Share-Select program rewards volunteerism


Helps give food

kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Share Select
is a program designed to
encourage volunteerism.
The reward is. membership
in a food co-op where $25
will buy about $40 worth of
food.
"It's not leftover 'food,"
said the Rev. Ron DeGenaro,
St. John United Methodist
Church. "It's good, new
food."
Share Select pools its
resources statewide, buying
quality, name-brand products
at wholesale club prices.
Participants in the program,
explained DeGenaro, aren't
receiving a handout, and any-
body willing to volunteer two
hours per month and pay the
nominal cost is welcome.
"It's up and flown with the
times," he said, explaining he
hopes more people will par-
ticipate in light of the current
state of the economy. "At

poor people."
There's no income quali-
fiers and, though the program
is faith-based it's not faith
dependent.
Volunteer hours can be
accrued at the local church or
the local library, DeGenaro


said, and participants are on
the honor system.
Those already volunteer-
ing, ushering at church counts
as do hours spent hammering

nails with Habitat for
Humanity, qualify. There's no
requirement to increase vol-

"We would love to see it
used by as many people who
truly need it," DeGenaro said,
noting that "need" can range
from making ends meet to just
being thrifty.

Santa's Workshop


open in Avon Park


By ED BALDRIDGE
NVewsi'-Su n corresponidelnt
AVON PARK As
Christmas. nears, letters and
requests are pouring into the
North Pole from families and
children from all over the
world.
In response, Kris Kringle,
also known as Santa Claus,
has teamed up with the Ridge
Area Arc to establish a local
workshop that should help
relieve some of the 'delivery
pressures in Avon Park and
Sebring.
"I am impressed with it,"
Fannie Hoppes, manager of
the Avon Park resale store,
said of the workshop.
"But we need more space.
So far it has been a success."
Although the Arc has been
in operation for over 50 years,
this is the first year there has
been a Santa's Workshop in
Avon Park.
"Every item is donated and
all proceeds go to help run-
ning the group homes,"
Hoppes added.
Mr. Claus was unavailable
for comment at press time,

consistency

helps stop

credit scam
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.chiistv@newssun.coim
SEBRING During an in-
house investigation of bad
credit cards used at the store,
a pair of Walgreens employ-
ees noticed something
strange.
The signatures for different
cards appeared similar, and,
after looking at video surveil-
lance, so did the man making
-the purchases.
He continually wore a yel-
low shirt, blue jean shorts and
sneakers.
Highlands County Sheriff's
Deputy Paul Deshazo
responded to the fraud com-
plaint. While he was in the
manager's office an employee
said he spotted the man -
once again in a yellow shirt,
blue jean shorts and sneakers
trying to purchase two
$100 Visa gift cards with a
credit card.
Exiting the manager's
office, Deshazo yelled for the
suspect, identified as
Reinaldo Rodriguez, 29, of
Miami, to stop, but he
allegedly refused and evaded
capture by fleeing into a trail-
er park south of the store.
Returning to the store,
Deshazo was told by the
employee behind the counter
that Rodriguez pushed him
before fleeing.
As he entered his patrol car,
Deshazo was told by a resi-
dent of the trailer park that
they saw the man at the south
end of the park.
Deshazo drove to the south-
ernmost part of the park and
discovered Rodriguez in a
canal trying to swim across,
the report said.
He drew his' TASER and
ordered Rodriguez to swim
back in his direction.
Rodriguez complied and
was arrested and remains in
jail on $61,500 bond.
He was charged with bat-
tery, theft of $100-300, illegal
use of credit cards more than
two times, and resisting an
officer without violence.


due to the workload during
the season.
Staffed by Hoppes, one Arc
consumer, Maria Concepcion,
and other volunteers, the
workshop is open from 9 a.m.
until 3 p.m. Monday through
Friday and 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.
on Saturday.
Santa's operation is .a bit
older. Santa himself is report-
ed to be over 500 years old,
and the main workshop is
staffed by small elf-like peo-
ple.
And reindeer.
The Arc Santa's Workshop
is located at 899 W. Main
Street in Avon Park. All the
items are in the third building
behind the regular resale
store.
Santa's precise address is
66 degrees 33 minutes 07 sec-
onds north latitude and 25
degrees 50 minutes 51 sec-
onds east longitude.
Or just "The North Pole" if
you are sending a letter.
Although Santa's North
Pole operation runs year-
round, the local workshop
opened Oct. 15 of this year,

and will stay open until
Christmas Eve.
There are all kinds of toys
and gifts available, including
household items, Christmas
ornaments and decorations.
All are priced reasonably.
Arc relies on support from
caring individuals, private
foundations and corporations


to supplement the funding
from The Agency for Persons
with Disabilities, the
Highlands County
Commission, the Highlands
County School Board and the
United Way of Central
Florida.
Santa, on the other hand, is
independently wealthy.


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Officials of
the Sebring Special Events
Committee have announced
the winners in its annual
home decorating contest.
Committee spokesman
John Meder lamented that he
may have to go in search of
different judges again next
year.
"They told me that it was
just too tough a job that all
of the entrants really had put
a lot of work into their dis-
plays and picking winners
was a really difficult task," he
said.
Winners in the house cate-
gory were:
1. Larry and Gary Ingmire -
1421 Lake Josephine Drive
2. Jim and Carm Morris -
605 Ranchero Drive
3. Ron and Michelle Myers
- 801 Hanover Ave.
Winners in the yard catego-
ry included:
1. John and Linda Leonard
- 2073 Oak Beach Blvd.
2. Camiel White 5234
Lime Road
3. Dave and Gigi Ridley -
18 Marybell Landing Road
Winners in the mobile
home category included:
1. Donald Blonde 215
Woodbine Drive
2. John R. Haag 305
Woodbine Drive
3. Shirley Belgal 1920
Brunns Road, Lot 19
"One thing the judges said
were that there had been sev-
eral homes 'they had driven by
on their routes that could have
been winners, but who had
not .entered in the contest,"
Meder said.


Each of the winning
entrants were presented with
yard signs that will be dis-
played through the end of the
season.
"On behalf of the Special
Events ,Committee I really
want to thank everybody who
participated in this year's
event.
"Their hard work really has
helped to put the area in the
Christmas spirit," he said.

Angry teenager allegedly attempts

backwards bribe, receives extra felony


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING When one
bribe doesn't .work, the usual'
strategy is to increase the
offer. A Sebring teen alleged-
ly tried to use the opposite
approach after being arrested,
with predictable results.
According to reports,
Officer John Steffner was dis-
patched to Granada
Boulevard in response to a
suspicious person at 6 p.m. on
Saturday.
A 50-year-old man said he
didn't know the man who was
loitering outside his home,
which prompted him to call
the police.
Steffner walked up to the
suspect, later identified as 18-
year-old Andrew Carr of
Sebring, who allegedly greet-
ed him with profanity and
refused to talk further.
Steffner asked Carr if he
had any weapons, to which
Carr replied using the same
profanity and refused to coop-
erate, the report said.
Carr was ordered to turn
around so Steffner could pat
him down and started adher-


ing to his request, but then
allegedly started to resist.
Steffner attempted to hand-
cuff Carr, but the teen kept his
right hand underneath his
body near his waist, reports
said.
This prompted Steffner to
deploy his electronic control
device at the still-resisting
Carr. After the first shock
Carr continued to resist, but
yielded to Steffner's requests
after a second jolt.
On the way to jail, Carr
asked what he was being
arrested for. Steffner
explained to him he was being
arrested for resisting an offi-
cer with violence, a third-
degree felony, and the book-


ing process.
According to the report,
Carr then offered Steffner
$1,000 if the officer would
release him on the side of the
road.
Steffner told him bribery
was illegal, but the teen
allegedly continued, this time
offering $100 for his release.
Steffner repeated the
mantra on bribery, adding that
this time adding Carr would
"be charged accordingly," the
report read.
Carr was booked into the
Highlands County Jail with
the added third-degree felony,
bribery of a public servant.
He was released on $6,000
bond.

This is not your ordinary bag lady



Kool-Aid totes offer colorful, fun alternative to regular handbags


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING At first glance it
appears Bette Derks has an insatiable
craving for sugar-sweetened and arti-
ficially-colored water.
With row upon row of eye-catching
totes sewn together with CapriSun
and Kool-Aid drink pouches, it's hard
to pass up Derks' table at arts and
crafts shows.
She made her first 65 handbags
about three years ago, as a fundraiser
for a 13-year-old Michigan boy who
needed specialized surgery after a
dune buggy accident.
The boy got his surgery and Derks
brought her craft to Sebring, at her
daughter Debi Machiela's urging.
"My daughter saw this in a newspa-
per out west," Derks said, explaining
the fun bags aren't an original idea.
"She contacted the lady and she actu-
ally gave my daughter the pattern."
Now her other daughter, Nancy
Vincent, helps with the sewing.
They're not the kind of item that
flies off the table at craft shows,
Derks said, explaining she sells more
through word of mouth, or sight of
eye, as it were.
"I carry my own bag around and
people are so intrigued," Derks said.
The primary material is the alu-
minum packaging of the popular drink
pouches. A lot of juice goes to waste,
but Derks tries her best to make sure
it doesn't.


Red Kool-Aid, she said, is great for
flowers in a vase. Derks makes gelatin
and frozen pops and if her neighbors
aren't diabetic, she'll pass some off to
them.
In Michigan, the neighbors have
plenty of children on hand to consume
the juice.
Derks, by the way, is a coffee
drinker.
She lives in Maranatha Village, off
of Arbuckle Creek Road, where the
community recently had a craft fair
and are planning another for January.
"I enjoy talking with the people
who show up," Derks said, of the
craft shows, where a sign jokingly
offers free straws. "One little boy, I
have a cup of full of straws from the
pouches, he picked one up and stuck
it in a hole in the bag."
Derks thought it a great accessory
and left the straw in place.
She makes purses that range in size
from small and suitable for a child to
beach bags.
The cost $50, $25 and $15, respec-
tively, for the large, medium and
small totes.
"They're very durable and versa-
tile," Derks said. "They're a great
item for Christmas. Guys buy them
for.their girlfriends and moms."
Because her next show is not until
after the holidays, Derks can be
reached at 471-2689 for those inter-
ested in the bags.

How to make
your own bags

You will need
17-10 juice pouches
iThread
iYou may purchase straps
such as ribbon (gross grain)
or anything else that catches
your fancy that can be made
into straps.

To Prepare Your
Pouches
iCut out the bottom of the
pouch without separating the


front of the pouch from the
back. This is to facilitate
washing the pouches
throughly so they don't make
a mess when you start to sew.
Wash throughly with soap
and water and machine dry
on low setting for about 20
minutes it takes too long
to dry naturally.
iWe are making a small
purse so we will only use two
pouches across the front and
two pouches across the back.
If you want your purse big-
ger, you can use more pouch-
es and adjust the pattern
accordingly.


iFor the fr
purse, overlap
pouches putti
side. Do a zig
down the mid
front of the p
(the top need l
a cleaner pat',
than the bobby
side).
iDo the
same as
above for
the back of
your purse.
iFor the
bottom of yoi
koolaid purse

your purse.
lAttach the bottom of the
handbag to the bottom of
your front, back, and side
panels, folding down where
you left the bottom unsewn.
It is easier to attach your bag
together at the sides first,
then sew along the longer
seams at the front and back
of your bag.
iFor handles, use ribbon or
additional juice pouches. Sew
pouches top to bottom, cut
the desired width of your
handles, and fold back on
each long side (about 1/4-
inch), and zig zag stitch both


sides. Fold down the top of
your bag about 1/2-inch (to
hide juice drink tops and to
make the top even) and, if
you like, add some trim
(some prefer eyelash trim as
it's easy to sew and is cute.

Showing their Christmas spirit
News-Sun photos by SCOTT DRESSEL
The First Baptist Church preschool held its annual
Christmas show Monday night. All of the students, from
babies right up to the 4-year-olds, took part in the show,
which was centered around the story of the candy cane. The
kids waved candy canes, played their 'drums' as they
marched to 'The Little Drummer Boy,' acted out the story of
Jesus' birth and ended the night by singing 'Happy Birthday,
Jesus.'

Year's Eve


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
During a visit to Gator Board Shop in Sebring, Guinness World Record hopeful Rob
Thomson signs his autograph for local skaters, from left, Julian Bareno, 10, his brother
Jadon, 6, and their cousin Jonathan Paneque, 10. Thomson passed on the nearby skate
park, his goal is distance not shredding gnarly stunts.


SKATE
Continued from 1A
In Switzerland, he realized
that cycling wasn't challeng-
ing enough, so he completed
the final 1,000 miles on a
skateboard.
A specially-designed long-
board, Thomson's drop deck
skateboard has 72-millimeter
wheels, the business part of
the board dropping between
the wheels and hovering two
inches above the road.
The larger-than-normal
wheels roll better over rubble
and surface imperfections.
The board is fabricated from a
carbon-kevlar composite
ensuring a lighter vessel.
The deck's low ground
clearance reduces motion
wasted by bending one leg to
kick off with the other. ,
"I'm just somebody who
really enjoys self-powered
travel," Thomson, said,
explaining he's neither skater
nor cyclist. "The food tastes
better. The sleep is deeper. I
find the experience is so much
sharper."
As coordinator of interna-
tional relations for Amagase
Town Office in Oita
Prefecture, Japan, he arranged
visits of local officials to New
Zealand and encouraged com-
merce between the two
nations.
Most recently, before tak-
ing on the world one kilome-
ter and now one mile at
a time, he was as a translator
for Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific
University in Beppu City, in
the same prefecture.
Though he enjoyed his job
and the culture, Thomson said
the Japanese don't share his
sense of adventure and pur-
suits off the beaten path.
"Traveling solo and carry-
ing everything on my back is
something that really appeals
to me," he said.
Doing so has meant many a
night on the side of the road,
sometimes in sub-zero-degree
weather. At other times, he
was welcomed with open
arms into the homes of com-
plete strangers who learned bf
his trip during a chance.
encounter on a lonely stretch
of road.
Blue Lagoon's co-owner
Bob Cadzow was one of those
strangers.
Initially, Cadzow and
friends passed Thomson on
the Seven Mile Bridge. Later,
they saw him at Castaways, a
Marathon restaurant.
They offered an alternative
to take him away from the
West Coast traffic that he'd


encounter skateboarding to
Tampa. That route brought
him north on U.S. 27 to the
Saloon.
Cadzow and his fiancee
have provided a place to sleep
since Sunday. I
"This was a great sugges-
tion," Thomson said of the
diverted route. "Typically, I'll
just look at a map and go that
way."
To get across the Atlantic,
Thomson took a job on a boat
crew, assisting in two yacht
deliveries. The first took him
from England to the British
Virgin Islands, where he spent
a month looking for a boat to
get him to the United States.
Despite the positive experi-
ence, he's more landlubber
than seafarer, describing his
days on the high seas as "tol-
erable."
"In the end, I prefer the
freedom of being on land,"
Thomson said, acknowledg-
ing that some people consider
the open seas' vastness liber-
ating. "I felt confined to this
small boat."
A natural concern for many
people, especially mothers,
would be the safety factor.
Thomson, and those
who've made similar solo
sojourns through Third World
countries or the less-desirable
parts of superpower nations,
surely has faced his share of
riff-raff and ne'er-do-wells.
"The world is an extraordi-
narily-safe place," he said,
emphasizing "extraordinari-
ly" and making a point to
counter the negative percep-
tion offered by media.
"Ninety-nine point nine per-
cent of people I've met have
been generous, kind. The
other zero-point-one have
been drunk."
Good things happen every
day, he points out. They hap-
pen hundreds of times a day.
to different people in various
situations, so much that socie-
ty sees past it, Thomson
explained.
"Instead, the negativity is
highlighted because it is
novel rather than the norm.
Spending long days on a
longbpard, kicking, pushing,
eating and ticking of the
miles, Thomson has a lot of
time to think, though nailing
down his thoughts is no easy
task.
He said 80 percent of the
trip is work managing his
food and water load while
watching out for traffic and
thinking about where he'll lay
his head that evening.
, The remaining 20 percent,
he said, is pure fun. Those are


the moments that keep him
rolling.
In the brief week and a half
that he's been in the United
States, Thomson said the
greatest difference between
Europe, Central Asia and
America are the big-box
chains here.
"Where are the small busi-
nesses?" he said. "It appears
to me that America is con-
trolled by corporations. It's so
big and impersonal."
That's not to imply he's
been treated poorly here.
Thomson is interrupted
during the interview by a
waitress handing him a slip of
paper to call "Carlos..
He met.Carlos earlier in the
Keys. Since then, Carlos has
helped Thomson N\ ith lodging
contacts along the \\ al.
The call Monda% \\ as to get
the Tampa address he'll stay
with a friend he met working
in Switzerland), w here Carlos
wants to send a tent he
bought.
The tent is among items on
a wish list posted at
Thomson's Web site chroni-
cling the trip in picture,. a
blog, comments, maps- and-
other information:
"He set me up big lime,"
Thomson said.
His lunch also was inter-
rupted by Lynn Nolan, whose
marriage Thomson inadver-
tently attended Sunday. She
and hubby Russ Nolan met at
Blue Lagoon and had their
first date there. On Sunday
they married at the Lagoon.
She asked the usual ques-
tions.
"How do you eat?" and
"How are you paying for this
trip?"
Thomson gives his well-
versed answers, "I carry food
I don't have to cook." And,
"This is self-financed through
personal savings, donations
and the goodness of people."
He gets by on a daily budget
goal of $5.
Despite the logistical speed
bumps of self-contained trav-
el on foreign roads via an
unimaginable mode, Thomson
said his greatest challenge is
himself.
"Those pale in comparison
to the mental challenge of
reassuring myself .I can do
this," he said. He motivates
himself by saying, "There's
no better time to be happy
than right now."

Though the board discussed

John Tallent, director of

board, said the county should-


n't be in the utility business.
But, noting that that wasn't
the point of Tuesday's meet-
ing, he lauded Lake Placid's
efforts to plan ahead as the
"right approach" but he said
Urban Service Boundaries
weren't the correct avenue.
"I'm tired of county taxes

New Co-op Connections Program offers value to PRECO members


Special to the News-Sun
WAUCHULA Peace
River Electric Cooperative
has launched a program that
offers further proof that being
a member of an electric coop-
erative has its advantages.
The Co-op Connections
program, a new card-based
member benefit program for
Touchstone Energy coopera-
tives, is designed to deliver
added value to cooperative
members. PRECO, headquar-
tered in Wauchula, is imple-
menting this program in con-
junction with the. other
Touchstone Energy co-ops
serving 17 million member-
owners nationwide.
A free offering for co-op
members and participating
businesses, the program bene-
fits cooperative members by


Cards offer discounts at area businesses


offering valuable discounts at
participating local and nation-
al businesses. At the same
time, those businesses benefit
from increased customer vis-
its by co-op members partici-
pating in the program.
Peace River's members
recently received Co-op
Connections cards in the mail.
Once the member has signed
the back of the card, it may be
used at participating business-
es locally and nationwide.
Co-op members can get a fla-
vor for which businesses are
participating in the Co-op
Connections program by log-
ging on to PRECO's Web site
at www.preco.coop.
It will be easy to pick out
which local businesses are


participating just look for
the Co-op Connections stick-
ers in their windows.
Whenever a. Co-op
Connections customer,
whether from Peace River
Electric or from one of the
hundreds of Touchstone
Energy electric co-ops across
the country, shows their card
at a participating business,
they receive a discount.
"The Co-op Connections
card is a valuable tool that
creates an even greater sense
of membership and reinforces
PRECO's longstanding com-
mitment to community," Nell
Withers, vice president of
Marketing and Member
Services, said. I
"It will add value and


increase customer loyalty at
participating businesses.
Simply put, the Co-op
Connections program is
another way our members
benefit from being a part of
their electric cooperative."
Touchstone Energy is a
national alliance of local,
consumer-owned electric
cooperatives providing high
standards of service to cus-
tomers large and small. More
than 600 Touchstone Energy

delivering energy and energy
solutions to approximately 17
million customers every day.

tives serve their members

Several year-end tax planning opportunities


The end of 2007 is quickly
approaching and that means
another tax filing season will
soon be here. One of the ques-
tions that I have been answering
the last couple of weeks is,'
"What can I do before the end of
the year to save on what I will.
owe Uncle Sam?"
While everyone's situation is
a little different, the basic prem-
ise of year-end tax planning is
to: (1) defer the recognition of'
income, (2) accelerate the recog-
nition of deductions and credits,
and (3) make gifts to individuals
and exempt organizations. The
following.is a partial list of gen-
eral year-end tax planning strate-
gies that may apply to you:
Recognize Capital Losses on
Stocks and Securities The
stock market-has been very
volatile over the past three
months with large swings both
up and down. For tax purposes,


... it may be
advantageous
'- .to go ahead
and sell the
"losers" in the
portfolio in
Order to
deduct the
loss in 2007.
Tax Remember
that "nearly
Talk worthless"
Bill Benton securities still
must be sold
in order to take the loss. Do this
before the end of the year. Also
remember that "wash sale" rules
apply so you can not buy back
the stock until after the 30th day.
Make Deferrals into 401k
(or similar) Retirement
Accounts Working individu-
als may be eligible to make con-
tributions of income into a
retirement account. Such contri-
butions reduce taxable compen-


station and may be eligible for
matching contributions from the
individual's employer.
Pay Outstanding Alimony
Payments Court ordered
alimony payments are deductible
only when paid.
Make Full Use of Flexible
Spending Accounts Utilize
previous tax free contributions
or seek reimbursement for un-
reimbursed medical expenses.
For individuals who itemize
their deductions on their federal
income tax return or are close to
the itemization threshold for
2007 (married filing jointly -
$10,700, single $5,350, plus
$1,050 for each individual over
age 65), should also-consider the
following;

Old Glory the gift

that keeps on giving

Here's a last-minute, but first-rate, gift idea for
your neighbor, or family member who flies a worn out
flag buy them a new Old Glory.
Sure, some people say the flag is only symbolic,
and one co-opted for ties, shirts and beach towels no'
less.
But to see those Stars and Stripes fly, especially
with crisp colors on a brisk day with a blue sky
behind it, is to see and feel what is best about our
nation and ourselves.
We believe at this historical time, when other
nations hate us or fear us, and so many people are
talking doom and gloom, it is all the more important
to take pride in our past, and believe in our future.
You can tell our history using the flags we have
waved.
We have already survived terrible tragedies and
wars, a few of our own making. But we have always
prevailed, if sometimes only by finding the courage to
examine-our mistakes and learn from them.
Our history has been one of rising expectations, not
just for material things, but more importantly we
think, for better behavior.
So we will have to rise to the high standard our flag
has come to represent.
Whatever we choose to do, we must be able to do it'
with honor.
The next several years may prove challenging
indeed. We may have to sacrifice.
But we believe America is. up to whatever tests lie
before us.
The flag reminds us o0 that-too.
Remember, as we are called upon to change how we
do things, or think about things, or use things, that ou-
flag also changes its field of stars expanding as the
country grows and yet, despite the changes, it still
flies straight and true.
So for Christmas, think beyond red and green -
think red, white and blue.

Don't just believe in miracles,
but depend on them
Editor:
We want people to know that there are still
miracles taking place in today's crazy world.
Our daughter and two grandchildren, of
whom she has custody, had to leave Florida
to go to Oklahoma to be with her sister while
she was being treated for severe health prob-
lems. While she was there she obtained excel-
lent support from her sister and family but,
also from the state of Oklahoma. She was
being treated at Samaritan's Touch Care
Center in Sebring, but they could only do so
much and because the state of Florida has no
benefits for a single woman, even while try-
ing to raise her two grandchildren she had to
leave to have her sister take care of her.
Recently, she was ordered by the court in
Highlands County to return to Florida with,
the children. She was
given 10 days to travel
more than 1,200 miles
with two children and be
settled in a place to live.
Being the only responsi- 'Let
ble ones in this area, my,
husband and I were dev- govern,
stated. Such a short
notice and to uproot the COurt di
.children from very stable
life and especially just reading m
before Christmas. When f eea n
things get so bad and sit- p
uations look hopeless, the
only place to look for SAMUEL B
help is the Lord and Illinois state
that's who we looked to
through prayer and a talk
with our pastor, Pastor Bill Breylinger of
Union Congregational Church in Avon Park.
Miracle No. 1, we were put in contact with
a Chuck Ball, manager of the Highlands
Habitat for Humanity Resale Store. We were
able to get everything that would be basic
needs for the family regarding furniture and
miscellaneous items. No. 2 was a gentleman
in our church by the name of Mike Deeson
and his helper, A.J., who did repairs and
cleaning. No. 3 came from a young woman
and her sister, Stacy Dutcher, who is a pro-,
fessional painter and whose husband owns
Dutcher's Cafe in Avon Park. The entire -
apartment was painted as a gift to us at no
cost. No. 4 was the need for $834 to get the
electric and water.turned on. Two sizable
donations were given from two anonymous-
donors to put toward the deposits.
Can you see why we believe in miracles?
The daughter and children arrived safe and.
sound to a lovely home, that would not have
happened had it not been for the Lord and
the loving people at UCC.

The claims made in the "Legacy of

haters of President Bush and America. If they
were true it would make you want to pack up

where where things are obviously much bet-

Remember why we celebrate this season: His birth, His love


It was the day; she just knew it.
From the way that her body was feel-
ing to the sweat on her brow, she
knew that she only had-hours to pre-
pare for the baby's arrive. Yet how?
She was in an area not her own. She
was away from her home. And there
was no room for them in the town to
stay. Soon, the birthing pains will
become so strong that her eyes will
fill with tears. Yet, this is not how it
all began.
It was just nine months prior -
only nine months, but it must have
felt like years. How she had grown!
As the time wore on, her body
changed and her faith did as well.
The angel came to her to tell her she
was to bear the Son of Man. She was


to bear a son, so be
it. But how? She was
yet a virgin.
His grace fell
upon her in ways
that she held dear to
her heart. She con-
ceived and exalted
the Lord. Her ways
were known to Him
and the angel Mui
referred to her as the
favored one. She L
gavebirth to a son Lindse
and her eyes must
have shone like the stars. It was the
child she carried for nine months; the
child of her own womb. The young
girl wrapped the babe in cloth. She


rp
La
yI


gently took his body
that fit into her arms
and laid him into just
a mere manger.
Did she know
that the child she
went into labor with
would later go
through pain for her?
Did she know that
hy's this child was sent to
bring hope to a
W world in need? Did
Murphy she know that this
child would change
lives and restore hearts? Even 2,000
years later?
The story never answers these
questions. What it does say is that


she praised her Lord for all He
brought into her life. I am thankful
she praised Him for what would be
my Savior, my King. She praised
Him for His love.
It is the story of hope. It is the
story of love. It is a story of the
Creator of all giving His all His
son. We give because He gave. We
love because He loved. We are
restored because of a babe born to a
young mother. It is a beautiful time to
celebrate!

dent. She can be contacted by e-mail at

Best holiday

movie ever is

hard to pick
I was thinking.., what is
the best holiday movie ever?
And so I have decided to
make Daniel's Best Holiday
Movie Ever list. I am guess-
ing that it will probably
become the defining holiday
movie list of our time,
maybe of all time. So get
ready for the greatest holiday
movie list since the very
dawn of time.
10. "Miracle on 34th
Street"
This movie beat out a lot
of other lame Christmas
movies that my sister really
loves including "Rudolph
The Red-Nosed Reindeer"
and "White Christmas."
These were movies I was
subjected to by her year after
year. Especially "White
Christmas," blah! Why she
likes that movie I don't
know. At least with
"Miracle" you kind of get
that tingly spine thing when
all the mail comes in at the
court case.
9. "Elf"
My father can't stand this
movie for the exact same
reason I love it. That reason
would be Will Ferrell eating
a giant plate of spaghetti
noodles smothered in choco-
late syrup and candy. Acting
at its best.
8. "How The Grinch Stole
Christmas" (Jim Carrey ver-
sion)
I remember when my fam-
ily went to go watch this in
theaters and it was totally
sold out. The thing I really
like about this movie is
every once in a while I.see
people who are just natural
Whos from Who-ville. I saw
a girl in a grocery store
recently who I swear was
Cindy Lou Who.
7. "How The Grinch Stole
Christmas" (Darth Vader ver-
sion)
You got to admit that it
only makes a classic more
classic when it has Darth
Vader's voice in it. I think I
always felt bad for the dog in
the movie. Forget the Whos,
what about the poor doggy?
6. "Ben Hur"
Now you may be saying
"Ben Hur" isn't a Christmas
movie. Well, go watch it
again because you are
wrong! The very first scene
is the whole baby Jesus, wise
men and shepherds thing. So
there, it is a Christmas
movie. And it has the best
chariot action scene of any
Christmas movie!
5. "Ernest Saves
Christmas"
As a child my dad forced
my family to watch every
Jim Varney, "Ernest" movie
that was ever made. "Ernest
Saves Christmas" was proba-
bly the best of them, though.
The most classic line is when
Ernest tells the elves in his
best John Wayne voice,
"Well, hang onto your leder-
hosen, razor ears. We're
going to drop under their
radar."
4. "Planes, Trains and
Automobiles"
There are so many classic
moments in this movie that it
is really an injustice to just
pick one, but I am going to
go with when John Candy
and Steve Martin get pulled
over in the rentalcar that
Candy set on fire the night
before.
Trooper: "Do you have
any idea how fast you were
going?"
Candy: "Funny enough, I

Continued from 12A
Liberal outfit around has
reviewed the results and
found that Gore lost ... peri-
od. The U.S. Supreme Court
ruled that invalid votes could
not be cherry picked and
interpreted to change the
result. In the 2004 election
Bush won 81 percent of all
the counties in America,
that's hardly by a thread.
Yes, it is also true Bush
wanted to be a uniter not a
divider, however, the Liberal
Left, smarting from their
election losses, would have
no part of it. Even after we
were attacked on 9/11 Hillary
Clinton was asking "What
did he know and when did he
know it?" The result was and
still is gridlock in Congress.
When Osama Ben Laden
and his Islamist Terrorists
attacked New 'York President
Bush promised a response.
He made good on that prom-
ise by routing the Taliban in
Afghanistan. A year or so
later Saddam Hussein, a sup-
porter of terrorism, was
given an ultimatum to rid
himself of weapons of mass
destruction. In 1998 Bill
Clinton came before the ,
Nation to explain his attack
on Iraq because Saddam
Hussein had WMD's and was
pursuing nuclear weapons.
Saddam, as he did back then,
defied the United Nations
and America resulting in the
Iraq war. That war was won
in short order but winning
the peace a different matter.
Like war time presidents
before him (Lincoln,
Roosevelt and Truman) gen-
erals were replaced until
desired results were
achieved. Today General I


Patraeus and the Surge
Strategy is working in spite
of naysayers like the liberal
media and Democrats who
continuously called for sur-
render and withdrawal of our
army.
Our military is only deci-
mated in the minds of its
haters. The truth is the U.S.
army is the greatest and most
modern force in the history
of the world.
Our economy remains
strong with Gross Domestic
Product highest of any coun-
try in the world. Inflation is
at 2.5 percent and unemploy-
ment down to 4.4 percent
with nearly 9 million jobs
created since 2003. Also, fed-
eral tax revenues have
increased 35 percent, due to
the Bush tax cut for working
Americans. Because of it the
federal deficit was signifi-
cantly reduced and three
years ahead of Bush's plan to
cut it in half by the time he
leaves office. Unfortunately,
the liberal media is hesitant
to report it properly or per-
haps they just missed that lit-
tle nugget. Yes, it is true that
America is the world's
largest importer but not the
largest exporter. That posi-
tion was lost under Bill
Clinton and the Democrats.
'America faces a host of
problems in the future, main-
ly security against Islamist
Terror and domestic entitle-
ments. The war on terror is
real but unfortunately, some
of us have forgotten what
happened on Sept. 11, 2001.
The most important job of
our president has is to protect
the citizenry. To take all
measures necessary to keep
us and our children alive. We
can only hope the next presi-
dent has the wisdom to do
just that. Regarding the enti-


tiements, i.e., Social Security,
Medicare, universal health
care etc,, we must maintain a
strong economy in order to
do anything. I believe the
one thing that will surely
tank our economy would be
to raise taxes.
Lastly, America was
founded on Christian ideolo-
gy. It permeates our laws and
way of life. Because of it we
are the greatest country in the
world. Our Founding Fathers
knew this and so stated in the
Declaration of Independence.
The-Constitution forbids
establishing one single
national church but not reli-
gion per se. More than 86
percent of Americans are
Christian. According to'the
founding fathers God has
ordained it. Failure to com-
ply is a very dangerous road
if we truly care about
America.

Our girls need a few good women leaders


Our community is seeking
a few good women leaders to
motivate, inspire, nurture and
empower our girls in an
engaging and loving format.
Perhaps not as an individual,
but through a group.
We need to get involved
with our girls who are pres-
sured by media, celebrities,
friends, relatives and even
parents in a negative way.
The academic system is
also failing our girls, through
no faults of the teachers, but
through a system that is
structured to focus on a state
implemented academic sys-
tem, that instills fear in the
minds of our girls, thus con-
vincing them that they are
academically challenged.
A brilliant student in one
teenage girl, she gets good
grades and is proficient in
mathematics. However, when
the Florida Comprehensive
Achievement Test results
came back, she learned that
she had failed the reading
part of the test and was sent
to remedial reading. How
could this be? Well, as I
understand it, this child may
have answered one or two of
the higher points question
incorrectly. This same child
scored high in the Kaplan
test. What happened, you
might ask. The system failed
her. Not every child tests
well under extreme pressure.
If that wasn't devastating
enough, this.child was berat-
ed by her mother in the pres-
ence of her friends, described


~tTh~


the



as being stupid and dumb
while her friends looked on.
Her mother's reaction to her
had nothing to do with her
academic performance. How
do you think this child felt?
The system had failed her,
her mother had failed her.
They both indirectly or
directly told her she was stu-
pid. This young girl then
reached out to a hotline and
was told that she should
speak to her guidance coun-
sellor.
Looking around this com-
munity, I see strong women
leaders who can make a dif-
ference in the lives of our
impressionable girls. Women
who can inspire creativity.
Women who can appreciate
their differences. Women
who can help these girls to
embrace life in a positive
way, through interaction
about visual arts, the theater,
music, We need a few good
women to help strengthen an
immune, compromised self-
esteem.
A few good women are
needed to teach our young
girls about exercise, nutri-


tion, morals, leadership and
high expectations. We need a
few good women to celebrate
their personal development
while guiding them to the
top, women who will listen
without passing judgment.
qinee many of our girls
have no knowledge about the
significant impact women in
our community are making,
it would be more effective
that each girl chosen be guid-
ed by a team of women.
"It takes a village" is an
old African proverb. The fos-
tering of positive connections
between women and girls,
takes high quality leaders. I
challenge you to make a dif-
ference in the lives of our
girls. Some day down the
road you will be smiling as
you see the difference you
have made. Whether that girl
becomes an ambassador, a
world leader, a chief execu-
tive officer of a major corpo-
ration, an inventor, a Wall
Street broker, a scientist, a
real estate tycoon, you will
know with satisfaction that
you were innovative in sav-
ing and preserving a brilliant
mind.

was just talking to my friend about that. Our
speedometer has melted and as a result it's
very bard to see with any degree of accuracy
how fast' we were goihg'."
Candy has a few' great one liners including
"If they told you wolverines would make
good house pets, would you believe them?"
3. "A Charlie Brown Christmas"
Super realistic animation in movies like
"The Polar Express" and the hilarity of films
like "Elf" still can't compete with the classic
goodness of good ole Charlie Brown. The
funny thing about this movie is that despite
its feel-good ending and Linus giving the best
ever reading of the Christmas story from
Luke, I still walk away from it a little sad.
Not many cartoons can do that and still be so
great. The Snoopy dance helps. Poor old,,
depressed Charlie.
2. "A Christmas Story"
This one was hard for me because I think


this is one of the funniest movies ever.
It is also one of the most quotable; even
my mom who hates it quotes it once in
a while. I can't think of a movie that has
more classic moments or one that is so good
at being-100 percent believable! It describes
the Christmas kid world perfectly.
1. "It's A Wonderful Life"
Yeah, I guess no big surprise here. But that
is the best thing about it; you know -what is
going to happen because you have seen it
year after year after year. But it doesn't mat-
ter because no matter how many times you've
seen it, it is still good'. And I find that the
more times I watch it, and the older I get, the
more the ending moves me. I think everyone
has their days where they think it probably
would have been better if they were never
born, it's great to be reminded at least once a
year, that if you hadn't been born the world
would be a different place.

Real Estate Tax Consider
paying your recent real estate tax
bill prior to the end of the year.
Medical Expenses If you
had a medical procedure during the
year that would put you over the 7.5
percent Adjusted Gross Income lini-


itation, you may want to consider
paying any outstanding medical
bills prior to the end of the year.
Deductible medical expenses can
include payments made by credit
card as long as the charge occurs
prior to the end of the year.
Mortgage Interest -
Consider making your January
mortgage payment prior to the end
of the year. By doing this, you can
accelerate the mortgage interest
deduction to 2007.


Sales Tax Deduction -
Individuals are eligible to deduct
state sales tax in lieu of state
income tax. Since Florida does not
have a state income tax, most
Florida residents deduct their sales
tax. Big ticket items such as cars,
boats, motorcycles, or home
improvements usually have a signif-
icant portion of sales tax in them so
you may want to go ahead with one
of these big ticket items if you were
contemplating making a purchase
early in 2008 anyway.

High net worth individuals also
should take advantage of the
$12,000 annual gift exclusion for
gifts to family members. While
these gifts are not deductible, they
do reduce an individual's taxable
estate if they are subject to federal
estate tax. Also, since there has
been no definitive move on this by
the U.S. House or Congress, the
estate tax threshold is set to go back
to $600,000 in 2011.
Because each individual's tax sit-
uation is different, it is important to


Gi;~f

discuss any of these year-end tax
planning strategies with your tax
advisor before implementing them.
Also, remember that once Dec. 31
passes, your 2007 tax situation is
set in stone and only minor tax
strategies are available to you.

What can you do
about osteoarthritis?
Today, more than 10 mil-
lion Americans suffer from
osteoarthritis of the knee,
making it the most common
form of arthritis in the United
States.
When the cushioning lay-
ers of cartilage within the
joint are worn down, the
bones begin to rub against
each other. This leads to
swelling and increased stiff-
ness and many daily activi-
ties 'become painful and diffi-
cult.
But what can you do to
protect your joints, reduce
the symptoms and support
your doctor's treatment?
With assistance from some of
the world's leading knee
experts, the American
Arthritis Society has com-
piled some useful and practi-
cal tips for self-care and
made them available on the
Society's Web site. Each tip
is interesting and easy to fol-
low.
These and many more sug-
gestions regarding ,
osteoarthritis can now be
viewed at www.american
arthritis.org.

Friend &


SEBRING RECREATION CLUB
Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING So much to
be thankful for today and the
club is one of the many things
on the list. Did you know that'
the club is active all year long
and not just in the winter? We
do only have club meetings in
the winter so all members
have a say in the club.
Shuffleboard activities are
now under way for the Park
Tournament that will be
March 4, 2008, this year. By
request, we will have 10
teams competing instead of
only six. Each team will be
made up of six players and the
cost will be $6 a person. See
George Kisel or Carl Wile if
you have any questions about
this.
Remember, you must regis-
ter your team early if you
want to compete in this one.
The first 10 teams will be
chosen.
How do the shufflers in
your park stand compared to
other parks in the area? The
list is now up to sign up for


league shuffleboard that starts
Jan. 9. It is closer than you
think. If you have not signed
up yet, you still have time.
Dick Woolacott would, like
to see more line dancers. The'
floor is not crowded and it
would be nice to have some
new faces. You do not know
how happy you make people
if you join them in fun. Come
and see just how much fun is
had at line dancing with us.
You will be a stranger as you
pass the door only once and
you will have a new friend.
Tuesday is bridge,
Wednesday is pinochle,
Thursday is euchre and Friday
is bridge. So you can see by
this that our club is weak in
cards and needs more card-
playing members.
Table tennis needs some
new and more players so that
they need more tables. I have
heard that they would like to
have more ladies join in this
fun.
Bingo has started.
I would like to see some
firemen join us in shuffle-
board. It would even be nice
to have firemen teams from


Sebring. We have some
retired firemen that are very
good and it would be nice if
we had some younger firemen
with us.
Items needed for the yard
sale on March 7-8; see Ed
Straub. John Bushee still
wants more new shufflers. If
you have never shuffled
before, he still wants you. If
you shuffle in a park at this
.time you should try the club.
You will get a new idea or
three to try. If you are inter-
ested in tournament play,
come to the park to learn
about this. The Orange
Blossom is less than a month
away, Jan. 2 and 3. Hope you
are ready for this one. We are
at 333 Pomegranate Ave. in
Sebring, behind the .police
station.

In more detail, this revision:
(1,) Increases the homestead exemption by
exempting the assessed value between
$50,000 and $75,000. This exemption does.
not apply to school district taxes.
(2) Provides for the transfer of accumulated
Save-Our-Homes benefits. Homestead
property owners will be able to transfer their
Save-Our-Homes benefit to a new homestead
within 1 year and not more than 2 years after
relinquishing their previous homestead;
except, if this revision is approved by the
electors in January of 2008 and if the new
homestead is established on January 1, 2008,
the previous homestead must have been
relinquished in 2007. If the new homestead
has a higher just value than the previous one,
the accumulated benefit can be transferred; if
the new homestead has a lower just value, the
amount of benefit transferred will be reduced.
The transferred benefit may not exceed
$500,000. This provision applies to all taxes.
(3) Authorizes an exemption from property
taxes of $25,000 of assessed value of tangible
personal property. This provision applies to all
taxes.
(4) Limits the assessment increases for
specified nonhomestead real property to 10
percent each year. Property will be assessed
at just value following an improvement, as
defined by general law, and may be assessed
at just value following a change of ownership
or control if provided by general law. This
limitation does not apply to school district
taxes. This limitation is repealed effective
January 1, 2019, unless renewed by a.vote of
the electors in the general election held in
2018.

.Further, this revision:
a. Repeals obsolete language on the
homestead exemption when it was less than
$25,000 and did not apply uniformly to
property taxes levied by all local governments.
b. Provides for homestead exemptions to
be repealed if a future constitutional
amendment provides for assessment of
homesteads "at less than just value" rather
than as currently provided "at a specified
percentage" of just value.
c. Schedules the changes to take effect
upon approval by the electors and operate
retroactively to January 1, 2008, if approved
in a special election held on January 29, 2008,
or to take effect January 1, 2009, if approved
in the general election held in November of
2008. The limitation on annual assessment
increases for specified real property shall first
apply to the 2009 tax roll if this revision is
approved in a special election held on January
29, 2008, or shall first apply to the 2010 tax
roll if this revision is approved in the general
election held in November of 2008.,

Red Devils wrestle Bulldogs to the ground


News-Sun photo by ED BALDRIDGE
Avon Parks Jace Grimmitt gets a good hold of his Frostproof
opponent in the 215-pound weight class. Grimmitt would
win by pin in the Red Devils dual meet win Tuesday night.


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK The Avon
Park Red Devils aggressive
performance paid off as they
easily overpowered the
Frostproof wrestling team
57-21 Tuesday night at
home.
"Several boys exceeded.
my expectations," said co-
head coach Lee Elder after
the match.
"We wrestled 12 tonight,
and they were excited about
wrestling in front of their
family and friends. Most
everyone did as we expect-
ed. I am happy with the
team's performance, espe-
cially since it was our first


home game. That excitement
paid off. And we get to go
into the holidays on a posi-
tive note.It is always good to
go into the holidays on a
positive note."
One of those exceeding
expectations was John
Chittum.
"John did well for us
tonight. He had a big deci-
sion. I am very pleased with
his progress."
Chittum's 15-5 decision
in the 125 class helped the
Red Devils tame the
Bulldogs.
The Red Devils come
back after their 48-36 loss to
the Bulldogs last Saturday


night.
Only having eight suiting
up, the Devils forfeited 30
points to the Dogs in that
last match-up.
"I am proud of how our
guys wrestled tonight. I saw
some aggression that have I
not seen lately," said co-
head coach Ed
Brown."Some of the kids
have been a little passive,
but their aggression paid
off."
The Devils win puts them
at 5-6 record in dual match-
es.
In the 145-pound weight
class, Jack Bland scored a

Lady Streaks hold off Avon Park


By JOHN BEDELL
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK The Sebring Lady
Streaks were more like the Lady
"Slows," but their patient half-court
offense was the answer to Avon'
Park's up-tempo style of play.
Sebring squeaked past an upset-
minded Lady Devils' squad 43-40.
Whitney Lee led Sebring with 20
points and Beonca Godfrey had 21
for Avon Park.
"We've got this triangle delay that
is pretty effective when it is run
right," Sebring coach Mike Lee said.
"It is all about making good deci-
sions"
"For the last tw6 years that we
have played Sebring, I hae felt the\
are beatable," A on Park Coach,
Paulette Daley said. "I'm taking this
as a tough loss. We had a lot of men-
tal mistakes."
Sebring jumped out to a 10-3 lead

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne


It's kind of funny, when
thinking of a topic for my col-
umn, I have to click an icon
that says, 'new story' before I
can start writing it.
That's what sparked the con-
nection with New York Yankee
pitcher Andy Pettite's response
to his being named as an
Human Growth Hormone user
in the Mitchell Report.
For his admittance and
explanation, Pettite explained
that he used it to recover from
an elbow injury, and used it just
two times.
When I first heard that, I was
kind of pleased that one of
these players actually admitted
to it, giving the report that
much more relevance and cred-
ibility.
I liked David Justice's
response as well, him saying
that he had bought it, and had
the intention to use it, but once
he saw that needles were
involved decided he'd pass.
As a fellow needle fearer, I
can relate to and buy his story.
His sub-par stats for the fol-
lowing season further back it
up.
But while I am glad Pettite
was man enough to admit to
what he did, I quickly realized
that this would serve as the
'new story' for others named in
the report to glom onto and use
as their reasoning-- so they
x don't seem quite so guilty in
the public eye.
Kind of like when a group of
kids is caught doing something,
then one kid comes up with a
good excuse and the others all
quickly chime up, "yeah, that's
what I did too."
Problem is, doctors can and
do prescribe HGH in the treat-
ment of some patients for vari-
ous reasons.
If any player had something
that HGH could help. them
with, then why the secrecy, the
denial and cover-up when they
could have gone to a doctor and
, done it all legal-like?

High School Boys Basketball


'Dogs too much for Dragons

By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
M t LAKE PLACID -
It's the little things that
matter most and unfor-
tunately, too many of
those were missed
Tuesday night as the
Green Dragons took
their first district loss,
61-58, at the hands of
the visiting Bulldogs of
Frostproof.
"We, as coaches,
know what to do and
can tell the players
what to do," head
coach Levi Williams
said. "But they have to
be the ones to do it.
They need to recognize
who to get the ball to
down the stretch."
Those two would be
forwards Josh Hickey
and Conlin Veley, who
did do their share of
scoring, but it was
never quite enough to
get Lake Placid (5-4, 2-
1) over the hump.
Frostproof jumped
out early, building a
22-12 lead into the sec-
ond quarter, but a furi-
ous ralley, keyed by
News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE three pointers from
Travalier Sholtz goes up strong for two of his 13 points Veley and Thaddeus
Tuesday night. They would be quite enough as the Dragons Legree, the halftime
fell to Frostproof.

Courtesy photo
Four lucky girls from lake Placid attended the Jennie Finch Softball Camp in Winter
Garden December 1 and 2. Breauna Corley, pictured with Finch, Ashley Paeplow, and
Kaeli and Megan Spurlock were coached in softball techniques, and worked in several
stations over the two-day camp. Also attending and coaching with Jennie were five other
Gold Medalists, Laura Berg, Crystl Bustos, Toni Mascarenas, Mackenzie Vandergeest,
and Natasha Watley. Jennie's dad/personal coach, Doug Finch, worked with the girls on
their pitching skills, and demonstrated the Finch Windmill. The others coaches worked
them on hitting and bunting techniques, fielding, throwing, etc. The University of Central
Florida's softball team also assisted."Dream and Believe" is Jennie's slogan, and each of
the girls came away inspired by this, and also a better understanding of the game.

A generational divide


on who's really the best


Tom Brady this. Bill
Belechick that.
Enough already. I'm about
to lose my New England
chowder.
Please do not buy into all
the hype about these Patriots.
Are they good? Of course.
Are they great? That
remains to be seen.
The season isn't over,
despite what some commen-
tators would lead you to
believe.
Even if these guys go 16-
0, you cannot convince me
that they are as good as the
1972 Dolphins.
I'll give you three good
reasons.
Here is the first players.
Take a look at the 1972
Dolphins roster. You had six
Hall of Famers on that roster
and a Hall of Fame coach.
Sure I know Bellechick
has become the football
genius of your Generation X-
Z, I-Pod or whatever you call
your.'collective selves.
Don Shula was a pretty
smart coach and he even did
it without cameras filming
the opponents hand signals.
Hey, he was good enough
to shake off a defensive coor-
dinator coaching stint in
Detroit.
Bob Griese, Larry Csonka
and Paul Warfield can stand
up to Tom Brady, Randy
Moss and who is your run-
ning back?
Offensive lineman Larry
Little and Jim Langer made it
to Canton because they could
flat-out beat up defensive
lineman.
Their teammate Bob
Kuechenberg should also be
in the Hall.
You ought to at least know
about Kuechenberg. Back in
your diaper days in Indiana,
we lived next door to his ex-


John Bedell
wife and kids.
By the way, don't forget
that the starting quarterback
was out a big chunk of the
seasons with a broken leg.
Hard to imagine New
England winning without
their precious Mr. Brady.
Anyway, the Dolphins had
an outstanding defense too,
led by linebacker Nick
Buonicotti, who made the
Hall of Fame.
Defensive backs Dick
Anderson and Jake Scott
should probably be there too.
Here is reason number
two. Look at the opponents
for the Dolphins and check
out the opposing quarter-
backs Len Dawson, Fran
Tarkenton, and Joe Namath
faced the Dolphins.
Please tell me you have'
heard of the last one.
Who had Tom Brady
faced-off with this year? A.
J. Feeley, Chad Pennington
and Jason Campbell have not
been on anyone's all-time list
except maybe at their high
schools.
They did beat Petyon
Manning but the rest don't
deserve a mention.
And reason number three
is I'm old, grumpy and I
don't like Tom Brady.
Guys in mid-life crisis do
not cheer young overpaid
athletes with supermodel
girlfriends.


The News-Sun www.newssun.com



Counterpoint to the 'old school' argument


Okay first off I love that I
am supposed to prove that a
modern team is better than
one from twelve years before
I was born.
Typical of YOUR genera-
tion, picking arguments with
poor defenseless, youth about
things that happened when
they weren't alive.
Sad really, but I will
humor you.
Now I am sure the '72
Dolphins were great and all,
but let's face it, none of them
could touch this group.
Players today are so much
better physically it isn't even
funny.
Have you seen some of
those catches Moss has
made? You show me where
people were doing that
before.
And lets not even get start-
ed on the stats Tom Brady
has already thrown for 45


DEVILS
Continued from 1D
pin, and so did teammate
Omar Torres in the 160-pound
class.
Light weight Greg Gentry
wrestled up a weight class at
112, and his pin was one of
the high spots for the night.
"He (Gentry) did very
well," Elder said. *
"Clint Faircloth has also
come a long way. He is a first
year wrestler, and even
though he lost, he has
improved a lot," Elder added.


LADIES
Continued from 1D
a jumper for the Streaks but a
jump ball gave Sebring anoth-
er chance. Adams then cori-
verted on an in-bounds play
for a 43-40 score. .
A\ on Park had a final

touchdowns this season
through 14 games.
Do you know how many
touchdowns the Dolphins
totaled, for their whole entire
season, rushing and receiving
combined?
40. Period. Exclamation
Point!
As far as future members
of Canton how about Tom
Brady, Richard Seymore,
.Junior Seau, Randy Moss,
Rodney Harrison and Bill


In the 215 weight class,
Isuel Guzman walked with a
pin in a very quick match.
Heavy weight Jace
Grimmitt also scored a pin
along with 171 pounder
James Bland.
Another big score for the
Devils was Josh Sula, whose
12-0 decision was the last
match of the night.
The Red Devils are off for
the holidays and will be back
at it January 5 when they
travel to Sebring for the
Spiegel Memorial
Tournament.


chance with 3 second on the
clock. .Coach Daley called a
timeout to set up a play, but
Avon Park could not get off a
shot before the buzzer.
Sebring improved its
record to 9-4 overall and 6-2
in district play. Avon Park is
3-9 overall and 3-4 in the dis-
trict.


Belichek.
But that isn't even the
point is it?
Isn't the wonder of
Belichek that he has been
able to take guys who were
flipping burgers one week'
and turn them into an effec-
tive starter the next?
Sure the Spygate thing was
a bit of a stain, but you know
in a couple years they are
probably going to make all
that as legal as the guy at
second stealing signs.
And they had that help for
what, one game?
As far as opposing quarter-
backs, when did Peyton
Manning,. Ben Rothlisburger,
Tony Romo, Phillip Rivers
and Carson Palmer become,
chump change?
You remember Dan
Pastorini, Dennis Shaw and
Gary Cpozzo?
Yeah neither does anyone


STORY
Continued from ID .
On the positive side, Pettite's
revelation fuels the fire against
the top-dog named in the report,
Roger Clemens.
The report said that former
Yankee trained Brian
McNamee provided and admin-
istered HGH and steroids for
Clemens and Pettite.
While McNamee may have
been of- questionable character
and perhaps dismissed as a reli-
able source, Pettite's admittal
.pretty much tells us that the


else. I mean congratulations
on picking out the three
biggest losers, but obviously
the Dolphins weren't going
against a Pro-Bowler.every
week either.
And yes I have heard of
Joe Narfath, I'm not stupid,
he was that drunk old guy
who hit on the hot young
broadcaster a couple years
ago on national TV.
So you can rattle off all the
names of geezers from the
good ole days you want, but
you put both teams on the
field in their prime and it
will look like Flipper decided
to pick a fight with Jaws.
Oh, and by the way
*Dawson and Fran didn't even
make the Pro Bowl that year.
So don't mess with my
generation, we don't need
cheesy nicknames like Baby-,
boomer, we've got the
Internet.


source seems to be reliable after
all.
And as ESPN.com columnist
Bill Simmons pointed out, it
gives us an explanation for why
Clemens inexplicably picked
up the piece of broken bat and
hurled it at Mets catcher Mike
Piazza during game two of the
'00 World Series 'roid rage.
Of course, Clemens issued d
statement Tuesday, denying
ever using any performance

At least he's sticking with his
story until he can come up
with a new one.

Dear Santa,
As you know Christmas is com-
ing this month. I hope your ready to
send all those presents to the peo-
ple of the world. It must be a very
hard job doing that. So I'm going to
help you with that. For this
Christmas I want a game called
"World War Craft". I would like this
because I want to see my friend's
account. Another present I would
like is a type of head gear. It looks
like headphones with a stick coming
out and at the end of that stick is a
speaker. I would like this because I
want to talk to my best friends.
Fianlly, I want a Nentendo DS. I
would only like a regular one. I don't
want you to waste your money. I
hope this has helped you. Have a
holy joly Christmas.
Jonathan Psaras

Dear Santa,
How are you and Mrs. Clause?
Are your reindeer good? My dad

of the things I want is a four wheel-

wheeler is that I won't be bourd out
side and my brother could ride it
too. One more thing I wnat most of
all for the whole family is Mario and

reason I want this game is that its
fun, four players, and it has two
great characters. Write back about
