Schools on lookout for potentially deadly staph infections


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Highlands County
School Board officials are trying to
determine whether any local athletes
or other students may have been
infected with Methicillin-Resistant
Staphyloccus Aureus, known more
commonly as MRSA.
A total of six Hardee County High
School football players were diag-


Six Hardee High School football players hit with staph

infections, but no cases of drug-resistant bug reported


nosed with staph infections -
although not necessarily MRSA -
in the past few weeks, head coach
Tim Price said Thursday. One of
them, a junior varsity player, was
hospitalized with a life-threatening


reaction to the antibiotic he was
given to treat the staph infection, not
from the infection itself.
Price said he thinks a player
brought'the infection from home and
introduced it into the football pro-


gram, and that all the players have
responded well to treatment.
''Everybody is recovering from
it," he said, but "we've had to take
big-time measures to combat it."
Those measures include cleaning


every player when they come in
from practice and also disinfecting
every piece of equipment from
uniforms to pads that comes in
contact with a player's skin. The
coaches are also making sure no
players have exposed sores when
they take the field.

City to get


free energy


reduction

City will share cost
savings with company
doing the retrofitting
By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun .com
SEBRING The City of
Sebring is partnering with a
private company to improve
energy efficiency in its gov-
ernment buildings. What's
more, they're doing it for
free.
Under a new agreement
passed by the city council at
Tuesday's meeting, Energy
Savings Company (ESS) will
retrofit five city buildings in
an attempt to reduce energy
costs.
But instead of asking for
payment up-front, ESS will
collect 75 percent of whatev-
er savings are accrued. The
other 25 percent will go into
,.... .the. city's pocket, and if no
w savings are earned, then no
money is owed.
"The objective is to help
the city lower its operating
expenses, specifically energy
dollars, while also updating
facilities with technology -
Sbut without spending
\ money," ESS representative
Ewald Probst told Council
Tuesday.
Under the contract, ESS
will retrofit five city build-
ings: City Hall, the public
work building, the civic cen-
ter, wastewater collection and
the utilities building.
ESS will utilize several
different methods of curbing
energy costs in the buildings,
which are currently equipped
with "1940's technology,"
Probst said. The work will
include installing new light-
ing with occupancy sensors,
placing tinting and weather
stripping on windows,
installing new programmable
thermostats, and reworking

Sebring High School Resource Officer. Brian Giguere of 'b. Highlands County Sheriff's Office keeps a watchful eye on
his school. In the event of a crisis situation, he will be aided by the HCSO's new Critical Incident Response Plan.


Sheriff's Office has crisis plan in place


for all of Highlands' public schools

SEBRING School shootings,
natural disasters, train derailments
and escaped prisoners.
Just a few unthinkable events that
can change the face of Highlands
Count( Schools forever.
"When -onmcihing like thjt utart-.to
happen, gathering information would
slow us down," Highlands County
Sheriffs Office Lt. Tim Lethbridge
said.
That's why the HCSO has what
they call a Critical Incident Response
Plan for each public school.
"I won't go into detail because of
security, but we do have a plan in
place available to every deputy in
their car that identifies all of the
strategic layouts in the event we have
an emergency in a school," Sheriff


Susan Benton said. "Officers can pull
up facility maps (on their in-car lap-
tops) and know if we get dispatched
(to) ... for example, an incident in
hall B of Avon Park High School, we
know where that is."
There are also pre-
.. designated sites for
Parent pickup, media
and law enforcement
personnel at each
school.
d "This will be a liv-
Benton ing, breathing docu-
ment that will be in
constant flux," HCSO Sgt. Monica
Sauls said. "As population and
schools grow, all information will be
updated staff at the school, where
new buildings or portables are, and
changes in school resource officers."
Coming on the heels of one school


shooting and another attempted one
was the recent communication
between an APHS student and his
resource officer.
The student told his SRO, Avon
Park police officer James Parker,
about a suspected body he saw in the
city.
It turned out to be nothing more
than some animal remains, but can
illustrate how important SROs are to
area students and the community.
They are the last line of defense
against violence at area schools.
Resource officers were exposed to
the idea of a CIRP during training
and proposed the idea to Benton.
"The sheriff has made this a priori-
ty. She has been interested in the
progress and seeing it deployed as

had an extra $881,000 burn-

During a -presentation to
the county commissioners
Tuesday, he attributed the
excess fees to growth, proper-
ty values, efficiency and a
"pleasant work environ-
ment."
"That's tremendous,"
Bryan said of the fees collect-

offices, whose budgets are
funded via ad valorem taxes,

On Tuesday, Bryan
announced he was returning
$837,000 to the county and
$43,000 to other governmen-

"There's no way for us to
give it back (directly to tax-

during a phone interview

'God gave us a vision to start a school'

Ugandan pastor seeks help educating orphans in war-torn country


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Pastor Bethuel Dongo
said he can educate a child for $30 a
month.
He and his wife Florence made it
their mission to reach as many of the
two million Ugandan orphans as possi-
ble.
Perhaps, God called them to service.
"God gave us a vision to start a
school," Dongo said to 40 members of
the "Keenagers" senior group during a
luncheon Thursday at First Baptist
Church of Sebring. "If this is his vision,
He will provide for this, vision."


During his brief appeal for sponsors
for 200 children, Dongo described him-
self as a family man.
He had 54 siblings. Though he had
one mother, his father had eight wives.
"I'm a married man to one wife," he
boasted, stressing the singular spouse.
Together, the couple "had three sons
and a daughter, though their family
swelled to 16 children.
"It's a great blessing for us," Dongo
said, explaining they accepted several
orphans as their own.
With the black, red and yellow
Ugandan flag as a backdrop, Dongo
thanked the Keenagers for honoring his


country, and thanked them for their help
following his 2005 visit to Sebring.
The God Cares School opened in
2002 with 97 students who initially
attended class in a church basement.
Now the school boasts an enrollment of
700.
Dongo blamed AIDS and 40 years of
civil war for a the combined problems
of parentless children and a money-less
government.
"All the money was wasted in buying
weapons and killing each other," he
said.

Tina Smothers (above) advanced to the next round of
Heartland Idol Thursday night, but Jimmy Shell's quest for
the title came to an end as the field was cut to the final 12.



Heartland Idol



field down to 12


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.cont
SEBRING A theme
Emcee Don Elwell couldn't
keep himself from hosting -
Madonna or Elton John -
brought more than a few off-
the-cuff comments from both
Elwell and a few judges.
Still, the latest semifinal
edition of the Heartland Idol
competition proved to be
more than just another round
of good, nearly clean fun. It
was entertainment.
The 16 entrants were whit-
tled down to 12, with good
overall performances given
by each contestant.
Annie Sederback led the
performing part of the contest
with a well-dressed and well-
choreographed rendition of
John's "Philadelphia
Freedom."
Madonna's "Like a Virgin"
Wiuj a crowd favorite,
performed by Amy Roposa.
She was a little nervous on
stage with a short pink skirt
and see-through white top,
but her 'vocals somehow
pleased the ears as much as,
the 22-year-old pleased the
eyes.
The strong middle of the
competition was anchored by
Shannon Marrero, Shawn
Knowles and Jessica Herrera.
Marrero brought
Madonna's "Papa Don't
Preach" back to life after it
was killed in a remake by
Kelly Osborne, much to the
crowd's appreciation.
Knowles advanced by
burning out his fuse up on
stage alone, taking John's
"Rocket Man" to Mars and
back.
Madonna's "Borderline"
was Herrera's song of choice,
and, she did more with the
well-chosen song than most
of the other contestants.
Those who stayed well
after 8 p.m. were in for a
choreographic and vocal treat,
as people's choice winner
Leslie Bass took Madonna's

"Vogue" to the level it was
originally performed.
"All you need is your own
imagination," she sang, and
all the crowd needed was a
little imagination to spot
Madonna on-stage and not
Bass.
Her performance was the
best overall of their night,
drawing applause at different
moments throughout 'the
entire night, with many a
judge complimenting her on
her choreography.
She was followed by
Christopher Allen, and while
Bass was a tough act to fol-
low, Allen is a former Teen
Idol winner and was said to
have a chance to take heme
another title after his perform-
ance.
Allen sang John's "Can You
Feel the Love Tonight," and
as that question leapt.from his
mouth the first time the
crowed responded with an
emphatic "yes" through
applause louder than most
others during their entire time
on stage.
Another Thursday night
party-on-the-Circle was
wrapped up by dental assis-
tant and mother of three
teenage girls Carrie Adkins,
dressing, performing and
singing Madonna's "Material
Girl."
She was admittedly winded

and show us what to do,"
Price said.
Price said staph infections
are "getting to be a real big
deal" in the world of high
school football.
"Probably 50 percent of the
teams we've talked to either
have it or have had it."
The Avon Park and Sebring
high school football teams
have played the Wildcats this
year and both parents and
administrators are now trying
to determine if there may
have been any transmission of
the infection.
Highlands County School
officials said they had not
been made aware of any
MRSA infections in the local
football squads..
"I've talked with the high
schools and they.said they'd
had several kids with different
kinds of infections but as far
as anybody who's been
specifically diagnosed with
MRSA, I haven't had that
information given to me,"
said Deputy Superintendent
of Schools Rodney Hollinger.
He further reported coaches
already used protocols
designed to cut down on such
disease transmission.
"For instance, the wrestling
coaches bleach the mats
because of a number of differ-
ent kinds of skin conditions
some of the kids might have,"
he said.
In the meantime, Hollinger
said an informational e-mail
had been sent out to all school
board personnel about the
MRSA infection, the concerns
about it and steps that would
be taken in the schools.
Both Hardee County Health
Department Medical Director
Dr. Stephen L. Gordon
Gordon and Highlands
County Health Department
Director Paula Thaqi said the
disease is fairly common, and
therefore not a reportable one,
so their offices generally
would not be made aware of
the presence of MRSA in the
schools.
MRSA made headlines ear-
lier this week when Staunton

dent Ashton Bonds died after
being diagnosed with the dis-
ease. Classes in the district

schools undergoing a strin-
gent cleansing.
"Obviously that is the
worst-case scenario. But it
does serve to illustrate that in
the right setting this can
potentially be a life-threaten-
ing infection," Gordon said.
In Associated Press reports,
health and education officials
contended staph infections,
including the serious MRSA
strain, have been spreading


through schools nationwide in
recent weeks.
According to Thaqi, staph
infections, including MRSA,
occur most frequently among
persons in hospitals and
healthcare facilities such as
nursing homes to people with
weakened immune systems.
They most commonly include
such things as infections of
surgical wounds, the urinary
tract or bloodstream.
Thaqi said a strain of staph
subsequently emerged in hos-
pitals that was resistant to the
broad-spectrum antibiotics
commonly used to treat it.


The MRSA emerged as one of
the first germs to outwit all
but the most powerful drugs
including methicillin, peni-
cillin and amoxicillin.
Health department officials
say factors that have been
associated with the spread of
MRSA skin infections include
close skin-to-skin contact,
openings in the skin such as
cuts or abrasions, contaminat-
ed items and surfaces, crowd-
ed living conditions. and poor
hygiene.
"There really are two kinds
of MRSA. It occurs frequent-
ly in people who are in hospi-


tals, nursing homes and health
care facilities who have weak-
ened immune systems.
"Then, there is the 'com-
munity acquired' MRSA and
that has to do with skin infec-
tions in people who are ath-
letes, military recruits, pris-
oners people who are in
close contact with each other.
So, many cases of community
acquired MRSA are seen in
school-aged students, espe-
cially on sports teams and in
locker rooms," she said.

PLAN
Continued from 1A
quickly as possible;"
Lethbridge said.
"It was in development last
year and it's being deployed
now. This will be the first
year it will be available."
The plan helps with more
than just the unthinkable,
because it adds to the overall
safety of the students it was
designed to protect.
"It certainly helps us out in
a critical incident, but just in
case you have a burglar
alarm or an officer that was
just in need of assistance
with everyday occurrences
from a fight to maybe a dis-
turbance that you wouldn't
call critical," Sauls said, "it
would get officers from out-
side of the school to a specif-
ic location easily because
they have the plans."
Officers and SROs were
instrumental in gathering
data and taking photographs
of almost every angle and
area of each school.
School administration
played a vital role in the
development of the plan as
well.
"They helped in getting us
information in regards to stu-
dent population, staff and
location of important sites on
campus," Sauls said. "We are
working closely with the dis-


TAX
Continued from 1A
The commissioners approved two
requests Bryan made for facility
improvements in Lake Placid and Avon
Park new air conditioning and roof,
respectively netting the county about
$807,000 in returned fees.
Highlands County, realizing a $28.1
million increase to its tax-roll f I 2005,
had an adjusted 2006 tax roll of $115.8
million.
The 2007 certified tax roll is $129.4
million and the bills should be in the
mail in time for a Nov. 1 delivery.
"It's a sizable amount of money,"
Bryan said, explaining he's been giving
his annual report for seven years though
'he's not required to do so. "The board
needs to understand where it's coming
from."

Sebring High School Resource Officers Manny Gonzalez (in car) and Brian Giguere are the
first line of defense in keeping students at SHS safe. With the new Critical Incident Response
Plan, their knowledge of the school will be accessible to all deputies responding to any situa-
tion at the school on their in-car laptops.


trict office. They have been
incredibly cooperative and
given us the opportunity to
work together."
While most incidents that
have drawn media attention
have been at high schools
and middle schools, the
HCSO has plans in place for
all public schools in the


county, including the elemen-
tary schools.
"A few years ago we had a
prisoner that escaped from
another county. They were
tracking him west in the
undeveloped areas of U.S. 27
and just north of (State Road)
66 and had been tracked
going near Cracker Trail


He encouraged the public and the com-
missioners to tour his office and-learn
first hand how it operates. Bryan said his
employees do more than sell fishing
licenses and collect taxes.
Of the five commissioners, he said all
but one has stopped by for a walk-
through.
He returned $737,000 last year.
Tim Mechling, budget manager for the
Board of County Commissioners,
explained budget surpluses from Bryan,
the other constitutional officers and the
commission are deposited into the coun-
ty's fund balances, typically the general
fund.
Interest-earning money from the fund
balance offsets expenses of the following
fiscal year, and covers costs associated
with projects and encumbrances brought
forward.
"We're doing the best job we can to be
efficient and save the taxpayers money,"


Elementary," Sauls said.
"The school was in a lock-
down and we already had
people in critical areas, the
different shed areas, roof and
PE. Knowing what that area
looks like is critical in mak-
ing sure students and staff
are safe and our officers are
safe."


Bryan said.
But, he took issue with the Department
of Revenue's sharing of "casual sales
taxes" collected locally through person-
to-person automobile, boat and mobile
home sales.
Of the $1.19 million collected through
Sept. 30 for the state, Bryan's office
earned $1,560 in fees.
All fees collected by Bryan are set by
the state and it's from these fees that he
budgets office.
"That's a big discrepancy," he said,
noting the fee for collecting casual sales
taxes doesn't cover his costs. "It's
extremely difficult to motivate the legis-
lature to increase fees. We just feel like
they should share."
Bryan explained a fee increase would-
n't affect customers because the fee is a
percentage of what is remitted to the
state.


ENERGY
Continued from 1A
air conditioner systems to
make them more energy effi-
cient.
All materials and labor will
be provided by ESS with no
out-of-pocket costs for the
city, Probst said. The 75-25
revenue-sharing agreement
will run for five years, after
which the city will keep 100
percent of the savings.
ESS has already performed
the retrofit for several county
buildings, including the three
library branches, the Agri-
Civic Center and the
Government Center. The
company has also worked
with several private compa-
nies, including Frito-Lay,
.Pepsi, Johnson & Johnson
and others.
The retrofitting of the
county buildings resulted in
almost $65,000 in savings
over a one-year span, Probst
said, and he told the city to
expect around 20 to 30 per-
cent in savings.
However, even if the retro-
fit doesn't save any money,
the city still will not have to
pay anything.
"We put our money where
our mouth is," Probst said.
"Ultimately, the utility com-
pany is the one really paying
for the energy retrofit."
Council member Bud
Whitlock called the retrofit a
"no-brainer,' and the Council
unanimously approved the
ESS contract. Once work
begins, installation will take
between three and four
months, Probst said.


Also at Tuesday's meeting,
council approved a long-
debated ordinance that will
allow non-exclusive franchis-
es for construction waste col-
lection and disposal. The
city's last franchise agree-
ment expired June 30, and
council has been discussing
the franchise issue since then.
The measure was one of
three options presented by
City Attorney Bob Swaine,
and it passed by a narrow 3-2
margin. The other options
were to extend the expired
ordinance (which established
an exclusive franchise), or to
eliminate franchises altogeth-
er.
The latter option was pre-
sented as the result of heavy
lobbying by Councilman
Scott Stanley, who said fran-
chises didn't generate enough
funds to justify their exis-
tence.
"There is no benefit for the
city," Stanley said. "I believe
this will cost the city more
than the revenue generated.
It's not right to support a fran-
chise solely because the city
wants money. Enough is
enough. Do not vote for an
unnecessary tax increase."
Council member Jeff
Carlson, who along with
Stanley voted no on the ordi-
nance, said he agreed with
Stanley's statements.
Under the new ordinance,
any company can apply for a
franchise, assuming they meet
the criteria in the ordinance
-which includes $5,000 in
either cash, letter of credit or
performance bond as well as
proof of insurance.

DAY OF MENTORING


Airport tour flies high with ARC group


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING The Day of
Mentoring was a walk in the
park for several Ridge Area
Arc clients on Wednesday.
The 18 mentorees joined
Sebring Regional Airport's
Leah Graves for a walk-
through of six businesses at
the 1,770-acre industrial park.
Their day started with
breakfast at Hotel Jacaranda in
Avon Park. Some of the men-
torees met up with their men-
tors, spending the day at vari-
ous.businesses throughout the
county and with some govern-
ment officials.
The tour group converged in
a conference at the airport's
administrative building, where
project manager Erik Treudt
brought them up to speed on
the facility's military back-
ground and current operations.
"Not only are we an airport,
we're an industrial park," said
Graves, who took the eager-to-
learn mentorees outside to
watch a few planes land then
to Lockwood Aviation, Float
Planes and Amphibs,
Everglades Foods, E-Stone
USA, and Sebring
International Raceway.
They spared no expense,
replenishing the calories they
walked off traversing E-

lot different from the air," said
Tish Lockwood, wife of Phil
Lockwood, who was commis-
sioned by National
Geographic to build a photog-


rapher-friendly plane for film-
ing the Congo.
She invited the group to
return individually for plane
rides. Some savored the idea,
while others balked. One of

the latter was Sue Talios, who wasn't
afraid to admit her fear of heights.
At Float Planes, they saw where a
variety of weight-shift and light-sport
craft are manufactured and sold. Quality
Assurance manager Kristen Kramer was
requested for photo ops, for which she
happily posed with William Dickson.
Dickson was full of questions for his
.hosts at the different businesses.


Sometimes, he provided the answers.
At the Everglades Seasonings packag-
ing plant, Mac Smith earned his keep by
helping marketing director Leigh Ann
Wynn with a canister's lid.
He beamed with pride from under-
neath his Sun Devils ball cap.
"We make slabs of material that we put
on counters and floors," said Michael W.
Tizler, plant manager at E-Stone.
. After Dickson introduced himself,
Tizler noted that his middle name is
William and Dickson made a new friend.
From one end to the other and back,


the mentorees walked the length of a
football field as they "oohed" and
"ahhed" at the robots and waved to the
workers, who smiled and waved back.
"This is where it all starts," Tizler
said, scooping up glass and letting it fall
back into a container.
E-Stone transforms glass and granite
into countertops and tiles.
"OK, who knows' how to make a
slab?" Tizler asked the Arc clients before
they left. After several hands shot in the
air, he confirmed it, "All right!
Everybody."

Real-time outage maps offered

online at Progress Energy site


Special to the News-Sun
A new self-service tool that
allows customers and media
representatives 'to search for
information about power out-
ag6s is now available on
Progress Energy's external
Web site at www.progress-
energy.com/outagemap.
Progress energy Florida is
the first investor-owned utili-
ty in the state to institute this
progressive tool on a daily
basis.
The Progress Energy out-'
age map tool provides 24-
hour real-time reports on
Power outages including both
planned maintenance outages
and unplanned outages caused
by storms, traffic accidents or
equipment failure. Features of
the tool include: Storm, and
non-storm mode views; map
or table format views; color-
coded icons based on the size
of ,the outage; outages by
county in table format; a "go-
to" feature for outage search-
es by address.
The online maps will pro-
vide outage information down
to city and town detail. They
include information such as
the number of customers
affected, the time the outage
occurred and an estimated
time power will be restored.
To protect customer privacy
and security the outage map
tool does not display outage
views to a specific street
address.
During major outage
events, such as storms, the
map tool will present outages
by county highlighted in yel-
low shades, based on severity.
Outage information is avail-
able and valuable to counties'
Emn urgency Operations


Centers during storms.
The 'outage maps do not
include the causes of outages.
Power outages occur for
many reasons. Leading causes
are lightning or other weather,
tree limbs and animals.
"Our job is to maintain a
reliable system for our cus-
tomers and ensure that power
interruptions are rare," said
Jeff Corbett, senior vice pres-
ident of energy delivery for
Progress Energy Florida. "But
when they do occur, we are
committed not only to restor-
ing service as quickly and
safely as possible, but also to
providing information that is
useful to our customers, in as
many forms as possible."
Customers who lose power
should call to report the out-
age. The quickest 'way to
report an outage is to call
Progress Energy's automated
system at (800) 228-8485.
Reporting an outage over the
automated system ensures
that the information is
received and crews dis-
patched as quickly and effi-
ciently as possible.

subsidiary of Progress Energy

tricity and related services to

Hope for the best, but

plan for the worst

As if to illustrate the urgent need to think ahead
when planning protection for public school students,
comes a week with one assault in a middle school in
Ohio, and the serious threat of another in
Pennsylvania.
In fact, according to the USA Today, there have
been more than two dozen school shootings since
Columbine High School in 1999.
As if the danger itself weren't enough, consider the '
young ages of the assailants last week's were both
14 years old. It is sobering to admit some children
today are so filled with anger or evil, or uncontrol-
lable urges, they can do nothing but lash out.
It is impossible to imagine the pain such an ordeal
would bring, should we here in Highlands County be
so unfortunate. But the seemingly idyllic settings of
so many disasters, should warn us no one is immune.
Better to prevent than to grieve.
This is why we thank the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office for the work its members have done
creating the Critical Incident Response Plan, which
includes minute details of every public school so
responses in an emergency can be rapid and flexible,
with critical areas and needs already considered and
prepared.
Thank you, among many things, for taking on the
responsibility of doing the difficult and trying to
think of every detail; of doing the tedious data entry
necessary so information can be retrieved quickly;
and for reaching out to all law enforcement depart-
ments within the county,'as well as to outside agen-
cies that have already developed similar programs.
Sheriff Susan Benton emphasized the work was a
group effort and involved Capt. Paul Blackman, cap-
tain of law enforcement division, Sgt. Monica Sauls
and every school resource officer.
It cannot have been easy to imagine such a dreadful
situation, or to play out what we all hope will never
happen. '
T.Thoe of us kept safe, from uncomfortableithoughts; ,;.
as well as dangerous *actions, would do well to
remember that quiet burden. It would have been easy.
to avoid the whole issue and just hope for the best.
But we can't simply leave things there, as in, whew,
now that's taken care of.
Keeping children safe requires persistence and
effort.
And we all need to play a part.
One way is by paying attention.
,News stories report, in the aftermath of the tragedy
in Cleveland, how tell tale signs of trotible were over-
looked.
Those of us who are close to children, whether they
are our own or not, are usually the first to see those
warning signs.
Do think about reaching out.
Fortunately in this county there are many people
and places to turn to for advise, or to sound an alarm,
including school resource officers.
We owe it to our children and grandchildren to fol-
low through on the sheriff's excellent start.

Superintendent issue
needs to be debated
Editor:
Having worked in a Florida school system
for almost 30 years and currently employed
by The School Board of Highlands County, I
have witnessed both pros and cons for
appointed and elected superintendents. It is
an issue that you could and-should be debated
thoroughly before a decision is made. You
could bring to the table many issues in favor
of both.
The current debate is being presented to
the public in a railroad fashion, leading us to
believe that it is now or never in order to get
it on the ballot. Reading
between the lines of the
published letters in the
newspaper, I tend to
believe the current debate
group has a personal 'One
issue with the current
administration and is not Conersi
necessarily considering freedom o0
what is really best for
Highlands County is that go
schools. I do not have a
problem with looking into be prohit
the issue and comparing ..
"te facts with other,coun-, choosing
ties, but I do not think it exe
should be done in a fash- e
. ion that leaves the public
without all the facts JACK F
involved. I would have to journalist/a
-question why the sudden
urgency to push this issue
to the ballot so quickly.
If we are truly considering what is best for
Highlands County, we should have several
public meetings/workshops and put the issue
on the ballot at a later date after all avenues
have been thoroughly investigated. If we
have survived all these years with our "popu-
larity vote," surely we can make it a few
more months.
Many county school boards have made the
wrong decision when selecting their superin-
tendent, and then ended up buying out i' con-
tract, which is an expense that we do not
need, especially in a year when our budgets
are most likely being cut.
I have also heard complaints about the two
"D" schools in.our county from certain par-
ties, but I have not heard anything about our
"A" schools or the progress of any of the
other 14 schools, nor have I heard anything
constructive from these parties that would
serve as a solution for any school.
If you compare our small county to most,
our students are doing pretty well. There will
always be room for improvement, but I per-
sonally can attest to the fact that most of the
school personnel involved are trying their
best to get every student in this county on the
appropriate level.

I would also like to say that no superin-
tendelt can be blamed for everything a stu-
dent does or does not accomplish. The one
thing that no school can overcome is what is
not done in the home.
We are constantly urged to cast our vote
and let our opinions count and now we are
being told that our "popularity" votes are not
good enough to elect the right superintendent.
for this county. Our popularity vote is consid-
ered good enough to elect the president of the
United States, but it is not good enough for
the superintendent of Highlands County
(schools). This is rather insulting to all vot-
ers.
I also find it rather ironic that the very
board members who
would be responsible for
selecting our.superintend-
ent of schools are also,
elected by the "popularity
f the vote" system and do riot
have to have any "school
mCS Of experience." If the public
thef res cannot be trusted'to vote
in a qualified superin-
'ernment tendent, how would they
ever manage to pick out
ted frm five qualified board mem-
bers?'y
who a' f": Please give the voters
e i.' of Highlands County a
Si. little more credit than
that. I think the chances
LLER of having an unqualified
'hor, 2005 board member, voted in
by popularity.alone, is.
much greater than having
an unqualified superintendent. I am sure that
the voters of Highlands County do not appre-
ciate their votes being taken so lightly.

County shouldn't go
into asphalt business
Editor:
-An open letter to the Highlands County
Board of County Commissioners:
I find the news that our Highlands County
government is going into business very dis-
turbing. Isn't the role of the county govern-
ment to promote an economic base for our
community and to encourage investment by
the private sector? Isn't the board's duty to
provide incentives and a regulatory climate,
which creates jobs and economic growth?
Since when has it been the goal for the coun-
ty government to go into business and com-
pete with its taxpayers by taking jobs away
from the economic base created by we, the
taxpayers?

Approaching holiday season not filled with joy for everyone


Well the fall season is here, can you
believe it? Only one month before the
holidays start and new memories with"
family and friends will be created.
Now's the time to check those shopping
lists twice and be sure you're on top of
it. Get those decorations out of the attic
and decide how you want to fix up the
house this year.
While a lot of people are eagerly
anticipating the holidays, quite a few
are dreading them and it's not necessar-
ily due to lack of funds. According to
some leading experts, the holidays are a
depressing time for these people.
What is the reason for bringing up
the subject of depression? October is
Depression Screening Month.
Because this festive season is a time
for family and friends, social gather-
ings, big meals and office parties,'hav-
ing your emotional health in check will
make this season more bearable and
possibly even enjoyable.
It's not unusual for us to go to the
doctor for every other thing. But, when
it comes to our emotional well-being,


our peace of Ja
mind, dealing
with stress, we Jal
seem to accept it lanelle
and try to man-
age it for fear of
being labeled "crazy."
So to "doctor" ourselves we avoid
get together, we choose and/or want to
be alone most of the time, among other
things. Excessive crying is a typical
sign, along with the usual everyday
activities seeming impossible to accom-
plish. Depression even attacks the body
to where you can feel the pain, making
it hard to move, if left untreated long
enough.
Sometimes depression may be caused
by a chemical imbalance in the brhin.
And, of course, trauma can bring it on
or repetitive circumstances that leave
,you feeling stuck with no way out.
Only trained, licensed professionals are
able to determine your cause and how
far along you may be.
There is hope and there is help out
there and it's only a phone call away


elle's
rgon
Dennison


and a prayer
away. God did-
n't give doctors
their brilliant
minds for noth-


ing ... they're
here to help us get the most out of life
when we can't manage on our own.
There's no shame in asking for help.
Instead of pushing your family and
friends away, who try to give you "pat"
answers for something they don't
understand, just accept their presence
and enjoy not being alone for the time
they offer. Look for the little lights near
the end of the tunnel, appreciate the
flowers in bloom, make yourself look at
that rainbow, listen to a child's laughter,
whatever it takes to set your mind and
emotions free a few minutes from the
pain. It's a long haul to recovery and
will take one step at a time and one day
at a time.
Leave the "needing to be under-
stood" to the counselors who are
trained to understand. Leave it for the
support group filled with others like


yourself who have found ways to
counter-attack the depression. Not to
say they've never felt it again, but they
don't fall into hopelessness when they
do. They have found ways to "get back
up" and stay up.
You can google RealAge depression
for more signs and a free test (they will
ask for your e-mail address and recom-
mend possible follow-up treatment to
seek out). You might also consider call-
ing the Marge Brewster Center at 385-
5179, or Daybreak Behavioral Health
Services at 314-HELP (4357) for a
screening or advice.
Celebrate Recovery is an awesome
support program with a variety of sup-
port groups. It's headed up by Pam and
John Sims, who are licensed counselors
and have helped many people with
issues from addictions to depression
and in between. They meet on Tuesdays
at 6 p.m. for a meal and fellowship,
then 7-8:30 for a sing-a-loig and group
sessions. No one condemns you there

LETTERS
Continued from 12A
From what I understand,
the county commission
voted to spend $3.5 million
in taxpayers money to com-
pete with the private sector
or reduce the jobs available
for local established contrac-
tors. This just doesn't make
sense to me.
The proposed asphalt
plant will be built for sup-
plying asphalt, but will not
provide the labor for paving.
So this means that the coun-
ty will be taking jobs from
established businesses that
provide the product and
service. This government-
owned business will be
directly competing with
established companies
whose owners and/or
employees have lived and
paid taxes in this county, in
other words supported you,
for more than 15 years!
Have you thought of what
will happen if these entities
refuse to provide the service
for your product? Or maybe
relocate to an adjacent coun-
ty?
I can't be the only one
that is disturbed by the
actions of our county com-
missioners. Really the deci-
sions that they have been
making lately are very ques-
tionable. Are they truly con-
sidering the best interest of
the people (taxpayers) of
Highlands County or is
county government now
going to compete with busi-
ness, plus continue spending
our tax dollars? On the
Highlands County Board of
County Commissioners' Web
site, their mission is simply
stated as ... "Setting County
Policy and Spending
Taxpayer Dollars Wisely." Is
there a conflict of interest
here? Would you want your
"competitor" to have their
hands in your pockets?
My last thought is ... does
someone in the county com-
mission family need a job?
Maybehe/e hsihe jill the.''
. manage or foreman oftiis
new plant. As a Highlands
County citizen and taxpayer
this decision is disturbing
and makes nonsense to me.

Guest Census Laws
need to be changed
Editor:
The uninvited Guest
Census Laws need to be
changed. It creates unfair
representation for each state.
All peoples are counted
regardless of legal status,
the legal, the illegal, and the
guest worker are all counted.
It gives those states with


large amounts of illegals a
larger amount of representa-
tion in Congress, thus
rewarding those who violate
our laws, giving voice to
illegals. The huge amount of
illegals and guest workers
over the past 30 years have
so lowered the financial sta-
tus, or buying power, of the
working class that America
is in crisis, facing financial
collapse, with many families
facing loss of homes and
bankruptcy.
It is also causing the col-
lapse of our electoral
process. It cannot be correct-
ed by the 2008 election. The
past two presidential elec-
tions were flawed by this
same census count.
Our immigration laws
"will work," if the Supreme
Court and those who we
have elected to public office
follow the letter of the law
and do not pander to those
who stand to gain power or
money by not'allowing the
law to work.
Example: Violating states
rights when it comes to ille-
gals. Illegals are not immi-
grants, but are uninvited
guests who are invading the
United States. They are not
undocumented people, but
are invaders. Those who are
in denial of calling a spade a
spade, are in effect, destroy-
ing the electoral process.
Our infrastructure and the
electoral process has been sc
damaged by this problem
that it will take years for the
United States to recover.
Our next president must
address our border problems
which is the greatest danger
to the sovereignty of the
United States.
A fence and troops on the
border are preferred to war
with Mexico. Either way this
has to be addressed. Mexico
is the conduit for all illegal
drugs, as well as the conduit
for illegals from all over the
world.
They, those who are elect-
ed, will have to revisit our
.. "unfair trade laws," WTQ,
Nafta, Cafta and those now
being proposed. ,..
The threat to states rights
by an outdated census law
can and will destroy our
electoral process, giving
voice to millions of illegals
to further destroy America's
sovereignty.
I am one American that is
tired of having "anyone"
labeling those whoware try-
ing to correct our illegal
problems -as "racist." Those
we elect to represent us who
aid and abet illegals should
step down.
Trying to compare illegals
as immigrants is untrue, they
are uninvited guests. The
uninvited guest is not wel-

Thank you Sebring
CBOC veterans
Editor:
For three years, you've
spoiled me and allowed me
to try to do the same for
you. I hope I did my part in
successfully accomplishing
your patient care needs.
Unfortunately, with the tran-
sition from a contracted
facility to a VA-run opera-
tion, which takes place Nov.
1, it was decided that some-
one else was more qualified
than me. It was a privilege
having that opportunity to
work for you. I hope your
VA care between us was
exceptional.
Thank you for your
smiles, prayers, support,
care and acts of kindness.
It's not that I didn't want
to stay. I tried. If you want
to do one more thing for me,
I ask this favor ... I am ask-
ing all veterans to help
another veteran obtain his
Purple Heart he deserves
and never received. He has


received a letter from
Senator (Bill) Nelson's
office willing to lend a hand.
Please submit a request to
his office showing "your
support" for this fellow vet-
eran achieving this overdue
award and honor. The veter-
an is Clyde Briggs who
resides at the Palms of

'Night on Broadway'
was spectacular
Editor:
For the past 26 years
everyone who knows me
understands how much I
admire and love The
Highlands Little Theatre and
with every performance it
gets better. Last Friday night
I really got lucky and was
taken by friends Stella and
Ed McGowan to see "A
Night on Broadway" and
this turned out to be the
most awesome show I have
ever seen (including
Broadway).
This spectacular, elaborate
musical performancegthe
dancing, singing, lighting,
choreography, well, I just do
not have the vocabulary to
cover my appreciation and
admiration for this unbeliev-
able large group of talented
people who are bringing all
of this to us-in Highlands
County and, don't forget,
they are doing it all for no
salary!
I wish I could name you
all but I just couldn't begin
to and you all deserve a
"Tony." Thanks so much for
all of the long hours of work
you do for us, we love and
appreciate you all.

Sebring's Garnich determined


to win breast cancer battle

Was awarded CeCe Courage award by Lunch Club


By CINDY MARSHALL
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING It is Goldie
Garnich's positive attitude in
fighting her battle with breast
cancer that caused her to be
recognized with the CeCe
Courage award at the Lunch
Club Wednesday meeting last
week at the Sebring Elks
Lodge.
Garnich, of Sebring, is
described as a "bundle of
energy" and a "person who is
always busy," according to
Diana Albritton, coordinator
of Lunch Club Wednesday
and a breast cancer survivor.
Garnich has displayed great
courage ever since she was
diagnosed with cancer,
Albritton said.
Garnich has a pre-operative
appointment set for next week
at Moffitt Cancer Center and
a tentative date for surgery in
November. So far her physi-
cians do not consider her can-
cer to be aggressive.
Albritton said, "The CeCe
Courage award was designed
to award ladies in our club
who demonstrated courage in
good and bad times and
Goldie fits that criteria."
Garnich is a member of the
Heartland Cultural Alliance,
Highlands Little Theatre,
Highlands Art League and
Lunch Club Wednesday. She

Ah, sweet

mystery of life
Two friends of mine
got me to thinking about
mystery stories. They
asked me what genre of
books did I like to read
the most. I replied that I
like mysteries as much as
romantic novels. If the
plot contains romance and
mystery, the book has the
makings of a best seller
for me.
Wondering to myself
what generated my inter-
est in mysteries, I thought
back to the books of my
childhood. My favorite
books were those of the
Judy Bolton series, writ-
ten by Margaret Sutton.
These books began being
published in 1932 and
continued until 1967. You
can imagine how much I
wish I had kept the books
I owned. When looking at
www.judybolton.com/, the
Web site dedicated to
Judy Bolton books, I
found out there had been
a 75th anniversary festi-
val in Coudersport, Pa.,
the first weekend in
October that I missed.
Also on the childhood
list of favorite stories are
those of the Bobbsey
twins, found at www.
keeline.comlBobbsey/.
What makes this Web site
so fun are the pictures
showing the different
bookjackets. The Bobbsey
stories began to be pub-
lished in 1904. The ver-
sions I became familiar
with were in the Nos. 4, 5
and 16 formats.
Nancy Drew Mysteries,
by Carolyn Keene, came
into my reading circle
later, than the above
books, mostly because
girlfriends were reading
them or I could get them
from the school library.
The Web site nancy
drew.mysterynet.com/ has
some of the old familiar
favorites and many new
offerings.
Early on, I realized I
was not interested in hor-
ror stories, even though
some of my strongest
childhood memories are
of 1925's "The Phantom
of the Opera" with Lon
Chaney (www.lon
chaney.com/) and "The
Pit and the Pendulum"
with Vincent Price in
1961. Boris Karloff
(www.karloff.com/) was
right up there also, even
though I never watched
the original "Franken-
stein," knowing it would
scare me out of my wits.
When I was about 6
years old, I inadvertently
turned on "The Hound of
the Baskervilles" with
Basil Rathbone, from
1.939 (www.basilrath
bone.net/). It wasn't uritil
Highlands Little Theatre
brought the show,to the
stage that I was able to sit
through the entire show
without nightmares
(http ://highlandslittle
theatre .org/index.html).
This for a girl who read
all of Edgar Allan Poe's
stories before she turned
12 years old! There are
79 hits on www.dog
pile.com for Poe, includ-
ing several from the dif-
ferent cities where, he
lived and wrote. Poe is
known as the father of
cryptology.

'Michael Clayton' needs a 'fixer' to overcome its many flaws

At first glance, "Michael

Faith Missionary

Baptist Church
SSEBRING Pineapples
will be the decor for the 1.1
a.m. morning Worship serv-
ice. Pineapples will be used
to illustrate the second Fruit
of the Spirit, which is Joy.
Come and hear how the pas-
tor connects a pineapple to
joy.
Last Sunday, the pastor cut
an apple in half and showed
us the inside revealed a star.
However in order to see the
star you have to cut it in a
way that most do not cut.
Most of us cut with the stem
down and cut into slices or


wedges, or pick it up and eat
around the core and we total-
ly miss the star.
The star was there all
along, but it was missed by
doing it "our own way."
So many go through life
missing the message that God
loves us. God adores us as
humans. The Bible says we
are the apple of His eye. We
are Stars to Him. He wants us
to have a personal relation-
ship with Him. He wants us
to be in His presence. He
delights in us.
Just as the apple only has
nutritional value if you eat it,
so Christ can only change
your life if you choose Him
to be your Savior and Lord.
Each person-took home at
least one apple for them to
remember how special they
are to God.
Pastor Ken Lambert is
preaching a series on the
Fruit of the Spirit listed in
Galatians 5:22-23.
The church is hard to find
(tucked neatly in a residential
area by Woodlawn
Elementary School).
Each service is joyfully
interpreted for the deaf.

Mystery clouds the life of Samuel S. Moody


By ELIZABETH WALKER
News-Suin correspondent
ramuel S. Moody, for-
merly of North
Carolina and the great-
great-great-grandfather
of John Moody III of Lake
Placid, enlisted in the mili-
tary to protect the white and
live oaks in Florida, but it is
a mystery whether or not he
ever had the opportunity to
perform that duty.
His enlistments are con-
firmed on selected payroll
rosters during the War of
1812.
A careful study of letters
from Lt. Col. Smith,
Moody's commanding offi-
cer, to the then Governor
Mitchell, other officers, and
those obligated to provide his
military requirements,
reveals various accounts of
battles with Indians, slaves,
British and Sianish invaders.
However, no mention is
found referring to any of his
men having protected the
white oaks. He complained
bitterly and often of the hard-
ships his men endured due to
the lack of support, supplies
and reinforcements.
These letters were accumu-
lated by T. Fredrick Davis
from the Library of Congress
and published in the Florida
Historical Society
Quarterlies. The report
includes five sections under
the title of Fort Mose
Histories and may be found
on the Internet.
Since Moody served in
companies that were fighting
battles across northerri and
eastern sections of Florida it
would seem logical that he
was involved in those battles
rather than protecting the oak
forests along the coasts and
islands of Florida.
The president of the
United States declared war
on Great Britain on Jure 18,
1812. In 1813, General
Andrew Jackson forced ces-
sions of millions of acres of
native land in Georgia, open-
ing them to hose eager to
settle the newly acquired
lands. Surviving refugees,
slaves and some of the
Creeks fled southward escap-
ing into Florida.

Two selected battles
Soon after he enlisted Aug.
1, 1812,' it appears that
Moody was among the volun-
teers sent to aid in the Patriot
War at Camp Hollingsworth.
The mission under Col.
Newnan with 117 Georgia
Volunteers would be to
destroy Indian towns
throughout Florida.
After several small skir-
mishes, on Sept. 27 they met
King Payne and 75 Seminole
warriors. The fight was long
and tough. Many Indians and
Negroes came from sur-
rounding areas to reinforce
the bands of Seminole
.Indians.
Samuel Moody was famil-
iar with the process, having
fought Creek Indians in
Georgia a few years before
when he lived in Liberty
County. It was while there he
met and married Jace Dixon
in 1804. She died in 1805
while giving birth to his son,
Samuel S. Moody Jr. In
1806, the General Assembly
of Georgia offered Moody a

The USS Constitution (Old Iron Sides), a three-masted heavy wooden hull frigate launched
Oct. 23, 1797, and restored in 1997, as she looked in Massachusetts Bay on July 21,
1997. White Oak lumber from Georgia and Florida was used in her construction and her
restoration. She is the oldest commissioned ship afloat in the world.


land grant of 490 acres in
Wayne County as payment
for his service in the .war to
chase the Creek Indians from
Georgia.
After Moody's re-enlist-
ment Feb. 12, 1813, the unit
received active orders to loot
and burn all Indian towns
they found, drive off the
Indian's cattle and capture or
kill all Negroes, free or
slaves. Part of their mission
was to destroy Bowleg's
town, but none of the guides
knew where it was located.
They found Payne's Town
deserted and discovered that
Indians had left quite some-
time before the troops
arrived. They found only a
few scattered Indians to chal-
lenge.
The expedition was of lit-
tle consequence. The United
States, fearing war with
Spain, ordered the troops to
disband March 31, 1813.
According to military
records, Moody was ill when
his troop was disbanded
March 31, 1813.


Oaks
It was the oaks that
Samuel S. Moody was hop-
ing to protect when he went
to war. Oaks were the pre-
ferred wood for shipbuilding
when President George
Washington ordered a fleet of
six frigates in 1772.
Live oaks grow with a
gnarly grain pattern with
many limbsa response to the
harsh environment of the
southeaster coast. The lumber
is used for framing, "com-
pass timbers" or curved
beams, breast-hooks in the
cutwater area, pin rails and
fife rails.
White oaks are grown at
the Naval Weapon Station in
Crane, Ind., where
Constitution Grove was
established in 1976 specifi-
cally to supply wood for Old
Iron Sides, which will be 210
years old on Oct. 23.
The long straight grain of
white oak makes it superb. for

tives. It is used for longitudi-
nal exterior-hull planking,
inside planking wherever
wood must be severely bent,
and near the keelson, due to
its decay-resistant nature.
Old Iron Sides' 160-foot
keel is fashioned from four
white oak timbers.


The majority of trees large
enough to be used for those
purposes are up to 200 years
old and difficult to find. The
white oak has reached 100
feet in height with a spread
of 50-80 feet, becoming as
heavy as 483 pounds per
cubic foot. Live oak, white
oak, and other woods are
being stockpiled in an Air
Force hangar for the preser-
vationists of the future.
When ships were routinely
constructed of wood, the
Navy stockpiled timbers;.but
since the beginning of steel-
hulled ships, the Navy has let
its stores of ship timbers
become depleted. It takes a
decade to dry out timbers
with the huge dimensions
required by "Old Ironsides,"
ship builders report.

Moody family
After Samuel's parents,
William and Barbary, died in
North Carolina, the remain-
ing family moved to Georgia
and Florida. Samuel was one
of five offspring. When the
Spanish opened north Florida
to settlers,.part of the Moody
family moved to Florida.
Samuel may have been in
that group. Later he returned
to Georgia to live in Telfair
County where he served as a
member of the petit jury
drawn from the very first
term. Telfair County had just
been formed from Wilkerson
County in 1807.
On June 14, 1810, he mar-
ried Sarah Ann Lee. It is
'believed that Samuel and his
new bride joined the family
in Florida. When trouble
started and war seemed emi-
nent, Samuel sent Sarah back
to Telfair County for the
birth of their son, Benjamin,
who arrived April 15, 1811,
Samuel and some of the
family moved back to
Camden County, near the St.
Johns River, before his re-
enlistment Feb. 12, 1813.


On Jan. 13, 1815, about
600 British troops attacked
Point Petre, overwhelming
130 soldiers. The British
seized St. Mary's, looted
jewelry and fine China from
its residents, and burned the
fort. They burned all the
buildings at Point Petre and.
took the cannons. It was
described by an American
officer who came there in
1818 "as a poor and dreary,
miserable place." It was
never used again as a mili-
tary outpost.
Samuel S. Moody died at
sea in October 1815 and he
was honored with a Masonic
funeral in the area of St.
Mary's town in Georgia.
After Moody's death, his
wife, with.their son
Benjamin, and her brother
John Lee, moved to Hamilton
County. She and Benjamin
lived together in Columbia
County for a brief time
before again moving to
Hamilton County, where she
died in 1853 and was interred
at Swift Creek Cemetery.
Some members of the fam-
ily settled in the Arredonda
area near Hawthorne, Levy
Lake and Orange Lake south-
east of Gainesville.

Coming soon
Watch for the next episode
featuring Benjamin Moody,
son of Samuel and Sarah, as
he is heavily involved in the
development of Florida.
These Moodys are ancestors
of John Moody III, seen
working crews around town.
to help keep the city of Lake
Placid to remain beautiful.
He is an officer from Avon
Park Correctional Institute
and supervises an average of
five men two to three times
per week maintaining the
grounds.
He schedules time to vol-
unteer in the genealogy
department of the Lake
Placid Library.

Yo~ur Q~Ud


Avon Park

at

Bartow
Records
Avon Park 1-5; Bartow 0-1
History
These two teams first met in 1956 but
given the difference in size of the
schools, they have met only nine times
in total. Avon Park has won one of the
nine times, in a 14-13 victory in '57.
The last time the teams met was in '04
with Bartow prevailing, 48-0.
Last Week
Avon Park: Lost 28-12 to LaBelle at
Joe Franza Stadium.
Bartow: Lost 34-13 against state
power Lakeland.
Game Notes
* Albert Moses has been moved back
to starting quarterback.
* Virgil Cooper has been moved to
tailback after five starts at quarterback
for the Red Devils in a move designed
more for matchup than production.
Coach Speak
Avon Park's Earnest Perkins: "IWe
have been up all week. We are ready
for Bartow. These kids are not
quitters. We are gonna give them 48
minutes of football. Our defense is
solid. And on offense we have made
some changes. We are gonna pass the
ball more this week."


Lake Placid

at

Dr. Lennard
Records
Lake Placid 2-4; Dr. Lennard 0-7
History
As one of a host of newer schools in
south Florida, this will mark Dr.
Lennards' first meeting with the Green
Dragons of Lake Placid. As district
rivals now, the rivalry certainly looks to
grow.

Last Week
Lake Placid: Had an open date.
Dr. Lennard: Lost toTampa Bay
Technical High School, 35-10.

Game Notes
* Linebackers Jonathan Simons,
Albert Calderon and Josh Hickey are
probable for the game after suffering
from injuries the previous two games..
* Tonight's game is the first of three
straight district contests.
Coach Speak
Lake Placid's Tim Grant: "The extra
week off really helped us get healed.
We've had some guys hobbling, but
now they're starting to come around a
little bit. I've been telling the guys,
there still is an outside shot for a tie in
district and we still haven't played
Bishop Verot yet, so we're getting that
into their heads. Lennard has been
playing tough and lead BishopVerot
13-0 at one point and was.just down'
toTampaTech 14-10 in the fourth
quarter." '


Sebring

at

DeSoto
Records
Sebring 3-3; DeSoto 5-0
History
In one of the longer and more closely
contested rivalries, Sebring and DeSoto
first met in 1927, when the Bulldogs
gave the Blue Streaks their worst loss
in history, 86-0. Sebring has
rebounded from that first meeting but
trails the series 27-24-1.
Last Week
Sebring: Had the week off.
DeSoto:Trounced Bayshore at
Bradenton, 35-14.


Game Notes
* DeSoto is the district leader and
preseason pick.
a Three of the final four games are
district matchups, with each being key
to maintaining a chance at the
postseason.
Coach Speak
Sebring's Jared Hamlin: "Our offense
continues to improve. Everybody can
play this week. Our
defense is solid and understand what
they have to do. Desoto has some
good athletes, but we really can't key
on just one player, if we do the
other ones will whoop us for sure. It's
just a matter of getting the job
done this week.."


College Volleyball

Lady Panthers end home


schedule with win


s Acton










Hardee

vs.

Braden River
Records
Hardee5-1; Braden River 3-4
History
Given that this is Braden River's first
full varsity season, it's no surprise that
this will be the first meeting between
the two schools. But it should be the
first of many with the Pirates now
listed as a district foe.

Last Week
Hardee: Had their bye week of the
season.
Braden River: Lost to North Port by a
13-7 score.

Game Notes
a Quarterback EsayiYouyoute, injured
in the opening game of the season, is
still out.
After this matchup, Hardee only has
DeSoto as a district game among the
three remaining.
Coach Speak
Hardee's Tim Price: "I look at it this
way, they (Braden River) beat Avon
Park and Avon Park beat us, so you
have to be leery of them.They have a
regular offense, a two-minute offense
and a goal line offense and they're not
afraid to run any of them at any time.
If we lose another one, we have to rely
on help (to make postseason).We can't
rely on anyone else, so we have to win
out."

AVON PARK The home
slate for the SFCC Lady
Panthers came to a suddenly
abrupt end Thursday night,
but on a makeshift "sopho-
more night" the girls ended
things on a high note with a
three-game sweep of the Lake
Sumter Lakers.
The scheduled match with
Broward Community College
for next Tuesday, Oct. 23, was
canceled due to a three-way
tie in the conference race, this
night unexpectedly became
the last home match for four
SFCC sophomores, Michele
Remlinger, Amy: Birkmeier,
Mallory Strall and Laura
Whitaker.
And with their own post-
season chances over with, the
night proved to be a mix of
high spirits and relaxed play.
Not relaxed in the sense of


sluggish and tired, rather with
an easy-going, having-fun
and letting-loose sort of feel.
"When we realized this
would be the last home game
for the sophomores, it really
got the girls up," head coach
Kim Crawford said. "And
they all went out and gave a
real good, collective effort."
Despite falling behind
early in each of the games,
once the Panthers got their
claw-hold, they left little in
doubt.
Giving up the first point in
the opener, the leapin' ladies
jumped back to take a 4-2
lead and slowly started to
build it up.
From 6-4', it was soon 12-6,
then 18-10, before a late little
spurt by the Lady Lakers
brought it to 24-19.
But from there, SFCC
outscored Lake Sumter 6-2

Shaanan Spiegel took second

Totaling 344.27 points over
his 11 dives, Spiegel finished
second to Auburndale's Matt

qualified him to move onto


the regional meet next week-
end.
The top eight finishers in
each event advances, although
in diving a score of 280 points
is also needed to advance.
Coming close to the magic

Junior Devils singe Sebring


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK The
Avon Park Red Devils jun-
ior varsity gave the
Sebring Blue Streaks a
resounding 48-6 thumping
Thursday night at Joe
Franza Stadium.
The Streaks struggled
early and
Avon Park t u r n e d
O over a
48 safety to
the Devils
Sebring in just the

6 first 3 min-
utes of the
game.
On the surface, it would
seem that Avon Park's 194
yards compared to the
Streaks'105 yards does
not paint the whole pic-
ture.
But Sebring turned
over the ball five more
times allowing Avon Park
to score 36 points before
the half.
Poor field position and
turnovers throughout the
rest of the game definitely
put the Streaks on the los-
ing side of the scoreboard.
Avon Park's 4 fumble
recoveries, two intercep-
tions at key times and a 62
yard punt return for a
touchdown by Leroy
Bonds shows that the
Devil's defense was there
to play as well.
The Devil's quarter-
back Avierre Conner aired
out the ball nine times
with six completions and
three touchdowns.

in the junior varsity Red Devil win over Sebring
Thursday night.

target Alzono Robertson
for two of those TDs.
Sebring did manage to
score early in the fourth
quarter, but the two-point-
conversion attempt was no
good leaving the score 42-
6 Avon Park.
Avon Park's next clock
eating drive ended in
another score, this time off
a short Drew Rushing run,


putting the icing on the
cake of the 48-6 Red Devil
win.
"It's surprising that this
JV team is mostly fresh-
men," head coach Duane
Council said of the team
that lists only five sopho-
mores on its' roster. "With
some seasoning, they have
the potential to be Avon
Park's best team in years."


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

Ko-be, or not

Ko-be? That is

the question

This is just a terrible
conundrum for me, both for
how it makes me feel in the
moment, and what it makes
me realize I might be becom-
ing.
There are two things I
despise in professional sports
(there are actually probably
plenty more, but we'll focus
on these two for right now) -
Kobe Bryant and the fan
mentality of winning at all
costs.
As much as Kobe has pat-
terned his life after one of
my all-time favorites,
Michael Jordan, to me he
seems to be the anti-Jordan.
Or at least the young
Jordan before he learned
how to trust and make his
teammates better and pre-
ferred to put on his own per-
sonal highlight show every
game.
Add to that, the scandal in
Colorado that Bryait played
a part in innocent or guilty
as a court decision may have
been, there were definitely

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

By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Florida
Lawnracing Association
members from all over the
Sunshine State will be con-
verging on the Mower-Plex
Saturday night for the second
mower racing competition of
the season. Last month began
with better than two dozen
S competitors racing on the dirt
and spokesman Sid Whiteside
said more racers are expected
for this week's event as they
complete work on their
machines for the new season.
"There are about four or
five guys that weren't there
last time, and some have more
than one mower," he said.


Last month, a number of
competitors doubled up their
victories, taking top honors in
more than one division.
Pat Sullivan of Venice took
the checkers in both the
IMOW and AP classes, while
Sebring's Scott Thieme won
in both the SP and BP divi-
sions.
Jerry Gilbert from Punta
Gorda dominated in the very
fast FX class with mark
Tucciaone winning in the CP
feature race and young Nolan
Goad from Mullberry in Polk
County was victorious un the
Junior Production class.
Beginning their sixth year
at the country's premiere
mower racing facility, the


Florida Lawnracing
Association has hosted hun-
dreds of racers and thousands
of fans. The track is located
on the far western end of the
Avon Park Municipal Airport.
Since its initial competition
in 2001, they have added per-
manent stands, lights, a public
address system and a scorer's
tower among other amenities.
The FLA recently was pre-
sented the coveted "Golden
Blade Award" by officials of
the United States Lawn
Mower Racing Association.
Because so many of the
FLA members had done so
well in national points races
the statewide chapter took top
honors this year.

SFCC
Continued from 1D
for the 30-21 win.
Mixing and matching a bit
more in the second game, the
Lady Panthers saw little drop-
off in productivity.
Down one after the first
point, again they charged
ahead, gaining a 4-1 lead that
soon grew to 8-4.
But the Lakers hung around
a little longer in this one, edg-
ing back to as close as 19-17.
SFCC, however, broke it
back open on some monster
kills from freshmen Sheeva
Noshirvan, Avon Park's Kysi
Wooden and Katie
Hausmann, closing out the
30-24 win.
From there, with momen-
tum on its' side and the team
in an obviously enjoyable
mood from the smiles and
laughter on the court and
bench, the third game wasn't
in doubt for long.
Up 3-2, with Strall serving,
the Panthers reeled off three
straight points, then moments
later with Birkmeier on the
serve, another run of four
straight points brought the
lead to 14-4.
Lake Sumter did manage to
get back into it a bit, closing

On the last home date of the
season, SFCC got a good
look at the future with the
high-flying freshman

chipping in with some boom-
ing spikes.

to 16-10, but that was as close
as it would get as another
series of scoring runs saw
SFCC win going away, 30-18.
"I don't think we've lost to
them (Lake Sumter) since
I've been here and I was able
to get some freshmen in to
play more," Crawford said.
"It was a fun night."
But with just an away game

'It was a fun

night.

KIM CRAWFORD
SFCC head coach
at Warner Southern and a,
tournament at Hillsborough
remaining on the schedule, an
eye is already being cast
toward the future.
"We got to see more of our
freshmen tonight and we have
recruits coming in for visits
soon," Crawford said. "We're
already gearing up for next
year."
But the stat line gives one
more opportunity to look
back to this season past and
the talent being lost, as
Remlinger lead the team with
11 kills on the night and Strall
paced the defense in digs with
17, while Birkmeier was busy
doing a little of everything to
help in their final home win.

KOBE
Continued from 1D
some sordid details that
don't paint him in a very
good light.
But with all this abhor-
rence I have for him, I do
readily recognize and accept
his phenomenal talent as a
basketball player.
With his continuing saga
of possibly being on the way
out of Los Angeles, the
rumors are flying that
Chicago and Dallas are his
top-two preferred destina-
tions.
I wouldn't think the
Lakers would want him to
remain in their conference,
so it would seem they'd be
pushing for a trade with the
Bulls.
The baby Bulls have
grown up and are showing a
lot of promise, and may very
well be able to compete for a
championship as they are.
The team is great defen-
sively, play a high-energy,
fun and exciting game, have
a very nice chemistry with
each player buying into head
coach Scott Skiles "team"
mentality, and have a bud-
ding, if-not-already- here,
All-Star in Luol Deng.
And there are still some
great youngsters (Tyrus
Thomas and Joakim Noah)
who could step up and have
a huge impact.
But there are doubts, with
their leading scorer being
Ben Gordon, a streak-shoot-
ing, 6'2" guard.
With Bryant's enormous
ability being added to the
mix, the team could be a far
stronger contender than they
are now.
But of course,,Bryant's
enormous ability and con-
tract, means a host of players
would have to be packaged
to make the deal work.
So there's the risk of
breaking up the solid core
and adding in a piece that
might not fit.
Besides, they are our guys,
the guys we drafted and
= watched grow up into the
competitive team they are
now.
That's the mentality I grew
up having.
Sure my teams might not
have always been so good -
but I'd rather have my guys
giving their best.
I never liked the idea of
just going out and getting the
biggest names, the highest
paid players so we'd have a
team of all-stars.
As this years' baseball
playoffs are an example of,
that isn't a sure-fire way to
win.
Add to that, going out and
getting a player that by and
large we really, really dislike
to help our team do better?
That just never sat right
with me.
Then again, at the time the
Bulls picked up Dennis
Rodman he was perhaps pub-
lic enemy number one to
Chicago fans but he soon
became something of a folk
hero.
I really don't like Kobe
Bryant, but jeez, he's so dog-
gone good.
I don't really want him on
my team, but I'm thinking of
packages of players that
would disrupt the team the
least and be able to get him.
Keep as much of the core
group and get him, and this
team is on the brink.
Leave things as they are,
or add a lesser-known but
more fitting piece or two,
and they might be already.
I don't want to be one of
those "win-at-all-costs" fans.
I don't want to be some-

er I despise if it will help my
teams' chances.
But sometimes it is hard
not to.
