County asked to sell utilities


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID Lake
Placid wants to buy the coun-
ty's utilities to facilitate future
land annexations.
County engineer and Placid
Utilities director Ramon D.
Gavarrete will brief the county
commissioners Tuesday on the
merits of transferring the plants
at Tomoka Heights (water and
sewage) and Highway Park
(water only).
"We would ask that Ramon
not enter any further capacity


agreements unless he requires
the land owner to consent to
annexation upon the town
becoming contiguous and own-
ing the utility," Bert J. Harris
III, attorney for the town, said
in a Nov. 15 letter to the county.
The governments are in the
early stages of discussion.
Gary Freeman, director of
Lake Placid's utility department
(a sewage and two water
plants), recently toured the
county's Tomoka Heights facil-
ity.
"It looks very good, excellent


really," Freeman said of the
plant.
The town still needs to com-
mission engineering and
accounting analysis to verify
the plants' physical and fiscal
soundness. He said a telespec-
tion (piping a camera through
the system) would accurately
portray the internal condition,
but would be expensive.
The inspection would include
flushing the system, vacuuming
it clean, inserting cameras and
taking samples of the pipe.
Depending on whether


cracks or crevices are found, a
smoke test might also be neces-
sary.
"We have a master water
plan," Freeman. said. "There's
another water treatment plant
going in (close to Tomoka
Heights). It's still in the engi-
neering analysis stage."
Chuck Oakes of Southern
Lifestyle plans to break ground
in two weeks for a 100-bed
assisted living facility across
U.S. 27 from Florida Hospital
Lake Placid.
Harris mentioned Oakes in


his request of the county that
new connections be required to
agree to annexation.
Oakes, who already has his
development permits, said it's
premature of Lake Placid to'iask
the county to make stipulations
on something that's still on the
horizon.
"There's no point in agreeing
to something that could, maybe,
should be, in the future might
be," Oakes said.
County administrator Carl
Cool said there's no recommen-
dation to the commissioners in


Tuesday's agenda packet,
explaining that Gavarrete will
make a presentation and field
questions.
Cool said the Tomoka plant
has an approximately $1.2 mil-
lion debt balance that is being
paid down by current rates,
which also cover operations and
maintenance.
Customers of Placid Utilities
currently pay more than Lake
Placid utility customers, but
that's subject to change.

SEBRING News-Sun
publisher Mosby "Chip"
Wigginton Jr. directed his new
management to put it all on the
line.
"There's no retreating,"
Wigginton said Friday, explain-
ing each leader will make a
promise to customers past,
present and future.
For the past five years, sev-
eral changes in ownership may
have resulted in personnel
turnover. Customer service had
ero6di' dff ''^d nd \\ I i Lggnion
wants to fix that.
, In his nine months here,
Wigginton has replaced all but
one department head, executive
director Romona Washington,
who runs the news side of the
house.
Production director Joe
Abandola came on board six
months ago. Justin Newby took
over as advertising director
three months ago. Circulation
manager Rick Fair is the real
newbie, having been here 2 1/2
months.
"Our customer service need-
ed improvement," Wigginton
said, explaining that the paper
needs to focus of what is key.
"We have a responsibility to
our community to, provide them
with the news of this area."
Most notable to the public


might be the recent "soft roll
out" of the paper's redesigned
front page, new fonts for bold-
er headlines and section name
changes that are more relevant
to the times.
In November, the paper bol-
stered its online presence with
forums at newssun.com, where
our readers can discuss hot top-
ics, share jokes or form friend-
ships..
But, a lot of changes are


occurring behind the scene to
keep the News-Sun the news
source for Highlands County.
"It has nothing to do with
management," Abandola said.
"The key factor to success in
this department is cross train-
ing."
Making sure others can do
his job is how Abandola. will
ensure the paper is published
on time Sunday, Wednesday
and Friday, whether he's here,


on vacation or out sick.
He promises a higher quality
product with better color repro-
duction from the paper's Goss
Community press. .
"I can't promise better circu-
lation, I can't promise better
editorials, I can't promise bet-
ter advertisements but I can
promise better production,"
Abandola said. "We're taking
chances, we're trying new
things."

Vision Statement
News-Sun Vision
Statement from the 2007
strategic plan overview:

"We are committed to

Fair can't promise better edi-
torials either, but as circulation
director he's promising better
customer service.
On Sunday, Wednesday and

News-Sun staff reports
SEBRING Many people
hear the call of the owl and find
it fascinating and enchanting.
For some reason the call of the
owl has almost a magical quali-
ty to it.
John and Linda Sbiegay love
seeing all the wildlife in their
yard, especially the owls. John
remembers one day while doing
some clearing in the back yard,
Linda told him to look up.
There sitting on a branch right
over his head, was a little
Screech Owl, about four inches
tall.
"What a sight to see. We put
food out for it and it stayed
around for a couple of days, but
then I guess, it had other places
to go to, so we have not seen it
since," John Sbiegay said.
Last week, Linda,Sbicgay
was thrilled when she heard the
Scall of the o\% I. She was watch-
ing TV iftiie time when she
heard it and said it sounded like
it was right in the kitchen.
"We thought that it must
have been sitting right on top of
our chimney, and the sound car-
ried out through the fireplace.
The next morning, we heard the
call of the owl again and we
were glad that the owl had
stayed on top of our chimney,
enjoying the warmth coming up
from the fireplace," John said,
explaining that no fire was
burning in the fireplace, but a
lot of heat escapes through it.
When the couple sat down
for breakfast however, they
heard sounds coming from
inside the fireplace. After
opening the glass doors and the
flue, John saw feathers up


behind the flue. The flue open-
ing was only about three inches,
so he unhooked the flue door
from the handle and was able to
open it a couple more inches.
The owl was sitting behind the
flue door where he could not
reach it. Several attempts were
made with fish nets and other
items, but it appeared the
Sbiegays would not be able to
reach it in that manner.
John placed a large box into
the fireplace, and put some liver
in it, hoping to entice it into the
box.
"We covered the fireplace
doors so most of the light was
blocked as owls are nocturnal
and do their feeding in the dark.
But after a couple of hours, we
found that this also did not
work," John said.
-He.,then. took a bent branch -o
out of one of their bird cages
and, tanrtd to, fiJh around witl~
it on the other side of the flue
door. After a few tries, he final-
ly got the owl to sit on the stick.
Slowly, he lowered the stick,
until he was able to grab the
owl by the legs and gently pull
it through the opening.
"The owl has to be one of the
most beautiful birds and I was
glad that it did not go into a
frenzy. It spread its wings and
sat there motionless.
They did manage to take a
couple of pictures before the
owl was released in the back
yard. It flew up into one of the
trees and seemed to be content
in being free again, they said.
"Seldom have I been so
delighted in my close associa-
tion with nature and the ani-
mals, other than the time that I


had a hummingbird sitting on
my thumb," John said.
During the owl rescue, John
said he did have on an extra
sweat shirt, elbow length weld-
ing gloves and eye protection.
"I am fully aware that as
beautiful as wildlife is, it is still
wildlife and should be handled
with great care. Owning birds
and knowing of damage that
they can do to us, I have great
respect for talons and sharp
beaks," he said.
The Sbiegays have been
doing animal rescue for more
than 40 years and have picked
up injured deer, vultures,
hawks, turtles and others ani-
mals.
"Without the proper knowl-
edge and equipment, you can
do more injury to the animal
and tonyourself.ajured-wildlife
can be especially dangerous, as
itt-is under extreme- stress :anti
often in shock. When an animal'
is in shock it can appear as
though it is tame and friendly ...
but when the shock wears off
you will be surprised of how
wild an animal can become.
Caterpillars, spiders and other
insects can sting, inflicting
great pain. Most snakes can bite
and many can be lethal. Leave
them alone and they will leave
you alone," John Sbiegay said.
He added that 98 percent of
all snake bites could be avoided
if people did not mess with
them. The only snake that ever
bit him was one he was stand-
ing on.
"Enjoy nature and the
wildlife, as it is one of God's
greatest gifts to mankind," he
said.

DCF unveils new method to report abuse


.TALLAHASSEE The
Florida Department of
Children and Families
announced Thursday a new
method to report child and
adult abuse. Floridians can
now visit the department's
Web site and file an abuse
report online. The secure
Web site is available to report
suspicions of child abuse,
abandonment, and/or neglect,
and the abuse, neglect and/or
exploitation of disabled adults
and the elderly.
"Whether it is reported
through the Internet or over
the phone, I encourage all
Floridians to take action when
they believe someone is the
victim of abuse," Department
Secretary Bob Butterworth
said. "It is the responsibility

AVON PARK Last week
Avon Park Middle School stu-
dents welcomed Wednesday's
early release day.
Students going home early
could catch up on their stud-
ies, hang out, or do whatever
their hearts desired.
But the seventh- and
eighth-grade students in the
FFA organization stayed
behind to work on one of
many yearly service projects.
"We want to help people as
much as possible," APMS
FFA president Brandon Gunn
said. "It just feels good."
Gunn and about 30 other
FFA members from the mid-
dle school helped landscape
the Habitat for Humanity
home of Bobby and Judy
Talley, which included devel-
oping a landscape plan and
doing the grunt work too.
"We spent about two hours
doing all the work," APMS
FFA reporter Ariel Starling
said. "We ripped out the old
- grassdug. the holes and plant-
ed plants- We do a lot of com-
munit* seq ice projects."

of not just the Department of
Children and Families, but
every Floridian to ensure that
no one in the state is neglect-
ed or abused."
In 2006, Florida's Abuse
Hotline, 1-800-96ABUSE
(800-962-2873), received
approximately 348,000 calls,
resulting in 253,871 reports
filed. However, many victims
of abuse receive no assistance
because their suffering goes
unreported. The new online
reporting technology provides
citizens with another resource
to protect the vulnerable and
assist the department in keep-
ing all Floridians safe.
The Web and phone report-
ing system should be used to
report concerns of abuse
and/or neglect unless a child,


elder, or person with disabili-
ties appears to be in immedi-
ate danger. If the abuse or
neglect is likely to result in
death or serious harm (with-
out intervention), call 911 or
your local law enforcement
agency.
To file an abuse report
online, simply visit the
Department of Children and
Families Web site at
www.state.fl.us/cf_web/ and
click on the icon titled
"Report Abuse Online."
In addition to the hotline
and online reporting, a fax
number, 1-800-914-0004, and
a TDD number, 1-800-453-
5145, for the deaf, hard of
hearing or speech impaired
are available to report
instances of alleged abuse.

afternoon by hosing off the driveway at a Habitat for Humanity
home in Avon Park. FFA members spent their afternoon pulling
weeds and planting new plants.


Students worked with local
landscaper Ted Brown of
Evergreen Nursery to include
plants that were cold tolerant
and easy to care for.
"I've been working with
kids and Habitat for
Humanity for years. I can
never give back what I

feel," Brown said.

out and work this hard for a
good cause," Duke said.

Remember

When The Word

"Service" Meant

Something?
SWe remember when people took the time to
serve others. Our family has been helping
families here for many years. A our town
has grown, we have grown too, with more
specialized services, such as out-of-town
arrangements, pre-arrangements, cremations
and a grief recovery program. Even though
we have grown, our dedication to service is
still the same as it was years ago. And, we
think that's really something.

OPEN EAR HEA

Isn't all hearing "open ear"?
Not for people who wear hearing aids. When you think of hearing
aids you think of big, bulky "horseshoes" on the ear...or what looks
like a wad of pink "chewing gum" inside the ear...both of which
plug up your ears....BUT NOT ANY MORE!

Introducing Open Ear Hearing
Great Hearing in Noisy Environments
No "Plugged Up" Feeling
No Whistling
Light weight...you won't notice it
Small and discrete...no one else will notice
it either!


Open Ear Hearing Aids
are virtually invisible!

ed, suppressed, hidden, lost and recovered. It has been hunted down, stolen, and bought
for vast sums of money. Now for the first time in history, The Secret is being revealed to
the world and is being studied and practiced at Unity of Sebring.
A number of exceptional men and women discovered The Secret, and went on to become
known as the greatest people who ever lived. Among them: Plato, Leonardo, Galileo,
Napoleon, Hugo, Beethoven, Lincoln, Edison, Einstein and Carnegie, to name but a few.
Fragments of The Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions
and philosophies throughout the centuries. For the first time, all the pieces of The Secret
come together in an incredible revelation which is life transforming for all who practice it.

PROPOSAL
Continued from 1A
Cornelius and Kerwin will
also be presenting their recom-
mendation of a public/private
organizational structure which
would run the park if acquired
by the county. Their plan is
designed to make the property,
which would be renamed the
Pearce Homestead Heritage
Park, self-sustaining so that the
county would not have to
assume a significant financial
risk in taking ownership of the
property from the South Florida


faith-based director who has a
vision for his advertising
department.
"I brought a grown man to
tears just by saying to him,
'You have potential. You're
going to hit one out of the ball-
park one of these days,"'
Newby said.
His greatest challenge is a
turnover rate that means faithful
advertisers often fall through
the cracks.
"Our credibility is on the
line," Newby said. "We're not
just going to hire anybody off
the street to handle your
money."
He said he wants to shut the
revolving door of ad reps by
sharing his vision with them,
and by showing them their
worth to the News-Sun family.
Little things matter when trying
to retain advertisers and
employees.
About a year before Newby
was born, Washington began
her career here as a typesetter..


Water Management District.
The organizational plan
includes various ways to raise
money to operate the Heritage
Park, including partnerships,
grants, volunteers, and charita-
ble donations. A variety of
grants would be available for
historic restoration of the build-
ing, Cornelius said, and the goal
is to generate enough revenue
to completely cover overhead
expenses.

time photographer, a news clerk
and one other editor in editorial.
Sports has one editor and one
full-time reporter. Both divi-
sions rely heavily on correspon-

Washington said news pro-
duction relies as much on com-
munity tips as it does on
reporters' resourcefulness.

Cracker Trail Ride





starts next Sunday


Special to the News-Sun
With a record 200 riders

expected to participate in the
20th version of the cross state
Florida Cracker Trail ride, the
association is hoping for dry
and cool weather as the con-
tingent plans to start at the
Kibler Ranch on State Road
64 on Sunday, Feb. 19.
The riders on horses,
mules and wagons will end
the week-long event at Fort
Pierce on Saturday, Feb. 26,
with a downtown festival
appearance before heading for
the Atlantic Ocean and a romp
on the beach for participants.
Association president
David Reed of Bradenton pre-
dicts "the best ride ever" as
the group commorates the
pioneer Florida cattlemen
who returned from the coastal
cattle shipments after driving
the herds cross state to ports
on the ocean or Gulf of
Mexico.
"This is our way of contin-
uing to call attention to these
hardy, early Floridians who

said municipalities are allowed
to charge up to a 25-percent
surcharge without justification
to customers in unincorporated
areas.
If they can justify it, cities
can further inflate rates to those
customers even though (or
because) they have no voting
influence on the council.
"I think they should pay the
same rate," Cool said.
He will suggest the commis-
sioners impose at least three
conditions if they decide to
transfer the two plants -
require Lake Placid to continue
fire flow protection and hydrant
installations as it expands con-


set the stage for the rural life
in this state," Reed said. "It is
an honor to visit the ranches
across the state on the
Cracker Trail route and enjoy
the nightly campfires with
nostalgic stories, hardy meals,
cowboy poets and other spe-
cial entertainment on this
anniversary ride."
The group will gather
Saturday for the "registration
camp" at Kibler's Ranch
north acres, where it has start-
ed since the inception.
Reed notes "the difference
is the acres once occupied by
cow camps are often taken
over in these past 20 years by
condos, which means some
maneuvering in our routes.
"But the State Road 64 and
State Road 66 to U.S. 98 at
Sebring and State Road 68 for
the final leg from Okeechobee
County to St. Lucie County is
still the major Cracker Trail
designated by the Florida leg-
islature back in 1987 when
the event was conceived.
"With assistance of the var-


nections; keep its new cus-
tomers' rates in line with cur-
rent town rates; and hold over
the Placid Utility Advisory
Committee so that the unincor-
porated clients would have a
means of influence on the town
council.
"It's worked so far," Cool
said of the committee's interac-
tion with Gavarrete and the
county.
In a Dec. 20 letter to the
commissioners, Harold F.
Owen, advisory committee
chairman, notified the board
that his committee opposed the
sale.
"Let it be known that the cus-
tomers of the county utility are
satisfied and extremely pleased
with the services provided by
the utility and its staff," Owen


ious county sheriff's depart-
ments helping facilitate traf-
fic, riders hope to travel
between 10 and 20 miles per
day," Reed said.
There will be meal and
camping stops, as well as
demonstrations at elementary
schools along the route, he
added.
Participants will be wear-
ing period dress when possi-
ble on the ride, with many of
the riders coming from out of
state as well as within the
state. Registration informa-
tion can be obtained by con-
tacting Reed or Ride secretary
Bev Smith.
Trail Boss for the 2007 ride
will be the association vice
president, Mischelle "Sam"
Harper of Okeechobee. She
and Julie Hinote of Lorida in
Highlands County, who will
also be on the ride, are the
only two veterans of all 20 of
the cross state events and will
be sharing memories during.
the event.


said in his written response to
Harris' letter.
Since becoming mayor of
Lake Placid, Thomas Katsanis
said he's asked Harris to focus
more on legal issues.
As a retiree, Katsanis said he
has more time than previous
mayors to devote to town
issues. According to Harris' let-
ter, the mayor directed him to
determine what steps need hap-
pen to move forward.
"There had been some criti-
cism from members of the com-
munity that he was almost run-
ning the town," Katsanis said,
noting that he and Harris work
well together and he likes the
attorney. "In reality, that was
probably almost true."

Edward Jones named one of


'Best Companies to Work For'


Named in the top
10 for companies
its size by
'Fortune'
For the eighth year, the finan-
cial-services firm Edward Jones
was named one of the "100 Best
Companies to Work For in
America" by "Fortune" maga-
zine in its annual listing,
according to the Sebring
Edward Jones investment rep-
resentatives.
The ranking appeared in the
magazine Jan. 22 edition.
Edward Jones ranked No. 29
overall. The firm ranked No. 9
on the magazine's Best Large-
sized Company list.
These eight "Fortune" rank-
ings include top 10 finishes for
five years and consecutive No.
1 rankings in 2002 and 2003.
In naming Edward Jones to
the prestigious list, "Fortune"
editors say, the firm's owner-
ship structure is one aspect that
makes the company great.
"(Edward Jones), organized
as a partnership, has more U.S.
offices (8,955) than Starbucks
has cafes. In 2006, the number
of limited partnerships was
expanded from 4,535 to nearly
12,000, more than a third of
employees," the magazine says.
The magazine also lists
Edward Jones as a top 10 com-
pany where associates feel
"encouraged to balance their
work and personal life."
"As a firm, we have always
believed that if we focus on
doing what's right for our


clients and our associates, we
will be successful," said James
D. Weddle, managing partner of
Edward Jones. "As Edward
Jones associates and partners,
we take care of our clients and
we care about one another. We
respect and appreciate every
associate whose work helps us
to meet the needs of our clients.
Clearly, that difference shows."
The "Fortune" "100 Best
Companies to Work For" rank-
ing is employee-driven, with
two-thirds of the scoring based
upon how randomly selected
employees respond to an
anonymous survey designed to
measure the quality of work-
place culture. The remainder of
the score is based on an in-
depth analysis of the compa-
nies' benefits and practices.
The "Fortune" ranking is one
of several important honors
based on associate input that
Edward Jones has received in
recent weeks. In early
December, the firm was ranked
No. 1 in "Registered Rep."
magazine's annual brokerage
report card for the 14th consec-
utive year. Last month, Edward
Jones ranked No. 3 among the
"50 Best Employers in Canada"
in the Globe and Mail's annual
listing in Report on Business
Magazine. Over the past year,
Edward Jones also has received
workplace recognition from 24
state and provincial publica-
tions in the United States and
Canada.
The firm also was ranked
first in J.D. Power and
Associates' annual survey of
customer satisfaction among


full-service investors.
The Sebring investment rep-
resentatives include Michael
Halloran, Chris Boylan, Ed
Burnside, Kenny Koehler, Paul
Vonmerveldt and Alan Holmes.
Edward Jones provides
financial services for individual
investors in the United States
and through its affiliates, in
Canada and the United
Kingdom. Every aspect of the
firm's business, from the types
of investment options offered to
the location of branch offices, is
designed to cater to individual
investors in the communities in
which they live and work. The
firm's 10,000-plus investment
representatives work directly
with more than seven million
clients to understand their per-
sonal goals from college
savings to retirement and
create long-term strategies for
their investments that empha-
size a well-balanced portfolio
and a buy-and-hold strategy.
Edward Jones embraces the
importance of building long-
term, face-to-face relationships
with clients, helping them to
understand and make sense of
the investment options avail-
able today.
Edward Jones is headquar-
tered in St. Louis. The Edward

Sunday, February 11, 2007 13A


SLOW
Continued from 11A
tant, Barbara Mishoe.
That made it about 9:15 a.m.
when McIntyre gave me lift to
the small barn where a crew
from the Avon Park
Correctional Institution was
assembling the frames and
mounting the curtains.
Right away I saw problems.
In the first place, the small
barn isn't so small. The hand-
ful of us, about a half dozen or
so, rattled and echoed inside. A
golf cart standing by, seemed
tiny.
In the second place, howev-
er, I realized that despite the
barn's size I was in a great deal
of trouble.
You see, the crew had been
assembling frames and hanging
curtains for three days straight
by the time that I joined it.
That meant the men had
become quite good at their task
- which is another way of
saying they worked quickly.
How quick were they?
Well, they were already
mostly done by the time I
arrived at the barn. They had
been working only slightly
more than an hour.
Then, in the two minutes
and less then 15 seconds it
took me to figure out how and
where to screw a standing pipe
into its matching flat metal
footer, the men had completed
one side of the barn.
In the following minute, and
maybe three seconds, that it
took me to master extending
the horizontal dividing rods
(which work exactly like old


fashioned vacuum cleaner
extending wands, right down
to the little push-button on the
side), the men had finished off
the other side.
That's finished off as in
over; as in completed; as in no
more to do.
And I hadn't done anything
yet.
I was ready to panic; then
came the one break of the day.
Deep in one corner, one
booth had been shorted some
room. An extra panel of cur-
tains was needed to square off
the space.
It turned out to be a
"Twilight Zone" minute,
because the space was assigned
to the News-Sun, my employer.
Suddenly I had a window of
workplace opportunity who
better to right this wrong, than
me?
But then came the "in the
third place" set back the
men from the institution were
so focused on getting the job
done quickly and right, that
they marched forward without
stopping. Like a line of ants
carrying home supper, they
continued to work without
waiting for me, basically run-
ning me over.
As I struggled to actually do
something constructive, I had
to fight off one well-inten-
tioned helper on one side, and
out-maneuver another, just to
keen a hold on the last piece of


tubing.
It was almost like playing
football. I tucked my head in
and used a discreet elbow to
gain room, so I was at least
able to hook up that last piece.
But that was the extent of my
contribution.
It was the hardest I've ever
had to work, just to get a
chance to try work.
So the main thing I learned
about setting up a fair is -
these people are serious.
Slow down with this bunch
and you'll end up buried under
a hay bale or tied up with ban-
dannas, or looking foolish with
nothing to do. The people here
have only one speed going into
fair week full throttle ahead.
It's move with them or forget
it.
In the end, this is a job I
would like to do over again,
but having learned an impor-
tant lesson next time I'm
bringing my sleeping bag, I'm
coming a day early, and I'm
not interviewing anyone until
after I've worked up a sweat.

Next week Christopher
Tuffley learns about being a
park ranger at Highlands
Hammock State Park. Any
Highlands County business
person who has a job they
would like to highlight in the
Tuffin'It With Tuffley feature
should call 385-6155, ext. 544.

writers, letters are limited to two per month and a guest column
can be submitted once every three months.
Opinions expressed in letters or columns, as well as any other
opinion piece are solely the opinion of that author and not nec-
essarily the opinion of the staff or editors of the News-Sun.
All items will run on a first-come basis as space permits,
although more timely ones could be moved up. Letters will be
edited for good taste, grammar, length and libel, although we try
to retain the overall flavor of the writer's style. Guest columns
are usually in a more prominent position and will be edited to a
higher standard.
We believe your viewpoints are just as important as any com-
munity leader or government official, so consider this a person-
al invitation to get your two cents in.


- Debate? Aren't we doing that?


Sometimes, government
simply puzzles me. The things
that people do while in power
can make you wonder if
there's something strange in
the water flowing to the state
and national capitols.
For example, there is some-
one in New York that wants to
make it a crime to I am not
kidding cross the street
while listening to a mp3 play-
er or cell phone. They claim it
will save lives, because two
people have been killed cross-
ing the street in New York
City, and one was for sure lis-
tening to his Ipod. The ban
would affect New York City
and Buffalo.
The site I read the story on
was conducting a poll.
Seventy-seven percent said
they opposed the ban because
it's a free country. I'm with
them. What next? Is some
government official going to
stand on street corners and
hold our hands so we walk
across the street right?
I haven't been to New York


City since I was very
young, but I'm will-
ing to bet that a),

matter what you are doing;
and b) something way more
important is getting ignored
while this issue is debated.
This brings me to the other
piece of government puzzle-
ment I want to address today.
As I type this, there is a hue
and cry because Senate
Republicans have blocked a
vote on a non-binding resolu-
tion condemning President
Bush's dealing with the war in
Iraq. The thing I keep hearing
in the hue and cry is that by
doing this, Republicans aren't
allowing a debate on Iraq.
There's currently no debate
on Iraq? You could've fooled
me!
There is no shortage of peo-
ple discussing the pros and
cons of the situation in Iraq.
Listen to the news. Pick up a
paper. Surf the Web. Debate
on the war is alive and well.


Are Senators really
trying to tell us they
aren't having an
opportunity to voice
their opinions on


Iraq? They need to be able to
have a vote on the resolution
to make their opinions
known?
All right, let me give a
heads up to all of you who
don't know: The Senate
Democrats (at least most of
the ones I've heard) don't like
the war. They don't want
Bush to add troops to Iraq.
Some of them want to pull out
altogether, or yank funding.
Hillary Clinton is on record
as saying we wouldn't be in
the war if she'd been presi-
dent in 2002. If she is presi-
dent in 2008, she'll get us out.
Any questions on what the
Senate Democrats believe
about the war?
I am not opposed to debate
on the war. Nor am I saying
that people have to agree on
whether or not it's a good
thing. When lives are at


stake, we need to be sure
we're doing what's right.
But, all this nonsense about
a non-binding resolution to
announce the Senate dis-
agrees with the president?
OK, are Senators that hard up
for something to do in
Washington they have to
spend time on this? What
about, oh I don't know, bal-
ancing the budget, or tighten-
ing security on the border, or
doing their job, which last
time I looked didn't include
passing pointless resolutions?
Look, people, go ahead' and -
debate the war but make it
on your own dime, not mine.
And if you're in New York,
remember to stop debating
long enough to look both
ways before you cross the
street.

Riders need

legal alternative
Editor:
Recent letters to the editor
regarding ATVs traveling
through the woods to enjoy
nature: Why not walk to get
exercise and enjoy the quiet
and peacefulness of the
woods and do not frighten
away the wildlife. I would
like to share with your read-
ers my personal experience


and the results of the ATV
riders coming into our area.
In the '60s we moved to
Highlands County. When we
retired 11 years ago, we
chose the Leisure Lakes area
for the pristine beauty of the
woods and the abundance of
wildlife. Across from our
home there used to be a walk-
ing trail through the woods
that extended about two
miles. This trail ran along
trails and past a country
owned dam that supplied
water to the lake we live on.
Approximately five years
ago ATV riders found this
trail and began using it as
their personal playground. No
trespassing signs legally
posted have been torn down,
county metal signs stating No
ATVs were uprooted and
demolished, the dam that was
used to control the water flow
into the lake has been
destroyed twice so the ATVs
could ride down the creek
beds. The deer, turkeys,
otters, bobcats, gopher turtles
and even bears are no longer
seen in this area. The scrub
jays were also abundant and
would feed from your hands.
On weekends there have
been as many as 40 to 50
ATVs visiting this area. There


have been large fires started
for all night partying. The
noise and gun firing have
kept the neighbors awake and
when approached to please
keep the noise down, the par-
tyers made very insulting
remarks.
About six months or so
ago, while four ATVs were
racing down the road in front
of our home, one ATV tried to
pass another and lost control.
A girl, riding on the back of
the ATV, was thrown from the
ATV and received a very seri-
ous head injury. We saw the
accident and a call was made
to EMS and she was trans-
ported to the hospital.
ATVs have run through our
yard, as well as other neigh-
bors, late at night leaving
wheel marks and breaking
sprinkler heads. At the loca-
tion where trucks unload the
ATVs, their tags indicate that
about three-fourths of them
are from Highlands County
and the rest are from other
counties.
Beside the loss of habitat
for wild animals and the
serenity of the woods, the
trail has been obliterated,
looking as if a bulldozer had
been through. The trash, the
empty beer cans is a lost of


respect for the earth land and
the creatures and plants that
live on it. Due to the recent
efforts of the sheriff's depart-
ment, this problem has
improved considerably.
When you have com-
plaints, you should offer sug-
gestions for a possible solu-
tion. The ATV dealers, own-
ers and riders should get
together and form a club with
the purpose of obtaining a
legal area in which to ride.
Also there has been an ad in
the paper that welcomes
ATVs in Venus. Good luck
and safe and legal riding.

Trespass is

against the law
Editor:
The Feb. 8 Guest Column
in Highlands Today was a
very interesting article by
Wendy Layport about ATV
riders having the right to ride.
It raised two questions,
though.
1. Since when did the
"right" to ride convey the
"right" to trespass?
2. If you had no legal place

There is trouble

in the heavens
Editor:
Global warming, solar
radiation and even Earth-
grazing asteroids have capti-
vated the public conscious-
ness. Why now? The sun, the
asteroids and weather cycles
have been with us for thou-
sands of years. Nevertheless
anxiety is rising.
It is not surprising that the
Bible has a great deal to say
about all these phenomena,
and Christians should value
its observations over the con-
flicting hypotheses of modern
science. These days there is a
great deal pf talk about glob-
al warming and the cata-
strophic effects that it might
have on the Earth, about 20
years in the future.
Pundits, weather watchers,
environmental physicists and
even ex-vice presidents have
warned that the use of gaso-
line, natural gas and coal are
being burned at exponential
rates and this is causing satu-
ration of earth's atmosphere
with carbon dioxide. They
say this has trapped in the
solar radiation in a deadly
cycle that will plunge our
weather systems into an irre-
versible crisis.
Scientists seem to come
down on both sides of the
global temperature issue,
some saying that the data has
not sufficiently proven that
the atmosphere has really
warmed at all. Others ask
why, then, is the ice melting?
Given that it has been reced-
ing for several thousand years
now, what is the cause of its
acceleration?
Actually it might be the
sun. There is some evidence


that it has begun to give off
more radiation than in the
past. Sunspots vary from
maximum to minimum in a
predictable cycle. Their peak
activity comes every 11
years. Currently we are going
through what should be the
minimum phase of the cycle.
But instead of the normal lull,
scientists are recording
record-breaking solar activi-
ty.
If the present activity is
any indicator, we could be
headed for record solar radia-
tion. This being said, we
should note that since the late
1990s scientists have
observed that not only is
earth's polar icecap melting,
so are the ice caps of Mars.
For the last couple of cen-
turies those ice caps, com-
prised mostly of frozen car-
bon dioxide (dry ice), have
begun to melt, flooding Mars'
atmosphere with rising
amounts of carbon dioxide.
Students of Scripture know
that the Bible presents the sun
as an entity that is subject to
external control. In other
words, the Lord will send His
angels there, and order them
to modify its output. The
fourth vial judgment in
Revelation 16:8, 9 prophesies
just such a future event. ..
People who worry about
man's effects upon the global
climate should remember that
soon, two men will come to
Earth with the ability to stop
the rain. The "two witnesses"
will doubtlessly perplex, con-
fuse and befuddle the scien-
tists of their day, (Rev. 11:6).
How do they stop the rain?
Do they alter the jet stream?
Perhaps they control the sur-
face temperature of the
oceans, causing less water to
flow into the atmosphere.

Then again, with God's help,
they could command the sun
to alter its radiation output in
some way. Imagine what the
meteorological scientists will
be saying as all this happens.
Worrying about the weather
will graduate from an avoca-
tion to a compulsion.

big success
Editor:
The Sebring High School
Art Club would like to gra-
ciously thank all those people
and businesses in our com-
munity who so graciously
gave items to our fifth annual
Soup-Up-the-Arts fund-rais-
er. The local businesses are
awesome in their support of
this community and were
instrumental in this being the
best ever.
With their generous help
we were able to raise a total
of more than $4,500. Money
raised will go to help with
medical expenses for a very
special 10-month-old baby,
Malikiah Hosteen and student
scholarships.
This is a tremendous com-
munity service project for our
students. They created, fired,


and glazed 461 ceramic
bowls.
The joy they received in
helping little Malikiah is far
greater than any payment
they could have received for
their artwork. The lessons
they learned in service to oth-
ers is priceless.
This project continues to
grow every year and each
year our community busi-
nesses rise to the challenge
and respond unbelievably.
Please personally thank the
following businesses and
people for their most caring
support: Albertson's,Beef
O'Brady's, Blue Crab,
Brewster's Coffee House,
Captain D's, Chicane's, El
Rincon Latino, Rick and
Annette Hebert, Latin
American Caf6, Lake Placid

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop

Love someone

extravagantly
Extravagance astonishes
us. It amazes us. It may
even confuse or stun us.
Extravagance may leave
us a little heady. It may
take us a while to catch our
breath.
That's because extrava-
gance comes prancing in or
leaping across our experi-
ence as something that
goes beyond what's reason-
able or usually expected.
We often associate
extravagance with material
possessions like a huge
house with amenities that
far surpasses the average
home; diamonds and furs.
Or a trip in which one does
not lift a finger and is con-
tinually waited on.
But, imagine if we put
the word "extravagant"
before the word "love?'
What comes to mind?
Once again, we may
think materially. But will
jewels, furs and exotic trips
satisfy the need of the
heart?
Valentine's Day turns
our thoughts toward
expressions of love. But, it
is the one who depends on
God to enable him to love
selflessly that truly showers
the recipient in extravagant
love.
The reason is because
only God truly loves
extravagantly and we must
take our cue from him.
God demonstrated his love
to us by giving his Son,
Jesus Christ, to us to be
born in human likeness;
yet, fully God; to die in our
place taking upon himself
the sins of the world so that
by faith and his grace we
could inherit eternal life;
and, to have him indwell us
so that we could pour out
his extravagant love on
others.
The extravagance is
revealed in the fact that he
didn't have to do it. He
didn't have to leave heaven
and come to save us. But,
he loved us while we were
still in our sins and provid-
ed a way back to a relation-
ship with him.
The Bible teaches us
about love in 1 Corinthians
13: 1-13, NIV. Living out
this extravagant love in our
relationships is possible by
God's grace and his power
living in us. What love is
and is not is summed up
this way.
"Love is patient, love is
kind. It does not envy, it
does not boast, it is not
proud. It is not rude, it is
not self-seeking, it is not
easily angered, it keeps no
record of wrongs. Love
does not delight in evil but
rejoices with the truth. It
always protects, always
trusts, always hopes,
always perseveres. Love
never fails," based on
Verses 4-8a.
Such love is internally
pure and, though it may
manifest itself in material
ways, it doesn't depend on
external props. It is a mat-
ter of a devoted heart.
God's love leaves us
amazed, breathless and
exhilarated as it leaps into
our hearts transforming us.
Tap into his extravagant,
love. Such cherishing love
exceeds all expectations.
Srlah.

Heartland

Karaoke &

DJ expands to

meet demand

By CINDY MARSHALL
Night/Weekend Editor
SEBRING
J ohn and Cindy Lombardo
found they shared a pas-
sion for music when they
started Heartland Karaoke
& DJ more than 10 years ago.
Mutual friends introduced
the Lombardos while they
were attending a line dancing
event. After being engaged for
four years, the Lombardos
were married Aug. 26, 1996,
and the weekend after their
honeymoon was when they
started their first karaoke job at
Duffer's Sports Grille in
Sebring. They have been there
ever since.
"Duffer's was our first place
and we were there on Saturday
nights," John Lombardo said.
The karaoke bug bit him while
he was singing during a local
karaoke night and decided to
give up installing window
treatments to go into the
karaoke business for himself.
"If you can't beat 'em, join
'em," he chuckled.
Now, Heartland Karaoke is
at Duffer's from 9 p.m. to 1
a.m. Thursday, Friday and
Saturday but as of a couple
months ago the person behind
the microphone has changed.
The Lombardos decided to
expand their business and hire
disc jockey Tommy Curcio, of
Sebring, to run the karaoke
business at Duffer's while they
book private parties and wed-
dings. They purchased their
second sound system seven
years ago so one of them could
run karaoke at Duffer's while
the other did the private par-
ties.
They have done parties and
weddings all over Highlands
and Hardee counties as well as
Longboat Key, Tampa,
Frostproof, Arcadia and West
Palm. In addition to doing
karaoke at Duffer's, Heartland
Karaoke has traveled to
Sebring businesses such as the
Trax Lounge, Blue Lagoon, the
former Cafe Delago and Pier
27; also the Ridge Lounge in
Avon Park and Lake Placid
Moose and Thirsty Camel
Lounge in Lake Placid.
"We used to do five nights a
week," John Lombardo said.
"We used to do three jobs on
Saturday and sometimes had to
split two jobs that night."
By adding a third person
into the mix, the Lombardos
can spend some time together
like normal couples. "This year
was the first New Year's Eve
we spent together since we got

Cindy and John Lombardo, owners of Heartland Karaoke & DJ, work behind their sound equipment set up at Duffer's Sports Grille in
Sebring. Heartland Karaoke is at Duffer's Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Disc jockey Tommie Curcio is now handling karaoke at
Duffer's for the Lombardos while they do private parties and weddings.


started," John Lombardo
explained. New Year's Eve is
typically a busy night for their
business with each going their
separate ways to do private
parties.
As the workload became
overwhelming, the Lombardos
saw it was time to grow.
Regardless of their growth, the
Lombardos have never lost
sight of making each event
special.
Weddings and class reunions
hold a special place in Cindy
Lombardo's heart. She recol-
lected doing the 50th class
reunion for Avon Park High
School. "They were all over 50
years old and so many of them
remained close and each had
their favorite songs. We went
down memory lane and played
all of their songs. It was very
nostalgic," she said.
Heartland Karaoke has a list
of music for brides to review
for their wedding day. They
even offer suggestions for typi-
cal songs that are played in
case a wedding party can't
decide what they want.
"Weddings are my passion,"
Cindy Lombardo said.
Although weddings offer a
lot of special memories, Cindy
Lombardo couldn't help to
reminisce on one wedding
where the bride's mother didn't
show up for three and half
hours and everyone waited


until her arrival because she
had the food. Cindy said at
first it.w-as awkward-but after
awhile no one wanted to leave
because they wanted to see
how the drama would unfold.
While Cindy Lombardo
loves the older music, such as
songs from Nat King Cole and
Andy Williams, John enjoys
pop music and rock 'n' roll.
They have learned to love and
appreciate all music so they
can provide a wide variety for
their clientele.
Cindy Lombardo, who also
works as an office manager at
Gator Ag in Lake Placid, puts
in 20 hours per week in updat-
ing and purchasing new music.
They have more than 18,000
songs in karaoke and another
18,000 songs for the disc jock-
ey business.
John Lombardo estimated
they have $38,000 in karaoke
music alone and that is not
including their equipment.
Heartland Karaoke & DJ has
been chosen the News-Sun's
People's Choice Award for
"Best Karaoke" for nine years.
John Lombardo proudly
claimed "Heartland Karaoke
has provided the longest con-
tinuous karaoke in Highlands
County for 10 1/2 years."
To book Heartland Karaoke
& DJ, call 655-3450.

Psychopaths can be hidden among society


E This is the third in a series on
"Understanding a Criminal
Mind."

We've been talking about
how "the criminal mind" oper-
ates differently from a non-
criminal mind and also about
the lack of remorse, empathy,
guilt responsibility and impulse
control. Interestingly, most of
us would want to add to this list
that a criminal mind is usually
"stupid" or "untutored" or
"below normal" in function.
But "the norm" is just the oppo-
site. Most psychopaths are aver-
age or above average intelli-
gence.
While the DSM-IV-R does
not have a diagnosis for a psy-
chopath, it does have a diagno-
sis for antisocial personality
disorder. The American
Heritage Dictionary defines a
"psychopath" as "A person with
antisocial personality disorder,
especially one manifested in
aggressive, perverted, criminal
or amoral behavior."
Everyone has a personality
- basically it is "who you are"
- it's what makes you unique.
Our personalities are made up
of our behavior, our tempera-
ment, our emotions and our
mental functioning. Our per-
sonality describes the character
of our emotion, the character of


our thoughts patterns, and our
behavior. All of these character-
istics influence our pattern of
perceiving the world around us,
our way of relating to our
world, and our way of thinking
about our environment, our-
selves and others.
Personality traits are the
prominent aspects that we
exhibit in everything we do.
Only when our personality
traits are rigid and cause diffi-
culty in our ability to function
in our environment, or cause
distress to others, do we consid-
er them a "personality disor-
der." There are a lot of theories
about personality disorders,
involving different ideas about
the relationships between our
personality and our environ-
ment, other personalities, and
mental functions. There are also
a lot of different theories about
the way personalities develop
and the causes of personality
disorders.
Stanton E. Samenow, PhD.,
stated, "People who cannot con-
tain their urges to harm (or kill)
people for no apparent reason
are assumed to suffer from
some mental illness. However,
they may be more cruel than
crazy. They may be choosing
not to control their urges. They
know right from wrong and
they know exactly what they're


doing, and they defi-
nitely are not insane, at
least according to the
consensus of most
scholars."
"Antisocial person-
ality disorder affects
about 4 percent of the
general population,
and sociopaths affect
about 3 percent of all MIND
males in our society.
Psychopaths are rare, Charl
found in perhaps 1 per-
cent of our popula-
tion."
While Antisocial Personality
Disorder is practically synony-
mous with criminal behavior,
the majority of people with this
particular affliction are law
abiding. You might be working
with one. Consider the person
who took credit for your big
sale, who blackmailed the
receptionist and got her fired,
who sweet-talks the boss every
day and he falls for it. This per-
son feels no remorse for all the
trouble s/he causes. They have
no conscience. And any empa-
thy seems fake. Even though
there is a lot of trouble caused
in the office, they keep getting
rewarded for it. Upper manage-
ment loves them. You think to
yourself, "What a psychopath,"
and you may be right.
Looking at the clinical defi-


nation of a psy-
chopath (a person
with an antisocial
personality disor-
der, manifested in
aggressive, pervert-
ed, criminal or
amoral behavior
without empathy or
remorse), you can
MATTERS probably name a lot
of people you have
en Stroup dealt with over the
"-" years who fit this
mold. And being
intelligent, they are
naturally attracted to the busi-
ness world. Their personality is
seen as appropriate because
they exhibit traits such as
aggressiveness and assertive-
ness which is often the charac-
teristics of a good leader.
Antisocials come in all
shapes and sizes and psycholo-
gists consider the juvenile ver-
sion of it to be juvenile conduct
disorder. The main characteris-
tic of it is a complete and utter
disregard for the rights of others
and the rules of society. They
seldom show anxiety and don't
feel guilt.
Samenow stated, "the field of
criminology identifies 65 .per-
cent to 75 percent of all con-
victed criminals as having
Antisocial Personality
Disorder," and some criminolo-


gists refer to this disorder as a
"wastebasket category."
The sociopath, on the other
hand, "is chiefly characterized
by something wrong with the
person's conscience. They
either don't have one, or its full
of holes like Swiss cheese, or
they are somehow able to com-
pletely neutralize or negate any
sense of conscience or future
time perspective. Sociopaths
only care about fulfilling their
own needs and desires self-
ishness and egocentricity to the
extreme. Everything and every-
body else is mentally twisted
around in their minds as objects
to be used in fulfilling their own
needs and desires." The Web
site, www.faculty.ncwc.
edu/toconnor, for those of you
who are interested in more
information, is loaded with
interesting comparisons, defini-
tions, analysis and additional
internet resources.
From Chapter 8 of Stanton
Samenow's book, "Straight
Talk About Criminals" (1998),
he states: "Certain people are
like non-arrestable criminals;
they behave criminally toward
others but they are sufficiently
fearful and knowledgeable of
the law so that they do not com-
mit major crimes. We all know
them: individuals who shame-
lessly use others to gain advan-


tage for themselves. Having lit-
tle empathy, they single-mind-
edly pursue their objectives and
have little remorse for the
injuries they inflict. If others
take them to task, they become
indignant and self-righteous
and blame circumstances. Such
persons share much in common
with the person who makes
crime a way of life. Although
they may not have broken the
law, they nonetheless victimize
others."
So how can we understand
the murder of Nick Sotilli?
According to Samenow, psy-
chopaths can only be under-
stood in terms of them being
"morally depraved individuals
who represent the monsters in
our society. They are unstop-
pable and untreatable predators
whose violence is planned, pur-
poseful and emotionless."

SEBRING Tanglewood
Actors Guild proudly presents
"Steel Magnolias" at the
Tanglewood clubhouse.
The dates will be at 7 p.m.
Thursday through Saturday,
Feb. 22-24.
The play takes place in just
one location, a beauty parlor in
Chinquapin, La. Truvy (Judy
Chastain) presides over the
establishment, which serves as
gossip central for the small
town. At the start of the play,
she hires the shy Annelle
(Marilyn Werry) as her new
assistant. Then everyone meets
Clairee (Erma Anderson), a
- well-dressed widow with an
acerbic sense of humor. Clairee
particularly enjoys teasing and
taunting Ouiser (Rosie Barnes),
a well-to-do neighbor with a
foul disposition. "I'm not
crazy," Ouiser says, "I've just
been in a very bad mood for 40
years."
Playwright, Robert Harling
has a knack for writing amusing
quips and his characters rattle
them off with regularity. Truvy
gets some of the best ones, such
as "Time marches on and
eventually you realize it's
marching across your face."

crazy husband has been shoot-
ing birds all morning, driving
Ouiser (and her ugly dog) nuts.
M'Lynn's pretty daughter,
Shelby (Theresa Reynolds), is
about to marry a good ol' boy
named Jackson. Shelby's
favorite color is pink, which
naturally figures prominently in
the wedding decor. "That sanc-

down with Pepto-Bismol,"


M'Lynn cracks.

REAL ESTATE MARKET

Charles J. Kovaleski


Time to buy:

Assembling

your real

estate team
Whether you're thinking
of buying a condo, a town-
house or a single-family
home, the Florida real
estate market is hot.
Permits for new home con-
struction throughout the
state have skyrocketed -
up 60 percent in some
counties while desirable
multifamily properties are
being snapped up in pre-
construction phases.
The residential real estate
market is still booming, and
it appears that Floridians
across the state are ready to
buy. Are you one of them?
If so, how serious are you?
If the answer is very seri-
ous, take the time to assem-
ble a team of real estate
professionals who can help
you attain your home-own-
ership goals.
Buyers often mistakenly
believe all they really need
is a good real estate agent
or broker to make a good
deal. But the most glitch-
free deals happen when the
buyer has put together a
real estate team that
includes a real estate attor-
ney, an appropriate lender,
an inspector, an appraiser
and a surveyor,
- -Here's what each-can -
pffer you:
Real estate agent/bro-
ker. If you're enticed by
the notion of saving money
by purchasing a home with-
out a real estate profession-
al, remember that real
estate is a time-consuming
process. A good agent will
work about eight to 10
hours behind the scenes for
every hour he or she spends
with you weekends,
nights and holidays. Are
you willing to put in that
kind of time? Would you
know what to do?
A good agent will find
the home that meets your
needs in terms of price
range, areas of town you
like, number of bedrooms,
etc. They will also negoti-
ate price and purchase
terms for the home on your
behalf, prepare a contract,
coordinate property inspec-
tions and the closing, as
well as offer referrals for
other experts.
n Real estate attorney:
Serious home buyers usual-
ly hire legal counsel before
signing a purchase contract
to help with questions such
as income tax or estate tax
consequences, property
taxes, zoning or special
assessments, title issues and
the accuracy of the proper-
ty's recorded legal descrip-
tion.
Your real estate attorney
works for you and their job
is to protect your interests.
They will review, and if
necessary, revise the pur-
chase contract to make sure
your issues and concerns
are being addressed, includ-
ing obtaining a title search
and evaluating the status of
the property's title. Your
real estate attorney can also
issue your title insurance;
the extra bonus here is that
if your attorney acts as the
closing agent and provides
your title insurance, no
additional fees will be
charged to the buyer.
Your attorneys will also
prepare or review the clos-
ing statement and other
closing documents prior to
the closing, and will answer
any questions you may
have relating to the title and
transaction, including


deeds, mortgages and clos-

Dawn Dell takes top honors



at Heartland banquet


Dawn Dell was named 2006
Realtor of the Year during the
recent Heartland Association of
Realtors annual banquet.
Dell started selling real estate
in 2002 after working as an
account executive at the News-
Sun.
Her father, Pat, started sell-
ing real estate in Highlands
County in 1979. She has
worked with her dad since
entering the real estate field.
Now, Dawn Dell plans to
obtain her brokerage license
and take the reins from her dad.
-It truly is a family affair.
Dawn and Pat have been selling
real estate together for the past
four years. Dawn's husband
Chris joined the team last year
and nowhere 15-year-old daugh-
ter is, showing an interest in the
business.

New officers

installed at

Lake Placid

Board of

Realtors
By CAROL HEAUSLER
Lake Placid Board of Realtors
Congratulations to Lake
Placid Realtors Brittany and
Drew Phypers. They received
semi-finalist (second place)
recognition from the Florida
Farm Bureau as Outstanding
Young Farmers and Ranchers.
What an accomplishment. We
are proud of y'all.
The Phypers are another
shining example of how deeply
Realtors are involved in the
community.
Congratulations, also, to
newly installed officers and
directors of the Lake Placid
Board of Realtors. Installation
ceremonies took place at our.
first monthly meeting, on Jan.
3, at the Elk's Club, with
Florida Association of Realtors
District Vice President Ben
Crosby of Winter Haven presid-
ing.
The board includes:
President Marie-Claire Hoy
(MC 2000 Realty);
Vice-president Brittany
Phypers (Premier Realty of
Lake Placid, Inc.);
Secretary C.B. Brewer (All
About Realty-Lake Placid);
Treasurer Gene Reese
(Sebert E. Reese Real Estate);
Director Jean Deuth
(MC2000Realty);
Directors Carole Polk (C.S.
Edwards Realty, Inc.), Rita
Youngman (Coldwell Banker


his daughter named Realtor of
the Year last month. He was
coaching a Sebring High
School varsity basketball game
the same night as the banquet.
"We knew I had been nomi-
nated, but I had no idea I would
actually win," Dawn Dell said.
She explained that Realtor of
the Year is determined not by
how much real estate the person
sells, but also by how much
activity there is with the
Heartland Association of
Realtors, how much continuing
education is completed and
how much the person does in
the community.
Dell said she closed more
than $8 million last year, "and
that was supposedly in a
depressed market."
"I was absolutely shocked
(about the win). I was very


humbled that I had been picked
by my peers. I appreciate the
fact that I was acknowledged
for all of the hard work I have
done. That is always nice to
see," she said.

Other winners were:
Rachel Murphy and
Alfredo Perez, 2006 Rookie of
the Year;
Janice "JP" Panteja, 2006
Association Achiever;
Linda W. Boring, 2006
Hall of Fame;
Sue Dean and Jeanne Lee
Butler, 2006 Congeniality
Award;
Heartland National Bank,
2006 Affiliate of the Year.
Lucy Saldarini was presented
the Lifetime Service Award for
her 40 years of service and ded-
ication to the real estate indus-
try.

By JASON ALDERMAN
You'll likely face many
major decisions to make when
you're ready to take the home-
ownership plunge, not the
least of which is choosing the
right kind of mortgage for
your needs. Mortgage options
used to be fairly limited, but in
recent years new varieties
have abounded.
Here are some of the more
common types:
Fixed-rate mortgage. You
make the same monthly pay-
ment throughout the term of
your loan, usually 15, 30 or
even 40 years. Shorter-term
mortgages offer lower interest
rates but higher monthly pay-
ments, so you may not be able
to afford as expensive a house.
However, over the life of the
loan you'll pay thousands of
dollars less in interest and,
you'll build equity in your
home much more quickly.
Adjustable-rate mortgage
(ARM). Your interest rate and
monthly payment move up or
down, depending on how the
market index it's tied to per-
forms. Initially, ARM interest
rates are relatively low and
don't change; then the rate
'becomes "adjustable" and may
change at predetermined inter-
vals, depending on market
conditions. Warning: When
rates climb, ARM payments
can rise sharply, often by hun-
dreds of dollars a month.


Interest-only loan.
Usually ARMs, these loans
require you to pay only the
interest portion of the loan for
a specified period often 10
years. After that, you begin
paying the loan principal
amount at an accelerated rate.
Veterans Administration
(VA) loans. Designed for hon-
orably discharged, active-duty
veterans, these loans feature
no down payment,.low origi-
nation fees and low interest
rates. To see if you qualify, go;
to www.homeloans.va.gov.
Federal Housing
Administration (FHA) loans.
These loans are guaranteed by
the FHA and offer low down
payments and less-stringent
credit guidelines than conven-
tional loans. To learn more, go
to www.fha.gov.
Subprime mortgages.
People with damaged credit
can sometimes secure these
loans, albeit at much higher
interest rates than "prime"
loans. Subprime rates and,
terms vary widely because.
lenders weigh credit risk dif-,
ferently, so if you fall into this'
category, comparison shop -i
and do everything you can toi
improve your credit score so!
you can refinance later at a
better rate.
Jumbo mortgage. If you
need to borrow more than
$417,000 to buy your home

Americans head West, Southeast; say 'good-bye' to Central Northeast region


A strong mobility pattern
continued in 2006 as njany
Americans packed up their
belongings and headed to' the
West and Southeast parts of the
country, while the Central
Northeast region of the country
experienced an increase in resi-
dents departing. The statistics
are among the findings of
United Van Line's 30th annual
"migration" study that tracks
where its customers, over the
last 12 months, moved from and
the most popular destinations.
The findings were announced
by Carl Walter, vice president
of United Van Lines, the
nation's largest household
goods mover. I
For 2006, the accounting is
based on the 227,254 interstate
household moves handled by
United among the 48 contigu-
ous states, as well as
Washington, D.C. In its study,
United classifies each state in
one of three categories "high
inbound" (55 percent or more
of moves going into a state):


"high outbound" (55 percent or
more of moves coming out of a
state); or "balanced." Although
the majority of states were in
the "balanced" category last
year, several shoWed more sub-
stantial population shifts.
Moving in
Known for hospitality and
gracious style, the Southeast
states welcomed many new res-
idents in 2006, with North
Carolina coming in as the top
destination (64.0 percent
inbound). South Carolina (60.6
percent) continued its 13-year
inbound tradition, while
Alabama (57.5 percent) experi-
enced its fourth year as a high-
inbound location. Although
Tennessee saw less people
move in this year (55.8 percent
in 2006, 58.0 percent in 2005),
it still captured a spot on the
high-inbound list.
Although not considered
"high inbound," other
Southeastern states also greeted
new residents. Kentucky (52.9
percent) continued its five-year


inbound trend; Georgia (53.9
percent) continued its 25-year
trend as an inbound state; and
Mississippi (50.1 percent)
boasted a 3.2 percent increase
in moves to its state as com-
pared to 2005.
Supporting the idea that
Americans still believe there is
fortune to be found in the West,
the Western portion of the coun-
try emerged as a top migration
spot. Capturing the No. 2-
inbound ranking, Oregon (62.5
percent) sustained its 19-year,
high-inbound trend. While still
a high-inbound state, Arizona
(55.4 percent) saw roughly five
percent less people move in
than last year; however, Nevada
(5909 percent) continued its
lucky streak of being high
inbound since 1986.
Both New Mexico (57.9 per-
cent inbound, a 3.7 percent
increase) and Utah (56.0 per-
cent inbound, nearly six percent
increase) saw a rise of incoming
residents as compared to last
year's data. Idaho's (59.3 per-

cent inbound) high-inbound
ranking has held steady for the
past 19 years; and Montana
(55.0 percent inbound) retained
its five-year inbound status.
Although not considered
"high inbound," other Western
states witnessed increases of
incoming moves as compared
to last year: Colorado (54.7 per-
cent inbound) continued its
four-year inbound trend and
had 1.2 percent increase and
Wyoming (54.4 percent
inbound) boasted a 4.3 percent
increase.
Rounding out the high-

1989 and saw slightly (0.7 per-
cent) more people move in as
compared to last year.
After being outbound last
year, Nebraska (52.5 percent
inbound) turned a new leaf and
has a 3.2 percent more moves in
as compared to 2005.
Although it is considered a
balanced state, Oklahoma (50.0

Your appraiser. Your
appraiser evaluates a home to
determine its fair market value
- a price range a given prop-
erty will bring on thp open
market, assuming neither buyer
nor seller is under any extreme
pressure to buy or sell. To
determine this number, the
appraiser uses comparative
market analysis, interviews
real estate agents and govern-
ment real estate tax personnel
and tours the property, taking
into account the square
footage, floor plan, number of
rooms and baths, upgrades,
overall condition of the home
and the surrounding neighbor-
hood.
Your surveyor. Obtaining
an accurate survey is'always
wise so that both the buyer and
seller know and agree on
exactly what is being trans-
ferred, and to ensure that the
lot lines are unobstructed by
things like fences, garages,
driveways or pools. Surveyors
are usually hired by the buyer,
although this is negotiable. If
the survey turns up a property
boundary problem, it's a good
idea to speak with your real

(except in certain higher-priced
areas, where the limit is higher),
you'll need a Jumbo mortgage;
loans under that amount are
called conventional mortgages.
These dollar limits are set each
year by Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac, the publicly char-
tered corporations that buy
mortgages from lenders. Jumbo
loans typically come with high-
er interest rates than conven-
tional loans.
Balloon mortgage. These
loans offer lower rates and pay-
ments for a specified term (usu-
ally three to 10 years); then a
lump-sum payment of the prin-
cipal balance becomes due.
Balloon mortgages can some-
times be converted to fixed- or
adjustable-rate loans, but bor-
rowers often either sell their
home or are forced to refinance.
There are many other mort-
gage variations out there. The


main thing is to find a lender
you can trust, either at a bank,
credit union, Internet lender,
mortgage broker or through
your home builder or real estate
agency. Bankrate.com features
a handy guide Mortgage Basics,
including a chapter on choosing
the right type of lender

scott.dressel@newssun.com
AVON PARK Saturday morn-
ing's semifinals couldn't have gone
any better for the Highlands Count
wrestlers still alive for championships
in the Region 2-1A meet at South
Florida Community College.
Five local wrestlers James Bland,
Kemosi Hatten and Josue Ortiz of
Avon Park and Shannan Spiegel and
Tim Mikula from Sebring took the
mat, and all five walked off winners to
lock up spots in their weight class
finals and, most importantly, guarantee
a berth in the state finals in Lakeland.
The afternoon wrestlebacks, howev-
er, weren't nearly so kind to the local
contingent. Only one of the six
wrestlers who survived Friday's first
day of competition was able to make it
out of Saturday's first consolation
matches. That was Ronnie Sliwicki of
Sebring, who went on to beat Ben
Sasso of Cocoa Beach 6-1 to earn a
spot in the third-place match and also

Win raises

bar higher


for Streaks
The Sebring Lady Streaks
enjoyed,.puhirig the bar up
just a bit higher last
Thursday. The undefeated
Streaks won their first game
in the Class 4A state playoffs
by a 43-38 margin over
Lakeland Kathleen.
I began covering Coach
Bob Sampson's Lady Streaks
in the early 1990s. His teams
were marked by man-to-man
defense, trapping and good
shooting.
When I would write a pre-
view story, I would ask the
coach about his team goals
for the year. He would grin
and say, "It is the same as
last year. Our goal is to win
a district title."
For quite a few years,
there was always someone in
the way. Sheila James and
Palmetto were one of the
challenges.
For the past two years,
Sebring has cruised their dis-
trict with undefeated regular
seasons. A year ago, the
- cruise hit an iceberg.
Lakeland Kathleen came into
the Sebring gym and handed
the Streaks the first loss of
the year in the first game of
the state tournament.
Last Thursday night, the
Lady Streaks looked ready to
roll over Lakeland Kathleen
with a comfortable 39-28
lead heading into the fourth
quarter. Suddenly, the visit-

Auto Racing

Audis reportedly turn fast times during private test for 12 Hours


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING While the Audi R10s and
Corvette C6.Rs were conspicuous by their
absence at the official American Le Mans
Series Winter Test at Sebring last month, they
won't be going without their track time before
this year's Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring.
Competitors from AudiSport North America
and Team Corvette were out at Sebring
International Raceway last week taking laps
and getting their cars dialed in. There were no
specific times released, but unofficial reports
put the Audi LPMs running the circuit in the
1:44 range. That would best the 1:46.983
turned in last month by Andy Wallace in the
Dyson Porsche LMP2 RS Spyder.
The former Sebring champion registered the
official fast time during the two-day ALMS


winter test.
Wallace was only just slightly faster than
the time of the new Lowe's Fernandez Racing
Acura/Lola B05140 by a couple hundredths of
a second.
The Acura had run the 17-turn track at
1:47.006 a .23 second difference. Many
believe that to be the seed of what might
become a real battle in the LMP2 division
between Porsche and Acura.
The difference on the speedometer showed
Dyson at an average 124.506 miles per hour,
Fernandez at 124.479 mph with the Penske
Porsches at 124.293 mph.
Porsche has the longest winning streak of
any marque at Sebring, however one has to
reach back into the GTP days at IMSA to

STATE
Continued from ID
it was 215-pounder Ortiz (30-
3) who had the easiest time,
pinning Hernando's Taylor
Rotunda in just 58 seconds.
The quick fall put Ortiz's total
mat time for his three matches
at 1 minute, 50 seconds or
less than one full period -
after pins in 25 and 27 sec-
onds in the first two rounds.
"I expected this one to go
much longer," Ortiz said.
"That kid was really tough,
especially when I had him
down there; he fought really
hard. He's strong and coming
in here, they said he would be
my biggest challenge before
the finals.
"It feels great," Ortiz said
of his first trip to state. "This
year, if I didn't go to state I
would have been real disap-
pointed in myself. This is
what I trained for all summer.
Once you go to state, every-
body has a shot. It's 0-0 again
and everybody has a shot to
win."
Fellow Red Devil Hatten
(31-8) also had a fairly easy
match in his 171-pound semi-
final, dominating James
Aponte of Harmony in a 13-1
major decision.
The other three in the semi-
finals, however, had their
work cut out for them.
Spiegel seemed to be in
control of his 145-pound
semifinal against Jessie
Richardson of Dunellon, lead-
ing 6-2, when Richardson
made a good move and cra-
dled Spiegel, nearly getting a
pin.


News-Sun photo by Scott Dressel
Kemosi Hatten of Avon Park (top) takes down Harmony's James
Aponte during the 171-pound semifinal Saturday morning.


Spiel quickly reversed the
momentum, however, and
ended up getting the pin with
15 seconds left in the match to
earn a return trip to state.
"I was a little scared, but it
wasn't that bad," Spiegel said.
"It wasn't a really tight cra-
dle, so I wasn't really, really
worried. I knew I could get
out of it. He ran the cradle
really good. He ended up
catching me and putting on
my back."
Bland (31-2) also had his
hands full in the 160-pound


semifinal, taking an early
one-point lead and maintain-
ing that advantage until late in
the third period, when he had
to. hold off a takedown
attempt by Brandyn Kuhn of
Hernando in the final seconds
to preserve a 5-4 win.
"I knew he was going to do
something," Bland said of
Kuhn's desperation shot at the
end of the match. "Anybody
in that position is going to do
something; try something
crazy right off the bat to try
and win.


"He was ranked No. 1, so I
had to do something. The guy
was good, that's why I had to
stay awake the whole time."
This will be the second
straight trip to state for Bland,
who was Avon Park's lone
qualifier after last season, the
Devil program's, first.
"It feels great," he said. "It
always feels great when you
accomplish something."
Sebring 215-pounder Tim
Mikula wasn't feeling great
after his match, despite get-
ting the win and a shot at
improving on last year's sec-
ond-place finish at state.
Mikula, while happy to
advance, was far from pleased
at his performance in a 3-2
decision over William
Bentley from Hudson. Mikula
trailed 2-1 with 19 seconds
left in the match before a
penalty on Hudson for stalling
tied the match, and then
Mikula got an escape for the
winning point in the final sec-
onds.
"I wrestled the way I hoped
I wouldn't," Mikula said. "I
do that a lot in my semifinals
and in my first match of the
day, and this was the semifi-
nals and the first match of the
day, so it didn't go well. I
wrestled like crap, but I guess
as long as you win, it doesn't
matter how you wrestle, but
that match should have never
been close.
"I'm very happy I'm going
back to state. I've been
expecting it the whole season.
Anything but first from here
on out is just not adequate.
First is the only good place I
can take."


SENIOR
Continued from 1D
Softball League game at
Lincoln Heights. But the
game was were tied after the
fourth inning and then it was
Royal Palms' turn for a big
inning, scoring five runs in
the fifth. Luby's failed to
catch up and Royal Palms
walked away with a 13-8 win.
For Luby's, Don Day came
up with three hits and four
others had two hits each.
Royal Palms' Brian Pluta had
a triple, two singles and two
RBIs. Jim Longman hit a dou-
ble, two singles and had two
RBIs.
Miller's Central Air versus
Discount Aluminum at
DeSoto City on Thursday was
an altogether different story
as Aluminum took a clobber-
ing, suffering a 28-6 loss.
Miller's seemed to have it all
together, blasting the ball
everywhere they intended and
had six players with two hits
each.
Their exceptional hitters of
the day with five hits
each were Howard Carney,
Tom Walsh and Dave
Holloway. Following close
with four hits each were
Bruce Griffin, Bob Fee, Glenn
Wearsh and Rod Palmer, who
also homered.
Discount Aluminum did
praise Millers team for their
day's accomplishments, even
if it hurt.
The only close scoring
game on Tuesday was at
Lincoln Heights as Luby's
pushed over Discount
Aluminum by one run, 7-6.
Aluminum was leading head-
ing into the eighth inning
until Luby's Don Day lashed
out a game-winning double.
Mike Ellis mustered up a 3-


for-3 day for Aluminum's
offense.
At DeSoto City, Miller's
bruised Silent Salesman with
a 17-12 win. The Salesman
scored five runs in the first
inning and kept a tight score
through six innings. Millers
got their second wind in the
seventh inning and attributed
their win to heavy hitting by
Don Teague, Rod Palmer and
Don Walsh, who each had
four hits. The bases were
loaded in the bottom of the
eighth when the Salesman's
power collapsed.
Salesman's Harley Smith
continued his hot batting by
going 4-for-4, reaching home
plate three times. Sydney
Collins and Jerry Johnston
had three hits each and Leo
Lypps hit a double and was
responsible for three RBI.
Royal Palms and the Rebels
went head on at Lake Placid
with a 10-4 final score.


The Rebels defended them-
selves exceptionally well
even with a shortage of play-
ers due to physical disabili-
ties. Their defense hung in
better than expected. Fred
Boyd was 4-for-4 with
Elwood Black and Diz Jones
adding three hits each.
Royal Palms' Charlie
Quinn had a double and triple,
while Jim Longman doubled.
Brian Pluta, Jim Quartier and
Don Thomas each hit three
singles.
There are still some open-
ings for outfielders. Games
are each Tuesday and
Thursday at 10 a.m. through
March 22. For information
call 382-9513. All players
would be quite welcome, and

Lake Placid league
LAKE PLACID Victor
Rodriquez, who hit the game-
winner in extra innings on


Monday, once again led Lake
Placid Marine to a win
Wednesday, beating Central
Security 20-15 at the Lake
June ball fields on
Wednesday.
Rodriquez's four hits were
one more. than teammates
Fred Moore and Howard
Carney contributed to the
high scoring game. Central
Security also had consider-
able offense with four players
- Duke Hensley, Tom Walsh,
Doug Purdy and manager
Ralph Rhoten having three
hits each, but once again fell
short of the win.
The other game on
Wednesday saw Advanced
Mobile Systems hold the
high-powered Seminole Tire
team in check through four
innings to lead 9-3.
But Seminole Tire's bats
came alive during the last
three innings, scoring 16 runs
to post a 19-10 win.


Seminole's hitting was led
by Cal Bready, Todd Martin
and Roger Lynch with three
hits each. Charlie Quinn, Rod
Palmer, Manager Gary
Steeves and Don Teague each
had three hits for AMS in the

Lake Placid Marine is now

HISTORY LESSON


YEARS AGO
Feb. 12, 2002: The Lake Placid boys basketball team advanced to the District 11-3A semifinals with
a 62-48 win over Hardee County. Shome Neverson and Lamonte Hill came off the bench in the second
and fourth quarters to spark runs that helped the Dragons stretch their lead and set up a meeting with
DeSoto.
25 YEARSl AGO .
Feb. 11, 1982: For the second time in the season, the Sebring girls basketball team lost a close one
to a strong Lemon Bay team. Having lost 42-41 in the previous contest, the Lady Streaks found them-
selves down 42-27 going into the final quarter. Andrea Holdman scored nine of her game-high 25 points,
however, and Pam Sanders added six to lead a 21-8 comeback before falling short, 50-48.

PANTHERS
Continued from 1D
Viking center fielder made a
diving catch. While the
umpire in the field made the
out call on the catch, Padgett
was tagging up and headed
for home.
Padgett was safe at the
plate, but St. Johns appealed
as to whether Padgett had left
third early.
The umpire who made the
out call on the catch held up
the out sign on the appeal and
the inning was over or was
it?
After some discussion with
Hitt, the home plate umpire
reversed the call, giving the
Panthers Padgett's run,
Huguley an RBI and the St.
Johns head coach, Mike
Robins, an argument that
would eventually lead to his
ejection.
A hit batter led to a Viking
pitcher's ejection, and an
unnecessary hook slide at
home plate booted another St.
Johns player later.
Meanwhile, after a Viking
run tied it, Dale Slimick dou-
bled and scored on consecu-
tive sacrifice flies by Brien
Coppola and Wright in the
sixth.
Then in the seventh,
Stanley hit his second solo
shot of the game, Nick
Polston walked and Steven
Levine doubled down the left-
field line.
Polston scored on a wild
pitch and then Levine came
plateward on a Padgett sacri-
fice fly for a 7-3 Panther lead.
In the eighth, the Vikings
brought in a knuckleball

Only slightly off the pace
was defending Sebring champ
Intersport with the AER-pow-
ered Lola at 1:48.481.
However, as pointed out by
hall-of-famer Bobby Rahal,
the Mobil 1 12 Hours of
Sebring is a race that is won
more on reliability than out-
right speed.
The other class taking
advantage of the ALMS spon-
sored preseason test were
competitors in the GT2 divi-
sion. Last year's 12 Hours
showed fierce competition
between the Panoz, Ferrari
and Porsche and this year
looks to be no exception.
Newcomer Tafel Racing
topped the charts at the
Winter Test with a 2:01.678 in
their brand new Porsche 911
RSR. They, too, only got their
cars at the first of the month
and also were not yet in their
race livery.
It was German Wolf
Hensler who clicked off the
fast lap there, remarking he
was only trying to help dial in
the racer.
"With a new car you really
are only trying to get quality
laps and make small adjust-
ments," he said.
Again, it was just a couple
hundredths of a second
between the top two lap
times. Despite their testing
being held up a day, the veter-
an Risi Ferrari team was just
.226 behind the Tafel top
time.
Meanwhile, at the test this

those soft, erratic pitches led
to Coppola getting hit by a
pitch for the second time in
the game.
Wright followed with a
double and Pat Tufano

ing times.
At least at this time it
appears the Corvettes will
have the GT1 division all to
themselves. There are no
other teams registered for
Sebring at this time, but that
doesn't worry ALMS
President and CEO Scott
Atherton, who held a press
conference at the January test
and noted that at the same
time last year, organizers did-
n't have an entry from Aston
Martin, who later came to
Sebring to take the GT1 divi-
sion win.
There's also a report that
the planned test for the


Gooch found himself in the
path of another knuckler that
got away, which resulted in
another ejection, leaving St.
Johns out of pitchers and the
game at an odd though
positive for the home team -
end as the Panthers stopped a
six-game losing streak.
"We've been reeling lately,


Peugeot 908 at Sebring has
been canceled. The French
diesel-powered racer was slat-
ed to run during the days fol-
lowing the Sebring 12 Hours.
The private test could have
given the Peugeot team a
comparison of lap times
between the new 908 and the
Audi R10s using the 3.72-
mile circuit as their basis.of
performance.
However, Peugeot officials
now say they would have
"lost too much time" by com-
ing to Sebring for a test.
Instead, the Peugeot 908s will
run, in public, at the Paul
Ricard test days on March 25-
26.
More testing at the Sebring

and this was an important
game for us to get our confi-
dence back," Hitt said.
"Our pitchers were filling
up the strike zone tonight and
we had a lot of smart,
unselfish at bats.
"It got a little wild, but the
guys really kept their compo-
sure and played the game."


International Raceway is
planned prior to the 12 Hours.
Officials of Lowe's
Fernandez Racing indicated
they planned a session later
this month to help get the cars
and their drivers ready for the
American Le Mans Series
season opener, which not only
is the toughest on the circuit
but one of the'most difficult
in the world.


BEDELL
Continued from ID
ing Red Devils shifted to a
half-court trap that stymied
the Lady Streaks.
A five-minute scoring
drought for Sebring helped
Kathleen cut the lead to 39-
35. Suddenly, the Lady
Streaks looked tense and the
fans looked just as tense. A
pair of jump shots by Nikela
Sullivan gave Sebring some
breathing room and they
went on to win.
A win in the state tourna-
ment is certainly a significant
accomplishment for the
Sebring girls basketball pro-
gram. It is a mark these girls
and their coach were confi-
dent that they could achieve.

from the Bulls.
Caracter, who had played
in just eight games this season
due to a variety of off-the-
court problems before
Saturday, finally showcased
some of the potential
Louisville coach Rick Pitino
has been talking about since
Caracter arrived on campus
last summer.
The Cardinals have strug-
gled shooting the ball all sea-
son, but regained their touch
against the Bulls, shooting51
percent from the field.


It shows how far these ath-
letes and their coach have
moved this program along.
The Lady Streaks did it the
traditional way. They con-
trolled the boards with the
rebounding of Brittany
Bullock and Hannah Shoop.
They played good defense
and put good pressure on the
basketball. They also made
good passes to help their
team get some easy baskets.
With the win, Sebring will
host the 21-8 Dunbar team
from Fort Myers in the
Region 2 semifinals on
Tuesday at 7 p.m. Let's hope
Sebring students and fans
raise the bar and fill the gym
for their Lady Streaks.

spondent.
