Rebuilding A Family


* Editor's note: Kevin and Ginger
Carlisle wanted to adopt children
from the Ukraine and after an oppor-
tunity to meet a brother and his sis-
ter, .they chose to keep searching for
the perfect fit in their family. This is
the second part of their story.

By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING A second appoint-
ment was scheduled for Kevin and
Ginger Carlisle and, after viewing
several profiles of siblings, they
chose another pair for consideration.
The children were also in different
orphanages, separated by a three-
hour drive. The oldest, they were
told, remembered her little brother;


but he was so young when their
mother's parental rights were
revoked that he had no recollection
of her.
"We looked at the pictures and we
knew they were it!" they recalled.
In spite of the difficulty of meeting
both of the children on the same day,
due to the distance between them and
the poor infrastructure which compli-
cated getting from one place to
another, they pulled it off.
Unsure of how they would be
received by either of the children,
they first went to 4-year-old Max's
orphanage in Odessa.
Upon seeing his them, Max made
a beeline for Ginger, threw his arms
around her yelling, 'Momma,'


grabbed her hand, and proceeded to,
show her around the orphanage.

Motive questioned
Still anxious about meeting Max's
sister, yet encouraged by his recep-
tiveness, they rode to 11-year-old
Tanya's orphanage. The motives for
their adoption of the little girl were
in question by the orphanage direc-
tor, two inspectors, a deputy and a
lawyer.
"The director indicated that this
child has been raised from very
young and they consider them (the
children) like their own," they
entered on their blog (carlislejourney.

Ridge Area Arc

celebrates 50

years in county

Luncheon at SFCC today will
mark golden anniversary
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
AVON PARK Ridge Area Arc part-
ners, board members, consumers and.
their families will celebrate the 50th
anniversary of the ARC in Highlands
County today.
Today, the Arc is the world's largest
grassroots organization of and for people
with intellectual and developmental dis-
abilities.
The local Ridge Area Arc is very
active in the community, providing area
consumers with group homes, adult day
training programs, supported living, sup-
ported employment, companion services
and personal care, just to name a few,
Executive Director Rhonda Beckman
said.
Activities for the 50th anniversary
luncheon at the South Florida
Community College gym will feature a
'Back to the '50s' theme, with the
American Antique Car Association
bringing cars for a parade, and music
and games from the same era.
The luncheon will honor the founder
of the Ridge Area Arc, Mary Ellen Ward,
and some of the lifetime donors.
Various awards will be, presented,
including a Volunteer of the Year, Arc
Hero, Community Partner and People
First Advocate awards, as well as five
SConsumer of the Year awards in different
categories.
The event comes on the heels of the
well-attended Arc of Florida
Convention, where Beckman not only
brought back ideas to implement locally,
but was also elected Vice President of
Membership and Unit development.
"There were 600 people in attendance;
it's one of the largest in recent years,"
she said. "We also had seven consumers
and three staff members that attended,
and one of our consumers, Mike Eldred,
won an award."
Called the Skeet and Delores Norley
award, it was created to recognize an
individual with a developmental disabil-
ity who has demonstrated successful par-
ticipation in the life of their community,
made significant 'progress in achieving
independent living, and who has
excelled as an advocate for other citizens
with developmental disabilities.
Eldred runs his own business, Mike's
Clean Sweep, and has assumed most of
the responsibilities of the business,
including recruiting new accounts and

AP fire assessment extended to institutional properties


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK It appears
the free ride is over for
churches and buildings owned
by not-for-profit groups when
it comes to the fire assessment
in Avon Park. However, if and
when they are included in
helping to pay for municipal
firefighters, they won't come
in on an equal footing with
the rest of the city.
Council members voted to
allow them to "phase in" to
the system by permitting the
properties to pay half the
going rate of assessment to
their buildings.
"If the Holiness Camp and
the First Baptist Church pay
their fire assessment, you'll
have half of what you're look-
ing to collect," councilman
George Hall said.
Hall said his calculations
showed the city would only
reap an additional $75,000 by
assessing all the so-called


Accidental


institutional at the current
rate.
Avon Park finance director
Renee Green said a new tax
roll for the current year would
be coming in later this week,
which would give city staff
members a better idea of the
financial situation for the
upcoming fiscal year.
Not all council members
were happy with the idea of
phasing-in churches and other
institutional properties.
Mayor Sharon Schuler point-
ed out that over the past years,
many of the. churches have
promised to pay something
but have not followed
through.
"I understand about this
'big bite,' but how many years
have we been sitting'up here,
every year saying they're
going to do their part?" she
asked. "And all these other
people are sitting out there
and have been paying their
assessment. I think everybody


'I think everybody should pay their

fair share.'

MAYOR SHARON SCHULER


information on the city, Green
said last year's collection
amounted to a little over half
of the fire department's oper-
ating budget.
"I think we're up to about
56 percent right now," she
said.
Still, that could change
with new numbers generated
by consultants of the
Government Services Group
prior to next year's budget.
"Who knows, the assess-
ment could go down. We'll
just have to wait and see what
the figures are," Green said.


should pay their fair share.
What is it? Do we feel that the
churches and non-profits
should not help us keep our
fire departments?"
Records show that in the
past, payments to help with
the fire services have been
made only by a couple of
individual churches -
although when first passed,
members of various churches
had pledged to take up Special
collections to help with
underwriting the municipal
service.
Councilman Doug Eason,
one of two members who'sat
on the council when the meas-
ure first -was passed, said he
had looked in the Bible and
found numerous passages that


said churches should be ren-
dering payments for the fire
protection service.
"The Lord loves a cheerful
giver," he said,
In the end, the vote to phase
in the payments was unani-
mous. Council members
reportedly will take it up
again when they get together
for a daylong budget session
Saturday.
Council members also
agreed that institutions who
could not afford to pay their
bill ih a single payment could
arrange to remit it to the city
in installments.
The Avon Park fire assess-
ment first was passed in
August 2000 following a con-
tentious public hearing at the


Avon Park Community
Center. In fact, it was the first
of only two times the city
council has moved their regu-
lar session outside their cham-
bers due to overwhelming
public interest.
During the course of the
Evening, better than.30 resi-
dents, pastors, church mem-
bers and businesspeople came
to lobby against the idea. A
representative of residents of
The Manors even threatened
there might be a class action
lawsuit against the city if the
fee were implemented.
Church officials charged
they would have to cut back
their services to the needy if
they were assessed for fire
protection.
When first enacted, council
decided to impose the assess-
ment only at the 50-percent
level, something that has
changed little over the past
half dozen years. However,

to avoid poisoning from them
is to move them out in the
open and away from the
house, Nichols said.
"I chain mine to a tree so it
doesn't walk off," he said. He
also emphasized using only
approved fuel containers that
are kept in well-ventilated,
open areas. A garage, howev-


er, does not count as a well-,
ventilated area, even if the
doors are open, Nichols
added. In fact, using them
under any kind of roof can be
dangerous.
"Don't use them under' a
roof overhang," he said, "so
even if it's a carport, move it
out from under the roof."
If you're not running a gen-


erator in a well-ventilated
area, "it increases the poten-
tial of carbon monoxide enter-
ing the house," Nichols said,
adding that. carbon monoxide
tends to seep in from the open
Windows when generators are
being used.
A major problem in pre-

homeowners are unaware of
how much of the deadly gas is
actually in their homes.

Ted Walker

Ted Walker was born in Miami on Nov. 17, 1943, and came full
circle dying there July 10, 2007. Moving to Sebring at the age of 4,
Walker graduated from Sebring High School and was the first to be
elected Student Council president of the newly opened South Florida
Junior College in Avon Park. As a teenager and young adult, he was
active in Boy Scouts and the Red Cross locally and taught First Aid
and swimming with Nita Haskins. Walker also worked construction
and helped to build both the Fountainhead Apartments and Publix
Shopping Plaza in Sebring.
In 1968, Walker married Vera Carson Morcheles, literally the girl
next door, shortly after being drafted in the U.S. Army to serve in
Vietnam. He felt his experience with the Red Cross helped save his
life there. Although he trained for heavy artillery and was scheduled
to be posted to a forward unit, when it was discovered he had Red
Cross certifications for life guarding, First Aid and swimming, he
was sent to a less hazardous post where his skills could be utilized.
Upon returning from Vietnam, Walker moved to Miami to become
an air traffic controller for the Federal Aviation Authority. As in every
other venue, Walker's natural ability caused others to look to him for
leadership and he served as shop steward for the controllers union
for several years until President Reagan initiated nationwide firing
of all controllers on strike.
During his junior college days, Walker had learned to make shells
at a Sebring fireworks company owned by Ed Kolisek. After helping
Kolisek shoot a show at Disney World, Walker got 'gunpowder in his
veins.' He assisted at countless other shows through the years,
looking for an opportunity to do this work that he loved full time.
Walker took advantage of Reagan's dismissal to start his fireworks
company, Add Fire, Inc.
Walker's' fireworks company credits included ,shooting the
Orange Bowl and the pyrotechnics in the movie 'The Bodyguard.'
Eventually Walker merged his company with his brother Litton's
fireworks business and the two shot fireworks from Connecticut to
Columbia, South America.
Walker was also a leader in community service, church and poli-
tics, and gave generously of his time serving as president of his
local Kiwanis, as deacon in his church and as mayor of Biscayne
Village.
He is survived by wife, Vera; daughter, Natalie Rosier of Fort
Lauderdale; mother, Elizabeth Walker of Sebring; brother, Litton of
Sebring; sister, Ann of Pennsylvania; one niece and four nephews.
Graveside services will be at Sebring's Pinecrest Cemetery at 9
a.m. Thursday, July 19, with military honors by V.F.W. Post 4300.
Arrangements are by Morris Funeral Chapel, Sebring. In lieu of flow-
ers, memorial contributions may be made to his church, the
Charismatic Episcopal Church of Resurrection, 6701 SW 25th St.,
Miramar, FL 33023.

Taser used to subdue aggressive ex-boyfriend TRI


HCSO uses Taser to
help keep injuries to
suspects, officers down

By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING- The
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office saw yet another suc-
cessful implementation of the
Taser this week, officials said.
Early Tuesday morning, a
man had to be subdued
because he wouldn't leave his
ex-girlfriend's home and was
aggressive to officers arriving
on scene, reports said.
After observing a man run-
ning around the house and
banging on a bedroom win-
dow off Del Rio Court in
Sebring, Officer Barbara Hair
of the HCSO drew her firearm


FAMILY
Continued from 1A
blogspot.com). "Kevin spoke
up and told them of Ginger's
background, with her father
coming from Lviv, and that
we wanted to keep Ukrainian
traditions alive with the chil-
dren and teach them the arts
of Ukrainian culture ..: The
director sat, with a stern face,
and seemed to be very anx-
ious. Another flurry of discus-
sions took place."

A father's promise
The tension finally broke
when the Carlisles showed
the group a picture of their
daughter.
"They stared at the picture
for a long time and passed it
around," their blog says.
"They were stunned' by her
beauty ... They seemed
moved. Kevin then spoke
(through a translator), 'As a
father who has lost his daugh-
ter, I understand your
anguish. I promise you this
child will be well cared for
and protected."'
One of the inspectors was
moved; to tears, t s' 'as
Ginger, and the others were
"mesmerized by the scene,"
they recalled.
Tanya was then summoned.
Kevin and Ginger asked-her a
.few questions and, given an
.opportunity to inquire of
them, she declined.
To their amazement, Tanya
was abruptly asked whether
or not she would consent to
being adopted by these people
she had only briefly met.
Stunned by her positive
response, they watched as she
was "summarily dismissed."
Being 11, Tanya could
choose whether or not to be
adopted..Had she said 'no,'


and told him to lay down and
-show her his hands.
The suspect, later identified
as 20-year-old Michael
Pearce of Sebring, instead ran
into bushes at the front of the
house and refused to listen,
according to reports, which
said Pearce returned to con-
front Hair, constantly coming
towards her.
After observing Pearce had
no weapons in his hands, Hair
holstered her gun and, with-
drew her Taser, continually
warning him to lie down or
she would "Tase him," the
report said. "As Pearce closed
in on the officer, "he made an
aggressive lunge towards me
with his hands at shoulder
height," Hair stated in the
report.
The Taser was used and


the Carlisles would have been
back to square one preview-
ing more profiles and choos-
ing another pair of siblings.


Pearce was later secured by
deputy Justin Clemmons, who
had arrived for backup.
"The Taser was able to sub-
due him in time for the back-
up officer to get there on
scene while Hair held him on
the ground ... Officer
Clemmons was able to come
.over with hand restraints," Lt.
Kenny Johnson said. "I know
for a fact once you get hit
with a Taser you are done as
far as the fight is concerned."
A thorough search of the
area turned up a black hand-
gun with 'one round in the
chamber and the hammer
locked back. Six more rounds
were in the magazine, reports
stated.
Without the Taser in use by
the department, injuries could
have been sustained by either


or both the officer and sus-
pect, Johnson said.
"Some officers still carry
pepper spray and the collapsi-
ble baton, those are the only
other options aside from the
Taser," he said. "Other than
that, hand-to-hand combat
skills. The risk of injury is a
lot greater when you go hand-
to-hand."
Neither the suspect or offi-
cers sustained any injuries.
"The stats I have heard
once we went to the Taser
from other municipalities ...
their injuries to officers have
reduced tremendously,"
Johnson said. "They don't
have to go to hand-to-hand
where either (the suspect or
officer) will get injured."


Bonding begins pa I
Now- that they had chosen DOu ..
their children, it would be ,e e -R
another 10 days before their e
court date followed by a 10-
day appeal period after the
judge's approval.
Kevin and Ginger visited
the children as often as possi-
ble during this time, while
tackling various legal require-
ments. Though their visits to
see Tanya. were limited
because of the remote loca-
tion of her orphanage, the
family-to-be began bonding.
It was only the second visit
with the Carlisles when Max
began calling Kevin "papa." Cote t

But, he was married with a
9-year-old daughter, Mariah.
Like other people juggling
family and work, he didn't
have the time, drive or com-
mitment to train.
"The idea was in my mind
and it just kind of sat,"
Morton said.
The Heartland Triathlon
wasn't the first time he flirted
with entering a tri.
When he was 15, he wrote
down two goals complete
the Boston Marathon and
Hawaii Ironman.
Fortunately; he did Boston
early in his marriage when he
was still running sub 16-
minute 5-kilometer races and
before he weighed 200
pounds. Hawaii hasn't hap-
pened.
Yet.
In September, his wife
asked for a divorce. He
moved out of the house and
into an apartment. A
Highlands County judge
granted the divorce in
February.
"Sitting here, by myself in
this small apartment, I wanted'
to get back in shape," Morton
said. "When I focus on some-
thing, I can usually accom-
plish it."
Though he always wanted
to do triathlons, Morton's
resources were limited. He
bought and rode his first bicy-
cle in 20 years. He found a
used Softride, a tri-specific
bike, for about $1,000 on
eBay. They can cost $2,500 or
more new.
He's only been riding the
bike about three months,
preparing for the Heartland
Triathlon. Before then, he
was finding his running stride
while shifting his focus away
from a failed marriage.
"It's taken my mind off of
that separation," Morton said.
"When you're running, it's
the old endorphins. And I like

in sparkly tops and eyeliner."
Who doesn't?
Not that you'd read a publi-
cation called San Diego, but it
listed Reinertsen as one of 50
people to watch in 2005.
The magazine was prophet-
ic, if not early, because
Reinertsen appeared on CBS'
"The Amazing Rac"e in 2006,
'when she teamed up with a


to be in nature. It really helps
to ease the pain."
Up until he tapered off for
Sunday's race, Morton was
running 25-30 miles each
week and riding about 100
miles.
Where it may have light-
ened his soul, his focused
exercising also lightened his
frame.
Morton weighs about 160
pounds. He runs 5 kilometers
in the 17-minute range and
believes he can conquer the
15-mile bike route in 45 min-
utes or better.
"It's instinctive how to ride
a bike," he said, of his hiatus.
"If only I can make it through
the swim. It's going to be
tough for me to make 400
yards without stopping."
He began his water training
last month, and will be satis-
fied with a 12-minute swim.
Where Morton turned to
Highlands running guru Chet
Brojek for inspiration, he said
local triathlete Steve Jones is
his triathlon mentor.
"I'm a learner," Morton
said, explaining Jones pro-
vides technical advice such as
how to tuck in and "get aero"
on the bike, understanding
what gears to use and when to
surge.
At his father's house last
week, Morton found a
triathlon training book he
bought in 1985 when he was a
teenager who couldn't afford
the necessary bicycle.
It's a reminder of a goal
that, despite the years, he's
still chasing and hopes to
accomplish. He's probably
more ready now than ever
before.
He said the divorce was the
catalyst, but he also said pass-
ing out water on the side of
the road to Heartland
Triathlon racers last year
planted the seed.
"I'in not a guy to inspire
anybody," he said.
Maybe, maybe not.
You decide.

THREAT
Continued from 2A
poisoning locally. The major-
ity of the poisoning cases he
has encountered involved
people running cars in closed
garages, which is believed to
have caused Monday's
tragedy.
While many of those cases
are suicide attempts, some
police departments have dealt
with poisoning problems
caused by sitting in running
cars for long periods of time.
Far less poisoning cases
have occurred from people
using portable generators,


Nichols said.
"We haven't run into it a lot
here," Nichols said, partly
because there aren't that
many major disasters that
knock out power for long
periods of time. "Really, there
aren't that many instances
where we've used genera-
tors."
But because of the difficul-
ties inherent in detecting the
deadly gas, carbon monoxide
is "absolutely a danger" to
everyone, Nichols said.
."It's odorless and color-
less," he said. "You're not
going to see it, smell it or
anything else."

Dixi had a purpose in life


We used to buy and raise
baby chicks, and I enjoyed
watching them grow, keeping
tabs on their progress and
just generally doting on
them. Once the\ were grown,
I l would sell them as mature
laying hens. The last bunch I
bought included 40 or 50
chicks that I had had for
about six weeks, meaning
that they were about six or
eight inches tall when the
chicken snake found them.
I went out one evening to
feed and found a snake about
4-feet long curled in the cor-
ner of the coop. He had
entered through one of the
octagonal holes in the poul-
try netting and consumed one
of the baby chicks. The tell-
tale bulge about halfway
down his body was my first
clue. The cuts and scrapes
around this bulge was my
second clue; once he had
eaten the baby chick he'd
been too fat to get back out
through the small hole, and
had cut himself to ribbons
finding that out. He finally
gave up and was lying there
peacefully waiting to digest
his dinner, while the remain-
der of the chicks huddled in
the opposite corner.
I understand that snakes
have a right to live, and have
to eat, but I was livid.
Despite my fury, I calmly
called to my dog Dixi, a
stubby little pointer mix who
was the most ferociously
effective snake-killing dog
S that I have ever had the
pleasure of being acquainted
with.
Si Dixi wasn't particularly
brave ... anything with
wheels completely terrified
her, and thunder would send
her under the house, whining,
with her tail tucked. But
when it came to snakes, Dixi
shined. She lived by the the-
ory that a good snake was a
dead snake, and for the most
part I tended to agree with
her.
I lifted the snake from the
cage by the tail and Dixi
went completely wild, bark-
ing, jumping, and basically
foaming at the mouth. I
tossed the snake away, and as
I said, a snake is a living
thing and I didn't particularly
want to watch what was
about to happen, so I went
back to feeding my surviving
chicks.
While Dixi circled the

biting snake or not my
father-in-law, who was visit-
ing from Texas, wandered up
, and asked what was going
on. I explained about the
snake and the baby chick and
how I had left the revenge
part up to Dixi. He eyed the
snake and then glanced at the
little chickens.
"That snake ate one of
those chickens?" he asked,
and I nodded.
"No way, they're too big,"
he said. /
"Way," I replied, "just
watch."
Dixi was in her glory. She
was at the center of attention
doing what she was best at ...
snake killing. I could tell by
the tenor of her barking that
she had found the sweet spot
that little window of
opportunity that allowed her
to grab the snake before the
snake grabbed her and she
struck.
She grabbed the snake just
behind the head and whipped

times so quickly that the
action was a complete blur.
Some vital part of the snake
went flying past my head and
I ducked.
The snake was clearly
dead, but Dixi circled and
growled and nipped at it even
though it had long since
stopped moving. After a
bit of maneuvering, I found
what I was looking for; a rip
in the snake's skin where the
baby chick could be seen. I
dug around and pulled it out.
It was dead of course, but
completely intact. I held it up
for my father-in-law to
examine.
"Well, I'll be," he said. "I
never would have believed
it."

Some issues to consider for 2008
Editor:
I believe the most important issues for
2008 would be Medicare and Social Security,
but I don't think most people consider priva-
tization as the solution. This program has
served us well for many years as it is and I'm
a firm believer of protecting it by making it a
crime with severe consequences for anyone
withdrawing these funds for other purposes
the IOU's should be repaid.
We have the immigration dilemma. Those
who have come here illegally should have a
thorough background check and if they quali-
fy, they should be given a reasonable length
of time to learn English and become citizens.
If they don't adhere, they should be deported.
There should be a concession for family
members before any more are allowed to
come with a moratorium until we overcome
the present burden.
Then there should be a limit on the number
allowed. The borders should be protected and
the laws enforced. Any coming illegally after
should be deported no questions asked and
if one slips through the cracks, there should
be a stiff penalty.
An explanation of how this has affected
our society should be explained to the
American people, how it has affected health
care, crime, Social Security, welfare and
other social programs to name a few. This
problem has cost the taxpayer many dollars.
Sovereignty is qf the utmost importance.
The elimination of the borders between
Mexico and the United States and between
Canada and the United States should not be a
consideration; we do not need these countries
included as a part of America. It' would, with-
out a doubt, present many problems. Nor do
we need this Super Highway. We certainly
don't need our government taking peoples'
property to accommodate the same. It's
wrong. This eminent domain should be
repealed.
Judges: We need to continue to provide
Supreme Court judges that will uphold the
law as it was intended. This is of the utmost
importance. If we don't have someone who
will stand up to the American Civil Liberties
Union, our country will continue to be on a
downhill journey. Our children are being
deprived of many important things they need
to be taught. We cannot take God out of our
world and expect His blessings.
One world government and the United
Nations is a recipe for disaster; Withdraw
from the U.S. and discard all ideas of one
world government. These are things that are
important to a lot of people. I do not under-
stand how the ACLU has access to our taxes
to promote their ideology, which is against
most everything the Americans believe in.
Many of us are praying that God will pro-
vide a candidate that will uphold these values
and will give us the wisdom to elect him.
May God guide each of us in these very-
important matters.

And let's not forget the "No Bid Contract"
that Bush gave Haliburton to pump Iraq oil.
Do you think that Bush and Cheney didn't get
a big kick-b'ack from that sweetheart deal?
Now I read where $12 billion from Iraqi oil
has come up missing. Now where do you sup-
pose that $12 billion went?
Do you suppose that Bush and Cheney and
Haliburton didn't pocket a large portion of
that lost and let's not forget the

Iran, so that they can get their hands into

Opinions should not be

Editor:
Recently we are reading letters with the
same theory, that President George Bush is
the destruction of our country. No writer tells
where their information comes from; if it's
their research or from the Internet, using
other people's opinions and passing those
opinions on to the readers.
'All one has to do is look around and see
what is happening in the world, with murder
abound, child molesters killing very young
children, drunk drivers killing more people in
a year than the war in Iraq, stealing, cheating,

homes with those intending to rob, killing or
beating those people. And the destruction of

Student safety

takes on new

importance

I read Gov. Charlie Crist's
Executive Order, No. 07-77,
establishing the
Gubernatorial Task Force for
University Campus Safety
some three weeks ago. I was
impressed with the swiftness
this document was formulat-
ed.
1 The horrific massacre at
Virginia Tech State

for action in protecting stu-
dents at all universities, not
only in Florida but through-
out the country. The task
force's objectives included
coordinating communication
and administration between
education, mental health, law
enforcement and emergency
agencies in order to recog-
nize early symptoms of radi-
cal behavior and state of
mind, and to alert the noted
agencies of same.
The task force is to identi-
fy elements of prevention,
intervention, response and
conclusions for further fol-
lowing analysis. It held six
meetings in May throughout
the state to gather data on
procedures and programs
already in place, plus sug-
gestions for developing'
enhancement of them, plus
innovations discussed but not
yet implemented in meeting
this challenge.
Although the massive vio-
lence at Virginia Tech was
unique, murders had
occurred on campuses
before; thus, it was urgent to
quickly discover the ration-
ale and mental mind set of
disturbld students.
This document was fairly
thorough in touching on the
number of significant ele-
ments of behavior, the role
of the different agencies,
procedures and programs to
be implemented in the effort
to prevent a repeat of such
disasters and implement
treatment of designated stu-
dents and individuals
Through coordination of
activities as the agencies
I noted above.
The task force formulated
formidable accommodations
for those agencies:
1. Identify,students who
pose risk and improve infor-
mation sharing.
2. Identify methods of
emergency notification.
3. Identify strategies to
improve cross-agency com-
munication.
4. Identify improvements
Sto train first responders.
In establishing the criteria
for this thorough, compre-
hensive study, mention was
noted what had occurred in
kindergarten through 12
schools throughout the
nation. Such agencies as the
Florida Crisis Intervention
Team have already imple-
mented some of the criteria
recommended by the task
force. It was quite evident
that numerous agencies
already know about the prob-
lems and are pursuing them
in their individual jurisdic-
tions. The point is that the
various agencies are not
apprised of what each is
doing and how coordination
of effort could not only be
cost efficient, but also alert
them to similar patterns of
behavior by disturbed indi-
viduals who may cross mul-
tiple lines of jurisdiction.
Follow-up is an essential fac-

Continued from 12A
our Christian beliefs, trying
to take Christ out of our lives
and our country and replac-
ing it with non-Christian atti-
tudes, which lacks of morals.
I no longer get upset when
I read these letters, as one
day going to my Bible I
found Matthew 24-4-14 and
consider the hatred of
President George Bush is
because he is a professed
saved Christian and is not
afraid to let the world know
of his belief in Christ.
Matthew 24 deals with
Christ's answer to the signs
of the end of the world.
Verses 4-10, "And Jesus
answered and said unto them,
take heed that no man
deceive you. For many shall
come in my name saying, I
am Christ: and shall deceive
many. And you shall hear of
wars and rumors of Wars: see
that you be not troubled: for
all these things must come to
pass, but the end is not yet.
For nation shall rise against
nation, and kingdom against
kingdom: and there shall be
famines, and pestilence and
earthquakes, in divers places.
And all these are the begin-
ning of sorrows. Then shall
they deliver you up to be
afflicted, and shall kill you:
and ye shall be hated by all
nations for my name's sake.
And then shall many be
offended,'and shall betray
one another, and shall hate
one another."
Go to your Bible and read
verses 11-15 and pay atten-
tion to verse 14 "... And this
gospel of the kingdom shall
be preached in all the world
for a witness unto all nations;
and the end will come."
The main point of this let-
ter is, Christ predicts those
who claim of their belief in
Christ will be hated, and
most certainly these letters
that are written is definitely
to have the reader hate
President George Bush.


And is going into Iraq also
fulfilling the scripture. Since
our going into Iraq there are
more Christians practicing
their Christian beliefs than
before the war.
Is President George Bush
Christ's choice to be presi-
dent, as Christ would know
that President George Bush
who speaks of his belief in
Christ would hold fast to his
beliefs and not waver and
bow down to the wishes of
those who want to destroy
our Christian beliefs in the
United States? ...
President George Bush
after six years of this torment
is holding strong in his belief
in Christ, who Christ has told
all Christians who believe in
Christ that not a stone will
hurt a toe on your foot, when
you hold fast to your belief
in Jesus Christ.
I did not get my informa-
tion from the Internet, but
from the Holy Bible, which
outsells any book year after
year, which will outlast all
thpes who listen to those who


want you as American
hate.

come her injuries. Dr. John
Young and his dedicated staff
at Highlands Animal Hospital
were a blessing, so very car-
ing and professional. Not a
day went by that we didn't
get updates on her condition
from Dr. Young (even on
Saturday night, the eve of
Father's Day). But after sev-
eral days, her condition
began to deteriorate and that.
awful but humane decision
had to be made.
It was and still is very dif-
ficult, like losing a meinber
of the family. We feel very
blessed to have such wonder-
ful people in our community.
The Webster Family
Sebring

'Pie Rats' was a
lesson for many


s to Editor:
I have been "overdue" in
Thomas writing you about a wonder-
Sebring ful show I was able to attend,
"Pie Rats" at Restoration
Center in Sebring, under the
direction (and hard work) of
Larry and Rachel Moore.
There were 18 youngsters
who did a fantastic job and I
don't believe any mistakes.
iank After the performance, the
pie funny and talented Larry
ie at a Moore had all of the kids
as their come out and sit on stage,
n that and Larry invited questions
oved from the audience. A little,5-
an 12 year-old boy named "Bo"
asked, "Why did you call this
'aniels, play 'Pie Rats'? I didn't see
l's any rats on that stage." Larry
i. graciously brought him on
Pickup stage and explained all of the
opped props and '.11 about it. I
out of believed, We all learned a les-
ouse pet son and enjoyed a great time.
ad this Looking forward to more
st like of your shows Larry. Thanks
or the so much.

well enough, you learn that all dogs have
some special talent; the knowledge and
courage to do whatever it is they are meant to
do. Dixi began killing snakes as a puppy.
Being dumb humans, we tried to discourage
this behavior until we realized that this was
not a voluntary thing with her. Dixi had to
kill snakes, it was what she lived for.
I lost Dixi a couple of years later to a fast
truck with an inattentive driver and I mourn
her like I would a lost child. I can't see a


snake, or hear it thunder without thinking of
her. I've never known another dog like her,
and would be surprised if another such dog
exists, and at the end of the day, dogs are like
humans ... the best they can hope for when
they leave this earth is to be remembered in
some way. Dixi need never worry that she
came and went unnoticed, because I for one,
will never forget her.

departments have been
deploying a centralized data-

This document was quite
informative and comprehen-
sive and as noted, designed
for college and university
campuses. Curiously, several
types of behavior have been
occurring on kindergarten
through 12 campuses for
years.-Two are quite signifi-
cant in that two bills were
pursued in the Florida
Legislature this past spring:
truancy and bullying. They
have been ongoing problems
for decades, but the
Legislature was too con-
sumed with insurance rates

and property taxes that they
"overlooked" these bills
(Truancy, HB 277, SB
336,360; Bullying HB 575;
SB 114). (Oops! The truancy
bill wasn't even introduced
because it was a "one county
issue").
Enactment of those two
bills would have initiated an
immediate start of the solu-
tion to the mental well being
of thousands of students.
Truants do not want to go to
school to be bullied, extorted
and humiliated on a.daily
basis. The bullying bill
would have given the teach-
ers and administrators specif-
ic authority to hold bullies
and their parents account-
able. The truancy bill would
have addressed the problem


of truant students by tighten-
ing the current murky state
laws and providing
teachers/adninistrators more
definitive authority to
enforce school regulations.
Couldn't the governor and
legislators perceive this in
light of this Executive Order?
Those two bills would
have been the precursors to
Gov. Crist's goal. Those vic-;
tims will have to wait anoth-
er year for protection and
assistance. Meanwhile, their
numbers will grow.

Scott Humston's 'Pro-Kids' show came to the Sebring Public Library on June 27. For
approximately 45 minutes, the entertainment professional offered storytelling, skits
and magic tricks related to life enrichment obtained through frequent library use.
Audience participation was used throughout the program, and the children enjoyed the
performance that also covered honesty, respect, self-esteem, cooperation and responsi-
bility, and the Dewey decimal classification system. The Sebring Friends of the Library
sponsored 'Pro-Kids' as part of the 2007 library's summer reading program.

Veterans Council of Highlands County

receives donations from VFW 3880, Elks


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Carl Arthur,
chairperson for the Veterans
Assistance Committee for the
Veterans Council of
Highlands County, received a
donation from the VFW 3880,
Sebring, on July 4. The'
Sebring Elks, along with
Brig. Gen. (Ret.) and Mrs.
Wilson T. Dreger and Mr. and
Mrs. James Weiss, donated
funds earlier in the day to the
same Veteran Committee for
the relief fund, during their
celebration.
The Veterans Assistance
Committee serves the needy
veterans and his/her family by
providing assistance when
other veteran service organi-
zations have not been able to
provide the assistance. 'Each
of the, veteran organizations
in Highlands County has an
assistance program in place.
If a veteran organization is
unable to assist the needs of
an individual veteran or his or
her family, the organization
contacts another veteran unit
for back up.
When no other sources are
available through the network
of veteran organizations, the
Veterans Assistance
Committee will evaluate the
case upon referral by a veter-
an organization. If the need is
warranted, a one-time assis-
tance will be provided.
A veteran-in-need does not
need to be a member of any
veteran organization to be eli-
gible for assistance, though
the veteran services organiza-
tions were established to be of
assistance to the veterans, not
just operate as social.clubs.
The goals of the VAC are to
take care of their own; and to
ensure that no veteran or vet-
eran's family will be left
behind. Assistance for the
'needy veteran or veteran's
family may include such
items as food, clothing, or
medical attention. Payment
'will be made directly from the
" fund to the vendor: no cash
will be handed to the person
or family in need.
The Veterans Assistance
Committee can also provide
information regarding other
sources that may assist the
individual; provide emer-
gency transportation to or
from a VA facility, or find a
source that can be of further
assistance. Contact a local
veteran organization for more
information.
The Veterans Council is
made up of representatives
from more than 20 veteran
service organizations in

I've got a lovely

set of coconuts
Ever notice how you talk
with someone about a topic,
and for the next several days,
it seems that topic keeps
coming up with everyone
with whom you speak? This
week's topic was palms.
Friends were telling me
about when they were grow-
ing up in Florida, they would
drink the juice from
coconuts. There were three
spots at the top of the nut,
and you would find the spot
that was the softest. That
was the spot you would push
through and it would create a
natural spout that you could
Drink the juice through.
Then, you would break open
the shell and eat the coconut
meat.
A friend from
Pennsylvania remarked that
she always had the milk
from a coconut. The
Floridians explained that
coconut milk was from
pressing the meat until it liq-
uefied. They were very care-
ful to make sure we under-
stood there was a difference
* between coconut juice and
coconut milk
(http://en.wikipedia.
org/wiki/Coconut _milk).
My first real experience
with palm trees was when we
visited West Palm Beach
when I was 9 years old. We
drove down Flagler Drive,
which is lined with majestic
king palm trees or, as they
were called then, "royal
palms": Tha, was the begin-
ning of my education that
there are almost 3,000
species of palm trees to be
found in the world, "ranging
in size and form from small
trunkless shrubs to towering
200-foot-tall trees"
(www.plantapalm.com/vpe/
horticulture/vpe_horticul-
turel.htm).
While doing research on
palms, I found out that they
don't grow like other trees.
They only grow once, as a
monocott," a tree that does-
n't produce bark or wood.-
Palms rely on their roots and
the initial plant to remain
upright. One can see how
easily damage to a palm will
cause its untimely demise.
If you wish to explore the
various species of palms,
take a look at www.palmen-
cyclopedia.com/. It is a
wonderful compendium of
photographs and text about
the various palms found in
our region.
After the 2004 hurricanes,
I was ready to move from the
rental in which I was living
to a home. While on a walk
one evening past my neigh-
bor's home, I paused to
enjoy the lighted oasis in
.front of their home. The area
was landscaped beautifully
and was outlined against the
setting sun's night sky. As I
looked at the palm tree
swaying softly in the breeze,
I realized I wanted a palm
tree at my next home.
Imagine my delight when I
found a palm tree in the front
yard of the home to which I
moved.
And lest anyone asks you,
yes, the Muppets did record,
"I've got a lovely set of
coconuts"
(www.mlyrics.com/lyrics/Mu
ppets/Unknown/r've_Got_a
Lovely _Bunch of_Coconuts).

'Transformers' turns this skeptic into a believer


I'm a bit of a Transformers
nerd. There, I said it.
When I saw that a live-
action movie based on one of
my favorite aspects of my
childhood was being made, I
was naturally skeptical. And
when I walked into the the-
ater, I was all ready to be
profoundly disappointed.
I couldn't have been more
wrong.
I'm not sure how other
die-hard fans feel about this
film, but my feelings are
crystal clear: I absolutely
loved "Transformers." It kept
my attention from beginning
to end (a difficult feat for a
2.5 hour movie), and I want-
ed to turn right around and
watch it again when it was
over.
The movie works for sev-
eral reasons, one being its
intriguing plot. The film
begins with a bang (br more
literally, a series of bangs),
as an unknown machine
attacks a U.S. military,base
in the Middle East.
As the government tries to
figure out what happened, a
socially awkward high-school
student named Sam Witwicky
(Shia LaBeouf) is on the cusp
of getting his first car.
Instead of the Porsche that he
wants, he ends up with a
slightly battered 1970s-era
Camaro that mysteriously
drove itself into the used car
lot.
The government is shocked
to learn that it wasn't
attacked by anything human.
And Sam is shocked when he
discovers his old busted-up
Camaro is instead a robotic
entity named Bumblebee,
who is sent to protect him.
Sam's shock grows after
Optimus Prime, the leader of
the Autobots (also known as
"the good-guy
.. ansformers"), shows up
- ailngives him some shocking

information..Sam's long-for-
gotten Arctic explorer grand-
father made a huge discovery
when he found Megatron, the
leader of the Decepticons
(AKA "the bad-guy
Transformers") frozen in ice.
Sam is also surprised to learn
that he holds the key to the
cube that holds the key to life
for all Transformers.
Confused? Don't worry.
While those of us whose
childhood was filled with
Transformer toys already
know about these characters,
the plot is explained just fine
Sfor first-timers.
Going into the film, I was
mightily concerned that
director Michael Bay (the
director of previous schlock-
fests "The Island," "Pearl
Harbor," and "The Rock")
would do everything he could
to run the venerable series.
But not to worry. Bay does
an absolutely tremendous job
at the helm of this film. The
pacing is crisp throughout,
and the action and special
effects are nothing short of
stupendous.
The cast is tremendous,
and LaBeouf in particular
shines in his sd'ond standout

'Transformers'
gets




performance this year (his
other one being "Disturbia,"
the sleeper hit of this spring).
Besides the good acting,
"Transformers" also features
a surprising amount of very
funny moments. Anthony
Anderson and Bernie Mac
have hilarious cameos as a
computer hacker and used car
salesman, respectively. And
LaBeouf shines in several
comedic moments, another
example of his wide acting
range.
Predictably enough,
"Transformers" isn't perfect.
The film is obviously far-
fetched, and it's a tad hokey.
But it's a movie about
machines that transform into
living, talking things, so a bit
of hokey-ness isn't exactly
shocking.
Some people won't be able

to get over these things, but
those people aren't any fun.
If you can suspend your dis-
belief and just enjoy the
show, you'll have a wonder-
ful time in the theater.
"Transformers" has one
major advantage in that it has
a built-in audience. A genera-
tion of children who played
with the toys and watched the
cartoons were almost certain-
ly excited to see a live-action
big-screen version. In a nod
to this audience, several
wink-wink references to the
cartoons and the 1986 ani-
mated film are scattered
throughout the movie.
Most highly anticipated
films end up being disap-
pointing. But "Transformers"
easily avoids this trap by
being more than just an
explosion fest. The film's fre-
netic pacing is perfect, and
the script is solid. The plot
moves frenetically but sensi-
cally, and the special effects
make the movie better with-
out being all that the movie
is.
So take out those
Transformer toys and play
with them proudly,
Transformers fans. This
movie will'not disappoint
you.
And if you're not a
Transformers fan (which is,
quite frankly, appalling), fear
not you'll have a good time
at this movie. And who
knows? Maybe this film will
make you a new fan.
Better late than never.

If you are like most
Americans, you love collect-
ing things ... from stamps to
paperweights and everything
else in between. Why not
find a special niche or cranny
for your collection of
favorites.
None of us wants our
homes and offices to resem-
ble museums, so your col-
lectibles should be displayed
according to their decorative
value and shown in arrange-
ments that coordinate with
the rest of,your interior,
whether at your home or
office. Here are some point-
ers to help you achieve that
polished look to your dis-
plays:
Don't crowd your dis-
play ... it looks confusing.
Arrange like objects
together.
Consider the practical
use of the object and use that
to determine how to display
it, such as all beer mugs
together, all porcelain boxes
together, etc.
The more items you
have, the greater the impact
will be.
Group things of like col-
ors and textures together.

Dixie Youth Ozone (ages 11-12) State Tournament




Sebring Ozone Out at Home


All-Stars fall to West Volusia American for second time in tourney, take second in state


News-Sun photos by DAN HOEHNE
Sebring's Josh Gomez, above, is tagged out at the plate by,
the West Volusia American catcher Wednesday as the Blue-
and-White fell in the Dixie Youth Ozone state title game at
the Max Long Recreational Complex. Below: The state run-
ner-up Sebring Dixie Youth Ozone (ages 11-12) All-Stars.


By John Ritter
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING It's not that
Sebring didn't have a good
resume.
In fact, they may have had
one of the best scoring more
runs in one game than any
other team in the 2007 Ozone
State Tournament (16).
It's not that Sebring could-
n't play with its back against
the wall winning three
straight loser's bracket games
to get to the championship.
And it certainly wasn't a
lack of support as droves of
Sebring fans continually
appeared at Max Long
Recreational Complex to
endorse the host team, even


West Volusia American

12
Sebring

1
when one blue-and-white
game didn't start until well
past 10 p.m.
There was just nothing that
could be done about West
Volusia American..
Despite all of the aforemen-
tioned advantages, host-team
Sebring couldn't manage to
overcome that one team.
It was the reason for
Sebring's first loss of the
tournament earlier in the


week and, again, Sebring
couldn't figure out American
pitcher Shane Harlowe, giv-
ing way to a 12-1 loss
Wednesday night.
Harlowe, who picked up
the win last time American
beat Sebring, sparkled on the
mound again with four good
innings, striking out three and
only allowing five runners to
reach base.
He also helped his own
cause on offense, going 2-for-
2 while stroking a two-run
homer.
Jake Bryan led Sebring
offensively, going 2-for-2 as
well while centerfielder Kyle
Cunningham's solo homer
accounted for his team's only
RBI of the day.
But what turned out to be a
blowout, however, started as a
nail-biter as both teams grap-
pled for control of the game
early.
American was the first to
punch a run across when Seth
Lundquist singled and scored
on a Tucker Turner one-bagger.
The game would get back
to even quickly, though, when
.Cun'ningham answered in a
big way with a solo home run
that re-engergized the Sebring
faithful.
Using that momentum,
Sebring hurler. Ryan McNew
breezed past the American
lineup in the next frame with
a strikeout and two ground-
outs.
But when Sebring couldn't
scratch out a run in the bottom
of the second, American final-
ly struck in the top of the third
when Harlowe, batting out of


the nine-hole, drilled a two-
run tater to give his team it's
second lead of the game.
American put one more run
on the board the following
inning until finally sticking
the dagger in with an explo-
sive seven-run fifth.
'I've been

blessed with a

great group of

kids, great
coaches and

fantastic support

from all the

parents.'

KELLY PAYNE

Harlowe and Lungquist
opened the inning with a pair
of singles to put two men on.
Turner followed up with a
run-scoring single before his
brother, Tye Turner, cleared
the bases with a three-run
homer for an 8-1 lead.
With the game already in
hand, American put up four
more runs for good measure
on four consecutive hits.
"We had a good run, but
just ran out of pitching," head
coach Kelly Payne said. "It's
been a great season and I've
been blessed with a great
group of kids, great coaches
and fantastic support from all
the parents our crowds were
a big part of it. They're a
tgugh team, but second in
state isn't so bad."


Sebring's toss

makes up for loss


John Ritter


Everybody wearing blue
and white threw their hands
up in celebration Wednesday
night.
The Sebring players tossed
their gloves in the air,
jumped up and down and
screamed with each other.
Sebring's coaches slightly
grinned and shook each
other's hands.
The parents clapped aid
cheered as they looked upon
Jaycees Field.
It was a sight to behold.
After all, it certainly did-
n't look like a team that had
just lost it's first game of the
entire summer (albeit by
seven runs)..
But the delight didn't have
anything to do with that.
True, for the first time this
week, Sebring was dominat-
ed by pitcher Tyler Carr for
2 2/3 innings and couldn't
fend off Lake Placid's offen-
sive assault.
"I have to tip my hat to
them. (Lake Placid) came to
play," Sebring coach Bobby
Cannon would go on to say.
But what happened next
atoned for all that.
The LP win meant'three
teams each had one loss each
and Sebring was the only
one in the mix to drop a
game recently.

Dixie Youth AAA (ages 9-10) State Tournament


Lake Placid run comes to an end

Sebring, Bartow square off for state championship, World Series trip


BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING There are
times when a loss isn't
really a loss.
True, Lake Placid's side
of the scoreboard had
fewer runs showing than
their counterparts, but the
simple fact that the team
had .gotten to the State
Semifinals was a victory in
itself.
There was proof of that
'Thursday night as Lake
Placid's fans shouted in
approval"LP! LP! LP!",
despite a 9-

O Bartow, as
their team
collected

phies at
Max Long
Recreational Complex.
"Absolutely (it was an
accomplishment)," said
Lake Placid head coach
Steve Carr. "To be the run-
ner-up in any State
Tournament no matter
where you're from is
great."
Lake Placid became the
Cinderella story of the
2007 AAA State
Tournament, losing it's
first game of the tourna-
ment only to bounce back.
with four consecutive wins
to put themselves in a
three-way tie with Sebring
and Bartow. But after los-
ing the coin-toss to deter-
mine which team would
recieve a bye into the
championship, the green-
and-yellow couldn't con-
tain Bartow's offensive

Thing...

attack.
"We're disappointed,
obviously," said Carr.
"We've played much better
throughout the tournament.
Even the game we lost in
the beginning, we played
much better. But that's the
way it goes. They're nine
and ten (year-olds), we had
a good run and we're very
proud of the kids."
Some of that can be
accounted for by the fact
that LP simply ran out of
pitching in the end. By the
second inning of the game,


headliners Tyler Carr and
Courtney Delaney were all
out of innings and coaches
were forced to dig deeper
into it's roster for relievers.
"We got spent there at
the end," admitted Carr.
"But we asked these kids to
step up and pitch and they
pitched ok. We just gave up
too many unearned runs."
Meanwhile, Bartow
starter Matt Martin
sparkled on the hill, tossing
a complete game one-hit-
ter.
His only hiccup came in

the fourth inning when
Lake Placid drove home
three runs to tie the game
3-3. By then, Bartow
already seemed to have the
game in hand, scoring two
runs in the first inning and
then another in the third
until Lake Placid's bats
finally came alive.
Delaney started that
fourth-inning rally with a
walk and stole second.
Isaiah Velazquez followed
up with another, walk and
both runners moved up a
base on a Ronnie Lawrenz

Carr then came to the
plate for his second at-bat
and ripped a two-strike
fastball up the middle,

I am, by nature, a supersti-
tious person, who would nor-
mally try to move as little as
possible on this 'unlucky'
day.
But the more I read about
the roots of Friday the 13th,
the less worried I am about
it.
In many pre-Christian reli-
gions, both Friday and the
'number 13 were held in very
high regard.
In those times, women
were held sacred and with
Friday being the one day of
the week named after a
woman Freya, the goddess
of sex and fertility obvi-
ously it was held as a very
good day.
Similarly, the number 13
was held sacred by many
groups, and can be seen to
exist in man, nature, and the
heavens.
Some interesting exam-
ples?
There are 13 major joints
in your body, 13 lunar cycles
in a solar year and the moon
travels 13 degrees across the
sky every day.
The problems with both
Friday and the 13th, and the
confluence of them, seems to
come with Christianity.

HISTORY LESSON


10 YEARS AGO
July 14, 1997: In a drama-filled, ten-inning affair at the District 8 tournament in Okeechobee, Avon
Park American topped Sebring American, 4-3. Scoreless for the first six innings, Avon Park utilized a dou-
ble-steal to plate the first run in the seventh. But Smitty Hagel hustled all the way in from second on an
A.J. Danielson sacrifice bunt.The teams traded two runs each in the eighth and scoreless ninths to set the
stage for the tenth, when a two-out, bases-loaded walk brought Bobby Palmer in with the winning run
before Franky Perez got out of a two-on, two-out threat in the bottom of the inning for the win.Matt
Devlin worked the first seven innings for Avon Park, with Perez taking over for the final three. Mitchell
Sullivan, Ryan Williams and Eric Box did the moundwork for the Sebring squad.

New Office Building at



Sebring International Raceway


Special to the Nei i-Si
Sebring International
Raceway and the Sebring
Airport Authority announced
Rq- destruction will begin : thi ..
month on a nad*ef.tsa-,buLld-
ing at America's oldest and
most prestigious road racing
facility with a scheduled com-
pletion date of early
December.
The new 10,000 square-
foot, two-story structure will
include staff offices, track
registration center, gift shop
and ticket office.
"This building will be a
new landmark for Sebring,"
stated Raceway President and
General Manager Tres
Stephenson. "It will better
serve race fans, officials and
competitors and further
enhances Sebring's stature in
the motorsports industry.'
Racing began at Sebring in
1950, when the former WWII
B-17 training base hosted a
six-hour endurance race.
Since then Sebring has been
synonymous with internation-
al sports car racing. The 56th
annual Mobil 1 Twelve Hours
of Sebring takes place on
Saturday, March 15, kicking
off the 2008 American Le
Mans Series season.
Since acquiring Sebring


International Raceway in
1998, Panoz Motor Sports
Group has invested millions
of dollars in upgrades to the
facility. Despite the raceway's
extensive history, it has never
had a permanent headquar-
ters. The new facility will
replace existing office trail-
ers, which have been relocat-
ed to make room for the new
building.
"This new construction

project represents the contin-
ued commitment of Panoz
Motor Sports Group in main-
taining Sebring's reputation
as a world-class motorsports
facility," said Panoz Motor
Sports Group President and
CEO Scott Atherton. "This
structure will be an asset to,
the entire community."
Mike Willingham, Sebring
Airport Authority Executive
Director added: "Over the


past ten years, Panoz Motor
Sports Group has made dra-
matic improvements to
Sebring International
Raceway. This office building
joins a long list of important
new projects at the Sebring
Regional Airport and
Industrial Park and produces a
positive impact on the area
economy." ,

...but for me,
knowing God
has kind of put
everything into
perspective.
It's also taken off the
pressure. Like, I don't
have to handle
everything. I guess
that's what the people
at Unity call peace.
The bottom line is that
the more I get to know
God, the more it all
just works.

TGIF
Continued from 1D
could to suppress and reverse
as much of the pre-Christian
beliefs and customs as it
could.
So there's the brief history
lesson.
There have been some bad
things on this date, such as
Hurricane Charlie making
landfall, and Fidel Castro
being born.
Then again, so were Will
Clark and Marco Andretti,
and life has turned out pretty
OK for them.
Dan Marino wore the
number 13 throughout his
career and still holds many
NFL passing records and his
recent weight-loss seems to
have gone pretty well -
although he never did win
the Super Bowl.
Roberto Clemente was
another pro athlete who
donned the number during
his career.
And although he died far
too young and tragically,
Clemente had a remarkable
and impactful life and career.
Wilt Chamberlain also
wore 13 on his jersey, and it
didn't hurt his scoring totals
- on the court or with the
ladies.
So I guess with my
research I've learned that
Friday, 13 and Friday the
13th shouldn't be feared so
much after all.
Wait, isn't it this Friday,
this Friday, July 13, that
David Beckham is scheduled
to arrive in America?,
I'm staying home.

TOSS
Continued from 1D
would have to resort to a
coin-toss to determine the
final bracket layout and win-
ning the flip meant Sebring
would still be in total control
with a bye into the champi-
onship game. A loss meant
the host team would still
need to win another game to
get there.
The coin-toss, however,
gave them a break.
When the verdict came
down, Sebring was still in
control and everybody wear-
ing blue and white threw up
their hands in celebration.
Three squads were eligible
for the bye: Bartow (who had
lost to Sebring the day
before), Sebring (who had
just lost to Lake Placid), and
Lake Placid (who dropped
the first game of the tourna-
ment but hadn't lost since).
It was a tangled web.
After all of the effort each
team put into getting to the
championship, two would still
have to win a pair of games
while one team could sit
back, relax and coast.
Rewind a bit.
Prior to it's meeting with
Lake Placid, Sebring was on
a tremendous roll, winning
14 straight games that
included two mini-tourna-
ments earlier'in the summer
before three straight victories
in this week. In the first two
games on Saturday and
Sunday, Sebring shut out it's
opponents by a combined
,score of 10-0.
Head coach Tim Baker
used his pitching staff in a
variety of ways, rolling out


the old-fashioned 2-2-2 strat-
egy in the first game, then
riding Alex Forde for the
Majority of the second. By
then, everybody in the AAA
State Tournament was on
notice that the host was the
team to beat.
The following day, Bartow,
who had been equally as
dominant in the first two
games, was pounded for the
first time all tournament by
Sebring's tikes, 12-3.
Lake Placid, in the mean-
time, opened the tourney like
many Lake Placid team's had
done before them: slowly and
uneventfully.
But behind the leadership
of coach's son, Tyler Carr,
the troup has been anything
but that since, breezing
through the loser's bracket
with wins over Spring Hill,
Callaway and, most recently,
undefeated Sebring.
The surprising, yet lop-
sided, win was enough to
shake the host team's confi-
dence, seeing it is that no 9-
10 year old Lake Placid All-
Star team had gone this deep
into a tournament in recent
memory and was undeniably
the hottest squad until losing
last night to Bartow, 9-3.
But now, after promptly
being taken out of the dri-
ver's seat, Sebring seems to
be back in it
\ Following the coin-toss,
everybody wearing blue and
white threw their hands up in
celebration Wednesday night.
Players.
Coaches.
Fans.
After losing it's first game
of the tournament, Sebring
still found a way to win.

centerfielder's mitt, to score
Delaney and Velazquez. The
speedy Carr soon tied the
game, scoring on a wild pitch
to send the Lake Placid faith-
ful into a tizzy.
"We came out a little flat
and then picked it back up,"
Carr said.
Bartow would rebound
quickly, however, and
pounced on Lake Placid's
relievers in it's share of the
fourth.
Ryan Pierce reached on an
error to start the inning and
was followed by a single and
a fielder's choice to put two
men on. Rightfielder Zach
Hastings immediately took
two men off witl a double to
right-center to increase his
team's lead to 5-3. Matt
Priesler added a triple to
score Hastings and then came
home himself on a Daniel Till
line-drive double.
For good measure, Bartow
added another pair of runs on
a Tony Gibson single in the'
bottom of the fifth.
The Polk county team now
faces Sebring tonight at 6 pm
for the State Championship.

Lake Placid 12,
Sebring 5
They're not done yet.
Sure, Lake Placid may have
hiccuped a bit in the first
round of the 2007 AAA State
Tournament with a 5-1 loss to
Bushnell.
But while all of the other
teams in the loser's bracket
have faded away, Lake Placid
continued to march forward
with wins over perennial
power Spring Hill, Callaway
and now, previously undefeat-
ed Sebring with a 12-5 romp
Wednesday night.
Pitcher Tyler Carr silenced
Sebring's bat for the first time
this tournament, striking out
six in 2 2/3 innings.
The hurler did it at the dish
as well, going 3-for-3 with
three runs scored.


In the meantime, Lake
Placid jumped ahead early,
getting three runs on the
board in the top of the first
inning.
Ronnie Lawrenz started the
assault with a single and
moved to second on a Carr
walk.
Two more walks then
paved the way for Lawrenz to
be forced home to make it 1-
0.
That score grew when Scott
Colley and Rocco Warner
each hit RBI singles to score
Carr and Justin Mason.
After giving up runs in the
first inning for the first time
all tournament, Sebring
jumped on'the bases in their
share of the first in hopes to
regain some of that lost
ground.
But after Ely White led off
with a walk and Jordan Baker
reached on an error, Carr
came up with a strikeout (his
third of the inning) to avoid
any damage.
The pitcher would then
help his own cause in the
third inning, reaching on a
single and coming home on
an infield error.
Justin Larosa, who was
responsible for batting that
booted ball, was benefitted
again by a Sebring error,
coasting home from third on a
wild pitch to make it 5-0.
Sebring found somewhat of
a response in the bottom of
the third when J. C. Cobb and
Jason Cannon scored on an
Alex Gomez double to get
within three.
That's as close as Sebring.
would get, however, as Lake
Placid batted around in the
fourth inning, pumping out
six more runs.
The win set up a three-way
tie between LP, Sebring and
Bartow with a coin-toss
deciding who received the
bye, into the championship.
Sebring won the toss meaning
Lake Placid would have to
continue its bonzer run to the
championship facing Bartow
Thursday.
