SEBRING Several residents along
the canals fed by Little Lake Jackson
watched as a crane lifted their pontoon
boats into the air Tuesday morning.
The -morning-long operation cost the
high-and-dry boaters $300 apiece.
Most will pay a similar amount in the
future, when rains return and if Highlands
County performs much-needed mainte-
nance.
Ever since the 2004 hurricanes, resi-
dents along the canals who live on

on Saturday in celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary.

SEBRING Bernie Golde sur-
prised his wife of almost 50 years
with a brand new house instead of
the traditional gift of gold.
It wasn't an easy task choosing
a new home, securing financing
and enlisting help from key fami-
ly and friends, all sworn to secre-
cy.
"She's my life," Bernie said of
wife Irene Golde.
He calls her "Precious."
Though their golden anniver-


sary is a month away, July 20, the
Goldes renewed their vows
Sunday to accommodate a son and
daughter-in-law just back from a
West Africa mission.
Under the guise of a rehearsal
dinner Saturday, Bernie invited
family, friends and a few
strangers to 2013 Overlook Bay
Drive, an unfinished house in the
new development near Sparta
Road and State Road 66.
The cover story: Raymond and
Denise Brooker, longtime friends
'of the Goldes, knew the owners


who graciously allowed them to
use the house, which still lacked
an external facade, internal paint,
plumbing and electricity.
While not exactly an ideal set-
ting for an, afternoon meal in late
spring, it was the perfect place for
a man to surprise his true love.
"I still have my first mitt, I still
have my first fire truck, I.still
have my first bicycle, a
Schwinn," Bernie said. "And, I
still have my, first girlfriend."

APPD to leave calling cards

after making property checks


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.comn
AVON PARK The key to pre-
venting burglary and theft is to
remove the opportunity for the per-
petrator to commit the crime, said
members of the Avon Park Police
Department.
Helping to take away these
crimes of opportunity will be the
Courtesy Card Program, where
officers get out of their cars and
conduct business and property
checks.
"This is something (APPD Chief
#Matthew Doughney) is bringing
lvith him from the Daytona Beach
Police Department," said APPD
Commander Michael J. Rowan.
"He said this was something that


was very successful in Daytona
Beach."
Success can be anything from
community feedback to stopping a
single burglary.
"If an officer gets out of the car
and catches someone committing a
crime or somewhere they're not
supposed to be," that would make
the program a success, Rowan said.
"If you stop one crime, you have
succeeded in what you have to do."
The checks will start this week-
end and will spread through the
entire city, at all times of the day
and night.
Every house on the block may
not be checked, but it will be "a lit-
tle more in-depth check (than)

Pandemic exercise to test

county departments today


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin .shlntt!@newi ssin.comi
SEBRING A well-laid
plan should prevent pandemo-
nium in the streets should a
bio-terrorism attack result in a
pandemic.
From 8:30 a.m. to 12:30
p.m. today, the Highlands
County Health -Department
and several other local agen-
cies are testing their plans and
preparation for, and response
to, a mass biological casualty.
"It is not real, this is for the
different agencies to test their
capabilities," said Ann Rowe-
McMullen, a spokeswoman
for Emergency Response
Educators and Consultants.
Emergency Response will


evaluate the local participants,
which range from the health
department and school board
to Florida Hospital Heartland
'Division and American Red
Cross.
County Public Information
Officer Gloria Rybinski said
the right turn lane onto George
Boulevard from U.S. 27, as
well as the Health Department
offices, will be closed for the
duration of the exercise.
Because various agencies
. will be put through the paces
today, Rowe didn't want to
disclose how the exercise
would play out.
It is, she said, a culmination
event preceded by a table top
exercise.

SEBRING By Tuesday
afternoon, two-thirds of
potential candidates for the
various county offices up for
grabs had qualified, making
official their candidacies.
Amid all the hubbub of a
short-lived Carl Cool bid for
District 1 commissioner,
Zane Thomas's filing of"
intent to seek Commissioner
C. Guy Maxcy's District 3
seat flew under the radar.
to need experi-
ence to see us
through," Maxcy
said Tuesday,
responding to
Thomas' poten-
tial candidacy. Thomas
"I think I want
to run for one
more term," said
Maxcy' who in
his fourth term
since 1992 has
been on the com- Mano
mission for 16 Maxcy
years. "You want to call it a
'farewell term,' fine."
Neither Maxcy nor Thomas
had qualified by Tuesday
afternoon, though both
intended to do so by the noon
Friday deadline.
Before he fades into the
background, however, Maxcy
said he had several issues on
which he wanted to get the
ball rolling.
He was willing to outline a
few of his ideas.
First, there was mental
health.
Second, transportation.

AVON PARK A Friday
the 13th pursuit ended with a
man allegedly taking one last
hit from a crack pipe before
being tased and arrested.
Officers were patrolling the
area of Garrett Road and
South Cummings Avenue- in
Avon Park when they saw
Eddie Baez, 37, Avon Park,
walking away from an
unidentified man.
"It appeared that an illegal
drug transaction just occurred
in our presence," Deputy
Ernest Gelinas of the
Highlands County Sheriffs
Office wrote in the arrest
report. "As Baez was walking
away he looked at his hand
and checked what he just
received."
Gelinas and another officer
approached Baez, activating
the lights on their unmarked
police vehicle.
Baez looked at the two offi-
cers then jumped in his red
Dodge truck and fled the
scene, Gelinas said.
The pursuit led the officers
to U.S. 27 after allegedly wit-
nessing Baez run several stop
signs.
When he reached the U.S.
27 and Main Street intersec-
tion, Baez ran over the
cement median and started
driving north in the south-
bound lane, Gelinas said.
South of Sun Pure Road,
Baez allegedly turned right
off of U.S. 27 into an orange


grove, hitting a tree.
The truck then went up an
embankment. On the other
side there was a steep decline
and a set of railroad tracks.
"The front wheels of the
truck went over the first set of
tracks and got stuck," Gelinas
said.
The two officers
approached the immobile
truck, one on each side, and
yelled to Baez to get out.
"I observed him attempting
to light the end of suspected
glass crack pipe," Gelinas
said. "He then jumped to the
passenger side of the vehicle
and threw the glass pipe at
me."
Gelinas was able to subdue
Baez with a taser long enough
to take him into custody.
The pipe Baez allegedly
threw at Gelinas tested posi-
tive in a field test for cocaine,
and in the ashtray of the truck
Gelinas found a balled up
napkin containing an
"unknown white substance."
Through the course of the
chase' Baez racked up seven
charges, from second degree
felony fleeing police, to mis-
demeanor trespassing.
Baez remains in the
Highlands County Jail on
$5,250 bond.
The listed charges are flee-
ing police, battery on an offi-
cer, property damage, tres-
passing, resisting arrest with-
out violence, possession of
cocaine, and possession of
narcotic equipment.

The barn complex, at 1180
Winthrop St., is composed of
two buildings that sit on two
and a half acres. It will house
12 steers and/or heifers, and


24 swine.
"That means that 36 more
students will have an opportu-

coming year," Sally Perry.

Perry is president--of the

project through.
The property includes
another seven and a half

turns out to be about a three-
mile ', ,t!k through the park.
"We got a large group of
kids with wholesome activi-
ties to get the word out about
no tobacco or drugs," Sebring
High School junior Mickey
Lukens said.


"To be in a healthy environ-
ment, that's what this whole
Jtiini is about."
Lukens is a member of the
SHS Students Working
Against Tobacco group, and
spoke about the health risks of
being a smoker.
"Short-term, long-term,
there are just so many," he
told the students.


Even though there were a
group of School Resource
Officers' and other adults on
hand at the park, the day was
mostly put on for students by
students.
"As students, we are lead-
ers to the youth instead of
adults," Lukens said.
The substance-free mes-
sage is clearer when given by


someone their own age, he
said.
It's important to give the
students a choice to have sub-
stance-free lifestyles, Lees
said.
"One of the ways is to put
on events that are drug, ciga-
rette and alcohol free," she
said.
"So they can have fun in


drug- and alcohol-free envi-
ronments."
The event reached students
further than only in Sebring,
but Lees said she wants to do
more to spread the message to
the Avon Park and Lake
Placid communities by host-
ing similar events.
"With perhaps a block party
atmosphere," she said.

Hoping for justice

If ever there was a time to be afraid, it is now.
After all, the world appears to be iii turmoil, the
economy as well.
And as if the blurry general future isn't unsettling
enough, two innocent women were assaulted
Saturday in Sebring. So now our sense of personal
safety is threatened too.
But are we right to be afraid?
"I just hope for justice," the first victim said, short-
ly after the act.
We also hope for justice.
And at three levels.
We hope the correct individual the one who used
good manners to get close to his targets and then
betrayed the sense of community with vicious vio-
lence is caught, processed fairly, and safely put
away.
We hope for that kind of justice. Quickly.
We have hope that that kind of justice can prevail,
because as bad as the attacks were, they brought a
small, but welcome, second level of justice.
Just following the attack, at a time when adrenaline
was still coursing through their veins, witnesses were
kind enough to tell a reporter what they had seen and
heard.
Every single one of them simply referred to the
assailant as a "young man."
It wasn't until they were asked for a detailed
description that the man's skin color was mentioned.
We feel this is a step in the right direction toward
racial justice, especially because the assailant was
black, and for generations, white people have tended
to lead into stories with this information, even when
it is irrelevant.
But Saturday, the witnesses saw an assailant first -
a man who just happened to be black.
Which leads us to the third, and highest, level of
justice.
After going on three centuries of trials and success-
es, failures and breakthroughs, we think it is only just
to have faith in this nation, in its institutions, its his-
tory, its resilience and promise.
It is only just, in other words, to have faith in'our
future.
Don't let a random, anti-social miscreant scare us
into doubting our ability to survive.
Don't let him scare us into hiding behind locked
doors.
That would be the biggest injustice of all.

Bugged by global warming


Bugs. They want
us to eat bugs.
I speak of a recent
article in Time that
explains why eating
bugs is good for the
environment.
As it goes, bugs
require "little room
and few resources to Tal
grow." Bugs are
cold-blooded inverte- T
brates, you see. They Tom
are efficient. Much
more of the grub they eat is
converted into edible bug
body parts than is the case
with our friends the cows.
Cows are warm-blooded
vertebrates. They need to con-
sume lots more food just to
keep their body temperature
steady. Their food'is grown
on farms. Fossil-fuels must be
burned to harvest, process and
transport it. Farming requires
lots of land and water.
"It takes far less water to
raise a third of a pound of
grasshoppers than the stagger-
ing 869 gal. needed to pro-
duce the same amount of
beef," reports Time.
True, but a hunk of steak is
less likely to hop off your
plate while you're trying to
eat it.
Better yet, bugs are good
for us. A 3.5 oz. portion of
caterpillars contains loz. of
protein. That's more than
you'd get in the same. amount
of chicken assuming the
caterpillars don't try to crawl


king
bm
Purcell


out of you.
, Water bugs have
four times as much
iron as beef. Of
course, you need to
be four times as
drunk to consume
them.
. And bugs are
tasty. People in other
cultures have been
enjoying them for
years. We narrow-
minded Americans


wouldn't know that, though.
We wouldn't know that
chocolate and waxworm
cookies are delicious (and I'm
not making that one up).
If you find the concept of
bug eating amusing if you
find it icky you might want
to think again. The way things
are headed, you may be eating
plenty of bugs soon.
Look, where global warm-
ing is concerned, I'm with
syndicated columnist Charles
Krauthammer I'm a global
warming agnostic. It can't be
good that we're pumping so
much C02 into the environ-
ment and it may be that
our activity is having an
effect on the climate.
On the other hand, it may
be we're having little or no
effect. Despite what many
global-warming alarmists are
saying, science doesn't know
for certain. Science has two
speeds: "proven as fact" and
"not sure." Like it or not, the
scientific theory that humans


are causing the Earth to warm
is still in the "not sure" camp.
Nonetheless, we're racing
ahead in an anti-global-warm-
ing frenzy. Some global-
warming advocates have
turned the issue into a religion
- the believers shall be
exalted and the deniers shall
be burned at the stake.
Many in the media folks
who are supposed to be skep-
tical about things are as
enamored of the "humans-are-
destroying-the-Earth" story-
line as they are of Barack
Obama. They love to report
doomsday scenarios that scare
the bejesus out of us.
And the do-gooders, who
love to control what the rest
of us do, believe they've
finally landed an issue that
will give them the power they
seek the power to make the
rest of us sacrifice on a global


scale to save Mother Earth.
The do-gooders are making
tremendous headway. That's
why I recommend you bone
up on your cooking tech-
niques.
You especially might want
to master the use of garlic and
butter and other spices and
herbs that will effectively
mask the taste of those
crunchy critters we usually
step on or swat.
You might want to invest in
a good-quality blender, too
("bugamole," anyone?).
Because the global-warming
frenzy is picking up intensity.
And that means one thing.
Bugs. They want us to eat
bugs.

Take sand from one trouble
place to help another
Editor:
Read today that Pier Beach wilk be
closed for at least a month to fill in the
offshore dredge hole. The recent tragic
drowning accident at this dredge hole has
made this a notable priority. I never
knew and suspect many never knew of
this hole.
There is another 30-foot deep hole just
south of the channel between Lake
Jackson and Little Lake Jackson (on the
Little Lake Jackson side). The problem,
according to the newspaper articles is
where to get the sand.
Fire Department Chief (Brad) Batz has
wisely suggested digging out sand from
the boat ramp at Veterans Beach. The
water there is too shallow to get the fire
department rescue boat in the water. This
would supply a portion of the sand need-
ed to fill the hole and solve two prob-
lems.
My question is what if the fire depart-
ment rescue boat is needed in Little Lake
Jackson. The channel has not been open
for a long time and is filled with sand.
There is no boat launch ramp on Little
Lake Jackson. The only entry is through
the sand filled channel. The Army Corps
of Engineers is uncertain what to do with
the sand if it was ever approved to clear
the channel.
Well I suggest we also use that sand to
fill the dredge hole. It's free, it's there
and it's already a natural part of the
lakes. Simply move it to another advan-
tageous point.
Again, more than one problem solved
with one action. We've been trying for
years to get rid of this sand under the
bridge. Now we know where to put it.

Too much red tape with Small
Claims in Florida
Editor:
Why the services of an attorney or para-
legal must be hired before a common
person can enter a Small Claims Court.
Kind of begs the question, why do they'
call it Small Claims if you have to hire
an attorney or para-legal before you can
enter the court?
My name is Rober Skorka, I use to
own Gecko's Nightclub, downtown
Sebring on the Circle, maybe you
remember me. I sold the nightclub ... I
recently have foreclosed on the property
and have taken it back into my posses-
sion and have had occasion to have expe-
rience with the Small Claims Cout in
Highlands County.
Much to my surprise, (1.) 1 found that
the common man is not allowed to enter
Small Claims Cout without first hiring an
attorney, or para-legal. (2.) That hiring an
attorney or para-legal is not, I repeat not
necessary in almost all other states. (3.)
that to deny an individual access to the
Courts if they don't hire an attorney or
para-legal, kind of 'defeats the notion


(small claims). (4.) The reason an indi-
vidual is not able to file a claim imn
Highlands County court is that the peo-
ple that work in the system, by policy are
forbidden to aid the person trying to file
the claim, because they cannot give
legal advice, (" they are not lawyers ).
This notion is absurd and in almost all.
other states in the United States is not, I
repeat not, followed.
For example, in the state of Texas if
you wanted to file a claim in Small
Claims Court, what you simply do is go
to the court, fill out a very simple form
stating your grievence. This form is writ-
ten in very simple layman's terms. You
pay a $60 filing fee. You are then sched-
uled for aC very informal hearing with a
Small Claims judge. The opposing defen-
dandent is severd notice to appear. You
both arrive, present your evidence and
case to the judge, he then makes a ruling.
Short, sweet and to the point. These rul-
ings are for realitively small amounts of
money. I beleive in Texas it is for claims
under $6,000. What is most important is
the common man has access to the
courts. In Texas, an attorney or para-
legal is not, I repeat not necessary, as it
should be. After all there is a reason they
call it Small Claims.
For the Florida courts to set up artifi-
cial barriers, denying the common man
access to the courts is wrong and should
be unconstitutional, because what the
state is in effect saying is" if you can't
pay for an attorney or para-legal, you can
not have any justice in this, the lowest
level of our legal system. Why should a
common man seeking justice in Small
Claims be denied that justice, simply
because he does not have the money for
an attorney or para-legal?
I urge citizens to demand this system
in our Small Claims Court be changed so
that the common man has a place to go
for justice. I intend to start a petition,
enlist the aid of anyone and every one I
can, local politicians, state senators, and
Congress people, etc., especially the
media, whose duty it is to support and
aid those who do not have a voice.
My mailing address is 3811 Cormorant
Point Drive, Sebring, FL 33872. My e-
mail is bcskorka@embarqmail.com. My
phone number is 458-0661. I urge any
and all to contact me to help in making
right something that is, at present, so
very wrong.

Mahoney should be a patriot,
not Pelosi puppet
Editor:
Double speaking-, which used to be
talking out of b, ill sides of one's mouth,
is never a desirable quality to witness in
anyone. I am especially troubled when I
hear it so blatantly from someone repre-
senting me in Congress.
Congressman (Tim) Mahoney recently
returned from visiting our troops and
complimented them on their high morale
and sense of purpose. Then he said it is
time to put partisanship aside regarding


our troops and make sure they get every-
thing they need.
This, from someone who just recently
voted to cut our troops funding! Mr.
Mahoney obeyed Nancy Pelosi and
turned his back on some of America's
finest. It's actions like this that gives
politicians a bad name. Be a patriot Mr.
Mahoney, not a Pelosi puppet.

'Move Over Florida!' and help

protect those who help you


SEBRING The
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, along with other law\
enforcement agencies
throughout the county and
state,, will be conducting a
special multi-agency opera-
tion similar to the annual
Click It or Ticket Campaign,
but one which focuses on the
Move Over Law: the law that
was designed to protect law
enforcement and other emer-
gency workers on our high-
ways.
The first Move Over law
enforcement operation is
scheduled for June 23-29.
During this campaign, law
enforcement agencies will
dedicate available resources
to participate in this week-
long event educating drivers.
Drivers are now required to
"move over" or "slow down"
when approaching an author-
ized emergency vehicle that is
stopped on a highway in
Florida. The "Move Over
Act," passed during the 2002
session of the Florida
Legislature, was signed by
Governor Jeb Bush on May 1,
2002.
0 On a two-lane roadway,
you are required to slow to a
speed that is 20 miles per
hour less than the posted
speed limit.


If the speed limit is 20
miles per hour or less, you
niust slow down to five miles
per hour.
If you are driving on an
interstate or roadway with
multiple lanes of travel in the
same direction, and you
approach an emergency or
law enforcement vehicle
parked along the roadway,
you must vacate the lane clos-
est to that vehicle as soon as it
is safe to do so.
Violating the move over
law puts both yourself and a
public safety professional at
risk.
Violating the move over
law can result in a fine and
points on your license.
Sheriff Susan Benton
reminds Highlands County
motorists of our own serious
move. over violation when
Deputy Sheriff Roger St.
Laurent was injured as he was
working traffic on U.S. 27.
On Jan. 31, 2006, St. Laurent
was struck by a passing
motorist while issuing a traf-
fic citation, all of which was
captured on the in-car cam-
era. Had t.he motorist simply
moved over at the sight of the
flashing lights, St. Laurent
could have safely, done his
job.

Local student travels to China with


LeadAmerica's Ambassadors Abroad


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Elke
Tagesson, a student at
Sebring High School, has
been selected to attend the
2008 Ambassadors Abroad
program, sponsored by
LeadAmerica. Elke will join
other young leaders who will
travel to China and earn col-
lege credit for her participa-
tion.
Elke and fellow
LeadAmerica students will
spend two weeks in China,
traveling to Shanghai,
Beijing and Xi'an. They will
learn about the country's his-
tory and culture, its system
of government, business and
economic climate, its educa-
tion system and much more.
They will tour and explore
the country, learning from
local experts and immersing
themselves in the local cul-
ture.
Like all LeadAmerica high
school conferences,
Ambassadors Abroad is col-
lege-accredited and students
earn up to two college credits


for their participation.
In Bcijing, Elke will visit
Tiananmen Square, the
Forbidden City and the
Summer Palace and take an
excursion to the Great Wall.
While in Shanghai, she will
take a cruise on the Huangpu
River and visit local busi-
nesses and a local hospital.
"Ambassadors Abroad pro-
grams give students a chance
to better understand cultural
differences and develop a
greater appreciation for
diversity. International travel
and global leadership experi-
ence can make an important
difference in the lives of
teenagers in their academic
and personal performance, in
their acceptance to the col-
lege of their choice and in
their level of focus, passion
and purpose," says Chris M.
Salamone, Esquire, founder
and executive director of
LeadAmerica. "Leadership is
the key to what they do with
their lives and how well they
do it. In today's world, it is


imperative that we nurture
leadership potential from a
very young age.
"Since 1989 I have had the
privilege of seeing more than
60,000 exceptional students
from over 51 counties learn
first-hand about leadership
and explore its role in a vari-
ety of educational disci-
plines. It's my sincere hope
that LeadAmerica will give
young leaders the skills to
help them along the road
toward a successful and
rewarding life of leadership."
LeadAmerica is the
nation's premier youth lead-
ership organization. With a
commitment to providing
quality leadership education,
LeadAmerica empowers
teenage leaders and instills in
them ethical and principled
leadership values, attitudes
and skills. Each of its high
school conferences is col-
lege-accredited and its pro-
grams are approved activities

Bernie Golde gives his 'Precious' wife a kiss on Saturday.


PALACE
Continued from 1A
They began dating in 1957,
but only after he sought
advice from her girlfriends
- a clique of girls that
included Irene who unwit-
tingly doled out suggestions
to help Bernie approach the
unidentified girl.
After receiving their
advice, he turned to Irene and
asked her out for a date.
"I was smitten with her,"
Bernie said, recalling,how he
met Precious in high school.
"She was this beautiful red-
headed girl. I was shy."
They married in 1958 and
in quick succession had their
three children in 1959, 1960
and 1962.
The Goldes moved to
Sebring in 1963. living in the
DeSoto City area for 17
years before moving to Kerry
Drive 28 years ago.
"I'm just overwhelmed that
everybody's here," Precious
said, moments after learning
the house was hers. "I'm
totally in shock right now."
With family and friends
leading the way. Precious
toured the 3,755 totaT'tiquare
feet of her new home.


'I'm totally in

shock right now.'

IRENE GOLDE

Bernie hopes she'll do the
entertaining she's been
"ashamed" to do presently.
The old house is in con-
stant need of repairs, Bernie
said, explaining recent
improvements required
tongue biting.
"One of the hardest things
about keeping this secret was
paintitrg the front of the
house and cleaning the carpet
knowing I had a new house
waiting," he said.
Some of the "strangers" at
the faux-rehearsal dinner
included Mary Morgan,
Shelagh Byatt and Kelly,
Griffin.
Morgan, a retired doctor
turned real estate agent, sold
her first house to the Goldes,
who will be Highland Lakes
Preserves' first residents after
Precious puts the finishing
touches on the home.
"We thought it would be
nice if you could be a part of
it," interior design consultant
Kelly Griffin told Precious.


'Byatt built the Overlook
Bay home.
She said the house was 80
percent complete Saturday,
by design, allowing Precious
to pick colors, tiles, carpet,
light fixtures and such.
Was she concerned
Precious would hate the
house?
Not really.
"My feeling is that he's
been married to Mrs. Golde
for 50 years," Byatt said.
"They obviously know each
other's likes."
Bernie couldn't take any
brochures and Byatt and
Morgan were forbidden from
calling him.
Instead, they had to rely on
him to show up or call to
check on progress and
address any issues that might
have arisen since they last
sp ke.
Bernie had to come up
with good excuses and sto-
ries to cover his absences
from the home.
"I've had this idea a long
time," he said, explaining he
spent a lot of time research-
ing. "After she'd go to bed,
I'd go on the Internet until
two, three in the morning.
It's just been fantastic."

from the patrol cars," Rowan said.
After the property check is completed, the
police officer will place a courtesy card on the
door providing the resident or business owner
helpful information, Doughney said in a press
release.
The card will include the officer's name,
date and time they were there, and includes a
spot for comments.


"If they see something out of place (or)
found a window ajar, (the comment would)
suggest they clo's~'their windows after hours,
anything like that., Rowan said.
Inside the cards will be information on how
to prevent residential or business burglaries,
vehicle burglaries or thefts, and a list of
important phone numbers.
"It shows more of a. relationship between
the police department and the community,"
Rowan said. "We want to work together and
that's what solves crimes."


ELECTION
Continued from 1A
need with gas prices what
they are," he said.
Third were the seniors, for
whom Maxcy envisions a
one-stop shop of county and
private agencies to ease infor-
mation gathering.
His final point was a gener-
al statement to improve coun-
ty agencies, though Maxcy
didn't want to specify which
departments or to what
extent.
"It'll be a busy four years,"
Maxcy said. "It will likely be
my last term."
Term limits continues to be
a hot topic locally and nation-
ally amid concerns that politi-
cians lose sight of why they
sought office in the first
place.
Asked whether he'd com-
mit himself to a final term if
re-elected, Maxcy almost said
yes.
"Other politicians would,
say I'd be crazy to tell you
that," he said. "It all depends.
If some radical person ran and
the public came to me and
begged me, 'You got to run,'
then I probably would."
Maxcy said he was sur-
prised that Thomas entered
the race so late.
Thomas filed his paper-
work Friday with the
Supervisor of Elections.
He wasn't under the opin-
ion he had much catching up
to do.
"If it takes you a year to get
your message out, then you're
probably not the right person
for the job," Thomas said
Tuesday evening, having just
arrived home from work.
"One of the points I have
stressed is the whole cam-
paign process is too long."
Thomas is running with no
party affiliation, even though
he ran unsuccessfully as a
Democrat against state Rep.
Denise Grimsley and headed
the local Democratic Party
until about eight months ago.
His break with the
Democratic Party came with
the moving forward of the
national primary and the
resultant "fiasco."
"I'm taking a break,"
Thomas said of distancing
himself from affiliating with
political parties, major or
minor. "The realization I
came to is that if you belong
to either one of those parties,
you can't speak to represent-
ing the majority of people.
"As soon as you mention
you belong to one of those
parties, the other half quits
listening."
County Democrats have
heard Thomas' message and
local Republicans are open to
it, he said.
So, what would have them
hear?
"At the local level, there're
young adults driving around
Highlands County who
weren't born when Guy
Maxcy was first elected,"
Thomas said. "There are dic-
tatorships that don't last that
long."
He chuckled at his analogy,
but bolstered it with what
appears will be his mantra,
"new blood, fresh ideas, posi-
tive change."
His number one priority as
a commissioner would be
growth management, fol-
lowed by other issues which
may seem unimportant to
some segments of the popula-
tion.
"They're all important to
the county," Thomas said,
mentioning goals of an ATV
riding area for residents and
place where astronomers
could enjoy the night sky. "It
doesn't matter if it's a big
issue or a small issue."
Zane retired from the Navy,


a commander with 25 years of
active duty service. He cam-
paigned for state legislator
then was hired by County
Development Services
Director Jim Polatty as a
planner.
He said county staff is
being underutilized.
"I've been sitting through a
year's worth of commission
meetings," Thomas said.
"There's just a lot of things
they request of staff. And,
they have stuff that aren't
being utilized to their fullest


ability."
Unless the county wants a
three-fold increase of half-
developed subdivisions,
Thomas said the county needs
to re-focus on business-based
growth instead of building
more homes.
"Without that job opportu-
nity, it just ensures that we're
going to end up with more
retirees on fixed incomes," he
said.
Thomas researched
whether the federal Hatch Act
applies to him, preventing
him. from seeking office while
employed by the county.
He said the state elections
office confirmed it did not
because he doesn't handle
federal funding, nor is he con-
sidered an "officer" or elected
official.
"If I were fortunate enough
to win, I would have to
resign," Thomas said. "Up
until that point, I'm fine."
If elected, he said, he'd
have more time to focus on
the job of commissioner than
those currently serving and
holding civilian jobs.

Cool witdraws from
race
Less than a week after
announcing he'd run against
District 1 Commissioner
Barbara Stewart, retired
County Administrator Carl
Cool called her to confirm his
decision to withdraw from the
race.
Qualifying began Monday
and ends Friday, and Cool
told the News-Sun on Monday
he had no intention of quali-
fying.
"After two weeks of talking
with people, I concluded
there were more issues than I
would have time to address
before the election," Cool
said of the August primary,
which likely would have
decided the race.
.As of

Monday y,
nobody from
outside the
Republican
Party had sur-

Cool and Stewart.
Cool retired May 31, hav-
ing served as the county's
first administrator for 17
years.
He had worked his way up
from assistant county engi-
neer, a new position when he
accepted the job 33 years ago.
With two months until the
Aug. 26 primary, Cool said
the issues he'd have to
address included concerns of
"double dipping," and being
"one-fifth of the boss" of
County Administrator
Michael J. Wright, who
replaced Cool and began Jun.

"That was unsettling for a
lot of people," Cool said. "I
never felt like I would be one
to short circuit the chain of
command."
Previously, he told the
News-Sun that it has always
been his policy to include
supervisors should an
employee come directly to
him, a practice he said would
continue should he have been
elected.
But, Cool said, "perception
becomes reality."
By 2:30 p.m. Monday, Cool
had not spoken directly to
Stewart but had left a mes-
sage on her voicemail.
Stewart did not return a call
Monday afternoon.
Cool said he'd continue
working with wife Maureen
on Team Cool at RE/MAX
realty.
Asked if he'd continue his
involvement with county gov-
ernment, he said maybe.
"I don't have any issues I
need to present t6 the board at
this time," Cool said, explain-


ing his focus will be more on
work and next month's
Heartland Triathlon.
In explaining his decision,
Cool drew on Kenny Rogers'
"The Gambler."
"You got to know when to
hold 'em, know when to fold
'em," Cool said, reciting the
lyrics.

Several ways to fight infections naturally


Several ways to fight infections naturally


Question: I've been filling
in for my brother at work
these last two weeks, but it's
not the most enjoyable task
for me. He's fighting off a
skin infection and has been
to several doctors. He's get-
ting better, but not fast
enough for me! Any sugges-
tions? CC Lawrenceburg,
Tennessee
Answer: Human skin is
always teeming with bacteria,
fungi and other germs, but
these 'bugs' need a suitable
host to cause infection. They
like people with weak
immune systems the result
of too much stress, fast food
and work. People with the
strongest immune systems
tend to consume lots of "rab- ,
bit food." Consider the fol-
lowing natural immune
boosters:
1. Spirulina: This super-
food comes from blue-green
algae and is an incredible
source of protein, vitamins,
minerals and the powerful
detoxifier, chlorophyll.
Spirulina is best known for
its immune-boosting proper-
ties and it can be used for
cancer. Take daily, especially
if you eat meat.
2. Garlic: Add one clove of
lightly saut6d garlic to foods
each day. Finding high quali-
ty supplements is iffy. I like
Kyolic's Aged Garlic because-
the garlic is free of pesti- '
cides: it's odorless and con-
tains added antioxidants.
Clinical trials often use
Kyolic brand.


DearRPharmacist
Suzy Cohen

3. Tea Tree Oil: Dab it on
the skin-do not take inter-
nally! Tea tree is native to
Australia. Make sure you buy
100 percent pure oil, rather
than a dilution.
4. Zinc: The mineral revs
up the immune system, pre-
venting infections. Zinc can
latch on to the cold-causing
rhinovirus and destroy it
before the infection becomes
full blown. Take it at the first
sniffle to shorten your cold
misery by three or four days.
A good maintenance dose is
10-15mg daily.
5. Olive Leaf Extract: This
is a powerful anti-everything,
relieving vaginal yeast infec-
tions, herpes, pre-menstrual
syndrome, psoriasis,
headaches, chronic fatigue,
diabetes and .hypertension. It
curbs the production of
"reverse transcriptase and
protease,' making olive leaf a
must for people with
AIDS/HIV. Take about
500mg three times daily
(standardized).
6. Probiotics & Enzymes:
These supplements minimize


infections and cure other
nagging gastrointestinal
problems. Conventional
antibiotics are drug muggers
for intestinal flora, making
probiotics absolutely essen-
tial for anyone taking them.
7. Vitamin D: Sun yourself
for 15 minutes each day -
it's free! Studies prove that
your skin cells need D to pre-
vent infection, reduce inflam-
mation and improve auto-
immune conditions.
8. Oregano: Use fresh herb
or supplement; it bolsters
your immune system, driving
out bacteria, fungus and par-
asites and it also reduces
blood sugar.
9. Green Tea: Drink one
cup at night, any flavor.
10. Larch Arabinogalactan:
Incredibly powerful, even
used for cancer. It activates
your 'killer' cells, which
defend you from chronic
chest, sinus or ear infections.
When my kids were young, I
gave them Arabinex powder
sold online or at Thorne
Research (800) 228-1966.

Did You Know?
A new study shows that
four weeks of fast food and
sugary drinks can spark the
beginnings of liver damage
and diabetes.

SEBRING RECREATION CLUB
Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING -- We want to
thank God for all our manly
blessings. Ada Williams had
her surgery and is home with
a little discomfort yet. She is
not able to shuffle with us yet,
but just wait. Ed Williams had
a stint in one leg and now
waits for the other leg to be
done.
You are aware that the
recreation club is one of the
friendliest clubs in Sebring.
We are no longer the Tourist
Club, but the Recreation
Club. which functions all
year. We have members that
travel from Avon Park and
also Lake Placid to attend
club functions.
Cards (bridge) is the game
offered at this time. Get
enough to start up another
game besides bridge if you
want. Line dancing is
Wednesday evening only at
this time. Table tennis is
played on Tuesday and Friday
at 4 p.m. I hear that the tables
are fixed but the men are stay-
ing quiet about the ladies, so 1
hope this means the ladies are
beating the men. Lon Mollins
and Tom Bruha can be found
at a table most of the time.
Owen and Dave Jolly have
been able to make table tennis
and that is good news. Have
you given us a chance to meet


you yet?
You get from life what you
put into life. With you attend-
ing you may cause change as
we grow and Ed Straub would
love more things to be con-
corned about. Today we
should save energy and bring
a carload of friends when youe
drive to the club. John Bushee
would love to see more of
Sebring shufflers in action.
We need more people to learn
the game with only two learn-
ing at this time we want more
of you to learn. So if you are
afraid of being the only one to
begin, no worry for we have
more.
June 26 finds the Summer
Shuffleboard Draw
Tournament in Sebring again.
There's a $5 entrance fee and
you bring your lunch for a
great day of competition and
fellowship with some fine
people from all over Florida.
The cost of travel will keep
the number of travelers down.
Ralph Day and Walcott Davis
are both due for a win. John
Bushee is also expected for a
win. This is just a partial list
of the local players that will
be in this one. We hope that
Winnie Wells and Betty Rizor
both make this tournament.
Edna Myatt is now ready for
tournament play and if she
should play she will be one
tough lady to beat.
Many local players could
be winners at any tournament
but more people lose than win


at any competition. Bill Hann
is a hard man on the courts
and now lie is armed witi a
new cue. He does not need a
new one with the good gameic
that he now shoots. Lisa
LaCotti played an excellent
game. Lisa and husband Joe
LaCotti are just a couple of
the nice people that you meet
playing shuffleboard.
Call Ed Straub about the
club with suggestions or ques-
tions at 386-0245. Find us in
back of the Sebring Police
Station, 333 Pomegranate
Ave. It does not cost you to
come and meet us and to give
us a chance. Be our guest and
see if you enjoy or not.

ferent kinds of homemade

when the sudden rain storms
often bring lightning and high
winds. Also please remove
pots and lawn decorations
from your yards since they
can be easily lifted and flown
about causing damage to
neighboring properties.
Sunshine Lady Carol Noel

Clemens has had knee
replacement and Carol
Oldham is recovering follow-
ing her heart surgery. Doug
Peterson is home following

ture of your husband Wyith
their. children as we will be
paying special tribute to the
men in honor of Father's Day.
Nella Tenbroek announced
that Dore Johnson will have
resident directories available
if anyone is in need of one.
Before leaving, Louise told
one of her famous jokes about
all the work dads have to do
when barbecuing for Father's
Day, forgetting that the wife
is busy preparing all the extra
fixings in order to make it a
success. We can thank the
Lord it only comes once a
year. Louise also told the res-
idents that she attended the
Cirque Du Soleil in Orlando
with her niece and nephew
from Taunton, Mass. This
French acrobatic team per-
forms this charitable show for
special children with medical
needs.
June 10, ladies morning
coffee, we had nine ladies
present. Arlene Clouston was
the hostess and emcee. At
noon on this same day the
June Ladies Committee host-
ed the Salad Bar LtIncheon.


The tables were all decorated
in red, white and blue and a
miniature American flag
placed at each table setting.
All saluted the flag before
beginning the luncheon.
Before ending the program,
Arlene Clouston read a poem
that told how freedom did not
come free when so many gave
up their lives that we may live
in freedom in America. Jan
Butts read passages about our
early beginnings of the
American flag and the patriot-
ism that was symbolic to all
who respected its presence as
it was displayed years ago and
should continue today.
Following this program, many
of the residents stayed to play
their favorite board games
and cards.

SEBRING '- Other than
surviving a bit of a scare from
Lake Placid .Saturday after-
noon. the Sebring All-Stars
had pretty much rolled
through the Dixie Youth AAA
District 8 Tournament like a
steamroller squashing marsh-
mellows.
But another scare came
their way Monday as
Okeechobee American, a
team they had beaten 10-0
early Saturday, jumped out
with three runs in the first and
two more in the third for a 5-
1 lead.
"That's the earliest and
most we've been behind and
the kids got a little down on
themselves," head coach
Bobby Cannon
Sebring said. "But we
15 told them, hey,
we've got bats
too."
Okeechobee too."
That surely
5 was the case
throughout the
tournament as
the team had averaged more
than 12 runs per game.
And it soon became the
case Monday as the li'l
Streaks rallied in the bottom
of the third.
After Gerig Blackman
walked to lead off the inning,
Rowdy Sebring rocketed a
single to right.
One out later, Connor Cook
beat out* an infield single to
plate Blackman before Trey
Frazier drew a walk to load
the bases.
Alex Gomez drew a run-
scoring base on balls and
Jimmy Peck grounded out to
short, but picked up an RBI,
while an error allowed anoth-
er run to score, and a wild
pitch yet another, to put
Sebring back on top, 6-5.

single in Sebring's 15-5, title-clinching win over Okeechobee
American in the Dixie Youth AAA District 8 Tournament at
the Max Long Recreational Complex Monday. Above right:
Alex Gomez shovels the ball toward second for a first-inning
force out. Right: Gerig Blackman congratulates Jason
Cannon for scoring the 15th, and game-deciding, run to
complete the weekend tournament sweep to the district title.


Jason Cannon came on in
relief after.-an inning opening
walk started the Okeechobee
fourth, and he got the
Americans one, two, three -
setting the stage for the bot-
tom of the inning blitzkrieg.
Not a single out was
recorded as 10 batters came to
the plate and nine crossed it.
Nick Steffieri lead off with
a double to right and moved
to third when Adam
Greenslade's fly ball got lost


in the sun for two bases.
Jordan Austin logged out an
infield hit, driving Steffieri
home and Cook's RBI double
brought home two.
Frazier reached to load the
bases before Gomez blasted a
d'oble to right center to score
Au'stini and Cook.
Peck took one off the arm
to load the bases again and

This time, the hare won

It was much like the old
fable, 'The Tortoise and the
Hare," this weekends U.S.
Open turned out to be.
Except the tortoise's name
was Rocco and the hare was
a Tiger.
Early on the weekend, it
was the genial..happy-go-
lucky, isn't-this-fun Rocco
Mediate who was slowly but
surely moving ahead of the
field on a gorgeous setting
for a golf course that nobody
seemed to be able to solve.
Meanwhile, the steely-
eyed, too-built-to-be-a-
golfer, Tiger Woods was
fighting his way through on a
bum knee.
And to those Tiger bashers
out there who say he was
hamming it up, making it out
to be worse than it was the
question is why? '
Woods doesn't strike me as
someone who unnecessarily
calls attention to himself or
makes excuses.
He's the best golfer the
planet's ever seen and he
knows it.
He's happily married to a
woman so hot I'd need to
glob myself up with two lay-
ers 1f sunscreen if I was
within 10 feet of her, and
he's worth mole than $1 bil-
lion yeah, he's starved for
attention.
Mediate wasn't the picture
of fitness either, the some-
what paunchy, 45-year old
with a bad back.

other with the perpetual
smile of someone who never
dreamed he had a chance.
There they were, the only
two to finish the tournament
with scores under par and
Tiger needing a 12-foot
birdie putt on the final hole
to do just that.
Which, in turn, made it
just the final hole before the
playoff and what more
could we have asked for?
Another full 18 holes after
the prime time, drama-filled
extravaganza we were treated
to on Sunday.
A full round where every
shot from the camera's were
the shots from these two
golfers the people's choice
and the choice of the golfing
gods.

too much time, before the

SPORTS BRIEFS


Today in Sports History.
June 19
In 1960, Arnold Palmer shoots a 280 at Cherry Hills, in Colorado, to win the 60th U.S.
Open
In 1975, Boston outfielder Fred Lynn gets 10 RBIs in a Red Sox 15-1 victory over Tigers.
Oddly, ten years later, to the day, Lynn duplicated that feat.

with as many career victories
as Tiger usually puts up in
part of a calendar year. floun-
dering in his wake.
It seemed just that way
when Woods .went up three
by the turn. but the drama
continued as part of some of
the best televised golf we'll
ever get to see.
A couple bogeys for Tiger.
three straight birdies for the
still glib, gabby and grinning
Rocco, to move a stroke up.
One down on the last hole,
just as he had been on
Sunday, Woods did what
we've come to expect in such
moments a rocket drive
right down the middle.
Mediate found sand and


then the stands, and even
then was still in such a genial
mood that before taking his
drop he joking motioned as if
he were going to toss it onto
the green.
Woods' second shot found
the green, not close enough
for an easy eagle, but making.
for an easy birdie.
Mediate, meanwhile, did a
fine job just to save par, and
after the 18 extra holes, they
still needed at least one more
to decide it.
And as the climax to this
amazing weekend of golf
was, with the oddly, but as it
turned out, perfectly matched
pair the might of Tiger
pushed him to one more par,
while Mediate ended his
fight just a little short.
. There were three winners
this weekend.
Woods, who took his third


U.S. Open and moved ever
closer to Jack Nicklaus'
Major wins record.
There was also Mediate,
who stood toe-to-toe with the
champ and extended him far-
ther than anyone ever has in
such a situation, and much
farther than even he expected
of himself and in so doing
has ensured himself of being
a fan favorite from here on
in.
And then there was us, the
viewing public, who bore
witness to as an astounding
tournament of golf we're
likely to see.
Where even after 18 extra
holes, it still had to go one
more before younger, leaner
and, let's face it, better play-
er edged out the older, plod-
ding, ever-smiling challenger.
You might say he beat him
by a hare.
