Local drivers not running o

of gas like those elsewhere


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuiffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Recent news reports coming out of the
Tampa area and in Pennsylvania tell of an increase in
drivers running out of gas on the road after just par-
tially filling their tanks instead of filling up due to
high gas prices.
Here in Highlands County no one is seeing the
same sort of problem.
In fact, Brenda Smith, assistant manager of the
Tallahassee AAA office, says the Florida trend is
just the opposite. --
"Calls for fuel aren't even percent of
our total number of road assistance calls,"
she said in a telephone interview. "It
seems the situation in the northeast
is an anomaly restricted to the
area, and not related to the high
cost of gasoline."
Barry Bittner, operations manag-
er of the Cross Country automotive
services call center in Sebring,
agreed. He said he hadn't seen an
increase in calls for fuel. Then he
added, "I haven't seen a decrease in
driving either."
Two local towing companies, Avon
Towing and Rodney's Towing, also
report business as usual, without a spike in
requests for gasoline.
That doesn't mean, however, people are
buying gasoline as they used to. The Raceway
station in Avon Park has seen a significant rise
in sales of only $5-7, for example.
Attendants at Taylor's BP-Southgate station
see the same pattern, saying they are seeing cus-
tomers stopping by more often because they are
spending less.
"It beats the purpose actually," said one.


ut


/A

jr 1. Fill up in the morning
The reasoning is that fluids are
denser at lower temperatures, there-
fore you get more gas molecules in
your tank before the temperatures
rise during the day. The fact is that
with gas being stored in under-
ground tanks, there is very little tem-
perature variation during the day,
according to Consumer Reports.

2. Get a new air filter
Most modern engines automatically
adjust the mixture of fuel and air
according to the air supply to the
engine, so while it's better to have a
clean air filter, it's not going to save
you any gas.

3. Buy premium gas
Just because your owner's man-
ual recommends premium fuel
doesn't mean it's a must.
Modern engines will detect
the difference in octane and
automatically adjust the
spark plug timing to com-
pensate. That may mean
a little less horsepower,
but not better mileage.

S 4. Pump up your tires
The myth says that more air pres-
sure in your tires means less surface
area in contact with the road and
save gas. While under-inflated tires
do decrease gas mileage, according


Gas Myths


Exposed


to Consumer Reports, having over-
inflated tires is just plain dangerous
and could lead to a crash. Keep your
tires properly inflated, but not too
full.

5. Turn off the air conditioner
That may have been true years ago,
but today's AC units are very effi-
cient and don't use nearly as much
engine power as they once did.
Driving around town without the AC
on will save you one mile per gallon,
according to one study, and most
studies have shown little difference
in fuel economy between driving
with the windows down at high
speeds (which increases drag) or
running the AC. Here in Florida, it's
probably worth the extra pennies to
avoid sitting in a puddle of sweat.

6. Let you car idle
This myth is also one that may have
been true back in the day, but just
doesn't apply to today's technology.
Fuel injection means cars don't use a
big shot of gas to start up like they
did with carburetors, which means
you're actually saving gas by turning
the car off if you are going to idle for
more than a minute or two.

Suspect reportedly said
he wanted to cut woman
and 'let her blood run'
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID A man
was arrested on charges of
attempted murder after he
allegedly chased a group of
women and children around
the Sun 'N Lakes South subdi-
vision with a large kitchen
knife.
Jorge- Severiano-Morales,
24, of Lake Placid, wanted, to
"cut (the victim) and let her
blood run," according to the
arrest report by Deputy Jamie
Davidson.
The victim did not know
Severiano-Morales, but recog-
nized him from the community.
On Monday morning,
Severiano-Morales allegedly
broke into the victim's house
but she was not there.
He then went to a residence
on Fascination Drive, the home
of an acquaintance of the vic-


tim.
Severiano-Morales had a
large kitchen knife in his hand
and asked the acquaintance if
the victim was there, telling
her that he was looking for her
because he was going to kill
her, Davidson said.
The acquaintance told
Severiano-Morales the victim
was not there and he left.
She then called the victim
and warned her not to go hpme,
tellirig her to come to her
house instead.
An hour later, Severiano-
Morales returned to the resi-
dence but the two women saw
him and locked the doors.
Severiano-Morales found a
window and used it to enter the
house, Davidson said.
The two women, with two 1-
year-old children, fled from the
residence with Severiano-
Morales allegedly chasing
after them with the large knife.
He caught up to the women
after chasing them for 90 yards

Area hotels trying to save water

CHAMP program has five local businesses involved


By MATT MURPHY
iatt.mnrphy@newssun.com
SEBRING With Florida still under
drought conditions, businesses every-
where are looking for ways to cut water
consumption. And few businesses con-
sume as much water as hotels.
That's why the Southwest Florida
Water Management District instituted
Water CHAMP (the Conservation Hotel
and Motel Program) in 2002, and that's
also why it expanded the program to all
16 counties in the district in 2006.
Since then a total of 357 hotels have


signed on, including five in Highlands
County: Sebring's Lakeside Golf Resort,
the Spring Lake Golf Resort, Avon Park's
Jacaranda Hotel and Reed's Motel, and
the Quality Inn and Conference Center in
Sebring.
Quality Inn owner Chad Hankin said
his hotel decided to become more envi-
ronmentally-conscious even before learn-
ing about Water CHAMP, but said the
program "dovetailed nicely" into what
the hotel was already trying to do.

AVON PARK Now that
summer has officially started
for the youngsters of
Highlands County, Wally
Randall, executive director of
the Boys & Girls Club, wants
to be sure local families are
aware of the organi-
zation as a resource.
The club, Randall
said, is not simply a
babysitting service.
Instead, academics

the program, with
students having to

Even more impor- Of
tant, Randall said, is
the quality of the comn
staff, its training, and
its focus on mentor- WA

"There is no Club,
yelling at the Boys &
Girls Club," he said. "If a stu-
dent needs attention we inter-
cede and handle it one on

He added that the club's
most important mission is to
build character.
There is, for example, a

and lunch.
Regular, field trips are
being planned, although those
costs will be extra.
Randall said the club is try-
ing to raise more scholarship
money. There is no shortage
of children.
"For us to survive we must
have the support of the com-
munity," he said, adding that
the club did more than help
individual children.
In fact, it was by helping
individual children,
that the club helped
the community in a
larger way.

Sebring and Avon
Park clubs take in an average
of 175 children daily. During
the summer Randall expects
to average 75 children at each
site.
Interest is growing in both
Lake Placid and Spring Lake
for clubs to be founded there.
While Randall agreed each

emphasized the communities
would have to show practical-
support before anything could

Sebring man jailed after allegedly threatening family with gun


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING An argument
'between an intoxicated father and his
wife led to numerous charges to the
inebriated man after he threatened
both his wife and children, according
to a the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office.
Jesus Grimaldo, 44, of Sebring,
allegedly started the argument with


his wife in an upstairs bedroom,
which turned physical when he
grabbed her by the shirt and began to,
dr.g her tfriomi the room.
Grimaldo's 14-year-old son told
him to stop hurting his mother, but
Grimaldo instead responded with
more anger, this time directed at his
son in the form of a slap to the boy's
cheek, reports said.
The parents and 14-year-old son


continued to argue as
Grimaldo's other son.
1'8. entered the verbal
flip altercation.
Grabbing a .44 cal-
iber revolver,
Grimaldo said
Grimaldo nobody was allowed
to leave or he would
shoot them, the report by Sheriff's
Deputy Steven New said.


Grimaldo's two daughters, 15 and
9. :climbed through an upstairs win-
dow onto the roof, then jumped off of
the roof to safety, at their mother's
request.
The two sons and wife eventually
talked Grimaldo into calming down.
When he went to take a shower the
remaining three victims left the house
and called police.Officials from the
HCSO arrived and saw Grimaldo


through a door at the back of the
house that was left open. He was
ordered to get on the ground but
refused, so officers shot him with a
Taser and took him into custody, New
said.
He was charged with two counts of
kidnapping, three counts of child cru-
elty, kidnapping a minor, and one
count of resisting arrest with vio-
lence. Bail was set at $136,000.


Is that the cat bird seat? Bobcat finds

perch atop PRECO power pole near Ona


Special to the News-Sun
ONA Over the years, Peace River
Electric Cooperative's line personnel have
encountered a variety of birds and animals on
poles and power lines however, none quite
like this. Recently, a PRECO line technician
reported a "cat" on top of a pole but it was-
n't your typical house cat, it was a big cat.
While on duty and travelling near the town
of Ona, Eddie Bailey spotted a Florida bobcat
(lynx rufus floridanus) perched on the cross
arm of a PRECO pole. Bobcats, normally shy
and nocturnal, are found throughout most of
the United States and Mexico. '
In order to minimize the danger to the big
cat and allow him to get down safely, the elec-
trical equipment around him was de-ener-
gized. Realizing the bobcat would not descend
the pole with people nearby, workers left the
scene. Returning to the location a short while
later, they discovered the animal had disap-
peared unharmed.
PRECO urges everyone to avoid power
lines and electrical equipment. Never attempt
to rescue an animal or retrieve an object from
power lines or electrical equipment, but rather
report it by calling Peace River Electric toll

Hankin said. "You can't pick
up a newspaper or watch TV
without hearing about compa-
nies going green. We wanted
to be leaders."
Guests staying at the
Quality Inn are informed of
the hotel's participation in
Water CHAMP thanks to a set
of materials placed in each
room. A pillow card sits on
each bed, informing guests
staying for more than one
night that they can choose to
have their bed linens washed
every three days instead of
daily. Hanging on the bath-
room door is a sign urging
guests to reuse their bath tow-
els, and giving them the
option of hanging them back
up (where they'll be reused)
or throwing them on the floor
(where they'll be washed).
Hankin said he has gotten
"great responses" from hotel
guests about the program, and
said they especially like the
program's "proactive,"
optional approach. Although
exact statistics aren't being
kept, Hankin said "more than
half" of the hotel's guests
have participated in the pro-
gram..
"More have recently," he


said. "With gas prices as high
as they are, a lot of folks
weren't as environmentally
conscious before, but they're
more receptive today."
According to SWFWMD,
hotels participating in Water
CHAMP saved 270 million
gallons of water in 2006,
along with 25 percent on
laundry costs. Water CHAMP
Coordinator Robin Grantham
said the program is making a
major difference.
"Water CHAMP is having a
huge impact within the dis-
trict," Grantham said. "We
have over 61 percent of the
available hotel rooms in the
district signed up. All hotels
participating are excited on
numerous levels."
The district recently insti-
tuted a second, similar pro-
gram, known as Water PRO
(Program for Restaurant
Outreach), which is designed
to inform restaurants of
water-saving techniques. The
Quality Inn's Trax Restaurant
will implement Water PRO in
June, becoming one in seven
district restaurants (and the
only one in Highlands
County) to sign up so far.
Patrons of the restaurant will
have the opportunity to read
about the program thanks to
coasters and table tents placed
on the tables that will explain


Water PRO in more detail.
With his hotel already par-
ticipating in Water PRO and
Water CHAMP, Hankin said
the Quality Inn is continually
looking for ways to become
more energy-efficient. The
hotel is in the process of
installing energy-efficient
thermostats in each room,
installing compact fluorescent
light bulbs throughout the
facility, and installing
motion-sensitive lighting fix-
tures throughout the hotel to
save energy costs. Although
these changes are costly,
Hankin said they are invest-
ments that will ultimately. be
worth the costs.
"Socially, the payoff is
immediate," Hankin said.
"We're doing everything
through green-colored glass-
es. We're a young company
and our employees are all
local residents who care about
the environment, the commu-
nity, and our natural
resources. We all want to do
our part."
Both water-saving pro-
grams are completely free for
hotels and restaurants. More
information about each pro-
gram, including how to sign
up and a list of participating
hotels and restaurants, can be
found online at

1178 Lakeview Drive Sunday. Kaitlyn was 5 when she was taken away suddenly in a trag-
ic accident two days before Christmas in 2003. Her family hopes the garden, which is
open to the public, brings as much joy and peace to others as Kaitlyn did to them. Two of
her older sisters, Molly (left) and Emily, are directly behind Portiz in the procession.

The 30-year-old told the
13-year-old to call the police
so she went into the laundry
room to avoid the noise of the
argument, Bueford said.
Pompa saw the 13-year-old
with the phone and started
moving towards her.
The 30-year-old put herself
between Pompa and the
minor, but Pompa grabbed the
minor by the hair and hit her
in the face, knocking her to
the ground, Bueford said.
Officers arrived shortly
after the frantic call was
made, and took Pompa into
custody.


Bueford recalled hearing a
loud thud and a woman
screaming, he said.
He ran into the house and
saw the three women "crying
and cowering" in the rear
hallway of the house, he said.
Pompa was ordered to
place his hands above his
head but did not comply, even
after several commands in
English and Spanish.
Bueford was able to put a
wrist lock on Pompa one arm
at a time and handcuff him.
He unholstered his Taser, but
did not have to use it.
Pompa remained an active
inmate in the Highlands
County Jail late Tuesday.

Serving Highlands County since 1927

Semper paratus -


always prepared

Anyone who lived through the hurricane season of
2004 here in Highlands County understands the need
to be prepared for nature's fury.
Three major storms rolling right over our heads in
about six weeks that year drove the point home.
There were days without electricity, homes without
roofs, businesses literally blown away.
Standing in lines for ice we all vowed we would
never be caught short again.
But that was then and this is now two quiet
storm seasons since and we're becoming complacent,
counting on nature's mercy if we think about hurri-
canes at all.
True, we are distracted with so much else on our
minds war, peace, recession, food prices, gasoline
prices, health costs. Who has the time, or the money,
to think ahead when we're so busy just keeping up?
But this is one of those times when we have to be
focused as individuals, families and businesses
and as a whole community.
It is enlightened self-interest to prepare for major
storms.
Yet experts in emergency management have
expressed concern that we don't seem to be preparing
for the hurricane season this year.
Part of the problem is simply human nature why
prepare for tomorrow when you have problems to
deal with today.
Part of the problem has to do with over-stressed
budgets.
It is a shame that we can no longer afford the tax-
free period that encouraged preparation, but that is a
discussion for another day.
The truth is, financially comfortable or not, after a
major storm it takes about three days for emergency
teams to get up and rolling in large numbers, and
some more isolated areas might have to wait longer
for help.
That means each household needs to be able to be
self-sufficient for at least that long, which is why it is
so important to have enough food, water and medica-
tions on hand, and to choose edible items that can be
eaten cold, straight from the can.
There is still enough time over the next six to eight
weeks of regular grocery shopping to spread out buy-
ing the extra cans of ravioli, tuna fish and three bean
salad, the containers of bottled water and the blister
packs of batteries so that by the peak of the season the
necessary supplies are on hand.
While stocking the pantry and medicine cabinet,
take the time to develop a back-up plan of action,
especially if you live in vulnerable housing or have
pets.
Sure we can hope for another year of quiet weather.
We can all ride the.odds. And true, the odds are in our
favor.
But to hope for the best to the point of doing noth-
ing to prepare for the worst, is only asking for trou-
ble.
Remember that many recent hurricanes have had a
tremendous reach, some enveloping almost the entire
state at one time.
Which is another way of saying you can run from a
hurricane, but you can't hide.

Career Academy will
help many students
Editor:
The School Board of
Highlands County recently
gave the "go ahead" to begin
a Secondary Education Career
Academy. The academy will
be for 11th- and 12th-grade
students. It will be located on
the South Florida Community
College Campus. Students
will spend a half day studying
their academic subjects. The
remainder of the day they
will learn a technical/voca-
tional skill.
By successfully complet-
ing their program at the acad-
emy, students will graduate
with competence in academic
work and acquired a salable
skill. This will allow a stu-
dent to enter the work force
and/or continue their studies
at the college.
A fringe benefit of housing
the Career Academy at the
community college is the
opening of needed classrooms
at the high school.
Congratulations to
Superintendent of Schools
Wally Cox, South Florida
Community College President
Dr. Norman Stephens and the
members of the Highlands
County School Board. Over
the next years, our students
and our community will reap
many benefits from the
Career Academy.

Why are there no
straight answers?
Editor:
I read, with interest, the
article by James J. Dean
regarding the channel
between Little Lake Jackson
and Lake Jackson. Also, the
article about the canal
cleanup at Lake Istokpoga.
Both of our local newspa-
pers should interview resi-
dents of Erin Park, who live
on the three canals to Little
Lake Jackson and also take
pictures of the three canals,
as two of them are literally
"seas of grass!" We have lit-
tle water in the middle canal
and in the past few weeks, a
lot of the fish have died and
we've gotten flocks of buz-
zards on the bank feeding on
the dead fish.
We haven't had our boats
or pontoons out on either lake
for almost two years. A lot of
the boats and pontoons are
sitting high and dry. It would
cost each owner around $600
to have a crane come in and
remove them. We have con-
tacted local county officials
several times, but all we get
are words!
Something needs to be
done! The residents of Erin
Park have contributed twice
to clean out the mouth of the
canals to Little Lake Jackson,
but were restricted by depth
and width requirements, so it
filled back in weeks later. If

there are monies to clean out
the canal to Lake Istokpoga
there should be funds to clean
out under the bridge between
Little Lake Jackson and Lake
Jackson or at the very least,
to open the mouth of the
canals to Little Lake Jackson?
Why can't James J. Dean
get straight answers from the
county or state agencies?
Perhaps we should take this
matter to a higher level to get
some action!

Property taxes and
the county budget
Editor:
The taxable value of
Highlands County property
declined due to the housing
crisis and the economic slow-
down.
In January voters passed
Amendment One. This dou-
bled the homestead exemp-
tion providing some small
relief after years of suffering
sky high property taxes. This
will result in a drop in rev-
enue to the county.
Big deal. The county cof-
fers were overflowing with
money during the housing
boom that far exceeded
growth and inflation. Not
once did our county govern-
ment attempt to help
beleaguered taxpayers by tying
revenue growth to population
growth. Nor did they index it
to inflation.
Now the crying from the
county will start. We don't
have enough money. We need
to raise the millage rate.
I don't want to hear it.
Most residents in the county
are likely in the same boat I
am. We just pay more for
everything but no pay raises
or even pay cuts so everyone
just tightens their belts. Cut
non-essentials out of our fam-
ily budget and make hard
financial choices. Pay more
for gasoline and more for
gasoline and even more still.
Unfortunately, we can't
vote to increase our revenue
so we just deal with it. It is
high time Highlands County


did the same.

Meeting human needs goal of county Human Services


* Editor's note: As a service to our read-
ers, the Highlands County Board of
County Commission departments have
been invited to write periodical columns
explaining their agency/department and
how 'it works. This is another in that
series.

Highlands County Human Services' ,
only objective is meeting human needs.
It is not unusual for our phone to ring
100 times in a day, and no two calls are
exactly the same. Our response can be
as simple as giving information or as
complicated as months of individual
case management.
On any given day we may hear from:
A family that cannot afford to bury
their still-born child.
A neighbor concerned about a child
that is being abused.
A parent seeking help in dealing
with an ungovernable child.
A domestic violence victim in need
of shelter and guidance.
A cancer patient with no way to pay
for needed chemotherapy.
The uninsured working poor who
cannot afford life sustaining prescrip-
tions.

medical and mental health issues.
An elder with no transportation to
necessary medical appointments.
A father who has lbst his job and
cannot pay the rent or put food on the
table for his family.
Effective service delivery requires an
interdisciplinary knowledge base that
focuses oh prevention and early inter-
vention with a commitment to improv-
ing the overall quality of life in the
community. Through collaboration and
partnerships with businesses, volunteers,
the faith community, local non-profit
agencies and state and federal agencies,
we are able to guide people to needed
services. We have also established the
Highlands County Human Services
Network where agencies are able to
share information about available
resources, identify needs in the.commu-
nity in order to develop additional
resources, and form partnerships to bet-
ter serve our community.
The establishment of our Children's ,
Services Council in 1990 was a giant


step in this direction. Because of the
efforts of the Children's Services
Council, many needs have been identi-
fied and programs developed to meet
those needs.
As a result of the council's work, we
now have a Safe House where domestic
violence victims and their children can
take shelter. Our children are better pro-
tected because of our Children's
Advocacy Center, where multi-discipli-
nary team investigations into child
abuse allegations take place in a child-
friendly environment. Our Healthy
Families program helps to ensure that
parents and parents-to-be receive train-
ing in child development and in how to
care for their newborn baby.
The list of council accomplishments
is long and has made a major impact in
our community.
Much is accomplished in the Human
Services arena in this community with
little tax dollars because of public-pri-
vate partnerships and generous, compas-
sionate volunteers.

visor for the Highlands County Health
Department.

Roy Riedy, teacher and thespian coach, dies


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands Little Theatre
lost a great friend Saturday with the
passing of Leroy J. Riedy. His loss is felt
by theater members as well as alumni of
Sebring High School, where Riedy spent
27 years teaching English and
Humanities and Theater.
Riedy was a longtime teacher, drama
critic, author and mentor to youth.
He died May 31, 2008 in
Lakeland after battling Lou
Gehrig's disease for several
months. He was 75.
Born in Lisle, Ill. in 1932, he
moved to Sebring in the early
1960s where he began teaching RI
sixth grade at Woodlawn
Elementary School. From the beginning
of his long career until his retirement in
1991, Riedy shared with his students his
enthusiasm for art, music, literature,
drama and history. For several summers
he and two colleagues provided the
Kuhlman Academy Learning Enrichment
Program for elementary students.
Later he transferred to Sebring High
School, where he taught classes and
served as senior class sponsor and
Thespians' coach/play director. By
spending many after-school hours intro-
ducing local young people to the excite-
ment of the theater, Riedy groomed
numerous teenagers for participation in
school and Highlands Little Theatre
musical and dramatic productions.
One of those students was Melanie
Boulay, HLT president. She had actually
met Riedy years earlier when she one of
the "Two Ladies" in the theater's per-
formance of "Cabaret" and Riedy was
the emcee. She was 13 at the time.


She described Riedy as "understand-
ing and easy to work with. He made you
feel at case when you were on stage with
him."
As a thespian coach/play director,
Boulay said Riedy "was the best cheer-
leader we had. He had this hardy laugh-
ter and always would thank you and
make you feel like you had done a good
job... He would give good advice
in a gentle way and he would
later congratulate you for doing a
* good job even if you didn't
really do a good job."
Boulay also had an opportunity
to direct Riedy in "Oliver."
edy "It was very intimidating
directing someone who has been
your mentor," she said.
Riedy graduated from Marmion
Military Academy in Aurora, Ill. He
earned his bachelor's degree from St.
Mary's College in Winona, Minn. For
two years he served in the U.S. Army
assigned to a military intelligence unit
and stationed in Germany. He later stud-
ied several years at The American
College in Rome, Italy, taking a pre-sem-
inary program, but his career goals
changed and he earned credentials to
become a teacher.
Ruth Handley, a dear friend of Riedy,
said, "Those years spent abroad spurred
his strong interest in world travel, travel
which included an National Education
Association Institute in Japan, 10 sum-
mer sessions at Oxford University under
the auspices of Duke and North Carolina
universities and numerous adventure
treks throughout the United States." Less
romantic travel included a year-long
commute to Tampa where he earned a


master's degree in English at the
University of South Florida.
After retirement from the classroom,
Riedy focused on writing "The Complete
History of Highlands Little Theatre" in
three volumes. Volumes I and II are cur-
rently available for purchase from HLT
offices and Volume III is expected to be
delivered soon. "These books are a
remarkable collection of facts, photos
and reviews of every production since
the founding of HLT. They also include
detailed records of the Zenon Awards
Program conducted by the local Little
Theatre. Hundreds of residents from
Highlands County can find themselves
listed in these accounts," Handley said.
News-Sun readers will also remember
Riedy's 'countless reviews of HLT per-
formances over the years.
"Roy was someone I looked up to, a
teacher, a friend, a mentor and I feel a
great loss. The theatre has lost a special
person. We are thankful though that he
put our history in black and white. Roy
pushed for the theatre to have a Web site
and was instrumental in its success,"
Boulay said.
Riedy's only survivors are several
cousins who are unable to travel to
Florida.
A Christian Mass will be said in his
honor at 10 a.m. Saturday at Our Lady of
Grace Catholic Church in Avon Park by
Fr. Gerald Grogan. Burial will follow at
Pinecrest Cemetery in Sebring.
In lieu of flowers, send donations to
Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church and
designate them to be used to fund travel
for two local church youth attending the
World Wide Catholic Youth Convention
this summer overseas.

legal immigration will be the
focus of attention.
"We have been such
staunch opponents of illegal
immigration, it almost
seemed as though those who
have spent the time, money
and effort to go through the
legal process have been over-
looked," said APF Highlands
County Chairman Rob
Horne.
Representatives of
England, Poland, Canada and
Germany have been invited
to attend and tell their stories
of how they navigated
through the immigration and
naturalization process. Some.
still are working their way
through it.
Also part of the program
will be a report from the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office about its increasing
involvement with
Immigration and Customs
Enforcement.
Hornet said the party plans
to have a June 20 get togeth-
er with Gayle Harrell.
Currently a member of the
Florida House of
Representatives, she is seek-
ing the District 16 congres-
sional seat now held by Tim
Mahoney.
The American Party of
Florida meets the first
Thursday of every month at
Homer's Restaurant. There is
a social hour at 6 p.m. with
the meeting to begin at 6:30.

J LAKE PLACID When
the Lake Placid Elementary
School second-grade class of
Ruth Mullins visited the
Historical Society Depot
Museum last February during
Pioneer Days, they brought
with them a generous dona-

the school year. This has been
a pattern with Mullins classes
over the years. But this year
was different.
These children appreciated
their time at the museum so

Continued from 1A
people are going to say the
person running is not as
important as what the parties
stand for, and I think people
will vote for the (Democratic)
candidate."
Florida Democratic Party
Chair Karen Thurman echoed
Hogan's sentiments in a series
of press releases over the
weekend, and said the DNC's
decision on Florida was in the
best interest of state
Democrats.
"Florida is the nation's
largest battleground state, and
the Democratic nominee -
no matter who it is is going
to have a strong opportunity
to win here," Thurman wrote
in a press release issued
before Saturday's DNC meet-
ing. "It's time to unite and
move full speed ahead toward
November to elect a
Democratic president."

Michigan decision
meets with controversy
Although the DNC rules
committee's decision to seat
Florida's delegates met with
general agreement from all
sides, the decision to restore
Michigan's delegates and
allot them 69-59 in favor of
Clinton met with much more
controversy, mostly because
Obama was allotted delegates
after taking his name off the
ballot. (The decision on allo-
cating Michigan's delegates
was based on a formula
including the vote totals, exit
polls, absentee ballots and
write-in votes.)
After the decision was
finalized, the Washington, DC
meeting place erupted with


RUN
Continued from 1A
and grabbed the victim's arm
while she held one of the chil-
dren, telling the victim, "I'm
going to kill you; I'm going to
cut you up," Davidson said.
As they continued to run,
the three fell over into the
road and Severiano-Morales
dropped the knife.
The victim picked it up and
continued to run from
Severiano-Morales with her
acquaintance and the two
children.
After running nearly 200
yards, the four came to a
house and knocked on the
door. The neighbor opened
the door and saw the victim
holding one of the children
and the knife. The two women


chants and protests from
Clinton supporters objecting
to delegates being taken away
from Clinton. A large contin-
gent of Clinton backers -
both inside and outside the
meeting room chanted
"Denver, Denver, Denver" in
reference to the site of the
party's national convention in
August, and urged Clinton to
fight the decision all the way
to the convention.
And the controversy over
Michigan extended as far as
Highlands County, where at
Monday's monthly party
meeting "quite a few people"
from Michigan spoke out
about Saturday's decision and
"they weren't very happy,"
Hogan said.-
"They didn't know if (allot-
ting Obama delegates) was
appropriate, and we let them
vent their ideas," he said.
However, Hogan said it
was probably in the party's
better interests to settle the
Florida and Michigan issues
now and with similar solu-
.tions, as opposed to letting
the fight drag on into August.
"It's a better idea to let
them do this now, before the
convention," he said, adding
that although there was con-
troversy, the Michigan argu-
ment ultimately boiled down
to a mere four-delegate differ-
ence, not nearly a large
enough number to significant-
ly help Clinton's chances.
And after Tuesday's final two
primaries, coupled with a
surge of superdelegates com-
ing his way, Obama appears
likely to reach the magic
number of 2,118 delegates
needed to clinch the nomina-
tion.
But no matter what ulti-
mately happens, the disputed


told the neighbor they needed
to call the police because
Severiano-Morales was trying
to kill them.
Deputies from the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office responded to the resi-
dence and arrested Severiano-
Morales.
He said he wanted to kill
the victim without explaining
why, but continued to say if
he went to jail he would kill
her and have someone kill her
family in Mexico too,
Davidson said.
Severiano-Morales was
charged with two counts of
felony child cruelty, two
counts of burglary of a struc-
ture, aggravated assault, and
attempted murder.
As of Tuesday, he remained
in jail on $452,000 bond.

SEBRING RECREATION CLUB
Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING Have you thanked
God for being able to live in a
state as nice as Florida? We take
so much for granted in life and
think so much is owed to us.
We are fortunate enough to
have the recreation club, a one-
stop entertainment center in
Sebring, active all year. Line danc-
ing, bridge, table tennis and shuf-
fleboard are the programs sched-
uled all this time. Thursday are
open so as we can make the sum-
mer shuffleboard league tourna-
ments if we want.
If you have a group that wants
another activity, talk with Ed
Straub about this.
May 15 tournament at Sebring
finds Clarence Wright and
Chapman Chamberlin among the
winners in the pro division.
Richard Ellison is number one
with the answers and Don
Rohman, Ruth Parker and Bill
Kaleita, all of Sebring, winning.
Tom Bruha did not place in the
tournament but he did win before
the start. If you question this last
statement, ask Tom.
Sebring Recreation Club wants
more shufflers, so if you are not a
shuffler, come and talk with John
Bushee and see how easy it is for
you to start.
Save gas and carpool to the
shuffleboard games Monday,
Wednesday and Saturday at 6:30
p.m. If you do not already shuffle,
come and learn with friends. You
will also have a chance to meet
Richard Elleson and talk with him.
I understand that at Francis II,
Richard has a new name. They
address him as champ I have
been told.
Wednesday line dancers and
shufflers can ride together. Table
tennis needs more people to play.
Good exercise for all at the club
and very good fellowship also. Be
a winner and come and let us
meet you, bring a friend with you.
Ed Straub is looking for things
to interest more people, so give
him your ideas. Ed is the club
president and a very hard worker,
so give him a challenge. Maria
Sheehan thinks-more line dancers
would just be great. She is also
looking for ideas to get new
dancers. John Bushee would have
more shufflers so that he has
more to do.
June 26 finds the tournament
in Sebring again. Let's have more
winners from Highlands County at
this one. We expect Carl Wile to
be one of the winners with all of
his rest so far this summer. Come
out and try to beat then if you can
on June 26 at Sebring.
Find us at 333 Pomegranate
Ave. behind the Sebring Police
Station.

TOWN & COUNTRY MHP
Janet Day

Although our calendar reads
spring days, we can vouch that
they sure feel like summer. Life at
Town & Country seems to have
slowed dramatically to those lazy,
hazy days and the main activity
seems to be pool related.
It is great to see Gene Clark
able to be out walking the
pooches and relaxing at the pool
area. The Clarks have also been
enjoying visits from their son and
granddaughter who will be driving
Gene and Evelyn back to New
they have enjoyed the Florida pool
warmth in contrast to those fluc-
tuations in temperature back in
Boston.
Had an interesting conversa-
tion with Don Schnoor. Loretta
suffered a serious stroke approxi-
mately two and a half months ago
and Don says she is able to do
most activities by herself now. He
credits this to the training he and
Loretta received to retrain her, to
the medical knowledge obviously,
but also to their determination
and perseverance over the past
two months to work together to
achieve the health she now expe-
riences. Don says they have
grown so much closer through
this experience (he didn't realize
this was possible) and both have
learned so much. Truly an inspir-
ing couple and we are thankful for
their example. Wonderful that
they plan an RV vacation at some


point over the next few months.
Our continued prayers and best
wishes.
Good news concerning Ruth
Lee. Ruth has been nursing prob-
lems with her elbow since April's
bad fall. She has had the pin
removed and now feels more nor-
mal. She will be having "some
contraption for support" and ther-
apy but she and Harold will be
leaving for Minnesota to finish
therapy and complete healing. It's


been an ordeal but we're happy to
hear the end is in sight.
Some sad news concerns Kitty
Edwards, the revered and cher-
ished friend of all. Miss Kitty is
suffering a serious illness but her
visitors all share that she is the
same uplifting, cheerful Kitty. We
at Town & Country Mobile Home
Park keep you and your family in
our daily prayers, Kitty.
Claudette and Leo Boisvert are
off on a vacation trip to the moun-
tains of Virginia. We are so happy
for them and wish them a reward-
ing trip. Hear Leo is just elated to
be able to fish from the deck of
their cabin. Dreamer's paradise it
seems! Bess and Bill Wyse have
been visiting family in Virginia
another areas also. This week-
end will be a special treat as their
grandson graduates from high
school. We grandparents are
always so proud of our grandkids
accomplishments. With all the
adverse things we hear today, we
have reason to celebrate the good
news.
We welcome newcomer Aurelia
DeGrande; Aurelia is residing in
the former Rose home on Town &
Country Boulevard. Also, Harold
and Anna McKeen are beginning
to settle into Carol Susi's former
home on Springtime. Belated
welcome to Barbara Sack who is
sharing the home of Eunice
Hazelton. "Lucky" just glows with
pride at having two moms walking
him around the park. Welcome to
all we trust you will be happy
here and become active as the fall
activities resume in October.
Bill LaPeer's construction is
completed and now Nancy and
John Haag are involved, in a major
renovation project. We are accus-
tomed to John changing and put-
tering, but the new windows and
siding are very attractive. Am sure
John's searching and planning
time will prove beneficial. We all
need to be thinking "green,"
which we read so much about
today.
Chuck and I will be traveling
back to New York State soon to
visit family. Trust all have a mar-
velous summer season. Though
we hope for no hurricanes, we
pray for everyone's safety.
Remember the American Red
Cross has available helpful infor-
mation and will be prepared to
help should the need arise.

TROPICAL HARBOR
Barbara Kelleher

LAKE PLACID Monday,
Memorial Day our coed coffee
was emceed by Wendell Hagg
who opened the meeting by ask-
ing all veterans who had served
their country to circle around the
podium and march out the front
door and gather around the flag
pole. We had 37 men and two
women present who served their
country, along with all the resi-
dents who attended the ceremony
as they raised the American flag
that was donated by Richard Allen
Rose, Command Master Chief.
The flag came from the USS
Columbia submarine that was sta-
tioned in Pearl Harbor Hawaii.
Richard Allen Rose is the son of
Cleadus and Shirley Rose, who
are residents of Tropical Harbor.
Upon returning to the club-
house, Wendell then recited vari-
ous patriotic passages that were
written by military spokesmen
that paid homage to all living and
dead who fought in various wars
in order that we may live in free-
dom. He then asked George
Susco, park manager, if he had
any information he wanted to
share. George told the group that
the health department told him
that some of the homes need to
install a back flow adapter to our
outside spigots; they also men-
tioned that many residents have
too many items in their drive-
ways. This can be hazardous if we
have strong winds or a hurricane.
The workers will be painting the
laundry room and maintenance
building.
We had over 100 people in
attendance. The military commit-
tee purchased doughnuts for all to
have with their coffee, which was
made by Bonnie and Jerry Allen.
Wendy then asked if we had any
new residents and we were
pleased to welcome Joy and Steve
Ridenour, who attended the meet-
ing with us.
He then asked our Sunshine


Lady, Carol Noel, for a report. She
told the group that former resi-

getting two new stoves for the
clubhouse, however they are
smooth-top surface type, there-
fore they take special pans. The
committee will look into this and
find out Ihow much the pans will
cost and let the members know.
Just as Rachel was discussing
this, the truck arrived for the men
to deliver and install the new
stoves. The women wanted to
make sure the area was cleaned
once the old stoves were removed
before installing the new ones.

Sebring Dixie City Tournament



Paradise, Publix crowned city champs


Struck pitches gem in 8-1 Paradise Pool win


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssuni.com
SEB.RING "We picked the wrong day to


come out flat," Rotary head coach
Bobby Cannon said.
But it's tough to do much of any-
thing when your opponent is hitting
on all cylinders, as was the case as
Pool Paradise wrapped up the
Sebring Dixie Youth Majors City
Championship Saturday with an 8-1
win.

"They've played us tough all year,"
Paradise head coach Dean Frazier said. "But
Jonathan (Struck) was just unbelievable
today."


Struck was, indeed, in a zone this day,
throwing a perfect game for four and one-
third innings before Rotary scratched out
it's lone hit and one run in the top of
dise the fifth with Brandon Ferretti
doing the honors for both.
But by that time, Struck had struck
out seven Rotary batters and the
ary Pool Paradise offense had staked
him to a 7-0 lead.
As has been their custom, the Pool
boys broke out first with two runs in
the opening inning.
Connor Cook singled, stole second and

SEBRING Publix ended

With an 8-8 overall record

Goin' Postal survived a scared

as the deli counter at noon on
a Tuesday.
The broke out with two
runs in the first on a two-RBI
double from Tommy
Bertoniere.
Postal pushed back with a
run in the bottom of the first
on Garret Martinez's double
to score Josh Gomez.
The score stayed 2-1 until
Postal tied things in the third.
Martinez walked and stole
two bases while Tyler Baker
drew a base on balls to put
runners on the corners.
Felix Basulto then hit a sac-
rifice fly to center to
even things tup at 2-2. Pu
It didn't stay tied for

"We've had good pitching,
good hitting, good defense.
You couldn't ask for a better

Players bemoan



tough courses


DUBLIN, Ohio Bay
Hill was brutal one year.
Shots into the firm greens
looked as if they were
bouncing off a trampoline,
yet the 'grass was so lush
in front of the green it'was
hard to get the ball close.
No one shot better than 69.
One major champion
unloaded in the parking lot
that evening, calling the
course a joke and wonder-
ing aloud if he would
return. Just then, tourna-
ment host Arnold Palmer
pulled up beside him in a
golf dart and asked him
what he thought.
He looked at the King,
shrugged and slowly nod-
ded his head.
"Not bad," he said.
Jack Nicklaus couldn't
stop laughing when he
heard this story Sunday
morning at the Memorial.
There was no shortage
of media complaints about
Muirfield Village, where
Kenny Perry won with the
highest score in 23 years.
Nicklaus might be color-
blind, but he can read '
black-and-white print in a
newspaper.
The source of players'
aggravation was rough that
might be as thick and long
as they see all year.
Combine that with the
fastest, purest greens on
tour and the results were
predictable. There were
more rounds in the 80s
than the 60s. Players near
the top of the leaderboard
said it was tough but fair.
Players near the bottom
said it was ridiculous.


From the Fringe
Doug Ferguson
Nicklaus could relate to
Palmer.
"Not one player said a
word to me," he said.
Course setups get about
as much attention as slow
play these days, and solu-
tions are equally difficult
to find. Nicklaus made it
clear that he wasn't in
charge of the way
Muirfield Village played
- that ultimately falls to
the PGA Tour staff but
it was no different from
previous years, except for
a wet spring that made the
grass grow.
The rough, indeed, was
troublesome. Mike Weir
had a wedge to the fifth
green in the final round
and chipped out from the
deep rough (he still made
par). Phil Mickelson rifled
a 3-wood some 290 yards
to the par-5 11th green in
the second round, and the
ball rolled off the back
into the rough. It was so
deep he wound up scram-
bling for par.
"I think one of the
greatest shots in golf is the
recovery," Nicklaus said.

team is heading to Cooperstown, N.Y. Friday for a national tournament, bringing top teams from all over the country to
compete.


Sebring AAU's headed to the Hall


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun .comn
SEBRING The Sebring
AAU travel team will be hit-
ting the road this weekend,
but not for one of their usual
visits around the state.
They'll still be facing the
top-notch competition
they're used to, only on a
much larger scale as the team
heads to the National
Invitational Tournament in
Cooperstown, N.Y.
"We have some kids that
play Dixie ball, but some
who only play AAU," head
coach Tommy Lovette said.
"It's a much higher level of'
competition. We play teams
from Miami, St. Petersburg,


Tampa, Orlando, Sarasota.
"And even though those
are bigger areas with a larger
talent pool to draw from,
we've been real competi-
tive," he added. "We played
the number four team in the
state, Sarasota, and lost 10-7,
so we're right there."
Some of their familiar foes
might be seen again as the
Sebring squad will be one of
10 teams from Florida among
the 98 teams coming in from
all ovel' the nation.
The tournament will have
a seven-game format, after
which the teams will then be
seeded based upon their
record and proceed in a sin-
gle elimination champi-


onship bracket.
The trip will continue their
busy schedule, which includ-
ed 20 games last fall and 25
this spring, not to mention
the games those that also
play Dixie took part in. -
But the experience of vis-
iting Cooperstown isn't just
about playing ball, as the
kids will have a chance to to
visit the Baseball Hall of
Fame.
"I'm going to be looking at
all the pitchers," Chris
Hensley said. "It's going to
be a lot of fun."
As for the difference
between Dixie and AAU.
Dane' Maddox explains his
choice to stick with just play-


ing for the latter.
"It's more of a challenge
and it's been good for me as
a player," he said. "It's been
a great experience playing
against some really great
players."
And though they are titled
the Sebring AAU squad, it
does manage to have a bit
more of a Highlands County
feel with a representative
each from Avon Park and
Lake Placid among the II1-
player roster.
It should be quite an expe-
rience for the team, getting a
close-up look at the history
of their favorite game, all
while taking a step toward
their future in it.

GOLF
Continued from 1C
"I hate it when you're hack-
ing out, and they're doing
that at my tournament. I hate
that. But I have no control
over that."
The lawn mowers weren't
broken, but the grass was so
thick it might not have mat-
tered.
Some players felt as
though they were at a U.S.
Open, and maybe that's why
Nicklaus was so amused to
hear so much whining.
'He used to go to the U.S.
Open, listen to players com-
plain about the course, and
figure those guys had no
chance.
"You have to learn to
adjust," Nicklaus said. "If I
couldn't adjust my game to
the conditions, I didn't
deserve to do well."
The problem is whether the
PGA Tour is getting enough
variety.
For all the complaining at
Memorial, there were birdies
to be made.
Mathew Goggin made 15
over the first two days, along
with his share of bogeys.


Even so, Davis Love III has
noticed the winning score
getting worse in recent years.
"Scores should be going
down, not up," Love said.
"'That's a pretty good indica-
tion that it's getting harder.
Nobody ever shoots 20 under
anymore. And players are a
heck of a lot better. The
fields are deeper."
Love said the course setup
was a major topic ait the play-
ers' meeting last month in
North Carolina.
Why arle courses so haurd'?
What kind of show can
they put on for the fans and a
television audience when
they're scrambling for par?
And who's idea was this,
anyway?
"It's a four-letter word,"
Steve Flesch said at the
Memorial. "And he runs this
place."
The mandate actually came
from the PGA Tour policy
board nearly 20 years ago.
with onl\ a few instructions.
Firm, closely mown grass on
the tees, fairways and greens.
Thick. evenly dispersed
rough (when growing condi-
tions allow).
The summation of that
1990 document was to have


'It get's to the
point when golf,
even for us, gets
pretty boring.'
JOE OGILVIE
PGA tour pro
all courses play as difficult as
possible while remaining fair.
Exactly what that means, of
course, is subject to interpre-
tation.
Are course setups getting
worse?
- In 22 stroke-play events
this year, 10 winning scores
were higher, 10 were lower
and two were the same.
"I don't want to sound like
the guy who's 44 and not
playing good." said Love,
who turned 44 in April and is
not playing particularly well.
"But it's really hard. It does-
n't matter if it's hard or easy
- it's the same for every-
body. But is that what we
want?"
This follows a year in
which average birdies were
way down from previous
years, along with TV ratings,
and players began asking if


fans might lose interest
watching the best in the
world hack it around every
week.
"I think Phil had the right
idea when he said technology
has gone two ways," Joe
Ogilvie said. "We have better
balls, better drivers, better
equipment. Johnny Miller
talks about equipment almost
as much as he talks about
himself. But 15 years ago,
they couldn't grow rough 10
inches. John Deere makes a
hell of a tractor that cuts the
greens lower and lower and
lower.
"It gets to the point when
golf even for us gets
pretty boring."
Next week is the U.S.
Open, where the winning
score has been 5 over par the
last two years.
Ogilvie believes PGA Tour
commissioner Tim Finchem,
the USGA and other golf
organizations want courses to
be tougher than ever so fans
won't think "these guys are
good" simply because of the
better equipment.
"But at least," Ogilvie
said, "they're not saying
'these guys are.good' because
of HGH."

issue you a gas card t6ati
used at 97% of gas satiO i
the United States. It's hassle
free! The number of gallons is
based on the EPA mileage rat-
ing for each vehicle. With
gasoline at $4.00/gallon and
diesel approaching $5.00/gal-
lon, the savings between now
and 2011 when your card will
expire will be thousands of
dollars. In most cases, Chrysler
has put a rebate up to $3,000
on their vehicles in addition to
the $2.99 gas guarantee.
