Navy plans


live ordnance


bombing at


local range
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands County commis-
sioners got to hear about a plan by the U.S.
Navy to do live ordnance bombing on the Avon
Park Air Force Range.
They are concerned.
From 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, March 2, repre-
sentatives from the U.S. Navy will make a pres-
entation at the Sebring Civic Center to comment
on the environmental impact statement for
bombing on the range.
Another meeting is scheduled for 7-9 p.m.
Thursday, March 3, at the Avon Park
Community Center.
Essentially, the Navy plans to have aircraft
train by launching from a carrier at sea and fly-
ing inland to the target to drop guided and free-
falling bombs 'on targets. Commissioner
Barbara Stewart has asked that full copies of the
statement be provided and kept on file at the
Avon Park, Lake Placid and Sebring public
libraries for the public to view.
Concerns from commissioners and the public
include public safety, noise, environmental and
economic impacts.
Safety and noise
Commissioner Bob Bullard is concerned not
that the Navy and the range promise immediate
response to damage from ordnance that lands
outside the range, but that it can happen.
"Our smart bombs sometimes have senior
moments," said Ray Napper of Sebring, a
Vietnam War veteran. He worries about fighter
planes being taken out when birds get sucked
info the engine.
"If one goes down with live ordnance, look
out," he said.
Napper warned commissioners they would
hear more complaints about low flying aircraft
or bomb explosions rattling and breaking win-
dows, dishes or foundations. He wants to know
why the Navy wants to drop live ordnance when
the point is to hit a target, not make a large hole.
Hank Kowalski of Lake Placid trained on a
B-26 Marauder in Louisiana. The crew returned
from one mission to find the airfield vacant.

Area residents want routes around U.S. 27


Benton, Bullard:
Need better routes
around Lake Placid
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Getting from
one place to another quickly in
Highlands County has become
less a matter of convenience
and more a matter of safety.
To fix that, planners with the
Florida Department of
Transportation and engineers
with CH2M Hill, a firm from
Orlando, have spent the last 18
months talking with local offi-
cials and residents to add or
improve connecting roads


around the county. On Monday,
they presented the "wish list" of
the Long Range Transportation.
Plan to the Highlands County
Homeowners Association for
suggestions.
By current estimates, the
,highest priority projects would
cost the county and FDOT $195
million.
911 calls
Highlands County Sheriff
Susan Benton, who attended the
meeting, said her road deputies
have a problem traveling
between subdivisions that are
not directly connected. Driving
from Leisure Lakes to Placid
Lakes means using U.S. 27.
Law enforcement is mobile,


Benton said, and response times
get longer from having to cover
a lot of ground between calls.
She wants law enforcement,
fire and Emergency Medical
Services included on the trans-
portation advisory committees.
Development
Richard Oujevolk, who
worked for CH2M Hill and is
now a planning analysis admin-
istrator with FDOT, said Lake
Placid officials asked for only
four lanes through the town.
County Commissioner Bob
Bullard wants six lanes to make
room for extra traffic when
State Road 70 becomes four
lanes.
"One of the things we fought


for," he said, "was the six-lan-
ing of U.S. 27 to State Road 70
to connect to the (state's)
Strategic Intermodal System."
Debra Worley, Lake Placid
town councilwoman, didn't
remember that matter ever com-
ing before the town council.
She said now the town has
water and sewer facilities and
needs interconnected roads
because "we are developing
like crazy."
SPriority
R. Thomas Ross, senior proj-
ect manager with CH2M Hill,
said immediate plans include
six-laning U.S. 27 from U.S. 98
south to Landings Road and
from Avon Park north to- Polk


County, four-laning U.S. 98,
State Road 66. State Road 64,
County Road 17A, and
Hamnnock Road to Lakewood
Road.
Other roads would get
extended or improved:
Tangerine Drive and Groves
Road in Lake Placid, and
Lakewood Road, Schumacher
Road and Howey Road in
Sebring.
C.R. 635
The priorities also include
the much maligned County
Road 635 extension north to
Schumacher Road. When the
extension was defeated in 2001;
the Division of State Lands did
not want to trade high quality

City turns down


Habitat lot request


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK City coun-
cil members heard a plea from
Habitat for Humanity for the
donation of a couple of munici-
pally owned lots.
However, that decision was
put on hold at least until city
department heads are surveyed
to see if there might be another
use for them.
"We have a watershed man-
agement plan coming,"
Councilman George Hall said.
"I'd hate to'give away property
then have to go out and buy
some."
Mayor Tom Macklin sug-
gested that the properties might
be made into neighborhood
parks. However, the lots are too
small to make that a practical
application.
He then suggested they
might be put out to bid, to see
what they would bring on the
open market.
Even so, the price might well
fall short of the amount the city
has invested in them to date.
There is $10,795.85 in demo-
lition and' associated costs on


the lot at 127 N. Desoto Ave.
Another $8448.29 of taxpayers
dollars has sunk into a lot at
319 S. Verona Ave. iii acquisi-
tion costs.
"We are so upside down on
these," lamented Hall upon
hearing the report.
To add to the problems, the
South Verona Avenue lot is a
non-conforming lot that does
not meet the minimum lot size,
meaning it would require vari-
ances for lot width and set-
backs.
Breylinger said the lots could
be utilized to squeeze in houses
that could provide between
two- and four-bedroom homes.
"I hate to see vacant lots
when there could be houses
there," Breylinger said.
The latest Habitat for
Humanity project in Avon Park
is the so-called "women's
build" at 41 W. Circle St. When
completed, the 1,344-square-
foot structure is planned to be a
five-bedroom, two-bath home.
Officials reported there cur-
rently are 24 Habitat for
Humanity homes either built or
under construction.


County supports Sun 'N Lake

move to secure right of way


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County may yet get a north-
south bypass through Sun 'N
Lake of Sebring Improvement
District.
County commissioners have
lent support to Sun 'N Lake
efforts to secure right of way
for a future north-south route
through the district.
They have instructed County
Administrator Carl Cool to
meet with Mike Izzarone of
The Nature Conservancy to let
him know what the county
wants to do. If there is a way to
work a swap, the county would
support it.
Mick Grosh, Sun 'N Lake
director of development, told
commissioners Tuesday the dis-
trict could trade 100 unsold


lots, some of it with high quali-
ty scrub, to The Nature
Conservancy in exchange for
flat pine woods that is not scrub
jay or gopher tortoise habitat.
Such a trade would help pro-
vide northern access to the hos-
pital off of U.S. 27. It would
help the county set up a'corri-
dor road and help The Nature
Conservancy to set up a large
habitat area that can be man-
aged with controlled burns.
Commissioner Bob Bullard
liked the idea since it would
preserve habitat and still pro-
vide road needs.
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart liked the idea, too, but
wants to hear what municipal
councils in Avon Park, Lake
Placid and Sebring have to say
about the Long Range
Transportation Plan.


Junior Idol has last


open round Thursday


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The second
and final open session for the
Junior Idol will be on the Circle
in downtown Sebring Thursday
evening.
Put on by the Sebring
Downtown Merchants and
Professional Association, in all
20 different youngsters enter-
tained about 100 residents at
the opening round of the event
two weeks ago.
The contest is broken down
into two different age cate-
gories those aged 13-17 and
another for youngsters 12 and
under.
As a nod to their age, the
youngsters will be provided
back-up music from the Hardee
County-based Western Pleasure
karaoke company.
The company also has a tele-
vision monitor set up so the
hopefuls can read the words.
Nevertheless, the renditions of
the songs generally are cut
short at about the two minute
mark.
There will be 10 youngsters
chosen Thursday to go on to the
finals, which will be Thursday,
March 3, during the monthly
Sunset on the Circle event.
They will be added to the 10
selected earlier this month to
provide a total of 20 youngsters
who will be whittled down to a
Junior Idol in each of the age
categories.
The event is based on last
year's Heartland Idol; which
drew hundreds of people to the
Circle to listen to vocal stylings
ranging from country to urban
and pop to gospel.
In fact, Heartland Idol win-
ner Nelly Guzman is one of the
judges for the junior event.
The initial entry fee is $10,
with a $5 re-entry fee for those
who tried during the first go
'round but didn't make it.
Members of the DMPA also
will be selling hot dogs, sno-
cones and drinks as part of the
event.


Registration is at Unwrap the
Party on 131 N. Ridgewood
Drive. Interested individuals
also may contact organizer
Diana Hirsch there by calling
386-4417.

Ultra cyclists to ride around .



12/24 hours next weekend N


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The Ultra
Cyclists are headed back to
Highlands County. This will be
the fourth year for the combina-
tion 12/24 hour event known as
BikeSebring and early indica-
tions are it might be the best to
date.
"The response has been
excellent," Mark Andrews said.
He has chaired the event since
its inception.
Whereas last year there were
five cyclists who had signed on
to use the BikeSebring as a
qualifier for the Race Across
America, so far this year there
are 22 hopefuls.
"Six of them are from outside
the country," he said.
There are two from
Germany, two from England
plus one each from Denmark
and Bavaria. They all registered
on the organization's Web site
www. bikesebring. org.
In order to compete in the
annual RAAM, a cyclist must
compete in a qualifying race
and must complete 425 miles in
24 hours.
The event is actually two
races in one. There is a 12 Hour
John Marino and the 24 Hour
RAAM qualifier. John Marino
was the founder of the Ultra
Marathon Cycling Association
and the Race Across America.
Riders in the Marino Race
earn points toward a national
competition much the same
as American Le Mans Series
drivers.
The event began as a piggy-
back to a bicycling weekend
staged by the Highlands
Peddlers the local bike club.


"We had some people contact
us about making it a RAAM
qualifier as well," Andrews
said.
There are separate rules and
competitors for each of the two
events. One of the major differ-
ences is that in the RAAM divi-
sion, the cyclists cannot draft.
Drafting is a method of rid-
ing where a cyclist gets up close
behind another to take advan-
tage of his slipstream. Andrews
said the technique is a real ener-
gy saver.
"If you get behind another
bike, you can save yourself
about 20 percent of your ener-
gy," he explained.
Andrews has recruited some
monitors to watch to see that
nobody bends the rules.
"Most of these guys won't
even take a chance, because
they know it means immediate
disqualification," he said.
In an effort to differentiate
between the two, one division
will receive double digit num-
bers while the other class will
have a three-digit tag.
The total number of cyclists
has climbed from about 60 par-
ticipants the first year to more
than 80 already registered with
two weeks left. Andrews said
that like most cycling events,
that number could climb by as
much as 30 percent depending
upon the weather.
That would mean the roster
could top 100. -
The weather has been getting
progressively better over the
Years. In fact, the first event
was a terrible trifecta of cold,
wind and rain a bicyclist's
three worst opponents. Current
prognostications show that the


weather this time out might
finally prove to be ideal.
"I just looked at a 10-day
forecast and they're showing a
high of 73 degrees under cloudy.
skies, which would be just per-
fect," Andrews said.
The event will begin on the
3.72-mile Sebring International
Raceway at 6:30 a.m. on
Saturday.
"They'll do three laps on the
race track, so by the time they
get that done, the sun will be
coming up," he said.
At that time, the group will
make a nearly 90-mile loop that
will carry them up into Polk
County near Lake Reedy in
Frostproof.
They then will settle into
making 11-mile laps for the bal-
ance of their time.
Andrews said it did not
appear that the construction on
Haywood Taylor Boulevard -
formerly Airport Road -
would cause the cyclists much
of a problem.
"I had to alter the route a lit-
tle bit and it adds a couple
tenths of a mile to the loop," he
said.
SAndrews said it has one
advantage inasmuch as it cuts
down on the motor vehicle traf-
fic in the area.
A new feature this year will
be electronic timing.
"We're just like the race cars
at the 12 Hours, each of the
bikes will have a transponder so
each time they come by the
receiver will catch them and
record the lap," he said.
Although it will be pricey,
Andrews said the new technol-
ogy would be a good invest-
ment.

The Collings Foundation B-25 Mitchell 'Tondelayo' will return to the Sebring Regional Airport on Mar
1-2, along with the B-17G Flying Fortress '9-0-9.' The Collings Foundation Consolidated B-24J
Liberator will have a new paint job and join the other two later in the tour as 'Witchcraft,' an homage to
the original World War II 8th Air Force bomber that completed 23 missions without losing or injuring a
single crew member.



B-17 and B-25 return to Sebring


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Once again,
Highlands County will get a
visit from two of its favorite
veterans: The Collings
Foundation "9-0-9" B-17
Flying Foitress and
"Tondelayo" B-25 Mitchell.
The warbirds, or the "old
girls," as some of the flight
crews affectionately call them,
will touch down on the old B-
17 training base late in the
afternoon on Monday, Feb. 28.
That training base was once
called Hendricks Field, but is
now home to the Sebring
Regional Airport. On Tuesday
and Wednesday, March 1-2, the
planes will be open for public
access, tours and paid flights.
Ryan Keough, director of
marketing and promotion, said
the tour is a way to introduce
younger generations to the
machines that helped win
World War II, as well as to the
remaining veterans who come
out to see them.
"It's (also) a major fund-rais-
ing opportunity for us," Keough


said.
Visitors may do a walk
through tour for a donation of
$7 for adults and $4 for children
younger than 12. For a higher
donation, more adventurous
visitors may take a flight "mis-
sion" on one of the warbirds.
Keough said Collings
Foundation will fly missions
once enough people have
signed up to take the flight. The
B-17 will seat six to nine peo-
ple, at $400 per seat. The B-25
bomb bay separates the cockpit
from'the tail, so tickets are $375
for the two front seats, which
includes access to the nose, and
$300 for the rear seats at the
gunners windows. There is an
excellent view from the tail,
however.
This year will commemorate
the 60th anniversary of the end
of World War II.
B-24 not coming
The majority of ;the Florida
portion of the Wings of
Freedom Tour will have only
the B-17 Flying Fortress and B-
25 Mitchell. The B-24


Liberator is expected to return
to the tour hopefully by March
18 in Dunnellon, near Ocala. -
Keough said the "Dragon
and his Tail" Pacific-theater sil-
ver paint scheme will give way.
to the olive-drab of the
European theater 8th Air Force,
but the repainting job is taking
so long the plane won't be
ready for at least another.
month.
Renamed "Witchcraft," the
B-24 will sport a cartoon witch
on a broomstick with a bomb in
her hand. She'll pay homage to
the original Witchcraft that flew
with the 467th Bomb Group out
of Rackheath, England, in
1944. She flew and completed
130 missions and never lost a
crewman, had a crewman
injured, or turned back for any
mechanical or battle damage.
At the end of the war, the
Witchcraft returned to the man-
ufacturing plant at Willow Run,
Mich., and then transferred to-
Altus, Okla., where she was
melted down. It was a fate met
by a lot of old planes, Keough
said.

Parkway Phase 2


plans v

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING County
Engineer Ramon Gavarrete
wants residents and businesses
on the Sebring Parkway Phase 2
route to remember access will
be limited when it's done.
He presented the latest plans
at Tuesday's county commis-
sion meeting to inform com-
missioners and the public.
Sebring Middle School
Starting at Ridgewood Drive
heading southbound, the medi-
an will have a left-turn cut at
Grapefruit Street for north-
bound traffic only. Other traffic
can only turn right there.
At Lemon Street, pedestrian
traffic must go to East Center
Avenue. A traffic signal con-
nected with the railroad cross-
ing should help keep cars and
pedestrians off the tracks.
Flower streets
Nasturtium and Violet
avenues and Eucalyptus Street
will become right-turn only.
Rose Avenue will be a cul-de-
sac.


Jump Rope for Heart


villa limit access


Commissioner Bob Bullard
wants a median cut there so res-
idents can turn left onto their
streets without having to U-turn
at congested Center Avenue.
Gavarrete could make that area
a five-lane road with a center
turn lane.
Sebring High School
Highlands Avenue will cut
off at the railroad tracks and
turn east at the future softball
complex, with Parkway access
at Center Avenue. Commerce
Avenue will realign to a new
access road and parking on the
north and northwest side of
Sebring High School.
All other school entrances on
Highlands Avenue, and the fur-
thest western entrance on
Kenilworth Boulevard, will dis-
appear in favor of one on
Highlands and two on
Kenilworth.
Fred Wild Elementary
Fred Wild Elementary
School will lose half of the
front parking and the entrances
on Highlands Avenue, except
for a right-only exit with an


acceleration lane. The county
will build access roads to the
rear of the school.
To improve visibility of an
entrance/exit on Youth Care
Lane, Gavarrete said road
crews will remove six to seven
feet of dirt from the first hill on
that road.
DeSoto Road & HRMC
The county will use a
frontage road to connect Las
Vegas Boulevard and San
Francisco Lane for internal traf-
fic in Francis Mobile Estates
Unit II.
Gavarrete is still waiting to
see plans from.private engineer
Dale Polston for parking and
traffic around Highlands
Regional Medical Center. Right
now, the Parkway will take out
outpatient parking, with main
access at Medical Center Drive.
Bullard wants to have right
in and out access at the current
main entrance. Gavarrete said it
may work if he extends the con-
crete center curb at the U.S. 27
intersection to prevent left-hand
turns.


Windy Point Park gets go-ahead


RANGE
Continued from 1A
Everyone had left to fight a for-
est fire their plane had ignited
with an off-target smoke bomb.
County Administrator Carl
Cool said that two possible
bomb sites on the range -
Alpha and Fox-trot are in
Polk County, well away from
Highlands County residents.
Since planes fly a lot higher
now to deliver their bombs, he


said only explosions should be
noticeable.
Environment
Commissioner Bob Bullard
wants to be sure that aluminum
and other contaminants that can
come from exploded munitions
don't find their way into the
aquifer and local drinking
water.
Economics
Bullard doesn't see much
positive economic impact to the
county since bombing activity
could restrict timber, hunting


and fishing on the range.
Twenty miles of airspace set
aside for maneuvers might
impact air traffic at the Sebring
Regional Airport and the Avon
Park Municipal Airport.
Cool said the airspace issue
has always been there. If the
Navy does joint operations with
other branches of the service, it
might bring in soldiers that
would spend money here. Even
though the range has been
closed as a base for about a
decade, that hasn't stopped
planes from using it, Cool said.


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Anglers and
pleasure boaters who use Lake
Istokpoga will soon have more
room to moor.
On Tuesday, the Highlands
County commission approved a
contract with KDL
Construction Inc. to build
Windy Point Park with parking
spaces for about 100 boats and
vehicles, restrooms, a picnic
area, fishing pond, vegetation
buffers and improved access to
the lake.
Parks and Recreation
Director Vicki Pontius said con-
struction will replace the exist-
ing Windy Point boat ramp on
the southwest side of the lake
with' a larger rrmp,' aid 'set
Another one beside it. Boaters


will have two ramps about 20
feet wide by 40 feet long, divid-
ed by a 6-by-60-foot long dock.
The project contract is for
$1.32 million.
The county has $200,000
each from the Florida. Bating
Improvement Program and the
Department of Environmental
Protection Florida Recreation
Development Assistance
Program.
Another $285,000 will come
from the local boating improve-
ment fund, which will bring the
county cost down to $685,000.
Commissioners approved
$300,000 from recreation funds
to help service a debt, since the
one penny sales tax is in place
for at least long enough to,cover
a 1b0-to l'-year loan. .'
However, commissioners


still want to hear next week
from Rick Helms, director of
the office of management and
budget, before approving a
budget amendment.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission owns the 38.8-acre site.
The county has a lease agree-
ment to make improvements.
Plans to improve parking at the
site have been in the works
since at least summer 2002.
At any given time, Pontius
said, the access road to the
Windy Point boat ramp is lined
with trucks and boat trailers.
Commissioner Edgar Stokes
confirmed that boaters don't
have a lot of parking. on the
lake. 'Lake 'I~tokpoga Park on

Car-Medic Center



relocates after storm


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Mike and
Yamila Marrero, husband and
wife, are a car repair team
whose motto is "better service
for less."
"Mike went out on his own
about five years ago," Yamila
said, "in order to offer better
service and pricing." Then
when' their previous location
lost itsroof during recent hurri-
canes, they relocated to 2729
U.S. 27 South in Sebring.
"It was a good move, possi-
bly a blessing in disguise,"
Mike said. "Now we have five
bays to give better service, and
are in a more convenient loca-
tion (at the entrance to
Lakeshore Mall.)"
Conveniently they are open
from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday
through Friday, and prefer that
people call 358-9898 for
appointments, but always- wel-
come walk-ins.
"I always try to answer ques-
tions and concerns especial-

R-Buckle Ranch joins
American Angus
SEBRING R-Buckle
Ranch of Sebring is a new
member of the American
Angus Association, reports
John Crouch, executive vice
president of the national breed
registry organization in St.
Joseph, Mo.
The American Angus
Association, with more than
34,000 active adult and junior
members, is the largest beef
cattle registry association in the
world. Its computerized
records include detailed infor-
mation on more than 14 million
registered angus.
The association records
ancestral information and
keeps production records on
individual animals for its mem-
bers.


ly of women," Mike said. "And-
we always give the same kind
of service we'd like to receive."
Yamila, who runs the office
and mans the phone, is excited
about plans to offer a "Car
Maintenance Class for Women
Only" in the near future.
"Because, there are so many
divorced, widowed and single
women out there, we can show
them where and what's under
their food and '.. ii 'normal' is
supposed to look like," Yamila
said. "Perhaps we'll even
demonstrate how to change a
tire. Women need to understand
the basics of their own car so
they are never vulnerable."
Tires, custom wheels, trans-
missions, diesels, brakes, lube
and oil changes, tune-ups, alter-
nators, vehicle inspections, bat-
teries, air conditioning repair,
starters and more are offered at
Car-Medic Center.
"As a bonus to our cus-
tomers, we give a card when
they have an oil change," Mike
said, "and when it's used four


times, the next one is free. Also,
if a customer refers another cus-
tomer to us, we'll give them a
free oil change."
Richard Hunt, a Sebring cus-
tomer waiting while Mike
works on his car said, "I always
went to his old location. Mike's
taken care of three or four cars
for me. He gives great service.
Mike's a young guy who works
very hard to satisfy people."
Mike and Yamila both stress
that people are looking for a
trusting relationship with the
person who repairs their cars.
"People want to know who's
working on their car, and Mike
listens when customers talk,"
Yamila said. "Mike is their car
doctor, and he knows each vehi-
cle's health history. Sometimes
they'll hear a noise and drop by,
just to check it out and be com-
forted that it's not a serious
problem."
"Business is very good,"
Yamila said, "good enough
we're looking for an additional
mechanic."

Phony invoices can
ruin your day
I recently received a call from a
Marco Island business woman who.
was upset because a vendor shipped ,
her several boxes of packing tape she
didn't order. When she contacted the "'
shipper he angrily refused her requests CONS
to return the goods and threatened to
ruin her credit if she didn't pay.' OUTF
Without going into detail, we dis- -
cussed options on how to handle the Ma
situation, none of which included pay- Math
ing for the unsolicited order. In this
case the business owner actually
received goods. That's not what usually happens.
Invoice swindlers take advantage of sloppy
bookkeeping or inattentive employees. The scam
often starts with a phone call where the crook
tries to get the names and titles of the people who
authorize purchases or invoice payments. To give
legitimacy to the fake invoice one or more of
these people are named in the invoice or referred
to when convincing an employee the invoice is
legit.
The invoice ,comes in the mail or as a fax. It
looks real and contains information listed on
most invoices names, amounts, and purchase
order numbers. The invoice is usually for a small
amount, one that won't raise eyebrows. It is for a
product that you use in your business and there-
fore represents a logical purchase. The swindler
is betting that the bill will be inadvertently paid
along with routine bills.
Crooks mail out thousands of bogus invoices
and hope that a percentage will be paid. They are
playing a numbers game, gambling. They gamble
that the more invoices they mail, the better the
chances that someone will pay. As a comparison,
consider unsolicited credit offers you receive in
the mail. Legitimate companies take calculated
risks that you will complete the application. If
you do, they make money. Same with the crooks.


385-6155


Once the invoice has been sent
swindlers sometimes use scare tactics
to make you pay. They stamp words
like "past due" on invoices or make
threats of turning the account over to
-^. their legal department or collection
agency. They use psychology to make
'. you feel guilty and hope you send pay-
ment before fully investigating.
WUMER Another popular scam involves
phony advertisement solicitations.
REACH With this one, you receive a bogus
I- invoice for a yellow page ad you never
ark placed or for space in a magazine,
;osian newspaper or business directory.
-- Again, careful inspection and investi-
gation reveals the invoice is a fake.
Protecting yourself from these scams is not
difficult. First, and foremost is to remember that
every day thousands of bogus invoices are mailed
to businesses just like yours. Therefore, you must
educate your employees about these frauds and
make it everyone's responsibility to watch for
them.
Second, don't rush and. don't allow your
employees to rush when paying bills. Be sure you
received the product or did order it. This means
checking invoices against purchase orders. If you
accept or place orders over the phone, know who
you are doing business with. Get local business
and bank references and check them out. If you
don't already have them, establish internal con-
trols over bill paying.
Finally, if you are defrauded by a swindler who
uses the mail, notify the U.S. Postal authorities.
Keep the bogus invoice and related materials in a
safe place. They may be needed later as evidence.

VFW auxiliary awards youth


for writing patriotic essays


LAKE PLACID At a
recent ceremony at the Lake
Placid Christian School, the
ladies auxiliary of the Lake
Placid Veterans of Foreign Wars
Post 3880 honored the students
who recently took part in the
youth essay contest.
The essay contest was titled
"What Service to Our Country
Means to Me."
A special thank you was
extended to all the students who
took the time and energy to par-
ticipate in the contest and also
Headmaster Dennis Griffin and
the staff for allowing the stu-
dents to do so.
There were a total of 37 stu-
dents who participated. They
were from the sixth, seventh
and eighth grades. It was diffi-
cult to pick a first place winner,
so the auxiliary decided to have
a first winner from each grade.
The winners received a check
and a certificate of apprecia-
tion. These were the top win-
ners: Coleby Slade, sixth grade;
Slade Bronson. seventh grade;
and Anthony Olka, eighth
grade.
The rest of the students who
entered the contest also
received certificates of appreci-
ation for their efforts. There
was a lot of good thoughts and
great patriotism shown in the
essays, which makes auxiliary
'


members especially proud of
the youth today.
Attending the ceremony at
the school were chairman of the
essay contest Suzanne Krueger,
past commander Charles


Krueger, patriotic instructor
Kathleen Margetts and Phillip
Margetts, member of the VFW
Post.
VFW members enjoyed their
visit to the school.

Winning ninth-grader _/



knows east from west


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK Hans
Vonwalter knows his way
around.
He should. Since taking an
interest in geography back in
the fourth grade, the Walker
Memorial Academy ninth-grad-
er has been mapping out a win-
ning course.
On March 3, Vonwalter will
travel to Winter Haven where
he will vie for the title of state
champion in the AAA Travel
High School Challenge, and a
chance to represent Florida in
the national competition, which
will be held later in the year.
The three top ranking stu-
dents in the national competi-
tion will receive scholarships of
$23,000 each, and the second
three best scorers will receive
scholarships of $10,000 each.
To get to this point the 15-
year-old had to first take a 40-
question, multiple choice test,
and finish it within 20 minutes.
This test was administered
throughout the state and nation,
with about 11,000 high school
students competing nationally.
Vonwalter earned one of the
top five scores in Florida,
which is why he is now com-
peting for the state title.
His success is all the more
remarkable because he is a high
school freshman competing
against mainly juniors and sen-
iors.
Vonwalter has impressive
experience for one so young.
A student at Walker since
kindergarten, he has .on the
school's geography bee every
year but one since the fourth
grad ',,,,,''ified for tl, r
in the axml and sevea adc. -
and won it in the eighth. This
meant he represented Florida at
the national finals in
Jacksonville last year. While he
did not win that competition, he
made a strong showing.
The AAA Travel High
School Challenge is designed

Hi, my name is
Joshua Strusz.
I recently helped

this is what they

Here's What We Say Alan Jayl


CHRISTOPHIER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Hans von Walter, a ninth-grader at Walker Memorial Academy, is a
finalist competing with four other students to become state champi-
on in the AAA Travel High School Challenge. State champions go on
to a national contest, which has college scholarships as prizes.


for high schoolers and is com-
prised of two written tests. The
better known national geogra-
phy bee is held annually, uses
oral questions, and is restricted
to students in elementary and
middle school.
Three years ago, in a promo-
tional campaign, the AAA held
its challenge as a special, one-
time only event to celebrate the
organization's centennial.
The response to the event
] h -r
mnat tfh AA., .1 .a g
School Challenge has become
permanent.
'Judy Johnson, who teaches
history and geography at
Walker Memorial Academy,
explained the contest's struc-
ture.
The first test of 40 questions


was taken on-line and was
based on a particular textbook
written for students of the trav-
el industry. Most of the ques-
tions related to the geography
,of tourism, and parts of the
world Americans are most like-
ly to visit on vacations.
"Hans had to study the book
for the first test," Johnson said.
"Now, (for the finals) he has to
have a broad general knowl-
edge (of geography). I have
'een c, ching him throughout
the lower grades and know he
has the skills. He's always been
highly motivated to seek excel-
lence."
Vonwalter is relying on his
inner compass. "I was nervous
because I knew how hard it was
to do," he said. "I just pray ith:i
I'll be successful."


"We Love Our Car! It is so easy to
drive and is comfortable on long trips,
even in the mountains. We are very
pleased with Joshua and the service
we received from Alan Jay Scion."

HALLO plans a 'Day of Wellness' for


AVON PARK The public
is '-- --ted to attend a compli-
mentary brunch and lecture
series Saturday, Feb. 19, in the
student services building, room
Bill, at South Florida
Community College.
During this "Day of
Wellness" the topics will
include self-care options for the
mind-body-spirit. A balance of
energy and vitality within your
whole being is essential to pre-


serve health. Come, be
informed by enlightening mes-
sages. Decide if a natural alter-
native to conventional tech-
niques is right for you.
Highly qualified area profes-
sionals will educate everyone in
discussion and demonstration in
their field of expertise. People
will have the opportunity to
learn the benefits of natural
alternatives or perhaps in con-
junction with conventional


techniques. The approaches,
treatments and practice may
help a person to improved pain
management, fitness and health.
Restore, preserve and prevent
health problems before they
arise.
The day starts with Tai Chi
on the lawn at 8:30 a.m. The
series of lectures features
acupuncture, herbology, chiro-
practic care, massage, colonic
cleansing and passive exercise.

After hurricanes,


a circle of help

With little fanfare, a happy milestone occurred recent-
ly: Federal Emergency Management Agency's temporary
office at the Highlands County Agri-Civic Center closed
its doors.
Even though FEMA's workers have been some of our
most welcome guests, it's hard not to see their departure
as a promising sign. After a long, hard summer of three
hurricanes, life here is no longer running on "emer-
gency" status. Finally, things are getting back to normal.
All over the county, blue roofs are getting hard to find.
Buildings that sported wounds for months are springing
back to health once again. Businesses are reopening.
Despite the news stories detailing Florida's devasta-
tion, winter residents flocked back to Highlands County.
And the return of temperate, winter, weather is driving
away thoughts of fleeing the state for areas of the coun-
try that hurricanes never touch.
If it's true that every cloud has a silver lining, then per-
haps being, battered by three natural disasters in two
months of going without electricity and hot food and
coping with leaky roofs is giving residents here a
heart for others. Perhaps that's why so many people are
now trying to help Southeast Asia's tsunami victims, who
were hit with a natural disaster far worse than three hur-
ricanes and who are facing a long future without food,
shelter, clean water and, in many cases, a livelihood to
return to.
So far, the Rotary Club of Sebring is about $2,000
away from its goal of raising $16,000 to buy shelter
boxes for tsunami victims. Students from Hill-Gustat
Middle School collected $2,000 for the American Red
Cross in a relief campaign, and churches and other
groups have kicked in donations. The list could go on -
with people helping in ways too numerous to mention.
Last summer, it was a blessing to be helped by others.
Now, with the relief of knowing that the last hurricane is
four months behind us, the most satisfying way to thank
all-of those who helped us then is by reaching pout to
t6iose who need our help now.

What can be done to make
Highlands County's roads
safer?

The speed limit should be
reduced to 45 mph on U.S. 27
in Sebring. From hospital on
north side to U.S. 98 on south
side. There's too much activity
in this area for 55 mph.
Also trucks should not be
allowed on inside lane except
for left turns.
Walter Brigida
Sebring

Your Feb. 11 editorial col-
umn says it all! Recent reader
says lower speed limit to 45
from Lake Placid to Avon Park.
I also agree with this as people
are turning on and off 27 from
all these stores. Drivers follow
too closely as they want to go
faster.
Greg and Ardella Keyes
Sebring

1. Enforce people to wear
reflective clothing when walk-
ing at night on major highways,
especially U.S. 27.
2. Remind drivers to use turn
signals.
3. If drivers drive the mini-
mum speed of 40 please stay on
the right.
4. Enforce "no tailgating" for
everyone.

The differing

opinions exist
Editor:
I think my last letter was the
shortest one I've written; yet,
I've gotten. more responses,
some positive, some negative.
I refuse to get into a political
debate; that would defeat my
purpose. Everyone has the right
to express their opinion.
However, I must take issue
with anyone who feels we
should departmentalize our
beliefs. If my relationship with
my Lord doesn't include every
part of my life I don't believe
I'm following God's teachings.
If I fail there, I've failed alto-
gether. I don't believe he wants
me to reserve any part of my
life to do as I please. I believe
he wants the whole. Without
which, it would be impossible
to please him.
The decisions we make con-
cerning politics are of the
27 utmost importance and we
should most assuredly seek his
x of will on how we vote. Our com-
the placency is what has gotten us
to this point with so many.

No one wants to

be involved
Editor:
I wrote an article about my
half sister who has Lou
Gehrig's disease in Friday's
paper, where I was asking if
anyone had advice on what to
do that I had not done.
I have written articles before
that I had compliments on.
A friend of mine told me that
no one wants to get involved
and others could care less.
I am not mad at anyone, just
disappointed in them. It seems
like if the shoe was on the other
foot they would demand some
help.
I guess that God still loves
my half sister and he will
answer my prayers for her. I
just wish that he would do it
soon so she does not have to


suffer any. I do not want her to
die, but it seems like that is the
only way she can have peace. If
there is any other way I would
rather be she could talk and get
things done that she wants
done.
In other words I love every-
one regardless even if they do
not want to get involved. Thank
you New-Sun for printing my
letters. Have a good day and
may the people's conscious
make them change.

Big business

dictates laws
Editor:
Our jnev' secretary of state
has'lost np.time in announcing
to the world that we are-now in
the planning stage of fixing our
"cross hairs" on Iran. Rice's
"take no prisoners" approach is
somewhat reminiscent of the
ground work laid out for her
attacking Iraq. The rumble of
Bush's war drums can be heard
in the distance.
Before you Republicans
begin your war dance, pause a
moment and consider that war
with Iran means nuclear. Our
secretary of state hastens to
assure the world "we have no
plans to attack Iran."
Now doesn't her words
make you feel safe and secure?
Do you suppose the world is
breathing a sigh of "relief" at
those words of reassurance?
Our president tells us he will
"fix" Social Security that is in
crisis and facing bankruptcy.
After that he says he will
"overhaul" Medicare.
Let me sum it up to you in a
nutshell. The moment George
W. Bush was appointed presi-
dent in 2000 he became drunk
in power, using this great coun-
try and the American people to
bring about fruition of his fan-
tasies of remaking the Middle
East and saving the world from
imagined dangers that did not
exist.
The powerful instrument as
leader should never have been
placed at George W. Bush's
will.
Buckle your seatbelt folks.
You may get to see that mush-
room cloud Bush and Condi
Rice so often remind us of in
that push to initiate a war in
Iraq.
I for one and many others I
expect, still remember the crash
of the stock market in 1929.
I was 9 years old at the time
and though I did not understand
entirely, I listened to grown ups
and wore shoes my mother
lined with cardboard so I could
go to school.
Privatizing Social Security.is
a very dangerous thing to do,
even if the stock market is
robust.
Young people want what
they want when they want it.
New and powerful cars, trips,
technology of all kinds and liv-
ing high on the hog.
Credit cards are maxed out,
to get what they want when
they want it. What will they do
when banks start putting pres-
sure on them to collect their
debt?


Where will these young,
inexperienced workers turn for.
money to keep them solvent?
What if the market crashes?
The truth is, George W. Bush
has delusions, I believe, of
being some monumental icon
in the history books that out-
shines all our real heroes that
are worthy to be admired and
revered.
Apparently George W. Bush
has a desire to stamp every
document in Washington with
his name in 24 karat gold, even
if he doesn't understand what
they say!
Now about Medicare.
Congress blocked Medicare
from making a settlement with
pharmaceutical companies to
provide senior citizens with
medicines they could afford.
The deal would have cost
Medicare about $420 billion.
But because the pharmaceu-
ticals gave leading congress-
men gifts of large sums of
money, congressmen we elect
to office liked the money they
got from the companies and
therefore were not willing to
bite the hand that fed them.
They did pharmaceuticals a
favor and blocked the deal.
Medicare now pays about
$750 billion for medicines sen-
iors must have. That's why the
cost will go up. We elect them
for doing our business in
Washington but they don't
work for us. They work for
themselves and gobble up the
money taxpayers pay them.
We do not have a govern-
ment in Washington or any-
where else. Big business dic-
tates our laws that are made in
Washington.
Peace in the Middle East
between Israel and the
Palestinians; hopes for peace
established on a handshake?
Camp David accords with
written signatures and wit-
nessed were not worth the
paper they were written on.
So how binding is a hand-
shake between two enemy
camps who would think noth-
ing of blowing each other to
pulp?
I hear you say, "That was
Yassir Arafat who signed the
Camp David accords." Yes it
was, but let's not forget Mr.
Habass was Yassir Arafat's sec-
ond in command.
Perhaps we should pray for
peace between the two rivals in
this way, "God's will be'done."
Looking in the King James
version of the Bible, St. Luke,
21:20-22 and 24 tells us "And
when ye shall see Jerusalem
compassed with armies (sur-
rounded) then know that the
desolation thereof is nigh."
"For these be the days of
vengeance, that all things that
are written may be fulfilled ..."
"And they shall fall by the
edge of the sword and shall be
led away captive into all
nations: and Jerusalem shall be
trodden down of the gentiles
until the time of the gentiles be
fulfilled."
We are sliding down that
proverbial "slippery slope".
There is no turning back at this
point.

MURPHY'S LAW

Lindsey N. Murphy


Fair rules

to live by

Oh the sweet smells of the
up-coming Spring..The cotton
candy, the funnel cakes, and the
-pigs?
Well, that only must .mean
one thing: The fair is in town.
Many children lose sleep
over this event (thus I am sure
many parents do too). The aura
that plays with our senses can-
not be trapped into a bottle.
Depending upon the area in
which you walk is the scent
that you receive. The conces-
sion stand makes a hungry
sweet-tooth growl, while the
animal barns make numerous
people turn up their nose. It is
almost like one of those "price-
less" commercials by Discov-
ery credit cards.
Now, the rides are a com-
pletely different story. Here is
where the quote of "when I was
a child I thought like a child"
comes into play. For, you see, I
used to ride those insanely
crazy rides to get a hyperactive
kick. You know, the ones like
the "Zipper," or the "Ferris
Wheel," or perhaps even that
stomach-turning "Ring-of-
Fire."
Yet, even though I am not
officially out of my teenage
.years, I can just watch the rides
go around, and around, and
around, and around to get
my high of life. For some rea-
son, I just cannot ride some-
thing that squeaks each time
someone moves. Call me silly,
but I think I might just be get-
ting old.
Still, walking into the
Sebring fairgrounds during fair
week always gives me a boost
of energy. And somehow, I
think it does that to each person
who walks through those metal
gates. Maybe it is a require-
ment; maybe it is just an illu-
sion. Either way, it is present.
Perhaps the best thing about
the fair coming into town is
that I can ditch my cell phone.
In today's modern age, it is
almost an essential to have it on
you constantly. (OK, that was
an exaggeration, but you get
my point). The reason for this
you ask? It is simply because at
any given moment, on any
given day, I will guarantee that
you would know at least five
people.
So, for those of ya'll like me,
who sometimes like to sleep a
bit more and hope that no one
will see you rather than to take
that extra time to become
"beautified," I will suggest you
to not do it at the fair. Because,
just like that one time at Wal-
Mart, you will see everyone
plus their mother. And trust me,
each one would love to do
nothing more than to notice
you, point you out to the
crowd, and create a conversa-
tion (you thought I would say
laugh, didn't you?).
So, as this week is filled with
rides, balloons, and ice-cream,
I recommend you to put on
your happy face. Turn that
frown up-side down as the fair
comes into town.

Have you listened to you lately?


Drive carefully. Drive very carefully.


Have you listened
to you lately? Really
listened to you.
Or are your
thoughts so jumbled
and filled with out-
side filter that
requires deleting, so
that you may clearly
hear your thoughts'?
Have you listened to
you lately, or are you
afraid of what you
may hear or learn

POINTS TO
PONDER

PAULINE AU YANG


Think on these things each
day we open up our minds to all
the deviousness, the corruption
and unkindness that's around
us. We gossip and tear down,
similar to a shredder; we turn
those around us into bits of
nothing.
If' each time we cultivate
damaging thoughts we were
privy to the damaging repercus-
sions, some of us would be hor-
rified at how evil we were.
It's amazing how we treat our
computers, in opposition to
how we treat our minds. We
treat them better that we treat
the human body. When the
computer mailbox becomes full
we delete the unwanted con-
tents. We protect it from spam.
To avoid it from becoming
infected with a virus, we apply
an anti-virus application.
We tend to give the computer
more protection than ourselves.
We filter all, and protect this
equipment to avoid a crash.
OK, can we do the same thing
for Qur overcrowded polluted
minds? Certainly.
We have a choice to know
what to allow into our thoughts.
We have a choice to guard our
thoughts. We have a choice to
filter out what will pollute our
minds.


As a man thinketh
so is he. The
thoughts that we har-
bor becomes us. We
are what we repeat-
edly do, therefore
what we do is not an
act, but a habit.
We tend to be
more protective of
our material things.
We spend hours
washing, cleaning,
wiping, polishing
and vacuuming the
car ... the house ...


the office. But really how many
hours do we spend cleaning our
thoughts,, listening to what is
filtered from our lips?
Maybe, just maybe, we are
scared to listen to what xve think
and say. We are too nervous to
discover the contamination that
lies within our thoughts and is
filtering from our lips. The hos-
tility, the prejudice, the anger,
the jealousy, malice and pride.
These are the disgusting
thoughts that need to be filtered
out.
We wonder why that nagging
headache won't leave. We won-
der why that backache lingers.


Spring Fling

was great show
Editor:
Last Saturday (Feb. 5) I
attended a performance of the
first annual "Spring Fling" at
Highlands Little Theatre.
This was a beautiful produc-
tion and anyone who missed it
missed a real treat. The comedi-
ans and dancers were delightful
and the music was beautiful.
The last song in the show was
absolutely breathtaking and I
was awed by its power.
Plan on attending this per-


We wonder why we feel so
stressed ... so tied up in knots ...
or why is it we loose focus,
stumbling as we proceed to do
our daily chores?
It's the clutter in our minds.
If we would only stop to listen
to our overcrowded thoughts
and delete the negative while
adding the positive, we would
be amazed at how much we'd
accomplished. How less tired
and stressed we'd be.
Apply this principle to your
daily living. It's a process, not
an easy one, but it can be
accomplished. Start filtering all
the negatives the past hurts,
the past disgrace, the past
anger, the romance, the failed
business deal. Give them all to
Jesus the shattered dreams,
wounded hearts, broken homes.
When all these are filtered
out, then you'll have a chance
to listen ... really listen to you
without being afraid.

back to making car
payments when my pickup was
paid off.
I'm happy all I lost was the
front end, some money and
time Thank you, Lord. I've
seen worse wrecks a lot
worse recently.
Mine was a rainy Friday
afternoon, Jan. 28, in Sebring.
Drizzle spray swept up by tires
clouded the road, but not
-beyond visibility. Traffic wasn't
heavy; wasn't light.
The weather was just right
for afternoon crashes, the kind
I've reported on time and time
again. I went out to investigate
a wreck at U.S. 27 and U.S. 98.
No one was injured, so I headed
back to the office.


American Legion Post 69, held
a fund-raiser at Wal-Mart to put
regulation size flags in Avon
Park school classrooms.
On Jan. 24 a flag presenta-
tion was made at Avon Park
Middle School. Part of the pres-
entation was the proper folding
of the flag and what each fold
stands for. We also displayed
the POW/MIA flag and
explained the significance of it.
The school was given eight
flags they needed.
The other flag presentations
were Jan. 27 at Park
Elementary and Walker


On the northbound
approach to the U.S.
27 and Highlands
Avenue intersection,
I found myself
approaching stopped
traffic too quickly
and tried to stop. The
brakes locked. I slid
into the back of a
black Ford Explorer
in front of me. The
Ford hit a crew-cab


F250 ahead of it. My
grill exploded, the fan pushed
back into the belt, and my hood
pinched back over the engine.
The motor stopped running.
We all declined help from the
ambulance. Highlands Regional
Medical Center was right there,
anyway.
Sebring police fast, effi-
cient and courteous investi-
gated the wreck, found me at
fault: "Too fast for conditions."
With a driver's safety class, I
won't save much money on the
fine, but maybe I'll prevent
another wreck.
Having experienced one of
the wrecks I write about, let me
warn you about a few things
from my experience.


Memorial Junior Academy.
Each school was given seven
flags. While at the schools, we
also passed out Poppies, small-
er flags, rulers and pencils with
the Pledge of Allegiance on
them.
A special thanks to John
Nagy, District President Betty
Lou Nagy and Aux. Pres. Linda
McElroy for their support and
help, and to the principals,
teachers and all the students for
a warm, enthusiastic reception.

Chairman


Be alert. The road changes
in front of you very quickly.
Be cautious on U.S. 27,
when the weather is bad or
good.
Do not trust your brakes to
stop you when the road is even
the slightest bit wet. Wet roads
in Florida are often oily even
more so when they haven't seen
rain in a while.
Just because the speed
limit sign says "55 mph," does-
n't mean that's safe. Slow down
if you can.
Keep a good distance from
everyone else in front of you.
Test antilock brakes to
make sure they will work. Mine
failed.
Finally, always wear your
seat belt. Mine caught me right
in the shirt placket where I tend
to wear my pens. It hurt bad
- but it kept me off the steer-
ing wheel. I'm thankful for that.
My 1994 truck had no air bags.
If all I got out of this was a
ticket, a fine, a traffic class, a
monthly car payment, increased
insurance rates, a pain in the
chest and a lesson, I'll count
myself lucky.
I've seen a lot worse wrecks.

Dragons edge Avon Park in 10-3A semifinal


BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun Correspondent
LAKE PLACID "It was our turn,
wasn't it?" Lake Placid head coach
Steve Young said with a grin after
Tuesday night's District 10-3A opening
round. He was right.
Truth is, few people have gotten as
many second chances as the Green
Dragons have. After losing four games
by a total of eight points, and the last
meeting against Avon Park by one, it
was finally Lake Placid's turn and the
Dragons broke through with a 55-53
win, sealed by a Jovanni Shuler steal in
the final seconds of the game.
The Dragons will face Hardee in the
semifinals Thursday at 7:45 p.m.
"We've talked about all that and we
got over the hump finally," Young
added. "We've lost a lot of games real


close and we'd started to maybe doubt
ourselves, but I tell you, we had another
close one here, we got the win and it's a
big win for us. Avon Park's a good bas-
ketball team."
Jan Valk and Quay Lake Placid
Crenshaw led the Dragons
with 14 points and Valk
added a team-high 10 Avon Park
rebounds. Pat Menzies had
another big night for the
Devils with 11 points, five Up Next
rebounds, five steals and Semifinal vs.
two blocks. Hardee on
"We lost to them' by Thursday
four up in Avon Park, we
lost to them by one here at this place, so
we've played tough, close games every
time that we've played them. And this
time it was finally our turn and we final-
ly got over the hump."


A combined seven points have decid-
ed the three meetings between the
Highlands County squads and it was
obvious this game would follow suit as it
unfolded.
Avon Park jumped ahead when Bo
Comadore hit a 3-pointer to go up 7-4.
Lake Placid went on a 5-0 run to finish
the first quarter, however, led by four
points by both Shuler and Yurrie
Robinson. The Dragons continued to roll
with the first five points to start the sec-
ond frame.
And despite 3-pointers from Devils
Mike Diaz and Devaris Strange, Lake
Placid led going into the break 24-17.
Morgan Moran led all scorers that quar-
ter with all eight of his points on the
night.
The game stayed close into the fourth
quarter when the Dragons led 41-34, but


five points from Strange and another two
made it 41-40. Avon Park finally tied the
game with a Comadore trey.
. Lake Placid had its best chance to
close things out earlier than planned
when a double-technical was issued to
the Devils, giving the home team four
free throws with 1:02 left on the clock.
The Dragons led 51-45 at that point and
after the shots, they still led 51-45.
"I don't ever expect to lose a game
unless, you know, we're down by 30.
The only thing that bothered me was we
had about a five point lead and then we
had the personal foul, the technical stuff,
and we missed all four of those foul
shots. If we hit all of those, it's probably
not even that close. But we didn't get
those and, hey, we'll take the win."

Devils open


season with


shutout win
BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK The winner and
loser weren't unexpected, but the way
both teams got to their results held
some surprise.
Heather Barnes went 3-for-4 and
Julia Lamb 2-for-3 to lead Avon Park to
an opening-game victory, but Lake
Placid pitcher Courtney Petty (0-1)
went the distance, holding the Lady
Red Devils largely in check despite
absorbing a 3-0 loss.
Avon Park "I was much happier
with this outing than last
time," Lake Placid head
coach Marylin Jones
Lake Placid said, referencing
0 Monday's 12-1 loss to
Sebring. "When your bad
Up Next inning is one run, and
Devils at you have three bad
Moore Haven innings, that meant the
on Monday; game was reachable. We
Dragons at just couldn't score."
Hardee Tues. Amanda Tindell (1-0)
allowed four hits, struck out 10 batters
and walked none, making sure the Lady
Green Dragons (0-2) never mounted a
charge.
"She's got a pretty deceiving drop
ball outside," Avon Park head coach
Mike Cobb said. "It kind of fools you a
little bit, and it sneaks back in on you."
"They're afraid to swing the bat,"
Jones said of her hitters.
Nonetheless, Cobb walked away
with a positive opinion of the Lake
Placid offense.
"Lake Placid hit the ball. I was
impressed how they swung the bats,"
he said. "They did better than I think
what the girls were expecting."
Avon Park seemed poised to explode
.with the bases loaded and no one out in
the fifth, but after allowing an RBI sac-

rifice fly to Jessica Cormier, Petty
retired the next two batters to keep the
score. 3-0.
Offensively, catcher Jenna Waldorff
led the way for the Dragons, going 2-
for-3 with a single and a double.
What Jones said her team must do
now, in the week's time before it
returns to action Tuesday at Hardee, is
work on, fundamentals. Twice in the
fifth inning, the Dragons failed to pick
off runners they had caught between
third and home.
"We work on hitting fast pitches, and
then knowing what to do on a play, like
a tag play, not to separate the ball and
the glove," she said, referencing anoth-


er play in the seventh inning when an
infielder missed a tag. "These are
things that hopefully we'll get better
at."
Cobb's team stands to improve with
the imminent addition of players from
the girls basketball team, when their
state playoff run ends, and those
involved with the Highlands County
Fair.. Cobb said five varsity players,
three of whom are regular starters, were
missing Tuesday.
Still, he is not making excuses for his
team.
"I think they just played well enough
to win, and I wasn't real impressed with
them."

LAKE PLACID The Lady Green

Lake Placid shortstop Jenna Woertz

earn a 12-1 win.

wound up with 12 total

"She was locating her pitches pretty
well," Sebring head coach Lee Tolar said.
"Her changeup was working really well
tonight, and anytime you can keep the bat-
ters off balance, that what we're looking
for."
Making her change all the more effec-
tive was that she brought a little more heat
than usual, Tolar said.
"She had pretty good pop on the ball,"
he said. "She'had the velocity tonight, and
when she needed it, she had the offspeed."
Statler also had plenty of offense to
back her up. Jean Gose's 3-for-5, two-RBI

High School Softball

Lady Dragons hope to end drought


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
LAKE PLACID Perhaps if Lake Placid
football can break a losing streak that dated back
a couple of years, so can Lake Placid softball.
Ending a drought that has lasted since 2003 is
the first goal for the Lady Green Dragons, who
were winless in 2004.
"We've got a good group, of freshmen and
sophomores," head coach Marylin Jones said.
"The future is there, if we can just get a pitcher."
The Lake Placid infrastructure, however, is not
conducive to developing an arm.
"I know very little about pitching, and what
these girls have learned, most of them have
learned on their own, or having one or two peo-
ple work with them, but not constantly," she said.
"We don't have a pitching coach, and that kills
us."
Nonetheless, Dana Kent and Megan Spurlock
will strive to make do, offering similar looks as
they split the starts on the rubber.
"They're both fairly controlled," Jones said.
"Dana's just a little bit younger and Courtney has
more experience.
"Jenna Waldorff also pitches, but then that
leaves us kind of vulnerable in the catcher's spot,
because she's very strong there," Jones added.
The Lady Dragons already must plug one hole
for at least a week, while shortstop and leadoff
hitter Jenna Woertz recovers from a shoulder
injury. Nicole Weeks moved from center field to
short and from No. 2 hitter to the top of the order
in Monday's season opener, while Megan
Spurlock entered the lineup in place of Weeks. *
Surrounding Spurlock and Weeks in the out-
field are Stacy Davis in left and cleanup hitter,
Katie Mason in right. Lauren Morrison, Darby
Underwood and Traci Bozeman hold down first,
second and third base.
All of the Dragons' position players must

Sebring's 10-player roster to
neither get a hit nor score a run
was catcher Jessica Cooley,
who instead 'made her mark
defensively.
"She did a real good job with
her pickoff plays," Tolar said,
referencing a third-inning wipe-
out of a runner at third. "She's

improve at the plate in order for Kent and Petty to
have any success in the circle, Jones said.
"We have been. very weak offensively," she
said. "We just need to come up with some kind of
way to hit the ball and make contact. I've got
some girls that are fairly fast. If.we can just get
some confidence in our bunting, and bunt-and-
run, that would be another route to take."
Jones' team won't be quite complete until the
District 10-3A champion girls basketball team
ends its run and allows for the return of reserve
outfielder Rose Charles, from whom the softball
Dragons may perhaps gain a long-sought sense of
what it feels like to win.


getting very accurate. She's got
a gun."
Jones also praised the work
behind the plate from her catch-
er, Jenna Waldorff, but knows
the sort of performance she saw
from her team Monday will not
bring about much change from
a winless 2004.
"When you don't hit the ball,
and they get 12 runs, you're
going to go home early," she
said. "We'll get better hopeful-


ly, but the sad part is they prob-
ably will, too."
Given the first regular season
look at his team, Tolar has
already targeted specific room
for improvement.
"The biggest thing that
jumped out at me was we've
got to correct the problems we
have with baserunning," he
said. "It didn't happen much; it
happened a couple of times, but
in big games that'll cost you."

minutes and then put it to bed."
Yates said the pitch on a
1-1 count- was an inside fast-
ball, which is just what he was
waiting for on that particular
count and he launched a moon
shot down the left-field line to
score Crone from second.
"He'd been throwing it all
night and it just looked pretty,"
Yates said. "It was always feels
good (to hit a home run), espe-
cially to win the game. It feels
great."
SFCC (11-5) led 4-2 after
four innings, only to have
Central Florida score four in
the top'of the sixth.
The Panthers answered with
three runs in the bottom of the
sixth on Jesse Litsch's bases-
loaded walk followed by a sin-
gle to right from Crone and a
wild pitch to go up 7-6, but
CFCC got back to even with a
run in the top of the seventh.
Colin Marshall picked up his
third. win in relief for the
Panthers.


You don't actually believe
the guy, do you?
Jose Canseco is all the latest
'roid rage, given his new book,
"Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant
'Roids, Smash Hits and How
Baseball Got Big," and the 60
Minutes interview that preced-
ed its Monday release.
Yet for as thick as Canseco
got on steroids, and about half
of baseball along with him, or
so he claims, his credibility is
as rail-thin as a mid-1960s sec-
ond baseman.
There's no doubting, of
course, that a good number of
Major Leaguers have taken
steroids in the past several
years. Jason Giambi admitted
he did so in grand-jury testi-
mony, for pete's sake.
But if the gunman on the
grassy knoll had a hand in the
Kennedy assassination, does
that mean he kidnapped the
Lindbergh baby, sunk the
Lusitania and introduced the
new Coke, too?
Simply because some sordid
truth leaked out on one player
doesn't mean that any and all
speculation about the rest of
the players union is therefore
true and irrefutable.
The leak of Giambi's testi-
mony to the San Francisco
Chronicle in December served
to further align the klieg lights
for the book's release, which
Canseco was already promot-
ing back then in an ESPN
interview. For some, this reve-
lation lent credence to
Canseco's tell-all, turning like-
ly skepticism into belief.
Publishers, however, weren't
easy converts. A literary agent
told ESPN.com's Darren
Rovell that Regan Books,
Canseco's publisher, turned
down the project two and a
half years ago, and that pub-
lishing lawyers had significant
libel concerns.
Nonetheless, it. seems some-
one at the HarperCollins sub-
sidiary finally broke down, and
now Canseco, three and a half
years since his last Major
League game, is back in the
news.
Interestingly enough, the


TIME OUT
Chuck Myron

graced ex-slugger is leaping to'
discredit his own accomplish- -
ments, claiming he used
steroids for the entirety of his
career, for the chance to dis-
credit others, and reap the
financial benefits of a best-
seller while doing so. For a
man who once charged fans
$2,500 to visit him while he
was on house arrest, it's not a
stretch to assume a fast buck
wasn't the motivation.
And when money is
involved, dishonesty can't be
far behind.
In his book, Canseco alleges
he that Mark McGwire "often'
.allowed his then-Oakland
teammate to inject him with
steroids in a bathroom stall
before games.
In the 60 Minutes interview,:
Canseco said he injected
McGwire "probably twice."
Interviewer Mike Wallace
called him on the error, and
though this is a rather minor
mathematical sticking point,
his ensuing non-answer to
Wallace's request for clarifica-
tion, and the fact that slight
numerical fudging can add up
(just ask Ken Lay), doesn't
earn Canseco any points with
me.
Sure, McGwire could be as
full of juice as an old smudge
pot. So could Barry Bonds,
Rafael Palmeiro, Brady
Anderson and anyone else who
went up five hat sizes over the-
course of their career. *
Yet keep in mind suspicion, -
allegation and truth aren't syn--
onymous.

Jennifer is committed to her goal of 'performing
Appalachian music with the integrity it
deserves," and, given her true, clear soprano
voice, natural stage presence and sensitive
accompaniment style on her dulcimer or guitar,
she has no problem beguiling audiences the
world over; leaving them to wonder how a
concert of folk music could please the ear like
usually only good chamber music can.
