Navy reverses course on



planned live bombing


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
AVON PARK A week
ago, live ordnance bombing at
the Avon Park Air Force Range
wasn't "fiscally viable" for the
Navy.
The tide has turned. '
"I can guarantee you with my
career that this is set in stone,"
U.S. Fleet Forces Command,
spokesman Jim Brantley told
the Ne, s-Sun on Wednesday. "I-
just found out today."
Brandles said $2 million for
infrastructure and instrumenta-
tion are "set aside" in the
Navy's 2007 budget to support,
live bombing exercises that
could begin in Fall 2008.
Just a week ago, those funds
were stowed away for other
Navy missions.
When asked where the
money was found, Brantley
said he didn't'know, that he is
not privy to that process.

The race will be the first of 10 local chapter

until late May-early June. ,
At Saturday's event, there will be seven differ-
ent classes of racing
The classes start with the kids class (for ages
12-16), followed by the entry-level class for
adults. Mowers in both of those classes will run
anywhere from 22-25 mph on the straight-aways.
Following those two classes are the five "pre-
pared classes," which are A, S, C, B, and factory
experimental classes.
The A production mowers are powered at no
more than 8.5 horsepower,, and they will runr
abou4'30-35 mph. '... -

it was important to the Navy to
fund high explosive .delivery
training. "Avon Park's geo-
graphic placement, more than
any other east coast venue, best
supports the dynamic air-wing
under way schedules."
The Navy currently uses the
range for several exercises
annually including ,its
Compttiex and Atlantic Strike
exercises, flying in the airspace
over 'Highlands County and
releasing inert bombs.

demolition personnel, two or
three, may be permanently sta-
tioned at the bombing range to
clean up after the exercises and
maintain and improve the
range, he said.
In addition to the funds allo-.

range for live ordnance,
Brantley said an additional $1
million annually will be spent
to keep the site "the largest

'Power center' eyes Circuit City


Olive Garden also on short

list of potential stores

coming to Highlands
By KEVIN J. SHUTr
News-Sun
SEBRING Olive Garden and Circuit City
are among a list of prospective businesses that
may move into a shopping "power center."
Other potential .shops include Books-A-
Million, PetSmart, Michael's, Ross, Marshall's
and Bed, Bath and Beyond.
"They have a site plan and they're marketing it
with a lot of exciting stores," -Jim Polatty,
Highlands County development services director,
said. .
The, so-called power center Shops at Shelby
Crossing will be south' of Lowe's Home
Improvement on the east side of U.S. 27.
According to the site plan, three' outparcels
will line the highway. Points of entry are pro-
posed at Thunderbird Road'and from U.S..27.
"Circuit City is very serious about coming to
the city," county engineer Ramon D. Gavarrete
said Wednesday, explaining that he spoke, sepa-
rately with store representatives in recent weeks
during their visits here., "Olive Garden would be
one of the'so-called outparcels."


Spokesmen for both businesses did not com-
ment on the visits.,
"We do that in so many cities," Mara Frazier,
spokesperson for Olive Garden said of canvass-
ing visits, neither confirming nor denying that it
is targeting Sebring. "We'd hate to say something
-then not come."
Stephanie Nightlinger also said she had no.
knowledge of Circuit City's visits here.
"They are probably two .to four months from
securing permits from' .us," .Gavarrete said
Thursday, referring to the "big developer" who is
expected to plat the land into subdivisions for'
resale or lease to a variety of national merchants.
According to marketing material at
LoopNet.com, Shops at Shelby Crossing are
expected to open in July 2007. .
"Not unless they hire the same contractors as
Lowe's," Gavarrete said, when asked if the open-
ing date is realistic considering that ground's not
broken, permits aren't pulled and county com-'
missioners. haven't approved. "Lowes came in
and they worked 24 hours for the first couple
months." i
The shopping center boasts 47,000 square feet,
which can be parceled down to 3,000 square feet.
LandQwest Commercial is listed as the devel-
oper and All-Star Properties' John Borgemeister,|
of Sebring, is the local agent handling sales.

"The First Baptist Early
Education Center of Lake,
Placid celebrated its 25th
anni ersary Tuesday night:
The Early Education Center
celebrated its anniversary by
having an open house and cook-
out at the facility's playground.
Parents and children went over
the history of the facility. Then
the parents were dispersed to
classrooms for an orientation
on the facility, so they can have
firsthand knowledge of what
.their children experience when
enrolled.
After that, there was a cook'-
out on the playground, which
was attended by the two women,
who started the facility, Nellie
Calloway 'and Laura Gould.


"
We've updated the cl e-


rooms in the last couple of
years," Vicki Nettles, who has
been at the Early Education
Center for 21 of its 25 years,
said. "just being 'able to replace
things that needed to be
replaced."
But it's not just normal book
learning being done at the Early
Education Center.
"We incorporate God in all of
our lessons," Nettles said,"and
teach from the Bible."
-Many prominent community
,people come out for the chil-
dren as well. Ambulances and
.fire trucks have been brought
out in the past for children, to
see.
: Nettles said not, a whole lot
has changed about child care in
her years at the center, other


merits. National and state regu-
lations have changed .signifi-
cantly over the Nears. Teachers
are now required to have more
degrees and college credits than
they did in the past. Th chil-
dren, however. ha\e stayed the
same.
The center currently enrolls
45 children for day care, and 20
for afterschool care. This has
been the enrollment numberfor
quite some time, Nettles said.

Apple Festival brings northern


culture to
By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun .
SEBRING The aroma of
baked apple dumplings and the
aura of Christmas and theholi-
day season are filling the large
-activity center of the Palmsof,
Sebring Retirement Commun-,
ity during the 10th annual
Apple Festival, currently under
way.
This event, sponsored by the,
activities department of, the
Palms, was initially the brain
child of the previous activities
director,_ Lester Ke'sselring.
This year, however, it will be
directed for the first time by his
predecessor, Carol Kline.
"It brings back memories for
a lot of people," Kline said.
"My favorite' saying about this
fund-raiser is. thai 'it is a labor
of love.' It is a lot of 1xork but
the residents enjoy it and they
benefit from it tremendously in
a variety of ways."
Proceeds from the event are
used to purchase special items-
for residents which otherwise
would not be possible.
In Kesselring's home state of
Pennsylvania, apples were syn-
onymous to fall and fall festi-
vals, but here in The Sunshine
State citrus fruits dominate, and
the only places to find apples
are grocery stores. The Palms,
Apple Festival gives residents
of Highlands County an oppor-
tunity to experience, at least to
a small degree, a northern fall
tradition.
Kesselririg couldn't have had
a clue just how much southern
folks, living in an area smoth-


Highlands
ered with orange 'groves, would
take to the Apple Festival -when
he launched the first one..
That year Kline said a yolun-
teer made and sold maybe a few
hundred apple dumplings: but
due to the enthusiastic
respoirsei which has gro%\n over
the .years, they no'w purchase
pre-made dumplings that they
finish off in the oven.
Northern tradition
comes to county
"Last year we sold 1.300,"

Kline said. -'And this year
we're shooting for 1.500."
In keeping with the apple fes-
ti als of the north, not only will
there be. apples and :apple
dumplings for sale, but home-
made apple butter and apple
jelly made fresh by some of the
volunteers, as well as apple
cookies of every kind imagina-.
ble. apple pies, apple cakes, and
-e en loales.homemade bread.
If the 'apple goodies aren't
motivation enough to get peo-
ple to attend, the event is also a
hugecraftshow.
"This year's theme will be
snowmen," Kline said. "The
,* a


County
focal:point will be an eight-foot
snow man in the center of .the
room."
Craft items will include
ceramics, wreaths. handmade
tote bags, quilts, a vast selection
of Christmas ornaments., ,I
andc.Thanksgi.ing .tems. J
orn-thents. "all' bancgifi,
apple place mats. 'benc&ne,
carts, lamps, and much, much
more. '
"I also pre-purchase some
things in bulk at \% wholesale cost
so that I can pass the sa\tngs
along by selling them at a good
rate to visitors or people who
come," Kline said. "We will
also have probably 100 to 200.
dried floral arrangements ,made
here."
The residents not onI partic -
ipate in the festii al eer'\ ear
in one; form or another, but
Kline said this event can, raise
enough money) to carry *the
activities ,throughout the year,
providing residents with special
events and programs to enhance
their quality of life.

Special to the News-Sun
The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement, DeSoto
County Sheriff's Office, and the
Hardee County Sheriff's Office
announce the conviction of
Thomas Jessie Crews, Jr., 41.
for the second-degree murder of'
Sondra' Denise *Barrington.
The trial, held in Polk,
County due to a change of
,vnue motion, concluded
Tuesday evening after, the six-
person jury deliberated for less
than four hours. The jury
returnedL a verdictt of guilty.
Crews is -scheduled to be sen-
tenced Friday, Oct. 20.
On July 2004, a Hardee
County Grand Jury indicted
Crews for the murder of 20-
year-old Barrington. FDLE
special agents, Hardee County
Sheriff's Office and DeSoto
County Sheriff's Office detec-
tives*'arrested Crews July 21,
2004, after he left his place of
employment at Olliff's Tree
Surgeon in Wauchula.
*On Oct. 11, 2002, the parents
of, Barrington notified the
Hardee County Sheriff's Office
that their daughter was missing.I
Barrington was scheduled to
attend a court hearing that day
in Hardee County regarding a
domestic violence' dispute
between her and .Crews.
Barrington neter showed up.
Crews and Barrington had' a
previous Iel.,tionship 'that has
been described as tumultuous.
They lived together on and off
in Zolfo: Springs and shared
custody of their 3-year-old son,
both of which h fueled problems
causing the police to be called
more than a dozen times related
to domestic violence.,
Court injunctions ordered
Barrington and Crews to not
have contact with one another.
Both violated court injunctions.
Crews was placed on county
probation, which was violated
several time's resulting in his
incarceration. On the,. day
Barrington was reported miss-
ing, Crews was scheduled to
have another violation of proba-
tion hearing in which
Barrington was expected to tes-
tify against Crews. Crews


appeared at'the court hearing
and, in spite of Barrington's
absence, was still convicted of
%iolating his probation and sen-
tenced to an additional %\eek in
jail.
The Haidee Counit Sheriff's
Office began the inmestigauicn
into Barrington's disappear-
ance. On Oct. 10, 2002,
Barrington left her place of
employment at the DeSoto
Memorial Hospital in. Arcadia
at approximately 6 p.m. She
was last seen at about 6:30 p.m..
standing outside her silver Kia,
pulled off of U.S. Highway 17,
just south of the Hardee County
line, in a load ConstuLciiori site.
The following day, the
DeSoto Count) Sheriff's Office
reported finding Barrington's
car abandoned along Highway
17 in DeSoto County with her
purse and other belonging still
inside. The Haidee County
Sheriff's Office and. he DeSoto


County Sheriff's Office con-
tacted the FDLE Sebring field
office for assistance.
Through interviews and
reco ered evidence, special
agents believed Cre\-s killed
Barrington on Oct. 10, 2002,
and dumped her body some-
where in Hardee,. or Polk
County. For more than 18,
months, investigators dilige nil
gathered information and evi-;
dence and obtained testimon\
de\elopinQ the probable cause
necessary to obtain an indict-.:
ment of murder for Crews by'
the 10th Judicial Circuit State
AttorneY Office in Hardee
County,.

Thor Log: Trail closed to fire, reopens in time to finish trail


Each week, the News-Sun
prints a log by Thor Knutson, in
Washington on the final stretch
of a Pacific Crest Trail hike
from Mexico to Canada. Visit
ThorHike.comfor maps, photos
or video.
Wednesday, Sept. 20
Woke up this morning feel-
ing somewhat better. I decided I
had come this far and I really
should finish.
There are several alternate
trails through this area. I took
the third alternate: Catch the
ferry to Stehekin and catch the
bus from there to the original
trail.
Stehekin can not be reached
by road only by ferry or sea-
plane.
It has. an excellent bakery and
the bus stopped long enough for
me to get two sticky buns and a
sandwich for lunch.
Reached the trail about 1,
p.m. Started raining about half
an hour later. Found a large tree
at lunch time that kept me par-
tially dry, and ate my portabella
mushroom pesto croissant.
Quite tasty for a through hiker. -
Saw no other hikers today.
Camped by a small stream. It
stopped raining just long
enough for me to make camp
and cook dinner.
Thursday, Sept. 21
Heard strange noises most of
the night. Woke to find three
mouse holes in my tent. I know
he was inside my tent because
of his leavings.
Heavy fog with rain all day.
Not able to see anything. Kept
going uphill. I took the pack
animal part of the Pacific Crest,
Trail sometime 'in the morning
and didn't notice' until much-
later. I decided that was OK
since I was- a pack animal
myself.
It rejoined the regular Pacific
Crest Trail later. When I.
reached Rainey Pass, there was
a sign posted saying the trail
was closed due to fire. A trail
angel by the name of Papa Bear
(a former through-hiker) was
camped near the trail. He said
the trail %as open to Windy
Pass. 4.0 ruiles.-aay and the
eight miles ir.,Canada %as
open. That left 1,4 miles still,

closed.
It had been raining for six
days. I decided to go into town
and get supplies and see if I
could make it through.
Friday, Sept. 22
Arrived back at the trail
about 8:30 a:m. to find several
other hikers. We all decided to
push on and hope the rain had
put out the fire.
Left in heavy fog with about
two inches of snow that fell
last night. It was a hard day -
up and down all day. Shoulder


doing OK
stiff.


some pain and Saturday, Sept. 23


Hiked 25 miles today. When
I reached camp there were four
other hikers, about 30 total.
They had a nice fire going. I
was late getting in and the fire.
only lasted long enough for me
'to put up my tent and warm a.
little.
Cooked dinner inside of my
tent while wearing my sleeping
bag. Had a pouch of chicken
with Stovetop dressing. Only
needed hot water.


Woke up to cold, foggy and
wet weather. Hiked to Wendy
Pass where the trail was sup-
posed to be closed. A forestry
truck pulled up, a ranger got out
and started running toward the
trail intersection where two
other hikers were. I thought she'
was going to prevent us from
entering the closed area.
Instead, she ran ahead and
ripped off the closed sign;
replacing it with another show-
ing the trail was open.

Hill-Gustat and Avon Park.
middle schools both registered
to take part in the reading.
At Hill-Gustat, however, the
television hook-up switched
from Sesame Street to search-
ing for signal and back again,
over and over all morning. The
school's principal Dave
Robinson paced the corridors.
Without the unifying presence
of the television feed he wor-
ried, the school might fail in
maintaining compliance. The
rules were very specific, and
very strict. .
Then, just in the nick of tilpe.
service clicked irf. and therM
was the Florida Coinmnissioneri
of Education John Winn intro-
ducing the authors of the book


the middle school students were
about to read from, and the gov-
ernmor, who would lead them in,
the reading.
The excerpt was eight para-
graphs long. It took about two
minutes to read, everyone read-
ing together and it came, from
the beginning of Chapter 11 in
"Peter and the Starcatchers," by
Dave Barry and.., Ridley,
Pearson. The book is about,
among other things. ho,\ Peter.
Pan aind Captain Hook first met.
- back %when Captain Hook,
didn't have a hook and was
called something else.
The day, the governor
reminded e%'ervone, ;was as:
much about having fun reading,
as it was about having fun
breaking a record. "Reading
makes the world go round." he
said.
\Thi eent had the support of
the community..
Guest readers at Avon Park

Sheriff Susan Benton,. State
Representative,, Denise.
Grimsley and Count\
Commissioner Barbara Stewart..
Supervisor of Elections Joe
Campbell, School
Superintendent Wally Cox.
Curriculum Coordinator Anne
Lindsay, and Adrianne Morris.
a regional field director for the
Florida Department of
Education, were witnesses at
Hill-Gustat.
The rules required each
school to have a nolar\ public. a
xideographer and a photogra-
pher. There had to be a witness
for every 20 students; and then
independent witnesses, not con-
nected to the school board in
any way, to witness the witness-
es.
E\ery student had to sigr-in
before reading, anL those sign-
in sheets also ha\e to be corrob-
orated.
Sophia Bonjokian, resource
teacher at Hill-Gustat, agreed


that the paperwork surrounding
the reading nxas almost as com-
'plicated and difficult as han-
dling Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Tests. ,
Each school must return its
certification packet. an en\e-,
lope containing all needed doc-
umentation. by Friday. Oct. 13.
.There will bei a waiting period
after that, while the documenta-
tion is reviewed 'again and
authenticated.
It means everyone % ill have
to be a little patient for the offi-
cial results.
But unofficially,' the results
look good.
Donna Harrison, who teaches
science at Hill-Gustat, and has
been teaching for 33 years, said,.
"I was here when we elected the
state animal (the panther)," she
said, "I still., have ballots for
that, but I don't remember an\ -
thing like this."
Each school will get'a framed
certificate for its contribution.

WAUCHULA The
Hardee County Players Inc.
Youth Theater will be present-
ing-'A Grimm Night for Hans
Christian Andersen,' a comedy
in one act, at the Historic
Wauchula City Hall
Auditorium, 225 E. Main St.,
Wauchula. Performances are at
7:30 p.m. today and Saturday
and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday. The
play, set in Denmark in 1835,
begins with a conflict between
three .very popular fairy tale
authors, Hans Christian
Andersen and The Brothers
Grimm. It seems the brothers
are bothered by Andersen's
apparent plagiarism' of their
themes. A contest ensues, as
each author presents to the
audience examples of their
famous fairy-tale stories, to
determine which author should
stand down. However, during
the process, characters become
disgruntled with their story-
lines, and rise up against the
authors. 'Grim,' featuring a cast.
of 21 children ages 8-18. years
old, both veterans and newcom-
ers, is directed by Nancy
Kitchens and Chnsiiriu MNliri.
Doors open one hour before
show time and tickets are $5 at
the door. The venue seats 400
and no sell-out<' are expected.


Parking is across Main Street in
the post office lot or behind the
auditorium. Handicap ramp
access and parking is, at the
west entrance. The Hardee
County Players are a non-profit


community theater group dedi-
cated to performing and pre-
serving community theater. For
more details,, call (863) 767--

School may. be the number
one most hated thing, among
teens universally.
Students deal with drama for
almost a year. The many tests
such as Florida
Comprehensive Achievement
Test, Scholastic Achievement
Test, American College Test,
Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude
Test and exams can be
downright stressful. The teach-
ers who constantly dish out
homework and fuss can be sim-
ply aggravating.
Furthermore, looking at the
same atmosphere and following
the same chronic routine can be
boring and tiresome.
These are the top reasons that
some drop out of school and
complain throughout their
entire school years. However, it

arena of


eternal


merit

By CHRIS LEVERIDGE'
Sebring High School
"Firemen's Memorial Field is
.a historic monument of the
unchallenged athleticism of
past and present athletes. This
arena is a priceless sanctuary
that holds treasured memories
Sof'past time athletes and unfor-
gettable sporting events. This
sanctuary holds the sweat, tears
and enduring spirits of teams
and individuals who wouldn't
give up. These teams and indi-
viduals made history and
inspired old and young to keep
faith despite the circumstances.
Firemen's Field is notably
one of the most popular of the
Sebring High School arenas.
The land upon which Firemen's
Field is currently situated was
purchased in 1930, at the
impulse of A.C. Altvater and
.others, for the sole purpose of
building ani.athletic complex. At
the time there was a baseball
field down on Dinner Lake and
another one at the intersection'
of Orange Street and Lemon
Avenue, but neither was very
sufficient.
A committee was formed not
long after to build tihe athletic
complex. The committee con-
sisted' of E.L. Greene, chair-
'man; Altvater, P.G. Gearing,
Ray Morgan and Doyle
Schumacher as the project man-
ager. Spehtcer Jones also was
very active, in building and
maintaining the field through
the years.
Mules and equipment were,
donated by Withers and
Harshman, Inc. and the city of
Sebring cleared the orange
grove.
The field was officially dedi-
cated in 1931. The first team to
use the field was the Sebring
Sweets. Marjorie Rambeau, a
major silent film star, sponsored
the team. The grandstand was
built as a WPA project in 1936,
and that spring the Newark
Bears of the AAA International
League trained at the field, con-

Coach Gary Rapp, who was

Athletic Coaches A:-ocILt.01'n
several years ago, is a living
legend. When asked who he
thought were some of the best
players from Highlands County'
to ever play on the field, he
mindfully took a deep breath
and answered, "In the last 46.
years, I've had the wonderful
opportunity to see and coach

SgdL Overcrowded lunches now tolerable


School: Why some hate it


that same boring, stressful,
aggravating and tiresome
school that the impetuous desire
to relive those days returns.
Many have been victims of
extreme short-term nostalgia.
They yearn to visit the days of
their childhood.
'A popular solution for some
is to look up old friends utiliz-
ing the Internet. There are
countless Web sites and search
engines, that profit' immensely
from these people.
They seek the innocent
youthfulness and liveliness of it
.all. They miss the parties, the
responsibilities of school, their
friends, and yes, even the teach-
ers. All of these events, feelings
and people played a big part in,
what they are today. Yet many-
of these people complained
about school.
Parents suffer from nostalgia
the most and many teachers


By STEPHANIE ELDREDGE
SebHing High School
Most students at Sebring
High School would agree when
I say that lunch is the favorite
part of the day. Lately though
the lunches have been over-
crowded and aren't as enjoy-
able as they once were.
The lines have been creeping
,' out of the doors, students aren't
able to finish their lunch, and
many stand around and just
socialize. The kids who don't

enter their profession because
of extreme short-term nostalgia.
I personally think the majori-
ty of the people who suffer
from extreme short-term nostal-
gia were not submissive or
unintentionally open to the pos-
itive things about school.
, School comes with many
responsibilities. Homework is a
necessity and the amount of
which it is issued is. out of your
power. Tests and exams are
essential and must be given for
administrators to determine if
their job is being done.
Drama is going to be your
life-long mental shadow. It fol-
lows you everywhere such as
your job, home, school and-
wherever you decide to go.
As far as being bored you
have to make whatever you
embark on fun, It's not hard.
Don't feel iiniled out.
E\keione goes I tirout.h this


phase at some point in their life,
whether it happens whild scan-
ning through a yearbook and
recollecting the events and
good times of the past. It could
be while dropping' your own
child- off at school or attending
a school, function with .them.
Pictures, videos and letters are
mentally valuable to any per-
son. So if you have .a significant
case of short-term extreme nos-
talgia, do not get rid of any of
these precious items.
No matter the circumstances
childhood should and does con-
tain beautiful memories. Maybe

Internet or attending a high

stand, sit at tables where juniors
and seniors have been sitting
since they got here and that ulti-
mately causes it to turn into a
tense situation.
There is a great number of
new students this year joining
us from the middle schools and
that is thought to be a main fac-
tor in this issue.
Is there a way we can fix this
problem or are we going to be
stuck in this overpopulated situ-
ation? A third lunch could be a
solution.
,The administrators of the
school had already taken a third
lunch into consideration.
When asked what happened
to the idea, Principal To'ni
Stivender said, "If and when we
go to three lunches, the lunches
would be shortened -to 30 min-
utes. This may result, for safety
reasons, in our seniors not
being able to leave for lunch. 1
am trying to avoid this until we
have no choice."
. Safety precautions have been
taken to control this dilemma.

secutively through 1940. The
Yankees'. and other Major
League Baseball 'teams also
made several appearances dur-
ipg the Spring.
Many great athletes have
.played their hearts out on this
very field awing the crowd
with their speed, skills,. nimble-
ness and agility. The honorable
Johnny Freeland witnessed a
great deal of the history of the
field and players as a coach.
.Some of the incredible ath-
letes to grace Firemen's, Field
include Avon Park native
Thomas "Flash" Gordon, who
went on to play for the Kansas
City Royals, Boston Red Sox,
.New York Yankees and is cur-
rently playing for the
Philadelphia Phillies. Sebring
legend Ronnie Lippett was so
dominate on the football field
that he, was handpicked to play
for the notorious New England
Patriots. Lake Placid's own
Larry Seigheld played baseball
and more than earned a position
in Lake Placid High's presti-
gious Hall of Fame. Avon Park
baseball sensation, Harold
"Hal" McRae, also left a dis-
tinct impression on the many
spectators' who saw him play.
He was unbelievably talented.
Gabe White always kept specta-
tors on their toes. This 1990
Sebring High graduate made a
name for himself in the big
leagues (Cincinnati Reds) and
inspiring young athletes to sur-
pass his impressive resume.
Glenn Odham, Kenny James,
Lavaar Scott, .Jesse Sanders,
Dexter Seigler, Jerry Heston,
'Hoppy Rewis, and Fred
Montsdeoca are just a few of
the other fantastic athletes who
made a name for themselves at
Firemen's Field.


According to Stivender, "We
have four deans, three APs
(assistant principals), and two
teachers to monitor the safety of
our students at lunch everyday.
Additionally, .we have our
resource officer and me on most
days."
As a junior, and knowing that
the third lunch would --take
effect next year, I feel like I
could deal with a little over-
crowding and still be able to
have my off campus lunch.
Many students have different
views on how the repercussions
of a third lunch would affect
them. But without knowing the
repercussions the students have
become accustomed as the year
progresses.
The outlook of the student
body being able to come togeth-
er and deal with the problem
looks good. So, lunch staff,
school staff, and fellow, stu-
dents, let's get a grasp pn this
problem and deal with it togeth-
er.

That's because I received a"

It's very hard losing anyone,
especially someone you knew
personally. I can't even imagine
how his parents feel about this
situation, but I hope they are
standing strong right now and,
that they never forget the good
times they had with him.
James was a very funny per-

son and also very calm. A lot of'
people might wonder why they
called him Suga Pop. I asked
him that question once and his
answer was "Because the ladies
think I'm sweet." Those of us
who knew and loved James,
-know that the statement he
made was true,.he was a'sweet
person.
"All jokes aside, Suga Pop

"He was always the' one to

Infuriated over lack of respect
Infuriated over lack of re spect


GTON Growing up I was taught raf
respect.. --
I learned to respect my par- ,.
ents, grandparents, aunts and .
uncles at a very young age. "'
When I entered school, I quick-
ly added teachers to that list. Of
course, it helped that I really
h liked my teachers. ,
As I grew older I learned to
also respect animals of all
kinds. I had the usual dogs, cats
and rabbits as pets and then I
got my horse. She was .my best
friend:
I also learned to respect prop- rial.

tive's, a friend of the family, the it. A

I had a tremendous respect anot
for those things that once that
belonged to the living, and tall.
those things that marked the / I
death of loved ones. It didn't of 1
matter whose loved one it was, grou
I showed respect for them. and
Now I'll be the first to admit then
that my children don't show the his f
.level of respect that I wish they I
did, but that's a work in begi
progress ... something that we W

without a good talking' to.
I went behind the old bank
and 'found that the boys had
tried to elude me. They must
have thought they were dealing
with a stupid woman who had
never tried to hide from anyone
before. I found them, of course,
nearly a block away.
-I stopped the car, got out and
asked them why they used such
filthy language and why they,
were crawling around on a
memorial dedicated to the
memory of veterans? There was
no answer, just more foul lan-
guage. One, boy, dressed in a
blue jersey, did talk, but never
offered an apology for the lan-
guage or their actions.'
I told the boys I would talk to
the police and that's exactly-
what.I did. In fact, I had wanted
to call-the police when. I first
saw the boys on the monument
but what I was.witnessing made
me so.mad I couldn't remember
the phone number.
Felicia and Sonya, the dis-
patchers on duty at the police
station, took the' information
and said the) 'd ask an officer to
give extra patrol. Like Felicia
said, the boys need, to be
stopped before the\ aet hurtor
disfieure the monument. At that
point. I wasn'tt e\en caring
about the bo\s' safety'. I just
want them to stay off the monu-
ment. ,
Why do the monuments mat-


ter so much to me? Well, I am
the granddaughter, daughter
and sister of veterans. One
grandfather, my dad and brother
all served in the U.S. Army;
another grandfather served in
the Navy. That's not to mention,
the uncles and cousins who.,
have served in the other branch-
es of the military.
I've mentioned before the
bracelet that has been on my
right arm for the past 22 years.
It has engraved on it the name
of a man who has been listed as
a pnsoner of war since Jan. 8,
1968 ... Vietnam War.
Do the veterans mean some-
thing to me? You bet. For more
reasons that one.
Does it-make me mad to see
someone disrespect a veteran,
even if it's through a memorial
monument? You bet. My grand-
father's name is on one of those
monuments on The Mall.
Does it make me angry to
hear young people talk with
such foul language? You bet. It
makes, me angry. at them and
their parents. It makes me won-
der what has happened to the
innocence of our youth.
Do I feel good about notify-
ing the police' You bet and I'll
feel even better if they can
catch the little brats and tell
them to- straighten up ... in a

FFA thanks

community

Editor:
Over the last few weeks, the
Lake Placid Middle School,
Agriculture Department and
FFA chapter have received
numerous donations from the
.Florida Nursery Growers &
Landscape Association, its.
local business members, and
individual members. Agricul-
ture teacher Cheryl Humphrey
and LPMS ag students want to,
say a big "Thank You!" to all of
their supporters, with genuine
and heartfelt appreciation.
In May, Jim Somers, of
Somers Irrigation, donated a
mist irrigation system for the'
school land lab. Then earlier
this month, he donated PVC
pipe and fittings to run the
water lines from the green-
house well to the garden area.
Thank You to Mr. Somers for
his generous and constant sup-
port of LPMS ag.
Ted Brown of Evergreen
Nurseries donated several large
woody shrubs to the school for
students to use for cuttings. He
also brought potting soil com-
ponents for starting seeds and
cuttings and returned to the
school to show the' students
how to make the cuttings and
do the propagation.
FNGLA Highlands Heart-
land Chapter donated a trailer
full of plants remaining after
the Caladium Festival Plant
sale to LPMS for use by the
students and for plant sales
later in the fall. Thank you to
Matt Gose and Mike Waldron,
present and past presidents,
along with all the FNGLA
members for their support.'
Earlier in the summer, FNGLA
also paid an $80 scholarship for
an LPMS FFA officer to attend'
FFA State Convention.
LPMS ag also just received a
truck load of potting soil from
TuCo Peat. Thank you to Scott
Kirouac and new owners, Rich
and Lisa Hudec. This load will
supply the greenhouse needs
for repotting for the entire

Whoa! What happened to
our taxes in Highlands County?
What happened to the people
we voted in to represent us? It
is like the sheriff in the story of
Robin Hood, all of a sudden we
are being taxed to death.
It is taxation without repre-
sentation. Who on the county
level or the state level is speak-'
ing out to protect the property
owner? I haven't heard one.

county that can't stand up to the
state and who are these people
in the state that would make
laws that would cause people to
lose their property arid land by
over taxing them? Have you
heard even one representative
stand up and say we need to
protect the people's right 'to
own property?
All.I hear is the sheriff buy-
ing new office equipment. The
county in about every depart-
,ment is looking for ways to
spend our hard earned money
on lands and buildings. Where
is the accountability? Where
are the people that, are sup-
posed to be managing our
money? The more they get, the
more they want.
Sam Walton built one of the
largest retail empires in the
,world. His desk, for years.was
a set of saw horses and a sheet
of plywood. .If, you ,go to
Bentonville, Ark., today, you
will find his managers' offices
very small, with no frills; every
inch of the space is used. No
waste is allowed.


J.C. Penney, when he trained
his employees, would get upset
if an employee wrapped a.
package with more than a sin-
gle string. .
These excellent business
men and managers know how
to manage, to make a profit and
make ends meet.
I 'am sick of government
waste and us, the taxpayers,
footing the bill. Allowing this
all-powerful people to continue
by robbing us. This has to stop
now!
Let us use some common
sense. When you buy property,
you pay taxes on the sale. Once
you acquire the property at a
higher price the tax assessment
goes up on that property. The
county and state get more
money. Example: 'A lot for
years has been taxed at $40 a
year. It sells at' a higher price.
The state now gets sales tax,
plus the assessment on the
property goes up to let's say
$60 a year. That is a huge
increase in taxes.
Tax on 'taxes. Sales tax to


the state plus higher rates of
yearly taxes.,
But that is not enough. Now
someone gets .excited and buys
lots up around your lot, paying
high pnces; a buying .frenzy
raised prices around your lot.
Now the state gets an enormous
gales tax, the county gets a
huge increase in to new high
over-priced lots around your
lot. Then lot sales stop.
It is like the fake gas prices
that got so high from greed.
Now the county and state get
greedy. They want to tax you
on something you have not sold
at a high price.
Why are our news reporters
not asking our representatives
how they stand on these taxes
and publish how. the politicians
stand? So ,we the people, can
decide if we want them in
power over us. Can't these
politicians see that the people
are getting frustrated? Many of
us feel we are not being heard.
This week we saw a dictator -

(Hugo Chevez, Venezuela pres-
ident) stand up before the
world and call our president the
devil. This dictator is worse
than the devil to his own peo-
ple. He would think nothing of
killing his own people for
speaking out.
Many dictators were quick to
stand behind this evil man. Yet
we the people of the United
States let him get by with it. We
do not kill our own presidents
or politicians. We pray for them
and if they do not listen to us,
we vote them out.
Many of us didn't like
President Bill Clinton outright
lying to us i ith his famous
lie, "I swear I never touched
her!" We have a way to deal
with our leaders. We can vote
them out. .Our leaders make
mistakes, but that.doesn't make
them devils. I read in the Book
of Books, accuser of the

Let us stand behind our lead-

Some time ago, I was walk-
ing out of an Olive Garden
restaurant. The little lady that
was 'making the pasta was a
refugee that had fled- Vietnam.
She and her husband had a
business there and lost it all.
This little lady. asked me,
"What do you need?" I replied,
"I need a million dollars." I can
still see her look me in the eye.
She said, "Do you need a mil-
lion dollars or do ou just %ani
a million dollars?" The ques-
tion I ask is, does this. count)

taxpayer are being crippled

feel they can force us to pay for


their wants?
I understand costs have gone
up, but property taxes have
already gone up as property
sells. New homes have put
huge amounts into the state and
county gold "money pots."
Instead of $40, that lot has a
new house that pays $800 to
$1,000 higher taxes. How
much is enough? That empty
lot went to $60 last year and
now is proposed at more than
$200 a year.
As I see it, the money is
already in the "money pot.' If
there is. a problem with the
money managers, perhaps we
need someone that can manage
our tax dollars. Any responsible
business would hire new man-
agers if their managers .were
not good managers. It appears
that we have a huge manage-
ment problem.

We need to take

care of our own
-Editor:
A recent editorial,. "We're
Not Getting Right Message Out
to the World," is, in my opin-
ion, right onthe money. Uncle
Sam is not the most popular kid -
on the block and never will be
if we continue along the path of
stay the course.
We retaliated as 'we should


have after Sept. 11, however,
our best chance at deposing
Osama (bin Laden) was lost
when we backed off the Tora
Bora offensive and left our
Afghan' allies to complete the
job. Iraq moved up to the front
burner.
The Bush people were sure
we would be welcomed as lib-
erators. Instead we became
occupied and look where we
are now.
Enough of the 20/20 hind-
sight. We will never forget
Sept. 11, 2001. We started in.
the "right direction with our
action in Afghanistan. We sim-
ply did not deploy enough mil-
itary assets to complete the job,
If we had sent the number of
troops, tanks, etc., that we com-
mitted to the Iraq adventure, I
believe. -we would have Osanma
on trial now instead of Saddam.
Let's be honest with our-
selves. Civil War exists in Iraq
right now. Our troops are fair
game for both factions: Iraq
will probably become a theoc-
racy the same as Iran and the
Shiites will prevail. At least the
Iraq people will have deter-
mined their own future.
Will they be better off?
Probably.
We should withdraw our
troops and re-deploy them to
Afghanistan to complete that
operation before it gets any
worse. .
At the same time, we need to
reconsider our direction on the
world scene. The nations of the
world. should be allowed to
choose their own type of gov-
ernment. This idea that the last
several U.S. administratibas
have had of spreading democ-
racy isn't working.. Oir efforts.
at solving the problems we see
should start at home. The tril-
lions of dollars we are allocat-
ing to the Iraq fiasco could
fund and help solve some, if


not most, of the domestic issues
we face. For starters, adequate
funding for border security and
a sensible solution to illegal
immigration.
Next, stop penalizing career
military people who incurred
compensable disability while
on active duty. Those who were
not combat disabled were still-
on active duty serving our
country.
We need to allocate reason-
able funding as an incentive for
development of an alternative
fuel. program. Hybrid vehicles
are our future crude oil is
not.
Implementation of a national
health care program for all
American citizens should be
developed. At the same time we
need to find a solid solution to
our Social Security ,and
Medicare problems before they
implode.
Last, but certainly not the
least, the out-sourcing of
American jobs needs to 'be
,addressed. We as a society tend
to penalize the middle class in
our country by lowering taxes
for the most affluent among us_
,and lavishing company chief
executive officers with outra-
geous retirement packages.
Let's get our priorities in
order. The rest of the world can
solve their own problems. We
need to take care of our own
people.

Continued from 14A
our son-in-law, Andy Tuck,
was running for a seat on the
school board.
From the beginning Andy
received a lot, of encourage-
ment and support and we were
all very grateful. Andy said he


wanted to "do it right" from the
beginning and he kept that
promise. It was neat to see how
his little family was involved
from building signs to stuffing
envelopes. Running for' an
elected office takes a commit-'
ment from not only the individ-
ual, but from everyone who
cares about them.
Fortunately, Andy won his,
bid for election, but I would've
been proud of him even. if he
hadn't because. he cared
enough to "get involved" and
had the desire to make a differ-
ence.
Not all "good candidates"
. get elected, but all candidates
make a difference because
they're willing to "put them-
selves out there" and desire to
use their influence to effect
positive change.
One of those candidates we
met on election, day was Jack
Richie. He' didn't win his elec-
tion, but he's making a differ-
ence and will continue to
"bloom where he .is planted" to
improve the quality of life in
Highlands County.
We know now how much 6bf
a commitment it is to seek a
voter elected position and we


also know that with all the hard
work that each candidate puts
in, the least we can do to thank
them is to make an effort to cast
our vote.

Soaring with

the eagles
While driving to Tampa
on Avon Park Cut-off some
time ago, a friend and I saw
a bald eagle sitting on a
fence post in the middle of a
pasture. We spent quite
some time watching the
magnificent creature ignore
us.
First nations lore holds
the eagle as a sacred, living
symbol of spiritual energy, ,
freedom, power and tran-
scendence high-soaring
eagles. When I was a very
small child, I had a recur-
ring dream of a totem pole
topped by an eagle
(w :- ,.I lt.,_, di ,j.,,) L ot i.i

only ceramics claim I made
a statue of a Nati. e
American dressed in full
eagle regalia. That probably
represents m', linerring fas-
cination with this .a Lesome
bird of prey.
For the finale of the
Spring Fling 2006, e used
ai ideo of an eagle soaring

singing of the nattonjl

He also answered his own question: "Tough!"
He offered a brief list of don't and do's:
Don't call a referral service.
Don't look in the Yellow Pages.
Do ask insiders, such as nurses, pharmacists and
other doctors..
"Make sure your physician is board certified, not just
board eligible, in internal or family medicine," he said.

Fear nothing and Satan can't attack


How many of you have dealt
with an abusive spouse who
was threatening to kill their
family, or a drunk threatening
the public and you offered
yourself as a shield without
thinking? Or how many ,times
have you run toward a violent
situation that everyone else was
'running away from? How many
- officer, and firefighters ran into
the Twin Towers without even
thinking of their own safety?
They were fearless. God rest'
their souls.
Officers are sworn to protect
the public by whatever means
necessary and sometimes even
sacrifice their own lives. It
takes a special breed of person
to take on that responsibility. I
have worked with several dif-
ferent officers over the years
with just as many different per-
sonalities and different ways of
dealing with situations. I find it
curious how we as officers can
stand up to anything we face in
the street, but tremble when we
get called into our supervisor's
office or the sheriff walks in.
How does fear affect your life?
In what areas of your life does
fear affect you?
How many of you think you
are fearless until it comes to
your children's safety or the
possibility of your marriage
ending does it scare you to
death?. Of what, or whom are
you afraid? You can face a vio-
lent situation without fear, but
this you can't deal with without
.trembling. How about the fear
you feel when asked in front of
your peers if you are a Christian
does that scare you? Many
years ago, even though I knew I
was a Christian, I trembled and
broke out in a sweat when con-
fronted with thatvery question.
I was afraid. Why? Well I was


afraid of being
ridiculed in front of
ray peers, being
called a "Bible
thumper" or a "Jesus
freak." Why was I
afraid? Why should I.
be afraid? Well we,
shouldn't be afraid
- we don't, have..
,,nytling to fear. In,
Isaiah 41:10-11, 13,
it says "So do not
fear, for I am with
you; do not be dis-
mayed, for I am your

God. I will strength-
en you and help you; I will
uphold you with my righteous
right hand. All who rage against
you will surely be ashamed and
disgraced; those who oppose
you will be nothing and perish"
and 13 says, "For I am the Lord,
your God, who takes hold of
your right hand and says to you,
Do Not Fear."
You see fear is a tool of theI
devil, it is evil. Fear is what
Satan uses to deceive you, to
discourage you, to make, you
feel isolated and alone, to make
you feel that you are not good
enough or not worthy. Through
this he is able to control your
life because you allowed it.
The only fear you should have
is the fear when you disobey
God. For when you do he is not
with you and Satan can attack
- you are vulnerable just
like when that armed robbery
breaks out in the convenience
store you are in and your body
armor is in the trunk of you car.
In Psalm 56:10-13 it tells us
why we shouldn't be afraid, "0
God, I praise your word. Yes,
Lord, I praise your word. I trust
in God, so why should I be
afraid? What can mere mortals
do to me? I will fulfill my vows


to you, 0 God, and
offer a sacrifice of
thanks for your help.
For you have rescued
me from death; you
have kept my feet
from slipping. So
now I can walk in
your presence, .
God, in your life-giv-
ing light.". TheLord
knows the situations&
you face and He
promises to give you
both the wisdom and
the strength to get


through your trials.
God also promises you his
peace in times of adversity."
Fear keeps you from apply-
ing for a new job, putting in for
a transfer to another division or
trying for that promotion that
could advance your career -
all because you fear you are not
good enough or that you may
fail. Fear comes in so many
forms -but if you could expe-
rience the true love of God you
'would hot fear anything -
ever. You would know that God
is with you, and therefore you
could handle any situation that-
came your way. In 1 John 4:18
states it clearly, 'There is no
fear in love. But perfect love
drives out fear, because fear has
to do with punishment. The one
who fears is not made prefect in
love."
If you are truly a child of
God you should fear nothing
that man brings against you.
You would stand firm knowing
that God will bring you through
it. Even. Satan has no hold on
you unless you invite him into
your life by being disobedient.
An even them if you repent and
rebuke Satan in the name of
Jesus Christ he will flee from
you because he fears the name


S,
it




i.
w


of Lord.
You see we were crucified
with Christ on the cross, he con-
quered death for us. Must of our
fear is the fear of death but if
Jesus conquered death why do
we fear it? And since we were
crucified with Christ (because
he lives in us) we have the
authority 'to claim the blessings
on earth'as 'it is in Heaven.
Therefore if you can be fear-,
less against drug dealers, knife
wielding, gun toting suspects,
burning buildings and dark
alleys then you can be fearless
when you own up to being ,a
Christian cop. You have some
power afforded to you with a
gun and a badge, but you have
divine authority with God on
your side, "for who can be
against you if God is for you."
To achieve this you must be
obedient and,; stand strong
against adversity, ridicule and
persecution by your peers and
others. "Those who oppose you
will be nothing and. perish",
based on Isaiah .41:11.
Fearlessness and God's power
comes from the word of God,
which can only be received by
opening your Bible and reading
it daily. And of course this mes-
sage is not only restricted to
officers it relates to all of our
lives. Don't live in fear any-
more, ask God into your life,
and be fearless in every aspect
of your life.
God bless you and I pray he
gives .you the wisdom and the
strength you need.

Sanctification is the process by
which God makes us partakers
of His holiness; that it is a pro-
gressive work that is' begun
when one is saved, and is con-
tinued in our hearts by the work
of the Holy Spirit, in connection
with Bible reading, prayer, self-
examination, and self- denial
and that such sanctification is
complete at the second coming
of Christ for His own."
If anyone did not understand
the 'previous paragraph, then

what everyone believes the

tion. The Scriptures Article X is

Sala tells women


about Little Lambs

LAKE PLACID Eileen Sala spoke at the general meet-
ing of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church Women's
Ministries Thursday, Sept. 21.
Sala, who, with her husband John, founded Little Lambs
Prison Ministry in Sebring some years ago.
She spoke' of the expansion of the ministry into family-ori-
ented needs. As people leave prison, they have a difficult
adjustment to make. Families play a huge part in this adjust-
ment. Realizing this, the Salas have added family counseling
to their curriculum of Bible study. They mail Bible study les-
sons to prisons all over the United States. Lessons are sent in
English or Spanish to suit the requirements of the prisoner
requesting them. Volunteers are always needed to help mail
the lessons and grade them when they are returned. Little
Lambs Ministry is at 710 S. Eucalyptus, Sebring.
President Sandy White presided over the meeting. The
name of the group was recently changed from Women of the
'Church to Lake Placid Associate Reformed Presbyterian
Women's Ministries. This was done to conform to a similar
change from the Synodical (national) and Presbyterial (state)
levels.
photo Reports were received from the various departments of the
work. One of the ongoing projects is the preparation of lunch
for the crew building a Habitat House in the. area, which the,
group does once a month or as needed.

Parents who haven't a clue, sure were smart


Metamorphosis: A cocoon
changing into a beautiful butter-
fly.
Have you ever noticed what a
great metamorphosis occurs in
our lives as we get older in
regard to our parents? Consider
the statements below:
The son at age 4 says, "My
daddy can do anything." At age
7 he says, "My dad knows a lot,
a whole lot." At 12 he says,
"Dad doesn't know quite every-
thing." At 15 he says, "Oh well,
naturally he doesn't under-
stand." At 21 he says, "My
father? Hopelessly old fashion
and totally ouf of date." At 25
he says, "He does have a good
idea once in awhile." At 35 he


says, "I must find out
what daddy thinks
about this." And at
50 he says, "I wish I-
could talk this over
with dad once more."
' The daughter says
at age 4, "My mother
is the smartest person
in the whole world."
At 7 she says, "My
mother is the very
best friend I have."
At 12 she says, "My
mother is getting
more bossy all the
time." At 15 she
says, "Mother is so


VERLON'S

SPIRITUAL
VITAMIN

Verlon Carrell
m


out of tune with my problems."
At 21 shesays, "My dress? No,
mother doesn't approve, but I


have my rights." At
25 she says, "I can
date whom I want to.
Mother no longer
bosses me around."
At 35 she says, "My
daughter won't listen
to a word I say." And
at 50 she says,
"Mother I miss you
and Wish I could only
once more receive
sound advice from
you."
Parents have a,
grave and awesome
responsibility to rear
their children. Babies


don't come with an instruction
book, I wish they did. Parents
mustdo what they think is best


at the time. We don't always
know what to do or how to han-
dle a specific problem, but as
we get older and look back and
if we could have the opportuni-
ty of doing things over, we
would do them differently, but
we don't have that luxury.
My dad, wise as a serpent
and as harmless as a dove, used
to tell me,' "Son you will never
earn your raising until you raise
your own children."
Proper grammar? No.
Wise advise? Most definitely.

Verlon Carrell is the minister
at Lake Placid Church of
Christ. He can be reached at
465-4636.

COOKS
Continued from 1C
recently gathered, at the
Episcopal retreat camp, Camp
Wingmann.
By the side of Lake Damon,
. under the shade of oak trees,
David Colman, Debbie Barber,
Sandy Rybacki and Norm
Church were preparing a vari-
ety of dishes.
Church was baking a pineap-
ple upside-down cake. It took
about 40 minutes to cook:
Barker was trying a new recipe
involving spareribs and Dr.
Pepper soda.


In addition to cookint2.
Rybacki demonstrated how
water is brought to a boil using
lightweight dishpans, balariced
on trivets that sit on top of the
Dutch ovens. Then, still under
the trees, the dishes are washed
on the spot.
And members believe in effi-
cient -shortcuts, For example,
they line their pots with tin foil
to cut back on cleaning.
Every member said they
wouldn't t be able. to cook with-
out their Dutch ovens, or skil-
lets made of the same material
Cast iron cooking pots are
easy care once theN are broken
in, Church said. But they are


fragile and need a little special
care to keep from rusting. Clean
:and dry them thoroughly, then
wipe down with a generous.
.coating of oil .
When a cast iron pot or skil-
let is first bought, Church rec-
onumends a thick layer of oil,
then slowly heating the pot in
the oven.at 350 degrees for at
least an hour to season it.
He v.airns, ho e'.er. that it it s
'a ver\ smok- procedure. and it

Best of all he said is the stick

History Lesson0
10 Years Ago
Sept. 29, 1996: Two
excruciatingly costly penal-
ties made Avon Park's solid
defensive effort meaning-
less as Sarasota Cardinal
Mooney handed the Devils
their fourth loss of the sea-
son 12-6. The most costly
call came after the sixth
time the Devils stopped a
SCougar third-down conver-
sion attempt deep inside
Avon Park territory. With
, the score tied 6-6 and two
minutes left, Avon Park's
Devin Loyd was called for
stepping on another player..
The personal foul gave the,
Cougars a first-and-goal
and three plays later,
Cardinal Mooney running:
back Marc Schmidt pow-
ered in from the 1.

just play the season My e'-.pectations
are very high for these kids.They've
done some things over the last five
weeks that I thought were
phenomenal for being as young as
they are ... (The Bulldogs) have a
pretty good defense. They're pretty
quick coming off the ball I think
(last week; was a breakout game for
(Hill). He's had a great week in
practice throwing the ball. I'm
almost sure (tonight) we'll be ready
to put some points on the board."

what I've been expecting out of
them lor a while. We won't really

Bowling

Forst conquers nerves to


finish off first 300 game


First female bowler to
accomplish feat at Royal
Palms in nearly a decade
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sr..,r:' Edit),
LAKE PLACID\-Wednes.day did-
n't- start 'out as a special night for
, Sebring's Tracy Forst. In fact, it began
a little below tj erase
Bowxling in the mi\ed league at
RoNal Palms Bowling Center. Forst
rolled a 200 in her opening game a
good score, but under her 214 average.
Game two was an; thing but aver-
age. In.fact, it \as absolute perfection
as Forst rolled her first e\er 300 game.
It was .the third 300 in a week at
Royal Palms, but what made Forst's
feat special was her gender. Dave
Ridley of Roatl, Palms said it's been
eight or 10 years since a woman
knocked down 12 strikes in a row.


"'We don't ha.e that man\ women
bowlers who average oxer 200. and
Tracy is one of them," RidleN said.
Forst said she's been bowling for 34
Nears. and has flirted with a 300, but
nexer really made it to the point where
it was a serious possibility.
"7'le had a couple
of-290s and a couple
of 289s, but I've
never really been all
that close," she said'
wednesday was
different, as the
strikes started With
FORSTI the first frame and
just kept coming and
coming.
It wasn't until theeighth frame that
Forst began to realize she was in the
midst of something potentially special.
"I started to get. nervous," said
Forst, 43,, who works at Sebring

FOREST
Continued from ID
Animal Hospital. "In the ninth,
I couldn't believe I got another
(strike) and in the 10th, I just
wanted to throw three good
shots."
Much like a 'pitcher who's
throwing a no-hitter in baseball,
it's bad luck to talk about a
potential 300 game in progress,
so Forst was left alone with her
thoughts. She did get a little
relief when teammate Steve


Bullard cracked a joke in the
10th frame to ease the tension.
"I get nervous when other
people are bowling (300
games), so I was really nervous
when I. started the 10th-frame,"
Forst said.
The first two shots went off
without a hitch, but not the third,
- and final one. Forst didn't
like the look of the pins, so she
got .a re-rack, which gave her
some extra time.
"It let me take another deep
breath," she said. "I didn't want


any bad thoughts in my head."
It worked, as all 10 pins hit
the deck and the celebration
began.
"I just started sobbing," Forst
said. "I've been wanting one of
these for a long time."
Forst said bowlers from all
over the building came to con-
gratulate her.
"I got probably 100 hugs,"
she said. "I think they wanted it
for me as bad as I did."'
With perfection behind her,
Forst still had to bowl another
