No room for



churches on



small sites

Residents concerned

about traffic, noise
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING As people move to Highlands
County, they need to live, work, eat, drive, go to
school and worship.
The county has no shortage of churches, but
Tuesday's Zoning Board of Adjustment meeting
showed it has a shortage of church sites. Two
churches got turned down for a special excep-
tion to set up in residential neighborhoods.
In each case the churches are small about
20-40 people but wanted to grow and asked
for special exceptions for quarter- or half-acre
residential lots. Both renting space in commer-
cial areas now.
Doug Walz, board chairman, said the county
will see more church site requests in the future.
"Each church is looking for expansion," he
said. 'This is not an easy issue, just when we
deal with a few of them."
Pastor Ronnel Barfield said Pentecostal
Lighthouse Fellowship of Lake Placid Inc. has
rented a building in Lake Placid for the last
three and a half years. He and his wife Kala
want to build on their two lots just north of them
a half-acre on Highlands Lakes Drive in
Highlands Lakes Estates.
Pastor Orlando Vellon, who spoke through a
translator, is with Iglesia Del Dios Viviente
Columna y Bahearte de la Verdad Inc., or
"Church of the Living God, the Pillar and
Foundation of the Truth." A parishioner has two
lots on Wellston Road in Avon Park Lakes--
100 feet square just north of State Road 64,
--near Montoya Auto Sales.
Barfield's request was denied 5-2; Vellokn's
Swas denied 7-0, mainly because the site was
smaller than Barfield's.
Board members' and nearby residents' main
concerns were parking, drainage and traffic
flow, which Barfield felt like he addressed.
Vellon said having a church in Avon Park Lakes
might spur the need for paving and traffic
enforcement on the area's shell roads, which
will be needed when more residents move there.
One thing neither application had, both board
member Lew Carter and Walz said, was a site
plan to outline how a building, parking and
drainage improvements would fit on the sites.
Carter said when small churches grow, they
have parking problems and have services sever-
al days or nights each week to accommodate the
congregation. Barfield said his church already

Not much debate in Highlands County


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
In today's age of "political correct-
ness," people are at odds over
whether the word "holiday" should
replace the word "Christmas" in
referring to Christmas Day.
According to an ABC news report
from December of last year, "Many
people across the country are com-
plaining that political correctness has
gone too far and Christmas is
being censored."
Based on a recent random poll of
local residents at a Sebring store, the
majority here seem to want
'Christmas' to remain the way it is.
Betty Adams of Buttonwood Bay
in Sebring said, "Leave it as

that's what it's about." Though she
claimed she's been "guilty of saying
'happy holidays' to people," she said
she "still feels strongly about leaving
Christmas Christmas."
Ann Haralson of Sebring likewise
said emphatically, ''Leave it like it is
- it's all political."
Millie Monroe, visiting her mother
in Sebring, said, "Everyone I talk to
wants it to be 'Christmas.' I agree.
When they ask you not to say 'Merry
Christmas,' they're taking 'Christ'
out. of Christmas. I've had 85
Christmases and I believe that is
what it should be called."
Evelyn Boyd said of the debate,


"Keep Christmas Christmas! I
believe in Jesus that's what it's
about and it should be kept that way
- same as Easter. 'He's the reaon
for the season,' and as a Christian I
feel very strong about my opinion on
that."
Neil Musser, who works in Lake
Placid, said, "To hell with political
correctness. Stick with Christmas.
It's the way I was brought up. I've
enjoyed it the way it is no
changes."
Cheryl Dilts of Avon Park,
responded, "I believe it should be
called Christmas. People who don't

Pendarvis shopping center

will prompt traffic light

By PHIL AT1NGER
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID HIW Development wants to give Lake
Placid a new shopping center, and the town council approves, for
now.
Built around a major statewide grocery chain, the shopping
center at U.S. 27 and Roy Pendarvis Road now Heartland
Boulevard would spread a pedestrian-friendly shopping plaza
over 18 acres with three outparcels by the highway.
David F. Ballew, principal in the company, envisions a bank
and nice restaurant for those sites. The grocery store would
include a drive-through pharmacy. The development will need a
small-scale comprehensive plan amendment for the town of Lake
Placid, he said.
Ballew said another 16-17 acres to the rear would have agri-
culture land rezoned in the future for medium-density residefitial
for condominiums. He has no plans to build them now, but thinks
they will be in demand soon, with a western-facing view of Lake
June-in-Winter.
Most of all, since Roy Pendarvis Road (Heartland Boulevard)
will be a new east and west two-lane collector, Ballew said the
plaza will need a traffic signal at the intersection on U.S. 27,
along with turn lanes, acceleration lanes and deceleration lanes.
He wants to work with the Florida Department of
Transportation to get a warrant study done for the signal, but told
town council members on Monday that FDOT won't install a sig-
nal until they have had enough crashes to justify it. He'd like the
town and county to lobby the state agency to get the signal before
wrecks start happening there.
Gavarrete is still trying to get bids to improve Pendarvis Road.
He told county commissioners Tuesday that the only bid for that
road was $400,000 over his estimate.

Emotional hurricane




help still available


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Not long after
Florida took in people migrat-
ing from the destruction waged
by Hurricane Katrina,
Hurricane Wilma hit the lower
part of the state.
People are still recovering in
both the northern Gulf Coast
and southern Florida.
Peace River Center's Project
Recovery is here to help.
Karen Gammage, who
worked with Highlands
Emergency Recovery
Operation last year to help deal
with the triple hurricane after-
math, said a new program start-
ed at the center in August 2005
and began offering service in


October. It's funded through a
federal grant administered by
the state to deal with victims'
emotional health.
Those who need help can
contact the center for free coun-
seling sessions: 12 for adults,
10 for children. Sessions can be
done at home, at school or in
Bartow.
The team leader is an adult
therapist. The rest of the team
includes Gammage, a family
service case manager; a child
therapist; a certified substance
abuse counselor and a vocation-
al counselor to help get peo-
ple back in the workforce by
building a resume and doing a
job search.

Board recommends flexibility in'

drafting new density regulations


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING The zoning
board will ask the city council
to consider building flexibility
into proposed density changes.
From Sebring's citizens, the
board is asking for volunteers
to fill a pair of vacancies.
Currently, R-3 zoning allows
for 24 units per acre. The city
council is considering reducing
that to 12, as some members
have said, to control growth
while maintaining the city's
personality.
Jim Jacobs, building inspec-
tor, said parts of the city are bet-
ter suited for more density and
that rezoning to 12 per acre
would cause some properties to
fall out of compliance.
Jacobs explained that those
that would exceed the new den-
sity would be allowed to stand
as is.
But should a property be
damaged more than 50-percent
by fire or other natural disas-
ters, the owners would be limit-
ed to rebuilding under current
zoning which could displace
families or affect a landlord's
bottom line .under the current
proposal.

ager, Gammage helps with
physical needs such as food,
shelter and clothing.
She's seen Katrina survivors
in the Bartow area, as well as
Wilma survivors in Fort
Lauderdale.
They see about five to 10
people each week, "trickling
in," Gammage said.
The team has done seminars
in Polk County schools, but
hasn't had opportunity to do
them in Highlands County
schools. They still can though.
To schedule personal ses-
sions or arrange for a presenta-
tion, visit the Peace River
Center at 1259 W. Main St.,
Bartow. People can also contact
the center by postal mail at P.O.
Box 1559, Bartow, FL 33830-
1559; by e-mail at projectrecov-
eiy@peaceriveI:com, and by
phone at (863) 519-0930.


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING The building is
nothing more than rubble now,
but late Monday night, a four-
plex of apartments burned to
the ground in DeSoto City.
Nine adults and three chil-
dren, a collection of related
Hispanic families, got out safe-
ly with no injuries. They were
sheltered in the DeSoto City
Community Center during the
fire, but are now homeless. Fire
gutted their homes at 6240
County Road 17 S., near
Pioneer Road.
Art Harriman with the
American Red Cross has sup-
plied them with food clothing
and shelter, and even provided
water, snacks and breakfast to
the firemen on scene.
Harriman said the families
had limited English, but two of
the ladies were able to translate.
The fire took everything they
had, he said.
Fire Services Supervisor
Jimmy Branca said crews
fought the blaze from the first
call at 11:35 p.m. Monday until
about 7-8 a.m. Tuesday. An
investigator with the Bureau of
Fire and Arson, Division of the
State Fire Marshal said the fire
apparently started from a faulty
light fixture on the northeast
corner.
The spark ignited what
appears to have been a wood-
frame building with stucco and
concrete block exterior. Within
a short time, the building was
fully involved.
The first units arrived on the
scene within minutes, Branca
said, and included volunteer
fire crews from DeSoto City,
Highlands Lakes, Lake Placid,
Leisure Lakes, Lorida, Sun 'N
Lake of Sebring, and West
Sebring Volunteer Fire depart-
ments.
Placid Lakes and Sun 'N
Lakes South fire departments
stayed at their stations to cover
the south end of the county,
Branca said. -
Emergency Management
Director Bill Nichols arrived an


hour after the first alarm to 60-
foot flames he could see well
before he arrived. The heat was
threatening aluminum high ten-
sion power lines over the south
end of the building.
""There was not a square
inch not on fire," Nichols said.
Firefighters positioned them-
selves at the corners of the
building, Nichols said, out of
the way in case the walls fell
outward. The walls fell inward,
but that put fallen debris
between fire hoses and the
blaze.
Parts of the roof fell on three
of the six cars parked near the
building.
Firefighters had the flames
under control at by 2:56 a.m.
Tuesday. Branca, who arrived
shortly after that, called in a
Highlands County Road and
Bridge Department backhoe. It
arrived at 5:30 a.m. to help pull
debris out in piles so firefight-
ers could put out the smolder-
ing rubble.
"We had to get to the seat of
the fire," Branca said.
Nichols said two fire hoses
cooled a duplex threatening to
ignite from the radiant heat on
the north side of the fire. Even
with water cooling the exterior,
vinyl blinds on the insides of
the windows melted.
The old building was once a
hotel, general store, local post
office, and restaurant, accord-
ing to Jim Gilbreath, lifetime
resident of DeSoto City. Ottie
V. Burch, former owner,
cooked meals for soldiers at
Hendricks Field training base
during World War II.
Iva Ercoli, whose family
arrived in 1946, once lived in
the hotel before her family
bought a home locally. Her
father carried the mail to and
from the post office to the train
every day and night.
"During the war, it was a
very busy place, with gasoline
sold outside and food being
sold inside and rooms being
rented uptalrs~ and the post
office there," she said.


The next city council meet-
ing is 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Several zoning board mem-
bers' terms expire at the end of
the month.
Bob Rap and Art Allyn have
committed to another term but
Dan Feathers said he would
step down.
With a previously unfilled
seat, the board needs two peo-
ple.
Jacobs explained that new
members are appointed by the
city council as alternates, who
are asked to attend all meetings
and can vote in a regular mem-
ber's absence.
"This ensures that they're not
coming in there cold," he said,
explaining that with a vacancy
alternates are moved up. "They
receive all the same materials
and can learn as they go."
Currently the board is a
"good mixture" representative
of the community, Jacobs said.
Applicants must meet two
requirements reside within
city limits and be at least 21
years old.
To apply, see Lane Padelford
at City Hall's Building
Department office and bring a
resume.

No new arrests in counterfeit ring OBITUARIES


Merchants and

consumers

warned to

beware

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Dacia Elaine
Mitchell, 27, allegedly rented a
room on Nov. 12 from the
Econo Lodge Motel in Avon
Park with counterfeit money.
So far, she's the only one
arrested in a local case of coun-
terfeit money, but Highlands
County sheriff's deputies are
warning merchants and con-
sumers to be wary of possible
fake bills.


On Nov. 17, another fake $20
bill was passed at a local con-
venience store. Mitchell has not
been charged in that case, so
investigators think fake bills
may still be floating around the
area. They believe fake $10 and
$50 bills have been passed.
Any and all businesses in the
county need to inspect all cur-
rency being presented. If possi-
ble, use a specialty pen
designed to detect fake curren-
cy from legitimate money.
Any suspicious persons or
activity should be immediately
reported to law enforcement. In
addition, clerks and employees
should attempt to get vehicle
information, such as a license
tag number, and description of
the suspect's car.


Clerks should also take note
of the day and time the bill was
passed so they can view surveil-
lance video for businesses that
have cameras.
In Mitchell's case, she paid a
$87.15 room rate with five
counterfeit $20 bills at 12:42
p.m., sheriff's complaint affi-
davits said. Reports said she
used her mother's home
address, but wrote down her
correct driver's license number
and vehicle information when
she checked in.
Anyone who has information.
or has further questions should
call the Highlands County
Sheriff's 'Office, Criminal
Investigations Division at (863)
402-7250.


Paving the way


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Military Sea Services Museum Association Vice President George Smith points recently to the
museum's memorial brick walkway in Sebring. More than 100 bricks have been laid so far with
plenty of space still available. Bricks cost $50 and contain up to three lines, 12 letters/spaces per
line. The museum will be hosting a dedication ceremony for the new walkway at 2 p.m. Jan. 7. For
details, call 385-0992.




Vandettuoli charged



with racing on highway


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Laying down
rubber three times at the U.S.
27 and U.S. 98 intersection
earned a driver a citation for
racing on a highway.
Jason Thomas Vandettuoli,
33, of Sebring, also got charged
with fleeing law enforcement,
driving with a suspended
license, resisting an officer
without violence, giving a false
police report, and perjury while
not in an official proceeding.
Blanket bond was set at
$30,000.
A Highlands County sheriff's
deputy was talking to a citizen
in the parking lot of the Circle
K convenience store at U.S. 27
and U.S. 98/State Road 66 at
11:26 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10.
At that time, an eastbound
blue Lincoln Town Car pulled
up to the intersection stopped
and spun his tires. The car then
drove through the intersection
onto U.S. 98, entered the Circle
K parking lot, stopped and spun
it's tires again, arrest reports
said..
The driver, later identified as
Vandettuoli, drove through the
parking lot, stopped at the U.S.
27 northbound, exit, spun his
tires a third time and headed
north.


The deputy attempted to stop
him with lights and siren, but
the Lincoln stayed at a constant
50 mph, made a U-turn at the
intersection of U.S. 27 and
George Boulevard and headed
south.
SHe then turned into the
Watering Hole parkinglot and
drove back behind the building,
where he. got stuck on an
embankment.
He got out of his car, faced
the deputy directly and then ran
back toward the highway,
reports said. The deputy recog-
nized him as Vandettuoli,
reports said.
A K-9 unit search couldn't

an incorrect tag.
The next afternoon,
Vandettuoli called the

stolen.
Under oath, he told deputies

Allegedly the tag from his truck
had been attached to it by the
person who stole it.
He said he had parked the car
at the Watering Hole, where he

Deuo to pay tribute to


legendary saxophonists
Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK The South Florida
Community College Jazz Series will open its
2006 season with "A Tribute to Zoot and Al," fea-
turing Terry Myers and John Orsini, at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, Jan. 7, at the SFCC University Center
Auditorium on the Highlands Campus in Avon
Park.
In the late 1940s, the Woody Herman
Orchestra produced some of this country's great-
est jazz musicians. Among them were two of the
finest saxophone players of their generation, Zoot
Sims, of California, and Al Cohn, of Brooklyn.
Despite having been raised 3,000 miles apart,
Sims and Cohn immediately discovered that they
were both disciples of the style of Lester Young,
the legendary tenor saxophonist of the Count
Basie Orchestra. Their phrasing, sounds, and
swinging concept of playing forged an instant
connection between them. Their mutual affilia-
tion with the Woody Herman Orchestra became
the start of a musical association and friendship
that lasted their entire lives.
John Orsini, of Kent, Ohio, and Terry Myers,
of Des Moines, Iowa, grew up admiring Sims and
Cohn and have committed themselves to keeping
their music alive. Like their idols, Orsini and
Myers developed an immediate affinity for each
other's styles when they first began performing
together in the early 1980s.
Orsini has toured with The Glenn Miller.
Orchestra, The Les Brown Band, The Tommy
Dorsey Orchestra, and The Bob Crosby Bob Cats

to name a few. Myers has played with The
Tommy Dorsey Band, The Bob Crosby Band,
Les Elgart's Band; Tex. Beneke Band, the Bill
Allred Classic Jazz Band, and The Black Dogs
Jazz Band.
Orsini and Myers settled in Orlando in the
1980s. Orsini has been on the staff of Walt
Disney World for the past 23 years, while Myers
has toured internationally and performed at jazz
festivals throughout the United States and
Europe.

Inverted trees found in Lake Placid


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Inverted trees
have been found growing in a
patch in Lake Placid.
They're sold out now, but
they will be back next year, just
like they have been for the last
three years. Kathy Yacoboni of
Foliage Tower usually has a
dozen of the trees for sale each
Christmas season.
"I always sell out," she said.
That means as many as 36
homes in Highlands County
have the trees right now.
Inverted trees, also called
"umbrella trees," tend to be the
type that hang from the ceiling,
although she can get the ones
that stand on a pole on the floor.
The inverted trees are more
adaptable to people's homes,
she said. They're great for peo-
ple who have "little space, little


kids or cats."
They come in several differ-
ent shapes and sizes, with
flocked boughs or spiral-pattern
branches, either without lights
or pre-lit. .
The trees come in all heights,
starting with the ones that hang
two and a half feet from the
ceiling, which expand to a 36-
inch width.
Inverted trees made an
appearance a few years ago
when retailers hoisted trees
from the ceiling or up-ended
them by a wall to leave left
more room underneath for mer-
chandise. The up-ended orien-
tation also allows ornaments to
hang at eye level, away from
concealing branches, something
people like at home, too.
Given their publicity this
year, retailers expect inverted
trees to become a bigger hit


next Christmas season.
Yacoboni said her whole
store, which will have been in
business for 26 years in
February 2006, goes totally to
Christmas in late September
and early October each year.
She specializes in decorating
for homes, offices, restaurants.
weddings and receptions.
She changes with the seasons
with a myriad of artificial or
"lifelike" -- products.
When it comes to Christmas,
she does a lot of innovative
things, inclding_custom work.
For example, most people get
round Christmas wreaths, but
Yacoboni can also do oval,
square and other shapes,
"When they come in this
time of year, they are usually
looking for Christinas," she
said.
And when they walk out,
that's what they say: "Merry
Christmas."
Inverted trees will be back
next year. If anyone wants to
order or reserve one, they may
want to visit or contact
Yacoboni now. Her store is at
419 U.S. 27 N., Lake Placid, at
the base of the Tower. Her
phone number is 465-1888 and
her e-mail address is kat-n-
silk@htn.net.

A previous story waas incorrect
in saying no trees were avail-
able locally. It should have said
consumers should check spe-
cialty shops for unique holiday
items.

"I'd want more churches

share the same beliefs should
keep their's to themselves. We
don't force ours on them. They
shouldn't force theirs on us."
With 85 Christmases under
his belt, the Rev. Howard Flota
of Sebring had strong feelings
about the debate too. "Keep it
Christmas. I am very much
against this seasonal thing. I'm
a minister, too, and tell every-
one every Sunday to 'tell peo-
ple how you feel."'
Buddy Duprey Sr. agreed,
"Christmas is Christmas as far
as I'm concerned. It's always
been Christmas and just


because somebody else doesn't
agree with that I do."
Mary Musselman kept her
opinion short and to the point,
but agreed with others contact-
ed. "I think this political cor-
rectness stuff is ridiculous."
Mary Ann Munoz was nei-
ther for nor against substituting
the word holiday for Christmas.
"It doesn't really matter to me
- whatever anyone wants to
do." One other woman agreed
with Munoz, but did not give
her name.
Ginger Bogardus of Sebring
made her opinion clear.
"Anytime I can say 'Merry
Christmas' to someone and
they're offerided by it the
world's in sad shape "
Tyrone Arocho of A\ n Park


was more than happy to share
his feelings about the debate. "I
say it should be called

that it's a special day the day
Jesus Christ was born," he said.
Arocho went on to say,
"Easter shouldn't be called
'holiday' either. Fine if people
want to call the Fourth of July
or New Year's Day 'holiday,'
that's different; but certain
things should be specified."
Arocho felt very strongly
about this debate. He said, "I
was very disappointed that
schools were going to take
'Christmas' and replace it with
'holiday' and take away other
events of the past too I know a
lot of other--. xho feel the same
way."

LAKE PLACID
upid's ageless wiles are leg-
endary, even set to music -
wedding music, this time -
that filled the First Baptist Church
Nov. 20, when Euel and Mae Vines
strolled out the door as husband and
wife.
It took the honeymooning couple
67 years to answer Cupid's arrow.
These two young-hearted newly-
weds were sweethearts their senior
year at Oak Grove High School in
Birmingham, Ala., back in 1938.
They tried to keep in touch after
graduation, as they took separate
paths through nearly seven decades
of life.
Of course, as separation often
does. each lost track of the other,
and eventually married other people.
Still, as anyone knows who pays
attention to Cupid's mysterious mus-
ings, there is sometimes albeit
rarely an inevitability about things
matrimonial that seems to promise
that some day the separate paths will
merge.
"In our senior year, we started
going together and became very
close," seated at their dining room
table Euel Vines recalled as his
bride's loving eyes focused on her
gentle groom.
As this love story goes, Mae
Vines went away to Auburn
University, Auburn, Ala. and Euel
Vines got called up for military
service.
Miles and miles apart, each faced
the coming world war, which would
send him to the South Pacific and
her to a hosiery mill.
Dec. 7, 1941, found 21-year-old
Euel Vines watching "Gone with the
Wind," in a Jacksonville movie the-
ater.
"They turned on the theater lights
and someone said that all military
personnel were to return to base,"
Euel Vines said. "I went out on the
street In front ofthe theater and cars

High school sweethearts Euel and Mae Vines, of Lake Placid, unite in marriage after almost seven decades of being apart.


were lined up to take us wherever
we needed to go."
One of the cars took him back to
Fort Blanding.
"Like a lot of people, I didn't
really know where Pearl Harbor
was, but I do know there was a lot
of hysteria that went through the
theater, and obviously, I knew it was
important, but I didn't fully appreci-
ate the significance at the time."
Mae Vines added, "At that time, I
was like him, I didn't know what it
was all about."
An Auburn student majoring in
home economics, that day she was
walking across the.campus and
someone passed her and said, "Do
you know they bombed Pearl


Harbor?"
As she walked on she thought,
"What's Pearl Harbor?"
Those were the pre-satellite days
before instant worldwide news
reports.
"All this came up and nobody
knew what was really happening,"
she remembered just after Dec. 7,
2005.
And quite a while before this first
news of the Japanese attack upon
American soil, the high school
sweethearts had lost contact.
As Euel Vines sailed to the South
Pacific, Mae Vines was headed for a
Factory somewhere.. .......
"All the men were gtnib, and you
had your pick of jobs. so I worked at


some man's job at the hosiery mill,
where I was the chief dye special-
ist," she said.
One of those men, Euel Vines
began his military duty in New
Zealand, then on to New Caledonia,
and some island hopping on his way
to the Philippines as an Army cap-
tain from New Caledonia, the South
Pacific Theater headquarters. He
helped stage attacks on Japan, under
the commands of Admiral William
Halsey and General Douglas
McArthur.
"When I went into the military
service in 1940, there were some
300,000 people in the authorized

strength of the U.S. Army, it
grew to 20 million in a very
short time," he said.
Since then, his government
awarded him the Bronze Star.
After the war, Euel Vines
went to work as a sales repre-
sentative for Koppers
Company Inc. in Pittsburgh, a
bank holding firm that man-
Saged several large operations
across the nation, including
Aluminum Company of
America and Pittsburgh Plate
Glass. In time, he became a
regional manager and traveled
from Houston to Birmingham,
to Detroit, and finally to New
York City, where he was
regional manager for more
than seven years.
"During my tour in New
York, I was working with
Union Carbide on a research
project in South Africa, and I
headed an eight-man team that
started a joint-venture compa-
ny there," he said. "I was there
for about 18 months."
In 1985, Euel Vines retired.
Last June while visiting high
school classmates in Mobile,
Ala., they took out their senior
yearbook and reminisced about
the good old days. They tried
to account for everyone, but
they couldn't account for Mae,
he said.
With a laugh, he recalled
that backyard conversation.
"Someone had heard that she
was deceased. I have a nephew
who lives near her uncle, so I
picked up the phone when I
got back to Houston and called
him to find out if any of her
family were still living."
Mae was alive and well and
living in Lake Placid.
He wrote a letter, she called
him, and the rest is their future.
Days before Hurricane
Katrina blew apart an Interstate
10 bridge near New Orleans,
Euel Vines climbed into his car
and drove from Houston to his
high school sweetheart's front
door.
"I spent a few days with
Mae, and went to her church

"It was so long since I'd
seen him, I'd almost forgotten
what he looked like," Mae
said.
After all these years, for
these newlyweds, they are sim-
ply picking up where they left
off.
"We were talking about that
the other night," she mused.
"It's true after all these years
- there's still something there."
If they had it all to do over,
would they have taken the
paths they did?
"Would we have married?"
Mae Vines looked away and
thought for a moment. Quietly,
she said, "No, we were each
going our separate ways."
They agreed they have no
regrets.
"We're just getting to know
each other again," she said.
"We sit together at night and
we talk about it, and we're just
beginning to learn about each
other."

It's interesting to talk about
where we've been," he said.
As happy as Cupid must be,
according to Euel Vines, "the
honeymoon is about to come to
an end."
The night before they shared
their story, she suggested he
get a haircut.
"He got a haircut this morn-
ing," she laughed.
Everyone at the table
laughed.
Euel Vines grew serious. He
folded his hands in his lap and
looked at Mae. "I would say to
people after 80, if you had a
happy first marriage, you miss
the companionship."
"Go for it," Mae Vines said
and smiled at him.
"Companionship is a moti-
vating force," he said and
smiled back at her.
When he got to her door that
first time in 67 years, he was
thinking, "Well, do I get a
Baptist hug?"
After all these years, that
first night, they sat up just talk-
ing until after 1 a.m.
And, Cupid grinned.

Local couple's daughter publishes first book


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
AVON PARK When Staci
Henderson Froelich was in
eighth grade her teacher once
wrote in the margin of a book
report of Froelich's, "One day
maybe I'll be reading a book
that you were the author of."
This meant so much to
Froelich that she saved the
paper and now with the
recent publishing of her first
book, Motherhood with
Laughter and Tears, her teacher
of years ago may have the
opportunity to do so.
In the book Froelich (resident


of Maryland and frequent visi-
tor of her parents, J.G. and Judi
Henderson and, and other fami-
ly members in Avon Park ).
writes about her children Mark,
12, Kaitlyn, I1, and Melissa,
who died in July 2003 at age 7,
and her adventures as a mother.
Having journalized about the
funny things her children said
and did when they were small,
Froelich began compiling her
entries into a book after her
daughter passed away two years
ago.
Lighthearted, witty and
humorous, for the most part; the
book also includes some heart-

KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Staci Henderson Froelich (seated) signs copies of her book
'Motherhood With Laughter and Tears (a true story)' while her
mother Judi Henderson (left), son Mark Froelich, 12, father J.G.
Henderson and daughter Kati Froelich, 11, proudly standby.


breaking and solemn portions.
Melissa. a poster-child for
the National American Red
Cross, was born with congenital
heart defects, taxing Froelich,
her husband Jim, and the rest of
their family emotionally, physi-
cally and financially.
The first 18 months of
Melissa's life were spent hospi-
talized. Stating the obvious,
Froelich said of this time, "It's
very easy to get down being in
the hospital so much." For this
reason she and Jim made it a
point to share something funny
with each other every day "to
help balance life out."
For this purpose Froelich
shared with Jim the comical
escapades of Mark and Kati.
Originally, the book was
intended "for mothers and
grandmothers to provide
humor and inspiration especial-
ly for those going through some
difficult times."
Since the book was released,
however, Froelich has learned
that the target market she'd
anticipated was just a little off
the mark as these aren't the
only ones reading and enjoying
it. Men and children like it as
well.
A lot of times, according to
Froelich, parents or grandpar-
ents who want their kids to read
the book for the stories in it
about "things like helping oth-
ers, and why it's important to
stay off drugs, will come back
nine times out of 10 saying,
'You know, 1 didn't have to
even tell them to read it because
I couldn't find that thing and


my kid was already in there
reading it!"'
Curtis Nelson of Avon Park
proved that the book isn't just
for women by saying, "When I
was getting my hair cut by
Staci's dad at The Hair Depot I
started reading it. I enjoyed it
enough that I bought it, recom-
mended it to several friends,
and even bought another copy
to give to someone for
Christmas."
Referring to himself as "at
the grandfather stage," he said,
"The book brought back memo-
ries of the kids growing up
when they were that age."
Nelson recommended the book
as a great Christmas gift for
people to give to any mother or


grandmother.
Another fan, Edie Maclntyre,
also of Avon Park -- and inci-
dentally single and without
children dispelled any notion
that the book is only for moth-
ers. "I thought it was a great
book. Staci is a wonderful
writer and it just touches your
heart: She'll take something bad
and make a positive out of it. It
just helps you realize that when
you're going through some-
thing difficult you can get
through it. Anyone, even chil-
dren, will get a kick out of it."
Having experienced every
mother's worst nightmare -
the death of a child Froelich
included a chapter "touching on
some of the basic do's and
don't that a parent or grandpar-


ent can share with children
about how to treat someone
going through this kind of
crises."
She said, "Lots of times peo-
ple don't know what to say or
how to act around someone
who has lost a loved one, and in
trying not to hurt the person's
feelings, they often avoid them
- leaving them feeling even
more alone and isolated."
Motherhood with Laughter
and Tears is available in paper-
back for $10.50 at www.ama
zon.com; www.barnesandno
ble.com; www.booksamil
lion.com; the Adventist Book
Store in Winter Park; and local-

National Wildlife Federation shows


people how to garden for wildlife


Special to the News-Sun
The National Wildlife
Federation announced that the
property of Paula H. George,
located in Sebring, has been
certified as an official Wildlife
Habitat site. This achievement
contributes to the organization's
goal of certifying 7,000 sites by
its 70th anniversary in 2006.
The property now attracts a
variety of birds, butterflies and
other wildlife while helping to
protect the local environment.
With the help of NWF, many
habitat enthusiasts have turned
their yards and open spaces into
enticing wildlife refuges.
NWF began the Backyard
Wildlife Habitat program in
1973 and has since certified
over 58,000 habitats nation-
wide. The majority of these
e&..repres.ent_ the hard %.ork
rc i-omnitmeni of individuals
and families providing habitat
near their homes, but NWF has
also certified more than 240
schools and hundreds of busi-
nesses and community sites.
Certified habitats can also be
found everywhere from the post
office, hospitals and places of
worship to community parks,
corporate buildings and munic-
ipal facilities. The average
habitat is between 1/3 and 1/2
acre, but certified sites range
from urban balconies to thou-
sand-acre areas.
Any habitat enthusiast can
create a backyard habitat and
learn the rewards of gardening
for wildlife. NWF teaches the
importance of environmental
stewardship by providing
guidelines for making land-
scapes more hospitable to
wildlife. Habitat restoration is
critical in urban and suburban
settings where commercial and
residential development
encroaches on natural wildlife
areas. In addition to providing


for wildlife, certified habitats
conserve our natural resources
by reducing or eliminating the
need for fertilizers, pesticides
or irrigation water, which ulti-
mately protects the air, soil and
water throughout our communi-
ties.
Habitats can also produce
financial rewards for home-
owners. Realtors will promote
the certified status of homes for
sale, because they see it as. an
added selling feature. It's an
attractive element to many
potential home buyers looking
to share their landscape with
Mother Nature. Potential home-
owners who are attracted to a
house with a certified habitat
are also more likely to maintain
the habitat once they take own-
ership.
NWR has received-numeraeus
testimonials from program par-
ticipants who find their efforts
to create a habitat rewarding
and fun for the whole family.
As*one participant wrote, "I am
a beginner, but judging from the
many birds, squirrels, butter-
flies and rabbits, along with the
flowers blooming everywhere
in my yard, I must be on the
right track." In addition to sites.
certified in the U.S., NWF-cer-
tified habitats have been created
in Canada, Japan, Italy,
Switzerland, Peru and Puerto
Rico, California, Florida, South
Carolina and Pennsylvania
have the most habitats here in
the U.S.
Every applicant also receives
membership to the National
Wildlife Federation, including a
one-year subscription to the
award-winning National
Wildlife magazine with inspir-
ing wildlife articles and amaz-
ing nature photography.
Certified participants also
receive a personalized certifi-
cate and quarterly newsletters


and are eligible to post NWF's
special outdoor sign designat-
ing their yard or garden as
wildlife-friendly.
Few people understand how
just one person can make a dif-
ference. David Mizejewski,
NWF naturalist and host of
Animal Planet's "Backyard
Habitat," says "It's easy to feel
that there is no hope for wildlife
in our modem world of smog,
traffic and asphalt. But there is
hope. Each of us can make our
own piece of the Earth a
healthy, green space that helps
restore the ecological balance."
Encouraging your neighbors to
join with you can lead to a
neighborhood or community
habitat that provides wildlife
with greater incentive to call
your piece of the earth home. .

NWF now offers the most
comprehensive guide to date on
gardening for wildlife, authored
by Mizejewski. The 128-page
Attracting Birds, Butterflies
and Other Backyard Wildlife
won the Independent Publishers
Association's 2005 award for
Best Gardening
Agriculture/Book of the Year. It
is full of practical how-to infor-
mation to make your yard a
wildlife haven and certify your
property as an official NWF
Wildlife Habitat site. The book,
which costs $12.95, is available
online at www.nwforg/back-
yardwildlifehabitat and can also
be ordered by calling (800)
900-2656.

The mission of the National
Wildlife Federation is to inspire
Americans to protect wildlife
for our children's future. The
Florida Wildlife Federation is a
state affiliate of NWF with
offices in Tallahassee and
Naples and has been operating
since 1937.

Lifestyle


Holiday

traditions
One of the holiday tradi-
tions I started a couple of
years ago is visiting
Ellenton's Roaring '20s
Pizza and Pipes during
December. Just a few blocks
east of Ellenton's Outlet
Mall, and an hour and 10
minutes from Golf
Hammock, Pizza and Pipes
is one of Florida's best-kept
secrets. The restaurant itself
reminds me of a beer hall
where you can get beer, as
well as pizza, salad and ice
cream to munch on. The real
treat, however, is listening to
the virtuosity of the organ-
ists who perform daily on
Black Beauty, a Mighty
Wurlitzer pipe organ that
was previously part of a the-
ater in Indianapolis.
Three gentlemen share the
honor of playing Black
Beauty: two originally from
Indianapolis who followed
their instrumental partner
when the organ was trans-
planted to Florida, and a
substitute organist Qriginally
from Michigan. Like at the
theater she was formerly
installed in, Black Beauty
rises out of the floor to an
approximate height of 12
feet so that all can watch as
the organist plays the four-
manual, full-pedaled, majes-
tic instrument. Pizza and
Pipes decorates for
Christmas and the dimmed
lights during the perform-
ances create a magical
atmosphere in which one
expects to hear sleighbells
and reindeer hooves.
Actually, you will hear the
sleighbells, along with
numerous other instruments
that are attached to the organ
so that they create a syn-
chronized accompaniment. I
especially enjoy hearing the
coronets, when the seven-
foot horns blare out holiday
music. They actually warn
the audience the sound will
be loud.
Some of the music is
specifically played to show-
case the 3,000 pipes, but
most of the music is played
by request, and runs the
gamut from classical to
Broadway. Dave, a
Michigander, joked with the
audience that he'd been
asked to play that "other"
fight song and was having
trouble fulfilling the request.
I will admit I did not hear
the Buckeye fight song
while I was there. To learn
more, go to
www.roaring20spizza.com.
Another long-standing tra-
dition of mine is participat-
ing in a group sing of "The
Messiah." In other cities I've
lived, there were community
sings that would have a
practice in the afternoon and
then a performance for the
community in the evening.
Everyone who wanted to
participate was welcome to
join the chorus. We are for-
tunate in Highlands County
to have the Heartland
Symphony and Community
Chorus who performs
Handel's great masterpiece
biannually. This year's per-
formance was Sunday, Dec.,
at South Florida Community
College's Auditorium. To
learn more, go to
http://w3.rz-
berlin.mpg.de/cmp/handel_m
essiah.html.
Finally, I have a heartfelt
request. Especially during
the holiday season, be kind
in your tipping to your wait
staff and entertainers when
you dine out. Many folks are
supporting their families on
the tips that you leave on
your tables.

quickly able to speak English
proficiently within two years.
Nugent has worked with the
Florida Law Related Education
Association Inc. for 20 years,
encouraging civic education
and an understanding of the
Democratic process of the
United States in the schools.
"We want to produce active
citizens. That's what our coun-
try's all about," Nugent said.
FLREA has been involved
with the Civitas International
Civic Education Exchange
Program for the last'nine years
and recently partnered with
Civitas-Panama as part of an
international effort to advance
democracy in Latin American
through civics and citizenship
education initiatives.
Nugent was able to meet
with the minister of education
and the Magistrates of the
Electoral Tribunal, which is a
non-partisan group in Panama.
They work closely with the
schools to provide civic educa-
tion and enrich the curriculum.
The United States delegation


was able to visit three separate
schools and view their "Project
Citizen" programs which are
available in their elementary,
middle schools and high
schools. First the students are
encouraged to uncover prob-
lems in their community. They
then research and discover
what current laws and city
ordinances are in place. After
choosing the best possible
.solution, they resolve it. This
program is an opportunity to
be an active part of their com-
munity and directly affect what
could improve their own
homes and lives.
The issues hit close to home:
One was a business selling
alcohol to minors near the
school. Another was cleaning
up a nearby park where unde-
sirables loitered. Their quest
was to make it safe and clean
for children. The third was a
high school project about teen
pregnancy, which of course
also is an international prob-
lem. All of these steps, from
the brainstorming, making
choices, and solving it call for
a higher level of thinking and a

Some teachers have expressed

will be holding a workshop for
teacher training," Nugent said.
In the country village
Nugent visited, the school only
had air conditioning in one
room. The walls were of block
and the top half was open for
natural circulation of air. There
was no transportation to school
for children, and they had to
bring their own sack lunch.
They wore uniforms and were
very respectful.

Alan Jay, Buick premiere long-awaited Lucerne


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Buick just
released its third new model
in just under a year.
Local customers got a
first-hand look Tuesday
night when Alan Jay
Wildstein personally helped
unveil a brand new garnet
red 2006 Buick Lucerne
CXS:
The unveiling was part of
a nationwide event at all
American Buick dealerships.
Rita Anderson, Buick gener-
al sales manager, said the
automaker has worked two
years on the Lucerne, a.
brand new platform with
new styling and three levels
of trim.
Thanks to her connections
and the dealership's sales
numbers, Wildstein was able
to have all three trim levels
for view Tuesday: An opal
white CX V6 with cloth inte-
rior, a silver CXL V6 with
leather, and a top of the line
CXS sport model.
Ruth Williams of Lake
Placid had bought the silver
CXL on Dec. 9 and brought
it back for Tuesday night's
premiere.
The Lucerne is only her
second Buick, Williams said.
She wanted another with
drastic styling changes, so it
would look and feel new.
The Lucerne is a very

quiet running car, she said,
and powerful enough for
U.S. 27 driving.
"This one will go," she
said.
Although the Lucerne
comes with a gated gearshift
in a center console,- buyers
like Williams can get one
with a bench seat and on-the-
column shifter. When she,
her sisters, her brother-in-
law and nephew drive to
visit family in Homestead,
they like to have a car roomy
enough for all of them.
Anderson said the bench
seat will preserve the older
market while the center con-
sole will attract younger
drivers. The CXS, she said,
earned "Best New Car" in
the $30,000 to $45,000 cate-
gory from Kiplinger's
Personal Finance magazine,
over Acura, Lexus arid
Cadillac models in its class.
Specs
Lucerne drivers can
choose between a 3.6-liter
V6 engine or a 4.6-liter
Northstar V8. The six-cylin-
der provides 197hp at 5,200
RPM and 277 foot-pounds of
torque at 3,800 RPM. The
eight-cylinder delivers
275hp at 6,000 RPM and 295
foot-pounds of' torque at
4,400 RPM.
Either one is powerful,

McMillan said, but quiet and

Medicare therapy

benefits to be capped


Effective Jan. 1, GU
2006, Medicare G
beneficiaries,
including senior JeffL
citizens and people
with disabilities,
face a limit on. the
amount of physical therapy
services that can be received.
The current moratorium, which
was part of the Medicare
Modernization Act of 2003,
ends on Dec. 31, 2006.
Medicare' recipients will
experience an annual limit of
$1,740 for outpatient therapy
services, limiting access to non-
hospital outpatient centers.
This arbitrary .cap will limit
access to therapy services if a
patient experiences more than
one episode of care requiring
therapy in a calendar year not
uncommon for Medicare bene-
ficiaries. For example, if a
Medicare patient has a knee
replacement and receives
$1,740 in therapy, and then suf-
fers a stroke or some other
impairment that requires thera-
py services later in the same
calendar year, Medicare will
not cover those services if the
$1,740 limit has already been
reached.
Therefore patients who chose
to receive therapy at non-hospi-
tal based facilities that may
exceed the cap limits face three
options: Pay out of pocket,
forgo further physical therapy
treatment or initiate/transfer
care to a hospital-based rehabil-
itation center. Hospital based
outpatient physical therapy cen-
ters, such as the Highlands


COLUMN
adinsky


Regional
Rehabilitation
Center, are exempt
from the cap. It is
estimated that


when the therapy
caps goes into
effect, 15-20 percent of seniors
and persons with disabilities
will see their outpatient rehabil-
itation services provided by
physical therapists, occupation-
al therapists, and speech lan-
guage pathologists limited to
this arbitrary amount.
Studies by the American
Physical Therapy Association
have shown that beneficiaries
do not receive the therapy serv-
ices that they need will not
achieve their full level of func-
tional independence. As a
result, they are likely to need
other medical services that they
would not have required if they
had received their full course of
therapy treatment. This could
possibly result in a shifting of
health care costs to Medicare
Part A or to the Medicaid pro-
gram.
Please discuss the impending
Medicare therapy benefits cap
with your doctor before choos-
ing a facility to ensure continu-
ity of your care.

Jeff Ladinsky has a master of
science in physical therapy, is a
certified strength and condi-
tioning specialist and MTC, as
well as director of rehabilita-
tion services at Highlands
Regional Medical Center in

Truthfully, she has to nudge
me time and time again to get

Christmas cards, the tree with
all its mini lights ... but I keep
putting it off because I don't
have "the feeling of Christmas"

can remember when
EBOOK times were a. whole
lot tougher than they
Jingacci are today ... like one
winter in Maryland,
when Dottie, myself
and the kids, went into the
woods and gathered crowfoot,
standing cedar and holly ... the
materials needed to make
wreaths that those little ones of
ours could sell from door to
door and, of course, the pro-
ceeds helped to make our sea-
Sson bright.
I once found a toy fire truck
on the scrap pile at Fort George
G. Meade, (where I was work-
ing). It was in sad shape. I spent
three weeks of my spare time in
the shed, renewing it and
wouldn't allow Young Louie to
come and see what I was doing.
Yes, 1 was restoring it to
work properly and look like
new. With new wheels and a
brand new fire engine red paint
job, along with a shiny new
ding dong bell on its hood. It
was the only toy little Louie got
'for Christmas.
Santa, of course, left it under
the tree that I had cut down and
dragged home. What spare we
had usually went for children's
clothing, which we wrapped
I


vaila

of Christmas


and placed under it, as gifts
from Santa.
There are other Yule-tide sea-
sons to remember, like:
When I was an altar boy and
while serving Midnight Mass,
fell asleep along with two other
youngsters and had to be car-
ried off to the sacristy to sleep
through the rest of the Mass.
Then there was the Christmas
Eve when we rode the snow
mobiles in the brightness of the
starlit snow. That was up in the
mountains of West Maryland.
Grantsville, to be exact, where
they average 150 .inches of
snowfall a year.
Yes, I'll never forget that
night. After storing the snow
mobiles away, we were down in
the basement by the furnace,
changing into dry clothing
while listening to the local radio
forecaster. Boy, did he make a
boo boo! He said, "We'll be
having flo snurries tonight!" He
was right, in a way. It did snow
that night. About two feet of it.
We had to go out to the barn and
attach the plow to the tractor,
then, spending all of Christmas
day, clearing the road ... all the
way out to the highway.
On another Christmas Eve, I
can remember stomping my
foot on the roof of my brother-
in-law's house in Miami, as I
stood there all decked out in my
Santa Claus suit. I did that until
all the kids came running out to
see what all that racket was! I
must admit that I near broke my
fool neck climbing down from
there in the dark ... that is, after
I had waved them all farewell.
All the past Christmas sea-


sons have been special to me in
one form or another, but one in
particular I hold dear to my
heart: It was right here in
Sebring when employed by Jim
Blackman Ford. I was asked to
play Santa Claus to a poor fam-
ily of migrant workers.
Dressed in that red Santa
suit, black boots and white
beard, I headed my pickup with
all the toys and food provided
me. Sitting along side of me
was a teddy bear so large, that
he appeared to be a passenger ...
or a Santa's helper, if you wish.
I took off with all the
employees cheering, me on and
arrived at my destination within
10 to 15 minutes.
I played Santa, all right.
Talking with those little ones
and giving them all the toys and
presenting the food-to their par-
ents.
The youngest child was crazy
over the teddy bear that was.
larger than he was. All of the
children in the family were so.
happy that they cried. Then
their mother cried ... and you.
guessed it. I cried. It reminded
me of when I was in dire straits.
I saw that family many times
after that, at one place or anoth-
er and never revealed to them it
had been me in that red suit ....
but sometimes 1 think that they
knew all along, but let me have
my magic moment.
Magic. moment? It was a
wonderful moment ... a true
feeling of Christmas.

Taxes should

allow a vote
Editor:
No taxation without repre-
sentation. That was a slogan
during the birth of our country.
The Placid Lakes Homeowners
Association does not under-
stand or acknowledge this con-
cept.
People who live in Placid


'Our keeping of secrets has often misled and

confused our own people but has been ineffective in

denying information to our enemies or competitors.

... Let us pass a law requiring all secret documents

to be published one year after their issuance.'
EDWARD TELLER, nuclear physicist, 1992


Lakes or own property there
are not allowed to vote for
"elected" homeowners officers
or for proposals put forth by
them unless we pay to join their
association. We are already
taxed $20 per lot for living
inside the district. The $20 flat
fee, whether it's on a vacant lot,
improved lot, or a canal or on
Lake August home, seems the
mother of all regressive taxes. I
would argue that anyone who
owns property within the sub-
.division and therefore has a
X061 Placid Lakes SBD on
their tax bill is entitled to vote.
Otherwise, membership in
the homeowners association
must be construed to be a poll
tax. Poll taxes were enacted
after the Civil War during
reconstruction days in the
South to discourage blacks
from voting. The Supreme
Court has determined that poll
taxes are illegal. According to
the county planning depart-
ment, there are 6,500 lots in the
subdivision. The homeowners
association claims a member-
ship of 320. This would lead
me to believe that they have no
popular support.
The association continues to
hold meetings, voting on wild
proposals usurping not only the
authority of the county com-
mission, but also denying the
constitutional rights of the resi-
dents in a building. The county
fire service (385-1112) has
rated at a massive occupancy of
15!
The whirlwind purchase of
that structure would justify a
segment on "60 Minutes."
The remedy for these prob-
lems are simple. The county
commission must enact a uni-
form county homeowner's

association code. Anyone
wanting to run for office should
come under the authority of the
supervisor of elections and be
on the ballot on election day.
That person should be limited
to shuffleboard, darts, pinochle
and ping pong.
We have a legislature and a
county commission to pass
laws, hire people and run coun-
ty government.
It will probably be necessary
for a civil minded, patriotic
attorney to step forward and
explain; probably in a court of
law these simple fundamentals
of democracy to these dolts. To
the county commissioners who
have allowed these fascists to
run roughshod over the consti-
tution, a pox on your house.
Are there any freedom loving
patriots out there?
The 10,000 owners and resi-
dents of Placid Lakes have
voted by their non-attendance
and non-membership in the
homeowners association. We
do not want them. We do not
want to attend meetings in their
fire trap. Must we have another
Boston Tea Party? Remember,
if by 1 land, 2 if by sea.
The next time the association
president appears at the county
commission, someone should
ask him how many votes he
received. If his answer exceeds
50, he probably cannot count.

This is not what

was intended

Editor:
Although I don't normally
write to the paper on this sub-
ject, I have recently come to an
understanding that I wanted to
put in writing. You might call it
an epiphany.
We live in a time when
Christian values that have long
stood as the supporting pillars
of this nation have methodical-
ly and systematically begun to
be challenged.
At first, I didn't realize the
how, what and when of the
attack; but now I have come to
a painful realization. We have
seen the attempts of removing
prayer from schools for several


years now. We have seen the
attempt at removing "In God
We Trust" from our currency.
We have witnessed the attempts
to remove any Scripture (like
the Ten Commandments) from
the front lawn of governmental
buildings. And now more
recently, we hear of the attempt
to remove what some would
call "offensive season's greet-
ings."
Merry Christmas is now con-
sidered a possible offensive
statement to someone who may
not be of that religious persua-
sion. How did that happen?
How did it come to this? More
importantly, why are we even
having to defend ourselves in
this manner? I think I know the
answer.
It started on the day we all
agreed that this great nation
was a smorgasbord of religions
and that each religion possesses
no higher authority over the
others. After all, this is a demo-
cratic government with a con-
stitution that grants freedom of
speech, press and yes, religion.
A man is entitled (to a certain
extent) by the powers of our
constitution to speak his mind,
write what he wishes and
believe what he wishes.
Whether Buddhist, Hindu,
Muslim or Christian, each
reserves the right to practice his
or her religion without fear of
persecution and/or judgment.
Other than an obvious
encroachment on basic human
rights, when did we agree that
the practice of one religion
should be offensive to another
religion? When did we agree
that all religions have an equal
voice in this country?
These may sound like harsh
words. Even bigotry, perhaps.
But is it really? I know it isn't.
To allow the existence of a reli-
gion is not necessarily an
endorsement of it.
Our forefathers, although
tolerant of all religions and
welcoming all races, colors and
faiths were devout Christian
men who founded this nation
on Christian principles. In
short, this nation was a
Christian nation.
At some point, however, we
dropped the ball and decided
that this nation is not a
Christian nation but rather a
collection of all religions. This
was our failure. This was our
grand mistake. We (Christians)


failed them. This is not what
our forefathers intended. What
should we have done? Well, in
hindsight I can clearly see
where we went wrong and what
we should've done. We should
have done what they did.
Our nation should've
remained a Christian nation
based on Christian principles.
Our beliefs (Scripture) teach us
to be tolerant of all other faiths,
admonishing them with love
and living a life that serves as
an example for others to follow.
We never impose our beliefs on
others. We should've wel-
comed all religions and even
allowed them to .practice their
traditions, observe their holy
days and celebrate their reli-
gious holidays. But by no
means would they have been
allowed to impose their beliefs
on us. It should've been clearly
stated for all who wish to live
in this great country; that this is
a Christian nation and we will
observe our holy days. We will
practice our traditions. And we
will most certainly celebrate
our religious holidays.
Furthermore, I would make
it very clear for all who feel
that our religious holidays
and/or traditions are offensive
to their personal beliefs; we, as
a Christian nation, that has
been so richly blessed, have
never restricted anyone who
wishes to enter this country and
in the same manner would
never restrict anyone who
wishes to leave; for whatever
reason (other than criminal), be
it political, religious or person-
al.
The problem was born the
moment we agreed that this
nation was not a Christian
nation but rather a melting pot
for all religions and all beliefs.
At that point,, they all stood as
equals and none had any
authority over the others.
Again, this was our mistake.
However, even as it stands,


the religious equality that we
are seeing is actually not equal
at all. Everything offensive
seems to be skewed against
Christianity in particular.
Hollywood often portrays
the characters with an anti-
Christian view point. The psy-
chic witch doctor is the intelli-
gent hero but the preacher is
often the bumbling idiot or
worse yet, the demented vil-
lain.
We, as Christians, have
never objected to Hanukkah
and yet, some find offense with
the celebration of Christmas.
We have never complained or
interfered with Muslim holy
days and fasts and yet, Easter
(the day we observe as the res-
urrection of our Lord Jesus
Christ) is thought to be offen-
sive to some. Prayer from
schools, "In God We Trust," the
Ten Commandments, and the
"Christ out of Christmas" or
"X-mas" campaign are all
attacks on one religion in par-
ticular Christianity.
I find that extremely offen-
sive, disturbing and ironic.
Offensive: Because in the name
of equality they choose to
attack only one religion.
Disturbing: Because the very
moral Christian fiber upon
which this nation was built, is
being carefully and systemati-
cally unraveled. And ironic
because the very thing that
made us great is the very thing
being attacked.
There is an interesting obser-
vation and analogy in the story
of the destruction of the two
biblical cities of Sodom and
Gomorrah that may shed better
light on the irony of it all.
Scripture states that God had
purposed to destroy both cities
due to their persistent wicked-
ness. In the story, Abraham
pleads with God and asks if he
would spare the cities from
destruction if there be found in
them 50 righteous. God replies

that he would not destroy the
cities if, in fact, there were 50
righteous in them.
Abraham very carefully
brings that number down to 10.
God replies that he would not
destroy the cities if even 10
righteous were found it. We
know how the story ends. Not
even 10 righteous were found
in them and God utterly
destroyed both cities which
were never rebuilt again.
Herein is the irony: I am
convinced that the true
Christians that live in this
country are the very thing that
keeps this nation from being
destroyed. We are under attack
and yet because of us they
stand. If we concede to their
desires, the nation would fall.
Our nation is already showing
signs of weakness only because
we are showing signs of weak-
ness.
As the health of Christianity
suffers so does the health of the
nation. To quote His word,
"Blessed. is the nation whose
God is the Lord..." Psalms
32:12.
Perhaps we should consider
the inverse: "Cursed is the
nation whose God is not the
Lord."

Spirit of

holidays is back

Editor:
Because that "old age" thing
had crept up on me and I was-
n't feeling in a Merry
Christmas and happy mood, I
really "got lucky:" Many of my
good friends came to my rescue
and have kept me so enter-
tained I will never feel sorry for
myself again. So please, let me
publicly thank some of these


people.
To Bob and Dawn Kuribisky
and Brantley Real Estate for
the delicious food and accom-
modations for so many people
on the night of the Lake Placid
parade. I had not been able to
be in or see this parade for the
past two years and it was a real
joy.
Thanks also to Dawn and
Bob for the nighttime ride on
Lake Grassy in their gorgeous
decorated boat. The fun parties
at Sun 'N Lakes Club House
and the many lunches and din-
ners.
And last and certainly not
least as guest of Cecil and
Gladys McFarland to see
"Yuletide Treasure," an origi-
nal play written by Rachel
Moore with performances by
the good people of Restoration
Church of Sebring. The stage
settings were awesome and the
acting and ballet dancers all
deserved a standing ovation.
Sandy Lopes of the Potter's
House and Children of Promise
Baby Ministry had a large table
in the lobby of pictures of chil-
dren that are up for adoption. I
have been associated with the
Potter's House for many years
and to any of you who have
time to spare, volunteers are
needed. Please give Sandy a
call at 699-1685 and if you can,
try and see this wonderful play
at the Restoration Church.
I am so grateful and blessed.
Merry Christmas and a happy
and healthy new year.

Rebound from first-round

loss to win championship


News-Sun
SEBRING It's all about
getting hot at the right time.
All season long, the Sebriig
Sunshine Boys traveling soft-
ball team was rated next-to-last
in the lowest of the three brack-
ets in the 70s age division.
That didn't seem to matter
come tournament time, howev-
er, as the Sunshine Boys
shocked the state by winning
the championship at the Florida
Half Century tourney in
Lakeland Dec. 3-4.
"We were led by the pitching
of Warren Watson, he only
walked one batter in six
games," said longtime manager
Harry Bell, adding that the state
title was his, most satisfying
moment as a manager. "The
offense was led by Fred
Moore's and grand-slam home
run and two home runs hit by
David Robertson. Harry
Thurber had a perfect day on


Sunday.
"Other key players were Moe
Pier, John Astache, Gary
Vanthoumout and Dick Balz.
The defense of Harry Bell,
Rocky Socarras, John Klaet
played a big role in the wins."
In the first game, however, it
looked like the ratings may
have been right as the
Roadhouse Steak team dimmed
the Sunshine Boys' outlook
with a 16-1 rout.
The rebound was quick. The
Sunshine Boys came back to
win their next five games in a
row starting with a 13-10 win
over the Tampa 70s later that
day.
On the second day of the
tourney, the Sunshine Boys beat
Clearwater 14-10 and then the
Branson Bulls 18-4 in five
innings to win their bracket.
The big win over Branson
got the Sunshine Boys on a roll
and they beat Barney's of Port

McDonalds win 7 golds at Florida Senior Games


By SCOTT DRESSEL
S., ts E.iu.,r
LAKE PLACID
H hanging frori the ceiling in
the office of the McDohald
home on Lake June are
medals that line most o one
wall and parts of two others. Mot
belong to Dr. Tom McDonald,
although his wife, Jeri, is starting a
nice collection of her own.
They will both have to clear off
some more wall space after their per
formances in the Florida Senior Games
State Championships held Dec. 3-11 n
The Villages.
The duo teamed up to win seven
gold medals five by Tom and two
by Jeri and probably had the folks
that run the games tired of calling out
their name by the end.
"They had to announce somebody's
(name)," Tom, 81, said. "It might as
well be us."


In thie SO-84- .ge group. Tom \"on
gold in the 2'00-meier dash ,47. I0 sec-
onds), the 400-meter dash (1:47.04),
the 800-meter run (3:57.19), the 1,500
meter run (8:14.05) and the 5-kilome-
ter run (27:53).
He probably could have had more,
too.
"I wish I'd have done the 100
(meters)," he said. "I'd have had a
clean sweep. I have a good feeling that
I probably would have (won it)."
Winning multiple medals is nothing
new for Tom, a retired dentist who has
been competing in the Florida Senior
.Games for around 10 years in addition
to being successful on the national
level, breaking two records and win-
ning four gold medals at the World
Senior Games in Utah.last year.
Overall, he figures he's won
between 150 and 200 medals.
"Sometimes (competitors) come up
to himl because he does not look 80,"


Jen said of her husband. "He's Ir.sh.
and there',s a strain of Irishmen that
don't get gray (hair) and he's just now
getting a few gray hairs.
"A lot of runners will come up and
say, 'I want to see your I.D.'"
Jeri, 77, won her 75-79 age group in
the 1,500 meters (13:21.33) and 5 kilo-
meters (45:21), which were the only
two events in race walking, which is
arguably tougher than the running
events in which her husband excels
since technique is as important as
speed.
"The unique thing about race walk-
ing is you can be disqualified if you
don't do it properly," Jeri said. "The
hard thing is that when your body
weight goes from your front foot to
your back foot, your knee has to be
straight.
"At every race walk, they'll have at

there was no let down in any of
the games, that is great for 70-
year-olds.
"We had the 3 Hs hustle,
heart and hunger to win."

All-Star


Classic


kicks off


Saturday
By SCOTR DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING One last time.
That sentiment applies to a lot
of the players who will be taking
to Firemen's Field on Saturday for
the seventh South-Central Florida
All-Star Football Classic. Of the
80 or so players who take the field
to play for the South and Central
teams, only a handful will get to
play at the next level.
Which makes the Classic their
last hurrah on the football field.
So far, the series has proved to
be a competitive one. The Central
team, made up this year of seniors
from Avon Park, Bartow,
Frostproof, Haines City, Hardee,
Lake : Placid, Okeechobee,
Mulberry and Sebring high
schools and coached by Jared
Hamlin of Sebring, rolled to a 42-
20 win last year to even things up
at three wins for each side.
The South squad will feature
players from Charlotte, DeSoto,
LaBelle, Lemon Bay, Moore
Haven, North Port and Port
Charlotte high schools and is
coached by Mike Messina of
Lemon Bay.
Matt Gose, organizer of the
game for Sebring Firemen Inc.,
said preparations have been going
well.
"We've landed all of our schol-
arship sponsors, so we'll be giving

CLASSIC
Continued from 1E
said.
This year's scholarships will make a total of
$28,000 given to players over the history of the
Classic, which is the whole purpose of having the
game in the firstplace.
"We don't look to make money," Gose said.
"The Firemen understand that this is not a money


maker by any means. In fact, we usually lose a
little."
Gose said around 350 letters were sent out to
college scouts to. inform them of the.game, and
several have been on hand at practices and there
will also be several at the game itself.
"They're getting a lot of looks," he said of the
players.
SKickoff is set for 5 p.m. on Saturday. Parking
and a program is $5 and gate admission is $5.


MEDAL
Continued from 1E
least four judges and a head judge, and you
don't necessarily know where they are or who
they are. If they see you getting lazy and bend-
ing your knee, they'll give you a warning and if
you get more than two warnings, you're out. Or,
if they see you doing something that would be a
jog or a run, they'll take you off the course right
then."
Jeri said it's not uncommon to see people
enter the running events simply because there
aren't any other entries in that age group, mean-
ing an easy medal.
"They don't do that in race walking," she
said. "A lot of people who thought they could
walk with us join the runners."
While the results would seem to say other-
wise, Tom said his performance at the Senior
Games wasn't routine.
"I don't like to take anything for granted," he
said. "You never know."


One thing it's not hard to know, however, is
that the string of medals hanging from that
office ceiling most likely has a lot more growing
to do.
mnn
The McDonald's weren't the only local ath-
letes to bring home some hardware from the
Senior Games.
Just to name a few, Lake Placid's Michael
Murphy won the 65-69 age group in the 1,500-
meter race walk in 11:14.89, Evelyn Gooding
and Melvin Ford of Sebring rolled an 821 series
for second in the bowling mixed doubles 80-84
age group and Gooding won the same age group
in the women's singles ivith a 506 series and
Gail Brown of Sebring was third in the women's
golf 65-69 age group. Brown shot an 85, which
got her in a three-way tie atop the standings
before the tiebreaker.
