Oversight

leaves money

in budget for

Juneteenth
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin .shltt@newssun .corn
SEBRING - In addition to
the proclamation honoring
County Administrator Carl
Cool's 33 years of service to
Highlands County and receiving
word that Cool's replacement,
Michael Wright, accepted the
terms of his contract with an ini-
tial salary of $150,000 per year,
the commissioners approved
$1,000 in funding for the
Juneteenth celebration in
Washington Heights in their
Tuesday meeting.
"It is a day, a week, and in
some areas a month marked with
celebrations, guest speakers,
picnics and family gatherings,"
according to literature at
Juneteenth.com. "It is a time for
reflection and rejoicing. It is a
time for assessment, self-
improvement and for planning
the future."
However, in planning for its
future of declining tax revenue,
the county last year cut or
reduced spending to what it calls
"outside agencies."
Washington Heights'
Juneteenth celebration - which
originated in Texas to commem-
orate the June 19, 1865, enforce-
ment of the Emancipation
Proclamation, about 2 1/2 years
after its effective date - was
one of the events that fell to
budget cuts.
But, explained county public
information officer Gloria
Rybinski, an oversight retained
a $2,000 line item funding
Juneteenth.
The commissioners subse-
quently approved the budget,
which has been in effect since
Oct. 1.
When Robert Saffold, a
Washington Heights resident
an'd active member of the coun-
ty's community, asked for the
money budgeted for Juneteenth,
it wasn't something the county
could give to him because it
wasn't supposed to be in the
budget, Rybinski said Tuesday.
The item was brought before
the commissioners, who
approved $1,000 for distribution
to Juneteenth.

Memorial Day memories


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@ newssun.comi
M memorial Day has become
cluttered over the years.
Too often it's thought
of as the beginning of summer, an
extra day off, or the perfect time
for a mattress sale.
The comforts of peace are too
often taken for granted, the blood
spilled in keeping that peace all
too often forgotten.
But millions of Americans have
given their lives and we owe it to
them to remember their sacrifice
with awe and with gratitude.
Their families and friends


remember them.
They may, like Sue and Mike
Sawyer of Lake Placid, find sol-
ace that their loved one believed
in what he was doing, and now is
with God - but that can't stop
the lonely ache of the empty hole
in their hearts.
Their son, 25-year-old Army
Sgt. Marcus Mathes, was killed by
a mortar attack in Iraq on April
28.
Memories, however, keep
Marcus, and our other lost heroes,
alive on this Earth.

A solemn day of

remembrance
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun .comn
Memorial Day was born
out of the Civil War. It is
meant to be a solemn
tribute to those killed in service to
their country.
Historians haven't traced any
one particular individual responsi-
ble for the idea, although some
credit the town of Waterloo, N.Y.
Most, however, believe it began
almost spontaneously in communi-
ties across the country that wanted
to honor and remember the fallen
heroes from that terrible and costly
war.
This was done primarily by dec-
orating soldiers' graves with flow-
ers, so the day was called
Decoration Day at first.
In 1868, General John Logan,
national commander of the Grand
Army of the Republic, proclaimed
the first official Memorial Day,
which was celebrated on May 30.
In the beginning, the day was
only celebrated in the north.
People refused to celebrate it in
the south. They honored the con-
federate dead on different days.
It wasn't until after World War I
that the nation reunited in respect-
ing its dead war heroes from all
wars, and Memorial Day became
national in scope.
In 1915 Moina Michael, a

Slashed tires at

used car lot leaves

$25,000 in damage

Rufus Brown offers $1,000
reward for arrest of suspects
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING - Somebody slashed 152 tires on
38 of the 52 used cars for sale at Rufus Brown
R&R Elite Motors between Friday and
Saturday.
Leon Watson arrived at the 7200 U.S. 27
North dealership about 7:40 a.m. Saturday,
opened up the office and was moving a
Mitsubishi Lancer when he noticed a flat tire.
"They just stabbed them and went on,"
Watson said, scanning the lot north of his
office.
At first, he thought the Lancer just had a flat.
When he got out and saw another flat, he
hoped it was just pranksters who let out the air.
Of the 38 cars, only three had fewer than four
tires cut.
Watson called Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, which he said collected fingerprints and
other evidence that, would help investigators
identify the vandals.
He suspects there was more than a single per-
petrator.
"It could not be one person because they'd
drop dead from slashing all those tires,"
Watson said.

Elwell's career shifts

gears to Alan Jay

Former Kenilworth Lodge
G.M. now finance manager
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING - The man behind the marquee is
a 6-foot-82-inch sign of the times.
Known as one of the voices of the Heartland
and as the wit behind the tongue-in-cheek mes-
sages .on the south-facing hotel signs on
Lakeview Drive, former Kenilworth Lodge
General Manager Don Elwell had to write him-'
self out of the budget.
"He brought us to a level we've never been at
before," Kenilworth Lodge owner Mark
Stewart said Friday.
But, as are many other business owners in
the community, Stewart tightened his fiscal belt
to account for leaner times.
Adjustments were made throughout the

Mobility Express named Start-Up


Business of the Year by EDC


By MATT MURPHY
matt.mirphy@newssun .com
SEBRING - Ron Layne
spent Friday morning being
"surprised and flattered,
absolutely flattered."
And he had good reason to
be, as Mobility Express, the
company he started in 2006,
was named start-up company
of the year by the Highlands
County Economic
Development Commission.
Layne, president of
Mobility Express, had no idea
what was coming when he
was invited to Friday's break-
fast by EDC Executive
Director Louise England.
"Louise said I needed to be
at the breakfast," Layne said.
"The next thing I know, John
Shoop starts reading off my
bio. I knew I had been put in
for it, but up until that
moment I had no idea. She
kept the secret well."
Layne received a plaque
signifying the award, but he
also got the opportunity to
hear from people who were
served by the company in the
form of letters that were read
aloud at Friday's breakfast.
"It was flattering, I was
overwhelmed," Layne said.
"A lot of the letters said prior
to us going into this business,
the response for this type of


service 'was minimal at best.
The letters the EDC got spoke
better than we can speak."
Mobility Express was the
first licensed transport service
to operate in Highlands
County, and since its found-
ing the company has grown
and attracted competition as
well.
"It's like opening a shoe
store between Kmart and Wal-
Mart," Layne said. "It's been
a fight since we've started. I
think the area was neglected
until people drove by and saw
we had a fleet of vehicles."
Layne said when he first
moved here from Ohio, he
heard stories about emer-
gency room personnel having
to leave patients in hallways
and overflow rooms because
they had no way to . move
them. Mobility Express start-
ed by first moving patients at
night, and later it expanded
into the 24-hour operation it
is today.
"We sweated through four
to five months getting our
name out there, then it started
to grow," Layne said.
Since its founding,
Mobility Express has done
over 10,000 transports in the
county, and Layne hopes to
expand the business even fur-
ther.


Mobility Express has also
benefitted from working with
the Sebring Police
Department to get its employ-
ees pre-qualified to transport
elderly patients. Layne
specifically complimented the
work of Commander Steve
Carr and Vicki Hicks, SPD
administrative secretary, with
helping his company find and
license quality employees.
"If someone is taking an
elderly person home at night,
a lot of times they have to go
in the residence," Layne said.
"We want to have the highest
quality personnel, someone
who isn't a bad guy. Working
with the Sebring Police
Department wasn't necessari-
ly tried before, and it's been
very beneficial to everybody
involved."
Layne is also trying to keep
his company active in the
community in other ways. For
instance, on Tuesday a blood
drive will be held at the com-
pany's offices, 215 U.S. 27
South, from 3-5 p.m.
In the end, Layne said he
was touched and honored by
the EDC award.
"I would like to thank
everyone at the EDC and the
board that reviewed the mate-
rial, and anyone who sent in
recommendations," he said.


'Boone's Creek' author plans to


make Sebring year round home


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun .com
SEBRING - For part-time Sebring resident
and author Kathryn Neff Perry,
Highlands County is more than just the
setting of her latest book.
"It's different with the people in
Highlands County, (I) feel closer to ,
them," said the Ohio native. "I just love *-
everybody there; they have been just
marvelous."
Perry was recently in town for a N
book. signing at the Kenilworth Lodge,
a hotel that also graces the pages of her book.
The protagonist chooses to stay there while
investigating the disappearance of a mother
and her son.
Described as a mystery by Perry, "Boone's
Creek - Almost Home" is the first in the
"Boone's Creek" series.
Her next release in the series will be
"Secrets from the Sea," set in Palm Island,
near Sarasota.
"I've spent time in Palm Island and it's a
great place to get away, but I wouldn't live
there," she said.
Perry has different feelings about Sebring.


After falling in love with the county, she
plans to move here as a full-time resident by
the end of the year.

"The weather, I love the weather,
that goes without saying," she said.
"The palm trees ... driving through the
orange groves, and it doesn't matter
where you are in Highlands County,
you can drive a short distance and find
another lake."
Although she has kept journals off
and on for years, her first chance to see


her writing in print came when she worked as
a freelance reporter for a newspaper from
1984 to 1989.
Now she writes 2,000 words a day, drawing
from her experiences.
"I think the difference between my writing
30 years ago and today (is that) I have more
life experiences," she said. "A professor at
Ohio State told me to write what you know ...
but I didn't know a lot 30 years ago."
Her characters are inspired in part by just
that - conversations she had with friends
over the years.

a Memorial Day program at Lakeview Memorial Gardens in Avon Park. Attendees
were divided into groups andeach group rotated through an American Bald Eagle
story, a chain saw carving demonstration and the Chapel of Peace, which featured a
presentation by US Army Sgt. Jon Graham. In addition to balloons, the event con-
cluded with the release of doves and flags were placed on veterans graves. Keith
Carroll carved an eagle during the event, which was raffled off and won by John

Becker retires as Manna Ministries director


News-Sun staff reports
LAKE PLACID - In
1994, Thelma Becker had a
vision. She felt she was being
called to "feed my sheep."
She prayed and Memorial
United Methodist Church
gave her a house rent free.
From that little house on
Kent Street, Becker's prayers
were answered and her vision
to help the many people in
need began to take shape. Just
two short months later a cor-
poration was formed. By laws
were written making it a sep-
arate ministry from any one
church. The name Manna
Ministries was decided upon
using the symbol of "bread"
in the Bible and "Feed My
Sheep" as the motto. Matthew
25:40 was the scripture base.
Another prayer was answered.
Many men and women
came forward to help. They
enclosed the carport, built
shelves, put in windows and
air conditioners. In 1997 they
needed more room and as
Becker always said, "We.will
pray on it." Money was donat-
ed to buy a shed and a com-
puter. A young woman who


had been helped by Manna
Ministries came forward and
revised the files and pro-
grammed the computer.
Another prayer was answered.
In 1998 Manna Ministries
was given a house full of fur-
niture. The furniture was sold
and the money was used to
buy a much needed second
shed to hold the very success-
ful School Supplies drive.
This collection has continued
to help many needy children
in Lake Placid schools to
receive the tools they need.
Three refrigerators and four
upright freezers were given.
They provided the storage
space needed to purchase
food from Agape Food Bank
in Lakeland. A fourth prayer
was answered.
The sale of several cars and
the furniture from five homes
enabled Manna to renovate its
little house and buy a 12-by-
12-foot shed, making a pri-
vate office for Becker to talk
to people and pray with them.
Becker and others with
Manna Ministries praise the
community of Lake Placid for
its generosity in donating


food, clothing, furniture and
much needed dollars.
In the beginning, Manna
Ministries was open two days
a week with two women.
working per shift. Today,
about 40 volunteers man the
day-to-day operations five
days a week.
Manna Ministries served
more than 3,000 families last
year, including more than
2,100 children.
After 14 years as director
and a guiding force of Manna
Ministries, Becker has decid-
ed to turn it over to someone
else. That person is Marline
Christiansen who has stepped
forward to be the next direc-
tor.
A dinner is being planned
in Becker's honor at 6 p.m.
Tuesday, .June 10, at
Memorial United Methodist
Church.
Becker will remain as a
member of the ministry's
board of directors and will
continue to interact with
Manna's clients.
Anyone interested in
attending the dinner should
call Avis Keen at 465-7475.

Words are not enough


What more can we say
for our nation?


in honor of those who died


In honor of those who were big enough, brave
enough to risk their all in keeping our dreams alive.
And then gave it.
The fact is, we owe these men and women more
than eloquent oration; more than flags snapping in the
breeze; more than parades, poems, or patriotic songs;
more than decorated graves.
We owe it to them to continue the United States of
America; to live up to the ideals of the founding
fathers.
Now more than ever we owe it to those who have
died on our behalf to stay positive and hopeful.
How dare we give in to our fears and give up and
give out in the face of their courage.
They died for us.
Now we must live for them.
OK. Things are tough in the here and now.
But how does paying $4 for a gallon of gasoline
compare with holding the line at Gettysburg, or jump-
ing out of an airplane over enemy territory in World
War II, or going on a midnight patrol in Baghdad?
It doesn't.
We owe it to those who have died for us to stop our
whining and self-pity.
We are alive, after all. And there is work to be done.
We can choose to reach out, set goals and work
together to reach them.
We can choose to believe we'll'pass on a better
world and a stronger America to our children, as those
who have died passed on to us.
We owe it to them to find a way to meet our chal-
lenges as successfully as they met theirs.
We cannot do less. We should try to do better.
So what more can.we say to those who have fallen?
We will not fail you.
We will overcome our differences.
We will fulfill the great, fair-minded, open-hearted
promise that is the United States of America.
We will not let you die in vain.

Veterans are members
of greatest fraternity
Editor:
On Memorial Day we pay tribute to those who
have fallen in defense of our nation.
As we remember, let's not forget the many '
among us still alive who have worn the uniform.
We know that even though they may throw away
the uniform, it is still on them every step of their
life.
These are the burdens of the job.
A veteran, whether active duty, retired, national
guard or reserve is someone who, at one point in
their life, wrote a blank check made payable to
"The United States of America," for an amount up
to and including their life. They are members of
the greatest fraternity the world has ever known.
God has said he will bless all those willing to give
their life for another.

Graduation, California style
Editor:
I've been to a dozen of graduation ceremonies in
my line of work, but I have never been to one like
California State University at Fullerton, 5,000
graduates in two programs: an "exercise" and a
commencement. It took about an hour for the
whole group, graduates and faculty, to parade into
place.
We left Aliso Viedo at 6:30 a.m. to arrive at
California State University by 7:30 a.m., to find a
seat for the 8 a.m. program; about 3,000 were
already there. The "exercise" started after 9 a.m.
and was o~cr about 10:30 a.m. for a half-hour
break.
By the time the commencement started, it was
90 degrees and HOT! About halfway through, the
first groups receiving their certificates were


excused. Our graduate, sitting in the first row, dis-
covered about 11:30 a.m. her group behind her was
gone. There was general commotion from then on.
We finally escaped the parking lot about 1 p.m.
,They had three levels of cum laude: sub, magna
and summa (3.7, 3.8 and 3.9-plus GPA "Grade
Point Average") for 7-8 different academic schools
or divisions. Our graduate had only 3.8. This was
the 50th anniversary for California State University
and second largest graduation, 10,000 graduates
and undergraduates in ceremonies Friday, Saturday
and Sunday. The honors, awards, grants and schol-
arships were impressive. One graduate student
received a $1 million grant in communication
research. One alumnus donated $50 million for a
high tech center.
Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich gave an
interesting address, presenting his own personal
experiences over. a 40-year period to make several
points: a. you never know when a specific incident
or person will significantly affect your career; b.
you never know when a bad experience will
become a blessing in disguise; c. you have to know
who you are, don't focus on others, don't let others
influence your life, determine your own, after all
you have to live with it.
Our graduate, my grandniece, took 10 years to
get her degree. Like millions of others, she had to
support herself from age 17 and struggle through
the maze of academic requirement changes, plus
two changes in her major to complete those
requirements. This, indeed, was an auspicious
event among the many I have witnessed.
I wonder if the people of California are paying
attention to what Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is
doing to their economy. For the second time in
three years, he has borrowed money to "fix" the
deficit out there. This time he is borrowing on lot-
tery proceeds that haven't materialized yet!
He didn't even have to run for governor; he was
drafted. The media and California pundits


smoothed the way. He merely walked into office,
the hero of the day. At that time, to solve the
deficit, he borrowed some $30 million (or was it
billion?). He simply followed the example of his
hero, Ronald Reagan.
Tragically, today the price paid is the layoff of
teachers and other professionals who were already
underpaid because of gross management, plus the
school kids who may not have a school to go to.
Yet, they do nothing about the illegals who make
up 25 percent of the school population. His type
* of conservation is not what the people of
California need. However, they voted for him
twice; so they got what they wanted?

Bands help with Hammock projects
Editor:
The Friends of Highlands Hammock State Park
(CSO Citizen Support Organization) has just com-
pleted it 2007-2008 Music in the Park series with
its California Toe Jam concert last Saturday night.
We were able to raise money for numerous park
projects because of the tremendous community
support of these low-cost family events.
We would like to thank the entertainers:
California Toe Jam (two times), Emanno, Back
Porch Revival, Suzanne and Jim, and Groovus who
provided the sounds that helped us raise money for
the Highlands Hammock State Park.
We are busy booking the groups for the 2008-
2009 series and expect to continue the improve-
ment of this quality event. Thanks to all who have
joined us in this effort.

Cruising is still

on the to-do list

If you're like me, you have in
your head or written down
somewhere a "List of Things
I'm Going To Do Someday." It
has things on it that you know
you can't do at the moment but
hope to accomplish sometime in
the future.
I don't know what's on your
list. Mine has several things-on
it. "Getting a novel published"
is one. "Flying first class just
once" was on it until I got the
chance to actually do it one
time in my travels. Now "flying
first class again" is on the list,
assuming it won't require a sec-
ond mortgage on the house to
pull it off.
One thing Don and I both had
on the list was "go on a cruise."
We have, in the past, done the
SeaEscape day cruises, which
means the boat goes out a ways
(far enough to allow people to
gamble, which is very popular
on these things), serves great
food and has some shows to
watch, and then comes back.
We enjoyed those day cruises
(not the gambling part, which
Don and I stay away from). But
they hardly count as a real
cruise, as in go away for sever-
al days. We thought that would
be fun to do, if we could ever
pull it off.
For a long time, we couldn't.
Like a lot of other people, we
had priorities and responsibili-
ties and things like cruises were
put off for "later," that indefi-
nite time we tend to place a lot
of things. Sadly, "later" some-
times becomes "never."
However, not in this case.
This year Don and I celebrated
our 25th wedding anniversary.
We decided'that getting to that
number of years and still loving
each other called for something
special. So we decided it was
finally time to go on a cruise.
We did our research and set-
tled on a Carnival cruise to the
Bahamas. Being our first cruise,
we of course overpacked. But at
least we didn't forget anything
important.
Getting to the cruise ship
required a drive to Miami,
which left us nicely tense by
the time we got to the dock. By
Saturday we were in the
Bahamas, where we discovered
our cell phones did not work.
This might be alarming for
some people, but I confess here
and now the thought that people
couldn't call us was a pleasant
one.
There isn't room in the col-
umn to do a blow-by-blow
description of the cruise, so
let's go with a Good Things and
Bad Things breakdown:
Good Things:
Food. The food is fantastic. If
you really wanted to, you could
spend an entire cruise doing
nothing but eating. Since I'm
trying to get my weight down, I
didn't eat all the time. I did,
however, allow some indul-
gences. The chefs knew how to
do chocolate!
Things to Do: We took a
lovely tour of Nassau, which
included a pirate museum. I
found a cup in the gift shop that
said, "Dead til I gets me cof-
fee." Some souvenirs just have
to be bought.
Service: A cruise ship crew
will spoil you if you. give them
half a chance. We gave them
more than half.
Bad Things:
At the end of the cruise,
when you have to re-enter the
real world, they make you do it
at a horribly early hour. Have I
said I'm not a morning person?
I wanted to be eased back to
reality, not thrust into it half


asleep.
In all it was a lovely time,
and I'd recommend it to anyone
who has it on their list. By the
way, new item on my things to
do someday list? "Go on anoth-
er cruise." Let's hope "later" is
sometime soon.

SEBRING - For local
singer Tiffany Elliot, a career
in country music could be just
a few months away.
The Lake Placid native has
performed on the local stage
for years, lending her voice to
-the Highlands Little Theater
and Heartland Idol.
She has garnered attention
in both, winning best actress
from the HLT for her portray-
al of Eliza Doolittle in "My
Fair Lady" and first runner up
in the original Idol competi-
tion.
Now her eyes are fixed on
an Orlando competition, but
she needs the support of the
community.
"Give me a chance to go to
the next level, I just want the
chance," she said. "I won't let
anybody down, I'll do as best
as I can and see where it takes
me."
Elliot is talking about the
2008 Colgate Country
Showdown, a competition
that has seen entries from the
likes of Billy Ray Cyrus and
Lee Ann Rhymes.
"They all entered the con-
test, (it's) one of the first
entries they made," said
Holly Elliot, Tiffany's moth-
er. "It's a stepping stone to
being seen and discovered -
it opens doors for them."
The younger Elliot is one
of 15 finalists from more than
100 entrants attending the
open call.
Of the 15, five were auto-
matically entered into the
next round, while 10 others,
including Elliot, were put on
a Web site.
The five with the most
votes online will advance to
compete with the next field of
10.
As a past Heartland Idol
contestant, Elliot compared
the experience to the original
Fox show.


"It was set up kind of like
American Idol," she said.
"Walk in, get a number, go in
and audition."
The different levels of
competition eventually lead
to Nashville, home to the
Country Music Hall of Fame,
and a $100,000 prize for the
winner.
"Right now I'm trying to
really pursue a career in
music, I'm auditioning as
much as I can no matter
where it brings me," she said.
"I'm trying to get out there
and see what happens."
To support Elliot's efforts
to reach the next level of the
competition, visit the Web
site at www.k92.com, and
click on 'listen, vote here'
under the headline 'K92FM
Colgate Country Showdown.'
Once there, voters can lis-


ten to an audio clip of Elliot
singing "There will come a
Day" by Faith Hill.
Elliot's name and clip are
the last on the list.
To vote for her, click her
name, found on the right side
of the page, then follow that
to a link titled 'vote here.'
Elliot is the first name on
the voting page, and as of
Friday evening was in first
place with 25 percent of the
vote, followed by contestants
with 18 and 12 percent.
"I want to thank everyone
for their support," she said.
"If I do get to the next round
it will bring me to Wet and
Wild on June 28, so if anyone
wants to come and have fun
and show support, please
come."
Voting closes on at 5 p.m.
Thursday.

mander of VFW Post 4300 in
Sebring, was asked who he
thought of on Memorial Day,
he answered without hesita-
tion.
"My father," he said. "His
name was Richard Nelson
Ryon. He died Christmas Day
during the Battle of the Bulge
in 1944. He was a bazooka
man, and left four children
behind; the youngest one he
only saw once. "
Bob Ryon explained that
his father had been buried in
Luxembourg, but after the war
under a program offered
by the Pentagon to the spous-
es of veterans buried overseas
- his body was returned to
the United States for burial at
home.
"I was about 5 at the time
of the funeral," Ryon said,
"and I remember the 21-gun
salute and the military burial.
It is why I'm part of an honor
guard today."

Private Pain
Not every veteran was
ready to open up.
One man, a member of the
honor guard and an Air Force
veteran, had to clench his
hands at one point and fight
back tears as he remembered
moments of his past in Korea,
and friends long dead.
He finally shook his head
apologetically. "I'm sorry,
no," he almost whispered
when asked if he had a story
to tell.
Many of the men were
guarded, but it was clear they
were guarded in a way only
meant to protect the people
remembered.
Jack Devane, a member of
American Legion Post 25 in
Lake Placid and a veteran of
Vietnam, reluctantly spoke of
being assigned to the 1st Air
Cavalry. He arrived at the
division in 1968, along with
another new recruit named
Cookie Canales, whom he had
never met before.
Because they arrived
together they formed a bond.
Canales, of Mexican descent,
was from San Antonio.
He was killed two months
later by sniper fire.
"His narfie has always been
a part of my memory on
Memorial Day," Devane said
quietly, looking away.

Generations Of
Sacrifice
At VFW Post 9853 in Avon
Park, it isn't until after Andre
Hartzell has spoken with
pride about his father and
grandfather that he speaks
about himself - and then
only because his friends tease
him into it.
First, he had pointed out he
is simply the third Hartzell to
answer his country's call.
His father, Arthur Hartzell,
served as a captain on General
John "Black Jack" Pershing's
staff during World War I. He
is always the first person
Andre thinks of as a hero.
"My father was in intelli-
gence," he says.
"Unfortunately, he died in
December of 1940 or I'm sure
he would have worked in
intelligence during World War
II."
Then he talks about his
grandfather, Clinton Hartzell,
who joined the Union Army
as a 15-year-old drummer boy
in the Civil War. He was capr


tured and spent two years in
the dreaded Andersonville
prisoner of war camp. Clinton
Hartzell survived, but
emerged from the camp with

Clinton Hartzell (left) was an intelligence officer serving on General John Pershing's staff
during World War I. His father had been a teen-age drummer in the Civil War, and his son,
Andre Hartzell (right), was awarded a Silver Star and three Purple Hearts with the 187th
Airbourne Regimental Combat Team during the Korean War.


tuberculosis.
It isn't until Andre Hartzell
begins to talk about his own
experience, that the horror of
war bleeds through.
Himself a combat veteran
of Korea with three Purple
Hearts and a Silver Star, he
couldn't remember any partic-
ular fellow soldier.
But that is because of the
nature of his experience.
"The movement was so
fast," he said, "and we were
losing so many people; it was
impossible to keep up.
"I got into Korea in April
of 1951, in a situation on a
spearhead with tanks. In the
end we lost all but 17 men out
of 200. And 1 hate to say it,
but I joined the outfit as an E-
3 (a private first class), and in


two and a half months I was
serving in the capacity of an
E-7 (master sergeant)."
However, Hartzell, who
also remembers when 30
degrees Fahrenheit inside a
bunker seemed warm com-
pared to the 50-below-zero
temperature outside, doesn't
believe he is a hero.
"I did my job as I saw it,
and as I was given it to do,"
he said quietly.

Finally Home
Like Hartzell, Lou Werk,
the second vice commander of
American Legion Post 25, is
also a veteran of the Korean
War.
And like Hartzell, he can-.
not remember any one person
in particular.


That is because Werk
served as navy corpsman in
San Diego, on the wards
where the returning wounded
were treated and then shipped
out to specialty medical cen-
ters or hospitals closer to
home.
"The only thing I saw was
blood," Werk said. "I saw
hundreds of guys and I can't
remember a day without
blood."
He sighs at the memory, sit-
ting back in a folding chair in
the Post's business office.
Doris Rash, the Auxiliary's
secretary, has been listening
to Werk. "So many heroes
who don't have faces," she
says.
All the more reason to
remember.


DAY
Continued from 1A
teacher from Good Hope, Ga.,
was the first person to pro-
mote wearing red poppies on
Memorial Day. The idea
caught on, not just here but
around the world.
In 1922, the VFW was the
first organization to nationally
sell poppies, the proceeds
going to help veterans.
Observance of Memorial
Day shifted to the last
Monday in May when
Congress enacted the National
Holiday Act of 1971, creating
three-day weekends for feder-
al holidays.
Here in Highlands County,
Memorial Day has always
been respected and honored.
These feelings are reflected
in a poem written by Kevin
Smart, who is retired from the
Air Force. Smart dedicated
the poem to his father, John
Smart, who, during the
Korean War, also served in
the Air Force.
John Smart survives, but as
the head of the local VFW
Honor Guard he has con-
tributed to many services for
the fallen. His son's poem
speaks to them.

His Time Of Peace Has Come

Lay the man gently down
Down down down
Down down down
Gently lay him down
Into the bosom of the earth

In times long past his body
strong
He served a heart-felt cause


Chest out with pride he sacri-
ficed
Sacrificed sacrificed
So, gently lay him down

With stars in his eyes he stood,
the test
White-striped with pure resolve
Red-striped with honor
Brothers lost Brothers lost
Be gentle now

Times of war Times of peace
Times of war Times of peace
Pride Resolve Honor
Times of peace

So, lay the man gently down
Six feet down down down
In times of war lay him down
His time of peace has come
So gently now, gently,
Gently lay him down

ELWELL
Continued from 1A
hotel's operations.
In the end, it was a finan-
cial decision to eliminate
Elwell's position. Stewart
said.
"Don is a friend," he said.
"He's an awesome guy to be
around."
Sitting in his glass-wall
enclosed office at the Alan
Jay Nissan dealership Friday
morning, Elwell discussed the
challenges of learning a new
job in a career field far
removed from hospitality.
"This county has been very,
very nice to me." he said,
while a fax machine spat
paper onto the floor behind
him.
Because the community
took him in and because of his
children and stepchildren,
Elwell didn't want to take his
job search on the road.
Though he had a prospect
in the Tampa area, he decided
to make "a total shift in
gears" (with Elwell, the puns
are always intentional), leav-'
ing the hotel business to avoid
saying goodbye to Highlands
County.
The shift wasn't automatic.
Stewart gave him most of
April to find a new job. The
decision to eliminate Elwell
was made in March, after a
relatively slow January-to-
March tourist season failed to
produce anticipated revenue.
"Mark. was nice enough to
say, 'I hate doing this,'"
Elwell said. "It was a business,
decision and I understood."
Elwell landed the business
and finance manager position
at the Nissan dealership.
"To start in finance, I guess
that's a little bit unusual," he
said, explaining Alan Jay
Wildstein took a "leap of
faith" in hiring him for a posi-
tion employees usually work
toward from within.
Elwell's boss, Joel
Timmons, general sales man-
ager, has worked in every
aspect of the business, from
detailing cars when he was 14
-years old to managing a deal-
ership.
Elwell's learning curve has
been huge. He spent the pre-
vious 15 years in hospitality.
Week one was "intensive"
training at Deerfield Beach,
which included day-long
classes followed by three
hours of homework.
"There's a whole lot of
ethics training," Elwell said,


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
Don Elwell (from left), Carlos Fuentes and Joel Timmons are
the fresh faces at Alan Jay Nissan. 'We're putting fresh faces
in here and getting it up and running and making it part of
the community,' Timmons, the general sales manager, said,
explaining most of his staff are new, if only transferred from
another dealership in the Alan Jay Automotive Network.


laughing at the jokes writing
themselves in his head.
A 70 percent score was
required to pass ethics. Elwell
was pleased to reveal he
scored 95.
"There's a lot of compli-
ance and it's a lot more
involved than I thought it
would be," he said of the
voluminous paperwork com-
pared to his previous job.
"But, the bottom line is that
it's about people and that's
what I'm good at."
Elwell is happy to be gain-
fully employed within the
county, but it came at a price.
His schedule keeps him at
work at least 55 hours
between Monday and Friday,
then he works most Saturdays
and Sundays, a typical sched-
ule for management, he said.
People accustomed to see-
ing Elwell emceeing various
events will see fewer appear-
ances.
And there's the obvious
stress on family commitments
and quality time together.
"That is going to be a chal-
lenge," he said, explaining
that Wildstein supports his
public presence, but job
responsibilities may preclude
it.
Wildstein even gave Elwell
the green light to run for
county commissioner.
Elwell recently moved
from Commission Chairman
Edgar Stokes' district to
Commissioner C. Guy
Maxcy's, but the demands of
the job prevent Elwell from
being a serious contender.
"I don't know that Guy
really had anything to worry


Salutes Veterans license plates help

support Florida VA nursing homes


about," Elwell said, bowing
out of a race he never entered.
"He probably didn't see me as
a threat."
Not running is the sole
regret Elwell harbors in how
this played out.
Having lived here 4%2 years
and becoming a part of the
community instead of'just liv-
ing in it, Elwell wanted to
"give back."
"One of my goals was to
run for county commission-
er," he said, not ruling out a
future bid for office.
In the meantime, he'll
lobby Wildstein for a three-
line, electronic sign.
"Of course, he'll have to
find somebody to do that,"
Elwell said, joking about who
might step up to the challenge
of delivering smiles via the
proposed sign.
Up until May 17, Elwell
was writing the messages that
greet northbound motorists
passing by Kenilworth Lodge.
Regina Howard assumed
the responsibility and has big
shoes to fill (Elwell wears a
size 14EEE).
"They probably won't be as
topical as I was," Elwell said,
anticipating the same tradi-
tion of recognizing off-the-
wall holidays but not expect-
ing the same fun-poking at
local issues of the moment.

"I incorporate two or three
friends into a character in my
book, that's the way charac-
ters have come about," she
said. "Through life experi-
ences."
While talking about her
love of Sebring, she brought
up the downtown area and the
recent closing of businesses


on The Circle.
"I want to do some type of
seminar and speaking
engagements," on The Circle,
she said. "If I can do it
through my books ... bring
business back to Sebring."
The Kenilworth Lodge

successful so far, with Perry

Just in time for Memorial Day, Sunset


Grille brings back beach-side dining


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - When Sebring residents think of
taking lunch on the beach, owners of the Sunset
Grille want the restaurant on the shore of Lake
Jackson to be the first thing to pop into their heads.
"We will serve you right up to the dirt," said
manager Mark Biermann. "There is no other place
around here that does this kind of theme."
Patrons can come to their restaurant and enjoy
the "beachy" atmosphere without having to shell
out gas money to get to the coast, he said.
"With the price of everything, I wouldn't spend


$100 to get to the coast," said owner George
Edison.
Edison said he plans on keeping the upscale din-
ing the same on the inside while expanding busi-
ness outside to the beach. *
A volleyball net and competition will add to the
ambiance, and boaters are welcome to pull up from
the lake instead of traveling by car.
"We want to make it a fun. place for people to
come," Biermann said.

It happened fast. Our

the brakes, probably
because of the steep

half of Jeep Cherokee bore
down on the right front tire as it
bit the pavement and slung us
into the oncoming lane. We had
forward visibility of about 20
yards because of the rock wall
on the inside of the curve.
Luckily, no vehicle was coming.
Dave overcorrected a few times
in a diminishing series of fish-
tails until the car slowed and
came under control.
All of this probably took less
than five seconds. Neither of us
spoke for 10 more while I tried
to swallow my heart and
breathe.
"Dave, I thought you knew
what to do if you got a tire off
the edge of the road!" I
exclaimed. Actually there were
a few more words in that sen-
tence, but this is a family news-
paper. Then I told him that pri-
ority one in that situation is not
to overreact, but to let the vehi-
cle gradually slow. You make
sure you have it under control,
then slowly bring the errant
front wheel back on the road.
No hard braking or wheel-whip-


ping unless it's
absolutely necessary to
avoid colliding with an
object on the shoulder.
I've drifted onto the
shoulder several times
before and this proce-
dure works like a
charm.
Silence from Dave.
He is a very proud
individual and I knew
better than to keep
flogging this driving


error of his.
It's not necessary to be on a
mountain road to have a tragic
end to what should have been a
minor correction. I am con-
vinced that ignorance of this
basic driving technique is the
cause or an important contribut-
ing cause of many of the deadly
accidents we are so used to
hearing about. Cell phone use,
driving at excessive speed and
driver impairment are known
factors in the loss of control
behind many such wrecks, and
these things are to be deplored.
I can't help wondering, though,
how many of these situations
could have resulted in a recov-
ery if the driver was aware of
the unforgiving physics
involved in braking and steering
while changing from one driv-
ing surface to another.
This is a business column,
not a driving column, but I had
to draw this example out a bit in
order to make a few points.
First, there are often multiple

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Each year
thousands of people come to
Florida Hospital Heartland
Division in Sebring, Lake
Placid and Wauchula. Many
visit at the most vulnerable
points in their lives. So
Florida Hospital celebrates
nurses each year at this time.
This year each registered
nurse and licensed practical
nurse was given a special-
edition pair of Nike Shox
(valued at $120 pair) as a
"thank you" for their loyalty,
hard work and commitment to
patients.
These uniquely-designed
1908 Edition Shox are made
only for Florida Hospital by
Nike and the styles change
annually for both men and
women. The partnership
began in 2005,when a Florida
Hospital nurse persistently


approached Nike about mak-
ing comfortable nursing
shoes. Instead, Nike suggest-
ed walking/running shoes
with a distinctive design only
available to Florida Hospital
staff members. So far more
than 40,000 pairs of 1908
Edition Shox have been dis-
tributed.
The 1908 Edition name
was chosen to honor Dr.
Lydia Parmele who opened
the first Flbrida Hospital
(known as the Florida
Sanitarium) in Orlando on
Lake Estelle through commu-
nity donations-in 1908. Since
that time, Florida Hospital
Heartland Division is part of
a network of 17 Florida
Hospitals in the state. Florida
Hospital Heartland Division
is proud to be celebrating 60
years in Highlands County.

possible to deal with all the
causes behind a developing
crisis, and there may be just
one cause you can actually
do something about in the

that needs to be done to buy
some time to deal with the
big picture.
So don't overreact.
Concentrate on making sure
you are under control.
The last point I would
make about this has to do
with competence. Are you
schooled in the basics of
operating a business? Even if
you are, you know you have
strong points and weak
points, so the question
becomes do you have
employees or others who can
complement your knowledge
and skills? If so, do you lis-

Robert Talley home gets new fence


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - The home
of Robert Talley and Judy
McCarter on South Verona
Avenue was the recent scene
of a new fence installation,
compliments of Rebuilding
Together Highlands County
Inc.
Talley is a blind person
who is cared for by McCarter.
Larry Talley, Talley's brother,

Florida Medal of
Honor recipient
honored by
newest Florida VA
Nursing Home
Special to the News-Sun
ST. AUGUSTINE - One
of the Florida recipients of
the Medal of Honor recog-
nized in the Highlands
County Medal of Honor Park
near the Veteran Services
Office will also be honored
by having a Florida State VA
nursing home to be named for
him. The nursing home will
be at 4650 State Route 16, St.
Augustine, FL 32092. The
groundbreaking ceremony is
planned for 10 a.m. Saturday,
June 28, in St. Johns County.
LeRoy Collins Jr.
announced to the Florida
Cabinet on May 13 that the
newest state veterans' nursing
home will bear the name of
Medal of Honor recipient
Clyde E. Lassen.
The Clyde E. Lassen State
Veterans' Nursing Home, a
120-bed skilled nursing facil-
ity, will be the first Florida
veterans' home to be named
after a U.S. Navy veteran. It
is considered by many to be
an appropriate naming, as
there are two large naval
installations nearby, and
many of Lassen's family are
still in the area.
S Clyde E. Lassen was
awarded the Medal of Honor
for his heroic actions on June
19, 1968, in the Republic of
Vietnam. Lassen, United
States Navy, was a pilot of a
search and rescue helicopter
attached to the Helicopter
Support Squadron 7, during
operations against enemy
forces in 'North Vietnam.
Despite enemy fire, limited
visibility, rugged terrain and
several ineffective landings,
Lassen successfully rescued
two downed aviators. While
en route to the USS Jouett, he
encountered and evaded addi-
tional hostile anti-aircraft
fire. With a severely damaged
aircraft, and only a few min-
utes of flight fuel remaining,
he was able to safely land
aboard the USS Jouett.
Lassen, born in Fort Myers,
entered the service from
Jacksonville.
The Florida Department of
Veterans' Affairs is a state
agency responsible for assist-
ing, without charge to the
claimant, Florida's veterans,
their families and survivors in
improving their health and
ecc'nomic well-being through
quality benefit information,
advocacy, education and
long-term health services.
The FDVA operates five
veterans' nursing homes and
one assisted living facility
through the State Veterans'
Homes Program. For more
information on veterans
homes in Florida, contact the
Highlands County Veteran
Services Office, 402-6623, or
visit the FDVA Web site,

tion were volunteers
Sebastian Hernandez, Bruno
Litwinski and Paul Devlin,
president of Rebuilding
Together's local affiliate.
Following the pouring of
concrete for the stanchions,
the actual -fencing is being
completed, by volunteers from
The Youth Academy at Care
Lane.
Devlin said, "This is anoth-


er in a long list of Rebuilding
Together projects in the years
2007 and 2008 made possible
by volunteers of all ages, and
from all parts of our county. It
is heart warming to see a
smile on the face of a man
like Mr. Talley who requires
the help of his fellow citizens
to live comfortably."
Rebuilding Together is the
nation's largest volunteer
home rehabilitation organiza-


tion dedicated to keeping the
homes of needy people safe,
dry and comfortable. In
Highlands County alone it has
served the needs of low
income, disabled and elderly
persons with a variety of such
upgrades as roofing, painting
and wheelchair ramps.

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop

Will we

remember?

The flags will be flying.
The air will be hinting at
summer ... while air-condi-
tioned stores having special
sales tempt us. Families and,
friends will fire up barbecue
grills, kick back and relax.
That's what we're sup-
posed to do on Memorial
Day weekend. Right?
Sure. Fly those flags.
Think about summer just
around the corner. Take
advantage of a special deal
on something you need or
have been saving for. And
enjoy some time away from
busy-ness to be with family
and friends around a good
old-fashioned barbecue.
So, then, what seems to
be the problem?
Perhaps it's a bit of mem-
ory loss. Not a 'senior
moment.' Rather, the kind
that obscures what this day
is all about in the first
place.
It is a day for remember-
ing.
Throughout all the wars,
many in our armed forces
paid the ultimate price for
our freedom. Those who
gave their lives should be
remembered.
I am blessed to still have
my dad with me. He is a
Pearl Harbor survivor. But
he has never forgotten what
he saw and experienced;
and, the many that didn't
live to tell about it. His
scrapbook of those days
tells a story of those he will
always remember.
Sept. 11, 2001 is the clos-
est we have come to under-
standing such devastation.
And I pray that we will
remember for. the sake of
those lost to us, and affect
the decisions we'll make
when we vote.
When we don't remem-
ber, our perspective changes
and we have a tendency to
go about our lives like noth-
ing ever happened. This is
dangerous because it makes
us vulnerable all dyver again.
So, in our celebrating,
will we remember?
The same is true spiritu-
ally.
God reached out to us by
sending his Son to die and
offer his free gift of salva-
tion. Think about it; but
then connect mind and heart
. to respond and receive that
gift personally. Stay close
to the Lord through the
Bible, prayer and Christian
fellowship. Grow in faith
by daily applying godly
principles to every decision.
If we don't deliberately
choose to mature in our
faith, memory loss may
occur. That is, we may
begin to take for granted the
high cost Jesus Christ paid
for our freedom from sin's
consequences - causing us
to become vulnerable to
Satan's attacks.
That is why during the
last Passover meal Jesus
shared with his disciples, he
introduced a new covenant
that would memorialize his
death. And he told them in
Luke 22: 19b,NIV,
"Do this in remembrance
of me."
Will we remember?
Selah

McCall to get honorary


doctorate degree today


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - During serv-
ices today at First Baptist
Church, James "Jay" McCall
will be presented one of the
highest honors granted from
an academic institution.
It will be the second time
he will receive the Honorary
Doctorate of Christian
Letters. Today's ceremony
will be a re-enactment of last
week's presentation made
during the spring 2008 gradu-
ation ceremony at The Baptist
College of Florida in
Graceville.
McCall is pastor emeritus
at First Baptist Church and a
BCF alumni.
Peter L. Chamberlain, pres-
ident of B. R. Chamberlain &
Sons Inc., also received an
and Honorary Doctorate of
Christian Letters from the
college.
According to BCF
President Thomas A.
Kinchen, McCall is his ideal
image of a Baptist -preacher
and pastor. "He has the heart
of a kind pastor, the fervor of
an ardent evangelist, and the
mind of a keen student of the
word of our Lord," Kinchen'
said.


The News-Sun � www.newssun.com


mi iw


Kinchen told BCF gradu-
ates how "McCall is the very
finest example of what an
alum of The Baptist College
of Florida should be. My
fondest wish would be that
each of the graduates of The
Baptist College of Florida
would serve our Lord with the
boldness, grace and dignity
displayed by Jay McCall."
McCall was caught off
guard a month ago when he
received a phone call from
Kinchen informing him of the
college's decision to present
him with this honor. "It really
surprised me. I had no idea
that this was going to happen.
I am humbled by it and hon-
ored by it. I am really flat-
tered," he said.
McCall has been at the
local congregation for the
past 25 years. Having the
presentation re-enacted in
front of friends and family is
quite meaningful to him. "I
think people will really enjoy
it and enjoy being a part of
it," he said.
Kinchen was the keynote
speaker for last week's gradu-
ation ceremony where 64 stu-
dents received degrees in the
college's Assembly Center,


Counseling, Christian
Education, Christian Studies,
Church Music, Contemporary
Worship Ministry,
Elementary Education,
Leadership, Ministry,
Missions, Theology, Music
Education and Bachelor of
Science in Biblical Studies.

service that EMS provides to
countless patients every day,
often under incredibly chal-
lenging circumstances.
EMS staff members are
dedicated to saving lives and
limiting suffering, even if that
requires personal sacrifice


and risk. They are selfless
professionals who put their
own life on hold, day after

"thank you."


Special to the News-Sun
Memorial Day weekend is a
call to the coast for boating,
beach parties and water sports,
but it also can mean disaster
for Florida's beach-nesting
seabirds.
To help people enjoy the
holiday and avoid disturbing
nesting beach-nesting birds
and their young, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission, Florida
Department of Environmental
, Protection andZAUdubon of
- j.,rJida are asking ,.people to
abide by posted nesting areas.
"State and local agencies,
along with many conservation
groups, have made significant
efforts to identify and clearly
mark these areas to help pro-
tect beach-nesting wildlife


during critical nesting peri-
ods," said DEP Secretary
Michael Sole. "These nesting
areas are vital to the birds' sur-
vival, so we are asking resi-'
dents and visitors to keep an
eye out for signs or roped-off
areas while enjoying Florida's
sandy beaches."
The crush of people drawn
to Florida's coasts for the hol-
iday can be disastrous for
beach-nesting birds whose
nests are little more than small
scrapes in the sand. Human
disturbance flushes them off
their nests, leaving their eggs
to cook in the hot sun in mere
minutes.
"Most people think a moth-
er bird is incubating her eggs
to keep them warm," said Ann
Hodgson, Florida Coastal


Islands Sanctuaries Manager.
"With Florida's beach-nesting
birds, the parent is actually
providing shade to eggs and
chicks during the day. A single
significant disturbance can
destroy an entire colony."
"It's not that people don't
care, it's that the eggs, nests
and babies of these birds are
really hard to see until it's too
late," said Nancy Douglass,
* Regional Nongame Wildlife
Biologist for the FWC. "The
posted areas let people know
where these 1 Jnerable nuis-
eries" are. By walking a few
yards out of your way to avoid
disrupting these families, you
can help to insure successful
nesting and future generations
of beach-nesting wildlife."
These roped-off areas pro-


teet areas where a single dis-
turbance can affect hundreds
or thousands of birds and their
nests and only during this crit-
ical netting period.
In , .ces where beach driv-
ing is allowed, take extra care
to be aware of birds on the
beach. Drivers who move
faster than a pedestrian and are
isolated by their vehicles from
the sights and sounds of the
beach are more likely to over-
look birds. Furt-hermore,
chicks sometimes take shelter
in the depression of tire tracks.

SHS students participate in shower head project


"Do you think it's impor-
tant to conserve water only in
a drought?"
That was one of the ques-
tions asked of Jill Scott's
11llth-grade Earth/Space
Science students. It was good
to hear some of the students
say no, that we need to con-
serve water all of the time.
On May 1, Erin McCarta,
Lakes Management assistant
and I visited Sebring High
School. They spoke to the
students about the low-flow
shower heads that they have
been giving away to local res-
idents in an effort to conserve
water in our county. The stu-
dents were instructed to take
the old shower heads that res-
idents exchanged for the new
low-flows, and see how many
gallons per minute they pro-
duced.
During the presentation, we
instructed students how to
remove the existing shower
heads from their home show-
ers and replace them with the
ones handed out at the demon-


station for testing
purposes. Bags that
were supplied by
Southwest Florida
Water Management,
designed to measure
water usage, were
given to each stu-
dent along with one
of the exchanged
shower heads.
Students will take
the bags and shower
heads home and
measure their water

usage and report back to their
teacher, Ms. Scott.
The experiment will show
students how much more
water is used by the older
model of shower heads.
During the demonstration
some of the shower heads that
we received as trade-ins used
as much as 4 1/2 gallons per
minute. The low-flow shower
heads use only about 2 gal-
lons per minute.
Once the experiment is
concluded, students will have
the opportunity to take home
the new low-flow shower


heads and install
them in their homes.
These new low-flow
shower heads were
purchased with funds
from an educational
grant from the
Southwest Florida
Water Management
District.
Showering is one
of the top uses of res-"
idential water in the
United States, repre-
senting approximate-


ly 17 percent of indoor water
use - more than 1.2 trillion
gallons of water each year.
By timing your shower to
less than five minutes and
installing low-flow shower
heads, you can save up to 690
gallons of water per month.
And because a large portion
of water used for showering
goes through your hot water
heater, low-flow can save on
your electric bill. That's a lot
of savings!
There are so many ways we
can save water all year long.


But especially now, with the
drought conditions we are
facing, it is critical that we do
what we can to conserve this
precious resource.
According to Florida
Division of Emergency
Management, "Florida has
entered into a second year of
drought conditions, as
statewide average rainfall"'
deficits during 2006-07 were
the largest observed since the
mid 1950's. According to the
National Drought Monitor,
approximately 20 percent of
Florida is experiencing severe
to extreme drought conditions
as of Jan. 1, 2008. The
drought has been most pro-
nounced in southwest Florida
and the Kissimmee River
watershed. As a result, the
average elevation of Lake
Okeechobee has remained at
or near daily record low levels
since last spring and is cur-
rently more than 4 feet below
the historical average eleva-
tion for mid-January.
Streamflows are below nor-
mal across much of Florida.


Courtesy photo
Corine Burgess (from left) and Erin McCarta show students
Ashley Potts, Taylor Howard, Jillian Palmer, Kenny Daniels,
Charles Miller and Xavier Torres the difference in the old
shower heads and, the new low-flow devices.


Moderate La Nina conditions
in the equatorial Pacific are
expected to intensify the
drought in Florida during the
winter and spring months.
The recent freeze in central
Florida has increased the
wildfire threat since signifi-
cant rainfall has been con-
fined to the Florida panhandle
counties during the past
month."
The situation sounds grim,
but we can all make a differ-


ence when it comes to con-
serving and protecting our
natural resources. It is the
hope of the Highlands Soil
and Water Conservation
District that everyone, but
especially today's youth will
learn to be good stewards of
our natural resources.

Resources specialist with

Capricorn should handle personal problems this week


Sunday, May 25, 2008 * 5B


Aries (March 21-April 20) - Aries,
when offered a choice go for the very
best. There is no use skimping on the
things you really want. You're invincible
this week so make your mark at work.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) - Taurus,
the hardest worker is dften the one who
is least recognized. Don't get discour-
aged by those who hog the spotlight.
Higher-ups know how reliable and effi-
cient you are.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) - If you
want results, Gemini, you know exactly
where to get them. You have a large and
effective network of influential people.
Spread your wealth and help others.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) - Cancer,
the good times seem to be over but
they're not. Don't be overly dramatic.
The situation feels much worse than it
really is. Financial stability arrives on
Tuesday.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) - Leo, you
see the goodness and potential in every-
one, which is making your role as man-
ager more difficult. You'll need to decide
who is doing the best job and deserves
advancement.


HOROscOPE


Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) - A sur-
prise will shake things up this week,
Virgo. Keep an open mind about the sit-
uation rather than sinking into negative
thinking. Romance is put on hold.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Libra,
when an important project pops up mid-
week all you can do is your best. Keep
your eyes on the goal and don't let
nerves get the best of you or it could
mean trouble.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Scorpio,
put your complex brain to use instead of
dreaming the day away. You have so
much to do and watching the clouds go
by won't Help. Seek out Taurus for help.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -
Sagittarius, your life gets stirred into a
romantic whirl. Romance and enjoyment
is your top priority, as all other responsi-
bilities take a backseat. Enjoy these
moments while they last.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) -


Withdraw from the public eye to handle a
personal problem this week, Capricorn.
Family concerns may be a problem for
you if you're putting too much emphasis
on work.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) -
Yesterday's concerns are far behind you
this week, Aquarius. You are now march-
ing to the beat of different drummer with
a livelier step.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) - Pisces,
simple pleasures help you to relax this
week when the stress is high. Everyone is
looking to you for answers.

Highlands

Art League

to hold

reception for

Whitehead

By L.B. KIRKWOOD
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Highlands
Art League will honor artist
Juliette Whitehead at a recep-
tion from 5-8 p.m. Thursday
at The Yellow House
Gallery/giftshop. On display
will be Whitehead's watercol-
ors, collages and mixed
media.
Little did Whitehead know
when she enrolled in college
at the age of 58 that she would
be embarking on a whole new
career. Whitehead graduated
from Southeastern
Massachusetts University,
now the University of
Massachusetts/Dartmouth, in
1989 with a bachelor of fine
arts degree in painting.
She chose art because after
spending 30 years in the busi-
ness world. As a district sales
manager for Avon Products
Inc., she wanted something
totally different from that.
She remembers that, as a
child, she liked to trace things
and then in high school, she
would sketch portraits of her
friends during study hall.
Whitehead admits, that as
a 58-year-old, college was not

free popcorn.
Schedule of films:
* June 11: "The Water
Horse, Legend of the Deep:
(112-minutes, 2008). This
movie heart-warmingly satis-
fies any curiosity about the
Loch Ness monster.
* June 18: "Bee Movie"
(90 minutes, 2008). One of
the forbidden rules of "bee-


dom" is that bees should
never talk to humans. When
young worker bee Barry B.
Benson breaks that rule, un-
bee-lievable things happen.
0 June 25: "Alvin and the
Chipmunks" (91 minutes,
2007). Follow the hilarious
high-jinks of Alvin, Simon
and Theodore as the trouble-
making chipmunks try to be
superstars.

easy for her. She remembers
thinking that "all these young
people knew more about art
than I did." Eventually, how-
ever, she found that through
her "experience of life," she
knew more than she thought
she did. Also, achieving high
grades and good critiques
from her professors helped to
raise her confidence.
While living in
Massachusetts, Whitehead
painted mainly in oils and
acrylics. She belonged to sev-
eral art societies there, includ-
ing the Bierstadt Art Society
in New Bedford, the Fall
River Art Society and the
Taunton Art Society, winning
many awards for her work.

Brandon Decker has been
selected to participate in the
June International Baseball
series in Millington, Tenn.
"I am honored to be select-
ed," said Decker. "It feels
great to be among the top 22
players in the country, and I
look forward to get a look at
Taiwan."
Decker will be one of 22
Community College players
nation wide who-will represent
the USA, and the National
Junior Collage Athletic
Association (NJCAA) in a
three game International
Series against Taiwan.
The series will be held June
20-22 in Millington at USA

USA Baseball.


Decker was first team All

Decker was also selected

Hitting .404 and driving 68
RBI in 2007-2008 with

But Decker also broke
another SFCC record this
year, he was hit by pitches 27
times last season.
"It was pretty bad for the
first half of the season. I think
I got hit 20 times, it was
annoying for sure. It was like

News-Sunt correspondent
LAKE PLACID -
Although Avon Park Red
Devils defeated the Green
Dragons 13-7 in the spring
match-up at Roger
Scarborough Field in Lake
Placid, the learning curve
has just begun for both
teams.
"I am very happy with the
win, and it's just great to be
in Lake Placid," said Avon
Park's Andy Bonjokian in
his d6but game as head
coach.
"We've got some momen-
tum now, and we need to
capitalize on the momentum
to take the opportunity to get
our assignments done. We
have a good grasp of the


defense, and the kids under-
stand the offense, I just tried
to go outside a bit of what
we know and are good at.
Lake Placid's defense was
tough, and we are going to
isolate more on what we
know."
And according to Tim
Grant, Lake Placid's head
coach now in his second
year, the learning will con-
tinue on both side lines.
"We got some small
things we have to work on,
our misdirect offense . is
designed so that we cannot
miss a lot of assignments,
but we missed a few, and
that is something we have to
work on. But tonight showed
that these kids are bringing
it for sure," commented


Grant.
"I feel a lot more confi-
dent this year, and after
tonight, I am pleased with
how well the guys are com-
ing along."
"Physically, Avon Park
was definitely stronger than
we were, but we held their
offense. We had some good
plays. "They surprised me,
as fast as Avon Park is, we
still held our own. Looks
like Andy is doing a great
job so far, but
our chicken wings are def-
initely doing their job up
front," added Grant.
Avon Park took the oppor-
tunity to score first when
defensive lineman Robert
Cabrera picked up and
returned a fumble in the sec-


ond quarter with just over
six minutes of play left.
"I saw the ball on the
ground, and what coach
Elder taught us just kept
going through my head,
scoop and run. It was my
first touchdown ever, and it
felt good," said Cabrera, an
upcoming junior.
But the Red Devils PAT
would go wide leaving the
score 6-0.
Lake Placid's offense
would pound one in just a
few minutes later when Zach
Campbell would barrel
across from the one, and
kicker Steven Guelff would
nail the PAT making it 7-6
Lake Placid.

DEVILS
Continued from 1C
Park's defense would pickup
another fumble, this time
Steven Johnson would scoop
one up at the forty and rush in
for a TD.
Avon Park's Josue Garcia
would tap in the PAT making


the score 13-7 Avon Park.
The last part of the game
turned into a defensive grind,
Lake Placid seemed to make
some large gains using
Navahri Holden, Caleb Jones,
Alex Gort and Anothony
Gonzalez and the depth of
their backfield effectively, but
neither team could really
press the issue hard enough to
score again.

FACA
Continued from 1C
The score would remain
there for the remainder of the
ten full innings, with the help
of a Sebring player helping
the South team.
In a twist, between Friday
and Saturday, Blue Streak
Adam Simmons was 'traded'
from the East to the South
squad in order to give him a
chance to work from the
mound.
After taking a few innings
for the East at third Friday
night, Simmons toed the rub-
ber for the South Saturday,
holding his former teammates
scoreless for three innings.
From the seventh through
the ninth, Simmons allowed
just two hits, one a seeing-eye
grounder, while striking out
two and walking none.
"I was hitting my spots well
today and my fastball was
on," Simmons said. "It felt
really different. It was on my
home field but it felt much
different than I thought it
would. It felt different, but it
felt really good."
Vazquez, who had only. one
at-bat Friday night, got the
start at first Saturday and
reached twice while scoring
once.
"It was an honor to play
with the best in the state,"
Vazquez said. "It felt real
comfortable to be playing
here at home, this is one of
the best fields in Florida.
Realizing the company he
was a part of over the two
days, Vazquez' mindset for
the future was even more
determined.
"I'm heading off to college
and will work my tail off," he
said. "Hopefully in two years
someone will come look at
me."
In Friday's nightcap, both
the East and West teams were
held to one hit through the first
five innings before the East
broke through in the sixth.
Three straight singles by


'It was an honor
to play with the
best in the state.'

TONY VAZQUEZ
Chris Matulis (Lake Worth-
Park Vista), Bryan Brown
(Winter Springs) and Wrenn
put the East up 1-0.
But though they didn't add
to their hit total, the West tied
it right back up on the legs of
Tampa Sickles' Kenny
Wilson.
The speedy Wilson walked
to start the frame, stole sec-
ond, moved to third on a fly to
center and came in on a wild
pitch.
The West threatened again
in the seventh with Tampa-
Middleton's Jamie Mallard
hitting one off the wall in
right center for a double, and
the squads first hit since the
opening inning.
But Dalton Hicks worked
out of it, surrendering a one-
out walk, but striking out the
side.
Single runs did come in for
the West in the eighth and
ninth innings, on a Sean
Buckley (Tampa-King) RBI
single in eighth and with
Jacob Rogers (Dunedin) bat-
ting in Riverdales' Ryan
McChesney in the ninth.
And while the game essen-
tially ended after the East
failed to at least tie it up in the
tenth, the Classic calls for a
full ten innings to showcase
as much of the talent present
as possible - leading to two
more runs to provide for the
final 5-1 margin.
In the Classic opener, the
North and South teams traded
runs in the first, but it was a
three-run fifth that carried the
North to a 6-3 win.
Highlighting the three-run
rally were back-to-back home
runs, with Cameron Graves of
Wakulla High School rocket-
ing a two-run blast to right
and Josh McDorman of
Niceville High School follow-

The results from Saturday's
final match-up between the
North and West squads was
not available at press time.
But, however the final
game turned out, it was anoth-
er great baseball weekend in
Sebring for the best of the
best in the state of Florida,
where players with the
dreams of making it big got

Does Medicare recognize vestibular/fall and balance therapy?
YES! Not only do they recognize it, they welcome it as an ongoing movement toward the
reduction and prevention of hip fractures and the resulting mortality and morbidity


Some of these conditions include:
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo [BPPV) Labyrinthiris
Meniere's Disease Stroke and Transient Ischemic Attacks
Vestibular Neuritis

To help determine if you may be headed for a fall, take the Balance Self Test
below. If you answer 'yes' to one or more of the questions, you could be at
risk. The best way to determine if you have a problem, however, is to talk
with your physician who might recommend that you get a balance
screening test from a qualified clinician.
* Have you fallen more than once in the past year?
* Do you take medicine for two or more of the following diseases:
heart disease, hypertension, arthritis, anxiety or depression?
* Do you feel dizzy or unsteady if you make a sudden changes
in movement, such as bending down or quickly turning.
* Have you experienced a stroke or other neurological
S problem that has affected your balance?
* Do you have difficulty sitting down or rising
from a seated or lying position?

Video game may cause Wiinjuries but can be Wiinspiring


Gamers turn jock?
I will admit, I was a jock
turned gamer, which probably
has been part of the reason
I've been both in and out of
shape over the years since
my playing days.
By gamer, I mean a video
game junkie who could sit
for hours and have little more
fitness activity than rapidly
thrusting my thumbs on my
controller - which actually
could have lead to a career
on the professional thumb-
wrestling tour.
But I've always thought
that staying in shape can be
quite difficult for ex-athletes.
Being on teams in high
school, for instance, when
school is done, you go to
practice and do all the things
that you did in practice.


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne
It was the routine, the'
norm, the daily ritual that
you just did by wrote.
Once you stop, graduate, or
reach the end of the line
where your abilities can take
you, unless.you are one that
just naturally keeps up the
routine in a different arena,


that daily ritual is lost and the
pounds eventually pack on.
And perhaps it's the com-
petitive nature that brings
some to video games, notably
the sports related ones.
Sure, you could get your
blood flowing through the
angst and frustration of play-
ing the old Sega NHL
Hockey game or Madden
Football games, but that is a
rising blood pressure rather
than actually getting it flow-
ing aerobically.
But with advances in tech-
nology a'nd the introduction
of the Wii console a year and
a half ago, the former com-
petitive athlete has an outlet
that can actually help get
them moving again.
I bought the basic Wii
Sport about a month ago, and


I can honestly say I have
never sweated as much play-
ing video games.
Sure, I think I tweaked a
gluteal muscle while 'bowl-
ing,' my first Wii injury (or
Wiinjury) but it's kind of
neat to not just play a video
game, but play a video game.
One night I tried out the
boxing game and got so into
it, suddenly it was 2 a.m. and
I had to wring out my T-shirt
it was so soaked with sweat.
The system also has what
are called 'training' games,
from target practice for golf,
trying to chip it as close to
the hole as you can, to
knocking a heavy bag off it's
support in boxing, to trying
to knock down up to 91 pins
at a time in bowling.
There is also tennis and


baseball, which includes a
home run derby training
game - certainly enough to
keep me from just sitting in
front of the TV and channel
surfing on an off-night.
And now. Wii has appar-
ently come out with a 'Fit'
program, that will be hitting
the stores this week.
It includes a 'balance
board' which also weighs you
and helps determine your fit-
ness level, and the program
disc which includes 40 differ-
ent activities, ranging from
aerobics, balance and yoga to
strength training.
It's not necessarily giving
you a fitness routine. but a
smorgasbord of things to do to
keep you moving and engaged.
Hula hooping, ski jumping,
snowboarding. dancing - sure


sounds like a blast to me.
In a way, it's almost like
they're training you to get in
shape to play their other
sports games - which would
be good so I don't get any
more Wiinjuries.
But whatever the intent, it
definitely has my interest as
it takes the often tiring
thought of 'working out' and
adds a game element to it.
Technology in the gaming
world initially got us sitting
down and developing little
more than thumbs of steel.
But now it's getting us
back up out of our seats -
with great potential to slim
them down. *
I guess when it comes to
getting back into shape, for
yours truly, where there's a
Will, there's a way.
