Governor wants Floridians


prepared for terrorist attacks


By PHIL ATTINGER
A ,
SEBRING Floridians do a good
job of preparing each year for hurri-
canes, but not terrorism.
"We found, as <\e did surveys.
while some; prepare for hurricanes,
they don't prepare for a possible ter-
rorist attack," Larry Long. public.
information officer with FDLE, said
Friday.
Out of 400 people surs eed b\ the
Florida Department of Lawi
Enforcement. only 12 had a plan on
what to do in case of a terrorist
Attack. Nationally. onl. 5 percent are
prepared.
To deal \sith this, state and local-
agencies are launching a new domes-
tic secunty awareness campaign on
MondaN. entitled "Informed.
Prepared, Protected."
Governor Jeb Bush will 'hold a
press conference'and a "table-top"
natural disaster exercise on Monday
to kick-off the campaign.


Another press conference ith ,.Ii --pared for terrorist events since Sept.


South'iv. .t Florida Dunestic S-cucri;'.
Task Force will take place at 10:30
a.m. Monday at Palm Beach
Boulevard and Marsh Avenue (U-
Save parking lot): 4191 Palm Beach
BlId., Fort Myers.
Funded by the Department of
homeland Securitb, "Informed.
Prepared., Protected" includes
brochures in English and Spanish;
radio public ser ice announcements
in English. Spanish and Creole; tele-
vision public service announcements
in English and Spanish: outdoor
advertising on billboards, mall
kiosks, and bus shelters, and a Web
site: wii'.mysafetloriida.org.
SState agencies %working together
on the campaign include the
Department of Emergency
Management. Department of
Communir- Affairs. Department of,
Health and the Flonda Department of,
Lawj Enforcement.
Public safety agencies have pre-


11. 2001. with niulti'-aenc' e\ercis-
es and equipment upgrades. Go\. Jeb.
Bush has been taking steps to ensure
this. Long said.
Pack
The first thing, people need. Long
said, is a kit, much like a hurricane
kit, but kept stocked year-round.
Naturally, the kit wound need a
gallon of water per person per day for
three days. non-perishable food items
- such as canned food or military
"Meals, Ready to Eat" flashlights
and radios with fresh battenes. extra
cash and clothing.
Those with prescription medicines
should have a stock that \won't run
out or go out of date. People with
infants or pet- will need bab) food
and diapers, or pet food.
Long said people can add such
items as dust masks, plastic sheeting
and duct tape for a terrorist attack.

As they drove through Avon
Park they went on a curious
whim to watch the, Rotary's
annual short-track racing.


They were sold.
Actually. they were buying
a $5.000 used Bandolero, a
fully-enclosed racing trailer to
:haul the race car. and a new
truck capable of pulling the
trailer.
"That as just one of those
spontaneous things." Amy
Campbell said. "We enjoyed
%watching the events. We
enjoy ed talking to those racers,
that's how ii started."
Despite the competition on
the track, Gerald's mom, said
the.pits are a friendly place,

increases

Plans summit for solutions
By PHIL ATlTNGER
,'i I 's-S.,ll
SEBRING Highlands CountY's booming
housing market has a burst bubble:
ULnaffordable housing.
Wage increases hate been single digit per-
.centages for some time. County Commissioner
Bob Bullard said. Housing cost increases have
been in the double digits.
"Wages are nowhere near keeping up with the
increases in housing." Bullard said.
As a result, the county has trouble' keeping its
inost talented people and attracting new work-
ers
To deal with this. Bullard has scheduled a
,workforce attainable housing summit at the
March 14 county commission meeting.
As a member of the Century Conmirussion for
a Sustainable Florida, he has learned the number
one problem all Florinda counties and cities face
is attainable and %workforce housing
."The. say they wish they had started working
on this sshen we sere where we are," Bullard
Said. ..
He wants to attack theproblem from both
sides: Wages and housing stock.
Wages and salary
Highlands Count's a\ erage indic idual annu-
al income in 2003 was $21.353. according to the
Economic De'elopment Commission's 2005-
2006 county profile.
Hosweer. Penny Philhppi. housing coordina-
tor said houses are averaging $189.t)00, out of
reach of moderate income people.
Homes that previously cost $75.000 run
S,$150.000. she said. are often older homes in
deteriorated neighborhoods. New homes cost as
much as $225.000 or more.
To compensate, Phillippi may increase the
local State Housing Initiative Partnership mort-
gage, but moderate income families can't afford
higher monthly payments.
A smart route is to build a home, Phillippi
said, but the price of a buildable lot has driven
up the cost tremendously.
At least one company told Louise England,
executive director of the Economic
Development Commission, that it had trouble
attracting executive staff and workers to the
area, because of housing.
England is working to attract jobs that pay 15
percent more than the as erage wage. The coun-
ty is gradually bringing that a erage up. Bullard
said.

Safety program to be introduced at inspection


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
SEBRING Nothing is
more valuable than the life of a
child infants, toddlers, and
small children depend on their
parents or guardians to protect
them.
Unfortunately, in spite of
their efforts, many times pre-
cious lives are lost in car acci-
dents every day, or children are
injured because they are not
properly restrained in suitable
car seats.
Parents are often unaware of
the little details that can make a
difference between life and
death.
Maryanne Higgins, head of
the car seat program at the
Highlands County Health
Department, said, "When we
have our car seat inspections
(offered three or four times a
year), 95 percent of those we
inspect are installed incorrectly,
making the child unsafe." She is
also a childbirth educator and
lactation consultant.
Emphasizing the danger of
this, she further stated that if a
vehicle travels at 50 mph and
crashes into another car, the
force of that crash would throw
an unrestrained 20-pound baby
forward with the velocity of a
1,000-pound object.
When she first started work-
ing at the department Higgins
was asked if she wanted to
become a car seat technician, to
which she consented. "I had to
go for four days of.classes fol-
lowed by a test." she said. "I
couldn't imagine how it could
take four days to learn about car
seats. There's just a lot more to
know about it than people real-
ize."
According to Higgins, the car
seat has to be so secure and fas-
tened in so tightly that it actual-
ly becomes like a part of the car
itself.
Car seats will be available for
people to purchase for a dona-
tion of $20 each.
The 300 car seats were made
available through a grant from
the Department of
Transportation. Some convert-
ible seats will be sold for babies
from five to 80 pounds, to be
used rear-facing up to 20
pounds and 12 months, then
turned toward frontward.


SEBI
863/38


Others are high back boosters
for babies 30-80 pounds.
"Children should always be
in a restraining seat until they
are 80 pounds," Higgins said.
The upcoming Child Safety
Seat Checkup at the Highlands
County Health Department in
Sebring from 10 a.m. to noon
Friday, Feb. 17. will be a col-
laborative effort through a part-
nership between the Highlands
County Health Department:
Highlands County Community
Traffic Safety Team: Avon
Park, Sebring and L.ake Placid
police departments; and the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office.
Those who attend can expect
to see Toby's Clowns, hear
story book reading from the
Sebring Public Library's Born
to Read program, YMCA and
Women Infants and Children
representatives, Epilepsy
Services offering entertain-
ment, information, and other
goodies.
This time, however, there
will, also be an added new
dimension to the event as the
Women's Club of Sebring will
be introducing a new program
to the county.
W.H.A.L.E. (We Have A
Little Emergency) is a safety
program sponsored by the
Florida Federation of Women's
Clubs through One Voice for
Children.
This program was developed
for the purpose of providing
-critical information about chil-
dren in car seats for emergency
rescue personnel, in the event
that a driver of a vehicle carry-
ing an infant or small child is
incapacitated in an accident.
"The program has been
adopted in 32 states so far,"
Sebring Women's Club member
Barbara Black said. A kit with
two WHALE logo stickers, to
be placed on the rear side win-
dows of the vehicle, two logo
stickers for the sides of the car
seat, one containing informa-
tion to be placed on the back of
the seat, and a clear cling logo
sticker for the rear window are
given to each participant.
The side window, stickers
(which are bright yellow), and
the rear sticker, allow emer-
gency medical technicians to
know right away to look on the

back of the car seat for infor-
mation about the child name,
date of birth,, medical history,
and an emergency contact.
The women are excited about
the, program, knowing that it
can make a big difference.
Mary Brenner of the Sebring
Women's Club encouraged par-
ents to come 6ut, saying, "I
think everybody with a child in
a car seat should be responsible
to have one of them for their
children." She said that even
though she doesn't have a baby,
she has a car seat for her pet
dog. "They make them for,
pets," she said. "I care about my
pet and without the restraint she
could fly forward and get hurt if
I stop suddenly."
Higgins, wishing that more
people would take advantage of
this opportunity, as well as the
monthly child seat classes held
at the Health Department, said,
"Parents should spend a little
time learning about safety
because of the importance to
the child and how unfortunate it
would be to lose a child over
something so casil) prevent
ble."

How do you judge



a funeral home?


When choosing a funeral home you can compare costs,
you can compare facilities, you can compare staff.

But the most important factor to weigh is the service.
After all, that's what you will truly appreciate and remember longest.

Independent living apartments open in Sebring


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING A home is
more than where your heart is.
It's security and stability.
It's empowerment.
The Volunteers of America of
Florida opened its second
Highlands County residential
community Thursday. in
Sebring on Queen Palm
Avenue.
In addition to the two apart-
ment-styled complexes,
Volunteers also have five indi-
vidual units scattered among
: the community.
"Without a roof over their
heads, I don't care what kind of
services you provide them. It's
not going to help," Jack
Kuharek, of Substance Abuse
and Mental Health District 14,
said during the ribbon cutting
ceremony. "Without Volunteers
of America, Highlands County
would not have clean, safe and
affordable housing."
The 14-unit, single-story
apartment building is anchored
in the center by its Community
Center, a place where the resi-
dents can socialize.
All but two of the apartments
are occupied by mentally hand-
icapped citizens who are func-
tional enough to hold jobs but
haven't fully developed inde-
pendent living skills.
Volunteers has programs
throughout the state to help
homeless veterans, the elderly,
and those with mental illness,
said Wendy Whitescarver, com-
munications manager.
Queen Palm was the third to
open this year and the organiza-
tiron hja seven such facilities in
Florida.
"The whole idea is to get
them back into the community,"
Edward B. Quill, director of
external affairs, said. "To help
:them. be in. a position to- give
back to the community."
Through Housing and Urban
Development grants, the
Section 8-11 stibsidized hous-
ing is built once an organization
like Volunteers can show that
the host community will sup-

community for the mentally challenged. The exposed plumbing under the sink is not due to lack of funds
or an oversight by a carpenter this unit is designed for a wheelthair-bound resident.

the apartments.
"It meets the needs of our
community," he said after walk-
ing out of an apartment that, to
the untrained eye, would have
appeared unfinished.
Where cabinets would have
occupied the space under the
kitchen and bathroom sinks, the
plumbing was left exposed.
A wheelchair-friendly apart-
ment, the open spaces allow for
maneuverability. Hand rails in
the bathroom and an open-floor
shower stall with a plastic lawn
chair also facilitate independ-
ence;
"I hope We get more like
this," Bullard told Volunteers
President and CEO Kathy


Spearman.
He invited Spearman to

imarlBob BullardhIhelped to6 cut 'Housing ,-Summit"' -during
the ribbon then touredd sdne' of which the county will learn


about the "best practices"
across the nation.
"Our need for affordable,
workforce housing is growing
exponentially," Bullard said.
Whitescarver said the resi-
dents at Queen Palm will pay
no more than 30 percent of their
Income in rent. If they lose a job
they're not put out on the street.
Likewise, she said, a client
who moves up the workforce
ladder isn't forced-to leave just
because his or her .income-
increases.
If an advancement proves
stable; there comes a time when
the resident will want to move
to a place where they can fur-
ther. improve their quality of
life, Whitescarver said, noting
that that's something most peo-
ple do.

By:John Atkinson
In April 2004, I had an episode
where my head seemed
scrambled. I heard buzzing and
called my son saying I couldn't
breath. I was then sent in for 5
bypass surgeries and a kidney
stent. Surprisingly enough, even
after all of these procedures, no
one knew that my carotid arteries,
silently, were blocked.
Last November, I went to another
Disney health fair where I found
out my blood pressure was
exceeding 244. I was immediately
sent to Celebration Hospital,
where it was stabilized. Through
all of this I had no other symp-
toms. My family doctor prescribed
additional medications to stabi-
lize blood pressure.
On January 27, 2005, I received a
carotid artery ultrasound for Walt
Disney Employees at the DC ware-
house in Orlando, performed by
HealthFair USA at Port Orleans. I
did not know I had any potential
for stroke until my, ultrasound
with HealthFair USA. The techni-
cian who screened me was very
concerned and told me to follow
up with my doctor immediately! It
was hard to believe, because I had
no symptoms and I felt fine. I was
sent to a vascular surgeon who
performed surgery on me in April,
.2005.
I have been with Walt Disney
World for 15 years, and I am so
thankful for this testing because I
have two children and five grand-
children that need a grandfather. I
am now telling everyone I know
to get preventative screening. I
even tap on co-workers'necks and
say; "I'd get it checked!" They
might not remember what I. said,
but they'll remember what I
did.
Thank you, HealthFair USA, for
giving this 61-year-old a chance to
see his grandchildren grow up.

SUN 'N LAKE IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT
ANNUAL REPORT FOR LANDOWNER'S MEETING
JANUARY 27, 2006
2006 Address: Annual Report for (2005)
Honorable Chair, Board Members, Landowners and Guests,
Good Morning:
In accordance with Section 9-110 of the Sun 'n Lake of Sebring Improvement District's Charter, I am pleased to present the 2005 Annual
Report and State of the District on behalf of the Board of Supervisors.
For the Sui 'n Lake of Sebring Improvement District the year 2005 will be remembered as the year that our governmental structure was rede-
fined-and a new direction charted.
This was the year that the Board of Supervisors and the citizens chose to move into the future with a local General Manager overseeing our
three management alliances with Kitson and Partners, National Recreational Properties, and Severn Trent Service. This was also the year that
our community began to grow and seek positive relationships with other communities and the county. This was the year of change.
The year 2005 was the year that Kitson & Partners began to have a major and positive impact on the management and operations of the golf
courses and restaurant.
This was the break out year for NRPI with the beginning of installation of infrastructure that led to housing construction, completion of engi-
neering studies, as well as, continued commitment to fund community projects.
This year also brought Severn Trent Services to the forefront with renewed direction and continuing its oversight of administration, financial,
and customer service now including public works and utility functions.
Over the next several years great opportunities are unfolding for the District with its alliance partners.
District Governance
District governance is now headed in a new different direction. The District revamped its governance structure and hired a new full-time
General Manager reporting directly to the Board of Supervisors with full responsibility for oversight of the three management contracts. Certain
key employees became District employees reporting to the General Manager. The GM is now responsible, as the District's Chief Executive, to
manage each of the management alliance partner's individual contracts and ensure contract commitments and requirements are met.
The GM will also be responsible for recasting good working relationships with the County Commissioners and Administrators; each of the
three surrounding cities, the various Federal, State and County agencies, as well as the South Florida Community College and the business
community:
This combined with a desire by the Board for the GM to inform the community through frequent and regular community newsletters, upgrades
to the District internet site and a future District survey, communications overall is a priority for the current District GM and Staff.
The Board direction in the future will include forging ahead with open communications and good working relations with each of these, groups
as well as the alliance partners.
Kitson & Partners contract
Kitson & Partners showed great advances in service to the District and its golf community. This year the District has seen major infrastructure
improvements made to the golf courses, on-going maintenance has been substantially improved, and food operations have'been streamlined.
In adopting its 2005-2006 budget, the District has placed the Golf and Restaurant operation on a sound financial footing with minimal funding
being provided by the District.
Golf and Restaurant Operations
Golf Maintenance
Golf course playing conditions on both courses have significantly improved over the past year. Focus has been upon re-establishing a strong
turf root system by using state-of-the-art cultural practices and increased fertility. These practices have resulted in reduced instances of para-
site infestation, thus producing a healthier root structure in our Bermuda grass subsurface. I
Over the past 12 months, by implementing more aggressive management techniques, savings have been realized in golf course maintenance
expenses and in developing a more efficient work force. Putting into place a more accurate record of vehicle maintenance has resulted in more
timely'repairs to equipment, .
On the front side of Turtle Run Golf Course a longstanding problem with poor drainage was corrected this year. Twenty two low lying areas in
the fairways were filled in and re-grassed. There is every indication that the problem has been eliminated.
Golf O rations
At the beginning of the season the golf membership at the country club was 414. There were 70 new members since Kitson and Partners
assumed the golf operation in late 2004. This was an increase.of 27 family memberships and 16 single memberships in less than 8 months.
,Unfortunately, at the beginning of this season the club lost a total of 74 memberships due to leave of absence, resignation due to health, age
or residential relocations. The total in 2005 stands at 340 overall.
Kitson and Partners has begun adjusting its revenue and expenditure budgets, and is adjusting its marketing strategy to replace lost revenue
with new memberships, tournament, hotel, and guest play. They are also continuing to work with developers and builders to increase member-
ship sales to homebuyers. .
-Restaurant and Lounge Operations
In the area of restaurant and lounge management Kitson has moved forward. The "19th Hole" continues to be the gathering place for many
residents and members. The restaurant continues to offer daily lunch and dinner specials along with great happy hour specials.
The restaurant continues to be a favorite place to hold weddings, parties, corporate and community events. Throughout 2005 there were
numerous community events and functions held in the restaurant.
A new and very successful event in 2005 was the 4th of July Celebration which was held at the Clubhouse area. The event included profes-
sional barbecue teams cooking fresh BBQ for the crowd followed by a dramatic fireworks' display. An estimated 2,000 residents and friends of
the community attended the event.
More specifically Kitson, as the District's alliance partner, has shown great promise and results in their short time here. We expect that the
progress made on golf and restaurant management will continue in 2006 with more positive outcomes.
NRPI contract
With regard to land development the alliance with NRPI was the first major change of 2005. The January 27th 2005 execution of the contract
with National Recreational Properties, Incorporated (NRPI) to serve as the master developer for the District was a new direction for the
District. In general terms, the agreement provided for the transfer of several thousand lots to NRPI who in turn paid back taxes and bond
assessments owed on the properties. This resulted in a one-time cash infusion to the District to reflect the payment of unpaid assessments
,and will result in an on-going improvement in the collection of maintenance and bond assessments for the properties'again returned to the
assessment roll.
Additionally, the contract provided for the payment by NRPI of certain golf course and utility debts; county real estate taxes and also called for
the payment of loans made by the General Fund for previous golf course operational deficits.
NRPI has pledged funds and engineering studies for the construction of a new golf course clubhouse, wastewater treatment plant and is
assisting the District in the development of a master plan for a new "town center".
The District will also be seeking Requests for Proposals relating to the development of a Master Plan and Development for a new
Town Center. NRPI will assist in the development of this initiative.
NRPI is also moving forward with the development of infrastructure in Unit 12, as well as, the sale oi i,:, itrrourighour, Di- iriid uni:. 4 18,
and 25 and, to adlesser.extent Units 8,10, 11, and 12 haveall seen infrastructure progress this year wa iir,, Tnv ioni-imre il3downr,r. in3flv
seeing that the possibility :1 buildirig on Iheir lots is achievable. Units 4, 18, and 25 have received Vwae,i- ew,,i aind uridergrioun,1 poric ,ir, the
last 9 months. The initial I r r,cw ,nm- promised by NRPI are under construction in these units at this time by Moranda Homes. The
future of development with NRPI will be an exciting direction for the District.
Severn Trent contract
In April, 2005, the District signed a contract with Severp Trent Management Services to provide financial, administrative and customer service
functions for the District,
In November, 2005, the District expanded the contract with Severn Trent to assume the operational responsibility for the public works and util-
ity functions of the District on January 1, 2006.
Financial Administration
Due in part to each of these changes the past year has been a beneficial one for the District's solvency and stability. Over'the past year, both
the financial administration and fiscal condition of the District have been improved and stabilized. Enhancements have been made to the
District's assessment billing system allowing the District to be more responsive to inquiries with real time information and.more accurate in
properly applying payments.
Financial Trends
At'fiscal year ending September 30, 2005, based on unaudited financial statements, the District's cash position increased to over $2.2 million
from $18,000 the prior year.- Maintenance assessment collections increased by over $538,0CO it1 $2 36? 108 and lial assessment-collections
increased by over $5.6 million to.over $6.9 million. In comparison, total expenses increased )y ii million For irn, year-ending, revenue '
over expenses amounted to $2.7 million.
It should be noted that some of these revenues are a one-time payment that reflect the pay-off of overdue assessments that had been delin-
quent for several years.
Hurricane Related Expenses
During the fiscal year, the District received over $474,000 in hurricane related reimbursements from District-insurance and the Federal
Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for the damages caused in 2004. In addition, a one-time special assessment brought in $291,688
during the fiscal year allowing for the establishment of a restricted'fund reserve for future disaster related expenses.
Public Works and Utilities
The District Public Works andUtilities have focused upon recovery and repair to damage caused by the three hurricanes in the summer and
fall of 2004. Additional projects underway include seeking Request for Proposals for an outside engineering firm to conduct an appraisal and
condition assessment for the entire infrastructure of the District realizing that much of the District infrastructure is aging and in need of
planned replacement or repair. Issuance of new bonds relating to the construction of infrastructure (roads, water and sewer) for two portions
of Unit 16 is underway.
Another major focus for the Board in the next fiscal year will be in cooperation with others to'develop master plans relating to water, sewer,
drainage, roads and wastewater re-use in the District.
Public Satfet
The last area but certainly one of the most important areas of District services is the Sun 'n Lake Public Safety Department. The Department
has completed a very busy and successful year in 2005. Many achievements were notable in each of the department areas including Fire
Department, Security Services, Code Enforcement and Community Affairs. .
Fire Department
The District's Fire Department currently employs 11 part-time firefighters and 5 volunteer firemen. In addition the Department is supplemented
by personnel from other Highlands County Fire Departments through a mutual and automatic response agreement.
The 2005 year proved to be successful In fire prevention efforts. There was only one major structure fire ini the District in 2005 on Navarre.
Avenue resulting In no substantial damage due to a quick response. There were no major brush fires in the District as a direct result of the
State of Florida Department of Forestry's efforts conducting controlled burns in various areas of the district throughout the year.
The District Fire Department responded to 481 calls in 2004, slightly more than in the previous 12 month period. Of the 481 call, 306 were for
medical emergencies. The time for response by the Department has improved from 4.36 minutes during "on duty" time to 4.28 minutes. "Off
duty" response time showed a slight increase but still very good response at 9.0 minutes from 8.90 minutes.
Mutual aid service was activated 146 times. Of this number, 122 were for SNL giving assistance, 24 were for SNL receiving services from
other Departments. '
Security Services
in addition to its routine security patrols, Security Services has expanded its role of responsibility in several areas including the prevention of
illegal uses of the District utilities and attempting to limit the use of off-road vehicles in the undeveloped areas of the District.
There was one major crime involving a Burglary of over $10,000 in value at a Manor Hill residence. There were no other crimes or fraudulent
activities reported in the District. There was an increase in residential property crimes such as construction site thefts, thefts from vehicles,
golf course.vandalism, criminal trespass, miscellaneous vandalism and underage drinking.
Traffic studies were conducted based on complaints regarding safety issues on Granada and Ponce De Leon Boulevards. Based on the recom-
mendations in the studies, speed limits were lowered and three traffic-calming devices and various stop signs at intersections were installed.
Code Enforcement
Since January 1 2005, Code Enforcement has Issued 132 warnings. These calls involve warnings regardingtall grass, weeds and debris; unli-
censed or Inoperable vehicles; RV, boat & trailer placement; commercial vehicles in residential areas; violation of water use restrictions and
other miscellaneous warnings. Of the 132 there are 5 still active cases and 2 cases pending due to complainants being outside of the United
States and Unavailable.

this Flash From the Past of
Dec. 18, 1969.

AVON PARK Who says
Avon Park High School doesn't
have a superior band? If you
said so, you'd better change it,
because APHS band made a
superior rating at district con-
test.
Twenty-four bands attended
from four counties. Only six
bands out of the 24 made
"straight superiors" and Avon
Park was one of them. All three


*






judges gave the band a superior,
rating. Ratings Xre: First place,
Superior; Second place,
Excellent; Third place, Good;
Fourth place, Fair; and Fifth
place, Poor.
The band had to stafid
inspection prior to marching. It
was inspected on uniforms,
instruments and military. It
received "superior" on inspec-
tions. One judge commented
that, "the band was a well-
groomed group and wore their
uniforms with pride."
After inspection the band
marched. A band has to 'be on
the field not less than five min-
utes and not more than eight
minutes, or a penalty of one
division lower is given the
band. A band has to spend one
half of the time playing while
marching.
The marching band is judged
by, three judges on:, Playing -
volume and playing in 'tune
.with a correct balance of all
instruments. Marching preci-
sion, straight lines, etc.
Showmanship variety of
show, continuity, appeal to
audience.
APHS band was fortunate to
have the audience give them a
standing ovation. For the
band's final number they
pla',ed "America the
Beautiful." As the band played,
the verse was read over the P.A.
system; then the lights went out
and the band members had on
red, white and blue hat lights. A
spotlight came on the American
Flag and the Color Guard; also
fireworks were shot off at the
end.

Kenilworth hosts inaugural chocolate festival Saturday


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING People looking
for the perfect for Valentine's
gifts, or a chocolate lover's
dream can visit Kenilworth
Lodge this weekend.
Saturday will mark the
Inaugural Romance &
Chocolate Festival. It runs from
10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb.
11.
For $2 admission, will fea-
ture chocolate galore, Valentine


floral arrangements, couples'.
spa services, couples' photogra-
phy, jewelry, ,, or anything else
to celebrate St. Valentine's Day.
Chocolate exhibits include a
sampling of 16 gourmet dhoco-
lates, a chocolate fountain,
homemade chocolate, a choco-
late coffee bar, chocolate histo-
ry and trivia, and items for sale,
including individual chocolate
bars, gift baskets, and items
designed for Red Hatters.
Kenilworth Lodge will have


a chocolate tasting exhibit
including milk, dark, dark milk
and infused chocolates.
Organizers set it up as a blind
taste test, so participants can
discover their favorite type.
Organizers hope to create a
fun, pampering experience for
ladies and a "one-stop shop" for
men looking to makes their,
Valentines smile.
Tenille Lee, sales manager
for Kenilworth Lodge, said co-,
owner Madge Stewart has


wanted to have a chocolate fes-
tival for a few years. Last
December, they brainstormed
on how to make it a romantic
festival as well.
Participating local merchants
include, among others, Ridge
Florist, Simply Trish Catering,
.Mark Delaney Photography,
Barbara Thayer-Mary Kay
Cosmetics, Jewelry by Krafty
Chix, Back in Touch Day Spa,
;and Kenilworth Lodge.
Floral and balloon arrange-
ments will be available there or
can be ordered for Valentine's


Day.
According to a survey by the
National Confectioners
Association, men tend to prefer
dark chocolate, and women
chose milk chocolate.
Apparently women find milk
chocolate "sexiest," while men
chose truffles and specialty
candy. .
Chocolate facts
Chocolate is closely associat-
ed with romance. It also con-
tains the same flavonoid pheno-
lics found in red wine, and may
be good f, ,r ,',ir heart.


In the United States, the
world's largest producer with
seven billion pounds of choco-
late per year, chocolate candy
outsells all other candy com-
bined, 2 to 1.
U.S. citizens consume, on
average, 10 pounds per year per
person. Not to be outdone, the
Swiss, per person, consume a
whopping 22 pounds per year..

tact Tenille Lee at 385-0111,

Where does chocolate come from?


KEVLN J. SHUTT/Ncws-Sun
Gerald Campbell, 14, shows off his Bandolero as his mom Amy Campbell, watches. Gerald, who's been
racing for half a season, will make his first appearance at the Avon Park Rotary Legends Challenge on
Feb. 25 at Avon Park High School.


The chocolate people eat and drink today
comes from fermented roasted and ground
beans taken from the seed pods of the tropi-
cal cacao tree, Theobroma cacao, native to
Central America, and has an intense bitter
flavor.
Xocoatl
Chocolate residue found a Mayan teapot
suggests Mayans drank chocolate 2,600
years ago. Aztecs associated chocolate with
Xochiquetzal, the goddess of fertility.
New World natives drank chocolate in a
bitter and spicy drink called xocoatl -
often seasoned with vanilla, chile pepper,
achiote annattoo) and pimento that was
believed to fight fatigue.
Throughout pre-Columbian
Mesoamerica, cocoa beans were often used
as currency.
Cocoa
Christopher Columbus brought cocoa
beans back to Spain, but Hernando de Soto
introduced it to Europe. The first comnmer-


cial shipment was from Veracruz to Seville,
Spain, in 1585.
Europeans added sugar and milk to the,
drink to counteract bitterness. They
removed the chili pepper and replaced it
with vanilla. By the 17th century, European
nobility considered it a luxury item.
Chocolate
At the end of the 18th century, solid
chocolate was created in Turin, Italy.
Several sellers and makers improved on the
product by extracting fat to make powdered
cocoa and cocoa butter or by treating.
chocolate with alkali to remove the bitter-
ness.
Daniel Peter, a Swiss candle maker who
joined his father-in-law's chocolate busi-
ness', began experimenting in 1867 with
milk as an ingredient. A neighbor and baby

he said. "I like the feeling of
racing. ... I'm thinking about
how I'm going to pass this guy

Jim Campbell said the family
travels together most weekends
to race at Orlando Speedworld,
a 1/4-mile oval.
The trips can get expensive,
he said, between fuel prices and

"not in,my backyard" attitudes.
People who live in high-density
developments, Bullard said, are
law enforcement, firefighters,

"People here have got to get

from the land bank, state hous-

The county also can put in
safeguards to prevent homes,
condominiums or apartment
complexes from being flipped
in the short term by speculators
to the point they are no longer
affordable.
Plus, Bullard said, develop-

Those resources can then helps
draw more grants for housing.

News Sun correspondent
SEBRING Are you think-
ing about purchasing a new
vehicle? Do you need to have a
lift installed 'for your disabled
family member of friend that
you transport? From start to fin-
ish, owner Randy Johnson of
Randy's Mobility can help you
receive a rebate.
Randy's Mobility is qualified
and has the experience to make
sure all equipment will fit into
the vehicle you are considering
before purchasing it. He knows
all the adaptive equipment.
Based on the type of scooter or
power chair that you use, he can
recommend which specific
vehicle will take your wheel-
* chair ramp or lift that will work
'best for you. He'll provide a
free written estimate based on
your needs, and provide the
forms required. He works with
several dealers and can direct
you to the nearest one. Johnson
will even come to your home
and install the equipment.
After the owner has the lift
installed in the vehicle, he
merely takes it to the dealer
with the forn. The dealer
inspects and vrenifie that the. lift
is installed and' sends in the
paperwork to the manufacturer,
'who usually sends the rebate
within 30 days. Johnson will
even offer financing to help out
until the reimbursement from
the car dealer comes through.
"There's absolutely no pre-
scription required. It is a very
simple process and we help the
customer every step of the
way," Johnson said.
Ford, General Motors and
Toyota give a $1,000 rebate
within a year of the date of your
purchase. Although Johnion

forms, Ford requires the cus-
tomer to call them toll free at
'(800) 952-2248 to request its
form. The company will ask for
the vehicle identification num-
ber,' which is found at the bot-
tom of the front right window.
Chrysler's program is only
available within six months of
the purchase. For Jeeps and
cars, its rebate is $750 and for
vans or trucks, it is $1,000.
Johnson used to do television
repair until TVs became throw-
away's. Then he found himself
repairing chargers and scooters,'
and installing lifts in people's
vehicles and homes. Johnson
has been iin business fi6 23
years 'and although the car


rebate, program has been in
existence for 15 years, every-
one is not familiar with it. He
wants everyone to be aware of
this cooperative program with
car dealers where a customer
can get a rebate from the car
manufacturer for needed
machinery.
"It makes life a little easier
for both the driver and the dis-
abled,",Johnson said.
Randy's Mobility is at
Lakeshore Mall in Sebring. For

Governor recognizes community colleges


AVON PARK South
Florida Community College
could experience an increase in
funding if the Florida
Legislature agrees with Gov.
Jeb Bush's budget recommen-
dations for the upcoming year.
On Wednesday, Bush
released his 2006-07 budget
recommendations to fund
Florida's public education sys-
tem at record levels.
Recognized as playing a critical
role in helping students reach
their career goals, Florida com-
munity college programs will
receive $1.7 billion in funding,
a 58.3 percent increase since
1998-99. To help community
colleges support increased
enrollments, an additional
$338.7 million for capital out-
lay and $19 million in facility
challenge grants were recom-
mended. The budget proposal
ensures that more students will
be able to earn their associates
degrees, as well as increase the
number of students transferring
to state universities.
Under the governor's budget,
community colleges would
receive:
$119.1 million increase
(an increase of 8 percent)
$78 million Operating
increase
$3.8 million Operating
cost of new facilities
$14.4 million Retirement
rate adjustment
$22.2 million Tuition
and fees (student fees are based
on current year enrollment with
5 percent fee increase.)
Targeted baccalaureate
degrees $9.2 million (This is a
$1.2 million increase over the
current year.)
Challenge grants $38
million to fund Dr. Philip
Benjamin Matching Grants and
$19 million to fund facilities
matching grants.
"The governor's recommen-
dation is an important step
toward meeting the challenges
the community colleges face,
although we don't know how


the proposed budget would
translate specifically for South
Florida Community College,"
said Dr. Norm Stephens, SFCC
president. "We must keep in
mind that the Governor,s rec-
ommendations must still be
considered by the Florida
Legislature."
If those recommendations
are approved by the Legislature
in the coming session, the oper-
ating budget increase will great-
ly enhance SFCC's ability to
improve programs, access, and
capacity within the college's tri-
county service district. The col-
lege's construction, renovation,
and remodeling requests would
be funded in total. They include
the balance of the construction
dollars needed for the 51,536
square foot Health and Science
Education Center project that is
poised to break ground in May
2006 and open in August 2007,


as well as additional funds to
cover construction cost escala-
tion, Further, the college would
receive funding to renovate
three of its older buildings
-Nursing (Building T). Science
(Building F) and
Administration (Building C).
The governor's budget pro-
posal also addresses matching
grants. "There is no single thing
more impoilant to OLII luind rais-
ing efforts than the matching
gift program offered by the
state of Florida," said Donald
Appelquist, director ol SFCC
Foundation Inc. Be.. in c of
these programs, we're able to
help donors leverage their phil-
anthropic dollars in ways that
wouldn't otherwise be possible.
We're able to match donations
made for scholarships on a dol-
lar for dollar basis. So, a $1,000
gift for a scholarship would
become a $2,000 scholarship


Let Us Liglhti

Your Life!






i B e '


for a needy and deserving stu-,
dent. For gifts other than for
scholarships, the state will give
$4 for every $6 we raise locally.
Those may be donations for
equipment, capital construc-
tion, or program enhance-
ments."
"It's apparent that the gover-
nor and members of the
Legislature recognize the con-
iributions .of .coinmumly col
leges to the economic prosperi-
ty of Florida," Stephens said.

Wild game teases tastebuds

while Rotary raises funds


Special to the News-Sun
FROSTPROOF The
Frostproof Rotary Club and the
Frostproof Rotary Charitable
Foundation will continue the
tradition on Saturday, Feb. 18,
when they host their 23rd
Annual Wild Game Dinner.
The Wild Game Dinner has
been an annual event in
Frostproof since 1982, except
for last year, when many
Rotarians were too busy repair-
ing hurricane damage at homes
and businesses to tackle the
many details required to put on
a Wild Game Dinner.
This year's Wild Game
Dinner will be at Friendship


Park at the Depot, one block
east of Scenic Highway on Wall
Street.
This year's Wild Game
Dinner will have a new format.
There will be no more waiting
in a buffet line' for dinner.
Instead, the Wild Game Dinner
will be set up like a food court,
with each small tent serving its
own specialty from 6-9 p.m.
For the price of admission,
guests may wander from tent to
tent and sample gator ribs, gator
tail, barbecue hog, sausage, elk
meatballs, venison filet
mignon, venison roast, venison
pilaf, catfish, fried cornbread,
baked beans, cole slaw, corn on


the cob and everyone's favorite,
,swamp cabbage.
Entertainment for the
evening will be provided by
country and western band
Claude Vance and the Sunshine
Folks.
Adult ticket prices are $50
per person, student tickets for
ages 13-18 are $25 each, and
tickets for children ages 6-12
are $15 each. No alcohol will
be served. For tickets or infor-
mation, call a Frostproof

Girls deserve

accolades

Editor: ,
Seems to me .the community
and the local' school board
should be thrilled and proud to
have a girls' basketball team
with a 20-0 record ...
I live in a community,
Pickerington, Ohio, which has
a rich history of excellent girls'
teams, dating back into the late
'80s and '90s with several
state championships. The coach
here expects intense play from
his- teams in every game. I
imagine your local Coach
Sampson expects the same.
(Apparently, that's what he gets
from his team members.)
The girls and their coach
deserve accolades for their hard
work anrid" dedicalion to this
team!
Perhaps the resignation
should be from a coach Whose
team cannot score in double,
digits, not from the coach who
is 20-0, with ,300 coaching
wins!

Unending cycle

of illegals

Editor:
Seventy-five to 100 million
illegals to go on the, Social
, Security's rolls next month
I accuse the sitting president
of these United States and his
administration of destroying
the safety net of all Americans,
"i.e.," Social Security,
Medicare 'and many other pro-
grams that stabilize our econo-
my, that were installed as safe-
ty nets for the American citi-
zens.
The admitting of millions of
illegals starting in 1986
under the Reagan, Bush
Administration, aiding' and
abetting criminals' and then
given amnesty encouraged
millions more to illegally come
into this country from all over
the world. They came in many
ways, quest workers program
being one of many.
Also, at a time when millions
of Americans have had their
health care policies stolen by
corporations and the sitting
president took $1 billion out of .
Medicare to pay health care for
millions of 'illegals from all
over the world.
Now the sitting president
and his administration plan to
give 'amnesty ,to 15 million
more illegals, or should I say,
an unlimited number of mil-
lions since we have no borders.
I would remind the


's LOOK

a Ware


instead of sending
it.


So
Wednesday,
my habit, I


last
as is
wrote


I hadn't intend- .A
ed to talk any more LAUd
about James Frey
and his so-called Laurc
memoir, "A
Million Little
Pieces." I figured
that was a one-column topic.
Then Oprah had to make a liar
out of me.
Let me give you a brief (at
least as brief as possible) expla-
nation. ,Unlike how it' reads
sometimes, I do not write my
column on midnight on
Saturday for it to appear in
Sunday's paper. Those in
charge of actually putting the
papqr together need a little
more lead time than that.
So my column is usually
written and in Romona's talent-
ed hands well before that. The
routine I currently follow is to
write the column on Wednesday
and try to get it e-mailed to the
newspaper by Thursday morn-
ing. That gives plenty of time to
fix any horrible mistakes or
scream at my Internet provider
in the event it eats the column


Like Frey, she made a goof.
Granted, standing behind a
writer .she had promoted pales
in comparison to passing a
novel off as a true story, but it
was a goof, nonetheless. After
some consideration, she chose
to correct the mistake and
admitted she had made a mis-
take.
Admitting mistakes is not
something that is seen as
strength these days. Think
about it. In those rare occasions
one of our leaders admits they
have made an error, is our first
thought, "good for you! We
know you will learn from this?"
Or is it closer to "you idiot!"
Perhaps part of this reluc-
tance to take blame is rooted 'in
the fact that it seems there are
lawyers behind every comer,
waiting for someone to admit a
mistake so they can be sued for
a ton of money. (Readers of my
column ,might think I blame
lawyers for everything. This is
not true. For example, I have
yet to blame them ,for the
weather, though I expect


Mother Nature to be sued any
day now).
Politicians especially find it
hard to admit mistakes in this
era of "aha!" But stonewalling
has its own perils. I have said it
before, and I will say it again! if
Bill Clinton had just come out
and admitted he was. fooling
around with an intern instead of
lying about it I still would have
found his behavior inexcusable
- but I would also have found
it unimpeachable, since the
Constitution does not exclude
adulterers from being president.
Admitting when we are
wrong should not take indict-
ments, tons of e-mails, or a
chastising by Oprah to happen.
We should take responsibility.
And when those who lead us do
stand up and admit their mis-
takes, we should respond in
such a way that doesn't make
them want to hide future ones.

dent. She can be contacted by

American public that the presi-
dent has gone about the nation
for four years claiming he was
trying to save Social Security
and Medicare, but in reality he
has been aiding and abetting
criminals who have violated
our borders and is now plan-
ning to give amnesty to these
same 15 million-plus illegals,
which will draw millions more
illegals from all over the world,
an unending cycle of illegals.
"There is no way our social
programs," designed to stabi-
lize our economy, can with-
stand these huge numbers in
the many millions, and no end
in sight to the many more mil-
lions yet to come.
The ,end product is the
destruction of the American
government as we know it.
A government without bor-
ders or a. sound immigration
policy can long endure.
The unending amnesty pro-
grams "example of just one
trust fund." Social Security
covers you from the cradle to
the grave.
If 15 million illegals are
given amnesty and an assumed
family of five, which is very
conservative, then 15 million
times five turns out to be 75
million new people put on the
rolls of Social Security. This
shows that no trust fund in
America can survive these
kinds of numbers.
This is the very reason for
controlled immigration.
*Open borders, open to the
world can and will' destroy our
form of government.
I would hope that, those
already on Social Security for


their primary living wage and
the millions of baby boomers
who are about to come aboard
the Social Security system will
contact their representative in
Washington, D.C., to block this
illegal amnesty program and
the quest worker program.
, The time is short because the
present administration plans to
put this into law in February
2006.'

Why are they

weeping?
Editor:
Most Californians think
Geena Davis, the star of the
new television fantasy
"Commander in Chief," is real-
ly the president of The United
States.
That earth shaking you feel
is an earthquake (No. 7 on the
Richter scale) caused by the
nomination of Samuel Alito to
the United States Supreme
Court. Almost everyone in
California wondered why a
nice, sensible president like
Geena Davis.would have done
such an evil deed. They think
it's bad enough that they have
to deal with the headaches
caused by Gov. Arnold
Schwarzenegger but now they
must deal with the world com-
ing to an end on the Eastern
Coast, caused by the president
trying to push Alito off on
them.
Hysteria. and emotions run
high. "Abortion will be the first
item Judge Alito and I will dis-


'If the role of the press in a democratic society is to

have any value, all journalists including student

journalists must be allowed to publish viewpoints

contrary to those of state authorities without

intervention or censorship.'


cuss," says Sen. Arlen Specter.
Kate Michelman, the past pres-
ident of NARAL-Pro-Choice
has joined the fray saying,
"Now the gauntlet has been, I
think, thrown down." Senator
Barbara Boxer (D-Calif) says,
"This nomination is aimed at
appeasing the most right-wing
elements of the president's
political base." Sen. Patrick
Leahy of Vermont, calls the
nomination a "needless provo-
cation." Senator '" Teddy
Kennedy, (the answer to the
prayer of every young woman
in distress), describes Samuel
Alito as a risk to fundamental
American freedoms ... (Read
as, He endangers a woman's
"right to kill her baby").
Look at who Alito's enemies
are. If Sen. Ted. Kennedy,
Barbara Boxer and The
NARAL- Pro-'Death Crowd are
against Alito he must be the.
right man to be a Supreme
Copurt Justice.
The Democrats tried to make
the '04 election as a referen-
dum on "abortion rights." It
didn't work. Al Gore and John
Kenrry warned that if George W.
Bush was elected, he would
appoint conservatives to the
Supreme Court. He has.
The Democrats have a presi-
dent in Hollywood for an hour
each week. Why are they weep-
ing, wailing, gnashing their
teeth And pitching a "hissey fit"
over Alito? Because the Liberal
democrats are desperate to pi'o-
tect the so-called "rite of abor-
tion," which the Leftist and
Democrats regard as being as
important to Democrats as the
doctrine of the Virgin Birth is
to Christianity.

Solutions to bug

problems

Editor:
For those of you who are
plagued with fire and bull ants,
there are two simple solutions
that have been effective and
environmentally friendly to all
but the bugs.

the column. I said,
among other
things, that Oprah was standing
behind Frey. Up to that point I
had no reason to think she
would change her mind. After
checking the spelling on the
thing, I e-mailed it to the paper
and went merrily on my way.
Imagine my surprise and cha-
grin when the very next day I
find out that Oprah had Frey
back on her show and read him
the riot act. While I found it
commendable of Oprah not to
give someone who engaged in
questionable writing behavior a
pass I wondered why she could-
n't have done it before I had
written the column.
So now let me start off' by-
clearing my conscience and
saying Oprah is not standing
behind Frey. Having said that,
her reversal gave me some food
for thought.

One is ground cinnamon.
Pour .it into the hole of the
offender's nest and along the
pathways the ants usually trav-
el. Each time I have done this,
the ants move on or die. I just
never see them again.
The second is grits. Poured
into the hole or on the outside
of the anthill, where it is taken
in and consumed or stored.
Water must be added soon
after. The grits will expand and
seems to destroy or strongly
discourage the colony from liv-
ing in that spot.
For those who have the small
roaches, the bait traps have
proven more effective than thM
sprays, as the bait is taken back
to the nesting site and every
generation consumes the poi-
son and dies.
The sprays are effective only
on the adults. If they lay their
egg sacks before they die, the
babies will not be affected and
may even develop an immunity
to a particular pesticide.
Just helpful hints to Florida
living, even with the screen
doors shut.

Senators have
courage
Editor:
Television station WEDU
tells us that our Republican
Congressman,. Mark Foley
received $5,000 for Abramoff,
the notorious lobbyist. I don't
remember the News-Sun telling
us this.
When Grace Nelson gave'
two speeches at the Elks Lodge
on Jan. 7, we got the story on
page 15A four days later. The
story did accurately say that
Mrs. Nelson- denounced
pornography and praised the
National Prayer Breakfast.
Taxpayers for Common
Sense has applauded Senator
Bill Nelson, along with Senator
Bob Graham and Rep. Allen
Boyd, all Democrats from
Florida. The trio tried to deau-
thorize the Apalachicola River'
- navigation channel. Taxpayers


for Common Sense calculated
that the little used channel costs
taxpayers $60,000 for every
barge that floats down it.
Nevertheless, it takes courage
for any member of Congress to
vote against spending in his
own state.

Not too early to
look at choices
Editor:
It is never too early to start
thinking about our choices for
candidates in our next election.
Too often we are prone to give
it no thought until the day
before election; it's very impor-
tant to be prepared by being
informed. Let us put aside poli-
tics and think about who we are
and what we believe in.
From what I can see and
read, one of our parties sup-
ports all or most of the things
that I detest, such as gay mar-
fiage, abortion, pornography,
one world government, global
taxes to name a few. I don't
believe many of you like this
any better than I do, but if we
don't educate ourselves on our
candidates, we are apt to vote
for those who are out to destroy
the very things we stand for,
our total way of life.
I noticed John Kerry was
back in the news blowing his
horn, encouraging a filibuster.
According to the boat people
who served with him in
Vietnam, he is a farce-one who
can't be trusted. Then, there is
Hillary; we all know how hard
she worked to bring about gov-
ernment-controlled health care.
There are others who should be
carefully scrutinized as well
before consideration.
I know we can't: believe
everything we hear on the
news, but some channels are
more accurate than others.
If we want to preserve our
American way of life, it is a
must that we get serious and
spend time in prayer for God's,
wisdom to guide us while
we're doing all we can to learn
what we can do.
One of our greatest problems
has been our Supreme Court
judges who have .twisted the'


law to carry the decision
according- to their desires. If
you watched the recent hear-
ings, you had to notice the.
determination of some to stay
with the status quo. Poor souls,
they wanted to know how
Judge Alito would vote even
before he was confirmed.
God is at work in our coun-
try; he is'still in control. I know
if we do our part, he will bring
this great nation to one nation
under God once more. May
God bless each one of you and
guide you in your preparation
and guide you when you go to
the polls.

C-Span should
be more careful
Editor:
With the sneezing and
coughing season, I found
myself staying up late and try-.
ing to find something educa-
tional on television and found
C-Span had a panel that includ-
ed Cindy Sheehan.
I think that C-Span should
check out everything that their
guests claim before allowing it
to come before the public. If
this was call-in's I would
understand allowing everyone
to their own opinion, but when
it comes to guests, getting free
time to feed the public misin-
formation, shows a lack of car-
ing that their listeners hear the
facts.
Cindy Sheehan was talking
about the constitution and
claims that in her class in
school she had the highest
score on the constitution.
If that is the case, then why
does she claim President
George Bush was selected by


the Supreme Court to be the
winner in the 2000 election.
She certainly knows that the
election for president is stated
in the Constitution that it is not
the national total vote at the
polls, but by the electoral col-
lege, which is made up of
members of congress casting
their vote for the candidates
selected by the popular vote in
their state.
I guess Cindy Sheehan has
not heard that President George
Bush won Florida by approxi-
mately 300 votes ... after days
and days of recounting the
votes in Florida costing the tax
payers monies that could have
gone to feed the poor.
And if the large number of
military ballots thrown out in
Florida by the Democrats
because of arriving late at the
polls, President Bush would
have won by a larger vote
count.
Also many bags of ballots
were found on ships that never
got to the states to be counted
in others states, which would
have added to the popular vote
count for Bush in 2000. It was
a well-known fact the military
was supporting George Bush
for president.
I guess if those military
votes would have gone to Gore,
they would have found their
way in the vote count.
She then goes on to explain
that President George Bush
won the 2004 election by huge
voter fraud.
In the first place there could
never be a huge voter fraud
vote to change the electoral
college vote by congress in
2004, and how is it she knows
so much about Republican
voter fraud and not recognize
Democrat voter fraud. No one
knows who votes Republican


or Democratic in the fall elec-
tions.
I hope people who are gener-
ally' intelligent going to the
polls to vote will search Cindy
Sheehan's statements carefully
and I think C-Span should use a
little bite of intelligence in
allowing, guests to use their
program for propaganda
instead of educating the public.

Keeping the
road sides clean
Editor:
While heading to breakfast
Sunday morning in Lake
Placid, we had to cross U.S. 27
from east to west.
The median and both sides
of U.S. 27 for at least half a
mile in either direction were
absolutely covered with news-
paper it was obvious that a
delivery truck had lost a good
part of its load and just kept
going.
My husband and 12-year-old
daughter were so upset with the
way "their" town looked that
we parked and started picking
up this trash. Kentucky Fried
Chicken generously gave my
daughter several large trash
bags. About an hour later,' U.S.
27 in Lake Placid was once
again clean and green.
I'm very proud of my family
Richard and Rhonwen
Gavagni and want to thank
them as a citizen of our town.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop

Love's seasons
When love blooms -
like the coming of spring -
we don't want it to change.
The budding vibrancy and
expectancy are energizing.
In courtship, that bud
opens to reveal the need for
nourishment the sunshine
bf warm caring, where each
gets to know the other bet-
fer. Hopes and dreams are
shared. It's the time to ask
questions. Observe the other
in various settings with fam-
ily and friends and evaluate
how one is treated.
Acquainting oneself with
attitudes and affections
reveals if this one is. truly
genuine. Be sure of shared
values in decision making,
choices and raising children.
See if he loves sacrificially
ifnd if she respects him.
'Each one of you must
also love his wife as he
loves himself, and the wife
tiust respect her husband."
(Ephesians 5: 33, NIV)
SThis "getting to know
you time" is like gentle rain
watering the seeds yet to
develop along with buds
aching to bloom. It quench-
es the thirst of each person,
to know and be known; to
grow and develop with the
6ther's encouragement and,
in the process, complement
one another.
And yes, it means experi-
encing conflict. The test is
in how conflict is resolved.
Is unselfishness and forgive-
ness lacking or plentiful?
Has a new closeness devel-
oped or has the issue been
ignored creating an invisible
barrier?
Most importantly, it's the
time to be sure that each has
found in the other their spir-
itual soul mate. Is this per-
- son's relationship with the
Lord central in his or her
life or compartmentalized to
Sunday church attendance
to please you? Will he or
Sshe want to grow and serve
God as a couple?
These were important
days, weeks and months in
Ken's and my life when we
met and courted.,
Observations and questions
such as these needed
authentic answers or all the
emotional feelings wouldn't
hold up in the real world of
married life.
\Ve' e had much joy
accompanied by times of
painful trials and tribula-
iions. At the time, we might
have wished for the early
days of courtship when love
vas fresh and new without
testing.
But, through those irritat-
ihg times, God developed
the "pearl" of oneness and a
maturing, deepening love
that he could v.ork through.
Whether single or
engaged, be watchful and
allow God to shape you and
'how you.his best. Guard
'our heart. And if you're
married. seek God to nur-
ture that soulmate quality so
Sou imay serve hiin together.
r- In two days, we will cele-
brate our 24th wedding
anniversary. As I look back,
I remember the treasure of
fiew love found, of nourish-
ing courtship and delight in
i marriage of serving God
together
: Yesterday was enchanti-
he. Today is wonderful.
Tomorrow\ will'be mar-'
velous because God is in all
6f love's seasons. Selah.

ha\e reached out to teach Nounger children with the
same interests.
The vsion isn't hard to catch. Two teenagers are
touching the lihes of children. Those children will
touch others in their spheres of influence both in
the sighted and unsighted circles where they are mem-
bers.
More than music is being taught or rather
'.caught" bN these young students through their
leen mentors. Life lessons abound as well; such as.
being other-centered instead of self-centered: willingly
gi% |ng one.s ume and talent for the development of
another: being an encourager; teaching discipline,
patience and perseverance.
And. perhaps. that will create a domino effect that
' ill tackle down as these Noung students follow in
the footsteps of their mentors. Wait in the wings to see
and hear \that happens.

The first Sunday of each month, the

It had started out as an ordinary day.
As a waitress, Patty had become adept at
handling large trays of food though
she was a petite young woman.
This particular day, while backing out
of the restaurant's double kitchen doors
with a huge tray of orders, her feet went
out from under her. Suddenly, she was
.sprawled on the floor having slipped on
something.
Patty relived that moment for 11 years'
plagued by the painful and crippling dis-
ease known as reflex sympathetic drone
- resulting from.the fall. No longer able
to walk or function normally, even her
speech was affected by the involuntary
muscle reflexes tearing at her face and
neck.


She cried as she
recalled her "monster

spasms wracked her .
body. Continuing '
sharp, stabbing, burn-
ing pain afflicted her
night and da\ accom- 1 '
panied by prickly _'a
numbness .-- like gphiby:FREDKC
something crawling
along her skin. .
She'd cry out to her husband, Albert
that she wanted to tear her clothes off,
because the feel of them intensified the
pain. One of those instances happened
when he lovingly took her out for a
romantic dinner in an effort to lift her
anxiety and depression.
The pain and: crawling sensation was
intolerable. Hoping to alleviate her dis-
comfort, he pushed her wheelchair out-
side while their meal was being pre-
pared.
Patty broke down, sobbing.
"You don't deserve this. You should-
n't stay with me anymore. Leave me,
please. Go find someone else who can be
a real wife to you. I'm so ashamed of my,
appearance, of everything. Go!"
They had only been married seven
years when the accident occurred. Albert
remained steadfast helping Patty refocus


on God' as her only
source of comfort. So.
he took ia \alk to 7ie-e
his wife some space.
I but, when he returned
he declared,
"I tried. But, I can't
leave. You're the only
bnie for 'me."

increasing Patt-'s faith
and love for God. Though her condition
remained unchanged. she took a huge,
step in faith and attended a local
women's conference.
She and her roommate prayed most
nights for God to touch her. Gradually,
in her heart, God confirmed that the time
was near. At a quiet, humble foot wash-
ing service, without any forewarning,
God moved and the impossible hap-
pened.
Patty was healed. Completely.
Her husband arrived to pick her up,
knowing only that something amazing
had happened to his wife. Never had he
imagined she would walk to him with
normal legs, free of pain and speaking as
she used to.
They fell into each other's arms,
clinging to one another and praising
God.
In healing Patty, God stretched out his


Warm-up time
For better or worse, in sickness and in
health are more than just words. They
are vows of commitment. Though
they're not always tested so severely.
theN shouldn't be spoken lightly.

Sit-up and take notice
Being one encompasses more than
jusi the physical part of a marital rela-
tionship. Oneness calls upon the emo-
tions, the mind, and the spirit to unite
That which h affects one affects both.

Curl-up together
When a husband is steadfast and fuld-
fills his role as the protector and'
provider, he creates a secure en'. ion-
ment one that can handle emotions
that scream otherwise.

hand to marvelously reward the
unswerving faithfulness of her husband.
Patty's so thankful that Albert didn't
obey her voice to leave, but remained
faithful to the vows he had made before
God.

If you missed her talk and
book signing Jan. 30 at the
Lake Placid Women's Club,
then we'll give you a second
chance to meet an American
novelist and fiction writer from
Bonita Springs Linda
Bilodeau. Sebring Library is
hosting a book talk and signing
at 6 p.m. Monday, in the meet-
ing room. A reception will fol-
low.
Bilodeau's book, "The Olive
Branch: a Tale of Resistance,"
was sparked by her trip to
Franpe and the fascinating sto-
ries she discovered of women in
the French Resistance. "The
Olive Branch" demonstrates
how ordinary citizens can face
devastating situations with
courage. Bilodeau's second
book, to be released in June, is
set in Immokalee, with an cast
of Seminole Indians, migrant
farm workers, and drug addicts.
"Stepping Through Seagrass" is
the story of a recovering alco-
holic doctor starting over, and
this compelling fiction drama
has spawned a sequel currently
being worked on, titled "One
Step Back."
Bilodeau worked in hospital
administration and as an
adjunct business teacher at
Indiana University and Marian
College, before moving with
her husband to Bonita Springs.
She has written many articles
for The Journal of Nuclear
Medicine,'been a freelance mar-
keting consultant, and writes a
monthly column for her neigh-
borhood newsletter. Bilodeau's
constant writing companion is a
feline named Kitty.
Plan to join Bilodeau in our
meeting room for a time of dis-
cussion on writing, getting pub-

listed, agent tales,
and other helpful
ideas and sugges-
tions from this sea-
soned writer.
It's sad but true -
I'm math-chal-
lenged. If you've had
problems with fig-
ures that tied you in
knots, perhaps it's
time to look at math
from a new perspec-
tive. Going back to
the basics might be


the solution to under-
standing the hows and whys of
mathematics, and fortunately
for us, Children's Librarian,
Maria Chenique, ordered a
number of new books on using
math in everyday situations.
Those new titles are from the
series "Math & My World,"
with colorful, thoughtful,
insightful looks at how math
helps us in every aspect of life.
Check out these titles: "Animal
Math;" "Construction Math;"
"Music Math;" "Space Math;"
"Sports Math," and ',Time
Math." There is also a bi-lin-
gual series "I Use Math," with
the titles all beginning "I Use
Math at the Game, at the
Store, at the Doctors,. in the
Kitchen, in the Workshop, :and
on a Trip."
Each book shows how we
use our math skills every day in
a multitude of activities, and
how skillful use of math can
enable us to avoid running out
of gas, buying too much or too
little material for a project, or
not giving ourselves enough
time to get to our destination.
The subject of math isn't a
dull one as you'll discover
when you take home,


Okeechobee
Library's book "Map
Math." Here's the
scoop on learning
scale, the compass,
longitude, latitude,
elevation, depth, and
the solar system -.
who could have
guessed that map
reading involved get-
ting comfortable with
mathematics ?
There's more math
fun in "How Do


Octopi Eat Pizza
Pie?;" "Comic-strip, Math;"
"Coincidences, Chaos, and All
That Math .Jazz;" "Counting:
Follow that Fish!;" "The
Grapes of Math:" "Mind
Stretching Math Riddles; Go
Figure!;" "Anno's Mysterious
Multiplying Jar," and "Fun
With Mathematics."
Some titles to give you
something to think about:
Hardee Library's "Innumeracy:
Mathematical Illiteracy and Its
Consequences," or their book
"Islands of Truth: a
Mathematical Mystefy Cruise."
Reserve DeSoto's "How the
Arabs Invented Algebra," or
Okeechobee Library's "50
Simple Things You Can Do t9
Raise a Child Who Loves
Math."

An inspirational thought

... "S If you- are feeling somewnihat
K discouraged, wondering if God
cares or even questioning if God
is realiv there with' you, let ine
i encourage you from the IVord of
God. Hebrews 13:5 says, "L L
"* your conversation be wAth i4-
covetousness; and be contitk .
-with such thing as ye have, for"
He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake
thee." I wherever you are, in ivhatever situation you
arc facing, according to Hebrews 13:5, the Lord is
there with you. Once you accepted Christ as your
personal Saviour, you have been adopted in the
family of God. There will be trials, tests and
sufferings.

IW'e sometimes have tojeitr:i obedience through the
things we suffer. It important that as
Christians. we get int i| 'ord of God. study the
word of God, and be a'te pply the word of God.
It doesn't matter ihat;'f Iee eCnemy has platinned
for us: the word of Gotfrl ds us int I Corinthians
10:13, there is a wvat v;FJ ape already prepared
for us. Be Encouragetl. ,

Florida's aquifers supply necessary water


The term "aquifer" is defined
by Merriam Webster dictionary
as "a water-bearing stratum of
permeable rock, sand, or grav-
el." In Florida, multiple layers
of limestone hold water deep
underground. Florida's aquifers
supply nearly 100 percent our
drinking water. Groundwater
released from aquifers not only
supplies us with freshwater for
drinking, but also sustains thou-
sands of ecosystems and is an
essential resource for outdoor
recreation, industry and agricul-
ture.
Groundwater comes to the
surface through more than 600
natural springs found through-
out the state (if you haven't vis-
ited one of Florida's springs
you are missing out on a unique
experience.) Groundwater is
also pumped to the surface
through artificial wells.
Florida's aquifers are divided
into two general categories:
Surficial and Floridian.
Surficial aquifers are shallow


(less than 100 feet under-
ground) beds of shell and sand.
They are separated from the
Floridian aquifer by a confining
bed of soil. The Floridian
aquifer is sandwiched between
two confining layers of soil
and/or rock. This means that the
water is stuck there under pres-
sure and can not pass through
the impermeable confining lay-
ers. When the water pressure is
great enough, the groundwater
breaks to the surface and a
spring is formed.
Florida's surficial aquifers
are found in South Florida.
Important surficial aquifers
include: Biscayne aquifer, sand
and gravel aquifer, and
Chokoloskee aquifer. The
Biscayne aquifer is located in
southeast Florida and covers
over 3,000 square miles. It is
the most intensely used water
source in Florida and supplies
water to Dade, Broward, Palm
Beach, and Monroe counties.


The sand and gravel
aquifer covers 2,400
square miles in
Florida's panhandle.
The Chokoloskee
aquifer stretches A
3,000 square miles in
southwest Florida.
Surficial aquifers are
vulnerable to pollu-
tants and contamina- NEWS
tion of saltwater D
(saltwater intrusion)
is a problem. WATE
The Floridian
aquifer is much larg- Jennifi
er than the surficial -
aquifers; it stretches
82,000 square miles beneath
Florida and parts of Alabama,
Georgia, and South Carolina.
The depth of the aquifer and the
confining layers help protect it
from contamination and
throughout most of the north
and central parts of Florida the
quality of the water in the
Floridian aquifer is excellent.


FROM

HE

ERSHED

er Donze


The Floridian aquifer
extends throughout
Highlands County.
The Floridian
aquifers supplies
fresh water to many
cities such as
Daytona, Gainesville,
Jacksonville, Ocala,
St. Petersburg,
Tallahassee, and
other rural communi-
ties.
In the Everglades,
the Floridian is 1,200
feet beneath the sur-
face. Throughout cen-
tral Florida, the


Floridian aquifer lies at 100 to
200 feet beneath the surface.
However, in some areas such as
the west coastal and the north-
central areas of Florida, the
Floridian is found near.the sur-
face.
Despite the common belief
that Florida has an overabun-
dance of freshwater for human


use, in reality Florida has simi-
lar water shortage problems as
do many other states. Floridians
use more water per capital than
residents of any other state
except California. Florida's
ever-increasing population
drains our water supply.
Residents and visitors can
help protect Florida's valuable
supply of freshwater by:
Installing low-flow toilets
and low flow shower-heads.
Turning off the water
while brushing teeth.
Fixing leaky faucets and
other water leaks around the
home.
Planting trees and shrubs
that are native to Florida and
don't require as much water as
other plants.
Irrigating the lawn early in
the morning or late at night,
when the sun won't evaporate
the water before it helps your
plants.'
Refraining from using


lawn and garden fertilizers and
pesticides.
Recycling batteries, used
motor oil and other toxic fluids
Preventing oil leaks from
vehicles.
Purchasing eco-friendly
products.
Being careful about the
storage and disposal of house-
hold and lawn care chemicals
and wastes.
Reducing erosion.
Regularly checking under-
ground storage tanks that hold
home heating oil, diesel, or
gasoline.
Protecting wells from the
wastes of livestock, pets, and

Florida soil not friendly




to water loving plants


The soils in Highlands, Okeechobee
and Glades counties are mostly sand
which allow rapid downward move-
ment of water, nutrients and pesticides. ..1
These sandy soils dry out quickly and
are not compatible with plants having
high water and nutritional require-
ments. The simplest way to avoid
growing problems in your yard is to "
utilize native or other plants suited for GR
these soils. If you want to put in a veg- GR
etable or flower garden be prepared to SF
amend the soil by adding compost or
other organic matter to the bed.
It is helpful to check the pH (acidi- Highlar
ty/alkalinity) of your soil. Check with Master
your local Agricultural Extension Master
Service office, as they may be able to
run this test for you. These sandy inland soils are
usually acidic (low pH) and may need to have
lime added or you can choose plants that tolerate
acidic soils. Keep in mind that many yards con-
tain fill soil brought in from elsewhere so it is
best to, do a test. If you have a masonry house
where excess waste concrete and mortar fell on
the soil during construction the soil in these areas
may be more alkaline.
If you wish to apply fertilizer to your soil uti-
lize a slow release type which is more environ-
mentally safe and cost effective. The label on the
fertilizer container will have three numbers. The

first number refers to the percentage
of nitrogen, the second is phospho-
rous and the third is potassium. If
possible the first and third number
should be the same (15-0-15).
Phosphorous occurs naturally in
most of our soils so it is not neces-
sary to add it. Keep applications of
* fertilizer to a minimum for healthy
plants and turf as any excess winds
up in our rivers and lakes causing
increased algae growth.
When applying fertilizer to a lawn,
use a maximum of one pound of nitro-
gen per 1,000 square feet (6.5 pounds
of a 15-0-15) no more than twice per
year (March and October). If your
lawn still will not green up try apply-


ing chelated iron or iron sulfate instead of more
fertilizer.

If you have a plant that you would like for one of
the Master Gardeners to write about or if you
have gardening questions, call 402-6540 or visit
the Master Gardeners, office in the Highlands
County Agri-Civic Center. Send questions to:
Master Gardeners, 4509 George Blvd., Sebring,
FL 33872.

ated with the University of Florida's Institute of

TALENTS.
Continued from 1B
songs I like," Farmer said.
While awaiting his student,
Garcia set up his living room
as a very satisfactory teaching
studio. Once Farmer arrived,
he began by teaching him how
to tune his guitar using an elec-
tronic guitar tuner.
"It's a very sensitive tool,"
Garcia said. "Kind of picky."
Then the lesson began in
earnest. To practice, they
played a familiar worship song
together. Farmer kept his eyes
glued to the music on the stand
and Garcia intently watched
Farmer's fingering.
Then Garcia showed Farmer
a technique to more easily fin-
ger the chords. He helped him
to work on chords, rhythms
and transitions. Garcia reem-
phasized the importance of
accentsin a song when strum-
ming so that he could help
Farmer get the right sound and
feeling. He then pointed out
the importance of not dragging
the pick; and, holding the gui-
tar properly so it doesn't lean
against him.
"At first it was a little hard
for Clark to use a full-size gui-
tar. His hands are small. But,
he's gotten over that pretty
well," Garcia said.
"Cl.ii very musical,"
Garcia said. "He learns very
fast."
Consequently, Farmer also .
has begun teaching a student of
his own not younger, but
12-years-old. This student also
is a quick study and the boys
will probably take lessons
together under Garcia.
Farmer also plays piano and
trumpet; but, his favorite
instrument is fast becoming the
guitar.
It seems that Garcia and
Farmer have a mutual admira-
tion society one appreciates
the talents and style of his
teacher; the other sees the,
immense potential in his stu-
dent.
Drummer boy
Rodney Havery, 14, of
S'ebring, has shown exceptional
drun-unin, talent since his dad,
-Harry, first heard him rhythrni-
cally drumming on a basketball
in the back seat of the car.
"I realized this wasn't a kid
just keeping a beat to the
music playing as we drove
along. An inherent talent was
waiting to be released," Harry
Havery said.
And, as' a professional musi-


cian and a composer of many
original songs, he was only too
happy to encourage his son's
talent
At age 10, young Havery
took on the enormous responsi-
bility of becoming the drum-
mer and youngest member of
the Bible Fellowship Worship
Team. He has gone to every
practice and willingly learned
and kept pace with the adults.
He also plays the drum kit for
the Sebring Middle School jazz
band and the snare in the con-
cert band.
He plays drums as part of
the group, Jokaroha, comprised
of Jordan Terrell, piano and
vocals; Katy Havery, bass; and
Harry Havery, vocals and gui-
tar. They've cut a CD and play
occasionally for various func-
tions, especially at Christmas.
He's a member of Bible
Fellowship's Youth Praise
Band, too along with enjoy-
ing bass guitar.
Besides his musical involve-
ments, he plays basketball for
Sebring Middle School. Yet,
with all of this to his credit,
Rodney Havery has another
special interest teaching
what he knows to a younger
child.
Trent Ferguson, 7, of
Sebring, has shown an interest
in music from his early toddler
years. He played at the key-
board and exhibited a natural
talent just waiting to be devel-
oped. But, when he discovered
the drums or perhaps they
discovered him a bond was
formed that let him express
himself in extraordinary ways.
"Trent has immense natural
talent. He's learning so fast
that I'm running out of things
to teach him," Rodney Havery
said.
This Avon Elementary sec-
ond-grader has been taking les-
sons for nine months. He loves.
coming under the tutelage of
his friend, and mentor. He
eagerly shared his knowledge
and named the various types of
drums he plays.
"Snare drum, kick drum,
mounted toms, floor tom and
the cymbals crash, ride and
hi-hat. He teaches me fills and
beats and '. er, th in ."
Ferguson exclaimed.
But,' this teacher/student
relationship has a unique twist.
Ferguson has been blind from
birth.
Consequently, Ferguson's
extraordinary listening skills
and innate ability to feel the
music and create the rhythm
challenges Rodney Havery to
communicate through voice


Trent Ferguson is a quick study,
and eagerly gets into his lesson.

and touch. He watches his
young student with eyes of
admiration and guides him
accordingly.
The lesson typically begins
with Rodney Havery sitting at
the drums and teaching
Ferguson a set. Ferguson hones
in with a radar-like ability to
capture the lesson. In
moments, it's his turn and he
enthusiastically takes his seat.
"Count out the beat,
Rodney," Ferguson said.
"One, two, three and,"
Rodney Havery said and
Ferguson takes off delight
written all over his face. He
loves to perform and hear the
applause asking people lis-
tening to clap loudly after each
song.
Havery said it doesn't take'
his student long to practice a
set he's shown him and then


play it naturally shortly after-
wards.
Havery's new acoustic drum
set, which he purchased him-
self, is different than the elec-
tronic drum set Ferguson had
been learning on. That set now
belongs to Ferguson who is
becoming proficient with both
drum set styles. Quite often,
Havery has music playing and
Ferguson accompanies it with
the live drums.
He definitely does not mind
practicing.
"I like putting headphones
on at home and playing my
drums to the music," Ferguson
said.
Ferguson has memorized the
latest Bible Fellowship
Worship Team CD, but he also
enjoys the fun of rock 'n' roll.
Though drums are his favorite,
he's learning bass guitar from
his Grandpa T.J. Kinyon.
This young drummer comes
alive before an audience -
capturing them with his smile,
his delight in.the music and a
zest for living that accompa-
nies his showmanship. He's
performed three times with the
Toe Jam Band and at birthday
parties. At Bible Fellowship's
Christmas program, Harry
Havery accompanied him with
guitar and vocal, while
Ferguson played "Little
Drummer Boy" with tender
feeling. There wasn't a dry eye
in the place.
Rodney Havery sees vividly
into the not too distant future.
"I'm grooming Trent to take
m\ pLace as the drummer with
the Worship Team.when I go
off to college."

Sebring, Avon Park send 16 to regional

Streaks finish runner-up to Lake Wales


By MARCUS WILKINS
News-Sun correspondent
ST. CLOUD Ask any coach or ath-
lete on the floor at the District 8-1A
wrestling meet about the outcome and
* you'll see quickly how it relates to per-
spective.
For Avon Park, trudging its way
through the first wrestling season in
school history, the positive air was pal-
pable. For the proud Sebring wrestling
program, it was tough to be satisfied
with anything but first at Harmony High
School on Friday night.
"NO point in smiling. It's not first
place," said sober-faced Sebring senior
Tim Mikulla, the 189-pound district
champ, while posing for the team sec-
ond-place trophy photo.
With four individual district champs
and 155 total points (second only to
Lake Wales High School), Sebring's
presence was impressive, but not the-
ultimate goal.

status as soon as possible. Red Devils
co-coach. Lee Elder was as pleased as
anyone in the gymnasium.
"We hoped to get seven in the region-
als and we got six, so we just abotit met
our expectations," Elder said. "The kids
really stepped up and did what they had
to do."
One of the kids \ho stepped up was
freshman James Bland, who lost a fre- -'

Shakinah Crumity of Sebring pulls up for a jump shot over Palmetto's Whitney Pyle
in the first half of Saturday's district championship game.


nine seconds left in the half, which was
triggered by a Chastity Godfrey steal,
put the Streaks ahead 43-18 at halftime.
Palmetto gave Sebring a dose of its
own medicine to open the first half,
pressing the Streaks into five quick


turnovers to open with an 8-2 run that
made it 45-26. The Streaks missed four
of six free throws during that stretch,
but soon got the wheels turning again to
lead 57-28 heading into the final quar-
ter.

Sebring roster looks a lot like last season's


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Pitcher Kendall Carson is just one of a large group of Sebring Lady
Blue Streaks back from last season's roster.


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING If the infield of the Sebring
Lady Blue Streaks looks familiar this season,
there's a good reason'.
All the way around the clay, from catcher
Chastity Godfrey to first baseman Priya Patel,
coach Lee Tolar's Streaks have every player back
from last season's squad that made the playoffs
and finished 13-15.
"Our infield is really tight and we've got
decent pitching," Tolar said. "We've filled a cou-
ple of holes already with a couple of talented
freshmen.


* "It's definitely not a rebuilding year. We've got
a lot of experience and a lot of speed."
Along with Patel and Godfrey (who will join
the team after basketball season along with pitch-
er/first baseman Hannah Shoop and utility player
Priscilla Adams), the Streaks also return third
baseman Kayla Dunn, shortstop Kristin Salinder
and second baseman Jessica Cooley.
Outfielders'Jean Gose and Chelsea Vickers'are
also back, as is pitcher Kendall Carson.
"Kendall's coming back and we're'looking for
her to do a good job on the'mound," Tolar said.

DEVILS
Continued from 1D
The Dragons took the ball
from tip and scored first,, but
the Devils quickly retaliated.
The game was going back and
forth until Devaris Strange hit a
3-pointer and the Devils started
to attack on defense.
Avon Park then jumped into
a diamond press to distort Lake
Placid and cause turnovers. The
Devils worked the press to per-
fection as they went on 7-0 run
to end the. first quarter ahead
19-12.
The Dragons are not a team
to go quietly, and they proved
that as they moved the ball very
well and played tough defense
to shorten the Avon Park lead,
but a fast-break dunk by
Patrick Menzies wowed even
the Dragon crowd and gave the
Devils the spark they were
looking for as they rolled into
the half with a 2.8-23 lead.
Strange's 3-point shooting
wasn't his only source of points
as the shifty senior dipped in
and out of the Dragons' defense
to put up 23 points.
"I brought my 'A' game
tonight and we played as a
team to get the job done," said
Strange.
Jovanni Shuler was the life
of the Dragons as he racked up
18 points and moved the ball
very well to keep his team as
close as possible.
With time running down in
the third quarter, Shuler
attempted a shot and was
fouled at the buzzer, then made
two of three free throws to go
into tie fourth quarter with the
Dragons down 48-37.
The Dragons were deter-
mined to make a comeback in
the fourth, but the Devils con-
tinued their fast and aggressive
play. With 2:30 left in the
game, Menzies hammered
down another dunk off a shot
missed by one of his teammates
to assure the lead for the
Devils.
There wasn't much the
Dragons could do after that as
the Red Devils held the ball
and time ran out.
"(Avon Park) had a lot of
speed and- shot the ball very
Stell." id Lake Placid coach
Steve Young. "But we played
hard tonight and I'm still proud
of my team. We have to put this
behind us and get ready for
Tuesday."
Lake Placid travels, to
Frostproof and takes on
Mulberry, Tuesday night at 6
p.m. in the District 8-3A semi-
final.

of his 18 points against Avon
Park on Friday.

matches, so we're proud of all
of them," Elder added.
For Sebring, Mikulla's confi-
dent demeanor translated to the
mat as he marched through his
opponents, barely breaking a
sweat until the final match with
Bartow High's Mark Keeley.
Patrick Fox (103 pounds).
Bradley Hicks (140) and
Clifton Cox (160) all claimed a
district titles as well.
Ronnie Sliwicki (119) and
Shaanan Spiegel (135) finished
second in their weight classes
and Dustin Drummond (112),
Will Broen (130), Lance Payne
(145) and James Boone (171)
each took fourth to advance to
regional meet.
Unfortunately for the Blue
Streaks, it was the second year
in a row they finished second to
the Highlanders. Coach Dave
Cunningham felt the team had
underachieved.
"Some guys wrestled better,
than I expected up until the
final round, but we're just so
young we're not used to the
pressure," he said. "Nobody
came out and really wrestled.


We had three guys that lost
matches to kids they had beaten
earlier in the :year. We just
weren't ready to wrestle in 'the
finals."
Cox dominated his opponent
in the final match versus Lake
Wales' Lynos 'Williams..Fox's
final match wasn't quite as
decisive, but it was certainly
expected.
"Fox wrestled well, had one,
bad period. But these guys
(Mikulla and Fox), we, want
them to place at state. They're
going to have to step up a little
more than where we were at
tonight," Cunningham said.
The intensity of both Avon
Park and Sebring was visible
throughout the gym; What was
also apparent was the respec-
tive emotional satisfaction -
and lack thereof in each
camp.
Elder knows where his team
is and where he wants them to
be.
"Sebring has been a great
help to us," he said. "We want
this to be a rivalry like the other
sports." .
With the burgeoning success
of the Red Devils wrestling
team, that rivalry could be in
the very near future.

depends.", ..
The strength of the Streaks this season, accord-
ing to Tolar,, will be team speed, which is some-
thing he plans to take advantage of with aggres-
sive baserunning and a timely bunt or two if
needed.
"If we come across a night we can't hit, we're
going to do what we have to do to get runs," Tolar
said.
The Streaks' new home in District 10-4A along
with Avon Park, Hardee, DeSoto, Sarasota
Booker, Palmetto and Braden River makes pre-
dictions difficult, Tolar said, although he knows
that almost all of those teams can be hard to beat
on any given night.
"It's a tough, seven-team district and there are
going to be a lot of dogfights," he said. "We're
ready to get this thing rolling."
