Squirrel'


misstep on power line sparked fire

SEBRING - Public servants and good
Samaritans were busy Tuesday afternoon saving
houses and the animals from a brush fire off of
Heron Street near Hammock Road.
One animal died in the fire - and was also the
official cause - Senior Forester Dale Armstrong
said.
"You could call it a squirrel that made a bad
choice," he said.
A squirrel touched a hot power line, he said,
and caught fire.
"That's not the first time it's happened," he
said, recalling an incident in Highlands County


'You could call it a squirrel
that made a bad choice.'

DALE ARMSTRONG
Senior Forester

and one in Texas.
The call came out at 12:17 p.m. and started as
a brush fire in the thickly wooded area off of
Heron street near Hammock Road.
The West Sebring Volunteer Fire Department
was first on the scene, and its first priority to
save the homes.


The fire continued to rage as the Sun 'N Lake,
DeSoto City, and Sebring departments arrived,
joined by the Division of Forestry.
Nearly a dozen homes were in danger, but with
the combined defensive efforts of the four depart-
ments to save them and the division of forestry
containing the fire itself, firefighters became opti-
mistic.
"Engine 18 was working their heart out," to'
save a house, Sebring Fire Department Chief
Brad Batz said just after 1 p.m. "Forestry ringed
the property with two dozers, and we are waiting
to hear if it is contained."

Steak dinner set to help raise money for

Avon Park Fourth of July fireworks show


News-Sun staff report
AVON PARK - The Avon Park Jaycees
will be serving up some juicy steaks as part
of its fireworks fundraising project this year,
but even more interesting to some may be the
fact that the $10 meal ticket will also get the
hungry patron a chance ticket for a $400 gas
card.
Travis Turner, Jaycees president, said
Hicks Oil kicked in the gift card to help boost
,interest in the fundraiser. The winning ticket
:will be drawn at the close of the fundraiser,
but patrons do not need to be present to win.
The fundraiser is set for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
:Saturday, June 7 at Bill Jarrett Ford on U.S.
'27.
This will be the fourth year that Bill Jarrett
;Ford has stepped up to help with the fire-
'works fundraiser. Until the Avon Park


Jaycees got involved, raising money for the
city fireworks over Lake Verona was mostly
left up to resident Wally Randall.
For $10, Turner said patrons will get a 10-
ounce New York strip steak, green beans, a
baked potato, roll and sweet tea ... and, of
course, a chance at that $400 gas card. Meals
can be eaten on site or carried out.
The Jaycees and Randall hope to raise
$3,500 in this fundraiser. "The success of our
fireworks display depends on this communi-
ty," Turner said.
The Avon Park Jaycees are a group of
young business professionals in the Avon
Park area to try to help where they see a
need.
Tickets for the steak dinner fundraiser can
be bought at Laye's Tire, Saunders
Veterinary Clinic or Turner Furniture.

Scores put local


students above


national average

But still below state levels
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY and
TREY CHRISTY
News-Sun staff writers
SEBRING - An important component of
the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test
results has just been released.
The Norm-Refereneed Assessment Test,
while not'officially a part of the FCAT, is a
gauge of how well Florida students are doing
relative to students in other states.
This test neither affects the student's
progress or grade, nor does it impact schools.
Only the FCAT is used to .assign school
grades and is required for students to advance
to the next grade.
The test is given in grades three through 10,
with the News-Sun choosing a cross section for
a comparison.
The Norm-Referenced Assessment test
scores run from 1 to 99, with 50 meaning a stu-
dent did the same or better than half the stu-
dents in the nation.
State-wide, Florida students averaged 60

Rent dispute

turns into

felony arrest
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - A Sebring
man spent his Memorial Day
collecting rent, but did it in
an unusual fashion, according
to sheriff's deputies.
Paul Barnes, 29, of Avon
Park, arrived at a Lagoon
Lane home in Sebring just
after 9 p.m. Monday, arrest
reports said.
The victim said he was in
the living room when a truck
pulled up, but went to the
back of his residence to avoid
contact with Barnes and the
three other men that were
with him.
The men entered his resi-
dence without permission and
grabbed him, forcing him
back into the living room,
wrote Highlands County
Sheriff's Office deputy Elvin
Ancheta in the arrest report.

one of the three
unidentified
men began to
beat the victim
and demand
rent money,
Barnes Ancheta said.
While he was being beaten,
one of the men allegedly
grabbed his cell phone and
told him he wasn't going to
get it back until., he paid the
rent.
The suspect tried to call for
help during the attack, but
was unable to because the
man took his phone, which
was the only one in the resi-
dence, Ancheta said.
Barnes and the other men
allegedly hit the victim in the
head and face with closed
fists and kicked him on his
back and right arm, causing a
small cut above his right eye
and red marks to his back and
arm.
Barnes was charged with
three felonies: burglary with
assault or battery, robbery,
and intimidation or threaten-
ing a victim.
He remains in the
Highlands County Jail, held
without bond according to
www.highlandssheriff.org.

Tom Price, left, brought his bicycle back to Peter Savacool's Bike Shop for a refund, but not
because he was unhappy with the $1,000 Trek 1.5. Rather, Savacool refunded the money to
Price to celebrate the 2,000th bike he's sold in four years.


Sebring Bike Shop celebrates 2,000th


bike sold in 4 years by giving it away


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.comn
SEBRING - It wasn't a
lottery-winning ticket, but
Tom Price struck luck with
his April 29 purchase of a
$1,000 bicycle.
A few weeks after purchas-
ing his fourth bike in four
years, Price received a phone
call from Peter Savacool,
owner, Bike Shop.
Savacool wanted to cele-
brate selling his 2,000th bicy-
cle since buying the shop at
213 U.S. 27 South in Sebring.
So, he gave it way.
Savacool said his book-
keeper helped him determine
which bike was 2,000 through
a routine end-of-month con-
solidation of sales records.
"It's a nice little treat,"
Price said Saturday at a
photo-op during which
Savacool presented him with
a check refunding the pur-
chase price plus taxes.
Price began riding nine
years ago to get back in shape
and quit smoking.
He started on a "Wal-Mart
bike."
A pair of the relatively
cheap - in price and con-
struction - department store


bicycles, Price bought his
next ride from D&S Cycles.
It was a Trek Navigator, a
comfort bike that lasted him
about five years and more
than 10,000 miles.
Now he's riding a Trek 1.5
Road, a skinny-tire bike that
handles better, goes faster and
weighs less.
"My first day on it, I fig-
ured out how responsive it
is," Price said, smiling at the
memory of crashing his new
bike. "It's nice. I wish I would
have upgraded a long time
ago."
Savacool bought the shop
four years, two months ago.
His customer base is most-
ly retirees and Trek's
Navigator series is his top-
selling line.
In fact, Savacool first
thought he was going to give
away (refund) one of -the
Navigators, xhich cost about
$350. But, re-checking" ht"
figures resulted in the more
expensive rebate.
A new model, Trek's Pure,
was designed to replace the
popular Navigator. Pure, he
said, has pedals 12 inches far-
ther forward, allowing a seat


height low enough that riders
can remain seated and safel


Savacool said, explaining
department stores offer gener-
ic bikes that reintroduce
adults to the joys of cycling.
In the long term, however,
ill-fitting bicycles and sub-
standard quality often means
those who want a better ride
come to boutique bike shops.
Though Savacool was on
the check-writing end of
Price's unexpected rebate
'(Price said the family vaca-
tion is coming up), Savacool
has sold a few bikes thanks to
the government's stimulus
checks.
"We're getting a lot of peo-
ple who are grumbling about
the price .F v.-,,." he .kil. not-
.i1 . :'.;it. h, li n ds. Count)
"i;n't qtite h lk.-commute
friendly but it's good for his
business to be think cycling.
"I've had at least four people
tell me that their economic
stimulus are being spent on
bicycles."

After Kevin Roberts retired last year,
the county eliminated the Human Services

The commissioners approved an item
allowing Highlands County Sheriff's
Office to add Avon Park to its consolidat-
ed E-911 licensing agreement for dis-
patching software SmartCops.
Lisa Burley, chief of staff, HCSO, said
the addition of Avon Park has no fiscal
bearing on the county.

AVON PARK - According
to the office for code enforce-
ment, officers for the city
issued 303 written citations to
property owners in the month
of April.
The vast majority of those
citations were issued by code
enforcement head, Captain
Donald Simmons, and his two
officers, Greg Warner and
Marnita English. However, two
police officers also issued cita-
tions, as did the code enforce-
ment secretary, Janet Shields.
Of those 303 citations, 123
have come into compliance and
80 are active cases.
Fines in the amount of
$2,249 were assessed to various
property owners in April, and
$1,081 was collected.
Three properties are sched-
uled for demolition: at 131 N.
Butler Ave., 111 N. Jim Rogers
Ave., and 113 N. Jim Rogers
Ave. Three properties were
posted and cleaned by city
crews due to non-compliance.

Team Eagle Five, based out
of AmeriCorps' - Eastern
Region camp in Perry Point,
Md., is the third group to


progress being made, but says
more education is needed.
"Many, many people think
they have an idea about how
code enforcement works, but
most don't know what we can

instance, a tri-plex or motel
inspections fall under the
responsibility of the fire depart-
ment."
Landlords of smaller rental
properties must have them
inspected by code enforcement
to acquire the residential permit
now required by city ordinance.
Simmons is planning future
seminars and workshops to
help educate the public and,
reminds citizens his office has
an open door policy. Officers '
are pleased to answer ques-
tions.
Simmons said his 'officers
are out and about seven days a .

complaint.
The most common violations
have to do with overgrown
yards and abandoned vehicles.

Watch out, that shadow

you see might be a child

Welcome to summer: Sleeping in; afternoons at the
lake; barbecues in the evening; picnics, softball and
lemonade; hammocks; peacefulness.
And then again ...
Summer also means that school is out and we know
what that means - it's kids, kids, kids, everywhere
we look.
At the mall. At the park. In the yard. In the street.
Running here and getting there.
Suddenly, like swarms of summer mosquitoes,
come children of'every age and size, heedless of the
traffic, focused on their fun.
-It is up to us adults to protect them, sometimes from
themselves.
Being aware is rule number one.
Know children and teenagers are out there, so
expect them.
Remember that they rarely react predictably - who
knows when a little one may dart out from between
two cars, or a young adult suddenly come careening
around a corner on a skateboard or bicycle.
Being patient is rule number two.
There isn't a thing a teenager does today that earli-
er teens haven't already tried - which is another way
of saying we've all probably, at one time or another,
been as risk-taking, care-free and stupid ourselves.
Think about how glad you are to no longer be a
teenager when one takes five minutes to cross the
street in front of you. Or even better, how glad you
are this teenager isn't yours.
The third rule is obey the rules.
Be sure to drive the speed limit all the time, but
especially when cutting through residential neighbor-
hoods.
Before backing up, triple check behind you.
Be sure to signal intentions.
After all, an ounce of prevention, as the goode olde
wives used to say, is worth a pound of cure, and a ton
of regret.
Have a happy, safe summer.

LAMA not a gang
Editor:
There is a new motorcycle
association in town, and I for
one am glad to see them here.
They are known as LAMA,
"Latin American Motorcycle
Association." They have been
featured in the paper with a
picture of the Sebring chapter.
The LAMAS are a worldwide
association of motorcycle rid-
ers made up of family-orient-
ed individuals. In this area
they have been strong sup-
porters of ABATE, (American
Bikers Aimed Toward
Education), and always sup-
porting the Heartland Riders
Association's Run to the
Heartland.
On one radio talk show
someone called in and called
them a gang and asked what
the host thought about them.
The host of the talk show
never corrected the caller
about the gang designation,
however the vice president of
the chapter did. I'm not sure
if this radio talk show host
has an idea of what the differ-
ence is between a gang and an
association. Gangs are made
up of antisocial individuals
who prey on society.
Associations are made up of
individuals who seek to
improve the society they live
in; such are the individuals
who make up the LAMAS.
I had an opportunity to
speak with this talk show host
about this new motorcycle
association; it did not go well.
He showed me the picture the
paper had of them and asked
me, "Would you want to
shake hands with these peo-
ple?"
"Yes," I replied. "In fact I
know many of them and not
only do I shake their hand,
but embrace them with broth-
erly love." I added, "You can-
not judge people by the way
they look, or treat them differ-
ently."
"Yes you can," he replied.
I just shook my head, I
wanted to remind him about
Christ's teachings, and the
writings of His disciples, such
as: (I will just give the Bible
references here, you will
remember them better if you


look them up yourselves), Mt.
7:1-5; John 7:24; Mark 7:21.
The Latin American
Motorcycle Association
recently held a car wash at
AutoZone to raise money so
all of their members can go to
the LAMAS national rally in
North Carolina on July 3-6.
They will hold another car
wash on June 22 at Advance
Auto Parts on U.S. 27 and the
Sebring Parkway. They will
have food also to raise money
for their members. I hope all
my brothers and sisters who
ride will support them. I hope
our community will also sup-
port them. They live, work
and support us in this commu-
nity, let us return the same
sentiment to them.

545 people to blame
Editor:
Politicians are the only
people in the world who cre-
ate problems and then cam-
paign against them. Have you
ever wondered why, if both
the Democrats and the
Republicans are against
deficits, we still have deficits?
Have you ever wondered
why, if all the politicians are
against inflation and high
taxes, we still have inflation
and high taxes?
You and I don't propose a
federal budget. The president
does.
You and I don't have the
Constitutional authority to
vote on appropriations. The
House of Representatives
does.
You and I don't write the
tax code, Congress does.
You and I don't set fiscal
policy, Congress does.
You and I- don't control
monetary policy, the foreign
controlled Federal Reserve
Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435
congressmen, one president
and nine Supreme Court jus-
tices equals 545 human
beings out of the 300 million.
They are directly, legally,
morally and individually
responsible for the domestic
problems that plague this
country.


Those 545 human beings
spend much of their energy
convincing you that what they
did is not their fault. They
cooperate in this common con
regardless of party.
It seems inconceivable to
mo that a nation of 300 mil-
lion cannot replace 545 peo-
ple who stand convicted by
present facts of incompetence
and irresponsibility.
I can't think of a single
domestic problem that is not
traceable directly to those 545
people.
When you fully grasp the
plain truth that 545 people
exercise the power of the fed-
eral government, then it must
follow that what exists is
what they want to exist.
If the tax code is unfair, it's
because they want it unfair.
If the budget is in the red,
it's because they want it in the
red.
If they do not receive
Social Security but are on an
elite retirement plan not avail-
able to the people, it's
because they want it that way.
There is always a solution
to government problems.
Do not let these 545 people
shift the blame to bureaucrats,
whom they hire and whose
jobs they can abolish; or to
lobbyists, whose gifts and
advice they can reject; or to
regulators, to whom they give
the power to regulate and
from whom they can take
back this power.
Above all, do not let them
con you into the belief that
there exists some disembod-
ied mystical forces like the
economy, inflation or politics
that prevent them from doing
what they take an oath to do.
Those 545 people, and they
alone, are responsible.
They, and they alone, have
the power.
They, and they alone,
should be held accountable by
the voters, who are their boss-
es, provided the voters have
the gumption to organize and
vote the 545 failures out of
office. Then to replace them
with honest people who will
follow the constitution.

Remembering and honoring a sister's God-given value of worth


Barbara was my older sis-
ter. We grew up together,
playing and fighting, as typi-
cally siblings do in any home
environment. But, Barbara
was little different than my
other brothers. She was a
"special" sister to me.
Barbara went to school
with my twin brother and me
in the Mother Lode area in
California. We were in the
same classroom. It was an
old-fashioned "one-room
school house," where all
classes from first through
sixth grade were together and
taught by the same teacher.
Barbara went with my par-
ents and our family to Hong
Kong, China, in 1947, imme-
diately after the World War
II. We shared together with
her life among the Chinese as
our parents, Milton and
Louvernia (Vernie) Cowles
were missionaries. She went
to a British school with us.
She was developmentally
challenged and was assigned
to a special class.
When we returned to South


California in 1951, Barbara
continued to have an active
part with our family in going
to church, school and all of
our social gatherings. She
was excited to share with us
as our family helped to build
a new church in our neigh-
borhood.
When Dad accepted a pas-
torate of a Chinese American
Nazarene Church, Barbara
was actively involved with us
in the youth group of the
church. One Sunday after-
noon, Dad baptized Barbara,
my twin brother, Dan and
me, as we confessed our faith
in Jesus Christ, and became
members of the church, in
our early teens.
In June 1957, my twin
brother and I graduated from
high school. Barbara graduat-
ed with us in the same class,
although she received a cer-
tificate of completion of her
work, since she was in a spe-
cial education program at the
school.
Barbara lived at home after
graduation. She helped dad

and mother in the print shop,
with varied mailings of liter-
ature, and continued to par-
ticipate actively in the church
ministries where dad pastored
or was active as a minister.
Later in her adult years,
Mom and Dad were
Barbara's primary care
givers. She was' identified as
mentally retarded and devel-
opmentally disabled, later
diagnosed also with a mental
disorder.
In 1965, Mother became ill
and was diagnosed with can-
cer. Barbara was present with
her during her illness, and
watched her slowly die. She
was also present at Mother's
funeral service and burial
with our family.
Following Mother's death,
Dad was unable to for
Barbara. He arranged for her
to be placed in foster homes
and later group homes.


Barbara lived in a group
home in Redding, Calif.
Throughout the years, she
participated in workshop pro-
grams and maintained an
active life, including going
regularly to church. She
engaged in varied creative
activities with craft classes,
recreational activities, and
winning ribbons and medals
in the Handicapped
Olympics.
Dad took primary responsi-
bility as caregiver after moth-
er died. He died in 1993 and
my older brother and I con-
tinued to maintain contact
with her until she passed
away on May 6 at age 70.
Barbara, was my one and
only, very special sister. I
loved her and only regret is
that I didn't get to spend
extended quality time with
her in the years we have been
separated by 2,500 miles. I
will always cherish and
remember my last conversa-
tion on the phone on May 3.
She cheerfully said, "Hi,
David!" Our conversation


was very brief, but I'm glad
we connected that final time.
Barbara had a cheerful out-
look on life. She enjoyed liv-
ing life, evening with her
challenges especially in
recent years with declining
health. She loved the Lord as
,her personal Savior and loved
to sing songs and appreciat-
ed opportunities to worship
in church when she was able.
Today Barbara is reunited
with Dad and Mom, Mom
Marie, her grandparents and
many of our extended family
- what a blessed reunion in
Heaven!
Thanks, Barbara, for giv-
ing me a first-hand experi-
ence, which gives me per-
spective in valuing and
remembering your life!

they have paid for it with 50

Cuban Americans:

Isn't it time?

It'must be apparent that
after 50 years of the embargo
that you have only succeeded
in inflicting poverty and pain
on several generations of the
poor people of Cuba. The
Castro brothers have never
missed a meal yet the venge-
ful attitude generated by the
failure of the Bay of Pigs
continued to be the core phi-
losophy behind our economic
embargo, which only punish-
es people born long after
1958 and the fall of the
Batista regime.
Representatives Ros-
Lehtnen and the Balart
brothers have labored to
inflict these policies, not
with any real hope of bring-
ing down the Castros, but
rather due to a refusal to rec-
ognize that it is over, that
Cuba would be a happier
place, all 11 million of its
citizens, if the revenge and
punishment were abandoned.
The irrepressible, bouncy,
spirit of the Cuban people,
the "snap" remains, despite
the grinding poverty and the
difficulty of the day to day
life. The music in the Cuban
soul, the warmth of the
Cuban smile, is still very
present in today's Havana.
Meanwhile the Cuban
American has embraced
American citizenship and
participated in this country's
society for 50 years and
prospered. Some years ago I
had a young man of Cuban
descent, who had never been
to .Cuba, but shared the poi-
son of the emigres, discuss
with me his family's house
in the Miramar district of
Havana.,He said he would. .
hope to live there one day,
and when I asked him what
about the people who had
lived there since his family
left in 1960, his answer was
"They can go back to being
servants like they used to
be." If this is the purpose of
the embargo, to turn back the
clocks to the Batista era,
where the exploitation of the
poor was customary and
accepted, then it is time to
recognize that it is over, that
time has long passed.
For better or worse, Cuba
is a different place, populat-
ed by poor but proud people
who accept their hardship,
who smile and sing and
dance. They deserve better. It
is now their Cuba, the
Cuban-American is a
hyphenated American like so
many of the rest of us. Stop
punishing the people of a
country, which you left years
ago. You may share a lan-
guage, customs and even a
history but the reality is
Cuban-Americans are now
Americans, and no longer
Cuban, and old animosities
should not be visited on the
next and succeeding genera-
tions.
The United States has
closed the book on its losses
in Korea and Vietnam. The
veterans of those eras accept
the fact that the world
changes and old animosities
must eventually be put in the
past. We build bridges and
build new understanding. We
now have both diplomatic
relations and normalized
trade with both of those
countries.
It is time for the Cuban-
American community to
come to the same realization
and stop punishing the chil-
dren and grandchildren of.
those who remained, when
you left. It is their Cuba,

FIRE
Continued from 1A
Between 35 and 40 fire-
fighters were on scene at that
time, commanding six brush
trucks, two tankers and two
structural engines.
The Division of Forestry
used the two bulldozers to
cut fire breaks in the woods
to prevent the fire from
spreading, Armstrong said,
because of the issues they
had with thick vegetation
next to the homes.
Once the fire was con-
tained, five acres had been
burned, one car was a total
loss, and two homes had
minor damage.
There was a late afternoon
flare-up, but the fire was
fully contained by 5 p.m.
Before firefighters were on
scene, there was a group of
high schoolers driving up the
street that noticed the fire in
its infancy.
They used hoses, but when
the water was shut off they
started shoveling dirt on the
spreading flames, said Yomar
Torres.
He acted.like it was second
nature.
."I help them out, they help
me out," he said. "God bless-
es everybody."
Torres, along with Iven
Pagan and Edgar De Jesus,
helped rescue animals from a
home whose owner they did-
n't even know.
They boys don't even live
in the immediate area.


CORPS
Continued from 2A
AmeriCorps dedicated to com-
munity service across the
country. NCCC members
range from 18-24 years old,
and they serve a 10-month
stint that consists of four dif-
ferent "spikes," or projects.
During spikes, teams will trav-
el to various areas of the coun-
try and perform a variety of
ccmmunity-service projects,
w ich can include education-
-al environmental, or public
sa ety projects, among others.
IHighlands County is the
Maryland group's second
spike location, coming on the
h eels of the group's first proj-
ect with an educational-assis-
tahce program in Baltimore
where the team turned a
5Q,000-square-foot paint fac-
tory into an educational center.
jIn Highlands County, how-
ever, the work is of a different
nature. The team is, like its
Denver predecessor, working
with Habitat for Humanity to
btild houses throughout the
county. The team is living on
top of Habitat's Home Supply
Store on South Commerce
Avenue, and most of its work
Ss far has been in Lake Placid.
!The team is made up of nine

Eddie Hayes hoses down his neighbor's house Tuesday during a large brush fire on Cardinal
Road in Sebring.


Shannon Purvis of the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office was filing a report
from her patrol car up the
street when she heard a call
for "Signal 25," the first
indication of the fire.
She saw smoke coming
from the area south off Heron
Street, checked it.out and
found herself in the company
of the three young Sebring
High School students.
"All three of those kids did
all they could," she said.
Purvis said she looked
through a window and caught


volunteers, ranging in age
from 18-24. Although the
'team's home base is in
Maryland, team members hail
from all over the country,
including California, Texas,
Oklahoma, Minnesota and
Washington state.
Seth Pierce, 20, is one of
two team members from
Washington. He came to
AmeriCorps by way of Seattle,
having heard about NCCC
through a friend in high
school. His experience so far
has allowed him to travel,
something he had never really
gotten the chance to do before.
"AmeriCorps is full of great
experiences," Pierce said.
"You meet with wonderful
people, it's an awesome pro-
gram."
Aftef his AmeriCorps serv-
ice is over, Pierce wants to
continue his travels by back-
packing - across the United
States, and then Europe. After
that he's planning -to join the
Peace Corps.
As it turns out, the Peace
Corps is a goal for' several
Team Eagle Five members,
including April Muller.
Miller, 23, is originally from
the Chicago area, and she
heard about AmeriCorps while
working with City Year, anoth-
er service organization. She

- the only reason she
checked the house for ani-
mals.
"I opened the garage and
all three were in little cages,"
she said.
The boys helped her grab
the dogs from the smoke-
filled garage and ran. them to
the-safety of Torres' Ford
Explorer, along with two rab-
bh�- and a turtle.
After 20 minutes, the small

then but said she wanted
something "more hands-on,
more physical." AmeriCorps
NCCC fit the bill.
"I get to do stuff I never did
on my own," Muller .said.
"Any interests you have, you
can find anything here. You.
can dive into anything, get
hands-on experience in any-
thing you can think of, and
learn a wide array of skills."
Muller is interested in start-
ing a non-profit once her serv-
ice time is complete,~and she
said working with,.NCCC has
given her the opportunity to
see how non-profits operate
and research how they func-
tion. It's also allowed her to
work closely with a group of
people that has become tight-
knit already, she said.
"It's an opportunity to
spend time with 10 people you
might not have been able to
meet," Muller said. "You learn
conflict resolution and team-
work with any kind of per-
son." -
Each team member is
required to obtain 80 individ-
ual service hours, and that
requirement is met by finding
service opportunities through-
out the area. The team is
always looking for places to

with fluctuating scores from last year.
iResults across the board on the state level
continued to be above average, as did those in
Highlands County, although local students
continued to score lower than their Florida

�Fourth grade math scores fell considerably,
from 77 to 71 across the state, with Highlands

Armstrong said the fire
was bad enough to request a
third bulldozer and a helicop-
ter from Fort Myers, but they
were soon canceled.
"The fire was in a pretty
thick wooded area," he said.
"First looking at it, we
weren't sure what it would
take, but our two tractors
were able to knock it down."
Preliminary evacuation
plans were in place, but only

came in eighth-grade math, where the county
scored a 71.
This still fell three points short of the state
average of 74.
The lowest score in the county was in 10th
grade math, only slightly above the national
average, at 55.
Across Florida, the score fell from a 67 in
2007 to this year's 63, putting local students
eight points below the average state student.
The largest deficit between the state and the
county also showed up in grade 10.
Local 10th grade students scored a 61 in
reading compared to 71 across Florida.
This is on the heels of an 11-point jump
from 2007 to 2008 for Florida students, but
Highlands County couldn't keep up.


DILLEY
Continued from 1A
larger planes, Federal
Aviation Administration safe-
ty zones overlap onto Dilley's
property and the county com-
missioners and Dilley have
been at a continual impasse
on re-zoning.
About 14 acres in the
southeast portion of Dilley's
parcel are under what the
FAA calls a runway protection
zone, an area beyond the run-
way that is most at risk during
take off.
The issue for commission-
ers is public safety and
Dilley's concern is retaining
(or, restoring) his land's
value.
MacBeth said the FAA
safety zones, which stem from
an agency circular, are regula-
tions for airport owners but
only guidelines for the enti-
ties surrounding an airport.
That means if the Avon
Park Executive Airport were
to build, it would be restricted
to certain height restrictions
and facility types.
But, Dilley and others are
only subject to local land use
ordinances.
Dilley came before the
commissioners with a modi-
fied re-zone proposal.
He removed from his
request the 14 acres affected
by the runway protection
zone, essentially limiting the
affected re-zone property to
where he can build without
encroaching upon FAA safety
concerns.
Development Services
Director Jim Polatty said the
county is willing to compen-
sate Dilley with increased
density in the unaffected 43
acres if he commits to a deed


restriction preventing certain
construction (churches,
offices and schools, for exam-
ple) in the future.
"They want an increase in
density without giving up any
development potential,"
MacBeth said of Dilley's
apparent refusal to include a
deed restriction or covenant.
Warrick "Bud" Furr,
Dilley's lawyer, said Dilley
was willing to forego con-
struction projects that caused
people to congregate.
However, until just before
requesting a continuance,
Furr appeared unwilling to
extend the commitment to
future owners.
He said Dilley couldn't win
a re-zone with the land in
question included and, now
that they've removed the 14
acres, they were being asked
for more concessions.
"There's a basic issue of
fairness here," Furr said. "We
lose anyway we go."
Furr said he was
"ambushed" Tuesday with a
letter from Avon Park offi-
cials who wanted an easement
over his land.
He asked for time to dis-
cuss the easement with Avon
Park, which was represented
by Deputy Mayor George
Hall and City Manager Sarah
Adelt.
The hearing will resume
June 24 in the commission
boardroom.
Furr said Dilley wants to
provide "reasonable protec-
tion" to the city but warned he
could petition the FAA to shut
down Avon Park's airport for
its alleged failure to properly
acquire Dilley's land when it
expanded its runway, limiting
best use of the property.

Summer Well Done


Outdoor Entertaining Made Easy


FAMILY FEATURES
Summer is the perfect time to break
out of the kitchen and take enter-
taining outside. Burgers and dogs
are quick and tasty, but it's easy -
and affordable - to turn a basic
cookout into alfresco fun. Here are
some things you can do:

Choose the right tools. Charcoal
grills have their place on any patio; com-
plement the traditional kettle with a natural
gas or propane model. Today's grills fea-
ture more surface area, multiple burners,
searing chambers, rotisserie functions and
outdoor ovens. Some even have accent
lighting for controls and to illuminate the
food so there is less risk of over- or under-
cooking. You don't have to spend a fortune
on an outdoor kitchen remodel. There are a
range of grill choices and some private-
label brands that perform like the best, but
for less.


Liven up the menu. If you're tired of
serving the same old thing, it's.time to try
something new. Wake up your taste buds
with bold flavors like jalapefio or wasabi.
Cook veggies on the grill - you'll be
amazed at the added depth of flavor.
Or try a whole new main dish like salmon
burgers. Salmon is loaded with flavor and
heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, so you
get great taste that's actually good for you.
Set the scene. Dress up the table with a
pretty tablecloth and inexpensive table
accessories. Reusable melamine plates add
color and reduce waste. Set out some can-
dles in jars and a potted plant as a center-
piece, and your backyard is suddenly a
bistro.

Find more outdoor entertaining tips, a new
grill and accessories, and fresh ingredients for
a family picnic or an all-out outdoor soir6e by
visiting Sam's Club or samsclub.com.


Tips on
Grilling Corn
Cooking corn on the BBQ
adds a delightful smoky fla-
vor to one of summer's
great treats. There are basically
two methods of cooking corn on
the grill; either the husk is left on
to protect the corn, or the cob is
stripped and wrapped in heavy-
duty foil. Some flavoring agents
(like herbs and flavored butters ,or.
oils) are typically applied to the
corn before the wrapping is
sealed around it. In both
approaches, grill the corn over
medium neat for 12 to 18 min-
utes, turning several times.
To cook corn in the husk, peel
husks back (leaving attached at


eate an outdoor kitchen with great-
ue grills, such as the Sam's Club
mber's Mark Grill for $997.

the stem); strip off the silk; apply
a light rub of butter, salt and pep-
per; then pull the husk back up
over the cob and tie with kitchen
twine to close. Soak in .cool water
15 to 20 minutes before putting
on the grill.
To prepare using the foil
method, clean each ear of silk and
husk; spread with softened butter
flavored with something zippy like
lime juice and ground cumin or
chili powder; and wrap each ear in
heavy-duty fqil, well sealed at
both ends.
Grilled corn is greatalongside
any grilled supper, or you can
slice the kernels offthe cob and
add them to your favorite fruit or
tomato salsa for a unique side
dish.


Salmon Burger
Very easy, with a hint of Asian flavors, this is one
great burger.
Makes 8 (1/4-pound) burgers
Spicy Mayonnaise
Blend 1/2 cup mayo with 1/2 teaspoon wasabi
paste
or 1 minced jalapeiio chile
Salmon Burger
2 pounds skinless, boneless salmon, cut
into 1-inch pieces
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons grated ginger
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Lettuce
Toasted Sourdough roll or shepherd's
bread
Prepare Spicy Mayonnaise and refrigerate.
Grind salmon pieces in a food processor by puls-
ing until they are a small chop consistency.
In a bowl, mix salmon with mayonnaise, green
onion, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, soy sauce and
pepper.. Chill for 1 to 2 hours.
Form into patties and cook on hot, clean grill (or
in a hot, non-stick skillet) about 3 minutes per side
until a crispy crust forms.
Serve on roll with lettuce leaves and Spicy
Mayonnaise.


The caps are in the air.


The icing is on the cake.

SEBRING RECREATION CLUB
Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING - Larry and
Virginia Stump donated a
new set of discs and a disc
holder to John Bushee at the
club. John will put this set to
good use as needed. Larry
made all the disc holders
that the club has had in the
past years.
Ed Williams is home from
his surgery. Ada Williams
had her surgery. It was nice
to have a new member,
Charlotte Sanders, shoot
shuffleboard with us
Monday.
A few things said about
shuffleboard: "Bring grand-
children over to play. Enlist
the help of friends and fami-
ly. Exercising is a great way
to socialize and it makes it
more fun to do it together.
Doing it as a family unit
would be very encouraging.
I just love the competition. I
love playing the sport and I
love meeting new people
and seeing my old friends at
different tournaments. It's
just a joy to do. The quality
of life has been wonderful
because of the sport."
Good shooters execute
good shots, but good players
execute good plays. There is
a tremendous difference
between a "shot" and a
"play." "Shufflers" make
shots. A "shot" is simply
pushing your cue disc down
the court. It is only that - a
"shot." A "play," on the
other hand, is a series of
"shots." A "play" is
designed to accomplish a
specific goal. A "play" is
playing "real shuffleboard."
Learn the "plays" and use
them.'
Table tennis is at 4 p.m.
Tuesday and again on Friday
at 4 p.m. also. We need
more ladies to show the men
how table tennis should be
played. Bring a friend and
enjoy.-this game. ,with ,us.
._Let's get together and
enlarge the number of the
table tennis group.
Bridge is also Tuesdays
and Fridays at 12:30 p.m.
Let's try for two more tables
in the next three weeks. The
only way this will happen is
if you bring a. friend.
Sebring has not gone north
for the summer, but many of
us are still active. We should
be growing as a club and
giving thanks for all that we
have in the Sebring area. We
have not let everyone in on
the fine things we do in the
club even in the summer.
Did you make the tourna-
ment May 15 at Sebring? Do
you plan on May 29 at Avon
Park? Entry fee is only $5,
bring your lunch and be at

Barbara Kelleher

They made the coffee and
provided everyone with deli-
cious doughnuts to celebrate
in honor of their 48th wed-
ding anniversary. Our emcee
was Louise Smith. Before
getting started Joe Shannon
asked if he could read an
article that was printed in
the Smithsonian magazine,
which brought out how far
we have progressed in the
last 300 years. It was very
interesting.
Louise then introduced
our park manager, George
Susco. He was happy to
report that the park owner
has purchased two new
stoves for the kitchen area.
He also told the residents
that the pools were inspect-
ed by a state environmental
health employee, who stated
they were very clean but
reminded George' to tell all
residents they should shower
before going into the pool
and shower to wash off pool
chemicals when leaving. He
told George it is a state law.
We had no people leaving
to return north at this time,
no guests or new residents.
Carol Noel reported Lloyd
Buero is now home follow-
ing his surgery, Doug
Peterson is having surgery
on his foot, Larry Plate has
been ill and Ronnie
Pritchett. She has get well
sheets on the table for all to
sign.

emony for Memorial Day.
They had a military flag
raising program at 9 a.m.
this past Monday. The
Missing in Action flag was
raised along with the

Day, per Tony Barriga's sug-
gestion. That afternoon, the
military committee along
with the special events com-
mittee served hamburgers
and hot dogs along with the
trimmings and beverage for
$2, also providing table set-
tings. Everyone brought a
dish to share.
Joy Dean reminded all of
her captains of the hurricane
preparedness committee to
please attend the meeting
Tuesday at 3 p.m., at the
clubhouse. Will Noel
announced that the
Mustangs will have men's
lunch out at Jaxson
Restaurant in Lake Placid.
Louise asked Virginia to
play the piano for all to sing
Happy Birthday to all resi-
dents celebrating their birth-
day the week of July 18-24.
Lena Chapman was with us
to hear everyone sing. Next
the anniversaries we have
Luann and Jim Steffen's and

ment on the piano.

eon for 40 people was held

Andy and Rita Anderson
spent two weeks in
Indianapolis with family and
friends. Andy was recog-
nized at an elementary
school heI taught and
coached by some of his for-
mer students and faculty. It
was such a nice occasion we
will both treasure. Robert
and Arlene Clouston took a
two-week vacation by taking
an airplane to Illinois and
stayed with their daughter
Connie and son-in-law

enjoyed seeing family and
friends. The highlight of

ily before returning to

Avon Park Dixie Youth Majors



It's Phillies, Braves in Avon Park City Finals


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK - Round one
of the Avon Park Dixie Youth
Majors City Championships
are over, and just two teams
are left standing.
The Bagwell Bombers
Phillies remained undefeated
when they faced-off against
the Lay's Tire Service Royals
in game one Tuesday Phi
night at Durrah Martin
'Field.
.Forcing the issue 1
,early, the Phillies Ro
'drove in 10 runs in the
firstt two innings of
pl.,., including a three-
run homer by Tray
Perry.
; The scrappy Royals were
'faced with an uphill struggle
due to an early injury when
right fielder Stephen Waldron
iwas hit on the thumb while
batting in the second inning.
Waldron took his walk, but
;was forced to leave the game,
:and that left the Royals with
just eight players.
Royals' left fielder Bobby
Pough and center fielder.
Austin Stadie were forced to


cover the entire outfield until
Waldron returned two innings
later in spite of a possible
broke right thumb.
"They needed him back out
there," said head coach and
father Perry "Bubba"
Waldron.
"And he wanted to go back
in, we are' pretty sure it's

broke, but he could
still catch a fly and flip
it with his glove."
"I got hit in the eye
once before, and this
hurts a lot more," said
young Waldron
"This is the third
time we had to play the
Phillies with just eight


players," said the senior
Waldron. "So we knew we
could do it, we. just had to
shift some of our outfielders
around at the right times."'
Despite the lack of a player,
the Royals would battle their
way back in the fifth inning
picking up eight. and' giving
,the Phillies a run for their
money.
"They were really coming
back strong, but I knew they
could not catch us," said


'I was confident
we could win, but
it got close there
at the end.'

KYLE KELLEY

Phillies third baseman Norris
Gordon.
,The Phillies would get the
go ahead and defeat the
Royals 19-8.
Meanwhile, on field two,
the Bill Jarrett Braves would
hold off the Long's Air
Conditioning Reds in a last
inning shootout to. win 9-8
and insure their place in the
final championship game.
"I was confident we could
win, but it was close there at
the end," said Kyle Kelley,
the Braves starting pitcher.
"I knew I had to throw
strike outs, but I was getting a
little tired near the end,"
added Kelley.
The Reds struck the first

Replay debate could end


the in-your-face debates


I had to re-think my
stance on instant replay in
baseball, if just for a
moment.
With four home run-
non-home run calls blown
last week - the three I
mentioned in my last col-
umn about it, and yet
another in the Cubs-Pirates
game Sunday - there were
riots in the streets and
angry villagers storming
the gates, with torches,
demanding that baseball
bring instant replay into
the game.
Amid that clamor, I was
as adamant as anyone in
saying that calls like this
need to be made sure of -
and didn't it seem the
work of the baseball gods
that so many blatantly
blown calls were happen-
ing with such rapidity?
But Chicago Tribune
columnist Rick Morrissey
gave me a moment of
pause in his recent column
about what bringing replay
in could eventually do, if
not brought in with the
right guidelines.
One of the greatest
aspects of the game is the
classic manager-umpire
argument.
'Think back to the days
of Earl Weaver, Billy
Martin and my personal
favorite, Herman Franks as
well as their modern-day
contemporaries such as
Ozzie Guillen, Lou
Piniella and Tony LaRussa.
When I first got hooked
on baseball, and tragically,
the Cubs, in my fresh-
faced youth, Herman
Franks was their manager.
A grizzled baseball lifer,
Franks had a short fuse
with the umps and put on
some of the best shows
when arguing a call.
I still say that much of
the dirt kicking, hat throw-
ing, nose-to-nose tirades
that made Weaver famous
were done at the same
time, if not earlier, by
Franks.
So entertaining were his
outbursts, my mom would
come running into the fam-
ily room whenever Jack
Brickhouse would exclaim,
"Uh oh, there goes Franks
onto the field to argue the
call."


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne


And despite the enter-
tainment value of it, seeing
two grown men in a
screaming match, red-
faced and dodging each
other's spittle, the inspira-
tional benefit to a team
cannot be overlooked.
How often has a manag-
er intentionally blown a
gasket over a call (often
times a call that really
wasn't that debatable) and
get kicked out of the game
to serve as a, spark to his
team?
Crash Davis tried it as
the emotional leader of the
Durham Bulls, but that
team hadn't found itself
yet.
Piniella did it in early
June last year, as the Cubs
were floundering.
A call that was actually
pretty clearly correct sent
Lou into a tizzy that even-
tually got him ejected, but
in the meantime had the
Wrigley faithful rocking
the house.
They didn't win that
game, dropping it 5-3 to
the Braves, but they did
win five of their next six
and went on to become NL
Central champs.
If baseball isn't careful
about how they institute
instant replay, it could take
that entertainment and
inspiration away from the
game.
For the cases that
brought about the discus-
sion, home run calls in
play or out of the park, fair
or foul, maybe even fan
interference - but leave it
at that.
Those are the ones that
are most difficult for
umpires anyway, taking
place hundreds of feet

HISTORY LESSON

10 YEARS AGO
May 26, 1998: Despite getting touched up for two runs in the first inning, Bruce Beumel lead his
Lions team to an 11-5 win over Barnett Bank in DixieYouth Majors action. Aaron Eures two-run double
plated Daniel Patrick and Daniel Rodriguez in the opening frame, but Beumel struck out the next three
batters and didn't give up another hit in his four innings of work.The Lions offenses, meanwhile, got on
track with Matt Mclntyre,Tony Cooper and Beumel picking up an RBI and Richard Hernandez two in a
five-run fourth. McIntyre then hit an inside-the park home run in the fifth. Barnett came back to narrow
the lead with Beumel off the mound, butTommy Emerson's two-run single in the sixth ended the drama.
