acquired Harder Hall.
"We con't want to take any
chances," Pat Taylor said
Wednesday, acknowledging a
local legend that previous own-
ers have died in supposedly
mysterious ways.
Although Harder Hall lias
been unoccupied for about 20
years and (barring future con-

Walking through the Great

Wednesday, Taylor discussed
the ghost story.
"All of our experiences indi-
vidually have been positive,"
Taylor said, explaining that he
hasn't been privy to personal
contact with either of the
Spoon sisters. "If they're here,
they've got to be super friend-


As the story goes, Taylor
said. the sisters traveled here
with their fanil, in the 1920s
from New York for vacations.
Eventually, the sisters grew up,
retired and moved into Rooi

penthouses.
"When they died they never
moved out," Taylor said,
explaining he read some of the
lore in old newspaper accounts.

roughly 1 p.m., tellers complained of nausea and other symptoms from a strange smell. The bank closed
for the day while Nichols and Mike McCann, with Highlands County Fire Services, checked the building.
They couldn't find any source of irritation, but bank officials have promised to inform Avon Park Fire

Strange smell, symptoms close bank

AVON PARK Shortly
after lunch Friday, employees at
the SunTrust Bank branch
noticed a strange smell.
Some of them began experi-
encing skin irritation and a cou-
ple of tellers felt nauseous,
according to Kathy Waggoner,
branch manager and vice presi-


dent.
She had gone out on a busi-
ness call and received word
over her cell phone of the prob-
lems.
"I told them to get out of
there," Waggoner said.
When she returned and
entered the building, she felt
her eyes watering and some
dizziness as well, she said.


Reportedly the\ smell seemed
similar to ammonia.
Avon Park police closed off
the parking lot at 601 U.S. 27

were transported to Florida

Traffic deaths may, may not lead to prison time


By PHIL ATTlNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Traffic deaths
hit families and communities
hard.
They can feel worse when
punishment doesn't seem to fit,,.
but charges and punishment in
traffic death cases are never a
certainty.
John Kromholz, assistant
state attorney with the 10
Judicial Circuit, said a traffic
homicide investigation doesn't
mean a driver will get charged
with murder. It depends a lot on
the 'driver's state of mind,
intent, actions and the situation.
Accident/homicide
The first step is when a
Florida Highway Patrol trooper
"changes hats" from taking an
accident report to investigating


The Florida Legislature
wants drivers to be able to
cooperate with law enforcement
to help. sort out a crash scene,
Kromholz said. Therefore, a
trooper can ask questions about
what the wreck to sort it out, but
anything said is not admissible
in court until the trooper reads
Miranda rights to the driver or
witness.
At that point, people have the
right to remain silent.
Careless/reckless
The next step is determining
if someone was careless or
reckless.
One day in February 1998,
Tracy Vanscooter drove south
on Olivia Drive toward Avon
Park. A westbound driver failed
, to stop at a sign on Stryker
Road and hit .her door at 45


Her father, James
McCragage, has contacted leg-
islators and even Governor Jeb
Bush to find out why the driver
only paid a $250 fine and court
costs and. had his driver's
license suspended for a year.
In some wrecks, a driver can
receive a civil citation for care-
less driving. By' Florida.
Statutes, that occurs when
someone operates a vehicle
without being careful with
regard to road width, grade,
curves, corners, traffic and
other circumstances; and by
doing so, endangers others' life
or property.
Reckless driving happens
when a person drives with will-
ful or wanton disregard for 6th-
ers' safety or property. It's a
misdemeanor, with a possible


a death mph. She died on the scene. 90 days in jail.


Branham to be honored with


scholarship on Law Day '06


For reckless driving, the
prosecutor has to prove that a
reasonable person would fore-
see he or she would cause bodi-
ly harm by driving that way,
Kromholz said.
Someone could simply be
non-attentive and cause a
wreck, Kromholz said. It isn't
until someone dies that it
becomes a felony, and even
then, the state must prove a
driver disregarded .others' safe-
ty.
Impaired/distracted
Proving impairment requires
blood tests and/or testimony.
Claude Meus of Sebring, a
truck driver, got convicted
based in part on testimony from
an FHP trooper that he had fall-
en asleep.
The deadly wreck occurred
May 11, 2001, in Hardee
County. Meus swerved to avoid
a head-on wreck, with a white
van at State Road 64 at the State
Road 636 junction. His loaded
trailer overturned, crushing the
van.


A mother and one of her
three daughters died. Two other
daughters survived.
Meus was tried in August
2003, convicted on two counts
of vehicular homicide, and sen-
tenced to two concurrent 15-
year sentences.
Plea/punishment
' At least two family members
don't blame Meus and have
since asked for him to get pro-.
bation.
Kromholz,, who worked on
the case, said Meus was offered
a plea agreement for a lessor
felony charge. Meus, Haitian-
born, feared deportation and
refused, maintaining his inno-
cence and asking instead for a
misdemeanor charge.
Instead, the case went to trial.
Kromholz said no one
thought Meus intended to cause
a wreck. If so, he'd have been
tried for murder.
Law enforcement and the
state attorney's office have
some leeway on what charges to
bring, Kromholz said:


However, once a case goes to
trial, a court is bound by the
verdict and sentencing guide-
lines.
' He said the Florida
Legislature-has set sentences to
ensure identical crimes get
identical punishment.
Similar case?

A wreck on March 2 killed
three members of a local family
and hospitalized four other-
Three family members are still
hospitalized.
* FHP Trooper Larry Coggins
Jr. interviewed Edwin V. Scott,
76, of Eagle'Lake, but doesn't
yet know why Scott ran a stop
sign at the State Road
50/County Road 469 T-junc-
tion.
Scott's loaded semitrailer'
didn't leave any skid marks
before hitting a 1989 Mercury
Grand Marquis, carrying .a
Sebring family'to Brooksville.
Coggins said whatever
charges Scott receives will
depend on results of toxicology'
reports and a vehicle inspection.

of Lake Placid, is- now facing
a warrant charge for violation
of the Florida litter law,
regarding commercial dump-
ing.
He was arrested March 8,
with bail set at $1,000.
At 3:58 p.m. March 3, the
deputy saw a silver Ford
pickup on Guava Road in
Leisure Lakes, in an area
known for illegal dumping.
The truck was parked in
the middle of the roadway,
about 100 yards south of
Northern Boulevard. Hartt
was allegedly standing up in
the bed of the truck, removing
items from it.
When he saw the deputy,
according to complaint affi-"
davits, he jumped out of the
bed and moved to the driver's
side.
When approached and
questioned, he allegedly told
the deputy he had never
dumped anything alongside a
road before then and asked to
have a chance to pick it up.
He allegedly said the truck
was a lease vehicle he had to
clean out before returning the
truck. He told the deputy that
the items included tile left
over from a construction job
and beer that had gotten
warm.
Behind the truck were sev-
eral pieces of scrap tile, sev-
eral full beer bottles, a couple
of pieces of OSB board/ply-

Education, racing to keep ahead of the curve


* First in a series
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING How an indi-
vidual teacher works in a class-
room has changed very little
over the years.
Lawrence Cremin, former
president of Teachers College,
Columbia University, has said
that in education "there is noth-
ing new under the sun."
Teaching strategies, he said,
revolve in. cycles, with each
generation adapting strategies
to new technologies, or to
reflect their immediate con-
cerns. But the same core ideas,
he said, have remained over the
years.
In other words, how a teacher
relates to a student has changed
very little, and the work done in
the one room school house still
holds up today.
However, two things have
changed dramatically: The
number of people being educat-'
ed, and the amount and variety
of subject matter being taught.
Take subject matter.
Just for a start, there is a great
deal more to learn today than
ever before..
In history, for example, an
individual born in 1920 had far


less to learn than someone born
in 1988.
For a student studying histo-
ry in 1938, the bulk of the
German Third Reich's reign of
terror was yet to happen, and
European nations still held
colonies in sway.
But a student studying histo-
ry in 2006, has to learn about
World War II, and Korea,
Vietnam, Bosnia and the first
Gulf War. Not to mention hav-
ing to learn about all those new
nations, formerly colonies,
which became independent in
the last half of the 20th century.
And the sciences are just as
far advanced, with break-
throughs and more sophisticat-
ed theories. Think how much
more we've learned about
chemistry since 1945.
But even more challenging
than the increase in subject mat-
ter, is the larger number of peo-
ple passing through schools
today. Part of that larger num-
ber is simply more people -
here in Highlands County alone
the school population has
increased from 7,895 students
in the 1987-88 school year to
12,212 at February's count.
But the, larger enrollments
also include students, like those


with special needs, who would
have never attended school in
the past, and even more stu-
dents who would have left
school after only a few years.
For example, as late as the
beginning of the 20th century,
education was still the reserve
of a privileged minority. The
majority of individuals left for
the work force before even
attending high school.
If a person had basic reading
skills and could do basic arith-
metic that was enough knowl-
edge to get by in the world. For
generations, the great majority
of employment opportunities
didn't require specialized learn-
ing, or were the type of work
now done by machines.
To be an effective citizen,
employed in today's competi-
tive, highly technical world,
people need a much more
sophisticated education.
For example, even as recent-
ly as 1950, according to figures
used by Joanne Cochlin, coordi-
nator of secondary programs,
unskilled labor made up 60 per-
cent of the work force.
But by 1991 unskilled labor
had shrunk to only 35 percent
of the total work force, and by
2000, made up .only 15 percent


(interestingly, professional
labor has remained constant at
20 percent).
But the point is, educators
say, that with the work market
rapidly changing, and occupa-
tions requiring more and more
specialized knowledge, what
schools teach is having to
change as well.
And more than that.
Because technology creates
rapid changes, business and
social structures evolve to keep
pace. This means companies
often add new technologies, or
fluctuate in size or organization,
which means people move
more often from one job to
another.
This means that long after
they've left school, people
today have to continue to mas-
ter greater amounts of knowl-
edge, more quickly..
In other words, it is more
important than ever that people
become lifelong learners. So
schools have the added respon-
sibility of insuring their gradu-
ates leave, with the skills and
ability to adapt to change.
These new responsibilities
affect educators everywhere,
not just here in Highlands
County, or even the United


States alone.
But here in Florida, schools
are also affected by the history.
of the state's educational poli-
cies, which include earlier neg-
lect, so that teachers, adminis-
trators and school boards are
having to resolve some prob-
lems unique to the state.
Add to that the tensions cre-
ated by the question of who
should develop policy, and the
issue of local control.
Keeping up with those
changes, and understanding
how school systems and indi-


vidual classrooms work, are
essential to making informed
decisions, as is a sense of his-
torical context.
Therefore this begins an
occasional series of articles
which will describe what is
taught in public schools, by
whom, when and how.
An extended interview, in
late 2005, with Dr. Anne
Lindsay, director of curriculum
and instruction for Highlands
County schools, forms the main
structure for the series.

Bullock and Golebiewski


selected as Sebring's top fans


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING For the first
time, co-winners have been
selected as the Sebring Fan of
the Year.
John Bullock of West Palm
Beach and Norbert
Golebiewski of Miami tied in
the voting by our panelists.
"As usual, our selection com-
mittee had a difficult time
choosing the winner," Sebring
Raceway President and General
Manager Tres Stephenson said.
"Both of this year's winners are
certainly deserving of the
honor. Every year we receive
hundreds of nominations ... its
amazing how many devoted
Sebring fans there are across
the country and around the
world!"
Bullock first attended
Sebring in 1963, and has only
missed one race since then
when he had a military reserve
requirement 42 Sebring
races in total (that's 504 hours
at Sebring).
Bom in Buffalo, N.Y., he
went to high school in New
Jersey and then graduated from
Duke University. He lived in
Miami many years but he is
now a resident of West Palm
Beach.
"My favorite location at
Sebring is the Hairpin turn,"
Bullock said. "At my first race


my friend George had the use of
a truck parked on the outside of
the hairpin, as Green Park was
not open to spectators until
1966 ... In recent years'the track
improvements have been won-
derful. The hotel, new pits,
bridges, viewing mounds, tram
service, better rest rooms,
improved parking areas and
corporate displays all make for
a very enjoyable time."
When attending the races,
Bullock stays with his Duke
fraternity brother George
Hensley and his wife Nancy.
George is currently mayor of
-the city of Sebring.
Bullock is a serious collector
of Sebring memorabilia and has
programs, tickets, buttons,
patches, T-shirts and many
other items from the 12-hour
classic.
"In my life-time I have
attended many, many sporting
events, however I can honestly
say that the 12 Hours of Sebring
is my favorite event- of all
time."
Norbert "Pidge"
Golebiewski has attended every
Sebring race since 1970, with
the exception of 1984 when he
had open-heart surgery. Born in
Baltimore, he served in the
United States Navy and eventu-
ally moved to Miami.
Pidge started bringing his


children and grandchildren to
the race when they were 8 years
old, and they still attend the
race and now bring his grand-
daughters, Katie and Lucy, with
them.
He has a following of fellow
fans and campers who appreci-
ate his hospitality and friend-
ship. Golebiewski met many of
his Sebring friends via the inter-
net racing forum (Club
Arnage), and as a result- he
camped with them when he
attended Le Mans. His full
English breakfast, which he
cooks and offers to anyone has
become a Sebring legend.
How dedicated is
Golebiewski? Even though a
few years ago he was in pain
and facing hip replacement sur-
gery, he came to Sebring to
make sure his friends had ample
camping gear and supplies.
As one of his devoted fol-
lowers told us: "It is great to see
him every year. I- know he
would be absolutely, delighted
to be Sebring Fan of the Year.
He certainly deserves this
honor!"
The Sebring Fan of the Year
has been awarded since 2000,
and is made in the memory of
legendary Sebring race fan "Big
"Stan" Durrance, who ,passed
away in 1999.

Local student chosen for

national concert band


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK 'Jeremiah
Lambright, a junior at Avon
Park High School, has been
playing the alto saxophone for,
seven years.
Currently a member of the
school's Grenadiers Marching
Band, he began his musical
career while a student at Avon
Park Middle School.
He plays "for the joy of it,"
and has no intention of becom-
ing a musician. Even so, over
the years he has become profi-
cient enough to have earned
special recognition.
For example, last December
he was chosen to be part of the
Tri-State Honor Band, made up
of high school musicians from
Florida, Alabama and Georgia.
Now he has been selected for
an even greater honor, given the
opportunity to join the Sound of
America Honor Band and
Chorus.
The group is made up of high
school musicians and singers
from all 50 states. Its object is a
six-country concert tour of
Europe, culminating in a fea-
tured performance at
Disneyland Paris in France.
The concert band and chorus,
made up of about 85 instrumen-
talists and 125 singers, will also
perform in Austria, Germany,
Italy, ,Luxembourg and
Switzerland.
Prior to leaving for the 25-
day concert tour, the students
will spend four days in inten-
sive rehearsals at Gettysburg


College beginning June 30, and
return to their homes July 24.
'Lambright was invited to
audition and had to submit a
CD.
Sound of America is a pri-
vate, non-profit, tax-exempt
organization, which selects stu-
dents with musical ability, and
who have also shown good
moral character.
It has been endorsed by many
of America's leaders, including
the late President Ronald
Reagan, both President Bushes,
and Senator Hillary Clinton.
The organization, headquar-
tered in Pennsylvania, is cele-
brating its 30th anniversary.
Lambright is thrilled with the
opportunity, especially as. this
will be the first chance he has
ever had to travel. He will cele-
brate his 18th birthday on July
16 while in La Chaux De
Fonrds, France.
According to information
from Sound of America, "stu-
dents who have qualified for
The Sound of America mem-
bership ate responsible for all
costs involved with the trip.
Frequently, however, local
businesses and civic clubs who
have an interest in helping
deserving students, will offer
some financial sponsorship to
the student representing their
community."
The Lambright family hopes
to find that kind of support. The
trip costs $5,000 and must be
paid in full by June 1.
Donations will be gratefully


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Jeremiah Lambright will take his seven years experience on the alta
saxophone with him this summer as a member of the Sound of
America Honor Band and Chorus. The member of Avon Park High
School's Marching Grenadier Band will join other high school musi-
cians on the European tour.

ers" look into the high-tech
world of ALMS racing.
Sebring's "Gallery of
Legends" exhibit in the pad-
dock is open daily and will fea-
ture a display of racing photo-
graphs and several vintage
sports cars including Ferrari,

ing the famous hairpin turn,

event is the legendary five-time
Le Mans winner Derek Bell.

be home to the Bacardi Red Hot
Road Trip, with added attrac-
tions such as the ALMS drivers

Crackin' a whip

Raymond McIntyre, the Highlands County property appraiser,
gets ready to show an Elderhostel audience how to handle a
cow whip recently at South Florida Community College's
Highlands Campus in Avon Park. The demonstration was part
of a discussion McIntyre gave on Cracker cowboys, those
rugged men who herded tattle in a bygone era and were
rumored to have gotten their nickname from the sharp pop-
ping sound they made with their whips. SFCC participates in
Elderhostel, an international program that gives older people
access to liberal arts educational opportunities through travel.

HARDER
Continued from 1A

Inside the old building on
every floor, construction work-
ers plied their respective trades
in various stages of improving,
renovating or restoring the
hotel cutting wood, painting
bathrooms, or applying
Venetian plaster.
Phil Banks, of Restoration
Fine Art of New York, was on
a mobile lift applying Venetian
plaster to pillars in the Banquet
Room.
Taking a break and lowering
himself to floor-level, Banks

said the process dates back to
the painting of the Sistine
Chapel.
"It goes on so well and it
gives you a beautiful finish,"
he said. "The older it is the
more beautiful it gets."
Banks said the Venetian
plaster absorbs carbon monox-
ide, a chemical process that
will harden and improve the
finish overtime.
Elsewhere, a painter
removed plastic dust covers
from a bathroom in a small
standard-sized room.
"We wanted to do something
different because the bath-
rooms are so small,'' Taylor
said as he showed off the black


and white bathroom. "We were
trying to give it a special feel."
The water closets, lined with
white floor tiles inlaid with
smaller black tiles, feature
black counter tops with raised
chrome faucets and raised,
white bowl-type sinks.
The white bathtubs are bor-
dered by black walls, con-
tributing to the contrasting
theme of the bathrooms, a '
space for which Taylor has an
affinity.
"This is an ultra-modem
bathroom," he said.
Taylor didn't want to'discuss
room rates, noting that compet-
ing hotels are eager to know
those numbers too.

'I think this is one of the best views in Highlands County,' developer Pat Taylor said Wednesday as he

To all of you who wrote or

was gone, thank you.
Your prayers and good
wishes absolutely helped.
But that didn't surprise me.
What did catch me off guard
was the number of people who
took the time to let me know
they were thinking of me.
To all of you, it is good to
be back slower than before
and slightly on edge because I
have gone 10'weeks and five
days without a cigarette, after
smoking a pack a day. But on
the whole, I am healthy (well,
I've gained 15 pounds), able to
breathe, and definitely -glad to
be here.
A special thank you to the

Hospitals run on teamwork


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun.
SEBRING Consider the situation.
An individual arrives in the emergency
room of a hospital in a state of distress.
They may or may not be conscious, or
able to speak, or aware of their sur-
roundings. Whatever the case, they are
bound to be under stress, and not at their
best.
And sometimes the need for treatment
is urgent, so there is no time to waste. Or
more than one person needs immediate
attention at the same time.
Add to that pressure the fact that, typ-
ically, the hospital staff is seeing these
patients for the first time.
Even if a patient can answer ques-
tions, or has a family physician who can
inform the emergency room doctor, all
too often, those emergency room doctors
have to diagnose and treat patients based
on the work done at the moment.
I That means intake procedures are of
crucial importance. They can only be
done by a flexible and well-drilled med-
ical care team.
Tests and treatments vary with each
patient, depending on the type and sever-1
ity of the complaint. That is why most
emergency rooms have a triage program
in place. Triage is a process for sorting
people based on their need for medical
attention.
Take, as a sifigle example, someone
having difficulty breathing.
There are levels of difficulty to be
noted. If someone can breath on their
own, albeit with difficulty, that is one
thing. If someone arrives needing imme-
diate oxygen, that's another.
But there are other facts that have to
be determined.
For instance, difficulty breathing may
signal an actual breathing problem, or it
may be a secondary) condition, the result*
of another, perhaps even more serious

failure (because the lings fill with
water).
To determine which is the case, or if
the problem is something else all togeth-
er, the doctor relies on the data provided
by the emergency room team, his or her
own observations, and the input of the
patient's physician.
In the case of impaired breathing,
where the cause could be any of a myri-
ad of reasons, in addition to collecting a
patient's temperature, blood pressure,
heart rate and respirations, a separate
blood test-for blood gases (which is col-
lected by a respiratory therapist), and a
chest X-ray are often ordered. Additional
blood tests looking for the white blood
cell count, or other factors,, are often
ordered at this time as well.
This means that a patient will have

Center, Jerome Toporek took over as
director of the emergency room about
two months ago. He is a registered nurse
with a masters degree. "T'm in charge of
the daily management of the unit," he
explained.
The doctors take the data Toporek's
team puts together, and consult one
another. They then decide if a patient
should be admitted into the hospital or.
sent home.

THOUGHTS
Continued from 13A
home to rest, which is how
(after another three weeks) I
finally got better.
Even so, it took another
month to ease my way back
into the harness of work.
Each week I've been able to
pull a heavier load, but it has
only beep about two weeks
now that I've worked at my
pre-collapse pace.
Because it often calls on me
to actually work (sometimes
Ss[renuousi\ I Tuffin' It With
ITuffley WaS held back lia Jat.
N, Mh editor took Additionai
pity on me and suggested I
make use of my week in the
hospital to write about the var-
ious medical specialties found,
there, and I've done that in the
accompanying story.
But as I recovered, lying in
bed, with only the weather
channel and "Law & Order"
reruns to distract me, a great
mystery of the universe came
to my attention. I pass it on to
you without having made any
effort to answer the question.
I am referring to the hospital
bill and please remember,
this hospital bill business is not
unique to Highlands Regional
at all.
But here is how my bill
broke down. I was, charged,
$18,360.13 under the title of
total charges.
From that was deducted the
$750 insurance deductible I
had to pay just to get into the
hospital.
Then there was a second.
deduction of $11,387.51 that


was listed as "HMO/PPO con-
tractual adjustment."
That left an insurance pay-
ment of $5,538.01 to the hos-
'pital, and a bill of $684.61 to
me.
I have discovered my insur-
ance company is going to
rebate $250 of the original
$750. That means I will have
paid $1,184.61 toward a bill of
$18,360.13. You'll get no com-
plaints from me about that.,
But I have to wonder what
is going on here, because in
the end the hospital received a
total of $6,722.62 for a bill
thaltt jis nearly three uimefs that
. am ountlt I . '
SNowAif it reallytok ,
$18,360.13 to treat, feed and
house me, how can any hospi-
tal stay in business by collect-
ing only a fraction of what the
stay cost?
I don't know, and can't fig-
ure it out.
I remember a television chef
once saying to beware of com-
plicated recipes. He said that
many ingredients usually
meant the cook tasted his way
through, adding new spices to
correct earlier mistakes.
This hospital bill business
reminded me; of that some-
thing which has become hope-
lessly complicated, because at
the core it just isn't right.

Next week Christopher
Tuffley is back on the line,
wrapping sandwiches at
Quizno's, while looking at
owning a franchise. '

A new generation of clowns (above) puts on a happy face during
Clown College, an Elderhostel program held recently at South
Florida Community College's Highlands Campus in Avon Park.
Instructors from the Toby the Clown School in Lake Placid led the
informal five-day course. The clowns-in-training learned the tricks
of the trade, from making costumes and balloon animals to perform-
ing in parades and on stage. Elderhostel, an international, not-for-
profit organization, has been providing liberal arts learning oppor-
tunities to older adults since 1975. The head and ears of a
Dachshund emerge as Pat 'Bubbles' Rich (below) practices the art of
balloon sculpture. This was one of the new skills she picked up while
attending a week of Clown College. Telling the tale of 'The Little
Snake Who Hissed in the Pit,' Martha 'Mayday' Harrop (right) gets
a feel for working an audience. The student clowns developed skits
and shared them with their peers before graduating from Clown
College.

AVON PARK Local clog-,
gers, Feet of Flames from Step
by Step Dance Studio, recently
returned home with winnings.
The group competed at the
Florida State Fairgrounds in
Tampa and brought home two
'third place team trophies and

Team director Selena Leal
has formed three separate
groups: Lil' Feet of Flames,
Junior Flames and Senior
Flames. The youngest dancer is
9 and the oldest is 21 years of
age. Leal requires each dancer
to compete in a freestyle solo
competition categorized by
,age. This gives each dancer the
opportunity to express their
own style of dance.
The sponsors that every
dancer has received have gra-
ciously helped fund alfl entry
fees for each competition.
Those sponsors are Alan Jay
Automotive, Florida Soaps &
Candles, Everlasting
Memorials & Monuments,
Sandra Isaac, Millers Produce,
Best Insurance, TND Septic,
Wells Insurance, Julie Nichols,
Kelly Lawrence, Siephenson-
Nelson Funeral Home, Pat and
Linda. Connelly, Union
Congregational Church and Dr.
Vinod Thakkar.
If anyone would like any
information on this group or
clogging, contact Leal at 381-
9764 or Step by Step Dance
Studio.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Meet


yourself
Tests and trials hurt.
They don't fit our active
life styles or plans. And,
they can be so confusing.
"Why?" becomes the
operative question.
I recall when we discov-
ered that the atmosphere in
our home was killing my
husband, Ken. The dirt
crawl space under the house
produced a moldy atmos-
phere that was neither odi-
ous nor visible. But, it was
a potent destroyer of Ken's
health.
Consequently, the doctor
ordered him to move out
until we could sell the
house a house we had
hoped to inhabit for a long
time. It was our "honey-
moon" house as my friend
used to call it.
This unexpected set of
circumstances made me feel
like I was back to being a
single parent with not one,
but three young boys. Why
hadn't we figured this prob-
lem out before we bought
the house? I angrily
thought. Loneliness 'crept in
and chilled me to the bone.
These and other emotions
surfaced and threatened my
inner peace. I looked in the
mirror and didn't like the
tight-lipped, taught expres-
sion looking back at me.
I'd been through trials
before, but figured they
were alljn the past. This
was a new life and I wanted
it to go smoothly. But, this
latest mountain proved me
wrong. Once again I was
meeting myself in adversi-
ty;-not liking %%hat I saw;
and, needing to make some
adjustments.
Recently, a church' sign
prompted me to think back
on that time. It said,
"Adversity introduces you
to yourself."
How true. Trials don't
necessarily make us or
break us; but, rather reveal
our character. And in the
revealing process, we may
not like what we see. But,
as a Christian, that is the
perfect time to ask God to
change what needs chang-
ing and help us perfect our
character according to his <
nature living within us.
"His divine power has
given us everything we
need for life and godliness
throughthese he has given
us his very great and pre-
cious promises, so that
through them you may par-
ticipate in the divine
nature." (2 Peter 1: 3a and
4, NIV)
As my focus changed and
I realized that these trials
were proving times-
when what God knew was
in me would be proven
through reliance on him -
then the tense grimace in
the mirror relaxed. My eyes
brightened transforming my
countenance as I began see-
ing our circumstances
through God's eyes and per-
spective. The challenges
became an adventure in
growing and pleasing God
in the process.
Adversity will introduce'
you to yourself; but, let
God introduce his divine
nature as well, so, at these
times, you'll like who you
see in the mirror. Selah.

During a Palm Sunday scene in the 'Story of Jesus,' performers from all over Central Florida rejoice. Florida's Passion Play will open March 24 in %auchula.


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News Sun correspondent
WAUCHULA
lorida's Passion Play makes
a return to the arena after
repairs were done from the
2003 hurricane season.
This three-hour epic
"Story of Jesus" is a moving portrayal
that has been performed for the past 20
years, with only one interruption from
last year's hurricanes.
Teeming with life, its cast of 300
people and 200 animals grace the new
300-foot set at the renovated
Cattleman's Arena at Hardee County
Fairgrounds. The sheep and shepherds,
the Wise Men on camels, and the
Romans on galloping horses set the
mood of the era. The events are sacred-
ly portrayed and volunteers of all ages
make up the cast. Power & Light
Productions owns and produces the
"Story of Jesus." Its mission is to
spread the gospel of Jesus Christ and
create the best in Christian drama.
Director MNike Graham, pastor of
Real Life Church in Wauchula. has
been involved with the play from its
.start as a simple crucifixion skit involv-
ing a few teenagers, a handful of props
and a cross. Although Graham has por-
trayed Jesus for 20 years, the part of
Jesus is played by seven different indi-
viduals each night. There is one infant,
one 2-year-old, one 12-year-old and
four adults.. The four adults are needed
because of so many elaborate costume
and scene changes. Nearly 300 people
including adults, teenagers and children
fill the other roles. Each person plays. "
from two to four parts during every per-
formance.
"Our production is the result of a lot
of blood, sweat and tears of regular
folks, combined with a tremendous
amount of prayers and faith. I believe it
is a miracle of sorts and, an encourage-
ment that amid all the bad ndws of our
world there are still a lot of people
doing some amazing and good things,"
Graham said.
Churches of all denominations are
encouraged to participate. Ben Turner
and Ross Anderson, who are actors with
Highlands Little Theatre in Sebring,
and Jackie Losey, also from Sebring.
Joy Rogers, of Avon Park, and Donna
Wilson and Danielle Stedman, both of
Lake Placid, are just a few of the peo-.
ple participating from Highlands
County.
Some Highlands County churches are
represented. Churches participating in
Avon Park are Walker Memorial
Seventh-day Adventist, Our Lady of
Grace Catholic Church, Community
Bible Church, Highlands Community
Church and Florida Avenue Baptist
Church. Bible Fellowship Church in
Sebring and World Life Church, Placid
Temple Church of God and First Baptist
Church of Lake Josephine, all of Lake
Placid are represented.
One family of volunteers from
Sebring is Dr. Olga Garcia Luepschen'
and her daughters Sara, 6, and Rebecca,
11. They are members. of First Baptist
Church of Lake June.

ate the three center stages. The outer
buildings and gates are free-standing
structures. Ornce ever- piece is in place,
the set is backfilled \itlh dirt and land-
scaped with all li\e plants and trees,
some towering 25 feet in height. A cast
of horses. camels, sheep, goats. turkeys,
chickens, ducks, pigeons and does
appear throughout the performance.
Special effects include smoke, fire,,
explosions, fog, rain, flying angels, rac-

story.
These committed Christians come
from all over Central Florida to pour
out their hearts and souls, and to make
the Bible come to life on the stage. This
they do not for self-glory or finan-
cial gain but for the true love of the


Villagers comfort Jesu,, after he a-_ pulled dom n from thie cross during the crucifixion
scene in Passion PI.a



Arena reopens for



'Story of Jesus' after



hurricane damage


"This is my first year participating.
In the marketplace scene, I sell bread,
while others offer fish, etc. The children
are present and doing normal activities
for their age. Later the shepherds .pass
through with their sheep. The set, the
biblical accuracy, and the special effects
create a humbling awareness among all
the performers of the sacredness por-
trayed. It's because they are living his
story," Olga Luepschen said. "This is
my daughter Rebecca's second time in
the 'Passion Play.' She talked the rest of
us into being in it this year. I even tem-
porarily adopted some other girls who
needed a mother while in the play."
". This is my sixth year with the play,"
said Debra McNely, a member of
Highlands Community Church in
Sebring. "When I first moved here from
Ohio, I prayed that I be led to a good
church. I attended a New Year's service
and got involved with the play right
away. My daughters have been in it
since-.they were 4 and 5."
Cynthia and Greg Knowles and their
daughter Megan, 11, and Garrett, 9,
also are part of the play. Cynthia said
she was taking a sign language course
at the college and came to Wauchula for
extia credits. Someone asked her if she
was interpreting for the "Passion Play."
When Cynthia explained that she had a
family, she discovered that was no
problem: Everyone was invited to par-
ticipate.
"This is our third year, and we wear
dark makeup for the performances, so


we get out old sheets and towels to pro-
tect our car, etc. from being stained, My
son has Downs syndrome and is so into
this. It's a wonderful experience for
him. This is something our whole fami-
ly can experience together and we will,
remember forever," Knowles' said.
Everyone involved is impressed with
the magnitude and caliber of this pro-
duction. There are more than 200 props
and 1,500 costumes used. The 300-foot
set is built on eight semitrailers to cre-


Several villagers line the streets waiting for Jesus to perform miracles.

Country Music Hall of Famers to


kick off summer series at SFCC


AVON PARK South
Florida Community College
kicks off its Summer Series
with legendary country singers,
Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin
Brothers.
The concert will be at 7:30
p.m. Saturday, May 13, in the
SFCC auditorium, Highlands
campus.,
"Following the success of
last year's Three Dog Night
concert, this series is designed
to raise funds for needed SFCC
Auditorium renovations," Dean
of Cultural Programming Doug
Andrews, said. "We also hope
to serve' a different segment of
our community by bringing this
performance to our auditori-
um."
More than 40 ears ago,
Larry, Steve, and Rudy Gatlin
started singing in their home-
town of Abilene, Texas, and
from there they went on to
make music history. Over the
course of a four decade career
that has taken The Gatlin
- Brothers from dusty Texas
stages to White House perform-
ances, 'from Broadway to
Grammy Awards, to the top of
the country charts, there has
been one unifying element:
music.
In the early 70s, Larry Gatlin
moved to Nashville to write
songs that would be recorded
by names like Johnny Cash,
Kris Kristofferson, Barbra
Streisand, Tom Jones, and Elvis
Presley.
In 1972, Gatlin landed a solo
deal with Monument Records
through friend Kris
Kristofferson and invited his
siblings up to Nashville to sing
backup on his first two albums
--1974 "The Pilgrim" and
1975 "Rain Rainbow." The
release of "The Pilgrim" landed
Gatlin his first hit with "Sweet
Becky Walker," and then found
himself at number one on the
charts the next year with
"Broken Lady," a song that cap-
tured him a Grammy in 1976.
The same year all three brothers
were inducted into the Grand
Ole Opry. The success of
1977's "High Time" record fea-
turing the number one hit, "I
Just Wish You Were Someone I
Love," encouraged the brothers
to become an official trio, and
in 1979 they signed a group
deal with Columbia Records.
Over the next decade, the broth-
ers scored more than a dozen
Top 10 hits. It was also in 1979
that Larry Gatlin won the
American Country Music's Top
Male Vocalist, "Straight
Ahead" won Album of the Year,
and "All The Gold In
California" won Single of the
Year.
Two levels, of sponsorships
are available for this perform-

Irish-American Heritage Month



toe taps into Sebring Library


March is Irish-American
Heritage Month, so it's natural
to wonder just what is the her-
itage that the Irish.,immigrants
brought with them to America.
The origins of the people
called Celts (a hard k sound),
seems to be Italian or from the
Alps mountains region near the
Po valley.
The warrior tribes confronted
not only the Etruscans, but also
Rome itself, and won serious
concessions as documented in
"The Early History 'of Rome."
Did you know that Roman his-
torian Diodorus described them
as bleached blondes? And, yes,
they often went into battle
minus any clothing.
The Celtic immigration from
Europe included settlement of
Ireland, Scotland, the Isle of
Man, and Wales. Their history
is one of many wars between
families for power and land,
extending across the Irish Sea
into Britain.
Read about their rich history
and continuing influence in
"The Age of Arthur: a History'
of the British Isles From 350 to
650;" "Celtic Warriors, 400
BC-1600 AD;" "The Celts:
Conquerors of Ancient
Europe;" "Celts: Europe's


People of Iron;"
"From Mist and
Stone: the History and
Lore of the Celts and
Vikings;" "Celtic
Gods and Heroes;"
"The Celts: the People
Who Came Out of the
Darkness;" or "Myths
and Legends of the
Celtic Race."
The dances and
instruments of their
Celtic heritage, even
today, heavily influ-
ence the music of

Ireland. You can enjoy their
mesmerizing melodies in our
CD collection: "Fire in .the
Kitchen;"' "The Lonesome
Touch;" "The Magic of the
Celtic Harp;" "Naadurra" and
"Celtic Echoes," among others.
Irish dancing was once con-
sidered rather quaint and out-
moded, good only for local fes-
tivals and tourist "color." All
that changed in 1996 with the
production in an Irish theatre of
"Riverdance," with its flamboy-
ant lead dancer, Michael
Flatley.
The dancers' dazzled their
international audience and were
invited to go on tour, not only in
Europe, but also eventually to


perform a new show
which included the
international dance
group, The Moscow
Folk Ballet
Company,- at the
USA's most presti-
gious venue, Radio
City Music Hall in
New York City. Take
home "Riverdance"
or "Riverdance, the
Show" and don't be
surprised to find
yourself tapping
your feet along with


the dancers..
Michael Flatley moved on to
other dance troupes, continuing
his high-energy type of pro-
gram on stage at the Route of
Kings in London's Hyde Park,
with a stunning Celtic dance.
spectacular which re-told Irish
folk legend.
Check out 'Michael Flatley's
Feet of Flames" for an event
that just. watching will leave
you tired.
.For those raised on the
Arthurian adventures of that
comic strip hero, Prince Valient
and his beautiful, often left-
behind queen, Aleta, the video
'The Arthurian Legends" will
offer colorful tales of the myths


and legends surrounding King
Arthur which are the basis for
this more than 70-year-old
comic strip.
Those same legends are
woven into the fabric of the
series starring a younger hero,
Harry Potter.
Explore his world in our
DVD "Discovering the Real
World of Harry Potter," by fol-
lowing the award winning doc-
umentary filmmakers as they
offer insights to witches, wiz-
ards, Greek gods, ancient Celts,
ghosts, magical creatures,
alchemy, and ancient spells.
You'll find the Harry Potter
tales in regular and large print,
cassettes, DVD, and video.
And if ye have a taste for the
auld country, our travel books
on Scotland, Wales and Ireland
are ready for the taking.

Fertilizing your grass appropriately
can produce a strong healthy lawn with
minimal pollution of ground and sur-
face water. A plush, healthy lawn will
require less chemical controls for
weeds, insects and diseases.
When selecting a fertilizer, look at
the three numbers on the bag. They
will read something like 15-0-15. The
first number is the percentage of nitro-
gen in the bag, the second is phospho-
rous and the third is potassium. Since
most Florida soils are naturally high in

phosphorous, you may not need to apply that ele-
ment, so a 15-0-15 will do nicely.
It is best to apply a fertilizer with slow release
nitrogen as they have less potential to leach or
run-off into our waterways. The bag should be
marked "slow release" or if not, look at the ingre-
dient listing on the back of the bag. Then look for
the amount of nitrogen marked slow release; the
higher the percentage, the less chance of leach-,
ing.
How much fertilizer to apply depends on your
desired level of plushness. If you are applying a
good slow release fertilizer (50.% nitrogen in a
slow release form) you may apply up to one'
pound of nitrogen per 1000 square feet. That
would be 6.6 pounds of a 15-0-15 per application.
When applying, a "drop" spreader is recom-
mended as it gives ,you a more even spread. Try
not to fertilize when heavy rain is expected as this
will increase the potential for run-off and leach-
ing.
In this area of Florida; we recommend fertiliz-
ing twice a year, once in March and then again in
October. To green, your lawn up' in the summer,
without increasing growth, apply chelated iron or
iron sulfate. .
Native trees and shrubs will require minimal
fertilizer, if any. The roots of a mature tree may
extend 60 feet or more out into your lawn; so any
fertilizer you apply to your lawn also fertilizes
the tree. Shrub roots also extend quite a distance

applied to enhance growth. Here again,
do not exceed one pound of actual
nitrogen per application of a good slow
release fertilizer. Maximum recom-
mended yearly application is two
pounds of nitrogen.
Palms have different nutritional
requirements. For palms use a fertilizer
with a ratio of 4-1-6-2 Mg or equivalent
where the last number is for magnesium.
Palms require magnesium along with
other micronutrients such as iron, man-
ganese, zinc, copper and boron. Look for
specialty palm fertilizers and follow the


recommendations on the label.
Citrus. trees also require special micronutrients
or minor elements for good health, so use spe-
tialty citrus fertilizers and follow label recom-
mendations.

Warblers are flitting through

Organizations team up to make rain barrels


As always, there has been a
lot going on in the office lately,
so today is another update to
inform people of some of the
things that might be of interest.
The office has teamed up
with the Master Gardeners and
Florida Yards and
Neighborhoods to have a
"Make a Rain Barrel" work-
shop.
The workshop includes sup-
plies to make the rain barrel.
People just put on the finishing
touches and take the rain barrel
home, set it up, and wait for the
rain to fall.
There is a $10 fee to cover
the cost of -the materials. The
workshop will be held at the
Agri-Civic Center auditorium
between 9 a.m. and noon
Friday, April 7. To register, or
for questions call the office at
402-6545.
There is going to be a very
large booth for Earth Day at
Highlands Hammock State Park
on Saturday, April. Dozens of
different brochures ,will be
handed out related to all sorts of
environmental and agricultural
topics, as well as numerous col-
oring and activity books, and
many novelty items for chil-


dren.
There will also be posters
available for those bare walls.
Freddy the Alligator from the
South Florida Water
Management District
(SFWMD) will also be there to
greet children and hand out
goodies. So come visit.
Florida Ag in the Classroom

The park has agreed to
administer cost share funding
for two other projects for the
Florida Department of
Agricultural and Consumer
Services. Both projects were
created to help reduce sources
of phosphorus loading to Lake
Okeechobee. The first project is
a pilot study to produce a mar-
ketable product from manure
solids from two local dairies.
Currently, disposal of manure
solids is a challenge in ;the
industry.
.The second project is a pilot


study to treat and
store water on private
lands. The adminis-
trative fee that
HSWCD receives
from these projects
will be used to fund
future educational
projects within the
community.

This Healthy Baby Brought to you by the

Highlands Regional Medical Center's '7ew CBeginnings


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Glenn (left) Murphy, of Avon Park, visits with his granddaughter Erin Brownell, daughter Janice
Brownell and grandson Cody Brownell during the recent journey of the Florida Cracker Trail
Association across the state. Glenn and JoyMurphy were inducted into the association's Hall of Fame.

Avon Park couple inducted into Hall of Fame,


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK The Hall of
Fame award for the 2006
Florida Cracker Trail
Association coast to coast ride
was presented to Glenn and Joy
Murphy during the awards
event of the annual re-enact-
ment.
Each year, the association
has honored persons instrumen-
tal in .the preservation of the
history of the' cattle industry
and its long record in the state
of Florida.
The Murphys met at a rodeo,
they recalled during the inter-
view for the 19th annual pro-
gram book of the association.
Both are descended from fami-
lies active in agriculture.
Glenn Oakley Murphy was
one of fiN e children bornmto the
Oakley Murphys in Alturas. He
came into the world June'27,
1929, when his grandfather,
David Enoch Murphy, was a
citrus and vegetable farmer
along with his six children in
Defuniac Springs; The opera-
tion moved into citrus in the
1900s, when they moved to
Alturas.
Soon after, however, Glenn's
family moved to Avon Park in
Highlands County and began
buyng property and stocking it
with Florida cattle.
That operation grew to
include 20,000 acres over time,
with the same home where they
now live on the site. When
Glenn was in ninth grade, his
father took him out of school to
ride out baby calves and doctor
for screwworms.
"Help was scarce at that
time," he recalled.
Drafted into the army in
1951, he met Joy Hawkins at a
rodeo and they. wre married
June 4, 1953. They have raised
their children and now have
grandchildren in Highlands
County.


Residents


to tell tales
AVON PARK Visitors to
the Depot Museum on Sundays
will find something new has
been added: a story-telling
schedule.
Open from 1-3 p.m., the
museum will feature long-time
Avon Park residents presenting
an informal program on their
lives during the 1930s, '40s and
'50s. The programs will be pre-
sented at 1:30 and 2:30 p.m.,
giving visitors time to also see
the various museum exhibits
reflecting highlights of the
city's past.
"With these long-timers
chatting about their early lives,
plus our displays, the museum
on Sunday is now a, "show-
and-tell showplace," Larry
Levey, president of the
Historical Society of Avon
Park, said.
The museum will be open
Sunday through April 9.
Regular museum hours are
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday
through Friday and by special
appointment. Tours of the rail-
road dining car are also avail-
able Sundays and through the
week.
For details, call 453-3525.


'Joy's family was farmer-
ranchers and she immediately
blended in with the work pro-
gram necessary for a growing
ranch. Not having baby sitters
when cattle work required all
hands and the cook, she learned
to depend on an old retired cow
horse to provide that service.
Children would play or sleep on
the horse back until the crew
finished working cows and go
to the house, she says.


Glen's cattle knowledge took
him to a post as marketing
agent for the cull beef cows for
Deseret Citrus and Cattle many
years at the Mormon Ranch in
central Florida. As a bonded
cattle broker, he was a familiar
face at most markets,.
During that time the couple
joined the Jesus Christ Church
of the Latter Day Saints, where
Glenn still serves as a high
priest and elder.

':" A responsibility to

S rMA 0 help those who need it


Eating disorders need long-term treatment


By SARAH BROUILLARD
Sebring High School
Many disorders can be con-
trolled with medication, but eat-
ing disorders, such as anorexia
nervosa, bulimia nervosa and
binge-eating need long-term
treatment. Like many other dis-
orders and diseases, the earlier
you catch it, the easier it is to
treat and be cured.
So what are these eating dis-
orders, and how serious can
they get?
Anorexia nervosa or com-
monly known as anorexia is
when a person is obsessed with
being thin and are terrified of
gaining weight. People who
have anorexia usually avoid
eating, eat small amounts,
weigh their food, constantly


Girls try to get
'the perfect body'
By KAYLA PHILLIPS
Sebring High School
Long legs, tiny tight waists,
and a beautiful complex-ion are
the features desired by most
women these days. It seems as
though makeup lines and fash-
ion industries are constantly
coming up with new ways to
make every woman "perfect,"
but in reality they are making
%\omen feel bad about who
the\ recall are
When most women see a
size three lady with beautiful
skin on television talking about
a new kind of makeup we auto-
matically think, "'\\ I could
look like that if I had that kind
of makeup." Advertisement
agencies know this, so of
course they constantly use the
same thin. "proportioned well"
kind of women to sell their
products.
Women aren't the only ones
who are always trying to keep
up with the desired look of
today's society. Men also
undergo scrutiny for either
being too fat, or too skinny, or
for not having a muscular
build. When people are con-
stantly hearing or seeing that
the way they look isn't good
enough, it often leads to serious
health problems.
Many people try to lose that
extra stomach fat by working
out and going on diets, but
there is a fine line between
being healthy and endangering
your life. Men and women
alike want to look like the
Hollywood stars who seem to
have the perfect lives and the
perfect bodies, but even they
feel 'the pressure to strive for
the perfect look.
Lindsay Lohan and Mary-
Kate Olsen are perfect exam-
ples of stars who have tried to
achieve the perfect bodies and
ended up with an eating disor-
der. This can happen to, anyone
who tries to go to the extreme
to obtain the "perfect body."
It's good to work out and
watch your daily intake of
sweet and fatty foods, but don't
lose control. Listen to your
body when it tells you you're
hungry. It's OK to eat, but be
smart about it and eat healthy.


count the calories they eat, and
exercise excessively.
Usually, these people are
extremely thin, but seem to
think that they're overweight
and need to lose weight. They
may deny being hungry,
become sensitive to cold tem-
, peratures, lose scalp hair, seem
to always be in a bad mood, and
have dry skin.
The treatment for anorexia is
very difficult since the patients
seem to think there is nothing
wrong with them. If {he disor-
der is serious, the person may
be in the hospital for up to a
year and may need counseling.,
People who have bulimia
nervosa eat excessive amounts
of food in a short amount of
time and immediately make.


themselves vomit or take laxa-
tives or water pills so they don't
gain weight. This is often
referred to as a "binge/purge
cycle."
This can cause digestive
problems and decaying teeth,
since the acid from vomit cor-
rodes the teeth
Whereas with anorexia ner-
vosa and bulimia neryosa, one
is scared of gaining weight and
becomes 'underweight, the
binge eating disorder causes the
person to become overweight.
Many people think that food
makes them happy, so they con-
stantly eat large amounts of
food. Children can even have
this disorder -
The behavior of eating too
much becomes a normal routine


and soon gets out of control.
To control this disease, the
doctor may prescribe therapy as
a family or counseling. Binge
eating may cause high blood
pressure, heart disease, dia-
betes, gallbladder disease, high
cholesterol, cancer, depression
and anxiety.
All eating, disorders are
extremely serious. If you think
you may have one, make an
appointment with your doctor
immediately. Treatment can
take several months and lots of
counseling, but in the long run,
you'll be a happier person.
These disorders can be life
threatening and the earlier you
catch them, the easier it is to
cure.

Teens trading Cabbage


Patch dolls for 'The Patch'


Back in my day
Barbie was the thing.
Nearly every little girl
wanted her own per-
sonal model. The
"My Size Barbie"
was pretty popular as
,well, but Barbie, her
little sister Kelly,' nor
"My Size Barbie" '
were a match for the GEf
Cabbage Patch kids.
What little girl DAv
could resist the com-
forting, softness of Sebri
the dolls' little bodies Sc
or their adorable dim-
ples? Everyone had
their doll of the day and it was
truly an honor to be someone
else's "mommy," but now it is a
serious responsibility.
Teens today have traded their
Cabbage Patch dolls for "The


ORGIA
WKINS

ng High
,hool


Patch." The patch is
a form of birth con-
trol to prevent teens
from manufacturing
their own little dolls.
Whether they pro-
duce dolls or not,
they are still in "the
factory"; they're still
having sex. Why are'
teens turning to sex?
I believe it starts in
the home. Parents
are not showing
.enough affection,
therefore, teens are
Forced to seek affec-
tion elsewhere.


A friend, who is a teen par-
ent, confessed to me that she
purposely conceived a child.
Her reason was if she had a
child they'd have no other
choice but to love her. "When


you' have a child at least you
know someone loves you," she
said.
I have witnessed that most
teens are banning children, and
their maturity levels are forced
to rise rapidly. What kind of
parents will these teens be?
If their parents didn't love
them or show affection and they
turn to sex, then how will they
be able to effectively show their
child affection if they didn't
witness the process in their
home.
Teens are having sex; it is a
reality. Why should teens have
to resort to sex, which opens the
door for other experiments such
as drugs? What ever happened
to abstinence; did it ever exist?
First comes love, then comes
marriage, then comes the baby
in the baby carriage.


By CHRIS LEVERIDGE
Sebring High School
The Middle East is a world
of its own. It is filled with vio-
lence that few dare to defer. It is
corrupted with young people
with ambition and potential. It
is filled with unrestrained sweat
of those threatened by the
hands of wrongdoers.
But most importantly, the
Middle East is filled with inno-
cent people .who suffer at the
hands of unrelenting criminals
who take the lives of those who
pose no threat.
As an individual I could do a
staggering number of things
that might help someone in
need.
As an individual I feel it is a
responsibility to help those who
need it the most. The contribu-
tion may be small or large.
Nevertheless,' the life of that
person would be momentarilyy
sustained. I would most likely
form a dedicated alliance to
help gather food for the starv-
ing families of the Middle East.
The Middle East is prone to
drought due to the unfaltering
dry weather. Though food is'not
such a spectacle, or issue in the
United States. I feel the gift of
food would be an essential
advantageous gesture to per-
haps save the life of people
young and old..
Moreover, unconditional
love is given and shown in


Money! Money!
Money! This seems
to be the only thing
running through
many students'
minds. It could be the
luxury of having
extra money aside
from allowances. In
many cases, students
are making the
money without mak-
ing the grade.; Or
maybe the need for'
money stems from
the responsibilities of
gas and cell phones.
Whatever the case

Sch"


may be, more and more stu-
dents are keeping an e e out for
the "Now Hiring" sign. The
legal working age in Florida is
16, and despite this young age,
it's not keeping anyone back
from trying to make a little
extra cash.
I, for one, work three jobs. I
work at Blockbuster in Sebring
and two regular baby-sitting
jobs on Wednesday nights and
Sunday mornings. This is
enough for me, but there are
many other students who work
just as much or more.
Now here's the question:
Should students be allowed to
work during the school year?
Well, realistically many have
to, there is no question about it.
Nonetheless it is still a serious
concern that students who are
making the money may not be
making the grade. Also, it
appears that some sports and


many of the families here in
America. Love is eternal the
gift that keeps on giving.
Hundreds of people are dis-
creetly killed each day. These
people are mothers, fathers,
grandmothers, grandfathers,
uncles,, aunts, and relatives of
those who have nothing to live
for. These people are the hope,
the happiness, and reason for
waking each day.
While these people are mur-
dered daily, the relatives mourn
and eventually commit suicide.
I would feel it robbery not:to
send a card or poem to these
particular people.
Furthermore, I would give
the priceless gift of prayer. The
gift of prayer is eternal and
effective.
I think the people of the
Middle East need prayer the
most. The world they live in is
so desolate arid violent. I would
,pray for peace and tranquility,
'happiness and longevity.
It is priceless to help another
person.
I also believe prayer changes
things and it is with that faith
that encourages myself and oth-
ers.
The Middle East is truly
something everyone should be
concerned with. The people are
poor and it is up to the fortunate
to help them. If not you, then
who? If only...


I f other organizations
-. and clubs are suffer-
ing as well. Students
are too busy working
four to 10 shifts that
they aren't able to
attend after-school
activities and aren't
leaving much room
for homework.
IN There aren't many
CAS alternatives for try ing
- il 0to make J little e\xtr.

Hlh grow on trees." -
A lot of these stu-
denis are committed
to their jobs. which is,
great. They are beginning the'
process of reliability for their ,
future jobs, which in turn bene-
fits them.
Still, the question remains,
are these students hindering
their learning process and
future educations?
Many students have been
working for so long and have
begun to make sufficient
money for the here and now
that they decide they do not
need any higher education.
They feel that as soon as they
receive a manager's position
that college is no longer neces-
sary.
Is this really the outcome that
parents are anticipating from
their students' job experiences?
Truthfully, I think not. A job
is not a career and without
higher education, students will
not be able to fulfill a career.

can help

students find

college funds

A conservative estimate of
college costs for a full-time stu-
dent runs from $10,000 to
$30,000; high cost.colleges can
run from $40,000 to $100,000.
Most parents and students
think that scholarships are only
for the students with, excellent
grades, low-income families or
the athletically inclined. A
small example of the numerous
scholarships available to -stu-
dents include: Handicapped
Student Scholarships,
Members of a Church
Scholarships, Scholarships for
"C" Students, Veteran
Children's Scholarships,
Scholarships for Minorities and
much, much more.
Though the majority of
scholarships are from the feder-
al government and are
merit/and or need-based, mil-
lions of dollars are available to
students from private sector
scholarships. Much of private
sector financial aid goes
unused because the parents and
students do not know how or
where to apply.
There are organizations that
have spent hundreds of hours in
research locating scholarship
sources. The U.S. Commission
for Scholastic Assistance -
College Bound is such an
organization and supplies the
public with more than 1,000
different private scholarship
sources. The Scholarship list
includes the scholarship names,
addresses, application dead-
lines, summaries about the
scholarships and the amount
the scholarship will pay chil-
dren.
Many scholarships pay the
entire tuition; others can be


applied toward tuition, living
expenses and/or other fees.
Most scholarships can be used
at junior colleges, career and
vocational schools, four-year
colleges, graduate schools,
medical and law schools.

these scholarship lists, send a

I've been think-
ing a lot about the
case of Jay
Bennish, the
teacher who was


recorded making
some major anti-
Bush statements in his class.
The recording has been played
all over the Internet and has
created a media firestorm. The
student who recorded the
teacher has been praised and
reviled. The teacher has been
suspended and has filed a law-
suit over it, claiming his First
Amendment rights were at
stake. And days after the story
broke, it's still in the news.
I almost missed the first part
of the story because I was trayv-
eling. Don and I went to
Tennessee to visit John at his
college. Keeping up with the.
news and traveling is not
always compatible. We caught
some talk radio and I did a little
Web surfing, but most of the
time was spent bothering our
son., The only time I turned a

time we left home
until the time we
came back was a
few minutes


Monday morning.
Still we got wind
of the story on the trip and,
given that we spent far more
time traveling on the highways
and byways between here and
Tennessee than I want to,
remember at the moment,'I took
some of that time thinking
about the situation. There were
a lot of issues to think about.
First off, the. question of tap-
ing the teacher. The student
who taped him, Sean Allen,
says he didn't hide the fact he.
was taping the lecture. Do stu-
dents have the right to record
their teachers? Part of me, the
part that was once a teacher,
cringes at the thought. If some
of the stuff I had said in class
was taken out of context, could
it have gotten me into trouble?
Then there is the other part of
me that thinks that classrooms

ought to be open to the public
and not places of secrecy.
Teachers are influencing young
minds, and such acts' should not
be done in a comer.
Having said that, as repre-
hensible as I find the teacher's
statements (among other things
he compared Bush's State of the
Union speech and beliefs to
those of Hitler and said that if
we bomb cocaine fields other
countries, were within their
rights to bomb our tobacco
fields) I am not sure shutting
him up is the answer.
Here is my problem. There is
the matter of the First
Amendment. What this case
boils down to for me 'is this: do
a teacher's First Amendment
rights end at the schoolhouse
door?
Some would say yes. Some
would say that a teacher cannot
have a Bible on their desk in the
classroom. Some would forbid
a teacher to express anything
'resembling a personal opinion
about anything.


I confess that I have trouble
with that concept. The things
we believe are a part of who we
are. We ask people to compart-
mentalize themselves when
they step into a classroom and it
isn't right. Teachers should not
be asked to choose between
their livelihood and their rights.
What then, of those who
don't want their kids in this
guy's classroom? I'm sure there
are steps they can take. Surely
he is not the only teacher teach-
ing the course in question. But
realize that we don't live in a
society with' only one way of
looking at things, nor would we
want to.
As I said, I deplore what Jay
Bennish said to his students that
day. But I will defend to the
death his right to say such
things. That's what free speech
means.

knees were shaking. ,
The first 20 Braden River batters that
came had come to the plate Friday night at
Head Field had all gone back to the
dugout before reaching base. Sedlock was
one out away from a pitcher's dream of a
perfect game.
And he had just thrown [hrece n.,iight
balls to hitter No. 21.
"My knees were about to buckle on
me," the junior left-hander said.
They didn't buckle, however, and nei-
ther did Sedlock. He threw four, straight
strikes to Michael Cass, ht., fIuiled one of
them off before looking at sinrke thiee for


the last out of Sedlock's perfect gem in a

Once he got two strikes,
though, Sedlock knew he

"I Lne.' I had him when I'

he said.

Sebring


gets past


Palmetto
By MARCUS WILKINS
Sports Writer
SEBRING Looking less
than perfect but solid enough to
snare a victory, the Blue
Streaks willed their way to
another District 10-4A win on
Friday night, beating Palmetto
3-1.
A productive second inning
put Sebring ahead for good in
what would be its only scoring
frame of the evening. Drawing
a walk to lead things off, first
baseman Tony Vazquez came
around to score on Chaz
Abeln's single up the middle.
An error, a passed ball and a
walk .loaded the bases up for
J.C. Shoop, who ripped a run-
scoring single to left. With the
bases still loaded for Colt
Williams, a wild
. pitch brought ring
Charlie Peck in
for a 3-0 lead that
would hold up almetto
for the win.,
Starting pitch- d
er Chris Welbom
pitched impress i\el) through
four and began to labor a bit in
the fifth when a couple of
errors brought Palmetto third
baseman Matt Stone in for the
Tigers onis run. Then it was up
to relief pitcher Corey Ritter to
Comel in for the save in the
sixth, his first of the year.
Sebring coach Hoppy Rewis,
\ ho is admittedly always look-
Sing to strive toward perfection,
felt it wasn't the kind of mental
performance he e\pects from
the team.
"We're making basic mis-
tAkes. We're not making some
basic plays, and we're making
more mistakes than you know
'because we're missing some

''"^"^^^^i~i ~ p^^ '


Brabham is back with the
Panoz family, this time in a Panoz Esperante
GTLM fielded by Multimatic Motorsports
Team Panoz.
Brabham was-one of the Panoz brand's most
recognizable drivers in the early days; of the
American Le Mans :Series, piloting prototypes
for Panoz Motor Sports from 1999-2003.
During that time he won seven times for Panoz.
"You never know where motor racing will


take you," Brabham said. "I
really didn't think I would be
coming back to this point. I had
a great time with Panoz Motor
Sports back in the day, and now
we're back with the


Esperante."'
Brabham signed with Multimatic
Motorsports Team Panoz in January. The
Canadian team took over the competition aspect
of the Panoz brand in November, and it certain-
ly was fitting to bring a familiar face on board.

Continued from IE
Maxwell for the full season in
one of Multimatic's two Panoz
Esperante GTLMs.
The pair will add Sebastien
Bourdais for Sebring. Brabham
turned his first laps in the Panoz
Esperante GTLM last week at
Road Atlanta with overwhelm-
ingly positive results.
"The car is very different to


what I have

throttle, you really feel it."


Carolina rig superior


for catching big bass


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Avon Park catcher Luke Sedlock jumps on his cousin, Johnny
Sedlock, after the final out of Johnny's perfect game against Braden
River on Friday.


PERFECT
Continued from 1E
he started each of the first two
batters with one both strikes.
"They were both working
real well --the fastball real
well and the changeup was
intermediate," Sedlock said. "It
was on some points and a cou-
ple of times it was off."
It wasn't like Sedlock had a
lot of room for error.
The Devils (6-4 overall, 3-2
in District 10-4A) could only
scratch out five hits against
Braden River freshman left-
hander Nathan Pittman, getting
two of them in the fourth when
Devaris Strange led off with an

REWIS "We're pitch-

It's been an exhausting week
for Sebring, which began the

Sedlock said he started
thinking about the perfect game
when he went to the mound for
the seventh inning, and he was
actually hoping a scoreboard
mistake, which had the Pirates
credited for one of Avon Patk's
hits, would stay on the board.
"My first batter, I started
thinking about it and I said,
'I'm not going to think about
it,'" he said: "Actually, they put
one hit one the board, and I
said, 'Leave it up there so that I
wouldn't think about it.'"
Now, Sedlock can think
about Friday night for the rest
of his life.

extra-inning game at Avon
Park.
"I'm a tough coach to play
for," Rewis said. "I always
want perfection and you're not
going to get that when you're
dealing with human beings. But
we feel good about ourselves
tonight and in district play."


There are several ways to
fish soft plastic lures. The two
most popular rigs are the Texas
rig and the Carolina rig. Most
of us who fish for largemouths
have used both with a certain
amount of success.
I had always leaned toward
the Texas rig as being more
productive for me and I have
caught a lot of good bass with
it, but when I think back over
the years, I begin to realize
that the Carolina rig has helped
me catch more and bigger bass
than the Texas rig.
Carolina rigging is probably
the most preferred method for
fishing a soft plastic lure. It is
a rig that can be used year-
round and I believe more bass
are caught on Carolina rigs
than any other method.
A few years ago, profession-
al anglers who knew the value
of the rig were using it. Now,
with a little practice, anyone
can catch bass the first time he
tries it.
For those less experienced
fishermen, it is easier to cast
and retrieve than a Texas rig,
The heavier sinker makes it
ideal for longer casts.
The rig also produces a lot
more bites in a good bass lake
and when used with larger
lures, the Carolina rig takes
more lunker bass.
For a long time, pro anglers
used the rig to catch a quick
limit. After experimenting with
the larger lures, they soon
learned they could take larger
bass with the same rig.
Fishing a lake known to har-
bor lunker bass, a plastic worm
or lizard up to 12-inches long
is ideal for taking the bigger
fish. Some knowledgeable bass
anglers around here will use up
to a 16-inch worm with suc-
cess.
Another attribute of the
Carolina rig is the ability to
take big bass when the weather
is less than ideal. It is much
easier to cast into the wind and
it is more effective on deep
structure.
As for equipment, use a

medium-heavy 6-foot baitcast-
ing rod (anything longer will
tire you out in a long day of
fishing). You also need a reel
with a moderate retrieve speed
loaded with 20-pound line and
12-pound leader. *
With this rig, getting the
sinker to the bottom quickly
and keeping it there is impor-
tant. A three-quarter-ounce
sinker should work, but in
deep water, a 1-ounce sinker
would be better.
For the larger bass, the hook
needs to be a lightweight 4/0
wide-gap worm hook. The
large gap lets the point clear
the wadded up plastic that
forms when a bass inhales the
lure.
The Carolina rig is an espe-
cially good rig for catching
bedding bass and the plastic
lizard is the ideal lure. Fish the
rig extremely slow at this time.
Be ready to set the hook
immediately anytime resist-
ance is detected.
After the bass have come off
the beds, the Carolina rig will
still outfish other rigs or
crankbaits when the fish aren't
very active. Now is the time to
try a less active lure like a
French Fry, a straight-tail .
worm or a 5-inch grub.'
I think this is the ideal rig
for soft plastic lures year-
round.
The pros say it is the superi-
or rig, and I agree with them.
