SEBRING Even though
foreclosures are becoming
more and more common,
there are still plenty of ques-
tions about how they work
and what rights people have.
To help answer these ques-
tions, the Highlands County
Bar Association and the
Justice Parker Lee McDonald
Law Library are sponsoring a
free seminar on foreclosures
as part of Law Week.
Attorneys Clifford Ables
and Loretta Thompson will be
conducting the seminar and
fielding general questions
from the audience from 5:15
to 6:30 p.m. today at the
Board of County
Commissioners Board Room,
600 S. Commerce Ave. in
Sebring.
The idea of discussing fore-
closures came from Judge
Peter Estrada, who asked if
the subject could be this
year's focus.
The annual seminars are
typically related to a timely
law topic, such as
landlord/tenant law (dis-
cussed during the 2004 hurri-
cane' season} and end-time
decisions and living wills
(discussed in the midst of the
Terri Schiavo controversy in
2005) '


Today's seminar is the first
activity of this year's Law
Week festivities.
The scene will shift to
Lakeshore Mall from 10 a.m.
until 3 p.m. Saturday, where
Property Appraiser Raymond
McIntyre will speak on the
tax law changes and represen-
tatives from the sheriff's
office will speak on identity
theft.
Also, informational booths
will be set up there by a vari-
ety of organizations including
teen court, code enforcement,
legal aid, Florida Rural Legal
Services, planning and zoning
and the law library.
On May 1, Florida
Supreme Court Justice Peggy
Quince will be speaking at an
invitation-only reception, and
the Law Day Program will
honor the winners in the essay
and poster contests, which are
open to students across the
county.
The posters will be dis-
played at the county building~
beginning Friday, law librari-
an Nancy Thomas said., j
The festivities are an annu-
al tradition surrounding Law
Day, which was introduced in
1958 by President Dwight
Eisenhower -as a "day of
national dedication to the
principle of government
imnder law."

City of Sebring code enforcement officer Joe Romanik talks Tuesday about a dock that isn't
up to code along Dinner Lake in Sebring. ALccording to Romanik, most docks in the city are
not in compliance with the code.

SEBRING Homeowners
in thie Sebring city limits may
find they aren't up to code in
the coming days as fliers are
taken door to door to remind
residents of an 18-month-old
ordinance.
According to Code
Enforcement Officer Joe
Romanik of the Sebring
Police Department, very few
docks are in compliance with
the law.
Now is an ideal time to get
the work done, he said.
"We have cited docks that
need repair and let them know
about this ordinance," he said.
"It's easy for homeowners to
come into compliance with
water levels where they are."
Most additions can be done
by walking out along the dock
to get the work done without
even getting wet.
The ordinance, passed in
September of 2006, requires
homeowners to keep their
docks, seawalls and boathous-
es in safe condition at all
times .
For boater safety, it
includes rules about visibility
as ivell.

Jackson.
The dock was up to code
structurally, but didn't meet
the visibility standards-
Some docks are not wired
for electricity, so Romanik
and Commander Steve Carr
both mentioned the possibili-
ty of lights operating on solar
power.
"It's less expensive than
running w~ire," Carr said.
Address numbers are also
required to be displayed at the
end of all docks.
"There is no specific size
ordinance, but we recommend
no smaller than four inches,"
Romanik said.
Though the campaign to
educate homeowners about
the ordinance kicks off later
this week, enforcement won't
start until water levels rise
and docks once again become
a hazard for boaters.
"We're just sending out a
letter to let everyone know

Carr said.

SEBRING A new study
from the non-profit, non-par-
tisan Florida TaxWatch found
that Boys and Girls Club
members had lower high
school dropout rates, higher
Florida Comprehensive

reading and math, lower
absenteeism rates, and lower
rates of criminal offenses.
"This TaxWatch study
proves the Boys and Girls

Executive Director Wally
Randall said. "The study
shows what we've been say-

Basically, taxpayers are get-
ting their money's worth.'
The lower dropout rates in
particular have quantifiable
economic impacts, the study
said. If the dropout rate of
Boys and Girls Club mem-
bers was as low as the
statewide rate, there would be

Meet and greet


candidates tonight

The five finalists for Highlands County administra-
tor appear to be equally qualified to replace outgoing
Carl Cool.
The leader of a company, a community, a family
(Highlands County is all three) is more than a resume
and favorable comments from hand-picked refer-
ences.
Diplomas and accolades don't indicate how an
executive will treat employees, interact with the pub-
lic or execute policy.
A key element of selecting employees, whether
they push a broom or oversee several hundred per-
sonnel, is the gut feeling after a face-to-face inter-
view
Do they have shifty eyes? Are they secure in their
ansewaer Do the ilnteyo es babe obdf rDt theomly k

nity? Are they clear on job description? What ques-
tions do they ask of the interviewer?
Our five competent commissioners will individual-
ly interview the candidates Thursday and Friday and
as a board in a public meeting Saturday.
To help them with their interviews and decision, the
public is invited to a 6 p.ro. reception tonight at
Sebring Civic Center.
The meet-and-greet allows commissioners and citi-
zens to get to know the candidates in a relaxed atmos-
phere.
Gut feelings will confirm resume bullets, or paint a
different picture.
Whether you closely follow county commission
meetings or could care less, we encourage you to
attend this event.
Get to know the candidates, ask them questions and
listen. Then, pass on your comments arid concerns to
a commissioner.
Ho efully, he or she will use your insight during
the private and public interviews.
Maybe, what you say will help the board select the
next administrator.
Those prospective administrators will also be
watching you.
They'll develop their own first impressions as will
their spouses, who have the final say in whether they
accept whatever is offered-
Your honest assessment of all Highlands has to
offer and its short-comings will encourage the good-
fit candidate to accept the job and the less-impressed
to move on
A candidate who detects a lack of community sup-
pw'" frmm low attnd nc tn hth just ght notdfe
h~'t care enough.
Or, they'll only receive input from the same people
already too active in local politics.
As much as we're looking for these finalists to
impress us, we must do the same.
Hopefully, their gut feelings and our gut feelings
will complement the other.
The next couple of years are riding on it,

W il l our kids miss

When children all over the

chH rno ied lt ata th tapea

bent on making sure that

haGoen der their enthusiasm
for, a constitutional amend-
ment to abolish property
taxes for schools. Then-con-
sider their slashing hundreds
of millions of dollars from
the sch~ooi budget. Their
actionS and words speak
loudly of their intentions.
Their actions imply a will-
fuil and delibjerate effort to
bankrupt Florida's public
education system. Their
words speak of economic
necessity during hard times.
We can't raise taxes, they
say, so we must cist spend-

inb economics are th~e root
c~ausie of their actions s-ei
ing the economic ecjuivalerit
of eating the seed corn.
We must wait for better
times, they say, before we
can spend more on educh-
tion. Meanwhile, we must
cut the budget and try to get
by.
Children don't have 1116
luxury of waiting. Their time
is short and their window of
opportunity brief. Each
child's ticket for the future
trairi expires quickly.
When has a community
ever been so set on giving its
children less than its elders
received as children?
Floridians seem deternfirked
Sto do just that.
Florida's voters solidly
backr their leaders on reduc-
ing property taxes. Just
recently, they .overwhelming--
ly endorsed property tax
reductions for local govrern-
ments. There is little doubt
they will do the same for
school Property taxes.
A lot of Floridians don't
live in a community. they
live in a, condo or a subdivi-
sion or a trailer. FloridB is
just a place where they
ended up and they have no

atahent t oon cernel

Plorida is where they start
and its future is their~imlme-
diate concern. If-they are to
avoid just ending up some-
where, they must catch the
future train before it leaves..
Florida is a Republican
state with a Repubhican gov-
ernor and legislature. They
are true believers in reducing
taxes and cutting government
down to size. Whether tho)Se
tactics will work in the pres-
ent crisis is an open ques:
tion .
SRepublicans are facing a .
real challenge to their anti-
tax, anti-government philos-
ophy. With the economy
tanking, they need these tax
cuts to succeed spectacularlyi.
If the cuts don't work, they
may lose several gherations' '.:i
ofvters like they did in
Florida's children can't
vote and, all too often, their
parents' don't vote. Whether
FloridB's voters will follow
their 16aders over this tax cut
cliff next November remains
to be seen.
Meanwhile, the .future
taita is leaving the station
and when it leaves it never
returns. None who miss it
ever see it again. And none
who miss it ever catch up
with those who~ don't.
If our children get left at
the station, the rest of us will


be there with them, Their
future and ours are insepar8;'
ble. If they miss the future
train, so will we all.

Even now, I sit here and write with
my legs covered in dirt and mud. My
fingernails have turned black with the
art of gardening. I have never really

Perhaps, at my core, I am still a young

Needless to say, I am filthy at the

APPLE A DAY
II'HEALTH FOOD STORE

....,IVAKINlG HIGHLANDS COUNTY' HEALTHIER SINCE 1998.

How much do you know about the dangerous toxins that surround you every day? Did
you know that there are harsh chemicals lurking in your home, in the air you breathe, the
water you drink and even the food you eat? What if I told you there is a way to reduce
your exposure to these toxins, have more energy, a clearer mind, and live a healthier
lifestyle. There is!!
Natural Healthcare Expert Brenda Watson discusses how this can be done in her new
book, the Detox Strategy: Vibrant Health in 5 Easy Ways. Watson provided a practical
and easy-to-implement plan for reducing the amount of harmful material with which we
come into contact daily.
Reduce This refers to reducing your exposure to toxins by making small, simple
changes. For example, you can replace chemical-laden cleaners and personal products
with safer, natural alternatives.
Eliminate This is the process of removing toxins that have accumulated in the body as
the result of decades of exposure. This can be achieved by internal cleansing (which
she suggests beginning with a basic total-body cleansing) and a high fiber diet (at least
30 grams of fiber/day
Nourishing The third step, and perhaps most important, is nourishing the body. She
recommends choosing fresh, organically grown foods, which not only are higher in nutri-
ents, but are free of chemicals, pesticides, unnecessary hormones, and antibiotics.
Energize This refers to energizing your body through exercise and physical activity.
For ease and convenience, she recommends brisk walking or use of a rebounder to
increase blood flow which helps the body filter and eliminate toxins.
Wellness The final phase involves putting all of the pieces together to achieve a bene-
ficial detox lifestyle. A healthy body leads you to feeling better, sleeping more soundly,
having fewer aches and pains, and improved mental clarity.
Today is the day you can begin making strides towards a healthier and more enjoyable
life. Stop in at Apple A Day and get Brenda Watson's book, or see all of the other
healthy items they have in stock. This includes vitamins, herbs, natural cleansers,
health and beauty products, and a large selection of food products including refrigerat-
ed and frozen items. With a knowledgeable and friendly staff, Apple A Day is the place
for all of your healthy lifestyle needs.

"As publisher of the News-Sun, my job is to oversee the newspaper in all areas:
newsroom, advertising, circulation, the Internet, general office and anything else that -
needs to be done. Newspapers are such an exciting and fast-growing industry.
Throughout my career I have come to understand that being a journalist is about
people, and that newspapers help to define a community." .
Clarissa's dream was a career in news. She'd worked in public relations for several non-profit organizations
during college. Her first "real" job was at the Times Tribune and Tri Co. Shopping Guide in Corbin, Ke~ntucky,
where she worked as an account executive selling advertising. Another door opened for her whie she was
employed for Save the Children Federation as she started her own monthly newspaper, Neighbor to
Neighbor. Prior to moving to Florida, Clarissa was publisher of The Register-News in Mt. Vernon, Illinois, a
daily 6-day-a-week newspaper as well as The Times Leader, a weekly newspaper in M~as lni.
On the weekends, you'll see Clarissa with her husband, JR and two children, Bethan ~~h-grader at
HGMS, and Cameron, a 1st grader at Sun N Lake Elementary, at a basketball qgo cer game or the park.
On any given Sunday, you can find her in church as she and her family ar h~icling for a church home
where they feel God has lead them to be.
"Our family has made Highlands County our aren~ jnl :.6 0 excited to have become a part of this great
community. I love the mixture of' small town andc Ihe- io -c.- iniences that we enjoy here in Highlands
County. I feel it's the best of both worlds."
Clarissa's hobbies are spending time with family and friends, traveling, shopping and writing.

Sebring, FL 33870 '


It's been said that if you want to get something done.. .

.. give it to a busy person

That would describe Jeanny Campbell

A REALTOR, A COACH FOR REAL ESTATE INVESTOR, AND A LIFE SUCCESS CONSULTANT
THE REALTOR JEANNY HAS- 32 YEARS OF REAL ESTATE EXPERIENCE
JEANNY GOT STARTED SELLING REAL ESTATE WHEN INTEREST RATES GOT TO BE AS HIGH AS 19%,, SHE EXPERIENCED STOCK MARKET CRASHES, THE
SAVINGs & LOAN CRISIS, AND THE REAL ESTATE BOOM THAT BARELY LASTED 2 YEARS, AND NOW BACK TO A BUYER'S MARKET.
"Over the years I've seen7 many r-eal estate agents come and go, some came real strong and when there was a hick-up in the market, they
would leave. I create my own market, I don't listen to what the media has to say, don't read bad news or participate in anyone 's negative
conversations about the economy or market conditions."
"There will always be people ready to buy and sell, regardless of what's happening in the economy, with interest rates o5- what time of the
year it is. I look for the ones wvho are ready today and go to work." .c
JEANNY BELIEVES THAT HER INCOME IS IN DIRECT PROPORTION OF THE AMOUNT OF SERVICE SHE GIVES. YOU WON'T FIND HER PROMISING A LOT OF .
"FLUFF." SHE IS STRAIGHT TO THE POINT, OFTEN SHE'LL ASK A HOMEOWNER "do you want me to tell you, what you want to hear or what you --
need to hear? DO YOUi WA/NT YOUR HOUSE ADVERTISED OR DO YOU W4NT IT SOLD? JEANNY IS REALLY CLEAR WITH THE SELLERS OBJECTIVE AND
THAT IS To GET THE HOUSE SOLD! >~B
FOLLOWING THE CROWD IS NOT SOMETHING JEANNY GETS ACCUSED OF. SHE HAS HER OWN leanny Campbell
STYLE, AND IT'S NOT LIKE ANYONE ELSE. EARLY IN HER REAL ESTATE CAREER, HER MENTOR
SAID: "watch what everyone else is doing and don't do that." SHE OFTEN ADVISES
HOMEOWNERs "talk to everyone else, then call me."
JEANNY'S MISSION AS A REALTOR IS: "Tell the customer thze truth at all cost. Treat SOLD
cooperating Realtors as my customers and accomplish my noals to the benzefi'ts of
? others in mind."



THE COACH: ABouT 7 YEARS AGO SHE BEGAN INVESTING IN THE FORECLOSURE REAL ESTATE MARKET AND MADE HER NICHE "SHORT SALES" (THAT'S
WHEN THE LENDER IS WILLING TO TAKE LESS THAN OWED) WHERE MOST PEOPLE HAD NEVER HEARD OF IT. SHE BECAME SUCCESSFUL AT IT, AND WAS
OFFERED AN OPPORTUNITY TO COACH OTHER INVESTORS FROM ALL OVER TH-E UNITED STATES. SHE IS THE ONLY FEMALE COACH OUT OF 5 COACHES. AS AN
EXPERT IN SHORT SALEs, JEANNIY HAS BEEN FEATURED IN' THE REALTOR MAGAZINE AND THE RE/MAX TIMES WHICH IS DISTRIBUTED THROUGH THE NATION.

THE LIFE SUCCESS CONSULTANT SHE IS A BUSINESS PARTNER OF Bos PROCTOR OF THE SECRET MOVIE (THE LAW OF ATTRACTIONN. SHE IS
PASSIONATE ABOUT SHARING WITH OTHERS WHAT THE MIND TRULY CAN ACCOMPLISH. SHE HELPS YOU LEARN HOW TO RELY ON AND BELIEVE IN YOUR
UNLIMITED POTENTIAL AND POWER. "We already know that you 've exp~erienced flashes of intuitive knowledge andl big thinking that has yoiu
2 ." .wondering just how far you could go if only .. ."
Jeanny will help you stir up that innate knowing and s.elf-trust alre~adyr instilled deep in your soul. Helps you forgbeforward when the "old you "
would rather give up anzd turn back.
AS A LIFE SUCCESS CONSULTANT, SHE CAN OFFER A NUMBER OF PROGRAMS IN HALF OR FULL DAY AND CUSTOMIZED FORMATS FOR LARGE OR SMALL
GROUPS, IN-HOUSE CORPORATE TRAINING, EXECUTIVE AND PERSONAL RETREATS, ENORMOUS CONFERENCE HALLS, STADIUM KEYNOTES AND MORE.
THE VARIETY OF SEMINARS SHE PRESENTS ARE: The Goal Achiever, Winner's Image, You We're Born Rich, Mission in Commission and the


Success Puzzle.
"These pr-ogr-ams we ofer, ar-e help~ing anld alffcting hundreds of thousands of lives on this planet. Right now~, you're stanrdinlg on the brink of
your possibility. It's time to seek out youtr destiny. It's time to see and achieve one goal after anzothzer with a clear:-headled anld confidenzt stride ...
no matter howv big your might think that goal to be." SAYS CAMPBELL
JEANNY'S HOBBIES ARE FISH-ING, WATER SKIING, ENJOYING A BEAUTIFUL SUNRISE AND SUNSET, READING. SHE HAS A LARGE LIBRARY OF; BOOKS, TAPES
AND CD's. HER FAVORITE BOORS ARE: THE BlBLE, THINK AND GROW RICH, YOU WERE BORN RICH, THE POWER OF YOUR SUBcoNscious MIND, THE

Special to the News-Sun
Dr. Curtis Fedorchuk, a chiropractor
from Dahlonaga-, Ga., armed with tech-
nology that has been used by NASA, has
made remarkable inroads' in the battle
against asthma. Fedorchuk's research
was recently published in "The Journal
of Vertebral Subluxation Research" and
detailed the transformation of his star
patient, a 7-year old girl who had suf-
fered from severe asthma and chronic
cough for almost her entire life.
Before encountering Dr. Fedorchuk,
this little girl was using multiple oral
medications and inhalers that totaled 24
inhalations per day, yet her symptoms
persisted. Her parents were not only
shouldering the financial burden of their
daughter's care, but the hours of lost
sleep caused by asthma attacks impacted
the entire family. Concerned about the
volume of medications that their daugh-


Steer was consuming, the parents sought
help from Dr. Fedorchuk.
Following an examination using the
Insight Discovery Subluxation Station
(the diagnostic tool that has not only
benefited the space program, but has
been used by chiropractors treating
Super Bowl champions and Olympic
gold medalists), the young girl began
receiving chiropractic adjustments.
SBy~ nightfall after her first adjustment,
the little girl's coughing ceased. Over the
next three weeks (while visiting Dr.
Fedorchuk for adjustments 2-3 times per
week), the little girl's mom reported no
attacks, an increase in activity levels, and
a decrease in the need to use an inhaler.
After four weeks, she was no longer
using the inhalers. Her teachers noticed
the change in the child's demeanor, while
swimming and running became part of
her everyday life. Subsequent tests


showed an increase in lung capacity and
the little girl's visits to the chiropractor
became less frequent. Within 10 months
of from the onset of care, Dr.
Fedorchuk's young patient was no longer
using any medications, only carrying
Albuterol in the event of an emergency.
"Childhood asthma is prevalent in the
United States with nine million people
under the age of 18 suffering from this
debilitating lung ailment, four times as
many as 20 years ago," said Dr. John
Pepper, a Sebring-based chiropractor
who has invested in the Insight technolo-
gy. "For some, this leads to a lifetime of
suffering or, for those less fortunate',
death. There are approximately 5,000
deaths annually in the U.S. that are
linked to asthma. After reading about Dr.
Fedorchuk's researith, I wanted to do
more for those in my community who
fight respiratory ailments."

SEBRING RECREATION CLUB
Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING We have so
much to be thankful for in this
country and even more in
Highlands County. We have
people that care about people,
like the sponsors of the recre
ation club, the officers and all
those that help with all the
tasks.
We are pleased to have peo
ple willing to help with our
directory, such as Triangle
Hardware and Full House
Furniture and more.
We have a paper like the
News-Sun printing the club
events and also the news from
the club. If it were not for the
paper, many of you would not
hear about our efforts to grow
in Sebring.
We need more line dancers,
card players, shufflers and
members like Pat Dell and
also Thomas Bruba. They
both have introduced new
people to this game and are
ever ready to talk to you about
it. We have more members
that do this, but these I am
sure have.
People think that you have
to be old in order to play shuf-
fleboard. The misunderstand-
ing is that you can play even
if you are old. Irvin Ishman at
94 years plays a good game.
He says that it is a little hard-
er to shoot a good game today
than a few years ago. Tom
Fowler from Avon Park at 97
years is a man that is not beat-
en often.
We need young players on
the courts and now with our
northern friends gone is a
good time to learn. The num-
bers on the courts will be
much less than in the winter
months.
We play in the evening in
Sebring during the summer,
so if you are employed and
would like to try this game
you will be able. You do not
have to know anything about
it and we will help you learn.
Winnie Wells, a true lady
and a good friend is now in
her glory because of the tem-
perature. This means no
sweater for Winnie for a cou-
ple of months. You must meet
this one-of-a-kind lady to see
how nice people can be. You
will find her playing bridge or
on the shuffleboard courts.
George and Nancy
Brockelbank will be with us
for most of the summer.
George will be able to have
two gardens this year I bet.
They have purchased another
home so they can spend some
time with their:family in the
north.
The kitchen shot is difficult'
and a favorite for many new
shuffleboard players. Expert
players may not make it more
than once out of three or four
attempts .
You do not need to master
this shot somewhat because it
is seldom possible to pull a
bad game out without it. You
must always remember that
you need score to win so that
a kitchen game is not a must.
The summer season is now
upon us with April 10 being
the opener in Winter Haven
followed by April 17 in

The Tropical Harbor Estates Mustangs (men's group} wanted to do something for the com-
munity. One of the Tropical Harbor residents is rehabilitating at Lake Placid Health Care
Center..When her husband went to visit her, he could see that the courtyard could use some
sprucing up. On April 15, Charlie Price, Jim Wood, Jim T~enBroeke, Jim Becker, Jim Hogan,
Clyce Fraincis and Phil Margetts spent the morning raking, pulling weeks and cleaning the
furniture. This was a very gratifying and rewarding experience for the men to see the smiles
and get the 'thank yous' they received.

this play at the plate. Hunter was called out, but it was the the Wildcats who prevailed, 10-6, in

Bradenton The Hardee Wildcat bats skewered
the Avon Park Red Devils 10-6 on Thursday night
in the District 10-4A tournament at Bra~den River
High School.
"Our bats have just gotten better as the season
has moved along," said Wildcat coach Steve
Rewis. "We swung well, and we are definitely bet-
ter this last half of the season that we were on the
first half."
Avon Park picked up the first two runs of the
game in the bottom of the second, but Hardee bat-
tled back in the top of the third picking up four
runs with just three hits and kept going in the top
of the fourth, picking up two more runs.
The Cats would finish trhe night
Hardeewith 10 runs off of 10 hits.
Avon Park would come within
01 one run in' the bottom of the fifth
when they scored two off ofa
Avon Park Chevis Hicks stand-up double into
center, but the Devils were unable

6 to catch up the rest of the night.
The top of the sixth would be the
trouble spot for Avon Park as the
Cats picked up four runs and four hits ,including a
two-run double by Hardee pitcher Dan Timmons to
give them a 10-5 lead, and put it out of reach. ..
"Basically, they outplayed us,"' said Avon Park
head coach Mort Jackson. "They outplayed us on
defense, they out pitched us, and they out hit us.
When that happens, you can do nothing but lose."
"We lost some of the important battles," said
relief Pitcher Cory Topa after the game. "We just

.did not hit the ball when we needed to, and when
vie did hit it, they made some good plays."
"I plan on working hard this summer, and am
looking forward to coming back next year," added
Topa.
Hardee goes on to face the Sebring Blue Streaks
on Thursday at 4 p.m. in Braidenton, while the loss
finishes the Avon Park season. .


"Anytime you play Avon Park or Sebring, you
have to play well," added Rewis. "The key is going
to be eliminating the big innings. We lost the both
times in the regular season because of big innings."
The matchup will resume the Rewis family brag-
ging rights with father Hoppy again facing his'son
Steve for the opportunity to reach the District final
and assure a spot in the state Regional Playoffs.

BRADENTON The only
drama, really, Monday night,
was whether or not Blue
Streak starting pitcher Steven
Fortner accomplished a no-
hitter in Sebring's 12-0 win
over Sarasota Booker in the
first round of the District 10-
4A tournament.
"If you asked Sarasota, it
was probably a
Sebring one-hitter,"
12 head coach
Hoppy Rewis
said, afterward.
Booker
"If you ask
0Sebring, it was
likely. an error
and a no-hit-
ter."
Those are the kind of
debates one can have after a
five-inning, mercy-rule win,
as the overmatched Tornadoes
were, well, no match for the
'boys in blue.
Fortner did walk a batter
and plunked another,
He also had some solid
defense behind him, including
one stellar defensive play in
front of him.
With one out in the first, a


bunt attempt was popped up
in front of the plate.
Not so much a pop up, but
more like a ping-pong lob,
that could have meant early
trouble.
But catcher Mike Jones
sprung from behind the plate
and in a full-out dive, snared
the cowhide before it hit the


dirt.
The Streaks, themselves,
went hitless in the first, but
still came away with a run.
Corey Watt reached on a
dropped third strike to start it
off and stole second base.
Two outs later, an attempt-

this, you don't want to let it
go too long and start to get

The win advances the
Streaks to the District
Semifinals Thursday at 4
p.m., where they will face a
Hardee squad that upset third
seed Avon Park Tuesday
night.
"With Hardee, it won't

"We're 3-2 against them

be a good game with them,
like they usually are."


came in on Priscilla Adams'
line single to left.
But the strong season for
the Streaks would end on a
pop out, and signal the end of
head coach Lee Tolar's 14-
year run with the program.
''This was my last year," he
said afterward. "And it was a
nice way to go out. We
showed we could play with,
them but for a few mistakes.
They were young mistakes,
cetthis was aa otd eexper -

That would seem to be the
case with .no starting Streak
bemng older than a junior, and
with them knowing what they
have and the confidence in
playing .the game they just
played.
"It ended too soon," Lower
said of the season. "They
were just like any other team.
If we can come back next year

And so the season ends too
soon, but with a great run to
look back on, and a lot of
hope for what lay ahead.
The loss of Tolar will be
felt, assuredly, and it marks
the ending of another softball
tenure, with Avon Park's
Mike Cobb hanging it up this
season as well.
Look for a fuller look at the
ending of these two great
