SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Florida Highway Patrol troopers on motorcycles surround the hearse as it leads a miles long procession T'esday afternoon to take Sgt. Nicholas G. Sottile to his final resting
place. Sottile was killed Friday afternoon after a routine traffic stop. Joshua Altersberger, 19, has been charged with first-degree murder in his death. Northbound traffic on U.S.
27 was stopped during the funeral procession. The only sound was that of the motorcade's engines.




County mourns fallen hero


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Working together,
Florida.Highway Patrol Sgt. Nicholas
Sottile's two families his wife, chil-
dren, father and siblings, and the Florida
Highway Patrol created a touching
farewell service that celebrated his life
Tuesday at Restoration Center of
Highlands.
Sottile was shot and killed Friday
afternoon, during a traffic stop on U.S.
27, just north of Lake Placid.
The manner of his death shot down
during a routine traffic stop, allegedly by
a teen who later boasted about his actions
on his personal MySpace.com Web page
- was so shocking and violent it drew
the attention of the state and nation.
Sottile's memorial service quickly
became a public event.
Hundreds of troopers, sheriff's
deputies and police officers gathered to
pay tribute. Governor Charlie Crist came
in person to pay condolences and give
thanks. Mass media markets picked up
the story so crews set up cameras and
helicopters circled overhead.
More than 1,000 people gathered to
pay respects to a man well known and
loved in his Lake Placid community. It
was a crowd so large the sanctuary was
filled, with extra rows of people standing
two and three deep around the large
room. Even more people gathered out-
side to listen to the service over loud
speakers.
But despite all that, the memorial serv-

ice was down home and personal an
authentic farewell for a man character-
ized as an authentic Christian.
All day the silence was noticeable.
When talking, whispers only were used.
But it went further than that, people were
careful of one another and patient while
waiting long periods of time.
Outside, in spite of the hundreds gath-
ered, it was so quiet bird songs and a


barking dog could be heard. And the
occasional metallic click of the taps on
honor guard's shoes could be heard as
they walked by.
Inside a gentle hum of respectful voic-
es rose and fell, until the service began.
The focus was entirely on the fallen
trooper; his story told by people who

Sottile's 'last

News-Sun
SEBRING An eagle soared over
Restoration Church of the Highlands
as Sgt. Nicholas "Nick" Sottile's cas-
ket was transferred to the hearse
Tuesday afternoon.
Almost two hours later, 15 Florida
Highway Patrol helicopters flew a
"missing man"
formation over
Oak Hill
Cemetery in Lake
Placid as those
who loved,
respected and
knew the career
trooper paid their
final respects.
Sottile's "last SOTISLE
call" was
announced at 4:43
p.m. Tuesday on an FHP frequency.
No. 333, his identification number,
was called three times before he was
declared "10-7," or out of service, and
cleared from duty.
About 1,000 people filled the
church for Sottile's service. Several
hundred law enforcement, public
safety, fire and rescue vehicles filled

A MySpace.com message sent by 'Big Josh' who reportedly is Joshua Lee Altersberger, 18, of Sebring,
has a link to news coverage of Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Nicholas 'Nick' Sottile's shooting death
Friday. The message, sent approximately 4 1/2 hours after the incident, has in its subject line, 'hahaha-
hahaha ......... (expletive deleted) the police.' The asterisks were placed by the 'News-Sun' through
PhotoShop in place of actual letters. Altersberger was arrested Saturday morning for allegedly killing
Sottile.

Sebring and bragged, according
to the friend who drove him

A Lake Placid resident born
and raised in Highlands County,
Sottile was just shy of his 24th
anniversary with the patrol, and
was just more than a year away
from retirement when he was
gunned down during a traffic
stop on U.S. 27.
"He was going around,
'Have you seen the news? That

in brief


Pedestrian dies

from injuries
LAKE PLACID The
75-year-old Lake Placid man
struck by a car Thursday in a
grocery store parking lot
died.
The Lake Placid Police
Department confirmed that
Grady Billingsley died, but
details weren't immediately
available.
Orval Ewing, 56, of
Venus, was initially cited for
failure to yield to a pedestri-
an, LPPD Officer Heather
Mulligan said Thursday.

Fire victim

gets help
LAKE PLACID The
American Red Cross
Highlands County Service
Center mobilized Monday to
help the victim of a house
fire on Vision Street in Lake
Placid.
Volunteers and staff pro-
vided the man living at the
house with assistance for
temporary shelter and to get
clothing, shoes, and gro-
ceries. They also gave him a
comfort (toiletries) kit, land-
lord verification of the fire,
and referral to Alpha and
Omega Crisis Center in Lake
Placid and The Salvation
Army in Sebring.
American Red Cross dis-
aster assistance is free, made
possible by donations from
the American people to the
national American Red
Cross and its local chapters.
For details, contact the local
American Red Cross.
City calls
meeting for

Thursday
AVON PARK A spe-
cial meeting of the Avon
Park City Council has been
called for 6 p.m. Thursday at
the city council chambers at
123 E. Pine St.
The council will discuss
the future of the Boys &
Girls Club in Avon Park,
including finding a location
and sources of support.

Audit hearing

postponed
SEBRING Due to a
scheduling conflict, the
library audit public hearing
this morning has been post-
poned.
Commissioner Andrew
Jackson, a Sebring attorney,
has a deposition scheduled
and would have missed the
morning meeting,
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart said.
"I thought it was impor-
tant enough that all the com-
missioners be there,"
Stewart said, explaining she
urged the board to postpone
the meeting.
So, the commissioners
will convene the hearing at 9
a.m., then recess until noon
when Jackson said he'd be
able to be there.


COKKlU I ION

In the Sunday News-Sun's
"Manhunt over" story, the last
paragraph should have been:
Elizabeth Sottile is Sebring
Police Cmdr. Steve Carr's sis-
ter.
The correct spelling of the
first-degree murder suspect's
name is Joshua Lee


Altersberger.

In Sunday's story about
Donna Dewberry Luncheon it
was incorrectly stated that
Dewberry will be providing the
T-shirts for the painting ses-
sion. She is providing the paint,
not T-shirts. The luncheon is at
1 p.m. Saturday at Knights of
Columbus Hall in Sebring. For
tickets, call 273-1339.
The News-Sun regrets the
errors and is happy to the
record straight.


Violent past preceded trooper's shooting


Murder suspect
allegedly attacked
drug-addicted mom

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
Newls-Sun
LAKE PLACID The man
accused of killing Florida
Highway Patrol Sgt. Nicholas
Sottile may have signaled his
intent before the shooting,
according to law enforcement
officers.
The shooting suspect has a
rap sheet that includes at least
one other violent episode.
Joshua Lee Altersberger, 19,
allegedly shot 48-year-old
Sottile in the neck Friday after-
noon when the trooper pulled
him over for reckless driving on
U.S. 27 north near Cloverleaf
Road, FHP director Col.
Christopher A. Knight said
Saturday.
Sottile was shot at 3:22 p.m.
and died at 4:51 p.m. at Florida
Hospital Lake Placid.
According to the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement, three witnesses
provided key information that
resulted in Altersberger's arrest
Saturday.
Altersberger is being held
without bond for first-degree
murder.
Quintin Kinder, of
Bainbridge, Ga., the passenger
in the 2003 Toyota Camry driv-
en by Altersberger, ran from the
car and into a grove before the
shooting, according to an
unnamed witness.
The witness, a tractor trailer
driver who was cut off by
Altersberger, pulled up behind
Sottile to report the erratic driv-

the field south of the church.
Standing room spilled out
into the foyer and side hall-
ways, and those who couldn't
fit there were able to listen to
the hour-long service outside
on loudspeakers.
"This will be my, I try not to
keep count, fourth one," said
Trooper Tim Burtcher, who
served in the Fort Myers
District of Troop F
Burtcher didn't report direct-
ly to Sottile, a Troop F supervi-
sor, but on occasion worked
with him when Sottile was cov-
ering for another sergeant.
"He was definitely the guy
that if I had a question, he'd be
the guy who would know,"
Burtcher said, as he directed a
seemingly unending flow of
police cars into place for the
procession that would follow
the service.
He became an auxiliary
trooper in 1991, working in a
reserve capacity without pay,
then went full time in 2004.
"I wanted to do this full
time," Burtcher said. "I enjoyed
it so much doing it for free."
He admitted to taking pause
when a fellow officer dies in the
line of duty to re-evaluate his
own performance.
Even in the noon heat of a
Central Florida winter, Burtcher
wore his body armor while
directing law enforcement traf-
fic.
"I have to drive home,"


ing, according to the affidavit,
but was ordered back into his
cab.
"Sottile approached the vehi-
cle and ordered the driver to
place his hands on the steering
wheel," Florida Department of
Law Enforcement Special
Agent Tommy Ray said in his
affidavit summary of his inter-
view with the truck driver.
"Sottile leaned into the driver
window when the driver pro-
duced a silver handgun, possi-
bly a .22 or .32 caliber and fired
one round into Sottile's neck
area."
Sapp said the officer col-
lapsed and, 15 seconds later,
Altersberger allegedly fired the
gun again.
The affidavit doesn't indicate
whether the shot was directed at
Sottile.
After the shooting,
Altersberger fled in the Camry
and allegedly went to his girl-
friend's Sebring home to hide
the car.
"Altersberger stated that he
just killed a police officer by
shooting him in the neck,"
FDLE Special Agent Kevin
Sapp said of his interview with
the unnamed woman.
She allegedly told Sapp that
she didn't believe Altersberger,
but did see a silver semi-auto-
matic handgun with wood grips
on the front seat.
With his girlfriend present,
Altersberger wiped the car's
interior with a T-shirt, removed
the gun and left the Camry in an
orange grove across the street
from the woman's home.
She went home and
Altersberger left also, though
Sapp doesn't indicate where the


Burtcher said. "I could come up
on something I'm not wanting
or ready for, but I have to be
ready for anything."
Sottile wasn't wearing his
body armor Friday when he was
shot and killed by a Sebring
man during a traffic stop.
But, the vest may have had
little value if the State Medical
Examiner confirms that Sottile
was shot in the neck.
Burtcher went through the
academy with Sottile's son,
Trooper Nicholas Sottile II.
At the church service's con-
clusion, the uniformed officers
filed out and formed a "Wall of
Honor" as other family, friends
and guests departed.
Lt. Larry Coggins, a Troop
C-based public information
officer for the FHP, said Florida
was well represented with
municipal, county and state
agencies.
Officers from California,
New Mexico, New Jersey and
Mississippi were spotted among
the blue, green, white and gray
uniforms that colored
Restoration's parking lot.
Col. Christopher A. Knight,
FHP director, escorted
Elizabeth Sottile from the
church to a red troop sedan. Her
children Heather and Nicholas
Sottile II climbed into the back
seat as they waited for their
husband and father to be carried
out.
Like the officers who evel-
oped their badges with a black
band to honor a fallen brother,
Sottile II's badge was covered
too.
But, his band was for his fall-

murder suspect went.
"(She) later saw the shooting
of Trooper Sollile on the six o'
clock news." he said, "and then
reported it to her mother."
Altersberger was located
about 1 a.m. when SWAT mem-
bers found him in his Sebring
residence, and arrested him sev-
eral hours later.
The suspect weapon was
recovered, but officials
Saturday didn't disclose when
or where.

the Lykes
grove.
Kinder, the passenger, said
Altersberger allegedly contin-
ued driving north on U.S. 27 for
a couple minutes before pulling
over for Sottile.
"During this two-minute time
period, Altersberger stated that
he was going to shoot the troop-
er," Pollard said in the affidavit.
Knowing that Altersberger
keeps a gun in the driver's door
panel, Kinder said he believed
Altersberger.
"Fearing that Altersberger
was going to shoot the trooper,
(Kinder) exited Altersberger's
car from the passenger side
door and ran on foot ... into a
Lykes Brothers citrus grove,"
Pollard said.
Kinder's $10.000 bond for
trespassing was revoked


Sunday when the men made
their first appearances in video
teleconference before Polk
County Judge Mary Green.
Though he's reported to be
from Georgia, a Lawton teenag-
er who knows both suspects
said Kinder lived in the same
neighborhood as Altersberger.
According to Lisa McGehee,
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office chief of staff, Kinder has
no prior record in the county.
Altersberger, however, was
arrested twice, according to
juvenile booking reports
McGehee released.
In 2003, he was arrested for
aggravated assault. On his 16th
birthday the next year, he was
arrested on two counts of drug
possession within 1,000 feet of
a school.
"Defendant did willfully and
intentionally threaten to injure
the victim while holding a
knife," Avon Park Police
Officer J. Bratten said in an
arrest narrative.
The victim was Rosalie
Altersberger, Joshua
Altersberger's mother.
"Defendant advises he has
trouble controlling his anger,"
Bratten said. "When he picked
up the knife he realized it was
wrong and dropped it."
Altersberger was arrested for
the knife attack on his mother.
His mother played a role in
the second arrest too, according
to a HCSO report.
Altersberger and his mother
were living at 3801 Youth Care
Lane in Sebring on Nov. 5,
2004, when Department of
Corrections Probation and
Parole officers assisted the
HCSO Special Operations


Division during a warrantless
search.
Anonymous complaints of
drug use and sales was the
impetus for the search, HCSO
Det. Jamie Davidson said in the
narrative.
Living with them was
Altersberger's mother's
boyfriend, Armando Rivera,
who was on supervised proba-
tion for an armed robbery con-
viction, Davidson said.
In the house, the officers
allegedly found two pistols,
methamphetamine, marijuana
and powder cocaine.
The narcotics appeared to be
packaged for street sales, the
officer noted in his report.
"Rosalie Altersberger
acknowledged that she occa-
sionally uses cocaine and has a
small drug abuse problem,"
Davidson said. "She believes
she can stop using the drugs at
anytime."
During the search, Rivera
and Rosalie Altersberger were
detained but Joshua
Altersberger wasn't around.
When he arrived,
Investigator Gonzalez (no first
name was provided in the docu-
ment) contacted Altersberger
and searched him.
Gonzalez allegedly found 8.3
grams of cocaine "packaged in
small zip-lock bags for street-
level resale" and 20.5 grams of
marijuana.
"Joshua spontaneously stated
he had stolen the cannabis and
cocaine from Rivera,"
Davidson said.
Following the second arrest,
Joshua Altersberger was taken
to the Juvenile Assessment
Center in Bartow.

sive care unit.

HERO
Continued from 1A
knew and loved him. They kept
it simple and spoke from the
heart.
Three men between them
wove the tale of Sottile's life,
each warning listeners that with
all they could say, too much
was still left out. He was just
too big a man, they said, too full
of life, to be described in words
alone.
Their voices sometimes
broke, and sometimes were
strong. There were tears, but
laughter as well, and sighs of
relief. They made it clear that
Sottile, seemingly simple a


man of his word, doing his best
for his loved ones, fulfilling his
responsibilities with integrity
- was hugely complex. He was
a man of compassion, good
humor and spiritual depth.
He was a son, husband,
father and brother; a peace offi-
cer; a cook, a hunter, a comic, a
friend. He was first of all a man
of God.
Over and over the men who
spoke, told Sottile's wife
Elizabeth, and his daughter
Heather, and his son Nicholas,
how much he had loved them,
how proud he had been. To his
father Phil, brothers and sister,
they spoke of his devotion to
them.
Colonel Christopher A.


Knight, director of the Florida
Highway Patrol, and Sgt.
Wesley Daum, who worked
closely with Sottile, described a
man proud to be called a troop-
er's trooper. The kind of troop-
er, they both said, that up and
coming troopers should emu-
late.
Knight described how Sottile
had stopped and stayed with a
stranded motorist for more than
two hours late one night, when
he had been going off duty and
on his way home.
His co-workers called him
Sgt. Evil, Daum said. That's
because Sottile held high stan-
dards and made new recruits
fulfill them. Do it right, Daum
said, was Sottile's constant

refrain, adding that he
embraced the nickname.
He had a fear of heights,
Knight said, that made climbing
trees while hunting difficult for
him.
Fear of heights is an under-
statement, Daum said in his
turn. He told a story of how
Sottile tried using a climbing
tree stand while hunting deer
one afternoon. Sottile entered
the stand, Daum said, and
looked around exclaiming, "Oh
my, I can see forever from
here."
"We were eye to eye at the
time," Daum said to laughter,
because Sottile hadn't started
climbing at all.
It took him about a half an
hour to actually gain any height,
Daum went on, at which point a
cloudburst moved through,
soaking Sottile as he couldn't
move fast enough to get out of
the rain. Worse, Daum said, he
and Sottile's son Nicholas had
seen the water coming and
ducked into the truck's cab to
stay nice and dry.
Nick Sottile's sense of humor
and friendly, outgoing way,
along with his love of cooking,
were mentioned over and over.
His venison spread, a secret
taken to his grave, will live in
the memories of many, they
said.
As people spoke, the pain of
losing such a friend and mentor
was evident. But there was
another theme that lifted peo-
ple's spirits and seemed to
make coping with his loss easi-
er.
It was the spiritual side of
Sottile, and his profound belief
in the Christian faith, with Jesus
Christ as his Savior, that took

the edge off the hurt.
Speaking as a friend, as well
as a minister, the Rev. Raymond
M. Cameron Jr. described for
everyone the inner most of the
man.
"He loved to share,"
Cameron said, describing
Sottile bringing food to the
table. "The joy on his face as he
watched others enjoying some-
thing he had done."
His joy in sharing the word,
and in discussing the scriptures,


was just as evident, Cameron
said. He told of spending an
afternoon with his friend, as
they climbed around a Bible
park in an idyllic setting in the
woods. They read scripture and
spent comfortable time consid-
ering philosophical questions
through a deeply Christian
faith.
Sottile was a true man of
God, Cameron said. And now
he is with God, who has His
own need of him.


CHILLING
Continued from 1A
family at his side at Max Long
Recreational Complex as dusk
arrived and children played in
the background, 18-year-old
John was still overwhelmed
with shock and disbelief.
He and Altersberger have
been hanging out for about five
months, having met through
mutual friends even though
- they lived just houses from each
other for years.
Their circle did the usual,
John said, underage drinking,
partying, hanging out and play-
ing video games.
"This kid's been in our house
I don't know how many times,"
John's mother offered, explain-
ing that Altersberger had a
quiet, polite demeanor.
When asked if Altersberger
whose juvenile record
includes arrests for a knife
attack on his mother hnd drug
possession acted differently
without adult supervision, John
said, "He didn't want to get in
anybody's way."
John and Altersberger
allegedly linked up at a friend's
house around 5 p.m. Friday and
spent the next four hours visit-
ing the homes of several others.
Altersberger was having his
head shaved, and was smoking
a "blunt," according to John.
By the time they hooked up,
John said Altersberger had con-
sumed a bottle of brandy and,
together, they finished another.
One of their stops was at
John's house where he lives
with his mother and her
boyfriend.
"He told me about it, but I
didn't really believe him," John


said of his friend's alleged brag-
gadocios confession.
They spent 15-20 minutes at
John's house, where his moth-
er's computer heretofore served
as a community link to the
Internet.
John and his family would
later learn that Altersberger
allegedly posted a
MySpace.com message that
mocked Sottile's death.
A link to the Fox 13 Web site
was included in a message a
MySpace.com message posted
by username "Big Josh" with
the subject "hahahahahaha
...... (expletive deleted) the
police."
The "Big Josh" message
includes a picture of a person
who appears to be Altersberger
with his arms crossed, wearing
a white ball cap and a horizon-
tally striped shirt hanging past
his waist.
The message, dated 8:01
p.m. Jan. 12, was sent without
John's knowledge, he said.
"No more, except for fami-
ly," John's mother said of the
former open-door policy of the
computer, which investigators
took for evidence.
John's mother was at work
when she learned about the
shooting. After a few errands,
she was at the house by 5:45
p.m. Friday, and was there
when her son and Altersberger
passed through about 8 p.m.
She asked Altersberger if he
had heard about the shooting, to
which he allegedly replied that
he had driven past the scene.
"It was like it was nothing to
him," she said, explaining that
Altersberger wasn't nervous or
jumpy. "He was just normal."
Would she have called police
had she known his alleged


involvement?
"Oh, heck yeah!" she said,
pointing toward her son. "In a
heartbeat, mainly to protect this
one."
Leaving John's home,
Altersberger and John visited
other friends.
They took John's Jeep, not
Altersberger "new" 2003
Toyota Camry, which they said
he bought within the past two
months and had just replaced
the paper tag with a license
plate.
Altersberger told them he'd
left his car with his girlfriend,
John said, explaining why he
drove.
The man dating John's moth-
er said Altersberger seemed to
be a good kid caught up with
the "old gangster" image preva-
lent with teenagers.
John's family was aware that
Altersberger went to a Florida
youth boot camp, but they said
he was trying to turn his life
around.
When asked why he stayed
with Altersberger once he was
certain his friend wasn't lying,
John searched for but never
offered an explanation.
.At what would be their last
social call, friends confronted
Altersberger for his boastful
talk, John said, and a fight
almost broke out.
"That's when 1 took him
home," John said, explaining
that they talked at length out-
side Altersberger's residence
before John returned to the last
house they visited.
Before he arrived, John
learned that a parent who over-
head Altersberger had called the
police.
John spent the next 13 hours
with a Highlands County


Sheriff's detective, driving
around Sebring.
He pointed out the usual
hangouts in search of
Altersberger and Quintin
Kinder, the passenger who fled
from Altersberger's Camry into
an orange grove allegedly just
before the shooting.
"Quin had absolutely nothing
to do with it," John said of his
other friend, who eventually
,surrendered. to officers not far
from where Sottile was shot.
Meanwhile, SWAT officers
swarmed John's neighborhood,
focusing on Altersberger's resi-
dence.
"You wouldn't believe how
friggin' loud those things are,"
Daniel Warren said of the flash-
bang grenades used to subdue
Altersberger.
Warren, who also lives near
the suspect, was awakened by
the commotion that preceded
Altersberger's arrest.
The police arrived between
1:30 and 2 a.m., he said, and
they spent about 3 1/2 hours in
the neighborhood before taking
the suspect into custody.
"With that many cops, they
just tackled him," Warren said.
"It took a little bit to get him
under control."
Crime scene investigators
remained at Altersberger's
house through the morning,
departing around 11 after
removing "quite a few bags of
evidence out of there," Warren
said.
Like John's family, Warren
said Altersberger appeared to be
a decent guy.
"But, who would you expect
to do that?" Warren said.

Nicholas Sottile.

Players Club Sports Center scores big in Avon Park


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK During the
six years that Joseph Baldridge
coached Dixie Youth, he often
couldn't get the right equip-
ment. That's why he opened
Players Club Sports Center.
Three years ago Joseph and
his wife Priscilla opened
Baldridge Lawn and Garden,
where they offered parts, serv-
ice and repairs for residential
and commercial lawn machin-
ery. That business still operates
in the back of the building but
the showroom now displays all
their sports equipment selec-
tions.
Any favorite brand of balls or
helmets for basketball, football,
baseball, volleyball, soccer or
softball can be found at Players
Club Sports Center. Items for
cheerleading and dance are also
available. Baldridge offers free
quotes and no set up fees when
schools, churches or businesses
want screenprinting on their
league's apparel. He even offers
discounts for bulk purchases.
"We're offering new stuff to the
area at good prices," Joseph
Baldridge said.
For the Department of
Corrections, belts and uniforms
are available. They come in
camouflage or the brown BDU
(military style) pants.
Some examples of the
diverse equipment to choose
from are Tanel 360 degree
shoes which take the stress off
batters when they're running.


The cleats are set in circles so
that when they twist, the stress
is taken off knees and ankles.
The store offers Rawlings
pants, pads and gloves, plus
Shock Doctor mouthpieces.
These are ideal for anyone
wearing braces because they
come with a guarantee that if
there is an injury they take care
of the dental costs. Franklin
brand has lower-priced batting
tees, pop-up picture targets,
while WSI offers reasonably-
priced undercoating shirts to
keep the perspiration away.
There are JUGS and Heater
brands of pitching equipment.
Baldridge carries major brand
name catcher's and umpire's
equipment. GloveSmith is a
brand especially for younger
kids. "It's made of different
leather and easier to break in,"
Joseph Baldridge said.
The Baldridges do special
orders weekly, so there's no
long wait for items. "Our
Adams USA and Neumann bat-
ting gloves are good quality at
good prices. We not only have
left and right gloves, but can
custom order with a quick turn-
around. Parents are impressed
when they come in and see our
wide selection and the reason-
able pricing on socks, belts,
pants, shoes and balls. I have
four sons: Justin, Jayson, Andy
and Alex. They're age 8-13.
My teenager is taller than I am
and wears a size 15 shoe. I
understand kids, sporting
needs," Baldridge said.


PhotoL, Oy SUE ANN CARPENTERNewc-Su,
Players Club Sports Center owners Priscilla and Joseph Baldridge
stand behind a pitcher's backstop at their Avon Park store.


For coaches there are clip-
boards, tees, air needles for fill-
ing balls, stop watches, score-
books, and line-up cards.
"Because I had trouble finding
specific equipment as a coach, I
make sure I have hard-to-find


items like break-apart ice packs
for someone injured on the
field, or training aids for kids.
Parents like the fact that we
carry team colors and the hard
to find shades like teal, red, or
royal blue-especially for base-

the Sandwich Depot on Main
Street.) Hours are 10 a.m. to 6

Cardiovascular disease and


periodontal disease widespread


By DR. DAVID E. WILLEY
Special to the News-Sun
'Ciardiovascular disease.:andperiodontal (gum)
Sdi*sase ae widespread throughout the popula-
tion.
Both diseases have many similarities in terms
of the disease process. They usually progress
slowly in a non-painful fashion. Symptoms do
not usually develop until the disease processes
have caused irreversible damage to the affected
structures. Both diseases have risk factors as well
as warning signs. Research has demonstrated a
link between the two diseases. Most patients do
not realize there are direct effects from cardio-
vascular disease to oral health and dental treat-
ment.
Periodontal disease involves a bacterial infec-
tion and an inflammatory response produced by
body's reaction to the infection. These two
aspects may explain the biologic mechanism
which links periodontal disease and cardiovascu-
lar disease. One theory is that bacteria from peri-
odontal disease may enter the bloodstream and
contribute directly to the formation of blood clots
throughout the cardiovascular system. Research
has already isolated the same bacteria in dental
plaque and in the plaques and clots of arterioscle-
rosis (hardening of the arteries). Another theory
is that the enzymes secreted by the body to attach
dental plaque enter the blood stream and affect
the linings of the blood vessels causing clots and
fatty deposits.
Prevention of both cardiovascular disease and
periodontal disease is the key to good health.
Some risk factors for both diseases can not be
changed. Certain traits are inherited from our par-
ents. With cardiovascular disease, high choles-
terol and family history of heart disease are two
such traits. With periodontal disease, there are
certain inherited genes which increase our sus-
ceptibility to periodontal disease. There are now
DNA blood tests to identify patients who are at
risk for periodontal disease. Hormonal changes in
females also increase both disease processes.
One of the key preventive components of both
diseases is diet. A well-balanced diet with an
emphasis on Vitamins B and C and the mineral
iron are important nutrients which help with heal-
ing tissues and maintaining good health.
Smoking is also a risk factor for both diseases.
Smoking prolongs healing and accelerates the
disease processes in cardiovascular disease and
periodontal disease.
Stress reduction is another important preven-
tive component in both diseases. Stress does not
cause either disease, but rather intensifies and
speeds up both disease processes. Exercise is a
major factor in preventing cardiovascular disease
and periodontal disease. Aerobic exercise is rec-
ommended for cardiovascular health. With peri-
odontal disease, brushing and flossing are the
exercise regimen for prevention of disease.
Another important aspect of disease preven-
tion is regular physical and regular dental pre-
ventive exam-cleaning visits. It is during these
visits that your health care professional can
assess your health and the disease process as well
as make recommendations regarding treatment.
Most cardiovascular patients take prescription
medications to treat the disease. One would think
with the infectious nature of periodontal disease
that these patients would be on long-term antibi-
otics. This is not the case with periodontal dis-


ease as the bacteria become resistant over time to
the antibiotics. There are some new medications
currently being utilized in periodontal treatment
in conjunction with standard periodontal surgery.
Most heart and blood pressure medications
have side effects that manifest in the mouth.
Xerostomia, otherwise known as dry mouth, is a
side effect in over 200 of these medications
which can lead to root decay. Root decay is very
difficult to treat and prevent from recurring. Root
decay is caused by the lack of saliva which buf-
fets or neutralizes the acids produced from food.
Most patients with dry mouth syndrome should
be on a nightly prescription fluoride rinse to help
in the prevention of root decay.
Dry mouth syndrome can also lead to chronic
yeast infections in the mouth. Swollen overgrown
gums occur on average of 30 percent with calci-
um channel blockers, 50 percent with dilantin
and 25 percent with cyclosporins. Be sure to read
your drug information sheets to be aware of pos-
sible side effects of the drugs are taking. These
sheets are easily obtained from your pharmacist.
One common drug which is often overlooked
by patients when filling our health history forms
is aspirin. One regular adult aspirin a day can
cause significant bleeding problems during surgi-
cal and restorative procedures. It is important to
inform your dentist about your aspirin regime
prior to dental treatment.
Two other common blood thinners are
Coumadin and Plavix. These anticoagulants have
dramatic effects on dental treatment. Your dentist
will need to contact your physician to determine
the appropriate regimen for these drugs. It is typ-
ical for a patient to stop these drugs for 5-7 days
prior to surgical procedures. Do not stop these
drugs on your own, make sure your physician
instructs you on the proper regimen.
Most of the focus of dental treatment and oral
health for cardiovascular patients focuses on
maintaining ideal plaque control to minimize the
potential for bacterial infection in the blood-
stream. Patients with recent heart attacks or
strokes are recommended to postpone elective
dental treatment for six months. Patients with
heart valves or heart murmurs require antibiotics
prior to dental treatment. It is recommended to
allow seven days between appointments if a
patient requires antibiotic coverage. Patients with
pace-makers and automatic defibrillators do not
need antibiotic coverage.
Patients with significant cardiovascular dis-
ease should have shorter appointments, prefer-
ably in the morning when the patient is well rest-
ed and has reserve energy. Stress reduction is
important for cardiovascular patients. Profound
anesthesia should. be obtained to minimize the
chance of pain and elevate blood pressure.
Good dental health is desirable, not only for
the teeth and gums, but also for general health
and longevity. The similarities between cardio-
vascular disease and periodontal disease have
been examined as well as the effects of both dis-
eases on each other. And now the link between
cardiovascular disease and periodontal disease
emphasizes the importance of good dental health
to help insure good cardiovascular health. As
more research is done to explore the mechanisms
common to both disease, treatment regimens for
both diseases will change. As for now, remember
to floss the teeth you want to keep it will also
help your overall health.


Mental illness, substance abuse only


diseases to result in imprisonment


What are the only two dis-
eases we put people in jail for?
That would be mental illness
and substance abuse.
The closing of the mental
institutions in the 1970s and
1980s was a needed measure to
stop the horrendous abuse at
that time. Investment of major
pharmaceuticals in medicine to
help treat mental illness has
been continuously improving
the lives of those who agree to
take medication.
However, treatment is not
available to everyone, either for
lack of financial resources, or
lack of available services. Of
the estimated 610.000
Floridians who experience seri-
ous mental illnesses, fewer than
25 percent receive any care at
all in the public mental health
system.
According to the 2006 report
published by the National
Alliance on Mental Illness
Florida ranks 48th nationally in
per capital spending for public
mental health services.
Law enforcement., correc-
tional facilities and courts
around Florida have increasing-
ly become the lone responders
to people in crisis due to
untreated mental illnesses.
Because of funding limits on
community based care and lack
of screening and outreach serv-
ices, Florida's jails and prisons
are now the largest psychiatric
facilities in the state.
Roughly 11,000 inmates
(15.8 percent of the population)
in Florida prisons receive ongo-
ing mental health care. Another
1,100 individuals are housed in
forensic mental health facilities.
By contrast, only about 1.400
state hospital beds exist to serve
the needs of the civil mental
health system for the entire
state.
We are currently urging our
legislators to establish a
statewide local grant program
that will provide funding for
counties seeking to establish or
expand programs for people
with serious mental illnesses
and co-occurring substance use
disorders involved in the crimi-
nal justice system.
Combined with local match-
ing dollars and based on locally
identified needs, this funding is
a long term joint initiative
between state and local govern-
ments with the goal of provid-
ing effective and coordinated
services between the criminal
justice and behavioral health
care systems. The purpose is to
develop and expand the com-
munity based mental health
services in order to minimize
the gaps in the system and
reduce recidivism (the revolv-
ing door).
The proposals will require
communities applying for fund-
ing to demonstrate the ability to
leverage, blend and maximize
local, state and federal
resources. Communities will be
required to organize and coordi-
nate resources and services
among the many stakeholders,
including law enforcement, the
courts, community mental
health and substance abuse
providers, mental health con-
sumers and family members,
and advocates. Providers of
housing and other support serv-
ices will be included as well.
The proposed programs will
be required to establish cost
effective, graduated continu-
ums of care and response that
target both prevention and


intervention strate-
gies and demonstrate
the ability to sustain
operations beyond
the period of funding.
Key outcome and
performance meas-
ures will include:
reductions in
local and state crimi-
nal justice system
costs
fewer people


entering the state
funded forensic men-
tal health system
decreased demand for
costly inpatient hospitalization
and other crises services
fewer criminal offenses
committed by people with men-
tal illnesses
reduced recidivism to jail
among people with mental ill-
nesses
increase compliance with
treatment.
improved rehabilitation
outcomes
improved economic self-
sufficiency .
enhanced public safety
reduced homelessness and
suicide
This week the Legislative
Budget Commission authorized
the release of $16 million to
fund 373 beds for those with
mental illnesses waiting in jail.
This money is a stop gap meas-
ure to be funded until the end of
this fiscal year (June) and will
have to be addressed in the
upcoming legislative session
for the approximately $48 mil-


lion it sill cost to
keep these beds on
line each year.
This money will
not solve the current
crisis, nor will it fix
the broken system.
We need to invest
in and expand our
community based
system of care in
order to reduce the
contact with the


criminal justice sys-
tem by those with
serious mental illnesses and co-
occurring substance use disor-
ders.

ing, contact your local legisla-
tors with this information and

Disturbing tragedy

Sgt. Nicholas G. Sottile went to work Friday just as he
had done for the past 23 years. He put on his uniform,
pinned on his badge and holstered his pistol to his hip
before setting out for another shift with the Florida
Highway Patrol.
How his shift ended made national news Friday night.
Sottile was killed after making a traffic stop north of
Lake Placid. As the passenger of the car took off running
through an orange grove, the driver of the car shot and
killed Sottile on the side of the busy highway.
Sirens could be heard for hours after the 3:22 p.m.
shooting. Roadblocks were initiated. Hundreds of law
enforcement personnel from Lee and Polk counties, Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the
Seminole Nation Law Enforcement joined Highlands
County officers and Florida Highway Patrol troopers in a
massive manhunt.
In less than 10 hours, their diligent search paid off.
SWAT officers arrested 19-year-old Joshua Lee
Altersberger at his Sebring residence shortly after I a.m.
Saturday.
The passenger, Quintin J. Kinder, 21, of Bainbridge,
Ga., surrendered without incident to a perimeter team at
7:23 a.m.
What is most disturbing in this tragedy is the complete
and total lack of remorse exhibited by the alleged shoot-
er following the crime. Not only did he allegedly brag to
others about his deed, drink alcohol and smoke marijua-
na, but he also posted a disparaging remark about the
police on his personal MySpace.com page.
What is disturbing is that society keeps breeding these
animals ... these people who can take a life and find
pleasure in doing so. How do these seriously flawed indi-
viduals travel amongst us each day, and not be seen for
what they are?
The passenger in Altersberger's vehicle has been
charged only with trespassing. He accepts no culpability
for Sottile's death. However, he rode in the car with
Altersberger for two minutes after Altersberger allegedly
declared his intention to gun down Sottile.
It has been speculated that Kinder was in fear of his
life should he remain nearby, that had he done anything
to prevent the crime, or to save Sottile after the shooting,
he may become a target for payback. None of that wash-
es. .
Altersberger's criminal history shows he has been a
blight on the face of Florida for a long time. He is an
individual completely devoid of honor.
Kinder's innocence was lost Friday also, if through
nothing more than association.
Law enforcement officials should be commended for
their swift action in making these arrests, and more
importantly for exercising great restraint in bringing the
two men in alive.
Highlands County lost a favorite son Friday night. The
state of Florida lost a dedicated servant. Those who knew
Nick Sottile lost the most ... they lost someone they love.


Dirty little secret revealed


I picked my daughter up
from her boyfriend's house at
about 8 p.m. Dec. 23. I was
picking her up earlier than
arranged but I had plans, not the
least of which was purging my
conscience of a crime I had
committed.
What I did wrong might not
be a big deal to some people
and to others it may seem the
worst kind of betrayal. Suffice
it to say that it was an honest
mistake, and when I found out
that I had been using her tooth-
brush every day for three
months running, I felt really
bad about it.
Toothbrush manufacturers
claim that a toothbrush should
be replaced every few months.
So I go out roughly four times a
year and buy new toothbrushes
for everyone in the house.
Teenagers are big fans of sim-
ple pleasures, so when I come
in with these new toothbrushes,
a mad scramble ensues.
"I want the red one ... no, the
yellow one ... but, wait! I had
yellow last time ... I want the
blue one!"
Of course the easy thing to
do would be to assign each kid
a color and be done with it, and
that might work out on "The
Brady Bunch" where kids pret-
ty well so do what they're told,
but this is the real world we're
talking about, here.
I could really care less what
color 1 get, and my husband is
never involved in these tooth-
brush skirmishes because he
likes to buy his own. He spends
a lot of time picking out the
right one, and more often than
not it's battery-operated and
looks like something NASA
would develop for the astro-
nauts.
After the last toothbrush pur-
chase I was left with what I
believed was the forlorn non-

chosen remainder: the purple
one. I found out different one
morning a few months later
when Jenny was getting ready
for school and needed to move
her daily necessities from one
bathroom to the other in the
interest of time.
"Hey, before you lock your-
self in there," she said to her
sister at the bathroom door,
"give me my stuff so I can use
the other bathroom. I need my
blow dryer and my toothbrush."
"Which toothbrush is
yours?" Jill asked.
"The purple one."
I was sitting a few feet away
and the moment the words left
Jenny's mouth a myriad of
mysteries were solved, such as
why my toothbrush was some-
times wet when I went to use it,
or why it was not in the same
position it was the last time I
used it.
Naturally I froze. I had no
idea what to do. I was less wor-
ried at that moment about the
transfer of germs than I was
about destroying my daughter's
peace of mind and getting
chewed out. So, I opted to keep
my dirty little secret. But as
time wore on I struggled with
the age-old quandary of "to tell
or not to tell."
After all, she never really

Martin Luther King Jr.: A man, a life and a dream


Even though each one of us
is essentially a different person,
I believe that we all hold some
common aspects ... like having
a dream.
Not just the kind that cross
your mind every once in a
while, but the ones that absorb
you when your mind is wander-
ing. It is the place you go when
you are sitting at a long red
light or what happens when you
turn off the music on a long car
drive. It is the dreams that we
share.
Yet, sadly, the one thing that
we do not all share about these
things is the questing in which
we pursue them with. For some,
these dreams consume their
entire being and they are run-
ning after it hard. For others,
they seem as if just a breeze in
the dark, knowing that it is
there, but they will never follow
after it.

Barricades

are needed
Editor:
It is important to install steel
barricades in the very narrow,
very low concrete median
between Wendy's and the
Sunset Beach Motel on U.S. 27
in Sebring.
If something can go wrong,
it will. There are many negative
scenarios that could happen at
this very busy spot. Following
is one:
A car heading south is going
to turn into Lakeview Drive, so
while making the angle turn
into the left turn lanes on a wet,
oily pavement and with not
such good tires, loses control of
steering and crosses over that
low concrete median, head-on
into northbound traffic. And
those headed north may be
traveling at 55-plus. Many
deaths can happen.
Place the barricades as soon
as possible please.

Dictators even

face limitations
Editor:
During his "surge" speech
President George W. Bush
darkly suggested that the
lED's, the Improvised Explo-
sive Device that are killing
Americans are made in Iran.
He said it in precisely the same
way, tonals and body English,
that he used when, during the
State of the Union speech a few
years ago, when he said Iraqis
were trying to buy uranium in
Africa, in order to strengthen
his arguments for war.
Since our president, who
thinks he is chosen by God,
whose credibility is at nadir, 1
began to ponder this statement
since IED's are a creative use
to which old artillery shells are
put. After we completed our
campaign against the Iraqi
army we decided not to blow
up the Iraqi ammunition
dumps, which were overflow-
ing with artillery shells. It
would seem that importing
artillery shells from Iran when
they were in virtually unlimited
supply in Iraq, seems like car-
rying coals to Newcastle.
Was the "decider" planting
his first seed in a crop of lies
that would lead to world war
III? In view of recent history I
think it is of vital importance to
investigate the truth or fallacy
of this statement less we find
our country, once again past the
tipping point and dragged into
another Bush-created war
based on false evidence, which
we can ill afford.
With the dangerous possibil-
ity of unintended conse-
quences, our diplomacy should
be at a level of something bet-
ter than a sharp stick in one's
eye. Teddy Roosevelt coun-
seled "speak softly but carry a
big stick." President Bush
should be reminded that win-
ning an election did not vest in
him an absolute power to willy
nilly take the country wherever
he chooses with regard to the
will of the people. Even the old
Roman Republic limited the
term of a dictator to six months,
and only then in an extreme
emergency.

MURPHY'S LAW

Lindsey Murphy

Monday off from school that
made me contemplate such
issues. Well, I take that back. It
wasn't having the day off; it
was the purpose behind having
the day off.
When one thinks about it, the
thought that we have this day
off as a national holiday was
due to the dream of one man.
One man spoke and touched not
only a generation, but an entire


"*%


nation. It was through the mas-
sive movement of many strong
and dedicated individuals that
this country slowly began a
path in a new direction.
What I find to be the most
interesting and inspiring mes-
sage behind this whole move-
ment is the man saw a need for
a change and pursued after it. It
was not a dream that will only
accomplish the needs of him-
self, but one for others as well.
He pushed after and figurative-
ly fought for these needs of
those around him. Even when
the trying times came around,
the man stuck to what he knew
was right.
If you know the feeling of
seeing a dream of yours being
fulfilled, you completely under-
stand why you must keep push-
ing on. Better yet, if that dream
involved others and seeing their
joy, you know why it is so
important to keep pursuing


hard. And some of the times
you will never see the benefits
of your hard work now, for the
effects might take many genera-
tions to be felt. After all, you
never know how many needs
you will fill with the hard pur-
suing of your life.
I just thought it might be fit-
ting to end this with a quote in
which you probably know. It
comes from the famous "I Have
Dream" speech that Martin
Luther King Jr. orated more
than 40 years ago on equity for
all mankind. "I have a dream
that my four little children will
one day live in a nation where
they will not be judged by the
color of their skin but by the
content of their character. I have
a dream today."

The benefits of a college
education are no secret. With a
college degree, young adults
have more career choices and
the opportunity to provide
financial security for their fam-
ilies. The U.S. Department of
Labor reports that a college
graduate can earn, on average.
$1 million more over a lifetime
than someone who doesn't go
to college.*
For many Florida families,
the question isn't whether to
send their children to college,
but how they will afford to do
so. The Florida Prepaid College
Board provides a safe and
affordable option: the Florida

Prepaid College Plan. The plan
allows families to prepay the
cost of a college education
today. The Florida Prepaid
College Plan is a safe and
affordable way to save for col-
lege.
In many cases, the savings
for a family can be dramatic.
According to Ernst & Young,
the board's actuarial consulting
firm, when today's newborns
enter college in 18 years, the
cost of a four-year education at
a Florida public university
(tuition, local fees and dormito-
ry housing) will be approxi-
mately $98,000. With the
Prepaid College Plan, parents
of a newborn today can pur-
chase four years of tuition,
local fees and dormitory hous-
ing at a Florida public universi-
ty for approximately $30,000 if
made in a lump-sum payment,
and save more than $68,000.
To lock in current plan
prices, enroll by Wednesday,
Jan. 31. This year. tuition plan
prices start at lcss than $25 a
month for the two-year com-


unity college plan.
Education opens the door to
opportunity. The Florida
Prepaid College Plan can help
families save for college and
prepare their children for the
future.

Beall's helps

with food drive

Editor:
I would like to express my
thanks to the employees of
Beall's department store at
Lakeshore Mall in Sebring for
their generous donation of
canned and boxed food.
In December, students of
Avon Park Middle School held
a food drive to assist needy
families. When I saw that the
seventh-grade class had not
collected enough food, I made
an appeal to the employees at
Beall's and within two days
they had collected dozens of


food items.
With the help of our teach-
ers, the donated food from
Beall's, students. parents and
friends was given to The
Salvation Army to be distrib-
uted to needy families within
our communities.
Thanks to you all for helping
to make our food drive a suc-
cess.

SECRET
Continued from 12A
needed to find out, but I have a
strong conscience and the
Purple Toothbrush Secret
reared its ugly head more times
during the course of the day
than I'd like to think about. 1
finally gave in to my sense of
honesty and decided to confess,
and steeled myself for a first
rate tongue-lashing.
"Hi," she said when she got
in the truck.
"Hilhavebadnews," I said in
a rush, so I couldn't back out.
"Oh noooooo!," she replied
with enough dread in her voice
that I might as well have said
that the Koreans had started a
nuclear war.
I explained briefly what had
happened and how, and her
reaction was predictable.
"Grrrrroooooooooooooossss
ssssss!," she yelled, and now,
days later, I feel certain that that
word is still hovering haunting-
ly in the air over central
Florida.
I was terrified. This was
going to be bad ... she's such a
stickler about personal proper-
ty, bless her. I prepared for a


hurricane, what came was a
spring shower.
"Well, it's not like you have
some awful disease or some-
thing. But it's still gross."
That was it? No tantrums?
No wailing about how she had
no rights and no privacy and
how she would be better off liv-
ing with a family of orangutans
in a rubber tree in the middle of
the Amazon rain forest?
"I bought you a new one," 1
hastened to assure her. "It's.
green, your favorite color. No
more mistakes."
"OK," she said. "Hey, did I
tell you that I was going to
make cookies for Ben for ..."
You just never know about
kids ... the minute you think
you've figured out all the rules
they go and change them on
you, but in this particular case,
I can't say I was disappointed.

Fund takes a strong stand against violence


This article is in response to
the many inquiries about infor-
mation on dealing with family
violence, and violence among
children and the availability of
resources and new develop-
ment as it pertains to the strug-
gles in the home and work-
place.
Recently, the Family
Violence Prevention Fund
destroyed a $25,000 "unsolicit-
ed" check that was presented to
them from "tshirthell.com."
In rejecting the money, FVPF
President Esta Soler said, "We
will not accept funds from com-
panies that profit from the sales
and distribution of images that


trItie,


demean and harm women and
people of color."
Soler said, "If leaders at
tshirtshell.com truly want to
support efforts to stop violence


against women and children,
help victims and promote jus-
tice, the company will stop
depicting women as sex object
and reinforcing negative stereo-
types. While we recognize that
some of the products are meant
to be humorous, we are con-
vinced that they foster attitudes
that debase women and minori-
ties and sanction violence."
While The Family Violence
Prevention Fund received some
criticism for rejecting the
check, based on the organiza-
tion's beliefs, that of violence
prevention and protecting
women and children, and what
tshirthell.com stands for, many


applauded the organization's
decision.
The Family Violence
Prevention Fund is ferocious in
its attempt to stop violence
against women, has under its
umbrella, www.foundingfa
thers.org or endabuse.org.
If you or someone you know
needs assistance against domes-
tic violence call 402-7248 or 1-
800-621-4202.

Davidson earns prestigious


General Billy Mitchell Award


SEBRING Emily
Davidson, an Honors student at
Sebring High School, is making
her mark in the Civil Air Patrol.
Over the past few years, she
has served as flight leader,
flight commander, first ser-
geant, deputy commander, and
cadet commander. She has
completed summer encamp-
ment as well as the Army
Confidence Course. She has
rappelled off a 75-foot tower
and flown a Cessna 172 with
her hands at the controls. Now,
she has earned the prestigious
General Billy Mitchell Award.
The Mitchell Award has
existed since 1964 and honors
the late Brigadier General Billy
Mitchell, aviation pioneer,
advocate, and staunch supporter
of an independent Air Force for
America.
CAP, the official auxiliary of
the U.S. Air Force, has a three-
fold mission: Aerospace educa-
tion, emergency services and
disaster relief, and the cadet
program. The cadet program
provides opportunities for the
education, maturation, and nur-
turing of leadership to over
27,000 young Americans. With
advice and assistance from
CAP members at national,
regional, state and local levels,
as well as the U.S. Air Force,
cadets are exposed to a struc-
tured program of aerospace
education, leadership, moral
values, and physical fitness.
The cadet program is divided
into 16 achievements which
involve study and performance
in the five program areas. Upon
completion of each achieve-
ment, the cadet earns increased
responsibility, decorations,
awards, eligibility for national

dent at Sebring High School,

and international special activi-
ties and opportunities for both
flight and academic scholar-
ships.
The second milestone of this
endeavor is the Mitchell Award,
earned after completing the first
eight achievements of the cadet
program. The cadet must meet
rigorous physical training, par-
ticipation, and leadership stan-
dards, must pass an arduous
written examination testing
leadership theory and aerospace
topics, and must appear before
and be approved by a board of
senior officers. Since the
award's inception more than 30
years ago, more than 42,000
cadets have earned this honor.
Being such an important
milestone in the CAP cadet pro-
gram, the Mitchell Award is
normally presented by a CAP
group commander or higher, the
Wing director of cadet pro-
grams, or a state or federal gov-
ernment official. Emily's award
was presented by Lt. Col. Fran


Gleockler, commander of
Group 5 of the Florida Wing.
Once cadets earn the Mitchell
Award, they are promoted to the
grade of cadet second lieu-
tenant. If these cadets later
enter CAP's adult program,
they are eligible for immediate
promotion to CAP second lieu-
tenant.
Mitchell Award cadets may
also apply for a variety of
scholarships and CAP special
activities. Should they choose
to enlist in the U.S. Air Force,
Mitchell recipients are eligible
for advanced placement in the
grade of E-3 (airman first
class). They are also eligible for
advanced credit in the Air Force
ROTC program.
Davidson is the daughter of
Edward and Marie-France
Davidson, of Sebring. When
she is not excelling in academ-
ics or CAP, she enjoys choral
singing, writing prose and poet-
ry, bowling, foreign language
study, and international travel.
She hopes to pursue a career in
research biology at the doctoral
level.
Squadron Commander Capt.
LeaAnn Curry, said Davidson is
a "very dedicated, intelligent,
and resourceful cadet."
Deputy Commander 2Lt
Gene Monroe added, "We are
all very proud of Emily and the
diligence she has demonstrated
in becoming the first female
cadet officer in our Squadron."
The Sebring Composite
Squadron meets at 7 p.m.
Monday in the Knights of
Columbus Hall, across from
Lakeshore Mall. Youth from
12-21 years of age and adults
are invited to come and discov-
er what the CAP has to offer.

has done the most to promote the art of clowning.
At the general meeting of Toby's Clown Alley,

Snyder; Linda "Snookie" Peck; Sue "Rainbow"
Rauschenplat and Bob "Bo-Blu" Hebert.
Pelski is in the process of naming her upcom-
ing committees for the alley. It was a solemn and
impressive candlelight ceremony whereby the
new officers pledged themselves to the ideals and
purposes of Toby's Clown Alley. The meeting
was very well attended by clowns, family and
friends.
The alley is quite active in the town of Lake
Placid. Members visit the library, nursing homes
and hospital. They attend the Caladium Festival,

Lunch Club

Wednesday

honors Blanche

Wehenkel
SEBRING Blanche
Wehenkel, of Sebring, won the
CeCe Courage award at the
Lunch Club Wednesday lunch-
eon last week.
Wehenkel, 91, had a total
knee replacement Dec. 19. She
has excelled in her physical
therapy and is now home. She
was unable to attend the lunch-
eon last week, but her daughter,
Sandia Wehenkel, accepted her
award on her behalf. Hobby
Hill Florist presented her with a
fresh flower arrangement and a
$25 gift certificate in the store.
Wehenkel spent Christmas in
Florida Hospital in Wauchula
during her rehabilitation there.
She was surprised when a real
Christmas tree with decorations
was sent to her by Alan Jay
Wildstein, of Sebring. He found
out she longed for the smell of
a real Christmas tree and hadn't
had one in years. Her husband
insisted on artificial ones every
year, according to her daughter.
The tree was delivered to her
hospital room.
Lunch Club Wednesday is a
networking club for ladies in
Highlands County. The group ,
which celebrated its one year

Kiwanis clubs to celebrate

92nd anniversary next week


SEBRING Kiwanis mem-
bers will mark Kiwanis
International's 92nd birthday
during Kiwanis Anniversary
Week, Jan. 21-27, according to
Lauri Kinslow, president of the
Kiwanis Club of Sebring.
The club will celebrate with
a special birthday party at
Homer's Smorgasbord at noon
Wednesday, Jan. 24.
The first Kiwanis club was
chartered on Jan. 21, 1915, in
Detroit. Today, Kiwanis has
grown to number 8,400 clubs
and 270,000 members in 96
countries around the world.
Kiwanis clubs raise funds and
sponsor community service
projects with the motto
"Serving the Children of the
World."
The Kiwanis Club of Sebring
was chartered in 1960. Local
Kiwanis service projects
include Heartland Horses &
Handicapped, Ridge Area Arc,
Children's Advocacy Center,
Holiday Outreach, Big
Brothers/Big Sisters, Highlands
County Family Safe House, law
education, Nu-Hope Elder Care
Services Inc., Boys & Girls
Clubs, Children's Museum,
Key Club, Children's Home
Society, Aktion Club, Boy
Scouts and Girl Scouts.
Last year, Kiwanis clubs
around the world raised and
spent more than $100 million
on community service activi-
ties, with a special emphasis on
meeting the needs of young
children. Kiwanis members
also donated almost 6 million
volunteer hours to these service
activities. This money and time
supported almost 150,000
Kiwanis projects to meet com-
munity needs.
Kiwanis International's con-
tinuing service focus is called
"Young Children: Priority
One." Under this theme, each
Kiwanis club is encouraged to
sponsor significant projects that
serve the special needs of
young children from prenatal
development to age 5.
Kiwanis clubs around the
world are also conducting the
first Kiwanis Worldwide
Service Project in partnership
with the United Nations
Children's Fund. Kiwanis has
raised more than $75 million to
assist nations in eliminating
iodine deficiency disorders, the
leading preventable cause of
mental retardation in the world
today.
As Kiwanis International
marks its 92nd anniversary,
Kiwanis funds are now at work
in almost 100 nations, and
UNICEF estimates that
Kiwanis-funded IDD programs
are protecting more than 90


million newborn children from
diminished mental skills each
year.
The Kiwanis service family
includes Circle K clubs for col-
legians, Key Clubs for high
school students. Builders Clubs
for junior high :and middle
school students, and K-Kids for
the elementary ages. These
Kiwanis youth members num-
ber more than 300,000.
The Sebring Kiwanis club
sponsors the Sebring High
School Key Club.
Inaugurated in 2005 with 30
events across the continent, the
Kiwanis-sponsored Key Leader
program provides a unique
leadership development experi-
ence for teens. The cornerstone
of Key Leader is "service lead-
ership," which includes leading
by example and empowering
others to achieve their full
potential.
"This is an exciting time to
be a Kiwanian," said Kiwanis
International President Nelson
Tucker of Chatsworth, Calif.
"Kiwanis may be 92 years old,
but new things are happening in
this organization every day and
our future is unlimited."
All present and past Kiwanis
members are encouraged to
attend the celebration Jan. 24.
For details, call membership
chair Grace Plants at 273-1421.

He informed those present of
the animated Reverse 911 call
systems the sheriff's office uses
to quickly notify residents of
important information. In the
event of an emergency, Reverse
911 provides a fast and secure
way to inform residents of a
missing person, predators or
suspicious crime and how to
react to maintain the best secu-
rity and safety. Animation
makes it possible to notify one
thousand residents in one hour.
The Reverse 911 message will
provide specific information
and instructions and can target
specific areas in communities to
inform and instruct residents.
Reverse 911 does not solicit
for funds. However, other law
enforcement departments hire
professional people to petition
donations via telephone calls.
The sheriff's office does free
security prevention checks
through Crime Prevention at
Lakeshore Mall.

any instrument, come out at
9:30 a.m. Monday for our
practice. We would welcome
you with open arms.
Choir practice also started
and although a few people were
away on various trips, the mem-

enjoyed the songs that were
selected for this year. We look
forward to hearing this group
later on in the year.
This year we had 30-40 vol-
unteers brave some cold, blus-
tery winds to "ring the bell" for

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
'Jan. 17, 2002: "It is still a
:loss, but we lost by four
points and played our
'hearts out." Such were the
vords of Lake Placid coach
Steve Young after his team
came up just short against
Class 5A giant Lakeland,
48-44. The visiting
Dreadnaughts had routed
the Green Dragons 71-44
earlier in the season at
Lakeland, but behind 12
points from Markei Sholtz,
eleven from Ramadhani
Brown and a tough
defense, Lake Placid made
this one a lot more inter-
esting.

The Dragons found a way to win that
night, beating Avon Park 5-3 just after
learning of Sottile's death, but coming up
with another win proved to be a lot
tougher.
"At the beginning, they were not hus-
tling, but at the end they were playing
with heart," Galban said as the teary eyed
Dragons left the field. "It's been rough,
but it'll be all right."

But although the team took its lumps,
it has learned and progressed as the sea-
son has gone on.
"We played well tonight, although
there were even a couple more opportu-
nities where we could have scored,"
Ashley said of his young squad.
"But I'm happy with the win, and hey,
we get to play another game."
That game will be no walk in the park,
however, as the win advanced Sebring to

Devils shut


out Hardee


to advance

Brock, Lander

each score goal
By DANIEL HOEHNE
Sports Writer
BRADENTON The Avon
Park Red Devils joined Sebring
in advancing to Thursday's
District 10-4A semifinals, as
they toppled Hardee by the
same 2-0 score as their county
counterparts.
But it was a pair of Lady
Devils that contributed to the
scoring on what became a
chilly, damp night at Braden
River High School.
The teams battled through a
defensive struggle for most of
the first half, but Alex Brock
slipped one past the Hardee
goalkeeper with less than two
minutes to go to get Avon Park
on the board.
It didn't take Avon P
quite as long for
the second score,
as Melissa Hardee
Lander launched .l
a lob shot from V
30 yards out that
had just enough arc to stay out
of reach and cross the goal line.
"We played just well
enough," first-year Avon Park
head coach Greg Thacker said.
"We came out pretty flat in the
first half. We've only had one
game since before Christmas,
so we were a little flat, but they
woke up and really picked it up
in the second half."
Thacker knows that the task
ahead will be a daunting one, as
the Devils will face Braden
River Thursday night.
"We will have to play a lot
better if we want to compete
with them," he said. "We can't
start out the way we did
tonight, or we'll be down a few
goals to a very tough team."
See DEVILS, page 5D


Life, and golf, can be very


unfair...

OK, now this just isn't fair.
At least with Michelle Wie,
despite being less than half
my age, I could say, "Well, of
course she can hit it farther
than me and better than me.
She's 6-foot-1."
But now with this kid, this
Tadd Fujikawa, who just shot
a 5 under par to finish in a tie
for 20th in the Sony Open
this past weekend, what am I
going to say?
This kid, this Tadd
Fujikawa, is a high school
sophomore, all of 16 years-
old, all of 5-foot-I and he's
out there bettering the majori-
ty of a pro field.
Wie is a freak of nature, to
be sure, and on any given day
her talent is such that she
could replicate her fellow
young Hawaiian's feat.
And while I support her


AND ANOTHER THING ...

efforts to put her game up
against the best of the PGA,
she has yet to break through.
Her game might be better
suited to the men's game but,
as has often been said, per-
haps she needs to learn how
to win first and more consis-
tently, wherever that might
be.


In college, on the LPGA
tour, wherever. She certainly
has the time.
And let's hope this kid, this
Tadd Fujikawa, takes a bit of
a lesson from the still unful-
filled quest of Wie.
There's no rush, no need to
jump into this so quickly.
Enjoy your teen years. Be a
teenager and if your passion
for the game continues and
your game itself continues to
progress, your time will cer-
tainly come.
And I will say, he inspired
me, as one of my aims in
moving down to the ever-
warm state of Florida was to
play a lot more golf and get
better.
If this kid, this Tadd
Fujikawa, this fire-hydrant-
sized teenager can be this

Sunshine Boys fall
short of title defense
The Sunshine Boys senior
softball team made a gallant
effort to defend the state title
they won a year ago, sweeping
through their division before
losing in the state semifinals to
newly crowned champions
Suncoast Orthopedic
The Sunshine Boys opened
with a strong offensive display
led by Warren Watson with a
supporting cast of John Kloet,
Rocky Socarras, Fred Moore
and Harry Thurber. Their
defense centered on pivot man
Dan Pfister, who turned the
double play ball as well as
combining with catcher
(Thurber) to throw out five
would-be scorers.
These efforts were pivotal in
defeating Clubhouse Rest,
American Legion and
Hallmark Dental (twice) and
setting the stage for a possible
repeat of their championship
win of a year before.
But the defense they faced
against Suncoast Orthopedic
featured the entire infield play-
ing on the outfield grass with
the pitcher dropping back to
cover second for force plays.
Manager Harry Bell sug-
gested the way to defeat this
defense would be to bunt,
which is illegal), or with team
speed, which is hard to come
by in this age bracket (70).
"So we're proud of a hard
earned second and congratula-
tions to new champs,
Suncoast," Bell said.

HOEHNE
Continued from 1D
good, there must be hope for
me.
After all, I have always
been a better-than-average ath-
lete, with the requisite eye-
hand coordination, dexterity
and physical ability.
And so with thoughts of this
kid, this Tadd Fujikawa in my
mind, I bought a brand spank-
ing new set of clubs and head-
ed for the driving range.
Drenched with sweat an
hour later, having emptied an
oversized bucket of balls, I
assessed my results.
The baseball swing was still
too prevalent, the massive
slice had carried over from my
old clubs and my hands were
now sore from the death-grip I
had on the club handles.
Damn that kid, that Tadd
Fujikawa.
Dan Hoehne is a sports writer

Lake Placid's Maria Garza (left) gets tripped up trying to defend Jordan Meche of McKeel Academy

DRAGONS
Continued from 1D
The Dragons fell behind
early when freshman Jordan
Meche hooked a corner kick
into the net in the 10th minute.
While the Dragons could only
manage three shots in the first
40 minutes, the assault on the
Lake Placid net continued for
most of the first half. Only
some fine work by goalkeeper
Sydney Stewart kept it a one-


goal game at halftime.
Three minutes into the sec-
ond half, however, the Lake
Placid defense Brooke Phillips
found a hole in the Dragon
defense 5 yards in front of the
net and drilled one past a diving
Stewart to make it 2-0.
Phillips would find the net
two more times in the half, redi-
recting a Laureen Murphy cor-
ner kick to make it 3-0 in the
57th minute and then deflecting
a shot of a sliding Lake Placid
defender for the final goal five


minutes later.
The Dragons did a much bet-
ter job of pressuring the
McKeel net in the final half,
with Erica Resindez and Maria
Garza both getting off solid
shots, but never could find a
way past Wildcat goalkeeper
Kara Watson.
"It was pretty rough today,
but they wanted to go and give
it for (coach Sottile) and they
did their best," Galban said.
"It's all we can ask."

DEVILS
Continued from 1D
"They took it to us the first
time we saw them, but we are a
much different and improved
team than the one they faced."
Thacker didn't have any spe-
cific goals for the team as far as


how far he wanted the Devils to
advance this season, but
Tuesday's win is sure to help
the main goal he had.
"My aim was just to get the
girls to have a winning atti-
tude," he said. "They've really
come a long way and I think
we've gotten that established
here."
