Neiws-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Monday night's
Avon Park city council meeting will
be short on items and long on dis-
cussion, with a couple of safety serv-
ice items on the agenda that have
become hot potatoes the munici-
pal fire assessment and turning over
the police department's police dis-
patch system to the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office.
First will be a public hearing on
the rate resolution for the fire/rescue
assessment. When the public hearing
was held for the then-controversial
measure, council members moved
the venue to the Avon Park
Community Center in order to hold a
crush of residents, businessmen and
church leaders. Still, it was standing
room only with a long stream of
speakers claiming citizens would not
be able to pay the fee and that


not come true, there are indications
that once again there will be opposi-
Stion to the assessment, especially in.
light of last month's actions by the
council 'to include churches and
buildings owned by not-for-profit
groups.
There had been some discussion
on including government buildings,
however Avon Park Finance Officer
Renee Green said recent rulings
have provided a way to exempt gov-
ernmental structures without dis-
turbing others in the "institutional
properties" categories.
City council members voted in
July to include the category in the
assessment for the first time since it


was passed in the year 2000.
However, in an effort to phase them
in, this year's assessment for the
institutional category would be set at
just half of what everybody else is
paying.
Also on Monday night's agenda
will be more discussion on the
notion of going to a centralized dis-
patch system for the Avon Park
Police Department. Council mem-
bers were left in a quandary at the
end of their last meeting after receiv-
ing widely disparate conversion fig-
ures from the police department and
sheriff's officials.
In addition to disputes over the
costs, there were concerns voiced

churches would have to curtail their
mission works.
Landlord Alvin Smith told the
council most of his renters were on
state and federal subsidies and
would find it a hardship to pay the
fees. Pastor Vernon Harkey of First
Baptist Church turned a 1,105-signa-
ture petition in to city officials in
opposition to the assessment against
the church. Businessman Kenny
Long told the council such a charge
would "put a name on the town like

2 infant death

cases still

being probed

Two women jailed in
connection with 1 case
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING Two infant
deaths in as many weeks are
still under investigation.
The first incident occurred
at 10:38 p.m. on Aug. 13 at
Florida Hospital Lake Placid.
The infant was 8 months,old.
Diane Friesen-Meier, 41,
of Lake Placid was arrested
for aggravated child abuse,
Lt. John Chess of the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office said.
"She is arrested and in jail
for that, as soon as the med-
ical examiner rules on the
death of the child, her charges
can be raised," he said.
"Right now we are awaiting
the cause of death."
Jennifer Perry, 31, of Port
Charlotte was also charged
with obstructing a crimityal
investigation in the incident.
Sheriff Susan Benton said
Thursday additional charges
to the two women in custody
and more arrests to those
involved in the incident could
happen shortly.
In the second incident, on
Aug. 21, police were notified
at 10 p.m.
The infant was younger
than 2 months old, found dur-
ing the night by a family
member and was unrespon-
sive.
When they realized the
baby was not breathing, the
family member drove straight
to Florida. Hospital
Heartland, Chess said.
"We still have to wait for
toxicology, it could be natural
or SIDS (Sudden Infant
Death Syndrome)" he said.
"We will not know anything
about that, it takes much
longer; nothing indicates foul
play."
No charges have been
made yet in the second case
pending the toxicology
report.

Homeless mental patient charged

with threatening President Bush


Associated Press
TAMPA A mentally ill
homeless man has been
charged with threatening to
shoot President Bush.
Secret Service agents were
called to the psychiatric unit
of St. Joseph's Hospital,
where Timothy Wade
Pinkston, 47, had been taken
on an involuntary commit-
ment order.
Pinkston told hospital staff
that he planned to go to


Washington and shoot the
president.
When Secret Service
agents arrived to interview
him, he repeated the threat,
saying he doesn't like the
president's foreign policy or
his handling of the war in
Iraq, according to an affidavit
filed by the Secret Service in
U.S. District Court.
Pinkston was charged
Friday with threatening the
president, a federal crime.

about the safety, efficiency and reli-
ability of a centralized dispatch sys-
tem. Officer David Sass, who also is
the department's union representa-
tive, said he'd had numerous conver-
sations with fellow officers who
hated the system, citing delays from
overworked dispatchers.
SPosts on a number of Internet dis-
cussion areas, including one at
www.newssun.com, showed officer
dissatisfaction. However, council-
woman Brenda Gray, who works the
parole and probation system, said
she had heard opposing opinions.
In an effort to help sort things out,
Mayor Sharon Schuler and council-
man Joe Wright have visited both the
Highlands County Sheriff Office's
centralized dispatch and the Avon
Park Police Department's radio
room and discussed the respective
operations before making a decision
in the matter.

Continued from 1A
co-owner of Air Trek, told the
Herald-Son that Spindler was
the company's medical direc-
tor and worked there for more
than 10 years. As medical
director, he supervised the
medical staff.
According to Air Trek's
Web site (www.medjets.com),
Spindler. was a former U.S.
Air Force flight surgeon who
was board certified in emer-
gency medicine and family
practice; an active member of
the Air Medical Physician
Association, the Aerospace
Medical Association, and
numerous local physician
organizations; and he' also
chaired Air Trek's continuous
quality irriprovement commit-
tee.
Spindler was charged


Wednesday with various
crimes including child abuse
and sexual battery. He was
being held in solitary without
bond at the Highlands County
Jail in a two-man cell. He was
found hanging in his jail cell
early Thursday morning by
jail officials.
Spindler was not on suicide
watch, Benton said, because
he was cordial with employ
ees and there was no indica-
tion of any problems.
In a case under investiga-
tion since June, officials from
the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office arrested the
contract doctor working at
Highlands Regional Medical

Spindler met the girl, now
14, when she was 7 or 8 years
old.
Benton carefully explained
the difference between
pedophile and sexual abuse
c 'tcs.
"The) (pedophiles) don't
just ,cdlie the victim ... they
Lake in and befriend those that
iLc" parental supervision
Lefore they begin the slow
seduction process,'' she said.
"This is not like the neighbor
down the road having sex
ivith a iiinor. This is a whole
different type of investiga-
toin, :he slow and methodical
procedure by a pedophile."
She said that if any further
victims come forward, the
sheriff office will provide
i .:ctou ces to help start the
healing process.

at the Shops at Shelby Crossing on Friday, where the letters for the sign were being lined up
for installation.

been staying at the Holiday
Inn Express as they prepared
the new store for its opening.
They will then return to their
homes.
Peet, who has relocated
here from Fort Myers, is still
accepting employment appli-
cations.
The store specializes in
household goods, selling
everything for the kitchen and
bath, as well as linens and
decorative home furnishings.
"We do odr best to get what
ever it is a customer wants,"
Short said.
Other stores are not as far
along.
At the Marshalls store,
which sells off-price clothing
and home accents, sub-con-
tractors were installing shelv-
ing. The company plans to
have the store open by
Thursday, Sept. 13.
In addition to its traditional
line, Marshalls is trying a new
concept, what the company
calls a Shoe MegaShop,
which will feature thousands


of designer shoes for the
whole family.
The Petco store swarmed
with sub-contractors finishing
the floor, but is otherwise
empty.
Trim work was being done
on the Books-A-Million store
and the Ross clothing store,
which both await shelving
and inventory.
Chris Funk, of Sign
Solutions in Orlando, was
installing the Books-A-
Million signage Thursday and
Friday.
Three of the 11 store fronts
remain empty.
A spokesman for Keene
Construction, the general con-
tractor, said his work should
be completed in three to four
weeks.
In the out parcel, a building
that will hold a Panera Bread
restaurant, a Mattress Giant,
and a Starbucks Coffee is still
being built out.
Panera Bread is closest to
finished, but the electricians
were still hard at work Friday.
Bill Mullins, who is oversee-
ing the inside work, said his
work is supposed to be com-
plcted by the end of the


month.
The ovens, bread slicers
and other equipment needed
are already on site.
James Wellington and 'Ken.
Hamilton, both electricians
with A-Lumination Inc., out
of Orlando, have been living
at the Quality Inn for the last
six months as they worked on
the project.
Wellington said that with
the ovens, walk-in coolers,
recessed lighting, and com-
puter outlets to install, the
Panera Bread job has been.
one of the most complicated
he has ever worked.
No opening dates for it, or
the Mattress Giant or
Starbucks, have been set at
this time.


BUS
Continued from 1A
and ship the popular orna-
mental plant.
Afterward, Ahnett bus
driver Frank Carney took the
group to see the nutrient-rich
fields that earned Lake Placid
the title "Caladium Capital of
the World."
Marie Oille and Carrol
Hembach came from The
Villages near Leesburg. It
was their first time to the fes-
tival, though both have driv-
en through Lake Placid
returning from the Keys.
They read about the festi-
val in their local newspaper,
and stayed at Camp Florida
for the weekend.
"I never knew there were
so many varieties," Oille
said, during a stop at Lake
Country Farms, off of County
Road 619.
Both women hail from
New Jersey originally, where
they had to dig up their cala-
diums and store them during
the winter.
"I'm surprised there',s only
13 families supplying the
whole world," Hembach said,
wondering aloud about who
supplies the remaining 10
percent.
During the stop at Lake
Country, the caladium
tourists had a chance to walk.
around the equipment, most,
of which is customized to
suit the unique and niche


needs of the growers,
explained Bates.
"Nobody has the same
planter," she said, explaining
even the equipment's names
change among the families.
Discussing a modified potato
sorter, she explained, "They
call it a bulb sizer. We call
ours a grater."
No two planters or cutters
are the same. Counting
machines are imported from
I-olland.
Of course, where there're
tractors painted John Deere
green there'll be men gath-
ered around sizing 'em up.
With everybody back on
the bus, Carney took them
east on County Road 621
past colorful rows of the
broad-leafed summer plants
arranged in fields resembling
a patchwork quilt.
"They don't look as nice as
the usually do," Bates said,
explaining the effects of a
continuing drought.
Caladiums originated in
the Amazon Basin in South
America, though Lake
Placid's varieties no longer
resemble their ancestors.
Somebody asked why the
festival is held in August,
when Florida is its hottest.
Bates said the labor inten-


preparing for the next season.
For their 150-acre opera-
tion, Bates employees about
25 people during harvesting
and 15 during the summer.
Planted in spring, the sum-
mer growing months allow
enough respite for three days
of craft booth browsing, fair
food eating and entertaining
exhibits.
Mike and Paula Adams
moved to Sebring last year.
He's a retired Wilmington;
Del., police officer.
"All I knew about Lake
Placid was the murals," Paula
Adams said, as the bus mean-
dered through the Waters
Edge subdivision, home to
the second and grand prize
winners for residential cala-
dium landscaping.
Mark Lavalle, a member of
the Manatee County River
Garden Club, came with
about 10 people. They spent
Friday in Lake Placid before
returning home in the
evening.
In the 10 years since he
last came to the festival, the
most significant change he
noticed was that the bus was
air conditioned.
"It's really neat seeing the
variety of hybrids," he said.
"It's a nice daytime trip."

TUFFImN IT
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley

Being a city kid, I had never
heard of extension agents before
moving to Highlands County.
And having heard of them, still
had no idea of what they did.
Being called agents, I thought
they might be to domesticated
livestock what game wardens are
to wild animals a quasi law
enforcement/environmental offi-
cer.
Of course, as many of you
already know, extension agents
are nothing of the sort being
teachers instead, providing con-
tinuing education on all manner
of agricultural issues and proce-
dures to individuals working in
the field..
Lindsey Fielder is a brand new,
faculty member at the Highlands
County extension office, having
graduated from the University of
Florida last spring with a degree
in animal science and agricultural
business. Her transition from stu-
dent to teacher was rapid, gradu-
ation propelling her from the
back of the class to the front. She
graduated on May 4, and was at
work on May 16.
Fielder, who grew up in
Clewiston, joins a staff that pro-
vides classes, workshops, demon-
strations and educational materi-
als on areas as diverse as suc-


News-Sun photos by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Extension classes aren't just for cow hands like Deray Arnold (left) who works for the Williamson Cattle Company in
Okeechobee. Roger McWaters and Brian Trimble (right) are both agriculture teachers at Okeechobee High School.
They plan on taking techniques learned at the presentation, back to their classrooms.


cessful fishing, bird monitoring,
and insect control; and services
like the master gardener program,
4-H, and the Florida AgSafe
Network.
The idea, the office's Web site
states, is to provide experts who
relate research findings to daily
life. Its stress, in other words, is
on the practical.
The actual national extension
service network was created
when Congress passed the Smith-
Lever Act of 1914.
Fifty years later, in 1964, the
University of Florida created its
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Science that currently administers
the extension program with sup-
port from the state and the coun-
ty, as well as the private sector.
For example, the Highlands
County Cattleman's Association
regularly surveys its members,
passing on their educational
needs and wants to the extension


office.
It is Fielder's job to provide
the classes and workshops, either
teaching herself or organizing an.
event and bringing in other
experts.
Recently, she traveled to
ranches teaching workers how to
palpate cows that is how to
examine them by feel to deter-
mine if they are pregnant.
And she arranged for a pro-
gram, held on Aug. 16th at the
Highlands County Ag-Civic
Center, teaching about beef quali-
ty assurance.
Because I only had time to
attend one event, and it wasn't
one that Fielder actually taught, I
was again in the role of observer.
But I found the session so
interesting and eye-opening that I
still looked forward to writing
about it anyway.

See TUFFLEY, page 11A


Lindsey Fielder is the newest
member of the Highlands
County extension office. She
specializes in beef production
and teaches classes, as well as
arranging for other experts to
present workshops, like the one
held Aug. 16 that taught about
maintaining beef quality assur-
ance.


Attitudes Dance

Studio expanding
Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Attitudes Dance
Studio is expanding again. The studio is
adding clogging to this year's class sched-
ule for something new and fun.
Charlene McCullough and Nancy
McIntyre from Avon Park have been
added to the staff. They have clogged in
Avon Park for many years and would like
to share their steps and passion with the
dancers at Attitudes.
Clogging is a form of tap dancing, but
with a little different style and technique.
It is great exercise for adults looking for
cardio and tons of fun for kids and
younger adults looking for a hobby. This
class is being offered for all ages, includ-
ing adults.
The studio has not set a day of the
week, time, or number of classes until the
response is determined for the different
ages.
The classes will start in October. Call
the studio at 699-5844 or drop by 1194
County Road 621 East in Lake Placid.



Riverside Bank

gives away new

Toyota Tundra
Special to the News-Sun
OKEECHOBEE Riverside Bank
announced the winner of the "Use Your
Debit Card to Win" contest, launched to
promote the use of the debit card "signa-
ture" option.
Choosing to sign for debit card transac-
tions rather than using a Personal
Identification Number (PIN) protects con-
sumers from "shoulder surfing," a prac-
tice in which identity thieves look over a
consumer's shoulder to steal access codes
and other personal information for unau-
thorized debit and credit card transac-
tions.
To encourage customers to take advan-
tage of this benefit, the bank entered cus-
tomers who chose the signature option
,into its "Use Your Debit' Card to Win"

Among the things ranch hands learned at a recent extension service class was how to properly inoculate a cow. An improper-
ly given injection can scar the meat at the site of the injection. It leaves a tough, discolored scar which has to be cut out,
reducing up-scale steak to lower priced stew meat.


TUFFLEY
Continued from 9A
Todd Thrift, who has a
doctorate in animal sciences
and is a professor at the
University of Florida, deliv-
ered the presentation, with
back up from Matt Hersom,
another doctorate and assis-
tant professor, and Max Irsik,
a veterinarian with the
University of Florida's exten-
sion service team.
Thrift got me thinking
right away. He pointed out
that the beef industry has a
systemic problem regarding
quality and control.
That is because most pro-
ducers Thrift used the
Nike company as an example
own their product from
beginning to end.
4 In other words, Nike
makes its shoes and has sole
control over them until they
are shipped to retailers to be
sold.
Beef, however, passes
through a series of owners,
and in different forms.
There are the ranchers and
dairymen who bred and raise
the steers and cows, the feed-
lots and backgrounders that
fatten them up, the packers
and processors who turn the
cattle and cows into beef, and
the retailers who get the beef
to the consumer.
"The system is segmented
and has uninformed duplica-
tion," Thrift-said.
This can produce problems
for an industry whose mis-
sion is to feed people a
healthy product to eat. The
system, he said, had to be
more than safe, it had to
appear safe as well. A panic
can do devastating damage
witness the recent Mad
Cow disease scares which

shut down whole markets to
American beef.
People are more concerned
today about the way animals
are handled, Thrift added.
Feed lots and especially
processors need to show the
cattle are handled humanely.
Thrift said that the industry
has been working, with the
help of research and support
from extension service cattle
specialists like himself,
Hersom and Irsik, to find
solutions. He added this was
an effort by the industry to
regulate itself voluntarily,
instead of waiting for more
state-mandated intervention.
The cattle industry learned
a lesson from the automotive
industry, Thrift said.
There, for years, the only
inspection was a final inspec-
tion, done at the end of the


line. But with the surge of
better made cars from Japan
in the early 1970's, automo-
tive companies realized they
would have to change how
they did business. Checking
automobiles at critical junc-
tures along the line, catching
potential problems before
they became real problems,
proved to improve quality.
Cattlemen are now adapt-
ing that policy, and recom-
mend inspections at critical
points in time throughout the
process. In other words, the
industry wants to establish
standards and performance
checks to insure the higher
standards are being met.
The system put in place
was adapted from safety
work the Pillsbury Company
did for NASA. After all,
Thrift said, food poisoning is

a very serious thing any-
where, but a catastrophe for
an astronaut in space, and
NASA's system has had a
100 percent success rate in
its over 40 year history,
which is why it became the
standard.
The only way to accom-
plish the goal of accountabil-
ity, Thrift added, was to doc-
ument every animal and
record its breeding and birth
information, inoculations and
medical procedures records,
the producer's name and
address, processing date, etc.
In the morning session the
individuals attending the
class were taught how to fill
a form, called a treatment
map, that lists all the above
information and more. By
uniformly accounting for
each and every animal's per-
sonal history, the industry
can prove its safety record,
and in the event of an emer-
gency, quickly pin point the
cause of a problem and fix it.
Better yet, might be able to
spot trouble and address it
before a problem results.
The class had a mix of
interested parties. Some were
cow hands from ranches,
some were high school agri-
culture teachers, and some
were young people looking
forward to a career in ranch-
ing.
And one was just an old
city kid, who having learned
about agents, hoped to learn
more about the steers he
looked forward to eating in
the future.

contest. Riverside Bank cus-
tomers who used their debit
cards between April 1 and
July 31 were automatically
entered into a drawing for a
2007 Toyota Tundra when
they signed their receipt to
complete the transaction.
"Forty-six percent of
Americans think an identity
thief could steal their pass-
word or other personal infor-
mation by shoulder surfing,"
said John Williams,
Riverside's president in
Highlands, Okeechobee, and
Polk counties.
"Yet a simple decision like
choosing the credit option and
signing for debit card pur-
chases can deter this kind of
identity theft. Riverside has
been holding debit card cam-
paigns twice each year for the
past several years with great
success." About 2.2 million
transactions and mail-in
applications were entered to
win the Toyota Tundra in this
most recent campaign.

It was one amazing summer


My summer did not go
exactly as I planned it, but it
was pretty awesome!
Between my internship, my
jobs, and my time spent with
friends, I learned so much
and I am very grateful for my
experience this summer.
This was my first experi-
ence 'as an intern and I was
privileged to spend 10 weeks
in Orlando at a television sta-
tion. I was so happy that I
got the internship that I did
not even think about how
large the Orlando market was
or that it is the tourism capi-
tal in the world!
I received first-hand expe-
rience in hard-core news. I
conducted several interviews
with viewers over the tele-
phone. I did research for the
reporters and producers and
sometimes I even went out
on assignments with the
reporters.


. On a few special occa-
sions, I was sent out on sto-
ries with my own photogra-
pher. Of course, it was not on
air; they did not pay me
enough for that. After I was
done with my assignment I
would just hand it over to a
paid reporter. I realize that I
did all the hard work and let
the reporters get all the cred-
it; but I did not mind because
for me it was a learning
experience.
My absolute favorite thing
to do was'sit on the set and
watch while the shows were
being broadcasted to the sur-
rounding counties. It is such
a major difference in watch-
ing at home and watching the
anchors, meteorologists, pro-
ducers and directors up close
and personal.
I got a few opportunities to
record my practice reporting.
I would sit in the same seat

that.the anchors sat in and
read the same script. It was
so amazing! Now instead of
watching them and saying
that is going to be me one
day, I watch my own tape
and see myself doing what
the professionals do.
Although my internship
was a wonderful experience
it was not the highlight of my
summer. Just a few weeks
ago I went to Las Vegas. I
did not think that it could be
any hotter than Florida but I

Church a place to congregate, not segregate


Church is the most segre-
gated environment in the
world. A place where color,
class, social standings, scrip-
tural presentations, music and
fellowship is dissected and
separated.
My sister and I were con-
versing over tea about the
proliferation of churches,
mini and mega churches and
the attitudes of those who
make up the body of Christ.
Our observation showed that
the pews of the mini church-
es are empty, stagnant in time
and can barely finance the
overheads. Meanwhile, the
new age mega-churches are
crammed to the rafters with
members.
Often times, churches are
defined as the "black
church," the "white church,"
the "Hispanic church," the
"Jamaican church," etc.
There are churches that are
forced to have separate serv-
ices to accommodate certain
members. Why? They are
unable to embrace the ser-
mons, age of members, music
and the lyrics to the praise
and worship songs.
Our churches are filled


with Pharisees who are criti-
cal of every factor. Nothing
is off limits, which includes
the pastor, elders, deacons,
choir and sermon. Why? Fire
and brimstone are not direct-
ed to fallen members, con-
demning them to hell. These
are the members who are
stagnant, unable to embrace
repentance, forgiveness and
love. Their attitude is as the
Bible describes "a sounding
brass and tinkling cymbal."
They fail to remember that
Christ came to save, not to
condemn.
Our churches are not
embracing intercultural and
interdenominational integra-
tion. Invitations to attend
special events are ignored.


But who needs an invitation
to join with others outside
our denomination to serve
God? Christ commissioned
us to "go out into all the
nations" to spread the gospel.
However, if we are unable to
carry out the commission in
our communities, how then
are we going to spread it
abroad?
We are forgetting what's
important, which is the sav-
ing of many lives.
When we begin to follow
biblical principles, there will
be transforming experiences,
lives and health will be
restored, families will be
reunited, debts will be repaid.
The attitude of our hearts
needs us to do an examina-
tion of ourselves, take.an
inventory of our actions con-
cerning spiritual growth and
spiritual living.
What's going to happen
when the day of judgment
comes, when all nations will
be brought before the cre-
ator? Will we be on one
accord, or will we be looking
around choosing who we
want to stand beside, who we
will sing with. ~'1 with what


group we want to share eter-
nity with?
A church acquired a new
pastor. He observed that there
were 'wo separate services
and questioned the rationale
of it since the church,
although multi-cultural, it's
members were all educated
and fluent in the English lan-
guage. Taking action, he
determined that dual services
were not necessary.
It's absolutely ridiculous
that we can mourn collective-
ly, celebrate collectively by
accepting invitations to
mourn at a funeral, celebrate
at a wedding, at a christen-
ing, at the games, in a bar,
yet have difficulty participat-
ing in fellowship to worship
God.

Beware of bad

commercials

I like watching television
sometimes. In fact, I'm sit-
ting on the couch at this
moment watching
"Mythbusters" while I write
this column.
For those who don't know
about this show,
"Mythbusters" is a show
where a group of people who
look like adults but act much
more like adolescents test
out various myths and urban
legends. The testing usually
involves causing some may-
hem of some kind. and the
hosts Jamie and Adam are
happiest when they are blow-
ing something up.
Anyway, while I like cer-
tain television shows (among
other things I'in an admitted
'Law and Order" addict) I've
been forced to notice that
television commercials
appear to be declining in
quality. And not just a little.
One of the series of com-
mercials that is making me
more nuts than usual are the
ones that address what I will
delicately refer to in this col-
umn as a "guy problem."
There are a number of drugs
out of there to deal with this
situation, and they advertise
with unsettling frequency.
There are a lot of awful
ones .to choose from in this
category but the one making
me cringe the most involves
a group of men destroying
Elvis Presley's song, "Viva
Las Vegas." by redoing it as
"Viva Viagra." I'm a fan of
parodies but please, this left

mother. Even at such a young
age she knew that her mom
was using drugs and living
,)n the streets. "I miss my
nom," she said. "I don't
know where she is. I hardly
ever get to see her." The little
giw was less than 10 years
olk
Biside her was her aged
grandmother looking tired
and worn. You could see the
stress she carried for her
family. Grandmothers were
never intended to replace
others. Yet many have no
choice. When grandchildren
are abandoned or become at
:isk, grandmothers often
become surrogates. It's heart-
breaking to see so many
women trade in motherhood
for a lifestyle that causes so
much pain to so many.
As for Debbie, she was
playing Russian roulette with
her life. Getting into cars
with perfect strangers, using
drugs, partying with people
who were diseased and dan-
gerous. She had been sup-
porting her habits however
she could. Time was running
out for her. I reached into my
purse and gave the little girl
a brochure for.Lydia's House.
'Give it to your mom," I told
her. "We will help her," I
promised.
Several weeks later her
nom did call. But Lydia's
House still wasn't opened.
Even though we had been
working on the building for
almost a year, we still needed
help finishing the work. The
property owner gave us a
hree-year free lease on the
building but one year of that
lease had been eaten up just
in bringing the property up to
code. The renovation was
valued at somewhere
between $150,000 and
S200,000 and still we weren't
open.
The ideal situation would
have been to purchase the
building outright. But we
. were starting at ground zero
without two pennies to rub
together. We knew" that we
had to start with whatever
was available to us at the
time. It turned out to be a
building that needed costly
repairs. Even for that we
Were thankful. It was at least
a starting point.
Since Lydia House wasn't
open, the only thing I knew
to do was to call Zella
Warren. Ms. Zella and her
husband have been faithfully
assisting me in ministry for
years. When I explained
Debbie's situation, the
Warrens were more than will-
ing to open their home to the
young woman. Within a few
days we found a program for

Debbie and she has since
been reunited with her chil-
dren. She is currently attend-
ing church and working a
full-time job. I am so proud
of her and hope that she will
continue making the right
choices.
Since then I have received
multiple phone calls from
women as far away as
Minnesota. I will never for-
gct the girl who was five
months pregnant living in her
car or the 18-year-old girl
who was in the county jail
asking the judge to send her
to prison because she had
nowhere else to go. She had
been in state custody since
she was 5 or 6 years old.
Lydia's House will be a
refuge for women coming out
of destructive lifestyles.
From the very beginning I
had wanted to open the home
to be beautiful. I wanted
something that onlyGod
could take credit for. I want-
ed a place wherewomen
knew they were loved despite
their circumstances. The
home would be a reflection
of the way the community
felt about the women. It
would be a local mission
field for all denominations. I
was determined not to charge
the women who would come
to Lydia's House or take gov-
ernment money that would
restrict us from teaching the
Bible. Everything would
depend on volunteers, dona-
tions and the good Lord.
If that wasn't impossible
enough I also knew we
would need to have enough
money to pay two staff mem-
bers. Our director, Rachel
Chapa, would run the pro-
gram and the house mother,
still to be named, would be
the full-time resident. I made
the choice not to receive pay
for my part in Lydia's House.
When I went public with
my vision I was not prepared
for the overwhelming support
from our community and sur-
rounding areas. The owner of
the property personally
assured me that he would not
take the building from us'at
the end of the three-year
lease. We discussed the great
need in our community and
he has been willing to help
us with our mission. We
appreciate his willingness to
allow us to use his property.
After spending years min-
istering to women I have
come to realize that we have
reached a place in society
where many are losing their
grip. Women need our help.
Secular programs seem to
offer little more than band-
aids on symptoms.
Medicating clients in hopes
of detouring bad behavior
has brought little if any
improvement. I truly believe


even got the opportunity to
take pictures with some pro-
fessionals such as Jackie
Reid, from BET Nightly
News; Victoria Rowell, from
The Young and The Restless
and Alfre Woodard, a well-
known actress.
I also got the chance to
see Barack Obama and
Hilary Clinton speak on their
respective platforms. It was


that only Jesus can heal the
brokenhearted and set the
captive free. Anything else is
temporal at best.
I realize that we will not
be able to take in every
woman or meet every need.
Lydia's House is not a drug
rehabilitation center or a
shelter for women. It is much
more. Lydia's House is a
Christian home/program
designed to help women suc-
cessfully transition back into
society. Our home will only
benefit those who have hit
bottom and are ready to make
a life changing commitment.
As we busy ourselves with
the finishing touches I would
like to invite you to stop by
and take a tour of the home
on North Florida Avenue in
Wauchula. Come and see, for
the Lord has done.
For those who believe that
a human life is a terrible
thing to waste, Lydia's House
is a local mission field.

are soon approaching, we

accountability and keep our

the area of good taste way behind.
And yes, I know television has spent years
running offensive.commercials regarding
female products. Those make me cringe as
well. Do advertisers want to gross us out?
Commercials involving medicines in gener-
al bug me. They tell people about how they
need to tell their doctors about these medi-
cines and blithely gloss over the side effects.
A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing.
I bet doctors hate these commercials.
In the non-medical commercial department,
Kia has been running a stupid ad for one of
their cars. It consists of some breathless guy
begging us to "save the greenbacks!"
"This one was overspent!" one guy whines
desperately as he cradles a worn dollar bill in
a towel. Oh, please. Give me a break. Even if
I were in the market for a new car at the
moment this cheesy thing would steer me
clear of their particular vehicle.

Lucky Charms weren't on that list. You can

You could make me believe that of chocolate,

is I think for some paper towels. Nope, I
don't remember what they're advertising. It
shows a mom doing dishes at the sink when
her little boy sneaks up behind her and sprays
her with a shook up bottle of orange soda.
Now, if one of my guys pulled that stunt,
and they had been that age, they would've
been punished. Spanked, maybe, or sent to
their rooms. Not this mom. She grabs the
sprayer from the sink and soaks him. They
play like this for a while and then mom
cleans up the mess quick as a wink.
Yeah, right. Kid sprays sticky soda all over
the kitchen and mom just laughs and makes a
bigger mess. Do you think kid does any of
the cleaning? I bet not. Mom was nice
enough to let him make a mess, you think
she'd make him clean it up?

Caldium Festival Fun


News-Sun photos by KATARA SIMMONS
Folks flocked from all over for the opening of the 17th annual Caldium Festival in Lake Placid on Friday. Linda
Leonard of Okeechobee (top left photo) purchased a wooden musical frog from Chris Colwell of Exotic Treasures in.
Dunedin, Chuck and Terry Doughten of Lakeland (top right photo) shared a smoothie as they stroll down Interlake
Boulevard, while Audrey James and Jean Rasmussen of Melbourne (bottom left photo) enjoyed dancing to the live
music. But it wasn't all fun and games, some folks had to work, like Carlos Resendiz of Bates Sons & Daughters
Caladiums (bottom left photo) who was arranging potted caladiums. Resendiz said they have close to 5,000 caladium
plants on site during the festival, which ends this afternoon.

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop

God's direct

responses
Ken and I longed to raise
our boys in faith and have
our family represent the
Lord in the way he intended
for families to do. And, so,
we prayed accordingly and
took action.
We went to Sunday
school and church; took the
boys to Boys'.Brigade at
our church; had family
devotions and prayed
together. And though our
actions were motivated
from a desire to please God,
it would be the unexpected
that would develop in us
hearts that responded with
faith.
We didn't recognize his
hand at first. So we cried
out,"Why?" when the domi-
noes began falling: Ken's
deteriorating health from
asthma; inability to work
for a time; depletion of our
savings and no immediate
answers to reverse these
adverse circumstances.
But, it was through these
unsettling circumstances
that God was answering our
prayer to be a household of
faith. Our response would
either teach our sons dis-
contentment and faithless-
ness; or, how to trust God
and see his blessings in the
midst of the storms of life.
Our activities of faith
needed to continue, but our
response to the trials would
demonstrate the practical
application of our faith. We
didn't do it perfectly as it
was a growing experience
for all of us.
But, little by little,as
God tested our metal, he
proved his faithfulness. We
turned hardship into adven-
ture and received his bless-
ings with thanksgiving and
grace. And we developed
the habit of praising God
through the trial so that he
would be able to use us to
help others.
Together as a family, we
learned the truth of 2
Corinthians 1: 3, NIV,
which says, "Praise be to
the God and Father of our
Lord Jesus Christ, the
Father of compassion and
the God of all comfort, who
comforts us in all our trou-
bles, so that we can comfort
those in any trouble with
the comfort we ourselves
have received from God."
It reminds me of the
story in the Old Testament
of Isaiah who sees the
Lord's splendor and cries
out that he is a man of
unclean lips and dwells in
the midst of a people of
unclean lips.
God's response is specif-
ic. An angel takes a live
coal from the altar and
touches Isaiah's mouth with
it taking away his sin. He
would have touched his
eyes, mind, feet or hands
had that been his cry.
God's precise answers
should cause us to respond
like Isaiah when God asks,
"Who will go for Us?"
Isaiah's response, "Here ,
am I! Send me," shows
how his salvation created a
willingness to serve his


God.
We, too, should be ves-
sels through whom God's
comfort will overflow to
others. Selah

S Proverbs 13:20, "He that
1a .alketh with wise men
shall be wise: but a
companion offools shall be
destroyed." We have four
kinds of people in our lives,
those who add, subtract,
divide, or multiply. Every relationship you
have will affect you one way or another
For good or for bad. If your life is not
being increased by the relationship, you
can be sure it is decreasing. Your
relationship will add strength or weakness
within you. Read the above scripture. You
have a gift within you that someone else
need today. Ask yourself what is that gift?
Whose life can I increase or multiply? You
are the thread that complete the garment in
someones life. There.is someone out there
who has been waiting for you for a lifetime.
You are here to make a positive deposit in
someone else lite. Don't let the moment to
change someones ife: slip away. Today
could be the day. Don't let the moment slip
away. Be Blessed! -Patra

Proper disposal of unwanted prescription meds important for a healthy environment


Many people have
prescription medica-

house that are either
expired, no longer
necessary or may
have belonged to
someone else.
Whatever the reason,
it is extremely
important to follow
proper safety proce-
dures in disposing of
these unwanted phar-
maceuticals. Many of
these medications cont
ingredients that may ha

pounds are called micr

The new federal prescrip-

urge Americans to:
Take unused, unneeded,

\* Mix the prescription
drugs with an undesirable
substance, like used coffee
grounds or kitty litter, and
put them in impermeable,
non-descript containers, such


as empty, cans or sealable
bags, further ensuring that
the drugs are not diverted or
accidentally ingested by chil-
dren or pets.
Throw these containers
in the trash.
Flush prescription drugs
down the toilet only if the
accompanying patient infor-
mation specifically instructs
it is safe to do so.
Return unused, unneed-

drugs to pharmaceutical
take-back locations that
allow the public to bring
unused drugs to a central
location for safe disposal.
The new guidelines, which
go into effect immediately,
will both help prevent abuse

'Once Upon a Mattress' will leave HLT patrons happy ever after


For the last play of
Highlands Little Theatre's
33rd season, which is now
the 152nd play presented by
HLT, director Peter Pollard
chose to reprise one of his
favorite musicals, "Once
Upon A Mattress," that he
presented 22 years ago, in
August 1985 at the Lakeside
Playhouse, but on a much
smaller stage. The music for
the 1959 Broadway show was
written by Mary Rodgers, the
daughter of Richard Rodgers
of Rodgers and Hammerstein
fame and was the show that
introduced Carol Burnett to
New York audiences .
"Once Upon A Mattress" is
a quirky retelling of Hans
Christian Andersen's fairy
tale "The Princess and the
Pea." The story takes place in
a small kingdom in the year


1428. The deliciously domi-
neering Queen Aggravain
(Tammie Pollard) rules the
land and controls her teenage
son, the vocally harmonious
and cheerful Prince Dauntless
(Stephen Gercken), and her
husband, King Sextimus the
Silent (Art Harriman), who
mimes his way through this
fractured fairy tale.
Although the prince is of
age to marry, the Queen has
devised tests impossible for
each potential mate to pass.
No one else in the kingdom
is permitted to marry until
Prince Dauntless has wed,
and this is especially upset-
ting to Sir Harry versatilee
Christopher Hayes) and Lady
Larkin (unfortunate Amanda
Hanson), who are secretly
expecting a child. However,
when Sir Harry leaves in


Theatre
Review
Roy Riedy
search of a woman who will
pass the test and returns with
Princess Winnifred (charming
Jenny Rowe), a rough,
brazen, yet attractive young
lady, to vie for the hand of
the Prince, the kingdom has
hope. With the help of the
King, the Minstrel (skillful
Josh McGhee), the Jester
(dedicated Cameron Reck),
and The Wizard (melodious
Larry McCandless), Princess
"Fred" is able to pass the test
and a happy ending occurs
for almost all involved.
"Once Upon A Mattress"
provides a large central role
in Winnifred and requires an
actress with a strong singing


voice, precise comic wit, and
lots of energy. Miss Rowe
meets all of these necessities
and more. She possesses a
large amount of spunk and a
confident voice, and delivers
her lines with great humor.
Stephen Gercken is also very
effective as the naive and
bashful Prince Dauntless.
Both young actors show great
promise for many more HLT
successes.
Ashley Hoffner made her
debut on the Lakeside
Playhouse stage as "Princess
12" in this production, as did
three new actors: Jeremy
Berish as Sir Studley, Dustin
Epling as a Knight, and
Donald Newby as one of the
Queen's Guards.
The rest of the supporting
cast of Ladies In Waiting,
Ballet Dancers, Guards,


Squires, Wenches, and Pages
include: Tiffany Elliott,
Bethany Finney, Daniel
Finney, Jonathan Finney,
Moriah Finney, Glenn
Fowler, Leah Grecko, Tara
Henderson, Timothy Johnson,
Heather Lemos, Jill Lockhart,
Sarah Sager, and Brook
Shaffer.
Pollard's assistant director
is Mike McMillian, his pro-
'ducer is Kristin Taylor and.
the show's music directors
are Tracy Schknecht and
Nellie Guzman. The choreog-
raphy is by Jenny Rowe.
Steve McDaniel is the stage
manager and the lighting
design is by Frank
Oberhausen. Helen Curcio is
the costume designer. The set
design is by Pete Pollard and
Don Newby, who is also
responsible for the set art


with Alvin Moore.
The lighting technicians
are Heidi Hoffman and Janet
Waldron. The wardrobe assis-
tants are Tracy Carrera,
Barbara Flemming, June
Gates, Jackie Koza, Lindsay
Lynch, Denise Miriani, and
Barbara Sylvester. The stage
crew includes Dan Feathers,
Tony Ford, Johathan Rivard,
Michael Smith and cast mem-
bers. The set construction
was done by the entire cast.
"Once Upon A Mattress" is
a beautifully lit show with
stunning costumes and an
impressive set and well per-
formed by a gifted cast. The
musical continues through
Sunday, Sept. 2. For tickets,
call (863) 382-2525 or visit

Dragons scorch Chargers in kickoff classic


News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE
Chevontray Williams tries to keep ahead of the pack on this punt return, one of a few long-
gainers for the junior running back in Lake Placid's 21-0 Kick-Off Classic win over visiting
Liberty.


By DANIEL HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID -
Christmas came early in Lake
Placid, as first-year head
coach Tim Grant's squad shut
out the visiting Liberty
Chargers, 21-0, in the Kick-
Off Classic Friday night.
"I didn't sleep well at all
last night, like a kid on
Christmas Eve, I was so excit-
ed," Grant said. "And it feels
so great right now, I got my
present."
Coming off a 3-7 campaign
last year, with the new head
coach and system in place, the
cloudy night somewhat sym-
bolized the uncertainty there
might have been before game
time.
But that was soon
answered, as an intense and
active Green Dragon defense
got to it right off the bat.
Kicking to the Chargers to
bpen the game, the kickoff
team blasted the Liberty
return man, forcing a fumble
that they quickly pounced
upon to immediately take
over possession just 36 yards
away from the end zone.
The offense had a little


Harder time getting started,
however, as four plays
advanced the ball seven yards
before Liberty got it back on
downs.
A quick-strike 20-yard pass
from Charger quarterback
Tremaine Tyler to Mike Webb
and 9-yard run from Brandon
Lake Placid Wilson got
Liberty into
Lake Placid
21 territory,- but
Liberty the defense
stepped up and
held them right
there, soon
forcing a punt.
Similarly, the Dragons
struck quick early on the next
possession with Conlin Veley
Connecting with Wilson for 30
yards and Wilson then gaining
nine on the ground.
But an incomplete pass and
a fumble ended that drive.
By. now the Lake Placid
defense was in full attack
mode against the somewhat
larger Chargers.
"They had some big boys
out there," Grant said. "But
we told them, if you just play
hard, hit them hard, it will all
even out."


Three plays gained two
yards and another punt
ensued, with Wilson cor-
ralling it and setting off
through the Liberty special
teams to bring it all the way to
the Charger 30.
A face-mask penalty
brought it even further, set-
ting the Dragons up at the
Liberty 15.
But the Charger defense
held the line and soon took
over on downs.
Fumbles ended the next
possession for each team,
then downs for Lake Placid
and another fumble by
Liberty near the end of the
opening quarter got 'the ball
back in the Dragons hands at
the Charger 28.
Short passes to Wilson and
Jonathan Simmons moved it
closer along with yard chew-
ing runs from Veley and
Wilson drew them even closer
before.Veley swept around the
left end to put the first points
on the board at 8:39 of the
second quarter.
Six minutes later and the
Dragons crossed the goal line

Field position, penalties plague Red Devils


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE WALES Ta kin
full advantage of field posi-
tion and excessive penalties,
Lake Wales Highlanders'
rolled over Avon Park 39-0 on
Friday night at Legion Field.
Lake Wales' running back
James Norwood's huiclean
effort certainly gave the
Devils trouble on the ground
With 35 yards rushing in just
the first half.
"We are a young team, and
Lake Wales was well'
coached," Red Devil head
coach Earnest Perkins said.
"You might say they took us
to the woodshed."
"We are definitely going to
have to research, redo, and
rebuild." he added.
The offense for the
Red Devils seemed a Lake
little confused several
times during the first 1
half, but came back the
Avon
second half with a lit- Avon
tle more confidence.
Racking up 30 yards (
in penalties in the first
two quarters from delay of
game and false starts, the
Avon Park team left the field
down 23-0 at the half.
Overall, the Red. Devils
would have 14 penalties.
Norwood's steady ground-
eating set up a Jared Davis to
Bryon Ward 10 yard touch-
down pass with four minutes
left in the first quarter.
Which brought kicker
Maikon Bonani on the field
for the extra-point and he
stayed to 'place the ball into
the endzone for the following
kick off, not giving the Red
Devils a chance to return any
of his kick-offs the rest of the
night.
Avon Park continued to
struggle for the rest of the half

and a short punt left the Lake
Wales team in good position
for their next score.
Again the job went to
Norwood to pound the ball
into position for a score. This
time a 38 yard field goal by
Bonani.
At the end of the first-half,
Avon Park had again failed to
move the ball out of range of
Norwood's relentless short
gains, allowing him to score
on third-and-goal with just
three yards.
The point after was
good as well as
Bonani's golden leg
Park took the Highlanders to
a 17-0 lead with six
minutes left in the half.
Another kick out of
the end zone and a
short run resulted in another
short punt that left the Lake
Wales team again in good
field position.
A few runs later by
Norwood, and Bonani was
again called out onto the field
for a 45-yard field goal with
plenty to spare.
One more repeat perform-
ance by both teams left the
score at 23-0 at the half.
Coming outthe second
half, the Devils showed a lit-
tle promise and some ability,
but were again plagued by
penalties and short punts.
The onside kick recovery
by Avof Park lifted some of
the hopes, but the Lake Wales
defense again shut the Devils

Holding their own, Avon
Park's Marvin Breedlbve
slowed- the Highlander's
advance with a spectacular
sack.
Not to be outdone, the
Devils' own Virgil Cooper
slapped down a pass on the
next play forcing Lake Wales
to punt.
But the Red Devils were
unable to capitalize on the
field position, and soon turned
the ball back over to the steady
Highlander march.
Norwood's effort set up a
one yard touch down by quar-
terback Ryne Knuth on a
keeper with just one minute
left in the third quarter.
Again Bonnani easily
nailed the extra-point, bring-


ing-the score to 33-0.

quarterback Justin Shafer the
score on a roll out to the weak
side.
With the score now 39-0,
Avon Park rallied to block the
extra-point, but it was too lit-

"We have some good play-
ers out there," commented
Perkins near the end of the
game. "We just have some
growing to do. They know
now that they've got to dig

Streaks inexperience

shows in loss at Snake Pit


By JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun Correspondent
TITUSVILLE --- The
Sebring and Space Coast
football teams spent most
of the first half Friday night
reminding their fans that
the game was of the pre-
season variety, but then the
Snakes got their ground
game going and ran away
with a 25-8 victory to win
the Fall Classic. "
The start of the game was
delayed 30 minutes because
of nearby lightning and
finally got underway
around 8 p.m. under a light
rain in the Snake Pit.
Running back Dustin
Bryant found some holes in
Sebring's defense in the
second half and finished
with 174 yards and three
touchdowns to fuel the win.
SBut mostly, the game was
marred by mistakes, featur-
ing five bad snaps on punts,
seven fumbles and
mediocre passing.
Despite a score-
less first half, the Space
Blue Streaks domi-
nated the first two
quarters but could
not capitalize on Seb
two drives inside |
the Snakes 12-yard
line.
Antoine Smith
recovered a fumble on the
Space Coast 25, but Steven
Fortner's pass was inter-
cepted on the first play
from scrimmage.
On the first play of the
second period, quarterback
Jamarle Fletcher hooked up
with Ronnie Brassell for 15
yards on fourth-and-5 from
the Space Coast 20.
Set up with a second-
and-goal on the 2, Sebring
fumbled away the football
on the next play and then
punted away its final pos-
session of the first half after
gaining a first down on a
15-yard run by Daniel
Burnett.
The Blue Streaks
received the opening kick-
off of the second half, get-
ting the ball on their own
45 following a 15-yard per-
sonal foul on the Snakes.
On the third play of the
drive. Fletcher flipped a
short pass to fullback Ricky

sure what we would see
from him since he didn't

The Snakes fumbled the
ensuing kickoff, but the
Streaks gave the ball back
with another bad snap on
the punt attempt.
Andre Edwards scored on
the fourth play when he
took a counter 23 yards into
the end zone to the game at

violence; it is opening a door to building

Continued from 1D
off, as my legs enjoyed not
moving. Thoughts of sitting
down, even laying down,
crept upon me like a slow
fog enveloping a seaside
town.
'Maybe I'll wake up in a
few hours and finish the
ride,' I thought to myself.
'Maybe, I'll spend the night
here.'

'Maybe I'll wake

up in a few hours

and finish the

ride. Maybe I'll

spend the night

here.'

An hour seemingly passed
since I dismounted the bike.
But, when Kenny rolled up
to my point of no return,
only a few minutes had
expired.
And, so it is with group
rides in Highlands County,
when you're down and out or
new and not familiar with the
routes nor accustomed to the
pace, somebody will stay
with you, wait for you, or
come back for you.
More often than not, that
person is Kenny.
He rode with me to the
BMX track in Avon Park,
sometimes pouring what felt
like ice-cold water over my
head to cool my core.
Kenny continued to his
home in Avon Park, and I
rode a mile or so to Park
Elementary, where Earl,
James and Matthew waited.
It was their turn to baby-sit
me, holding my hand until I
safely arrived home in
Sebring.
Safely home, I tried sleep-
ing on a towel on the floor.
The shower could wait.
My cramping legs would-
n't allow it.
Instead, I stared at the ceil-


ing as a drank a variety of
concoctions designed to help:
me re-hydrate and restore
electrolytes.
I assessed my day, licked
my wounds and vowed to not
let another like it happen.
But,.I've been there and
done all three before. And, it
still happens.
The lessons learned (but'
obviously not implemented)
ranged from proper manage-
ment of fluids and calories to
mental and physical pre-
paredness.
I had changed my intake of
energy and endurance drinks,
which by, definition are not
one and the same.
Also, I had gone to bed
that Saturday with a shorter,
less hilly ride in mind.
Given the opportunity to
turn back at Babson Park, 1
succumbed to peer pressure
and forged ahead to Lake
Wales.
The irony, is that the pres-
sure was exerted by me.
I was the lead man in our
group when we rode up to the
BP in Babson.
I wasn't first because I was
strongest that day (the con-
trary would soon be proven)
but because I was the heavi-
est, and my 205 pounds and
Aeroo" position ensured I was
first down the long hill on
State Road 17.
Ray and Todd turned
around, smartly.
I continued on, dragging
with me the guys who would
eventually drag me'home.
I bit off more than I could
chew, and in the end it was-
n't just I who paid for it -
my friends' rides were
slowed by my progress.
But, they stuck with me as
morning became noon, then
afternoon and the tempera-
ture shot into the 90s.
Thank you, guys, for your
perseverance and patience.
Please accept my apology.

Skateboarders come to Sebring


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING The Sebring
skateboard park hosted a
regional tournament on Aug.
18 that drew skaters from all
over central Florida, but light-
ing difficulties kept some
from even competing.
"It was a great turnout, but
unfortunately we didn't get to
finish the event," said Frank
Branca organizer and owner
of Gator Board Shop, also
located in Sebring.
"The lights went out at 9:10
p.m., and we were in the mid-
dle of the second heat of the
16-and-up Division. We could
not get them turned back on to
finish," explained Branca. "It
was disappointing to stand
there in the dark and see an
empty tennis court across the
street with the lights on."
Preceded by a BBQ and
skating demonstration, about
60 competitors from as far
away as Tampa showed up to
compete for trophies and
prizes. According to Branca,
over 300 spectators lined the
fences and stands.
The registrants were split
into divisions by age, and
each competitor got two one-
minute runs, or heats, to show
their stuff to the panel of
judges.
Each heat was then scored
based on performance, com-
plexity, and skill.
Also scheduled to happen,
but had to be postponed, was


the Highest Ollie and Best
Trick events.
An Ollie, the skateboarding
trick invented by Alan "Ollie"
Gelfand, is where skaters
push down hard on their
boards and then jump, trailing
the board with them some-
times the board is flipped or
rotated as the skater jumps. *
The competitor who gets
his skateboard the highest off
the ground wins.
In this case the top prize-
getter would receive a $100.
The Best Trick event is a
freestyle competition where
skaters had one minute to per-
form a series of tricks.
Judges would then select a
winner based on complexity
and performance.
Here, $100 and other prizes
was to be rewarded for the top
spot.
Winners of the 12-and-
under Division included:
First place, Brett Brinkman;
second place, Roberto
Jimenez; third place,
Christian Kitzmiller; fourth
place, 6-year-old Jadon
Bareno; fifth place,
Christopher Stephens.
In the 13-to-15 Division
first place was taken by David
Kennedy, second place was
Josh Kaltner and at the third
place position was Luis Perez.
Fourth and fifth places
were Chris Sox and Josh
Jones, respectively.
Although cut short, the

judges and Branca decided to
award the winners of the 16-
and-up Division based on
scores from the first heat.
First place was awarded to
Wil Hutchinson, scoring sec-
ond was James Hoffer.
Taking the third spot was
Ty Toscano, with Patrick
Seasar at fourth and Pat
Eisenhower rounding out the
top five.
"Although several skaters
felt that their first heat was
not the best, we decided to


end it there because we had to
award prizes in the dark."
said Branca.
The 15 competitors regis-
tered for the Sponsor Division
have to wait for another day
to compete.
"We have to reschedule the
Sponsor Division, the Ollie
and Best Trick events, but we
have to get permission to use
the park again from the city
first," said Branca. "I am sure
that most of the guys can
return to finish up."

Frank Whidden carded a 79
to lead the eighth flight.
Mark and Ralph Spano are
leading the ninth flight after
one round with a 79.
Sunday's slate has all the
golfers playing in a two-man
scramble format, meaning the
scores can really come down
and the leader board is likely
to change quite a bit.
Check the Wednesday,
August 29 edition of the
News-Sun for photos and the
final results of the tourna-
ment.

Lady Panthers fall in


season opener to Falcons


Special to the News-Sun
The South Florida
Community College Lady
Panthers opened their season
Friday night, traveling to
Temple Terrace to face the
Florida College Lady Falcons,
and "right off ,the bat SFCC.
showed this season has the
potential to be an exciting one.
With seven blocks and 11
kills in the first game,.the Lady
Panthers came out strong..
But the Falcons held their
own, making for a back-and-
forth, edge-of-your-seat open-
ing game as they held on for a
34-32 nail-biting win.
With the home crowd
charged up and the enthusiasm
awash over the gym, the
Falcons rode the momentum to
a 30-22 second-game win
before completing the sweep
with a 30-18 finale.
And although the night didn't
,end up quite the way the team'
would have hoped, there were
- bight spots to be seen.
Sophomores Amy
Birkemeier and Michele


Amy Birkemeier.
Remlinger spearheaded the
Panther offense with 12 and
seven kills, respectively.
Birkemeier also added three
aces and Remlinger proved a
defensive force with seven
- blocks.
"The team showed great
effort and hustle throughout the
match," head coach Kim
Crawford said. "But on
Monday .e will havto focus
on hitter coverage and serve
receive."


Michele Remlinger
And so the results weren't
what was hoped for, but the cor-
rections are known.
The next litmus test for the
Lady Panthers' progress will be
Tuesday at Indian River
Community College before the
team hosts its' first game
Tuesday, Sept. 4, in a rematch
with the Falcons at Panther
Gym.
Home games start at 7 p.m.
with no admission charged.

PLACID
Continued from 1D
again, with Veley connecting
with freshman Richard Rooks
on a 6-yard touchdown pass,
giving Lake Placid a 14-0
lead at the half.
The opening possession of
the second half saw the
Dragons move the ball well to
start, but not quite sustaining
it before giving it over on
downs.
The defense held again and
got the ball back in Charger
territory at the 47 yard line.
From there, Wilson gained
23 yards on three carries,
Veley another 16 on a run
before Rashaad Brown bulled
in from eight yards out with
3:51 left in the third quarter.
From there, the Chargers
bent but couldn't break the
Dragon defense and soon
enough, Veley was taking
knees to run out the clock on
the season-opening victory.
"The kids really played
hard the whole night," Grant
said. "There are still some
adjustments we need to make,
we need to work on our tim-
ing a bit, but there's no place
I'd rather be right now."
"The athletic director
(Cindy Rivers) came up to me
after and said, 'Lake Placid is
proud tonight,'" he contin-
ued. "I'll sleep well tonight,
but I'll be up early getting
ready for next week."
Which will bring John
Carroll High School into
town for a Friday night show-
down as the year of the
Green Dragon continues.


News-Sun photos by DAN HOEHNE
The Lake Placid defense was tough and opportunistic all night as seen by Travalier Sholtz
(#70) stuffing Malcome Ray (#12) and knocking the ball loose before he and teammates
Jonathan Simons (#33) and Demetrius Williams (#28) pounce for the fumble recovery.

STREAKS
Continued from 1D
2:07 to go in the third.
The Streaks' next posses-
sion ended with an intercep-
tion, setting the Snake offense
70 yards away.
Bryant shook loose on
another counter for a 30-yard
TD romp on the second play
of the drive and led 19-6 with
:44 left in the third period.
Sebring again punted, this
time a 40 yarder by McGee.
Bryant capped the seven-play,
71-yard drive with a 37-yard
TD run to open up a 25-6
lead.
Following a booming 52-
yard punt by McGee over
every Snakes' head that
pinned them on the 2, the


home team elected to take a
safety with 5:29 to go to end
game scoring.
For the game, Space Coast
amassed 292 total yards (14
passing) and Sebring had 120
total yards of offense (66
yards rushing).
Overall the Sebring defense
played well considering all
the miscues and a lack of
offensive consistency.
"We have lots of work to do
and our youthfulness
showed," Hamlin said. "We
did see some good things,
Antoine Smith was really
physical at cornerback, but
we, are very inexperienced
and this game showed us
that."
Sebring opens the regular
season this Friday night at
Martin County High School.
