Throngs of people, many of them chil-
dren, will line Main Street in Avon
Park Monday night for the annual
Christmas parade.

AP kicks off

parade season

Monday night
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssiin.comi
AVON PARK The Avon Park
Chamber of Commerce kicks off the hol-
iday season every year with the first
Christmas Parade in the county.
Beginning at 7 p.m. Monday, close to
100 groups will march on Main Street
during the 90-minute affair.
"This is the chamber's gift to the com-
munity," said David Greenslade, execu-
tive director.."We always have a good
turnout for the parade. And this year we
may have between 90-100 floats and
groups marching. We want to wish every-
one a happy holiday season and a Merry
Christmas."
Earlier in the year, the economy tried to
dampen the parade spirits when the city
announced it was not able to provide in-
kind support and that the Chamber would
have to raise over $4,000 in order to pay
for police and public works support. But
community supporters like Progress
Energy, Roland Dilley, Embarq,
Highlands Independent Bank, the Main
Street and Southside CRAs and several
others rallied to help defer the costs.
The parade will be broadcast live on
Comcast Cable channel 4 this year, and
Greenslade noted that it would be
rebroadcast at a later date as well.
Walker Memorial Academy will bring
out the steel drums, and the award-win-
ning Avon Park High School Marching
Grenadiers along with the Avon Park
Middle School band will also bring music
to the streets.
According to Greenslade, over 8,000
people will witness the parade this year,
and folks need to break out their lawn
chairs early to reserve their spots because
there will only be one set of grandstands.
Greenslade did ask that all groups in
the parade respect the request to not hand
out fliers or candy from the floats this
year for safety reasons.
Sebring's parade will be Friday and
Lake Placid's will be held on Saturday,
Dec. 13.

AP continues to mull Pleasant St. sidewalk hazard


Will apply for federal grant to pay for project to put sidewalk across CSX tracks


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridgle@newssun.conm
AVON PARK In the continuing
saga of how to make a broken CSX
railroad crossing safe for children on
their way to school, the Avon Park
City Council heard some alterna-
tives to fund the construction at their
meeting on Monday.
Ted Long, utilities director, pro-
posed that the council consider
applying for a Florida Safe Routes to
School (SRTS) grant to pay for the
construction of the sidewalk on West
Pleasant Street just west of the
police station.
The crossing was declared a haz-
ard by Police Chief Matthew


'We have been kicking this around since 2000. We decided when I
was on the council that it was too expensive back then.'

TOM MACKLIN
former Avon Park mayor


Doughney in a letter directed to
CSX, but the council has been put-
ting the repairs off because of the
costs.
During their last meeting, Long
informed the council that a quote
from CSX exceeded $62,000 for a
sidewalk and pedestrian crossing
signal.
The city has the funds available
through its bond program for streets


and sidewalks, but discussed at their
Nov. 10 meeting that they should
find somewhere else to use that
money.
The council balked at the costs,
and even suggested it would be
cheaper to hire a full-time crossing
guard for the area and directed Long
to look for alternatives.
"We have been kicking this
around since 2000," said ex-mayor


Tom Macklin during the discussion
on Nov. 10. "We say we want to fix
it, and then it always comes down to
the money. We decided when I was
on the council that it was too expen-
sive back then."
The Safe Routes to School
Program was authorized in August
2005 by the Federal Transportation
Act, and sets aside grant money for
every state.


The Florida Department of
Transportation will be receiving
approximately $29.1 million for
SRTS through the 2009 fiscal year.
The funds are administered
through the seven FDOT districts
and overseen by the State Safe
Routes to School Coordinator, Pat
Pieratte
Hearing of the grant opportunity,
the city council decided to try and
throw a couple of other projects at
the grant program, including the
lack of lighting along the route to
Park Elementary.
"Let's see if they will fund the
lights for Park as well," said council
member Joe Wright.


Season of lights starts with afternoon of work

Larry Suggs hangs Christmas lights Saturday along the roof of his home on Lakewood Road in Sebring. Joyce Suggs /
explained that she and her husband traditionally have their lights up before now, but 'we always wait until after Thanksgiving
to turn them on,' she said. The Suggs have lived in Sebring since 2002 and always look forward to decorating.




The Skylarks flock back home


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING With winter
residents returning to
Highlands County for the sea-
son it can mean only one
thing, a special flock of snow-
birds have arrived The
Skylarks are back and making
their own sweet sound.
The group will play at
Reflections in Avon Park
today from 7-9 p.m.
Seven years ago, some
members of the Highlands
County Concert Band discov-
ered they had a great deal in
common. Not only were they
dedicated musicians who lived
for their music, they shared a
love of the big band sound.
Gene Wort, who plays the
trombone, organized a new
band in the mold of Glen
Miller and Tommy Dorsey.
Picking the name Skylarks
- inspired by driving by a
sign advertising a Skylark
Hotel but really in homage to a
female trio who sang for Harry
James and used that name -
the band quickly became pop-
ular, playing at various ven-
ues, providing first class dance
music straight out the 40's and
50's. Their theme, of course, is
the song Skylark.
They have added to their
repertoire and can pump out
jazz, blues, rock and even
polkas. If a person can whistle
the tune, they can play it.
The 10-piece band, made up
of music majors, retired busi-
nessmen, apple growers, engi-
neers and teachers, boasts
trumpets, saxophones, trom-
bones, clarinets, keyboards
and drums.
Bill Varner, who has taken
over as musical director -
Wort still is an integral mem-
ber says their sound is
"pleasing. It resolves properly
and doesn't hurt the ear (like
modern hard rock)."
While mostly influenced by
swing, and singers like Frank


Sinatra, Varner has a great deal
of respect for the work of the
Beatles.
"They played good, correct
music," he said of them. "They
wrote some wonderful stuff."
Varner, who plays tenor sax,
started to play at the age of 12,
but quit when he was 29. He
went on to become a success-
ful Cadillac and Pontiac deal-
er. It was 42 years before he
picked up his instrument again
six years ago. Now he's back
to practicing at least two hours
a day.
"I can have all kinds of
problems, but I start to prac-


tice and get lost in the music,"
he said.
Joining him are: Vic
Anderson from Des Moines,
Iowa who plays lead trumpet
and also directs the Highlands
County Concert Band; Karen
and Gary Scott she plays
keyboard, he plays alto sax
and they divide their time
between Pennsylvania and
Frostproof; Ralph Sylvester,
from Maine, who plays trom-
bone; Jack Niskanen, from
Pennsylvania, who plays clar-
inet and saxophone; Jim
Garwood, from Indiana, who
plays trumpet; and the two

Deputy crashes into
ambulance
NAPLES Authorities
say a deputy driving an
unmarked vehicle struck a
Collier County ambulance
carrying a 70-year-old
patient, causing the ambu-
lance to overturn.
Florida Highway Patrol
reports that the deputy,
who was driving a sport
utility vehicle, and the
paramedic driving the
ambulance both claim they
had the right of way during
Friday morning's crash.
The vehicles were passing
through a Naples intersec-
tion when the SUV struck
the ambulance's left rear
axle, knocking it on its
right side.
The patient on board the
ambulance was airlifted to
a Fort Myers hospital with
critical injuries. FHP says
both drivers sustained
minor injuries, but another
paramedic in the ambu-
lance appeared to have bro-
ken her pelvis.
FHP was reviewing wit-
ness statements to deter-
mine fault.

ORLANDO -
Authorities say three peo-
ple were killed and one
was injured when their
sedan drove into the path
of a passenger train travel-
ing through central Florida.
Florida Highway Patrol
says two men and one
woman died when the
Amtrak train hit the car
Friday evening in Orlando.
A fourth passenger, 22-
year-old Victor Carillo, was
taken to the hospital but
released Saturday morning.
Killed in the crash were

22-year-old driver Walter
Martinez, 19-year-old pas-
senger Cristina Rosa and
27-year-old John Penaloza.
An Amtrak spokesman
says none of the 185 pas-
sengers or crew were hurt.
FHP says the car drove
past the crossing's lowered
gates into the path of the
train. The impact launched
the car into the air, and it
landed about 200 feet
away.

Rebuilt Cape St.

The Cape St. George
Light reconstruction is fin-
ished and visitors will be
able to climb the lighthouse
in, the lorida panhandle -
that nlany3thought was lost'
to the sea three years ago,
The 153-year-old light-
house toppled into the Gulf
of Mexico and smashed to
pieces in 2005 after years
of storms eroded the shore-
line. But residents on this
island about 77 miles
southwest of Tallahassee
banded together to save it.
They recovered thou-
sands of bricks and other
pieces of the lighthouse,
raised money and rebuilt it
in a safer spot on the center
of the narrow island.
It reopens to the public
Saturday. Visitors can
climb the wooden steps and
walk into the lamp room at
the top.

Cards, letters for
wounded soldiers
mean so much
Editor:
As District 8 president for
the American Legion
Auxiliary I have been
receiving many calls on how
to get Christmas cards and
phone cards for our wound-
ed warriors to be able to call
home for the holidays. I just
got a communication from
our Department
Americanism chairman who
said please send cards, let-
ters, phone.cards etc. to our
wounded warriors at Walter
Reed and other facilities
through the Red Cross with
the following address:
Holiday Mail to Heroes,
P.O. Box 5456, Capital
Heights, MD 20791-5456.
The greetings from you,
the Americans these veter-
ans have fought for, will
mean more than you will
ever know.


Please get mail sent by
Dec. 10 to get there on time.
Also for five years, since
the war began, there has
been a Wounded Warriors
workshop in Orlando and on
Dec. 7 from 12-5 p.m. war-
riors and families will be
flying into Orlando airport
with their families, approxi-
mately 150, and we invite
you to join the American
Legion family to greet them
and let them know we care.
Anyone wanting more
details can call Darlene
Watkin at 314-9107 or if
you can't go and you want
to donate toward welcome
goodies we would welcome
your donations.
Remember this is the sea-
son and to these special peo-
ple we should all take a
moment to let them know
we care and appreciate their
sacrifices.

Auxiliary District 8 president.

Many helped put
flag, pole in place
Editor:
Recently, we were proud
to have many join us at
Heron's Garden in Lake
Placid, the site on the annual
Sept. 11,2001 ceremony
started by Stanford many
years ago. This program was
arranged for the sole pur-


pose of dedicating a flag
pole with a plaque com-
memorating the Sept. 11,
2001 disaster.
In the beginning of the
summer Joy Pollard, an Air
Force veteran and member
of American Legion Placid
Post 25, came to the com-
mander of the Legion and
stated that it would be a
great thing if there were a
flag pole in front of Heron's
Garden for our annual cere-
mony. I, as the commander
of the Legion, went to Fran
Collum, commander of
VFW Post 4300 in Sebring,
and arranged to pick up a
20-foot flag pole from their
Post. The two flags were
also provided.
Jesse Russell, another
local Legionnaire, built the
concrete base for the pole.
Lou Werk and Squeaky
rigged the pole and with
Jesse's help got the pole
installed for the Sept. 11,
2001 ceremony just in time.
The plaque to be mounted
on the pole was arranged by
Suzanne and Charlie
Krueger with money donat-
ed through VFW Post 3880
in Lake Placid, but it was
also impossible to have the
plaque done for the original
ceremony. Through her dili-
gent efforts and the help of
Scott Funeral Home, the
permanent plaque was final-
ly secured in the base two
days before the get-together.

TODAY'S LETTERS


Play critic was unfair
and misleading
Editor:
(The) critic for the News-
Sun must have been having
a bad day. The review for
"Beauty and the Beast" at
Highlands Little Theatre,
pointed in the 'News-Sun on
Sunday, Nov. 16, was very
unfair and very misleading.
I sincerely hope that the
review did not cost
Highlands Little Theatre and
the "Beauty and the Beast"
performers any revenue
from lost ticket sales. If it
did Don Brusha, who is
responsible for the review,
owes the theatre and all
those involved in this per-
formance a public apology.
Though Mr. Brusha was
careful not to directly criti-
cize the cast, using words
such as "nice," "ably abet-
ted" is not complimentary
either.
Mr. Brusha took aim at
rather criticizing the play
itself in that he stated that it
lost its magic due to there
being real performers what
where you expecting sir? If
you could not see the magic
created by these performers
who are the everyday people
of our community in our
workplaces and schools you
have my sympathy as you
are missing a lot of what is
going on around you.
The talent in this commu-
nity from the director to the
ensembles is amazing in
itself and then to see the
dedication and work that is
put into this type of produc-
tion purely for the love of
the art and the entertainment
of the community is very
admirable. I really took
offense to, and I quote
"Presumably, they all
offered their best."
"Presumably are you kid-
ding me?
The talent of the singing
voices to the impressive
choreography and the more
than impeccable coordina-
tion and fluidity of the
dance routines made for a
wonderful evening. One
more thing so what if they
do raffle tickets or sell items
to raise money for the rental
of costumes? Where is your
community spirit? If they
had not done so it would
have given the critics some-
thing else negative to say
and then HLT would have
been accused of being tacky.
Bravo and a standing ova-


During the ceremony
Joseph Dionne, Highlands
County Veterans Service
director, related that a close
buddy of his was one of the
victims as one of the planes
hit the Pentagon on that day.
He was a 29 1/2-year veter-
an, six months from retire- ,
ment. This flag pole also
represents anyone who
served or lost their life for
this country.
Suzanne Krueger, the
master of ceremonies,
thanked the Heartland
Riders, American Legion
Placid Post 25, their auxil-
iary, Sons of the American
Legion, 40-& 8 Voiture 863,
VFW 3880, VFW 4300
Honor Guard and all else
that came to make this dedi-
cation a very memorable
one.
Squeaky of the American
Legion volunteered to moni-
tor and maintain the flag in
accordance with the proper
flag etiquette. It was desired
to have this in honor of
Veteran's Day locally but
the plaque was not complete
quite soon enough.
As Paul Harvey used to
say "and that's the rest of
the story."

Is hiring another
good ol' boy move?
Editor:
I have a couple of ques-
tions that I would like to
have answers to.
First, why did the
Highlands County "God
Fathers" hire Kyle Green of
Hardee County to head the
"Road and Bridge
Department" here in
Highlands County?
Second, don't we have
anyone here in Highlands
County that could fill that
position?
Third, wouldn't that save
the residents of Highlands
County thousands of dollars
each year in fuel costs, that
he uses everyday to drive
back and forth to work from
Hardee County to Highlands
County?
Fourth, doesn't this look
like another example of
"Good 01' Boy" government
here in Highlands County?
Just thought I would ask.

Costume

controversy

So, as I type this it's the day
before Thanksgiving. My turkey is
in the refrigerator, and my sons
will do a store run for me tonight
to pick up some last-minute items.
It's been great having the boys
home. Of course, we've had some
minor bumps. Their vehicle has
been to the shop twice trying to
interpret what the engine light is
trying to tell us. In a moment of
utter carelessness I managed to
spill water into our computer
router, making it into a small
doorstop and cutting us off from
the Internet. That involved a trip
to the store.
Throw in also I've been spend-
ing as much time as I can with the
guys and that explains why I felt
slightly flustered as I sat in front
of my laptop this evening.
I had had a couple of ideas for
today's column. In researching
one of them, I went to the Drudge
Report Web site. As I scrolled
down, looking for news, I saw this
headline: "Parents Clash Over
Kindergarten Thanksgiving
Costumes."
My first reaction was, "You are
kidding." Of course, that was a
silly reaction on my part. I've
seen many cases of people freak-
ing out over silly things. What's
one more?
According to articles on The
Los Angeles Times Web site, the
kindergarteners of two elemen-
Stary schools in Claremont have
long enjoyed a Thanksgiving tra-
dition. The schools take turns
dressing up and visiting the other
school for a traditional
Thanksgiving feast. The hosting
school dresses as Pilgrims, and
the visiting kids dress as Native
Americans.
This has gone on with the
schools there for around 40 years.
This year it nearly got derailed
thanks to Michelle Reheja, an
English professor whose specialty
-'is Native American literature. Her
daughter is a kindergartener at one
of the schools, and when she
heard of the tradition, she decided
she didn't like it.
Ms. Reheja, whose mother is a
Native American, decried the
dress up, comparing it to having
kids dress up as slaves and mas-
ters, or Jews and "friendly" Nazis.
She felt it demeaned her daugh-
ter's heritage and asked if some-
thing alternative could be done
instead.
The disagreement blew up to a
bitter fight between both sides.
Parents who supported the tradi-
tion accused Reheja and her sup-
porters of political correctness
gone amuck, while the other side
suggested that those who wanted
to keep up the tradition were
racists who wanted to whitewash
American history.
In the end, the school board
decided to allow the schools to
hold the event minus the cos-
tumes. Some kids wore them any-
way, and protesters from both
sides of the issue were on hand.to
bicker with each other.
The Los Angeles Times has a
place for people to comment on
articles, and the anger of both
sides about this one is evident. In
fact, many people appear to
believe you can be rude when
posting online.
Let me say a couple of things.
First, there is no doubt that our
country's hands are not clean
when it comes to its treatment of
Native Americans. Our forefathers
took their lands and waged war on
them. That is not in dispute.
Second, the Pilgrims and
Indians did share a "harvest festi-
val" in 1621. This particular meal
is what we traditionally think of
as Thanksgiving, though the holi-
day itself didn't become set up
until many, many years later.
So the kids are basically reen-
acting what happened in 1621,
before our forefathers started


breaking their promises. They are
recalling that initial, if temporary,
time that the two races met
together in harmony and brother-
hood.
I'm all for teaching truth histo-
ry. But is it such a bad thing to let
kids know that, at least in the
beginning, we did the right thing?

Remember

When The Word

"Service" Meant

Something?
We remember when people took the time to
serve others. Our family has been helping
families here for many years. A our town
has grown, we have grown too, with more
specialized services, such as out-of-town
arrangements, pre-arrangements, cremations
and a grief recovery program. Even though
we have grown, our dedication to service is
still the same as it was years ago. And, we
think that's really something.

Shoppers hit the

stores early Friday

doors well before dawn.
But local store managers
were concerned that this
Black Friday might turn out to
be dark gray instead.
Certainly parking lots are
fuller than they have been
lately, retailers are seeing
more people out and about,
and a good portion of them
are actually shopping. But
even so, Circuit City general
manager Sean Connolly was
among several who said, "It's
a little lighter this year than
last."
Most customers, when
asked, indicated their shop-
ping budget was tighter this
year, but also said they were
going to do what they could to
make sure their children had a
good Christmas.
Traveling to shop doesn't
seem tojbe an issue what with
the drop in gasoline prices,
and the need to find the per-
fect gift.
For example, quite a few
shoppers had driven up from
Okeechobee or east from
Wauchula to shop in
Highlands County, and many
of the local shoppers were just
as prepared to drive out of
town to find what they need-


ed.
Clothing stores, like Ross,
were jammed Friday, and
some shoppers said their
Christmas was going to have a
practical theme.
But electronics stores were
busy too..
Connolly said that gaming
is big, especially the social
games like Wii and Guitar
Hero, and that many families
are upgrading to plasma TVs.
GPS systems also are hot.
Customers could be seen
carefully looking over the
store's flyers announcing spe-
cial deals.
Over in Lakeshore Mall,
the Game Stop was just as
busy as shoppers looked over
the games and components for
sale. The Game Stop is a little
different in, that it sells used
games as well. "Buy two of
those and you get one free,"
said a young man handing out
gift guides at the door.
Lori Olsen and her daugh-
ter Michele Olsen, looking
over cell phones, said they
were geared up for the season.
They were going to shop
locally first, but would travel
to Orlando and Tampa if that's
what it took.
David Lynch, who lives in


I M-M %. -
Lakeshore Mall was bustling and many in the crowd carried
at least one bag of goodies. The food court was filled with
shoppers resting their feet and refueling.


Clermont, was visiting family
here for Thanksgiving.
Although he wasn't out shop-
ping per say, he was looking
over the options and checking
out sales.
Sherri Lamb, who just
moved here from Iowa, was
surprised to find "things a lit-
tle more expensive here,
depending on what you're
buying."
Two teenage sisters,
Tabitha and Tanya Ray, had
driven up from Okeechobee to
shop at the Lakeshore Mall.
They had made one small pur-
chase, but weren't finished
yet.
David Byars, someone else
who came up from
Okeechobee, had a basket full
of decorations he'd bought at
the Dollar Tree Store by
Publix. Darlene Smith and
Juanita Collins, who work at


Griffin's Dry Cleaning &
Laundry, were in the next
check-out lane, also buying
decorations, in this case to
decorate the store.
According to customers,
decorations and stocking
stuffers were two reasons the
Dollar Tree store was so busy.
A constant line moved
through the cashiers stations.
Jill Brown, a three-year
Christmas veteran at the
Dollar Tree, said, "It's shap-
ing up good, very good." She
laughed as she rang up a sale,
"Don't forget we have fresh
bread every day for $1," she
added.
Perhaps the most excited
Christmas shopper was Lisa
Mingus. Her husband Clint,
an operations specialist first
class in the United States
Coast Guard, is due home
from a six-month deployment

in fire

The family had driven to
the Sebring Wal-Mart to do
some shopping about three
hours before the blaze.
Everything was fine when
they left the house.
EMS crews had to attend to
the distraught Vasquez, but
had stated that she would be
fine.
SAccording to witnesses, a
neighbor noticed- smoke -and-
- called 911 just after l-p.m.,
but by the time the first fire
truck could arrive, the flames
were visible from the back of
the house and through the
roof.
The fire was extinguished
by 1:45 p.m.
Although the official cause
of the fire was not deter-
mined, it was suspected that
it was electrical in nature.
According to Batz, the
house was a total loss.
The fire was still under
investigation by the State Fire
Marshall at press time.

very proud of him. The
French general said 'You
simply seem unaware you
saved the world 60 years ago.
You say you were just doing
your job, but you freed the
world. You freed my country.
The French people have
never forgotten this. You
freed my country, my peo-
ple.' That impressed me a
lot," said the younger
Farmer.
"It's a beautiful medal,"
said the elder Farmer in a
phone interview on
Wednesday.
"I hit Omaha Beach on D
plus 7, that's seven days after
D-Day. I was part of Patton's
army, and our job was to take
tanks to the front and pick up
and return damaged tanks to
the motor pool."
D-Day is the reference to
the day of the actual landing
of Allied Forces on the
beaches of Normandy in
WWII.
The exact time was kept a
secret and unknown until the
time to invade had actually
come.
In planning, the day before
the landing was referred to as
D-Day minus one, and had
been postponed more than
once because the timing of
the attack was crucial.
Optimal conditions were
needed for the initial attack,
and D-Day happened on June
6, 1944.
Farmer said that they were

mostly scared during-those
times, and just trying to do
their job.
He remembers meeting
Patton himself.
"I met Patton a couple of
times. He was a very stern
and very a strong-willed per-
son. He would not tell you to
do something that he would
do himself, though. I know
that he got into some trouble
because he was strong-
willed, but I thought he was a


good general," said Farmer.

A community's sense of

home depends on its boards


I hope reading this makes
you feel so much better you
don't mind that it stretches
the rules we set up for this
column.
First the why:
Surprisingly, often the
most time consuming part
of Tuffin' It is lining up the
job.
This month, between the
election, Highlands County
residents being supremely
news worthy, having to pay
attention to the ripples of
the nation's economic prob-
lems lapping on our shores,
the start of the holidays,
and the press of my other
regularly assigned duties, it
wasn't until the Monday
before Thanksgiving that I
even thought of this
month's adventure at all.
And, of course, there was
nothing ready.
Worse, what with the
short holiday week, there
was nothing I could rush
out and do at the last
minute.
Big problem.
Thinking about my big
problem, after an appropri-
ate amount of anxious pain,
led to a leap in thought -
to the problems, big and
small, that are tackled by
all the people who serve on
boards in Highlands
County. I mean advisory
boards, action boards, spe-
cial boards, public boards,
private boards, boards to
which people are appoint-
ed, boards to which people
are elected, boards that pay
a salary, boards that do not,
powerful boards, figure-
head boards, all kinds of
boards.
I've been attending a

Christopher Tuffley
wide variety of board meet-
ings for four years now, and
you can take it from me,
most of us don't have a
clue how much hard work
is done by private citizens
for the public good.
Some boards require real
commitment and involve
great effort and lots of
time; some deal with eso-
teric knowledge, and hours
of reading dense, legal lan-
guage; some boards mean
making difficult decisions
that have real impact on
real lives.
Being on a board may
mean going out and beg-
ging for money, or deciding
whether staff members
receive a Christmas bonus,
or deciding if Mrs. Smith
may paint her house Kelly
green, or if elementary
school students get recess.
On Wednesday, Nov. 19,
at a regularly scheduled
Children's Services Council
meeting, I witnessed a
unique moment and excel-
lent example of the best a
board can be.
For starters, it is impor-

Continued from page 9A
tant to remember that the
Children's Services Council
is an unusual board because
it's made up of appointed
private individuals who have
a vote, and honorary public
officials and service agency
representatives who do not.
Ostensibly, it acts as an
advisory board to the
Children's Services
Foundation, a public/private
organization responsible for
many child-centered innova-
tions like the Children's
Advocacy Center, for exam-
ple, or the We Care hot line.
Agencies typically appear
before it presenting aspects
of their programs and
requesting mini-grants in
support of their work.
But, just as frequently, the
council leads the way in
finding practical answers to
troublesome problems.
It can do this because of
its composition, which is a
mix of movers and shakers
- like the superintendent of
schools, the sheriff, represen-
tatives from the Department
of Children and Families, the
county's Departments of
Health and Human Services
- and concerned private cit-
izens, most of whom have
related backgrounds, or a
commitment to help children.
It is the private citizens who
vote.
The point is, what makes
the Council so useful is the
opportunity it provides for
people in a position to do
something to talk to one
another face-to-face and join
forces.
It meets roughly every
other month, at heaven
help me 7:30 a.m., in the
conference room at the
Children's Advocacy Center.
The room, a large space
with light colored walls, has
an ornate clock at one end,
and a pull-down video screen
at the other. French doors on
one side lead out, and the
middle area is dominated by
luminously dark wooden
tables arranged into an open
rectangle running parallel to
the walls. It is a very civi-
lized place.
Which is a good thing,
because all too often the
individuals gathered are dis-
cussing conditions that are
anything but civilized.
Take that Wednesday.
It started with Sgt. Monica
Sauls of the sheriff's office
bringing the council an
update on the problem of
bullies in the schools.
Sauls said that one out of
seven students is either a vic-
tim of bullies, or a bully
themselves. That's 14 percent
of the school population
nationwide.
She added that 9 percent of
students are regularly vic-
tims, and 7 percent of stu-
dents are regularly bullies.


She had a startling statistic
that 1.6 percent of students
are actually both victims and
bullies.
But the most disturbing
number was the 65 to 70 per-
cent of students who simply
stand back and watch, doing
nothing in the face of pain
and suffering.
That led Sheriff Susan
Benton to ask the question,
"How do we get kids to
engage, to understand their
responsibility and know
when to stand up and do the
right thing? Bystanders can
stop this."
The conversation quickly
broadened.
Parents hovering like heli-
copters over their children
often do more harm than
good, former school superin-
tendent and honorary council
member Ruth Handley point-
ed out.
Sauls added that, "We do
not want to over-protect our
children because one day,
thank God, they will leave
the home and need those
skills.
Members discussed the
monumental hurdles of what
to do about peer pressure and
children's terror of being per-
ceived as snitches.
They brainstormed ideas,
considered existing programs
that could be adapted, like
teen court, and discussed
other influences, like gangs.
Slowly the conversation took
on a shape and direction, if
still more abstract than spe-
cific.
Then Andrew Hughes of
Wauchula State Bank and
incoming chairman of the
council, said, "What can we
do to actually help? There's
got to be stuff we can do."
Handley suggested form-
ing a committee.
Someone else said that
with the holidays coming, it
-would be a good idea to do
that in the new year.
But immediately people
disagreed the problem was
simply too pressing, they
said, the school year over too
soon to dawdle or waste
time. The time to meet was
now, not later, people agreed,
so a meeting was set and the
work continues on.
What impressed me was
not just the dedication of
people who obviously care,
but the determination to find
solutions, not just make pret-
ty statements, and the will-
ingness to set timelines and
come up with solid propos-
als.
This, after all, is what
boards were invented to do
- make a difference.
So, stay tuned. Even bet-
ter, follow the council's lead
and take part.

ARTS & LEISURE


Pileated Woodpecker one of the

state's most distinctive birds


Welcome to our roost. So many birds
- so little time. We arc always so happy
to sketch out another one of the many
species of birds found here in Highlands
County; practically, in our backyards. If
we are able to help you in your identifi-
cation of these birds and stir you to
want to know more then "our cup run-
neth over."
We know the Internet is a great
source of information, but isn't it nice
to know that your neighbor down the
street also shares your excitement when
seeing that Painted Bunting at their
feeder or watching a tiny Hummingbird
flit from blossom to blossom; giving joy
to the onlooker, with thanks to the
Creator?. The mention of Painted
Bunting reminds us to say that several
readers reported sighting that beauty
recently: Fred Lohrer in Placid Lakes,
Helen Obenchain in Highlands Park
Estates and a nice bird watcher living
near Lake Istokpoga (misplaced her
name darn).
Our subject bird today is the Pileated
Woodpecker, (Dryocopus pileatus). This
woodpecker is one of the most distinc-
tive birds of Florida's deep forest and
swamps. But unlike its close relative,
the Ivory-billed Woodpecker; the
Pileated is very adaptable and often may
be seen in close proximity to busy urban
areas. This is our largest woodpecker. It
has a red, crested head, white throat and
white strips from base of bill to the
shoulders. The white wing linings,
frontally located, are conspicuous in
flight. The female's red plumage is
restricted to a smaller portion of the
crest.
Pileated Woodpeckers excavate rec-
tangular cavities in soft or rotten wood.
Eggs, usually three to five, are laid
between February and May. Carpenter


Birds And Other
Wild Things
Ruth and Hank Kowalsk-i

ants and wood-boring beetles are impor-
tant food items that are obtained by
hammering apart rotten logs and
stumps. It is a real sight to see one of
these birds "at work;" the chips really
fly. Our Venezuelan friends call
Woodpeckers, "Carpenter birds." After
seeing a Pileated Woodpecker attacking
a log to get at beetles, you would have
to agree. During fall and colder months,
a variety of fruits such as swamp tupelo,
dogwood and sugarberry also are eaten.
During the mating season the Pileated
Woodpecker is extremely noisy and the
woods ring with its loud calls and the
drumming sounds made by hammering
on dry stubs or on tree trunks. The rau-
cous call, resembling a slower, louder
flicker call and methodical drumming
may carry for long distances. Remember
"Woody the Woodpecker" cartoon? That
delightful subject was modeled after the
Pileated.
Other names: Lord-god, Good-god,
Logcock, Woodchuck, Wood-cady,
Cock-o-the-woods, Woodcock and
Good-god Woodpecker. All these names
certainly seem to try and support the
fact that this is indeed, a powerful avian
species, with a regal attitude and wood
excavating expertise.
According to the Archbold-Audubon
Lake Placid Christmas Bird Count, the
five-year average sightings of our sub-
ject bird stands at 30. This year, the bird
count just mentioned is scheduled for
Tuesday, Dec. 30. If you would like to
participate, call 465-2468, ask for Helen
(she is the coordinator).

Odell was born in Los
Angeles and now makes her
home in Orlando. An avid
reader (her parents tell
everyone they had to move
from their first home
because she finished the
local library), she always
wanted to "fix" stories so the
characters did what she
wanted, in books, television
and the movies. Once she
began writing, she found this
wasn't always possible, as
evidenced when the mystery
she intended to write rapidly
became a romance.

chology from University of

Highlands Soil and Water Conservation District staff attends SECDEA conference


The setting this year for the annu-
al Southeast Conservation District
Employees Association was Pigeon
Forge Tenn. Jackie Bailey, office
manager for Highlands Soil and
Water Conversation District and new
president of the Florida
Conservation District Employees
Association, attended the event
along with me, the Natural
Resources specialist and new treas-
urer for FCDEA. Since being elected
officers for Florida's association, we
wanted to take this wonderful oppor-
tunity to network with members
from other states and learn more
about what the organization is doing.
The SECDEA was formed on July
12, 1993. The association consists of
nine states, which include Alabama,
Florida, Georgia, Kentucky,
Mississippi, North Carolina, South
Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
The district employees of these
states join together each year to
share the knowledge and expertise of
their successful activities with fellow
employees. This creates a stronger
and more professional team which
enriches the conservation programs
across the region.
Some of the many benefits of
being a member of the SECDEA are
professional training, free newslet-
ters, networking, sharing ideas and


recognition of out-
standing employ-
ees. This year's
conference includ-
ed training ses-
sions on grant
writing and digital
photography. In
addition, district
employees learned


News From about new and
The exciting programs
Watershed being implemented
in other states.
Corine Burgess One of the pro-
grams that was shared with the
members was the AgrAbility Project.
This project was created to assist
people with disabilities employed in
agriculture. The project links the
Cooperative Extension Service at a
land-grant university with a private
nonprofit disability service organiza-
tion to provide practical education
and assistance that promotes inde-
pendence in agricultural production
and rural living. The AgrAbility
Project assists people involved in
production agriculture who work
both on small and large operations.
The AgrAbility presenter, Joetta
White, utilized volunteers from the
group to come up and conduct exer-
cises to show the audience how diffi-
cult simple tasks can be if one is dis-


abled. Some of the exercises includ-
ed putting a bolt, washer and nut
together with socks placed on their
hands and making a peanut butter
sandwich with one hand tied behind
their back.
Another example included volun-
teers placing themselves in a wheel-
chair and trying to move from the
device into a stationary chair. What
these demonstrations illustrated was
that people who have disabilities my
have a difficult time performing sim-
ple tasks that we all take for granted.
It was a good program and one that
is assisting hundreds of people in
various states.
The conference was also an
opportunity for all of the state's
presidents to let members know what
they have accomplished in their area.
Many good tips were provided to
association members as well as shar-
ing of great ideas. In addition, funds
were raised for the association
through a silent auction. All of the
districts brought in items for the auc-
tion and more than $1,000 was
raised this year. HSWCD donated a
beautiful caladium plant provided
from Bates Sons and Daughters
Caladiums.
It was a great conference and both
Jackie and I benefited greatly from
attending. There were several mem-

bers who specialize in education and
some new and exciting ideas were
obtained by the two. It will be won-
derful to utilize these new, inventive
ideas in our own Highlands County
schools.
Even though it was very cold
weather for Floridians, the fall col-
ors were breathtaking and it was a
most enjoyable trip. Pigeon Forge is
in the Smokey Mountains of
Tennessee and the sites were magnif-
icent. The conference got Jackie and


me even more motivated and excited
than usual to move forward with
some new ideas and strive to be the
best employees they can be for the
Highlands Sbil and Water
Conservation District.

Specialist with the Highlands County

Spin control will not help Aries on Tuesday


Aries (March 21-April 20) No spin
control can get you out of a tough bind
pn Tuesday, Aries. It's best if you button
your lips and go with the flow. A chance
or redemption arrives soon.
STaurus (April 21-May 21) Rethink
your role in a relationship, Taurus. It's
going nowhere and taking up much of
your time. The time for action is now.
pet moving before it's too late.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) A rough
Start in the'week may have you thinking
it will be a wash-out. Not necessarily. A
chance encounter changes your mind on
Thursday when romance.blossoms.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) Cancer,
money has been flowing out of your
wallet at hurricane wind speeds. Take
that wallet and triple-lock it, then stash
it in a safety deposit box for safe keep-
ing.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Leo, the
stars indicate this is a good time for a
health evaluation. Make an appointment
with your doctor and get a physical.
Money is no object for the next few
weeks.

HOROSCOPE


Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) Life is
playing out like a bad soap opera, Virgo.
But-you'll have a chance to turn it all
around. Surround yourself with better
characters. A change to your home life
is imminent.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Visiting
with family is something you enjoy,
Libra, so do more of it. Foster friend-
ships and your calendar will always be
full. Your relationship hits a rough patch
Monday.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Over-
planning the events of your life will not
make them go the way you desire,
Scorpio. When will you realize that fate
has a hand and things will work out?
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -
'Sagittarius, don't make family matters
worse by contributing to the confusion.
It's time you played a passive role and


simply stayed on the sidelines.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) -
Capricorn, your new job leaves you
feeling satisfied and proud. So don't
worry about what others have to say
about it. Financial worries start to fade
away.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) You're
slowly losing patience, Aquarius, and
you don't know what to do about it.
Deep reflection will give you all the
answers that you seek.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Pisces,
talk over your feelings with someone
else. Keeping them bottled up will only
prove counterproductive. Luck is yours
on Friday. i

senting a very unique per-
formance 3 Redneck Tenors

SFCC Auditorium, Highlands
Campus.
In the melodic wake of the
Three Operatic Tenors, Three
Irish Tenors, and Three Mof
Tenors, comes a new breed of
tenors from more humble ori-
gins 3 Redneck Tenors. The
musical comedy featuring
classically-trained, veteran
artists combines down home
laughs with serious big city
music.
Written by opera veteran
Matthew Lord with music
arranged by award-winning
composer Craig Bohmler, 3


Redneck Tenors features a
cast of veteran Broadway andl
opera stars including John
Wilkerson, Alex Bumpas,
Matthew Lord, and Dinny
McGuire.

a range of familiar and clas-
sics including "Lone Prairie,"
"La Donna e Mobile," "Please
Kind Sir," "Green, Green
Grass of Home," "Staying
Alive," "O Sole Mio,"
"Greensleeves," "Hound
Dog," "Viva Las Vegas,"
"You Light Up My Life," and
"Nessun Dorma."
Join Billy Bob, Billy Joe,
and Billy Billee as they mix
NASCAR with La Boheme,
lite beer with Carmen, and
even kick up a little dust with
Madame Butterfly. Travel
with the three classical
cousins from their modest
beginnings in paris, Texas, all


the way to their triumphant
debut at New York's famous
Carnegie Hall. It's a foot
stompin', knee slapin',
uproariously funny musical
redneck romp, with tunes of
Elvis to Puccini, soul to pop,
and country to opera.
Tickets for this perform-
ance range from $20 to $31
and may be purchased online,
http://performances.south-
florida.edu, 24 hours a day,

Warner University presents 'Sounds

of the Season' next weekend


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE WALES The
Warner University
Department of Fine Arts is
finalizing plans for the annual
Christmas concert.
"Sounds of the Season!"
will be presented in the
Turner Athletic Center on the
west campus of Warner
University at 7 p.m. Friday,
11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday
and 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 7.
This Christmas celebration of
choral music is under the
direction of Dr. Steven Darr,
chairman of the Department
of Fine Arts at Warner
University.
At "Sounds of the Season!"
the Turner Athletic Center is
transformed into a country
winter wonderland with poin-
settias, an iced pond with ice
skaters, a stable and more
than 200 Christmas trees.
Darr has put together various
song groupings that include
favorite Christian hymns,
light-hearted Christmas songs
and selections from the great
holiday classic, "The
Messiah." Accompaniment
will be supported by a profes-
sional string quartet including
Michael Lawson, Laura
Lawson, Laura Greenburg
and K.C. Davidson; Brian


Chance, trumpet; and Bryan
Johnson, tympani as well as
some sound tracks orchestra-
tions.
The 50-voice Warner
University Concert Choir will
be the' core group of singers
for this concert. This choral
ensemble is made up of stu-
dents from the college seen in
both traditional choir robes as
well as red and green holiday
clothes.
Warner University is proud
to have appearances by sever-
al music major graduates.
This will be a time of present
students working with past
students, all sharing their tal-
ents to create the annual
Christmas presentation,
"Sounds of the Season!"
A favorite segment of the
program is the nativity pro-
cessional. This segment por-
trays not only the shepherds
and Wisemen coming to
honor the Christ Child, but
the townspeople bringing
"gifts" to honor Him as well.
This performance of holi-
day music is designed with
the entire family in mind and
is a great way to begin one's
holiday season.

Lake Placid takes


lumps, learns lessons


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
News-Sun sportswriter
LAKE PLACID If you
want to be the best, some-
times you have to play the
best.
The very youthful Green
Dragon basketball team took
their first big lump of the sea-
son as they were pounded by
Class 5A Martin County 103-
45 in front of a home crowd in
Lake Placid.
Putting a team like this on
your schedule was not some-
thing head coach David Veley
wanted to do at the beginning
of the season but
because of schedul- Martin
ing conflicts they
were forced to pick 1
up the game.
Martin County Lake
took the court as the
number-7 team in
Class 5A while also
having a handful of players
ranking in the top 100
prospects in Florida.
The Tigers took the court
on Friday evening with seven
seniors, having lost only one
from last season's 25-2 team.
"We told our guys that if
you want to play at the next
level, then you need to play
teams like this," head coach
David Veley said. "I felt like
our guys played hard and we
had moments, but we got rat-
tled at times and it showed
our youth."
Lake Placid held the game
close in the opening minutes
of the game as they kept the
score at 5-2, but within sec-
onds Martin County had ran
the lead to 19-2.
The potent offense of the
Tigers continued turning
Green- Dragon mistakes' iint
points as they cruised the rest
of the quarter to a 37-12 lead.


[
I


Lake Placid had good looks
in the period, thanks in part to
freshman sensation Deondre
Chisolm who had six points
and several offensive
rebounds.
The Green Dragons ran
step-for-step in the second
quarter as they raced off to an
8-0 run before the Tigers
reeled off an 8-0 run of their
own.
When the buzzer sounded
to end the first half Lake
Placid was down 61-32
despite putting 20 points on
the scoreboard in the period.
The Dragons were
County led offensively by
13 Kirk Veley who had
10 points while
Andre Wilson fin-
Placid ished with 6 points.
5Martin County
Opened up the third
period on a tear as
they jumped out on a 21-2 run
before the Green Dragon
offense could get anything
going.
After getting a couple shots
to fall, the Tigers went on a
scoring binge again as they
scored 18 points to finish the
quarter.
As the fourth quarter came
near the youthful Green
Dragons refused to let down
as they played hard to the
buzzer.
Just like the game started
with a run, it ended with a
run.
Martin County turned
Green Dragon turnovers into
easy buckets to a 12-2 run to
close out the game.
Lake Placid was led on
offense by Chisolm who had
12 points followed by Wilson
and Veley who had ten points
each.
"I thought that Chisolm

Deondre Chisolm goes up for two but has his shot blocked
by 6-foot-6 Casey Oldenmoppen on a play that typified what
the Green Dragons were up against in their 103-45 loss to
state-ranked Martin County Friday night.


played well all night and got
some good looks. Andre and
Kirk also played well for us
down the stretch along with
Travalier Sholtz," said Veley.
"Those guys took some good
shots but we have to get in
better shape if we are going to
run with a team all night
long."
Martin County had six


players score in double digits
on the night with the leading
scorer coming from Tia Harris
who had 17 points. Quamain
Foreman closed out the game
with 16 points while Terrell
Harris had 15 points.
Gillie St. Hill and Mike
Dotson both scored 13 points
and Casey Oldemoppen had
11 points.

Who 'Da Man?'


I suppose in order to
reach the highest level of
any career or endeavor, one
has to have at least a little
bit of the mindset of being
'Da Man' or 'Da Woman'
too, I suppose.
But, as we get reminded
by professional athletes, at
times, at what cost?
A few years back,
Phoenix Suns guard Joe
Johnson couldn't handle
being less than 'Da Man'
on a winning team.
Given the chance to get
into a situation, onto a
team, that didn't have him
being a subordinate to
Amare Stoudamire, Steve
Nash and Sean Marion, he
bolted to the Atlanta
Hawks..
Oh sure, he became 'Da
Man,' the focal point of the
Atlanta offense.
But though they're off to
a 9-6 start this season, up'
until this year, the Joe
Johnson Hawks have been
terrible.
It was also likely just as
much a money grab for
Johnson, obviously, since
being the fourth option on a
team means you're not like-
ly to get the first option
type of contract like the
one Atlanta gave him.
He got paid, he became
'Da Man,' but I sure hope
those kept him happy when
his team was losing most
nights.
Funny thing is, it wasn't
too long later that we start-
ed hearing similar gripes
from Marion.
He was a very good, well
respected player on a win-
ning team but he wasn't
getting the recognition he
felt he deserved.
Marion, too, wanted to
go to a team where the


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne
spotlight would be on him
more.
The Suns soon accommo-
dated him, sending him to
Miami as part of the
Shaquille O'Neal trade.
Now, Marion wasn't
going to be 'Da Man' with
Dwayne Wade around, but
at least he'd now be second
fiddle, rather than third or
fourth.
Well, for a little while
anyway.
He was second fiddle on
a team that turned out to be
awful last season, and now
with Michael Beasley on
board, and the team
improving, Marion isn't too
far removed from his role
and place with Phoenix.
Of course, that trade had
a domino effect which is
now being seen, again with
the Suns.
With O'Neal now in
Phoenix, and the fact that
Shaq is 'Da Man' wherever
he goes, the pecking order
has shifted. '
Whereas it had been
Nash and Stoudamire as the
big wigs, or Stoudamire
and Nash, it's now O'Neal
and the other two in what-
ever order.
Shaq's presence has
pushed Amare further from

Golf Channel comes to Placid Lakes


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
News-Sun sportswriter
LAKE PLACID If you
are a fan of reality television
you will love to know that
reality TV has come to
Highlands County.
The Placid Lakes Country
Club played host to the Golf
Channels "Highway 18" real-
ity golf show.
The show is similar to the
Amazing Race, or Survivor,
where contestants are sent
around the state of Florida to
compete in challenges.
The race covered more
than 1,000 miles, stretching
from St. Augustine to Key
West.
There were road chal-
lenges which would put con-
testants on a roadside driving


range to running at the
Swamp (Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium in Gainesville).
The contest also had a
clubhouse challenge where
contestants were asked to
play a hole or a series of
holes at golf courses that
range from famous champi-
onship courses to Municipal
facilities that are off the beat-
en path.
"Sometime after the Sottile
Golf Tourney a group of guys
came by and played the
course," Placid Lakes head
golf pro Shane Ward said.
"When they were done they
called and asked if we were
interested in having the show.
I thought they were joking."
A few weeks later the Golf
Channel crew were out in the


Turkey


parking lot setting up their
equipment and began filming.
The set up for the show
was five, two-man squads
that were asked to play holes
8, 9, 10, and 11.
One team was exempt
because they had won immu-
nity the week earlier.
Each squad was using a
scramble format with the
teams needing to make a birdie
or better to get off the hole.
The last group to come in
would be eliminated.
"It was neat for our course
to be the first for someone to
be eliminated," said Ward. "I
guess one day we will be
some type of trivia question."
Before coming to Lake
Placid, the contestants were
asked to hit golf balls and


'They called and

asked if we'were
interested in

having the show.

I thought they

were joking.'

SHANE WARD
Placid Lakes golf pro

guess their distance at the
Bluffs in Zolfo Springs.
"I hope the show put
Placid Lakes on the map,"
said Ward. "People have
come up to me and told me
they saw it on TV. We hope
that this gets more people in
to play."

Rather just be 'a Dan'


Continued from 1D
the basket, out of his com-
fort zone and lower on the
totem pole and he's not
happy about it.
He recently gave an
interview with ESPN's
Stephen A. Smith,
Stoudamire said, "You've
got LeBron James who's a
featured guy. You've got
Dwyane Wade. He's a fea-
tured guy. Dwight Howard?
They go to him. Chris
Bosh? They go to him.
Bottom line: I want to be
that guy. I want to show the
league and the world that I
feel like my game has
improved to that level."
Has he not learned from
Joe Johnson?
Does he want to end up a
Clipper? Or even worse, a
Knick?
Ah, the Knicks, where
the poster child of wanting
to be 'Da Man,' Stephon
Marbury doesn't even sit
on the bench anymore.
Not because he's out on
the court, but because he's
been essentially banished
from the team.
So incensed that he's not
be 'Da Man' the last couple
seasons even though his
play and attitude pretty
much took care of that for


him that when he was
told recently that they
needed him to play, he
refused.
Making it to the NBA
would seem to be enough,
with the only other thing to
strive for is to win a cham-
pionship.
That's what it is for most
- they've reached the high-
est of leagues, why not just
be 'da man' on a winning
team rather than 'Da Man'
which may force them to
go to a losing team?
If I ever somehow
worked my way up to be at
Sports Illustrated, or the
Chicago Tribune, I would-
n't insist on being 'Da
Man' like Jay Mariotti
did at the Chicago Sun
Times so often that they
finally got sick of him and
called him on his bluff to
quit.
If I was fortunate enough
to reach that level of my
career, I'd be happy to just
be 'da man' or 'da Dan.'
Heck, if there was anoth-
er Dan there of greater sta-
tus, I could simply be 'a
Dan' and be happy with it.
