SPD officer, K-9 injured when patrol car rear-ended
By TREY CHRISTY ,
trey, christy� newssun.com
SEBRING - The Sebring Police Department is down a patrol car after one of its officers was rear-ended while on the job Saturday evening.
Officer Bret Hinkle was in the center lane of U.S. 27 heading north, just south of the Flare Road intersection when he saw "several vehicles and people on the shoulder," an accident report stated. He reportedly slowed down and activated his lights to investigate.
When he slowed down in order to change lanes, a 1997 Chevrolet Van driven by Steven Stapp, 56 of Winter Park, reportedly rear-ended Hinkle's patrol car.
As a result of the crash, "Hinkle's head struck the metal cage separating the front seat from the back seat causing three separate lacerations to the back of his head," the report stated.
Hinkle's K-9 partner Fea was in the car with him at the time.
"They are both recovering from a lot of soreness and minor injuries," said Commander Steve Carr of the SPD. "They are very fortunate."
Hinkle's injury required six staples, the report stated.
He was transported to Florida Hospital for treatment and was later released. Carr believes he will be able to return to work some time this week.
Fea, a flat coat retriever, has been in service for 10 years. She is expected to return to duty, but the SPD is planning to retiring her soon, Carr said.
She is the SPD's only K-9 but will be replaced upon retirement thanks to the community raising funds to purchase another dog.
The patrol car was deemed a total loss, with extensive damage done to the rear end including a bent frame, but it shouldn't affect the day-to-day operations of the SPD.
"We always carry a couple spares so we will rotate one into our rotation," Carr said.
Stapp was cited for careless driving.

A Grave Situation � A Three-Part Mystery Story
True story
may never be known
Clues are tantalizing, but there s no' way to know ifEdgardo Sosa Was a collector or a grave robber
ISlilit
� Editors note: This is a mystery story involving precious artifacts stolen from ancient graves. In order to tell it fully it had to be divided into three chapters. The first part introduced the major characters and the second chapter involved what was stolen. Today's final chapter sums up the story.
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tujfley@newssun.com AVON PARK � Special agent Tim Carpenter is an art crime expert with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In March of 2009 he was called in by the management of the Crystal Lake Club after a large collection of pre-Columbian pottery was discovered in the home of Edgardo Sosa, a resident who had died in November of 2007 without any heirs.
Normally, Carpenter told the News-Sun in a telephone interview, a case of this kind would be a
criminal matter. Since an international treaty in � 1972 and the Archeological Resources Protection Act of 1979 - which is a U. S. law ' upgraded most
- recently in 1996,
and designed to protect historical artifacts � it is illegal to transport antiquities or own them without proper providence or permits. Even then, museums have found, some artifacts still have to be � returned.
However, Carpenter said, because Sosa was dead the FBI has no interest in determining whether or not Sosa stole the artifacts. Their only issue was returning the pottery to where it belonged.
But the people who knew Sosa, especially Crystal Lake managers
Edgardo Sosa's driver license photo.
News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Archeologist Anne Reynolds goes through pictures she took of Edgardo Sosa's collection of pre-Columbian pottery. The most important aspect of the story she said was that, 'Heather (Barfield) did the right thing to authenticate the pieces before doing anything with them, and then she and the owners of the Crystal Lake Club did the right thing by getting tiiem back where they belonged.' Sosa had shelves full of artifacts in his home (top photo) when he died in 2007.
Heather Barfield and Freida Fitch, as well as Anne Reynolds, a field archeologist who had been asked to examine the collection, can't stop wondering if he actually robbed graves.
The clues are tantalizing, but far from direct proof. ,
For example, many of the artifacts were carefully labeled with place names and dates. And Sosa had a fairly extensive library of professional books about archeolo-
gy in general and various Latin American cultures in particular.
He even had a book listing dig sites with maps.
He also had opportunity, traveling extensively over many years and spending time in areas where burial sites have been found.
Then there is a short story he wrote that Barfield found on his computer.

Commission renews two fuel taxes
Both were to sunset at end of this year
By ED BALDRIDGE
�' . ed.baldridge@newssun.com SEBRING � The Highlands County Commission voted 5-0 on Tuesday to renew the two one-cent-per-gallon fuel taxes oh purchases of gasoline and diesel.
"I don't like taxes, but I don't like the alternative to this, which to raise property taxes," said Commissioner Guy Maxcy.
The two taxes, called the local option 5 cent and the ninth cent, were both scheduled to sunset on Dec. 31 of this year.
Both are charged at the pump on gasoline purchases, but only the ninth cent is charged on diesel fuel.
According to Bernis Gainer, director of the county's Office of Management and Budget, the two fuel taxes put just under $2 million per year into county coffers.
The local option tax raises about $1.4 million per year, while the ninth cent tax raises about $500,000.
Revenue from both taxes must be spent on transportation, according to state law.
"Failure to extend both fuel taxes would cause major reductions in road maintenance throughout the county, or require a significant increase in ad valorem or property tax rates to compensate for the loss while maintaining current service levels," Gainer stated in a memo to the county commission before the vote.
Gainer went on to inform the commissioners that without the tax, the difference would have had to been up in property taxes.
"The (fiscal year) 2008-09 millage equivalent to generate the same revenue ... is 0.32 mil (in property taxes), " Gainer's memo said.
Gainer also called the taxes a "fair way to distribute the cost of road mainte-

AP Meals on Wheels program to start in September
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun .com AVON PARK � Organizers hoping to get rolling on a Meals on Wheels Program in Avon Park met on Monday to elect officers.
"We expect about 40 meals at the start," said Paul Devlin, the newly elected president of the board for the Avon Park Meals on Wheels Program apd an organizer of the group.
Devlin and crew hope to have meal service going by this September.
Devlin said his experience serving on the Avon Park Housing Authority board for seven years has shown him that there is a lot of need in the area.
According to Devlin, the group will have the meals provided by the Palms in Sebring, and will get the meals transported every day to Avon park.
Working closely with the Sebring Meals on Wheels Program for the first year, the group hopes to be self-sufficient by September of 2010.
The Highlands County Coalition for the Homeless Inc. has offered to share office space and Internet access to the new group in the Larsen Center, and Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church will serve as the initial rally point for volunteer drivers.
The only limiting factor to getting a meal will be based on how far the client lives from Avon Park.
According to Devlin in a presentation at the meeting on Monday, the service area will include all of the 33825 ZIP code except for the Bombing Range and a small area around the Avon Park Cut-Off Road

My daughter is in the third grade. She has a 3.84 GPA. How can a child that averages all A's and B's fail the reading on the FCAT? The lowest GPA she had was a 3.33 and that was for the nine weeks period of time that the FCAT was being studied for and taken.
Why does the state put so much emphasis on the FCAT? It should be averaged, or compared with their GPA or something. Now,she has to give up six weeks of her summer, and give up her family vacation to attend a reading remedial class, four hours a day. There should at least be something they can do online with a parent, and then be retested at a facility or something.
My other daughter is in 10th grade and she failed the reading. She is also a 3.84 GPA student. Why?
She has to give up her dual enrollment in Vocational School next year to be able to take the remedial course for reading, And they both read all the time.
The state, schools and teachers make such a big deal out of the FCAT that it freaks the kids out. They make sure they know that if they do not pass it (certain grades) that they will be retained. If you look at the statistics since the FCAT started in 2002, the failing percentage has gone up. Again I ask, why?
I have spoken to many people - parents, teachers, guidance counselors, etc. - and they all agree with my point. A am researching the FCAT and going to start a petition. But for now, my girls' lives will be on hold. It is not fair to the children.
Again, I ask why? And how in the world am I supposed to make sure my daughter is there everyday from 8 a.m. till 12 p.m.? Parents have jobs, and last I looked, I cannot afford to work part time. It does not make any sense to me and maybe you don't care, but I know the parents and teachers and people that don't even have kids in school have expressed their disgust with the FCAT laws.
The letter I received from the school states: If you choose to not have your child attend they will be retained, by law, in third grade for the 2009/2010 school year. There are - some pretty stupid laws out there, but this one takes the cake. Especially with.3.84 GPA.
It does not matter what school district we are .:. what matters is it is happening all over Florida. Do your research, I guarantee you will find kids in your own neighborhood going through the same problem. The problem is not going to correct itself. It takes public awareness.
Thayer fundraiser a huge success
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING � One thing that Highlands County residents can be proud of is the way they look out for their own. Friends, family, acquaintances and complete strangers came together May 29 to support the need i of one little boy, Branson Thayer.
Flashing those big "baby blues" and a "spaghetti sauce grin," Branson greeted his fans as they arrived at the benefit dinner held to raise money for his ongoing medical expenses.
The Life Center at Covenant Presbyterian Church on Sun 'N Lake Boulevard came to life as it filled with patrons from the communities of Avon Park, Sebring, Lake Placid and Wauchula. Apart from Branson, the most notable guest was the recently crowned Miss Florida Teen, Shawnee Lester.
Lester surprised guests as she arrived unexpectedly donned with sash and crown. Applause broke out as she entered the room and made her way to greet the guest of honor. After a number of photographs were taken of Branson and Shawnee, she began to explain what inspired her to attend.
She said that she noticed the flyer with Branson's picture announcing the fundraising event at Above and Beyond Hair Salon in Lake Placid. She was first enchanted by his bright blue eyes, then intrigued as she read about his rare brain disorder called Polymicrogyria.
Shawnee attended Sebring High School as a freshman and is a junior at Clewiston High School. She said she also plans to attend the Poker Run set for later this month in memory of Kaeden Shoi^t, the 22-month-old baby who died when taken off life support after allegedly being beaten by Avon

Coincidently, Lester had recently researched and written a paper in her college biology class on this medical condition. She aspires to become an autopsy technologist one day.
Since pageant winners are expected to make public appearances, Lester quickly decided that Branson's benefit
would be the venue for her debut as Miss Florida Teen.
Another notable guest was Lake Placid Mayor Tom Katsanis. Katsanis, a personal friend of the Thayers, joined the faction from Lake Placid that came to show their support for

N. Carolina murder suspect caught in Sebring
By TREY CHRISTY
1 trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - A North Carolina man wanted for murder was taken into custody over the weekend when the car he was in was pulled over for speeding by a Highlands County Sheriff's Office deputy.
"According to the deputy's report, we stopped a vehicle, the drivers license was suspended so they started identifying people who might be able to take over the vehicle," said � HCSO Maj. Mark Schrader.
The suspect, Demar Bryan, 22, of Fayetteville, N.C., was a passenger. He allegedly gave HCSO Deputy Max Van Dhuynslager a fake name.
"When they ran that they came up with a possible warrant out of Cumberland County, N.C., saying this could possibly be a fraudulently used name and it might be this Bryan," Schrader said.
Bryan is wanted on charges of murder, attempted murder, and assault with a deadly weapon in the March 29 shooting death of Spec. Charles Clements, 27, who was based at Fort Hood, Texas, outside a lounge in Spring Lake, N.C. Arthur Mwebe, 26, a Fort Bragg soldier, was also shot in the leg.
Officials in North Carolina believe Bryan was trying .to flee to Jamaica, according to www.ncwanted.com
"This is another example that law enforcement has no idea who they are going to stop when they make a traffic stop," Schrader said.
The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office have told the HCSO they plan to extradite Bryan to face the charges. He is currently being held on ho bond.

Three arrested for shoplifting, then fleeing from police in AP
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy @newssun .com
AVON PARK - An illegal shopping spree sent two women to the. Highlands County Jail over the weekend and their minor accomplice to the Juvenile Justice Center in Bartow.
The three women were allegedly seen taking $300 worth of merchandise from the Avon Park Beall's Outlet Sunday afternoon. Some of the items were reportedly damaged due to the women's attempts to remove the anti-theft devices.
When confronted outside the store, they "refused to cooperate" and pushed the store's loss prevention officer when she tried to stop them from getting into their car, the arrest report by Avon Park Police Department officer Allison Smith said.
The women dropped some of' the merchandise while fleeing, circled around in the parking lot and tried to get it back, accelerating at the loss prevention officer in an apparent attempt to strike her.
While fleeing the scene, followed by APPD officers, Shantavia Venning, 17, exited the vehicle at the Marble Avenue and U.S. 27 intersection, the report stated.
"The vehicle con-, tinued to flee, leaving the; female in the djtch, unknown if injured," Smith said in the report.
The vehicle continued to flee until it came to a skidding Kateta stop next to an orange James grove off of Marble Avenue. The officer allegedly saw the driver Kateta James, 31, switch seats with the back seat passenger, Ashley James, 18. A 2-year-old child, who
was not in a car seat or wearing a seat belt, was in the car during the pursuit, the arrest report stated.
Venning was later taken into custody.
Ashley James was released Monday on $2,500 bond, charged with theft more than
$300, resisting, property recovery, contributing the" delinquency of a minor and resisting arrest without violence.
Kateta James remained in the Highlands County Jail on $56,000 bond, facing nine total charges: cruelty towards
a child, resisting property recovery, theft more than $300, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill, property damage, fleeing police, battery, contributing to the delinquency qf a minor and resisting arrest without violence.

Editorial & Opinion__
Today's Editorial Libraries about much more than research
www.newssun.com
We couldn't disagree with County Commissioner Jeff Carlson more. At least when it comes to the issue of a public library's role in a community.
He has gone on record saying he believes libraries should be places of researcji. and not centers of entertainment.
We think that is an alarmingly narrow view, one that ignores how important recreational reading is.
Well-researched stories are packed with information, for example, Michael Schaara's novels about the Civil War or Patrick p'Briaii's "Master and. Commander" series; John Grisham's work, while not pretending to be "serious." opens the world of law to the layman while spinning an interesting tale; even the lightest of fiction takes us away from our worries.
Well-written novels bring out the truth of what it means to be human. They show us how individuals interact, go wrong, fail, grow, survive, and solve problems.
In other words, reading for fun is never a waste of time.
In fact, the more we read for pleasure,
the better readers we become, and the better able to understand more difficult work.
Clearly Carlson doesn't think much of leisure reading. We feel sorry for him. It's a shame he doesn't know what he's missing.
Carlson also opposes the use of computers for anything but research. He wants to set policy to curtail their use in public libraries.
Beyond the issues of censorship and free speech, Carlson misses something else important: The cost of buying books, DVDs, software and computers.
To be fair, he recognizes the cost in the county budget � behind all this "libraries should only be for research" nonsense is an effort to save tax dollars � what he doesn't get is that individuals often can't afford to buy these on their own. By pooling resources, however, as through tax dollars, we individuals have access to things we otherwise would not.
The public library is always an oasis. During difficult economic times it's a place where we can go and keep up with the world without having to spend money needed for food, clothing and rent.
We're glad Carlson has the good fortune to be able to afford whatever he wants, we just ask he remember those of us who don't.
In the end, we think it is wrong for one man to impose his prejudices on an entire community. The tax money in question is our money, not Carlson's alone, and it is we who should decide how that money is spent.
Our public libraries are always busy, their staffs constantly working to improve and expand service.
We believe the community would rise to the challenge if the commissioners asked us*to raise matching dollars as a way to save money.
But to rationalize that libraries serve only a very narrow purpose, in order to cut funding, is as short sighted as it gets.
We'd be very happy to see Carlson replaced as "the county commission's representative to the library board � he has too much of an agenda to serve the public well.

Band has support, but not a change in colors
Editor:
I want to let you know that I do totally with all my heart support the band. I do not support the colors. The reasons given to me are unacceptable.
The band was founded in 1926 by Prof. Gustat. In pictures found at the Sebring Historical Society, the band wore white dress pants or skirts and white shirts. In one of the pictures the band has on sailor suits, in another picture they have on army suits. In 1934 the uniforms are blue jackets and white pants. For 74 years that is how it has been. The Sebring High colors are blue and white in all sports.
If the band has to have black uniforms because less dirt shows up, then are we changing baseball and football uniforms because after all they are in the dirt. If we have to change to black pants and shoes because less mistakes show up at a band competition, then are we going to change our sports uniforms so their mistakes don't show up at a game? Rather than trying to fix it or better ourselves.
Another example in an article at the Historical Society: The band had 22 consecutive years of straight ' superior. They were also known as the United States Best Band. If they did that with white pants on, then the band must have been totally awesome. I am extremely proud that I was in the same uniform as them. You have people from years ago recognize the name and uniform because of the history behind it.
I know that the band can be that good. I know they can be superior in white pants. Covering up mistakes does not make you good. I know you want to be proud. I have never said lo "not update the uniform."
1 only said keep the school colors. If you do not want jackets with tails, by all means get a jacket without a tail. The jacket you have picked out with a lightning bolt should be all blue with a white lightning bolt.
You have butt pads to sit on in the
stands, we did not when 1 was in school. It was my responsibility to take care of my uniform. If you ruined a uniform you bought a uniform. I actually had to buy a pair of pants because I ironed a hole in them.
Talk to other band alumini and get their stories. Get some history. My high school years in band we went to the Dolphins game, Bucs game twice, Tampa Bay Bandits game, and played half-time shows. We worked extremly hard and made it to New-Orleans, came home with superior. Kids, I know you can do it.

We need to assist the President in his efforts
Editor:
I was talking to Bill the other day about the state of our economy, the war dragging on and how I felt about our new president. Bill said, "Yes, we are in a mess of trouble on our economy and the people responsible for most of it are not in jail, probably most won't be, but he said many of us add to the problem and never think a thing about it."
I said, "How do we do that?" Well Bill said, "In many ways, we misappropriate money. We throw trash out of our cars and let our children do it too. Someone has to pick it up. These folks must be paid, so must the truck drivers who drive those tons of trash to the dump. We waste water, we waste gas. we fail to recycle and we cheat on oni taxes.
"All these things are forms of theft, so we can't blame it all on the big stealers - there are only a few of them and there are many of us.
"Now about unemployment. You and I have known one another a long time and we both know some people will never work. I assume those are figured into the honest-to-goodness unemployed.
"The war - well, if history is correct, we know those we are fighting have never been really defeated. The British tried and failed (they came closest), the Russians couldn't do it
and so far. we can't either. I think we ought to get out and spend some of that money on those who really need help here.
"The new president is really trying. He has a lot of energy. I hope he doesn't burn out. I like the First Lady. She seems honest and down-to-earth. They both have big tasks and Iwish them well.
"We are old enough to remember the Depression. It's not back yet, but could be just around the corner. Perhaps when we sit with our family and friends to eat or in church, we might pray-. It's not illegal to pray at your table. We need help and I'm sure our new president would not mind a little assistance also. We could pray for those that live around us and throw garbage on our wonderful country. I'm sure they need it.
"Pray for our flag. It has been the symbol of hope and freedom for many, but, now it is burned and trampled in many countries (even those we helped). Let's assist the young president and his wife in their efforts to pick up our flag out of the mud and put it back flying as hope for the oppressed and pride for our nation."
Lee C. Roberts Sebring
A few questions to address
Editor:
I see Sandy Oleeski is still knocking Republicans. This time it's (former vice president Dick) Cheney because (former president George W.) Bush has retired to the sidelines like the gentleman he is.
So, I have some questions for Sandy.
1) If George W. Bush or Dick Cheney had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?
2) If either of them had given Tony Blair a set of inexpensive and useless (to Tony Blair's UK video formatting) DVDs, when Tony Blair had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?
3) If either of them had given the Queen of England an iPod contain-
ing videos of his speeches, would you have approved?
4) If either of them had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?
5) If either of them had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?
6) If Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current on their income taxes, would you have approved?
7) If Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?
8) If Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumu-. late, in one year, would you have approved?
9) If Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?
So, tell me, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive?
Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He did all this in 10 weeks -so you'll have three years, nine-and-a-half months to come up with an answer.
And, finally, do you realize that Obama has spent over $1 million (possibly illegally) to keep people from seeing his real birth certificate? What is on the certificate that he doesn't want anyone to see? He produced a 'Certification of Live Birth' but you and I could get Hawaii to issue one simply because it's obvious we were born alive, at least in my case. If you look at the document you will see no signature, no hospital, no doctor. So tell us Sandy, what's he hiding? Blast Cheney and Bush all you want but they are not hiding anything. Oh, "The One" is apparently using campaign funds to hide the information, which is not allowed under present campaign laws.

Mothers need to protect their children from
sexual predators
In Michigan, the mother of missing 5-year-old Nevaeh Buchanan says person of interest and registered sex offender George Kennedy was like a "father-figure" to her daughter. Mother, Jennifer Buchanan, admits to looking past Kennedy's previous child sexual offense and allowing him to build a relationship with her daughter.
While my sympathies go out to this mother over the disappearance of her daughter, we can all learn a lesson from this mother's mistake. Buchanan minimized this predator's offense and put her daughter directly in harm's way. Allow me for a moment to speak from personal experience and be a voice for survivors and children everywhere.
As a child, my own biological father severely abused me both mentally and physically. I was just 10 years old when his abuse became sexual. After four years of silently dealing with my father's abuse, I finally got the courage to tell my mother. My mother's reaction was a common one: denial. She became a contributor, if not an equal contributor, to my abuse.
In my early 20's, after years of brainwashing, denial, and silent suffering, my brother was able to validate my abuse. As a child, he had suspected my abuse and placed a tape recorder in the bedroom, catching my father's abuse in the act. My brother's tape marked the beginning of a very long and difficult healing process: confronting my father, saying goodbye, forgiving, and eventually having the courage to press charges. Despite all of these revelations, my mother continued to deny and minimize my father's abuse, leaving our relationship behind in order to continue a relationship with him.
Though my situation differs from little Nevaeh Buchanan, the lesson here is the same. As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and a mother of a 3-year-old little girl, I find myself wanting to scream out, "Mothers -Protect your children!" Current statistics indicate that at least 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday. We need to use the National Sex Offender Registry to our advantage and not be in denial about the potential of these predators. Be on the lookout for common signs of sexual abuse in your child:
1. Unusual interest in or avoidance of all things sexual in nature.
2. Aspects of sexual abuse in drawings, games, or fantasies.
3. Sleep problems or nightmares. 1
4. Sudden fear of a person or place where the child was previously comfortable.
5. Depression, withdrawal, eating disorders.
We have come a long way in our country in bringing awareness to childhood sexual abuse, but with an estimated 60 million survivors in our country today, we still have a long way to go. Mothers - be a voice, a protector, and an advocate for your child. If ever you need help with identifying or reporting abuse, please call the National Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-4ACHILD.

Fraud (deliberate deception for gain) is on the rise. Telemarketing fraud is done

Serafino driven to tell stories
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopherduffley� newssun .com
AVON PARK � Sunny Serafino always wanted to write. But a sick husband, widowhood, raising three children as a single parent and a 46-year career as a legal secretary never gave her the time.
Then she remarried and retired. In the last 12 years she has published 10 books � nine novels and a memoir of her parents.
Her most recent work, "Second Chances," has just been released. It. is a sequel to "Echoes," an earlier book.
In "Echoes," Serafino tells the story of a dying woman's last wish � bringing her far-flung family together again. So many readers wanted to know what happened to the family next, Serafino said, that she was forced to continue their story.
"Second Chances" deals with change and how people react.
Main characters include the dying woman's husband, her best friend, and her youngest daughter. All three have to adjust to her loss, but Patty, the daughter, has perhaps the most problems.
"This is a story about old friends, new loves, and a deep-seated trust that holds a family together," she said.
Serafino said she thinks her story through, before she sits at the keyboard, so she has an immediate idea of where she's going.
That doesn't mean, she added, that the characters don't take on a life of their own � she has frequently been surprised by unexpected twists in the tale.
She said she is not a disciplined kind of writer. She doesn't sit down the same time every day, or write a specific number of words each session.
Instead, she writes in her spare time, after waiting until she has something to say. Then she types until she is done. That might mean working all day, several hours, or only 25 minutes. '
"I don't sit there with a blank face," she said. "If I have a blank face, I don't sit."
It typically takes her from six to nine months to get a book finished.
Her drive is her passion to tell stories.
News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Sunny Serafino enjoys rereading her latest novel, the 10th book she's had published. Three of her works have won awards.
While her plots are all different, they always involve courageous women.
Her books are all self-published, primarily because waiting to be discovered by an agent and traditional publisher can take a lifetime and requires as much luck as talent.
She has discovered, however i that self-pub-lishing has a tremendous advantage � she has complete control of her work.
She is very proud of the fact that three of her novels have won literary awards.

All state universities seek max tuition hikes
By BILL KACZOR
Associated Press Writer
TALLAHASSEE � A committee of the Board of Governors, which oversees Florida's public universities, Tuesday recommended all 11 schools should get differential tuition increases of 7 percent � the highest allowed under a new law.
University of Florida president Bernie Machen also defended a provision in the law that lets the schools substitute private money for 30 percent of the differential dollars that's supposed to pay for need-based scholarships. The other 70 percent must be used for undergraduate education.
"This is not subterfuge or an end run," Machen said after one board member suggested that's what it might be. "This is actually an add-on."
The board's Budget, Finance and Operations Committee recommended
approval of 7 percent differential increases sought by each of the universities. That's in addition to an 8 percent statewide increase ordered by the Legislature, for a 15 percent total.
Seven percent would add between $172 and $203 to the annual tuition paid by full-time students depending on the school.
Tuition will increase to $3,070 a year at the University of Florida, University of South Florida, Florida International University and Florida State University and ' to $2,910 at the University of Central' Florida. Those five schools also had differential increases last year under a previous law.
Annual tuition at the other six schools, which received differential authority under the new law, will go to $2,830 including the 8 percent statewide increase in the base tuition.
AP to launch Meals on Wheels program

close to the Polk County Line.
Devlin said he has been talking about the possibility of the program with a group of other community activists for about two years, and now has an operating board and about $1,000 per month to get started.
"The meal costs will be
$4, exactly what we are charged, and the delivery will be by volunteers. Our overhead will be really small, since the office is provided, so we can get this going by September if the rest of the paperwork is finished," Devlin said.
The paperwork Devlin is referring to is the filing for non-profit status with the Internal Revenue Service.
Other member of the board include: Richard Reinhardt, vice-president; John Jeffo, treasurer; Roberta Creed, secretary; and board members at large Forest Hilton, Alvin Conner, Cameron Bernard, Arnold Wilson and Father Nick McLoughlin.

Collection will be returned to South America
Continued from page 1A
The story, called "The Camera Photographic" is set in Guatemala. It concerns a 13-year-old boy whose parents are archeologists excavating a temple site in the jungle. The boy explores the site on his own.
Sosa writes: "The more he looked with his eyes, the more he fantasized with his imagination. He could visualize the coming and going of his ancestors through the streets of the city in a typical day of the Classical period, perhaps 1,500 years ago ... He could see the priests in heavy feather cloaks moving in solemn motion, performing mysterious rites of occult significance, perhaps even where he was standing at that moment!"
As the story continues the boy falls asleep and wakes to find a girl who leads him into the jungle. She takes him to a temple alive with people dressed exactly as he'd imagined. He is taken to a room where the girl takes his camera and rests it in a niche in the wall. At that point he discovers he has somehow traveled through time and is about to be sacrificed to the gods.
He escapes safely, and finds himself hoping that one day an archeologist, excavating a mysterious temple, "full of excitement having penetrated inside, will stop perplexed, full of awe, at the sight of a camera photographic in a hole in the wall!"
That Sosa was alive to history and aware of what he had in his home, there is no doubt. Whether he actually slipped out into the night and dug with his own hands is more of a stretch. But his short story shows an understanding of the emotions involved.
One can argue that his secrecy indicates a guilty conscience, and the fact that he never tried to sell a piece,

While some answers died with Edgardo Sosa, experts brought in by the Federal Bureau of Investigation determined the bulk of his pre-Columbian collection originated in Ecuador and Peru.
Thayer fundraiser a success
Continued from page 2A
Branson and his parents, Reid and Jessica. Pastor Ray Cameron and the congregation of First Presbyterian Church, Reid's family church, brought a busload of friendly faces that gave generously to the cause. Dr. Glenn and Barbara Thayer, paternal grandparents of Branson, beamed as they greeted their Lake Placid friends, thanking them for the outpouring of love bestowed upon their family-Branson's maternal grandparents, Arthur and Rhoda Wolfe, were humbled by the show of support. "Friends of the Thayer's," who planned and
executed the event, are mostly members of Covenant Presbyterian Church, where Arthur, Rhoda, Reid, Jessica and Branson are very active members.
"This family is such a blessing to this church. They serve in so many ways and are selfless when it comes to giving of their time and talent. This is just one small way in which we can help supply a need and show how much we love and appreciate them," said Kerry "Meeker, Friends of the Thayer's committee member.
At the evening's conclusion, approximately 475 spaghetti dinners had been
served to the hungry crowd. Ticket sales and donations far exceeded all expectations. Although the event was planned to be "a blessing for Branson," it also served as a blessing for New Testament Mission, which received approximately 75 excess spaghetti dinners.
"Even though many people worked hard to ensure the success of the event, we give our thanks to God for touching the hearts of those that gave so generously," said Paul McGinness, chief cook and benefit instigator.
"We witnessed a beautiful thing tonight, God's people working together to help a family in need."
even when he could have used the money, meant he didn't want to attract attention to himself.
But this is speculation about someone no longer able to defend himself.
The only fact known for sure is that the artifacts, many of which were taken from graves, ended up in his home. Now it was up to the FBI to see they were returned where they belonged.
As it happens, returning artifacts to the countries of their origins isn't an easy task. This is primarily because the boundaries of ancient civilizations rarely conform to modern borders. Ownership is often difficult to establish.
Another problem that is just as confounding is that artifacts taken out of historical context can be difficult to identify.
This is why the FBI goes through a series of steps in the repatriation process.
The first step is to have experts examine recovered artifacts closely in order to place them. And this is when the last surprise of the story took place. A surprise that turned out to be a little disappointing.
While there were "a dozen museum quality pieces that were truly spectacular," said Carpenter, most were so damaged or commonplace they had little intrinsic value.
In fact, the collection was finally valued at closer to $135,000 instead of millions of dollars � still a large sum of money for a man who was apparently struggling to pay his bills.
The FBI experts determined the pieces came from Ecuador and Peru. They will be returned to those nations in a ceremony to be held later in the summer.
The letdown in value shouldn't take away from the story. For Barfield, Fitch and Reynolds, it was a highlight in their lives.
After all, someone really shivered with the secret thrill of discovery. Someone really dug into graves and disturbed bodies at rest. Someone really snuck the artifacts across borders and by customs agents. And those artifacts ended up in a home in Avon Park.
Finally, the story has an ironic ending � a man who hoarded items stolen from graves was unable to afford a grave of his own.

Local chiropractor observes National Headache Awareness Week
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - In recognition of National Headache Awareness Week, June 7-13, Affinity Health Professionals is hosting a special community workshop on The Natural Solutions to. Headaches. This workshop is open to the public at no charge and will be conducted at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
Many people rely on pain medications, prescription and non-prescription, to help lessen the symptoms related to headaches. "Pain medications have side effects that become more serious the longer you take them. The No. 1 cause of acute liver failure in the United States is Tylenol or acetaminophen. It's better to get the cause of the problem corrected rather than just treating the symptoms," said Dr. John Pepper, clinic director at Affinity Health Professionals
According to the National Headache Foundation Web site, at http://w w w .headaches .org, primary or benign headaches are not brought on by an organic underlying condition.
Each year, 90 percent of
all men and 95 percent of all women have at least one headache. Despite many people having frequent and sometimes severe headaches that affect their family, social and work life, most do not actively seek relief from their condition. Experts say the complacency is puzzling because relief is available, but begins with an understanding that headaches are very personal. Four simple strategies can get sufferers on the right course to relief:
- Realize that headaches matter, and take your headaches seriously;
- Learn all you can - be a student of your own headaches;
- Pay more attention to your personal headache patterns - track your headaches, and try to find clues to triggers and solutions;
- Take control and get the help and care you deserve: Many resources are available.
However, common headaches are legitimate biological disorders, not psychological conditions. Among the categories of headaches are tension,
migraine, cluster and organically caused ones. For more specific information about each, and how to treat them, visit the Foundation's Web site".
About 78 percent of adults experience a tension or stress headache at some point in their lives. There appears to be a slightly higher prevalence of this type of headache among women and more women than men seek treatment.
According to the site, more than just a "bad headache," migraine pain and associated symptoms affect 29.5 million Americans, equivalent to 13 percent of the population and one in every four U.S. households has a migraine sufferer.
There are an estimated one million cluster headache sufferers in the United States, the site reports, with about 90 percent of the sufferers being male.
An organically caused headache is not a disease itself; rather it is a symptom of another disease or disorder.

STATE OF FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT REVISION
The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to issue a permit revision for Butler Oaks Farm Dairy, to be issued to Butler Oaks, Farm, Inc. The proposed permit revision approves the new Comprehensive Nutrient Management Plan (CNMP), and authorizes a herd increase of 1,01.0 milk cows at the Butler Oaks Farm Dairy, located at 172 Shady Oaks Lane, Lorida, Florida 33857.
The intent to issue and application file are available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the FDEP Southeast District Office located at 400 N. Congress Ave. Suite 200, West Palm Beach, FL33401.
The Department will issue the permit with the attached conditions unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed un--der Sections 120.569 and 120.57; Florida Statutes, within fourteen days of receipt of notice. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Departments proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120,569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000
Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request enlargement of the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the end of the time period for filing a petition for an administrative hearing.
Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, any person who has asked the Department for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request for enlargement of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that persons right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on whish the Departments action is based must contain the following information:
(a) The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioners representative, if any; the Department permit identification number and the county in which the subject matter or activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the Department action;
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's substantial interests are affected by the Department action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts that the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Department action;
(f) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as the rules and statutes which entitle the petitioner to relief; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action that the petitioner wants the Department to take.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Departments final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.
Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, is not available for this proceeding.

64 West Collision Repair has
taken a proactive stand in protecting the environment by going "green" with its paint finishing system. The collision center recently switched to a low-VOC PPG. waterborne basecoat from a conventional solvent-based system.
Waterborne basecoat is the latest coatings technology that's typically used to create the original color on today's vehicles. According to PPG, the introduction of its waterborne color toners for use in collision centers provides the enhanced ability to match a vehicle's original finish.
"This is a major technological advancement with no downside," says 64 West Collision Repair. "Not only is the paint better ecologically, it gives better color matches and it's faster to complete a repair when | compared to the system we were using."
Only repair center in Highlands & Hardee Counties using environmentally friendly PPG waterborne paint.

Goin' Postal, Alan Jay slog way to Dixie draw
By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.lwehne@newssiin.com SEBRING - A week nearly washed away by daily doses of rain and lightning culminated in familiar fashion -with a nice ending as a result.
Lightning delayed the start of Sunday afternoon's penultimate match-up between Dixie Boys power Alan Jay and up-and-coming Goin' Postal, as startling flashes overhead kept everyone under cover.
A light, but steady, rain wasn't making it. look too likely that this tournament, shrunken from a nine-team county affair to a four-team city event, would ever get completed.
But the determined Dixie's took to the field as the lightning, if not the rain, subsided.
"It rained Postal
never really too hard," Goin' head coach Cesar Martinez said. "But it was steady and by the end of the first inning, everyone was soaked. We played through it, but by the fifth inning the field was just unplayable and keeping the kids from getting hurt made us decide to end
End it with an 8-8 tie and a shared championship for the two waterlogged foes.
And while Alan Jay had been the league leader most of the season, and had slugged it's way through this abbreviated tournament, Goin' Postal came on late to show it belonged.
"We didn't help ourselves Friday," Martinez said of an opening day loss to the
Lions. "But we always said we wanted to be playing our be'st ball at the end. The kids stuck around and got their momentum going Friday night."
That was a win over Publix in the first elimination game, and then came another elimination Saturday morning with a bounce-back win over the Lions.
That set up Saturday afternoon's contest with Alan Jay - the irresistible force meeting up with the immovable object.
And what a battle that was, Alan Jay taking an
Goin* Postal earlv lead' onlv t0 see the Postal boys come
back and tie it at 6-6 to push it into extra innings.
A scoreless top of the eighth, though, gave Alan Jay a chance as Gus Garcia reached and stole second with one out in the bottom of the frame.
A screaming liner to deep center, off the bat of C.J. Payne, looked like it might spell the end of Goin' Postal's recent rally, but Garrett Martinez tracked the ball and made a nice cross-body, over-the-shoulder catch.
Thinking the ball was earth bound, Garcia was rounding third and headed home when the catch was made giving Martinez plenty of time to get the ball in for the double play.
The momentum of the inning-ender carried over as the top of the ninth was the decisive frame.

And Another Thing...
Dan Hoehne
Magic bus meets manic chipmunk
The Magic carpet ride to an NBA Championship may be running out of gas, or whatever fuel a flying carpet runs on.
A very good Los Angeles Laker team is proving a tougher match-up than any team they faced in the Eastern Conference side of the playoff bracket.
Not to mention they're lead by, arguably, the best player - and not as arguably, the best finisher - in the game.
But could someone tell me what that new look is that Kobe has come up with?
I understand, though think it kind of silly, that he's adopted this weird sort of scowl to show his intensity, to show how eager and determined he is to win this championship.
After all, if he's going to even begin to justify his greatness up toward the Michael Jordan status he has always craved, he knows he needs to win one without the assistance of one Mr. Shaquille O'Neal.
Some might say he's halfway there, that he needs maybe three championships without Shaq for that justification - saying that Jordan didn't win any without Scottie Pippen.
Then again, in Kobe's first three titles, he was the Scottie Pippen, not the Michael Jordan of the equation.
But in his effort to put a face on his desire, he's come up with what looks more like a maniacal chipmunk.
Which might carry him over the Magic, but the thing is, Jordan never had to come up with a face.

With one out, Brad Doty drew a walk, and Martinez singled.
On the throw to try to get Doty at third, Martinez kept going, toward second, drawing a throw that allowed Doty to score the go-ahead run.
Josh Gomez then ripped an RBI single before Dane Maddox drew a walk.
Chris Hensley, L.C. Smith and Bruce Kimball then each followed with RBIs and as the dust cleared, Goin' Postal had an 11-6 lead that would hold up for the win.
"We've had trouble defensively all year," Martinez said Saturday. "And it hurt us

As for the early-ending finale Sunday, "(Alan Jay head coach) Kelly (Payne) has a real good team. I've seen his kids play the last few years and knew they were a tough team," Martinez said. "We've had a bunch of new kids and just kept throwing them out there. We caught a little fire and even with the conditions, we had two good teams playing some decent baseball."

> NASCAR drivers were selling the new "double-file restart" rule as; "listening to the fans." What they were actually listening to �'Vras the wh&tle of the wind
through empty seats.
> It was a mistake to market the new rule by focusing on the fans. How about the sagging economy? "Brother, can you spare a lap?" The "lucky dog" is now a "lucky kennel.".
> We know it's hard, Dale Earnhardt Jr. fans, but try to be patient. It's too early to pass judgment on the new crew chief. Give him a month. At least.
> Kyle Busch may have thought it cool to destroy the handmade guitar he got for winning the Nashville race in the.Mationwide ; Series, but it didn't go over well . in Music City USA. Busch's gimmick was to give everyone on the team "a piece of the trophy," b'ut the predominant impression seemed to be one of disrespect for artist Sam Bass and guitar maker Gibson.
> The double-file restarts went off withou^incident at Pocono. In fact, they had little to do with the race's outcome. There may be more tweaking required, though, before they try to make that work on a short track.
> The Pocono 500 played out in front of a decent crowd. The attendance listed on the race report was probably padded by 30,000 or so, though. The Pocono grandstands aren't spacious, comparatively speaking, as evidenced by the fact that their capacity is unlisted in the NASCAR media guide.
> Just as a general notion, how can the seating capacity be * "N/A," for not available? Next time someone needs to count
the rows and seats, just for the record.

Sprint Cup
� Race: LifeLock 400 �Where: Michigan International Speedway, Brooklyn (2.0 mi.), 200 laps/400 miles,

� Race record: Dale Jarrett, Fo'rd, 173.997 mph, June 13,1999.
� Last week: The Pocono 500 was decided by neither double-file restarts, rain nor gloom of night, Tony Stewart won it because he had enough fuel to make it to the end, and Carl Edwards finished second because he didn't think Stewart could do it... and was wrong. Edwards' Ford was probably faster than Stewart's Chevy, but when the end arrived at Pocono Raceway,
speed was irrelevant. The game involved going as slowly, not as fast, as possible without being passed. The runner-up. Edwards, led 103 of the 200 laps. Stewart led 39. Stewart's victory was his first (the Sprint Ail-Star Race doesn't count officially since it doesn't award points) of the season. Edwards, who won nine races last year, is zero-for-14. Edwards didn't think Stewart could make it on fuel. Actually, it was a snap. Stewart had enough left over to perform the obligatory burnouts in front of the grandstands. Edwards colluded that he could have made it five more laps. Stewart left one of the world's unique race tracks leading the Sprint Cup Series points standings, with victories, at least unofficially, in two of the past four races.

Richard Childress Sprint Cup
Owner, Richard Childress Racing
John Clark / NASCAR This Week
Car owner Richard Childress, right, talks with driver Jeff Burton before a race earlier this season. Childress' race team has had a difficult season, with only Burton in the top 12 of the Sprint Cup standings.
Tough Times
Childress teams struggling, not ruling out more changes
� FEUD OF TOE WEEK~^
By Monte Dutton
NASCAR This Week
LONG POND, Pa. � In addition to being owner of a four-car Sprint Cup team, as well as a Nationwide Series operation, Richard Childress owns a winery and a museum near his Welcome, N.C, shop.
An avid hunter, Childress also was recently elected the board of directors of the National Rifle Association.
Childress' race team has recently fallen on hard times. Three of his drivers � Jeff Burton, Clint Bowyer and Kevin Harvick � made the Chase for the Sprint Cup last year, but only Burton is currently in the top 12. In the past eight races, Bowyer has fall-
en from second to 16th in the rankings, Harvick from 10th to 26th.
In April, Childress responded by switching the crew chiefs of Harvick and Casey Mears, the fourth driver he added this year to his Cup stable. So far, the results have been discouraging.
"We just need to fix all of our race teams, and this is the first step," said Childress. "I'm not above making more changes if that's what it takes. I'm going to be looking hard at everything. We don't have a choice. We have to be competitive."
Dale Earnhardt won six of his seven championships driving Childress' Chevrolets. Childress hasn't used No.
3 since Earnhardt's death in a Daytona crash on Feb. 18, 2001. This year he added No. 33 for. Bowyer, moving Mears to No. 07.
"I had a meeting with our whole organization," said Childress. "Everybody that works on the four race teams was there, and I explained to them that we would make more changes if we had to, and we were going to do what it took to make these cars competitive."
Childress, originally from Winston-Salem, N.C, was once a Cup driver himself. Now 63, Childress never won in 285 Cup starts but finished six times in the top five. His best career finish was a third in Nashville, Tenn., in 1978.
Carl Long
Carl Long vs. National Stock Car Racing Commission
Long, who heads what is hardly a high-dollar team, got no sympathy from the appeals board, which upheld the $200,000 fine levied against his crew chief for an engine that was minutely larger than allowed. NASCAR's action is effectively going to put Long out of business.
NASCAR This Week's Monte Dutton gives his take: "Long reportedly clears about $30,000 a year, if everything goes well. That means he'll be able to drive a race car again in NASCAR in, oh, seven years or so."

Stewart credits Gibbs for his early success as owner
By Monte Dutton
NASCAR This Week
LONG POND, Pa. � ftfny Stewart's success as a combination owner-driver is one of the season's more significant stories. Ten years at Joe Gibbs Racing was, for Stewart, studying at the foot of a master.
"Joe's strength is he knows how to assemble the right people to do the right jobs," said Stewart. "That's proof of what he's done in the NHRA and the NFL and in NASCAR. No matter who it was... they've been successful,
"Joe just knows how to as-
TS AND BOLT
semble the right group of people at the right times, and when he gets them hired, he lets them do their jobs. He doesn't micro-manage them."
It's a good thing � The developing rivalry between Kyle Busch and Dale Earnhardt Jr. � basically Busch has the success, Junior the fans � is a positive, according to Earnhardt's teammate Jeff Gordon.
"Everybody knows'it's good to have a rivalry," said Gordon.
"It's hard to create your own rivalry. I think Kyle is a little bit involved in that. He'd like there to be one. I don't think Junior is really as involved with that as Kyle is.
"That's cool, if it materializes on the race track. To me, rivals really are the guys who are battling on the race track and who have sort of a unique fan base to themselves. That's definitely true among Junior and Kyle because I'm pretty sure Kyle's fans aren't the same as Junior's fans."
Honest to gosh � It's a fa-
mous story at Pocono Raceway. Before Dr. Joe and Rose Matti-oli's track began hosting major NASCAR races, the ruling body's founder, William H.G. France, scrawled a quotation on the back of a business card he handed to Dr. Mattioli.
That card is now enlarged and framed on a wall of Pocono's infield media center. It reads:
On the plains of hesitation lie the bleached bones of millions who, when within the grasp of victory sat and waited, and waiting, died.
The quote is actually inexact, but it was written by George W.
Cecil and wasn't from a poem. It was copy Cecil wrote for an International Correspondence Schools magazine advertisement in 1923.
Prelude to the Prelude �
Tony Stewart's annual celebrity Late Model race, the Prelude to the Dream, was rained out at Eldora Speedway in Ohio on Wednesday night. It had been scheduled for television coverage on HBO Pay-Per-View.
It will now be run on the night of Wednesday, Sept. 9.

Graduate's dad saves graduation at LPHS
Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - After renovation of South Florida Community College's auditorium caused Lake Placid High School to relocate this year's graduation to the gymnasium it looked like the event was destined to be in an unattractive location and some of the students were disappointed. But, the 2009 commencement ceremony was saved by one parent who stepped in to help.
Mark Stewart Sr., father of graduating senior Mark Stewart Jr., volunteered his time, materials and expertise to create a heavenly atmosphere for the Class of 2009 to receive their diplomas.
As a freelance special events creator for Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas, Stewart has a lot of experience in setting up for lavish social affairs. The local gym was a real challenge, but Stewart seamlessly employed his knowledge, skills and creative genius to transform it.
This "transformation" involved 1,000 yards of white crush velvet material that was cabled to the walls from ceiling to floor and 300 yards of sheer white material draped through the ceiling rafters to create a cloud-like effect. Another 100 yards of material was used for the stage area, where back-lit Roman columns were topped with beautiful ferns. Above the stage, an enormous hand-
painted graduation . sign proudly hangs.
Senior class sponsor Kim Wells said, "Mr. Stewart was a God-send; he just called one day and offered to help. I had nothing in the way of graduation decorations and no budget, so he really saved the day. The gym looked better than I could have ever imagined."
Stewart had help from Highlands Greenhouses Inc., which provided more than 50 plants to adorn the stage area. Several parents and Wells' husband helped in the transformation. The students graduated on May 30.

A pill for Not so
Dear Pharmacist: I read you in my local newspaper and find your columns very interesting and refreshing in a sea of misinformation about drugs and supplements. I know you are a pharmacist, but sometimes I think you're anti-medicine. Suzy is that true?
- J.E. Gainesville
Answer: No, it's not. I'm anti "over-medicating." I do "think outside the pill" and I feel strongly that many, chronic diseases can be improved by addressing underlying deficiencies of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and hormones. But thinking outside the pill in an emergency situation can be dan- . gerous, and so I pride myself on being sensible rather than stupid.
The United States healthcare v industry is just that, an "industry." In fact, according to a recent Reuters article, U.S. healthcare spending jumped to $2.2 trillion in 2007; according to a NY Times article, we spent $227.5 billion of that on prescription medications. Just mind-boggling.
I recently went to a pharmacy that was tightly wedged between a fast food restaurant, a coffee house, and an ice cream parlor - a brilliant location choice by the pharmacy owners. Why? Because you can get your trans fat-laden burger and go straight to the pharmacy to get Lipitor for cholesterol. They both have drive-throughs so you won't burn a single calorie. Less than a block away, go to the coffee shop and get your double-shot mocha latte and then swing through the pharmacy to get your Xanax and Norvasc to suppress the jitters and control blood pressure.
Why stop there - go to the ice cream parlor and get a hot fudge sundae (it contains about 50 grams of carbs) and come back to the pharmacy to get your Glucophage to reduce blood sugar. Get some antacids while you're at it. When the boss asks where you've been for three hours, just tell him you

every ill?
fclSt ...
went to pick up your prescriptions.
Is it just me, or do you also believe that our lifestyle choices and dietary habits put us on a medication merry-go-round? Americans have the mindset that a pill will fix every single ill. Wrong, dead wrong in some cases. Many popular drags just mask symptoms or cause serious side � effects. V
Here are some groups of people for whom medication is essential ' and/or life-saving:
� Asthmatics who need breathing inhalers
� People with life-threatening allergies who need an Epi-pen "
� People hurting with chronic or acute pain
� Anyone with neuropathy or phantom pain
� People with narcolepsy who need stimulants
� Epileptics who need antiseizure medicine
� People with heartbeat irregularities or angina
� People prone to anxiety before MRIs, dental procedures or "surgery
The list goes on because some medications are simply invaluable. But what bothers me is the indisr criminate prescribing of drugs to people who could improve their health naturally.
Did you know?
That antibiotics may be helpful in preventing Lyme disease if you take them shortly after a tick bite.

By Chapman Chamber/in
SEBRING - The paper mentioned Kennieth Griffiths, 95 of Sebring, born West Point, Ga. and died May 25. The obituary did not mention that she was a real people person and that she loved her cards. Also no mention that she was a lifetime member of our club and that many more than just club members will dearly miss her.
Bill and Linda Tedford have left' for Maine for a short visit. Tony and Marcie Beckwith are now in Michigan, so now they can have fresh rhubarb if they want.
Ernie Kelley is a player that is next to impossible to beat. He is doing very well for a new member and player. It is his wife that is trying to start a new game of cards at the club. She has received one phone call about this the last time I checked. Are you not ready to play pinochle at this time? Call Sue and she will help by starting a game for beginners. The number to get on the pinochle track is 471-0249.
The club has a couple of new members that joined the club to play ping-pong, but they have discovered shuf-fleboard in the meantime. Scott and Terry Daisey drive up from Lake Placid for a game at the club. They are originally from New Jersey and, a nice addition. It is always fun to see a person get excited over shuffleboard when they start.
Virginia Stump will have the tubes removed from her 'eyes this next month. Larry is not able to walk without his cane and both said .that they miss shuffleboard and the many nice people.
Men are wanted for line dancing, Zumba and ping-pong:

LAKE PLACID - June 1 we gathered to have our coed coffee. Our hosts were Betty and Jack Post and our emcee was Luetta Kiger. Loretta opened the meeting by telling a few cute little jokes.
Our park manager told the residents that there seems to be a few stray cats in the park. Unless you know who owns the animal, don't start feeding it because we will have some difficulty keeping the park under control. Animals are not allowed to run free throughout the park. He suggested we call animal control so they can set traps and catch stray animals.
Luetta asked for a show of hands of others who will be leaving to go North to their home states. We have two more residents who will be leaving this week. We had no visitors.
Carol Noel has two sympathy sheets for the residents to sign. Bill Monahan passed away at the Palms where he lived over the past few years. Also Diane Whitmore passed away. She put a "Thinking of You" form for all to sign for
Polly and Ed Fisher, who recently moved to Ohio to an assisted living home. There are get well sheets to sign for Keith Clouston, who is the son of Arlene and Bob Clouston and has undergone back surgery; also Jim Hogan, who had afjlood clot behind his knee; arid Marilyn Cromer had cataract surgery.
Carol announced that the Military Soup and Sandwich will be from 5-6:30 p.m. Sunday, June 14. The Mustangs will have their lunch out on Tuesday, June 16 at Jaxson's on Lake June Road beginning at 11:30 a.m. Ladies Day Out will be at the Blue Crab Restaurant on Tuesday, June 16 beginning at 11 a.m. There are sign-up sheets on the bulletin board. Since we do not have a committee for the month of June, we have no plans for a carry-in dinner Thursday, June 25.
Luetta then asked Virginia Tharp to play the piano for those who were celebrating their birthdays June 1-8. We had two ladies present to sing Happy Birthday to -Stephanie Schechter and Susan Cohen. Those celebrating their anniversary were Dave and Laura Baillie and Clare and Maury Bloch.
The Salad Bar Luncheon was held June 9. The ladies each brought a dish to pass and had a good time. The pancake breakfast was served June 6 with a good turnout. It was a wonderful breakfast of delicious pancakes, sausage, fresh orange juice and coffee, all for $3.
Tuesday - Ladies Coffee had 10 ladies present. We were happy to have Kathleen Margetts and Stephanie Schechter with us to sing Happy Birthday to. The ladies agreed that even though we do not have a June committee, they would get together next Tuesday following the Ladies Coffee and set up the Salad Bar.

Philanderer's wife invites mistress to be her guest
\ Dear Readers: In .my many years of involvement with this column (and before), I have heard some creative name-calling and may have even indulged in a few choice words myself, l^ut your scatological creativity in describing "The Other Woman, Anywhere, USA" (March 11) singed rhy eyebrows to the roots. Some read- . elrs thanked me for my reply. Others felt I was too easy on the letter writer. And others ... well, read on:
� Dear Abby: My husband "works long hours" and frequently attends evening "meetings" or "stag functions." He is 'loo tired" to notice my negligee and perfume and "too busy" to meet me for lunch or respond to my loving e-mails. When I'm not at my full-time job, I'm the one washing his leftover dishes and dirty socks, cleaning toilets, fixing torn screens, preparing the dry wall our kids damaged, unclogging drains and doing the other minor repairs.
' He says there's no money for a night out, yet I find dinner receipts for two in his dirty clothes. (The income I bring in must make some difference.) I go to bed alone and starved for sex more nights than I can count. Is this the intact marriage "Other Woman" is trying to preserve? She gets the perks while I'm picking up the dirty towels.
. Please, take him! Give me my child support and alimony and you support this "wonderful" man. Clean up after him and then see how much "quality time" you enjoy, Sweetie!
- The Wife Back Home Dear Abby: May I offer a different
Dear Abby
perspective? I have more respect for a man who sticks with his family and remains in the house providing support and raising his kids, but finds a sexual relationship outside the home. You want to know what I think is really toxic? A man who stays married and celibate, just letting his resentment fester and build. Try walking a mile in someone else's shoes before passing judgment, lady!
- Male Reader in the USA Dear Abby: I am a child of an unfaithful marriage. As a pre-teen and teen I often cried and prayed to God for my parents to divorce. Children know when a marriage isn't right. I still mourn for the well-adjusted adult I might have become if I'd had two honest and separate but happy households in which to grow Up.
How convenient of "Other Woman" to blame affairs on the wives while overlooking the husband's part in the demise of the marriage. It baffles me that she believes she knows the whole story about her lover's marriage. Please tell her that the only "best friend" her lover has is himself.
- Another Perspective in Ohio Dear Abby: I Was "The Other Man" for 30 years. I was a teenager and still in high school when I met "Sue." She was in her 20s, gorgeous, and I was earning money mowing lawns. I was a
virgin. It started with me rubbing sun-tan lotion on her back. Her husband was in the military.
One day she told me she was lonely because her husband was gone so much and their 5-year-old was in kindergarten. She asked me to be her "special friend." After high school she paid for me to go to trade school. For 29 years 1 followed her wherever the military sent her husband. I even had a vasectomy so I wouldn't get her pregnant. I lived my life for her.
Her husband has now retired from the military. She has time for me now maybe once a month. What we had is fading more each week. She is my first and only love, and I'll never find anyone to love as I have loved her, or father children of my own. Is my life worth living?
- Depressed Out West Dear Depressed: Yes, but it may take counseling to help you realize it. Please don't wait. Your life is worth living. The ability to father a\child is not the most important quality many women want in a husband.
Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Good advice for everyone - teens to seniors -is in 'The Anger in All of Us and How to Deal With It.' To order, send a business-size, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $6 (U.S. funds only) to: Dear Abby, Anger Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447.

How do you cope with losing your job?
Every day we read of more companies laying off workers. While job loss may have been a fear for many last year, today's troubled economic climate has made it a reality for millions.
While losing a job may bring financial problems for most people, it's also important to understand it can also bring significant mental and emotional stress.
For many people, losing a job brings reactions similar to the pattern experienced in the death of a loved one or the end of a relationship. A first reaction is usually one of shock and denial, of being unable to believe this has really happened.
That's often followed by anger. And while the source of that anger may be those who took away your job, most times the anger is taken out on those close to you. You may find yourself tense, more easily upset and quicker to react to family and friends.
You may also go through a stage of "bargaining," a pre-oqcupation with trying to get that old job back, no matter howt unrealistic or even undesirable that might be. At the same time you may experience sadness and depression as you question your worth and abilities.
It's important to recognize that these are all normal reactions. Understanding that can help you get through those stages quicker, accept the loss and start creating a new work life.
You can help yourself by trying to avoid adding extra stress to your life. Tell family and friends what's happened and what you're feeling, so they can help. Eat healthy, exercise, get plenty of rest and keep socially involved, rather than with-

drawing from those close to you. Avoid sudden, rash major life decisions and changes.
Instead, carefully evaluate and set future goals. Do you need more education, to look to a new career field or to sharpen up your job skills? Evaluate what will make you feel rewarded and fulfilled in a new job. Are you using your network of family, friends and other contacts to help in your job search? Rather than dwelling on the lost job, focus on a positive future.
Losing a job, especially one you've held for a long time, can bring real traumu and stress to anyone. If you find you're being overwhelmed by the experience, seek professional help. A counseling professional can provide stress management, career guidance and other services to help you handle this loss and move on to a more positive future.

Delicious food.
Great wine. Good friends. This is what summer entertaining is all about.
When the weather warms up, so does the grill and with it comes outdoor dining for friends and family. Some of the' best dishes are those that are big on flavor and easy to prepare ahead of time. Sometimes taking traditional ingredients and showcasing them in new and mouthwatering ways is an easy way to showcase the inner gourmet chef in all of us.
Fruit is incredibly versatile, in everything from appetizers to desserts. One of the most flavorful, adaptable and nutritious fruits is the fig. An excellent source of .fiber, fat- and cholesterol-free, dried and fresh figs from California are the ultimate versatile fruit. From savory chutneys to sweet tarts, figs add a depth of flavor to any dish.
Picking the perfect wine to complement the meal doesn't need to be difficult. For food-friendly varietals that pair beautifully with fruits, cheeses and entrees such as a succulent pork tenderloin, Mirassou Winery� has several offerings � from a fruit-focused Chardonnay to a bright and approachable Pinot Noir.
Try these simple recipes for a small dinner party for four, or double them for a group of eight. For more recipes, visit ww W.California Figs.com and www.mirassou.com.
To celebrate the family's 155th. anniversary, Mirassou Winery has partnered with chefs across the country on a Taste & Toast tour. Find food and wine pairing tips and recipes at wwwjnirassou.com.
