Juneteenth brings

cultures together


By ED BALDRIDGE

SEBRING Those
wishing to experience
multi-cultural family fun
will get their chance on
June 20, when the Florida
Sportsmen Association
and the New Washington
heights Concerned
Citizens, Inc. present the
10th annual Juneteenth
Music Festival.
Held yearly on Lemon
Avenue in Sebring,
according to organizer
Robert Saffold, the event
is an attempt to inform
and bring the community
together.
"We have over 28
nations represented in our
high school, and the event
helps-to let people get to
know each other a little
better," Saffold said.
Juneteenth brings food
from all over the world to
downtown Sebring includ-
ing Jamaican, Haitian, and
Chinese dishes, and it is
free for vendors to set-up
for the day, Saffold said.
Running from 8:30 a.m.
until 8:30 p.m., the event
promises lots of games for
the smaller children, and
music'and dancing for the
older crowds.
Additionally, according
to Saffold, the event is
designed to help get infor-
mation out to the those
who need it for everything
from diabetes prevention
to housing applications.
"Over the years, we
noticed that some folks
needed help understand-
ing some of the paperwork
and health care issues out
there. So we allow county
and municipalities gov-
ernment, as well as any
health care agencies, to
participate and provide
assistance and informa-
tion.
This year, the event is

also designed to show off
the improvements made in
the Washington Heights
area.
"There has been a lot of
renovations along Lemon
Avenue, and the
Washington Heights
group was a big part of
that process. We just want
to give people a chance to
see that you can improve
your neighborhood if you
work together," Saffold
said.
The event last year had
30 vendors from all over
the county, providing
everything from food, to
clothes, to information,
and Saffold stated *that
more than 1,000 people
were in attendance until
the rain started.
"The weather cut us
short last year, but if we
hold off the rain this year,
we should see a bigger
crowd as the day goes
along," Saffold said.

Tight Southside CRA


budget for

By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
clrtoitlpltetrJtfle' s@'nc,,'.SM( an ', ,
AVON PARK There
was some good news for
the Community
Redevelopment Agency's
Sourlhside Advisory Board
IThursday 'night. The
expected reduction of tax
revenue for fiscal. year
:2009-10 was only 7 per-
cent, not the 20 percent as
had been estimated.
This means the board
will have a budget of
$89,364 for the new fiscal
year, which begins Oct. 1.
Then came the hard
'realities.
While. C.B. Shirey, act-
ing director for the CRA,
explained that the figures
:presented were all high
Numbers, by the time the
Board has paid its stan-
dard obligations, there
will be very little left over
for development or
-enhancement projects.
For example, because
ithe selection sub-commit-
tee recommended the new
;CRA executive director
,be a full-timhe city
'employee, the Southside's
portion of his or her
:salary will amount to
$21,275. That is assuming
'the new director is paid at
the top end of the salary
range advertised -
,$50,000. The figure also
includes the benefit pack-
.age the new director will
'be offered.
It does not include any
funding for relocating to
'Avon Park, so Shirey
'warned the board there
might be that additional
expense.
The Southside's share
,of yearly administrative
costs comes to $2,900
Shirey told the board.
That figure includes the
'Southside's share of the
cost of the city attorney,


2009-2010

the city audit, and payroll
expenses for the director.
After allotting $1.500
to support local events,
and $500 for Triangle
Park maintenance, the
'board would be left
approximately $43,000
for the rest of the fiscal
year.
It was for that reason
the advisory board voted
against budgeting any of
the remaining funds for
demolition of abandoned
or condemned properties
in 2009-2010.
Traditionally, clearing
out unsafe buildings is
part of a CRA's mission,
but when the board
learned from Shirey that a
single demolition costs
$5,000, and that funds for
four demolitions had been
tentatively set aside -
that is $20,00, or almost
half 'of its remaining,
budget it preferred to
put the money toward
facade grants instead.
Final disposition of
next year's Southside
CRA funds will be decid-
ed by the city council sit-
ting as the main CRA
board.

paint can reduce basecoat
emissions by as much as 80
percent.
The other benefit results
from the fact that water-
based paint dries quickly, in a
matter of seconds, and
requires no heat. Instead cool
-'air is forced through a hand-
held nozzle aimed at the
paint.
Oil-based paint, on the
other hand, needs to be baked
under hot lights, typically for
as long as a half hour or
more. In addition to saving
energy, it saves the customer
time, he said.
And, water based paint
doesn't separate, Colbert
said, and it has just as broad a
range of colors.
In fact, he added, because

so many new car manufactur-

Colbert said water based
paint is already mandatory in
California and that it is only
a matter of time until it
becomes the industry stan-
dard.
As it is he said, his is the
first shop to make the switch
in Highlands or Hardee
counties, although other
shops around Florida use it
as well.
The switch is expensive,
Colbert said. He has spent
tens of thousands of dollars
in buying new paint and
equipment. However, he
added, that cost is not being
passed on to the consumer.

Golfer

struck by

lighting

flown to

Tampa

By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING A man who
was struck by lightning was
flown to Tampa General
Hospital Friday morning, but
officials have not released
any up-to-date information
on his condition.
Lightning struck the man
Thursday at about 4 p.m. as
he finished a round at the
Spring Lake Golf Resort off
of U.S. 98.
Steve Coltharp, director of
Highlands County
Emergency Medical
Services, didn't know the
man's name, but said he was
middle aged and was appar-
ently with a group of golfers
from Palm Beach County.
Chief Swen Swenson of
the Lorida Volunteer Fire
Department said the light-
ning started a small fire in a
tree near the 18th green,
where the man was struck.
Initially the victim was
being kept in Highlafds
County after the incident due
to weather conditions, but
after it cleared he was deter-
mined to be "too unstable,"
Coltharp said.
He was eventually flown
out early Friday before 8 a.m.
"The flight crew probably
figured they could handle
him for the next half hour and
would have OK-ed to fly
him," he said.
Coltharp has friends who
have been struck by lightning
before and survived, but said
it can "cause major vessel
damage."
"You never know what it's
going to do, all it wants to do
is.go to ground," he said. "It
looks for the path of -least
resistance so if it hits you ...
it finds a big artery, that is a
path of least resistance; it's
going to follow it, across the
heart, up the feet."
EMS personnel didn't find
any major wounds on the
man. Lightning usually
leaves an entrance and exit
wound, Coltharp said.
"It looked like a torso
wound," he said. "If it hits
you mid torso it can go two
or three different directions.
It is extremely powerful."

hospital has seen its first
arrest..
Kevin Orozco, 19, former-i

Avon Park, was taken into
custody on a warrant in
Wake County, N.C.
The incident happened the
morning of April 18 in Sun
'N Lake South as the victim
was walking between St.
Lucie Street and the Lupita
Grocery Store.
In an interview the day of
the incident, Lt. Jess Purvis


of the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office said the vic-
tim was approached by three
or four men he knew by first
name only and was asked for
money.
One of the men, identified
as Orozco in the arrest
report, was allegedly armed
with a machete and struck
the victim over the head sev-
eral times when he resisted.
"My understanding was he
fought back and they didn't
actually get anything from
him," Purvis said in April.
The arrest report was
heavily redacted to keep

Davis was charged with attempted murder,
discharging a firearm in public and shooting
into an occupied dwelling. He remained in the
Highlands County Jail on $105,500 bond.
There were witnesses to the incident, but

"There were names

whoever this person is will
compete with whoever else
we find from the extended
search."
Noel said he understands
why Pallone is leaving.
"Basically the situation 'is
Sarah is a young, talented
woman and she is in the mid-
dle of her career and has been
offered probably ,a fairly
exciting position and I think
she will flourish in it and
deserves it," he said. "I'm
sad for (the chamber) but I'm


happy for her. She has sacri-
ficed here to help us do
things well and I appreciate
her."
Highlands County Habit

Director Michael Jacobson
called Pallone "a first class
professional" and said she
has the interest of the com-
munity at heart when taking
the position with his organi-

Pallone was a member of
the Habitat board of directors
before she tdok the position,
which Jacobson said had
been open for some time.
"We were kind of waiting
to see who we could identify,

on the board," he said. "She
sees herself as someone who
can help us achieve our
goals."

Approximately 50 school bus maintenance technicians from central and south Florida
attended a five-day workshop organized by the Florida Association for Pupil
Transportation (FAPT) and South Florida Community College's Corporate and
Continuing Education (CCE) Department. This was the 18th year FAPT used SFCC's
Highlands Campus educate technicians about diagnosing and repairing school buses.
As part of the program, participants completed the requirements to become Vehicle
Service Technicians (VSTs), Master Repair Technicians (MRTs), and state-certified
school bus inspectors. In one exercise, Brian Keisacker (center), an FAPT member and
vehicle maintenance coordinator for Manatee County's public school district, talked to
participants about school bus engines. 'It's critical to help technicians remain up-to-
date on the latest technology,' he said. 'This benefits the county's school district and
ensures the safety of children.' For more information about SFCC's continuing educa-
tion courses, call Lorrie Key, CCE program coordinator, at 784-7033.

History looks to be
repeating itself
Editor:
During the Korean.War, President
Harry Truman seized the steel mills and
told them that they would have to man-
ufacture ammunition, and that employ-
ees could not strike. The Supreme,
Court said, "No you can't do that."
The Franklin Roosevelt
Administration acquired land in the
Tennessee Valley in 1916 with the
iintent of constructing a dam that would
generate electricity needed to produce
explosives for the World War I effort.
As of 2009, the dam has still not been
bWilt, and as of today it is still illegal
rf any company to compete in selling
electricity in that area.
Forty years ago President Richard
N ixon said, "Amtrak might lose money
for a couple of years, then they will be
sglf sustainable." Our federal govern-
ment still owns Amtrak and it has never
Made enough money to be self sustain-
able. As of 2009, it is still illegal to
start a company to compete with
Amtrak. UPS and FedEx can't compete
with the U.S. Post Office with first
class mail. How many increases have
we had with the Post Office in the just
in last two years, and they are still in a
financial shortfall.
GM is now in bankruptcy with an
estimated bailout potential of $50 bil-
lion of American taxpayers money.
People on either side of the isle; liber-
al, conservative, republican, democrat,
socialist and libertarian predict that
after bankruptcy it will take more than
$2 billion each month to keep GM
afloat. How is GM possibly going to
sell enough cars to pay back the tax-
payers?
Think about this, today's taxpayer
dollars are going into GM to hire lob-
byists to lobby the Congress on behalf
of GM which is owned by our govern-
ment. It's a circular movement of tax-
payer dollars with rules being changed
retroactively
President Obama said the other day,
"I don't want to be the CEO of GM, I

The Holy Land
Editor:
During these continuous times of tur-
moil between Palestinians and Jews in
the so-called "Holy Land" ... it would
be wise to recall the then-pregnant
Mary, mother of Jesus (and also his
first disciples) recorded by Luke 1:46-
47, 54-55, "He has helped his servant
Israel, remembering to be merciful to
Abraham and his descendants forever
even as He said to our fathers."
Notice "forever," which includes the
time from 1948 (Isaiah 41:8-16) the
more recent establishment of Israel,
until 2009 today and beyond, since
more than 2,000 years ago!

Why Gitmo and not
abortion clinics?
Editor:
I have a question.
If President Obama is so upset about
the use of waterboarding'as a torture
technique at Guantanamo Bay and
wants to close the facility down, why
doesn't he close all the abortion clinics
in the United States? I believe that the
baby in the womb endures more pain
before it dies while having its body dis-
sected or its skin burned with a saline
solution than any torture technique
used on war criminals at Gitmo.

When our children are
born, we tend to hang on to
them. At first, if we want to
go anywhere we have to
carry them. And we don't
mind holding them close.
When they discover the
powers or locomotion, we
lo6k for ways to keep them
close and spfe. Safety gates
go up to keep them out of
certain rooms, and we make
them hold our hands when
we even think about crossing
a street. '
When John was a toddler,
Don and I resorted to a har-
ness and leash to give him
the illusion of being inde-
pendent while still under our
control. If we hadn't, we'd
probably still be looking for
him in some mall some-
where.
But most parents under-
stand they can't hold on to
their children forever. It's
not a question of if we'll let
;go it's when, and how
much this time?
The first time we let go
might be the first time we
leave them with another
human being while we go
6ut and do something. I
don't remember when this
was for John or James. But
apparently it wasn't too trau-
matic, since I know we'd
employed a number of
babysitters over the years.
The first day of school?
Another time we let go. Now
we're letting them spend a
big chunk of time with
someone else and a room
full of kids we know nothing
about. It's sometimes easy,
sometimes hard for both
mother and child.
As the boys got older, Don
and I wrestled with the ques-
tion of letting go. How much
freedom to give them?
Which battles not to fight?
There's no hard and fast
rules for raising kids. Lots of
good books out there, but
each child is a unique crea-
ture sometimes the books
don't cover the marvelous
human being that is your
child.
You can't give a child no
freedom or responsibility for
18 years and them expect
them to know how to be an
adult when the time comes.

Nor can you totally remove
your rules and guidelines in
those years and expect them
to be decent human beings.
It's a balancing act one
that you perform not sure
how secure the safety net is
under you.
We chose our battles care-
fully. Music was one battle
we refrained from (though I
reserved the right to mock
their choices, as they did
mine). We mostly didn't
fight over clothes, though if
their pants had enough holes
to'get them arrested for inde-,
cency we'd put our foot
down.
We did insist that they
attend worship on Sunday
mornings even if they'd been
playing video games until 4
.a.m. previously. We insisted
they treat us and others with
respect.
But as John and James get
older, we loosened our grip a
little more. Not totally I
don't think a parent can ever
fully let go. But what was
once an iron grip is more
like a gentle support now.
On IJune 5th, Don and I let
go of John a little more as he
stood before God and wit-
nesses and married the
woman he loves, my new
daughter Amanda.
I'm blessed in that this
time the letting go wasn't
nearly as painful as it could
be. Amanda is a lovely
woman who loves God and
my son. She makes him a
better person. When she's
with him, my usually somber
son has a smile that lights up
the room.
He will always be my
child. I will always have
some small hold on him,
formed the moment I knew
of his existence.
But as I sit here, I know
he was ready for me to let
him go a little more. And,
thank God, I was ready too.

Several help as car
ignites
Editor:
Just wanted to say thanks
to Papa John's Pizza, Sue's
Cubby Hole (in Sebring
Square) and others who
assisted my mom and me the
other day when our car
caught on fire.
We were getting ready to
leave when I got in the car
and saw flames and my
mother smelled smoke. I told
Mom "I see flames!" She
said, "You mean smoke?" I
said "No, I see flames!" So
we got out of the car and
Sue from Sue's Cubby Hole
allowed me to call my uncle
and cousin on her cell phone
(and use her ladies room).
She was very helpful, calling
911, monitoring the situa-
tion; and a Papa John's
employee came out with the
fire extinguisher, along with
others checking it out.
The policeman came and
directed traffic until the fire
department came to check it
further and the car could be
moved out of the way.
Thanks so much for help-
ing us in this predicament.
It's good to know there are
people who care and will
take the time to help.

The reason I was in the

especially when you are hav-

problem was called "atrial

irregular heart beat, as well
as a virus hurting my heart. I
am now on medicine for
three weeks hoping they will
help my heart go back to it's

Church zoning still

under review in AP


By CHRISTOPHER
"' TUFFLEY
cith.opher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVOiN'PARK In order
to settle the conundrum it
faces regarding disallowing
churches in designated com-
mercial zones, the city's
Planning & Zoning Board
asked the, Central Florida
Regional Planning Council
for assistance at its Tuesday
night regular meeting.
In, order to meet a federal
mandate requiring religious
organizations to receive
equal treatment with non-
religious organizations in
terms of allowing assembly,
the city must first determine
what "public assembly use"
is. That is because once a
city allows non-religious
public assembly in a zone, it
also must allow religious
assembly.
The planning council was
asked for its input because
in various 'lawsuits courts
have allowed broad defini-
tions of what constitutes
non-religious public assem-
bly it could even include
movie houses and bars
because people gather in
both to do one thing togeth-
er.
The council has the
resources and expertise to
do the research.


Big plans for

That way no roads have to
be closed, the display will
be' even more. spectacular,
.and the sounds reverberate
as if in an amphitheater.
In other.words, he said, it
will be the best fireworks
display yet.
.The cost of the fireworks,
which have to be detonated
electronically, will be some-
what more expensive than
earlier years.
The Main Street CRA
advisory board voted unani-
mously to contribute $2,000


Creating a definition,
however, is only part of the
solution. The next step is to
decide where all places of
assembly may go..
For that the Planning and
Zoning Board also asked the
council to draw a map --
once it is determined what
constitutes,a. place of non-
religious public assembly -
of Where all those places
are.
In areas where non-reli-
gious public assembly use
already occurs, churches
would be allowed. In places
where there are no current
non-religious public use
assembly uses, the area
would be zoned to keep both
those and churches out.
This zoning conflict came
to light recently when the
Union Congregational
Church at 101 Jim Rodgers
Ave., which is zoned resi-
dential, opened what
amounts to a lunch time
restaurant. The church was
cited by code enforcement
for operating a business in a
residential zone.
It was when the sugges-
tion was made to rezone the
church property commercial
in order to accommodate the
restaurant that the conflict
with the city's ordinance
was raised.

Highlands boasts the best in BMX


Special to the News-Sun
AVON *PARK Florida's
Sunshine State Association
(SSA) plays host to the
largest BMX state race sea-
son in the country.
SSA races under the
National Bicycle League
(NBL) rules and according
to the BMX Today
Magazine's track directory
listing of all active NBL
tracks, in the country, Florida
leads with a list of 20 volun-
teer run tracks.
California and Michigan
list 10 active tracks, while
all other states average only
about five active tracks per
state.
Not only the largest by
rider participation, but
Florida is the currently the
only state that hosts two
point-race seasons per year:
the Florida Summer Series
Championship that runs
August to November and
Florida State Series
Championship that runs
from November to May.
On average the attendance
for SSA state series quali-
fiers are larger and more
competitive than most of the
regional and national quali-
fiers, across the region.
This dedication to BMX
racing in Florida has pro-
duced, some of the most well
known talents in BMX rac-
ing and provides a breeding
ground for future BMX
stars.
Highlands County YMCA
BMX is proud to be listed
among those 20 active vol-
unteer ran tracks in Florida.
During the 2009 season

Director and cruiser rider

from Highlands BMX, spoke
to Sarasota, Florida's Pro-
Racer Percy Owens.
Percy was quoted saying
that, "Highlands is a BMX
rider's oasis!"
Percy has over 15 #1
Florida State Championship
titles and also holds a num-
ber of national and world
titles as well.
He has raced BMX for
more than 20 years all over
the country and puts
Highlands BMX among the
top on his list.
When Highlands B.MX is
listed in the NBL directory


to host a state, regional or
national race, riders take
.note they want to race
here.
In speed, length and loca-
tion, Highlands YMCA
BMX is one of the best
tracks in the state.
For the expert rider, the
speed and length of the track
gives; a rider a "theme park
ride" type thrill that most
BMXers are searching for.
At. the same time, your
rookie and cruiser riders can
pace themselves and enjoy a
nice, leisurely, all downhill
ride from starting gate to


finish line.
Our central location
places us within 3-4 hours
from most all the active
tracks in Florida.'
To a BMX rider and par-
ent, a 3-4 hour road trip is
like Sunday afternoon drive,
and just think, this track is in
our own back yard.
BMX is fun for the whole
family as riders are grouped
by skill level and then age.
If you can ride on two
wheels you can ride BMX.
You move at your own
pace and ability, you
progress as fast as you want


There are no tryouts, no
age limits and nobody rides
the bench.
Highlands YMCA BMX is
located at 730 CR 17-A in
Avon Park.

Sebring bats break loose to top Avon Park

AVON PARK Sebring
American downed Avon
Park 17-7 in the first game
of the District 8-AA base-
ball tournament at Durrah
Martin Baseball Complex
Saturday morning.
Avon Park was able to
hold Sebring 1-2-3 in the
first inning and jumped out
front 2-0 before the close of
the frame.
Sebring picked up just
two in the top of the second,
but Avon Park answered
back with two of their own
to keep their lead 4-2 before
retiring.
But Sebring's Carlson
Angell ,woke the bat gods
and started a rally in the
fourth that put them out 7-4
before Avon park could shut
them down.
The li'l Red Devils were
able to battle back a bit,
bringing in two off of Tray'
Pollitt-Hill's solid hitting,
but could not stretch out
enough to regain the lead.
The boys in blue were
able to put four more on the
board in the fifth while


holding Avon Park down.
The hard hitting bats of
Angell, Joshua Rivera,
Davon Terry, and George
Martinez in the middle of
the line-up kept Avon Park
off balance for the entire
game.
All four sluggers went


three-for-four, contributing
to the bulk of the Sebring
runs.
Avon Park's bats were not
as successful, but the Red's
Dalton Whitman hammered
out two-for-three and man-
aged three RBI.

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

Hoehne 5:
Magic, Rays

and a silly

little blunder
I guess I'm giving the
good ol' 'reverse jinx' a try
in writing off the Orlando
Magic in the NBA Finals.
I'm well-versed in the
accepting defeat, a born and
bred Cub fan, on behalf of
my team and have found that
by accepting a bit early,
sometimes, it can be staved
off a bit.
Kind of like the Lloyd
Dobler quote in "Say
Anything," 'if you start out
depressed everything's kind
of a pleasant surprise.'
But not to worry, this is a
good, young basketball team
with a budding superstar in
Dwight Howard.
I mean, here's a guy with
about two offensive moves,
so far, and while he has his
off-nights scoring, he can go
for 40 and 20 on any given
night.
And he estimates he's
only at about 20-percent of
his full potential which is
a scary thought.
Keep in mind, also, had
Jameer Nelson not been
injured these last four
months and just now making
an effort to help the team -
even if he'd come back, let's
say, a couple weeks before
the playoffs started, the
Finals results might well be
reversed right now.
And speaking of reversals,
what happened to the Tampa
Bay Rays?
They edged by a pretty
weak Washington Nationals
team Friday night to inch
their record to 32-31 before
a crowd of a little over
18,000.
So it seems the Rays faith-
ful have lost faith by not
turning up in droves to
watch a team that was in the
World Series last year.
Maybe they're working on
their own reverse jinx.
When I put together the
second page of this section
and work over the 'league
leaders,' I find myself high-
lighting plenty of Rays play-
ers for their offensive num-
bers.
Between Carlos Pena's
homers, Carl Crawford's
stolen bases and runs and
Evan Longoria's RBI and
doubles, it would seem the
Rays are piling up runs on
their opponents.
But conspicuously missing
among those league leaders
are any Tampa pitchers.
Which goes to show that

Shoreline anglers need to buy


their license by Aug. 1


MyFWC.com
Florida's resident saltwa-
ter anglers who fish from
shore or a structure affixed
to shore will need to buy a
$7.50 (plus administrative
and handling fees) shoreline
fishing license by Aug. 1,
unless they have a regular
resident saltwater fishing
license.
The new license applies
only to Florida resident salt-
water anglers who fish from
shore.
Resident anglers may pre-
fer to purchase the, regular
recreational saltwater
license that covers them, no
matter where they fish for
saltwater species in Florida..
Florida has always
required non-residents to
have a license when fishing
from shore, and they will
still need to purchase a reg-
ular non-resident saltwater
fishing license.
The new shoreline saltwa-
ter fishing license for resi-


dents goes on sale July 15.
It provides all of the same
exemptions as a regular
license, including senior cit-
izens, children, disabled
people who meet certain
qualifications, active-duty
military) personnel while
home on leave, and anglers
who fish from a licensed
pier.
In addition, the shoreline
license requirement includes'
two new exemptions:
anglers drawing food
stamps, temporary cash
assistance or Medicaid; and
anglers fishing in their home
counties who use cane poles
or other gear that does not,
depend on mechanical
retrieval.
At. the request of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC), the Florida
Legislature passed the new
license requirement to head
off a federal license require-


ment that will go into effect
Jan. 1, 2010, and will have a
$15-$25 fee beginning in
2011.
Florida's new shoreline
license exempts this state's
anglers from the federal
license requirement.
Several hunting, fishing
and conservation organiza-
tions requested other permit
fee changes, which do not
take effect until July 2010.
They include increases in
the state waterfowl, stamp,
from the current $3 to $5; in
the resident turkey permit,
from $5 to $10; the nonresi-
dent turkey permit, from
$100 to $125; the wildlife
management area permit for
hunting, fishing and other
recreational uses, from $25
to $30; the limited-entry or
special-opportunity hunt
fee, from $100 per day to
$150 per day and $250 per
week to $300 per week, as
determined by FWC


Commissioners; the snook
permit, from $2 to $10; and
the lobster permit, from $2
to $5.
Also, new laws create a
$5 annual deer permit (in
addition to the current hunt-
ing license requirement for
deer hunters) and allow the
agency to charge up to $5
per day for non-hunting and
non-fishing recreation on
certain wildlife management
areas.
The FWC will evaluate
areas where it is the lead
manager to determine where
to charge the fees and how
much to charge.
In addition, the state will
use up to 10 percent of the
hunting and sport-fishing
fees to promote those sports,
with emphasis on youth par-
ticipation.
For more information
about outdoor recreation
and FWC programs, go to

Doesn't Milton Bradley make a


game
Continued from 1B
pitching is the key, as it was
last year with the run to the
Series.
Then again, my Cubs are
getting pretty good pitching
and they fell to the .500
mark for the 11th time this
season.
That's because their
offense is about as meek as
the Cowardly Lion during
mating season.
So it goes to show that


called 'Clueless'?


even good pitching can't
carry,a team on its own..
Then there's the mental
side of the game, which was
in evidence Friday as Cub
outfielder Milton Bradley
caught a fly ball with run-
ners at first and third.
Thinking it was the third
out, Bradley posed for a
moment before tossing the
ball into the bleachers only,
problem was, it was just the
second out.


I won't get. on him too
much, as the runner from
third would have scored any-
way and no further damage
was done.
So it just turned out to be
a silly little blunder which
is kind of what the team's
season has been thus far, a
silly little blunder.

Highlands County cattle ranch hosts Girlfriend Getaway


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Florida's top two industries,
tourism and agriculture, can sometimes find
themselves at odds. However, one Central
Florida ranch recently hosted a group of
tourists in one of the leisure travel compo-
nent's most rapidly growing categories:
Girlfriend Getaways.
The concept of agrotourism is a direct
expansion of ecotourism, which encourages
visitors to experience agricultural life first
hand. During a weekend stay at Rafter T
Ranch in Sebring, about a dozen women
arrived from various locations in Florida and
Atlanta to enjoy.some much needed R&R in
the country.
The women enjoyed a swamp buggy tour
of the 5,200-acre ranch while co-owner
Jimmy Wohl provided an overview, on ranch
management and the Florida cattle industry.
They also enjoyed practicing their aim during
target practice, an evening buggy ride to find


wildlife, massages, photography, a wine tast-
ing and educational class by Barefoot Wines,
a hot air balloon ride courtesy of Balloons
And Beyond, and an overall peaceful vaca-
tion in Florida's pristine habitat.
Host Casey Wohl, who grew up on this
ranch, is the author of the Girls Getaway
Guide series, which are city-specific travel
guides for women. Known as The Getaway
Girl, Wohl says the Girlfriend Getaway mar-
ket represents more than $200 million (about
4% of U.S. travel) and is growing in popular-
ity.
"Given today's economy, women are more
interested in vacations that allow them to
relax and rejuvenate versus trips that focus on
shopping and indulgence, which makes a
Girls Ranch Getaway a wonderful trip, espe-
cially for. urban dwellers," Wohl said.
For more information, visit
www.GirlsGetawayGuide.net.

Sweetbay supermarkets

bowl for MDA


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID -.
Sweetbay supermarkets and
the Muscular Dystrophy,
Association (MDA) are
teaming up for three Bowl-
a-Thons in the Sarasota
area throughout June. The
first bowl-a-thon in
Wauchula was Saturday,
followed by Bradenton on
Tuesday, and finally Lake
Placid on Saturday.
Royal Palm Bowling
Center will host the Lake
Placid Bowl-a-Thon.
Registration begins at 4:30
p.m. and the bowling
begins at 5:30 p.m. Teams
consisting of Sweetbay
supermarket employees and
members of the community
are asked to raise a mini-,
mum of $250. The 2009'
Wauchula B'owl-a-Thon
will have host 20-30 partic-
ipants all supporting MDA.
Sweetbay supermarkets
are also doing their part by
offering all of their cus-


tomers the opportunity to
participate. By purchasing
a $1 mobile, Sweetbay cus-
tomers are able to help
their grocer support MDA.
At each event, teams will
bowl while also competing
for raffle items and raising
money to send local chil-
dren to MDA's week long
summer camp, purchasing
and repairing medical
equipment, such as leg
braces and wheel chairs
and .providing medical
treatment with no cost to
families.
With the money raised
by each team and the pro-
ceeds from the in-store
mobiles Sweetbay and
MDA are hoping to raise
$9,000 at this event; a goal
that exceeds last year's
total.
MDA is a voluntary
health agency working to
defeat neuromuscular dis-
eases through programs of
worldwide research.

Spiritual Ambassadors inducted

at Florida Hospital Heartland


Special to the News-Sun
With a constant eye on' their mission to
extend the healing ministry of Christ, Florida
Hospital Heartland Division inducted 82
Spiritual Ambassadors that will minister to
the spiritual needs of patients, staff and visi-
tors.
"'rhis is a calling to reach out, touch hearts
and heal lives for those who enter our sanctu-
aries of healing," CEO/President Tim Cook
said.


This interdenominational program invited
staff members from various areas of the hos-
pital system and local pastors to represent
Christ by offering personal support, spiritual
growth and development of friendships.
"We're on a mission! Accept the challenge
to take the message of Christ and extend your
spiritual growth experience through friend-
ship," Assistant to the President for Missions
and Ministries Richard Barron said..


CEO: Government
pushed bank to buy
Merrill Lynch
WASHINGTON -
House lawmakers on
Thursday accused federal
regulators of a gross misuse
of power in orchestrating a
"shotgun wedding" between
Bank of America Corp. and
Merrill Lynch & Co. that
cost U.S. taxpayers $20 bil-
lion.
They also took aim at
Bank of America Chief
Executive Officer Kenneth
Lewis, questioning whether
he played dumb last fall as
Merrill's financial losses
mounted and threatened not
to go through with the
merger to squeeze money
from the government.
In his testimony, Lewis
said publicly for the first
time that his job was threat-
ened after he expressed sec-
ond thoughts about the
merger. Lewis said then-
Treasury Secretary Hank
Paulson and federal regula-
tors made clear that if the
bank reneged on its prom-
ise they would force his


ouster and that of board
members at the bank.

1st quarter wiped
out $1.3 trillion for
Americans
WASHINGTON -
American households lost
$1.33 trillion of their
wealth in the first three
months of the year as the
recession took a bite out of
stock portfolios and
dragged down home prices.
The Federal Reserve
reported Thursday that
household ne.t worth fell to
$50.38 trillion in the
January-March quarter, the
lowest level since the third
quarter of 2004. The first-
quarter figure marked a
decline of 2.6 percent, or
$1.33, trillion, from the
final quarter of 2008.
Net worth represents
total assets such as homes
and checking accounts,
minus liabilities like mort-
gages and credit card debt.
The damage to wealth in
the first quarter came from
the sinking stock market.
The value of Americans',


www.newssun.com


stock holdings dropped 5.8
percent from the final quar-
ter of last year.

Weak job market
may crimp
spending, slow
recovery
WASHINGTON The
number of people receiving
unemployment benefits has
set another record, a devel-
opment likely to weigh on
consumer spending and
slow the economy's recov-
ery.
While retail sales rose in
May, the increase resulted
largely from a spike in
gasoline prices and higher
auto sales, according to a
report from the Commerce
,Department. Overall, the
retail report Thursday
showed consumers remain
reluctant to spend, econo-
mists said.
The number of people
continuing to claim benefits
exceeded 6.8 million in the
week ending May 30, the
Labor Department said
Thursday. That was the
19th straight weekly record.

The cutting was a loving
gift
From one friend to another.
It started in a yard in
Hicksville,

And came across town to
mine.
When I married again, I
moved
And lost contact with my
friend,

But the lilac bush moved
with me
To upscale Huntington
Where it grew and pros-
pered with us.

When we retired and
moved to Florida,
We sold the house, but not
the lilac tree!

as his own,

tree.

And so
it moved.
again
To his,
nine-acre
spread
In the


next town, Centerport.


That was 19 years ago!
Greefi-thumb Matt made
cuttings
And grafted a white vari-
ety to the purple.

Looking better helps cancer patients feel better


For Nancy Lumb, one of the hardest parts
of having cancer was dealing with the appear-
ance-related side effects of treatment.
"I never cried when I was told I had breast
cancer or had to tell my mother and husband,"
says Lumb. "I only cried when I started to
lose my hair. Cancer has a way of robbing
you of your femininity."
Enhancing a woman's self-confidence.by,
giving her the support and tools she' needs to
manage her changing appearance during can-
cer treatment provides renewed hope It gives
her the strength.she needs to face her treat-
ment and recover) with greater confidence.
When women look better, they feel better.
A survey by Look Good,A Feel Better a
national public service program that helps
women cope with the appearance-related
changes of cancer treatment and Harris
Interactive found that 86 percent of women in


treatment credit looking better with feeling
better.
"Now wewant women to inspire others by
sharing their stories," says Louanne Roark,
executive director of Look Good,A Feel
Better. "We know our workshops have had a
tremendous impact on women around the
country, and we want to share those encour-
aging stories with other women."
The organization, which has helped
650,000 women since it began 20 years ago,
is launching a national search to find five
women who have been touched by cancer and
want to share their stories as a way to help'
others. These women will be honored as the
Women of Hope is Beautiful. -
Women affected by cancer can visit
www.lookgoodfeelbetter.org to- submit their
stories of hope, strength and determination.
The organization is encouraging entries -


such as essays, poems, pictures, or videos -
that share a personal story of coping with can-
cer and the impact of the Look Good,A Feel
Better program. The five women selected
will receive a trip to New York and a compli-
mentary makeover. They will also be hon-
ored at the organization's annual black-tie
gala.
As Lumb explains, "I discovered that I can
look as good as I did before I got sick, maybe
even better." To read more about her experi-
ence or share your own inspiring story, visit
www.lookgoodfeelbetter.org.
Look Good, AFeel Better is a collaboration
between the Personal Care Products Council
Foundation, the American Cancer Society and
the National Cosmetology Association., and
is dedicated to improving the lives of women,
men arid teens undergoing cancer treatment
by offering advice on how to cope.

Rain sensors make good conservation sense, so don't miss out on yours


All of us are going
through the challenge of
dealing with water restric-
tions. We know that we
can only water at certain
times of the week and only
for a given amount of time.
So we are all doing our
part to conserve our pre-
cious water, but I have
another suggestion rain New,
sensors for your irrigation '
system! Water
Why water when it's Corin
raining? A rain sensor is a
device designed to prevent an auto-
matic irrigation or sprinkler system
from turning on during and after a
rain storm. These devices are avail-
able in several designs, and are
generally wired to an irrigation
system controller, although wire-
less sensors are also on the market.
Rain sensors are simple, economi-
cal and useful tools for preventing
irrigation that would be wasteful.
Rain sensors are a great idea for
many reasons. They let your sprin-
klers run only when needed, which
conserves water, saves money and
protects lawns from, the effects of


s
rh
er
el


over watering. In addition,
they extend irrigation sys-
tem life by automatically
measuring precipitation
and keeping irrigation sys-
tems from watering in
rainy conditions.
Rain sensors override a
scheduled irrigation when
a water collection cup or
From sensor on the shutoff
1e device detects water.
*shed When the collected rain-
water has evaporated from
burgess the device, scheduled irri-
gations resume.
Let's go over some of the bene-
fits of rain sensors again:
Most importantly, they' save
water.
They save you money by
reducing your utility bills.'
They reduce the wear and
tear on your irrigation system,
because it only comes on when
needed,
They protect your lawn and
plants from over watering.
You can receive a free rain sen-
sor by attending the Rain
Barrel/Water Conservation work-


d-o






shop scheduled for June 19 at the
Agricultural Center from 1.0 a.m. to
12 p.m. Or you can purchase rain
sensors at your local hardware
store and they are relatively inex-
pensive. You will most likely make
up the expense within the first few
months by reducing your utility
bill costs, so these sensors are a
win-win solution for our water
conservation needs.
Listed below are some additional
ways to conserve water:
Check your irrigation system
regularly. One broken sprinkler
head could use up to 225 gallons
per 15-minute cycle.

There's always more than meets the eye, Gemini


Aries (March 21-April 20) Aries,
be part of the solution, not the problem
this week. A level head will do wonders
for keeping others' tempers in check.
Scorpio has a hand in the outcome.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) A com-
motion has a positive ending that you
simply didn't expect, Taurus. Use the
outcome to your advantage to sail
through the week with few problems.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) There's
always more than meets the eye,
Gemini. You just have to look 'beyond
the mundane to find out the special
secrets that aren't seen by many others.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) You
enjoy being a good listener for others,
Cancer, but sometimes you have to
express your own problems and find
their resolutions. A family concern
keeps you thinking.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Leo, open up'
to those around you and you'll see an
mintantaneous change in how the week
will progress. Money-issues keep you
wallet shut this week.
,,irgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) A trip is in
the future of someone close to you;
however, you will not be joining this


HOROSCOPES


person on the adventure. Expect that
this could be the catalyst for things in
your relationship, Virgo.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) It's hard to
focus when there are so many distrac-
tions, Libra, but that's just what you
have to try to do. Work.may be a bore
but you'll find a way to muddle through
this week.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) A bit of
unsettling news keeps your head cloudy
for several days. Later in the week you
will pull out of your slump and be back
to the Scorpio that others know and
love.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)
- Sagittarius, don't feel like others are
keeping information from you. Maybe
you just don't need to know all of the
facts just yet. Patience is a virtue you
need to acquire.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) Some
good news pushes you in all sorts of


directions, Capricorn. Why not invite
others along for the ride'? Big plans
quickly come to fruition in the next few
weeks.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) There
are a dozen different reasons for doing
something one way, but you have a head
for doing things the unexpected way,
Aquarius. The results are unexpected.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) A few
unanswered questions send you packing
on a trip, Pisces. The trouble is you
don't know where the destination might

Century plant lives

only 10 years


Courtesy photo
This century plant, growing in the Orangewood Acres com-
munity north of Avon Park, shows the flower spike begin-
ning to grow.


The flower spike begins to sprout its branches of leaves.


Succulents are any of a
number of plants that tend to
have thick, waxy and yes
"succulent" fleshy leaves.
While often associated with
desert environments, some
originated in areas of higher
rainfall. In any case, there are
a number of succulents that
will do well in this Florida
climate such as aloes, kalan-
choes, and agaves.
Agaves round out the most
common succulents grown in
this area. One of the most
common agaves is the centu-'
ry plant (agave americana).
With a tight rosette of
leaves up to six feet long and
10 inches wide, this is an
impressive plant. Most centu-
ry plants are blue-green in
color, but there is -also a yel-
low-striped variety available.
However, be warned that
there is a sharp spine at the
tip of each leaf that could
injure children, pets and curi-
ous gardeners. The spine is
often removed to protect peo-
ple and pets.
In addition to the large
plant size, in about 10 years
or so, the "century" plant will
produce at least a 20-foot
flower spike with terminal
panicles of pale yellow to
white blooms. The plant dies















These century plants in
Homestead show how beau-
tiful they are when grown in
pairs or bunches.


after blooming and then, of
all things, the whole plant
dies. As the plant dies, how-
ever, new plants develop at
the base.
The century plant is a
hardy survivor, tolerating
heat, drought, and salty sea-
side conditions. Its tight
rosette of blue-green, stiff,
sword-shaped leaves, makes
a dramatic statement in the
landscape.
It is much favored for use
in rock gardens. Locate it at
least six -feet away from
walks and other areas where
people could contact the
spiny foliage.
The.plant is typically used
in residences as a free-stand-
ing specimen, not planted in
mass. Due to its large size,
most residences only need
one of these.
Larger commercial land-
scapes have room for multi-
ple mass plantings, which
can create a dramatic impact.
The century plant is propa-
gated by detaching the well-
rooted suckers appearing at
the base, or by plantlets
formed on the flower spike.

Information provided by the
University of Florida Institute of
Food and Agriculture Sciences.


The flower spike's terminal panicles of pale yellow to white
blooms continues to grow.


At its maturity, the century plant looks like a small tree
with a cactus growing around its base. Despite its name, it'
takes only 10 years for the plant to mature. Once it blooms,
the plant will die.

HLT's 'Shakespeare in

Hollywood' makes for an

enjoyable evening


June 5 marked the opening
night of Highlands Little
Theatres' production of
"Shakespeare in Hollywood."
The local "am-dram" society
sparkled! Under Tammie
Pollard's able direction the pro-
duction came together to afford
an enjoyable evening for all
who attended. Ms. Pollard has
a keen sense of the timing for
comedy, particularly slapstick.
Danny Wilson's stage manage-
ment lent strongly to the
comedic pace of the produc-
tion.
The story is challengingly
convoluted, as anyone familiar
with Shakespeare's "A
Midsummer Night's Dream"
well knows. Add to that the
antics of trying to turn the play
into a movie with crazy
Hollywood types of the 1930's
as well as a couple of time
traveling fairies from the
Bard's fanciful play, and what
one gets is a mdlange of mis-
taken identities and magic lead-
ing to a great amount of fun.
Max Reinhardt, a noted play
producer of the era (actually he
had staged "A Midsummer
Night's Dream" at the
Hollywood Bowl prior to the
filming of the movie) asks Jack
Warner to film the movie.
Warner, hardly a connoisseur of
art, nixes the idea until his
nasal, Jersey-accented girl-
friend, Lydia, threatens with-
drawal of affections until she
gets a quality part. So he
agrees to Reinhardt's project t6i,
satisfy his girl friend.
Reinhardt casts the roles select-
ing among others Victor Jory to
plaN Oberon, the king of the
fairies and Mickey Rooney as
Puck. As the movie is about to
film Jory and Rooney become
incapacitated.

actors and begin to sow havoc
with the flower, "Love In
Idleness," that causes the
pollen infected to adore whoev-
er is first seen upon awakening.
The sort of chaotic possibilities
of all this could readily lead to
theatrical disaster but not in the
able hands of Tammie Pollard. ,
She, with-the help of her talent'-
ed and committed cast, created
sublime, coherent comedy.
With 14 identified cast mem-
bers as well as background
actors, in depth, individual
accolades though well deservedly
are not possible. Art Harriman
played Reinhardt to perfection.
Pete Pollard deserves special
mention for his mellifluous
Oberon. Trey Griffin's Puck
was impish and comically
intriguing. Elizabeth Parker
was wonderful as the self-cen-
tered Lydia. Wells-Grossman
rendered a spot on Louella
Parsons. The Lorandeau.broth-
ers played Dick Powell and
Daryl (Warner's go-fer and per-
haps Zanuck) with high come-
dy and stage presence. Mike
McMillian was entertaining as
Jack Warner. Alan Grossman
was excellent as the film cen-
sor, William Hayes. Sarah
Krenlich was engaging as the
yearning Olivia Darnell
(deHavilland?). Justin
Ackerman did a wonderful job
portraying Joe E. Brown's con-
fusion at being in drag to por-
tray Thisbe. Brad Dickerson
played a remarkable James
Cagney.
Everyone should see this ,
wonderful comedy.

Betty Near has been cross-stitching for more than 30 years.


Betty Near is Caladium

Cooperative's Artist of the Month


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Betty Near started cross-
stitching about 30 years ago. She loves creat-
ing cross-stitch. pictures and sometimes
stitches 12 to 16 hours a day.
"I can hardly wait to finish a project so I
can get started on another," she said.
She is very thankful for good eyesight
because she works on fine count material.
Near's cross-stitch pictures are works of
art, using many different shades of thread
instead of paint.
She received the People's Choice Award
for her caladium picture at the 2008 Caladium
Festival.
Near became a member of the Caladiumr
Co-op a year ago. She really enjoys it because
"everyone is so friendly" and since there is an


outlet for her work, "I can keep on creating."
Near, this month's Artist of the Month at
the Lake Placid Caladium Cooperative, was
born in Pentwater, Mich.
She married Fred and they resided in
Shelby, Mich. for more than 50 years.
During those years Betty enjoyed a career
as an X-ray technician. They also raised two
sons, Lee and Tom.
Lee resides in Orlando with his wife Tina,
and Tom, his wife Ann and their three chil-
dren reside in Elk Rapids, Mich. Fred passed
away in 2005.
Visit the Caladium Co-op at 132 E.
Interlake Blvd. in Lake Placid to see Near's
work.

SFCC's Artist and Matinee Series

experience a season of change


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK The com-
ing season of the South
Florida Community College
Artist and Matinee series
marks the beginning of a new
era in the performing arts at
SFCC. The college has
embarked on major renova-
tions to its auditorium that
are scheduled for completion
on Feb. 26, 2010. Because
SFCC is committed to bring-
ing the best of the performing
arts to Florida's Heartland
without interruption, per-
formances scheduled
December through February
will be held in the SFCC
Panther Gym.
"After a long period of dia-
log with The Restoration
Center, we were not able to
finalize our plans to hold per-
formances there," said Doug
Andrews, dean, SFCC
Cultural Programs. "What we
have finalized is to hold the
first five performances of the
Artist Series and the first six


performances of the Matinee
Series in the SFCC
Gymnasium. But, don't be
fooled by that location. We
are doing everything possible
to make sure the performanc-
es held there will look and
sound like anything but per-
formances held in a gym. We
believe this will allow us to
present a full season of top-
notch Artist anrd Matinee
series.performances with the
same quality that 'our patrons
are accustomed to."
Seating will accommodate
approximately 1,260 patrons,
and all seating will be on the
gym floor with new, comfort-
able chairs. Bleachers and
folding chairs will not be
used. Curtains will improve
the appearance and enhance
the acoustical properties of
the gym. In addition, profes-
sional lights and sound
equipment will be brought in
for the performances.
Season ticket holders will
also notice a change in the


way tickets are 'ordered this
year. "Because of the multi-
tude of challenges presented
to us for next season, the mail
out for season ticket purchas-
es has been delayed,"
Andrews said. "The time-
frame for the mail out is
dependent upon the location
in which the patron sat dur-
ing the 2008-09 season. The
first mailing for the Artist
Series will go out sometime
in July, and the process will
last through September.
Matinee Series mailings
begins in July and continue
through the end of August.
"Business is definitely not
as usual," Andrews said. "But
in the end, we believe that in
this season of transition, we
will be successful in continu-
ing to present outstanding
performances for our loyal
patrons."

how they work and what to look for in an irri-
gation system as well as understanding your
irrigation clock.
: Each attendee that has an irrigation system
will'receive a free rain sensor. It is important
to know what type of system (24 volt or
110/220) you have. There are two types of
rain sensors to be given away -one toi high


voltage and one I'oi 24 volts.
Ed Ayen. Master Gardener, will instruct on
how to construct a rain barrel. Nineteen bar-
rels are available -- attendees may construct
one on site for a $30 lee (to cover materials)
and take it home. If you want to take a rain
barrel home, call 402-6540 and register.
Rain barrels are a great way to collect some
of the water from the summer rains. Not only
does this give you free water, but it reduces
stormwater rIinoff.
This will be a hands on program designed
so even piiticipant (who registers) can bring
home the iain barrel they create during the
course.
The workshop is free and at the very least
attendees will walk away with a free rain sen-
sor, instructions on how to construct a rain
barrel, as well as irrigation and water conser-
vation lips Call 4(2-l65-45 if you have ques-
tionls.

The fluttering in
the chest as we see
our nation's colors
blowing in the
breeze express the
patriotism in our
hearts.
On June 14,
1777, Congress
adopted the Stars
and Stripes as the
national flag of the


op *

tice of those who
were compelled to
press on (including
the families) in the
face of horrific
odds; we as a
nation would not
be.
As they sought
God's guidance,
they came to know
the truth of Psalm


33:12, NIV, "Blessed is the
nation whose God is the
Lord."
At the Web site above is
an interesting story. As it
began to rain one day, a
young teen and his grandfa-
ther clashed over the care of
the flag. The grandfather
moved to take care of the
flag himself and turned to
his grandson and said, "You
don't understand what this
family has paid for the right
to fly that flag."
As we watched the cost to
John Adams and his family -
long separations, illness,
loneliness, discouragement
and sparse communication;
we can appreciate the com-
ment of his son, John
Quincy, who later became
President.
Like the grandfather
above, he knew firsthand the
depth of his comment,
"Posterity you will never
know how much it has cost
my generation to preserve
your freedom. I hope you
will make good use of it."
Today is Flag Day. Fly the
flag proudly. But, fly it with
understanding. Let's make
choices that will honor God
and country. Selah

United States.
The flag is a symbol we
both love and take for.grant-
ed.
At www.usflag.org,.I
learned how our flag's colors
didn't have particular mean-
P ing; but the Great Seal of the
United States did.
This Seal designed to
reflect the beliefs, values,
and sovereignty of the
founding fathers of the new
nation became a reality in
1782. White signified purity
and innocence; red equaled
hardiness and valour; and,
blue represented vigilance,
perseverance and justice.
Their compatibility with
the colors of our flag is
obvious.
The star symbolizes the
heavens and the divine goal
to which man has always
aspired. The stripes symbol-
ize the rays of light radiating
from the sun.
I Recently, a DVD on the
life of John Adams, founding
father and second president
.of the United States, humbly
reminded us of the intense
birth pains of this nation -
as real and daunting in the
debating and uniting the
" colony representatives as the
struggles on the battlefields.
Without the perseverance,
vigilance and sense of jus-
