors'
eyes, Wilson said.
That's when she and internal
auditor Tasha Morgan began
sifting through Henley's per-
sonnel file to verify the large
sum was legitimate-
Wilson's conclusion, and
Clerk of' Cour-ts L.E. "Luke"
Brooker signed off on her
audit report, was that the
retroactive fire fighting special
riske retirement payment is not
legitimate;.
"Internal audlit was unable
to obtain information support-
ing the E-911 coordinator's
regular participation in fire
related duties for the period
November 2000 through
January 2006," the report said
of the questionablee r~eclassifi-
cation."
Even if the audlitors found
evidence that Henley qualified
for the special risk program
because he performed fire-
related duties, the county was
not allowed to use E-911 funds
(collected from surcharges on
home and cell phone bills) for
anything other than emergency
communications functions _
primarily receiving and trans_
ferring emergency calls.
"iIt is questionable as to
whether Ben Henley qualified
or currently qualifies for spe-
cial aisk retirementt" Wilson


concluded in a memo dlated
Sept. 24, 2007.
"Fire response does not
appear to be 'one of the essen-
tial functions' of Ben's posi-
tion ."
Wilson explained that
Henley had been a volunteer
with the DeSoto City and West
Sebring volunteer- fire depart-
ments.
"He was doing that to justi-
fy the high risk," she said..
But, being a volunteer fire-
fighter doesn't qualify state
employees for the retirement
kicker. Fire duties must be per-
formed on county time in a
county-approved position, she
said
"Tim Eures and Bill Nichols
were also placed into high
risk, but they were not paid
retroactively," Wilson pointed
out.

AUDIT
Coti ud from 1A
audit.
Wilson said the audit began
in July 2007 after the transfer
of E-911 operations from the
board of commissioners to
Highlands County Sheriff
Susan Benton.
The goal was to ensure that
policy and procedures were in
place to ensure the smooth
operations of the county-
owned but sheriff-run -
emergency communications
center.
The E-911 audit was first
mentioned in the public arena
in January, when internal audi-
tors went sniffing in the coun
ty's electronic data base.
They were looking for e-
mails or instant messages
explaining how or why Henley
qualified for special risk
retirement while serving as E-
911 coordinator, an office job.
What they found reeked of
inappropriate use of county
computers, and cost three
employees their jobs Treasa
Handley, Jarod Lee and
Christina Edwards were fired
for exchanging instant mes-
sages of an overtly sexual
nature.
Facilities Management
Director and former county
commissioner David Flowers
received a written reprimand,
as did other county and Clerk.
of Courts employees. A clerk
supervisor was demoted.
But; that's not all that stank.
The auditors found an Aug.
.3, 2005, e-mail from former
human resources director
Freddie Carino to Assistant
Administrator Rick Helms.
Carino wrote (sic), "Ricky,
Heads-Up Carl has told me to
'take care' of Vicki P. in the
bud et. Tom has told me to
'take care' of Ben Henley in
the budget. I am trying to work

Up close and personal with the space shuttle 1j ~


r



ir~lr~[rrrm,~,nF~mnlTin,~


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
NASA's Vehicle Assembly Building, one of the largest buildings in the world. The Statue o~f Liberty, on her
pedestal, would fit easily inside. It covers an area of about eight acres and is 525 feet tall. It was designed
for the Apollo program'. The shuttles and their propulsion systems aren't nearly so tall or big, so NASA
made modifications.


News-Sun photos by CHRISTOPHERTUFFLEY
The Space Shuttle Discovery is getting a new
engine installed, in preparation for its launch
May 31. Wing to wing, the shuttle is 78 feet
Wide. It is,122 feet long, and it's 57 feet from
the tip of its tail to the ground. It all weighs less
than 200,000 pounds,.The top~photo is the nose
gear.


.Take my
word for it it
has to be some-
thing pretty
special to get
me up smiling
~L r at 5:30 in the
morning.
But there I
i Tuffwas, up in the
dark even
Stuff before the
Christopher alarm, just
Tuffley pounding with
excited energy,
and such a grin from to ear to ear
it was hard to shave.
That's because I was setting out
jon an adventure an in-depth
four of the Kennedy Space Center.
Now I'm sure many of you
iave already visited there and
~have an idea of what lay ahead of
:me.
But, forgive me, you don't
know the half of it.
This was my first visit for one
thing, and I am (almost) sorry
Ito rub it in I doubt you got the
cind of tour I got.
I megpn I was brought in so up-
Iclose and personal, that at one
~point I was looking up at the
:underbelly of the shuttle
Discovery. I could have touched
its tiles.
Almost did in fact.
I had that impulse to reach out
and feel one.
My right hand shot up without
my even thinking about it, until
and I mean just at the last
nano-second I held myself
bc, saying to one of my gui es,
"I'm not supposed to touch any-
thing am I?
"Oh God no!" she said quickly,
turning pale.
It turns out the grease and oil -
from a human hand can be enough


to compromise a tile.
MaryAnn Chevalier, a'public
affairs specialist soon to become
director of special media projects,
explained the principle is similar
to the tungsten lights used in -
broadcasting. The glass has to be
handled with gloves because the
lights get so hot, grease from a
human finger cari cause one to
explode.
Shuttle tiles may be as compro-
mised. In addition they are each
built aerodynamically and have to


be treated with care. The workers
who actually touch the tile sur-
faces all wear gloves. *
But I'm getting ahead of
myself.
SThe reason I had such a privi-
leged adventure was because of
one of our own. Annesly Wood, a
2005 graduate of Avon Park High
School, is currently majoring in
math education at the University
of Central Elorida.
She also is w on k mg as am intern
at NASA's Digit~al Learning


Network.
Hard working and well respect-
ed, Wood was able to pull strings
and get me special privileges and
guides. Manuel Virata, the soon to
retire director of special media
poects, lead the wa o ening
insider doors.
Out and about, he carried a
plastic grocery bag filled with
photographs of various galaxies
and different shots of the shuttles.

This is Timothy Avitabile, a tile technician. He has been working on shuttles for almost five
years. He does not touch the tiles. His job is to measure the step gap between them. The
tiles have to move, he said too tight and the tiles will crack; too loose and the heat can get
in. The vast majority of people working at the Kennedy Space Center work for contractors,
about 12,000 people. Only 2,000 individuals at KS~C actually work for NASA.


This is inside the Vehicle Assembly Building. The hole in the.
fencing is to allow the orange solid fuel tank to be moved
from one side of the building to the other. Then it is lowered
down into place alongside the shuttle, in between the rock-
et~s. The lights in the lowei* half of the photo are on the
portable launch pad the rockets and tanks sit on.


With the launch tower in the background, and at a 90
degree angle to the left from most traditional liftoff photo
angles, the final stop screens for the escape buckets can be
seen, as well as the emergency bunker. The buckets have
only been used once, in a drill. They travel by gravity on wire
rope and go 45 mph.

bag with a great smile and
give away a photograph.
He was equally generous
with me all day.
We followed the route a
shuttle craft takes getting
ready for its mission, starting
at the orbiter assembly area,
a huge building with four
separate work bays.
As I walked in I was
reminded of a well-stocked,
well-maintained auto parts
store.
Not that it really looked
like that, but there was the
same gleaming cleanliness,
the mechanical corners and
sense of color coordinated
order.
A large counter filled the
front middle space from
where the duty officer direct-
ed the work.
Virata checked in, explain-
ing we would only observe
from the floor. We were told
not to go up any steps, or
cross any lines, but otherwise
were left entirely to our-
selves-
Directly behind the count-
er, and completely filling the
space, was the space shuttle
Discovery.
But it was hard to see at
first because it sat cocooned
in a mesh and weave of
pipes, supports, hoses, tags,
platforms, cranes, and so
much else it was impossible
to break it all apart. Instead I
glimpsed pieces of the shuttle
that appeared almost camou-
flaged, peeking out from
behind or in between odd
angles.
Someone had to outhine the
first wing tip for me.
Other things, however,
stuck out boldly.
The rear landing gear was
lowered but without tires.
The metal post was so shiny
and sparkly it looked new,
but at the same time a little
strange.
I stood there for a minute
trying to figure out why.
It took time to occur to me
-- the only shuttles I had
ever studied were either toy
models or flat photographs. It
was seeing the shining metal
in three dimensions, so real
and so much more substan-
tive than imagination that
was the difference. For some
bizarre reason, I was sur-
prised the shuttle wasn't
made out of plastic.
For the first time I took in
how immense the Discovery
is and how powerful the
forces it faces. It was the
moment I stepped from sci-
ence fiction into physics.


One really obig building

Vehicle Assembly Building'
the fourth biggest building on
Earth-
A building so big the flag
painted on its exterior is the
size of a football field.
A building so big experts
had to be brought in because
clouds developed near the
ceiling and it rained indoors.
A building so big that
when I walked in and looked
straight up the building's

rof saged wt er-
tigo.
On either side, behind
fencing that goes all the way
up to the ceiling too, are the
spaces where the rocket .
stages and fuel tanks are
brought and assembled verti-
cal e shuttle's distinctive

orange middle tank, the solid
fuel tank, is built in one
piece down in Louisiana and
brought by barge to the space
center. I could just make it


out behind the fencing.


1 9`~


which reminded me of a
futuristic Eiffel Tower, I got
to explore all the way
around.
There is a deep and wide
concrete, trench, which guides
part of the blast back away
from the tower. The ground
there is burned black in
places, yet bright green
sprigs of new grass are mixed
n.
The heavy duty anchor
chain fence, the top designed
to curl away from the blast'
is burned as black as the
ground. It has the Star Wars
rusted look of much used
equipment.
Stand there during a lift
off, Virata said, and I would
be both cremated and sieved'
that is cooked and blown
through the links on the
fence.
I was shown where the
metal, escape buckets go'
should a last minute catastro-
phe send the astronauts and
launch crew running for safe-


Initially the fuel tank is
kept on the opposite side of
the building from the shuttle
and its two rockets.
Once those are ready, the
fuel tank is lifted by cranes
on its side of the building
until it is higher than the
shuttle assembly, and then
lined up with a large open
space in the fencing.
Another crane slides the
fuel tank across to the other
side of the building, using
another large open space in
the opposite fencing to posi-
tion the fuel tank between the
two rockets, and slowly
lower it into place. The
whole unit sits on top of one
of NASA's three mobile
launch platforms.
Looking through anchor
chain fence at the portable
launch platform, with the
rockets already in place for
the next flight, it reminded
me of an oil rig. The columns
of rocket were again, some-
what camouflaged, by all the
support equipment around
themr. But the portable launch
platform appeared to have
layers of deck and maritime
style ladders. .
We were so close it was
too big to be understood in a
glance the unit,"shuttle
and pad together, weigh


about 17 million pounds.
When the shuttle and its
propulsion'system are mar-
ried and ready to go, a gigan-
tic machine called a crawler-
transporter is brought into the
assembly building and
,maneuvered under the *
launching pad.
It then transports every-
thing the 3.5 miles to the
launch site.
To understand how outsize
the crawler is, consider these
facts: Its treads weigh a ton
apiece, there are 57 treads on
each track, there are eight
tracks, and at 5 feet, 8 inches
tall, my head did not come
close to the top qf them. The
crawler is about 20 feet high,
114 feet wide and 131 feet
long. It weighs 6 million
pounds. It has to run on
crushed rock because it
destroys concrete.
There are driveways to
each of the two launch sites,
both the width of U.S. 27 -
the crawler takes up all that
space.
It takes six hours for the
crawler to travel the 3.5
miles using diesel fuel it
gets 42 feet a gallon or 125
gallons a mile.

The launch pad
Out at the launch tower,


not to keep the heat down.
Instead, it is to absorb sound
vibrations, which would oth-'
eritise shake the whole
assembly apart.
I had such a great, inform-
ative time, got so wound up
in what I was seeing, that by
the time we were doneI was
trying- to think of ways an
out-of-shape, math-chal-
lenged, near-sighted, knock-
kneed, over-the-hill (although
younger than John Glenn)
guy like me could get a tour
of the inside of the Discovery
--.while it was under way of
course.
Then again ...


ty.
The buckets, attached to
the tower by the shuttle's
entrance, can~ be cut loose to
hurtle down wires at 45 mph.
The people in them may run
for a bunker at the bottom, or
to an armored personnel car- .
rier all the astronauts have to
learn how to drive.
There is a watei tower near
the launch tower. At every
lift off, just at ignition,
300,000 gallons of water are -
released in one yvast swoosh,
dretiching the rockets and
shuttle. It takes all of 22 sec-
onds.
It's purpose, I learned, was

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop

Got to' or 'get

to' go to church?
Is church merely a .
building with a steeple on
top where some feel like
they've 'got to' go? Or is
it just another building
some don't enter?
For me, it's hard to
imagine my life without
church. When Sunday
came, I was glad because
I would 'get to' go to
church.
And, herein, lays a fun-
damental difference in
attitude. Do we view it
as a chore, ignore it, or
count it as a privilege?
Church is not a build-
ing. It's the people. We
are part of the family of
God believers who
care for and encourage
one another. Within these
walls we find security,
belonging and hope.
Today, many don't see
any reason to attend
church worship services
or classes. They haven't
been raised in the-church
and don't know the God
of the Bible. Life is too
busy and that's their only
day. offn. ;
But, when we obey

r wardso 11Word What
God requires of us, he
equip us to do and bless-

workingh tawwhaa desn't
work in our minds.
For example, my hus-
band worked hours that
could have allowed him
to say,-"I don't have time
for church. It's my only
day off."
Instead, because of his
commitment to Christ and
our family, he led by
example and took us to
church. Church became
not only our family's
place to worship, grow,
and be challenged in our
faith; but, it was the place
we built friendships and
socialized. It encouraged
the practical application
of our faith at home,
school and the workplace.
And yet, the yard work
got done. Household
chores were shared and
accomplished and we still
had time for fun activities
as a family. The time in
church was well spent
and nothing was neglect-
ed. That's God's faithful
economy.
It makes me think of
Hebrews 10: 23 25a,
NIV that says, "Let us
hold unswervingly to the
hope we profess, for he
who promised is faithful.
And let us consider how
we may spur one another
on toward love and good
deeds. Let us not give up
meeting together, as some
are in the habit of doing,
but let us encourage one
another."
Consistently hearing
the teaching of God's
Word reminds us how
valuable we are to him -
so valuable that he died
and rose again to give us
eternal life.
With David in Psalm
122: 1, NKJV, let's say, "I
was glad when they said
to me, let us go into the
house of the Lord."
We 'get to' go! Selah
Jan Merop of Sebring is a

because a "'tenser" deal will arise. The
real deal for you is just around the cor-
ner.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) Are
you counting chickens that you just don't
possess, Capricorn? Don't shop or buy
above your head. Otherwise you'll find
yourself in a financial mess by June.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) When
looking for projects to put an end to your
boredom, Aquarius, don't .look beyond
matters in your house and with your own
family.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Pisces,

Taurus (April 21-May 21) Taurus,
it's reasonable for you to be upset with

too long.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) -
Sometimes surprises come in small
packages, and that's just what will hap-
pen this week, Gemini. You'll find the
best things when you're hardly looking
for them.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) Cancer,
while you often' want to be everyone's

:Slah...not

On the one hand, you
almost feel sorry for him.
For one Mi. Isiah Thomas
and how he's being treated.
SNew Knicks general man-
a er Donnie Walsh has been
g giving us snippets of what
Thomas' new role for the
team will be since he was
canned as the head coach,
but still remains with the
organization.
SWhat we've gotten so far
iS that Thomas will have no
official title, nobody will
report to him and he is
barred from having contact
with the team.
Huh?
This is somebody who the

$1.8 mlin n h dosn t
to have, any responsibility.
It's like that Seinfeld
episode where George
Costanza isn't sure if he was
hired, but shows up anyway,
acting as if he has the job,
and does nothing except sit
in his office, sharpen-pencils,
nap oh, and put the Penske
file in a new binder.
Is that what Isiah will be
in charge of, putting the
exorbitant contracts he took
on with questionable trades
and acquisitions, into new
binder most like he's Milton
in Office Space, being ban-
ished to the basement and
having his stapler stolen -
except that Isiah will still be
getting his paycheck.
It must seem rather insult-
ing and demeaning to
Thomas to be such a pariah
in the company that they're
essentially telling him to go
sit in his office and do noth-
ing.
Then again, considering

BRADENTON It was a
night of missed opportunities
for the Blue Streaks as *they
fell in the District 10-4A title
game to Braden River, 5-1-
The chance for the
district championship, Bradel
firstly, got by Sebring, I
as did the hosting of
the Regional playoff S
Sb
game this Tuesday.
And it was the scor-
ing chances this might
that were missed, .
send ng the dominoes of
opportunities toppling down-
In all but two innings the
Streaks had runners in scoring
position, three times having
the bases loaded.
Yet it was only on a
dropped third strike in the
third that their lone run of the
night would come iq off of
crafty Pirate southpawNathan


Pittman .
"He was a crafty little dude
with a lot of off-speed stuff,"
head coach Hoppy Rewis
said. "There~ aren't teams in
any league who'll do well
against that. In the pros you
have to throw in the
River 90s if you're right-
handed and in the 80s
if you're left-handed.
ig There's a reason for
that."


It certainly was a
Glavine-like perform-
ance as time and again


he used his curve to keep the
Sebring hitters off balance,
striking out 12 and with only
Kyle Long's first-inning sin-
gle and Cody~ Higgins third-
inning double being hit well.
Higgins, meanwhile,
pitched effectively enough
with just three of the five runs

See STREAKS, page 4D

many missed scoring chances for the Blue Streaks to overcome Braden River in the
District 10-4A title game Friday night.

News-Suln cor-respondcelt
SEBRING - After 14
successful years as a
Sebiring girls softball coach,
ana sporting a 139-58
record- as head coach, Lee
Tolar has decided to hang
up his hat.
"I told the girls the
Monday after districts, and
I still have to hand in my
letter to the school district,
but as far as I'm concerned
"its oasa ad, but I think
the girls are accepting and
ready to move forward."
"I will still be available
for whoever steps in as new
head coach, and I am going
to help athletic director
Terry Quarles pick~ a
replacement, but it's just
time to go.
"Coaching takes a
tremendous amount ~of time.
Most folks don't realize
that to do it~right, you got
to put in a lot of time.
That's the kind of person


who needs to replace me: A
knowledgeable person who
is willing to put in the extra
time. The girls deserve it."
With the current team sit-
ting lon mostly juniors, and
thieiifijority ret~urningTf6r -
next season, Tolar's deci-
sion is more of a segue of
success and not a definite
cut-off.
"I would have liked to
stay one more year to see
these girls through," said
Tolar. "But after some care-
ful thought I decided that
there will always be sen-
iors, and I made the deci-
sion that it's just time to
step down. It will leave the,,
next ~person in a good spot.
"I really want to keep the
progress rolling for Sebring
softball. This program is .
one of the best opportuni-
ties a high school girl has
to help get funding for col-
lege. That's what it's really
all about, helping them get
ahead in life."


Taking the job as head
coach in 2001, Tolar lead
the team to district champi-
onship three times, in 2003,
2004, 2007 and to a district
runner-up position- in 2008,
.but when discussing his
successful record, Tolar
humbly deflected the credit
to the person who helped
him learn the game, Nancy
Bates -
"Nancy was head coach
when I started, she recruit-
eadnmwl nohel d t as ass-
a freshman, and she really
helped me to understand the

ga ancy's experience and
excellent coaching skills
helped me to understand
how to handle certain situa-
tions and helped me to
learn to love the game right
away. I am grateful for that,
and the fact that I was able
to help coach my daughter
for four years "
See TOLAR, page 4D


News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE
Priscilla Adams and the rest of the Lady Blue Streaks will be
getting tips and advice on the diamond from another coach
next year, as Lee Tolar stepped down after 14 years with the
team, eight as its' head coach.

Kelsie Johnson, left, and Mary Midence, Sebring's Number 1 doubles team, won
Districts and qualified to go on to the State Competition in Orlando. The duo, unfortu-
nately fell to Nature Coast Tech 6-1, 6-0, but congratulations to the Lady Streaks for an
outstanding season and impressive accomplishment.

Formner Sebr-ing head coach
director. She always backed
us up, 100%. Finally, I'd like
to mention the school's
financial person, Natalie
Grubb. She really believed in
the team, and anytime we
needed something on the
spot, she was there for us."
What lies in store for
Tolar's future? Relaxation. "I
plan on doing some camping
and riding my bike," said
Tolar.
And with three district
championships and five state
appearances over his career,
it's a much needed rest, but
Tolar is not planning on
moving on and not looking
back.
"I'll always be there if
they need something."


Additionally, Tolar stated
the wins were really a team
effort.
"I gotta give praise to
Larry Johnson, my assistant.
He knows the game, and
especially the pitching, better
than anyone I know. He
never said no, and was
always there early or late.
Could not ask for a better
person at your side, he is top
notch. And the girls here at
Sebring have always b0een the
cream of the crop when it
comes to softball. We were
not always district champs,
but they sure acted like it.
That is one of the most
rewarding things you can get
out of the experience, to see
someone you coached suc-

as well. She is an awesome
