AVON PARK -. Despite a recently
passed ordinance to the contrary, Lake
Deuton won't re-open this weekend.
During a meeting of the L~ake Denton
advisory committee on Tuesday, Frank
Karuppa, environmental director for the
Health Department, infor-med the commit-
tee. that the $25 diver charge turns the Lake
Denton boat ramp into a beach.
'Apparently, when you charge a fee to
enter the water that triggers a mechanism
within the health department that this is a
public bathing area," said County
Commissioner Don Bates, whio serves as
the Lake Denton committee's rion-voting
chairman .
SThrough an ordinance passed about two
weeks,ago, he said the county planned to
charge each diver $25 yier day during week-
ends.
Boaters would be able to enter for free
and swimmers weren't addressed in the

SEBRING Until the attack
on the World Trade Center in
September of 2001, Marcus
Mathes had been a care-free,
happy-go-lucrky young man, pop-
ular and full of laughter, but
without any real direction.
Afterward, however, he
became focused, even driven, to
make a difference.
His mother, Sue Sawyer,
remembers vividly the conversa-
tion she had with him at the time.
He told her he wanted to join
the Army.
She reminded him there was a
war on.
He said he knew.
She asked him why he would
want to go to war.
"Because," he said, "if I go,
someone else can come home."
Now Mathes is coming home,
but in a flag-draped coffin.
He was killed in a mortar
attack Monday morning as he .
stood next to his truck, which
was parked at an Army camp
motor pool north of Baghdad.
His two fellow crew members
were killed with him. They all
died instantly. He had just turned
25.
Mathes' family and friends,
while shaken and grieving, are
determined to celebrate his life.
Tuesday, they spoke of his
ready smile, his spontaneity, his
sense of humor and talent for liv-
ing life to the fullest. They also
talked about his sensitivity and
spirituality; his courage and car-
ing.
For example, his mother said,
when he was offered a chance to
train another soldier to drive his

AVON PARK -- All five members of the
city council quickly voted to hire Sarah Adelt
as perinanent city manager Monday night.
Councilman AlJoe Hinson did express
some reservations about not advertising the
position, as did private citizen Ed Dickerson,
but it was clear from the, beginning that Adelt,
who has been holding the job down on an


interim basis since C.B.
Shirey left to head the Avon Adt
Park airport, holds the coun-
cil's confidence and would be offered the
opportunity.
The city's charter allows for the hiring of a
city manager without an advertised search
and the approval of three council members.

SEBRING --"There is every possibility thdt
Africanized bees are here in Highlands
County.-
So says Dr. John Alleyne, director of exten-
sion services of Highlands County, who organ-
ized three training programs Tuesday on
Africanized honey bees (AHBs),'or "killer
bees," in an effort to train emergency service
personnel, outdoor workers and the general
public about the aggressive and possibly dan-
gerous species.
There is already evidence that AHBs have
moved into the area. An Okeechobee County
man died two weeks ago from an extreme aller-


gic reaction to several AHB
stings, and Alleyne himself was
attacked at a -watermelon farm
- in Lake Placid by what he
believes are Africanized bees .
""This is why we're training peo- ,
ple, because the bees are here.
Alleyne said.
The biggest difference between
AHBs and the common European
honey bees (EHBs) is the level of
defensiveness and aggressiveness,
said William Kern, associate profes-
sor of entomology and nematology at
the University of Florida's Fort j
Lauderdale Research and Education Center.


Neither Africanized nor
European bees sting without
provocation, and their stings
do the same amount of
damage. But there is one
major discrepancy:
Africanized bees attack in much
greater numbers. While EHBs
~might send out five to 10 bees to
drive you away, Africanized
bees send out thousands. One AHB
sting releases an alarm pheromone
that attracts every other member of the
colony, which could result in thousands of bees
Looking to sting you in the exact same place.
"If you disturb art AHB colony, you can


expect 6 to 10 times more stings than an EHB
colony," Kern said.
AHB colonies cari be found under board-
walks, stored field equipment, stacked flower
pots and in stacks of roadside debris. Bee
colonies are also being found located under-
neath stairs, handicapped ramps, and portable
'school buildings.
Afnicanized bees are the same species as
European bees, and you can't tell the difference
:between the two types by looking at them. ~In
fact, the only way to tell the difference is to
havpe them tested in a laboratory under a micro-
scope.

From left, Bob Jamison, Eric Zwayer, Bob Germaine and Clerk of
Courts LE. 'Luke' Brooker discuss the credit card payment system
that came on line in January and has processed over 800 transac-
dions and more than $100,000.


The fees are collected by
Florida Association of Court
Clerks, which administers the
credit card collection system
and assumes almost all the fis-
cal liability of the system.
"We're one of the few coun-
ties that still take personal
checkss" Director of Court
Services Bob Germaine said,
explaining that's fine for
locals but not so for many of
the ticketed motorists passing
through Highlands County.
Director of Administration
Eric Zwayer said more than
$20,000 in traffic fines come
through the courthouse each
week and credit card payments
are averaging $2,000 daily.
"It's greatly reduced the
cash on hand," he said,
explaining advertising has
been word of mouth.
Jamison will meet soon with
the Board of County
Commissioners to determine
where it wants to begin imple-
menting credit cards.
Top on the list, he suggest-
ed, would be the landfill, utili-
ties and building department.
The move to credit cards is
part of an ongoing strategic

AVON PARK In a 4-1
vote, AlJoe Hinson dissent-
ing, the city council has
agreed to go forward and join
the county-wide dispatch
service.
The hope is the changeover
can be complete by Oct. 1, the
start of the new fiscal year.
Sarah Adelt, city manager'
urged the council to act.
"It's good for the city," she
said. "It will bring the county
together,. provide back-up we
can't afford, it helps the offi-
cers and helps the budget. The
status quo just isn't going to
cut it."
Robert Jordan of the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office explained that the
Smart Cop software system is
already in place at central dis-

pay hoa coyigh licwinlsdsto
use the software in police
vehicle computers a one-
time cost of $150,000 with an
$8,000 annual maintenance


fee after the first year.
This is in contrast to the
current annual cost of
$3360,000.
The one drawback, Adelt
said, was that the nine dis-
patchers currently working
for the city's dispatch system
would be let go.
There might be replace-
ment jobs, she added, depend-
ing on whether or not the
council decides to keep the
police station open all the
time. She added that the sher-
.iff's office is looking to hire
four or five new dispatchers,
and the sheriff had indicated
idi duals f mli r with
Avon Park would be needed.
In response to a question
from Hinson, Jordan made it
clear that each city's police
will be responding to calls
sw hintat ant u sles eut
cally requested.
Emergency utility calls will
continue to be handled by the
city.


SeBnG -E Itnwas Te sf
rollo~uBR bt for the ptat tr e
months the Highlands County
Courthouse has been accepting
charge cards.
Clerk of Courts L.E. "Luke"
Brooker implemented the sys-
tem Jan. 24, allowing patrons
to pay with credit or debit
cards .
"The public will benefit
from this in convenience and
cost savings," Brooker said
Tes ay.
"This is a credit card gener-
ation. They don't write checks
anymore ."
From traffic tickets to tax
deed salts, the clerk is accept-
ing plastic in all of its offices.
SAccepting credit and debit
cards over the county was a
natural evolution of theadeci-
sion two years ago to accept
credit cards via the Internet.
The benefits to the cus-
tomers is they need not bring
cash, which can be significant
amount depending on the
transaction.
In addition, it speeds up the
process allowing the patrons
to get in and out faster.
Foi clerk employees, there's
added security in not having to
maintain as much cash on
hand and there's less cash to
count, from receiving it from
the customer to end-of-day
deposits, meaning there's less
financial risk. .
Highlands taxpayers didn't
pay for the system's installa-
tion, which is covered by the
use fe
userki any convenience, you
pay for it," explained Bob
Jamison, senior director of
business services.
For cash transactions,
there's no fee. But, for those
who opt to pay by credit card
(Visa,' Mastercard, American
Express anddeDiscover( a e
and Mastercard), there's a 3.2
percent or $2.50 surcharge,
whichever is greater. July 1,
$;2.50 will be the flat fee.

Give attention to
Loyalty Day, May 1
Editor: .
The first day of May is Loyalty Day
and is such a day filled with activities -
designed to involve everyone in a great
display of loyalty to our flag and our
country.
The veterans of Foreign Wars has
fought a long and hard battle to have
this day approved by Congress and it
not only belongs to the VFW but to each
and every American citizen.
All staunch Americans must awake
and live up to their obligation as respon-
sible citizens if we are to remain "free"
for only the "loyal" and "responsible"
fully deserve to be free.
We learn lessons of loyalty from the
selfless dedication an~d unwavering alle-
giance of our men and women in uni-
form. We should be grateful for their
courage and willingness to make the
sacrifices for our country. We should
proudly unite behind them and give
them our utmost support. .
Most of all let us teach our young
people about our history and values so
that they may be able to ensure our lib-
erty and lead our country in the future,
May they uphold the visions of our
Forefathers and instill in them why free-
dom "our" freedom is worth pro-
tectmng.
Being an American is a great privi-
lege and your patriotism should be a liv-
ing faith to our country's founding
fathers ideal and dreams of a great
America. Be "proud" to be an American.
Fly your flag, "Old Glory," with pride.
Do not desecrate it. Love it and respect
it. It is "our" symbol of freedom and we
enjoy this freedom ... don't you?
MSo letdus protect it as kmn nswe can.
and women who are still fighting today
to keep our freedom.
God bless America an~du k er sa e.

Truth on both sideS
Editor:
This is in response to your rebuttal
letter to the editor by Mr. Duncan. Mr..
Duncan was right when he said the
building that is being used for the club-
house holds 72 people of nearly 200
members and spouses that live in The
Knolls'. Also, the by-laws and assess-
ments have to be approved by a two-
third vote of the lot owners.
The fact is there has never been a
vote on the $1,000 assessment to buy
the clubhouse. Mr. Duncan is right,
there will be more surprise assessments


This past week, I
sp n time wit p a deao

'sw lhivesuinth nsdsetn
though my flight com-


heart was leaping inside

::dmt e~rh e Uuotfinlan Murphy's
creeks were only Law
moments away. I was. Lindsey Murphy
already imagining their
vibrant hues of green,
We took a day to go hiking through the
forests of the town that she lives in. The
day was a slightly overcast one, with
droplets of rain falling in through the
breaks in the trees. This made the color of
the trees and wildflowers come alive in
vivid brightness. When we reached the
valley, there was a roar of running water
off into the distance. There was a river
that was running through our path.
As we approached the river, it reminded
us of the complexity of life. With speech
filled with prose and metaphors, we began
reciting how similar this river was to oui
own lives. (I certainly cannot take credit
for the following commentary, for it is a
work of both of our hearts. However, we
both wanted to share it with others.)
When floating in a river, it is important
that a person keep their feet up, for it
allows them not to sink. When you let the
Master Navigator take control, it allows
for you not to worry about the course, but
rather enjoy the beauty of the world that
surrounds you. Often the path is filled
with obstacles, but do not be alarmed. For
it is creating waters that are churned and
waters that will further the path of the
river of life.
Some of these obstacles are naturally
there, like the boulders in the course.
However, some of these obstacles come
from outside sources, like a- falling tree. In
either case, it is important not to hold onto
these obstacles with a firm grasgi, for it
will create more difficulty for the floater.
When you grab upon the rock, or the prob-
lem in the path, you often get sucked into.
the rapid waters. But if you float through
it, you will get splashed and a little "
bruised, but it will allow for you to move
forward .
The true difficulty lies in the stagnant
waters. When there is no obstacle for a
considerable distance, the river becomes
stagnant and not moving forward. It cre-
ates the perfect grounds for buzzing mos-

rp or a somal ptch of ok o te river
to flow through, it creates for waters that
keep on moving.
As we were hiking away from this
area, I had a vivid image etched ~into my
mind. My feet were up and my.eyes were
looking towards the heavens. I uias not
going to try to stop in the river of my life.
Yes, there might be rocks scattered
around, but the current was consistent.
I stopped for: a moment and just soaked
the image in. For how often in my own
life do I try to put my feet down or wish
there were no barriers? I am just reminded
of the river of life that -we are all floating
upon. May. we keep our feet up and our
eyes directed toward the heavens.

Audits teach us how


to do things better

It is easy to understand why those of us who live in
Highlands County love it as much as we do.
Beyond the physical beauty of the rolling terrain
and many lakes, there are the highly individual cities,
each with much to commend it.
The small-town atmosphere, where neighbors know
one another and local leaders are easily accessible,
adds greatly to our quality of life.
But it can also blind us to the obvious.
Which is why we commend the array of audits that
have recently been made of organizations as various
as the county's ~library and E-911 systems, the city of
Avon Park, and Sebring's chamber of commerce.
We strongly urge more of the same for other gov-
ernments and groups not that we expect, or want,
to find wrongdoing.
Rather, we ~feel audits are useful in helping local
leaders keep a handle on day-to-day business, pin-
pointing areas of weakness while showing what
works well.
It can bje difficult, in a small community where
everyone knows each other and business is often
agreed to on a hand shake, to keep communications
and interactions formal. While solving short-term
problems with a phone call can save time and energy,
it can also result in long-term complications, like the
left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing.
And it is also true that working in a position for an
extended period of time, or with the same group of
individuals, can dull a person's perceptions, leading
to errors or breeding a sense of entitlement or crony-
ism. This isn't wicked, it's just human nature, but it
has to be guarded against even so.
Audits are the annual physical examinations of eco-
nomics, the best way to stay healthy. Intrusive, yes,
sometimes embarrassing, but ultimately the best way
to peace of mind. '
There are enough challenges facing us to give the
wisest and strongest among us pause. We are eritering
-- a time where every nickel will count, where everyone '
will have to work harder and more efficiently, doing
with less.
Despite that, our best years are still before us. This
is especially the case because we are learning through
these audits how to do things better,

Christians whose lives have been
changed by Christ." But what we
found were Christians whose lives
had been changed by Christ. These
teen panelists were able to share
that evening that Christ was their
reason to not engage in underage
drinking and other destructive
behavior. But they did not get a
chance to share how serving the
Lord as a mentor to younger kids
and investing time in other people's
lives is the answer.
How refreshing to learn there.are
about 1,000 known teens in our
county who are helping stop under-
age drinking and other destructive
behaviors. How? They made a
choice. They share their faith. They
serve as positive role models for
other youth. They invest time in our
youth,
So back to my original question:
What are we adults doing to see
that our children do not become
alcoholics?
Perhaps we could learn some-
thing from these teen panelists.

to come in the future, which may
include an addition to the building, a
larger electric panel and stand by gener-
ator for~the building.
He is right, democracy is based on the
majority rules. Many members who
have lived here for four to 20 years are
against buying the building to be used
.as clubhouse because of the way the
directors have conducted elections and
other important votes in the past. No,
this is not a democracy; no secret ballot
voting has been held in the past.
Members that are recognized-to speak
are booed with insults and etc. Once you
say your piece, if the board or members
do not like what you said, they will tell
you to leave because they do not-want
anyone to say anything against them.
They all think that what they say is the
Golden Rule. The board is never wrong,
therefore the clubhouse is only used by
selective members.
Everyone in the subdivision who pay
their dues has the right to be included in
all activities and the use of the club-
house. If we are not included, why are
we paying an annual assessment per lot
each year. Also there are people in the
subdivision cussing other members out
and giving people the bird.
Some of the members, the ones
against the clubhouse, are not being
treated equally. There is a lawsuit filed
against The Knolls. We need to pray for
The Knolls so a democracy will prevail.
We hope the judge will be able to settle
the problems at The Knolls, so we can
have a democracy. What goes around,
comes around.

Migratory birds seem to have
dropped in number
Editor:
Where have all the migratory song

S isety an o al find lhAv notnd the
drastic drop in these birds. My spouse
and I feed these winter bird residents
and have noted a drastic decline mn their
numbers. Thus far nobody has been able
to figure out why this has occurred.
I believe I have the answer. All of
these migratory birds have stayed north
due to the past several mild winters and
the beloved Al Gore's spewing of global
climate change. So when an old-fash-
ioned winter showed up, they all froze
to death. ,
I wish to say thank you to Al Gore for
the loss of all these birds, but one good
thing has come out of this and that is
your private jet will have far fewer birds
to ingest into the jet engines of your
plane.

did not get to share how he was
able to stop drinking and being
involved in destructive behavior.
Two people made, the difference in
his life. He came from a good home
and e was an a het.
So what happened?
H e said by the time kids get to
high school, he felt they need a
refresher course from the DARE
officers as well as more honesty
from people whose lives were near-
ly destroyed from substance abuse.
But the final answer boiled down to
one thing: time.
Two people invested time in his
life. He was blessed to be caught in
destructive behavior by a sheriff's.
deputy who saw the potential in his
life. The deputy spent quality time
explaining the consequences of his
destructive behavior. Then soon
after' this, a young manl with Youth
for Christ shared his testimony, how
* Christ delivered him from a hope-
less life. The teen panelist learned
that a life being lived without hope
is a destructive life. He then made a
choice to turn his life around
stopped engaging in destructive
behavior.
SSo while we selected o~ur panel,
we never said, "Let's find -


town hall meeting to raise aware-
ness of the dangers of underage
drinking. Based upon the turnout,
support from businesses and
providers, as well as the attendance
of teenagers, it was a success!
April was Alcohol Awareness,
Month and this meetings was one of
nearly 1,600 held around the coun-
try. Initially, there were to be five
or six panelists: .a representative
from the judicial system, an inter-
vention specialist, a law enforce-
ment officer, a parent, and a teen or
two. However, after talking to a
teen, it was decided to expand the
paqel to include three tees, as well '
as adding a young recovered addict
and the brother of a DUI fatality. So '
while we expanded the panel, we
could not expand the-timne. The
teens did not get to fully express
their opinions, so what was the rest
of their message?
They all agreed there is an under-
age drinking problem in our county,
especially on weekends. Underage
drinkers are getting their alcohol
through adults: either from older
siblings, other family members,
fake IDs, getting adults to buy it for
them, or adults just give it to them.
The three teen panelists just hap-


INo one wants to see their child
grow up to become an alcoholic.
But what are we parents doing to-
make sure that does not happen? If
we knew that kids who start drink-
ing before the age of 15 have five
times greater chance of becoming
an alcoholic, would we support the
movement to stop underage drink-
in ?
It is hard to fathom that many
adults do not think underage drink-
ing is a problem. They think the age
of 21 is an unrealistic legal -
restraint. They say most of us drank
before the legal age and we are OK,
that kids will be kids, that it is real-
ly no big deal. However, what they
don't know is that alcohol is the
number one cause of death of our
youth: 5,000 deaths a year that are
alcohol related. They also do not
see the subtle impact underage
drinking has on the developing ado-
lescent brain. However, the scientif-
ic evidence is overwhelming of this
fact. (For the best summary of this
evidence, see Web' site at
www.why21.org/teen/ .)
On April 17, the Highlands
County Community Coalition for
the Reduction of Substance Abuse
Inc. held its first annual countywide.

pened to be athletes, but they said
we should not assume just because
kids ar~e involved in sports, they
will not drink.
These' panelists could not com-
pletely put the responsibility on the
parents to do a better job. It is
always, no matter how good or bad
a parent, the teens's choice whether
or not they are going to drink.
They believe this should be an
active effort by the teens to make
the right decisions. Howevei-, they
felt parents need to take the initia-
titre to talk to their kids about alco-
hol. (However, the adults on the
panel seemed to paint the picture
the parents hold the main responsi-
bility to prevent underage drinking.
There is no denying parents are the
first line of defense, are the ones
who should set the rules for their
kids, and should make it known that
underage drinking is wrong. But
even kids from homes where these
rules are set still get in trouble with
alcohol .) .
So what is the answer to reducing
underage drinking? One of the teens

street. They see, first hand,
the need and recognize the
hardship and despair that
denies families even the basic
necessities of life."

missioners except Stewart in
selecting Hall as the other
strong candidate.
Stewart didn't have enough
confidence in Hall or the oth-
ers to list a second choice.
Stokes was the only com-
missioner to choose 26-year
Army veteran Col. Needham.
"Congratulations, that was
quick," said Colin Baenziger,
chief head hunter of the search
firm bearing his name, of the
seven minutes it took to select
Wright.
Bates offered the motion
that Maxcyl seconded. The
vote was unanimous and those
in the audience applauded the
board's decision.
The advertised salary range
for county administrator,
being vacated by Carl' Cool
who is retiring after 1622 years
in the hot seat, was $110,000-
$160,000.

ADELT
Continued from 1A
motion to offer Adelt the
position, said he had been
very impressed with the way
she had handled the search
for a new police chief. He
added she has shown, "a will-
ingness to mak~e tough deci-
sions in tight fiscal times -
the right decisions."
Councilwoman Brenda
Gray and Mayor Sharon
Schuler pointed out that with
more than nine years of city
service, Adelt knows the city
and cares about it.
A new hire from outside
might simply be looking at
the ji~b as a stepping stone,
whereas with Adelt, it was the
fulfillment of a career, they
each said. -
Even the city attorney,
Gerald Buhr, entered the dis-
cussion twice to compliment
Adelt on her approach to her
work .
Hinson, while voting for
Adelt, expressed a wish that
the city government could
better represent its popula-
tion.
po e amite tt that 3tuhs
one example, did not have a
single officer of color.
"I'd like to see the city step
up and mirror (its people)" he
said
Adelt did not ask for, nor
was offered, a raise at this
time .
Her elevation left her for-
mer position, city clerk, open.
Cheryl Tietjen, the city's
records clerk who has been
filling inah ct clerk's
posinton wstp oontoed to it

DENTON
Continued from 1A
ordinance, Bates explained.
The diving charge that
would have created a public
bathing area would have
required a surveyed beach,
routine water sampling and a
permanent bathhouse facili-
ties, running water and all.
Given the choice ~of violat-
ing state law or the county's
own ordinance, -Battis said
he'd choose the latter.
"There's a way out and
that's not charging a fee," he

saictifying the issues is a
matter of amending the ordi-
nance (which could take a
few weeks due to public hear-
ings) and opening the boat
ramp as before.
The focus, Bates suggest-
ed, could shift from collect-
e ht hic o enforcing th

pAk anloetments had been
made to hire an attendant for
the weekends.
Bates asked Karuppa if the
county could charge for park-
ing and the Karuppa said it
could without creating a
bathing area.

When his younger brother, Zach, was
3 or 4 years old, for example, Marcus
taught him how to blow up his Hot
Wheels using firecrackers.
Andi even as recently as last October,
the last time he was home, he andi Zach
spent time jumping bicycles over a dirt
pile in the yard.
The visit was a special time because
he knew was leaving for Iraq in
November. The family celebrated an
early Thanksgiving and Christmas, com-
plete with a tree.
They noticed how much he had
grown, not physically, but emotionally,
truly becoming a man of substance and
depth.
"As much as he struggled in school," '
Sawyer said, "he excelled in the army."
She was amazed recently when in a
telephone conversation she asked him if
he was playing the guitar, something he
loved to do, and he said no, it was hang-
ing on his wall. He had put it away
while he was studying for his sergeant's
exam, he said, so he could focus more.
He did well on the test and was pro-
moted to sergeant posthumously.


Mathes looked forward to returning
home to start a family with his wife,
Jul ia.
They had married young and had a
rough start. But the war brought them

cut to the chamber Nov. 7, said
Pete Pollard. CRA executive
director.
The chamber contracted
with Stewart to perform the
work, which hen completed.
The former chamber office
was opened to the public for
its rest room facilities Feb. 9
during the CRA's Roaring '20s

"fe m our standpoint, the
work we have funded has been

Tuesday. "The rest room is

Pollard said the non-pay-
ment issue is between the
chamber and Stewart.
However, once the chamber
closes out the work on its for-
mer 'office, Pollard will
request an accounting of the
grant expenditures.
Until recently, the CRA had
no reason to attach more-
restrictive strings to the cham-
ber's grant.
"We'd be much more con-
cernedi about providing funds

SEBRING RECREATION CLUB
Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING Spring has
arrived in Highlands County
with all of its beauty and
some much needed rain. We
had a very warm winter and
even Winnie Wells was not all
that cold. But you should see
the smile on Winnie's face
with this weather. Come to
shuffleboard any evening that
we have it and you will be apt
to see that smile.
At 6:30 p.m. Monday is ice
cream shuffle. Ice cream shuf-
fle is also on Wednesday at
6:30 p.m. and pin shuffle on
Saturday at 6:30 also.
Richard Elleson should be
back with us. Rich canl tell
you where to find the best
cappuccino in the country.
Bill Hann will be able to be
seen at any of our shuffling as
well as many of the summer
tournaments as well. Irvin
Ishman, 94, will be shuff~line
if he is not on a cruise. I hav
heard that he has two lined up
this summer, hope we all
have his good health at his
age.
We shall see more of Joe
and Lisa LaCotti with the
shuffling in the evening. This
fits into their schedule better
than afternoon shuffleboard-
Edna Myatt is another that
you will be apt to find on the
courts this summer. We also
hope that Ruth Parker can
find time for us in her sched-
ule. You will also find her at a
lot of the summer tourna-
mlents-
Don and Sharon Rohman
will be with us; we may not
see much of Sharon with her
back. You will however see


cuchre, pinochic or cribbage,
talki to Edl and see what can be
dlone .
We would like to teach f`our
peopic that are in their 20's
the game of shuffleboard. So
if you are in this age group
and have three friends to join
you, stop in and talk to us. We
want some younger players
and this may be a start for all.
Ed Straub gives his phone
number and he wants you to
use it, 386-0245. He never
received one call about the
club this past season. If you
have an idea or question, call
Ed and see how he helps you.
Find us in back of the police

from Joy Dean thanking the
residents for their concern and


prayers while she was in the
hospital.
MWil Noel announced that
the Military Soup and'
Sandwich is scheduled for
Sunday, May 11, however he
is going to have a meeting
with his committee and since
this is Mother's Day there
may be a,change in the sched-

already planning to have a
Country Western Dance night.
Clyde Francis announced that
the Mustangs (men's day out)

Louise Smith and Rachel
Francis were the emcees.
Since we have no committee

month. The special committee
for holidays is getting together
to plan something for
Memorial Da April 23 the
following people showed up to
give the kitchen a good spring
cleaning. Thanks go out to
Bonnie Allen, Andy Anderson,
Helen Coppock, Clyde and
Rachel Francis and Carol Noel
for all the time and effort they
put into cleaning and sanitiz-
ing our clubhouse kitchen
which we all use throughout
the year.


Don andi you will have a hard l
rime staying wvith can andt his
left-handl shooting. Donl is
always such a gentleman even
when he has just beaten you.
Bill Schaeffer is another one
that you will findl at a court
somewhere in Florida. Bill
loves this game more than
most and you will find him at
all tournaments that he can
make. Larry and Virginia
Stump will be at every game
and tournament they .can
make. Larry is very fond of
pin shuffle and that is
Saturday evening. Ed Straub,
club president and chief
salesman, even finds some
time to shuffle with us. He
has a little more time now
with not manning the desk at
the club.
Carl Wile will be found at
the summer tournaments
again this year. He will travel
more this summer giving us a
chance to catch him with out
9 points. He may not be able to
be number one two years in a
row, witle his tra eling bt i

Carl is that he is the center of
attention because we all want
to beat him. Gene Wolf and
his nice wife Lorraine will
make a lot of shuffling this
summer. Lorraine is the only
other ex-Vermonter that I
have met shuffling. When the
word shuffleboard is men-
tioned, many think of
Clarence Wright and you will
find him at most vtourna
ments.
The names that have been
mentioned the last couple of
weeks are people that will
help ou with the game.
Please just show up at Sebring
Recreation Club any evening
that we shuffle and we will
help you learn the game. If


you are now playing in a park,
come and shuffic with us, just
for the fun. If you want, you
may choose to learn from
John Bushee whom is always
willing to help. You will
become part of our family as
many have told me this year.
You will not have to watch the
tapes on shuffeboar~d to learn
this game. Gene Wolf, Wally
Davis, John Bushee and
Ralph Day .are some of the
best teachers for this game
around.
Line dancing has some of
its members that have taken to
the roads and gone north. This
means more room for you on
the floor at this time than in
the winter. This also means
fewer new names for you to
learn at this time than when
we are at full membership. 11
you dance with us now, you
will be very comfortable
when the dancers from the
north return. So what are you
waiting for? Come and dance
with us just once, to see if you
like it or not. Learn new
dances as we learn them andl
stay in s ape.
Table tennis needs more
players and if you are holding
out come and see if you can
beat Tom. Tom is a little out
of shape, after cutting all of
the brush and stumps out
front. Tom also needs a
friend, for he is still looking,
trying to fmnd one. You will
also find Tom shuffling when
not playing table tennis.
Larry will be going north
before long so Ed and Tom
are two that you will have to
beat.
Cards have cut back to only
bridge at this time for the start
of the season. If you have a
group for any game like


third place, Pam Wedra.

The graduating senior from

hopes to graduate -with a

aspires to become a profes-

"It's an amazing feeling, '
he said after signing the letter

"I'm gladreveryone put in th'e

SEB-RING It seems
kind of fitting, this conver-
gence of player and school
- both symbols of resur-
gence.
Blue Streak senior Kyle
Long broke out in his senior
season to the extent that he
signed a letter of intent to
play football for the


Mississippi College
Choctaws JV/Ionday.
A remarkable achieve-
ment, considering his junior
season was a lost one as he
battled illness arid injury.
"This was my second sea-
son on varsity," Long said.
"But I really didn't play
much last year when I got
sick with mono."
The Choctawi program


itself has gone through a
resurgence inder thircl(.year
head- coach Norman Joseph.
The Ihree years prior to
his arrival, the team had 4-

him the chance to play his
freshman year, something
Watts wanted,
The benefits o;f staying
local were more than a schol-

minutes away."


officials in the area, that they
wouldn't be able to cover us
anymore."
It's not the distance that
their officials cover to get to
Sebring, Avon Park and
Hardee games that poses the
problem.
It is a soon-to-be increase
in workload that will stretch
the association too thin.
"Last year the Florida High
Schol Association dropped
fall soccer, which ~four teams
in Lakeland played," Quarles
said. "Another high school is
opening in Lakeland, so that
puts five more teams in the
area in winter soccer for them
to cover."
The next closest officials
association from which to
seek officials, according to


Quarles is in Bradenton.
In addition 'to their game
fees, officials also do get
paid mileage, which could
end up being cost prohibitive
if they would be coming in
from too-distant areas.
"Sam Morton, the presi-
dent of Ridge, told us to
recruit people in the area to
be officials, preferably three
per school," Quarles said.
"We're doing what we can to
find people to become offi-
cials and have them join the
Ridge Association.
"Even if they have limited
knowledge of the game. they
will be taught and canl start
