Lake Placid council keeps police department


Crowd comes out in support
of local law enforcement
By MATT MURPHY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The townspeople who descend-
ed upon town hall Tuesday night were expecting the
beginnings of a long discussion into disbanding the
town's police department.
What they got was an answer.
After seeing there was no support for the idea of dis-
solving the department and putting the town under the
jurisdiction of the Highlands County Sheriff's Office,
the town council decided to end the debate. They voted
unanimously to keep the police department as is.
A crowd that literally extended out the door of the
building filled the meeting room. The discussion was
prompted by Mayor Tom Katsanis at December's town
council meeting as a way to save approximately
$800,000 a year for the town's taxpayers. If the idea
had passed, Lake Placid would have been put under the
jurisdiction of the sheriff's office.
Katsanis asked audience members to give Police
Chief Phil Williams a round of applause at the begin-
ning of the meeting. He called Williams a "great chief'
and emphasized the discussion was not a reflection on

Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton is adamant
Tuesday evening that it was not her idea to disband the
Lake Placid Police Department and urges the Lake
Placid City Council to base its decision on the town's
budget. Ultimately, the council decided not to disband
the police department.

the performance of Williams or his eight-person depart-
ment.
Katsanis also emphasized to the citizens at the meet-
ing he was just the messenger.
"I bring you the problem," Katsanis said. "You
decide what's the best. You people have a say so and


we're here to serve you."
A succession of town residents spoke against the
proposal, many saying there needs to be more police in
the town, and not less.
After the remarks of the first few speakers, council
member Jim Waller asked if there was anyone in the
audience who was in favor of disbanding the police
department. There was no response.
Sheriff Susan Benton spoke at the meeting, saying
she wanted to make clear that the 'discussion was not
the sheriff office's idea.
"We did not ask for this," she said. "Susan Benton
did not come to Lake Placid asking for your police
department. We have plenty of work to do."
Benton said she and Williams "were friends before
this mess, and we'll be friends after this mess. I am
somewhat offended that two fine agencies have been
put out there against each other."
Benton said there were "all kinds of options" other
than disbanding the police department, including cut-
ting staff, changing the way calls are handled, and oth-
ers. The discussion "truly all goes back to what the
town can afford from a budget standpoint. It shouldn't
be about the sheriff's office versus the police depart-
ment."

Two escaped

teens caught

in South

Florida
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Two of
the three teenagers who
escaped from Last Chance
Ranch in Venus on New Year's
Eve have been caught in
Miami-Dade County.
That was the good news
Ginger Watters brought wor-
ried residents Whio gathered at
the American Legion Hall
Tuesday night for an update on
the situation. Watters is with
Florida Environmental
Institute, the company that
operates the ranch.
She said both the students at
the ranch and the personnel
there are sick over the incident,
which involved violence as the
three juveniles attacked a guard
with baseball bats in order to
escape. They also stole a
guard's Honda Civic.
One student, set to graduate
in February from the program,
was so upset, Watters said, that
he asked to be able to speak
Tuesday night, to apologize to
neighbors, and assure them of
how upset other students are.
In fact, Watters added, it was
a young graduate of the pro-
gram who made the apprehen-
sion of the two teens possible.
The three escapees had contact-
ed him after their escape, and
he had then contacted the
school.
He is also helping police
locate the third adolescent,
thought to be in Miami.
Watters said the boys who
come to the program are usual-
ly from other parts of Florida.
They range in age from 15 to
18 years old, at which point
they age out of the program.
They are boys with a history of
serious delinquent behavior, or
drug problems. An average stay
lasts 18 months.
Watters explained that there
are 10 levels of institutions
dealing with troubled youth.
From fairly open day programs
to high security residence pro-
grams. Last Chance Ranch is a

Gators national championship



means joy and merchandising


By MATT MURPHY
News-Sun
SEBRING Monday night was a wild
night for Florida Gators all over the coun-
try.
The University of Florida's resounding
41-14 victory over Ohio State University
in Monday night's BCS National
Championship Game was viewed by mil-
lions on television. The back room of
Sebring's Beef O'Brady's was filled with
more than 25 Gator fans, who watched the
action from a collection of televisions
while enjoying a large buffet.
But while watching the game at Beef
O'Brady's and other area restaurants was
loud and exciting for many Monday night,
it's hard to beat how Sebring resident Scott
Albritton watched the game.


In person.
Albritton, a UF alum and co-owner of
AllStar Auto Sales in Sebring, flew to
Glendale, Ariz., for the game like he does
for almost every bowl game. He said
Tuesday afternoon he was just trying to
recover.
"I'm just emotionally drained,"
Albritton said. "It was an unbelievable
experience."
The Gator fans' celebration at the stadi-
um in Glendale was loud and long, he said.
"No Gator fans left the stadium until
everything was over," he said. "It was just
Gators hugging Gators. I've never seen
such a spirited bunch. Everywhere we
went, if you had orange and blue on,
everyone was high-fiving. The Gator
Nation just came together. It was neat to


experience."
Despite widespread predictions of an
Ohio State blowout, Albritton said the 41-
14 Florida victory wasn't a surprise to him.
"I really did expect this win," he said. "I
let everybody know it, too. I've been say-
ing it for the past 30 days. It all went the
way I expected it, but it still seemed like a
dream."
Albritton said Ohio State fans were cor-
dial despite their team's disappointing per-
formance.
"The OSU fans were great fans," he
said. "Some games have a lot of tension
between teams and fans, but there was
none of that here. They were very compli-
mentary after the game. They came up to
us and congratulated us, which made it

SEBRING, FLORIDA
VOLUME 87/NUMBER 52


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING Asked to evaluate itself,
the Highlands County commission board
identified more weaknesses than
strengths.
The commissioners attended a goal
setting workshop directed by Glades
Electric general manager and chief exec-
utive officer Tommy Todd on Tuesday.
No goals were reached during the first
of two workshops, during which the
commissioners took a critical look at
themselves and the government they
run.


"You can't even begin to consider
where you're going without knowing
where you are at," Todd told the board at
the meeting's onset. "How we get there
isn't nearly as important as where we are
today and where we want to go."
Todd, who's been with Glades
Electric about 10 years, said he's been
facilitating brainstorming sessions since
the mid-1980s, but never before an audi-
ence and never for a governing body.
He commended the board for its effort
to quantify its goals, warning them that
whatever results won't be etched in
stone because of unforeseeable vari-


ables.
Todd had the commissioners, with
ongoing input from a half dozen citizens,
outline the board's strengths, challenges,.
threats and opportunities.
"You can refer to them as weakness-
es," Todd said, when county attorney
Ross MacBeth asked him to clarify a
definition.
In the hundred or so goals meetings
he's directed, Todd said he uses the term
"weaknesses" but chose the "chal-
lenges" euphemism because of the pubic
nature of the workshop.
The board identified 34 strengths and


41 weaknesses.
"If you're serious about this," Todd
said. "Everything on that challenge
board should be seen as an opportunity."
Highlands' strengths included the
county's financial condition, a strong
staff, sound policies, a diverse tax base,
legal representation, an informed citi-
zenry, civic organizations, a conserva-
tive approach to government, its rela-
tionship with developers and communi-
cations between constitutional officers
and municipalities.

County investigates LPHS wind retrofit


County lacks wind-
compliant shelters

south of Sebring

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING The Highlands
County Board of County
Commissioners approved a
wind-retrofit grant agreement
and two budget amendments
before recessing after an hour.
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart wasn't present for the
first part of the meeting, but
was expected to be at the
Highlands County Agri-Civic


Center when the board recon-
vened at I p.m. for its goal-set-
ting meeting.
If approved by the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency, Lake Placid High
-School could undergo a hurri-
cane-winds retrofit beginning in
2008 at an estimated total cost
of $1.6 million, Emergency
Manager Bill Nichols said.
Commissioner Andrew
Jackson asked Nichols what the
retrofit would entail and if the
high school had sustained hurri-
cane damage in the past.
Nichols said the school has
not.
The two-phase FEMA grant


would further reinforce the
walls of LPHS and add shutters
at a direct cost to Highlands'
taxpayers of about $420,000,
the county's match.
"$400,000 is the cheapest
way for you to provide a wind-
compliant shelter in the Lake
Placid area," Carl Cool, county
administrator, told the commis-
sioners.
Of the county's nine wind-
complaint shelters, Cracker
Trail Elementary School, in
Sebring, is the furthest south.
Another 54 non-wind-com-
pliant buildings can provide
shelter as "refuges of last
resort" in the county, Nichols


told the News-Sun.
As a rule of thumb, he said,
wind-compliant structures are
15 percent stronger than those
built to code.
During the 2004-2005 hurri-
canes, the shelters averaged
1,100 people per storm. As of
Tuesday (Avon Park High
School and Cracker Trail
Elementary are recent addi-
tions) the county had 4,000
spaces available in the nine
wind-compliant shelters.
"A very small percentage of
people (came) from outside the
county," Nichols said.
He said the state is "shelter
deficient" and there's a need for


a wind-compliant facility in
Lake Placid to serve the south-
ern portion of Highlands.
Nichols said Venus residents
are less likely to drive to
Sebring than to Lake Placid in
the event of a storm.
As a guide, he said residents
of concrete block homes can
remain in place during hurri-
cane threats, but those living in
mobile homes are advised to
seek shelter either in a neigh-
bor's concrete home or at a
county shelter.
"We want to put our people
in the safest possible structure,"
Nichols said.
The first phase of the grant


will cost the county about
$17,500 of a $70,000 grant to
access LPHS' needs.
If FEMA concurs and their
cost-benefit analysis deems the
project worthy, the school board
has asked that the work not
begin until the end of the school
year.
Nichols said the two-year
project wouldn't be approved in
time to begin construction this
year.
Without Tuesday's grant
agreement, the county could be
liable for the full amount of
Phase I's $70,000 if FEMA
decided LPHS didn't warrant
the retrofit, Nichols said.


CSX still on track


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK Captain
Donald Simmons, with the
city's code enforcement depart-
ment, reports that the CSX rail-
road has, so far, lived up to its
word regarding property that is
overgrown and dangerous to its
neighbors.
The company has indicated it
will clean out areas that have
become so clogged with over-
grown grass, shrubbery and
trees that they are unhealthy.
"We've gotten a proposal
from them. Since the new start
(at the end of last year, when
the city contacted the railroad
to complain), they have been
very cooperative," Simmons
said. "(Jeff Luthi) the man in
charge, came down himself and
drove the city with me while I
outlined the problems."
Simmons added that there
had been a delay while the rail-
road went through its bidding
process for a landscape contrac-
tor. The holiday season also
slowed the process somewhat.
However, Simmons said, the
contract has now been awarded,
and work already begun in the
south end of the city.
The next major cleanup wil
occur in February ard as.t ftdr
twp or three days in Avon Park
aldne.
Simmons warns that it took
years for the vegetation to grow
as wild as it has, and that it
won't be cleared out in one
visit.
Once the problem is brought
under control, he said, the rail-
road has agreed to a beefed up
maintenance schedule to pre-
vent those conditions from


reoccurring.
Operating portions of the
track will be serviced twice a
year, and non-operating or
vacant railroad property will be
serviced four times a year.
Simmons said he has a spe-
cial rapport with Luthi. "They
don't want to make enemies,
they want to do whatever they
can. They have shown a good
faith effort," he said, adding
he'd been told that additional
maintenance might be ordered
by CSX, providing their budget
allowed for it.
The city council, however,
made clear Monday night that it
would not rely on the good will
of strangers. City attorney
Gerald Buhr has been research-
ing case law regarding a rail-
road's responsibility to its prop-
erty.
At issue is whether federal
regulations, which favor the
railroads and were written on
their behalf years ago, super-
sede state statutes and munici-
pal ordinances.
Buhr said, in general "the
case law looks good," although
nothing specific applies. The
railroad may regulate the rail
,bed and the area immediately
,adjoining it for safety reasons,
but states and cities should be
able to regulate those areas fur-
ther away, especially if for pub-
lic health reasons.
Buhr is preparing a memo-
randum of law a narrative
that outlines existing case law
on any particular matter as a
precautionary measure. It
would be the first step to take,
should further action be need-

Sport Aviation Expo flies



into Sebring Airport


By MATT MURPHY
News-Sun
SEBRING The skies and
grounds around Sebring
Regional Airport will be full
this weekend, as the third annu-
al Sport Aviation Expo is com-
ing.
The expo, which begins
Thursday, will offer plenty of
opportunities for education and
fun. More than 60 exhibitors
will be set up for this year's
event, in addition to the 125-
130 aircraft that will be on dis-
play.
The event is designed to edu-
cate the public to the new cate-
gory of Light Sport Aircraft,
organizer Robert Wood said.
The category is fairly new one,
approved by the Federal
Aviation Administration just
three years ago.
Light Sport crafts have a top
speed of 135 miles per hour,
carry no more than two people,
have no retractable landing
gear, and must land at low
speeds. One advantage of the
category is that they are cheap-
er to fly than most other private
planes, Wood said. Flight train-
ing takes 20 hours, half as much
as the 40 required for a private
pilot's license.
Another advantage is that the
only medical coverage neces-
sary to fly the light sport planes
is a state license, instead of the
normal Class Three medical. A
driver's license is all that is nec-
essary to obtain the necessary
medical, Wood said.
The Light Sport category can
be advantageous to prospective
(or current) fliers both young
and old, Wood said.
"Young people who want to
fly can fly less expensively," he
said. "Older folks who want to
continue to fly after they think
their medical is in jeopardy can
also continue to fly with a dri-


very's license."
There are many kinds of
1glhit Sport. airciaft. and they-
will all be exhibited this week-
end, Wood said. The types on
display run the gamut from
powered parachutes to autogy-
ros, which are similar to heli-
copters except powered by
movement through the air
instead of motorized rotors.
Types of aircraft similar in size
to the new version of the Piper
Cub will also be shown, Wood
said.
For those interested in learn-
ing about flying the Light Sport
craft, the Experimental Aircraft
Association out of Oshkosh,
Wis., will be host free forums.
"They've helped a lot in getting
set up and doing the event,"
Wood said, and although the
group isn't a sponsor of the
event, it is "very active."
Besides the forums, compa-
nies will set up displays show-
casing equipment such as
radios, avionics, instruments
and Global Positioning Satellite
navigation systems, Wood said.
"If a person is so inclined,
they can come out, talk to a
dealer, and learn about the air-
plane at a forum," Wood said.
Demonstration rides in the var-
ious aircraft types will also be
offered, as will information on
how to obtain the Sport Pilot
Certificate.
,Besides being educational
and informative, the Aviation
Expo is also designed to benefit
Highlands County and the air-
port itself.
"Our original focus was to
develop an event that would
result in economic development
in the airport and the county,"
Wood said. To this end, the
Economic Development
Commission and airport staff,
including Executive Director
Mike Willingham, will speak at

Fire fighter

contract

ratified by

union, city

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK City coun-
cil members voted Monday
night to accept the contract rat-
ified by the city's firefighters in
late November.
It has taken four days less
than a year to successfully
complete the contracting
process, which began Jan. 12,
2006.
Pay issues were not on the
table at this time because the
police union negotiates in those
areas on behalf of itself and the
fire department.
Issues having to do with edu-
cation, seniority and unused
vacation and sick time were
discussed.
Of eight requests, three were
accepted all having to do
with education assistance or
promotion requirements.
According to Lt. Warren
-StpfresyWpt o, the Avon
Park Professional Fire Fighters,
Local 3132, negotiating was a
long ordeal. He was the union's
sole representative.
"I felt bruised and beat-up,"
he said, "by both sides."
One difficulty, West said,
was the way the negotiations
were structured.
City Manager C. B. Shirey
represented the city council,
but he lacked the authority to
make binding decisions. That
meant, West said, that the city
manager was in a position like
a dealer in a car dealership -
always leaving to check with
his superior.
"It really slows down the
process," he said.
West said that Fire Chief
Terry Feickert was added to the
negotiating team after talks had
begun, to explain the fire fight-
ers' position to city council
members meeting in executive
sessions.
The irony of having manage-
ment explain labor's position
isn't lost on West either.
"I'm just glad itbs over," he
said. "It's a compromise, but
that's the way life is."
The new contract will run
through Sept. 30, 2009.

Homeowners get lesson in auditing


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING As "bean
counters" taking "calculated
risks" to get the "biggest bang
for the buck," the Highlands
County Clerk of Courts' inter-
nal auditors have conducted rel-
atively few internal audits.
The Highlands County
Homeowners Association invit-
ed its members and the public
to Monday's meeting to learn
about the auditing process.
Senior director of business
services Bob Jamison and the
two auditors he supervises, dis-
cussed the differences between
internal and external audits,
their method for deciding which
departments are audited and the
source from which the clerk's
office derives its auditing
responsibility.
An internal audit of
Highlands County cash han-
dling procedures resulted in an
18-month audit of the
Highlands County Library
System and Heartland Library
Cooperative, which concluded
Nov. 28.
The report's publication
resulted in calls for county
administrator Carl Cool's resig-
nation on one hand, and allega-
tions of a political-driven audit
on the other.
"We have never involved the
sheriff's office or state attorney
in an internal audit before,"
Jamison said, answering a ques-
tion that suggested some
administrators and commis-
sioners, unhappy with the find-
ings, went after Jamison and
Brooker. "Never before was the
risk of fraud evident to this
level."
The clerk's office, authorized
by the Florida Constitution and
statutes, has been providing
internal audits to the Board of
County Commissioners for
almost eight years, Jamison
said, explaining that the last
"major" audit occurred six
years ago on the Emergency
Medical Services department.
External audits, required by
law and performed annually on
all five of the county's constitu-
tional offices, are done by a pri-
vate certified public accountant,
Jamison said.
External audits broadly
inspect an entity's financial
records.
In contrast, internal auditors
conduct a "very narrow
focused" examination of finan-
cial, operational and asset


records from "top to bottom,"
Jamison said.
The clerk's auditing team
consists of two people senior
internal auditor Mary Wilson
and internal auditor Heather
Woods (who was hired about a
year ago) with Jamison act-
ing as interim director.
Comparing their process to
an employee evaluation sheet,
Jamison said Wilson and Woods
use a variety of criteria to
decide which departments and
what functions must be audited.
Where there's greater risk of
harm to the taxpayer, a higher
priority is assigned, Jamison
said, whereas lower-risk depart-
ments handling smaller
amounts of money less fre-
quently might not qualify for an
audit.
In addition, staff size means
audits may take longer than
what professional standards call


for.
"What is a reasonable length
of time for a response to a find-
ing?" Jack Richie, association
chairman, asked.
Jamison, in previous inter-
views with the News-Sun, said
he published the library audit
final report in November fear-
ing that the county might never
respond to the outstanding find-
ings.
He said the industry standard
is to allow an agency two weeks
to respond.
About four months elapsed
between August when Jamison
issued the final of four batches
of findings to Cool's office to
when responses were submitted
Dec. 11.
"Once in a while it's OK to
give them another week,"
Jamison said, acknowledging
that the extra time benefits the
understaffed offices of the

* To achieve full flavor, remove cheese from the refrigerator
one hour before eating or serving. (But be sure not to leave
in unrefrigerated longer than two hours)

* Cheese right out of the refrigerator is easiest to cut or shred.

* When storing in the refrigerator, wrap cheese in airtight
plastic to minimize moisture loss.

* Eat soft cheeses (cottage or cream cheese) within two weeks.

POLICE
Continued from 1A
Resident Marlene Barger
thanked the council for "exer-
cising your fiduciary responsi-
bility. We appreciate the police
force in the town," Barger said,
"but at the same time, you
might want to review the budg-
et."
Barger suggested exploring
the idea of a special assessment
on each resident and business in
the town, instead of paying for
the police department strictly
with the millage rate.
"We need to take the emo-
tionalism out of this issue," she
said. "Careful review of the var-
ious options is required, and all
taxpayers ought to be encour-
aged to participate in the


process."
Contrasting Barger's point
was property owner Monty
Delaney, who said to Katsanis
and Town Attorney Bert Harris
(the two men who originated
the idea of dissolving the
department) holding the meet-
ing was "a poor choice."
"You two men don't have the
right to do this. If you two were
employed by me I would have
fired you when you walked into
the door," Delaney said to the
loud applause of the audience.
But not everyone was as
upset as Delaney about debat-
ing the issue.
Lonnie Wells, representing
the Lake Placid Growth
Management Committee, said
the group applauded the mayor
for bringing up the idea, and
encouraged further discussion


into the matter.
Echoing that point was resi-
dent Bobby Compton.
"I appreciate you having this
discussion," he said. "The
major focus I've had is the
budget. We need to look at all of
our expenses."
The last citizen to speak to
the issue was Bonnie Brantley,
who seemed to echo the senti-
ments of the audience.
"I think we've put our police
through a lot during the holi-
days," Bonnie Brantley, mother
of Vice Mayor Jeff Brantley,
said. "We know that we can
study this to death. We can have
meetings upon meetings. These
people don't deserve to be put
through that."
Each council member was
given the opportunity to speak
once it became clear that public


opinion was overwhelming
against disbanding the depart-
ment.
Bill Brantley, who made the
motion to keep the department,
said the idea would be "a
tremendous step backwards. 1
feel safe. I'm happy with the
level of service, and I think they
do a fantastic job."
Jim Waller echoed Brantley's
point but added annexation
could be a way to reduce the
taxes of the townspeople.
"This town, geographically
speaking, serves a lot of people
that don't pay taxes," Waller
said. "A small portion of people
are paying the way. The taxes in
the town are going to get worse
unless we annex and allow new
development."
Debra Worley said she was-
n't pleased that the idea was


brought up during the holidays.
"It pretty much ruined my
holiday," she said. "Our police
families were put under a bur-
den they shouldn't have been
put under."
She suggested talking to the
county about the budget of the
county schools, which she said
took up a large portion of the
townspeople's' county taxes.
"You need to go to the county
commission and make yourself
heard," she said to the crowd.
Charles Wilson said the issue
"comes down to annexation and
smart growth. I think there is
room in every department to
look at efficiencies," he said.
"Not just in the police depart-
ment, but every department."
He also said this discussion
should be taking place during


budget talks.
"Now is not the time for
this," he said. "The time is dur-
ing budget meetings. But
nobody shows up then. What
galls me the most is people sec-
ond-guessing after the fact."
After the vote, Katsanis apol-
ogized to the police department
and the town.
"The buck stops with the
mayor and I am totally respon-
sible for the meeting," he said.
"I guess I was wrong and I apol-
ogize for bringing it up.
"But I really do appreciate all
the people coming tonight.
What a lovely town we have
where we can have a meeting
like this."
Williams closed the discus-
sion by thanking the citizens
who came out and supported his
department.

to work and that's for people to
tell the truth," Todd said, when
the commissioners grew quiet
when asked how well they com-
municate with staff. "This is not
an opportunity to point fingers
at anybody."
The list of weaknesses
included lack of a continuation
plan for key leaders who leave
unexpectedly, lack of priorities,
comparing the value of services
rendered with their cost to tax-
payers, retaining the county's
youth, public transportation,
better use of government build-
ings, occupational licensing
oversight, addressing growth
via the budget, communication
from the board to county staff
and retaining professional staff
who are being enticed with job
offers elsewhere.
"I want to applaud you for
your openness," Todd told the
commissioners. "I haven't seen
anything here that can't be
fixed."
Threats to the board's accom-
plishment to its still-undefined
goals included concurrency (a
state-mandated requirement
that forces local governments to
show that it can meet the infra-

even nicer. There was no ten-
sion before or after the game, it
was just football camaraderie."
While Florida's victory obvi-
ously means a lot to fans and
alumni, it will also be benefi-
cial for area stores.
Robert Leonardo, owner of
The Sports Fan inside
Lakeshore Mall in Sebring,
went through three different
styles of Florida and Ohio State
T-shirts before the game was
even played.
But the shirts weren't the
only popular merchandise
options for Gator or Buckeye
fans. Leonardo was on his third
order of beads bearing the logo
of both teams, and hats were
"flying out."
Monday afternoon before the
game, Leonardo had two giant
boxes of hats sitting in the back
room of the store. One box con-
tained Florida national champi-
onship hats, the other Ohio
State ones. After the game,
Leonardo had to immediately
send back the box containing
the losing team's hats.
After the Florida champi-
onship hats were put on the
shelves, they sold very quickly.
Of the 30 that went on sale
Tuesday morning, only 10
remained in the afternoon.
The Sports Fan will be get-
ting plenty of Florida champi-
onship merchandise over the
next three days, Leonardo said.
And as expected, Florida fans
are waiting with bated
breath."The phones have been
ringing off the hook all day,"
Leonardo said Tuesday.
Leonardo expects T-shirts
celebrating Florida's back-to-
back basketball and football
national championships (a feat
that's never been accomplished
before) to be a big hit. T-shirts,
hats, magnets, flags, jackets
and other merchandise will all
be available before the week-
end.
And even before the game,
T-shirts for both participating
teams were flying off the
shelves.
Leonardo was down to his
last two Southeastern
Conference Championship
shirts Monday afternoon before
the game. The shirts were
marked down to half price to
clear the shelves for the nation-
al championship merchandise.


structure needs of growth), leg-
islative mandates in general,
youth flight, terrorism, main-
taining natural resources and
accountability to the voters.
The overall theme of oppor-
tunities that would assist the
county in its goals was "man-
aged growth" and learning from
mistakes the county's and
other's.
Commissioner Andrew
Jackson suggested looking into
privatization of some services
provided by the county.
Todd concluded the session
after about three hours, asking
the commissioners to return at 2
p.m. Tuesday at the Highlands
County Agri-Civic Center with
four to five suggested goals,
which they'll consolidate and
massage into a short list of spe-
cific goals.
"If I put the board in an
uneasy situation, I apologize for
that," Todd said early in the
meeting, explaining that it was
his idea to have the goal-setting
meeting at Blue Head Ranch in
Lake Placid.
Complaints from the public
coupled with a possible percep-
tion that that the county was
avoiding citizen input led chair-
man C. Guy Maxcy to move the
meeting to the Agri-Civic
Center.
Todd said an informal, non-
government setting would have
better facilitated the brain-
storming.
Doug Barnard, one of several
people who commented during


TEENS
Continued from 1A
level six.
One of the main reasons to
hold the public meeting,
Watters said, was to extend
open invitations to anyone
interested in seeing more of the
ranch and its programs.
"There is so much distrust of


the session, said Todd's restric-
tion of "finger pointing" pre-
vented him from making a spe-
cific recommendation.
"They appeared to have vio-
lated the Sunshine Law where
they limited what I can say,"
Barnard said during a phone
interview. "They wouldn't let
you, as they put it, 'point fin-
gers at somebody,' as far as
goals were concerned."
Given the opportunity,
Barnard would have asked the
board to seek Cool's resigna-
tion.
"He's living in the past,"
Barnard said of Cool's perform-
ance, which he cited as a reason
for the administrator to step
down. "The county administra-
tor is failing at his job. He's not
keeping up. But, they wouldn't
allow me to say any of this.
When is (Cool's) resignation
going to be on the agenda?"
Corine Burgess, county pub-
lic information officer, said the
board violated no laws.
"The board graciously
allowed the public to speak,"
Burgess said. "They didn't real-
ly have to do that."
The workshop was supposed
to be held as a retreat and, as a
narrowly-focused brainstorm-
ing session, public comment
wasn't required by law, she
said.
Burgess invited Barnard tI
bring his .concern ,before th,
board during its regularly-
scheduled meetings the first
four Tuesdays every month.

Maxcy echoed that sugges-
tion, and also suggested
Barnard submit his recommen-
dation in writing at Tuesday fol-
low-up goals meeting.
Barnard plans to file a crimi-
nal complaint with the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office.
Despite an admonishment to
not personalize the proceed-
ings, Barnard said he will
attend the next goal-setting
meeting and publicly request
that the commissioners, as one
of their goals, seek Cool's res-
ignation.
"I'm sure they would want to
know on what basis he thinks
the county administrator needs
to be let go," Maxcy said,
addressing a hypothetical situa-
tion in which a citizen requests
an administrator's dismissal
during a regular meeting.
At each meeting's conclu-
sion, the chairman opens the
floor for citizens not on the
agenda.
The goals-setting meeting is
a step in the right direction for
the board. Maxcy said.
"In order for us to be suc-
cessful, we need to have this
meeting every year," he said.
Questions arose early in the
meeting as to what types of
goals will be determined -
specific goals for the board or
county-level goals.
"I think there'll be goals
specifically for the. board,"
alxcy. Sadl "Whre want to.

GHC Motorsports revs up for expansion


Showroom, parts

department and staff

double in size
By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID Jeff and Kim
Cowell have relocated their business
GHC Motorsports which has allowed
them to more than doubled in size of
their showroom, parts department and
employees.
Jeff Cowell retired after 28 years as
a Pepperidge Farm cookie distributor


in Jacksonville. Then he and his wife
Kim moved to Lake Placid in 2002 and
opened GHC Motorsports. They've
recently moved to 614 U.S. 27 South
in Lake Placid.
"Our showroom was 1,800 square
feet and now is 4,000 square feet. Our
parts department was 750 square feet
and is now 2,000. We started out with
six employees and now have 17. We
are so very thankful for the support
we've received from Highlands
County," Kim Cowell said.
GHC carries Honda, Yamaha,
Polaris, BMX and Arctic Cat lines.
There are motorcycles, all-terrain vehi-


cles, scooters, and Honda personal
watercraft. This new location not only
offers more space, but much more of a
selection for customers.
"We've had a 94 percent increase in
our parts business. People are going to
like our new upgrade. It's brighter and
we have such better offerings. We are
very cost conscious and we'll beat any-
one else's deal at any time. Our busi-
ness is extremely competitive," Jeff
Cowell said.
Motorcycles come with a one-year
guarantee, with everything else having
a six-month warranty.


"It's unbelievable, but our cus-
tomers range in age from 18-85," Jeff
Cowell said.
GHC also sponsors the Ridin' Dirty
Race Team, which competes at differ-
ent tracks in the area. For example, at
the Bartow Motocross Track at 7 p.m.
every other Saturday there are cycles
and quads that race.
"My daughter Paige is 16 and holds
first place in the women's division.
She already has five corporate spon-
sors," Kim Cowell said.
Paige has been riding for 10 years
and racing for three. She lifts weights,


does push ups and sit ups to build her
stamina in order to race in two events
each time.
"You have to have endurance to
compete. I love racing. Sometimes I'm
the only girl, other times there may be
five others. It's exciting and danger-
ous. I wish more girls would get
involved," Paige Cowell said.
GHC Motorsports is at 614 U.S. 27
South (near Pizza Hut). Call 699-2453,
fax 699-2639 or e-mail GHC@htn.net.
Hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Monday through Friday and from 9
a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

News-Sun
SEBRING Amanda
Rodriguez, Ashley Richardson,
Lisa Taylor and Kayla Phillips,
members of Sebring High
School Dance Team, spent one
week in New York City where
they performed at Macy's
Thanksgiving Day Parade
together with dancers from all
over the United States.
Besides learning Macy's
Thanksgiving Parade routine,
the group toured New York City
and attended dance lessons with
famous choreographers.
One favorite activity was
shopping in Chinatown said
Phillips, while Rodriguez loved
Broadway musical "Tarzan," at
Radio City Music Hall. While
in New York, Richardson
enjoyed the Big Apple Tour and
Taylor was amazed with the
spectacular view from The
Empire State Building.

Passive
Exercise
Program opens
SEBRING Handicapped
Americans Love of Life
Organization's "Passive"
Exercise Program is open
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monday, Wednesday and
Friday.
This "passive" program is
beneficial to men and women
of all ages and open to every-
one in the community. The
program consists of six table-
top machines that do all the
movement for the person.
Through the various levels of
aided repetition and resist-
ance, the machines help a
person maintain or increase
their lean mass and reduce fat
and excess fluids, while
improving total body condi-
tioning. It not only tones and
firms, but promotes flexibili-
ty, improves posture and cir-
culation, and provides the
physical and mental benefits
of a regular exercise program
without the problems and
injuries associated with high-
ly vigorous programs. 'No
pulled muscles, no stiffness,
no soreness, just a whole new
attitude about exercise. In
addition, it does wonders to
relieve the stress of everyday
living.
HAILO is at 112 Medical
Center Avenue (behind
Highlands Regional Medical
Center in the medical com-
plex). Call the office for an
appointment: 385-1196.
The Tru-Tone Passive
Exercise Program is organ-
ized through HALLO, a non
profit organization for adults
with physical difficulties, pro-
moting wellness and provid-
ing support and opportunities
to reach personal goals and
object;' es.

- appointment is necessary.

pants can receive a flu vac-


cine with no out of pocket
expense (must present
Medicare card).
Pneumonia and tetanus
shots are also available at $20
each.
The Center for Disease
Control announced during the
week of Dec. 30 that influen-
za activity continued to
increase in the United States.
Florida, along with Alabama,
Georgia and Tennessee,
reported the highest number
of influenza cases. Although,
October or November is the
best time to get vaccinated,
getting vaccinated in
December or even later can
still be beneficial since most
influenza activity occurs in
January or later in most years.
Though it varies, flu season
can last as late as May.
In general, anyone who
wants to reduce the risk of
getting the flu should come in
and get a flu shot.

Breakthroughs made with
* This is part one on the break-
throughs in holistic health treatments.

Benfotiamine, a new name on the .
horizon for diabetic and high blood
sugar problems. Coming from pharma-
ceutical Europe for years recently,
there are possibilities that it will
enhance some of the problems we hear
about almost daily. Some of these are
blindness, stroke, endothelial dysfunc- N
tion and loss of a limb. WEL
It has become a very critical nutrient
to ward off the legal impact of sus- JOU
trained high blood sugar levels. Slows
down the progression of diabetic Ray
nerve, kidney and retinal damage. It
relieves the symptoms of diabetic neu-
ropathy.
Only Benfotiamine reduces elevated glucose
and alters the body's biochemical response to the
toxic breakdown products of excess sugar. AGEs
(advanced glycation end products) has been
implicated in the development and progression of
many disorders in diabetics. These include: car-
diovascular disease, diabetic neuropathy (nerve
disorders), retinopathy (vision), peripheral vascu-
lar disease, (affecting blood vessels of the
extremities and nephropathy (kidney disease).
Non-diabetics can benefit from Benfotiamine.
It is safe and well tolerated after years of use in
Europe. It has become a low cost dietary supple-
ment helping to offset the dangers of complica-


holistic health treatments
-...- tions of diabetes and high sugar prob-
lems.
Endothelial cells line the interior
blood vessels. They are damaged by
diabetes/high blood sugar; the result is
a condition called endothelial dysfunc-
tion and contributes to the initiation of
atherosclerosis. This impairs blood
flow to the extremities causing cramp-
ing pain while walking, cuts on the feet
[URPAL that fail to heal and ulcers and gan-
.LNESS grene of feet and legs that may necessi-
tate amputation.
IRNEY Benfotiamine may even reverse
most diabetic implications at least as a
Fisch first line defense for this serious dis-
ease.
This new product is one of many to
be written in a series of exciting non-
prescriptive and natural medicines.
This marvelous aid can be of tremendous help
to our youth whose percent of diabetic population
is increasing yearly at more than normal rate. If
not checked soon, their future will be in doubt
and we all will suffer.

Meaningful change

The special session of the Legislature on insurance
starts next week, and the insurance industry is fighting
back against attempts at major reform.
Take the not so veiled threats from Barney Bishop,
chief executive officer of the powerful Associated
Industries of Florida whose coalition includes insurers.
Bishop is warning of a "meltdown" and "financial
house of cards" that could further damage the state's
economy if Gov. Charlie Crist and lawmakers force
insurers to lower rates and underwrite more risk.
We've got news for Bishop.
There's going to be a meltdown, all right, but it's going
to come from voters if the lawmakers they sent to
Tallahassee don't come through with substantial reform
that eases the insurance crisis promptly.
And Crist should lead the way.
He made insurance reform the centerpiece of his cam-
paign, yet took nearly $800,000 in campaign contribu-
tions from the insurance lobby. Now he has to show his
true colors Is he for insurers, or for the people who
elected him?
State Sen. Bill Posey (R-Rockledge) also must place
the needs of citizens first as he steers reform proposals
through the Legislature in his role as chairman of the
Senate Banking and Insurance Committee.
Floridians are sick and tired of seeing their policies
canceled and rates go through the roof while insurers
sing a sad song yet make huge profits.
The time for reform is now, and voters expect nothing
less than meaningful change.


An editorial excerpt from Florida Today.


Even technology can't

ruin 'good old days'


I don't spend time worrying
about my children's futures.
I'm of the opinion that the
future will take care of itself,
and no matter how much time
you spend planning and worry-
ing, kids have a habit of doing
- something altogether different
with their lives than you
expected. So, it's not so much
what's coming that I worry
about, but what has passed.
I look back on my childhood
and remember fondly what I
consider "the good old days." It
was a quieter, simpler time. I
remember sitting at the beach
filling empty Pepsi bottles with
sand, and clustering around the
television op Sunday evenings
to watch the Disney Sunday
movie.
There were no cell phones,
no computers, no video games.
To me, those were "the good
old days" because we relied on
our imaginations, drew with
our hands, added in our heads
and our games were physically
demanding.
I can't help wondering what
our children will look back on
fondly when they have children
of their own. Will they even
have "good old days?"
I worry about this so much,
in fact, that I asked my daugh-
ter Jenny about it. Jenny is usu-
ally the unfortunate one to get
stuck with such questions, as
she doesn't have a driver's
license and has to rely on me if
she needs a ride. She's only 16,
so granted she hasn't had much
of a chance to reflect on her
"good old days" yet, but it was
worth a shot.
"Jenny, when you look back
on your early childhood, do you
remember it as a pleasant
time?"
"Huh?"
I tried to explain what I was
driving at, and she furrowed her
brow trying to understand what
it was that I wanted from her.
"What I mean is, when you
look back to when you were
younger, do remember it being
much different than it is now?
Do you remember it being bet-
ter ... or worse?"
"Well, I remember stupid
stuff, like the time me and Jill
found a big old cardboard box
and we were going to sleep in it
in the backyard, until we got
scared and came in the house."
"You weren't stupid, you
were little," I corrected.
"That's kind of what I mean
... it's an early memory. But, do
you have any fond memories?
Take Christmas for example.
Can you think back to a special
Christmas?"
"I can't think of one."


DIRT ROAD DIARIES

C.J. Mouser

"But you have to," I insisted.
"There must be one that stands
out more than the other."
"Mom!"
I was frustrating her.
"Jenny ... just think. What
about the year you guys got
Elvis for Christmas?"
"I remember the dog house
that was under the tree."
Now I was getting frustrated,
so I focused on my own special
recollections in the hopes of
jogging her memory.
"I remember one year," I
said, "we were really broke and
had no money for Christmas.
That's the year I made the stick
horse for your brother. I found a
pattern in a magazine. All it
took was a dowel rod and a few
scraps of fabric, and he loved
it."
"I don't remember that," she
informed me.
"That's also the year I found
a wooden doll house kit at a
garage sale. It was $2, so I
bought it without knowing if I
would ever be able to put it
together, but the project really
took off. I went to the craft
store and for a few cents apiece
I bought all these little wooden
accessories to go inside."
Jenny was frowning and I
had serious doubts if she
remembered that Christmas ...
she was only about 2 years old.
"One of you kids said some-
thing about never seeing snow
because we live in Florida, so I
took some stuffing from a pil-
low and lined the eaves of the
roof so that it looked like
snow."
I had given up on trying to
find Jenny's memories of her
"good old days," and was remi-
niscing for my own sake, so
when she spoke I was surprised.
"I remember a little wooden
bowl with three tiny wooden
eggs in it."
"That's right! It was on the
table!"
I was far too emotional over
this simple admission than was
warranted.
"You remember that?" I

A dosage of laughter is always good medicine


If you have not seen too
much of my face this past week,
perhaps you were one olf the
luckier ones. See, this past
week has consisted of me sleep-
ing and eating.
Yes, 1 know, it sounds much
like a newborn baby. I did what
was needed at the time. Once
you have your wisdom teeth
extracted, it is something that
must take place.
However, I feel as if I have
been disconnected from the out-
side world this past week. I had
almost expected things to alter
their form, turn on their axis a
bit. I literally looked around to
see if anything was misplaced
and not in its rightful spot.
There was nothing, absolutely
nothing expect for one thing.
My way of thinking had turned


New party will

be more of same
Editor:
Pertaining to the new politi-
cal party, "The American
Party," which some people are
proposing:
If you have the same corrupt
"good ol' boys" running it that
we have running the
Republican Party, or the
Democratic Party, then it is no
better than what we already
have.
No new taxes should be
imposed upon the people, with-
out the vote of the people.
"A Government of the
People, For the People and By
the People," that is what our
Constitution states. Shouldn't
the people have a say as to tax-
ation?
The government should be
held to a balanced budget and
not take on more projects, with-
out the approval of the people.
After all, it is the people who
have to pay for it.
A Government of the People,
For the People and By the
People, is the Democratic form
of government.

'Working class'

is under attack
Editor:
The real danger of global
corporations is to disrupt the
financial systems of all the
world's governments.
The failed trade relations of
all nations including the United
States is a direct result of glob-
al powers and the control they
have over all political systems,
including the United States
Congress.
They are guilty of "racket-
eering to suppress wages," a
criminal offense.
"Working class America"
and the working class of all
nations are under attack.
The American Chamber of
Commerce and Trade represen-
tatives of the United States are

being controlled by these glob-
al powers.
The sovereignty of all
nations are in great danger.
"They," the global powers,
are promoting illegal and guest
worker programs worldwide.
All those who stand to gain in
all nations are promoting this
illegal activity.
In 2006 elections, the people
voted to close our borders and
to send the illegals home, but
our global power controlled
Congress plans to do just the
opposite. We the people have
lost control of our destiny and
our government.
The Apathy of Peoples
worldwide have brought us all
to the brink of financial col-
lapse.
We the people ask that our
Congress does not reward those
who have violated our laws
with amnesty and to send all
illegals, regardless of race,
back to country of origin and to


MURPHY'S LAW

Lindsey Murphy

a bit on its axis.
Albert Camus, who won the
Nobel Peace Prize for literature,
once said, "In order to under-
stand the world, one has to turn
away from it on occasion."
After reading this, I had to let
out a little chuckle. Whether it
be right, or whether it may be


wrong, that was the way I felt
this past week.
It was almost as if I was tak-
ing a vacation from the entire
world in which I was living. It
allowed me time to actually re-
evaluate the way in which I was
thinking about life. These con-
clusions are quite general, and I
really do wish that they held
much more of an in-depth
response, but they do not.
So often we are more serious
than we need to be. Due to the
procedure, I was not able to
smile, much less laugh.
Therefore, I was stuck laughing
within myself and trying to do
some weird form of gestures
and a unique shrieking noise. I
am not going to lie, that was
probably the hardest thing to
have to do to want to be able


to express an emotion, but hav-
ing to withhold. It got me to
thinking about how often we
withhold this form of emotion,
just because our thoughts are
preoccupied on other "more
important" issues.
Needless to say, I have now
prescribed myself with an extra
dosage of laughter. It is taken in
small forms, but I have noticed
it has yielded great results. Not
only has it lifted my own spirits
quite a bit, it might have had a
reaction upon those around me.
After all, laughter is the best
medicine.

stop guest worker programs.
Theie is no crime more seri-
ous than job theft and identity
theft. Aiding and abetting is
also a criminal offense, either
by word or deed. Those indus-
tries and groups who aid and
abet should be brought to jus-
tice.
The American people are fed
up with corrupt politicians of
both parties.
This move by global power
worldwide, to take control, will
cause civil unrest worldwide.
It is happening as I write.
If the Democrats play the
amnesty card, they will lose the
2008 elections, the presidency,
the House and the Senate.
If they continue to do the
bidding of global corporations
and foreign nations, the work-
ing class will put out contracts
to destroy the political future of
all public servants who aid and
abet criminals.
Those who aid and abet
should not be able to hold any
public office in our nation.
The executive branch has
aided and abetted criminals
with impunity and dared states
and local governments to
enforce immigration laws.
This violates states' rights
and their sovereignty; we are,
after all, a nation of states.
How soon we forget the
great Civil War, caused by the
succession of states. It could
happen again. All Americans
who have been affected by the
"racketeering to suppress
wages" should bring lawsuits
against all corporations, both
large and small, who practice
this criminal offense.
Each illegal without a high
school education costs the
American taxpayer more than
$100,000 in his or her lifetime.


If America is to regain sover-
eignty, it must throw off the
yoke of global power.
Billie E. Jewett

Who exactly is

responsible?

Editor:
When it comes to the econo-
my and its effect on the middle
class there are diverse options
of perception. Those who have
been adversely affected by
those economic practices of the
corporate world these past 20
years point to corporations as
the culprits. Those who have
benefited blame the world mar-
ket, gas prices, etc., for the dev-
astation of the middle class.
Not surprisingly, the benefi-
ciaries blame the down and out
for their plight. "They need to
get a job to get out of their rut.
They shouldn't depend on the
government to bail them out."
Somehow, the well-off do not
connect the outsourcing of jobs
with layoffs and decreased
wages. They overlook the fact
that temps and part-time work-
ers do not receive benefits like
health care, or that people who
worked for 30 to 40 years to
earn a pension lost same
because corporations misman-
aged those funds for 30 to 40
years.
Surprisingly, even the ones
victimized by their companies
blame themselves and contem-
poraries for their plight. They
do not see the connection
between their layoffs and the
obscene profits "earned" from
those layoffs. They are aware
of welfare for the poor, but are
oblivious to corporate welfare,


'Wooing the press ... is an exercise roughly akin to

picnicking with a tiger You might enjoy the meal,

but the tiger always eats last.'
MAUREEN DOWD, syndicated columnist, 1994


although they might focus on
the gap between a worker's
$40,000 and a corporate execu-
tive's $400,000. (Of course,
today one would have to search
for an average $40,000 wage
earner.)
This writer is puzzled by
those who blindly follow lead-
ers who exploit their own, who
take advantage of their follow-
ers who rely on them to pursue
long established laws and
social ethics. It is tragic that
American economic policies
have been transformed into
global economic policies, that
generations of workers who
pursued the American Dream
to improve their stations of life
discovered that they are now
expendable, no better than
workers around the globe to be
exploited in the name of profit.
It is ironic that unemployed
skilled workers are told to
retrain themselves for other
trades, while their old skilled
jobs were outsourced offshore.
Reason? Their wages ate into
profits. Corporate welfare was
noted earlier. Please follow this
scenario.
A corporation bids on a fed-
eral project. It wins the bid,
outsources the jobs off shore,
takes the profits off shore to
avoid taxes, then bids on the
next federal project. It can
underbid the other corporations
which stayed in the country and
complied with all national
laws, etc. It does not take long
for the corporations that
remained true to the American
system to "get it," to join the
"movement," in order to sur-
vive.
Yes, people are different;
they come from diverse back-
grounds and form their philoso-
phies accordingly. As they pro-
ceed in life, most people modi-
fy their philosophies to adjust
to changes in society and cus-
toms. Some people are slow to
change or refuse to change
because they have held their
beliefs so dear. How does one
communicate with them? How
does one assess accountability
in this society?

Media doesn't
tell everything
Editor:
Journalism in previous years
was for informing the reader of
what is going on in the world.
Today journalism only prints
what their political views are of
the time.
But today's technology has
the internet that informs all
who wish to know what is
going on in the world to read
and decide for themself what
they want to believe.
But if one does not have a
computer one cannot find out.
what is fact and what is fiction
and has only the newsprint to
read. Therefore you can only
read what the newsprint view
wants you to believe what is
going on in the world.
The following information
of what is going on in the world
and verifiable facts on the
Department of Defense Web
site, www.defenselink.mil/.

1. 47 countries' have re-
established their embassies in

ly employs 1.2 million Iraqi

5. 25 Iraq students departed
for the United States in January
2005 for the re-established
Fulbright program.
6. The Iraqi Navy is opera-
tional ... they have five 100-
foot patrol crafts, 34 smaller
vessels and a naval infantry
regiment.
7. The Iraqi air force consists
of three operational squadrons,
which includes nine reconnais-
sance and three USC-130 trans-
port aircraft (under Iraqi opera-
tional control) which operates
day and night, and will soon
add 16 UH-1 helicopters and
four Bell Jets Rangers.
8. Iraq has a counter-terror-
ist unit and a commando battal-
ion.
9. Iraqi police service has
over 55,000 fully trained and
equipped police officers. Five
police academies that produce
more than 3,500 new officers
each eight weeks.
10. There are 1,100 building

11. There are 67 public clin-

Tragically, the lack of accen-
tuating the positive in Iraq
serves two purposes. It is
intended to undermine the
world's perception o the United
States thus minimizing conse-
quent support and it is intended
to discourage American citi-
zens.
Ask yourself the question,
not putting the facts of what is
happening in Iraq to show the
progress of Iraq, what does that
do to your freedom in the
United States? Does not our
constitution also cover truthful
facts of freedom of the press?

Historic Bok Sanctuary presents


20th International Carillon Festival


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE WALES -
Worldwide attention will focus
on Historic Bok Sanctuary dur-
ing the 20th International
Carillon Festival from Feb. 24-
March 4, which coincides with
spectacular spring bloom in the
gardens. Six internationally rec-
ognized carillonneurs repre-
senting the United States,
Netherlands and Canada will
perform during one of only two
international carillon festivals
annually in North America.
Housed in the majestic
"Singing Tower," the Sanctuary
carillon is considered one of the
finest in the world and is sur-
rounded by a spacious, open
landscape that offers an idyllic
setting for visitors to relax on
blankets, lawn chairs and
benches while enjoying the
concerts. With 60 bronze bells
ranging in weight from 16
pounds to nearly 12 tons, the
instrument was designed and
built by John Taylor
Bellfoundry, Ltd. of
Loughborough, England. The
inscription on the largest bell
says that Sanctuary founder
Edward W. Bok gave the caril-
lon as a tribute of affection to
his grandparents who were


lovers of beauty.
2007 International Carillon
Festival featured carillonneurs
are: Karel Keldermans,
Springfield, Ill.; Justin Ryan,
Denver, Colo.; Gordon Slater,
Ottawa, Canada; Boudewijn
Zwart, Netherlands; William
De Turk, Sanctuary carillon-
neur and Lee Cobb, Sanctuary
assistant carillonneur.
Visitors can view the per-
formances via a television mon-
itor located to the northwest of
the Japanese lantern. Following
each daily carillon concert at 1
and 3 p.m., visitors can meet
the carillonneur at the Tower's
east gate near the Information
Booth.
Other festival features in the
Education and Visitor Center


from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. will
include carillon exhibits and an
audiovisual presentation, "How
Bells are Cast and Tuned." On
March 2 at 7:30 p.m., a
Moonlight Concert performed
by Zwart will offer visitors a
chance enjoy the tranquility of
the Sanctuary as moonlight
streams through the tree
canopies.
Admission is $10 .for adults
and $3 for children ages 5 to 12.
Children under age 5 and mem-
bers of the Sanctuary are admit-
ted for free. Admission after 5
p.m. is $5 for adults and $1.50
for children ages 5 to 12. For

Garden club recognizes
AVON PARK The Avon Park Founders
Garden Club presented two awards to Avon Park
residents, for Christmas displays that were out of
the ordinary.
The walkway leading to the home of Mizael
and Angela Morales, 300 N. Lake Ave., was dec-
orated with a lighted arch and lined with candy
canes. Lighted deer and light "trees" were set at
various places in the yard. The roof-line of the
home was outlined in lights and a reindeer was
perched on top of the chimney of the two store
home. The effect was pleasing to look at without
- being overdone.

TOPS 487 start new year


residents with displays
An innovative display used icicle lights draped
along both sides of the driveway, at the home of
Benny Rivera, 2701 Cordova Ave.. to give the
appearance of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. On
top of a large, beautifully manicured tree, was
Santa Claus in his sleigh being pulled by two
reindeer one of them with a bright red nose.
When asked how he got the sleigh on top of the
tree, Rivera said he and his sons used a ladder
and climbed up through the tree. The overhang of
the home was also ringed with icicle lights. A
large Nativity scene was placed in a separate area
of the side yard.

SEBRING The first meet-
ing of the Wednesday morning
Take Off Pounds Sensibly FL
487 for 2007 took place at the
Whispering Pines Baptist
Church with 25 TOPS and
Keep Off Pounds Sensibly
members giving the pledges.
Because it was the first weigh-
in in the new year there are no
chapter gain or loss reports or
best loser for the week.
The December Division 2
winner receiving a charm was


Diana Baggett. and Ruth
Robertson received a charm for
perfect attendance in 2006.
Oh-ohs for this week are:
Portion control, bread and
candy of all kinds.
LaRue Shaffer removed a
wrapper from the attendance
box but found another wrapper.
The 10 cent contest of $2.20
was won by Ruth Scharf.
The question jar this week
was "What is Your New Years
Resolution?"


The club leader Leslie
Maschue challenged the chap-
ter to have a perfect weigh-in
(no gains) next week. Members
will work on it.
The program this week was
given by Scharf on "Ethnic
Cuisine and How to Reduce the
Calories it Contains." This is
good advice when anyone goes
out to eat so they will be able to
stay on the right track.
Hopefully this year will be a
happy and healthy one.

FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS


CAMP FLORIDA RESORT
Lynne Cadden
LAKE PLACID One of
the advantages to us having this
unseasonably warm winter this
year is that more and more peo-
ple are taking the opportunity to
participate in the water aerobics
at 10 a.m. Monday,
Wednesday and Fridays and
the water walking at 8:30 a.m.
Tuesday and Thursdays at the
pool. Come on down, get your
feet wet, exercise and also have
a good time.
Doran and Marilyn Quigg
served as hosts last Thursday
for the Conversational Bible
Study Group in Camp Florida.
The goal of the group is to
encourage others in the discus-
sion of biblical principals. An
aid utilized by group is
"Though the Bible" with Les
Feldick. Currently they are
working with Book 20 on
Romans. The study books can
be viewed online at www.les-
feldick.org.
The group involves itself
with other altruistic endeavors
such as the one held last month
at the annual memorial service.
In attendance, were more than
110 people who participated as
balloons were released for each
person from the resort who
passed away during our last
season. Songs of praise and
hope were sung and prayers
were offered for their friends
and families. If you would like
to join the group, they meet at 9
a.m. Thursday at the club-
house.
Several of the upcoming park
activities normally held at the
clubhouse may have to be post-
poned or their located changed,
due the clubhouse not being
complete at this time. Consult
the bulletin boards for updates
concerning activities.
On tap this week is a long
time favorite the chili supper
will be at 5 p.m. today. The chili
is being prepared by the loving
hands of our Ladies Circle of
Friends and is certain to tanta-
lize the taste buds.
The Red Hat Society, Sassy
Lassies will be hosting the
author of "Tropical Warnings,"
April Starr, who will be doing a
book signing at the luncheon
held at Camp Florida. The
luncheon will be at noon
Saturday, Jan. 13.
The annual pig roast will be
at 5 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 14. Doug
Cain will be here once again
providing our entertainment for
the evening.
Have you ever wanted to try
your hand dabbling in oil paint-
ing? Our own Elly will be
teaching a class at 9 a.m.
Monday, Jan. 15. This class is


for the beginner, as well as all
budding Picasso's. Everything
you need to complete this paint-
ing is furnished as part of the
class. You can view the com-
pleted project at the office.
Rounding out this week at 7
p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 16, from

Opry is singer/musician Robert

nity sure looked magical with
all the luminaries and decora-
tions that were lit up, and of

SEBRING Happy New

filling up rather quickly these
days, with returnees arriving

people from all over this land
and to welcome them in to our

good turnout for lunch.

tice, we will be starting choir

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
Jan. 10, 2002: Kortney
Stivender netted 16 points
as the No. 9-ranked Lady
Streaks held off Avon Park,
48-41. The Red Devils,
behind 14 points from
Charmise Ishmael and 13
from Krishna Stewart,
closed to within 36-35
early in the fourth quarter.
But Heather Wolfe sank
two buckets and Sebring
went 6-of-8 from the foul
line down the stretch to
seal the win.
25 Years Ago
Jan. 9, 1982: Last-minute
entry Auburndale surprised
the field by scoring 152
points and taking down co-
favorites Sebring, Venice
and Haines City in the
Sebring Wrestling
Invitational. Buzz

Shaun Breeden all took
first-place finishes in their
respective weight divisions
for Sebring.

Boys Basketball

Hardee pushes


past Sebring
By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
Sports Writer
SEBRING The Blue Streaks held their
own, for a half at least, but it was the visiting
Hardee Wildcats who took control late for a
58-50 win at Sebring Tuesday night in District
10-4A action.
"This was a tough one," head coach
Princeton Harris said after the
game. "We missed 10 free
,- a., throws, and that's a big part of the
-' '" difference right there."
The difference in the first half,
however, was the strong defense
and rebounding by the host Blue
Streaks and the early scoring of
Kyle Hoffner.
A layup off an inbounds pass started the
scoring for Sebring and Hoffner extended the
early lead with a 3-pointer.

This 'Yankee' glad

to be in Florida
Hello, Highlands County. I wanted to take
a moment to introduce myself as your
newest sports writer.
First, I know it may seem hard to believe,
considering how it's spelled, but my last
name is pronounced
"hay-nee." Which
almost kind of sounds
like "Yankee," what you
will be likely calling
this northerner, anyway. .
I understand that is
part of the lingo and all,
but I'm from Chicago,
and a lifelong Cubs fan,
so anything that seems THE DISH
to have a New York
connection doesn't feel Dan Hoehne
too good.
But yes, I am a life-
long, long-suffering Cubs fan, which means
I have to have a sarcastic sensibility to
remain sane, and that sense of humor will
often come through in my writing as I will

52nd Annual Harder Hall Women's Invitational



Wire-to-wire for Wigger


Shoots 71 in final

round to win by 3

By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING Coming into Sunday's
final round of the 52nd Harder Hall
Women's Invitational with a five-shot lead,
Leah Wigger would have had to self-
destruct in order to not wrap up a wire-to-
wire victory.
After a bogey on the opening hole -
coupled with a birdie from second-place
Candace Schepperle shrank that lead to
three shots, that possibility may have
slipped into the back of some people's
minds.
Wigger didn't see it that way, however.
"I knew there were plenty of holes left
and I could get it back," she said. "I think
that was just nerves, pulling the shot left
and leaving the chip shot short."
Turns out she got it back and then some,
using back-to-back birdies on Nos. 4 and 5
to swell her lead back to six strokes, then
coming home with 13 straight pars to finish
at 8-under 280 for a three-shot win over
Schepperle.
While it may have seemed like Wigger
was protecting her lead, the University of
Virginia standout said she really wasn't.
"I wanted to build the lead. I was trying
to get birdies," she said. "I could have
given myself some better birdie opportuni-
ties on the back side."
Still, the string of pars over the last
baker's dozen of holes was plenty.
Schepperle, who also played a solid round
to finish with a 3-under 69, got the lead
down to five with a birdie on the eighth
hole, but couldn't card a red number again
until the 16th hole.
That put her four down heading into the
par-5 17th, when she missed an eagle putt

and tapped in for her second birdie.
Schepperle needed that eagle putt to fall,
however, and could have used some help
from Wigger in order to have a chance for a
final-hole miracle.
Wigger wasn't in a giving mood, howev-
er, finding the green in regulation and tap-
ping in for par, then making a par on the
final hole to seal the win.
Candace played great," Wigger said. "I
was a little worried, but I knew if I hung in
there and tried to think about me, my target
and the course, I'd be fine."


Wigger said she was honored to be part
of a list of Harder Hall winners that
includes several notable LPGA stars.
"It feels great to know my name will be
on that board (in the clubhouse) forever,"
she said.
Schepperle finished at 5-under (283) for
the four-day tournament, followed by
Jacqui Concolino in third at 290, Sally
Watson in fourth at 291 and Megan Grehan
in fifth with 293.
Danielle Hickox won the Ben Roman
division with a 319.

High School Basketball

Eagles sweep Vanguard


News-Sun
LAKE WALES -The
Walker Memorial Eagles
swept the Vanguard Panthers
in boys and girls basketball
Monday night.
In the girls game, Walker's
Jessica Ewing led all scorers
with 17 points. The junior
scored 11 points in the first
quarter as the Eagles jumped
out to a 21-4 lead. Teammate
Blair Walz had nine points.


HARDEE
Continued from 1D
Louis and Mark St. Fort
helped the visitors keep things
close, but a deuce from T.J.
Williams and two free throws
from Brandon Diaz-Ascanti
closed the first quarter and put
the Streaks up 15-12.
Hoffner started the scoring
again in the second on a bank
shot and Diaz-Ascanti drove
for a score to extend the lead,
but the Wildcats fought right
back to close the gap.
The Streaks (8-11 overall,
1-6 in the district) kept bend-
ing but not breaking, as they
held off Hardee's attempts to
take the lead with A.C.
Wilson and Clifton Fennell
each working inside for a
hoop to keep a three-point
lead at the half.
Hoffner's 3-pointer early in
the third seemed to mark a
continuance of the momen-
tum of the game, pushing
Sebring out to a 28-23 lead
when, in fact, it was the start
of the downfall for the hosts.
Louis and St. Fort began to
assert themselves inside,
pushing Hardee on a 10-3 run
to close the third with a 38-33
lead.
The fourth quarter saw the
same scenario as the first half


SURGE

"Our team did really well
this season," Garza said.
"This is my dream team. I'm
going to miss playing with
them."
Sebring, now 3-9-1, was
outshot 18-2 for the match,
but had a couple quality scor-


The Walker boys team had
three players in double fig-
ures: Chris Tangunan had 17
points, Brad Walz had 12 and
Gabriel Carrion had 10.
Sean Martinez led the
Eagles with eight rebounds
and Tangunan had seven.
The Lady Eagles improved
their record to 7-3 overall and
4-3 in the district. The boys
team has a record of 6-5 over-
all and 5-3 in the district.


play out, only with the
Wildcats now holding the
lead despite numerous pushes
by the Streaks.
An 8-3 run by Hardee
extended the lead, and with
the scene changing to a
parade to the free-throw line
for both teams, Sebring just
couldn't close the gap.
"We controlled their big
guys better than we did the
last time we saw them, and
we controlled the ball well
with only 10 turnovers,"
Harris said. "But we didn't
box out too well and we did-
n't hit the boards as well as as
we could
"We shot 24 percent on our
two-point attempts," he con-
tinued, noting an odd discrep-
ancy, "and we hit 5-of-6 3-
pointers. But that's 31 percent
overall in shooting, and with
that and the rebounding,
you're going to be fighting a
losing battle."
St. Fort led all scorers with
18 on the night, with Jermaine
King adding 17 and Louis 13
for the Wildcats.
Hoffner took team honors
for the Streaks with 16, while
A.C. Wilson tallied nine and
Sam Robinson and Diaz-
Ascanti adding six apiece.
In the JV game, Sebring
beat Hardee 66-46.


ing opportunities in the first
half. Steward made a rolling
save and Kaylee Hwang bare-
ly missed an empty-net
opportunity when the ball
sailed just a bit high.
The Lady Streaks were not
able to muster much more
offense, but the Dragons
could not seem to capitalize
on drives against the strong
Sebring defense.


HOEHNE
Continued from 1D
look to not only inform you of
the games of our area youth,
but give you something fun
and enjoyable to read.
Back in 1996, when I first
got my start in this business, I
was a free-lance sportswriter
with the Daily Herald in
Chicago covering high school
athletics.
I had figured that covering
this level of sports was a nec-
essary step I needed to take on
my "way up the ladder" to
being able to cover the profes-
sionals.
But one night, while cover-
ing a girls basketball game, I
was waiting outside the locker
room to conduct my postgame
interviews when a writer from
a rival paper was there and we
happened into conversation.
He had been the baseball
beat writer for the Baltimore
Sun, covering the Orioles, but
was now back on the high
school beat in suburban
Chicago.
"What happened that you're
now doing what I'm just start-
ing out with?" I asked him.
He replied that he had just
gotten sick of covering the pro-
fessional games the busi-
ness side of things, the egos,
the issues. It simply was no
longer enjoyable for him; the
ideals of sports for him had
become lost.
He then said (and I've
remembered this ever since)
that "the last true vestige of
athletics in it's purest form is
high school sports."
I realized how right he was
as when I took my career to
the Northwoods of Wisconsin,
where I worked as a one-man
sports department.
Being my own editor, pho-
tographer, columnist, reporter,
etc., I covered one high school
of about 1,000 students and
another with an enrollment of


around 80."
The vast majority of those
student-athletes had no aspira-
tions, or delusions, of becom-
ing the next great professional.
They were just playing their
respective sports because of
the love they had for the
games.
Some had that extra ability,
skill and drive to earn scholar-
ships, as is the case in every
area of the country, and those
occasions of great talent defi-
nitely added to the excitement
for friends, fans and sports
writers alike.
But to me, it was just as
exciting to watch and cover all
those student-athletes who just
loved to play and give their
best efforts to try to win their
next game, match or meet.
After two years and two
winters in the Northwoods,
however, I went seeking the
next step in my career.
When this northerner saw
the opportunity to take that
next step by coming to the
heart of Florida, I hurriedly


brushed the snow off my car,
packed it up and headed out on
the nearest highway heading
south.
It is quite nice to be able to
go outside in short sleeves
sometime before June and to
not even have to think about
doing any snow shoveling ...
ever.
Climate aside, though, I am
just anxious to see and cover a
whole new set of student-ath-
letes, coaches and schools.
My aim is to get as many
teams and names mentioned in
our pages as I can, but with


experience I realize I can only
do so much. It is a collabora-
tive effort.
With the help of coaches and
others involved in the pro-
grams keeping me informed of
game results and faxing in stat
sheets, I can help provide more
detailed and widespread cover-
age.
And hopefully, I'll do such a
good job that you won't dislike
me for being a "Yankee," but
just pity me for being a Cubs
fan.
