Waiting until his 21st birthday and a special eye surgery,

Jacob Ranquist has a new look towards his future


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY

AVON PARK Jacob
Ranquist was wearing glasses by
the time he was 16 months old.
The lenses were the size of
dimes and he broke them all the
time, his father Chuck Ranquist
says.
Congenital eye problems run
in the family. Ranquist's older
brother Micah's eye-
sight is so bad he
attended the Florida
School for the Deaf giv
and Blind.
Without corrections, NO 1
Jacob added, his own
vision is separated hov
blurs of color.
If someone stands Y(
still long enough,
Jacob might be able to
make out a shape. n
Forget about recogniz- nev-
ing anybody. In fact, h,
Ranquist's ability to
see is so-compromised JA
he unconsciously R
developed the habit of RAI
turning his ear toward
a speaker, instead of looking for
eye contact.
For a while in high school -
he graduated from Avon Park in
2005 he was able to use con-
tact lenses. He was even able to
drive. But glasses can only cor-
rect so much, and over time he
lost ground.
First he couldn't play sports,
then he gave up the dream of
becoming a police officer, then


his ideas of college.
Ranquist did have a job at
Winn-Dixie bagging groceries
and collecting carts, which he
was able to keep after gradua-
tion.
But by November of 2007 his
sight had deteriorated to the
point he voluntarily stopped
driving- his lack of vision, he
said, making him a danger to
others.
)on 't The most difficult
aspect of his situation,
e Up. Ranquist said, was
keeping positive and
matter hanging onto hope.
When he was 18 and
w bad still in high school, he
heard exciting news.
OlFT A new treatment had
O* been developed in
ion, Europe, an artificial
er lose lens made out of a new
material called
)pe.' Collamer. The techni-
cal breakthrough meant
COB an artificial, correcting
lens, could be surgical-
NQUIST ly placed over the eye's
faulty natural lens. The
results were said to be excellent.
According to the manufacturer,
STAAR Surgical Company, while
the new lens may not provide
perfect vision by itself every
time, it improves sight enough
that additional correction, glasses
or contact lenses, can make up
the difference. In most cases,
however, the new lens is enough

Questions and answers about

the implantable Collamer lens

Q: What is Collamer?
A: According to its manufacturer, the STAAR Surgical Company, it
is made of a copolymer and collagen, making it biocompatible.

Q: Exactly where is the lens implanted?
A: The lens is placed in the posterior chamber of the eye- behind
the iris (the colored portion of the eye) and in front of the eye's crys-
talline lens. There it rests quietly indefinitely.

Q: How is the lens implanted?
A: A microscopic opening is made with a diamond tipped blade
where the white of the eye meets the colored part. A gel-like substance
is injected into the eye, and the roughly rectangular lens is injected

convention
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
AVON PARK The Avon Park High
School FFA is riding high after a "histo-
ry making" trip to the annual state com-
petition in Orlando, advisor Gary
Dressel said.
Earlier this month, juniors Buddy
Duke and Jerry Lee Wright won their
overall events and the opportunity to
represent Florida at the National
Convention in October.
Duke's entry into proficiency in agri-
cultural services is nearly a decade in the
making.
"When I was 8 years old my granddad
planted a 40-acre grove," he said. "(We)
had to fertilize the trees, I started driving
tractors, and my grandpa's business
grew."
At 12 Duke started mowing the

tion.
"Everything with groves I either do it
or I can do it," Duke said.


His proficiency combined everything

Election supervisor

AVON PARK Highlands
County Supervisor of
Elections Joe Campbell
appeared before the city
council Monday night to ask
for the city's help this elec-
tion cycle.
"Early voting has taken
off," Campbell told the coun-
cil. "The rooms we have used
in the past are too small.
Come November it's going to
be jam packed"
He said state election law is
very specific. He can open an
early voting polling place in
an election office branch
(which the city doesn't have),
a library or city hall.
The council's meeting
chamber, at 123 E. Pine St., is
the only space large enough

Campbell also said he

that his office would assume

watering


restrictions


extended
Special to theI Ncws-Sun
The Southwest Florida
Water Management District's
Governing Board voted unani-
mously today to extend the
current Water Shortage Order,
which restricts lawn watering
throughout the district to one
day per week, through Sept.
30.
The governing board chose
to extend the term of the water
shortage order because
impacts from the two-year
drought continue despite the
start of the annual rainy sea-
son. In particular, regional
public supply systems, includ-
ing Tampa Bay Water and the
Peace River/Manasota
Regional Water Supply
Authority, remain at-risk due
to low storage. Tampa Bay
.Water's supplies have not
returned to pre-drought condi-
tions and the Peace
River/Manasota Regional
Water Supply Authority con-
tinues to rely on two emer-
gency authorizations to help
meet current water demand.
"We need people to contin-
ue to be vigilant," said David
Moore. district executive
director. "We appreciate their
efforts to conserve through the
dry season and we need them
to continue. Now is the time to
try and help our water
resources recover."
One way residents can help
is by reducing their lawn
watering during the summer
rainy season. Residents are
encouraged to skip their
watering day if they've
recently received rain.
The governing board took
into consideration that despite
recent rain, the district contin-
ues to experience depressed
hydrologic conditions.
Alhliough the district's 16-
- county region has received
about five inches of rain so far
this month, this represents
only 67 percent of the normal
amount for June. For June
2006 through May 2008, the
district-wide rainfall deficit is
17.2 inches.
All 16 counties within the
district are experiencing
below-normal groundwater
conditions. In general,
groundwater conditions are
currently categorized as mod-
erately abnormal.
The order includes restric-
tions that apply to the use of
water from public and private
water utilities as well as the
use of all wells and surface
water sources.

Beating victim now


charged with extortion


against attacker


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@ newssun .com
SEBRING A man that
was allegedly beaten in his
home for rent money by his
landlord was arrested over the
weekend.
He was charged with two
felonies for an alleged
attempt to extort money from
his assailant.
Three men were arrested
for the burglary and assault
that supposedly occurred in
late May.
The landlord, Thomas
Ramsey, 46, Avon Park, was
charged with three felonies,
including first degree felony
burglary with assault, and
could potentially face life in
prison.
The assault victim, Roger
Vickery, 38, Sebring, alleged-
ly tried to negotiate a deal
where he would drop the
charges if Ramsey would pay
him $3,000.
When Vickery tried to con-
tact him about the alleged
deal, Ramsey said he couldn't
talk to him because it would
violate his bond.
Instead, he directed
Vickery to his attorney,
William Fletcher.
A meeting was set up
between Vickery and
Fletcher, where Vickery
allegedly said Ramsey agreed
to pay him $3,000 to drop the
charges.
Vickery told Fletcher that
he had permission to make
the deal from the State
Attorney's Office, the arrest
report by Deputy Roger St.
Laurent Jr. said.
Thd State Attorney's Office
was contacted by investiga-
tors and they discovered
Vickery did make an appoint-
ment to discuss the charges
against Ramsey.
Vickery allegedly asked
about a compensation plan
that was practiced in past
years, but was told the plan
no longer existed and the
State Attorney's Office could-
n't enforce such a deal.


Regardless of this informa-
tion, Vickery proceeded to
drop the charges on
Wednesday of last week, left
the State Attorney's Office
and headed directly to
Fletcher's office.
"Vickery produced a copy
of the waiver and asked for
his payment of $3,000," St.
Laurent said.
When he was told the deal
had not yet been approved by
Fletcher, Vickery became
angry and yelled that if he
was not paid by 1 p.m. he
would re-establish the
charges, St. Laurent said.
Vickery allegedly said a
member of the State
Attorney's Office wanted to
see a receipt for the payment
or they would proceed with
the prosecution.
A monitored phone call
was made between Vickery
and Ramsey, where Ramsey
said he needed until Friday to
come up with the money and
Vickery could pick it up at
Fletcher's office.
On Friday, Vickery was
allegedly captured on video
and ,audio recordings by the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office making the transac-
tion.
He was arrested when he
left the office.
After he was read his
Miranda rights, Vickery said
he was going to use the
$3,000 to start his life over in
Alabama, St. Laurent said.
In the original case,
Ramsey, Paul Barnes, 29, and
Donald Shaffer, 36, reported-
ly pulled up to Vickery's
home in a pickup truck and
forced themselves into the
residence.
The three men beat Vickery
while demanding rent money,
including punching him in the
head and kicking him in the .
back id armin, Ramse.y's
arrest report from May 26
said.
Vickery remains in the
Highlands County Jail, held
without bond.

Remembering a friend and colleague


DAN HOEHNE
Sports Editor


Trying times

The last several days have been difficult to bear.
Bad surprises occurring over and over again.
Not only have well known, respected national fig-
ures died suddenly, but people in our own communi-
ty, to whom we have special bonds of affection, have
also been torn from us.
Tim Russert's heart attack. George Carlin's unex-
pected heart disease.
Mason Smoak's air plane crash.
The pain has been sharp; the losses enormous.
Now there is more.
We learned Tuesday that Ric Liljenberg, a reporter
for the News-Sun for at least 10 years mostly cov-
ering education, always writing from his heart had
died of a ruptured aneurysm. He collapsed over the
weekend and slipped into a coma, passing quietly
Monday evening.
Ric will be missed both for his example and for the
pleasure of his company.
He was a man who lived his faith, and rejoiced in
the gift of life the kind of person who lived to the
fullest quietly, and took nothing for granted.
He had left us to try his hand at teaching. Then he
decided to join his sdn and his son's family in
Oregon, moving out to the Portland area in the fall of
2007.
The -news of his death came as such an unwelcome
surprise. Ric was a vigorous, outgoing man in his
early 60s it was a physical shock.
Made the sadder because Ric was one of those peo-
ple who looked for the good and had faith in the
future. He was nice to be around. He will be missed.
His delight in children, and his passion in their
defense, showed in his coverage of the county's
schools especially in his support of the Highlands
County Ag-Venture program in its earliest days.
But Ric's is not the solitary death.
Still there is more.
Jerry Huter, who had slipped into a diabetic coma
down in Moore Haven almost a month ago, has also
passed away.
Jerry was another champion of children.
Deeply involved with the FFA, Jerry served as the
president of the Sebring High School FFA Alumni and'
on the Highlands County Fair Livestock Committee.
A strong supporter of Ag-Venture from the begin-
ning, he served on its board, worked with the stu-
dents, and grilled so much meat, over so many barbe-
cue fires, at so many fundraisers, that people could be
forgiven mistaking him for a chuck wagon wrangler.,
Jerry was the type of man who put his back and
hands into everything he did; another person who was
as liked and appreciated by his friends and co-work-
ers as he was respected.
As staggering as these losses are, however, it is not
just the loss that moves us.
It is also the surprise that accompanies each story:
One second Ric was fine, the next he was on the
ground. One minute Jerry was lying down for a nap,
the next .he was unconscious. One instant Mason's
airplane was up in the air, then it wasn't.
And of course, life changes forever in that instant.
Which is why it is so important to live in the
moment to say your thanks; to hug your loved
ones; to notice the mockingbird in the crepe myrtle,
the swish of the bass in the lake, the falling star in the
night sky.
Feel the rain, listen to the breeze, make someone
laugh,'pass on an idea, read to your children.
Engage, exchange, live, love and laugh.
In other words use your time well it's limited.
Become fulfilled, and the rest will take care of itself
as all of these wonderful, much missed men would
have told you.
They knew.

Girls should wait for Music, singing,
to have children dancing and sharing


Editor:
An open letter to the girls
of Highlands County:
We learned with shock that
18 girls from Gloucester,
Mass. made the terrible deci-
sion to become pregnant with-
out husbands. Children are a
huge responsibility and it
takes two people to success-
fully raise them.
No one person can do what
two can accomplish. A single
mother will either need to
work and neglect her child, or
go on welfare, which is living
on the ragged edge of poverty
and lack of respect. I know,
I've been there.
Oh yes, I was properly
married before becomifig
pregnant, but I chose the
wrong mate. No amount of
love can change another per-
son. My husband left us so
my son grew up without a
father to love and teach him.
It-is so important for a child
to have a father that he or she
can respect.
If a man and woman aren't
committed enough to marry.
they certainly can't be respon-
sible parents. It is the woman
who usually pays the price for
an unplanned pregnancy. If
there isn't that little piece of
paper, it's too easy for the
man to head for the hills,
leaving her holding the baby.
Generally a girl doesn't
plan on becoming pregnant,
but birth control doesn't
always work. Abortion is a
terrible option; it is hard on a
woman's body. It is murder
and some women never get
over the feeling of loss and
guilt.
Too many girls are buying
into the media's portrayal of
women as sex. objects, play-
things, or another notch on
his belt. Girls,. you should be
loved for the person you are,
not someone to be used like
disposable Kleenex.
When you find your special
person to marry, the children
that you have will be your
treasures, not just your
responsibilities.

can unite the world
Editor:
The beat of a drum causes
the heart to coincide with it.
Slow, soft beating of a drum
will cause the heart to beat
slowly and softly. Fast, loud
beating of a drum will cause
the heart to beat harder and
faster.
Although we are all differ-
ent, basically, we are the
same. We eat, sleep, bleed
when we are cut, cry when we
are hurt, we breathe, we live,
then we die. We are only dif-
ferent in the way we think.
It would be-a peculiar
world, if all of us looked
alike, thought alike, dressed
alike and did everything
exactly the same way.
Therefore, we should try to
get along with one another, be
thankful that we do not all
think alike and respect each
other's right to think differ-
ently and to do
If people would see, not
only with their eyes but with
their heart, then other people
and the whole world would
look different than it does.
The world is a beautiful,
wonderful place for all of us
to live in. All that it needs is
for us to appreciate every-
thing it has to offer.
Only when we sow seeds of
love and understanding coop-
eration, will we receive a
great harvest of the same.
Apples do not grow from
planting rocks. The trees
develop their own seeds. The
time old saying is true. "And
as ye sow, so shall ye reap."
A newer saying is also true,
"Wisdom comes with age;
that is, when we allow, it to."
So, if everyone would join
together, listen to music, sing,
dance and share whatever
other people need, we will
eventually be able to unite the
world, the way it was meant
to be.

Smoak a fine young man taken from us much too soon


Usually the ride from my home in
Lake Placid up U.S. 27 through Central
Florida is a pleasant drive. I look for-
ward to the weekends when I can visit
with my younger daughter Tracy and
her daughter, Ciera. We always have a
good time together playing board
games, watching teen movies, or doing
school craft projects.
, But this past weekend was different.
Sad and tragic.
When Tracy and I meet, it's usually a
happy greeting, with smiles and kisses.
This Friday, there were no smiles, and
the first words out of Tracy's mouth
were, "Mom, I have bad news. Mason
died today."
I couldn't believe it. "Stephanie
called to tell me," she said. Stephanie
Moore and Tracy were best friends and
cheerleaders in high school, and they
and Mason had all been in the same
graduating class at Lake Placid High
School. Of course, Tracy and Mason
had been good friends as they grew up.
They both attended Interlake Academy
(now known as Lake Placid Christian
School), shared classes occasionally,
and, because high school lockers are


A View From The Van
Teresa Stein

assigned alphabetically, Tracy Stein and
Mason Smoak had adjoining spaces and
shared many "locker breaks."
"Stephanie said there was a plane
crash," Tracy explained. But there were
not many details known yet. "How terri-
ble for Tracee (Plank) Smoak, Mason's
wife, and their children."
My thoughts also went immediately
to Anne and Ed, Mason's parents, his
brother Edward, and other members of
the family. It had not been too long that
we had seen each other at breakfast in
Main Street America, and Anne had
caught me up with the latest news of the
children and grandchildren.
Our family shared prayers and tears
this weekend for the tragedy which had
befallen our friends and one of
Highlands County's most respected fam-
ilies.
But I tried to think positively, even
though it was very difficult. They were
a Christian family, and that is the first
comfort. Even though I did not know


Mason's grandfather John Smoak, his
wife, Susan, and I were good friends,
and she was always a Christian example
and inspiration to me.
The thing I remember most about
Mason was his beautiful smile. 1 didn't
see him much as the children were
growing up, except at school events. But
when I did, he was always respectful -
and smiling.
Anne and Ed did a good job of rais-
ing their two sons.
The last time I remember seeing that
smile was last week when a newspaper
story had a picture of him and Matt
Elliott receiving awards from the
Florida Agriculture Commissioner
Charles Bronson. That's how I shall
remember Mason.
I was not at home this past weekend,
but I know the people of I-lighlands
County. I know that they rallied around
the family to comfort and assist in any
way possible. And to share their memo-
ries of a fine young man, taken from his
earthly home much too soon.

longtime reporter of local news.


When Ric
Liljenberg came to
me last fall and said
he was thinking
about moving to
Oregon to be near ,
his son, grandchil-
dren and his parents,
I knew there was no
holding him back.
That's just how he
was once he set
his mind, there was
no holding him
back.


At
Random
Romona
Washington


He said he didn't have
much and could get it in all
in his car. The next I knew,
his daughter-in-law Dawn
had flown down and they
were on their way across
country. He took him all of
three days to make up his
mind, pack up the car and be
on his way.
Ric lived a simple life. He
didn't want for'much, had.
everything he felt he needed.
He knew he had God's loving
hand in everything he did.
His faith was incredible and
that's how he lived life by
putting everything he did in
God's hands.
I often admired that about
Ric. Knowing that's how we
are supposed to be, I have
the problem of always taking
things back before God has
done with it what he's going
to. I shared that with Ric and
he told me not to give up.
The phone call I got
Monday afternoon shook me.
Honestly, I can't even tell
you who it was that called to
tell me that Ric had suffered
an aneurysm Friday and had
been taken'off life support
Saturday. I sat at my desk
stunned before doing one of
those things that Ric loved to
do ... getting on the Internet
to find the church in Oregon
where Ric was accompanist.
The news was confirmed and
I was put in touch with the
family.
Ric was a healthy man. He
smoked and we both agreed
that wasn't something that
was good for him. But, I
can't recall Ric ever bringing
in a bag from a fastfood
chain with his lunch inside.
Instead, he loved to cook and
always cooked healthy meals
for himself.
In fact, Ric was a cook at
Placid Lakes Country Club
before coming to work at the
News-Sun in 1995. And, just
before he moved to Oregon
he was a caretaker for a fam-
ily friend, which meant part
of his job was cooking.
Ric died Monday evening
at the age of 63. He not only
was a colleague, but also a
dear friend to those of us
who worked with him.
Ric was an accomplished
.reporter. He had worked in
Minnesota as a newspaper
reporter and a radio broad-
caster. He had one of those
voices that belonged on the
radio.
He loved to play the key-
boards. He was the organist
at St. Francis of Assisi in
Lake Placid, taught piano
lessons to those who wanted
to learn two things that
followed him to Oregon. He
was the accompanist at
Canby United Methodist
Church in Canby, Ore., and
also had some students for
private lessons.
Another one of Ric's loves
was the weather. It didn't
matter what kind of system
was brewing where ever on
the globe, Ric was informed.
He shared stories of the
African sand storms impact-


ing our hurricanes
before the story
broke in national
news. He watched
and learned, shared
and taught.
Cindy Marshall,
who was Ric's
assistant editor here,
said, "He should
have 6een a meteor-
ologist the way he
would study the
complexities of the
weather to its fullest


whether it was a hurricane
brewing in the east or light-
ning striking in the west,. He
knew all about Florida's
drought and how it affected
the environment, especially
the lakes. Man, did he love
studying the lakes and learn-
ing all about their inner qual-
ity or lack of quality.
There won't be a storm
that goes by that I won't
think of Ric as I hear the
click, click, click of the rain
on a window pane. It will
remind me of him typing
away on his keyboard in
heaven looking for that per-
fect adjective."
Ifi fact, Dawn told me
Monday that Ric had been
outside walking and looking
at the clouds when he col-
lapsed Friday. He was doing
what he loved to do.
The only thing he loved
more than cooking, writing,
playing keyboards or the
weather was probably people.
He loved people. It was that
love for people that helped
him with his career as a jour-
nalist and helped push him to
become a teacher after leav-
ing the newsroom. In fact, it
was that love for people that
drove him to take a job at a
coffee shop for a couple of
hours a day shortly before
his death.
Cindy described Ric as the
type.of-writer who always
had many words to share
with the readers. "Matter of
fact, we used to joke with
Ric that his keyboard had
more adjectives on it than
any other keyboard in the .
building. We swore his was
built with an adjective key,
but he chose them eloquent-
ly."
Dawn wanted to make sure
that the people of Highlands
County knew how much he
loved it here. "He loved the
cottage where he lived by .the
lake. Out of everywhere he
lived, he loved Highlands
County the most," she said.
Cindy also remembered his
affection for the county,
especially Lake Placid. She
called him Mr. Lake Placid
when it came to promoting
its beauty and culture. "There
was not a mural that went up
in Lake Placid that Ric did
not have complete knowledge
about and would share it with
the News-Sun readers," she
said.
Ric is survived by his par-
ents, Richard and Virginia,
who are 100 and 98 respec-
tively. He is also survived by
his sons, Rich and Scott, and
seven grandchildren that he
loved to talk about.
Anyone who would like to
send cards of sympathy can
send them to Rich and Dawn
Liljenberg, 15091 S. Crystal
Court, Oregon City, OR
97045. They will be sure to
share the cards and thoughts
with their grandparents, who
will not be able to attend any
services.

VISION

by itself.
Ranquist and his family
looked into this treatment
and met disappointment.
Because the lenses had
been developed outside of
the United States, and the
Federal Drug Administration
has not completed its
approval, no one under the
age of 21 is allowed to use
them.
Also, the breakthrough is
so new, almost no one here is
familiar with it.
Which is where Dr. T.
Hunter Newsom enters the
picture.
Newsom is an opthalmnolo-
gist who prides himself on
staying on the cutting edge.
His practice, Newsom Eye
and Laser Center, has been
doing Lasik surgery long
enough for him to have
developed a respected reputa-
tion, not just locally, but
nationally.
Unfortunately, as much of
a breakthrough as Lasik sur-
gery is, it cannot help every-
one. So when Newsom
learned of newer advances
coming out of Switzerland,
and that the company had
opened for business in
California, he looked into the
Collamer technology.
At one point he went to
the Dominican Republic,
learning and practicing the
technique there before the
FDA would allow it in the
States.
The advances, Newsom
said, lie in the material the
lens is made of, and the fact
that the lens is implanted
behind the iris, becoming a
part of the eye without

into the eye, in front of the
iris. The surgeon then unfolds
the lens and tucks each corner
of it under the iris. The gel is
tlien removed. The Iauts-, so
- -small they need no stitches,
heal rapidly. Most patients,
the manufacturer says, see
immediate results following
the approximately 15 minute
procedure.

Q: What if the patient's
vision changes over time?



GALA

up in an area where he or she
can autograph T-shirts.
The proceeds from this
year's Gala events will benefit
three projects: the Cardiac
Cath Lab program at Florida
Hospital Heartland Medical
Center; the Operating Room
campaign at Florida Hospital
Wauchula; and the Emergency
Department campaign at
Florida Hospital Lake Placid.
Jamie Bateman, executive
director of the Foundation,
said organizers were very
excited about getting Michael
W. Smith in Highlands County
to perform for the 14th annual
Gala. She said it had been a
few years in the making. "He
had actually started off with
Amy Grant, as part of her
band., and of course she per-
formed here a couple of years
ago for the Gala. Then he
started opening for her and
how he is on his own,"
Bateman said.
Something new added to
this year's Gala is a Winner's
Choice drawing. Bateman said
tickets will be sold, also
beginning Monday, for a
chance to win either a new Sea
Doo, from Lake Placid
Marine, or a new golf cart
from Go Daddy Golf Carts.
The drawing will take place
Nov. 18.
Anyone who would like to
donate to this year's silent
auction at the Gala dinner
should contact Judy Lee
Brown or Bateman at 402-
5525. Registration forms for
the 5K Run/Walk are available
at the Foundation office or
from the Web site,
www.FHHD.org. Tickets for
the Michael W. Smith concert
can also be. purchased from
the Web site.


changing its shape at all.
While it is meant to be
permanent, it can be
removed.
When the Ranquists
learned about the new lens in
2005 -it had been prc-mar-
kcl approvNcd in liurope in
1)t), they went to
Newsom. But Ranquist was
only 18. 1-lc was told he
would have to wait three
years.
"I didn't see eye to eye
with Newsom at first, if'
you'll pardon the pun,"
Ranquist said. "But he was
wonderful, one of the top
rated (doctors doing Lasik
surgery) in the country, and
he and everyone treated us
like family."
No sooner had he turned
21 on Valentine's Day, than
Chuck Ranquist was on the
phone, calling Newsom, call-
ing the Division of Blind
Services', calling anyone who
could help.
The procedure was con-
ducted as out-patient surgery
on June 10 and Jacob
Ranquist's additional correc-
tive lenses both glasses
and contacts are on order.
Best of all, from the
moment of the surgery, even
without the additional correc-
tions, Ranquist can already
see enough to recognize peo-
ple and walk around freely;
with the further corrections
he'll be back to reading,
maybe even driving.
He is once again thinking
about college and a career in
forensic physcology.
But that isn't the message
he wants to leave.'
"Don't give up," he said
forcefully. "No matter how
bad your vision, never lose
hope."


A: The lens, while meant to
be permanent, may be
replaced. Glasses and contact
lenses may also be worn with
the artificial lenses.


FFA
Continued from 1A
"It shows a person's job
skills and what they have been
doing with their FFA knowl-
edge," Dressel said.
With the overall victory,
Duke will be competing at the
national level and has a chance
to be invited to the National
Convention if he makes the
final four.
"He will be competing
across the nation, so it's tough;
it's real tough," Dressel said.
"He will be competing against
those Midwest farm boys -
they have some pretty good
proficiencies out there."
Duke is excited about
nationals, and he's looking
forward to another chance to
compete at the state level his
senior year. He plans on enter-
ing with a proficiency again
next year, but he can't submit
the same resume.
"I'm gonna do cows next
year," he said. "1 probably
don't know as much about
cows as I do orange groves,
but I try to learn a lot because
I want to do both of them
when I graduate from col-
lege."
While Duke's win was a
decade in the making, for
Wright, it may have felt that
way.
' Wright took top honors in
extemporaneous speaking
after two years of being the
runner-up.
"If you came in as a strong
ninth-grader you would win,
but the older you are the more
experience you have," he said.
"I'm glad it took me a couple
of years to get first."
Contestants randomly
choose three topics from a
pool of 12 and then have their
pick from one of the three.
They range from various
agriculture-related issues, pop-

itics, FFA events and curricu-
lum.
"There's more art to it than
actual academics,". Dressel
said. "You have to prepare a
speech within 30 minutes."
Wright's first topic was the
role of FFA in an agricultural
academy.
"I kind of emphasized our
county has thrown around the
idea of a career academy at the
college," Wright said. "A com-
plete ag education would have
FFA, supervised agriculture
experiences and classroom
instruction."
Later that night Wright
found out for the third year in
a row he was in the top two
spots. The two finalists then
compete head to head for top
honors. For the final round,
Wright chose to argue whether
genetically modified organ-
isms were safe for the
American consumer.
"I've learned there is no rule
in the rule book on what topics
(judges) are gunning for, but a
lot of the old-time advisors tell
you that it's almost taboo to
talk about the.FFA," he said.
"They want statistics. I found

Wright argued that if farm-
ers were willing to move on to
the next level and start using
GMOs, the consumer could
trust they weren't harmful.
"I hit on 'if we can't trust
the farmers, who can we
trust?'" he said.
Wright's argument earned
him the opportunity to take his
talents to compete at the
national level.
"I was ecstatic, very excit-
ed," Wright said. "They yank
you to the front of the stage. In
the heat of the moment I'm
sure some people would
explain my look as priceless."
The APHS FFA also brought
students to compete in
Parliamentary Procedure and
made the final four out of 12
others at the state level.
"The fact they made it to the
final four is something they
have never done," Dressel
said. "You have to know your
stuff to get that far."

Lake Placid Art League
LAKE PLACID -- The
Lake Placid Art League held
its regular monthly meeting
on June 18 at the Cultural
Center on Dal Hall
Boulevard. The program was
a "Show and Tell."
Students of Llwellen
Rinald presented their work in
pastels, talking about various
interesting features of the
pieces. A student of Maria
Lorant produced a delicate
greeting card done in
Pergamano, or embossing on
parchment. Another member
of the group showed her cro-
cheted pieces, each done in
the same pattern, but with
increasingly smaller thread
and needles. The piece done
on the smallest needle elicited
oh's and ah's from the audi-
ence. A lovely tapestry piece
concluded the work by mem-
bers.
Art students from Lake
Placid High School were spe-
cial guests. They also showed
and discussed several of their
creations, which were original
and inspiring.
Membership in the art
league is open to everyone,
regardless of the level of tal-
ent or the medium of expres-
sion.

members recited the Tops
Pledge and Gerry Schlamp
opened Tuesday's meeting.
The group welcomed Yvonne
Hall, visiting the area from
California. She is the sister of
member Lillian Byers.
Congratulations to Best
Loser. Teresa Messer, for her
4/-pound loss. She also won
the Red Box money. Dolores
Woolover took the Pound
package, which contained a
large melon. Another layer of
tissue from the attendance gift
was unwrapped by June
Scherlacher.


Linda Luke presented the
program. Members discussed
how salt can affect health and
blood pressure. As we get
older, we lose some taste
buds, which reduces our sense
of taste. To compensate we
tend to use more salt to make
our food taste better. This
increases the potential for
additional health problems.
Further discussion on fitness
programs highlighted the
advantage of having good
friends in the group to add
support to your programs.
Tops FL 99 meets every -
Tuesday from 6-7 p.m. at
Atonement Lutheran Church

SEBRING RECREATION CLUB
Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING Shuffleboard
thought for today: Shooting a
high number means that your
disc is so close to one of the
horizontal lines that your
opponent cannot use your disc
for a back stop and score with
it. A high number is very diffi-
cult to shoot because your disc
must stop 6 inches beyond the
line. If you miss and your disc
stops on the line, it then
becomes a good backstop for
your opponent to score with.
This is a good way to steal a
hammer.
Should you have any ques-
tions about shuffleboard, the
do's and don't, ask John
Bushee for the correct answer.
We all know how competi-
tive George Kisel is at sports;
well his granddaughter is fol-
lowing in his footsteps.
Waverly's girls went to the
Section IV State Qualifier
Thursday with the hope of
sending athletes to the New
York State Track and Field
Championships in multiple
events. The Lady Wolverines
completed that goal, with
Erika Kisel advancing in the
200-meter dash and the 1,600
relay team also moving on.
Kisel ran the first final and
punched her individual ticket
to states in very impressive'
fashion. George will teach her


shuffleboard, if possible, I bet.
Maria Sheehan comes from
Lake Placid, arrives early to
set up for the dance, has a
smile for you and wants more
people to dance.
Charlotte Sanders is getting
to be a familiar face at the
courts. Carl Wile is back in
action at this time so we
should be hearing about him.
John Bushee left us for a trip.
Lisa LaCotti has been sick for
four weeks now. She told me
that "life goes on" and she was
going to get better on her own.
Let's remember Joe and Lisa
LaCotti in our prayers.
True story about shuffle-
board in Avon Park. I was ask-
ing a younger man about try-
ing the game of shuffleboard
with me. He asked if I shuffled
in Avon Park and I told him
both Sebring and Avon Park.
He said that his son that is in
school in Avon Park was talk-
ing about "Yankee Stadium" to
him the other day. He ques-
tioned the name because he is
from New York. Some school
children refer to the shuffle-
board courts in Avon Park as
"Yankee Stadium." I, for one,
think this is a good name for
the Avon Park Senior
Activities Center. Leave it to
children to come up with good
ideas.
Call Ed Straub with ques-
tions or ideas for the club at
386-0245. See John Bushee
about shuffleboard Monday,


Wednesday and Saturday at 6
p.m. in back of the Sebring
Police Station, 333

LAKE PLACID June 16,
Coed coffee hosts were John
and Lena Chapman along with
their daughter, Carol, who cel-
ebrated John's 80th birthday
by sharing a beautifully deco-
rated sheet cake with all the
residents to have with their
coffee. Park Manager George
Susco began by wishing all the
fathers, grandfathers and
great-grandfathers a happy
Father's Day. He reminded all
that we are still on a one-day
watering restriction therefore
if we do have a heavy down
pour, please skip watering in
order to help with our water
shortage. They checked the
water Sunday and the pressure
was way down mainly because
many had their sprinklers
going. He also told the resi-
dents that the large pool may
be closed for a few days for
maintenance. He told the resi-
dents that his wife Jodi is still
making inspections to see that
residents have cleared items
that can be hurled and lifted
during a hurricane, so please
assist her by taking care of this
as it is for our own protection.
Louise Smith, our emcee,


read the list of people celebrat-
ing their birthdays June 15-21
and asked Virginia Tharp to
lead us into song. We had John
Chapman and Duane Dean cel-
ebrating their birthdays. Next,
she read couples celebrating
their anniversary and we had
Ken and Jeannie Sylvia cele-
brating their 50th wedding
anniversary. Our best wishes
go out to all.
Bonnie Allen asked that we
keep Carol Oldham in our
thoughts and prayers along
with Loretta Kolifrath, Rev.
Jim Leach and Larry Plate.
We are all happy to see Toni
Price at home.
Joy Dean announced that
two of our areas have 'not
received the information
regarding items we should
have ready to go in the event
of a hurricane. She also men-
tioned that she is checking on
two new facilities that are in
our area and might be consid-
ered if we do have a hurricane
provided we can obtain their
permission.
Jan Butts announced that
the committee has tickets on
sale for the carry-in dinner
which is Thursday, June 26.
The cost is $1; bring a covered
dish to share with your neigh-
bors. Please bring a picture of
your husband along with his
children as our theme is to
honor fathers.
Doris Bierstiene asked if
anyone had any wool they


would like to donate, since
Marge Perry makes slipper
foot warmers for the patients
in nursing homes and hospi-
tals.
Resident news: Keith
Clouston drove down from
Lakeland to spend Father's
Day with his parents, Bob and
Arlene Clouston. George and
Barbara's two daughters,
along with their husbands and
his oldest grandson Jeremy
and his wife Misty, all met at
the Brighton Bingo Casino to
play Bingo with their
father/grandfather.
June 17, Jan Butts was the

'There's blood in my eye'


There isn't a week
that goes by that an
eye doctor doesn't
get a call from a
patient saying,
"There's blood on
my eye!" While this
can have a rather
frightening appear-
ance, it is usually
quite benign. Most
of the time someone
else notices the
blood red appearance
on the eye first.


Focal
Point
Dr. Valerie
Moulds


The cause of the redness is
exactly what it looks like -
a broken blood vessel on the
surface of the eye is hemor-
rhaging and blocking the
view of the sclera. This is
what is known as a subcon-
junctival hemorrhage. It may
be the result of coughing or
straining too hard, hyperten-,
sion (high blood pressure),
trauma, taking blood thinners
(i.e. coumadin, aspirin, or
vitamin E), or a bleeding dis-
order. Laughing or sneezing
too hard, being constipated,
vomiting, or lifting too much
weight can also cause a blood
vessel to break.
If a patient has a history of
recurring subconjunctival
hemorrhages over a short
period of time, the eye doctor
will order blood work to
determine if the patient has
some type of bleeding disor-


der. This is rarely
necessary.
While no treat-
ment is required for
this type of hemor-
rhage to resolve,
artificial tear drops
have proven benefi-
cial for relieving any
mild to moderate
discomfort associat-
ed with the condi-
tion. A cold com-
press applied to the
affected eye twice


daily for 10 minutes can also
be helpful. In addition, any
elective use of aspirin or vita-
min E should be discontinued
for three to four days to help
with resolution of the hemor-
rhage. Patients who have
been prescribed blood thin-
ners should check with the
prescribing doctor prior to
discontinuing any medica-
tions on their own.
Subconjunctival hemor-
rhages usually clear on their
own within seven to 10 days.
Larger hemorrhages may take
several weeks to clear.
Patients should let their eye
doctor know if the blood does
not clear completely, or if the
condition repeats itself, as
blood work may be neces-
sary.
This information is not intend-
ed to treat, cure or diagnose
your condition.

Official Tour de France guide



to help sort it all out


Open and Shutt
Kevin J. Shutt
It's been an interesting few
years for professional
cycling.
It's not particularly popu-
lar here and typically is cov-
ered by the mainstream
media only in the few weeks
before, during and after the
annual Tour de France in
July.
Take this column, for
example.
Lance Armstrong ensured
plenty of American interest
when he conquered testicular
cancer then won seven
straight Tours, considered by
most to be the single tough-
est (definitely the most popu-
lar) road race.
Floyd Landis continued
America's interest by first
winning the Tour in 2006 and
second by testing positive for
performance enhancing
drugs.
Despite appeals, he lost,
the title.
In 2007, would-be Tour
victor Michael Rasmussen
was yanked from the race
when his team's sponsor
learned he might have avoid-
ed random drug testifig by
lying about his whereabouts
between races.
And now, the 2008 Tour de
France will begin July 5
without last year's defending
champ, Alberto Contador.
He won the 2007 Tour as a
member of Team Discovery
Channel, which no longer
exists.
Contador joined Team
Astana, along with several
other former Discovery


members.
Even Astana's new "direc-
tor sportif" Johan Bruyneel
(who was there for each of
Armstrong's seven wins and
Contador's first tour victory)
used to be a member of
Discovery.
Though the team is under
new management and the
troubled riders have been
booted, Tour organizers
banned the team, and thus
the defending champion.
What does all this mean
for the 2,212-mile race
spread across 21 stages with


20 teams vying for a single
first-place podium position?
Well, VeloNews' is a great
place to start and finish the
tour with.
With 226 pages, the offi-
cial guide is full of pictures
and information to increase
the heart rate of veteran race
fans while helping the new
ones better understand
what's going on.
From analyzing the
'climbers and sprinters to
explaining each stage of the
race, the special-edition
magazine has something to


read before, during and after
the legendary race.
Subscribers to' VeloNews
receive the guide automati-
cally. It's also available via
velogear.corn.
A call to Books-A-Million,
revealed the one-pound mag-
azine isn't available on their
newsstand, despite contrary
information from a
VeloNews press release, nor
does the local bicycle shop
carry what essentially is the
best source of portable infor-
mation during the Tour de
France


Winning me over? No, but bringing

me back is miracle enough


Now, I'm not a soccer fan
by any means.
That's not to say I dislike
it to any great degree.
It's just one of those sports
that I never really have got-
ten into, at least for the sport
itself.
Like many Americans, I
guess I just don't get it and
don't find it overly exciting
or interesting.
I will say, that being at a
game does amp it up at least
a bit, as I've realized from
covering high school games.
I also did have a chance to
see a match many years back
when I was visiting a college
friend who had been and
exchange student, in Finland.
At the Helsinki Olympic
Stadium my Finnish friend
Mikko, took me to a match
between Finland and
Germany and, while I had lit-
tle connection to what I was
watching, it did strike me
that this was a big deal there.
And that's kind of the odd
thing about being in Europe.
Here, we talk in terms of
state to state, or city to city
- Chicago's playing New
York, or Dallas is playing
Tampa Bay.
But across the pond, as I
got the full realization of that
night, they talk in terms 'of
country to country.
One whole country that
speaks one language is play-
ing this whole other country
that speaks a whole other
language.
That in itself raised the
magnitude of it quite a bit
and I will admit I was quite
awed with the level of inten-
sity, the passion of the fans
surrounding me in this mam-
moth stadium.
Somehow Baltimore squar-
ing off against Atlanta didn't
seem like quite that big a
deal, by comparison.
So I at least got a sense of
how much'the rest of the
world is into soccer, even if
it didn't do too much to sway
me to get into the sport more.
But with the 2008 Euro
tournament going on, I was
reminded of that passion,
especially now since Turkey

~%CI1Li%


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne


has made it to the semifinals
and I keep hearing the com-
mercial promoting the
upcoming broadcasts.
In it, announcers can be
heard exclaiming after the
team's most recent win, "It's
another Turkish miracle!"
Sounds exciting enough,
but how many other Turkish
miracles have there been?
I guess you could include
Noah's Ark, but that's not
exactly something they
pulled off.
Noah just happened to be
floating over the country
when he settled upon Mount
Ararat.
The soccer team is on a
roll, apparently, but they'll
likely need another miracle
as they face a favored
German team today, while
Spain squares off against
Russia.on Thursday.
I suppose I'll probably
catch some of the Turkey-
Germany game today, as
Wednesday's are generally a
pretty free day for me, and
since the Cubs-Orioles game
isn't going to be on any
national broadcast that I'll be
able to see.
Then again, remembering
the excitement and intensity I
felt as two countries faced
off on the pitch years ago, I
think I'd have to check in on
today's game regardless of
what else I'd be able to
watch.
Which might, in and of
itself, be Turkey's latest mir-
acle.

Netherlands soccer team
