Commissioners


send sheriff's


facility out to bid


By TREY CHRISTY
Irt y chirn (;it'i/ n 'i q .cowi
'SEBRING Amid con-
. cerns-from the public, both
voiced through commis-
sioners themselves and
those in attendance, the new
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office facility will go out to
bid.
"Three of us can say go
ahead or stop but obviously
we've placed great weight
on the input from the sher-
iff," Commissioner Barbara
Stewart said in response to a
question during Tuesday's
board of county commis-
sioners meeting.
The question she referred
to asked the board whether
the project's success
depended on the support of
Sheriff Susan Benton or if
the decision lay solely up to
the board, citing the
expense during an unstable
time in the economy.
"It is very hard to go
against all the experts
including our staff and the
Sheriff's Department,"
Stewart said.
During the meeting, the
word 'depression' was even
spoken by Commissioner C.
Guy Maxcy when talking
about funding the projected
$11.1 million building.
"Over the last week or
two I've heard the word
depression mentioned by
some pretty big whigs, pret-


ty high up people in this
country, Maxcy said. "It's
got me a little scared, not to
say that I'm getting cold -
feet to do this building but "
just to, say, our ability to
pay back."
Maxcy was reassured by
County Administrator
Michael Wright that they
could still make the pay-
ments on the 10-year loan
even if sales tax revenues
dropped, by nearly 70 per-
cent.
"That would be a pretty
catastrophic event," Wright
said.
Chief of Staff for the
Highlands, County Sheriff's
Office Lisa Burley said
Benton asked her to start
reserving funds to defray
the upcoming expenses.
The HCSO already ,has
$1.2 million in reserve to
fund "fixtures and equip-
ment" for the new building,
she said..,
"We will start saving now
and several months ago
started looking at the cost to
operate the facility in
2010," Burley said. "We
haven't been working in a
vacuum ... we know what
these costs will be and are
prepared."
Maxcy referenced the
consumer price index and
said, using that to gauge the
cost, waiting on the project

Avon Park Council approves 2008-09 budget


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK The Avon
Park City Council voted to
approve the fiscal year 2008-
2009. budget Monday night
during its regular meeting.
The $15.4 million budget
reflects a 27 percent decrease
in operating expenditures over
last year.
"We cut about $5 million
out of our expenditures,"
Avon Park City Manager
Sarah Adelt said.
A falling tax base con-
tributed to some of the budget
cuts. The tax base of Avon
Park fell by 5.2 percent, drop-
ping from $267 million last


year to $254 million, but most
of the cuts reflected a pes-
simistic outlook for the
national economy.
"We know we have to oper-
ate leaner, and'we are making
every effort to do that," Adelt
said.,
One of the areas cut back by
the city includes pay raises for
city employees.
"We have eliminated rais-
es," Adelt said. "And we have
eliminated one position and
frozen several others. We are
doing everything we can to
make sure we have a balanced
budget with these changes."
Councilman Joe Wright


said, "There'is no question our
local economy is struggling
right now. I am convinced that
the state will continue to
decrease their projections for
tangible and sales tax every
quarter, and that means less
revenue for Avon Park, but I
feel comfortable that we have
cut out everything we can. We
even have a bit of a safety net
that we can cut further."
Hardest hit with the budget
cuts was the city police
department. Since the city
decided to combine resources
with the county with dispatch-
ing, several dispatch positions
were eliminated.
To reverse the trend of


decreasing revenues, Avon
Park department heads and the
council are looking at alterna-
tive means of generating cash
or saving further. .
"I am excited about the
KVAR project at the water and
sewer plants," Wright said.
The KVAR unit saves elec-
tricity by reducing the amount
of power used by inductive
equipment like large motors
that drive pumps.
All motors use more elec-
tricity than is needed to oper-
ate. Electrical engineers call it
"non-productive current.".
That's why motors are hot to
the touch ... the excessive,
unused current is expressed as


heat.
The KVAR technology
evens out the electrical usage
and eliminates the need to
draw .more power from the
electric company over 24
hours.
According to Freddie
Renfro, Avon Park's working
foreman for the water and
waste water departments, the
two installations of the KVAR
units have already saved the
city more than $670 per
month.
During the discussion of the
budget, the council also
directed Renfro to continue
with the KVAR project instal-
lations.

Avon Park council sets village rate


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK The Avon
Park City Council voted by
resolution Monday night to
set the property tax millage
rate.
By unanimous decision, the
approval of Resolution 08-17
set the millage rate for fiscal
year 2008-2009 to 6.3017 per
.$1,000 valuation.
An 8.2 percent decrease
over the 2007-2008 fiscal
year millage "roll back" rate
of 7.5 percent.
Although the millage rate is
lower, Avon Park tax payers
will see about the same
amount on their tax bill.


"The millage rate is exactly
the same as it was last year
but it is actually 8.2 percent
of what the rollback rate
would have been, so we are
backing up 8.2 percent," said
financial director Renee
Green.
The millage rate (also
known as the tax rate) is a fig-
ure applied to the value of
your property to calculate
your property tax liability.
One "mill" is $1 of tax on
every $1,000 of taxable value.
The decreased millage rate
can be attributed mainly to
the increase in revenues
caused by the recent hike in
property values.


The term "roll-back" is
used to describe the economic
conditions of total taxable
value in the prior year and the
amount of monies raised by
ad-valorem taxes. It does not
relate to the rate of change in
the millage.
Since there is almost
always growth in property
values, a taxing authority, like
the city of Avon Park, "rolls
back" the millage to a lower
number, but still tax payers
usually pay about the same in
taxes since the property val-
ues went up.
And the governing body
about the same revenue.


Hooper, long time scout master, dies


News-Sun staff
AVON PARK Highlands
County, especially Avon Park,
lost a good friend in scouting
with the passing of Larry
Hooper.
Hooper, 75, died Friday,
Sept. 12, after a short illness
in Ashville, N.C. where his
mountain home is.
Named the Judge Clifton
M. Kelly Champion for
Children in 2004, Hooper
became Boy Scout Troop
156's first scout master and
spent more than 35 years with
the troop in various roles,
organizing and directing
scouting, camping, travel and
service activities designed to
teach character as well as
skills to boys across Central
Florida. He also spearheaded
the conception, design and
financing of the Boy Scout
House in Avon Park, seeing
the project through to com-
pletion.
While doing all of this, he
also served on district Boy
Scouts of America leadership
teams.
He told the News-Sun in
2004 that scouting helped him
as a child because he was
"about as coordinated-asa--
soup sandwich."
His wife, Alma, stood by
him all the way. She would
oversee pancake breakfasts
and chicken barbecues for the
troop, acting as first lady of
the troop.
When the lodge was
renamed in early 2004, it was
named the Hooper Lodge,
honoring both Hoopers.
"Larry Hooper was larger
than life. He was a mentor to
hundreds of kids who just
needed the one thing all chil-
dren crave, time. Larry made
the time, no matter his sched-
ule, to invest in others.
"On three different occa-
sions, when leadership was
scarce, Larry stepped up as
head of Boy Scout Troop 156
to serve as Scoutmaster. He
invested his energy in our
community through Rotary
and for 32 years he made time
in his career for his students
as an electronics professor.
Yet through all his life, Larry
still was flexible enough to
eat dinner every evening with
his wife and make memories
with his children," former
scout Jeff Roth said of his
friend.
"I will miss the time we
spent sitting on his front
porch reminiscing about our
adventures. Today time seems
to be my biggest nemesis. I
struggle to find the balance he
found. The world seems a lit-
tle less exciting without my
friend. I am reminded of his
classic salutation, 'I'll see
you on the trail,' Roth said.
Hooper was the fifth recip-
ient of the Champion for
Children award, which will
presented for the ninth time
Thursday night.
Alma Hooper said her hus-
band had a tremendous love
for the outdoors. Second to
scouting, they enjoyed grow-
ing orchids and other tropical
foliage.
Larry Hooper founded the
electronic department at
South Florida Community
College, teaching radio and
television repair back when
most televisions were black
and white and the college was
located in the Brickell build-

Aktion Club takes action in


planting garden for museum


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK As mem-
bers of the Aktion Club
stepped back away from the
Avon Park Depot Museum
garden late Saturday morn-
ing they applauded their
efforts as the sprinkler sys-
tem was turned on to water
the new plants.
The Aktion Club, a civic
club for people with disabil-
ities that is sponsored by the
Kiwanis Club of Sebring,
began the garden project at
the museum last month by
tearing out the old diseased
plants and shrubs. Aktion
Club president Ralph
Meyers worked on the irriga-
tion by installing new sprin-
kler tubing and stakes donat-
ed by Ridge Area Arc.
"I helped out with the irri-
gation, spreading the mulch
and tearing out the old plants
to put in the new ones,"
Meyers said.
Ten club members
returned last Saturday to put
the finishing touches ,on the
project by planting-the new
plants partially donated by
Sunshine Nursery in
Sebring. The garden consist-
ed of arbicola, iris and aztec
grass. Rocks from the former
Lake Byrd Lodge in Avon
Park were placed in the cen-
ter as a focal point and
cypress mulch was laid
around the entire garden.
"The club has rewritten
the book on community
service," said Larry Levey,
president of the Historical
Society of Avon Park. "Not
only did they donate their
time and talents for this proj-
ect, they also donated $100
to us to help pay for the
plants. And to top it all off,
when they were done, one
Aktion Club member said to
me, 'Thanks for letting us do
this work for you.' Kiwanis

scoring the club."
"It's very important to
help the community and give
back to the community
because they helped me with
my house when it was being
built," Meyers said.
The newest member,
Gerald Bass of Sebring, said,
"I planted plants at my
mom's house so I liked
planting plants a lot at the
train depot. I like to keep the
place real clean do people
riding b'y on the trains can
see it."
Bass and Meyers worked
with Mark Anderson, Terry
Richardson and Patrick
Patterson on the garden.
Each was given a task in the
garden.
"We worked good as a
team in the garden,"
Anderson, of Avon Park,
said.
While the men of the
Aktion Club worked on the
garden, the ladies from the
club cleaned the inside of the
dining car next to the muse-
um.
"We scrubbed the pipe
where they cook on (a warm-
ing unit) and we did the cup-
boards, run the sweeper, did
the windows, wiped tables
and dusted," former Aktion
Club secretary Rose Tilley
said.

Tilley was joined by Eva

Museum and dining car
director Elaine Levey was
clearly pleased and
relieved when the projects
were completed Saturday. "I
haven't been able to main-
tain the garden and dining
car like I wanted to, so this
has been a real blessing. And
this was not just a one-day
affair. They'll be taking care
of the garden on a weekly
basis and they'll come back
to the dining car whenever
we need them."
Anderson is volunteering
at the museum every
Wednesday and will main-
tain the garden for the club.
The Avon Park Youth
Academy also donated items
for the garden.
"The Aktion Club is here
to help other individuals in
our community," Meyers
said. "We are hoping to do
more projects in the commu-
nity such as the museum."

ity who would like to join
the Aktion Club or anyone
who has a community serv-
ice project needing to be
done can contact Rhonda

Election policy
A reminder to all of our
readers that the News-Sun will
not print any letters concern-
ing a candidate or political
issue during the two weeks
prior to an election. This cool-
ing off period is so that our
readers will have a clear mind
of the issues when they go to
the polls.
The last date for such let-
ters to be printed will be Oct.
19. The only exception will be
for rebuttals, which must be
printed Oct. 22.


or those who, grump that not much happens in Highlands
County consider Thursday night: Four major events rep-
resenting a broad range of interests are occurring, from
remembering a loved one, to celebrating hard work, to helping
shape the future, to simply having fun; it is a dazzling array.


For those who care about keeping wild places
safe, for example, the U. S. Fish and Wildlife
Service is having an open meeting at the South
Florida Community College Auditorium at 5:30
p.m. so citizens may have a chance to com-
ment, question and advise on the
Comprehensive Conservation Plan currently
under development. The plan will guide long-
term management of the Lake Wales Ridge
National Wildlife Refuge.
The wildlife service will have handouts and
poster materials for people to review and staff
available to answer questions.
Bill Miller, a Fish & Wildlife biologist, said,
"Participation is critical to the success of this
planning process. Only then can effective man-
agement be developed .which reflects your
interests."
So there is that.
Then, more live music is in store at the
Historic Circle in Sebring as the Heartland Idol
continues. The sound sweetens with each suc-
cessive round.

Miracle League
starts second season
Editor:
Soon the cry "Play ball"
will echo through Lake June
ball field in Lake Placid, ush-
ering in the second season of
Miracle League play. I am
writing this letter as an open
invitation to all readers to join
us for the upcoming season.
Miracle League is a base-
ball league for individuals
..with .cognitive or physical
disabilities. For some-. f our
athletes, last year's inaugural
season was the first chance
they had to play organized
sports. We had more than 70
athletes and over 100 "bud-
dies," which far exceeded our
expectations. Our athletes
ranged from ages 3-65, and
came from all over Highlands
County as well as four nearby


counties.
The response by volunteers
to act as buddies, called
"Angels in the Outfield," was
strong last year, and we hope
for another great buddy turn
out.
This year we are also
launching a "Fans in the
Stands" campaign in an effort
to get people to come out and
cheer .on our teams.
If you've never joined us
for a Miracle League game, I
invite you to come see 'an
exceptional display of deter-
mination and caring as our
players work -hard to realize
their potential through sports.
Miracle League orientation
"fun day" for all athletes,
buddies, and coaches is
Saturday, Sept. 27th at 9 a.m.
at the Lake June ball fields in
Lake Placid. For more infor-

Center, the Highlands County Farm Bureau
hosts its annual meeting with its traditional
beef and pork dinner. In addition to presenting
money to every high and middle school FFA
program in the county, the first Mason G.
Smoak Award which will be given to a
friend of agriculture will be accepted, inau-
gurated, by Mason's widow, Tracee.
We think celebrating friends of agriculture is
a perfect way to remember Mason- a man who
lived his life as a true friend; a man who will
always be missed.
Then there is one of the most elegant dinners
of the year and more good people.
The Ninth Annual Judge Clifton M. Kelly
Champion for Children Award is being held at
the Restoration Center.
The focus of the evening is to bring attention
to those in the community who work tirelessly
behind the scene serving, protecting and
enhancing the lives of children.
These people are just as much heroes as first
responders. Without their day-in, day-out,
patient and persistent work, thousands of chil-

A few more points to
consider
Editor:
Reference letter to the edi-
tor in Sunday, Sept. 7 issue of


dren would fall through the cracks, becoming a
danger or drain to society, instead of fulfilled
human beings eager to be a positive force in the
world.
We join with the Children's Service Council
and Foundation to congratulate the seven final-
ists:
Lt. John Chess of the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office and the new director of the
Special Victims Unit; Edna Jackson, a retired
teacher and still active foster mother; Velma
Lumpkin, the heart and soul of the Avon Park
Community Child Development Center;
Jacqueline Rawlings, an adoptive mother and
supervisor of the Healthy Start Program; Russ
Sharp, a guidance counselor at Avon Park High
School and creator of Freshman Preview Night;
John Varady, a Lake Placid Elementary School
teacher of special education and Special
Olympics coach; and Dennis Ward, a child pro-
tective investigator for the Department of
Children and Families.
We thank you all for your service, and even
more for your effort and care.
At the risk of bragging there aren't many
communities that can turn up so many worthy
people year after year, raise so many wonderful
voices, or create such enjoyable, memorable,
crowded nights.

the News-Sun, "Don't blame
the Republicans' of wasted
Taxes," by David A. Holland
of Sebring.
Mr. Holland, I found your
letter intriguing, but I cannot
figure out whether it is hither
or nether or maybe satirically.
However, here are a few
points you might have over-
looked.
A. It is difficult to under-
stand how the Democrats
could run the federal govern-
ment for the 40-year period
(1993-2001) when one notes
that this period was unbeliev-
ably split exactly even
between the Republicans and
Democrats. Each party had 20
years of control, of five presi-
dential terms, with four presi-
dents. These presidents listed
by party and terms are
Republican: Nixon, Ford,
G.H. Bush and Reagan;
Democrat: Kennedy, Johnson,
Carter and Clinton. Then toss
in the thought that the
Republicans had the advan-
tage of having a two-term
Republican (Eisenhower)
leading into the critical 40
years and another two terms
Republican (G.W. Bush) in
the clean up position.
B. It must have been a
mighty big ditch that the
Democrats got us into by
2001; here it is eight years
later and the ditch is not any
smaller but seems to' be get-
ting bigger or at least deeper.
For example: 1. The
National Debt has increased
and still increasing many,
many folds.
2. We became engaged in a
questionable horrible war
with not only the catastrophic


cost in money and resources
but in the thousands of troops
killed, wounded, lamed, crip-
pled, disfigured and/or men-
tally damaged, etc.
3. The significant loss in
value of the American dollar
on the international scene.
Prior to 2001 the American
dollar was at a premium but
now, 2008, it has slid to poor
returns (some say as much as
a 40 percent loss).
4. The sudden and unex-
pecte'd@ffise in the, cost,'df
petroleuin "(noted mostly :by
Americans in the cost of a
gallon of gasoline). Gasoline
in the eight years preceding
2001 could be had for: $1.11
in 1993 and went to $1.47 in
2001, an increase of only 36
cents in eight years. Then in
the next three years it rose to
$1.82 in 2004, an increase of
another 35 cents; and then in
less than three years went to
well over $4 by 2007, a jump
of over $2.18.
5. We don't want to forget,
the serious price problem is
not confined to gasoline, but
to all petroleum products,
such as diesel fuel, heating,
power production and plas-
tics. It is possible that the
add-ons caused by the petro-
leum products increases, will
be more of a problem than the
increase in just the gasoline.
It will be most interesting
to see what happens in the
November elections and the
resultant actions taken. I
believe that the latter part of
your letter means you intend
to support Barack Obama and
Joe, if that's so, that is good.

LEAP brings valuable information to tri-county area


The Environmental
Protection Agency considers
childhood lead poisoning the
number one preventable envi-
ronmental health hazard.
Florida ranks eighth in the
nation for the estimated number
of children with elevated blood
lead levels. Lead poisoning is a
serious threat to a child's
behavioral and cognitive devel-
opment, leaving lifelong impli-
cations.
Although lead paint is the
most common source of lead
poisoning, lead contaminated
dust is the most common path-
way 'for exposure. Dust is
released from paint when win-
dows and doors are opened and
closed, and dry dusting and vac-
uuming can actually spread dust
throughout a house. "Dust from
'take home exposure' can also
be a source for lead contamina-


tion so parents work- Gi
ing in lead-related jobs
should change clothes Col
at work and wash lizab
those clothes separate-
ly from other items," said
Teresa Kelly, special projects
coordinator with the Health
Council of West Central
Florida.
The Health Council received
a one year grant from the EPA
to raise community awareness
and reduce the incidence of
childhood lead poisoning in
Highlands, Hardee and Polk
counties. The age of the hous-
ing stock, rates of elevated
blood levels and immigrant
populations present in these
counties made them targets for
lead poisoning prevention
efforts. In addition the 2004
hurricanes may have caused
lead hazards due to improper


eu

5et


est work practices during
repairs.
Imn The Lead
h Rugg Education and
Awareness Project's
activities included the forma-
tion of a Task Force to provide
guidance on community educa-
tion and the development of a
Strategic Plan. The EPA grant
ends Sept. 30, but the Health
Council will continue to moni-
tor activities for up to two
years. Resources are limited in
rural health counties but the
Health Council hopes that best
practices identified through the
EPA grant will be replicated in
other rural areas of Florida.
Members of the Task Force
included: Cynthia Goldstein-
Hart, epidemiologist, Polk
County Health Department;
Kelly Johnson, health planning
director, Heartland Rural


Health Network; Timothy
Mitchell, environment supervi-
sor, Polk County Health
Department; Dr. Marcia Posey,
Florida Southern College of
Nursing; Donna Stayton, health
educator, Highlands County
Health Department; and
Carolyn H. Wyatt, extension
agent III, UF IFAS Hardee
County Extension.
LEAP used three educational
approaches to reach the com-
munity and make people aware
of the dangers of lead poisoning
in children.
First, LEAP designed and
distributed a Physician Tool Kit
to 200 family practice physi-
cians and pediatricians in the
tri-country area. The kit was
designed to educate the physi-
cian on lead and the importance
for screening children for lead
exposure. A Childhood Lead


Poisoning Screening and Case
Management Guide was includ-
ed in the Tool Kit, along with a
poster for the waiting area or
examination room and articles
from the Journal of the
American Medical Association
and the Academy of Pediatrics
Journal.
Second, Train the Trainer
sessions were conducted in
Highlands, Hardee and Polk
counties to provide information
on lead poisoning and preven-
tion to staff from the health
department, community health
centers, Healthy Start, Early
Learning Coalition as well as
school nurses. The sessions also
taught participants about differ-
ent training techniques so they
could offer lead presentations in
the community.
Third, Lead Safe Work
Practices Training was present-


ed in Bartow and Sebring.
Participants from city and coun-
ty code enforcement, health
departments, housing and
weatherization providers and
home renovators learned how to
use lead safe practices. In 2010,
contractors who renovate resi-
dences, schools and day care
centers will be required to have
certification in lead safe prac-
tices.
For more information on lead
paint, call the National Lead
Information Hotline at 1-800-
424-LEAD or go to
www.epa.gov/lead.
For information on LEAP,
please contact Kathey LaRoche
at (727) 217-7070 or at
klaroche@healthcouncils.org.

tor of Health Council of West

Three jailed after late-night


burglary and dangerous pursuit


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands County Deputy
Sheriff Richard Williams, who had just ended
his shift, was heading home in an unmarked
vehicle about 2:30 a.m. Monday when he
drove by the Raceway gas station at 5100 US
27 South and observed a burglary in progress
a t the closed station.
^ Because he was in an unmarked vehicle he
tbok up surveillance and called for assistance
from on-duty deputies. Before deputies could
arrive, the suspects became suspicious and
fled in a gray colored van, heading south on
U.S. 27 and then west on S.R. 66.
Williams followed the vehicle, which was
occupied by an unknown number of suspects
and called in his location to responding
deputies. At one point, the suspects threw a
safe out of the back of the van in an attempt to
,stop Deputy Williams from following them.
The suspect vehicle then abruptly did a U-turn
and headed directly towards Williams, trying
to ram his vehicle and causing him to take eva-
sive action to avoid a collision and a possible
injury.
Williams turned around on the suspect vehi-
icle, still giving chase and calling in is location
to responding deputies. Upon reaching the.
;intersection of U.S. 27 and S.R. 66, the sus-
ipects' vehicle turned south on U.S. 27 towards
Lake Placid. Deputies were at the Josephine
iCreek Bridge and deployed tire deflating
,devises. The suspect van continued on to Lake
'Placid, where three suspects fled the van on
foot in different directions.
Sheriff's Office K-9s began searching and


one suspect was arrested after he tried to steal
another vehicle. Two other suspects were later
located and arrested in a wooded area.
Arrested were: Renny Arthur, 36, from
Alva; Dedric Gandy, 31, from Fort Myers; and
Joshua Wilson, 22, from Lehigh Acres.
The investigation revealed that the gray van
was stolen from the New Life Way Church in
Sebring. Stolen from the Raceway store was a
safe with an undetermined amount of money,
which was recovered. Deputies also learned
that the suspects broke into the Caddy Shack
restaurant in Sebring, where a safe and TV
were stolen and since have been recovered.
The Highlands County Sheriff Office, in
cooperation with the Sebring and Lake Placid
police departments, were able to make numer-
ous charges of burglary, grand theft, and
attempted murder against the three men.
Deputies believe it is possible that there was
a fourth suspect and another vehicle involved
with the Raceway gas station burglary. The
Highlands County Sheriff's Office is asking
residents to call in any suspicious vehicle that
appears abandoned or left at a vacant resi-
dence.
Witnesses or persons with information may
also call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS
(8477) to make an anonymous report and be
eligible for a cash reward.

Sheriff's Office.


Not the first complaint of alleged verbal abuse


Continued from page 1A
:Deputy Jeff Hohnstreitg
vsponded to the Lakeshore
all store about 12:30 p.m.,
Even years ago.
t, Benton was a lieutenant.
,Ray McCart, 68, was the
dmplainant.
t:According to Hohnstreitg's
report, Benton became agitat-
dd when she couldn't get her
Tponey back on an item
clearlyy marked" that it didn't
qualify for refunds.
---"We explained that no
fund was possible," McCart
A td Hohnstreitg. "She along
with two white male(s)
became verbally abusive, ask-
ing other customers to leave
an(d) using profanity, includ-
ing the 'f' word."


McCart reportedly asked
Benton to leave the store, or
he'd call the police.
"She then stated that she
was the police," McCart
wrote in a voluntary state-
ment. "I called 911 and asked
for a deputy. She then called
dispatch herself."
Four people are listed as
witnesses.
When Hohnstreitg arrived
at the mall, he linked up with
Benton first.
Her version confirmed the
store wouldnT fundd an
unspecified product.
"She advised that McCart
got very loud and was being
an (expletive deleted)-hole,"
Hohnstreitg said in his report.
"She then took her merchan-


dise and left the store."
Benton, who's only been
investigated once b\ her
department's Internal Affairs
division, didn't recall
McCart's information inci-
dent report.
McCart's. allegations didn't
.esult in an internal in'estiga-
tion, else, she would d ha'e
been more familiar with the
details.
She did recall an incident
when her sons had become
-argumenta(ive with some ')
at a mall store, but she didn't
remember the particulars.
"I went in there and got
them out," Benton said,
adding her sons went to
Orlando to get the refund.


Commissioner files police complaint against sheriff


*Continued from page 1A
She accused Stewart of
belittling her staff from the
commissioner's "bully pulpit"
and of intimidating county
staff to the point they dread
coming before her during
Tuesday's commission meet-
ings.
"In my opinion, I didn't
Siitimidate her in any way and
Ao threats were made,"
;Benton said, though that's
what she's hearing Stewart
allege.
, Stewart didn't comment on
the incident, except to con-
firm she spoke with Dettman
and explain why.
"I did file an information
|:statement with Sebring Police
|Department on Friday," she
(said. "I wanted to put it on the
record in case there are future
'incidents and on Wednesday
,and Thursday I was hearing
exaggerated reports of the
(incident."
I Commissioner C. Guy
1Maxcy said he witnessed the
event, but hadn't been ques-
tioned by SPD or any law
enforcement agency by 2:30
p.m. Monday.
"She let the argument get
away from her," Maxcy said


of Benton, explaining he was
leaving the budget hearing
about 9:30 p.m. when he saw
the women.
Maxcy said Benton's vehi-
cle was curbside in the park-
ing lot on the south side of the
Government Center, where
the commissioners park.
Stewart was still seated
inside her car.
The driver-side window
was down and Benton was
standing at Stewart's door, he
said.
Seeing what he described
as a "heated argument,"
Maxcy was concerned enough
to pull over and ask the
women to calm down.
"It was just me breaking up
an argument," Maxcy said.
"Susan said, 'I'm pretty upset
with Barbara because she puts
out misinformation about the
Sheriff's Office.'"
Considering that they were
in a parking lot after a sever-
al-hours-long budget public
hearing at night, Maxcy said
he told them it wasn't the time
nor place for this.
"I didn't want to hear
explanations," he said
Monday. "I wanted to hear
'OK' and see them leaving."


It appeared they took his
advice, Maxcy said.
Commission Chairman
Edgar Stokes said that by the
time he reached the parking
lot, he saw Benton leaning
into Maxcy's passenger side
window.
He also saw a black car,
which he presumed to be the
sheriff's private vehicle,
behind Stewart's car and
blocking her from leaving.
Stokes had to back out at a
sharp angle.
"I just got in my truck and
left," Stokes said, explaining
he saw nothing that concerned
him.
Stokes hadn't been inter-
viewed by law enforcement
by 3:30 p.m. Monday.
Stewart said her informa-
tion report, once released,
will explain her version of the
story.
"I apologize if she felt in
any way intimidated or threat-
ened," Benton said.
Benton said Stewart didn't
raise her voice.
"If I did," the sheriff said.
"That's just my personality.
I'm very animated."


Commissioners send sheriffs facility to bid


Continued from page 1A
could be more costly than
the public citizens in atten-
dance thought.
"It's going to cost, by my
calculations, cost another
couple million dollars,"
Maxcy said about waiting on
the project three or four
years.
Ian Reeves, project archi-
tect and vice president of the
Architect Design Group Inc.,
agreed.
"I don't think there is
going to be .a better time to
move forward with the proj-
ect that's already funded,
already in your budget and is
going to meet the functional
needs and requirements of
the sheriff," he said.
He cited similar construc-
tion techniques for another
of his company's projects,
the police department in
Cape Coral.
The building was $19.1
million to construct, which
was $3.9 million under
budget.
"We hope we will have
some kind of the same
accomplishments here as
well," Reeves said, citing
cheap labor in the construc-
tion field.
A proposed so-called cost
saving technique was
brought up by Burley to dis-
credit talk she has heard in
the community. It was in ref-
erence to taking an old
building and renovating it at
a much cheaper cost.
"That's not true at all,"
Burley said.
Using the new
Kindergarten Learning
Center as an example, reno-
vated b\ The School Board
of Hiehlands Count\. she
cited i price ot $2!7 per
square fool.
"Their needs are a little
different from la% enforce-
ment and e.en though it's a
great project it as not done

Other."
International Peace Day
is actually Sept. 21.
Burnham said students
across the world celebrat-
ed the day Monday.
According to pin-
wheelsforpeace.com, the
event is an art installation
project started in 2005 by
two art teachers, Ann
Ayers and Ellen
McMillan, who teach at
Monarch High School in
Coconut Creek, as a way
for students to express
their feelings about what's
going on in the world and
in their lives. The project
was quickly embraced by
their students and the
entire school community 4
and by millions of art
teachers, teachers, par-
ents, children and adults
who desire peace in our
world.


at minimal cost," Burley
said. "I did check with Mike
Averyt (director of Business
Operations) with the school
board and that's the actual
cost."
By comparison, Reeves
quoted a price of $190 per
square foot for the police
department in Cape Coral.
"It's just not a viable
alternative," Reeves said
about retrofitting an older
building to accommodate the
needs of law enforcement.
"The components that we
have to put into these types
of facilities don't marry well
for that."
When the talk moved to
the 21 construction compa-
nies that requested to be
included in the bid process,
there was more heated dis-
cussion.
Initially the top eight
companies would be able to
bid if the agenda item
passed, but the commission-
ers thought expanding the
option to more companies
would create more competi-
tion.
"We need to pull out all
the stops here," Maxcy said.
The companies were rated
on numerous factors their
perceived ability to get the
job done and their past expe-
rience, including accommo-
dating law enforcement by
a panel of six. The panel was
made up of three personnel
from the county offices with
engineering experience and


three personnel from the
HCSO.
A motion was made to
extend bids to the top 16 of
the 21 companies.
"It's a little scary when
you drop down to 16," said
Burley, who was on the
panel that rated the compa-
nies.
Some had comments
about previous projects that
went over budget, or said it
wasn't a good relationship,
among other problems, she
said.
"(In some) there were
financial difficulties," she
said. "That's why they were
not ranked (in the top
eight)."
Commissioner Don Bates
was the only dissenting
voice when commissioners
passed the motion to extend
the bid process to the top 16
companies.
"It's not worth the risk,"
he said. "I think we'll get
(enough competition from
eight)."
Purchasing Director
Gerald "Jed" Secory reas-
sured the board that the
county is "very stringent
with every contractor."
"Yes, it's scary to have 16
but ... we will stay on top of
this," he said. "Eight would
be competition, don't get me
wrong, but if there are any
problems as it goes out to
bid, we will be handling
these questions."

Special to the News-Sun
Northwest Services
Peace Program is looking
for 15 caring families to
host high school students
(15-18 years old) from
various countries for the
2008-2009 school year.
There are few opportuni-
ties in this world where an
individual can take an
active hand in making the
world a better place.
This is such an oppor-
tunity.
It is the time of year
when Americans every-
where are considering
opening their hearts and
homes to one of these
teens. NWS Peace
Program asks local fami-
lies to consider showing
one of these foreign teens
what America is all about.
Students from Brazil,
Germany, Thailand,
Vietnam and several other
countries are anxious to
learn what family will
help them launch their
dream of spending a year
in America.
All the students are pre-
screened. They speak
English, have medical
insurance and their .own
spending money.
Those who are interest
edshould contact NWS
Peace Program toll free at

important.
There were 3,100 third-


through eighth-graders from
across Florida that received
such acclaim. To find a quali-
fied individual, teachers were
asked to only consider stu-
dents with a B average or
higher. The students that were
nominated are very involved

By PHYLLIS HANSON
Army and Air Force Hometown
News Service
LANDSTUHL, Germany -
,aring for wounded or ill
\,arriors is top priority for the
'daughter of an Avon Park man


who works at the largest
American hospital outside the
United States.
Navy Reserve Lt. Eileen
Ann Hernandez, daughter of
Edward Brosi of Avon Park,
knows the realities and results


of the war against ter-
rorism.
Hernandez is a nurse
deployed to Landstuhl
Regional Medical
Center, located amid
the forested hills above
Landstuhl, a cottage- Her
nestled village town in
the Rheinland-Pfalz region of
Germany. She is part of a
medical professional team
responsible for the care of
patients, most coming from
two well-known, war-torn
countries Iraq and
Afghanistan.
The wounded are flown to
nearby Ramstein Air Base and
rushed to the hospital by the
U.S. Air Force's 435th
Contingency Aeromedical


Contingency Facility
team who work hand
in hand with the
LRMC team to ensure
the fastest care possi-
ble.
Hernandez works
nandez 12-hour shifts caring
for wounded service
members, dependents and
civilians. She graduated from
Old Dominion University in
Norfolk, Va., earning her
nursing degree in 2002.
Hernandez's team comes
together by an extensive net-
work of care for servicemem-
bers' needs from medical and
rehabilitation, to nutrition and
spiritual guidance. Since
2003, a "total force" of Air
Force, Army Navy active


duty, Reserve and Guard
members has provided sup-
port and care for more than
80,000 patients. They tend to
the needs of military depend-
ents and Department of
Defense employees living in
the region as well.
"Without us here, patient
care would be poor. We were
deployed as a navy company
to fill the gap so that full-time
active duty nurses would have
some relief with the overload
of patients coming from
downrange, as well as local
patients," Hernandez said.
Despite the long hours and
working in one of the more
stressful jobs in the military,
Hernandez lives in an idyllic
background that few


Americans get the privilege to
experience.
"Living in Germany is a
challenge with the language
barrier and learning, the cus-
toms. But learning the cus-
toms and language and being
able to travel in Europe are
great opportunities," said
Hernandez. She has been
Navy Reserve activated since
October 2007. Her home sta-
tion is in Tampa, and her main
reserve station is in
Jacksonville.
Hernandez' father is retired
Navy, and her husband is
retired Army. One of her sons
is in the Army and has been to
Iraq three' times; her other son
is in the Air Force.

squadrons and units offload a wounded warrior being
returned from the Middle East. Landstuhl Regional Medical
Center located in Germany is often the first stop for wound-
ed service members and civilians leaving the wars in Iraq
and Afghanistan.


Auto owners can now register

vehicles every two years


Special to the News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE-The
Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles continues to find
innovative ways to to
improve customer service and
offer more convenience
options. Motorists can now
choose to renew their vehicle
registration for two years
rather than doing it each year.
; Now, when a motorist
'chooses the two-year renewal,
they will receive a license
plate decal with an additional
year added to the expiration
date. For example, if youi
expiration date is February
2008 and you request the two-
year renewal period, your
new expiration date will be
January 2010. Through
August, more than 490,239
customers have taken advan-
tage of this convenient
.option. Biennial registration
also is available online at


www.GoRenew.com.
"Thanks to the Legislature,
our residents now have the
option to save time by renew-
ing only once every two
years, rather than each year.
Vehicle owners will still be
required to renew their tags
by their birthdays, as usual,
but those who opt to renew
for two years get to skip a
year," said Carl Ford, director
of the Division of Motor
Vehicles.
For added convenience, the
Department encourages
motorists to conduct their
business transactions online
by logging on to
www.GoRenew.com.
Customers can renew their
vehicle registration, driver
license, disabled parking per-
mit, or mobile home registra-
tion as well as notify the
Department of an address
change from the comfort of
their own home.

Rotary history


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Avon
Park Rotary Club History
Committee chairman Dr.
Ron Sevigny recently
scheduled a program featur-
ing Rotarians with signifi-
cant longevity with the
club. Each Rotarian was
given three minutes to
describe a memorable expe-
rience during their tenure
with the club.
The term "mossy back"
was originally used in an
attendance contest the club
instituted several years ago
to identify more senior
members as opposed to rel-
atively new members.
Those members who
shared their memories


included Kenny Long, with
36 years; David Lanier, a
Rotarian for 54 years; Bob
Barben, 57 years; Bud
Worden, with 40 years;
Stanley Wells, 32 years;
Don Farrens, 37 years; and
Charlie Collins, with 43
years.
The club meets every
Wednesday at 12:15 p.m. at
The Rotary Building, 20 S.
Verona Ave. Rotarians plan
and carry out a variety of
humanitarian, educational,
and culture exchange pro-
grams that touch people's
lives in their local commu-
nities and our world com-
munity. For more informa-
tion, contact President
Forrest Hilton at 452-1452.

that more students entering the public
school system need help in reaching

choose the grade level, the focus is on
the first three years of school, the form-
ative years.
The large budget cuts for public
school education this year limit the
school resources to meet the needs of so
,many students, so the great cadre of
County volunteers can come to the res-
cue.

FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS


Sebring
Recreation Club
By Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING I hope that
you are thinking about joining
the club, if you are not
already a member. Line danc-
ing on Wednesday evening is
about to get even larger. If
you are dancing on other
nights try dancing with us
midweek. We still have room
for a few more dancers. One
club member, Margaret
White, even dances after-
noons as well as evenings
when she is around. Too bad
more people are not like
Margaret as far as dancers.
Have any of you seen Ed
Straub line dance? This (line
dancing) may be the only area
that our leader does not par-
ticipate in.
Your elected officers for
the year 2008-2009 are as fol-
lows: president, Ed Straub;
first vice president, Beverly
Hann; second vice president,
Carl Wile; treasurer, George
Kisel; and secretary, Judy
Holloway. They all 'do the
best that they can do for you
and the club out of love.
This year so far we have
been pleased to have Donald
Noldy travel down from
Meshopperi, Pa., to shuffle
with us. We were also very
pleased to have Harold
Cunningham travel from
Granger, Ind., to join us in
shuffling. Harold even won a
Thursday summer league
tournament with us. It is
always good to see fellow
club members at any time of
the year.
Marylyn Wile has not shuf-
fled this summer with us and
we hope that she will be able
to this fall when the weather
breaks. Gene Wolf and his
nice wife Lorraine have not
been seen much this summer
on the courts. Wally Davis
and Anna Eldredge have been
strangers also. Ruth Parker
has been only seenat tourna-
ments in which she is usually
a winner.
Many people in this area
think of shuffleboard as a
game for the retired or vaca-
tioners or people that reside in
parks only. If you should be
one of those people, oh how
wrong you are with this opin-
ion. Granted most parks have
courts and not many younger
.people play this game or even
have heard about it.
We hope that you will plan
on spending Nov. 6-7 with us
in the tournament. You will be
able to purchase your meal
with us both of these days. If
you cannot compete in the'
tournament, you should at
least plan your lunch with us.
You should also plan on the
Highlands County tournament
in Sebring on Nov. 11. No
lunch will be served at this
one so you will have to bring
your own this day. All people
that reside in Highlands
County can compete in this
one. You do not have to even
be a Florida State
Shuffleboard member to com-
pete. What a great way to get
started in tournament play


with a county tournament.
Ed O'Neal said on his last
calendar, "A good time to
keep your mouth shut is when
you pre in deep water." Have
you seen his new shuffleboard
calendar yet? Great way to
find out about tournaments
and also learn names of the
people that you see at tourna-
ments.
Love bugs will be out and
we will get busier as the sea-
son grows. Invite a new per-
son to shuffle with you, or at
least try it this year. Let's
share the sport with all of
those around us. We're at 333
Pomegranate Ave., behind the
Sebring Police Station.

LAKE PLACID Sept. 14
we had 85 residents attend the
Military Soup and Sandwich.
The committee served home-
made chicken noodle soup or
a choice of five-bean soup
along with sandwich of turkey
and Swiss cheese grilled and a
variety of delicious desserts.
Maria Hagg, who serves on
this committee, read two let-
ters she had received from a
serviceman in Iraq and anoth-
er in Afghanistan. Both
expressed their heartfelt
thanks and told how the boxes
were shared with others in
their units and when they
arrive it is like celebrating
Christmas in September. This
program means a lot to our
own residents since many
have sons and daughters or
grandchildren serving in this
war.
Sept. 15 was our coed cof-
fee for the residents. Our
hosts were Patty and Dickie
Blount, who served coffee
and various desserts provided
from the Military Soup and
Sandwich program. Our
emcee was Marilyn
Christensen, who was giving
Louise Smith a break.
George Susco told the resi-
dents that the watering
restrictions according to the
city are still at one day a
week. If you have plants, you
can water them but the lawns
are getting plenty of soaking
with the showers we have
been having. He told the resi-
dents that next month he plans
to have a questionnaire to find
out what is most important to
the living and recreational
provisions of the park.
We are all happy to have
Mary Ellen and Bud Bryant
back from their five-plus
months vacation in New York
State. She then asked Carol
Noel for a Sunshine report.
We are happy to see Bonnie
Allen back following her knee
surgery. There is also a sym-
pathy sheet to sign for
Cleadus Rose and Jeanette
Oglesby, their brother Cecil
Rose passed away. Marge
Perry stood up and wanted to
tell the residents that ajlot of
people wondered about Floyd
Testa. He is 90 years old and
lives with son and daughter-
in-law who told Marge he is
doing very well and loves

lived in the park for years.
Joan Peterson told the
group that we will have a
speaker from Lakeview
Memorial Gardens next week.
Also on Monday, November
17 we will have the Blood
Mobile parked at our facility.
She is checking with a med-
ical provider regarding the
vaccine that can be given at
our clubhouse.
Announcements John
Jacobson told the group that
the Mustangs will be going to
the Lakeside Restaurant in
Sebring on Sept. 16. Carol
Noel announced the Ladies
Day Out will be Sept. 16 at
Jan's Country Kitchen in
Lake Placid. Marilyn then
read the list of people cele-
brating the birthdays Sept.
15-22 and asked Virginia
Tharp to accompany us on the
piano. We had three persons
present who will have a birth-
day. They were Joy Dean,
Ruby Pfeiffer and Rosie
Witten. She also read the
names of residents celebrat-
ing their anniversaries, how-
ever no one was present.
Marilyn told a cute little joke
which everyone enjoyed and
all gave her a round of
applause for volunteering to
be the emcee today.
Sept. 16 Ladies Coffee we
had 11 ladies present. Carol
Noel made the coffee and
Fran Buero was the emcee.
Carol read the names of per-
sons who were in the hospital
and told them that Cleadus
Rose and Jeanette Oglesby's
brother passed away. She had
sign-up sheets for all to sign
on the table to let them know
they are in our thoughts and
prayers. The Ladies Day Out
luncheon was this very after-
noon. We had 24 attend and
all enjoyed having lunch
together. Arrangements were
made by Peggy Sue Teague.
The Mustangs enjoyed their
luncheon at the Lakeside
Restaurant in Sebring. John
Jacobson was in charge of the
arrangements.
Resident News: Rita and
Andy Anderson returned from
attending a reunion for the
U.S.S. Benner DD 807, which
was held in Savannah, Ga.
One hundred and twenty-five
attended the reunion, which
began on Wednesday and
ended on Sunday.
Bud and Mary Ellen Bryant
have returned from Cape
Vincent, N.Y. They enjoyed
visiting with family and
friends and attended a family
reunion at Mary Ellen's
brother's home with more
than 40 in attendance. They
also attended the wedding of
nephew Jimmy and Kelly
Neuman in Rochester, N.Y.
They also enjoyed playing the
slots at the Akwesaski
Mohawk Casino and viewing
the Eisenhower Locks. It was
very relaxing watching the
St. Lawrence River flow by
and watching the ships and
yachts on the river but they
knew it was time to return to
Florida when they woke up to
40 degree weather one morn-
ing.

Marcel Miranda, Lester Kesselring and Baldy Miranda are busy preparing for the annual
Apple Festival at the Palms of Sebring, which gets under way Oct. 2. Kesselring, coordi-
nator of the annual festival, is busy making floral and wreath arrangements, which will be
available.


The Palms plans annual


Apple Festival Oct. 2-4


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Palms of Sebring
Retirement Community is proud to announce
its 12th annual Apple Festival, set for
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Oct. 2-4. The
hours. are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, 8 a.m. to
6 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday
and the public is cordially invited to come
and shop and enjoy what has become one of
Sebring's greatest craft and baked goods
events.
Due to renovations at the Palms, of
Sebring, this year's event will be inside
Blough Hall at Church of the Brethren,
which is across the street on the corner of
Oak Avenue and South Pine Street. The
entrance for this event is on Oak Avenue.
The traditional theme is'-apples, apples,
apples. There will be a tremendous assort-
ment of gift ideas, household items in-addi-
tion to beautiful holiday decorations.
But that's just part of the great gifts, home
d6cor and specialty items on sale at this
year's gala Apple Festival. The most popular
item of all is still the fresh-baked apple
dumplings, in addition to a wide assortment
of apple jelly, apple butter, apple 'cakes,
apple pies, apple cookies, and much, much
more.
The Apple Festival is the major fundrais-
ing event sponsored by the Activities
Department each year at the Palms. All pro-'
ceeds go to purchase special items to help


enhance the quality of life of residents who
live at the Palms. In year's past, purchases
have included an aviary, a big-screen televi-
sion, a player-piano, as well as special trips.
The money raised is also used to pay for spe-
cial entertainment and programs brought into
the Palms throughout the year.
"The Apple Festival is a labor of love,"
said Nancy Hawk, director of Activities and
Volunteer Services, "because it involves the
residents who bake some items to sell, while
others make gifts to sell or volunteer to help
during the festival. It's their big event and
they know nice things will happen with the
proceeds."
The Apple Festival is a major undertaking,
and has become well-known throughout
Highlands County. It was an event started by
the former activities director, Lester
Kesselring, who retired after 30 years of
service to the Palms. He will be on hand to
help again this year and will be creating a
marvelous array of Christmas and fall
wreaths as well as floral arrangements to
sell.
Parking is available in the parking lot
across from the Palms on Oak Avenue as
well as a grass lot on Oak Avenue across
from Church of the Brethren. Additional
parking is available across from the main
entrance of the Palms, 725 S. Pine St.
For more information, call the Palms of
Sebring, 385-0161.

The Scope of Oriental Medicine
Oriental medicine includes acupuncture, Chinese herbology, dietary
therapy, exercise and bodywork based on traditional Oriental medicine
principles.
This system of health care is used extensively by one-quarter of the
worlds population residing in Asia, and is rapidly growing in popularity
in the West.
Oriental medicine is based on an energetic model rather than the bio-
chemical model of Western medicine.
Acupuncture
Acupuncture is the 5000 year old Chinese system of natural
healing. Fine sterile needles are inserted into specific points of
the body to restore a balanced flow of energy.
,, Through acupuncture, Oi (energy) is allowed to move
,, freely throughout the body. reestablishing balance. This bal-
.. ance helps the body achieve higher levels of health and

Stroke, osteoporosis
screening coming to
Sebring Tuesday
SEBRING Highlands
County residents can be
screened to reduce their risk
of having a stroke. The com-
plete screening package now
includes a new heart rhythm
screening, which checks for
irregular heartbeat, a major
risk factor for stroke.
Life Line Screening will
be at Emmanuel United
Church of Christ on Tuesday.
The site is at 3115 Hope St.
in Sebring. Appointments
will begin at 9 a.m.
For more information
regarding the screenings or to
schedule an appointment, call
1-800-697-9721 or visit the
Web site at www.lifeline-
screening.com. Pre-registra-
tion is required.
A stroke, also known as a
"brain attack," is ranked as
the third leading killer in the
world. Screenings are fast,
painless and affordable. They
help identify potential health
problems such as blocked
arteries and irregular heart
rhythm, abdominal aortic
aneurysms, and hardening of
the arteries in the legs, which
is a strong predictor of heart
disease. A
bone density screening to
assess osteoporosis risk is
also offered and is appropri-
ate for both men and women.
All five screenings take
60-90 minutes to complete.


Airboaters help raise funds

About 30 airboats showed up on Lake Istokpoga last week-
end to participate in a cancer benefit run for Phil Wack (at
left, talking to Charlie White). More than 150 people came
out to take a tour around the lake from an airobat and to
participate in the barbecue afterwards. The benefit was coor-
dinated by Wack's nephew David and Katie Wack, his sister
Pam Williams, and Lonnie Tucker.


For interested residents, fin-
ger-stick blood tests and liver
enzyme screenings are also
available.

Amplified phones
available Thursday
SEBRING On '
Thursday, Hearing Impaired
Persons will be in the confer-
ence room at Nu-Hope of
Highlands County, 6414 U.S.
27 S., from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.,
to distribute amplified tele-


phones to Florida residents
who have a hearing or speech
loss.
Hearing Impaired Persons
is a regional distribution cen-
ter for Florida
Telecommunications Relay
Inc., a non-profit organiza-
tion that distributes special-
ized telephone equipment, at
no cost, to permanent resi-
dents of Florida who have a
hearing or speech loss. For

Don't let PAD slow you down


The
buildup of
plaque on
the artery
walls, is
called ath-
erosclero-
sis, or ; ,.
hardening
Footprints of the
arteries. It
Dr. Olga causes the
Luepshcen arteries to
narrow or
become blocked, which can
reduce or block blood flow.
When atherosclerosis
affects the arteries, of the
heart, it is called coronary
artery disease. CAD can
cause a heart attack. If ather-
osclerosis is in the limbs, it
is called peripheral arterial
disease.
It most commonly affects
blood flow to the legs. If
PAD is present, it also is
likely to be in the coronary
arteries. Smoking, high cho-
lesterol, obesity, diabetes and
high blood pressure are all
PAD risk factors.
Blocked blood flow can
cause pain and numbness. It
also can increase a person's
chance of getting an infec-
tion, and it can make it diffi-
cult for the person's body to
fight the infection. If severe
enough, blocked blood flow
can cause tissue death known
as gangrene. PAD and dia-
betes are the leading cause of
non-traumatic, lower-limb
amputations.
Prevalence
PAD is a disease that
affects millions of Americans
over age 50. PAD affects 8 to
12 million Americans, and
one in every five people over
the age of 70,has the disease.
It is a common, yet serious
disease. Men are more likely
to have symptoms of PAD,
but both men and women can
develop the disease. PAD can
impair physical health and
diminish the ability to walk.
Complications
In the advanced stages of
PAD, blood flow to one or
both legs can be completely
or mostly blocked. This is
known as critical limb
ischemia. A very severe
blockage in the legs and feet
means that the legs do not
receive the oxygen or nutri-
tion needed for cellular or
tissue growth and repair. CLI
may lead to painful leg or
foot sores, and it could even-


tually lead to gangrene. If
this condition is left untreat-
ed, the foot or leg may need
to be amputated.
Warning signs
Fatigue, tiredness,
-eramping-or-pain in-your -
legs, thighs or buttocks that
always occurs when you
walk but that goes away
when you rest. This is called
claudication.
Foot or toe pain while
idle that often disturbs your
sleep.
Skin wounds or ulcers
on your feet or toes that are
slow to heal (or that do not
heal for 8-12 weeks).
Many individuals with
PAD do not experience typi-
cal leg symptoms, such as
cramping, pain, or fatigue, so
those at risk should undergo


screening for PAD.

Diagnosis
Your podiatric physician
can do a simple test to deter-
mine if you have PAD.
The test is called ankle-
brahhial index. It compares
the blood pressure in your
ankles with the blood pres-
sure in your arm. If your ABI
is abnormal, your podiatric
physician may order other
tests to determine the extent
of your PAD.
If you have any of these
symptoms call your podia-
trist, as soon as possible. For
additional questions please
contact Dr. Olga Garcia
Luepschen at the Gentle Foot
Care Center, 2 Ryant Blvd,
Sebring (on US 27). Call
314-9255. A

Heartland captures first district win

SEBRING While there
have been impressive wins
and strong efforts in this new
era of Crusader volleyball, the
sought for first district win
had been delayed.
Perhaps it was
appropriate, then, that Heai
an evening downpour I
delayed the arrival of
Life Academy before Life.
Heartland got that ini-
tial notch in the district
belt Monday night. |
It soon became evi-
dent that this would be the
!moment for the win, as the
Lady Lions of Life were out-
Imatched.
After an early 3-3 tie, three
consecutive aces from Katie
Vickers were part of a six-
point run.
Caitlin Cwalinski and
Kayla Selander also added
service aces to push the lead
to as much as 16-5.

Three Cwalinski kills kept
the lead at ten or above the
rest of the way for the 25-15
win.
It was Carolyn Cwalinski's
turn to do some scoring in the
second set, with four aces
helping open up a 5-0 lead.
land From there it seemed
as if every Life
Academy point was
met with a barrage of
cad. Crusader scores as the
lead grew from 6-1 to
13-3 to 24-6.
A little focus may
have been lost, as
missed serves delayed the
inevitable on the way to the
25-8 win.
"It's not acceptable, but it
is understandable and easy to
get sloppy. in a match like
that," head coach Shannon
Fassler said.
The was obvious in the
third game as, while never
seriously threatened down the
stretch, Heartland left the


door open for Lion points that
made the final result closer
than it should have been.
Up 9-5, the Crusaders saw
Life come to within 9-8
before Selander launched five
service aces as part of a 10-0
run to make it 19-8.
The finishing touches were
put on by a Rebekah Watts
kill and Carolyn Cwalinski
ace for the 25-12 win and
three-set sweep.
"I'm happy for the win, but
we didn't have to do too much
to earn it," Fassler said. "We
missed way too many serves,
looking back, nearly half of
their (Life's) points came on
our missed serves."
The first win is out of the
way, and a lesson was learned
on losing focus.
The team heads on the road
searching to move up the dis-
trict standings with a game
tonight at Life Academy and a
matchup Thursday 'at
Vanguard in Lake Wales.

Streaks edge Dragons

in five-game

Extravaganza


By DAN HOEHNE
edtael ihowini @newwssun.com
SEBRING Calling this, a
ipiugh stretch of the Lady
tue Streak schedule might
an understatement.
But it certainly is one that
should have them battle tested
in the latter part of the season,
as Tuesday's epic, five-set
win over county rival Lake.
Placid capped off a busy week
and a half.
"This was our sixth game
in the last four days," Sebring
head coach Venessa
Sinness said. "I'm so Seb
proud of how they
hung in there."
Especially after the
Lady Dragons .opened Lake
the night by delivering
what could have been a
knockout punch with a
25-12 first-set win.
"We won last night, but
didn't play real well," Lake
Placid head coach Marilyn
Jones said of Monday's sweep
at Fort Meade. "But the girls
were up for this one."
A sentiment which was evi-
dent and seconded by
Sinness.
"With Lake Placid, we
know we're always going to
get their best," she said.
The Dragons came out on
fire in the second set as well,
running out to an 8-3 lead.
But having been through a


r



F


gauntlet of a schedule recent-
ly, the Streaks showed their
mental toughness in coming
back.
Kills from Molly Blackman
brought it to 9-8 before Lake
Placid stretched it out again
with a Kaneisha Hamilton
smash.
But the comeback contin-
ued with Hannah Shoop
throwing down some thunder,
to, first, even things at 14-14,
and then to cap a run that saw
Sebring up 21-14.
The Dragons did a
ing little fighting back of
their own, closing to
within 24-18, but the
Streaks struck next for
lacid the 25-18 win.
Sebring took -the
wave of momentum
and ran with it in the
third set, getting the lead out.
to 4-1 and 6-3 early on.
Lake Placid, though, was-
n't about to let this rivalry go
to their neighbors to the north
so easily.
Ali Baker scored on a block
to put the Dragons back out in
front and hold the lead until a
Sebring run pushed it back in
their favor, 16-12.
Back and forth it went,
with Sebring extending the
lead and Lake Placid reeling
it back in.

Despite the fantastic effort by Julie Shrewsbury and the Lady Dragons, Molly Blackman and
Sebring recovered from an early route to take the cross-county match-up in a five-game
thriller.


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

With Tuna

on board,

Dolphins

let loose

Now what did I tell
you about who ended up
. with the biggest upgrade
from the whole Brett
Favre soap opera?
Granted, Chad
Pennington wasn't the
major player in the
Dolphins astonishing win
at New England on
Sunday but he had an
extremely efficient, mis-
take-free game.
Which, when you break
it all down, is what
allowed for not only
Miami upsetting the
Patriots, but demolishing
them.
Only three incomplete
passes on the day, out of
20 thrown, for a nice total
of 226 yards.
Having to respect the
passing game that con-
necting at such a clip, it
opened up the running
game.
Not only opened it up,
but allowed it to get a lit-
tle creative, a little inven-
tive, a little goofy.
Ronnie Brown was the
big man of the day, gain-
ing 113 yards on 17 car-
ries and rushing for four
touchdowns.
One of those came on a
direct-snap play to him
that left the New England
defense flatfooted.
And if that left them
immobile, the direct-snap
play to Brown 'that result-
ed in a 19-yard touch-
down pass by him had to
have their heads spinning.
And just like that, a
week after Favre's Jets
couldn't get past the Tom
Brady-less Pats, the
Pennington Dolphins
destroyed them.
It leads one question
whether the Jets, even
with Favre are really at
all improved or if the

Plaza

wrestles up

support for

AP football

By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Over 200
wrestling fans were treated to
five regular matches and a cham-
pionship bout in a free show
Saturday afternoon in Avon Park.
Hosted by Plaza Chevrolet,
the event was billed as a fund
raiser for the Avon Park High
School Football team, who
received the proceeds from con-
cessions.
"I really care about the com-
munity, and having free events
like this are what this communi-
ty is all about," said Tony Rose,
Plaza Chevrolet general manag-
er.
"We were glad to provide an
opportunity for the football team
to raise money for equipment
and such, especially after they
lost some equipment in a recent
break-in."


CCW wrestling star, The Warlord, greets kids after winning the main event.


Match contestants included
local stars from Costal
Championship Wrestling such as
the 6-foot, 10-inch Isis, possibly
the tallest woman in Florida
wrestling, the Warlord and the
Tokyo Monster "Kahagas" who
reportedly lives in the Sebring
area.
The main event featured a


triple tag team event featuring
Isis, Warlord, and Kahagas who
defeated crowd favorites Bruno
Sassi, Cash Money Alex G., and
Jessica Haze.
To continue their community
support, Plaza Chevrolet will
host an "Elvis" show on
Saturday, October 25.

LOOKING BACK

5 YEARS AGO
September 19, 2003: Florida's Alligator Harvest turned up a big catch in the Highlands County Canal as
JaneTillman-Hill 'tagged' herself a 13-foot, 2-inch gator. With friend, and professional guide, Chris Rivers,
Tillman-Hill nearly sank the boat as they hauled the 500-600 pound monster on board."We had no idea how
big he really was until we got him into the boat,"Tillman-Hill said.
10 YEARS AGO
September 25, 1998: With Hurricane Georges taking aim at the state of Florida, all post-school activities
were postponed in Highlands County. Football practices and games scheduled for the weekend, as well as the
Highlands County Amateur Golf Championship were forced to be rescheduled.

Chad lets 'Phins get funky


Continued from 1D
really knows how to coach
with a quarterback like him.
After New England's win
over the Jets, with Matt
Cassel taking over for Brady,
the thought must have been,
'well, they're the Patriots,
and 'while they may not be as
good without Tommy-boy,
they're such a balanced team,
that they'll be all right.'
After what Miami did to
them this week, however, a
whole lot of questions must
be popping up throughout the
northeast.
It also makes me wonder,
though, about last year's
Dolphin team.
What it seems they did this
week was, without too much


pressure on them at New
England, not expected to win
- they let loose, thought out-
side the box and tried some
new things.
The added wrinkles obvi-
ously paid off and lead to the
shocker, and the Bill
Parcells/Tony Sparano
regime is off to an exciting'
and entertaining start.
And it's a good thing.
Because, don't you think'
that the letting loose, trying
new things mindset might
have been a good approach to
take last year?
Going through a nearly
winless season, I suppose
there was the pressure of
making sure to get that one
win.


But they obviously had a
hard enough time doing it the
conventional way, so why not
get a little funky with it?
Then again, I suppose per-
sonnel plays a role in that.
Sure, they had Ronnie
Brown last year, and Ricky
Williams (16-98) for that
matter.
But they didn't have a
quarterback throwing at an
85-percent rate with no inter-
ceptions.
Finally, a Chad that
reflects well on Florida.

Above: Anna West came up big for Sebring, earning a
point for the Streaks on this smash over the net. Right:
Ali Baker proved a force for Lake Placid Tuesday, keep-
ing the Lady Dragons ever so close to knocking off their
county rival Sebring. Below: The Lady Streaks meet cen-
ter-court to celebrate another point in Tuesday's win at
Lake Placid.


Dragons push, but Streaks prevail


Continued from 1C
But the Streaks runs were
taking their toll on the score-
board and they held on in the
trading of points for a 25-22
win putting them one game
from getting the match over
with.
It wouldn't have been an
epic battle, however, if it
ended that quickly of
course a fifth game would
have to be forced.
And forced it was as,
again, the Lady Dragons
fired out of the chute build-
ing an early lead and never
relinquishing it.
The points were coming
from all directions with a
Tiffany Bisbey kill and tip, a
Hamilton kill and Baker
Block, a Sierra Weaver kill
and block and another
Bisbey tip.
When Sebring tried to
make a push, Baker turned
into a one-woman point
machine, scoring three
straight on a block, a kill and
a tip to hold the lead that
would turn into the 25-21
win to force the tie-breaking
fifth set.
Things looked like they
might go the Dragons way
when, after Sebring broke
through for the first point of
the rubber match, Shoop's
thunder blast was blocked
for a point by Weaver.
Julie Shrewsbury fol-
lowed with a service ace and
Weaver scored again on a
tip.
But Shoop came back to
score on a tip of her own,
Anna West slammed one
down and Blackman
smashed consecutive scores
for the 15-6 Sebring win.
"Volleyball is like life,"
Ricki Albritton said after-
ward. "To succeed in both,
you have to enjoy it, and it's
nights like this that we real-
ly enjoy it and it shows in
our play."
It must have taken a jolt to
the enjoyment, having to
bounce back from the first-
set clobbering, however.
"That sort of game, you
just have to forget about it
and that's what I told them,"
Sinness said. "That can be
tough, it takes a lot of men-
tal toughness to be able to
forget about it and continue
to play well."
But their recent schedule
has gone a long way to forti-
fy that mental toughness.
Beginning with a tough
test against district front-
runner, DeSoto, Sept. 9,
Sebring traveled to Braden
River, another district
stronghold, before matches
at home against Booker and
on the road at Hardee.
The team went two-and-
two in those matches, and
then headed to the Bartow
tournament over this past
weekend, placing second

Brittanie Augustine, #2, and Molly Blackman go skyward
in an attempt to block this kill attempt by Brahman
Rebecca Bryan in Monday's loss to Okeechobee.


among 12 teams and only
losing close matches with
Class 6A Osceola in the
championship.
That tiring run continued
Monday with a visit from the
Lady Brahmans down Hwy.
98.
"We had a long weekend,
playing four ,matches in the
tournament," Sinness said.
"But that's not an excuse,
and the girls said that too."
And any ill-effects
weren't apparent, initially,
as the Lady Streaks kept the
opening match close -against
high-octane Okeechobee and
their high-flying hit
machine, Monica Koger.
Down 24-18, Sebring
stepped it up defensively,
with a Blackman and Shoop
block closing the margin to
24.21 before the Brahmans
closed it out with the next
point.
The second match was
another close contest most
of the way through, with the
Streaks answering back for
each Okeechobee point.
An Anna West tip knotted
it at 1-1, a misdirection tap
from Brittanie Augustine
made it 3-4 and two
Blackman kills tied it at 7-7.
The ladies in blue scored
the next two for a 9-7 lead,
but a four-point run put the
purple pixies back in the
lead.
From there, Sebring
would answer the 'Chobee
runs and close the gap, time
and again, but with the score
17-19, another Brahman run
pushed it to 17-24.


'Volleyball is

like life. To

succeed in both,

you have to enjoy

it.'

RICKI ALBRITTON
Sebring libero

A Karely Freeland kill
halted the point surge, but
only delayed the inevitable
in the 25-18 win for the vis-
itors.
And while Sebring
stepped it up early in the
third set, overcoming an
early deficit to take the lead,
helped by an Abigail Bone
kill, the fatigue appeared to
set in.
,. "The confidence cancarry
you so far, but then it can be
a domino effect when it goes
the other way," Sinness said.
"We strive to be a team that
doesn't let the other team go
on a run of more than a point
or two. But they're a great
team that we really don't
match up well against and
we just couldn't answer at
the end."
That became clear as an 8-
5 lead suddenly was a 13-8
deficit, then 16-9 and 21-11
before the final of 25-13 was
posted.
The Streaks return home
Thursday for another county
battle, hosting Avon Park,
while Lake Placid opens
their district schedule with a
visit from Frostproof on
Thursday as well.

> Kyle Busch's championship as-
pirations are in ruins. Even when
the Red Sox lost three straight to
the Yankees in the 2004 play-
offs, no one actually conceded,
which a frustrated Busch did af-
ter his engine went sour in the
Camping World 400.
o Greg Biffle, winner of the first
two Chase races, has a new iden-
tity. He is the anti-Busch.
. Biffle didn't win a single regular-
season race, lending credence to
the notion that NASCAR has the
world's longest and most irrele-
vant exhibition schedule in
sports.
. It's hard to see how perform-
ance-enhancing drugs would
make much difference for a race
driver. Where it might be an issue
is with pit crews.
. It's OK to be win-
less in the regular
season, especially
if you win the first
two races of the
Chase. But the
clock is ticking on
Jeff Gordon, Tony .-
Stewart and Matt
Kenseth. STEWART
. Stewart has nev-
er had a winless
season. Gordon hasn't had one
since he was a rookie in 1993.
Kenseth was winless in 2001.
P Jack Roush couldn't be happier.
His Ford drivers finished first and
third in New Hampshire, then fol-
lowed it up with a 1-2-3 finish at
Dover.
How does Carl Edwards win the
championship? Keep swishing
treys. He's finished third in both
races. And wait for teammate Bif-
fle to clank one.
> The smart money's still on Jim-
mie Johnson and tied with Biffle,
10 points behind Edwards.. Two
previous championships con-
secutively, no less carry a lot
of sway.
Busch may have some issues
with his team. He reportedly
donned street clothes and bolted
while his team was trying to get
his engine repaired. There wasn't
much practical significance, but it
looked bad.

and Carl Edwards, giving Biffle a
1.000 average after two races of


the final 45 laps of the season's
latter Dover visit, the Roush trio
turned the concrete mile into a
playground, where their cars
seemed to cavort merrily, not
merely race. Edwards held the
lead after the final caution flag
but eventually paid the price for
changing two tires while his
teammates were changing all
four. He fought the good fight un-
til lap 377, when Kenseth
slipped past, and then Kenseth
held off Biffle until lap 392, and
once cleared of the three-way
struggle that could best have
been termed a dogfight, Biffle
settled into his second victory of

NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULE DEVELOPMENT
OF THE SCHOOL BOARD OF HIGHLANDS
COUNTY, FLORIDA TO CONSIDER A NEW
SCHOOL DISTRICT RULE 5.321 AND NOTICE
OF POTENTIAL PUBLIC HEARING
NOTICE is hereby given that the School Board
of Highlands County is developing an amend-
ment to School Board Rule 5.321, Bullying
and Harassment. The Board will discuss/ap-
prove future plans to amend the purchasing
manual at a regular meeting of the Board on
Tuesday, October 7, 2008, at 9:00 a.m. in the
Board Meeting Room, George Douglass Ad-
ministration Building, 426 School Street,
Sebring, Florida. If requested by an affected
person in writing within 14 days of the date of
this notice, a rule development workshop will
be noticed in a local newspaper. The request
must be submitted to Wally Cox, Superintend-
ent, 426 School Street, Sebring, FL 33870.
The purpose and effect of the proposed
amendment is to create a new policy for bully-
ing and harassment pursuant to recent legis-
lative guidelines. A summary of the proposed
rule or amendment is as follows: It is the poli-
cy of the Highlands County School District
that all of its students and school employees
have an educational setting that is safe, se-
cure and free from harassment and bullying of
any kind. The District will not tolerate bullying
and harassment of any type. Conduct that
constitutes bullying and harassment is prohib-
ited. Bullying means systematically and
chronically inflicting physical hurt or psycho-
logical distress on one or more students or
employees. It is further defined as unwanted
and repeated written, verbal, or physical be-
havior, including any threatening, insulting, or
dehumanizing gesture, by a student or adult,
that is severe or pervasive enough to create
an intimidating, hostile, or offensive educa-
tional environment; cause discomfort or hu-
miliation; or unreasonably interfere with the
Individual's school performance or participa-
tion; and may involve but is not limited to
teasing, social exclusion, threat, intimidation,
stalking, physical violence, theft, sexual, reli-
gious or racial harassment, public humiliation,
or destruction of property. Harassment means
any threatening, insulting or dehumanizing


gesture, use of data or computer software, or
written, verbal or physical conduct directed
against a student or school employee that pla-
ces a student or school employee in reasona-
ble fear of harm to his/her person or damage
to his/her property; has the effect of substan-
tially interfering with a student's educational
performance, opportunities, or benefits; or
has the effect of substantially disrupting the
orderly operation of a school. The specific le-
gal authority includes Sections 1001.41 and
1001.42, Florida Statutes. The School District
believes that the proposed rule or amendment
will have no effect on small business. The
School District believes that the proposed rule
or amendment will not result in substantial in-
crease in costs or prices paid by consumers,
individual industries or state or local govern-
ment agencies, and will not result in signifi-
cant adverse effects on competition, employ-
ment, investment, productivity, innovation or
International trade and/or alternative ap-
proaches to the regulatory objective either do
not exist and/or are precluded by law. The
cost to the School District of promulgating the
proposed rule or amendment is estimated to
be $200. The estimated annual cost of imple-


1050 Legals
meeting and enforcing the proposed rule or
amendment is $0. The text of the proposed
rule or amendment can be obtained at the Su-
perintendent's office, George Douglass Ad-
ministration Building (Attn. Connie Scobey),
426 School Street, Sebring, Florida between
the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday
through Friday.
