Youth


told to


'seize the


moment'

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssiun.com
AVON PARK The
Highlands County Sheriff's Office
and the Children's Services
Foundation brought a motivation-
al speaker into all of the county's
middle and high schools this
week, finishing up with a presen-
tation at the Avon Park Youth
Academy.
Jerry Paulsen, who works out of
Chicago, is a retired police inves-
tigator and former member of the
army's special forces.
He founded his own company,
Paulsen Productions, in 1994 to
design and conduct professional
development seminars for adults
and motivational presentations for
children. He has spoken all over
the world and throughout the
United States..
His theme this week centered
on "seizing the moment" and
maintaining a positive attitude.
"Life doesn't always take us
down the road we expect," he said
to his audiences, "and some
bumps are bigger than others."
He emphasized that mental
motivation is one of the keys to
success, another is welcoming
help from those around you.
He told the children to plan,
prepare and practice. And that
when things don't go the way they
expected, don't immediately quit
or say can't before evaluating the
situation.
When n, set back occurs, he said,
learn to adapt, adjust, improvise
and overcome.
This is exactly what the
Children's Services Foundation is
trying to do regarding the disap-
pointing lack of interest in the We

Mini-ecosystems grow into big learning


opportunities in Park Elementary class


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING
"Look, Ms. Crout, my butter- :
fly hatched!"
That was the reaction of a
very excited fifth-grade student
at Park Elementary School.'The
class has been raising many vari-
eties of butterflies and moths as
part of an exciting science proj-
ect going on in their classroom.
Each student in the class has
their own mini-ecosystem, com-
plete with a larva or caterpillar,
food fodder, and a stick for the
creature inside to climb upon.
Each ecosystem is a large
glass jar with a piece of wedding
veil netting cut and held to the
top of the jar with a rubber band.
New food is added to the jar for
the critter to eat every day. As
the caterpillar grows, it gets fat-
ter and bigger, as does the stu-
dent's interest in what is happen-
ing in their mini-ecosystem.


"The first thing students do,"
teacher JoLynne Crout said, "is
run into the classroom to check'
their jars to see if they have a
caterpillar that has metamorphed
into a chrysalis or if the pupa
has become a butterfly."
Students learn from reference
books to see what kind of larva
they have in their jars, ask ques-


tions that show their interest in
the subject and learn daily the
life cycle process of a real living
thing.
Crout's room is dawned with
several terrariums and containers
with frogs, toads, snails, insects,
spiders and geckoes. "We even
hatched three of our own gecko
eggs. We have our own babies
we watch and feed every day,"
Crout said.
"Having this kind of ongoing
project helps students to be curi-
ous and ask lots of good ques-
tions. From those questions
stems an interest, and that inter-
est gets students to read and
explore new things. Answering
their questions and concerns is
what learning is all about."
So far the class has raised
many varieties of butterflies and
moths. They have hatched 10
Buckeyes, 12 Gulf Fritillaries,

Snipe season:

Code enforcers

hunt signs of

offenders
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
AVON PARK Standing on a
Highlands County pickup, April Hartseil
twisted on, tugged at and tore away a sign
offering money for live turtles.
Lower on the utility pole, she removed a
bill advertising a professional wrestling
match .Saturday.
"I haven't seen a sign for turtles
before," Code Enforcement Officer
Beverly Singley said,.taking the "snipe"
signs from Hartseil, also from code
enforcement.
Snipe signs are found illegally placed
between roads, highways and private
property. They can be stuck in the ground
on a stake or wire frame, or glued, tacked,
stapled, tied or otherwise bound to utility
poles, traffic signs and the like.
They're illegal.
Individuals having a yard sale, busi-
nesses having a blowout clearance,. real
estate agents selling homes and politicians
seeking office are the usual suspects.
Code enforcement officers from Avon
Park, Sebring, Lake Placid and the county
teamed up Saturday during a statewide
snipe hunt to eradicate the predatory sig-
nage.
By noon, they had removed 792 signs
507 by the county, 175 in Sebring, 35
by Lake Placid, and Avon Park, 25 and
deposited them at the county barn on
George Boulevard.
Sebring Code Officer Bobby Hicks said
his two-man team moved an additional 50

to 3 p.m. Saturday.

Early voting to be offered in Avon Park election


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Residents
in the City of Charm will have
a couple of opportunities to
cast their votes before elec-
tion day in the upcoming
municipal election, however,
the idea of setting more strin-
gent residency requirements
will take a bit longer.
Council members decided
to offer citizens the opportu-
nity to vote for a week before
the established election day of
Nov 6. The ballots will be
offered at city hall between
the hours of 10 a.m. and 2
p.m.
"Because this is for the city,
we can hold hours shorter
than the eight hours mandated
for the county," city clerk
Sarah Adelt said. She
explained that using shorter
hours, it would come at no
additional cost to the city.

Four charged in

car burglaries

By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING The two final
suspects in a range of car bur-
glaries were in custody
Thursday after being appre-
hended by the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office.
Nicole Brown, 18 of
Lorida, and James Joshua
Flemming, 19, of Sebring,
were charged
with their
involvement
in several
vehicle bur-
glaries at
numerous
Brown automobile
dealerships
within the
Alan Jay
Automotive
. Network dat-
ing back to
S late January
and early
Feliciano February.
Based on
% intelligence
and past case
Files the two
,:- d" were devel-
oped as sus-
pects in the
"'" ', i burglary, as
JJ. RFlemming well as sever-
al others,
Officer
Robert Burch
wrote in his
report.
In late
February a
warrant was
J.M. Flemming obtained to
search a resi-
dence where the two were liv-
ing at the time. The property
and surrounding wooded area
was discovered to contain
various car stereos, speakers
and other automotive acces-
sories, the report said.
The others already arrested
for their involvement were
James Michael Flemming and
Eliezer Feliciano.
Brown allegedly acted as
the driver, transporting
Michael, Joshua and
Feliciano to the sites, which
included BuckEye Automo-
tive and Wrecker impound
yard, Alan Jay Chevrolet and
Alan Jay Ford.
During the burglaries the
defendants were targeting
vehicles containing aftermar-
ket equipment, a report said.
One of the men would
work as a lookout during
numerous break-ins, while
two others would steal the
equipment from the vehicles.
Altogether more than 10
vehicles were burglarized,
including seven at. the
impound yard. During the
Buck Eye burglary a golf cart
was allegedly crashed into a
security fence surrounding


Macklin pointed out that resi-
dents already had the ability
for early voting through the
absentee ballot. He suggested
the limited hours and one
week time frame might add
confusion to the process.
"We wouldn't have to
worry about city staff having
to do more jobs than they
already are doing and as we
know their plates are always
full," he said.
They also moved toward
sending the voters an amend-
ment that would require a
minimum six-month residen-
cy in the city prior to being
eligible to qualify for the
mayor's post or a council seat.
In a memorandum from city
attorney Gerald Buhr, he
noted that the council had an
interest in establishing such a
provision to ensure that
potential candidates has ade-
quate time to become familiar
with the special needs of the


community.
"Six months seems to be a
pretty safe number, although
you could possibly justify up
to a year if you felt that was
necessary," he said.
He said longer terms had
been thrown out by the courts,
noting that the longer the pro-
posed tenure, the less the
courts were willing to consid-
er them.
Councilman Joe Wright
called for dealing with the
residency issue in a more
comprehensive manner, not
only dealing with those run-
ning for election but also sit-
ting council members who
may, or may not, have lived
within the city limits.
"I guess it's all in how you
define residency," he said.
However, exactly what con-
stitutes residency was a
thornier question.
"The law, as it stands now,


is that you have to be resident
of the city to be a candidate
and you have to be a resident
in order to continue," Buhr
said.
He said the way to deter-
mine what residency means
probably would be through a
court case.
"The council could bring a
case against one of its own, or
an individual could do it as
long as they had standing," he
explained.
Buhr said there was "a lot
of case law" regarding the
issue of residency. He
explained the term is an inter-
pretation on what people are
doing based on such things as
what acts they were perform-
ing to maintain their residence
within the specified district.
"Residency is not like a
switch; you flip it on and
there it is, you flip it off and
it's no longer there," he said.


Mayor Sharon Schuler
asked about the issue of atten-
dance by council members.
She pointed out that there had
been a couple of instances of
members being gone for
extended periods of time due
to job considerations.
Buhr, who serves as the city
attorney for a number of dif-
ferent communities, said he
had established just such rules
for the cities of Mulberry and
Zolfo Springs. They were
based on the "three strikes"
theory for unexcused
absences. In any event, he
agreed that establishing pro-
cedures for the council would
be a good thing.
"At some point, you're
going to want to have an ordi-
nance establishing the rules of
the council," Burh said.
While there was discussion
of putting the regulations in
the charter, Buhr advised
against such an action. He

Property appraiser speaks at



Farm Bureau annual meeting


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING A large crowd
of local growers, farmers and
guests gathered at the
Highlands County Agri-Civic
Center for the 67th annual
Farm Bureau Annual Meeting
Thursday night, to celebrate
what Farm Bureau President
Tom Andrews called a "good
year" overall.
Andrews, who is in his first
year as president, acknowl-
edged problems being faced
by some groups, particularly
the citrus industry, which is
dealing with difficulties from
canker and greening. But
despite the problems, local
growers are "optimistic,"
Andrews said.
Andrews also said the slow
housing market is having a
tangible effect throughout
many agricultural industries,
particularly nurseries. With
little new construction going
on, Andrews said, business
inevitably slows down.


"It's a domino effect,"
Andrews said. "We're all in
the same field of play."
The industry is also facing
issues with property taxes and
impact fees, Andrews said,
which the lobbying arm of the
bureau is working with the
state Legislature to address.
Highlands County Property
Appraiser Raymond McIntyre
was the evening's guest
speaker, and his original plan
was to discuss the controver-
sial property tax superexemp-
tion. But since the proposal
was ruled confusing and
pulled off the ballot by a cir-
cuit court judge earlier,
McIntyre had to adjust his
speech somewhat.
McIntyre discussed why
the proposal was yanked off
the ballot in the first place,
saying the measure was struck
down because its text was
deemed "confusing" and
"misleading" by the court.
One of the main reasons for
the ruling was that the amend-


ment didn't make clear that it
would eliminate the Save Our
Homes program.
"If you ever sold your
home, you couldn't get Save
Our Homes," McIntyre said,
"and the amendment wasn't
clear on that."
Although the ruling has
been appealed, McIntyre said
it would be a "long shot" that
the amendment will be on the
ballot in time for the Jan. 29
election.
"I don't think it will make
it," McIntyre told the crowd.
"It didn't feel like a landslide
of support for it anyway."
McIntyre said the
Legislature could try to clari-
fy the language at its Oct. 3
special session, but added that
the Senate is opposed to the
changes. Even if the appeal
goes through and a higher
court overturns the ruling, it
probably won't happen in
time for the election,
Mclfityre said.


told council members such
regulations might be open to
change and interpretation and
changing them might be easi-
er if there were enacted as an
ordinance.
City Manager C.B. Shirey
suggested a method for filling
vacancies on the council also
should be addressed.
City Councilman George
Hall called for the issue to
come back as an ordinance up
for first reading at the Oct 8
session.
"I'd like the public to get a
chance to take a look at this,"
he said.
In other action, the council
established a canvassing
board for the upcoming
municipal election, opting to.
let the four council members
not up for election Doug
Eason, Brenda Gray, George
Hall and Joe Wright to cer-
tify the ballots.

Hardee County can apply for

home rehab grant money


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
WAUCHULA Hardee
County was one of six coun-
ties to receive a Small Cities
Community Development
Block Grant this year.
Florida's Department of
Community Affairs awarded
$20 million to six counties
and 27 cities. Hardee's cut
was $750,000.
"Through this program,
funds will go where they are
most needed to enhance the
quality of life in Florida's
low- to moderate-income
neighborhoods," DCA secre-
tary Tom Pelham said in a
press release Wednesday.
'"The Small Cities CDBG pro-
gram is designed to assist
communities too small to
receive automatic, or 'entitle-
ment,' funds from the federal
government."
The program is open to
cities with fewer than 50,000
residents and counties with
fewer than 200,000.

cialist with Hardee County's

office, said the money must
filter through the bureaucratic
pipeline and be approved by
commissioners.
Once her office receives
the money $350,000 dur-
ing each of two years -
they'll begin taking applica-
tions.
Moore said the grant
includes an amount for
administrative costs, but was
under the impression Hardee
was awarded $700,000, not
$750,000.
"The strategy is for rehabil-
itation," she said, explaining
qualified applicants will have
to meet certain income crite-
ria and have homes that aren't
up to building codes or pose
health problems. "That
(grant) money could be used
to correct the issue."
Moore said issues such as
wiring and septic are exam-
ples of how the money be
applied.

Pilot who crashed on
Interstate 95 tells
near-death story

Associated Press
FORT LAUDERDALE -
The pilot of a small cargo
plane that crashed along
Interstate 95 shortly after tak-
ing off said he is surprised he
.survived the impact.
Robert "Bob" Robertson
crashed the twin-engine
Beechcraft he was flying
shortly after leaving Fort
Lauderdale Executive Airport
on Sept. 21. Robertson, 34,
was the only person aboard
the aircraft and no one was
injured on the ground.
"I knew that I was going to
die. The idea at that point is
to try not to take a lot of peo-
ple with you," Robertson
said.
Robertson said he decided
to try and land on a grassy
piece of land near Interstate
95 after an engine shut down.
"I was shocked I survived,"
he said.
Doctors have predicted he
will make a full recovery,
Robertson said.

Something?

serve others. Our family has been helping
families here for many years. A our town
has grown, we have grown too, with more
.. specialized services, such as out-of-town
arrangements, pre-arrangements, cremations
and a grief recovery program. Even. though.
we have grown, our dedication to service is
still the same as it was years ago. And, we

Kenilworth Lodge brings Central Florida Bridal Gala as an alternative to Monday Night

Bridal Gala helps couples



kick off wedding plans

SEBRING Intimate and
personable versus rowdy and
crowded.
The Central Florida Bridal
Gala at Kenilworth Lodge or
Monday Night Football at a
favorite sports bar.
"It's one of those things
you've got to experience if
you're getting married,"
Tenille Lee, sales manager for
Sebring's historic hotel, said.
She meant the Gala, which
has grown in its three years to
include 39 vendors and 300
visitors.
About 60 prospective
brides and their entourages
are expected during the three-
hour event Monday that
includespass hors d'ouvres,
wedding cake samples,
$5,000 in prizes and a fashion
show.
"We have .bridesmaids,

it a 45-minute "full" fashion
show. "They'll come down

photography and catering to
tuxedo rentals and a horse-
drawn carriage.,
Compared to similar events
in the bigger cities, the gala
here will be more personable.
"We've set it up to make it
a very intimate setting," Lee
said. "The brides can spend
one-on-one time with the ven-
dors. You can plan your whole
wedding in one place."
Don Elwell, Kenilworth
;.general manager, said wed-
dings .are typically planned
nine to 18 months,' which
explains an October gala
rather than a more-marrying
month such as June, when
NFL and college football
teams are on hiatus.


Lee said some of the brides
who come already have wed-
dings scheduled within a
month or two, but are drawn
by the chance to win a honey-
moon.
The grand prize is an all-
inclusive Sandals Resorts
honeymoon for four nights
and five days (airfare's not
included).
The less-grand prizes are a
five-night stay at Las Vegas'
Embassy Suites, a pair of
round-trip tickets to. any U.S.
destination and Delaney
Photography's "Elegance
Wedding Package," valued at
$2,300.
Only the brides-to-be are
eligible for the previous
prizes, but all registered
guests can win the vendors'
giveways, explained Lee.
"It's a fun night out,"
Elwell said, explaining brides
will huddle with friends and
family after visiting a vendor.
They discuss strategy and
their next move. "But, it's not
the most masculine event."
The New England Patriots
are at Cincinnati Bengals on
Monday.
Kickoff is 8:30 p.m.


Campbell to address illegals voting


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Highlands
1County Supervisor of
Elections Joe Campbell will
be the guest at the Thursday
meeting of the American
Party of Florida.
Following an appearance at
the APF earlier this year,
Campbell called on the
Florida Department of State
to review practices that could
allow non-citizens to register
to vote and even cast ballots
affecting the outcome of elec-
tions from the most local to
even federal levels
"With the election season
beginning in the near future,
we thought this would be a
good time for an update,"
American Party of Florida
Chairman Tom Macklin said.
At issue, is whether illegal
aliens are able to take state
issued driver's licenses and
use them as documentation to
get voter identification cards.
Campbell has been after state
officials to take action on the
issue, contacting Florida
Secretary of State Kurt
Browning.
"I asked if they couldn't
put some kind of letter or
number on the driver's license
code number that would indi-
cate that these people weren't
citizens and therefore didn't
have the right to vote here,"
Campbell said.
Browning replied that he
would get with the Division
of Motor Vehicles and investi-
gate what kind of program-
ming it would take to add a
code.
Campbell's research indi-
cated driver's license agency
workers "do a bit of screen-
ing" to determine whether or
not an applicant is a United
States citizen. If they are not,
they do not register that per-
son to vote. However, that


person still could get a voter's
application elsewhere then
get into the system.
Campbell may have raised
the problem, but it will be up
to Browning and his staff to
fix it.
"Everything we do goes up
through the state. Even if we
add somebody into our sys-
tem, the application goes to
Tallahassee where they check
it against records by Social
Security, the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement and a number of
different agencies," he
explained.


The American Party of
Florida meets in Homers
Restaurant in the Sebring
Square plaza. Dinner is at 6
p.m. with the meeting at 6:30.


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING A special kin-
dred can sometimes develop
between a person and their
pets. It is obvious many times
that the pet can even take on
their own personality or can
return those feelings of
friendship and love.
Many stories illustrate the
loyalty animals have for their
owners. Take for example the
lost dog scenario where the
animal would travel hundreds
of miles to be returned to their
owners.
It is a sure thing that pets
can hold a special place in a
person's life.
Ask any pet owner and they
will tell you that their pets do
indeed share a kindred spirit,
and the folks at Heaven's
Gates Animal Ministries
affirm that animals are even a
part of God's plan.
Job of the Old Testament
might have said it best. "But
ask the animals, and they will
teach you, or the birds of the
air, and they will tell you; or
speak to the earth, and it will
teach you, or let the fish of
the sea inform you. Which of
all these does not know that
the hand of the Lord has done
this? In his hand is the life of
every creature and the breath
of all mankind."
Gail Leavitt, director and
founder of the new ministry,
states that there is biblical
proof that animals even have
a soul.
"I have always loved ani-


mals. I grew up in the city, but
could not wait to get out to
my grandma's farm when I
could," Leavitt said. "1 am
convinced that animals have a
soul, and are a part of God's
overall picture."
The purpose of Heaven's
Gates Animal Ministries is to
help people going through
difficult times when their pet
dies or has a terminal illness.
They offer pet memorial serv-
ices, grief counseling, and
seminars on how animals are
part of God's plan.
This Florida ministry is
dedicated to sharing the bibli-
cal knowledge that animals
possess a soul and go to heav-
en.
Although not their main
focus, it is also the desire of
Heaven's Gates to increase

Iik ::


the awareness of animal
rights.
Leavitt is awaiting a zoning
for their pet cemetery.
Keeping this in mind,
Heaven's Gates has partnered
with Highlands Hammock
State Park and several reli-
gious leaders within the com-
munity to have a World
Animal Day at the park at 6
p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4.
During the non-denomina-
tional services, there will be
an opportunity for pet owners
to get their pet blessed by
local clergy.
For information about
World Animal Day, or about
Heaven's Gate Animal
Ministries, contact them at
386-6094 or visit their Web
site online at www.ani-
malsministries.org.

Ag-Venture looking for volunteers


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING The
Highlands County Ag-
Venture program is quickly
approaching, and volunteers
are needed to help the event
run smoothly.
More than 100 volunteers
are needed each day for the
three-day event, running from
Oct. 30 to Nov. 1.
Additional volunteers are
needed the Saturday before
the event to help set up each
of the 14 stations.
"That is a tough day. There
is a semi load of hay to be
brought in, and we need to set
up backgrounds," Darlene
Phypers of Happiness Farms
said. "If we could get volun-
teers for a few hours Saturday
morning I would love it."
During Ag-Venture, volun-


teers help students at one of
14 stations. They can assist
the third-grade participants
with everything from making
their own butter to squeezing
oranges.
Stations cover the many
aspects of Highlands County
agriculture. By donating their
time, volunteers can help stu-
dents learn about alligators,
farm animals, bees, caladi-
ums, citrus, dairy, forestry,
grapes, ornamental horticul-
ture, poultry, strawberries,
soil and water conservation,
and vegetables.
Volunteers are also needed
to serve in various other roles
- bus greeters, timers to help
with station rotation, cooks,
and servers for volunteer
lunches. All volunteers are
provided' with lunch during
the day.


For information or to to
become an Ag-Venture volun-
teer, call Danielle Daum or
Darlene Phypers at 465-2313
or Judy Bronson at 655-0123.

Concrete is being smoothed by Bob Schultz, Highlands Count Facilities Management mainte-
nance team member, for the base of one of the newly constructed benches to be installed at
the Medal of Honor Park. The park benches are to be installed in time for the December
dedication ceremony.



Medal of Honor Park to



receive park benches


By MARY MARGARET STAIK
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Bob Schultz,
Highlands County Facilities
Management maintenance
personnel, along with a work
crew from Cemax and
trustees from the Highlands
County Jail poured and
smoothed concrete for the
bases to hold each of the si
park benches destined for the
Medal of Honor Park.
Herb Wilson, past Chef de
Gare of the 40 et 8 of Lake
Placid, was instrumental in
spearheading the drive for
having five park benches
built. Additional funds came
in through members of the
Veterans Advisgry Board to
construct an additional bench.
The concrete pads are com-
plete and, according to Joseph
A. Dionne, Highlands County
Veteran Services Officer, the
VSO is waiting for the time
for the benches to be deliv-
ered. There is a delay in the
delivery of the benches due to.
health concerns of the con-
tractor. The benches should
be delivered and installed
before the dedication ceremo-
ny in December.
The Veterans Advisory
Board members are planning
a Pearl Harbor Day of
Remembrance at the Medal of
Honor Park, and are hoping to
dedicate the benches at that
time in December.
The Medal of Honor Park is
at 7205 S. George Blvd., and
displays memorials to recog-
nize each of the Florida recip-
ients of the Medal of Honor.
The honor is bestowed upon
soldiers for "gallantry and
intrepidity" at the risk of their
own life above and beyond
the call of duty while serving
in the U.S. military.

CLASS
Continued from 1A
two Queens, one Tersa moth,
and one special Zebra
Swallowtail.
"Everyone knows how dif-
ficult it is to raise Zebra
Swallowtails in captivity,"
Crout said. "This butterfly
survives on the paw paw
plant common to Florida,
however it is a very finicky
plant. It dies when trans-
planted, and does not stay
alive when cut."
Through experimentation,
Crout and her class were able
to see the metamorphic
process, and were extremely
delighted to see the beauti-
fully striped long-wing but-
terfly appear. It hatched in
two weeks from a lime green
chrysalis made by the cater-
pillar to look like the leaf of
the paw paw tree.
Crout has her own small
butterfly garden at her home.
Her fiance, Danny
Sredzinski, planted more than
25 different plants to attract
butterflies. Some plants are
host plants, while others are
nectar or pollen plants for the
butterflies. Crout brings in
larva from her plants to raise
and returns them to her gar-
den once they have hatched
from the student's mini-
ecosystems.
Crout herself was one of
those kids who ran through
the fields of western New
York looking for and catch-
ing her own butterflies and
bugs. She knows first-hand
how exciting it can be to


The class's only problem is providing
enough food...


raise butterflies and moths.
The class now has the
Uncle Sam, or Oleander
moth, in cocoon. It is named
the Uncle Sam moth because
it is red, white and blue.
Interesting enough, the larva
is a bright yellow with very
long hairy looking spikes on
its body. The class is waiting
for it to hatch.
Students also have been
watching a 2 1/2 inch, snake-
like hog sphinx moth pupate
into a very interesting "eyed"
cocoon. The eye spots are on
both sides of the cocoon's
body, and are supposed to
scare off predators. It can
also retract the first two seg-
ments of its body into the
third, making it look much
bigger and longer. It gets its
name from the resemblance
to a hog's snout and mouth.
This caterpillar has built a
little den with lacy netting
over it, which looks like a
leaves' veins stripped of its
green, Crout reports.
How much students are
learning in Crout's lessons
can be seen through the
enthusiasm of her students.
Once students learn vocabu-
lary such as camouflage or
the names of butterflies, stu-
dents opt to use the correct
vocabulary when referring to
their specimens.
Students like Marquese
Sims spend their time after
school looking in his small in
town yard for larva of his
own. Marquese's natural
curiosity has also stimulated


him to bring snails for the
terrariums, and he has
become very knowledgeable
about the subject.
From personal observation
"in the field," Marquese can
tell a person just about any-
thing a snail does. "He truly
understands the concept of
observation," Crout said.
Wyatt Page has become an
expert on metamorphism. He
can pretty much predict
whether a butterfly will hatch
by looking at the color of the
chrysalis. "It's turning darker
and you can see the wings
folded up in there," Wyatt
reports, and sure enough, his
butterfly hatches just as pre-
dicted.
"Boy, they eat a lot,"
declared a student named
Clayton.
The class's only problem is
providing enough food to
feed their entire larva. Crout
has had to call other teachers
to get passion plant to feed
the many Gulf Fritillary
caterpillars they are raising.
They are always looking for
donations of plants. The class
plans to plant their own but-
terfly garden around their
portable classroom. Crout
also has applied for a grant
sponsored by the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District.
Crout hopes to take her
students to local lakes to fur-
ther study ecosystems, and
water quality in the "real"
science field with the money
she receives from this grant.

Jerry Paulsen has Avon Park middle schoolers excited and focused as he spreads his mes-
sage of positive thinking. For example, he assigns letters the number that marks their place
in the alphabet, then has students add the letters up. The word knowledge, he said, adds up
to 96, not 100, because there is always something new to learn. And 'hard work' only adds
up to 98 because you almost always have to work harder. But, he added, the word attitude
adds up to 100, because a can-do attitude will win every time.

pointing lack of interest in
the We Care Hotline, founded
and sponsored by the founda-
tion.
The hotline is a safe, pri-
vate place where children
may call when dealing with
everyday problems or serious
emergencies.
While the hotline was well
used the first year of its exis-
tence, since then the numbers
have been far fewer than was
hoped for.
Which is why part of the
presentations at the' schools
this week was the marketing
of the hotline, reminding stu-
dents it is an excellent local

"for sale" and "for rent" signs
into their owners' yards.
"We're taking that extra
step," Hicks said. "So, they
can have that opportunity to
sel fheir homes:.'-,.. .
They encountered one
home owner who said her
sign had been in the same
place more than a year, threat-
ening to quit maintaining the
area if she couldn't use it.
Hicks put the sign in her
yard and let it go at that, he
said.
After they wrestled a pair
of large development signs
that were all but cemented in
the ground at the intersection
of North Gaster Road and
County Road 17A, Hartseil
and Singley explained the
county will begin issuing cita-
tions to snipe-sign violators.
"We operate on prima fas-
cia evidence," Hartseil said,
explaining the businesses on
the signs will be fined,
regardless of who actually
placed them.
First-time offenders face a
$50 fine. THey max out at
$500. But, explained Singley,
the fiies can'compound based
on the1 number of days the
offense remains.
Donald Simmons and
Marnita English, both officers
with Avon Park Code
Enforcement, removed the
fewest signs.
"We don't have a lot of


signs in the city because we
kind of stay on top of it,"
Simmons said.
In addition, he said, he has
an officer on duty every day
of the week.
Hartseil said fewer signs
were removed this year than
last. She credited advance
notice in the News-Sun for
encouraging people to
retrieve their signs before a
county or city employee got
to them.


"They're going in the
Dumpster," she said, explain-
ing the cost of signs more
than potential penalties is
what motivated the voluntary
sign removals.
Hartseil and Singley spent
about 30-40 hours each last
week policing the signs
before Saturday's collective
effort.
But, because they're
salaried employees, the over-
time hours weren't billable.

What the federal government is for


Well, it's time for my occa-
sional rant about what the
federal government's job
description is. This comes up
every once in a while when I
see people are getting all
excited about giving the fed-
eral government even more
jobs to do.
Recently, a caller to the
Barry Foster Show (which
airs on WWTK, AM 730
Mondays-Fridays, 8-10 a.m.)
suggested that the federal
government should spend
money on finding a cure for
food allergies. Barry, who has
never seen a government pro-
gram he liked, did not agree.
I can understand the
caller's take on this. He said
there are 150 deaths a year
caused by food allergies, and
many of those are children.
No one likes to think about
dead children. Few people
would think that finding a
cure for food allergies and
preventing those deaths was a
bad idea.
So the question isn't (or
shouldn't be) is curing food
allergies, autism, AIDS, etc.,
a good thing? The question


is, should the
federal govern-
ment be the one
doing the job?
It's tempting
to saddle the federal
ment with all kinds
We think it has all

govern-
of work.
kinds of


money and resources. We
have gotten used to the gov-
ernment taking on all kinds of
stuff. What's one more pro-
gram? A few more millions?
Of course, that's how the
government gets bigger. One
program at a time. And it
seems 'that almost no one
checks the Constitution to see
if it's part of the federal gov-
ernment's job description.
Please note I keep saying
"federal government." State
and local governments are a
whole different story. They
have their own rules and such.
The federal government has
the Constitution to guide it on
what it can and can't do. Or
it's supposed to.
Me, I think the federal gov-
ernment surpassed it's
Constitutional limits a long
time ago. Now we have peo-
ple like Michael Moore who.


want the federal
government to
completely
manage health
care. Never


mind their track record in
such tasks is less than stellar.
"So what if the federal gov-
ernment does all this stuff,
Laura?" someone may ask.
"If they can do it, why not let
them?"
Well, a few reasons. First,
the federal government was-
n't designed to do a lot of this
stuff. That means it doesn't do
it all that well. Many times
it's too far removed from the
problems it's trying to solve.
Since it's trying to deal with
50 states and countless cities
and municipalities, the ten-
dency to do a "one size fits
all" approach means it's
attempted fixes don't always
fit everyone it's trying to
help.
And letting the federal gov-
ernment do all these things
doesn't make it free to us.
There are costs. Taxes are an
obvious one, but that's not
even the worst one.
If you are going to give the


federal government control of
something, you are giving it
power over it. Let's take
health care as an example.
Having the government pay
for it sounds tempting until
you realize that if they pay for
it, they can decide what you
will or won't get in services.
Maybe they'll even decide to
deny you services if you're
overweight, or drink or
smoke?
. Look, cures for diseases,
health care for people, and aid
for the poor are all great and
good things. If we want them
done, let's get them done. But
how about doing it in ways

I like my barber and the attention he gives


I know it is probably vain,
but I have my own barber.
Well, actually he is not mine
alone, I mean he cuts other
guys' hair, but I prefer him
over others that I've met. His
name is Larry.
It is not like I get my hair cut
every week, but when I do go it
is sort of a time to relax.
Larry's shop is isolated from
most of the hustle in the out-
side world.
The shop is one of those


'




Mr. Ed
Said
Ed Baldridge


places that remind you of simpler times.
Not the '80s, when I grew up, further
back. Like the Andy Griffith Show.
Soft drinks are just 50 cents, but the
machine is broke so you have to open the
unlocked door and put your money in the
box on top. Every kid gets a penny to put
in the Lion's Club bubble gum machine
after the hair cut.
It has the usual d6cor that good bar-
bershops have dark paneling, chairs
from the fifties, animal heads and stuffed
fish on the wall, old newspaper clipping
about checkers and swamp cabbage. The
radio is stuck on older country music or
sometimes talk radio. No television.
There is always some fresh fruits or
vegetables for sale there when in season.
There is even fresh honey.
Larry is actually pretty good at cutting
hair. I guess he is anyways. He has been
at it for more than 30 years.
I think it is because Larry takes his


time with the little things.
Every one who gets their hair
cut also gets the spots behind
their ears and around the back
of their neck shaved.
Afterwards, you feel really
clean and manicured.
The shaving cream is always
warmed, and the straight razor
is always sharp. It is attention
to details that makes the differ-
ence in any job.
Most of the folks who go to
the same barber shop wait for


him more than anyone else. But Larry is
worth the wait.
I used Larry when I was a kid, then I
moved away for college. After 18 years
of being away, I went back into Larry's
shop and sat down. He knew who I was
and immediately asked the same ques-
tions he asked 18 years ago. I guess some
people have a memory for hair.
Maybe it was my head.
I have an unusual head, it is larger than
most. I sometimes have a problem find-
ing hats. I don't wear a lot of hats, most-
ly because they look small on my head. I
don't know why Larry doesn't charge me
more for my head. Maybe it averages
out. I have three brothers. We all have
large heads.
Sometimes people think I am smarter
because I have a bigger head. More
brains in there I guess.
I tried someone else once. There were
eight people waiting to get their hair cut


by Larry, and I was in a hurry.
I know now why the seat was open. It
wasn't a bad haircut, it just wasn't Larry.
The cost of cutting hair a few weeks
ago went up, but only a dollar. No one
complained, Larry is that good.
Men have their hair cut, by the way.
Women have their hair "done." Having
your hair "done" usually costs more.
Larry is the kind of barber that can
sense your mood. He is talkative when
you want to be and quite when you are
trying to think.
There is always a topic of discussion
in Lairy's shop. Simple things like foot-
ball or baseball. Sometimes the weather.
There is also talk about politics, hunt-
ing, gardening, and fishing though I
don't really do any of those things, but it
is nice to be involved in the discussion.
There are some good magazines and
newspapers in Larry's shop. Geared
towards men, of course. But there is one
"Good Living." I guess it is for the moms
who are waiting for their sons.
One time I over heard a small boy,
someone I had never seen in there before,
tell his mom when it was his turn, "I'm
not sure I want him; he only knows one
way to cut hair." Smart kid.
That was after Larry cut four flat tops,
including mine.

Ed Baldridge is an Avon Park resident and
a News-Sun correspondent. He gets his hair
cut at Albritton's Barber Shop in Avon
Park.

Residents paying for
the county's work
Editor:
Once again the residents of
Erin Park have stepped up to
the plate and took care of a
problem that should have
been resolved by the county
or the state.
For the second time in six
years we have paid to have
the sandbar at the mouth of
the canals to Little Lake
Jackson removed. We wish to
thank all of the residents, both
part time and full time, that
contributed to having this
done.
We feel that access to the
lakes should be maintained by
the Department, of
Environmental Protection or
the state: Access to the lakes,
logically, should fall under
the jurisdiction of the Parks
and Recreation Department,
as boating, fishing, etc. is
recreation. We suggest that
maybe some of the monies
could be designated by the
Parks and Recreation
Department to help keep the
access to the lakes cleaned
out!
Of course, a sandbar under
the bridge on U.S. 27 denies
access to big Lake Jackson,
our "Jewel of Sebring," to all
residents on Little Lake
Jackson and the three con-
necting canals. C6rrecting
that is controlled by the
Department of
Transportation, who adamant-
ly disallows any sand
removal, even enough for a
flow of water between the two
lakes, let alone boat passage.
When we spoke to Clell
Ford about this problem, -he
said they were working with


the Department of
Transportation, but could not
give us a time frame for
removal.
We suggest concerned resi-
dents call or write J.D.
Alexander, State Senator, who
has an office at 167 W. Center
Ave., Sebring, FL 33870. His
phone number is 386-6016
and Denise Grimsley, State
Representative, 205 S.
Commerce Ave. Suite B,
Sebring, FL 33870, phone
number, 385-5251. Perhaps
they can help get this sandbar
removed.
Thanks again to all resi-
dents, full and part time, that
contributed to having the
sandbar removed. Now, all we
need is some rain and maybe
we will, at least, be able to get
into Little Lake Jackson!

Good turn out made
for POW/MIA event
Editor:
I would like to thank every-
one who attended the
POW/MIA in Avon Park for it
was a very spectacular pro-
gram. Colonel William
Hutchinson with his Junior
ROTC giving tribute on the
"Table" of the missing plate.
The keynote speaker was
introduced by Tom Macklin -
Elizabeth Stewart who is co-
author of "An Enormous
Crime." Barry and Susan
Foster for all his help and
write up in the paper and his
wife Susan for the pictures
she took.


City Manager C.B. Shirey
with all his help in getting our
permits and just being there
for me.
Wally Randall, I don't
know what I would have done
without you. Tom and Tammy
Macklin, I know you went out
on a limb for me. David
Flowers, I can't say what it
meant to have you sing the
American Trilogy and play

"Taps" just as the fireworks
went off. I have not forgotten
the Stardusters who played
patriotic songs for us to dance
to before the program, but if it
wasn't for Auto Options
allowing us to be under the
overhang of his building,
(Thanks Tom Tullo) or we
would not be able to have the
band play or have our pro-
gram without getting wet.
Thanks to the United States
Military Veterans Motorcycle
Club and the fire department
and all the wives to form an
aisle way for the Prisoner of
War to be led through by John
Nagy and Jim Bass the pris-
oner was Carry Parrish.
I knew that Avon Park was
special and special people
live here, for I went to
Bagwell to get lumber so a
Tomb of The Unknown
Soldier could be made. Gary
Bagwell said "get whatever
you need." I went to Palmer
Electric and the same thing
happened, "get whatever, you
need." See what I mean, very
special people.

PET
Continued from 11A
He said that he is cautious
about answering calls from
angry neighbors.
All too often he has found
the animal involved to be
innocent of any wrong doing;
it is the humans who are fight-
ing a tit-for-tat border war.
He said that people can be
very defensive, as well as
abusive and threatening.
In fact, when I asked Davis
for his scariest story, he
answered right away that it
was the night someone, he
thinks the owner of a vicious
dog he was having to
impound, pointed a shot gun


at his truck and fired. He
clearly saw a silhouette of the
man in the light of the flash
when he fired.
This was the scary story he
thought of first. Even though
he later told of being sur-
rounded by a pack of angry
dogs and having to run for his
truck while fighting off one of
them that got his head in the
door. Then the pack attacked
the truck, throwing them-
selves against the windows
and sides so it shook and he
worried the glass would
break. The dogs even bit one
tire flat. But still Davis hadn't
thought of them first.
He is more wary of humans
than of the animals we
humans fear. It makes him a
good and careful listener.


It is hard sometimes, he
said, because people don't
always understand how they
are contributing to a bad situ-
ation. They buy big, aggres-
sive dogs to protect their fam-
ilies, then are surprised when
the dogs become difficult to
control.
Too many difficult dogs
end up dumped in rural areas,
left to fend for themselves
while they starve and de-
hydrate.
Problem areas shift over
time, Davis said. At one time
dog packs were the biggest
problem in south Lake Placid,
now the biggest problem is in
north Avon Park. .
That's where we spent time
dog tracking, in the area south
of Stryker Road and east of
North Olivia Drive
We didn't get out of the car
and follow on foot, which is
what Davis does when he's at
work. The prints were fresh


and easy to follow, plus we
were on a popular dog trail.
Davis had a fair idea of where
the dog was going, even a
good guess as to who he was.
We were traveling in an
area with only the faintest
trace of asphalt paving, most-
ly none at all. Fields filled
with weeds grown head high
stretched out around us.
Looking at the paw prints was
a little like being on safari in
the African wild.
Packs, Davis explained,
form when male dogs, most of
whom have been abandoned
and not neutered, are attracted
to a female in heat. They can
smell her from as far away as
ten miles.
The puppies which soon
arrive make the pack bigger.
Sometimes home dogs,
allowed to roam at will, tag
along. Something with struc-
ture and a collective cunning
emerges.


We caught up with the dog
we'd been tracking. He was a
large, tan pit bull mix with
piercing, yellow eyes, but no
tags or collar. He rested in the
shade of a small tree.
Just behind him, a slightly
smaller brindled pit mix, a
female of course, was tied to
the tree.
Both dogs looked up as
Davis left the truck and slow-
ly walked around the front of
the cab. Instead of a catch
pole he pulled a length of
sturdy rope out of his back
pocket, carefully keeping it
out of sight from the dog.
The dog, however, it being
the heat of the day, and I sus-
pect smelling a rat, didn't
move or express interest.
Until, and I swear this is
exactly what happened, the
female pawed his rear haunch,
just like a wife poking her
husband at three in the morn-
ing when she's heard some-


thing in the kitchen.
At first the tan pit just
heaved himself forward, but
the female followed and
tapped him again with her
paw, this time more forceful-
ly, almost pushing him to his
feet to confront us.
Davis used a quiet, sooth-
ing voice. The dog while
keeping a very cold gaze on
both of us, his body rigid with
doubt seemed to want to
get close, as if he had a dim
memory of pleasure c6nnect-
ed to people, and hope for a
happy ending.
It didn't take long to cap-
ture him. Davis was quite
gentle, and the dog submitted
to his fate after initially balk-
ing.
I wish I could say some-
thing witty in closing, but
please spay or neuter your
pet, or adopt an animal seem
more appropriate.


,News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
This pit bill mix has been wandering in northern Avon Park for some time. He has only 10 days from the time of his cap-
ture to get adopted. For adoption information call 655-6475 and ask for Pat Pablo.

has seen a lot of wild dog activity. It isn't always easy for ani-

must be proven before action can be taken.

Psalm 37:1, "Do not fret
Because of evildoers, nor
be envious of the workers

of iniquity." In the above

passage of scripture, we
are encouraged not to
worry about the success of
the wicked. Now, let's read
in the same chapter verse 34, "Wait on the.
Lord and keep His wa'y, and He shall exalt
you to inherit the land; when the wicked
are cut off you shall see it. "As followers of
Christ, we have a miiclh better reason to
endure tough times as we live for Him. The
Lord has assured us in His word that better
times are ahead. The Psalmist reminded us
that in spite of the prosperity of the wicked,
the righteous will be vindicated. Of course,
we will become discouraged at times.
David did. Elijah: di' :So did Moses and
Solomon. But the .i 'twer i of Christ has
every reason not tYqgiVe up. Keep looking
for what the Lord has planned for you
today, tomorrow, f: yere: Keep this in
mind, there are no homeless situations, only
people who have lostihope. Be Blessed!

TOUGH
Continued from 11A

partnerships that I thought
were models for success. In
both cases, the partners were
lifelong friends who valued
the process of combining
their efforts more highly than
each valued his own position.
In other words, they had
committed their entire busi-
ness life to the concept of
"one for all and all for one."
The relative contributions of
one versus the other never
came up for discussion and
great care was taken never to
advantage one over the other.
It was share and share alike,
right down the line.
Why did they do this?
They never really had a good
answer for that.
From observing both pairs,
it appeared to me they had
common personality charac-
teristics, beliefs and values
that propelled them to this
way of business life. They
gave up some individuality
for the benefit and security of
"two heads better than one."
They knew one another very
well before embarking on the
partnership. Not unlike the
ingredients for a successful
marriage, although I would
hasten to say that each of
these individuals was in a
long-term marriage.
Many times,.businesses are
started as two-person partner-
ships. Many times, and noto-
riously so, these partnerships
falter as soon as there is any
adversity, and then fail. The
financial and emotional cost
is enormous.
Many times, the reason is a
simple as in the saying,
"Marry (partner up) in haste,
repent at leisure." Folks only
look at the dream of success
without noticing that the road
to success is often like a
rocky, treacherous uphill
path.
Adversity is part of the
journey.'To succeed, you now
.need more than just one per-
son with exceptional grit, you


need two. Then add the
dimension that the two have
to be in sync during the trek,
pulling together.
The degree of difficulty
rises immeasurably if dis-
agreements over how to pro-
ceed turn nasty, and friend-
ship is lost. Trust can be lost,
too, and otherwise soluble
problems then become
impossible to solve. A 50/50
general partnership can self-
destruct while fighting over
matters that should have been
decided in the beginning.
Many two-person partner-
ships are formed with
friends, to share the expense
and reduce their individual
risk. This is only about half
right. The cost burden is
shared, but the risk increases.
The crux of it is that rarely
does each new partner have
the skills and knowledge to
evaluate him or herself-and
the new partner against
possible future situations.
In a general partnership,
each partner is personally
liable for both the company's
debts and whatever obliga-


tions the other partner may
create in the business name.
Don't overlook what a biggie
this could be. This includes
purchases, loans, leases, or
contracts as well as lawsuits
over all kinds of things that
may happen while doing
business.
Alternative forms of organ-
ization such as a corporation
can provide some protection,
but not always complete pro-
tection.
It's important to work out
agreed principles of commu-
nication and mutual decision-
making before difficult issues
present themselves. In other
words, no secrets. No unilat-
eral decisions until you have
agreed on areas where that's
OK.
If all this sounds to you
like an argument against
equal partnership, then I
might as well confess: It is,
indeed. If you are just start-
ing to put the business
together, consider whether
there are workable alterna-
tives to equal partnership.
Arrive at an honest assess-


ment of what each can give
and what each will expect in
return.
If it turns out that one is
providing the money and the
other the business knowl-
edge, then maybe only one
should be making the opera-
tional decisions, and the
other should have their
investment secured to the
extent possible by business
assets. An asymmetrical
arrangement like this is often
best but is not an ordinary
general partnership. Your
attorney can help sort out
what it is and how best to
structure it.
However, for those who
can navigate the perils of
partnership, there is nothing
like a good, long-term part-
ner. Not unlike a marriage.

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop

Perseverance

and honesty
My husband, Ken, and I
were out of town one
weekend and stopped in a
western wear store to shop
for attire for an event we
would be attending. With
purchases in hand, we
headed for home.
The next day, I opened a
jewelry box where I kept a
favorite bracelet; but, it
wasn't there. So I looked in
other possible places; but,
no bracelet.
Now I was getting a bit
frantic and started back-
tracking. I had worn it over
the weekend and at the'
western wear store where I
had tried on two blouses.
With very low hopes, I
called the store, and asked
if anyone had turned in a
bracelet. The chances of
the finder not keeping a
fine piece of jewelry
seemed slim. But, friends
insisted it was worth the
call. So I persisted.
The clerk put me on hold
while he checked with the
sales girls. When he
returned, he asked me to
describe it. I did.
Then he said, "I'm hold-
ing it in my hand."
Interestingly, the cus-
tomer who turned it in had
found it in the pocket of a
pair of jeans, not among
the blouses. We had not
gone near the jeans.
"Wow," I said to the
clerk. "This was such a
long-shot. I'm amazed."
We drove out of town
one more time that week-
end, picked up the bracelet
and thanked the store keep-
ers. We asked that they
pass along our appreciation
to .the customer who did
what was right and saw this
as my loss not her gain.
Situations in life may
leave us hanging on with
only a thread. Any persist-
ence on our part is half-
Shearted at best. But, that's
better than giving up with-
out a try.
Had I had not persisted
in finding the lost item, the
kind customer would have
received her reward know-
ing she had acted honestly
and in my best interest.
But, the bracelet still would
have been lost to me.
A bracelet can't compare
v. ilhi pei et.eini,: in the
spiritual realm where tliat
which we may be giving up
on may be a lost soul.
Perseverance is encouraged
in the Bible as leading to a
fruitful life in Christ.
Other times, we're alone
in the "dressing room" of
life and could get away
with giving into tempta-
tion. Yet, it also offers us
the opportunity to choose
the right path.
The modern translation
of the Bible, The Message,
puts the Golden Rule this
way in Matthew 7: 12,
"Here is a simple, rule-
of-thumb guide for behav-
ior: Ask yourself what you
want people to d6 for you,
then grab the initiative and
do it for them."
Perseverance and hon-
f1 esty are each their own
reward. Selah

Woman's Club of Sebring sews for underprivileged children


SEBRING The Dress-A-Doll com-

Christmas tree.
They can be seen at the North
Ridgewood Drive branch in Sebring.

TheYellow Dragon: Citrus Greening is major threat to the industry


The yellow dragon, also
known as "huanglongbing" or
citrus greening has reared its
ugly head in Florida. Citrus
greening is considered one of
the most serious threats to the
citrus industry today. It is
caused by bacteria, which is
spread by an insect called the
Asian citrus psyllid. Only
infected psyllids can spread
the disease. It was first dis-
covered by farmers in south-
ern China in the late 1800s.
All types and varieties of cit-
rus are vulnerable to this dis-
ease, which affects the nutri-
ent conducting system of the
plants.
The Asian citrus psyllids
are tiny insects (3-4 mm) but
are certainly causing big
problems for the citrus indus-
try. The culprit can be identi-
fied by its mottled brown
wings and eggs, which are
bright yellow to orange in
color. Generally, the insects
sit at an angle to the shoots or
leaves on the trees they are
feeding on. The adult psyllid


is active and leaps when dis-
turbed.
The young are yellowish
orange and are always found
on the new growth of the cit-
rus tree. Immature psyllids do
not leap around as the adults,
but move slowly and are
unable to fly. The insects can
be difficult to see because of
their small size, however,
they do leave signs of their
destruction. A white, waxy
excretion is left behind by the
babies as they move along and
feed off of the citrus plants.
The insects are mostly
found on new growth and
shoots of the trees and the
population usually will
increase during periods of
active plant growth.
This disease has spread
from eight to 23 counties
since first discovered in
Florida. It is not known how
the Asian citrus psyllid
entered the United States,
however with travel, tourism,
immigration and smuggling,
many possibilities certainly


exist.
The symptoms of
citrus greening
include leaf yellow-
ing, blotchy mottling
of leaves, twig
dieback, poor flow-
ering, small and mis-
shapen fruit and
stunted growth. The
fruit may taste bitter
and never develop
fully. The affected
seeds generally do


News

Watershed

not produce new
trees and juice quality is poor.
Although, detrimental to cit-
rus, the disease poses no harm
to humans or animals.
One of the biggest prob-
lems with the disease is that
many affected citrus trees
may not show symptoms right
away. It can take up to. two
years for the tree to show
signs of greening. In addition,
some of the symptoms may
resemble an indication of
mineral deficiencies such as
zinc.
Once the pathogen makes


its home in the tree,
the branches and
finally the entire tree
will turn yellow.
The infected psyllids
will feed on the tree
and then move on to
a healthy plant and
the process goes on
and on and continues
the spread of the dis-
ease throughout the
grove.
Citrus greening


can be spread in
other ways as well. When
grafting, if the bud wood used
is infected, it will produce an
infected tree. In addition, the
insect itself can move from
tree to tree, so if an infected
tree is moved to another loca-
tion, the healthy trees in the
area will most likely become
infected as well.
According to the Florida
Department of Agricultural
and Consumer Services, the
disease cannot be spread by
casual contamination of per-
sonnel and tools or by wind


and rain.
The control of the disease is
to eradicate infected plants.
In addition, it is critical that
the infected trees are not
mixed with healthy trees,
therefore, inspections of
incoming seedlings has
become a necessity.
According to the United
States Department of
Agriculture, "Other than tree
removal, there is no effective
control once a tree is infected
and there is no known cure for
the disease." In addition, they
report that "in areas of the
world affected by citrus
greening the average produc-
tive lifespan of citrus trees
has dropped from 50 or more
years to 15 years or less. The
trees in the orchards usually
die three to five years after
becoming infected and
require removal and replanti-
ng. An infected tree produces
fruit that is unsuitable for sale
of fresh fruit or for juice."
So, what is being done
about this serious problem?


The USDA's Animal and
Plant Health Inspection
Service has issued a federal
order that requires host plants
of the Asian citrus psyllid to
be treated prior to being
moved from areas where cit-
rus greening occurs. In addi-
tion, host plants of this psyllid
are prohibited from being
shipped or moved outside of
areas quarantined for citrus
greening.
You can also help with the
efforts to stop this serious dis-
ease. The USDA suggests that
residents regularly inspect
their citrus trees and look for
signs of the disease or insects
that match the above descrip-
tion. If you do suspect green-
ing, contact the Florida
Department of Agriculture's
toll-free helpline at 1-800-
282-5153.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month and pink is everyone's color.

Increasing Breast Cancer Awareness, One Person at a Time...
Early detection can save lives, and mammograms are the most important tool in
diagnosing breast cancer. There is no cure for breast cancer, but mammograms
can save lives by finding breast cancer as early as possible. Every woman,
beginning at age 40, should schedule a mammogram and a physical every year.
Women should also perform a thorough breast self-exam once a month. Help
spread awareness in your community by educating your neighbors and friends
on the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, and encourage the women you
know to schedule a mammogram today.

Home & Garden


Ten top ways to make the first garden hassle free


Fall means garden time in
South and Central Florida.
We have been stuck inside in
the heat of summer and are
ready to get out and enjoy
ourselves. You may be think-
ing you would like to venture
into flower or vegetable gar-
dening.
Here are some tips to help
make your experience pleas-
ant. This is not an exhaustive
how-to. It's more of a do-not-
do-what-I-did.

10. Start Small
You may fancy flowers or
vegetables but start with a
small garden bed. Becoming
overwhelmed with garden
chores will not advance your
gardening career! It is hard
for me to believe but you
might not even like it. If it
turns out to be a breeze,
enlarge later. In Florida, since
we garden all year round, a
new garden can be started just
about any time.

9. Plan a Bit
Before you head to the
nursery or garden store think
about what you want from
this new garden beauty? ...
food? ... both?
Then learn something about
the size the plants will be
when they are mature and
whether they will fit nicely in
the space you have reserved.
Moving full-grown plants
around isn't that much fun.
If you want vegetables or
sun-loving flowers, put the
garden where it gets six to
eight hours of sunlight each
day.

8. Put your new
garden near the house
You need to see it every
day, maybe twice a day. That
-_way you can ,see if it needs
raft-; seedlings. seeds and
- transplams almoqseitva.s do
need water. A little later you


will be observing whether
weeds need removing -
some gardeners cannot pass a
weed without pulling it. If
you turn out to be that garden-
er be sure to start out early.
Your boss may not accept
"weed pulling" as an excuse
for being late.
Eventually, every morning
and every evening, you want
to see your garden grow and
produce beautiful flowers, or
vegetables.

7. Over prepare your
planting bed
It's pretty hard to over-
improve the soil. Rare is the
soil that has all the attributes
to grow healthy plants. Ours
is sandy and doesn't hold
water or nutrients well. Add
organic matter (composted
manure is available and very
inexpensive), like peat moss
or compost if you can get it

6. Learn a little about
watering
New plants need lots of
.water at first but please water
carefully. Watering at the root
zone for small plants and just
sprinkling seeds and seedlings
is the way to be certain the
tiny infants are not dislodged
and washed to the far end of
the bed. There goes garden
symmetry.
When your plants are a lit-
tle bigger and a lot bigger,
water the roots rather than the
foliage. Place plants with sim-
ilar water needs together
(that's right plant, right
place). A soaker hose is an
inexpensive way to deliver
water slowly and just where
you want it.

5. Don't buy a bunch
of tools
If you develop a love- of-
gardening, you will find you
have favorite tools. Don't


acquire, them now -
you don't know
which are going to be
your favorites.
Borrow, or choose
only one or two a
good hoe like the
push-pull, which is
especially good at
weeding. And, the
best hose you can
afford. Kinky is not
cute in the hose
world and can damp-

Fast.

4. Start easy
Easy vegetables are beans,
lettuce, onions (grow these
from sets), tomatoes. Plant
your favorites, you may need
to eat a lot!
Sandy Florida soil is great
for root crops such as radishes
and carrots, and you can plant


them together since
... radishes are ready
when carrots are
4 just coming up.
If you are grow-
S ing flowers or
. shrubs, look for
r. o. drought-tolerant
NVING selections at the
plant supplier or
ON easy flower 'seeds
Like Zinnias and
son Marigold which
germinate quickly
and grow fast too. Kids love
the fast growers!

3. Use newspaper
Read first and mulch last.
Never throw a newspaper
away. In your easy and small
new garden you will place
newspaper next to your plants
and some kind of mulch to
hold it in place. This will help
to reduce weeds and help hold

moisture.

2. Understand weeds
and expect them
When you create a beauti-
ful, rich, attractive place for
plants to grow you can surely
see how opportunistic critters
like weeds will want to live
there. In fact, weed seeds are
probably lurking there wait-
ing to appear.
That is why building your
bed early is a good thing. You
can spade up those first weeds
that sprout before you even
plant the good stuff. Once it
is planted, scout your garden
- that means watch it close-
ly. Get those weeds before
they get too big.

And the first most impor-
tant way to prevent discour-
agement in the new garden ...


Nurturing the environment
starts at home, right in your
backyard. There are countless
steps the entire family can
take to develop and care for
their outdoor haven. Tending
to the lawn and garden in
environmentally focused
ways triggers special rewards
like the sweet taste of straw-
berries picked fresh from
your edible garden or a night-
time serenade of crickets.
Backyard environmental-
ism produces enormous bene-
fits: it can help conserve
water, clear the air, benefit
the lawn and attract garden
wildlife, including humming-
birds.
Consider that an average
lawn generates enough oxy-
gen for a family of four by
converting carbon dioxide


1. Take some time to
sit and watch your
garden grow
A chair or bench needs to
be installed here. Remember,
this is supposed to be enjoy-
able.

If you have questions, be
sure to call your county exten-
sion office or visit the Master
Gardeners there. Experienced
gardeners love to help new-
bies. Also, they will commis-
erate. They have probably
been there.
In Highlands County, call
402-6540; in Okeechobee,
call (863) 763-6469; in
Glades County the number is
(863) 946-0244.

Angela Sachson is with the
Okeechobee County Extension
Office as part of the Florida
Yards & Neighborhoods pro-


into oxygen. The cooling
effect of eight average-sized
lawns can equal 70 tons of air
conditioning, and grasses in
the United States each year
trap an estimated 12 million
tons of dust and dirt in the air.

Here are some ways you
can help the environment and
enjoy the results outside your
home and in the yard.
Minimize evaporation by
watering in the early morning
when temperatures are cooler
and winds are lighter.
A mowing height of 3"
allows the grass to have plen-
ty of green leaves to foster a
deep root system, which is
able to better utilize moisture.
Apply fertilizer, only__to
the lawn for the best protec-
tion of the environment.

By JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun Correspondent
Things certainly got a little
hairy late in the game before
Sebring's defense finally
found the way to stop Jensen
Beach quarterback John
Glenn and ran away with a
31-17 win over the youthful
Falcons.
Glenn, just a fresh-
man, was 13 of 23 Seb
passing for 243 yards
and two touchdowns
before the Blue Streak
secondary finally Jensei
came up with two
fourth-quarter inter-
ceptions to enable the
offense to finish off the visi-
tors.
There was no secret formu-
la for this Sebring
Homecoming game: Sebring
was able to run the football
evidenced by T.J. Williams's
224. yards and three TDs, and
the Streaks only passed when
they had to and had remark-
able success.
Williams tossed a 64-yard
touchdowit pass to Sam
Robinson on a halfback pass
and quarterback Ste .en
Former hooked up \ iih ihe


I


talented Robinson for a 75-
yard TD strike.
Jensen Beach, a new school
several miles north of Stuart,
could not run the football all
night but Glenn showed the
huge crowd exactly what
Falcons do best.
Jensen took over on downs
at its 45-yard line and drove
to the Sebring 20
ring before Glenn hit
eighth grader Blair
Johnson for a TD and
the extra point to
SBeach close the deficit to 25-
17 with 9:15 left in
S the game.
As if that hadn't
quieted things down enough
on the Blue side of Firemen's
Memorial Field, Sebring fum-
bled away the ensuing kickoff
when No. 40 lost the handle
on the football after calling
for a fair catch of a short kick
to keep the ball away from
Robinson.
That turn of events left
Glenn and the Falcons offense
staring at the potential to even
the score set up at the Sebring
31. Blair, who had 5 recep-
tions for 106. yards a TD,,
dropped a Glenn, aerial at the


goal line on the first play.
Glenn then connected with
Gerald Footman for a short
gain, but Sebring's Daniel
Burnett hammered him with a
jarring hit and the ball popped
up and Kenny Daniels
grabbed it in the air and gal-
loped to the Sebring 46 before
getting tackled.
Hamlin and the Sebring
offense mounted a time-con-
suming nine-play, 54-yard
scoring drive capped by
Williams's 1-yard TD plunge
with 3:47 left in the game.
Though it appeared
Williams scored the two-point
conversion just inside the
marker, the officials saw the
play differently.
Sebring's Ronnie Brassell
intercepted Glenn's next pass,
setting the Streak offense up
at the Jensen Beach 35 and
effectively caging the
Falcons.
Before Hamlin flipped the
celebrate switch, he reminded
his Streaks of their mistakes
that made the game tougher to
win than it had to be.
He also knows Sebring (3-2
.. overall) needs to be firing,on

Wildcats roar past Lakewood Ranch


By Graylin Smith
News-Sun correspondent
WAUCHULA Friday
night's pre-game festivities
between the Lakewood Ranch
Mustangs and Hardee
Wildcats felt like a 1970's
throwback as oldies music
played from the loudspeakers
at Wildcats stadium.
And it wasn't long before
the game itself was playing
out like a good ol', fast-
paced, rock'n'roll revival
with the Wildcats coming out
on top of a 47-33 win.-
The Mustangs came into
the game with a 1-3 record
compared to the Wildcat's 3-1
record.
Both teams were rebound-
ing from losses the week
prior; Lakewood Ranch fell to
Venice 33 to 7 and Hardee
was upset by Avon Park 10-7.
The game was a high scor-
ing affair as special teams and
defense sealed the win for the
Wildcats in the fourth quarter.
On the second play from
scrimmage, Lakewood Ranch
QB Niko Macias connected
with receiver Marcus McNeil
for a 69 touchdown strike at
the: 11i:02 mark to take an
early 7-0 lead.
Taking over from their own
30-yard line, the Wildcats
failed to make a first down
and were forced to punt.
The Hardee defense then
came alive as they forced a
fumble two plays later and
recovered on the Mustang
four-yard line.
Next play Jayquan Gandy
took the ball in the end-zone
for the touchdown with 7:43
left in the first quarter.
The ensuing extra-point
was blocked and Lakewood
Ranch lead 7-6.
Moments later, though, the
Wildcat special teams blocked
a Lakewood Ranch punt and
recovered for a touchdown by
Tyler Bumby.
i Jordan Grimsley converted
for 2 points to put Hardee up
14-7.
SJust as things looked to be
going the Wildcats way, the

Hardee coach Tim Price,.seen giving his players instructions at an earlier game, saw his
Wildcats bounce back from last week's loss at Avon Park to topple Lakewood Ranch, 47-33.


'Cats fumbled on a pitch-out
which was recovered by the
Mustangs at the Hardee 15.
Tack on a facemask penalty
and the Mustangs had a first
and goal from the seven-yard
line.
With 11:04 in the second
quarter, Lakewood Ranch's
Tim Brooks took a handoff
and scored from one
yard out. Ha
Tied 14-all,
Hardee's defense
again came to the
rescue as Antjuan Lakewoc
Jones intercepted a
Lakewood Ranch
pass.
Jimmy Cimeus then went to
work for the Wildcats as he
made the next three runs for a
total of 24 yards and a score
with 3:42 before halftime -
Cimeus finished the game.
with 97 yards and 4 touch-
downs.
The 21-14 Wildcat lead
would be the difference at the
half.
In the third quarter,
Lakewood Ranch went back

to the air with Tim Brooks
moving from running back to
quarterback.
Brooks hooked up with
McNeil for his second touch-
down with 4:28 in the third.
The point-after failed and
the score was now saw
Hardee up by a narrow 21-20
margin.
A Wildcat fumble
Lee on their next play
appeared to give
momentum to the
Mustangs.
Ranch But again, the
Hardee defense
came up big as
Jimmy Cimeus,
playing defensive back, inter-
cepted a Brooks pass.
Now on offense, Cimeus
scored on a 45-yard run as
time ran out in the third quar-
ter to push the lead to 27-20
heading into the fourth.
The final quarter began
with Lakewood Ranch again
ripping Hardee through the
air.
Brooks connected with
McNeil for a 30-yard pass and


then on the next play scored
from 5 yards out on a quarter-
back keeper.
Cimeus fumbled the ensu-
ing kickoff but recovered as
the Wildcats began their next
series on their own one-yard
line.
Just as it looked like the
Mustangs luck had changed,
Jayquan Gandy busted up the
middle for a 96-yard touch-
down with 9:35 left.
Hardee now lead 33-27 and
was ready to put the game
away.
The Wildcat defense again
held and Jordan Grimsley
returned a punt to the
Mustang I-yard line.
A penalty brought the ball
back, but with first and goal,
Cimeus scored from 4 yards
out to extend the Wildcat lead
40 to 27.
Alas, Lakewood Ranch
would again burn Hardee with
the pass.

and Carlton


Thomas Oh my!


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
'Running back prodigy
Carlton Thomas hit close to
the 250 yard mark for
rushing as he led the host
Frostproof Bulldogs to a 35-0
victory over the Avon Park
Red Devils Friday night.
Avon Park led off the series
with a very strong drive,
grinding out six first downs
over five minutes, but came
up short of a touchdown in
what would turn out to be a
very physical game.
Without Casey McKibben,
who last week kicked the
field goal that gave the Red
Devils the lead and finally the
win against the ranked
Hardee Wildcats, the Devils'


drive was defeated at the 14-
yard line on an incomplete
pass while trying to convert
the fourth down.
With little concern about
field position, the Avon Park
offense gave the ball up to the
Bulldogs, but Thomas struck
and struck hard when he
broke to the outside and on
his second carry of the series
and ran for an 86-yard touch-
down.
The point after was good
and the Bulldogs were sud-
denly on top 7-0.
With that carry, Thomas
captured 96-yards rushing in
just the first quarters,
On their second possession,

would rush for 246 yards and four touchdowns in the 35-0
Bulldog win.

Jamisse Gordon, No. 8 on
.the Sharks, serves up a net-
clearing volley Saturday dur-
ing week two of the inaugu-
ral season of the City of
Avon Park Recreation
Department youth volleyball
league one of several new
programs at the 207 E.
State St. facility. The rec
department is taking regis-
trations for youth basketball,
men's flag football, family
martial arts and an athletic
performance group.


DEVILS
Continued from 1D

Avon Park again pounded out
first downs and was moving
well until a holding penalty
killed the drive and forced a
punt.
But the Red Devils' defense
held fast and contained the
'Dogs, holding Thomas to
minus-three yards on the next
series.
The Devils' offensive
machine went back to work
on the short gains, and pro-
duced six more first downs on
another long drive, this time
from their own 22-yard line.
The Bulldogs were even
caught flat-footed on a deci-
sion to fake a punt on fourth
and seven with a snap directly
to Avon Park's Virgil Cooper.
Cooper's ability to change
direction, and the surprise,
captured another first down
for Avon Park, keeping the
long drive alive.
A Frostproof interception
on the next play killed the
Devil's only chance of the
evening to score as time was
running out in the first half.
A good kick-off return by
Frostproof at the beginning of
the second half
put them at about mid-field.
On his very first carry in
the series, Thomas again
struck gold, this time on a


cut-back for 55 yards.
The point after was good,
and the score was now 14-0
Frostproof and the once-tight
contest started to see a shift in
momentum.'
A fumble by Avon Park on
the next kick-off return, hand-
ed Thomas another touch-
down on Frostproof's next
drive.
From just nine yards out,
Bulldog quarterback Donald
Brown seemed to be keeping
the ball on a wide sweep to
the right, and was being taken
down by the Red Devil
defense at the eight, when he
flipped the ball to a trailing
Thomas who turned on the
juice and shot forward for the
touchdown.
Down 21-0, the Devils
were on a slippery slope, but
not yet out of the running, and
they again showed their
tenacity as they drove the ball
back deep into Frostproof ter-
ritory with a long series of
short runs.
,The Red Devils got to the
23-yard line and achieved
three first downs before relin-
quishing control, this time on
a fourth down penalty back
into Bulldog possession.
A 28-yard completed pass
from Brown allowed the dogs
to score yet again bringing the
score to 28-0 Frostproof.
Another Avon Park fumble
set up a Brown to Thomas
pass for 31 yards and another


touchdown.
Now down 35-0, a deflated
Avon Park team regained pos-
session, but no longer had the
drive to move the ball and it
was one-two-three-punt for
the Red Devils.
On the next series, Thomas
again crossed the goal line -
this time on a 35-yard sprint,
but the run was called back on
a penalty, and Frostproof's
drive and the game were com-
plete as the clock ticked off
the final seconds.
All told, Thomas would run
for 246 yards and four touch-
downs for the Bulldogs.
"You got 'to give credit
where credit is due," Avon
Park head coach Earnest
Perkins said. "That young
man (Thomas) is a great ath-
lete.
"Fortunately, this loss does
not take anything away, but
we really have to dig deep
again for next week," he con-
tinued. "It's back to work for
us on Monday."
Of concern for the Red
Devils and to show how phys-
ical a game it was, Avon Park
running backs Teddy Allen
and Steffon Henson both left
the game late in the fourth
quarter with injuries.
Both Allen, with com-
plaints of ankle pain, and
Henson, with a knee injury,
were taken by EMT's after the
game.

Running like a big boy


-a day in the park


I was overwhelmed with
fatherly pride as 2-year-old
Kaden ran away from me.
Usually, such explosive
feats of endurance result in
scolding, time outs, an occa-
sional spanking and the
bemused or amused expres-
sions of Wal-Mart customers.
I had taken a much needed
physical, emotional and, yes,
mental, reprieve from my
own physical training.
By Wednesday, more than
two weeks passed since my
last spirited bike ride or run
of any measurable distance.
The kid and I were at
Highlands Hammock State
Park while momma wrapped
up at work. We parked on the
main road, just before the
loop begins.
We played in the big,
mostly-open field that was
slow to absorb a recent rain
shower.
Kaden made quick work of
finding every area that con-
stituted a puddle.
Soon, he was shirtless. I
told him to play in the sun,
hoping he wouldn't catch a
wet chill as the afternoon
cooled into evening.
As I read up on the park's
history at a display, Kaden
continued his splashing.
Catching cold couldn't-
concern him less.
Then, out of the corner of
my eye, I spotted a jogger
running counter-clockwise on
the loop.
"Richard!" Kaden yelled.
I was impressed. The little
man had met Richard only
one time.
But, that one time was at
Hammock Park and it was
after a run.
Before I could finish mar-
veling at his recall, the
diminishing pitter-patter of
little camoflauge-green
"Crocs" had replaced the
splashing.'
S "I wanna run," Kaden
called back.
I don't know what
impressed me more, his
enthusiasm for the run or that
he was keeping pace with
Richard.
(I later learned Richard
was more than half way
through an 11-mile run.)
When I realized Kaden
wasn't turning back until he
caught Richard, I gave chase.
I jogged and jogged and
jogged and still had to job
a little more.
I finally caught up to him,
but the kid simply didn't
want to quit.
Along the way, he bee-
lined toward and into every
puddle on the road, reversing
course a:half-dozen times to
make sure the water got its
fill of his little feet.
'Let's go back, son,' I'd
say.
"I want to see Mr.
Richard," he'd respond
before continuing in.the
direction we last saw
Richard.
I have to go back and
measure the distance, but I'm
guestimating the tike finally
reversed direction 1/8 to 1/4
mile into his run.
He only walked long
enough for mie to demon-
strate how to bodily exagger-
ate oxygen intake, impress- ,
ing anybody within earshot
of his exercising exploits.
After a huff and a puff, he
egged me on with a "C'mon
dad!" while all I saw was his
pint-sized backside drawing
away from me,
There was something dif-
ferent' about him.
No longer were his arms
flailing behind him, as is typ-
ical with newly-running chil-
dren.
No, he had form. He was
running like I run.
OK, that's not fair to

Kaden, but you get my drift
- he was running like a big
boy.
His arms pulled him along
as much as they stabilized
him.
If he wasn't wet enough
already, I showered him with
praise.
We high-fived each other.
We did the fist-bump. He
asked me to pick him up.
But, when I told him to
catch his breath first, he
inhaled loudly and deeply,
then took off again. I never
had to carry him.
Kaden was running away,
and I was happy about it for
a change.
By the time we left
Hammock Park, I estimated
he ran almost a 1/2 mile in
his sandals.
With my scheduled hiatus
drawing to a close, 2-year-
old Kaden was an inspira-
tion.
Maybe I'll wake the kid up
before his morning bottle for
a quick trot around the block.

in this Friday's district opener
with Hardee County.
"We made a lot of mistakes,
I mean, our extra point,"
Hamlin said referring to
Robinson's second extra-
point kick getting blocked.
"That drives me nuts. There
were so many little things that
we should have done better.
We're better than that and I
was upset with that. But I'm
happy with the win. A lot of
people contributed tonight.
"First off, Steven Fortner,
that kid came out here and got
the start and did a great job.
He threw a touchdown pass.
He was 2 for 2. T.J.
(Williams) did a great job and
Daniel Burnett came in an ran
the ball well. The line did a
lot better. We had a great pick
by Ron (Brassell), so, we had
big plays out the people, but
the little things weren't where
they needed to be."
Hamlin and his staff have
known the importance of get-
ting the ball into Williams's
hands, but that has been tough
in the previous two games

playing quite a bit of quarter-

"We've got to get him the
ball and we've got to get it to
him often," Hamlin said of
Williams."Tonight we stayed
on that course, stayed on that
game plan. And when he
touches the ball that many
times, good things I think, are
gonna happen for us and they
did tonight.
"We got Sam involved a lit-
tle bit," he said of Robinson,
who also kicks and punts
while not busy catching TD
passes or intercepting
them. "The more and more we
can get him involved and T.J.,
we're gonna keep on improv-

Sebring's defense forced a
three-and-out to open the
game and the Streaks took
over on their own 7, mounting
an 11-play, 93-yard scoring
drive.
Williams ripped off runs of
20, 8, 8 and 9 yards and
Fortner hit Brannen Dorman
for 21 yards midway through
the drive.
Then it was back to
Williams, who polished off
the drive with a 7-yard TD
run around the right side of
the Falcon defense.
Robinson's kick put
Sebring up 7-0 with 5:12 left
in the first period.
The Falcons came flying
right back, with Glenn com-
pleting a couple of short pass-
es before hitting Footman for
a 64-yard TD on a screen
pass. The kick by Levom
Fitzpatrick tied. the game at 7-

Following the ensuing

drive with a plunge from the
four with 4:22 left, raising the
lead to 19-7.
The Falcons responded
with a nine-play, 80-yard
drive capped by a 20-yard
Fitzpatrick field goal to close
to 19-10 with 49 seconds left
in the second.
In the second half, Fortner
hit Robinson for the 75-yard
TD catch, with Robinson
stumbling a bit and recover-
ing to do a flip into the end
zone for a perfect 10 score by
the judges, but a 15-yard
penalty by the officials.
Yet another missed extra-
point left Sebring leading 25-
10, and that's when Glenn and
the Falcons flew a little to
close for comfort.
Leading Sebring's defense
was Isaac Fernandez with two
solo sacks and Kyle Long, Ty
Graham and Daniels also
sacked Glenn.
Sebring amassed 446 total
yards (286 yards rushing) and
held the Falcons to 281 yards

Fortner was a perfect 2 for

High School Football


Pirates send Dragons off the plank


The News-Sun www.newssun.cor,


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID From the
beginning, the Homecoming
crowd at Roger Scaryorough
Memorial Stadium was anx-
ious with anticipation.
For the celebration of the
festive weekend, the honoring
of the king and queen, as well
as for the football to be
played.
Early indications were that
this would be a shoot-out of
the highest order, with fire-
works ablaze.
The early promise, howev-
er, was short-lived, as the vis-
iting Pirates of Braden River
pulled a homecoming mutiny,
stranding the Green Dragons
with a 38-14 win.
Things didn't start great for
the home team, as Braden
River made short work of its'
first possession.
Quarterback Willie McNeal
connected with wide-
out Justin Stanley on Bradel
the first play from
scrimmage for 39 3
yards before McNeal Lake
himself rolled around
end for another six 1
yard. I
The Pirate's big,
bruising running back, Tim
Crider, then rumbled of fif-
teen yards on two carries
before McNeal zipped outside
on a 20-yard scoring run less
than two minutes into the
game for a 7-0 Braden River
lead.
But the Dragons response
gave rise to the expectations
on the night.
Chevontray Wilson dodged
and darted around Pirate
defenders for 26 yards, before
quarterback Conlin Veley
kept it for a one-yard run to
knot things up, 7-7.
The Lake Placid defense
seemed to find its' toe-hold on
the next Pirate possession,
forcing a punt that Wilson
made a dazzling return of,


n

getting the ball to the Braden
River 30.
Wilson then ripped off 19
yards on four carries and with
a Veley to Albert Calderon
screen pass gaining another 4
yards, the Dragons were on
the verge of another score.
That score came soon
enough as Veley connected
with Evaton Bailey to put
Lake Placid up 14-7 with 1:54
to go in the opening quarter.
But the Pirates weren't
done.
A long pass play and a 15-
yard penalty brought Braden
River to the Dragon 20, with
Jojua Bell soon blasting in to
even things up in the waning
seconds of the period.
And that's where the fire-
works pretty much ended for
the home team as the Pirate
offensive line had staked its'
claim and was now on a roll.
"We're a second half
team," Braden River
head coach Josh
S Hunter said. "We were
S worried about their
'lacid offense and were glad
we were able to stay
even wit them early
on.
"They played hard
and their defensive schemes, I
thought, were going to give us
some trouble," he continued.
"But I'm proud of our big
boys up front, they really
established themselves and.
allowed us to control the
offensive line."
That soon became apparent
as Crider and Bell began
grounding out chunks of
yardage 4, 6 and ten yards at a
time over the Pirates next
three series each resulting in
touchdowns after extended
drives.
The Dragon defense was
game, but got worn down
with the constant pounding.
And with the offense now
in comeback mode, risks were
taken and mistakes became

magnified and seized upon by
an opportunistic Braden River
defense.
"We're just making too
many mental mistakes and
beating ourselves," Wilson


said afterward. "They were an
explosive offensive team and
that was probably the best
game they played. But we've
just got to work harder and
get things right."
