SEBRING The incentives for
preparing students for Florida's
Comprehensive Assessment Test not
only include being rated an 'A' or 'B'
school, but personnel also get to line
their pockets with a monetary reward.

Heartland

big plans

By KEVIN J. SHUTT

SEBRING Drum roll,
please.
By the end of Thursday
night, Heartland Idol will
name its two newest champi-
ons in the junior and teen
division and will close the
door on qualifying for adults.
Competition thus far has
been stiff, making Heartland
Idol one of the best values
around.
As cooler nights prevail,

chairs to the Circle in
Downtown Sebring at 6 p.m.
Thursday.
Having spent the past sev-
eral weeks competing and
receiving feedback from
judges, the entertainment's
quality continues to exceed
expectations.
Under the direction of
Heartland Idol founder and
President Diana Walker, the
show has gone "green" to
promote "sustainable" living.
Walker has a captive audi-
ence of about 300 people
every week, and it's with
them that she's been sharing
ideas about recycling and
conservation.
From door prizes to
Thursday's "make your own
cleaning supplies" recipes,
Walker has been using her
stage to help Highlands
County go green.
Walker wanted to put the
word out that old electronics
don't belong in the trash.
Instead, these items can be
brought to the Idol show Oct.
23.
"We are asking viewers
and contestants to bring in
their old unused cell phones
and chargers," she said.
After being refurbished,
the phonesare donated to a
domestic abuse prevention
program.
Collections points will also
accept used plastic bags and
printer ink cartridges.
Going from green to pink,

Cancer Awareness month by

ticket for a free mammogram.
Raffle tickets will be sold

when a winner will be drawn.
Proceeds will benefit

gories, vocals, stage presence

LAKE PLACID School-
aged boys and girls may soon
have a safe place to learn and
grow in Lake Placid, at least
if Kiwanis Club have any-
thing to do with it.
But only if they can find a
space.
Spearheaded by the leader-
ship of Willis Chandler,
Sharion Hudson, Della Casey
and Arlene Tuck, the group
hopes to get a new Boys and
Girls Club up and running
somewhere in the downtown -
area.
The new club will offer
services such as after-school
help with homework and
organized sports activities.
"Homework comes first,"
said Hudson, who also sits as
treasurer on the Kiwanis
board of directors.
"This is a great opportuni-
ty, and the Highlands County
organizer Wally Randall has
been a great help so far. We
hope we can get this up and
going within the next six
months," Hudson said.
The new group has the
local support and funding,
they just need to find space to
get everything rolling.
"We are looking for some
land, preferably in the down-
town area so the kids can
walk to it. We think we -can

Zenon Awards show a magical night


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING The best part of the
23rd annual Zenon Award production,
held Saturday night at the Highlands
Little Theater, is that it will be held
again this weekend with performances
at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and a
matinee at 2:30 p.m. Sunday.
From quiet ballads to fully choreo-
graphed and costumed production num-
bers, the show provides a spectrum of
Broadway shows some time honored,
others brand new. From classic plays
like "Gypsy," "Sweet Charity" and "A
Chorus Line," to newer blockbusters
like "The Lion King," "Sunset
Boulevard" and "Rent," to the work of
master composer and lyricist Stephen
Sondheim, to whacko comedy from
"Hairspray," "Legally Blonde" and
"The Wedding Singer," the evening
builds, ebbs and flows with excitement,
emotion and dance.
The voices, as always, move the heart
and get the feet tapping, while the live-
ly choreography catches and keeps
one's attention.
Interspersed with the music Saturday
(but not this weekend) were the presen-
tation of 19 awards.

How to start up a


neighborhood watch


By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
christophertuffley@newssunxom
A faltering economy can
lead to a rise in burglaries,
car thefts or other criminal
acts of opportunity. Instead
of living scared, the best
response is to come together
and take an active approach.
All three municipalities and
the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office have offi-
cers especially trained and
available to help neighbors
join forces and work togeth-
er.
Kevin Megno, a former
D.A.R.E. officer and now on
patrol in Avon Park, said the
most important thing a com-
munity can do is get to know
one another.
By being familiar with the
people who belong in the
area and when they are
normally home- means
those people who do not
belong are more easily seen.
This is one reason meet-
ing regularly with neighbors
is a useful thing to do.
In addition, gathering
together is an excellent way
to keep everyone informed
of what is going on locally,
and a morale booster in dif-
ficult neighborhoods where
a long-term commitment is
needed in the clean-up
effort.
Here are some commonly
asked questions and their
answers, straight advice and
contact numbers.

How do we start a
Neighborhood Watch
group?
Arrange for a meeting
place. It may be a private
home, a supportive business,
or public building. Call the
law enforcement agency
with authority in your neigh-
borhood. Ask if an officer
can be available for a meet-
ing.
When a time and date are
agreed to, get the word out.
Knock on doors, post fliers
and not just on private
doors, ask stores and busi-
nesses to display them too
contact the News-Sun to
have a news brief printed,
call a radio station. Start


The Issues...
The Answers
early and follow through.
Question: What if no one
shows up?
Don't despair. Some
neighborhoods are ripe for
community action and peo-
ple turn out. In other areas
neighbors are slow to see the
need.
But word of mouth
spreads, if slowly at times.
Persistence is one key; a
good meeting is another.

A journey out of the dark,


accomp

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING This is one
man's story, his testimony
really, told in the middle of
his life.
Robert Hall is 54 years
old, an addict in recovery,
getting over a case-of-beer-a-
day habit, mixed at different
times of his life with mari-
juana, cocaine and pills of
many kinds.
His eyes are tired. His
hands are in constant motion.
There are the tell-tale scars,
thin white tracks, of old sui-
cide attempts on his neck and
wrists.
His speech is rushed and
he apologizes for a shaky
memory dates elude him
often but he fights and
succeeds in keeping his
thoughts straight, his story
tumbling out with force.
He was born in
Jamestown, N.Y., a city in
the southwest corner of the
state. His parents were well-
off. "We wanted for nothing
as kids," he said.
A successful football play-
er in high school, he was
recruited by three colleges.
He seemed full of promise.
But his troubles began
early. He dropped out of col-
lege to follow a girlfriend to
California. He did get a job
in a bank which he kept for
10 years, earning regular
promotions. But with the
money of success came the
addictions. He was soon
drinking heavily and living
life as if it was episode of
"Miami Vice," down to wear-
ing a beard of three day-old
stubble and silk jackets over
T-shirts.
On his 10th anniversary
with the bank he quit, cashed
in all his pension equity and
stock, and walked away with
$36,000. He paid his bills, he
says, then blew the remain-t
ing $25,000 in 90 days, free-
basing $300 of cocaine every
one of those days.
SIt was the start of the
merry-go-round. He'd move
to a new place, meet a new
girl, get a new job, and then
lose both with his drinking.
He moved often, from New
York to California to
Pennsylvania to back with
his parents, back to
Pennsylvania to Florida, back
to his parents. He was rarely
anywhere for very long,
although there were periods
of quiet where he was able to
stop drinking for two or three
years at a time.
But it always started again.
The in-patient rehab pro-
grams his parents found for
him didn't work. He hated
AA.
With each turn of the
merry-go-round, he spun a

Robert Hall credits the Jail Assisted Substance Abuse pro-
gram with turning his life around. Once a case of beer
drinker with no thought of others, his addictions caused him
to hurt and frighten his friends and family. Now, he says, he
keeps focused on doing the next right thing, including show-
ing gratitude to those who have helped him recover, and love
to his parents who stuck with him. He understands now, he
said, what he didn't get then, and can love now without con-
trolling.

At one time he lived in his
car. .
Another time, having lo0t
his car, he lived in the woods
along U.S. 27.
It was only a matter of
time before he and the police
'would collide.
He was drunk each time,
twice in his car and drinking
in public places once
alongside Lake June, the
other in the Lake Placid
Publix parking lot. These
were the times he attacked
himself with a knife, once
slicing his neck, another his
wrists. He was confined
under the Baker Act and in
the Publix incident lost his
car when it was towed and he
couldn't afford to retrieve it.
Yet he still hadn't hit bot-
tom.
That occurred in the spring
of 2007, when he'd been
released after the most recent
Baker Act and hitched a ride

Because the woman had a

the police took the matter

Big Canoe

Challenge

getting

bigger

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID -
With Highlands County
YMCA as co-sponsor, the
Ridge Trails
Association's Big Canoe
Challenge will be bigger,
better and more fun this
year.
"It's the Florida event
for October," Mary Jane
O'Brien said, explaining
the second annual team-
building canoe time trial
is receiving regional
exposure.
Pre-registration already
exceeds last year's total
participation. So far, 13
teams are signed, and the
Challenge is still 17 dqys
away.
Only 10 competed fast
year.
The Big Canoe
Challenge is the RTA's
signature fundraiser,
bringing in canoe spon-
sors at $500 per vessel
and sign sponsors at $|00
each.
The venue is Lake June
Park in Lake Placid.
The canoes, big enough
to seat 14 paddlers, and
all necessary equipment
and instruction are pro-
vided by Wild Creek
Adventures of Lake
Wales, which will also
handle timing.
O'Brien said a golf-
type leader board will
allow subsequent teams
determine what times
they need to beat.
She said last year's
defending champion,
Barrett Diesel, is looking
for a new team to sponsor.
"I'm looking for fire-
fighters, EMS," O'Brien
l'.v roving out ex"-

Canoers don't neces-
sarily have to be
employed by or otherwise
associated with the spon-
sor.

fall decorations and even
Christmas items are every-
where in the stores. Tom the
turkey is hiding from
Thanksgiving Day and Santa
is getting the sled ready and
checking out his reindeer.
We say it every year ...
we're gonna do the holidays
different this year. I say it
myself every year, but do I
do it different? No. What
about celebrating the holiday
after the holiday, when all
the sales begin? Talk about
saving money.
Traveling will be out of
the question for.some due to
the gas crunch. Thank heav-
en for our phones and cell
phones so we can at least
call our relatives. Maybe
some tables will be a little
more bare as well. Maybe it
will help us remember what
this season is all about any-
way?
What can we give this
year that requires little or no
money? Not much you would
think.
Here are some things that
came to mind:
Attention Pay atten-
tion to someone who needs
to be heard.
Be Be there for
someone who's lonely.
Care Show you care
to the forgotten ones.
Dare Dare to get out
of your comfort zone for
someone else.
Encourage Encourage
someone who's struggling to
keep them going.
- Faith Stir someone's
up to believe big, because
our God is big.
Ideas Got any bright
Ideas to pass on?
Joy Spread joy wher-
ever you go.
Kindness It only
takes a minute to show this
trait and makes you feel
good too.
Love Unconditional
love is hard to come by these
days.
Nice Be nice to the
check-out lady or waitress;
they've earned it.
Open-mindedness -
Never say it can't be done -
stay open to good, new
things.
Patience Are you
really in that much of a
hurry?
Quiet Spend some
quiet time with God.
Rest Take a busy per-
son to a peaceful place so
he/she can rest and relax.
Satisfy Satisfy some-
one other than yourself.
Trust Give it to some-
one who may not have
deserved it in the past, yet is
trying to do better now (of
course, use discretion in
this).
Understanding When
your kid tries to explain why
he/she broke the vase, try a
little understanding, you
were a kid once too.
Victory Is there
someone trying to get victory
over something? Help them.
Welcome Make
someone feel welcomed in
your world.
E(X)cellence Give
excellence to your boss this
month.
You Spread yourself
around outside of your com-
fort zone.
Zeal Show some at


your place of worship next
Sunday.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL

No matter who you support, you have to register

to vote if you want to make a difference


f ever there was an elec-
tion that cried out for
citizen participation,
the general election of
2008 is it.
So often in the past, when push came
to the shove of an election, a loud chorus
arose decrying the lack of difference
between the two major party presidential
candidates.
On reflection, we think it wasn't so
much the lack of difference between peo-
ple that was at the heart of the jeer, but
the sameness of the future.
Ever since the close of World War II
our nation has been riding the crest of a
wave our resources were rich enough
and our people energized enough to gen-
erate the greatest expansion of wealth,
the greatest variety of innovations, and
the greatest selection of opportunities in
the history of nation states.
The differences between proposed pol-
icy choices were incremental rather than
radical variations on a theme and
the end results usually involved matters
of distribution rather than real change,
because the American government and
the nation's sustaining infrastructure
were already so large and so set in place
that sweeping change wasn't really pos-
sible for anyone.
Until, that is, the world changed

Research on Grimming
should be done
Editor:
I have watched the political land-
scape very closely this year, especial-
ly that of the sheriff's race. From let-
ters to the editors to attending com-
munity affairs and talking with those
who are also interested in electing the
better of the two sheriff's candidates;
I have a concern for candidate Ron
Grimming.
First of all, he has lived in our
county only a couple of years and
when he was at the helm of the
Florida Highway Patrol, lasted only
four years, 1993-1997. Referred to as
the first outsider when hired for this
job, Ron Grimming had the opportu-
nity to respond to a reporter with the
St. Pete Times after leaving office in
regards to the criticism of his leader-
ship. This researcher /reporter men-
tioned Grimming's "innovative
attempts to modernize the FHP and
splintering its focus, his weakening
alien performance and his alienating
of command staff." Researching lead-
ership in the FHP, the writer gave Mr.
Grimming three opportunities to
respond, but he preferred not to
defend his record just mentioned plus
bringing in helicopters, community
policing squadrons, a car theft hot-
line, taking troopers off the road and
putting them in special units, anger-
ing Florida sheriffs.
Will he bring this kind of unpro-
ductive leadership to the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office? Will he
bring people who have ill intentions
towards our law enforcement and our
local government? If so, could it pos-

around the politicians.
In the '60s it wasn't the politics that
were new. What rocked the country was
the Civil Rights Movement and the
entrance into the work place of individu-
als who had been systematically exclud-
ed before.
A few years later women acquired a
voice and joined men in seeking individ-
ual fulfillment.
The shift in demographics and citizen
focus caused politicians to react and
attempt to catch up to the new world the
voters, not they, had created.
Now, seemingly suddenly, the future is
no longer the same again, although filled
with different challenges.
We face not only fewer resources, but
loss of control over them because we
must reach beyond our own borders to
acquire what we need, oil being the
obvious example.
We face other nations anxious to exert
their own power, eager to compete with
us head to head, with ideas of their own
as to what is good for the world. We have
less leverage on the world stage than -a
generation ago, and fewer, more difficult
choices to make here at home.
For the first time since the Great
Depression, families cannot count on
improving their financial status simply
by working harder. In fact, it is likely we
will have to learn how to live with less.
As strongly as we can say it, however,


this is not a disaster, It may. on the other
side, turn out to be the best thing to ever
happen to us.
Too much time on the top of the heap
can lead to arrogance, shortsightedness,
and laziness.
Change beckons, and while establish-
ing a new point of view and new way of
doing things can be scary, frustrating and
even at times unfair while it is going on,
what follows will be better.
Provided we speak up and herd the
politicians along. They need oar leader-
ship more than we need theirs.
Because we will have to adjust so
much of our thinking in the near future,
this election is a crucial one.
John McCain and Barack Obana have
different world views, different priori-
ties, and different ways of going about
their business.
We don't care who you support -
both men love our country and want to
do well but register and vote. The
turnout is almost more important than
who wins. Every elected official has to
come out of this election knowing we
care, that he and she is being watched
and will be expected to face issues head
on and with courage.
The registration books close on
Monday. Be a leader. Get registered.
Vote.

TODAY'S LETTERS


sibly be the result of sour grapes
from the 2004 election when Susan
Benton defeated Mike Brown, who
supports Ron Grimming. Could it
also be the result of the recent inven-
tory hullabaloo by Steve Newell, who
also supports Ron Grimming?
In regards to storage for both evi-
dence and dispatchers, newspapers
have had articles since 2005 advising
our community of Susan Benton's
concern for space for both these
items. How alarming it is to read
Grimming's quote, "that a law
enforcement office building is not
that unique."
I am not an engineer, but common
sense tells me otherwise. It makes me
wonder if there have been promises
made for land and construction of the
project by his camp. Does Mr.
Grimming think he can override the
local government on the issues that
are its responsibilities and not the
sheriff's department?
Furthermore, I made a point to
investigate the county's long range
financial strategy to see if "the coun-
ty has proposed a $64 million jail"
for Grimming and find it is not there.
In fact, according to the document,
there was only $100,000 budgeted for
repairs on the jail all the way through
2015/2016.
Those of us really concerned with
this Highlands County sheriff's race
must ask ourselves if this outsider
Ron Grimming, as referred to by
reporters from 1993 to 1997, is mis-
informed or being less than honest. I
would have hoped he would have
been able to back up his statements.
It is, therefore, necessary that we


voters do our research on Ron
Grimming, who retired to Highlands
County in only recent years, for we
do not need to have our community
faced with political favors implied in
his statements nor have problems the
FHP experienced from 1993-1997
under his leadership.
Perhaps all the voters in Highlands
County should ask and try to answer
the same question Millie Grime asked
in her recent letter to the editor:
"Does the Grimming group have a
hidden agenda?

Ideas for future festivals
in Avon Park
Editor:
An open letter to the Avon Park
Mayor and City Council:
In reference to our Spring and
Autumn Mall Festivals:
Item 1. The country/western music
provided during the Spring Festival
was very good. But there were no
bleachers for anyone to sit down and
enjoy it although there had been at
previous mall festivals. Why not?
Because many of us village elders
have tired legs and aching feet, we
can no longer stand at attention for a
half-hour or more. And leaning
against trees and street posts while
listening is not very comfortable.
Item 2. From now on during future
mall festivals, why not have 4-H ani-
mal displays at Donaldson Park,
which has an ideal closed lawn space
for those kind of special attractions
between the wood fence (near the
children's play area) and the boat


ramp on the far side. It certainly
would attract more parents and chil-
dren to visit and then to browse the
vendors on Main Street while there.
Also, there are two alpaca farms
here in Highlands County, in Sebring
and Lorida. Why not request them to
display their alpacas (like a sheep
with a long neck) as a special attrac-
tion because not many children or
adults have ever seen an "alpaka-
paca" in person.

Benton's record
stands on its own
Editor:
I don't understand County
Commissioner Barbara Stewart filing
a complaint with the Sebring Police
Department against Sheriff (Susan)
Benton for some kind of verbal
abuse? Like raising your voice for
emphasis? Is that a crime?
Benton is sincere about her job.
She doesn't belong to any "good old
boys club" and she says what she
thinks is right. If she needs to raise
her voice a couple decibels to get her
point across, she does it.
To me it's just plain frivolous
action for Commissioner Stewart to
take a charge like this to the Sebring
Police. These smears being brought
just prior to the election against
Benton won't hurt her. As measured
against former sheriffs, Benton has a
very good record. I'm a registered
Republican and Susan Benton will
have my vote!

What is a "good" meet-
ing?
A good meeting addresses
the pertinent issues and pro-
vides solutions to problems.
Practical tips on how to
improve home safety, how to
spot and what to do about
trouble or suspicious people.
Don't underestimate the
importance of conversation
and shared experiences. Light
refreshments are an attraction
and ice breaker. Informational
hand outs are also good, and
the community police officers
and crime prevention special-
ists are excellent sources.
Guest speakers often draw an
audience.

What kind of speaker?
Consider the problems the
neighborhood is experiencing.
If you live in an area where
teenagers are ditching school
and causing trouble, ask for
someone from the school dis-
trict to stop by. Invite elected
officials to keep them
appraised of your neighbor-
hood's needs. Invite an electri-
cian who can speak to the dif-
ferent varieties of motion
detectors, or a landscaper who
can suggest plantings to make
homes safer. And of course, be
sure your assigned crime pre-
vention specialist knows about
the meeting every time.

thorns or bougainvillea under
windows can be a major deter-
rent. Conversely, keeping door
ways clear of overgrown
shrubs removes a hiding place
from which someone might
spring.

How do we keep people
coming back?
Answer: Make sure people
remain in contact. At the first
meeting create a neighborhood
directory so neighbors can call
or e-mail each other. Accept
the help of anyone who offers.
There is always a job suitable
for any age or health condi-
tion. Have fun, too. Organize
block parties for example, or
organize a track and field day
for the children in the neigh-
borhood. Have a block garage
sale, or clean-up day. Start an
exercise-walking group, the
more people who belong in a
neighborhood and use the
neighborhood, the fewer
unscrupulous strangers will

were awarded the Janelou
Buck Significant
Achievement Award. This
award celebrates individuals
who have devoted at least 15
years to the Highlands Little
Theater.
Directors make nomina-
tions from their cast and pro-
duction team. Ballots are sent
to season ticket holders who
vote on set design, costuming,
the actors, director and play
of the year. The directors,
who must see at least one per-
formance of the play in order
to vote upon it, determine the
winners for technical awards
as well as the newcomer, the
cameo and artistic produc-
tion. The board of directors
nominates the non-production
volunteers.
The Zenon Awards are
named in honor of Zenon and
Marilyn Hansen for their con-
tributions to the theater. Both
now deceased, the Hansen
Foundation underwrites the
evening.


Students pick Lincoln in mock election


News-Sun photo by TREY CHRISTY
Students Ivan Viveros, (from right) Juan Ruiz, and Dontaysha
Gobourne decided to vote for Abraham Lincoln over George
Washington on Tuesday in the Lake Country Elementary mock
presidential election. Organized by volunteer Ginger Keimel,
(far left) the students voted for president by class and then
used a setup similar to the electoral college to determine the
winner.


Q&A: How to start a

neighborhood watch


JASA program helps save man from himself


Continued from page 2A
He heard about the Jail Alternative
Substance Abuse program, and to his
surprise he was ready to listen and
learn.
Not everyone is accepted into the
program. The selected inmates in
JASA are separated from the general
population for a 12-week program and
provided intensive counseling by Tri-
County staff and volunteer pastors.
There are life-skills classes every
morning and classes on how to handle
addictions learning trigger points
for example, and gaining self-aware-
ness. There are homework assignments,
and instead of television, inspirational
videos.
There are voluntary faith-based serv-
ices as well.


"It's like they try to will you to not
do what you did," Hall said. "George
Ridenour, Mel Williams, Charlie
Nelson and Bruce Linhart," he paused
trying to say what he wanted to say
just right. "It blew my mind away that
people who didn't know me could care
so much. I would feel guilty if I fell."
Hall spoke of fellow inmates in the
program who helped him as well.
"Believe it or not, there are some real-
ly nice people in jail," he said, "I was
surprised. Not a whole lot of them, but
more than I thought."
"I had to have everything and a slice
of bread," he said. "Now life has rolled
180 degrees. I'm a believer. I don't
swear anymore. I just keep focused on
doing the next right thing. It's very
simple to live your life like that, and it


has kept me out of trouble.
"I've been out two months, and have
a job at Park Place Truss. I'm so thank-
ful; they knew and they still gave me a
job."
The program doesn't leave former
inmates to struggle on their own, Hall
said. There is a regular weekly meeting
and support help from local churches
and Tri-County.
"The help outside has overwhelmed
me," he said. "I can't thank Dorothy
Reed (a nurse with Tri-County)
enough. She's there when I need her,
even bringing me food."
"I should have been dead, no doubt,
no doubt" Hall said. "JASA truly
awakened me, truly. I feel blessed. It's
a wonderful program."

In the weeks leading up to the election students studied the
two Americans and the electoral college that would eventual-
ly determine their next president even if they didn't win
the popular vote.
"We showed an example of how that could happen,"
Keimel said. "They were amazed it could be different."
In an exit poll taken by the News-Sun of a third-grade
class, Lincoln held an overwhelming majority of the votes.
"I picked him because he kept important papers under his
hat," Ivan Viveros said. "He's honest, he's brave, and he
stopped slavery."
Washington's proven record of leadership not only as the
first president of the United States but in the Revolutionary
War and his hand in the drafting of the Constitution were no
match for Lincoln's legacy.
"He was brave and honest, that's why they call him 'Honest
Abe,'" Jasmine Greene said.
Voters knew Washington was the first president, but they
were in awe of Lincoln's stand against slavery and his leader-
ship during the Civil War.
"They seem to know much more about him," Keimel said.
Using the electoral college system, Lincoln won by a land-
slide, taking the race with 28 votes to Washington's 2.
Of the 15 classes, five each for third, fourth and fifth
grades, every grade was assigned a certain number of elec-
tors.
Each fifth-grade class had three, each fourth-grade class
had two, and each third-grade class had one, explaining that
larger states, in this case classes, get more votes than smaller
ones.
Washington only carried one class, the fourth-graders of
Casey Svodoba, by a vote of 14 to 9.
He was close to carrying two third-grade classes as well,
with votes of 9 to 8 and 7 to 6.
The popular vote was 199 to 74.
Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States and
was the first president to be assassinated when he was shot at
Ford's Theater in April 1865 after winning a bid for re-elec-
tion in 1864.
News of the mock election results will be reported during
the morning announcements at LCE today.

HIGHLANDS LITTLE THEATRE 2008 ZENON AWARDS

News-Sun photos by Christopher Tuffley


Tammie Pollard gets a congratulato-
ry hug from her husband Pete
Pollard on being awarded the Zenon
for Director of the Year for the
musical 'Aida.' It was her second
award of the night, having shared
the Zenon with her husband for best
set design, also for 'Aida,' which
went on to win Best Show of the
Year.


Kelly Pelham reacts to hearing she has been award-
ed best actress in a supporting role for her portrayal
of Gertrude McFuzz in 'Seussical.' Christopher
Hayes, who was nominated for best actor for both
his work in 'The Pirates of Penzance' and 'Aida,'
presents the award.


Jennifer Westergom, who was nominated in several
'categories including best actress and won the
,award for best sound (she worked three separate
'shows), sings the clever, but difficult, number
:'Getting Married' from Stephen Sondheim's musi-
cal Company. Nelly Ford and Larry McCandless
were also a part of the number.


Marshall
McGuigan, who
with Lorraine
Morris present-
ed the award
for best set
design, had a
little fun spoof-
ing the play
'Dearly
Departed.' Both
he and Morris
were nominated
for supporting
actor Zenons for
that production.


Ken Coss and
Rose Marie
Tippins Beringer
presented the
Board Service
Awards, given to
individuals for
significant contri-
butions to the
Highlands Little
Theater that are
not related to the
production of a
play. Lindsay
Lynch, Lynda
Fulcher, Glenn
Fowler, and
Tracy Carrero
were -honored.


The Zenon
Awards show
held Saturday
night was a non-
stop evening of
entertainment,
with more musi-
cal numbers than
award presenta-
tions. Pictured is
the 'Big Spender'
number from the
musical Sweet
Charity. The
evening was
directed by Patty
Young who
selected the wide
variety of num-
bers.

Adam Meredith
sings 'So Close' a
number from
'Enchanted' during
the Zenon Award
show. He was nomi-
nated for Best
Performance in a
cameo or chorus
role for his work in
Agatha Christie's
murder mystery,
'And Then There
Were None.' Art
Harriman was
given the award for
his work as the
police sergeant in
the 'Pirates of
Penzance.' ..


Danny Wilson won the Zenon for
best stage manager for his work on
the musical 'Seussical.' His was the
shortest acceptance speech by far,
and just after he left the stage he
could be heard to say, "I don't do
on stage."


Josh McGhee was awarded the Zenon
for best supporting actor for his inter-
pretation of Mereb in 'Aida.' Here he
is in costume for a number from the
musical 'Side Show,' which he was
about to perform.

Even breastfeeding moms concerned about plastic baby bottles


Courtesy of ARA content
Breastfeeding mothers may think
they don't need to worry about
health concerns linked to plastic
baby bottles. But even breastfed
newborns may come into contact
with plastic containing bisphenol-A
(BPA) if their mothers use a breast
pump, feeding bottles or storage
containers made with the chemical.
"I want to be sure when I pump so
my husband can feed my daughter
that my breast milk is safe," says
Shari O'Neill, a suburban Chicago
mother of two children younger than
2. "I may be breastfeeding now, but
eventually my daughter will drink
from a bottle and a sippy cup. How
can the FDA say this chemical is
safe when the National Institutes of
Health says there is reason to be
concerned?"
BPA is a chemical used in the
manufacturing of polycarbonate
plastic the material used to make
many baby bottles, sippy cups and
other plastic water bottles. The U.S.
Food and Drug Administration has
said that BPA used in feeding prod-
ucts is safe for humans.
The National Toxicology
Program, however, has said they


can't rule out the possibility of
adverse health effects. "There
remains considerable uncertainty
whether the changes seen in the ani-
mal studies are directly applicable to
humans, and whether they would
result in clear adverse health
effects," the organization said in a
statement. "But we have concluded
that the possibility that BPA may
affect human development cannot be
dismissed."
"I am not taking any chances with
my children," O'Neill says. "I am
going to err on the side of caution
and choose only BPA-free products
for my children, and that includes
my breast pump and other breast-
feeding supplies."
Fortunately, it's not difficult to
determine if a plastic item may con-
tain BPA. Check the recycling code
generally located on the bottom of
the product. If the bottle is stamped
with recycling codes one through
six, it does not contain polycarbon-
ate. If you see recycling code seven,
the product is made of a combination
of different plastics and may contain
polycarbonate. Check with the prod-
uct manufacturer to be sure.
While lawmakers in areas across


the country are pushing state and
federal legislation to ban BPA in
child-feeding products, consumers
are already demanding BPA-free
products from retailers and manufac-
turers.
"We've seen a significant
increase in demand for our BPA-free
feeding products, including our
breast pumps," says Carolin
Archibald, vice president of
Medela's breastfeeding division.
"We decided years ago to remain
BPA-free. When your business is
based on feeding babies safety
should always be your primary con-
cern. That is why all our breast milk
bottles, storage containers and pump
parts that touch breast milk have
always been and will always be
BPA-free."
Breastfed babies could come in
contact with plastic containing BPA
if their mothers use a breast pump
that includes parts made with poly-
carbonate plastic, Archibald says.
When a mother pumps, the breast
milk actually flows through several
plastic components before it is col-
lected in a bottle or storage contain-
er. Public health studies show that
more than 70 percent of mothers


The effects of BPA in plastic has many parents concerned.


begin breastfeeding in the hospital
and of those, 93 percent purchase a
breast pump. "Unfortunately, not all
breast pump kits currently on the
market are BPA-free," Archibald
says.
Parents who want to learn more


ARA content


about health concerns related to BPA
can visit the National Institutes of
Health Web site at
www.ntp.niehs.nih.gov. For more
information on BPA-free feeding
products for baby, parents can go to

Question: I've had
Hashimoto's thyroiditis for
six years and I've not been
able to get full control of it.
My antibodies are still very
high and I'm always tired. I
just don't know what else to
do, and I've seen a dozen
doctors. Any fresh ideas?
M.C., Ocala
Answer: Hashimoto's is
an autoimmune disorder
where your own body sees
your thyroid gland as the
enemy and launches an all-
out attack. This creates
inflammation and destruction
of the thyroid gland. It caus-
es an increase in "antithyroid
- peroxidase," abbreviated as
TPO. This should be meas-
ured by your doctor in rou-
tine lab tests. Some people
have no symptoms while oth-
ers suffer with disabling
fatigue, depression, weight
gain, dry skin and hair, mus-
cle cramps, constipation and
memory loss. Some people
develop a goiter, which looks
like a hump just below your
Adam's apple.
Physicians prescribe thy-
roid medication in order to
raise levels of thyroid hor-
mone: Levoxyl, levothyrox-
ine, Synthroid, Cytomel and
Armour Thyroid. The med-
ications don't suppress the
autoimmune attack in your
body, but they do increase
levels of thyroid hormone
quickly. For now, here are a
few natural options. I'll put
more choices in my newslet-
ter.
Selenium: This mineral
can lower those TPO anti-
bodies I mentioned earlier.
This is awesome because
high TPO spells misery. Try
"L-selenomethionine" 200
mcg every day (or 100 mcg
twice daily) for six months.
Tyrosine: Your body uses
tyrosine (and iodine) to make
thyroid hormone. It's a stan-
dard recipe. Take about
500mg one to four times
daily. Careful, excessive
tyrosine can speed the heart.
Iodine: You can take
iodine supplements such as
"lodoral" or you can use a
seaweed that is very rich in
trace minerals, especially
iodine. It's called
"Bladderwrack," which is
short for Fucus vesiculosus.
Use short-term.
Ashwagandha: Also
known as Indian ginseng,
this herb stimulates thyroid
activity; it's sold widely at
health food stores. Make sure
your brand is "standardized."
MycoPhyto: This is a
blend of mushrooms that
calms your body down. It
tells your immune system to
"Stop! Get a hold of your-
self!" I love medicinal
mushrooms because they are
smart, they know how to bal-
ance your immune system


and calm the
S overactive
cells that
S An spark all the
trouble. This
product can
be used for
Dear ^ any type of
Pharmacist immune sys-
Suzy Cohen tem disorder.
This brand is
sold online at various
Internet sources.
Coleus forskohlii: This is
an herb from the mint family.
Disregard the funny name,
it's powerful. It boosts ener-
gy, improves allergies, asth-
ma and psoriasis; it boosts
thyroid levels and can help
with glaucoma.
Avoid soy since it lowers
thyroid hormone. So does
eating a lot of broccoli,
Brussels sprouts, and other
cruciferous vegetables. Stick
to lower doses of I3C and
DIM (supplements used in
prostate and breast cancer).

macist. For more information,

FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS


Sebring
Recreation Club
By Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING As the cold
begins to strengthen, more of
our friends think of us and our
weather. I have just heard
from some people that they
would be arriving in Sebring
soon. This made my mind go
to shuffleboard and how I
wish more players from
Sebring Grove would come
and shoot with us. They have
many ladies and men that
would do well. They have
many fine players and would
also add to the good shuffle-
board players from Sebring in
Highlands County tourna-
ments.
I just read that the News-
Sun started publishing in
1927. This was the same year
that this club got its start only
as the "Tourist Club." In 1997
the club changed its name to
Recreation Club, in which
you will find many activities
for you to enjoy.
Both men and women play
ping-pong. They are looking
for more interested people all
the time, so if you have any
interest, come and try it. You
would be under no obligation
to join if you did not care for
the experience.
Bridge is played at this
time. Other card games would
be played if enough interest
were shown.
So if you have a group that
is interested, see Ed Straub
and watch what happens. Line
dancing takes place
Wednesday from 6-8 p.m.
anyway. The hall is opened
early and it is cooled off a bit
before most arrive. If you
dance other nights at other
places you are still welcome
to dance with us.
We now come to shuffle-
board at the club in Sebring.
Beginners are most welcome
and much attention is given if
they want it. You may learn
the game from friendly play
to tournament play. You will
play for 25 cents for three
games Monday and


Wednesday evening and every
player winning ice cream at
the end of the evening.
Members have so much
offered them by the club.
Saturday night is pin shuffle
that you will either love or
hate. Most people that hate it
learn to like it when they see
how it helps them improve
their game. Nickel shuffle-
board will be on before long.
You will want to try this one
with your three nickels. You
may even make 15 cents for
the afternoon. The fun that
you have is so much greater
than the money.
Anna Eldredge and Ruth
Parker were the only two from
our area to win at Lake
Region tournament Sept. 18.
These two ladies are becom-
ing well-known in the shuffle-
board world. And you will
have to travel a long distance
to find as nice of ladies as
these on any court. This was
the season end for the summer
league. Now we move on to
more tournaments both
Florida state, district and
county tournaments. If you
desire, you can shuffle on
Monday and Tuesday in a
state tournament. Then if you
have not had enough,
Thursday and Fridays bring
district alive. When you
decide on tournament play,
you meet new people that you
will enjoy.
Irvin Ishman was back
shuffling with us again. He
has been traveling in
Pennsylvania. Delaware and
Lord only knows where. Irvin
will be 95-years-old Oct. 14
this year and is still going
strong. He has asked Rich
Elleson to shuffle with them
at his park, so they can have
four players in the off-season.
He will be leaving soon for
another cruise this year, Irvin
sure loves his cruises. If we
live to be 95 years old, I hope
we are as alert as Irvin is at
this age.
When this one goes to print
you will have some people
returned and ready to play
shuffleboard. I am wondering
who will be the first of the


club back this year. Club
directors and officers are get-
ting ready for the new season.
Ed has kept it a secret about
the club direction and his
thoughts this season. John
Bushee is on top of shuffle-
board this season as always,
as well as court maintenance
to some of the best in Florida.
He has tournaments all in line
so you will be sure to have
some that you can make. John
is in need of people to help
him this season; for some of
his past help is over the hill.
John will not ask you for help,
but all of us can do a little.
When you do help, if you do
not know, ask so that your
help will not have to be re-
done.
Lake Placid is represented
at line dancing and maybe at
bridge, but shuffleboard only
has players in the winter
months from Lake Placid. You
are welcome to join and play
shuffleboard year round with
us. Most of our courts are
covered so rain and sun are no
problem with the game. Come
up and give us a try as our
guest.
Call with your questions
and also your suggestions at
386-0245. We can be found at
333 Pomegranate Ave., in
back of the police station.

Legion auxiliaries come together at Post


25 to plan coming year of work


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
American Legion Auxiliary
was proud to see so many
committed women in the dis-
trict drive, many of them long
distances, to see that their
units are well informed of the
plan of work for the ladies
this year.
The workshop at Post 25
Lake Placid was a time of
sharing what each unit had
been doing above and beyond
the plan of work for the
American Legion Auxiliary.
Each unit president was proud
to bring several ladies inter-
ested in learning more about
where they best fit into the
plan of work and therefore the
largest crowd for some time
gathered here on the Ridge to
continue learning and going
back to their respective com-
munity and giving there all.
"It is too bad people don't


take the time to learn what
these great ladies and other
organizations do for and in
the community, and get away
from the idea that these
organizations are just about
sitting around a bar," District
President Darlene Watkin
said.
These veteran groups and
social clubs are about a lot
more than social activity.
They live and breath there
commitment to the veterans,
children and community. This
year, department president
Kathee Coughlin's theme is
"celebrating service to the
red, white and blue and taking
care of our community is
being responsible for our
environment." Therefore dis-
trict mascots of Native endan-
gered species have been cho-
sen and District 8's is the
Manatee.
The district will be taking


its education of saving the
manatees into the classrooms
from Venice to Avon Park and
all through the district with
one class in Ohio even adopt-
ing one.
"I have adopted Nick the
manatee for myself and have
learned so much on what we
do to our environment and am
going to visit him at the state
park where he winters,"
Watkin said.
To learn more about saving
the manatee, started by
Jimmy Buffet, go to
www.savethemanatee.com or
call Watkin at 314-9107. To
know more about being part
of the Auxiliary contact the
local post and see why the
Auxiliary brings H.O.P.E.,
meaning Honoring Our
Promises Everyday to our
country and all living crea-
tures.

week ahead of Run to the Heartland


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Bikes, Blues

Heartland Riders
Association's Appreciation
Banquet on Saturday at the

"If you are in this room
tonight, you are important to
the success of Run to the

tions, help and support of this

ducing the Heartland Riders

CLUBS NEWS SNAPSHOTS


Garden Club of
Sebring
SEBRING The Garden
Club of Sebring met at the
Sebring Civic Center at noon
Sept. 22 and enjoyed a nice
luncheon. All the members
brought in a covered dish for
this first meeting of the new
year. The executive board
served as the hostess com-
mittee. The table decorations
were provided by Sandy
Smith.
President Anita Bargar
welcomed all members back
for the season and introduced
all the guests. The invocation
was given by Ann Holly, fol-
lowed by the Pledge of
Allegiance. After everyone
enjoyed the lunch, Barbara
Edwards read a letter sent by
Kevin Bassett. The Garden
Club sponsored Kevin for the
Camp Wekiva this summer.
Kevin was unable to attend
due to school, but he pre-
pared a nice display board
showing all of his activities
he enjoys.
The business meeting was
called to order by Bargar
with the introduction of the
new officers: Betty Cleary,
treasurer; Pat LeFiles, secre-
tary; Gloria Francis, second
vice president; and Lucy
Wheeler, first vice president
and club counselor. LeFiles
gave the secretary's report
and Betty McCleary gave the
treasurer's report. Francis
passed out the New Year
book that she had prepared.
Carol Oleskie gave the
horticultural report on the
"Ligustrum." She showed
two types of this plant/tree,
lucidum Japonicum and
sinense. They will grow in
full sun or partial shade and
grow to be about 10-15 feet.
The only problem with these
plants is snowy scale. They
are low moisture plants after
they have been established.
George Smith, plant chair-
man, encouraged all members
to start grooming their plants


for the upcoming plant sale
to be held at the Roaring '20s
Festival on Feb. 14, 2009,
with the proceeds from this
sale going toward the club's
Civic Beautification Fund.
Some plants were brought in
by members to share with
other members. These pro-
ceeds will be added to the
plant sale fund.
Sandy Smith, co-chairman
of the plant sale, gave a
report on the Scrub Jay, stat-
ing that very few habitats are
in existence today due to
development. This species
are in danger of becoming
extinct. The families of these
stay together for about two
years before going their own
way.
Jo-An Neff encouraged all
members to bring homemade
items to the next meeting for
the boutique table. Cathy
Hatfield suggested that all
members, during the regular
meetings, bring their own
table service to help with
recycling. By not using paper
plates and Styrofoam cups,
the club can make a differ-
ence.
The District IX fall meet-
ing will be held on Oct. 17 in
Estero. This will be hosted
by the Fort Myers-Lee
County Garden Council. The
club will be hosting the
Spring District IX meeting


on May 7 at the Sebring
Civic Center. Preparations
were being discussed and
committees formed.
The next regular meeting
will be held at the Sebring
Civic Center on Oct.r 27 with
a program by DeeDee
Jacobson, horticulture agent
for the Highlands County
Extension. She will speak on
snakes.

Sebring Moose Lodge 2259L lTOA.1


donates to Hansen House I


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Following the community call
of the Moose, Governor Charlie Cerventes
was happy to chair a golf outing at Golf
Hammock to see the girls' quiet room at
Hansen House get a face lift.
The Moose is a social club started in the
1800's that in looking for a community pur-
pose decided on children and community serv-
ice to be their aim.
The members take great pride in their
national children's home and accredited
school in Mooseheart, Ill., that cares for near-
ly 300 children. This home is so revered in the
nation that the city is now known as The


Child City."
The home has a special house for each state
with house parents to care for their particular
home. The children are housed, educated,
clothed and have their needs met just like in a
regular household.
The wonderful thing is in developing the
child into adulthood they have vocation train-
ing, encouraged to play sports, and if they
maintain a B average they can get scholarships
to further their education.
Moose showed their devotion to children
and community by donating $1,000 from the
golf outing to Hansen House with the hopes
this outing will become a regular event.

Congratulations are in
order for five SFCC Panther
baseball players, as they have
been selected to play in the
FCCAA All-Star game on
Nov. 2 at the Chain '0 Lakes
park in Winter Haven.
The five Panthers chosen to
represent SFCC are pitchers
Johnny Sedlock and Chaz
Abeln, outfielder/pitcher
Cameron Nelson, catcher Jerry
Neufang and infielder/pitcher
Austin Gaines.
"Each of these players were
selected All-Conference from
last season, or had quality
numbers from last year and
were nominated by their
respective coaches," SFCC
head coach Rick Hitt said.


"We are happy for each of our
guys who will get an opportu-
nity to play in this event.
"It is well scouted, profes-
sionally, and is well attended
by four year institutions,"
Hitt continued. "Each player
has to have performed on the
field and in the classroom to
get an opportunity to be nom-
inated. It is a credit to these
players and their work habits
both on and off the field that
has lead to their selections."
And the Panther players will
be lead by familiar faces, as the
SFCC coaches will serve as the
Suncoast All-Star staff.
"It will be fun to work with
our guys and the many other
talented players in our
league," Hitt said. "We are
looking forward to it."

Dragons move to 2-0 in



district quest

Kaneisha Hamilton does some high flying as she throws
down this kill in Lake Placid's three-game sweep of McKeel
Academy Tuesday night.


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID Despite a slight hiccup,
the Lady Dragons made it two in a row to
open up their district schedule with a win
over McKeel Academy Tuesday night.
The first game saw the Lady Tigers break
out to a 3-0 lead, but Lake Placid came
flooding back.
Behind four service aces from Sierra
Weaver, the Dragons went on a nine-point
run to turn a 6-6 tie into a 15-6 lead.
From there, Lake Placid outscored
McKeel 10-5, with the help of an Ali Baker
block, a Weaver kill and two aces from
Christina Wells, for a 25-11 win.
The second game started out much the
same way the Tigers clawing out to an
early lead and the Dragons roaring back.
But with a 21-14 lead, and the game. seem-
ingly sealed, the hiccup came as McKeel
reeled off five straight to pull within two.
A Baker kill stopped the run, but another
three-point spree tied things at 22-22.
Kaneisha Hamilton then threw down a
kill, but McKeel answered back.
A deftly-touched tip by Weaver, though,
got the next point for Lake Placid and the
next point was theirs too for the nerve-
wracking win.
"They relaxed, lost focus and weren't
talking," head coach Marilyn Jones said. "At
one point I thought I was going to have to
put another six players in there."
But, jarred to their senses, perhaps, by the
close call, the Lady Dragons came out strong
in the third game, begun by a Hamilton kill
that virtually set the tone.
Lake Placid had the early lead and never
gave it up with points coming from all over.
Kayla Summerfield had three kills,
Hamilton added another, Weaver had two
plus a service ace.
Jessica Wantuck got into the kill zone as

did all 5-foot-2 of setter Julie Shrewsbury in
the 25-14 clincher.
"I think Frostproof was a bit tougher, but
this is a scrappy team," Shrewsbury said.
"They.kept the ball moving. There were times
we'd be about to turn around and celebrate a
point and the ball would come back over."
And though the three-time defending dis-
trict champs have started off on a roll, they
know it won't be an easy road.
"Both Frostproof and McKeel came to
play and they seem to have stepped it up
from last year," Shrewsbury added.
Next up is a match at Mulberry.
"That's never an easy place to play," Jones
said. "For some reason we never seem to be
comfortable there. But this group should be
able to overcome that. They pulled together
tonight and I'm real proud of them.


Heartland progress continues

SEBRING The Heartland
Christian School Crusaders
girls volleyball team made it a
clean sweep Tuesday night at
home when they
downed the Vanguard Heart
School Panthers 25-
15, 25-7, 25-20.
"We underestimated I
them that third game, Vang
but overall I am proud
of the girls, they
played well," said
head coach Shannon
Fassler.
Vanguard struggled with
the serve return, allowing sev-
eral to hit the floor without
attacking, allowing Heartland
to lead the entire match.
The Crusaders completely
dominated the second game,
allowing the Lady Panthers
just seven points, three of
which were Crusader mis-
takes.

But during the third game,
the Vanguard School showed
some life, tying the game late
at 16-16, and forcing
Heartland to step up to regain
the lead.
"I am not sure what was
happening that third game,"
said Fassler. "But the
and girls are really learning
this year, and a couple
of my seniors are step-
ping up and leading. I
ard am especially proud of
Christie Davis and
Caitlin Cwalinski.
Those two seniors are
taking the lead and it is help-
ing this team a lot."
"We are starting to come
together as a team, and it
shows," added Fassler.
The win came off a
Monday night loss in a a
rematch with the Lady
Dragon junior varsity.
Heartland Christian battled
through five tight games
before coming up short at
Lake Placid.


Each of the games were
closely contested with the
Lady Crusaders winning the
first, 25-18, losing the sec-
ond, 22-25, and third, 20-25,
before evening things up with
a 25-21 win in the fourth
game.
The tie-breaker was
also very close, with Lake
Lake Placid coming
out on top 15-12.
So the Dragons got a
bit of revenge for an Hea
earlier loss to i
Heartland, but the
Crusader's didn't come
away empty handed as,
despite the loss, progress was
again seen in their play.
"I'm extremely proud of
them," Fassler said. "They got
frustrated at times, but they
kept their heads up. I saw
enthusiasm, I saw teamwork
and I hear communication.
"They're really learning to
work together whether ahead
or behind," Fassler continued.
"We still have some things to


F

work on in learning how to
finish games, but they are get-
ting better each match."
The Cwalinski sisters were
a force on the night, with
Caitlin serving up several
aces in the first game and
Carolyn recording several
kills later in the match
?lacid to keep things close.
Kayla Selander and
Davis both showed
steady and solid sets
land for the Heartland hit-
ters and Kayla
Kaszubowski and
Bekah Watts played
smart and aggressively at the
net giving the team clear
examples of the progress
being made in all facets of the
game.

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne
Hoehne 5:

Upsets, a tie-

breaking shame

and playoff

paranoia

I guess my last column's
headline was more prophetic
than I thought.
It read 'year of the upset,'
in relation to how it might
bode well for a certain cou-"
ple of teams in the upcoming
baseball playoffs.
I wrote it on Friday arid it
ran in Sunday's paper, but
somehow it paved the way
for a whole other slew of
upsets on Saturday's college
football schedule.
Four of the top-ten ranked
teams were beat I'm sure I
don't need to remind anyone
of the local 'reptile repre-
sented' team that was in the
midst of them.
I mean, it was one thing
for USC to lose at Oregon
State last Thursday, but the
Trojans are usually good for
one of those types of upsets
each year.
But then Georgia, poised
to possibly jump to the top
with the USC loss, got liter-
ally run over by the Crimson
Tide of Alabama, leaving the
door wide open for
Oklahoma to be the new
number one.
The #4 Gators lost to
Mississippi, #9 Wisconsin
got topped by Michigan and
even Wake Forest, at #16,
got beat up by Navy, of all
teams.
Narrowly avoiding an
upset was Auburn, which
barely got past Tennessee,
14-12.
If things keep going like
that, the BCS might actually
implode this year.
The upsets continued into
the NFL on Sunday well,
only one really, but it was a
doozy.
Kansas City, basically left
for dead after three miserable
losses, somehow beat
Denver, a team that was
looking like a legitimate con-
tender with New England
and Indianapolis coming
back to the pack.
I mean, the Chiefs were
looking so bad over the first
few weeks, ESPN writer Bill
Simmons listed them in his

LOOKING BACK

5 YEARS AGO
October 3, 2003: The Blue Streaks ruined DeSoto's Homecoming with a dramatic, come-from-behind
win in the games final minutes.Trailing 7-3, quarterback Rod Nash connected three times with receiver Ryan
Williams to drive Sebring to the Bulldog 1-yard line. On the next play, Nash bulled it across the goal line with
1:11 left in the game. With time still left to drive, DeSoto was held in check by Blue Streak defenders Dion
Williams and Josh Miller who helped sack the Bulldog quarterback three times to run out the clock.
15 YEARS AGO
October 5, 1993: The Sebring swim team got a taste of superior competition in hosting a tough tri-meet
including Class 5A Lakeland.The Dreadnaughts won both the boys and girls side of the meet, with Sebring
taking second ahead of Bartow. Kristy Murphy notched the lone Blue Streak win, taking the 100-yard breast-
stroke. Beth Harstine, Jen Ogbom and Brenda Hegg each had second-place finishes for the girls while Todd
Timko took a second for the boys in the 100 breaststroke, less than a second off the lead.

Continued from 1C
power rankings as one of
three teams that were saying
to themselves, "My God, this
is a living hell. Four months
to go? Really?"
Denver was listed as
among seven teams that
could say to themselves that
they had a legitimate chance
of winning the Super Bowl.
So yes, it was a doozy.
Back to baseball, I find it
downright odd that the Twins
and White Sox played
Tuesday's tie-breaker in
Chicago.
The two teams finished
with identical records after
the Pale Hose beat Detroit
Monday in a make-up game.
In the NFL, teams with the
same records are then subject
to a series of tie-breakers, the
first being their season record
against one another.
If that were the case,
Minnesota would be in the
playoffs and the Sox out, as
the Twins won the season
series 10-8 but baseball
doesn't do that, they'd rather
settle it on the field.
Which is fine by me, but
then why would the Twins
then have to be at a disad-
vantage in that rubber match?
With the better record
against Chicago this year,
shouldn't that have given
them the benefit of home
field?
It's Tuesday afternoon as I
write this, so maybe
Minnesota won and it didn't

Really?'

matter but if they ended up
losing, well, that just doesn't
seem right.
But with the playoffs start-
ing up, this could be a quite
entertaining and elating
October.
Tampa Bay is breaking
into the fall follies for the
first time and elation is
sweeping over Rays Nation -
well, maybe Rays
Neighborhood.
Any win they have from
here on out is just another
chapter in a storybook sea-
son.
A feel-good story that will
feel good no matter if they a
bumped in the first round or
if they win the whole thing.
Up north, I can assure you,
the feelings among the
Cubbie die-hards (I am an
official member) are mixed
between impending hysteria
and impending doom.
Each win brings the eupho-
ria a little bit closer, while
each loss will feel like a kid-
ney punch that ties your mid-
section in knots.
That's how ingrained the
losing is, and the losing in
grand, excruciating fashion.


In some ways, we are
desensitized to it, wait for it,
expect it.
We're not numb, though,
and each year's shortcoming
does hurt.
But that is why, if it ever
does happen, it will be outra-
geously exciting, celebrated
and the city will rock like it's
never even considered
before.
To quote a fan from an
article in last week's Sports
Illustrated a long-time fan
who perfectly fit the desensi-
tized, expecting the losses
almost to the point of being
numb to them "If they ever
do win it, all, I will cry like a
baby, and then laugh like a
hyena for a week."
Exactly my sentiment.
But those are the last
words you will read from me
on this topic.
As a means to keep myself
out of the karmic mix my
superstitions are well docu-
mented not a word will be
written about the Cubs until
their playoff run is done,
whether it's a few days from
now, or a few weeks down
the road.
Then again, fingers
crossed, I may end up taking
a few days off in a couple
weeks for a mad-dash trip
back home as I knock on
wood.
