County's skies won't be quiet for long

One operation just ended, another set for next week at Avon Park Range


U.S. Navy/MCT
While they won't be breaking the sound barrier like this
one, U.S. Navy F/A-18 Hornets will likely be seen in
'the skies overhead next week when Atlantic Strike VI'
comes to the Avon Park Air Force Range.


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Air traffic has been heavy
bver Highlands County for about the past
week as a joint exercise called "Jaded
Thunder" has been under way, at [iie Avon
Park Air Force Range.
Officials said due to the nature of the
activity not much could be re\ejleJ about
exactly what was going on, however, they
did reveal there were an estimated 300 units
from the Air Force, Navy, Army and special


operations involved in the activity that fin-
ished Monday.
In response to questions about loud
explosions at the range some of which
could be heard as far away as Sebring -
officials said the blasts came from artillery
and mortars.
"There was no dropping of live ordnance
from aircraft," Air Force Captain Wes Ticer
said.
But this week's lull in jets and other
activity will be short lived! Things are slat-


,ed to pick up again next week when
Atlantic Strike VI comes to town. That will
be a major training event with the Army,
Air Force and Marines working on an urban
close air support operation. Air Force
Public Information Officer Capt. Nathan
Broshear said the latest incarnation of the
exercise would be very similar to Atlantic
.Strike V, which was conducted at the Avon
Park range last April.

candidates
News-Sun staff reports
AVON PARK Voters in
Avon Park got to take a look at
the four contestants for
Councilman Doug Eason's
open seat on Mdnday night
during candidates' forum.
Hosted by the Avon Park
Hinson C 'Chamber of Corimmerce and
moderated by News-Sun corre-
Spondent Ed Baldridge, the
forum gave those running a
chance to e\p.laln? Eir posi
tons on several: of the issues
facing the City of Charm.
Each candidate was given
two minutes for his 0or hier
introduction and a chance to
Miller :, tell why he or she was running
S" for council. Questions were
selected at random, and cov-
-.] :t ered a wide selection of current
issues facing Avon Park.
Paul Miller, a 30-year resi-
dent of Avon Park, opened the
discussion by expressing his
disagreement with the current
fire assessment for churches,
Rahenkamp stating that such a "tax" takes
money away from kids.
Jim Rahenkamp focused on
Business concerns in his open-
ping remarks. He stressed his
opinion that government
should be hands off in as many
Situations as possible, making
it easier for businesses to open
in Avon Park and allowing the
Shirey free enterprise system to work.
He also expressed his desire to
stop the vertical increase in taxes for the citizens,
and to look closely at building a "horizontal". tax
base that included expanding the city's bound-
aries.

Five different ani-

including a horse that
may have drawn just a


little more attention than the others after all, it
was the largest animal, even larger to the elemen-
tary school-students.
Mason Smoak was the host of the station and
provided students with a little color commentary
side by side with facts.

been a quiet hurricane season
this year. And although
Tropical Storm Noel is cur-
rently churning its way
through the Atlantic Ocean
"tow yards Florida, current pro- "
jections have the storm curv-

the state.
Despite the low probability
of a direct hit locally, the
county's Emergency
Operations Center is watching
the storm closely.
"We're just monitoring,"
Henley said. "We've been
watching it."
EOC will take a closer look
at the storm's track today to
determine if any preparation is
necessar\ If Noel were to take
a turn towards the Heartland
region, the EOC would begin
a "long list" of preparations,
Henley said.
"It's just a long list of
things automatically put into
play," Henley said, "every-
thing from making sure
staffing is available to making
sure everything's fueled up
and making sure shelters are
ready to go."
The EOC would also hold
meetings, with governmental

the two dozen .dogs that strutted their
Halloween stuff on the catwalk.
The costumes ranged from pit bull
Savannah's prisoner stripes (the only
thing she was guilty of was stealing the
heart of Sandra McMillan, her owner) to
Abigail Wiggins' chihuahua Harris, who
dressed up as Paris Hilton.
Come to think of it (just when you
thought you heard the last Hilton joke),
what's the difference?

A fair chance to get a job

Big crowd of employers, job-seekers expected

at Thursday's SFCC Fall Employment Fair


News-Sun photo by TREY CHRISTY
Do you want a "Cold War or a warm peace" was the question asked by the song with the
same name late in the production of "Konflict" The girls from Russia were more than happy
to toss their partners off the stage, as were the boys to take a dive.


Russian students enjoy warm welcome

trey.christy@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID Cooler
temperatures are a nice
change from the recent hot
Heartland weather, but 12 stu-
dents in Lake Placid are more
than happy for the "warm"
weather.
"It is negative 4 degrees in
St. Petersburg now,"
Anastasia Safyanovskaya
said, a Russian student visit-
ing Lake Placid. "It is very
warm (in Lake Placid.)"
The 12 students visiting
from Russia are here as part
of a cultural exchange hosted
by the Center for. Russian-
American Behavioral Studies
and the Lovewell Institute for
the Creative Arts.
"It's a learning methodolo-
gy, making art as an educa-
tional experience," Lovewell
founder David Spangler said
of the method he has used. "It
is good for international
exchange, to get them work-
ing together on the same team
so everybody wins.",
During the summer, four
Lake Placid students traveled
to Russia as part of a Young
People's Project, one of the
first hosted by the CRABS
-- and Lo\e\vel1 organizations,
to collaborate on making a
play.


Gun rumor locks down
Sebring Middle School
SEBRING All is well at
Sebring Middle School after
police responded to the
rumor that a student.had a
gun on campus Tuesday:
The school was locked
down for 90 minutes, accord-
ing to Sgt. Michael Warner of
the Sebring Police
Department.
"One of the students
thought they saw another stu-
dent with a gun," Warner
said. "(The School Resource
Officer) promply notified us
... we were immediately dis-
patched."
The SRO, Wilma Tindell
of the SPD, eventually dis-
covered it was a rumor.
"They locked the school
down, then the first student
changed their story a little bit
and might have been mistak-
en," Warner said.
Tindell and Det. Lucretia
Milbrecht did searched the
student's backpack while
Larry Carmody conducted
student interviews, Warner
said. Tindell was credited
with helping solve the solu-
tion as quickly as possible
while keeping the safety of
staff and students in mind.
"Our students and staff
implemented our play very
well," Doug Thoburn,
Assistant Principal.for SMS
said. "We really appreciate
the fact that parents were
understanding."

For 14 years CRABS has
hosted cultural exchanges
with adult professionals, such
as doctors and psychiatrists,
and only recently did the pro-
gram delve into the younger
age bracket.
"I was touched by how
quickly the barriers were
brought down; it was amazing
how they shared similar opin-
ions that gave birth to the
project here," CRABS
founder David Optekar sa;d.
The play, titled "Konflict,"

These ideas were explored

last week, they were in for a

"We have'attractions in St.

SEBRING Unemploy-
ment has been at historically
low levels for dozens of
months, so when the South
Florida Community College
Campus Career Planning &
Co-op Center throws its doors
open on the Fall Employment
Fair at 4 p.m. Thursday, it
may be as beneficial to
employers as it is to potential
employees.
Paul Fox, who is the Career
Center director for SFCC,
said the event is being done in
cooperation with the
Heartland Workforce with
additional help from RJ
Gators.
"The main goal for our
annual Employment Fair is to
create an awareness of local
and global employment
opportunities," Fox said.
The fall job fair is sched-
uled at the beginning of the
seasons, both holiday and
tourist, to provide those look-
ing for jobs anid those looking
for workers the maximum
opportunities for temporary
or permanent full-time or part
time jobs.
"For instance United Parcel
Service will be here the whole
day Nov. 1. They could hire
as many as 40-50 people just
for the three-county area to
help during the busy
Christmas season," he said.
There are 45 businesses
scheduled to be set up withl
representatives from the
health care industry, banking,
media, governmental agen-
cies, hospitality and retail
services that will have repre-
sentatives in Building B.

SEBRING A Miami
man died Saturday evening
during a single-vehicle acci-
dent on Arbuckle Creek
Road, according to the
Florida Highway Patrol.
Jerry Gonzalez, 57, was
west bound at Triple G Road
,when he drove off the should
and lost control of his Ford
pickup. According to a FHP
report, Gonzalez's truck col-
lided with a driveway culvert
and overturned, ejecting him

tain permits,or degrees for the
posts being advertised. For
instance, there's a trucking
firm needing people with spe-
cialized licenses to handle
some of their vehicles. There
also are law enforcement,
rehabilitation and financial
services who are looking for
employees.
"We definitely have raised
the bar a bit this year," Fox
said. "More and more compa-
nies are looking for creden-
tials and that experience fac-
tor."
Additionally, Fox said
some of the firms, such as
Cross Country, would provide
training for those who wish. to
go to work.
"There are some of these
companies that are looking
for people with what we call
'soft skills,' individuals that
are dependable, sincere and
motivated. They'll work with
them and train them," Fox
said.
Fox described the Job Fair
.as an informal way to inter-
view for jobs. He said it was a
good. time for job seekers to
talk with the human resources
representatives who would be
at the event to find out what is
necessary and needed at the
various firms.
"We'd like this to be a dia-
logue," he said.
Fox emphasized that those
coming to the Job Fair should
be dressed prepared to inter-
view. That includes bringing
resumes and other kinds of
documentation as. well as
making arrangements for
child care.
"Quite frankly, this is
something employers are
looking at when \they're
screening potential workers,"


he said.
For those. who need help
with their paperwork, Fox
said SFCC will have a table
that will assist people in run-
ning off a copy or two of their
resume or other necessary
documentation.

Sheriff's Office assumes



airport security for 48 hours


Security manager's
altercation at bank,
absence concerned staff

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING With an
"abundance of caution,"
Sebring Regional Airport
Executive Director Mike
Willingham hired off-duty
officers to keep watch over
the airport, and its chief secu-
rity guard.
The call to Highlands
County Sheriff's Office was
placed at 9:39 a.m. Monday,
when a female employee of
Craig D. Graybill Jr. Security
Service showed up in the air-
port manager's office.
"She was very concerned
about him," Willingham said,
explaining the employee had-
n't seen or heard from her
boss, Craig Graybill Jr.; since
Thursday. "About his state of
mind, his well being."
During a telephone inter-
view as he drove to an out-of-
town conference Tuesday
morning, Willingham
recounted the concerns as
they were told to him.
Graybill left work
Thursday afternoon his
office is at 136 Authority
Lane, at the' airport -
allegedly concerned about
untimely payments from the
airport authority. Then, he
was involved in an altercation
at Wauchula State Bank.
"With all the things going
on in the world today, I was
concerned," Willingham said,
explaining his focus shifted to
the safety of airport patrons
and employees.
He instructed Erik-Treudt,
airport manager, to call
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office and request a special
security detail.
Before a deputy arrived,
Graybill. showed up and was
asked to leave, Willingham
said. Sheriff's Capt. Paul
Blackman on Tuesday con-
firmed the airport signed a
contract for security services
to cover business hours from
6 a.m. to 6 p.m. through
Friday at the standard $40-
per-hour rate.
By Tuesday afternoon, the
duration of the contract was
shortened to 48 hours and
Graybill's company would
resume its security mission.
"I put him back to work,"
Willingham said of Graybill,
explaining a 4 p.m. meeting
Monday between himself,
Graybill and Treudt alleviated
his safety concerns.
Graybill has been the air-
port's security manager for
12-14 years and the two have

Al Joe Hinson spoke of his
passion for the people of
Avon Park. Born and raised
here, he stated his desire to be

All the candidates men-
tioned several times their
wish to increase the commu-
nications between city coun-
cil and the citizens of Avon

One of the issues of the
evening included the future of
Avon Park's airport.
"The airport should be used
to attract new business,"
Miller said.
"The airport is positioned
to be the premier airport in

use it to service Highlands,
Hardee and Polk counties,"
Shirey said.
"There is no reverse gear in

Graybill


enjoyed a "very .satisfactory
relationship," Willingham
said.
Graybill told Willingham
that he left a note Thursday
explaining his whereabouts
and that the altercation at the
bank was with a former
Graybill employee, not bank
staff.
As for payments owed to
Graybill from the Sebring
Airport Authority,
Willingham 'said he has
always paid the security com-
pany the appropriate amount
owed and on time.
. Sebring Police Officer
Raymond Rossy responded to
Wauchula State Bank at 3:53
p.m. Thursday, about an hour
and 13 minutes after Jack
Marsh allegedly tried to cash
a payroll check on the
Graybill Security Service
account.
"The bank told him they
could not cash it because of
insufficient funds," Rossy
wrote in his report. "Marsh
said that he has had this prob-
lem before and called his
boss, 'defendant Craig
Graybill Jr."
According to Marsh,
Graybill said he would come
to the bank 'to handle the
problem. Meanwhile, he told
a co-worker that Graybill
allegedly didn't have -enough
money to pay them.
When he arrived, Rossy
said, Graybill spokA with a
teller, then allegedly con-
fronted Marsh outside.
"Marsh said Graybill ended
his side of the argument and
yelled at him, 'You could go
and cash your check now and
return the company uniforms
to me,'" Rossy wrote. "Marsh
... said, 'You will get your
uniforms when I get the rest
of the money you owe me.'"
Graybill allegedly "rushed"


and 'encourage the airport to
expand, then let -businesses
know," Rahenkamp said.
"I would love to see the air-
port grow, and invite people
out to see that
growth," Hinson added.
Another issue candidates
had to answer to was the
needs in the south side of
Avon Park, and the funding to
fulfill those needs.
"The south side of Avon
Park is no different than any
of the other parts of the city.
The council needs to work
together with the people -in.
those neighborhoods to solve
problems, and provide infra-
structure," Miller said.
Rahenkamp used the
opportunity to discuss the
impact fees. "We need to
remove theimpact fees keep-
ing businesses and builders
from building there. We
should ask the question, 'what
can the city not do?' In other
words, have the city govern-
ment take a hands-off
approach to business and
allow them to naturally grow.
Business growth leads to a
broader base of taxation,
which leads to the money to
repair more infrastructure."
"I hope we don't neglect

row of bushes in front of the
bank at 1385 US 27 South.
Marsh denied medical treat-
ment and Rossy took pictures
of the injuries and listed two
witnesses to the alleged shov-
ing match.
"Based on the information
gathered, an affidavit for sim-
ple battery will be completed
and forwarded to the state
attorney's office for their
Revieww" Rossy said in the
final statement of his report.
SWillingham said the state
attorney's office indicated it
wouldn't pursue misdemeanor
battery charges. Treudt spoke
with. an unidentified female
Monday morning at the state
attorney's office who said the
case lacked witnesses and
physical evidence.
Asst. State Attorney Steve
Houchin said he and his assis-
tants were unaware of the
case Tuesday afternoon.
Joyce Woods, a Graybill
Security Services employee,
contacted law enforcement
Saturday.
"Joyce advised that
Graybill is not known to go
out of town without letting
anyone know," Sheriff's Dep.
Amanda Dettman said in an
"endangered missing adult"
report.
Noting the altercation two
days prior, Woods was con-
cerned for his safety but did-
n't formally report Graybill
missing.
Dettman spoke with Juanita
Brisson, who did initiate a
missing person complaint.
The deputy also spoke with a
"Mrs. Manley" (first name
not 'given in the report) of
Mussleman's Storage, ,who
said she saw Graybill's vehi-
cle Friday night at Kenilworth
Boulevard warehouses.
"Manley advised that
Graybill had been known to
leave for a while when he was
having financial problems,"
Dettman said in her report.
"Graybill asked for his check
early this past week."
The "bolo" be on look
out for Graybill was can-
celed Monday morning when
he arrived at the airport.
Graybill didn't return two
messages left with his office'
and Marsh didn't return a call
left with his brother, who said
-Marsh was out of town.

future," Hinson said. "But
there is a need to offer new
incentives to encourage busi-
ness growth."
"As far as I know, the south
side has always been included
in the city's plan, and if there
is any time that it has not been
included, then we should
address that," Shirey said.
When asked what qualifica-
tions each had to fulfill their
role on the council, each said
their desire to serve, and their
long records of previous pub-
lic service. Each candidate
finished with a call for people
to get out and vote!

Snippin' a sunflower


Wednesday, October 31, 2007 5A


American Party of Florida to spend Thursday

evening preparing for upcoming election season


News-Sun photo by SUSAN FOSTER
Caleb Strickland, 3, from Sebring uses a small pair of scissors to cut a giant sunflower
Saturday at the Henscratch Farms. Youngsters who visited the winery were treated to
free hot dogs and lemonade and had the opportunity to go on a horse drawn hay ride,
decorate pumpkins or play hide and seek in the sunflower patch.


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Candidates,
campaigning and pending leg-
islation are among the topics
of discussion set for Thursday
evening when the American
Party of Florida holds its
monthly session.
"There are a lot of seats
that will be open on the local,
state and even national levels
and we are quite interested in
recruiting good, solid, legiti-
mate candidates to run under
the' APF banner," State
Chairman Tom Macklin said.
The party's platform has
only three planks. Term lim-
its, government accountabili-
ty and vertical enforcement of
the country's immigration
statutes are the major provi-
sions. Macklin hoped the sim-


plicity of the core beliefs of
the APF would draw hopefuls
who have become disenchant-
ed with the two major parties.
The idea is to talk with
members about the means of
finding candidates, then help-
ing them to make an effective
campaign for office repre-
senting the citizenry rather
than policies set by a political
hierarchy.
"Our petition to make
English the official language
of Highlands County has been
very effective and we plan to
bring that forward in the very
near future. If county com-
missioners decline to take
action on it, or at least put it
on a ballot, our intent is to
make it a core issue in the
upcoming election," he said.
Macklin also is scheduled


to give an update on the
Federation for American
Immigration Reform legisla-
tive summit he recently
attended in Orlando.
Among the speakers were
Director of the Immigration
Reform Law Institute Michael
Hethmon; Collier County
Sheriff Don Hunter; Carol
Helms, director of
Immigration Reform for
Oklahoma Now; and Joyce
Mucci,- Federation for
American Immigration
Reform's southern field rep-
resentative.
The APF meeting will be
Thursday at Homer's
Restaurant in the Sebring
Square shopping complex.
Social hour begins at 6 p.m.
with the meeting to start at
6:30.

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING '- Dennis and Lenora
McElroy are once again returning to the
Sebring area to provide the people of this
community with their very own fresh
produce retail outlet. The McElroys are
no strangers to the Sebring area as they
opened up the first fresh produce stand in
Highlands County in the Wal-Mart park-
ing lot way back in December 1996 and
remained there until Wal-Mart remodeled
into a Supercenter in 1999.
At that time Dennis and Lenora relo-
cated their McElroy Citrus and Produce
stand across the highway from Wal-Mart
to a storefront in the Sebring Plaza where
they remained until they sold out in 2001
to concentrate more on their already
established wholesale produce business.
The McElroys are no strangers either
to the fresh produce business, opening up
theit very first fresh produce stand,
which was also the first fresh produce
retail outlet at the Auburndale
International Flea Market back in 1991 in
Polk County. At that time they also
developed their first produce wholesale
business by delivering fresh produce to


many independent grocers, mostly in the
Polk County area.
Realizing that the Sebring area no
longer has a truly fresh produce outlet,
the McElroys have decided to return to
the area by opening up a brand new fresh
produce retail, outlet guaranteeing the
freshest produce available to the people
of the Sebring area.
How do they do this? By actually mak-
ing the trip themselves to the. Farmers
Market in the Tampa Bay area and per-
sonally pick out the freshest produce
available to sell to their customers at
their new L & D Produce store, 3025
U.S. 27 North in Country Plaza, which is
a storefront in the strip plaza just south
of Wal-Mart on the same side of the road.
Their store hours are from 9 a.m. to 7
p.m., Monday-Friday and 9 a.m. to 4

Say' do' to open financial communication with your spouse


Not to sound like Dear Abby, but
the key to maintaining any sound
relationship, whether friendship,
business or marriage, is open and
honest communication. This
becomes doubly important when
finances are involved ask any
divorce lawyer.
Whether you've just returned
from your honeymoon or are about
to walk down the aisle, sit down -
right away and have a heart-to-
heart conversation about your
respective financial histories, say-
ings philosophies and long-range
investment and retirement plans.
The last thing you want to discover
unexpectedly is that your new
spouse is deeply in debt or a shopa-
holic.
Here are a few topics all couples
should discuss:
Put your cards on the table. If
you've got student loans or credit


card debt, bring it up now. Before
planning an elaborate, expensive
wedding, think about how much
stronger a financial foundation
you'll lay if you first lower your
debt load.
Align your goals. Nobody
expects their spouse to share identi-
cal views on everything, but if you
have diametrically opposed life
philosophies, you could be headed
for trouble if you don't clear the air.
Discuss issues like:
Home ownership. Decide how
important this is to you as a couple
so you can start planning and sav-
ing. If one partner has other,
stronger priorities; you'll need to
sort that out so you can work
together as a team.
Education. If one or both of
you want to continue or return to
college, factor those costs into your
budget. It maN mean you both work
Ili


part-time, one
spouse supports
the other through
school, or you
Stake out student
loans together.
Starting a
family. Some
people want kids
Personal right away; oth-
ers prefer to wait.
Finance Make sure you
Jason Alderman agree on when
(or if) you want
to start a family and begin saving
.right away. Consider affordability
issues around stay-at-home parent-
ing and/or childcare.
1 Retirement. It may seem pre-
mature to be discussing retirement,
but it helps to be on the same page
so you can plan accordingly. For
example, if you both want to retire
.at age 55, ou'll probably need- to


begin an aggressive savings plan in
your 20s. Consider consulting a
financial professional for your fami-
ly's particular situation.
Be prepared to compromise.
Many people wait until later in life
to marry or remarry, so they're
often set in their ways and have dif-
ficulty compromising, especially
about finances. Set basic ground
rules for things like agreeing on
major purchases, savings strategies
and budgeting.
Share financial duties. Many
couples opt to have one person
manage all the finances, from bal-
ancing the checkbook to choosing
retirement investments. It's not like
choosing who does the dishes, how-
ever: You both need td take an
active role in all major financial
decisions. Worst case what if
something happened to one of you?
The other should be able to step in


and run the show.

NOEL
Continued from 1A
municipalities in the county.
At the same time EOC would
be in constant contact with
the state, National Hurricane
Center, National Weather
Service, and other officials in
order to keep up with the
storm's progress.
"We basically play it by ear
until it looks like it's going to
be a near miss or a direct hit,"
Henley said.
However,-even if Noel is a
direct hit the winds will like-
ly not be strong enough to
have a major impact on
Highlands County.
'"With the fact that it isn't
predicted to even be a hurri-
cane, we wouldn't request
shelters to be opened or any-
thing else," Henley said,
"because winds wouldn't be
high enough to warrant evac-
uations."
As of late Tuesday Noel's
winds were measured at near
40 mph. And although the
storm is currently over land
and expected to strengthen
slightly when it moves over
the Atlantic Ocean, the storm
is not projected to be any-
thing stronger than a
Category 1 hurricane.
In the event of an impend-
ing hurricane, voluntary
evacuations begin when
winds are around 70 to 75
miles per hour because those
winds are strong enough to
damage some mobile homes,
Henley said. When the winds
reach 100 mph and above, all
shelters will be open, in part
because many of the county's
older homes are built to with-
stand winds no stronger than
90 mph.
Despite its status as a trop-
ical ,storm, Noel has already
resulted in the deaths of at
least 20 people in the
Caribbean,- mostly due to
mudslides in, the .Domini.aan,

"It originally was called

evolved and they later changed
the name to Atlantic Strike,"
Broshear said.

students squeezed their own

rewarded by drinking the

"It had a lot of fun stuff
and was all about nature," he
said, adding "and we looked


at animal skeletons."

Leon Kerney found the straw-

Strawberry milkshakes

Students celebrate National School Lunch Week


Special to the News-Siun
SEBRING The National
School Lunch (NSLP) is a
federally assisted meal pro-
gram operating in Highlands
County schools to provide
nutritionally balanced, low-
cost or free lunches to chil-
dren each school day..
The program was originally
established under the National
School Lunch Act, signed by
President Harry Truman in
1946.
To raise public awareness
about the nutritional value of
the federally funded lunch
program available at schools
and to involve students, par-
ents and the community in
school lunch every year, a
week in October is designated
National School Lunch Week.
This year was no exception.
Tasha Hunter, the Cafeteria
Manager at Sun 'N Lake
Elementary, invited her stu-


dents .to participate in the
nationwide "Vote for School
Lunch" campaign to learn
more about healthy meal
choices at school. Each stu-
dent cast a ballot for their
favorite lunch food character
and entered a drawing to win
prizes.
To add to the festivities,
Sun 'N Lake staff dressed in
red, white and blue and deco-
rated the cafeteria with an
election theme.
This year's lunch food
character candidates included
Jes.se Wrap, Pippa Potato
Patty, Mac 'n Cheese, Biff
Burger and Yumi Rice Bowl.
The 2007 nationwide winner,
announced on Oct. 22, is Biff
Burger. Highlands County
students cast over 3,500 bal-
lots and also agreed that Biff
Burger was their favorite.
Approximately 60 percent
of the county's students qual-

Breast Cancer Foundation, an organization dedicated to
help save lives by increasing awareness and providing

Editorial &S Opinion

Serving Highlands County since 1927
CLARISSA WILLIAMS ROMONA WASHINGTON
Publisher Executive Editor


DAN HOEHNE
Sports Editor


The debate rages on


over property rights

Property rights.
It is a difficult topic. One that can get a crowd riled.
At least that was our experience here one heated
afternoon in the newsroom recently.
When it comes to property rights (and here we
mean specifically owning land) there are so many
competing and conflicting rights, needs and jurisdic-
tions that getting people to reach a general consensus
is difficult indeed.
We certainly couldn't in our discussions which
had heads popping up over the cubicle dividers in
moments of high excitement.
At one point an editor had to wave a threatening
yardstick as in, calm down children or someone
gets a whoopin'.
However, we were able to find islands of agree-
ment.
Because we arrived at no resolution, neither will
this essay, but some interesting points of view got
everybody thinking.
There were two passionate underlying perspectives.
On the one hand was the absolute right for a. prop-
erty owner to do whatever he wanted to do to his land
including even harm it; provided that harm did not
extend beyond his boundaries.
On the other hand was the acknowledgment of
human mortality, and with it the need to think of the
future and protect it. That with land people owe a
larger responsibility than their own immediate need.
People are stewards, not owners.
But that is the abstract debate.
We took a whack at the concrete problems private
property creates too.
Where does public end and private start?
And who and what is public?
And what is an eyesore? Who decides?
For example, is a shade-tree mechanic different
from a yard full of cars up on blocks? And where does
public nuisance begin and innovative landscaping
end?
And what about fences? For example, if you have
to climb something to be able to see what offends
you, can you really complain?
What do neighbors owe one another? Crowded
quarters can make for hurt feelings.
Then come the toughest questions of all. What do
we do about government regulation? How to deal
with policies that are out-dated 'or misplaced? Or
worse, regulations, which look good on paper, but
that clash in reality.
Take, for example, the property owner who has
been told to plant trees, but won't be allowed to water
them because of restrictions resulting from the
drought.
Don't get us wrong.
We understand the need for government response to
a drought situation. And working to upgrade the envi-
ronment, in this case by proving a green cover in an
industrial area, is a legitimate government goal (well,
in truth, not all of us agree with that statement).
But it does seem unfair to force someone to do
something doomed to failure from the start.
That, however, doesn't address the real question -
can the government actually make us plant plants, of
their choosing?
The debate rages on.



Mentoring moments


Around August, at the
beginning of the school
semester, my journalism
association and I decided to
start a mentorship program.
We wanted to mentor high
school students and we want-
ed to pick a school where
students needed the most
encouragement.
We decided on a local
school that had an overall
grade of an "F." I made a call
to the school and shared with
them our vision. They direct-
ed me to the journalism
class, which is a class made
up of mostly seniors in
charge of the yearbook and
the school's newsletter.
I thought everything was
perfect and all that was not
perfect would work itself out
with time. I have had several
mentors and I currently have
a few left in my life. I have
always possessed this raging
desire to give back and this
was finally my chance. When
'we finally met the students, I
was very discouraged
because I got exactly what I
asked for.


On My Mind
Georgia Dawkins
The students were not only
rude but ungrateful! We went
over to meet them during
their normal class meeting
and when we got there they
were doing anything but
dwelling in the learning envi-
ronment. They were on cell
phones, listening to iPods
and mp3 players, talking
amongst each other, and back
talking me and the other
mentor that accompanied me.
I did a quick survey on
how many wanted to go to
college and almost every
hand was raised. Then I
asked how many want to go

Falling into change is always welcome


I must admit to you a little
bit of information. My
favorite time of year is actu-
ally not during the holiday
season, or the turning of
summer. Rather, my favorite
time of the year has actually
just fallen upon us. Each
year, I wait and wait for it.
As October dawns around, I
know the time just keeps
inching closer until the day
that I can breathe in the
freshness.
Then, out of know where, I
wake up one morning and
there it is fall has set upon
us. The first wave of cool-
ness sets in and you can liter-
ally smell the change in the
air. On that day, I notice my
steps have a bit of an extra
pep in them. There is some-
thing about the smell in the
air that reminds my heart that
there is always a season for a-
change.
When I sit back and pon-
der the beauty of the special
day of the year, I realize an

intriguing thing. Life is filled
with changes. Our time is
perfectly calculated out into
seasons. While some states
get to see more of the sea-
sons than others, we all expe-
rience a bit of the freshness
That these times can bring.
It is almost as if when the
heat is getting too close to be
bearable for one more day,
the seasons begin to change.
How true that is for the rest
of our lives as well. The
moment that we think it is


too tough, too unbearable, we
are able to experience the
change. It is all about the
attitude going into the
change. Waking up and
yearning for it and then being
excited to smell the change
in the air certainly does a
smoothing number for the
mind.
We can learn so much
about the characteristics of
the Creator by just sitting
back and watching his cre-
ation. The advancements of
the seasons can bring about
enough awe in your mind for
you to sit back and be thank-
ful that our beings did not
create the world around us.
But,.rather, one who knows
how to perfectly time out the
seasons of change in our
lives and in the world around
us.

A tribute to our veterans
Editor:
Nov. 11 is a day to remember. All
Americans everywhere should proclaim
Veterans Day (formerly known as Armistice
Day) and should be willing to rededicate
themselves to the cause of peace.
Please stop what you are doing and give a
moment of your time to say thanks and ask
God to bless all the veterans. It will give you
a great feeling of gratitude and pride to think
that you took the time to honor our veterans.
who served in the United States Armed
Forces. They have given so much for the love
of their country and for our freedoms that we
enjoy daily. Some are still paying for a debt
we can never repay.
For, without their sacrifices, this country
would not be a great place for us to live in ...
Remember, freedom is not free. Let us
Americans never forget what it cost to pre-
serve our freedom.
Our fathers, brothers, sons and friends are
fighting for its survival every day and we
thank them for their courage and unselfish
sacrifices in the defense of our country.
May God bless them and hopefully through
the grace of God wars will stop and give way
to peaceful settlements.
Remember, one nation under God where
we may always have freedom and justice for
all.
I just hope and pray that the great sacri-
fices that our troops are making now in the
present unforgiving conflict will not be in
vain.
So let us pause, and remember and say
thank you to all veterans and service men and
women, wherever the are, for what they are


doing and have done to make this country a
great place for you and me to live.
God bless America. Keep her safe ... To the
veteran, thank you.

Dabbling
With Daniel
Daniel Bedell


Liar, liar


pants on fire

"Why did you lie to me?"
This has become one of
my favorite phrases. I love to
use it when someone tells me
something like, "I asked you
a hundred times to pick that
up!"
I look at them with sadness
crisscrossing my face and
ask, "Why would you lie to
me about that? You only
asked five times. Why are
you lying to me? Don't you
love me?"
Oh man it's great!! Well,
for me it is great, usually the
"liar" isn't so pleased. My
dad especially hates it.
"Yeah we are lying to you.
Yup, well that is what parents
are, just a big bunch of liars.
Yup, Daniel that's reeeaaally
funny. Do all your college
friends laugh at that? Well,
hate to break it to you son,
but we don't find that so
funny here."
I get lied to a lot.
Here are some typical lies:
"I don't have any money."
Not even a penny? "Why are
you lying?"
"I will be there in a
minute." Ten minutes later...
"Um, why did you lie to
me?"
'"Just a second." Thousand
one ... yeah, that was a lie.
Yes, if you keep an eye
out, there are lies all around
you, especially on TV com-
mercials.
Let us dissect the lies here.
1. Equally hot people meet
and decide to race. Yeah, I
don't think so.
2. People train for running
by sprinting up skyscraper
stairs. Please.
3. If you did sprint up a
100-story staircase you
would look good afterwards.
Whenever I sprint up any-
thing I look like death on a
bagel.
4. The girl wins. Uhhh ...
not going there but yeah: lie.
5. Beer is a great replen-
isher of fluids after a run.
OK I don't drink, but from
my observations heavy beer
consumption and rock-hard-
abs don't exactly go hand-in-
hand.
6. There are obviously
p ases of beer waiting on
every high-rise rooftop for
hot people in spandex to con-
sume. Trust me if this was
true, bums would not be con-
gregating on the streets.
The scariest thing is I
think some people actually
must be induced to buy more
beer, thinking someday, pos-
sibly this might come true for
them if they just jog near
more stairs.
More lies:
Tin foil.
Tin cans.
Lead pencils.
American football (uhh
last time I checked Tom
Brady wasn't kicking it to
Randy Moss)
Grape-Nuts. They are
made neither grapes nor nuts.
They are made from gravel!
I have found that while
people of my parents genera-
tion may find my "lie humor"
somewhat funny in modera-
tion, my grandpa and his
generation find it only slight-
ly funny ... once! After that,
as he said, "That ain't funny.
Har har har, you're a liar,
crimus. You better cut that
crap out right now."
I never, ever again called
him a liar when he said din-
ner was at 5 p.m. and we
ended up eating at 5:10.
OK, that's a lie.

MOMENTS
Continued from 10A
into journalism, and one person
raised his hand. I was heartbro-
ken. After that meeting, I did not
think that we would survive. The
atmosphere in that classroom,was
very tense.
It has been three months now,
we have had about six weeks,
and we are already seeing a
change in the students and their
attitudes towards us and their
education. At our most recent
meeting, we invited the students
over to our school to tour the
building and then we provided
lunch for the students.
When it came time for them to
tour our TV studio, the kids real-
ly got involved. We allowed a


few of them to sit on the set and
tape their own show and the
other students watched from
behind the scenes. I took tons of
pictures of them; I felt like a
proud parent.
On their way back to school
several of the students asked me
for an application to the school
and that absolutely made my day!
Because they had such a good
time, they will be coming back to
our school to continue their tour.
I am so glad that I did not give
up on them. I cannot wait to see
where life takes them. I may be
more excited about their future
than I am my own. Mentoring
means so much to me.

dent currently studyingjournalism at

The 33 days of training pro-
vide the best possible profes-
sional training and evaluation
for all cadets in the aspects of
military life, administration and
logistical support. Although
continued military training and
leadership development is
included in the curriculum, the
primary focus of the course is
to develop and evaluate each
cadet's officer potential as a
leader by exercising the cadet's
intelligence, common sense,
ingenuity and physical stamina.
The cadet command assesses
each cadet's performance and
progress in officer traits, quali-
ties and professionalism while
attending the course.
Cadets in their junior and
senior year of college must
complete the leadership devel-
opment course. Upon success-
ful completion of the course,
the ROTC program, and gradu-
ation from college, cadets are
commnlissioned as second lieu-
tenants in the U.S. Army,
National Guard, or Reserve.

American Legion
Placid Post 25
LAKE PLACID At 2
p.m. Sunday, a membership
rally dinner will be at Placid
Post 25. Known as the early
bird dinner, it is provided at
no charge to all of those
members who have renewed
their dues to the Legion for
the coming year up to the
date of the dinner. An added
feature this year will be the
fact that those who renew or
wish to join on the date of
the dinner are also welcome
to the free fare.
One of the best ways to
support the troops active,
retired, disabled, hospitalized
or down on their luck is to
belong to the Legion. The
programs depend on the
membership and a great
many of the numbers have
passed on. Members actively
work with the Veterans
Service Council of Highlands
County in service to the vet-
erans.
Other programs include
supporting youth projects,
Boy Scouts, Jr. ROTC, Lake
Placid High School Baseball,
Children's Advocacy, Miracle
League and other worthwhile
community-based projects.
Join and feel the satisfaction
of really doing something
important as well as enjoying
a great meal.

Hibiscus Garden Club
AVON PARK The
Hibiscus Garden Club of
Avon Park met Oct. 11 in the
home of Sybil Laye with Pat
Kinser as co-hostess.
The guest speaker was
Steve Orzell, plant ecologist
on the Avon Park Air Force
Range. Orzell gave a most
interesting visual preserita-
tion on the Prairies in
Florida. Some key points
were:
A prairie,is a treeless
region with coarse grasses
and marshes. Fire or con-
trolled burn is essential for
the prairie plants to survive.
Vegetation on the prairie
consists of various grasses,
herbs, saw palmetto, bromeli-
Ads, orchids, and many lovely
wild flowers.
Raised regions are cov-
ered-with live oak, palms,
and saw palmetto. Indian
mounds are also found on the
prairie.
Surveyors found the
same kinds of plants growing
as in the 1820-1871 survey.
Many of these plants grow no
other place on earth.
There are three Florida
prairies consisting of 1.2 mil-
lion acres Kissimmee
River Valley, DeSoto Glades,
and Big Pine Myaaka.
Club president Nina
Seibold opened the business
meeting with the pledge to
the American flag.
Chaplain Shirley Foster
gave a reading, of "October
Music." Summer is gone and
fall is creeping in. Notice
some color changes in plants
and trees. Though the colors
are not as many and bright as
the northern states, let's
appreciate and enjoy what is
there.
Treasurer Terri Semper
presented the financial
report, which was accepted.


The shipment of new-crop
pecans has arrived. We have
* 400 pounds of select jumbo
halves in one-pound bags and

may contact any garden club
member or call Nancy
Heiring at 453-6897 to place
an order for pick-up or deliv-
ery. All club members will
have pecans to sell.
The Christmas parade is
Monday, Nov. 26. The club is
scheduled to place mall deco-
rations on Nov. 14. Members
will meet at 8 a.m. in front of
Worden Real Estate offices.
The Florida Federation of
Garden Clubs fall meeting
was held Oct. 16 at Naples.
The club has an invitation
to attend a special meeting
with the Lake Placid Garden
Club Tuesday, Nov. 27. It's a
brown-bag affair.
The meeting was
adjourned and members
enjoyed a great time of fel-
lowship and refreshments.

Sebring Optimist Club
SEBRING The
Highlands County
Mentor/Tutor Program,
School Board of Highlands
County and Retired Seniors
Volunteer Program will hold
the annual Volunteer
Appreciation Luncheon at
noon Thursday, Dec. 6, at
The Palms in Sebring. These
volunteers had provided an
invaluable service for stu-
dents in the public schools in
2006-07.
These volunteers have pro-


vided 50-plus hours
mentor/tutoring students to
help them achieve grade level
in reading, writing, figuring
and other subjects, focusing
primarily on the first three
grades. Special awards will.
go to the volunteers with the
highest number of hours for
the school year.
The State Department of
Education has already award-
ed the Gold Medal to 11 of
the 13 elementary and middle
schools for their volunteer
service the last school year.
Avon Park and Sebring high
schools have received the
Silver Medal for volunteer
service.
Thus, it is fitting that the
Highlands County Board of
County Commissioners
passed a resolution recogniz-
ing the Unsung Heroes of
Highlands County, namely
such volunteers noted above.
They are among the thou-
sands who serve their com-
munities faithfully, sharing
their skills, experience and
wisdom with these children
in great need of same.

suggestion: Whenever eating,
put the fork down between
each bite and slowly chew
the food before swallowing.
The program entitled
"Damage Control" was given
by Lil McNeeley. She talked
about some remedies.to try
when we've slipped and
eaten more than should.
She said that studies show
there are 48 hours between
the time calories are con-
sumed and the resultant
weight showing on the
scales.
Tips ]included exercising,
drinking lots of water and
eating very, very little for the
rest of the week.

Kiwanis Club of Sebring made sure the children staying at
the Hansen House not only heard the ice cream truck, but
also got to enjoy some of the tasty treats. Hansen House
executive director Gary Araujo (from left), welcomes
Kiwanians Grace Plants, Laurie Kinslow#,Jane Farrer,
Michelle McMahon and the Ice Cream Man Jim Parker, and
Kiwanian Tom Milam.

Children scream for ice cream


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Tom Milam,
a member of the Kiwanis
Club of Sebring, recently
became acquainted with Jim
Parker, the ice cream man in
front of his house. Milam
could hear the ice cream man
coming down his street
because of the repetitive
"happy" music his ice cream
trailer played. As a hold over
from his childhood days, it
always exited Tom, even if he
didn't want a treat.
Being acquainted with the
Hansen House because of
deliveries of donated leftover
food from Kiwanis events, in
a casual discussion with
Parker, Milam asked how the
Hansen House kids enjoyed
his coming. He relayed that
because of funding priorities,
the Hansen House was unable
to purchase treats for all the
kids and as a result he often
passed by without stopping.
Milam thought how sad it
would be for a child to be


interned at the Hansen House
and to hear the ice cream
vehicle and not be able to get
a treat. How much joy it
would bring if they could
depend on getting a treat at
least once a week.
After a check with Hansen
House supervision and co-
ordination with Parker, it was
proposed to the Kiwanis Club
of Sebring board of directors
to cover the cost of once-a-
week treats for all of the kids;
The board agreed.
Parker coordinated with
Hansen House Director Gary
Araujo and deliveries were
initiated. The kids love it,
Hansen House is happy,
Parker is happy and the
Kiwanis Club of Sebring
feels good about providing
'the kids with this moment of
joy once a week.
The Kiwanis Club of
Sebring meets every
Wednesday at noon at
Homer's Restaurant. Call
Grace Plants at 273-1421.

Special to the News-Sun

the Season," the event that

All proceeds from this event

The event transforms the

oasis with a forest of unique-
ly decorated Christmas trees
and elegant decorations.

Donations or additional con-
tributions for the kidney

MRSA another reason antibiotics

not the solution for acne problem


Special to the News-Sun
Parents across the nation are
worried by the seemingly ram-
pant reports of Methicillin
Resistant Staphylococcus
Aureus (MRSA) infections in
schools across the nation. In
recent weeks, a teenage boy
has died and dozens of stu-
dents have contracted the bac-
terial infection.
Health experts say overuse
of antibiotics has contributed
to the rapid spread of MRSA,
once a problem confined pri-
marily to hospital settings.
The public health concern of
growing antimicrobial resist-
ance is a prime reason 50 per-
cent of dermatologists report
cutting back on antibiotics to
treat acne according to the
Galderma Quality Report for
Dermatology and Managed
Care.
On the surface, acne suffer-
ers might feel frustrated,
believing that their treatment
options have narrowed. But
holistic health experts say
curbing the reliance on antibi-
otics is a step in the right
direction for the millions of
Americans who suffer from
acne-and to the general pub-
lic in light of the prevalence of
drug resistant bacteria.
Chris Gibson, a holistic
health and lifestyle coach and
author of the book, "Acne Free
in 3 Days," believes antibi-
otics are a problematic treat-
ment choice for acne. He urges
parents to be cautious when
seeking an acne regimen that's
safe and effective for kids.
"You have your family 'doc-
tor saying we don't want to
over-prescribe antibiotics,"
says Gibson. "Then you take
your teenager to a dermatolo-
gist and typically one of the
first options has been antibi-
otics. With the drug-resistant
'super-bugs' in the news, no
wonder parents are anxious.
Just look at the numbers
involved. An estimated 80 per-
cent of teens have some acne,
so imagine the volume of
antibiotics being consumed if
only a fraction of these teens
get prescriptions."
The growing problem of
drug resistance isn't the only
drawback to antibiotics. Side
effects are also a major con-
cern. For example, antibiotics
can upset the natural balance


in your digestive track and
stain your teeth.
"I can speak from experi-
ence about the side effects,"
says Gibson, who once suf-
fered from chronic acne. "The
digestive issues alone can cre-
ate a major disruption to the
balance of good bacteria in
your body- the bacteria that
your immune system needs to
stay healthy."
Other medications such as
Accutane have been the sub-
ject of lawsuits after being
linked to heart, liver and
bowel disease along with'
depression anti suicide.
Accutane, normally reserved
as a drug of last resort for peo-
ple with severe, cystic acne, is
also known to cause birth
defects.
"When your skin has prob-
lems it means your system is
taxed," says Gibson. "That's
why you have to attack acne
with a 'big picture' mentality
and find the right balance for
you. For people who've been
suffering from acne for a long
time, to see results in just three
days is.a mind-boggling expe-
rience."

in accordance with Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes (F.S.), and Chapter
28-106, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.),
of the Uniform Rules of Procedure. A request
for hearing must (1) explain how the substan-
tial interests of each person requesting the
hearing will be affected by the District's ac-
tion, or final action; (2) state all material facts
disputed by each person requesting the hear-
ing or state that there are no disputed facts;
and (3) otherwise comply with Chapter 28-
106, F.A.C. A request for hearing must be filed
with and received by the Agency Clerk of the
District- at the District's Brooksville address,
2379 Broad Street, Brooksville, FL 34604-
6899 within 21 days of publication of this no-
tice (or within 14 days for an Environmental
Resource Permit with Proprietary Authoriza-
tion for the use of Sovereign Submerged
Lands). Failure to file a request for hearing
within this time period shall constitute a waiv-
er of any right such person may have to re-
quest a hearing under Sections 120.569 and
120.57, F.S.
Because the administrative hearing proc-
ess is designed to formulate final agency ac-
tion, the filing of a petition means that the Dis-
trict's final action may be different from the
position taken by it in this notice of final agen-
cy action. Persons whose substantial interests
will be affected by any such final decision of
the District on the application have the right to
petition to become a party to the proceeding,
in accordance with the requirements set forth
above.
Mediation pursuant to Section 120.573,
F.S., to settle an administrative dispute re-
garding the District's final action in this matter
is not available prior to the filing of a request
for hearing.

And Another
Thing...

Loria keeping

things scary

this Halloween

Given that this is
Halloween, I racked my
brain to come up with
some sort of column
regarding the holiday.
Some sort of spooky
sports story from years
past. .
SNothing came to mind,
however, but I did find
something scary for
Florida Marlins' fans.
Of course, you know
now that the Yankees hired
former Marlins skipper
Joe Girardi as their new
-manager replacing Joe
,Torre after a sterling 12-
,year run.
SWhat's scary is, that
while with Florida, Girardi
kept a team that had no
'business being in the race,
tin contention until the
final month of the season.
S In honor of his remark-
'able job, he was selected
ithe Manager of the Year
for the National League
that season and fired
'shortly thereafter.
S'In fact, he might have
.\en been fired before he
gIt the a'ard.
j Word was that Girardi
' ad a fractious relation-
ship with the higher ups,
most notably owner
Jeffrey Loria.
Personality clashes and
personal disagreements
aside, wouldn't you want
to hold onto a manager
that was able to pull off
what Girardi did?
Wouldn't you want to
find a way to coexist for
the good of, your
team/product?
Loria, the former owner
of the Expos, who ran that
organization into the
ground, was somehow
then able to buy another
major league franchise,
and his experience obvi-
ously hasn't improved his
ability.
Oh, the Marlins have
talent, that is obvious, and

Jessica Ewing running the right way M


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Jessica
Ewing has been a fixture at
cross-country meets in
Highlands County for a long
time.
The 18-year-old senior has
been running for Walker
Memorial Academy since her
sixth grade year back in 2001.
Jessica and the Walker
Memorial Academy Eagles
will be competing at the
District 5-Class 1A meet at
Taylor Park in Largo on
Thursday at 4 p.m. Avon Park
and Sebring will be running in
the District 5-Class 2A meet
at Lake Park in Tampa.
Lake Placid runners travel
to Naples to run Friday morn-
ing in the District 6-Class'2A
meet.
"A classmate of mine,
Kirsten Johnson, told me that
I would be a good runner,"
Ewing said. "I tried it and
I've stuck with it ever since.
Until she said that, I didn't
know the sport existed.
As a sixth grader, she might
have had a slight advantage
over some of her competitors.
Jessica did not spend much
time with video games or tel-
evision. Her dad worked as
the manager of a ranch and
her free time was spent with
horses and other animals.
Did the ranch help her run-
ning?
"I think it did," she said. "I
was used to the weather and
having to put out energy in
the heat. I like to be outside."
The family has since
moved from the ranch. Last
year her father, Loren Ewing,
began working at a Seventh-
day Adventist Youth Camp in
South Carolina. This past
summer, Jessica, Nicholas
and mom, Judy were busy
with the summer camp.
Jessica wanted to finish
high school at Walker. She
and Nick came back in
August to live with grandpar-
ents. Mom splits time
between the two homes.
Parents and grandparents
have been part of Jessica's


success as well.
"I think they were excited
that I found something that I
do well," she said. "My par-
ents have always been there
for me."
All four were there to see
Jessica win the Rotary
Invitational Oct. 11 in 21:44.
She led the Walker girls' team
to a second place finish.
Yet winning is not the
biggest motivator for her.
"Jessica really just loves to
run," coach John Bedell said.
"She is always looking to do
her best, but she is not there
just to beat someone else. I
have had more competitive
runners but I don't think I
have had any one that enjoyed
running more."
"I try to get a good time,"
she said. "If I win, that is the
frosting on the cake."
She might talk about cake,
but she stays away from it dur-
ing cross-country season.
Jessica avoids sugary desserts
and she is a lifelong vegetarian.
Her self-discipline also car-
ries over to her attitude on
winning. She won her first
cross-country race in her third
season as an eighth grader,
but she did not get a big head.
"She never really talks
about winning or anything,"
Nicholas said. "She never
brags."
Walker girls have appreci-
ated Jessica's leadership on
the team. She has been a cap-
tain since the eighth grade.
"She is always positive and
upbeat," sophomore Megan
Bedell said. "Having her on
our team makes a big differ-
ence. Having someone that
may win, helps give us a name.
"She has rubbed off on us. I
don't hear girls complaining
about running, or at least not
as much. We may be on our
way to a meet and others are
complaining about the heat or
the course. She turns it into a
positive."
Jessica also keeps things
positive in the classroom. The
senior carries a 3.93 grade
point average.

Walker Memorial Academy's
Jessica Ewing, a fixture on
the cross country team since
she was in sixth grade.
When running and school
work are done, she enjoys
"horseback riding, playing in
the lake, water sports and
being outside with my family."
If that sounds old school
for a teenager, brace your-
self.
"I don't have a myspace
account,", she said with a
laugh. "I have a cell phone. I
use it to talk to my family."
"We have really been
blessed to have Jessica here,"
coach Bedell said. "She has
such enthusiasm for the sport
and she is such a great role
model for our girls. I'm look-
ing forward to seeing what she
can do at our district meet. I
think our girls' team has a shot
to get to regionals. It would be
a great gift for our senior."
It would be nice for this
local runner to be on the
receiving end of a gift, since
she has given so much to het:
school and teammates.

from the community has just
been excellent."
The finality of the night
was more the reason for tears
than the loss itself, as


Massung said afterward.
"It's not that we lost," she
said. "I'm just upset that this
is my last game."

the pride and character that
has nothing to regret but thing
coming to an end.
