S. Sun N Lake general



manager scrutinized


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING The City of Indian
Rocks Beach vowed to use "all
avenues available" to recoup $15,000
allegedly owed by Sun 'N Lakes'
new general manager.
Al Grieshaber Jr. has been with
Sun 'N Lake since Jan. 11. He was
interim city manager of Indian Rocks
Beach from July 2005 to February
2006, when he became their perma-
nent manager.
In a letter dated Feb. 6'
7, Indian Rocks sise
Beach's eS e \e
attorney e 'I
Andrew J. C% i se
Salzman said 5eV ,-e% \
Grieshaber o' -
failed to justify %A. C__ -
his moving Cc . Au
expenses from *1 eQ l
Sanford, where he dte1ev ed-O
served as city man- o .--
ager almost two years ii -- '
before the council 0" ev
decided to not renew %ev, V -
his contract. I
"Please be advised thai - ''
the city is requesting tha ..
you repay in full
$13,124.28 for moving
expenses based on the fact that you
did not meet the criteria as contained
in your contract," Salzman wrote in
the letter to Grieshaber. "Further, it
has been determined that you have
Sover-used your compensation time in
the amount of 60.73 hours ... time for
which you were not entitled to."
Salzman said Grieshaber was paid
$2,525.76 in compensatory time, and
owes that plus the moving expenses
back to the city.
Contacted Thursday, Grieshaber
said he fulfilled his contract with
Indian Rocks Beach and, with elec-
tions there in March, he suggested
that politics are at play.
According to his contract,
Grieshaber was required to submit
three quotes for relocation expenses

Rescuers give cat oxygen after fire


By KEVIN J. SHUTTT
SEBRING Firefighters still save cats.
There %%ere no human injuries reported when an electri-
cal short sparked a fire Tuesday at 6600 Old Plantation
Ave., DeSoto City Volunteer Fire Department Capt. Joe
Debree said.
However, renter Robert Hill and a roominiate lost ['o
cats to the fire, two weren't located and another was res-
cued and received oxygen in the back of a Highlands
County ambulance.
Two ferrets haven't been located.
"Everything went very well," Debree said, explaining
that the first units arrived 10 minutes, after the fire was
called in at 10:18 p.m. "Even the homeowner was
impressed."


He said the roommate was in the s hhoewlr .'.l hn ith
smoke alarm went off..
He stepped out and saw a curtain and wall on fire,
Debree said, explaining the short was caused by a free-
standing lamp.
Hill and girlfriend Loretta Treat were sleeping when the
fire began and woke to a smoke-filled house.
Lorida Volunteer Fire Department assisted DeSoto
VFD. They had the fire under control by 10:28 p.m.
"They usually go up pretty quick," Debree said of the
double-wide mobile home, in which the fire was contained
to the bedroom and part of the hallway.
However, smoke and head damage were extensive
throughout the home. Debree didn't have an estimated
value of the damage.


that included packing, storage, insur-
ance and unpacking, the lowest of
which Indian Rocks Beach would
pay directly to the moving company.
In March 2006 when Grieshaber's
home sold, the $13,000 check was
cut to a moving company, but when
the house deal fell through the city
initiated an immediate stop payment.
The house sold again in August
and with the Salzman's
blessing, the $13,000

"When I found these documents
insufficient, I requested a meeting on
Dec. 10, 2006," Indian Rocks Beach
finance director Marty Schless said in
a Dec. 29 letter.
At the special meeting, Grieshaber
provided an affidavit accounting for
the moving costs beyond the $1,200.
In the affidavit, Grieshaber cited a
$190 ongoing monthly storage charge
to an unnamed facility and about 10
payments to individuals or entities
identified by initials only.
For example, he stated,
"Approximately $11,500 paid to A.S.

Trustee will take over in Joran Realt bankruptcy case


Examiner said Joran
Realty is a 'ship
without a captain'
By MATT MURPHY
S matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING A court-appointed
'examiner had some harsh words for
Joran Realty and .its principal owner
Mark Shenker in his initial report. And


in part because of his findings, U.S.
Bankruptcy Court Judge Laurel Isicoff
has ordered the .appointment of a
Chapter 11 Trustee to take over in the
case.
The trustee, who has not yet been
named, will in effect take the Harder
Hall proper \ out of the hands of Joran
and Kenwhite, LLC, the investment
group that entered into an agreement
with Joran to arrange financing for the
historic hotel. The Trustee will be an


independent third-party not associated
with the case.
City of Sebring attorney Michael
Swaine said the decision to appoint the
trustee came as little surprise.
"Once you read the examiner's
report," Swaine said, "you probably
thought that's the way the judge would
go."
Examiner Soneet Kapila, who sub-
mitted his report of findings Feb. 9,
recommended that the case be convert-


ed from Chapter 11 to a Chapter 7, or
liquidation, bankruptcy. He also rec-
ommended the appointment of a
trustee to "facilitate a proper market-
ing" to potential investors of the hotel.
Kapila reached his conclusions by
investigating the assets and liabilities
of Joran and Shenker, interviewing the
principals involved in the case, and
issuing subpoenas on Joran's bank
records, Shenker's financial transac-
tions, and other relevant materials. He


made several findings about the com-
pany which criticized the company's
organization, record-keeping, and
money management.
Some of Kapila's findings:
Joran "does not possess a 'captain
of the ship,'" who can "maximize a
return for the benefit of creditors."
Joran's Statements of Financial
Affairs "were obviously not prepared

New Coke bottle released for race


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING It was just five years ago Coca
Cola issued a commemorative 50th bottle for the
golden anniversary of America's oldest sports car
endurance race.
Now it is going to do it again.
The new bottles and their decorated carriers
should be at the raceway gift shop and a number
of area stores by the end of the week. Company
officials are hoping it will be half as successful as
the 2002 edition which is now selling on eBay
and other Internet auction sites for between $5
and $10 each more if the bottles come with the
commemorative carrier showing the Panoz Le
Mans Prototype..
That bright red LeMans Prototype show
car has become a symbol of the raceway through
static displays and appearances in holiday
parades throughout the state.
For the 55th year commemorative design, the
black and white checkered border and stylized
writing has been replaced by a red, white and
blue oval with a stylized 55 and the chicane-style
"S," which is also a Sebring trademark.
Additionally, instead of the Panoz LMP on the
bottle carrier, this year's edition displays the sil-
ver, winning Audi NorthAmerica LMP1 coming
under the walk-over bridge at the start of the front
stretch.
The 2007 limited edition issue has been a
restricted run, with only 8,000 cases made. That's
600 fewer than the 50th anniversary bottle, which
was almost immediately a collector's item.
At the time, Ted Kudlinski, then-center man-
ager for Highlands Coca Cola, reported he'd had
people calling him from as far away as Texas


wanting to drive over and get cases and take them
out West. The bottles and their cardboard carriers
flew off the shelves.
He reported to one of the 50th anniversary
committee's final meetings that he had received
an interesting response from the home office in
Marietta, Ga., when he'd gone in search of the
balance of his Sebring shipment.
"They asked me, 'How in the heck can you sell
7,000 bottles down there in Sebring when we're
backed up with NASCAR bottles?' Kudlinski
said.
The original agreement was two years in the
making and was particularly difficult as Coca
Cola is very protective of their trademark logo
and seldom allows it to be altered in any way.
It was the only such commemorative issuance
in the state of Florida in 2002.
There also were special vending covers made
for the 50th anniversary. They featured the sim-
ple outline of a Coke bottle filled in with a black
and white checkered flag pattern. Coke reprised
the design on a number of different items includ-
ing banners, T-shirts and cups.
This year's bottle also will be supported by
special vending machine covers. These will be a
bit more elaborate, showing the same action pho-
tograph of the Audi LMP1, which appears on the
bottle carrier.
Coca Cola has a long history with the 12 Hours
of Sebring and a number of the road race teams
that have appeared at the endurance classic. The
soft drink giant served as the name sponsor for a
number of the races including the 30th edition of
the sports classic and was the sponsor of Bob
Akin's 1986 race winning Porsche among others.

officials say a new vending machine featuring the defending champi-

tion of Morse Code as a

Peter Pan flies off shelves


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Grocery stores across Highlands
County were inundated with returns of Peter Pan
brand peanut butter Thursday following an
announcement of a voluntary recall by ConAgra
Foods.
The recall of the Peter Pan and Great Value
brands, bearing the "2111" product code was
made .as a precautionary measure following a
report that they might be linked to cases of sal-
monella, according to press released.
Officials from Albertsons, Publix, Sweetbay
and Winn-Dixie stores confirmed they all had
received shipments with the product code in
question.
One local supermarket had the brand on a two-
for-one sale last week, while the manager from
another chain who declined to be identified -
said the 2111 designation involved "a lot of prod-
uct."
Each chain pledged to take the jars purchased
at their stores and refund the purchase price.
The two brands (Great Value is Wal-Mart's in-
house label) were removed from shelves across
the county.


The Food and Drug Administration reported
the problem with the food-borne illness was
traced to a ConAgra plant in Sylvester, Ga.
It's the first known salmonella incident involv-
ing peanut butter in the United States. As of
Thursday, officials weren't certain how the sal-
monella tainted the product.
"We're working with the FDA to better under-
stand their concerns. We'll take whatever meas-
ures are needed to ensure the safety, quality and
wholesomeness of our product," ConAgra Vice
President of Corporate Affairs Chris Kircher said.
FDA officials said the outbreak began in
August and has registered a reported 288 cases in
39 states. About 20-percent of the people had to
be hospitalized. No fatalities have been reported.
Highlands County Health Department spokes-
woman Kay Mollenkompf said Thursday that
there had been no salmonella cases reported
locally. Florida was not on a list of states report-
ing such cases.
Spokesmen for the Centers for Disease Control
said Salmonella sickens approximately 40,000
and kills about 600 people in the U.S. annually.
Symptoms can include diarrhea, fever, dehydra-
tion, abdominal pain and vomiting.


ning at 7 p.m.
The Highlands County
Amateur Radio Club is made up
of ham operators from across
the county and surrounding
area. In addition to maintaining
three VHF and UHF
"repeaters" providing commu-
nications for hams in this part
of the state, the club provides
communications support during
public emergencies including
hurricane shelters when con-
ventional means are less reli-
able, and public-service events
throughout the year like bike
races and communications for
local Christmas parades.


The Highlands County
Amateur Radio Club is also the
"parent" organization for vol-
unteer groups such as the
Amateur Radio Emergency
Service in Highlands County
and supports the Volunteer
Examiner group authorized by
the FCC to administer exams
locally for all classes of both
commercial and amateur radio
operator licenses. The annual
Hamfest is the one major fund-
raiser held by the club each
year.
The Agri-Civic Center is at

Precautionary
boil water notice
in effect
AVON PARK A water
main break in the Orangewood
Acres area has resulted in a pre-
cautionary boil water notice for
residents there.
As a precaution, it is advised
that all water used for drinking,
cooking, making ice, brushing
teeth, or washing dishes be
boiled.
Disinfect water as follows:
1. A rolling boil for one
minute is sufficient.
2. As an alternative bottled
water may be used.
Chemical disinfection of
drinking water during power
outages where there is a loss
of power and the boiling of
water may not be possible, res-
idents and businesses should
disinfect their drinking water as
follows:
1. Tap water can be disinfec-
ted by adding eight drops of
-unscented household bleach (4
Sto 6 percent active ingredients)
to each gallon of water, then
mixing the water and allowing
it to stand for a minimum of 30
minutes. Cloudy water requires
16 drops of bleach and a 30-
minute contact time. Also,
other approved chemical disin-
fectants are available at stores
that sell camping and hiking
supplies.
The "Precautionary Boil
Water Notice" will remain in
effect until the problem has
been corrected and bacteriolog-
ical survey shows that water is
safe to drink.

FOOT project on Main Street delayed


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopherttuffley@newssun.com ,
AVON PARK According to Cindy
Clemmons-Adente, spokesperson for the
Florida Department of Transportation, the
state's resurfacing project for State Road
17 from west of Delaney Avenue to
U.S. 27 originally scheduled to begin
Friday, Feb. 23, has been postponed until
at least mid-March. No starting date has
yet been set.
The cause of the delay is a material


shortage of Class 4 drilled shaft concrete,
needed to stabilize the new light fixture
mast arms that are being installed as part
of the project. The concrete, which will be
poured inside the mast arms, has to meet
higher than average standards due to hur-
ricane dangers, and only certified produc-
ers may provide it.
"We can't start without that piece in
place," Clemmons-Adente said.
She added that the installation of the
mast arms is the most time-consuming


part of the plan, and will take the entire 90
days allotted for its execution. It would
only cause greater delays, she said, to
begin construction, and then have to stop
and wait on the concrete.
When construction begins, alternative
parking will be provided by the city
behind The Depot restaurant and at
Donaldson Park.
Access to surrounding neighborhoods
in the construction area will be open to
local traffic only.

Saturday with an excitement
filled day.
The dealership is at 1501
Longleaf Blvd. south of Lake

and Buell motorcycles as well
as MotorClothes, Harley and
Buell themed gifts and col-
lectibles. The parts, accessories,

Dyno Room are located in the
36,000-square foot building.
Saturday's grand opening
will feature shows by
Motorcycle stuntman, Bubba

human drama of the stunt jump-

Evel Knievel.
Live on Jay Leno's "Tonight

viewers, Bubba flew his Harley
over 14 semi trucks, creating a
name for himself in the record

Also on hand to entertain will
be Bobby Friss. He is known as
Harley-Davidson's favorite
classic rock band. Friss and his
band will present two shows

Here's a


chance to


sing and


dance
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
chrisiopher.nff(1le,@hni'ssun.com -
AVON PARK If anyone
is in the eighth grade or high
school, and they enjoy acting,
singing or dancing, and they
have a hankering to have fun
on a stage, then come out from
9 a.m. to noon Saturday and
audition for the cast of Avon
Park's own version of a "High
School Musical," as inspired by
the Disney Family Channel
production.
Casey Laughlin, a sopho-
more at Avon Park High
School, is directing the show,
with the help of Union
Congregational Church music
director Jim Lanier.
They want people to know
the auditions and production
are being held at the church,
but everyone is welcome.
Laughlin is starting work
early, to be sure all the per-
formers will be comfortable by
show time.
He expects to have one or
two rehearsals every week, and
the presentation won't be until
sometime in the middle of
August, the exact date isn't
final yet.
The musical will need 40
performers, of whom only eight
have been cast so far. Most
roles are background parts, and
involve singing and dancing
without any lines. There are
one or two speaking roles for
adults as well, Lanier said.
Simply show up to audition
and have a song ready. Sing a
cappella, or have your own
music. Dancers are especially
needed.
The Union Congregational
Church is at 139 N. Butler St.
Call Laughlin at 453-4863 for
more information.

Bird club meets
Bird owners are invited to
the next meeting of the
Heartland Avian Society at 2
p.m. Saturday at 720 N.
Ridgewood Drive.
Park across the street in the
large parking lot. Bring a lawn
chair to sit on and a snack to
share. Bring birds to show oth-


ers. Nominations will be taken
for new club officers.
The Heartland Avian Society
is a non-profit organization
whose goal is to promote and
improve an appreciation and
knowledge of birds, their biolo-
gy, and care. For information
call 385-3367.


The single "You Can't Come
Back" was No. 59 of all songs
played in 1988 at WYNF in
Tampa and later charted in the
top 10 AOR MPL3's.
Friss began his long associa-
tion with the Tampa Children's
Home around this time and by
hosting annual concerts, helped
raise more than $50,000 for the
charity. Miller Brewing
Company began sponsoring


"Tap Into the Cold" and "As
Real as it Gets" campaigns. His
second CD "Fate" was released
to rave reviews earning Friss
the Florida Jammy Award for
best album and best rock vocal-
ist. The song "Welcome Home"
was filmed for video use and
received airplay throughout the
southeastern United States.
From the early days on the
road, Friss had a strong follow-


annual performances in
Daytona Beach for Bike Week
and Biketoberfest and many
Wisconsin shows including the
Milwaukee Rally and Harley-
Davidson's 100th Celebration.
Friss' "Live CD" was record-
ed at Bike Week and really cap-
tured the energy of the band on-
stage.
The band is the real deal
behind Friss' stage antics and


the BFB. Riggs solo album and
songs on films Night Shift and
Heavy Metal led him to a 10-
year stint with Pat Travers,
before joining Friss. Longtime
drummer Larry Myers has
picked up several Jammy
Awards for best drummer and
bassist, Dean Mickey, has been
Friss' musical director for over
a decade.
With more than 120 shows a


West.
The grand opening celebra-
tion will also feature Granger
and Son's famous barbecue,
drinks and "spin to win" prizes.
A special treat that bikers will
have is the opportunity to drive
through a special tent and have
their picture taken with one of
several 2007 Calender Dolls -
at no charge. This is courtesy of

E-911 equipment not ready for consolidation


Benton: 'We can't just sit
on the fence'
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Law enforcement officers satu-
rated Highlands County in January in the hours
that followed the shooting death of Florida
Highway Patrol Sgt. Nicholas Sottile.
Those same officers, from across the region,
saturated the Highlands County E-911 communi-
cations suite to a near critical point.
"There wasn't a breath between calls," central
dispatch administrator Bonnie Gregg said
Thursday. "It got so busy with radio transmission
after radio transmission and the phone calls. The
incident command people had trouble getting in
and we had trouble getting out."
Sheriff Susan Benton approached the
Highlands County commissioners Tuesday
requesting $670,000 to upgrade the MCC-5500
dispatch consoles to physically smaller units with
greater software capabilities.
With a consolidation imminent with the
Emergency Operations Center, Gregg said she
needs consoles capable of carrying 22 channels.
The current equipment, in its ninth year of a
10-year life span, has 21 channels not enough


for the consolidation and barely enough to handle
a multi-agency situation the likes which county
officials hope to not experience again.
Gregg said the smaller size of the consoles
could affect the planning phase under way for a
new facility for the sheriff.
"We don't need all these great big old servers
which require more servicing," she said, noting
that training will be streamlined and overall less
expensive in bring on new operators.
The need is now, Gregg. said, not when some
not-yet-approved facility is built in the future.
Benton recently let go of about $1.2 million
originally earmarked for expanding/reorganizing
her current offices which a study said is inade-
quate.
Benton asked that the money be put toward the
new building.
"It's gotten to the point where it's an urgent sit-
uation," she said Tuesday. "We've got to do
something. We can't just sit on the fence."
Commissioner Edgar Stokes questioned why,
months after the budgeting process, this became
an urgent matter.
Gregg, on Thursday, explained that through the
course of planning for the consolidation, the sher-
iff's office learned that their equipment was anti-
quated.

Communications administrator Bonnie Gregg demonstrates software used by her operators in the
Highlands County Sheriff's Office's central dispatch. Various upgrades have been ongoing to facilitate
consolidations, but the sheriff said she needs $600,000 for at least one remaining 'urgent' upgrade.

The proposed 50 percent

Grieshaber refused to have
the letter read to him via tele-

view and said he'd make no
comment until he saw the orig-

Editorial & Opinion


News-Sun
Serving Highlands County since 1927
MOSBY L. WIGGINTON JR. ROMONA WASHINGTON
Publisher Executive Editor

Night/Weekend Editor


SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor


In right direction

Business professionals have gathered in the past for
visioningg" sessions. They have had separate sessions
in Avon Park, Lake Placid and Sebring, and have had
a meeting for the county as a whole.
These sessions were planned to look at the cities',
and the county's, strengths. They were done to deter-
mine what tourists might be attracted to if they were
visiting Highlands County.
Some good came out of those meetings. To some,
though, it was nothing but a waste of a lot of time.
County commissioners have just wrapped up their
own visioningg" session, but this time called it a goal
setting workshop. They have established three long-
range goals. Now it's up to the county administrator to
establish a road map to get there.
As in other visioningg" sessions, the commissioners
and county staff were asked to identify their strengths,
weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
The first goal they agreed upon is to develop an
organizational structure and budget process that
W emphasizes high-value services.
The second goal is to provide strong communica-
tions and information to staff, the board, citizens and
other elected officials.
* Their final goal is to develop a strategic growth plan
that protects natural resources and preserves quality of
life while maximizing use of public infrastructure and
ensuring efficient use of public funds.
Commissioner Guy Maxcy wants to cap county
spending in a move similar to Hillsborough County,
educate the commissioners on their roles and respon-
sibilities and delivery county services efficiently.
Commissioner Andrew Jackson said privatization is
one of his goals, as well as streamlining the organiza-
tional chart and budget process, providing clear direc-
tion to staff and researching more options to make
decisions, and to evaluate the pros and cons of those
alternatives.
Commissioner Barbara Stewart wants to examine
what services the county should or should not provide,
determine the future "look" of the county, educate the
board and staff about growth issues and hand over to
-- the "next generation" a financially sound county.
Commissioner Edgar Stokes said the millage rate
should be scrutinized and the growth policy reviewed.
Commissioner Don Bates wants more citizen input,
a consensus on growth between the county and munic-
ipalities and protection of natural resources.
County Administrator Carl Cool now knows the
commissioners' wishes for a better government.
As pointed out in the meeting, the goals are step one
of three. They are a beginning, not the end, of an on-
going process.
The next step is for Cool to buy into the process and
sell it to his subordinates, who will help him identify
quantifiable "action steps" to bring the goals to
fruition.
The workshop moderator described it as the com-
missioners' opportunity to judge Cool's performance
as a county administrator. The final step, he pointed
out, will be to hold Cool accountable to the goals.
Cool confirmed that he believes in the process, and
said he expects his staff will also. If so, it's a major
step in the right direction.

Little kitten finds a loving home in the country


Fred and I were discussing
bills, kids, the meaning of life
and the future of the universe
... trivial stuff like that, while
standing on the front porch
preparing to tackle the com-
ing day. I was staring off into
the pasture, enjoying the first
cup of coffee and the soft
numbness that comes with
having crawled recently out
of a comfy bed.
A bull bellowed off in the
distance and it occurred to me
for about the millionth time,
how much I cherish country
living. You never know
what's going to happen; what
wild creatures might cross
your path, or what domestic
creatures will impact you in
some small, but usually mean-
ingful way.
"You see the new cat?"
Fred asked, suddenly.
"What new cat?"
"That one," he pointed. My
eyes followed his extended
index finger to the tiniest, tee-
niest, and probably the pretti-
est kitten I have ever seen. It
was sitting regally on the
front porch, barely bigger
than a fuzzy grapefruit, peer-
ing at nothing in particular
with two brilliant blue eyes
set in a lion's mane of butter-
scotch and white fluff.
"That's not a cat! That's an
itty, bitty, baby kitty!" I cor-
rected him.
I'm sure I broke all kinds of
speed records crossing the
porch to pick up the kitten,
gushing like a fool the whole
way. I have a serious kitten

fetish. I've also been known
to act like an utter idiot over
puppies, and for some reason
not clear to me yet baby
feet. I suspect that it has
something to do with the fact
that those tiny little bare
soles, aside from being pure
and unsoiled and soft as a
whisper in church, somehow
speak to me of the future and
limitless possibilities. Where
will those feet take this new
person, once they begin their
journey?
Baby feet aside, I had an
adorable kitten tucked under
my chin, who was purring like
her very life depended on it.
She was virtually weightless
--.a handful of warm cotton
balls and as I rubbed her
against my cheek I claimed
her as my own and was rapid-
ly trying to come up with a
name.
"Where did she come
from?" I asked, snuggling and
gushing shamelessly.
"I don't know Jill says
she was just sitting here on


the porch when she came
home from work."
I knew he didn't accept the
explanation. Neither did I;
we're way out in the middle
of nowhere, much too far for a
stray kitten to just stumble on
the place by chance, and fur-
thermore she was far too
healthy to have been fending
for herself for any longer than
about fifteen minutes.
"I've always wanted a
long-haired kitten like this," I
said, and Fred sighed as I con-
versed with the kitten on that
idiotic level that I sink to
when in the presence of baby
animals.
"Maybe Pete brought her
home," I suggested.
We both looked at the big,
clumsy pup and considered
the possibility. He was always
bringing something home.
The yard is littered with ran-
dom foreign matter that we
don't recognize; bits of trash
and assorted rags, even the
skull of some yet to be identi-
fied creature that was proba-
bly found on the side of the
road. Was it possible that Pete
had added a stolen kitten to
his inventory?
That thought brought the
unsettling potential that
someone, somewhere, might
be looking for the kitten. The
more likely probability was
that Jill had brought the kitten
home herself, because she's
almost as big a sucker as I am
when it comes to kittens, and
rather than admit this outright
and risk being told to take it


back where it came from, she
simply pled ignorance and
hoped for the best.
But because Fred is basi-
cally a pushover for animals
too, I knew that the kitten had
a new home. Unless of course
it had been pilfered by a
roaming mutt without a
spoonful of sense, and was
currently on the 10 Most
Wanted Kittens List.
I clutched the kitten, won-
dering, still vaguely name-
searching, somewhat devas-
tated at the idea that Pete had
committed a kitten-napping
and that said kitten was going
to be snatched away by a
relieved, and righteously
indignant, owner. The more I
thought about it, the more my
lower lip drooped, and the
more determined I became to
keep the kitten, no matter
what.
So, if there's someone out
there who's missing a tiny lit-
tle butterscotch and white
angel with blue eyes that
doesn't weigh as much as a
number two pencil, please
know that I have her, and I
love her.

Photography is

very touching
Editor:
I recently renewed my sub-
scription for the year. I was-
n't going to because I don't
always have the time to read
every paper. The reason I
changed my mind was the
amazing photos taken by
Katara Simmons. I can recog-
nize her photos before I even
look at the credit.
Take for instance the photo
on Friday, Feb. 2, of baby
Malikiah. Wow! What
sparkle! What a depiction of
the new lease on life in that
picture. Ms. Simmons cap-
tured the baby's beauty per-
fectly.
Another photo that
appealed to me was on the
front page of the New-Sun on
Feb. 4. Perfectly captured
was the camaraderie and
appreciation for our young


and able soldiers. I could
barely take my eyes from the
photo.

Even from the back of Staff
Sgt. Mark Stevens the photo
revealed his smile lines and
firm handshake. The expres-
sion on the face of Sgt.
Johnny Morales towards a
younger Alvarez is one of
respect and appreciation.

Ms. Simmons' photo
should be entered nationally!
The expression on young
soldier, Boris Alvarez, looks
like he feels 10 feet tall sur-
rounded by men of the caliber
Katara Simmons caught in
her photo.

Congratulations to Ms.
Simmons and to the News-
Sun. Great photos! I have a
hard time letting go of photos
of this quality and impact.

Obama seems

good candidate
Editor:
As I watched clips of
Barack Obama on the cam-
paign trail in New
Hampshire, I found my
thoughts drifting away to a
time in January 1959.
Three of my small children
and I were on a bus in
Richmond, Va. We were from
Sarasota, heading for
Hanover, N.H., having
stopped briefly at the bus sta-
tion.
As we pulled out of the
Richmond station, my 11-
year-old daughter, Marion,
sitting by the window of the
bus directly behind the driver,
suddenly stood up and spoke
loudly to the gentleman
behind the wheel. "Oh driver,
driver, please stop! There's a
lady trying to get on the bus!"
The bus driver growled at my


daughter. "She ain't no lady,
she's a (racial slur)." With
that, he backed the bus out
and headed north.
My daughter whispered in
my ear, "Why did he do that
to her?"
"Because of the color of
her skin."
That driver appeared to be
about 60 years old at the
time, doubtless deceased by
now.
How I wish he was alive to
witness the "distance"
between then and now!
-A word of caution: The
"highway" of racism is still
open. There's a long way to
go.
Barack Obama is a remark-
able political opponent in this
2008 race for president.
Remarkable because of his
intelligence and truthfulness.
If he doesn't get elected it
will be because he is too hon-

est and decent. It won't be
because of the color of his
skin.
If your readers have not
read Obama's "Dreams from
my Father" giving us an open
view of his background, they
are not in a position to judge
how well he understands the
human condition and sensi-
tivities of life experiences.
I earnestly suggest for your
edification and knowledge,
you treat yourselves to
Barack Obama's current book
"Audacity to Hope."
Once you read this latest
book what you learn about his
potential to lead America, any
doubts of his knowledge and
skills will be laid to rest.
Yes. We have a good line
up of wannabes. The top con-
tenders are interesting to con-
sider.
John Edwards touches
everyone's heart as we recall
his run for vice president. We
respond with love and
warmth to his beautiful fami-
ly, his laughter and smile.
Hillary? We think we know
her well. I enjoyed her book
"Living History." Two for the
price of one? Maybe.
John McCain? "Faith of
our Fathers," an excellent
book! Somewhere along the
way the Senator appears to
have become another George
W. Bush.
Rudolph Giuliani, let us
take time to look carefully at
his record. We give him cred-
it for is good work during
Sept. 11, 2001. We also give
him credit for having satis-
fied New York City as mayor.
Digging a little deeper, we
recall when Tom Ridge (a
decent man who said Bush's
game with using color codes
to plant fear in America was a
means of control) gave the
president his resignation as
head of Homeland Security.
Bush appointed one of his old
friends to head up the securi-
ty of America!
Gdwas with .
Once Bush's friendd saw'
that Congress was going to
interrogate, rather than grill


him and he might go to prison
instead of to Washington, he
refused the past and faded
into obscurity!
Who was it who came to
give this man a hug and say to
the American people on TV
how sorry he was that "my
good friend" is not going to
take the job? Those are not
the exact words of Rudy
Giuliani but they are close!
Once the campaign mud
starts flying we will hear
what we already know about
his personal life. The man
who wants to make America
part of the family!
Another thing to consider
is this: The safest way to
make sure your vote is count-
ed is by early absentee ballot.
All you have to do is get on
the phone and request the bal-
lot. Don't forget your home-
work!

Bouquets

Accordions are

appreciated
Editor:
Recently my update about
Jean Claude Meus was in the
local papers. I had mentioned
that something Jean Claude
missed was being able to play
the accordion. My phone
started ringing with offers of
accordions for this gentle
man.
There were seven offers of
accordions and an offer to
start a fund to purchase one
for Jean Claude ... amazing. I
am currently in the process of
getting two of the offered
accordions to the prison. I
wound up with two because I
could not get the first one to
open. A little cleaning of the
bellows and both work fine
now. Both will go to the
prison so that Jean Claude
can teach other inmates to
play.
My sister, Rebecca, was
down for her visit with Jean
Claude and was able to tell
him about the accordion
offers on Sunday. She told me
he started crying tears of joy'
and was very humbled about
the care and concern of this


community for him.
Thank you all so much, not
only for the offers of accor-
dions but for keeping this
man in your prayers and in
your hearts. It means a lot to
all of us that know and love
this man.

It's nice to just

'be together'
Editor:
Are you ready for some
"happy" news? On Feb. 12"
there was a "coming togeth-
er" of ladies from different
religions and different
churches. It was an evening
of being together with lots of
laughter and fun.
The tables were beautiful,
each with lovely table wear
of dishes, silver and napkins
brought by the ladies of the
Community Church of God of
Sun 'N Lakes of Lake Placid
where all of this took place.
There was a long line of
tables of buffet food with
delicious "everything to eat."
Our local clowns, Gabby
and Roadrunner, were great
with their "skits" and min-
gling with the guests. The
"fashion show" was really
"different," some beautiful
and some so funny.
At each table, the "hostess"
was the person who had fur-
nished the beautiful china,
silver and napkins. At my
table was Imogene McKinney
and we all enjoyed her com-
pany. Our "server" was Kay
Whitton and she was a
"charmer."
Marline Christenson was in
charge and deserved a lot of
praise for her hard work. This
evening was a good lesson for
all of us, that no matter where
you are from or what your
religion is, it is so refreshing
to just "be together." Sincere
thanks to the Lake Placid
Community Church of ,God
and all of the hard-iorking
members.

ATVs
Continued from 12A
or physical therapist for treat-
ment; or perhaps he/she is
jealous that there is a program
called "Meals on Wheels,"
where shut-ins will receive
food from volunteers five
times a week; or perhaps
he/she is jealous over the
attention senior citizens get
when there is a "Senior Expo"
at the Ag Center, when all
kinds of health problems are
discussed, with many of the
latest health promoting
"gadgets" are on display; or
perhaps he/she juvenile
Neanderthal is jealous of
something called "Hospice,"
where people unrelated to a
person, will stay and help that
person as they prepare to cope
with their last days upon this
Earth.
The "grown-up"
Neanderthals are equally if
not more so at fault, as it cer-
tainly must be their money
that buys these vehicles of
mass destruction. ATVs don't
come cheap. And someone
with a driver's license and
truck or trailer has to bring
that vehicle to the scrub area.
Someone has to teach these
kids the importance of having
fun, chasing wild creatures,
running over endangered
species, killing off federally
protected plants and birds,
such as the Florida Scrub-jay
- it may as well be your
father or mother who are the
role models.
And don't give me that
jazz, "Well, you know, we all
were brought up in this coun-
ty and we should be able to


use the open areas as we
please." Hogwash! If you had
any conscience about the
preservation of endemic
plants and animals, you
would be you should be -
the first to take a stand
against the decimation of our
scrub lands. Eighty-five per-
cent of our scrub is gone, due
to development and agricul-
ture.
Oh yes just a thought -
how long do you think there
would be an ATV problem if
those ATVs ran amok in
orange groves, over caladium
fields or cattle land. Not very
long I'm sure.
Sheriff [Susan] Benton and
this writer made it perfectly
clear to the recent meeting of
the Legislative Delegation,
that the ATV problem is per-
sistent and needs to be
addressed by state agencies.
To his credit, State
Representative Baxter
Troutman visited the Carter
Creek Scrub area and viewed
with his own eyes the wanton
destruction caused by ATVs.
It is the hope so many of us
have, that Rep. Troutman will
introduce legislation that will
be helpful in this most serious
matter. Please call him at
(863) 298-5220 and thank
him for his concern.
Of course, this writer has a
few suggestions to make, that
if implemented would help
alleviate the ATV problem.
They are as follows:
No. 1 All ATVs should be
registered with the Motor
Vehicle Bureau.
No. 2 ATVs should never
be allowed on any county,
state or federal road.
No. 3 ATV owners must


carry a separate liability
insurance.
No. 4 A written test, as
well as a road test would be
required.
No. 5 Any ATV found
operating in a protected land
area is to be confiscated and
the driver made to make a
tour of the Archbold
Biological Station Scrub area;
followed with a written exam.
No. 6 No person under the
age of 16 is to be allowed to
operate an ATV.
No. 7 All operators must
wear helmets.
No. 8 Proof that the buyer
of an ATV has complied with
numbers 1, 3 and 4 must be
presented to the seller before
the sale is considered com-
plete. If it is found that the
seller does not have this doc-
umentation on file, he would
be subject to fines and possi-
ble loss of his ability to do
business in Highlands
County.
It has taken "Mother
Nature" hundreds of years to
create scrub lands with
insects, plants and animals
found no other place on Earth.
It takes only minutes for a
vehicle such as ATVs to ruin
it forever. Sacrificing this
God-created ecosystem, so
that thrill seeking individuals
can indulge themselves is an
unforgivable sin.

Buttonwood Bay celebrates 50th anniversaries


Are wild horses
keeping you away?
When I was a little girl,
my folks and I spent sever-
al vacations on Cape
Hatteras and the island of
Ocracoke. I'm told I
wouldn't recognize the
Cape today. I have such fun
memories though.
One summer we took a
fishing guide with us off
the shores of Ocracoke. I
don't remember that we
caught a lot of fish or any-
thing spectacular about the
fishing at all. What I do
remember was the guide's
name being Charlie
Weaver. He was a native of
the island and dressed like
the comedian, including the
distinctive hat. See more
details at ttp://en.wikipedia.
org/wiki/Cliff Arquette.
In those days, there was
a museum at Cape Hatteras
that told about the
Lighthouse and the ship-
wrecks off the Outer Banks
of the Carolinas
(www.nps.gov/caha). There
was a wooden ramp and
railing leading into the
museum. I learned that a
person should lift one's
hand from a wooden rail-
ing as one takes a step. The
splinter I got in my hand
took on gargantuan propor-
tions when the museum
volunteer turned out to be a
nurse, and my dad and she
had to perform surgery
(major surgery, to a child)
to remove the careless
splinter.
The island of Ocracoke
could only be reached by a
ferry, a ride that took about
an hour and one-half. You
drove your car onto the fer-
ryboat, then could get out
of your car and stand on
the deck to watch as you
traveled along. It was my
first time to see houses
built on stilts with sand
completely surrounding
them. It would be years
later until I understood the
dynamics of hurricanes and
home construction involv-
ing sand and water.
The most outstanding
feature of Ocracoke, other
than its relative obscurity,
was its wild horses.
www.ocracokevillage.com/i
sland_history_page4.html
At the time we were visit-
ing the island, the horses
were still wild. Many vari-
ous legends regarding their
origins still persist today.
My developing healthy
respect for wildlife, includ-
ing sea creatures, began
also in those early days of
our vacations along the
sand dunes, waterfront and
sea grass. I was fascinated
by the self-contained crabs
that were unburied with the
tides, as well as the beauti-
ful shells to be found along
the beach. I became a self-
appointed expert on shells
and a collector of the
multi-colored periwinkles
(www. seashells. cornm/shells.
htm).
My outstanding memory,
however, was the day a
blue marlin was brought in
and displayed for all to see.
The thing that made that
marlin remarkable was the
huge piece that was miss-
ing by its tail. Apparently,
a shark had decided the
fishing boat was actually
using the marlin as bait and
struck the marlin as it was
being reeled in. Gruesome,
but definitely a lesson in
nature's food chain.

SEBRING Recently, 17 lovebirds
at Buttonwood Bay mobile home com-
munity celebrated 50 years or more
together.
"It's my fifth year putting this togeth-
er. It's a wonderful event. Three hundred
people attended and there were 180 at
the luncheon," Bonnie Amidon said.
Married in the mid-'50s, these cou-
ples grew up in a time and culture that
stressed and valued work, family and
responsibility. Sharing how they each
met and what's important to them are
inspiring statements on love and com-
mitment.


Donald and Doris Benna
Donald and Doris Benna
Doris and Donald Benna met when
they were only 13 years old. They
attended high school in a small
Pennsylvania town and graduated
together. Barely 19 when married, they
feel they lived through both the good
and the bad times by the grace of God
and perseverance.
"We never gave up on each other or
looked elsewhere. It's the easy way out
to think of trading the spouse in for a
new model, but the new one may have a
ding in the front fender. Faultfinding can
..be deruLiLii'.e. and we al"'ways believed
there wasn't a better one. lnie:id tof
looking at the other', bad faults, ouI
really need to examine your own,"
Donald Benna said. They're especially
proud of their son, daughter, grandson,
granddaughter and a great grandchild.

Sweethearts


Mary in eighth grade in north central
Indiana and they dated through high
school. Robert swears he is a romantic.
He even wrote a song about their meet-
ing and life entitled "John Deere
Cowboy." "It's about our family and
spending winters here in Florida. It ends
with: 'you can say that we're soul mates.
I say I love you every day, and she says
I love you too but I'd like to sometimes
change your ways.'"
"We have five kids: three boys and
two girls. We have 12 grandchildren and
another due in June. We always try to
solve our differences. Her job was
always farming with me, not a career on
her own. She was always beside me and
we worked together. We are very roman-
tic. Excessively so. We always had date
nights even when the kids were small. It
helps with communication. I never
dreamed we'd come here and spend our
winters. We've had our nose to the
grindstone since we married. All five
kids went through college. We had our
youngest child when we were 41. He
was bom in August after the blizzard of
'78. Our family is really tight., When
home, every Sunday they all come to our
home after church. They all live within
an hour of the farm. We're one big happy
family," Robert Kitchel said.
Mary agreed that he's romantic. "He
still brings flowers and we still have date
nights. Oh, we've had our trials and
tribulations, but we kept hanging in

in East Chicago, Ind.
"We dated five years before we mar-
ried. I was 19 and he was 21. I don't
remember anybody but him," Sylvia
said.
They were excited about the 50th cel-

were present when they renewed their

Talking to her e,


* This is the second in a five-part series
on Men and Grief that will run every
Friday.

By LARRY LEVEY
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Erv Bender was
talking about sitting down in his lounge
chair, turning on the TV and settling in
to watch Dallas play Seattle in a recent
NFL playoff game. Football is his
favorite sport.
He recalled watching the first half.
"But the next thing I know," he said, "it
was almost the end of the game. I was so
surprised. I wasn't sleeping."
What happened, he explained, was
that the same day of the game would also
have been his and his late wife's 61st
wedding anniversary. "I kept thinking
about that, about the day we got married,
about my life with Elaine.
"I guess I came to when a commercial
came on. They're always so loud. How
did I feel? I felt a sadness. We could
have been celebrating our 61st."
Bender became a widower some 15
months ago. His life since then? "It's
about as good as I can expect," he said,
adding his favorite quote from Abraham
Lincoln: "You can be just as happy as
you put your mind to."
He talks readily about Elaine, describ-
ing her as "my best friend, my leaning
post my business partner."
The two ran a retail bakery business in
Waupaca, Wis. "Some say you can't
work together and go home together and


then stay together. But we had a good
working relationship. We never dis-
agreed with each other at work, never in
front of the employees; any problem we
had we talked about it at home."
One of his first decisions after his
wife died was where to live: remain in
Florida or return to Wisconsin to be near
his son and his family. The answer came
easy. "I have an ankle problem, so it's
better here than up in the snow and ice.
It would be a little confining up there,
especially if I slip and fall."
But he does fly to Wisconsin several
times a year, usually spending most of
his summers there.
How does he manage his life here in
Florida?
"I know I need to occupy my time, my
hands," he said, "and I do stay pretty
active during the day." In fact, his level
of activity has increased over the past
several months. He has returned to one
of his favorite hobbies, woodworking.
His current project is making small fold-
ing tables. And one of these days he
plans on again constructing model air-
planes from empty aluminum cans.
He's also doing more walking around
his retirement community, especially up
to the library in the clubhouse, where he
borrows history books and "good west-
erns."
And he's back playing golf, recently
shooting "the best game I ever had." But
he plays only if his neighbors invite him
out. He admits he does not feel comfort-


and never yells," Sylvia said.
"For me, it was love at first sight.
She's a beautiful lady, has a nice person-
ality and is a good cook. We have lots of
fun together, whether riding a motorcy-
cle or playing tennis. I just love her,"
Donald said.


months. But after he went into the
Reserves for six months he brought me a
ring. It was a cleaned up piston ring from
a tractor. Luckily he had another. He's
always been romantic and a jokester,"
L.inda said. "All four of our kids from
Indiana were here to celebrate with us
and even one grandchild. My advice is to
hang in there and always give a little.
The reward is to be a family, and share
the good times. He still keeps me on my
toes, and pulls jokes."
Charles felt his wife was always easy
to get along with. "She was a city slick-
er when I met her, but she moved into
the country. She adapted and later said
she didn't want to move back to the city.
I've had a better life than I ever imag-
ined. We've accomplished so much.
When we first married, we sat down and
made goals. We thought owning our
house and maybe 80 acres would be a
great achievement. Now we own several
farms and live here every winter. I never
imagined that. My three sons run our
farms now. We raise grain, corn, soy-
beans and tomatoes for a cannery. They
supply national labels like Sweet Bay
and Publix," Charles said.


Donald and Carol Bower


Donald and Carol Bower
Donald Bower was excited to cele-
brate 50 years with his bride, Carol.
Their two daughters attended and their
grandson gave his wife away.
"We're not a big family, but we're all
together. I was 21 and she was 19 when
we met in a small town outside
Pittsburgh. She worked for Kaufman's
Department store and I was unemployed
at the time. Later I worked at US Steel
two years and then Continental Can for
32 years. We came to Florida when we
retired 19 years ago. Each of us knew
when to keep our mouth shut. It's better
to let some things go. We would both
give in. Neither one of us was dominant.
We've had a good life. My wife under-
goes dial)si no.. k '\e look after one
another and have a laid back life now,"'
Donald said.


Charles and Linda Wilson
Linda met Charles Wilson at a rural
youth group in Logansport, Ind. when.
she was 19 and he was 20.
"It wasn't love at first sight. I danced
with others and dated him for six


very nigi

able making the first move. "I'm not that
quite outgoing," he said, although he
thoroughly enjoys the camaraderie that
goes along with golf.
Another upbeat sign is his renewed
interest in his lawn. He's enlisted the aid
of a neighbor to do some landscaping.
He admits he is something of a stay-
at-home-body. "I never go to a restaurant
by myself and I have no interest in join-
ing a singles group. I was invited to join
a support group, but I'd rather sit home.
I'm not a joiner."
He makes his own meals, "except
when my neighbors feed me." Breakfast
consists mainly of cereal with fruit -
he's big on fresh fruit maybe a sand-
wich for lunch, and a frozen dinner or a
hamburger cooked in his toaster oven or
even a couple of eggs in the evening.
"My appetite isn't that good. Elaine was
a good cook. I ate better and healthi-
er."
He does his own shopping and laun-
dry, along with some light house-keep-
ing. A cleaning lady comes in once a
month.
While he's "all right during the day,"
his nights are lonesome. It's often a time
for television, especially football during
the season. "I also like the History
Channel, the Discovery Channel and
A&E," he said. 'I don't watch sitcoms."
Bedtime is a very somber affair. "I
talk to Elaine every night. I talk to her
photographs, usually reminiscing. I have
a real lonely feeling afterwards."


Grover and Patricia Niergarth

Niergarth
Patricia and Grover Niergarth both
grew up in Michigan.
"In 1954, we met in an ornithology
class at Central Michigan University. We
were on a field trip and had to cross a
major highway and somehow her hand
found mine or vice versa. In '56 we mar-
ried. We have four children and 10
grandchildren, and our oldest son
walked his mother down the aisle at the
celebration. When we married, we made
a commitment. And we followed
through. We never had major problems,
only minor ones, because we don't
always agree," Grover said.
Patricia felt an attraction at first sight,
but more importantly discovered they
had the same morals, values and goals.
"That had a lot to do with our success.
We both had a real interest in nature. Our
family is built upon respect for all life.
We were both teachers. He taught col-
lege biology and I taught middle school
English. That helped us be grounded in
our expectations for our kids and their

He takes satisfaction from a scholar-

'Epic Movie' anything but funny


It's difficult to review a film
like "Epic Movie." For starters,
the people who like this kind of
film are going to watch it
regardless of what a review
says. Also, no matter how funny
I might think a comedy is, it's
guaranteed that someone else
would watch the same film and
not laugh once.
And as is the norm for come-
dies of this ilk, some jokes in
the film worked and some most
certainly didn't. Unfortunately,
the number of jokes that
weren't funny vastly outnum-
bered the ones that were.
"Epic Movie" basically con-
sists of 90 minutes of references
to recent hit movies. I counted
18 (and like a dork, I wrote
them all down), although I'm
sure I missed-some.
Believe it or not, the film
does have a plot. Well, sort of.
The action revolves around four
orphans: Edward (Kal Penn of
"Harold and Kumar Go to
White Castle" fame), Peter
(Adam Campbell, who also
appeared in "Date Movie"),
Lucy (Jayma Mays), and Susan
(Faune A. Chambers). They are
tricked and kidnapped by a
Willy Wonka look-alike (played
by the great Crispin Glover,
perhaps the greatest character
actor of the last 30 years), who
wants to use their body parts to
make candy. Seriously.
From there, the majority of
the film is an homage to "The
Chronicles of Narnia," as the
foursome escapes through a
closet into the not-so-cleverly
named land of "Gnarnia." They
encounter a queen whose name
I cannot use in a family news-
paper (played by American
Pie's Jennifer Coolidge), who
wants to enslave the orphans.
Or something like that.
The plot really doesn't matter
at this point, because the rest of

the film is just an excuse to
make decidedly un-subtle refer-
ences to famous movies. Some
of the films referenced include:
"The Da Vinci Code," "Snakes
on a Plane," "Pirates of the
Caribbean," "Harry Potter,"
"Click" and in a strange case of
spoofing a satire, "Borat."'
The film was co-directed by
Jason Friedberg and Aaron
Seltzer, the same team who co-
wrote all four films in the
"Scary Movie" franchise, as
well as last year's "Date
Movie." The film features
cameos by several talented
actors, including Darrell
Hammond of "Saturday Night
Live" fame, the great Fred
Willard, David Carradine and
Carmen Electra.

As is often the case in recent
movies of this type, several of
the references just felt forced,
while others fell completely
flat.
But there were some gen-
uinely clever moments, includ-
ing an excellent takeoff on the
famous "Lazy Sunday" music
video from "Saturday Night
Live," and a hilarious send-up
of MTV's "Cribs." But unfortu-
nately, these moments were few
and far between. "Epic Movie,"
like so many comedies, relies
too much on cheap humor.
Spoof movies used to clever-
ly make fun of tired movie
cliches. But now the spoofs
have developed their own tired
cliches: an over-reliance on
cheap sight gags, fart jokes, and
the like. These things apparent-
ly remain funny to some audi-
ences after all, these movies
are still being made and they
continue to do decent business
at the box office.
But speaking as someone
who absolutely loves a good
comedy, I say enough is
enough. If studios are going to
keep on cranking out movies
like "Epic Movie," is it too hard
to ask to make them clever?
"Epic Movie" could have
really torn into some of the ter-
rible Hollywood blockbuster


movies they constantly refer-
ence. "Not Another Teen
Movie" for instance, a vastly
superior film to "Epic Movie,"
was funny because it exposed
teen movies for the mindless,
formulaic, cliched films that
they tend to be. "Epic Movie"
could have done something
very similar.
But what "Epic Movie" does
instead is merely reference the
movies it's supposed to be
spoofing. And while this might
be a safer way of moviemaking,
it's not nearly as funny. After
watching "Epic Movie," and
seeing how similar it was to
"Scary Movie 4" and "Date
Movie," the first thought I had
was simple: Why was this
movie made?
So while "Epic Movie" had
its funny moments, the film's
utter lack of imagination keeps
it from being anything other
than mediocre.

and our oldest kids were in high school

happy when we called those teenagers
at school to announce they had a baby

Robert and Lois Paschen


Gerald and Charlotte Blind
Gerald Blind met Charlotte in
Rochester, N.Y.
"I was 25 and fresh out of the serv-
ice. I robbed the cradle. She was 19
and just out of high school and I met
her through her brother. I remember
how tough she was to endure my trick
work. I worked different hours each
week at Rochester Gas and Electric. It
operated 24/7 and I was part of the
crew that kept it running. That made it
hard for her with our two kids. The
secret for a good marriage is to be very
forgiving and not take on trick work.
It's too trying. Now we've become like
one. We're always together. We never
do anything separate. We used to golf,
swim and take long walks. Due to ill-
ness, I had to give it up, so now we're
homebodies," Gerald said.

Vernon and Carolyn
Brewer
Vernon (Ron) Brewer met Carolyn
in her living room in Middletown,
Ohio. He had been visiting a buddy
that had four sisters.
"We were 18. I thought he was
awful good looking. It didn't take long.
We have five kids and 11 grandchil-
dren. He treats me like a queen. We're
kind to each other and don't call each
other names or cuss each other. He's
romantic. He makes me coffee every
morning. He still opens my car door.
He does more for me than I do for him.
I think he's the best looking man that
ever walked and I tell him all time how
much I care for him. And I mean what
I say. We're very affectionate. We still
hold hands when walking. It's like
we're still kids. I think so much of him.
He's a person who believes in God and
who reads the Bible every day. I think
that's important in keeping couples
together. I picked well when I was
young and knew what kind of guy I
was marrying," Carolyn said.


Robert and Lois Paschen
Lois met Robert Paschen in 1950 in
Indiana while swimming at a lake with
a group of other kids.
"He was a senior and I was a fresh-
man. We dated, then he went into the
service, and two years after I graduat-
ed, we married. We have one boy, three
girls and 13 grandkids. Our oldest
grandson gave me away at the celebra-
tion and he's getting married March 17
in Orlando. I told him this was practice
and a good example for him. Marriage
is not always roses, but you must
always work it out and never walk
away. He's.always been there when I
needed him. We do everything togeth-
er. We've always been farmers togeth-
er. We still raise livestock and crops in
the summer. Our son takes care of it in
the winter. It's a corporation and we
work for him now," Lois said.


Raymond and Mary Lou
Scott
Mary Lou met Raymond Scott when
she was 15 and he was 17. He'd just
moved to Erie, Pa. and was a friend of
her brothers.
She said, "We ran away and got
married. We went to Winchester, Va.
because we thought they wouldn't
require my parents, permission, but
they called and got it from them. It's
been fun and we've had good years.
We have four children,10 grandchil-
dren, and one great grandchild. The
most important thing is being aware of
each other's feelings. It's very impor-
tant to not always be me, me, me."
"Mary Lou is very good looking.
Although everything has slowed down
- you must use it or lose it. We have
lots of mutual interests, like kayaking,
bike riding and camping with the kids.
Our form of camping is more luxurious
now. We've got a great family and
great kids. Everything worked out
good. They said it wouldn't work, but
here we are. I hope she'll keep me
another 50 years." Raymond said.

Stanley and Margaret Turl


Jacques and Jean Trahan
Jacques Trahan met Jean when he
was a 15-year-old paperboy in
Burlington, Vt.
"Jean attended an all-girls school.
My neighbor played cupid for a school
dance. She wore a white dress with big
hoop and she still has the corsage. We
dated through high school and college
- although she attended all-girls'
schools. It wasn't hard though. I lived
across the street and we went out for
eight years. Then in the service, I pro-
posed. At the time she worked at the
Pentagon in Washington. I swung by
on furlough and took her to Vermont.
Then I gave her a ring and proposed.
We never go to bed mad and our secret
is lots of patience," Jacques said.
Jean agreed. "Yes, with 10 kids, it
took a lot of everyday living. We lost
one girl at birth and have five boys and
four girls now. There are 18 grandkids
and one great-grandchild..Love is the
main thing. We have lots of wonderful
memories and we live on that. While
raising those children I wondered if I
would survive it. We didn't have
Pampers and conveniences. At one
point we had five kids less than 4 years
of age and celebrated five December
birthdays. Then you miss them when
they grow up. Our 'baby' is now 34


Robert aid Nan Immel


Robert and Nan Immel
Robert Immel was 27 and Nan was
21 when they met. He was working
with Sealtest in southern Michigan,
calling on farmers. At the time Nan
taught in a one-room schoolhouse in
the country. One of the farmers had
been his friend in college and knew
they were both single and invited them
over for Sunday dinner.
"He was our matchmaker. 'Nan told
her mom that I was the man for her,
and in eight months we were married.
Our two daughters and son were here
to help us celebrate. We also have five
granddaughters. Marriage requires lots
of understanding and patience. I went
back to college and earned two more
degrees. Lots of time I was gone and
had to travel for 20 years. She's my
partner, my companion. We enjoy sim-
ilar things travel, volunteering,
helping others. I love her," Robert said.


Stanley and Margaret
'Turl
Margaret was only 16 when she met
18 year-old Stanley Turl in 1954. '
"My Mom had passed away in
March, and I was told I had to go to
school or work. So I went to work at
National Paper Goods in Hamilton,
Ontario, Canada. My first day I could-
n't find my time card. I cried when the
bell rang and knew I was late. Stanley
ran around the corner and almost
knocked me over. He took my hand,
calmed me down, and helped me out.
He was a machine adjuster there. A
year later we started going together
and in '57 we married. It's a 50-50
deal. If he needs me, I help. I always
ask him 'Could you do this for me?' I
always appreciated it and said thank
you. I still say it. And I mean it. I'm
short and need help getting stuff out of
the cupboard. We can talk for hours
about anything. Or sometimes not at,
all. We know each other so well. He
finishes my sentences or if I think of
something I'd like, 10 minutes later
he's bringing it to me. He's my soul
mate, my partner, lover and doctor.
When I had my hip replaced, he was
beside me at the hospital from at 8 a.m.
to 9 p.m. every day. I still can't bend to
tie my shoes. He helps me take them
off. He says he doesn't mind. It's been
a good 50 years. When we renewed our
vows at the Christmas parade, he had a
cardboard sign on our golf cart that


Desha and Florence Van Every


Desha and Florence Van
Every
Desha Van Every met Florence in
Naples, Italy.
"Five of us got off the ship. Florence
was onlyl6, and I was 18. She was
with her little brother and he ran up to
us. I got him and somehow we talked
her into taking us home. Her dad was
stationed there. It was love at first sight
for me. I'm still wondering about her.
Later, I was in the Philippines. We only
spent a total of 18 days together before
marrying. I even sent her rings in the
mail. I couldn't get off to see her. Our
marriage is based on compromise, giv-
ing in and helping each other. We have
three kids. I tell her I love her and we
never go to bed angry," he said.
Florence said it was hard to believe
that during those three years they only
spent 18 days together. "Letters were
the key. But he never really asked me
to marry him. He wrote and asked
what my folks would think if we got
married. He even sent the rings
through the mail. It was a big package
and I kept unwrapping. The post office
had told him it was too small, so he
kept wrapping it in bigger packages.
He's thoughtful in helping around the


Harry and Marilyn Staul


Harry and Marilyn Staul
Marilyn was 25 and Harry Staul was
33 when they married. They'd met the
year before on a blind date with their
best friends. In Sharon, Pa. she worked
at Westinghouse, while he worked at
the Warren Steel Plant.
"We have two kids, a boy and a girl
plus five grandchildren. "Ours was a
gradual dating and falling in love. He's
energetic and liked the same things I
liked. We'd go to movies, nightclubs,
plays and other entertainment. He still
takes me out -dinner and does things
around house. He always tries to
please me," Marilyn said.

Donald and Marielouise
Lilja
In 1955, Donald Lilja was 22 when
he met 19-year-old Marielouise with a
group at an ice cream parlor in
Brooklyn, N.Y. Their first date was a
hayride on Staten Island. They were
married in 1957 and have three sons
and two grandchildren.
He said, "We lived in Vermont for
25 years then moved down here. We
both try harder. We have the same val-
ues and believe in marriage. We
worked harder when there were tough
times and never gave up. I'm not terri-
bly romantic, but we do things for each
other."
Recently Marielouise had a hip.
operation and has been bedridden. "I
can get out of bed, but not back in, so
twice in night I have to wake him from -
a sound sleep to put me back into bed,"
Marielouise said.

Howard and Beatrice Flota
Pastor Howard Flota has been offici-
ating at these 50th anniversary celebra-
tions for 14 years at Buttonwood. He
and his wife Beatrice have lived here
16 years and they celebrated their 67
years of marriage at Thanksgiving.
He's been a minister for 54 years.
"Our secret is to work everything
out together and pray over things. We
have. a 50-50 relationship and we do
everything together. We're never
divided. We consider everything
beforehand and talk about it. We're in
church all the time. I think that helps
families. Our boy and girl are twins.
We're family people. It's important to
learn to say 'Yes dear.' We met in high
school when we were 15, then dated
four years and got married at 19. Over
the years, we have fallen in love many
times, over and over. We knew that
when we got married it was for keeps
and never thought about divorce. We
both had good parents. Home life has
lots to do with the success of a mar-
riage. We're old fashioned, but it's fun-
damental and biblical. The Lord
blessed us with good health and good
kids," Howard said


It is time for reflection, decisions and


Greetings everyone, I apolo-
gize that I haven't written in
some time to those of you who
enjoy reading my articles. The
holidays and projects at work
have kept me way to busy no
excuse though because I should
always make time for the
Lord's work. I have been study-
ing the Grace Covenant in
Ephesians 1-3. Please read
these chapters so next time
when I write about them you
will have an understanding of
what I'm sharing with you. I
will be sharing with you what I
have learned about living under
the Grace Covenant and not
under the Law Covenant.
In the weeks to come I will
share with you what I have
learned; it takes some time to
fully understand. This week I
want to share some things with
you that I learned about as I
reflected on my life so far. The
other day I was reflecting on
my life choices, have you ever
done that? Do you ever wonder
where your life would be today
if you had made different choic-


es in the paths you took? I, like
many of you, have made many
choices good and bad.
Right after high school I was
supposed to move to Tampa and
attend a technical college for
computers. The school was paid
for by a relative and all I had to
do was go and I choose not to. I
wonder how different would
my life be if I had gone. I have
two wonderful daughters and I
wouldn't trade them for the
world, I know we all think that
way about our children. But
besides our children how differ-
ent do you think your life would
have been? The path I chose has
provided me with some won-
derful experiences as well as
some hard aches.
A little history about myself;
I grew up Catholic until I was
about 16 and then fell away
from the church. I attend church
sporadically through my adult
years until after my second
divorce I was invited to church
by a fellow officer and was
saved in October 2000. That is
just one example, I have many


more reflections on
my life but I won't
bore you with them. I
think of the events to
lead me to salvation
and it is amazing.
How many testi-
monies have you
heard from people
about how they were
lead to the Lord?
Their testimonies are
riddled with many
choices. I believe that
the Lord guides us to
him through the Holy
Spirit, sometimes we
listen, sometimes we

don't.


However we came to the place
we are, one thing is ultimately
true, we can not change the
past. The mistakes we have
made, the regrets, and the
choices can not be changed. We
must live with the choices we
have made. Some of us live
with consequences and some
with blessings depending on the
choices we have made.
The Bible tells us the Christ
died for the sins of the world,


past, present and
future for the
whole world, all of
us. Though we can
not change our past
choices, we can
change or future
ones. The choices.
you make everyday
can either bring you
closer to the Lord or
push you further
away. Maybe you
have made bad deci-
sions that have
caused problems in


your marriage, with
your children, in your careers,
and,in your personal walk with
Christ. You may have suffered
divorces, like me, lost or
become distant with your chil-
dren, lost your job or even lost
your freedom a few times sit-
ting in a jail cell.
All of it can change ... today.
All you have to do is ask Jesus
Christ, your Lord and Savior,
into your life, claim forgiveness
for your sins through the blood
of Christ and choose (since God


gave you free will to make
choices) to turn your life
around. Choose not to hang out
with those so called friends that
keeping encouraging you to do
things you know are wrong,
choose to redeem your mar-
riage, choose to not sin but
choose to do right choose to
follow Christ. Don't blame any-
one for the consequences of
your choices. Ultimately you
made the decision; you can say
it was your parents fault for
how they raised you, your kids
fault for pushing you to far,
your friends fault for talking
you into doing something or
any other excuse you can think
of. You still had to choose to do
it. You can say yes or no to any
choices that come up in your
life so take responsibility for
your life and make the choice to
change it today.
The Lord tells us that tomor-
row is promised to no one.
Tomorrow, next Sunday, next
month, when you get out of jail,
after you fix your marriage
whatever may be too late. You
can live in the past and keep
making the same wrong choices


purposee
or you can live for today and do
a 180 and turn your life around
it is never too late. God has a
plan for everyone's life; his
promise is to bless us with all
the riches of Heaven and Earth.
You have a purpose in this life
but you must let God in your
life and follow his direction to
understand what that purpose is.
And the good news is that
unlike much of the human race,
he does not want you to fail -
he wants you to succeed.
Today decide what path you
will take your life depends
on it.
I pray these words that the
Lord has given me to share with
you touch your heart and help
you make the right choices.
God bless you and all that you
do.

And Another
Thing ...

Avon Park's James Bland gets a grip on Jensen Beach's Peter Rubrica during Bland's first-round win Thursday at the Lakeland Center.


All six wrestlers still alive at


State, four with first-round wins

' LAKELAND About the only thing
that went wrong for Highlands County's
four regional champions in Thursday's
first round of the Class 1A state finals at
the Lakeland Center had nothing to do


with wrestling.
Avon Park's James Bland
and Josue Ortiz and Sebring
Blue Streaks Shaanan
Spiegel and Tim Mikula all
won their first matches to
advance to today's 10 a.m.
quarterfinals, but Mikula
had to take a short break
during his bout due to a lit.-
tle over-indulgence at
breakfast.
Turns out Krystal burgers
and lemonade are not a
good combination the
morning of a big match.
The intestinal intermis-
sion aside, Mikula made a


to let it happen."
Mikula has a lot to live up.to this year.
Besides being last year's state runner-up
in his weight class, he's also the cover
model for the tournament program,
which features a snapshot of his finals
bout last season.


'I wanted to

make a

statement

that nobody

here is going

to beat me.'

TIM MIKULA,
Sebring 189-pounder


big statement that he's going to be a fac-
tor in the 189-pound bracket once again
this year, stopping Benny Ball of
Jacksonville-Jackson in 3:49 to open hi,
campaign.
"I wanted to make a statement that
nobody here is going to beat me," Mikula
;(35-2) said. "I know it's possible I could
,get beat, but I'm going to try my best not
f


the finals


"I don't want
there for second.
be on there for
said.


to be on
I want to
first," he


Sebring coach Dave
* Cunningham told Mikula

Getting along

not always easy

for pro athletes
The NFL season is over,
and it seemed the flurry of
firings, interviews and hir-
ings had finished as well.
That was until news came
out that Marty
Schottenheimer had been
axed by the San Diego
Chargers.
The team had gone 14-2,
would be bringing back the
bulk of the same players, and
the future looked bright.
Sure, the team lost its
share of coaches and coordi-
nators, which is what often
happens when a team has
success.
Being the gracious boss
that he was to his assistants,
Marty was more than happy
to allow them to go out on
interviews to advance their
respective careers.
This didn't sit well with
general manager A.J. Smith,
however, and the apparently
contentious relationship
reached its breaking point.
This isn't the first time
two people on a sports team-
didn't get along, and it won't
be the last.
This isn't the first time a
team, or tandem, has had to
be split apart due to such a
circumstance.
Look at the not-too-distant
demise of the Los Angeles
Lakers.
Not happy sharing the
spotlight with Shaquille
O'Neal, whom he didn't care
much for anyway, Kobe
Bryant wanted no part of
having the big man on his
team anymore despite having

Sebring wins, Lake Placid

loses in Wednesday games
By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel. hoehne@newssun.com
AVON PARK The second night of the Bill
Jarrett Ford Early Bird Tournament saw the tem-
peratures dropping, though not quite to snow-pro-
ducing levels.
But for the Avon Park Red Auburndale
Devils, the bats were cold and
things snowballed out of control in
a 15-0, six-inning loss to the 5l
Auburndale Bloodhounds in Avon Park
Thursday's second contest.,
Things started out innocently
enough, with a scoreless first 0
inning tossed by Avon Park starter
Corey Topa, and the Devils' own leadoff hitter got
on base due to a Bloodhound error.
But no scoring came out of it for the Devils, and
a combination of errors and bases on balls helped
lead to three Auburndale runs in the second.
Topa worked a scoreless third, but the
Bloodhounds pawed their way to two more in the


fourth for a 5-0 lead.
Another leadoff batter got on base in the fifth
for Avon Park, in the form of Dillan Runner. But
he had little chance to run as a double-play
grounder put him back on the pine.
Matt Devil then worked a walk, but was forced
at second to end any scoring chance.
The top of the sixth was when the little snowball
of the five-run lead began rolling down the hill,
gathering steam and growing ever larger.
Auburndale runs came in often and in a variety
of ways such as bases-loaded walks, errors and
dropped third strikes.
When the dust or snow had settled, 10
runs had crossed the plate on two hits, giving Avon
Park little hope of staving off a shortened game.
Topa did blast a one-out double in the bottom of
the sixth, but would be left adrift as the game came
to a perhaps merciful close.

their way to a 7-5 win.
Chas Alben went back up the middle
with a one-out single in the top of the
first, and Charlie Peck followed with a
blast over the right-field wall for a quick
2-0 lead.
Peck got things going again in the
third, rocketing a double off the left-field
wall and scoring when J.C. Shoop's fly
ball to center was mishandled.
Colt Williams then reached on an
error, putting runners on first and third,
which soon became second and third
when Williams stole second. Ryan
Thorlton followed with a single that plat-
ed both runners for a 5-0 Blue Streak
lead.
Sebring southpaw Cory Ritter, mean-
while, was keeping the Thunder lineup
quiet, scattering five hits over five
innings of work. His only blemish came
in the bottom of the fourth, where a bit of
wildness and one of those scattered hits
loaded the bases with nobody out.
But Ritter induced a foul pop that was
nabbed by first baseman Tony Vazquez
for the first out.
A fielder's choice got a run in, but also
got the second out before Ritter ended
the inning with his only strikeout of the
game.
The Streaks got that run back and
added another in the sixth when, with
Alben and Peck on first and third,
respectively, Vazquez hit a sacrifice fly
and Shoop hit a run-scoring single, mak-
ing it 7-1.
Sophomore Cody Higgins came to the
mound in the bottom of the sixth for
some work, but soon found himself in
trouble, loading the bases with nobody
out before pinch hitter Rafael Suarez
laced a double to left-center, scoring two
runs.
A walk reloaded the bases, a sacrifice
fly brought in another run and a bunt sin-
gle had the sacks full again.
"He had a couple pitches we thought
were strikes and the umpire thought were
balls," head coach Hoppy Rewis said.
"That got him in a hole and he threw
some balls that they could hit."
Steven Fortner came on in relief and
slammed the door, striking out his first
Thunder batter on three pitches and end-

ing the inning on a fly out.
But the excitement meter was back on
high in the bottom of the seventh as Lake
Region loaded the bases again with two
out.
Zack Strang fell behind in the count to
Fortner, but worked his way to a walk to
make it 7-5, but Fortner got the next hit-
ter to bounce back to him to record the
final out.
Peck turned out to be the big bat, col-
lecting four hits on the night, but Rewis
is glad to know that's not his only
weapon.
"Charlie had a great night, but we have
a different person doing that every
night," he said. "We think we have a
lineup that it won't be the same couple of
people every night, and we even have
some guys on the bench that will be able
to come in and pick the other guys up.
"We hit well, we pitched a good game,
too," he continued. "We had what we
wanted to see happen, we didn't want it
to be that nerve-wracking, but we got it
done."


Auburndale 5
Lake Placid 1
In the opener on Wednesday, Green
Dragon Adam Delgado and Bloodhound
Brad Dean locked up in a pitchers' duel,
each giving up a single run through five
innings, with each hurler doing some
damage with the bats.
Auburndale scratched first as Dean
doubled home a run in the third, but Lake
Placid answered in the fourth when Josh
Myers ripped a one-out single and stole
second, then came around to score on a
Delgado single to even things at 1-1.
The game remained tied until two outs
in the sixth, when a bit of Dragon wild-
ness unleashed the Bloodhound gang. A
walk, two singles, a double and three hit
batsmen by Delgado and reliever David
Samperi plated four runs for the visitors.
Dean then got through the bottom of the
sixth and Andrew Quiles shut Lake
Placid down in the seventh for the
Auburndale win.


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID -
Seminole Tire defeated Lake
Placid Marine 22-5 in Lake
Placid Senior Softball League
action at the Lake June ball
fields on Wednesday to move
into a first-place tie with Lake
Placid Marine, giving both
teams records of 6-3.
Todd Martin and Harley
Smith led the offense of
Seminole with five hits each
as well as making two out-
standing defensive plays.
Larry Oser had a three-run
homer among his four hits,
Cal Bready had four hits and
Jim Radcliff, Mike Jurmu and
Andy Anderson added three
hits each to the winning
cause.
Victor Rodriquez continued
his hitting streak with four
hits and Rod Palmer con-
tributed four more hits in the
losing cause for Lake Placid
Marine:
The other game on
Wednesday saw a hitting clin-
ic by the Michelle Yates
Insurance team in a 31-14 win


over Central Security before
Harlan Newby's "fan club"
visiting from Wisconsin.
Moe Pier led the way with
a 6-for-6 day, followed by
John Miller with five hits,
including two home runs.
Glen Minnick also had five
hits, including a triple and
two doubles, and Ray
Heissenberg and George
Lavoi had four hits each with
two of Lavoi's hits being
home runs.
Central Security's offense
once again was led by Dana
Hurlbut, Tow Walsh and Jim
Hensley with three hits each.
The win moved Yates
Insurance to a .500 record for
the season at 4-4, while the
loss moved Central Security
deeper into last place with a
record of 1-8.
The usual hot dogs and
hamburgers after the games
were supplemented by a cake
to celebrate the 89th birthday
of the senior member of the
league, Al Chipps, which is
today.

Continued from ID
just won his third consecu-
tive championship.
Way back when, the Dallas
Mavericks had a young trio
of much heralded players that
looked to compose the nucle-
us of a winning team for
years to come.
But Jason Kidd, Jamaal
Mashburn and Jim Jackson
just couldn't get along, with
rumors of jealousy and com-
petition in dating singer Toni
Braxton.
It even happened with my
beloved Cubs. Despite being
five outs away from getting
to the World Series in 2003,
the team was quick to shove
a declining Sammy Sosa out
the door.
After years of carrying the
club on his broad though
now shrinking shoulders,
it soon became apparent that
he wasn't too well liked on
the team by anyone.
But who says teams have
to get along to be successful?
The Yankees of the 1970s
were, by all accounts, at each
others throats quite a bit,
especially manager Billy
Martin and slugger Reggie
Jackson.
Speaking of the '70s, those
bickering, badgering Bad
News Bears seemed to do all
right, didn't they?
There was plenty of fric-
tion with the championship


Bulls teams of the 1990s,
with center Bill Cartwright
one time threatening to break
Michael Jordan's legs.
The team was actually uni-
fied by its collective hatred
of general manager Jerry
Krause.
Point being, while a har-
monious relationship within a
team, throughout an organi-
zation would seem to make


things run more smoothly
and lead to success, that isn't
a sure-fire solution.
Teammates don't have to
be buddies, players and
coaches aren't supposed to
pal around and management
and players rarely get along.
"You don't have to like
each other," said Denzel
Washington as coach Herman
Boone in Remember the


Titans, "but you will respect
each other."
And that's what it boils
down to.

STATE
Continued from 1D
impressed with Laxton's match,
he had to be impressed with the
performance turned in by Avon
Park 215-pounder Josue Ortiz,
who needed just 39 seconds to
pin Mario Mendoza of North
Palm Beach-Benjamin.
It was the sixth straight pin
for Ortiz in the postseason, and
the senior didn't look nervous
at all in his state tournament
debut.
"Some of us let it get to us
and some of us don't," Avon
Park coach Ed Brown said. "I
keep trying to tell them it's just
another day at the office. They
don't see anything different
here than they see all year.
Yeah, the competition's
tougher, but it's just another
match. When they accept that
perspective, I think they do bet-
ter. When they get all worked
up about it ... they get all shook
up and they don't focus."
Ortiz's teammate, 160-pound
sophomore James Bland, was
focused enough to get a 7-3 win
over Peter Rubrica of Jensen'
Beach in his first-round match.
"James had a real tough
match," Brown said. "That kid
was real strong, but James
came out with a good end to
that one. The scary thing is that
kid placed fourth (at his region-
al) and James was first."
The victory was a big
improvement over Bland's two-
and-out showing at last year's
state meet.
"He's matured a lot, his
skills have gotten better and
he's a lot sharper," Brown said,
"I think James is ready, I really
do."
Despite being a state tourney
veteran, Spiegel got off to a
shaky start in his 145-pound
opener, but eventually took
over control of his match with
Clewiston's Arsenio Ramirez


and prevailed, 4-2.
"Shaanan was a little nervous
out there at the beginning, but I
think he'll calm down now,"
Cunningham said, adding that
Spiegel will face a much
tougher test in today's quarter-
final against Austin Edwards of
Fort Lauderdale-Cardinal
Gibbons. "His whole bracket is
tough. There's eight good kids
left in there."
Things got off to a little
rougher start for Avon Park
152-pounder Kemosi Hatten, a
regional runner-up, and Sebring
119-pound Ronnie Sliwicki,
who was third.
Sliwicki was tied 2-2 with
Nick Moore of Panama City
Beach-Arnold at the end of reg-
ulation, but lost 6-2 in over-
time.
"It was a tough match,"
Cunningham said. "(The loss)
doesn't hurt us a whole lot. I
think the bracket works out bet-
ter for us this way than if he
lost in the second round."
Sliwicki began his climb
back toward a possible third-
place medal Thursday after-
noon with an 18-5 major deci-
sion over Jon Galamay of Fort
Lauderdale-Archbishop
McCarthy. He will wrestle
again today in the second round
of wrestlebacks, which start at
2 p.m.
Hatten's state tournament
debut was a struggle, as he fell
9-0 to Josh Trippett of Baker
County-Glen St. Mary's. :
"He's got a long road coming
back now," Brown said. "It's
his first state tournament. I
think he had lots of butterflies
- maybe even bats in his
stomach. He was really nerv-
ous."
The nerves were apparently
gone in the wrestlebacks, as
Hatten dominated Damarian
Allen of Clewiston for an 18-3
technical fall to keep his medal
hopes alive.


Scenes from state


News-Sun photos by SCOTT DRESSEL
(Clockwise from above) Avon Park coach Ed Brown
uses a cup for a megaphone to get his instructions to
his wrestlers in the noisy arena. A photo featuring
Sebring's Tim Mikula in his loss in the 189-pound final
last year adorns the cover of the program. Avon Park's
James Bland doesn't seem too nervous as he catches a
nap while waiting for his match on Thursday.
