Waiting an agony of worry

Effect of Virginia Tech tragedy reaches into Highlands County


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Monday had started out joy-
.fully for Avon-Park attorney Warwick Furr
III, with an e-mail containing a picture of his
daughter's new baby.
But Furr's son-in-law; the baby's father,
teaches in Norris Hall on the campus of
Virginia Tech, where 30 students and teach-
ers were shot to-death Monday, and terror
soon replaced joy.
"My heart was in my throat until we heard
he and his students were OK," Furr said.,
There are many in Highlands County with
strong ties to the small university where 32
people were shot to death in two incidents
on Monday by a gunman who then killed


'It is another home to me I used to
cut through Norris Hall every third
day to get to the parking lot.'

Sebring football coach, Virginia Tech alumnus
himself. For them, puzzlement is almost as
powerful as grief as they try to make sense
of the senseless.
They describe an affluent area of wooded
subdivisions tucked into the Blue Ridge
Mountains.
The school itself has a campus of about
2,300 acres, its buildings built of a stone
quarried locally.

SFCC regularly updates

disaster preparation plans


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK -- The tragedy at
Virginia Tech.that left 33 people
dead and dozens others injured
has college campuses across 'the
country scrambling to set up quick


responses to such scenar-
ios.
At South Florida
Community College,
however, there are com-
mittees that meet regu-
larly to talk about how to
respond to both man-
made and natural disas-
ters.
. "We have an emer-
gency response team that
we can gather quickly.
Additionally, we have a
safety committee that
meets regularly to dis-
cuss how to handle dif-
ferent kinds of situations
that could affect the
school," said SFCC Vice
President for
Administrative Services
Glenn Little.


Campus security is just part of
his job, but it is one that remains
at the top of his priority list.
"We certainly want to protect
our people. We have a responsibil-


ity to ensure that our students are
safe as well as our. faculty and
staff," he said.
Little explained that on SFCC's
Highlands Campus in Avon Park,
there is a full-time security force
that has communications capabili-


ties and can call' admin-

Furr, his voice subdued, pointed out the

a young man could feel so powerless all he
could do was kill.

DCF took away


his rights, court


gave them back

Attorney: 'Heads should be
rolling' at DCF after parental
rights stripped without notice
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Unless Department of Children
and Families files a re-hearing motion, Jack
Edwards' parental rights to 17-year-old son "JJ."
will be restored today.
In a 3-0 decision filed March '30, Florida's
Fifth District Court of Appeal affirmed that DCF
didn't diligently search for Edwards, of Avon
Park, as required to notify him that his parental
rights were being terminated.
"What I would like to happen is my son to
come back and live with me here," Edwards said
Tuesday, sitting in a conference room at the law
office of Gary Gossett Jr.
But, J.J. is still a ward of the state and Edwards
doesn't know when he'll get to see his son, or if
he'll get custody.
J.J. had been living with his mother, Sonya, in
Hernando County. His parents never married
each other, though at times they lived together.
Edwards would only see J.J. every few
months, having to make the drive up from
Highlands County.
"Somewhere along the line, she had screwed
up," Edwards said, explaining' the events that
resulted in DCF taking custody of J.J. when he
was 12 or 13. "My son was being protected by
the police." ." .
J.J. and a half-sister apparently \ ere in and out
of DCF custody before their mother reportedly
signed away her parental rights.
, Edwards was paying child support to the state.
catching up on back payments wheniit told him
he no longer owed.
"My parental rights were terminated,"
Edwards said, explaining he wasn't previously
contacted.
According to court documents, DCF used the
last-resort measure of filing a public notice via
.newspaper publication because it didn't have a
social security number or last-known address for
Edwards.
Naturally, Edwards didn't respond to the
notice, having never seen it.
Attempts to contact DCF were unsuccessful.
Nobody there would confirm his son's case exist-
ed.
"Nobody would listen to me," he said.

County plans several



evaluation meetings


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.comn
SEBRING Florida law
requires local governments to
evaluate their comprehensive
plans every seven years.
The Highlands County
Planning Department is call-
ing on residents to attend a
series of meetings that will
help it determine the comp-
plan's successes and failures,
Corine Burgess, public infor-
mation officer, said in a press
release.
"The evaluation will focus


on major community planning
issues," Burgess said, noting
that the resulting report
should identify changes nec-
essary to respond to the eval-
uation, trends, conditions and
growth management policies.
In addition to identifying
major issues and their poten-
tial social, economic and
environmental impacts, the
Planning Department seeks to
assess whether comp-plan
objectives (relative to major
issues) have been achieved.
Based on the issues raised


Sheriff s office looking for

-photos of Hancock, Wolff


News-Sun staff reports
SEBRING The
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office has recently placed a
wall of honor inside its main
lobby.
Hanging on that wall are
photos of all previous sheriffs
of Highlands County.
However, photos of two sher-
iffs are missing.
Pat Mann, executive assis-
tant at the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office, said the
department is looking for
photos of R.H. (Robert)
Hancock, who served from
1922-1927, and O.E. (Oscar)


and the circumstances causing
them, the county will seek
corrective measures from
comprehensive plan amend-
ments to policy revisions as
necessary.
Three public meetings are
planned 7 p.m. Monday,
Agri-Civic Center in
Conference Room 11; 7 p.m.
April 30, Avon Park Council
Chambers (behind City Hall);

SEBRING With Earth
Day around the corner, the
county commissioners on
Tuesday approved seven
Adopt-A-Road agreements
with area businesses and civic
organizations.
Other board action includ-
ed proclamations recognizing
Law Day, Water Conservation
Month and the retirement of
Kevin Roberts, director,
Children Services Council.
"Your leadership in this
county has been tremendous,"
commission chairman C. Guy
Maxcy said, describing
Roberts as a patient but perse-
vering civil servant with
Christian values.
Roberts has 34 years vested
in health and human services,
16 with Highlands County
and 18 with the state,
He credited his boss Carl
Cool, county administrator,
with creating an environment
conducive to his work of
using private-public partner-
ships to address issues, while
the work was carried out by
his staff and volunteers.
The council appointed
Roberts as an honorary life-
time member of the
Children's Services .Council,
a title previously bestowed on
,four others.
Avon Park attorney
Warwick "Bud" Furr's "Law
Day" proclamation took a
somber tone following
Monday's massacre at
Virginia Tech.
The theme, "Liberty Under
Law: Empowering Youth," is
to remind developing minds
and citizens to not take their
fundamental rights for grant-
ed, Furr said.
The shooting in Virginia,
he said, was an example of an
individual who felt he could-
n't operate within- the- con-


fines of the law.
Missie Barletto, of the
South Florida Water
Management District, asked
the county to declare April as
"Water Conservation Month."
In other county business,
the board approved an agree-
ment for the 2006-2007 rail-
road crossing signal safety
program for Ranier Drive in
Lake Placid; approved an
amendment to the Office of
Tourism, Trade and Economic
Development agreement with
Georgia-Pacific, adopted the
action steps for the board's
three goals and approved a
resolution opposing Florida
legislation that would limit
the county's ability to regu-
late its wetlands.
Commissioner Edgar
Stokes, as the board's liaison
to. the 10-County Coalition
for the Betterment of Lake
Okeechobee and its Estuaries,
asked the commissioners to
sign on to the coalition's
opposition of House Bill 957.
According to Florida
House analysis, the bill's stat-
ed intention is to coordinate
o state and federal environmen-
tal-permitting regulations to
eliminate duplication of over-
lapping regulations for
Florida wetlands and U.S.
waters.
Stokes said the bill, driven
by coastal counties, would
restrict Highlands County to
enforcing state permitting
regulations, preventing it
from establishing tougher
requirements.
"As it is now, the county
can put regulations in that go
beyond what the state
requires," Stokes said in a
phone interview, explaining
that while the county isn't
tougher than the state in envi-
ronmental permitting, it's not
San option he wants to relin-
quish .--- --.

Wolff, who served from 1929-
1933.
Mann said photos of previ-
ous sheriffs were obtained
from the Florida Sheriffs
Association, but the agency
does not have photos of
Hancock or Wolff, either.
If anyone has a photo of
Hancock or Wolff, contact
Mann at 402-7213, or Lisa
Osha at 402-7374.
The office wants to borrow
the photos just long enough to
get them copied; the originals
will be returned to the rightful
owners.

Heartland Riders to host AMA national convention in October


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Lora Todd is
excited about the local
Heartland Riders Association
and the national convention it
will host Oct. 5-7 as an
American Motorcycle
Association-sanctioned event.
"We were one of only five
cities in the country consid-
ered for this and it's quite an
honor," Todd.said.
The Heartland Riders
Association has 350 mem-
bers. For $20 annually, mem-
bers receive a T-shirt and a
membership card. There's
also a monthly newsletter of
information and area events,
like this October's Run for the
Heartland. The first year the
event drew 8,000, the second
year attracted 15,000 and, in
the third year, 35,000 attend-
ed.
"This year, combined with
the AMA, it should be an
extravaganza," Todd said.,
Today, the AMA has
280,000 members. It was
founded in 1924 to pursue,
protect and promote the inter-


ests of motorcycle enthusi-
asts. They focus on rights, rid-
ing and racing through its
government relations work,
by sanctioning road and off-
road riding activities and
overseeing professional and
amateur racing. The AMA
headquarters is in
Pickerington, Ohio, which is
also home to the Motorcycle
Hall of Fame Museum.
In addition to generating
income for local hotels,
restaurants and businesses,
the convention will feature
workshops for motorcycle
enthusiasts, plus a seminar on
risk management, with the
AMA providing low-cost
insurance. One hundred ven-
dors from different venues
will be represented.
American Bikers Aiming
Toward Education (ABATE)
will sponsor a 114-mile poker
run, which goes through
Highlands, Polk and Hardee
counties. It's a scenic route
through Highlands Hammock,
past the caladium fields and
the numerous lakes from
Avon Park to Lake Placid.


Todd has worked in real
estate for 20 years, marketing
homes, her company and her-
self. She always enjoyed
fundraising, so it seemed nat-
ural when her husband volun-
teered her to be the marketing
director for the Heartland
Riders a year ago.
"I ride in as. many events as
I can, but as a member of the
board, I often am busy with
behind-the-scenes work. I
have a Suzuki Cruiser and
ride it to work. I love it. I
went to a three-day class last
June in Lake Wales. It was a
great how-to course and I
passed and got my endorse-
ment.
"I enjoy riding with my
husband and the group. It's a
feeling of freedom to be out in
the fresh air and sunshine. We
ride together and then stop
and have lunch," Todd said.
The Heartland Riders
Association is a non-profit
organization. Last year, it
donated, $2,000 to Horses for
Handicapped. Other recipi-
ents have been Lake Placid
youth sports, the Nick Sottile

Scholarship Fund and Habitat
for Humanity.
"It's a group effort with
great people. We believe in
helping local charities and
giving back to our communi-
ty," Todd said.
Anyone can join Heartland
Riders Association, whether


they want to ride or not. They
meet the second Monday of
each month at 6 p.m. at the
Sebring Chamber of
, Commerce Welcome Center.

involved with the October
event, call Lora Todd at 414-

Voters group plans to kick it up a notch


Ivory Club to change
.name to Highlands
County Voters League
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING For the past
two years, citizens have been
attending meetings of a group
called the Ivory Club.
This Thursday evening, all
of those who have attended
meetings in the past or are
interested in the way the
county is run are being asked
to turn out at Homers
Restaurant for a group session
to mark a new. beginning for
the group.
Organized out of a number
of political volunteers who
wanted to stay active in the
community, the group has had
a steady stream of elected
officials and community lead-
ers who have addressed the
hottest topics of the day.
"When the property values
were going through the roof,
we had Highlands County
Property Appraiser Raymond
McIntyre to explain why.
When Highlands County was
considering whether or not to
implement impact fees, we
had Polk County
Commissioner Paul Senft to
talk about how they did it
there.
"When there was some-
thing people needed to know
about, we had somebody in
who could explain it and
answer questions," said Steve
Roberts, who is the chairman
o? the organization.
Now, Roberts said, the
group is going to "kick it up a
notch.".
That will begin with a name
change.
-"We are changing our name
to the Highlands County
Voters League because it bet-
ter reflects who we are,"
Roberts said.
Calling it a new beginning,
Roberts said while the group


is not a political organization
per se, the members are very
much interested and involved
in politics.
The intent will be to contin-
ue to bring information to cit-
izens on the topics of the day,
with a new emphasis on how
local entities and constitution-
al officers are spending the
tax dollars they collect.
"Whether you are a
Democrat, .Republican,
American Party or Libertarian
we want to hear your voice,"
said Roberts.
While recognizing that the
group has drawn conserva-
tives in the past, Roberts re-
emphasized that the
Highlands County Voters
League meetings were are not
geared to any one political
party or philosophy. -


"We always have tried to
inform the people and get
their questions answered," he
said.
At the meetings, speakers
are asked to give a short open-
ing presentation on the topic
at hand, then the floor is
opened to questions from the
audience.
The idea of informational
guests with a format of ques-
tions and answers would not
change, Roberts assured.
What now will happen will be
a consensus vote that will be
forwarded to the appropriate
elected officials as well as the
media to serve as a watermark
for citizen reaction to differ-
ent ideas or situations.
"We're not a watchdog
group, but we will be watch-,..
ing," Roberts said. :

He took time at Tuesday's
Highlands County
Commission meeting to invite
commissioners, promising not
to ask them questions from
the audience.
"We don't want there to be
any questions about violations
of the sunshine law," he said.
"But I would like you to come
and hear what people have 'to
say."
Roberts again made a plea
for a large audience at the
upcoming Thursday evening
session to re-launch the
organization.
It will be held Thursday at
the Homers Restaurant in the
Sebring Square Shopping
Complex.
An optional dinner will be
held at 5 p.m. with the meet-
ing to be held at 6 p.m.

Paso Fino horses to put on show


during Sebring Relay for Life


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Paso Fino horses, a
"dancing" breed often called the most exciting
breed of horses in the world, will give a
demonstration at the American Cancer
Society's Relay for Life in Sebring on April
28.
The show will be at 7 p.m. in the Highlands
County Fairgrounds livestock pavilion.
The history of the Paso Fino horse began in
Spain where the chance mix of breeds (Barb,
Andalusian and Spanish Jennet) sparked the
seed that became one of the world's finest rid-
ing horses.
This unique horse has been called
"America's 500-year-old new breed." The
Paso Fino horse was virtually unknown in the
United States until the late 1940s, but it has
been bred in Latin America since the days of
,the conquistadors.
On Columbus' second voyage to the New
World, he transported the ancestors of the first
Paso Fino horses to Santo Domingo (now the


Dominican Republic).
Used as the foundation stock for remount
stations of the conquistadors, these horses
came to be known as Los Caballos de Paso
Fino, which translates to "the horse with the
fine step."
The unique gait of the Paso Fino is per-
formed at three speeds. The classic fino is
characterized by rapid footfall and slow for-
ward motion. It is the classic show ring gait
and is extraordinary to watch as the horses'
feet fly in a thunder of hooves, however it
almost appears that they are dancing in place.
The paso corto is the medium speed of the
gait. In its relaxed form, the corto is an ideal
trail and pleasure-type gait for recreational
riders. A well conditioned Paso Fino can trav-
el at the corto for hours.
The paso largo is an even more extended
version of the same footfall. It is the speed
form of the gait. A horse at the largo can cover
ground at a breath-taking speed while still pro-
viding a secure and balanced seat for the rider.

WORRY
Continued from 1A
o'clock, then 'the student center is at three. I
went to leave the building to go to a class, but
was told I couldn't leave.
"When I asked why, I was told there had
been a shooting. After that, I pulled out my
computer, and followed events from there."
Mullins said that a lot of people are aggra-
vated that the administration didn't get the
word out to students and faculty quicker.
"It might not have prevented the attack,"
she said, "but maybe people could have been
better prepared."
She also said people were frustrated with
the slow release of the victims names.
But she called back a few hours later to
make sure there had been no misunderstanding
regarding her faith in the school.
-. "Per'onall\, I am not concerned for my own
- safety," she said. "This could ha\e happened
anywhere just think of the attack on the
Amish School. Nobody should be afraid to
think about attending this college."
News-Sun publisher Chip Wigginton -
who hails from Virginia and whose eldest
daughter graduated from Virginia Tech and
whose middle daughter attended for two years
before transferring out also knows the
school well. His eldest daughter had lived in
West Ambler Johnston Hall, the dormitory
where the initial shooting occurred.
His daughters have friends still attending
the school.
He .said the kind of loyalty expressed by
Mullins, and which he'd heard from many oth-
ers,' was the one bright spot in an otherwise
dismal story.
Sebring High School football coach Jared
Hamlin attended Virginia Tech and played
football for the Hokies in the 1990s.
"It is one of the most beautiful places I've
been in my life," Hamlin said. "It's a true col-
lege town and a tight-knit community. It's
hard to describe. The people are wonderful
and kind. Everyone wave's a greeting not
as a gesture, they really mean it."
Like Hamlin, Wigginton spoke warmly of
Virginia Tech.
"We were moved by the beauty of the


RIGHTS
Continued from 1A
Edwards eventually learned
.of J.J.'s whereabouts via a
newspaper article in 2004 that
depicted foster care abuses on
two children who fit the
description of J.J. and a half-
sister the 10-year-old sister
was allegedly starved to 29
pounds.
* The foster parents depicted
in the story, Lori and Tommy
Allain, were friends of J.J.'s
mother Sonya, Edwards said.
They eventually were pros-
ecuted, Gossett said, but
Edwards faced an uphill bat-
tle against a secretive state
agency with no external over-
sight.
"The cases are confiden-
tial," Gossett said, alleging
DCF violations extend
beyond the U.S. Constitution.
"The cases perpetuate and the
public is not made aware of it.
It's not just constitutional
rights, they're violating basic
human rights. It's the stuff the
United States complains
about in Third World coun-
tries and it's happening right
here in Florida."


MC'
A pair of Virginia Tech students sign a
makeshift memorial Tuesday.


administration and how it treated people," he
said, "as well as the beauty of the physical set-
ting.
"Blacksburg surrounds the campus. The,
school is its largest employer, it's the primary,
reason people live there
"The area has a sense of calm about it.
(Blacksburg) is one of the few towns I've felt
totally safe in."
It was the kind of place, he added, where
people didn't feel the need to lock their doors.
Both Wigginton and Hamlin got news of the
shooting through telephones calls from friends
early in the day, and stayed glued to the tele-
vision after. Wigginton described being unable
to contact the school because its cell phone
and Internet capacity were overrun.
It was a terrible time for him and his family
as one friend attending the university had con-
tacted them soon after the first shooting to say
she was fine, but they didn't hear from her
again until late on Tuesday.
Hamlin said it's hard to believe such a
tragedy could happen at Virginia Tech.
"You see it on TV and know that it hap-
pened, but you can't believe," he said. "It's so
hard to grasp."
Hamlin's soft southern drawl then dropped
off in silence.
"It is another home to me I used to cut
through Norris Hall every third day to get to
the parking lot," he said after a moment.
"My wife is from there. We still have fami-
ly and friends there. It blows my mind."


In defending itself, DCF
said it couldn't locate
Edwards.
"It did not try to contact
any other governmental agen-
cies and did not check county
public records because,
according to the department's
witnesses, 'It would have
been a waste of time,'" the
appeals court said in its deci-
sion.
But, the Department of
Revenue (to which Edwards,
had been making payments)
was located in the same build-
ing as DCF.
"Yet, incredibly, no one
from (DCF) ever consulted
this agency," the court said in
its opinion, noting that the
revenue department sent a let-
ter to suspend the child sup-
port payments to a valid
address for Edwards.
In a separate, concurring
opinion, another judge said,
"Due process of law should
never be disregarded in favor
of expediency, especially
when fundamental rights are
at stake."
Ironically, Edwards was
listed as a DCF witness in an
unrelated elder abuse case
that was pending in the court


system.
Gossett, who took the case
pro bono, said his strategy
was to compare Edwards' sit-
uation to mortgage holders
who face foreclosure.
"They have to hand you the
papers," he said. "You're enti-
tled to be notified of the case
against you and that some-
body is trying to take away
your rights."
Gov. Charlie Crist has hired
former Attorney General Bob
Butterworth to fix DCF.
On Tuesday, the new DCF
secretary called Gossett and
spoke with Edwards.
"He agreed the department
probably should have con-
fessed their errors," Gossett
said. "Heads should be
rolling."
Gossett and Edwards said
Butterworth's apology was
sincere.
Because J.J. is still in state
custody, Edwards said he
doesn't know if or when he'll
be reunited with his son, who
turns 18 in November.
"I love you and I missed
you," Edwards said, when
asked what he would say first
to J.J. "I've never given up on
you."


SFCC
Continued from 1A
director of SFCC's Public
Service Academy. The largely
advisory board is charged
with coming up with ideas
and keeping the administra-
tion aware of safety concerns
that could arise.
They review any and all
criminal and accident situa-
tions. To date, most of the
activity has been focused on
such things as traffic prob-
lems and weather-related sce-
narios.
Both the emergency
response team and the safety
committee have meetings
ars scheduled within the next
week or so and despite the
fact that the sessions had been
set for pre-hurricane pre-
paredness, Little said the
Virginia Tech situation would
be discussed and efforts
would be made to ensure that
such incidents would have an
applicable protocol.
One of the problems is that
like Virginia Tech, the SFCC
campus is both sprawling and
open. Unlike Virginia Tech,
however, SFCC is spread over
three counties with five dif-
ferent locations.
"We have campuses here in
Highlands and in Hardee and
DeSoto counties. Plus there is
a campus in Lake Placid and
there's the Crews Center and
the Hotel Jacaranda we run in
t Avon Park," he said.
In all instances, Little said,
the college defers law
enforcement to the respective
police agency that covers
each of the locations whether
it be a sheriff's office or
police department.
Little called the idea of
communicating a single
announcement to the entire
T photo student body on any one day

"very challenging" despite
the fact that all of SFCC's stu-
dents are commuters and a
greater percentage do use e-
mail to stay in touch with
both the administration and
teachers.
"We don't have. a central-
ized program that works for
every situation, but in many
of our classes teachers use e-
mail to notify students of
homework, assignments or
class cancellation. They com-
municate back and forth on a
regular basis, so there are a
lot of classes that could be
handled that way," Little said.
Students also are asked to
listen to WWOJ 99.1 FM and
Lite 105.7 FM in Sebring in
case of an emergency situa-
tion. He said that method was
extremely helpful during the


hurricanes in 2004 when the
weather interrupted the opera-
tion of the school and normal
paths of communication.
"We also have our electron-
ic reader board out in front of
the school that we could use
to send a message out," he
said.
Little said it would be diffi-
cult for any college, universi-
ty or any such institution to
prepare for the kind of shoot-
ing incident that has racked
Virginia Tech. But in this
post-9/11, post-Columbine
world, schools have a duty to
look at things in a different
way and be prepared to react.
"This could have happened
at a mall, on a crowded street,
this really could have hap-
pened anywhere but it hap-
pened on a campus," he said.

Alan Jay among first 'Dottie's Donors' to local division of American Red Cross


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Local businessman
and philanthropist Alan Jay
Wildstein has signed on to become
one of the first "Dottie's Donors"
supporting the local American Red
Cross in Highlands County.
His $1,000 donation is just the
start of what.Director Art Harriman

a Red Cross authorized health and
safety class provider in Highlands

with initial donations and pledges to
donate more in the near future.
"Dottie's Donors" are businesses
and individuals who pledge (starting
at $125 per quarter) to support
Highlands County Red Cross opera-
tions. The donations honor Dottie
Pope, a member of the Red Cross for
many years, who served as both day-

Services volunteer until 2004, when

"Dottie was one of the people who
were the lifeblood of our volunteer
force," said Harriman. "It's fitting
that she be memorialized by a pro-
gram dedicated to the long-term sur-
vival of the Red Cross in Highlands
County."
The donor program also coincides
with the 90th anniversary of the
original charter in 1917 for a Red
Cross chapter in Highlands County.
The timing couldn't be better,
Harriman said.
"After I[he 2'004 hurricjnes. Red


Cross was at the top of peoples'
minds and support for both our oper-
ation here and nationally was
strong," Harriman said. "The combi-
nation of the 2005 weather disasters
like Hurricane Katrina and a very
quiet 2006 season changed that.
People supported national efforts in
the Gulf Coast very well, but locally
we dropped off many radar screens."
Over the last year, donations to

almost by half. Highlands County-s

has had a very busy season of home
fires and wildfires, supporting both
the victims and emergency person-

Please help support your local Red
Cross by volunteering time, energy,
and funds to help provide for people
in your community who are victims
of large natural disasters or small
single-family ones, like home fires.

the Red Cross can help you.

A country dog's lai


-* It has always been inter-

can change for a person. It
-_. seems as if we all can be
walking down the roadway of
S life when something drastic
may happen when we least
expect it. This past weekend
while on the way to see my
brother at another college,
that very thing occurred.
I have a tendency to stop .
-- at crashes to help provide
-- *assistance when no medical
staff is available. So when I
saw a car accident, we imme-
diately pulled over. As I was
preparing my gear, I never
could have guessed what we
may have come across.
Although I would rather
not describe the experience
S in great detail, I will say it
was the worst car accident I
have ever seen. The roadway
was shut off as four separate
helicopters were flown in to
I life bring additional care for the

people were in serious condi-

tion.
It was a graphic image for
my entire family and me
about the importance of
wearing a seat belt. Although
accidents do occur, seat belts
can help restrain the passen-
gers inside of the car. This
could honestly be the differ-
ence between whether you
may survive the car accident
or not. It also helps to pre-
vent the passengers from
being ejected from the vehi-
cle in a car accident.
As you and I both know,


we live in a country that is
filled with freedom of choic-
es. We can choose between
pretty much anything, rang-
ing from what we will eat for
dinner to what entertainment
we would like to have.
However, the wearing of a
seat belt should not be a
decision that we must side-
step around every time we
get into the car. It is just a
matter of safety, of choosing
safety.
After researching this a bit
more, the statistics were
quite alarming concerning
those who did not choose to
wear their seat belt. It has
been found that those who
did not wear their seat belts
are 10 times more likely to
die in a car accident com-
pared to those who wear their
belts, and the medical bills of
an unbuckled driver in a car
accident are actually 50 per-
cent higher than one who was
wearing their seat belt.
Also, a child not restrained


in just a 30 mph crash is the
equivalent of the child falling
from a three-story building,
according to
floridadrivers.com.
In the state of Florida, all
front-seat passengers as well
as the driver must be buckled
up, regardless of their age.
All children under the age of
16 must been buckled up or
in the proper child restraints,
depending upon their age.
Floridadrivers.com also said
that Florida's seat belt usage,
with this current law, is only
59 percent.
This weekend was just a
graphic reminder for me on
not only the shortness of life,
but also the importance of
wearing a seat belt. Just go
ahead and choose to click it.
What do you have to lose?

Country dogs tend to live a
little closer to their wild
sides than city dogs. Most
city dogs have schedules;
maybe grooming at 10,
behavior class at noon, a
walk at 3:30 and dinner at 6.
It's a much more civilized
existence, but country dogs,
like country people, live a bit
more relaxed lifestyle.
Our dogs have community
time on the front porch from
7 or so in the evening to 7 in
the morning they know
that at some point in this
time frame they will be fed.
After dinner we hear them

thump the floorboards as
they scratch the errant flea,
and get up and move from
one spot to the other looking
for the ideal place to sleep
the dark away.
.They have a continental
breakfast the next morning,
followed by a few hours of
mindless wandering around
the farm, which leads up to
the afternoon nap, dinner-
time, and then the cycle
repeats itself the next day.
It's a laid-back life no
two ways about it.
It is during their evening
meal that we get some idea
of what they've been up to
during the afternoon.
Pete usually drags home
some disgusting thing he's
spent the afternoon gnawing
on. Killer limps up to the
porch muddy and grimy from
rolling in the muck at the
edge of the pond. His son,
the 4-month-old pup we kept
out of Mooch's litter, will
bounce from the back pasture
all out of breath where I sus-
pect he's been chasing wild
chickens, or ambushing the
cats when they least expect
it.

Unfortunately, petting any
one of them at this time of
day is generally a less than
appealing prospect.
Yesterday evening Jillian
and I were sitting out front
when all three dogs romped
onto the porch one after the
other.
"Well, there they are," I
said.
"Finally," Jill replied.
"You gonna feed 'em?" I
asked, and yawned.
"Why do I have to feed
'em?"
"You don't have to feed
'em. I just asked if you were
gonna feed 'em."
"Yeah, I'll feed 'em."
Since the task was voluntary,
she agreed to perform it ...
it's another one of those
weird things that my kids do.
The dogs watched this
exchange like avid sports
fans watch a tennis match. It
was then that Pete decided he
was in the mood for a scratch
and ambled up to Jill. Her
reaction was startling.
"Oh, Loooooord! What is
that?" She cried, and wrin-
kled her nose.

Volunteers always

needed at museum
Editor:
As a volunteer docent
(guide) at the Civilian
Conservation Corps Museum,
Highlands Hammock State
Park here in Sebring, I thor-
oughly enjoy the interaction
with the diverse cross section
of visitors. We see people
from all! over the world,
young and old alike, some of
whom were in the C.C.C. or
had relatives or friends that
were. The CCC was an inno-
vative program devised by
President Franklin Delano
Roosevelt in 1933 to employ
and teach single young (18-
25) men a useful occupation.
They were taught carpen-
try, masonry, firefighting,
landscaping 'and so much
more.
These men helped establish
over 800 state parks. They,
planted over three billion
trees during the nine years
that the program was in
effect.
They strung wire for pow-
der and phone lines. They
built flood control systems
(dams and drainage).
They accomplished won-
ders in their time; many of
which exist to this day! I have
talked to several men who
spent time in the program, all
of whom said that it was a
positive influence on their
lives (and vicariously for me).
I enjoy the time that I spend
as a volunteer. The legacy is
all around us today.
If any of you readers has a
little volunteer time to spend,

School should

have handled child
Editor:
I feel called to add my
voice to those of all the
thoughtful and sincere people
who live in your part of the
country who, 1 am sure, have
objected to the arrest and
handcuffing of a 6-year-old in
nearby Avon Park.
That the school district
chose to call the police was
clearly a mistake. That the
police reacted as they did
compounded the error.
There is no way in'which
the community can ever undo
the damage done to a young
child by an incident such as
this.
If it is true that Chief
(Frank) Mercurio told a New
York Times columnist that an
unarmed. 6-year-old "can
inflict injury to you just as
much as any other person"
there it is clear that he is lack-
ing in judgment.

Privatizing is the corporate takeover, showing its downside


When the concept of priva-
tizing first surfaced on the
political landscape it seemed
like a good idea whose time
had come. Clearly, to save
extensive taxpayers funds in
the performance of a govern-
mental function seemed like a
good idea. Where was the
downside ?
Unfortunately, the down-
side is now screamingly
apparent and is in the process
of taking huge, destructive
bites out of good government.
It has become a solution in
search of a problem, where in

"Why?" Jill demanded.
"Well, it's like a perfume

"Au de carcass?" She
asked, pinching her nose
shut.
"Something like that."
"How could he possibly
think that smells good? His
nose is stronger than ours,
you'd think he would stay as
far away from nasty smells
as he could."

require. Rarely, if ever,
is there any considera-
tion for providing a


valid mechanism to determine
if real savings have been
achieved nor any continuing
examination or oversight to
determine whether the public
interest is being better served
since this would require a
continuing question as to
whether the original decision
to privatize was a correct one.
What, a continuing respon-
sibility for a political deci-
sion? What a frightening, rad-
ical idea that is. Hold politi-
cians responsible for their
decisions ?
What is actually happening
is that at all levels of govern-
ment, America is for sale.
Counties have sold the
responsibility to operate its
jails to large corporations.
The contention that this will
save tax dollars is pure smoke
and mirrors.
We now have large execu-
tive salaries, as well as profit
for the stockholders added to
the actual cost of running a
jail. Hiring less qualified per-
sonnel at lower salaries, creat-
ing some risks, is part of the
formula. Putting the conduct
of management beyond the
reach of the elected officials
and the public is part of the
price.;
Another part of the price is
that in the event something
goes wrong, the county is not
off the hook. ...

et in 2003 appropriated $132

tracts.
A careful look at privatiz-
ing leads to the conclusion
that what we are seeing is the
outsourcing of critical gov-
ernmental functions. On occa-
sion, the actual transfer of
governmental function is pre-
sented as a mere contract for
services, rather than an out-
right transfer of responsibili-
ty. The recent problems that
have surfaced with respect to
the acquisition of "new genra-
tion" voting machines is a
good example where the
process of recording and com-
piling the voting records is
claimed to be a "proprietary
secret," a black box concept
depriving the voters of the
ability to audit and verify the
correctness of reported results
and without any paper trail in
effect lets the contractor con-
trol the outcome of an elec-
tion. ...
Privatization has become
an aggressive industry. No
longer content to be a dor-
mant availability to assist
government, Dick Army, a
former Republican workhorse
in the House, presents it as
part of a conservative battle
between "Free Market" vs.
the corrupt, ever expanding
big government. Using seduc-
tive terms such as "streamlin-
ing," well funded foundations
like the Reason Foundation
have sprung up to promote the
new enlightenment, let corpo-
rations, not elected govern-
ment run the country. ...

etest, and most insidious

examples of runaway privati-
zation was the virtual gutting
of the U.S. Army's Quarter-
master Corps. Although that
entity still exists on paper, an
examination of the incredible
number of contractors in Iraq
performing their function
staggers the imagination, par-
ticularly as to have costs and
questional procurement
methods.
Not adverse to helping a
political friend, the current
administration has let multi-
billion dollar contracts to
such entities as Hallibur-ton,
without the benefit of obtain-
ing competitive bids, nor with
any great specificity as to
mission. Here is a bucket of
money, do good. Of course
Halliburton turns around and
sub contracts most of the
work out, some to subsidiary
companies, owned and con-
trolled by themselves but pro-
vide a "cut out" so they can
take an additional profit. They
operate the food services,
cafeteria style, transportation,
logistics, communications,
protection contractors, all
receiving salaries for per-
forming services formerly by
the military. Taxpayer sav-
ings? It is to laugh.
The best answer is to elect
officials who are willing to
perform a difficult job and not
"contract out" for a quick fix.

Holding up your head can


be a pain in the neck


Your neck has a
hard job holding
up your head.
Leaning into your '
computer or hunch-
ing over your work-
bench just makes
its job more diffi-
cult.
Poor posture cer-
tainly contributes to Let.
neck pain. The Phy
design of your neck
also makes it vul- Ren
nerable, since all
the interconnected structures
that give your neck its
incredible range of motion
are subject to wear-and-tear
damage of arthritis and the
overstretchingg" of whiplash.
Your neck contains bones,
joints, tendons, ligaments,
muscles and nerves, any of
which can hurt. Neck pain
also may come from regions
near your neck, such as your
jaw, head and/or shoulders.
Conversely, problems in your
neck can make other parts of.
your body hurt, such as your
upper back, shoulders or
arms. If your nerves are
involved, you may also feel
numbness, tingling or weak-
ness in your arms or legs.
Your neck pain could be
caused by:
Muscle strains. Overuse,
such as too many hours,
hunched over a steering
wheel or computer, often
triggers muscle strains. Neck
muscles, particularly those in
the back of your neck,
become fatigued and eventu-
ally strained. When you over-
use your neck muscles
repeatedly, chronic pain can
develop. Even such minor
things as reading in bed or
gritting your teeth can strain
your neck muscles.
Arthritis. Just like all
the other joints in'your body,
your neck joints tend to dete-
- riorate with age.
Disk disorders. As you
age, the cushioning disks
between your vertebrae
become dry, narrowing the
spaces in your spinal column


s
s
e


where the nerves
come out. The disks
in your neck can
also herniate. This
means the inner
gelatinous material
of the disk pro-
trudes through the
S disk's outer lining
Get of ligaments.
Get Nearby nerves can
ical be irritated.
Other tissues and
Smith bony growths
(spinal stenosis)
also can press on your nerves
as they exit your spinal cord,
causing pain, tingling and/or
weakness.
0) Injury. Rear-end colli-
sions often result in whiplash
injuries, which occur when
the head is jerked forward
and back, stretching the soft
tissues of the neck beyond
their limits.
See your physician if the
following signs and symp-
toms occur in conjunction
with neck pain:
Persistent pain that does
not let up.
Severe pain from an
injury. After a head or neck
trauma such as whiplash or a
blow to your head, see your
physician immediately.
Severe pain/headache might
indicate a fracture or an
injury to a ligament.
Shooting pain. Pain
radiating to your shoulder,
through your shoulder blades
or down your arm, or numb-
ness/tingling in your fingers,
may indicate nerve irritation.
Because serious problems
may occur after continued
nerve irritation you should
consult with a physician.
Loss of strength.
Weakness in an arm or leg,
walking with a stiff leg or
shuffling your feet indicates
the need for immediate eval-
uation.
Change in bowel or
bladder habits. Any signifi-
cant change, especially a sud-
den onset of incontinence,
could indicate a neurological
problem.

Your physician will often
be able to diagnose the'cause
of your neck pain and recom-
mend treatment just by ask-
ing questions about the type,
location and onset of your
pain. In less clear-cut cases
your physician may order X-
rays, MRI, CT-scan, EMG
,and/or a myelogram.
For pain that does not get
better with simple home-care
measures as ice or heat, over-
the-counter medication and
rest, your physician may pre-
scribe stronger pain medica-
tion and physical therapy. A
course of physical therapy
may include hot packs or ice
with electrical stimulation to
reduce pain, inflammation
and muscle spasms, ultra-
sound to reduce inflammation
and tightness, manual soft
tissue and gentle joint mobi-
lization to increase range of
motion, traction to reduce
nerve compression, strength-
ening exercises and postural
exercises.
Most neck pain in aging .
adults is associated with poor
posture. The goal is to keep
your head. centered over your
spine so gravity works with
your neck instead of against
it. Some simple changes in
your daily routine may help:

Center) will host a health fair at

She said a designated contact

Captains to telephone resi-
dents about suspicious behav-
ior. Crime Watch is a means to
notify the Sheriffs department

gram to approach any one sus-
picious of criminal activity.
Being alert, confident and

the best defense. Help prevent
crime by keeping your house
and car doors locked. She also
talked about reverse 911 when

vision of a missing person.

Thief (CAT) and has stickers

Mall. If the vehicle is seen


between 1 and 5 a.m., author-
ities will stop the car to verify
it is not stolen. She alerted
residents of a scam to collect
funds for the sheriffs depart-
ment. If you get a phone call
that sounds too good to be
true, expresses secrecy and
urgency hang up. Never give
charge card or bank numbers
out if you don't initiate the
call.
Members expressed con-
cern about ATV's, speeding,
parking issues, especially on

Holiday doesn't stump TOPS 632


SEBRING The meeting
of TOPS FL 632 was called to
order at 3:23 p.m. by leader
Judy O'Boyle and the salute
to the flag was recited. Then
Keeping Off Pounds Sensibly
and Taking Off Pounds
Sensibly pledges were said.
Roll call was given by
Karen Goodwin and there
were some good losses this
week, which is a great accom-
plishment after a holiday
weekend. Best loser of the
week was Betty Kerpan.
There were 28 members pres-
ent and a visitor, Linda
Shafer, a leader for six years
of a club in Toledo, Ohio.
O'Boyle reported that dur-
ing the board meeting last
Thursday it was voted to try
changing the three "No-Nos"
of the week to three "Yes-
Yeses." This week the "Yes,
Yeses" are to fill in food for
thought diet sheets every day,
walk at least three times and
eat broccoli at least twice.
The secretary's report for
April 2 was read and
approved. Under old busi-
ness: eight of the members
went to the leadership confer-
ence in Arcadia Saturday. It
was an interesting and
informative meeting. The
speaker was TOPS 632's own
"King" James Butt. One of
the points he made during his
speech was that TOPS clubs
should make more of an effort
to get men involved.
O'Boyle said, building on
that suggestion, the open
house this fall will be geared
to attract men who want to
lose weight.
The board also decided that
there will be no garage sale
this year. The proceeds from
that sale paid for the
Christmas luncheon and it
was decided that each mem-
ber would pay for his/her own
lunch. Janet Allwood and
Janet Kelly are serving as the


Christmas Party Committee.
Greeters for the next year,
who will be responsible for
making visitors and prospec-
tive members welcome, are
Juanita Burdick, Ruth Snyder
and Nancy Lowe.
Allwood presented Patricia
Jacklitch with a small gift as a
reward for consistently turn-
ing in menu sheets.


Dorothy Van Howe has lost
for three straight weeks and,
if she loses next week, she
will take home the travel gift.
Jean Ottoway took a wrapper
off the mystery gift and it's
still a mystery. Shafer's name
was drawn to choose a gift
and she opened a "Cat" tea
pot. Officers voted to try a
"Recipe of the Week."


U otfo


spicy.


suggestions


Garnish macaroni salad with a dash
of paprika. Sprinkle cinnamon over an
ice cream sundae. Most dishes come
alive when a pinch of a spice or an
herb is added. Savor the zest with
these quick tips from Publix:


Keep small quantities of herbs and spices
near your cooking area. Store the rest in an
airtight container in your freezer.
If stored near heat, light, or where moisture
collects, flavor will be lost. Try to store your
spices in a cool, dark, dry place.
Ground spices and herbs fade in flavor
within a few months, while whole spices
and herbs take a year to fade.

Mixed bag at tennis tourneys


Sebring second as Booker takes boys title
By DANIEL HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne @newssun.com
AVON PARK The boys
District 9-2A tennis tourna-
ment finished its two-day run
Tuesday on the courts of
South Florida Community
College, with Sarasota
Booker taking team honors
e and advancing both their No.
1 singles and doubles to state
competition.
Florida high school tennis
has the winning team advanc-
ing to regional competition,
. .. with the winning No. 1 sin-
S ... gles and No. 1 doubles from
each district tournament
moving on to state.
S.. Sebring had its share of'
. .. winning on the day, although
S. not in the advancing matches,
and Avon Park had a near
'miss, but couldn't quite come
out on top.
Chris Pinson at No. 2 sin-
.F. gles reached the finals for
Sebring but didn't quite have
the gusto as he fell to
Booker's Cody Gusto, 0-6, 1-
6.
.Blue Streak Jake Broen, at
No. 3 singles, also reached
the final match, and stretched
it out to three sets, but came
up short against Emilio Lazo
of Booker, 6-4, 1-6, 3-6.
But there were wins for
Sepring at Nos. 4 and 5 sin-
gles, as Dan Ritter topped
Palmetto's Chase Gouse, 6-4,
6-2, and freshman Mike Reed
beat Hardee's Joseph Porter,
6-1, 6-4.
Avon Parks near miss came
at No. 2 doubles, with Jan
Guerrero and Alfonzo
Williams, Jr. taking on a pair
of DeSoto Bulldogs.
The DeSoto duo breezed in
the first set, a 6-0 win, but
Guerrero and Williams
pushed the second match to
its limit before falling 5-7.
"Booker just dominated
this tournament," Avon Park
head coach Lucky Dixon
said. "They tied for second
last year, but returned every-
one .
"We won it last year, but
we lost everyone to gradua-
tion, so this was a rebuilding
year for us."
The team totals for the
"._,: "~ -tournament had Booker with
13 points, Sebring with 10,
Braden River and Palmetto

Lady Devils take


girls championship


By DANIEL HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING The girls
half of the District 9-2A ten-
nis tournament at Sun 'N
Lake saw a first for the Lady
Red Devils of Avon Park, as
they advanced as a team to
regional competition and
qualified individuals for the
state tournament.
"I'm not sure, but as far as
I know, no Avon Park girls
tennis players have qualified
for state," head coach
Melinda Pollitt said. "And I
don't think a team has won
district and gone to region-
als either."
Their combination of
wins throughout the tourna-
ment, in addition to the
advancing girls, totaled up
to 12 points for Avon Park,
giving them the team trophy
and a reservation foi Tampa
Friday.
Tiffany Gregor didn't
advance at No. 1 singles, but
reached the finals before
falling to Sarasota Booker's
Carta Robinson, 3-6, 2-6.
Angline Carillo was
pushed to her limit at No. 2
singles, going three sets


with Booker's Trishtien
Brady, but stayed strong to
finish out a 6-7 (4-7), 7-5, 6-
0 win.
Lake Placid's Aleena
Muzaffar reached the finals
at No. 3 singles before
falling to Braden River's
Kristen Walley, 4-6, 2-6 and
Sebririg's Kelsie Johnson
made it all the way to the
No. 4 singles finale but fell,
3-6, 3-6 to Palmetto's
Kristina Whisnant.
Avon Park took care of
No. 2 doubles, with Mary
Rose Heston and Carillo
teaming up to top Palmetto
6-4,7-5.
And the big winner on the
day was the team of Bailey
Barben and Gregor, at No. 1
doubles, as. they took out
Booker's Brady and
Robinson, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4 to
mark their ticket for the
state tournament.
"It feels so great," three-
year varsity player Gregor
said. "I've been wanting to
make it to state every year,
and finally was, able to this
year."

Sports Movies

- Part Deaux

Continuing the discussion
of the best sports movies of
all time, I mentioned previ-
ously the misrepresentation
of boxing that the Rocky
movies were.
But Rocky's I-VI do get
credit for having actors who
were able to pull off the ath-
letic aspect of the roles con-
vincingly and that can't be
said for all sports movies.
Boxing does, however,
seem to have the best group-
ing of actors who look like
boxers in their roles.
Robert DeNiro in Raging
Bull (third on the list of top
sports movies), Hillary
Swank in Million Dollar
Baby (16th on the list) and
Russell Crowe in Cinderella
Man (42nd) all made their
combinations look effective
and didn't have to pull any
punches.
But the sport that is most
represented in the movies,
baseball ten show up in the
list and there, are quite a few
not even mentioned casting
has often proved to be, par-
don the pun, hit or fiss.
For every Kevin Costner,
who looks very natural when
he's swinging a bat (Bull
Durham, the No. 1 rated
sports movie), pitching from
the mound (For Love of the
Game, not even in the top
53) or just playing catch with
his father (Field of Dreams,
no. 19), there is a Freddie
Prinze, Jr. (Summer Catch,
thankfully, not on the list
either) where they have to
cut up the shots, edit away
from seeing his full motion
as often as. possible to hide
how unconvincing he is as a
left-handed hurler.
And-for every Tom Selleck
(Mr. Baseball, not on the
list) who looks every bit a
heavy hitting former major
league all-star playing in
Japan, there is Costner's Bull
Durham battery-mate, Tim
Robbins, looking as much
like a baseball pitcher as I

High School Softball


Avon Park handles pesky Hardee to advance to semifinals


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com,
AVON PARK "I swear, I think
they play just well enough to keep
my stomach upset."
Such were the words of Avon Park
head coach Mike Cobb after his
teams 8-3 win in the second round of
the District 10-4A softball tourna-
ment over visiting Hardee.
For while the score may have
made it seem like a somewhat
easy win, the game was a bit Avor
closer than, the score might
have indicated. |
The Lady Wildcats were Ha
the first- to scratch the score-
board, getting tp Red Devil
starter Ashton Shirey with a 1
run in the top of the first.
Chelsea Steedly led off the game
with a- shot to left for a single,
moved to second on a ground out
and could have walked home when
Dannie Heines blasted a triple to
deep center field.
Avon Park came right back to tie
it in its half of the first, with Julie
Lamb drawing a leadoff walk, took
second on Logan Palmer's sacrifice
bunt to third on Heather Barnes'

ground out and back to home plate
on a wild pitch.
Shirey found her groove after the
first, taking Hardee out in order in
the second, with two strikeouts, and
helping herself offensively by driv-
ing in Shantavia Conner with an RBI
single for a 2-1 lead.
The Devil defense also found a
groove in the third, as Barnes made
a diving catch of a pop-up and
Conner made a nice stab of a'.

rocket to third for a force play
to keep the one-run lead.
The lead was extended in
dee the bottom of the third, with
Lamb belting a triple to right-
center, Palmer knocking her
in with a ground out, Barnes
legging out a double, Missy
Lander knocking her in with a triple
to right and Brearnna Tate making it
5-1 with an RBI single.
After a scoreless Hardee fourth,
Avon Park looked on the verge of
blowing it open, but some baserun-
ning lapses and a sharp Wildcat
defense lessened the damage.
Shirey walked and gave way to
pinch runner Nicole Harris, who

DEVILS
Continued from ID
promptly stole second and
third while Kim White was
drawing a walk.
Lamb knocked Harris in,
but White was tossed out at
the pl;ite.
Pal er then hit a grounder
to shoe but Lamb, shortstop
Case) Johnson and the ball
all met ht lie same time, forc-
ing Lamb to be called out on
runner interference.
Barnes singled to put run-
ners at first and third, but a
line-bullet off the bat of
Lander was snared on a div-
ing catch by the Hardee sec-
ond-baseman for the third
out.
Hardee then got a run back
Amber Steedly knocked in
Johnson, who had walked,
btit the Devils escaped further
damage when Barnes made a
pinpoint cutoff throw to nail a
runner at home.
Avon Park added an
unearned run in the fifth and
Barnes batted Lamb in with a
single in the sixth, but things
got a little shaky in the
Hardee seventh.
Page Avery reached on an
infield hit and an ensuing
error on Chelsea Owens'
grounder put runners on the
corners with nobody out.
Owens was thrown but at
second on a steal attempt, or
else two runs would have
come in on Steedly's boom-
ing triple to left.
Shirey then retired the next
two hitters with no more
drama to seal the deal.
"We played well enough to
win tonight," Cobb said. "We
made some mistakes and they
(Hardee) made some nice
plays. We seem to play down
to the level of some of the
teams we're supposed to beat,
and then play much better
against the better teams."
Which was evidenced
when they blasted state-
ranked Braden River, 18-5,
recently which also comes
in handy as the Pirates will be
the Devils next foe.

Barben and Gregor will
join their teammates at the
team regionals on Friday at
Hillsborough Community
College in Tampa, but their
performance there is strictly
for team totals and won't
effect their state status but
the team now has the confi-

well.
"After today," Heston said.

NOTICE OF INTENT OF THE SCHOOL BOARD
OF HIGHLANDS COUNTY, FLORIDA TO CON-
SIDER ADOPTION SCHOOL DISTRICT JOB
DESCRIPTION FOR A BUS ATTENDANT AND
NOTICE OF POTENTIAL PUBLIC HEARING
NOTICE is hereby given that THE SCHOOL
BOARD OF HIGHLANDS COUNTY intends to
amend the job description for a Bus Attendant
at a special meeting of the Board on Tuesday,
May, 22, 2007, at 5:30 p.m. in the Board

look like the crown-prince of
Thailand.
Dennis Quaid (The
Rookie, no. 35) had to learn
to throw left-handed for his
baseball role, and he still
looked better as a pitcher
- than Prinze or Robbins did.
The original Major League
(32nd on the list) featured a
mix of the good and the bad.
Charlie Sheen was com-
; pletely convincing as a fire-
balling pitcher, Dennis
Haysbert (Pedro Cerrano and
the future president on 24)
certainly looked the part of
the slugging outfielder and
'1. Corbin Bernsen (L.A. Law)
was relatively passable as a
slap-hitting infielder.
photo But as great of an actor as

erens Tom Berenger might be, both
behind the plate as a catcher
t) and at the plate as a batter,
he looked as stiff, awkward
elly and uncomfortable as Mark
sa McGwire did at the Senate
is
hearing on steroids.
the As for other baseball
movies, Redford, despite
being about 62 years-old, did
look pretty natural as a base-
S ball player in The Natural
(no. 31), the ladies in A
1 League of Their Own (no.
34) all held their own and
most of the cast of Eight
Men Out (no. 25) looked
more natural trying to lose
the World Series than
Berenger did trying to get his
team there.
I haven't seen Bang the
Drum Slowly (no. 12) so I
can't comment on how
DeNiro pulled off being a
ballplayer, and the kids in
The Bad News Bears (no.
J J 10), all pretty much looked
S like kids their age playing
baseball, which is all over
the place.
The difference in the abili-
ty to cast for movies for
these two sports, baseball
and boxing, is pretty much
the same for the sports them-
selves.
You can take a good ath-

School District believes that the proposed rule
or amendment will have no effect on small
business. The School District believes that


lete and teach him how to
box,but you can't necessari-
ly take a great athlete and
teach him how to play base-
ball bringing up Jon Kruk's
great characterization of the
sport when he said, "I'm not
an athlete, I'm a baseball
player."
You can take an athletic
actor and make him look like
a boxer, but you can't take an
otherwise athletic actor and
make him look like a base-
ball player.
The same can be said of
the next two sports, and
sports movies, that I'll delve
into in my next column -
basketball and football.
