P ff ISO


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Construction
is scheduled to being in early
2007/on the Majestic Cove con-
dominiums on the shores of
Lake Jackson in Sebring.
Majestic Cove will consist of
69 waterfront condominiums
fronting the 3,400-acre lake, a
36-slip boat docking facility,
and a 300-foot white sandy
beach. While reservations have
been received for all of the
early release homes, the devel-.
oper is gearing up for the grand
opening soon when additional
units will be released. The
Mediterranean inspired four-
story Majestic Cove residences
are only a short stroll from
Sebring's historic downtown
circle of shops, restaurants,
museums and entertainment.
"Majestic Cove will be a
major draw for our downtown:
we'll have more nightlife and
people will be able to enjoy all
the cultural attractions Sebring
has to offer," said local business
woman Lorrie Smith, who is
very excited about the new% con-
dominium building and its
proximity to Circle Park in
downtown.
Most of the buildings in the
central business area were built
in the 1920s and 1930s and are
listed on the National Register
of Historical Sites.
Potential buyers %%ill ha\e
their choice of si\ different spa-
cious floor plans at Majestic
Co\e; all plans include master
suites, gourmet kitchens and
attractive balconN terraces. The
condominiums \ ill offer three-
or four-bedroom homes with
two or three st-lish baths.
priced from $295.000.
Hallandale Beach resident
Odilia Castillo has reserved a
unit in Majestic Co\e and plans
to make it her permanent home
when she retires from teachmin
in the Atlantic coastal commu-
nity.
"Although I live on the w after
now, I wanted to ,move to
- Majestic Cove and Central
*Florida because it has a more
tranqui. and relaxing feel."
Castillo said.
The veteran educator also
chose to move to Central
Florida because of the degree of
expertise and quality in the con-
struction of Majestic Co\e and
"how different it \\ill be from
an\ thing she has seen."
The 300-foot white sandy
beach at the rear of the de\ elop-
ment provides plent\ of room
for residents to enjoy water
sports such as fishing, power
boating and sailing. No.\ under
construction. the marina %\ill
house up to 36 boat slips, and
eight of those are covered to
accommodate hosting boatlifts.
The docks include fishing and
viewing areas as %ell.
Dean Siegel of Da\ ie. a vice
president of a sales company.
has already reserved a unit he
plans on using as much as pos-
sible when familN and friends
want to get awa\ and relax. He
owns a water bike no\\ and % ill
eventually bu\ a boat to use on
Lake Jackson.
Siegel is among other buyers
who chose Majestic Cove
because it is minutes away from

* See more photos, page 9A
By TREY CHRISTY
N w sun
Students didn't want to leave
Thursday afternoon. The%
wanted to stay and attend the
other seven Ag-Venture sta-
tions.
On the last day of the pro-
gram clouds had settled over
Highlands Count) Fairground
and quite a few stations %were
relocated indoors.
This didn't stop students
from having fun, even to the
point where they didn't want to
leave.
They must have forgot they
were in school and learning.
The three-day program. now%
in its seventh year, teaches
third-grade students all oser the
count\ the importance of local
agriculture.
"Did sou know ifs\ou make
butter witthout salt it tastes just
like milk?" third-grader Juan
Rodriguez responded when
asked if he learned any thing.
Rodriguez enjoyed all of the
stations so much. it was hard
fortiim to pick a favorite.


"They taught us how, to grow
vegetabless and fruit and etery-
thing," Rodriguez said. holding
a pot with vegetable seeds in it.
"Wee planted squash. 'vatermel-
on and tomatoes."
Students spent the morning
visiting seven of 14 stations.
collecting souvenirs of their
learning experiences along the
%% ay.
"'This wouldn't be possible
without community sponsors
and volunteers." Donna
Howerton. member of the Ag-
\enture and Highlands County
School boards and president of
the Highlands County
Caitlevwomen's Association.
said.
Between 150 and 200 volun-
teers are needed per day with
help from school organizations.
"This is my first year and It
has been fun." Michelle
McMahon. a volunteer from
Wachovia bank, said "I like
working with kids."
McMahon was working at
the dairy station. where stu-
dents shook cream in little con-
tainers churning it to butter.


Sebring high and middle
school students from the
national FFA organization kept
third-graders in order without
taking away the fun.
Caleb Hawkey, an eighth-
grader, vas one of the volun-
teers that guided the younger
students through the stations.
"I'm surprised at how\ much
the kids kno,." he said "Some
of their answers amaze me."
Hawkey likes spending time
,with the younger students, and
also enjoyed the program when
he went though it.
"ForestrN was my favorite
station." Hawke. said. "I'm
into trees and animals and
learning about them."
Agnculture commodity
groups and local farmers were
recruited to create the learning
stations, uhch dealt w ith plants
such as grapes, citrus, straw ber-
ries. vegetables and ornamental
horticulture.
Various farm animals and
their importance %were also co% -
ered. from the more traditional
beef and poultry. to the more
exotic bees and alligators.

Talk about the good old days


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK They gath-
ered at the Avon Parlk Depot
Museum on a sunny Sunday
afternoon. Relaxed over light
refreshments, the group of
about a dozen people remi-
nisced about holidays past.
Most in the group had grown
up in the southeast, or
Highlands County in particular.
They spoke of large family
get-togethers complete with
distant cousins.
Margaret Turnbull, who lived
on Winthrop Street, remembers
how her family was too large to
fit inside the house at holiday
time. The children ate outside,
no matter the weather that
Thanksgiving Day. They would
line up at the dining room win-
dow for their servings.
When asked when a child
made the move to inside,
Turnbull laughed, "I guess after
one of the old ones died," she
said.
Rose Bell, who drove up
,from Lake Placid for the ses-
:sion, had similar memories,

only in her family the children
ate in the kitchen, and were
served last, after the men folk
and then the women. "It's a
southern thing," Bell said,
"keeping the kids in the back-
ground."
At Jackie Webster's family
gathering, the rite of passage
for girls involved making
candy. "You had to be old
enough to come to the candy
making party," Webster said,
adding with a laugh that her
younger sister had been very
jealous. "But there were so
many kids, and so many grown-
ups," she said, "you couldn't
help but have a good time."
Everyone had memories of
making paper chains or string-
ing popcorn for the real trees
they decorated. Tangerines
were special treats found in
stockings, as were chocolate.
coins in gold foil wrapping.
Some families overcame dif-
ferences. Nancy Nunnallee told
of "a little Civil War" with two
types of'stuffmg being served at
Thanksgiving. There was a

bread, and a "southern" stuffing
based on corn meal.
"The northern stuffing could
have stuck to the ceiling," she
said, without making it clear if
she was speaking metaphorical-
ly.
Some of the participants had
memories of a specific holiday.
Vivian Hutchinson remem-
bers her dad telling her and her
sister to go out and play in the
snow one Christmas, that her
mother was having a baby. She
swears to this day she saw the
stork land at the window.
Sibyl Padelford remembers
receiving the perfect, shiny
bicycle one Christmas, after
being teased by schoolmates
and having lost hope of getting
one. She described her mother
shining with joy as, still in her
nightgown, she wheeled the
bicycle out of hiding and pre-
sented it to her. Padelford rode
it around town the entire day.
But gifts weren't the focus of
Christmas then, everyone
agreed. There were paper dolls,
coloring books and puzzles for
the children, but the holiday
was built around reunions, food
and games at home, and servic-
es and music at church.
There will be another oppor-
tunity to remember favorite hol-
idays from 2-4 p.m. Sunday at
the museum, which is just off
Main Street, by the railroad
tracks.
The fall and winter holidays
are not the only focus. Any hol-
iday memories are fine.
For example. Avon Park was
described by the people who
grew up in it, as a party town,

Poppy Drive 'Chicago isT

was big success stupendous


Editor:
The Veterans of Foreign
Wars and Ladies Auxiliary of
Post 9853 in A\on Park went to
Wal-Mart for our Poppy Drive,
which was held,in front of the
store. We want to thank Wal-'
Mart for allowing us to have a
very successful drive. The
employees would stop and ask
us how we were doing and did
we need anything; all i e could
think was how lucky we are to
live in a country that is called
America.
We were asked "what is
Poppy Day" and what'ss it
for," well, with me being poppy
chairman and Americanism
chairman, I felt so proud to
answer them. The story is on
May 1922, VFW to the United
States, has had the poppy as its
official flower. In 1924 it
became known as the "Buddy
Poppy" because the disabled
veterans that gathered to make
the flower called each other
"buddy." The term "Buddy
Poppy" was registered with the
United States Patent office and
the VFW still holds the trade-
mark rights., All funds received
from the poppies go into the
relief fund (and only the relief
fund) for the welfare of the vet-
erans and/or their dependents.
Veterans Day, which is Nov.
11, the posts of all militaries
had a ceremony to celebrate all
the men and women serving
-/ our country, past and present.
America is at war in two the-
aters Afghanistan and Iraq.
Iraq has been going well more
than three years. There are 1.3
million GIs w ho can call them-
selves "veterans" of these con-
flicts. It has been stated that we
have a great divide in our coun-
try military and civilian--
and it has never been more pro-
nounced than it is right now.
On Nov. 23 is Thanksgi% ing
Day and we do have a lot to be
thankful for, "America is the
land of the free."
God bless America.

Editor:
Are you ready for some
"happy news" for a change?
Well, I sure was and I got
lucky. My ticket for Highlands
Little Theatre to see "Chicago'
did it for me.
From the moment I walked
in the front door of the theater
and was greeted by the smiling
ushers, my spirits lifted. I have
seen many Broadway shows in
the past, but have never seen
anything to equal this show,
"Chicago."
I only wish I had the vocab-
ulary to give it the credit it
deserves but I will try and do it
justice.
First of'all4 Melanie Boula,.
%who pla ed "Roxie," was awe-
some. What a "sexy "xoman"
who can sing, dance and act
like you %wouldn't believe and
the main men in her life, Jerry
Pollard and Christopher Hayes,
were charming with great
singing voices. I think a lot of
the ladies wanted to bring them
home.
The 10 shapely dancing
ladies were unbelievable, fan-
tastic. The :"extra" men held
their own with "changes."
Jet Hansen, the stage direc-
tor, who has been with
Highlands Little Theatre for a
very long time is leaving for a
well-deserved rest and with this
production, he is leaving with a
"bang." Great job, Jet.
For "Chicago," Denise
Miriani, switched her acting
job to take on the wardrobe
department. What costumes she
made, wow. I know it gave all
of the men smiles (especially
when the ladies came down
into .the audience).
It is hard to believe that all of
that talent is not on Broadway
and we are so lucky that they
have chosen to live in
Highlands County and work
this hard for months to keep us
happy. They deserved the
applause and standing ovation.
I hope that everyone who
appreciates "live theater" will
be able to get a ticket for
"Chicago." It really is stupen-
dous.

It is great to be an American citizen


Just in case some generous
friend invites me for
Thanksgiving dinner, I want to
be prepared for that moment
when each guest is asked to tell
what he or she is most thankful
for. Truthfully, the thing I'm
most thankful for is being invit-
ed to dinner, because I'm a
lousy cook, but I don't want to
say that; I want to say some-
thing so memorable, so dramat-
ic and heartfelt that everyone
else will be jealous.
I started to make a long list a
few weeks ago of all the good
things in my life. I had to cross
off quite a few; but see if you
think any of the following
would pass the test for being
memorable.
I'm thankful for:
Thanksgiving Day parades,
sports channels, comfortable
shoes, fuzzy slippers, large
pockets I can stuff stuff into,
zippers on my jackets, sun hats,


Vote destroyed

Rove's dream
Editor:
The Democrats have taken
control of both the Senate and
the House. Unfortunately, we
did not gain this control
because of our brilliant strategy
to get us out of Iraq, but
because of ithe heei incompe-
tence of the Republican parts
to govern. Their greed. corrup-
tion and lying are what killed
the beast, not beauty.
The actions of Cunningham.
Ney, DeLay, Abramoff and
Foley, to name a few, were
caught by authorities taking
and giving bribes, stealing mil-
lions of dollars, sexual indis-
cretion and lying to cover up
their actions. They're sympto-
matic of the Republican Party.
It's possible they compromised
the security of our country and
they definitely jeopardized the
safety and well-being of our
fighting men and women in
Iraq.
We now have a lame duck
president who has to work with
people that only last week was
denigrating as weak and want-
ing to save the lives of our sol-
diers whom he had placed in
harm's way in Iraq because of
his desire to be a war-time pres-
ident.
The vote also destroyed Karl
Rove's dream of a Republican
dynasty that would last for
decades. Remember Hitler's
* claim of the Third Reich lasting
a thousand years?
Karl Rove coined the expres-
sion "Wake up America!"
We did!

Point system

needs adjusting
Editor:
The real winner lost the Idol
competition Saturday night and
so did we. When someone gets
robbed, we all lose.
By the audience's applause,
Flor Gonzalez was the favorite
and he won tickets to Cypress
Gardens.
Then the judges dropped the
ball and chose not to put him
through until the last round of
the competition. I believe that
the judges overruled the major-
ity of the audience simply
because he dressed in casual
clothing. The judges use a point
system to score each singer and
one area is on their clothing.
Well, if this was the case, then
the point system must need
some drastic adjustments.
What he lacked in that area,
he certainly more than riade up
for in every other area.
Flor Gonzalez is a very good
singer. He has fantastic stage
presence and his personality,
really shines through as he
interacts with the audience.
When someone is truly as
talented as he is, you don't care
what they are wearing. You are
so caught up in the moment,
enjoying what you are hearing
and excited for him because he
is doing such a great job! He
makes the connection with the
audience and that should be the
most important thing to get
points for.
I think he has what it takes to
make it in this business, but
before I finish I think it is

blocker and sun-
shine.

Democrats were

not winners

Editor:
The "Dems" did not win the:
House and Senate. The
Republicans blew it by one of
the most inept campaigns (in
my three-fourths of a century
life) I have ever seen. Ear,
marks "G.O.P." used for pet
projects were totally out of
control and the "G.O.P."
deserved to be dumped from
power. I am able to point out,
innumerable, idiotic things
they did but unfortunately it
would take a 600-page letter to
point it all out. ,
I would suggest that G.W.
Bush resign when the new
Congress is sworn in. Then as
soon as Dick Cheney is sworn
in, he should resign and give
Nancy Pelosi the Presidency.
With a Democratic House and
Senate, it would give them two
years to really mess everything
up and just maybe the
American people would wake
up to what the Democrats are
and boot them out in '08.
As the old saying goes
"Hope springs eternal."

World is in

grave danger

Editor:
I would like to share with
readers a copy of a letter to
Senator John McCain I wrote
following the "Meet the Press"
program.
Senator John McCain:
Please do yourself and the
American people (including
myself) a favor. Don't run for


president.
, When your book "Faith of
Our Fathers" came out I didn't
run, J galloped out tobu\ .that
book!
I wept throughout, not will-
ing to put it aside; and I was so
proud of you!
Had you been running for
any office I would have voted
for you right then and there!
2000 came along. I was
singing your praises .getting the
vote out. "Vote for John
McCain." Suddenly ,ou turned
on us and sold out to W. Bush.
I don't know whether he
paid you off or promised you
the moon. He has no business
in the White House.,
You became his friendly
"back slapper", and baker in
the campaign, shooting your-
self in the foot.
I am (was 2000 Republican)
now a Democrat. However I
have always exercised my right
to vote.
I am 86 and have a strong
will to vote for the person I
think will best represent and
lead our country, regardless of
party.
My husband drove a 38-ton
tank in the South Pacific in
World War II. My brother
served in infantry in Europe, at
the time. Both are, now
deceased.
My heart aches for our beau-
tiful young people who are in
Iraq for no reason whatever.
Saddam Hussein had nothing
to hurt us with. George W.
Bush was 'and is our greatest
danger and the world has been
put in grave danger because of
him and the hard mentality of
the Republican party.
It is now time to unload this
corrupt and evil party of thugs
and lobbyists.
Time to get the "old timers"
out of the way so a whole new
staff of young, intelligent and
hopefully more honest and
truthful can show the world
America can clean itself up and
once again- be viewed and


appreciated as compassionate
people with integrity and
decent law-abiding citizens
Sho __recognize and_care_ about
the sick. the elders and our chil-
dren % ho represent our future.
Let's pause and remember
our war was with Afghanistan,
not with Iraq.
In righteous indignation we
should ha'e gone after those
who bombed us on Sept. 11,
2001.
We could have stopped the
Taliban. Now the\ are increas-
ingl1 being supported bN poppy
fields that should be cabbage
patches today.
Let us all throw our weight
behind Barack Ohama new
blood in Wash i ngton!
* Those of you who are sup-
posed to be working for us iwe,
the people) have personal goals
and: theories that are set in
cement.
You can't or won't learn the
word "change" because, "But
we have always done it this
way."
Besides you like the chance
to steal from the taxpayers,
making deals amongst yourself
so you won't get caught.
If you do get caught and you
can't lie your way out of it, you
can pay your clergy to say a
good word for you that will get
you off the hook and bribe your
friends who are "judges."
Yes, our judicial system is as
crooked as our government.
, I apologize only for this "sta-
tionery," if it can be called that.
I am moving; no, no, not out of
this country! All the good stuff
to write on is packed.
Remember this: America
owes no apology for leaving
Iraq; only for attacking them,
should we apologize.
They can and will settle their
own affairs, if America will
mind its own business in the
future.
You can fight forever but
there will be no winners in Iraq,
only dead Americans.

SAY all the rest of the
ObAYS electronic gadgets
that have become
Ryan an indispensable
part of my life. I'm
thankful the last
hurricane missed
my house, that no nocturnal
barking dogs live in my neigh-
borhood and that I can wear
lacey lingerie under my blue
jeans.
For the bunny rabbits, squir-
rels, lizards, and big turtles that
appear on my front porch and
the screen door without which
they might walk right into my
living room. For sidewalks,
paved roads, school crossing
guards, and traffic lights at
which I can, "Turn right on red
after making full stop."
I'm thankful for lolli-pops,
ice cream, Porterhouse steak,
mashed potatoes, chocolate
pudding, hot dogs. cheeseburg-
ers and anti-acids. For the


unfailing love and support of
my family. For my -loyal,
patient and understanding
friends. I'm thankful that my
health is as good as it is, and
that my finances are sufficient
for my needs.
Last but not least, I'm thank-
ful I live in the United States. I
started to list all the benefits of
being an American citizen, but
ran out of paper, so suffice it to
say, I'd rather be here than any
place else.
Not memorable enough you
say? Well it's the best I can do
right now, but God willing I'll
be around next year with a new
list.
Happy Thanksgiving, every-
body.

Students were

deceived

Editor:
"Islam Be not deceived"
I would like to respond to the
students that said their perspec-
tive was broadened by a
Muslim speaker at their school.
They said the speaker stated
that the terrorists' motives were
not motivated by the Quran. I'
beg to differ. There are many
verses such as 47:4 that says,
"when you meet unbelievers in
fight, smite their necks." That
does not sound peaceful to me.
According to this Quran, a
Muslim is supposed to do one
of three things to nonbelievers:
(1) Kill them, (2) convert them,
or (3) subjugate them. Again,
this does not sound peaceful to
me.
There are guides to Islam
and the crusades that provide a
great deal of information that
the followers of this so-called
"peaceful religion" and the lib-
eral media may not want peo-
ple to know. Islam as a word
may mean peace, but as a reli-
gion it is as brutal as we are
seeing on videos showing
"peaceful Muslims" decapitat-
ing their captives.

Writer wrong

about statistics
Editor:
In his abrasive and largely
incoherent letter of Nov. 10,
Dean Johnson says that
Democrats have promoted
pedophilia and abortion for
more than 50 years. He mis-
quotes prominent Democrats
but fails to explain why he sup-
ported Mark Foley if Foley was
so obviously a misfit.


We are expected to believe
that the Republican Party
opposes homosexuality. How-
ever, neither the Republican
presidential platform for 2000
or 2004 contain a blanket con-
demnation of homosexuality.
Let me see if I understand
Johnson's position on who has
been promoting pedophilia the
last 50 years. Are we expected
to believe that Jimmy Carter
praised pedophiles when he
taught Sunday school at a
Baptist church in Washington?
In contrast, neither Ronald
Reagan nor the present incum-
bent could make time for
church. See Amy Sullivan's
article in New Republic for
October of 2004.
Although George W. Bush is
supposedly a Methodist, he is
one of only four presidents
since the beginning who
refused to meet with the
Methodist bishops.
Is Johnson aware of the rise
in abortions during the Bush
administration? Glenn Stassen
is a pro-lifer and a seminary
professor with knowledge of
statistics. He found that the
number of abortions had
declined to a 24-year low by
the end of the Clinton adminis-
tration. The number of abor-
tions has increased by about
50,000 per year under the Bush
administration. Economic con-
ditions, job loss to foreign
countries and lack of health
insurance contribute to the high
abortion rate.

Some questions

to ask ourselves
Editor:
My name is Henry Ford. I
employ one million people 'and
I pay them $30 per hour; $10


per hour goes for taxes, $10 per
hour is for benefits and $10 per
hour is for each employee to
spend. There are 10,000 people
just like me who own compa-
nies in the United States. I
make $10 per day off of each
employee.
All the people working buy
America cars. Unemployment
is down. People are paying
taxes. There is less crime.
All the "Henry Fords" are
spending their $10 million in
America. America is strong.
People are happy.
Then Japan builds a car that
is better and cheaper than
American cars. People in
America start to buy Japanese
cars. Now Henry Ford isn't
selling as many cars so he has
to lay off people. Now Henry
Ford employs 750,000 people.
People buy more Japanese cars
so Henry Ford lays off more
people. Now Henry Ford isn't
making $10 million anymore.
Now Henry Ford has to look
for cheaper labor so he can
make cars as cheap as Japan
can. He goes to Mexico,
Ireland and even Japan. Now
all the "Henry Fords" in
America are doing the same
thing. More jobs are lost but
people that are laid off will
work for cheaper wages.
Now people are working for
$10 per hour; $2 for benefits,
$3 for taxes and $5 to spend.
These people can't afford a
home, they have to buy foreign
cars because they are cheaper
and now they have to pay for
all or at least part of their health
insurance. As our grandfather
said, "The pen is mightier than
the sword." Remember Pearl
Harbor!
After reading this, you can
ask yourself: "If the company
is Japanese or German, etc.
what country will profit from
it?" "Do those companies have


as many retirees or employees
at this time to pay pensions to
or health and other insurance
benefits to?" "What will hap-
pen to all the people employed
by companies who make parts,
etc. for the American
Companies?" "What will hap-
pen to all the people employed
by the Health Insurance com-
panies if they no longer have
these companies buying insur-
ance for their employees?"
"Why are we open and wel-
coming to international compe-
tition while our Asian competi-
tors use non-tariff barriers to
maintain closed domestic mar-
kets? What of their manipula-
tion of the yen that has provid-
ed a subsidy of as much as
$15,000 per vehicle for
Japanese automakers?"
Remember, we still use more
than 75.percent domestic parts
in our vehicles compared to
much less by Japanese,
European and Korean vehicles
combined.

Support was

county-wide

Editor:
Thank you, thank you, thank
you. Mere words-seem so inad-
equate in expressing our grati-
tude for the solid county-wide
support we -received in this
campaign. Being new to the
election process, we were
dependent on so many of you

the campaign.
Thanks to the more than 125
contributors who supported us

sary for signs, ads, radio spots
and mail outs.
We appreciate very much the


endorsements and words of
encouragement we received
from throughout the county.
From Avon Park to Venus we
were warmly received.
Thanks also for those who
provided opportunities for us to
meet and get to know voters in
all areas of the county.
For all those who were will-
ing to let us display a sign on
their property and the many,
many homeowners who put up
yard signs we give special
thanks.
Huge thanks are also due to
all those who stood at the polls
on the day of the election to
greet and encourage voters to
support us in the voting booth.
I would also like to express
my appreciation to Mr. (J.D.)
Barrett for helping keep this a
clean campaign.
We look forward to the next
four years and will work hard
to keep Highlands County the
best place to live, work and
retire. I appreciate your support
and the confidence you have
placed, in me to serve as your
Commissioner from District 4.

scrapers
If \ou haven't been at
Highlands Hammock State
Park lately. y ou will have
missed one of the latest
additions to their museum
collection a road
scraper.
This particular model of
road scraper brings man\
memories to mn mind
\I w'-ww.agtl.coimoiges' H
ectdiv B3801 .jipi NI folks
used the same model to
scrape the roads of an allot-
ment in Ohio during mN
adolescence. MI father
would pull the scraper with
a tractor and mx mom
would run the scraper
itself. A geared crank con-
trolled the set of the
scraper, either close to the
right or left side of the
road. The blade %\as also
geared. and was physicallI
pushed or pulled into place
to set the direction of the
cut Two hand-" heels that
were xwaist-hieh controlled
the depth of the cut of the
blade.
It took a lot of skill to
make the scraper cork cor-
rectl\. The blade was raised
or lowered so the slag
would be leveled across the
roadbed. If the blade %was
set too deeply. it would dig
a rut that would fill with
water and create a small
chasm in the roadbed. This
chasm could erode into an
impassable quagmire with
the next rain. The person
running the scraper had to
know\ % here the blade
needed to be. both the
angle directional) of front
to back and side to side in
depth
MNI job %%as to sit on the
back of the road scraper
'and sing. The tractor and.
the blade scraping were so
- loud that I could exercise
mx locall chords and no
one would e\er know if I
missed a note or not. I did
ha\e to be careful at times
that I didn't get bounced
off the back end. If we hit
a rut unexpectedly. I would
sometimes hate to run to
catch up and jump back
onto my seat on the bottom
step.
The road scraper was my
first experience of men and
their toys. Because of the
strength of arms needed to
raise and lower the blade,
man\ men volunteered to
"help the little ladx out"
and tried to replace my
mom. There's onl\ one
time I can remember that
my dad allowed someone
other than mi mother to
run the scraper. As I
remember it. the\ had to
%work tw ice as long the next
week to undo the ha\oc the
guy had done. I don't
remember there being
another time someone took
o'er the scraping.
Today. I took a digital
photo of the road scraper at
the Hammock so that I
could e-mail it to m\ folks.
The scraper there is painted
in bright colors of red and
fellow. Our scraper \\as
rust-colored forged iron.

Erxcutirn Eanoi
rue friendship is a pre-
cious thing. A friendship
that lasts through the
years is priceless.
Best of friends since pre-
school. a group of 12 ladies
from Sebnng ha'e been enjoy-
ing "Girls' Night Out" at least
once a year for the past 15
years. Last month (October),.
10 of the 12 ladies enjoyed
three nights out in Nexw York
City.
This year was special. The
women were all born in 1953.
They are all 53 years old and
were celebrating their 35th
class reunion, all graduating
from Sebring High School.
"I just thought that %was real-
ly neat so I asked the girls
"hat they thought about doing
something special and they
told me to plan a trip." Part\
Dumont said, adding that she


ided i








ndsh


rarely ever leaves Highlands
County so the challenge was
accepted.
Dumont asked the girls
where they'd like to go and do.
New York City \\as the chosen
place, the "do" didn't matter as
long as they were together,
though there %was a request for
a Broadway show. The rest %was
left up to Dumont.
So, on Oct. 12 Dumont.
Monica Sauls, Sue Lowerv
Buice. Nancy Lilyquist
Odham. Karen Dean Meade.
Wendy Bowers Keppley. Tricia
Leaphart Cox. Donne Sue
Long Bartley and Debbie
Turner Moroney boarded
planes for New York City.
Odham now lit es in Titusille.
KeppleN in Brandon and
Moroney in Tallahassee. Cindy
Grubb Condran, a
Pennsylvania resident, took a
two-hour bus ride to join her
friends.


This cot sits in St. Paul Cathedral. a block away from Ground Zero.
as a tribute to the .he search and rescue workers for Sept. 11. 2001.
They stayed at St. Paul Cathedral to get some rest. Caring people
would lea'e teddy bears on the cots to lend comfort to the workers.


n


p


Unfortunately two friends -
Barbara Weston and Cathy
Heston Terrell were unable
to make the New York Citx trip
due to unforeseen circum-
stances.
"'This whole thing started as
a lark. Once a year %we all get
together for 'Girls' Night Out.'
or a therapy session. We can go
for months and are able to pick
up our friendship w here it left
off." Dumont said.
Condran added that you
have to be good friends in
order to travel together.
Dumont surveyed her
friends to find out ho liked to
sleep w ith a fan on. who liked
to sleep with the telev ision on.
\ ho might snore, etc. "I w ant-
ed to make sure everyone was
matched up right." she said.
Some of the girls had "room
meetings" to talk about what to
take and not to take.
Condran even brought a
couple of Sound Machines that
helped drown out the sound of
snoring in a couple of the
rooms. "'Someone snores and
someone else snores that does-
n't realize they snore," she
laughed.
A stretch limo met the group
of women flying to New York
from Sebring. They rode in
style to the hotel at Times
Square and the fun began.
Dinner in Little Italy was first
on the agenda.
Early on Sauls told the
ladies that the) didn't have to
be glued to the hip. Dumont
had partnered ever one up
w ith a buddy and gave them
laminated "calling cards" with
everyone's cell phone numbers
in case they needed to call
someone else in the group. All
of that was good, but everyone
stayed together through the
trip.
The ladies bought tickets for
the double decker tour bus. the
best wa\ to tour New York
City, they said. "You get to see
everything, hear the history,
hear about the architecture.
find out what movies %were
filmed where, everything. and
you can figure out what you
want to see and where you
want to go from there,"
Dumont said. "You can get off
and on as many times as you
"ant."
From there, the group went
shopping in Chinatown.

Moving around New York City on a double decker bus was the way
to go. Cindy Grubb Condran (from left), Wendy Bowers Keppley,

learn about the city's history while taking a ride.


Their first full dax in New
York City started by opening
the "Today Show." ..."We were
on there three times," Dumont
said.
It %\as at the "Today Show"'
opening where the ladies were
approached by a producer of
the new "Dr. Keith Ablow
Show.' They gladly accepted
the invitation to be part of the
audience, but soon after learn-
ing that the subject was male
pattern baldness, the ladies
found a wvay to make an early
escape.
Dumont said. "It was fun to
see behind the scenes of a talk
show, but we wanted to do
more" than be part of a talk
show audience.
Their next stop was where
most New" York City tourists
eventually visit Ground
Zero.
"'We walked through the St.
Paul's Cathedral., which "\as a
block away and didn't have a
single pane of glass broke.
When we walked out the front.
we were struck by the devasta-
lion of Ground Zero." Dumont
said.

Saturday was spent touring

Culture Fest where about 200
vendors offered their wares.
"Going to the top of the

thought Keppley wanted to
share with her friends.
"New York City is a huge

element but w\e met the kindest

since the old seedy Times

Sunday morning saw\
Dumont and Sauls attending
Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral
before boarding their planes for
the return trip to Florida.
Will Girls' Night Out contin-
ue? It already has. Condran
flew in Oct. 25 and all 12 of
the girls gathered the next
night to share stories about
their trip %with the two friends
who weren't able to make it.
Besides, "'we're already
planning our next trip. Next
year we're thinking about New
Orleans." Dumont said.
And it's not just the numbers
that bring a common bond to
the "Girls' Night Out" clan.
Condran explains. "We have
all had struggles. This has been
a rough year. A lot of us have
lost loved ones and it %%as a
nice break .... an opportunity to
reflect and enjoy the memories
and make new ones."
The late actress Helen Haves
once said., "The hardest years
in life are those between 10
and 70" and while that may be
true, Sebring has a group of 12
women who have stood beside
each other in good times and in
bad since they were in pre-
school and they're still stand-
ing together. clasped tightly in
a friendship like no other.







News-Sun, Friday, November 17, 2006


Like the crowded dinner
table at grandma's straining
from the weight of casseroles
and turkey, this week I bring
enough cinematic sustenance to
leave you bloated and waddling
toward the living room to watch
an afternoon of football. So
many new films sprouted at our
two theaters this week that I
took it upon myself to sort
through the avalanche of veg-
etables tumbling from the
autumn-movie cornucopia.
For those of you who heed
my recommendations, I hope I
can offer some insight so you'll
not waste precious holiday
vacation time wondering why
you flushed your $7 down the
toilet. For those who don't, like
I said, there's plenty of football.

'Borat: Cultural
Learnings of America
for Make Benefit
Glorious Nation of
Kazakhstan'
This movie was highly antic-
ipated and for many critics
nationwide, the end-all-be-all
of modern comedy. Borat
(Sacha Baron Cohen) is an
international news correspon-
dent who travels to America
(first New York, then cross-
country to Orange County) with
his hideous and hairy producer
Azamat (Ken Davitian). Along
the way he encounters politi-
cians, a driving instructor, fem-
inists, an etiquette tutor, a pros-
titute, an uptight, high society
dining party and a few narrow-
minded, backwoods citizens.
It's a farce made with real peo-
ple, not actors. His shtick is to
use his awkward innocence and
ignorance to make those with
whom he interacts feel as
uncomfortable as possible. This
includes inappropriate table
conversation and odd
Kazakhstani customary greet-
ings, but mostly just boatloads
of potty humor and sexual ref-
erences. If you're not offended
-by .'somethings just wait..five
minutes. apd it %.ill get around
- to your own personal taboo. It's
hard not to squirm with vicari-
ous embarrassment during sev-
eral lengthy episodes. That
being said, "Borat" did make
me laugh at times. As he falls in
love with Pamela Anderson, she
becomes the focus of his
California quest, which gives
him a love-struck softer side (I
guess). He's likable, but by the
end, he's somewhat tiresome. If
you enjoyed the "Jackass"
movies, you'll probably like
this.

'A Good Year'
Ridley Scott makes some of
the most aesthetically pleasing
films of his generation. He's
one of my favorite directors,
but he's a bit off the mark with
his latest offering. Russell
Crowe plays Max Skinner, a

clumsily pursue humor is not
enough to fill a two-hour film.
The movie is, however, very
beautiful. It's enjoyable for the
simple reason that it delights
your senses with wine, food and
glorious pastoral views of the
French countryside. I found it
to be soothing, if not riveting
entertainment.

"Marie Antoinette"
About the only thing energiz-
ing in this whole quiet yet ram-
bling debacle is the occasional
'80s punk song. So much of the
film is spent trying to overhear
whispers and waiting for things
to get going (mostly
Antoinette's idling love life)
that when the action begins to
stir we're .ready for it.,to. end.
Kirsten Dunst plays the leg-
endary French/Austrian queen,
but her giggling and dimples
put you more in mind of her
cheerleading role in "Bring it
On" than a sovereign monarch.
The film is similar to the
baroque style of art that deco-
rates every gilded nook and
cranny of the set pretty but
pointless. Dunst is lifeless, Rip
Torn (King Louis XV) is a drag, .
and Jason Schwartzman (King
Louis XVI) is positively dread-'
ful. A veritable snoozer.

'Stranger Than Fiction'
Ahh, the saving grace of my
movie viewing week.
Pleasantly surprised doesn't
begin to describe how I felt
watching this clever tale of
Harold Crick (Will Ferrell), a
mopey Internal Revenue
Service agent who finds himself


suddenly followed by a voice
narrating his life. Harold is a
man of routine who passes time
counting toothbrush strokes and
steps to the bus stop. Hedlives a
solitary life until the voice
(Emma Thompson) alerts him
to the monotony of his exis-
tence. The narrator becomes an
omniscient conscience steenng
him through his day-to-day life
until the phrase "little did he
know" lets him in on his
impending death. Taking the
advice of literary professor
Jules Hilbert (Dustin Hoffman),
Harold begins to live his life to
the hilt, taking up the guitar and
pursuing a relationship with a
razor-tongued, bohemian baker
(Maggie Gyllenhaal). The film
is reminiscent of "Eternal
Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"
(also highly recommended) in
its temporal and spatial hocus-
pocus. It's at once tender and
wise, and the flawed but boyish
charm of a toned-down Ferrell
makes for a truly relatable lead
character. Like a slice of warm
pumpkin pie, you'll be thankful
for indulging in this movie.

Thanksgiving: A day



to remember blessings


What is the definition of a hero'?
Well the dictionary defines it as, "a
person of distinguished courage or Xlol
ability, admired for their brave deeds
and noble qualities" or "a person noted
for feats of courage or nobility of pur-
pose, especially one w ho has risked or
sacrificed his or her life."
What are noble qualities? Noble is
defined as. "of an exalted moral or
mental character or excellence." Cops
Typically we think of heroes as movie CHR
actors, athletes, music stars, but a little
closer to home for us they are some- Barry S
times nurses, firefighters and cops.
What\ er or % homever your hero is
see if these fit the definition. Are they
distinguished (characterized by excellence,. do
they display courage and bravery'" Are they of
exalted moral character? How many times do we
hear about our supposed heroes being arrested for
drugs. committing immoral acts. pornography,
abusing children, defrauding the public., etc.?
In the type of hero classes I listed there are
truly heroes, in the \worldly sense, that exist but
the ones sou always hear about are the fallen
heroes vho's sins ha\e been found out. What do
all these heroes have in common? The\ are all in
the public's eye. And when one falls we all fall
right'" Wrong! We all feel the effect of it because
the public forgets that one bad apple in the basket
doesn't mean the whole basket is bad. Their
actions affect all of us.
People draw conclusions and stereotype peo-
ple such as saying all nurses are mean, all music
stars do drugs, or all cops cheat on their spouses.
It is simply not true but people %will clump us
together 'with the few w ho do commit such
immoral acts.
So v\ho should your hero be, who should your
children's hero be? Hero is also defined as some-
one ho has performed a heroic act, such as an
officer \who gises his life for his partner or some
unknown n citizen. Ho" about someone who gave

their life for everyone' What's the sa\-
ing. "Sacrifice the one to save the mul-
titude?"
How about a person \\ho gate their
life unselfishly, willingly for e'ersone
in the past. present and future. Yes
that's right I'm talking about Jesus
Christ. And b\ the 'way, did you see
anything in your definitions about
heroes being arrogant or self-ser' ing' I
didn't either. Jesus "was the most hum-
ble hero you will e\er meet.
In Matthe'w 20-28 or Mark 10:45 it
clearly tells us, "'For e'en the Son ot
Man did not come to be senred, but to
ser\e, and to give his life as a ransom
for many." That is the true definition of


a hero.
He was a ser-,ant just like we are supposed to
be. One more definition before I close: Public
Servant "a person w'ho holds a go ernment
position by election or appointment." Ser' ant -
"a person ho serves others."
I want to ask all the officers out there do out
fit the definition of a hero. of a servant. If you
don't it's 'ern eas\ to do. We hate plenty of
acronyms in la\w enforcement so let's add one
more to help you become a true hero. WWJD.
which stands for What Would Jesus Do?
Read up on the character of Christ and then in
e'ery decision sou make remember W WVJD and I
guarantee you %%ill make the right decision every
time. Make Jesus your hero and remember to
ser'e not be served.
God bless you and I pray that you seek Him
out to be \our hero. \our children's hero and ,our
children's children's hero.

Thanksgiv ing on the fourth Thursday in
November.
Although Thanksgiving has undergone some
changes through the years,. the basic intent for the
holiday 'sas to give thanks to God. In fact. one of
the first Thanksgiting observances in America
%was entirely religious and did not involIe feast-
ing. On Dec 4, 161;. 39 English settlers arrived
at Berkeley Plantation, on the James Ri'er near
Shat is no%\ called Charles CitN. Va. The group's
charter required that the da\ of arrival be
observed yearly as a day of thanksgi ing to God
While Thanksgi% ing Day finds most of us stur-
rounded by family and friend-, as well as a boun-
t. of food. it is a special time to remember the
blessings from the father. We. in America. are the
most blessed people on the planet. I dare sas


there w ill be more food on our tables
on Thanksgiving Day this \ear than
some families in third 'world countries
%till see in years.
And as proud as I am of being an
American. I am ever more proud to be
part of the kingdom of God. As
Christians we should pause this
Thanksgiting to gite God thanks for
not only the physical blessings we
enjoy but also for the manifold spiritu-
al blessings that God has blessed us
with in Christ Jesus.
A great acntiity for evern family
member this Thanksgiving would be
to take ad\ ice from one of the songs
we stin: "Count your many blessing,
name them one b\ one, and it \~ ill sur-


prise you w hat the Lord has done.'" It would do us
well to sit down and contemplate the wonderful
things God has done, is doing, and will do for
each one of us as his children.
Yes. it is true that as Christians we should be
thankful e\er, day. And we should strike daily to
gile God thanks for all things based from I
Thessalomans 5:18. Yet, as Christians let's not
allo, this national holiday to become something
other than it %%as intended to be ... a day of
Thanksgi% ing to the father for his abundant grace
and mercy.

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
Nov. 16, 2001: It took 12
seconds of football for the
Avon Park Red Devils'
dreams of a state title to
evaporate in a 20-6 region-
al semifinal loss to Bishop
Verot. Trailing 7-6 with just
under three minutes to
play, the Devils gave up
two touchdowns in two
plays one by the
Vikings' offense and one
by the defense. The back-
to-back scores were the
result of a second half
dominated by the Vikings,
who held Avon Park to just
two first downs and 32
yards of offense in the final
two quarters to erase the
Devils' 6-0 halftime lead.

"You don't know what to expect in this sport." Avon Park
co-head coach Ed Brown said of his team's mid-match spurt.

Turkey Trot center of


Thanksgiving festivities


at Highlands Hammock


With cooler
temperatures
descending on
our area, my
mind races
ahead to the
upcoming
Thanksgiving
week. Here at
the Park, we will
embark on our
busiest weekend
of the year.
There will be
hundreds of peo-


ple enjoying
their holiday weekend mingled
with the aroma of sizzling
bacon, roasting turkeys and
that luscious scent of campfire
smoke.
Within this delectable haze,
groups of men cluster around
portable televisions watching
the all-important football
game. Children laugh and play
made-up games with new
friends as moms relax and
enjoy swapping campfire
recipes. Families reconnect and
spend quality time together.
Yes, Thanksgiving has come
once more!
But Thanksgiving isn't just
our busiest weekend of the
year, it is also the date of the
Friends of Highlands
Hammock's annual Turkey
Trot 5K race. Many of our
campers enjoy participating, as
do more than 100 people from
the surrounding communities.


The race begins
promptly at 8
a.m. on
Thanksgiving
morning and
offers the per-
fect start to a
long weekend
filled with food
and relaxation.
Pre-registra-
tion is recom-
mended in order
to facilitate the
morning's event


and entry forms
are available online at
www.FloridaStateParks.org/hig
hlandshammock. Registration
fees are just $15 per person
and all proceeds benefit the
park via the Friends of.
Highlands Hammock, a citizen
support organization.
Friends of Highlands
Hammock was begun in 1991
by a group of concerned indi-
viduals that wanted to promote
a partnership between the com-
munity and its state park. The
partnership is mrulti-faceted
and includes promoting public
awareness, volunteering, assist-
ing in resource management
issues, concerns and proce-
dures, presentation and support
of interpretive programs and
the very important process of
fund raising.
All funds raised by the
Friends organization remain
here at Highlands Hammock

and are used to enhance the
park facilities. Some items that
the Friends organization has
contributed to include both
new playgrounds, wildlife
information displays, the con-
cert stage, purchases of equip-
ment and machinery, a new
modem campground restroom,
and the placement of mile
markers for a certified track.'
When you visit with us, you
will notice on those markers an
inscription that states "In mem-
ory of Dick Brown." Brown,
who was an avid runner, was
also an original founder of the
Friends of Highlands
Hammock. The Turkey Trot
5K race is held in honor of -
and to continue the memory of
- his dedication to our park.
We hope that you will con-
sider joining us to race toward
impro\ ing y our piece ot "the
REAL Florida" here at
Highlands -Hammock. There
are 15 di\ visions for both the
men and \ omen this year, with


trophies for the overall male
and female winners. Medals
will also be awarded to the top
three male and female runners
in each division.
Don't have any dinner plans
yet? Why not plan on enjoying
a casual and hearty
Thanksgiving meal from the
Hammock Inn? From 11 a.m.
to 4 p.m. on Thanksgiving
Day, they will be serving
turkey or ham dinners, with
your choice of three sides, tra-
ditional fixings and a drink for
just $11.50 per person.
Reservations aren't required
and you don't even have to
dress up.
Meals can be eaten inside
the restaurant, or prepared to
go in case you'd rather eat at

picnic tables.

Victory lives

up to name

against Eagles
By JOHN BEDELL
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK The Walker
Memorial Academy Lady
Eagles clawed to within six
points of defending district
champion Victory Christian in
the second half, but the home
team could get no closer as the
Storm escaped with a 43-33
win at Avon Park Middle
School Thursday night.
Victory's Amber White had
16 points and Walker's
Adrienne Asumbrado also had
16. Victory's Latesha
McDonald and Cassandra
McGill each had
Victr eight.
A"Blair Walz
gave us a lift in
Walker the third period,"
33 Walker coach
33 William Farmer
said. "Adrienne
Eagp ex Asumbrado start-
Avon Park JV ed taking the ball
on Monday to the basket and
that got us back
into the game."
The Eagles were down 25-11
at halftime but a quick 8-0 run
to open the third cut the lead to
25-19. The Storm bounced
back, but Walker closed the gap
again at the end of the quarter
and were trailing just 31-25 at
the buzzer. Walz had all six of
her points in the quarter and
Asumbrado scored six as well.
"In the fourth quarter we
didn't keep the intensity up and
they (Victory) are relentless on
the boards," Farmer said. "We
fought as hard as we could."
The Storm outscored the
Eagles 12-8 in the final quarter
for a comfortable 10-point vic-
tory.
"It's our first game and we
have a lot to work on," Victory
coach Marcus McDonald said.
"We are short-handed on the
bench. We have to play smart
and play good defense."
Walker's record stands at 1-
1. The Lady Eagles return to
action on Monday against the
Avon Park junior varsity.


RALLIES
Continued from 1D
Lake Placid goal.
Sydney Stewart was sensa-
tional in goal for Lake Placid,
making seven saves in the first
half. Stewart had no chance to
save Rivera's first goal during
the 51st minute. Rivera was
right in front and redirected a
rebound into the goal after
Stewart had made a diving
save. The Bulldogs scored the
match-winning goal off a cor-
ner kick when the ball sailed
into the penalty area and
rebounded in front of Rivera,
who kicked another short goal
to end the scoring.
Lake Placid coach Elizabeth
Sottile was pleased with her
team's play despite the out-
come.
"It was a fantastic game,"
she said. "Rachel made the first
goal ... and I know soccer is' a
team sport but with Ali (Lopez)
getting hurt, it really hurt us in
the forward position. I'm very
proud of the girls; with how
hard they played. Frostproof
usually beats us by a lot."

Shannon Gibbs of Sebring's Get A Grip Gymnastics team won the uneven bars title, as well as the vault,
balance beam and the floor exercise to win the Level 5 All-Around title at the Gene Stowe Invitational in
Tampa earlier this month.

Gymnastics

Get A Grip team shines at Invitational


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Get A Grip Gymnastics
Team had, an extremely successful trip to the
Gene Stowe Invitational in Tampa Nov. 4-5.
Leading the way was Shannon Gibb-. the only
Level 5 competing from Get A Grip. Gibbs beat
her own high scores in three events and walked
away with first place finishes in the vault, uneven
bars, balance beam, floor exercise and the All-
Around.
Maggie Brumfield and Breonna Smifi, who
are new to Level 4, showed off their vaulting
skills, with Brumfield scoring 9.250 to take first
place and Smith scoring a 9.025 for third place.


STREAKS
Continued from ID
wrestling opponents for loose
balls scoring eight and grab-
bing four rebounds.
Also chipping in late in the
game were Rachel Ashley and
Priscilla Adams, both fighting
for rebounds and scoring off of
the offensive glass.
In the end, it was a confused
and haggard looking DeSoto
squad that ultimately shot itself
in the foot. Missed wide open
layups and free throws let
Sebrine play at whatever pace
they desired.
At one point, a pair of tech-
nicals were called, giving both
teams two shots from the line
each. It was to be the game in a
nutshell, as the Bulldogs
missed them both and the
Streaks made theirs.,
"You might look at the score
and think we just killed them,"
said Sampson. "We didn't have
a lot of hustle."


DEVILS
Continued from 1D
the Devils with a second-period pin of Steve
Faulkner in the 135-pound bout. :
"He's very limited in his Enrcglish. so whatever
he does is a bonus," coach Lee Elder said of Diaz,
who also won his two preseason matches. "\\We
have to use interpreters and he's basically learn-
ing through hand signals, but he's got a lot of nat-
ural ability and he likes the sport."
After Jason Roman, who jumped up a weight
class to 145 pounds, was stopped by Nick Dex in
the second period and Kemosi Hatten lost a 16-9
decision to Robbie Hunt at 152 pounds to put the
Devils down by three, Bland took the mat and
began Avon Park's turnaround.
The Devils' lone state qualifier last year as a
freshman, 160-pounder Bland controlled
McKeel's Sean Brady from the start, leading 7-0
heading into the third period when he finally
stuck Brady to the mat to give Avon Park a 12-9
lead.
It took Jonathan Fils just 37 seconds to make


that lead 18-9 as he wasted no time pinning
Austin Butler in the 171-pound bout.
Scott E\ans and lshuel Guzman then followed
'a ith forfeit % ins to raise the Devils lead to 30-9
before Josue Ortiz sealed the win for Avon Park
Smith the second-t'/istest pin of the night.
Ortiz. a senior \.ho normally wrestles at 215
pounds, jumped up to the heavyweight class in
order to get some match time. Giving up at least
50 pounds to the Wildcats' Greg Daughtrey did-
n't hinder Ortiz, ho%% e er, as he quickly put
Daughtres on his back and got the fall in just 45
seconds. .
The Devils had a pair of forfeits at 103 and 112
pou nd then McKeel's Billy Connoy pinned Josh
Sala in 3:08 of the 119-pound match to make it
36-27, but John Chittum won by forfeit at 125
pounds for Avon Park, and, Steven Acevedo
closed out the night in style with a dominating
19-2 technical fall over Joey Shatto in the third
period of the 130-pound match.
"Most of the kids came out and did what we
expected them to do," Elder said. "There's
always room for improvement, but a win is a
win,"
