By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY

SEBRING Sarah Adelt. interim
city manager, announced Tuesday
evening that she had selected
Matthewi Doughney (pronounced
Down-ey). a city of Daytona Beach
police captain. to become the new
Avon Park chief of police-


There was an unmistakable sound
of relief in her voice during a tele-
phone interview late Tuesday after-
noon.
"Matt's strong points are his edu-
cation. his broad range of knowl-
edge, and his innovative ideas,
Adelt said.
She added that Doughney was


experienced wiih budgeting and
supervising a department larger than
thie entire Avon Park police f~orce.
"We're excited." Adelt. said. "(The
process of choosing a police chief)
has given me the opportunity to
grow by working closely with the
search committee andi with law
enforcement (throughout the coun-


ty)," she said, adding, "with every
challenge, there is an opportunity for
growth ." ,
Doughney, having served in the
United States Air Force, earned a
bachelor of' science from the
University of Central Florida in
criminal justice and has served with
the City of Daytona Beach police


department since 1992, working his
way up from traffic unit officer to
supervising captain.
Adelt said the choice was condi-
tional upon final clearances and
background checks, but no compli-
critions are expected. If everything
goes according to plan, Doughney
could be at work by the end of April.

Three running for two

seats in Tuesday election

By MATT MURPHY

LAKE PLACID Steve Bastardi, Lynn
Colnnolly and Ray Royce are running to fill
two open positions on the Lake Placid TownI
Council, which were created when current
members Jim Waller and Debra Worley
declined to seek re-election. The trio fielded
questions Monday in a forum co-spqnsored by
the Town of Lake Placid and
the Lake Placid Jour-nal.
A look at each of the three
candidates, based on their
statements and answers at
Monday's forum:
u Steve Bastardi- is the
oyvner of Internet service
provider Home Town Network Bastardi
and a member of the town's
Local Planning -Agency and
Growth Management Council.
He is also a board member of
the Lake Placid Mural Society
and Keep Lake Placid
Beautiful. He has lived in Lake
Placid for about 16 years and
his company currently provides Connolly
information technology for the
town .
Among his top twiorities as
council member would be
addressing the issue of excess
storm water runoff, including
puddling during heavy rain-
stormns. He also wants to focus
'on providing opportunities for Royce
younger citizens, and stiid pres-
sure should be put on developers to- create
workforce housing for lower-income workers.
Bastardi said if big box stores were to be
built, he would prefer to see them on Highway
70 so they could get cross traffic from Arcadia
and Okeechobee. As for annexation, he said it
should "bring value to people that are being
annexed .
In terms of the budget, Bastardi said because
the town's millage rate hasn't changed over the

SEBRING There were no surprises Tuesday when coun-
ty commissioners unanimously voted to make no0 changes to
impact fees.
Their vote was in part based on the recommendation from
the Impact Fee Review Comm-ittee that met Friday and voted
9-2 to that effect.
After Friday's meeting, Commissioner C. Guy Maxcy
apologized for any grief his fellow board members received
and urged them and other elected officers to continue seeking
ways to stimulate the economy.
"The only way to cr~eate. a real impact is to create jobs,"
Commissioner Andrew Jackson said.
Maxcy said Idriday he is shifting focus to cutting the budg-
et and Tuesday he reiteralted that an impact fee abatement

"I think the idea to stimulate the local economy is still a
good idea," Commissioner Barbara Stewart said.
The board appeared in general agreement and Maxcy sug-
gested exploring other ideas once "the dust. has settled."
Wh~en Maxcy first floated his impact fee suspension idea in
February, the News-Sun inquired whether allowing two gas

SEBRING Whe Cod
Enforcement Officer April
Hartseil went snipe hunting in
September, some of her prey
was too big for the bed of her
truck.
Snipe signs are the fly-by-
night type of advertising signs
that creep up in medians and
along the road whenever
another "once-in-a-lif'etime"
sale blows through. *
The illegally placed signs
are considered eye-sores and
they vi late coun y or finance,
but are usually easily eradi-
cated.
Some of the signs are larg-
er and more permanent, how-
ever. These were a topic of
discussion at Tuesday's coun-
ty commission meeting,
where Gary Puckett, on
behalf of Trinity
Development and Eldridge
Pollard Sales, asked for an
exception .
Between U.S. 27 and
Broadway Street (just north
of Whatley Boulevard) there's
a county-owned right of way


'The whl id a

is to beautify and

rnake this whole

thing better.

GARY PUCKETT
business owner
of 80 feet.
Several business along
Broadway have signs in the
right of way, a violation of the
county ordinance.
Phckett said Pollard wants
permission to improve the
right of way, which dead-ends
at private property north of -
Pinch-A-Penny.
"If we take the lead on this
it sets a tone for the rest of the
development along here,"
Puckett told the board, sug-
gesting landscaping and some
organization of the signs.
"The whole idea is to beautify
and make this whole thing
better."
Commissioner Andrew
Jackson asked Ross MacBeth,
county attorney, to define
"temporary" because the ordi-


nance allows for temlporary
signs. However, several busi-
nesses' signs fall somewhere
between temporary aund per-
manent.
MacBeth said Pucelket's
idea was valid and likely
would result in other owners
improving their surroundings.
He noted that parking is u.tra-
ditional use of county ri ht of
way spaces.
However, to allow perma
nent signs (the 'pile-on' sign
across the way at the Shops at
Shelby Crossing was used as
an example) th~e county would
have to amend its Land
Development Regulations.
Stewart said the county has
been guilty of "selective
enforcement" and must move
forward with "fairness and
equity" in mindl for all busi-
nesses.
The board agreedl to allow
Puckettl a month to meet willi
otherl business owners and
formulate a plaun that, at their
own cost, would allow them
to landlscape and improve the
right of way in exchange f'or
permission to PutL sig~nS on it.

Only~a fool woukI go surfing in the snow, right.


"go" was said, all were off
for a race against their own
time.
As I was trotting along, I
realized just how important it
was to keep in pace with
yorel no eeher around
who were like the Road
Runner. And sure, there were
some who were falling behind
everyone else. Yet all of this
did not matter.
During the next moments,
as the sun was peaking its
way into the wooden lane, I
thought how this was just a
correlation to life. Even if we
are after the same goal, we all
have different talents and
strengths to get us to the fin-
ishing line.
In the end, I finished this
run. With the beads of sweat
still dripping down, I realized
just how important it is to run
your own race. And how
much easier it is when others
are around you, cheering you
on. Those simple words will
encourage you to give your
all, even if it is at the end of it
very long r~ace.

wet suit was a hair too small
so I was also getting a resist-
ance workout on tdp of the
surf workout.
When it was all said and
done, I did decide one thing
- anyone who surfs Lakie
Michigan in snow is truly a
righteous surfer. The most
righteous of the righteous in
fact. Because there are no
cute girls in skimpy bikinis
watching you. No, the only
people who stop to watch
you are old guys who think
you are mentally unstable.
You don't get a nice tan,
either. In fact, I am pretty
sure you come out more
pasty than when you started.
No, if you surf Lake
Michigan in the snow it has
to either be for the love of
surfing, or it's an April
Fool's prank.

lege in Michigan.

scored the bill, is disingenuous.
Sen. Gelber sponsored the voter
machine reform bill. The Republicans
added the early vote amendment to the
bill. The Democrats wanted the election
reform bill so that the ballots could be
counted and verified, which was` not the
case for eight years.
The fact that the Republican legisla-
ture added that amendment, knowing
that the Democrats would go along to
insure passage of the voter reform bill,
apparently has been "overlooked." That
they violated the national party's rules
appear to be dismissed, with no penalty
for them. Yet, the democratic voters are
being penalized because of that early
vote amendment. Now a new vote could
cost $20 million; but, "that's not Gov.
Crist's problem."

Trust the Bible, not the Internet
Editor.
It is Easter time again and there are
those busy on the Internet spreading the
word of who the Anti-Christ is ... this
year.
Every year this time instead of
remembering Jesus Christ being cruci-
fied and dying on the cross for our sins,
to be put it a tomb and Christ's resurrec-
tion to be part of our lives forever and
ever seems to be the intent of those to
take our thoughts from the Lord Jesus
Christ that he died for our sips and
bring out another candidate for being
the Anti-Christ
Who'ever it is that thinks up who the
Anti-Christ is not doing the believers, in
Christ any favors, as if we who have the
Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior are to
have someone remind us of who the
Anti-Christ is. Next Easter season it will
be another person who is the Anti-Christ
... to have Christians believe. *'
Remember "That after Jesus was cru-
cified, pronounced dead and sealed in a
tomb, many were ready to erect his
tombstone and write "finished" on it ...
But Peter's epistle assured early
Christians that the Rock upon which


their faith was founded was a living
stone, enduring and powerful ... The
crucifixion did not chisel the final date
in Jesus' tombstone. Rather the resurrec-
tion laid the cornerstone of the Christian
faith, a monument that will last forev-
er." (2008 Upper Room).
Are these Internet findings of who the
Anti-Christ really the intent to put a
"finish" on Christ's tombstone so we as
Christians forget about the crucifixion
and the resurrection of Jesus Christ to
assure we who believe in Christ will
have ever lasting life?
Passing these Internet assumptions of
who the Anti-Christ is in 2008 on is an
assumption by mortal man, when only
God knows who the Anti-Christ is. and
lets depend on God when the time
comes God will inform we who believe
in Christ .
Let's keep Christ in our hearts and
minds at this Easter season of why
Christ was crucified and died for us, so
we who believe in Christ will have ever-
lasting life and go to our Bibles instead
of the Internet.

Wright's congregation
Shouldn't support him
Edit -:
Jeremriah Wright professes to be a
pastor, but I, as a born again Christian
have a problem accepting him as a pas-
tor. (Webster says of a pastor: A shep-
herd, to feed, a clergyman in 'charge of a
church or congregation, 1969 Edition).
When he uses the Lord's name mn vamn
(commandment No. 3 of the 10
Commandments) and spews hatred
towards his country and certain seg-
ments of our population, is not a man of
God but a rabble rouser and a failure- as
a man of God.
It amazes me that his congregation
continues to support him, including a
candidate for the presidency pf the
United States of America.

tion was filling my
blood stream. I was
gearing up to run my
first ever 5K run.
With the runners

was some where near

never done anything
like this before, I
wanted to gather in
all of the sights.

It was certainly a
first in my life. In all
of my years, I have
never run a whold
race before. To tell
you the truth, it was
one of those things
that I have always
wanted to do. Yet, at
the exact same time,
it was one of those
things that I was very
nervous about doing.
You see, I have


never been the runner type. It
was one of those sports that I
just could not wrap my mind
around doing. Perhaps it was
because I have two left feet.
Perhaps it is because my

either way, I had always
dreamed of doing it. Some
nights, I would spend hours
running through a meadow,
the air around me was
swirling. Yet, each time I
woke up, it turned out just to
be a dream.
About three years ago, my
college coach took me out
into a field after practice to
do "running lessons." After
each practice, she would
spend close to an hour show-
ing me just how to put one
foot in front of the other.
However embarrassed about
this I was at the time, I
learned how. qver time, I not
only learned about running,
but I learned how to actually
like it as well.
The morning dawned just
like any other morning, with
clear and beautiful skies. Yet
this particular morning would
be different than the others in
the past. My running shoes
were tied around my feet. My
T-shirt was on and anticipa

Anyway, I went and met
Ryan, my surf instructor for
the day. We drove to
Whiting, Ind., which is right
next to Chicago. Sure
enough, out in the water
were three real human beings
catching waves.
It took me a good 10 mi~-

my wet suit booties, my wet

April Fool's article.
I am not a big April Fool's
guy anyway. The last time I
can remember doing an April
Fool's prank was in second
grade when my whole class
hid in the bathroom when our
teacher left the room.
It took her about 10 min-
utes to come back and when
she did Richie Howard acci-
dentally flushed the toilet,
which gave us all away.
As I believe I have
expressed before, I think the
biggest April Fool's is on me.
Every time I look at my ther-
mometer and it reads in the
30s, I feel like Michigan and
Florida got together to play a
big prank on me.
Sheesh, I feel grumpy!
O3h wait, I did have non-

The morning I woke up to
go surfing, I walked out to
my car through two inches of
snow and spent five minutes
scraping ice off mny winld-

really questioning the sanity
of the whole thing. But for
some reason, I threw my
neon green towel in the pas-

Gas tax relief may not cure
the pain, but it would help
Editor:
Economic stimulus plan for
Highlands County. This plan is offered
under the following premise:
1) Proposed asphalt plant will
increase the amount of roads paved or
repaired at a reduced cost.
2) Majority of county residents need
relief.from current economic conditions.
Currently the state of Florida allows
counties to impose up to 20 cents per
gallon fuel tax to be levied on fuel sold
in the perspective county. Highlands
County has enacted the maximum. 20
cents per gallon. If the county would
suspend the 20 cents per gallon fuel tax
for a limited time, for example six
months, and a resident consumed 20
gallons per week, this would equal $4
per week saved, or $104 in six months.
$4 per week may not seem.1ike -much,
bu~t ifyou meli it sbby (onservat~ive-
would equate to $14,000 in one week.
Multiply this by 26 weeks (six months)
and it equates to $3,640,000.
Road maintenance will decrease,
however some of the decrease will be
offset by the savings gained by the resi-
dent owned asphalt plant. Furthermore'
the suspension of impact fees, we still
have the cost of employee wages (build-
ing department and landfill) and associ-
ated costs of growth,
I do not believe the sum of
$3,640,000 will cure the pain felt by
residents and business owners, but its a

Chapman Chamberlin

SEBRING -
Congratulations to the shuf-
flers from the club on the
Masters Tournament. Harold
Cunningham, Floyann Frey,
Don Rohman, Carol Weise,
and two first places Joan
Mondry and Bill Schaeffer.
These players were in the top
eight in their class to get
asked to compete in this one.
What an honor for them that
they will remember for the
rest of their life.
Have you looked at your
directory lately, to see those
that you have not seen for a
while? For the people that do
all the work on the directory
they should get a thank you
from each one of` us. We all
have a tendency to take every-
thing for granted.
It was good to see Bob and
Mary Adams out for the last
meeting. Dan and. Karen
Poulos are members that tray-
el from Lake Placid. They are
golf players and are not even
old, play shuffleboard and
other activities. Dan and
Karen spend summer in
Wisconsin, as several of our
members do. We only have
one couple that lives on
Sleepy Road, and neither of
them appears to need rest.
Sharon Rohmans back may
keep her from even watching
Don in the Reiny tournament
this year. Reuben Iverson has
done much for the sport of
shuffleboard with bringing
several people to shoot with
us. With people like Reuben,
this sport should grow in the
Sebring area. Wie thank you
Reuben and hope you keep up
the good work. If we all
would follow Reuben's exam-
ple and introduce just one
new player to this sport and
could have most of the park
players come to the club and
shoot with us, you would be


findl this a win-win f'orall.
The club wants you to be
twenty-one years old to join.
Are you readly for the summer
tournaments on every
Thursday in the district? Are
you going to clo the Monday
league in Lakeland and
Zephyrhills? Will Carl Wile
end up number one over all
this year? What will Ed
Straub do this summer with
some time on his hands? How
does John Bushee keep
going? You can find us in
back of the Sebring police sta-
tion at 333 Pomegranate Ave.

amazedl how this sport would
grow in our area. "If you like
people andt enjoy being active,
you'll harve fuin and get some
exercise." At the club you
learn proper etiquette on the
court, strategy and tourna-
nient play; where you should
be to check a disc, to see if it
is good. So much more that
just a goodr shot to this game.
Wasting a shot. There are
times in a game when a par-
ticular dlisc may be a liability
rather than an asset. You may
decide to waste a shot rather
than to place the disc to his
own advantage. Or perhaps
the liability is the hammer
that just happens to be there
after the game is won. Play_
er does not try to score his last-
hammer when it is not needed
to win the game, because the
shot can possibly fail and in
some way give the opponent
the sore he needs to win. At

Some go abroad to
seek dental treatmentS

By JAZMIN CUENCAS
Special to the News-Sun 2
Taking a vacation generally
means sitting back and enjoy-
ing the scenery. Now, that
also includes sitting back in a
dental chair. However, pro-
fessionals say that the threat
to health may outweigh the
benefits of seeking dental
procedures abroad.
,Peo le ar aigad an
vacations to patients seeking

Smuedel Loe, an ,ciat dd
for the College of Dentistry at
the University of Florida. He
also said that some patients
feel more comfortable travel
ing to their country of origin
to receive medical treatment.
"It's a trust issue," he said.
A 29-year-old doctoral stu-
dent agreed. She said she
would wait until she had the
opportunity to go back to
China, her country of origin,
for any dental procedures.
Wei Zhou, an international
student, has medical insur-
ance in the United States
through the International


is too expensive.
Eighty percent of general
procedures are covered by an
insurance plan that is avail-
able in China, Zhou said.
Because she has family and
friends in China, the expenses
are not as much as in the
United States, she said.
For those who do have to
seek treatment within the
United States it is likely, if
they were born and raised
stateside, they do not have the
money to seek treatment and
cannot travel abroad to do so
either, said Dr. Boyd E.
Robinson, associate dean for
clinical affairs at the
Y Univeisity of Florida.
People who are able to seek
procedures abroad tend to do
so because of ties they may
have with the country, he
said
-Dental bridges and bonding
ranked as the top two mos
nsought-after dental proce-
hdures for Americans, accord
ing to a report published by
Health Care Tourism
International, a nonprofit
-group that promotes safe
healthcare tourism practices.
Researchers studied the
results of 1,698 searches for


medlical procedures abroad
received through the search
engine. The largest number of'
visitors searching came from
the United States, 44.5 per-
cent.
Dental bridges andl bonding
are the most expensive dental
procedures performed,
Robinson said. A total case or
full mouth reconstruction can
cost up to $35,000. He said
the bottom line for seeking
procedures abroad is the cost.
Roc ocas idis Tcifferent

many things to take into con-
sideration,te'c as er i nge

sensitivity to medications, he


Robinson said.
Dental work can be rather
complex, Low said. When
work is done abroad "there's
no maintenance guarantee,"
he said. If a patient travels
2,000 miles for a complicated
procedure, "who's to follow
up?)'
Many of the cases he sees
are the ones that go wrong,
Low said. A gentlemen who
went to South America to

haove nt plann or urnad
later had "significant infec-
tion with puss," as well as
bone loss, Low said.
When this is the case, all of
the prior work must be
removed, and dentists must
start from scratch to repair a
patient's mouth, he said. I
wish there was patchwork in
dentistry,"' Low said, but there
is not.
Atough costs in h
United States are high, the
standard that is upheld and
the U.S. parameters of care
are worth it, Robinson said.
Traveling abroad to receive
treatment does not guarantee
a standard of care.
Essentially, these standards
are "non existent" mn other
countries, he said.
In the United States, most
state boards are similar, Low
said. "Materials that are used
must be FDA-approved," he
added. Therefore, across the
nation dentists have safety
and security measures they
have to pass in order to con-
tinuer prat-icing, unlike other
nations where no boards are
in place to monitor what
materials -or methods dentists
are using in their office.

Chocolate milk has scored a valuable
spot on and off the court. Studies suggest
the unique mix of key nutrients in choco-
late milk can help refuel and. rehydrate
your body -after exercise, making it an
ideal post-exercise choice.
"Athletes who choose chocolate milk
can help benelofit their body and their
training," says Cal Dietz, head Olympic
strength coach at the University of
Minnesota. "That's why coaches are
increasingly encouraging teen-athletes to
drink lowfat chocolate milk to help
replenish muscles after practice.
Researchers theorize the ratio of carbo-
hydrates and protein in chocolate milk
helps muscles recover. Plus, it tastes
good and provides nine essential nutri-
ents like calcium, vitamin D, and potas-
sium nutrients especially important for
teen diets."
Scientists have evaluated chocolate
milk as -a post-exercise drink and have
identified several reasons why it may be
an effective recovery aid: chocolate milk
contains a combination of carbohydrates
and protein to help replenish exhausted
muscles after exercise, and it provides

Additionally, chocolate milk has high-

15 YEARS AGO
April 1, 1993: Brian Annett tossed a two-hitter as Sebring won the first annual Johnny Freeland
BaseballToumament at Firemen's Field, 2-1, over DeSoto. Annett also got on with what would prove to
be the winning run, singling in the fifth with the game tied, 1-1. His pinch runner, Kent Hiubbell, moved
to third on a Travis Rapp bunt, and ensuing error, and came in when Mike Brod's sharply hit grounder
couldn't be handled. Annett was chosen as the tournament's MostValuable Player.

Marlins every year, but I was
nevavr rell alhatops ched
and back and sit in a near
empty stadium for three

I guess I'm spoiled in that
I grmw u a hlanhourhdrve
lived in Colorado, it wasn't
much longer of a drive to see
them when they came and
played the Rockies so, as
much as I love seeing my
team, a three-hour, one-way
drive is just a bit too much.
Besides, the Rays have
intrigued me the last couple
years, with their budding
young talent ready to explode
and wreak havoc in their
division.
Granted, even a stellar
year from the small-market
team might not make much
of a leap in the standings
among the Boston's, New
York's and Toronto's but
they will certainly be a pain
in the neck to each of those
teams when they play them,
and very well could influence
the standings and finish up
with a winning record.
Then again, that means
they'll probably be a tough
matchup for the Cubs, and in
the midst of their 100th
championship-less season,
that means a tough series
with a couple losses in the
offing.
What am L~saying?
I've lived my whole life
watching then lose, I might
as well see it in person, in a
stadium that I haven't yet
been to, to see the new resi-
dent icon of right field and
with the surplus of Cub fans
that are likely to swell the
attendance, at least for that
night, perhaps we can change
Tropicana Field to the Fuku
Dome .

The league would also like
to thank the local newspapers
for publishing league play
results.
These stories are clipped
out and sent all over the coun-
try and to Canada to family
and friends, showing that
these young and old "seniors"
still are alive and kicking,
having great fun and fellow-
ship here in Lake Placid!


tP 4


If you took a poll among
Cub fans right now, and
asked to name the covered
stadium the team will play in
after the eventual demolition
of sacred Wrigoley Field, I'd
guess about 95 percent would
suggest The Fuku Dome.
. Such was the power with
which Japanese import
Kosuke Fukudome took
over the north side of
Chicago Monday even
amid the dampened mood of
the Cubs rain-delayed, e~xtra-
inning loss to division rival
Miw aukeereaming double
to the center-field wall on the
firstapitc hhe saw,etasano her

ing, game-tying, three-run
home on teh nthheinnings -
into a frenzy, kind of like
when Godzilla makes
appearances in his homeland.
Well, maybe the opposite.
Whereas Godzilla sent
Kosuke's countrymen scurry-
ing away, Fukudome will
likely have Wrigley Field
tunsatiles spinning for people
clamoring to get in to see
him.
Not that the Cubs need an
attendance boost, with 2.8
million tickets sold for the
season even before the first
pitch of the season was
thrown .
He will also continue the
'salami' tradition (that I still
stake claim that my buddy
Pete 'Doc' Sandgren and I
started) of the right-field
bleatcher-ites bowing down in
praise of their resident icon.
See, Doc was a huge fan of
Andre Dawson, back in his
Montreal days, and when the
Cubs got him, we were out
there for an early season
game .
When Dawson ran out to
take the field, Doc and I
began doing the "Wayne's
World, we're not worthy,"
hands-extended, bow-down.
. The rest of the bleacher
bums around us soon joined
in the praise, and the tradi-
tion continued during Sammy
Sosa's tenure with the team.
I'm glad to find out that
with the interleague play
having the National League
Central playing against the
American League East this
season, that the Rays will
play host to my home team -
giving me a chance to get out
there and see them.
Yeah, I know they play the
