I TODAY'S EDITORIAL

An act that goes beyond stupid


tupid is not the word to use regard-
ing Thursday's anthrax hoax at
Florida Hospital Heartland Medical
Center and various Sebring neighbor-
hoods. It went way beyond stupid.


Florida Hospital
employees stayed
busy during scare
Editor:
I would like to take a
moment to publicly thank all
of the employees of Florida
Hospital Heartland who
worked through this recent
terrorist scare.
While the news covered
all of the events outside the
hospital, I don't know if
people can appreciate all of
the work that was happening
inside the hospital. Everyone
pitched in and the patients
were well fed and well cared
for. I know this because my
mother was a patient inside
the hospital. My mother's
care never suffered and I
commend the staff for that.
My mother's nurse alone,
by the time her relief
arrived, had worked a 26-
hour shift. When I went to
visit after the hospital was
opened again, the nurse was
awaiting her relief, but still
had a smile on her face and
a "what can I do to help
you" attitude.
I wantto thank Jayne, the
nurse, and all of her co-
workers and I commend all
of you. You are truly a credit
to the medical profession,
from the housekeepers and
kitchen staff, to the nurses,
and physicians, and every-
one in between: You are the
true heroes in all of this.
I also want to thank Tim
Cook and the Florida
Hospital administration for
the way they handled the sit-
uation. The hotline for fami-
lies was an added bonus, and
I was comforted every time I
phoned for an update. It was
just nice knowing that you
were all there.
Mr. Cook, you should be
proud of your staff and your
facility and I want you to
know that Highlands County
is very fortunate to have
Florida Hospital.
Kathleen MacNeill

Invitation to
important vigil
Editor:
Regarding the editorial, A
Month That Deserves
Attention (News-Sun, March
29) I am writing today to say
how great it is that you have
chosen to publish such an
important article about April
being Child Abuse
Awareness Month. It is esti-
mated that every five min-
utes a child is abused.


TODAY'S LETTERS
This April, I would like to
extend an invitation to the
third annual Shaken Baby
Syndrome Candlelight Vigil
here in Sarasota. More than
S15-20 families affected by
Shaken Baby Syndrome
itself will be in attendance.
Visit our Web site for
more information,
www.sbsresource.com, and I
hope you too can join us in
raising awareness about an
issue that is all to prominent
in our area, in our state, as
well as in the United States
this year. We are honoring
and working with an organi-
zation from New York City
called The Sarah Jane Brain
Foundation, which you can
visit at www.thebrainpro-
ject.org. The speakers at this
event include The Child
Protection Center of
Sarasota, and a spokesperson
from the Hyper Baric
Chamber in St Pete.
Again, thank you for help-
ing us to make the public
aware of how prominent
child abuse is, and how it
has affected those who have
become victims.
Rachel Sumner
Mother to Madilyne
Wentz, victim of Shaken
Baby Syndrome
Sarasota



Child discriminated
against for pre-
kindergarten
Editor:
This is a copy of a letter
to Gov. Crist. I feel that your
paper should also be aware
of this situation:
Dear Governor Crist: I
just found out that my
grandson, who will be 4 on
July 29 of this year is not
eligible to attend a public
school for the pre-kinder-
garten program. It seems that
the only children that can
attend are those that are
"migrants."
I feel that this is a dis-
criminatory practice.
Suddenly the permanent
residents of Highlands
County are the minority,
even though we are the ones

public school funding. In
order for my grandson, or
any other permanent resident
of this county, to attend pre-
kindergarten, the parents
must find a church or private
school that offers pre-kinder-
garten programs. This ruling
makes it difficult for those
of us that are not migrants to


get an equal education for
our children.
.Although pre-kindergarten
is a voluntary program, this
ruling makes it hard for
those of us that who want to
give our children a head
start. Not to mention that
VPK is supposed to be free.
I feel that this is a matter
that should be investigated.
Why should our children be
discriminated against in this
manner?

Great Jehoshaphat! They
never stop! It was devastat-
ing enough that corporate
CEOs succeeded in achiev-
ing the standard of minimum
wages for American workers
while they "earned" billion
dollar profits through out-

enough that they, Wall

companies, nearly destroyed
our economic system
through criminal skulldug-
gery.
It is even more outrageous
that they managed to manip-
ulate clauses to protect
bonuses for criminal actions,
failed performance and
secrecy. They continue to
dismiss what occurred before
January 2009 and continue
to harp on the "excesses" of
the Obama administration,
even while they failed to pay
taxes in excess of $200 mil-

cally nullify any "legal"
right to bonuses which
reward obscene failure. Yes,.
they had contracts (Wait.
Didn't the auto workers have
pension contracts? Didn't
help. Didn't federal laws
insure pensions for millions
of workers only to see them
disappear? Corporate raiders,
Enron, etc.). And AIG wants
to retain those who created
this "black hole" of a disas-
ter?
Not only do working peo-
ple (they still have jobs?)
earn less; prices have steadi-
ly increased. Now corpora-
tions have added fees for
unemployment benefits. This
makes Scrooge look like a
piker. What words can
describe this egregious poli-
cy? Since they are supported
by the Christian Coalition,
"mortal sin" would not be
adequate. Even "sacrilege"
seems a poor choice. Christ

ers out of the Temple comes
to mind; sadly, He's not
here. They never stop-invet-
erate.
There are those who fault
me for blaming President
Bush II for this catastrophe,
but they did not question the
charges made, which evi-
dence abundantly verifies.
Evidence keeps piling up
that 90 percent occurred
before 2009!
The Republicans claim to
want smaller government
and fewer taxes. They were
the government for eight
years. President (Bill)
Clinton and Vice President
(Al) Gore actually reduced
government and created a
surplus; Republicans
increased government and
created a $5 trillion deficit.
Today, they obstruct
President Obama's effort to
stem the damage and right

You should think


before you get angry


Last weekend Don and I
were shopping at a store.
Which store isn't important.
What happened there is.
We were waiting around
when we suddenly heard
someone shouting. A glance
at the next department over
showed a man yelling at an
employee behind the count-
er.
On second thought,
"yelling" is too tame a word
for what was going on. This
man was verbally attacking
the poor guy. Not content
with that, I could hear him
slapping stuff down on the
counter.
The whole thing drew my
attention. I began to drift
towards the sounds of anger.
Don followed behind me.
Neither of us said anything
as we got closer and closer
to the angry voice.
When I could see what
was going on, the whole
scene took a worse tone.
There was the owner of the
voice, yelling at the smaller
man behind.the counter. The
angry customer had a shop-
ping cart with him. And a
little boy in the shopping
cart.
That upset me. I love kids.
Sometimes I sit with a
younger child at worship and
let them amuse themselves
with my PDA. Seeing a child
as a part of this scene hit a
nerve.
I was already in a bad
mood before the yeller. I'd
been dealing with neck
spasms for a number of
days, and had been flirting
with a migraine headache
that day. The sight of a man
losing control as he was in
front of his (I assumed) child
just about put me over the
edge.
I almost stepped forward.
I'm not sure what I \ould',c
done. Maybe remind the
angry man there was an
impressionable child wit-
nessing the altercation.
Maybe tell him he was act-
ing badly and should take a
moment to calm down.
But I didn't. No one did.
The man finally finished
what he was doing. He
grabbed the cart and stalked
off, muttering. The little boy


Laura's
Look
Laura Ware
kept his eyes on the man,
silent.
Once the man left, the
employee called his manag;
er. Another woman and I
told the manager what we'd'
seen and heard. The shaken'-
employee was given a break,
and people continued their:
business.
I've thought a lot about
those few minutes this past
weekend. I don't know why'
he was mad at the employee.
Maybe he had a good reason.
I've had to deal with incomn-
petent store people in the
past. And yeah, it's annoy-
ing.
But there's annoying, and
there's crossing a line. This
man crossed a line. The ver-
bal abuse he heaped on that
man didn't get his problem"
solved. And he was wrong. I
was surprised he didn't take'
a swing at the poor employ-
ee he appeared that out of
control. How can he look
himself in the mirror and say
he behaved correctly?
Then there's the fact that I
pretty much stood around
and didn't do anything. Days
later, it still bothers me that I
didn't. Don says it was a sit-
uation that called for several
burly men, not a short
woman. It's possible he's
right.
But I can still see that lit-
tle boy, his huge blue eyes
staring up at the man as he
was wheeled away. No
alarm, no crying. Just a
silent staring, as if he were
accustomed to this man los-
ing his temper in front of
him.
And that image makes me
regret not doing something.
So I'm doing something
now, If the above description
fits you, r'l.ic rethink your
behavi or.
Don't do it for me. Do it
for the small boy with the
big blue eyes. Please.

dent. She can be contacted by

Members of the Sottile family wait for the jury's decision to be read on Thursday.


Continued from page LA
May 8.
"The office is gratified of
the resulting verdict," said
Chip Thullbery. office
spokesman for State's
Attorney Jerry Hill. "And we
are glad of the hard work the
jury put into the case."
The jury requested a tran-
script.. ofQuentin Kinder's
testimony around 3 p.m., less
than two .hours after the
deliberations began.
SKinder was in the-car with
Altersberger and fled into.the
orange grove when if was
pulled.over by Sottile.
-Kinder's testimony was
touched on briefly during the
defense's closing statement.
Kinder said Altersberger,
who pled guilty March 13 to
the killing, said he was going
to "'shoot." not "kill" Sottile,
48, when the 20-year FHP
veteran pulled their car over
on U.S. 27 just north of Lake
Placid,-said defense attorney
Deborah Goins.
She said that prosecutor
Steve Houchin, while ques-
tioning Kinder. wanted him
to say "kill." when instead he
said "shoot."
There was not a copy oJf
tht testimony available aind
there was a different court
reporter working Thursday
than the one who took the
transcript of Kinder's testi-


money on Monday. the first
day of the trial.
A letter was passed from
the judge to the jury stating
the following:
"No. there is no transcript
of that testimony so you will
have to rely on your collec-
tive memory."
Houchin said this was not
unusual, and could have pos-
Ssibly arisen due to a dispute
,between jurors as tb what
exactly was said.
'Kinder's voice was the
most difficult to understand,
another factor Houchin said-
could account for the tran-
script request.
He called Kinder's testi-
mony "critical" to some parts
of the hearing.
It was shortly after asking
:the question that the jury
returned with its recommen-
dation.
S While the jury was deliber-
ating, Houchin said overall
the hearing "pretty much
went like we expected."'
SAggravating and mitigat-.
ing factors are what the jury
Shad to consider when making
their recommendation to
Hunter. Two of the aggravat-
ing factors the jury were to
consider were that Sottile
was working as-: a law
enforcement officer and that
Sthe shooting was "cold. cal-
Sculated and premeditated."


Altersberger
The cold, calculated, pre-
meditated aggravator was hit
on by prosecuting attorney)
Paul Wallace when he made
his closing statement.
"He didn't start to fire at
Sottile, he didn't because of
the cold, calculating manner,
in which he intended to shoot
and to take the life of a total-
ly unknown man." he said.
"Why that instead of getting
out and firing?"
Wallace said the manner in
which Altersberger. shot
Sottile was cold and calculat-
ed because he first put his
hands up and "lulled Sottile
into that moment of relax-
ing."
"Only at that moment he
fired the shot," he said. "This
is a person who is very devi-
ous, calculating and evil." He
called it a "calculating, pur-
poseful decision," and asked
for "justice."
"He has forfeited his right
to be able to live," he said.
"The death penalty is war-
ranted in this case and we ask
you for nothing less than
that."
Gpins argued that life in
jail "does not condone the
killing."
"It does not diminish the,
life of Trooper Sottile," she.
said. ,"At the very least
Joshua Altersberger will die
in prison."

- The arrest comes alter the
highlands Counts Sheriff's
;Dffice received a 911 call
Phursdad at approximately
*


2:54 a.m. from Florida
Hospital stating that an
envelope containing a pow-
der like substance was found
by an employee on their
vehicle in the hospital park-
ing lot as they were leaving
work.
The employee brought the
suspicious substance inside
the hospital. Due to the
nature of the substance, the
hospital was put on lock-
down.
After the initial report, the
Sheriff's Office began
receiving numerous reports
of envelopes in residential
mailboxes that had similar
contents.
The community center at
Sun :'N Lake was also
locked dow n after a resident
brought one of the opened
envelopes inside the build-


ing.
The lockdowns remained
in place until after sunset on
Thursday, when testing in
Tampa revealed that the
powder was not harmful,
As of Friday morning, 32
different locations had been
identified were suspicious
letters' "were "found and-
reported to local law
enforcement. Another enve-
lope was found on a car at


the hospital Friday morning,
but it wasn't a new prank,
just one that liad been over-
looked the day before
While the majority of the
locations were within Sun
'N Lake, there were a few
outside the subdivision,
such as neighborhoods
across U.S. 27 from the hos-
pital, as' well as on Sparta
Circle iand DeSotd City
Road.

plan for the worst and hope
for the best."
,bhe explainedd that
1'-ffieland .Securi -funds
received in the past meant
the hospital had the special
equipment and training need-
ed for just this kind of situa-
tion.
She added that the previ-
ous expansion and upgrades
of the emergency room pro-
vided the medical staff the
flexibility they needed to
keep the hospital's operation
on track.
"We ramped up on a lot of
the extra facilities and
brought in extra staff to
expedite service. Looking at
it, it was a great success. Our
training has really paid off,"
she said, unable to keep from
glowing with pride.
In fact, Friday a visitor
could see in the staff the
residue of excitement and
satisfaction. Everyone was'
smiling and moving with
energy, even though many
had to be exhausted given the
work load of the previous 24
hours.
Getting patients where
they needed to go was the
main priority, D'Amico
explained, a challenging task
on a routine day when per-
haps 40 to 50 people are
seen. On Thursday, the emer-
gency room processed over
100.
Incoming patients were
sorted into three categories:
Critical, urgent and non-
urgent patients. Non-urgent
patients comprise the biggest
volume, and critical patients
take the most time. By sort-
ing. out the non-urgent ,and
using the area normally
reserved for out-patient sur-
gery preparation, the medical
staff was able was able to
streamline the process and


keep the line of patients mov-
ing.
Of the roughly 100 people
seen, 35'had to be admitted,
More than once D'Amico
complimented the hospital's
staff, from the physicians -
like Dr. Vernon Ni r Murplh -
who closed their practices to
come into help, to nurses
who arrived on the scene
even though it was their day
off, to the dietitians wlho kept
everyone fed and the house-
keepers who 'made extra
rounds keeping trash bins
from overflowing and linens
on beds.
"I don't even know where
to start," said Deborah Baker,
director of critical carq.
"Everybody pulled together
and worked as a team.
Anything we needed we gdt
- monitors, staff, whatever,
it was there. The attitude
was, 'What do you need me
to do, I'll make it happen.' I
didn't have to ask.
"Even the patients were
patient," she said, "I didn't
see a lot of community
panic."
In fact, both Baker and
D'Amico said the range of
patient complaints reflected a
typical day. There was.no rise
in heart attacks, or anyone
worried about anthrax expo-
sure.
Because the emergency
began in the early morning it
took a while for the stream of
patients to start, but once
they began to arrive, it was
steady for 24 hours. The
emergency room was still
busy late Friday morning.
"When the code yellow
ended (about 7:30 p.m.
Thursday night) you could
hear people, whooping all
through the' hospital,"
D'Amico said.

able database to find the best value's in their
own backyard. The campaign will continue

enthusiasm towards this program. Although
the worldwide economic crisis, there is still


something each of us can do to boost our
local economy and protect jobs in Sebring,"
Pallone said.

Holding up an Our Energy, Our Future sign up card, Peace River Electric Cooperative
CEO Bill Mulcay'warns customers at the annual meeting of higher electric bills in com-
ing months.'Electric cooperatives all across the nation are supporting a unified grass-
roots initiative, named Our Energy, Our Future, designed to get the attention of law-
makers with a message that opposes additional taxes on electricity.


PRECO CEO warns members


coal tax will increase bills


Special to the News-Sun
WAUCHULA An estimated group of
more than 1,500 'attended Peace River
Electric Cooperative's (PRECO) recent 69th
annual meeting in Wauchula. Registered
members and their families enjoyed the
many activities, food, and a picnic atmos-
phere. An assortment of public information
booths from'various counties in PRECO's
service territory welcomed visitors with
brochures and token give-away items.
Each year's meeting provides the mem-
bers an opportunity to learn about the busi-
ness of the cooperative and vote on appropri-
ate issues. The business meeting assumed a
somber tone as Bill Mulcay, PRECO's CEO,
warned the members that impending climate
legislation could affect their electric bills.
"There are plans to raise your electric bills
by $20 a month, possibly $30, or maybe even
as high as $50," shared Mulcay. "That comes
from the President's 2010 preliminary budg-
et, in which he wants to add a carbon tax on
coal."
Congress is currently considering climate
change laws which would tax the energy sec-
tor for carbon emissions. A carbon tax,
sometimes referred to as "cap and trade".or
"coal tax," would be passed on to American
consumers as an added expense on their
electric bill.
"Many people say they don't mind paying


a little extra to clean up emissions, protect
the environment, or develop the technology
we need to clean up our air. But if you think
that money will be used to achieve those
things or address global warming, it's not.
Simply, it's to pay for programs," he added.
"It's the President's new source of revenue
for many of the programs he will be propos-
ing." r
Mulcay pointed out that electric coopera-
tives all across the nation are supporting a
unified grassroots initiative, named "Our
Energy, Our Future," designed to get the
attention of lawmakers with a message that
opposes additional taxes on electricity.
Holding up an Our Energy, Our Future sign
up card, he added, "If the funding of pro-
grams through your electric bill bothers you,
fill out this card and we will contact. your
elected representatives on your behalf,
telling them 'No' to this carbon tax."
SPRECO members signed more than 900
cards at the event, overwhelmingly coming
out against any proposed increase in taxes on
electric bills. In the past year, more than
4,000 PRECO members have joined the Our
Energy, Our Future initiative to keep electric
bills reasonable and affordable.
PRECO serves nearly 35,000 consumers
in Highlands, Brevard, DeSoto, Hardee,
Hillsborough, Indian River,. Manatee,
Osceola, Polk and Sarasota counties.


New tax breaks for

retirees in 2009


It's no news
flash that people
who invest in the
stock market saw
their account val-
ues drop signifi-
cantly in the last
six months. For
those already
retired or fast
approaching, the
impact was espe-
cially painful,
since it will be
much more diffi-


cult for their investments
to recover value in time to
fund their retirement.
However, there are
recent positive develop-
ments for retirees looking
to save money from an
unlikely source: federal
income taxes. The govern-
ment recently made
changes to.the tax code
that can help lower your
tax load and more are
likely once details of the
economic stimulus package
gets ironed out.
No 2009 mandatory
retirement plan with-
drawals. One of the key
benefits of participating in
a 401(k), traditional IRA or
other retirement plan
where you contribute pre-
tax dollars is that your
contributions lower your
taxable income; plus, your
contributions and their
investment earnings are
allowed to grow taxfree
until withdrawn after
retirement a time when
most people's income, and
therefore, their tax rate, is
lower than during working
years.
However, to ensure that
you eventually do pay
taxes on these funds, the
IRS mandates that people
over the age of 70 1/2 must
withdraw a minimum
amount of their assets and '
pay taxes on them each
year. (Roth IRAs are
exempt since their deposits
have already been taxed.)


Here's how it
works: If you
were at least 70
1/2 in 2008, your
minimum with-
drawal for 2008
was calculated
based on your
account's value
on Dec. 31,2007,
Unfortunately,
many people's
retirement
accounts dimin-
ished consider-


ably in 2008, so they were
forced to take a withdrawal
that is a.much larger per- ,
centage than if it had been.
based on the account's
value at year's end.
Although Congress did-,
n't amend the IRS code in
time to suspend these
mandatory withdrawals for,
2008, it did pass legislation
that will allow you to
forego 2009 withdrawals if
you wish. This means you,
have the option to leave .,
your account untouched in,
hopes that the market ,
might improve and you can
recover some losses before
having to withdraw the
money and pay taxes on it.
Direct charitable dona-
tions from IRAs. The gov-.
ernment also resurrected a:
popular tax-relief policy .
that allows people over 70.
1/2 to donate up to
$100,000 to charities from
traditional or Roth IRAs
without first having to-
declare the distribution'as.
taxable income and then -
deducting the donation as a
charitable contribution.
This policy, which
expires at the end of 2009,
particularly benefits people
who don't itemize deduc-,
tions, since they wouldn't-
otherwise receive a tax
deduction for their charita-
ble contributions. It also
benefits retirees who want
to contribute over 50 per-
cent of their adjusted gross

Some taxpayers feel

like the 'meat' in the

Sandwich Generation


Special to the News-Sun
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -
Americans are living longer,
parenthood is coming later
and later, and more people
are finding themselves car-
ing for an elderly parent
while also raising their own
children. ThiS sandwich
generation not only brings a
new level of life challenges,
but also some unique tax sit-
uations and benefits;
One out of eight
Americans age 40-60 is rais-
ing a child and caring for a
parent at home, according to
the Pew Research Center.
Many may be able to claim
deductions related to caring
for a parent ranging from
medical, expenses to
dependent care.There is a
five-point testto help deter-
mine whether someone is a
dependent.
The taxpayer must
provide more than 50 per-
cent of the individual's sup-
port costs.
The individual must
either live with the taxpayer
all year or be related (such


as a parent, grandparent,
stepparent, aunt or uncle).
The individual's gross
income may not exceed the
exemption amount, which is
$3,500 for 2008.
The individual must
not file a joint return for the
year (except to claim a
refund of taxes withheld).
The individual must be
a U.S. citizen, a U.S. nation-
al, or a resident of the U.S.,
Canada, or Mexico.
For taxpayers covering a
child's college tuition, the
most recent stimulus bill
expands certain provisions.
Taxpayers now may be able
to claim up to $2,500 for
certain college expenses for
a dependent in the first four
years of higher education.
Also, certain technology
expenses could be qualified
expenses for a 529 plan.

It was probably wise of
Bears General Manager Jerry
Angelo to have the deal go
down on April 2.
For had it been said that
Sthe Chicago franchise of the
National Football League
had landed a top-notch quar-
terback a day earlier, nobody
that knows this team would
have accepted it as anything
more than an April Fool's
Day joke.
It's shocking in two parts,
in that, 'da Bears don't do
Splashy when it comes to big
moves, or they don't do big
when it comes to splashy
moves.
Secondly, when was the
last time the team had a Pro
Bowl level player at the
most important spot on a
football field?
The Dolphins had a tough
period of time there, post

And sure, the Bucs
haven't exactly had Hall of
Famers taking snaps, at least
that performed at that level
while with the team, but
they've only existed since
the '70s.
The Bears have been in
existence as long as the
league has and have one
quarterback in Canton, and
he last played in the '40s.
OK, coming out of col-
lege, Jim McMahon was a
pretty ballyhooed selection

And yes, he was a winner,
though his stats never
amounted to much seeing as
how he was on the injured
reserve most of his career.
There are, however, reser-

Rewis' Streaks edge out

son's Wildcats


News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE
Hardee head coach Steve Rewis goes over the ground rules before Friday's game
against father Hoppy's Blue Streaks.


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
WAUCHULA The first
of two of the annual father-
son day that is the meeting of
the Sebring and Hardee base-
ball teams went the father's
way Friday night as the Blue
Streaks, under the guidance
of Hoppy Rewis, got past son
Steve's Wildcats by a 4-2
score.
And it started with a
bang as Sebring short- Set
stop Cody Higgins
launched a lead-off
home run in the top of
the first. Ha
"That was nice to
see," the elder Rewis
said. "Cody does a
good job as a lead-off
hitter, but sometimes he can
be too patient and take too
many pitches. It's nice to get
things started with a walk,
but it can be nice to start with
a big hit that sends the mes-
sage to the other team that we
can hit your pitcher."
And hit Sebring did,
amassing 12 hits on the
night, having a runner reach
base in every inning and hav-
ing runners in scoring posi-
tion in all but one.
But the Hardee defense did
its part to limit the damage
the dings were doing.

"With a lot of teams, hit-
ting like we did, it could have
been an 11-run game," the
Sebring skipper said. "But
they're always a good defen-
sive team. The balls hit near
them, they're going to make
the play. They don't give you
that extra out very often."
Fortunately, while the
offense did cash in a few
opportunities, the Blue
Streak defense was
ing just as stingy and the
pitching of starter
Josh Chavis, with two
innings of Higgins
dee relief, kept the 'Cats
from mounting too
many threats.
"Josh hasn't pitched
much this year, and never
more than a couple innings
so we wanted to give him a
chance to get out there,"
Rewis said. "We wanted five
from him and that's what he
gave us and Cody has really
evolved into our go-to guy.
He seems to be a little more
intense when he comes in
relief."

milestone, Sheffield reached
a contract agreement with
New York on Friday, three
days after he was released
by the Detroit Tigers in a
surprising move.
Just hours before opening
their beaming new ballpark
Friday night with an exhibi-
tion game against Boston,
the Mets made another
splash by acquiring the out-


spo ene3 e I 1 .
He is expected to. be in
New York on Saturday and
the deal is contingent on
him passing a physical, gen-
eral manager Omar Minaya
said.
"Gary gives us another
element in the lineup and he
gives us a different intensi-
ty, just because of the com-
petitive guy that he is,"
Minaya said at Citi Field.
The 40-year-old slugger
provides the Mets with a
right-handed power bat,
something they need to help
balance the batting order.

was already set at the corner
outfield spots with Ryan
Church in right and Daniel
Murphy in left both left-

Mets manager Jerry
Manuel said the team would

Streaks start stretch

with squeaker


Continued from 1B
2-0 first-inning advantage.
Hardee evened things with
two in the bottom of the sec-
ond, but Chavis got into a
groove from there, surrender-
ing just one more hit before
giving way to Higgins one
batter into the sixth.
In the meantime, the
Streaks added the insurance
runs they'd need when
Hoffner reached on a rare
error before Chavis singled
to- right and Evan Lewis
scored both runners with a


'We usually start
playing better
from this point
on.'
HOPPY REWIS
Sebring head coach
shot up the middle in the
fifth.
And so the final slate of
the schedule gets started on a
good note, with eight games


remaining until the District
Tournament gets underway
April 27 at Firemen's Field.
"We usually start playing
better from this point on,"
Rewis said. "This is one that
could have gone either way,
but it's nice to get the win
before we go out to Braden
River."
The trip to face the Pirates
is Tuesday before Sebring
stays a little closer to home
with a cross-county contest at
Avon Park Friday.

Pasco keeps pressure on Lady Panthers


Continued from 1B
run made it 7-3 after two..
Another run was tacked
onto the lead with a Justine
McCoy RBI in .the fourth,
but the Lady Panther come-
back was soon at hand.
Kara Watson and Lander
both reached on errors to
start the fifth before each
were knocked in on base hits
from Fried and Lara Helton.
Cassady Faircloth then
ripped a single to score
Fried and Randolph was
intentionally walked to load
the bases when -the fun
began.
During Dee Thompson's
at bat, a passed ball allowed
Helton to scoot in from third.
and move Faircloth' and
Randolph to third and sec-
ond, respectively.
When another pitch got
away, Faircloth came in as
the toss toward home wasn't
handled cleanly.
As the ball was trying to


be corralled by the Hawks,
Randolph followed
Faircloth in for two scores
on a passed ball that never
went more than ten feet
from home plate.
When the dust from the
inning settled, the Panthers
were on top 9-8.
The Hawks went down in
order in the bottom of the
fifth and South Florida
loaded the bases in the top
of the sixth, but couldn't get
any insurance runs across.
That hurt as Hillsborough
then tied it on a play nearly.
as odd as the two-run passed
ball.
With Danielle Chapman
on third with one out, a St.
Amant pop-up went sky-
ward foul between home
plate and first base.
, Ra dolph came charging
in to make a nice snare, but
with Fried also racing
toward the play, home was
left open for Chapman to


come in and score the tying
run.
The Panthers regained the
lead in the top of the seventh
with Randolph scoring on a
Watson fly to right, but the
Hawks had one more
answer.
With two out and two on,
the potential game-ending
play was mishandled, load-
ing the bases and bringing
up Ward.
Four-for-four at that point
in the second game, Ward
ended it with her fifth hit,
fourth double and fourth
RBI.
"We just shot ourselves in
the foot," head coach Carlos
Falla said. "We lost that
game in the first couple
innings on routine plays.
And then at the end, we had
the third out and boom, they
get the game with the one
hitter we didn't want to have
1p."
And just like that. the race,


for the final playoff spot got
a bit tighter as Pasco-
Hernando, who SFCC just
swept, took two from Polk,
both 3-2 scores, to inch to
within two games with four
left to play.
And those four for South
Florida are no cakewalks.
"We have to win at least
one game each against two
teams that have hurt us,"
Falla said. "We didn't even
come close to Manatee when
we faced them and our win
with St. Pete, we got lucky
ini the bottom of the seventh
and we've got to play better
than that. We control our
destiny, but we have to win
at least one, each next week
or we're out."
The Lady Panthers are at
Manatee Tuesday and at St.
Petersburg Thursday for
their final playoff push.

Nine-time Al-Star joins his eighth team


Continued from 1B
Manuel 'said.
"What this does for us, it
really creates some depth in
the team," Manuel said. "I
believe that in the course of
162 regular-season games,
depth is the one thing that is
normally overlooked."
Manuel. spoke to
Sheffield and explained
exactly what sort of role he
envisions for the nine-time
All-Star.
"If he can be close to
something that he's been,
that could be a tremendous,
tremendous help," Manuel
said. "He lengthens us out a
bit with presence."
'Church seemed comfort-
able with the move, too.
"He's more than wel-
come. He's a great player.
He's just another piece for
us," Church said. "I can't
control what they do."
Sheffield is one big swing
from becoming the 25th
player to reach 500 home
runs.
The Tigers will have to
pay $13.6 million of his $14
million contract this year
while the Mets get him for
the major league minimum
of $400,000.
"That'll be a big stage for
his 500th," Detroit manager
Jim Leyland said in Atlanta,


'If he can be
close to

something that
he's been, that
could be a

tremendous,
tremendous

help.'

JERRY MANUEL
N.Y. Mets manager
where his team played an
exhibition game against the
Braves.
Minaya said Sheffield has
always wanted to play for.
the Mets ever since his
uncle, Dwight Gooden, was
a star pitcher for them in the
1980s and 90s.
Sheffield' played across
town with the Yankees from
2004-06, putting up two big
seasons followed by an
injury-shortened one before
he was traded to the Tigers.
Sheffield was Detroit's
designated hitter before he
was released.
Shoulder injuries and
other problems limited him
to 114 games and a .225
average with, 19 homers and
57 RBIs last season.


He hit .178 with five
homers in 45 spring training
at-bats this year.
When 'the Tigers released
him, they said it was
because they wanted to be a:
more versatile team. Now'
back in the National
League, Sheffield will have
to readjust to playirig the
field.
How well he can do that
remains to be seen.
"It's good. I hope he
comes.in with a good atti-
tude," Mets first baseman
Carlos Delgado said. "I'm
sure he wants to prove to
people that he can play."
Philadelphia, the Mets'
biggest rival in the NL East,
expressed interest in
Sheffield soon after he was
cut. The Phillies also could
use a right-handed bat.
Cincinnati manager
Dusty Baker, a longtime
friend, called Sheffield to
offer a part-time role with
the Reds.
S"Sheff just called me, too,
left me a message," Baker
said Friday in Zebulon,


.N.C., before the Reds' exhi-
-lbition game against a col-
lection of their top minor
leaguers. "He told me he
was going to sign with the
Mets because he has a home
in New York. He thought
that was the best situation
for him. I'm glad for him,
and .sad for us because I
know him personally."
The addition of Sheffield
could mean Marlon
Anderson's days with the
*Mets are numbered.
A pinch-hitting specialist,
.he batted .210 with a homer
and 10 RBIs last year.
Sheffield has also played
for Milwaukee, San Diego,
iFlorida, the Los Angeles
Dodgers and Atlanta.
He is a .292 lifetime hitter
and ranks 27th on the career
list with 1,633 RBIs.
"He'll be a great asset. He
plays hard every day,"
Delgado said.

'da Bears latest


punky QB


Continued from 1B
whiny little baby.
Funny how perceptions
changed when I heard the
news that he's now on MY
team.
They really haven't
changed, actually, but to be
tantalized with a talent level
not seen since the days of
Franklin Delano Roosevelt, I
suppose overlooking the per-
ceptions is more accurate.
I mean, after head coach
Mike Shanahan was let go,
Cutler demanded to be trad-
ed, then the new coach sup-
posedly tries to trade him
without his knowing, and he
Makes a big stink about it
and wants to be traded.
Isn't that what he wanted
in the first place?
Why make a big deal out
of it when that's what you
wanted anyway?
He should have just said,
'oh, that deal didn't work
out, well, keep looking for
one that will.'
Looking back to the
McMahon era, the 'punky
QB' also had apparent prob-
lems with authority, often
went his own way so in a
way, Bears fans are at last
used to a quarterback who's
kind of an idiot.


And what happened with.
the Broncos was between the
player and management, had
nothing to do with the team
or the other players.
And believe me, when it-
comes to fans siding with a;
Bear player or Bear manage-
ment the player will get ,
the benefit of the doubt
every time.
Chicago fans have been
treated to 23 different start-.
ing quarterbacks since 1996
- and we now finally have -
one that looks to actually bp
one of a caliber that can help
the team for years to come;
that can actually give the
team a legitimate passing
attack.
The worry now is, though,
that Cutler turns out to be I
more of what we've become
used to and that castoff Kyle
Orton, sent to Denver to
complete the deal, will flour-
ish in a new system and
become a Pro-Bowl caliber:
quarterback.
Then we'd know the prob-
lem isn't with Bear quarter-
backs, it's with the Bears.

Hauser Accredited Teacher


Special to the News-Sun .
SEBRING Judy Nicewicz has returned
from two weeks in Tulsa, Okla., where she
studied with the "First Lady of Decorative
Painting" and completed Priscilla Hauser's
100 hours of study in the field of Decorative
Painting. This has led her to the title of
Priscilla Hauser Accredited Teacher.
Nicewicz said it was a very intensive two
weeks of painting everyday and homework
in the evening. The course included the
basics of blending, shading, using mediums,
hinting on wood, metal, glass, pat blend-
ing, faux finishing, making stains, and
nany other tips and techniques.
SNicewicz left on March 13 and drove to
Vulsa to begin the training on March 15 and


end it on March 27. She managed to leave
Tulsa before the huge snowstorm hit.
She will return on April 25 to complete
another week with Hauser for her Rose
Seminar. Once she, has returned home and
organized all the materials, she will begin
teaching the Hauser method as well as the
Onestroke Painting Technique.
Nicewicz offers classes in Onestroke
painting, high definition painting, glass,
landscapes, fabric, sculpey clay and mixed
media.
She will be teaching children this sum-
mer at the Highlands Art League and the

AP Library sets movies up for April


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK The Avon
Park Library, 100 Museum
Ave., will host the following
movies on Saturdays at 2
p.m. during the month of
April:
April 11 "Big
Trouble in Little China,"
directed by John Carpenter in
1986, 99 minutes.
Intentionally designed to
awaken memories of the old
days of serials at the
Saturday matinee, this Kurt
Russell vehicle is a laugh-a-
minute cliffhanger. Russell is
a pig trucker who gets
involved in the quirky subter-
ranean world of Chinatown
in San Francisco. If special
effects are your thing, this
movie is for you. Rated PG.
April 18 "Frantic,"
directed by Roman Polanski'
in 1988, 120 minutes.
Harrison Ford carries this
clever chase movie. Harrison
and his wife arrive in Paris
for a medical convention and
while they unpack and he
showers, she .'inexplicably
disappears. The remainder of


the movie involves his search
for her. Best line of the movie
comes when an officious
U.S. Embassy underling sug-
gest that maybe she had a run
a way with another man.
"That's my wife you're talk-
ing about and your wife that
you're thinking about."
Rated R for no apparent rea-
son.
April 25 "Gentlemen
Prefer Blondes," directed by
Howard Hawke in 1953, 91


minutes. While the plot, even
by 1953, had been reworked
in so many films one may
well roll the eyes. -Jane
Russell and Marilyn Monroe
at their peaks save this film
in such grand fashion that it
deserves re-showing.
Two chorines looking for
rich husbands take jobs as
entertainers on a trans-
Atlantic passenger ship. With
that the antics begin with
great songs and loads of fun.

Ag Literacy Day brings agriculture into the classroom


Recently, staff
from the Highlands
Soil and Water
Conservation District
visited some of our
local schools.
"These Florida
Farms!," a book writ-
ten by Gary Seamans
and illustrated by
Mike Wright, is this New
year's pick to be read
to students attending Wat
Heartland Christian
School and Lake Corin
Placid Elementary
School. This year marks the
sixth annual Florida
Agriculture Literacy Day,
which is a program by
Florida Agriculture in the
Classroom, Inc. (FAITC) and


is designed to help teachers
and students gain a better
understanding of Florida
agriculture. The book was
written for young children at
a pre-school and elementary
school level.
Every year, volunteers are
asked to visit local schools
around the state and read a
special book written for
FAITC. This year's selection,
"These Florida Farms!," is a


vs From
The
;ershed
e Burgess


rhyming book in
which students learn
about Florida agri-
culture by touring
farms around the
state with a safari
guide. It is the hope
of FAITC that by
helping to educate
the state's future vot-
ers and elected offi-
cials about the sig-
nificance of
Florida's food and
fiber system, our
sunshine state will


have a brighter future and the
* agricultural industry that we
all rely on so much, will be
more secure.
Clell Ford, Lakes manager,
will visit Heartland Christian
School's kindergarten, first
and second grade classes.
Last year Clell read to about
40 children. He said, "The
kids are always excited when
you interact with them, they
learned a lot. It's good to
have them ask questions and
realize that they know that
there are farms with ostriches
and gators on them!" The
experience was a positive one
and he always looks forward

kindergarten class at Lake Placid Elementary School.


to Ag Literacy Day because
he enjoys being a part of this
important learning experi-
ence. He looks forward to
reading to the students again
this year. *
The six kindergarten class-
es at Lake Placid Elementary
School were selected by Erin
McCarta, Lakes Management
assistant, for the reading.
"Actually, I was surprised
that the kids were a little
more aware of what kind of
farms are out there. I didn't
expect them to know so


much. The kids I read to
were more aware of agricul-
ture than the children por-
trayed in the book."
The Agriculture Council of
America and its supporters
are committed to increasing.
public awareness about
American agriculture.
The National Ag Day pro-
gram believes that every
American should:
Understand how food,
fiber and renewable resource
products are produced.
Value the essential role


of agriculture in maintaining
a strong economy.
+ Appreciate the role
agriculture plays in providing
safe, abundant and affordable
products.
+ Acknowledge and con-
sider career opportunities in
the agriculture, food, fiber
and renewable resource
industries."
Here are some fun facts
about agricultural products.
Share them with your kids
and grandchildren.
Americans today con-
sume 17.3 billion quarts of
popped popcorn each year.
The average American eats
about 68 quarts.
The same chemicals
that give tart cherries their
color may relieve pain better
than aspirin and ibuprofen in
humans.
+ Lettuce is a member of
the sunflower family.
+ The bright orange color
of carrots tells you they're an
excellent source of Vitamin
A, which is important for
good eyesight, especially at
night. Vitamin A helps your
body fight infection, and
keeps your skin and hair


healthy.
Over 200 million
pounds of blueberries are
grown every year in North
America.
The egg shell may have
as many as 17,000 tiny pores-
over its surface. Through
them, the egg can absorb fla-
vors and odors. Storing them
in their cartons helps keep
them fresh.
Eggs age more in one .
day at room temperature thap.
in one week in the refrigera-
tor.
Bananas are most likely;
the first fruit ever to be
grown on a farm.
Apples are a member of
the rose family.

Don't put off responsibility any longer, Taurus


Aries (March 21-April 20) Aries,
you get waylaid by a bad cold and you
just can't seem to bounce back quickly.
There's no quick-fix to this one. Rest,
rest and more rest is all you can do.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) Don't
put off your responsibilities any longer,
Thurus. The longer you wait, the more
things will add up on your plate. If you
are feeling the pressure, ask for help.
'Gemini (May 22-June 21) Gemini,
if you've been feeling like things are
just not going your way for some time,
everything is about to change for the
better. Pisces will be the catalyst.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) Cancer,
there's a remote chance that you'll
bump into an old friend from school
whom you haven't seen in several years.
Keep your eyes open for the encounter.

- Unfortunately the stars are not shining
down on you this week, Leo. But that
doesn't mean you can't be the master of
your own fortune. Stay positive.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) Virgo,
you're a pro at thinking you can handle

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -There's

Libra. You exude a certain personality
that can throw others,' but deep down
you're a completely different person.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Scorpio,
having a few friends in your corner
won't help against a big-wig at work.
Just calmly state your case and you will
find it's better received.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -Be
thorough and thoughtful before making
a financial decision, Sagittarius. In this
economic climate it is not wise to go
willy-nilly into money ventures.

next few days will make others envious
or look on you with pity.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) -

unfortunately.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -
Happiness and good times are right
around the corner, Pisces. You just have
to make it through one more rough patch
on Tuesday.

Permissive parenting leads to destructive behaviors


Question:'You have been very critical
of behavioral scientists and other writers
who recommend a more permissive
approach to child-rearing. Explain why
this concerns you. Why is it ever wrong
to be kind and merciful to a boy or girl?
SDr. Dobson: The issue is not one of
kthdness and mercy. It is one of loving
aOthority and leadership at home, which
isin the child's best interest. The major-
ity of books and seminars since 1950 on
child raising have effectively stripped
parents of the ability to deal with willful
defiance when it occurs. First, they
haven't admitted that such behavior hap-
pens, and second, they have given par-
efts no tools with which to confront it.
This bad advice has led to a type of
paralysis in dealing with kids. In the
absence of "permission" to step in and
ldad, parents were left with only their
anger and frustration in response to defi-
aRt behavior.
Let me give an example from a par-
enting text entitled "Your Child from
Two to Five," published during the per-
missive 1950s. In it was a bit of charac-
teristic advice from that era, paraphrased
fiom the writings of a Dr. Luther
Woodward, as follows:.
S"What do you do when your pre-
schooler calls you A 'big stinker' or

threatens to flush you
down the toilet? Do
you scold punish -
or sensibly take it in
your stride? Dr.
Woodward recom-
mends a positive pol-
icy of understanding
Focus On as the best and fastest
The Family way to help a child
outgrow this verbal
Dr. James violence. When par-
Dobson ents fully realize that
all little tots feel angry and destructive
at times, they are better able to mini-
mize these outbursts. Once the pre-
schooler gets rid of his hostility, the
desire to destroy is gone and instinctive
feelings of love and affection have a
chance' to sprout and grow. Once the
child is six or seven, parents can rightly
let the child know that he is expected to
be outgrowing sassing his parents."
Having recommended that passive
approach, with which I disagree strong-
ly, Dr. Woodward then told parents to
brace themselves for unjust criticism.
He wrote, "But this policy (of letting
children engage in defiance) takes a
broad perspective and a lot of compo-
sure, especially when friends and rela-
tives voice disapproval and warn that


you are bringing up a brat."
In this case, your friends and relatives
will be right: You will be bringing up a
bratty kid and maybe a houseful of
them! Dr. Woodward's recommendation
encourages parents to stand passively
through the formative years when
respect for authority can so easily be
taught. His philosophy is based on the
simplistic notion that children will
develop sweet and loving attitudes if
adults will permit and encourage their
teniper tantrums during childhood.
According to the optimistic Dr.
Woodward, the tot who has been calling
his mother a "big stinker" for six or
seven years can be expected to trans-
form, like a butterfly emerging from a
cocoon, into a sweet and loving 7-year-
old. That outcome is most improbable.
Dr. Woodward's "policy of understand-
ing" (which means "policy of permis-
siveness") leads directly to adolescent
rebellion in strong-willed children.

Dr. Dobson is founder and Chairman
Emeritus of the nonprofit organization
Focus on the Family, Colorado Springs,
Colo. 80995 (www.family.org). Questions
and answers are excerpted from 'Complete
Marriage and Family Home Reference
Guide' and 'Bringing Up Boys.'
