Jorge Ochoa Ramos, 46, was released on a $401,000 bond and failed to appear in court on July 5 for charges stemming from a Dec. 4, 2010 domestic dispute in Highlands County that led to him being charged with three counts of attempted murder in the first degree, one count of burglary with assault and battery and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Ramos, who has arrest records stretching back into January of 2010 for aggravated assault and burglary, was captured on Interstate 10 in Lafayette Parish without incident after the 2007 Saturn SUVwas spotted along the highway.

According to a press release from HCSO Public Information Officer Nell Hays, 27 parrots were rescued and 25 birds were found dead after caretakers Donnalee Ping and Stewart Scrimshaw were asked to perform maintenance work on the property. As the boyfriend and girlfriend began cleaning the property, Ping and Scrimshaw discovered a large pen and several cages with numerous dead birds before contacting the HCSO, Parrots as Pets Rescue and Florida Parrot Rescue of Orlando to assist in the recovery effort. The release stated that the HCSO Agriculture Deputy Fred Tagtmeier is currently investigating the case of alleged animal cruelty. The property had been leased to Karen Howard, who had kept the birds as well as several other animals on the property belonging to Sandra Chandler. Officials with the Highlands County Health Department issued an order to have the place cleaned up within 48 hours on Tuesday. Hays stated that the investigation remains open and charges are still pending in the case at press time on Thursday. There are a lot of issues involved here and several different agencies, Hays said Thursday. We have the Health Department, Florida Game and Fish as well as another department in our agency working on this. There are definitely charges pending. For example, FWC (Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission) has rules about how many birds can be kept in a cage and where they can be kept. One department in our agency is working on possible animal cruelty, and other charges may be pending, but I cant go into that right now, Hays said. HSCO investigating neglect of more than 50 parrots By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY firstname.lastname@example.orgAVON PARK Members of the city manager screening committee met in the city council chambers Wednesday afternoon. It immediately became clear individual members were unsure as to what the city council expected from them and why they were formed as a committee. What is our charge? South Florida Community College president Norm Stephens asked. What do you want us to do? The question had special significance because interim city manager Julian Deleon had unexpectedly submitted an application for the position at literally the last moment on Friday, after saying he did not want the job. The committee wasnt sure if they should begin work to narrow the 18-candidate list, or if Deleon was guaranteed AP city manager search committee left wondering Unsure if search is wanted after Deleon puts in for the job News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Members of the Avon Park city manager search committee gather to begin screening 18 candidates for the position on Monday.

Anthony was on trial for the murder of her then 2year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony, but was acquitted of first degree murder, aggravated child abuse, and manslaughter on Tuesday afternoon. Anthony was convicted of four counts of lying to law enforcement. She was sentenced early Thursday morning four years of jail time (one year for each count), but was credited with time served. Anthony has been in jail since 2008 awaiting trial and will be released Wednesday, her attorney told ABC News Thursday morning. Avon Park resident Katelyn Fry followed the trial since the beginning and was surprised at the outcome. I cant believe she got away scott free, Fry said.

Agood portion of their duty hours are spent waiting for the need to act. When they have to act, however, they must to it quickly, with confidence, focus, teamwork and precision. That is why training is such an important part of their work day. Wednesday, the afternoon shift of the Avon Park Fire Department took apart a vehicle using every tool at their disposal, just for the practice. The Ford Astro van was donated by Richard Macklin, of Macklin Towing, for the purpose. The team of fire fighters Clint Culverhouse, Alan Givens and Mike Turek were led and supervised by Lt. Steve Kempe, who is currently acting as a captain while David Cloud assumes the position of fire chief. The News-Sun was invited to watch this quarterly drill to see how the men went about it and how the tools worked. Getting people out News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Lt.

Correction New-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY A nne Lindsay, longtime teacher, school administrator and former director of curriculum and instruction for Highlands County has accepted the position of Sebring High School principal. Here the school board members welcome her back to the district Tuesday night, during the boards regular meeting. By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY email@example.comSEBRING Im baaack, Anne Lindsay, newly appointed principal of Sebring High School, said, as she was enthusiastically welcomed by the school board Tuesday night. Lindsay took what became a fouryear break from education in 2007. Until then she was an educator all her life. She began teaching business in 1979. Here in Highlands County she served as assistant principal at Woodlawn Elementary and Sebring Middle School, then became Sebring Middles principal. In 2001, she became the districts director of curriculum and instruction until she left. It was clear Lindsay was as pleased to return as the board was to see her. In 2007 I needed to make a decision, she told the News-Sun in a separate interview, and support my husband and family business (Baker Septic Installations). In the past four years we worked to build capacity so the business could sustain itself. As those goals were accomplished, Lindsay found herself missing the classroom. I used to teach my Barbie dolls, she said Tuesday night. I had the itch to get back. Ive never lost the passion. Then, as she put it, the stars aligned. First, things were good at home and at the business. Then the highly regarded Toni Stivender, principal of Sebring High School, was transferred to Lake Placid High School to help improve its overall performance, leaving Sebring the largest school in the county without a leader. Only one other individual applied for the position, a man from out of state who did not have Florida credentials. Im back in my element, Lindsay said. Im feeling good. We have an extremely competent staff (at the high school) I think well be just fine. Lindsay ready to get back into education after four-year break Taking over as principal at Sebring High School Sgt. Devin Snyder could always make her friends laugh, even during long patrols in northeastern Afghanistan. Aweek into her first overseas deployment, the 20-year-old military police officer was still doing what she loved most. She was always the first to smile, Sgt. Jonathan Enlow said June 11 at Forward Operating Base Mehtar Lam. She was someone who was always able to bring a smile out from everybody else, too. Afew days later, the laughter faded when several of Sgt. Snyders fellow soldiers were wounded in a roadside bomb attack. She wasnt hurt, but I think it started making her see that it was truly dangerous, the soldiers mother, Dineen Snyder, told The Unknown Soldiers. Knowing those people wouldnt come back to her platoon ... it brought her down. While still agonizing for the friends injured in the April 4 attack, Snyder picked herself up. Afew days later, she was upbeat again and ready to do another mission, her mom recalled. But things werent the same. During the rest of her deployment, Snyder worried that the sacrifices being made by her unit were being overlooked. She was worried that people werent seeing how hard she worked, the soldiers mother said. Snyder, who joined the military after graduating high school, spent a lifetime surrounded by servic e. Her father, Ed, is a retired Navy officer. Her sister, Natasha, currently serves in the Navy, while the youngest of her two broth ers, Damien, recently joined the Army. Devin wanted to serve, and as she showed during her stellar high school track career i n Cohocton, N.Y., nothing would prevent her from reaching the finish line. She was very strongwilled, Ed Snyder said. She knew what she wanted. The clash of what this radiant, fun-loving soldier ultimately wanted out of life is fascinating and reveals surprising similari ties between Army fatigues and Snyders favorite color: pink. She liked being a soldier, her mom said. But she also loved being a girly-girl, wearing her heels and carrying her purses. Somebody to love Sgt. Devin Snyder, 20, of Cohocton, N.Y., was killed in a June 4 improvised explosive device attack in Afghanistans Laghman province. Image courtesy of R.I.P. Devin Twiggy Snyder Facebook page.

C M Y K We completely sympathize with school board member Andy Tucks request Tuesday night to agree in advance not to raise the school districts millage rate for the coming fiscal year.Like hundreds of thousands of other people, we live paycheck to paycheck, eat baloney instead of roast beef and spend our vacations doing work around our homes instead of taking cruises and hiring a contractor. We know all too well how to squeeze the last penny out of a dime. We certainly have no interest in paying higher taxes. But and it is a big but we may have to cope with reality, rise to the occasion and do what is best for the future in spite of the pain it causes us now. Before going further, we need to emphasize this conversation is premature the state wont release its millage rates until July 19. The tentative school district millage rate of 7.75 is up from 7.616, the rate in 20102011. That is a rise of less than a dime. This is, however, only an estimate. As the numbers are crunched, the millage rate may not change at all from last year, or it could fall back, or rise even higher than 7.75. At this time there is no way of knowing. So, why speak out now? Because as much as we sympathize with Tuck, and are grateful to him for thinking of us hard-working, ordinary folk, we worry that going into final budget discussions with a closed mind, and both eyes on the wallet, may not be in our best interests in the long term. The fact is the state sets all millage rates for the school districts. The school board has no discretion, with the single exception of capital outlay. That tentative rate is 1.5. Capital outlay funds are used to pay for construction, new equipment and the repayment of debt. Most of those funds are being used here to pay off the loans incurred during the roughly six years the board was expanding existing schools and building Memorial Elementary School. If we are going to turn this economy around and stabilize our future we are going to need a well educated work force that knows how to problem solve and think creatively. It boils down to enlightened self-interest. When we call 911 we want people who can figure out how to get to where we are. In a line at the store, we want people who can count change quickly and accurately. When our computer crashes we want someone who can actually fix it. When, as individuals, we become frail with old age we want to be sure our caretakers not only know what they are doing, but enjoy doing it. It isnt all about us either. We hope we are all agreed that we want our children and grandchildren and nieces and nephews and the neighborhood kids to become fulfilled and successful, engaged and aware, living in a fairer world with ample opportunity. Those kinds of goals, however, do not come cheap, and the school district is already having to do with much less than it had only a few years ago. Make no mistake; we are not here arguing for higher taxes. All we are asking is to keep our minds open during the budget process. Rejecting any kind of a tax increase, regardless of circumstances, is just as reckless as raising taxes regardless of the consequences. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, July 8, 2011Page 3ATODAYSEDITORIALTODAYSLETTERS 2227 U.S. 27 South Sebring, FL 33870 863-385-6155 NEWSROOMROMONA WASHINGTONPublisher/Executive Editor Ext. firstname.lastname@example.org SCOTT DRESSELEditor Ext. email@example.comDAN HOEHNESports Editor Ext. firstname.lastname@example.org ADVERTISINGVICKIE JONESExt. email@example.com CIRCULATIONTONY MCCOWANExt. firstname.lastname@example.org BUSINESS OFFICEJANET EMERSONExt. email@example.com EDITORIAL& OPINION Keeping an open mind Electoral system has to changeEditor: The electoral American system of government, the twoparty political system, has to change. Incumbents with 30 or 40 years, is the norm. The American taxpayer should demand the net worth of all incumbents pension cost, insurance cost, the total cost to the taxpayer. It should alarm all taxpayers. It is time that the taxpayers demand term limits for all public officials, local, state and federal. Achange to the 22nd amendment to include all public officials with term limits. The statement of all our trust funds should all be wearing striped suits for allowing our trust funds to be raided. We have incumbents on all sides of the isle, those who were the stewards of our trust funds, promoting destroying American safety nets, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, everything that protects Americas middle class and its aged and poor. Social Security and our trust funds did not create the debt crisis. It was created by trying to be the policeman for the entire world. Our tax system was and is not, capable of saving the world financial market. The 10-year tax cuts for the very rich, taken out of our trust funds should be returned to the trust funds. IOUs should be repaid with interest. Those stewards of these funds should be removed from government; they are more dangerous than the Al Capones of the 1920s. The 2012 elections should demand term limits for all. The two parties should not continue picking who will and who will not be on the political ticket. The controlling the election is and has not ever been the freedom to vote. The taxpayers should not bail out the Greeks, as the international monetary funds is proposing. The American jobs all went to Europe and Asia with the backing of the United States tax dollars. Now those stewards, the Congress and the Senate, wish to bail out the American workerscompetition. Throw the incumbent Senators and Congress out on the street without pensions. They have stolen enough of Americas tax dollars, demand the net worth be revealed. Lets have a little of that transparency we were promised last election. Demand term limits in 2012. Throw the bums out, without a pension. Billie E. Jewett SebringWhy side with the garment makers?Editor: I have been castigated by many for my stance as a Democrat by those who favor the other side of the isle, but this a first: Now I have been castigated for defending the flag of the United States against those who wear clothing made from our flag. David Bruce Scott has a very impressive family history from the military. So its baffling as to why he should side with Chinese garment makers who mutilate our flag by cutting it up to make garments such as shirts, scarfs, blouses, shorts, neck ties, hats etc. of which he proclaims he will proudly wear. Sad. The booklet, Our Flag, that he derides, is the official publication for the flag of The United States, published by the Joint Committee on Printing, United States Congress, Publication H. Doc.100-247. For sale by the Supt. of Documents, Washington, D.C. It explains in detail how our flag should be displayed, maintained and honored. Something Mr. Scott should read. Oh, by the way, when I went into the service it was called The United States Army Air Corp. After serving with the Eighth Air Force ETO, B17'sRadar, I received an honorable discharge from the United States Army Air Forces. Sandy Oleesky Sebring Once upon a time, peoples hands were busy putting food on the table and they were too busy or too proud to consider extending those same hands out to the government for a handout. But that time has long passed, and time is running out before America the Great turns into America the Nanny State. Let this Conservative go on record: When used properly, welfare can be a force for good for those most in need. Unfortunately, we have an administration, whose failed (0-97 in the Senate) 2011 budget bulged with middle-class handouts meant to expand the welfare state. Democrats are bent on making addicts of otherwise perfectly capable citizens to the designer drug of taxpayer dollars. In an attempt to make this addiction permanent, the administration rolled out Obamacare. In 2008, anxiety over a failing economy and soaring costs of healthcare helped to propel Obama to the White House, but, three years later, and after the passing of Obamacare, the anxiety has morphed into anger as the truth about this poorly constructed bill unfolds to find that it is nothing more than a compilation of mistakes, bloopers, paybacks and blunders that fix healthcare about as well as handing a bandage and bottle of blood thinner to a gunshot victim. The most recent blunder, which involves dropping people from the middle class and rolling them onto the welfare rolls, will not only add billions of dollars of cost to the bill; it will throw millions of middle class retirees into the Medicaid program. Medicaid was created to help the most needy in our society. Medicare actuary, Richard Foster, told the House Budget Committee that a provision in Obamacare did not consider social security benefits when calculating eligibility for early retirees, effectively branding those making up to $64,000 per year as destitute. Talk about the destruction of the middle class. Most troubling is the White House admits Democrat lawmakers knew this provision was in the bill and passed it anyway. Come hell or high water, the Democrat-controlled Senate and House insisted on ramming Obamacare down the throats of Americans against our wishes, and did not care that it would apply more pressure to state budgets already buckling underneath the weight of exorbitant Medicaid costs. Additionally, Obamacare adds an estimated 16 million to 20 million lowincome childless adults to Medicaid programs that will be initially funded entirely by taxpayers. Although it was their desire to have a European style socialized healthcare system, Democrats created some sort of Frankenstein system that is bloated, clumsy and solves health issues like a wrecking bal l helps to remodel a home. In this case, the US economy is a house of cards. It seems like only yesterday Obama promised that everyone could keep their own healthcare plans, nor would he write any health care plan into law which added to the deficit. But, that was yesterday. Here is whats happening today: The release of a McKinsey & Company survey found that due to Obamacare reg ulations, some 1300 employers will drop their employer health insurance plans, forcing as many as 78 million workers and families into Obamacare. A Price Waterhouse Cooper survey found half of all employers indicated they were likely to change subs idies for employee medical coverage. In a Wall Street Journal op-ed piece, Former Governor Phil Bredesen, warned that dropping employer coverage and forcing employees into taxpayer-funded Obamacare will become very attractive to many employers, both public and private. The problem with socialism, said Margaret Thatcher is that you eventually run out of other peoples money. The sand in the hourglass is getting low. Either Americas flirtation with socialism will run out of support, or America will run out of money.

Celebrate Dog Days of Summer during Julys Destination Downtown While admiring one of Snyders pink handbags, you would undoubtedly notice the flowered tattoos covering the upper-half of her left arm. Upon returning from Afghanistan, the soldier wanted to fill the rest of that arm and some of her right, before showing off her tattoos in magazines. At the same time, she would either stay in the Army and become a deception analyst, or head home to become a police officer. She was a go-getter all the time, even as a little kid, Snyders mom said. When she wanted something, she went after it. On June 4, the dreams of Snyder and three brothers in arms, Sgt. Christopher Bell, 21, Sgt. Joshua Powell, 28, and Spc. Robert Voakes, 21, tragically ended. The Pentagon said the four soldiers, all of whom served with the 793rd Military Police Battalion, were killed by an improvised explosive device planted by terrorists in Laghman province. The military said a civilian contractor, Brett Benton, 37, also died in the attack. It was the worst day of our lives, Ed Snyder said. It was our worst nightmare. ... It really was, Dineen Snyder added. As an unwanted chapter of unimaginable grief begins for five American families, something huge is comforting the Snyders. When thousands filled the streets of Cohocton to salute Devin, two grieving parents realized their daughter was loved by more people than they could have imagined. Indeed, she and her fellow soldiers were noticed. Its such a tribute to her, her mom said. It makes me feel like she touched so many people, whether it was with her smile or a kind word. Arecent trip to Alaskas Fort Richardson, where Snyders relatives spent time with loved ones of the soldiers she died alongside, also helped the family carry on. Everybody is just trying to get through and find the new normal, Dineen Snyder explained. The four that were killed were a good team; they worked together and never had a bad word to say about each other. Somewhere, Sgt. Devin Snyder is once again laughing with her friends. Hopefully, she knows how much she is loved by the country she died for.

Nell Hays, public information officer for the HCSO, said that Ramos was released on Dec. 20, 2010 on bond awaiting trial scheduled for July, and the warrant was issued for his arrest with a nationwide pickup authorization immediately after his failure to appear. At approximately 2 p.m. Wednesday, Louisiana authorities blocked off a section of Interstate 10 for about 45 minutes in order to apprehend Ramos, who was considered armed and dangerous. Hays also stated that after being apprehended, Ramos refused to give authoriti es any information as to his identity, but was identified by his HCSO booking photo and fingerprints. Ramos is currently being held at the Lafayette Parrish Correctional Center pending extradition, Hays said, but charges pending in Louisiana for fleeing arrest may have to be resolved before Ramos can be returned.

Continued from page 2A have been watching from the beginning. I remember when the girl first went missing. Wow. Fry, who said that she was adopted at a young age, felt very strongly about the idea of Anthony being an unfit mother from the beginning. She didnt even report her missing. I feel like she wanted to go out and party and do whatever she wanted and not be a mom anymore, Fry said. Fry herself is in the process of adopting her own 19-month-old niece, a fact that she is proud of. My mom couldnt have children so she adopted me. There are so many people out there that want children. She didnt have to kill her daughter, said Fry. Asmall group of Sebring Wal-Mart employees were discussing the outcome Tuesday afternoon near a check-out counter. One employee didnt want to share her name but was openly vocal about the verdict. I can not believe she didnt get anything. She didnt even report her missing, the grandmother did. She is guilty. That poor girl got no justice, said the employee. The names of the 12 men and women of the jury have yet to be made public. However, one male juror, juror No. 6, has spoken to the entertainment media site TMZ.com about being paid for his interview. Asecond juror, 32-yearold Pinellas county resident and nursing student Jennifer Ford, has just recently said we were sick to our stomach to get that verdict, but said the prosecution did not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Anthony was guilty. I never said she was innocent, but it all boils down to what you can prove and not what you think. The state did not present enough concrete evidence so it is not the fault of the jury, said recent college grad Kenneth Henderson via a Facebook discussion Tuesday afternoon. The 100,000 People Who Think The Casey Anthony Verdict Was Wrong Facebook page created Tuesday afternoon swelled rapidly to 256,470 members as of Thursday morning. In contrast, the Support Casey Anthony page was created back in May at the beginning of the trail and has just over 4,100 members. As a result of the verdicts, lawmakers across the country have also been in a buzz the last couple of days. One Republican representative has put the wheels in motion for a law that will hold parents accountable in the case a child becomes missing. According to the Christian Post, Rep. Paul Wesselhoft (R-Okla.) said on Wednesday that he will introduce Caylees Law, which would require parents to notify authorities of a missing or dead child in a timely manner. More than 266,000 people have signed a petition on change.org in favor of the creation of Caylees Law.

Mayor Sharon Schuler and council members Paul Miller and Terry Heston have already indicated they wanted Deleon to be permanent city manger, Heston in particular lobbying him. Former council member George Hall made it clear he was upset with the process. Im not spending any time on this (if its a done deal), he said. Throw it back to the council. I agreed to be on this committee when Deleon said he didnt want the job. Major Shirley Jackson of the Avon Park Correctional Institute, another member of the committee, said, I agree with Hall. Its like handwriting on the wall. The rest of the committee quickly concurred, but important general points were brought up. There were concerns, for example, about the forms the committee was to use in rating candidates, especially the lack of room to write notes. Theres no other place to put data, former city council member and committee member Joe Wright said. There was also conce rn about the lack of contact with applicants. The city council already announced its intention of interviewing the finalists by itself. The committee would be working by rsum alone. Ironically, some members considered Deleon a strong candidate, but were not willing to support his application because of the last-minute change. Hes done a great job, said Jim Barnard, but I wont vote for him. Jackson reminded members that just because Deleon had changed his mind at the last minute, it should not be held against him, but she added that she still agreed with Hall, especially if the council has already decided. The meeting adjourned only minutes after it began, the committee now waiting to see what the city council chooses to do. Members present Wednesday were: Jim Barnard, Carl Cool, Arnold Davis, Hall, AlJoe Hinson, Jackson, Bill Jarrett, Randy Jordan, Stephens and Wright. Continued from page 1A City manager panel not sure how to proceed Classified ads get results! Before even going into the physical labor involved, its important for the reader to imagine the conditions: Muggy heat coupled with heavy, multiple layered protective gear, including not just helmets but thick head liners. Sweat rolled down the mens necks, into their eyes and inside their gloves. Kempe explained that most of the modern tools are powered by hydraulics or electricity. They are highly reliable, but on-site work holds all kinds of challenges. In a ditch, in the rain, at two oclock in the morning, for example, first responders better have backup equipment, some that can be used by hand. In approaching a vehicle with an entrapped individual, Kempe said the first thing is to stabilize it, using braces and blocks. Then the team methodically attacks the car, often working in twos with the Jaws of Life, which are actually two separate tools, a spreader and a cutter. As the team used a hand tool that both cracks and saws window glass, they pushed the broken fragments into the vans interior to keep the ground clean. Givens turned to the observer and said, We wouldnt usually cover the patient with glass like this. Kempe added that patients would be protected by a sheet or blanket and have a paramedic inside the vehicle with them. The next step is to remove any doors or obstacles in the way. Because many people in front-end collisions get their legs trapped under the dashboard, firemen have a procedure to lift the dash by as much as eight inches. Before work like that can begin, however, airbags have to be accounted for. Exploded airbags pose no danger, but an unexploded airbag or rather the small cylinder of propellant that makes the air bag work is capable of killing a person. With so many vehicles now carrying side airbags as well as front ones, there is no room for a mistake. The inside paneling is removed and all propellant canisters accounted for before anything else is done. The working motto is Try before you pry. Canisters continue to be dangerous even when removed. Adding to the variables, no two auto manufactures use the same type canister or put their airbags in exactly the same place. Fire departments are creating software so the make and model can be typed in and a diagram of the airbags brought up. Once air bags are secured and blocking windows removed, the fun part begins using cutters, spreaders, air hammers and even hacksaws to cut through window and door posts, to remove the doors, raise the dash or lift the roof from the body of the vehicle altogether. While the tools cut easily, the tearing metal grinds, shrieks and pops. Wednesday, the men took their time, trying different tools, doing some things by hand. In the field they work swiftly, and recently extricated a trapped woman in 59 seconds using the spreaders. After over an hour of sawing, punching, pulling and cutting, the five men were exhausted. Pulling off their jackets they sat down, Tshirts as wet as if they had just stepped out of the shower. Nothing we do is healthy, said Kempe with a wide smile.

C M Y K Hit No. 3,000 was a big enough deal for Roberto Clemente that he couldnt sleep after a scorers decision cost him the mark. Still, a crowd of just 13,117 turned out in Pittsburgh for the Saturday afternoon game when he doubled for what would be both the biggest and last regular-season hit of a Hall of Fame career. They didnt show up knowing the career would be cut tragically short. What stood for ceremony on Sept. 30, 1972, was a simple doff of the cap at second base and a shake of the umpires hand. Later, fellow 3,000 club member Willie Mays then playing for the Mets would visit the opposing dugout to offer his congratulations. Contrast that to what will likely happen sometime over the next few days at the house that George Steinbrenner built. Trailed by an HBO documentary crew and watched carefully by reporters from outlets Clemente never would have imagined, Derek Jeter will reach the milestone that defines true hitters in baseball. Hell be the first one in pinstripes to get his 3,000th hit, and the new Yankee Stadium will have some history of its own. Nothing wrong with that, even if it promises t o be over the top in the way only New York can deliver. Certainly theres nothing wrong with Jeter being feted as the Yankee hero that he is, even if he still may have some hard feelings over a contract the club gave him just so he would be around for this moment. Theres little about Jeter that hasnt already been said: Hes a one-team player in an era where players change teams more often than their socks. There will be a day in the not too distant future when he will get his own plaque in Monument Park. Hes got five World Series rings, and the odds are good he will add at least one more before his By DAN HOEHNE email@example.comIts that time of year again, with the Dixie Boys State Tournament getting underway tomorrow right here in Sebring at the Max Long Recreational Complex. By virtue of hosting the event, the Sebring All-Star squad was given an automatic berth and will be looking to make a run toward a state championship and a trip to the World Series in Beaufort, S.C. But while they have the talent and experience blended together with some members having been part of the Ozone World Series winner last summer, it wont be an easy road, with a number of strong teams from around the state. We have five kids that were on the Ozone team last year, head coach Israel Gomez said. And other than a couple additions, this is the same team we took to the World Series two years ago, so weve got the experience. But we told them, we cant take anybody for granted. After what weve done the last two years, were the big target that everyone wants a shot at. And one could well be a fellow Highlands County resident, the District 8 winning Lake Placid All-Stars, who rode a resounding offensive attack through the early rounds and got strong pitching in the end to secure the district title on Monday, June 27. Although rains delayed things at the start, a bit of ingenuity was used to lessen the delay. We called in a couple of airboats to blow-dry the field, Lake Placid league president Randy Harris said. That got the field ready in an hour. Justin LaRosa, the hitting hero earlier in the weekend, let his arm do the talking in the championship game against Okeechobee, holding the Junior Brahmans to one run in the 7-1 win. The win was payback for the 8-4 loss that Okee had put on the Junior Dragons the night before to force the rubber match. The district tournament had started out with Avon Park pounding DeSoto by a 13-2 count in the Friday, June 24, opener and Lake Placid had pounded Okeechobee 2110 in the nightcap. Oddly, the first three innings ended with the Dragons up by a slim and quiet 1-0 margin. But thats when the scene dramatically shifted as Lake Placid plated 20 over the next four innings, 14 in the sixth alone. LaRosa hit for the cycle, singling in the first and sixth, doubling in the fourth, tripling in the fifth and homering in the sixth.

Jeter the last great Yankee to celebrate TIMDAHLBERG Associated Press See JETER, Page 4B By NEDRAPICKLER and MARK SHERMAN Associated PressWASHINGTON Onetime baseball superstar Roger Clemens is in the midst of a tedious and humbling process that is one of the most important parts of his trial on charges of lying about drug use selecting the jury members who will decide his fate. So far the pitching great hasnt gotten a lot of love from the line of Washingtonians who have been questioned about their fitness to serve on his trial, expected to last into August. There were some sports fans in the group, but most said they dont know much about him. If he were sitting there, I would not know who he was, one woman said, as Clemens sat facing her about 15 feet away. Among those who said she follows baseball was a retired writer and lawyer who acknowledged Thursday that she wants to be a juror. I would like to be on this jury because I think I can keep people focused, said the woman, who called herself a die-hard Washington Nationals fan. Another person who said he knew a lot about Clemens and his case was 37-year-old Omari Bradley. The former personal trainer and Little League coach said he considers himself a fair person. But Bradley said he had to admit he would have a hard time finding Clemens not guilty after all hes heard in the media about how the seven-time Cy Young Award winner should just admit he used steroids. The judge excused Bradley. Clemens steadfastly denies the allegations made by his former trainer, who says he injected Clemens with performance-enhancing drugs repeatedly as the pitcher maintained a blinding throwing speed into middle age. Clemens says the trainer, Brian McNamee, is a liar who fabricated evidence against him. McNamee gave federal agents their most important physical evidence in the case needles and gauze the trainer said he used to inject the star athlete. Clemens is accused of lying under oath to the House Government Reform Committee in 2008 when he Clemens not getting a lot of love from jury pool See CLEMENS, Page 4B

The following day, June 25, saw DeSoto bounced from the double elimination tournament, with Okeechobee picking up a 15-6 win and Lake Placid continued its heavy hitting with a 21-11 win over Avon Park. Devlin and McGrath scored in the first to put AP up 2-0 and added six in the top of the second for an 8-0 lead. But the Dragons came roaring back with six in the bottom of the second to make it a two-run game. Three more for Avon Park in the third upped the ante, but that would also mark the end of the Devil scoring as the Lake Placid relievers held them in check the rest of the way. The offense, meanwhile, continued to pile up runs with four in the third, including a two-run triple from LaRosa, one in the fourth, six in the fifth and four in the sixth. In the semifinal game, to insure a trip to state, Okeechobee did some heavy hitting to secure their spot and ousted Avon Park 14-4. It was a real exciting weekend, Harris said. Every game was high scoring and they all seemed to last at least three and-a-half hours. Lake Placid will get the state tournament started tomorrow morning, facing Paxton at 9 a.m., while Sebring faces Vernon at 3 p.m. Its great to have the home field advantage, Gomez said. We dont have to worry about arrangements and hotel rooms, the kids can go home and sleep in their own beds. We can just come out and play.

C M Y K Page 4BNews-SunFriday, July 8, 2011www.newssun.com Russel Realty 6x12 color, #00010054 current $51 million deal expires in three years. That hes not nearly the player he once was is hardly his fault. Age cruelly chips away at greatness and at 37, Jeter is a shortstop with limited range. Hes a singles hitter who doesnt hit enough singles. Once he passes 3,000, the debate will be renewed in New York about the wisdom of keeping him at the top of the lineup. Cheer now because the next time theres a similar outpouring of love for Jeter, hell be taking the field for the final time in his career. If you need another reason, remember the next Yankee to chase a record will be Alex Rodriguez, who plays next to Jeter in the Yankees infield. Some fans might find it awfully hard to root for ARod as he goes after the greatest baseball record of them all the career home run mark that still rightfully belongs to Henry Aaron. A-Rod is the anti-Jeter, a petulant player with tremendous skills who seems to play the game only for himself. He conned the Yankees into taking him on after three steroid-fueled years in Texas during which he hit 156 home runs, then got a new $275 million deal before he was finally outed as a user of performanceenhancing drugs. As part of that deal negotiated by A-Rod himself he will get a $6 million bonus when he catches Mays on the home run list, and $6 million more for each player he catches after that. There will be another $6 million when he passes Barry Bonds to become the all-time home run leader, giving him $30 million total for setting the mark. And he probably will. In the next few weeks he could catch Ken Griffey Jr. at 630 home runs, putting him among the top five home run hitters. From there, its 30 home runs to Mays, and then the chase is really on. That its a fraudulent chase may not matter in New York. It certainly wont matter to the Yankees, who will surely use it to peddle those expensive seats behind home plate they can never seem to sell. For those who care about the game, though, it will be distasteful. Baseball already has one steroid user atop the home run totals, and it hardly needs another. And A-Rod as the focal point of the home run chase during the next few years will be a daily reminder of all that went wrong with the sport and the people who stood by and allowed it to happen. All the more reason to celebrate Jeter as he goes after the last few hits he needs for entrance in a club that includes only 27 other major leaguers. Unlike the guy playing next to him, theres never been a whiff of scandal around Jeter, never a question that he might have done something illegal or unethical to get an edge. Jeter heads home Thursday for a four-game series against Tampa Bay at Yankee Stadium, where he and Yankee fans everywhere hope he gets the final three hits of needs for No. 3,000. Unlike Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh 39 years ago, the stadium figures to be packed. That it comes just before the All-Star break makes it even more delicious. Jeter can be feted over the weekend, and again in Arizona when he starts at shortstop for the American League. Hell get the kind of celebration Clemente never got. The kind of celebration A-Rod should never get. Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press. Write to him at tdahlberg(at)ap.org or http://twitter.com/timdahlberg Continued from 1B Jeter is the anti-ARod denied ever using steroids or human growth hormone. He faces six felony counts of perjury, false statements and obstruction of Congress. Prosecutors and the defense read the jury pool a list of people who may be called as witnesses or mentioned at the trial. The list included some of the biggest names in baseball, including others who have been at the center of the steroid scandal, such as Mark McGwire, Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, Rafael Palmeiro and Jose Canseco. The list also included baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, New York Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman, former Yankees manager Joe Torre, former playersunion director Donald Fehr and several other officials and teammates from the four major league teams Clemens played for. Jurors were asked about their knowledge of those figures as well as their feelings about the case, baseball, Congress and principles of criminal law. They were asked whether they had scientific training, played organized sports or were baseball fans. One public relations consultant was not. I cant imagine spending money to watch a sport where guys scratch themselves and spit a lot, she said, drawing a smile from Clemens, who otherwise sat expressionless through most of the proceedings. The woman said she could still be fair to Clemens, quipping that she doesnt consider spitting and scratching crimes. She was qualified to serve along with six others so far. In addition to Bradley, others excused were a woman with medical issues and another who said she couldnt be gone from work for the duration of the trial. U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said he hopes to wrap up jury selection Tuesday morning.

Im worried that Im not doing enough. Do youh ave any recommendations? K.S., Denver, Colo. Answer: Yes. a brand new study conducted at the University of Helsinki inF inland found positive benefits from something very cool, but tart. Lingonberries. Theyre popular in Scandinavia, but you probably havent ever tried them,u nless youre lucky enough to have a Swedish grandm other who made you pancakes with a side of lingonberry jam. These brightr ed arctic berries have been around for centuries, and p eople squeeze them into juice or jam; sometimes theyre cooked in stew but theyre not eaten raw, because their tartness willm ake you pucker. Long ago, Native A merican Cree people, used the cowberries or partridge berries in theirC anadian homeland, to treat symptoms of diabetes. T he Finnish study, just published in June, reported that lingonberry juice canh elp protect the delicate endothelial lining of blood vessels in lab animals with h igh blood pressure. This is important because the force o f blood under pressure continually slamming into the walls of blood vessels damages the lining of the vessels, making it easier for plaquest o accumulate and contribute to a heart attack or stroke. Researchers found that high levels of certain phytochemicals (most likely flavonols) in lingonberry juice normalized damage tob lood vessel linings in the animals. D oes this mean that lingonberry juice will do the same thing for humans? Possibly. Theres every reason to take advantage of the health benefits of this juice, and others that are packed with antioxidant power.A ntioxidants add a protection planto your body, a gainst everything from the common cold to cancer. I wish I could say that abouta tenolol, metoprolol, nifedipine, lisinopril or any other d rug used to reduce blood pressure. There are hundreds. They simply dont have antioxidant capabilities; I see nothing wrong with combin-i ng medication with lingonberry, if your doctor a pproves. The Finnish study did not show that lingonberry juicec an actually lower blood pressure like medicine, but it m ight protect those precious blood vessels against the ravages of hypertension and inflammatory chemicals. I mention this only because the new study has been misrepresented online with numerousc laims that lingonberry juice lowers blood pressure. Being a journalist myself, sloppy reporting like this drives me nuts. To be clear, if you tryt he juice and dont see reductions in your blood pressure, dont give up because you may lose out on the protection it confers to your arteries. C anadian researchers are finding definite medicinal p roperties for the treatment of diabetes. Apparently, lingonberries causes a slightr eduction in blood sugar. Other studies have confirmed t he anti-microbial effect of berries. Lingonberry juice is kind of new to the US, and found in some natural health food grocers and IKEAs tores. Its readily available online a s a juice concentrate. S uzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and author. Visit www. DearPharmacist.com.

Since at least the last four administrations, theW hite House tried to divide Israel into Arab and Jewish countries. This administration is trying even harder. I t is not just America, who wants to divide Israel, but it is also Europe (EU and the United Nations (UNw orld. But does no one realize that Israel is a very uniquec ountry, because it is the only country in the world who received the land fromG od? To your offspring I will give this land said G od to Abram (later called Abraham) in Genesis 12:7 (NIV F urthermore, does no one realize that God has g iven Israel a much larger portion of land, that reaches all the way to the Euphrates river? On that day the Lord made ac ovenant with Abram and said: To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates.( Genesis 15:18) Even on a purely secular l evel, did not Israel win the Six-Day War fair and square in 1967 and take the l and all the way to the Jordan river into possession? And now they are asked to give it up again? What would America say i f Mexico wanted Texas back? Or California? No way, Jose, right? And besides, the 1967 line is totally indefensible.O n its smallest side Israel is only nine miles to the 1 967 line. It takes a military jet f rom Damascus, Syria, about four minutes to strike Jerusalem or other targets in Israel. That is why Israel will never give up the Jordan V alley as their defense line. Now here are the bad news for America: Godw ill enter into judgment against America, if we f orce Israel to withdraw to the 1967 lines. God told us in Genesis 1 2:3: I will bless those who bless you, and whoeve r curses you I will curse. America has blessed Israel ever since 1948, when they became a nation, and as a result God hasb lessed America. God is giving the world a clear warning in Joel 2:2: I will gather all nations and bring them down to theV alley of Jehoshaphat (also called the valley where J ehovah judges). There I will enter into judgment against them concerning m y inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land. T he valley is also called Armageddon in the northeastern part of Israel. This fall the UN wants to divide the land. How ignorant. Y es, the stage is set for the second coming of J esus.

Oliver to share story Snapshots M y last two articles gave a short summary on the life of Joseph taken p rimarily from Genesis 37, 39, 41, 42, 45, and 50 (NKJVficult life, but God used the difficultiest o help develop Christ-like character in his life. Joseph knew what it was like to be h ated by his family, thrown into a pit, sold into slavery, and put into prison. H owever, the Lord did not allow any of this to take place in his life in vain. God had a great plan of moving him from the pit to the palace to reign as the king of Egypt. I n the previous articles pertaining to Joseph, I addressed some of his thoughts, emotions, and some of the questions he might have asked: Why God? I dont understand! How long do I have to sit here? Where are you? Im tired. Josephs life wasn ot much different than ours. God had a purpose and a plan for Josephs life. A nother way to express this is that God had his life already mapped out ahead of time. Joseph was on a journey, and as believers in Christ, we are on a journey. O ften times, in the midst of our journeys, we may often start feeling as Joseph and possibly ask the same questions. God understands, but lets consider some valuable lessons that Godm ay be trying to teach us while on the journey, which were very similar to Joseph and necessary to prepare him f or his position in the palace. L esson 1: When we begin to question why and are lookingf or understanding from a human standpoint, this can lead t o frustration. Joseph probably felt frust rated many times. After all, he was rather kind hearted and wanted to do the right thing. So, why did God keep allowing all these terrible things tok eep happening to Him? Gods word shows us that He simply wants us to trust Him and stop trying to figure it out. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths( Proverbs 3:5,6). Lesson 2: We may often find ours elves in places that may cause us to wonder how long we have to sit in these positions. Maybe you have a certain job that tests your patience and causes you to wonder how long theL ord is going keep you there. Im sure many can relate. Many of us may often begin to wonder if God forgot about us. Joseph probably wondered how long he would have to sit in that dark pit ori n prison. Was it possible that God was trying to teach him to be patient and to cry out to Him truly believing that He w as being heard by God? Consider James 1:2-4 if you are feeling somewhat uneasy in the midst of your jour-n ey. My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowi ng that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be per-f ect and complete, lacking nothing. Lesson 3: As we continue on our journey trying to be patient and trusting God for something great just a little ways ahead, we often grow tired andw eary in the process. Joseph probably did, too. He probably struggled in his heart and wondered if things were everg oing to get better. Gods word promises us that as we continue on our jour-n ey doing what He asks us to do even when it is hard and we dont like it, it will pay off, just as it did for Joseph. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shallr eap if we do not lose heart (Galatians 6:18). A s we continue on our journeys throughout the next week, lets try to remember the lessons taught to Josephw hile he waited and walked with God all the way up into the palace. If Joseph could persevere all the way, then we can too. L eslie Deese is a Sebring resident. She can be reached at email@example.com.

An Orange County university has offered to buy property belonging to the famous Crystal Cathedral Ministries, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last year. Chapman University has offered $46 million to use two buildings on the sprawling campus in Garden Grove, possibly for a new medical school, university president Jim Doti said Tuesday. Other possibilities include exploring the option of building a pharmacy or dental program on half of the property, with the remaining 35 acres leased back to the megachurch, he said. It is hard to find buildable land in a dynamic community like Garden Grove, Doti told The Associated Press, noting the church property is near several major hospitals. To dream big dreams, it helps to have the wherewithal to do it and the space. But there are other potential offers in the works and it is too soon to say what will happen to the sprawling church property, said Marc Winthrop, the churchs bankruptcy attorney.

C M Y K By CHRISTYLEMIRE A PMovie Critic Horrible Bosses wallows in silliness gleefully, and without an ounce of remorse or self-consciousness and even though youre a grown-u p and you know you should know better, you will be happy to wallow right along, as well. Its a film thats wildly, b razenly stupid but also, you know, fun. Because like Bad Teacher, another recent raunchfest, Horrible Bosses knows exactly whati t is and doesnt aspire to be anything more (or dare we s ay better?), and that lack of pretention is refreshing. It isnt trying to say anythingp rofound about society or the economy or the fragile psyc he of the post-modern man. Its about three guys who hate their jobs and want to kill their bosses. And really, who among us hasnt pon-d ered such a plan? Naturally, no member of t his trio is nearly as clever or sophisticated as he thinks he is. Together, they bumble andb ungle every step of the way and occasionally, by accid ent, they get something right. But the dynamic between Jason Bateman,J ason Sudeikis and Charlie Day as they bounce off each other is cheerfully loony, and t he energy of their banter (which often feels improv ised) has enough of an infectious quality to make you want to forgive the films general messiness. Although maybe such a sloppya pproach was intentional given the subject matter. Seth Gordon, who previously directed the inspired documentary The King of K ong: AFistful of Quarters (and the Vince Vaughn-Reese Witherspoon romantic come-d y Four Christmases, which were going to try and o verlook), introduces us to each of the horrible bosses with great style and punch off the top. Batemans Nick H endricks, the groups voice of reason, has been toiling a way under sadistic taskmaster Dave Harken (Kevin Spacey in classic sharkm ode) at some generically corporate-techie sweat shop. N ick keeps hoping to be rewarded with a promotion that never comes. S udeikis, as horny accountant Kurt Buckman, actually likes his boss at the chemical company where he works (Donald Sutherland ina cameo) but upon the mans death, his crazy, cokesnorting son, Bobby (Colin Farrell), takes over with idiotic plans that surely willd estroy the place. And Days Dale Arbus, an e ngaged dental hygienist, must endure endless and increasingly explicit sexualh arassment from Dr. Julia Harris (Jennifer Aniston) w hich, as his friends point out, doesnt sound so horrible. (If youre a fan of Its A lways Sunny in Philadelphia, youll be happy to see Day doing a similar brand of clueless man-child craziness.) O ne night, after too many drinks, they hypothetically toss around the idea of knocking off their bosses. In no time this hazy notions nowballs into an actual plan, if you can call it that they g et some guidance from Jamie Foxx as an ex-con who suggests that each guy shouldk ill another guys boss to avoid any suspicious connect ions. (Screenwriters Michael Markowitz and John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein a t least have the decency to acknowledge that theyre stealing their premise from Hitchcocks Strangers on a Train.) F rom there, a series of misadventures and showy performances carries the film through its suitably brief running time to its vaguely satis-f ying conclusion. Playing against type, Farrell is a cart oon character with his bad comb-over and his obsession with kung fu; his house iss uch a garish monstrosity, it must have been a blast for the production designers to piece together. Spacey is in his comfort zone as a command-i ng, condescending jerk; on the opposite end of the spectrum but just as over the top is Aniston, who seems freer than she has in a while as ana ggressive vixen. At the same time, it would have been nice to see the women in Horrible Bosses be in on the joke more often, rather than merely serving ast he target of jokes. Aniston is a one-dimensional nymphom aniac; Julie Bowen, as Spaceys impossibly sexy wife, is a serial adulteress.L indsay Sloane as Dales fiancie is a wide-eyed innoc ent. The only other woman in the cast is an employee Farrells character refers to as Large Marge. As Bridesmaids proved e arlier this summer, women are just as capable of carryi ng this kind of comedy as men when given the chance.IroncladI n the recent British comedy The Trip, Steve Coogan l aments that he, as a comic actor, has never been given the chance to star in a cost ume drama. He improvises a pre-battle speech at the hearth: Gentlemen to bed. We rise tomorrow at 10ish. Ironclad would have s erved Coogans dreams perfectly, and, boy, could the film have used his vitality. Cynically conjured as a kind of medieval , Ironclad is an utterly joyless exercise in blood and dirt. Its set amid the postMagna Carta tumult of 1215 England, where King John( Paul Giamatti) is on a murderous rampage, out for vengeance on those who signed the famous charter. King John is attempting to r eassert control over his country, which has moved to limit his power. In southeast England, a band of rebels endeavor to stop him at Rochester, where a graym onolith of a castle presides. Here the film gathers its c haracters, and here it stops. Director Jonathan English, in his third feature film fol-l owing the likes of Minotaur, naturally uses a l ot of handheld camerawork in monochrome shades to highlight the ugliness of the affair. Much of Ironclad is v iewed through a contemporary lens, exaggerating the 1 3th century battle cry of freedom and common law. This history, in the script byE nglish, Erick Kastel and Stephen McDool, is far from a ccurate. The rebelling barons were not defenders of liberty, buti nstead used the Magna Carta as a political bargaining chip. It would be centuries before t he charter (which was much altered over the years) came t o have any real effect. Rated R for strong graphic brutal battle sequences, and brief nudity.

C M Y K LIVING 10B PAGE News-Sun Friday, July 8, 2011 BYBRIDGETCAREYMiami Heraldhe B in IBM stands for business, not toys. Fred Goetz is 82 now, but he recalls vividly the IBM boards reaction to his teams proposal in 1979. For the worlds leading technology company, which was selling refrigerator-sized mainframe computers worth millions and developing shipboard systems for the space program, an affordable home computer for consumers was little more than a frivolous sidelight. Despite the disdain, the Dirty Dozen Goetz and 11 other engineers in Boca Raton, Fla. were ordered by the companys lame duck CEO to push forward with developing the personal computer. Their work would go far beyond IBMs early staples of adding machines, punch-card readers and typewriters, yet be far more flexible and user-friendly than the hefty cabinet and tabletop workstations that filled the office space of the day. Less than two years later, on Aug. 12, 1981, the first IBM PC was unveiled, leading the world into a new era of home-based computing. The invention put an obscure South Florida vacation town on the map as a business center. And now, though IBM has abandoned the PC business and its presence in Boca has dwindled, its legacy remains in todays robust South Florida tech sector, which owes its origins to the magnetic pull of what was then the worlds pioneering computer maker. As International Business Machines celebrated its 100th birthday in June, former Boca Raton employees looked back with affection on their time at the cutting edge. Big Blue started its Boca operations in temporary offices set in snake-rich scrublands, and by the mid1980s had come to define Boca Raton, with some 10,000 employees in 28 buildings and 4 million square feet of offices and manufacturing space. Todays IBM is a $100 billion vendor of services and behindthe-scenes technologies none of them PCs, an industry now dominated by Dell, HewlettPackard, Toshiba, Acer and Lenovo, which bought IBMs PC business in 2004. So when the teams that created IBMs first PCs gathered in Boca to celebrate the corporate centennial, it was a bittersweet moment. We were kind of disappointed that it all disappeared, Goetz said. But we really felt good about what we did. EARLY DAYS IBM was born in upstate New York in 1911 as CTR, the Computing Tabulating and Recording Co., which specialized in punch cards, commercial scales and clocks. It took the name International Business Machines in 1924, focusing on large calculation and accounting projects, and later went on to invent the first magnetic hard drive in 1956 and the first computer-driven airline reservation system in 1962. The company created the guidance system computers for the U.S. space program at Cape Canaveral, Fla., and the state became familiar ground. When it sought a new location to develop a line of moderately priced computers, Big Blue set its sights on countryside near the newly opened Florida Atlantic University, land frequented by alligators, armadillos, walking catfish and poisonous snakes. They put a guy on the bulldozer with a shotgun because of all the water moccasins, said IBM retiree Angelo Gasparri, who traveled a dirt road from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to get to work. It was a little rural around here. Three years after the Boca branch opened in 1967, FAU approved creation of a college of engineering a fitting complement to the growing local tech sector. Bocas focus was on modestly priced industrial computers until 1977, when industry upstart Apple Computer released its 8-PHOTOS BYWALTER MICHOT/MIAMI HERALD/MCTIBM vice president Rick Qualman and senior vice president Rod Adkins reminisce with IBM retiree Jud McCarthy, Adkinsformer boss, behind the display of old computers. McCarthy, 75, was a hardware project manager in the Boca Raton, Fla. office.

Soon after, IBM CEO Frank Cary told those 12 engineers to come up with a business plan to put IBMs trusted brand behind a home-based personal computer of its own. Frank Cary said he needed to know how we were going to stop Apple from eroding IBMs beaches, Goetz said. Although the board disagreed, Cary who had a year to go in his term as CEO pushed his team to continue, giving the Dirty Dozen $80 million and 11 months. They were sent to a separate office building. We werent allowed to put IBM on the building, Goetz said. If we failed, they didnt want anyone to know we were IBM. To cope with the money and time crunch, the team did something unusual for IBM: They used off-the-shelf parts from other vendors, including Zenith and Epson. The IBM PC hit the consumer markets in 1981, retailing at $1,565. Sales exceeded expectations, hitting a half-million in 18 months. Once we started getting thousands of orders, boy, everyone wanted to get in on the fun and games, Goetz said. We had more vice presidents than we knew what to do with. Another, far more important thing that IBM soon had in abundance was competition. The company committed a blunder, Goetz said, that would help doom its PC dominance: It failed to lock up key components with patents. We got cloned to death, he said. BOOM YEARS Within IBMs vast empire, Boca was hot. Workers from elsewhere wanted to be there, among them Edward Iacobucci, who came from Raleigh, N.C., in 1984 to lead development of a new operating system called the OS/2 in collaboration with a little-known company called Microsoft, headed by a young Harvard dropout, Bill Gates. Journalists were hungry to learn about the work going on at Boca. As writers eavesdropped in bars for the next scoop for the business pages, they would overhear people like Iacobucci talk about such things as multitasking vocabulary that wasnt used before. It probably was the first time in the history of technology where you had technology rock stars, Iacobucci said. Iacobucci later went on to found the Fort Lauderdale tech giant Citrix, which today reports $1.87 billion in revenue and employs 5,000. He has since left Citrix for other technology projects, most recently VirtualWorks Group in Boca. Today Florida is the fourthlargest high-tech employer overall, and leads the country in computer training, according to industry group Tech America. Floridas high-tech payroll was $19.9 billion in 2008, the most recent data available. END OF AN ERA By the start of the 90s, competition from PC clone makers had grown fierce. IBM managers decided South Florida was an inefficient location for manufacturing and shipping. Between 1991 and 1995, manufacturing and engineering moved to the more centrally-located Raleigh branch. Software design talent was transferred to Austin, Texas. As much as people in Boca Raton were disappointed that manufacturing was moving, it was understood it was a business decision that had to be made, said Justin Jud McCarthy, 75, a retired hardware project manager who came to Boca in 1968. Amere 1,500 IBM employees were left in Boca most of them working from home. The 565-acre office was sold. A NEW IDENTITY Today, IBMs more than 420,000 worldwide employees are focused on its Smarter Planet campaign, designed to make sense of the data overload its machines gave rise to, and to manage such real-world problems as traffic jams in Singapore and water quality in Ireland. Its 1,500-member South Florida team works on speech recognition and translation systems. Most recently, they gave a voice to Watson, an artificially intelligent supercomputer that understood the nuances of language well enough to vanquish the TVgame show Jeopardys human champions earlier this year. Things like voice and gestures will play much more of a role in how we interface with computers, said Rod Adkins, senior vice president of IBM systems and technology, whose first job out of college was at Boca in 1981. Boca continues to lead in those interfaces. The South Florida employees of today and the rock stars of yesterday gathered at Bocas Don Estridge High Tech Middle School in June to celebrate IBMs anniversary. The school was named after the man who led the Dirty Dozen. Guests lit up as they admired a table filled with working models of systems from the 80s. Adkins reminisced about the early days with Jud McCarthy, his former boss. In the line-up of machines was one of Adkinsbabies: The IBM P70, a 30-pound portable computer with a built-in case and handle on top. If you look at our history, weve been a company that constantly evolves, Adkins said. We prided ourselves on operating on the innovation edge. Frankly, that was the personality of Boca. Retired employees shared war stories around the vintage printers and systems, as younger IBM blood gawked at the clunky design of orange and green monitors. The elders recalled a side of IBM that is less obvious than its industrial success its generosity toward employees. My kids, my grandkids, theyll probably never see a company that they work for that is going to take care of them and their family, McCarthy said. I raised five kids myself, and I never worried about medical. I never worried about dental. I never worried about whether my check was going to come in. There was a passion to work hard, even through weekends, if the project needed it, he said. And no one questioned that. Our company, IBM, loved us as much as we loved them.IBMs Rod Adkins, senior vice president of systems and technology, admires one of his former projects the IBM P70, a 30-pound portable computer from the late 1980s.
