County



rescinds



public



request


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING -The county commis-
sion rescinded an "adversarial" public
records request it submitted to the
Clerk of Courts.
Assistant County Administrator
Rick Helms submitted the two-page
request Jan. 10 on Board of County
Commissioners letterhead, asking
Clerk L.E. "Luke" Brooker to provide
documents ranging from timelines of
the Highlands County Library System
internal audit to proof of the audit
staff's education and training.
"The clerk is most disappointed by
the adversarial tone of the records
request," clerk attorney James V.
Lobozzo Jr. said in a Jan. 12 letter
addressed individually to each com-
missioner. "It is considered to be an
attempt to divert the focus concerning
the library audit from the facts found
in the clerk's report."
Lobozzo said the request signed
by Helms on behalf of the board with-
out its approval appeared to be a
thinly-veiled attempt to audit the
auditors.
During the Jan. 17 public hearing
on the library audit, Commissioner
Barbara Stewart raised the issue, ask-
,,ing if Helms ..hd he Lauthorits to
make such a request without the
board's knowledge or approval.
On Stewart's motion, the commis-
sioners voted 5-0 to direct administra-
tor Carl Cool to formally withdraw
the request.
The morning of Jan. 18, Brooker
said Cool formally rescinded the pub-
lic records request.
Records requested
Helms had asked for:
A copy of any timelines devel-
oped for the internal audit of the
county library system, including any
revisions and correspondence regard-
ing those changes;
SA list of education, training and
certifications of the audit staff,
including senior director of business
services Bob Jamison, in the field of
auditing or attestation engagements.
A list of continuing professional
education credits earned in the past
two years in audit standards, method-
ology, accounting principles, assess-
ment of internal controls, principles
of management, information systems
management, audit sampling, finan-
cial statement analysis, evaluation
design and data analysis;
Documents representing the
audit team's most recent peer review
of its own operations;
A list of internal audits per-
formed by the current staff and each
member's level of participation;

They're not homeless, but the gentlemen lounging in front of a convenience store in an Avon Park neighborhood gave homeless sur-
veyor Gall Prichard (right) some leads where she might find the less fortunate congregating.




The homeless count


By KEVIN J SHUTT
News-Sun
AVON PARK By midmorning
Wednesday, the homeless were difficult
to locate.
Avon Park counters Gail Prichard. of
Sebring, and JuaAita Escobedo, of
Wauchula, surmised that the homeless
may have been working, simply out of
sight or wandering around elsewhere
away from their normal haunts.
An overcast sky that threatened rain
all morning and kept the daytime high to
about 60 degrees might have contributed
to the apparent lack of homeless.
Outreach case managers for the
Central Florida Health Care and
Highlands County Coalition for the
Homeless volunteers, Prichard and
Escobedo by day's end laid eyes on only
two homeless women.
One already was in a program that
provides shelter and training while
requiring gainful employment or con-
structive productivity. The other was
homeless two weeks before receiving
help with rent and utilities so she and her
son could move into an apartment.
They were counted, surveyed and
given toiletry packs. The latter received
two blankets.
"Usually the homeless will have a
bicycle with their baskets full of stuff,
their most prized possessions" Prichard
said, explaining how to differentiate
between them and loiterers. "People
hanging out will just have their hands in
their pockets, looking around."
The women, who counted Avon
Park's homeless while 10 other people
beat the streets in Sebring and Lake
Placid, went first to agencies such as
Redlands Christian Migrant Association
and the Church Service Center for inside

information.
"They have their finger on the pulse
of these neighborhoods," Prichard said.
"My strategyis to visit all of the agen-
cies and get their ideas."
Later, she and Escobedo drove
through the subsidized housing neigh-
borhood off of Lake Tulane and other
known homeless hangouts, they visited a
place known as "The Beachfront" and
looked for signs of habitation at the
abandoned water treatment plant north
of Avon Park near Lake Damon.
There were no homeless to be count-
ed.
"Most know somebody they can go to
if they absolutely need help, like to get
out of the rain," Prichard said, explain-
ing that many are either over- or under-
medicated. "Most of the truly homeless
don't want to help themselves up."
While at Redlands, director Lisa
Pough identified several families total-
ing 19 homeless individuals, even


though they were staving w ith families
- including a woman and her seven
children living in a two-bedroom home
with the ooman's mother.
The temporary and volatile nature of
Luch .arrangements fits with the broad
defimntron- of homelessness. explained
Homeless Coalition executive director -
Richard Reinhardt.
"We're trying to get a snapshot for
this particular week," he said. "Even if
somebody is getting evicted in the next
seven days, we count them."'
Just after stepping out of the Church
Serl ices Center. Escobedo and Prichard
w ere summoned by its director William
Stephenson to speak with Terri Rametta,
who recently moved here from Miami to
help her disabled son.
But, they were evicted. she said, even
though he was paying his rent.
Rametta's aunt referred her to the
ServicesCenter and she walked out
'ednesda. morning with an apartment
"Up to three minutes ago," Rametta
said, when Prichard asked if she was
homeless.
But, because she wouldn't move into
'the apartment for another week, she was
counted, even though she's currently
staying with her aunt.
Stephenson helped Rametta with her
security deposit and utilities.
Government funding through grants
derived from taxpayers is based upon the
numbers more homeless means more
money for the agencies .to provide the
services, which range from emergency
overnight shelters to food banks.
"We're subject to audit," Reinhardt
said, when asked about the potential for
inflated numbers to maintain funding
levels. "We keep all of our records for a

LAKE PLACID A group of Placid Lakes homeowners are
demanding immediate action against residents of a Habitat for
Humanity house in their neighborhood
The residents say their properties have been vandalized and their
lives have been threatened. The group spoke to the Habitat for
Humanity board of directors at their Tuesday afternoon meeting
about the situation, which the Habitat board is now investigating.

'Somebody is going to get hurt'
Scott and Terry Daisey moved into the Placid takes neighbor-

But the situation has progressively gotten much worse since
then. Scott Daisey describes his current living situation as a "night-

SEBRING The United
Way of Central Florida -
Highlands County is falling
short of its goal for 2006 and
needs the community to kick
the final point.
The local advisory board
established a goal of $500,000
to be able to fund programs
within 19 different agencies
serving Highlands County.
"After reviewing the cam-
paign status, we have deter-
mined that we are 20 percent
short of goal," Sharon
Gunthorp, Highlands County's
campaign chairperson, said. "In
order to meet the ever-increas-
ing needs of our partner agen-
cies, we are asking the commu-
nity to join us in making a dif-
ference by becoming a United
Way contributor."
The local United Way is ask-
ing individuals to help by clip-
ping out the donation form
adjacent to this story and mail it
and a check made payable to
United Way of Central Florida -
Highlands County. The dead-
line to make a donation to help
with the 2006 campaign is
Wednesday, Feb. 21. Donations
received after that time will be
credited to the 2007 campaign.
Agencies such as the
Children's Services Founda-
tion, American Red Cross,
Alpha-Omega Crisis Center,

& Family Alternatives, Ridge

Center, Heartland Horses &

Cancer Society, Boy Scouts -
Gulf Ridge Council, Girl
Scouts Gulfcoast of Florida,
Children's Home Society, Nu-
Hope Elder Care Services Inc.
and Highlands County Family
YMCA depend on funding
through United Way to help
provide necessary services and
programs for the people they
serve in this county.
"As we work to complete this
year's campaign, we are faced
with the reality that our results
are not what we had hoped they
would be," Shareen Childs,
Highlands County area director,


Treasure hunt for a good cause


said. "Although many of us
have met with new or increased
financial obligations this year,
there are still many in our com-
munity who live with crisis sit-
uations daily."
Childs indicated that there
have been several circum-
stances that have caused contri-
butions to drop. She said the
community as a whole has been
faced with a huge increase in
property taxes and homeowners
insurance, which has resulted in
individuals and businesses to
cut back on their donations.
Childs also said some compa-
nies are decreasing benefits
being offered to their employ-
ees and this has caused a hard-
ship on this year's campaign.
Regardless of the financial
burdens, Childs said the com-


munity still believes in the
United Way mission.
"Obviously people are confi-
dent in the United Way and the
lives we are able to impact,"
Childs said.
Each year Highlands County
has been able to exceed its goal
and gradually increase it for the
following year. Last year,
United Way in Highlands
County set a goal of $465,000
and went beyond that by raising
$507,000. The goal amount is
increased every year because
the demands from the agencies
are growing each year.
Childs explained that the
Highlands County United Way
Community Investment Team
met this week and has been
faced with the challenge of fig-


during out how to divide the
funds to the appropriate pro-
grams.
Steve New, of Florida
Hospital, was once again voted
as chairperson of the
Community Investment Team
with Dan McAuliff, of South
Florida Community College,
serving as vice chairperson.
New emphasized during the last
advisory board meeting
Wednesday that there is a need
for more volunteers to serve on
his committee. Call 453-3401
to help.
The advisory board also
voted Wednesday on accepting
this year's Highlands County
advisory board chairperson to
be Bill Benton and the cam-
paign chairperson will be Jeff
Roth.

ner starting at 6:30.

update set
Special to the News-Sun
A program entitled "From
Dreams to Reality: Kissimmee
River Restoration, Phase 1"
will be presented by the project
director, Raul Pellegrino, for
the annual meeting of a watch
dog group, ROAR, Saturday at
8:30 a.m. at Riverwoods Field
Lab on U.S. 98 in eastern
Highlands County.
Realists Opposing Alleged
Restoration Inc., organized a
dozen years ago by waterfront
residents, government officials,
area ranchers and farmers and
other interested citizens meets
annually in late January to
determine its future.
President Jan Bussell said
the group has maintained a
connection with the South
Florida Water Management
District over the years to keep
its membership of several hun-
dred about the state updated on
the progress of the world
famous river restoration and its
effect on residents.
"We are making history
again this year by the same
project manager returning three
years in a row," he said.
Bussell is a property owner
in one of the last small commu-
nities affected by the huge, $10
billion project, River Acres.
Hosted this year by the
Riverwood lab director Loisa
Kerwin of Avon Park, ROAR
members will hold the annual
business meeting and election
of officers at a 9:30 a.m. board
meeting.
Program and business ses-
sion will follow at 10 a.m.
Pellegrino will show a video,
including aerials of the huge
construction project; and
answer questions from the
group.
At 11 a.m., the group will
board the Kissimmee Explorer
to tour the river learning about
the environmental side of the
world's largest restoration proj-
ect, Kerwin said.
The tour will include three
habitats of the river-the historic
Riverwoods Run, the channel-
ized C-38 canal and the
restored river. The field lab is
responsible for conducting bird
surveys, field observations,
traveling through the S65-C
lock and cruising through the
restored river area as a finale.
Boat participants should
bring their own lunch; water
will be provided, Kerwin said.

CONTROL
Continued from 1A
porch lights on all night to feel
safe.
In response to the escalating
threats Scott and Terry Daisey
obtained a letter of trespass
against Cathy Cardenas, owner
of the Habitat house, and her
seven children. Cathy Cardenas
received the letter Dec. 15 and
tore it up in the face of process
server James Duffy, according
to Duffy's notarized Return of
Process Service report.
The Highlands County
Sheriff's Office, which has
jurisdiction in the area, has 44
separate records filed on calls
involving the Launch Avenue
property. The complaints range
from juvenile trouble and noise
complaints to auto theft, and
several of them came from
Cathy Cardenas and her chil-
dren.
Arrest reports involving two
of Cathy Cardenas' kids are also
in the public record, including
an incident of assaulting an offi-
cer at Lake Placid High School
in September that landed 15-
year-old Diana Cardenas in
juvenile detention.
Cathy Cardenas could not be
reached for comment.
At Tuesday's. Habitat board
meeting, Tom and Peggy
Nemeth talked about their son
Tommy, who is currently serv-
ing time at the Polk Regional
Juvenile Detention Center in
Bartow because, they say, he
was "corrupted" by the
Cardenas family. The Nemeths
also filed a letter of trespass
against the Cardenas family
after Peggy Nemeth reportedly
discovered Diana Cardenas was
sneaking into their house.
Neighborhood resident Ron
Jones, who as a member of the
Secret Service protected former
presidents Richard Nixon and
Gerald Ford, tearfully implored
the Habitat board to take action.

auditors asked the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office and/or

releasing internal audit infor-

investigation;
Correspondence from any

findings that Florida Statutes
were violated;
A list of computers from
which the audit staff down-
loaded and printed screen shots
of pornographic Web sites con-
tained in the sealed portion of
the library audit final report.
Nothing precludes Helms
from submitting the same
request as a private citizen.
Cool reinstated
Cool's qualifications, and his
reporting thereof, came under
fire in 1996 when questions sur-
faced Why was he fined
$1,000 in 1993? Why was his
land surveying license revoked
in 1995? Why did he perform
professional engineering work
without active state or county
occupational licenses?
He was suspended with pay
for a week in January 1996.
Then-assistant administrator
Tom Portz filled in until Cool
was reinstated during a special
meeting of the commissioners
Jan. 30, 1996.
The state's Department of
Business and Professional
Regulations in 1993 fined Cool
$1,000 for failing to prove that
he had properly completed con-
tinuing education requirements
for his surveyor license renew-
al.
During a 1991 audit of his
license, the state learned that
Cool hadn't attended a required
six-hour course, which the
county paid for.
Cool told the commission
that he missed the class because
of work, but he had signed an
affidavit of eligibility that
effectively told the regulating
agency that he completed all
requirements to renew his
license.
During his hearing before the

place before something is
done?"
Terry Daisey, who served
two tours of duty in Vietnam,
said he, his wife, and many in
the neighborhood have reached

their breaking points.
"It's not that we have any-
thing against Habitat," Terry
Daisey said. "We think it's a
wonderful organization. The
family is tearing Habitat's good
name down.
"I'm just a citizen who's fed
up," Terry Daisey said. "We just
cannot accept this anymore.
Somebody is going to get hurt."

Exploring options
Jane Breylihger, executive
director -f Habitat for
Humanity, said issues concern-
ing the Cardenas property was
first brought to her attention in
2004. But Breylinger acknowl-
edged the situation has gotten
much worse since then.
"What we're doing right now
is gathering information,"
Breylinger said, "and the neigh-
bors' information is definitely
part of that picture. We're look-
ing at the whole scenario. To
me, it sounds like the neighbors
are a lot more concerned about
safety, which has not been an
issue in the past."
At Tuesday's board meeting,
Breylinger told the neighbors
that Habitat did not have the
authority to deal with safety
issues.
However, what the neighbors
told the Habitat board Tuesday
"definitely has an impact in the
fact that we feel like maybe
that's not a successful home-
owner situation. But we won't
know until we've looked at
everything, and what we can
and can't do legally definitely
has an impact."
Breylinger also said her con-
cerns are wider than the house.


commissioners in 1996, he said
he had not knowingly mislead
the state, according to a News-
Sun report of the meeting.
"Some of the mistakes he
made are silly," then-commis-
sioner Jeri Canale had said of
Cool's alleged falsification of
documents on county letter-
heads. "Some of them really do
reflect back on the county."
Double standard
Canale and then-commis-
sioner J.D. Barrett voted
against the motion that reinstat-
ed Cool. Current chairman C.
Guy Maxcy, former chair-
woman Doris Gentry and for-
mer'cbtmissioner James Gose
voted to reinstate Cool.
"I'm just afraid of the mes-
sage sent out to the citizens of
Highlands County," Barrett told
the News-Sun afterward. "If
you did good, then violate the
law, it's OK. Do we have a set
of double standards in the coun-
ty? All I'm saying is everyone
should live by the same rules
and law. Three county commis-
sioners seem to disagree with
that."
But, Cool wasn't without his
supporters.
Bert Harris III, attorney for
the town of Lake Placid, pre-
sented the commission with a
65-signature petition backing
Cool and said Canale should
have listened to the "good ol'
boys" who knew Cool, the
News-Sun reported.';


'Let's be fair to the whole com-

munity, including the family. You

don't want to put them on the

street.'
JANE BREYLINGER, Habitat for Humanity executive director


"Habitat's not just in it for
the house or the money," she
said. "We're in it for the family,
and we want to help them suc-
ceed, if they're willing to work
at it themselves."
The Habitat board will be
spending the next two weeks
fully investigating the situation
and the options they can pursue,
Breylinger said. They will then
come back to Breylinger at a
special meeting and instruct her
on what happens next.
Breylinger said a situation
like the one in Placid Lakes has
not happened before locally.
"This is the first one that's
been this extreme, definitely,"
Breylinger said. "We've had
nothing where the neighbors are
upset with people in the house."
But not all the feelings
toward the Cardenas house is
negative in the neighborhood,
Breylinger said.
"Neighbors have expressed
concern about the situation
because they're concerned
about the family," she said.
"They wanted us to know they
have no issues with the family."
Breylinger said Cathy
Cardenas worked very hard
when the house was being built
in 1997. She had already per-
formed her required hours of
"sweat equity" necessary to
receive a house, Breylinger
said, but her work didn't stop
there.
"Cathy had worked a lot on
her house, even though she had
in her 400 hours," Breylinger
said. "We went to do her home
and she was still out there
working on her house, and she


Jim Brooks, a former county
employee who now chairs the
county planning and zoning
board, had said the charges
against Cool "don't amount to a
hill of beans."
The chamber, smaller then,
overflowed with people wear-
ing "I SUPPORT CARL" but-
tons.
"Carl said he don't need no
stinking license," Harris had
said. "The real issue today is
Preston Colby. You've investi-
gated the wrong man. You're
about to run off one of the best
administrators in the country.
I'm going to be shocked if the
man stays."
According to news reports of
that era, "likely candidate for
commissioner" Preston Colby
instigated the affair when he
submitted the Business and
Professional Regulations sanc-
tion to the Highlands commis-
sioners.
Recently, Colby has filed
lawsuits against Cool and the
commissioners for allegedly
violating the county's own ordi-
nances in its erection of signs
and state statutes in failing to
provide public records.
County attorney Ross
MacBeth has filed the county's
legal response, which will be
reported by the News-Sun at a
later date.
Colby has also asked the
sheriff to investigate the former
sale of tarps at the county land-
fill.

Hardee County (one of six
counties in Florida's Heartland
Rural Consortia for the
Homeless) experienced a 500
percent increase in homeless-
ness after the hurricanes of
2004-2005.
"That was a leading contrib-
utor in our area," Reinhardt
said, explaining that the data is
still coming in and wouldn't be
finalized until mid-February,
when it will be forwarded to the
state.
This year's count is expected
to be lower than last year's, he
said.
Escobedo and Prichard
counted two homeless women
themselves and identified a
total of about 25 via their
agency visits, where they left
surveys to be filled out later.
From those raw numbers,
Reinhardt said he's able to
extrapolate Avon Park's home-

based on the homeless defini-

Habitat would have to fore-

they could sell it, and foreclo-

could exercise. Cathy Cardenas
also has the right to sell the

Famed muralist teaches mural painting


By PATRICIA C. POND
News Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID
Nationally-known mural artist Keith Goodson is
teaching mural painting to two groups of
Elderhostel participants at the Lake Placid
campus of South Florida Community College this
year.
Elderhostel is an international travel and learning
organization for seniors. SFCC hosts several of these
groups every year, each with a focus on a different
area of interest.
While most of the Elderhostel groups have always
toured the Lake Placid murals as part of their pro-
grams, this is the first time one entire session has been
devoted to actually producing one.
Becky Rousch, director of Community Education at
SFCC's Highlands Campus, got the idea during con-
versations with members of the Mural Society, who
described how beneficial the murals have been to
Lake Placid.
"I thought others might be interested in developing
a mural project in their own towns, and got the idea to
have a group find out what is involved in designing
and creating a mural. What better way to do that than
to actually come in and paint a mural?" Rousch said.
She wrote a proposal for such a theme to
Elderhostel, and two sessions were offered. Then she
contacted Goodson, who is a graduate of SFCC cur-
rently residing in Pensacola.
The famous muralist was intrigued because he had
never tried to teach the process. He agreed, telling her
that he would be interested in learning how it works
with a class.
Goodson's murals are well known in Highlands
County, most notably "Cracker Trail Cattle Drive,"
one of the largest murals in Lake Placid, completed in
1994. This is the largest representation of the cattle
industry east of the Mississippi.
He also painted "Bassin," which won first place
in a national competition and "Istokpoga," plus
several others.
Goodson's most recent commission in this area is
the stunning mural painted around the SFCC cooling
tower in the center of the Highlands Campus in Avon
Park. Goodson said the tower project was one of his
most challenging designs because he had to design a
mural covering a continuous wall wrapped around a
circular tower.
The first session of "All About Murals" was com-
pleted last week, with participants working for five
days-in the art department of the college's-Lake Placid
campus. They learned how to choose a theme and

work out the perspective for a large-scale design. The
mini-mural rendered on a 5-foot by 7-foot, canvas
- was divided into sections and each student was
assigned one section.
During the classes, Goodson taught color, concept
and composition, and students practiced on their own
sketch pads. Then they created the mural, each paint-
ing his or her own assigned portion under Goodson's
guidance.
Friday morning, after finishing touches, they held
the unveiling of the completed work. They also left
with an understanding of the process of creating pub-
lic art.
The Elderhostel participants were housed at the
newly-renovated Lake Placid Conference Center
because their studies and activities took place in and
around the town. When not in the classroom, they
enjoyed a full program of activities including a per-
formance by the Cracker Cowboy Poet, a back porch
hoedown with a bluegrass-band, and a trip LO:

depression. She educated the
audience that blues are more
often short lived and that
depression is longer lasting.
Retirement is one of the biggest
stressors that happen to seniors.
She pointed out that communi-
cation reduces holiday stress, as
well as exercise, having a sup-
port system of friends and fam-
ily and journaling their feel-
ings. Laughter always has a
positive effect on the immune
systems and keeping a gratitude
list is very beneficial in stress
reduction. Her final advice was
to "change your mind and that
will change your life."
No meeting was set in

Department of Children and
Families will be speaking

Time to make good

"I do hope you do the right thing for Highlands
County."
Words of wisdom.
County Administrator Carl Cool spoke those strong
and forward-thinking words during a special meeting of
the county commissioners on Jan. 30, 1996, when he was
investigated for falsification of county time sheets and
operating under an invalid surveyor's license.
With winks and nods, then-chairwoman Doris Gentry
with James Gose and C. Guy Maxcy gave Cool their vote
of confidence. Commissioners J.D. Barrett and Jeri
Canale voted against the motion that reinstated Cool
after a week-long suspension with pay. At least one com-
missioner was ready to fire Cool.
In their 3-2 vote, the 1996 Highlands County commis-
sioners did what they felt was the right thing for this
county.
Since then, Cool has come under fire for his reluctance
to cooperate with the 2000 audit of the Emergency
Medical System and the 2005-2006 audit of the
Highlands County Library System.
Maxcy, who voted to keep Cool 11 years ago, said Jan.
10 during the library audit public hearing, "We as com-
munity leaders need to step up ... and make good."
Yes, Maxcy you need to step up. Commissioner
Barbara Stewart, you need to step up. Commissioner
Don Bates, welcome to the jungle, step up.
Commissioner Edgar Stokes, step up, please.
Commissioner Andrew Jackson, we know it's in you,
step up.
The motion that passed 5-0 calling for a "sit down"
meeting between county staff and the clerk's office was
too little, but it's not too late. It's time to make good,
right Maxcy?
"I don't see how the other commissioners can ignore
the facts and conclusions of law that there was a viola-
tion of Florida statutes," Barrett told the News-Sun in
1996 after the board reinstated Cool.
The Highlands County Sheriff's Office found no crim-
inal wrongdoing in Cool's management of the library.
However, the spirit of Barrett's 11-year-old statement
stands.
As of the Jan. 10 library aidit public hearing, Maxcy
and Stokes had not laid eyes on the backup data in the
Clerk of Courts' office. Is this what the taxpayers of
Highlands County voted for when they re-elected these
commissioners?
Their mandate certainly was not, "Ignore the facts."
Because Maxcy and Stokes failed to do their home-
work, the deadline was pushed back to Jan. 30. Points
should be taken off for tardiness.
"It's been said," Stokes said Jan. 10, agreeing with the
commissioner comments that preceded his. But, how
would he know if he hasn't seen the backup? How does
he know whether Bates, Jackson or Stewart were on tar-
get?
"The number of adverse findings of the audit is 63,"
Clerk of Courts L.E. "Luke" Brooker said in an audit
executive summary. "This number is inordinately high
compared to ... billing audits conducted in other counties,
which ranged from eight to 20 findings upon comple-
tion."
If you've followed the library audit, you might be
quick to point out that there were only 61 findings. You
are correct, move to the head of the class.
The Brooker quote above is from the EMS audit of
2000, during which "some board staff members were
resistant to the audit effort and adversarial with audit
staff, which resulted in delays and counter-productively."
Sound familiar? It shouldn't. But, unfortunately for the
taxpayer, it is too familiar. For the record, internal audi-
tors Mary Wilson and Heather Woods were not members
of the team yet.
Members of the Highlands County public have been
grumbling for Cool's resignation. Of course, other
staunchly defend him.
To be fair, why would anybody expect Cool to resign?
According to a January 1996 News-Sun story, Cool's
contract specified that if he voluntarily left he'd receive
nothing; if he is dismissed without cause, he would
receive a. lump sum payment equal to six months of his
base pay plus longevity; and, if he's terminated for cause
he is not compensated.
Maybe, it's time for a new slogan WWCD What
Would Cool Do?
"I'll be pushing for a system that's fair to all," Maxcy
said during the library audit hearing.
What is fair, chairman? What is your vision for
Highlands County, Chairman Maxcy?
"Where there is no vision, Proverbs tell us, the people
perish," Cool said Jan. 30, 1996.

Beautiful from the inside out


1 once watched a television
movie that centered on some
teenagers and their relation-
ships. One young man was
totally infatuated with the most
beautiful girl he had ever seen.
Fashionably dressed at all
times, she chose clothing that
would entice the eyes of males
and toy with their affections -
concerned only with her con-
quests.
Meanwhile, another lovely,
modest beauty with a deeply
caring heart longed for the
young man to notice her as
more than a friend. But, alas, he
was caught up fantasizing about
dating the other girl.
Long story short, he finally
dated her only to find out that
all she cared about was enticing
him and talking about herself
and her fashions. He finally
came to his senses realizing that
he missed his other female
friend and really cared deeply
about her. But, by this time she
was skeptical and questioned
his sincerity.
In assuring her that he had


Federal judges

not worth more
Editor:
Recently our Chief Justice,
John Roberts, said that
Congress must drastically
increase the pay of federal
judges. Judges are leaving for
private practice because of the
pay gap.
One of the strange things
about the fantasy world of tele-
vision is that on TV, judges are
polite. In the real world, judges
very often are not.
Let me tell you about some-
thing I saw when I happened to
be in a federal bankruptcy
court, as a creditor. A woman
had been summoned for not
having insurance on her house.
The mortgage holder, a bank,
objected. I'm not really sure
how this winds up in bankrupt-
cy court but I saw it happen.
The woman was not repre-
sented by an attorney and the
judge did not ask her whether
the bank's claim was true or
whether she had a defense. He
tore into her like an attack dog.
After snarling at her for 15
minutes, he realizedthat he had
another hearing coming up. He
concluded his tirade by saying
that he needed more time to
devote to the matter and
ordered her to come back to be
screamed at some more.
I don't believe that this is
unusual.
Federal judges have wrecked
our legal system, giving the
United States what is probably
the slowest and most compli-
cated legal system in the world.
They have worked for decades
to whittle away the power of
juries. They use any excuse to
obstruct capital punishment.
I have a counter-offer for
Chief Justice Roberts. In my
experience, the 15-year-olds
who take orders at fast food
restaurants could give lessons
in politeness to our judges. If
federal judges can learn to be
as polite as the 15-year-old
employees, I think we should
be willing to pay them 20 per-
cent of what they make now. I
don't see how they deserve
more.

Officials need to

explain things

Editor:
I listened to President Bush's
State of the Union Address. I
thought it was great.
But I was paying attention to
Rep. Nancy Pelosi as Fox
News brought across the air-
waves that the law that was
passed in the House in the first
100 hours dealing with mini-
mum wage had one flaw.
It seems a company from
Rep. Pelosi's district employ-
ees in this area many people,
and was noted, this area would
P..not be under the federal law, as
it would destroy their economy
of the area, so therefore would
not come under the federal law
on the new minimum wage.
When it was brought to her
attention, Pelosi claimed it


been wrong to pur-
sue the other girl at
all, he commented
that you can only
look for so long. The
deep substance of a
mutually caring rela-
tionship was not
there.
I was glad to see
that the outcome of
this movie celebrat-
ed love born of

admiration. and
unselfishness; espe-
cially since the hype of appear-
ance -most of it immodest
today is prevalent. Clothing
is designed to barely cover and
then to be strategically crafted
to show off tattoos in areas of
the body that used to be con-
cealed not exposed.
As our young people buy into
advertising deceptions, their
modesty is compromised.
Modest behavior touches all
areas of life. It exhibits humili-
ty in one's achievements and
abilities. It doesn't put oneself


forward. And, it is
expressed in appropri-
ate dress that doesn't
leave room for inde-
cency.
This sense of mod-
esty is inherent in
females and, I
believe, was given by
God to protect her and
help her to remain
pure. But, in today's
society where so
many barriers have


come down, that pro-
tective covering given
a girl is being torn to shreds.
But, that's what I love about
the Bible. Its changelessness is
appropriate for all times
because its wisdom is timeless.
Second Peter 3: 3 and 4 in "The
Message" addresses this issue
by saying, "What matters is not
your outer appearance the
styling of your hair, the jewelry
you wear, the cut of your
clothes but your inner dispo-
sition. Cultivate inner beauty,
the gentle, gracious kind that
God delights in."


I long for young girls to get
in touch with their deep sense
of modesty once again so that
they will be appreciated for the
vibrant beauties they are as
individuals. As they do this and
develop their gifts and talents,
life will be fulfilling.
Fashionable, appropriate dress
will have its proper place as
they participate in school,
careers and relationships.
But modesty must be mod-
eled at home first in attitudes
as well as clothing. Perhaps
that's happening as I've been
noticing more young ladies who
are wearing clothing that is
fashionable, yet modest. I
applaud them and hope their
influence will impact others.
They are in keeping with the
times, but the times are not dic-
tating their propriety. They're
beautiful from the inside out.

would be corrected, but it has
not been corrected as yet.
Now, who from that compa-
ny had lobbyists that told
Pelosi that if that area was
included in the legislation that
they would move the business
elsewhere, and she bowed
down to the lobbyist and
excluded one area from the fed-
eral minimum wage law.
If it was not for Fox News no
one would have known a thing
about it. Come on you
Democrats who got elected
because Republicans were sup-
pose to be corrupt, you allowed
the leader of the House, who
can one day become president,
bow down to lobbyists to leave
one area out of the legislation
or the company moves its busi-
ness elsewhere.
That is not corruption?
I hope our newly elected
House of Representative, who
is a Democrat, for the Sebring
area will reply to this paper ...
what his definition of corrup-
tion is in dealing with elected
officials.
And our democratic senator
if he is going to see when that
legislation comes before the
senate that they include this
area in Pelosi's district so the
federal law in adding income to
those under minimum wage ...
and.I hope he addresses the
issue in this newspaper.
Also in listening to Hillary
Clinton from her return from
Iraq, she claimed several law-
makers wrote to President Bush
to send more troops to
Afghanistan. Either she was not
paying attention when during
her husband's President


Clinton's term of office he put
our United States troops under.
the United Nations fight in
Afghanistan. Afghanistan is not
a United States war, it is a
United Nations war, and they
do not wear the same uniform
colors as our regular service-
men.
It also is noted that many
countries who promised to send
troops to fight only sent those
over there that never carried a
gun.
I believe she is on the Senate
Armed Forces committee and
she.does not know her wars.
I doubt that you will see that
listed in any newspaper.
Now Hillary wants to be
president, and she does not
know the difference between
President Bush's war in Iraq
and the United Nations war in
Afghanistan.
Well all she has to know is
to see that the uniforms in Iraq
are United States are red, white
and blue, and the Uniforms in
Afghanistan are United Nations
colors.

Kindness is the

right kind of oil
Editor:
"In as much as ye have done
it unto the least of them ye have
done it unto me." Matthew
25:40
A couple of weeks ago I
went in Publix to purchase a
small package of potato chips. I


was given so much chocolate
for Christmas, I needed some-
thing salty.
The change purse on my
wallet has a very small opening
making it difficult to get
change out. Rather than hold up
the line at the cashier, I stood in
the aisle by the potato chips to
get out the correct change.
A very attractive young lady
with beautiful long black hair
stopped and asked me if I need-
ed money to pay for my gro-
ceries. I told her no, I was fine
and thanked her. She said "are
you sure?" I thanked her again
and told her how sweet and
kind she was, that I was just
trying to get the change out so I
wouldn't hold up the line.
What a thoughtful thing for a
stranger to offer to do. I wish I
had asked her her name.
A few days later I was in
Wal-Mart. As I was trying to
take items out of the basket, the
lady in line behind me walked
over and said "let me help
you." I thanked her and was
grateful for her help. I have
limited mobility of my right
arm, which makes it difficult to
lift heavy items.
I really appreciate so many
people who are willing to lend
-a helping hand, especially to
strangers.
Sebring has so many of these
folk and this is only two of the
many acts of kindness I often
receive. We love and appreciate
each one of them.
Kindness is the oil that takes
the friction out of life.

Today in history
At the Web site www.
scopesys.com/anyday, you
can put in a day and year
and find out whose birthdays
and what events occurred on
that day.
Did you know Jan. 26 was
the groundbreaking ceremo-
ny for Disneyland in 1954,
53 years ago (http://disney
land.disney.go.com)? I bet
you didn't remember that in
1960, Pete Rozelle was
elected NFL commissioner
on the 23rd ballot. Elvis
Presley's "Are You
Lonesome Tonight" hit num-
ber one in 1961 (www.
elvis.com).
In 1972, stewardess Vesna
Vulovic survives a 10,160
meters fall without a para-
chute. In 1979, "The Dukes
of Hazzard" was brought to
CBS television. In 1988, to
celebrate Australia's 200th
anniversary, there was a
parade of tall ships in
Sydney Harbor www.cityof
sydney.nsw.gov.au.
My favorite stage play,
"Phantom of the Opera"
opened at Majestic Theater
in New York City, N.Y. in
1988 and more information
can be found at www.new
yorkcitytheatre.com/the
aters/majestictheater/the
aterhtml. On Jan. 9, 2006,
"Phantom of the Opera"
overtook "CATS" to become
the longest running show in
the history of Broadway
with more than 7,486 per-
formances (in 17 years).
Buddy Holly's first formal
recording session occurred
today in 1956 (www.buddy
holly.com), and in 1939,
filming began on "Gone
With the Wind" (www.
franklymydear.com/history).
Perhaps one of the most
important events with a
tremendous downstream of
influence occurred today in
1926, when television was
first demonstrated by John
L. Bairdin London.
One of the most beautiful
natural wonders in our coun-
try was established as a park
in 1915, Rocky Mountain
National Park, Colorado
(http://home.nps.gov/appli
cations/parksearch/state. cfm
?st=co). If you look at this
site, also take a look at the
Black Canyon of the
Gunnison. When my girl-
friend and I traveled through
the area a few years ago, we
stopped for lunch at a little
roadside diner. When I asked
if a detour trip to the Canyon
was worth our time, the pro-
prietor replied, "We don't
tell people about it so we
can keep it beautiful and nat-
ural. We think it's better than
the Grand Canyon." I would
have to agree with her.
While you're there, click on
Mesa Verde (www.nps.
gov/meve) to see pictures of
the Pueblo cliff dwellings.
If you want to feel pros-
perous, click over to http:
//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Culli
nan_Diamond and take a
look at the largest gem-qual-
ity diamond ever found
(1905), weighing in at 3,106
or about 1 1/3 pounds.
Another diamond, found in
Brazil and weighing more
than 3,600 carats, was not of
gem quality, and therefore,
does not qualify for the dis-
tinction. Cullinan I and II,
two of the 105 stones cut
from the Cullinan Diamond,
are part of the British Crown
Jewels. When the jeweler
split the stone into two per-
fect halves, he fainted dead
away. For an in-depth color
exploration of the Crown
Jewels, check out

Set designer



not retiring;



just fading into



background

By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Former set designer Donald Newby,
82, can't seem to sit still even though his health has
caused him to slow down.
After living in Winter Haven for 22 years, Newby
recently relocated to Sebring. Although he isn't as
active physically, mentally he's aglow.
After discharge from service after World War II, he
entered the Rochester Institute of Technology, where
he studied interior design and earned a certificate to
teach art. Previously he'd been a school teacher of art
and theatre in Nicaragua, Venezuela and Panama.
Besides an actor-director-designer, he owned and
operated Newmark Scenic for 10 years, supplying
Cypress Garden's Ice Show with scenery plus other
venues all over the country. A winner of numerous
awards for set designs, he rented scenic backdrops to
community theaters, dance companies and production
companies.
In Winter Haven he became involved in theater. He
built sets for Patterson Studios, a local TV and film
production company and also Universal Studios. He
has worked on three films, "Spring," "Deadly
Innocence" and "Dream Trap." He also worked with
Central Florida Development Council and the Winter
Haven Chamber of Commerce.
Newby's previous experience was with Act 4
Players in Winter Haven. "Now I'm retired and
involved with Highlands Little Theatre with a new
group called the Readers, Theatre. We call ourselves
the Glad Hatters. We offer a 45-minute program free
to different organizations. We give a reading and per-
form skits with a happy and humorous note. People
can call the theatre and schedule a daytime or evening
presentation. There's a dozen people participating and
it changes constantly. This was always popular in Polk
County with the churches, assisted living centers, etc,"
Newby said.
Recently Newby helped create the original design
for "The Cemetery Club" at HLT. "I only supervised
because I can't physically get down and do what I
used to," Newby said. Five years ago he suffered a
heart attack and open heart surgery. "It knocked me
for a loop," Newby said. He obviously loves being
involved and sharing his expertise.
For 57 years Newby has been a Baha'i faith mem-
ber, which was a reason for so many of his travels.
They believe that all great religions of the world are
the development of a different chapter of the same
religion. Begun 160 years ago in Persia, it was
designed this way in order to teach lessons in different
areas of the world. Baha'i means followers of the
glory (baha). Baha'u'llah, whose name means glory of
God, is the founder of the Baha'i religion. After
Baha'u'llah spent 40 years as a religious prisoner of
the Muslims, his final years were in Akaha (now
Israel) across from Haifa where the international
Baha'i center is now located. Because there is no pro-
fessional clergy, all members are called to assist wher-
ever there is a need.
"I don't paint anymore except on 18 by 48 back-
drops," Newby said. At Old Town in Kissimmee, he
designed the permanent haunted house. He also
designed and painted the interior of Piiocchio's
Puppet Theatre in Orlando. "I now like to draw and
make abstract stitchery. Our HLT Readers' Group
meets every Tuesday afternoon and it's a great way to
be involved in this community. Children are naturally
imaginative, but most adults either lose that gift or are

too busy to let their imaginations wander far. This
helps," Newby said.
Although Newby's a workaholic, he can't physical-
ly work 16 to 18 hour days like he used to, nor can he
'crawl around on the floor to work on sets. "I can't
imagine sitting down and doing nothing. There's a
wealth of local talent here. This is a great way to
show our work, perform, be seen and provide enter-
tainment for others," Newby said.


"Although I am now truly retired again, I still
have greasepaint in my veins. Perhaps you can say old
set designers never retire, they merely fade into the
background," Newby said.

One Garden' is stitchery art created by Donald Newby.

Church women learn about frequent scams
LAKE PLACID Highlands County Sheriff's Deputy Paul
Hinman gave a very informative program at the Jan. 18 meet-
ing of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church's Women's
Ministries group.
Concise and to the point, Hinman described 12 of the most
frequently reported scams which are being perpetrated on resi-
dents of this county. Most of the scams revolve around caller
purporting to be from a lottery or contest of some sort. The
. caller will promise a monetary prize which requires that a
banking number, Social Security number, or other personal
information be given. The rule is "Never give out personal
information over the phone." Many older citizens feel it is rude
to hang up on a caller. However, there are times when you must
do that to disconnect from the scammer. Also, when instruc-
tions are to dial a long distance number to compete for a prize
S.k or other "windfall" of money, this will lead to a huge telephone
charge and will rarely,, if ever, lead to money in your pocket.
Just remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it is.
Following the speaker, a business meeting was conducted
by president Sandy White. A devotion was prayerfully given by
Louise Pick. Upcoming events which will involve the

God was reconciling the world

dors, as though God were mak-

Be reconciled to God. God
made Jesus who had no sin to
be sin for us, so that in Jesus we
might become the righteousness
of God."

Highlands Art
League members
displaying work
SEBRING More than 50
members are exhibiting at the
Highlands Art League
Membership Show from now
until Feb. 17.
Collectively, they've deliv-
ered 88 pieces of new art for the
exhibit, which opened to the
public at 5 p.m. Thursday at the
Gallery Gift Shop.
"We're delighted with the
level of participation," Alice
Stroppel, executive director for
the Highlands Art League, said.
"The gallery is looking terrific
with all the beautiful art on dis-
play. We have quite a range of
talented members and are
happy to host an exhibit for
them."
Pat Reich is showing her
work for the first time. A mem-
ber since October 2005, she
said she is excited to be
involved.
"I think of myself as a real
novice and I'm thrilled that
someone thinks my work is
good enough to hang in the
Gallery alongside some true
artists," Reich said.
Reich is taking her third six-

is interested in trying to paint
portraits next.
"My husband is very sup-

Celebrate Recovery helps men and women


One of my favorite things about
Christmas is the decorations. The
lights, trees, bows, the snowmen and
Santa are all fun to see in the yards and
adorning streets. Wreaths are also an
important part of Christmas. And, B )
although 1 don't do much decorating
around our house, (that could be trans-
lated "I don't do any decorating"), I do
have the responsibility to put up the
two wreaths on the front door. It takes VER
all of 15 seconds and they look good SPIr
and are very welcoming to our home.
But, it was Monday, Jan. 22, 2007 and VIT
it was beginning to look a little "out of
place." How long would it take to take Verlon
them down? About 15 seconds. Am I
capable of taking them down?
Certainly! So why haven't I? Well, because
although every time I go into my house I see
them and think about it, but as I enter the house,
something else grabs my attention and I forget
about them until the next day when I see them.
My point? I am not focused on getting the
wreaths down. They are not even important
enough to me to think about without seeing them
more than once. As soon as I have seen them,
they are forgotten. Ever had that problem with
some task you needed to get done? For some
things (like taking two wreaths down) it's not
such a serious problem. But for more important
issues it certainly can become a big problem. For
example, you know your friend is not a Christian
and although you see him all the time, the only
time you think about his soul is when the preach-
er preaches on evangelism. But once you're out
of the church building, you soon forget about
your friend's soul. Or maybe it's your soul. You
think about becoming a Christian when you
attend a funeral or hear about a dying friend -

but the feeling soon passes and you for-
get.
The key is focus. The Bible is full of
S great men and women who were peo-
ple of focus. David remarked in Psalms
119:11, "I have hidden thy word in my
heart that I might not sin against you."
David kept the word of God before
him. Paul tells us in Philippians 3:13-
S 14, "Brothers, I do not consider that I
IN S have made it my own. But one thing I
UAL do: forgetting what lies behind and
straining forward to what lies ahead.
MIN I press on toward the goal for the
prize of the upward call of God it
7arrell Christ Jesus." Paul was a man of focus.
S His life was lived like a rifle bullet
aimed at a target. He kept his goals
ever before him. Many times our lives are lived
like a shotgun blast in an open field aiming at
nothing and hitting it. The difference? Focus!
Jesus lived his life with true focus. He knew
His mission, "For the Son of Man came to seek
and to save what was lost," Luke 19:10, and set
his mind to accomplishing it. No matter where he
was, who he was with, or what their circum-
stances might be, he focused on the well-being of
their soul. He kept people (his business) ever
before him. What about us? Let's be more
focused this year than any other when it comes to
doing the work of the Lord. Start by praying to
the Lord and asking Him to help you focus on
him. Then keep the work you want to engage in
ever before you.
And by the way ... the wreaths came down
Monday evening.

AVON PARK The
Celebrate Recovery meets
every Tuesday night at "The
Rock," which is the youth
house for Union
Congregational Church, 28 N.
Butler Ave.
A barbecue meal is served at
6 p.m. The meal consists of hot
dogs, bratwurst and hamburg-
ers, baked beans, sometimes a
surprise covered dish or two
and a beverage, all fqr a dona-"
tion. At 6:45 p.m., members
begin singing praise songs and
either share brief testimonies of
something they learned or expe-
rienced or have a "canned" tes-
timony from a video, or a brief
lesson about which the small
groups can discuss. At 7:30
p.m., the group breaks up into
small groups.


Celebrate Recovery has a
men's issues group which will
divide into chemical depend-
ence and anger/sex addiction
when the number of men
increase. It has three women's
groups: Women's issues which
will divide into chemical
dependency and grief/depres-
sion/anxiety when the numbers
increase; a newcomer's group;
food addiction and co-depend-
ency.
The program is designed to
use the 12 Steps to help anyone
who has a hurt, habit or hang
up. It is not only for drug and
alcohol addiction, but for peo-
ple who have experienced
divorce, death or illness grief,
low or lost self-esteem or iden-
tity due to dysfunctional rela-
tionships, depression/anxiety,


or any other need for healing.
The nice thing about this pro-
gram is that new groups can be
created as they are needed.
Celebrate Recovery uses the
Recovery Bible and a study
guide created by Saddleback
Church in California that holds
the copywrite for everything.
The group believes in the 12
Steps of Alcoholics
Anonymous and consider this
program a wonderful asset to
one's recovery in general and
spiritual growth specifically.
This program is not designed to
replace the 12 Steps program,
but rather, to enhance and sup-
port it.

free to contact Celebrate
Recovery Coordinator Pam Sim
by calling 453-3345, ext. 106.


Aglow Lighthouse meets Feb. 3


AVON PARK The Aglow
Interdenominational Christian
Women's Fellowship meeting
will be in its new meeting place
at the Union Congregational
Church fellowship hall, 106 N.
Butler Ave.
Breakfast is at 9 a.m., with
meeting following. There is no
charge. This will be a "special"
Valentines Day meeting and
men are invited.

Sim. Sim was born and raised

to Avon Park with her husband
in July of 2002, where they
both felt like one-of-the-family
from the first visit to Union


Congregational Church and
have been serving there ever
since. She had desires to be a
missionary but because of
physical limitations, the Lord
provided her with mission work
right on her own home soil.
She has a marvelous testimo-
ny of God's deliverance and
saving grace, which landed her
where she is now, working at
Union Congregational Church
as an addictions counselor in
what they have dubbed the
"Life Skills Ministry," working
with alcoholism, addictions, co-
dependency, depression, anxi-
ety, anger, grief, premarital and
marital assistance, children's


issues and parenting issues
among others. She holds a
bachelor's degree in social
work, certification in addiction
counseling and faith-based
counseling, having more than
25 years in Head Start, mental
health and drug and alcohol
counseling fields.
The Lord gave her the love of
her music and a sense of humor
to help her through life's diffi-
culties. She sings and has
involved herself in just about
everything to do with music at
her church and thanks and
praises God for his blessings,
for the opportunity ,toq touch
other's lives with his love.

History Lesson
25 Years Ago
Jan. 26, 1982: The
Sebring girls basketball
team lost a player to injury,
and then a heartbreaker to
the visiting Hardee
Wildcats. After an 11-0
first quarter lead was
erased and the score
evened at 33 in the fourth,
center Carla Fayson badly
bruised her knee and was
lost for the final minutes of
the game. From that point
on, Hardee went on a
game-ending 8-1 run to
seal the win.

... and lit up, too.
After making it to
the state tournament
last season in just their second
year of softball, the South
Florida Community College
Lady Panthers have set
S their sights higher this
season and are focusing
on not only getting to
state, but staying there
for a while after going
two and out last year.
"That's what I've
been trying to bang into
their heads: OK, you've
made it, but now it's not
enough to just make
it," said head


Jessica
Pauley


coach Carlos Falla, whose Panthers
open the season at 2:30 p.m.
Saturday with a home game against
powerhouse Santa Fe Community
College. "We went two-and-out, so
we need.to get a little better and con-
tinue to build those successes every
year. Now we need to go deeper into
it and get respect from everybody
else."
One thing that will help the pro-
gram garner some more respect this
season is the addition of lights to
Panther Field. Being able to play
night games is always a bonus for
the fans and will also be a bonus for
the players, who don't have to miss
nearly as much class.
But it will take more than a few
light bulbs for SFCC to really
become one of the state's top pro-
grams. If they want to join the elite
this season, the Panthers will have to
have at least one pitcher and
hopefully more step into the hole
left behind by Christina Morrow,
who pitched a majority of the innings
the past two seasons.
Falla said returners Kim Ward and
Anna Turvin will definitely have to

Baseball team seeking fourth

consecutive winning record


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
Sports Writer
AVON PARK
S spring is the time of renewal, of
rebirth, of new beginnings.
Those are the sorts of analogies
one hears every spring with the
return of baseball, where it certainly fits.
But nowhere does it seem more appro-
priate than in junior college baseball,
something South Florida Community
College head coach Rick Hitt knows all
too well as he leads the Panthers into the
season opener today at Hillsborough in
non-conference action.
"As it is every year in junior colleges,
we have transitioned a lot of players out
and a lot of new players in," he said. "So
it's been a matter of seeing what we
have, working on different aspects of the
game and tightening things up to get
ready to play."
Hitt has his core of position players
returning as experienced sophomores,
including Tyler Wright, Nick Polston,
Barry Padgett, Brad Gooch, Reco
Jackson, Nick Stanley and Dale Slimick,
with newcomers Pat Tugano and Steven
Levine looking to crack the starting line-
up.
Sean Bryant, Chad Colestock and
Calvin Brutus will be the veteran pitchers
returning for the Panthers, but there are a
slew of new arms that will be taking the
mound as well this season.
Eric Derham, Chris Rhodes, Dustin
Huguley, Hunter Reed, Kyle Lozensky
and Brien Coppola are the half-dozen


right-handers
vying for a spot in
the rotation, while
southpaws Jeff
Bloomer, Marcus Taylor
and 6-foot-8 Andrew Barbosa
also look to make their mark.
"We have experience at the
plate and defensively," Hitt said.
"I know we can hit, and I think we
are going to pitch. We definitely
have some talent there, the only
question will be if we are going to
be able to catch the ball every day.
"We have a lot of versatile players
defensively," he continued. "But a lot
of times what we need offensively can
dictate who plays where and that can
affect the defense by maybe not putting
guys in their best positions."
That will be seen fast and furiously
during this first month of the season,
which may be a bit of a shock for the
newcomers with the schedule ahead.
"From now until the end of February.
we will be playing the equivalent of a
whole high school schedule, plus a few
more games," Hitt said. "That will real-
ly test the freshmen just coming off of a
high school season and get them some
experience quickly.
"But they also will have to learn
that this is a marathon, not a sprint."
For after that initial. 23-game
blitz, with 10 of the first 11

District 10-4A Boys SoccerTournament

Streaks knock off Hardee


to earn spot in playoffs

Wheaton's goal in double OT sends Sebring to finals


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
Sports Writer
PALMETTO Rain: giver
of life, or wreaker of havoc? In
Wednesday night's District 10-
4A tournament action, the
Sebring Blue Streaks and
Hardee Wildcats each saw it in
their own way.
For both teams, the constant,
chilly downpour made for a
slick field, tricky footing and a
hard to handle soccer ball. But
for top-seeded Hardee, the con-
ditions took away the Wildcats'
biggest advantage.
Which was the giver of life
for Sebring, which advanced to


the district finals with a 1-0,
double overtime victory.
"They're a very quick team,
and the conditions really took
away their cutting and dribbling
s. i ability," senior
goalkeeper Carl
Belcher said. "It
really played to
oe our advantage."
Q Not to say that
it made things
easy for the Blue
Streaks, as the Wildcats still
had their chances. But Belcher
was up to the task, tallying
more than 20 saves on the
night.


"The ball was really slip-
pery," he said. "It made it hard
to catch the ball and I had a
couple that slipped through my
fingers; a couple got a little
close there."
But as everyone knows, close
only counts in horseshoes, not
in attempted soccer goals.
Sebring had its share of
opportunities that were close, as
well.
But whether the shots were
affected by the conditions and
missing just wide, off the post,
or stopped by Hardee keeper

LAKE PLACID Lake Placid Marine
held on to beat Central Security 13-12 in
Lake Placid Senior Softball League on
Wednesday to improve to 4-0. Once again,
the game was not settled until the final out.
Bob Fee and Howard Southwick led the
winners with three hits each. Rocky
Soccarras and Dana Hurlbut had three hits
each for Central Security.
The other game on Wednesday was a
high-scoring affair, with Seminole Tire pre-
vailing holding off a charging Advanced
Mobile Systems, 23-21. Seminole Tire had
led by some 18 runs going into the last two
innings when a furious comeback by
Advanced Mobile Systems fell two runs
short, with.the tying runs on base at the
final out.
Seminole's scoring machine was led by
Larry Oser and Cal Bready with four hits
each. Manager Harley Smith and John
Ladensack added three hits each and nearly
all of their other teammates had two hits.
The Advanced Mobile System attack was
led by Dick Schultz with five hits, includ-
ing a home run, Dick Harmick with five
hits, Mike Jurmu with four hits and Dick
Heinback with three in the losing effort.
Lake Placid Marine's perfect record has
it in first place, followed by Advanced
Mobile Systems and Seminole Tire with a
records of 3-2, Michelle Yates Insurance
with a record 1-3 and finally, Central

Panthers right up the middle, Falla said, with shortstops
Rachel Holloway and Nikki DeRita, second
ever more so basemen Sam Waldron and Shannon Russel and
baseball, it is center fielder Jessica "J.P." Pauley.
"My middle infield is probably the fastest
I've had in several years," Falla said. "We're
quick enough that we've modified how we play
a slap defense and how we do a lot of stuff.
B Instead of putting people out of position to play
a slap defense, we just bring people in and cover
the ground.
"My middle infield is quick and fast and with
our pitching ... we get a lot of ground balls and
pop flies and our defense can just run them
down."
SAnother key to that up-the-middle strength
will be freshman catcher Kate DeLima, who
will have to be able to take charge of the
defense and manage the pitchers.
"She has the steepest learning curve because
she's got to catch different types of pitchers and
she's got to run the defense," Falla said. "She's
going to have to battle. She's going to have to
be on her 'A' game all the time."
SThat speed up the middle of the defense -
along with some added power hitting should
translate into a more potent offense, Falla said.
"We're still trying to work out a lineup. We
know 1-5, but from 5-9, that's where we have to
figure out what combinations we want to make,"
Falla said. "We've got kids that can run and hit
the ball for power and we've got kids that can
just hit for power and don't run so well, so
we're trying to figure out that balance in the
bottom half of the lineup."
The Panthers spent the fall working on situa-
tional hitting, like knowing what kind of pitch to
look for in a certain scoring situation, an effort
that Falla is hoping will pay dividends this
spring.
"We have enough balance where we can score


League play is on Monday and
Wednesday mornings at the Lake June ball
fields. Players may be added to teams over
the next couple of weeks. Men 50 years or
older who are interested in playing should
come to the ball fields by about 9 a.m. on
game day.
Sebring League
The Sebring Senior Softball League
teams are still within reach of each other
with few imbalanced scores.
Thursday's games were postponed due to
bad weather, but Tuesday's action featured
several good games.
The Rebels defeated Silent Salesman 12-
9, proving themselves at the plate with Tom
(Moose) Morrissette belting four hits
including a triple. Don Matthews had two
hits, while Rollie Carlson, Jim Strietzel,
Diz Jones, Elwood Black and Fred Boyd
each added three hits.
The Salesman were trying to play a little
catch-up by scoring four runs in the eighth
inning, but it was not quite enough to over-
come the Rebels. Helping their cause were
Jerry Johnston and Julian Vanisacker each
smacking three hits and scoring three times.
Those credited with two hits were Leo
Lypps, Bob Flack, Don Cunningham and
Harley Smith. After limping along under-
staffed so far this season, the Salesman
have acquired several more players to fill
their roster.
Royal Palms showed no mercy on

five or six runs and if we're having an off day,
we're fast enough that we can get that 2-1 victo-
ry, too," Falla said.
"When we get consistent at-bats, our sticks
will come on line. They did in the fall when we
had three or four games in a row and we hit the
ball and did what we needed to do. We hit-and-
ran, we pulled the ball when we needed to and
we can even over-swing on the ball and drive it
down into the dirt and get a high hop."
It won't take long for the Panthers to find out
just how much their hard work in the fall has
paid off. Santa Fe spent much of last season
ranked No. 1 in the state, and Sunday's oppo-
nent, Florida Community College-Jacksonville,
is a perennial top-10 team, too.
"We'll find out real quick where we're at,"
Falla said.


Luby's with a final score of 13-4 at Lincoln
Heights field in Sebring. Brian Pluta had
three hits including a double for Royal
Palms, Jim Quartier tripled, and Ross
Anderson, Bob MacCarrick, Charlie Quinn
and Bob Floodine added two hits each.
At Lake Placid, Miller Central Air out-
slugged Aluminum Discount by one measly
run to take a 19-18 win. Miller's star per-
former was Don Teague,'who hit a grand-
slam home run, and he had help from team-
mates Dave Holloway, who was 4-for-5,
and Rod Palmer, who had three hits, includ-
ing a homer.
Aluminum put up a good fight to stay
alive with Les Smith helping his team with
three hits, including a home run. Tallying
four hits each were John Schmidt and Jim
Larnard. Contributing to more scoring were
Paul Stevenson and Jim Chebatoris with
three hits each.
After the first round of play, the league
standings show Royal Palms in first at 5-0
followed by Miller Central Air (4-1), the
Rebels (3-2), Silent Salesman Aluminum
Discount and Luby's (all 1-4).
One apology is in order regarding the
newspaper write-up for the Jan. 16 game
between the Rebels and Aluminum
Discount. The results were reversed and
Aluminum did not march on the Rebels as
stated. The Rebels defeated Aluminum
Discount, 15-8. Any corrections need to be
given to the League's appointed reporting
person to be rectified.


STREAKS
Continued from ID
Francisco Lozano, the teams
played 80 scoreless, hard-
fought, hand-wringing minutes
... then 90 ... then 95.
And there he was, in that
95th minute, streaking down
after a ball, trying to beat a
Hardee defender for posses-
sion.
Senior Tim Wheaton got
there a split second before the
Wildcat, but instead of trying to
redirect or control it with deft
footwork, he booted it forward,
continuing the ball on its' path
toward the goal.
Lozano had a choice to
make, stay back or come out.
He came out.
But Wheaton had the
momentum and fired it past:the
now caught-in-between
Wildcat keeper for the game
winner and a soaking, jubilant
upset.
"We only won six games this
season, although we really
should have won nine or 10,"
Sebring head coach Paul
Brown said. "(Hardee) is a fan-
tastic and very skilled team, but
we got a bit lucky with the
weather conditions leveling the
playing field a bit.
"But we really played a great
game, we all really stepped
up," he continued. "And once
we got past the first 15 minutes
of the second half and they did-
n't score, I thought we were
really in the game."
Brown also made special
mention of sophomore Joey
Lezama, normally a midfielder,
who was moved back to
defense and helped defuse the
Hardee attack.
SThe win means new life, and
two more games for the Blue
Streaks the district final ver-
sus Palmetto today at 7 p.m.,
and then on to the state playoffs
next week.

Auto Racing .. r...


Dyson's new Porsche



fastest in Winter Test


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Andy Wallace really,
really likes the Porsche RS Spyder.
After Wednesday's third and final ses-
sion of the third annual American Le
Mans Series Winter Test at Sebring
International Raceway, who could
blame him? The Englishman's time of
1:46.983 in Dyson Racing's new pro-
totype was the fastest of the day and
the best of the week.
Wallace was just good enough to
beat out Luis Diaz of Lowe's
Fernandez Racing and its Acura-pow-
ered Lola B05/40. The first-year
American Le Mans Series competitor
also set his best time in the day's final
session at 1:47.006, just 0.23 seconds
behind the veteran Wallace.
"I really, really like this car! Porsche
builds a fantastic car and they have
been terrific to work with, as have the
people from Penske (Motorsports),"
Wallace said. "There has been a
tremendous amount of sharing back


and forth, and we are very apprecia-
tive. We have quite a good repertoire
of what the car likes for setup. The
track will change of course in March
but we can deal with that."
Wallace and Diaz knocked Penske's
Emmanuel Collard into the third over-
all position for the three days. The
Frenchman's best lap of 1:47.166
around the 3.7-mile, 17-turn circuit
came Wednesday morning in one of
Penske's Porsche RS Spyders.
"For the drivers there are noticeable
differences (with the new-generation
RS Spyder)," Penske driver Sascha
Maassen said. "The good thing is that
we drove here with last year's car and
have transitioned some of those things
over. And we also have a full year of
development with the previous car.
"The main changes are with the aero
and some suspension stuff. It's also not
as quick as before with the smaller
restrictors. Drivability has been the
biggest area of improvement over the

past two days. We also hope that
means better performance for March."
Two other Acura-powered entries,
the Courage LC75s from Andretti
Green Racing and Highcroft Racing,
were within 1.4 seconds of Wallace
and the Dyson Racing Porsche.
"We're getting there," Andretti
Green driver Dario Franchitti said.
"There still is a long way to go and a
lot of work to do. It's an ongoing
process in the development of a new
program."


Tafel Racing was the quickest GT2
car for the week in its first test with its
two new Porsche 997 RSR racers.
German Wolf Henzler turned in the
best lap of 2:01.678 in Wednesday's
early afternoon session to edge out the
Ferrari 430 GT Berlinetta from defend-
ing class champion Risi Competizione.
Jaime Melo and Johnny Mowlem
shared the driving duties with Melo
getting most of the .work.
Third fastest in class was the No. 45
Porsche of Flying Lizard Motorsports,


also a brand new 997. Johannes van
Overbeek and Jorg Bergmeister split
time in the car, which produced a top
lap of 2:02.446 on Tuesday morning.
The top three cars were within 0.7
seconds of each other in a preview of
what could be the most competitive
class in this year's American Le Mans
Series.
The 2007 American Le Mans Series
opens with the 55th Mobil 1 12 Hours
of Sebring on March 17 at Sebring
International Raceway.
