City-owned vehicles

' AVON PARK Members
of the Avon Park City Council
revisited the council's city-
owned vehicle policy Monday
night.
The council agreed to con-
tinue to allow police officers
to drive their cruisers to and
from home. They also agreed
that the five other city vehi-
cles that go home four in
the public utilities department
and one in the parks and recre-
ation department may also
do so.
Even so, regulations have
been tightened up.
Access to a city vehicle, the
council made clear, is a privi-
lege, not a right. Individual
drivers may have their privi-
leges revoked if they misuse

Mixed



results

County's younger

students fare well

on FCAT, but older
students lag behind

christopher.tuffley@newssun
SEBRING School district offi-
cials are pouring over the results of the
Florida Comprehensive Assessment
Tests, which were released Tuesday
morning.
Results for third-grade students, tak-
ing' the tests for the first time, show
promise. This group scored four per-
centage points above last year's group
of third-graders, meaning 74 percent
are reading on grade level, or higher.
Third grade math scores were even
more exciting. Eighty percent of this;
year's third-graders are performing at
grade level or higher. That is a 4 per-
cent increase over last year.
In both reading and math, Highlands
County third-graders are performing
above the state average two points
above in reading, four points above in
terms of math.
Unfortunately, the news is mixed in
the higher grades; and becomes down
right disappointing at 10th grade.
Less than a third of Highlands
County's sophomores are reading on
grade level or higher only 30 percent
- and that number is down three
points from 2007.
This year's 10th-graders have
slipped in math as well. Only 62 per-

SEBRING City officials have
decided to temporarily close the City
Pier public beach on Lake Jackson fol-
lowing a drowning Saturday afternoon.
At issue is a dredge hole, approxi-
mately 12 feet deep and running parallel
to the beach area, which played a part in
the tragedy and poses an unacceptable
risk.
According to witnesses and the police
report, the victim, 23-year-old Bobby
Clark, had been swimming back and
forth across the dredge hole to a sand bar

cramp.
A friend tried to rescue Clark, but in
the panicked thrashing was unable to
hold on to him. It was at that point that
Clark disappeared into the depth of the
hole. It took divers almost a half an hour
to find him.
The hole was created back when the
City Pier was built. Normally it goes

Rep. primary

Just-retired administrator

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin shutt@ aewssun.com
SEBRING In the nine days since he retired
as Highlands County administrator, Carl Cool
became a licensed real estate agent, repaired a
derailleur on his brand new mountain bike and
filed to run for county commission.
Cool was with the county for 33 years, work-
ing his way up from assistant
engineer and spending the sec-
ond half of his tenure as the
county's first administrator.
By filing his papers Monday
afternoon with Supervisor of
Elections Joe Campbell, Cool
will attempt to transition from
policy keeper to policy maker. Cool
"I know how to serve people,"'
Cool said Tuesday, taking a
break after a Sonny's lunch to
talk with the News-Sun before
going to Lake Placid to open hisH,
campaign account. "I like to
serve people. I feel like I'm part
of the improvement Highlands
County has experienced." Stewart
Cool said he knows the coun-
ty, his knowledge gained growing up here and
three decades as a government employee. He
describes himself as a forward-thinker who plans
long term.
Detractors question the efficacy of seeking an
office that six months after retiring would
make Cool a supervisor of his replacement,
Michael Wright.

AVON PARK -
Memorial Elementary
School is nearing comple-
tion, right on track to be
open for the 2008-'09
school year.
School Board
Chairman J. Ned
Hancock brought his
hard hat to the con-
struction site out of
habit, but was
informed he didn't Hai
need it.
According to Facilities
Coordinator for the School
Board Dave Burnham, there
will be "substantial comple-
tion" within two weeks.
"We arc starting some of


our substantial completion
inspections this week," he
said. "Once we get that I can
essentially occupy the build-
ing."
The school has come a
long way since the
last time the board
paid the building a
group visit.
"We didn't have
dry wall up, no, finish
or doors; it is just so
much further along,"
ncock Hancock said. "You
can really tell what it
is now."

ued putting on the finishing
touches, surrounded by signs

CRA sees computer rendering

of possible Circle renovation


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.comn
SEBRING The Circle
has been the subject of much
discussion lately at
Community Redevelopment
Agency meetings, and
Monday was no exception.
At the meeting, Marshall
Widden of Widden Design
Studio presented a computer
rendering of possible plans
for the renovation of the
Circle as part of Streetscape
IX.
The plans included a vari-
ety of ideas that would
change the look of the
Circle, including installation
of new benches and water
fountains, extending the
paving in the middle of


Circle Park, and creating
green spaces around Circle
Park Drive.
Those green spaces would
not be placed in existing
parking spaces, but instead
would be built in areas that
are lined off now as no park-
ing zones.
Having the green spaces
will "tighten up parking and
capture areas for green
space," Widden said, and
plants and shrubbery (of a
species yet to be determined)
will be planted in the spaces.
The green spaces would
not extend'out into the roads,
Widden said. In reality, the
green spaces will not extend

AP Wal-Mart expected


to be open in August


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tu!fft'y@newssun.com(i
AVON PARK Wal-Mart
has begun hiring about 350
associates for its new
Supercenter at its hiring cen-
ter at 998 Main St.
Desiree Andrews, an assis-
tant manager at the Sebring
store and helping to open the
new store, said applicants
must fill out an application.
Then there is a wait of about a
week while references are
checked Andrews warns
applicants to be sure contact
telephone numbers are cor-
rect.
Once applicants clear
screening they are called back
for an interview.
The center will remain in
operation until July 6. It is
open five and a half days a
week:
8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday
and Tuesday;
8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Wednesday through Friday;
8 a.m. to noon Saturday.
After July 6, Wal-Mart will
still be hiring, but doing so
out of the new Superstore, its


manager, Brian Lemelin said
Monday evening.
Lemelin expressed pleasure
with the process so far.
"We're seeing a lot of quality
applicants," he said, and
across a wide range of experi-
ence, age and background.
"We've seen 170 applicants
so far today and are still
accepting applications," he
added, "and have started
interviewing."
Andrews said associates are
still needed in all areas of the
store.
According to the press
release announcing the
Superstore, benefits for eligi-
ble associates include health
care insurance with no life-
time maximum, a 401 (k) plan
and profit sharing contribu-
tion, store discount cards, a
stock purchase program and
life insurance. Associates are
eligible for business perform-
ance-based bonuses.
The new store is scheduled
to open in mid-August. The
majority of associates will
begin work at the end of June
in preparation of the opening.

AVON PARK'-- Tempers
flared and civil debate
crashed and burned during the
city council meeting Monday
night.
At issue is what amounts to
a border conflict that threat-
ens the expansion of the pub-
lic airport on one side of State
Road 64, and the develop-
ment of Roland Dilley's pri-
vate property on the other.
Jim Renfro, owner and
operator of Highlands
Aviation, located at the air-
port, had hardly begun to
,speak in opposition to attor-
-ney Bud Eu L-who represents
,Tliille ,'Ph'ei Renfro conit
pared Furr to a daughter's
suitor who smooth talks the
dad and is charming inside
the house, until he gets the
girl outside and has his own
way with her. ;
Furr immediately sprang up
from the audience crying
foul.
"I think it's a personal
attack," he said demanding an
apology.
Pounding her gavel, Mayor
Sharon Schuler cut off both
men and ended debate on the
spot.
"There will be no more dis-
cudlion of the airport
tonight," she said.
The men were part of a
debate about what to do next
in resolving the messy situa-
tion, but the angry exchange
ended action for the evening.
The key dispute involves a
runway at the airport which
was extended years ago and
involves Roland Dilley's
property in what is referred to
as a Runway Protection Zone.
That is an area meant to be a
buffer in the event of trouble
on take-off or landing. In turn
that means there are restric-
tions on what can be built in
the zone.
The situation is even more

Tempers flare over issue at Avon

Park City Council meeting


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Jim Polatty, development services director for the county,
addresses the Avon Park city council Monday night about
the development of property belonging to Roland Dilley just
north of the airport. Polatty told the council that the county
prefers low-density, single-family housing on the site. Dilley
is hoping to build eight units per acre.


complicated because when
the runway was last extended,
the city did so without notify-
ing adjacent land owners.
Initially, however, there
was no conflict. Dilley grew
citrus, and the groves neither
posed a threat, nor were in
danger.
Then came citrus canker,
disaster, and the loss of his
trees.
It wasn't until he was sud-
denly in a position to develop
his property that Dilley dis-
covered it was a part of the
protection zone and that the
Federal Aviation Authority
controlled what could be done
to it.
In the years since, Dilley,
the city of Avon .Park,
Highlands County, a ndi the.


FAA have been trying to
arrive at a solution.
At its May 27 meeting, the
city council voted unani-
mously for a plan to shift the
runway and extend it another
2,000 feet in the opposite
direction, which would free
the Dilley property from the
protection zone.
For a moment it looked like
a resolution was at hand.
But Furr appeared before
the council Monday to com-
plain about new delays and
city and county requests for
new easements and last
minute zoning changes.
In fact, Jim Polatty, devel-
opment services director for
the county, also spoke
Monday night, saying the

Both Furr and John
McClure, an attorney who
spoke about the importance of
the airport in Avon Park's
economic plans, strongly
urged representatives of the
involved parties sit down
together and work the differ-
ences out. ;
"It is a very difficult issue."
McClure said, "very difficult

should."

Three men

jailed n raid

By TREY CHRISTY
: trey.ehristy@newssun.com
SEBRING Three men
were arrested over the week-
end when a search warrant on
their home allegedly turned up
35 grams of cocaine and 75
grams of marijuana.
Matthew Schirling, 24,
Jesus Soto, 20, and Michael
Roque, 27, all with a
listed address of 3531
Ellington Ave., were at
the home when the
search warrant was
served,
"A.search of the res-
idence was subse-
quently conducted Ro
revealing various
amounts of illegal
drugs and contraband
within the residence,"
the arrest report by
Officer Charles
Proctor of the
Highlands County i
Sheriffs Office said. Schi
Schirling and Soto
were in the southeast
bedroom when police
entered the residence,
Proctor said.
The dresser in that
bedroom allegedly
contained 35 grams of
cocaine, a digital scale, So
and a 9mm Glock
handgun.
"Schirling was laying
approximately one foot from
the dresser where the cocaine
and firearm were located,"
when police entered the home,
Proctor said.
Schirling initially deriied
living there.
When police told him they
found documents inside the
dresser with his name and the
Ellington Avenue address, he
allegedly admitted to living
there, but denied ownership of
the items, stating they
belonged to a friend.
No documents or identifica-
tion were found inside the
house containing the friend's
name or information.
When they conducted a


search of the .suspects, police
allegedly discovered seven
bags of marijuana inside
Soto's right front pocket.
The total weight of the sus-
pected marijuana was 75.8
grams.
A closer look yielded four
additional baggies in Soto's
right front change pocket con-
taining a total of 1.8 grams of
cocaine, Proctor said.
Soto allegedly made the
unsolicited remark "that is for
personal use," when the offi-
cer found the cocaine.
After police read
Soto his Miranda
rights, he said he lost
his job and used the
money from his last
paycheck to purchase
the marijuana, intend-
ue ing to sell it to make
money, Proctor said.
Post-Miranda Soto
allegedly commented
on the cocaine as well.
ke "(He) stated he uses
the above cocaine for
M personal use to help
A him stay awake,"
ling Proctor said.
A third resident,
Roque, was arrested
when the northeast bed-
room was found to
allegedly contain a par-
tially smoked marijua-
na cigarette on the
floor.
to Roque admitted to
smoking marijuana, but
said he doesn't sell it, Proctor
said.
Schirling was charged with
elony trafficking of cocaine
and possession of narcotic
equipment The location of the
firearm satisfied the statutory
requirement for Schirling to be
charged with armed traffick-
ing, Proctor said. He remained
in the Highlands County Jail
Tuesday on $15,500 bond. -.
Soto was charged with pos-
session of marijuana with
intent to sell, possession of
cocaine and narcotic equip-
ment. He was released on
$2,500 bond.
Roque was arrested for mis-
demeanor possession of mari-
juana and was released on
$500 bond.

Hancock and board member
Wally Randall mentioned the
benefits of the new school,
mainly safety and the integrat-
ed technology.
"If I was a parent this is
where I would want my kid to
go," Randall said. "Computer
hookups, installation is

projectors for the Smart

room, that's all built in."
Hancock agreed to the
advantages of being at a newly
constructed school.
"They have a lot of things in
that school other schools wish
they might have," he said.
The school board has spent
thousands of dollars over the
past few years integrating
Smart Board technology into
each of the elementary
schools, and specifically put-
ting one in each room when
they renovated the former
Sebring Food Lion building to
become the Kindergarten
Learning Center.

The Streetscape plans also
call for some notable changes
inside the Circle. In order to'
create more of what Widden
called a "social space," the
plans call for picnic tables to
be installed around each side-
walk, along with additional
benches that will face inward
towards the park's center.
Also, the square apron in the
middle of the Circle will be
eliminated to make the geome-
try more circular, and more
brick areas will be added in
the area.
The CRA commissioners
offered some suggestions and
tweaks, but for the most part
they were in agreement with
Keith and Schn.ars' plans.

The presentation of the

process of developing specifi-

These concerns have been

"I don't know when I

Cool doesn't apologize for
having lifelong friends, some
of whom happen to be politi-

Carlson and Bert Harris III.
Rather, it's his historical

Cool said.

At the same time, the

with the water channels off
Veteran's Beach.
When the fire department
recently tried to launch its
rescue boat in the lake to
respond to a capsized vessel,
there wasn't enough water in
the channel to float it. The
boat had to be man-handled

This led to the decision to
dredge the channel out.

the state did slightly better,
improving two years in a row,
their scores were still less than

Some grade levels present
surprises.
For example, fifth-graders
showed a sharp divide.

dropping 7 percent from 2007.
That means only 61 percent of
this year's fifth-graders are

However, in math, this

that advance is good, it still

Should Carlson and Cool be

change their friendship but not

"We will remain friends, but
we will have to be extremely
cautious," he said, explaining
they would go to great lengths
to avoid any appearances of
impropriety.
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart had ,no reaction or
response to Cool's entering the

She said a commissioner's
role is too important to make
the election personal. Stewart
said she'll continue to run on
government accountability,

informed decision making.
If no Democrats qualify by
June 20, the race could be
decided during an Aug. 26 pri-

"I'm not running against

This is not something that
can be done immediately,
Scott Noethlich, assistant city
administrator, said Tuesday,
as it will require permitting
and planning. However, the
city will apply as an emer-
gency,situation and hopes for
quick approval, especially as
the DEP is in favor of the

While that process goes on,
the city will cordon off the

Only 37 percent of 2008

although that is an improve-
ment of three percentage
points over last year.
This .year's eighth-graders
showed seven points -of
improvement over 2007's,
although in this case too, only
36 percent have grade level
knowledge and skill.
Eleventh-graders fared the
worst in the science test. Only
32 percent have grade level
knowledge and skill, and that
percent dropped three points
from 2007.
State averages are signifi-

Other viewpoint

For many adoptive families across the United
States, love is truly colorblind. Each year, thousands
of adults are willing to cross racial lines to give
homes to children who need them, and 16 percent of
the adoptions in Volusia and Flagler counties fall into
this category.
Adoption can be stressful for parents and children
alike. When a child comes from foster care with a sig-
nificant history of abuse or neglect, adjustment can be
stormy an effect magnified when parents are from
a different cultural, ethnic or socioeconomic class.
Yet the federal government's policy, as expressed in
the 1994 Multi-Ethnic Placement Law, pretends race
doesn't matter in most adoptions. Adoption agencies
aren't allowed to consider whether families are
equipped to handle the challenges of cross-racial
adoption or required to talk to them about problems
that commonly arise. Potential adoptive parents con-
sidering a child of a different ethnicity often have lit-
tle training or ongoing support.
The intent behind the law is obvious. Black chil-
dren are disproportionately likely to be in permanent
foster care. They make up 32 percent of foster chil-
dren, but only 15 percent of children in the United
States. These children need and deserve permanent,
loving homes. The 1996 law was an attempt to break
down barriers and encourage more families to consid-
er adopting minorities.
But the law isn't working out as planned. Black
children.are still less likely to be adopted than chil-
dten in other racial groups. And children adopted by
parents of a different race can struggle with identity
issues and psychological distress.
States should also do more to encourage minority
families to consider adopting children, by eliminating
the barriers that keep them from coming forward.
For many families, poverty is a significant hin-
drance to adoption. With federal backing, states could
help subsidize the legal costs of adoption for low-
income families, and provide support including med-
ical care and long-term counseling for children likely
to need it.
Without federal support, unfortunately, states like
Florida are unlikely to be to able afford such pro-
grams. But federal officials should recognize that
these programs save money in the long run by moving
children out of foster care and into permanent, loving
homes.
- Race should not be a barrier to a child in need of a
home. But neither should it be an unanticipated stum-
bling block for adoptive families seeking to build new
lives together. Federal law, policy and funding should
reflect that.

5 years later and still waiting
for a response from county
Editor:
Well, it's been over five years and
still haven't received a response from
the Highlands County Commission
regarding the local gas tax.
I am looking over a response letter
from United States Senator Bob Graham
of Florida dated Feb. 21., 2003. And
quote: 'Dear David, Thank you for your
letter regarding gasoline tax in your
area. Because this is a matter in which
the local government has jurisdiction, I
have contacted the Highlands County
Commission and have asked them to
review this situation. I am certain that
they appreciate being made aware of
your concerns. And I am confident that
a direct response will be provided to
you as soon as possible. I appreciate
your bringing this matter to my atten-
tion. Please know that my staff and I
stand ready to assist you with other
issues in which federal guidelines or
potential federal policy applies. With
kind regards, Bob Graham.
' Could you please respond to me as
per my senator's request.

WASPS are veterans
Editor:
In the Monday, June 9, edition of the
Highlands Today, a story was written by
Gary Pinnell giving an excellent histori-
cal account of Barry Smith, a Women
Air force Service Pilot (WASP) during
World War II. On the continuation of
the story on page 9, Pinnell states, "Ms.
Smith is not considered a veteran. The
WASPs were civilians."
This is not entirely a correct state-


ment.
According to the Department of
Veterans Affairs, and published in the
2008 edition of Federal Benefits for
Veterans and Dependents, Chapter 9,
speaks to Special Groups of Veterans:
"World War Service by Particular
Groups: A number of groups who pro-
vided military-related service to the
United States can receive VA benefits. A
discharge by the Secretary of Defense
(known as a DD-Form 214) is needed to
qualify. Service in the following groups
has been certified as active military
service for benefits purposes:" (page
70), and then gives a listing of eligible
groups.
Of the 33 groups on the list, the first
listed is the Women Air Force Service
Pilots (WASPs).
If an individual has received a dis-
charge from the Secretary of Defense
and falls under one of these qualifying
groups, then that individual is a veteran.
and may be entitled to veteran benefits.
For a full listing of those "other vet-
erans," please go to the VA Web site,
www.va.gov. The 2008 edition of the
Federal Benefits for Veterans and
Dependents is available on-line to order
for a nominal fee, or to download.

Step Up and Graduation
a nice ceremony
Editor:
Thanks to Martha and Claudia
Olivares for.inviting me to the
Montessori Children's Year-End Step ,
Up and Graduation ceremony. There
were 21 children who will be going on
to "another" school.
Every time I am. lucky enough to
attend one of these affairs I am amazed!
They dance, sing and do sign language.
I don't remember anyone in my past
school years being this bright.
The dedicated teachers, volunteers
and Gary Filip, the music teacher,
directed and produced this awesome
program, with great patience and care
for so many children.
Please allow me to brag about my
special girl, Clarissa Olivares. She real-
ly made me proud and I loved it when
she was the first one to toss up her grad-
uation hat. I know she will really miss
Montessori School when she has to go
on to another school in the fall.
* Good luck, love and special prayers
to all of these really special children
and those who have been such a big part
in their lives.

Financial situation for Sun 'N Lake subdivision needs to be addressed


An open letter to George
Puffenberger, president, of
Sun 'N Lake Board of
Supervisors:
In light of the deepening,
negative economic situation
that we are experiencing in
Highlands County and
throughout the state of
Florida, I think that it is
appropriate and timely that
you, your fellow supervisors
and senior district staff
address our financial situa-
tion here in Sun 'N Lake in
an aggressive and compre-
hensive manner. ... I see little
evidence of similar concerns
expressed in our meetings in
this community.
At this point, let me try to
summarize our current eco-
nomic position:
1. Our district revenue pri-
marily comes from operation
and maintenance assess-
ments. ... we have an assess-
ment delinquency rate of
42.1 percent at the present
time. Given the current and
projected short-term real
estate market, as well as our
problems with NRP, this
financial picture is unlikely
to significantly change in the
near future.
2. We have budgeted a


shortfall of $1.3 million this
past fiscal year, which ,means
we must dip into our finan-
cial reserves to achieve a
"balanced" budget. On top of
that, current large landowner
assessment delinquencies
will probably acerbate this
shortfall by another $
800,000. Our present-day
district credit rating is such
that we must depend upon
loans rather than issuing
bonds for capital projects ...
3. We have obligated our-
selves to a number of large-
scale capital projects such as
the "grey water" plant, the.
new golf clubhouse, the
recreation complex and the
maintenance building with-
out complete financing in
hand or contractually prom-
ised.
4. We have allowed our
attorney to instigate foreclo-
sure proceedings on a large
number of properties, which
have resulted in attorney
billings to the district of
more than $300,000 for the
fiscal year to-date. The bud-
geted amount for this activity
for the full fiscal year is
$150,000. Income to-date
from these foreclosure
actions is under $ 40,000. In


Guest
Column
Richard E. Miller
other words, we are currently
spending $7.50 for every dol-
lar we take in from foreclo-
sures. ... At the same time,
the county is instigating fore-
closure procedures on most
of the same properties at no
cost to us. if we had not taken
our own foreclosure actions.

5. Our district assessments
were increased by 14 percent
last year and will be
increased again this year by
at least a similar percentage
- if not more. While this dol-
lar amount may seem bear-
able to most of us, there are' a
significant number of resi-
dents here who will struggle
with this increased cost ...
Listed below are a number
of candidate remedial actions
which I trust will receive
consideration from you and
your colleagues. Hopefully,
some of these analyses may
already be under way.
1. Institute an across-the-
board new hire freeze, with
exceptions only on a case-by-
case basis with direct prior


review and approval by the
Board of Supervisors.
2. Temporarily cap all staff
salaries and fringe benefits.
Limit annual increases to
cost-of-living scales.
Discontinue bonus and com-
pensatory time practices until
better financial times'.
Severely limit staff confer-
ence and educational atten-
dan6e and travel, with
approval only given for
required staff vocational or
professional certification.
3. Discontinue district
vehicle take-home practices
for staff living outside Sun
'N Lake. Pay mileage, at
approved rates, to designated
staff using their personal
vehicles to respond to district
operation and maintenance
emergencies.
4. Review all current dis-
trict consultant contracts and.
retainers in terms of potential
savings and/or deferrals in
this area.
5. Immediately perform a
mid-year budget review with
emphasis upon revised rev-
enue projections and an
analysis of nondiscretionary
and discretionary operational
and capital expenditures ...
6. Review all upcoming


capital improvement projects
from the standpoint of imme-
diate need and ability to pay.
7. Conduct cost/benefit
analysis of providing some
district services through con-
tracts and/or agreements with
other jurisdictions; i.e. tax
collection, fire protection,
etc.
8. Immediately cease fore-
closure actions on all Sun 'N
Lake properties which are
currently under county delin-
quency procedures. ...
9. Involve district residents
with financial planning and
budgeting expertise in the
investigations suggested
above ...
In summary, while this is
not my area of expertise,
there are a number of resi-
dents here in Sun 'N Lake
with significant experience in
the budgeting and financial
sector and I'm sure some of
them would welcome an
opportunity to be of service
to the district. Use them. We
all want Sun 'N Lake to be
an outstanding community.

SEBRING RECREATION CLUB
Chapman Chamberlin

SEBRING Ed Straub has
returned home from a visit to
the north. He is very happy to
be home and warm again.
New member Betty Rizor is a
pro who travels with us.
The price of gas is the most
expensive part of shuffle-
board today. You can enter
any shuffleboard tournament
"in our area for just $5. How
else could you spend a day for
$5? Monday and Wednesday
evening for ice cream shuffle-
board you will spend 25 cents.
For this, you get to play three


games and then everybody
wins ice cream. Saturday
evening is a different story
altogether with pin shuffIle
being the game. No charge
and no ice cream at the end
unless you desire to purchase
ice cream.
This club is a no-risk
organization on your part,
come and be our guest and see
if you are not pleased with the
time that you spend with us.
Shuffleboard, line dancing,'
table tennis and bridge during
the summer is the name of the
game.
Tom Bruha is trying to get
more table tennis players, so
why not surprise him and
bring your friends Tuesday
and Friday at 4 p.m. to play
table tennis. I also understand
that Tom Bruha and Ed Straub
repaired the two Ping-Pong
tables.
Shuffleboard has two
objectives being score as
often as possible and to pre-
vent one's opponent from
scoring whenever possible.
An offensive play is a shot
that is made to increase the
player's chances of scoring. A
defensive play is a shot made
primarily to keep the oppo-
nent from scoring. By suc-
cessfully clearing the board, a
player can keep his opponent
in a defensive position, but
failure to clear the board the
opponent will allow his offen-
sive shot or a score for them.
There is no place for defen,
sive strategies in the game of
shuffleboard only defensive
shots. Because defensive
strategies will not win, a play-
er should always take the
offense.
May 29 Avon Park shuffie-
board tournament has now
passed with John Bushee, Ed
O'Neal, Ester Bryson and
Ruth Parker, the only winners
from Highlands County.
Wendell and Mary Ruth Lutes
were able to appear and say
hello to the many friends.
Shirley Wright was present all
day to say hello and cheer us
up as were defeated. June 26
finds the tournament in
Sebring again.
Ed Straub is still waiting


for your phone call with ideas
for the club at 386-0245. Find
us in back of the Sebring
Police Station at 333
Pomegranate Avenue.

Shingles can be

problem for eyes
Shingles,
also known
as the her-
pes zoster
virus, is
simply a
reactivation
of the virus
that caused
Focal your chicken
v alat pox earlier
Point in life. The
Dr. Valerie virus lies
Moulds dormant in
the spinal
nerve cells and can be reacti-
vated years later when the
immune system is challenged
or suppressed by
physical/emotional trauma,
serious illness, or certain
medications.
The first symptom most
patients notice is a tingling
or pain similar to having a
sun burn on one side of the
face or body. Painful skin
blisters begin to appear sev-
eral days later, also on one
side of the face or body. This
skin rash is typically found
on the chest, abdomen, back
or face, although it can also
affect the neck, limbs and
lower back as well.
The blisters, or eruptions,
are very painful, itchy and
tender. Sometimes eye pain,
red eye, headache, fever, or
fatigue may precede the rash.
After 1-2 weeks the blisters
begin to heal and form scabs:
however, the pain often con-
tinues.
When the rash affects the
face, it usually affects one
side of the forehead and
scalp, does not cross the
midline of the face, and
involves only the upper eye-
lid. Upon exam, the eye doc-
tor will evaluate both the
surface of the eye as well as
the optic nerve and retina
looking for any signs of viral
involvemei-t in ih,'se iis. Lue
The doctor will also check
the pressure in the eye at that
time.
After the infection has run
its course, some patients will
develop a deep pain known
as post-herpetic neuralgia
that can continue for months
and sometimes years. This is
more common in the elderly.
The incidence of shingles
increases with age. Over 50
percent of cases develop in
patients older than 60. In
patients younger than 40, a
medical evaluation should, be
conducted to determine
whether the patient may be
immunocompromised.
Shingles usually only occurs
once, although it may recur
in some cases.
The treatment for shingles
consists of taking an oral
antiviral agent such as
Acyclovir, usually several
times a day for a week to 10
days. If the condition is
severe, the patient may need
to be hospitalized on this
medication for five to 10
days. An antibiotic ointment
is prescribed to keep the skin
eruptions from becoming
infected, and warm com-
presses are usually applied to
the skin about three times a
day to keep the area clean. If
the eye is involved, we usu-
ally recommend artificial
tears three to four times a
day to keep it as comfortable
as possible. Topical steroid
eye drops are occasionally
helpful as well.
Acetominophen with or
without codeine is some-
times required during the
first two weeks as pain may
be severe. In addition,
depression can be quite com-
mon during the initial phase
of infection, so an antide-
pressant may be prescribed.


Antidepressants have been
found to also help with pos-
therpetic neuralgia as well.
Shingles is contagious for
children and adults who have
not had chicken pox, and can
be spread by inhalation.
Pregnant women who have
not had chicken pox must
exercise extreme caution in
avoiding contact with a shin-
gles patient.

'Rabbit food' will have you hopping


Question: My son has
anger issues along with
depression so he takes
Wellbutrin (bupropion). He
has high blood pressure so he
takes metoprolol. He doesn't
sleep well now, so he uses
Ambien. He's only 28, and
I'm worried that he's already
on so much medicine. His
diet is very unhealthy and he
doesn't believe in "rabbit
food." Please help me advise
my son.
C.W., Boise, Idaho
Answer: I vote for more
"rabbit food" because it
won't clog up his arteries the
way processed fatty foods do.
Besides, fruits and veggies
won't embed his body with
more "anger" the way animal
foods might.
Pharmacies frequently dis-
pense the trio of drugs your
son takes- antidepressant,
sleep aid and blood pressure
pill. Unfortunately, too many
Americans have come to
think it's normal to take vari-
ous prescriptions for multiple
'conditions,' which I suspect
stem from nutritional defi-
ciencies in some cases.
Bupropion (Wellbutrin)
improves mood by lifting two
brain chemicals, dopamine
and norepinephrine. In this
country, antidepressants have
to carry a "black box warn-
ing" because these drugs
sometimes increase suicidal
thoughts in patients younger
than 25. His blood pressure
pill is a drug mugger of
melatonin (a sleep hormone)
and so it could be worsening

his insomnia.
Between his medicine, and
diet, it's not a surprise that
your son needs Ambien to
sleep. The lack of healthy
foods in his diet has caused
atherosclerosis and inflam-
mation in his body, hence the
blood pressure medicine. In a
few months, he'll need medi-
cine for acid reflux and high
cholesterol. In a couple of
years, he'll be on diabetic
drugs and pain pills. See
where he's headed with this?
You're a kind and loving
mom, that's clear. But you
can't make your son choose
health over sickness. He has
to make that decision, and
soon.
If he won't eat better,
maybe he'd consider dietary
supplements. For example,
the mineral magnesium. It
occurs naturally in dark
green leafy vegetables like
salads, broccoli, chard, kale
and other green "rabbit food"
that your son doesn't eat. So
it shouldn't come as a shock
to learn that magnesium
helps normalize blood pres-
sure, improve mood and
sleep. Without enough mag-


nesium, a person could
develop depression, irritabili-
ty, insomnia, high blood
pressure (sound familiar?)
and PMS, panic attacks,
OCD, phobias, muscle pain,
cramps and tics.
. I like "rabbit food"
because it's a good source of
other minerals, plus all the B
vitamins. Amazing but true,
the Bs also happen to reduce
blood pressure, inflammation
and heart attack risk. They
help your brain produce
happy brain chemicals and
fewer angry ones.
Just remind your son that
medicine may mask his
symptoms temporarily, but
his decline will progress if he
doesn't start grazing on ,
greens like hares do.
He needs to replenish some
missing, essential nutrients.
If he's up for a second opin-
ion, seek a naturopath, holis-
tic physician or nutritionist to
shed more light on the sub-
ject.

Did You Know?
Some blood pressure meds
are 'drug muggers' of mela-
tonin, leading to insomnia:,
Atenolol, metoprolol, pin-
dolol, propranolol, labetolol,
etc.

Strange-Gordon follows 'Flash' to the pros


By DAN HOEHNE
datiel.hotenil'@n,,ewi'ssltn .cim
Another Highlands County
product is heading to profes-
sional baseball as Devaris
Strange-Gordon, son of for-
mer Red Devil and current
Phillie reliever Thomas
Gordon, -agreed to terms
Monday with the Los Angeles
Dodgers after being selected
in the fourth round, 127th
overall, of the amateur draft
Thursday, June 5.
A two-sport standout at
Avon Park, in baseball as well
as basketball, Strange-Gordon
had a stellar freshman year at
Southeastern University in
Lakeland, batting .378 With
44 RBI, 45 stolen bases and
I1 runs scored in 59 games.
He transferred to Seminole
'Community College, but did-
n't play this past season,
instead spending time with his
father in Phillies spring train-
'ing, hitting in the cage and
honing his skills.
According to the
iPhiladelphia Daily News, the
elder Gordon said he had
'spent hours on the phone over
:the past 7 or 8 months, work-
ing his contacts in the game to
vouch for his son and set up
tryouts.
"I had heard that there was
|a really good chance he was
'going to be drafted, I had
heard there was a really good
chance he'd be in the top 10
'[rounds]," Gordon was quoted
in the Daily News piece. "But
ito be totally honest with you
guys, I wasn't absolutely sure.
I knew his talent and where
he'd come from, and with his
character being tested what
type of person he was. But
that still doesn't get you draft-
ed."
And all this, from someone

after being drafted in the fourth round Thursday.


who never even played in the
Dixie Leagues or any form of
youth ball until his junior year
in high school.
Strange-Gordon's first love
was basketball and at every
turn he rebuked his father's
efforts to interest him in base-
ball.
"I always told my dad I did-
n't like baseball because it
was boring," Devaris was
quoted as saying in the
Philadelphia News-Journal.
And don't think it's just a


matter of Devaris getting a
chance because of his last
name and bloodlines.
Prior to the draft, a veteran
major league scout projected
him going in the first ten
rounds.
And as then head coach
Jason Beck at Southeastern
was quoted in the News-
Journal article, "He's not one
to cash in his dad's name, but
in reality, he's got to rely on it
a bit," Beck said. "If he was
your normal athlete, he might


not get looked at. [Gordon's
name] is going to open the
door. But he has the tools. 1
think he has major-league
speed. He will wow you every
day. The more you see him,
the more you believe in him.
"He made a great play up
the middle, a 360 spin in the
hole. and I said to my assis-
tant coach, 'He got it. One
week, and he got it,' said
Beck. who made Devaris the
starting shortstop. "We were
fortunate to get him. If he


played baseball his whole life,
he would've played some-
where else."
Although, the elder Gordon
certainly is aware of how the
position he has attained has
proven a benefit for his son.
"I'm so grateful and
blessed to be in this position
for my son," he said in the
News-Journal article. "I think
about my dad. It was hard for
him to take me to a tryout
camp, but the Pirates had a
camp in Sanford, Fla. To see it


'For me, with my

son, I've just been

overwhelmed by it.'

THOMAS GORDON
Phillies reliever

on his face, that someone else
recognized that his son could
play the game, it was like,
wow. For me, with my son,
I've just been overwhelmed
by it."


Dixie Pitching Machine District 8 Tournament



Americans head to state

Boys in blue sweep to District 8 title with 14-7 win over Okeechobee


SEBRING In what
might be seen as a Civil War
battle in the heart of Dixie,
it was American against
American as the Union col-
ored Sebring
Americans wori going Sebi
away, 14-7, over their
Okeechobee counter-
parts.
The Americans Okeec
from down Hwy. 98
jumped out to the
early lead and built it
to 4-1.
But Sebring chipped back
with a run in the third on a
Jace Lewis RBI single.
Then in the fourth, the
Blue bloods erased the


deficit entirely and took a 6-
4 lead.
Everett Hurst singled and
did some daring baserun-
ning to score on a bunt sin-
gle by Gabe Gomez.
ring Gomez stole a base
and scored on Seth
Hamilton's single to
tie it and the lead
hobee came when Dalton
Baker's hard rap was
misplayed a couple
of times, allowing
both Hamilton and
Baker to come all the way
around.
But Okeechobee wasn't
done battling yet, respond-
ing with two runs in the fifth


to tie it 6-6.
That's when Sebring was
like Sherman charging
Atlanta, as they exploded
for eight runs in the bottom
of the frame.
Hamilton and Hunter
Martinez each had an RBI,
while Baker and Scott
Hamilton both added two in
the inning.
Okeechobee would
scratch for one in the sixth,

Outdoing Dad, rare, but


one Junior stands out


With the news of Devaris
Strange-Jackson following in
father Thomas Gordon's foot-
steps into major league base-
ball, it got me thinking about
father-son combinations that
have achieved the feat of
reaching the bigs.
More than 100 father-son
combos have done so, and
not to diminish Devaris'
chances, by and large it's
been rare that the sons out-
shone the dads.
There are some exceptions,
of course, such as Danny
Tartabull having a bit longer
and more productive career
than his dad, Jose.
He alo had an appearance
on Seinfeld, which in and of
itself adds to his career.
Nick Swisher has already
had a better career than his
dad, Steve,'who I remember
as a Cubs catcher way back
when who was, like most
Cubs were way back then.
But any true baseball afi-
cionado will know that
George Sisler's sons, Dave
and Dick, couldn't live up to
dad's career.
Same with Pete Rose's
son, Pete Jr., which in some
ways is a good thing.
As nice a career as Brian
McRae had, papa Hal's was
certainly the more estab-
lished.
You've heard of Yogi
Berra, but not so much Dale
Berra.
Aaron and Brett Boone
had themselves decent
enough careers in the bigs,
but their father Bob at one
time held records as a catch-
er.
Prince Fielder looks likely
to surpass Cecil's big league


And Another
Thing...

totals, but it's too early in his
career.
But the two most notable
ones, to me, of the sons bet-
tering their fathers are Barry
Bonds and Ken Griffey Jr.
And these are no small
feats in that, Bobby Bonds
and Ken Griffey Sr. were All-
Star caliber players in their
careers.
Barry actually started out
as a player very similar to his
pop combining speed and
power to steal bases and put
up good power numbers.
That's before Barry's body
exploded as did his stats.
In the Griffey's case, they
weren't real similar as play-
ers, although some of their
stats are surprisingly so.
Currently Junior is in his
20th season, while Senior
played 19.
Pops had a career .296
average, while Junior entered
this season at .290.
Both could steal a base as
Senior stole 200 and Junior
has 184.
But while Ken Sr. was a
good hitting, good fielding
outfielder on those Big Red
Machine teams in Cincinnati,

JUNIOR
Continued from 1C
lie was- more of a top of the
order guy.
Junior, from day one, was
a middle of the order batter,
having just joined the 6000
home run club and having
driving in more than twice as
many runs as his dad did.
If the youngster hangs
around for two or three more
years, he could join the 3,000
hit club as well, something
his dad ended up more than
800 hits away from.
But that also got me to


thinking about that 600 home
run club, once the exclusive
domain of'Aaron, Ruth and
Mays.
The bloated Bonds crashed
the party as did Sammy Sosa
.-kind of painting it a bit in
many minds.
But one moniker that was
given Griffey, the Junior,
early in his career was 'The
Natural.'
And in this age of steroid
suspicion running rampant,
it's kind of appropriate to
think of him that way.
In a small way, bringing
some semblance of order


back to the exclusive club.
And much like Ted
Williams, who lost parts of
five seasons fighting in wars,
Griffey's numbers would be
even more astronomical had
he been able to avoid injuries
that took chunks out of four
seasons.
Junior not only outdid his
dad, but he could well have ,
outdone everyone which
would have been nice.
