AVON PARK This story
involves a charge of betrayal
and very real heartbreak, but
also persistence, faith and
rebirth.
The charge of betrayal is of
the worst kind: A pastor
accused of double-crossing
his congregation, stealing
from it, sowing seeds of dis-
cord, turning parishioner-
against parishioner, and going
so far as to set fire to an
office, located right next to
the sanctuary.
Those who have survived
his tenure as pastor at-First
United Methodist Church of
Avon Park say Robert Thorn
had nothing less than the
murder of the church in his
mind.
Sept. 10, instead of Bible
study or a service, members
of the congregation gathered
in their sanctuary to listen to

News-Sun staff report
SEBRING It took the
Sebring Police Department
just 13 minutes to appre-
hend a convicted armed
robber who was charged
with robbing the Cindy's
Hallmark store in Sebring
Square Monday morning.
"They did a good job,"
Sebring Police Department
Commander Steve Carr
said of his officers. "We
had some good witnesses
that were key to the case
and it was some good
police work."
According to reports, the
robbery call came in at
10:12 a.m. after the manag-
er of the Winn Dixie in the
same shopping center
found the Cindy's
Hallmark store clerk with
her hands tied behind her
back.
The Hallmark clerk told
police that a tall, dark-


skinned black man had
walked in the store, told her
to lock the door and
showed her a gun that was
stuck in the waistband of
his pants. The robber, who
wore a black stocking on
his head, also reportedly
told her he would kill her if
she didn't do what he said.
The vic-
tim said that
the robber

SEBRING Greater

Saturday's inaugural 5k

Chet Brojek, who's
noticed a resurgence of

suggested the fundraiser.
"We decided to do it
because it would be a great
way to promote our local


businesses," Chamber
President and Chief

Pallone said Tuesday.
As an aspect of the "Be

SEBRING County commission-

mosquitoes from others across the state
who specialize in their eradication.
Earlier this month the board was
briefed by Parks and Recreation
Director Vickie Pontius about the last
spraying after the hurricanes of 2004.
. The meeting included guest speakers

Dr. Roxanne Connelly, a professor at

the Lee County Mosquito Control
District T. Wayne Gale, and the presi-

Frank Clarke.
Lee County Mosquito Control is an
independent taxing district with seven
commissioners and a $15 million budg-


et, Gale said, to the gasps and laughs of
those in attendance.
There are many aspects to his opera-
tions, which mainly include chemicals
to combat mosquitoes both in the lar-
vae and adult stages of the life cycle.
"The number one is surveillance," he
said. "You have to know what's out
there."


Current data on mosquito population
specific to Highlands County has not
been collected, but the three specialists
agreed it was important.
There are nearly 80 different types
of mosquitoes in Florida and different
approaches to fight them.
One of the biggest differences is the
way females lay their eggs. Some lay

Highway Park shooting


News-Sun staff report
LAKE PLACID The
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office has made an arrest in
an Sept. 7 shooting on
Anderson Street in Avon
Park.
Elbert McFarlane Heron,
28, of 130 Zion St. in Lake
Placid, was arrested Friday
and charged with
attempted first-
degree murder, firing
a weapon in public
and two counts of
firing into an occu-
pied dwelling or
vehicle. H
Nobody was
injured in the shooting,
which reportedly was
sparked by an argument, but
there was a two-month-old
baby in a car that was struck
by a bullet, which came in
through the trunk and exited
the car through the rear-
window brake light abut 6
to 10 inches above the
baby's head.
Investigators also found a
bullet hole in the house and
two more bullet holes in
another car parked in the
front yard.
According to arrest

reports, Heron sent a text
message to his boss on Sept.
7 saying he needed the next
day off of work. When he
came into work on Sept. 8,
Heron allegedly told
his boss he had been
approached by
another man about a
problem with the vic-
tim. Heron said he
drove to somebody
else's house and they
ron
"pulled a gun on him
and tied to cock it," the
report said.
Heron told his boss that
he went to his car, took out
his AK-47 assault rifle, put
a clip in it and began firing.
Investigators reported
finding eight shell casings
in the area where Heron's
car was parked and the vic-
tims were able to identify
Heron as being at the scene
at the time of the shooting,
and saw him pull a long,
black gun out of his car and
shoot it before they dropped
to the ground.

What's all the buzz about?

Free mosquito pellets


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING A mosqui-
to pellet giveaway is sure
to create a little buzz.
That's what Fred Jones,
owner of Heartland
Exterminating, hopes.
"We're getting tons of
calls," office manager
Rachel Durrance said.
"People don't know what
to do."
Durrance referenced a
recent Highlands County
government initiative that
distributed 100 pellets.
She said Jones will
Match that Friday with 500
pellets, up to three per per-
son, no strings attached.
At $20 for three pellets
and based on some rudi-
mentary number crunch-
ing, that's a $3,333 value.
The donut-hole sized
"BT Pellets" are dissolved
in water one per 1,000
square feet to kill mos-
quito larva.
Yet, Durrance said, the
chemical is an environ-
mentally green product
that isn't harmful to fish,
birds and other wildlife.
"They break up pretty
:easily," she said, explain-
ing the pellets can be cus-
tom-sized for water
troughs, bird baths, fish
ponds and other standing


water needing treatment.
The giveaway is 4-6
p.m. Friday at Heartland
Exterminating's office,
938 State Road 17 North,
around the corner from
Blue Crab restaurant.
Local radio station
WWOJ (99.1 FM) will
have live remote to keep
the buzz alive.
However, to kill the
buzz of the pesky blood-
suckers, Durrance recom-
mended a combination of
larvacide (via the free pel-
letsi and treatment of
shrubbery and external
walls, which Jones' com-
pany also provides for a
fee.
"They tend to last six to
eight weeks," Durrance
said.
In addition to ridding a
property of unnecessary
standing water and using a
personal mosquito repel-
lent, Durrance recom-
mended avoiding being
outdoors during the feed-
ing frenzies at dawn and
dusk.
And, if you have to be
out, cover up bare skin.
Those who accept free
pellets, because it's a pesti-
cide, must sign a document
that they will use it as
directed. Call Durrance,
382-6277.

Electrifying

invention

saving city

money in AP
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK The city
has joined an increasing num-
ber of municipalities, busi-
nesses and homeowners who
are installing KVAR units
into their electrical systems.
The units, which are mar-
keted and installed by Central
Florida KVAR Inc., are ener-
gy optimizers designed to
maximize the efficiency of an
inductive electrical motor, the
CEO of the company Jack
Turbeville says. CEO in his
case stands for chief electri-
cal officer.
Turbeville adds that a side
benefit is that the unit helps
an electrical motor run cooler
thereby increasing its life
span.
Simplified, here's how it
works:
Inductive electrical motors
operate because wire,
wrapped around an axle that
spins, creates electrical cur-
rent. The size of the windings
determines how much current
is created.
Because energy fields
expand and restrict, the elec-
tricity that runs along trans-
mission and delivery lines
tends to ebb and flow. For
this reason electrical motors
are typically over wound,
meaning they are built to cre-
ate more electricity than is
needed. This is so the motors
can absorb surges when they
occur.
But it also means motors
fluctuate between creating
more energy than is needed
- which goes to waste -
and having to draw more
energy from the power com-
pany when not enough elec-
tricity is available.
The KVAR unit, contained
in a small gray box, is
installed on the load side of
the breaker box that is on -
the customes,- side '-df the
meter where it acts as a
capacitor.
Capacitors absorb and
store excess electricity. They
then discharge the stored
energy back where it came
from when it is needed.
In other words, a KVAR
unit keeps the flow of energy
going through a motor at an
even rate, and keeps energy
in the house to be reused
when needed.
A specific example may
help to understand how that
helps the customer.
Turbeville and Jeff Sims, a
field technician, were out at
the city's wastewater plant
Wednesday sizing KVAR
units for each of two three-
phase inductive motors that

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


Rising to the challenge of


the Founding Fathers


T oday is the 221st anniversary of the signing of the
U. S. Constitution.
That occurred in Philadelphia in 1787.
Radical in its day, the constitution outlined in detail a
form of government meant to protect the individual from
the many, while binding diverse states into a whole that
could act in concert when necessary.


Most important was the conscious
effort to balance powers between three
branches of government: Representatives
from each state who are charged with
making laws and setting budgets; an
administrator with a cabinet who admin-
isters the laws and acts as head of state;
and a Supreme Court to oversee the other
two branches to ensure that the laws and
leadership which develop conform to the
rules set down in the Constitution.
We tend to forget, more than two cen-
turies later, how much this approach
turned the world on its ear.
While the absolute power of kings had
long been on the wane, the idea that com-
mon men and not a grounded aristocracy
could be trusted to make policy decisions
affecting everyone was still terrifying for
many.
So much so that in the beginning the
concept of "democracy for all" was actu-
ally kept to a very small circle white
men of property; and other safeguards
against the perceived danger of chaos
were created the electoral college and
the Senate for example.


Of the 79 delegates appointed to the
convention, 55 joined in 17 weeks of
debate to create the body of the docu-
ment that is the portion devoted to
who does what, when.
Rhode Island was the only state that
did not send representatives.
One delegate, George Mason from
Virginia, was very disappointed in the
end result. Not that he objected to the
form of government laid out, but he wor-
ried there were no protections for indi-
vidual citizens built into the document.
The division of labor, he agreed, laid
out a government much superior to that
of a monarchy, but the people were still
vulnerable to overreaching power.
Mason was not alone in his concern,
although it took two years for Congress
to gather in New York City and address
the issue.
Perhaps the greatest genius of the
Constitution was its creators' foresight
and understanding that nothing remains
the same over time.
By including a process for change -
the amendment system the founders


turned a static document into something
alive, flexible and able to survive.
Which is how the Bill of Rights was
added to the Constitution. Many argue
that those first 10 amendments are its
heart and most important part.
It took enormous effort, courage and
compromise to succeed in this creation.
Discussions were held in absolute secre-
cy; guards kept the curious back.
Historians report fresh dirt was spread on
the cobblestones outside to muffle sound
so the delegates could better concentrate.
Differences abounded, some of them
intense. The issue of a central, federal
government, versus states' rights was
even more explosive than today; and a
compromise over slavery led to the
shameful decision to count (for the pur-
poses of apportioning representatives)
"other persons" as only 3/5ths of a man.
Women didn't count at all.
Since 1791, according to About.com,
over 10,000 amendments have been pro-
posed, of which only 21 have been
adopted.
But one of those has corrected the
enormity of slavery and the other given
women the right to vote.
The key thing to remember on this
important day, we think, is that others
before us have risen to the challenge of
improving life and making it as fair as it
is possible to be in this world of ours
where only people can create fairness
and so few do.

A Heart's
Journey
Janelle Dennison

Focus our

prayers on

Washington
Well folks, we've seen the
candidates for presidency
accept their nominations.
And I must admit both are
sounding pretty good.
First I'd like to say this is
an opinion column and my
views do not represent the
views of the paper.
It's time to make that fate-
ful decision ... who will you
vote for? Time to take a
stand for what you believe in
and how you feel it can be
best accomplished. Of
course, we know no matter
what the candidate hopes to
accomplish, he has to answer
to Congress, etc. and no can-
didate makes their own deci-
sion without the input of
their cabinet, etc. This is a
good thing because God
knows where some of these
guys would take us, as if we
aren't in a challenging posi-
tion already.
Personally, I do favor the
one who has been at war
himself, suffered as a POW
and maintained his integrity
in the face of persecution by
his captors. Anyone who can
endure that has my vote any
day. They say his mother is
90 years old, so he's got at
least another 20 years to
boot.
Our seniors have seen it
all, done it all and survived
many a storm, so they defi-
nitely have loads of experi-
ence and wisdom to go with
it. Besides he looks pretty
good for his age.
As for his choice of a run-
ning mate, she's had five
kids, her state loves her
(which sys 'a lot for a politi-
cian) and she's still full of ....
energy, she's defied the sta-
tus quo of government in her
state, I'd say she's looking
pretty good myself.
Regardless of who you
pick, the fate of this nation is
at stake. Regardless of who
wins, they will still need all
the prayer they can get as
this job is not an easy one. It
seems we hear all the nega- _
tive when they get in office
and very little of the positive
on both sides (Democrat or
Republican).
What would happen if we
only aired the good stuff in
the campaign ads? I guess
that would make the choice
even harder. I guess in four
years we'll know if we all
made the right choice or not.
May the best man win and
God bless America.

TODAY'S LETTERS


Palin has shown what
she can do in Alaska
Editor:
Sarah Palin, a woman who speaks for what
I stand for ... get rid of corruption any where,
anytime and anyone.
When you keep reading the smut they are
going to throw at Sarah just think of one
thing: "Road to no where" in Alaska that she
blocked spending millions and millions of
dollars of your tax monies.
Remember when you hear the crap, remem-
ber she stopped millions and millions of dol-
lars going into many pockets in Washington
D.C.
You don't think that when the proposal to
build that "road to no where" that someone
had already in mind who was going to get the
contract to build that road?
When she stopped that "road to no where"
she made many enemies in Washington D.C.
and she will pay the price going on the ticket
of the Republican Party.
How many are not going to vote
Republican as they fall for this crap to keep
her from going to Washington D.C.
You can rest assure that any whistle-blower
who goes to her to show corruption will get
action and I would say all whistle-blowers
working under government contracts are
probably praying the Republican win...
Case in Point...
Just think of the road being built in Boston,
the millions and millions of over-run ... It is
now well more than 10 years that road was
started. It's not completed yet ... corruption


by the millions and not one person has been
sent to jail.
When are the Democrats in Massachusetts
going to get the Boston road corruption out
into the open, as they are always after the
Republicans for corruption.
This is what Sara Palin stopped from hap-
pening in Alaska. She knew that amount of
money was not going to "build a road to any
where" that was just the beginning as it
seems the amount allowed in Washington D.C.
never covers the complete cost. as the road in
Boston has shown well over 10 years of
spending of taxpayers monies.
Barack Obama claims that McCain is going
to do exactly what Pres. George Bush has
done. Well, who is Barack Obama going to
follow ... the democratic house and senate.
Obama will bow down as they lash out that
whip one minute after he is elected. ..
Remember, it was President George Bush
who cut your taxes, all you middle class citi-
zens out there going to the polls. ..
Eleanor Jeane Thomas.

What a wise leader can do
Editor:
In President Reagan's March 1983 address,
he expressed the fulfillment of his desire for
a Navy missile with capabilities of destroying
a satellite. He realized the importance of our
nation being prepared to protect ourselves;
this validated Bush Sr.'s administration's
expenditure of $10 billion a year on anti-mis-
sile defense. These tests have been successful

in 21 interceptions of our 22.
Although the so-called World Community
grumbled and complained about the United
States daring to knock out a satellite, there
was good reason for action, since this satellite
had failed in its mission, was coming closer
to earth carrying a large tank of toxic fuel
that would be harmful to many people. It also
signaled China that we have anti-satellite
technology power. Jan. 11, 2007 China
launched its first successful test of satellite
weaponry with disregard for the health of
mankind leaving multiple pieces of debris in
space imposing danger to manned and
unmanned spacecraft. The United States rec-
ognized this as a strategic threat.
In 1983 President Reagan launched an
effort with promise of changing the course of
human history which extricated America from
McNamara, Kissinger, Nixon, Ford and


Carter's strategy of multiple destruction
which offered our only hope for avoiding
nuclear was being massive retaliation killing
as many of the enemy people as possible.
Reagan offered hope through the ballistic
Missile reaching the satellite before it reaches
us. An anti-missile defense system is a neces-
sity at this stage of our country. Though he
was criticized unmercifully, his determination
to be prepared to defend our country was
instrumental in ending the cold war....
Americans are becoming indignant about
the U.S. Air Force granting a French compa-
ny a $35 billion tanker aircraft contract that
could grow into a $100 billion deal and is
estimated to create $100,000 jobs in Europe
which we badly need to boost our economy.
Republican Duncan Hunter, a ranking
Republican on the House Armed Service
Committee is leading the battle in Congress
,to overturn this decision, this is also critical
to our national security. ..
When our manufacturers sell products in
foreign countries, they are required to pay
border tax on the value of the products, as
well as tax on transportation, insurance and
other costs. It's not difficult to see why so
many of our companies have been forced out
of business with such an unfair practice ...
There has been a lot said about other
nations not liking us; but to quote my mom,
"Bought friendship is no friendship anyway."
My philosophy is be fair to all, protect our
home interest and let the good Lord take care
of the rest." ...

Arrest made in Sebring armed robbery


Continued from page 1A
pair drove down Lakeview
Drive, they saw a man
matching the description rid-
ing a bicycle eastbound near
Nahaw Avenue.
The *two investigators
pulled the man over, and he
identified himself as Gerald
Karl Pittman, 40, of 922
Lemon St. in Sebring.
Magnuson reported that
Pittman was "sweating pro-
fusely" and told the officers
he didn't mind being ques-
tioned because he hadn't
done anything wrong.
Pittman told the officers
he was returning from a job
interview at Winn Dixie and
gave consent to be searched.
The search turned up a large
wad of cash stuffed in one of
his back pockets and a black
stocking cap in his other
back pocket.


Pittman was detained, and
three witnesses who saw the
robber leave the scene were
able to positively identify
him as the man they saw.
The victim was too shaken
up to make an identification.
While waiting for the wit-
nesses, Pittman reportedly
without provocation asked
officers "did someone get
robbed or something?"
After the witness identifi-
cations, Pittman was arrested
and charged with robbery
with a firearm, larceny and
kidnapping/false imprison-
ment.
Being charged with armed
robbery is nothing new to
Pittman, who just got out of
prison on Dec. 1 of last year
after serving nearly 12 years
and eight months of a 20-
year sentence for a 1993
conviction for armed rob-


bery, false imprisonment and
stealing a car in Broward
County.
Prior to that, Pittman was
convicted of another armed
robbery, that one in Duval
County, in 1988. He served a
few days more than three
years of a four-year sentence
for that crime.
Because of those two con-
victions, Pittman could be
looking at a lot longer
stretch in prison if he is con-
victed of this crime.
Florida's "three strikes law"
states that a third conviction
for a violent crime carries
stiffer sentencing guidelines.
For example, a third first-
degree felony conviction
(armed robbery is a first-
degree felony) carries a
mandatory 30-year prison
term, according to defense
help.com.

ning of the year and eventually resulted in
the termination of Pallone's predecessor, the
pledge requests aren't for cash.
Rather, Pallone and her board of directors
are asking the community to do its level best
to keep local dollars local.
"That's a really great way to kick off this
campaign," Pallone said of the race at
Highlands Hammock State Park.
Already, 100 people have signed up and
several organizations are fielding more than
10 of their own employees or participants,
which is important.
"We have a large traveling trophy award
that will be awarded to the organization with
the largest group participation," Pallone
said.
In addition, lunch is on the chamber for
the winning group.
First through third place awards in stan-


dard five-year age groups will be awarded,
as will male and female masters and overall.
Through Friday, pre-registration is $15
and includes T-shirts..
Race day registration from 6:30-7:15 a.m.
at Highlands Hammock State Park is $20,
and shirts aren't guaranteed.
The race starts at 7:30 a.m.
"We've organized a safe, fitness-con-
scious event while creating awareness for
our local business," Pallone said, noting that
the title sponsor is Mid-Florida Credit
Union and Aflac is providing the on-course
water station.
Registration forms are available at the
Sebring chamber, 227 U.S. 27 North, or

Jeff Sims, left, used to build cars on the NASCAR circuit. Now he works for Jack Turbeville,
right, and Central Florida KVAR Inc. Here the men are customizing a unit for a pump at the
AP water treatment plant. The unit, which is made up of capacitors, is in the box under
Sims' elbow. He is measuring the amperes, drawn by the electrical motor.


KVAR device saving money in AP


Continued from page 2A
operate the plant's main agita-
tors. These are significant
pieces of equipment that run
constantly. The motors are
brand new.
In cases like this,
Turbeville said, the KVAR
unit is customized. That
means a technician attaches a
unit containing capacitors of
various sizes. The technician
mixes and matches them until
the motor is running at peak
efficiency, 99 percent.
One motor's efficiency was
improved to 99 percent from
85 percent. This meant that
the amount of amps it was
drawing from the power com-
pany were lowered from 25.5
to 20.
Put another way, the pro-
jected cost of running the
motor before installing a


KVAR unit was $427 a
month, or $5,124 for 12
months. With a KVAR unit,
however, the cost would drop
to $303 a month, or $3,636
for a year.
Turbeville said home units
are more generalized, based
on amount of floor space
under roof and the number of
motors in the home.
A KVAR unit only works
with inductive electrical
motors. It has no affect on
lighting, for example.
But .for a home with a
washer/dryer, dishwasher,, air
conditioning, electrical fans,
hair dryers, pool pumps, etc.
that get a lot of use a family
can save between 8 to 20 per-
cent on its electrical bill every
month Turbeville said.
Freddie Renfro, head of the
water department, said he has


already seen a 10 percent
reduction in costs with the
KVAR units in place for a lit-
tle over a month at the Bell
Street water wells.
"They work," he said.
"There's no way they don't
work. I seen it work. I got the
numbers."
KVAR units are the inven-
tion of Gary Taylor, who
worked on the idea for 17
years. Turbeville was trained
by him and has an almost reli-
gious fervor in his belief in
the product. He hopes that
KVAR units will eventually
be installed in every
American home and business.
He says that the nation would
save about 20 percent of its
electricity that way.
For more information, call
Turbeville at 446-0833.

ter.
Feelings turned harder as
Thorn and his alleged abuses
became the focus of the
group. Some had trouble
holding back tears; others
couldn't keep anger out of
their voices.
The church's problems
began, members said, soon
after Thorn arrived on the
scene in 1994.
Once a thriving, active con-
gregation of 500 (during the
winter), it is now a battered
core of about 100.
It was Thorn's tendency to
surround himself with an
inner circle of cronies and
their habit of controlling
every aspect of the church
and its mission that first dis-
turbed many members, the
News-Sun was told.
In 1997, for example, 95 to
100 congregants left for the
Union Congregational church
in protest after efforts to
remove Thorn from his post
were unsuccessful. The
Methodist hierarchy under
the leadership of a bishop
who has since retired -
failed to understand the depth
of the congregation's concern.
But even with such red
flags flying, no one even sus-
pected something more sinis-
ter might be happening below
the surface that was how
convincing and conniving
Thorn had become, several
current members said.
In fact, it wasn't until
Thorn told the church's
board, of which Wally
Randall was then vice chair-
man, that the church was run-
ning $2,000 to $4,000 in the
red every month that anyone
became suspicious of darker
deeds. Randall said he and
others knew those figures had
to be wrong.
It was then, when the con-
gregation tried to look into
the church's accounts, that the
real battle for the third oldest
church lit was organized in -
9 lt) in Avon Park began.
'horn and his 'circle,
parishioners said, repeatedly
denied them access to church
records, kept the keys to
church buildings to them-
selves, and became even more
secretive.
When a group of the con-
gregation stopped coming to
services unable to face
Thorn in the pulpit but
continued to attend Sunday
school, they were summarily
told to leave and had to resort
to meeting under an oak tree
across the street.

More mystery
unravels
Then came Friday the 13th
in July 2007 when a fire
began in the pastor's office.
Just prior to that date
Thorn had finally agreed to
allow access to the financial
records. Several parishioners
saw stacks of what they are
sure were the records spread
across the church office floor.
On the night of the 13th,
serving staff from the Depot
Restaurant happened to be
returning from a late-night
catering job and saw smoke
and flames coming from the
church office. They called the
fire department, which
responded rapidly, containing
the flames.
A window air-conditioning
unit was said to be the cause
of the fire, although it had not
been in use for over a decade;
The cause of the fire is still
under investigation.
Randall, who visited the
site soon after, said the dam-
age to the room was mostly
the result of smoke and water.
Fire damage was strictly eye
level and above.
The News-Sun was shown
photographs of the fire site,
which clearly recorded this.


Additionally, the photos
showed books and paper work
on shelves that had not been
touched by the blaze or its
aftermath.
However, Randall added,
Thorn and some of his friends
were seen removing large
trash bags from the office
soon after. Witnesses said
they were told the bags were
filled with papers destroyed


by the fire.
Randall said he and others
couldn't help but be suspi-
cious because when he got
into the office, one file draw-
er in a cabinet was complete-
ly empty, but the other three
drawers of the same cabinet
were still filled with papers in
good condition. Of the stacks
of paper seen on the floor,
none were left.
That was the trigger for the
lawsuit a group of parish-
ioners brought against Thorn
and the Methodist church.
This was done with great
reluctance, members of the
group said, and only as a last
desperate measure. Money
was never a part of this suit.
Instead, it focused entirely on
getting the financial records
back, explained Jim
McCollum, attorney for the
plaintiffs.
Unfortunately, because
people most commonly asso-
ciate civil litigation with
money, this suit caused even
more division within the con-
gregation when some mem-
bers misunderstood its intent.
The new bishop, Timothy
Whitaker, admitted to the
congregation that he was also
initially upset about the suit
until, that is, he and his
office tried to get information
from Thorn.
Again, weeks passed with
excuse after excuse and noth-
ing but obfuscation.
Whitaker became suspi-
cious with the delays himself
and began an investigation.
By Jan. 22, he decided "there
was enough evidence to sup-
port the complaints."

A Book of Discipline
Thorn was removed from
his position at the church and
put on paid suspension, while
the church hierarchy, follow-
ing its Book of Discipline,
continued its process of fact
finding and due process.
The district took over the
expense of Thorn's salary\ and
benefits, sparing the church.
whose financial situation was
by now in total chaos. While
the district conducted the
search for a new pastor, an
assistant bishop and visiting
ministers served the congre-
gation.
Pendrak was named interim
pastor in April.
The Methodist Book of
Discipline provides a process
to deal with difficult situa-
tions like the one the First
United Methodist Church of
Avon Park was facing. Like
the American legal system it
is based on the concept of
innocent until proven guilty.
But having been written by
Christian people of faith, it
rises to another level.
Whitaker was as concerned
with saving the church and
moving it forward, as he was
with adjudicating guilt.
One of Randall's worst
moments came during the
bishop's investigation when
he was told by one of the
investigators that despite the
shrinking congregation, those
parishioners who stayed were
still contributing enough to
have covered the church's
financial obligations had the
money not been drained off.
"I almost cried," Randall
said.
The decision was made to
allow the secular, civil courts
deal with that aspect and
focus on helping the church
and its congregation get back
to their mission sharing
their faith and making disci-
ples of Jesus Christ for the
transformation of the world.

Still more deception
With that in mind, the bish-
op asked for and received a
letter of resignation and
retirement from Thorn to be


effective Aug. 31, 2008.
Unfortunately, however, the
congregation had yet one
more shock in store.
Once the church elders got
the various keys to locked
rooms and buildings back,
they discovered that valuable
equipment, all of it donated
or bought with church funds,
was missing from where it
was stored.
New nail guns still in their


News-Sun Wednesday, September 17, 2008


boxes, drums of nails, storage
containers filled with ham-
mers, Craftsman tools, an air
compressor, a pick-up truck,
two trailers one brand new
costing $5,200 rolls of
roofing paper, packages of
shingles; in short tens of
thousands of dollars of equip-
ment and tools, all gone.
Members were able to track
down some of the lost equip-
ment, including the truck and
trailers, which had been sold
to an individual in Georgia
for $1.
On top of that, they found
receipts for wire transfers of
church endowment funds -
about $69,000 that had
been sent to the attorney rep-
resenting Thorn. What they
didn't find, Randall said,"
were billing statements or
even requests for payment.
Between the equipment and
the cash, estimates of total
losses are well more than
$150,000.

Going forward
At this point Randall said,
the congregation is really
only interested in getting the
church back on track and
about its business, They hope
to win back at least some of
those members they have lost
and attract new ones as well.
Under Pendrak's guidance
they have begun a TGIF after-
school program, including
safe space and Christian rap
music, geared toward the
young people who attend
Avon Park Middle School
almost directly across the
street.
The congregation has also
opened a new thrift store
called Second Blessings, and
has many other plans as well.
The members are determined
their story will have a happy
ending.
Meeting with the News-
Sun and telling their story
was not an easy thing for
church members to do, but
they are determined to set'the
record straight. .; ;' '-
A"All Ie' ever sought,"
Randall said, "is accountabili-
ty."

Truck rolls over on Arbuckle Creek Road

Ralph Miranda, a K-9 handler with the Highlands County's Sheriff's Office, helps at the
scene of a semi accident Monday morning just before noon. A 20-wheel truck carrying
gravel was headed to the Henry Crutchfield Barn on Arbuckle Creek Road when it didn't
make the turn coming off of County Road 17A and tipped over on its side. According to
the investigator on scene, Highway Patrol Trooper Marcus, the driver, Jimmy Fowler,
escaped injury but said he had blacked out and lost control. No other vehicles were
involved.

Child Development

Center earns national

accreditation


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Avon
Park Community Child
Development Center, in
Avon Park, is one of the first
early childhood programs to
earn accreditation from the
National Association for the
Education of Young Children
- the nation's leading organi-
zations of early childhood
professionals.
"We're proud to have
earned the mark of quality
from NAEYC and to be rec-
ognized for our commitment
to reaching the highest pro-
fessional standards," said
Velma Lumpkin, executive
director of the center.
"NAEYC Accreditation
lets families in our communi-
ty know that children in our
program are getting the best
care and early learning expe-
riences possible."
To earn NAEYC Accredit-
ation in the new system,
APCCDC went through an
extensive self-study process,
measuring the program and
its services against the 10
new NAEYC Early
Childhood Program Stand-
ards and more than 400 relat-
ed Accreditation Criteria.
The program received
NAEYC Accreditation after
an onsite visit by NAEYC
Assessors to ensure that the
program meets each of the 10
NAEYC program standards.
NAEYC-accredited pro-
grams are also subject to
unannounced. visits during
their accreditation, which
lasts for five years.
In the 20 years since
NAEYC Accreditation was
established, it has become a
widely recognized sign of
high-quality early childhood
education. More than 11,000
programs, serving one mil-
lion young children, are cur-


rently accredited by NAEYC
- approximately 8 percent of
all preschools and other early
childhood programs.
"The new NAEYC
Accreditation system raises
the bar for preschools, child
care centers and other early
childhood programs," said
Dr. Mark Ginsenberg, execu-
tive director of NAEYC.
"APCCDC's NAEYC Acc-
reditation is a sign that they
are a leader in a national
effort to invest in high-quali-
ty early childhood education
and to help give all children
a better start."
The NAEYC Accredit-
ation system has set volun-
tary professional standards
for programs for young chil-
dren since 1985. As of
September 2006, the associa-
tion's revised program stan-
dards and criteria have intro-
duced a new level of quality,
accountability and service
for parents and children in
child care programs. The
new standards reflect the lat-
est research and best prac-
tices in early childhood edu-
cation and development.
NAEYC is committed to uti-
lizing the newest studies and
analysis on positive child
outcomes to ensure young
children -continue receiving
the highest quality care and
education possible.
The NAEYC Accredit-
ation system was created in
1985 to set professional stan-
dards for early childhood
education and to help fami-
lies identify high-quality
preschools, child care centers
and ,other early educational
programs.
To earn NAEYC Accredit-
ation, a program must meet
each of the 10 NAEYC Early
Childhood Program Stand-
ards.

- Can the definition o cheating be redefined?


Recently, I have become
reacquainted with an old
high school friend. He told
me that he and his wife have
not had sex for about 10
years they have been mar-
ried for 45 and he'has
decided to go outside his
marriage and have an affair.
I say, "No, no, no, that is
not the right answer." But I
do understand his position.
She has made it clear she is
not interested in sex with
him. He is 64 years old, and
would like to have a warm,
loving relationship with a
woman.
His thoughts and ideas
have given me pause, since I
have also told my husband
that I am not interested in
having sex with him.
The two situations are dif-
ferent. My friend signed up
for love and sex in his mar-
riage contract. My husband,
on the other hand, knew
when we got married a year
ago (both at a youthful 65)
that he was signing on for a
marriage without sex. I also
signed on for a marriage
without sex and now realize
that that may not have been
such a good idea. My hus-
band may be feeling the same
way.
I know you are going to
say I should open a dialogue
with my husband, but it's
very difficult to do. I've


already talked to my
friend about open-
ing a dialogue with
his wife, but he is
certain it is a closed
book.
If I don't want to
have sex with my
husband, should I
tell him he is free to
have sex with some-
one else? When is
one cheating in a
marriage?

We know how to offer
advice, sound advice, to oth-
ers that we don't take. The
tough thing to do is often -
maybe always the thing
most critical to the life we
want.
I can think of no justifica-
tion for not talking; and even
if I could, justification is a
flag. You can call it red or
yellow ... doesn't matter, it's
a flag.
My strict definition for
cheating is: sharing less than
all of you. A looser definition
is: betraying a commitment.
We can exclude sex from
commitment in marriage, but
that could be unwise since
sex is a byproduct of a lov-
ing, caring relationship.
Unless you're willing to sign
on for an unloving relation-
ship, you probably want to
include sex.
And you might be sur-
prised at how many people

have agreed with
or without verbaliz-
ing it to bypass
sex. When you don't
have it, you're
essentially agreeing
to exclude it ... and
if your partner wants
to have it, you're
probably breaking
your marriage vows
(read: cheating).


Commitment is an
ongoing decision. You don't
commit once and for all.
With or without realizing it,
you continually reassess your
commitment and decide
whether or not you want to
keep it. So does your partner.
Being honest with your-
self and your partner about
what you're feeling today is
even more important to a
healthy relationship than
keeping a commitment you
made yesterday. Honesty was
likely part of the commit-
ment.
When you share less than
all of you, it's because you
know or accept less than
all of you. And that's not just


cheating your partner, that's
cheating yourself.
Ask yourself what seems
most difficult to do in,your
relationship ... and consider
doing it. Don't wait for a
convenient time; schedule it.
Isn't that what you do with
something that deserves top
priority, something like being
true to yourself?
"This above all: to thine
own self be true, and it must
follow, as the night the day,
thou canst not then be false
to any man," said
Shakespeare.
If you want to know if
you're cheating in your mar-
riage, you need only ask
yourself if you're cheating
yourself. And, by all means,
do it before you tell your
husband he's free to have sex
elsewhere.

Mattress Cleaning
An Overlooked Service

Why clean mattresses? There is a growing amount of scientific data that reveals better environmental hygiene that
improves health. The Environmental Protection Agency has consistently ranked indoor air pollution among the top five
environmental risks to public health, and according to the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, "50
percent of all illnesses are cause by or aggravated by polluted indoor air."
So what are these indoor pollutants that can negatively affect our health? They include outdoor pollutants brought
inside, combustion products, contamination from chemical products used by the consumer, and biological
contamination. This is why EPA statistics how that levels of may airborne pollutants can be 100 to 500 percent higher
indoors than outdoors.
Bio-pollutants include dog and cat dander, dust mites and cockroach allergens. These indoor pollutants act as triggers
for asthma and other respiratory ailments. Over 40 million Americans suffer from allergies due to these pollutants.
Children are the most at risk, as their lungs are still in the developmental stage.
The NO. 1 indoor allergen source? The common house dust mite. Dust mites are microscopic, eight-legged arachnids
(not insect) 0.3mm in length. They are invisible to thehuman eye, so small they can crawl through the weave of
bedding fabrics.
Dust mites feed on tiny flakes of shed.human skin cells. The average adult sheds about 2 pounds of skin per year.
This will feed millions of dust mites. The Dust mite is not what causes the problem; this lies with a protein found in
the fecal matter called Der pl. The fecal matter is lighter than air and becomes airborne when disturbed by activity
like fluffing pillows and tossing and turning during the night. The airborne particles are inhaled; the protein Der pi
breaks down the protective mucous lining of the eyes, nose, lungs, and skin. The allergens enter the body and cause
an overreaction of the human immune system. According to the a study published by the National Institute of
Environmental Health, 46 percent of North American homes have bedding with enough dust mite allergens to cause
allergies.
We cannot forget pets. Proteins in a pet's dander, saliva and urine cause pet allergies. Grooming by cats cause the
saliva on fur to become airborne, which in turn triggers allergic reaction. Allergy sufferers should not have pets, but
of course they do. We can help by introducing regular cleaning and treatment of their home's furnishings.
So what about Mattresses? For allergy sufferers, the bedroom is the primary source of dust mite exposure in the
home. About 60 percent of mites in the home are found in the mattress and pillows, as we spend one third of our lives
in bed shedding skin and feeding dust mites.
For effective control of dust mite allergens, the mattress should be regularly cleaned and sanitized every 6 months.
For the customer who may not be convinced she has mites in her mattress, it is possible to do a test to determine
the levels of mites.
While this report might be a revelation to most Americans, the fact is the Europeans have been aware of these findings
for many years, which is why there are now more than 4300 dealers that are performing this service in tens of
thousands of American and European homes and commercial locations on a regular basis.
"When I first read about the business of cleaning and sanitizing mattresses," said Chris with Sleep Easy Solutions, "I
was somewhat surprised to learn just how effective and how simple it was to perform this type of service." Chris,
who has been in the customer service business for several years, was convinced that his company be the one to bring
this low cost and highly effective process to the people of the greater Highlands County area.
"When I witnessed firsthand the Hygienitech Mattress Cleaning and Sanitizing process extracted from a relatively new
mattress, followed by an allergen detection test which clearly indicated the level of contamination," Chris went on to
say, "I was not only certain that this was an excellent and much needed service, but I could not wait to get home and
clean my mattress in my own home."
This scientifically proven Hygienitech Mattress Cleaning and Sanitizing process is an all natural chemical free, dry
treatment using UV-C germicidall) light that is completely safe for treating all types of mattresses. Mr. Hadden's
company, Sleep Easy Solutions offers a free in-home allergen and mattress contamination test that takes a few
minutes to perform.
They also have the capability to sanitize all areas of your home, such as furniture, carpets, curtains and whole room
sanitizing for people with low immune systems.
For more information on a complete detail of services and/or to schedule a FREE in-home allergen and contamination
test, call Sleep Easy Solutions at 863-381-9645 or 385-6837, or you can email them at sez@embarqmail.com 24
hours a day, and leave a phone number and address they will schedule your appointment right away and get back
to you, or they will simply email you back with appointment time and date.

Legion Auxiliary

District adopts manatee


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
American Legion Auxiliary
District 8 president Darlene
Watkin gave a school of
instruction workshop Sept. 13
at Lake Placid Unit 25. The
workshop was a huge success
and the biggest one held for
some time. Nine of the 12
units in District 8 were repre-
sented.
A joint opening was held
with Legionnaires directed by
District 8 Commander
Richard Francis.
Two past department presi-
dents were present Doris
Rash, Unit 25 and Ruby Bell,
Venice Unit 159. Fruitville
Unit 266, Rhonda Stoothoff
chairman, was honored for its
outstanding veterans project
in sending boxes to the troops.
The ladies were asked by
Watkin to plan their work, and
work their plan as the country
is in need of constant support.
District 8 this year have


been given the manatee as a
project by the department to
show the auxiliary support for
endangered species. The rest
of the state has different
endangered species to work
for set by department presi-
dent Kathee Coughlin.
"This project excites me,"
Watkin said, "as we are going
into the classrooms with
activity books, DVDs,
PowerPoint presentations and
much more to educate our
young people about ho v
important it is to our world to
take care of it and all its cre-
ations."
The classes will actually
adopt a manatee as will many
of the district units and follow
its existence with pictures,
visits and newsletters.
"As American Legion
Auxiliary members we do
care and will prove it for
Education Month with our
whole district working with
our community and its youth

Hard work pays off for Kirkland landscape


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK For those
travelers who use Memorial
Drive between Avon Park
and Sebring, it is a common
occurrence to see a man
working in his garden on the
corner of Washington Street.,
Bobby, Kirkland spends a
good part of each working
day in the garden and around
his yard. This is what first
attracted the attention of the
Avon Park Founders Garden
Club members.
A closer look shows a
lawn that always appears to
be freshly mowed and shrub-
bery that is kept neatly
trimmed. Hanging pots in
front .of the house overflow
with philodendron plants and
a "chocolate soldier" bego-
nia, adding to the charm of
the house.
White picket fences
enclose azalea bushes, vibur-
num, heather, orange ixora
and pittosporum. Two Italian
cypress plants enhance the
plantings at the side of the
house. A male tabebuia tree
on the side of the house had
its' female partner in the
back yard. A windmill in the
front yard has the paddles
removed at this time due to
high winds.
Kirkland is a retired cor-
rections officer from the

Sebring
Recreation Club
By Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING Saturday
night at pin shuffle we had the
pleasure of Roscoe Burdette
with us. It is nice whenever
Roscoe shuffles with us, but
tonight he had his son Jerry
and wife Joy Dee Burdette
from Coolville, Ohio. Bev
Hann was back from the north
and Ed Williams practiced
with us. Ada Williams was on
the side as her shoulder is not
yet ready for shuffleboard.
Line dancing is every
Wednesday at 6 p.m., rain or
shin Just like the mail, you
can count on it. You can also
count on a real nice evening
of line dancing. New dances
are learned and good friends
made at the same time. You
are a stranger with this group
just once and that is on your
first visit. You are not dancing
with us already, why not? It is
not because you do not feel
that you are not good enough
we hope. You learn while you
dance and this will make you
a better dancer. All weight
watchers should try this with
us. Being fat myself I do not
see a fat dancer on the floor.
SMore things to remember;
shots that appear, easy are
often missed. Concentrate on
the shot. Careless playing will
get you in trouble. Or~e care-
less shot may cost you the
game. Pay attention and think
before you shoot. Be. seated
and remain seated when the
opposite end is shooting. Get
up only after they hdve fin-
ished or a disc needs to be
checked. Be sure and get up to
check the disc for your part-
ner if there is a question about
it being good. Watch the
scoreboard and know the
score at all times. This is also
your partner and friend, so
treat it that way. Remember,
"When in doubt, take it out."
Take your easiest shot when
you have a choice in shooting.
"Keep it simple stupid!" is
always good to keep in mind
when playing shuffleboard.
Please give Bev Hann, Carl
Wile, or Chap your feelings
on entertainment for this sea-
son. This is your club and
your opinion is very impor-
tant in all decisions made by
the club.
Lake Jackson is rising and
our season is getting nearer
for the shuffleboard tourna-
ments as well. You should try
to make our tournaments; if
not to compete or to learn,
just for the food that is made
and available at most tourna-
ments. Not all the good cooks
in Sebring are club members
but all club members are good
cooks.
Talk to Ed Straub about


your club and give him any
idea that you may have on
club activities. Ed is a real
good listener and he does
need all the ideas he can get.
Nov. 3 will be the first meet-
ing of this season. A family
stays together that prays
together, so let's all pray for
this nation and our troops. Be
thankful for our rain as well
and all that labor in your club.
We're in back of the Sebring
Police Station at 333'
Pomegranate Ave.

Town and Country
By Janet Day

After a six-week "vacation"
to upstate New York visiting
friends and family, enjoying
numerous baseball tourna-
ments "featuring" our 12-
year-old grandson; trying to
keep up with our 2-year-old
grandson; celebrating
Chuck's 75th birthday early;
picking strawberries, raspber-
ries and blackberries; touring
beautiful Letchworth State
Park in a 1973 Chevrolet
Caprice Convertible; having a
three-hour tour of a salt mine
1,200 feet beneath the sur-
face; and making the adjust-
ment to 40- to 50-degree
morning temperatures, we are
back in sunny Florida read-
justing to the 90-ply degree
temperatures here in
Sebring!.And I may add,
mighty happy to be back
home.
Just prior to our leaving in
June, everyone at, Tovn and
Country,was saddene,d by the
death of Kitty Edwards. Ms.
Kitty was an institution here
and everyone will miss her so
much. Kitty's memorial serv-
ice was on June 28. A com-
memorative luncheon held at
our clubhouse was organized
and hosted by Peggy George,
June Kapp and helpers. Many
attended, including some of
Kitty's original friends from
Miami and park friends who
had moved away but returned
to honor Ms Kitty. Sincere
sympathy to Chuck and fami-
ly.
A July 4th celebration
brought out a good group to
enjoy the pool, shuffleboard
and friendly neighbors. Lunch
was served around noon and
many stayed and enjoyed the
camaraderie. I'm told a good
old-fashioned downpour
broke up the party sometime
around 2 p.m.
Welcome to the McKeons,
Harold and Anna, who have
moved into their new home at
255 Springtime Drive. We
welcome both and trust you
will enjoy the folks and activ-
ities at Town and Country.
Claudia and Larry
McManus are celebrating
their 50th wedding anniver-


sary with friends and family.
Sept. 15 is the exact date.
Congratulations to both from
all your neighbors .t.
Welcome back to Julia
(Hannah) and Paul
Henneberry. They have sold
their home ;back in New
Hampshire so are joining the
ranks of Florida full timers.
Gene and Evelyn Clark just
returned this week from New
Hampshire and they also sold
their northern home. Ray and
Shirley Young arrived early
this week and are already
busy landscaping their lot
area. Gene and Vivian New on
Cooper Street have also
recently returned.
Dixie Cooper has recov-
ered very well from her
lengthy illness/recuperation,
and we are delighted to learn
she is driving herself around
Sebring now. Great determi-
nation from a lovely lady. We
are sorry to hear Judy Rogers
is suffering ill health.
September birthdays
include: Pat Huxman, John
Haag, Linda Grossman,
Sandy McQueary, Chuck Day,
Louise Mattson, Dawn
Kalybaba, Jane McCleery,
Shirley Young, Bill Wyse,
Floyd Cummins and Larry
McManus. If you see any of
these good folks, wish them a
great day.
Besides visiting families,
we learn several residents
took interesting vacations
over the stlmmer. Gisella
Bukantis visited children in
Germany for:a month; Toby
and Betty Chapel enjoyed a
great national park tour in the
western part of our beautiful
country; the Huxmans have
been on an Alaskan tour and
spent time in Texas; Barb and
Jack Wilson traveled to Las
Vegas and the Grand Canyon;
the Wyses visited in north
Florida and South Carolina.
Leo and Claudette enjoyed
the mountains of Virginia ear-
lier and Massachusetts. Am
sure there are others traveling
who I haven't heard about. So
great we are free to see and


enjoy our wonderful country.
We all look forward to fall
activities resuming in October
when we. welcome back many
of our winter residents. In the
meantime, our morning water
aerobics class is continuing.
Come join us; we have oodles
of fun in the sun.
In closing, if you are "fall
housecleaning" and find arti-
cles you no longer need or
use, the American Red Cross
is having its annual garage
sale Saturday, Oct. 25.
Contact the Red Cross office
at 386-4440 or call me to
arrange for pick-up (or drop-
off at the Red Cross office
behind Highland Regional
Hospital). The hurricane sea-
son is still very active, so be
prepared. Two shelters were
opened for flood victims after
Tropical Storm Fay. With dif-
ficult economic times, finan-
cial giving has decreased dra-
matically and contributions
are seriously needed to enable
the usual Red Cross disaster
response. Thank you for your
considerations.

What do you do when Viagra,


Levitra or CiauIs doesn't work?


If you are one of the nearly 6
:D million men with erectile dys-
function for whom pills don't
work, learn how the Internal
.. ... Penile Pump restores normal sexual
S- function.

Oral medications such as Viagra,
B. -' Levitra, and Cialis are successful in
S.restoring erections for 65% of the 20
.'' million American men who are affected
.I' by erectile dysfunction (ED). However, a
third of all those suffering from ED
T I require a more advanced treatment
option: fewer than 50% of men with dia-
S.- betes and fewer than 40% of men after
prostate cancer treatment respond to
oral ED medication.

: The Internal Penile Pump is currently
S.the best option for men who do not
S, ,. s respond to medication, says Dr. Kevin
l. -2 Lee, Sebring, Florida, one of the top
'* rated physicians in the state of Florida
Swho is recognized as a center of excel-
lence for this procedure in the United
States, performing hundreds of Penile
I Pump insertions.
A simple procedure to get ack a lifetime of pleasure.

The Internal Penile Pump is an inflatable, water-filled device. During the course of a
45 minute outpatient procedure, the pump is inserted through a one-inch opening in
the scrotal sac. By squeezing the pump (which is contained completely within the
scrotum), for approximately a minute, fluid is pumped into the penis, resulting in a
long lasting erection. To return the penis to its flaccid state, simply press and hold
down the pump. Once inserted, there is no maintenance required for the pump which
can remain in place for a lifetime.

The control and quality you want; the pleasure your partner will appreciate.

The highlight of this treatment is that it restores the patient's control over his body,
so that he is able to obtain and maintain an erection at will. Couples are once again
able to have spontaneous sex. Normal sensations, including orgasm and ejaculation,
is not affected. The procedure is covered by most insurance policies, including
Medicare.

Losses and gains were
neck and neck with the gains
edging past the losses by one
pound. The Best Loser of the
week was Margaret Gause,
who chose a gift from the
prize box.
Yes-Yeses are salad three
times a week, broccoli twice
a week and the No-No is
pizza. Norma Weida was


absent and forfeited the
Travel Gift so Carolyn
Rider's name was drawn. As
she is already a Kops, she'll
just need to stay at or below

the prize. Dottie Barkau took
a wrapper off the Mystery
Gift which is still a mystery.
After a short business
meeting and several
announcements, the program
was presented by Donna
Raaf, who spoke about keep-
ing a daily journal. She
stressed the fact that a jour-
nal should be a private
record of your thoughts and
significant events. A journal
faithfully kept provides
amazing insight into what
prompts eating habits to
change. It is also a mar-
velous "keepsake" to refer to
years later when memories
need to be "prompted."

SVolunteering: Good for the


community, good for you


Hope Hospice volunteers
use a number of words to
positively describe their
experience, including
"rewarding," "enriching"
and "fulfilling."
Interestingly, there is
actual research that supports
the feelings they express. A
recent national study of the
Health Benefits of
Volunteering summed up
what our volunteers have
known for a long time: You
feel better when you serve
as a volunteer in the com-
munity.
The study found that indi-
viduals who give at least
100 hours of their time each
year report improved physi-
cal and mental health,
greater life satisfaction and
lower mortality rates than
their non-volunteering peers.
Evidence suggests that vol-
unteering has a positive
effect on psychological fac-
tors such as one's sense of
purpose. Volunteering may
enhance a person's special
networks to reduce stress
and risk of illness.
These personal benefits
are all derived from one
thing: the knowledge that
you are helping others and
making a difference in their
lives.

lies each day in ways that
add real quality to the
patients' lives. They provide
companionship. They may
drive the patient to the doc-
tor or go shopping for them.
They give family caregivers
an opportunity to rest or
take care of business or
other family matters. Some
volunteers work at special
events such as health fairs,
informing the public of how
Hope can help. Other volun-
teers work in our offices,

and they too are supporting
the staff in the care of our
patients and their families.
Working as a Hope vol-
unteer can be a life-changing
experience. One of our vol-
unteers regularly takes fresh
flowers to our patients. On
one occasion, she went to
the home of a patient who
had been non-responsive for
quite a long time, unable to
speak or open her eyes or
feed herself. When the vol-
unteer placed the flowers by
her bed, she turned her head,
opened her eyes and said,
"They are beautiful."
Imagine the joy that our vol-
unteer felt at that moment!
Sometimes even the smallest
deeds make a tremendous
impact in the lives of those
in our care.
It is no exaggeration to
say that Hope volunteers
make the community a bet-
ter place to live.
I encourage you to con-
sider becoming a Hope
Hospice volunteer. No expe-
rience is necessary, and you
will receive in-depth train-
ing about our work. Please
call (863) 370-7017. You too
can make our community a
better place.

dent and chief executive officer

Eyes also need protection from ultraviolet radiation


Many of us
can remem-
ber the days
of laying in
the sun, coat-
ed in baby oil
to get a won-
derful bronze
Focal summer tan.
I~Oiint Today we
know that
Dr. Valerie this causes
Moulds skin damage
and even cancer. Even with
conscientious tanning (i.e.
using sunblock), damage to
skin cells will still occur.
How many of us know of
the effects of the sun's ultra-
violet rays on our eyes?
Studies have shown that while
90 percent of people are
aware of the hazardous effects
on our skin, less than 10 per-
cent understand the harmful
effects it has on our eyes. The
majority of consumers admit
to wearing nonprescription
sunglasses on occasion; how-
ever, 25 percent of consumers
never wear sunglasses at all.
My struggle, as an eye doc-
tor, is to encourage people to
protect their eyes from the
sun. The main problems are
that the effects of ultraviolet
radiation are usually delayed
by many years and are cumu-
lative in nature.
Sunlight may reach the eye
through reflection of objects,
scattering from the sky, or
less often from direct view-
ing. This latter pathway is
least likely as very few people
spend time looking directly at
the sun. Certainly, the over-
hang of the brow provides
some protection against direct
light exposure when facing
the sun; however, it is the
scattered light from the sky
and the ground that is of more
importance.
Light reflected from a sur-
face can be variable. Fresh
snow may reflect as much as
85 percent of the UV-B rays,
which is why eye protection is
imperative while skiing. Sand
reflects less light than snow
but is still a reflecting surface
for sunlight. These light rays
reach the eye directly even
though the person may be sit-
ting under an umbrella or
wearing a hat. This is why
some people seem to tan or
burn in spite of taking such
measures.
It has been estimated by the
World Health Organization
and the National Women's
Health Resource Center that
80 percent of your lifetime
ultraviolet radiation exposure


occurs before the age of 18.
Soil and grass reflect up to 10
percent of UV radiation; sand,
15 percent; sea foam, 25 per-
cent; and snow, 80 percent..
Patients need to be made
aware of the long-term ocular
damage induced by ultraviolet
radiation exposure. The
WHO estimates that one in
six people older than 40 has
clinically significant cataracts,
and half of those older than
80 do, as well. Twenty per-
cent of all people are blinded
by cataracts due to sun expo-
sure.
All ocular structures may
suffer damage due to sun
exposure. Ultraviolet radiation
can lead to wrinkles and skin
cancer of the eyelids. This
skin is typically the thinnest
in the body, and is not usually
covered with sunscreen when


outdoors. In addition, benign,
as well as malignant growths
may develop on the surface of
the globe. Damage to the
internal structures of the eye
may lead to inflammation,
causing sensitivity to light,
cataract development (as men-
tioned pre\ iousl.). macular
degeneration, and malignan-
cies in the retina. Ocular dam-
age may be seen as early as 9
years of age, and according to
Dr. Minas Coroneo of New
South Wales, 80 percent of
Australian children showed
signs of eye damage from
ultraviolet radiation by age
15.
Pupils are larger and lenses
are clearer in children, so they
are affected more by reflec-
tive surfaces. They tend to
spend more time outdoors,
and generally receive three

Crutchfield/Hawkins


sees stellar scores


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING The warm
and windless weather
Monday proved a good set-
ting for the annula
Crutchfield/Hawkins
Invitational Tournament with
teams from around the state
invading Highlands County.
The ladies side of the
Crutchfield/Hawkins Invite
was played at Highlands
Ridge North where some very
impressive scores were
brought in with the conducive
weather, including a new
course record among 72
golfer's representing 18 teams.
Kyle Roig of American
Heritage fired a 65 to set the
new mark, but she had com-
pany in challenging for it.
Lake Howell's Carlie
Yadloczky was just one shot
back with a 66 and Linday
'Duncan, also of American
'Heritage, was two shots
back with a 67.
Also breaking par on the
day were, yet another
American Heritage golfer,
Shelby Coyle and Archbiship
McCarthy's Kaylin Yost, with
a 70 apiece, and Diana Davis
of Archbishop McCarthy
with a 71.
As might be expected,
American Heritage was the
overall winner, and of
Division I, with a remark-


able team score of 282, while
Lake Howell was runner up
in the division with a 291.
Lady linksters carding
even-par 72s for the round
in the top division were A.J.
'.Newell and Michelle Butler
of Northside Christian.
In Division II, Providence
took top honors with a 339,
behind Kaitlyn Price's 72,
followed by Olympia with a
team score of 349.
The Lady Blue Streaks
finished sixth among the
eight teams in the second
division with a team mark
of 430.
Sebring was lead by
Lindsey Lovett's 95 and
Camiel White's 97.
In the five-team Division
III, Kings Academy had the
low round with a 429 behind
Courtney Lancionese's 98,
with Lake Brantley taking
second with a 437 with the
help of Molly Peel's 88.
All in all, a great day for
golf, and the scores showed
that, during another succes-
ful edition of the
Crutchfield/Hawkins Invite.
The Lady Blue Streaks
will be back in action
Thursday as they host
Haines City.
Results of the boys side
of the tournament had not
been made available by
press time.


One heroic


Heartland effort


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@ nwssun.comn
David didn't slay Goliath
this time, but he gave him all.
he could handle and a bit of a
whuppin' too.
That's the figurative spin
on the effort put forth by the
Heartland- Christian Lady
Crusaders Monday night.
Facing long odds against a
school three times their size,
Heartland traveled to Moore
Haven to take on the Terriers.
And in the best-of-three
match against the junior var-
sity squad, the Crusaders
made it a 'big school JV hat
trick' adding Moore Haven to
a list that includes Sebring


and Lake Placid.
The first set was a bit of a
close one, with Heartland
eking it out, 25-23.
Settling in, the Lady
Crusaders made short work of
the Terriers in the second set,
winning going away, 25-14.
Now this was Moore
Haven's junior varsity,
against Heartland's junior
varsity which really just
meant the varsity Crusaders,
less their two seniors, Catilin
Cwalinski and Christie Davis.
"We usually run a 6-2
offense, meaning we have two
setters on the floor at all
times," head coach Shannon

Sebring sweep


not so sweet


By DAN HOEHNE

SEBRING In boxing you
might call it a tomato can.
That opponent that you can
beef up your record with.
Coming off two straight
losses to district front-runners
DeSoto and Braden River, a
match-up with Booker might
have seemed like just what
the doctor ordered for the
Lady Streaks to get back to
their winning ways.


After all, this was the team
they defeated 25-0 in a set
last year.
Sebring won it in three
straight, so the win was
theirs, but it wasn't as easy as
it should have been.
"We just didn't play well,"
Molly Blackman lamented.
"It wasn't just one or a couple
of us, it was all of us."
Perhaps looking past what

Seventh grader Sara Bohan, left, and eighth grader Kayla
Selander, were among the Crusader's who played against
both the Moore Haven junior varsity and varsity Monday
night. Heartland won the JV match-up and then somehow
found the energy to nearly push the varsity to the limit.


Wow, what a weekend


It may be Wednesday as
you read this, but this was
such a wild weekend that
not much of it has worn off
yet.
A great Sunday of foot-
ball, highlighted by a
blown call that has the NFL
already making rule-change
plans in the offseason.
Ed 'Look At Me'
Hochuli, a fine referee with
the build of a linebacker,
made the call that he him-
self admitted was wrong -
so give him credit for that,
at least.
In the waning moments
of a riveting, back-and-
forth game between Denver
and San Diego, the Broncos
were trailing but knocking
on the door.
Quarterback Jay Cutler
drops back to pass, but as
he was raising his arm up
to throw, the ball slipped
out of his hand.
Even as the ball got
away, Cutler's muscle
memory had his arm con-
tinuing with the motion of
throwing it.
The ball bounced off to
the side; where a San Diego
defender was poised to
pounce on it, which would
have all but ended any
Bronco hope.
But Hochuli, positioned
almost directly behind
Cutler, with the action hap-
pening so quickly, and the
arm movement continuing
as a pass, called it an
incomplete pass, rather than
a fumble, and whistled the
play dead.
The Chargers challenged
the play to be reviewed,
where it was revealed that
it was, in fact, a fumble.
Unfortunately for San
Diego, by the letter of the
rule, even though it was
now ruled a fumble, since
the whistle had been blown,


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne
the play is over, with the
ball remaining in Denver's
possession allowing them
to eventually score and then
convert a two-point conver-
sion to win the game.
Analysts have backed
Hochuli, saying that from
his angle, it was a very dif-
ficult call to make, in the
moment.
And beyond that, his
hands were tied, based on
the NFL rule.
The league has since
announced plans to look
over the rule to see if some
leeway can be given nice
idea in principal, but a little
too late for Norv Turner
and the Chargers.
It suddenly became. too
late for Milwaukee Brewer
manager Ned Yost as well,
as he was let go by the
team.
By the team that is tied
for the lead in the wild card
race, with two weeks left in
the season.
It might seem odd, if not
insane, timing, but I'm not
so sure.
The Brewers were in
contention last year, leading
their division, blowing that,
leading the wild card,
blowing that and missing
the playoffs entirely.
It was said that they were
a young team and just had

Billiards gains popularity


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Billiards for
Special STARS athletes
almost doubled in size com-
pared to last year's competi-
tion.Cue Time Billiards
owner Chuck White has been
graciously hosting the Special
STARS Billiards Tournament
for the past four years.
The sport went from 35
players to almost 60 competi-
tors this year and for the past
four weeks starting.at 10 a.m.
each Saturday, the profession-
al billiard tables were occu-
pied by four different levels
of players until 2 p.m.
Each' week the players
scored points toward the final
competition day this past
Saturday where trophies and
ribbons were presented.
"Because of the growing
interest in this sport, we had to
create four different levels of


playing action in order to give
everyone equal playing time,"
Special STARS Coordinator
Cindy Marshall said.
There was a beginners
level, middle level, skilled
level and a masters level with
each level having a different
skill level to accomplish.
For example, the beginners
used sticks with the cue ball
attached at the end and when
they move up to the middle
level the players use regular
pool sticks but they get to
have 'ball in hand.'
This rule allows the player
to move the cue ball around
the table at whatever shot
they can make.
The skilled level plays clos-
er to the regular rules in bil-
liards with the exception they
do not have to call pockets
especially on the eight ball.
The masters level must call


the pocket on the eight ball.
"We have been totally
blown away with the number
of athletes and'the variety of
athletes who came out to play
billiards," Marshall said. "We
had one gentleman who is
blind, four people in wheel-
chairs, one 9-year-old boy
-and-an equal mix of men and
women playing the game."
"I challenge anyone to play
the game blindfolded," Bobby
Talley of Avon Park chuckled.
Talley, who is 'blind, com-
peted against those who had
no visual impairments but
still walked away with a sec-
ond-place trophy in his divi-
sion of beginners.
All levels, except the
masters, had three different
divisions in it masters had
two divisions of players.
This allowed more trophies

Special STARS athlete Rositta Mooney, of Avon Park, knows exactly where she wants to go
with her shot on the billiard table. Mooney took home a first place trophy for the first time.

Fassler said. "But because
our two seniors had to sit out
the JV game, that left us
with only one practicing set-
ter, so we improvised."
Which may have
explained the closeness of
the first set, as well as the
ability of this team in adjust-
ing on the fly enough to
make the second set the
route it was.
Having little chance to
fully recoup in the hot and
stifling Moore Haven gym,
it was on to the varsity con-
test, with a fresh roster for
the Terriers and the
Heartland seniors being
added to the mix of the vic-


torious JV Crusaders.
"Their varsity was proba-
bly the smartest team that
we've played so far," Fassler
said. "They saw our holes
and played them. Their setter
continually dumped the ball
over the net on their second
hit right into our center court
- which was wide open."
Which would explain
Heartland coming up short
in the first two sets, 25-17
and 25-18.
"But my girls started to
get the hang of it and
stepped up," Fassler added.
"They became, a little more
scrappy, which was what we
needed."
Scrappy enough to scrap

to be presented to the athletes
who sometimes never get a
chance to win one.
A total of 33 trophies were
awarded.
"I am very proud of my tro-
phy and I.worked hard for it,"
Sharon Carpenter of Avon
Park said as she clutched onto
her first place award.
"We get trophies donated
by people in the community
and Doug Singletary at
Impact Awards in Avon Park
helps us put new plates and
pieces on the trophies to make
them look brand new,"
Marshall said. "It is such a
joy to see their faces light up
and hear them scream with
excitement when they win an
award as special as a trophy.
For some of these athletes this
is their first big award and
they cherish it forever."
Those who won first place
trophies include Kenny Stoll,
Christine Frank, Richard
Rossner, Rositta Mooney,
Beth Blanchard, Mac Smith,
Annie Horn, Patrick
Patterson, Sharon. CAipeinte#'

Second place trophies were
won by Patty Wilfong, Carlita

Third place trophies went
to Jimmy Phipps, Maricel

out a 26-24 win in the third
set and push the Terriers to
the limit in the fourth before
coming up on the short end
of the 26-24 score.
"It took us a while to get
started," Fassler said. "But
once we did we were neck-
and-neck."
Consider, by the third set
of the varsity match, the
bulk of the Heartland roster
was in its fifth set in the sti-
fling conditions.
For them to then step it up
and go toe to toe with the
Moore Haven varsity says a
lot about not only the ability
of the team and its coach,
but to their character and
perseverance as well.


An observation noted and
appreciated by Heartland
Athletic Director Hal
Graves.
"I told them in the bus on
the way back," he said, "I
couldn't be any more proud of
what you tried to do here
tonight."
Fassler, despite the loss
was also quite upbeat about
the effort.
"I can teach them the
skills, but they have to out
there with the heart and
determination in order to
make it happen," she said.
"No, I can't submit a win for
this one, but I certainly
marked it as a job well done
in my book."


Not easy, but a win


Continued from 1C
should be an easy oppo-
nent, or playing down to
their level.
"Our goal was to keep
them under ten points in
each game, which was a
good goal," head coach
Venessa Sinness said. "We
did it the first game, but if
it weren't for the fact that
they made more mistakes
than us, we could have
been in trouble."
It seemed evident early
on, as missed kill chances
allowed the Tornadoes to
jump out to a 3-0 lead.
That may have woken
the Streaks up, as the tal-
ent and killer instinct were
on display to the tune of
outscoring Booker 25-5
the rest of the way.
The next set started out
the opposite with Sebring
getting out to a 3-0 lead.
But hustle from the
Tornadoes and mistakes
by the Streaks allowed the
visitors to hang around.
There were the bright
spots -- Hainiih' Shoopi's
service ace,"' a Ricki


Albritton kill, a Brittanie
Augustine tip and a
Blackman smash.
But even Blackman's
throwdown only brought
the late lead to 18-12.
Again, the ladies won it
going away, scoring seven
of the last nine points.
The final set reverted
back to the first, as Booker
broke out to a 4-1 lead.
Abigail Bone then
served up an ace to start a
run, culminating in Bone
trying out a jump serve for
another ace for a 7-4 lead.
The lead slowly grew
from there, but the sloppi-
ness wasn't over as the
Tornadoes blew back to
close to within 20-15.
Now it was Anna West's
turn to serve up a couple of
aces, including one of the
jump-serve variety to close
it out, 25-17.
"It's just the little
things," Sinness said. "But
it's OK. We're going
through a little stretch
where we just need to
work the, kinks. out and
we'll be fine."


Put the blame on


Drayton McClane


Continued from 1C
to go through the experience,
better preparing them for the
next time they were in that
situation.
Well, they found them-
selves in that situation again,
with a healthy lead for the
wild card, bolstered by the
blockbuster trade for CC
Sabathia.
But again, they find them-
selves floundering, coughing
up the sizable lead to find
themselves now tied after
dropping four straight to the
Phillies.
Yost has shown he's a
good manager, but it's said
he's a bit high strung and
was getting stressed out -
which has obviously been
how the team has played
lately.
On the other side of the
coin, the Astros haven't been
high strung, they've been
exhausted physically, men-
tally and emotionally.
Yes, I'm a Cub fan, but
even I will admit that
Houston got hosed on this
deal.
With Hurricane Ike post-
poning the two teams' sched-
uled series at Minute Maid
Park, two of the games were
forced to be made up at a
neutral site.
As it turns out, the site that
MLB came up with was
Milwaukee's Miller Park,
just a hop across the
Wisconsin border for the
Cubs and their fans.
And, as it turns out, the
Astros found out on Sunday,
as they were still sorting
through the aftermath of Ike,
that they had to fly up to
Milwaukee that day, to play
the first of the two make-ups
that night.
I won't go so far as to say
that this diminishes Carlos
Zambrano's no-hitter against


them that night, but I will
say that the Astro's chance of
winning that 'home game'
were greatly reduced.
Put some blame on the
league, as it certainly could
have put the game in a more
equidistant location, with a
less pro-Cub crowd.
The Cardinals were on the
road, so Busch Stadium was
free and at least somewhat
closer to Houston and a bit
farther from Chicago.
Atlanta was away as well,
with the travel distance virtu-
ally the same for both the
Cubs and Astros.
And if Houston wanted it
more homey, the Rangers
were also playing on the
road.
A 920-mile trip from
Chicago, 250 from Houston,
with a Texas crowd.
But the plans had to be put
on hold so long and made at
the last minute, because
Astro owner Drayton
McClane absolutely refused,
for days prior, to consider
playing a home game some-
where else.
He preferred to wait and
see, but what was he expect-
ing?
Even if Minute Maid was-
n't damaged, did he think the
Houston fans would have
been up to going to a base-
ball game while their power
was out and their neighbor-
hoods and homes flooded?
I feel bad for Ed Hochule,
Ned Yost and the Astros.
Hochuli can look to the
NFL for putting him in such
a bad position.
Yost has to take his own
blame, while the Astros ,
should put it on their own-er.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. is tired of
having his No. 88 fade in the
latter stages of races, so much
so that he suggested, in radio
communication during the New
Hampshire race, that someone
might be tampering with his
tires. Owner Rick Hendrick took
the headset and calmed his
driver, who wound up finishing
fifth.
. Nothing enlivens the Chase
like having the most successful
driver, Kyle Busch, suffer a dis-
astrous beginning. For the nine
drivers who haven't combined to
win 70 percent of the season's
races, it's kind of "one down,
two to go."
1 Patrick Carpentier hinted that
Robby Gordon had intentionally
wrecked him as a means of
shoving Carpentier's team out of
the top 35 in owner points. Now
there's a story with legs.
. Ever heard the phrase "do the
math"? At the beginning of the
Sylvania 300, Greg Biffle was
80 points behind Busch. At the
end, he was 44 ahead. Busch
began the day 30 ahead of sec-
ond place. He ended it 74 out,
eighth in a field of 12.
The only driver who ever won
the Chase OK, this is only
the fifth one after winning the
opening race was Kurt Busch,
who isn't in this one, back in
2004.
Carl Edwards dodged a bit of a
bullet in the first Chase event.
Edwards entered the New
Hampshire race with the lowest
driver rating (83.1) of the 12
championship contenders.
The second lowest driver rat-
ing again, entering the race
belonged to Biffle, who won
it.
> The span from top to bottom
at the beginning of the Chase
was 80 points. At the end of the
first race, it was 177.
> The absence of a Dodge in
the Chase is one of the factors
in a spate of rumors that sever-
al Dodge teams are interested
in switching to Toyota. Dodge
has already curtailed its Crafts-
man Truck Series involvement.

and Tony Stewart. Biffle remedied
that predicament by winning the
first race of NASCAR's Chase and
outdueling the two-time defending
champion, Jimmie Johnson, who
had also entered the New Hamp-
shire Motor Speedway race as
the sport's hottest driver. In a vari-
ety of ways, Biffle tidied up the
mess of 33 races without a victo-
ry and 26 (the regular season) .
without getting his due. He kept
Johnson's Chevrolet in sight while
saving enough fuel to make it to
the end of Sunday's Sylvania
