Christmas spirit already

shining in Highlands

The local holiday season officially kicked off
this week, with the Avon Park Christmas
parade on Monday night followed by the
'Festival of Lights at Florida Hospital
Heartland Division opening Tuesday night.
The parade entertained thousands of
'people, especially the kids (above) when
one of the fire engines in the lineup let
loose with a blast from its horn. The eighth
annual Festival.of Lights (right) also drew a
large crowd to the first night of what has
become a Highlands County tradition. The
lights will be on every night until 10 p.m.
throughout the holiday season.

Downtown CRA may find a second life with Chamber


News-Sun staff report
AVON PARK The Avon Park
Downtown Community Redevelopment
Agency discussed options in their final
planned meeting after voting dissolve earlier
this month.
One of the suggestions was a possible
merger with the Avon Park Chamber of
Commerce, making the board a sub-commit-
tee.
"We really want to serve," board chairman
Devon Donaldson said. "But we think it is
ridiculous for applicants to have to come to
our board then wait a month and approach
another board that may tell them no."


Board voted to dissolve
itself at last meeting

After a short discussion, the board decided
to send a recommendation to the city council,
which sits as the main CRA board, to look at
options, including combining with the Avon
Park Chamber of Commerce.
"The community needs this board in order
to communicate this district's needs to the
city; if you disband, then there is no one to
pass that information along," Chamber
Executive Director David Greenslade said.


"Maybe it would be better to work togeth-
er with each other than disband. What we
really need is better communications
between each group in the community and
the city council," Greenslade added when he
appealed to the CRA to re-think the position.
"I won't have an objection to a new direc-
tion as long as facade grant applicants do not
have to jump through so many silly hoops,"
CRA board member Ed Baldridge said.
"It's not a question of serving," Baldridge
clarified, "but of having a level of bureaucra-
cy the'public does not need."'

HCSO checking


leads in murder


investigation
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun .corn
SEBRING The investigation into the
death of 82 year-old Samuel Tiller is under
way after the death was ruled a homicide.
Highlands County Sheriffs officials continue
to follow numerous leads in an attempt to find
the person or persons responsible for what a
press release called a "deliberate act of vio-
lence:"
After Sunday's autopsy in Polk County, the
medical examiner confirmed a gunshot wound
was the cause of,death. Tiller was shot in his
home in the-Sebring Courtry Estates, located
behind Wal-Mart.
On Monday, detectives learned that a few
residents in the area were visited by suspicious
persons trying to sell products door to door in
the area over the last week, a press release stat-
ed.
Detectives ask that anyone who may have
been approached by such persons to call and
provide any detail that can be recalled.
Sheriff's Office staff will be sending out a
reverse 911 call to the neighborhoods around
Falcon Avenue in Sebring seeking any infor-
,mation on suspicious activity in the area.
According to neighbors, Tiller and his wife
only returned to Sebring from their summer
home in the 1.is mouth They recalled the cou-
ple's home being broken into several years ago

Local man finds himself in Ken Burns documentary


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING When Howard
Thompson sat down last month to
watch "The War," Ken Burns' World
War II documentary, he expected to see
and hear from those who were there.
He didn't expect to see himself.
About an hour into "When Things
Get Tough," the second segment of the
seven-part series,, a picture appeared
featuring a young Thompson, his older
brother James, and his brother-in-law
William Simpson, who was serving in
the Navy at the time.

Picture of himself, brother
and brother-in law showed
up in episode of 'The War'

One month after unexpectedly:seeing
himself on PBS, Thompson, 78, is still
amazed at what happened.
"What are the chances of your pic-
ture being on TV like that?" Thompson
asked. "I was just spellbound. I had to
run into the other room and tell my
wife, because she doesn't like war pic-
tures."
"When Things Get Tough" tells the


story of four towns -Mobile, Ala.;
Sacramento, Calif.; Waterbury, Conn.;
and Luverne, Minn. and how they
each dealt with the war. It was during
the Luverne segment that Thompson's
picture appeared, which was even more
surprising considering he grew up in
Dayton, Ohio.
Thompson thinks his mother sent the
picture to her sister, who lived in
Luverne, and when pictures were being
collected for the film, Thompson's pic-
ture was collected with the rest. He

Teen charged with stealing

safe containing $30,000

SEBRING A sheltered
strongbox stored indoors and
considered secret was no
challenge for a teen who
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office investigators say took
the safe, sacked its contents
and set off on a shopping
spree.
The safe contained an esti-
mated $30,000. A lap-
top computer was also
missing on Nov. 17
when the victim
reported the crime at
her Sebring home. -
The suspect, 18-
year-old Aaron M
Man
Mangum, allegedly
obtained the house key from
the victim's daughter after he
drove her to a college class.
The HCSO report stated
Mangum entered the house
via the back door and walked
up the stairs, found the safe,
and dragged it from the vic-
tim's bedroom to his 2000
Dodge Neon outside. While
inside Mangum also took
some clothing.
Paranoia set in when'
Mangum discovered the lap-
top contained tracking soft-
ware, so he gave the stolen
device to a friend for "safe

ing the friend sold the 'device,

The safe contained a large
sum of cash divided up in
bank envelopes.
Mangum allegedly took the
money and distributed it to
several of his family mem-
bers, telling them it was sev-
erance pay from his military
service. According to the
arrest report, he is a fueler for
Sthe Army National
Guard.
The report said he
used the remaining
money to buy laptop
computers, iPods, and
"several improve-

Mangum, who
reportedly confessed the
crime to the victim and also to
deputies, was arrested and
charged with two counts of
burglary and two counts of
theft one for theft less than
$5,000 for the laptop and one
for theft between $20,000 and
$100,000 for the safe and its
contents.
Several items bought with
the stolen money and
$4,890.22 in cash were recov-
ered, the report said.
Mangum is free on $12,000

"I agree," Donaldson said.
"It is a waste of everyone's

Why have people go through
that just to be told no later

Board member John Perry

sion, but voted to make the
recommendation to the city
council.

said.

for the documentary, but he believes it
was taken when he was 12 years old.
"I said to myself, 'I wasn't in the
service, so how'd I get my face in a
war picture?" he said.
Thompson came of draft age during
the onset of the Korean War and was
almost drafted into that conflict, but
he received a deferment because he
had just gotten married and had a,
child on the way when his number
came up.
Thompson moved to Sebring in
1990 after retiring as a machine
repairman at General Motors in
Dayton. He's always been interested
in working with his hands, as evi-
denced by the plane-shaped wind
gauge in his backyard made from
spare parts. He also used his talents to
fix houses in the Sebring Hills area to
rent and sell.
Now, Thompson teaches Sunday


school at his church and also does
Bible studies at the Last Chance
Ranch. He was also recognized by the
Modern Woodmen of America as a
Hometown Hero, an award earned for
his volunteer work in the area.
The documentary brought back
many memories for Thompson, who
was only a kid during the time of the
war. Like most others at that time, he
remembers getting the news on the
war from newsreels and the radio,
long before television war coverage
became a reality.
"I can remember sitting next to the
radio on Dec. 7" during the Pearl
Harbor attacks, Thompson said. It was
a time of sacrifice for the entire coun-
try, with rationing stamps for gasoline
anrd metal products, scrap drives for
metal that-could be used to make war
materials, and war bonds being sold to
help finance the war effort.
S"Everyone had to sacrifice," he said
of that time. The memories are part of
the reason why he still enjoys watch-
ing war movies and films to this day."


FIRE
Continued from 1A
Deputy Chief Mike Roberts said, recalling
reports from his men on the front line.
Lt. Michael Altman and Deputy Chief
Thomas Dunn were among the first members
of the SFD to arrive, with Altman among the
first to brave the fire.
"There was fire in the walls above us; real-
ly heavy smoke. It was hard to see. There
were visible flames all around," he recalled
after extinguishing the fire. "We entered
through the rear, pulled hose and started
knocking the fire down."
Dunn had nothing but compliments for his
firefighters' quick response to the site, which
allowed them to extinguish the fire before it
grew to consume more of the school.
"They did a good job locating the fire and
getting right on it," he said.
.Two 1,500-gallon-per-minute trucks and
the flagship 105-foot ladder truck were on
scene within minutes to ensure the school
only sustained minimal damage.
One witness said smoke covered the whole
building and it looked to her like an electri-
cal fire, but no cause has been determined

Group were vying for the
county's business. Originally,
the commissioners were sup-
posed to select the firm at
next week's meeting, but on a
motion by Commissioner C.
Guy Maxcy, they voted 4-1 to
hire Baenziger.
Jackson and Stewart held
out for Mercer Group initially
during paper polls among the
board.
Baenziger will charge the
county $21,500 for his servic-
es.
"That's the fee," he said.
"We're not going to ask for
more."
The commissioners have
expressed their desire to have
SCool's successor begin July 1.
Likewise, they've indicated a
citizen committee of up to 15
people would participate in
the hiring process.
Their method's are general-
ly the same for what each
described as a 60-90 day
process from when advertise-
ments are placed until a can-
didate is selected.


Working with the county
commissioners and the yet-to-
be-named citizen committee,
each firm would develop a"
recruitment profile to deter-
mine Highlands County's
unique characteristics and
expectations.
After the ads are placed,
each head hunter would use
his network to identify from
10 to 18 prospective candi-
dates, conducting on-site
interviews before bringing the
potential applicants to the
board to narrow the list.
"You guide us," said Sam
Trager of Slavin Management
Consultants, who promised an
"interactive style" by building
a relationship with the county
through meetings with staff,
commissioners and a hiring
committee.
He cautioned against a citi-
zen's panel participating in
weeding out candidates, not-
ing "horror" stories in which
members lacked discretion in
contacting current employers
and elected officials of
prospective applicants who


might be eliminated before
serious consideration as a
finalist.
Otherwise, Trager wel-
comed, citizen input in devel-
oping recruitment material
and participating in inter-
views.

Tom Freijo was the first to

If tears could build a stairway, and
memories a lane, we would walk right
up to Heaven and bring you back
again. No farewell words were spoken,
no time to say "Goodbye," you were
gone before we knew it, and only God
knows why. Our hearts still ache with
sadness, and secret tears still flow,
what it meant to love you, no one can
ever know. But now we know you
would want us, to mourn for you no
more, to remember all the happy times,
life still has much in store. Since you
will never be forgotten, we pledge to
you today, a hallowed place within our
hearts is where you'll always stay.
We love and miss you deeply.

Protection for both troops and civilian employer discussed


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING "We want to
make sure that the called-up
members of the National
Guard and the reservist- and
their employer are both pro-
tected," Donald Wallen
explained to members of the
South Central Florida Chapter
of the Military Officers
Association of America.
Wallen, chairman of the
Department. of Defense
Employer Support of the
Guard and Reserve for
Florida Area 13, recently
spoke at the monthly MOAA
luncheon at the Kenilworth
Lodge in Sebring.


A former Marine, Wallen is
a retired executive with Ryder
Systems now volunteers his
time to work with the employ-
ers and the military.
Pointing out the increased
role of the National Guard
and Reserve in the war
against worldwide terrorism,
the need for understanding
between the military and the
civilian employer is greater
than ever.
In counseling 'employers,
Wallen encourages them to
learn more about their
employee's Guard or Reserve
duties, their commanders and
to visit their unit while on


weekend training sessions.
It is extremely important
for the employee to keep the
employer apprised of training
schedules and to become
acquainted with their com-
manders, it was pointed out.
In many instances, Wallen
is called upon to mediate
between the employee and
employer and said that both
are important to the nation's
defense posture.
Following his presentation,
Wallen entertained questions
from the former military offi-
cers and their spouses.
"If any employer has ques-
tions concerning their obliga-


tions to their military, I will
be glad to meet and update
them on the rules," invited
Wallen.
Wallen was thanked by
MOAA member retired
Marine Corps Captain Dan
Fennell, Okeechobee, and
presented a small desk item
emblazoned with both the
Marine Corps and MOAA
emblems.

educated more than 1 million
people on the subject. She has
been featured on ABC's Good
Morning America, 20/20 and
NBC's The Today Show, as
well as many local news pro-
grams.
Welker successfully com-,
pleted a detailed education
course and passed a thorough


examination on preparing
homes for sale. Homes that
are Staged, or prepared for
sale, by an Accredited

Papa John's Pizza adds text

message ordering system


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING In the late
1960's consumers reveled at
the idea of picking up the
phone and having a pizza
delivered to the door.
Decades later, in 2001, Papa
John's made ordering pizza
even more convenient with
the introduction of online
ordering at www.papa
johns.com.
Today, Papa John's is lead-
ing the entire quick. service
restaurant industry across yet
another technology threshold
as the first national pizza
chain to offer text message
ordering.
Sound too good to be true?
"Just a few years ago, e-
mail was a revolutionary way
to keep in touch with'friends
and family and Papa John's
responded in-kind with online
ordering," said Jim Ensign,
vice-president, marketing
cofnmunications for Papa
John's International Inc.
"Now more than 48 percent of
mobile phone owners use text
messaging to communicate
with their friends and family
every day. And just as we did
with online ordering, Papa
John's is proud to take the
ease of text .message commu-
nications one step further
with our convenient text mes-
sage ordering option."
With 74 percent of
Americans age 18-34, using
their mobile phones for more
chatting, busy college stu-
dents cramming for finals can
now discreetly order a late-
night snack without violating
their library's "no-talking"
policy.
Text message ordering is a
simple four-step process:
1. Customers first register
online at www.papajohns.com
and save their favorite orders,
delivery and payment prefer-
ences with the Papa John's


"Favorites Wizard."
2. Once registered online,
the Papa John's consumer can
simply text FAV1, FAV2, etc.
to 4PAPA (47272).
3. Papa John's then sends a
text message detailing the
order and requesting confir-
mation from the consumer.
4.,The consumer presses
Y1 to confirm the order for
FAV1 or N1 to change the'
order. Once confirmed, the
closest Papa John's restaurant
processes the order.
Recently, hundreds of busy
holiday shoppers at the Mall
of America in Minneapolis
watched as Papa John's pitted
the World's Fastest Talker,
Fran Capo, against LG
National Texting Champion
Morgan Pozgar, to determine
what was faster ordering a
Papa John's pizza the old
fashioned way via phone. or
via text message.
Amid much suspense, 13-
year-old Pozgar was all
thumbs, emerging victorious
and leaving the fast-talking
Capo in her text message
dust. Mall of America shop-
pers then learned firsthand
how to text message their
order to Papa John's and 10
lucky people were randomly
selected to win a enV by LG
- designed specifically for
multimedia messaging with a
QWERTY keyboard and large
internal screen from LG
Mobile Phones.
"Text ordering a Papa
John's pizza was really easy,"

Killing

Since your kitchen dishcloth or sponge
can collect harmful bacteria, it's important
to sterilize it before each use. Usually, hot
tap water doesn't kill all the germs, so
try this simple sterilization trick:


Pop your damp, dirty sponge or dishcloth
into the microwave and set on full power
for about 30 seconds.

Then rinse with hot water and soap, and
you have a clean counter-wiping tool.

their own room, of having
friends over to show off their

It takes a family about two
years to complete their hours
so each hour that the children
can put in helps. They receive
one hour for each A and S on
their report card and a half
hour for each B.
They can earn up to 40

A chance to get some


health care answers

We want those of you interested in the subject of
who pays for health care in this country to be able to
take advantage of an opportunity that has come our
way.
Christopher Tuffley will be spending three days in
Washington, D.C., the first week of December,
attending a seminar at the Knight Center for
Specialized Journalism.
The reason this is of interest to the community is
that he will be briefed by experts in the health care

Let us sum up what we
learned in part one.
1. There are entirely too
many hair care choices on
the market.
2. Diamond dust and
champagne are by far the
best extract additives ever.
3. In the entire United
States of America, you can-
not find a hair spray, gel or
mousse with-a'strength less
Than strong.' ,
4. This out-of-control hair
market is taking lives!
OK, I want to admit some-
thing right away. At the end
of the last column I said that
if you go on the hair care
aisle without consulting my
second column that you had
a 98 percent chance df get-
ting small pox. That was a
lie. My lawyers said I needed
to retract that. Hah! Yeah
right, like I can afford
lawyers.
Last time, we really dove
into the nitty gritty, the grin-
and-bare-it cold hard facts
about the nightmare that is
the hair care world.'Now I
want to reveal some behind-
the-scenes things that you
may not know. Did you know
that the ColorTHRIVE for-
mula lasts five times longer*.
Ahhhh but what is that aster-
isk doing there. Well, I will
tell you. You only get that
"five times longer" of color
lastation *When using
ColorTHRIVE shampoo,
conditioner and color lock in
creme or spray vs. ordinary
shampoos and conditioner.
Here is.the real trick, I
looked and there is no ordi-
nary shampoo or conditioner!
So it lasts five times longer
when compared to something
that doesn't exist! Yeah that
is right, I uncovered that
story! Bam! Eat your heart
out Bobby Woodward!
Next news breaking story.
Aussie hair products think
they are funny. They try to'
make fun of the competition
with names like "Catch The
Wave Conditioner." Then
they come up with cutesy
descriptions like "Waves so
smooth it's like surfing the
Barrier Reef without the
threat of sharks." What the
heck does that even mean?
But the news isn't that
Aussie has stupid writers on
their staff.
Aussie hair products are
living a lie! They are and I
quote, "Distributed by/por
Redmond Products Inc. 301
East 6th Street, Cincinnati
OH."
OHIO! Can you get any
less Aussie than Cincinnati? I
submit that you cannot!

Dabbling
With Daniel
Daniel Bedell .,:,

And if that weren't bad
enough, the next line on the
bottle is enough to make you
never buy conditioner again.
"Made in USA of US
and/or imported ingredients."
Aussie, who sticks little pic-
tures of kangaroos on their
bottles and parades around as
Nichole Kidman's best
friend, is really made of
and/or imported ingredients.
It makes me sick!
These brands like
Aussie, Catwalk, Rusk, Kiwi,
American Crew, Bed Head,
Pure Logic, ABBA, Biosilk,
Biolace, Matrix, Got2B, Big
Sexy Hair, Curly Sexy Hair
and Straight Sexy Hair are
slowly but surely killing
America.
They are trying to sell you
separate products for mois-
turizing, fortifying, silkening,
repairing, protecting, detan-
gling, smoothing, restoring
and nourishing your hair.
Well, I hate to be the bearer
of bad news but silkening
isn't even a real word! They
are selling you lies that are
just a bunch of synonyms.
These companies are mak-
ing people like me spend
hours, useless, senseless,
horrible, painful hours on
hair-care aisles across the
country because we don't
have a freaking clue which is
better: Liqui Spray Gel with
"Intense Texture," or Shine
Spray with "UV Filters," or
Sleek and Shine with
"Nutritive Fruit Micro Oils."
And so we stand there dum-
founded in a sea of confusion
because no one explained the
benefits of wild cherry bark
extract over rose hips.
If you are a man like me,
caught slack jawed in your
local hair care aisle para-
lyzed by fear and confusion,
there is probably only one
answer, one savior for you.
A woman.
When I was doing my
research I saw three women
come by and in 10 seconds
figure out what product they
needed. I finally asked the
third how she chose. She told
me it was for her husband. I

The need to finish strong is


Here within a few weeks I will be
officially finished with school. It was
one of those things that I never saw
coming. Well, I take that? back. I knew
that it would come one day, but never
thought that day would come. Yet, now
as I sit here, I see that those 16 years of
my life certainly went by much quicker
than I ever thought.
I guess one might say I am a bit
relieved. My projects are all handed in,
the work is being completed, and there
are two weeks left of classes. Yet, there
is a need within my being; a need in
which it is difficult to explain in clear
terms. It is the desire of wanting to fin-
ish the task with all I have, to finish it
strong. Perhaps you know the feeling I
am talking about.
It is easy to slip into the wind-down
process and become side-tracked.
Seniors in high school often refer to it
as 'senioritis.' Although it is not a med-
ical condition, it is one in which the
person feels like the best medicine
would be that of relaxation and fun.


Murphy's
Law
Lindsey Murphy


One can easily slip into this condition,
especially as a senior in high school or
college. Yet, it is crucial that the person
stays focused until the very end.
I often like to think about it in senses
outside of the classroom context. What
if the custodian decided not to finish up
his last two hours each night? What if
the firefighter decided not to take the
call the last 30 minutes before his shift
ended? What if the police man decided
those last few minutes on duty were not


.. well, strong

all that important? Granted, a paper is
much different than those important
jobs. Nevertheless, it is important to
keep pushing forward until the very end
of the race.
Ask any athlete and they would tell
you that you always sprint the last lap
of the race. You give it your all before
you are finished. The training before the
event is vital. The laps during the meet
are vital as well. The energy might be
running a little low and that last lap
might be a treacherous one. Yet, it is the
one where you give it all you have.
So, perhaps you might have needed a
bit of encouragement. Or perhaps you
are like me and are on your last lap of a
project or school. Either way, you must
give it all you have. That way, you are
able to break through that finishing line
ribbon with a huge smile on your face
and a bit of sweat still left on your fore-
head.

DANIEL
Continued from 10A
laughed, foolishly, and said, "That
figures." She then gave me a detailed
outline of what products were good
buys, what were wastes of money,
what were the benefits of Panteen
Pro-V over Dove and most important-
ly she told me what the heck rose
hips were, what they were good for
and how I should drink them if I get
sick. She did it with patience, sinceri-
ty, intelligence and revealed the
secret that all hair care products are
pretty much the same thing.
So I here now, in the same breath
that I call for all hair care products to
be made illegal, I also lay down my
false sexism and say hail to these
women. You who guide men through
the sea of things in life that we don't
care about and don't know about, like
jojoba oil, and land us safely on the
other side of cleanliness with a loving
smile and an uppity roll of the eyes.
May champagne and diamond dust
always be found in your conditioner.

standing, so you can converse more confidently and more
comfortably with others.
High-tech Artificial Intelligence automatically adjusts
settings to enhance the quality of speech
Discreet triangular shape conveniently hides out-of-sight,
-' W comfortably behind your ear
Choice of 17 attractive colors blend with skin or hair, or express
your own individual style

clarity. You can come out of your shell and participate in a,whole new
world of people, places and opportunities.

Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID While
Meals on Wheels is not a
new program to assist those
who are unable to travel out
of their homes to eat, the
Lake Placid residents need-
ing such assistance relied on
the Sebring Meals on
Wheels to provide their
food.
The Lake Placid Meals on
Wheels has been in exis-
tence for three years and has
delivered approximately
7,440 meals, but the volun-
teers who delivered those
meals had to travel to or
from Sebring to obtain the
meals. Thanks to the efforts
of Lake Placid Elks Leading
Knight Bob Moran and a
new member of the Elks,
Jean Sauve, that trip will no
longer be necessary.
The National
Organization of Elks offered
all of the Elks Lodge's
nationwide the possibility
of receiving up to $10,000
in grant money to establish
a community investment
program to help Elks do
great things in their commu-
nity. Sauve and Moran spent
many hours writing up a


justification request to be
sent to the Elks National
Foundation office in
Chicago to establish Meals
on Wheels in the Lake
Placid community.
Their request for funds to
establish a base in Lake
Placid to prepare the meals
was approved in the amount
of $3,000. Lake Placid Elks
will partner with Meals on
Wheels to implement this
newly located organization
that will deliver the meals to
Lake Placid residents.
Lake Placid Elks will pro-
vide the volunteer drivers
and hopefully have enough
drivers so that' some quality
time can be spent with the
residents in communicating
and friendliness, which is so
important to' those who
rarely get out to see and talk
with others.
The most impressive
thing about receiving their
Impact Grant is that Lake
Placid Elks is one of only 25
grants that 'were approved
by the Elks National
Foundation. There are more
than 2,000 Elk lodges
throughout the United
States.

SEBRING RECREATION CLUB
Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING The season
has now started and your dues
are due. We have had our first
meeting of the season with a
good number to start with.
Line dancing is doing well
with new dances being
learned. Club members have
free lessons for eight weeks
beginning Nov. 7. This is a
good chance to line dance and
have some fun. You cannot
help but make new friends
with this group.,,Country
Swingers for Wednesday is
the correct way to good
health, good friends and a
good time.
We started a list of pros that
became one in Sebring -
Clarence Wright 1992, James
Hundley 1994, Mary Adams
1995, Shirley Wright 1996,
Victor Stanford 1997, Max
Tate 1999, Ruth Tate 2000,
Tom Jenkins 2001, Harold
Cunningham 2005 and
Walcott Davis 2003. These
people walk among us today
so if you know any of them,
take time to congratulate
them. You will meet some of
this list at most tournaments
in the district.
New shufflers wanted,
young and old alike. Sebring


has a 94-year-old that is shuf-
fling at most of the open club
events.
Open club events are the
way to start to learn tourna-
ment play. If you are compet-
itive and would like to learn
tournament play come and
join us. Come and watch
Monday at 6:30 p.m. and
again Wednesday at 1:15 p.m.
for nickel shuffle. At 1:15
p.m. Saturday is ice cream
shuffleboard. Watch if you do
not play. See what to do, also
you will see what not to do
I'm afraid.
Bridge is being played at
the club Tuesdays and Fridays
at 12:30 p.m. We are stilt
looking for more bridge play-
ers. A door is open for you
with this group. Are you a lit-
tle rusty with your game? You
will find the help that you
need at the club. You will also
find more going on within the -
club that may be of interest.
Table tennis is played
Tuesday and Fridays at 4
p.m. Are you one of the play-
ers at this time? We need
more players if we are to pur-
chase more tables. The hall is
so large you get good exercise
when you miss. So this alone
makes you play better. I hear
that Larry and Ed are the peo-
ple to beat.
Questions that you have
about shuffleboard lessons


you see John Bushee. See
John about shuffleboard with
any questions, even court
maintenance. Ed Straub about
the club, 333 Pomegranate
Ave. in Sebring. In back of
the police station.

TROPICAL HARBOR

LAKE PLACID Bill and

enjoyed doughnuts provided
by a representative of
Systems Marketing Inc. who
supplied the new fabric cov-
ered bulletin board this sum-
mer. They spoke with us
about two advertisers on the
board, Exterior Home
Systems and Millers Central
Air.
George Susco, our park
manager, spoke with us and
asked us again to please slow
down and stop at stop signs.
He also asked us to stop put-
ting rags down the toilet as
they have had to replace two
pumps at a cost of $2,000.
These costs ,eventually all
come back to us in the form of
rent increases. The park crew
will do no more lawn cutting
until after the holidays, how-
ever, if you feel your lawn
needs to be mowed, contact


the office and it will be taken
care of. If the temperature is
considerably below 70
degrees, the covers will be
left on the pools and the pools
will be closed. If your fruit
trees are diseased, they need
to be taken out.
We welcomed many
returnees and visitors, Jared
Schechter a member of the
U.S. Marine Corps, visiting
his mother, Stephanie
Schechter, and Julie Foland,
who is visiting her mother,
Mary Ann Ulrey.
Regina Garner, filling in for
our Sunshine chairman,
announced there are no
reports of illness or deaths

Diabetes a leading cause of blindness


Diabetes mellitus
is one of the primary
causes of legal blind-
ness in the working
population of the
United States. Ninety
percent of diabetics
have the non-insulin
dependent type of the
disease (Type II),
while the other 10
percent have the

observed in grossly over-
weight adults (although we
are starting to see it more and
more in our younger popula-
tions) and usually does not
require insulin treatment.
Type I diabetes usually occurs
in people younger than 30,
and does require regular
insulin injections to live.
Both types of diabetes can
affect a person's vision on
many different levels, with
the most common complica-
tion being retinopathy. The
earliest signs of retinopathy
are observed when structural
changes take place in the cap-
illaries, thereby preventing
the flow of nutrients into the
retina. This lack of flow of
nutrients and oxygen to the
retina results in damage to the
retinal tissue. Many diabetic
patients have little to no'visu-
aL signs or symptoms in the
early stages of diabetic

S J so important to have regular,
A dilated eye exams every year.
Swelling of the optic nerve
may occur in one or both eyes
of a diabetic, and will usually
manifest with mild visual
loss. This condition does not
necessarily correlate with the
severity of any diabetic
Sretinopathy.
Diabetes can also affect the
clear dome covering the front
of the eye, also known as the
cornea. Corneal swelling can
*reduce vision, sometimes dra-
matically, and decreased
corneal sensation has also
been noted in patients with.
this disease.
The risk of cataracts two
to four times greater in dia-
betics as compared to those
without the disease, and in
Type I diabetics the risk is 15
to 20 times greater. Cataracts
also seem to grow at a faster
rate in diabetics compared tb
those without diabetes.
Results of cataract surgery are
very good for patients who


have no retinopathy;
however, there
seems to be a slight-
ly higher risk of reti-
nal tissue swelling
after surgery in dia-
betics.
Temporary paraly-
sis of the isolated
muscles around the
eye may occur in
diabetics, and is fre-
quently the clue to a
latent diabetic condi-
tion. Often, the


patient will complain of "see-
ing double," and as irritating
as that may be, a temporary
solution (such as patching an
eye) is sought since this con-
dition usually resolves on its
own in one to three months.
Patients with diabetes are at
an increased risk for open-.
angle glaucoma as well.
Additional caution must be
used in monitoring for side-
effects if the patient is being
treated with a beta-blocker.
These medications can mask
the warning signs of hypo-
glycemia (i.e. shaking, night-
mares, sweating, etc.).
A sudden change in visual
acuity may also occur in dia-
betics, causing blurred vision.
Until a patient's blood sugar
has been stable for at least
three months, glasses should
not be changed or prescribed.
The first key in protecting
your vision from the ravages
of diabetes is in close moni-
toring of your blood sugar.
The Diabetes Control and
Complications Trial deter-
mined that control of a
patient's blood sugar is criti-
cal in reducing the rate as
well as progression of
retinopathy. Diet and exercise
are also essential, components
in maintaining tight control of
your blood sugar. Your
endocrinologist or internist
should be able to help you
design a regimen that works
the best for you.
The second element in
safeguarding your vision is to
get annual dilated eye exams
with your optometrist. As
mentioned previously, early
diabetic changes may not
cause you any visual symp-
toms initially, but they still
need to be closely monitored.
Your optometrist is skilled in
detecting any early diabetic
changes in the eye, monitor-
ing these changes, and refer-
ring you to a retinal specialist
when necessary.

ing, the program was entitled
"Six Ways to Prevent Holiday
Gain," given by Donna Raaf.
She said that the average
weight gain from
Thanksgiving through the
Christmas season is five to six
pounds and, as we all are
aware of how very long it
takes to lose those pounds,
she gave us six tips on pre-
venting that gain. Very simple
and very effective, such as
drinking water instead of high
calorie drinks, nibbling on
fruits and vegetables, exercis-
ing more, etc.
She finished with the state-
ment "It's not what you eat
between Christmas and New
Year's that counts, it's what's
eaten between New Year's
and Christmas."

Lady Streaks quell visiting Tornados


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
Sebring's Lady Streaks
captured 12 turnovers and
made the most of them in
Tuesday night's basketball
game as they defeated the
Booker Tornados 41-31.
The win puts Sebring's
record at 5-1 for the season,
and 3-1 in the district.
"Anytime we .can
hold a team as good as Sel
Booker to just 31
points, I am happy,"
said Sebring's head
coach Mike Lee. "The. Bo
game is about defense, U
and we have been
working all week on
our defense, and the girls
were able to execute well
tonight."
Pulling out ahead of the
Tornados early in the evening,
the Streaks were able to stay
out in front all night long.
Free throws were not a fac-
tor, but neither team was able
to seem to take advantage of
the few they got.
SSebring ended up hitting


br


o

!


just two of their six free
throw attempts, while Booker
was only able to cash in on 4
of their 15 attempts.
Booker was able to get
their fair share of the
turnovers, but was not able to
capitalize on them.
Sebring's defense held
their own by putting Whitney
Wells and Hannah Shoop
under 'the net and
ring keeping them there for
Most of the night hold-
ing the Tornados to
just six points in the
er first period.
Using Shoop, a
1 5'10" junior, as the
target for a hi-lo
offense, she was able to lead
the Streaks in scoring, netting
17 points for the night and
snatching 14 rebounds.
Wells, a 5'11" senior, was
able to net eight points for the
night and collected six
rebounds of her own.
Sebring's defense contin-
ued to hold Booker, allowing

Avon Park's Earnest Perkins will not be back as the
leed Devils headfootball coach next season. In what was
described as an administrative move by the school,
Perkins was terminated after his second season effective
Nov. 19.



Perkins out at



Avon Park


By ED BALDRIDGE
SNews-Sun correspondent'
AVON PARK Avon
Park principal Stu Gutlirie
confirmed today that
.Earnest Perkins was dis-
missed as head football
coach for the Red Devils,
but notified Perkins on
Nov. 19.
Perkins continues to
teach at Avon Park and
Guthrie confirmed that he
would be allowed to have
his annual "Circle of Honor
Dinner" on December 14.
"The decision to dismiss
Coach Perkins was mine
alone," Guthrie said in a
w r i t t e n
statement."Sometimes in
coaching, much like life,
things just don't work out
the way we would have
liked for them to. I think
this is the case in this situa-
tion. I have the utmost
respect for coach Perkins
but a change was neces-
sary."
This action follows a
season in which the Red
Devils finished their Class
3A-District 12 season with
a 1-9 record with their only
win coming from the
Iardee Wildcats.
"Obviously it was not an
easy decision to make but
one that was necessary,"
Guthrie's statement said. "I
ant to thank coach
rkins for all he-has done
9r Avon Park High School
d wish him well in his
iture endeavors."

I am going to

go out like I

came in, with my

head high and

my dignity in

place, just like I

expected my

players to do.'

EARNEST PERKINS
Former Avon Park coach

Perkins served as head
coach at Avon Park for 15
months, and inherited a
team which graduated 28
seniors between the 2006-
2007 season and only
retained eight.
Next year, Avon Park
should bring back about 30
seniors, according to
Perkins, and has the foun-
dation in place to make a
difference.
"I still believe that
through discipline and edu-
cation comes wins," he said
today in a phone interview.
"In my 26 years as a coach,
I discovered that winning is
in the third year, but only
after you have established
the foundation of academ-
ics come before football."

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

The hardest

lesson learned

Before I get to sounding
harsh and cruel, let me
express my condolences to
the family of Sean Taylor,
the University of Miami
product and Washington
Redskin All-Star who died
from a gunshot wound early
Tuesday morning.
Losing a family member in
any way is a terrible thing,
and losing one in such a sud-
den, violent way is certainly
a dose of horrible shock.
But what this very well
might also be is the harshest
lesspn possible of the dan-
gers of professional athletes
who keep the company of
'friends who aren't exactly
model citizens.
With a past checkered with
arrests of a violent nature, it
seems Taylor ran with a
somewhat sordid crowd.
Just as it seems Pac-Man
Jones and Michael Vick did'
and while they each got a
harsh lesson from these ties
that bound them, they can be
now seen as possible precur-
sors to Taylor's unfortunate
end.
Word has been going
around that with the birth of
his new child, Taylor had
begun to turn over a new
leaf.
With the advent of father-
hood, and perhaps with-the
examples of Vick and Jones,
he had likely started distanc-
ing himself from those
rougher elements of his past.
Though, in such a situa-
tion, it's likely that those
guys you used to run with
aren't going to give up the
access they had to a multi-
million dollar, life-in-the-fast
lane, bling-bling buddy.
Speculation is that is was
a robbery, but apparently
Taylor and his girlfriend
were made aware of an
intruder by noises in the
house, not any alarms that
one would think a house in
an exclusive neighborhood
would have.
Which then leads one to
think that the trespasser was
someone who knew how to
get in, but just wasn't invited
or expected.
We all have friends at one
time in our life or another -

National anthem skipped before



delayed Dolphins-Steelers game


Associated Press
PITTSBURGH Sports in America start
with the national anthem.
The Dolphins-Steelers game was an excep-
tion.
Rushing to begin the nationally televised
matchup following a 25-minute weather
delay, the NFL chose to skip the anthem
Monday night before Miami played
Pittsburgh.
The game started without any of the tradi-
tional pregame ceremonies, except the coin
toss, and neither team was introduced on the
public address system.
According to the Steelers, the NFL wanted
the game to begin as soon as possible follow-
ing the delay.
Several more minutes would have been
needed to set up a microphone and sound
equipment at midfield, where the anthem is

Avon Park's offense slowed
some in the third as Coach
Daley substituted freely.
Ashley Papelow had four
points for Lake Placid in the
quarter and Sierra Weaver
added a pair of free throws.
Avon Park held a 33-13
lead at the end of three quar-

There was no apparent fan reaction to the
omission, which occurred as many fans were
scrambling to get back to their'seats for the
kickoff.
The fans were ordered to leave the lower
seating bowl at Heinz Field when lightning
and a heavy rain resulted in both teams being
waved off the field during pregame warmups.
The teams warmed up for an additional
nine minutes before the game began at 8:55
p.m. EST.
Pittsburgh won 3-0 on Jeff Reed's 24-yard
field goal with'17 seconds remaining.
National anthems are rarely televised dur-
ing NFL games, with the Super Bowl being
an exception.

friends who might be kind of
fun to hang out with for a
while, those who live a life a
little more on the edge.
But at certain points, as
we grow up, mature, we see
which direction we want to
take.
Those friends then become
looser associates and eventu-
ally fade away as our lives
go in different directions.
Making it to the big
leagues of professional
sports is a privilege and
brings about a new lifestyle
a lifestyle we all can dream
about but only a select few
get to live.
But with that new lifestyle
come expectations.
Not only are they now rich
beyond their wildest dreams,
but they're also public fig-
ures.
Running with the old
gang, getting into trouble is
going to bring attention that
they should not welcome.
. How embarrassing does it
seem to be worth millions of
S dollars, be one of the best in
S your profession, and getting
caught doing things that a
savvy 14-year old would say,
'no thanks' to?
And the shame of it is, the
Vick's, the Jones', the Tank
Johnson's have received their
punishments and don't seem
to get it still.
Whereas Sean Taylor
seemed to be getting it, was
apparently on the right track,
intending to do the right
things, and his punishment
was the harshest of all.

Sports writi

Of all the jobs I have had, I
would say that writing about
sports is absolutely one of the
best.
Oh, you certainly have your
stress.
It is not a job for a morning
person. Sports-writing is done
at night, while reasonable peo-
ple are just going to bed.
The deadlines are a night-
mare.
Your work load is usually
after the double over-time when
the coach is either too happy or
too disappointed to even look at
you.
The copy desk and the press
workers are tapping .their feet
asking you to hurry up. It's
10:30 p.m. and everyone is
waiting on sports.
That's when true sportswrit-
ers shine.
If you are any good at writ-
ing, you will be able to grab just
a tad of the energy and excite-
ment from the game and jam it
into fifteen inches of copy on an
outdated and cranky computer
with your editor breathing
down the back of your neck all
the while juggling words and
trying to remember how to spell
because the coach forgot to
bring extra rosters.
And exactly what do you
write about when your team is
on the receiving end of a 44-0
blowout for the seventh time in
a row?
That they were gritty?
But hey, look at the perks.
Take the dress code.
Most of the time you are
expected to wear comfortable
clothes. Your wardrobe con-
sists of casual wear.
You wear shorts and golf
shirts in the summer, then jeans
and golf shirts in the winter.
Then cotton slacks and a golf
shirt if you are going to be
interviewing someone impor-
tant.
A golf shirt sale is the one
time any clothing sale makes
you happy.
When I first started writing
again for a newspaper, one of
my fellow journalists asked me
what beat I was covering'.


ng; what coulc


,

ED BALDRIDGE
Since I was new at the job, I
tended to dress a little better
than normal, and that threw him
off.
"Oh, I didn't recognize you
as a sportswriter in that outfit,"
he said.
By the way, guys usually
don't,generally talk about out-
fits at work, but I was out of
uniform.
We do, talk about sports, and
a golf shirt makes you the
expert.
The next day I had to cover a
story on girl's softball, and it
was August in Florida, so I
wore a Hawaiian shirt (all the
golf'shirts were dirty) and
shorts.
Of course that was the day I
was introduced to the new pub-
lisher, the folks from the home
office, and the paper's manage-
ment team as I passed by the
conference room trying to find
the bathroom.
When the editor mentioned I
would be helping with sports,
everyone just nodded and
smiled.
But think about the people
you cover.
For the most part they show
you rather than tell you who
they are when they play.
They are not trying to get
elected or impress anyone then.
You can see the true athletes
are in the zone. They make it
look easy.
The players are genuinely
interested in talking to you, and
somewhat flattered that. you
would approach them.
There is always respect for
your profession.
Almost everyone wants to be
in the paper, and no one lost a
puppy or had a house fire.


d be better? PERKINS
Continued'from 1D


Next perk; you get into every
sporting event for free. Just
flash the press badge.
Parking is also free. That
makes you feel somewhat
important.
Holding your credentials in
front of you like a religious
icon, you walk into the electric-
ity of the arena, stadium, or
gym and you can almost see the
life and emotion crackling
everywhere.
Makes you feel alive that you
can share some of that juice.
You can get to the sidelines
while others have to stop at the
gate.
No matter who wins or loses,
you are part of the game, partly
because you are important
enough to be included, and
partly because you saved two
dollars on parking.
Heady stuff.
Like the pope without the big
hat.
Additionally, sportswriting is
one of the few real-life compet-
itive events .after your high
school glory days.
And in my case, no one hits
you in the head while typing.
As a lineman, I got hit in the
head a lot.
Less drooling this way.
Each morning, readers open
the newspaper to:see who won
the game.
Sportswriters open the news-
paper to see who had the best
lead, the most accurate stats, the
best quote, and who was better
at the battle of words.,
Every time the paper goes to
bed, there is a feeling of com-
pleting something; of putting
your best out there, and know-
ing that others will read it.
You win some and you lose
some, but you are always work-
ing just a tad bit harder the next
time, stretching for the better.
story than the other paper. fron
sharpens iron, so to speak.
Finally, you'get to sleep late,
you get the best seat in the
house for every eveht, and
sometimes, you even get fed for
free.
Tell me, what could be bet-
ter?


coaching plans, Perkins said
"I got six more years until I
retire, and I want to go back
to middle school or elemen-
tary school coaching, I think I
can make a difference there,


and I want to continue to
teach."
"I am going to go out like I
came in, with my head high
and my dignity in place, just
like I expected my players to
do. Just the short time I have
spent with these kids have
made me proud of them,"
Perkins concluded.


Guthrie has already- begun
the search for a new head
coach of the Red Devils.
"We are currently advertis-
ing this position nationwide
and have had 15 coaches
apply," stated Guthrie. "We
will follow the hiring process
and select the best coach
available to fill this position."


A fast-paced foot race

Sebring's Daniel Grimaldo sprints upfield, keeping ahead of the Hardee Tuesday night at
Firemen's Field. Hardee had a 1-0 lead midway through the first half, but the final score
was not available at press time.


STREAKS
Continued from 1D
just 11 more points in the sec-
ond period, and .the score at
the half was 26-17 Blue
Streaks.
During the third period,
Booker's offense adjusted,
and were able to .finally put
Sebring's lead at risk, but
could not seem to hit from the


outside or from under the net
squeezing just nine more
points on the lady Streaks.
Booker finally switched
from its' zone defense to a
man-to-man late in the fourth
quarter, and slowed the
Streaks scoring machine, but
was not able to catch up.
"We started out a little
slow, but I am really pleased
with our play tonight," said
Lee. "The hi-lo offense really


worked well for us for most of
the night."
"We played well tonight,
we worked on the hi-lo all
week so I was glad we were
able to make it work," Shoop
said. "It was a good win for
us."
Sebring will try to keep
things going Friday night
when they travel to Hardee to
take on the Lady Wildcats.
