Jan. 1 to keep up with the coun-

' Entering their third year in

They allow Highlands

NATIONAL RECOVERY MONTH


STORY OF AN ADDICT


By ROMONA WASHINGTON
editor@ newssun.com
SEBRING

description of his life.
Timothy Ruff was just 7
when his father died. He
was 19 and incarcerated, unable to
attend the funeral, when his mother
died. Though she had died of can-
cer, she had remarried after her
first husband died. Her second hus-
band was abusive, Ruff said,
adding that she would never call
police after being left black and
blue because she was afraid of los-
ing her eight children to the state
foster care system.
He was serving a third time in
prison when his oldest daughter
was born. By the time he got out of
prison, the baby's mother had a
home, a car and a good-paying job.
She gave Ruff an ultimatum: Either
get straight or leave. He chose the
drugs and left.
"To an addict, nothing is as
important as the drugs," he said.
Ruff was just 19 when he was
sent to prison the first time. The
crime was burglary.
"In prison was the first place I
ever put a needle in my arm or sold
drugs. Drugs were around me every
day, all day," he said.
He returned to prison another
three times. Today, he is just 52
and he's a recovering addict.
September is Recovery Month, a
time when Ruff wanted to tell his
story in hopes of being able to help
even one addict turn their life
around.
In addition to the other tragedies
he suffered, Ruff's sister was just
41 years old when she was shot
twice in the head just because she
wanted to leave an abusive rela-
tionship. Any one of these things,
he said, would work as an excuse
to use drugs, but that would be a
lie.
"I have no one to blame but
myself," he said.

As a recovering addict, Timothy Ruff understands the effects of drugs on
a person's state of mind. He has been in recovery for 17 months now.

then I've done what the Lord has set

me out to do.'

In light of the sharp decrease
in new construction permits,
the board elected to not
increase the rates.
Commissioner C. Guy
Maxcy voted against Tuesday's

"Anything we do to put a
burden on the folks to build a

county," Maxcy said. "I just
hate to put any more on the

Three teens


arrested for


crime spree
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING In a cooperative investi-
gation, the Sebring Police Department,
Avon Park Police Department, Orange
County Sheriff's Office and the
Highlands County Sheriff's Office have
brought charges against members of a
robbery and burglary ring responsible
for crimes in multiple
jurisdictions.
The three Sebring 1
teen suspects in these
cases are: Deol
Narayan, 18, of 3525
Dauphine St.; Luis
Reyes,18, of 2011 Narayan
Rainbow Ave., and
Nicholas Ramos, 19, of
1879 Jones Drive.
According to a press
release from the
Highlands County
Sheriff's Office, the
multi-agency investiga-

Aug. 7 by the Sebring
Police Department.
'Reyes was arrested and
charged with a burglary

Grove Drive in Sebring.
As subsequent inves- Reyes
tigation and interviews
revealed the scope of the groups crimi-
nal activity, detectives from Sebring

the Highlands and Orange County
Sheriff's Offices worked together to
link the various suspects with crimes

AP city council holds firm on

not providing in-kind services

Chamber will have to raise fees for Christmas parade


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK David
Greenslade, president and
chief executive officer of the
chamber of commerce, has
announced the chamber will
have to raise the participation
fee for businesses and organi-
zations taking part in the
annual Christmas parade.
The rise was necessary, he


said, to make up for the loss
of in-kind city services, such
as police officers to close
streets and direct traffic and
public works staff to help
with the clean-up.
The city council had
recently made that decision as
a way of helping balance the
city budget.
Monday night Sarah Adelt,
city manager, recommended


that the city council adjust
that decision and split the
cost with' the chamber
instead. The cost would be
$1,500.
Adelt said that the
Christmas parade and the July
4 fireworks display are two
events that are enjoyed by the
entire city and it was appro-

'Habitat

Village'

changes

plans, will

now offer

100 homes

By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING Earlier in the
year, Highlands County
Habitat for Humanity was
approached by the county
commission to take over a
housing development project
after another non-profit com-
pany opted out of the pro-
gram.
Originally the develop-
ment, located on 20 acres off
of Martin Luther King Jr.
Blvd., was slated to hold 68
single family homes.
"Eventually we came up
with an agreement in princi-
ple," said Highlands County
Habit for Humanity
Executive Director Michael
Jacobson. "One hundred fam-
ilies served is better than 50
served; commercial space is
better than no commercial
space; greenspace is better
than no greenspace."
The new plan presented at
Tuesday's county commis-
sion meeting drastically
changed the original plans,
including raising the number
of homes available to 100.
"I think we need to try to
capitalize on Habitat's good
thoughts and ideas here," said
Commissioner C. Guy Maxcy
about the proposed changes.
Jacobson explained the
reason behind the population
shift in an interview after
Tuesday's meeting.
"Look at the burgeoning
number of working families
looking for affordable, safe
places to live," he said. "It
made sense to get some more
density and take the bite out
of dur family inventory."
The plan features town-
houses with four homes to a
structure, saving space while
utilizing the extra room for
commercial usage and green-
space, including a large com-
munity park.
"In addition to building
these homes we are request-
ing we be able to build
10,000 square feet of com-
mercial space to attract a con-
venience store, maybe a day-
care center or a small bank,"
he said. "If we can bring
those to the community it
makes for a much more sus-
tainable village-type con-
cept."
In a letter to the board
dated Aug. 19, Jacobson men-
tioned similar large-scale
subdivisions built by Habitat
affiliates in Collier, Lee,
Sarasota and Pinellas coun-
ties.
Sarasota County, where
Jacobson worked with
Habitat earlier in the year
before taking over the local
affiliate, has completed plans
to build a 230-unit mixed
income, multi-family com-
munity with childcare facili-
ty, community center and
pool, he said.
"It is important to maxi-
mize intelligently the oppor-
tunity this 20 acres allows
and serve as many families as
reasonably possible," he
wrote in the letter.
The fastest growing seg-
ment of the local workforce
will likely be in those posi-
tions that pay the least,
Jacobson wrote in the letter.
"(They) will have decent ...
safe places to live, be able to
own the land, property, the


house, which gets them more
invested in the community
and all that comes with it," he
said. "It's the American
Dream."

NEWS-SUN WATCH


What's Broken
When the News-Sun called Eddie
Cardona of Highlands County Traffic
Operations on Tuesday to ask about
the left-turn light at U.S. 27 and
Hammock Road in Sebring, which
sometimes turns green on just every
other cycle, he was already on the
case. Cardona said a crew worked
on the light Monday, which he hopes
will fix the problem. "It's a ghost we're
chasing," he said, referring to the fact
that at times (like when a crew goes
out to fix it), the light works just fine.
Cardona said his department wel-
comes information about problems
that motorists 'come across in their
travels in the county. His number is

Argument leads to

drive-by shooting in

Highway Park


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID -
Officials from the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office continue to investi-
gate a drive-by shooting in
Highway Park Sunday
night.
"It is probable the sher-
iff's office will have a suc-
cessful conclusion to this
case in the near future," said
HCSO Sgt. Darin Hood on
Tuesday.
Approximately eight
shots were fired from a lime
green Ford Crown Victoria
along the 100 block of
Anderson Street.
"The shots were fired in
the direction of where a few
people were congregated,"
Hood said.


None of the eight shots,
fired from a rifle, hit any-
one.
When asked if any of the
bullets or other evidence
was recovered, Hood would
not be specific.
"We have recovered some
evidence but are not disclos-
ing the details of the evi-
dence at this time," he said.
At least one other person
was in the car with the
shooter but Hood would not
discuss whether or not they
would be facing charges.
"The sheriff's office has
active leads that are being
investigated," he said.
The shooting was alleged-
ly in response to an argu-
ment that took place earlier
in the day.

AVON PARK What
started out as a routine
prowling investigation
turned into a violent, and
potentially deadly, struggle
for an Avon Park police offi-
cer Saturday night.
According to his report,
APPD patrol officer Adam
Willis was wrapping up a
traffic stop in front of
the Avon Park
Chiropractic Center
at 1590 U.S. 27
North just before 10
p.m. when he saw
Ray Francisco
Quinones, 44, of
Avon Park, park his Quir
car in the APCC
parking lot and walk behind
the business.
Willis pulled his patrol
car into the parking lot,
which prompted Quinones
to immediately turn and
walk the other way, Willis
reported. After being
ordered to stop, Quinones
told Willis he was looking
for a kid that was running
through the area.
When Willis, who had
been in the area and seen no
child, asked Quinones to
come to his patrol car,
Quinones reportedly became
agitated and aggressive.
Things got worse from
there. Willis wrote that he
pulled out his electronic
control device, more com-
monly known as a Taser, out

He said the autopsy and

death.
"She'll be greatly missed,"
Gene Brenner, Brenner Potter

Tuesday.
He learned of her death
about 8 a.m. Monday, about

her.

Quinones complied, but
then refused to let Willis
search him, repeatedly turn-

reported, then pushed Willis
and began to walk away.
After his ECD failed to
fire, Willis grabbed
Quinones, who began to
fight back. During the,,strug-
gle, Quinonesreport-
edly grabbed Willis'

and threw it into the
woods 30 feet away,

Willis and hit him

ones Quinones then
tried to grab Willis'
firearm, which prompted
Willis to begin punching
Quinones in the stomach, all
the while telling him to stop
resisting arrest.
Backup arrived and
Quinones was handcuffed
and secured in a patrol car.
Willis, who was cleared
by EMS at the scene, later
learned that Quinones had
been drinking prior to the
incident, the report said. The
incident was recorded on
Willis' in-car camera.
Quinones was charged
with battery on a law
enforcement officer, depriv-
ing an officer of a means of
protection, resisting arrest
with violence and loitering
or prowling of a closed busi-
ness.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


Kudos to law enforcement on a job well done


Tuesday, police actions at the South Carolina
vs. West Virginia football game led to
charges of excessive force.


The former Broward County Sheriff
Ken Jenne is currently serving time in
federal prison on public corruption
charges.
The police departments of New
York City, Chicago and Los Angeles
have, off and on, long made headlines
regarding similar accusations.
Alleged hostility between federal
law enforcement officers and local
police departments has become the
subject of books, movies and television
drama.
What a refreshing breath of reality


then to find out that here in Central
Florida law enforcement agencies are
not just professional and successful,
they work well together.
Take the cooperative investigation
conducted in August by the Sebring
and Avon Park police departments, the
Highlands County Sheriff's Office
and the Orange County Sheriff's
Office for example.
Combining their resources and
information, detectives of these agen-
cies have broken up a three-man rob-
bery and burglary ring thought to be


v


S


I a


responsible for at least nine crimes
committed this summer.
All three suspects two of whom
are 18 years old, the third is 19 years
old are accused of armed robberies
of a Subway restaurant and a 7-Eleven
store in Orange County.
Two of the three also have been
charged with burglary and grand theft
at a private home in Sebring.
One suspect has been charged in
two other Sebring home burglaries;
another is charged in three robberies
of gas stations, one in Avon Park, two
in Sebring, and the robbery of an indi-
vidual walking near Grand Prix Drive
and U.S. 27.
According to a joint agency press
release, the investigation was


launched when one of the three young
men was arrested for one of the rob-
beries. As the scope of the crimes was
revealed, detectives from all four law
enforcement agencies coordinated
their efforts, allegedly linking the
three suspects. The two teens who
were still at large were located and
brought into custody. Searches of the
three different residences resulted in
the recovery of evidence, firearms and
stolen property.
As we said at the outset, law
enforcement officers take their share
of criticism and blame.
We think it is important to point out
when they do a difficult and danger-
ous job well congratulations, and
thank you.

I,


Helped needed to do job
left undone by builder
Editor:
When we began to look for our
first home we couldn't be more
excited. It was a couple of months
after I found out I was pregnant. We
were so excited that we found a
home in our price range and a seller
willing to cooperate with FHA
mortgage. So excited that we want-
ed to rush and have everything
ready for the new baby. We couldn't
be happier with our new purchase
or feel more accomplished in life.
That is until we noticed some small
damages to our new home.
We noticed that every time it
rained, water would gather in the
walk way by the front door. The
bottom of the frame had been
soaked too many times with water
and began to give in. The grout
between the tile started to disappear
and the water temperatures were
switched in the guest bathroom. The
garage door got stuck on the frame
and would not move. If that wasn't
bad enough, the garage door doesn't
close all the way and it also leaks
letting water in the garage. There is
a lot of other things that need to be
fixed so I got a list together.
I first contacted (the builder) in
the middle of February. We never
heard back from him after about
five messages that my husband I
left him. I then contacted his real
estate advisor in April to see if I
could get some help from her. She
contacted him and asked him to
please call us about the damages to
the house. He actually did. He set
up a time to come and view the
damages that following week. When
he arrived he seemed as if he was in
a big rush but agreed that the dam-
ages needed to be fixed. He let us
know that he would bring a crew
over to begin the repairs. He didn't
call or say anything about the
repairs. In June he sent a repair man
to fix the garage door. At the end of
July he sent a tile repair man to fix
the grout and a plumber to fix the
temperatures in the guest bathroom.
My husband contacted (the
builder),once more to see if he'd
forgotten about the front door and
the other little problems we were
having. He stated that he was on
vacation and couldn't do anything
then; he would call us back the fol-

lowing week. My husband had to
contact him again because he never
returned his call. (The builder) then
stated that he had done too much
for us already, paying the closing
costs and down payment, that we
should just give him a break. ...
My husband I have decided that
we are tired of arguing with (the
builder) about the repairs. The main
thing that I'm afraid of is that there
has been too much water that leaked
in and I fear that we have black
mold in our walls by that door ...
We need help and it is (the
builder's responsibility to honor
the one year warranty and fix these
damages to the house. This all
could have been avoided if he took
a little more consideration in the
homes he built....

What are 'conditions
on the ground?'
Editor:
After listening to the latest debate
on when we might withdraw forces
from Iraq it is clear that the latest
operative euphemism for determin-
ing when to leave is the "conditions
on the ground" as viewed by the
commanders on the ground. General
Petreaus, after crowing on all of the
successes resulting from the surge,
cautioned that all of these results
are "fragile" and could be reversed
quickly. So much for finality and
victory.
The political side of the problem,
the one the Iraqis themselves were
going to solve with the benefit of
the additional time provided by the
surge, seems equally elusive and
beyond reach.


Suspecting a red herring, or
school of them, I looked elsewhere,
eager to determine what issues con-
cerned the Iraqis and what progress-
toward resolution had been made.
Iraqi's former Prime Minister
Allawi was appearing at a session
of the Carnegie Endowment to
speak on the surge, a golden oppor-
tunity. After listening to his ram-
bling circumlocutionary diatribe,
during which he tipped his hat to all
the issues but suggested nothing
concerning their resolution, I decid-
ed never to play poker with these
guys, they don't have any "tells."
This is somewhat understandable,
since if you never take any position,
you can never be accused of making
a mistake and consequently cannot
be held accountable if anything
goes wrong.
I tried to narrow my concerns to
what in the Iraqi mind would con-
stitute political success to the point
where the standing by of the United
States Army was no longer
required. Stability appears to be the
next buzz word. Did that mean the
complete settling of old scores and
the guarantee that those presently in
control of the government, would
continue as the control group?
Given the volatile nature of politics
in general, of Arabian politics in
particular and the fact that some
major fractional differences still
exist and will continue to exist in
Iraq's body politics, the prospect for
continued disagreement seems all
but assured. Are we looking for an
end to a chicken and egg argument
when all disagreement is resolved
and all dissent quashed? Does "con-
ditions on the ground" mean we
stay at the ready until Iraq is as qui-
escent as Switzerland?
Nothing happens in that part of
the world without deadlines, and
since all parties are in general


agreement that 16 months seems
reasonable; let's end the debate.

National POW/MIA
Recognition Day Sept. 20
Editor:
Thank you for joining me and
taking your time to read this letter
regarding POW/MIA day. We
should honor the men and women
who served and sacrificed to keep
our America free ... and to salute
the families of the missing who
continue to keep the candle of hope
alive today.
There are too many of our people
who are missing and unaccounted
for from the wars that our nation
has been involved in going back as
far as World War II These are our
military and civilians who are our
mothers, fathers, sons and daugh-
ters. How sad.
A lot of these wars ended a long
time ago but we still should pause
and remember their sacrifices. I
cannot imagine how I would feel if
I lost my husband or family mem-
ber for this length of time, days,
months and, yes, even decades.
They deserve an answer.
I would be remiss if I did not
remind everyone to thank every vet-
eran and give them your apprecia-
tion and gratitude for their sacri-
fices for our freedom.
Let us, today and every day, try
and remain strong in our love for
our Great America that so many
fought and are still fighting and
sacrificing their lives for. Without
that there would not have been or
will there be a United States of
America.
May God bless our former
POW/MIA's and keep our military,
wherever they may be, safe and


God may you always continue to
bless the United States of America
and keep her free. Just pause and
remember the many blessings that
are bestowed upon us daily.
Remember freedom is not free, it is
a gift. Cherish it while you can.
Let us remember those who put
country before self and did not
return home to their families. May
God bless our former prisoners of
war and the memory of the missing
and their families who continue to
wait.
Let us give daily thanks for our
men and women in uniform in this
time of trouble and pray that they
all may come home safely soon.
In closing I wish to invite every-
one to the POW/MIA remembrance
on Saturday, Sept. 20, at 7 p.m. on
the Circle in Sebring. Come out and
join us and let us recommit our-
selves to remaining strong in our
devotion to the principles for which
so many courageously fought and
sacrificed and are still doing today.
Thank you for your attention.

LPMS would like
to say thanks
Editor:
The teachers and staff at Lake
Placid Middle School would like to
extend a great big "Thank you" to
those that contributed to the "Back
to School Luncheon" held at the
First Baptist Church in Lake Placid
during our pre-school week. In
addition to the luncheon, teachers
were provided a pen and note pad
with the inscription "Teachers are
the Heart of Learning."
And to Riverside National Bank,
the breakfast you provided our first
day back was "sweet." The abun-
dance of donuts, fruits and bagels
certainly got our school off to a
great start.
The First Baptist Church and
Riverside National Bank created an
awesome opportunity for teachers to
gather in fellowship and know the
community appreciates what we do
on a daily basis as educators.

Thursday night at the cham-
ber's next meeting.
Council members
expressed reservations.
Brenda Gray, for example,
was concerned because the
council had just voted one
way and now would be seen
as flip-flopping.
Mayor Sharon Schuler was
concerned that sponsors of
other events would cite the
Christmas parade exception
and demand the same kind of
support from the city. She
suggested the chamber seek
out sponsors to offset the
costs.
Joe Wright agreed that


drawing the line could be dif-
ficult. He cited as examples
the homecoming parade and
the Martin Luther King Jr.
parade.
When council member
Aljoe Hinson suggested
bringing in commercial ven-
dors to raise money,
Greenslade replied that the
Christmas parade was held in
the spirit of the season, mean-
ing it was not meant to be for-
profit.
What vendors did set up, he
said, were all educational
organizations like supporters
of the school band, the Key
Club and Project Graduation.
The parade is a major
fundraiser for them.
"We do not want to go
commercial (for this event),"
he said.
The council members, who
also act as the Community
Redevelopment Agency, sug-
gested the CRA advisory
boards allocate funding to
help offset the costs, rather
than the council backing
down on its new policy. They
then voted unanimously to
not change it.
Greenslade reassured all
present that the parade would
take place one way or another.

Recovering addict shares his story to help others


Continued from page 1A
Ruff was a kid growing up in the
Tampa area in the 1970s. He drank
wine, smoked some marijuana and
even took a Quaalude and tried LSD.
Nothing. he said, that he became
addicted to.
About 22 years separated his third
incarceration and this final run in jail.
He and a female friend were looking
for some crack cocaine around the
Beachfront area in Avon Park. When
they were stopped. Ruff said he swal-
lowed his drugs. Police found residue
on his teeth and charged him with pos-
session.
"I'm tired of running. When they
brought me to jail I got down on my
knees and told the good Lord that I
was done. He threw me a lifeline by
sending IASA (Jail I-\li. iut! e i',
Suibt:.nce Abuse) to nc I .s thec
Icl't il ,: '; to get-in the program and
the least likely to complete it because


7 have no one to blame
but myself"'

TIMOTHY RUFF
Recovering addict
of my background and my attitude, but
I knew I had to straighten up," he said.
While in jail this last time, Ruff said
he had a brief moment to yell through
the cells to the woman he was with
when they were arrested. She told him
that her 26-year-old son had died.
Emotions still running deep. Ruff said
all he could think about was how her
son had reached out to his mother for
help. but she appeared more interested
in her drugs than in helping him.
"He reached out and asked for help.
,hi i ..... 1. h d i hiFc or him. No one
kl1nC.. he .lc. e c- Itects of .o-(r diffr-
the si.iii I' mind. I was fortunate. I
had a legion of angles helping guard


my life," he said.
Ruff was one of 12 to complete the
second JASA class. He has been in
recovery for 17 months.
"The toughest part has been not hav-
ing a job, but the Lord has blessed me
so I stay focused. An idle mind is the
devil's workshop a it's when we're
the most vulnerable," Ruff said, adding
he would like to see JASA add a job
network to help recovering addicts find
jobs.
"It's a commitment I must make to
myself and to society. I am committed
to recovery," Ruff said. "If I can help
save one more addict, then I've done
what the Lord set me out to do. It's
been a rough road, but it's something
that was meant to be in my life. It's
i .i( .b1.nit me. hut it's about bein- an
c..'1impl~e ,'i F1ie':C pile who are .mningr -

would expect me to do."

sion.
"I think we've said all we
can say," Richie said from his
seat in the audience.
The fees increased at the
greatest rate 15.9 percent
-- for Parks and Recreation, a
reflection of land values, the
decrease of which won't be
reflected until next year.
The library impact fee
increased the least at 3.4 per-
aent.
Ironically, impact fees for


single-family homes are more
than multi-family dwellings
because, explained County
Engineer Ramon Gavarrete,
the former generate more
road trips than the latter.
Commissioner Andrew
Jackson said that that seemed
to defy common sense, but he
accepted Gavarrete's and
County Administrator
Michael Wright's assertions
that study upon study have
proven so.

Legion Unit 69 has back-to-school

party for girls at Hansen House


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Darlene Watkin,children and
youth chairman for the Avon Park American
Legion Auxiliary, and her Auxiliary friends
wanted to give the girls at Hansen House a
great send-off to begin the new school year.
Watkin brought in two huge adult water
slides for three days of just great fun and
exercise. The girls loved it as did the volun-
teers and supervisors from the home. Taylor
Rental provided the fun-filled jumpers and
the Ladies Auxiliary provided large hot
dogs, chips, pop, Doritos, and many baked
items, thanks once more to "the caring
grannies of Unit 69."
Several members provided school supplies
for each girl and Watkin provided prizes of
calculators, gift cards to Wal-Mart, book
bags, personal need items, etc. Mert and
Carol Daniels from Crystal Lake donated a
$20 gift card, and Harold Oliver surprised
Watkin with a donation of $200 worth of gift
cards.
After a day that would wear out the best-
in-shape people, the girls curled up with
treats and five movies to while their night
away.
There are so many things that can be done
to let the girls, who are at Hansen House for
their personal safety, know they are cared
about. Sewing classes, art classes, dressing
for success, proper make up or hair for job

Sebring
Recreation Club
By Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING It is written
"Let no man seek his own, but
each his neighbor's good."
Well at the club, we are one
big happy family unless we
are having a bad hair day.
People like Tom Bruha, who
makes the club as happy as it
is, will be found playing ping-
pong or on the shuffleboard
courts. Winnie Wells shares
words of encouragement on
the shuffleboard courts and at
the card tables. Betty Rizor
brings people to shuffleboard
with us. She even gives some
rides so that they will be able
to make it. Bill Hann always
has a big smile and helping
hand.
Line dancing is being
turned up a notch with new
dances. Maria Sheehan
comes from Lake Placid and
arrives early just to get set up
for your dancing. Beat the
rush and try dancing with
them this Wednesday evening.
You may even find a little
party during the dancing. You
will only be a stranger to them
once on your first visit. On
your second visit you will
have made at least one friend
in this group.
Table tennis is still a little
slow this summer.
In shuffleboard, keep away
from suicide alley. This
tempting forbidden strip is
always on your side of the
board. It is that outside part of
the court from your oppo-
nent's St. Pete. A smart play-
er, knowing the weakness of
his opponent, will set up
unusually wide St. Pete. This
will not only make suicide
alley narrower but will make
it almost impossible for a
counter block on the inside to
be effective. Actually, the
only defense against a wide
St. Pete is to blast it out of
there. The sides of most
courts are generally spotty
and therefore a different


speed is needed to shoot down
the alley. A shot down suicide
alley will very often go in the
kitchen.
Winnie Wells sent me a
note saying she was not in any
pain but she had to wait for
the doctor before she could
put any weight on her leg. She
may be back in action before
you see this, I hope.
With our summer coming to
an end we will be seeing love
bugs before long. Our north-
ern friends will be waking to
white grass in the mornings
with a chill in the air. When
this time comes we shall
begin seeing some of our
smarter friends, They love our
winters and our temperatures.
Help John Bushee in all
that he does alone with shuf-
fling. The courts are swept
before they are used each
time, with trash that has
blown in picked up. Blocks or
discs are gotten out and set in
place. Mats for us to sit on are
at all seats to be used. Chalk
with eraser at every score-
board. Scoreboards are
cleaned, ready for use. John
should not do this alone and
he should not have to ask you
for help. Many hands make
the work easy and also fun.
Some have been helping with
the waxing of the disc after
their use, so keep up the good
work.
Shuffleboard tournaments
in Sebring: John Bushee has
lined up for Nov. 6-7 Central
District with lunch available.
Nov. 11 finds a Highlands
County tournament with no
lunch served. Nov. 17-19,
Florida State Tournament
with lunch available. If you
do not compete, you should
stop in for lunch. If you have
not yet tried a tournament,
stop in and talk to John
Bushee or enter one of these.
The public is welcome to
watch any tournament.
Call Ed Straub with ques-
tions on ways to help the club.
We're at 333 Pomegranate
Ave., in back of the Sebring
Police Station.

Lady Streaks get a look at what it takes


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING This was the
measuring stick, the game
Lady Blue Streak head coach
Venessa Sinness had circled
on the schedule from the start
of the season.
"It's nerve-wracking," she
said before the game.
Those feelings were not
without foundation, as
Sebring battled district power
DeSoto, gaining confidence
and momentum as the match
went on, only to fall in three
straight to the Lady Bulldogs.
"Our serve receive really
struggled early on," Sinness
said. "They serve very
aggressively and we didn't
adjust to it real well."
Behind 6-foot-2, Division I
recruit, Brittany Muse,
DeSoto got rolling early and


often, as with fellow middle
Shelby Flint (6-foot), it was
one of the few times all year
the Sebring 'Twin Towers' of
Molly Blackman and Hannah
Shoop were 'out-towered.'
Muse got it all started with
a kill for the first point, but
the Streaks battled back.
Blackman scored on a
block and Megan Darr got a
Sebring point on a service ace
to get them a 3-2 lead.
But Muse was soon all over
the place, recording kills,
blocks and converting on mis-
direction tips as part of a run
that suddenly showed the
Bulldogs up 15-3.
The Streaks fought back,
with another Blackman block
and an Anna West service ace,
but then it was Kalee Schlabach
smashing two kills that put a


stamp on the 25-9 win.
The second set began much
the same way, with DeSoto
jumping out early and Sebring
getting back into it.
Consecutive aces by West
evened things up at 8-8 before the
Bulldogs got unleashed again.
From 8-8 it went to 14-8,
then 18-9 and 22-10.
But the confidence began to
turn with Darr making fantas-
tic digs of Muse kill attempts
to keep volley's alive.
It would be enough to get
them back into it, but the 25-
14 loss was at least a step in
the right direction.
.Now with the realization
that this was a team they
could compete with, the Lady
Streaks went toe-to-toe with
DeSoto, not allowing another

The effort was there, as Kaley Freeland's diving dig shows, but the results came up short as
Sebring fell to district power DeSoto Tuesday night.

News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK "Never take anything
for granted. You have to live every
moment and play every down like it is
your last. Everyone is just one injury
away from their career ending."
These wise words are part of the les-
son Willie English took away from his
high school football career.
In 1987, the young running back
from Avon Park broke out 51 yards for
a touchdown, helping his team to 'the
34-0 victory over Bonifay-Holmes
County and the state championship.
Twenty-one years ago, Avon Park
football was on top of the world, and
English played a big part in that suc-
cess.
"Those memories are great to share.
We are still a close knit group, and we
get together sometimes to talk about
that game: We talk, and we remember."
English also played on the state
championship baseball team that year,
but he feels he contributed the most to
the football team.
English played both ways for the Red
Devils that year.
Offensively, his speed and running
abilities put him at running back.
Defensively, English was a threat at
linebacker.
Head coach for the Red Devils in
1987 was recent Florida Hall of Fame
inductee Hoppy Rewis.
"Coach Rewis was a straightforward
coach. I thought he was a good coach
that stressed game fundamentals. He
was a players coach you might say,"
commented English.
What was going through English's
mind during that 51 yard touchdown
run?
"All I could think was don't let 'em
catch me," laughed English.
"I was running for all I had, I could
see the goal line and I just kept think-
ing, 'don't let 'em catch me'."0
After high school, English went on to
letter at the University of Central
Florida.
His speed got him a tailback position
at UCF, where he was the leading rush-
er in his junior year, but an injury
forced him to red shirt at the top of his

career in 1991.
English would come back in 1993 to
letter, but his speed was off a bit.
"I was just one injury away from a
great career," said English. "I learned
not to take anything for granted."
For the last 15 years, 11 of which he
has spent at Sun 'N Lakes, English has
been a physical education teacher and a
coach.
He currently serves as a coach for
Avon Park JV football, assists as a
coach for the Avon Park High girl's
basketball team, and helps out with
boys track.
"We could have matched up man for
man with any team in the state that
year," added English. "It felt good to
win."


Devils go five to


top Lady Wildcats


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK It took five
for the scrappy Lady Red
Devils to skin the Hardee
Lady Wildcats 21-25, 24-26,
25-13, 25-18, 15-10, but they
finally dug out a win in the
District 10-3A girls volleyball
match-up on Tuesday night.
"I hate games like this,"
said Avon Park coach
Stephanie Devlin. "These
girls definitely have heart to
come back from two down to
pull it out, that's for sure."
Hardee seemed to dominate
the first two games, pulling
out front early and not look-
ing back.
The Lady Wildcat's jump
serve gave the Red Devils all
kinds of trouble in the first

two games.
Avon Park seemed to strug-
gle with the serve return in
the first two match-ups, but
each time kept the score
close.
It was the third game with
Avon Park down two, before
Danielle Tomlinson would get
mad and rally the team.
"We call her 'Shotgun' for
a reason," said Devlin. "Her
serves are one of the reasons

Avon Park's comeback win

One game in, 'Fins


QB situation is solid


Who would have thought,
two months ago, that after
the first week of the season,
it would be the Dolphins who
look to have the more secure
quarterback situation?
Maybe not in all of foot-
ball, though a case could be
made that Miami looks better
right now than a lot of teams,
at least in regards to their
field general.
Jay Cutler looked'solid for
Denver, Donovan McNabb
looked great in the Eagle's
win and Matt Flynn and
Aaron Rodgers had debuts
that would seem to ease the
pressure they were under.
But Tom Brady is done for
the year, Jamarcus Russell
didn't look real good
Monday night and who
knows what's going on in
Arizona and San Francisco.
The Bears looked surpris-
ingly good, but their quarter-
back situation isn't the envy
of anyone, unless it's the
Vikings.
I bet Minnesotan's sure
wish the team had actually
done some tampering to get
Brett Favre now.
Which leads us back to the
two nearest Florida teams.
Both were involved in the
whole Favre saga, and I'd
say that the Dolphins got the
better end of the deal all the
way around.
The Bucs didn't get Brett,
risked alienating Jeff Garcia
when they were flirting, and
now Garcia's hurt with what
could be a weekly dilemma.
The Jets got an upgrade,
sure, but it's not like they
replaced Joe Schmo with
Johnny Unitas.
Favre is great, no doubt,
but at this stage of his career,
and his penchant for risky

decisions, the only real step
up he provides over Chad
Pennington is a stronger arm
to allow the New York
offense to become a little
more vertical.
With Pennington then going
to Miami, the Dolphins made
a huge upgrade at A) the most
important position on the field
and B) a position that was
manned by a seeming handful
of Joe Schmo's last year a 1-
1.5 year, mind you.
Pennington is no Hall of
Famer, but he is a more than
capable performer who won't
kill you with bad decisions.
He may not have a rocket -
arm to unleash 70-yard
bombs, but he'll make the
precision throws and keep
the chains moving.
So Brett's Jets topped
Pennington's 'Fins on open-
ing day, but New York is a
more solid all-around team at
this point.
And yet, Miami was this
close to stealing it a far cry
than what would have been
expected from last year's
team.
So, there you have it.
The Bucs not landing Brett
already is causing them prob-
lems, while the Dolphins got
rewarded by Favre not com-
ing to Florida.


Dragons bounce back against


Hardee, Fort Meade

LAKE PLACID The
weekend tournament in
LaBelle didn't end as well as
it had begun for the Lady
Dragons of Lake Placid.
After taking their first
three matches, they fell in
the final two to finish in
fourth place out of ten teams.
Saturday afternoon saw
them push Seacrest in the
first set, but come up short
26-24, before dropping the
second 25-16.
Against Canterbury in the
match for third place, Lake
Placid took the opener 25-17,
but couldn't close out the sec-
ond set, falling 26-24, and
lost the tie-breaker 15-10.

w Since Kasey kahne's bid fell
short. Dodge isn t represented
in the Chase for the Sprint Cup
i In fact, the 12 finalsts are
perfectly matched wirn three
drivers from eacn of four teams:
Kyle Busch. Tony Stewart arin
Denrn Hamlin from Joe Gibbs
Racing: Carl Edwards. Greg Bit.
fie and Man. Kenseth from
Rousn Fernwa Racing: Jimmie
Johnson. Dale Earnhardt Jr. and
Jeff Gordon from Hendrick Mo-
torsporrs, and Jeff Burton. Kevin
Harvick and Clint Bowyer from
Richard Cnildress Racing.
> The Chase is comprised of si
Cneey drivers, three from Toyota
and three from Ford.
I The 2008 regular season end-
ed in the same manner as
2007, with Jimmie Johnson win
ning the final two races.
P Wnat would make the best
story? Jeff Gordon, who twice
would've won championships
nad the old format remained in
place, taking advantage of the
system this year to win a fifth ti-
tle.
> Strain is showing as Tony
Stewart attempts to end his
decade-long relationship with
JGR on a successful note. Stew-
art clashed verbally with crew
chief Greg Zipadelli after finish-
ing second for the third time in
six races.
. The key for Dale Earnhardt Jr.
is getting his No. 88 Chevrolet
running as well at the end of
races as it does in the early and
middle stages.
> Kahne complained that his ef-
forts at Richmond were con-
founded in part by the fact that
two Ford drivers, Jamie McMur-
ray and David Gilliland,,were pit-
ted on either side of him and
made it difficult for him to get
into and out of the pits at Rich-
mond.
> Two drivers in the Chase,
Bowyer and Edwards, have com-
peted in every Nationwide Se-
ries race this year, as well. They
are, in fact, 1-2 in the Nation-
wide points.
. The Chase has five winless
drivers: Stewart, Gordon,
Kenseth, Harvick and Biffle.

monster run.
Twice Shoop blocked tip
attempts by Muse for scores,
Brittanie Augustine convert-
ed a tip and Sebring just
trailed by one at 16-15.
Two small runs pushed it
to 22-17 for DeSoto, before
two Blackman kills got the
Streaks closer.
But another Schlabach
smash put the Lady 'Dogs
to game point before clos-
ing out the 25-20 win.
"It's tough, because the
only time we get to face a
team of this caliber, is when
we play them," Sinness


said. "We don't see teams
like this, so we had to adjust
from what we normally see.
"The girls worked really
hard, and as the match went
on, they adjusted and the
confidence started to
build," she continued. "We
just weren't able to adjust
quickly enough. But it was
a good experience for when
we see them again. Now
they know what they need
to do against them."
And perhaps the lessons
learned can help even soon-
er, as Sebring travels to
Bradenton Thursday to face
another top-level district
rival, Braden River.

their game Tuesday night.
Welcoming Fort Meade to
the Dragon Lair, Lake Placid
was a rude.host, sweeping the
Lady Miners in three straight.
The first set was a domi-
nant showing with the 25-11
win, and while the other two
were more competitive, there
really wasn't a serious threat
as the Lady Dragons won 25-
17 and 25-16.
Perhaps it was a bit of a
tired and let-down team that
took the floor in Monday's
season home opener against
Hardee.
But it says something that
even with that being the case,
the Lady Dragons pulled off a
three-game sweep against the
overmatched Lady Wildcats.
"We really weren't sharp,"
setter Julie Shrewsbury said.
"We're a little tired and we
have a tendency sometimes to
play down to our opponents
level."
Still, the match win wasn't
real close, though Hardee did

and finally win."
Tomlinson would end the
evening with 11 aces, and
would bring the Lady
Devils out of the early hole
they had dug themselves
into.
"We struggled with our
communications and were
running into each other in
the first two games," said
Tomlinson.


"But we got mad, and
then we started to play like
a team and we fought
back," added the feisty
Lady Devil.
The win puts Avon Park
1-1 in the district, and sets
Hardee back to 0-2.

game scores more respectable.
After a 25-10 thrashing in
the first set, the Wildcats kept
things close in the early going
of the second.
It was tied at 7-7 before
kills by Tiffany Bisby and
Jessica Wantuck helped push
the home team lead to 14-8.
Hardee fought back, getting
to within 19-15, but a 6-1 run
closed it out for the 25-16 win.
It seemed the battle was
fully joined in the third set,
with the Lady Wildcats jump-
ing out to a 4-0 lead, but
Olivia Goolsby served Lake
Placid back to a 5-4 lead from
which they would never trail.
It went back and forth for a
bit, but it was just a matter of
time before the Dragons
pulled away for the 25-15 win.
The team gets a chance to
rest up and enjoy Homecoming
