Special Victims Unit will take on elder, child abuse


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING As deputies contin-
ue searching for the remains of a
baby allegedly thrown away with
garbage, Sheriff Susan Benton is
launching a Special Victims Unit.
Lt. John Chess was selected to
command the new unit, which focus-
es on abused or exploited children
and adults.
Chess. said the department has
worked toward this for two years to


fulfill Benton's goal of teaming up
with Florida's Department of
Children and Families and working
together under one roof.
"We work exceptionally well with
DC-and-F workers," Chess said.
Anybody suspecting a child or
adult has been neglected; abused or
exploited must call Tallahassee to
initiate a case, even law enforce-
ment.
The calls generate a report, which
is transmitted down to the appropri-


ate DCF office.
Deputy Dets. Melanie Kelly and
Bob Neale are able to speed up the
process, explained Chess., having
developed a relationship with
Highlands County DCF caseworkers
that allow direct calls between coun-
terparts.
"We ask, 'Is this someone getting
bedsores because of criminal neglect
or because of old age?'" Chess said:
"We ask, 'Can you do this?' It cuts
out a lot of red tape and speeds


things way up."
The way the system is set up, DCF
caseworkers make a site visit after
receiving the Tallahassee-generated
report, calling law enforcement as,
necessary after conducting inspec-
tions and interviews.
(The process works in reverse, if
deputies are the first to encounter a
potential abuse case.)
The victims are interviewed again
by the second agency, forcing the
person to experience the trauma,


again, before another stranger.
"There's no reason to do that
when there's a better way," Chess
said, explaining the close relation-
ship with DCF allows representa-
tives from both agencies to conduct
simultaneous interviews.
Beyond anticipated. but unpre-
dictable bugs inherent in starting up

Sending out thousands of

good wishes for Christmas


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID It began
so long ago, Dennis Griffin
- who started the whole
thing can't ,remember
exactly when. It may have
been 25 years.
In any case, for decades, he
and his wife Norma have been
saving leftover Christmas
cards from one year and send-
ing them out to those in need
of a special message the next.
At first they gave cards to
World War II veterans who
lived at the Bay Pines
Veterans Administration
Medical Center of Tampa.
"We'd visit with the veter-
ans while my father was get-
ting treatments," Griffin said.
"My heart was broken to see
all the men who were forgot-
ten."
The Griffins kept this


Christmas card giving private
- it was something personal,
a way for Griffin to connect
with his father, Braden, who
had been shot down over the
Zeider Zee (in the
Netherlands), and held as a
prisoner of war for 26 months
in Stalag 17B during World
War II.
They were helped by Dee
Dee Stidham, Griffin said.
At the time she was the
owner of Lake Placid Drug
Co., and she gave the Griffins
all her Christmas card
remainders. The first year
they delivered about 250
cards.
Then, by word of mouth,
the news spread. Church
groups, mobile home park
clubs, as well as individuals,
collected and passed on the
cards they didn't use.
See WISHES, page 7A


Members of Lake Placid Christian School's student council
help personalize Christmas cards what will be hand deliv-
ered to children at the All Children's Hospital in St.
Petersburg. All together, around 4,500 cards will be distrib-
uted. Carson Griffin (from left), Georgina Flores, Victoria
Caraballo, Taylor Clark, Headmaster Dennis Griffin, student
council president Deta Waller, and Clayton Mason work on
the cards. The students are all eighth-graders.

Treatment plant owner floats offer to convey plant to county


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt @newssun.com
SEBRING Several options for
the. Thunderbird Hills Wastewater
Treatment Plant floated to the sur-
face at Tuesday's county commis-
sion meeting.
The package plant has been a
point of contention for its customers,
owner, the Environmental Protection
Agency and the county for several
years.
At today's meeting with the coun-
ty's legislative delegation, the board
will seek assistance in the form of
state grants to rehab or replace the


facility, which could become county
property if David Plank of
Landmark Utilities abandons the
plant he's been operating without a
permit for several years.
Through Lake Placid attorney
Bert Harris III, Plank notified the
county Monday that he:s willing to
convey "for free" Landmark's stock
and its assets, Administrator Carl
Cool said.
In addition, the owner of a nearby
package plant operated by Highlands
Utility Corporation notified the
county that he's open to discuss
options that pertain to his facility at


Western Boulevard.
"I thought that's what we've been
doing for the past year,"
Commissioner Barbara Stewart said,
apparently dissenting from board
consensus to further explore alterna-
tives.
At their Nov. 20 meeting, the
commissioners listened to four sce-
narios and agreed the option to tie
into the city of Sebring was optimal.
Purchasing the Highlands Utility
plant was a choice they passed on.
At the board's direction, Cool said
he and the county engineer would
confer with the Highlands Utility


owner while the county moves for-
ward exploring grant funding and
working with Sebring.
Regarding the offer floated by
Plank, Cool recommended against it
but County Attorney Ross MacBeth
said he wasn't ready to endorse or
reject the proposal.
"I don't want the county to be on
the receiving end of what Mr. Plank
is receiving from DEP," MacBeth
said, expressing his desire that Plank
continues operating the plant until a
viable solution is found.
MacBeth said the county, in
effect, would be buying Plank's


facility because $100,000 remains
on the mortgage. In addition, there's
unspecified fines and penalties that
may be attached to the title.
Likewise, the county could open
itself up to lawsuits by accepting
either the plant or the stock, of
which Plank is the sole shareholder.
"We have no idea what kind of lia-
bility may have accrued," MacBeth
said. "We're not ready to accept or
reject this offer."
Instead, he said the board should
view Plank's offer as a "working
solution," another option that may
be part of a permanent solution.

ported to the hospital. The other car, a Dodge Ram truck, flipped over numerous
times. 'I heard the crash and turned real fast,' said Jay Murphy of Lake Placid. 'I
did see that truck roll three times; the first one was up in the air.' The Florida
Highway Patrol continues to look into the cause of the accident.




Nine local teachers meet nation's
highestleacheing standards
highest teaching standards
-S-SU pht yKTR IM


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The teacher
quality movement in Sebring
has taken a major step for-
ward following Tuesday's
announcement by the
National Board for
Professional Teaching
Standards that nine local
teachers have achieved
National Board Certification
in 2007.
The nine include Amy
Zwayer, a second-grade
teacher at Avon Elementary
School; Daniel Fantin, a
media specialist at Avon Park
Middle School, Rosemarie
Joyner, a third-grade teacher
at Sun 'N Lake Elementary
School; Mary Pinson, an
Intensive Reading teacher at
Hill-Gustat Middle School;
Holly Rapp, an English
teacher at Sebring High
School; Patty Lorenzo and
Misty Matthews, third and
fourth-grade teachers, respec-
tively, at Lake Placid
Elementary School; Lillian
Palmer, a Pre-K Migrant
teacher at Lake Country
Elementary School; and
Rebekah Loweke, an
Exceptional Student
Education teacher at Lake
Placid Middle School.
More than 60,000 of some
of the most effective teachers
in the country have demon-
strated that they meet the
highest teaching standards by
becoming National Board cer-
tified.
"Like board-certified doc-
tors and accountants, teachers
who achieve National Board
Certification have met rigor-
ous criteria through intensive
study, expert evaluation, self-
assessment and peer.review,"
said NBPTS President and
Chief Executive Officer
Joseph A. Aguerrebere.
"Research demonstrates that
National Board Certified
Teachers consistently outper-
form their peers in knowledge
of subject matter and ability
to create challenging and
engaging lessons."
National Board
Certification is a voluntary
assessment program designed
to recognize and reward great
teachers-and make them bet-


ter. While state licensing sys-
tems set basic requirements to
teach in each state, National
Board Certified Teachers
have successfully demonstrat-
ed advanced teaching knowl-
edge, skills and practices.
Certification is achieved
through a rigorous, perform-
ance-based assessment that
typically takes one to three
years to complete. Overall,
the first-year achievement
rate is about 40 percent, cul-
minating in an. achievement
rate of approximately 65 per-
cent by the end of the third
year.
As part of the process,
teachers build a portfolio that
includes student work sarp-
ples, assignments, videotapes
and a thorough analysis of
their classroom teaching.
Additionally, teachers are
assessed on their knowledge
of the subjects they teach.
"National Board
Certification is part of a
growing national movement
that advances education
reform. It's a movement that
improves teaching, advances


student learning and makes
schools better," said former
Georgia Governor Roy E.
Barnes, chair of the NBPTS
board of directors. "National
Board Certified Teachers ...
are-leading the way in prepar-
ing America's diverse student
population with the skills it
needs to compete in the 21st
century."
"Achieving National Board
Certification in 2001, Julia
Burnett, our district's first
recipient is now the assistant
principal at Lake Placid
Middle School. Each year our
numbers have continued to
grow, and we now have more
than 40 active/full-time, con-
tracted National Board
Certified Teachers in
Highlands County," stated
Lisa Garrison, manager of
Human Resources,
Recruitment, and Professional
Development for The School
Board of Highlands County.
Garrison' went on to say
that "at this time there are
more than 40 teachers work-
ing toward National Board
certification within our dis-
trict."


Downtown fire highlights


necessity of renter's insurance


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING The apartment
fire in downtown Sebring last
Friday morning was a night-
mare for those directly affect-
ed. But the fire did underscore
an important aspect of rent-
ing, which is the necessity of
renter's insurance.
"Renter's insurance is
extremely important,"
Allstate agent John Snyder
said, "and it seems like not
very many people look into it.
If they knew the severity of
not having it and knew how
little it cost, they'd be
shocked."
In a typical landlord-tenant
situation, the landlord will
have insurance on the build-
ing itself. But if that building
were to catch on fire and burn
down, it's up to the tenant to
make sure their belongings
are insured and if they're
not, then don't expect an
insurance check.
"The tenant has no protec-
tion for contents, personal
belongings or extended liabil-
ity," Snyder said.
Renter's insurance covers
just about all possibilities
including fire, theft;, vandal-
ism, water and wind damage,
and lightning. It even covers
unlikely occurrences such as
damage from vehicles or air-
planes that crash into the
dwelling.
But it's not just damage to
personal property that makes
renter's insurance such a
necessity for tenants. Having
liability coverage on your
property is always important,
especially if you have visitors
often or if you have pets.
"If your dog bites someone,
you need to have liability pro-
tection," ,Snyder said, "and
renter's also covers liability,
which is a pretty good aspect
to have." Most policies fea-
ture up to $100,000 in liabili-
ty coverage, he added.
And renter's insurance
doesn't just cover apartments.
If you're renting a room in
someone else's house, and
your landlord isn't a family
member, then you aren't cov-
ered by your landlord's insur-
ance. As long as there is a
contractual agreement with a
landlord, and as long as
you're is paying rent, then
your personal belongings will


Perils covered by renter's insurance
Renter's insurance covers losses to personal property
from 16 types of perils:
Fire or lightning
Windstorm or hail
Explosion
Riot or civil commotion
Damage caused by aircraft
Damage caused by vehicles
Smoke
Vandalism or malicious mischief
Thelt
Volcanic eruption
Falling objects
Weight of ice, snow. or sleet
Accidental discharge or overflow of water or steam
from within a plumbing, heating, air conditioning, or
automatic fire-protective sprinkler system, or from a
household appliance.
Sudden and accidental tearing apart, cracking, burn-
ing, or bulging of a steam or hot water heating system, an
air conditioning or automatic fire-protective system.
Freezing of a plumbing, heating, air conditioning or
automatic, fire-protective sprinkler system, or of a house-
hold appliance.
Sudden and accidental damage from artificially gen-
erated electrical current

not be insured.
"If you're living with
another family, renter's insur-
ance isn't a bad idea," Snyder
said, "because if you're not a
homeowner, resident or rela-
tive, then you're not cov-
ered."
The truly unfortunate
aspect of uninsured renters
losing their personal belong-
ings is the fact that renter's
insurance is very affordable.
For a typical renter's policy,
$20 to $25 will get you
$25,000 in coverage, plus lia-
bility coverage on top of that.
"It's relatively inexpen-
sive," Snyder said. "Twenty
bucks a month gets you
$25,000 in coverage."
And unlike more compli-
cated policies such as home-
owner, auto or life insurance,
obtaining adequate renter's
insurance is very straightfor-
ward and easy.
"It's a pretty simplistic
process that takes no more
than 15 to 20 minutes,"
Snyder said, "then you're out
the door with security for
your personal belongings."
Some landlords require ten-
ants to carry renter's insur-
ance, primarily for liability


reasons. But e\en if that's not
the case, Snyder said, it's a
good idea for landlords to
educate their tenants about
the necessity of insurance
coverage.
"I think it's a prudent
responsibility for the landlord
to make tenants aware that
your personal belongings
aren't covered," he said.
Renter's'insurance is also
important for college students
who are moving from the
dorms to their own apart-
ments.
"A lot of students go off to
college and are now renting,"
Snyder said, "and renter's
insurance is important for col-
lege kids, especially with the
cost of computers and televi-
sions. It's just a good invest-
ment."
Events such as burglaries,
fires and floods are dangers
present almost anywhere, but
with Sebring's hurricane-
prone location, the impor-
tance of having protection is
underscored further.
"We live in a time where
fires and hurricanes exist,"
Snyder said. "For the little
money, having insurance is
not bad."

Enforcement officers thanked for clean

up of 'snipe' signs around the county


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevinshutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Highlands
County Commission
Chairman Edgar Stokes rec-
ognized county and city code
enforcement officers Tuesday
for a recent sign-cleanup
effort.
Zoning Supervisor Linda
Conrad said more than 750
"snipe" signs were removed
countywide by board, Avon
Park and Sebring code
enforcement officers as part
of a nationwide effort to
remove signs illegally placed
on public rights of ways.
More than 500 of those


signs were removed during
the course of a week by coun-
ty officers Beverly Singley
and April Hartseil.
Stokes also presented cer-
tificates of appreciation to
Bobby Hicks and Joe
Romanik, Sebring code
enforcers, and Donald
Simmons and Martina
English, Avon Park code
enforcers.
Ben Walker of Florida's
Department of Transportation
briefed the board on the
department's five-year work
program for Highlands
County.
District wide, the DOT


received 1.4 billion fewer dol-
lars for the next five years,
but was able to keep most
planned projects on track.
Lighting projects for inter-
sections at State Road 66 and
County Road 635 and at U.S.
27 and Sebring Lakes are
among those that will move
forward, as will about
$300,000 for the "safe routes

Bad breakup for teacher RuthSchutt


leads to burglary arrest


By TREY CHRISTY
trevychristv@newssun.com
SEBRING A remedial
teacher at Hill-Gustat Middle
School turned herself in
Tuesday on two counts of
burglary and two counts of
theft under $5,000.
The crimes allegedly relate
to a bad breakup.
The items stolen were
given to the victim over the
past two years as Christmas
and birthday gifts, the arrest
report said.
Linda Slicker, 42, of Avon
Park, was released on
$18,000 bond for the four
felonies.
"Part of a teacher's respon-
sibility is to self report,"
Chris Doty, HGMS principal,
said Tuesday in an interview,

Stop blowing smoke


The News-Sun www.newssun.com


Question: I've been a
smoker for 37 years, since the
age of 17. My fiance says
she won't marry me until I
stop smoking. She mentioned
Chantix, a new drug her uncle
used successfully. I'm will-
ing to try this, but scared of
side effects like baldness or
loss of sex drive. W.P.,
Naples
Answer: Baldness? Don't
worry. Low sex drive? This is
much more common with
smoking cigarettes than with
Pfizer's new blockbuster
'smoking' pill, Chantix. The
drug offers outstanding bene-
fits for people who want to
quit smoking, and possibly
drinking. Chantix minimizes
cold turkey withdrawal symp-
toms. But safety issues have


come up. Approved in 2006,
the FDA is now investigating
reports that Chantix causes
suicidal thoughts and unpre-
dictable aggressive behavior.
In September, the singer
Carter Albrecht of the band,
New Bohemians, made head-
lines when his girlfriend
reported that he had been
behaving strangely before his
shooting death and had been
taking Chantix. Reports claim
that he had more than three
times the legal limit of alco-
hol in his bloodstream at the
time of his death.
Forget Chantix. That much
alcohol can cause bizarre
behavior in and of itself. So'
can nicotine withdrawal..
When medications are sen-
sationalized on TV, it prompts


DearRPharmacist
Suzy Cohen

more people to report their
own side effects, hence the
FDA's current investigation.
Clinical trials only revealed
adverse effects such as
headache, upset stomach,
insomnia, strange dreams, and
abnormal taste perception.
Chantix works in a fasci-
nating way. When you smoke,
nicotine gets in your brain
cells and makes them release


dopamine, your feeling' good
hormone. When you take
Chantix, it goes to the same
brain cells and -sits at the
doorway, where nicotine
would normally fit in, fooling
your body by producing some
mild nicotine-like effects.
This eases nicotine withdraw-
al symptoms (nausea, cranki-
ness, headache, insomnia and
fatigue).
Because Chantix blocks the
cell's doorway, it blunts the
pleasurable effects of nicotine
if you have a breakdown and
resume smoking. Because the
'smoking' pill alters brain
chemicals, it could easily
spark mild psychiatric
changes such as anxiety, irri-
tability, restlessness or agita-
tion. But suicide? We're not


sure yet. Smoking on the
other hand, could easily qual-
ify as slow suicide by defini-
tion.
. It's best to quit without
drug intervention, but this is
easier said than done.
Cigarettes are powerfully
addictive. In addition to nico-
tine, carbon monoxide a
very dangerous gas is pres-
ent in smoke. This combina-
tion of chemicals strains the
heart and hardens the arteries
increasing risk for cancer,
pulmonary embolism, emphy-
sema, stroke and heart dis-
ease. If Chantix (or the other
'smoking' pill called Zyban)
motivates any of the .44.5 mil-
lion adults in the United
States to quit smoking, it's
worth a try...unless you have


a history of seizures, psychi-
atric disturbances, depression
or aggression. Of course, your
fiance should be on lookout
for odd behavior (except vac-
uuming, washing dishes or
laundry, which are all accept-
able). Consider Chantix or
any other method to stop
smoking because spouses and
children are also affected by
secondhand smoke.

Did You Know?
Cigarette smoke is a drug
mugger of vitamin A, C, E
and others, so take a good
multi-vitamin if you smoke.

All are at risk with health


Yes, it is true that the pro-
tectors of our health have put
a blanket over our eyes and
hid the truth we all have need-
ed far too long. We
have been "taken"
not only by the
Food and .Drug
Administration, but .
by a slow moving
Congress in "get-
ting help" for our
important needs to
live a healthy and Nat
fruitful life.
By now most of Well
you will have read JouI
what has been hap-
pening far too long
in the stalemate and
lack of vision that the FDA
has been showing along with
Congress's inability to clear
the deck of waste, lack of
funding for health issues, and
misunderstanding of what this
country really needs to move
forward in the right direction
towards better health.
Our nation's food supply is
at risk, its drugs potentially
dangerous, and our citizens'
lives at stake. They, our pro-
tectors, are short of money
and badly organized. To pur-
chase drugs that many people
cannot afford, to create med-
ical products that have too
many side effects, and to con-
tinue on with 19th century
medicine approach is ridicu-
lous and wasteful.
Right smack in front of all
us are natural supplements,
and herbs that have helped
many who have the foresight
and belief that they can be
helped with far less cost, less
risk, and a future, healthier

life. We seem to reject this
wonderful approach, and go
on with being smothered by
the financial power of the
drug industry.
Barbara McNeil
at Harvard's
Medical School has
been stunned by the
agency's sorry state.
The report put out
by a talented group
of medical people
iral has come down hard
on the ineptness of
Iess our health system as
hney represented by the
Fisch agency and its waste
of money and know-
how.
I witnessed Dr. David
Wexler, at a very serious sen-
atorial meeting headed up by
Senator Orrin Hatch, being
taken over the coals.while the
then-head of the FDA made
many inaccurate statements
regarding vitamin companies
and their products. Eighteen
senators on the dais, especial-
ly Sen. Harkin along with
Sen. Hatch, helped us be free
of a terrible imposition put on
us. America eventually won
out.
As I have asked in previous
columns, when will the very
conservative medical world
join together and help us, the


natural health world that will
certainly help America in
stopping the diseases as many
countries are now doing? We
are at the bottom of the totem
pole in health, but first in obe-
sity, diabetes, and other seri-
ous diseases.
We also have become
stressed out, there is a 60 per-
cent divorce rate and an
ungodliness in the way we
respond to each other. Love is
easier to handle than hate, and
most of all, being healthier.
Amazingly we don't know
how to handle the opportunity
given to all of us. We become
a sicker nation in the way
politicians run their business,
and do not trust what is hap-
pening to them along with
affecting us negatively daily.
We are all crying out for
sanity in our everyday lives.
When will the true peacemak-
ers step forward and give our
nation what it had and now
needs badly?

New 'phishing' scams now target Internal Revenue Service


I do not usually focus on
identity theft as a tax topic;
however, recent phishing
scams intended to look like
Internal Revenue Service
inquiries are appearing with
more regularity. As a matter
of fact, at least two clients
have contacted me in the past
month after receiving such e-
mails.
"Phishing" is the act of
sending an e-mail to a user
falsely claiming to be an
established legitimate enter-
prise in an attempt to scam the
user into surrendering private
information that will be used
for identity theft. The e-mail
directs the user to visit a Web
site where they are asked to


update personal information
such as passwords and credit
card, Social Security
and bank account
numbers that the
legitimate organiza-
tion already has. The i
Web site, however, is
bogus and set up
only to steal the
user's information.
In the IRS scams, the T
e-mail appears to T
deal with a refund
that is due to the Bill
recipient and the
refund is to be processed on a
credit card. The e-mail directs
the recipient to a Web site
where personal information is
entered (such as Social


Security number, name,
address and credit card infor-


ax
Ialk
Benton


mation). Once this
information is
entered, it can be
used for fraudulent
activity that you may
be responsible for or
may be a nightmare
to clean-up.
First, the Internal
Revenue Service
does not contact tax-
payers via e-mail.
The IRS corresponds
with taxpayers strict-


ly by regular mail.
Occasionally, the IRS will
telephone taxpayers, but only
in response to a taxpayer's
previous telephone inquiry. If


an IRS agent does contact you
by telephone, he/she will
identify himself/hersef by a
last name and identification
number. If you ever doubt that
you are talking to an IRS
agent, ask for his/her service
center location, telephone
number and extension and
call him/her back. The tele-
phone numbers for all the IRS
service centers are published
on the Internet and readily
verifiable. Never give any
personal information to any-
one unless you can verify
their identity and the rele-
vance of their inquiry.
Your personal information
is safe when you provide it to'
your CPA or tax advisor. By


law tax preparers must have a
published privacy policy in
place on handling your per-
sonal information and the
destruction of documents that
contain any of your personal
information. Privacy policies
dictate that none of your per-
sonal information can be
shared with others without
your consent. This is all put in
place to protect your personal
information, and client confi-
dentiality is of utmost impor-
tance to us.
With more and more legiti-
mate business activity being
conducted on-line "phishing
scams" using ;the Internal
Revenue Service, bank and
credit card identities are


going to continue to be a
problem. Individuals need to
be careful to protect them-
selves and their private infor-
mation. For more information
on identity theft and recogniz-
ing phishing, you can go to

A demanding task

We expect a great deal from our public servants,
and are not shy about demanding a high standard of
performance.
In fact we take so much for granted, expect excel-
lence as such a given, that we feel an equal obligation
to notice when those public servants go above and
beyond; or are faced with an especially difficult chal-
lenge.
Taking apart a mountain of garbage, piece by dan-
gerous piece, under a broiling sun, focused on finding
a thrown away child, has to be the worst kind of duty
- especially as near as we are to Christmas and the
celebration of Jesus' birth.
The irony is heartbreaking.
Imagine the pain experienced by those for whom
the best outcome is to find a dead infant. That knowl-
edge is almost as bad as the physical effort to find it.
And we don't want to forget the non-humans
among us, who give of themselves while trusting their
partners. That one dog has already been made sick,
reminds us of the many dangers anyone and anything
in that situation risks.
So we thank you, all of you, who took.your turn on
the giantheap of trash that jiggles ominously under
foot.
.That includes the men and women who work at the
landfill, and helped the deputies and others at least
narrow down the search.
Unfortunately, because the area is still so large, and
the garbage so spread out, these hard working indi-
viduals may have to accept there will be no resolution
to their task.
That won't take away from their effort it will
only make the outcome sadder than it already is. And,
we imagine, harder to accept.



Why I love Christmas


So I was going to write an
article about how I am loving
- Christmas less and less. But
then I listened to Andy
Rooney ... you know, the "60
Minutes" guy?
Anyway he is like a big
fiery warning to all sarcastic
complainers of what will hap-
pen to you if you don't start
finding some things to be
happy about. I think whether
Andy realizes it or not, he is
the official poster geezer of
the old grumps of the world.
Sort of a living Mr. Wilson,
and frankly I don't want to
stop being Dennis the Menace
quite yet.
What this means is that
instead of an "I Hate" column
this is going to be an "I Love"
column. So let's get this dis-
gustingly happy show on the
road.
I love that the Internet has
made it so I no longer have to
step into a mall if I don't want
to. I love, love,
love not going I lovi
into malls. I
love that in the everyO
last couple of thinks
years I am
averaging crazy w
approximately
1.25 mall visits go runni
per year; this is
one of my degree
proudest
accomplishments.
I love family getting
together at the holidays. I
especially love getting
together with my uncles
because they take naps at
every get-together. I love this
because at non-uncle attended
events when I try to take a
nap I get all kinds of grief for
it. I love that my uncles are
huge guys so that no one.
gives them grief for naps,
which means I get no grief.
I love going to my grand-
parents for Christmas and
sleeping in my basement
room. I love that it can be the
middle of the night all day
long in a basement room. I
love that when you wake up
in a basement room, you have
absolutely no idea what time
of day it is and you can just
lay there and decide whether
or not you want it to be day-
time.
I love going for runs in the'
snow. I love that no matter

how far or fast you go when it
is 20 degrees out and blowing
snow from every which way,
when you are done you feel
like you have accomplished
something. I love that every-
one else thinks you are crazy
when you go running in 20
degree weather with snow
blowing every which way.
SI love that Christmas sea-
son also means basketball
season. I love that Christmas
day is the day that ABC gives
non-cable subscribers the gift
that of free basket-
ball games, for
ie else the rest of the
season.

you can build

They think you
are being thoughtful, consid-
erate and helpful. I love fire.
I love, for some odd reason,
driving in 'the snow. I love it
that snow makes driving no
longer a boring affair of get-
ting from point A to point B. I
love that snow transforms
driving into intense concen-
tration with bootlegger turns
in empty parking lots. I love
that snow and ice turn every
drive into a thrilling story to
tell someone from Florida
who looks at you like you are
absolutely nuts!
I love that if I get really
sick and tired of all the snow
and ice I can always go home
to Florida. I love that once I
am home in Florida enjoying
sunny days and 60- to 70-
degree weather I can call up
all my friends up north and
act like I forgot exactly what
sleet is and try to get them to
define it for me. I love seeing
how far I can take it before
they hang up the phone on

Feeling of charity and seasonal joy should last all year


So, I must not lie to you. I
have been waiting for a few
weeks to write about the sea-
son of Christmas. It seems as
if right after the Thanksgiving
holiday I get into the
Christmas spirit. Perhaps it is
because the decorations are
being displayed in restaurants
and in homes. Perhaps it is
something about the cool
weather setting in. Either
way, it puts a whole new
sparkle in my eye.
As you walk through the
town streets or drive your car
'down Main Street you are
able to see the decorations
that are so gaily placed for all
to see. The people seem just a
bit happier.
There are plans being made
for relatives to come and visit.


Murphy's
Law
Lindsey Murphy
There are plans being made
for young people to come
home from school. There are
plans for family and fun fill-
ing the air.
There is a different feel
about this time of year. It is a
feeling that I wish we could
carry into our daily lives. It is


that feeling of charity. We are
more apt to take care of those
in need during this time of
year. This is a wonderful idea
that should be carried
.throughout all of the months.
The feeling of goodwill
should be displayed to our
neighbors whether we have
the Christmas lights on the
roof or not.
We are focusing on the
birth of Christ and what that
means to our world. We are
rereading The Miracle Story
to our children and, to our
grandchildren. We are sharing
the hope that comes from this
beautiful story of love. That is
the reason why this season is
special. It is the reason why
we want to share love with
those who are in need. That is


the reason why the Christmas
spirit should be spread into
May, August, and even
October.
As you prepare to go to the
Christmas parade in Sebring
on Friday night, think about
the feeling that you and your
children are getting. It is a
feeling of excitement and
anticipation. Bottle that feel-
ing up and save it to give you
little doses of the Christmas
spirit all throughout the year.
After all, The Miracle Story is
to be kept in our hearts year
round.

Letters


Baldridge told story of
Perkins like he is
Editor:
I would personally like to
thank (News-Sun correspon-
dent) Ed Baldridge for the
insightful article he wrote
about (Avon Park High
School head football) Coach
Earnest Perkins. I say insight-
ful because he was able to see
the real man and what hewas
trying to do for and with his
football players.
There is more to life than
football and putting points up
on a scoreboard. He was
working with these young
men to help them become
responsible human beings. It
is too bad that there are those
in education who think sports
are more important than turn-
ing out young people who are
well educated and able to take
their place in society with the,
knowledge and skills that are
necessary.
In a time when a good edu-
cation is more important than
ever I find it reprehensible
that this fine role model has
been sidelined through the
short-sightedness of a fellow
educator. We can see all
around us what happens when
no one cares.

Plant is a very stinky,

thoughts about this debacle.
The present owner ... inher-
ited this facility from his now

years ago. The elder subdivid-

about 50-60 lots zoned for
mobile home single and dou-
ble wide units.
Understand, as a developer
a business was created to
make a profit on the sale of
lots. Part of the plan was to
provide a treatment plant to
serve this development. A
cheap, substandard plant was
built with a planed obsolesces
to be 20-25 years. Well folks,
that time has arrived.
Proposed now is to have the
city of Sebring, Highlands
County or even a large grant
from the state of Florida to
bail out this business. I can't
for the life of me, and trying
to let common sense prevail,
understand how and why any
government agency would
consider a bail out plan for
the owner.
These property owners and
agencies should band together
and insist that the owner be
responsible for rebuilding of
this facility at his cost.
Understand, a profit was
gained from the sale of lots
and units to these people in
this area. It was included in
their covenants when they
bought in. These residents and
I, as a taxpayer, do not wish to
ante up to bail out another
business in trouble that cries


wolf. I invoke the city and
county commissioners to
think through their decision to
include common sense.

Political parties are
serving two masters
Editor:
The will of the people is
being violated by many
organizations, churches,
unions, etc.
Unions were organized to
represent "We the people" but
if you look how the wage
scale has remained "low" for
the last 50 years and how
many "of our largest unions
represent and promote foreign
nationals, creating "huge"
numbers of people for each
and every job, forcing wage
scales down. The Teamsters,
United Auto Workers, United
Aircraft Workers, just to name
a few. Many of these unions
have corporations sitting on
both sides of the negotiating
table on all contracts.
This was made illegal many
years ago, in the 75th
Congress, where the
Pinkerton's Detective Agency
had infiltrated the leadership
of many unions for manufac-
turers, so as to control unions.
Most unions today are con-
trolled by manufacturers "vio-
lating" the trust of member-
ship.
"All political parties" are
still marching "lockstep," to
their own "political agendas"
and not to the will of the peo-
ple. They try to make out that
political endorsements are
that of the membership, when
in reality it is only the
endorsement of the heads of
these organizations.
The government needs to
"oversee" union contracts to
make sure this practice of
manufacturers sitting on both
sides of the negotiating


tables, on all contracts, not be
allowed to happen.

Build your house on
the rock
Editor:
One of the biggest needs of
our people today is to study
God's Holy Word. From the
beginning- this was God's
plan. As our Heavenly Father,
were to be obedient to Him
because He is an all-wise
God, the God of creation.
Without Him nothing was
made that was made.
He. instructed us to teach
His laws to our children when
we get up and when we lie
down. To do that we have to
live it before them 24/7.
He tells us to study to show
ourselves approved, a work-
man that needeth not to be
ashamed, rightly dividing the
truth. This is a tedious process
that requires prayer and
dependency, upon the Holy
Spirit, but oh! What a joy to
walk with the Master.
There are so many wonder-
ful promises in His Holy
Word, but they are condition-
al; if we want His promises,
we have to live for Him. His
love is unconditional; He will
always love us no matter what
we do, but His promises
require obedience to Him and
His Holy Word. This is the
foundation of a Christian life,
which He compares to a house
built on a rock; when the
storms of life come, we're
like the house built on a stur-
dy foundation that will stand
and not be moved. There may
be things we don't under-
stand. but our faith assures us
that He is going to be with us
and carry us safely through.
God's first commandment
is: Exodus 20, "Thou shalt
have no other gods before

Me." When we are children
that kindly slips over our
heads, but as we grow we are
more aware of its meaning.
When we put anything before
Him, that becomes our god
and when we build our lives
on anything else, we are sure
to fail.
You see this life is only
temporary and though we
may think we are doing great,
which is sometimes the case,
when we close our eyes-in
death, we have no promise of
a life in Heaven. Indeed we
are promised a life in Hell.
In Matthew 6:33 He prom-
ises to meet all of our needs,
plus we have eternal life with
Him. That's good enough for
me. Who could ask for any-
thing more? We brought noth-.
ing into this world and it's for
sure we will take nothing out.
He gave His life for me; I feel
I do so little for Him, but my
heart's desire is to be obedi-
ent to Him in all things. Try
it; it truly is the good life.
Come joirrme at-First-Baptist
on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. In His
service, may God bless each
of us.
P.S. I appeal to each of you
to join me in prayer daily that
God will send us godly candi-
dates that will stand firm in
their convictions, uphold the
constitution and will have the
wisdom to lead our country
for the benefit of all. I can
already see His mighty hand
at work. When you get dis-
couraged, read II Chronicles
7:14 and claim His promise.
Thank you for your coopera-

FCC auction not one of
the better plans
Editor:
In January of 2008, the
Federal Communications
Commission will auction off
the frequencies now used by
police departments and other
public safety personnel. The
Guard Band, as it is called,
will be merged with frequen-
,cies sold to private companies
for broadband service.
All five members of the
FCC are Bush appointees,
although, by custom, two are
Democrats. Does the FCC
understand the magnitude of
this decision, coming at a
time when bank robberies and
other violent crimes are
already out of control? All
five FCC members. have
released statements on the
subject.
Commissioners Robert

Rahhhhhh."
I love that the more times I
watch "It's A Wonderful Life"
the more I seem to get choked
up at the end when George
comes home and the whole
town turns out to help him
out. His little girl says, "My
teacher says that every time a
bell rings an angel gets its
wings," and George says, in
only the way that Jimmy
Stewart can, "That's right,
that's right," then he winks
and says, "Attaboy
Clarence!" I love that I am
feeling emotional just think-
ing about this.
I think I may have changed
my mind, I do love this time
of year. Just had to remind
myself.

Daniel Bedell is an Avon Park
resident currently attending col-
lege in Michigan.


McDowell and Deborah
Taylor Tate say nothing
directly about the impact of
frequency redeployment on
public safety. McDowell and
Tate are both Republicans.
Chairman Kevin J. Martin
mentions the safety problem
in the ninth paragraph of his
statement. "We all know the
tragedies that can occur when
public safety officials cannot
adequately communicate," he
says. Then he goes on to
assume that broadband pro-
vided by the winner of the
auction is the answer.
Commissioner Michael J.
Copps is the most critical, "I
am not at all sure that a dual-
use network along the lines
proposed here will actually
deliver public safety users the
network they so desperately
need and deserve.'
Copps wonders if a private
network will be able to pro-
vide mass conference calls on
the scale needed to handle
major disasters. He also won-
ders about cost: "The propos-
al we are considering here
would give public safety
users a binding legal right to
access spectrum on a pre-
emptible basis but for a
price." Further, "The funda-
mental question here is
whether public safety users
will be able to afford to exer-
cise their right to access the
network." In other words, can
small police departments
afford the broadband network
the FCC dreams of?
Commissioner Jonathan S.
Adelstein js less critical than
Copps but does ask how the
FCC can ensure that the
"licensee truly meet the needs
of public safety in deploying
and operating the national
broadband network?"
Copps and Adelstein are
both Democrats. If the FCC is
any guide, only Democrats
are concerned about the pub-
lie safety.

Four-way stop keeps
traffic moving safely
Editor:
I would like to thank
whomever was responsible
for fixing the four corners at
Valerie Blvd. and Memorial
Drive into a four-way stop.
People are stopping and being
very considerate and polite
with each other and traffic is
moving better, faster and
safer than if there was a traf-
fic light to wait for.
Thanks again as we go that
way quite often.

Maybe Chicken Little was right


The answer that is offered
to concerns about global
warming and its potential for
disastrous consequences is
that we cannot take the sug-
gested steps to mitigate the
problem because it would be
bad for the economy. It's time
to replace the American Eagle
as our national symbol with
an ostrich with its head in the
sand or perhaps a lemming
charging over a cliff.
Blaise Pascal's wager was
once advanced as a mathemat-
ical proposition to persuade
people that the sacrifices
required to follow the teach-
.ings of the church and gain
eternity were small sacrifices
as compared to risking the
loss of eternity to enjoy a few
indulgences. Accepting the
underlying premise implicit in
the wager, the logic of the
argument:is overwhelming.
Applying this same reasoning
to the global warming prob-
lem is equally compelling.
We must make changes in
our technology to reduce
global warming, yet we have
built a technology, so fragile,
so interdependent, balanced
on a razor's edge that it is dif-
ficult if not impossible to
khow where to begin. Our
society is totally dependent
upon the extravagant use of
power and energy to supply
our need, the comfort and lux-
ury .which we have come to
take for granted, that 'it is
doubtful whether people will
Sbe' willing to make the now
rather substantial sacrifice to
obviate the risk that our
lifestyle creates, a risk which
has the potential to all but
wipe what we call civilization
from the face of the planet.
Would we be willing to go
to the kind of rationing
employed in World War II as
a first step toward saving our
situation? But our economy is
geared to making more, not
,fewer items to sell in the mar-
ket. If however the direst of
the predictions have validity,
when the ice cap melts, and
sea levels rise and our coastal
cities become memories as
vague as Port Royal is to
Jamaica, we won't have much
of an economy to. worry
about.' How serious must the
threat become before the
world wakes up to the threat
that this is reality and not sci-
ence fiction. No longer the
proper subject of political
debate or conservative skepti-
cism? Still governmental
reports which reflect the
urgency of the problem are
edited and watered down by
officials formerly in the
employ of the oil industry.
We speak of reducing


greenhouse Guest c
gases by
improving the Randy L
mileage of our
automobiles, of using fewer
plastic bags (a petrol-chemi-
cal product) use more effi-
cient light bulbs, a few more
baby steps toward the "green-
ing" of America, as if this will
slow or reverse our slow slide
toward oblivion.
Meanwhile, our technology
continues to spew out energy
dependent toys; cell phones,
which plug into the Internet
and show TV and movies and
take photographs, filling the
atmosphere with electromag-
netic waves to communicate
meaningless twaddle between
one another, communications
largely better left unsaid and
most usually without point or
purpose. New houses are big-
ger, more energy dependent'
than formerly.
While a few automobiles
are minimally more efficient,
most newer ones are bigger,
heavier, more outrageously
gaudy and defiant. To suggest
abandoning the entire system
in favor of modest, universal
public transportation would
be rejected our of hand. We
forget that our automobile and
truck manufacturer conspired
to destroy our railroads, trol-
ley and public transportation
systems in order to expand
their market. Will they now
voluntarily reduce their pro-
duction?
Reducing our 'manufactur-
ing tastes from wasteful
extravagances and myriad
choices to a few sensible

draconian
not given
tion, and
longer matt


necessities
would heavily
impact the econ-
omy, yet if some
considerations are
serious examina-
soon, it will no


Then too, try to persuade
the rest of the world, the
emerging nations, who are
just beginning to enjoy the
level of comfort and luxury
that we have long taken for
granted, that it is now too late
to expand the level of pros-
perity to those millions who
have never enjoyed a ride in
an automobile or the comfort
of air conditioning. That the
time is past and disaster is at
hand if they try to emulate our
lifestyle. Sorry, in our haste to
Sget more of the goodies, the
best of all things for us, there
is nothing left for the rest of
you. See how that will sell!
We tolerate the fanatics,
which demonizes birth con-
trol while famine .and disease
runs unchecked in the under-
privileged parts of the world.
We cannot accept the Kyoto
Treaty while China and India
play catch up. Too much is
expected of us.
The bitter reality is that
even if we have not yet
reached the tipping point, the
point of which the slide
toward disaster becomes irre-
versible, we in the west are
probably unable to reverse the
direction in which our tech-
nology has taken us.
We are unable to feed and
support our people without

our continued dependence on
the machines which poison
our air. We transport multi-
tudes back and forth across
the continent on pointless and
useless exclusions using bil-
lions of gallons of fuel, create
toys and trinkets which do lit-
tle but Add to our inability to
grasp the reality that it is
probably too late, that the
time for choice is past, and we
have designed and built the
engines of our own destruc-
tion. Rather than conserve,
our appetite for consumption
of energy increases.
The necessary medicine to
reverse the disease is too bit-
ter, we will not bite the bullet.
Rather than contemplate the
acetic diet necessary to stop
our slide toward self-destruc-
tion, we will sit back, look for
miraculous technical solu-
tions that will not upset the
"economy."
Oppenheimer recalled a
line from the Bhagarad Gita at
the exploding of the first
atomic bomb near
Alamogordo: "I am become
Death, the destroyer of
worlds."
It is not the bomb, but the
arrogant reliance in our tech-
nology that came with it that
will make us the destroyer of
worlds.

Plan for an old-fashioned Christmas


Ho Ho Ho! Merry
Christmas and happy holi-
days to all of you Highlands
County residents out there.
Can you believe it? The holi-
days are here again!
Christmas decorations were
being displayed before
Halloween this year ... talk
about a frightening sight!
Hope you've checked your
shopping list twice? Didn't
forget anyone?
Here's a thought ... why not
plan to have an old-fashioned
Christmas? Maybe not this
year as it's right upon us, but
for next year.
Go cut down a real tree and
trim it with popcorn, put on
some hot cocoa, play some


A Heart's Journey
Janelle Dennison

Perry Como or Chipmunks
Christmas music, buy the
candy canes, oranges, nuts,
berries, marbles, maybe a
doll, a truck for the kids.
Cook an old-fashioned
Christmas meal ... ham and/or
turkey, cornbread stuffing,
yams, potato pancakes, three-
bean casserole, fruit cake,
figgy pudding, eggnog, apple
cider, Waldorf salad, plum
pudding, pumpkin pie, apple
pie, biscuits ... is .your mouth
watering yet?
Now to make it authentic,


turn on your air conditioner to
65 degrees (may be hot in
Florida on that day) and don
your sweaters, pants, mittens,
scarves, etc.
Take a picture of the family
all dressed up and use it as
Christmas cards for the fol-
lowing year to send to your
family and friends. (Don't
forget to spray that fake snow
on your trees)!
Ho Ho Ho ... Merry
Christmas and Happy

News-Sun photos by KATARA SIMMONS
Lake Placid resident Gary Cavasos (far left) listens for his name

along the bottom of the stage were tons of prizes raffled off through-
"A out the night. Guests mingle near the catfish tent (aboye) during the

... Hi, my name is Hammy and Im an
adorable white with brown 7 month old
Terrier Mix. I need to find someone who is
patient, understanding and loving to help
me develop into a trusting little lady. Most
humans assume that I'm scared and timid
and don't understand why I startle when
someone comes up behind me, it's
because I have a hearing problem not
because I'm scared. I read human's faces
and expressions when they are facing me
and am probably more in-tune with
what's happening around me than most,
if truth be known. All I need is some'special ..
angel to help me to become their special angel. My pet ID # is K842

tiful mid-night black Donnie stalking any
little bug that happens his way!! Donnie
is only 6 months old now but is in seri-
ous training to become a great hunter

It's easy to feel as if the world has closed in around you when you're
affected by a loss of hearing. Everyday conversation can seem grainy, less
focused and awkward as natural speech and sounds become
harder to comprehend. Delta is the innovative new hearing device
that helps you break out of the isolation to improve your scope of under-
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,
comfortably behind your ear
Choice of 17 attractive colors blend with skin or hair, or express
your own individual style


Wearing Delta is to gain an edge to help you hear with dramatic new
clarity. You can come out of your shell and participate in a whole new
world of people, places and opportunities.

AVON PARK The Lady

Hardee Wildcats 65-11 Avon

able to play some man.to man,
but we were still a little shaky
getting started," said head
coach Paulette

Daley. "Playing Pendleton the
other night showed us some
areas we needed to focus on,
and I think we made some
progress."
The first period was

ing, as they took the
lee lead early and netted

nine more goals than
the Wildcats.
Height made a dif-
ference in ball control,
and the Lady Devil Beoncia
Godfrey was able to snatch
the ball nine times away from


the smaller Hardee team.
Avon Park was able to hit
five of their nine free throw
attempts in the second period,
but struggled the rest of the
night hitting just nine of their
21 attempts.
The Red Devils were able
to control the ball for most of
the second period as Hardee
fought for every completed
pass they were able to make
successfully.

tremendous Lady Devil 31-10
lead over the Wildcats.

"This is a team
that plays tough,"
head coach
Elizabeth Sottile said.
"But it's a team we usually
beat 2-0, 3-0. We're play-
ing well overall, but the
girls know they are capa-
ble of so much more."
The team picked things
up in the second half and
found some more scoring
chances, increasing their
shots on goal and getting
a penalty kick as well -

tonight," Sottile
said. "She's been

playing great all
S year. And as a team
we're playing
good, but just not
up to our potential so far.
They're a great bunch of
girls to work with, I'm
just waiting for them to
turn the corner."
The game puts the.sea-

FORT PIERCE- Sebring
managed to fill 10 weight
classes for Saturday's Cobra
Duels at Fort Peirce Central,
but they still had to forfeit 4
which led to a 1-3 team record
for the day.
Sebring beat Jupiter
Christian 42-36 and lost to
Fort Pierce (66-18), Jupiter
(62-9), and Vero Beach (40-
28).
Freshman Rashon Crump
(112 lbs.) got his first pin
against Kevin Carter of Fort


Pierce Central in 2:49 and
ended the day 2-2.
119 pound Dustin
Drummond, a junior, went 3-1
with a technical pin against
Taylor Lockwood of Vero
Beach with a score of 16-0.
Senior Dustin Hahn wres-
tled in the 140 pound weight
class for a 2-2 day including a
technical pin of 17-2 over
Victor Roman of Vero Beach.
In the 160-pound weight
class, Shaanan Spiegel had
the only undefeated day.
Spiegel pinned Michael
Byrnes (FPC) in 1:50 and


Thomas Parham (VBHS) in
5:39.
Sophomore Shane Liskey
(189 lbs.) beat Chesnes of
Jupiter with a 14-11 decision
on his way to a 2-2 day.
Much of the day went to
forfeits, both from Sebring
and from opponents, as some
football teams are still in sea-
son and have left the
wrestling teams temporarily
short.
Sebring will next be in
action at Okeechobee this
weekend for the Big Lake
Classic.

BCS
Continued from 1D
those on the field, without
worrying about whether it's
good for tourism, Fox Sports,
-their cronies, apologists and
hired computer geeks.
But their cynicism doesn't
end there.
In the past, the BCS fend-
ed off demands for a playoff
by "tweaking" the format -
a half-dozen times in its brief
tenure only to find anoth-
er tweak or two is needed the
following year. What they've
done the past two years to
escape the blame for the
mess they've made is suggest
they might be ready to
change.
"What I find interesting
about this year ... is this year
an anomaly or is this year a
precursor to what we might
see in the future," Slive said.
"And then trying to analyze
that question leads us to the
discussion we have had on
numerous occasions about
whether this format needs an
adjustment"
Slive and his pals back at
headquarters already know
how the "format" should be
adjusted and have from
the beginning: a playoff of
some sort; That's why a fifth
BCS game was tucked into
the current TV deal that runs
through the 2011 bowls.
Known as a "plus-one," it
could be played after the four
BCS games as a kind of col-
lege football Super Bowl.
Yet when Slive was asked
during a conference call how
soon it might happen, this is
how he answered (keep in
mind that he's a lawyer by
training):
"We have to put this one in
the mix and look at it. If you
go to a plus-one, you're
going to have years in which
it is just very, very appropri-
ate. You're going to have
years where it may not be so
appropriate. ... The only way


to solve that is to have a
flexible format and just make
sure that we look at the
standings and then decide
how to finish the year."
Translation: We ain't
changing any time soon. We
like things exactly the way
they are and as long as we
have the TV rights and the
backing of the university
presidents from the power
conferences, we'll keep mak-
ing it up as we go along.
If the truth-in-advertising
laws applied to college foot-
ball this season, the BCS
would just go-ahead and can-
cel the title game.
There's no clear No. 1 -
Ohio State hasn't beaten a
Top 10 team and lost to
Illinois, which was unranked
when it beat the Buckeyes
and is No. 13 in the current
BCS rankings'. There's no
clear No. 2, either. LSU lost
both its games in triple over-
time but against teams
that finished 8-4 (Arkansas)
and 7-5 (Kentucky) and out-
side the BCS Top 25. The
cases for all the other con-
tenders get even weaker from,
there on out.
College football's national
champions were "mythical"
long before the BCS inserted
itself into the process. Teams
played in bowl games based
on conference ties, and after-
ward, writers weighed in and
people argued over their
handiwork for decades.
All the BCS has done is
Stake over the tabulating, add
a dose of psuedo-science -
check out the three comput-
ers that ranked Missouri
ahead of Oklahoma, even
though the Sooners beat the
Tigers twice, once on a neu-
tral field and pocket a
nice chunk of the profits.
McDonald's couldn't get
away with that, either.

Markida Hawthorne looks over the defense trying to find an
opening Monday night against Pendleton.


DEVILS
Continued from 1D

Avon Park's aggressive
pursuit of the ball in the third
period successfully lead to a
wide gap in their lead and
drew just seven fouls.
With the clock running, the
fourth period opened with the
Lady Devils out front 51-11.
Hardee tried to go to the
outside in order to garner


some net, but were
unlucky in actually
getting it through the
hoop and was not able
to score again in the
last eight minutes of
the game.
Avon Park, on the
other hand, used their
depth in the bench to

bring in fresh players and was
able to widen their lead to 65-
11 before the clock ran out.
Panthers pounce on
Lady Devils
The Lady Devils didn't
fair as well Monday night
again the Pendleton Panthers,
losing 51-25-.
Passing, passing., passing.
That's the lesson the
Panthers shared with Avon
Park as they easily pounced
on every opportunity to turn


over the ball they could.
"You have to play those
hard teams in order to learn. I
think this was a learning
experience. We need to work
on our passing and execut-
ing," said Daley after the
resounding 26-point loss.
The first period was all
Pendleton as the ladies from
Bradenton broke out early
and stayed in the lead.
Scoring 16 points to Avon
Park's four.
The Lady Devils slowed
the Panther offense
eton somewhat during the
second period, holding
them to just nine more
Park points, but were unable
S to event the score and
only netted six more
points leaving
Pendleton ahead 25-10
at the half.
Coming out after the half,
the'Devils struggled to score,
only capturing four. more
points, but again held Lady
panthers to just more 12
points.
During the fourth "period,
Pendleton began a route steal-
ing and pressing the court
hard as they scored 14 more
points before the last eight
minutes were up, while hold-
ing'the Devils to 11.
The final score ended up
51-25 Pendleton.
