Arson suspected in trailer fire

Second blaze in a month at DeSoto City mobile home


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING Smoke and flames intermittently
poured from a vacant trailer at 3301 Sonnet Road as
fire made quick work of the structure.
Firefighters were just as quick, but heavy dam-
age was done before they arrived.
"The fire was under control after about 15 min-
utes of fighting it but there was a lot of fire in areas
we couldn't get.to," Fire Operations Supervisor
Jimmy Branca said. "We had to mop it up for an
hour."
One firefighter required assistance from
Emergency Medical Services personnel during the
fire fight, sustaining minor injuries but not being


Parade may

see some

changes

Safety of kids a

prime concern
By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING This year's
Christmas parade drew one
of the biggest crowds in its
history this year, but a few
minor problems did arise.
The parade drew a record-
132 entrants and Dan
Andrews, Greater Sebring
Chamber of Commerce
President/CEO, said that is
"about the .limit" for the
event.
The lack of public rest-
rooms downtown remained
an issue, and the Chamber is
planning to address it in the
coming year. A total of 12
portable toilets would be.
needed to accommodate the
spectators, Andrews said,
which would cost over
$1,000 to bring in.
"We will have to find a
means to do
that," he said.
"We are cog-
nizant that
there are sev-
eral thousand
people down-
town."
Andrews Also, the
XChamber met
with representatives from the
fire and police departments to
discuss safety, an idea
requested by council member
Jeff Carlson in part as a
response to the tragic death
of a young boy at Plant City's
Christmas parade earlier this
month. /
"We're going to be proac-
tive in our approach, by tak-
ing all steps humanly possi-
ble to make sure something
like Plant City doesn't hap-
pen," Andrews said. "There
were some really construc-
tive, positive things.set forth
at the meeting for next year's
parade."
One step that came out of
the meeting calls for each
parade entry to designate one
representative as a contact
point and "safety officer."
The representative would
then be given the responsibil-
ity to go over the rules and
regulations with those

transported to the hospital.
. "Someone was overheated, so to be on the safe
side we get them rehydrated," Branca said. "That's
the function of EMS."
The trailer, of undetermined value at this time,
was declared a total loss.
Inside the vacant home was a bed frame, mattress
and some furniture, but most everything was
burned, Branca said.
This is the second time in a month the residence
had caught fire the first time originating from
the front, this time the rear.
Neighbors were in their backyard when they saw

Making the season bright


News-Sun photos by KATARA SIMMONS
A home on the 400 block of Sunbird Square (above) is decorated with traditional Christmas lights as.well as several
'Trees for our Troops.' The home is located in Thunderbird Hills South in Sebring. George and Gail Nyborg put up
three lighted trees (below) to pay tribute to family in the military and law enforcement. The Nyborgs live at 433
Sunbird Square in Thunderbird Hills South in Sebring.


'Trees for the Troops' has

special meaning to family


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING --George and
Gail Nyborg have two sons
and a grandson in the mili-
tary, along with a son and a
daughter-in-law in law
enforcement. That's why,
when it came time to put out
the Christmas decorations,.
they figured one tree wasn't
enough.,
So they put up three -
two red, white and blue ones
in honor of the military and.
a third green and white tree


symbolizing the colors of
the Sheriff's Department.
The idea 'for the trees
came about after
Thunderbird Hills South
resident Darlene Watkins
organized a Christmas Trees
for the Troops program,
where residents of the park
placed wire trees in their
front yards in honor of those
serving overseas. The
Nyborgs, who are both 68,
decided to order three of the
trees and place them promi-
nently in their front yard,


along with two yellow rib-
bons they placed on a tree.
George's son and grand-
son are serving in the Navy.
His son Bob Herbst Sr. is


currently stationed in
Pennsylvania has been in
the military for 21 years.

Dim outlook

not alarming

for growers
Citrus production
forecast to decline by
9.6 percent by 2017
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING The Florida
Department of Citrus, updat-
ing its 10-year production
trends, estimates an orange
yield of 130-160 million
boxes in 2017-2018.
That's down from 167 mil-
lion nine-pound boxes this
year, reflecting a 9.6 percent
decrease from 2006 to 2007
and a 25 percent drop since
1999's high point, said Dr.
Mark G. Brown, research
economist, Florida
Department of Citrus, in his
December report.
In a worst-case scenario,
production could be as low as
106-117 million boxes:
"I think that's veiy, very
unlikely," said Ray Royce,
executive director, Highlands
County Citrus Growers
'Associaton. it would take
that perfect storm for that to
happen."
A perfect storm would
include continued drought,
hurricanes, cold and groves
displaced by development.
Doomsday scenarios aside,
Royce said Thursday that
forecasts by nature are often
proven untrue due to unantic-
ipated factors such as value
increases (due to a supply not
meeting demand), favorable
weather and improvements to
the fights against greening,
canker and other citrus ail-
ments.
The cool real estate mar-
ket, increased fruit prices and
passage of Hometown
Democracy (which would
hamper development) could
come together to reward
orange growers, he said.
"I think that if you're a
good grower and have a good
production program and good
disease program, it's good
news," Royce said of the
report, presented Wednesday
at a meeting of the Florida
Citrus Commission.
"Marginal groves may go out
of business. I don't think it's
good news for them."
Consistently the second or
third orange-producing coun-

City rejects bids for


fire station renovation


Insurance proved too
costly for firm that
was to handle job
By MATT MURPHY
imatt.niurphy@ newssun.coin
SEBRING The city has
rejected bids for the renova-
tion of the downtown fire sta-
tion after the winning bidder
withdrew due to a require-
ment for $5 million in insur-
ance costs that they could not
afford.
The insurance requirement
has been adjusted and the
project is already being
advertised for rebidding. This
is the second time that bids
for the station renovation
have been rejected, and the
decision will push back the
opening of the renovated sta-
tion until at least summer of
next year.
"It's not been a good thing
for us," City Administrator
Bob Hoffman said. "Our fire-
fighters are living in tempo-
rary quarters and we're very
sensitive about that.
Hopefully, there will be no
further problems."
In a letter to the city dated
Dec. 10, E.O. Koch Vice
President Clarence Polston
cited "conditions in the insur-
ance industry" as the reason
for backing out of the bid.
"We are ready to com-
mence the job with our cur-
rent insurance, but we under-
stand your decision to rebid
the job," Polston wrote.
The insurance coverage
that was objected, to would
cost around $20,000 to
obtain, Mayor George
Hensley said, making it too
high a price to pay for many
companies.
"It's arguable that no insur-
ance product made would sat-
isfy that requirement,"; City
Attorney Bob Swaine said.


"The Mayor worked to make
it more commercially rpason-
able so that the folks could
actually obtain insurance."
The city had the option of
accepting the second bid from
Mapco, but qualifying the
runner-up bidder would have
cost the city around $40,000.
The city decided to rebid in
order to give companies who
were unable to meet the for-
mer insurance requirements a
chance to bid the project.
"Our opinion was this was
too significant of a change not
to let other bidders get a
shot," Swaine said.
"Hopefully this will net the
city a lower bid when it does
go back out."
Also at Tuesday's council
meeting:
The council passed a res-
olution that will allow the city
to enact a non-ad valorem tax
assessment, such as the fire
assessment which is currently
being studied.
The resolution does not
actually enact any new taxes
and it is non-binding, but it
will leave the city's options
open when it comes to decid-
ing whether to levy an assess-
ment.
Council recognized out-
going City Building Official
Jim Jacobs with a proclama-
tion celebrating his 30 years
of service to the city.
"We're glad for you, glad-
you've reached this point of
retirement," Mayor Hensley
said, "but we're also sad that
we give up a dedicated, loyal
employee."
Jacobs began his career as a
police officer, and was
appointed as Building
Official in 1982. Hensley said
the building, department is
"functioning at unprecedent-
ed levels" thank to Jacobs'
leadership.


- County, Sebring working on

Thunderbird Hills South plant


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Highlands
County Engineer Ramon
Gavarrete, who doesn't own
any utilities himself but man-
ages a few for the commis-
sioners, is a couple of steps
closer to being prepared for
the possible abandonment of
the Thunderbird Hills South
Waste Water Treatment Plant.
The county commissioners
on Tuesday moved toward
establishing a special benefit
district that would allow the
board to recoup acquisition
and improvement costs and
fund operations and mainte-
nance should Landmark
Utilities walk away from the
package plant.
Doing so would require 60
days notice.
After several months of
meetings, hearings and the
continued hunt for viable
alternatives, the city of
Sebring approved Tuesday an
interlocal agreement with the
county that paves the way for
the city's eventual acquisition
of the plant that's not permit-'
ted and is not wanted by its
owner.
The special benefit district
would affect only those prop-
erties served by the
Thunderbird Hills treatment
facility.
But, before it's established


the county board must notify
the public of its intent to
implement non-ad valorem
assessments, define the
boundaries and hold public
hearings.
It's a lengthy process that,
because the abandonment
could happen at any time
within 60 days of notice, the
commissioners wanted to set
in motion.
Estimates for the rehabili-
tation and upgrades to the
plant range from $750,000 to
$2.2 million, depending on
what is done who takes over
its operations.
A forthcoming engineering
study would help determine
the final expense and the
interlocal agreement allows
the county to !reimburse
Sebring for any engineering
services rendered, Gavarrete
told the Sebring council.
The interlocal agreement
expires April 30. By then, he
hopes the two governments
are operating, under a new
interlocal that more-specifi-
cally address the situation.
"This not something, the
county has pursued,"
Gavarrete said. "It's some-
thing that has been thrown to
us thanks to Florida statutes."

Handle 10to be principal at

new Memorial Elementary


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.conz
SEBRING It was
announced Tuesday, but
already the excitement has
drawn varied feelings from
Memorial Elementary
School's new principal Ruby
Handley.
"My feelings were mixed.
It's a challenge, I will do a
good job at it, but when you
have been at one place for any
length of time they become
your family," Handley said
,about leaving her current
position as Fred Wild
Elementary School's princi-
pal.
Her teaching career dates
back to 1973, including 13
years in administration, eight
of those speit in her current
position.
"It's quite an honor to open
a new school," she admitted.
The new Memorial
Elementary School will open
at the beginning of the 2008
school year to help relieve the
swelling numbers of Avon,-
Park and Sun 'N Lake
Elementary Schools.
Naming the head of the
school was done early so
Handley could help shape it,
Superintendent Wally Cox
said.
Principal Andrew
Lethbridge was notified at
roughly the same time last
year to open the Kindergarten
Learning Center as he
remained the assistant princi-
pal at Cracker Trail
Elementary.
"There are a lot of deci-
sions that are made well
before next year," Cox said
about the work already put
into the school. "She will
continue to make sure all of
Fred Wild's needs are taken
care of but will be able to see
our needs are met at
Memorial as well."
"I have very dedicated
teachers here and they will
continue to work to meet the
needs of the students,"
Handley said. The school will
draw students from the three
area schools to relieve their


population. A majority of the
teachers from those three
schools will end up populat-
ing the halls ,of Memorial,,
too.
"We will lower the popula-
tion in those schools, so we
would expect a lot of those
teachers would move to the
new school," Cox said. "That
is another reason we wanted
to appoint someone this early
because, we will start that
process as early as March or
April."
Administrative, guidance,
secretarial and bookkeeping
staff will primarily be new
positiiof .buLthe majority of
classroom teachers will come
from schools losing the stu-
dents, Cox said.
"There is a good chance,
due to retirement and growth,
that new teachers will be
needed," Cox said, but added
the number would be consid-
erably smaller than the other
staff members needed to be
hired.
The school will be a mod-
erate size, but Handley said
she is ready for anything.
In drawing the new bound-
aries, Cox is aware and dedi-
cated to making the schools
as equal as possible, Handley
said.
Fred Wild has 560 students
enrolled, with Sun 'N Lake,
sitting near 900. That makes
Sun 'N Lake the third largest
school in the district, behind
Sebring and Avon Park High
Schools.,
Cox was hesitant to discuss
the future of the now-vacant
Fred Wild position, but said
he anticipates candidates
from both inside and outside
the district to have their eye
on the job.
No deadline is set for hir-
ing Handley's replacement.

Suicide staved off in standoff


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.corn
LAKE PLACID The
death of a Placid Lakes man
was averted early Wednesday
morning due to the special
skills of the Crisis
Negotiation team.
The Highlands County
Sheriff's Office Special
Response team was also on
scene at .Lake Groves Road in
Lake Placid in response to the
suicidal man.
The man was threatening
himself with a knife and
allegedly carried a bow and
arrow with him.
"He made statements that
he would use that to force the
officers to kill him." Lt. Tim
Lethbridge of Criminal
Investigations said.
Five negotiators worked
together to talk the man down


The News-Sun would like to
remind the readers that the names
listed below reflect those who have

TREES
Continued from 1A
His grandson Bob Jr. is a
medic who is stationed at
Camp Lejune North Carolina.
Gail's son James Purvis,
45, is a colonel in the Army
who is currently stationed at
the Green Zone in Baghdad
and is a liaison officer who
works with the multinational
forces in Iraq. He volunteered
for another tour of duty after
seeing several of his friends
stationed overseas for multi-
ple tours.
"He volunteered to go back
over there," Gail said. "He
had friends that had served
two to three tours already."
But it's not just military
service for Gail's side of the
family. Gail's other son, Jess,
is a lieutenant with the
Highland County Sheriff's
Office, and Jess' wife
Shann6n also works for the
department. Her daughter-in-
law Angela is also involved
in the profession, as she's an
officer with the Seminole
Indian Tribe.
The Nyborgs moved to
Sebring four years ago after
they each retired. George
worked as a car salesman in
Bradenton, while Gail
worked at Sarasota Memorial
Hospital in the medical
records department. The cou-
ple married in 2000 after
George answered a personal
ad in the newspaper, one that
Gail had placed after her
friend dared her. Each has
children from a previous mar-
riage.
The Nyborgs haven't had a
chance to tell Gail's son
James about the trees as of.
yet, but that's partly because
he's been busy during his tour
of duty (which ends next
month). Purvis, who was
recently promoted from lieu-
tenant colonel to colonel, just

This is the first Christmas
the Nyborgs have recognized
their family in this way. The
highly patriotic nature of the
Thunderbird Hills South park
provided a good motivational
starting point.
"A lot of people in the park
wanted to honor the troops,"
George said. "It's kind of a
patriotic park." Gail agreed,
saying the tree program was a
"pretty neat" idea.
The couple said they've
already gotten several com-

their house. And with
Christmas approaching, the
couple is glad to show off
both their appreciation for
their country and the love
they have for their children.
With so many children serv-

another, the Nyborgs found
their ideal way to celebrate
this Christmas season.
"Why not have a red, white
and blue Christmas?'"
George said.

ranging from ages 3 months
to 15 years old.
"Wrapping the gifts makes
it a lot more fun for the kids
(who open them). That's what
it's all about the element of
surprise," said Sally Perry,
River Ridge Wranglers 4-H
Club leader.
The 4-H club members and
FFA students sorted and
selected gifts so each needy
child would get five presents
to open on Christmas Day.
"It's nice to help children
who don't get presents. We
(some local children) are so
greedy and there are kids out
there with no toys. for
Christmas," said Kacee
Eddington, River Ridge
Wranglers 4-H member and
treasurer. This is her second
year to participate in the toy
wrapping project.
Avon Park firefighter Rob
Remick, also the Toys for
Tots campaign chairperson,
said the firefighters try to
keep the number of children
served to be around 80 each
year. Last year there were 79
kids needing help.
Remick said families and
individuals will start coming
to the fire station Thursday to
pick up the packages.

loaded the fire truck with the gifts to store in the fire station
until the families arrive for pick up.


"I want to express how
great the 'help from the

us," Remick said. "They basi-
cally made this place run for

Highlands County had
63,000 acres of productive
groves in 2006, a 10-percent
decrease spread across the
preceding 10 years.
Much of that acreage was

"lost" a a misnomer due to
the canker eradication pro-

"The vast majority may

Royce. said, explaining the
state of real estate is shifting
back to agriculture. "That soil
is good for three things -


Pennsylvania," he said in
response to the structure
being consumed by the flames
quicker than he expected.
The general consensus
from the neighbors was that
the fire was arson, although
the fire is still under investi-

When Branca was asked if
it was arson, he said it was

with "what's expected of
them," Andrews said. The
Chamber is also planning to
have "stop-in safety meet-
ings" with parade entrants
prior to the event.
At Tuesday's City Council
meeting, Andrews also
addressed other problems
with this year's parade,
including issues with throw-
ing candy to spectators.
"The problem there is that
spectators run out from the
sidewalks to grab candy,"
Andrews said, which could
create safety issues for
entrants and bystanders alike.
The Chamber is also plan-
ning to address concerns


about tight corners on the
parade, route, and Andrews
said the Chamber will likely
cordon off certain areas from
spectators, primarily corners
on the Circle.
Yet another change being
explored is the possibility of
setting up bleachers in the
parking area in front of the
Courthouse. The idea was
devised as a way to address
concerns about the crowds
being so thick that some spec-
tators were having trouble
seeing.
"When people are stacked
10 to 12 deep, it's not very
conducive to a good experi-
ence," Andrews said. "I think
we came up with good steps
to.be proactive in our safety
approach, as well as making
the parade an enjoyable expe-
rience for spectators."

Trip to the Big Easy not so easy to take

Two-plus years after Hurricane Katrina, city still not recovered


I finally got a chance to take the trip
I have wanted to take my whole life. I
traveled to the Big Easy! Due to
Hurricane Katrina, the city was not the
same as I had imagined it to be for so
-many years.
.',- I used to think that my first trip to
New Orleans was going to be relaxing,
fun and informative. I always pictured
On My my trip there as a vacation filled with
.i gumbo, a band and the bayou. Instead,
Mmind i was a part of reconstructing this infa-
Georgia Dawkins mous city.
Our student government association
at Florida A&M Universty has organized five trips to New
Orleans since Katrina, but this was the first time I was
able to make it. I was really nervous about seeing things
two years later because I had heard that not much had
changed and it was true.
When we finally got on the bridge, I was so excited.
But the more we drove into the city, the more the pictures
I had seen on television came to life. The poverty and the
people were no longer images I avoided, they were now
tangible.
The first place we went was the Lower Ninth Ward. It
really hurt my heart to see where hundreds of families had
once called home, but now had no house to return to. The
thing that hit me the hardest was not the signs begging the
government to rebuild their town. Instead, it was a ran-
dom remote control lying between the frames of two
houses. All I could think was, "This came from someone's
home."
Later that day we went to a library and a church and
handed out some toys to the kids. They were so excited
and their little accents were so cute. We went to a field
nearby and played football with kids. I think the volun-
teers had more fun than the kids. We had a football team
and cheerleading team. Those cheerleaders knew more
cheers than I knew. Next, we went to an elementary
school and built a playground.
That night we had free time in the city, which gave me
an opportunity to actually enjoy the city without fighting
tears every five seconds. I know a producer at the NBC
affiliate station there who got me a free ticket to see the
New Orleans Hornets and the Phoenix Suns play. Then, he

Orlando, gets down to eye level in a huddle with neigh-

game between kids and FAMU students.

took me to get some authentic New Orleans gumbo and
jambalaya!
The next day we got up early and headed to the projects
to give out more toys to a different group of kids. This
was harder because it was cold and we had to knock on
doors. I thought it was a little silly and selfish that no one
really wanted to knock on doors because they were
scared. I was scared, too, but we had a job to do.
The first door I knocked on almost broke me down. It
was a very small apartment and a little boy opened the
door. There were three other children in the apartment;
they were all sitting on a loveseat with a blanket. It
looked like they had been sleeping there.
Most of the kids we talked to throughout the trip were
not even enrolled in school and that broke my heart. I
wish there was more I could do to give back, but until I
figure it out I will continue to do what I can.
The trip to the "Big Easy" was not so easy and it made
me very appreciative of the things I already have. Most of
all it gave me a new admiration for my life and my fami-
ly.
Georgia Dawkins of Sebring is a journalism student at Florida
A&M University.

since moved into a trailer where this memorial is in place.

Looming catastrophe
in the making
Editor:
It is good that our county leaders are
seeking sound suggestions for the future
growth of our county. It would have
been more significant if they had actual-
ly accepted and followed through on
suggestions in the last five years.
For instance, a number of citizens had
pleaded for alternate arterial roads par-
allel to U.S. 27. There are still no
through arterial roads unless you count
the Sebring Parkway, which has a num-
ber of traffic lights and is a number of
years from completion north of Avon
-- Park. Even the 2025-year by-pass from
south Sebring will stretch west into
Hardee County and come back to U.S.
27 in Polk County.
Great concern had been expressed
about development in wetlands and
flood plains to no avail. The recent deci-
sion to rebuild State Road 8 at twice the
cost because of the low-lying topogra-
phy apparently ignored that concern.
SEven after the county government
bought a number of houses, in that area
a. due to flooding, the county commission
- approved another permit to build in
Venus.
The fact that some areas in this coun-
ty are undevelopable apparently is not a
logical deterrent to development. The
issue of conserving water, run-off, etc.,
has been in the news recently and the
related agencies have expressed concern
about employing a number of measures
to achieve that goal. This includes pre-
venting pollution of our lakes. Rain run-
off must have a place (wetlands and
flood plains) where it can be filtered
into the aquifer.
Thus, it would behoove the county
commission to revisit those concerns
and actually employ those valid meas-
ures when approving developers'
requests with appropriate restrictions.
No one has the right to develop property
when it will damage others' property.
This has occurred a number of times
when new sites are filled at higher lev-
s and els than existing home sites.
cally One more concern is the cramming of
more and more units to the acre. As one
SWe drives or flies across this country, one
cannot but notice the density of units
FL whether they be in urban, suburban or
or e- rural areas. Florida already has 17-plus
million residents and will reach 18 mil-
lumn lion in about five years. What with the
water issue the run-off of billions of
gallons of water into the Atlantic and


the Gulf, plus the drawing of more bil-
lions from the aquifer there is a
looming catastrophe in the making.
Highlands County has already faced
the "pilfering" of its aquifer by entities
elsewhere in the state. That and mass
development of multiple units statewide
will significantly diminish the qualities
of life here that enticed those 17-plus
millions already here. Will that happen
in Highlands County? Therefore, com-
prehensive analysis of a suitable Growth
Plan is definitely warranted. This does
not include penalizing those who are
already here; e.g.: developers should
pay for the infrastructure demands .they
create (impact fees).

Decision to move to Lake
Placid a correct one.
Editor:
To the town of Lake Placid:
One year ago my family moved away
from Miami to find a better environment
to raise our family. On the night of Dec.
17, we discovered how right we were in
choosing the town of Lake Placid.-
We lost everything in the fire that
consumed our house at 367 Carole Road
N.W. but we gained an overwhelming
sense of community. The efforts made
by both the Lake Placid Volunteer Fire
Department and the Placid Lakes
Volunteer Fire Department was an act
we thought deserved acknowledgment.
They disregarded personal safety to
retrieve the only item of any value to
my family, my little brother's ashes that
had passed only a year ago. However,
they did not stop there. They continued
going back into the house despite the
fire's refusal to be put out or the roof
collapsing all around them. For hours
they fought that Phoenix and the cold
weather of that evening's frost to help a
family they did not know try to maintain
a home they no longer recognized.
Even while we were all aware that all
was lost they did not quit until the last
ember was out. They came to us later
and handed us pictures they had man-
aged to rescue while dowsing flames.
My family and I could not believe that
these fire personnel were all volunteers.
It is almost unheard of nowadays to
have the kind of community-based men-
tality we have been experiencing since
our tragedy. We have had an over-
whelming amount of people come out to


offer assistance and we wanted to
acknowledge them as well. We really
appreciate all thle support and offer of
support that we have gotten but would
like nothing more than to assure all
those who wish us well that we will be
all right. However, we would like to say
that there are people who live daily with
situations similar to the one we find
ourselves in right now and would like to
suggest that all those who wish to help
us will do so by locating and helping
them. We are sure no community is
more capable and willing to do just that.
We are not sure what the cause is for
such exceptional behavior or an excep-
tional sense of unity but no one excels
like the town of Lake Placid.
Please accept our deepest gratitude
and let us share as newcomers in the
pride of knowing we live in a town that
breeds heroes.

Several help to keep Scrooge
away from Arc

Editor:
Ridge Area Arc has been able to pro-
vide services to the Highlands County
area for 50 years, thanks to the support
of this wonderful and generous commu-
nity. We have one more thing to be
thankful for during this Christmas sea-
son.
Arc has an annual Christmas
Luncheon for the individuals they serve.
This event is special to everyone and
people look forward to it every year.
This year, however, because of financial
cutbacks, it looked like Scrooge was
going to spoil the luncheon. Fortunately
this did not happen because of the
financial assistance from the Bank of
America Associate Disability Affinity
Group, Cross Country Automotive
Services, and the Ridge Area Arc
Parents Group.
The luncheon was held at Quality Inn
& Suites, which also helped make this
event happen. A big thank you also goes
to deejay Art Bostick for donating his
time for music before and after the
luncheon.
To these special people and the rest of
Highlands County, thank you for help-
ing Arc help others.

used as gifts to the veterans who are patients at Bay Pines VA medical center.

IP Woman's Club donates to veterans


By MARY MARGARET STAIK
Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Elaine Adelmann, presi-
dent of the Lake Placid General Federation
Woman's Club, along with members of the
organization donated Christmas cards to be
delivered to the veterans who are patients at
Bay Pines Medical Center in St. Petersburg.
Along with the cards, the Woman's (Club
donated bags of brand new white athletic
socks for the veterans. The Veteran Services
Office staff began counting the pairs of socks
that were in one of the boxes. There were well


over 100 pairs.
One of the members of the Woman's Club
crocheted small Santa faces, complete with the
red hat and white beard, and all sporting a lit-
tle pom-pom at the tail of the hat. A pin is
included so the veterans can pin the cheery
face on their clothes or privacy curtain.
The donated items will be delivered to Bay
Pines by the volunteer-DAV drivers.
The Veteran Services Office serves as the
distribution center for donated supplies for the
veterans. The office hours are 7 a.m. to 6
p.m., Monday-Friday.


Veterans Affairs, military fast track education benefits


Special to the News-Sun
The Department of Veterans Affairs
recently announced it has dramatically
improved its ability to process applica-
tions for GI Bill education benefits from
veterans and service members.
For first-time recipients of educational
benefits, the average processing time
decreased from 40 days in 2006 to 32
days in 2007.
'Claims from veterans requesting assis-


tance for subsequent school terms or
additional training programs are now
being processed in an average of 13 days,
down from 20 days in 2006.
The VA de ;eloped short-term strate-
gies for immediately processing more
claims. The VA created a call center to
respond to customer service calls, allow-
ing more time for additional employees
to process education claims.
:"" permanent call center is scheduled


to open in early 2008 at VA's Regional
Processing Office in Muskogee, Okla.
The VA has also developed programs
that promote self-service among GI Bill
users.
Services that once demanded the atten-
tion of VA employees can now be
obtained online.
For more information on VA education
benefits, go to, VA's education Web. i te sr
www.gibill.vya.-gov.


Special to the News-Sun
New caregiver assistance
pilot programs are being set
up at eight sites around the
country to expand and
improve health care education
and provide needed training
and resources for caregivers
who assist disabled and aging
veterans in their homes.
The Veterans Administra-
tion provides support and
assistance through a variety
of programs such as care
management, social work
service, care coordination,
geriatrics and extended care,
and through its nationwide
volunteer programs.
Among the key services
provided to caregivers are
transportation, respite care,
case management and service
coordination, assistance with
personal care (bathing and
grooming), social and emo-
tional support, and home
safety evaluations.
Education programs teach
caregivers how to obtain
community resources such as
legal assistance, financial
support, and housing assis-
tance, as well as home deliv-
ered meals and spiritual sup-
port. In addition, caregivers
are taught skills such as time
management techniques,
medication management,
communication skills with the
medical staff and the veteran,
and ways to take better care
of themselves.
Many of the projects use
technology, including com-
puters, Web-based training,
video conferencing, and tele-
conferencing to support the
needs of caregivers who often
.cannot leave their homes to
participate in support activi-
ties.
At the VA medical center in
Gainesville caregivers will
take part in a transition assis-
tance ^program to provide


skills training, education and
supportive problem solving
using videophone technology.
The Tampa VA Medical
Center and the Miami VA
Healthcare System are work-
ing on a collaborative project.
In the Tampa area, the current
program will be expanded to
provide 24-hour in-home
respite care to relieve tem-
pora.rily caregivers up to 14
days a year. In Miami, the
program will coordinate com-
prehensive community-based
care services, including
respite, home companions,
adult day care and use of
emergency response system.
The VA will evaluate these
pilot programs before initiat-
ing long-term plans to pro-
vide the caregiver programs
through all their VA medical
facilities.

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.

Advent candle, which
reminds everyone of the light
of the stars in the sky, which
guided the wise-men to Jesus,

Matthew.
In the Advent wreath, the
three candles already lit
remind us of the expectation,
preparation, and proclamation
of His coming. Doug Golden,
Delora's father, will read the
Scripture John 1:1-5. Church
member Arlene Golden is
Delora's grandmother.

'Christmas Shoes'
movie to be shown
AVON PARK On
Sunday, Avon Park First
Presbyterian Church A.R.P.
will show the matinee-
movie-of-the-month, "The
Christmas Shoes," in fellow-
ship hall at 4 p.m. This
movie stars Rob Lowe and
Kimberly Williams and
"finds humor in an emotional
story," quotes the LA Times.
It is a beautiful and excit-
ing film that the entire family
will enjoy, demonstrating
that if we're open to it, the
smallest of miracles can
change lives. After a 10-year-
old Nathan Andrews learns
that this will be his mother's
(Kimberly Williams, 'Father
of the Bride') last Christmas,
he decides to buy her a spe-
cial gift. As Nathan sets out
on the quest, fate puts him in'
the path of Robert Layton
(Golden Globe nomineee Rob
Lowe, 'The West Wing'), an
overworked attorney who has
forgotten to make time for
his family. It's the boy's love
for his mother that inspires
Robert to reconnect with
what's truly important in his
life.
Popcorn and sodas will be
served along with the
always-full candy bowl. The
public is invited. There is no
charge. Avon Park First
Presbyterian Church is at 215
E. Circle St. on the shore of
Lake Verona with two
entrances on La Grande
Street. Fellowship Hall
entrance is on La Grande
Street. Plenty of parking, too.

The Key Club at Sebring High School completed its annual Christmas canned food drive. In
2007 the club collected 1,000 cans that were passed on to the Salvation Army, which dis-
tributed them to needy families and individuals in Highlands County. This year, however, the
response was even greater. Students brought in over 2,000 cans of food, which will again, be
given to the Salvation Army to distribute. Here members of the Key Club are joined by Doris
Miller and Troy Williams' first period classes. Miller's students did the bulk of the collecting,
going from class to class every morning; Williams' class brought in the largest number of
cans.

Perkins moves on at Circle of Honor


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK With a
saddened ado, and a look
toward the future, former
head football coach Earnest
Perkins held his 27th Circle
of Honor, calling "Step to
the light!" .one last time in
the high school auditorium
Friday, Dec.'14.
The Circle of Honor is a
program where he thanks
the parents and boosters for
their support, and sort of rit-
ual where seniors are given
advice and praise and are
helping them move into
adulthood.
Perkins, released after a
controversial season and 1-9
record this past season,
encouraged the parents and
players to keep their head
up and not to hold any bit-
terness.
"High school football
comes and goes, and there
are usually some good mem-
ories, but life goes on," he
said. "Don't let it die. Don't
let the new coach come in
here and say 'to hell with
study hall.' I am calling out
to all the parents to help
these programs live on."
Keynote speaker Bruce
Hoffman, who was there to
talk about college recruit-
ment, changed his presenta-
tion slightly to honor
Perkins last program.
"I knew him back at the
beginning during his Dade
County days, and he always


took the time for me and the
kids," Hoffman said. "Coach
holds a special place in my
heart, and I felt I had to
come here tonight to show
that. He brings with him
where ever he goes a desire
to be successful in life, and
this program is an awe
inspiring ceremony."
Perkins' program stressed
academics and education
before football, a doctrine
some in the Avon Park com-
munity did not buy into, and
held his players to a stan-
dard higher than those
required by the school dis-
trict.
The recent release of
Perkins 'sparked a few prais-
es and some harsh letters to
the editor.
Kathy McKibben, who
served as a booster member,
spoke for those who sup-
ported Perkins.
"I am so, sorry to see him
leave," she said during the
ceremony. "He did so much
for the kids, and I don't
think the people in the com-
munity see or appreciate
that."
"It hasn't hit me yet that
he isn't the coach anymore,
even though I am graduat-
ing," graduating senior and
defensive captain Fred
Mixon said. "He was more
than just a coach to all his
players. I feel blessed that I
was a part of this and his
last Circle."


Perkins took the reigns in
2006, and immediately
began a rigorous program of
discipline and academics -
getting each player out of
bed at 6:30 a.m. for training
and requiring a study hall
-before practice.
"If they had to go to
work, they would have to
get up;" Perkins said. "I am
just teaching them early
what life expects.".
Closing out the night,
several assistant coaches
and parent Fred Mixon Sr.,
who also served as the pres-
ident of the booster club,
spoke to the audience prais-
ing Perkins.
"He made men out these
boys. I know that several of
the parents here aren't being
called about failing grades
anymore, and I know that
the mornings were tough at
first. I myself thought they
were a little too much, but I
bet you don't have to get
your boy up anymore, he's
already up."
Looking toward the
future, Perkins has already
accepted a position at Sun
'N Lakes Elementary
School.
"Please don't be bitter, I
know that everything hap-
pens for a reason, and God
was ready fro me to move
on," Perkins said before
concluding, "I am glad to
still be working with the
kids, I really love the kids."

Thing...

Sebring stays hot,




topping Palmetto


News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE
Sebring's Daniel Grimaldo is head and shoulders above
these Palmetto defenders during the Blue Streaks 4-1 win
Thursday night. Grimaldo accounted for two goals in the vic-
tory.


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING The Blue
Streaks kept on their current
streak in Thursday night
with a 4-1 win over visiting
Palmetto at Firemen's Field.
That makes 10 games in a
row without
Sebring a loss, with
Sebring
going 8-0-2
over that
Palmetto span, push-
1 ing them to
the top of the
district
standings
along with the Tigers they
just declawed.
"That was just a fabulous
game," head coach Paul
Brown said afterward.
But it was Palmetto that
got on the board first, and
quickly, getting out on top
1-0 at third minute of the
first half.


"They got that one,"
Brown said. "We didn't
check him and they took
advantage."
It would take a while for
Sebring (10-4-2, 6-1-1) to
get on track, but they had
earlier opportunities, as a
penalty kick at 15:10 of the
half sailed wide right.
But it was a Daniel
Grimaldo penalty kick as
the first half was ending that
broke the ice.
"That one we got before
the half ended really got us
turned around," Brown said.
And it sure looked like the
momentum carried over as
just 40 seconds into the last
40 minutes Gilberto Santos
worked his way in and got
the ball just over the goal
line to put the Streaks on top.
It would take another 19
minutes for Sebring to add
to the lead, but the goal was
worth the wait.


'That was just a

fabulous game.'


PAUL BROWN
Sebring head coach

Nicholas Peters, streaking
down the right side, ripped a
bender that went over the
Palmetto keepers' out-
stretched, leaping arms and
found net in the upper, left
front corner of the goal.
That score might well
have been topped by
Grimaldo's effort in the
games waning minutes.
From ten yards out,
Grimaldo blasted one that
was deflected twice first
by a sliding Tiger and then
again by the Palmetto keep-
er.
See STREAKS, page 3D


It's all just a

matter of time

The dueling columns by the
father-son team of John and
Daniel Bedell in Wednesday's
edition got me to thinking.
It's an argument that goes on
all the time in sports conversa-
tions which team was the best
of all time.
Or, perhaps more appropri-
ately, how to compare the great
teams and athletes of today to
those of times gone by?
Daniel's slant on it is usually
the most popular comeback for
those favoring the current
teams and players.
That considering how much
bigger, stronger and faster ath-
letes are these days, it would be
hard for the players of yester-
year to really compete.
With advances in training,
equipment and, ahem, supple-
ments, the athletes of today are,
in fact, bigger, stronger and
faster.
Think Dolphin center Jim
Langer (6-foot, 2-inch, 257-
pounds) would have a tough
time blocking Patriot defensive
lineman Richard Seymour (6-
foot, 6-inches, 310-pounds)?
Or that Miami defensive
tackle Bob Heinz (6-6, 260)
would have a hard time getting
past New England lineman
Ryan O'Callaghan (6-7, 330)?
That's not to say they have
more natural ability though.
What occurred to me is that
you can't make the comparison
across time by leaving those
players and their teams in their
times.
If you dare to compare, what
you'd need to do is put the
players ability in today's world.
Jim Langer comes up in the
modern times, and you don't
think he be a bigger, stronger
version of his '72 self?
Or if Seymour was playing
back in the day, growing up as
they did back then, and he'd be
of a size that was more normal
for the time.
In that sense, the whole size,
strength and speed differences
are canceled out and it becomes
about raw ability on an even
playing field.
And actually, looking at the
respective sizes of the players,
the differences aren't all that
huge anyway.
Patriot linebackers Junior
Seau and Teddy Bruschi go 6-
3, 250 and 6-1, 247, as com-
pared to the Dolphins' Doug
Swift (6-3, 226) and Nick
Buoniconti (5-11, 220).
And Miami running back
Larry Csonka went 6-3, 237 -
more than an easy takedown

This Blue Streak gets a mouthful of a Tiger's arm, but it was
Sebring taking Thursday night's game, 4-1, over visiting
Palmetto.


LADIES
Continued from 1D
defense, but the aggressive
offensive plays were what
made the big difference was
for the Lady Devils.
Landers and Sheila Figuero,
who scored Avon Park's sec-
ond goal before the half, con-
tinually pushed the issue in the
last forty minutes, but
Sebring's senior keeper Becca
Secory held her ground.
"Their keeper (Secory)
made two excellent saves that
kept us from winning the
game. She's a very good


player," commented Thacker.
One of those saves Secory
stopped was a tough one on
one penalty kick just after the
60-minute mark slammed at
her by Figuero.
"Becca saved the game for
us both times," said
Ashley. "I thought that PK
was in there for sure. We were
fortunate to have a tie because
of that."
The Lady Streaks face the
Green Dragons in Lake Placid
tonight while the Lady Devils
don't play again until they
face Lake Wales on Tuesday,
Jan. 8.

Storm sweeps to ISA




State Championship


Special to the News-Sun *
ORLANDO The Sebring
Storm went 6-0 for the week-
end allowing just five runs
(three unearned) while plat-
ing 52 in cruising to the 14-U
ISA Winterfest State title.
The Storm opened the sin-
gle elimination tourney by
blasting the Polk County
Twisters 16 0, followed by a
4-1 victory over the Lake
Wales Highlanders and fin-
ished up the seed rounds with
an 18 2 thrashing of the
Orlando Flames.
This put (he Storm as the
second seed for Sunday's
elimination round.
"We played very well on
Saturday allowing only three
runs. two of which were
unearned," head coach
Mickey Pack said. "Our pitch-
ers struck out 21 batters while
walking just two and our bats
pounded out 28 hits."
Championship Sunday
started with a rematch against
the Orlando Flames who the


Storm had beaten badly the
night before the Storm pre-
vailed again, 9-0;
Then it was on to face the
Quad City Attack from West
Palm Beach.
The Storm continued to
roll, defeating them 5-0.
This win sent the Sebring
softballers to the champi-
onship game where they
would face the #1 seed
Clearwater Bullets.
The Storm seemed to be the
better team, with better pitch-
. ing in a pitchers duel and the
tides turning quickly.
Starting pitcher Chelle
Smith from Frostproof was
only able to face two batters,
however, because of an injury
to her .thigh suffered earlier.
Starting catcher Wendy
Negrin of Sebring was also
lost to injury after the second
hitter when her chin strap
snatched a tooth out and she
was sent to the emergency
room.


This put the team down to
10 players, three more of
whom were also banged up.
The walking Wounded
included Melissa Lanier from
Bartow who finished the
game on the mound gutting
out the pain from an earlier
collision.
"We now had players out of
normal position," Pack said.
"But boy how they performed
defensively. Chelsey Steedley
caught, Dino Lower made two
great plays at short, Kaitlyn
Ostrander made a bases-
loaded diving catch in center
to end and inning and Haley
Pack made two great digs at
first to the dirt keep us in it
defensively.
The Storm was still down
3-2, however, when time
expired.
As the home team they
were about to have their final
at bat just three more outs to
go.
Shana Bassett led off with a

State Championship last weekend in Orlando.


walk, Kaitlyn Ostrander sin-
gled sharply to left, putting
the winning run on first and
bringing Chelle Smith at the
plate.
"With Chelle being hurt
and not able to run we had to
try and bunt the runners over
and allow Haley Pack, who
was two-for-two and on deck
to drive in the needed runs,"


Pack said of the crucial strate-
gy.
Smith bunted two foul and
with the infield back she
caught them off guard by
bunting again.
The ensuing throw to first
sailed into the right-field cor-
ner and both runners came
around to score for the 4-3
victory and the ISA


Winterfest State title.
"We wanted this bad we
had made a list of goals
before the season and a
state tourney win was one of
them," Pack said. "We as
coaches could not be more
proud of these girls and the
parents for the time, travel
and all the dedication they
show."

TIME
Continued from 1D
for any Patriot defender.
But again, it goes to the times
they played in, the training and
equipment, that were available
then, as compared to now.
The argument is not about


ability, it is about timing and
that, just like the argument,
cannot be truly settled.
And so it will go on but for
my money, I still go with the
'85 Bears but I'm a little
biased.
As we all are when it comes
to these discussions, time after
time.
