LAKE PLACID Frank
Venditto wants to open a
coin-operated amusement
arcade in the town. He may
have that opportunity in the
future if the Lake Placid
Town Council repeals a sec-
tion of town code.
When the Lake Placid
Town Council heard
Venditto's case Monday
night, members debated
whether the arcade would
constitute gambling. Other
cities seem to be facing the
same dilemma.
The coin-operated arcades
use machines that are similar
to slot machines. Users push a
button to align a series of pic-
tures such as oranges,
watermelons or pineapples. If
they succeed they can win
game tokens, coupons and
merchandise.
State law prohibits games
of chance, but because the
users control the machines
with a push of a button, some
consider them to be games of
skill.
Town Zoning Director Jim
LaRue has told Venditto his
proposed arcade would com-
ply with town code. However,
section 107.2 of town code
prohibits gambling establish-
ments, and _the council had
trouble deciding if Venditio'.
proposed business w would con-
stitute a gambling establish-


ment.
In any case, similar busi-
nesses exist in Highlands
County in fact, one is the
Let It Roll,Game Room at
1505 U.S. 27 South in Lake
Placid and there is one in
Sebring and one in Avon
Park. Venditto said the state
allows amusement arcades
under certain circumstances
and that his would comply
with state guidelines.
Venditto wanted to open a
50-machine .arcade next to
Hartzell's Market on Interlake
Boulevard and operate it from
10 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day.
To do that, according to Town
Attorney Bert J. Harris II, a
section of the town code must
be repealed or significantly
altered.
When the council declined
to act on the matter deciding
instead to take it up at its
February meeting Venditto
said the business opportunity
would pass him by because
another party also wants to
lease the store. However, he
said he might look for other
places in town where an
arcade could be operated.
Among the issues the coun-
cil could not resolve was the
proposed, arcade's proximity
to residential areas. Council-
woman Debra Worley said it
would d be too close io homes.

Purple Heart dedication set

By BARRY FOSTER

SEBRING City public
works crews have set the flag-
pole in place and preparations
are well under way for a

But there has been a glitch of

the man coordinating the cere-

yet arrived.
"It looks like at this point
we're going to consecrate the
ground rather than dedicate a
monument," he said Tuesday.
The marker actually.. was

Enterprises in Jersey City, N.J.
"We've put these all across

Delasi said. "They were so
happy with the one we did, they
had us do one for each state."
It's not a small piece. Snidow
said the India red granite stone

A motorcycle lays off to the side of U.S. 27 down by Buttonwood Bay
in Sebring Tuesday. Roger Londo was riding his motorcycle when a
pallet came loose from the top of Deryck Taylor's white Chevy
Liberty and flew into the road way. Londo was unable to avoid the
pallet and hit it causing his motorcycle to crash onto the road.
Taylor was cited with failure to secure load.


of the Industrial Development
Authority and Economic
Development Commission,
said Tuesday.
The new Amerikan plant will
employ between 35-40 people.
Butwell Soil and Stone created
three new jobs. Cascade Water,
Holiday Inn Express and
Elberta Crate and Box
Company each created 20 new
jobs. Holiday Inn Express was
scheduled to open in November
2004 and is still under construc-
tion, Mechlin said, but building


was delayed by hurricanes.
Amerikan is expected to open
this summer.
Mechlin said the IDA/EDC
wants to increase prospective
development meaning hav-
ing more sites either developed
or fitted with infrastructure -
create a business incubator for
Highlands County, increase pri-
vately owned and operated
industrial parks, increase partic-
ipation in regional economic
development organizations,
increase EDC membership,


make businesses more aware of
IDA/EDC services, and docu-
ment EDC activities so people
will know what's been done.
Development
Louise England, IDA/EDC
executive director, said indus-
trial prospects ask about exist-
ing buildings or land with infra-
structure either installed or
nearby.
"We've tried to get specula-
tive building. Highlands
County is growing," England


said. "We haven't had any
(buildings) yet. Now, the
chance is very much there."
John Shoop, IDA/EDC vice-
chairman, said someone has to
pay taxes, maintenance and
security costs for a building
while it sits empty. Only large
industrial parks will show
enough profit for private devel-
opers to consider it.
Mechlin warned that indus-
trial parks need to be both iden-
tified and built before new

DSAC gets first look at new


physical education program


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Members of
the Highlands County District
School Board Advisory
Council got their first look at
the new physical education
program being developed for
public schools.
The material presented to.
members Monday night is
only the first draft of what will
eventually be a detailed and
highly specific program.
There are two main goals:
First to provide an assess-
ment of each child's overall
physical condition and ability
every year. This assessment
will not be graded, but rather
is designed to be informative,
allowing teachers, and espe-
cially students and parents, to
develop physical fitness goals.
The Florida Sunshine State
Standards set out general


health benchmarks, and the
American Heart Association
guidelines also served as a
template.
The second goal is to create
a network of communication
and standardization between
educational levels and
schools, in order to develop a
program that is not redundant,
but builds on itself and
expands students' possibilities
throughout their school
careers.
Dr. Anne Lindsay, director
of curriculum, emphasized
that the proposed plan is only
the beginning. Over time the
standards will become more
rigorous, but the initial pro-
gram is designed to be feasible
with current resources, which
are limited in some of the larg-
er schools. Currently, each
school has a physical educa-
tion teacher and one parapro-


fessional.
Students in elementary
schools should receive 60
minutes of physical education
every week, of which at least
40 minutes should be spent ir
activity of moderate intensity.
Students in middle and high
schools should receive at least
150 minutes of physical edu-
cation every week, of which at
least 100 minutes are spent in
activity of'moderate intensity
The balance of the time may
be used for classroom instruc-
tion or related topics.
Students with disabilities,
who cannot participate, will be
provided with an .illtm.ilie
program. Students who partic-
ipate in athletics would be
exempt.
To graduate from high
school, a student must com-
plete at least .5 credit in phys-

HIGHLY ANS

in brief

Power takes

out LPHS
Another day off from
school may have suited the
students at Lake Placid
High School just fine, but
the timing was all wrong.
Students were sent home
Tuesday morning after a'
large transformer failed,
and power to the school
went out. But, the biggest
problem came in the fact
that this is exam week for
county students.
Since the closest
replacement transformer
was in Wildwood, it was
estimated repairs would
take eight to 10 hours,
which is why school closed
for the day.

SEBRING Retiring
Executive Director Allon Fish
was honored by Sebring
Chamber of Commerce mem-
bers at the January breakfast
Tuesday morning.
He was presented with a
framed resolution thanking him
for his many years of contribu-
tions to chambers of commerce
around the country, and to
Sebring's in particular, where
he has served since Jan. 2,
1996.
While Fish's retirement
won't be official until Jan. 31,
he will be spending most on the
intervening time on vacation.
Interviews for his replace-
ment are ongoing and it is
expected that a new director
will be found by March.
David Duke, of the Regional
Aeromed Transport Program,
addressed the breakfast meet-
ing, which was sponsored by
Highlands Regional Medical
Center.

including amputations.
The state-of-the-art helicop-

30 minutes.
In addition to delivering
patients in crisis to trauma cen-

County hires Flowers as facilities manager


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING David Flowers
hoped to continue serving the
public, and on Tuesday, he got
his wish.
Highlands County commis-
sioners hired the former county
commissioner and sheriff can-
didate as the new county facili-
ties manager. Ranked first by
the search committee, Flowers
will receive $45,000 per year
and answer directly to Assistant
County Administrator Tom
.Portz. ,:. ,. ,.:.
While..RqIrt will be is.direct
supervisor, Flowers said his
bosses will remain the people of
Highlands County.
"I believe I got in on my mer-
its and the support of the board
of county commissioners,"
Flowers said.
Commissioner Guy Maxcy
said it was a close race, but both
he and Commissioners Edgar


Stokes were impressed with
Flowers' resume. He worked
with the sheriff's office for 10
years before pursuing his per-
sonal lawn care business and
elected offices for the last 12


years.
"I don't
expect to
receive any
special treat-
ment based on
my former sta-
tus with the
county," he
said.
While at the


FLOWERS

sheriff'saoffice,


Flowers worked with the Drug
Enforcement Agency as an
undercover agent and led the
county's multi-agency drug
task force. He has also served
on the Avon Park City Council
and the county commission. He
holds a Bachelor's degree in
Administration and Criminal
Justice from Mountain State


University in West Virginia,
which he completed in
December 2003.
Flowers sold his lawn care
business in August 2003. He
intended to wait until after the
election in November 2004, but
a man approached him with a
good offer. After the primary
election, he put in a bid for gen-
eral manager of the Sun 'N
Lake of Sebring Improvement
District. He was not first in the
running for that job either.
The county has been without
a facilities manager since April
2004. The task is very similar to
what Flowers did with his lawn
care business. He will oversee
all the maintenance of the coun-
ty grounds and buildings. The
department has 18-20 employ-
ees with about two maintenance
technicians.
He still plans to wear a tie,
but only for department head
meetings.


Stewart asked to
outline it
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Faced with
uncertainty over how fast the
county may grow, county com-
missioners may create a strate-
gic plan.
If successful, they might
avoid some of the pitfalls that
plagued coastal counties when
populations spiked during the
last three or four decades. On
Tuesday, Commission Chair-
man Andrew Jackson asked
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart, who has specific expe-
rience as a planner, to help by
outlining discussions of this
plan within the next few weeks.
She suggested that the coun-
ty commissioners should decide
what they want to see in the
next few decades, and.then ask
county staff to make sugges-
tions of how to get there. A
long-range plan 20 or 30
years will work better, she
said. In the meantime, depart-
ment heads could let commis-
sioners know exactly what their
departments do, how its done,
and with which people.
"We need to sit and work
through this process first, then
involve staff when we get clos-
er to implementation," Stewart
said. "We're the weak link at
this point."
Commissioners spent most
of the morning hearing how
county departments plan ahead.
Development Services has the


comprehensive land use plan,
but changes to the plan must be
approved by the Department of
Community Affairs. Last sum-
mer, DCA rejected changes
aimed at preparing for future
development and land specula-
tion because county staff could-
n't prove it was needed. The
10-year capital improvement
plan has several infrastructure
projects mostly roads in
the works. They get delayed by
funding, cost and right-of-way
problems.
The Road and Bridge
Department has a five-year
road program to stay ahead on
maintenance and avoid rebuild-
ing roads. The Economic
Development Commission has
an annual strategic plan aimed
at providing the infrastructure
and land development to bring
in more business, and thus more
jobs.
Finally, the Highlands
County Library System works
with the Florida State Library
Board and a local advisory
board from the community to
determine what services people
need and how to fund them.
The plan looks five years ahead
and includes such things as how
large bookstores make cus-
tomers feel relaxed.
Each department head said if
there are any weaknesses, they
said, it happens when a plan
either is not specific enough to
have addressed every issue or
there hasn't been enough long-
range thought into which direc-
tion to take.

Avon Park marches toward Lotela annexation


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK Nearly a
decade ago the city of Sebring
went on an aggressive cam-
paign that resulted in the annex-
ation of a large chunk of prop-
erty that extended past
Highlands Regional Medical
Center to the south and encom-
passed a triangle stretching up
U.S. 27 west of the city.
Now, Avon Park City
Councilman George Hall has a
similar idea. His sights are set
squarely on the Lake Lotela
area.
"One of my campaign prom-


ises was to look into annexation
and try to expand the city's tax
base," he said.
Hall reported things started
to come together about six
months ago when residents in
the Lake Lotela area expressed
interest in annexing into the
city.
"I think they got some more
motivation after the hurricanes
when they were without water
for a good period of time
because they were without
power and they're on wells," he
said. "They were pretty inter-
ested in city services."
Hall has made it' clear on


CLARIFICATION


In the story "Center for Great
Apes" article in the Jan. 9 edi-
tion, the information pertaining
to Clyde, the orangutan star of
"Any Which Way But Loose"
should have been attributed to
the Web site at
people.bath.ac. uk/mn2gm/clyde


the.htm.
Officials at the Center for
Great Apes did not give that
information.
The News-Sun apologizes for
any confusion this may have
caused.


numerous occasions that he has
had no interest in extending the
city's utilities without assur-
ances that annexation would be
in the picture.
That hasn't always been done
in the past.
And it's not only the tax base
that Hall is interested in, he
cites what he terms "people
resources."
Hall said once the residents
become Avon Park citizens he
hoped they could be prevailed
upon to serve.
A number of area residents
already have volunteered to
serve on an ad hoc committee to
look into the annexation ques-
tion.
The five member panel will
meet to discuss the issue, with
Hall as the council's liaison.

Town agrees to join county's


Local Mitigation Strategy Plan


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The Lake
Placid Town Council has
agreed to join the county's
Local Mitigation Strategy plan,
but it wants the county to cut its
participation fee by $1,000.
Assistant County Admini-
strator Tom Portz and several
representatives of the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency came to the council's
meeting Monday to tout the
benefits of participating in the
plan.
The state Department of
Community Affairs wants com-
munities to become better pre-
pared to meet natural and tech-
nological disasters, and it is
providing funding to help areas
develop local mitigation strate-
gies.
Once the plan is in place, the
county will be allotted at least
$1.5 million of hazardous miti-
Sgation grant funds. That money
will be parceled out between
participants in the plan and will
be used for projects that would
benefit the community during
disasters or hazardous situa-
tions.
The state has charged coun-
ties to come up with a local
working group. It will review
and rank the projects identified
in the plan and decide what
ones should be funded.
Every participating commu-
nity will have at least one proj-
ect in the Local Mitigation
Strategy plan. These can
include developing certain
kinds of infrastructure such
as more hurricane shelters, for
-example, which is something
the Lake Placid Town Council
wants. However, projects must
be identified in the plan before
they are eligible for funding.
Being part of the plan might
help the town receive certain
small-town community block
development grants, Portz said.
Some funding agencies give
extra points to municipalities
that have a Local Mitigation
Strategy plan, and Portz said
those points can be enough to
decide who gets grants and who
doesn't.
To get the maximum amount
of benefit from its participation,


the town will also have to join
the National Flood Insurance
Program, which it has declined
to do in the past. Portz said par-
ticipation in the NFIP isn't
required in order to be part of
the Local Mitigation Strategy
plan, but it is required by some
of the agencies that provide
grant funding to participants in
the plan.
Portz estimated that the
town's cost for participating in
the plan would be $3,000.
When Councilwoman Debra
Worley made a motion to
approve the town's participa-
tion, she recommended that it
try to negotiate that figure down
to $2,000, and that the town
also join the National Flood
Insurance Program. The motion
passed unanimously.
DCA approves Local
Mitigation Strategy plans. A
mitigation strategy should serve
as a bridge between such things
as local comprehensive growth
management plans, county-
wide emergency plans, land
development regulations, build-
ing codes and floodplain man-
agement. The plan combines all
of the mitigation initiatives in
these codes into a single docu-
ment.
Highlands County's Local
Mitigation Strategy plan was


developed in 1999 through
funding by the state of Florida,
Portz said. At that time, the
Central Florida Regional
Planning Council was the coor-
dinator.
For the version now being
drafted, the city of Avon Park
will be listed as the contracting
agency, and the plan will be
managed by Preston Colby. The
plan will take in the three
municipalities, the county, the
Sun 'N Lake Improvements
District and the Sebring
Regional Airport.
The plan must be updated
every few years, Portz said. The
last time that happened was

2001. The county was in the
process of completing its 2003
update over the summer, but
that was delayed when three
hurricanes hit the state a few
weeks apart.
On Feb. 15 the county 'ill
submit its final draft to FEMA,
Portz said. FEMA is expected
to approve the plan by April 1,
and then it will go to the state
Department of Community
Affairs for final approval in
mid-summer.
Until the plan is in place, the
county is ineligible for the
Local Mitigation Funds being
handed out by DCA.


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING County
Commissioner Guy Maxcy
does not expect a lot out of
Thursday's meeting with the
speaker of the Florida House of
Representatives.
Apparently a "seat at the
table" on discussions of how to
fund the Department of
Juvenile Justice without pass-
ing costs on to the counties his
degenerated into "15 minutes at
10 a.m. Thursday morning,"
Marcy said Tuesday.
He said that's hardly enough
time for people to complete
greetings, let alone come to
agreement on how to fund a
major corrections program
without adversely impacting
both the state and county budg-
ets.
"It's not good news; it's bad
news," Maxcy said.
The Florida Association of
Counties had held off on a law-


suit that blocked the Florida
Legislature from implementing
the law that would shift costs to
the counties, in exchange for
the dialogue. Maxcy said that
the proposed short meeting usu-
ally means that the speaker will
tell the county representatives
what's going on. In the past,
he's had legislators show up
late and had to talk while staff
members and aides are busy
trying to pull the legislator
away to another meeting.
"We're going to charge the
mound," Maxcy said. "This
cold shoulder is equivalent to a
hit by (the) pitcher."
The Florida Legislature
agreed in December to pay $65
million from the general fund to
cover Department of Juvenile
Justice costs until June. Maxcy
understood at that time that leg-
islators would sit down with
representatives of Florida coun-
ties and devise a funding sys-
tem that will work for both


sides, especially for small coun-
ties.
Article VII "Finance and
Taxation," Section 18 (a) of the
Florida Constitution Section 18
(a), states that counties and
cities don't have to abide by
any law requiring them to spend
funds on state programs unless
the legislature has found that
such a law fulfills an important
state interest, has appropriated
funds the money or provided a
new funding source to provide
for it, or has passed the bill by
two-thirds of each house in the
Legislature.
Counties contend that none
of these things have happened
in regard to the DJJ cost shift.
When legislators visited the
county on Dec. 9, they said
counties statewide would see a
$228 million surplus, which
would cover the $91.5 million
statewide costs. Highlands
County, it's estimated, would
save $830,245 this way.

Cutting Edge loses equipment rig


Students of month


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING When Richard
Klocko arrived at his work lot
area Tuesday morning the rig
was gone.
Missing was a dark green
Ford F-250 pickup and its
attached 20-foot enclosed trail-
er, chock full of lawn cutting
and maintenance equipment.
Klocko and his wife, Kerri,
own the Cutting Edge lawn
service. They have been in busi-

housing, or else the new resi-
dents will oppose them. John
Payne, with the IDA/EDC, said
having a master plan, with
drainage and infrastructure
already permitted will save
time.
Industry parks
A prospective site could be
heavy or light industry or a
businesses campus. All have
different needs. England said a
business campus needs more
aesthetic, while heavy industry
needs good access to main
transportation arteries. She
wants to work closely with
municipalities to develop what
those local governments want,
she said.
Regional
Mechlin said that the state is
insisting that local economic
development planning efforts
fit into the regional plans. The
IDA/EDC is already a part of
the Florida's Heartland Rural
Economic Development
Initiative, but it will have to get
more involved to make eco-
nomic plans more regional.


ness for a dozen years building
accounts, both commercial and
residential.
"I guess our biggest account
would be Lakeshore Mall," said
Kerri Klocko.
In all, it was more than a
$50,000 investment collected
over the years. Among the
equipment stored inside the
trailer was a pair of 60-inch
Grasshopper zero turn lawn
mowers plus an assortment of
hand-held equipment including


line trimmers, edgers, blowers
and weed eaters.
Klocko said the company,
which employs as many as six
workers during the growing
season, has never experienced
quite such a big loss.
"We've been in business 12
years and this is the first time
anything like this has happened
to us," she said.
Many people have seen their
handiwork and just not known
it.


IDA/EDC sets goals

The Highlands County Industrial Development Authority
and Economic Development Commission presented this
year's goals to the county commission on Tuesday.
Goals last year
Increase EDC by 40 members.
Develop a more active membership, by getting members
more involved in countywide economic development.
Increase IDA/EDC involvement with other community
organizations.
Get two new privately owned industrial parks in the coun-
ty by Sept. 30, 2004.
Increase successful startup businesses.
Retain existing businesses.
Create 100 new jobs by Sept 30, 2004.
Goals this year
1 Create 125 new jobs by Sept. 30, 2005.
Increase prospective development, i.e. getting more
buildings and sites ready for industry.
Create a business incubator for Highlands County.
Increase privately owned and operated industrial parks.
Increase participation in regional economic development
organizations.
Increase EDC membership by 20 percent by Sept. 30,
2005.
Create an awareness campaign to get businesses aware of
the services available through the IDA/EDC.
Document EDC activities for the county, public and busi-
nesses to know what is being done.


Arcade is tough issue around state


News-Sun
In past years, communities
all over the state have been
struggling with the same issues
as the Lake Placid Town
Council do arcades constitute
gambling pr not?
Only last November, the city
of Lake Wales gave the Queen
Bee Arcade an occupational
license to do business with 80
machines. Within 24 hours of
opening and after paying the
city nearly $1,700 for the occu-
pational license, the arcade was
shut down by the Polk County
Sheriff's Office.


ARCADE
Continued from 1A
the evening would be a disrup-
tion. Code Enforcement Officer
Lanny Tolly said the proposed
business would be in a commer-
cial district, not a residential
one.
Other council members, such


The Lake Wales city attorney
said that amusement games had
been approved by the Florida
Legislature hence making the
arcade a legal business. An
attorney for the state attorney's
office said the machines were
illegal because pushing a button
was not a skill.
In any case, the arcade
remained closed because its
owners said they couldn't
afford the legal battle.
And in November 2003, the
Volusia County Sheriff's Office
closed seven adult arcades.
Investigators believed comput-


as Jim Waller and Bill Brantley,
were concerned that the parking
was insufficient to support such
a business.
"I think it is not the best loca-
tion," Brantley said. "Parking is
the issue."
Venditto said any successful
business at the same location
would have an impact on park-
ing. -He expected most of his'


er chips had been installed in
the machines, allowing users to
win a set number of times and
making them "games of
chance."

The same month, investiga-
tors in Jacksonville raided two
similar arcades and seized 25
slot machines. However, they
made no arrests, and the
arcades were allowed to remain
open.

Some information comes from
The Ledger and the
Associated Press.


patronage to come in the
evening, when other businesses
were closed.
Ultimately, though, the coun-
cil was concerned about repeal-
ing the code until it had a clear
idea of the future it wanted to
see for arcade establishments in
town. It voted unanimously to
table the issue.


"There was a credit card
inside and when Richard went
to cancel it, he found it had
been used in Fort Pierce."
Klocko said the storage lot is
a gated area with a lock, but
because the incident still is
under investigation, further
details of the incident were not
being released.
The one good part of the
story is the fact that the theft
occurred during a slow time of
year.
"We'll be able to handle our
accounts until we can get anoth-
er truck and some more equip-
ment," she said.
Anyone with information on
the theft is asked to call the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office.

ical education, .5 credit in per-
sonal fitness and a .5 credit in
life management.
Less clear is a second man-
date from the state tied to its
request for a physical fitness
program. This has to do with
air quality in the schools.
Part of the confusion has to
do with a current lack of stan-
dards, as none have been pro-
posed by the state. The district
is relying on guidance from
experts in the field, and will
create its own standards.


BEACH

The monument will bear the
likeness of George Washington,
who championed the award. In
fact, the first president's profile
is in special coloring to reprise
the actual medal that bears his
likeness.
On the face of the monument
it reads; "My stone is red for the
blood they shed, the medal I
bear is my country's way to
show they care. IfI could be
seen by all of mankind, maybe
peace will come in my life-
time."
Snidow said at this time it
appears the Highlands County
marker will be the third to be
placed in the Sunshine State.
Invited to attend the Saturday
morning ceremony are mem-
bers of the Sebring City
Council, the Highlands County
Board of County Commission
plus various local military dig-
nitaries.
"The city has been highly
cooperative with us. They have
provided the ground, the foun-
dation and will put the monu-
ment in place," Snidow said.


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Jaclyn Cubrero (left), an eighth-grader at Hill-Gustat Middle
School in Sebring, and Alyssa Stenshorn, an eighth-grader at
Sebring Middle School, were January's Students of the Month
honored at the Sebring Chamber of Commerce Breakfast
Tuesday morning. Amanda Hall, a senior at Sebring High
School, also was recognized.


Council approves return of country fair


News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The Lake
Placid Arts and Crafts Country
Fair will return this year on
Friday and Saturday, Feb. 4-5.
The Lake Placid Town
Council gave its blessing to the
39th annual country fair at its
regular meeting Monday night.
Vann Peeples, the representa-
tive of the country fair commit-
tee, presented this year's plans
to the council as well as the typ-
ical documentation that is


The idea to put a monument
to recipients of the Purple Heart
has been in the works since
June of last year when
Ferdinand Arbelo, the senior
vice commander of Highlands
Chapter 601 of the Military
Order of the Purple Heart, was
at a meeting inr Orlando. There
he learned of a statewide
memorial, which was to be
placed Aug. 11.
"He came back and told us
about-it and a bunch of us got
together and decided this is the
thing to do," Snidow said.
But first they had to raise
$6,000.
"We insisted that we have the
money before we ordered the
monument and that's what we
did," Snidow said.
Members chipped in what


required, such as an insurance
binder.
Peeples said this year's event
would be similar to those in the
past. The country fair would
have about 15 portable toilets
situated through DeVane Park
and will pay for security
between the hours of 6 a.m. to 6
p.m.
As in the past, Lake Placid
Elementary School will open its
doors for exhibits and arts and
crafts demonstrations.


they could then went to differ-
ent businesses in town and gar-
nered the necessary funds to
make the purchase.
As part of the ceremonies,
Arbelo will give a history of the
medal known as the Purple
Heart.
The local chapter of the
Military Order of the Purple
Heart was formed here in 1991.
"There were six of us that
were charter members," he said.
Although the ranks have
swelled to about 30 members,
Snidow said the growth has
been slow, a fact he attributed to
the number of different veterans
organizations in the county.
"A lot of guys don't want to
belong to three or four organi-
zations even though they might
qualify for them," he said.

labor of


love
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID George
Burt and Jim Comerford have
been friends since the first
grade. Having worked separate-
ly over the years with some of
the biggest dealerships in the
Naples area, they have now
joined forces and are working
for themselves, applying big
distributor service to a smaller
scale, used car operation.
The result, they claim, is a
well rounded stock of one and
two year old cars with low
mileage, in better than average
condition, mechanic inspected
and certified, selling at roughly
half the new car price.
While some vehicles sell for
as much as $20,000., the vast
majority of the vehicles fall into
the $6,000 to $13,000 range.
The owners, and their gener-
al manager, Gary Daniels, are
also proud of their follow
through care.
"(Follow through) is one of


Heartland Amputee Group meets


SEBRING The next meet-
ing for the Heartland Amputee
Group is scheduled for
Thursday, Jan, 20 at the office

Guest speaker will be
announced. A brown bag lunch
is welcome. Beverage is pro-
vided.
The group meets every third
Thursday of the month and is
open to all levels of amputees,
both recent and experienced,
their family members and
friends. The group's main pur-


pose is to give support, encour-
agement and exchange infor-
mation and product knowledge.
The Heartland Amputee Group
is organized through
Handicapped Americans Love
of Life Organization bringing
to people opportunities to reach
personal goals and objectives.

the big advantages in dealing
with a dealer," Daniels said.
"With a private owner, once the
money changes hands, the deal
is over, over and done. But
small business thrives on word
of mouth, on referrals, and
we're here to build relation-
ships, not just sell cars. We'll'
direct you, and help you get
things done. We need to keep it
simple and honest, because we
want to be around a long time.
"If you hate (what you buy)
or have a bad time, you'll tell
everyone you know. If you get a
car you love and have a great
time, you might tell a few of
your best friends. We want to


build our reputation with those
few."
Lake Country typically has
40 to 45 units on site. The own-
ers are delighted to search for
particular makes or models.
While most deals are cash,
Lake Country can arrange for
bank financing.
"You can buy a one or two
year old vehicle, with 12 to 15
thousand miles on the odome-
ter, and save thousands of dol-
lars," Daniels said. "Some cars
still have a factory warranty. It's
a good value, that's why the
used car market is so strong.
"But it's a buyer's market out
there, the area is so saturated


Experience makes material difference


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
- News-Sun
SEBRING Mike Jarrett, who owns and
operates UltrasteamCarpet Cleaning, has been
cleaning carpets and upholstery for close to three
decades, and has been self-employed for almost
20 years.
Never one to sit behind a desk, he prefers to be
out in the field working. He thinks that's the way
it will always be, whether he runs a single truck
outfit, or a large fleet.
Jarrett has only just arrived in Highlands
County from Ohio.
He had been vacationing here since 1990, vis-
iting his folks who had retired in the area.
Like with so many other people, Jarrett picked
up stakes and relocated to Florida permanently
after one bitter winter too many, opting for the
warmer climate, and the slower pace of
Highlands County.
Jarrett arrived knowing exactly what he was
going to do.
"You can only be an expert in so many things,"
he said recently. "I stick with what I know."
What Jarrett knows is how to clean carpeting
and upholstery.
He can clean some hard surfaces too, like tile
and grout, stone or linoleum, but fabric is his spe-
cialty.
"I wish I could say there was a big difference
(between the machines used by the different com-
panies), but there isn't," Jarrett said. "My equip-
ment is brand, brand new, but it's not a lot differ-
ent from anyone else's equipment.
"Experience on the job is the big thing, and
I've got the experience, and I'm on every job."
It takes Jarrett around an hour to clean an aver-
age five'area home (a living room/dinning room,


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Mike Jarrett, owner and operator of Ultrasteam
Carpet Cleaning, is new to Sebring. Originally
from Ohio, he said, 'I've been doing this 28 years,
never from behind a desk, always out in the field
working and I always will, whether I end up with
a fleet of vehicles, or just this one truck.'
two bedrooms and a hallway). "We hardly inter-
rupt your day," he said, and later stated his prices
are very competitive.
Ultrasteam brings its own water and power
source, so there is no need for electricity or water
at a work site. Jarrett uses a call forwarding sys-
tem so each call is answered. He takes pride in
speaking to people in person. The telephone
number is 471-3300. He works 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to noon
Saturday.


with cars. We know that it's
about people, not about cars.
It's about faith and trust.
"We're in this business
because we want to be, not
because we have to be,"
Daniels grinned. "We've got a
laid back ma and pa type atmos-
phere, really no pressure, at the
same time we run it like the best
of the franchised dealers
would."
Lake Country Auto Sales is
at 1140 U.S. 27 N. It is open
from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday
through Friday and from 9 a.m.

Dance team does well at competition


The saying says,
"It's not the glitz of
the uniform that mat-
ters, but the spirit that
shines within." On
Sunday, the Sebring
High School varsity
dance team had an
extra dose of spirit.
The dance team
competed in its first
competition of the
season on Jan. 9 at
Oviedo High School.
They were in the
School Dance-
Varsity Pom division
of the
Championships


Competition.
All the hard hours of piactic-
ing beforehand, waking up

"G,-.,bho, n c frishoijc .". '. a-i.
very popular a.ying here at
Sebring High School.
The poor little freshmen are
always getting picked on by
somebody. I guess that's just
how the cookie crumbles when
you're the "little ones" at
school.
Being a junior, I absolutely
love high school. I am very sad
to say I'll be leaving soon.
However, I can also say it has-
n't always been that way, espe-
cially when I was a freshman.
I hated school with a passion
when I was a freshman! I felt so
pathetic around everyone. I felt
so young and dreadfully intimi-
dated.
I think all the upperclassmen,
and yes, including myself, for-
get how they felt when they
went from being the "Big
Dawgs" of school (in eighth
grade) to being pushed, and
shoved through the hallways by
the most intimidating people
ever, and not to mention the
:coolest."
But really, in reality, they

ting the costumes all
set sure paid off after
the performance. The
routine was superb
and eveiy thing ran
pretty smoothly.
The competition
w as mire like a prac-
tice for the state
championships in
Jacksonville this
weekend where the
dance team will coui-
pete once again. This
competition is much
nore intense and
they compete over


American Ihe course of two days.
Regional Senior Lindsey Lucas has


cien oni te team for four years.
She said, "The hours we put in
to practice are demanding, but
when we get the chance to per-


form in front of an audience it
all pays off because we look
good and the crowd enjoys it."
At Oviedo, Sebring got a first
place win complete with medals
for each member and a champi-
onship banner.
The team was proud of its
win and is looking forward to
the "big one" in Jacksonville
where members hope to bring
home yet another first place tro-
phy.
Coach Jennifer Reed said, "I
am so proud of how hard the
girls have worked and how
committed they have been."
Some people may not consid-
er dance to be a sport, but how
would you like to wake up for
6:30 a.m. practices and have to
do an intense competition rou-
une?


There is a lot of time and
hard work involved,
A dancer has to be flexible,
be full of energy, and have
rhythm. Dancers work just as
hard, if not harder, than the
other sports teams at Sebring
High School.
The dance team is coached
by Jennifer Reed and made up
of seniors Gina Gallimore,
Lindsey Lucas, Lauren
Magnus, and -Jennifer
Yarbrough; juniors Shannon
Gillilan and Theodosia
Shannon; and sophomores
Kaila Bateman, Ashley
Richardson, Sara Schmidt, and
Lisa Taylor.
They perform at all of the
home boy's varsity basketball
games.

Sebring High School
Exams are one thing that
high schoolers absolutely
dread.
So much pressure is put upon
us to do well in order to keep up
our grades so we can stay
enrolled in clubs, keep up our
GPA, and most importantly of
all, get into colleges of our


choice.
Exams are 20
percent of our
grade and that
makes it more
stressful knowing
that it is worth so
much.
It is also diffi-
cult to recall infor-
mation we
obtained all the


Al
{r 1


LSr


way back in August, even
before all of the hurricanes! A
lot of students pull all-nighters
the week of exams and study
constantly.
For most of the clubs at
Sebring High School, the low-
est possible GPA is a 2.0 to be
able to stay in the club. For aca-
demic clubs such as National
Honor Society and Mu Alpha
Theta, Sebring High School
students cannot drop their GPA
to be lower than 3.5.
Clubs are very appealing to
colleges when they receive our
transcripts. Besides our grades
it is the second most important
component.
Keeping up our GPA is very
intense work. Most high
schoolers who take full loads
are encouraged to do well and


keep their GPA in the "A" or
"B" range. Too many "B's" can
pull a GPA down quickly. If a
student is teetering on the edge
of an "A" or a "B," doing poor-
ly on an exam can blow it for
them and drop their GPA many
points.
Many high schoolers choose
to further their education and
go to college after they gradu-
ate high school. Of
course, our grades
can make or break
S us from getting
into our first
choice college.
My first choice
College is the
SUniversity of
Florida. It is not
,- too easy, nor too
difficult, to get into
the University of Florida. By
trying extremely hard, it is pos-
sible to get accepted.
Surely all colleges, including
the University of Florida, want
their students to be overachiev-
ers, to stand out, and go above
and beyond what everyone else
does. So if I want to be accept-
ed, I must overachieve and
accomplish more than all of the
other students. If all of the
applications appear the same, it
becomes. dull looking at them
all.
Exams put an extreme
amount of pressure on high
school students, because in
order to stay in clubs, maintain
a high GPA, and be accepted
into college, we must make
"good grades" and most of all
do excellent on our exams.

aren't. I have definitely realized
that, now being an upperclass-
man and all.
Being mean and cool really
isn't the way the upperclassmen
really are.
I guess you could say being
like that is kind of an obliga-
tion. Well, more like a tradition.
But when it comes down to
it, I guarantee you that every
upperclassman now felt the
same way almost every fresh-


man feels this year: Like a
loser.
On the other hand, despite all
the "upperclassman drama," I
have noticed this year, not all
the freshmen feel the same way
I did.
*Freshman Somer Smith said,
"1 absolutely love high school!
It's way better than middle
school."
There are many obvious dif-
lerences between high school


Submit items for Teen Matters

Teen Matters is written by teens, for teens. Although many of the student
writers will come from our high school journalism classes, the page is not
limited to just them. It is open to all teens, middle and high school age from
public, private and home school, who want to put in writing and have pub-
lished their ideas of subjects that interest them.
Not only will this page give our students an outlet to express themselves,
but it will also gives parents an opportunity to learn more about what is
important to their children. The content of the page may not always be based
on school events, but the content will reflect how our young and future lead-
ers are thinking.
To submit an item for publication on Teen Matters, send it to Romona

and middle school, it's just that
different people have different
views of what they are.
Sophomore Katlyn Hammor-
tree said, "High school is very
different than middle school,
seeing how you have more free-
dom and better opportunities at
the high school."
I agree with what she said
because you should get more
freedom at the high school. It is
one step closer to the "real
world." Teachers start preparing
you for college and start treat-
ing you like an adult.
Another sophomore Dawn
Alexander said, "High school is
completely different from mid-
dle school in the sense that you
are way more involved in
school-related activities than
.you would be at the middle
school."
I also agree with that,
because there is definitely more
to be involved with in high
school, so you find yourself
doing tons of things not offered
at the middle school.
Overall, I really do think stu-
dents enjoy high school more. I
mean you are older here, and
people treat you that way.


By NOELLE JOHNSON
Sebring High School
What is a new year's resolu-
tion?
It is defined as something
you want to change in Ihe new
year. miice the new year of
2005 just started there are many
people who want to change in
some way or another.
A most common resolution is
to become a better person, but
there are a few resolutions that
are a little different.
"I'm trying to lose weight, so
I am going to the gym three
days a week," said Jenna
Pontius, a junior at Sebring
High School.
Many teenage girls or even
guys have similar resolutions.
Some more than others.
SOn the flip side there are
girls who are trying to gain


weight because they feel too
skinny.
"My New Year's resolution
is to keep my room clean for
more than a week," said
Jennifer Wilson. an eighth-
grader at Sebring- Middle
School.
Not only is that a good reso-
lution, it will keep your parents
from nagging at you to. clean
your room all the time.
Many resolutions are just a
goal that people want to fulfill
within the year.
Some succeed, but others
only fail trying. Once the goal
disappears they can begin to do
the same things that they did
the years before. Stick to the
resolutions you make, because
if you quit, most likely you
won't be able to succeed in life.


What's hot on area lakes?


Today I am going
to let people in on a
few secrets a cou-
ple of hot spots and a
few cold spots.
I go fishing quite
often, at least three or
four times a week,
and I have had some
success as of late, but
it did not come with-
out searching around
a bit.
I only fish locally,
Sebring, but this
information should


THE FI
REP

JOHN.


be useful throughout the area.
What's hot
Speck, also known as
Crappie, are being caught cool-
ers full at a time.
With my experience in Lake
Jackson and Lake Huckleberry
you can't go wrong with a
bright jig tipped with a minnow
at 11-13 feet. Most catches
have been on the bottom but
keep one submerged at six to
eight feet as there have been a
few nice schools swimming at


that depth.
Largemouth bass
are also in the water
just waiting to be
caught.
Numbers wise this
time of year is not as
good as spring but
the big ones are on
the prowl. The trick
SHING to bagging "the big
one" is live bait,
ORT preferably wild shin-
ers and a weedless
PECK hook mixed with a
big group of lily pads
and you have the recipe for suc-
cess.

What's not
Brim and shellcrackers are
not around much this time of
year. Though you always seem
to catch a little one off your
dock with a piece of bread,
finding their moms and dads
out in the lake is a difficult task.
The same goes for the crack-
ers but the panfish fish fries
with your friends is not far off.


Now is the time to


plan for their future.

HEALTH & NUTRITION



Despite misleading study, vitamin E is good for heart
.o e g n cm o u. n_ v .e. ..r.-. ..i. A."th 'R 00* AO LMTT T U Paua


Dear Pharmacist:
I take a vitamin E supple-
ment (400 IU) every day. I just
read an article saying that this
dosage is harmful. If this is true,
I'll stop taking the supplement.
F.B., Sunrise, Fla.
Dear F.B.:
No, vitamin E does not harm
the body. It's needed to sustain
life and advance health. Many
well-designed trials have
proven that vitamin E reduces a
person's risk for heart disease,
cancer, Parkinson's,
Alzheimer's and even the com-
mon cold.
The recent Johns Hopkins
article was not even a clinical
trial. And headlines such as
"Research Shows Those Taking
E Supplements Died Earlier"


only send shockwaves of terror
into the fragile hearts of our
elderly.
Simply put, a group of
researchers sat down and ana-
lyzed the results from 19 prior
studies on E and drew their own
conclusions. Incidentally, fund-
ing in part came from Roche, a
pharmaceutical giant that hap-
pens to sell some excellent car-
diac drugs, as well as vitamins.
The study concludes that
doses over 400 IU of vitamin E
can cause a person to die earlier
than those not taking E. This is
very misleading.
Remarkably, conclusions
were drawn from a select group
of studies where participants
were extremely ill, dealing with
several medical conditions,


including serious
heart disease. One
would assume the
lifespan for these
people to be shorter.
Really sick people
just tend to die
younger. To blame
vitamin E for the
shortened lifespan
is plainly irrespon-
sible, especially in
the face of decades
of research proving
life extension, safe-
ty and effective-
ness.


DEARPHAI

Suzy C


Vitamin E refers to a family
of eight. different substances
called tocopherols and
tocotrienols, each having their
own subfamilies called alpha,


beta, delta and
gamma. Each of
these types of E has
a powerful but dif-
ferent -effect on the
body. Because
alpha tocopherol is
thought to have the
most biological
activity, it is most
RMACIST often used in clini-
cal trials. Herein
hn lies an inherent
flaw.
How can scien-
tists definitively
determine whether vitamin E
really affects the body when
studies typically use only the
alpha portion of the molecule?
Remember, E refers to a family


or eight compound. Things over-
sight is massive. Furthermore,
some researchers feel the
gamma portion may be even
more heart-protective than
alpha. This too was overlooked.
And genetics have an impact on
how well a person uses and
stores vitamin E. None of this
was analyzed.
Delving even deeper, we
know that natural forms of vita-
min E are better utilized than
synthetic forms. Of course, you
shouldn't overdo any nutrient,
because it throws the whole
system out of kilter, but it's safe
to continue taking vitamin E. I
think a mixed blend is best in
order to get the full spectrum of
benefits. Most experts still


agree that 4uu to 00ouu per uay
is safe.

Reader's comment:
Please tell your readers that
the entire problem of stress uri-
nary incontinence may be
solved by eliminating foods that
contain artificial sweeteners
from one's diet. I had this prob-
lem for years and, to my amaze-
ment, six weeks after doing
this, I was cured.

tion/. Completed applications
can only be accepted during the
January 30-day open enroll-
ment period and under new

Governor Jeb Bush and the leg-
islature, families need only sup-
ply one document verifying
their income. Uninsured chil-
dren 18 years of age and under
who do not qualify for
Medicaid are eligible for the
program.
The new guidelines approved
by the legislature during the
special session came at a great
time for working families who
can't afford private health
insurance for their children,"
said Rose Naff, executive direc-
tor of Florida Healthy Kids.
"These families will be able to
start the New Year off right and


we are going to do everything
we can to help them enroll, but
they can't wait until the last
minute. The time to act is now."
The KidCare open enroll-
ment period is a joint effort
between Florida Healthy Kids,
the Department of Health, the
Department of Children and
Families and the Agency for
Healthcare Administration.
During the 30-day open
enrollment period, parents must
complete a one-page applica-
tion form, attach a copy of their
most recent federal income tax
return and send it to Healthy
Kids before Jan. 30. If the par-
ent is unable to provide their tax
return, they may send wages


and earnings statements or pay
stubs. Applications received'
after Jan. 30 cannot be
processed.
Healthy Kids coverage will
begin when eligibility has been
determined and the full premi-
um amount has been received.
The amount of each premium is
based on household size and
monthly income. Most families
pay either $15 or $20 per fami-
ly per month; however, some
families may pay more.
In addition, applications for
open enrollment will be avail-

have a weakened immune sys-
tem, there are many illnesses
that affect them including fever,
severe diarrhea, pneumonia,
tuberculosis, skin infection,
skin cancer, and peripheral neu-
ropathy. Peripheral neuropathy
is a disease which affects the
nerves located outside the cen-
tral nervous system such as the
extremities of the hands and
feet. About 30 percent of AIDS
patients develop peripheral
neuropathy. Three types of neu-
ropathy are motor neuropathy,
autonomic neuropathy and sen-
sory neuropathy. Most neuropa-
thy problems can lead to foot
deformities such as hammer-
toes, bunions and Charcot feet


(severely -collapsed
feet). Autonomic
neuropathy leads to
brittle nails, cracked
dry skin. Sensory
neuropathy leads to
insensitivity, numb-
ness in the feet,
paresthesias (shoot-
ing pain in the feet).
With sensory neu-
ropathy, an untreated
minor scrape, pres-
sure sore or ingrown
toe nail may lead to


ulceration, infection and poten-
tially amputation. Preventative
care is essential with this condi-
tion. Protect your feet by wear-
ing comfortable extra depth
shoes with a wide, high toe box
and flexible soles. When possi-
ble obtain Plastizote foam
inserts which will mold to your
feet minimizing pressure
points.

NOTICE OF
Mortgage Credit Certificate Program
The Florida Housing Finance Corporation
(FHFC) announces it Mortgage Credit Certifi-
cate Program. Section 25 of the Internal Rev-
enue Code authorizes "Issuers" to issue Mort-
gage Credit Certificates (MCC) in lieu of quali-
fied mortgage bonds. An MCC entitles eligible
individuals to a tax credit against the individu-
al's Federal tax liability. The tax credit amount
is determined by multiplying the certificate's
tax credit rate by the taxpayer's interest paid
on the mortgage loan during that year. In or-
der for an individual to claim the credit provid-
ed by Section 25(a), the MCC must be a
"qualified mortgage credit certificate" issued
pursuant a "qualified mortgage credit certifi-
cate program". The following criteria/require-
ments must be met:
Principal Residence Requirement
The homebuyer must occupy the residence
as their Principal Residence within sixty (60)
days after the MCC is issued. The homeowner
will notify the Issuer immediately if the resi-
dence ceases to be their Principal Residence.
The MCC is only valid during the time the
homeowner occupies the property.
New Mortgage Requirement
An MCC cannot be issued in conjunction
with the acquisition, replacement refinancing
of an existing mortgage. However, a certifi-
cate can be used in conjunction with the re-
placement of construction period loans,
bridge loans, or other temporary initial financ-
ing with a term of twenty-four (24) months or
less.
Three-Year No Prior
Homeownership Requirement
The homebuyer cannot have had any pres-
ent ownership interest in a Principal Resi-
dence at any time during the preceding three
(3) years ending on the date the MCC is is-
sued. This three-year, first time homebuyer
requirement does not have to be met if the
residence for which a mortgage loan applica-
tion is being made is located in a designated
Targeted Area. A listing of Targeted Areas
may be obtained by visiting www.floridahous-
ingaore.
Purchase Price Requirement
There are maximum allowable purchase
prices which vary based upon location and
whether the home is in a Targeted Area. The
maximum purchase prices are as follows:
COUNTY LIMIT
Baker 5189,682
Broward S280,463

homebuyer to claim the tax credit when feder-
al taxes are filed.

W use our hands every minute of the day for the most delicate of tasks, to
acuvities that require all the power we can muster. What if you couldn't button
your buttons or zip your zipper because your fingers didn't mowe tenr well?
Fastening jewelry requires good sensation and very fine movements. Lifting a
heavy couch out of the way so you can vacuum the carpet requires maximum
linger, wrist and arm strength Grocery shopping, cooking, dishes, balancing
your checkbook, turning the key in the igninon, driving a car, putting on make-
up, shaving, s.yling your hair, caring for children or spouses...from delicate to
heavy acuity our hands are the work horses of our body. Even if you are unable
to walk you can still take care of .ourself if .ou have sour hands.

There are many problems that can arise oer the years of wear and tear not
to mention accidents that can happen in a split second. Some of the more
common occurrences that happen over time include pinched nerves in the wrist
or elbow creating numbness or tingling in your lingers. Fricuon can occur along
a tendon over the back of sour thumb creating thumb pain with movement or in
your finger causing it to lock and snap when it opens. Painful wrists can be
caused b\ overusing the hands and losing some of the fledbilibt of the muscles.
Our thumb is particularly susceptible to wear and tear and can develop
degenerative arthritis at its base where it connects to the wrist. This can cause
pain when you pick up a book or other heavy. object.

All of these conditions are treatable. Many can be treated by a Certified
Hand Therapist under the referral of your doctor or b\ consulung a Certified
Hand Surgeon. 'ou should consider going to your doctor as soon as your
symptoms interfere with your ability to use ,our hand on a day to day basis.
hlien symptoms don't go away after you stop the aggravating activity, it is lime to
at least figure out what the cause of the problem is.

lour family doctor may treat you for simple hand problems For complex
problems he can refer you to a specialist. If \ou hate arthritis
pain and stiffness or ,ou don't have full function after an injunr
hand therapy. may help you return to your regular activities. Most
hand pain is treatable! For More Information Call 4"1'-63 03.

We're not sleeping

Perhaps these teens from other counties will think
twice before coming to Highlands County to try to do
their criminal act.
Highlands County law enforcement and our local res-
idents proved Friday that we are not some sleepy little
rural county that doesn't pay attention to things going on
around us.
Shortly after 1 p.m., four teens from Palm Beach
decided to rob the SouthTrust Bank on Main Street in
Avon Park the three that entered the bank were
masked and armed. And while they did escape with an
undisclosed amount of money, their freedom was short
lived.
Quick thinking bank employees got word to police of
the hold up, and fortunately Avon Park Police Sgt. Greg
Warner was nearby. He figures he missed the thieves by
just 10 seconds.
Another key to solving this crime was an observant
resident who saw masked men with guns get out of one
car at the Lemon Tree Apartments on West Bell Street in
Avon Park and switch vehicles. That resident was able to
tell police what color of car the bank robbers were then
traveling in and in what direction.
Sebring police were notified of the southbound rob-
bers. Officer Michael Hirsch and Cpl. Gregory Barlaug
joined Highlands County Sheriff's Deputy Andy Spires
in the chase from Sebring to Lake Placid.
Although the chase did not become dangerous, the
robbers' car and the law enforcement vehicles did pass a
number of other motorists on the busy highway. When
the officers figured the driver was not going to willfully
stop, they had deputies throw stop sticks onto the high-
way in an effort to slow the vehicles. Although the stop
sticks flattened all four tires near the railway overpass
north of Lake Placid, the car continued through town
until it reached the Highway Park entrance just south of
town.
Once the car came to a stop, three of the teens attempt-
ed to flee the area, but again thanks to alert law enforce-
ment officers, they were captured almost immediately.
The fourth teen didn't give up so easily. He gained
access to a house while the resident was outside in her
yard. While a sheriff's office victim's advocate tended to
the resident, officers tried to persuade the teen who was
holed up. ..,, ,
With little luck in negotiations, officers finally resort-
.ed to using tear gas to get the teen out of the office. He
was taken into custody.
Highland County residents should be proud of the
Highlands County law enforcement officers, bank work-
ers and residents who did a part, however small, in catch-
ing these guys.
Whether they thought we were an easy target because
we have a new sheriff in town or we are such a small
county, perhaps their arrest will serve as an example to
others that this county means business when it comes to
upholding the law.

Fly our flag

with your flag
Editor:
In reference to flying the
Canadian flag in America, so
what, they are proud to be
Canadian, as well as we are
proud to be American.
I would like to remind every-
one that Canada is one of our
closest friends and allies.
When I worked in a factory
up north, we had visitors and
dignitaries from many other
nations visiting our factory all
of the time, to learn how we ran
manufacturing and mass pro-
duction.
We always flew their flag
outside our factory, to show our
respect towards them.
We had Japanese flags,
Korean flags, Taiwanese flags,
Canadian flags, as well as
many other flags flying period-
ically.
If I may make a suggestion
to our Canadian visitors and
friends, when you fly your
Canadian flags, why not fly the
American flag along side your
flags? Perhaps Americans
wouldn't feel so offended.
What do you think?

MURPHY'S LAW

Lindsey N. Murphy


Present day

Einstein

I am going to share a little
something with you. Hopefully it
will stay just between the two of
us.
Well, you see, I really enjoy
the latest and greatest that the
technology industry has to offer
its consumers. I am sure you
know what I am talking about,
those modern day robots that
make what seem like a daunting
task, look down right easy.
But, between you and me, my
friend, looks can be deceiving.
For a birthday/Christmas/
Easter/all of the above present I
received a laptop computer from
my parents. I was excited; it had
everything that I could ever
dream of on it. Plus, in my
defense, it is well needed as I
prepare to leave home for an
adventure at college come
August.
Even though I knew that I was
getting this, Christmas Day I
was thrilled. Just like a little kid
playing with their new toys, I
spent hours trying to install all of
the programs onto this new
device (notice I said hours).
After that time, I became
quite agitated. For some reason,
that was completely beyond me,
I could not get my computer to
work properly. And by this I
mean, the keys were not typing,
the graphics were not loading,
and the printer refused to print.
By nature, I like to be inde-
pendent and this has certainly
gotten me in trouble at times.
Last night was certainly one of
those times. After two weeks of
fighting and fussing over the lap-
top, I finally humbled myself
enough to ask my dad for a little
help.
In the matter of five minutes
he was back out in the living
room, where I was sulking, with
a grin on his face. The conversa-
tion went as followed:
Dad: "Now, there were two
things that was the matter with
your computer."
My thought: "Wow. I am
smarter than I thought. Only
two things. Git 'er done,
Lindsey!"
Dad: "First, you must remove
the CD from the drive."
Me: "Well, that is a common
mistake."
Dad: "And the second one,
you must have the right brand to
install it. Einstein, you had the
Macintosh disk in, instead of the
Microsoft."
Everyone in the room: "laugh-
ter."
Even if you cannot compre-
hend the computer talk, as seen
above, just know that I complete-
ly did not follow the instructions.
Could it be a Murphy's Law, or
just plain out not paying atten-
tion?
Let me tell you, though. That
was the best way to put me back
into my place. Although it was
surely funny, it was more than
likely needed.
Now folks, the moral of this
story lies here. Instead of think-
ing that you can do it all yourself,
like I did, it is a-OK to ask for a
little bit of help. This might save
your dignity one day.

Park resident, is a sophomore at

College. She can be contacted by e-

Bad apple did

not spoil all
Editor:
I am a great believer in not
letting one bad apple spoil the
bunch, so I will begin this letter
by saying thank you to the
many people who visited Arc's
Festival of Lights fund-raiser at
Florida Hospital Heartland
Medical Center in Sebring.
The Festival of Lights is one
of the county's largest holiday
displays and also acts as a
fund-raiser for the Ridge Area
Arc.
The Arc has provided servic-
es for people with developmen-
tal disabilities from Highlands,
Polk and Hardee counties for
nearly 50 years. This year's
event, which ran from Nov. 30
until Jan. 2, raised several thou-
sand dollars, which will help to
fund group homes, community
employment, adult day training
and more through Arc.
The lights were displayed on
the hospital's north lawn with
collection boxes at each
entrance. Money is retrieved
from the collection boxes regu-
larly and the Florida Hospital
security and sheriff's depart-
ment deputies monitor the area
frequently. The admission by
donation policy, however, it is
on the honor system.
Having said that, I do want
to note that so many residents
enjoyed the lights this year,
dropped a small donation into a
mailbox, and supported a very
worthwhile agency. For that we
are extremely grateful.
Unfortunately, I do have to
mention the bad apple part of
this letter. The last donation
pickup for the Festival of
Lights fund-raiser was just
after the New Year's weekend.
I was very disheartened to see
that somebody had broken the
lock on our biggest donation


box and cleaned us out.
The money in that donation
box was put there by caring cit-
izens of this county with the
intention that it would help
people served by Arc. I hope
that whoever stole that money
truly needed it more than the
people with autism, down syn-
drome, spina bifida and other
developmental disabilities that
Arc serves.

opment at Ridge Area Arc.

Post prepares

for auction

Editor:
On behalf of the American
Legion Post 69 in Avon Park, I
wish to announce that the Post

raiser auction in the Post audi-
torium, 1301 W. Bell St., on
Saturday, March 5. Doors will
open at noon with bidding to
begin at 1 p.m. sharp.
As he has done annually for
the last nine years, auctioneer
Tom Kelly will again travel at
his own expense from Calgary,
Alberta, and donate his talented
service to this worthy cause. It
should be noted that all other
work connected with the auc-
tion will likewise be voluntary,


meaning all proceeds go direct-
ly to Post 69.
Since its inception in 1996,
this event has evolved into a
prime source of revenue on
which the Post relies to provide
important services to area vet-
erans and their families.
Members of the public are cor-
dially invited to attend and any-
one wishing to donate a new or
good used item to be auctioned,
please contact the Post during
afternoon hours, or before
noon, phone Jack or Anne
Kelly at (863) 452-2477.
Area business managers,
please be advised that in the
coming days, an authorized
representative from the Post
will call on you to again seek
donations of merchandise
and/or gift certificates. Your
wonderful cooperation in past
years has played a very large
part in the success of previous
auctions. A list will be pub-
lished of all participating busi-
nesses.
For an afternoon of fun and
bargains and for the good of
Post 69, please join us on
March 5 and bring your friends.
Refreshments and lunch will be
available on the premises.

Smell like a Florida brush fire, $25


This week, fire-
fighters from all over
Florida will converge
on Highlands County
to take part in the
Great Florida Fire
School. Hundreds of
firefighters will con-
verge to practice their
skills at putting out
flames.
What better way to
honor them than to
smell like a Florida
brush fire?

At a local bath and body sup-
ply store, you can find a candle
called "firewood" that smells
- you guessed it like you
just came from a wildfire!
Save yourself the trouble of
chasing after fire engines into
the darkest parts of the burning
Florida scrub like I do. Just
pay $25 that's right, just $25
- and you too can smell like
you were there hauling hoses
with the best of them or chok-
ing on palmetto smoke waiting
for a quick word from the fire
chief.
Most folks who've suffered
house fires try to get rid of the
smoky smell. Here's a candle
that can put it back in. I first

I could do that for free by
climbing down the chimney
like Santa Claus.
Then she said she got it for
her husband. He liked it?
"Oh, yes!" she said. "He's a

I am not making this up.
When he comes home
sweaty, greasy and sooty from

One of Highlands
County's newest busi-
nesses is owned and
operated by a recent
transplant from Ohio.
Mike Jarrett owns
and operates
Ultrasteam Carpet
Cleaning. He has
been cleaning carpets
and upholstery for
close to three
decades, and has been
self-employed for
alnio',t 20 years.
Jarrett is never one
to sit behind a desk.
He pre fers to be out in
ihe held .o .:kihng. He Ultrasteam
think h tjha' the way cleaning.
it v ili always be,
whether he runs a s ingle truck out-
fit, or a large fleet
In fact, Jarrett also has a call-
forwarding system so each call to
his business is answered whether
he is in the shop of not.
He takes pride in speaking to
people in person.
Jarrett had been vacationing


what he was going to do.
"You can only be an expert in so
many things," he said recently. "I
stick with what I know."
What Jarrett knows is how to
clean carpeting and upholstery.
He can clean some hard surfaces
too, like tile and grout, stone or
linoleum, but fabric is his special-
ty.
"Experience on the job is the big
thing, and I've got the experience,
and I'm on every job."
It takes Jarrett around an hour to
clean an average five-area home
(a living room/dinning room, two
bedrooms and a hallway). "We
hardly interrupt your day," he
said, and later stated his prices are
very competitive.
Ultrasteam brings its own water
and power source, so there is no
need for electricity or water at a
work site.
The telephone number is 471-
3300. He works 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday, and 8
a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday.

10 Years Ago
Jan. 10, 1995: Sebring
wrestling avengedan earlier
loss to Class 5A No. 5
Auburndale and pulled off a
43-20 upset on the road.
Sophomore Winston
Maynard, a 220-pounder,
closed out victory over the
previously unbeaten
Bloodhounds with a pin of
former Sebring Invitational
No. 1 seed Randy Pritchard.
15 Years Ago.
Jan. 12, 1990: The last of.
Ted Portee's 47 points lifted
Lake Placid over Avon Park,
70-68. A pair of Portee free
throws with 35 seconds to
play put the Green Dragons
(11-4) on top 69-60, but a
furious comeback that
included a five-point play by
Tom Smith nearly salvaged
the Red Devils (3-5).
20 Years Ago
Jan. 11, 1985: A bench-
clearing brawl that was
briefly joined by a good
portion of the Avon Park
crowd did not keep the Red
Devils from beating Class
2A No. 6 Sebring 65-54. It
was the second straight
night Avon Park (9-5) had
beaten a 2A top 10 team in
its gym. Sebring stood 10-2
after the game, with both of
its losses coming at the
hands of the Devils.

Reyes, Diaz get

hat tricks for

Lady Streaks
By JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING Two Sebring forwards
scored hat tricks Tuesday night to lead the
Lady Blue Streaks to a 7-0 district win
over Lehigh Senior High School.
Junior forward Julie Reyes centered the
ball to sophomore forward Catalina Diaz
during the third minute of play for what
would prove to be the match-winning
goal. Both Reyes and Diaz scored three
goals apiece to help the Blue
Sebring Streaks improve to 11-2
7 overall and 6-1 in the dis-
7 trict.
Lehigh Reyes scored on a corner
O kick when the ball sailed
high and hard in front of the
Up Next net and caromed off a
Blue Streaks Lehigh Lightning player to
Lemon Bay put Sebring up 2-0 during
on Friday the 14th minute. Reyes and
head coach Steve Ashley
liked the solid play out of the Lady Streaks
throughout the lineup.
"It feels good, I mean, they passed real-
ly good tonight," Reyes said when asked
about her hat trick. "I think we played
really good."
Freshman Samantha Mitchell assisted
Diaz's second goal midway through the
first half to raise the lead to 3-0. Mitchell
dribbled the ball up to the left side of the
Lightning goal, got tackled to the ground
and got back up and centered the ball to
Diaz for the goal against keeper Ijeoma
Ekenta. "Tenacity" was how assistant
coach Paul Brown described Mitchell's

Eagles end


up on top
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK The Eagles
felt like they got away with one
Tuesday night. The Eagles also
felt like they let one get away.
To clear up the confusion,
the Eagles who left happy were
the ones from Walker
Memorial Academy of Avon
Park. The ones who didn't were
from Roosevelt Academy of
Lake Wales. Roosevelt whittled
an 11-point deficit down to just
one point with 2:58 left in the
game, but didn't score again
despite some sloppy ball-han-
dling by Walker, which escaped
with a 46-43 victory at Avon
Park Middle School.
"We definitely got away
with one because we certainly
made enough
Walker mistakes to cost
46 us the game,"
Walker coach
Roosevelt John Bedell said
3 after his team
43 improved to 3-7.
Up Next "Fortunately, we
Walker at did just enough
Santa Fe on 'things right to
Thursday come away with
a win and I think
our guys need that for a boost
of confidence and to keep
working hard."
Walker hit just 2-of-14 from
the floor in the fourth quarter
and made just 2-of-13 from the
free-throw line in the game,
which h is why it wassomewhat
surprising that winless
Roosevelt never even attempt-
ed to foul when Walker had the
ball and was in the process of
running the final 1:15 off the
clock with a three-point lead.
"Either it was a coaching
miscue or they hadn't practiced
that, or whatever, but we were
lucky there," Bedell said. "We
were happy they didn't try to
foul us. The way we were
shooting at the free-throw line,
we were extremely happy they
didn't try to foul us."
Roosevelt had trouble with
Walker's man-to-man defense
early in the: game, but Walker
made enough mistakes to allow

play on the assist. Throughout the match,
Sebring was able to dominate every phase
of the game with superior speed and pass-
ing skills. And that's not even mentioning
the seldom pressured defense, who as a
group served as long range passers and
played solidly.
Sebring continued to dominate play and
put serious pressure on the Lehigh goal.
Senior midfielder Jessica Bloemsma put
the match out of reach when she boomed a
long, unassisted goal from 25 yards out to
raise the goal count to 4-0 during the 35th
minute. Diaz answered with an unassisted
goal several minutes later to put Sebring in
control 5-0 during halftime.


Coach Ashley was pleased to see his
team get the shutout despite playing
everyone and mixing up the positions.
"It's a shutout," he said. "It's exam
week, maybe we could have closed them
out earlier, but we got everybody in for
some playing time, so I was happy with
that. I was happy with the performance of
everybody all the way around."
Diaz picked up the hat trick of goals
during the 44th minute when she redirect-
ed a rebounded ball into the net for a goal,
and Reyes finished her scoring 10 minutes
later when she beat Ekenta for the third

Win keeps Lake Placid

perfect against Devils
BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK The Lady Red Devils
have never had a night to remember
against Lake Placid, and Monday night
was. most forgettable.
Cindy Andrade capped a five-goal night
with the game-ender in the 62nd minute to
give the visiting Lady Green Dragons an
8-0 mercy-rule victory against shorthand-
ed Avon Park.
"This was a great game
Lake Placid and the kids had a lot of
Sfun," Lake Placid head
W coach Elizabeth Sottile said.
Avon Park "They were all communicat-
ing and passing the ball real
well, and they played
Up Next defense. I'm happy with the
Devils host way they played today."
Mulberry on The Lady Red Devils (3-7
Thursday and overall, 3-4 in District 10-
are at Lake 3A) played minus three
Placid Friday starters who were absent
without leave, most notably
goalkeeper Stephanie Pickett. Co-captain
Tori Gurganus filled in nobly with 12
saves, but'was little match for a barrage of
30 shots from Lake Placid (8-7, 5-4).
"Tori didn't do bad," Avon Park head
coach Karen Watkins said. "I think she
could have dived a little more, but she did-
n't find out until 6 o'clock that she was
playing keeper tonight, so she did a good
job."
In contrast, Lake Placid keeper Angie


Ochoa only handled the ball once the
entire match. The play of the midfielders,
in particular Sottile's daughter Heather,
was what ultimately slanted the field in the
Green Dragons' direction, the coach said.
"Heather played an excellent, excellent
game," she said, referencing her pair of
assists. "She's a great player. She's very
aggressive, and she had a wonderful game


tonight."
Coach Sottile also noted the production
of her strikers, Andrade in particular.
Ashley Hurm opened scoring in the third
minute, and Andrade followed with the
first of four goals over a 16-minute span in
the 10th.

Braaten said. "It was just a real good

News-Sun, Wednesday, January 12, 2005


Reason No. 583 on why
football is on its way up and
the playoffs- have become so
compelling to a broader range
of people: We learn something
new every day about each
team, about each player and
about each mild-to-moderate
high ankle sprain.
We live in a time where
even a sixth-grader knows the
yards per rush of Ahman
Green during divisional away
games at night. Where your
stock broker can tell you the
last time the Chicago Bears
came back from a 14-point
deficit at half time, only to lose
by three. Learning is what
drives a lot of fans to watch
sports.
That's especially true after
this year's Wild Card weekend,
when we were all enlightened
by the surprise wins and per-
formances of several teams.
And for the moment, frozen
Lambeau Field was room tem-
perature, Mike Holmgren's
seat was a little hotter, and
Peyton Manning's arm was a
Quiznos' sub: pretty toasty.
Here are a few other things we
learned:
Jets 20
Chargers 17
It's pretty obvious what the
lesson is to all of us now:
Don't question the people who
are on the bus.
I think.
The bus?
The Jets are on the bus?
Herman Edwards made that
part very clear ... I think. And
after a big overtime win over
the Chargers in San Diego, the
Jets are still on it? Which
means the Chargers are off,
right? Maybe I don't under-
stand the bus.
Who else is allowed on the
bus? Is there a bus stop? Is it a
travel or tour bus? What kind
of mileage does the bus get?
Who drives it? Could I drive
it? What are the qualifications
needed to drive the bus?
- Can I bring outside food
onto,the bus?
In event, it still looks like a
long road ahead for New York
as they face another "Bus,"
Jerome Bettis, in Pittsburgh for
the divisional championship.
Ben Roethlisberger is 14-0
this season and beat the Jets
17-6 in their only meeting. Jets
quarterback Chad Pennington's
rating that game: 33.6.
Colts 49
Broncos 24
I'm going to go out on a
limb here. Peyton Manning is
good. There I said it.
And excuse my language
but Manning looked like one
happy camper after the game,
too.
I think we all learned that
the only way Denver is going
to beat the Colts is if No. 18
only plays one series.
Not only did he torch a
flawed Bronco defense for the
second most passing yards in
playoff history (457) and share
with Reggie Wayne 10 times
for 221 of those yards, the
third highest in the postseason,
but the Colts now get another
crack at Tom Brady.
For the Broncos, it was deja
vu all over again, ending their
season in Indianapolis for the
second straight season. Looks
like Jake Plummer found an
easier way to aggravate the
Denver faithful than the usual
tall middle finger.
The 49 points taped to the


OPEN MIC

JOHN RITTER


board is the most ever by a
Colts team in the playoffs and
the second most allowed by
the Denver.
Rams 27
Seahawks 20
The biggest lesson learned
here is that between Seattle
and St. Louis, the Rams are the
better team. And that's pretty
much it. Now if they could
only beat a team from another
division ...
The Seahawks and San
Francisco, both in St. Louis'
NFC West, make up for 55
percent of the Rams' 2004
wins.
However, with the win the
Rams became the first 8-8
team to ever win in the play-
offs, sweeping the three-game
set against Seattle on Saturday.
Their reward? The Mike Vick
experience. Atlanta beat St.
Louis in week two this season
34-17 at the Georgia Dome.
The Rams with the sixth
best offense in the league -
are 3-6 on the road this year
while the Falcons are 7-1 at
home.
Vikings 31
Packers 24
I think most of us would
agree that Brett Favre is proba-
bly not going to retire now.
But a lot of other questions
were resolved after
Minnesota's handling of the
Packers on Sunday night. We
learned that, yes, Minnesota
can win on the road. That yes,
Minnesota can win a big game.
And that yes, Randy Moss is
an ignoramus.
He had to be high as a kite.
And you know you've hit rock
bottom when SportsCenter
would rather turn its head and
not show the highlight than get
the ratings it was sure to
receive with the clip of Moss
pretending to drop his drawers.
We learned that no matter how
ibig the receiver's hair gets, he
will always be burdened with a
small brain.
But the Vikings finally
looked like the team they were
supposed to be at the begin-
ning-of the season. The dys-
function that led the team to a
3-7 record in their final 10
games has apparently worn
away. And there's really no
better time. Minnesota will
have to go up against the
NFC's top seed in Philadelphia
for the second time. The
billing won't be as high now
that Terrell Owens is out but
the Vikings, after becoming the
second 8-8 team to win a play-
off game, will try to become
the first to ever win two.
Each game this weekend
will be a rematch of the regular
season. The home team is 4-0
in those games, although the
hosts only went 1-3 this past
weekend.

who led all scorers with 23,
scored the final six points of the
half for Roosevelt, including a
pair of free throws with 8.4 sec-
onds left in the half followed by
a steal of the inbound pass and
a layup to trim Walker's lead to
26-23 at intermission.
Five Roosevelt turnovers
aided Walker in a 10-2 run to
start the second half that
opened up a 36-25 lead, but
Roosevelt climbed back into
the game behind Alexander,
whose 3-pointer with 6:25 'left
in the game made Walker's lead


LEAD
Continued from 1B
Alejandra Lopez supple-
mented her pair of assists with a
goal in the 37th to make it 6-0
at halftime, and Hurm, who had
two assists herself, scored a
second goal after the break to
set the stage for Andrade's
nightcap.
"That wasn't their starting
lineup, so that makes it even
worse," Watkins noted. "But
Lake Placid, they have a good
team. We have a lot to work
on."
Though not at 100 percent,
Sottile was pleased with the
way her team answered the bell
Monday, in contrast to flat per-
formances of the past.
"Some of our games this
year, we have not been playing
up to our full potential," she
said. "I expected to do a whole
lot better in the very beginning
of the season. I had my expec-
tations up very high because it
is such a great team."
Given her lowered expecta-
tions against Lake Placid,
Watkins said her team hung

The Lightning mounted sev-

Sebring plays Lemon Bay for
another district match Friday


just 43-41.
After a free-throw by Noel
Jabagat, Alexander hit a jump
shot with 2:58 left to make it a
one-point game, but Walker
kept the visitors off the board
from that point on, mostly due
to the successful stall.
Ryan Visser led Walker with
16 points and Paulo Aggabao
had 12.
"Give Roosevelt credit, they
,played hard all night," Bedell
said. "That little No. 3 (Junior
Jules), I don't know how many
steals he had, but he had a ton
of them. I think our guys and
maybe the coach, too came
out and took them way too
lightly and we were wrong to
do that."


tough in a trying circumstance.
"They knew they could have
done a lot better job, but when
you have three starters that
don't show up, and you've got
subs playing their positions, it
throws the girls off," she said.
The situation is not new for
Watkins, who has dealt with
midseason defections in the
past.
"It seems like every year
after Christmas, it goes down-
hill," she said. "We have exams
this week, too, kids are sick,
wintertime ... soccer's tough."
Regardless of the roster,
Avon Park has never beaten the
Dragons.
"It's time," Watkins said,
pointing to Friday's rematch at
Lake Placid. "We're playing a
varsity only game, so there's
going to be a lot of (junior var-
sity players) I'll move up.'
The matches Watkins is ulti-
mately focused on winning,
however, are next month..
"We still have districts to
look forward to," she said. "The
way I look at it there are three
games you have to win all year
long, and that's the three games
at district."

couple of practices between
now and then will help his
team.
"I think the girls will be
ready to play against Lemon
Bay," Ashley said, "because we
didn't play real good against
them the second half the first
time we played them. We
played real good in the first
half."

Plenty of lessons learned

coach Robert Sampson said,
"We beat some other teams
that, you know, I expect to beat.
This is not the same. This is a
game that I knew was going to
be tough because they returned
every player from last year's
team, so it was a big win for us.
And hopefully it's gonna lead
us a little bit down the road."
Sebring (11-3 overall, 1-2 in
the district) appeared to have
the game in control early when
Charlotte Rivard and Crumity
put down four points apiece to
lead 13-4. But the Lady Raiders
put together a 7-0 run to close
out the first quarter on a high
note.
Riverdale (6-6, 1-3) finally
took hold of the lead in the third
quarter when Chameisia Smith
dropped a 3-pointer into the
goal for a 36-33 edge. Two
minutes later Smith added a
free throw to make it 37-33.
The Streaks finally answered
in the fourth quarter with a
Crumity jumper and a Maryam
Younes foul shot. A minute
later, Nicole Dickerson nailed a
10-footer after an inbound pass
to make it 43-40.
With 3:29 remaining,
Riverdale then made its first big
slip-u'p, fouling Younes on a
rebound to force a double
bonus. Both foul shots went to
make it 43-42. Younes then tied

DiMarco for the game-winning
layup with six seconds left.
"I don't know what hap-
pened, to be honest," Avon Park
head coach Christie Hipps said.
"It's like they just gave the
game away."
The Lady Red Devils (8-4, 3-
1) had dominated play in the
second quarter, taking a 20-4
lead after a 16-0 run. Avon Park
outrebounded Frostproof 12-5
in the period while holding the
Lady Bulldogs without a field
goal until 14 seconds before
halftime.
"I got on them pretty good at
halftime," Braaten said. "They
weren't playing nearly as well
as they could."
Yet with a renewed effort and
five second-half 3-pointers,
Frostproof led the game in an
about-face.
"We were prepared for it,"
Hipps said of the long-range
assault. "It goes back to
defense."
Hipps was incensed at her
team's overconfidence and lack
of effort in the second half, and


the game with another freebie
when Riverdale was called for a
technical following a traveling
call with 44 seconds remaining.
Sebring then sent the game
into overtime with some clock
milking.
Younes' fame continued to
grow during the bonus ball
when she hit her second of two
3-pointers to give Sebring the
lead early.
"This was another game for
Maryam where she had 16
points and she hit two threes
and when she put the ball up I
was standing behind her and I
knew it was going to go in
when it left her hand. She hit a
big shot for us," Sampson said.
"And I think that was really big
for us right there and then she
hit a couple free throws and
getting that lead in overtime
was the big difference."
Crumity followed with
another trifecta a minute later to
all but end the Lady Raiders'
chance for a win.
"I thought we did a pretty
good job on defense," Sampson
said. "A lot better job than we
did in the district game last
year.
"The first part of the game
was a game of spurts. We
jumped out big and they came
back and went ahead and then
we came back. It was just a
game of spurts right there.
Shakinah held us together at the
end and Maryam did a great
job, also."

was disappointed her team let
the district lead slip through its
fingers with Friday night's trip
to Lake Placid looming.
"It hurts really bad," she
said. "We correct it by playing
defense, man-to-man defense,
and working on that in prac-
tice."
Ironically, Braaten said zone
defense helped compensate for
his team's height deficiency
and keep Lake Placid from get-
ting any second-chance points.
"We run that half-court zone,
and the reason is we are such a
short team," he said.
"We didn't have any offen-
sive rebounding," Hipps
lamented.
Davis, who delivered all of
her team-high 11 points coming
in the second half, took full
advantage.
"We can't say enough about
her," Braaten said of Davis.
"All the kids have really rallied
around each other."
Tacoria Jones was the lone
bright spot for Avon Park, scor-
ing six of her team's eight
fourth-quarter points and a
game-high 14 overall.
"It was an effort thing,"
Hipps said, explaining the col-
lapse.

hostess' dazzling participants at the 'News-Sun's' Berried Treasures
Cooking Contest Feb. 12 at the Highlands County Agri-Civic Center
in Sebring.

Cooking contest

participants dig up

'berried treasures'
News-Sutn
T he News-Sun will be celebrating its fifth year in hosting a
cooking contest in Highlands County on Saturday, Feb. 12,
in the Highlands County Agri-Civic Center. This year's
theme will be "Berried Treasures."
Local cooks will be able to try their hand at making dishes from
berries strawberries, grapes, blueberries, blackberries, raspber-
ries, gooseberries, boysenberries, cranberries, huckleberries and
more.
Due to the request from last year's participants, the contest loca-
tion has changed from the fairgrounds to the Highlands County
Agri-Civic Center for convenience.
"We took a survey last year and most of our participants found
the fairgrounds to be inconvenient for bringing their dishes in from
the parking lot, which was too far away from the venue location,"
said News-Sun Cooking Contest Coordinator Cindy Marshall.
"Others were not satisfied with their friends or family having to
pay to get into the fair to watch and support them during the con-
,test. ,
Therefore, the News-Siun has secured the Agri-Civic Center for
the contest, which will allow all participants free parking that is
close to the building and free entry into the event for family and
friends as well as free entry into the contest. There will not be a
limit of the number of participants this year either. Everyone who
submits a recipe and entry form will be entered into the contest.
"The noise from the outside bands also was a problem in the
past at the fairgrounds for the contest," Marshall said. "We were
constantly fighting to talk over the loud music and most of our par-
ticipants could not hear the cooking contest announcements."
The Agri-Civic Center auditorium is more of a clean and appro-
priate environment for a cooking contest, Marshall pointed out.
Plus, the large room has a dividing wall that will allow the judges
to have privacy during the judging while participants and others
enjoy a food demonstration provided by the Florida Strawberry
Growers Association. The association also will have literature and
free samples to hand out.
Berry demonstration
In 1982, the Florida Strawberry Growers Association was offi-
cially formed. This organization became a voice for Florida straw-
berry growers. The mission for the handful of farmers was to
become "partners in research, promotion and member/community
service." In the years since then, the growers have met that mission
and succeeded in forming a voluntary organization that represents
more than 7,000 acres of berries.
Dee Dee Grooms of Fancy Farms will be the "berry hostess" for
the day at the Berried Treasures Cooking Contest. Grooms and her
husband own and operate Fancy Farms located off County Line
Road in Plant City. They are a third generation farm family and
have been in the business 30 years. She is a wonderful homemak-
er and dedicates her culinary and decorating talents to the FSGA
organization.
She was born and raised in the Plant City community and the
passion and love for strawberries, agriculture and her community
runs deep through her veins. So to learn about 30 years of straw-
berry experience this is one talented lady you don't want to miss.
People around these parts say on of the most Fancy things about
Fancy Farms is Dee Dee Grooms.
Contest rules
The categories for this year's contest will include adult division
(18 and older) appetizers, cakes, pies and other berried treasures;

With Cheese,


Please

Cheese goes with everything. Hamburgers. Crackers.
Or a glass of vintage wine. To get the most of your
cheese selections, follow these pointers.
* To achieve full flavor, remove cheese from the refrigerator
one hour before eating or serving. (But be sure not to leave
in unrefrigerated longer than two hours)

* Cheese right out of the refrigerator is easiest to cut or shred.

* When storing in the refrigerator, wrap cheese in airtight


plastic to minimize moisture loss.

* Eat soft cheeses (cottage or cream cheese) within two weeks.

* Semisoft cheeses (Gouda, Havarti and Cheddar) last up to
one month.
