AP Airport

issues still

up in air

City, county officials
met for two hours
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK It was a
two-hour joint session
Monday evening as members
of the Avon Park City
Council sat down .with
..Highlands County commis-
sioners to discuss what to do
about potential impact on
area development from the
Avon Park Executive Airport.
The session was dominated
by a Highlands County-pre-
pared Powerpoint presenta-
tion from Wes Teal of airport
consultants Wilbur Smith and
Associates.
He showed maps outlining
what Federal Aviation
Administration officials refer
to as' "imaginary surfaces,"
which in fact are designated
air spaces such as runway
protection zones, runway
safety areas, education zone,
accident potential zones,
overflight zones and other
spheres that might be influ-
enced by air traffic.
However, the bottom line
is whether zoning in areas
affected by FAA-mandated
zones Avon Park Executive
Airport should ultimately be
controlled either through an
interlocal agreement between
Highlands County and the
city of Avon Park or under an
airport zoning commission
that would represent both
county and municipal con-
cerns.

County commissioners compromise in 'now or later' hiring debate


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING The county com-
missioners met in the middle
Tuesday in deciding whether to fill
three new division director positions
sooner or later.
At the beginning of the year, the
board held several goal-setting ses-
sions with hopes of streamlining


county operations, improving servic-
es and providing seamless direction
to staff.
Topping their goal short list was
development of an organizational
structure that "emphasizes high-
value services," which resulted in a
restructuring of the chain of com-
mand and four new division direc-
tors Administrative Services,


Community Services, Public Works
and Public Safety.
The assistant county administrator
is the designated director of
Administrative Services and is held
by Rick Helms.
With the new divisions, the com-
missioners eliminated a system that
had Helms and County
Administrator Carl Cool overseeing


roughly 12 departments each.
Several months ago, Cool
announced his plan to retire in June,
meaning the board is faced with hir-
ing three directors and its chief exec-
utive officer irn the span of 12
months.
"I could flip a coin and go down
there and make a solid argument for
either side," said Glades Electric


CEO Tommy Todd, referencing a
conversation about the board's
predicament hire the directors
now or wait until later, after a new
administrator is hired.
Todd went down there and with
his guidance, the commissioners
chose to hire directors now and give

Candidate


speaks to


military


officers
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Following
through with the program to
acquaint members of the local
Military Officers Association,
Tom Rooney (R-Stuart)
briefed the MOAA officers
and members Saturday on
why he should be the con-
gressman from Florida's 16th
Congressional District.
Rooney outlined his views
on local, state and national
issues, emphasizing his. con-
servative background and his
views on the war on terror-
ism.
An Army veteran, Rooney
and his wife were both com-
missioned as Judge Advocate
General officers upon their
graduation from law school
in 1999.
Earlier this year, eight-year
veteran of the Florida House
of Representatives Gayle
Harrell announced her inten-
tions to run for the congres-
sional seat presently held by
Democrat Tim Mahoney.
Harrell, also a Republican
from Stuart, addressed the
local MOAA in April this
year.
Starting his military career
with the Army's famed 1st
Cavalry Division, Rooney
served as a special assistant
U.S. Attorney while stationed
at Fort Hood, Texas, the
largest military installation in
the United States.
From there; he served as an
instructor in law at the United
States Military Academy at
West Point, N.Y.
"I feel that my background
in the military as well as
working in a position to help
our youth would serve me
'well" as '"' Congressman,"
.Roone6 said.,, ..
S In his talk to the members
of MOAA, Rooney stressed
his dedication to the support
of securing the country's bor-
ders, cutting spending and
lower taxes protecting family
values.
"As a husband and a father
of three young boys, I under-
stand the need to protect our
American values," Rooney
told the group.
Rooney was the guest
briefer to the local MOAA
members at their first
Saturday of the month board
meeting at the Military Sea
Services Museum in Sebring.
Following Rooney's pres-
entation, the board conducted
its regular order of business.
Retired Air Force Colonel
Roy P. Whitton, MOAA chap-
ter president, announced that
the third announced
Republican candidate for the
Mahoney's Congressional
seat, Hal Valechy, also of
Stuart, will be the chapter's
speaker on Saturday, Dec. 1,
when the group meets at the
Military Sea Services
Museum at 9:30 a.m. for their
monthly "Coffee An" session
and board meeting.
The meeting is open to all
members and guests.


Super-sized snake

Sebring resident Larry Francisco holds up a 48 inch rat-
tlisnake Thursday afternoon that he killed at his home
on Citroen Drive in Sebring. Francisco believes the
snake came from a vacant lot across the street from his
house. 'At first I thought it was a black snake,' Francisco
said, but then realized it was actually a rattlesnake slith-
ering up his driveway in the middle of the afternoon.
Francisco said he plans to skin it, chop it into steaks
and eat the snake.

Ad Litem office to


hold toy drive


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING There are
around 250 kids in the local
Guardian Ad Litem program,
and presumably, most of them
W', ould.. enjoy receiving
Christas gifts.
The Highlands L Cdimty
Guardian Ad Litem program
is trying to do just that with
its first Christmas Toy Drive.
The drive is designed to pro-
vide Christmas gifts to chil-
dren who are separated from
their parents by the courts
because of abuse or'neglect
situations.
Staff Advocate Juanita
Masters is seeking unwrapped
toys that are suitable for ele-
mentary and middle school-
aged children, specifically
toys such as Barbie dolls, toy
trucks, games, action figures,
art supplies, and other items
that kids would enjoy
"We'll take pretty much
anything," she said, with the
exception of toy knives and
guns (because many of the
children in the program come
from violent family situa-
tions).
Lisa Falcon of the Ad
Litem office added that the
drive isn't seeking out expen-
sive toys,.just toys that cost
around $10 or less. "A $10
toy could change a child's
life," she said.
The Florida Department of
Children and Families had
been doing toy drives for chil-
dren in the program, Masters

said. However, many of the
providers in the program
dropped out last year, which
resulted in many children not
getting the toys they had
requested.
'"They didn't get what they
asked for," Masters. said. "I
thought we could attempt it
ourselves."
A donation box has already
been set up in the Tanglewood
community, and another one
will be placed at the sheriff's
department building soon,
Falcon said. The Ad Litem
staff would be willing, to pick
up toys for people who want-
ed to donate, Masters said, or
the toys could also be brought
to the office.
All donations need to.be in
to the office by Dec. 13, so
that the staff will have time to
wrap and deliver the gifts.
If interested in donating to
the 'toy drive, contact the
Guardian Ad Litem office at
402-6969.

Orangwood Acres
AVON PARK A pre-
cautionary boil water notice
has been issued for all resi-
dents in the Orangewood
Acres subdivision in Avon
Park for 6-feet PVC Tee
eroded causing water main
break.
Therefore, as a precaution,
residents are advise that all
water used for drinking,
cooking, making ice, brush-
ing teeth or washing dishes
be boiled. Residents should


disinfect their water as fol-
lows:
1. A rolling boil for one
minute is sufficient.
2. As an alternative bottled
water may be used.
Where there is a loss of
power and the boiling of
water may not be possible,
residents and businesses
should disinfect their drink-
ing water as follows:
1. Tap water can be disin-
fected by adding eight drops
of unscented household
bleach (4-6 percent active
ingredients) in each gallon of
water, then mixing the water
and allowing it to stand for a
minimum period of 20 min-
utes. Note: Cloudy water
requires 16 drops of bleach
and a 30 minute contact time.
'Also, other approved chemi-
cal disinfectants are available
at stores that sell camping
and hiking supplies.
The "Precautionary Boil
Water Notice" will remain in
effect until the problem' has

Skip a week during cooler


months and help save water


Special to the News-Sun
The Southwest Florida
Water Management District's
new public awareness cam-
paign will ,encourage resi-
dents who irrigate their lawns
to "skip'a week" during the
cooler months.
According to research by
the University of Florida, as
temperatures grow cooler,
grass doesn't need to be
watered as often. The "skip a
week" campaign will use
radio and print advertise-
ments to encourage reduce
outdoor irrigation.
The adds highlight the fol-
lowing tips people can use to
determine when their grass
needs water. Your lawn needs
water when:
iGrass blades are folded in
half
IGrass blades are blue-gray
lA footprint remains on the
lawn
"The cooler months are a
good time to try to gradually
reduce your irrigation to train
your lawn to need less water,"
said Sylvia Durell, senior
communications coordinator.
"Over-watering makes your
lawn less drought tolerant and
can encourage, pests. Using
less water will encourage
deeper grass and plant roots,
which makes them more
drought-tolerant."
Due to below-normal rain-
fall and groundwater condi-
tions, all. 16 counties within
the district are under one-day-
per-week lawn watering
restrictions through Nov. 30.
Climatologists are predict-
ing a La Nina event, which
calls for a drier than normal
fall, winter and spring.
The district, as well as pub-
lic water suppliers like Tampa
Bay Water and the Peace
River/Manasota Regional
Water Supply Authority, are
concerned about meeting
demands during the upcoming

Going a week without watering in the winter will train your
lawn to require less water.


dry season, which could not
set new historic record lows.
Skipping a week of irrigation
would help' conserve potable
water, which could be used
for public supply.
The "skip-a-week" cam-
paign will build upon the suc-
cess of the District's Florida-
friendly landscaping public
awareness campaign, which is
featured during the late winter
and spring when residents are
thinking about gardening and
improving their yards.
"Belief in and support of
the University of Florida's
Florida Yards &
Neighborhoods Program led
to the District's Florida-
friendly landscaping public
awareness campaign," Durell
said. "Following the


University of Florida's nine
landscaping principles can
produce a beautiful, low-
maintenance Florida-friendly
landscape," Durell said. "And
watering efficiently is one of
the important Florida-friendly
landscaping principles."
For more information about
water restrictions, visit the
district's Web site

Serafino's


new novel, 'A


Grandma for


Christmas,'


hits shelves

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING `Sunny,
Serafino, recognized for her
ability to inspire readers with
stories of courageous women,
has done so once again. "A
Grandma for Christmas" not
only has a thrilling new twist
but is a story that will restore.
your belief in new loves, old
faith and the magic that
makes dreams come true.
Madison Millhouse has
always wanted a normal fam-
ily life with love, marriage
and children. Unfortunately
she made some poor choices,
the worst of which was
falling in love with the wrong
man. For 12 years he prom-
ised marriage, but that was
never his intent; now
Madison is ready to call it
quits.
It's Christmas Eve and she
needs a quiet place to think.
What she doesn't need is the
blizzard coming at her as she
drives through the mountains
of Pennsylvania. What she
doesn't expect is that her life
will change the moment she
encounters a frightened little
girl who's been abandoned.
"A Grandma for
Christmas," Serafino's
eighth novel, will be present-
ed for the first time Saturday
at the Fine Arts and Crafts
Festival on the Circle in
Sebring.
Serafino, a much-sought-
after speaker, frequently
addresses Florida women's
associations and church


groups on the topics she
writes about, such as coura-
geous women, family history
and a faith-based look at life.
Autographed copies of her
books may be purchased at
the arts festival and directly
from the author. For speaking
engagements, contact the
author as indicated below.

SEBRING An accident
early Sunday brought traffic
to a standstill for nearly two
hours as a Sebring man was
airlifted 'to Tampa General
Hospital.
James Wethington, 44, of
,Sebring, was riding a 1978
Honda motorcycle when he
collided with the rear end of
another vehicle.
The collision ejected
Wethington and sent the
motorcycle skidding for 160
feet towards the intersection.
Traffic at U.S. 27 and
Sparta Road was reduced to
one lane as officers worked
the accident scene.
Wethington was unsure
what happened and reportedly
told Emergency Medical
Services he thought he was
run over by the vehicle.
Evidence and eyewitness
accounts showed otherwise.
It indicated Wethington ran
into the rear of the vehicle, a
1996 Saturn driven by


Christine Messick, 53, of
Dade City, as she slowed
down to stop for the red light
at the Sparta Road intersec-
tion.
Messick was uninjured.
Her Saturn sustained an esti-
mated $150 in damage.
SDamage to the Honda
motorcycle .was estimated at
$1,000.
Reports stated Wethington
was traveling 60 mph, an esti-
mated 25 mph faster -than
Messick at the time of the col-
lision.
He sustained survivable
injuries from the crash and
was released from the
Intensive Care Unit Monday
evening in stable condition.
He remained at Tampa
General Hospital on Tuesday
afternoon.

Lowe's works for family


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Lowe's
Heroes landscaped the future
home of Rosilyn Dorsey and
family. Along with the heroes,
there was about 20 future
homeowners that helped lay
sod and put finishing details
on the landscaping. When fin-
ished, the homeowner had
tears in her eyes as she looked
at the transformation of a bare
lot to a thing of beauty.
She is fulfilling her dream
.of a home of her own.


Lowe's manager Raymond
Smith said this was the first
time he did anything like this
because the organization he
worked for previously was
not as community involved as
Lowe's is. Every one of the
heroes had smiles on their
faces as they surveyed the,
work being done around the
home.
Highlands County Habitat
for Humanity and Lowe's'
have been partners in helping
the community since Lowe's
arrived in the county.

SWinn-Dixie introducing its own


: brand of vitamin-enhanced water


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
The relative peace of a recent lazy afternoon was interrupted with the unexpected arrival
of a helicopter landing in the parking lot of the Towne Square shopping mall on Lakeview
Drive in Sebring. Turns out the mall's owner, Anthony Lomangino, had brought in a
group of architects and experts to plan out what he said would be extensive renovations.


Special to the News-Sun
JACKSONVILLE -
Winn-Dixie Stores Inc.
recently introduced V-H20,
its private label vitamin-
enhanced water. Citing
research from the Beverage
Marketing Corporate, the gro-
cer said that sales of nutrient-
enhanced drinks in the United
States more than tripled in
volume from 2001 to 2006.
"We are always looking for
new ways to surpass our cus-
tomers' expectations, and we


believe that the addition of
affordable, enhanced bottled
water will be very popular,"
said Don Breen, vice presi-
dent of corporate brands at
Winn-Dixie. "Adding new
Products like these to our
Winn-Dixie line is just one
more way for us to continue
getting better all the time."
Winn-Dixie's V-H20
comes in four flavors: Vitality
Fruit Punch, contains vita-
mins C, B12 and B6 complex;
Endurance Kiwi-Strawberry,


combines vitamins C and B
with vitamin A and lutein;
Energy Tropical Citrus, offers
a mix of vitamin C and vita-
min B complex with guarana;
and Strength Dragonfruit,
containing taurine, zinc and
vitamin B5.
Winn-Dixie Stores is one of
the nation's largest food
retailers with 521 stores.
Founded in 1925, the compa-
ny is headquartered in
Jacksonville.

HARDER
Continued from 1A
working on a partnership with
Sebring Hospitality LLC the
group that terminated its Harder
Hall contract last month because
the city council denied its 30-day
contract extension. However, nei-
ther company would be willing to
risk millions of dollars without
assurances that the project is eco-
nomically viable, Richter said.
"We don't want to waste your
time or our time," Richter said.
'"They're not going to commit
unless they can see it can be suc-
:cessful. The more other people look
into it, the more they will probably
come to the same conclusions.
City Attorney Michael Swaine
mentioned other options the city
could consider to attract more
offers.
"There are all kinds of things you
can do if you don't get satisfactory
offers," Swaine said. "One is to
have an auction to sell off furniture
so you don't need insurance or
security. Or you could knock the
building down, although we all
want to see the hotel continue."
The city could also rezone the
property from its current mixed-use
status to a planned unit develop-
ment, Hoffman said, which would
"make it more valuable if we were
to market it."
Hoffman added that despite the
$40,000 in monthly carrying costs,
"that property is only going to
increase in value. It's 13 acres
between two beautiful lakes. Ten
years from now, it will be worth'
more than it is today."

the Federal Aviation
Administration on the current

not expected to be done until
late January 2008.

ELECTION
Continued from 1A
municipal election. By 4 p.m.
Tuesday only about 500 people
had voted. In the final tally, 792
of the city's 4,095 registered vot-
ers had cast their ballots.
That was well short of the
1,100 to 1,200 predicted by
Highlands County Supervisor of
Elections Joe Campbell.
The turnout, described as
"moderate to light" by sign hold-
ers outside the precincts, was
another feather in the cap for the


the protection zone off
Dilley's property it would sig-
nificantly cut jet fuel sales
and effect Highlands
Aviation, a jet refurbishing
company owned by Jim
Renfro. Because the runway
would be significantly short-
ened, jets could not land and-
be refueled or be hangared for
refurbishing at Renfro's facil-
ity.
Teal said the notion of
shortening the runway on the
northeast end arid extfejding it
on. the southwest appeared to
be both cumbersome' and
expensive.
"Environmentalists have
been out there to look at it.
They're studying the gopher
tortoise habitat, scrub jay
habitat, wetlands and the
like," he said. "There have
been surveyors out there to
see how close that would be
to the power lines at the west
end of the airport..That's all
part of the cost factor."
Furr told the group they
needed to follow a set of steps
that involved both informa-
tion gathering and public
input.
"We need to get all the eco-
nomic data. There's a Wal-
Mart going in over there and a
big housing development
there. Has the Department of
Community Affairs been con-
tacted? The Economic
Development Agancy? Any of
the local Realtors?" he asked.
Furr said before any zoning
recommendations would be
adopted, the "character of the
airport use" must be consid-
ered and that public hearings
needed to be held.

city's experiment with early vot-
ing.
"We had 94 from last Monday
through Friday, which was about
double what we expected so that
was pretty good," Avon Park City
Clerk Sarah Adelt said. She
helped to oversee the early vot-
ing, which was made available
between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on
the week before the election.
Early voting also was
enhanced by absentee ballots.
Another 14 citizens reportedly
made their voices heard in that
matter.


"There are other people
who are affected by this," he
said.
Council members opted to
take a look at the interlocal
agreement with an eye toward
the January report from the
FAA. Councilman George
Hall pointed to the municipal
election, indicating that
Monday night's discussion
could be for naught depend-
ing upon the will of the vot-
ers.
"This, election could
change the entire. direction of
the council," he said.


Campbell said the election had
gone smoothly other than two
provisional ballots and a tem-
porarily jammed machine there
were no glitches. The canvassing
board later approved both provi-
sional ballots based on the vot-
ers' signatures.
As for the jammed ballot,
Campbell said workers simply
opened the machine and ran it
through again without incident.
"Really, it was all pretty
smooth," he said.
Schuler and Hinson will take
their oaths of office in January.

Continued from 1A
a new administrator discretion later.
Todd facilitated the board's goal-setting
process.
On Tuesday, he recommended hiring inter-
im directors from within, with a caveat that
the new director would have discretion in
refining his or her team.
Cool took it a step further.
"Administrators have to work with people
who are easy to work with and some who are
not easy to work with," he said. "The most
important thing is getting quality people."
Cool suggested opening up the directors
search nationwide to deepen the candidate
pool and extending the standard six-month
probationary period to 12.
The commissioners agreed with this com-
promise, which was supported by former
School Board of Highlands County superin-
tendent Ruth Handley.
At a board meeting several weeks ago,
Handley urged the commissioners to not hire
the directors until a new administrator could
participate.
Commissioner Barbara Stewart also initial-
ly opposed filling the director vacancies now
rather than later. Chairrhan C. Guy Maxcy
leaned toward now.
The commissioners defined the probation as
12 months or six months after the new admin-
istrator comes on board, whichever is longer.
Cool said the positions will be advertised
locally and nationally within 30 days and a
search committee would weed out applicants
to present to the commissioners.
It wouldn't be until February when the com-
missioners would begin interviewing select
candidates, he said.
Depending on the individual hired, up to 60
days could pass before he or she starts,
depending on noticing requirements to a cur-
rent employer.

Editorial & Opinion


NeMkSun
Serving Highlands County since 1927
CLARISSA WILLIAMS ROMONA WASHING
Publisher Executive Editor


DAN HOEHNE
Sports Editor


The job is just beginning

for the election winners

This editorial went to press Tuesday before the
Avon Park municipal election was over.
To the newly elected Avon Park mayor and city
council members: Congratulations.
But don't relax, now comes the hard part.
That is because well-rounded, elected officials have
long needed three distinct skill sets, as modern busi-
ness jargon would say it.
You have to be able to raise money; stir people to
action; and most important, be able to solve problems
and create beneficial policies.
Vastly different'tasks.
Unfortunately, all too often those who can raise
money and get people excited, don't have a clue how
to govern day-to-day; and there are those individuals
one wonders why they ever chose to run for public
office in the first place, they are so secretive or with-
drawn from the people they serve.
So as you, the newly elected, retake, or take for the
first time, the oath of public office, prepare to be
adaptive. Be willing to learn new things and use more
than one perspective.
Remember, not a single one of you was drafted.
You wanted this job. That means we expect you to
work as hard as you promised.
Most important, remember that another way to say
mayor or city council member is public servant.,
We strongly believe that means open access, both to
ideas and to people.
Information and debate are the backbone of democ-
racy, after all, not things to be avoided or feared. Yes,
democracy is messy, cumbersome and frustrating, but
it beats a dictatorship anyday.
So please, don't dodge us, all of your constituents.
We are even more important after the election than
before.
Today's challenges face all of us, which is why we
have to work together. We have to identify our needs
and wants, prioritize projects and programs, and,
hardest of all, decide how much money we are willing
- to spend, while finding a fair way to divide up the
costs.
Progress can'thappen without community support,
and that means the entire community's support.
This can only be done with actions, not rhetoric.
The time has come, in other words, to follow
through on the sweepifig grand visions.
Enough with the adjectives, use short sentences
with action verbs and next to no pronouns. Be specif-
ic.
It is no longer enough, for example, to say that
enterprise zones must be self-supporting exactly
how are we to help them to be so?.Don't call for inno-
vation in general, tell us about specific innovations.
Don't talk about growth, show us how to grow.
Of course, we wish you all well. If you succeed, we


are the beneficiaries.
But we are also your partners, and
your equals, with a need to know.


as such, also


How to get back in gear


It comes about in this time
of the year, a slowing down
of life. I like to think it is
because of the weather. We
all want to curl up under-
neath the warm blankets for
five minutes longer. You
might think of it as savoring
in the moment. Yet, if you
are anything like me., it tends
to drip into the other parts of
your life as well. You tend to
put off things until later
moments or postpone that
pressing assignment a few
more minutes.
If you know me, you prob-
ably know that I am not the
type to wait to the last
minute. I typically do not
enjoy theextra stress that
this brings into my life. I like
to get the assignment or task
done as soon as I know about
it. Yet, it seems like the cool-
er weather brings in a sense
of postponement for me as
well. Maybe it is just the ide-
ological view that life should
slow down a bit to soak in its
goodness, but either way it is
catching up to me.
So, in order to provide a
bit of advice and perhaps
even more humor, I have
decided to list the various
ways that I try to put myself
back into gear. Maybe it will
aid you, maybe it will just
make you laugh at my own
being. Either way, with any

hope, it will place a smile on
your face.
Sometimes I start off by
giving myself little incen-
tives for doing the work. I
will promise myself a tasty
sweet treat, perhaps a cookie.
Yet, I have found that the
major problem with this idea
is the fact that I give it to
myself before I begin the.
activity. I keep thinking that
the little extra sugar might
kick me into gear.
Another avenue that I try
to take is that exactly.
'During the additional few
moments that I have going
from one place to the next, I
will take a road that I do not
know about. Although most
of the time it does eventually
get me to the location I was
desiring, but sometimes I end
up backtracking my steps.

Laws regulating conduct on
campus need updating
Editor:
It is indeed good that the sheriff's depart-
ment created the Critical Incident Response
Plan; all public schools desperately need such
a program. Right here in Highlands County
several students were severely brutalized and
traumatized with little follow-up.
The recent incidents elsewhere clearly '
mandate that measures be taken to protect all
students, especially the vulnerable ones and
especially in this day and time. History shows
that the basis for these terrible acts begins in
the home, not in the school; yet, our society
expects the schools to resolve these serious
problems.
, It is also known that the bullied can and do
become bullies, so the effort by the sheriff's
department is only one part
of the need to protect the
vulnerable. Domestic vio-
lence is another serious mal-
ady in our society, but we h
are slow in addressing it. I
How many spouses have to

accountable and their victims the
safe from them? Our stu-
dents need a safe and posi- NADINE
tive environment in which to
learn and become productive ACLUre
citizens. At least there they
would have peace of mind.
An effort has been made for over two years
to urge the state legislature to update the laws
that regulate conduct on school campuses.
The current laws simply do not address the
violations and crimes committed on campus.
Two critical issues pervading our schools are
bullying and truancy. '(Truancy is one signifi-
cant consequence of bullying). Those laws do
not require timely and efficient procedures to
address noted violations, etc.; and they do not
establish and regulate appropriate penalties.
The Florida State Legislature needs to
update those laws; they also need to be prod-
ded by every parent and every civic, social
and religious organization in this state that
serve our youth to demonstrate the urgency of
such action. It is tragic enough that our
schools have to be surrogate families for
many'students.

Behind closed doors
Editor:
America is heading down the road towards
world government, a world without borders.
We are almost there. Most all of our public
officials are promoting it behind closed doors
with secret meetings. They claim they know
best. Those in both parties running for public
office in 2008 are promoting open borders

sl


and the use of many languages and world
government with no borders.
They plan on giving all illegals, foreign
nationals from all over the world, citizenship
and the right to vote. A voice in American
government. A voice the American working
class do not have.
We have been sold out by this two-party
system, the manufacturing base, which con-
trols this two-party system that has used the
American tax dollar to relocate all over the
world, to violate our trade policies and our
constitution, to completely ignore the will of
the people.
People who cannot communicate due to
different languages are more easily con-
trolled. Look at the European Common
Market.
A world where the elite control and there is
no voice for the people. The American dream
of liberty and justice for all
will just be a dream and not
reality. There will be justice
only for those who can pay.
The two-party system is
first not working for the
S. American working class,
site for there is a great need for a

gyor voice to the working class.
knowing In 2008 the American
working class should elect
n/. 'the Independent Party to rep-
resent them and the values of
America and "not world gov-
TROSSEN ernment."
dent, 2005 Most all American voters
would vote for such a person
in 2008. Our sovereignty as a
nation is at stake in the 2008 election.
Our 2008 election may well be flawed
before we vote. Both parties are pandering
and promoting illegals to vote, as they have
in past elections.
We need a third party, a party that puts the
American constitution and its laws back in
the forefront, where our laws are enforced.
A nation where our justice system does not
promote illegals and foreign nationals, allow-
ing them to march in our streets demanding
citizenship, "bypassing" our immigration
laws. They have violated our laws and then
expect to receive citizenship as a reward.
They should go directly to jail for violating
our borders; just as they would in other
nations.
The new Pledge of Allegiance signed on to
by our two-party system:
I pledge allegiance to the flags of all
nations of the world and to all nations; "free
or not," for which they stand, All nations,
under many different Gods, with many differ-
ent laws and languages, with liberty and jus-
tice for those who can pay for it.
None of the front runners for the presiden-
cy are speaking on the sovereignty of the
United States government and enforcing our
immigration and trade policies.

A smell of a


good time

I open the door to my
room. It smells. No, wait ...
no, actually that is me. I
dump my stuff on the floor.
It is finally over. I feel the
ache in my neck, my back,
shoulders. My feet step light-
ly, not wanting to disturb the
newly made blisters.
Open up my bag and dump
out everything. Give a good
smell to the stuff that didn't
get worn and decide it
,should all be washed any-
way. It has been tainted by
the company it kept.
Slowly, I take off my-flan-
nel shirt. It smells like
smoke. The smell brings
back the nights before.
Sitting around a campfire-in
the middle of the'woods. You
know, why is it always the
middle of the woods? On
second thought we were
probably in the two-thirds of
the woods.
There we are, a bunch of
stinky back-packers who
can't smell each other. In our
midst there are experienced
hikers, people who have
gone enough to at least know
what to expect, and those
who haven't a clue.
Stories of previous trips
are passed around.
.: "Remember that time,!.
when we wetr initheei ..
Smokeys and thosetwo:red-
necks had bought everything
from Bass Pro Shop and
couldn't shut up about it?"
"Remember how it snowed
all night and we tramped
down the mountain like hob-
bits?"
"Remember how you ran
the whole rest of the way
when I said we could go to
Olive Garden if we got to the
car in time?"
"Remember how we ate all
the bread sticks 10 seconds
after the waiter put the bas-
ket on the table?"
"Remember how fast he
got us our food, hoping we
would get our stanky selves
out of there?"
After a while, the conver-
sation turns to politics, then
religion, then there is a
strange conversation about
the legitimacy of Star Trek
and the absolute lies of Star
Wars. Weird things are talked
about out in the two-thirds of
the woods. You say things in
the dark around the fire that
you wouldn't say at the
table. But it's all a big joke.
Back in my room I peel of
my T-shirt and give it a sniff.
It is heavily perfumed with
sweat and food. The sweat
was hard come by; earned on
miles of trail. Sometimes
walking slow. Sometimes
pushing the pace for not
much reason other than to
just do it. Sometimes run-
ning for the sheer joy of
being able to. Sucking in the
thrill of being perilously

Memories of an American schoolboy during World War II


Watching Ken Burn's epic called "The
War," a lot of old memories broke loose
and motivated me to write my own recol-
lections of life during that war, my mem-
ories of growing up as a schoolboy dur-
ing those years as my personal chronicle.
This is part two.

Most of the people in the neighbor-
hood had family in service. We all had
little flags in our windows, which had a
blue star for every family member in
service. Occasionally the color of the
star was changed to gold and a respect-
ful silence would attach to the signifi-
cance of the change. One of my class-


Guest
Column

mates announced that his brother had
been killed at Anzio, Italy. Thirteen
years old, we were unfamiliar with grief
and the protocols for communication of
compassion and regrets. We said nothing
but avoided him as if his grief was a
contagious malady that we wished to
avoid.
There was also a custom of hanging
large flags, some several stories high,
which were hung across side streets or


in the courtyards of tall buildings. These
usually had pictures of soldiers, or air-
craft, or tanks and indicated the number
of men in service from that particular
locale or building. I have tried, without
success, to see if anyone kept a photo-
graphic record of these flags, which
were displayed all over the city.
As soon as I was old enough, 12-13 I
think, I joined a local cadet organization
called "Calvary Battalion." It had a dis-
tinguished history and during World War
I, it's senior company was absorbed, en
masse, into the U.S. Army and sent to

France intact as a military
police unit. We were famous
for precision of our drill and
practiced weekly in a church
basement. Later the church
ejected us, and we moved to
the Kingsbridge Armory. We
wore khaki uniforms similar
to the GI's and carried
German Mauszer Model 98
rifles, knew the manual of
arms and general orders to
sentries and thought we were
pretty hot stuff.
Summer camp was two
weeks in tents in Tenafly,
N.J., and we trained seriously
as young soldiers. We arrived
in Tenafly by train at about
10 p.m. What followed was a
three-hour march with full
packs along a highway until
we reached the camp. We
slept on the ground inside
large 10-man squad tents.
Drilling was serious with
bayonet instruction and long
daily marches. It. really gave
us a taste of what GI training
would be like. As our senior
guys came of age they usual-
ly joined the Marine Corps
and were made corporals
right out of boot camp.
One Sunday afternoon
Mom took me to visit one of
Dad's friends, a member of
his veteran's organization
and had been one of the
Calvary Battalion kids who
had been activated with the
Battalion in World War I. He
had another visitor, a young
Air Corps pilot, looking
exceedingly sharp in his
olive green blouse and sky
blue trousers, silver wings on
his chest.
Trying to impress him I
told him I was anxious to
serve and couldn't wait till I
was old enough to enlist.
What followed was like get-
ting a bucket of ice water
thrown in your face. He told
me, "Look sonny, this is
deadly serious business and
men are being killed every.

nic and don't be too eager to
. get involved.. 7 ; ., I.
I apologized and felt duly
chastised. I actually felt like
I had been kicked in the head
and I was too embarrassed to
say anything more.
It was a long time before I
realized what a service this
man had done for me. He had
knocked the starry-eyed
Hollywood illusions out of
my head and rubbed my
smart alec young face in the
bloody reality of what war
was about. I think I still had
the volunteer spirit, some-
what inspired by my father's
action, but I realized it was a
serious, deadly commitment
when made, not a movie .
beau geste. I was beginning
to grow up.
I later learned that this
young pilot, a B-24 bomber
pilot did not survive the war
and I think his message to
me was something of a
prophesy about his own lim-
ited longevity..
I remember rationing was
quite extensive and usually
tolerated without complaint.
A trip to the A&P for food
stuffs had to be accompanied
by our ration books and the
clerks were required to col-
lect the appropriate amount
of ration stamps (red for
meat and blue for the rest) as
well as payment. Other
rationed items included shoes
and certain items of clothing.
Gasoline and tires were
rationed as well, but as sub-
way riders these were not
within our levels of concern.
I remember when I turned
14 I was entitled to a ration
stamp for coffee. Mom was
delighted, but I was not per-
mitted the beverage.


him from the other one, the
tall one. Grandpa had once
served as a barber in an
Austrian Cavalry Regiment
and this apparently imbued
him with the military savvy
of a Von Clauswitz. I would
usually find him seated at his
little kitchen table, a sugar
cube on his tongue, sipping
black coffee, while perusing
his battle maps, which he had
but recently removed from
the war news sections of sev-
eral newspapers. As his
favorite grandson he would
confide his battle tactics to
me and in all fairness he had
stopped the Germans at
Stalingrad, clobbered
Rommel at El Alemain and
managed several successful
landings in Sicily and Anzio.
Not bad for a retired barber
and house painter but then
those old cavalry men had it
in spades.
Grandpa would lean over
his map and show me the
point where he thought the
next breakthrough should
occur and often he was-cor-
rect. My grandpa, he should
have taught at West Point,
yet here he was in this crum-
my little apartment on
Simpson Street managing the
course of the war. I really
loved him, he was a. sweet
decent old man and when he
finally left us I had a hole
that took years to fill.
During those years Dad
was overseas and Mom
received a small allotment.
She worked as a sales clerk
in Bloomingdale's
Department store in
Manhattan. My brother and I
were latchkey kids but the
neighbors kept a weather eye
out for us. Thursday Mom
worked late and we had a 15-
cent vegetable dinner at the
local diner where the owner
gave us extra bread because
our father was in the Navy.
Just prior to the Normandy
landings, Dad's station was
hammered daily by. buzz
bombs (V-l) and rockets (V-
2). Older than most, he
cracked under the pressure of
the attacks and was evacuat-
ed, returning to the United
States on a hospital ship.
What is now called Post
Traumatic Distress
Syndrome, was then called
combat fatigue and was nei-
ther well understood nor
appropriately tolerated. He
was separated under honor-
able circumstances on what
was then called a section 8,
and was thereby branded as
undependable. The police
department would only
accept him back for limited
duty.
I remember his return from
Norfolk. Mom sent me and
my brother to summer camp,
and she took the train to
Norfolk. When I returned
from camp, Mom and Dad
were waiting at the ferry
landingin Manhattan. He
was in uniform, sporting his
ribbons, looking very salty
but he had gone completely
gray. I remember a wordless
embrace and'I refused to let
go of him. Even now, as I
write these lines, I have tears
that accompany the recollec-
tion.
Dad was then a radioman
first class, but the two hash
marks on his sleeve, desig-
nating eight years of prior
service, separated him from
the ordinary. He had more
than served his time. For the
rest of the war we readjusted
with Dad's return. Things
\ had not returned to normal
however, we were all
changed. Uncomfortable with
limited duty as a policeman,
Dad took early retirement
and at war's end we moved
to Arizona.


MURPHY
Continued from 10A
Either way, I am also
impressed by the new scenes
that I see. I love looking at
the older houses I haven't
viewed before, enchanted
roads that are covered by the
branches of trees, or the
wind dancing on the water.
Needless to say, it certainly
does a much for my imagina-
tion.
A strategy that I count on
as wells to change up my
location to do the work.. If I
find that nothing productive
is getting done at my current
location, I like to up and
move it. Sometimes it is just
moving it a few feet. Other
times I like to move to
another room. Yet, desperate
times call for desperate
measures. At certain times, I
even up and move complete
physical. locations. My
favorite thing to do here
recently is to frequent a local
coffee shop. It puts a little
smile on my face as I write
or work as I hear music from
local bands play with a lively
tone in the background.
I guess it does not matter
what I do to get it done, but
that I actually get it done. At
times it means that I must
play into my imagination;
other times it is to give into
my exploration side. Either
way, I have realized that I
must see the work not as
that, but as an enjoyable
project to complete.

SEBRING RECREATION CLUB
Chapman Chamberlin

SEBRING Shuffleboard,
cards, line dancing table ten-
nis, crafts, live entertainment
and eating sums up the
Recreation Club. A member
can do any or even all at the
club. Not only will you learn
but also make a new friend or
two. Have fun with your learn-
ing of a new game. If you
already do these, you can have
fun with us. You may play
shuffleboard in a park and
compete within the park.
Why not come to learn shuf-
fleboard tournament play? You
may find" this to your liking
and want to pursue tourna-
merits. You will become a
member of Florida


Shuffleboard Association
when you become a club mem-
ber. This will pave your way to
tournaments. You will be
shooting with Jim Monday,
Ralph Day, Don Rohman and

who are still both looking for
friends to shuffle with. Ladies

What are alternative tools of mass restructuring, and why are they important?


E This is a continuing
series
What are these special
alternative tools of mass
.restructuring and what is
their importance towards giv-
ing us a healthier life? From
newer supplements, to
herbals, to homeopathic med-
icine, to "right out of your
fridge" foods, and to our
grandparents and their good
ole common sense foods, we
have for our future a much
better opportunity to take
advantage of these wonderful
tools. We can then live a
longer and much healthier
life.
TV viewing and maga-
zine/newspaper ads make the
erroneous claim that'age and
disease goes together, an
inevitable part of growing
older. The claims mostly are
about symptom control, not
prevention. Not all doctors
fortunately will say to their
elderly patient "take these
pills, you'll feel better;" to


those doctors, "sen-
ior equals symp-
toms." It also is a
fluke to the doctors.
that their patient,
on his/her own,
uses diet, exercise
or supplements to
reverse a health
condition. It is sad Nag
that many physi- W l
cians completely Wel
ignore holistic Jou
health. It could Ray
enlarge their prac-
tice without any
question. My personal doc-
tors do take advantage.
Baby Boomers, 72 million
in all, are changing the
almost 19th century approach
to the medical world treat-
ments. They go to gyms, eat
lean foods, use heavenly
nutritional supplements,
along with their conviction to
maintain the vim and vigor
of youth. They also have
helped build up the anti-
aging medicine approach for
a healthier life

Fi


Unbeknown to
many of them, in
S order to succeed in
S life, they become
overly ambitious
and are very
stressed out. Later
on, they find they
need medical help.
iral This generation
constantly seeks the
less natural health wise-
ney ly.
isch Mayo Clinic has
seen recently seen
successful real-life
stories: The worst case of
leukemia in 20 years, now
healthy; a woman with dia-
betes, who was able to get
off insulin in six weeks; and
an almost 100 percent solu-
tion from a pain killer to help
with severe arthritis.
There is an Asian herb that
solves most heart problems; a
new herb that wipes out
prostate tumors, plus a natu-
ral way of controlling your
bladder. Cures do exist for
cancer. If your immune sys-


-tem is healthy there is a bio-
chemical from a group of
mushroom extracts that is so
powerful that it increases
your immune system activity
by 300 percent, and helps
your own natural killer cells
by penetrating and killing
your cancer cells. Your body
can heal itself.
The first herb, fenugreek,

then cinnamon extract, a
small spoonful or capsule -
and a few others to discuss
later they also help your
cholesterol. For those with
heart disease, there is an
Ayervedic heart remedy from
India, that also lowers blood
pressure. Nattokinase, or
"Natto" the powerful clot
buster, can be used rather
than aspirin for heart and
angina problems.
Asthma, allergies, pain,

tion arthritis, and fatigue to
name a few, will be covered
in future articles. Many of

UDC holds

meeting

By ELIZABETH WALKER
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID The
United Daughters of the
Confederacy Captain John
Wesley Whidden Chapter met
recently in the Heartland
National Bank in Lake Placid.
In her presentation of the
minutes of the last meeting,
UDC President Betty Ray
Roberts announced that two
new members had joined at
that time, Nancy Ranck and
Georgia Holland. Georgia and
Carolyn Hargrove are helping
Mike to implement the Dewey
Decimal System in the
Genealogy Department in the
Lake Placid Memorial
Library.
Carolyn Hargrove acquired
DeSoto County Marriage
Records Volumes I And II
from the Arcadia Daughters.of
the Revolution chapter to add
to the UDC collection. The
volumes cover years from the
beginning of DeSoto County
(1887). DeSoto County was
created in 1887 from Manatee
County.
June Cline delivered
genealogy record donated by
Phyllis Bielanski. The dona-
tion consists of copies of the
Ancestors and Descendents of
William Blake from 1636 by
Frederick Weir, and the
Descendents of Samuel
Blakesly of New Haven,
Conn., by James Shepherd.
Nell Gammage displayed a
very old copy of the
Confederate Constitution that
was donated by former UDC
Charter Member, Addie Kaye
Owens, who died in 2006.
Due to the condition and color
of the -pages, -Gammage
believes it to be a very old and
valuable edition.
Members decided to hold
the next UDC meeting at 10
a.m. on Monday, Nov. 26 in
the meeting room bf the
Heartland National Bank in
SLake Placid.

Girl Scouts looking


Sfor local volunteers


Special to the News-Supi
HIGHLANDS COUNTY
- It's not too late for girls to
join Girl Scouts or for adults
to volunteer.
Girl Scouting offers girls
many opportunities to discov-
er their strengths, connect
with others to explore the
world, and to take action to
make the world a better place
- while having fun and mak-
ing new friends.
However, for girls to bene-
fit from Girl Scouting, they
need the guidance of con-
cerned, caring adults.
Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast
Florida Inc. needs adult vol-
unteers to help deliver the
Girl Scout program and make
the difference in lives of girls.
Being 'a Girl Scout volun-
teer means sharing one's time
and talent as part of an organ-
ization that has helped girls
become competent and
resourceful citizens for 95
years.
There are various opportu-
nities with flexible options
and hands-on training is pro-
vided to all volunteers.
Volunteers may work directly
with girls throughout the year
or lend their expertise for a
specific short-term project or
event.
Girl Scout troop leaders are


needed most urgently, howev-
er, other volunteer positions
are available: trainer/work-
shop coordinator, translator,
driver, first aider, chaperone,
event director, fundraiser,
nature consultant, guest
speaker, cultural awareness
instructor, mentor/advisor
(especially to help girls with
specific badge requirements).
Girl Scouting is open to
volunteers, both women and
men, who are over the age of
18, who make the Girl Scout
Promise, accept the Girl
Scout Law, and pay the $10
annual membership dues.
Because the organization
believes that female role
models are especially impor-
tant to young girls during
their formative years, men
working directly with girls
are asked to serve as part of a
leadership team that includes
women.
For information or to vol-
unteer, call Peggy Becerra at
446-0571.
Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast
Florida, Inc. is chartered by
Girl Scouts of the USA and
serves more than 10,000 girls
in Highlands, Hardee,
Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto,
Glades, Hendry, Lee,
Manatee, and Sarasota coun-
ties.


Clubs Snapshots


TOPS Club 632
SEBRING TOPS Club meets
every Monday at First Baptist Church
of Lake Josephine. Weigh-in begins at
2:30 p.m. and ends. at 3:20,p.m. The
meeting begins at 3:30 p.m. and is
approximately one hour long. For more
information, contact Judy O'Boyle at
699-2986.
The meeting was called to order by
leader Judy O'Boyle. She welcomed.
visitors to the annual open house.
Today was not scheduled to be a "reg-


ular" meeting; it was to provide infor-
mation to all of the guests about Tops.
Members saluted the flag and then the
Tops and Kops pledges were said by all
members. There were a lot of visitors
who came to learn about Tops today
and they were welcomed gladly.
The room was beautifully decorated
and there was a program book at each
place setting for members and guests
containing the schedule, committee's
names, words to the songs and the Tops
and Kops pledges. Lil McNeeley had


done a marvelous job with the pro-
grams.
O'Boyle began the program by intro-
ducing three different women, all
enacted by Betty Roulette. Members
were treated to three different scenarios:
that were amusing and also brought
Tops' message out to all. After the skit,
two songs were sung by the entire
group and then James Butts, 2006 State
King, spoke to the group. He told
members a little of his journey from
"Big Man" to Kops and shared some of


his secrets for both weight loss and
maintaining that loss. After Butts
talked, members were entertained by
Carolyn Ryder, who came out dressed
as a country western singer and belted
out a top song, country style.
After the program members all
enjoyed the food, much of it low-calo-
rie, with recipes provided by the
donors. Tops 'members are allowed two
food functions per year and today was
one of them.

High School Boys Soccer


Green Dragons take Hardee to limit


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID There
are such things as moral vic-
tories. But getting a coach
worth his salt to admit to one
isn't always the easiest thing.
But the Lake Placid boys
soccer team's season-opening
1-0 loss to visiting Hardee
might very well qualify as
one.
"I guess it's as much of
one as a loss can be," head
coach Joshua Virkler said.
Coming off a 3-13 season
and facing .a Wildcat squad
that went 14-1-3 a year ago to
open this season, the Green
Dragons seemed to be facing
quite a daunting task.
But up to the task they
were, with 13 seniors back
from last years' team giving
them some much-valued
experience, not to mention
ability.
And those two traits were
evident as they battled their
way to a scoreless first half,
matching Hardee step for

kick with less than two minutes to go that got Hardee the load goal of the game in the
Wildcat win.


step and, in fact, seeming to
have control of the ball quite
a bit more.
Lake Placid goalkeeper
Omar Villeda really didn't
have many tough 'save
chances in the first forty min-


utes, save for one.
On a shot that took Villeda
off to the side of the net, his
deflection rebounded back in
front of the goal, sitting a
precarious matter of feet
from a Wildcat score.


But defenseman Daniel
Flores came in for the rescue,
sliding and kicking it back
out and into Dragon posses-
sion.
The second half played out

Sports world a wild


one these days


Things seem to be going
haywire throughout the
sporting world.
The parity of the NFL is
being evidenced by some
weird looking standings, and
yet the two recent behe-
moths, New England and
Indianapolis are still head
and shoulders above every-
one else.
The #1 ranking in NCAA
football has been a curse to
anyone who's had it heck
any ranking has been like a
curse as week to week the
rankings change more than I
change my socks.
Boston is the new "Sports
Town USA" with the Red
Sox being World Series
champs and the Patriots
looking like world beaters.
The Celtics are off to a hot
start with their new big three
and Boston College recently
were as high as #2 in the
BCS rankings before they,
like every other team, took a
loss and a tumble down to
#8.
And now New York is tak-
ing a tumble.
The Knicks are chaos, the
Mets collapsed, the Jets stink
and the Yankees might be
primed for a drop-off.
They lost Joe Torre, and
likely will be losing Alex
Rodriguez, Roger Clemens.
There's even some doubt
about Mariano Rivera and
Jorge Posada coming back.
And consider this bit of'
irony Torre grew up in
New York as a Giants fan
(when they made the Big
Apple home).
By having .coached the
Yankees and now the
Dodgers, Torre will now
have been the head honcho
for each of the Giants
biggest rivals during his
childhood.
Onto the NFL coming
into the season, would any-
one have predicted the
Packers and Lions to be
leading the NFC North?


Ana Anotner
Thing...
Dan Hoehne


Not only that, they are
both considered among the
best five teams in the NFC.
Defending conference
champion Chicago has fallen
off the map and are soon
going to be the least-relavent
team in their division.
That's because, despite
having the same record as
them, the Vikings are
becoming more noteworthy,
what with rookie running
back Adrian Peterson's
breakout season.
I was steamed a few years
ago when Corey Dillon ini-
tially broke Walter Payton's
single-game rushing record
(just as I was when Emmitt
Smith overtook his career
rushing record).
I was seven years-old
when Payton began his pro
career and being a huge fan
of his while growing up is an
understatement.
I don't think even Michael
Jordan is as beloved in
Chicago as the late Payton is
still adored.
Perhaps only Ernie Banks
rivals him in endearing the
city's fans.
Anyway, so with my bias,
and knowing that Payton had
set the record of 275 yards
against a tough Viking team,
with crummy field condi-
tions, on 40 carries, it irked
me that Dillon had broken it
with far less carries, mean-
ing it was done against an

IRONY
Continued from 1D
inferior defense.
With Peterson breaking
Dillon's mark, on 3d carries for
his 296 yards, at least it kind of
returns the record back to our
division and to the team that
Payton set it against.
Kind of ironic.,
The Heisman race is just as
odd.
Usually,'by this point in the
season the host of pre-season
hopefuls have been whittled
down to a handful, and those
are the guys that we know it
will come from.
But just as the team rankings
keep shifting around, so does
the search for anyone worthy of
the Heisman.
USC's John David Booty
was an early favorite, along
with Arkansas running back
Darren McFadden and


Michigan's Michael Hart.
But with each of them, and
their team's, having some tough
times this year, the door is wide
open to anyone who has a good
game or two.
Gator quarterback Tim
Tebow is still among those
being considered and
McFadden is gaining some
ground with some strong games
recently, but now suddenly
Dennis Dixon, Oregon's quar-
terback, has come out of
nowhere to be the favorite.
I'd be curious if some of the
'experts' now picking him had
even heard of him before the
season.
Then again, even
Nostradamus would have a
hard time predicting anything
in sports these days.

STREAKS
Continued from 1D

LaBelle was able to tie the
game at 16-16 with a free
throw from Gunsby at 3:42.
Sebring's offense got busy
and the outscored the visitors
11-8 the rest of the quarter
giving the home team held a
27-24 lead at halftime.
Shoop had eight points in
the third quarter and Sebring
moved out to a 35-30 advan-
tage at the third h'orn.
The Streaks then pushed
their lead to 42-33 with 5:11
to play 'in the fourth, but
LaBelle rallied.
Ramos scored eight con-
secutive points to cap a ,12-2
spurt and take a 46-44 lead
with 1:48 to play.
Lee hit a 14-foot jumper
and drew a foul at the 1:33
mark, but she could not com-
plete the three-point play.
Ramos missed a three-
pointer at the other end to set
up Davis' winning shot.
"I think our effort was good
tonight, Lee said. "LaBelle-
was quick. They are a very
good team."
Lee is also expecting his
Lady Streaks to be a very
good team.
Sebring is coming off back-
to-back district champi-
onships and they have also
gone undefeated in their regu-
lar season schedule for two
years straight.
"This is a good group of
girls," Lee said. "They work
hard. We're going to give it a
good run."
Lee is in his first year as the


Lady Streaks head coach, he
served as assistant coach and
junior varsity coach under
Robert Sampson for two
years.
Lee's daughter Whitney
was the Streaks' leading scor-
er last year.
The senior averaged 15
points per game from the
shooting guard spot.
Shoop, a 5-foot-11 junior,
averaged 10 points per game
and 10 rebounds per game last
year.
She will be joined in the
post by Whitney Wells, a 5-
foot-11 senior.
Sophomore Shwonda
Holdman will also play power
forward and center as will
junior Max Copley.
Davis will play the small
forward spot for the Streaks
while junior Priscilla Adams
and senior Alyssa Martino are
also swing players who will
split time between guard and
forward.
Senior Brenita Grant is
back to handle the point
guard spot.
McCollors with 10 points
off the bench Tuesday will see
plenty of action at guard.
Sophomore Zykeria Dawkins
and junior ToniAnn Dallas are
also in the guard rotation
"We've got depth and expe-
rience," Lee said. "This sen-
ior group of girls hasn't lost
more than a handful of games
in their time at Sebring High
School. This is a group that is
used to winning."
The Lady Streaks will be
looking to make the district
title a three-peat in February
of 2008.


News-Sun photo by SCOTT DRESSEL
Whitney Lee, who led Sebring with 13 points Tuesday,. will
be relied on for her potent scoring touch this season.


But next at hand is a
matchup to close out the Pre-


Season Classic Thursday
night against Cocoa.

Lake Placid, meanwhile,
seemed forever on the attack,
getting the ball deep into the
Wildcat zone but just not able

Virkler said. "You can lose a
game when you should have
won and you can win a game
