The Sebring

vs. Sun 'N

Lake sewer

border war
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEV
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
Q: What triggered the dis-
agreement between the City
of Sebring and the Sun 'N
Lake of Sebring Improve-
ment District?
A: As outlined by Bud
Whitlock, president of
Sebring's city council, in a let-
ter 'to Michael Wright, county
administrator, the city had
entered into a written agree-
ment with Advanced
Developers, LLC in Sept.
2007, when the company was
preparing to build an assisted
living facility at 4029
Schumacher Road, an unincor-
porated part of the county; the
city would provide water,
sewer and fire protection to the
facility and in exchange the
facility would, when Sebring's
west boundary reached it, be
annexed into the city.
In July 2008, the county
informed Sebring that an inter-
local agreement was needed
and that an application for a
Community Development
Block Grant, which would
cover the cost of the sewer and
water hook-ups as well as turn
lanes into the property, had
been submitted to the state.
At the Aug. 5 city council
meeting, the council agreed to
several changes in. an other-
wise boilerplate interlocal
agreement. Among the
changes Sebring wanted was
to not be responsible for con-
struction overruns.
The director of SNL's direc-
tor of public works, Julian
Deleon, was at that meeting.
Between Aug. 5 and 12 -
the next county commission
meeting SNL submitted its
own interlocal agreement with
the county; It offered water and
sewer service to the developer
for a less expensive connection
fee, citing closer proximity.
The county commissioners
(C. Guy Maxcy was not pres-
ent) voted 3-1 to accept the
SNL interlocal agreement,
which- had no customized
restrictions or requests, over
that of Sebring.
In effect that awards the
assisted living facility's sewer
and water infrastructure to
SNL.

Now that rains have returned to near-normal

near-normal levels of annoyance.
The blood-suckers mosquitoes, not politi-

Tuesday's meeting of county commissioners.
Parks and Recreation Director Vickie Pontius
briefed the commissioners on the situation at
hand, from the last spraying program after the
2004 hurricanes to a follow-up study confirm-
ing the presence of mosquitoes to current cost
estimates for eradication.
She received quotes for aerial spraying at
$48,500 to cover "the middle of the county" or

kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Heartland
Idol's fifth season opens at 6
p.m. Thursday on the Circle in
downtown Sebring.
It's, been a rough year for
the Idol family, explained Don
Elwell one-half of the emcee
duo that includes'. David
Flowers.
From death and illness to
small-town scandal and
intrigue, Heartland Idol's
organizers have shared in the
trials and tribulations that
have tested their community.
"This brings a little sense of
normalcy to our lives," Elwell
said. "That moment when you
get to the top of the stage and
look out over the crowd, that's
what I'm waiting for."
Since the last Heartland
Idol concluded, Greater
Sebring Chamber of
Commerce returned Idol to
founder Diana Walker, Elwell
was laid off from Kenilworth
Lodge and title sponsors Bob
and Nancy Trautman walked
away.
A lot has changed.

Accidental fire destroys mobile home in Avon Park


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
AVON PARK A single-
wide mobile home was rav-
aged by fire early Tuesday,
forcing the owner to find
shelter elsewhere.
When firefighters from the
Avon Park Fire Department
arrived, the structure was
already more than halfway
involved, said APFD Capt.
Steve Marquart.
"We had the state fire mar-
shal investigate it, and it was
determined to be accidental,"
he said. "It was a mobile
home fire they burn pretty
quick."
The fire was under control
after about 15 minutes of
battling the blaze that started
only a mile from the APFD
station.


The structure, located in
the Southland Court mobile
home park at 115 North
Florida Ave., was a total loss.
"I went to the store and
when I came back there was
a lady that told me that my
trailer was on fire," said
Clara Walker, who owned the
trailer. "I got back and sure
enough, it was."
Walker was gone only 20
minutes, she said.
"It was possibly electrical,
probably starting in the liv-
ing room area," Marquart
said.
Walker said there was no
insurance on her trailer "of
any kind."
She lost "everything you
would have in a housee" she
said. "My son had a

SEBRING Candidate
for Highlands County Clerk
of Court Mary Wilson has
announced she will be tak-
ing a leave of absence from
her duties at the clerk of

campaign headquarters at
155 West Center Ave. just
off the circle in downtown
Sebring.
The campaign will kick
off with an open house at
the new headquarters from
4- p.m. on Friday.
When asked if there had
been problems because her
competition also worked in
the clerk's office, Wilson
said she had decided to take
her leave of absence
because she wanted to
ensure her co-workers
would not feel any pressure
to show support for one of
the candidates.
"I don't want anyone to
feel pressured because they
do or do not support me.
That would go against
everything I have been
working to improve in our
county government,"
Wilson said.

Leadership
Highlands


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.comn
SEBRING Local resi-
dent Roswitha Browne speaks
to her 'kids' on a regular basis
- but these kids of hers are
nearly 15,000 miles away.
The children on the other
end of the phone live in
Africa, specifically in the
country of Tanzania.
"I went down there last
year in December and spent a
month in one of the orphan-
ages and took care of the kids
and I saw the tremendous
need," she said. "They need
for everything. For education,
even for food."
Since then Browne has
tried hard to improve the lives
of her far-away friends, but
ha, miet plenty of roadblocks
on the way.
One time she tried to bring
as many things with her as she
could on the airline to help
them out only to get hit
with a hefty $250 fee from
the airline for an overweight
bag.
"That's a lot of money,"
she said. "I could have done
better. This time I want to
take money and put it where
it's needed the most."
Then Browne saw a news-
paper article that introduced
her to the idea of starting a
non-profit foundation to help
the orphans and other needy
children get the essentials
they need.
She called the president of
the Make it Count founda-
tion, Kaylene Walz, whose
foundation was the topic of
the article.
Walz started her foundation
in 2006 to help remodel
health clinics for the citizens
of the bay islands of
Honduras after she took a trip
there to volunteer with anoth-
er group.
"Initially she was just try-
ing to pick my brain on how
to start a foundation, (but)
why should she go through all
that," Walz asked. "We joined
forces to work together."
Browne is now part of the
foundation so she can raise
money for the young
Tanzanians at the orphanage,
who are between ages 4 and
8, and others that find it
impossible to afford high

"I would like a program for

cares about an education and
who needs it," Browne said,


explaining her goals of part-
nering with the foundation.
With the unemployment i n
Tanzania rate near 40 percent,
an education is needed to
compete for the small number
of jobs there are, she said.
"So many want to better
themselves but they just can't
do it," she said. "If you can't
go to high school there is no
job."
The cost to sponsor a child
in the orphanage, which she
also hopes to do through the.
foundation, is $50 a month.
"Those children have noth-

EDITORIAL & OPINION


The United States
Mint has
launched a cam-
paign to promote
usage of the dollar
coin as an alternative
to paper bills.
The coins could save billions in
printing costs, if embraced by the
public. But that won't happen
unless the government does what
it has been unwilling to do in the
past: phase out the dollar bill.
Dollar coins will remain little
more than novelties and collec-
tor's items until that happens.
There are good reasons to
switch. The General Accounting
Office estimates that more than
$500 million a year would be
saved by going paperless with dol-
lars. The coins cost more to pro-
duce but they last 30 years, com-
pared with 21 months for paper
bills. The coins also can be melted
down and recycled into new coins.
Dollar bills taken out of circula-
tion are destroyed.
Thi s the third attempt in less
than three decades to get the
American public to buy the idea of
a $1 coin. In 1979, a silver dollar
featuring Susan B. Anthony was
issued with lots of fanfare. The
public dismissed it as too easily
mistaken for a quarter. The
Treasury tried again in 2000 with
a gold-colored dollar coin featur-
ing the Native American guide
Sacagawea. The public has been
indifferent to it. About 110 million
of those coins remain in storage.
The government is trying again
with a series of $1 presidential
coins that began circulating in
February. They feature past presi-
dents and will be released over the
next decade, similar to the suc-
cessful marketing of the state
quarters. The new presidential
dollars are the same size and color
of the Sacagawea dollar.


Grand Rapids, Mich.; Austin,
Texas; Charlotte, N.C.; and
Portland, Ore., are the test com-
munities for the government's first
promotional campaign designed to
increase circulation of the dollar
coin. Local retailers and banks are
part of the plan to get the coins in
people's hands by giving them as
change and readily accepting them
for purchases.
A PR campaign to push the
coins is fine, but it most likely will
be a waste of time, energy, effort
and money as long as the $1 bill
remains an option for Americans
comfortable with cloth currency.
History can be the guide here. The
Mint should have coupled its dol-
lar coin campaign with one pro-
moting the little-used $2 bill,
while also asking Congress to
withdraw $1 bills from circula-
tion. That could have soothed peo-
ple concerned about having a
small-denomination greenback
available for use.
The United States is one of the
few countries with a $1 bill. Other
nations, such as Canada, Japan,
Australia and those in the
European Union have phased out
small-denomination bills and
replaced them with coins. Canada
replaced its dollar bill with a coin
in 1987 (the.Loonie). It followed
that with a $2 coin (the Toonie).
After initial grumbling, Canadians
have accepted 'both. Experiences
in other countries indicates that it
takes two to three years for the
public to adapt to such a switch.
Canada printed its last dollar in
1989 and instructed banks to take
the bills out of circulation when
they were received as deposits or
payments. Until the United States
has the metal to make a similar
commitment, the dollar coin will
not gain a foothold with the pub-
lic.

Art festival needs to stay
in local hands
Editor:
When I retired from teaching I
became a crafter, making wire wrap
and beaded jewelry. Last year I went
to my first craft show as an
exhibitor, the Highlands Art Festival.
This show was such an integral part
of the Sebring community that I had
deliberately waited to make it my
first show. Little did I dream that it
would also be my last Sebring festi-
val.
I am deeply grieved that this
year's festival has been cancelled.
Sebring, despite all efforts to make
itself a big city, has always main-
tained the lovely charm of a small
town. The Highlands Art Festival
personified this charm by welcoming
all local artists and crafters as partic-
ipants. It was a wonderful slow, full
of warmth and camaraderie as you
greeted and spoke with friends and
strangers alike. Crafters loved the
show because of its reasonable entry
fee, and because it came right before
the holiday season, when visitors
were beginning to seriously shop for
Christmas.
Both crafters and show visitors
alike are upset that this wonderful
family and community event seems
destined to become a part of the
past. Even more disturbing is the
information that a show put on by
Howard Alan will be replacing our
local community event. When I first
began looking at shows I investigat-
ed a Howard Alan event. At the time
(and at present) I did not meet the
long list of requirements exhibitors
must meet to participate in Mr.
Alan's events. Namely, I did not
have a solid white canopy, nor did I
have professionally made table
skirts.
I also decided not to participate
because of the $200 entry fee for Mr.
Alan's Sebring event. It is my under-
standing, although I have not sub-
stantiated this information, that one
reason the Art League has chosen to
go with Mr. Alan is that he has a fol-
lowing.
Does this information come from
an independent source or as I sus-
pect from Mr. Alan himself? I'm
sure that Mr. Alan does have a group
of professional crafters that follow
him week by week to .each of his
events. However I know for a fact
that Mr. Alan also has crafters that
avoid his shows. I know this because


I am one of them.
... I greatly fear that Mr. Alan's
rigid requirements and high entry
fees will keep most of our local
artists and crafters from participat-
ing. ... I understand that there is a
chance the festival could be saved
and put on this year, but it would
take fast action on the part of an
organization. ... Call the art league
or chamber of commerce and ask for
details on holding this festival. ...
Perhaps if enough of us volunteer to
work and let the art league know
how important this show is to us,
they will even consider sponsoring it
again. Let's not let this event fade
into the past without any effort to
keep it a part of our community.

Purpose of paradox
intentionally set in stone
Editor:
The United States as the original
13 colonies was to be a republic, not
a democracy. So, as for the coming
taxations upon the religious estab-
lishments, will eliminate several
practices for faith or hope the time
of Kashmir is not far off. The effects
from the two traditional founding
religions collide into the battle of
tyranny and freedom. Order out of
chaos is what the eye beholds. This
was inevitable as America is the
melting pot of everything good and
evil. The purpose of the paradox was
willfully and intentionally set in
stone. I will speak no more about
this. Check your history.

Assessment is tool to
get money in long run
Editor:
On Thursday, Aug. 28 my hus-
band, son and I attended the
Sebring City Council meeting to
voice our opinions on the fire assess-
ment proposal. Our intention was to
state our case as to the burden it
would put on our income. As owners
of apartment buildings we would be
expected to pay what a homeowner
would pay per unit. At 100 percent it
would be more than $5,000. With a
25 percent vacancy factor since
January, passing the cost on to our
renters was not an option.
After hearing representives of
churches and nursing homes and

other organizations that help the peo-
ple of this city to live with some
form of dignity plead their cases we
felt a little guilty. We will have to
cut back on some of the things we
expected to do in retirement but can
still make payments necessary to
continue a fairly comfortable
lifestyle. They were trying to sur-
vive.
The council's answers to these
pleas were a steadfast "I'm sorry it's
a burden, but you use the service
and now we want everybody to pay."
They did in the end admit that the
model provided them by the paid
consultants had flaws and needed
adjustments, but no adjustments
were made. Instead they appeased
the crowd by passing a proposal of 1
percent not to exceed 10 percent
along with a promise of a lower
millage rate. They explained this
balanced out so that most people
would be paying the same or in
some cases even less than last year.
They rationalized that at 1 percent
($4 or $5) would not be a burden on
the institutions. They freely admitted
they did not need more money.
So what was the point of passing
an assessment that clearly was not
going to add to the revenue of the
city? It's this. The state is trying to
cut back on allowing cities to
impose assessments. If assessments
are not already in place by an
upcoming date, a city will not be
able to initiate an assessment. The
amount of the assessment is not
important. That can be changed at
any time. So although the city is fine
and does not need the money now it


was important for them to put this
assessment in place so at a future,
time they could drop the fire depart-
ment from their city budget and
assess us for 100 percent of the cost.
That would free up the fire depart-
ment money, $2,100,000, now in the
budget for what ever they deem the
city needs.
It is a tool to be able to get more
money in the long run. The aim of
the council was to get an assessment
in place and they did.
Shame on them! At a time when
everyone needs to do the best they
can within a fixed budget and be
forced to decide what our real needs
are the city chose to insure them-
selves with a means for business as
usual at our future expense.

Cooperative help was
much appreciated
Editor:
Once again, Glades has done a
stellar job in restoring power under
extremely adverse conditions. The
management, staff, line crews, sup-
port folks and outside people who
came to help (the cooperative way)
Withlacoochee River Elec. Coop.,
Glades Utility Services, Lewis Tree
service, and many more, are to be
commended for their untiring efforts
on behalf of our members. As one of
the employees said "we plan the
work and work the plan." With an
attitude like this anything is possi-
ble.


Thanks to you all.

Attention, efficiency
are comforting
Editor:
Rarely does one take the time to
write a complimentary message I
feel obligated to do so. Recently, I
experienced an "out patient proce-
dure" at Florida Hospital Heartland',
Division and was totally impressed
with the attention, efficiency and
pleasantness from everyone
involved. None of us "wants" to go
there, so their fine attitude is certain-
ly appreciated!

Clarification: In a letter published
Aug. 27 written by Ed Dickerson an
error was made. The paragraph in
question should have read: "The last
example I have is the way she han-
dled the surplus money at the end of
a fiscal year. I'm not sure if she actu-
ally went through with it or not, but
she was giving the surplus money as
bonuses within her department, and
to me this is the worst kind of deci-
sion for tax dollars. This money could
have been used for supplies or equip-
ment for the next fiscal year. This is
an example of why citizens say keep
costs down, if you give money as
bonuses most of us feel that is an
unauthorized use of our tax dollars."
We apologize for.the error and
appreciate the opportunity to set the
record straight.

American Party
switches locales
SEBRING The American
Party of Florida will have its
September meeting on
Thursday, but in a new loca-
tion and at a new time. The
group will gather in the back
room at the Beef O'Brady's
in the Sebring Plaza shopping
center.
The topic for this week's
meeting will be plans for a
membership drive. A number
of the members of the party
had switched to vote for con-
servative candidates in the
recent primary elections, APF
Highlands County Chairman
Rob Home said in addition to
those members now switch-
ing back to the APF, he is
hoping there are others who
are sufficiently dissatisfied
with the current political situ-
ation they too might join the
ranks.
The Thursday meeting
won't be the only event this
month at Beef O'Bradys, the
group is trying to arrange
another screening there.
"We would like to
show 'FahrenHYPE 9/11,'
which is another look at
the Sept. 11 attack on the
United States and refutes
some of the other films
about it," Horne said. No


Counseling sessions

open doors to

recovery possibilities


Editor's note: Every
September, towns, counties
and states around the nation
observe National Alcohol
and Drug Addiction
Recovery Month. This year,
organizers want to recog-
nize the impact that real
people and real stories have
on recovery, and celebrates
those who have worked to
advance the treatment and
recovery landscape. The
News-Sun hopes to bring
some of those local stories
to its readers.

News-Sun staff
SEBRING Counselors
dealing with substance
abuse are seeing more and
more cases, but they say
that could also be that peo-
ple are no longer afraid to
recognize they need help
and will ask for it.
Mel Williams, manager
of the offender program at
Tri-County Rehabilitations
and with the Jail Alternative
to Substance Abuse pro-
gram, will join Charlie
Nelson for a day of counsel-
ing sessions Thursday at the
Highlands County Health
Department. "We will be
there for anyone to come in
and talk to if they think they
have a problem or if they
think a loved one has a
problem," Williams said.
The men will ask questions
to find out more about fam-
ily history, lifestyle patterns
and anything they can to
help them get a handle on
what kind of help is actual-
ly needed.
Highlands County can
offer outpatient treatment
through a number of facili-
ties as a residential treat-
ment program through
Florida Hospital Heartland
Division.
Williams said they are
seeing more and more peo-
ple with substance abuse or
co-occurring problems. Co-
occurring identifies those
with a mental health prob-
lem as well as substance
(drug or alcohol) abuse. "It
used to be taboo to admit
yqu had a mental health
problem. People are no
longer ashamed to ask for
help with their mental
health," Williams said,
explaining why those num-


bers may be higher. Mental
health concerns can include
depression and bi-polar dis-
order among other things.
These sessions, he said,
will also allow counselors
to talk to people about men-
tal health issues.
If you have any ques-
tions or concerns regarding
recovery or addiction and
wish to speak with someone
privately, Drug Free
Highlands will be hosting
counseling session at the
following locations
throughout the month:
9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Thursday at Highlands
County Health Department,
George Avenue, Sebring.
This will be staffed by
JASA (Jail Alternative to
Substance Abuse).
9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Thursday, Sept. 11 at
Florida Hospital Daybreak,
Lake Placid. This will be
staffed by Kathryn
Doddridge of Daybreak
Behavioral Health.
9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Thursday, Sept. 18 at Tri-
County Human Services
Highlands Outpatient, 100
W. College Drive Building
E, Avon Park.
9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Thursday, Sept. 25 at
Florida Hospital Daybreak,
Sebring offices. This will be
staffed by a counselor from
the Florida Center for Dual
Diagnosis.
The theme for this year's
National Alcohol and Drug
Addiction Recovery Month
is to "Join the Voices for
Recovery: Real People,
Real Recovery," and spread
the word that addiction is a
medical illness and that
treatment is effective and
recovery is possible. By
getting involved, more peo-
ple on a path of recovery
can be helped to lead more
fulfilling lives.
Watch the News-Sun this
month to learn about local
people who are celebrating
their recovery.

One injured in wreck on Heron Street


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
Damon Bradley, left, of Sebring comforts his distraught wife Pamela Tuesday morning during
a minor car crash on Heron Street in Sebring. According to Pamela Bradley, she and her
husband were driving slowly through the neighborhood looking at houses for sale. Mrs.
Bradley was driving her Jeep Liberty down Dove Avenue and came to the stop sign at Heron
Street, when she underestimated the speed of the oncoming vehicle and thought she had
enough time to cross over Heron and continue down Dove. The other driver was knocked
unconscious and was transported to Highlands Regional Medical Center in Sebring.

allows the state to more
easily mobilize employees,
law enforcement personnel
and other resources. The
governor said residents
should prepare for possible
flash floods and winds up
to 111 mph.
Hanna appears to be
tracking to the north,
Henley said, and is expect-
ing to dump more wind
and rain on central Florida.
Like county emergency
management personnel,
residents should take this
time to prepare them-
selves, their families and
their businesses by draft-
ing and practicing emer-
gency plans and stocking
up on food and supplies.
The county's emergency
management Web site,
ww.hceoc.org, serves as
a one-stop information
clearing house with tips on
planning, supplies, evacu-
ation routes and more.
"More of the public
stood up and took notice
with Fay," Henley said,
explaining Tropical Storm
Ernesto about a year and a
half ago blew through
faster. "Ernesto was ...
here and gone within 48
hours from the time it was
announced it would have
an impact on our area."
Fay provided Highlands
with a five-day head's up.
A key preparation note,
Henley added, was that gas
stations here are supplied
by Tampa ports with a 24-
hour window.
That means topping off
tanks and generators sever-
al days in advance helps
the county as a whole
thwart fuel shortages,
which arise from logistics
rather than decreased sup-
ply.
FEMA regional admin-
istrator Phil May said the
agency will send federal
liaisons and disaster
response teams to Georgia,
South Carolina and North
Carolina on Wednesday to
prepare for Hanna.
FEMA is already pour-
ing supplies and resources,
like search and rescue
teams, into the region. And
it's scrambling to move
some supplies from the
Gulf Coast back toward
the Atlantic seaboard.
"We'll be moving things
that may have been in
position for Gustav back
this way in case of Hanna,"
said May, who is based in
Atlanta. "There's a lot of
moving parts."
He said a team dis-
patched to Florida to deal
with the remnants of
Tropical Storm Fay will
stay there to plan for Ike,
which could threaten
Florida after Hanna passes.

The Associated Press con-
tributed to this report.


County commission mulls

over mosquito problem

miles of roads.
"Where will this money
come from?" Commissioner
C. Guy Maxcy wanted to
know, explaining he's been
receiving calls and com-
plaints from around the coun-
ty.
County Administrator
Michael Wright said it would
likely come from the reserve
for contingency fund.
A survey of residents circa
2001 asked if they wanted a
comprehensive program
including larva-cide, adult
spraying, and preventive
measures, Pontius said.
The $700,000 program
would have cost individual
homeowners about $38.
"The overwhelming
response was 'yes,'" she said,
explaining respondents want-
ed mosquitoes eradicated but
didn't want to pay for it.
- Alleyne, said mosquitoes
have a life cycle of a few
weeks, the females are hungry
for blood (literally) as soon as
they hatch.
Eggs, which thrive in wet
conditions, take about 24
hours to hatch, he said.
With this in mind,
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart questioned whether
isolated spraying was enough
and asked for a big-picture
estimate of spraying costs.
In addition, she said there
were personal preventative
measures residents could
take, which Alleyne later
identified during a phone
interview.
"It's primarily a water
issue," he said. "The female
is interested in having a blood
meal immediately after hatch-
ing. Then afterwards, she lays
the eggs."
Therefore, homeowners
should investigate their prop-
erty for pockets of water and

remove items such as tires
and unused pots that hold
water.
Even certain plants are
ideal mosquito broods, he
noted.
Mosquitoes are attracted to
carbon dioxide, the gas all
mammals expend when
exhaling.
If possible, Alleyne said,
avoid activities that cause
sweat or wear appropriate
protective clothing to cover
the skin.
DEET is useful in repelling
mosquitoes, but should not be
applied by children, who
instead should receive help
from an adult.
Vitamin B, garlic and
bananas as natural barriers is
a fallacy, he said.
Before applying DEET or
pesticides, Alleyne suggested
reading labels and under-
standing any restrictions-.
. As-aras Highlands County
is concerned, he said, the
mosquitoes here appear to be
of the nuisance variety and
not deadly.


Q&A: The Sebring-Sun 'N Lake utilities dispute


Continued from page 1A

Q: Why does SNL want to
deliver these services?
A: SNL's general manager,
Al Grieshaber Jr., said
Monday, "I think it is very
simple. We want to do what is
best for residences and busi-
nesses in Highlands County.
We are looking for fair compe-
tition. We just want to be able
to compete. It is not an exclu-
sive area."

Q: So if SNL can deliver
for less, why shouldn't they?
A: Sebring has three argu-
ments, one with which SNL
strongly disagrees.
1. Sewers and their mainte-'
nance are so expensive econo-
mists consider it a waste of
taxpayer dollars to build too
many competing treatment
plants, or criss cross pipelines.
Sewers, in other words, don't
fit well into the typical com-


petitive business model.
2. The City of Sebring will
eventually annex the assisted
living facility. When that hap-
pens having sewer and water
from one legal entity, deliv-
ered to another, could become
complicated.
3. When SNL was created,
an article addressing water
and sewer systems was made a
part of the code. It states SNL
shall own and "regulate the
use of sewers and the supply
of water within the district ...
and construct and operate con-
necting, intercepting or outlet
sewers ... or pipelines in,
along or under any streets ...
within or without the district,
when deemed necessary or
desirable by the board of
supervisors in accomplishing
the purposes of this article."
Sebring contends this
means SNL cannot lay pipe
outside its limits, except in the
case of efficiency, in which

energy, enthusiasm, their appetite, a few
greenbacks (for food, not admission) and
lawn chairs.
In addition to soda and water, Idol volun-
teers will sell hot-dogs, brauts, chili-cheese
nachos and the much-anticipated "Idol Dog."
At a foot in length and a 1/2 pound in heft,
the Idol Dog is a meal unto itself when topped
with the aforementioned chili and cheese.
At $3 a pop, you can buy one for the show
and another for later.
For all of the crooners, the most important
fact yet to be addressed is the prize money.
Idol is divided into three competitions:
Junior Idol for preteens and younger, Teen
Idol for teenagers and Heartland Idol for
adults 18 and older.
By the end of the contest, one champion
will be named in each division. Junior and
Teen champs will each receiving $500 gift
cards and adult Idols will receive $2,000 cash.
Lower amounts are paid through fifth place
in each division, Elwell said.
Gone is a requirement that the winners per-
form later to receive their full winnings. All
prize money will be paid at the conclusion of
the competitions. .,
Qualifying for Junior and Teens are the first
two shows and their finales will occur the
fourth week.
Adults will sing through Nov. 8, Veterans


case pipelines can leave the
district for a short distance,
but come back in again.
SNL contends the phrase
"within and without the dis-
trict" grants it permission to
expand its system. The district
has asked the county to revisit
the article and clarify the lan-
guage.

Q: What happens next?
A: The Sebring city council
has asked the county commis-
sion to reconsider its approval
of SNL's interlocal agreement,
and authorized the city attor-
ney, Robert Swain, to pursue
legal action if a negotiated set-
tlement cannot be reached.
Since then SNL approved a
resolution asking the county to
allow it to provide utility serv-
ice outside its boundaries.
Avon Park and Sebring
responded with resolutions
opposing SNL's perceived
aggressiveness.

The junior and teen contestants will take
center stage in Thursday's opening night of
the fifth season of Heartland Idol.

Day weekend.
While qualifying will be done a cappella,
semi-finals will center on a theme from a
Billboard Top 40 song during the contestant's
birth year to the Bee Gees.
Yes, the Bee Gees.
"That will definitely separate the men from
the boys," Elwell said.
All performances must be done in a manner
reflecting the original artists' style, he added.
Elwell suggested bringing signs, the home-
made variety, to show support for a favorite
artist.
"I've never had a sign," he joked.

Money problems can bring you together


Couples list money as one
of the top three reasons they
argue, so take care not to let
today's economic plunge take
your relationship down.
Whether you've lost your
job, picked up a second one to
meet rising costs, or found an
opportunity to help yourself
and others, your relationship
is bound to feel stressed. But
stress doesn't have to take a
threatening hold. It can bring
you closer together.
Instead of fighting each
other, you can team up to take
on the challenges. Just know-
ing you don't have to go it
alone can help you to main-
tain a positive attitude, which
determines, if not the out-
come, how you respond to it.
If you feel more responsi-
ble for finances than your
partner does, this is your
chance to share the load. And
if you sometimes feel guilty
for earning significantly less
than your partner, you have a
chance to take on more of the
weight, if only by cutting
some of the fat or offering
emotional support.
Try to say out loud what
you would normally hold
inside. Strip a layer of your
protective shell and let your
partner feel and know all of
you. The more you know
about each other, the more
opportunity you have to con-
nect and expand your intima-
cy, and the deeper the level on
which you connect, the deeper
the intimacy.
Talk about what you're
afraid of, strategize together
and stand together. What you
don't let tear you apart will
strengthen your bond.
Couples argue about money
because it's a sensitive sub-
ject, and they're uneasy just
saying what they really need
to say. If you're self-con-
scious about your puny sav-
ings, you might defend your


ego, rather than
explain that it's j
wounded. And itis
easier to make your-
self look good when
you shoot holes in
your partner, or at
least it seems that
way until your
partner strikes back,
and the meanness
makes you both look
like a couple of jack-
asses.


No need to add meanness
to financial upset or any other
upset. Face the challenges
together.
"The one thing you can't
take away from me is the way
I choose to respond to what
you do to me. The last of
one's freedoms is to choose
one's attitude in any given
circumstance," said Viktor
Frankl.
And as Frankl demonstrat-
ed so heroically, attitude is
enough to get us through
almost any hell and leave us
stronger than it found us.
Enough people tell me that

their partner is driv-
ing them crazy that
you'd think at least
half of us would be
crazy. But nobody
else can really drive
us crazy. They can -
and they do trigger
the madness of our
egos.
They also shed
some light on our
egos. Often we're


too caught up in the rage to
notice; but if we pay attention
to what gets triggered, we rec-
ognize it as something we
wantto get rid of and as a
result of getting rid of it,
we're better.
The more my sweetheart
knows about me, the more
likely he is to rub me or my
ego, as the case may be the
wrong way. Maybe we run

with years ago, the one person
I'm embarrassed to have
kissed. The embarrassment
stems from ego.
I can shrink away or get
defensive, or I can let my
guard down and tell my hus-
band what I'm feeling. If I
choose to tell him what I feel,
we grow closer.
When you're tempted to
tough out the financial storm
- or any of life's rain by
yourself, rise above being
tough. Anytime you're willing
to be vulnerable instead, you
can save yourself some dis-
connection.
Challenges don't drive you
apart if you let them bring
you together.

FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS


Sebring
Recreation Club
By Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING We have had
a good summer and now with
Labor Day passed and school
back in session let the activi-
ties of the club grow. Cards
will no longer be bridge only,
but you will see other games
played on different days.
Those interested in the Hobby
Club will find many things
from scrapbook to crafts that
happen Monday mornings.
The hall decor will change
from season to season. The
desk will be open so you can
stop with your questions, use
the library or reading room.
You may want to bring a
friend to practice shuffle-
board, or play ping-pong. It is
fun just to say hello to the
person that is on the desk that
day and then see what hap-
pens.
We sure miss our members
that have not been out to shuf-
fle lately: Sharon Rohman
with her back, Don Rohman
working nights, Ada Williams
with her shoulder, Ed
Williams with his leg. Winnie
Wells with her knee? Betty
Rizor with her knee? Larry
Stump and Virginia Stump.
Larry lost his get up and go


and Virginia with eye trouble.
If we listed all that were not
able at this time it would be
nearly the same length list as
those that did make it out. It
shows that we need more
shufflers and also some
younger ones.
We should all strive to get
one new person to shuffle
with us this year. Let us all
show that you do not need to
be old to be a good shuffler
but that you can be old and
make a good shuffler. We will
make the game grow at the
same time. Bring the person
as your guest.
Words or phrases that you
may hear used at the courts.
Bait: This is a good block
placed on an open board to
entice the opponent to go after
it in hopes he sticks so that
the baiter could then kitchen
his opponent and score at the
same time. Blast: Blasting
means shooting powerfully
hard. This is generally done to
avoid sticking. Board is in
the triangle. Clear The Board:
This means to clip or blast
everything on the board off.
Cooking a way of saying
you're in the kitchen. Drift:
The drift is the tendency of a
disc going to the side of the
court due to the slant of the
court.
It will not be long and John


Bushee will start shuffleboard
instructions at the club. Even
if you already play, you will
not believe how instructions
will help your game. This is
not a game of just straight
shooting on your part. One of
the very best shots that I have
seen is not a very good player
and she is happy with her
game the way it is.
Ed Straub as president
needs members to help with
ideas for your club. You will
find Ed playing cards, ping-
pong or on the courts playing
shuffleboard. Give him your
idea for something that you
would like to see in the club
agenda this year. Give Ed a
call with your idea or question
at 386-0245. It will not be
long and you can stop by the
desk and talk with him.
Tropical
Harbor
By Barbara Kelleher
LAKE PLACID Aug. 25
- Our coed coffee was hosted
by Clare and Maury Bloch
along with Joy and Duane
Dean who treated the resi-
dents to a delicious variety of
doughnuts to go along with
their beverage. They shared
this treat in honor of Clare's
birthday and Joy and Duane's
54th wedding anniversary.


Park Manager George Susco
told residents he was pleased
to see that most complied
with taking the measures nec-
essary in order to protect their
homes and property to avoid
any damage during Tropical
Storm Faye.
They are still working on
the screen room and the tree
company will resume planting
the palm trees. They plan on
checking water pipes through-
out the park; in some cases
they will have to be replaced.
Louise Smith told the resi-
dents that she needs coffee
makers for the month of
September,. Bonnie Allen vol-
unteered for the first week of
September.
Duane Dean told the group
that the pancake breakfast
will be cancelled for the
month of September until Bill
Butts is feeling better. Carol
Noel gave us her report of
people in the park in need of
our thoughts and prayers. Our
hearts go out to James and
Joanne Seiple whose daughter
Pam Schaefer passed away in
Colorado. Also Delores
Wassum, wife of Donald,
passed away in North
Carolina. -Others on our sick


list are Bill Butts, Mary Sue
Willeke, and Phyllis
Williams.
Sylvia Fitch told the group
that her husband John has
been transferred from
Sarasota and is now at the
rehab center in Lake Placid.
Carol has sign-up sheets for
all the above mentioned.
Ladies Day Out: We had 18
ladies present and all enjoyed
a lovely luncheon at the
Placid Lakes Country Club.
Lena Chapman and Brenda
Knoche were in charge of the
arrangements. The Mustangs
also had their lunch out on
this day. Andy Anderson was
in charge of the reservations.
He had 12 men sign up for the
luncheon, which was held at
Ming Tong's Chinese
Restaurant in Sebring.
Aug. 28 was the carry-in
dinner. This was a true
potluck supper. Tables were
all decorated and there was a
great variety of food, which
every one brought.
The committee gave out
five door prizes. One was a
$10 gift certificate for Publix.
John Chapman donated a
wood carving of a manatee
and hand-painted sea shells.


Rick Knoche presented two
framed photographed pictures
that he had taken. Marge
Perry donated two lovely
hand- decorated towels.
Everyone seemed to have a
great time.
Before ending the evening,
Marge Perry, who was chair-
man of the August committee,
wanted all to know who her
helpers were and asked each
to stand and be recognized.
They were Lena .Chapman,
Brenda Knoche and Luann
Steffen and thanks also go out
to the husbands who so will-
ingly assisted with the August
events the committee was in
charge of.

Labor Day fun means water games and barbecue

*idge Area Arc consumer Rene Herrera tries to sneak up on someone to get them with a
water gun while Ridge Area Arc Adult Day Training staff Betty Rowland attacks him from
behind with a water gun. Ridge Area Arc Behavioral Specialist Rick Zawlocki mans the dunk
tank without any defense. Staff and consumers enjoyed a Labor Day celebration last Friday
on the Ridge Area Arc main campus in Avon Park that was filled with lots of water fun to
keep everyone cool while they socialized and participated in recreational activities. The out-
door fun was complete with a dunk tank, water slide activity, squirt gun contest, water bal-
loon toss and snow cones and popcorn were served. Everyone enjoyed a free barbecue
lunch then danced the afternoon away with Art Bostick spinning tunes and doing various
dance contests.

Streaks sweeps


Avon Park again

Lady Devils show improvement,

but Sebring still a step ahead


News-Sun photos by DAN HOEHNE

county match up with Avon Park.


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK The Avon
Park Lady Devils volleyball
team continued to adjust their
game, but still dropped one to
the Sebring Lady Streaks 25-
18, 25-15, 25-12 in the first
district match-up of the regu-
lar season.
"Stephanie is a good
coach," said Sebring head
coach Venessa Sinness of first
year Lady Devil head coach
Stephanie Devlin. "She
adjusted to our play. Avon
Park came out strong on
defense tonight. This is a dif-
ferent team than what we saw
the last time we played them."
The two teams met in the


final of the Sebring Preseason
Classic last Thursday.
"Avon Park blocked well,
but we kept swinging,"
Sinness added. "The tip
worked for us, and I told the
girls to just keep swinging
and it paid off."
On the other side of the net,
Avon Park's Daija Barrett
came up with five blocks,
keeping the Sebring spikers
off balance for the first part of
the evening, helping the Lady
Devils fight hard before the
intensity dropped off.
But consistency and missed
assignments allowed the
Streaks to come out on top.
"Daija Barrett was a stand-

Brearnna late aemy taps
this one over the net for a
Lady Devil point, but
Sebring would come out on
top in the second meeting in
the young season between
the two teams.


I realize this might come
off as me bashing on a
rival, but that couldn't be
further from the truth.
While the Milwaukee
Brewers are, in fact, trying
to overtake my Cubs, I've
never really looked at them
as rivals.
Since they were original-
ly an American League
team, I kind of adopted
them as my fa orite AL
team way back when.
Since the move to the
Senior Circuit, and into
Chicago's division, there
have been great games, but
up until last year, never
really a threat from the
Brew Crew in the stand-
ings.
Besides with my long-
time support of them, it's
now become one of those,
"if we don't win it, I hope
they do" sort of situations.
But I have to call them
out on What they're trying
to do get a ruling over-
turned to retroactively get
CC Sabathia a no-hitter.
On Sunday, Sabathia
tossed a one-hitter in
Milwaukee's 7-0 win over
the Pirates.
But during the fifth
inning, a chopper was hit
between the pitcher's
mound and the third base
line.
Sabathia sprung off the
mound, got to the ball and
tried to bare-hand it before
making the throw to first.
At the time, the batter,
Andy LaRoche, looked to
be no more than a third of
the way down the line,
making it seem like a play
would have been easily
made except in his bare-


And Another
Stihinng.,. .
Dan Hoehne
handed attempt, Sabathia
never came up with the
ball.
As official scorers are
instructed to do, Bob Webb,
a 20-year veteran, quickly
posted his instinctual call, a
hit.
Scorers are then told they
can always look back at the
replay and reverse the deci-
sion later, but make the ini-
tial call quickly.
After reviewing the play, -
apparently Webb was
secure in his first decision
and let the ruling stand.
But now the Brewers are
trying to get the call over-
turned so Sabathia can get
credit for the no-no.
Which to me, is itself a
no-no.
* In baseball, as in so
many other sports, you
can't say that because of
this, that would have hap-
pened later.
Because it was on the
board as a hit, from that
point on, Sabathia's
approach would have been
different than if he still had
the no-hit bid going.
With the comfortable
lead, and the no-hitter

A new beginning at Heartland


Past connection

brings about

new start
By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING It's funny how
life works sometimes.
How connections with the
past can be revisited and be
the start of a whole new
beginning.
Such is the case for the
Heartland Christian. volley-
ball team, as a former coach
has tabbed the new one.
"I was at Hill-Gustat and "
they asked me to coach the
eighth grade volleyball team,"
Heartland Athletic Director
Hal Graves said. "Now I did-
n't know much about volley-
ball, but I know talent when I
see it.
"There was a girl that stood
out from the moment she
came onto the floor," he con-
tinued. "She just took control,
knew what she was doing. I
learned more from her than
she ever learned from me."
That standout student was
Shannon Fassler, who would
go on to play four years at
Sebring before moving on to
college.
"Then one day a'few years
later, I'm announcing a game
for (SFCC volleyball coach)
Kim (Crawford)," said
Graves, who also lends his
dolcid tones to announcing
Panther athletics. "And who
do I see playing for Polk
(Community College), but
Shannon, and I thought 'wow,
she's really gone far with
this.'"
Flash forward a few more
years, and Graves was at his"
post at Heartland, looking for
a new volleyball coach for the
Chargers.

Shannon Fassler, Caitlin Cwalinski, Lydia Ford, Katie Vickers, Kayla Kaszubowski, Rebekah
Watts and Ellie Arnold. Front row, from left: Kayla Selander, Ester Arnold, Carolyn
Cwalinksi, Christie Davis and Sara Bohan.


"I'd see her brother most
days, and it dawned on me, so
I asked him if she'd be inter-
ested," he said.
"I thought it would be a
good place for me to start,
with me making the transition
from playing to coaching,"
Fassler said. "And I thought
this would be good for them,
with the tools I can bring.
Heartland is a great school
and they do the best with what
they have, and I thought I
could really help them by giv-
ing them the best of what I
have."
Still, it's a long way from
playing for the Blue Streaks
and at the junior college level.
"The timing was really
good," Fassler said. "A couple
years ago, I don't know that I
would have been available, or


ready to go from player to
coach. And I'm encouraged
now with what I see."
"There are some really
good athletes here, but they
really didn't, have a lot of the
fundamentals down," she con-
tinued. "At first I was like,
augh, but I could see that I
had athletes to work with, and
they've made so much
progress."
And in a school the size of
Heartland, the pickings can be
slim, even if in Class 17 stu-
dent -athletes down to 6th
grade are eligible.
"We aren't Sebring with
thousands of students to
choose from," Fassler said.
"We have a little more than
100 students from kinder-
garten through twelfth grade."
"But these girls have a lot


of heart. They haven't had a
lot of winning in the past, but
they want to learn, the work
really hard and it's a nice,
close-knit group."
The hopes are growing, as
the team watched the Sebring
Preseason Classic, to get a
taste of a higher level of vol-
leyball and they left with a
good impression.
"They were seeing things
that we've been doing and
said, 'hey, we can do that,'"
Fassler said. "So that was a
bit of a confidence boost."
And the team won't be shy-
ing away from the bigger
schools, as Fassler seeks to
put their feet to the fire early
,on, with games set up against
both Sebring's---and Lake
Placid's junior varsity teams

Lady Panthers looking

for improvement

SFCC head coach Kim Crawford, far right, discusses game strategy with her players during a
timeout from Tuesday's match against the Webber International University's junior varsity
team.

daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
AVON PARK The Lady
Warriors of Webber
International came for a visit
Tuesday night, sending their
junior varsity in for an early
season match against the
South Florida Ledy Panthers.
The match marked a home-
coming for Avon Park grad
Kelly Bass, who earned a
scholarship to play at the
Babson Park school.
It also was another step in
the progression of the Lady
Panther program in what has
been a tough season thus far.
But as the collection of new
faces has gone through the


schedule looking for its first
match win, progress has been
seen.
"They know what it takes,"
head coach Kim Crawford said
prior to game time. "They're
getting better and working real-
ly hard. But I'm seeing a lot of
the same mistakes.
"We're hitting the same
way, no matter where the ball
is," she continued. "Some
balls that are just at net level,
we're still trying to hit as hard
as we can."
The result of Tuesday
nights match was not avail-
able at press time, but check
www.newssun.com for results
Wednesday afternoon.

borne to send the ball back

LOOKING BACK

10 YEARS AGO
September 4, 1998: The Green Dragons of the gridiron got their season off on the right track by
trouncing Moore Haven, 34-0. Avenging a 43-18 loss from the year before, Lake Placid took care of the
7th ranked Class 2A team with a mantra of Payback is Sweet. It was the ground attack that rolled over
theTerriers, as junior Sedrick Clark led the way with 132 yards on 12 carries for two touchdowns. Senior
Derek Irvin rushed 12 times for 83 yards, scoring one touchdown on the ground and catching another.

marIde touring the race. The Pepsi
51'" ai Auro Club Speedway in
Fornara. Calif., was an example
of oune ar.er, one car, dominat-
inrg froin beginning to end. John-
ion rurrnig up the heat on his


bid for a third consecutive Sprint
Cup championship, led 227 out
of 250 laps. The 23 laps he did-
n't lead had almost nothing to
do with even competition. John-
son started on the pole, though,
in an interesting footnote, A.J.
Allmendinger actually led the
first lap. No matter. Johnson,
who started on the pole, ab-
solutely dominated the race.
What could Johnson say after-
wards? Being humble would've
sounded insincere. He tried,
though. "More than anything,
I'm happy to close the deal," he
said. "It's very, very rare to have
a car that dominant. In most
cases, you end up doing some-
thing stupid, and I'm guilty of
that in the past. It was nice to
close the deal and lead all
those laps and win the race."

Devils play is
a 'huge
improvement'
Continued from 1D
out for us at the net," said
Devlin. "Our play was a
huge improvement over last
week. Sebring is tough. With
most other opponents that
level of play would have
been a win, but they are
ahead of us a bit. They seem
like they are playing in mid-
season form already."
"Our intensity dropped off
after the first game, but
Brearnna (Tate) showed a lot
of hustle all night," Devlin
continued. "We had a lot of
hits tonight, and we came
out strong, we were a little
disappointed with the last
match-up, but we have noth-
ing to be upset about. We did
change our defense some,
sending (Melissa) Tullo to a
hitter position and using one
setter with a 5-1 defense."
Stats wise, Sebring's
Molly Blackman led both
teams in kills with 10, and
snagged four blocks.
Brittanie Augustine led
the Lady Streaks in assists
with 24, but also picked up
three blocks and one ace.
"Brit had the best night as
a setter so far," said Sinness.
"But with the passing we
have, it makes it easy to
have amazing sets. Our pass-
ing was amazing."
Avon Park goes on the
road to play Clewiston at
7:30 p.m. on Thursday night

Soaring like an eagle, or flying like a Blue Streak, Molly
Blackman goes up, way up, for this kill attempt in
Sebring's match win over Avon Park.


while Sebring faces
Palmetto at home at 7:30
p.m.
Additionally, Sebring's


junior varsity team plays
Heartland Christian
Academy at home at 5:30
p.m. Thursday night.

- they will meet the junior
varsity Blue Streaks Thursday
at 5:30 p.m., prior to the
Sebring varsity facing
Palmetto.
"They may beat us, but it
won't be a slaughter like
some would think," she said.
"I don't expect us to win
every game, but I want to see
them work hard and be a com-
petitive team, and we're very
capable of that. It's not just
about- winning either. I'd
rather see them play their
hearts out, play good volley-
ball and lose, than to win a


game where they didn't really
play well."
And, perhaps, the best news
for Fassler is that it is a young
team, with Caitlin Cwalinski
and Christie Davis being the
only seniors on the squad.
There aren't even any jun-
iors on the roster, with sopho-
mores Carolyn Cwalinski,
Lydia Ford, Kayla
Kaszubowski and Rebekah
Watts, freshman Ellen Arnold,
eighth graders Esther Arnold,
Kayla Selander and Katie
Vickers and seventh grader
Sara Bohan.


The good news for
Heartland?
Fassler isn't in this for the
quick fix.
"I really like it here. That
it's small and very close-
knit," she said. "And I've got
so many younger girls that I
want to work with and see
them all the way through."
A brighter future for
Heartland Christian volley-
ball and their new coach,
Shannon Fassler.
And to think, it all started
with an eighth grader and her
coach.


Maybe CC gets the no-no and Biff

becomes the evil Mayor of Hill Valley


Continued from 1D
gone, he could just relax, go
after hitters and just make
sure he got the win.
If the ruling had been an
error, and the no-hitter still
intact, you can't tell me that
the pressure wouldn't have
been amped up in the later
innings.
Because he threw a partic-
ular pitch to a certain batter
with a one-hitter going, does-
n't mean he'd have thrown
the same pitch to that same
batter late in the game with a
no-hitter going.
The decisions become
more strained, the nerves get
a little more jumpy as he
closes in on this impressive


feat.
Forget the fact that it
would be quite anti-climactic
to find he had 'earned' the
accomplishment after the fact
- because there is no way to
know that he would have got-
ten it at the time.
The call can be looked
back at and debated I per-
sonally believe it should have
been an error.
But you can't look back
and say that if it had been
ruled an error at the time,
that he would have gotten the
no hitter.
Just think of the skewed
time line from 'Back to the
Future,' as Doc Brown
explained it to Marty McFly.


Once the ruling was made,
everything that followed was
the future as it would have
played out.
If a different ruling was
made, we move on a whole
other path, with everything
that follows being a little bit
different.
Maybe Biff becomes the
evil Mayor of Hill Valley,
maybe George becomes a
best selling author.
And maybe CC pitches a
no hitter, but maybe he does-
n't.

Kim Crawford (second from right), head volleyball coach at South Florida Community
College, and several of her players deliver shoes to a collection drive for needy children in
Guatemala. JOY-FM is coordinating the drive on behalf of Buckner International. South
Florida Community College's Lady Panthers Volleyball Team recently delivered six pairs of
new shoes to Buckner International's "Shoes for Souls" campaign, through the Tampa-based
radio station, JOY-FM. Kim Crawford, SFCC head volleyball coach, said she and several of
her players listen to JOY-FM and heard about the campaign. "We were discussing it and
decided we wanted to do something to help," Crawford said. "Shoes for Souls" is Buckner
International's largest humanitarian aid project. To date, it has provided more than 1.6 mil-
lion pairs of shoes to orphans and needy children worldwide. In late September, JOY-FM
deejay Carmen Brown and ForeFront Records recording artist Geoff Moore will deliver the
shoes to children in Guatemala.
