With five inches of 'rain the week preceding
Wednesday's arrival of Tropical Depression Ernesto which
dropped another four to six inches, and the continuous
afternoon showers typical of the region, Mother Nature
hasn't been much help either. ,
"We're caught in the middle between Sandra Tyrrell the
'horse lady' and the district, which has a permit to pump
water," Mike Tellshow, 1h, o ns the SpringLake Golf
Resort, said Thursday as intermittent thunderstorms added
waier to his already -flooded 36-hole golf course.,

which limits SpringLake to running one pump (it has four

By ROMONA WASHINGTON
Executive Editor
AVON PARK,- Six men and one woman,
including the three incumbents, have thrown
their names into the hat for the Avon Park City
Council seats up for re-election in November.
Brenda Gray is, the only current council
member forthcoming from- the beginning
about her intentions to run for re-election.
Doug Eason had said he had no intentions of
seeking re-election, and George Hall had not
planned to run for.office, but kept the option
open if he felt it necessary to enter the race at
the last minute.
Eason has served 11 years on the city coun-
cil. Gray is just completing her third three-
year term. Hall is running for his second term
in office.
Four other candidates Doug Barnard, Ed
Dickerson, Willie B. Jenkins and Joe Wright
- have also qualified for the upcoming city
election.
Dickerson is the only one of the four candi-
dates to previously seek election to the city
council, though unsuccessfully. Previously, he
has ran for election three times as a council
member and once as mayor.

Bringing homecoming to


soldiers away from home'


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID At the
start of every school year the;
student government association
of Lake Placid High School
decides on what special proj-
ects it will take on for the year.
This year Rachel Burnett had
members of the military on her
mind. Bumett, a junior, is a co-
president of the student govern-
ment along with Stacy Davis:
andDwayne White.
"A lot of people in my youth
group (at Memorial United
Methodist Church) are in the
military." she said.
Some of those friends are far
aca\a from home in dangerous
places; others are simply far
away from home.
But what better way to reach
out to them, Burnett thought,
than "to send homecoming to
them since they can't come
home."
To that end, members of the
student government are collect-
ing shoe boxes and useful gifts
that they can put into the boxes;
gifts like hygiene items, spirit,
beads, and prepaid phone cards.
Most important, however, are
newspaper articles and this
year's homecoming moments.
The story of homecoming's
royalty and who were. elected
king and queen, for example.
And of course the story of the
game itself, and pictures of the
dance after. Anything, in other
words, that can' bring Lake
Placid High School a little clos-
er to those at a distance.
What Burnett and her fellow
students need, in addition to the
empty boxes and their contents,
is a list of former Lake Placid
students who are now serving
in the military. As important as
the name, is the address where
the individual can be reached.
Send names and addresses to
Sergeant Robert Robinson, the
Junior Army Reserve Officer

CHRISTOPHER TLiFFLE' 'Ne,-. Sunn
Rachel-Bgrnett. one of three co-
presidents ofrthe Lake Placid
High School Studeni-
Government Association, hopes
the community will support her,
and her fellow students' efforts
to bring homecoming to LPHS
graduates now serving in the
military away from home.

Training Corps instructor, who
will pass them on to the stu-
dents.
Homecoming is Friday, Sept.
22. Bumrnett said she hoped the
boxes and other supplies could
be gathered by Sept. 19.
Actually filling and sending the;
boxes will occur right after
homecoming, so the most up-
to-date information can be
included with the goodies.
Donations and addresses
may be dropped off or sent to
the school at 202 Green Dragon
Drive, Lake Placid, FL 33852.
Robinson may be reached by
phone as well. The telephone
number is 699-5010.

Commissioners to discuss impact fees


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING Impact, fees likely will be the
most talked about'agenda item Tuesday at the
regular meeting of the Highlands County Board
of County Commissioners.
During the public hearing, commissioners will
weigh the differences between two studies one
commissioned by the commission and the other
b\ the Highlands County Builders Association.
"That latter opinion as sought by the builders
because many local developers felt that Tindale-
Oliver & Associates' numbers \%ere e\orbttantlv
high and would bring growth to a standstll iii the
county. -
Goemrnment Solutions, hired by the builders
association., applied somewhat different method-
ologies than TindaleOliver & Ass,-ociates and
achieved numbers that, on the surface, seem to be
as low as 25 percent of Tindale-Oliver &
Associates'.
Commissioner Barbara Stewart, who com-
pared, the two studies line-by-line in August,


noted that in some cases. such as law enforce-
ment, Government Solutions applied impact fees
on businesses' x here none had existed.
In other examples. she pointed out that
Government Solutions' numbers were greater
than 50 percent,of Tindale-Oliver & Associates'
numbers, the level at which the commissioners
were proposing to implement the fees in January.
Barring unforeseen anomalies, the county
coniiniisioners have expressed confidence .that
impact fees w ill be adopted at some level, which
the- sa wv.ill gei the ball rolling for the county to
comply. with state-mandated concurrenc\.
Other items on the agenda include a request bN
the cit\ of Sebrin to watie the landfill tipping
fees for a residence destroyed b\ fire and the
adoption of a citation to enforce a newly adopted
parking or inance.
The HCBCC meets week at 9) a.m. Tuesday
at the Go\ernment Center on South Commerce

Ernesto's bang more of a splash .



with reports of 10 inches of rain 1'g


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING Ernesto was
more whimper than roar, creep-
ing into Highlands County
Wednesday afternoon as a trop-
ical depression rather than a
hurricane or tropical storm.
Nonetheless, the depression
found its way to the Atlantic
Ocean and threatens the
Carolinas.
Ernesto dumped anywhere
from an inch to 10 inches of,
rain on the county.
According to reports collect-
ed by the Emergency
Operations, Center from area
rain gauges, Venus received the
most rain, drawing eight to 10
inches.
Avon Park saw the least with.
one to two inches.
The EOC measured 3.82
inches on the south side of
Sebring.
"The reason for the variation
is that there are gauges in dif-
ferent areas of these' cities,
Corine E. Burgess, county pub-
lic information officer, said in
an e-mail Thursday. "So the
south may have gotten less than
the north end."
Lake Placid recorded four to
five inches, Sebring three to
four inches and Lorida four
inches.
Top wind speed recorded at
EOC .was a 42 miles an hour
gust and winds were sustained
at 26.mph.
Flooding was reported in
Venus. which Burgess said %%as
already flooded before Ernesto
came through. and in
SpringLake. which is not
allowed to use its four pumps to
capacity to remove water from

Residents of Highlands County will have
the unique opportunity to meet each other
and develop new friendships when Ridge
Florist celebrates Wednesday the 11th
anniversary of FTD Good Neighbor Day.
Ridge Florist will give away 1,000 roses
in bunches of a dozen, absolutely free to
anyone who visits the shop, while supplies
last.
There is one catch, however. Steve and

at Masters' bench rather than

COUNCIL
Continued from 1A
Wright got clearance
Monday night to run for a seat
on the city governing board
.when the current council voted
to annex his Lake Lotela prop-
erty into the city. Wright, of
V&W Farms, opposed last
month's proposed Illegal
Immigration Relief Act, which
failed by a 3-2 vote. Soon after
that decision, Wright' voiced an
interested in having his proper-
ty annexed so he could run for
office. At the Aug. 14 meeting,
his request received a 3-2 vote
at first reading with Mayor Tom
Macklin and Eason voting-
against it.
Macklin and Eason were the
two council members to vote in


Nell Roberts, the owners, of Ridge Florist,
hope the goodwill is exactly that "catch-
ing." Anyone who picks up a dozen free
roses will be asked to sign a promise to
keep one of the-roses for themselves and
give the others away to 11 different people.
FTD Good Neighbor Day is-being cele-
brated for the 11th year throughout the
United States and Canada at participating
FTD floral shops as a day of celebrating


ers and the wastewater treat-
ment plant which posed an
immediate safety and welfare
- issue for the 3,000 residents of
SpringLake.
Bill Rentel, a commissioner
on SpringLake's board of direc-
tors, testified on behalf of the
improvement district and

east of SpringLake on which
she runs Lakeside Stables and
Bo,at Rentals, testified in
defense of her injunction.

gram to look for solutions, both

Relief Act.
However, the public hearing
Monday was in Wright's favor.
Council. voted again 3-2 in
favor of Wright's- request.
Eason and Macklin again voted
against the request.
Of the handful of people who
spoke up during Monday's pub-
lic hearing, the most outspoken
was Doug Barnard, one of the
seven to qualify for election.
In a prepared .statement,
'Barnard said, "My platform is
very, very simple.
"I am running for city coun-
cil to counter the current trend
to turn a blind eye'and. deaf ear
to the problems Avon Park
faces with- growth, expansion,
illegal immigrants and special
interests. I am not Joe Wright, I

Rentel told the judge when he
took the stand, explaining that
the auxiliary pump. with a
capacity of 4,500 gallons per
minute was installed several
years ago and has been running
non-stop 'for the past two
weeks.
It discharges directly to Lake
Istokpoga via a creek, bypass-
ing Tyrrell's property.
Each main pump can 'move
water at 65,000 gallons per
minute, but they flood Tyrrell.
"It's a fair amount of

I will discuss and vote on Avon

.be fair in my exercise of official
'judgment. '
"I will do what's right. I will
not do what's popular for the
special interests."
After Monday night's meet-
ing, Barnard said he felt the
decision to annex Wright's
property was "ridiculous ...
solely for the purpose of him
running for city council."
The seventh candidate to
qualify for the Nov. 7 election is

a newcomer to the Avon Park
political arena.

that thousands of FTD Florists in North

millions of free flowers.

money," Rentel said, when
Tyrrell's attorney Kevin Ashley
asked how much: the. district
spent on engineering solutions
to the flooding.
Then, Ashley asked how
much -SpringLake has spent on
attorney fees to circumvent or
modify the injunction.
"A substantial amount,"
Rentel answered. "I wouldn't
even hazard a guess."
In May with help from the
State Attorney General's
Office, SpringLake sought, a
permanent, unrestricted flood
easement over Tyrrell's 38
acres but lost.
Rentel agreed with Ashley,'
who asked if it was "fair" to say
the district has spent more in
attorney fees than it has in engi-
neering'solutions,.
"(That's) very telling in this
case," Masters said, before rul-
ing against SpringLake. "I'm
clearly convinced that there is a
water problem. SpringLake res-
idents are at risk. Ms. Tyrrell is
at risk. I can't say SpringLake
residents are at greater risk."
She said no evidence was
presented by SpringLake attor-
ney Donald E. Hemke showing
how much water must be'
pumped to alleviate the health
and welfare threat and what
impact the pumping would have
on Tyrrell.
,'- "The evidence suggests, very,
vaguely, that Ms. Tyrrell could
suffer past injuries;" Masters
said. "Previously the message-
has been clear to SpringLake
that another recourse must be
pursued ... other than to gain
court permission to put more
.water on Ms. Tyrrell's proper-
ty."

The result, he said, is the 10 week

by having to pass the written portion of

A Kenworth tractor the pride of SFCC's training fleet. A back seat converts into a full-size bed. There
is room for a television set and DVD player, as well as the usual radio and CD player. Fully equipped, the
cab has all the conveniences of a studio apartment -7 a shower can even be installed.


ROADS
Continued from 1 1A
nation, than by any other form of transportation.
According to the American Trucking
Association, in 2005 the trucking industry
hauled 10.7 billion tons of freight, or 68.9 per-
cent of the country's total freight tonnage.
Railroads were the next busiest form of trans-
port carrying 13.2 percent.
That means there were more than 2.7 million
large tractor-trailers on the road that year, and
3.276 million truck drivers at work.
Those drivers traveled 338 billion miles in
2004. The average long-haul trucker drives
100,000 to 110,000 miles a year. Regional and
city truckers drive about 48,000 miles a year,
and the average daily run for an over-the-road
driver is nearly 500 miles.
I wish I could say that I had driven at least
one of those billions of miles.'
I had hoped to get behind the wheel when I
first met with Marty Hegwood who runs
South Florida Community College's Driving
Academy. But no sooner had he said yes, I
'could drive a circle in the confines of the park-,
ing lot, then he looked worried and changed his,
mind.
You have to have a learner's permit to learn
how towdrive, and of course I didn't have one.
Hegwood did let me sit in the driver's seat,,
and move it up and down.
That was more interesting, than it sounds. It
turns out the Kenworth cab sits on a cushion.of
air. That means the cab sometimes moves when
the underbody doesn't an odd'feeling to say.

And the floor pedal arrangementwould take
getIin, used to, no dobt. Being long and nar-
row, all the pedals looked like accelerator pedals
- for one thing. but more confusing, the brake
pedal is where the clutch pedal is in a car. That
is, you work both the brake and the accelerator
\ ith the right foot. and the clutch with the left.
For anyone who has driven a manual transmis-
sion automobile for any length of time, chang-
ing feet would be a difficult habit to break.
Hegwood was a library of information.
For example, the trucking industry uses 5114
billion gallons of fuel anrnuill, New trucks emit-
only 1/8 the pollution of heavy duty diesel
trucks built 15 years ago.
But that doesn't mean those truck' are fuel
efficient. The Ken\ronth 1.sat in, for example,
gets siL\ miles to the gallon and has a tank
capacity of 300 gallons. Tlht means a fill-up


Craig Sutter, a Sebring student at SFCC's driving
academy, practices backing in the school's parking
lot. His teacher, Marty Hegwood, is proud of:
Sutter's progress. 'He couldn't back in a straight
line when he started,' Hegwood said, 'but now he
can put that trailer just about wherever he wants,
and do that over and over.'

approaches $1,000.
Hegwood said the trucking industry spends a
little more than $74 billion each year' The total
includes. $57 billion for labor and $5.6 billion"
for fuel and oiil. The industry pays on average
$7,000 to $8,000 per truck, in taxes and fees. .
Despite the huge numbers of people already
in the field. truckers are still in high demand..
'The classroom at the driving academy is filled
with pamphlets from trucking companies adver-
tising their opportunities and benefits.
Training a trucker, however, takes time,
patience, and practice, practice, practice, That is
why Hegwood only accepts four students in .
.each class.

rest of the world, dreaming of flying down the.

AVON PARK In Okeechobee, Randy
Harden with Harden and McGee Construction
Company draws plans from start to finish for res-
idential or commercial construction.
Pit Stop Drive Thru in Avon Park was one of
those projects. So when the owners decided to
sell, Harden and Realtor Susie Hoover with Gil
Culberth Real Estate in Okeechobee decided to
jump on it.
"We felt this was a good business and the tim-
ing was right. We really like it in Avon Park. I've
always liked this area and the people, having
spent summers growing up at Lake June in Lake
Placid," Hoover said,
At Pit Stop Drive Thru, sweet and -unsweet-
ened tea by the glass or for a gallon, which is
great for a school function or holiday gathering is .
sold. There are not only fountain, drinks, but
Coke, Pepsi and 7-Up, fruit juices and slushies.
Chips, snacks, bread, bags of ice, newspapers,
gum and boiled peanuts are available. Blue Bell
ice cream is sold .in pints, or a customer can:


choose a Popsicle or an ice cream bar. Barbecue
and other varieties of sandwiches are offered. Pit
Stop also has Florida lottery tickets, cigarettes,
tobacco and beer. Free suckers for kids and bones
'for dogs are given. There's also a 49-cent special
on a variety of kids' juices and drinks.
"Most of our customers are regulars. Whether
the kids are strapped in the back or it's a handi-
capped person, this is easier and more convenient
for them, come rain or shine. We've donated to
the cheerleaders, various school organizations
and area firefighters. We've added landscaping to
improve the look. Our employees are- always
friendly and helpful. Randy and I both like a rural
community. We love Avon Park's small town
atmosphere, and we've gotten to know some
good people," Hoover said.
Pit Stop Drive Thru is at 1004 Peel St., which
is one block north of the Clock Restaurant. Call
Harden at (863) 634-7490 or Hoover at (863)

Local addictions professionals receive state recognition


Each year, the Florida-
Alcohol and Drug Addiction-
Association hosts a statewide
conference for addictions pro-
fessionals in the state of
Florida.
One of the highlights,of the
conference is the opening ses-
sion, where key professionals
are recognized- for their efforts
to advance the field. This, year,
FADAA chose to recognize two
employees of Tri-County
Human Services Inc.
Mell Williams, program
supervisor of the Polk County
Jail Alternatives to Substance
Abuse programs and the
Sebring and Wauchula outpa-
tient offices, was named the,
Professional of the Year. To be,
considered for the award, the
individual must display exem-
plary clinical skills and embody
the best our field has to offer..
Sheriff Grady Judd of the Polk
County Sheriff's office wrote a
letter of nomination on
William's behalf. In his letter,
Judd described the.success' of
the JASA programs, explaining
'that while the program saves
money for taxpayers, the real
benefit to the cinmminniti is the
program's ability to transfi)rni
lives. Of \\lijiiim. Judd said,
"Because of innovative pro-
grams and contributions by
dedicated professionals like,
Mell Williams, Polk Couni\ has
seen a consistent .decrease in
our crime rate we are safer in
Polk County tod.\, than %e
have been in. more than 30)
years. Mell has worked closely
with us through periods of
uncertain funding His determi-
nation neter \a'j'ered. He has ;
*heart for others and has demon-
strated excellence, achieve-
ment, endurance, dedication
and creatiM ir in providing serv-
ices to the inmate clients and
our community.
"Not oinl, doe.s Mr. Williams
give back to the community
through his job, but also in
actively working with the
Homeless. Coalition of
Highlands County to develop a
faith-based housing program
and in serving as treasure of a
- volunteer fire department."

visor, had this to say about
* Mell: "He has consistently
demonstrated the highest work
ethic, conscientiously complet-
ing assignments in a timely and
accurate manner. He exhibits
excellent counseling and super-
visory skills and has, a .vast
knowledge regarding addictions
and counseling. Feedback from
clients has been consistently
positive and his interactions
with staff have been outstand-
ing. I have known Mr. Williams
on a professional basis for
approximately seven years. I
have found him to possess
excellent counseling and super-
\ ilsr) skills and believe he is a
-valuable member of the addic-
tion field."
His nomination packet, noted
that "He sees the infinite worth
of each individual, meets them
where they. are and helps them
see" within themselves the best
they can be, then works with
them to see and reach their
potential.a Mell believes that
each person must actively work
to obtain and maintain their
sobrie[\. .but he. knows 'that
.with the right support, people
can thrie'"' "
.FADAA also gives a

ual who displays exemplary

D er. District .14 Substance

a letter supporting Rihn's nomi-
nation. Dwyer described the
many ways that Rihn con-
tributes to the community,
detailing the many committees
and leadership groups Rihn
serves on.
"I have found Mr. Rihn to be/
a very dedicated and outgoing
advocate for those in need ... he
is always ready to step up and
provide assistance and support
to the group (Partners in Crisis)
as needed," Dwyer said. "One,
of the hallmarks of his leader-
ship is his constant striving to
provide for expanded oppprtu-
nities for the substance abuse,
and .mental health agencies to
work together and. collaborate
to provide the best and most
comprehensive services to local
citizens."
TCHS Board of Directors
member Jack Strollo described

Strollo concluded his com-
ments by saying, "Bob has

priceless trait in a leader."

stating, "Robert C. Rihn not

Micro-irrigate to save water and improve landscape


* This is another in a series of
articles written about the new
area program called Florida
Yards & Neighborhoods.

A properly designed micro-
irrigation system will decrease
water loss from evaporation,
wind and runoff. It can also
minimize disease problems by
applying water to the root zone
of plants instead of the foliage:
Micro-irrigation or low vol-
ume irrigation is recommended
for shrub and flower beds and,
potted plants. Usually micro-
irrigation emitters have a maxi-
mum flow rate' of 0.5 gallons
per minute while traditional
lawn sprinkler heads put otit
three gallons per minute or
more.
If you have an existing irriga-
tion system you can increase
watering efficiency by retro-
fitting a micro-irrigation sys-
tem; or you can just connect the
system to your outdoor spigot.
A stand alone micro-irrigation
system can provide flexibility


in meeting variable water needs
of new, maturing and estab-
lished plants.
One of the first common
components you will need if
hooking into public drinking
water system, is a backfl6w pre-
vention devise. This devise pro-
tects public health by prevent-
ing water system contamination
and pollution. The backflow
prevention devise should be
attached between the spigot and
other components of your sys-
tem. If hooking into an existing
irrigation system, start with an
isolation valve. The next com-
ponent needed for both systems
is a filter which removes parti-
cles from water to minimize
clogging of, the emitters. After
the filter it is a good idea to
install a pressure-regulation
devise which hell, pre-. il rup-
turing of plastic tubing and con-
nections. A system hooked onto
your hose spigot will probably
need an irrigation controller to
control the duration and fre-
quency of the zone operation. If


you are hooking into
an existing irrigation f'
system it is best to f
have the micro-irriga- .
tion section as a stand
alone zone to control it
separate from your
lawn system. .
If you have an up to
date digital con-
troller on your irriga- GROW
tion system I recom- SiAn
mend adding a soil
moisture sensor that Ed A
will shut off the irri-
gation pump when
soil moisture is ade-
quate. Another, but less effi-
cient, way to shut down the sys-
tem is a rain sensor device
which senses when adequate
rainfall has occurred.
Polyethylene tubing is com-
monly used for distribution
pipe.. Emitter selection depends
on plant arrangement and,
owner preference. In-line drip
tubing is recommended for
groups of plants with similar
water needs in a grid pattern or


rows. Drip tubing is
easy to install and
water goes into the soil
*,-- with least evaporation.
Drip emitters can be
used for potted plants
or hanging baskets.
Micro-sprays emitters
are used .for large
groups of plants with
NING similar water needs
SON and they are available
in a large variety of
yen spray patterns. Their
yen main disadvantage is
that water is sprayed
into the air and is sub-
ject to some wind drift and
evaporation,
If all of this sounds too com-
plicated come. by the Highlands
County Extension Office and I
will give you a booklet on the
subject.
The Florida Yards and
Neighborhoods. program is
being implemented through
your local county extension
service in Highlands,

A right to know
In Friday's edition of the News-Sun, we introduced the
five candidates for Circuit Judge, 10th Circuit, .Groups
27 and 28.
What we told you is that Jon Kevin Abdoney, David R.
Carmichael and Ernest M. Jones are running for Group
27 and John K. Stargel and Nathaniel White are running
for Group 28. With that, we included a short little biog-
raphy on each of the candidates.
Unfortunately, that's about all that we can do ... intro-
duce them to you.
Judicial candidates are not allowed to speak on issues
to help voters make informed decisions. That may
change in future elections.
The Florida Family Policy Council filed a federal law-
suit in Florida on Aug. 28 claiming that the U.S. Supreme'
Court's 2002 ruling that questionnaires for judicial can-
didates are constitutional, is not being upheld. State judi-
cial-ethics boards are slow in complying with that ruling.
Kentucky, Kansas, North Dakota and Arkansas hae'
already decided in favor of the right of.judges to share
their views. : ,
Reasons are: understandable.for keeping judges quiet
about issues, but it does make,it difficult for voters to
become informed on the candidates when their views are
kept silent.. .
Judges do announce their views on disputed legal
issues when they rule from the bench or \\ rite an opinion,
but wouldn't it be helpful to know what those views are
before voting them on to the bench?
The voters have a right to know who they are voting
into office and what their views are ... even when it's a
judicial seat.

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


Ever feel like throwing your cell phone?


Several items that fall under
the category of strange:
In China, a woman had-a dog
that liked to crouch on the
.wheel of her car and watch her
drive. She concluded in light of
this interest that maybe the dog
wanted to learn how to drive.
So she figured she would
handle the accelerator and the
brake and allow the dog to drive
for a while. It didn't take long
before she found out why this is
not something most people do.
The dog crashed them into an
oncoming car.
Fortunately, no one was hurt,
though both cars suffered minor
damage that the dog's owner
paid to have fixed.
Now, I find the whole story
fascinating. I have taken perky
in the car with me. I have never
let 'him get near the steering
wheel. It never occurred to me
to let Perky try to drive.
Besides, Perky is too busy in
thecar to tr> to drixe it. He
spends his time in the car by: a)
searching the floor for dropped'
food: b) checking out the other
moving cars; and c) drooling all ,


Restrictions on

ATVs needed

Editor:
An open letter to Gov. Jeb
Bush:
I want to thank you for the
great job you and your cabinet
have' done for the' State' of
Florida in your last two terms. I
only hope in the next four years
that 'your successor does as
well as .you have done.
I live in Highlands County
on Lake Hill'; a 70-acre lake in
the Leisure Lakes, Lake Placid,
area. Appro\imatel.v 40 homes
surround the lake. which is a
beautiful' area on the Lake
Wales Ridge.
In the last 17 years I have
lived in Lake Placid, the state
of Florida has spent millions of.
dollars buying acreage and lots
on the Lake W\ales Ridge. In-
December 1996. thousands of,
additional acreage and lots in'
the Leisure. Lakes, area were,
bought for $4.8 million from
Avatar Leisure Lakes Inc., in
addition to 820 acres from
Florida Highlands Properties.
for $3.5 million. This property\
was. placed under the
Department of Erivironmental,
Protection's Conseration and
Recreation Lands ProgramIs
ICARL), for 1996. This ridge
was the beach of Florida a cou-
ple of million \ears ago. There
are plants and animals on the
Lake Wales Ridge that are on
the state and federal list of
endangered species. ,,
Governor Bush, we have a
problem, especially in the
immediate area of my home.
.and ,the, entire Leisure Lakes,
area. In the past five years peo-
ple riding all terrain vehicles'
(ATVs) and four-wheel Jeeps'
and trucks have 'been riding
through the woods, creeks anid
lake' bed -areas next to and
directly across the street from
our homes on Lake Hill. They
have been destroy ing the envi-
ronment and the peace and'
quiet of a country neighbor-
hood. The trails are ridden
leisurely by some, but many
people use the trails as a
motocross country race course,
racing not only on the trails, but
on. the right-of-way areas and
on the streets.
We have had some bad wild-
.fires in the past 10 years and we
. feel sure that some' of these
fires could have been inadver-
tently started from hot open
exhaust from these' vehicles.
The ATVs are especially preva-
lefit on weekends and afternoon
and evening hours sometimes
as late as 2-3 a.m. .in the morn-
ing.
Several young people have
been critically injured while
engaged in riding on these
ATVs as a driver and/or pas-
senger. Two were injured on
the road in front of our house a
few months ago. The boy and
girl were 15 years old, riding
without a helmet. The girl was
airlifted to Tampa General
Hospital Trauma Center in crit-
ical condition. Of course, rid-
ing on the road or right-of-way
is forbidden, but it's not a mov-
ing violation.
Many of the ATV riders
come from surrounding coun-


over whoever is
unlucky enough to
be keeping him
under control while
the vehicle is in
motion. ,


LAURA'S LOOK

Laura Ware


Have you ever felt like
throwing your cell phone? I will
admit that I have had fantasies
of taking Don's beeper to the
top of the Sunshine,Skyway and
tossing it over. I don't act on
that fantasy, tempting 'as it is,.
because all that would happen
is we would have to pay for
another one.
However, there apparently is
a cell phone throwing contest..
It is called the Mobile Phone'
Throwing World Championship
and it' was held in Helsinki,
Finland, last weekend. Old cell
phones are provided and con-
testants, get to pick the type of
phone to toss.
That last part caused me, to
think.'; Hot do you decide what
kind of cell phone you .should
use to tluow? \Would a srialler.
one go farther than a larger one?


Are there brands
that travel farther
than others? Does
a flip phone go far-
ther if it is closed


or open?
(Doesn't this make you want
to run out and get a bunch of
old cell phones .to throw?
Maybe it would be a great sum-
mer event for Highlands
County?)
There were several competi-
tion categories. The'winner of
,the men's division tossed his
phone an impressive 292 feet.
In the women's division, the
winner .set a world record by
pitching her phone 167 feet.
Soif you have always want-
ed to throw a cell phone, you
might want to start training for'
next year's competition. Just
.make sure you don't, need the
phone for anything, else after
you throw it.

Speaking of cell phones. a
row of spectators were detained
in an Indiana courtroom after a.
cell phone rang three times
while court w as in session.


No one confessed when
Judge Diane Boswell asked
who owned the ringing phones.
So she made the five spectators
in the noisy row sit in seats that
were normally reserved for jail
inmates until the court's morn-
ing session was over.
Two people finally confessed
to being the culprits with the
phones. One of them claimed
that the -noise the judge had
heard was his powering down
his phone. Another spectator
admitted she knew about one of
the phones but hadn't spoken
up when the jiud e asked.
All three were cited for con-
tempt' of court. One paid an
$100 fine while the other two
will do coinmtmint ser% ice.
1 Me, I will triple check to
ensure that my. phone is off or
on silent mode if I'm ever sit-
ting in court. I'd rather miss a
call then get cited for contempt.

dent. She can be contacted by

Highlands County on many
occasions because they have

Our local sheriff's depart-

can do under the existing law s.
'Numerous people have been

: What is needed is a state statute
that forbids trespassing while

ational unlicensed dirt bikes or
ATVs should be required to

should also be required by state

Most people riding vehicles
as described herein at the pres-
ent time do not carry any iden-


tification. It's difficult for la\\
enforcement to determine to
whom they are talking. I, speak
from experience. I recently
retired again from law enforce-
ment with more than 30 years
full time and 13 years as, a part-
time officer '
I am not against ridingATVs
and enjoy riding them also. I
lo1e the outdoors, and I am an
a\ id outdoorsman. I ha\ e hunt-
ed and fished all o'er the state
of Florida and man\ of the'
southern,; middle and Rock\
Mountain states. I appreciate ,
nature and the, animals that
abotind in the wild. But in order
to continue to enjoy them and
to have our children and grand-
children enjoy them, we have
to manage the land and our
people using the, land b
imposing certain restrictions on
all of us.
I ha\e a three-inch file of let-
ters, photographs and informa-
tion sent to various agencies on
the problems we have had in
this area on the subject of this
letter. I \% ill share it with any-
one you choose to investigate
our problem. I have written
many agencies in the past, but
the problems still exist. The
issues can be solved by passing
some new laws through legisla-
tion. Then our state, county and
local law enforcement agencies
can enforce the law.,
We trust that a reply will be
forthcoming from you. We
wish you the best in any future
ventures you may pursue in the
future.

Predictions are

intimidations
Editor: -
The business community is
totally opposed to the current
impact fee proposal. It has
strongly recommended a fee 25
percent of that recommended


b\ the consultants. It claims
that the original proposal
would stifle grow th. that the
county would wither a wa if
the current proposal remains
The) claim that developers and
other business people would
'stay away from Highlands
County.
This is the standard scare
tactic used to reduce any cost to
the business community. Dire
'predictions are nothing more
than' fear, mongenng to intimi-
date the county commission to
back down and do business as
usual; that is, pass the cost on
to ordinary tax pa\ ers. to
homeowners, to the little peo-
ple. To paraphrase P.T.
Barnum, "Ne\er give the ordi-
nary tax payers, the little peo-
ple,,an even break."
The tremendous clout of the
business colimunit\ portrays
the dire, consequences of this
fee proposal. "It will stifle
grow th; the taxes will increase;.
the economy wt ill stagnate. our
youth will go elsewhere to
work; people will shop in
Tampa, Orlando or Lakeland:
Developers and business CEOs
will refuse to invest here; even'
current businesses will be
forced to move.' .
Well, what has happened
without the impact fee? Our
taxes have increased; the coun-
ty is roughly $40 million
behind in infrastructure not
paid for by previous developers
and businesses. People who
have lived here 10-20 years are
still waiting to have their roads
paved; the school board has
millions in portables instead of
'permanent classrooms. The
business community even
demanded that the $50 million
'the school board borrowed for
classrooms be included in the
impact fee formula, although
the furids are for classrooms
not built for previous student
growth.
,Property tax bills increased

about 25 percent even with the.
.5 mill decrease. The insurance
companies have doubled home-
owner insurance premiums,
while the state legislature trans-
ferred the insurance compa-
nies'. liabilities to Citizens Last
Resort Insurance Program.
The little people who suf-
fered from five hurricanes the
past two years discovered that
their insurance did not cover
food damage, even though the
hurricanes blew the waters up
to a mile inland and caused
flooding from rivers, etc. The
little people discovered that
roofs went from $2,000 to
$4,000 to $6,000 for repairs,
(just one example of the hor-
rendous ordeal they lived
through); and many are still
waiting for the insurance com-
panies to put new roofs, etc., on'
their homes.
Need we mention the thou-
sands who had premiums can-
celed (part of business enter-
prise)? What about working
Americans who had their jobs
outsourced to other countries,
or had their wages reduced.
from $15-$25 an hour to $8-
$10 an hour? All of this and
more has happened in the past
six years. This cheap labor has
enriched many employers
(remember the $1 million
bonuses)? And now the busi-
ness community wants to shift


more of the impact cost for
development on to .these little
people? They're already
impoverished! Need we men-
tion inflated health care, lost
pensions, balloon mortgages
and oil/gas prices?
Well, I have news for you;
growth will come. Both coasts
are filling up and developers
will invest. Right now, growth
is happening because they want
to invest before impact fees.
The DCA has laid down a for-
mat for growth, including con-
currency. Why not put a mora-
torium on all new development
until concurrency is assured?
Give the little people a break!
Don't settle for less than 50
percent of the consultants' pro-
posal!

Day made even
more special
Editor:
Many thanks for the write up
on Beulah Mae Smith's 100th

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

Labor Day's

future
When I was growing up,
Labor Day weekend meant
summer's over, school
begins. But its. true mean-
ing is to honor laborers.
What would we do with-
out the skills and innova-
tions of those w% ho work so
hard to improve our lives,
support their families and
contribute to a better way
of life? Even after vacation,
the routine of our work and
the satisfaction of doing it
beckon us back.
However, not everyone
sees value in their %work.
'Some are simply unhappy
in their jobs. While others
associate work as the curse
God placed on mankind
%when Adam and Eve
sinned. A closer look at this
ageless store, gives a differ-
ent explanation.
God ordained %work for
man when he put Adam in
charge of the garden. This
extension of create itr and
the accompanying accom-
plishments enlarged
Adam's life.
It %was only after the fall
when Adam had disobeyed
God that the curse touched
man's work.
Yet, still, there is deep
satisfaction in a job %well
done after physically and
emotionally putting oneself
into productive activit-N.
We're often stretched to
become better and more
capable. And tond friend-
ships often develop in the
work place.
Some think labor % ill
end one da\. The. imagine
eternity as a place of bliss
0 and continual rest sort of
ethereal. But. that's not
what the Bible says. A
recent reading of "Heaven"
b\ Randy Alcorn under-
scored these biblical truths.
God promises us a new
heaven and a new earth.
Li\ ing on this new\ earth
will mean that everything is
renewed: Our minds, bod-
ies and the earth self.
We'll be productive without
the present limitations.
"'For the creation was
Subjected to frustration, not
Sb its own choice, but by
the v. ill of the one %% ho
subjected it. in hope that
the creation itself \\ill be
liberated from its bondage
to deca\ and brought into
the glonous freedom of the
children of God," as seen in
Romans 8: 20 -21, NIV
Imagine -working without
the hindrances of an aging
body. diminishing sight.
loss of hearing, pain or
decay all results of sin
and the curse.
For most of us, life is
simply not long enough to
pursue all the things \we
might like to do. But rather
than gi\ ing up on our
dreams, we can look to.a
time \%hen those dreams,
might be fulfilled in eterni-
ty. ,
How wonderful to know
that on the new earth the
things we do will have last-
ing results: that we.11 grow
and improve our skills -
alh ays looking forward to
the next task.
This new re-creation of
the earth gives Labor Day a
future. Only. perhaps, we'll
celebrate Labor Da) every
day as we experience
engaging and fulfilling
work of which we'll never
tire. Selah.

SEBRING

the first 100 enlisted men arrived in
Sebring. They had traveled in a con-
voy of trucks from Gunter Field but
permanent shelter was not yet available in the
airbase under construction seven miles east
of town.
Residents of the little 30-year-old town of
Sebring had barely nviggled through the Great
Depression, and they were ready for change.
physically and financially. Many gathered at
the downtown Circle to welcome the Noung
servicemen.
The caravan edged south through the oak
canopy that covered Southeas.t Lakeview
Drive only to set up tents in a sandy scrub.
As soon as possible they.doffed all clothing
and dashed into the clear xnaters of Lake
Jackson. Word of the migration traveled
quickly. Soon the shore \\as covered with
sightseers and the guys were forced to remain
off shore longer, than expected.
The tent site. about 75 yards from Lake
Jackson, was across the street in the area
where the current Publix supermarket and
Sherwin Williams paint store are located. A
second detachment arrived from Gunter Field
on Oct. 4, 1941. The.tents hpused, four men
each and were set up on wood floors to keep
the sand out. However, according to Francis
Greer in a recent inter% iew. sand was their
major problem. It got into their shoes, cloth-
ing and beds. It stuck to their sweaty bodies.

Sebring. The field %was not yet named
Hendricks Field.
The runwals were the first to be built at
the ne\\ base. before anything else. The first
plane to land on the airfield came in Dec. 12.
1941. It was a Vultee BT-13 with Majors
Rodieck and James Daniel Jr. aboard.
This %would be the third area know n as
Tent City in Sebring: the first being on
Lake jiew in the area of Park Street before
housing could be provided for the first set-
tlers. The second Tent City was located at the
intersection of Rose Avenue and Eucalyptus
Street and running parallel to the Atlantic
Coast Line Railroad tracks. The Tent City
created in September of 1925. %was necessary
due to the influx of tourists before hotels and'
rooming houses could handle the response to

Don was upset.
This wasn't the first time that one of
his dental implants had fallen out. It had
cost him a small fortune to have his teeth
done not to mention the time and dis-
comfort.
But, his problematic dental history
went back to infancy when his mother's
RH-negative factor caused him not to
have. any enamel .on his first teeth. Now
at 54, he i as still experiencing the "fall-
out."
The dentist had told him not to smoke
once he had implants as it would weak-
en his gums. Don really tried. But con-
tinual stressful situations caused him to
hold onto the harmful habit.


However. even the
dentist admitted that
this ne\w development
had more to do ~ ith
his history than hiNs
habit. It was 'some
consolation; but, not
much.
He dreaded getting
all his top teeth pulled.
But, he was equally
concerned about
adjusting to the plate.


His wife, Ann, was .
a constant encouragement to him. She
knew he had been through so much with
his mouth. She'd felt every needle with
him. And this day would be no different.
But, they couldn't have anticipated what
would happen afterwards.
Don had been given medication to
take prior to the extractions. It had made
him relax and deal with the many nee-
dles it took to numb the upper portion of
his face. Everything went well.
Ann was right beside him to steady
him and get him home to rest when he
left the dentist's office. He had a full set
of teeth for probably the first time in his
life.
Surprised at how well he felt when he
got home, he told Ann, "I think I'll make
myself a nice cup of hot coffee."
She thought for a moment and replied,


S"Don, whx don't you
have something cold
instead?" She wasn't
Sure whyv she suggest-
ed that. But, in 'a
-moment they'd both
know.
Don loves his coffee
boiling hot. As he put
the cup to his lips to
JTli take the first swallow,.
u Anne looked at him
LRH, .. and yelled, "No!"
It took Don a
moment, but he followed her' frantic
movements and words arid put the cup
down.
Tears spilled down Ann's face as she
saw Don's upper lip swell and blister..
He was so numb; he literally had his
upper lip submerged in the boiling liquid
and had felt no pain.
Now, instead of just recovering from
the extraction and' adjusting to the new
set of teeth, he had second degree burns
to his upper lip.
Every .time Ann looked at him she
cried. "It's my fault. I shouldn't have let
you have the coffee."
But Don countered, "It's not your
fault. I made the choice to have the cof-
fee. I should have listened to you in the
first place."
Anne couldn't look at Don without

Something smells

Judy Nicewicz, of Sebring, meets One Stroke artist Donna Dewberry
during the Super Education Convention in Orlando.


Nicewicz takes advantage

of One Stroke training


N\ews-Sun
SEBRING Judy Nicewicz
has returned this past week
from Super Education
Convention with designer
Donna Dewberry at the Rozen
Plaza Hotel in Orlando.
Dewberry,, one of the most
innovative artists of home
decor, creates incredibly simple
one-stroke, never-take-your-
brush-off-the-paper designs for
beautiful painted teams that will'
make any house a showpiece.'
She attended one of many
classes using the new fabric*
paint that will be available to'
the painting market soon. There
were many new classes and
vendors with new supplies, for'
all the crafting needs. *.
A workshop will be planned
for One Stroke Painting on
cookies and cakes as soon as


the supplies arrive. Everyone
will be able to create their own
party theme and decorate
everything to match.
Many new products were
unveiled for the In-Home Arts
Program. New hostess gifts,
jewelry painting and scrap-
booking, as well as new One
Stroke. Painting surfaces. Many
of these products are not avail-
able in any craft store.
A new list of classes will fol-
low as soon as allthe new sup-
plies arrive from'the vendors..
Due'to new owners and man-
agement at the Alligator
Antique Mall, Nicewicz will be
relocating all my' classes and
supplies to her home studio as
of Friday, Sept. 1. For any fur-
ther information on products
and classes, call Nicewicz at
273-1339 or 386-0123.


Mulch ... I use a lot of it in
the garden, and we had loaded
bags of it into our trunk numer-
ous times, but now it was high
summer and the trunk mulch,
unfortunately, was forgotten.
My first inkling that something
wasn't right was the very aro-
matic smell -of the car every
time I got in it. Was it some
leaves from plants' we had
brought home in the back of the
car? Carefully cleaning out the
floor of the back seat made no
difference. Finally we remem-
bered the mulch, and even
though we vacuumed the trunk
after pulling the bags out, the
aromatic smell still lingers.
I'm sure a dog's nose is much
more able to pinpoint scents,
but that's not an ability I would
covet. Jane Belk Moncure
writes about the many, things
your nose can identify through-
out the year by their smells in
"What Your Nose Knows!"
Science class project could
explore the olfactory sense
using "Science Fair Success
With Scents, Aromas, -and
Smells." Kimberly Jane Pryor's
book "Smelling" covers
smelling danger, smell and
taste, smell and memory, even
protecting your nose.
Animal lovers will enjoy.


Deborah DeFord's "I
Wonder Why Skunks
Are So Smelly: And
,Other Neat Facts
About Mammals."
The world is differ-
ent after sundown, as
"Reading the
Outdoors at Night"
guides us in explor-
ing after dark, inter-
preting the sights,
sounds and smells of
night, and under-
standing the noctur-
nal behavior of ani-
mals and plants.

Backyard habitat ponds attract wildlife


Creating a backyard pond is a
natural, relaxing and scenic
addition that can provide inter-
est and enjoyment. A backyard
pond is a great way to attract
wildlife to your yard.
There are many different
styles and construction tech-
niques to choose from when
creating a pond: preformed,
cement, or lined ponds.
Preformed ponds are a great
option and are readily available
at your local home improve-
ment store. They are usually
constructed from fiberglass or
PVC and can be placed above
ground or sunk into the ground.
The main advantage of pre-
formed ponds is that they are
very rugged. The disadvantage
is they limit your creativity" in
designing a pond. However,
more shapes and sizes are
becoming available as they gain
popularity.
A cement pond requires more


tinie and money to install, but
they are very durable. After dig-
ging the pond the inside is lined
and sealed with cement. The'
.cement should be at least four
inches thick and reinforced with
chicken wire or hardware cloth.
The advantages of cement
ponds are that the design
options are almost unlimited
and it is very durable. The dis-
advantages are thai cement
ponds are permanent or at least
hard to remove and can be
expensive.
Another 'construction option
is lined ponds. After the hole is
dug a durable liner is stretched
across the top and filled with
water. The liner conforms to the
shape of the hole, so shape and
design options are almost limit-
less. Liners are sold at home
improvement stores and are
available in a kit, that include
the pond liner, pump, and foun-"
tain attachments; The main dis-


advantage is the liner
can be punctured and .
the water will drain
out of the pond.
If you are not
using a preformed
pond," you will have
to decide how deep to
dig your pond. A
backyard habitat N
pond does not have to NEWS
be large if supplying T
a water source is the
goal; a 3-foot diame- WATE
ter, 6-inch deep pond
will attract a lot of Jennife
animals. However, if -
you wish to provide a *
place for aquatic wildlife to
live, make the pond as large as,
you can. Common regrets of
backyard pond owners are that
the pond was .too small or too
shallow. Minimum depth for
fish is 18 inches; a deep end of
two or three feet is recommend-
ed. In addition to size, a pond

with varying depths.
will be utilized by a
wider variety of crit-
ters.
If you provide a
shallow area, birds
will use it as a bath.
Frogs, toads, sala-
manders and turtles
may also set up home
in your pond. The
water moccasin, or
cottonmouth, is
rarely seen in back-
yard ponds. If you are
planning on adding
fish to your pond,
native fish are the


best choice. If you choose gold-
.fish or k6i,; keep 'in mind that
brightly colored fish are
extremely vulnerable to preda-
tors especially in a small, shal-.
low pond, so don't be shocked,
if your fish start disappearing.
Moving water in the form of
waterfalls or fountains is often


desired, but it is not necessary
for the pond to function. A well
planted pond, with just a few
fish, will become. a ,balanced
system on its own, and water
quality will only be a problem
is the fish are overfed.
If fountains or waterfalls are
desired, then keep in mind that
the pond \% ill have to be located
near a source of electricity. In
addition, the 'cost of the pump
and electricity to power it
should be added to the total cost
of the pond; Filters can be:
attached to the intake end of the
pump, and will assist in main-
taining the water quality of the
pond.
Local nurseries may, have a
selection of aquatic plants you
can use in your pond. Use only
native plants. Natives are hardy
and typically survive over win-
ter in the backyard pond, unlike
most non-native, tropical
species. Also use submerged
pots of water lilies, duck potato,


pickerelweed, 'and other natives
at the recommended depths:
Pots may need to be supported
by rocks or bricks. Plants
.should cover 50 to 70 percent of
the water surface.

'as Crafter of the

Month

LAKE PLACID The
Crafter of the Month at the
Caladium Art and Crafts
Cooperative for September is
Patsy Peters, a longtime mem-
-ber of the Caladium Co-op.
After retiring from the
teacher profession, Peters


decided that she would do all of
the things she didn't have time
to do when teaching. What she
hadn't had time for was sewing
and making useful crafts. When
the Caladium Art and Crafts
opened, Peters joined as an
associate member, because she
thought it was such a neat idea.
Soon she began to make items
and didn't know what to do
with them. The Caladium Art
and Crafts Cooperative was the.


prefect solution.
Peters enjoys making items
that are useful such as, baby
bibs, tepees for children, plastic
bag holders, bun servers, .T-
shirts, 'crocheted and knitted
dish cloths, and most of all the
nylon net scrubbies.
Having recently married, her'
husband taught her to make
beads from paper.' So she makes
necklaces from, beads made
from her church bulletin. She
also makes necklaces from


Styrofoam.
Peters teaches a class at the
co-op on making rag rugs using
a toothbrush as the. needle. Her
next class is at 9:30 a.m.
Wednesday, Sept. 6. For details,
call the co-op at 699-5940.
If interested in seeing her
items, visit-the co-op. It is open
seven days a week from 9 a.m.
to 4 ,p.m. Monday through
Saturday and from 1-4 p.m.
Sunday.

TENT
Continued from 1C
units for civilians and officers
to be located on Lake Jackson
and for 193 family units east of
Sebring on State Road 8.
Several Sebring adults hold
fond childhood memories of
playing in the dunes and sand
pits that were created behind
the homes built on State Road/
8 and those off airport road
near the base. The officers,
* quarters were located on the
shore of Lake Jackson in an
area that was to be known as
Snob Hollow.
Sebring came alive again,
and met the challenge with
business, activity, new homes,
new buildings, recreational
facilities and educational build-
ings. A beautiful stucco'build-
ing at the City Pier became the
center for the United Service
Organization, offering dances
and other activities for service
men and women. Bands played
in the Band Shell at the City
Pier.
A.W. Pollard worked at the
air base, has studied its history
and has accumulated a library
of photographs and literature of
much historical value. In a
contribution to this article he
mentioned that when Lt. Col.
Carl S. McDaniel assumed
command of the field on Dec.
6, 1941;,Lt. Col. Rodieck was
reassigned to a staff position in
Washington.,
And then it became apparent
that the cost to stabilize the
entire airfield so that it could
be used for basic trainers
would be prohibitive. When on
Dec. 8, war was declared, this
became a priority for four-
engine pilots and crews.
Four runways had already
been built but the ground was,
still not suitable for a basic
training school. The command-
ing officer was a four-engine
pilot.and was aware of the
need for a four-engine training
school. McDaniel immediately
created a plan to begin training
25 cre s the first month and
increasing monthly to 150 per
month. :
The colonel flew to
Washington to detail his plan
before the commanding general
of Army Air Forces. When he
returned to Hendricks Field on
Jan. 29, 1942, with approval
for combat crew training, he
was flying the first. B-17 to
land on this field.

Benefits of the base
Long range benefits from
the military base at Hendricks
Field beyond the immediate
financial jumpstart, cannot be
enumerated.. But a few of them
are homes and barracks build-
ings that remaining usethe
growing airport, now a region-
al airport with its potential for
various types of ventures, other
small businesses having
matured and continue operat-
ing. ,
The local Veterans of
Foreign Wars building is com-
posed of barracks buildings,
one on either end of\ a hastily
erected base unit. It is on
Southeast Lakeview Drive ,
across the street from the loca-
tion of the enlisted men's Tent
City of 1941.
S Some 39 Sebring women
married mer from the base,
according to A.J. Pollard who .
has authored a book on
Hendricks Field. Several cou-
ples were married in the base
chapel..

Menus prepared
Francis Greer was born in
Brewton, Ala. After high
school he enlisted in the mili-
tary service and wvas trained ini
Maxwell Field, Ala. He .was
sent to Fort Lee, Va. and on
Dec. 6, 1941, he came to
Sebring via the Atlantic Coast
Line and was trucked to-Tent -
City. His outfit of approximate-
ly 100 medics included 27
African-Americans. They were
housed separately.but w worked
and trained together. Part of
their mission here was learning


to prepare menus for various
diet requirements.
Greer said it was impossible
to keep the sand out of their
beds; they drilled for two
months in the sand so really
enjoyed their swim every
morning. He also mentions the
speed in which the runways -
were built and buildings erect-)
ed. The base water supply
came from DeSoto City and
part of his job was to guard the
water tank at night.
Greer admitted that the food
was good and well protected


The United Service Organization building, which is now a part of
the Highlands Little Theatre in Sebring, was used for social events
for the military sen ice personnel during World War II, frdm 1942
to 1945. A few years later it was home for the Young Married
Couples recreation, then became Teen Town before it was renovated
by the Highlands Little Theatre group.

sped down the narrow two-lane
highway toward Naples located
on the beautiful shore of
Southwest Florida. Then there
was a loud bang and he
stopped. He had hit a cow
wandering across the road. His
brush with the Florida
Highway Patrol was an experi-
ence he will never forget. The
officer lectured him that he
can't run around hitting cows
in Florida like this. After some
very unsettling episodes he,
finally reached Naples. Years
later, he returned to Sebring to
view the changes.
One Hendricks Field trainee,
Stanley F. Kavan returned dur-
ing his Christmas vacation to
visit the area where he married
his beautiful bride and honey-
mooned in the Tropical Hotel
on North Commerce Street. He
was disappointed that the hotel
was no longer there. The
chapel at Hendncks Field
where he and Henrietta were
married also was missing, but
he enjoyed the other changes
about the ci[\.
A letter received after his
\isit included a photograph of
his B-17 crew in full uniform
and an account of his missions
w ith a true list of all of their
runs. The tour required 35 tar-
get trips i you must drop the
load or get fired upon. other-
w ise no credit before returning
to the United States for reas-


signment or release from duty,
he wrote. He is mentioned in
the "Flying Fortress" a book by
Edward Jablonski, which he
says is a nifty account of the
B-17 history from start to fin-
ish.
Kavan wrote, "When we
received our overseas'orders
we were assigned to a brand
new B-,17 for a destination that
we later learned was Italy.
From Hunter Field, Ga. we
flew in Newfoundland,'to the
Azores, to Morocco, to Tunisia
and finally to Foggia, Italy.
That was late September 1944.
"In Italy, we flew the highest
and longest B-17 runs of the
war. Many of the runs were


eight hours plus and since we
had to hurdle the Alps both
ways, fuel to get home could
become a real worry." He
details the dangers. of flying
over the Alps and his good. for-
tune to have weathered it all
and to come back to his family
unscathed.
When the writer commented
that his incredible signature
indicated an artist nature his
reply was "Strange that you
should ask. My book of poems
has just been published."
The book contains unusual
topics, such as the emotions
created by jet streams follow-
ing his B-17 high above the
earth.

Lake Placid holds off determined Devils


By SCOWT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK At least the
Lady Red Devils are giving fans
their money's worth.
For the fourth time in five match-
es this season, Avon Park pushed an
opponent to the' limit only to come
up short as Lake Placid escaped
with a 25-18, 26-24, 23-25, 25-27,
15-9 win Friday night.
"We had too many errors and our
momentum was gone. We played
off-key tonight," said Avon Park
coach Christie Hipps after her team
fell to 1-4 one night after winning
in a three-game sweep at Hardee.
"They work so hard and some-
times when we get in the game, we
get confused 'on our positions and
where we're supposed to, go.
"You have your ups and downs
.and tonight we had the downs.
We've. just got to pick ourselves
up."
The Lady Devils didn't have


many problems early, sprinting to
an 8-1 lead in the first game and led
12-7 before the Dragons woke up
and captain Allison Gilde served
Lake Placid to a staggering 11-0
run that made it 18-12.
Lake Placid (4-1) maintained the
lead the rest of the way, with
Tiffany Bisby ending the game on
an ace.
Avon Park used a big run in the
second game, getting three aces
from Missy Lander in' a 7-0 spurt
that put the Devils* up 15-12. A Kysi
Wooden kill and Tiffiny Gregor',
ace put the Devils one point away
from the win with a 24-22 lead, but
a rafter-rattling Wooden spike that
would have ended the "game was
just inches outside the line.
The Dragons made the most of
their second life as a net violation
followed by a rotation violations on
the Devils made it 25-24 for Lake,
Placid and Gilde ended the game
with an ace.


With their backs to the wall, the
Devils fought back. Using good
defense by Mary Rose Heston and -
some solid play at the net to take
the third game, Avon Park then
scored three straight points the
final, two on a Wooden kill and a,
Michelle Caibio ace to win the
fourth game and tie the match.
The Dragons ran out to a 4-1 lead
in the fifth game, however,, and
never looked back.
"Avon Park gave us all we could
handle," Lake Placid coach
Marilyn Jones said. "Our girls did-
n't slack up in that third game.
Avon Park just fought really hard.
Avon Park has come a long, long
way. This was a good win."
Tara Weeks led the Dragons with
11 kills, followed by Gilde with 10:
Jackie Berard added 40 assists.
Tara had /an excellent game at
the net, Rachel Carrt stepped up and
Jackie ik always very steady," Jones
said. ,

McKibben's field goal


with 17 seconds to go

lifts Avon Park to win


Running back Virgil Cooper hurdles a fallen Red Devil teammate Friday night in Okeechobee.


By MARCUS WILKINS
Sports Writer
OKEECHOBEE -- The
k lighty Case of Nild' ile lure
may have struck out, but Casey
McKibben stepped up to the tee
on Friday night with 17 seconds
left on the clock hoping to
rewrite the storybook.
Capping off i 'i'l iilling final
eight minutes of play against
Okeechobee, the diminutive
McKibben put' the Red
Devils on his Sh.oiulder' Avon
Sand split the .uprights
from 32 yards out for a-
10-7 victory. Okeed
Add to the drama the
fact that this was only. '
McKibben's second foot-
ball game ever, and it's no won-
der the Avon Park sidelitie
erupted in pandemonium.
After three quarters of defen-
sive football fought in the
trenches, Avon Park found .its
offense when it counted; scor-
ing .10 unanswered points in the,
fourth quarter.
Pivotal turnovers paved the
way for the win. A fumble
recovery by Altus Lee on a punt
set up the tying 50-yard drive
News-Sun capped by T.K. Hill's 1-yard
quarterback sneak. On the fol-


lowing Okeechobee possession,
Vincent Perry snagged an errant
pass troin quarterback iGareti
Mladligal, giving the Devil's. a
chance for the go-ahead field
goal and lMlcKibben did the rest.
"I was so nervous," said an
.elated McKibben after the
game. "I just did what my
coach told .me to do.
Concentrate, kick the ball and
keep my head down."
Okeechobee did all its
Park scoring in the first quar-
-- ter and the running back
tandem' of A.J. Wright
chobee and Lonnie Pryor looked
. as though they would be
a handful for Avon Park
all night long. On their
third possession, the Brahmans
took over at the Red Devil 39
and used' the ground attack to
take the lead as the first quarter
expired with a 16-yard touch-
down from Wright.
Avon Park's offense was
sporadic early on as Hill strug-
gled to find his passing rhythm,
but the defense managed to
erase the mistakes, especially in
the second half.

Palmetto sacks Sebring's


late comeback attempt


By JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING Brandon Thompson's
39-yard field goal on the final play of
the first half proved to be the difference
in the game as Palmetto held on to beat
Sebring 31-28 in a non-district contest at
Firemen's Field Friday night.
Midway through the fourth period,
Sebring's' defense held on fourth
down and Sebring took over on its Palm
own 12-yard line and began driv-
ing down the field, aided by two 10
personal foul penalties by the vis- Seb
iting Tigers and a 27-yard pass
play from quarterback A.C. s
Wilson to tight end Kyle Hoffner.
Faced with a fourth-and-1 on the
Palmetto 16, Sebring head coach Jared
Hamlin decided to try and pick up the
first down instead of attempting a 36-
yard Joseph Lezama field goal from the
left ha.rli naLk.
Wilson ran the ball on a keeper, but
was stopped. The Blue Streak defense
got the ball back on the Palmetto 38 fol-
lowing another strong series, but the
ensuing drive 4nd the game ended with
Wilson getting intercepted by Renard


Bell on a fourth-and-long depcration
pass.
Hamlin knew immediately after the
game played out that he should have
gone for a field goal and the tie. But in
the trenches during the 'game with 6:59
left and down by three, the head Blue
Streak believed his highly talented quar-
terback could get the first down and the

victory.
"It just came down to there at
the end (when) I probably should
have tried to kick that field goal,"
Hamlin said. "I thought we were
close to the first down. There was
a lot of time left (6:59); I was try-
ing for the win.


"It's tough ... we struggled in the first
half and we turned that around and only
gave up the one score. Our offense start-
ed playing better in the second half. We
got some scores, some big plays and got
a special teams score."
After trailing 24-14 during halftime,
Sebring's defense only allowed one sec-
ond-half TD, and that one was aided by
a holding call against Sebring after forc-
ing a punt that Palmetto turned into the
winning points. Tiger quarterback Brian


that featured some fine runs by T.J.
Williams and a few key' pass comple-
tions before Wilson slid into the end
zone from the 1. Wilson's scrambling

Avon Park running back Kaneef Caldwell fights for extra yards Friday night in Okeechobee.


KICKS
Continued from 1D
through the Okeechobee offensive line to drop
Wright for a loss on two consecutive plays to start
the second half. He then teamed up with Devon
Wilson for a sack late in ithe third throwing the
Brahmans for a 10-yard loss.
The game-tying drive featured the strong run-
ning of Virgil Cooper, a 15-yard gain .from Josh
Austin and three straight attenipt, to punch it in
from first-jnd-eoal until Hill scored with 6:03


left in the game.
Perhaps the most ominous moment came on
the extra point when McKibben's kick just bare-
ly cleared, the cross-bar. Other coaches may have
thought twice about putting the team's fate in the
hands of an unproven rookie.
Coach Earnest Perkins' faith in his mini-secret
weapon never wavered, however.
"Both football teams courageously battled, but
in the end, there was a little guy named Casey
that came through," said Perkins, barely able to
contain his excitement. "High' school football
2006 -simple as that."

Lezama's kick w'as again per-
fect with 38 seconds left in the
third quarter.
While the defenses ruled the
fourth quarter, the first half %as,
just the opposite. with both
teams dazzling the crowd. The
Tigers,. particularly 6-foot-4
Hills and quarterback Smith.
were doing a lot more dazzling
during the first 16 minutes of
the contest,. appearing at times
able to score at %\ill.
Smith. a 5-11 junior, finished
the game 10-of-26 passing for
200 yards and three TDs. He hit
tight end Brandon -Holcomb for
32 yards after the ball had been

pass to Bantrez Yarn.
Thompson's kick w\as good for
a 7-0 lead with 10:14 left in the
opening period.
Hill hooked up with running
back Donald Campbell for a 34-
yard pass play on third down
and then hit Hills for a 26-yard
TD catch with 3:58 left in, the
first to make it 14-0
Thompson's next kick was
lucky for the Blue Streaks as
Robinson hauled the football in
at the 8 and broke four'or five
tackles as he raced along the
Tigers' side the field all the way
for an amazing 92,yard touch-
down return. Lezama's kick
closed the gap to 14-7 with 3:39
left in the first period.
Palmetto marched right
down the field with a seven-
play, 80-yard drive capped by a
perfect Smith pass to Hills for a
21-yard TD with 5:39 to'go in
the second quarter. Thompson's
kick raised the lead to 21-7.
Wilson and the Blue Streaks
came' storming back late in the
