Smith wants to ride again, make cycling safer in county


News-Sun photo by KATARA, SIMMONS
Darrel Smith talks about his injuries, his recovery and his new
'vendetta' to make cycling safer in Highlands County. Smith was
struck by a car Aug. 31 while riding his bike on the Hammock
Road Recreation Trail and arrived home from the hospital Oct. 8.

SEBRING When Highlands
Hammock State Park Ranger Darrel
Smith went home Aug. 31 his day had
been routine.
He'went to work about 11 a.m., rid-
ing his bike approximately six miles
from his house.
His final task of the eight-hour day
was digging a hole for a French drain
with a shovel and pick ax.
"It wasn't an unusual day for me,"
Smith said Tuesday. "As far as I
remember, I didn't do anything differ-
ent than any other day."
Though it was the middle of the
afternoon, Smith was 'till in bed,
wearing bedclothes and blue socks

to see who came to the front door,
speak to guests sitting on brown
couches on either side of him, or
watch the TV.
"I remember absolutely nothing
from a half hour before the accident
until two weeks ago," Smith said.
He left the state park about 7:30
p.m. He pedaled his recumbent trike

Sebring High School seniors dive

into the world of Canterbury Tales

SEBRING
I I otivating high school seniors is eas\
just don't let them kno%\ that.
Under the guise of fun. English
IV students at Sebring High School
learned more about Geoffery Chaucer and the
Middle Ages than they ever would ha'e
imagined.
Student Carlos Roman taught his fellow\
students, through their hungry stomachs. ho%.
to make milk that requires no refrigeration.
"Back in medieval times the\ couldn't get
milk all the time so they would crush
almonds with a little white wine." Roman
said of his almond milk, just one of hundreds
of tidbits discovered in the last month during
the Medieval literature studies brought to life
during Chaucer days. "You could use this just
like milk.and even make butter."
Almond milk was made by boiling the
crushed almonds, and according to his project
it was a main ingredient in many medieval
recipes.
Chaucer Days is the culmination of the'
Canterbury Tales studies, when students show
off their projects, which include period-spe-
cific outfits and food each unique to a dif-
ferent Chaucer character..
Roman picked the Manciple and concocted
pottage of rice, a thick rice dish, using his
almond milk to add a unique medieval
authenticity.
An ensemble that went way above what
was required was the Yeoman of William

Parson Lupe Paniagua is more than happy to educate her fellow students about one of the
only "nice" characters from Canterbury Tales. "There were not a lot of nice people on the
pilgrimage ... he was the only nice one," she said. "I'm really nice too and like to help peo,
pie so it related to me." Meanwhile,. Knight Miguel Quinones and Squire Ernest Martinez

some additional time Monday, preparing for their presentation to their fellow students. They

Commissioners


approve director

job descriptions,

hold off on hiring
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevinshutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Having approved job
descriptions for four new division director
positions, county commissioners must
decide which will come first the chick-
en or the egg.
With County Administrator Carl Cool's
retirement coming in June, the board will
,determine how\ to proceed'- fill the direc-
tor positions now or hire a new chief exec- to
utive officer, allowing him or her to build
their own team.
"You can't be a team leader if you had no
role in selecting the team," said Ruth
Handley, former School Board of
Highlands County superintendent.
As the elected superintendent from 1984
to 1992, Handley said she revised her
administrative organizational chart, select-
ing her own senior staff.
She did so with her board's approval and
after a transition period, which she recom-
mended Tuesday during discussion of the
new positions.
The directors responsible for Public
Safety, Public Works, Community Services
and Administrative Services will report
directly to the administrator.
Formerly, the administrator and county
administrator directly supervised about
half the county's departments each.
"I am uncertain of how equitable salaries
were and how supervisory duties were
divided among the department heads,"
Handley said in a memorandum she gave
the commissioners. "The board realized the
need' to define a management team that
could better organize and oversee the work
within each area of service to the public."

Campbell probes illegal voting possibilities _


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING While there
have been concerns about ille-
gal voting in the Sunshine
State, Highlands County
Supervisor of Elections loe
Campbell said there are some
safeguards preventing non-cit-
izens from using their Florida
driver's licenses to leverage
themselves a voter registration
card..
Campbell outlined what
he'd discovered during an
appearance before the


Quest for answers began after questions
from American Party of Florida forum


American Party of Florida's
regular meeting earlier this
month. It was at a similar APF
gathering in February where
Campbell was asked what kept
non-citizens who qualify for
driver licenses from using
those documents to acquire a
voter's card.
It took Campbell seven
months and a lot of effort to
come up with the final answer,


bouncing from the Florida
Division of Motor Vehicles all
the way up to Florida
Secretary of State Kurt
Browning before he found out
the protocol.
"Apparently the administra-
tors don't have all of the
answers. We had to get down
to the people who actually do
the data entering to find out
exactly how it works," he said.


It all boils down to a special
computer program that allows
operators at the Florida Bureau
of Motor Vehicles and the
Division of Elections to deter-
mine whether those who quali-
fy for licenses also are eligible
to vote. The informational sys-
tem is known as the "Driver
And Vehicle Information
Database," or DAVID for
short.

Rumor control:

No 'body' was

found in AP
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christv@newssun.com
AVON PARK What was
reported to School Resource
Officer James Parker as pos-
sible human remains turned
out to be "non-human relat-
ed," according to the
Medical Examiners Office in
Lakeland.
Avon Park Police
Department Cdr. Mike
Rowan said the animal
remains were originally dis-
covered by an Avon Park
High School student.
The student found the
remains Sunday afternoon on
Ernest E. Sims Street near
Hopewell Academy, then
reported his findings to the
SRO Monday morning.
The discovery sparked sev-
eral rumors around the coun-
ty about the possibility of a
body being found, which
reportedly reached as far as
the television stations in
Tampa.
"We would like to send a
message out to the man that
reported it that this was very
commendable," he said. "I
would like to see more stu-
dents get involved in any
activities they would like to
talk to their SRO about."
Early Monday detectives
from the APPD located the
remains and sent them off to
the Medical Examiner.
"They determined it was
non-human related," Rowan
said, "possibly a hog, cow or
goat."
The animal. remains were
an estimated four to six feet
off of the street on the side of
the road. According to Rowan
they had been there for "at
least a couple of days."

Man busted for

having cocaine,

concealed gun
By IREX CHRISrT
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING A keen eye
led to the arrest of a man car-
rying a concealed weapon
and a large amount of crack
cocaine.
Late Friday night, deputies
with the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office Special
Investigations Unit made
contact with citizens in the
area of Martin Luther King Jr.
Boulevard and Lemon Street
in Sebring.
Deputies Ralph Miranda
and Ernest Gelinas
approached Ormaine
Hawthorne,
26, of
Sebring, on a
public side-
walk.
Miranda
told Gelinas
'a2 i he thought he
Hawthorne saw a firearm
in Haw-
thorne's waistband, the report
stated.
Fearing for their safety, the
two officers restrained
Hawthorne and discovered he
was carrying a 9 mm semiau-
tomatic pistol in his waist-
band, partially covered by his
shirt, the report said.
Searching Hawthorne fur-
ther, a plastic cigar tube was
found in .his pants pocket
allegedly containing 1.3
grams of crack cocaine.
The packaging and amount
is consistent with street-level
sales, Gelinas wrote in his
report.
Hawthorne was charged
with carrying a concealed
weapon, possession of
cocaine with intent to sell


within 1,000 feet of a church,
and possession of narcotic
equipment.
He remained in the
Highlands County Jail late
Tuesday afternoon in lieu of a
$6,500 bond.

Sebring's High sets personal


best finish at Hawaii Ironman


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
Patrick High was about 16 seconds shy
of taking the top podium spot in his age
group Saturday at the pinnacle of triathlon
competition the Hawaii Ironman.
The 16-second void was filled with a
first-place finish time oft9 hours, 19 min-
utes for the 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike
and 26.2 run world championship race.
The second place finisher in High's 45-
49 age division came in at 9:26 minutes;
third place was 9:32 minutes.
High finished fourth, at 9:35:19, netting
him 130th overall out of 1,800 contestants.
The fifth-place finisher in High's division
was some 10 minutes behind.
"When you come to Hawaii, you want to
get a podium spot because that means
you're one of the best in the world," High
said, as if merely discussing facts and not
his own performance in a grueling grudge
match of who is most fit swimmers,
cyclists or runners. "This town is all about
Ironman, the Ironman World
Championships. You see athletes every-
where, you see the best in the world every-
where."
In his ttjrd -HalawiiIronnan. held at
Kailua-Koai~high'w:p.. 'has aort both
Heartland Trilthlons held-In Sebring set
his personal-best time and finished a spot
higher on the podium than.his previous
efforts in 2003 and '04.
His support crew included fellow
Highlands County triathletes Jim and
Laura Griffin, Steve Gordon and Cherie
Starr.
High's wife Nancy, who accompanied
him in '03 and '04, stayed home with their
children, he said.
The Griffins have volunteered at Kona
before. Gordon and Starr were first timers.
From 5-10 a.m. on race day, they helped
with "traffic control," ensuring the racers
got where they needed to, go without taking
shortcuts.
"This is the epitome of our sport, so
there's a certain curiosity about what it's
going t6 be like," Gordon said. "It did not
disappoint."
,But what seemed to impress him the
most, was a mystical kind of power one
the competitors either embraced or suc-
cumbed to.
It's an experience Gordon can describe,
but full appreciation can only be achieved
by experiencing it, he said.
"It's part of what makes the race what it
is," he said. "Some people grow with the
power of the island and their performance
shows that. Other people are overpowered
by that."
High described some of that "power" as
the distractions of a race that is equal parts
festival, vacation and pre-race gut checks.
"I:did not get caught up in the hype,"
45-year-old High said. "You can use rest-

less, nervous energy unproductively over
here and many, many people do. It's -the
exception to have a good race."
It goes with the territory, he said,
explaining some people begin to question
themselves, wondering whether they're
ready and if they have what it takes.
"When you start comparing yourself to
the rest of the world, you should have self
doubt," he said.
Despite a fourth-place finish, High's
-race was relatively uneventful. His energy
ebbed and flowed as he covered the course,
completing the swim in an 1:01; the bike
in 5:05 and the marathon in 3:24.
"You've just got to muscle through the
times that are painful," he said.
Next on High's agenda is the 70.3 World
Championships, a half-Ironman, in
Clearwater.
SHe has 3>2 weeks to prepare, including a
week's recovery ending Saturday. His
swim muscles recovered in just a few days.
He'll have his cycling legs back by
Thursday and will take his first run this
weekend.

Mclntyre to talk appraisals

at Voters' League meeting

County Property Appraiser was battling for
new tax structure in Tallahassee this week


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Highlands
County Property Appraiser
Raymond McIntyre will have
the latest information on tax
cutting proposals when he
appears Thursday evening at
the Highlands County Voters
League Meeting. McIntyre
first revealed the plan in
September after being elected
as the chairman of the
Property Appraisers,
Association of Florida.
The Highlands County
Voters League meets the third
Thursday of each month at
Homer's Restaurant. Dinner
begins at 5 ,p.m. with the
meeting commencing at 6
p.m.
McIntyre spent most of the
earlier part of this week in
Tallahassee attempting to get
lawmakers to consider
a suggestion put for-
ward by the PAAF.
That proposal
would have seen
appraisal values move
from 100 percent
down to 75 percent in
a phased-in program.
The gradual implementation
was designed to allow com-
munities to adjust to decreas-
ing revenues incrementally,
rather than being hit with a
single blast, which could hap-
pen should residents vote
themselves a super exemption
as has been proposed by
Governor Charlie Crist.,
However, in a Tuesday
interview from Tallahassee,
McIntyre said it appeared the
legislature had pretty well
decided in which direction
they wanted to head and it
wasn't in the direction of the
PAAF proposal.
McIntyre already has
addressed the issue to a num-
ber of different local organi-
zations, including the
Highlands County
Homeowners Executive
Board.
One of the more appealing
aspects of the PAAF plan
would have been tax relief to
commercial and industrial
Properties as well as resi-
dences which now do not ben-
efit from the homestead
exemption helping to
spread the notion of tax
reduction across the board.
He said members of the
PAAF had talked with some
state legislators about their
idea to reduce assessments
and although they liked the
proposal, the suggestion was
not in line for consideration.
"The response we get is,
'That sounds good and has
some merit, but that train
already has left the station,'
and it's really too late for us,"
McIntyre explained.
Under the current legisla-
tion, the number of amend-
ments for property tax pro-
posed for voters has moved
from four to six. McIntyre
said those would include,such
things as a 25 percent exemp-
tion for first-time home buy-
ers, an additional $50,000
homestead exemption, porta-
bility for the state's Save Our
Homes program up to $1 mil-
lion of property valuations,
the so-called working water-
front designation, the afford-


able housing provisions and a
proposed 100 percent exemp-
tion on property taxes for
low-income seniors may also
be floated on the ballot.
"They took some testimony
on this but I don't think it's
swayed them or changing
their positions much," he
said.
McIntyre said the current
proposal will bring extra
work for his office.
"I can tell you it may result
in our office keeping two tax
rolls because a lot of these
new proposals do not apply to
schools but they do apply to
cities and counties, so it will
be more burdensome as far as
the bookkeeping goes," he
said.
In addition to the proposed
tax cuts and exemptions,
McIntyre speculated that the
2008 real estate market
also will have a pro-
found effect on what
people pay or don't
Spay to the tax col-
lector.
"We're moving into
lyre a very static market
anyway and there
maybe some decreases. When
you throw all these exemp-
tions into the mix we're
probably going to see some
negative growth," he said.
As far as the PAAF propos-
al,' McIntyre said the legisla-
ture still is "missing the boat"
when it came to giving tax
relief to retail, commercial
and other non-homestead
properties.
"That's people we hear
screaming Lne loudest it's
the business owners and those
kind of folks. They're not
going to see any kind of help
other than the rollback
requirement," 'he said. "That
does, in a way, put a cap on
their property tax.".

Don't forget your dancing
shoes for the Jitterbug con-
test.
The fair provides seniors

Here are some food safety tips to
ensure thorough cooking:

* Cover food with a lid or plastic wrap to
help lock in the heat and moisture.
* Stir and rotate your food during cooking.
* Observe standing time called for in recipe
or package directions. (Food often finishes

A change in the "Kiddie Tax" law
effective in 2007 may increase the
amount of tax owed on your children's
investment income. This change in the
law was put in place to.discourage par-
ents from transferring assets to their
kids in order to save on taxes.
Some wealthy families were eagerly
awaiting the effective date of a new law
that wipes out capital-gains taxes for
those in the two lowest income-tax
brackets (often children and the elderly)
in 2008, 2009 and 2010. But now
Congress has effectively dismantled that
income-shifting strategy with its latest
expansion of the "kiddie tax" the
second change in just over a year.
Currently, the law that taxes certain
investment income of children at their
* parents' higher rate applies to kids
under 18. (Before 2006, it applied to
children under 14.) In 2007, the first
$850 of a child's investment income is
tax free and the next $850 is taxed at his
or her own rate. But any unearned
income in excess of $1,700 in 2007 is
taxed at the parents' presumably higher
tax rate. (These limits are adjusted for
inflation and will be slightly higher in
2008 and future years.)
Starting in 2008, the kiddie-tax will
be expanded to include dependents
under 19 and dependent full-time stu-

dents under 24.
Children who provide
more than half of
their own support are
not affected by the
kiddie-tax change.
What does that
mean for you? If your
children are 18
through 23 by the end
of the year, they can
still take advantage of
,the 5 percent rate on
long-term capital "


gains that's available to taxpayers in the
two lowest brackets. Higher-income tax-
payers pay a maximum capital-gains tax
of 15 percent on both qualified divi-
dends and profits on investments that
are held longer than one year. Interest
income and profits on short-term invest-

ments held less than one year are taxed
at ordinary income-tax rates ranging
from 10-35 percent.
Therefore, now might be the time that
you want to consider giving appreciated
assets to children 18 or older to sell
before the end of the year, either to pay
for college or to minimize your family's
tax bill. An individual can give each
recipient up to $12,000 this year without
triggering the gift tax. (Married couples
can jbintly give up to $24,000 per recip-


ient.)
As an example, let's say you and your
spouse gave your child $24,000 worth
of appreciated stock, of which $12,000
represented profit when sold. Shifting
from your 15 percent capital-gains rate
to your child's 5 percent rate would
save $1,200 in taxes.
The latest change in the kiddie-tax
rules makes saving for education
expenses through a 529 plan more
attractive than ever. As long as the
money is used for qualified college
expenses, withdrawals from 529 plans
are tax-free and avoid the kiddie-tax
issue altogether.
Now is the time to put together your
year-end tax planning strategies to mini-
mize your 2007 tax liability. It is
always advisable to consult with a qual-
ified tax professional before implement-
ing any tax strategy. Transfers to chil-
dren and kiddie-tax issues are one of the
many issues that should be dealt with
prior to the end of the year.

SMITH
Continued from 1A
Smith and his bike.
Smith, 60, spent the next seven days in a
drug-induced coma. He suffered a "small"
brain hemorrhage, broke his right wrist, his
pelvis in three places, damaged his hip joint,
broke his clavicle in four places, punctured a
lung, broke three ribs and had road rash on
his back.
"The doctors said 40 percent of my right
side was damaged," Smith said
But, he said his brain hemorrhage was
minor because he was wearing a helmet.
Smith, who's been riding seriously for 11
years, describes himself as the third safest
cyclist in Highlands County. Only Vic and
Lee Mears, a couple in their 80's, are more
cautious, he said.
"I take less chances because I'm a big
chicken," Smith said. Then, referring to the
intersection where he was struck, "That's a
wide-open area, so why didn't I see her?"
His mission, now that he has a second
chance, is to raise awareness between cyclists
and motorists. Smith doesn't want what hap-
pened to him to happen to anybody else.
In addition, he wants to petition the county
and the sheriff to improve safety measures,
such as affordable engineering fixes to a less-
than-perfect recreation trail and better
enforcement of laws to ensure golf carts and
non-designated motor vehicles don't use the
recreation path and rethinking traffic controls
on the trail.
"It's been a funky ordeal," Smith said.
He takes sleeping pills to sleep and antide-
pressants because he's more emotional. He
credits radio and newspaper reports with
building a prayer chain that sped his recov-
ery.
Smith can barely move his right leg and,
doesn't move about without a walker, but
he's been told he'll make a full recovery.
"The overwhelming support I got from
what I thought was a few friends has become
a huge family to me," he said.


VOTING
Continued from 1A
program to see if there are
felony, convictions or other
impediments that would dis-
qualify a person from casting
a legal ballot. Campbell said
that's where the safeguards
occur.
"When they're going
through the protocol, at the
bottom of the final-"screen-
there is a box for what they
call 'conditions,' that means
if a driver has a felony con-
viction or is not a legal citizen
of the United States it stops
the registration there and does
not allow it to continue and
then they notify our 'office,"
Campbell explained.
Despite many and varied
contacts Sbetween Campbell,
the' Florida Secretary of
State's office and various
conversations both in the
Division of Elections and
Bureau of Motor Vehicles, it
was some grassroots sleuthing
that got him the answers he
sought.


HIRING

Commissioner Barbara
Stewart last week (Stewart
wasn't at Tuesday's meeting),
Handley said it wouldn't be
fair to either the new adminis-
trator or the new directors to
fill the latter before the for-
mer.
Commissioner Don Bates
extended Handley's argu-
ment, suggesting the whole
reorganization effort might be
contingent on the manage-
ment style of a new adminis-
trator.
"We put ourselves in a
box," he said, referencing the
reorganization timeline in
light of Cool's retirement.
"We complicated the situa-
tion."

Smith's grandchildren awaited his Oct. 8

His doctor announced weeks ago that
Smith will be able to ride again.
But, will he want to?
"I'm going to ride the bike again," he said,
noting he's not throwing away a $3,000 bike
just because of a crash. "I determined while I

Adding to the authenticity
of the outfit, his arrows were
adorned with real peacock-
feathered fletchings.
While some of the less- .
well-off characters of the sto-
ries made breaded or inex-
pensive foods, Sauers discov-
ered his character was well
off due to his high profile.
"His job was to guard his
lord's forest," he said.
"He was also a soldier and
came when called on by the
king."
The resulting food was
ground meat lumped into
balls with sauce, called
dumpes.
"So far everyone seems to
like it," he said.
One of the less wealthy
characters was the Parson,
depicted by Lupe Paniagua.
Although poor monetarily, he
was rich in his generosity.
"He is not that rich, but
gives money to the poor,"
Paniagua said.
"(The project) taught me a
lot about my character. There
were not a lot of nice people
on the'pilgrimage ... he was
the only nice one."
The Parson would walk
around helping people and
the sick, but wouldn't neglect
his job and always found the
time to go to church.
His diet, however, was not
rich in meat like the Yeoman.


Commission Chairman C.
Guy Maxcy wants the new
CEO to "hit the road run-
ning," and not have to worry
about filling four senior
vacancies.
When he announced his
retirement several months
ago, Cool promised to refrain
from the process of selecting
his successor to avoid contro-
versy.
Asked for his input, Cool
suggested "thoughts to pon-
der."
First, he directed Human
Resources Director John
Minor to hold off on announc-
ing the vacancies until the
board decides how to move
forward.
Second, he discussed the
merits of a transition team,
ensuring "key people in the
right place," to avoid a situa-


tion in which a new adminis-
trator must learn his or her job
while hiring and training his
top assistants.
Third, Cool suggested hir-
ing a "head-hunter" firm (as
previously agreed by the
board, which will also employ
a search committee), then
seeking its recommendation
about the directors.
"I was happy with the
organization the way it was
and I'm happy with it as it is
now," Cool said, reminding
the board it was their initia-
tive and decision to restruc-
ture the chain of command.
He said hiring the directors
now under his tutelage or
after installing a new .admin-
istrator have their trade-offs.
"It does not matter to me,"
Cool said. "Either way it will
work."

Yeoman William Sauers shows off his project as part of
Chaucer Days at Sebring High School to fellow students
(from left) Cortni Mays, Tiffany Screws and Brittney Spires.


Instead, Paniagua brought a
relatively simple loaf of
bread which, while delicious,
was cheap enough for her
character to afford..
A fake bottle of wine was
included in the presentation,
because as she said, "wine
was the main thing back
then," adding a real touch to
what a parson might.have
seen in his daily diet.
Boys will be boys, and the
Knight and Squire were a
perfect example with an
entire weekend and some
time Monday devoted to
authentic outfitsiaind authen-
tic-looking props.
Miguel Quinones was the
Knight, and playing the role
of his womanizing squire son
was Ernest Martinez.
"The Squire is the guy that


got all the girls," Martinez
said. "That was his focus."
The Knight was picked
specifically by Quinones in
the first-come, first-served
high school world of charac-
ter assignments.
"I always wanted to be a
knight," he admitted. "I wish
I cbuld live in the Middle
Ages sometimes."
Thedesire to be a specific
character was also echoed by
Sauers.
"The fact that I like
archery as a hobby helped,"
he said. "When we had to
sign up for a character I went
straight for the Yeoman."
While the seniors are not
far from graduating, this
project showed, they are still
learning with the enthusiasm
of freshmen.

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.

Sometimes it's better t

know what's in the next


It really is a comforting
thing, knowing what is in
store for you before it hap-
pens. It is almost as if you
are able to plan it out your-
self. Slowly, but surely, you
play out the details in your
mind. The people, the place,
the actions, and even the
words are carefully examined
and set into place. All before
it ever even happens.
Yet, what happens when
you do not know what will
occur next?
I will never forget the utter
disappointment when I was
younger. I was in the'middle
to end of a great book series
that my brother was reading
along with me. (You have to
understand, we are about a
year apart). So, we were dis-
cussing the chapters as we
went along, one by one
unraveling the details and
what was occurring in our
own imagination.
However, much to my
utter dismay, he read the end
of the book and proceeded to
chat with me about it. Even
though it was all in sibling
love, I realized something
then.
There is excitement hang-
ing upon not knowing what
will occur next.
I knew the day was com-
ing, but I guess you can say
it has sunk in now. Life is
changing and a chapter of
my life is about to be over
with.
Or should I say chapters.
If you know me, it is not sur-
prising that I am doing all of

SArticle takes reader
back in time
Editor:
The article on the purchase
of the Nan-ces-o-wee Hotel
was very interesting and it
brought back many memories
of the past. The glass brick
that appeared in one of the
S- pictures was the front of
Fisher's Coffee Shop that my
father, Fisher Sauls, opened
S-- in 1939 or 1940. It is intrigu-
. ing to note that the Sebring
S Cafe was where the park-is
now on Ridgewood Drive
next to the hotel. This was an
arcade building with much
history.
Fisher Sauls and Ramond
Canto were the co-owners of
the Sebring Cafe. After many
-years, the partnership dis-
solved on a friendly basis
and Dad opened Fisher's
-Coffee Shop, a few doors
down next to the entrance of
S the hotel. At that time King's
Hardware Store was in this
location and moved next door
so that Dad's coffee shop
could be next door to the
lobby of the hotel. It was a
first-class cafe for the times
and remained such during
World War II. Dad sold this
restaurant when he returned
from serving in the war and
e then put all his efforts into
Fisher's Restaurant, which he
opened just prior to being
drafted into the U.S. Army.
0 not Like most restaurants, cafes
0o IotL of that time had hours from 6
a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a
chapter week, with no holidays or
vacations. Some folks will
remember both of these fine
restaurants or at least
Fisher's Restaurant on the
Circle in downtown Sebring.
Good memories!
Another point that took me
back in time was the fact that
the printed name, Nan-ces-o-
wee, appeared on the north
corner of the hotel, at the
hy's very top facing north; also,
there was a mural of Princess

the major life decisions in
about a three-week span.
Graduate from college, get
married, move, and start a
brand new career. In the past,
I have known what was
going to occur next.
Graduate from high school,
then go to college.
Yet, now I know these
things are happening, but in
the form I just do not know.
That is where the excite-
ment of anticipation drops in.
Everything will be so incred-
ibly brand new for me.
The school factor will be
finished with. I will become
a married woman. Then I
leave a home that I was
raised in since birth.
I know the title of the next
chapter, but I just do not
know what adjectives and
verbs will be placed into its
pages.
After all, it is said that
change is the spice of life.

Nan-ces-o-wee. I'm sure that
it is long gone and again, his-
tory has taken its toll. But ...
more pleasant memories!
Like so many old commu-
nities in our great state, his-
tory is disappearing because
perhaps there is a lack of
interest, or maybe the old
timers who remembered.our
colorful past, have died and
neglected to write, anything
down on paper for the future
generation to read or explore.
Not so many years ago, my
good friend, Bucky Kahn and
I drove down the Avenue of
History: Ridgewood Drive.
We started on the north end
where the caution light is
located and then drove to the
south end where Ridgewood
and Lakeview Drive meet.
We would ask one another:
who and what was there?
This, too, brought back mem-
ories and what fun it was to
live in the past once again for
only a few moments.
Now we all know history
is a record of the past, but it
should be noted that our local
historical society has so
much to offer about our
town. You are always wel-
come to visit and browse into
the past. By the way, Lake
Placid and Avon Park also
have historical societies and
offer history not only to
those interested in the early
days of each city, but also


information about the area
and Highlands County in
general.
The pioneers of yesterday
are gone, but they left a his-
tory of this great county that
will live forever. Thanks to
them, this is a better place to
live because of their vision
and hard work. Collectively
these citizens pulled together
and cared for one another. I
wonder what someone will
write 50 years from now
about our history of changes?
What will be remembered?

A milestone day for television had its ups and downs


Monday was an enormous
day in television history.
After all, it's not every day
that my favorite TV show of
all time undergoes a com-
plete transformation.
In case you haven't heard,
Monday was the premiere of
the new "Price is Right"
hosted by Drew Carey. It
marked the first daytime
Price is Right of my entire
25-year existence in which
the great Bob Barker was not
holding the famous long
microphone and announcing
the "actual retail price" of a
hammock, dinette set or some
other useless prize.
So considering the impor-
tance of this TV milestone, I
had to watch the first Drew
Carey-hosted episode and
form immediate and overly
judgmental conclusions about
the state of the show. It's
what I do.
So here goes:
THE GOOD: The best
thing I can say about Drew's
debut is that he didn't try to
be Bob Barker. This is a good


thing; after all,
Drew is quite funny
and likable and the
studio audience
seemed to acknowl-
edge that with its
rousing standing
ovation during his
entrance.
Of course, the
Price is Right audi-
ence would cheer
wildly for a card-
board cutout if it


Talki
Televi
Matt Mi


was brought on-stage, as long
as they had a chance to win a
car. But still, they seemed to
like Drew a lot.
Drew also seemed to have
a decent sense of pacing dur-
ing the games. He gently
chided the contestants who
took agonizing amounts of
time to make decisions (as
opposed to Bob, who would
pretty much yell at them).
And he seemed to genuinely
enjoy their success. It's
always nice to see that the
host cares.
THE BAD: Although the
producers have tweaked the


music, the set, and
the logo of the show,
they haven't
tweaked the pricing
games. For some
reason the ones
played on Drew's
S debut show were the
S most boring ones in
ing the Price is Right
repertoire no
Sion Plinko, no
murphy Temptation, no
Golden Road, and
no Hole in One Or Two.
And at the risk of sounding
like a conspiracy theorist, I
have a lingering suspicion
that Monday's show was not
the first one taped with Drew
Carey as host.
Why? Well, for starters it
was a perfect show (in other
words, a show where every
contestant won). There have
only been 77 perfect shows
in the Price is Right history,
and seriously, what are the
odds of this happening during
Drew's debut?
Second, there was no men-
tion whatsoever of the fact


that there was a new host. If
this was your first time
watching the show, you'd
have thought Drew Carey had
been hosting for years.
That small quibble
notwithstanding, I thoroughly
enjoyed Drew Carey's debut.
He's no Bob Barker, but he
doesn't have to be.
Drew was funny when the
situation called for it, but he
also managed to stay out of
the spotlight when necessary.
After all, the host .is not the
centerpiece of the show the
games and the nutty contest-
ants are.
And as long as they keep
telling crazy audience mem-
bers to "come on down" and
as long as we're being urged
to help control the pet popu-
lation at the end, then every-
thing will be OK.
It may be a new era, but
the game remains the same.

Scribble


Scrabble

I admit guilt. I have
become a bonafide, certified,
petrified nerd. Here I share
my secret. I am an online
Scrabble geek. I hang my
head in shame. Did you
know you could also spell,
mash, sham, ham, hams,
mesh, hem, hems, has, he,
eh, me, ha, sha and she, all
from the word shame?
See this is the plague I
have brought upon myself.
No longer can I just zone out
when boring people are talk-
ing to me. Nope, now I have
to figure out how many
words I can make out of
Pyramid and Scheme. Amid,
mid, ray, pray, paid, dram,
dam, pay, pad, yam, ya, rap,
ram, rapid, rid, rip, rim, raid,
a, am, aid, ay, air, airy, arid,
arm, mi, ma, maid, map,
may, mad, mar, I, id, dap,
day, drip, pram, prim, pry
and that's all I got. I will
save scheme for another day.
This is my life now! I
mean I used to think it was
weird that while my mom
talked on the phone she
wrote down all the words
she could make out of some-
thing like superficial. I won't
even do it for you now,
because first off she is still
better than me and would
call me telling me all, the'-A
ones I missed. Second, she
would take up whole pages
with a word like superficial,
especially because it has an
S in it. S's are dangerous
things.
God forbid I ever tried to
talk to her while she was on
the phone scribbling down
words. Oh she could make
lists for hours while on the
phone. But don't you dare
interrupt to ask a question!
"Mom where can I find
bandages? Dad chopped off
his index finger in the
mower."
"Not while I'm on the
phone! Write it on a sticky
note!"
"But mom you could have
answered my question in the
time it took you to tell me
you couldn't," I would reply
thinking logic and reason
had to prevail.
"Not while I am on the
phone!" she would say, giv-
ing me one of those you-can-
cook-your-own-supper looks.

DANIEL
Continued from 10A
Apparently logic and reason
don't exist in Phoneland. And to
think, women are always talking
about how amazing they are at
multitasking. What lies!
But back to the original point,
at least I think it was the origi-
nal point, that I used to think
those word games my mom did
were stupid, now I am doing
them! It is frightening.
More and more I find myself
becoming my parents. I spent so
much of my teenage years
declaring all the things about my
parents that I never wanted to


have in me. I hated going to my
dad's home church and having
everyone call me John, his
name, and say I was just like
him. I was dedicated to making
my own path in life and making
sure it very rarely followed my
parents.
Now though, I am doing word
games while I talk to boring
people; I have to admit I look
like my dad, and often even act
like him. I am listening more
and more to all his music and
both my mom and dad seem ...
oh it hurts to say ... I don't know
if I can do it ... oh, what the hey,
they seem ... wiser than I
thought. Wow, that hurt.


Now don't get me wrong, they
still do some crazy things that I
am not going to do! I can't think
of any right off hand, but I know
there are some!
Now the real frightening thing
is I think my dad is becoming
more and more like my grandpa,
which means ....no, no, I just
can't go there quite yet.
Growing up is creepy!
Creep, crepe, prey, cry, reep,
re, rep, rye, rec, er, eye, pe,
peer, pry, ye.
OK, I am done.

Daniel Bedell is an Avon Park
native currently in exile in Michigan
attending college.

Dr. Ashby earns advanced certification from ASCP


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Dr. Martin Ashby, who
has a psychiatric practice at 2561 U.S. 27
South, has just earned an advanced certi-
fication from the American Society of
Clinical Psycho-Pharmacology.
Ashby is one of 800 physicians nation-
wide who have earned the certification,
which focuses in depth on the prescrib-
ing and monitoring of medications for
mental illness or personality disorders
and the drugs' complexities, interactions,
and side effects.
Ashby had to be board certified in
order to qualify to take the exam. He
studied for months, then flew to San
Diego to sit for the five-hour test.
The point, Ashby said, is to keep up
with the cutting edge of psycho-pharma-
cy.
As recently as 1955, he said, thorazine
was the only psychopharmacological
drug available. Originally developed as
an antihistamine, the discovery of its
usefulness in fighting anxiety was a
lucky accident.


Now, Ashby said, the number of drugs
has exploded exponentially. There are all
kinds of choices, and many different
classes, all of which metabolize and act
differently.
All of this, Ashby, said, meant that to
stay up to date in a quickly evolving
field," with so many
p changes every year, he
needed to go back to
school.
He sees even greater
advances in the future.
In the last 52 years stun-
ning breakthroughs in
Ashby knowledge have
occurred, he said. The
pharmaceutical industry has so much
more awareness that it' is able to cus-
tomize many new drugs. And Ashby
added, there will still be many other
serendipitous accidents where unintend-
ed side effects from a drug invented to do
one thing, will prove to be surprising
beneficial in other applications.
Depression continues to be the number
one complaint plaguing patients, he said.


Worldwide, one in 20 people are seri
ly depressed.
Ashby is concerned that Highli
County lacks a Crisis Stabilization I
and that emergency cases have tc
driven to Bartow by local law enfo
ment.
"We have virtually no (psychia
beds," he said, "except for a s.
dementia unit down in Lake Placid
people 55 and older. And transport
Baker-Acted individuals to Peace R
takes the police off the road for far
long at a time."
Ashby shares his office with Jo
Rackanskis-Anderson, an adult psy
atric and mental health nurse practil
er. Anderson has also been studying.
became board certified in January.
Anderson arrived in Highlands Co
in 2000 from Tampa working for Pr
Health Services as a nurse practition,
was while she was working for the c
pany, first at the Frostproof Jail and
here, that she met Ashby. In time,
her job was eliminated, she joined A!
in his office.

Age-related macular degeneration

is a leading cause of blindness


Age-related macu-
lar degeneration
(ARMD) ranks sec-
ond behind diabetic
retinopathy as the
leading cause of
blindness in patients
ages 45-64 years old.
Almost 30 percent of
those older than 75 FO
years have some type
of ARMD. It is the Pc
leading cause of Dr.
blindness in patients MD
older than 65 in the
United States, Canada,
England, Australia, and
Scotland.
Several risk factors have
been presented for ARMD,
including cardiovascular dis-
ease, cigarette smoking,
heredity, hypertension, light-
colored eyes, sun exposure,
and gender (females seem to
be more affected than males).
Regardless, aging is the dom-
inant variable linked to the
development of ARMD.
There are two types of
ARMD: the dry form and the
wet form. Both seem to
always occur in patients
older than 50.
The dry form of ARIMD is
characterized by distorted
vision and gradual loss of
central vision; however, it
may show no symptoms at all
initially. Upon physical
Sexam, the eye doctor may
note degenerative changes in
the macular tissue such as,
hyaline deposits in the retina
(macular drusen), clumps of
pigment, and atrophy of reti-
Snal tissue. The doctor will
check your central vision by
.having you look at a grid to
determine if you have any
distortion, or blank spots in
your central field. They will
also examine the back of the
eye using various lenses to
check for any evidence of
blood or leakage.
S 'No proven treatment is
t available at this time; howev-
er, the use of oral nutritional
Supplements including
antioxidants (vitamins A, C,
Sand E) is proving to be bene-
ficial. Trace minerals such as
selenium and zinc also seem
to be helpful.. Some patients
will benefit from low-vision
aids, especially if they suffer
from central vision loss in
both eyes.
Patients suffering from the
wet form of ARMD will
complain of a blind spot in


L--=
cal
)int
Valerie
ulds


their central visual
field or distortion of
straight lines or
edges with a rapid
onset of vision loss.
Macular drusen may
be observed by the
eye doctor, as well
as new blood vessel
growth (neovascular
membranes) beneath
the retina. These
new blood vessels
tend to be very
leaky leading to


hemorrhages within the mac-
ula.
In addition to the examina-
tion techniques mentioned
above, the doctor may need
to perform a flourescein
angiogram to determine the
exact location of the new
blood vessels and to deter-
mine if any leakage of blood
or fluid is present. This test
consists of injecting a small
amount of dye into a vein in
the patient's arm, and then
taking a series of photo-
graphs of the retina as the
dye travels through the circu-
lation.
In patients who have wet
ARMD in one eye, the risk
of a new blood vessel growth
developing in the other eye is
10-12 percent per year. Eyes
with multiple soft drusen are
more at risk.
Treatment for the' wet form
of ARMD may consist of
laser treatment or new med-
ications (Avastin, Lucentis)
that have proven valuable in
treating new blood vessel
growth. Your retinal special-
ist can tell you if you may be
a candidate for one of these
newer medications.
In summary, the best way
to curtail your risk of devel-
oping ARMD, or at least
slowing it down is to do the
following: Take a good mul-
tivitamin every day, don't
smoke,'protect your eyes
from the sun, and, if you can,
try to eat at least four serv-
ings of dark green leafy veg-
etables (spinach, kale, broc-
coli, etc.) every week.

Valerie Moulds is a board certi-
fied optometric physician practic-
ing in Sebring and is Arizona
and Florida certified in diagnos-
tics and therapeutics. She is a
member of the American
Optometric Association, Arizona
Optometric Association and

University of Florida on a
R.O.C.K. Scholarship that
pays for tuition and books,
There were 172 scholar-
ships given this year. The
Florida Woman's Clubs gave
$70,000. last year towards
the scholarships.
Yates discussed the Relay

Placid March 7 and 8. Funds

Orlando, and for research.
They rely only on donations
to fund the lodges.
The November member-

cuss and plan when the
Queens in Abundance gathers

Sebring for lunch on
Monday, Nov. 12.
"If I should die before I
wake ... I hope I have done
this:" A survey will be pre-
sented as submitted by red
hatters in attendance, listing

to go, things to do that they,
may just not have done thus
far.
These events can be for
their individual chapters, the
Queens in Abundance or as a
multichapter event.

Conference Center. Tickets

present the entertainment.

Sebring Optimist Club
SEBRING The
Highlands County Board of
Commissioners passed its
annual Unsung Heroes
Proclamation, honoring the
thousands of volunteers who
serve their communities. This
invaluable contribution to the
community and to those in
need saves the local and state
governments billions. Some
40 to 50 organizations have
volunteers who perform thou-
sands of hours on behalf of
their fellow citizens. It is
only proper that they be rec-
ognized once a year.
The Optimists are especial-
ly proud of those who help
the youth of Highlands
County. One of those clubs,
Boys & Girls Club of
Sebring and Avon Park, is
establishing a new site near
Memorial Park. The city of
Avon Park and Highlands
County School Board have
provided valuable assistance
by providing land and utili-
ties, plus portables; however,
there are more than $20,000
in other facilities and renova-
tions required before the pro-
grams can be opened for the
kids. The Oct. 1 date has
been pushed up to Nov. 1.
The B&G Club has
received $10,000 for a
matching fund to cover the
noted expenses. The public is
urged to contribute $5, $10,
$15, $20, $25 up to $100 to
match that $10,000 fund. The
club has received a little
more than $2,000 thus far.
Send your contribution to
Woodraun Wright, director,
Boys & Girls Club, P.O. Box

her 3;2 pound loss; she also
received a dollar for keeping
last week's weight off.
Another dollar went to Helen
Harrington. Maureen
Raymond won the pound
package this week. Tina
Murray unwrapped the incen-
tive gift box and received a
book on weight loss by Dr.

The business meeting was
conducted, some announce-
ments were given and then
the program entitled
"Helping Hands" was pre-
sented by Janet Allwood. The
theme of the entire program
centered on her first question
to us "What have you done
lately to help someone else?"
The program focused on how
we can be support for
friends, acquaintances and
TOPS members who need
encouragement. She passed
out green, orange and red
cutout hands to those who
had lost, turtled or gained
during the past week and told
us to put them where we
could see them daily as an
incentive to try harder and do
a little better this week.
Members were all urged to
try harder to reach out to oth-
ers who may need encourage-
ment.

Lady Dragons bounce back,



sweep Sebring in finale ri& irl
A Oawek raseletal


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.comn
LAKE PLACID The
thing about a rivalry is, you
can throw out the records
and expect just about any-
thing.
Such was the case
Tuesday night, and Monday
for that matter, as the Lady
Dragons rebounded from
Monday's loss at Avon Park
with a three-game sweep of
Sebring.
"I was starting to think I
was the dumbest person in
the world," Lake Placid
head coach Marilyn Jones
said. "Scheduling Sebring
for the last game of the sea-
son."
But it turned out to be a
blessing in disguise as on
senior night, the girls were
pumped up to finish the reg-
ular season strong and atone
for the night before.
, But while the match only
took three games, Sebring
sure didn't make it easy.
The Lady Dragons
jumped out to a fast start,
taking a 4-1 and then a 6-2
lead in the opening game.
, But the Lady Streaks
struck back, tying the game
at 11 after a string of serves
from Sammi Lower.
Things stayed knotted
over the next few points
before Lake Placid inched
put again to a four-point
lead at i9-15.
But as sopn as. the_
momentum looked switched
to the green side of the
court, here came Sebring
back, scoring the next'three
points to make it a one-
point game.
And just when you
thought it might be a nail-
biter to the end, there went
the Dragons on a six-point
run to close it out, 25-18.
SThe second game played
'out much as the first,
although Lake Placid could-
n't establish any sort of lead

Sebring Tuesday night.


as it see-sawed back and
forth. '
Tied at 14, a five-point
run highlighted by a Kristen
Massung block, stretched
things out a bit.
But the Streaks made a
late push, getting as close
as 21-18 on a Hannah
Shoop kill.
The points would then be
traded, however, and with
Lake Placid so close to the
final one, it.was just a mat-
ter of time before they hit
the magic number in the 25-


20 win.
The third,. .and final
game, saw another series Of
Lady Dragon leads grow
and then get cut to size.
Blocks of Shoop kill
attempts by Massung and
Tiffany Bisby got things
going and Lake Placid got
out to a 6-2 lead.
Sebring closed to 11-8,
but the Dragons again
pushed it to 15-9.

Avon Park surprises Lady Dragons

By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent


AVON PARK The Lady
Red Devils pulled of a bit of
an upset Monday night as
they topped their county rival
Lake Placid Green Dragons
in a three-game, though
closely-contested, sweep, 25-
19, 26-24, 25-23 in Avon
Park.
Missy Lander led Avon
Park in kills with five, and
Deija Barrett and Kelly Bass
followed closely with 3 kills
each.
"The girls worked well
together tonight. Both Deija
(Barrett) and Kelly (Bass)
had excellent serves, and had
several aces each," said Avon
Park coach Christie Hipps.
"They communicated well,
and kept calling out to each
other and were in the right
place at the right time. They
wanted to win tonight."
The first set went all Avon
Park's way as the Devils took
the lead early on and just kept
going.
Lake Placid had a short
rally when the score reached
20-15, but could not catch up
and the set ended up 25-19
Avon Park.
The second set could have
gone either way, and was def-
initely more of a challenge
for the Lady Devils.
The Dragons refused to go
quietly, and the lead went
back and forth for much of

SEBRING The Lady Blue
Streaks of the links made the
most of their home-course
advantage Monday in winning
the Class 2A, District 9 cham-
pionship.
Playing at the Sebring
Municipal Golf Club, the
Streaks total of 359 topped a
field of 11 teams and stayed
13 strokes ahead of thier near-
est competitor, George
Jenkins.
Played on a sunny and
clear, but quite windy day, it
was a battle for everyone.
"It wasn't pretty, but we got
it done," Sebring head coach
and club pro Tom McClurg
said. "The conditions were
really tough out there to play
in."
Heather Brownell led the
charge for the Lady Streaks,
firing an 81, especially
impressive for the conditions,
and right in line with her con-
sistent play of late.
"I have been real consistent


lately," Brownell said. "It's
been 81, 83, 82, all right
around there. I'm glad I was
able to keep it there and help
us win this in my senior year."
Also adding to the winning
team score were Kayla Dunn,
89, and Julianne Lind, 92,
both of whom turned around
disappointing front-nines to
finish up strong.
Both girls tallied 48s for
the first nine holes but got
locked in with a 41, Dunn,
and 44, Lind, to aid in the
tournament lead.
Priscilla Adams chipped in
with a 97 for the final Sebring
total while just five shots
behind her, Camiel White's
102 wasn't quite enough to
add to the team score, but
shows the strength, depth and
consistency on the team.
Both Adams' and White's
scores would have been
among the top two on most of
the other teams in the field.
With the win, the Streaks
move onto the regional tour-
nament, along with George


Jenkins and Celebration, also
on their home course Tuesday,
..c t ....
"We got it done, but we
will have to do a lot better at
regionals if we want to get to
state," McClurg said. "We've
gone to state six out of the last
eight years, but last year we
came in third at regionals and
only the top two go to state."
Taking top individual hon-
ors in the tournament was
George Jenkins' M.J. Audette
with a 75 with Celebration's
Lauren Benetti taking second
with a 79 and Anna Hancock
of George Jenkins third with
her 81.
Next was Brownell with
her own 81, Jake Horne of
Bartow with an 83 and
Dunn's 89 earned here sixth
place individually.
The top three individual
scores, not from a qualifying
team, also moved on the the
regional even next week, with
Home and Gretchen Gordin
and Julia Berger from
Lakeland earning the honors.

SPORTS BRIEFS


SFCC Nurses Scholarship Fund
Golf Tournament Nov. 17
AVON PARK The fifth annual golf
benefit for the Nurses Scholarship Fund
at SFCC will be a best ball shotgun start
at 8 a.m. on Saturday Nov. 17 at the
Turtle Run golf course at Sun 'N Lakes
Golf Club.
As usual, serious, somber golfers
striving for the perfect shot or lowest
winning score may not wish to partici-
pate since flights or handicaps will not
be utilized.
In fact it's possible that the normal
low score reporting system may even be
ignored when awarding prizes.
However, for those who enjoy laugh-
ing with their friends on and off the
course, this promises to be a great day.
Participants can establish their own four-
some prior to registering or individual
participants will be assigned partners.
The event is open to the public. Entry
fee is $40 per person and includes coffee
and donuts, liquid refreshments on the
course before and during play plus a
spaghetti extravaganza served after golf
at the American Legion Post 69.
Last year $6,500 was raised to
increase to approximately $20,000 the
Nurses Scholarship Endowment Fund
maintained at SFCC for Highlands
County nurses.
In addition, since inception, six local
nursing students have also benefited
from direct financial aid. Last year four
direct scholarships were awarded in total
including three $1,000 direct scholar-
ships to students at SFCC.
Donations are welcome from those
unable to enjoy the golf festivities.
Suggestions are,$200 for Tournament
Sponsors, $50 for Corporate Hole
Sponsors, and $25 for Personal Hole
Sponsors. Merchandise Gift Certificates
are also welcome and become valuable
door prizes. WAL-MART has again
contributed a $1,000 donation to become
the Grand Tournament Sponsor. The
event is sponsored by the Forty& Eight
Unit of Avon Parks American Legion
Post 69 which i4 hosting the event.
Registrations can be arranged at Post 69,
1301 W Bell Street, Avon Park (453-
4553) or by calling Bob Burke (452-

DEVILS
Continued from 1D
set.
A Lake Placid rally near
the end of the set kept Red
Devils from running away
with it, but stretched the
score out to 26-24 Avon Park.
The final set was contested
as well.
The Dragon spikers gave
up very little at the net,
returning several of the Avon
Park kill attempts, but could
not hold the Devils off and
the set finished out 25-23
Avon Park.
The Red Devils play again
on Tuesday night in the dis-
trict match up in Sebring.

PLACID
Continued from 1D
served the Streaks to within
15-13 before Lake Placid
went on a 10-3 run to close
out the game and the match.
"Playing Lake Placid is like
playing against a wall, every
time you hit it, it's going to
come back," Sebring head


coach Vanessa Sinness said.
"We're still off a bit, but get-
ting there. Our main setter
Ashley Waldon is just get-
ting back and she did well
for her second game since her
injury. But it's the focus and
leadership that isn't quite
there yet. As a team we're
going to need to come out
focused and ready to play, or
else we won't last long in dis-
ricts."


The Lady Streaks will be
hosting their district tourna-
ment which begins. Monday
night.
For the Lady Dragons, it
was a great way to end their
regular season as they host
their own district tournament
starting Tuesday.
"The seniors really stepped
it up tonight," Jones said.
"Kristen (Massung), Brittney
Baldwin, Tara Weeks and


Darby Underwood all really
did a great job, both on the
court and with their leader-
ship."
"The team had something
to prove to themselves after
last night," she continued. "I
couldn't be prouder of the
way they played. And now if
we can stay focused like this,.
we could do real well from
here on in."

Left, Sebring had its' moments in Tuesday nights loss at
Lake Placid, such as this high-flying kill from Rachel Ashley.
It was the play and leadership, of seniors such as Tara
Weeks,.left, and Darby Underwood, #9, that coach Marilyn
Jones credited with the season-ending win over Sebring.

By JOHN BEDELL
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID The
Sebring boys and girls cross
country teams swept the
four-team meet hosted by
Lake Placid Tuesday after-
noon, but the competition is
gaining ground.
The Sebring boys squeaked

points 34-36 while the Lady
Streaks edged the Lady
Dragons 35-38.
The Green Dragon boys
were third with 65 and Walker
Memorial was fourth with 98.
Walker Memorial was third

Lake Placid coach Dennis
Berard was pleased with his
girls' effort.

have six underclassmen run-

"Thalia Espinoza has

has been a definite plus for
us."
Resendiz was pleased to
pick up the individual win
today.
"I tried to pull away from
her (Ewing) right at the
beginning," she said. "That
has been my goal to beat her."
