Commission honors Cool with proclamation


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.comn
SEBRING - Highlands
County Administrator Carl Cool
expects to enjoy a full day of
retirement before tackling his
wife's honey-do list.
Cool, who in 1975 was hired as
assistant county engineer, was
honored Tuesday with a procla-
mation.
A public retirement ceremony
is scheduled from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
today at the Agri-Civic Center on
George Boulevard.


Cool was roasted at a private
dinner for the commissioners two
weeks ago. His last official da.y at
work is May 30.
His replacement, Michael
Wright of Tallahassee, accepted
the contract approved by the
board at their May 13 meeting.
Wright begins work June 2.
"My wife asked me what I was
doing the morning of June 2,"
Cool said Tuesday, during a break
after the commission approved
the proclamation in his honor. "I
told her I was going fishing. She


said, 'Oh, that's great. After 33
years, you deserve it.'"
She then asked about his plans
for that Monday afternoon, his
first full weekday in retirement.
He said he was going golfing.
Again, she agreed he earned
the right to hit the links to cele-
brate his career, about half of
which was as the county's first
administrator.
"But on Tuesday she said she
needs help with her signs," Cool
said of his wife Maureen, a

his vision was to
make the county
'a little better.'


Arrest made


in Highway


Park double


shooting

One victim was hit six
times and survived
By TREY CSHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID - An arrest
has been made in the May 11
shooting of two men in front of
the Highway Park liquor store.
Officials are treating the case
as attempted murder.
One of the victims, a 26-year-
old, was shot six times in the leg
and back, according to a report
by Officer Anthony McGann.
The victims drove themselves
to Florida Hos-
.pital in Lake
Placid. The 26-
year-old victim
was transported
to Tampa
General Hospital
witi . serious
Bryant injuries, but was
released three
days later.
The other victim, a 19-year-
old with unknown injuries, was
released the same evening.
Officials arrested Matwain
Bryant, 24, of Lake Placid, on
Friday and charged him with
attempted murder without pre-
meditation.
"Due to the number of shots
fired into the victim, it is appar-
ent the perpetrator was attempt-
ing to kill the victim," McGann
said.
During the investigation, offi-
cers received consistent accounts
from witnesses, the arrest report
said.
The witnesses recalled a phys-
ical altercation between two peo-
ple, one accompanying Bryant

Winners will each get more than $50 grand


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING - Two of four win-
ning lottery tickets were bought in
Sebring, but only one of the local
winning tickets has been claimed.
Each of the four winning tick-
ets in Monday's Fantasy 5 game
are worth $53,843.66. Sarasota
resident John Warren has already
come forward as one of the win-
ners. Warren bought his ticket at
the Citgo station at 1409 U.S. 27
S. in Sebring. The unclaimed tick-
et was purchased at the 98
Foodtown at 6106 U.S. 98.
"Fifty thousand dollars is a lot
of money for someone that's hav-
ing a hard time," said 98
Foodtown owner Rebecca Masri.


Masri has owned the store at
U.S. 98 for the past 18 years and
although she sold a'ticket for $1.8
million last year, it doesn't get
old.
"I get excited when someone
scratches off a $20 winner," she
said.
Both stores-will receive $500,
regardless of whether the winning
ticket is claimed.
The buyer of the winning 98
Foodtown ticket has 180 days to
come forward: The winner will
have to claim the ticket in person,
either at the local office (in Ft.
Myers), or any other state lottery
office.
If the winnings aren't claimed,
80 percent of the prize money will


go into the education trust fund,
while the other 20 percent will go
back into overhead for the lottery.
The winning numbers from
Monday's drawing are 5-8-20-25-
36. The other two winning
Fantasy 5 tickets were purchased
in Miami and Orlando.
There were 313 tickets that
matched four numbers, each of
which won $110.50. A total of
10,309 ticketsmatched three
numbers (each of those are worth
$9), and 95,423 will win a Quick
Pick ticket for matching two of
the five numbers.

Ride of Silence events set in

Sebring and Lake Placid

'By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING - The Ride of Silence began as an
impromptu memorial in Dallas, Texas, in 2003,
for a bicyclist struck and killed by a school bus'
mirror.
A year later, the event grew from 1,000 partici-
pants to 2,500 in Dallas, and added 50 partner
cities from Hawaii to eastern Canada.
Highlands County bicyclists, mostly by way of
the local club known as the
Pedalers, joined in the reverent 'We want

in 2001 while riding his bicycle Pedalers

- to the not-so famous, such as the occasional
migrant worker or a random recreational cyclist.
These memorials are designed to be silent for
two reasons.
The first goal is to elevate the seriousness of
the ride above the normal group outing.
Second, a throng of muted bicyclists can catch
the attention and curiosity of motorists and pedes-
trians, hopefully elevating the community's
awareness that state laws protect cyclists on the
road.

Lake Denton not so tired after cleanup


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - The
Sherwood brothers - Matt,
Bruce, Wade and Todd -
recently took advantage of the
current low water level to pull
old tires out of Lake Denton.
A long time ago, people put
tires in lakes' thinking that
bass bred in them. They don't.
Bass breed on the sandy bot-
tom of lakes. The tires even-
tually break down in the water
and cause pollution.
Using a 1963 antique Ford
pickup truck supplied by their
father, Bob Sherwood, they
backed it up to the lake, swam
out to the tire dump and
hooked a chain to the individ-
ual tires. The tires were then
dragged out of the lake one at
a time.
It ended up being a much
bigger job than they thought it
was going to be. A water moc-
casin occasionally patrolled

but as the divers always swam
for their lives away from him,
he did not delay efforts for
long.
The tires were then loaded
onto a trailer supplied by
Steve Noel - some of the
tires were so big that it took
three men to roll them onto
the tfailer - and transferred
to a pick-up point for dispos-
al.
Sherri Cooper, the
Coordinator for Keep
Highlands County Beautiful,
facilitated the effort by
arranging for the pick-up and
disposal of the tires.
According to her count, 116
regular tires and 38 tractor
tires were removed from the
lake. The Solid Waste Scale
House on Arbuckle Creek
Road recorded an aggregate
of 8,180 pounds of tires
removed.

RIDES
Continued from 1A
But, as Morris said, riders
and non-riders must be edu-
cated about their respective
responsibilities.
All the rules that apply to
car drivers apply to bike rid-
ers - the latter are allowed to
ride on the road, even if a
sidewalk or recreation path is
nearby.
Likewise, cyclists must
obey stop signs and traffic
signals. They must indicate
their intentions to turn left,
right or to slow down and
stop.
Morris said the Rides of
Silence start at 7 p.m. tonight.
In Sebring, cyclists of all
abilities will meet at Sebring
Civic Center, which includes
the library and City Pier.
In Lake Placid, Robert
Summers is the point man for
the ride that begins at Devane
Park, the circle on which Lake
Placid's library and town hall
are located.
"We'll go downtown to cre-
ate visibility for the commu-
nity," Summers said.
Both rides are slated for
maximum speeds of 12 mph,
covering distances of 10-12
miles.


COOL
Continued from 1A
Realtor. "I guess my retire-
ment is only going to be one
day long."
The proclamation, read by
Chairman Edgar Stokes and
unanimously approved by the
board, highlighted Cool's
accomplishments such as the
Government Center,
Emergency Operations
Center, Sebring Parkway and
various jail and courthouse
expansions and renovations.
Cool is credited with "a
county road program that is
the envy of other counties
resulting in more than 65
miles of dirt roads paved"
during his tenure.


"We will definitely have
the kids and non-experienced
riders on the sidewalk,"
Morris said, explaining the
Sebring group will ride
around Lake Jackson.
The Sebring ride will also
include bottled water, which
the Pedalers will distribute
before the ride. The Pedalers
also will avail its members to
assist the less experienced.


Helmets are "strongly
encouraged" Morris and
Summers agreed, and riders
are encouraged to meet, greet
and visit until the rides begin.
But, once the kick stands go
up, there's "there's absolutely
no talking because it's in
memory of those fallen bicy-
clists," Morris said.
For more information,
please visit rideofsilence.org.


The proclamation described
Cool as a visionary for his
growth-oriented, forward-
thinking method to problem
solving.
"Carl was instrumental in
Highlands County's (2002)
receipt of the National
Association of Counties'
Excellence and Innovation in
Government Award for
expanding service hours to
the public from 45 hours to 55
hours per week," Stokes said,


reading the proclamation,
"without increasing costs
through the development of
the 10-hour work day."
In receiving the honor,
Cool told the board that his
vision in 1975 was to improve
the county.
"I look back now and I trust
I have made Highlands
County a little better," he
said.
"Thank you for the many
years."

accounts, Bryant allegedly

The Highlands County
Sheriff's Office is not releas-

Fire assessment the right

way to go for Sebring

When it comes to those services we typically hand
over to professionals to deal with on our behalf, none
is more critical than fire fighting.
Whether paid or volunteer, all firefighters need
extensive specialized knowledge and constant train-
ing to remain in peak physical condition and sharp
with cutting-edge information and methods.
When one's house is on fire, smoke billowing,
flames sizzling, children in danger, one wants an
immediate response by a well-trained team of indi-
viduals who know what they are doing and have the
equipment to do it.
In other words, no matter what else might have to
be cut out of a city budget, funding for fire depart-
ments must be kept safe.
It is also important, because fire is an equal oppor-
tunity destroyer, that everyone pay a share in keeping
fire departments in top-of-the-line condition.
Sebring's city council is now discussing how to do
that.
It seems to us that the suggested fire assessment is
the fairest way to distribute the costs.
We also strongly feel that an assessment policy
should include everyone - non-profit organizations
like churches, owners of empty lots, everyone.
It costs just as much to put out a fire in the Lord's
house as it does a humbler one, and even fires in
empty lots can be expensive.
Recently, for example, a 25-acre brush fire -
which with slightly different weather conditions
would have threatened two mobile home parks -
demanded the resources of five different fire depart-
ments.
We do have one concern, however.
The state legislature-has been making noises it will
soon rescind a local government's ability to charge an
assessment.
If Sebring's move to impose one at this time is
meant to simply to beat out state-level politicians in a
political power play game, then we cannot support it.
- If ad valorem taxes are covering the city's expens-
es, for example, and are likely to do so for the fore-
seeable future, then why impose an assessment?
On the other hand, if the funding is necessary, or if
the millage rate can be lowered because the fire
assessment frees up ad valorem dollars for other pur-
poses, then so much the better.

Editor:
Publix advertised a Hibachi Grill in
the store circular. Stella at the Courtesy
Counter took my name and phone num-
ber, promised to call when the grills
came in. I phoned the store late after-
noon. Dave volunteered to call around to
other stores to locate a grill for me.
Thursday I stopped at Publix to inquire
about the grill. Dave Abner said he had a
grill for me - brought out the grill in a
box. Everyone knows what the phrase
"some assembly necessary" means. Dave
picked up on my hesitation and "volun-
teered" to assemble the grill for me.
There are many considerate employees
working at Publix Supermarket in South
Gate, Dave Abner is an exceptional per-

truly meant so much to me.
Again, thank you Dave, your kindness

Hopefully, DUI demonstrations will leave lasting impression


" .On May 16, the Lake
m Commercial News Providers Placid High School, through
Dr. Melissa Sohn (Student
Government adviser) and
coordinated with all local
EMS and law enforcement,
_ put on a realistic mock DUI
car crash re-enactment that
. sent a chilling reminder of the
* . - ultimate danger of drinking
Sand driving.
On April 18, at Sebring
High School, School
Resource Officers also put on
a powerful educational and
* informative program to the
. . juniors and seniors before
_ . their prom, to educate them
. about the dangers of drinking
and driving.
- * While there was a message
* in each of these programs that
. it is illegal to consume alco-
. . . hol before the age of 21, it is
not clear if the students fully
. grasped that message. What
was made clear was that if
they do drink, they are not to
drive. We hope they share that
, message with every person
- . . . - over the age of 21 they know
* - - - . that drinks.


Guest Column
Debbie Lees
All of the participants in
these programs - EMS, law
enforcement and the school
administration - do not want
to lose another student to a
preventable death. They are to
be commended for caring and
going above and beyond their
mandate to educate students..
The Highlands County
Community Coalition for
Substance Abuse Reduction
would like to expand on the
messages given to the more
than 800 students, teachers
and parents who attended the
mock crash at LPHS and the
juniors and seniors who
attended the program at SHS.
It is illegal to drink under the
age of 21 and Highlands
County has a problem with
underage drinking. We know
this from several factors and
first and foremost is from the
last Florida Youths Substance
Abuse Survey, which reflect-
ed the average age of those
kids in middle school who


drink began at age 11 1/2 and
those that begiti drinking in
high school were 13%' years
old. That averages out to the
fact that 57 percent of the
middle and high school kids
admit to drinking.
While we want to focus on
the fact that 43 percent of the
students do not, all our kids
are vulnerable to peer pres-
sure to drink unless we get
the message out that drinking
under the age of 21 is not
only illegal, but that it also
has a number of serious health
consequences.
First and foremost,'brain
research has shown us that the
human brain is not fully
developed until the early 20s.
Also, if teens start drinking
before the age of 15, they are
four times more likely to
become lifelong substance
abusers. Please visit
www.why21.org to learn more
about the dangers of sub-
stance abuse among our
youth.
There is also a section at
this Web site to give parents


tips on how to communicate
with their teens.
HCCC is dedicated to edu-
cating the community on the
facts behind the dangers of
underage drinking, illegal
substance use, and misuse of
prescription and over the
counter drugs by our youth.
We held our first community
event, the Countywide Town
Hall Meeting on April 17 and
are looking for more,opportu-
nities to educate the commu-
nity on these facts. We are
especially thankful to the
News-Sun, which supports
our efforts ahd provides valu-
able editorial space to share
our message.

Debbie Lees is a retired special
agent, FBI, now working at the
Highlands County Sheriffs
Office as Substance Abuse
Reduction Coordinator under a
state grant. The Highlands
County Community Coalition
for Substance Abuse Reduction
meets the second Wednesday of
every month at Florida

natural causes. She was born Sept. 17, 1924 in Defuniak Springs, Florida; a
daughter of Jacob Ambus and Anna Ellen Lee (Bell) Bishop. Mrs. Dowler was
raised in Avon Park, Florida and graduated from high school there as the class
valedictorian. During WWII, she worked for the U.S. Government as a clerk ana
secretary at the Avon Park Bombing Range, and later at Langley Air Force Base
Virginia for the Air Force and NACA (now NASA). In 1949, she moved to Dener

II-Gustat students study water conservation


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Eighth-grade
students at Hill-Gustat
Middle School in Amy
Bubb's integrated science
class recently completed a
project about water.
In celebration of April
being Water Conservation
Month, students learned about
many facets -of our most
important resource.
In class they discussed the
importance of water in our
daily lives, water pollution,
the quality of water nationally
and globally, the role played
by Southwest Florida Water
Management District in keep-
ing our water potable and
water conservation.
Students then got a chance
to read "A Drop of Water" by
Walter Wick.
In his book, Wick shares
with the reader beautiful pho-
tographs taken of water and


discusses various physical
aspects of water.
The students conducted
experiments about condensa-
tion, capillary attraction and
molecule movement which
were found in the book. They
took photos of their experi-
ments.
They also researched the
Peace River watershed, which-
supplies water to a portion of
Highlands County, using the
SWFWMD Web site.
They then compiled a class
PowerPoint presentation shar-
ing all the information
learned and tips on how to
conserve water.
Bubb and her students
would like to thank
Southwest Florida Water
Management District for
funding the books and provid-
ing so much information for
the students.

Helping Florida's sea turtles survive


requires beach responsibility


* Leave only footprints and
keep beaches dark

By FWC STAFF

Ancient creatures of the sea fight a bat-
tle each year to reproduce and survive in a
world not always hospitable to them.
Sea turtles nesting on Florida's beaches
face an uncertain future, according to the
FloridaFish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission's (FWC) scientists. Threats come
from encroachment on nesting beaches by
coastal development and encounters with
pollutants, beach debris and fishing gear.
Five species of sea turtles nest on Florida
beaches, with the loggerhead showing up
in the largest numbers. Green and leather-
back sea turtles also nest in the Sunshine
State. Two other species, Kemp's Ridley and
hawksbill sea turtles nest infrequently in
Florida but inhabit Florida waters. The FWC
lists the loggerhead as threatened species
with the other four listed as endangered: .
However, the loggerhead's status could
change because of data collected showing
a downward trend since 1998. During the
2007 April to September nesting season,
scientists found the lowest number of log-
gerhead nests in 19 years. At the same time,
the number of loggerheads found dead, sick
or injured each year in Florida has more
than doubled during the past decade.
"If we don't do something to reverse this
trend, the loggerhead will also become en-
dangered," said Robbin Trindell, an FWC
Imperiled Species Program administrator.
Nearly 90 percent of the loggerhead
population that nests in the southeastern
United States, nests on Florida's beaches.
This population is one of only two large log-
gerhead nesting populations worldwide.
Sea turtles are air-breathing reptiles
well-suited for sea life with a hydrodynam-
ic-shaped shell, large and powerful front
flippers. These physical characteristics en-
able them to dive deep into the ocean and
to swim long distances.
Female loggerhead turtles begin coming
on shore in the spring with peak months


for laying eggs in June and July. The nest-
ing female digs a hole with her hind flip-
pers and then lays approximately 115 eggs.
After covering the nest with sand, the mas-
sive creature, weighing nearly 300 pounds,
makes her way back to the ocean. A female
might come ashore two to five times during
the nesting season. Amazingly, the females
come back to the same beach where they
hatched decades earlier. The males, once
they make the long crawl after hatching out
of the egg, never return to land.
Major disturbances to sea turtle nest-
ing habits come from seawalls and beach
nourishment projects. Individuals can
help by following safe beach lighting sug-
gestions, filling holes dug for sand castles
and picking up litter.
"Just one light can kill thousands of
turtles over several years," Trindell said.
"Many lights burn all night, without con-
tributing to human safety."
Late in the summer, after an incuba-
tion of 55-70 days, the hatchlings begin
breaking out of their shells and crawling
, out of the nest. Instinct tells the 1- to 2-inch
hatchling to head toward the brightest ho-
rizon and away from dark silhouettes. In
days long gone in Florida, the brightest ho-
rizon shone over the ocean, and the hatch-
lings would move away from the shadows
on the dunes and begin the crawl to the sea.
Nest predators might include raccoons,
ghost crabs and fire ants. In modern-day
Florida, hatchlings must crawl through a
battlefield of debris left by humans. Furni-
ture discarded by beachgoers can obstruct
a nesting female turtle or become a trap
for the hatchlings. Avoiding firework left-
overs strewn along the hatchling's path
can cause exhaustion and delay in getting
to the water. If stranded on the beach when
the sun rises, the hatchling's chance for
survival diminishes and dehydration and
sun exposure become hazards.
"We can all help sea turtles survive,"
Trindell said. "If we just take personal re-
sponsibility, we can go a long way to ensure
the sea turtle co-exists with us for many
more years to come."

creatures of the sea

* Blair Witherington keeps a close watch on sea turtles


By FWC STAFF -

Blair Witherington returned
from Oman, a country in the
Middle East, in April excited
about the future of loggerhead
turtles, despite discouraging
news in Florida from nesting
counts in 2007.
Witherington, a research scien-
tist with the FWC's Fish and Wild-
life Research Institute (FWRI),
studies sea turtles daily.
I "The loggerhead population is
in serious decline," Witherington
said. "Eighty percent of the world's
loggerheads nest on beaches
in Florida and on the island of
Masirah in the Indian Ocean off
the coast of Oman."
In Florida, the loggerhead is
the most common sea turtle. But
worldwide, the loggerhead is rare,


said Witherington, who went to
Masirah to help set up a monitor-
ing program for the threatened
reptile, similar to what Florida tises
on its 33 index nesting beaches.

"We have made headway
in conservation efforts
for sea turtles."
Witherington coordinates Flor-
ida's Index Nesting Beach Survey,
which is conducted annually from
May 15 to Aug. 31. The process in-
volves volunteers who go out be-
fore sunrise each morning, seven
days a week during the nesting
season. Volunteers monitor nests
laid during the night and report
false crawls - signs of a se.a turtle's
flippers in the sand but no nest.
"There are indications that
there may be declining numbers
in the loggerhead population in


Masirah as well," Witherington
said. "But we need reliable data to
determine it conclusively."
Witherington received his
Ph.D. from the University of Flori-
da, and his dissertation addressed
the orientation of hatchling sea
turtles and the effect of light on
their journey to the sea.
"If they head in the wrong di-
rection, they die," Witherington
said of the effect of direct lighting
on the beach.
Counties and municipalities in
the majority of the sea turtle nest-
ing areas in Florida now have ordi-
nances in place for lighting man-
agement, something that brings a
smile to Witherington's face.
"This is absolutely a success
story in Florida," he said. "We have
made headway in conservation ef-
forts for sea turtles."
Witherington also conducts
neo-natal research. For years,
scientists have called the post-
hatchling's first year, "the lost
year" because no one knew where
the hatchlings went once they
made it to the ocean from the
nesting beach.
Witherington and his team


discovered that hatchling logger-
heads and green turtles migrate
out to the floating, open-ocean
sargassum (seaweed) communi-"
ty offshore from nesting beaches.
They also found hawksbill and
Kemp's Ridley sea turtles that are
approximately a year old.
"It's very exciting to find small
Kemp's Ridley because they are
the rarest of sea turtles," he said.
"We usually see large juveniles
or adults swimming in Florida's
waters."
While concerns remain about
the loggerhead's survival, With-
erington believes the work done
by the FWC and other groups,
such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service and the National Marine
Fisheries Service, will help con-
serve this giant reptile.
"I work with a team of skilled
and well-informed people," he
said. "And the team extends be-
yond the FWC with more than
2,000 people in the state doing
nesting counts and conveying
conservation messages.
"Florida would be much
poorer without our sea turtles,"
Witherington said.

SEBRING RECREATION CLUB
Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING - It appears that the
members of the club are getting
older. Patty Boswell fell on her way
north; she is all right but sore. Larry
Stump is beyond words to describe
his appearance, black and blue fore-
head and both sides of his face from
eyes to lower chin swollen and dark
blue. Sharon Rohman with a back
that is trouble for her, but improv-
ing. Ed Williams just had replace-
ment surgery and now has his other
leg veins opened up on May 5. Ada
Williams had surgery May 11. Lon
Mollins and Bill Shaffer have wives
with poor health at this time. All of
the above need to be in our prayers
and those that have good health
should not be left out of our prayer
life.
About the game of shuffleboard,
it's not a difficult game and it adds a
new dimension to your social life.
What other sport allows a mother
and son to challenge a father and
daughter? It is about placement,
coordination and having fun, not
brute strength or demonic speed. If
you like people and enjoy being
active, you'll have fun and get some
exercise.
Ask Richard "Rich" Elleson about
shuffleboard and try to keep a
straight face while you listen. He can
tell you how he saw a score of


minus-2 to 30 lose in the last box
with 30 having the hammer. Rich is
a real gentleman and fun to listen to.
Bill and Joyce Kaleita will back up
the story told by "Rich." Betty Rizor
joined us and shot very well on her
first night.
Never, never try to send your
opponent's St. Pete to the kitchen.
Do not be a headhunter.
Headhunting may be excused only
when there is a free ride to be had, or
in rare cases with your. opponent's
Tampa Pilot. If you have any ques-
tions about this or shuffleboard, see
John Bushee for the answers. He
even gives free lessons in the winter
at the club on Saturday mornings.
We also offer table tennis, line
dancing and bridge. One stop fun: at
the Recreation Club.
We just heard from Gary and Judy
Holloway and it is warm in
Wisconsin. Strange wearing long
pants and sweatshirts now for them,
but this will change.
Jim and Joan Mondry should be
home soon and be happy to be with
children again.
We serve more than just Sebring;
ask Maria Sheehan from Lake
Placid. Maria is a good member and
she attends all year, also with a smile
for everyone and a kind word too.
Call Ed Straub with any questions
about the club at 386-0245.
Shuffleboard questions, see John
Bushee for answers about the game
or even care of courts.
Find us in back of the Sebring


Police Station at 333 Pomegranate

TROPICAL HARBOR
Barbara Kelleher

LAKE PLACID - Monday morn-
ing gathering on May 12 to attend
the coed coffee, which was a special
treat because doughnuts and pastries
were provided by Bill and Jan Butts
who were celebrating their 57th
wedding anniversary along with
Andy and Rita Anderson who are
celebrating their 62nd anniversary.
Jan and Bill were the hosts that made
the coffee and served the various
doughnuts provided by the two cou-
ples for all the residents to enjoy.
Andy and Rita could not be with us,
since they are visiting their children
and friends in Indiana.
George Susco said they are plan-
ning to paint a divider so people do
not make a wide swing but stay
within the proper side when entering
the Belle Tower Avenue and exiting
on to Lake Clay Drive.
We did have a visitor and Rachel
Francis introduced her friend Bonnie
from the Keys. She and her husband
stopped by to visit with the Francis's
before leaving to return to New York
State for the summer. Carol Noel,
our Sunshine coordinator, had sign-
up sheets for the following: Jim
Leach, Joanne Haut and Ruby
Pfeiffer, also to let everyone know
that Leonard Rehbein passed away.


Keep all in your prayers. Carol also
wanted to thanik Jim and Nella
TenBroeke for the lovely ride he
provided to them and their daughters
who were visitingg this Mother's Day
on their pontoon boat.
Rachel Francis announced that she
has tickets on sale for the Memorial
Day picnic. The committee will be
cooking hot dogs and hamburgers
with all the trimmings along with the
beverage. The cost is $2 each. Bring
a dish to pass that goes with a pic-
nic-type dinner that will be from 4-6
p.m.
We all sang "Happy Birthday" to
Laura Bailie and Brenda Knoche,
who were present. We then sang
"Happy Anniversary" to Bill and Jan
Butts and all of the residents cele-
brating who could not be with us at
this time.
Bill and Jan Butts had a visit from
their son Jerry and his wife Gail
from Winthrop Harbor, Ill. They
arrived on April 26 on his mom's
birthday. They enjoyed a week of
perfect weather, swimming in the
pool and the opportunity to relax and
spend some time with his parents.
We're glad to have Patty and
Dickie Blount back. They spent the
week of May 3-10 with their daugh-
ter Lori Horner in Orange, Va.
Carol Noel's daughters, Annie
Noel and Cathy Allen who reside at
Boynton Beach, came to spend the
Mother's Day weekend with their
mom and dad. They had a full week-
end between pontoon rides, swim-


ming in the pool, playing cards and
enjoying a relaxing weekend with
their family.
Barbara Kelleher's two daughters
and their husbands and granddaugh-
ter, Kellie Horton, came to visit
Saturday to take their mom and dad
out to dinner. Kathy and Jerry Beck
are from Lakeport and Patricia and
Mike Underwood are from Belle
Glade and Kellie is from Belle
Glade. All went to the Olive Garden
for dinner and returned to the
Kelleher home for coffee and pie.
Sunday following church, George
took Barbara out for a wonderful
breakfast at Bob Evans. It was a
great Mother's Day weekend.
May 13 at ladies coffee, our
emcee was Rachel Francis and cof-
fee was made by Carol Noel. We had
seven ladies present. The ladies
socialized and told each other of the
visits they had from their children
this Mother's Day or the phone calls
they received from their families liv-
ing out of state.

Simmons, Vazquez




sign at SFCC, Polk


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@niewssun.ciom
SEBRING - After a flurry
of Sebring football players
signing to play collegiately,
the Blue Streak baseball
team has joined in.
Adam Simmons and Tony
Vazquez both signed on the
dotted line Tuesday morning
to extend their respective
playing careers at the col-
lege level.
Simmons will stay close
to home by accepting an
invitation' from South
Florida Community
College, continuing the
pipeline of Highlands
County players becoming
Panthers.
Vazquez is moving a bit
further, though not much, in
signing with the Polk
ICommunity College
iVikings.

'He (Joe

Arnold) is
someone that
can really help
,me improve and

be as good a
. player as I can
be.'

TONY VAZQUEZ
"I really like their coach,"
Vazquez said of third-year
head man Joe Arnold. "He is
someone that can really help
me improve and become as
good a player as I can be."
It would seem likely,
given Arnold's resume.
Prior to taking over at
Polk, Arnold worked for 10
,years in the New York
,Yankee organization, serv-
ing as a minor league man-
ager and East Coast
Supervisor of Scouting.
Before the tenure with the
Yankees, Arnold was the
head coach at the University
of Florida for 11 seasons,
leading the Gators to two
College World Series
appearances and three SEC
titles.
"I know I've got to get
stronger and work on my
hitting," Vazquez said. "And
get faster."
Such self-analysis might
seem a bit overdoing it, as
Vazquez and Simmons both
played big parts in Sebring
reaching the state regional
final game each of the last
two seasons - and each will
be representing Sebring in
this weekends FACA base-
ball tournament.
Vazquez hopes to follow
in the successful footsteps
of older brother, Kiko, who
was named All-Conference
USA First Team in 2007 as a
member of the University of

ball career as an SFCC Panther while, below, Tony

Central Florida baseball
team.
For Simmons, the choice
wasn't too tough, given
he'll be reunited with some
former teammates and
knows the Panther program
under head coach Rick Hitt.
There was one other fac-
tor that helped the decision
making.
"I get to keep my bed-
room," he said. "I hope to
play third and still pitch.
I'm just glad to get the
chance and I'll be working


hard this fall."
Their final high school
season didn't turn out quite
the way they had hoped, but
their hard work and ability
helped the Blue Streaks to
heights not seen in many
years and has given them
the opportunity to pursue
thqir careers further.
Even if it will make the
ex-teammates now confer-
ence foes, which should
make for some interesting
match-ups in the coming
seasons.

Dixie Youth Majors



It was the Elk's day


By DAN HOEHNE
daciiiel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING - It was a slow
charge at first, but soon
enough it was an Elk stainm-
pede Monday night in Dixie
Youth Majors action as the
Elks ran away with a 14-3 win
over Highlands Today.
RBI hits in the first by
Ryan Davidson and Jacob
Cram staked them to a 2-0
lead, which would double in
the second when Byron Cobb
knocked in his brother
Cameron with a two-base hit
and came in himself on an
error.
That lead held until the
fourth before . Austin
Westergom knocked in two
more with a double and Tyler
Bertoniere and
Elks J o r d a n
14 Strickland had
14 run scoring
hits to make it
Highlands 8-0.
Highlands
scratched for
one in the bot-
tom of the inning when
Rowdy Sebring's ground out
brought Matthew Simpson in,
but the Elks came right back
with two more in the fifth.
Donovan Stanton's single
brought Cameron Cobb in and-
Westergom's swinging bunt
got Jordan Austin in for a 10-
1 lead.
Highlands went in order in
their half of the fifth and the
Elks blew it open even more

in the sixth..
Davidson lead off with a
home run over the right-cen-
ter. field fence and Stanton
notched another RBI.
Austin brought one in with
an infield hit and WestergomV
brought home the 14th run
with another single.
Highlands added two in the
bottom of the sixth with
Simpson knocking in Jacob
Hamilton with a double, steal-
ing third and coming in ofi an
error to provide for the final
margin.

Sebring Native Earns




Academic Honor


Special to the News-Sun
Correa is Harding's tough-
est hitter to strike out with
only 12 in 288 career at-bats.
SEARCY - Harding
University junior designated
hitter Wisley Correa earned
Second-Team ESPN the
Magazine Academic All-
District VI honors Thursday.
He is Harding's first
Academic All-District hon-
oree since Jake Kirby in 2003.
Correa, a native of Sebring,
Fla., was second on the team
in hitting at .329 and added a
home run and 33 RBI, also
second-highest among Bison
players. In his two-year career


Wisley Correa
at Harding, Correa has a .330
average, 14th-best in school
history. He is also the tough-

MLBPA rubs off on NFL


Uh oh, we may have another
union that could shoot itself in
the foot.
We've seen how powerful,
and often foolish, the Major
League Baseball Player's asso-

Blocking all attempts at drug
testing for steroids - look at the
mess that got them into, with
big-name casualties of the
steroid era looking like so much
road-kill these days.
Then there was the whole
salary cap debacle, in which
they refused the hard cap, set
limits on the maximum before
the luxury tax kicked in for rev-
enue sharing - but then refusing
to set a minimum amount that
must be paid, therefore giving
team owners the chance to
pocket any extra .profits, rather
than paying the players.
After all, those players essen-
tially told them they could.
Well, now the NFL Player's
Association looks like they may
be about to follow their baseball
brethren's lead.

Some

By BOB JENSEN
In many areas of the
Midwest, walleye fishing for
the next couple of weeks will
be one of transition.
And, with the strange
weather so far this year, this
transition period could be
even a few days longer than
ordinary.
For the most part, the
walleyes have completed their
annual spawning ritual and
are starting to move in the
direction of their summer
feeding haunts.
However, this movement
usually takes a little while.
While they are in this peri-
od of moving away from
spawning areas and to feeding
locations, the fish can be a lit-
tle difficult to stay on.


s for transition Walleyes


They could be in one spot
today and somewhere com-
pletely different a couple of
days later.
Here are some ideas for
catching more walleyes dur-
ing this transition period.
Remember that the male
fish usually start biting a little
sooner than the females.
Apparently the spawn is
more physically taxing for the
females so they take longer to
recover from it.
The males go on the bite
right after the spawn.
Males are usually smaller
than females in the fish world,
but that doesn't mean you
won't catch any big fish.
You might,, but it's more
likely that your catch will be
dominated by smaller fish.


It works well to continue to
fish near the areas where the
spawn occurred.
Walleyes generally spawn
on sand or rubble areas that
taper gradually.
Current is good.
After the spawn they'll
hang around these areas for a
little while.
If you can find a drop-off or
an emerging weedbed near the
spawning area, be sure to
work that area over pretty
good.
There are several good
ways to fish for walleyes now.
I prefer to use a faster pres-
entation to locate the fish,
then once they're located it
works well to slow down.
The fish will still be shal-
low, especially in stained


water lakes.
Casting will often be most
productive, but if you prefer
trolling or drifting, get your
baits away from the boat to
prevent spooking.
This is even more impor-
tant in clear water.
Start off throwing a
crankbait.
The new Frenzy Flicker
Shad have been very produc-
tive in the past year.
Start with the #5 size: If the
fish are eating it good, go to
the #7.
When you find an area that
has some fish, and when the
aggressive biters have all
been caught on the crankbait,
work a jig/soft bait combina-
tion through the area.
This slower presentation


will take some fish that
wouldn't respond to the
crankbait.
A Mimic Minnow jig head
tipped with a three or four
inch Gulp! Minnow or Power
Minnow will catch those fish.
When that action slows
down, put a leech under a
slip-bobber and let is swim
around in the area a little
while.
That will usually result in a
few more walleyes.
Right now the walleyes are
moving from their spring
areas to their summer areas.
You can intercept that
movement if you keep these
simple ideas in mind.


NFLPA
Continued from 1C
(salary) cap again.
"Once we go through the
cap, why should we agree to it
again?"
Well, maybe because it's one
of the reasons the game has got-
ten as huge as it has, with a par-
ity that has all teams capable of
contending from one year to the
next.
Maybe it helped stop an
owner like the Cowboys Jerry
Jones from buying up all the
highest priced talent and keep-
ing things on a more even play-
ing field for all the owners.'
And maybe because it wasn't


exactly sending your player's to
the food lines.
Besides, with more money
going to the veterans who have
earned it, rather than the draft
picks who may never help their
teams, they'll be even better
off.
Baseball fpr so long had been
America's pastime, it's top dog
when it came to sports passion
and entertainment.
The NFL has overtaken that
spot for a while flow, partly due
to what they did right and all
that baseball did wrong.
From all indications, there
could be another passing of the
pastime in a few years - if the
NFLPA continues down their
brethren's' path.

The Kegel Bowling Center completed another 18 week session of the "Superbowlin' Kids Club" program with the
Marvel Superhero's theme. 37 happy kids graduated with certificates and the newest Marvel & Barbie Bowling balls
and bags. On May 14, the kids enjoyed their season's end pizza party, Rock n' Bowl fun-tournament and all received
their graduate certificates, bowling balls and bowling bags. Bowling balls were hand-picked by each youth including
bright graphics of Spiderman, the Hulk, Ironman, Barbie and more. Coaches Joe Stacy and Sue Merritt were on hand
to also present certificates of "great coaching" to Tyler Shingle and Kyle Gillilan who, as Youth bowlers in the KEGEL
Junior Academy, volunteered to be Kids-Coaches and offer their expertise to the kids in the Superbowlin'Kids Club.
The Coaches are already preparing for the next Superbowlin' Kids Club coming in September of 2008. For information
