Bullard: Six lanes


needed in Lake


Placid for growth


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING If Lake
Placid and Highlands County
will benefit from four-laning
State Road 70, Lake Placid
will need six lanes on U.S. 27.
That's what Commissioner
Bob Builard of Lake Placid
said Tuesday when county
commission reviewed the
long-range transportation
plan priorities, expected to
cost $195 million. According
to representatives from the
Florida Department of
Transportation and Tom Ross
with CH2M Hill consulting
firm out of Orlando, no one
with the Lake Placid Town
Council specifically asked for
widening on U.S. 27 to head
south of Landings Road, but
Bullard said it should be a pri-
ority.
"Whether (Lake Placid) did
it or not, you need to six-lane
U.S. 27 all the way to State
Road 70," Bullard said.
In addition, he wants
Daffodil Street extended
south as part of the priority
map to connect Placid Lakes
to Leisure Lakes. Highlands
County Sheriff Susan Benton
had asked for the extension to
make emergency calls quick-
er between: the two communi-
ties.
Richard Oujevolk, plan-
ning analysis dildmini ttr.i.1,
with FDOT, said that alone
would add about $14 million
for engineering, right of way
purchases, installing four
miles of two-lane road and
upgrading the entire road to
an arterial road.


"That's a sight more than
hiring another deputy," said
Commissioner Guy Maxcy.
Still, commissioners
agreed it was necessary.
Outside of priorities,
Bullard asked to have West
Interlake Boulevard added as
a three-lane road, all the way
to Lake June. However, lie
asked that a Sylvan Shores
connection road not be done.
Along. those lines,
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart asked FDOT to use
care when designing road
extensions or widening into
established neighborhoods.
Oujevolk said FDOT is work-
ing with "context sensitive
design" to help incorporate
arterial roads
into or near
residential
areas with-
out disrupt-
ing the char-
acter of the
community.
BULLARD Maxcy said
that's a
major concern, especially
since a proposal to extend
Lakewood Road north to6
Howey Road, and extend
Howey Road west past Heron
Road could bring traffic off
U.S. 27 and through the
neighborhoods..
Oujevolk told commission-
co, inild i. ,1 u i,% d proposal
to c\tend County Road 635,
and even a limited access
,bypass through Hardee
County, would be needed in
10-20 years when U.S. 27

Sharp to head up United Way


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Cheryl Sharp
with the Highlands County
School District has been tapped
as the new Highlands County
dii sector for the United Way of
C ,a. Florida. "-
Teri Worthingtoh, president
of United \Wa) of Central
Florida, said outgoing director
Susie Bishop will work with
Sharp to orient.her to all of the
agency's programs. After that,
however, she will bring a lot to


the position.
When asked about areas of
service that she
would want to
improve for the
United Way,
Sharp said it's
too early to tell
and wants to
know more
about local SHARP
programs first.
"Susie Bishop has done an
excellent job," Sharp said. "I'd
like to get my feet wet (first),


and empower the board (of
directors)."
Since the board makes deci-
sions on what programs get
emphasized, she would like to
give the board leeway to set pri-
orities. For now, ,she said her
job is "to help them help the
community."
The real business of the
United Way in Highlands
County is to address and elimi-
nate needs, whatever and wher-
ever they may be, she said. A

tors as Sebring High School
launches into Operation FCAT
Excellence in the two weeks
before the Florida Comprehen-
sive Assessment Test.
With a jaunty military march

special lessons designed to help
them on the reading and math
portions of the FCAT.
Operation FCAT is the brain

SEBRING The Florida
Cracker Trail riders will be
marking the halfway point
this morning as they make
their annual crossing of U.S.
27 as they come off State
Road 66 and move down U.S.
98.
The yearly processional
marks the halfway trip of the
route which stretches from
Bradenton across the state.
"We had 106 the first day.
We have about 95 riders with
us right now," said Trail Boss
Kevin Webb as he rode
toward their Tuesday evening
encampment.
The group camped Tuesday
night at My Ole Ranch just
inside the Hardee County
line.
The trek is a re-creation of
the ride back that Florida
cowmen once took after driv-
ing their cracker cattle to mar-
ket on the state's Gulf Coast.
The caravan of horses and
wagons is slated to make its
way into Highlands County
this morning, crossing U.S.
27 at the intersection of State
Road 66 and U.S. 98 during
the morning hours.
"It. should be. somewhere
around 11 a.m. or so," said
Webb.
The riders will make sever-
al stops on their way through
Highlands County. They first
will visit Cracker Trail


Elementar\, School in
Sebring.
"That's were we'll take our
morning water break," Webb
said. He estimated that would
occur about 10 a.m.
The riders first stopped
there in 1992, shortly after the
school initially opened its
doors.
From there the group con-
tinues east to the crossing of
U.S. 27. That marks the
halfway point in the ride,
which spans six counties. The
ride across the mid-point gen-
erally is done with great fan-
fdre. Many of the riders carry
American flags as they mark
the occasion.
The riders then proceed to
the Rockin' Cross Ranch on
U.S. 98 where they stop for
lunch and to rest and water
the horses. They'll then head
out for their final stop of the
evening the Ashton Ranch.
They will set up camp at
the Lorida Ranch and stay
there Wednesday night.
"We're going to be doing a
lot of festivities in the arena
next door to where we'll be
camping. There will be a lot
of games, flag relays and even
some barrel racing," he said.
"That's open to the public.
We're hoping they'll come on
out."

string of roads that make up

VENUS A wreck
Saturday night on a dirt road
took the life of a 2-year-old girl
who, according to Florida
Highway Patrol, was not buck-
led up.
In fact, neither the driver,
Scherry Annette McClelland,
42, of Venus, nor two other
children, ages 6 and 4, were
restrained in a Jeep Cherokee
that rolled over. Arrest reports
state that when an FHP investi-
gator arrived at the scene of the
wreck and spoke with
McClelland, her speech was
mumbled and her breath
allegedly smelled of alcohol.
FHP charged McClelland
with driving under the influ-
ence of alcohol or drugs, DUI
manslaughter and driving with
a license suspended, with
knowledge. She was booked
into the Highlands County Jail
with bail set on Sunday at
$150,000 blanket bond.
Arrest reports also stated that
field sobriety tests weren't pos-


sible because of McClelland's
injuries, but a blood test was
done, as well as a breath test
after she had been treated at
Highlands Regional Medical
Center."
Five hours after the wreck,
according to reports, her breath
showed a blood alcohol level of
0.112. The legal limit is .08.
At 7:45 p.m. Saturday,
McClelland was driving a 1993
Jeep Cherokee eastbound on
Ellie Lane, "in an erratic man-
ner," according to FHP analysis
of her tire tracks in the dirt road.
About seven miles west of
Venus, she lost control. The
Jeep traveled onto the north
shoulder, spun counter-clock-
wise and overturned into a
canal, landing on its top.
Two-year-old Amy L. Harris,
seated in the right front passen-
ger seat, died from her injuries.
Katelin Fiedler, 6, and
Courtney Harris, 4, in the back
seat, were transported to
Florida Hospital Lake Placid,
according to FHP.
Born Aug. 19, 2002, Amy


Harris was the daughter of Paul
Harris and Jennifer Fiedler. She
was in temporary care of Joseph
*"Joey" McClelland and Scherry
A. Patterson McClelland.
Amy Fiedler is survived by
sisters, Katelyn Fiedler and
Courtney Harris of Venus,
Katrina Sockalosky of
Wauchula, Dustie McClelland
of Zolfo Springs, and Betty
Aldridge of Johnson City,
Tenn.; brothers, Cash
McClelland of Sebring, and Zac
Aldridge and Lee Carver, also
of Johnson City.
She was also survived by her
grandfather David Patterson of
Winter Haven, grandparents Joe
and Pam McClelland of Lorida,
and great-grandmother Ethel
Ledford of Sebring.
A funeral service is from 5-7
p.m. today at Dowden Funeral
Home at 2605 Bayview St. in
Sebring. Graveside- services
will be 2 p.m. Thursday in
Basinger Cemetery in Basinger.
The Rev. Robert Marcus of
Lorida First Baptist Church will
conduct the service.


Softball complex will have to scale back


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Not everyone
who wanted something at the
new softball complex will get
it.
At. least not right away.
After looking over the plans
for a softball complex, and get-
ting an estimate of $4.7 million
for the whole plan, members of
the ,Recreation and Parks
Advisory Committee decided
they need to scale back the
plan, to $2.5 million.
Plans presented last week by
Chastain-Skillman Inc. had the
proposed five-field adult soft-
ball complex, two soccer fields,
a football field with lights, and
another grass football field
without lights for, practice.
Other facilities include conces-
sion stands and restrooms for
softball fields and the soccer
and football fields, two play-
grounds, eight batting cages,
parking and retention ponds.
Batting cages were a "big
ticket item," Pontius said, at
$33,000 each. "We need to put
in fewer or write a grant for it."


The county might be able to
have some of these facilities,
Pontius said, if each one is
phased in over time.
Building
The Blackman Property is
52.17 acres of orange grove
North of Sebring High School
along Highlands Avenue. The
county commission has
approved buying the site for no
more than $800,000.
Developing it will cost much
more.
To buy and develop the land
would cost $2.97 million. The
county has funds in the recre-
ation budget to buy it, which
would leave $2.17 million to
finance development.
County recreation gets
$500,000 per year from the
one-cent sales tax, which is
expected to last for another 15
years. At that rate,, Pontius said
RPAC members would prefer to
keep construction costs at or
below $300,000 per year.
When RPAC members asked
if there were any other funds
they could use to help build the


ateway facility under way


to protect the operation in case:
of a hurricane and is rife with
back-up systems.
"There's a fully integrated
UPS system to maintaining
power for the building and the
antennas with a gaseous fire
suppression system called an
'FM200, which will put out the
fire but not injure the computers
or other electronics," he said.
Marty Neilsen, Globalstar's
director of new business ven-
tures, has been on site to moni-
tor the progress.
"We have 24 gateway opera-
tions worldwide but they are
independently owned and oper-
ated. This is the first venture
doing'the facility ourselves," he
said.
The 6,000-square-foot
switching facility is designed to
provide enhanced satellite
telephony throughout the
Caribbean with particular
emphasis on the maritime and
cruise ship industry.
"This will redefine the cover-
age, some of it now is out of
Texas and some of it is handled
through Canada," he said. "This
will fill in the spots and give us
robust coverage throughout the
region."
When they first discussed the
.. .. ..- ; .


new facility, company officials
said it would create four or five
new well paying, hi-tech jobs.
Globalstar bills itself as the
world's most widely used hand-
held satellite phone service
with both voice and data sys-
tems. It provides service to
individuals, businesses and
communities.
Established in 1991, the firm
began commercial service in
late 1999. Their service extends
across 100 countries as well as
most territorial waters as well
as some mid-ocean regions.
Moving voice or data around
the world involves a process
using a number of different
facilities much like the one that
is going in at the Sebring
Regional Airport.
Signals from a Globalstar
phone or modem are received.
by the company's constellation
of 48 Low Earth Orbiting satel-
lites and then relayed to ground
based gateways. They, in turn,
then pass the call on to the ter-
restrial telephone network.
Globalstar officials report
they subsequently are able to
provide a variety of telephone
services to users who live, work
or travel in areas far beyond the
reach Of cellular networks.


park, some mentioned the two-
percent tourist tax, on the prem-
ise that softball tournaments
might put "heads in beds" -
bring people into the county for
overnight stays.
Earthwork
"There are some major earth-
works (needed) on this site,"
Pontius said.
Being an old grove, the prop-
erty has astatula sand, which is
great for growing oranges, but
will trap car wheels if not stabi-
lized, Pontius said. Building the
parking area alone may cost
$510,000, depending on
whether the county uses topsoil
or mines some ol its own marl
and shell to build up the
.ground.
Maintenance
Annual maintenance costs
could be $164,965 for just the
softball fields and parking area,
with $138,000 coming in as
revenue from league fees, light
tokens, concession contracts,
batting cages, advertising signs
and tournaments.
The county might only pay
$26,965 per year in operating
costs, but without tournaments,
the fields would lose a large
part of the operating revenue.

RPAC will have another
meeting at 2:30 p.m. Thursday,
March 3, to pare down the
plans.

Student Councils from near-by

counties meeting at LPHS


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY

LAKE PLACID -
Excitement is building at Lake
Placid High School, which is
getting ready to host the annual
District V Florida Association
of Student Councils'
Leadership Conference.
District V includes counties
in south and central Florida,
including Brevard, Martin and
Palm Beach counties.
Normally a three-day event,
this year will be restricted to
Saturday, a direct result of the
time lost to the hurricane sea-
son, because students cannot
afford to lose another day of
school.
A motivational speaker,
workshops, competitions and
just plain fun are planned for a
day that will start at 8:45 a.m.
and run until 7 p.m.
Individual students will be
competing in a speech writing
contest, a parliamentary proce-
dure contest, wacky Olympics
and a talent show.
Schools will compete in a
contest where each student
council will enter five projects
done in the course of the year.
For example, Lake Placid's
student council held a Veteran's


Day Assembly; had a barbecue
for teachers to show apprecia-
tion; devised a Magic Note pro-
gramin where encouraging mes-
sages are written to help student
morale; helped Amy Moretz, a
teacher at Lake Country who
also teaches privately, put on a
dance recital; and devised lunch
time games, held in the school
commons, to involve the stu-
dent body.
School board members
Donna Howerton, the Rev.
Richard Norris and Wendy
Renfro will be among the
'judges, as will News-Sun
Night/Weekend Editor Cindy
Marshall.
Caitlin Munro, a junior, is
treasurer for District V and is a
member of the planning com-
mittee. "We really appreciate
all the support local businesses
have given us," she said, "They
made this day possible."
Munro also had words of
praise for the high school's
principal, Dr. Ruth Hecknian.
"She's very receptive to our
ideas .ijtd. the things we bring
up to her. We meet with her reg-
ularly, but her door is always
open."
Lake Placid's student council
is made up of 80 members.

on no bond.
Allegedly, at 7:46 p.m. Feb.
17, 2005, Highlands County
sheriff's deputies found him
352 feet away from the vic-
tim's residence. He had parked
his black GMC pickup in front
of a house under construction
on Shad Drive, then walked to
the rear of the house so he
could watch the 41-year-old
victim's home.
Allegedly, he had harassed
of violated injunctions against
the victim in nine other cases.
One of those was on Feb. 5,,
2005, when the victim woke
up to find Starks standing out-
side her bedroom door. She
asked what he was doing and
he said he wanted to see her.
She told him to leave and he
did. Both her front and back
doors were unlocked.
She couldn't say which way
he went, but noted the smell
of alcohol, complaint affi-
davits said. Some time elapsed
before she called law enforce-


SEBI

ment. She also did not hear a
vehicle start up, and didn't see
his car in the area.
Before that, she had prob-
lems with Starks in August
2002, and had been talking
with him lately.
It was after that incident
that she obtained an injunction
against Starks, which he then
violated on Feb. 9 by visiting
her house and calling her
twice on the phone after 11:30
p.m.
During a non-custodial
interview, Starks told deputies
he stopped at the Shad Drive
house on Feb. 17 just to use
the "port-a-john." However,
the facility is within 500 feet
of the victim's house.
His shoe impressions were
found near the Port-O-Let.
Apparently, he had driven past
his brother's house to use a
Port-O-Let at the construction
site near the victim's house.

In light of Schiavo case, living


wills need to be more specific


HRMC seminar

to help people

make decisions

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING On Friday,
Terri Schiavo will have been in
a "persistent vegetative state"
for 15 years.
On Tuesday, a Florida
appeals court cleared the way
for her husband to remove the
feeding tube that has been keep-
ing her alive. This latest court
action was blocked by another
judge at least until today.
Schiavo's parents, Bob and
Mary Schindler, sought an
emergency stay from a Pinellas
County judge in hopes of keep-
ing their daughter alive long
enough for them to file addi-
tional legal pleadings in the
case.
In 1990, a potassium imbal-
ance caused Schiavo to have a
heart attack. Her heart was
resuscitated, but spinal fluid
collected in her cerebral cortex
and she has not regained con-
sciousness.
The long battle between
Schiavo's parents and husband
has reached both the Florida
and U.S. Supreme Courts,


which have each ruled "Terri's
Law" the Florida law that
enforces her treatment -
unconstitutional.
Dr. Kenneth W. Goodman.
director of the bioethics pro-
gram at the University of
Miami, expects the fight will
continue. That's why he and
Highlands Regional Medical
Center held a public seminar
last week, along with two other
seminars for hospital doctors
and staff.
Documents

Goodman said living wills
and "do not resuscitate" orders
- general statements asking
medical personnel not to pro-
long life unnaturally once
allowed emergency personnel
and doctors to simply withhold
treatment or withdraw treat-
ment that had started. Those
documents will need to be more
specific now.
Goodman's expertise is
ethics having to make diffi-
cult decisions when nothing has
been done wrong. For each per-
son, these questions are influ-
enced by personal beliefs.
Goodman's own loved ones
have told him, "I don't want to
die like that," pointing to termi-
nally ill patients connected to


wires and tubes.
"This cloud has a silver lin-
ing," Goodman said. "People
are talking to loved ones about
their advanced care in a way
they never did before."

Comfort
Many people want to make
dying as comfortable as possi-
ble, with pain management
rather than continued treatment
that makes them feel sick and
uncomfortable. If they tell a
surrogate everything they want,
that surrogate can do their will
if they can't.
Johnsie McAlister, site direc-
tor for Good Shepherd Hospice,
said sometimes terminally ill
minors have asked not to be
treated and that puts her staff in
the middle.
Goodman said that's one rea-
son the hospice movement is on
the rise: People choosing com-
fort over treatment. Some .treat-
ments were never meant to pro-
long life indefinitely.
"Medicine can't bring back
the dead," Goodman said. "It
can prolong life at a very dear

Sheriff's office looking into suspicious warranty deeds


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING People who
own property in Highlands
County but don't live here may
want to check their property
deeds.
Recently, an absentee owner
found his land had been sold,
only he didn't sell it.
A clerk at the property
appraiser's office found a mis-
take on a warranty deed for
property in the Sun 'N Lake of
Sebring Improvement District.
It said Lot 2, but the seller
owned Lot 20. She contacted
the seller Norman L. Lutwak
of Lauderhill to correct the
mistake.


Rotary nears
By ROMONA WASHINGTON
Executive Editor
SEBRING It has been an.
impressive observation that
Dan Andrews has been making
since mid-January when the
Rotary Club of Sebring initiat-
ed the fund-raising drive to
raise money for Shelter Boxes
for the Southeast Asia tsunami
victims.
"It is amazing how strong
this community is. We were hit
by three hurricanes last summer
and the residents here still find
ways to give. It's amazing how
they are supporting efforts like
this," the club president said.
So far, the Rotary Club has
collected about $16,000 -
enough to have 17 Shelter
Boxes shipped to the tsunami
victims in just five weeks.
"Our original goal was to
buy 10 but we exceeded that.

BUGLES
Continued from 1A
Operation FCAT began when
Eshelman and Lewis met with
their counterparts at Avon Park
and Lake Placid high schools to
develop special preparation
classes for the 11th- and 12th-
graders who would have to take
the FCAT.
As they were leaving the
meeting, the duo wondered why
all students couldn't get the
benefit of the specialized kind
of instruction they had just
planned for a few. They decided
on the spot to see what they
could do.
Their idea was to focus on a
particular part of the test, or
type of question, and create
short lessons to help students
increase their comprehension of
the material to be presented,
and sharpen their approach to
test taking. Each teacher teach-
es only one lesson, but over the
course of two weeks, teaches
every class.
For example, Debbie Wood,
assistant principal,, is teaching
research and reference, while
biology teacher Angie Mann is
teaching cause and effect.
While academic work is the
main emphasis, Eshelman and
Lewis added a special touch.
They didn't want want to just moti-
vate students, they wanted to


He hadn't sold that lot.
As it turns out, clerks had
warranty deeds stating Lutwak
sold other lots in Sun 'N Lake
that he hadn't sold. To Property
Appraiser Raymond McIntyre,
it appeared one of two things
happened: It was either a simple
mistake or someone tried to
obtain property with false war-
ranty deeds.
The warratity deeds were all
dated July 1, 2004, and record-
ed on Feb. 1. They were pre-
pared and purchased by George
C. Davis out of Fort Lauderdale
and had signatures of Lutwak
and his wife. Mick Grosh,
director of Land Management
and Development for Sun 'N


Lake, said he got Lutwak to
send him a signature for com-
parison, and it doesn't match
up.
Since the mistake first came
to light, Lutwak has received
notice of Davis transferring his
lots back to him as of Feb.
11.
Grosh said Sun 'N Lake
would never have known about
the mistake until after the prop-
erty appraiser, sends an annual
tax roll report on CD-ROM.
Sun 'N Lake uses that report to
make assessments.
Sheriff's offices in both
Broward and Highlands coun-
ties are looking into the matter,


goal of 20 Shelter Boxes


Now our goal is to be able to
send 20," he said.
He said some people in the
community have been generous
enough to donate the entire cost
of a Shelter Box $900.
Every penny that is collected
in this drive is being sent direct-
ly to benefit the tsunami vic-
tims, Andrews stressed.

"This tragedy is so huge that
we will continue to collect
funds and send them to Shelter
Box USA for as long as neces-
sary," he said, adding he hopes
to be able to buy the other three
shelter boxes to make the club's
goal by the end of February.
Shelter Boxes are large green
heavy-duty plastic boxes that
each contain a 10-by-20-foot,

and the drill instructors wear

At first, the women wanted
to call the coordinated effort
"Boot Camp." But the term
boot camp has acquired a nega-
tive meaning among young
people, because troubled teens
are so often sent to boot camps.
Instead, Eshelman and Lewis

Any donations for the tsuna-

during the hurricanes by flood-

"We're so very grateful. It's

Eshelman laughs, "We're

since most of the notary work
appeared to have been done in
Broward County, but some was
in Highlands County. There
were several warranty deeds
done by Davis, and some by a
man named Aaron Lyons, who
allegedly bought a lot from a
couple in Port Dover, Canada.
That sale was also disputed.
Lyons was listed as a witness
on several sales made by Davis.
Another man with a similar
name, Rohan Lyons, was the
witness on the property alleged-


ly bought from the Lutwaks.
Almost every sale had the same
notary public.

Office, Criminal Investigations.
"It's amazing to me. You work
hard and find a piece of proper-

-someone else has put a house
on it. It boggles the mind."

Right now Detective John
Barcinas is working the case.


As to whether the sales are
legitimate or not, Chess said the
matter is still under investiga-
tion.

Chess said.

Santa Rosa Hotel sold


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The Santa
Rosa Hotel again has new own-
ers. Realtor Jeff Ludwig would
only disclose that it was an
Qrlando investment firm that
plans to restore the historic
property as a hotel.
"They're looking for accom-
modation properties in. Florida
to restore and rehabilitate,"
Ludwig said. "We were fortu-
nate enough to hook them up
with the Santa Rosa."
The deal is set to close
Friday.
Current owners Phil and Jean
Ropp closed the deal in August
2003 with then-owners Don
and Jan Bowden to become just
the third owners of the land-
mark red brick building in
August 2003.
They worked on cleaning
and painting the historic hotel,
bringing along seven daughters
ranging from the 20-year-old
Rachel to 6-year-old Martha
who did everything from paint-
ing to taking care of guests.
However, not all of their
employees were so good. The
Ropps reportedly had a sub-
stantial amount of money
embezzled from them by one of
their former workers. That case

to Michigan.
"We're going back home to
be near the four kids that decid-
ed not to move south and settle
in Sebring. They still consider
northern Michigan home," Jean
Ropp said.
As to whether or not the cou-
ple would go back into the hotel
business she said "probably
not."
She said the new owners
would have a bit of work to do
when they took over the land-
mark hotel on Ridgewood
Drive near the Sebring
Parkway.
"We lost about a third of the
roof in Hurricane Jeanne," she
said.
That resulted in 10 of the
guest rooms being destroyed as
well as some of the public areas
on the second and third floor of
the building.
"It was all due to water intru-

Students learn about Lake Placid history


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID On Feb.
15 and 16, as in past years, the
Lake Placid Depot Museum
invited the second and fourth
grades of the Lake Placid
Elementary School and Lake
Country. School to tour the
museum, where demonstrations
of pioneer life in Lake Placid
were exemplified.
The tour started at the Bank
Robbery Mural on the corner of
Interlake Boulevard and Main
Street. Jean Parrish, whose hus-
band, Grady, was the little boy
who ran for the town marshal
and helped foil the robbery, told
each class the story. From there,
the students, teachers and chap-
erons walked the short distance
to the depot, where they were
greeted by Museum
Coordinator Evelyn Hays. She
guided them to the Laundry
Days exhibit on the Portico
where Sonny Stalls, Historical
Society president was hard at
work scrubbing clothes on an
old washboard. Red, long-han-
dled underwear hung from the
clothesline. A cast iron kettle
hung from a sturdy tripod near-
by, where handmade lye soap
had been made. Also on the
portico, John Moody bent over
the old grinding wheel sharpen-
ing an axe. It seemed primitive
to the children, but it made
them realize that it is possible to
get work done even without
electricity.
Once inside the museum, the
classes met Nancy Schild, who
showed them quilting examples
and explained how pioneers
put scraps of cloth together to
help them keep warm. Leaving
this station, the groups then
heard Betty Ray Roberts talk
about the first settlers in the
area. She herself is a descendant
of the Lastingers, early day res-
idents.
In the next room, students
came upon Thelma Rhoades, a
former school teacher, who let
them write their own name with
the old dipping pens used
before fountain pens or ball-
point pens were heard of.
Following the tour into Hoy
room, they heard Margaret
Ford busily sewing pot holders

museum. This year the amount was more than $50, mostly in pennies. The museum exists largely from
donations, having no tax money involved in the financing, therefore, the contribution of this class is espe-
cially welcome.


on a treadle sewing machine,
again using no electricity to get
the job done. A new exhibit at
the museum is a 1940s Hope
Chest, explained by Janet Price.
The Lane cedar chest is fitted
out with many of the necessary
items a young lady would need
to start housekeeping those
days.
Colene Hammonds was wait-
ing in the Memorial Room to
show the children a number of
cooking tricks used by early
Lake Placid ladies, including a
vintage cook stove with a col-
lection of pots and pans from
the 1920s. And to go along with
the cooking theme, Maxine
Kelley was making butter in a
small glass butter churn. Dot
Bates helped spread the butter
on a cracker for each student.
Once back outside, the class-
es clamored into the caboose to
get a look at life as it was for the
men working on the railroad.
Fletcher Hays pointed out the
details of the caboose, includ-
ing the built-in table and the
high chairs that face either way
so the railroad men could watch
the tracks as they rolled along.
Ronald Rhoades stood by the
old town jail, ready to "lock up"
any misbehaving youth. The jail
is an open-air unit that really
was one to two identical units
used in the early '20s.


To finish the experience, Dot
Hogan and Kay Thomas were
ready with orange juice and
cookies to refresh the young-
sters as they prepared to return
to their schools. Also on hand to


assist were Marie Oxer and
Clarice Cannon. At the erid of
the two days, every voliTteer
agreed that Demonstration
Days are as much fun fpr- the
workers as for the students.'.

Measure feet before buying shoes


The old adage, if the shoe
fits, wear it, may be taken too
lightly by some Americans
according to a recent survey
conducted by the American
Podiatric Medical Association.
When close to 1,000 U.S. adults
were asked if they have their
feet measured before buying
new shoes, 66 percent respond-
ed they did not. It's a statistic
that raises concern with many
podiatrists because it could
mean that people are not buying
shoes that fit properly.
"As we age, our feet can
increase in size, especially in
width," said APMA podiatrist
Dr. Arnold Ravick. "It's impor-
tant to have our feet measured
before buying shoes because
there are so many factors that
can impact the size of our feet
and the fit of shoes."
Foot swelling, pregnancy and
the shoe manufacturer are some
factors that can impact the way
a shoe fits. Your feet tend to
swell a little during the day; it's
best to buy shoes later in the
day when your feet are in this
condition. During pregnancy a
hormone is released that felaxes
ligaments in the body including
the feet. It's common for a
pregnant woman's feet to grow
anywhere from one to two
sizes. Lastly, not all shoes are
made the same. For example,
someone who wears a size eight
in one brand of shoe could wear

'Remember, a
shoe that doesn't fit
properly can lead to
foot pain," Ravick
said. "A shoe that is
too narrow can lead
to hammertoes, FoOT
bunions, corns and
calluses. A shoe that Olga Li
is too small can
cause blisters,
ingrown toe nails and even lead
to back pain."
To help consumers avoid foot
problems and to insure a good
fit, the APMA recommends 10
simple steps:
1. Shop for shoes later in the
day.
2. Have your feet measured
while you're standing.
3. Try to select a shoe with a
leather upper, stiff heel counter,
appropriate cushioning, and
flexibility at the ball of the foot.
4. Be sure shoes fit well -

- to distribute weight.
5, Buy shoes that
don't pinch your toes,
either at the tips, or
across the toe box.
6. Always try on
both shoes, and walk
around the store.
7. Always buy for
the larger foot; feet
are seldom precisely
the same size.
8. Don't buy shoes
that need a "break-in"
shoes should be com-


fortable immediately.
9. Try on shoes while you're
wearing the same type of socks
or stockings you expect to wear
with the shoes.
10. If you wear prescription
orthotics biome ucanical
inserts prescribed by a podiatric
physician you should take
them along to shoe fittings.

Do you

By CHRIS LEVERIDGE
Sebring High School
If you're a student-athlete
who loves to compete, consider
this when choosing a college.
College gives you a chance to
enhance your skills in many
ways. Sports should be just one
of the many perspectives you
scrutinize when selecting a col-
lege.
When selecting a college it is
important to select the school
that best meets your education
needs. Does the school offer the
academic program that you are
looking for? Are you interested
in attending a university or a
college? Do you prefer a small
town setting or a bustling city
with lots of energy? Do you
want to attend a college or uni-
versity within miles of your
hometown or a different part of
the world?
While in high school you



A night


out on a


hog hunt
By JENNA PONTIUS
Sebring High School
Recently I went to a hog hunt
with my mom. It was held at
The Preserves.
When I got back from help-
ing Benny Banda unlock the
gate that the hunters were going
into, my mom was standing
there with the group of hunters.
Richard Hernandez and Dustin
"Cornbread" Green offered to
take me with them. We first
headed over to gate 6. We rode
in Cornbread's truck all the way
to the back fence. We then
released three of their four
dogs.
Richard's other dog had been
injured the night before, while
wrestling with the hog they
caught and was in the truck
recovering from his battle
wounds.
I have never been hog hunt-
ing, or any kind of hunting for
that matter before, so I didn't
have any idea what to expect.
Once they put the dogs on the
ground we got back in the truck
and followed them.
The dogs listened to their
masters very well. Every time
one would wander off, all they
would have to do is yell for
them and they would come
back. After about an hour of rid-
ing around behind the dogs I
asked if they thought we were
ever going to find one.
Richard said "Yea, but we
have to wait until 8:15 because
that's what time they start feed-
ing because that's what the
magazine said and they are usu-
ally about 95 percent right."
We loaded the dogs back up
and left gate 6 and rode down to


have what it takes?


may have been a dominant
player on your team, perhaps a
leading scorer, or maybe a
multi-sport athlete. While those
things and others qualify you,
you should remain self-con-
scious of your abilities as well
as your competitors.
The key thing about playing
college level sports: It's going
to be very different. The com-
petition at the college level rais-
es the level of intensity, and to
participate on college sport
teams your level of skills and
talent must be exceedingly
high.
If you plan on playing sports
in college, you'll need to com-
pare your size with the size of
the average player on the col-
lege teams) you would like to
play for. Determine if you are
the right size to play a certain
position. Afterwards, contrast
the strength, speed, endurance,


and coordination of yourself
and your fellow teammates.
College coaches often consider
foot and lateral movement
essential.
Furthermore, you should
estimate your level of mental
discipline and self-confidence.
Do you have what it takes to
perform well under pressure.
One way to prove this principle
to yourself and college coaches
is to do well academically.
Good grades impress the coach-
es and keep you in the running.
If you are interested in
attending NCAA Division I, II,
or III colleges, you can benefit
by becoming familiar with their
rules and regulations. Instead of
focusing on a college that can
lead to a career in the pros, con-
sider the following statistics.
Out of about one million high-
school football players and
nearly 550,000 basketball play-


ers, only about 250 make it to
the NFL, and just 50 make it to
an NBA team. Less than three
percent of college seniors will
play one year in the profession-
al basketball league.
The odds are against high-
school football players who
want to "make it pro." In depth,
the odds are 6,000 to 1. The
odds for a high-school basket-
ball player "making it" is about
10,000 to. 1.
Even though the statistics are
shocking and somewhat
degrading, stay attentive to
reality and explore your
options.
There are plenty of careers
that offer fun, money, and
charisma. Statistics simply
imply what has happened.
You could be the one who
"makes it" if you have what it
takes.


EDITOR'S NOTE: The follow-
ing is a fictional story.

By NOELLE JOHNSON
Sebring High School
What if you had a friend who
lived at the school, but you had
no clue.
You may not know it, but
there is a boy at SHS that has
lived in every room on school
campus. By day he goes to
school as a normal boy. But by
night he sleeps in any place that
is open.
His parents moved to
Antarctica, and forgot him. He
stayed in school, not wanting to
ruin his chances of becoming a
stunt double. Every time stu-
dents dropped food on the floor,
or left it unattended; the want-
to-be stunt double would flip
over chairs to collect any parti-
cles of food left behind.
Most students think he is
normal, but when they ask him
where he lives he says every-
where. Never does he give an
exact location.
The weird thing. is he wears
the same thing everyday. When
students ask him why he
replies, "I like them! Plus I
wash them everyday."
He is speaking literally.
When evening roles around he
will shower in the girls' locker


room with his clothes on. He
thinks the boys' locker room
smells like rotten fish.
Therefore he won't go in there.
In order to get his clothes dry
he sits under the blow dryer for
hours.
Once dry, he sneaks into the
back door of the lunchroom, to
raid the kitchen. He loves the
school's pork chops so he fries
them up.
As the night progresses, he
sneaks into an open room to
watch his favorite reality show,
"The Next Top Model."
Now he eventually will find
a comfortable place in the
school to do 30 minutes of
Greek Yoga. He believes that he
will become spiritually relaxed.
Now when it comes to sleep-
ing his favorite place is camp-
ing on top of the lunchroom
rooftop and falls asleep gazing
at the stars.
The first bell informs him it's
time to wake up. Almost every-
day he is late, but none of his
teachers care.
Do you believe this could
happen?
Could a boy actually live at
this school?
Ask him when you see him,
he walks among you all, or does
he?


SHS dance team



finishes first


By SHANNON GILLILAN
Sebring High School
Coming back from a defeat is
never an easy thing to do.
However, the Sebring High
School dance team did that and
more at their most recent com-
petition.
The Sebring High School
dance team competed at the
Florida State Fair in Tampa on
Feb. 13. The competition was at'
the new, and very large, Ford
Amphitheater at the fair-
grounds. They were in a catego-
ry against three other teams.
Sebring had a very strong
and enthusiastic performance.
The team finished first. For
their win, they received a large
trophy, $1,400 for the team, and
each member got their own
gold medal.
After that kind of perform-
ance, it really shows what hard
work can do for a team. They.


encountered some problems at
a prior competition but were
able to persevere and win a
championship. The team was
kind of down after the last com-
petition (finished fifth), but
were able to pick up their spir-
its and come back with even
more.
At the State Championships
in Jacksonville, Shannon
Gillilan, Theo Shannon, Kaila
Bateman, Ashley Richardson,
Sara Schmidt, and Lisa Taylor
were named All-American..
They have the chance to per-,

High school is just a


popularity contest, and

gate 2. The gate was locked
because you can't get your
vehicle through there so we
decided to walk instead. This
time we brought all four dogs
with us.

We walked for what seemed
like forever in water and mud.
Finally, the dogs started barking
and it happened to be right
around the time Richard said
we would start finding them.
We ran toward where we
heard the dogs barking and we
ended up at the back fence,
which we were not allowed to
pass. We decided to let the hog
go because no one was really in
the mood to get arrested that
night. We called their dogs, and
they finally came back. After
letting the dogs sniff around for
a little while we decided to put
the dogs back up and go back to


gate 6.
After a while of riding
around with the dogs on the
ground they started barking
again. Everyone jumped out of
the truck and went to where the
dogs were. We figured out the
hogs were not too stupid
because again it ran over the
fence.


After that we didn't
have much more luck
and we went back to the
main area to share our
stories. We told every-
one how we ran two
hogs and we soon found
out that a group of peo-
ple actually caught one,
Richard and
Cornbread had been out
hunting for a while so
they decided to call it a
night. I sat by the fire
and listened to the rest


of the hunters' stories as they
came in.
I want to thank Richard and
Cornbread for taking me with
them because I know no one
wanted the "girl" to slow them
down. If you're reading this
guys, I had a great time and am
ready to go again so give me a
call!

By KRISTIN ANGELL
Sebring High School
In my four years of high
school, I have come across a
few things.
If you go out on a date with
someone, the entire school will
know about it within a week.
You will probably not remain
friends with your best friend
forever from middle school.
But, the most important thing
I have learned at Sebring High
School was not something I
read about in books. -I discov-
ered that high school is nothing
more than a popularity contest.
Since my
ed ... freshman
the expenses of year I have
ut a damper on a tried to fit
he Sebnng High in with the
nment dress sale cool crowd.
2. Help out local I wanted so
by donating like- badly to be
HS between 8:30 accepted,
ng dresses until but in the
I girl become the end I real-
ized there is
shoes and acces- more to life
than fitting


I lost so much time with my
true friends because I was too
busy trying to make the most
popular kids in school notice
me. Sometimes I thought I was-
n't good enough t6 be a part of
the popularity contest. I began
questioning myself and won-
dering if I could ever fit in.
Luckily for me, I realized that
my behavior was childish and
uncalled for.
I did not write this story to
poke fun at the popularity con-
test winners. I wanted to get my
story out so future high school
students will know the truth.
In high school, you have a
very small amount of people
you can consider your friends.
Your peers will focus more on
gossip than the bigger picture.
According to the most popu-
lar people in school, if you
don't have the looks, then you
don't have what it takes to be
known as a cool kid. In my
mind, you shouldn't sacrifice
your personality for people who
won't care about you in the end.


Now is the time to

plan for their future.

Legends


champ to


defend


Cup title
Special to the News-Sun
The Florida Legends Series
is returning to Avon Park for the
fifth annual Rotary Legends
Challenge, Saturday and
Sunday.
Headlining the driver entry
list is Patrick Conrad, the
defending race winner and
series pro champion. Conrad is
attempting something that has
not been accomplished in the
history of the Legends
Challenge, that is to become the
first repeat champion.
One realizes how important it
is to win the Rotary Cup when
Conrad's resume is known and
that he is back this year to
become a repeat winner.
Conrad is a 17-year-old in
the 11th grade at East Ridge
High School in Clermont. Even
though he is only a teenager his
racing career goes back to Oct.
13, 1995, when he entered his
first Quarter Midget race in
Apopka.
"I started the race second
from the back, but ended up fin-
ishing in second place," he said.
"It was truly a great feeling, and
that's when I realized I loved
racing. In my second race I fin-
ished in first place."
It was obvious that Conrad
had some natural talent, but
winning has been a family
affair for the Conrads.

Patrick Conrad, in the No. 2 car, hopes to defend his title as winner of the Rotary Legends Challenge this
weekend, and as series pro champion. The Legends race is Saturday and Sunday at the Avon Park High
School football field.


His dad, Harold, turns the
wrenches while his mother,
Paula, keeps the business going.
Patrick Conrad continued to
race quarter midgets around the
United States through 2002,
competing in events from
Alabama to Pennsylvania. By
2002, when he was only 15
years old, Conrad had 276 wins,
656 top fives and 1,051 top 10
finishes.
In 2003 Conrad moved up to
Legends Cars. As a "rookie"
Conrad became the Desoto
Super Speedway Legends Track
Champion, the Florida Semi-
Pro Champion and finished
third in the Lowes Motor
Speedway Summer Shoot-Out
featuring the best Legends driv-
ers in the nation. The 2004 sea-
son produced more victories


and this time the Pro
Championship for Florida
Legends.
Once again Conrad has
moved up, this time to Super
Late Model stock cars. Again
in his "rookie" year Conrad vis-
ited the winner's circle with
two wins at. Orlando
Speedworld.
What are his dreams for the
future? Like most young guns
he hopes to some day race in
NASCAR's Nextel Cup Series.
"Obviously, having the
opportunity to test my skill
against the top drivers in the
world would be a dream come
true," he said
Helping Conrad to get to that
level is a friendship he has
established with NASCAR vet-
eran, Mark Martin.


Emergency Conservation Program sign up extended


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County has been granted an
extension for the Emergency
Conservation Program, accord-
ing to Diane Conway, county
executive director for
Highlands County Farm
Service Agency. Producers
may apply for assistance
through March 11.
USDA Farm Service
Agency's Emergency


Conservation Program provides
emergency funding and techni-
cal assistance for farmers and
ranchers to rehabilitate farm-
land damaged by natural disas-
ters and for carrying out emer-
gency water conservation
measures in periods of severe
drought. Funding for ECP is
appropriated by Congress.
There are four emergency
conservation practices available
to Highlands County producers:


Debris removal from farm-
land,
Restoring permanent
fences,
Restoring conservation
structures, and
Grading, shaping; and re-
leveling.

For more information, visit
the Farm Service Agency office
in Sebring aj 4507- Geonc-
Blvd or call 385-7853, ext. 2,


Early in his career, he com-
peted in quarter midgets against
Matt Martin, Mark's son. While
watching his son compete,
Martin noticed Conrad's ability
and the two have been friends
ever since.
Because of that relationship,
Conrad was given an audition
driving a Craftsman Truck
belonging to Roush Racing.
Even with a full season of
Late Model racing scheduled
the Rotary Legends' Challenge
is one race where Conrad wants
to get back into a Legends Car
and go for a repeat win. It will
not be easy as a line up of more
than 30 cars is anticipated
including feature winners from
Florida, Georgia and South
Carolina.
The fifth annual Rotary
Legends Challenge will be run
at the Avon Park High School
Football Stadium on Saturda)
and Sunday. Saturday's racing
begins at 7 p.m. under the lights
and a full slate of races will be
presented again on Sunda)
beginning at 2 p.m. Tickets for
both days are only $10 (chil-
dren under 9 are free with an
adult) and may be purchased at

Herring re-elected as chief judge


Special to the News-Sun
The Circuit and County
Judges of the 10th Judicial
Circuit, (Highlands, Hardee and
Polk counties) have re-elected
Circuit Judge Ronald A.
Herring of Lakeland, as the
chief judge of the circuit for the
two-year term beginning July 1.
Upon his re-election, Herring
stated, "I want to thank my fel-
low judges for their confidence
and support in electing me to
serve another two-year term as
their chief judge. The most
pressing issue to face the courts
at this time is the need for addi-
tional judges. The need for
seven additional judges has


been certified by the Supreme
Court and it is hoped the
Florida Legislature will provide
the necessary funding. We are
also working with the county to
obtain additional courthouse
space to support the continual
growth of court-related func-
tions."
The chief judge exercises
administrative supervision over
all courts within the circuit.
Among his duties as chief
judge, he must implement an
administrative plan that will
effect the timely disposition of
cases, control over court dock-
ets and the assignment of
judges.

ROMONA WASHINGTON

Sports Editor


To the next level
When Allon Fish announced his retirement as the
Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce executive vice
president, it was hard to imagine the Sebring chamber
without Fish around.
But the chamber's executive board took the time that
Fish gave it to interview a list of about 40 applicants,
making its final choice recently and a good choice it
made.
Lifelong Sebring resident Dan Andrews has been
tapped as the new executive vice president/chief execu-
tive officer of the Greater Sebring Chamber of
Commerce.
Andrews takes over officially March 1, just in time for
Race Week. In fact, his first event will be the Historic
Sports Car Racing weekend March 4, 5 and 6.
He helped manage that even for six years, so it's
almost like coming home for him.
In fact, Andrews believes one of the major reasons he
.was selected was his background in the community as
well as his ability to "hit the ground running." And in one
sense he has already done just that.
As the new chamber director and with the county's
largest event less than a month away, Andrews does not
have time to wait until he officially takes office. He has
been spreading goodwill around the county and attending
a number of functions even before his March 1 start date.
In addition to the HSR races, the chamber will be stag-
ing the Grand Prix Ball in cooperation with the Sebring
International Raceway Museum and will have its annual
Ride the Racetrack event on the Sunday before Race
Week.
In fact, Andrews is face that is quite familiar around
Highlands County, especially the. Sebring area.
Most recently an associate at Carlson Accounting,
Andrews has been a small businessman in Highlands
County for many years and was a former chamber board
member.
Sebring Chamber of Commerce president Mike Carter
termed Andrews "the best fit."
"Over the past 10 years he has developed into a
tremendous community leader and we all look forward to
him taking the chamber to the next level," Carter said of
Andrews.
Currently, Andrews serves as the president of the
Rotary Club of Sebring and vice president of the Ridge
Trails Association. .,
- At 30 years old, Andrews might be the youngest per-
son to hold the executive vice president's job for the
chamber.
We have to agree with Carter. Andrews is a tremen-
dous community leader. His record speaks for itself. He
cAn and, we are sure, will take the chamber to the next
level.

ism, especially in America, to play the part of an

electric light in a dark alley.'
ERNEST S. SIMPSON, managing editor, San Francisco Call, 1909


The kids in their cars with
their loud speakers are bad
enough. The race track and
stunt planes contribute to the
noise. This live fire bombing
only adds insult to injury.
Having been a US Marine
during the Vietnam era, the
sound of bombs brings back
bad memories for me.
As you know, many people
come to Sebring and other parts
of Highlands County because
of the peace, quiet and serenity
of the area. The orange groves,


golf courses, many retirement
1- communities and other ameni-
re ties that dot the county,
rs account for the increase in the
d county population and add to
;s the quality of life in the com-
d munity. I like this area instead
- of either coast, where it is much
i- busier, noisy and the traffic is a
d mess.
s, Much was said in the recent
d newspaper article about the
e safety issues that hadn't been
q addressed-by the military and
g of the adverse environmental
e impact to the area. I'm sure
e there are many people in the
I- community with far more
expertise in those areas than I,
so I will leave that to them. If
d there is one thing I know about,
it is real estate and economic
g development.
e Owning my own real estate
I- company and being an active
e real. estate broker, economic
d development'consultant nation-
e ally and a former mayor of
f Springdale, Ohio, I can assure
you and the other members of
t the' county commission and
e anyone else that has an interest
)t in the long-term development
i- of the area, that this increased
use of the bombing range can
n only have an adverse impact to
g the continued development of
the county. You may as well put
up a federal prison on U. S. 27
at Jackson lake. The negative
,, impact to development 'and
growth in the area would be the
same.
o The seasonal influx of visi-
tors that come here annually,
n the "Snow Birds," do not want
at to spend their winters in an area
s that is nosier than their homes
e up north. Fear of a misguided
d bomb or crashing aircraft or
, some other accident will deter
- many from locating in the area.
k That's not good for the local
- economy. They could spend
their money on new homes in
t other areas of the state just as
g easily as they do here. I'm sur-
, prised the local board of real-
e tors haven't reacted to this
- issue.
e We all know that the military
n needs to train their pilots. But
e as it has been said since George
a Washington's time. "Not in my
, backyard." There has to be a
s better place than here.
I am attaching an article that
was printed by the Associated
s Press today. The article speaks
of the 425 base closures. It
0 would appear that the Avon
Park Bombing Range may be
used much more than is cur-
rently being reported by the
military.
The elected county officials
n of Highlands County, our area
congressmen, senators and
state officials need to act as a
r group to fight this proposal
- while they can. Once it is in
s place, it will be too late to do
something about it. The time to
mount a campaign against this
is now.
Please represent the people
of Highlands County on this
issue.

MURPHY'S LAW
Lindsey N. Murphy

Domesticated

just in time
Honestly, I really hate to be
the first one to admit it, but I
think that I am actually grow-
ing up.
It is a scary concept that at
times makes me wish that I
have a bottle labeled "Peter Pan
Potion" that just allows me to
be a child forever.
But, I know that idea is noth-
ing but a dream.
What leads me to this deci-
sion of finally growing up are
the recent events in my life. I
have applied to colleges for this
next August. But, my friends,
the shock of moving out of my
parents' house was just the least
of my dilemmas.
For, it seems to me that
through this one year staying at
home to attend the local
Harvard on the Highway has
(dun, dun, dun ...) domesticated
me!
This comes as a real stunner
to not only me, but the rest of
my family. After all, I was the
one who preached for a good
year straight that I, their oldest
daughter, am quite an inde-
pendent soul. I remember the
conversations that took place of
me almost constantly saying,
"Yes, but I am an adult now and
I think I can figure it out on my
own." .
With time comes a bit of
knowledge.. These days, I
refuse to say those words any
longer. Because, come to find
out, I have much to learn. Only
the first bit of it has started
these last few weeks.
Now, let me tell you some-
thing; I never realized how
much my Momma did for me
until I started to do it myself.
I decided that I should begin
to learn how to do the necessi-
ties of the house. You know, the
laundry, the dishes,. the cook-
ing. These chores (that I man-
aged to get out of for the last 19
years) aren't as horrible as,,I
thought that they would be. .
The other night, believe it or
not, I made dinner. (And, it was
not the occasional peanut-b- /
ter and jelly sandwich tha7 I.
like to pass as supper). It Was
dinner with all the trimmiligs/
The bread, the drink (Kool-Aid
counts, right?), and yes, the fet&
tuccine alfredo. All the while,
the laundry was getting washed
and the dishes were being
cleaned.
(I do understand that there
are many folks who have done
this since the beginning of their
lives. To ya'll, I just want to say
please don't bust my bubble.
For this is a huge step for the
girl who could only make slice-
and-bake cookies for years. I
might be able to get up to your
level of expertise, but it will
take time.)
You know, I guess it means
that I can take "Find a cook"
off of my "to-do" list for when-
ever I go off to college. After
all, before you know it, I might
be entering that cook-athon or I
might be making your dinner.
Not all that scary anymore, is
it?

E-mail reveals some news \

that apparently didn't fit


1 9 It


Every once in a .
while we get news
tips in the office.
They have come to
be known as "didja

Sometimes they
ask if we were aware
of an interesting per-
son in the communi-
ty, perhaps a new BEI
business adventure or FRI
an unusual happen-

Sometimes they .
are rumors that can-
not be substantiated but some-
times they turn into interesting
stories.
Last week I received a "didja
know" e-mail from an alert
reader that I found interesting
inasmuch as that although I fol-
low the news pretty closely I
hadn't heard of any of it.
It went like this:
"Did you know thaf 47 coun-
tries have re-established their

"Did you know that the Iraqi
government employs 1.2 mil-
lion Iraqi people?
"Did you know that 3,100

seemed to be the alert e-mail-

reporting all of the bad things
that have been happening in
Iraq, they have neglected to
report some of the good things
as well.
And here I was always under
the opinion that went with fair

Or, maybe I just missed it.

Filling holes

key to Avon

Park's season
BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun Correspondent
AVON PARK The story
is compelling from district
champions to holding position
auditions.
The Devils start 2005
launching the old-fashioned
rebuilding year with four
starters returning, a new game
plan and a brand-new member
of the coaching staff.
Head coach Mort Jackson
has been earning his paycheck.
"We've got some good
young kids and we've got some
good leftovers from last year,"
Jackson said. "We've got four
starters from last year back and
we've got to replace five guys
and, you know, you move on."
Last year, the Devils were
district champions and provid-
ed six players to the All-County
team. Only one is returning.
New-found infielder Billy
Dobson, who was also a third
team All-State selection after
batting .450 in his junior year"
as a center fielder, second-best
in the county behind Sebring
alum Wisley Correa (.453).
But without a clear-cut home
run threat, Jackson has had to
improvise and coach the little
things for the first time in
years.
"Any time you start over, it's
go back to the fundamentals
and make sure that they know
the basics of the game and
that's where you start. As they
get better in the season you can
add -more and more," Jackson
said. "But I'm. excited, the kids
are excited and it's a new start."
"The main thing is going to
be for us is -the fundamentals
and be error free, don't make
mistakes," Dobson agreed.
"Get good pitching and don't
make- mistakes. I mean, we
don't have to score seven runs a
game with good pitching."
One of Jackson's first priori-
ties during this past summer
was working with pitchers and

Blue Streaks, Red Devils both


struggle in Early Bird openers


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK The Blue
Streaks started strong in
Tuesday's season-opening
game against Lake Region.
Unfortunately for them,
Thunder pitcher Za'cK'Bove fin-
ished even stronger. *s
Bove, W'ho gave up'two runs
on two hits in the first inning,
settled down and allowed just
two more hits the rest of the
way and picked up all seven of
his strikeouts over the final
three innings as Lake Region
rallied for a 6-2 win in the first
game of the Jarrett Ford Early
Bird Tournament at Head Field.
Sebring took a 2-0 lead on an


RBI double from Kiko
Vazquez, who stole home on a
double steal following Chaz
Abeln's single, but Bove shut
the Streaks down the rest of the
way with the exception of Tony
Vazquez, who got the other two
" Sebring hits with a fourth-
inning single and a double in
the sixtl.
"It looked like we got to
looking for a curveball with two
strikes, and you can't do that,"
Sebring coach Hoppy Rewis
said. "We pressed a little bit.
We're like a lot of teams: We've
got a lot of youth, and it's going
to be a slow process, but you
only have to win the last game
to be great.


That youth showed itself in
the bottom of the first when
Lake Region got three runs on
singles from Cody Hatmaker
and Kevin Kok along with an
error, a walk and a run-scoring
balk.
Jeff Stewart's two-run single
in the fifth was the key blow in
the Thunder's second three-run
inning of the game, the only
blemish on what was a pretty
solid relief effort for Sebring by
Chris Welborn, who came on to
start the fourth in relief of
starter Dusty Campbell.
Welborn followed Stewart's hit
with two of his four strikeouts
to get out of the jam, but the

Sebring could

make another

run in playoffs
BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING With very lit-
tle effort and probably very lit-
tle imagination, it would be
possible to envision head coach
Hoppy Rewis deliriously happy
with the outcome of this season
at Sebring.
In fact, it wouldn't be hard
for the casual fan to see the
Streaks deep into the state play-
offs again because they look
just as strong as last year's
team that reached the regional
championship for the second
time in five years.
The Streaks led Highlands
County in just about every sta-
tistical category possible in
2004, including wins with 24.
And as luck would have it, sev-
eral of the key players from
that team will be returning to
the roster, including All-
County selections Ryan
Williams, Kiko Vazquez and
Chaz Abeln.
"We'd like to think
(Williams and Vazquez) would
have a good year, their senior
year," Rewis said. "But we
don't want to put a whole lot of
pressure on them. We expect
them to step up like any sen-
iors."
Williams led the county in
home runs (five), Vazquez led
in walks (23), while Abeln's
nine saves were also a best.
Vazquez is also the llth-
ranked first baseman in the
nation and the 133rd prospect
overall according to tea-
monebaseball.com.
And with Dusty Campbell-.
filling the void wheraPlPe(t if,:
the Year Wisley Correa used to'
be in the batting order, it's
obvious hitting will be the least
of Rewis' problems.
During their two preseason
games, the Streaks put up 16
runs, including a 13-2 win over

Class 4A Boys Basketball State Playoffs

Blue Streaks ready for challenge


of facing No. 1-ranked Lakewood



BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING The Blue Streaks could not be
any more ready.
Fresh from winning the District 14-4A tourna-
ment championship with a 42-34 victory over
Lehigh in Englewood on Saturday, Sebring now
welcomes Class 4A No. 1 St. Petersburg
Lakewood into Blue Streak Gym for the playoff
opener at 7 p.m. Thursday night.
"You wouldn't believe the energy that we
have. This is big for us," Sebring head coach
Princeton Harris said. "This team here loves chal-
lenges. This is a challenge for us, one of the
biggest challenges that they'll face in their lives,


and I think they're going to step up to the plate
for it.
The Spartans (27-2) were upset in the District
13 final 93-84 by tournament host and state No.
13 Sarasota Booker, and Harris believes his No.
15 Streaks (22-5) are capable of the same feat.
"Watching Lakewood on Friday night, in
watching them, they're not as deep as us, they're
not as big as us," Harris said. "I don't want to say
that they're overrated, because they have some
great athletes on the team, but if you can handle
Lakewood's pressure, press, and you box them
out, (because) they've got athletes who crash the

SEBRING Maybe it's
an omen.
By getting upset in the
145-pound finals of the
Region 3-1A meet Saturday
night, Sebring's Blake
Germaine will get to see a
familiar face staring at him
when he takes the mat for his
opening-round match in the
state finals at the Lakeland
Center on Thursday.
David Deaton of Panama
City-Bay was the same oppo-
nent Germaine had in the first
round of last year's state tour-
nament, which ended with
Germaine wrestling for the
140-pound state champi-
onship. And, if Germaine can
win that match and one more,
he's likely to see another
repeat opponent from last
year in Victor Porter from
Crawfordville-Wakulla.
Germaine beat both of
those wrestlers last year -
although 'he nearly lost to
Deaton before rallying late -
and hopes the fact he'll be in
the same bracket with them
this year means more success
for him at state.
"Hopefully it goes the
same way, except for the end
result," Germaine said, refer-
ring to his loss in the finals.
"That would be all right."
Of course, last year
Germaine came into the state
tourney as a regional champi-
on, something he was expect-
ed to do again this time
around until Jamie
Hemingway of Fort Myers-
Riverdale stunned him in the

final with a 4-3 defeat.
"It woke him up, that's for
sure;" Sebring coach Dave
Cunningham said of
Germaine's loss. "His head
really wasn't ready for the
match. I think there were so
many people there talking to
him and I think he was a little
overconfident. He hasn't
been pushed a lot."
Germaine agreed that the
loss just his second of the
year was a definite wake-
up call.
"After I couldn't take him
down and couldn't get my
shot, I got flustered," he said.
"I couldn't get my takedown
at the end."
Despite the setback,
Germaine is still a favorite to
finish in the top six and earn a
medal and, according to
Cunningham, the other two

EARLY
Continued from 1B
Streaks couldn't rally.
"I think we're thinking so
much, we can't play," Rewis
said. "We've got them thinking
too much, and that's normal
when you've got a lot of youth
out there. They're trying to do
everything right instead of just
playing the game."
Sebastian River 10
Avon Park 1
By CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
The youthful Red Devils did
little Tuesday night to answer
the questions surrounding their
inexperience.
Avon Park was held without
a baserunner through four
innings and committed four
errors while Sebastian River
piled up 12 total hits in a 10-1
rout for the Sharks in the first
day of the Early Bird tourney.
Josh Young (1-0) mastered
the Devil bats, striking out eight
while walking only one in five
innings for the win. Michael
Diaz, who had come in as a
defensive replacement in the
top of the fifth, doubled in the
bottom of the inning to break up
the perfect and later scored the
only Avon Park run on a
groundout.
The only other hit for the
Devils came in the seventh off
the bat of Billy Dobson, who
absorbed the loss on the mound
after allowing five earned runs
in four innings of work.
Evan Cook was the primary
wrecking ball for Sebastian
River, going 4-for-4 with three

RBIs. Tanner Keeler put the
first run on the board with a
homer to left in the second, and
followed with a single in the
third. Chris Tayor went 2-for-4,
as did Tim Jobe, who relieved
Young on the mound in the final
two innings.


Chavious Gordon pitched
two innings of relief for Avon
Park, giving ,up two hits and
two runs, one of which was
earned.
Scott Green then threw the
final inning and gave up three
hits and two runs, both earned.


The torch has been passed.
When I was growing up, I
thought every time I picked up
a ball, it would be the occasion
upon which some heretofore
unearthed talent emerged, set-
ting me in motion toward a pro
sports career.
Of course, nothing like that
has happened, and seeing as
how I'm 25 now, somehow I
think nothing is going to.
So rather than pin my hopes
on becoming the Grandma
Moses of sports, I can now
shift focus on my nephew,
Walter Franklin Caudle IV,
born to my sister on Monday.
Now, neither of Franklin's
parents are into sports, so it's
up to me, his only uncle, to
mentor him. In the grand tradi-
tion of Richard Williams, Mary
Marinovich and the really
annoying parent at the soccer
game, I have it all planned out.
First, and most importantly,
Franklin will not be eating any
vegetables or drinking any
milk. I never did as a kid, and
yet, at 6-foot-1, I'm the tallest
member of my entire extended
family. So there, science!
Every chance I get to visit
Franklin, we will of course be
playing catch. I'm sure it will
be difficult for him to develop
proper throwing technique
while still unable to walk, but
the benefits will pay off in the
long run.
After I use my connections


TIME OUT

Chuck Myron

in sports journalism to put
every one of Franklin's high
school basketball games on
national television, therefore
creating speculation'that he
will be the NBA's top draft
pick at the age of 18, I will call
a press conference to announce
that he has instead accepted a
full ride to Penn.
Why Penn? Because they
play football at Franklin Field,
of course, and because it is an
Ivy League school. The Ivy
League does not offer athletic
scholarships, but this will be
no hindrance for Franklin, who
will say, when I allow him to
speak at his press conference,
that he owes all of his intelli-
gence to his uncle.
Though his father will prob-
ably take exception to this
notion, and his mother, I'm
sure, will remind me that she
and I share the same genetics,
therefore meaning Franklin


more directly inherited his
smarts from her, and not me,
the court of public opinion,
having become well-acquaint-
ed with yours truly by then,
will no doubt rule otherwise.
It is publicity, after all,
which will fuel The Franklin
Caudle Show. After graduating
with honors from Penn, and
becoming the first person to
ever to make the NBA All-Star
Game, the Major League
Baseball All-Star Game and
the Pro Bowl, it'll be endorse-
ments out the wazoo. Not just
for Franklin, but for me, too.
You see, Franklin will be
such a transcendent star that
even the people around him
will be famous. And filthy rich
because of it. 'One can become
wealthy if they inherit a for-
tune from their uncle, but
uncles can first build those for-
tunes on the backs of their
nephews.
This is precisely what could
happen for me. I might also get
a call one day from Franklin,
letting me know he's not even
trying out for his middle
school team because it would
get in the way of his activities
with the chess club and the
debate team.
And I would be just as
proud.

first at bat and a grand slam by
Williams.
With Sebring still in the bas-
ketball playoffs, the Streaks
will still have some changing to
do when Blake Sanders returns
with center fielder A.C. Wilson.
"I wouldn't be surprised if
A.C. could go out there and
catch a fly ball on the first day,
but how long it takes to where
he can hit the pitching, who
- knows?" Rewis said. "So that's
an unknown and the other one
that's coming is Blake and (he)
can play, but how long will it
take to get him to catch up and
get up to speed?"
Rounding out the outfield
will be Jeromy Berish,
Campbell and Drew Bishop.
Graduation took its biggest
toll on the mound for Sebring,
grabbing Rewis' two best
starters in Bruce Beumel and
Will Pyle, but the fifth-year
coach remains adamant about
his confidence in juniors Rudy

boards, they're beatable. That's
what I told my guys."
Lakewood is led by last
year's second-team all-state
guard Sean Morrison, the final
remaining link to the school's
2002 state championship team,
and rugged 6-foot-5 forward
Mario Telfair. The Streaks
counter with a balanced attack
that keeps opponents guessing.
"It's hard to plan for," Harris
said of his team. "You're key-
ing on stopping one guy, and
you've got four other ones who
are capable of hurting you at
any one time, and then you've
got three or four guys coming
off the bench who can come
and contribute and add more
depth to the team."


Levocz and Chris Welbornm, as
well as Vazquez.
"We've got people who've
pitched their whole lives,"
Rewis said. "We don't know
what everybody's role is right
now, but we've got about five
good arms and just the biggest
thing for us will be throwing
strikes. If we can throw strikes
and not go deep in the count, I
think it'll really help us."
Abeln will also return as the
closer in his sophomore year,
although he could spending
most of the game catching.
"If (Abelfi) wasn't catching, I
could probably tell you exactly
what we're going to do," Rewis
said. "But sitting back there two
nights in a row, catching two
games and then you try to
(pitch) is tough. And it all
depends on what (other catcher)
J.C. (Shoop) does. The better he
gets then the better we get."
Sebring will also have
Campbell and Colt Williams to
use on the mound.
"I've never seen anyone hit
Dusty one time through that
lineup," Rewis said. "He

added Seth Lambert from Warner Southern as a-
pitching coach.
"We graduated all three of our starting pitchers
last year and nine seniors, so this was just a good
time to bring him in," said Jackson. "We needed
a pitching coach and I have done it in the past but
this was just a chance to get a good young guy,
who was excited about the game."
"This new pitching coach we've got has been
working with us a lot and got us looking a lot bet-
ter than what we did," Dobson said. "So that'll
help us out a lotand a lot of people are moving
up from where they were in pitching just working
with this guy."
Jackson also had to fill the gaps in his starting
lineup.
"Well, we've got to find a catcher, a second
baseman, a left fielder, a right fielder," Jackson
said. "But our third baseman is back, our first'
baseman is back and a couple of our outfielders.
But other than that, like I said, we've got four
guys that played last year that are back."


always does well one time
through. And that's what we're
going to ask him to do is pitch
one inning here, two innings
there; give us some good
innings.
"With Colt, it is just a matter
of throwing strikes. They're not
going to hit him, so we've got a
lot of options there. I don't see
pitching being a weakness for
us."
Colt Williams will also be in
one of the few position battles
at second base with sophomore
Ryan Williams.
"Second base is a big'battle
right now, probably more so
than anything," said Rewis.
"And the good part is it's a bat-
tle but we feel confident with
either one of them. Whether it's
Colt or Ryan and they've both
played well."
After reaching the regional
final last season, Rewis got as
close as he had ever been to a
championship as a baseball
coach. That, however, may
become outdated after this cam-
paign.


had to travel to Lakewood and
they beat us over there; this
year they've got to come to us,
so we hope the tide has
changed."
Harris also made it clear the
Streaks will enter with an atti-
tude of more than just hope.
"You just take it as 'It's just
another team.' They've got five
players and we've got five play-
ers, and we're going to put 10
on the court and go at-it," he
said. "I'm not changing any-
thing we do as a team. We're
going to still do the same things
that we do."
Indeed, Harris is certain the
Streaks can at least come close.
"You're not just going to see
a blowout. It won't be a
blowout, I guarantee you that,"
he said. "It's going to be a dog-
fight, all 32 minutes of the
game."


This season's Early Bird tournament will most
likely clean up a lot of questions the Devils have,
especially the pitching situation that will be more
of a cut-and-paste job with Robert Lewis being
the ace and lefty Johnny Sedlock behind him.
Jackson also plans to use Dobson in the rotation
as well as Chavious Gordon.
Receiving those tosses will be catchers Luke
Sedlock and Paul Conrad, the first of numerous
and scattered position battles for the Devils.
Some will be cleared up this week. Some
won't. But .four seniors from last year's district
championship team will now have to lead after
falling short the previous season.
"The four seniors I have back are a lot hungri-
er and so are some of the younger kids who.were
here," Jackson said. "You know, it makes you
work harder, it makes the kids realize where they
have to be and it was just we didn't do the things
we needed to do (last year)."
"It makes you want it a lot more because you
were that close to it and it just pushes you more
because you know how far you have to go to get
to the next level," Dobson said. But you never
really know until that first game."


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Brian McCreary looks for an opening against Kevin Sanchez of Riverdale in the 135-pound consolation
finals Saturday night at South Florida Community College.


STATE
Continued from 1B
with him could do the same
thing.
Dillon McGovern beat
Mickey Clay of LaBelle, 4-2, in
the 160-pound consolation
finals Saturday to earn a second
straight trip to state and Brian
McCreary was a double-over-
time winner over Kevin
Sanchez of Riverdale in the
135-pound consolation final to
finish third and earn his first
trip to state.
"They all have pretty decent
draws," Cunningham said. "I
think there's a chance for all
three to place (top six). There's
only one place we're looking
for for Blake. When you're run-
ner-up, there's only one place to
go."
McGovern thinks.the fact he
made it to Lakeland last year,
when he finished one win short
of a medal, will serve him well.
"I'm a little more prepared,"
he said. "You've got to walk out
on 12 mats instead of four mats,
so it's a little bit different. It's
an experience, but it's fun."
McGovern also likes the fact
he did better at state last year
than did his first-round oppo-
nent, Carlos Friger of Miami-
Archbishop Caroll.
McCreary, on the other hand,
doesn't have that kind of expe-
rience to draw on since he
failed to make weight at the
regional last season, missing a
chance to qualify as a junior. He
said he hasn't asked his two
teammates for any pointers yet.

"We haven't talked about it
... other than to (tell me to)
make weight," McCreary said
with a smile.
MCreary faces Andy
Millburn of Green Cove
Springs-Clay in the first round,
and said,the nerves will disap-
pear once he hits the mat.
"I'm going to wrestle it like
any other match," he said, "Just
go there and do my best."
One thing that might help


McCreary is the chance to see
the Lakeland Center early.
"We're going over the night
before because the arena's open
and we can work out,"
Cunningham said. "It's not as
quite as important for Blake and
Dillon because they've been
there ... you walk in and there's
12 mats and the big arena and
it's kind of overwhelming."
Thursday's opening-round
matches start at noon.

fresh herbs

If you find yourself buying a whole bunch of fresh herbs
every time a recipe calls for one tablespoon, try
these helpful freezing tips:


For fresh parsley, chives or basil, rinse,
shake and pat dry; then finely chop and
freeze in an airtight container for up to 3
months.

For fresh basil or rosemary, freeze in water
in ice cube trays, then transfer into a freezer
bag. (to season a soup or sauce, just throw

in a cube!)
