lifesaving

teachers

SEBRING. Just six
months' ago a Fred Wild
Elementary School employee
saved a child from choking.
Only two months later, a
teacher at Memorial
Elementary School helped a
choking student who was
struggling to get a biscuit,.
down during the morning
breakfast program.
A third incident happened
in March where a Sun 'N
Lake Elementary School
teacher dislodged a piece of
candy from a student's wind-
pipe.
Each year more than 3,000
people die from choking.
according to a press release
from Phil Attinger. public
relations director of the
American Red Cross's Polk
County Chapter.
The Highlands County Red
Cross is presenting the three
teachers with plaques to rec-
ognize them for their actions.
"Often when they do, they
may not think they did any-
thing special," Attinger said.
But to someone suffering
from ... choking, it's no small
matter."
Paraprofessional Beverly
Ruble, who has worked at
FWE for the past three years.
said she was trained b3 the
Red Cross through a program
her employer offered when
she was working in Kansas.
She first saw the choking
student in the crowded lunch
room but wasn't sure if he
was choking.
"I thought he was upset
about something," she said.
"He couldn't talk to me so I
found out he had other prob-
lems."
She gave him a few% back
blows, a common First Aid
technique used on choking
children, which dislodged the
food, Attinger said.
"I was glad I was able to
help him." Ruble said. "He
was upset over the whole
ordeal but they checked him
at the clinic and everything

what officials believe to be
gasoline on at least six doors
and two windows of his
estranged wife's home in
Avon Park early Thursday
'morning.
When a man from inside,
the East Metcalfe Street
home went outside to inves-

he saw Rose, who yelled
obscenities at him and fled

Branson Thayer, 1-year-old son of Reid and Jessica Thayer, is battling two
different medical conditions. One affects just nine other children in the
world and the other has only been diagnosed in 100 people worldwide.


Holmes Avenue brush fire

was caused by lightning


Caused brief call
for evacuations
News-Sun staff reports
LAKE PLACID A brush fire that for
a brief time sparked calls for a voluntary
evacuation of homes and businesses on,
Homes Avenue Thursday afternoon was
caused by lightning.
Melissa Yunas, wildfire mitigation
specialist with Division of Forestry, said
the tree that had been struck and was the
source of the 35.2-acre fire had been
found.
The fire was still being closely moni-
tored Friday afternoon, Yunas said.
"We recently lost two homes in our
district, so we're not taking any chances.


We're being very, very cautious and mak-
ing sure our lines are holding," she said.
The Florida Division of Forestry estab-
lished the initial fire breaks Thursday,
but thick vegetation from downed hurri-
cane debris and freeze damage was
extremely flammable and dry and crews
were having a difficult time with spot-
ting. I
Units and personnel on scene on
Thursday included roughly 50 firefight-
ers, three median dozers, a heavy dozer, a
fixed wing aircraft, a helicopter with
bambi bucket, three fire engines ..and
three overhead engines, all from Division
of Forestry, as well as fise brush trucks,
three tankers, two engines and two over-
head engines from Highlands County
Fire Rescue.

Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK
o look at Branson
Thayer, one would
never suspect he suf-
fers with a number of severe
and extremely rare medical
conditions. He is "Mr.
Personality," armed with
bright blue eyes, a big smile
and enough charm to melt
the hardest of hearts.
Several weeks after Branson's birth on
Oct. 30, 2007, his parents, Reid and
Jessica Thayer of Avon Park, were stunned
as doctors diagnosed the variety of medical
disorders that could affect his growth and
development.
Due to the complexity of Branson's con-
dition, specialists in Florida and Chicago
are ramping up their research in hopes to
discover new methods in treatment that
may help Branson and other children with
similar medical complications.
You would need a medical degree to
fully understand the rarity of Branson's
condition. He is currently one of nine chil-
dren in the world that have been diagnosed
with MPPH Syndrome.
The symptoms of this syndrome most
often include hydrocephalus (excess fluid
around the brain). postaxial polydactyly

Branson's case), highly asymmetric peri-

survives

GM cuts
By SCOTT DRESSEL
scott.dressel@newssun.com
SEBRING The family
of Alan Jay Automotive
Network dealers survived
one round of cuts on
Thursday when Chrysler
released the list of almost
800 dealerships it planned to
close, then had to sweat out
another long day on Friday as
letters from General Motors
were delivered to 1,100 deal-
ers that company planned on
shutting down.
Once again, Alan Jay's
Sebring dealerships .- as
well Plaza Chevrolet in Avon
Park, which the company
manages but does not own -
made the cut.
"We did not get a letter,"
said Don Elwell, AJAN
director of marketing and
public relations, on Saturday.
"All systems are go and we
will continue to operate our
GM dealerships, I guess'until
further notice.
"The best news is that all
the people who work for Alan
Jay continue to work here,"
Elwell said.
Elwell said there were a lot
of phone calls being made
Friday between th'e Alan Jay
dealerships as well as other
dealers in the area looking
for news of the cuts. GM said
it will not release a complete
list to the public, and some
dealers who got the letters
may not announce that they
did for fear othurting sales ip
the time hey' have left to
operate, Elwell said.
Elwell said he didn't know
of any area GM dealers that
got a notice.

Laura's
Look
Laura Ware

Tweet?

Once upon a time, there were
only a few ways to communi-
cate with someone far away.
Youl could write them a letter,
or call them on the phone. You
could also send a telegram, I
guess, but for normal everyday
'stuff a letter or phone call were
your choices.
If you weren't home and had
to make a phone call, you had
to find a pay phone. These
required coins you dropped in
and would remind you when
you needed to add money
before you were unceremoni-
ously cut off.
When I was attending the
University of South Florida and
Don was in med school in
Kansas City, we wrote each
other a lot. I lived in the dorm,
where my floor had two pay
phones for all the girls who
lived on that floor. Many a
Saturday night found me sitting
near those phones, hoping Don
would call, hoping someone
else wouldn't be tying up the
phones so he could get through.
I can't prove it but if the Post
Office and AT&T were in the
black financially from 1981.to
1983, Don and I had 'a lot to do
with it.
Today of course, we have
more ways of communicating
with each other than we can
shake a stick at. Pay phones
still exist, but their usage has
gone down because so many
people have cell phones.
I didn't get a cell phone for a
while, but now not having one
would be a mini-crisis in my
house. It's how I can actually
leave the house and still be
available if my in-laws need
me. Handy little tool there.
We also have e-mail these
days. Messages can be sent to
people practically anywhere
instantly. You don't even have
to be able to spell to do so,
apparently, though I'm not con-
vinced that's a good thing.
I could go on and on about
all the technology but let me
talk about the latest in commu-
nication. That is the phenome--
non called Twitter.
Now, a lot of you probably
.think of birds when I say twit-
ter. That is not what I mean.
Twitter, according to its support
page, "...is a service for
friends, family, and co-workers
to communicate and stay con-
nected through the exchange of
quick, frequent messages."
Twitter messages (called
"tweets") can only consist of
140 characters or less. This
includes spaces, which means
being pithy is necessary. To
give you an idea of how pithy,
the previous two sentences con-
sist of 139 characters. That
makes it a viable tweet, albeit
one that cuts it close.
Who tweets, you might ask?
A lot of people. Some actors
do. Writers (including me) do.
Astronaut Mike Massimino
(Twitter name: "Astro_Mike")
is tweeting from the Space
Shuttle. The News-Sun tweets
(Twitter name:
"TheNewsSun"). Magazines,
businesses, and people who
find it a neat way to stay in
touch with friends and family
tweet.
Of course, not everyone uses
Twitter. Don doesn't have a
clue it exists. Many people find
it a time waster, something that
offers no benefit and is just
another way to hear yourself
talk.
Me? I use it to tell people
when my column is online, my
blog is updated, and I've sold a
story (OK, the last hasn't hap-
pened yet, but someday...). It's
also a way to get news from '
writing buddies and fellow fans
of my favorite television show.


There are some news updates I
subscribe to. It's a way to net-
work with those in the writing
community.
If you are on Twitter and
want to say hi, my Twitter
name is "bookwormlady2"
(someone beat me to it). Give
me a tweet sometime it's not
just for birds anymore.

Regular citizens are resilient
Editor:
I've been writing this letter for over eight
weeks. I learned about three events that occurred
that caught my interest. It struck me that regular
folks, some 250 million of us hard-working
Americans, are quite remarkable, resilient in
spite of the horrendous economic disaster facing
this country.
A manufacturer back east had to close down
his plant, but continued to pay his employees. A
restaurant owner in Missouri had provided free
meals for those left destitute by the economy and
mentoring was highlighted not only in Highlands
County, but also in the Tampa Bay area.
While our corporate leaders continue to disap-
point us, regular ordinary citizens continue to
astound us with their true charity in coming to
the aid of those down-and-out when least expect-
ed complete strangers or next door neighbors.
Good Samaritans from all over coming to the aid
of those in need.
Those three events in late March were timely,
since the month of April was Volunteer
Appreciation Month. Countless organizations
honored their volunteers, including those in
Highlands County. The concept of resiliency
lopms forth because millions of regular American

TODAY'S LETTERS
folks came forth to give back to their communi-
ties and fellow Americans. It was heartwarming
to observe tens of thousands of examples of the
Good Samaritan from sea to shining sea.
Thus, the true character of the United States of
America emerged when each greedy example of
'corporate America was answered with hundreds
of ordinary citizens giving comfort and aid to fel-
low Americans. Highlands County is a cross-sec-
tion of this great land. One does not have to
leave the county or Florida to find such charac-
ter. It is right here in town, on the street where
she/he lives, where she/he works, where she/he is
actually that Good Samaritan. And the remark-
able factor is that she/he is unaware of it,
because it was just the right thing to do, the
Christian thing to do. We call her/him the unsung
hero.
What is even more astounding is that this
resilient character of American people shines
forth in spite of the fact that they are actually
earning less and losing more because of the econ-
omy. The price of everything continues to rise,
pushing more people out of the middle class; yet,
they continue to be first class as Americans.
Where corporate America are takers; we the peo-
ple are givers. We share, both at home and
around the world. On top of this, they also sur-
vive weekly natural disasters!


The Highlands County Board of
Commissioners will honor those unsung heroes
soon, for it is never too late to acknowledge this
profound character trait.

Life of a native son is remembered "


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Edgar
"E.A." DeLaney Jr. passed
away on April 17, 2009.
E.A. was a third generation
Floridian born in Avon Park.
As a boy growing up in the
sparsely populated, pristine
lake region of central
Florida, he swam and fished
in the crystal clear lakes,
abundant with fish and tur-
tles, explored and hunted in
the seemingly endless sub-
tropical wilderness plentiful
with wildlife. Like many
children of that very special
time, he found entertainment
and joy in the endless bounty
and miracle of nature. He
raised butterflies, moths, all
kinds of birds, rabbits, and
fishes. On hot summer days
he would play in the blue
waters of Lake Lotela or
Lake Tulane, or just lie on his
back and watch buzzards sail
the air currents high among
fluffy clouds against azure
Florida skies.
In the first half of the last
century a crate mill operated
south of Avon Park. The mill
manufactured wooden boxes
for shipping produce and was
the largest local industry in
the area. E.A.'s father, known
for decades as simply
"Mayor," managed the mill.


As a "crate mill kid" E.A.
recalled numerous tales and
wrote several nostalgic and
humorous stories about his
experiences. Many of his sto-
ries involved the Crate Mill
grade school he attended.
Later he attended high school
in Avon Park, but his interest
still focused mainly on find-
ing ways to escape to the out-
side and study nature. Even
so, E.A. obtained ,an excel-
lent education, excelling in
handwriting and reading. A
few years later these skills
would serve him well as the
shadows of war descended
upon the nation.
World War II brought sud-
den changes to every commu-
nity, large and small. E.A.
enlisted in the Army Air Corp
and flew in a B-17, a large
bomber called a "flying
fortress." As tech sergeant he
was a radio operator and side
gunner. He was among the
less than one percent of B-17
flyers to survive the initial
requirement mandated by the
8th Air Force Command of
having to complete a mini-
mum of 25 missions. His
plane was included in the
famous "Black Thursday"
raid, a bold mission to bomb
Schweinfurt, a large city and,
military manufacturing cen-


ter deep in Nazi Germany.
The mission involved a huge
number of flying fortresses
and, as with most of these
missions, there were very
heavy casualties. During that
early phase of the war in
Europe, B-17s flew daylight
raids in formation, without
any escort fighter planes for
protection.
It was presumed that if the
bombers flew in formation,
they would be like "fortress-
es" and not be so vulnerable
to the attacks of enemy fight-
er planes. But this was not
the case. It was a miracle
anyone survived those deadly
missions. Although there
were many close calls, and
although he lost many friends
in combat, E.A.'s worst
injury during the war was a
broken leg that happened as
he tried to kick a Stuck bomb
out of the bomb bqy.
Reflecting on those des-
perate times, it seems almost
inconceivable that a young
man who grew up in a small,
rural Florida town, still a
mere boy, would leave home
to fight a war on another con-
tinent, survive and return
home to help build the great-
est nation on Earth, raise a
family, and live 87 years,
'well into the 21st century. In

those days, Avon Park was a
very small town, but with a
vibrant and bustling down-
town community. Everyone
who wanted a job had one,
and life was relaxed, slow-
paced and happy, and the
future seemed bright. The
natural environment was
clean and fresh, and the sub-
tropical Florida wilderness
astonishingly beautiful -and
exceedingly abundant with
wildlife, full of potential for
recreation and the possibility
for adventure.
E.A. made the most of his
travels during the war. He
developed many new skills
and even learned Chinese
writing and calligraphy. After
the war, he returned home
where he fell in love with and
married Robbie. She had a
son Herbert Bryant, and later
gave E.A. two sons Del and
Kris.
E.A. worked for Bums &
Rowe Engineering, helping
to construct the Florida
Power's first generating plant
in Avon Park, located on the
west shore of Lake Lotela.
When the company complet-
ed the project and left Avon
Park, he decided to stay and
work at the new facility. It
was a good job and a conven-
ient one. E.A. continued
employment with the compa-
ny, retiring after 30 years.
Between working at the
power plant, and while rais-
ing a family and taking care
of his home, E.A. managed to
satisfy his endless curiosity
and creativity through
numerous hobbies. He was an
artist and poet, and he regu-
larly painted using the medi-
ums of watercolor, charcoal,
oil, and acrylics. He raised
tropical fish, quickly becom-
ing an expert, then parakeets,
then fancy breed rabbits, then
pigeons, then quail, and so
on. He had always keep a
vegetable garden, and he

excelled in growing many
different types of ornamental
flowers, such as prize
dahlias, Bells of Ireland,
roses, African violets, and
others. But after he was given
his first tropical orchid plant,
growing orchids quickly
became a life-long passion.
As with his other interests,
he ultimately became an
authority on the culture of all
types of orchids, from all
around the world. He mas-
tered the highly scientific,
difficult, and time-consum-
ing process of raising orchids
from seed, which very few
individuals had the expertise
to do at the time. His desire
to find, new and exciting
plant species led him on
expeditions to the jungles of
Mexico, Central America,
and South America to collect
wild orchids and other tropi-
cal plants. He later wrote sto-
ries about those exotic and
adventurous experiences.
During his lifetime he gave
away thousands of cut-flow-
ers; and hundreds of orchids
and other plants.
"The Magical Hammock"
was E.A.'s -first published


book, and a recognized
Florida masterpiece. He also
wrote a number of smaller
articles, short stories, and
several larger works, all
awaiting publication. He was
a much sought-after public
speaker at garden clubs and
historical societies, where he
shared his many beautiful
and fanciful stories, wide-
ranging knowledge of plants,
and treasured life experi-
ences. E.A. recently served
as chaplain for the Founders
Garden Club.
A private family memorial
service was held at sunset
among the gardens and ter-
races, which he designed and
built on his "little hill" over-
looking Lake Verona and
lovely Avon Park. The Rev.
Mike Graham of Wauchula
presiding, giving tribute and
honor to a beautiful person
who had enjoyed a rich, full
and long life, and who was a
most wonderful husband and
father.
The family appreciates and
thanks each person who
called, sent cards, flowers or
food, or otherwise expressed
condolences.

Sisters arrested for

hitting; kicking

pregnant woman


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID A
pair of sisters were taken in
on warrants late Tuesday
for allegedly starting a
fight with a pregnant
woman.
Andrea Wilson, 20 of
Lake Placid, was arrested
on April 30 for her role in a
Highway Park brawl, but
new information was dis-
covered about another fight
she was in on the same day,
this. time with the pregnant
woman.
According to reports, the
victim was walking on
Williams Street when
"Wilson walked up to (the
victim) and began punch-
ing her in the face."
A woman walking with
the victim reportedly yelled
for Wilson to' stop because
the victim was pregnant,
but Wilson continued.
Wilson's sister, Felicia
Wilson, 18 .of Lake Placid,
allegedly joined in hitting
the pregnant victim, and
also kicked her in the stom-
ach.
The Wilson sisters were
picked up on warrants the
evening of May 12 and
charged with aggravated
battery on a pregnant
woman, a second degree
felony, for the alleged April
30 attack.
For Andrea Wilson's
. most recent charges, she


was released on $15,000
bond on May 13 while her
sister, was released on
$10,000 bond, also on May
13.
During the separate April
30 fight Andrea Wilson
allegedly hit a woman from
behind who was trying to
break up a fight between
two other women.
When questioned, Wilson
told deputies with the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office that "she knew noth-
ing about a fight."
The report stated that she
kept her eyes fixated on the
victim's home while she
was being questioned and
wouldn't look at the deputy
who was talking to her.
When HCSO deputy
Yancy Plair told Wilson she
was under arrest, she
allegedly started walking
away.
When he' grabbed Plair to
take her into custody, she
"tried to snatch her arm
away, yelling 'do not grab
me,'" Plair wrote in the
report.
After her arrest while she
was in the back set of the
patrol car, Wilson allegedly
kicked the deputy's leg and
right arm.
As a result of that case,
she was charged with bat-
tery, battery on a law
enforcement officer and
resisting arrest with vio-
lence.

WITH TUFFLEY
'Christopher Tuffley

hey were waiting
gleefully, the wait-
resses at the
Lakeview
Restaurant on the corner of
Lakeview Drive and
Kenilworth Boulevard.
The idea of an outsider,
particularly a reporter, wash-
ing dishes delighted them no
end. They couldn't stop.
laughing, although one
immediately said I should
wait until Mother's Day,
"then you'll know what a
rush is really all about."
Thank you very much I
:was sure after church on a
Sunday would be more than
enough of a challenge.
Here's the thing about
restaurants, they divide neat-
ly into two sections: The
dinning room and the
kitchen.
Dinning rooms are typi-
cally designed to provide
maximum ambiance so cus-
tomers can relax and savor
good food.
Generally speaking the
noises are subdued, with
conversational voices blend-
ing into a pleasant, almost
musical, background sound
that's punctuated by the
clink of silver on china, the
sharp rattle of ice, and small
bursts of laughter.
In the best of restaurants
(not speaking here of price
or swanky chef, but places,
- where customers are impor-
tant and there's pride in the
cooking) servers move with
a 'kind of grace and coordi-
nation, which hides the
urgency of getting the right,
plate to the right table while
everything is still hot.
What the. customer sees is
a civilized calm where he or
she is the center of attention.
The kitchen, on the other
hand. is a-steamy hot place
filled the sounds of sizzling
meat, clashing pots and pans.
and tersely shouted direc-
tions. It is all about work.
Most people have no idea
how much physical effort
goes into creating a meal.
Maybe that's because the
perfect plate presentation is
such a peaceful combination
engaging all the senses -
the isual as important as the
aroma and the taste.
Sadly. in this romance of

Claudia de Galvan rinses dishes before sending them
through the dishwasher. She works the morning shift seven
days a week washing dishes, mopping floors and cleaning
the bathrooms. Her son Octavio Galvan takes over for the

Sebring Middle School, works Sundays bussing tables.


eating almost everyofie over-
looks the crucial worker in
any kitchen.
Oh,sure, the chef and the
server are essential in creat-
ing the total experience, but
it is the plate, glass and
spoon that are the foundation
for everything else.
If you have ever been
handed a coffee cup with lip-
stick on the rim and it's
not your color or picked
up a fork with dried egg
stuck on it, you know exact-
ly what I mean.
Nothing destroys perfec-
tion quicker than yuck.
Yet washing dishes is the,
least appreciated job in a
restaurant, despite the fact
that a person can get. sick if
it isn't done properly, or the
dinning room slow to a stop
when supplies run out.
Part of the problem is that
washing dishes is done out
of sight and mind, usually
tucked into a back corner'
;well out of the way.
Then, of course, there is
very little glamor.
Make that no glamor at
all. .
Washing dishes is hard,
unending physical labor. The
pace is exhausting rinse,
wash, sanitize, store, then do
it again, and again.
The piles of plates are
heavy. The sinks are set low,
with storage shelves mount-
ed high on the wall. There is
constant bending and lifting:
constant scouring and scrub-
bing.
Did I mention dishwasher
hands? Always wet, by the
end of a shift fingertips are
so deeply wrinkled you think
only botox will bring them
back.
Then there are the bus
bins where grease, or dis-
gusting bits of coffee soaked


toast, or spoonfuls of pud-
ding float in brown-colored
liquid.

Sebring Lowe's helps make


MDA history in Shamrock drive:


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Defying typical nonprofit
fundraising across the United States this
year, Lowe's is at the top of a long, list of
retail and restaurant partners to report a,
record-breaking $18 million in Shamrocks
Against Dystrophy sales.
At the conclusion of the 26th annual
Muscular Dystroph) Association (MDA)
Shamrocks Against Dystrophy campaign,
Lowe's reported $4.3 million in sales, near-
ly doubling the previous record of $2.3 mil-
lion raised by one retail grocery two years
ago. The $1 and $5 Shamrocks donations
have now raised more than $200 million for
Jerry's Kids.
Generous customers of the more than
1,600 participating :Lowe's locations
showed their commitmirent to the Shamrocks
Against Dystrophy campaign through dona-
tions starting at $1., Several partners,
including Lowe's. extended the program
beyond the original March 17 deadline due
to its overwhelming success and the greater
need in tough times that has left nonprofits
struggling to raise funds. Although a nation-
w\ide effort, all money raised stays in local
communities and provides hope to families
living with muscular dystrophy and related


diseases.
"We want to thank- our loyal customers
for their tremendous, support and ar
extremely proud of our Lowe's team that
got behind this effort 100-percent," said
Raymond Smith, store manager of the
Lowe's of Sebring. "This is the second year
we've been involved with.the Shamrocks
Against Dystrophy program as a company
and we've proven that against all odds,
great teamwork and tremendous community
involvement lead to success."
"We're grateful to our partners for reach.
ing out to their customers, for even a small
donation," MDA President and CEO Gerald
C. Weinberg 'said. "The overwhelming gen-
erosity of the local Sebring community
demonstrates that there is so much good in
the world. We can't thank everyone
enough."
Through Shamrocks Against Dystrophy"
$1 and $5 donations help fund research for
treatments and cures, support group sest
sions, clinic fees, MDA summer camps
mobility and communication devices, and
much more,

Claudia de Galvan's hands move so quickly sorting cutlery
they are almost a blur, seeming still only when caught in a
photographer's flash. Washing dishes never ends while a
restaurant is open and serving customers. By the time
Galvan gets caught up with place settings,, there are the
pots and pans to scrub and scour; by the time they are
done, there's another pile of plates, cups and glasses to do.

to keep dishes clean

to deal with than all of the
above. From the moment I
was led to the sinks,
already piled high with the
morning's pots and pans, I
was in a race with Claudia
de Galvan.
. This tiny lady, I don't
think she clears 5 feet, is a
powerhouse of energy --
Jhe kind of person who just
Can't stand still.
Here she had a chance to
'tand back and relax a lit-
tle, with my extra set of
hands in the suds. Instead,
I soon saw we were going
to be in a competition. At
one point we were almost
wrestling dirty pots from
one another.
' For every pot I attacked,
she completed two. When
it came to putting away
clean plates, she picked up
whole piles, of them, hoist-
ing them well over her
head.
* The first time I went to
lift up a stack they were so
heavy I had to stop and do
it in two trips instead..
Her hands flew over the
rack of silverwear, sorting


the knives, forks and
spoons quicker than I
could distinguish the dif-
ference between them.
In no time my back
ached from bending over
the sink, and when I got
home I had to take
ibuprophen because my
wrist and shoulder
throbbed from all the
scrubbing.
It took several hours for
my finger tips, to return to
normal and they hurt the
worst of all. It felt like my
skin was going to split.
How this amazing
woman does it, I haven't a
clue. She works a seven
day week six hours
Monday through Friday
and eight on Saturday and
Sunday.
Then she mops the floor
and cleans the bathrooms.
Me? I lasted two and a
half hours.
And at home, yester-
day's dishes are still in the
sink.

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

It's clear

which way

this wind

is blowing
As we recently learned
that the steroid era in Major
League Baseball isn't yet a
thing of the past, but contin-
uing, the dark Cloud of sus-
picion seems to be expand-
ing or is it really?
Perusing the newspapers
back home, I read in the
Tribune about how the Cubs
were coming to the defense
of shortstop Ryan Theriot for
supposed suspicion of him
being a part of said era.
since the li'l guy had hit five
home runs since May 1, after
having none in April and one
all of last season his first
full year as a big leaguer.
I checked the source of
that suspicion, and it came
from the other Chicago
newspaper, the Sun Times,
and columnist Rick Telander.
Oh, the fan reaction in the
comments after that column
by Telander.
'How dare you accuse
him.'
'There's no way he could
be taking them.'
Cub players themselves
are saying it's a shame that

Evidence would seem to

Spring brings


- new hope for


Green Dragons


News-Sun. p.hOos.by DAN HOEHNE
Anthony Gonzalez battles for a few more yards with Harrison Hyre, #24, and Caleb
Jones, #20, vie to bring him down. Below: Jones returns the favor when Gonzalez tried
to tackle him, giving a tough straight-arm to keep him at bay.


By DAN HOEHNE

LAKE PLACID It may
seem the typical adage, new
hopes blossoming with the
advent of spring, but down at
Roger Scarborough
Memorial Stadium Friday,
night, one only had to look at
the sidelines to notice a
change in the Green Dragon
Football program.
"We have great numbers
that we haven't had here,
maybe ever" second-year
head coach Jason Holden
said. "We're at 59 total, 37
varsity players, so. that's as
high as it's ever been."
This was evident in seeing
the full squads on the field,
with a full compliment of
padded players taking up
each sideline
Green as the team
20 split up and
squared off in
White the annual
Green-and-
1 4 White game.
1I "It's an
exciting time
in the school and in the com-
munity," said Holden, who's
taking part in his first spring
season -after having had to
take over just three weeks
prior to last year's fall sea-
son. "It's great to be able to
be out here and see what we
have and work with them."
And the game itself didn't
lack for excitement either. as,
though the execution wasn't
always spot on, the hitting
was in mid-season form.
The Green team took con-
trol early with a bruising run-
ning game that saw Anthony
Gonzalez break out for a long
run before rumbling in from
five yards out for a 6-0 lead
late in the opening quarter.
Midway through the sec-
ond period, Navahri Holden
capped off a sustained drive
with a four-yard plunge that

spring practice season with

turnout in aspiring players.
made it 13-0 after Stephen
Guelff split the uprights with
the extra point.
The opening half ended in
exciting -fashion as Kirk
Veley connected with Andre
Wilson on a 14-yard touch-
down pass as :tie `halftime
buzzer sounded for a 20-0
Green team lead.
"Kirk really has good lead-
ership qualities about him,"
Holden said. "The guys real-
ly believe in him and that's
what you need t,o have in
your quarterback."
While it seemed a route
was on; the excitement ratch-
eted up in the second half as
the White Dragons got onto
the scoreboard just three
minutes into the third quarter
on a 25-yard; Caleb Jones
sprint into the end zone.
Testing out the strong right
leg of Guelff, the Green
Dragons tried to extend the
lead by attempting a 52-yard

5 YEARS AGO
May 18, 2004: The Sebring Blue Streak nine saw their chance to reach the state final four haltedas
three errors lead to two Palm Beach Central runs, and a missed squeeze bunt kept an additional run off
the scoreboard in the 3-2 loss to the Broncos in the Class 4A-Region 4 championship game in Wellington.
"We're all human," head coach Hoppy Rewis said. "We're not going to play perfect every game."The loss
prevented the team from reaching the state semifinals for the first time since 1966 a streak Sebring
would halt two years later.
15 YEARS AGO
May 17, 1994: Avon Park's Rocky Cousins was named to the East squad to compete in the Florida
Athletic Coaches Association High School All-Star Series at Firemen's Field. It was also announced that
the guest speaker for the event banquet would be Hall of Famer Tony Perez (elected in 2000). Pretty
impressive, but quite fitting given that the FACA has seen such names as Wade Boggs, Gary Sheffield,
Dwight Gooden and Tom Gordon among its' past participants.

Choosing the right plants for dry conditions "fA


Drought conditions being what they
are, we may be challenged with dry
areas in our lawns and gardens.
Hopefully, all of us are conscientious
about water restrictions and are doing
our part to conserve. Instead of strug-.
gling with vegetation that seems to
constantly wilt and need ,more water,
consider plants that are adapted to cope
with less water.
Even in regions where-rainfall nor-
mally is abundant, plants can suffer,.
from lack of moisture. When root
growth is limited by concrete or
asphalt, or when plants are grown in
containers or in excessively well-'
drained sandy soil, moisture stress can
be a constant problem.
In some cases, the soil may be
improved by adding organic matter.
such as peat moss or compost that will
help retain moisture. in the soil. Also,
mulching will help by reducing evapo-
ration of water from the soil surface
and keeping weeds in check. However,
if plants seem to constantly dry out in
spite of your best efforts you may
want to consider growing plants that
can withstand dry conditions. Using
drought resistant plants may help
reduce your water bill and the time you
spend working in the garden.
Characteristics of plants that normal-


News From
The
Watershed
C^t-f^ i ?//*/ B


ly are adapted to dry
conditions include
thick fleshy leaves;
very narrow leaves
(such as those of
many evergreen
species); and hairy,
spiny, or waxy leaves.
All of these are adap-
tations that help
reduce the amount of
water lost from the
leaves. Many drought
tolerant plants also


S,--, have very deep root
systems. Plants that originate in dry
environments also will have greater
drought resistance.
Don't worry that your only choice
will be cactus plants. For most land-
scaping situations, many plants are
available that tolerate dry conditions.
Perennial flowering plants that tolerate
dry conditions include numerous herb,
species 'such as lavender, artemisia,
sage, and yarrow. Many varieties of
these plants have attractive, fragrant,
silvery foliage in addition to colorful
flowers that are attractive to humming-
birds and butterflies. Sedum and.
species of coneflower, liatris, and sun-
flowers do well in sunny dry locations.
Colorful annuals, that thrive in sunny


dry conditions include portulaca, a low
growing plant that reseeds itself and
produces masses of flowers in nearly
all colors. Vinca, which has shiny
leaves and flowers of white to pink to
lavender, works well as a border plant
along hot sunny walkways. The bright-
ly colored California poppy also grows
in dry soils.
Many grasses adapted to prairie con-
ditions do well in dry locations and
provide habitat for birds. They serve as
a landscaping focal point and can be
mixed with perennial flowers for con-
trast.
Shrubs that tolerate dry conditions
include many species of junipers, some
species of cotoneaster, pyracantha,
potentilla, and cafagena. Many of these
shrubs have berries that are both attrac-
tive and provide food for wildlife.
A local nursery can recommend
plants for dry sites in your area. There
are many locally adapted native plants
that will withstand dry conditions and
eienhance your landscape for wildlife.

Portulaca plants love the sun, therefore need a sunny posi-
tion to be successful. They also prefer sandy soil. Water
them during dry spells and feed lightly once in a while.

Celebrate the small accomplishments, Libra


Aries (March 21-April 20) Aries,
hold on a little longer and you will get
your just desserts. A surprise bump-in
with a former friend could lead to a
rekindled relationship in the future.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) Taurus,
late at night you think about what you
were put on earth to do. The realization
may be a little startling but it will pro-
vide needed direction this week.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) Gemini,
you 'are the one friends and family
always look to for help. You may find
that you need to bail out someone in
need in the near future. Feel good that
you are trusted.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) When
you feel that all of your strength is gone,
Cancer, a helping hand is extended and
you carry on. On the weekend you will
have a brief respite.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Leo, there is
so much going on this week you don't
know where to begin. Something at
home pops up so that may be the priori-
ty. Thursday is a pivotal day.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) Others
don't approve of your actions, Virgo.


HORSCOPE


But this week you're content to walk to
the beat of a different drummer.
Romance stalls on Tuesday and won't
rebound for a while.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Celebrate
the small accomplishments, Libra. It
may be a while before you get more
recognition. A proposition at work has
you thinking long and hard.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Scorpio,
feeling under the weather can ruin your
mood. But you will bounce back and be
on top of your game sooner than you
think. Work is put on hold for a while.
Sagittarius -(Nov. 23-Dec. 21)
- Sagittarius, family relations are a little '
strained and you don't know what upset
the apple cart. Thinking you are blame-
free could be irresponsible. Get to the
bottom of it.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) -
Capricorn, it's a good week for you' and


you're relaxed and all smiles. Enjoy the
warm spring weather and take a road
trip or another type of vacation.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) -
Aquarius, there's not much you can do
to change others' minds about a situa-
tion. But stick to your guns. Sooner or
later some people may be won over.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -
Frustration leaves you looking for
answers, Pisces. They may be a little
harder to come by unless you look in
many different places.

DeSmets woodwork on

Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Joyce
and Ken DeSmet have been
named Crafters of the Month
for May 2009 by the
Caladium Arts and Crafts
Cooperative. They are among
several husband and wife
teams who produce unique
crafts for sale at the co-op.
Joyce and Ken moved to
Lake Placid in 1994 fropn
from Illinois. While they
lived in Illinois they owned
their own craft store, which
was named "The Wooden
Needle." They also sold
,crafts at craft shows and arts
and crafts festivals in Iowa,
Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and
Missouri.
They continued to sell
their crafts in Florida and in
2001 they joined the.
Caladium Co-op. Joyce
became very active in the Co-
op and served as secretary for
one year and as president for
two years. Joyce and Ken
continued to make wood
crafts and painting during
this time.
In 2006 they became asso-
ciate members of the Co-op
and went into the soy candle
business with sidelines in
glycerin soap and
antiques.They also did cus-

ing with Weis or working on
their own creations with her
help. Different techniques

mentation with a variety of

supply list is also available.

3-July 8. The cost is $85 and
includes a materials fee.

Group Studio at the Hotel

Youth String
Orchestra to debut
May 27 in LP
LAKE PLACID The
Lake Placid Friends of the
Library announce their spon-
sorship of the first perform-
ance of the Highlands


County Youth String
Orchestra at 4:30 p.m.
Wednesday, May 27. The
concert will take place at the
Lake Placid Memorial
Library. Admission is free.
The musical group formed
a few months ago and is the
realization of a dream of its
director and conductor Diane
Osborne, a classically
trained violinist who per-
forms as a soloist and also
teaches. She recently wrote
about the orchestra, "It has
offered student musicians
the chance to improve faster,
be enthusiastic about learn-
ing their instruments, and
perform together."
Osborne has two associ-
ates who are helping her
bring this, her second youth
orchestra, to reality. Peggy
Essex-Klammer is a music
teacher, performer and vio-
list. Debbie Mercer is also a
music teacher and cellist.
Both associates are per-
formers with the Heartland
Symphony. It is a goal all of
the instructors that these stu-
dents will also play in the
Heartland Symphony some-
day.
There are 11 students in
the orchestra at the present
time ranging in age from 9
to 18. Osborne hopes to dou-
ble the group by this time
next year. Eventually, wood-
winds and perhaps brass will
be added.
"In the meantime, I would
like to add a soloist now and
then, accompanied by the
string orchestra, to give seri-


ous student musicians the
opportunity to strive toward
perfection in their solo per-
formance," she said.
Sponsorships from the
community help to defray
costs. Currently, practices
are held at the Lake Placid
Church of the Nazarene.
The concert is free, but
the Friends would appreciate
knowing how many will
attend. Call the library at
699-3705 to reserve a seat.

Paying for



carelessness


W My husband,
H Ken, was sitting on
the sofa waiting for
* me to watch a
* movie with him. I
approached to take
* my usual spot
* alongside him -
* both of us angled
with legs extended
to better see the TV.

alongside him, I came down
purposefully not gently -
expecting a soft landing on
the cushion. Instead, not
realizing his leg was slightly.
bent, I landed on his knee -
hard.
"Oh, I'm going to pay for
this," I said.
Over a month later, I was
still paying. Whether I actu-
ally bruised the muscle or
just strained it through chi-
ropractic and massage thera-
py I've been gradually get-
ting more range of motion
back.
However, my activities
have been curtailed because
at first I tried ignoring the
pain and exercised anyway.
That only delayed healing.
I had to go back to the
beginning: Step one, prayer
- acknowledging that all
healing in whatever form
God chooses has its ori-
gins in him. Step two:
Cooperating with the -
process. So I'm trying not to
aggravate it while taking
every step for healing. '.
I've learned that it is defi-
nitely wiser to "look before I
leap!"
That truth shines on my
spiritual life as well.
Over and over in these


past few months -
and now empha-
sized even in thi,,
injury I am
reminded of two
verses of Scripture
/ in Proverbs 3: 5 &
6 and Matthew
And 6:33, NIV, respec-
ider tively, that can keep
me on track in all of
'erop life's activities,
decisions and my spiritual
journey. Perhaps they will
uplift someone else as well.
"Trust in the Lord with all
your heart and lean not to
your own understanding. In
all your ways acknowledge
him and he will direct your
paths."
"Seek first the kingdom of
God and his righteousness
and all these things shall be
added to you."
First, when I rest in the
Lord acknowledging him
and not trying to figure
things out on my own -
whether decisions I must
make or actions I must take
- I can count on his direc-
tion.
Secondly, when I'm con-
cerned about finances, cloth-
ing, food, shelter or any
other basic need even
desires of my heart God
asks that I put that aside and
first seek him and his king-
dom. That means choosing
paths that I know please him
and trusting in his provision.
How much better it is to
approach life with care
instead of carelessness.
