Hospital


remains

triathlon
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.slhutt@newssunt.com
SEBRING - The "black
cloud" that caused three key
players to leave the Heartland
Triathlon committee may be
dissipating.
Following a meeting Friday
between Florida Hospital -
the sprint triathlon's title
sponsor three years running -
and Greater Sebring Chamber
of Commerce representatives,
the leaders of each confirmed
the race is on.
It always was.
"The hospital has never
wavered on this," Florida
Hospital President Tim Cook
said Friday. "It's not about an
organization. It's about com-
munity."
Though Cook wasn't sure
who exactly called Friday's
meeting - maybe it was his
marketing department headed
by Cathy Ajbritton, he said -
it was never meant to be deter-
mine whether the hospital was
still on board.
"It was a re-affirmation that
we are on board." he said.
Friday's meeting was called
after the recent firing of the
chamber's president and chief
executive officer Dan
Andrews.
As the chamber deals with
its fiscal and leadership chal-
lenges, concerns rippled
throughout the community
about what would happen to
the events it organizes.
Interim chamber President
and CEO Sarah Pallone
returned the Heartland Idol
competition to its founder
Wednesday, citing a need to
re-focus on business develop-
ment and membership.
The chamber, however, will
continue to host the triathlon
under the shared leadership of
Pallone and chamber board of
directors Chairwoman Susan

To Ride Again


Crashes put spotlight (


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.comi
SEBRING - Riding a motor-
cycle is one of Deputy J.P. Fain's
favorite things to do - and he is
aware of the dangers.
"There is no greater fun in the
world I've had other than skydiv-
ing," Fain said. "But there is a
hazard that comes with it."
That hazard has been brought
to the forefront in the past few
weeks in Highlands County with
a spurt of motorcycle' accidents,
many of them caused by rider
error.
Last Saturday, 27-year-old
Travis O'Bannon of Sebring was
killed when he ran off Schlosser
Road on his motorcycle and hit a
tree. He was not wearing a hel-
met.
Two days earlier,- Francis
Duplessie of Avon Park, 90, was


critically injured when he
struck a truck that pulled in
front of him on U.S. 27
just north of Sebring.
On April 19, 69-
year-old Frank
G. McNellis
died when
he lost
control of
his motorcy-
cle on U.S. 27
near State Road
66.
And on April 9, 23-
year-old Tyler Floridino of
Middleburg wa;s reportedly
doing a wheelie on U.S. 27
when he lost control of his bike
and was killed.
There was also a wreck when a
man fled from police at more than

Safety i5ps
Though often associated with a
rebellious, carefree lifestyle, motor-
cycle riding can, and often has,
proven fatal to those who don't
follow the necessary pre-
cautions.
Drive defensively
Always pay attention to
what the drivers around you are
doing and always keep your eyes
on the road. A good rule of thumb is to
imagine you're invisible to other
motorists. Do your best to stay out of blind'
spots, as well.
Know the road conditions
While a pothole won't do much damage to
a car, it can be very dangerous when driving

Churches get ready

for hurricane season


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.chrisiy@newssiun.com
SEBRING - With the
hurricane season less than a
month away, community
organizations are bracing
themselves - with informa-
tion.
Friday's Disaster Seminar
for Churches did more than
spread the word about how
to prepare for a hurricane.
It showed those in atten-
dance that the .Emergency
Operations Center and local
law enforcement are ready
too.
The event was organized
by Suzanne Crews, the
Parish Nurse Coordinator
for Florida Hospital
Heartland Division, and
brought in about 100 guests.


Many people presented
information during the pro-
gram, including the director
of Highlands County
Emergency Management
Bill Nichols, Sheriff Susan
Benton, Lake Placid Police
Chief Phil Williams and
Avon Park Police
Department Public
Information Officer Kevin
Megno.
"They had a really good
group of people there today,
and those (in attendance) are
very interested and they will
go back to their churches
and spread that news,"
Nichols said. "That was a
very worthwhile thing today

Council to


discuss


Hoffman's


retirement

Workshop to focus on
city administrator's
replacement as well
as fire assessment
By MATT MURPHY
inatt.nnmurphy@newssun.com
SEBRING - The city
council workshop set for
Wednesday promises to be a
busy one, as three separate
items are on the agenda.
The original purpose of the
workshop, which begins at
2:30 p.m., was to hear the
presentation from the
Government Services Group
(GSG) on the proposed fire
assessment.
Last month, new council
president Bud Whitlock
added a discussion on the
"retirement of key employ-
ees" to the agenda.
But since then, the terms of
that discussion have changed
as well. Instead of discussing
several city employees, the
discussion has narrowed to
involve the retirement of cur-
rent City Administrator Bob
Hoffman and his likely
replacement, Assistant City
Administrator Scott
Noethlich.
"It's a discussion of pro-
moting Scott to city adminis-
trator and if we're going to
hire a new assistant city
administrator, and also the
possibility of if they're going
to keep Bob on in another
capacity," City Clerk Kathy
Haley said.
The plan is to promote
Noethlich to fill the adminis-
trator position . upon.
Hoffman's June 30 retire-
ment. Noethlich was promot-
ed to the assistant position in
March 2006, with the intent
to replace Hoffman upon his
retirement, Haley said. She
added that she is "99 percent
sure" Noethlich will be pro-

Another grow house bust


yields 61 pounds of pot


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - While serv-
ing a search warrant on a sus-
pected marijuana grow house,
officials may have uncovered
a link between its local pro-
duction and South Florida.
Jose Luna, 65, of 9118
Morgan Path in Sebring, and
Emerida Figueroa, 64, of Opa
Locka, were arrested last
week when deputies from the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office discovered 61 pounds
of marijuana growing in a
detached garage, according to
an arrest report by Deputy
John Singha.
Luna allegedly said he was
the caretaker of the 19 live
marijuana plants, and that it
was his-third harvest.


"He had received $15,000
once before from a previous
harvest," Singha said.
He continued to explain
when and how the operation
was established, as well as the
name of an unidentified per-
son from South Florida that
provided him the means to
start it, Singha said.
Luna was arrested, and is
still in custody on $248,000.
Figueroa said she receives
money from the unidentified
person to pay the mortgage
for Luna's property.
She is being held at the
Highlands County jail on
$247,500 bond.
They face charges of pro-
ducing and trafficking mari-
juana.

Three sisters stopped by the Sheriff's community service office recently and found several crime prevention pamphlets that
were interesting enough to take home and read closely. They were actually there to say hello to their sister-in-law, crime pre-
vention practitioner Nell Frewin-Hays who is married to their brother. (From left) Betty Caplan, Evelyn Hays, Letheta
Douglass, Paul Hinman, who helps Hays man the office, and Hays.


For Hays, persistence



prevails when all else fails


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - Police work
basically divides into three
broad categories: Preventing
crime; responding to a crime
in progress; and following up
after a crime has occurred.
Of these three, preventing
crime, while arguably the
most important - who,
except perhaps an adrenaline
junkie, wouldn't rather not be
robbed - is typically the
least respected and lowest
funded police department
division.
It is easy to see why.
Not only is there absolutely
no glamour in the slow and
steady approach that is neces-
sary to long-term success, but
there is no way to really
measure how much crime pre-
vention has actually occurred
- especially once a neigh-
borhood has been stabilized
and is back in the hands of its
residents.
Who, after all, notices the
routine and the ordinary?
How can the events that did-
n't happen be measured?
Yet the truth is that the
safest neighborhoods are
those where the neighbors
know each other, at least by
sight, care enough to watch
out for each other, and are
willing to create a formal
communications network
keeping each other informed.
Helping a community cre-
ate that structure and learn
how to use it efficiently is one
of the primary goals of crime
prevention units - so is
teaching people what to look
for, and what to do if they see
it.
This takes effort and per-
sistence, requiring, especially
in the beginning, direct sup-
port and leadership from law
enforcement.
Nell Frewin-Hays is the
crime prevention practitioner
who helps the sheriff's office
breathe life into new neigh-
borhood watch committees,
and maintain those already
established.
These committees, she said
forcefully, while a major
deterrent to crime, do more
for a community than that.
For example, by appointing
block captains who record
who lives where, and who is
away, rescue work after a nat-
ural disaster is much quicker
and more efficient.
Hays keeps binders filled

'with maps, street numbers,
names, and number of occu-
pants.
She said some of the retire-
ment communities, especially
fishing camps, can be confus-
ing to navigate, which is why
it is so important for emer-
gency responders to have
access to the information.
Block captains and an alert
community can be especially
helpful if a victim of
Alzheimer's comes up miss-
ing, she added. Her office is
trying to make sure individu-
als who wander get proper
identification. Which is one
reason she makes sure local
groups are made aware of
resources and new technolo-
gy.
On a recent day she visited
the Kissimmee River
Fisherman's Wharf to meet
with the homeowner's associ-
ation there.
She brought them signaling
lights that can be screwed
into a regular outdoor fixture.
Switch the light twice from
the inside and the bulb begins
to flash so people will know
help is needed.
The county is working to
get grant money so the lights
can be more widely distrib-
uted at no cost. They are on
sale, however, at Home
Depot.

When meeting with groups,
Hays, and her colleague Paul
Hinman, stress sensible pre-
cautions - clearing thick
plantings that cut the street
view to entrances and light
them after dark - and cre-
ative ones. For example, pro-
tect windows by planting
spiny vegetation under them,
crown of thorns or
bougainvillaea are useful.
Knowledge helps in staying
safe, Hays said. So another of
her responsibilities is getting
the word out to local groups
about criminal 'activity in
their area.
Hays is pleased that many
communities have taken her
seriously and are working to
help themselves. She reports
she sees 46 watch committees
regularly.
Hays works outlof the new
community service office in
the Lakeshore Mall, down by
the food court. This is not to
be confused with the commu-
nity service assigned by the
courts, nor is the office a
satellite station. Crime should
not be reported there.
When it is open, however,
there are pamphlets available
on almost every subject
regarding safety, and Hinman
and Hays are happy to answer
questions. Hays can reached
at 385-0024.

Nell Frewin-Hays is a
crime prevention practi-
tioner with the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office.
A first glance at her
resume and she seems an
unlikely choice.
Originally from
Rockford, Ill., she
majored in biology at
Tulane University in New
Orleans.
She was such a talented
golfer, however,' that
straight out of school she
became a golf pro.
She qualified for the
LPGA teaching division
in 1976, and the PGA in
1984.. She became a
leader in the golfing
world, holding national
level offices, including
president of the LPGA ,
and was considered a trail
blazer at the time.
In 2004, she was
selected one of the 50
most influential women
in golf and was honored
with a engraved brick just
outside the Hall of Fame.
In 1979, playing on a
mini-tour, she discovered

Florida Community College
graduates will celebrate their
self-determination, diligence,
and long hours of study when
they are honored during com-
mencement at 6:45 p.m. in the
SFCC Auditorium, Highlands
Campus.
Speakers will be Dr.
Norman L. Stephens Jr.,
SFCC president; Dr. Louis
Kirschner, chair, SFCC
District Board of Trustees;and
Dienatann (Dee Dee)
Darceus, SFCC Class of 2008.
Bishop Benjamin F. Carter Jr.,
pastor of Bethel Pentecostal
Holiness Church of Avon
Park, will give the invocation
and benediction. Music will
be performed by Nelly
Guzman Ford.
Darceus, the student gradu-
ation keynote speaker, is a
2002 Hardee Senior High
School graduate and will
receive her associate in arts
degree. She has applied to
SFCC's Radiography
Program for next fall.
"I always had an interest in
X-rays and CT scans, dealing
medical machines," she said.
"I've been a CNA (certified
nursing assistant) for five
years, working at the Florida
Institute for Neurologic
Rehabilitation, Inc. (FINR) in
Wauchula. I enjoy working
with people and to see them
get better and return home."
Darceus' presentation at the
SFCC commencement cere-
monies are of particular
importance to her :family. "I
know my parents are happy,"
she said. "I'm the first person
in my family to graduate from
college. My family were
farmworkers who had no edu-
cation, so it's important - for
financial reasons and to better
myself and be a role model to
my sisters."
Her sisters are currently

ate in 2010."
Darceus' cousin, Wilney
Francois, graduated in 2007
from the Licensed Practical
Nursing Program. "In high
school, we were in competi-
tion somewhat - for sports,
grades, career. I'd say he's
one of my inspirations."
However, her children,
Zyann Laila Parker, 3, and
Davarus Zondre Parker, 1, are
her greatest inspiration. "I
want them to know that even
though I was young when I
had kids, it's possible to go to
school and get what you want.
It's not the end of me."
As a young mother and col-
lege student, Darceus has had
a lot of support from family
and her church. "If not for my
mother, I wouldn't be in
school. Mom, my sisters, and
day care at Higher Ground
(Ministry) helped me take
care of the kids while I was in
school.
"My job also helped me out
by arranging work hours spe-
cially for me so I could get 40
hours a week and go to class-
es. I took classes on Tuesday
and Thursday nights and
.Monday and Wednesday
mornings." Some days,
Darceus worked a 3-11 p.m.
or 7-11:30 p.m. shift.."Mama
says I'm strong," she said. To
maintain her energy, she


prayed a lot and took her vita-
mins. "I eat healthy, and I got
study time at work between
shifts."
Her suggestions for other
students with young children
are these: "A mother wants
the best for her kids. You have
to get an education. No matter
what your situation is,
through God, you can better
yourself. There are programs
with day care. Ask for help,
research. You also have to
know about . budgeting.
Everyone has wants, but you
have to decide, 'Do I really
need it now? Can I afford it?
You have to be dedicated and
have self-discipline.' "
Nearly 700 students will
have met SFCC graduation
requirements by Monday's
commencement. Of these, 537
will receive associate in arts
degrees, associate in science
degrees, associate in applied
science degrees, occupational
certificates, or college credit
certificates, and 161 will be
graduates of SFCC's Adult
Education program.
Approximately 200 plan to
walk across the stage during
commencement.

A Southwest Florida Water
Management District project
will help a Highlands County
citrus grower reduce ground-
water pumping.
The ,project involves
installing an integrated irriga-
tion system that includes soil
moisture sensors connected to
automated value controllers at
Alpine Grove, which is
owned by Running W. Citrus,
Limited Partnership.
Soil moisture sensors
increase irrigation efficiency
by only irrigating ,when water
is needed.
According to the .Alpine
Grove water use permit, the
1,315-acre citrus grove is per-
mitted to use an average of
1,755,900 gallons per day
(gpd) for irrigation. Since
January 2003,- the grove's
groundwater usage has aver-
aged at or slightly above the
total permitted average daily
quantities, but 86 percent
below the drought annual
average. The high water use is
attributed to the prolonged
drought the area is experienc-
ing. However, the citrus
grower recently changed irri-


gation methods, which is
expected to help reduce
ground water use. The grove
previously used to use over-
head spray irrigation, but now
it uses a low-volume system
that applies the water to the
tree roots.
The project is part of the
District's Facilitating
Agricultural Resource
Management Systems
(FARMS) program, which is a
cost-share reimbursement
program, which is a cost-
share reimbursement program
that conserves water and pro-
tects water quality. The
FARMS project is expected to
reduce pumping by at least
five percent, or about 87,800
gpd. Highlands Cotinty is part
of a designated water caution
area because it is experienc-
ing environmental impacts
due to overpumping.
This project is expected to
cost $40,000, of which up to
$20,000 will be funded by the
District's Governing Board,
the District's Peace River
Basin Board and state appro-
priations. The remaining will
be paid by the farm.

Play it safe

Water.
Even the word itself is refreshing.
Think chilled, tall glasses, tinkling with ice, or soft
rain on the roof late at night, or in deep, sun rippled,
blue pools with the sounds of splashing and laughter.
Cooling, soothing, water.
But dangerous too.
Water kills, and it doesn't take much of it, or very
long.
Drowning is the number one cause of death in chil-
dren under 5 in Florida.
It is the number two cause of injury-related death in
the nation among children 1 to 14 years of age. That
means that approximately 1,500 lives are lost each
year, according to the National Institutes of Health.
Unfortunately, for every death, there are five near-
deaths.
Some of those children escape without harm, but a
considerable number of young people are damaged
for life.
It happens as a result of the oxygen depravation.
Take the case of Bo Alvarez here in Sebring, who
was 2 years old in 2005.
When a babysitter lost track of him, he managed to
wander into a neighbor's yard where he ended up in
the pool. He had stopped breathing by the time he was
found, but after 20 minutes of CPR was revived.
In the 20 minutes without oxygen, however, his
brain suffered catastrophic, and to date seemingly
irreversible, damage. He cannot talk, walk or eat and
is fed through a tube.
It is a nightmare.
Made worse because, like most drowning and near-
drowning incidents it could have been avoided.
Don't make the mistake of thinking it can never
happen to you.
Even one of our editors had a recent near miss, and
he was on one side of the pool arid his wife on the
other, both watching their children. But in the five
seconds it took to look away and back, their youngest
son, who does not yet know how to swim, had fallen
into the pool while walking alongside it.
Our editor isn't sure how he cleared the rail and got
into the water as fast he did, but he had his son secure
before the boy was even scared. But just another 10 or
20 seconds and the situation could have spiraled out
of control.
Children have drowned because they couldn't be
seen at the bottom of the pool and hadn't yet been
missed.
With the end of the school year coming up quickly,
and knowing that 80 percent of drowning deaths
occur during the summer, now is the time to get ready.
Remember that water presents many dangers - no
single safety device protects against everything, and
no one is ever entirely safe.
So rule number one: Actively supervise children
around water. Never let them swim alone. Pay atten-
tion all the time, no double tasking. Best to have more
than one person supervising so they can take turns.
Rule number two: Make the pool safe. Fence it off,
make sure it has a latching gate. Alarms are available.
Keep a flotation device on hand for emergencies, or a
long pole that can be held onto.
Rule number three: Make sure your children learn
how to swim, or at least know how to stay afloat.
Seventy-four percent of all drowning victims do not'
know how to swim; 73 percent ages 5 to 9; 30 percent
ages 10 to 14.
Classes are available at the high school pools, the
YMCA, and many camps and church groups.

Andrews' firing
handled wrong
Editor:
This letter is regarding the
discharge of 'Dan Andrews:
Whether or not Mr.
Andrews' performance was
up to the standards of the
, board or not, the way his dis-
charge was handled reflects
a blatant abuse of power. We
have never heard of such a
disregard of fiduciary
responsibility by a board of
directors.
Before we continue, let us
say that we have only known
Mr. Andrews for a short peri-
od of time, we are new to the
community. But we believe
whole-heartedly that Dan
had only the best interest of
the chamber and the commu-
nity as a whole in all of his
endeavors.
Let's discuss the handling
of Mr. Andrews' discharge.
The proper and humane way
to replace an executive in
any organization:
1. Allowing the executive
to resign.
2. Since it is personnel
matter it should have not
been made public. We
believe the confidentiality
laws allow a no comment to
be made on personnel mat-
ters (unless of course board
members needed the public
press).
3. Why didn't the board
with all their wisdom (if they
have any) give Mr. Andrews
some help or at least some
management training in cor-
recting the deficiency they
so noted.
As a couple who attend
various community func-
tions, enjoy what Sebring
has to offer and was proud of
what our chamber was doing
in the community. We can
only say shame on you board
of director.! You have deliv-
ered a black eye where one
.was never needed to be seen.
This could have been han-
dled in a more professional
manner.

Things we should
know
Editor:
I'd like to share with you
some exerpts from "Truth
For Muslims," by John
Marion who has lived for
several years in Afghanistan
and Pakistan observing the
Islamic culture. He tells of
three former Muslims who
spoke at a 50th Annual
Academy Assembly. They
describe themselves as for-
mer Muslim terrorists, two
of which were members of
the PLO terror organization.
All three say as Muslims
they were taught to hate. All
three have become
Christians and are speaking
out to educate Americans
about the evils of Islamic
ideology. As former terror-
ists, they are uniquely quali-
fied to address this critical


issue. This is why the Air
Force Academy invited them
to speak.
The Council On Islamic
Relations was not happy
because they were not also
invited to speak, hoping to
counteract what the three
former Islamists had said.
The Council On Islamic
Relations has a long history
of promoting Islam as being
a benign, peaceful religion.
They have perfected the art
of public whining in order to
generate sympathy toward
Islam. They understood the
American mindset well. In
their efforts to advance
Islamic ideology in the
United States, they play on
our rights of free speech, our
tolerance toward diversity
and our desire for social and
radical equality. They are
good at influencing politics,
having an office on Capitol
Hill for many years.
According to my sources,
one of these converted
Islamic terrorists has been
approached with a death
threat by a Jordanian college
student speaking to him, in
Arabic telling him he was an
enemy of Islam and must
die. Because of death
threats, these three convert-
ed Muslims live in seclusion.
It is a complicated situation
and islam is an old and com-
plicated problem. We need
more people like these three
who are willing to speak out
to inform the American soci-
ety just what Islam is and the
grave danger they pose to
our people. One of their
goals is to silence those who
work to inform us. The goal
of this source of opposition
is to hold Muslims and polit-
ical leaders responsible for
how they respond to Islam.
The problem is theologi-
cat, spiritual and ideological.
Theological, if anyone
denounces Islam, he must
die. Spiritual, when these
three men became
Christians, they turned away
from terror and death.
Ideological, they use phrases
like: Islam is one of the
world's great religions.
Islam means peace. Islam
has been hijacked by terror-
ists. Christians are killers
too.
For America to change
things we must know the
truth about Islam. When
Muslims realize the life
changing truth of Christ,
things will change. A book
should be out soon that will
be very informative. We all
need to do all we can to learn
and work together to stem
the tide of this dilemma and
ask the good Lord's guid-
ance as we progress.

What is behind
Wright's 'barrage'
Editor:
Regarding Barack Obama
campaign: I thought Jerry
Falwell was dead.


Now we have a resurrec-
tion in the, persona of the
"Rev." Wright!
We know the Bush-
Cheney campaign was
rigged to pay pastors to sway
the votes of their followers,
as were the veterans to lie
about John Kerry's records
of the gun boat scenario in
Vietnam.
Could it be that Bill
Clinton so salivates for posi-
tion of overshadowing the
presidency that he has cho-
sen to ship a few green backs
into the good reverend's
pocket? "For the good of the
church, of course?"
Why would Rev. Wright
travel from strategic points
to strategic points spreading
his "defensive" barrage that
he knows will hurt Barack
Obama's campaign?
This is a mark of planned
throat cutting that only
Washington old-timers are
experts at!'

Artisitc Bodyworks is
tops
Editor:
The group at Artistic
Bodyworks are tops in my
book. I would recommend
them to any one.
They have done work me
for twice and I was very sat-
isfied both times. So anyone
who needs body work done
on a car, take it to them and
you will a satisfied customer
like me.

'Cole Porter' was a
splendid evening
Editor:
My profound thanks to
friends Ed and Stella
McGowan for taking me to
the Highlands Little Theatre
last Friday night to see "Cole
Porter & Friends," a cabaret
style musical extravaganza.
This was directed by Pete
Pollard and a talented cast of
singers.
Hearing all of these "old"
songs brought back memo-
ries. I have been a season
ticket holder for 28 years
and I was once told that I
never said anything "bad"
about the shows and I never
could.
Coming in May our bril-
liant "young" director
Cameron Rieck will bring
"youth shows." In June we'll
see "Dearly Departed." The
last fall show will be direct-
ed by Tammie Pollard and
this is one you cannot miss.
Tammie has discovered a
young singer who will "blow
your socks off!" I wasn't
supposed to tell you this, but
I have, so go and enjoy.
Remember to say thank
you to all of the hard work-
ers who keep us entertained
right here in our hometown,
and who needs Broadway
and aren't we lucky?

have to fight for it? Yes. If we
take stands, we will sometimes
have to fight to defend them.
Surrendering our principles so

peace - it's cowardice. At least,

Word games

Monday, I was starting back
home from Jacksonville, where
I had spent several days seeing
family and building one of my
sisters a computer. My family
loves me. That is fortunate,
because when I'm building a
computer I become very
stressed and am less than won-
derful to be around.
So I turn on the radio to find
something to keep me company
while I travel. I come across
Neal Boortz's talk show. I had
heard of Boortz, even heard him
speak one time. He's a libertari-
an who is a major supporter of
the fair tax. He is also one who,
in my opinion, does not suffer
fools gladly. For example, on
his Web site, he has a FAQ (fre-
quently asked questions for the
acronym challenged) there is a
question: "You're very offensive
'and insensitive sometimes."
Boortz's response? "Really? So
is life. Deal with it."
I didn't get to hear a lot of
the show - if I recall correctly, I
listened to him while traveling
from my hotel to Barnes and
Noble, where I finally got to use
a gift card - but one thing he
said stuck in my mind.
Boortz suggested that people
who don't support the war in
Iraq be asked a simple'question:
"What is your definition of
peace?" He pointed out that
when the Communists were
asked this years ago, they were
very clear on their answer:
peace was when those who
opposed communism were gone.
In other words, when commu-
nism won.
It's a good question. And
something I spent a few minutes
pondering when I wasn't worry-
ing about being killed by other
crazy drivers, many of whom
seem to calfiJacksonville home.
I play wilthwojrds for a living.-
I know that words can mean dif-
ferent things to different people.
Don't believe me? Let me toss
out a couple of examples.
If you were to ask me what a
reasonable amount to spend in a
bookstore, I would say it
depended on what the credit
limit was on my check card. My
husband would have a different
definition. Since he runs the
finances, I have to bow to his
definition - but it is something
we disagree on.
Or if you want to have some
real fun, try to get people to
agree what "conservative" or
"liberal" means in the current
political climate. You get a
roomful of people that agrees on
the meanings of these two
words and I will admit you're
smarter (and braver) than I am.
So Boortz's question is a
good one. What do I (or you)
mean when we say we want
peace?
Almost no one would say
they didn't want world peace.
It's a stock answer for any Miss
America contestant. The real
question is, what is peace to
you? To me?
Is peace simply the absence
of conflict? If so, what price are
we willing to pay for it? Will
we simply give in to anything
and everything someone else
wants just so there won't be a
fight? Is that peace?
Is peace totally defeating
everyone who doesn't share
your views? That was the
Communist answer. It seems to
me that it is the radical Muslim
view as well. Is the price of
peace surrender?
To me, while this may be the
absence of conflict, but it isn't
peace. It's caving in to bullies
and accepting slavery so you
don't have to take a stand.
Does that mean that getting
peace sometimes means you

four students in Highlands County to receive a $500 art scholarship from this years Student
Art Show.

Artistic students earn scholarships


By TREY CHRISTY

SEBRING - While
Highlands County may not be
the center of the art world, it
was Thursday night as 42
graduating seniors participat-
ed in the Student Art Show.
Four of those soon-to-be
graduates received art schol-
arships valued at W500 each.
Brittney White has a pas-
sion for photography, and
wants to turn that passion into
a living as a photojournalist.
But she's not in it for the
money.
"I want to go over to
Africa," she said, mentioning
the Democratic Republic of
the Congo.
With all the violence in the
region, she wants to shoot her
share, but using her lens.
With her talents in graphic
design, she helped raise
money for fellow Sebring
High School student Jesse
Eller to go to Africa as a mis-
sionary.
"He really cares a lot," she
- said. "It means a lot to him."
According to White, most
of the student body owns a
'Send.Jesse' T-shirt, and the
proceeds have raised almost
half of the money needed for
him to make the trip.
Her simple, cost-effective
design was created using
stencils and spray paint.
She plans on attending
Florida State University to
major in graphic design.
For Andy Starkey, art is in
her blood.
"I grew up in a cultured
family, so it's hard to avoid
art," she said.
A talented art student, she
also plays piano and guitar.
Her outlook on art evolved
as she went through high
school taking the variety of
art classes SHS has to offer.
"When I took classes as a
freshman I started taking it
seriously," she said.
She moved on to ceramics,
but couldn't get away from
her love of two-dimensional

pieces.
Starkey uses flamboyant
colors, but depicts '"very seri-
ous" topics.
One of her paintings, titled
"Toxic Wasteland," uses lay-
ers of Starkey-styled neon
colors and shadows to form a
surreal skyline.
The colors contradict the
content while unconvention-
ally contributing to the con-
cept.
"It's easy for people to
grasp a concept that reflects
on society," she said.
While Starkey likes her
ideas to caress the canvas,
Avon Park High student Josh
Thrift prefers to play with
clay.
"When you work with clay,
if it's something you don't
like, you can just ball it back
up," he said. "It's not perma-
nent like when a brush touch-
es canvas. If I don't like it I
can redo it and redo it."
With such high standards in
his own work, it's hard to
believe Thrift was shocked to
hear he won one of the four
scholarships.
"I didn't think my stuff


would be in competition with
everyone else," he said.
Not a fan of watercolors,
when Thrift was asked to sit
down and paint a flower, he
took it to the next level.
His flower looked like a
usual sunflower, but was
engulfed by a jungle-like for-
est of all kinds of greenery.
"I just sat down, relaxed,
then drew whatever - just
went with it," the modest
artist said. "I put a lot of stuff
into it; tried to catch the eye."
The most hands-on exhibit
of the show was that. of
Robert Harbison.
He was arguably the hard-
est working student of SHS
art teacher Steve Vandam,
wheeling out roughly 300
bowls by his estimation.
"I did a little bit of sculpt-
ing first year, tried two
(dimensional) colors, and did
a little bit of everything this
year," he said.
The scholarships are named
after Aronette Schneck, who
was one of the founders of the
Highlands Art League and
served as the league's first
president.

RIDE
Continued from 1B
120 mph in Avon Park, but
that rider escaped injury.
"It's sad the fatalities
we've had recently," Fain
said. "But it's all about riding
safely."
Fain is a motorcycle deputy
with the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office who has been
operating a motorcycle as part
of his job for the past 10
years.
This puts him in a good
position to offer advice to fel-
low riders, whether they are
experienced bikers, or those
who are just getting into two-
wheeled transportation either
for the fun or just as a way to
save gas money.
"Some are riding their
bikes to work a lot more," he
said, indicating rising gas
prices as the reason behind it.
"A' couple friends said they
started riding them more for
that very reason."
More bikes are on the road
due to a rise in popularity, not
just gas prices.
When some people think of
riders they may think of the
'60's tough guys without jobs,
Fain said, but today's riders
come from all walks of life.
He mentioned retired busi-
nessmen and other profes-
sionals that have caught
motorcycle fever.
"With the youth you are
getting those that are into
extreme sports," he added.
But with all their populari-
ty comes the added responsi-


ability.
Fain said of all the things a
driver needs to do while oper-
ating a car, that number more
than doubles when making
the transition from four
wheels to two.
"You have to be aware of
more things," he said. "It
requires an enormous amount
of your attention to more
details."
To legally operate a motor-
cycle, riders are required to
get motorcycle endorsements
from the Department of
Motor Vehicles. It includes a
simple test that goes over
driving rules and a ride with a
few basic tests.
To become familiar with
operating a bike safely, Fain
suggests taking a course as
well.
"I would recommend it for
anyone that wants to get into
motorcycle riding," he said.
"You want to learn how to do
it right."
More than 20 years ago,
Fain learned from a friend,
and 10 years later, when tak-
ing classes to be a motorcycle
officer, he had to unlearn a lot
of bad habits .he picked up, he
said.
"It was one of- the more
intense courses I've taken and
that includes the SWAT class-
es I've been to," he said.
The class was difficult
because it prepared him to be
on a bike eight hours a day.
Due to its size, a motorcy-
cle is less visible to other
drivers than a car so riders
need to have a heightened
sense of awareness.


"Always try to second
guess what drivers are doing,"
Fain said. "You don't know
how many times cars would
come into my lane when I was
on a marked police bike."
Another thing riders can do
to stay safe is to wear the
proper protective clothing.
Fain said wearing a helmet
is a "personal issue," but
added that statistics show
they save lives,
Though he doesn't have a
choice while working for the
HCSO, he always wears one
on his personal bike. The tem-
peratures soar in July, but
Fain said there is no reason
for at least taking some pre-
caution.
"I get a kick out of guys
wearing the flip flops, shorts
and tank tops," he said. "Even
gloves - if someone trips
you, the first thing you use is'
your hand."
In one crash Fain recalled
losing a bit of skin on his
hand, but it could have been
serious if he wasn't wearing
gloves, he said.
Together, awareness and
the proper precautions can
save lives.
Car drivers can help make
roads safer by paying close
attention to the roads they're
on.
"The traffic has picked up
here in Highlands," Fain said.
"Look for motorcycles and
give them the same considera-
tion as a car."

For up-to-date information

while they may cover the area

High was concerned with
two issues in leaving, he told

lack of leadership and lack of a

mittee's next meeting.
Her challenge to the cham-
ber board is for each director

TIPS
Continued from 1A
a motorcycle. Even puddles can be
danger pits for bikers. Some bikers
also ride off center in a lane to
avoid the slippery zone caused by
leaking fluid, etc. from cars who fre-
quent major roads. When driving
on wet roads, realize that even the
painted lines and directionals on
the roads are substantially more
dangerous when wet than when
they're dry, so always slow down


when crossing such spots.

Wear protective gear
While legal, riding without a hel-
met is a foolish and unnecessary
risk, one that new riders especially
should never take.
In addition to a helmet, wear the
right clothing as well. Proper gloves
(non-slip durable gloves), pants
(protective leathers), jackets
(again, leather and always long
sleeved) and shoes (leather boots)
could be your sole line of defense if


you get in an accident. If you'll be
driving at night, bright uppers are
recommended, as you'll be far
more visible to other motorists.

Buy the right bike
Motorcycles aren't like cars,
where one size essentially fits all.
You should be able to reach the
ground with both feet when sitting
on your motorcycle. In addition,
you should be able to reach the
controls easily. Be wary of the
power of the bike, as well. It's


important to note that the more
powerful a bike is, the heavier it is.
This is essential knowledge
because you'll need a bike you can
push or lift in the event of an acci-
dent. Also consider the use of the
bike. Dirt bikes, for instance,
should never be taken on the high-
way, and street bikes should not be
used to go off-roading.

Don't rush into things
This is an area that causes lots
of accidents. Similar to a teenager


going to driving school, prospective
bikers should take lessons - many
states mandate courses prior to
licensing. Driving a car and riding a
motorcycle are two very different
things. Just because you can drive
a car does not qualify you to ride a
bike. Do not let passengers ride
with you until you feel entirely com-
fortable driving alone. Driving with
passengers can be extremely diffi-
cult, so learn to walk before you
can run.

From scruffy to chic at Bone Jour


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - This would be a
shaggy dog story, except it
involves two women who have
been keeping dogs sleek and
well groomed for years.
Geri Azary and Hope
Sidebottom have teamed up and
opened Bone Jour, the newest
dog and cat.groomer in town.
Originally from Connecticut,
arriving in Highlands County
via Tampa, Azary comes to the
business with a background as a
veterinarian's technician.
She then managed a puppy
and kitten nursery where she did
all the grooming.
"We have histories," she said


New Business


with a laugh, "and it's all pets.
Our whole career has been ani-
mals.
"I can get a job with a vet, but
I like this better."
Sidebottom has always been a
groomer, except for a short time
when she suffered a -shoulder
injury that forced her to leave
the field.
She hails from Silver Springs,
Md., arriving in Sebring in
1999, when her mother, who had
retired here, needed her help.
Sidebottom initially worked
for a call center here, but as time
passed and her shoulder healed,


she found herself yearning to
work with animals again.
At first she was content to
work with her co-workers' pets,
almost as a hobby, but she did so
well, and felt so good, that she
grabbed a chance at a full-time
job.
It was then that Azary and she
met, working for the same busi-
ness.
But working for a boss wasn't
what either woman wanted
long-term, which is why they
have joined forces and opened
their own shop.
Bone Jour is at 945 Mall Ring
Road, behind Lakeshore Mall.
Call for an appointment at
314-0386.

Veterans' News


Local MOAA

donates to

Four Chaplains
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - During the
regular monthly meeting of
the Veterans Council of
Highlands .County held
Tuesday, April 15, at the
Sebring Elks -Lodge, Roy
Whitton, representing the
local chapter of Military
Officers Association of
America (MOAA) presented a
donation to Joseph A. Dionne,
Director of Veteran Services
for Highlands County, in
memory of Joe's father,
Edward J. Dionne. The dona-
tion is provisional for the Four
Chaplains Memorial Fund at
the Four Chaplaits Chapel,,
located at the Philadelphia
Navy Yard.
The money was donated to
the memory of Edward J.
Dionne, for education schol-
arships. Ed Dionne, a survivor
of the sinking of the U.S.S.
Dorchester, was an accountant
in Lake Placid for many years.
He traveled the nation with
his wife, Pauline, telling the
story of the four chaplains and
their heroism during World
War II.
Four chaplains aboard the
Dorchester perished in that
sinking while giving aid to
their fellow sailors and mili-
tary personnel. The ship had
been struck by enemy torpe-
does while approaching the
coast of Greenland.
The Philadelphia Navy
Chapel was dedicated to
honor those four chaplains,
and a scholarship fund was
established.
The story of the Sinking of
the Dorchester and the four
chaplains represents interfaith
cooperation and unselfish
service. Those chaplains were
Lt. George L. Fox, Methodist;
Lt. Alexander D. Goode,
Jewish; Lt. John P.
Washington, Roman Catholic;
and Lt. Clark V. Poling,
Reformed.

Smith, honored at Sebring

Medal of Honor Park, is

honored in Iraq again


Special to the News-Sun
On April 4, U.S.. soldiers
rendered honors during the
playing of "Taps" at the site
where Sgt. 1st Class Paul R.
Smith died defending his fel-
low soldiers five years ago.
More than 200 people took a
pause from operations to
attend the remembrance cere-
mony for Smith, who earned
the Medal of Honor through
his heroic actions.
Smith, serving with the U.S.
Army B Company, 11th
Engineer Battalion, with the
3rd Infantry Division of the
United States Army ,died in
Operation Iraqi Freedom
while fighting enemy soldiers
near the Baghdad International
Airport.
On April 4, 2003, Smith and
his fellow engineers were con-
structing a prisoner of war
holding area when his task
force was attacked by a com-
pany-sized enemy force.
Smith realized his fellow
soldiers were vulnerable, and
organized a hasty defense con-
sisting of two platoons of sol-
diers, one Bradley fighting
vehicle and three armored-per-
sonnel carriers.
As the fight developed,
according to the Medal of
Honor citation,. Smith braved
hostile enemy fire to engage
the enemy with hand grenades
and anti-tank weapons.
He organized the evacuation
of three wounded soldiers
from an armored personnel
carrier which had been struck
by a rocket propelled grenade
and a 60 mm mortar round.
Fearing the enemy would
overrun their defenses, Smith
moved under enemy fire to
operate a .50 caliber machine
gun mounted on a damaged
armored personnel carrier.


Sgt. 1st Class Paul R. Smith
In total disregard for his
own life, Smith maintained his
exposed position in order to
engage the attacking enemy
force, suffering mortal
injuries.
However, his courageous
actions helped defeat the
enemy attack, and resulted in
more than 50 enemy soldiers
being killed while allowing
the safe withdrawal of numer-
ous wounded soldiers.
The Florida Department of
Veterans' Affairs is sponsoring
the Sgt. 1st Class Paul R.
Smith Memorial Act, which
will allow flexibility and addi-
tional funding to address some
of the needs of Florida's ever-
growing veteran population.
Bill sponsors are Sen. Charlie
Dean under Senate Bill 1462
and Rep. Ron Reagan under
House Bill 861.
Smith was honored posthu-
mously at a ceremony held,in
Sebring at the Medal of Honor
Park as the most recent Florida
resident to receive the Medal
of Honor.
His wife, daughter and
grandchild were present for
the service, which was held on
Pearl Harbor Day (Dec. 7) in
2006.
His monument is the first

New sculptures at SFCC


Courtesy photo'
South Florida Community College's 3-D Design students creat-
-ed sculptures inspired by early 1900s American minimalist
artist David Smith. The sculptures were part of a group project
in which students were given two weeks to research Smith and
his art, sketch and design their own models, and create a
sculpture. Students Sam Foster (left), Eric Jameson, Sarah
Davis, and Kelly Croft created their sculpture named 'Jimmy'
using found materials including a bucket, cement, pipes, card-
board, paper and mache, and black rubberized paint. 'Jimmy'
can be viewed on the east side of the SFCC Art Department in
Avon Park.


Parents of former SFCC auto

collision student donate his tools


Special to the News-Sun
The parents of South Florida
Community College's Auto
Collision Program student, Jesse
Gerard, recently donated his tools
and a toolbox to the program in
his memory after he passed away
in a car accident in January.
"Jesse had just graduated from
the program, and his parents had
just bought him these new tools,"
said Daniel Longenecker, instruc-
tor, Auto Collision/Repair.
"They wanted to give back to
the school."


The tools and the toolbox,
worth over $12,000, will be
housed in the SFCC Autb Body
classroom along with a plaque in
memory of Jesse. Students will be
able to use the tools on occasion.
"We're going to miss Jesse in
the Auto Collision Department.
He was a student we will never
forget," said Longenecker.
"His tools and tool box will be
a reminder of him. It was an honor
to teach Je.sse the auto collision
trade which he loved sO'much."

The happiest


meal of all

Food brings people togeth-
er.
A friend of mine recently
said to me about herself and
her husband, "We're foodies.
We really connect over
food."
In other words, when, they
sit across from each other
enjoying a good meal, it
links them together in a-sat-
isfying way. And loving one
another adds another harmo-
nious dimension.
Food is not only life-sus-
taining, but energizes rela-
tionships and draws families
together. Around the table,
laughter can be heard; stories
told and needs discussed. As
we sit back and enjoy our
favorite edibles and the
resulting satisfied feeling of
fullness, we tend to open up.
We can talk about serious
matters without rushing or
being pulled in more than
one direction.
I have always liked the
story in the Bible about Jesus
feeding the 5,000 with a
child's lunch,. The miracle
itself leaves one speechless.
But it is the generosity of the
child sharing his own 'happy
meal' that tickles my imagi-
nation.
I see a small boy barely
strapping his sandals as he's
making a beeline for the
door - ready to go with
friends and relatives to see
Jesus. But, his mom says,
"Wait. Let me make you a
little supper so you won't be
hungry."
He's almost in too much
of a hurry to wait. But mom
quickly lays a couple of sar-
dines and five small loaves
of bread inside a basket.
Handing it to him, she ruf-
fles his hair and brushes his
cheek with a kiss as he
scoots out the door.
Sitting along the hillside
near to the front where Jesus
and his disciples are, he's
amazed by the thousands
who have joined him and his
group. Jesus' voice pene-
trates his heart, not just his
ears; and, as time goes by,
he's barely aware of his
stomach growling.
But just then a disciple of
Jesus asks if he would share
his lunch. Smiling broadly,
he hands over his 'happy
meal.' And then, the most
amazing thing happens.
As Jesus blesses the food,
the mini happy meal multi-
plies before the boy's eyes
and thousands are fed. The
Scriptures say in.Matthew
14: 20a, "They all ate and
were satisfied."
There's that word again.
Satisfaction.
I can only imagine how
glad our little friend was that
he waited for his mom to
prepare the small meal for
him. What a story he would
tell her when he got home.
Another meal awaits us
with a story to fill eternity.
Imagine how satisfied we
will be at the marriage sup-
per of the Lamb (Jesus
Christ) when believers gather
around his table? That will
be the happiest meal of all.

By PATRICIA C. POND ..I,
News Sun correspondent
SEBRING
C champion racecar
driver Bob
Tullius is well
known to sports
car racing fans and is con-
sidered a hero to Jaguar
enthusiasts. He first came
to Sebring in 1963 to race
and took the checkered
flag many times through-
out the 23 years he drove
at Sebring International
Raceway. He has been a
resident of Sebring for 12
years.
Tullius is a serious col-
lector of historic race cars
and vintage World War II
aircraft, which he now
keeps in the, Group 44 Inc.
hangar at Sebring Airport
just next to the Raceway.
Racing fans, sports car enthusiasts, and
people who love vintage aircraft can view
this unique private collection up close with
no barriers. All that is asked is a contribu-
tion to the Humane Society of Highlands
County. There is a donation box mounted at
the entrance for this purpose.
"I am happy to share my collection with
interested people, but I make it available
mainly to support the Humane Society,"
Tullius said, emphasizing that this is not a
tourist attraction.

A racing legend comes to Sebring
Although Tullius traveled throughout the
United States.and Europe during his 28-year
career, he always had his eye ofi Florida.
"Having spent a lot of time in Florida
during my professional years, I knew that
some day I would like to live here," Tullius
said during a recent conversation in his
office at the Group 44 hangar.
"During 1993-94, I was seriously looking
for a place to build this hangar, and Will
Randall, who was chair- __
man of the Sebring Airport , '
Authority at the time, con- ..
tacted me and offered me
incentives to come to
Sebring. Randall was
instrumental to, my being
here."
By the time of his . ,
retirement in 1990, Tullius
had amassed a hangar full
of vintage aircraft and his-
toric race cars. The col- '4 '
election was stored in a
hanger in Winchester, Va.,
but he wanted a complete
facility that would be
more than a big storage
unit.
The new Group 44
building at the Sebring
Airport was completed in n_
1995, and is comprised of
a spacious hanger plus Bob Tullius with
office space, a lounge racing team became f

The hangar houses Bob
Tullius' private collection
of 10 vintage airplanes and seven race cars in an
immaculately kept, open space. The dazzling col-
ors of the restored airplanes are reflected in the
mirror-like shine on the white floors, doubling the
visual impact.
Tullius learned to fly in Leesburg, Va., and
earned his pilot's license in 1970. He is still fly-
ing to this day and enjoys piloting his Beechcraft
King Air on vacation trips.
Most of the airplanes in the collection are WW
II trainers, the type of aircraft he remembered as a
youngster growing up.
"I was a young boy during the war, and I
always wanted to fly," he said.

er that built Lindberg's 'Spirit of St. Louis.'


"When I became capable of buying a plane, I
bought a Stearman.trainer in 1985," he recalled.
"Then I began thinking about a collection of WW
II trainers, so I bought another, and another -
until I had a hangar full."
His favorite? "The one I am flying."
In addition to the planes, sleek race cars are
parked along the walls of the hangar, rare cars
that have a strong racing history.
"I drove all the cars in here in competition,"
Tullius stated.
There are four retired Group 44 Jaguars that
Bob Tullius had driven during the '60s, '70s and
'80s, in showroom condition. There are also an


. �- - XKE and two Triumphs,
which he had saved from the
- ,' early 1960s. These are the last
'" , . models made of both the TR6
. . and TR8.

Group 44 Racing
' I Group 44 Racing is one of
the oldest and most respected
S, full-time racing teams in the
nation, if not the world. The
R4 team was formed in 1964 by
Tullius, Brian Fuerstenau and
Dick Gilmartin. Based in
. Winchester, Va.; the team of
P engineers, mechanics, drivers
and support staff numbered
45.
"Group 44 Inc. owned all of
the cars we raced," Tullius
explained. "We designed and
built all of our race cars."
In the '60s, Group 44 Inc.
raced Dodge Darts and
Triumphs. They provided Triumph/British
Leyland with many victories and champi-
onships. They then moved into the custom-
designed Jaguars for which they became
famous.
According to an article in Jaguar Clubs of
North America, Group 44 has been involved
in everything from Trans-Am road racing to
Indy cars; from sho-t-track stock cars to
international endurance competition, includ-
ing LeMans.
Tullius brought Jaguar racing cars to fame
' and success in the 1970s with his national
and international wins. In the three seasons
'of 1977, '78 and '81, Bob Tullius drove the
Group 44 Inc. XJ-S in 29 races. He won 18
of the 29, and two Trans Am championships
in 1977 and '78. He was the first recipient of
the, Sir William Lyons International Jaguar
Trophy (www.jcna.com).

From fast cars to fat cats
It doesn't take long for visitors to realize
that a considerable number of sleek, well-fed
cats are part of the Group 44 collection.
Some are "greeters," some are
"watchers," some are "decora-
tions" on display cases and
counters. A few relax on the
airplanes, under which food
bowls and toy mice are scat-
tered.
"I have always been an
animal person. I love all kinds
of animals," Tullius explained
as two cats rubbed on him. "I
wanted a cat for my office, so
I went to the Humane Society
and I got 'Chuck.' Then air-
port security people would
discover strays around the ter-
minal and bring them down
here and we would take them
in and feed them."
Tullius, who currently has
S10 cats living inside the hang-
ber, said he doesn't want to
by PATRICIA POND take any more. He added that
ich the Group 44 he would like to find good
collection in homes for some of those in
u,,e of ht i 10 the hanger, as "most of the
d from the animals I have here are adopt-
d him after a able."
our at LeMans,' Tullius has made the
It was built by Humane Society of Highlands
County his personal cause
because "one gravitates to
something like that when one
has cats. I ask anyone who wants to come look at
the collection to make a donation to the Humane
Society. It all goes to them."
To date, he has donated more than $35,000 to
the Society from his collection box. He also per-
sonally sponsors special projects for the Society
"'outside the box."
The hangar is at 44 Victory Lane, at the
Sebring Airport just two buildings from the air-
port terminal. It is open from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
weekdays. The hangar is unmarke.d but the name
is on a sign alongside the road in front of the
building. Tony Ferrell is the maintenance manager
and is cry knowledgeable about the collection.

Agriculture in the classroom: Ag Literacy Day .5


Recently, staff from the Highlands
Soil and Water Conservation District
visited some of our local schools.
"These Florida Farms!," a book writ-
ten by Gary Seamans and illustrated
by Mike Wright, was read to stu-
dents attending Heartland Christian
School and Cub City Learning
Center on April 10. This year marks
the fifth annual Florida Agriculture
Literacy Day, which is a program by
Florida Agriculture in the Classroom
Inc. (FAITC) and is designed to help
teachers and students gain a better
understanding of Florida agriculture.
The' book was written for young
children at a pre-school and elemen-
tary school level.
Every year, volunteers are asked
to visit local schools around the state
and read a special book written for
FAITC. This year's selection, "These
Florida Farms," is a rhyming book in
which students learn about Florida
agriculture by touring farms around
the state with a safari guide. It is the
hope of FAITC that by helping to
educate the state's future voters and
elected officials about the signifi-
cance of Florida's food and fiber

system, our sun-
shine state will
have a brighter
future and the
agricultural
industry that we
all rely on so
much, will be
more secure.
Clell Ford,
lakes manager,
visited Heartland


WaterSmneU Christian
Corine Burgess School's kinder-
garten, first and
second grade classes. Reading to
about 40 children, the experience
was a positive one and he always
looks forward to Ag Literacy Day
because he enjoys being a part of
this important learning experience.
I selected the two Voluntary Pre-
Kindergarten classes at Cub City
Learning Center were selected by
Corine Burgess, natural resources
specialist, for the reading.
I love spending time with pre-
school aged children. They are so
full of curiosity and they get excited
about the littlest things. I believe it


is so important for everyone, but
especially children to understand
their environment. Since we live in
an agricultural community, they
should know about farms and where
food and ag products come from.
Here are some fun facts about
agricultural products. Share them
with your kids and grandchildren!
* Americans today. consume 17.3
billion quarts of popped popcorn
each year! The average American
eats about 68 quarts!
* The same chemicals that give
tart cherries their color may relieve
pain better than aspirin and ibupro-
fen in humans.
* Lettuce is a member of the sun-
flower family.
* The bright orange color of car-
rots tells you they're an excellent
source of Vitamin A which is impor-
tant for good eyesight, especially at
night. Vitamin A helps your body
fight infection, and keeps your skin
and hair healthy!
* Over 200 million pounds of
blueberries are grown every year in
North America.
* The egg shell may have as

many as 17,000 tiny pores over its
surface. Through them, the egg can
absorb flavors and odors. Storing
them in their cartons helps keep
them fresh!
* Eggs age more in one day at
room temperature than in one week
in the refrigerator.
* Although generally regarded as
a tree, the banana plant is really a
herb. That means it does not have a
woody trunk like a tree. The stalk is
composed of leaf sheaths that over-
lap each other and grow from an
underground stem called a rhizome.


* Apples are a member of the rose
family..
* If you grew 100 apple trees
from the seeds of one tree, they
would all be different. In early colo-
nial times, pumpkins were used as
an ingredient for the crust of pies,
not the filling.
* Bananas are most likely the
first fruit ever to be grown on a
farm.

and'its significance, please visit our

You need to assert yourself in a positive way at work, Taurus


Sunday, May 4, 2008 * 5B


Aries (March 21-april 20) - Aries,
there's so much in store for you this week
that it's simply too much to even wrap
your head around right now. Rest up when
you can and enjoy the moments.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) - Rather
than shrink into the crowd, as you're apt
to do sometimes, Taurus, you need to
assert yourself in a positive way at work.
You'll earn more respect from peers.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) - Gemini,
birthday wishes are right around the cor-
ner and you're gearing up for as much fun
as possible. But remember that you have
to save some attention for serious matters,
too.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) - Cancer,
it's important to have a sense of humor,
but don't make jokes at the expense of
others. A sharp tongue could land you in
trouble on Wednesday.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) - You're
caught off guard this week, Leo, and
that's a good thing. It's not wise to plan
every moment of your life because some-
times the best things can happen unex-


HOROSCOPE


pectedly.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) - What
seems like a great idea at first, Virgo,
quickly dissolves into something you'd
want to avoid in the light of day. Things
aren't always what they seem, so keep an
eye peeled.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Libra, you
expertly turn something that could have
been a blunder into something to your
benefit. Your people skills will help you
to avoid a mishap, but it won't always be
that way.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Slow
down, Scorpio. It's remarkable how many
things you can accomplish if you take
them one at a time. Multitasking is over-
rated, especially this week.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -
Sagittarius, there's much more to being


happy than just putting on a good show
for others. You have to examine your
inner thoughts and feelings and get in tune
with yourself first.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) -
Getting ahead isn't as important as feeling
satisfied and proud with what you are
doing, Capricorn. So don't worry if you
haven't yet caught up with your timeline
for success.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) -
Aquarius, a resolution to get in shape is
met with mixed results from friends and
family. But making any strides to be
healthy is a step in the right direction at
this time.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) - Others
are in awe of your cheery disposition,
Pisces. No one can get you down this
week. And believe that some will certain-
ly try.
Notable birthdays: May 4 - Lance
Bass, singer, 29; May 5 - Danielle Fishel,
actress, 27; May 6 - George Clooney,
actor, 47; May 7 - Tim.Russert, journalist,
58; May 8 - Melissa Gilbert, actress, 44.

The first time I saw blue
plumbago was in Houston. It
was such a beautiful shade of
blue on a great big flowery
stand of bushes. This mid-
westerner was amazed.
Many people say blue is
their favorite color (in fact,
44 percent of Americans sur-
veyed favor blue).
You may want to start
small with a blue corner, a
blue border, or a blue side
yard. Or just go out and blue
your entire landscape,
depending on your own com-
bination of bravery/timidity
or caution/impulsivity.
There are some great rea-
sons for creating a blue gar-
den. Blue is a calming color
and creates a great garden
retreat for reading or relax-
ing. This is the place for your
hammock or lounger. Cool
colors like blue and green
tend to make a small garden
look larger.
Here are some great blue
plants that thrive in South
Florida:
I conducted an informal
survey of gardening friends,
asking them to name their
favorite blue flower. They all
named plumbago. Plumbago
is a beautiful shade of peri-
winkle blue. It can be a large
shrub -if supported, and it
can be kept trimmed as a tall
ground cover. It blooms all
year on new growth, but
grows quickly enough that
cutting does not interfere. It
grows in full sun, is drought
tolerant and attracts butter-
flies. There is a dwarf avail-
able now and I have heard
that there is a new brighter
variety. There is also a white

plumbago variety.
An old-fashioned small
tree that is coming back into
favor is the vitex, or chaste
tree, which loves our climate,
grows to 10-20 feet and
wants full sun and good
drainage. The flowers look a
lot like buddleia or butterfly
bush. You can trim the vitex
to tree form or allow it to
bush.
And speaking of Butterfly
Bush - Buddleia, there are
several blue cultivars of this
plant, which can grow as-tall
as 10 feet. Now there is a
dwarf blue Buddleia also.
Drought tolerant once estab-
lished it is hardy from zones
5 to 10. It is.a full-sun plant
but might benefit from some
afternoon shade in our hot
climate.
Often seen in nurseries in
our area, Blue Daze is a
mounding ground cover with
pretty blue daisy like flowers
all year round. My experi-
ence with blue daze is that it
can use some afternoon shade
during the summer and will
also tolerate partial shade. It
grows about one foot tall and
about two to three feet wide.
Great for a border!
Morning Glory or Ipomoea
is a vine with bright blue
flowers. Easily propagated,
from seed and they also re-
seed. Mine have been coming
back pretty regularly-re-
appearing just when I have
forgottga4bout them. Nicei.,..
surpri,4 They thrive in full


sun and enjoy neglect.
The largest group of blue
flowers belongs to the Salvia
or Sage family. They are
beautiful massed and there is
a variety for every spot and
in every shade of blue.. Some
are even two-tone blue and
.white or blue and black.
Salvia is a tender perennial
and can be grown from seeds
or sets. Heat, sun, and
drought tolerant salvia is a
beautiful garden work horse.
Here are just a few for our
zone: Arizonica grows to 24
inches, azurea to over 48,
cacaliifolia to 36, clevelandii,
24 guaraniti is blue and black
and reaches 48-plus inches
and leucantha blue and White
grows 36 inches tall. A short-
er salvia is sinaloaensis,
which is deep blue and 12
inches tall.
There are many more blue
plants including chicory,
larkspur (for shade), blue
flax, blueboitnet, agapanthus,
hibiscus, blue-eyed grass,
and bluebells. A quick
Internet search will supply
additional suggestions.
I hope you will plant some
blues. Also add some blue
accents. A can of spray paint
can produce a lot of blue pots
or an old blue chair. And,
when you need a change, try
red plants and paint!

tion on our Okeechobee Web

Pulitzer Prize-winner Leonard Pitts delivers message on power of personal change


By SUNNY K. ZENGLER
News-Sun Correspondent
"Turning 50, you lose a lot.
Eyesight, waistline, hair - one
thing I refuse to lose is the
capacity of impatience with
the status quo and the power
of personal change." These
stinging words were passion-
ately flung at the audience at
Bountiful Blessings Church
on Saturday by Pulitzer Prize
winner Leonard Pitts.
PEACE of Highlands
County Inc. (Peace,
Education, Action - a
Community Effort), a small
but mighty group of visionar-
ies, invited Pitts to tell the
local community. "What
Works."
Pitts cited a few examples
of projects from other parts of
the country that have been
successful at keeping kids off
drugs and greatly reduced
teenage pregnancies and juve-
nile delinquencies within
school systems. Pitts dared
the audience to make these
examples the norm and not
the exception.
From previous articles, he
told of Tom Cousins in
Atlanta who tore down the
crumbling projects. Cousins
was told. it was impossible to
reconstruct the area where
there was a $35 million a year
drug market. Cousins razed
and rebuilt the area anyway.
In the ghetto's place,
Cousins built apartments for
poor and middle-class to live
together - inspired commer-
cial businesses to come in,
attracted a new school with
skyrocketing test scores; and,
parents and kids get up and go
to work and school.
There are no indicators
showing who is poor and who
is middle-class. For the first
time, this area has role models
of functional family life.
With the Philadelphia
Youth Build program,
dropouts build the housing.
Their pay averages $10 an
hour; a higher rate than most
of the youth would be able to
achieve elsewhere within the
city.
Fewer than 15 percent get
into trouble again after being
involved in the program.
Similar programs exist in
most large cities and in every
territory of the United States.
A young female participant
in the Youth Build program
told Pitts, "You feel good
when yqu come home dirty,"
and explained how wonderful
it felt to feel competent at
something - electrical wiring,
ripping out and replacing, a
floor, learning a trade for a
lifetime.
Pitts reflected that, "When
it is a local project, it seems to
be a crap shoot if the at-risk
child gets involved in the
right program.
,If you slip through the
cracks, we'll end up paying
insurance premiums for the
damage you do. If we are
going to pay anyway, why
don't we pay on the front end
for the things that work?"
Pitts asked, "What works?
Smaller class, longer school
day, more activity, parental
involvement, we know how to
do it - what is missing is the
vision and the will to make it
happen. More of us need to
reject the preordination of the
status quo, that obstacles
can't be moved."
Inspired by a placard he
saw years ago, Pitts quoted,


"Society becomes great when
old men plant trees in whose
shade they know they will
never sit."
Pitts said that today we sit
in the shade of trees that oth-
ers planted for us: Pearl
Harbor, dogs, hoses and
bombs in Montgomery, Ala.,
St. Augustine; people like
Jackie Robinson, Max
Robinson, and Rosa Parks.
Society today spends too little
time thinking about things to
change our world,,was Pitts'


indictment of today's society.
An interesting distinction
Pitts made in his speech was
that, "We're not talking race -
we're talking difference: who
'they' love. gender, color,
birthplace, social status."
Pitts challenged the audi-
ence, "What would happen if
we all planted a tree and
encouraged others to do the
same?
"You can't know what will
happen until you try. Plant a
tree. It's what works."

Class 4A Regional Baseball Semifinal





Blue Streaks 'I

Advance in state playoffs with 2-0 win over Bartow


By DAN HOEHNE
dianiel.hoehne@newssun.comn
SEBRING - The Blue
Streak baseball motto is 'Do
Work' and it was everyone
doing their fair share of work
in Friday night's 2-0 win over
Bartow in the Class 4A
regional semifinal.
A combination of solid
pitching, .stingy defense, just
enough scoring and two div-
ing, sliding catches in center
field propelled Sebring to a
berth in the regional
finals of the state tour- Seb
nament for the second
year in a row.
Steven Fortner went
the distance for the Ba
Streaks, . scattering
seven hits, striking out |
two and hitting one
batter for the shutout.
"You're always a little
nervous in a game like this,"
Fortner said. "But I know it's
not all on my shoulders, I
don't have to strike everyone
out. When our defense plays
like they did, I just need to
get good location and get
ground balls and pop flys."
The Streaks scored in each
of the first two innings, with
Kyle Long driving in Cody
Higgins, who had doubled, in
the first and Corey Watt com-
ing around to score all the
way from first on a Mike
Jones single and a throwing
error.
Fortner made the runs hold
up, but it was Long saving the
game in the end.
With one on and one out in
the seventh, a hump-back
liner was headed toward the
center field turf, but held up
long enough for Long to make
the sliding catch.
The very next batter sent a
screamer to the right-center
field gap, but there was Long

rt
tr


again, racing, diving, twist-
ing, turning and sliding to
snare the final out.
"The first one, I had one
like that drop on me earlier
this year, so I've been work-
ing on that a lot," Long said.
"The second one, I knew
there were two outs and I just
had to get it.
And so after a 40-year
draught of reaching the final
four of the state tournament,
the Streaks find themselves a
few games away from
ing getting their in back-
to-back seasons - even
with massive turnover
of graduating nine
ow players from last
year's squad.
But it was the tone
set by that team that
helped pave the way for the
unexpected run the current
team is enjoying.
"Last year we had kids who
had been in that situation
before," head coach Hoppy

Residents Compete in Signature


HealthCARE's 2nd Annual Senior Olympics


Special to the News-Sun
The Olympic spirit flowed
through the air at the 2nd
Annual Senior Olympics,
held yesterday in Port
Charlotte.
Olympic athletes from all
over the South Florida region
came to show off their ath-
leticism.
There were various chal-
lenges throughout the day


including, wheelchair racing,
bowling, shot put, basketball,
ADL challenge and horse-
shoes.
All six of the Olympic
teams were ecstatic about
competing against each other
for the gold cup.
Kenilworth Los Bravos
from Sebring salsa'd their
way towards multiple
Medals.


College Park Cougars
from Fort Myers roared into
the courtyard with. determi-
nation and took home many
wins.
Tarpon Tigers were tena-
cious to win and received
victories in many events.
Pinellas Park All Stars
were full of enthusiasm and
had loads of fun.
The exuberant Heritage


Hoopsters were racking up
the points.
Finally, the Port Charlotte
Sharks were on their game
and ready for any and all
competition.
It all came down to a tie
between the Heritage
Hoopsters and the Port
Charlotte Sharks.

I didn't think I was


ready for some football


Spring football?
When I first heard that
last year, I wasn't quite
sure what was being talked
about.
The high school baseball
season was winding down
and the SFCC softball team
had just completed it's
playoff run and I was won-
dering what would be next
on the agenda as far as
where to get stories from.
Then, former Sports
Editor Scott Dressel said,
"spring football is getting
started."
I had never heard that
.before, as we Yanks don't
have that tradition and I
wasn't sure quite what it
meant.
Football in the spring?
That seemed odd and
against everything I grew
up knowing.
That would have been
like "The Dukes of
Hazzard" airing on
Tuesday nights.
It wasn't a full-fledged
season, I found out, this
high school spring football
dealie.
Just about a month's
worth o.f practices culmi-
nating in an exhibition
game - to kind of give the'
program a look-see into
what they had come fall.
The more I thought
about it, the more it made
sense.
And after going through
last year's regular season.


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne
it makes even more sense.
With Avon Park having
new coach Andy Bonjokian
on board, it gives him a
good chance to see what he
has and for the players to
see what they have.
It gives them time to get
to know his system, his
way of running things and
for the combination of
coach and players to
become more familiar, if
not familial.
For Lake Placid, second-
year head man Tim Grant
didn't see much success
with how they did things
last year, so this provides
him the chance to erase Jhe
chalkboard and work out
something new - and to
not have to do it on the fly
just a few weeks before the
season gets underway.
And at Sebring,. which
had a decent enough sea-
son, but is losing some big
talent to graduation this
year, with four players
