Facts, symptoms and

advice about depression

Is Who is at risk of depression?
Everyone, regardless of age, income, class,
sex, race or creed is at risk of depression. The
most common risk factor is a family history
of the illness. In addition, people who under-
go catastrophes, extremely stressful situa-
tions, abuse, serious illnesses or the death of a
loved one are at higher risk.

2a What are the symptoms?
Symptoms of depression in adults include:
Persistent sad, anxious or "empty" mood
Sleeping too much or too little and middle-
of-the-night or early-morning wakening
Reduced appetite and weight loss, or
increased appetite and weight gain
Loss of pleasure and interest in activities
once enjoyed, including sex
Restlessness, irritability
Persistent physical symptoms that do not
respond to treatment, such as chronic pain or
digestive disorder
N Difficulty concentrating, remembering or
making decisions
Fatigue or loss of energy
N Feeling guilty, hopeless or worthless
U Thoughts of suicide or death
Anyone who has five or more of these
symptoms for two weeks or longer may have
clinical depression and should see a doctor or
a qualified mental-health professional.

31 Do the symptoms of depression dif-
fer in children and adolescents than
those experienced by adults?
Symptoms of depression seen in
i, 0,, 1 and adolescents:
Frequent sadness, tearfulness or crying
1 Feelings of hopelessness
0 Withdrawal from friends and activities
1 Lack of enthusiasm, energy or motivation
Major changes in eating or sleeping habits
1 Increased irritability, hostility or rage
8 Indecision or inability to concentrate
Recurring thoughts or talk of death and
suicide or self-destructive behavior
In addition, children who are depressed may
show the following signs:
M Frequent physical complaints such as
headaches and stomachaches
i Feelings of worthlessness or excessive
guilt
Extreme sensitivity to rejection or failure
Pattern of dark images in drawings or
paintings
Play that involves excessive aggression
directed toward oneself or others or that
involves persistently sad themes
Adolescents with depression may exhibit:
I Poor performance in school
Overreaction to criticism
i Feeling unable to satisfy ideals
Poor self-esteem or guilt
8 Restlessness and agitation
Substance abuse
U Problems with authority
Suicidal thoughts or actions
Diagnosing mental illness in children and
adolescents is difficult. If these symptoms are
causing problems, parents should seek profes-
sional help.

4a Do seniors have different symptoms
as well?
The symptoms among seniors are the
same as those in all other adults, but they fre-
quently go unnoticed and untreated when
they occur with other illnesses or life events.
Although depression is not a normal part of
the aging process, other illnesses and physical
health conditions can trigger it. For example,
one-quarter of the 600,000 people who expe-
rience a stroke also experience clinical
depression. Such illnesses as Alzheimer's dis-
ease, Parkinson's, heart disease, cancer and
arthritis also can trigger symptoms of clinical
depression. Individuals who are 65 and older
commit 20 percent of all suicides in the
United States, although only 13 percent of the
U.S. population is over 65. Therefore, early
recognition and treatment are crucial.

5. Do men and women have different
symptoms?
Although the basic symptoms are the same,
men may exhibit their symptoms in a different
way than women. For example, men may be

Just about everybody knows
that the holidays come with
extra stress.
Not that stress is a bad thing
by itself, Glenn Simpson says. In
fact, stress is often useful, even
necessary as a motivator.
Simpson is a licensed psy-
chotherapist and the executive
director of Florida Hospital's
Daybreak Center in Lake Placid.
For most emotionally well-bal-
anced people, he said,
Thanksgiving, Christmas and New
Year celebrations are as much
pleasure as work.
But the hectic pace of the holi-
days, with their deadlines and extra
chores cooking and baking,
hauling decorations out of storage,
climbing ladders, choosing and
shopping for gifts, rushing out to
parties, having family and friends


visiting means regular routines
and normal schedules go out the
window.
Sleep patterns are interrupted.
Food and alcohol are over-
indulged. Too much sugar and not
enough fiber, rest or exercise can
all combine to throw people out of
whack.
But for the most part, Simpson
said, people understand that the
holidays will pass into pleasurable
memory and that life will return to
its comfortable routine on Jan. 2 -
the few pounds gained can be lost,
the January bills can be paid.
But for some people, the holiday
stresses and changes in routine can
trigger a more serious depression.
That means feelings of helpless-
ness and hopelessness, a dread and
emptiness, with a powerful sense
that nothing will ever change.
This is more common among


individuals who have suffered a
recent loss, or are celebrating a
holiday for the first time without a
loved one, are dealing with a pro-
found change, or are at risk for
mental illness.
The sense of loss could come
from the death of a loved one, or a
divorce or the fact that grown chil-
dren, for the first time, aren't com-
ing home for Christmas.
It can also be a result of the
aging process, or an illness that
incapacitates.
For example, someone realizing
that their arthritis means they can
no longer sign and address
Christmas cards the way they used
to, or they can no longer manage to
climb out onto the roof to position
the reindeer decorations, or hear
the carolers singing.
Depression may manifest itself

Samaritan's Touch
Care Center a huge
success in 1st year -
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Diana Furr
can't stop smiling these days.
In fact, she radiates joy and
well being.
And why not? This time
last year Samaritan's Touch
Care Center was months
away from an uncertain open-
ing, yet at every turn, at every
crossroads, whatever was
needed materialized at exact-
ly the right moment.
Some people would say the
center was lucky. Furr knows
better.
Samaritan's Touch is God
sent, she says, her eyes
sparkling as she says it.
In just more than six
months, 418 new patients
have made over 1,700 visits
to 50 doctors practicing in 15
different specialties, saving
the two local hospitals more
than $2 million in emergency
room costs alone.
Even better, several indi-
viduals have received life-
saving care, and one woman's
sight has been saved.
The enterprise is nothing
short of a miracle, Furr said
to a visitor recently.
As proof she pointed to a
large customized Bluebird
Bus, parked in the center's
parking lot. It is only the
most recent of God's bless-
ings, she said.
The bus was the Florida
Baptist's Mobile Dental Van.
A completely self-sustaining
dental office, including two
operatories with everything
needed to handle emergency
situations.
Manned by local volunteer
dentists and their staffs, the
van can handle up to 18
patients a day. Best, this is

Florida Highway Trooper Jay Spencer (above) surveys a
convertible crushed during a rollover accident on U.S.
27 just south of Sebring Lakes. The convertible blew a
tire and careened into the median, where it rolled over
two times late in the afternoon Monday. The driver and
passenger left the scene before emergency workers
arrived. Spencer said it was an excellent lesson for peo-
ple to slow down. Just about an hour later, emergency
responders (below) were waiting for the Florida Highway
Patrol to arrive as they checked out the interior of a
Honda CRV which tumbled off U.S. 98. It rolled twice
before coming to a stop. No one was injured. One other
car was involved, and the accident remained under
investigation at press time.

Bomb threat at Circuit City a hoax


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING Recession is a
word that's been at the nation-
al forefront over the past few
months. A major factor in
recessions has always been
the confidence level of con-
sumers. And in today's mar-
ket, with rising oil prices, a
crashing housing market, and
a volatile stock market, confi-
dence isn't exactly at its high-
est.
So should we be worried?
Two prominent members of
the local financial industry
say no.
"Personally, I don't believe
we're headed for a recession,"
said Craig Johnson, President
of Heacock Financial Group
and Branch Manager for
Raymond James Financial.
"We have a slowing economy,
but not a recession."
The assessment of Alan
Holmes, Financial Advisor
for Edward Jones, is similar.
"It's hard to say, but I'd be
careful to say recession is
imminent," Holmes said,
adding that with the average
recession lasting 10 months,
we might not even realize it's
happening until it ends. "By
the time you know you're in
one, it's over. Really, it begins
and ends without warning."
Johnson cited high interest
rates, oil prices and the hous-
ing slowdown as key factors
in the slowing economy.
Holmes agreed, citing a
"domino effect" of the afore-
mentioned factors.
From a local standpoint,
both Johnson and Holmes
said the county won't feel the
effects of the economic slow-
down nearly as much as other
areas, particularly the coastal
areas of Florida. Both men
expect the county to continue
its growth because of the
area's cheaper cost of living.
"From conversations I've
had, Highlands County is a
little better off," Johnson
said. "Taxes and insurance are
a lot less here. I think we will
benefit more when the market
comes back."
Holmes said the county's


'We have a slowing
economy, but not a
recession.'
CRAIG JOHNSON
financial advisor

size also has an impact.
"In a county like this, we're
a little slower to feel the
effects, but we do feel them,"
Holmes said, "Sebring isn't a
battleship that takes a lot of
work to turn around. We're a
tugboat. Because of our size
we can recover more quick-
ly."
Sebring's lack of a major
industry is a problem, but the
advantage of that is the coun-
ty doesn't have to absorb a
company laying off a massive
amount of workers at all once.
"When the economy goes
haywire, we don't really
react," Holmes said. "We
have a more desirable place to
live. We're still a community,
and that's a plus."
That being said, both
Johnson and Holmes have
seen an increasing concern
among their clients as to the
state of the economy, espe-
cially over the past few
months. They both cited a
negative business media as
one factor, and Johnson went
further in saying the subprime
loan issue, generally cited as
a contributing factor in the
slowing economy, "has been
blown way, way out of pro-
portion."
Johnson tells his clients to
avoid making rash decisions,
especially when it comes to
investing.
"I tell clients not to panic,
because investment deals
done out of panic are not
good," he said.
Similarly, Holmes advises
his clients to take a longer
view and to avoiding fretting
over the short-term market
outlook.
"You have to try not to out-
guess the market and stay in a
long-term view," Holmes
said. He recommends review-
ing your investment goals and
taking a long-term view when


it comes to investments, and
added that diversification is
always a key in minimizing
any adverse financial impacts
of a slow economy, .
"When you have quality
and diversification, that really
helps you get through," he
said. "Talk to your advisor
about short-, medium- and
long-term goals. Look at
opportunities, because there
are good things out there."
Despite warnings about the
current state of the stock mar-
ket, Holmes said investors
should look at the current
slowdown as an opportunity
- especially since stocks
actually rose in seven of the
last 11 recessions.
"At Wal-Mart, a sale is
good, but when Wall Street
has sales, people get out,"
Holmes said. "That's not the
right strategy. You should be
looking to get in when it's
low. Now, it's a decent sale"
Most forecasts call for the
current slowdown to last at
least another year. But when
the time comes for the eco-
nomic uptick, some tell-tale
signs locally will include
growing employment and an
increase in home sales.
But whether we're truly in
a recession or not, Holmes'
advice is simple: "Don't over-
react, don't panic,.and under-
stand we've had recessions
before."

Press was used in this story.


Coalition for

Homeless gets

federal funding
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING A record num-
ber of local homeless programs
across America will receive an
unprecedented $1.5 billion in
Continuum of Care grants
announced by the U.S.
Department of Housing and
Urban Development.
Two of the nearly 6,000 proj-
ects receiving funds are here in
Highlands County. The
Highlands County Coalition for
the Homeless, Inc. was award-
ed $39,309 in support of their
six-county Homeless
Management Information
System (HMIS).
Agency for Community
Treatment Services, Inc.
(ACTS) was awarded $166,667
for their homeless scattered
leasing project in Highlands
County.
"HMIS hasn't been funded
since 2005," says Richard
Reinhardt, Executive Director
of the Coalition.
"This is very good news for
us and our community, and par-
ticularly the homeless that we
serve."
ACTS operates a scattered
leasing program in Highlands
County where they operate a
permanent housing program for
families with disabilities. Terri
McClelland is their regional
case manager and works with
approximately 17 families,
ensuring their needs are met.
ACTS is based out of Tampa
and has many programs scat-
tered across Hillsborough,
Manatee and Polk Counties
that include Juvenile Drug
Treatment, Youth Outpatient
Services, and various
Community Support Services.
Within the past year, the
Highlands County Coalition for
the Homeless began adminis-
tering the Low Income Energy
Assistance Program (LIHEAP)

Scantily dressed Santa arrested for DUI


Associated Press
LOS ANGELES Some
gifts from Kris Kringle are
better kept wrapped.
A man in a Santa hat was
arrested Sunday night for
investigation of drunken driv-
ing after he was spotted out-
side Grauman's Chinese
Theater in Hollywood wear-
ing a wig, a red lace camisole
and a purple G-string, police
said.
"We are pretty sure this is
not the Santa Claus," Deputy


Chief Ken Garner said.
The suspect was booked
into jail after his blood-alco-
hol level measured just above
the state's legal limit of .08,
police said.
He was later released on
$5,000 bail.
The man, who is 6 feet 4
inches tall and weighs 280
pounds, also wore black leg
warmers and black shoes.
His car was towed to an
impound yard after his arrest,
police said.

A Christmas Eve bomb threat at Circuit City closed the store for more than an hour
While officers from the Highlands County Sheriff's Office searched the store and a
suspicious U-Haul truck outside. A woman was taken into custody for an unrelated
charge of writing a fraudulent check at the store, but the two incidents were thought to
be more than coincidental, said Lt. Jess Purvis of the HCSO. No bomb was found and
the threat is under investigation.

Highlands County students

earn spots on Will Dean's list


Special to the News-Sun
BABSON PARK -
Webber International
University has released the
Dean's List for the fall semes-
ter of 2007. The following
students from Highlands
County were recognized:
Avon Park Aldo
Cendejas, Megan Murphy,
Vidannys Rivera and Diana
Rodriguez
Lake Placid Juan
DeJesus and Ryan Hathaway
Sebring Yini Esquilin,
Melissa Gray, Roneka
McQueen, Christopher
Pinson and Gabrielle Turner
"When you can be as
involved as our students are
and still make spectacular
grades, your future is pretty
bright indeed," said Dr. Keith


Wade, executive vice-presi-
dent of WIU.
President Rex R. Yentes
said, "We are very proud of
these students for earning this
recognition. We know they
will be very successful."
Founded in 1927, recog-
nized by the Princeton
Review as an "America's Best
Value" and "Best in the
Southeast" college and
accredited by the Southern
Association of Colleges and
Schools and the International
Assembly for Collegiate
Business Education, Webber
International University is an
independent, not-for-profit
private university offering
associate's, bachelor's and
master's degrees exclusively
in the areas of business.


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Starting in August
2008, Highlands County high school stu-
dents in 10th, 11th, and 12th grades will
be able to complete their required high
school courses while they train for a
technical career in a single location: The
Career Academy at South Florida
Community College.
Located on SFCC's Highlands
Campus, The Career Academy at SFCC
is a new venture of the School Board of
Highlands County and the college's
Division of Applied Sciences and
Technologies. Students will spend a half
day in standard academic classes, taught
by school district teachers, and a half
day in college-level technical courses
taught by SFCC instructors.
"The Career Academy is where we
will make the core courses of math, sci-
ence, social studies, and language arts
come alive demonstrating real world
applications as we teach students how


Students can get technical
training and high school
diploma at the same time
to apply the concepts they learn in the
classroom to the skills they build in the
technical area of their choice," John H.
Rousch, coordinator, Career and
Technical Education, School Board of
Highlands County, said.
"In this way, geometry comes alive
through drafting, ratio and proportions
become relevant in culinary arts, and
reading skills are reinforced as students
pull out information from the technical
manuals that explain the technology we
use today."
"The Career Academy at SFCC is the
right thing to do for the youth in our
county," Kevin Brown, dean, SFCC
Division of Applied Sciences and
Technologies, said. "It will give them the
best of both worlds by training them in


college-level, high-wage, high-skill
areas while teaching them the fundamen-
tal academics required for success in
today's world."
The Career Academy of SFCC is an
extension of the Early College/Dual
Enrollment program with the advantage
that students eliminate travel time by
spending the full school day at the
Highlands Campus. Costs are deferred
for tuition and books. By undergoing
technical training while in high school,
students can earn a diploma while com-
pleting all or most of the requirements
for a certificate or associate's degree in
applied sciences. Once they graduate,
they will be qualified to hold a well-pay-
ing job in the technical field of their
choosing.
Students who wish to enroll in The
Career Academy at SFCC should visit
their high school guidance counselor or
call 453-4311 in Avon Park, 471-5500 in
Sebring, and 699-5010 in Lake Placid.

Business

Jeweler uses Belgium trips to find ideal diamonds


The News-Sun www.newssun.com


By MATT MURPHY
mait.inurphvy@ neiwssun.com
SEBRING Antwerp, Belgium is con-
sidered to be the "Diamond Capital of
the World." Charles Stuart of Highlands
Jewelers should know this, since he
makes the long trip at least once every
year.
Stuart is able to make the trip to
Belgium on behalf of Highlands
Jewelers, which was selected as a Master
Independent Jeweler Organization (IJO)
company 22 years ago.
There with other members of the
group, Stuart has access to what is
known as the "diamond district," an area
of just a few blocks that features a large
network of buyers and sellers in the dia-
mond business. In this area, Stuart is able
to examine a large variety of diamonds
as he meets with cutters, dealers, buyers
and sellers.


After examining and selecting his
group of diamonds, Highlands Jewelers
is able to take them and make their own
individual collections, that they then can
sell to the public.
The Antwerp diamonds are "some of
our best-selling collections," Stuart said.
"When customers come in and see them,
they really respond."
By being able to pick out the diamonds
that will be used to make the jewelry
pieces, Highlands Jewelers is able to
control the steps of making the jewelry
pieces closely.
"We are able to control the process
from beginning to end," Stuart said. "It
cuts out the middleman."
The Antwerp trips are basically busi-
ness trips, Stuart said, and the time there
is spent finding the best pieces.
"We spend days sorting through dia-
monds" in Antwerp to try to find the


ideal ones, Stuart said. Just getting the
diamonds to Antwerp can be a taxing
process, as an average of 250 tons of
rock, sand and dirt have to be moved to
get just one carat of diamond.
The Belgian diamond cutters are gen-
erally considered to be the best in the
world, and gaining access to this market
is always advantageous, Stuart said.
"Buying directly from Antwerp gives
us a significant advantage in price and
quality of diamonds," he said.
Stuart's last trip to Antwerp occurred
in October, and he usually takes two trips
a year. Highlands Jewelers was opened
by Stuart's father in 1972. Charles Stuart
started working there in 1980, and he
started making trips to Antwerp 10 years
later. The business is certainly a family
affair, as Stuart's wife and son also work


there.
For more


information, call 385-4909.

to Antwerp, Belgium to supplement the selection at the
store. Antwerp is internationally knows as "The Diamond
Capital of the World," and Stuart is able to go as a member
of the Master Independent Jeweler Organization.


A crash course in financial fundamentals


If you've got a freshman
heading off to college, you're
probably scrambling to teach
him or her how to cook maca-
roni and cheese and do laundry
without turning everything
pink. But there are other
important lessons you can
share that will have a much
longer-lasting effect on their
financial future.
College students often get
deluged with credit card offers.
Although opening and using an
account responsibly is a good
way to build a solid credit his-
tory, inexperienced card users
sometimes are tempted to buy
things they can't really afford
- or worse, to rely on their
card for recurring expenses
like rent and tuition.
Do your child a favor and
have frequent, candid discus-
.t using .
responsibly and the pitfalls of
overindulging. Key points to
tell them:
Try to use your card only
when confident you can pay
off the balance each month.
Paying just the minimum due
can add years and signifi-
cant interest to your repay-
ment.
Don't be tempted by free
giveaways or low teaser rates,


which often
rise dramat-
ically after
a few
months.
Look for
a card with
no annual
fee and a
Personal lengthy
grace period
Finance before
Jason Alderman finance
changes
begin. You can comparison
shop at www.bank rate.com.
Investigate other fees, such
as those for cash advances, late
payments, balance transfers
and exceeding your limit.
Carrying too many cards can
damage your credit score, as
can high balances. Try never to
owe more than 25 percent of
redit limit on any card.
Another important consider-
ation is the long-term financial
consequence for you and
your children of paying for
college. Often, students will
owe $20,000 or much more in
loans by the time they graduate
and many parents postpone
saving for their own retirement
to finance college.
Students must begin paying
off loans once they graduate.


Although most federal loans
offer a grace period, many pri-
vate loans do not, so check the
paperwork carefully.
It's virtually impossible to
avoid repaying student loans,
even through bankruptcy, so
make sure your kids don't take
on more debt than they'll be
able to repay. The U.S.
Department of Labor provides
helpful salary data on various
professions (www.bls.gov/oes/
home.htm.)
Consider consulting a finan-
cial professional for your fami-
ly's particular situation.
Check out What's My Score,
a financial literacy program
sponsored by Visa USA, which
aims to raise young adults'
awareness of the importance of
understanding and improving
their credit scores (www.whats
myscore.org).
College is a big step toward
independence. Just make sure
your kids have all the tools
they need to ensure a strong
financial future.

I have very exciting news to share. I
recently applied, and was accepted into
the RBIOAA! Isn't that great? Nothing
could have been more gratifying to my
life than finally making it in. For so
long I had been trying to get accepted,
sending in application after application
with nothing to show for it. But not
now, no, now the certificate is in the
mail, the badge is being shipped and the
title has been appointed.
Oh, but I didn't tell you what
RBIOAA is, did I? I guess I just fig-
ured everyone would know, but I sup-
pose that isn't true. There are probably a
lot of people that don't know. It is a
growing organization, and shoot, now
that I am in it I bet the popularity will
just skyrocket. I can kind of be their
celebrity spokesman.
Look at that, I still forgot to tell you.
Well that figures, doing stuff like that is
one of the bylaws of being a member.
Kind of funny how bylaws work, huh?
Or don't work. Or work by not working.
Right? Maybe. What am I talking
about? Oh yeah, I almost forgot. I got
accepted into the Really Big Idiots Of
America Association. 'Pretty cool huh?
Now you are probably thinking to
yourself:-How can I get in? How, how,
how, how, how? Well first you have to
,calm down. Focus. And then go off and
do something really, really stupid!
Like what, you ask? Well I am glad
you asked. Let me give you some exam-
ples. Aww shucks. I'll just go ahead and


Dabbling
With Daniel
Daniel Bedell


tell you what finally got me in.
OK, so about two months ago I
bought an iPod nano. It was'very excit-
ing. I was the first of all my friends to
have one. It was going to be my bestest
friend in the whole wide world. It would
go running with me, go biking with me,
go on long boring drives with me; it was
going to be my closest companion. And,
for a month he was. But then a sad, sad
thing happened. I lost my friend. And
when you loose an iPod nano friend you
have got to figure someone else is going
to pick him up and give him a new
home.
Now I looked everywhere for him. I
scoured my room several times. I even
(gasp) cleaned my room. And as a sort
of tribute to my friend I have kept it
clean ever since. Which was over a
month, and for me that is definitely a
record length. Who am kidding, it was
a record after three days.
Losing my friend was indeed sad. I-


couldn't afford to adopt another. To add
insult to injury, a special case I had
ordered for him arrived in the mail a
couple days after he was lost.
With no other options I did what any
good friend would do, I begged my par-
ents for a new iPod nano friend for
Christmas. I said that was the only thing
I really wanted. That all other things
would pale in comparison and that if
they really loved me they wouid sell
whatever they had so that they could get
me one.
Well the other day I was looking
something up and grabbed a book off
my shelf, the same shelf I used to keep
Poddy on. (Poddy is what I called him).
It was sad reaching for a book from that
shelf, but knowing that a new Poddy
was on its way for Christmas helped
ease the pain. Then out of the book
came something that crashed onto my
desk. Strange, indeed. I looked down
and who would it be: PODDY! After a
month of being lost, after posting 'Have
You Seen Poddy?' ads, after asking
everyone I knew if they had seen him,
after cleaning my room, after begging
the parents for a new Poddy (one that
they had gone ahead and bought)... after
all that he was in a book that sat 16
inches from my forehead.
And that, my friends, is how I got
into RBIOAA.

Daniel Bedell is an Avon Park native cur-
rently in exile in Michigan attending college.

American citizens
deserve much more
Editor:
It is very close to Christmas and our
Congress of the United States.is worried
about how terrorists are treated. On the news
50 people have been killed by terrorist in the
past week in another country.
Our Congress considers the treatment of
terrorist inhumane treatment ... not consider-
ing they murder people every day as inhu-
mane treatment.
My husband and I have had the flu and
been very sick, yet our congress does not con-
sider getting unwanted calls all day long,
early in the morning and after nine at night
from someone we do not want to talk to and
does hot call it inhumane treatment.
How many people out there consider this
inhumane treatment invading their lives on a
daily basis with unwanted calls?
If they intend to stop the way terrorists are
treated when trying to get information out of
them as to where the next group of people are
going to be murdered. Then surely they can
stop the inhumane treatment we suffer every
day and every day of our lives with these
unwanted telephone calls Congress has
allowed to come into our home.
Where are elected officials who claim to be
interested in our lives and yet do not stop this
daily unwanted calls coming into our home. It
seems our elected officials find it more impor-
tant to worry about terrorist and their treat-
ment then their elderly senior citizens who
when sick ... are plagued with these calls.
I thought that there had to be a telephone
number to these calls; many have no numbers
that you can complain to the government


Call to my representative about many calls
each from the two different parties which had
a number the representative found out that the
numbers were unlisted and there was no way
a complaint could be'filed. What good is
being able to complain when our government
allows unlisted telephone numbers coming
into our homes to annoy us on a daily basis'.
Let's shout as' loud as those elected in
Congress shout on how we treat terrorist
when questioning them and get these unwant-
ed telephone calls stopped completely unless
one wants these calls to come in an annoy,
them.
Come on elected officials ... let's get the
same treatment you seem to spend so much
time in seeing terrorists get humane treatment
and gives us American citizens the right to
your Same concerns and stop these calls from
coming into our homes.

Chamber helps make
Christmas brighter
Editor:
Thank you to the wonderful residents of
Lake Placid who heartily responded to the call
for toys to be given to local children for
Christmas. The needs of our community were
huge this year but the generosity of Lake
Placid made it possible for more than 800
local children to receive a gift this Christmas.
Our special thanks to the chamber of com-
merce, the local businesses who collected and
donated toys, the participating Lake Placid
churches, Manna Ministries and the special


people of Memorial United Methodist Church
who collected, wrapped and hosted the fourth
annual Christmas Store.
We are proud to be a part of this communi-
ty! May God richly bless you in the New
Year.

Christmas Store Committee for Memorial United
Methodist Church.

Glad Hatters help put
on holiday show
Editor:
On behalf of the residents of Sun 'N Lakes,
Lake Placid, we would like to thank the
Highlands Little Theatre and its group known
as "The Glad Hatters." They came to our
clubhouse and their program consisted of
great skits, stories-and songs brought us all
into the "festive Christmas mood."
This group (when not busy in the theater)
are really entertaining. Give them a call and
at no charge they will perform for your group.
I would be remiss if I failed to thank our
Barbara Huff and her hard working group
who prepared the delicious food and did a
great job of serving and cleaning up. Another
of our hard workers, Barbara Scott, did an
awesome job putting up a huge Christmas tree
and decorating the entire building (including
the bathroom). If all of this didn't lift our
spirits and make us happy, well it did! So,
once again a sincere thank you to everyone.
We're all so lucky to have such friends.

FACTS
Continued from 1A
more willing to report fatigue,
irritability, loss of interest in
work or hobbies and sleep dis-
turbances. Women, on the other
hand, talk more openly about
feelings of sadness, worthless-
ness and excessive guilt. Men
more frequently turn to alcohol
or drugs when they are
depressed. Some become frus-
trated, discouraged, angry, irrita-
ble and even abusive. Men also
may throw themselves compul-
sively into their work as a way to
hide their depression. Others
may respond to depression by
engaging in reckless behavior,
taking risks and putting them-
selves in harm's way.

6m How can you recognize
depression in a college stu-
dent home for the holidays?
Parents can expect their col-
lege students to be the people
they always were when they
come home. They should pay
attention and ask questions if
they see a drastic change in
behavior or relationships, or if
they notice such signs as weight
gain or weight loss. Students
with depression can be sluggish
and sad, or they can be angry,
rebellious and even frenzied. But
these same symptoms could sig-
nal that a student is involved in
drug abuse or having other prob-
lems, so it's important to ask
questions and to listen carefully
to the answers.

7, Can substance abuse
cause depression?
Substance abuse can cause
depression as a result of chemi-
cal changes in the brain. But
depression can lead to substance
abuse, as well. Many people
turn to drugs or alcohol to
relieve the misery of their
depression.

8. What are the warning
signs that someone is at risk
of committing suicide?
Signs of potential suicide
include:


DEPRESSION
Continued from 1A
as heightened irritability,
sleepiness or sleeplessness.
People suffering depression
often gain or lose weight sud-
denly. Unfortunately, a major
symptom of serious depres-
sion is the tendency to with-
draw from all company.
Should symptoms persist
for two or three weeks, treat-
ment may be in order.
This is absolutely the case
should the depression grow
darker, and a person's life
becomes at risk.
The best news is that
depression has become highly
treatable with excellent
results, and there are places to
find help in Highlands
County.
Family, friends and neigh-
bors certainly can help by
reaching out.
For those who struggle, it
helps to set boundaries. Make
adjustments to old routines.
For example instead of send-
ing cards to everyone in the
neighborhood, send cards to
the neighbors on the block.
Ask for help with the heavy
lifting. Create a budget and
live by it that makes
January easier to take.
Reach out, too, if possible.
Visit a new church, volunteer
for a favorite cause, get out to
holiday events, like the
parades, and the concerts,
especially with friends.
Much harder, but equally
important, is to try to avoid



FUNDING
Continued from 1A
for both Highlands and Hardee
Counties.
The LIHEAP program pro-
vides homeless prevention
services to assist in paying
heating and cooling bills for
those who qualify.
Within the last two weeks,
the coalition signed a contract
with the Agriculture and Labor
Program to provide services to
the residents of Highlands
County.
The program will assist indi-
viduals and families to gain
higher self-sufficiency.
Questions regarding these
programs can be addressed to

9. What is the best way to
treat depression?
Medical professionals may
recommend an antidepressant
medication, psychotherapy or a
combination. Research also
shows that exercise can be high-
ly effective. Treatment is based
on each individual's needs,
including physical state, habits,
preferences and resources. When
depression may be hereditary,
the same medication or treatment
that worked for other family
members may work best for the
patient as well.

10. What are the different
degrees of depression, and
how are they treated differ-
ently?
Depression can be mild,
moderate or severe. In general,
mental-health professionals use
the same types of treatment on
all levels of severity: therapy,
medication, exercise or a combi-
nation. The biggest difference
occurs when individuals are so
seriously depressed that they are
at risk of hurting themselves or
others. In that case, hospitaliza-
tion may be required until the


unreasonable expectations.
That cousin who was a tor-
ment growing up probably
hasn't changed. The troubled
grandson is likely still look-
ing for himself. Uncle Ed will
get drunk on Christmas Eve
as he always has despite three
interventions.
Old issues have a way of
swirling to the surface.
Celebrate the memories,
Simpson said, and don't focus
on the losses.
But if someone can't find
the joy in Christmas, don't
insist they keep looking.
Make room for them instead.
He added that everyone can
benefit by closure. Once the
celebrations are over, don't
live on the leftovers. Clear
out the pantry. Get back into
healthier eating. Cut back on
the alcohol and caffeine. Get
exercise for example walk
around the block.
Then savor the memories
and get on with life.

get help call Daybreak
Behavioral Health Services at
314-4357, or the Marge
Brewster Center at 385-5179.


patient's condition can be stabi-
lized.

I I Is treatment effec-
tive?
Clinical depression is a treat-
able illness. More than 80 per-
cent of all patients who seek
treatment improve. But to
ensure success, patients must
maintain their treatment and
must pursue other options if ini-
tial medications or types of ther-
apy do not work. Individuals
with depression should never
give up.

1 2. Where can someone
with depression find help?
There are many resources
available, depending on a
patient's specific needs. Some
starting place:
M www.depression.com
E
www.mentalhealth.samhsa.gov/
cmhs/nspi/
* www.dbsalliance.org

1 3. What are the "holiday
blues"?
"Holiday blues" describe
mild depression that occurs dur-
ing the holiday season. Everyone
is at risk, but the holiday blues
especially can affect people who
are stressed, fatigued or lonely.
Unrealistic expectations, over-
commercialization and financial
constraints also can contribute to
the seasonal blues. Tips for cop-
ing with stress and depression
during the holidays include:
E Keep expectations for the
holiday season manageable.
Remember that the holidays
don't banish reasons for feeling
sad or lonely.
Do something for someone
else.
E Be aware that excessive drink-
ing will only increase feelings of
depression.
- If you are not already exer-
cising, find a way to start. It
does not have to be a formal
program.
0 Spend time with supportive
and caring people.


* Moderate your stresses and
avoid becoming overcommitted.
E Seek professional help if the
holiday blues become too severe
and begin to develop into symp-
toms of depression.

14. What is seasonal
affective disorder, and what
can be done about it?
Seasonal affective disorder
(SAD) occurs when a person's
"biological clock" or circadian
rhythm is out of step with the
daily schedule. It usually is
caused by season changes, and
the worst months for most SAD
sufferers are December, January
and February. However, some
people are affected in the sum-
mer as well. Younger people
and women are at highest risk.
The disorder may be related to
melatonin, a chemical in the
brain that increases production
in the dark. Many people
respond well to phototherapy or
bright-light therapy, which
seems to reduce the brain's pro-
duction of melatonin. You
should discuss your symptoms
and treatment options with your
doctor.

15. Should I fear some-
one with depression?
No. People with depression
or any other kind of mental ill-
ness are far more likely to be
victims of violence than to com-
mit violence against others.
Friendship and support from
family, friends and others often
can help the patient improve
more quickly. But the stigma of
mental illness can cause those
who need help to fear losing
their friends, support systems
and even their jobs. As a result,
many may delay or avoid treat-
ment. Because early treatment is
the best indicator of success,
this delay can prove to be dev-
astating for the person in need
of care.

TOUCH
Continued from 1A
acute care, someone needing
a tooth extraction, or a filling
will get treatment here.
The van travels the state,
30-40 weeks out of the year.
It will stop for a week or two
at any particular location, and
see patients on referral. The
van is so popular it has to be
booked at least two years in
advance.
So how did Samaritan's
Touch Care Center, only in
operation for six months,
receive a visit from such a
hard to reserve mobile unit so
soon?
It was a miracle, pure and
simple, Furr said.
DeWayne Wyatt, of the
Orange Blossom Baptist
Association, called her in
January 2007. He had been
following the story of the care
center's birth with interest.
When a cancellation for the
van came up, he thought
immediately of Furr and
called to see if she would
accept the opportunity for a
visit from the van.
Furr immediately said yes,
even though the center hadn't
moved in to its quarters,
lacked all the necessary
equipment and Furr didn't
know a single dentist. "If the
Lord is going to provide the
van," she said she thought at
the time, "He will provide the
dentists as well."
And when the time came,
she added, indeed, many local
dentists stepped forward.
William Holth, Stephen
Hulen, Michael Lamp, Tina
Thomas and Richard Wood,
along with their assistants,
each took time to provide
treatment.
But that is only the begin-
ning of the story, Furr said.
South Florida Community
College's Dr. Ed Oxer, who
also has been keeping up with
the story, and the school's
dental education program
have been in touch with Furr
regarding the creation of a
regularly scheduled dental
clinic for the needy unin-
sured.
The care center has the
space. Furr is asking for
donations of dental equip-
ment with which to furnish
such a space.
"So you see, (the possibili-
ty of a dental clinic) grew out
of this van's visit this week,"
she said. "Its arrival means so
much more than just this one
visit. It will grow into an
important capacity, and be a
blessing to our patients." And


of course, she said, with the
radiant smile, it was all of
God's doing.
But the dental clinic is
actually the second miracle of
its kind, Furr added. The cen-
ter, thanks to volunteer Dr.
Ronald Sevigny, holds an on-
site eye clinic once a month
- and that promises to be
only the beginning of even
greater comprehensive serv-
ice.
To qualify for treatment at
the Samaritan's Touch Care
Center, an individual or fami-
ly may not hold any kind of
insurance, or earn more than
150 percent of Federal
Poverty Guidelines.
A screening appointment
must be made. Once eligibili-
ty is determined, a patient
enters into a total care setting.
After an examination and
blood work-up by the center's
medical director, Dr. Luis
Pena, patients are referred to
specialists as needed.
"We schedule by appoint-
ment so our patients may
have the same kind of quality
experience (insured patients
have)," Fuss said. "Just
because you can't pay, does-
n't mean you have to stand
and wait around for six hours.
"We depend on the gen-
erosity of the local medical
community," she added. "We
couldn't do this without the
community's support."
Both of the hospitals are
deeply involved. Florida
Hospital Heartland Division
is providing grant funding, as
well as lab, and scan/X-ray
testing. Highlands Regional
Medical Center is also pro-
viding lab and pathology
work, as well as stationary
products like letterhead and
appointment cards.
The Highlands County
Hospital District, the
Highlands County Health
Authority, and the Heartland
Pharmacy have been other
major supporters. The
Heartland Pharmacy staff, for
example, helped plan and set
up the clinic's dispensary.
With the end of the year
approaching, Furr wants to
remind everyone that the clin-
ic is a 501(c) 3 charity, mean-
ing donations are tax
deductible.
For more information, or to
make an appointment or a
donation, call the Samaritan's
Touch Care Center at 382-
3324. It is at 3015 Herring
Ave., off of Memorial
Highway, across from the
Comcast office.

Each December, Beth vowed to make Christmas a calm ad peaceful experience. She
hWat back on nonessential obligations- extensive card wridtg,udless dking, decorating and
ea werspeiding.
-t, still, she found herself exhausted, unable to appreciate the precious family
reiments and of course, the true meaning of Christmas.
Her son,Nicholas,was in kindergarten that year. It was an exciting season for a six
ywar td.For weeks, he'd been memorizing songs for his school's"Winter Pageant".
8 dtlidn't have the heart to tell him she'd be working the night ofthe production.
o miss his shining moment, she spoke with his teacher. She assured her there'd be a
tathee morning of the presentation.
AM Parents unable to attend that evening were welcome to come then. Fortunately,
Ni as ;eemed happy with the compromise.
So,4hetwrning of the dress rehearsal, Beth filed in ten minutes early, found a spot
a de etft floor and sat down.Around the room, she saw several other parents quietly
aspeigto eir seats.
As ty waited, the students were led into the room. Each class, accompanied by their
teat1,at ross4legged on the floor.Then, each group, one by one, rose to perform their song.
Because the public school system had long stopped referring to the holiday as
"ICMsW they didn't expect anything other than fun commercial entertainment songs of
ao ar,-SantaClaus, snowflakes and good cheer
S, When the class rose to sing,"Christmas Love," Beth was slightly taken aback by
k altide. Nicholas was aglow, as were all of his classmates, adorned in fuzzy mittens, red
ssers and bright snowcaps upon their heads.
Those in the front row center stage held up 'large letters, one by one, to spell out
tdeof dithe song. As the class would sing"C" is for Christnas, a child would hold up the
er C.Then,"H" is for Happy, and on and on, until each child holding up his portion had
pwatedthei complete message,"Christmas Love."
The performance was going smoothly, until suddenly, we noticed a small, quiet girl in
teIe t row holding the letter "M" upside down totally unaware her letter "M" appeared as
.W The audience of the Ist through 6th graders snickered at this little one's mistake, but
ha no idea they were laughing at her, so she stood tall,proudly holding her' W'.
Alhugh many teachers tried to shush the children, the laughter continued until the
at ter was raised, and we all saw it together.
Ahsh came over the audience and eyes began to widen. In an instant,we understood
tie *essn we were there, why we celebrated the holiday in the first place, why even in the
da, dere was purpose for our festivities.
'For when the last letter was held high,the message read loud and clear:

Santa visits Lunch Club Wednesday


Hobby Club staying busy


By CINDY MARSHALL
New\s-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Santa Claus visited
Lunch Club Wednesday recently to hand
out a secret package to one 'Good Girl'
this year.
Sherry DeSimone-Dawes, of Sebring,
was selected by Santa as the winner for
all her good deeds with the American
Cancer Society as a volunteer. She
became involved with American Cancer
Society because of her family's history
of cancer and dealing with cancer vic-
tims through her job as the district sales
coordinator with Aflac.
"She receives calls from people who
are newly diagnosed or previously diag-
nosed with cancer and need assistance,"
Diana Albritton, Lunch Club Wednesday
coordinator, said.
Through' her experience with
American Cancer Society DeSimone-
Dawes has been able to assist and edu-
cate individuals about the free services
available such as free wigs, prosthetics,
counseling, Look Good Feel Good pro-
gram, transportation and financial assis-
tance. She also donated her time to.chair
one of the local Relay for Life events.
"Because of Sherry's career with
Aflac, she has been able to promote early


detection for cancer and other health
concerns," Albritton said.
DeSimone-Dawes won an SOS
Contour Body Wrap Series, which is
three treatments, donated by The Oasis at
Sebring Health and Wellness Center; $50
cash donated by Lunch Club Wednesday;
a foot massage gift certificate from
Susan McDougall; and a holiday magic
pen and notepad.
Sunny Serafino, an award winning
novelist in Sebring, won the CeCe
Courage Award for December. She vol-
unteered to teach creative writing skills
to five sixth grade classes at Lake Placid
Middle School. Serafino said the stu-
dents were receptive, pleasant and enthu-
siastic to learn.
Serafino won a $25 gift certificate to
Hobby Hill Florist and a flower bouquet.
Jane Breylinger, executive director for
Highlands County Habitat for Humanity,
informed and educated the club how to
get involved by either helping to build a
house either by donating time or mone-
tary contributions. The Habitat Supply
Store takes furniture donations.
Rebecca Benevides-Noonon, physi-
cian assistant, highlighted a few 2007 tax
ideas concerning charitable contribu-
tions, cash and stock donations and year-

and said that half of this plate should
contain vegetables, one-fourth meat
and one-fourth starches (potatoes,
rice, pasta). She stressed that one
gram of carbohydrates equals four
calories, one gram of protein equals
four calories, but one gram of fat
equals nine calories. She urged us to
remember 4-4-9! Then she
announced the winners of our con-
test. The big winner was Ethel
Emanuel who received a round of
applause as well as a gift.

Don't overlook these unusual new natural healing remedies


Accredited nuclear laboratory

available at Heartland Cardiology


Special to the New's-Suni
SEBRING One Ameri-
can dies every 32 seconds of
cardiovascular disease, disor-
ders of the heart and blood
vessels.
Each year, approximately
five and a half million stress
nuclear cardiology studies are
performed in the United
States. Both the pump func-
tion and the blood flow of the
heart are assessed during
nuclear cardiology testing
procedures. As a result,
physicians are able to detect
the presence of cardiovascu-
lar disease and may also dis-
cover important information
regarding the occurrence of
future heart attacks.
The heart is evaluated at
rest and during exercise using
a small amount of radioiso-
tope during the noninvasive
procedure.
A complex imaging tech-
nique, nuclear cardiology
testing relies on the experi-
ence and training of both the
physician and the technolo-
gist. Their interpretive and
technical abilities determine
the diagnostic accuracy of the


examination. The
Imersocietal Commission for
the Accreditation of Nuclear
Medicine Laboratories
(1CANL) has developed an
accreditation program that
evaluates the quality of these
and other critical elements of
a nuclear cardiology laborato-
ry.
Heartland Cardiology.
located in Sebring. was grant-
ed accreditation by the
ICANL. The laboratory is one
of the first nuclear cardiology
laboratories in the United
States, Canada and Puerto
Rico to be recognized for its
commitment to high quality
patient care and its provision
of quality diagnostic testing.
The ICANL provides a peer
review mechanism to encour-
age and recognize the provi-
sion of quality nuclear cardi-
ology and nuclear medicine
diagnostic evaluations by a
process of voluntary accredi-
tation.
A non-profit organization,
the ICANL is dedicated to
ensuring high quality patient
care and to promoting health
care.


When will we start to face
up to the realities that there
are health products that will
bring us better health daily?
Not only the American public
but the health industry as a
whole sticks to the almost
ancient approach to what is
best for you, but does not. We
just do not seem to learn a
lesson that medicines have
side effects that can be
destructive at times, and have
more than ever shown serious
consequences when ingested
more than they should be.
The sell is constantly
shoved in our faces, and we
ignore what drugs do to our
precious bodies. Read seri-
ously the labels of each drug,
if not understood, call the
pharmacist, the companies to
explain what is stated, or just
go to the computer and find
out for yourself. Have you
ever tried to do so? Speak to
someone close who has had
little result in bettering their
health with drugs, no less tak-
ing more than prescipted. You
might find exceptions to the
rule, but overall the percent-
ages show a negative result.
In case of an immediate
need, and temporarily so, as
an aspirin, or anti-biotic if


they now work prop-
erly, you might be
able to handle this 1
short term need. In
the waiting wings are -.
the many natural
products for your ^-r 1
good health in the ---
long run.
Almost all the Nat
remedies can be Weil
found in the super-
market, health store. JOU
your Internet, per- Ray

your fridge. It is
best to consult with a health
professional before trying any
of the following: Chicken

It cost little. See that it con-
tains chicken, carrots,

SEBRING RECREATION CLUB
Chapman Chamberlin

SEBRING One of the many
goals of the recreation club is to
reach out to the area and offer more
people recreation in Sebring. Last
year Don Robman had the best idea
that I have heard about shuffleboard,
in the college. He thinks it would be
nice if offered at the school, but how
do we start? Shuffleboard helps one,


not only physically, but also mental-
ly. It also teaches one self-control
and also team play. If you do not
play shuffleboard you should at least
give it a try at our club. If you now
play in a park you should come and
play with us on our courts. They are
maintained by John Bushee. It is
very beneficial for a person to play
on different courts. You can learn
tournament play at the club if you so
desire. These are some of the best
courts in Florida and they are locat-
ed in Sebring. Sebring needs to
reach the young professionals in our
area to get their help with making
this sport grow. We hope that the
parks have their teams lined up for
March 4 this next year. Ten teams
will compete from the different
parks in the area. The teams will be
consisting of six players each.
Coffee and doughnuts will start the
day, followed by lunch for the play-
ers. If you want a shuffleboard shirt,
only a very few left. Stop by and say
hello to the person at the desk and
check out the shirts; also get your
club calendar for the month. See the
time for Hobby Club, Line Dancing,
Bridge, Euchre, Pinochle, Table
Tennis and Shuffleboard and one
club member has been taking line
dancing lessons and has learned


much from this. Now it will be inter-
esting if they continue or return to
shuffleboard.
Line dancing has room to grow a
little more and they also would like
to add new members as well as new
dances. It is understood that you are
a stranger to them only on your first
visit, try it and see.
The desk will be able to tell you
when the Sundays The Bluegrass
Travelers will appear. They will also
be able to tell you about all of our
entertainment.
Carl said that bingo did not have a
very large turn out Thursday night,
so members and guests, let's make
Carl work. Sonny likes to be in the
money and let's get others to call
with him.
Juanita Harlow and Ed Williams
have surgery this month. George and
Nancy must be busy for they have
not been as active as in the past. Don
Noldy may be able to return to shuf-
fleboard later. If we are to grow we
must all take part in the club, it is
more than Ed and John can do alone.
Dean Bennett has not been on the
courts this year that I know about.
Have you signed up for the shuffle
league yet? League starts Jan. 9 at
1:15 p.m. and all will have a good
time.


Our garage sale is getting closer
and Ed would like to hear from you
about this sale March 7-8. He wants
items for sale also as well as helpers.
If you are not a club member yet you
should come and see all that you are
missing. The club is active all year
with meetings only in the winter
months. Cards, line dancing, table
tennis and shuffleboard go on all
year. Thursday's a shuffleboard tour-
nament in the central district some
place. Carl Wile from Sebring was
number one for the summer last
year, with others doing well from
Highlands County.
It would be nice if some of the
church groups in Sebring joined our
club. Church groups are always
looking for something different.
Your group would feel welcomed by
us. We offer so much and shuffle-
board is such a good sport for both
men and women. Young and older,
as long as you are over 21 years of
age. Sebring has Irving 94 that you
will see at most of the open shuf-
fling. Avon Park has Ted Flower 97-
year-old that is at some. This is only
one of the offerings made by the
club. Any questions, ask the desk
person or call Ed Straub at 386-
0245.

SNL Elementary has a lot of HAART!


By Matthew Portis and
Matthew Bivens
SEBRING HAART has begun its
third year at Sun 'n Lake Elementary
School. HAART represents Highlands
Advanced Academics Rising Together.
Many students are in this program
because they were chosen out of many


high-achieving students. All these stu-
dents worked extremely hard and
stayed focused.
Several students in Mrs. Comers'
class were asked if HAART brings kids
to their full potential. Ashley White feels
"It teaches us what we need to know


plus much more for the next school
year." When Milind Khurana was asked
if HAART is fun for him, he replied, "It
challenges me and you get to do hands-
on activities such as science experi-
ments." So it turns out that HAART is
exciting and challenging at the same


time.
HAART is also different from other
classes because kids get to do inde-
pendent projects This year our class
just completed projects on Ancient
Egypt, and are now working on science
fair projects which will be due on Friday,


Nov. 16. Some other activities HAART
kids will get to do this year are online
math competition, Quiz Bowl and a
stock market simulation.
Fifth Grade HAART students in the
county will display their science fair
projects at the Agri-Center on Dec. 4.


It's DARE


time!
By Jessica Belcher and Casey
Williams
SEBRING Every Tuesday
and Thursday, Sgt. Monica
Sauls visits fifth grade classes at
Sun n' Lake. She is a D.A.R.E
officer for Highlands County
along with many others. During
our lessons, Sgt. Sauls talks
about drugs and how they affect
our bodies. She had also men-
tioned that many children have
parents who have to go to jail,
and their kids have to go and live
at emergency shelters until their
parents are able to care for
them, all because of drug abuse.
During class, students are
provided with a planner/work-
book to write down what they
have learned that day. Every
class also has a DARE Question
Box. Students can put in ques-
tions they would like to ask, but
maybe not in front of other peo-
ple.
One of the first things the
kids learned was the meaning of
D.A.R.E. which means Drug
Abuse Resistance Education.
Each week we spent time learn-
ing how to use our Dare
Decision Making Model. It
- teaches us to think about a situa-
tion, look at the choices, then
learn how to say "yes" or "no".
We learned different ways to say
"no" to drugs. Also, we had to
decide if we made the right deci-
sion.
Sgt. Sauls taught us that all
drugs are not illegal. Although
prescription drugs and over-the-
counter drugs are not illegal,
they can be dangerous too if
they are abused.
Now we have to write a
D.A.R.E. essay about what we
have learned, and then Sgt.
Sauls will then see if we've been
paying attention.



Gifted Art is


blooming
By Armon Luckenbach, Hunter
Livingston and Connor Angell
SEBRING Mrs. Mollie
Stephens is the teacher of the
Gifted Enrichment Classes at
Sun 'n Lake Elementary School.
But the real excitement is
going on in the fifth grade gifted
class. They've been focusing on
"Art and its Media."
So far in the field of art,
they've used charcoal, water col-
ors, and Eric Carles style of cut-
and-paste technique.
The class has been critiquing
different books to discover the
next possible Caldecott medal
winners such as Not a Box, Little
Red Fish, and Bad Dog Marley.
All have a chance of winning. In
order to win, the book has to be
published in 2007 and must have
superb artwork.
An upcoming field trip to the
Agri- Civic Center has been
planned for Nov. 15. Students
will see murals, paintings,
artists, and even make their own
pottery!

Egyptian




Discoveries


By Brandon Bowyer
and Sierra Endsley
SEBRING Oct. 12 was the
day Tic-tac-toe Projects on
Ancient Egypt were due in Mrs.
Comers' class. Students were
given projects on Egyptian
themes. A tic-tac-toe project is
made up of a page with three
horizontal rows with choices list-
ed in each row. The students
must then pick one choice from
each row. On the due date, three
projects must be brought to
class.
When all the projects were
brought into the classroom, it
was very crowded, but exciting!
Every project was exceptionally
creative and different from the
Great Pyramid models to the
small scarabs. One of our
favorites was Hunter
Livingston's pyramid which had
a detailed floor plan of the inside.


Another interesting pyramid was
Connor Angell's pyramid. When
the side of his pyramid was
opened, it played the song,
"Walk Like an Egyptian".
The sphinx sculptures were
outstanding too, because of the
splendid details. This was a very
hard project to do!
Some of the projects involved
creative writing such as travel
brochures, research about
Egyptian gods, and the history
of scarabs,
We had an Open House in
Mrs. Stephens' Portable Oct. 30
so we could share our projects
with other classes in the school.
As each class came through to
view the projects, we were on
hand to answer questions.
Everyone worked VERY hard
on these projects. Each one was
tremendous, and we all think if
was a good learning experience.

around the school.


By Armon Luckenbach,
Emmanuel Ramos, Jessica Saenz
SEBRING-- On Friday, Oct. 26, the
school was booming with excitement. It
was Literacy Day when students could
dress up as characters from their favorite
books.
Our class chose an Egyptian theme
because we had just finished reading The
Egypt
Game by Zilpha Keatley Snyder.
Mrs. Comers' class was dressed in cos-
tumes as mummies, pharaohs, Egyptians,


and even the gods were coming out!
Matthew Portis and Armon Luckenbach
were fierce Egyptian gods. Emmanuel
Ramos and Matthew Bivens were dressed
as mummies.
Renz Torres, when interviewed replied,
"It is nice to show our costumes off to the
school."
Before the very end of the parade, the
show was"rained out," unfortunately.
However, it was still a happy event at the
school and our own special way to express
our inner "Egyptian" spirit.


Sun 'n Lake students proud to honor military veterans


By Jessica Belcher, Sierra
Endsley, Alana Reid and
Ashley White
SEBRING Sun 'n Lake is
proud to celebrate Veterans Day,
formerly known as Armistice Day.
This day was put aside to honor
men and women who served or
are serving in our military.
We celebrate Veterans Day on


Nov. 11.
Although we celebrate this day,
not many of us know the history of
this honorable day. In 1919
President Woodrow Wilson made
Armistice Day a national holiday.
However, Armistice Day became
Veterans Day when the citizens of

An 'A' school is

a cool school
By Elijah Gavarrete,
Emmanuel Ramos
SEBRING Sun 'n Lake
Elementary School has been
an "A" school six times!
This school first became an
"A" school in 2000, accord-
ing to our principal, Mrs.
Diane Lethbridge.
"Our boys and girls
worked very hard in read-
ing, math, science, and writ-
ing. We used FCAT explor-
er, Success Maker, Kaplan,
and test prep materials to
practice and review before
the test."
Our school earned over
525 points. In order to
receive an "A", schools must
have low students make
progress in Math and read-
ing, and must test at least 95
percent of eligible students.
So . hooray for our stu-
dents!



Locked up

on Early

Release Day
By Valery Cajuste
SEBRING Early
release day is the best day
of the month for students.
But what about teachers?
What do they do on early
release day?
Teachers stay behind and
grade papers, get ready for
the next day, and go to
meetings and workshops.
Do teachers think it is
fair? When my former
teacher, Mrs. Abell was
asked how she spent early
release days, she said it
depends on the day.
Maybe next time we have
an early release day, we will
think about the teachers,
the ones who work hard to
help us learn something
new every day. We are
sometimes the ones who
give them a hard time. So
now we know the truth
about the teachers. The
have to stay behind on our
special day of early release.


The votes

are in!
By Milind Khurana and
Evan Napper
SEBRING The class
has voted and in a stunning
victory Connor Angell
became the student council
representative for Mrs.
Comers' class. When inter-
viewed, Connor stated that
he very much enjoys it, and
it made him feel good that
the class supported him. He
also mentioned that there
will probably be other
fundraisers coming up soon
such as the canned food
drive for the needy.
If you missed the chance
to run for student council,
here's how it works. First,
you would tell the teacher if
you want to run. Then you
would write a speech that
introduces you to your class-
mates, hoping they will vote
for you. When you give the
speech, you would talk
about things such as ways to
improve the school. After
all, the candidates have
given their speeches, the
class will vote by secret bal-
lot. This is an amazing
opportunity to help improve
the school.

By Evan Napper
SEBRING During pull-out
classes on Mondays, students
from the fifth grade HAART
class to the computer lab to prac-
tice reading, math, science, and
writing skills. Compass

Elijah Gavarrete, a classmate,

We think Compass Learning
is a great program which helps

achievement. It is also fun, and
we all hope to continue using
this program.


Book Review: Moby Dick filled with adventure


By Armon Luckenbach
The story of whalemen hunting the white whale
is famous from coast to coast. Captain Ahab is
filled with revenge to demolish the white whale
which took his leg. Moby Dick is an old and strong
sperm whale. Many harpoons have struck him, yet
he destroys every ship that strikes him. He is
strangely white unlike most sperm whales.
His crew sailed across the ocean in the Pequod.
Gathering oil from whales was a main fuel for
lamps in the 1800's.


Moby Dick is searched for all times. It's like
finding a needle in a haystack, nearly impossible.
However, the gruesome end can be discovered by
the reader. An enthusiastic story with many adven-
tures lies in the book. At Sun 'n Lake Elementary
School, it's worth 42 Accelerated Reading (AR)
points.
My own original edition is 543 pages including
the epilogue, and it is very small print. I suggest
only advanced readers read this immense book.


By Renz Torres and Milind
Khurana
SEBRING The second
Annual Taekwondo tourna-
ment was being held in Hill-
Gustat Middle on Oct. 27.
There were many activities to
see and do at the competition,
which included board break-
ing, sparring, and a Korean
art called forms.
Milind Khurana was in the
Pencak Silat Martial Arts
class led by Master
Ferdinand "Francis" L. Pisa.
The competing class was
Chung's Martial Arts. A few
students from Chung's were
doing a demonstration in


which they broke boards, by
punching and kicking 1-5
boards or semi blocks.
At the end of the display the
spectators clapped and
cheered for them. After lunch


it was time to spar. Everyone
put on their body gear, mouth
gear, and helmets. The two
opponents walked to the fight-
ing mat and stood still, feet
together. They then bowed to
the Korean, Philippine, and
American flag, and then the
fight commenced. Kicks and
Punches were made and
blocked.
The fight lasted for five min-
utes. The person with the most
hits and the most points win.
At the end of the tournament,
the Pencak Silat Martial Arts
class gathered around the win-
ners' circle and flashed a pic-
ture. What a good day!


New teachers welcomed to school


By Alana Reid and J.T. Tantillo
SEBRING Sun 'n Lake is proud to welcome
the many new teachers here today. Some of these
new teachers come from big cities like Tampa and
others come from small towns like Valrico, florida.
We just don't have new classroom teachers, but
new RE. teachers as well.
New teachers from everywhere are coming to
Sun 'n Lake.
Did you know that in 1967, over 30,000 teachers
appeared at the Tangerine Bowl for a Teachers'
Festival! Now that's a lot of teachers.
If over 30,000 can attend a festival, how many
teachers do you think there are in the State of
Florida! Plus, with our school growing, we need
many more teachers in Florida.


Some of the new teachers to our
school this year are Christina
Chavis, Erielle Rancourt, Jeannie
Inagawa.
One teacher that I found a bit
interesting was Christiana Chavis.
She is now teaching first grade.
Her former job was to be a
Chavis Senior Certified Pharmacist at
Walgreen's. She would "teach the
employees how to do their job."
Last, but never the least, all teachers at Sun 'n
Lake Elementary School have three things in com-
mon. One, is that they love to teach. Two, they
enjoy the friendly atmosphere. Three, they love
the even more friendlier students!


Students proud to be drug free


By Jessica Belcher, Alana Reid,
and Ashley White
SEBRING Oct. 22 25,
2007 was Red Ribbon Week in
Highland County Schools.
Everyone wore their red ribbons
and wristbands as they celebrat-
ed being drug free. There were
many activities and contests for
students in Grades K-5. For
example, students could draw a
poster or write an essay on why


they choose to be drug free.
Calvin Thacker, a fifth grade stu-
dent in Mrs. Brenner's Class
won the poster contest. Students
in K-2 could design a tee shirt
All the classes at Sun 'n Lake
were invited to decorate their
classroom door.
Also, every day had a special
there. For instance, Monday:
athletic clothes; Tuesday: crazy


sock day; Wednesday: wear red;
Thursday: mix 'n match clothes;
and Friday: school spirit day.
The main idea was to learn about
drug awareness and why we
should not do drugs We have
learned that drugs ruin the lives
of kids and their families as well.
We learned positive alternatives
to drugs. We can really say,
"Look at me, I'm drug free!"


Melanoma: JT's had it, and who's at risk?


By Renz-Patrick Torres
SEBRING- Melanoma is
one of the most serious forms of
skin cancer. It's nearly 100 per-
cent curable recognized and
treated early. In John Tantillo's
case, he was lucky to be seen at
an early stage. It started as a reg-
ular looking mole which grew


Lights,


camera,


action!
By Michael Divietro and
J.T. Tantillo
SEBRING Sun 'n Lake
Elementary School in Sebring,
Florida has a unique way of
announcing events. The class-
rooms turn on their TV. to
Channel 2. What do they watch?
The morning news, WSNL!
The way the production studio
works is that the editors/techni-
cians and announcers go
through the school library into a
very small, dark room. This is
where the producers make their
magic!
They are busier than a traffic
jam in New York City. This room
has cameras, computers, projec-
tors, screens, keyboards, and
almost everything you would
need to produce the perfect
school news.
As an editor, your job is to


fast within weeks.
People with fair complexion
are prone to develop Melanoma.
Other risk factors are if you live
in a higher sunlight area such as
the tropics and Australia, those
with a family history of skin can-
cer, and also if you have more
moles then usual.


Preventative measures are,
don't go out in the sun from 10
a.m. to 4 pm. Use a sun block of
SPE 15-plus and wear light-col-
ored clothing to reflect sunlight.
J.T had to undergo surgical
incisions to permanently remove
the mole.


write and rewrite lunch menus,
announcements, and quotes of
the day.
Sometimes we have music to
go with the news. A program


called Visual Communicator and
a V-screen uses light to make a
background.
When everybody is in place,
its lights!...camera!...action!

Fun toy,


or Castle


of Doom?
By Patrick Pineda and
Casey Williams
SEBRING Top sellers for a
P.T.O fundraiser were recently
given a party as a reward for sell-
ing five or more items.
It all started out as the entire
Sun 'n Lake Elementary School
were given the mission to be the
best fundraising school in
Sebring. Days passed by with
kids returning their packages
with big bundles of checks and
money showing how hard they
worked just to be given the
honor of buying items with the
$150 prize money. Everyone
hoped to be one of the lucky per-
sons to at least win the chance to
go to the Cookie Dough Pig-out
Party.
Suddenly, on that special
school day, the production studio
announcer was about to declare
the lucky winner of the $150
prize money. The winning class
at each grade level was about to
be announced as we all sat with
our fingers crossed.
But then to our dismay, the
winning class for the fifth grade
was not ours, but Mr. Thacker's
class. So the rest of the day we
were as gloomy as we are during
a rainy summer's day. So we


returned to our original class
schedule.
However, a few weeks later,
during the morning news, the
announcer reported the names
of all the students who would be
able to go to the Mega Inflatable
Party for being top sellers of the
fundraiser. As our names were
being
announced, we were excited
because it would be THIS after-
noon that we could miss some
class time and have some fun!
Patiently, we waited and waited
until we were lined up, checked
in, and took off our socks and
shoes.


We were then launched into a
land full of bouncy plastic. There
were castles, obstacle courses,
and a 3-foot bounce slide, but
most of all KIDS!!! Kids were
running in every direction,
north, south east, and west,
forming long lines to get on the
attractions. No one wanted to
waste their 30 minutes of fun.
But all things don't last, and so
our 30 minutes eventually ended.
Sadly, we put on our shoes,
socks, and went back to the
classroom with one thing in
mind, and that was how you
could have SO much fun in 30
minutes with bouncy plastic?


Quiz Bowl offers challenge to HAART students


By Matthew Bivens
SEBRING In HAART you can participate in a
quiz bowl competition. To be a contestant, you
have to be a fourth or fifth grade HAART student.
This is a countywide competition and this will be
our third year.
To get on the team at Sun 'n Lake, you have take
a written test of your knowledge of important facts
in science, social studies, math, etc. The six stu-


practice after school


in a coaching session with Mrs. Stephens and Mrs.
Comers. Then they will be in a runoff quiz bowl at
our school. We always get outside judges such as
our former principal, Mr. Pippon, .
The judges decide who the four team members
will be after adding up the scores.The winners will
go on to the countywide competition in the spring
and will compete with fourth and fifth grade stu-
dents all over the county. The competition is fierce,
but we think it is fun!


On Nov. 9, our school held a
program on behalf of the veter-
ans. We all wore red, white, and
blue to honor them. The ROTC
from Sebring and Avon Park
were present as well. The cho-
rus sang two songs, "Grateful to
be an American" and "Fifty Nifty
United States". Each grade level
from kindergarten to fifth grade
each sang their special song.
Mrs. Brenner's class recited the


poem, "Flanders Field". Mrs.
Freeland's class recited a poem
from the word "veteran".
Mrs. Lethbridge gave a
speech expressing how grateful
we are to our veterans. Last, but
not least, we had all the veterans
stand up to be recognize, and
each one was presented with a
pin. This is the way Sun 'n Lake
students choose to honor veter-
ans and our fallen heroes.


Emporia, Kansas had a Veterans
Day observance instead of an
Armistice day remembrance. A
representative from Kansans
introduced the idea to the House
of Representatives. They decid-
ed to change Armistice Day to
Veterans Day on June 1, 1954.

Editoiral & Opinion


A- Friendship is more than a word


Friends are people closer to
you than others. A good friend
or companion has to like to
interact or relate to you, be loyal
and trustworthy, and be able to
understand.
To begin with, being able to
relate to someone is difficult.
However, it is necessary
because then they'll respect you
and be there for you. It's easy
once you know the principles -
just find someone that does the
same activities. It doesn't mat-
ter-sports, music, art, and even


academics. You get to know
someone, and it makes a good
friendship.
Now to become a nice friend,
loyalty is the main key. When
you're loyal and trustworthy,
your friend will try to kind also.
It helps because he can count
on you to be an honest friend. If
anything goes wrong, he or she
can help you. So in both ways,
you have an advantage.
Last, but not least, being able
to understand someone else is
vital, considering you have to be


a kind friend to
do so. It can
help you in the
future also. It
ties together By Armon
true friendship. Luckenbach
for instance, if
someone moved away, being
able to accept it would take a
strong heart.
To conclude, all of these
things make a splendid friend.
Having friends in life is impor-
tant, considering they can help
you in the long run in life.

Three cheers for the cafeteria ladies


By Connor Angell, Jessica Belcher
and Ashley White
Walking into the sun 'n Lake Elementary cafete-
ria make could make stomachs growl. The smell of
the food makes you feel like you are in a gourmet
restaurant especially on the day chicken nuggets
and mashed potatoes are served. The chicken
nuggets are shaped in charming stars and are pure
white meat. They are crisp and juicy when bitten
into. along with the standard lunch served, our
cafeteria staff works extra hard to provide break-
fast every morning. This is not just dry cereal in a
bowl. Instead, they whip up things like sausage
biscuits and much more. Entering the Sun 'n Lake
cafeteria is a true treat for everyone's taste buds.
, You may not appreciate how hard our cooks and
cafeteria ladies work. Mrs. Tasha Hunter is the


manager of the cafeteria. Can you imagine what
time they wake up every morning and what time
they get to school? Mrs. Hunter gets up at 4:45
a.m. and gets to work at 5:15 a.m. The latest she
can be is 6 a.m.
As soon as she gets there, she starts cooling the
coolers and starts preparing breakfast just for us
kids, imagine that! According to Mrs. Tasha, they
make 725 bagged breakfasts every morning.
Once they are done with that, they start preparing
lunch. If you think that's a lot of breakfasts, they
prepare over 800 lunches for kids every day.
In case you were wondering, they trays you eat
off are recycled, not reused!
The next time you see a lunch lady, give-her an
enormous THANK YOU and lots of LOVE!


Recess, anyone? Play time


important to students


On most days, the sun shines
brightly on the playground at
Sun 'n Lake
Elementary. This makes the
perfect place for students to
have a recess break.
The playground has two enor-
mous play-sets, a colossal slide,
a jungle gym, and a four square
court.


It provides a marvelous
atmosphere for students to relax
and have fun after working hard
in the classroom
A popular activity is to play
shark and minnow tag.
Students have fun as they dart
around trying not to get tagged.
The last one standing is the win-
ner.


It can be M
very challeng- By Connor

the opportunity to unwind while

E.P.G.Y math educates gifted students


By Hunter Livingston, Armon Luckenbach and
Renz Torres
An opening door and rushing feet is the first
sound you hear in the morning. Students are try-
ing to enter the computer lab for E.P.G.Y. Math.
This is an online math league for gifted students.
Stanford University created the program to be used
as enrichment for gifted math students. It is being
used in schools all around the Highlands County.
At Sun n' Lake Elementary, there are three fifth


graders from the HAART class in the program.
They had to score above 85% on the End-of-the-Year
Math test given at the beginning of the school year.
After one month's time, it is second nature to them.
It is a worthwhile program because your math
skills will soar after a little time. It was started last
year, so it's new, but sufficient. This educational
program stands for Educational Program for Gifted
Youth, a good acronym, I think.


Halloween, a legend and tradition


By Patrick Pineda
Witches, ghost, ghouls, and
candy those are some of the
things that you will find in a mod-
ern day celebration of
Halloween. But did you know
that in earlier times, Halloween
was really not a day for wearing
dazzling costumes and eating
sweet delicious treats? It was a
day full of hard work from cut-
ting trees to be used as logs to
collecting rice treats for the sick
and elderly.
Those days weren't good days
for kids to run around to houses
asking for treats. It was a day for
celebrating the annual Somhain
which is the ceremony of the
dead Druids were foretelling
the future for the next year.
After the' druids fortell the


future, it was time for the feast
and party to celebrate events of
the past year.
Modern Halloween, as we all
know it, is full of tricks, treats,
and cool costumes, but guess
what? While the kids are out
trick-or-treating, the parents get
an advanced dental appointment
to take care of all the cavities
kids get from eating the candy!
Finally, Halloween is not just
about the treats, it's about the
tricks like the usual dollar on a
fishing line and the occasional
coin on the floor. So kids, next
time you see a dollar or coin on
the floor, never try to pick it up
because it's a trick and you
might end up being laughed at.
After all it's Halloween!


Scary but wary on Halloween


By Renz Torres
Halloween, it's not just ghost
and ghouls with scary fries with
a shake on the side.
We asked people on the lines
what was Halloween to them
about. The answer, Candy,
Candy, and CANDY! And in our
opinion, they are right!
As our group of trick or
treaters got ready, the parents
shot the starting gun hypotheti-
cally speaking. We boomed
south down the street to every
house.
But unfortunately until 12


houses later, every house was
empty. No person was living
there because they are still up
north. It was still October
though.
We strolled every street with
Vi of the houses with no candy.
Our bags weren't even full like
last year! What a drag. . But
there was a good side; we had a
mega party back at the house
with pizza!
Unfortunately, we were
pooped, so we couldn't even lift
the pizza.

Students learn about the injured dolphins at Mote Marine.


A field trip to an aquatic heaven


By Renz Torres
SARASOTA- Mote Marine
is an environment of many exotic
fish, birds, and other animals.
There is a hospital for marine
life such as dolphins and mana-
tees, a full-sized aquarium, and
that's not even the half of it! First
we went to a huge theater where
we got to interact with our host
on the screen; we talked about
the many terrifying characteris-
tics of the fish in the sea.
But the best part was when
the computer making this hap-
pen glitched up, and we could
see ourselves on the big screen!
When we left the theater we
went to a dock where if you
looked in the water, you could
see millions of egg sacks that
looked like skin and jellyfish as
far as the eye can see. If you
looked around over the bay you
could see many birds such as
seagulls, herons, and as many
birds that were there, you could
see as many bird nests as birds.
We then left the dock seeing a
guy surfing along the bay.
We ate a quick lunch by our
buses. The boys then saw a
friend Alex Bilbey from Avon
Elementary; it was like a
reunion! We left the lunch area,
and went to the hospital.
The first aquatics we saw two
sick dolphins, the spinner
Harley., and the bottlenose
Moonshine, when he had the


chance jumped up in the air and
span like crazy! But he always
gets "stuck" in a ring. But it
almost seems like one is trying
to impress the other. We left the
area and then saw fishing net
that we had to crawl through, it
makes you think how a fish feels
when it gets caught in a net.
When we exited out of the
fishing net we saw a turtle tank.
If you looked at the turtle when it
passed near you it might wave.
When J.T looked at them, they
waved at him the most.
Turning right you'll see many
turtles swimming rapidly about.
A couple of them have lost a fin.
Aww... We left the area then saw
two manatees joyfully swimming
about. From an angle you could
see them nibbling lettuce. Our
guide told us that they were eat-
ing Roman lettuce, the most
expensive type of lettuce.
Walking left you could see two
things, a stairway, and an area
about garbage disposal. I went
up the stairs to a gift shop, and
saw there were only toys and
drinks there. Realizing that the
group was already leaving, I
rushed over to the group, panti-
ng because of all the walking
we've done.
We went inside the aquarium
and it is enormous! Bunches of
fish were in tanks from different
parts of the world. Some had dif-
ferent characteristics like cam-
ouflage. When we walked out of


the aquarium you could see a
giant squid in a tank, but it is
dead. Fishermen caught the
squid in the Australia-New
Zealand area. They sent it in a
packing material that shrank the
squid during the trip to Mote
Marine. Right now it is 8 feet
long.
We left the area and walked to
a bazaar-looking like area except
that instead of begging you to
buy something, they tell you
about things such as saving coral
reefs, dumping your trash, and
what king of fish are good to eat.
Walking left of the area you will
see a shark tank and a touch
tank. There were different types
of the sharks such as the ham-
merhead. The touch tank had
many things to see, mainly coral,
and sea urchins.
Our class left the tank to go
into a theater. The theater was
showing a clip about sharks'
body, and we had to imagine how
a shark hunts. We then left to go
to the stingray touch tank. The
stingrays were swimming away,
not letting anyone except who
they like, not a lot of people. We
then left the touch tank to go to
the gift shop. The students of our
class liked in the shop the most,
the mood rings. Personally I
don't know what the big deal is;
it's just a ring that changes color.
When it was time to go, we
went to the buses waving good-
bye to Mote Marine. '

readers.
"Once you have gone through
all the main library books, there
isn't anything much left," stated
Jessica Saenz.
That's why Sun n' Lake
Elementary is in need of new
books for advanced students, not
for just entertainment, but to
also learn and let our minds
grow.


Students


push it to


the limit in


P.E. class

By Jessica Saenz
SEBRING When the whis-
tle blows, the sound of a stam-
pede vibrates the ground. The
sound of kids running past their
coaches to run their laps around
the equipment spreads through
the air. It's easy to tell that P.E.
has started! When the students
return to the covered area, there
are jump ropes surrounding the
cement.
The head coach calls students
by their circle color to jump 25
times. Students must put effort
into this requirement so it can
be finished on time.
After everyone is finished, the
coaches give the students an
activity to do. For example, on
some days, they might play
Dodgeball which is a challeng-
ing and fun game to play! On
other days they will play Man on
Mars when some kids are cho-
sen to take off the kids' belts
before they run past the cones.
Sometimes students just play
Four Square or just shoot bas-
kets. However, every activity
has the same amount of fun,
although all kids have their own
opinion.
At the end of P.E., the classes
line up and wait for their teacher
to pick them up and return to
class until the next adventure!

Mr. Tufflev,


the teacher
By Jessica Belcher and
Ashley White
During the months of October and
November, we have had Mr. Tuffley
come into our classroom at Sun 'n Lake.
Mr. Tuffley comes from News-Sun
every Wednesday to help Mrs. Mary
comers' class and talks about writing a
newspaper and how you would make it
interesting so your family and friends
will read it. So we were able to make our
own newspaper.
Each one of us students had to write
an article about a different subject.
When we were finished, we had more .
than 24 articles for the newspaper.
There were all kinds of topics such as
the Veteran's Day Programs. We had
the experience of writing the newspaper
from beginning to end. It was so awe-
some! ,B
We also got to meet Scott Dressel, the
editor of News Sun, who took a day away .?' -. .
from work and paginated our newspaper
before our very eyes. Thank you Mr.
Tuffley and Mr. Dressel! Mrs. Comer's class visits the News-Sun.

An inside look at the News-Sun
By Brandon Bowyer, Elijah Garrete
and Armon Luckenbach
SEBRING The fifth grade HAART Class at Sun 'n Laike
Elementary visited the newspaper office of the News-Sun. Mr.
Christopher Tuffley, a reporter for the newspaper, was our tour
guide for this really interesting field trip. But he was not the
only person who helped us.
Mr. Rice basically told us how they format the newspaper.
First they would get the articles of the newspaper from a com-
puter.
Then they would send the photos to a second computer so
they could change the size, color, or crop the pictures.
On the third computer, the photos were turned into positives
and negatives. Then the newspaper articles would be printed
out with their text on a special photo material.
Later on, Mr. Rice showed us some old newspaper editions.
They were in record books which showed the papers printed
during a particular year.
We were then introduced to cubicles where reporters, pho-
tographers, and editors work. The space was very little space,
so being organized is important to them.
Finally we went to see the printing press. There were large
drums which held oil for the printing press. As the papers were
printed, the papers were held on a belt. At large stations
between the belts, different colors of print were put on the
paper.
Once printed, they were sent to a mail room. There they
were packaged by a machine and stacked in huge piles.
Unfortunately, we had to leave. This was definitely a once-in-
a-lifetime experience for us.

2007 All-Heartland Football Team


Hardee's Grimsley earns Player of the Year

/ 4 .


2007 PLAYER OF THE YEAR
:,, rimsiey
B t ardee

1.


W By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
It might seem a simple task,
selecting an All-Star football team .
from among four schools, and in
most seasons it might be.
And while there were definitive stand- ,,
outs on each school team, tough seasons
for two teams and injuries among all teamni
give somewhat of an incomplete picture -
making the selections all the more difficult
Heading the list, however, were two
Hardee Wildcats that were pleasant surprises
given the circumstances.
Tim Price, the News-Sun All-Heartlard
Coach of the Year saw his first season at the
helm of Hardee become a very successful
one, leading the Wildcats to second place in
the district standings and a trip to the post-
season.
Helping in that cause is our Player of the
Year, Wildcat Jordan Grimsley.
With starting quarterback Esai Youyoute
going down in the first game of the season,
.Grimsley stepped in and did an admirable job
under tough conditions and helped Hardee to
a 6-4 record and a playoff berth.
He made his mark in many ways during the
season, rushing 61 times for 587 yards and
five touchdowns, catching four passes (he
switched to wide receiver upon Youyoute's
return) for 80 yards and three more touch-
downs and he returned three punts for touch-
downs as well.
"He had numerous ones called back, too,"
Price mentioned.
Not to mention, Grimsley deflected many
pass attempts as part of the Wildcat second-
ary.
Joining Grimsley in the backfield is our
Offensive Player of the Year, Sebring running
back T.J. Williams, who battled through
injuries to play in all but one game for the 5-
4 Blue Streaks, amassing 1,539 yards and
rushing for 14 touchdowns.
Williams also showed his arm was nearly
as valuable as his legs, throwing for 483


r


*l l "r I ",,
touch-
downs.
Filling out
the backfield
are Hardee run-
ning backs Jimmy
Cimeus and Jayquan
Gandy.
Playing in seven games before falling to
injury, Cimeus amassed 670 yards on 110 car-
ries, scoring 11 touchdowns on the ground
and one on a pass reception.
It shows his value in that the Wildcats lost
their final three games with him on the side-
lines.
Gandy totaled 740 yards on the season with
123 carries and six touchdowns.
Sebring's Sam Robinson and Lake Placid's
Richard Rooks are the All-Heartland wide
receivers, and though the passing attacks for
the Streaks and Dragons weren't prolific,
these two were a constant safety net for the
quarterback looking to get rid of the ball.
Robinson was a dual threat as well, catch-
ing 662 yards worth of passes for nine touch-
downs, and rushing for another 300 yards and
three TDs.
What makes any good offense go are the
big boys up front, the offensive linemen.
Standing out this year in their battles down
in the trenches were Avon Park's Chris

South-Central Florida All-Star Football Classic

Central clobbers South, 42-6


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Turnovers
and penalties added time to
15-minute quarters making the
game last well over three
hours, but the extra time did
not seem to play a large factor
in the South-Central Florida
All-Star Football Classic held
last Saturday.
Made up of Avon Park,
Bartow, Fort Meade, Haines
City, Hardee, Lake Wales,
Lake Placid, Sebring and
Okeechobee, Central was
slightly more organized with
their plays and execution, and
it showed on the scoreboard
with a 42-6 win, the most lop-
sided game in the nine-year
history of the Classic.
Facing off against the seem-
ingly larger players from
South consisting of Charlotte,
Poet Charlotte, North Port,
Lemon Bay, DeSoto, Moore
Haven and LeBelle high
schools, the Central team had
to truly on speed and agility to
win, and they did.
Coached by Tim Grant from
Lake Placid, Central had the
game almost secured when
Sebring's own T.J. Williams
scored just before the second
quarter ended.

TEAM
Continued from 1D
Bowers and Kyle Jackson,
Hardee's Carlos Ramirez and
Sebring's Ty Graham and
Isaac Fernandez.
On the defensive side of
the ball, as with the offense,
it all starts on the defensive
line.
Those along the front line
that made their impact felt
this past season were headed
by Hardee defensive end
Postene Louisjeune who
totaled 63 tackles, 14 tack-
les-for-loss and three sacks.
Joining him on the Bruise
Brothers line are Avon Park
defensive end Fred Mixon,
Lake Placid defensive tackle
Travalier Sholtz and Sebring
lineman Kyle Long who
totaled 135 tackles and 11
sacks.
The linebacking corps is
where you see the big hitters
and nobody did more hitting
than Hardee middle line-
backer David Newcomb.
For the season Newcomb
racked up some impressive
numbers with 135 tackles, 19
tackles-for-loss, 2%2 sacks,
five fumble recoveries and an


interception.
Flanking Newcomb on the
All-Heartland team are hard-
hitting Green Dragon
Rashaad Brown and Blue
Streak Brannen Dorman.
In the defensive backfield
it's a mix of Wildcats and
Blue Streaks with Wade
Mahoney and Olnel Virgil of
Hardee along with Ronnie
Brassell and J.C. Howard of
Sebring.
Mahoney accounted for
103 tackles this season along
with 1' 2 sacks and a fumble
recovery while Virgil, despite
only appearing in five games
had 44 tackles, one intercep-
tion and one fumble recov-
ery.
Brassell nabbed three
opponents passes this year,
while Howard picked off
seven.
In all, this season in the
Heartland wasn't as success-
ful, team-wise, as many
would have hoped.
But very strong perform-
ances by this list of players,
along with those that didn't
quite make the cut, gave fans
plenty to cheer about and
collectively make one
impressive looking squad.

T.J. Williams (above) led all area running backs with over
1,500 yards this season, despite missing the opening game
and battling ankle injuries all year. Hardee head coach Tim
Price (left) led the Wildcats to the playoffs in his first season
at the helm, and David Newcome (44, below) led a swarm-
ing Hardee defense.


CENTRAL
Continued from ID
"We wanted to protect our
home turf," said Grant. "It was
easy to coach a team with play-
ers like Long from Sebring and
Fred Mixon from Avon Park.
They stepped up and played
hard."
A 59-yard touchdown run by
quarterback Darrell Sirmons of
Haines City and a 15-yard pass
from Sirmons to Sebring's Sam
Robinson made it 14-0 at the
end of the first quarter.
Sebring's Kyle Long, the
defensive MVP, blocked a punt
that was covered in the end
zone for a score and Williams'
9-yard TD run made it a 28-0
runaway at halftime.
"They (South) were big.
They had the beef and we had
the chicken wings," Grant said.
"Our strategy was to get on
the left hash and run wide right.
For the size of the line I had,
those guys stayed after it. Most
of these players had great tech-
nique. These guys have been
coached very well all season."
Williams ended the season
having played just nine games,
but with 1,539 yards rushing
for the Streaks.
Behind 28-0 at the half,
South would get their only
score from a 49-yard rush by
Okeechobee's Timmy Williams
with just 1:59 left on the clock
in the third quarter.
But Central's defensive, led
by Long, did not waiver and
continued to harass South the
rest of the night holding them
to just under 150 yards total
offense.
"I was asked if I would do
this again, and the answer was
'Yes.' This was fun," said
Grant.


THE BIG BUYS HAVE

LOTS OF ITEMS...

I HAVE THAT ONE UNIQUE,

SPECIAL GIFT.
