SEBRING - Anyone
who has ever battled a life-
threatening illness knows
what an exhausting, painful
experience it is.
It is that much worse for
children, who face time in
the hospital and frightening
treatments.
One of the most impor-
tant ways for a child to
fight back is by keeping up
his or her spirits, and main-
taining a positive attitude
embed with hope.
One organization, per-
haps more than any other,
that helps children do just
that is the Make-A-Wish
Foundation.
Now that foundation


serves Highlands County.
They' are looking for ,
children to whom they may
grant a wish.
They also are looking'for
volunteers to help make
those wishes come true.
To be eligible a child
only has to be between 2
1/2 and 18 years old, diag-
nosed with a life-threaten-
ing medical condition, cur-
rently living in Highlands
County, and not have
received a wish previously
from any wish-granting
* organization.
Only a child's doctor can
.confirm his or her eligibili-
ty, but anyone, including
the child, can make the
referral.
There is no cost to the
family, and eligible children


Tag and registration

fees to increase

dramatically in Sept.
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.comn
SEBRING -Come Sept. 1, those .who
seek to renew the registration of their vehi-
cles will get sticker shock because fees
statewide were increased considerably by
the Florida Legislature.
In some cases, the fees doubled or tripled
when Governor Charlie Christ signed
Senate Bill 1778 into law on May 4.
"The state says it's a fee, but it's nothing
more than a tax," Highlands County Tax
Collector Charles L. Bryan said about the
drastic increases.
"This will cost every man, woman and
child in Highlands County $54.87 more per
year," Bryan said.
That adds up to be more than $5.6 mil-
lion in cash that will leave Highlands
County this coming year, according to
Bryan's staff. And that means less discre-

will receive their wish
regardless of race, religion
or socioeconomic status.
Non-verbal children with
life-threatening conditions
may also receive wishes.
Wishes are limited only
by a child's imagination.
They can wish to be some-
thing, meet someone, go
somewhere or have some-
thing.
The whole concept, for
example, began in 1980
when a 7-year-old boy with
leukemia wanted to be a
police officer. Officers from
the Arizona Department of
Public Safety granted his
wish with a custom-made
uniform, a helmet, a badge,
and a helicopter ride.

tionary income for those who shop, eat and
play in the county.
In a written statement to the News-Sun,
Bryan also stated that, "For years, state law-
makers have been finding clever ways to-
shift the cost of state services to local gov-
ernments, and then boasting about how they
have kept state taxes low. It has gotten so
bad that when local officials discuss

BARTOW - Judge
Michael Hunter entered the
Bartow - courtroom on
Monday morning and sen-
tenced Joshua Lee
Altersberger to death for the
killing of Florida Highway
Patrol Sgt. Nicholas Sottile
in front of a dozen of the fall-
en trooper's friends and fam-
ily.
On the other side of the
.room, mostly alone, was
Altersberger's mother,
Rosalie. Two other women
sat with her in an otherwise
empty section.
She sobbed quietly when
Hunter announced her son
would be put to death, and
Altersberger waived goodbye
to his mother as he was taken
away.
After pleading guilty on
March 13, just three days.
before his trial was scheduled
to start, a jury recommended
Altersberger for the death

Vote to suspend impact fees draws cheers


By .ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - After an hour of dis-
cussion, county commissioners voted
5-0 to suspend the impact fees for
Highlands County earning a standing
ovation from the audience.
County Engineer Ramone Gavarette
encouraged commissioners to go for-
ward with suspension of impact fees
for 12 months.
With letters from The School Board
of Highlands County and the City of
Sebring supporting the suspension,


'Just lift your hand from the pause button, and
let this community go forward.'

DIANA ALBRITTON
speaking to the County Commission


Gavarette also read a letter from Avon
Park, which said no, and Lake Placid
had no comment.
Carlson requested the refund of
impact fees, but Macbeth assured him
that the refund provision was only in
there in case the fee structure start


date was extended. /
Some time was spent on discussing
the definition of a workforcee housing
unit," clearing up some 'confusion
because a workforce housing unit can
now be classified by the income of the
owner.


Moderate income households and:
essential service workers, such as
police and fire, can get the impact fee
waived.
Activist John Drennen from Sebring:
encouraged the commissioners to only.
suspend the fees if builders would:
agree to using e-verify.
"I was against suspending these
impact fees unless the builders would
.agree to using e-verify. I am against
cutting impact fees for a year if

vote.
Reading from the sentenc-
ing order, Hunter said the two
proven aggravating circum-
stances, which would lead to
a defendant receiving the
death penalty, far outweighed
the mitigating circumstances.
"Either aggravating cir-
cumstance standing alone
would outweigh all. of the
mitigating circumstances,"
he said.
The 18-page sentencing
order detailed Hunter's deci-
sion, including listing two
statutory and 18 non-statuto-
ry mitigating circumstances
and how much weight he
considered to give to each
one, from Altersberger's age,
giving it "slight weight," to

Members of the Polk County Sheriff's Office take the finger-
prints of Joshua Lee Altersberger Monday morning in
Bartow after he was sentenced to death for the Jan. 12,
2007 murder of Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Nicholas
Sottile.

Carrying out of sentence will

have to wait for appeals


- By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.comn
BARTOW - Almost
immediately after Judge
Michael Hunter told Joshua
Altersberger he would be
sentenced to death Monday,
the appeals process had
begun.
Hunter told Altersberger
that he had 30 days to appeal
his sentence, but his attor-
neys had already put together
their first appeal.
"The first thing was that
he's going to move to with-
draw his guilty plea,"
Assistant State Attorney
Steve Houchin said. "This
will be the first thing we deal
with."
Houchin said it is not


uncommon for a defendant
who has pled. guilty to later
withdraw their plea, but
"generally they cannot show
good reason."
"It did not take me by sur-
prise ... not that I think it's a
good motion or will suc-
ceed," he said. "The natural
reaction is to want a do-over,
but that doesn't mean he's
entitled to it."
Before he plead guilty to
the 2007 murder of Florida
Highway Patrol Sgt.
Nicholas Sottile, Altersberger
went through a line of ques-
tioning that was prepared to
"make sure he knows what
he's doing."

Golfer struck by lighting on SpringLake course died Monday


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - A man who was
struck by lightning Thursday after-
noon at the Spring Lake Golf Resort
off of U.S. 98 has died, the resort's
general manager said.
Beth Spikes said he was part of a
large group of golfers from the West
Palm Beach area who come to the.
resort annually around this time of
year.
"There, was a little bit of confu-
sion," she said about earlier reports


out of Highlands County that the
man had died. "They kept him on
life support and at 5 a.m. this morn-
ing (Monday) they officially pro-
nounced his death."
Alain Hyppolite, a man in his
early to mid-30s, was on the 16th
hole of the golf course when, with
no warning, he was struck by light-
ning, Spikes said.
"As far as reports from witnesses
to me, he was standing near a tree
leaning on his golf club," she said.
"The lightning struck a tree, hit the


ground, and came up through his
club."
Hyppolite was airlifted to Tampa
General Hospital Friday before 8
a.m., said Steve Coltharp, director
of Highlands County Emergency
Medical Services.
He was kept in Highlands County
overnight due to inclement weather
and his unstable condition, Coltharp
said.
Spikes said the golfers were sur-
prised by the lightning because
skies appeared to-be clear.


"It had drizzled a little bit of rain
prior to that," she said. "There were
no threatening skies or storms in the
area. It was just a freak bolt of
lightning. The golfers, everybody
out there, couldn't believe it."
As far as she knew, Hyppolite
was unmarried and didn't have a
family. Spikes said he was an organ
donor and that might have been why
he was kept on life support over the
weekend.
Online queries for his name
resulted in finding a man who


worked in Information Technology:
for the Professional- Golfers'
Association, but whether it was the,
same man could not be confirmed.
The name was an identical match,
including the uncommon spelling of
the first name.
This is the first time someone at
the resort has died after being
struck by lightning, Spikes said.
"I understand there might have
been close calls in years past," she
said, "but nobody that was hospital-
ized."


Teenager

arrested

for armed

robbery
News-Sun staff report
AVON PARK - A 17-
year-old Sebring boy was
charged with two county of
robbery with a firearm
Monday in connection with a
deal to buy iPods that went
sour on June 11.
According to a Highlands
County Sheriff's Office
report, Joshua -Christopher
Oakley of Sebring met two
people at a home on Berwin
Avenue in Avon Park to swap
the five iPods for $300. The
meeting was supposed to be
at another location before
Oakley called at the last
minute and changed it, the
report said.
The victims told investiga-
tors that Oakley took them to
a screen porch at the back of
the home and got the money.
When he was asked where
the iPods were, he allegedly
replied that they were in his
backpack. When he bent
down to look into the back-
pack,.however, he came up
with a handgun instead, the
report said.
One of the victims asked
Oakley why he was doing
this, and he replied because
times were tough right now,
the report said. /
The two victims ran from
the home and reported the
incident to the HCSO.
Oakley was picked up on a
warrant after one of the vic-
tims identified him in a photo
lineup.

commons
Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - Lake Byrd
Shores, a new community- in
Avon Park, is embracing the
rich history of the lake on
which it was built. Its recre-
ation center will be dedicated
at ,10 a.m. today and named
for local resident Albert
"Bert"Lawrence and his wife
Amy, 'who gave their time
selflessly to Florida's youth at
a former church camp on the
site.
Lawrence Commons,
which will serve as a water-
front activity area for the
Lake Byrd Shores neighbor-
hood, hugs the tranquil banks
and includes a pavilion, picnic
tables,; canoes, a boat ramp
and a sandy swimming beach.
This gathering spot, near the
site of the old church camp
lodge, can be used by home-
owners of the new Lake Byrd
Shores community. I
Lawrence's ties to the pris-
tine lake trace back to 1960
when he first ran the church
camp there as the minister of
Christian Education for the
Florida conference of the
United Church of Christ.
During the 14 years he
worked at the Lake Byrd
camp, it was a thriving retreat
for more than 1,000 youth
annually from ages 10 to 18.
Tom Tworoger and his son,
David - who are developing
Lake Byrd Shores- both
attended the camp in their
childhoods. Tom Tworoger
married his wife Leslie there,

state's first


swine flu death


9-year-old

boy died in
Miami
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Florida
health officials confirmed
Tuesday morning that a 9-
year-old boy in Miami-
Dade County has died from
H1N1. swine flu.
State officials said that
no other information about
the victim is available at
this time as they reinforced
the need to stay vigilant
about precautions in the
workplace.
The laboratory confirma-
tion of the boy's death is
the first in the state for the
strain of swine flu, the
Florida Department of
Health said.
"Our hearts anid prayers
go out to the family and
friends of this child,"
Surgeon General Dr. Ana
Viamonte Ros said in a
news release from the
Florida Department of
Health.
"While mott cases of
HIN1 swine flu are mild,
there are exceptions like
this tragic case. Nationally,
the CDC is reporting 45
deaths . associated with
swine flu, and as the flu
progresses that number will
unfortunately rise. All of us
should.continue to be alert,
and stay home if sick,
cover your cough and
sneeze, and wash hands
frequently," Ros said.
State health officials said
Florida currently has 417
confirmed cases of the
swine flu virus, also known
as H1N1, while Highlands
County has had only one
confirmed case and no
deaths so far, according to


Leona Braithwait, an epi-
demiologist with the
Highlands County Health
Department.
"We get all the results;
positive or negative. I am
not sure that the actual
cases are public record, but
we have had only one case
come back positive so far,"
Braithwait said in respond-
ing to rumors that others,
including children, were'
being treated locally for the:
deadly flu.
"We treat all flu cases'
practically the same to start:
with, and then we alter:
treatment if results for:
HIN1 come back positive,"
Braithwait added.
"Nationally, the CDC is
reporting 45 deaths associ-
ated with swine flu, and as
the flu progresses that num-
ber will unfortunately rise.":
The state health depart-
ment has a surveillance sys-
tem involving physicians to
track the flu and also is
monitoring emergency
rooms cases and over-the-
counter drug sales. The;
department's four labs can
all test for the flu.
The World Health,
Organization has placed the
alert level for the flu at the
pandemic level, meaning it
has widespread global cir-
culation.
, Ros' provided these rec-
ommendations to help con-
trol the spread of the flu:
* Wash hands frequently
and avoid touching your
eyes, nose and mouth.
+ Avoid close contact
with people who are cough-
ing or otherwise appear ill.
* Stay home from work
or school if you have a res-
piratory illness.
* Anyone who thinks he
or she has influenza should
call their doctor.

We urge people who live in the

CRAs were created to funnel tax
dollars directly into the neighbor-
hoods from which the taxes were
collected.
Every year the boards determine
local problems and go about fixing
them.
CRAs have a broad latitude in
how they spend the money allotted
to them. Funds can be spent on
repairing sidewalks, supplying extra
policemen, maintaining parks, or
dispensing facade grants to individ-


once a month.
Instead of complaining or feeling
helpless, here is a chance to do

Avon Park has an unusual situa-
tion in that it has three advisory
boards, each responsible for a partic-
ular area: the airport, Main Street
and the Southside.
The city council sits as the actual
CRA; that is, the advisory boards
recommend and guide, the city
council makes the final decisions.
The only drawback to this system
is that too often the boards do not

three advisory ooards meet with tLhe
city council at least once a year for a
common workshop and exchange of

Once a permanent executive direc-
tor is in place - the search for one
is currently under way - we feel a
more organized and focused plan of
action can be created.
Avon Park is a lovely small city
with all kinds of potential. If it lacks
anything, it is dedicated citizen par-
ticipation. Sadly, city officials and
volunteers often work without an
audience.
Don't miss this opportunity to be a
part of something useful and hopeful
- democracy, thrives when people
make a difference.


TODAY'S LETTERS


New Democratic
committee chair named
Editor:
Highlands County Democrats, my
name is Cheyenne Motin and I've
been elected chairman of your
Democratic Executive Committee. I
write, today to let you know that
exciting things are happening with
your party.
Your Democratic Executive
Committee is working on implement-
ing plans that will make it easier for
you to get involved in being a part of
the community of the Democratic
party, beginning with smaller formats
for fundraising opportunities that are
less expensive to attend and eventual-
ly will be mdre frequent, to.accom-
modate everyone's busy life. Just a
couple examples of this are that we
have licensed ourselves through the
MPAA to be able to give public view-
ings of documentaries and movies
that we as a community might not be
able to find on the shelves of our
local video stores or on the screens of
our local movie houses. Also, we
have recently negotiated a buyout
show at The Highlands Little Theater;
everyone is invited to purchase tick-
ets thltough our Web site for the Nov.
17 production of "Fiddler Oh The
Roof," an, event that will benefit both
the Democratic Party and The
Highlands Little Theater.,
We on your Executive Committee
want all of you to get involved in
your party. We have created a Web
site, highlandsdemocrats.org, where
you can visit us for information and
updates. Leave us your e-mail
address or phone number and we'll be
happy to keep you updated on all our
events and happening. We're certain
that sooner or later one of our events
will catch your eye and peak your
interest. Again, that site is highlands-
democrats.org, we're looking for-
ward to a visit from all of you.
Cheyenne Morin
Highlands County Democratic
Executive Committee Chair

Several problems need to
be addressed
Editor:
I have several concerns regarding
our society and natural resources and
"art of living" to comment about in
one letter.
Water - this recent rain does not
alleviate our water shortage long-
term. We need to continue with
restrictions and careful use and pro-
mote natural means of increasing
supplies - protect wetlands and
watersheds, restrict development by
redoing abandoned buildings to pro-
vide apartments, condominiums, i.e.
? closed factories ??? and elsewhere.
Do not sell 12,000-acre cone ranch,
let it go back to natural Florida.
Support Gov. Crist's veto of the'
amendment by J.D. Alexander that
would leave development permits to
developers and director of water dis-
trict! R. Streeter of Temple Terrace
supports a moratorium on develop-
.ment until we can deal with our long-
term water problem. Amen.
Now to other topics: We should not
drill in the Atlantic or Gulf. Instead,
direct all of our resources to going
green.
All undocumented or illegal aliens
are criminals and need with their off-
spring to be deported. They may,
apply for citizenship legally or not at,
all. G. Stein Muller of Clay County
suggests a temporary work program
with a tamper-proof government
identification tag and temporary
housing, and medicine for workers
and leave their families "at home" -
it is temporary!
No school holiday on Good Friday
- how many of these families attend
services, Mass on Good Friday dur-
ing the day? There are services ?
Mass early out in the evening - we do
not need a "holiday," this is a Holy'
day.
Animals - why on earth is this
"Balm-based" circles allowed to hold
animals? Ramos has had several run-
ins with federal authorities over his
care of "his" animals. He should be in
prison and not allowed or even have


contact or else care for animals under
close supervision for the rest 'of his
life, Ned - the Asian elephant may
well have suffered from malnutrition
syndrome due to a lack of adequate
(quantity), nutritious diet under the
severe negligence of Lance Ramos!

Socialist ideology has
nothing to do with bailouts
Editor:
In a recent column, Dale O'Leary
rambles about Obama and socialism
and winds up nowhere. While it is
true that the government now owns a
large stake in several large compa-'
nies, this is a response to an econom-
ic crisis. It started under a Republican
president and certainly did not result
from socialist.ideology. I have criti-
cized the AIG bailout but it would be
foolish.to think that socialism had
anything to dowith it.
Bailouts and takeovers of some of
our most important companies that
art the result of decades of corporate
mergers, AIG, a trillion dollar compa-
ny, is the result of a series of mergers
that started in the late 1940s.
Republicans have always favored
mergers and Democrats have been
only slightly less favorable. Ronald
Reagan said that he was in favor of
any merger that made the company
stronger. Reagan didn't ask if the
consumers were better off with fewer
choices.
Companies do not become mega-
conglomerates by pleasing their cus-
tomers and growing slowly.
Corporate gigantism always seems to
be the result of companies defeating
the process of competition by merg-
ing. You might think that the more
successful companies buy the less
successful, but it doesn't always
work out that way. A cash poor corpo-
ration can buy a cash-rich corporation
with the cooperation of the banks. In
a merger-mad economy, pleasing the
big banks, not the consumers, is the
key to success.
When the size of a corporation
passes all reasonable bounds, it is


inevitable that bankruptcy would be a
national catastrophe, even an interna-
tional catastrophe. Economists and
politicians should have foreseen this
if they are capable of foreseeing any-
thing. Bailouts and government
takeovers are the result.
The auto industry is a special case
and the United States was well served
by this industry for a long time.
Nevertheless, for decades American
auto executives failed to faceup to
foreign competition. They also failed
to face the inevitable fact that deple-
tion of oil reserves would mean more
expensive gasoline. Fuel efficiency
and alternative technologies should
have been at the top of the agenda a
long time ago.
Takeovers and bailouts are the
result of policy failure and bad man-
agement but socialist ideology has
nothing to do with it.

Balancing

renewable

energy with

affordability

While


often
embraced
as the
answer to
America's
energy
crisis, the Guest
price tag
associated Column
with its William T
develop- Mulcay Jr.
ment -
and how reliably renewable
projects operate - often
leaves a lot to be desired.
Clearly, developing power
generation resources like
solar, wind, and biomass to
meet government renewable
energy mandates will impact
electric bills. The amount of
this increase may depend on
how closely Congress is will-
ing to work with electric
cooperatives and other sup-
pliers of electricity.
Electric co-ops are well
ahead of the curve when it
comes to investing in renew-
able resources. In fact, 11
percent of the power co-ops
deliver .nationwide comes
from renewables, compared
to 9 percent for the entire
utility industry. In years
ahead, co-ops will bring
much more renewable power
on-line.
Peace River Electric
Cooperative (PRECO),
Wauchula, is committed to
providing central Florida
'with affordable and reliable
power. in an environmentally
responsible fashion. And wel
want to work with Congress
to ensure that rates for elec-
tricity don't rise too much as
a result of any federal man-
dates' requiring utilities to
add a certain percentage of
"clean and green" power to
their generation mix.
Investments in renewable
energy must be made with the
impact on electric bills in
mind.
When it comes to meeting
our nation's energy chal-
lenges, not-for-profit, locally
owned and governed electric
co-ops are offering Congress
their experience on how to
make the right choices on
behalf of consumers. But we
need your help, regardless of
who provides you with
power: an electric coopera-
tive, an investor owned utili-
ty, or a municipality.
PRECO is endorsing the
"Our Energy, inOur
Future"(tm) grassroots cam-
paign to call on Congress to
keep electric consumers in
mind when drafting energy
legislation. Already, hun-
dreds of thousands of electric
consumers like you have. sent
more than 1.5 million mes-
sages to Congress, asking
lawmakers to focus on issues
related to generation capaci-
ty, .new technologies, and
keeping electric bills afford-
able when developing energy
and climate change policy.
If you haven't already
done so, please get involved
in the campaign by asking
your representatives on
Capitol Hill to ensure that
our nation has reliable power
at a price consumers can
afford.

dialogue with your elected
officials, visit PRECO's Web

Co-worker arrested in Virginia bus station shooting


By MATTHEW BARAKAT
Associated Press
WOODBRIDGE, Va. - A co-worker sus-
pected in the Monday morning shootings of a
bus driver and another man in the employee
lot of a northern Virginia bus station surren-
dered later in the day, authorities said.
Police said the suspect, Glen Kinard Wade,
and one of the victims, bus driver Darnell
McPherson, had a fight before shooting broke
out about 11 a.m. at the Potomac and
Raiaphannock Transportation Commission.
Details of their fight were not released and
:the slaying were still under investigation.
McPherson, 32, of Dale City and William
Anderson Jr., 34, of Wobdbridge were killed.
Both McPherson and the suspect were com-
mission employees, while Anderson was an
outside contractor.
; Police launched an extensive manhunt and
searched by helicopter for the shooter, who
escaped on foot. A handgun was found near


the shooting scene, as was a bullet-ridden
sport utility vehicle.
Wade, a 40-year-old from Woodbridge,
turned himself in to Prince William County
Police about 7:30 p.m. Monday. He is charged
with murder and was being held without
bond. A court hearing was set for Sept. 15.
Police said they didn't know if Wade had an
attorney.
The employee lot is located on the opposite
side of the building from where passengers
board buses, Christine Rodrigo, a spokes-
woman for the commission said. The building
also serves as the commission's headquarters.
The shooting caused heavy disruptions to
afternoon bus service provided by PRTC,
much of which serves commuters who ride
into Washington from Prince William County.
Police used dogs to individually search
dozens of buses for the suspect, which kept
them out of service for the afternoon rush
hour.

Bridging the generational gap


I .� . , . , I I Courtesy photo
Kenilworth Care & Rehabilitation Center has started its Intergenerational Program, which
bridges the gap between the young at heart and the young at age. This program provides
the residents and children opportunities in learning and creating an atmosphere of accept-
ance, all while bringing smiles to everyone's faces. Edna Butler, resident at Kenilworth
Care & Rehabilitation Center, said, 'This reminds me of when I was your age.' The program
usually begins with residents reading a story to the children and in return the children
would sing the residents a song. The children truly enjoy the relationships they build and,
of course, the big surprise, they receive cotton candy and punch. Jessica Ennis, 10, said, 'I
feel happy that I get to talk to them. I'm glad they are having a good time. Kids bring back
good memories.'


14 died in commuter bus fire in south Iraq


By MUHIEDDIN RASHAD
Associated Press
BAGHDAD (AP) - A
commuter bus traveling from
Baghdad to a southern city
caught fire Tuesday morning,
killing 14 passengers on
board, Iraqi officials said.
The blaze broke out near
the city of Kut, 100 nmiles-
(160 kilometers) southeastofr
the capital. Police said the
fire broke out in the engine at
the rear, then wind caused the
flames to fan through the rest
of the bus.
The head pf the regional
health department, Dr. Tahir
Ghanim Murad, ,confirmed
the death toll and said 30
other people were wounded.
Police officials said the driv-
er survived and was being


questioned.
Mohammed al-Zubaidi, a-
taxi driver, was driving in the
opposite direction of the bus
when he saw the fire.
"I saw. the bus driving on
fire and then it turned over,"
al-Zubaidi said. He added an
Iraqi police patrol was near-
by and responded to the
scene.
Though road accidents are
not uncommon in Iraq, where
the roads are poorly main-
tained, the bus fire accounted
for the largest loss of life in
recent days in a country
where insurgent attacks are
primarily responsible for
large body counts.
News of the bus fire came
the same day the U.S. mili-
tary said an American soldier


had been killed by a roadside
bomb southeast of Baghdad.
Violence in southern Iraq
has dramatically dropped off,
though insurgents continue to
target U.S. and Iraqi security
forces.
A Multi-National
Division-South soldier was
killed in an explosion
Tuesday near Samawah,
about 230 miles (370 kilome-
ters) southeast of Baghdad, a
military statement said.
The name of the soldier is
being withheld pending noti-
fication of next of kin.
The death raises to at least
4,314 members of the U.S.
military who have died in
Iraq since the war st rated in
March 2003, according to an
Associated Press count.

Local bikers hope


to help boost child


abuse awareness


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Sometimes
a tragedy has a way of
bringing a community clos-
er together to ensure that it
never happens again.
The death of Kaedyn
Short, also known as "Baby
K," a little girl allegedly
abused by Avon Park Police
Officer James H. Parker III
last March, is having that
effect, not only *in
Highlands County, but all
up and down the state.
Especially with bikers.
ABATE, American
Bikers Aimed Towards
Education, are usually the
folks who gather the toys at
Christmas time and make
sure children get presents.
.They spend the rest of
the year educating drivers
about biker safety and look-
ing into lobbying issues
with laws that effect their
'lifestyle.
The group decided, at the
request of Baby K's grand-
father John Short, that on
June 20, they would get
together and organize a run
to raise . funds for the
Children's Services
Foundation and to help
raise awareness about child
abuse.
But they are getting
response from as far away
as Alachua County and
Jacksonville,.that bikers are
coming out to ride for this-
worthy cause.
"We have no idea how
many are going to show up
for this run," said organizer
Vicki Tretter, who is part of
the Highlands County
ABATE Chapter.
"I have helped organize
many, many runs, but this
one is getting a lot of sup-
port," Tretter said.
The run. is planned to
start at 10 a.m. Saturday at
the Blue Crab on 825 N.
Ridgewood Drive in
Sebring, then meander.
throughout Highlands


'We are sending
a clear message
that child abuse
will not be
accepted in our
community.'

VICKI TRETTER
local ABATE member

County from there with five
stops along the way.
The last bike out is
scheduled for 11 a.m. that
morning, and the cost of
$10 covers, the .poker hand
and meal.
Last bike in is scheduled
for 5 p.m. at the Elks Club.
According to Tretter,
there will be a reception
from 8 p.m. until close at
The Mixx, which is just
next door to the Blue Crab,
and all the proceeds from
the run and the reception
will go towards supporting
the family and to Children
Services,
"We are sending a clear
message that child abuse
will not be accepted in our
community. If we can
encourage one person to
call, one person to report,
then we can possibly save a
life," Tretter said.
"People need to open
Their eyes to child abuse,
and not hesitate to call,
hopefully we can help edu-
cate the public to do just
that," she added.
By all indications,
according to Tretter, this
could be a large group rid-
ing for the cause, and she
hopes that all bikers every-
where will pitch in to help
educate the public.
"This is dear to my heart,
and to all bikers out there.
Come rain or shine, we are
going to ride," Tretter said.
Anyone wishing for more
information, or to donate to
Children Services, can con-
tact Trotter at 214-1983.


Lawrence to be honored today

and Lawrence, who Tom
calls a "second father,"
years later baptized their
grandson Kai.
Bert and Amy Lawrence
still reside on the lake.
"Naming Lawrence
'Commons at Lake -Byrd
Shores.after Bert is a tribute
to the many years of dedica-
tion and service he gave at
this site to the youth of
Florida," Tom Tworoger
said.
"He was so influential on
our lives and so many other
kids who came here. When
you think of Bert and Amy,


you think of that lodge, the
camp and all the memories
made there. We wanted a
way to always remember
that."
Because of their ties 'to
the lake and its past, the
Tworogers have made it a
priority to protect and main-
tain the area's character in
the building of Lake Byrd
Shores, which is surrounded
by orange groves and live
oak trees, on the pristine
spring-fed lake.
They also installed under-
ground utilities, new roads
and water and sewer, lines.

County to suspend


impact fees July 1 I

implement e-verify," Drennen
stated.
Mike Secore,, representing
the Highlands Home Builders
Association, stressed the need
to give suspension a chance.
"There are no impacts if
there are no permits and right
now there is no per-
mits so there is no 'If W(
impact fee," Secore wan
said.
"We are in an groIw
economic situation comM
like we have not
seen in our life- then,

restaurants and tai- impna
lors back to work.
Consider giving us CLIF

generate some ocal
activity in the con-
struction business,"
Secore asked-.
Attorney Clifford Rhodes,
on behalf of the Group for
Better Government, passed
out a letter stating that the
'organization he represented
was also asking for suspen-
sion of the fees.
"Highlands County thrives
from the growth of the retire-
ment community. A lot of us
serve that retirement commu-
nity. Yes, we are'an agricultur-
al community, but what floats
to the top is the service to the
retirement community that is
located here. Growth has
decreased over the last few
years, and I think the growth
of the community has come to
a halt. If we suspend the


impact fees, we may or may
not see a spark in the con-
struction industry, but we sim-
ply feel that it cannot hurt to
suspend the fees in this diffi-
cult time," Rhodes said.
"If we don't want to grow
this community, then fine.
One way to keep us from
growing is to impose, an
impact fee. I there-
e don't fore request that the
commission sus-
it to pend the fees,"

According to Bryan, the Highlands
County fees have not increased at all,
just those fees going to the state, and
Bryan indicates that it will mean about
$800 million into state coffers from the
counties.
Additionally, there is nothing taxpay-
ers can do at this stage to alter the.
increase, except look ahead if they can.
"Our goal is to let the people of.
Highlands County know that they will
save money by buying their tags and
licenses now and do it for two years,"
Bryan told the News-Sun on Monday.
The cost increases include transfer-
ring a title, which will more than double,

Diana Albritton lets county commissioners know that they
have their finger on the pause button for growth, and all
they have to do is lift the impact fees to un-pause construc-

for the county to lift impact fees for 12 months to help
kick-start the local economy during the meeting on
Tuesday.


encouraged the community to
step up after fees are suspend-
ed, because it will take every-
one working together to get
the growth ball rolling again
in Highlands County.
"I received several commu-
nications from constitutes,
mostly in e-mails and mostly
in favor of suspending the
impact fees. This will not fix
the problems that Highlands
County will face.
"It is up to the builders and
Realtors to. get it moving,"
Bates said.


Maxcy also weighed in on
the subject with his opinion
before the vote.
"These impact fees have
been a strangle hold on our
community. It was a mistake
to bring these on when we
did. We cannot guarantee that
this suspension will work, but
I have faith that it will. And
that will put food in people'p
mouths, and that is what I
have been about from the
beginning," Maxcy said.
Suspension of the impact
fees will begin on July 1.


'The state says it's a fee
but it's nothing more than
a tax.'

CHARLES L. BRYAN
tax collector

according to Tax Collector Office
Manager Carole Mott-Richie, from $30
to $75.
. First-time registration will increase
from $180 to $390 plus sales tax, and
the renewal fee for a mid-sized pick-up
or large sedan will go up from a little
more than $46 to $71.15.
Registrations may be renewed up to
90 days prior to your birth month, and
�Bryan says to "buy it now," and those


with birthdays June through September
can renew now to beat the increases.
Finally, Bryan restated that those
upset with the fee increases should con-
tact their legislator, not his office. There
is nothing the local tax collector can do
about the fees.
"House and Senate slid this through
prior to most of us having the knowl-
edge it was happening.
"Motorists will find these increased
fees painfully shocking," Bryan's state-
ment said.
Although Bryan's office does not
offer driver's licenses services, that
renewal fee will increase as well, from
$20 to $48.

Appeals

process

now starts

for state,

defense

Continued from page 1A
"There is a standard set of
questions a judge asks and
that was done," Houchin
said. "That's the whole idea
- to make sure people are
entering pleas because it's
truly what they want to do
and they understand the con-
sequences."
The appeal will be dealt
with in the coming months,
as Altersberger is appointed a
new attorney, motions are
filed and they have a hearing
on it.
Houchin has. already asked
a court reporter for a tran-
script from the date of the
guilty plea, but said there are
other avenues for appeal if
this one fails.
One of those is an automat-
ic appeal to the Florida
Supreme Court, which
reviews every death penalty
case.
"These things drag on for
years and years and things
you and I couldn't even think
of are brought up," Houchin
said when asked about any
other possible appeals. "But
those are the two immediate
things, and those will take
years."
In the appeal to the Florida
Supreme Court, the court will
review all transcripts from
the trial, from opening state-
ments and witness testimony
to the closing statements and
Hunter's 18-page sentencing
order.
"They are under no time
constraints to give a ruling,"
Houchin said. "It usually
takes a couple of years."

Trooper killer gets death penalty


Continued from page 1A
his dysfunctional family and
home environment, giving
that "moderate weight."
While the defense argued
that the murder was not com-
mitted in, a cold, calculated
and premeditated manner,
this aggravating circum-
stance was found by Hunter
to be proven, and he gave it
"great weight," detailing his
decision over four and a half
pages.
Hunter reviewed the tran-
scripts of witnesses Quentin
Kinder, who fled
Altersberger's vehicle during
the traffic stop, and Peron
Merise, a truck driver who
had "a clear view of what
happened." Hunter cited the
testimony while explaining
how the court came to its
decision.
Kinder testified that


Altersberger had told him he
was going to kill the trooper
before he did, and Merise tes-
tified that before he was shot,
hottile "backed up a little and
had.his hands up."
According to the law, the
cold, calculated and premedi-
tated , aggravator must be
proven by the state showing
that the murder was not
prompted by emotional fren-
zy, panic or a fit of rage, that
there was a careful plan or
prearranged design to com-
mit the murder, that there was
heightened premeditation,
and no pretext of, legal or
moral justification.
"There was no testimony
that the defendant had been
acting in an emotional frenzy,
panic or fit of rage," Hunter
wrote. "According to the wit-
ness, when it appeared the
trooper was comfortable, the
defendant lowered his hands,


produced a weapon, and shot
the trooper.",
He called the murder "an
unnecessary, execution-type
killing," and said it was "the
type of killing for which this
aggravating circumstance
was intended."
Citing the Florida
Supreme Court, Hunter said
the heightened premeditation
required to sustain the aggra-
vator is one where the defen-
dant has the opportunity to
leave the scene but, instead,
commits the murder. ,
"He could have attempted
to disarm the trooper when
the trooper took a step back
and raised his hands," Hunter
wrote. "Instead, he shot
him."
Altersberger will have 30
days to file his appeal but his
defense attorneys have
already told Hunter they
intend, to do so.


Thousands rally to

show support for

Iranian government


By ALI AKBAR DAREINI
and NASSER KARIMI
Associated Press Writers
TEHRAN, Iran -
Thousands of people wav-
ing Iranian flags and pic-
tures of , the country's
supreme leader massed
Tuesday at a rally organized
by the clerical regime in an
apparent attempt to reclaim
the streets hours'after saying
it would recount some dis-
puted presidential ballots.
Later, a "massive" crowd
supporting reformist chal-
lenger Mir Hossein Mousavi
gathered in Vanak Square to
the north, according to a
correspondent for state-con-
trolled English-language
Press TV.
The government barred
foreign media from cover-
ing rallies in Tehran - even
the state-organized demon-
stration, where government
officials urged the crowd
not to let the election divide
the nation and said the
unrest would not threaten
Iran's Islamic system.
The Press TV correspon-
- dent at the pro-reform rally
told the anchor by telephone
that a crowd she called
"huge" and "massive" was
carrying banners . of
Mousavi, wearing green
headbands and covering
their mouths in an apparent
defense against tear gas. She
said the crowd was march-
ing farther north, toward
Tajrish Square.
The report could not be
independently confirmed
due to the media restrictions
barring reporters for foreign
organizations from report-
ing outside their offices.
The clerical government
appears to be trying to


defuse popular anger and
quash unrest by announcing
the limited recount even as
it cracks down on foreign
media and shows its
.strength by calling support-
ers to the streets.
"This nation will protect
and defend its revolution in
any way," Gholam Ali
Haddad Adel, a prominent
'lawmaker and supporter of
President . Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad, said as the
crowd in Vali Asr Square
pumped-their fists in the air
and cheered in support,
images on state-run televi-
sion showed.
Iranian state media said
the government organized
the rally to demand punish-
ment for those who protest-
ed violently after a larger
demonstration Monday by
hundreds of thousands of
Mousavi supporters.
Mousavi has said he won
Friday's balloting and has
demanded the government
annul Ahmadinejad's victo-
ry and. conduct a new elec-
tion.
Supreme Leader
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei
said Monday the govern-
ment would conduct an
investigation into the elec-
tion. The move seemed
intended to calm protester
anger but was followed by a
rally of hundreds of thou-
sands of people that present-
ed one of the greatest chal-
lenges to Iran's government
since it took power in the
1979 Islamic Revolution.
In Washington, President
Barack Obama said the dis-
puted election revealed a
change in expectations
among .voters and perhaps
their leaders.

From that beginning the
Make-A-Wish Foundation
has grown into an organiza-
tion with 65 chapters and 33
affiliates across five conti-
nents.
In'going on 30 years it has
granted 175,000 wishes.
In its first year, 1983, the
Southern Chapter granted a
wish every 180 days. This
year its goal is to grant 546,
or one every 16 hours.
Tessa Shoemaker, who is
15 and will be a junior at
Sebring High School next
year, had her wish. granted
this May.
* Diagnosed with Systemic
Lupus Erythemotsus in the
fifth grade, she now battles
rheumatoid arthritis and
fibromyalgia as well. -
"It was like buy one and
get two free," Tessa said.
Lupus is a disease of the
immune system. Instead of
fighting the intruder illness,
her immune system attacks
her body instead, especially
her kidneys.
This leaves her prone to
illness, and she stays sick
longer when she becomes ill.
Her kidneys are at great risk.
But you'd never know this

humor and volunteers at

Her wish was simple - a
shopping spree.
Which is why,'on May 23,
she, her dad Jack
Shoemaker; her 14-year-old
sister, Emily; and her 11-
year-old brother, Ben, piled
into a white limo in the
pouring rain and headed
down to the Town Center
Mall in Boca Raton.
"It was a surprise," Tessa
said. "I knew it would hap-
pen, I just didn't know
when."
In fact, she'd been plan-
ning a day at the beach and

Instead, she put on a
sweat shirt, with a Make-A-
Wish T-shirt pulled over it,
.and off the four went, along
with her grandmother,
Brenda Shoemaker - her
mom, Kathy Shoemaker, had
to stay home to take care of
the dogs.
The trip had been careful-
ly planned well in advance
by two volunteers who han-
dled the details and kept the
day trouble free.
"They went completely
full out," said Jack
Shoemaker.
"It was so well planned
out, I didn't have to spend a
dime on fuel,'food or any-
thing."
Shoemaker said he was
given extra money to cover
the evening meal and break-
fast when the day turned into
an overnight affair. "Tell
parents they have nothing to
worry about," he said.
"Everything is planned and
paid for."
Tessa's brother and sister -
were each given $50 of their
own to spend.
"That's because it is criti-
cal for the siblings to be
involved in the wish," said
Richard Kelly, vice-president
and chief operating officer
for the Southern Florida
Chapter of the organization.
Tessa was still glowing
from her Cinderella day.
She couldn't say enough


about the people in the
stores where she went.
They knew in advance
what she wanted to buy and
had everything ready, in
many cases throwing in
extras for free.
The Sony store has her
digital camera battery
already charged and ready to
go, the Apple Store had her
software ready and installed
by the time she went home,
and the Hallmark Store had
the exact Vera Bradley bag
she wanted shipped in
overnight because it hadn't
been in stock, and then on
top of that, gave it to her as
an extra present at no
charge.
In all the foundation gave
her $2,375 to spefid, but she
came away with a lot more
thanks to the generosity of
the merchants and restau-
rants involved.
But, Tessa said, it was
more about how nice people
were, how out'of the way
they went, how special they
made her feel, than the actu-
al things.
Of course, beihg a teenag-
er, she couldn't help gig-
gling and showing off her
new knee high Converse
sneakers.

Tiger gets
FARMINGDALE, N.Y.

rivals are still sleeping, the
best player in the world
keeps getting better.
Not by the usual leaps
and bounds, the length of a
fairway, nor even a few
feet.
Today we're talking mil-
limeters.
Tiger Woods is standing
behind the practice green
in front of the clubhouse
early Monday at Bethpage
Black, lining up golf balls
tight against the collar of
rough surrounding'the put-
ting surface.
His tee time is still three
days off.
Woods has already
played nine holes, putted
for a half-hour and hit two
dozen chips out of the
thick stuff.
This last bit of practice
is to settle on what kind of
shot he wants to hit if one
of his approaches rolls off
a green and nestles up ,
against the 2-inch high col-
lar.
It's a scene only a golf
junkie could love.
Woods first tries, "blad-
ing" the shot - using the
leading edge of his wedge
to strike the ball and start
it rolling like a putt.
Then he tries a more
conventional chip, popping
the ball softly in the air.
As Woods realizes
there's a danger he might
hit the ball a second time,
even as it's taking off, he
modifies his swing, quick-
ly pulling the club back a
heartbeat after striking the
ball.

strength and dexterity few

possess. .
But the same guy who
can stop his driver dead in
the middle of his down-
swing - something' Woods
does on tee boxes when he
hears a hummingbird take
off two fairways over -
makes it look easy.
Hank Haney, Woods'
coach, watches nearby with
his arms crossed and a
quizzical smile.
Woods takes in Haney's
reaction and responds with
an embarrassed smile of
his own.
Then-he offers, almost
defensively, "It's like T.C.
Chen."
Nothing more has to be
said.
Chen was a Taiwanese
golfer who came out of
nowhere to grab the lead at
1985 U.S. Open.
At the fifth hole on the
final day, he tried to chip
from brutal greenside
rough, popped/the ball
straight up, then hit it a
second time when it was
thigh-high.

added to the two he'd
already wasted on that
fateful shot, leading to a

AVON PARK - The
Sebring American /All-Stars
sailed through, two days of
tournament to come out on
top in the District 8-AA
pitching machine play-offs,
defeating Okeechobee
American 15-7 at the Durrah
Martin Fields.


Sebring's second

Sunday morning gave

Sebring's bats again

innings of close play,
giving them the edge
to rally from behind
for the win.
"We're fortunate to have a


group of guys that really

American coach Eric Lewis
was quoted as saying.
"They all listen and learn

Blue Streak Basketball
Camp headed up by varsity
girls coach Mike Lee. The
camp, for boys and girls
aged 9-15, worked on fun-
damentals in all facets of the
game. "We're down in num-
bers a little this year," Lee
said. "But that, in a way,
gives me more of a chance
to work with the kids. There
is some talent out here and,
hopefully we'll be seeing
'them again in a few years."


PGA legend on "Sports Talk"

Former PGA Professional Fred Hawkins was a featured guest on Ed Lynch's "Sports Talk"
show June 13. Hawkins won two PGA tournaments and finished second 19 times between
1947-66. The 85-year old Sebring resident has played the PGA's Legends Tournament in
Savannah, GA the past several years. The "Sports Talk" show airs Saturday's immediately
following the Noon-News on WWIK-730 AM.


Next step or exception to the rule?


I guess it was inevitable.
As a sophomore in high
school, when you're on the
cover of Sports Illustrated,
things change.
And when that magazine
boasts of you as 'Baseball's
Chosen One,' and when
within the article your fam-
ily's idea of bypassing your
last two years of high
school to get yourself more
prepared when you're eligi-
ble to be drafted - well, the
idea doesn't have far to go
before it becomes the plan.
That is what occurred as
Bryce Harper and family
made the announcement the
other day that their idea
had become their plan.
Harper will get his GED
and begin playing on the
junior college level next
season.
Of course, some rabble-
rousers immediately came
out against the idea, that
this is taking away Harper's
childhood, sacrificing his
education and setting a bad
precedent.
The first two are debat-
able.


And Another,
Thing...
Dan Hoehne


From all accounts,
Harper's childhood has
been about baseball from
the age of three.
He loves the game, eats,
drinks and sleeps the game
- and he happens to be
freakishly good at it.
As for his education, if
he's able to get his GED
after two years of high
school, it would seem he's
a pretty bright kid.
And, after all, he's mov-
ing onto a higher level of
education at whichever jun-
ior college he opts to go to.
The last point, the bad .
precedent, is a valid one -


but that load isn't really
one that Harper or his fami-
ly should shoulder.
These teen phenoms
don't exactly happen all the
time, but there are plenty of
cases in point.
Professional tennis play-
ers often begin their careers
in'their teens, as do many
golfers.
NBA players, even with
commissioner David Stern
making one year of college,
or at least one year.
removed from high school,
mandatory, are getting mil-
lions before they turn 20.
Then again, for all the
Kevin Garnett's, LeBron
James' and Kobe Bryant's,
there were boatloads more
misguided kids who tried to
take that leap, only to find
that they, or whoever their
enablers were, grossly
overestimated their abili-
ties.
In baseball, especially,
kids are routinely drafted
right out of high school, as
we just saw last week.

Not a bad idea -


for Harper


Continued from 1B
Kids from other countries
don't even have to finish
high school to be drafted.
Because with baseball, it's
a long, winding and very
uncertain road to get to the
big leagues.
Harper wasn't being chal-
lenged enough to get that
much better at the high,
school level, so he's taking a
step up in competition to
better gauge, or to better
pave that road to the 'show.'
The worry, of some, is
that many other misguided


young baseball players, or
.their "baseball parents" will
see this as an option for their
self-perceived prot6g6.
But unless that kid can
throw it 96 miles an hour, or
go 12-for-12 in a tournament
with 11 home runs, or hit the
ball more than 500 feet -
then they're the ones setting
the bad precedent.

Woods always working on the 'new shot'


Continued from 1B
eventual second-place fin-
ish.
While T.C. actually stood
for Tze-Chung, he was
immortalized in golf lore as
"Two-Chip" Chen.
Woods' place in golf lore
is already secure, but it has-
n't dulled his competitive
edge.
Like nearly all the other
parts of his foundation,
Woods' desire was unveiled
as a kid and carefully nur-
tured by his father, Earl, a
former Green Beret who
died in 2006.
Earl was never one to
waste a teaching moment,
and during a phone conver-
sation almost a decade ago,
he recalled watching a Los
Angeles Lakers game with
his son:
"I used to tell Tiger, 'You
watch Magic next year and
he'll have at least one new
shot.' We would watch them
next year, and Tiger would
look for the shot Magic had
been working on all sum-
mer. And he's never forgot-


ten that."
Woods continues to
experiment with shots
nobody else on tour would
touch.
He's taken the "knock-
down" - typically a mid-
to short-iron shot that bores
through the wind - and .
adapted it for use with his
3-wood.
He's got one wedge shot
with a stiff-armed swing
that turns left upon landing,
another where he cuts
sharply across the ball to
make it go right.
All that's missing are turn
signals on his golf bag.
Every golfer tailors his
game to fit the course or the
weather they expect to
encounter that week.
But with the,exception
of Phil Mickelson, not one
has such a wide array of
shots, nor the imagination
to improvise something
new on the spot.
Woods developed those
.skills playing alongside his
father when he was young.


He wasn't strong enough
to hit his approach shots
over a hazard in the dis-
tance, so he learned to
carve out a path around
them instead.
He expanded that arsenal
under former coach Butch
Harmon, but since hooking
up with Haney in 2004, he's
delved even deeper into the
mechanics of the swing.
The results have been so
impressive the temptation to
expand it further continues
to this day.
Calling Woods a quick
study is almost redundant,
which may be why he's
usually the one to poke
holes in the idea.
After he finished prac-


tice, he turned to two
reporters standing nearby
and struck up a conversa-
tion that wound its way to
college athletes.
Woods told a few jokes
about his struggles with cal-
culus and physics during his
freshman year at Stanford,
then made fun of the notion
that everything comes easy
to him.
"Anybody who took a
class with me there should
send me a check," Woods
joked, "because I lowered
the curve in every one."

No. 83 RED BULL TOYOTA


After switching to Toyota, Brian Vickers has won three poles this season and says that feat is no easy task.


John Clark/ NASCAR This Week


M moving For ard



Brian Vickers hoping pole success translates into a Cup victory


By Monte Dutton
NASCAR This Week

BROOKLYN, Mich. - Brian
Vickers, who made a switch to Toyota
when the Japanese manufacturer en-
tered the Sprint Cup Series in 2007,
has yet to win a race but feels the
progress of Team Red Bull is evi-
denced by his success in qualifying.
Vickers, 25, won his third pole of the
season at Michigan International
Speedway, though he wound up finish-
ing ninth in the LifeLock 400.
"It always feels good to be the
fastest driver in this series on any giv-
en day," he said. "It's a challenge, to
say the least. This is the most competi-


tive racing series in the world, defi-
nitely here in the U.S.
"Sitting on the pole is no easy ac-
complishment. ... (The team) gave me
a great car."
We've been making gains since this
team was founded. There are times
when we've made huge gains and times
when the gains have been slow. There
have been times when we've taken a
few steps back, but for the most part
we've always taken more steps forward;
"We've come so far in such a short
amount of years, and hopefully, we
can keep going."
Vickers offered a staunch defense
of Toyota's rightful place in NASCAR.
"Personally, I didn't grow up in the
Detroit generation," he said. "I grew


up in a national and international
generation. To me, I see multi-na-
tional conglomerates that do busi-
ness all around the world and it's
very difficult to distinguish where
their headquarters really is. Proba-
bly the only person (who) can distin-
guish where any company's head-
quarters is these days is whoever is
-collecting taxes. I can assure you
that Uncle Sam knows where (Toy-
ota's) headquarters is.
"Toyota, in a lot of eyes and to me
with what I've learned about them,
they are as much of an American car
company as anyone. They have been
over the years, and the Toyota Camry
is the only car in the sport right now
that's built in the U.S."


q dg IBMI 5 3D


Biffle S Johnson

Greg Biffle
vs. Jimmie Johnson
They both ran out of gas in the fi-
nal two laps. Biffle felt Johnson
drove too hard when the LifeLock
400 seemed to have been a race be-
tween them. In other words, he was
accusing Johnson being ... human. A
racer. It's true that the Michigan race
fell Into Mark Martin's hands be-
cause Biffle and Johnson couldn't
contain themselves,
NASCAR This Week's Monte
Dutton gives his take: "This 'feud'
is really just an exercise in frustra-
tion. Would've. Could've. Should've."

Darlington fest about history
Darlington ,
(S.C.) Race-
way is host-
ing its annual L
'Historic Rac-
ing Festival on Sept. 26-27, and two
of the ancient track's legends will' be
on ha and to answer questions and
sign autographs. The track's all-time
leader in victories, David Pearson,
and five-time Southern 500 winner
Cale Yarborough will be on hand, as
well as former Lowe's Motor Speed-
way president and general manager
H.A. (Humpy) Wheeler. "Cale, David
and Humpy have all done so much
for our sport," said track president
Chris Browning. "Having them at the
second annual Darlington Historic
Racing Festival will be a real treat
for the fans and entrants at the
event."


Jimmie Johnson just trying to fill out his racing r6sum6


By Monte Dutton
NASCAR This Week

BROOKLYN, Mich. - Very
few Sprint Cup drivers have
won at every kind of track. The
NASCAR version of Renais-
sance men includes Tuny Stew-
art, Jeff Gordon, Kyle Busch,
Mark Martin. Kevin Harvick
and Bill Elliott
Jimmie Johnson has won the
past three championships, but
he's never won on a road
course, and his next chance is
next week in Sononma, Calif.:
"I feel very comfortable. I've
got a lot of laps Hopefully
we're going to be in good
shape. ... I think we're there. I


think we've found some things
that will really help."



Serious condition - The
reigning champion of the Camp-
ing World Truck Series, Johnny
Benson Jr., was hospitalized fol-
lowing a fiery crash in a Super-
modified race at Berlin Race-
way in Marne, Mich., on June
13. Benson lost his ride last
week and did not compete in the
Michigan 200 on Saturday.
On the second lap of the fea-
ture, Benson's car exploded after
tangling with a car driven by Lar-


ry Lehnert, who was uninjured.
Officials at nearby Spectrum
Hospital told a Michigan televi-
sion station that Benson was "ex-
pected to be just fine," though he
was listed in serious condition.



Storm clouds - Dale Earn-
hardt Jr.'s participation as an
owner - JR Motorsports is af-
filiated with Hendrick, his Cup
team - could obviously be af-
fected by General Motors' ap-
parent or impending withdrawal
from the Nationwide (as well as
Camping World Truck) Series.
"We've been pretty uncertain
about the future of that series


(Nationwide) for a long, long
time," he said. "Obviously, the
support that Chevy was able to
provide us was, in a lot of ways,
a. privilege only to a few teams.
Not everybody has had that sup-
port. You see a lot of the guys
(who) are getting to the race
track without that kind of manu-
facturer support, and to me, it
was always a feather in your cap
and never taken for granted.
"We'll be able to try to do some
unique programs with our spon-
sors and future partners to try to
cover that expense. I, personally
in no way feel like it's changing
my relationship or my perception
toward Chevrolet and how I'll
work with them in the future."


Good grief - Kyle Busch
said here that he has no prob-
lem with Earnhardt Jr., only
his fans. He, in fact, character-
ized the fans of the sport's
most popular driver as "crazy."
"My fans will handle them-
selves," said Earnhardt.
"They're good people. We've got
a lot of great fans that follow
this sport, and they're very loyal
to us and we need them more
now than ever right now, so I
think anyone who would be call-
ing them out and stirring them
up is causing problems not only
for himself but everyone else in
this sport."

SFCC Bridge Program receives donation

from the Sonni Family Foundation


. Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - South
Florida Community
College's Summer Bridge
Program recently received a
.$5,000 donation from the
Sonni Family Foundation.
The SFCC Summer Bridge
Program is for high school
students who are just below
college readiness and need an
extra step up to prepare for
college classes. During the
program, SFCC faculty
teaches classes that improve
reading,. writing, math, and
student success skills, such
as note-taking, active listen-
ing, and test-taking. The
donation will help supple-


ment faculty salaries and pur-
chase books and supplies
needed for the Highlands
Campus program.
"Many of the children who
will use this program have
been my patients," said Dr.
Raji Sonni, Avon Park
Pediatrics. "My husband and
I want these children to com-
plete their education and be a
service to our medical comr-
munity. Our daughter also,
received her associate in arts
degree at SFCC, so we know
the quality of education
SFCC provides."
"I am very grateful to the
Sonni family for their gener-
ous contribution," said


Kimberly Batty-Herbert,
dean, Arts and Sciences.
"Educational budgets are
extremely tight this year
making projects such as the
Summer Bridge Program
nearly impossible to sustain
without private support.. Dr.
Sonni's generosity will
ensure that students in
Highlands will receive the
supplemental instruction they
need to succeed, perpetually
impacting these students and
our communities."
The Summer Bridge
Program runs June 22-July
30. For more information

HEALTH & NUTRITION


Many medicines spark nasty sunburns


Dear Pharmacist:
SI just started taking
'"doxycycline" for
acne. The prescrip-
tion .label says to d
"avoid prolonged
exposure to sunlight"
and the guys in my
apartment are razzing
me because I won't
play tennis with them D
anymore. My room piP
mate says he took Phar
doxycycline before Suzy
going on a cruise and
nothing happened to him. He.
bet me $100 to go outside for
an hour, to show me that I
won't get a sunburn reaction.
Should I? -CN, Gainesville
Answer: Don't take the
bet because if you lose, you
lose big time. Only you, not
your room mate, run the risk
of turning into a blistering
red-faced Gator.
Photosensitivity is a fairly
common skin reaction that is
sparked by taking medicine
that interacts with the ultravi-
olet (UV) radiation from the
sun or tanning beds. It hap-


opened to me, lucki-
ly just on the top of
my hands and I can
tell you the burn-
L ing pain of it, and'
associated pins and
needles sensation
rendered me out of
writing commis-
sion for two days.

mlacis .reactions are very
macistl unpredictable.

severe ' sunburns
and brown splotches in their
skin, some get. redness,. ten-
derness, a rash, hives, or
other types of inflammation
(such as swelling or general-
ized pain), while others, like
your goading buddy, experi-
ence no reaction whatsoever.
Some skin reactions are per-

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - A third ship-

,from Florida Hospital

effort, put together with
;hard work from Florida

The $97,000 donation -
:which includes anesthesia

'exam beds and chairs,
:endoscopy carts, oxygen

vvarmers, refrigerators, and
'multiple pallets of medical

,also includes three new
bicycles for their security
to patrol the hospital


grounds.
As FHHD upgrades and
replaces equipment, the-
original, still-viable equip-
ment makes its way to this
third-world country to con-
tinue service. "Florida
Hospital Heartland
Division is a sanctuary of
healing," Chaplain Juan
Colon said. "We want to
share our blessings with
others who are less fortu-
nate."
The fully loaded semi
truck should arrive late
nthis week and be a Wel-
comed addition to the
southern medical facility.
"Florida Hospital

blessed to be a sanctuary of
healing with modern equip-
ment," Chaplain Bey
Gonzalez said. "We' want to-
share our blessings with

nate."


other offender drugs, here are
some relatively common
ones:
. Antibiotics: Sulfa
drugs, tetracycline, doxycy-
cline, ciprofloxacin and

furosemide
* Anti-inflammatory
(NSAID) drugs: Ibuprofen,
naproxen and prescribed


agents
If you are taking a medica-
tion that causes photosensi-
tivity, please plan ahead by
using sunscreen and wide-
brimmed hats as well as
clothing that covers you up
well. If you happen to get a
mild reaction, and it's a small
area, try applying aloe right
from the plant. You can also
rub pure essential oil of
lavender on it. This almost
instantly relieves the pain
and speeds healing. Make a
cool compress with a few
drops of lavender oil in it, or
a compress with baking soda
to help take the sting out of
the burn. You can bathe in
oatmeal (Aveeno bath pack-
ets) or apply a pain-relieving
spray like Solarcaine or
Dermoplast.

Cooking with fresh rose-
mary herb could very well

SHS pool offers new

fitness program


By JAZMIN CUENCAS
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - "Water aero-
bics is a great low impact
form of exercise, that will
really prep you for your sum-
mer wardrobe," said Sebring
High School lifeguard and
water safety instructor Ricki
Albritton..
The Sebring High School
pool will offer water aerobics
for the first time in its more
than 30 years of service.
It has been approximately
five years since the introduc-
tion of the Sno-Kone
machine to afternoon open
swim, something that has
become a hit with daycares,
children and parents.
Since then the SHS sum-
mer swim program has
strived to tweak its program
each year trying to make it as
affordable, convenient and
fun for the community as
possible.
Albritton will head the
aerobics classes, which begin
Monday during afternoon
swim hours.
Albritton approached Pat
Caton, pool director, early in
the summer with ideas about
how to offer new and fresh'
services for the Sebring com-
munity. Caton and the rest of
the SHS lifeguard staff
agreed that the addition
would be great.
"It is time for us to catch
up and offer new programs
with the same reliable .and
.affordable service that we
have offered for over 30
years," Caton said.
In addition to, water aero-
bics, the pool will open from
6 a.m. to 8 a.m., also begin-
ning Monday, for local lap
swimmers and tri-athletes.

Former SHS swim team
members, 2A state champi-
ons, and swim team coaches
make up the staff of life-
guards and instructors that
will be on hand with workout
plans,, technique drills and
endurance tips for swimmers.
"This is such an exciting
opportunity for our staff to
utilize all of its training and
for our community to take
advantage of it," said Rich
Bozeman, SHS lifeguard and
assistant swim coach.,
Summer Swim Passes are
honored during morning
swim hours and are charged
$1 for afternoon aerobics.
Those without passes will be
charged regular pool admis-
sion of $2 for both aerobics
and morning, lap swim hours.


Avoid a flip-flop fiasco


As Florida temperatures
and humidity continue to
rise many will people will
stay cool by slipping on a
pair of their favorite
footwear - flip-flops -
before venturing outside.
Unfortunately, many barbe-
cues, pool parties, visits to
theme parks and other
enjoyable outdoor activities
are also accompanied by
painful foot ailments attrib-
uted to flip-flop wear,
including cuts and abra-
sions, 'broken toes and
painful sprains.
"Many flip-flops that are
widely available for pur-
chase can be very unsafe
for feet," said Dr. Ronald
Jensen, president of the
American Podiatric Medi-
cal Association (APMA).
"When choosing a flip-flop
to wear, wearers should pay
special attention to impor-
tant features, such as soft
leather construction and
adequate arch and heel sup-
port, to avoid serious injury
'during warm weather activ-
ities."
If experiencing any foot
pain, one should always
consult with a podiatrist.
Avoid falling victim to a
"flip-flop fiasco" this sum-
mer by following 10 essen-
tial tips:

Do's:
* Do shop for a flip-flop
made of high-quality, soft
leather. Leather minimizes
the potential for blisters
and other types of irritation.
* Do look for flip-flops
that hold APMA's Seal of
Acceptance, such as Sole
Platinum Sandals.
Evaluated by a committee
of APMA podiatrists, these
products are shown to allow
for the most normal foot
function and promote quali-
ty health.
* Do shop for a flip-flop
made of high-quality, soft
leather. Leather minimizes
the potential for blisters
and other types of irritation


Footprints
Dr O/ga Luepschen
* Do gently bend the
flip-flop from end to end,
ensuring it bends at the ball
of the foot. Shoes of any
kind should never fold in
half.
* Do wear a sturdy pair
of flip-flops when walking
around a public pool, at the
beach, in hotel rooms and
in locker room areas.
Walking barefoot can
expose foot soles to plantar
warts and athlete's foot.
* Do ensure that your
foot doesn't hang off of the
edge of the flip-flop.

Don't:
* Don't re-wear flip-
flops year after year.
Inspect older pairs for wear.
If they show signs of severe
.wear, discard them.
* Don't ignore irritation
between toes, where the toe
thong fits. This can lead to
blisters and possible infec-
tions.
* Don't wear flip-flops
while walking long dis-
tances. Even the sturdiest
flip-flops offer little in
terms of shock absorption
and arch support.
* Don't do yard work
while wearing flip-flops.
Always wear a shoe that
fully protects feet when
doing outside activities
such as mowing the lawn or
using a weed-eater.
* Don't play sports or
weight train in flip-flops.
This practice can lead to
twisting of the foot or
ankle, as well as sprains
and breaks.
Additionally, do remem-
ber sunscreen for the foot-
sies. Enjoy the Florida sum-
mer with good foot care.

Time-saving tips for new moms on-the-go


Between naps, feedings and diaper
changes - new moms rarely have a
moment free. Pulling it all together doesn't
have to be overwhelming. Making some
simple changes in your daily routine can
mean extra time for enjoying your new
baby.
"I always tell my friends that the key to
spending, more time with their new baby is
to simplify their day," says Victoria
Pericon, editor of SavvyMommy.com and
mother of three. "Try to combine errands
into fewer trips and reduce the number of
activities you're involved in. That way, you
can spend more time with your loved ones
and make more time for yourself."
Pericon shares some of her favorite time-
saving tips that are sure to help new moms
protect the precious time they have with
their new baby:
* Get organized: Caring for a new baby
and keeping up with household and family
activities is a challenge. The easiest way to
stay on track with managing household


chores and outside activities is to make a
schedule. Buy a large wall calendar to
organize your family's play dates, practices,
weekly errands and social events so every-
one has a clear picture of what the week
holds. Color code activities by family mem-
ber.
* Go digital: Cutting and pasting your
baby photos into an album is a thing of the
past. Not only is this time-consuming but
it's also costly. Why not create your baby
book online instead of doing it all,yourself?
Photo sharing sites such as Shutterfly.com
let you customize your baby book according
to your own preferences. Also, you can
share pictures of your new little one with
friends aiid family in no time flat.
* Simplify feeding: Breast milk is the
ideal nutrition as it provides all the nutrients
a young infant needs, and it also helps build
the baby's immunity. For moms who choose
to feed with formula, it's important to
choose one that provides both nutrition and
convenience.

Recreation Club

SEBRING - Thursday,
June 4 finds the summer
league tournament in Avon
Park. Your Sebring club was
well represented by the win-
ning players - Wally Davis,
Clarence Wright, John
Bushee and Ruth Parker.
These winners were from the
club but not many players
.from Sebring made it to this
tournament. Are we Sebring
shufflers getting old?
Zumba is still the best
party in town. Wanted:
People for Zumba, male or
female, come check.us out.
The Zumba club members are
still the youngest club mem-
bers; We had a shuffler, line
dancer try Zumba and she
said that it was a lot of fun,
but she thought it was for
younger people than she was.
She found some muscles thatt
she was not aware of before
Zumba. Club members have
activities of the club open to
them, such as line dancers
can try Zumba. Zumba mem-
bers are wanted for shuffle-
board, also ping-pong.
s Lake Placid is well repre-
sented at line dancing on
Wednesday evening. Bonnie
Loomis, Maria Sheehan and
now Scott and Terry Daisy
find their way up Wednesday
evening. The number of line
dancers seems to be a little
larger ,this year than a year

floor is .not the least bit
crowded and you are wanted,
male or female. Come and
meet us and at least listen to
the music, see if you like
what you hear and what you
see. If you dance some place
else on another night or after-
noon, we do not hold that
against you and would love
to have you dance with us
also. Our group may even be
more fun for you and give
you a chance to meet new
people.
Ice cream shuffle finds
Nancy Brockelbank, Winnie
Wells, Betty Razor for the
ladies. George Brockelbank,
Ernie Kelley, Bill Gorsuch,
John Bushee, Ed Straub,
"Rich" Elleson and Tom
Bruha had to support us all.
Ask "Rich" about six games
in a row? I overheard him tell
Nancy that he had her just
where he wanted twice this
evening. A little wet for some
getting to our cars; many had
umbrellas with them.
Enlist the help of active
friends or family. Exercising
is a great way to socialize
and it makes it more fun to do
it together. Doing it as a fami
ily unit would be very
encouraging. Church groups
should look into shuffle-
board. This is a sport that
requires thinking as well as
shooting.
Saturday evening for pin

Plan the perfect summer soiree


Summer is the perfect time to journey out-_
doors and mingle with family and friends.
However, the stress of hosting summer get-
togethers can sometimes be discouraging.
This year, avoid a meltdown and make your
next barbecue or block party a, breeze by
keeping in mind the following party prepara-
tion tips:
1. Some barbecue fanatics spend days mar-,
inating their, brisket before a barbecue. Who
has time to make a potato salad on top of
that? Provide the main course, and ask each
guest to bring their favorite side dish with
them. You'll get a great variety of dishes, and
pven your pickier guests will be guaranteed
to find one item they will love.
2. Keep your outdoor decor simple and
unfussy. Tea light candles provide instant
glamour to any evening party, and are
extremely versatile design elements. Some
varieties float and can be placed in the pool,
while others are perfect for luminaria. To
make your own, fill simple white or brown
paper bags with enough sand to keep them
from overturning in the wind and place one
tea candle inside. These can be lovely when
used to line a deck or walkway. And for those
who are concerned about keeping pesky bugs
at bay: Look for candles that include citronel-
la oil, an effective ingredient that naturally
repels insects.
3. Set up a few outdoor games to keep your
guests entertained. Games like "Capture the
Flag," bean bag toss and Frisbee require very

4. No one likes to rush around looking for
matching bowls and lids when it's time for
guests to take leftovers home. Inexpensive
wax-lined paper cartons (bought at craft
stores) allow guests to transport food home
without the hassle of returning your expen-
sive food storage containers afterward --
something everyone will appreciate. If you
have extra time before the party starts, these
containers can also be customized by adding
each guest's name and the date of your party,

dirt are some of the toughest, to remove, and
they are all, unfortunately, par for the course
at outdoor gatherings: Luckily, hqsts an4
hostesses can turn to an expert this summer
for stain advice: Clorox's Summer Stail
Hotline (877) STAIN-411, hosted by staii
scientist Harold Baker (a.k.a. "Dr. Laundry")',
will be available 24/7 throughout the season
Consumers simply dial up the hotline, choose
from a selection of the season's toughest stai4
dilemmas, and are guided through the proper
course of treatment. Or, consumers can subro
mit stain questions to Dr. Laundry directly by
visiting his online blog, 'www.drlaundry.
blog.com. So once the party's over, "dial up"
the heat against stains, and get to planning
your next summer soiree., ,

LAKE PLACID - June 6
we had 47 residents come
out to enjoy the pancake
breakfast. The men who
prepare and serve the break-
fast do a great job. Monday
morning we attended the
coed coffee. Wil and Carol
Noel made the coffee and a
variety of blueberry, Banana
and cinnamon breads. We
,sure are spoiled by all the
Kindness our hostesses have
been donating.
Our emcee was Luetta
Kiger, who began by intro-
ducing Park Manager
George Susco. George told
the residents he had sad
news to tell us and that Dale
Hogue, one of our workers
in the park who had a mas-
sive heart attack last week,
'passed away at St. Joseph's
hospital this morning. He
understands that arrange-
ments for his memorial will
be held at the American
Legion in Sebring sometime
this week. As soon as he has
the time and date, he will
see that it is placed on the
.bulletin board for those who
wish to attend.
, He turned the program


back over to Luetta, who
asked Carol Noel for a
Sunshine report. Carol told
the group that she has 10
sheets for all to sign. Alice
Harold's brother, Kenneth.
Smallwood, passed away.
Barbara Convard's mother,
Jane Blotney, passed away,
and Grace Wallace, mother
of Grace Becker, passed
away. Our hearts and
prayers go out to each of
them. Others on our sick list
are Keith Clouston, Gale
Crossman, Alice Plate,
Jessie Spray, Helen Stodard,
Phyllis Williams, please
keep them in your prayers
for a quick recovery.
Luetta then read the
names of individuals who
are celebrating their birth-
days the week of June 8-16.
Although we had 17 names,
we had no one present at
this time. Virginia Tharp,
our pianist, played so we
could sing Happy
Anniversary to Maury and
Clare Bloch and Evelyn and
Don Guiney.
Our Ladies lunch was
June 16 at the Blue Crab
Restaurant in Sebring. Wil
Noel announced the
Mustang's, the men's day
out, would be at Jaxson's in
Lake Placid starting at
11:30 a.m. Marilyn Cromer
told the group that since we
had no committee for the
month of June, we will not
have a carry-in dinner the
last Thursday of the month.
However, we are planning a
Fourth of July picnic-type
party. The cost will be $3
and we will serve fried
chicken. Bring dishes to
pass. We are also planning a
decorated golf cart parade if
we can get some volunteers
to take charge of it. Luetta
ended the program by
telling a cute joke for every-
one to enjoy.


Tuesday morning, Ladies
coffee, we had 14 ladies
present. Marilyn Cromer
was the spokeswoman and
Carol Noel made the coffee.
Carol read the list of names
of three persons who have
lost a loved one and seven
people who have been in the
hospital and are recuperat-
ing. She had 10 sheets on
the table for all to sign.
Marilyn then read the names
of residents celebrating
their birthdays or anniver-
sary. We all sang Happy
Anniversary to Barbara
Meyer to be extended to her
husband Ed as well. Marilyn
went on to tell the ladies
about the Fourth of July pic-
nic which will take the
place of the carry-in dinner
usually held the last
Thursday in June, but since
we had no June committee,
the Fourth of July special
event will take its place. We
hope to have a patriotic golf
cart parade. We hope some-
one will volunteer to take
charge of this. The dinner
will cost, $3 and we plan to
have fried chicken.
Residents are to bring a
covered dish to go with this
picnic-type food, also your
own table service.
Donna Fry will play some
patriotic songs and we
would like to have some
singers get together. She
will meet them on
Wednesday to practice. The
meeting ended early
because the ladies had to get
ready for the Salad Bar
Luncheon which was held
today at noon. We had 25
residents attend.

Wedding insurance gets

another look in tough times


By LISA A. FLAM
Associated Press
NEW YORK -
Fantasies of the perfect
wedding never included
banquet halls going bust or
lovebirds losing their jobs.
But a calamity can sneak
up on you while you're
consumed with creating
your dream day, especially
during a recession.
-. For couples who plan
ahead, there is a safeguard.
Wedding insurance can
cover costs when the
unimaginable happens -
the power goes out or the
groom falls ill - -and the
party is over before it even
began.
In the second year of this
recession, more weddings
are being protected by
insurance, several insurers
said.
"The economy is driving
the sales because of the
potential for job loss and
the potential for vendors
going out of business," said
Rob' Nuccio, program
administrator for Fireman's
Fund Insurance Company,
who said policy sales are up
about 20 percent this year.
"With wedding insurance,
you can get that money
back and keep going."
And as the financial mar-
'kets, have fallen like so
many rose petals, there are
about twice as many wed-
ding insurance claims as
there were two years ago,
he said.
"They're way up over
last year because of the
economy," said Nuccio.
"Two years ago we didn't
see it. Now we're seeing
it."
One claim came from
mother-of-the-bride Carol
Carrier, who bought a poli-
cy from Travelers last year
as she helped plan hel
daughter's, nuptials in
Hartford, Conn. Six months
before the Columbus Day
weekend event, she learned
that their venue, a restau-
rant with a banquet hall,
had abruptly closed. The
owner disappeared, along
with Carrier's $2,000
deposit.
She and her husband
scrambled to find another
location. They. signed a
contract with the new
owner of their original
venue, but the .original
deposit was not honored.
"That's not a small
amount of money to just
throw away," said Carrier,
of North Granby,. Conn.
"Considering the stock
market's behavior of late,
$2,000 is a significant
loss."
Carrier, who paid for the
$25,000 wedding, had spent
nearly $300 on the policy,
which paid her back the
deposit.
"The premium was pretty
small compared to the cost
of the wedding," Carrier
said. "We felt it was proba-
bly: a good safety net."
Nuccio, who has sold the
insurance through RV
Nuccio' & Associates for
Fireman's Fund since the
early 1990s, says many
claims these days are


because of job loss (if the
policy owner qualifies for
unemployment insurance),
loss of deposits (if a vendor
or location goes out of
business), photography
coverage (if pictures are
lost or damaged), and
brides and grooms chang-
ing their minds about tying
the knot.
The Fireman's policy
offers "change of heart"
coverage in cases where the
bride or groom calls off the
wedding more than six
months beforehand and
someone else, like a parent,
is paying for it.
Another company,
WedSafe, backed by Aon,
says policy sales are up 50
percent this year, in part
because of the economy.
WedSafe and Travelers,
both of which began selling
wedding insurance in 2007,
said most claims come from
problems with caterers,
photographers, halls and
other wedding businesses.
, "This indicates some
wedding venues and ven-
dors are facing the same
financial challenges as
other businesses," said
Alan Tuvin, vice president
of product management for
Travelers.
A wedding policy can
reimburse you for money
you can't get back if the big
day is canceled because a
storm shuts -down airports
or a burst pipe floods a
hotel kitchen. There's cov-
erage for lost or stolen
wedding jewelry, and dam-
aged or missing gowns. If
the photographer doesn't
show up or the pictures are
damaged, policies may pay
to reassemble the wedding
party and restage the cere-
mony. so new photos can be
taken. There's also cover-
age for military deployment
and liability, which some
venues require in case
someone gets hurt.
Policies can be bought
for as little as $95, depend-
ing on how much is being
spent on' the wedding.
Nuccio says $250 would
buy good coverage for a
$30,000 wedding; about
$2,400 for a $250,000
event.
WedSafe says fewer than
10 percent of weddings are
insured. The Wedding
Report, a market research
company,- estimates that 11
percent of the 2.1 million
weddings in the United
States last year were
insured.

For some wedding plan-
ners, insurance is a must,
and they see more couples
at least asking about it.
"When I first heard of
wedding insurance I wvas
doubtful of its practicality,"
said New York City planner
Stella Inserra, who began
recommending insurance in
January. "Nowadays, it is a
necessity."
SMelissa Wagner, a plan-
ner in Allen, Texas, bought
a policy for her own wed-
ding, coming up in October.
"I am a very cautious per-
son who does not like bad
surprises," Wagner said.

Man puts his convenience, ahead of girlfriend's safety


Dear Abby: My
live-in, boyfriend,
"Travis," and I are
having a disagree-
ment. When I get
home around 5 p.m.
I lock the door
behind me, espe- '
cially when I'm
home alone. Travis Dear
gets home between
4:40 and 8 p.m.
If I arrive first, he gets
upset that he must unlock
the door because he often
takes his laptop and other
things to and from work. I
told him I don't feel com-
fortable leaving my door
unlocked when I'm here by
myself. I try to get to the
door to let him in if I hear
him outside, but I'm usually
too slow.
Travis believes I am just
insecure and think the worst
of the world around me. He
says I am choosing my irra-
tional feelings over upsetting
him..I told him if the alter-
native was for me to be
robbed, raped or murdered,
then I would hope his having
to use his key every day
would be worth it. I know
it's unlikely that anything
will happen to me, but it
only takes one time.
Abby, am I paranoid or


can you help me
convince Travis of
the. importance of
locking the door,
especially when I
am home alone? -

Dear Safety
r Abby Conscious: I wish I
could count the
times I have turned on the
evening news and heard
someone say after yet anoth-'
er bloody tragedy: "But we
live in a safe neighborhood.
These kinds of things never
happen here!" And how
many times have we all
heard the police issue a
warning to the community to
keep your doors and win-
dows locked?
Of course you're not para-
noid. You are acting respon-.
sibly. Unfortunately, your
boyfriend is so self-centered
he would rather jeopardize
your safety than have his
key ready when he gets out
of his car. Bottom line:
Either he adjusts his attitude
or you should seriously con-
sider upgrading the quality
of the men in your life.

Dear Abby: Five years
ago, while still in high


school, I had a quick "fling"
with a boy I had known
since elementary school. It
wasn't serious, and we did-
n't have sex. We mutually
agreed that it was simply
fun. We haven't seen or
talked to each other since.
I have no regrets about it.
I was 17, had just been
dumped for my baby sister
and was having self-esteem
issues. He made me feel
beautiful and desirable.
A year later I started dat-
ing my fiance. We have been
together ever since. I love
him dearly. We have a solid
relationship, and we're very
happy.
The problem is I some-
times still think about my
fling from high school. I
wonder what would have
happened if we had dated, or
if he still thinks about me. Is
this normal for a woman
who is getting ready to be
married to the only man she
has had sex with, and the
only person she has dated
for more than a few weeks?
Or does it say more about'
my relationship with my
fiance than I think it does? -
Confused in Ohio
Dear Confused: I'm glad
you wrote. What you are


feeling may, be less about
your high school "fling"
than concern because you
have limited experience in
the dating world - a boy
who dumped you, a high
school crush and five years
with the person you met
next. Obviously, you are
having some doubts. It is
important to examine them.
If you and your. fiance
have not had premarital
counseling, it is in both your
interests to schedule some.
You're still young, and if
you were ready for marriage
you would be going full
steam ahead - not looking in
the rearview mirror.

Making doctor visits less

stressful and more productive


Today's ever-busier health
care systems can often seem
rushed and impersonal.
Doctors may care as much
about their patients as ever,
but they may not have much'
time to spend counseling and
reassuring each patient.
The result is that a visit to
the doctor can be a stressful
and frustrating experience.
We're worried about our ill-
ness or symptoms, intimidat-
ed by that white coat, con-
fused by the medical jargon
and perhaps feeling slightly
rushed.
The answer is to.take
steps that can help minimize
the stress of a doctor visit
while also helping insure
that you're getting the most
from that visit.
A starting point is to be
what counseling profession-
als call "appropriately
assertive." That simply
means speaking clearly and
directly while .also being
aware of both your and the
other person's needs. You
want to establish a climate'
of mutual respect that
acknowledges the doctor's
busy schedule fs well as
your needs to have your
questions answered.
Start by writing a list. of
your health questions, leav-
ing space for the answers.
Tell your doctor you have
questions and ask if he'd
like to answer them before
or after the exam.
If you find your doctor is
using medical jargon or tech-
nical terms, politely ask him

or herto restate what's being
said in simpler terms.
Doctors don't mean to con-
fuse, but sometimes what are
common terms to them are
confusing to their patients.
Don't just passively listen,
pretending to understand.
If a doctor visit makes you
too nervous to really hear
what's being said, consider
bringing a friend or family
member along as a second
set of ears. Or, with the doc-
tor's permission, recording
answers with a small tape
recorder or MP3 player will
allow you to be sure not to
miss anything.
Your goal is to get the
information you need.
Assertive communication
means being politely proac-
tive. Ask follow-up ques-
tions if something is unclear.
If the doctor advises waiting
to see what develops, ask for
specifics on time and what
type of developments to look
for. At the end, summarize
what you you've heard about
your diagnosis and possible
treatments. Give the doctor a
chance to correct anything
you may have misinterpret-
ed.
