Hospital ready for latest expansion project


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING They're grow-
ing again at Florida Hospital
Heartland Medical Center.
The construction trailer is
parked in front of the bright
white three-story complex and
officials say they are ready to
start yet another expansion.
This one will add another 36
rooms to the facility in what has
become a steady stream of


expansions and improvements.
"Our medical staff came to
us and asked us for the addi-
tional beds," Florida Hospital
Heartland Division President
John Harding said.
That's when the planning
began. The construction actual-
ly started in May 2004.
SHarding said the site prepara-
tion for this newest addition
could begin 'within the next
couple of weeks. Completion


tentatively is scheduled for
January 2006.
"We estimate this project will
run in the neighborhood of $8-
$10 million," Harding said.
"But we consider it an invest-
ment in the community."
The new facilities will be
built on the front of the hospital,
on the second floor overlooking
the lake. The addition is part of
the original construction plan,
which ultimately could see the


county's largest medical facility
stretch as much as five stories
high with 450 beds.
"We're delighted to have
Mark Stevens Construction out
of Fort Myers to do the work,"
Harding said. 4
Stevens originally worked
with Compass Construction out
of Cape Coral but since has
gone on to form his own com-
pany.
"Mark worked with Compass


on our first two expansions,"
Harding said. "We're using the
same engineers and a lot of the
same players on this project."
When Florida Hospital first
opened in 1997 it had 101
licensed beds at its Sun 'N Lake
facility. Two projects later that
has jumped to 111 beds.
"Our goal is to get some-
where in the neighborhood of
150-160 beds on this campus

but no one suspected that this would
be a night of unparalleled bravery,
sacrifice, and miracles.
Now deceased, Lake Placid resi-
dent Ed Dionne, a first sergeant of the
Army Finance Corps, had just fin-
ished his rounds on deck. Checking
the lookouts on the gun turrets, he
then went to the galley to be sure
there would be hot coffee and sand-
wiches for those coming off duty.
Then tossing his overcoat and life
jacket on his bunk, he retired to the
head, because it was the only warm
and lighted, private place on the
whole ship where he could write a let-
ter to his new bride. That's when it
hit.
It was 12:45 a.m. The first torpedo
ripped through the starboard side with
an enormous explosion. An instant
later a second one hit the boiler room.

next hurricane hits Hardee
County, it will be far better pre-
pared to weather the storm.
That's what Emergency
Management Director Richard
Shepard hopes after the county
finishes working with the state
Hazard Mitigation Grant
Program.
"(We) really want to work on
strengthening and retrofitting
infrastructure," Shepard said.
This includes the Hardee
County Courthouse and other
public buildings, including the
county's emergency operations
center. Shepard said he had
time after the hurricane season

and fast.
It's not known how many died in
the initial blasts. But for those still
alive, it was sheer panic. There would
be many heroes that night credited
with the survival of 240 men, but in
the annals of military history, this tor-
pedo attack would be known as "The
Story of the Four Chaplains."
Normally only one chaplain served
4,000 to 5,000 men, but the
Greenland project would be a long-
term remote outpost. Thus four chap-
lains were en route, all on the
Dorchester. They were: George L.
Fox, a Methodist minister; Alexander
D. Good, a Jewish rabbi; Clark V.
Poling, a Dutch Reformed minister;
and John O. Washington, a Roman


Catholic priest.
Amidst chaos and terror, with the
ship engulfed in flames and listing
badly, the chaplains moved about
calmly, directing frightened and dis-
oriented men to lifeboats, and passed
out life jackets with unruffled preci-
sion. There would have been enough
lifeboats and jackets except that all
those on the starboard side had been
destroyed in the explosion and ensu-
ing flames. When the supply of jack-
ets was exhausted, the chaplains -
without hesitation stripped off
their own and put them on the
remaining young men, never ques-
tioning if that man's creed matched
their own.

impressed with it. The Hardee
County facility didn't have
bunks for shower facilities to
make the place more self-suffi-
cient for overnight stays.
The building needs more
security features, which will be
handled through the
Department of Homeland
Security. It also needs confer-
ence rooms for break-out ses-
sions from 'the main "war
room," and room for formal or
informal press meetings.
Outside of the building,
Shepard would like to upgrade
to an 800 megahertz radio sys-
tem for the county.

Rules must


be followed


for roadside


memorials

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING When Dennis Barlaug
was hit and killed on March 13, 2004, at
Sebring. Drive and U.S. 27, in front of
Village Inn Restaurant, a white cross
appeared.
A simple white disk on a pole has taken
its place to warn motorists to drive care-
fully.
Reportedly, Latino immigrants to the
United States and Canada brought the tra-
dition of placing crosses along roadsides
to honor loved ones killed in accidents.
Even country music singer Randy Travis
recorded a song called "Three Wooden
Crosses" about bus passengers dying in a
wreck. Such m memorials have become so
commonplace 'that some states regulate
them.
The Florida Department of
Transportation adopted standards for
appropriate remembrance signs eight
years ago. Dick Kane, FDOT communi-
cations director, recalled complaints
about a concrete, sea shell encrusted
memorial in the median of Interstate 4,
with roadside memorial services.
Faced with safety concerns and loved-
ones' emotions, the department compro-
mised. It now provides a 42-inch-high,
break-away pole at the back side of the
right-of-way, topped with white 15-inch
disk that reads "Drive Safely, in memory
(victim's name)." The state absorbs the
$15 cost of the marker and installation, as
long people submit an FDOT request
form and have approval from the victim's
family. Kane said. it pained one family
whose teenage daughter died in a wreck
near Tallahassee to drive past her memo-
rial each day.
FDOT markers remain until FDOT has
a construction projection that part of the

Chen approved to build homes north of Byrd


County splits Lake
Placid commercial
use request
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING On Tuesday,
commissioners voted to make
zoning consistent north of Lake
Byrd, and open about nine acres
for single-family homes.
If fully built, an 8.65-acre
parcel on the north shore of
Lake Byrd and at the end of
Silver Oak Drive could add
about 18 homes to subdivisions
to the northwest of Avon Park.
Land use changed from agricul-
ture to medium-density residen-
tial. Zoning changed from agri-


cultural to residential district.
Owner Tony Y. T. Chen
wants to build an exclusive
neighborhood with an entrance
at the end of the Silver Oak
Drive cul-de-sac. Homes would
use septic tanks because there is
no central sewer line to that
area yet. Rick Whidden, speak-
ing for the applicant, said Chen
would consider hooking homes
up to a sewer if the lines come
available, but did not want that
as a condition of the rezoning
and land-use application.
County staff would also like
Chen to connect his roads to
any future development on
empty land to the east.
Commissioner Bob Bullard said
he would want to be careful


about connecting any more
development to Lake Byrd
Road. Residents there have
always opposed more develop-
ment and traffic.
Vincent Narciza, a resident
on West Silver Oaks Drive, said
he didn't want to see more traf-
fic on that road without some
repair work. Six-inch-deep pot-
holes, some three or four feet
long, litter the cul-de-sac, while
the entrance road is hardly wide
enough for two moving cars to
pass by each other.
"I don't think it can maintain
that (increased) traffic," he said.
County Administrator Carl
Cool recalled that road being 18
feet wide, but said the number
of houses on it right now may


qualify it for county mainte-
nance. All he needs is a resident
to make the request and county
staff can look into it.
Chen said he's lived on the
same street, and would like to
see it in better shape, too.

Commercial use split
For two non-adjacent agri-
cultural parcels south of Lake
Placid, county commissioners
approved the smaller of the two
for commercial use and busi-
ness zoning, but balked on the
second one as premature.
Commissioners agreed to
change land use on 20.87 acres
on the north of State Road 70
and one-half mile west of U.S.
27 from agriculture to commer-


cial, and to change zoning from
commercial to business district.
They did not see the need to
change another 74.5 acres on
the west side of U.S. 27, just
south of Little Lake Grassy, in
the same way.

Dale Polston, speaking for
Lake Placid Groves L.L.C., said
the land may eventually be res-
idential. While Commissioner
Barbara Stewart commended
the owner for trying to work
with a long range plan, both she
and Commissioner Bob Bullard
said the 75-acre request was too
soon. Bullard said he wanted to
see a better ecological buffer for
Little Lake Grassy with that
kind of land use.



Advice from

health care

officials: 'Get

a flu shot'

By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING At first, local
residents were waiting in lines
that stretched into shopping
center parking lots to get a flu
shot. People were desperate to
prove they were "at risk" so
they would qualify for a dose
of the vaccine.
Now, anybody in Florida
who wants a shot can get one.
In fact, Florida Department of
Health Secretary John
Agwunobi said there are ade-
quate supplies of both adult and
pediatric flu vaccines.
Highlands County Health
Department Director Dr. Paula
Thaqi said that's also the situa-
tion here.
"We have about 1,300 doses
of adult vaccine and another
1,200 pediatric doses," she
said.
Individuals wanting a shot
may simply walk into the
health department's main office
on George Boulevard or the
Lake Placid branch office from -
8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday
through Thursday and ask for
the inoculation.
"So far, the demand has not
been that great and it has not
disrupted our normal clinics,"
she said. "If all of a sudden we
get a huge demand and it inter-
rupts our clinics then we'll
have to make some other
arrangements."
A national flu vaccine short-
age developed last year when
British regulators shut down
shipments from Chiron Corp.,
which had made 48 million flu
shots in an English factory that
were destined for the United
States. The decision cut the
U.S. supply of flu shots almost
in half.
Initially, only high risk indi-
viduals including, those 65
years of age or older, children
6-23 months of age, people
with chronic health problems
and pregnant women got the
shots. Health workers actually
took the first shipments to nurs-
ing homes.

SEBRING Members of
the Highlands Art League gath-
ered at the Hansen Center on
Sparta Road Wednesday to
make a $2,000 donation to the
Children's Home Society/
Hansen House.
"We appreciate that you
picked the Hansen Center. It
helps us get our name out even
more," Executive Director of
the Children's Home Society's
Gulf Coast Division Teri
SaunJers said.
She said the money had no
specific target, but would be
used to help with operating
costs and legislative advocacy.
The donation represents a
six-month program conducted
by the art league entitled
"Change for our Children." The
goal was to raise money for
both the Hansen House as well
as the .art league's own chil-
dren's programs.
There were 75 one-gallon
cans and 1,000 quart cans dis-
tributed as donation points.
Each was painstakingly hand
labeled and delivered.
"We raised about $7,000,"
said Patsy Cross, who served as
the director of children's chari-
ty for the art league. "The main
point to remember is that all of
the money stays here locally in
our community."
Several organizations helped
with the program by offering
incentives.
"The Sebring Downtown
Merchants arid Professional
Association gave discounts "to
those people who hosted cans,"
Cross said.
Members of the Sebring
Noon Rotary kicked in a $250
match to the collection, with the
members adding in excess of
$400 to the pot.
"They were so kind to us. I
was touched by their generosi-
ty," Cross said.
She termed the success of the
collection "incredible," espe-
cially in light of the three hurri-
canes that hit Highlands County
last year and the economic dev-
astation it wrought.
The second round of the pro-
gram will be launched in a few


months. While the inaugural
campaign was held from June
to December, the second effort
will be conducted from May to
November, with the collection
of the donation cans set to coin-
cide with the 2005 edition of
the art festival now known
as The 12 Hours of Art &
Community.
The official kick off for the
2005 campaign is set for May
12.
In addition to the charities
served in the 2004 collection,
the Take Stock in Children pro-
gram will be added for the sec-
ond edition of the program.
Some of the other money is des-
tined for the art league's own
scholarship program.
"This year, we were able to
triple our college-bound schol-
arships. We gave one $500
scholarship last year. This year
we will give one each to of the
high schools Avon Park,
Sebring and Lake Placid," she
said.
The balance of the money is
targeted for the art league's
summer school programs, also
known as summer camp..
The Hansen Center is a
licensed 20-bed emergency
shelter care program for chil-
dren who have been removed
from their caretakers because of
abuse, neglect, or abandon-
ment.
The primary focus of the pro-
gram is to keep children safe,
maintain sibling groups intact,
and provide a nurturing envi-

ronment. The program provides
services for the Department of
Children and Families, in
District 14 which includes
Highlands, Hardee and Polk
counties.

Funding comes from the
Department of Children and


Families, the United Way of
Central Florida, Inc., the
Department of Education, and
private contributions. Private
funding is generated through
individual and corporate contri-
butions and special events.
The program serves more
than 100 children annually.


Langford outlines Partners in Crisis


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK Judge
David Langford was the guest
speaker at the chamber of com-
merce breakfast Thursday
morning. He spoke about the
new group, Florida Partners in
Crisis, which is comprised of
individuals and agencies work-
ing with people suffering men-
tal illness or struggling with
substance abuse.
He explained that its main
focus is to bring related issues
out into the open where they


can be thoroughly discussed,
and policy formed as a result.
For this reason, Partners in
Crisis will be particularly active
in talking to state administra-
tion officials and members of
the legislature.
At this time, the Florida
penal system is the single
largest house of the mentally
ill in the state, with 23 percent
of all inmates diagnosed with
problems.
One the issues Partners on
Crime will be addressing is the
monitoring of individuals who


have been placed in involuntary
treatment through the Baker
Act.
Individuals are admitted to
treatment centers against their
will under the Baker Act if they
are deemed to be a danger to
themselves or to others.
That treatment is typically of
short duration and follow up
policies need to be created. A
guardian advocate program also
has to be created. Family mem-
bers often advocate for loved
ones during brief hospitaliza-
tions.

Police t

a Highlands County report


Puma faces

aggravated

battery with a

motor vehicle
SEBRING At 10 p.m.
Jan. 22, an 18-year-old man
went with several friends to a
party in the Harder Hall area.
When he
arrived, other
; friends told
il him Thomas
Eugene Puma,
20, of
Sebring, was
there and
PUMA wanted to
fight him. The young man
didn't want to fight Puma, but
wanted to talk, so he found
Puma sitting in a car and went
to talk with him.
Reportedly, Puma rolled up
his window and refused to
talk, so the young man
walked away toward the front
of Puma's black Mitsubishi
Eclipse.
When he reached the front
of the car, Puma allegedly put
the car in drive and tried to
run over him. The young man
was knocked down and
dragged for 50 feet, where he
was thrown into a neighbor's
yard.
Puma allegedly turned the
car around and started to
come back. A friend of the
young man called to Puma to
stop, and Puma allegedly
went after the friend, hitting
him with a rear view mirror
on his car.
Puma then left the area and
didn't return.
Later, he allegedly called


the victim on a phone and
threatened to "put him under
the dirt" if he called police
about it.
The young man was treated
at Highlands Regional
Medical Center in Sebring for
minor cuts and bruises,
reports said.
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies tried to locate Puma,
but couldn't. Later, on Jan.
23, they did find Puma and
arrested him on charges of
aggravated battery with a
motor vehicle. He was held
without bond.

Sex offender

charged with

not registering
LAKE PLACID On
Sunday, Jan. 23, Highlands
County sheriff's deputies
charged Joel Wayne Ralston,
25, of Lake Placid, under a
warrant for not registering as
a sex offender.
According
to complaint
-affidavits,
Ralston is 6
feet tall,
weighs 220
pounds, has
RAbrown hair and
RALSTON brown eyes.
On Sept. 19,
2004, deputies visited his
address at 1324 Oleander St.,
Lake Placid to verify he lived
there and were told he hadn't
lived there for approximately
one and a half months,
On Sept. 22, 2004, deputies
checked with the division of
motor vehicles and found that
- his listed address was.still the


same. All registered sexual
offenders are required to noti-
fy and update their Florida
identification card and/or dri-
ver's license with the new
address within 48 hours of
moving.
He has been located and
arrested, and is being held at
the Highlands County Jail
with bail set at $100,000.

Milam charged

under burglary,

grand theft

warrants
SEBRING At 8:30 p.m.,
Dec. 30, a Highlands County
sheriff's deputy was sent to
the Kendall Apartments on
Kent Drive on the report of a
shooting.
He saw a
man fitting
the descrip-
e tion of asus-
pect and
stopped to
talk with
him, but the
MILAM man threw
down the
bicycle he was riding and a
black duffel bag and ran. He
was eventually caught when
he entered a residence on
Emerson Avenue in Sebring.
The man, Heath Earl
Milam, 22, of Sebring, was
charged with burglary of an
occupied dwelling, and resist-
ing or obstructing an officer
without violence. No bond
was set.
Deputies searched his duf-
fel bag and found an X-Box
game console, several X-Box
games and several DVDs.
At 2:03 a.m. Jan. 1, 2005,
the victim called the
Highlands Cotnty Sheriff's
Office and reported his
Kendall Apartment residence


Fourman and Briseno attend income tax seminar


Thomas Fourman and Maria
Briseno of Done Right Business
Services, Frostproof and
Sebring, attended an income tax
seminar in December put on by
TaxWorks Inc.
TaxWorks is Done Right
Business Services LLC's soft-
ware provider. The seminar was
in Orlando.
The seminar covered the new
tax law changes and how the
changes would affect the' tax
payer. It also demonstrated the
new enhancements to the soft-
ware that Done Right Business
Services LLC uses to prepare
tax returns and transmit them
electronically to the IRS.
In July, Fourman and


Briseno along with associates
J.E. "Jesse" James and Olivia
Sliwicki attended the IRS
National Tax Forum in Orlando.
The emphasis of the forum was
on the tax law changes and
electronic filing. The IRS is
putting forth a strong effort to
get as many tax payers as possi-
ble to file electronically.
Electronic filing, known as e-
filing, is faster, less chance of
errors ard since the tax return
goes through a preliminary
audit when it is filed, there is
less chance of the return being
audited later by the IRS.
Done Right Business
Services LLC is an authorized
e-file provider. They can also e-


file most state income tax
returns.
Two things that the IRS is
looking closely at is the earned
income credit and the Sub
Chapter S-Corporation. They
are checking the eligibility of
the dependents and making sure
that the taxpayer is entitled to
the EIC which is a refundable
credit.
They are checking the S-
Corp to make sure that stock-
holders are not passing through


unreasonable amounts of
money to avoid Social Security
and Medicare tax on the earn-
ings.
Fourman is the president of
Done Right Business Services,
with offices at 47 West Wall St.,
Frostproof and 219 East Center
Ave., Sebring. He can be
reached at (863) 635-6736 in
Frostproof. Briseno, James and
Sliwicki can be reached at 385-
8365 in Sebring.

had been burglarized. All of
the items that were stolen,
except for $3,000 cash,
matched those found in the
duffel bag, reports said. Total
value of the items stolen was
$1,400.
The victim has seen Milam
on his back porch the night of
the burglary and in the apart-
ment complex when he left
that evening.
On Monday, Jan. 24,
deputies found Milam, arrest-
ed him and charged him under
warrants for burglary of a
dwelling and grand theft. Bail
is set at $16,000.

Gary Coble

charged with

grand theft
AVON PARK On three
occasions in early 2004, it
was alleged that Gary Eugene
Coble, 48, of Sebring, stole
checks from a then 77-year-
old woman.
oBL o Allegedly,
he promised
to do carpet
work in her
Some, and
later received
checks for
COBLE $107.88 on
another later that day for
$150, and then a third on Jan.
31, 2004, for $433.84, and
then another that day for
$250. Finally, on Feb. 2, he
received a check for r$150.
Despite this, he never did
the carpet work, according to
complaint affidavits from the
Avon Park Police Department.
At 9 a.m. Jan. 25, 2005,
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies contacted Coble at
and apartment in Sebring, and

rants for grand theft, with bail
set at $1,000.

in Sebring.

VFW installing flag poles


News-Sun,
SEBRING In a campaign
to make Sebring "the most
patriotic city in the United
States," the Veterans of Foreign
Wars Post 4300 are prepared to
install a flag pole in anyone's
yard. It does ask for a donation
to cover the cost of the pole and
the flag, but the installation is
free.
The campaign is a labor of
love by Claude Presley and
John Smart. Presley served in
World War II, Korea and


Vietnam.
"My ambition is to install a
flag for every American citizen
killed in Iraq," he said. "There
is no higher honor than when a
man sacrifices his life for his
country. We have more individ-
ual freedom in America than
the rest of the world put togeth-
er. Let's enjoy it all and be
thankful for it we may not
have it forever."
To arrange for a flag pole and
flag, call John Smart at 385-
7538.


delivered a "State of the
District" speech during the
meeting, did not seem to expect
the transition to take the full 90
days.
District status
Puffenberger said the com-
munity pulled together during
the hurricanes. The district
water supply was never inter-
rupted, and experienced only
minor problems with waste-
water when generators had to
be put in place to operate lift
stations.
The district was able to sell
Phase V Bonds, involving
1,946 lots, to National
Recreation Properties Inc.,
which has since offered to buy
6,500 more lots.


General manager kept
on to aid transition
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Sun 'N Lake
of Sebring property owners re-
elected two supervisors to their
open seats Friday morning.
Charles McHale (seat 1), and
vice-president Bob Schaieffer
(seat 3) were both re-elected
during what several attendants
noted was one of the calmest
property owner meetings for
some time.
Right after the election, the
Sun 'N Lake Board of
Supervisors delved into its
agenda.
Management contract
Even though supervisors
have chosen Severn Trent
Management Services to take
over daily operations in the dis-
trict, the contract is still being
negotiated. It's not expected to
be ready by Feb. 1, the expect-
ed turn-over day.
Lisa McGehee, who served
her final day as Sun 'N Lake
administrative services director
on Friday; said supervisors still
have a few issues to iron out
and some "tweaking" to do on
the contract.
The contract was tabled to a'
later meeting. .
Puffenberger still on
In the meantime, for the next
90 days at the most, George
Puffenberger, acting general
manager, will stay on under
contract with the district to help
Severn Trent make a smooth
transition. Puffenberger, who

SEBRING When the cus-
tomers of Sebring Ridge
Utilities get their next water
bill, it will be from the city of
Avon Park.
"We closed on it Wednesday
afternoon," Avon Park City
Manager C. B. Shirey said.
The city purchased the sys-
tem at a cost of $1.8 million,
with another $30,000 in closing
costs.
He said there were no last
minute glitches or other prob-
lems. In fact, the transition
should be almost seamless.
Avon Park municipal workers
have been at the Sebring Ridge
plant off and on for about the
past month in an effort to get
familiar with the operation.
One thing that might be dif-
ferent for the new customers is
the city's rate structure.
"We're a little higher, but it's
not much," he said.
Shirey said there already
have been "four or five" new
connections to the system since
.the closing Wednesday and he
expected more.
"They're coming to us," he

Land on Lake

Pythius zoned

for residential
News-Sun
SEBRING The only
problem county commissioners
had Tuesday with allowing sin-
gle-family home lakefront lots
on Lake Pythius was possible
increased traffic.
They asked the applicant,
Hauptmann-Thompson
Company Inc., when dividing
the 19.37 acres on the north
side of Shockley Road into lots,
if he would put two houses on
each driveway to improve traf-
fic flow on the road.
Dale Polston, speaking for
the applicant, Stephen P. High,
said many people buy two or
three lots at a time and build
one large house, especially
with lakefront property.
High said the challenge for
him was creating "a product"
and a subdivision that fits what
he believes the county will
want in the long term. He pro-
poses having one acre or larger
lots with septic tanks and on-
site wells.
"We don't want more (than
13) lots," he said.

said.
Shirey said he also had been
contacted by nearby residents
asking if the city might consid-
er extending the lines into new
neighborhoods so that they too
could get the water service.
No immediate improvements
are planned to the system. In
fact, Shirey said most of the
preliminary work has gone into
incorporating the new cus-
tomers into the city's database.
"We're just getting the
billing accounts set up and tak-
ing inventory," he said. "But we
do plan on some improvements
down the road."
It was in August that the city
gave Shirey the go ahead to
start negotiations with the own-
ers to purchase the 950-cus-
tomer system.
Some of the council mem-
bers saw a dual purpose in the
buy-out. First, it will allow the
city eventually to loop its water
system down U.S. 27 to Valerie
Boulevard, then back up
Memorial Drive to the city lim-
its.
Secondly, some council
members saw the establishment
of their water system into the


area as a demarcation line
between Avon Park and
Sebring.
At its last meeting, the coun-
cil passed a new water billing
complaint review policy.
Municipal Public Works
Director Ted Long said the pol-
icy marks the start of a whole
new utility ordinance.
Under the provisions of the
new measure, when city offi-
cials receive a complaint about
bills, crews first will inspect the
meter. If customers don't accept
the results, crews will conduct a
second series of tests with a
utility service analyzer.
Finally, if that is not accept-
able, the meter will be removed-
and sent to the factory for their
review.
However, the second and
third examination will be paid
for by the customer.
Also written into the policy
are rules that prohibit the city
manager from forgiving any of
the bills where tests have indi-
cated that there are no problems
with the meters. Additionally,
no adjustments may be made
unless it can be proven that the
city equipment is responsible


for the increase of consump-
tion.
It was in 2003 that the city
installed 8,500 brand new
meters, replacing all of the units
in the system.
Prior to the installation, it
was estimated the city might be
losing as much $370,000 in
unaccounted for water usage.
In fact, some of the meters
that were removed actually
were stuck, registering zero
water use for the residence.
Council members said the
new policy could be "folded in"
to the new utilities system rules
and regulations.
Long called the ordinance "a
major overhaul of the system."
It will regulate everything from
water quality to payment plans.
"This is a lot more exten-
sive," he said.
The plan is based on a similar
measure used by the city of
Tavares.
"I looked at a lot of similar
plans and picked this one," he
said.
A committee has been
reviewing the provisions of the
policy before they bring it back
to the city council..

Former Avon Park High School band director Vic MicKunas (above) brought his directing skills
back to the city as a clinician for the Heartland Honors Band Concert on Thursday in the South
Florida Community College Auditorium. MicKunas, who directed the APHS band in the 1970s,
was the clinician for the middle school band. Dr. Joan Jossim, band director at Florida Southern
College in Lakeland, was the clinician for the high school band. Each of the bands played a
number of songs, much to the delight of the crowded auditorium. Top student musicians from
Highlands, DeSoto, Glades, Hardee% Hendry and Okeechobee counties made up the honors
bands.

Harder Hall headlines docket


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING City council
members will be looking at
Harder Hall, making prelimi-
nary preparations for some
downtown events in conjunc-
tion with the Mobil 1 12 Hours
of Sebring and taking care of
the municipal swimming areas
among other things when they
meet Tuesday evening.
City officials continue to
investigate charges leveled
against the developers of
Harder Hall.
The council will have the
opportunity to review the situa-
tion in a discussion over a
$7,000 permitting fee.
Reportedly, that fee originally
was paid by developer Marc
Shenker for Secor's Trinity
Development to do the work.
However, Trinity has pulled
*out of the project and Shenker
_ is asking that the $7,000 fee be


transferred to a new permit, or
that the council waive the levy
entirely.
Sebring building official Jim
Jacobs currently is waiting for
representatives of Joran
Development to pull a permit so
he can go in and have a look at
what may or may not have been
accomplished in the past few
weeks.
Jacobs, Sebring City Council
President John Griffin, City
Administrator Bob Hoffman,
former project manager Gary
Puckett and the former general
contractor on the project, Mike
Secor, recently had a sit ',wn
to talk about the situation.
Jacobs reportedly penned a
letter to Shenker, reiterating
that no work was to be done on
the historic property until a per-
mit is pulled. Any work that
might have been done without a
permit would have to be
redone.


That proviso excludes out-
side work, landscaping work
and demolition work.
Sebring city officials also
have requested that municipal
employees have access to the
job site at all times.
Meanwhile, nothing has been
heard from the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs. State officials have
refused to sign off on a pro-
posed $5:1 million Section 108
loan from the United States
Department of Housing and
Urban Development.
In other action Tuesday
evening, a couple of requests
will be made regarding events
in conjunction with the annual
12 Hours of Sebring.
Among those items, Sebring
Community Redevelopment
Agency Executive Director
Pete Pollard is scheduled to ask
that the Circle be closed forthe
annual Taste of the Race.


Editor's note: The News-Sun
has been publishing news
about Highlands County since
1927. As a treat for our read-
ers, we have gone through our
archives and pulled some sto-
ries from previous issues that
we will share on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy
this Flash From the Past of
Sept. 30, 1938.
Federal Highway Number
Nineteen will be the preferen-
tial highway of the state, mem-
bers of a local delegation stated
here Monday evening after
attending a meeting in Arcadia
called by Representative John
S. Burks as member of the state
road planning committee of the
state legislature, for the purpose
of hearing reports of legislature
and other county officials and
citizens of DeSoto, Hardee,
Highlands, Glades and Hendry
counties.
Highlands county had by far
the largest delegation at the
meeting, nearly half of those
present at the meeting being
from Avon Park, Sebring,
DeSoto City, Lake Placid and
Venus.
Some of those attending the
meeting gave as their reason for
believing the proposed federal
highway will be listed first in
the state is because of its mili-
tary importance and because,
under the set-up of federal aid,
it can be built with less expense
to the state than any other of the
proposed highways; and
because it will serve all the peo-
ple in the state by relieving traf-
fic from coastal highways.
Representative Burks opened
the meeting, stating its purpose.
The state now has 9000 miles of
state roads to maintain, many of
which are really community
roads; and if we keep following
the system of designating and
building state roads without a
systematic plan, in a few years
,,we will have twenty thousand
miles of roads and not have
funds to maintain them.


"It has gotten to where the
county that yells the loudest
gets the most," he said. "We
must have trunk highways
which we will designate as pri-
mary roads, we can get fifty
million dollars for these roads
soon."
He displayed a map prepared
by the state planning survey
department which showed road
nineteen as a primary road. It
was evident by his attitude that
the question of its status as a
primary road was already set-
tled.
Ivey Futch of Lake Placid
spoke for the Highlands county
delegation which was headed
by Representative M. C.
Whitehurst.
Highlands, Glades and
Hendry counties all gave
Federal Route Nineteen as their
preference as a preferred high-
way, with Representative Joe
Peeples speaking for Glades
and Representative Elbert
Stewart speaking for Hendry
county.
Highlands county's propos-
als were:
Primary route 19 from
Leesburg via Haines City, Avon
Park, Lake Placid, Moore
Haven and Clewiston, then via
state road 25 and 26 to Miami.
Secondary-State Road 18
Lake Annie to Arcadia and
Bradenton and state road 8,
Lake Annie to Fort Pierce. .:;
Glades county, primary route
19, as Highlands ,ecndridjh'


road from Okeechobee to
Lakeport, than over 25, 40 and
29 to Fort Myers. It was said
the east shore of Okeechobee is
unprotected by dikes and a big
highway would permit quick
evacuation of citizens in emer-
gency.
Hendry county, primary
route 19 also 164, Caseytown
to LaBelle; secondary, LaBelle
via 25 and 142 to Moore
Haven, via 29 to Okeechobee
via 8 to Fort Pierce.
Hardee county primary, No.
2, Bartow to Arcadia; No. 86 to
Punta Gorda to Manatee, con-
necting with No. 169.
DeSoto county, primary,
state road 32, Bartow to
Arcadia via 88 to Punta Gorda
via No. 5 to Fort Myers; also
either Sarasota or Bradenton
east to Arcadia, thence via No.
18 to Lake Annie, thence via
No. 8 to Fort Pierce; secondary,
Arcadia to Olga, via No. 2. A
cross state highway as primary
was asked so DeSoto can get
big cattle and citrus shipments
to East and West coasts for
shipments by boat.
Representative Burks
announced that there will be a
meeting in Bartow, Oct. 10, to
review the systems of highways
as they are worked out for the
First Congressional District of
which he and Senator Locke
Kelley of Clearwater are the
committee on road planting for
the legislative committee. -

Lake Placid's Project Graduation


collecting prom gowns for sale


Prom


fashions


modeled *


by seniors


By LINDSEY MURPHY
News-Sun
AVON PARK -As the
gymnasium of Avon Park High
School filled with supportive
students, 18 members of the
senior class strutted their stuff
to the sound of lively music.
The second annual Prom
Fashion Show is not only a
major fund-raiser for the junior
class, which is in charge of dec-
orating for prom, but it is also
an adoring hit for the students.
The fans cheered for their
classmates who were trans-
formed into models during the
one class period show.
The ladies were dressed in
beautiful gowns courtesy of
Robyn Lynn's, a dress boutique
in Lakeland. There were a mix-
ture of styles, including slim-
fitting, shimmering dresses, to
the Cinderalla-style ballroom
dress.
Nelsi Alexis wore a gor-
geous orange colored gown,
while Samantha Gbrnto walked
in wearing a dazzling flared
pink dress.
It gave the young women in
the audience a taste of what
they might want to wear for the
2005 Prom.
The gentlemen were dressed
to the "tee" in suit and tuxedos
from After Hours Formal Wear.
The young men were dressed to
match the ladies that they were
escorting. The vests ranged
from green to light pink to the
classic black.

LAKE PLACID Lake
Placid High School's Project
Graduation Committee is
launching a new fund-raiser this
year. On Saturday, Feb. 12, it
will be selling prom gowns on
consignment.
Penny Lewis, who is coordi-
nating the project, got involved
in raising money for Project
Graduation since her daughter
is a senior at Lake Placid High.
"I was trying to think of dif-
ferent things we could do that
haven't been done before,"
Lewis said. "I have two girls
myself, and I have a closet full
of gowns. What are you going
to do with them once they grad-
uate?"
Her solution serves a double
purpose. Women have the
opportunity to get money back
on the gowns they have invest-
ed in over the years, and teens
have the chance to pick up a
prom dress for a fraction of its
original cost.
Gowns will be priced at $100
or less. Owners of the gowns

Bobby Palmer (left) and Jorge Gonzalez, seniors at Avon Park High
School, take a moment to receive applause during the second annual
Prom Fashion Show hosted by the junior class.


Donald Spurlock III worked
the crowed in what was referred
to as, "not your father's suit,"
and Vaughh Stukes surely had
the ladies swooning in his clas-
sic tux. These young men
seemed like naturals on the run-
way. As Jorge Gonzalez stated,
"It was super fantastic."
Narrating the show were
Avon Park juniors Lee
Albritton and Catlin Gerbert.


Their ease at the microphone
seemed to echo throughout the
gym. The' feeling that was left
by these two masters of cere-
monies was one that might be
felt at a New York fashion
show.
All the fun was in hopes of
raising enough money to have a
wonderful junior-senior prom,
hosted this year at Our Lady of
Grace Social Hall in Avon Park.


Vandals hit greens, fairways at Sun 'N Lake


SEBRING
Representatives of Kitson and
Partners Inc. are hoping to
catch vandals who damaged the
golf course this month at Sun
'N Lake of Sebring
Improvement District.
i"Ron W'onderling said Fnrda\
that someone in a'motorized


vehicle "did doughnuts" in two
of the fairways and one of the
greens over the last two weeks.
Gerry Geouque, director of
public safety, said that on Jan.
16, vandals hit the 16th fairway
on bqth courses, as well as.the
16 ,gr.en,on Turtle,R~. n,they
caused $1Q990 in damage ,,


Then, on the night of Jan. 26,
vandals hit the 6th fairway on
the Deer Run course and caused
$500-$1,000 in damage.
Geouque said the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office has
investigated the case and is

can set their own price with. the
understanding that 25 percent
of the sale will go to Project
Graduation. They may also
donate the gowns if they
choose.
"One lady offered to give us
seven gowns," Lewis said.
"Most parents on the Project
Graduation Committee said
they would give us dresses.
Granted, they're all working
toward the same goal as I am,
but it was nice to hear them say
that."
Lewis plans to donate a clos-
et full of gowns she has
acquired from raising two
daughters.
Dresses that don't sell will be
returned to their owners.
However, if the owners don't
want them back, they may be
given to-a local charity that, in
turn, can pass them along to
girls who wouldn't have the
money to buy them.
The committee is also
accepting accessories that go
with the gowns such as
handbags or gloves, for exam-
ple.


The sale will be from 1-4
p.m. Saturday, Feb. 12, in the
classroom building of First
Assembly of God, 327 Plumosa
Ave. Lewis said the gowns will
be put on display, and class-
rooms will be converted into
changing rooms with mirrors.
Those wishing to donate
gowns can drop them off at the
office of John Haile, P.A., 220
Dal Hall Blvd., in Lake Placid,
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays;
or at the Barranco Clinic, 3838
U.S. 27 South, in Sebring, from
1-5 p.m. weekdays.
Project Graduation is a
supervised party for high
school seniors and their guests
on graduation night. Once the
seniors enter the high school,
the dobrs are locked behind
them, and they can enjoy a
night of games, movies, music
and refreshments.
The goal is to create a safe
place for seniors to celebrate
their graduation and keep them
off the streets and away from
drugs and alcohol.
For details, call Lewis at
382-4800.


Bogey's on par with charities


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The new oper-
ators of the Sebring Municipal
Golf Course and clubhouse are
reaching out to the community
by offering deals to local chari-
ties.
Since they took over the
operation of the city-owned
facilities on the first of the year,
Rich Banko and Tom McClurg
have been working to let citi-
zens know that the clubhouse
has become a restaurant that is
open to the public.
In the past, it was required
that non-members be the guests
of members in order to patron-
ize the restaurant.
That no longer is the case.
Renamed Bogey's
Restaurant and Sports Bar,
Banko has announced that he
and McClurg want to help local


charities by establishing a cou-
ple of different programs.
Banko explained the first
method would involve charities
selling gift certificates to the
restaurant for half price.
"Say for example, they sell a
$20 gift certificate to Bogeys.
They collect the $20, give us
$10 and keep $10 for the chari-
ty," he explained.
The other way involves the
sale of the newly received
Bogey's cups.
"Somebody buys one of
these, every time they come in
and order something to eat,
we'll give them a-free beverage
with the cup," he said.
Banko said charities could
charge what they wanted for the
cups, and just remit the cost of
the cups 75 cents apiece
back to him.
"They keep the difference,"


he said.
Banko said they already have
had some interest from the
Relay For Life cancer fund in
doing the cup promotion.
"We just got the cups in last
week," he said.
The idea is. that any charity
or service who wants to use
either of the programs will have
the opportunity simply by con-
tacting Banko.
"It's a good deal for an
organization, because even if
they sell the cups for $5, the
people get their money back in
drinks if they come in just a few
times," he said.
Banko and McClurg decided
they would make community
involvement one of the center-
pieces of their management
'when they were awarded the
contract to run the golf course
and clubhouse last year.

The mitigation grant pro-

that were spent on public and

that grants will get awarded,
Shepard said. Applicants must

construction, family members
must make a new request. Still,
if markers are in place, and
aren't obstructing maintenance
crews, they are usually left
alone.
"We don't have 'marker
police,' Kane said.
Highlands County doesn't
have any such regulations for
local roads, said County
Engineer Ramon Gavarrete.
The county hasn't issued per-
mits for any such memorials,
but Gavarrete figures the coun-
ty may eventually adopt the
FDOT standard.
Kane receives calls from
national news organizations
since Florida seems to have
taken the lead by providing
roadside memorials. Some
states remove all of them.
Others leave homemade memo-

this time," Harding said.
He said each time the hospi-
tal has enlarged, the patient cen-
sus also has jumped. .
Harding declined to call the
expansion aggressive but would
say it has been steady. Each of
the expansions has come in
response to community patient
needs.
Just after the hospital
opened, officials looked to
expand the size and scope of the
emergency room because of the
patient load.
It has been an ongoing
process. There were expansions
of the emergency department in
1998, 2001 and 2003. They
involved enlargement of the
examination and waiting areas
and the construction of a new
triage facility.
There also has been in the
introduction of the Seascape
diagnostic imaging facility in
March 2002 with additions
there last year.
On Monday, Harding
revealed that another seven
beds had 'been added to the
emergency department in an
effort to take care of the num-
bers of injured and sick seeking
medical attention there.
And the plans for additional
services are lined up well into
the coming years.
"On the drawing board right
now we have a same day sur-
gery center we are looking at
doing, in cooperation with a
number of our local physi-
cians," he said.
It is one of a number of such
joint ventures the hospital has
considered to meet the needs of
the community.


Muhlfeld left to take a new job
in Tennessee late last year.
Shepard finds it a strange coin-
cidence that he, Muhlfeld and
Muhlfeld's predecessor Ty
DeJesus were all graduates
of Sebring High School within
a year or two of each other.
Originally, Shepard worked
as a firefighter with the county
department. During the
Hurricane Charley aftermath,
he became fairly well known to
television audiences as the
spokesman for the county.
In his first month, Shepard
has experienced a number of
"unique challenges and oppor-
tunities," but likens the job
from a firefighter's perspective
as "like saving lives and prop-
erty in slow motion."
"This job, like insurance,
goes unnoticed until you need
it," he said.


and don't distract motorists.
FDOT won't bother memori-
als on private property. For
example, a single wooden cross
stands draped with an athletic
jersey at the Vicki Drive
entrance of Lakeshore Mall as a
memorial to Michael Albin, 16,
who died on Oct. 31, 2003,
along with Derek Raposa, 17.
Mall management has allowed
friends and family to keep a
memorial site there, as long as
it is kept clean. Vandals
destroyed the memorial some-
time on the night of'Dec. 19,
2004, but the Albin family has
reconstructed their other half.
"I know people have mixed
emotions about the site being
there," said Albin's mother
Lisa, "but if it saves the life of
one teen or one adult,...."
In FDOT District 1, which
includes Highlands County,
family may call the district
maintenance team at (863) 519-
2314 to request the memorial
marker form.


Harding also pointed to a
number of new physicians who
have been brought to the area to
meet specialty diagnosis.
In fact, since 2001, Florida
Hospital has brought 49 new
doctors to the area including 28
specialists and 21 primary car
physicians.
Reportedly, it still is actively
recruiting doctors in a number
of highly specialized areas to
meet the needs of the communi-
ty including those in the field of
obstetrics and gynecology,
endocrinology, cardiology and
neurology among others.

Pauline Dionne of Lake
Placid is one of the few
remaining spouses of the sur-
vivors. She and her husband,
Ed, of 56 years, who died in
1999, dedicated the last five
years of his life traveling all
over Florida speaking to veter-
ans and historical groups.
"Ed never wanted to talk
about the experience until his
final years. But he felt he sur-
vived for a reason, that there is
a purpose in life, and telling
his story was part of it,"
Pauline said."His message title
was always Unity Without
Uniformity, and he felt it
revealed the strength that is
found in unity with one anoth-
er and with God."
Although Ed Dionne was
acquainted with the chaplains,
he was unaware of their hero-
ics until told about it later. It
took only 27 minutes for the
Dorchester to go under, and in
those first minutes he had been
below deck, helping stunned
and injured men to escape.
Power had been knocked out
and the darkness only added to
the confusion, but when he was
standing knee deep in water, he
knew it was time to go.
When he finally made it top-
side, the Navy men had depart-
ed probably more cognizant
that when a ship's demise is
certain you should get away as
fast and as far as possible.
Having left his life jacket on
his bunk, he ran from fore to
aft, (now the highest part)
searching for another, but
found none. By this time, the
ship had rolled over on its side
and he climbed onto the port
side hull, now somewhat hori-
zontal, thinking that his best
chance was to wait until the
last minute.


Tri-chamber mixer Thursday
evening. The outpatient facility
just recently came on line.
It is the newest in a series of
14 cancer institutes in the
Florida Hospital system.
Currently there are specialists
with a myriad of new equip-
ment.
Dr. Amit I. Shah is handling
the medical oncology program
with Dr. Neenad M. Shaw and
Dr. Syed E. Ahmed with the
radiation oncology program.
Planned for the future in the
cancer institute are a number of
clinical trials. Officials said
details on that program would
be forthcoming.


Finally he ran down the hull,
jumping portholes and took
what he always referred to as.
the world's longest broad jump
into the frigid oil-slicked water.
"Ed was a Boy Scout Master
from Sheboygan, Wis. He was
a strong swimmer, a sturdy-
built young man who felt that
even without a life jacket he'd
be OK," Pauline said.

North Carolina saw him and
yelled out, Ed swam to his raft
(a makeshift devise of planks
laid across steel drums, already
holding 14 men.) One of the
men screamed that he would
capsize them, and stabbed Ed's
hand to prevent him from
climbing on. So Ed clung to
the raft, and the knife scar was
a grim reminder for the rest of
his life.
The air temperature that
night was 19 degrees, and the
temperature of the water is
only a guess, but Navy spokes-
men later stated that under
those conditions a man in the
water could only last six min-
utes before succumbing to
hyperthermia, yet Ed Dionne
survived -in the water for
12 hours. Like most of the sur-
vivors, he was covered with a
thick coating of oil from the
wreckage, which formed an
insulation that decreased the
loss of body heat. They were
protected by oil, and many
believed by the powerful
prayers of four extraordinary
chaplains.
Men rowing away from the
doomed ship saw the chaplains
clinging to the sloping deck
with arms linked, and heads
bowed as they prayed to the
one God whom each of them
loved and served. Survivors
remembered hearing the four
men offer prayers for the dying
and courage for those who
would live. The four chaplains
were the living embodiment of
John 15:13: "Greater love has
no man than to lay down his
life for his friends."
A need to help
Without power, it was
impossible to radio for help,
but the crew on the Escanaba
-had seen flashes of the explo-
sions and summoned the
Comanche to assist, while the


Tampa, unaware of the tragedy,
had pushed on. The orders had
been for all ships to leave the
area quickly if there was a tor-
pedo attack, but the command-
ers of the two cutters probably
considered no other alternative
as they sped toward the flames.
Even after the Escanaba and
Comanche arrived at the scene,
the odds were against the res-
cue operation. Overloaded
lifeboats capsized, and some
men had jumped prematurely,
scattering them into the drift-
ing current, giving the small
red lights pinned to their life
vests an eerie glow of a distant
city.
With the ever-present threat
of U-boats, it was too risky to
stop dead in the water and pick
them up. Coastguardsmen used
bullhorns directing them to
grab safety nets as they passed
by. Some of the men were
picked up within 20 minutes,
but the cutters were limited in.
the time they dared circle the
area, and also in the capacity
they could carry.
It was noon before the cut-
ters returned from Greenland,
still finding men hanging onto
life and anything that float-
ed. But they were so frozen
they could barely move, let
alone grab onto safety nets.
Coast Guardsmen then donned
rubber exposure suits (the first
time ever used in a rescue),
jumped into the water, tied
ropes around the freezing bod-
ies and one by one plucked
them from the sea.
Ed Dionne was the next-to-
the-last man to be picked up,
and was shocked to realize the
Escanaba Coast Guardsman
who hoisted him over the side
was someone with whom he
had attended high school.
Recovery
Rushed into the tiny mess
halls, clothes were stripped off,
men were washed down, and
then dried and wrapped in
whatever was available. The
crews were forced to act as
doctors, treating for shock,
hyperthermia, and other
injuries. And to conserve valu-
able space, four men sat on the
edge of each table, one man
would lie on the top, and one
man was placed under it.
Before it was over, the Coast

Guardsmen's clothing was
grimy with oil as well, making
them look like a bunch of oil
well workers. Of the 240
saved, along the way, 10 died
from their ordeal. And four
months later, the CGC
Escanaba itself was torpedoed.
All but two of its heroic crew
members perished.
Once in the Greenland hos-
pital (which was nothing more
than a barracks lined with cots)
doctors assessed each man's
condition. As Pauline tells it,
before they got to her husband,
they examined his North
Carolina friend and quietly dis-
cussed where they were going
to amputate his legs. Then they
moved on to Ed and made the
same decision.
Before Ed could say any-
thing, his buddy yelled out,
insisting his legs not be ampu-
tated.
Required to wait for his
replacement, Ed was one of the
last "thawed out" survivors to
leave Greenland.
"I was almost a widow
before I was a wife," Pauline
said. "And when Ed finally
came home in November, it
was the first time he saw his 3-
week-old daughter."
A time to remember
Daniel O'Keefe, another sur-
vivor living in Sebring, who's'
now in ill health, was a 19-
year-old Merchant Marine
Helmsman on the Dorchester.
"It was the worst sea disas-
ter at that time," his son Dan
Jr. said. "Luckily Dad was able
to be interviewed and quoted
in Dan Kurtzman's recently
published book, 'No Greater
Glory: The Four Immortal
Chaplains and the Sinking of
the Dorchester in World War
II.' It's filled with remarkable
interviews and facts."
At their regular monthly
meeting at 7 p.m. Monday,
Feb. 14, American Legion Post
25 in Lake Placid will have a
special dedication commemo-
rating the four chaplains, all
the other souls who perished,
the survivors, and their res-
cuers. These were all just ordi-
nary young men forced to do
extraordinary things under
remarkable circumstances. As
they now age and eventually
pass on, it is hoped that their
stories will not die with them.

Bartenders bring customers back


TOFFIN9 IT

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


Tom Cruise,

eat your

heart out
For starters, I was lost
behind the bar at R.J. Gator's
this week. That's because I'm
an occasional cold beer on a
hot day drinker, who some-
times has a glass of wine with
dinner; the world of cocktails
was brand new to me.
What do I know about
Moscow Mules, Harvey
Wallbangers, or Ruptured
Ducks? Nothing.
How was I supposed to
know, for example, that tea is
about the only ingredient that's
not in a Long Island Iced Tea?
So never mind about the really
weird drinks, like (I'm not kid-
ding) Dirty Diapers which is
made with equal parts of
vodka, Amaretto, Southern
Comfort, Mideri, Chambord
Liqueur and orange juice. I
guess it got its name because
you need to wear a diaper to
drink it. I would anyway.
Thankfully drinking on the
job is absolutely forbidden at
R.J. Gator's bar.
On the other hand, having a
good time is absolutely
required.
Lead bartenders Angie
Oliveri and Ross Vickers kept
the fun going while doing the
serious stuff, like carding or
cutting off. They never
stopped working, but made it
look-easy t (usti e.- it i isn't .-
See CRUISE, page 14A


There's more to it
than just mixing a
few cocktails
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Bartenders
have to have an eagle's eye and
an elephant's memory. They
need to have sure hands and be
quick on their feet. A strong
back also is a must.
It helps to have a sense of
humor, a store of trivia, diplo-
matic skills and a sympathetic
ear.
Bartenders absolutely have
to be able to do several things at
once, and to do them on the run.
The job is more then pouring
drinks; it includes keeping
inventory, reconciling registers,
and remembering names.
Bartenders have to know
what's on special, and be able
to firmly cut someone off.
They need to know sanita-
tion codes, and be able to trou-
bleshoot fizzing kegs and leaky
faucets.
They also mop floors.
Good bartenders know the
difference between a Brazen
Huzzy and a Widow's Kiss, and
have hundreds of other concoc-
tions committed to memory.
Great bartenders putt on a show
when they make these concoc-
tions.
At R.J. Gator's Seagrill and
Bar, where many customers eat
at the bar, the bartenders also
have to know the menu, and
then run to the kitchen to get
the soup and the rolls.
The job has many rewards,
but the salary isn't one of them.
Like all servers in the food
industry, bartenders make just
$2.13 an hour. tips are what
make then li\ing In .-i'-. s
economy 15 percent is ,1 mini-'


mum figure, 20 percent is rec-
ommended. Benefits are rare.
R.J. Gator's lead bartenders,
Angie Oliveri and Ross
Vickers, are long time profes-
sionals who take pleasure and
pride in their work. With- their
years of experience Vickers
14 and Oliveri 21 both of
them know how to put on a
show, and' have a store of funny
stories and jokes.
When asked what the most
difficult part of the job was,
Vickers replied keeping up with
new drink recipes and their
names. Oliveri immediately
agreed and told of a case on
point.
She was working in the Keys
some years ago, breaking in a
rookie at a local bar there. A
customer came in and asked for
a Greyhound (grapefruit juice
and vodka).
"It's just down the road,"
Oliveri said the rookie said
helpfully, "they don't stop
here."
"I don't want to ride a
Greyhound," she said the cus-
tomer replied, "I want to drink
one."
Oliveri had to step in and
help the rookie out.
With plenty of bars to chose
from, it's the bartender who
draws the customer back. It is
they who create the friendly
atmosphere where people can
relax.
Last Monday night at R.J.
Gator's, Oliveri and Vickers
were in fine form. The bar bub-
bled with laughter, the mood
was laid back; the warmth a
relief from the freezing out-
doors. It was easy to see why
they loved their work.

brated its one year anniversary

Acupuncturist gets




right to the point


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
.Vews-Sun
AVON PARK Native son
Jason Trombley had nearly
completed his degree in com-
puter engineering when he dis-
covered he had lost interest in
that cutthroat industry.
Grabbing life by the horns,
he walked away and entered
massage therapy school instead.
He soon became interested in
eastern medical philosophy as
well.
After graduating from
Traviss Tech in Lakeland, and
becoming certified as a mas-
sage therapist, he entered a
masters level program in
acupuncture at the East/West
College of Natural Medicine in
Sarasota, graduating in May of
2004. He is licensed by the state
of Florida as an acupuncturist
and has recently opened a prac-
tice in Avon Park.
Eastern medicine treats the
body holistically.
All too often people tend to
treat symptoms rather then the
underlying causes; taking
aspirin to mask the pain of a
headache rather theh finding
out what might be causing it,
for example.


"We treat everything,"
Trombley explained recently.
"We focus on the chief com-
plaint, but everything gets bet-
ter."
Acupuncture is based on the
concepts of harmony and bal-
ance, especially between yin
and yang. Energy, called qi,
travels through the body.
Should an imbalance occur, the
qi will stagnate, and it is this
stagnation which produces
pain.
Acupuncture is one method
eastern health caregivers use to
redress the balance and bring
the body back into harmony.
This is accomplished through
the use of fine needles which
are inserted at particular pres-
sure points and manipulated,
adjusting the flow of qi, which
restores the body's balance, and
allows the patient to heal.
Trombley will typically meet
with a patient for an initial con-
sultation, for which he charges
nothing. The purpose is to
define the problem and outline
a course of treatment. No two
people are the same, so no two
treatment plans are the same.
Once a course has been set


out, a patient may expect a first
session to last approximately an
hour to an hour and a half, and
subsequent sessions to be about
45 minutes long. Trombley
reports that far from being
uncomfortable, many patients
become so relaxed, they fall
asleep during treatment.
Acupuncture has proven to
be very helpful for those indi-
viduals committed to losing
weight or quitting smoking.
Trombley strongly feels the
best medicine is an integration
of modem western science and
the thousand years old eastern
philosophies.
"I can boost the immune sys-
tem," he said, "and help the
body to heal more quickly,
shortening the course of an ill-
ness."
Trombley also has a raw
herbal pharmacy certified by
the Food and Drug
Administration. The herbal teas
and capsules enhance the
acupuncture treatments, and in
some cases can be used instead
of them.
For more information or to
make an appointment call 452-
0788.


LARRY LEVEY/News-Sun
Angie Oliveri, one of the head bartenders at R.J. Gator's in Sebring, gives 'News-Sun' reporter
Christopher Tuffley the low-down on how to be a bartender.


CRUISE
Continued from 11A
I, on the other hand, mainly
washed glasses.
Before you laugh, this was
more complicated than you
might think.
For one thing there are three
sinks and all sorts of different
glasses, one of which is big
enough to seat a small cat (it's
used for super-sized frozen
margaritas only two to a cus-
tomer, thank you very much),
another of which is shaped like
a goldfish bowl and holds 32
ounces.
At one point I asked Oliveri
how can people drink some of
these large cocktails or several
cocktails, and still walk away
under their own power. "You'd
be surprised," she said, "most
people are seasoned."
Before I get back to my
mastery of washing, I did have
a Tom Cruise moment thanks
to Vickers,,J(Quise portrayed a
flashy bartender who used a lot
of flare spinning bottles in the
movie "Cocktails.") From


across the bar, Vickers started
to throw the goldfish bowl
glasses to me (actually, they're
made out of plastic, but it was
still cool), and best of all, I
didn't drop a single one. It was
definitely a "ta dah" moment.
Back to washing. With a
towel tucked into my belt, just
like a pro, I would take two
glasses at a time and thrust
them onto to spinning brushes
in a sink filled with soapy hot
water. Then I would rinse them
in the second sink filled with
clean water, and then dip them
into the sink with sanitizer.
Then they were put away. This
was the hard part, because
some of the glasses look
almost alike, and red wine
glasses are kept separate from
white wine glasses, which have
to be chilled. It meant I slowed
the pace, which normally is
only just short of frantic.
Oliveri said it was humming
for a Monday night, but actual-
ly kind of slow. Thank good-
ness. I couldn't have kept up if
it had been any busier. There
was always something to do.
I also learned R.J. Gator's


customers have great senses of
humor.
For one brief moment,
Oliveri and Vickers put me to
the test and said they had to
leave me alone behind the bar.
It was at this point when
everyone was aware of my
highly amateur standing. No
sooner was I playing without a
net then the calls started to
come in.
"I'd like a Kamikaze," one
wag said.
"I'll take a Fuzzy Navel,"
chimed in another.
"Make mine Long Island
Iced Tea," called out a third.
"A perfect martini with an
olive," the fourth jokester
cried. But I fooled her, and got
half the order right. I handed
her the olive. For the drink she
had to wait.

Next week Christopher
Tuffley defies gravity working
as a roofer for Stewart
Construction. Any business

In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the ?%eA'
Department of the Navy (DON) has completed a Draft Environmental Impact TES
Statement (DEIS) for the above-referenced project. The DEISwas prepared to
evaluate the potential environmental consequences of utilizing Avon Park Air Force
Range (APAFR), Florida, as a location for high-explosive and inert/practice air-to-ground ordnance
training for East Coast carrier-based strike/fighter aviation,squadrons. Squadrons would use APAFR in
combination with other available air-to-ground range assets to meet the operational requirements of its
Fleet Readiness Training Program (FRTP). FRTP air-to-ground training will encompass operations
associated with DON integrated and sustainment level training exercises and combat certification.

The DEIS focuses on air-to-ground training alternatives within APAFR. These alternatives encompass
varying mixtures of ordnance types among different impact areas within APAFR.

The DEIS has been distributed to various Federal, state and local agencies, as well as other interested
individuals and organizations. In addition, copies of the DEIS have been distributed to the following

Bronson announces new number one complaint


Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has released the list of top 10 ccm-
plaints of 2004 and "Do Not Call List"
complaints dropped to second place for the
first time in years. The department also
obtained an increase in consumer refunds
over last year even though the number of
complaints was down.
In 2004, the number one complaint
among industries regulated by the depart-
ment involved travel and vacation plans.
There were 4,312 complaints lodged, an
increase of about 45 percent over the previ-
ous year. Telemarketing fell to second place
with 3,673 consumer complaints in 2004.
The Department's Division of Consumer
Services was able to recover $2,784,919 in
refunds and services for consumers this
past year. That is more than a half-million-
dollar.increase'.over 2003 despite the fact
that the total rtimber of complaints coming


into the division dropped. In 2003, the
Division of Consumer Services received
31,274 complaints. That compares with
23,718 in 2004.
The Department's Division of Consumer
Services serves as the clearinghouse for
consumer complaints in Florida. In addi-
tion, it regulates nearly a dozen industries.
The division can take a number of actions
against businesses it regulates, including
levying penalties, revoking registrations or
shutting down a business altogether. The
division also tries to mediate complaints for
consumers against industries that are not
regulated by the department. While the
division doesn't have jurisdiction over non-
regulated industries, the division contacts
businesses on behalf of consumers in an
effort to resolve their disputes.
Piice-gouging complaints ranked third
with 3,023 received. Price-gouging wasn't.
even in the top 10 in 2003, the change


brought about by the state of emergency
declared during four hurricanes Florida suf-
fered in 2004. Rounding out the top 10 list
are: motor vehicle repair with 2,212 com-
plaints; credit/banking with 1,019 com-
plaints; communications with 1,010 com-
plaints; business opportunities/franchises
with 977 complaints; health studios with
684 complaints; telemarketers (not involv-
ing the "Do Not Call List") with 672 com-
plaints; and construction with 631 com-
plaints.
Bronson urged consumers to call the
Department's Consumer Hotline at 1-800-
HELPFLA (1-800-435-7352) to find out
the complaint history of a company and any
other pertinent information prior to signing
any contracts or making a purchase.
Consumers can also file complaints online
through thel depaiftfRit g Web site at'
www.800helpfla.com. c -

John Roalch, shop instructor at Lake Placid High School, and Doug Waltz of Walz & Co. check out the
'Little House of Hope' being built by the shop class in Lake Placid. Each of the county's three high
schools are building a house to be raffled off as a fund-raiser for the American Cancer Society.


Students swinging hammers for a cure


Special to the News-Sun
Thanks to the generous sup-
port of Walz & Co., Scosta
Supply Corp. and Highlands
Independent Bank, the shop
classes of all three high schools
in Highlands County have been
swinging hammers non-stop to
build "Little Houses of Hope."
If you made it to either the
Sebring or Lake Placid
Christmas parades you may
have caught a glimpse of one of
these miniature dream houses
for children.
This is a fund-raiser for the
American Cancer Society and
has been a dream of Christie
Spiegel's. Without the sponsors
and dedicated shop teachers -
Joe Marquart, John Roalch and
Ed Brown and a lot of great
students this project would not
be happening.
This project began in August
when the shop classes were
delivered a set of blue prints
and the materials needed to
build the homes. The rest has
been up to the individual
schools.
"These schools have truly
taken pride in putting together
the Little Houses," Spiegel
said. "They have taken the time
to put their personalized touch


to their houses, including paint-
ing and flower boxes and they
are all three are fabulous."
It is really neat to see the
excitement that these students
have shown, knowing that two
of these houses will be raffled
off and the third house will be
placed in a children's cancer
center for their enjoyment.
Tickets for the raffle are $10
and will be available at the
Highlands County Fair, Feb.
11-19. Two of the three houses
will be there for the public's


viewing pleasure.
Tickets will continue to be
sold at the following Relays:
Lake Placid, Feb. 25-26, at
Lake Placid High School
Football Field,
Sebring, March 4-5, at
Firemen's Field, and
Avon Park, March 11-12,
at South Florida Community
College's baseball field.
The winning tickets will be
drawn the week following the
last relay and the winners will
be notified.

Survivor


pledges to


help others

By CHRISTIE SPIEGEL
Special to the News-Sun
In January 2003, my husband
and I were thrilled that we were
expecting a second child.
A first appointment at my
obstetrician/gynecologist con-
firmed the baby was on the way
and a second appointment was
set for a sonogram to determine
if I was going to have two
babies rather than one!
On the day of the appoint-
ment my husband and I were
excited and nervous to find out
the results of the sonogram. Our
excitement quickly turned to
shock and fear when we were
told the results of the Pap test
taken on my first exam were not
good.
Rather than having twins we
were suddenly faced with the
reality that what we had was
one baby and cervical cancer.
The doctor painted a grim
picture that the possibility of
carrying our baby to full term
could jeopardize my own sur-
vival. My husband and I were
numb when we left the office.
We went home and cried.
Later that day we decided we
needed to visit our families to
share the devastating news and
find some support. Sharing this
with our parents and watching
everyone break down had to
have been the darkest point in
our lives.
During the ensuring days I
experienced a full gamut of
emotions: fear, anger, uncer-
tainty, hurt, resentment and
then, finally, acceptance.
Once I accepted that I had
been given this unwanted situa-
tion and it wasn't going to go
away, I became determined to
do everything that could be
done to save my baby and
myself. I found a cancer spe-
cialist in Fort Myers who had
an excellent reputation for help-
ing women with cervical can-
cer. He was able to share the
-news we .x. icc lnolinl foir.
He beie\'ed \\lth a little,

treatment we could keep things
under control and continue to
have our baby, understanding
that immediate treatment would
be needed after the baby was
born. He, in turn, referred me to
an OB/GYN in Lakeland who
specializes in high risk preg-
nancies.
Working in tandem these two
treated and monitored me and
my baby during the remainder
of my pregnancy.
By the grace of God and
these doctors Lauren Elizabeth
was born Oct. 22, 2004. She
was perfect and healthy and I
was then able to complete the
treatment for my cervical can-
cer.
Tests show that today I am
free of cancer and for that I am
truly thankful and relieved.
When I reflect on the past
two years and what it has meant
to be diagnosed with cancer I
realize the experience has
changed my life in dramatic
ways.
I will never take the blessings
Sof life for granted and I will


always know how important it'
is to have support to get through
an experience with cancer.
For these reasons I have
become an active and serving
member of the American
Cancer Society. I was chosen as
one of the honorary chairs for
this year's Sebring Relay for
Life for the Highlands Unit.
This means so much to me and
it is my goal to help others in
Highlands County, mwho are
faced with cancer, find the help
and resources offered by the
ACS.
I would like to invite you to
join family and friends in this
year's Relay. This is your
opportunity to represent the
hope that those lost to cancer
will never be forgotten, that
those who face cancer will be
supported and that one day can-
cer will be eliminated.

Greed, monopoly
are the problem
Editor:
Mr. Lewis claims the
"enemy" of our democratic
society is socialism. This is
remarkable since our society
has thrived and the middle
class exploded after the '30s.
The concept that workers
should earn a "piece of the pie"
in forms of livable wages, ben-
efits (health care/pension) and
assurance of continuity of
employment, I thought, were
wholesome ideas. This "social-
istic" policy resulted in three
successive generations of
working people better off and a
period of great prosperity.
The existential philosophy
60 years ago was quite primi-
tive and physical. It was com-
parable to a child who saw only
what was in front of him, hav-
ing no sense of what was
behind him. That simplistic
philosophy no longer exists,
having evolved into a more
complex notion, but not fas-
cism.
The theme of my article was
the diminution of the middle
class. It related to disappear-
ance of the American Dream,
whereby citizens become what-
ever they want to be. It worked
nearly 200 years, but is now
withering because employees
are subjected to subservient
labor. The skilled jobs are out-
sourced offshore and skilled
workers are left with service
jobs.
It was not socialism that
caused Congress to favor mega
corporations with billions of
tax dollars, while millions of
workers were laid off, adding
huge profits and bonuses to
CEOs; nor Congress exempting

( t t 'It'


mega corporations from honor-
ing obligations for pensions,
etc., while leaving millions of
people more destitute than
ever; nor CEOs fleecing $7 tril-
lion from the gross national
product in 2001. That is fas-
cism!
Socialism may be the enemy
of fascism, but fascism is the
enemy of democracy. One of its
tenets is to keep the worker
down, dependent, similar to
that of the plantation owner.
Please recall Ayn Rand's basic
tenet: "The virtue of selfishness
and the evil of altruism." If you
give a person bread, but no
wheat to plant; or give him a
fish but not teach him to fish,
this is what altruism too often
has become in this country. The
virtue of selfishness is that a
selfish person will not "burn
his bridges," he will look after
those who can help him.
No, socialism is not the
enemy; greed and monopoly
are. They are the antithesis of
democracy and capitalism; and
tragically, they are winning.
Those millions of skilled jobs
outsourced off shore make peo-
ple dependent, poverty wages
make people 'dependent.
American people want to work;
they want to support their fam-
ilies, be part of the Ameiican
Dream. Restore that philoso-
phy.

agreed, and we stayed friends.

No freedom, no need for government


Dearly beloved, we
are gathered here to
today to witness a
blessed union. Today the
Iraqi people take their
formal vows of matrimo-
ny with a long awaited ,
bride, freedom. Today
they are voting for the
first time.
Just as married cou- POLIT
ples are often reminded NOTE
of their own vows when
attending a wedding, WE
today offers Americans a
special opportunity to
renew our own commitment to the
animating force behind our grand
democratic experiment. It is freedom
that gives our government purpose
and validity.
As love is to marriage, freedom is
to government. Without the one,
there is no purpose for the other. And
when we lose sight of that which illu-
minates each institution, the end of
the affair is afoot.
We did have a love affair with
freedom, didn't we? Is there any bet-
ter way to describe the ride of Paul
Revere? The bravery it took to sign
names to the treasonous Declaration
of Independence? The grit of Lincoln
as he consummated our commitment
to true freedom? The heroism of our
soldiers who fight for freedom on
any battlefield, in any corner of the
world?
The substance of our history books
would make for the stuff of a grand
romance novel.
Love and freedom can be intoxi-
cating. They make you bold. They
make you dream. They make you
believe anything is possible, so long
as you remain true to them.
The question we must answer
today is ... do we still love freedom?
Or more to the point ... do we love it
enough to champion it?
Government serves no purpose if it
does not serve the purposes of free-
dom. There can and should be no
sovereignty over citizens, no pre-
sumption of authority, no justifica-
tion for war, no collection of taxes,
and no provision of social services
without freedom. Therefore it is
entirely proper for America to lead
the world more and more towards
freedom and democracy. Those gov-
ernments that don't protect freedom
should not be long for this world.
I fear that many in our nation have
lost sight of just how precious free-'
dom is. When freedom ceases to be
precious, it ceases to be worth fight-
ing for. It is not enough to value it

only within our borders.
Perhaps these statistics are
not mere coincidence: Just a
little more than half of
Americans exercise their
right to vote in an average
election. Just a little more
than half approve of our
efforts to promote freedom
in the Middle East. And just
a little more than half of
marriages avoid divorce.
These are rough compar-
isons, but they are also
telling barometers of our
national values.


We must not let these slim m
ties deteriorate further.
I need not ask if there are any
gathered who object to this 1
between the Iraqi people and
dom. To those who doubt
America should help, or tha
Iraqis are capable of democrat
offer this bit of hope.
As our own marriage with free
showed, the return from the h(
moon coincides with the onset
reality. Nevertheless we should
heart, because so long as love
freedom remain, hope prevails.
Our first Articles of Confeder
failed. We were bankrupt.
Capitol was burned in 1812.
states made war on each other-
the name of preserving slaver
less!
By contrast, the Iraqi people
moved closer to a genuine dem
cy in two years than we did in i
decades.
Let us also remember that it
the French who presided ovel
wedding. It was their fleet that
tected us as we consummated
vows. In fairness, they cared
about freeing Americans than
did about killing Britons. So for
utilitarians who are uninspired
appeals to freedom, remember
by freeing Iraqis we are also ti
the battle to the terrorists, inste;
the other way around.
That reminds us that there are
those not here gathered who obje
this union. They are absent
from this wedding because
they remain outside, in the
shadows, plotting to kill
both the bride and the
groom. By killing Iraqis,
these terrorists also aim to
kill the hope for freedom
in the Middle East. They
must not succeed. This
young marriage has to be
nurtured while it takes
hold.

Young love can be the most inspir-
ing kind, which the newlyweds
among us prove.
Ukraine, we are' inspired by your
blossoming love of freedom. We are
not surprised that the same nation
that- rallied in the freezing public
square until a fraudulent election was
righted has been a stalwart ally in
Iraq. We helped you throw off your
communist shackles, and the vigor
with which you cling to your new-
found love should remind us that the
democratic progression we champion
is just.
Poland. Albania. Georgia.
Lithuania. El Salvador. We were
there for all of your weddings, too.
Thank you for supporting the Iraqis
at theirs.
We are in the company of middle-
aged couples, too. Thank you, Japan.
There was a time when doubters said
you could never be a free and demo-
cratic society. You obliterated that
bigotry and encourage the Iraqi peo-
ple to do the same.
Let us embrace the wholesome
sort of intoxicating freedom. Not the
sort of intoxicating haze that dulls the
senses and breeds infidelity, but the
sort of euphoric zeal that has over-
thrown tyrants in every corner of the
world for more than two centuries.
This is a message of hope.
America has exercised freedom
longer and better than any other
nation in the world. On this special
day, let us remember that we have no
more right to live free than any other
people in this world. They yearn to
breathe free every bit as much as
Americans. The moment we neglect
that fundamental human endeavor is
the moment our American govern-
ment has ceased to serve its purpose.
Today of all days, we renew our
love and freedom and leave this
sacred ceremony further convicted
that furthering the cause of freedom
is the highest calling of a sovereign
nation.

15 Years Ago
Jan. 31, 1990: Four
Sebring wrestlers were
ranked in the state top 5 in
their weight classes in the
FACA's mid-season report.
Tyrone Ellis (189 pounds)
and Elbert Weaver (heavy-
weight) were ranked sec-
ond while Andy Costello
(145 pounds) was third and
Brad Ohrt (220 pounds)
was fourth.


20 Years Ago
Jan. 29, 1985: Zachary
Morris grabbed an offen-
sive rebound and put home
a layup with two seconds
left in the game to lift Fort
Meade to a 69-67 win over
Lake Placid in a game that
had 26 lead changes and 12

of Sebring approaches, more information
filters in about who may, and who may not
be participating.
For instance, it appears that Rinaldo
Capello may not be part of the Champion
driver team at the 12 Hours after all.
Officials at Audi UK have announced that
Alan McNish will be joining J.J. Lehto,
Marco Werner, Frank Biela, Emanuelle
Pirro and Tom Kristensen.
What remains to be determined is what
the line-ups will actually be for each cars
The McNish factor comes into play as
Audi's British and North American
importers join forces for both Sebring and
the Le Mans 24 hour events.
Another entry for the Sebring line-up is
said to be a new LMP2 Lola for
Chamberlain-Synergy. The car actually
made its debut at the 12 Hours last year,
with the TVRs.
Reportedly, Sebring will be the only
American Le Mans Series race for that car,
which will head back to Europe after the 12

Streaks slam



Raiders for



11th straight

By SCOT7 DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING So far, so perfect in 2005 for the
Blue Streaks.
Sebring last lost on Dec. 27, a one-point setback
against Bradenton Bayshore in the first round of a
tournament in Sarasota, and Friday night's 71-37
thrashing of the Riverdale Raiders made it 11 in a
row for coach Princeton Harris' troops, a trend Harris
would obviously like to see continue.
"(We're) pretty hot," he said. "Hope we don't cool
off any time soon."
Sebring Friday's game against the Raiders
S quickly turned into more of a glorified
S scrimmage than anything else. The
Riverdale Sebring starters played just 1 1/2 quar-
7 ters and all but one Blue Streak player
a3 scored as Harris used the time to work
Up Next on some fine tuning for his team in
Streaks at anticipation of Tuesday's District 14-
Lehigh Tues. 4A match at Lehigh with not only the
11-game overall streak on the line, but
also a 6-0 mark in the district.
"Just use these times when you have games like
this to work on what you're going to need down the
road, and that's what we did," Harris said.
"We want to be able to change some things up, and
this is a time when you can work on it, when you've
got a game and you open it up. We were able to press,
go man-to-man, work on a zone defense, all of it."
Harris credits the Streaks' streak to a new offense
installed three or four weeks ago that has improved
the ball-handling and passing.
"That's part of it, being able to move around, catch
them out of place on defense and get a quick pass and
an easy basket, then come back and put some pres-
sure on them," Harris said.

Avon Park's Patrick Menzies heads to the rim on a dunk Friday
night against Frostproof.


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK Against a
Frostproof team with only
seven players on the roster,
the Red Devils could have
just relied on superior depth
and attrition.
Instead, Avon Park sank
eight 3-pointers, controlled
the boards, and limited the
visiting Bulldogs to just two
points in the second quarter
en route to a 59-36 blowout.
"They've got a good bas-
ketball team," Frostproof
head coach Gilberto Castillo
said after the Bulldogs (4-14,
1-7 District 10-3A) dropped
their tenth straight. "We're
just struggling in all areas
right now, and when you're
struggling and you play a
good basketball team, things


are compounded."

better games, because I think
we're improving on all
aspects," Avon Park head

5 is enough

for DeSoto

vs. Dragons
BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun Correspondent
LAKE PLACID If it
seemed like the same five
DeSoto Bulldogs were doing
all the scoring against the
Green Dragons Friday night,
it's probably because, well,
they were.
Due to grade and conduct
problems, DeSoto (7-12) was
forced to play with a reduced
roster, leaving only five players
eligible against Lake Placid.
They didn't need very many
more as the Bulldogs ran away
with a 51-37 win.
"This has been a unique year
at DeSoto County high school,"
said head coach Tom O'Ness.
"It's been a combination of
guys not wanting to do what we
want them' to do, guys losing
eligibility, so it's been a combi-
nation of things. But that's not
really important. What's impor-
tant is we have five guys who
are playing together as a team
and playing as hard as they can
play so I'm really
happy with the DeSoto
five we have.
"I just finished 5
telling our guys Lake Pladd
that this is as big
of win as I've
ever had in Up Next
DeSoto County Dragons host
and we've won Avon Park on
district champi- Tuesday
onships and been
in two district finals, so we've
had some good teams. But for
those guys to execute the way
they did and with everything
that's against them, it's just a
big win for us."
Shelton Shine led his team
with' 19 points seven of
them coming off of free throws
and ripped down eight
rebounds. Not close behind was
Jarrod Allen with nine points,
three of them coming from
behind the 3-point arc.
Lake Placid (12-7), however,
only shot 4-of-23 from the 3-
point line on the night.
Shine's first two came after
an Eddie Peifer 3-pointer start-
ed the game for Lake Placid.
Bulldog teammate Darren
Blackmon later followed with a
3-ball of his own to even the
score 5-5.
The effect of the Green
Dragons' 2-3 zone started' to
wear off toward the end of the
first period, however, and a
Shanon Shine 3-pointer gave
DeSoto a 16-12 lead after one
quarter.
In that period, Lake Placid's

DeSOTO
Continued from 1B
12 rebounds, which was only
two less than DeSoto's team
total. But rebounds didn't seem
to become a factor and the
Bulldogs' great ball movement
provided a 22-18 cushion head-
ing into the break.
That's when fatigue
should've set in for the visitors,
but apparently it never did as
DeSoto scored seven more
points in the second half than it
did in the first. The final nine
points all came on free throws.
"We had to control tempo,"
O'Ness said. "We can't run up
and down. We've got to be able
to get rests in between points
during the game and we're
doing that on both ends of the
floor. I thought tonight we con-
trolled the tempo and that's
what allowed us to win. We
have to find times where we
can rest."
Lake Placid's Jovanni Shuler
did all he could to bounce his
team back late, hitting two 3-
pointers in a row with two min-
utes remaining to make it 42-
35. But it never became rele-
vant as the Dragons couldn't
get any closer.
"I'm really pleased with the
way we executed the game
plan," O'Ness said. "We really
had a limited amount of time to
work on this because we've
been stuck without guys now
for about a week, so we've had
a couple of practices and we've
had one other game and done
some things, but this is the first
night where we really executed
well."


SCQTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Sebring's Kyle Hoffner heads into the lane Friday night against
Riverdale.


SLAM
Continued from 1B
The Streaks, who are 16-4
overall, caught the hapless
Raiders out of position from the
opening tip Friday, running out
to a 12-1 lead behind six of
Kevin Dixon's 10 points and
one rim-rattling dunk by
Weston Brooks on an alley-oop
pass from Greg Perry.
Riverdale assistant coach
Shayne Morin said the Raiders
are building for the future,
which explains their 2-15 over-
all record.
"We've got a group of sen-
iors and a group of young guys,
and there's not a lot of down-
grade between the two groups,"


he said. "The young group
should be good. All of our big
men are coming back."
The Sebring bench expanded
Sebring's 21-5 lead at the first
stop to 34-12 at halftime with
six different players scoring in
the second quarter.
Brooks, who finished with
18 points, and Joseph Aaron put
an early exclamation point on
the night for Sebring with back-
to-back dunks midway through
third quarter. Brooks fed Aaron
off a steal for his dunk, and then
followed up with a windmill
slam of his own a few seconds
later to make it 42-15.
Brooks had five dunks all
in the second quarter in
Sebring's 69-27 win at
Riverdale on Jan. 11.

Special to the News-Sun
Highlands Independent Bank
maintained its tie for the league
lead with a 12-4 win over the
Silent Salesmen in Thursday's
Sebring Seniors Softball
League game at Avon Park's
Durrah Martin Complex.
The Bankers brought some
heavy hitters to the plate, but
the Salesman fielding errors
and weak hitting (12 hits in 37
at bats) aided the Bankers as
much as their own prowess.
Jim Bushby (2 for 3) led the
Salesmen's offense and Mary
Knutilla hit a double.
For the Bank, Bob Weiss and
Paul DuBrule paced the attack
with homers.
At DeSota Field, Miller
Heating also stayed tied for the
league lead after a battle royale


DRIVER
Continued from 1B
three of them driving the single
car at the test session, the other
three present for the formal
announcement.
On the heels of their just-
completed shakedown at
Sebring International on
Monday, officials at ACEMCO
Motorsports have announced
that Ralf Kelleners will partner
with full-time drivers Terry
Borcheller and Johnny
Mowlem in their Saleen S7-R
GT1 racer at Sebring.
The team took the one-day
test after spending the winter
months rebuilding the car. The
team will stay in Florida to con-
tinue the development of the
car at the ALMS Wheels Down
test session starting Monday.
Kelleners, from Diisseldorf,
Germany, raced with Risi
Ferrari in the American Le
Mans Series GT category in
2003-04.
"I am looking forward to
driving in the GTI class with
the increased power and down-
force it will give me a different
perspective on Sebring. I have
raced with Terry and Johnny a
few times before," he said. "I
am looking forward to racing
with the team and going up
against the increased competi-
tion in GT1 at Sebring in
March."
Jeff Giangrande, ACEMCO
Motorsports team owner, said


with the feisty Buttonwood Bay
Rebels.
The Heaters finally prevailed
with a 13-12 victory with
Howard Camay's 4-for-4 hit-
ting leading the victors'
offense.
For the Rebels, manager Stan
Turl had five hits including two
doubles, Jerry Mattis and Tony
Caristo chipped in with four
hits each and Moose Morrisette
and Diz Jones added three hits
each.
At Lincoln Heights Field, the
Yanks squeezed by Discount
Aluminum, 8-5. Larry Ambuel
and Jim Longman were 3 for 3
for the Yanks. Contributing two
hits each were Serg Perieto,
Doran Quigg, Bill Wilkes and
Bob Schroeder.


Kelleners would be a good
match, noting their experience
with him at Le Mans in 2003.
Meanwhile, Larbre will field
a Ferrari 550 at this year's
March classic and it has been
reported that Fabrizio Gollin
will be racing the Care Racing-
supplied Ferrari alongside
Sebastien Bourdais and Tiago
Monteiro.
Paolo Ruberti already been
confirmed as one of the
Graham Nash Motorsports
drivers. It's said he will share
the Saleen with. Rick
Sutherland, the LMP2 class
winner in 2004. The former
Intersport man has signed for
the team at Sebring, as well as
Le Mans and the LMES.
Spyker already has
announced that they have two
Spyder Rs at Sebring. Now,
team manager Hans van Rennes
has announced the driver for
one Spyder will be Tom
Coronel with two as-yet unan-
nounced co-drivers. The second
car will have two Dutch drivers
at the wheel Peter van
Merkenstein, Frans
Muensterhuis with a third to be
announced.
The last time a Spyker raced
at Sebring was back in 2003.
March will see the first race for
open-topped GT cars in the
modem era.
Officials have continuously
repeated that there will be
"many big announcements,"
next week at the ALMS test at
the Raceway.


I'm glad I don't have a
horse in this race.
I've never really had a
strong allegiance to an NFL
team, save for a Lions phase
now and again in the weeks
leading up the inevitable disil-
lusionment. But my friends
have their teams, and one of
them is psyched for the Super
Bowl.
Alan, a Philadelphia native,
has waited a long time for this.
He was 8 in 1980, and there-
fore has only vague memories
of the last time the Eagles
made the Super Bowl. His
frustration since reached a
boiling point in last year's
NFC Championship game,
when the Panthers took advan-
tage of more drops than a cell
phone in the mountains of
Eastern Kentucky, where he
currently lives.
I watched that game at his
place, and I recall Alan threw a
few household items himself,
none of which were caught by
the Eagles receivers, either. At
least he didn't have the cash
riding on it that he did in 2003,
when the Bucs provided a
sorry sendoff for. Veterans
Stadium, not to mention my
friend's disposable income for
the next few weeks.


TIME OUT

Chuck Myron

My most vivid memory of
the AFC Championship last
year, which followed the NFC
game, was of Alan on the
phone with friends and family,
trying to make sense of an
unthinkable third straight
defeat at the threshold of the
Super Bowl.
This year, he remarked that
one of the joys of having the
Eagles win on Championship
Sunday was that he could actu-
ally enjoy the AFC Title Game
this year.
The same could not bp said
for another of my friends, who
has a similar devotion to the
cross-state Steelers (though he,
too, is a Philly native, and now
works in D.C. Don't ask me to
explain.) Monday, I got this e-


DEVILS
Continued from 1B
Avon Park took control from the start, as Karl
Comadore scored nine of his game-high 19 in-the
first quarter, and then hit two of his three treys in
the second quarter as the Red Devils elevated
their games.
"He played really hard tonight. He really
showed his athleticism," Zwayer said of
Comadore. "He was all over the place, getting
steals, getting rebounds, guarding, getting layups,
shooting the ball really well. I thought he had an
excellent game tonight."
Luis Lebron joined him in the barrage from
behind the arc, scoring all of his nine points on a
trio of 3-pointers. Yet Zwayer barely noticed the
assault because the rest of Avon Park's game was
functioning just as well.
"It was all in flow of the game. It didn't really
stick out to me," he said. "I thought they did a
good job, mixing it up, getting inside shots and
outside shots. The 3's didn't stick out as much
they would maybe in another game, where that's
all you get is 3-point shots. I thought they did a
good job playing together and moving the ball."
The value of inside play became apparent in
the second half. After Frostproof outscored the
Devils 15-9 and outrebounded them 11-6 in the
third quarter, Avon Park re-established its earlier
dominance of the boards in the fourth quarter by
a 10-7 margin that translated into a 19-10 advan-
tage on the scoreboard.
. "They used their size inside," Castillo said.
"Patrick (Menzies), he's tough."
"I think Pat and David (Alverez) and Gerrard
(Coleman), they all came out and really rebound-
ed real well for us," Zwayer said. "I thought our
guards did a good job of boxing out and getting
the loose rebound. I thought we had a team effort


TESTING
Continued from 1B
area, which includes the
Hairpin and Turns 3-5. Cost is
$10 per day with no overnight
camping allowed. Gates will be
open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30
p.m. each day.
The session was organized
as a way to give teams a chance
to get some laps in at the 3.7-
mile circuit before Race week
without bending their budgets.
"This test has been organ-
ized in our continuing efforts to
make participation in the
ALMS more affordable," said
Tim Mayer, chief operation
officer of IMSA, sanctioning
body for the series. "The test-
ing fees are discounted highly
from Sebring's normal winter
testing rates and provide teams
the perfect opportunity to test
and prepare for the upcoming
season."
The Mobil 1 12 Hours of
Sebring is the opening race of
the ALMS season.
Mayer said he expects a
good turnout at the testing,
including the possibility of
some European teams coming
over early to get a head start.

"The bubble has burst. Life
is grey and cold. Woe unto
those who face off against the
cool head of Brady and the
mad genius of his master. They
hit us everywhere we were
weak. And then they did it
again. Wind chill factor below
zero today."
Something tells me the
Patriots may leave more than
one of my friend's hopes out in
the cold. Alan himself admitted
that, allegiance aside, he
believes New England will
win, and given the fact he'd be
7-1 in the playoffs so far this
year if he were betting, he's
probably right.
At least he'll get to have
fresh memories of the Eagles
in the Super Bowl, and at least
I won't ever have to hate Tom
Brady for more than being bet-
ter looking than me. I root for
my friends, of course, but find
the NFL a lot more fun when
you don't have to miss a replay
because you're in prayer.
After all, it's important to
remember even God can't help
the Lions.

on the glass tonight, and that's nice to see as a
coach, especially a defensive coach."
Zwayer pointed to defense as the catalyst for
his team's continued improvement, as well as
team unity.
"Especially as of late, they're really starting to
pull together, and believe in each other," he said.
"I think there's a big difference between now and
early in the year."

Attitude, talent earn Sebring's


Cooley scholarship to SFCC


Bi ( OTI D)RI SSI I
Slprts Editor
SEBRING There's some-
thing to be said for playing with
a smile on y)our lace.
In the case of Schring senior
Natalie Cooley, her positive on-
court attitude and energy turned
out to be one of the deciding
factors in her landing a volley-
ball scholarship to South
Florida Community College.
"Just watching her on the
court, she's always got a smile
on her face and she's always
having .a good time," SFCC
coach Kim Crawford said of
Cooley after signing her on
Friday. "She's a good leader
and she's also pretty dominat-
ing."
The attitude that Crawford is
hoping Cooley brings to her
Panthers this fall was also a big
part of her success with the
Blue Streaks and should help
her make the big step to the
next level, according to Sebring
coach Venessa Sinness.
"Her energy level is a big
thing that's going to help her,"
Sinness said. "She always
seems to carry the team when it
comes to energy. She's got a lot
of energy and a lot of determi-
nation, and I think that if she
works really hard she'll do all
right. She's always up for a
challenge."
Cooley was. one of the
Streaks' top players at the net
this past season, finishing sec-
ond on the team with 114 kills,
but first in scoring efficiency.
"When we set her the ball,
we wanted her to get a kill,"
Sinness said. "She hits the ball
hard all the time."
Cooley added 18 blocks, 88
digs, 38 aces and a 90 percent
success rate on her serves to her
senior season's resume as a
middle hitter for Sebring, but
Crawford said she'll have to
adjust to a new position at the
college level.
"She played middle, (but) I
don't really see her playing
middle for me. I see her playing

2004.


eithe outside or right side. I
think her defensive skills will
be an asset to the team. I think
that's what we were missing
last year on my team last year
was defense.
"Coach Sinness and I, I
think, are similar in the way we
coach fundamentals and I know
I'll be an attribute to Natalie in
teaching her a little more, to
gain more strength and court
smarts. My team knows her.
She's the fourth one I've signed
from Sebring. I see Natalie
being a very strong player for
me and that's exciting."
In addition to her skill and
attitude for the Streaks, playing
in Crawford's Club Crush pro-


gram in the offseason the last
two years also helped Cooley
land her spot with the Panthers.
S"I've signed three or four
kids in the Heartland area
because I've seen them grow
and develop with Club Crush,"
Crawford said.
"It's really nice to be able to
recruit from our home-town
area and get good players who
can compete in our confer-
ence."
Crawford said Cooley is the
second of six players she hopes
to add to the roster before next
season.
"I'm getting into some heavy
recruiting now. I've got a list of
kids that I'm talking to."
