Event to showcase historic Pearce Homestead


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
LORIDA The Pearce
Homestead has been the center of
much discussion over the past
months. And if anyone wants to see
what all the fuss is about, Saturday
would be a good time to find out.
The Pearce Homestead: Then and
Now, an event designed to spotlight
the historic property, will take place
at 10 a.m. this Saturday. According


to event organizer and Riverwoods
Field Laboratory Director Loisa
Kerwin, the event is designed for all
ages to come out and learn more
about the property.
"I am very excited to provide this
opportunity for residents and fami-
lies to learn about the Pearce
Homestead, a Florida treasure," she
said. "The Pearce family's rich his-
tory at the Homestead exemplifies
the Heartland's pioneer, agricultural


and ecological past and provides a
valuable link to our future."
The event will also be a good
opportunity to learn what life was
like at the turn of the 20th century,
Dr. Catherine Cornelius, chair-
woman of the Highlands County
Historic Preservation Commission,
said.
"The Pearce Homestead provides
a very clear picture of the past, when
families had to be extremely self-


sufficient and depend on the river
for the majority of their transporta-
tion," Cornelius said. "The river,
barn, and tiny schoolhouse are living
historic examples of early life in
Florida, and they help us understand
our past and anticipate our future.
Treasures such as this must be saved
and made available to the public for
their use and enjoyment."
The day's festivities will begin at
10 a.m. with a welcome, and Sam


Harper will give an overview of the
Florida Cracker Trail ride and dis-
tribute informational books about
the historic trail.
Visitors will have the opportunity
to tour the historic property, and vol-
unteers will be set up to talk about
the history of each of the home-
stead's buildings. Cracker Cowboy
Poet Hank Mattson will be the fea-
tured speaker at the event, present-

2007 Sebring Race posters going up


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING It's another
sign that Race Week is just
around the corner.
The official poster for the
2007 Mobil 1 12 Hours of
Sebring soon will be seen in
windows throughout the area.
This year's poster is a ren-
dering by Ohio-based artist
Roger Warrick. It uses the
Sebring Regional Airport as a
backdrop and features several
of the leading competitors in
the American Le Mans Series
on track, including the
defending champion Audi
R10, the new Acura LMP2
prototype, the Penske Porsche
Spyder plus the GT2 Risi
Ferrari and 2006 class champ
- the Panoz GTLM.
In addition to the tribute to
Audi as last year's winner, the
poster also hints at the pro-
jected battle between Porsche
and Acura in the LMP 2 divi-

Ohio.


sion as well as the hotly con-
tested GT2 class race involv-
ing Panoz, Ferrari and
Porsche this year.
This is not the first time


Warrick has done a poster for
the 12 Hours.
"Actually, it's the third one
for me. I did the first in 2005
and of course last year's


poster," he said from his
Cincinnati studio.
His first poster, featured a
unique perspective, viewing
the cars from behind as they
headed up the front stretch
out of Turn 17. Warrick chose
the airport turn for this year's
art, as it hadn't been done in a
while.
"They have done so many
posters, it's not always easy
to find something new," he
said.
The last time the airport
turn was featured, the land-
mark red and white checked
water tower still was part of
the landscape.
"I sketched out a couple of
ideas including that one, and
this is the one the track went
with," he said.
Warrick received his
marching orders as to which
cars to include from raceway

Commission



wastes time
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@ newssun.com
SEBRING Eva Coale, controller for The Groves at
Victoria Park, waited.
Coale was on the county commissioners' Tuesday agenda
to request abatement of school taxes for the 55 and older
community at 2010 Village Grove Blvd., Sebring.
She waited for discussion about the Thunderbird Hills
South Water Treatment Plant that's been operating without a
state permit for five years.
Next, Coale endured a brief presentation by Kevin Brown,
Avon Park Chamber of Commerce president, who discussed
the Highlands County Day at the Capital trip organized by
Leadership Highlands.
Louise England, of the county's Economic Development
Commission, and Bridgette Merrill, of Enterprise Florida,
followed Brown.
Coale continued to wait as Merrill brought the commis-
sioners up to speed on the Rural Area of Critical Economic
Concern Catalyst Project, asking them to sign a memoran-
dum of agreement: They did.
Coale was finally called to discuss her agenda item the
proposed abatement of school taxes to help The Groves pay
down its debt.
With 122 units, the apartment community is funded by
federal low-income housing tax credits, state and county
loans and private equity, Coale said in a written statement
given to the board.
The residents there earn from $9,700 to $25,850, or 30-60
percent of the Area Median Income of Highlands County.
One-bedroom apartments range !from $260-$519. Two-
bedroom apartments rent for $311 t-o $622
Those figures are reduced about six percent for a utility
allowance that was increased by 33 percent in 2006.
"The senior residents will not impact schools and may
actually provide some positive results, for the schools as
potential mentors, tutors and substitutes," Coale said in her
statement.
Abating school taxes would save The Groves about
$26,000 annually.
In the end, Coale waited for nothing, except advice that
she go to The School Board of Highlands County.
"The county doesn't impose the school tax," board attor-

Rotarians prepare to


send Shelter Boxes


News-Sun staff reports
SEBRING As they did
when the tsunami hit Asia and
when Hurricane Katrina swal-
lowed New Orleans in 2004,
the Rotary Clubs of Sebring
are putting their forces
together to send Shelter
Boxes to the areas of Central
Florida that were ripped apart
on Friday by tornadoes.
Within hours of the storms,
Shelter Box USA was receiv-
ing requests from Rotary
Clubs for assistance in the
affected areas. Those club
presidents were already in the
process of assessing the dam-
age and they help required for
their communities.
According to the Web site,
shelterboxusa.org, Shelter
Boxes are sponsored by serv-
ice clubs, school and church
groups, businesses and indi-
viduals, etc. The boxes are
prepared and packed using all
new materials as delivered
from manufacturers. The


standard 49-gallon
ShelterBox weighs 110
pounds, are sealed and band-
ed for transit and security.
Box contents vary depending
on the nature of the disaster
requiring their use.
Once the box is delivered,
it can be used as a water tank,
to store food, as a cot, table,
etc.
Boxes are sometimes
packed with two 10-person
tents in them. Some of the
other selected items include
sleeping mats; sleeping bags;
water purification tablets and
water containers; a tool kit;
rope; repellent-treated mos-
quito netting; ponchos/plastic
bags; multi-fueled cook
stove; eating utensils; and a
children's activity kit.
Each Shelter Box costs
$900. If anyone would like to
contribute to the funding of a
Shelter Box, contact a local
Rotarian or call Joan Fisher at
385-3829.


AP code enforcement


wants to add bite


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher:tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK City
Manager C. B. Shirey briefed
members of the Community
Redevelopment Agency's
Main Street Advisory Board
Friday night about the city's
new plan to tighten the
administration of a strength-
ened city code.
Two new ordinances, with
detailed requirements for
landlords and property own-
ers, and limiting residential
occupancy, are currently
being written, and are expect-
ed to come back before the
city council in a matter of
weeks.
Two new code enforcement
officers are already out on the
street, Shirey said, still in
training, but learning the
community and meeting local
residents.
With Marnita English and
Greg Warner on patrol, code


enforcement's Captain
Donald Simmons said, there
would now be code enforce-
ment patrols seven days a
week.
In addition to a greater
presence on the street, Shirey
told the Main Street Advisory
Board, the city council is also
looking into creating a Code
Enforcement Board and into
writing procedures for a
Grand Master.
Shirey has met with the city
attorney, Gerald T. Buhr, who
is investigating the matter.
One of the issues being con-
sidered is turning from a
purely civil code enforcement
structure, to one including
criminal sanctions so the new
code will have teeth.
"It's important to remem-
ber that about 95 percent of
people comply," Shirey said.
The process will be a pro-
gressive one with the punish-
ments getting stricter.

Temple of Israel vice president Seymour Fields-Elias (left) makes a toast last week to temple
president Bernie Wolkove during a special reception in Wolkove's honor in Sebring. According
to Fields-Elias, the gathering was a way to recognize Wolkove and his wife Martzi for all their
hard work at the temple. 'He has doubled membership in the past six years,' Fields-Elias said.
About 80 people attended the event, including Rabbi Merle Singer and Rabbi Fred Natkin. In
his closing remarks, Wolkove called he and his wife's dedication to the temple, 'A labor of love,
giving to the community and our temple, this comes from the depths of our hearts.'

SEBRING Once again,
people will have the opportu-
nity to win thousands of dol-
lars worth of prizes and sup-
port a number of worthwhile
causes during Race Week by
participating in the second
annual Hairpin Spin.
Designed to replace the
fashion show, the inaugural
event was organized last year
by Lisa Celentano.
"I was asked to do a charity
event and I wanted to do
something that would both
attract a lot of attention and
broaden audience appeal. So,
I looked at the hotel and I
looked at the location on the
track and came up with the
casino-type event and named
it.'Hairpin Spin,' she said.
The game involves a giant
roulette-style wheel that lays
flat. Each of the numbers has
a pie shaped wedge where
chips are placed. Each of the
chips has a number that iden-
tifies the owner. When the
wheel is spun, the chips that
are in the winning wedge are
subsequently redistributed
and the wheel is spun again.
That process is repeated
until there is just one chip and
just one winner.
"That way, people who
want to win a certain prize
can bet on it and not bet on
the prizes they're not interest-
ed in" she said.
Some people, like Fred
Keiber, dumped all their chips


on one prize. It paid off for
him with a fishing trip to
Canada.
Celentano said pre-sales of
the chips already have been
brisk. Her hope is to top the
1,500 sold prior to the event
last year.
Winning Audi drivers Tom
Kristensen and Frank Biela
helped to spin the wheel as
did Team Corvette members
Johnny O'Connell and Ron
Fellows. They also stuck
around for a while to sign
autographs and pose for pic-
tures. Celentano promised
more drivers would be
involved this year and there
also will be an appearance by
new race queen Caitlin
Harris.
The 2006 event raised
$13,000, with the money split
between the Change for our
Children scholarship pro-
gram, the Humane Society of
Highlands County, the Child-
ren's Services Foundation of
Highlands County's Safe-
House for abused women and
children and the Sebring


Sports Car Racing Hall of
Fame.
This year they hope to up
the ante to $20,000.
Promotional materials tout
thousands of dollars-worth of
prizes, including another fly-
in fishing trip to Canada, an
adventure camp for two in
Montana, a Panoz Racing
School package and a race
package from the American
Le Mans Series.
"That one is priceless, but
the others literally are worth
thousands each," Celentano
pointed out. "Plus, there are
smaller prizes including gift
baskets and gourmet catering
that I think a lot of folks
would just love to win."
Tickets are $25 each and
are available at Celentano's
business, BusyBODIES.
Chips are $3 each or 10 for
$25.
Tickets also are available
as part of sponsorship pack-
ages. Those who want more
information or who wish to
participate may call
Celentano at 382-0505.

Fairground buildings have varied history PEARCE
Continued from IA


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING While the
livestock shows, beauty pag-
eants and other contests are
held at this 70th edition of
the Highlands County Fair,
few people will realize the
covered facility they are in
will be quietly celebrating its
25th birthday.
The large, covered pavilion
made its debut in 1982.
Reportedly the idea of a
large, enclosed entertainment
area had been kicked around
by members of the Highlands
County Fair Board for years
but the notion was brought to
fruition by board member
Cecil Heston. He suggested
they go ahead with the project
after a rain-soaked perform-
ance by then-country star


Jeannie C. Riley of "Harper
Valley PTA" fame in 1981.
The 175-by-100-foot struc-
ture took advantage of the
already covered stage area
and came in at a cost of
$180,000. The bill was shared
by the fair board and a dona-
tion from First National Bank.
When it was first constructed,
officials boasted it would be
able to seat 4,500 people and
would serve not only for the
fair, but also as a facility that.
could be used for professional
events and community activi-
ties.
Several service groups
were quoted as saying they
already had plans for the new
multi-purpose building.
The fair as it is known
today actually began in 1937,
when the Sebring Firemen,


Inc. stepped in to sponsor the
event. There are some reports
of a county fair being held
back as far as the 1920s, and
the Sebring Firemen had
sponsored a carnival but had
refused to do other such proj-
ects.
Reportedly, it was in 1936
a carnival operator had threat-
ened to purchase a license and
sponsor a county fair-type
event himself if the group
would not lend its endorse-
ment.
Records and photographs
of the original event show
exhibits in tents on an open
field on the north end of
Ridgewood Drive as the gene-
sis of the fair. Sebring histori-
an Allen Altvater said in 1987
the tents were problematic on
a number of levels. They


leaked they were hard to
secure and the flapping can-
vas scared the livestock.
Reportedly it took the
Firemen three years to acquire
the land between the baseball
diamond and Kenilworth
Boulevard for what is now the
fairgrounds and they were
criticized for purchasing more
than they needed. That land
acquisition effort continues to
this day.
The addition of more struc-
tures came in 1987 when a
restroom complex was built
and went into operation just
in time for the 50th anniver-
sary of the fair. The latest
addition was put into opera-
tion three years ago when the
new livestock barn was com-
pleted.

POSTERS
Continued from 1A
officials, but 'defmting what
the cars \ 1IIl look like at race
time is a challenge.
Especially since the design of
the poster begins in
November for a painting of a
race that won't be run for five
more months.
He takes photographs to
help with the renderings of
the vehicles and their track
location to ensure authenticity
for the fans who for the most
part are very familiar with the
competitors and their venues.
"I used a digital camera to
take some photos of the cars
last year then used informa-
tion on the new cars, then
pulled all of that together to
come up with the way they'd
look like on the track for this
year's race. Luckily I'd been
taking pictures at that corner
for the past couple of years so
I had a good frame of refer-
ence to what it might look
like," he said.
Warrick said he'd receive
help from the track in prog-
nosticating the cars and their
appearance for the upcoming
race.
"I work with Ken
Breslauer, the press officer
and track historian, he's a lot
of help for me," Warrick said.
He said in addition to being
somewhat dictated by subject
matter, doing a race poster is
different in that the artist has
to leave some available space
for writing including the
name and date of the event as
well as the ever-present spon-
sors.
"The track usually puts that
in, so you're never quite sure
how the finished product is
going to look," he said.
This year's poster already
is on sale for those who want
to be the first one on their
block to have one. It might be
a bit more attractive to collec-
tors in that it has been printed
on heavier stock paper than
has been done in the past.
Warrick works with a tradi-
tional mix of media such as
inks, watercolors, pencils,
and acrylics on illustration
board. He added that motor-
sports art is a much more
technically detailed painting
style in that fans are very
attuned to the appearance of


and the Allnighters will per-
form nightly throughout the

Wind Rhythms will be pre-
senting a slightly different
kind of music during their
daily performances. The
Arizona-based group is made
up of Incan descendants, who
will be playing on instru-
ments as diverse as the wood-
en flute and bamboo reeds.
Assuming the weather
holds up, fair general manag-
er Artie McIntyre expects
35,000 people during the
nine-day event. He said the
fair is a perfect way for a fam-
ily to have a good time with-
out breaking the bank.
"It's a great bang for the
buck," McIntyre said. "It's
one of the most economical
things a family can do."
Admission to the fair is $6
per day, and children 10 and
under are admitted free
(although they must be
accompanied by an adult).

Since the first 12-hour clas-

An armband covering

(except "Speed," which will

the armband is an excellent

TIME
Continued from 1A
ney J. Ross MacBeth said,
when commission chairman
C. Guy Maxcy referred the
issue to him.
Just before the commission
meeting adjourned close to 4
p.m., commissioner Barbara
Stewart chided the adminis-
tration and the board.
"There was no reason why
she shouldn't have been told
we don't have the authority,"
Stewart said. "I think we need
to be a little more prepared. A
lot more prepared."
Stewart noted where insuf-
ficient data resulted in delays
a letter from county staff
dated Feb. 1 for the
Thunderbird Hills Waste
Water Treatment Plant wasn't
given to the board until
Tuesday morning; no backup
documentation was given to
the board regarding a clean up
request of a "T" canal off of
Lake Josephine; Coale's
school tax abatement issue;
and a Habit for Humanity
request for 20 acres of "sur-
plus" county real estate con-
itinuedfrom a previous. iqeet-
in g . .


"We, in essence, wasted the
public's time, our time and
staff's time," Stewart said.
The deadline for a written
request to be on the agenda is
Tuesday afternoon a week
before the meeting.
Typically, county staff
gives the proposed agenda to
the chairman by Wednesday,
County Administrator Carl
Cool explained during a
phone interview.
After the chairman's
approval, the agenda is given
to the board with supporting
documents by Thursday after-
noon.
"They have it all day
Friday and Monday," Cool
said. "If they have any ques-
tions they can ask somebody."
Addressing the Lake
Josephine canal item that was
requested by R.J. Witt, Cool
said Maxcy asked for the item
to be on the agenda on behalf
of Witt, who didn't make his
request in writing and sup-
plied no amplifying data.
"I didn't know we were
going to get into the many
issues we got into," Cool said.
"We don't always know
where the conversations will

He said the commissioners


have his cell phone number
and, for the past two months,"
he's been in his office Friday
mornings.
To get on the agenda,
requests should be in writing
and state the reason of the
request and the desired out-
come. Information that would
help the board reach a deci-
sion should accompany the
request.
Coale's request was writ-
ten. Cool's staff put her on the
agenda.
"I looked at the agenda, I
saw it," Cool said of the draft
agenda with Coale's school
tax abatement request before
Maxcy approved it. "I under-
stood it."
By receiving more informa-
tion up front, Stewart sug-
gested the meetings would be
shorter she'd ask fewer
questions.
Maxcy committed to meet-
ing with Cool and assistant
administrator Rick Helms
within a day or two after the
meetings to verify staff
understands the board's direc-
tion.
"It's not personal," Stewart
said. "It's.just the ja I think
we should do business."

Darryl Taylor


claims to be


king of


vampires

By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Darryl Taylor worked in
the medical field for 15 years. And when-
ever he had to draw someone's blood for
tests, he was always complimented.
"I call myself king of the vampires,"
Taylor said. He's a certified phlebotomist
technician and a certified intravenous tech-
nician and goes to nursing homes and
assisted living facilities for Highlands
Clinical Lab, doing their routine blood
draws and stats those that are needed in
a hurry. He decided to set up his own busi-
ness and be a freelance phlebotomist
because it would be such a convenience
for people who don't like to wait in line or
are homebound or incapacitated.
"I was born and raised here and gradu-
ated from Sebring High School. I've lived
here all my life. I've been in the medical
field 15 years as an orderly, a CAN (certi-
fied nursing assistant), phlebotomist and
medical assistant," Taylor said.
Although there are home health agen-
cies that do this kind of work, sometimes
their nurses just don't like to draw blood.
Nor do they like all the paperwork. If
someone's had a stroke and the patient's
veins are froze up, it's a more difficult
task. But Taylor excels at finding veins.
"One patient told me that she always
passes out when someone draws her blood
because it takes person five or six times to
find and stick her veins. I can get it in one
shot. If a vein's hiding, I can find it,"
Taylor said.
Parents tend to tell their kids to look
away, but Taylor knows they are naturally
curious and lets them look. "I worked at
Highlands Regional nine ear- with six
years in the lab. Parents with sick kids

always requested me. I have kids of my
own and am very gentle and easy with
them. I'm a people person and know how
to get them to relax and see that it's not
going to hurt much more than a mosquito
bite," Taylor said.
Sometimes older people or heavier peo-
ple have veins that are hard to find. "If
your veins roll, I'll catch them. If they
hide, I'll find them. I'm the Michael
Jordan of phlebotomy," Taylor said.
And when he does occasionally miss
one, he always gets it on. the second try.
Taylor hopes that if a phlebotomist calls


in sick at a doctor's office or lab, they will
think of him. "I'll quickly respond and
take care of their needs," Taylor said.
Sometimes a person can be lazy and not
want to get out of bed, or they can be very
busy and forgetful. Maybe they've fasted
for the test and got busy with work or
playing golf, and at the last minute realize
they need their blood drawn. "It only takes
one or two minutes for me to draw their
blood and let them get back to what makes
them happy," Taylor said.
Darryl Taylor Phlebotomy Service is at
1214 Bellevue Ave. Call him at 402-5490.


Yes, you are right;
it is that time of the l
year to gather up all
your tax records for
the previous year for ,
the purposes of
preparing your per-
sonal tax return. My
telephone has already
begun to ring with -
clients wanting to set TAX
appointments to
review their tax Bill B
information.
Whether you are the
person that has already begun
this process or the person that
waits until the filing deadline
(which by the way is Tuesday,
April 17), here are some things
that you will need to know for
this year's tax return.
Every year the Legislature
passes tax legislation which
changes the rules on various
areas of the tax code. This year
is not any different. As a matter
of fact, a number of provisions
signed into law by President
George Bush in the last couple
of years had expired as of Dec.
31, 2005. The Tax Relief and
Healthcare Act of 2006, which
became law on Dec. 20, 2006,
retroactively reinstated many of
these provisions for 2006 and
2007.
The provisions which had
previously expired and were
retroactively extended in the
legislation are as follows:
The option to deduct state
and local general sales taxes in
lieu of state income taxes.
The above the line deduc-
tion for higher education
expenses.
The above the line deduc-
tion for out of pocket expenses
for teachers and other school
professionals.
The availability of Archer
medical savings accounts.


TALK
Renton


Thee credit for
qualified research
activities.
The Work
Opportunity Tax
Credit and Welfare-
to-Work Credit.
The 15-year
depreciable life for
qualified leasehold
improvements and
qualified restaurant
property.
The deduction


for computer equip-
ment donated to educational
institutions and public libraries.
The new legislation also
expanded the availability and
benefits of Health Savings
Accounts. It also made a few
changes in the Alternative
Minimum Tax arena.
While these changes are
good news, taking these deduc-
tions on your 2006 tax return
will be confusing because the
IRS forms released by the
Treasury Department did not
include any of these extended
provisions. Therefore, many of
the lines on the forms that you
are used to seeing are not there
in 2006. If you are affected by
these provisions, you should
consult your tax professional or
review the IRS.gov Web site on
how to report these on your
return.
In my next article, I plan on
discussing Heath Savings
Accounts and whether one is
right for you.

America turns violent and heads for
physical, emotional destruction


This is the first
of a two-part series.
We are currently
caught up in a terrible "s
position and heading '_
to a more tragic situ-
ation. What precipi-
tated this article
rather than the usual NAI
education of natural
health products was WELL
the Super Bowl com-
mercials. JOUR
Outside of some
cute ones, most of the Ray 1
expensive commer-
cials were rather
gross and violent. Already in
my contacts, people seem to
laugh it off as they do of the
increased violence in my
favorite sport, football. Day
after day credit card companies,
insurance agencies, the auto
world and many legitimate
companies must try to appeal to
our brains and emotions, as if
we are idiots and insensitive
human beings.
We are also becoming a
nation of avoidance of healthy
compassion to others, many of
the younger society in particu-
lar, think they are first, last and
always. Older citizens are giv-
ing up their ideals, beliefs and
dreams that have in the past
made America so great and
respected. We are losing it and
if you don't think so, just talk to
each other, watch your TV, real-
ly look into the changes in the
way we have become to each
other.
SThe question then is where
does a nation's health go affect-
ed by this terrible change in our
culture and what can we do
about it.
Read intently to the figures
of what has been happening in a
weakening country the past
years and has touched us all so
badly.
Children spend 28 hours
watching TV twice as much as
weekly schooling. They will
watch more than 200,000 acts
of violence, including 16,000
murders before age 14. Polls
show that three quarters of the
public find TV too violent and
restrictions should be better
than gun control. Watching TV
has been linked to obesity,
tobacco usage, increased alco-
hol intake, decreased attention
span and decreased family
bonding. Include too, more sex-
ual activity.
Forty-six percent of all TV
violence takes place in chil-
dren's cartoons. Parents appear

people. Until that happens,
many of us will continue to suf-

the daily violence, or the lack of
love now that propels into such
hate, disrespect and at times

loving and caring life and still

Respiratory
Support Group
meeting set
SEBRING Highlands
Regional Medical Center will
host a Better Breathers
Support Group from 10-11
a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 14 in
the HRMC boardroom on the
first floor.
The forum is open to the
public with patients with all
respiratory conditions benefit-
ing. Refreshments will be
served compliments of
Lincare.
This month's topic will be
the Heart Steps Program by
Lincare Inc. Heart Steps is a
way that physicians can man-
age patients with congestive
heart failure in a home envi-
ronment. The program is pro-
vided to patients free of
charge. A free weight digital
scale is also provided for
patients to monitor their
weight daily. Lincare provides
the patients with education
and a monitoring booklet to
track their blood pressure,
weight, aid'meals. Patients


can then go back to see the
physician and he/she can tell
how well the medication and
or prevention is benefiting the
patient, and whether to change
prescriptions, etc.
Congestive heart failure has
one of the longest lengths of
stay for hospitals around the
country and to assist the hos-


pitals, physicians and patients
with a monitoring program
that allows for all involved to
play a more active role in
their healthcare, Lincare has
created Heart Steps.

It's what we do

Central Florida was dealt another devastating blow
last week when tornadoes raced across Lake,
Seminole, Sumter and Volusia counties, destroying
thousands of homes and killing 20.
And as usual when such a disaster suddenly occurs,
this state's great residents pull together to offer assis-
tance in any way they can.
Churches have sent parishioners and supplies to the
splintered communities. Service organizations have
offered their assistance. Some individuals in the state
have just felt the need to help and have gone to the
hard hit counties, offering help wherever it is needed.
Baby food and formula, diapers, ice, personal hygiene
items, canned food ... it's all finding its way onto
trucks and making the trip to those who have lost
everything in Friday's storms,
The American Red Cross, as one would expect, has
stepped up and is doing its part to help find temporary
housing for the victims, reconnect them with loved
ones and offer assistance where they can. Rotary
Clubs, including the Sebring clubs, are doing what
they can to offer up Shelter Boxes similar to the ones
they sent to the tsunami victims in 2005.
This is what the Rotary Club does during these nat-
ural disasters. It's what the American Red Cross does.
It's what we, as a compassionate society, do for our
neighbor, regardless of how far away that neighbor
lives.
Anyone who would like to help, but doesn't know
exactly what they can do, should consider giving a
donation to the American Red Cross, earmarked for
the tornado victims, or give to one of the Sebring
Rotary Clubs in hopes of sponsoring a Shelter Box.
The boxes are $900 each, but if everyone pitches in
the expense is minimal and the value of doing a good
deed in such a devastating time is priceless.



Look at what the


dog brought home


If you happen to live
around Seven-Mile Point and
are missing one fuzzy black
house shoe, I know where it's
at. I picked it up out of the
yard one day last week.
Pete is a half-grown pointer
mix, and I know he thinks
he's doing us a great service
by bringing home everything
that is not nailed down, but
his seek and find missions are
bordering on ridiculous.
Along with the shoe are
other trophies such as empty
soda cans, assorted carcass
remains, a length of rope, and
whatever else he might find
laying along side the road.
We've discussed this
detestable habit of his at great
length, and while he appeared
to be listening, he continues
to "hunt" and bring home
anything that catches his
fancy.
"Pete, you can't just keep
bringing stuff home like this.
Generally speaking, hunting
involves bringing home
something of use. I have no
use for one black house shoe
that is two sizes too small,
and someone somewhere is
walking around with one cold
foot and cussing you and your
lineage."
He cocked his head to the
side as though thoroughly
engrossed ini what I was say-
ing, and then that afternoon
went out to the grove and
brought home a rotten orange.
In Pete's book, there is noth-
ing too mundane to explore,
everything has some kind of
value.
I kept hoping that one day
his need to hunt would evolve
into something positive, and
finally one day last week, it
happened.
I-was sitting on the front
porch when I saw him come
around the bend in the road.
He was a good quarter-mile
away, but even at that dis-
tance I could see that he car-
ried something)in his mouth. I
was instantly nervous, as I
could not tell what it was.
"What have you got there,
Pete?" I asked when he was
w within hearing distance.. He
didn't answer, but then his
mouth was full. He trotted
into the yard and I squinted.


DIRT ROAD DIARIES

C.J. Mouser

"What is that?" I demand-
ed.
He stopped a few yards
away and stared at me with
that look he gets when he
thinks he's about to get yelled
at. By then I recognized one
limp rabbit leg dangling from
the bundle he carried in his
mouth. It appeared that he had
gone out and caught himself a
wild rabbit.
"I'll be," I said. "You final-
ly hunted up something
worthwhile."
Apparently he recognized
that I was impressed and
began to prance around dan-
gling that rabbit like a blue
ribbon, and it dawned on me
suddenly that he didn't seem
to know what to do with it.
"You're supposed to eat it,
dummy," I said, and his tail
drooped again. I sat down to
see what he was going to do
next. He stood there for a
long while, dropped the rabbit
and sniffed it and then picked
it up again. Then he went over
and lay down by the truck and
rested the rabbit on the
ground in front of him like a
sad stuffed animal.
We're a family of five with
three dogs, seven puppies,
two cats, about 50 hogs, a
crazy goat, four calves and a
dozen or so chickens. When it
comes to eating, you don't
mess around because if you
snooze you lose. Tinkerbell
Too, the 6-month-old little
butterscotch kitten that sleeps
on the hood of my truck has
learned this lesson well. She
does not mess around and she
will eat anything, so when she
got wind of the rabbit, that
Pete brought home, she.wast-
ed no time .in taking it away

A different kind of diet can be a big help


So, it has just been one of
those weeks. We all have had
them, where everything is
going fine and nothing really
is the matter. Yet, there just
seems like something is miss-
ing. Or it seems like there is
something out of place. Try as
you may, you are not able to
locate the area that has disori-
ented your mind.
It was after I decided to
ensure that everything was
rightly in its proper "home"
that I realized what might be
attributing to the problem.
When you are not filling
yourself with the proper nutri-
tion, it can often lead to this
feeling. I know most of you
have heard the saying that you
are what you eat, but this time
around it is going to be a dif-
ferent spin on the issue.


MURPHY'S LAW

Lindsey Murphy


The attitudes of your mind
and the way that you react to
different situations may be
attributed to the stuff that you
put inside your body.
If you are constantly filling
yourself with spiritual junk
food, no wonder you are
yielding those results. It is


kind of like filling a cup with
dirty water. When you spill
the cup over, you will not
have purified water, but
exactly the same dirty water
that you poured into it a few
days ago.
Now, do not get me wrong.
I am not a big fan of a check-
off list of things you are and
are not allowed to see and lis-
ten to. Yet, I am a big fan of
watching the intake of your
worldly diet. It does make a
huge impact upon your life.
When you are filled to the
brim with positive thoughts,
you cannot help but spill it
over with those who are
around you constantly.
Like I mentioned earlier,
this past week has not been
bad, but it has not been neces-
sarily the best either. It was


when I realized that I was not
filling myself with the neces-
sary positive nutrition of the
Word that I began to see why
this hole in my heart was
forming.
Perhaps you are like me,
when you do not have the
proper dosage, you get a bit
cranky. Or perhaps you are
not filling yourself up correct-
ly. Either way, try seeing what
a little more time spent on the
Truth can yield for you and to
you this week. After all, it
might just fill that empty spot.

Judges are

public servants
Editor:
In the Jan. 26 paper, a read-
er complained about federal
judges. I would like to add
my two cents.
As a prosecutor and
lawyer, now, retired, I have
appeared before many differ-
ent judges. I agree that one
will appear arrogant from
time to time, and this does
not reflect well on the judici-
ary as a whole. Procedures
exist for bringing inappropri-
ate judicial behavior to
account. The Florida Bar and
Florida Supreme Court keep
records of how many have
been reprimanded, suspended
or disbarred. The vast major-
ity of judges are courteous,
reserved and deliberate, even
when most of us would have
blown a gasket. The com-
plainer mentioned that he was
a party to the litigation, so I
challenge his objectivity.
When I taught college-
level courses, I required my
students to attend and watch
several hours of real court
proceedings. It had to be for
this assignment only; they
could not kill two birds while
dealing with their own traffic
tickets, etc. Many found it so
interesting, they chose to stay
all day or even to watch the
rest of that trial, which took
several days. The litigant
lawyers noticed them, asked
what they were there for, and
in time, asked how they
thought the trial was going.
Many persons enjoy watch-


ing court. Some for entertain-
ment, some to keep an eye on
the judges and prosecutors.
(Google keyword: court
watchers).
Our judges are dedicated
public servants who could
earn a lot more in private
practice. And who doesn't
occasionally lose their .cool
when adequately provoked?
We are all human. I encour-
age all readers to occasional-
ly watch a session of real
court. It's free, and it serves
our democracy for all court
personnel to know there are
objective witnesses present.
If you have any questions, I
have always found the
bailiffs happy to show off
their knowledge. Unless a
given hearing has been closed
to protect a juvenile witness,
court proceedings are open to
the public. You might even
get to see a celebrity getting
arraigned.
If the judge asks why you
are in the courtroom, tell
her/him that Professor Yawn
sent you.

Things wrong

with politics

Editor:
Isn't it rather pathetic that
two years prior to an election,
several wannabeess" have
already begun to raise and
have raised several million
dollars in an effort to be
elected to political office
while we have yet to clean up
the mess left by Katrina, we


have an immigration problem
that no one wants to solve, we
have crime, drug problems
that are overwhelming law
enforcement and an unfin-
ished war that is destined to
remain that way irregardless
of political bickering, and a
general public that is satisfied
with the status quo as long as
they have a tank of gas and an
available six-pack.
Observe the traffic on U. S.
27 and tell us there is a gas
problem. There is something
radically wrong with the pic-
ture of politics in our United
States and the answers are not
coming from Republicans
and Democrats. Neither is it
coming from
existentialism, Euro-social-
ism, our ultra-liberal educa-
tional institutions, creeping
communism in our neighbors
to the south or efforts to stop
global warming.
To those who can read,
including Gabriel, I recom-
mend "Cry Havoc" by Ralph
de Toledano. Those who fail
to study history are doomed
to repeat it.

Bush continues

with his lies
Editor:
Recently I read some let-
ters actually praising George
W. Bush, an individual who
snubs his nose at the
Constitution and thinks he's
above the law. I wonder what
planet those writers call
home? He's without the


slightest doubt, the worst
president this country has
ever had to suffer.
When Clinton left office
there was a $230 billion sur-
plus. Bush squandered that
money and we now have -an
$8 trillion deficit. They wrote
about an increase in jobs, tell
that to the workers at Ford
and General Motors. An
increase in stocks? They
should read "Blood Money"
by T. Christian Miller and
find out where those compa-
nies made their money. They
failed to mention the huge
increase in home foreclo-
sures. They wrote about the
Democrats who believed
Bush and voted for the inva-
sion of Iraq. Who would have
thought that the president of
the United States would lie to
Congress, the people of this
country and the United
Nations to promote his desire
for war? Bush made the state-
ment "one of the keys to
being a great president is to
be seen as a Commander in
Chief" (May 1999).
They mention Clinton's
admittedly stupid affair, and
lying about it. Who died
because of his actions? As of
this writing hundreds of thou-
sands, including 3,100
American soldiers have died
and families have been devas-
tated because of the lies Bush
told. His one true statement
was when asked "what did
Saddam have to do with
9/11?" he replied "nothing."
Never mind impeachment,
Bush should be arrested and

The key is legal

immigrants

Editor:
I agree for the most part
about Randy Ludacer's state-
ment. Immigrants are what
made this country great. I was
raised in a predominantly
Italian neighborhood with
generous sprinklings of Irish,
German, Scandinavian, etc.
They spoke their native lan-
guage at home but made sure
their children learned English
so that they could fit in with
the language and people of
this country that they chose.
When immigration laws
were instituted these people
came in legally. Some of their
relatives were turned away
because of illness or felony
charges. The immigrants also
came to this country and did
not expect anyone to give
them anything. They worked


and a tug, around the side of
the house and into a clump of
weeds.
Pete sighed and lay back
down, yawning, while the kit-
ten polished off his trophy.
We didn't see her again until
later that night when she wad-
dled up to the porch and
turned her nose up at her cat
food.
Since he can't walk across
the yard without tripping over
his own feet, I'm amazed that
Pete managed to catch a wild
rabbit, and since he missed
out on the reward of having
done so by being bullied into


hard and earned their way
into America's way of life. Of
the ones I know, none of them
feel cheated or put upon.
They did not get assistance or
medical or welfare. The
magic word here is legal
immigrants. Why do people
have such a problem with this
term?

go to such trouble again. After
all, why tackle something that

won't fight back?

The above figures came
straight from local retailers
and bulk suppliers and not
from some politician who
will not talk straight or does-
n't know what they're talking
about.
Such is the case as in
another local newspaper who
stated amounts of 15 cents on
gasoline and 13 cents for
diesel in Highlands County.
Their article did state this
money was for road and
bridge operations.
However, Florida Statutes
state that these taxes must be
used for public transportation
and nothing else. That is why
all off-road vehicles and
equipment are exempt from
these road use taxes.
For verification of the
above numbers, you may get
any of this information from
any local supplier who pays
these fees straight to the
proper government agency.
To determine the proper
intended use of these gas tax
funds, see Florida Statute
Chapter 336 on the Internet.
Chapter 336.025(7) specifi-
cally defines what is meant
by "public transportation
expenditures."
What will be of much
interest in the near future is
the overrun in the cost of con-
structing the new sports com-
plex north of the Sebring
High School. As the majority
of this construction was done
by Highlands County Road
and Bridge with your gas tax
money, let's see if more of
your "transportation trust
funds" are used for the bail-
out.

Global power

needs to go
Editor:
A notice to all who desire
to be the next president of the
United States:
Revoke global power, our
trade policies of the last 30
years have been controlled by
global powers destroying the
sovereignty of these United
States.
Nafta-Gatt and Cafta must
be done away with and the
yoke of global power be
thrown off if we are to sur-
vive as a free nation.
We are reaching a critical
mass and have reached a
point with our industries of
defense being moved into
foreign nations, to the point
where we do not have the
ability to supply our armed
forces. Global powers are
now suggesting that there be
no borders on the North
American continent, the
United States, Canada and
Mexico, thus losing the sov-
ereignty of all three nations.
This is being done without
the consent of the people of
all three nations. This global
power is dangerous to free
people worldwide, we all lose
control over our destiny.
Without borders; there can-
not be safety for any nation.
There cannot be enforcement
of laws, laws enacted to serve
the people of each nation.
These laws are different in
each nation. We have a union


of states, all who have a dif-
ference of opinion on laws.
When we agreed to unite as
states, we agreed to the sov-
ereignty of each state, becom-
ing as one, the "The United
States." We came very close
to losing this unity of states
in our great Civil War.
Now we are allowing glob-
al powers to destroy our
unity, which is our true
power.
"One nation, one language,
one people." To communi-
cate, there must be only "one
language."
Our military is being sent
to the four winds and our
industries, which are our
great strength, must be
recalled. If our industries
refuse to return then sanc-
tions such as tariffs must be
imposed and new industries
built to replace those -who do
not return.
Our new Congress and
Senate must recall our troops
and demand the rebuilding of
our military, for only in
strength can we remain free.
We must demand no
amnesty for illegals, no quest
worker programs, border con-
trol along with immigration
control and to revoke our
flawed trade policies of the
past 30 years. To do less is to
garner the wrath of the voting
public.
All who desire to be our
next president must address
these issues.

Keep Shrimp



Fresh

Delicious and easy to prepare, shrimp is a traditional
Florida favorite. Many Publix stores offer both fresh
and frozen varieties, so keep these pointers in mind
when handling and storing shrimp at home.

Thawed or fresh shrimp should be firm and free
of strong odor.

Shrimp may be refrigerated up to two days from
the time of purchase.

Shrimp may be frozen up to one month, but never
refreeze previously frozen uncooked shrimp.

Upon your request, the Publix Seafood
department will gladly steam or devein your
shrimp.

Sebring Optimist Club supports local


SEBRING During the
Sebring Optimist Club meeting
it was reported that the Boys &
Girls Club is working on a golf
tournament to raise funds to
provide programs for some 80
children.
Sponsors are needed for dif-

ferent aspects like hole spon-
sors and door prizes. Call
Woodrow White for details at
214-4316.
The organization also seeks a
permanent home for the Avon
Park center. The current site
will be demolished in 10
months. For possible sites in
Avon Park, call Forest Hilton at
452-2906.


The Early Learning Coalition
of Highlands County has a
waiting list of 167 children for
its programs. Citizens can call
the elected representatives to
urge support for funds to cover
those 167 and more this year.
Former Gov. Lawton Chiles
provided funds through the
tobacco lawsuit for this and
other programs, which the cur-
rent state administration has
frozen or reduced these past
four years. A phone call could
persuade state officials to
unfreeze those funds (like 200
calls from Highlands County
alone).

unwrapped a layer off the mys-

always free. For more informa-
tion, call Ottoway at 655-3673.


children's groups
working on a modified state law
relating to the issues of truancy
and bullying in public schools.
It appears that the state laws are
unclear on what authority
school officials and teachers
have in enforcing attendance
regulations and protecting chil-
dren from bullies.
Again, a phone call to State
Representatives Denise
Grimsley and Baxter Troutman
and State Senator J.D.-
Alexander will demonstrate
that people care about a stable
educational environment for the
kids. That's 385-5251, 298-
5220 and 386-6016, respective-

The mystery gift was returned

by Marge Kingston but she
found another wrapper.
Part 2 of the TOPS


President's six week program
was on "Clean Your Cabinets"

sugar snacks. If a person must

days of his hitch. In his dreams.

framework for the clock, and
Larry Levey put the dedication
ceremony together. Many
spoke of incidents with Bill and
of the many years of playing
tennis with him. He always
encouraged everyone to come
out and play even when they
were hurting or just recouping
from surgery or cancer.' Bill's
son, John and his grandson,
Brandon came from Chicago to
attend the ceremony. Money
was given for the clock and
plaque and the rest of the
money donated will be given to
management to place trees in


Bill's honor.
Our chili cook-off was
attended by 160 and was head-
ed up by Betty McColgan.
There were 14 entries. The peo-
ple's choice was Linda Alman
with "Chi-LI Chili" and the
judges' first place went to Jim
Jeffrey for "Wisconsin Beef &
Bean" with second place going
to Kathy Prentice for her
"Trim-n-Terrific Turkey Chili"
and third place went to Veda
Thomas for her "Cowboy
Chili." Chili and corn muffins
and Key Lime Pie ice cream
bars and coffee and iced tea
were served to all who attend-
ed.
The annual hobby and craft
show was put on by Joy Falkner
with many of our residents par-
ticipating. What a lot of talent
we have in our park. From
quilting to woodcarving to
artists of all kinds. Our annual
trash and treasure sale was a
huge success again this year.
Thanks to all of the community
for making this an outstanding
event. Lots of money was made
for Hansen House, Habitat for
Humanity and also for the
Ostomy Group. Someone's
trash was truly someone else's
treasure.

Beat Mulberry in

offense, early and the Di .g.:nr never looked
back Tuesday night, as the host team defeat-
ed Mulberry 58-36 td advance to the cham-
pionship game of the District 10-3A tourna-
ment and lock up a spot in the state playoffs.
Lake Placid will face defending district
champion Frostproof at 7 p.m. Saturday
night in the title game.
Frostproof defeated McKeel
O Academy of Lakeland to earn
58 a spot in the championship
Mulberry game.
Conlin Veley led the
36 Dragons with 16 points and
36 Kenneth Bittner added 12.
Cruz Muntz had 15 points for
the Panthers.
The victory guaranteed the Dragons a spot
in the state tournament field of 32 as both
the district winner and runner-up advance.
"I feel fortunate," first-year Lake Placid
coach Levi Williams said. "Our kids worked
hard and we started out with kids that did not
have a lot of varsity experience. I feel
blessed to be going to the state tournament. I
give all the credit to them and to God."
Williams was also quick to commend the
efforts of center Kenny Bittner. The big man

Devil blowout
By SCOTT DRESSEL

LAKE PLACID Nothing like a nice, leisurely
jog to keep you warm on a chilly night.
Avon Park' catcher Julie Lamb got to take that
trot in the top of the fifth inning after belting a two-
Avon Park run home run over the fence in cen-
Avon Park
ter field to highlight the Red Devils'
13 16-3 win over Lake Placid Tuesday
night.
Lake Placid Despite the: easy win and a 2-0
start to the season, Avon Park coach
Mike Cobb wasn't exactly thrilled
with his team's effort as mental mis-
takes on the bases cost the Devils at
least two runs.
"I wasn't happy with their play. Not happy at all,"
Cobb said. "We didn't play to our ability, we just
played good enough to win, and I don't like that at

PALMETTO A couple of
things were apparent after the
Sebring Lady Blue Streaks beat
Avon Park 45-35 to win their sec-
ond straight District 10-4A cham-
pionship.
The first was that the Streaks
proved they are the best team in
the district, even when they are
playing far from their best bas-
ketball.
The second was that if the
Streaks and the Devils, for that
matter want their season to

continue past Thursday's first
round of the playoffs, they are
going to have to play a lot better
than they did Friday night.
The Streaks (24-0) can't have a
four-point second quarter like


they did against Avon Park if they
want to avoid being knocked out
of the playoffs by the other Red
Devils from Lakeland Kathleen
for the second year in a row.
And Avon Park (17-6) definite-
ly can't get outrebounded 44-22
- which is just what happened
on Friday if they want to have
a chance to win at Haines City.
In fact, if either team struggles
offensively in the first half like
they did on Friday, odds are the
playoffs won't last very long. The

Streaks,

ousted
By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne @ newssun.com
WAUCHULA "It was a
tale of two halves," Sebring
head coach Princeton Harris
was left to say afterward.
There wasn't much more to
say, as the Blue Streaks' sea-
son ended in District 10-4A
tournament action with a 72-
52 loss to the Booker
Tornados.
In Tuesday's first game,
Avon Park was eliminated
with a 70-65 loss to Palmetto.
The early going of the sec--
ond game saw a Sebring
squad not at all daunted by
the third seeded Tornados,
edging out of a back-and-
forth first quarter with a 19-
18 lead.
There were nine lead
changes and five ties over the
first eight min-
utes, indica- Booker

A.C. Wilson
then pulled a
Charles Barkley imperson-
ation, grabbing the rebound at
one end and then charging the
length of the court for a lay-in
and a 29-23 lead.
But then the wind started to
pick up, figuratively, as the
Tornados closed out the half
on a 6-0 run to even things
up.
That run expanded to 15
straight as Booker booked out
of the half with nine straight
points.
Hoffner got inside to halt
the streak, but the Streaks
were soon back on their heels
as the Tornados seemed to be
coming from all directions.
An 18-4 run closed out the
third, and the hard-fought,
evenly matched first half now
saw Sebring looking up at a
58-38 deficit.
Ten more points from
Booker opened up the fourth,
ballooning the lead to 68-38
and essentially halting any
Blue Streak hopes to continue
the season.
The grit of the squad
showed, however, as they
continued to work and
trimmed the lead to the final
score.
And while this season has

ifying him for the regional wrestling tournament. Dumbleton was the only winner, but eight more Blue
Streaks, Brian Crane, Jim Phillips, Mike Famham, Bob Rode, Adam Olsen, Chuck Schermerhom, Shaun
Breeden and Ron McMahon qualified for the regional competition.

Sunday anything but super for Bears fans


The evening started out
nicely.
There I was, bouncing on
my couch in elation, getting
that rising feeling of good
things to come.
That will happen when your
home team returns the opening
kickoff of the Super Bowl for a
touchdown.
When Peyton Manning was
intercepted not too long later,
that feeling was getting
stronger.
Even when Manning did
connect with Reggie Wayne for
a touchdown, two things
seemed to bode well for the
Men in Midnight Blue.
First, that it took a horribly
blown coverage by the Bears
secondary for the Colts to
score to which I blurted out,
"You idiots!" and second,
that the extra point was mis-
handled, giving credence to the
idea that the inclement weather
would effect the dome team
more so than my home team.
Then the Bears scored again,
giving me thoughts that Rex
Grossman y had shown up and
that things were starting to roll.
But it wasn't long before
things started rocking, the
other way.
The defense was too conser-
vative, the offense became


And Another
Thing ...

futile.
Field goal for the Colts,
three and out for the Bears.
Touchdown for the team
from Indy, nothing to show for
the team from Windy.
The ship seemed to be sink-
ing it was certainly taking
on a lot of water.
When Adam Venatieri
missed his first ever Super
Bowl field goal just before the
half, there seemed to be a
shred of hope.
But the whole night was tak-
ing on a bad feel.
Even the anticipation of the
Super commercials was a bit of
a let-down save for the
Jessica Simpson (rapidly
becoming my new favorite
over the long-standing crush


on Carmen Electra) Pizza Hut
ads.
Prince's halftime concert
was nice, but soon made me
feel old, realizing that the
edgy, racy Prince of my youth
was now considered a safe, old
throwback.
The second half turned out
to be a throwback to all the
bad games Grossman had this
year.
He single-handedly turned La
second-and-one into a fourth-
and-23.
He threw two of the most
lame-brained, wounded-duck
passes for interceptions that
sealed the fate of this game.
Though I had already started
hoping for lame-duck status on
him, wondering out loud where
the heck Brian Griese was.
Truth be told, though, that I
didn't see the second intercep-
tion until the next morning.
After the first one was
returned for the fate-sealing
touchdown that lifted the Colts
to their 29-17 win, I gave up
on Rex and the men, and got
caught up in the X-Men.
It had a happier ending.

all. We need to stay with our game plan and
play hard every night. Their head wasn't in the
ball game and it cost us quite a few runs."
The Devils opened up a 2-0 lead in the top
of the first without getting a hit, then made it
6-0 in the top of the second when Lamb hit a
two-run double and Heather Barnes drove in a
run with a single after a run-scoring error.
The Dragons, playing their season-opener,
battled back with three runs in the bottom of


the second, two of them coming on Megan
Spurlock's two-out single to center.
But that was the last time the Dragons were
able to mount an offensive charge, and the
Devils steadily built their lead from there.
Two unearned runs in the third made it 8-3,
and a two-run single from Missy Lander and
Ashley Howze's RBI single in the fourth put
the Devils ahead by eight.
Lamb's blast with no outs in the top of the
fifth put Avon Park ahead by 10, and the
Devils added two more runs on an error and
got an RBI single from Kim White to end the
scoring.

just like he has been for us."
Sedlock said he's glad to
get his college future locked
up early so he can concentrate
on the season at hand.
"That way I can spend my
senior year without having
anything to worry about. It's
all taken care of and I can just
go out and play baseball,"
Sedlock said, adding that he
knows he will have to work
hard to be prepared to move
up to the next level.
"I have a lot of room for
improvement, but I think after


this season I'll be ready to
take that step."
Hitt said Tomlinson will
also be a player who can get
people out for SFCC next sea-
son, but he's hoping to turn
him into a player who can
also produce an offensive
spark.
"He's a hard-nosed kid. He
plays hard, works hard and is
a good student," Hitt said.
"I've known Justin since he
was a little guy and I've seen
him grow over the years. He's
a guy we think will be able to
come in here and defend for
us. He runs well and does a
lot of good things in the out-


field defensively.
"We're hoping we can
bring him along offensively
so he becomes a little bit
more of a catalyst kind of guy.
We're excited he's decided to
come to school here."
The Panthers have also had
six other players commit to
the program for next season:
Ricky Morales (C/Inf.), of
DeSoto; Leo Chang (RHP)
and Joe Terdoslovich (Inf.),
both of Sarasota; Gerald
Neufang (C), of Colonial
Forge, Va.; Pete Williams
(Inf.)., of Charlotte and Chad
Jackson (Inf.), of Lake
Region.

Continued from 1D
Streaks held a 12-11 lead after
the first quarter, then were
outscored by Avon Park a
whopping 5-4 in the second
quarter to set up a 16-16 half-
time tie.
"It wasn't very nice at half-
time, but I didn't want to get
them too rattled," Sebring
coach Robert Sampson said.
"I told the girls at halftime to
just come out and play a little
looser."
They did loosen up, helped
by the fact the Devils seemed
to lose track of forward
Hannah Shoop, leaving her
virtually alone under the bas-
ket for eight third-quarter
points six of them on a piv-
otal 9-0 run as the Streaks
opened up a 32-23 lead head-
ing into the final quarter.
"I think dominating the
boards made a big difference.
Hannah got open and hit a lot
of easy baskets for us.
Whitney (Lee) hit a couple
baskets for us," Sampson
said. "We had that spurt in the
third quarter and that made
the difference for us."
Lee opened the fourth quar-
ter with six straight points for
the Streaks, who moved out to
a 42-27 lead in the first four
minutes of the frame and
coasted the rest of the way.
Shoop led the team with 15
points and eight rebounds and
Lee had 11 points, but it was
the rebounding that really
made the difference. Brittany

The Sebring girls are all smiles as they celebrate their second straight District 10-4A basket-
ball championship Saturday night in Palmetto.


Bullock pulled down 14
boards for the Streaks and
Nikela Sullivan had 10.
Avon Park's Shantavia Sims
countered with 11 rebounds of
her own, but it wasn't nearly
enough to keep the Streaks
from dominating in the paint.
"That was our game plan
coming in here, to stop them
from getting rebounds, and
the total opposite happened,"
Avon Park coach Paulette
Daley said.
"We knew how we were
going to win this game is to


action.
"All season long, we try to
get the guys to approach each
game as if it were the last
one," head coach Eric Zwayer
said. "But it's different when
you're actually in that game
that if you lose, it will be the
last one of the season, and for
some, their career."
Such strain didn't show up
early on, as Avon Park battled
the fourth-seeded Tigers tooth
and nail.
Sophomore forward Marvin
Williams netted seven first-
quarter points, along with
four each from Virgil Cooper
and Xavier Caldwell to inch
the Red Devils to a 17-16 lead
after one.
Cooper, a scoring spark-
plug all season long, got Avon
Park started in the second
with three early points.
Hilton picked up some of
the scoring load from there,
scoring eight for the period,
but Tiger pressure was start-
ing to get the better of the Red
Devils, halting their posses-


stop them from getting
rebounds and, what do you
know, they got all the
rebounds. That killed us."
The task now for both the
Blue Streaks and Avon Park is
to fix those problems prior to
Thursday's first-round game
in the Class 4A playoffs. Last
season, the Streaks were also
undefeated coming out of the
district title game and ended
up falling 48-47 to Kathleen.
That experience should
make a difference this time
around, Sampson said.


sions and leading to fast-
break points for Palmetto as
the Tigers took over the lead
and extended it to 35-29 at the
half.
Cooper again got Avon
Park rolling to start the third,
picking a Palmetto pocket and
taking it in on the break and
then converting two free
throws to make it a two-point
game.
But the Tigers soon got
back into the flow and extend-
ed the lead, running of a 12-4
run before ending the quarter
up 49-40.
"We just weren't executing
well on both ends of the
floor," Zwayer said. "But we
gave effort and we battled
them."
That's when Hilton did all
he could to make sure the sea-
son didn't end.
Consecutive 3-pointers
opened he final frame, an
inside score answered a
Palmetto hoop, and two more
long-range launches found the
target to keep the Red Devils

"The girls have been there
now and they know what it
was like last year. I don't
think they'll let that same
thing happen again. They're
pretty well seasoned. We'll be
better this time than we were
last year.
"It was definitely a learning
experience last year because
for a lot of these girls, it was
their first time (in the play-
offs). It wasn't my first time,
so maybe I should take the
blame for last year, but they'll
be ready for Thursday night."

But in the end, it just was-
n't enough as the Tigers held
on for the win.
Hilton led Avon Park with
24 points, 14 coming in the
fourth quarter, while Cooper
added 12 and Williams 11.
"Of course it's not a great
way to end the season; we
made our mistakes," Zwayer
said. "But we've gotten better
all season long, and Avon
Park basketball is going to be
looking good for the future."
