County Commissioners decided Tuesday to continue to allow more access to the public boat ramp at Lake
Denton, which was locked up tight on Tuesday morning.



County decides to increase


access to Lake Denton ramp

Controversial access point will be open every day


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
AVON PARK County com-
missioners voted unanimously to
keep the Lake Denton boat ramp
open year round, even after a com-
mittee suggested otherwise.
The ramp had been open, with a
fee for usage, from 8 a.m. until 4
p.m. on the weekends from
Memorial Day to Labor Day. The
board decided to keep the access
point open seven days a week with
the same hours.
The citizens committee didn't
propose restricting access to the
lake, but instead suggested the
Orange Blossom Baptist
Association Camp be used.


"It's my own suggestion we go
outside the box a little bit and try to
find a grant to put in a. rCL.i'.il;,
small boat launch area," said Jack
Richie, who presented the commit-
tee's finding to the board of county
commissioners. "(They) would be
all for it; they just don't have the
money to do it."
This started 90 minutes of some-
times heated discussion about
where the access of Lake Denton,
and all the area lakes, was going.
"If we close one access, will we
have a domino effect? No,"
Commissioner Barbara Stewart
asked, then answered. "I think we
are better stewards to our national
resources than that."


Early on it was clear that most of
the commissioners didn't want to
listen to the committee's sugges-
tion they wanted the public to
retain access.
"The safety issue has been taken
care of as far as I can see,"
Commissioner C. Guy Maxcy said,
after he spoke of public urination
and drug paraphernalia found at the
boat ramp before the county inter-
vened.
It was also clear the impact the
Baptist camp next door to the boat
ramp had on the problems.
"They have been extremely good
neighbors," Commissioner Don

Release Program

from stalling

Judge Ritenour, sheriff to
meet Friday after judge
raises 'serious issues'


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING In a drastic move last week,
County Court Judge Anthony L. Ritenour
brought the Highlands County Weekend
Work Release Program to a screeching
halt, but an on-the-ball response from
Sheriff Susan Benton quickly put most of
the judge's issues to rest.
In the first letter, dated Oct. 1, Ritenour
outlined what he calls "serious issues" and
refused to "allow anyone to
serve jail time on the
Weekend Work Release
Program" until. such time
that he received notice in
writing that the concerns
had been reconciled.
"The integrity of the Benton
Weekend Work Release
Program has been severely
compromised. Until such
time that the program las
been brought to a higher
standard, no one will be
sentenced to serve any part
of their sentence on the
Weekend Work Release Ritenour
Program,' the letter stated.
One of the issues raised was a concern
of whether those on the Work Program
were-actually working.
In the letter, Ritenour stated that "the -
Work Release program is to make the
defendants work, not to have them sit
behind a desk for some non-profit organi-
zation."
And Ritenour demanded a list of the
entities used for the program to make sure
that they were also in compliance.
Along with various agencies around the
county, organizations on the current com-
munity work locations include Nu-Hope of
Sebring and Lake Placid, the Highlands
County Art League, and the city of Avon

Fundraiser for Shriners Hospitals set for Saturday


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFELY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING The Shriners
are perhaps best known for
their colorful fezzes and the
tiny cars they drive in
parades, but their real pur-
pose, philanthropic work, is
both big hearted and far
reaching.
According to their Web
site, Shriners have built and
currently run 22 hospitals
across the country, all of
which treat children up to the
age of 18 completely free of


charge.
Insurance coverage and
ability to pay is never an
issue.
Nineteen of the hospitals
provide care for congenital or
acquired orthopedic condi-
tions. Four hospitals provide
acute and rehabilitative care
for burn injuries. Three hospi-
tals provide rehabilitative
care for children with spinal
cord injuries, and the cleft lip
and palate program is expand-
ing to multiple Shriners' hos-
pitals.


Stocks tumble as


Street worries


By TIM PARADISE
AP Business Writer
NEW YORK The mis-
ery worsened on Wall Street
Tuesday, with stocks piling
on losses late in the session
and bringing the two-day
decline in the Dow Jones
industrials to more than 875
points amid escalating wor-
ries about credit markets
and the financial sector.
The Dow lost more than
500 points and all the major
indexes slid more than 5
percent. The Standard &
Poor's 500 index saw its
first close below 1,000 in
five years.
Steps by the Federal


Reserve to reinvigorate the
dormant credit markets ulti-
mately weren't enough to
calm nervous investors.
News about financial com-
panies only added to their
despondent mood.
"The calls I'm getting -
every money manager I deal
with, and every client I talk
to are just very emotion-
al. This is a very, very emo-
tional time, and most of
them are taking steps to
shore up their defenses,
reducing exposure to stocks
just to defend their portfo-
lios," said Hugh Johnson,

Shriners Hospitals for
Children are also research
institutions, and provide resi-
dency education and post-
graduate fellowships for
physicians.
The hospitals have been
serving thousands of children
since 1922.
Now comes an opportunity
to help this organization with
its good work.
Saturday, the local Shriners
Club is sponsoring a fundrais-
ing dinner to benefit the
Shriners Hospitals for


Children. Tickets are $20 per
person.
In addition to a 50/50 draw-
ing and a silent auction with
items like hotel stays, golf
packages, and women's jew-
elry among many items -
there will be entertainment
courtesy of the Sweet
Adelines.
The food, a sirloin tips din-
ner, will be served by local
"celebrities" and community
leaders, including: Don
Elwell; Barry Foster; Sandy
Foster; Susan Jones of the


Mid-Florida Board; Wally
Randall; Bill Rettew;
Christopher Tuffley.
The guest of honor is a very
special young lady, 8-year-old
Leigh Dittman.
Leigh almost didn't make it
into this world, having a con-
genital disease that leaves her
bones so brittle they easily
.break. Doctors warned the
family she wouldn't survive
infancy and advised an abor-
tion.

Heartland

Rural Health

Network gets

$498,000 grant
Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK The
Heartland Rural Health
Network Inc. received notifi-
cation from Senator Bill
Nelson's office that it has
been awarded a grant from
the United States Department
of Health and Human
Services' Administration for
Children & Families in the
amount of $497,830.
This is a five-year grant,
with a potential total funding
of $2.5 million. This
Community Based
Abstinence Education
Program Grant will help
address the alarmingly high
teen pregnancy rates in rural
Highlands, DeSoto and
Hardee counties.
According to the Florida
Department of Health, out of
Florida's 67 counties,
Highlands, DeSoto, and
Hardee counties rank 29th
highest, third highest, and
second highest, respectively,
for births to girls under 18.
"The Heartland Rural
Health Network is enormous-
ly pleased with the support
and financial assistance being
provided by the U.S.
Department of Health &
Human Services by funding
of this grant. This funding
will enable us to work closely
with our community partners
and other community agen-
cies to address the high rates
of teenage pregnancies in our
rural communities," said J.
Rudy Reinhardt, executive
director of the Heartland
Rural Health Network. "The
Network would like to thank
the legislators at both the
state and federal levels for
their continued support of
programs that benefit our
rural communities, especially
our younger populations."
The Heartland Rural
Health Network is one of nine
rural health networks in the
state of Florida. These net-
works were created by an act
of the State legislature in
1993. The primary mission of
the Heartland Rural Health
Network is to get together
with the health care providers
in our area to determine the
best way to provide and
deliver health care services to
rural residents.
According to the Florida
Department of Health's data
registry, there were 138 births
to girls under 18 in these
three rural counties in 2006
(latest data available). The
National Campaign to
Prevent Teenage Pregnancy
estimates that these 138
babies born to teen parents
equal a $2,835,000 cost to
local communities. This dol-
lar amount includes costs
from birth to age 18.
Kelly J. Johnson, the
Network's health planning
director, stated, "This grant
will really enhance our
efforts to address the high
rates of teenage pregnancy in
the three rural communities
by implementing a variety of
youth centered programs that
uses evidence based educa-
tional materials.
"The real purpose of these
programs is to educate our
youth and create an environ-
ment within our own rural
communities that supports
teen decisions to postpone
sexual activity until marriage.
We want to reduce the num-
ber of teens having babies
and our programs will really
support this effort."
The Heartland Rural
Health Network will work


closely with the Highlands,
DeSoto and Hardee county
health departments, Teen
Pregnancy Prevention
Alliances, each of the coun-
ty's school boards, and sever-
al faith-based organizations
to implement abstinence edu-
cation programs that focus on
youth 12-18 years of age. It is
anticipated that through these
programs. 3,410 youth will
be served.
The Network will also con-
tract with the University of
Florida to evaluate this proj-
ect over the five-year grant
period.

Children in need of court-

appointed Guardians


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING There are hun-
dreds of abused, neglected and
abandoned children in
Highlands County that need a
voice in court. The Guardian
ad Litem Program is in need of
volunteers to advocate for
these children and t6 represent
their best interest in court
hearings.
A "Guardian ad Litem" is a
volunteer appointed by the
court to protect the rights of
children to be the child's
"guardian" in court. The vol-
unteer advocates for the best
interest of children involved in
court proceedings primarily as
a result of alleged abuse, neg-
lect or abandonment. The
Guardian ad Litem makes
independent recommendations
to the court by studying, eval-
uating and communicating the
needs of each child. The
Guardian simply meets with
the child, family, school and
others involved with the child
to get a well-rounded view of


the situation. They then attend
court hearings to provide input
as to the best interest of the
child regarding placement and
other needs. The Guardian ad
Litem advocates for the best
interests of each child that
they represent.
Currently in Florida, there
are more than 30,000 children
who need representation in
court. There are 5,400
Guardian ad Litem volunteers
statewide. Highlands County
has 40 active Guardian ad
Litem volunteers.
Guardian ad Litem
Volunteers are:
+ Ordinary citizens who
respect a child's right to grow
up with dignity in a safe envi-
ronment that meets that child's
best interests.
People with common
sense, compassion and dedica-
tion to children.

Christmas spirit will march on in AP

es Virginia, there Everyone benefits, and there is not the parade would have to be canceled. NEWS-SUN
; +vtn rn ntethe,facft that The~ chambr bo amrd made a decision N w


Swill be a Christmas
... parade.
Avon Park is known for
its parade. It is hailed as
one of the largest and best
organized events in the
county.
During the parade, the downtown
becomes packed with an estimated
5,000-6,000 visitors.
Non-profit organizations and some
local businesses take advantage of the
extra crowds and raise funds for their
organizations.


L etteL way toLU promote en. aULLI M.
Avon Park is a friendly community
concerned about family events.
Because of the economy, city leaders
made the budget decision to cut in-kind
services for all entities, including the
Christmas parade.
That means no free police or fire
support for the parade, or any other
event.
It wasn't a bad decision, and it was
definitely necessary, even if it was an
unpopular solution to the budget
crunch.
The Chamber of Commerce was
faced with the daunting task of coming
up with an extra $4,000 somewhere, or


to raise the entry fee, and community
leaders on the Main Street CRA and the
Southside CRA came forward and
agreed to help sponsor the parade.
Coupled with business leaders,
retailers and other individuals who
stepped up providing the needed funds
to help pay for the services needed to
host the parade, the funds are coming in
to help pay for the services needed.
Hats off to the Chamber of
Commerce, to parade organizers and to
the community of Avon Park.
Without their hard work, there would
be no Christmas parade in Avon Park
this year.

Rude and uncaring
come to mind
Editor:
My wife and I are residents of
Highlands County for three months
every year.
I spent 40 years in law enforce-
ment and public service and worked
every level from patrolman to chief
of police and finally town manager.
I currently teach Spanish for law
enforcement in North Carolina,
Georgia and Florida.
Several times I have assisted
police officers in the Sebring area
by translating for them when they
had someone stopped who did not
speak English.
Realizing the large Spanish-
speaking population of the area, I
contacted the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office to offer a basic
course in Spanish that would cover
words and phrases needed by the
deputies to protect themselves as
well as assist them in performing
their duties.
The eight-hour course would be
given free of charge and the sheriff
could invite neighboring agencies if
she chose. This was in early
December 2006.
The lady that I spoke to at the
Sheriff's Office advised me that the
sheriff would not be available until
after the holidays and we set a time
for January 2007.
On the date of the meeting I went
to the Sheriff's Office and I was
told that the sheriff was in a meet-
ing. I waited for close to an hour
past the time of the appointment and
as I was preparing to leave, a major
came into the waiting area and took
me into his office. The sheriff didn't
have time for me. I offered my serv-
ices to the major and gave him my
card. To this date I have never been
contacted.
Two words come to mind: Rude
and uncaring.
Since that time I have watched
the sheriff's race with great interest
and I have only one comment, Ron
Grimming for Sheriff.

Plenty of good people
help through JASA
Editor:
I want to start out saying what a
great job News-Sun staff writer
Christopher Tuffley did in my story
describing the Jail Alternative to
Substance Abuse program at the jail.
It was very detailed and naming the
instructors who run the program that
do such a wonderful job.
There are some things that I


would like to add.
Sheriff Susan Benton had to jump
through hoops to get the JASA pro-
gram in Highlands County Jail. If it
was not for her the program would
not be here today and coming back
for another year. If she is not re-
elected it would be a travesty to this
county. I would also like to recog-
nize Captain Johnson as a staunch
supporter of the JASA program and
Sergeant Murphy, Officer O'Malley
and Krieder for the respectful way
they treated me. Also Dorothy Reed
and Linda Travers who are the two
head nurses for the sheriff's depart-
ment have helped me immensely.
I also want to recognize Pastor
George Ridenour, his wife Kathy
and all the members of the
Community Bible Church and
Pastor Bruce Linhart and all the
members of Highlands Community
Church for there support. I had all
of my worldly possessions kept
from me in this relationship and all
the furnishings in my home were all
donations from Community Bible
Church members.
I also want it known that I hold
no anger or animosity toward my
ex-girlfriend and that I have and
will love her for the rest of my life.
Also, I want your readers to know
that the restraining order that was
taken out against me was financially
motivated and at no time had I ever
hit or harmed this woman in any
way. This was my first time in jail
in my life.
Also, of the 15 months time I did,
I did six months voluntarily to rid


myself of two years probation they
wanted me to do. It is public record
that State Attorney Celaya stated in
court to Judge Estrada that he could
not present this matter to a jury
because of the number times she
called me. This women violated her
own order 192 times by phone calls
alone, not counting the number of e-
mails she sent me, the times that we
instant messaged each other and
seeing each other in person. She
kept all my worldly possessions
from me and owed me money and
that was her basis for getting the
restraining order.

Hardened boundaries
may be answer
Editor:
I would like to express my thanks
and gratitude to the members of the
Kenilworth Crime Watch
Association for refusing to let a few
irresponsible trouble makers destroy
their neighborhood. We own several
duplexes in the area and are greatly
effected by the decline. We have had
a unit vacant for over three months
and whenever we tell people where
they are located they say never
mind.
Our tenants have a right to expect
a safe, pleasant place to live. I
think the plans for a hardened
boundary between Park Crest and
Wightman Avenue would be the
only way to stop the flagrant tres-
passing and vandalism being done
24 hours a day.

Due to illness we have been
unable to attend meetings but hope-

There are many
champions for children
Editor:
Thirty-seven years ago I was for-
tunate to be offered a social work
position with the state in Highlands
County. At that time I had no idea
what a unique and wonderful place
this would be to live and work. This
county is peopled by remarkable
individuals who have taught me,
mentored me, supported me and
encouraged me throughout my
career. From Alice Hanson who was.
my first supervisor and mentor, to
Susan Franza Buelow who has been
my friend and co-worker throughout
my career, to Kevin Roberts who
has been many things to me includ-
ing supervisor, role model and
friend, everyone who I have worked
with or for has been wonderful.
I recently had the honor of receiv-
ing the Judge Kelly Champion for
Children Award. This is truly an
honor and privilege for me and the
high point of my career. I had the
good fortune to have known Judge
Kelly and of having presented cases
in his court. He was truly a remark-
able and gifted man. The only thing
that could have made receiving this
award better would have been to
have him present on the stage.
I, however, must say that it is
easy to be a "champion" when you
are surrounded by the citizens of
this county. What other county our
size has an accredited Children's
Advocacy Center that was built with
a unique public/private partnership?
What other county our size has such
outstanding sports complexes for
our children and youth? Where else
can you find so many individuals
willing to donate time and money to
so many causes from the YMCA to
educational awards to sports pro-
grams? What other community our
size has an expanding Boys and
Girls Club, Big Brothers and Big
Sisters, as well as extremely active
Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and 4-H?
What other county our size was
ready with money, time and energy
to address the teen parent problem
with supportive services and preven-
tive programs? And I could go on
and on!
To each and every citizen of
Highlands County: You are the true
champions who have made the lives
of many children better and my job
more fulfilling! Thank you all.

American is not such a dupe.
Maybe, despite the East Coast
media and political spin, most
Americans know full well that
they and their good neighbors are
not the perpetrators of our scary
financial meltdown. Maybe that's
why so many Americans believe
Washington's zillion-dollar
bailout bill is such a crock.

The bailout

is a crock

It's not your
fault you don't
know that the
percentage of
American home
mortgages in
foreclosure
today is about
2.75 percent.
That shock- In The
ing but true fig-
ure hasn't been News
emphasized Bill Steigerwald
nearly enough
by our favorite politicians and
media sensationalists, who, as
they usually do when real and
imagined "national" crises appear,
have managed to create the mis-
leading impression that the cur-
rent foreclosure mess affects
every second or third American
household.
Yes, the financial crisis is real.
Yes, some homeowners and Main
Street folk have behaved badly.
Yes, the greedy, corrupt corporate
and political rats on Wall Street
and in Washington are largely
responsible for the meltdown that
will cost us and our grandtaxpay-
ers untold hundreds of billions if
not trillions of inflated dollars.
And yes, the near-quadrupling
since 2005 of our annual mort-
gage foreclosure rate (historically
about 0.7 percent) has ignited a
banking and credit crisis that
looks to be dragging the whole
world into recession.
But there are two truths about
the foreclosure mess that our
beloved media especially the
-TV branch have done a lousy
job of revealing to the masses.
One is that 97 percent of
America's home mortgage loans
are not in the process of being
foreclosed.
The other is that the mortgage
crisis is not spread evenly across
America. It is concentrated in
some very specific and some
very predictable geographic
and demographic places.
Perfect national statistics are
hard to come by. But according to
the Mortgage Bankers
Association, as of Aug. 1, most
new foreclosures were occurring
disproportionately in eight states.
Four are the usual suspects -
Nevada, Florida, California and
Arizona, boom states where
regional housing bubbles were
fueled by an irresponsible alliance
of house-flippers, predatory
lenders, fraudulent borrowers and
notoriously politicized federal
laws like the Community
Reinvestment Act, which forces
banks to give mortgages to poor
people and even illegal immi-
grants who can't afford or qualify
for them.
Four other states Michigan,
Rhode Island, Indiana and Ohio
can blame tough economic
slumps for their higher rates of
new foreclosures. The remaining
42 states are actually below the
average national foreclosure rate,
which the MBA says is higher
than at any time in the last 36
years.
The good folks at
Foreclosure.com provide a current
state-by-state listing of houses in
various stages of financial doom.
As of Thursday, its national count
of homes already in foreclosure
was 496,000. California's number
alone was about 175,000.
Florida's was 51,000, Nevada's
22,000 and Ohio's 10,037.
Pennsylvania's was a distant
2,879, West Virginia's a humble
576 (no jokes, please) and
Vermont's was a saintly 97.
Those wildly divergent numbers
are no surprise to
Foreclosure.com's spokesman
Stephen Chip, who blames the
media specifically the cable
channels for making it seem
our foreclosure spike is a result
not of a relatively few bad actors
but of the collective irresponsibil-
ity of American homeowners.
But maybe the average

Lawsuit: Bill Heard

violated federal labor law


By KATE BRUMBACK
Associated Press
ATLANTA The compa-
ny with the nation's largest
chain of Chevrolet dealer-
ships violated federal labor
law when it fired thousands of
employees last month,
according to a lawsuit filed by
a former worker.
Edward Kratzel, who
worked at a Bill Heard
Enterprises Inc. dealership in
Las Vegas, filed the lawsuit
Friday in U.S. Bankruptcy
Court in northern Alabama.
That is where Columbus, Ga.-
based Bill Heard sought
bankruptcy, protection on
Sept. 28 after shuttering its
remaining dealerships four
days earlier.
The company, which had
operated in seven states, said
its 14 dealerships were losing
from $2 million to $5 million
a month because of a drop in
sales coupled with a lack of
available credit.
The lawsuit against Bill
Heard and about two dozen
affiliated companies claims
they violated employees'
rights under the Worker


Adjustment and Retraining
Notification Act. The WARN
Act says companies must give
at least 60 days advance writ-
ten notice of firings and con-
tinue to pay certain wages,
salary and benefits during the
notice period, the lawsuit
said.
"It's time for 'Mr. Big
Volume,' as Mr. Heard called
himself, to ensure that his
employees survive this transi-
tion in accordance with the
law," Kratzel's lawyer Jack A.
Raisner, of New York, said in
a statement.
Fred Caruso, a spokesman
for Bill Heard Enterprises,
said in an e-mail that the com-
pany had no comment on the
lawsuit.
The company closed 13
dealerships in Alabama,
Florida, Georgia, Nevada,
Tennessee and Texas on Sept.
24. It had closed its
Scottsdale, Ariz., dealership

Continued from page 1A
chairman and chief invest-
ment officer of Johnson
Illington Advisors.
The magnitude of the stock
market's plunge is reflected in
the Dow's grim stats:
Tuesday's close was its
lowest close in five years,
since Sept. 30, 2003.
+ In just five trading days
this month, and in the fourth
quarter, it is down about
1,400 points, or 13 percent.
It has fallen 33.3 percent
since its record close of
14,164.53, a year ago
Thursday.
Through Tuesday, it suf-
fered its largest five-day point
decline ever, and its largest
five-day percentage drop
since the Sept. 11, 2001, ter-
ror attacks.
The Dow's percentage loss
Tuesday was 5.11 percent,
actually a better performance
than the 5.74 percent suffered
by the S&P, the market indi-
cator most watched by traders
and analysts. The Nasdaq
composite dropped 5.8 per-
cent.
The market's paper loss for
the session came to about
$700 billion, as measured by
the Dow Jones Wilshire 5000
Composite Index, which
tracks 5,000 U.S.-based com-
panies' stocks. So far this
month, the loss has come to
about $2.2 trillion.
Federal Reserve Chairman
Ben Bernanke warned in a
speech Tuesday that the
financial crisis could prolong
the difficulty the economy is
facing. While his remarks
were widely regarded as a
sign that an interest rate cut
could be in the offing, Wall
Street appeared little comfort-
ed and focused on his down-
beat assessment.
Earlier, the Fed announced
plans to buy massive amounts
of corporate debt to jump-
start lending in the markets
where many companies turn
for short-term loans. called
- ctimercial paper. The evapo-
ration of faith thato&ans will
be repaid has lenders weary
and is making it more diffi-
cult and expensive for busi-
nesses and consumers to bor-
row.
The credit markets did
show some slight signs of eas-
ing as demand for safe-haven
investments decreased,
though that offered little com-
fort to investors highly anx-
ious about the extremely low
lending levels and their
impact on the economy. The
markets seized up last month
after Lehman Brothers
Holdings Inc. filed for bank-
ruptcy and the government
stepped in to rescue insurer
American International Group
Inc.
The Fed's latest move to
lubricate the credit markets
stops short of a broad interest
rate reduction that some
investors say is necessary to
restore confidence in the mar-
ket. Other market watchers
argue, however, that more
focused steps like Fed's deci-
sion to buy commercial paper
are what's needed.
Investors remain worried
about financial companies
like Bank of America Corp.,
which fell after slashing its
dividend and reporting that its
third-quarter profit fell 68
percent. The stock fell $8.45,
or 26 percent, to $23.77
Tuesday. It was by far the
steepest decline among the
30 stocks that comprise the
Dow industrials.
And a rumor that
Mitsubishi UFJ Financial
Group Inc. was pulling out of
a deal to acquire up to 24.9
percent of the voting shares of
Morgan Stanley sent the
investment bank's stock tum-
bling $5.85, or 25 percent, to
$17.65. The companies
denied the rumor, but the


Street was panicky enough
that it still sent Morgan
Stanley and other financial


Olivier Douliery/Abaca Press/MCT
Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke announced
Tuesday morning that it would buy the short-term debt
issued by major domestic and foreign corporations based in
America. The bold move, which speaks to how difficult it has
been to thaw the frozen credit markets and get banks lend-
ing again, puts the Fed into another area traditionally out-
side its banking domain: backstopping corporate America.


tumbling.
Investors are fearful that
financial companies will con-
tinue to face cash shortages
even with efforts in
Washington and by other gov-
ernments to resuscitate lend-
ing.
"It's such a widespread loss
of confidence and, to some
extent, a race for the exits,"
Johnson said.
Stocks ended lower for the
fifth straight session. The
Dow fell 508.39, or 5.11 per-
cent, to 9,447.11. The drop
came a day after the blue
chips fell below 10,000 for
the first time in four years.
The Dow skidded as much as
800 points on Monday before
trnihin with a loss of 370.
Broader indexes also fell.
The S&P 500 index declined
60.66, or 5.74 percent, to
996.23, the first close below
the 1,000 mark since
September 2003. The Nasdaq
composite index fell 108.08,
or 5.80 percent, to 1,754.88.
The dollar was mostly
-lower against other major cur-
rencies, while gold prices
rose.
Oil prices rebounded after
plunging Monday to an eight-
month low on concerns a
global recession will under-
mine demand for crude.
Light, sweet crude rose $2.25
to settle at $90.06 a barrel on
the New York Mercantile
Exchange.
Concerns about the credit
markets still fed demand for
the relative safety of govern-
ment debt, though pressures
eased. The yield on the three-
month Treasury bill, which
moves opposite its price,
rebounded to 0.81 percent
from 0.50 percent late
Monday. Demand for short-
term Treasurys remains high
because of their safety;
investors are willing to take
extremely low returns just to
have their money in a secure
place.
Some investors moved out
of longer-term Treasury
bonds, which don't draw as
much demand as shorter-term
debt in times of fear. The
yield on the 10-year note rose
to 3.51 percent from 3.50 per-
cent late Monday.
Investors are still hoping to
see other moves from the Fed
to boost confidence.
Australia's central bank low-
ered interest rates by the
largest amount since 1992 in a
surprise move, and that
reignited hopes that others,
including the Fed and
European Central Bank,
might follow suit.
Though not giving the mar-
ket a rate cut, the Fed has


taken other steps to help
unclog the credit markets. On
Tuesday, policymakers pro-
vided more details, about
when it will make $900 bil-
lion in short-term loans avail-
able to squeezed banks.
The loans are made avail-
able to banks through auc-
tions. The Fed, in coordina-
tion with other countries' cen-
tral banks engaged in similar
efforts, laid out dates that it
will conduct the auctions
through the rest of this year.
But write-downs of bad
debt at Bank of America are a
reminder to investors that
troubles within the financial
sector remain, according to
Kim Caughey, equity research
analysts .ai Fort Pitt Capital
Group.
"I think we have weeks of
volatility ahead of us," she
said. "We're not overly opti-
mistic but we're not indulging
in doom and gloom either."
She said the arrival of quar-
terly results from corpora-
tions has made investors even
more jittery, with investors
seeking any information
about how companies are far-
ing. She said some companies
could go under because of the
tough economic conditions
but that the stronger players
would survive.
"You're going to get that
Darwinian shakeout process.
That's going to happen from
the mom and pops all the way
up to the big boys," she said.
Minutes from the Fed's last
meeting described a U.S.
economy that was slowing
considerably and credit mar-
kets that were deteriorating
rapidly. The meeting was held
Sept. 16, the day after the
failure of Lehman Brothers.
The central bank's Open
Market Committee found the
risks from weaker growth and
higher inflation were roughly
equal; that was its rationale
for leaving rates unchanged.
Policymakers, who will meet
again at the end of the month,
left key interest rate
unchanged at 2 percent.
About 2,800 stocks
declined on the New York
Stock Exchange, while fewer
than 400 advanced.
Consolidated volume came to
6.84 billion shares, compared
with 7.81 billion shares trad-
ed Monday.
The Russell 2000 index of
smaller companies fell 36.96,
or 6.20 percent, to 558.95.
Overseas, Japan's Nikkei
stock average fell 3.03 per-
cent. Britain's FTSE 100 rose
0.35 percent, Germany's
DAX index fell 1.12 percent,
and France's CAC-40 rose
0.55 percent.

Work Release Program raises concerns


Continued from page 1A
Park Recreational Center.
A second concern raised
by Ritenour was about how
the Affidavits of
Noncompliance were han-
dled after they were issued.
Benton responded to his
letter immediately, and
informed Ritenour that an
investigation was already
under way.
Benton assured the judge
that most of the issues were
already being addressed.
In a second memo dated
Oct. 2, Ritenour wrote, "I
have been advised that the
Sheriff's Office is making
strides to correct the issues
at hand."
Furthermore, Ritenour
noted that "Sheriff Benton
already advised that a plan


to correct the issues was put
in place before her receipt of
my Oct. 1, 2008 letter."
Ritenour also relented on
the moratorium of the Work
Release Program for those
already sentenced, but still
would not allow any new
additions until he was satis-
fied that all of his concerns
are addressed.
Ritenour has a meeting
with Benton on Friday to
make sure all of his concerns
are addressed.
According to Major David
Paep.low, Highlands
County's detention com-
mander, back in July a deten-
tion deputy, Levon Stokes,
had "improperly disposed of
an Affidavit of
Noncompliance." Upon dis-
covery of the incident


Paeplow asked Internal:
Affairs for an investigation.
Based on that investigation,,
Stokes was moved to another
position and disciplined.
Paeplow then began the
work to install safeguards to
make sure the incident did
not reoccur.
"Once we discovered that
there was a problem, we took
care of it immediately,"
Paeplow said. "We then
installed procedures to make
sure that this sort of thing
does not happen again."
"I am confident that we
have met all the judge's
requests. After the meeting
on Oct. 10, I am sure that
this will be cleared up,"
Paeplow said.


Lake Denton ramp to be re-opened

Bates said.
"Extremely good," Richie
echoed.
Scuba divers and other
members of the public inter-
ested in using the lake were
able to pay a $10 fee to the
camp, which provided park-
ing and bathroom facilities.
The county charged a fee
of $25 and did not have any
facilities due to lack of
space. In the months they
operated the fee-based
access, they collected $75.
"The camp came on and
saw a need," Stewart said.
"The private sector saw a
need."
The camp had a swim-
ming area, not provided by
the small 40-foot wide boat
ramp.
"A 40-foot area is not a
recreation area nor is it a
park," Richie said. "We tried
to purchase land around
there .. we can't. It's just too
expensive."
The boat ramp area was
restricted to swimmers

"There were too many

Ridge Area Arc comes aboard


to help AP Depot Museum

Arc consumers get life training, Museum gets needed manpower


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Ridge Area Arc
has climbed all aboard with the
Avon Park Depot Museum to offer a
memorable dining car experience.
The two non-profit organizations
have joined efforts to help each
other. The museum needed volun-
teers to do janitorial and mainte-
nance type duties in the museum as
well as assist with the dining car
luncheons while Ridge Area Arc
needed a training site for consumers
to learn job skills in the community.
"It has been a perfect partnership
for our organizations to work
together and help one another espe-
cially during this time where funds
are limited," Ridge Area Arc
Director of Program Development
Cindy Marshall said.
Ridge Area Arc started in May
with one consumer going to the
museum to vacuum the entire build-
ing. Then two ladies washed dishes
in the dining car in June after a
luncheon. Since then, it has grown
to a seven-member work crew that
does everything from table set up to
food and beverage service to clean
up.
The dining car training has con-
sisted of topics such as personal
hygiene, proper dress attire and
appearance, table settings, how to
pour a beverage, how to carry food
to a table, customer conversation,
etc. This program has helped the
Arc consumers to build their self-
esteem and confidence so they can
carry their heads high and smile
with pride in knowing they have
helped their community.
"I get to meet people. I get in the
community," dining car worker
Angie Luft said. "I am learning to
listen and follow instructions. It
helps me to not be shy. I want to get
a job in the community so I can
save money to go to camp."
"I learned how to set up tables,
wash dishes, serve plates and
drinks," dining car worker Alex
Lopez said. "I get nierfous when
- serving, but it makes me feel good

me feel good to do this.
If I work hard, I get to
keep my own money
and save for stuff'

ALEX LOPEZ
Arc consumer

to do this. If I work hard, I get to
keep my own money and save for
stuff."
Joining Lopez and Luft in the
crew are Leon Gordon, Andre
Rushing, Carlita Hawkins, Maricel
Moreno and Ricky Marino. They
each have a learning disability, but
that has not stopped them from
wanting to work.. Ridge Area Arc
focuses on what their abilities are
instead of their disabilities.
Sometimes it's not their disabilities
but the environment around them
that causes more difficulties in
training.


"The biggest challenge for my
crew has been working in the small
space in the dining car. They have
actually been practicing how to pass
each other in the aisle without
spilling the food or beverage they
are carrying. It's almost like chore-
ographing a dance routine,"
Marshall said.
The crew has assisted with three
luncheons and one dinner party
which are fund-raisers for the muse-
um. While the museum benefits
from the proceeds of the lunches,
the Ridge Area Arc servers do
receive tips from the dining car
patrons.
Museum Director Elaine Levey
hopes to be able to raise enough
money from the lunches to do some

provide her people with high energy
and enthusiasm," Marshall said.
Levey added, "It's been a big
help to have the Arc folks setting up
the tables beforehand, serving the
food and cleaning up. These folks
do so much for us from beginning
to end. They are all well trained,
they're very good workers and
they make my job much easier."
Professionalism has been empha-
sized in the training to make sure
each server is cordial, polite and
appears clean and well groomed.
The servers all wear black pants,
white shirts, black shoes, white


aprons and gloves.
"The service was excellent. It
appeared real clean and profession-

gloves and they were well
groomed," said Donna Doubleday,
vice president and chief operations
officer for Heartland Workforce in
Sebring, who participated in a

'thank you' and 'excuse me.' I
appreciate those smiles." She also

centers in Sebring the Hope
Villa Child Development
Center and the Martin Luther
King Child Development
Center have recently
received national accredita-
tion for excellence in the care
of young children.
The centers are among 10
in Highlands County operated
by RCMA, which provides
child care and early education
for approximately 8,000 chil-
dren of farm workers and
rural, low-income families in
21 Florida counties.
The awards, from the
National Accreditation
Commission for Early Care
and Education Programs, con-
firm that licensing standards
have been exceeded; that
Hope Villa and MLK staff
have benefited from profes-
sional development; and that
the children have a nurturing
environment conducive to
their growth and develop-
ment. More than half of
RCMA's 70-plus childcare
centers statewide are nation-
ally accredited.
Under the direction of
Center Coordinator Carmen
Esquilin, the Hope Villa Child
Development Center provides
child care and after-school
programs for 47 children ages
6 weeks to 12 years. Hope
Villa has 13 teachers and

staff.
Serving 31 children ages 3-
5 years, the Martin Luther
King Child Development
Center is under the direction
of Center Coordinator
Marjorie Thomas and has 10
teachers and staff. In the
2007-08 school year, RCMA
served 720 children in
Highlands County.
RCMA was founded in
Miami-Dade's Redlands
farming area in 1965 by
Mennonite Church volunteers


to provide a safe, nurturing
place for migrant workers to
leave their children while
they harvested the crops.
From three original centers in
the Homestead/Florida City
area, RCMA has since
expanded into 20 other
Florida counties to become
Florida's largest nonprofit
child-care provider.
Children enrolled in
RCMA's preschools and child
development centers receive
essential building blocks for


their growth and education,
including development of
social, motor and literacy
skills, age-appropriate play
and good-health practices.
English-language learning is a
priority.
RCMA is funded by local,
state and federal grants, as
well as the generosity of busi-
nesses, individuals, the
United Way and other organi-
zations.

excellent."
Judy McLaughlin, of
Sebring, who dined in the
dining car Sept. 27 at a
luncheon for a group of
women with the Knights of
Columbus, said
"I can tell you that every-
one enjoyed the lunch
immensely. There was so
much talk about it. It was a
very pleasant experience.
Everyone did an excellent
job."
Pastor Doug Peretti of
Memorial United Methodist
Church in Lake Placid con-
sidered "it a blessing" to wit-
ness the Ridge Area Arc con-
sumers doing such go6d work
for the museum. Peretti par-
ticipated in a dinner party
with his church in August.
"It is real difficult to get
past the public's perception
that all people with disabili-
ties are incompetent and
unclean, which is so untrue,
so I have gone overboard in
making sure their appearance
and performance is top
notch," Marshall said.
"They can easily do this
work with the proper train-
ing. I am so proud of their
accomplishments in such a
short time and I can't wait to
see what the future has in
store for them."
As for the future, Ridge
Area Arc will continue work-
ing at the museum and dining
car. If any organization or

Marshall at 452-1295, ext.

shall@ridgeareaarc.org.
For those who would like
to book a luncheon at the


dining car, contact Levey at.
453-3525 or e-mail her at
museum@strato..net. The
museum is at 3 N. Museum
Ave., Avon Park. Museum
hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Tuesday through Friday.


The museum, governed by
the Historical Society of
Avon Park, was formerly the
Seaboard Coastline Depot
that opened in 1926. In 1981
it became a museum. In
1986, a 1948 California
Zephyr dining car was added.
Luncheons are served in
the car for groups of 15-40
people but it is not a restau-
rant. Volunteers prepare the
meal. The dining car features
tablecloths, cloth napkins and
silver. Some diners are fortu-
nate enough to experience the
roar of a train as it passes on
the nearby railroad track.
The museum offers a tour
prior to dining in the car. Jim
Deal, who portrays a conduc-
tor, takes the visitors back in
time with a tour through the
museum. He shares such his-
torical moments such as
brown 'n' serve rolls were
invented in Avon Park; the
world's largest bombing
range was in Avon Park in
the 1940s; Lake Tulane is the
oldest lake in North America
which is 50,000 years old;
and there is a switchboard in
the museum that was the last
to be used by a telephone
company in Florida.
"I was fascinated by the
history that was conveyed,"
Doubleday said. "I did not
know there was an Air Force
Base in Avon Park. I was also
fascinated by the history of
the dining car."


Terror case: Top court won't hear ex-prof's appeal


Associated Press
McLEAN, Va. The U.S. Supreme
Court on Monday turned away an appeal
from a former Florida professor once
accused of being a top Palestinian terror-
ist.
The high court's decision eliminates
one of two major impediments that have
stalled prosecutors from bringing Sami
Al-Arian to trial' for refusing to testify to
a grand jury in northern Virginia investi-


gating terror financing.
Al-Arian, who once taught computer
science at the University of South
Florida, struck a plea bargain in 2005
admitting that he conspired to assist the
Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
The plea bargain came after a lengthy
trial in Florida failed to obtain a convic-
tion on more serious charges alleging
that Al-Arian had been one of the leaders
of the PIJ.


Al-Arian argued that the terms of his
plea bargain barred the government from
demanding his testimony in other terror
cases because the usual language requir-
ing cooperation had been stricken from
the plea agreement.
But the llth U.S. Circuit Court of
Appeals in Atlanta disagreed with Al-
Arian's interpretation, and on Monday
the U.S. Supreme Court refused to inter-
vene.

Toastmasters Club
SEBRING Are you
afraid to speak in public?
Are you good at public
speaking? Do you like to
speak in public? Do you
like to have fun? Do you
like to meet new and inter-
esting people? Do you like
to help others improve? Do
you like to improve your-
self? Would you like to
become a better leader?
A positive response to
any or all of the above
questions means
Toastmasters International
is for you. And you are in
luck because there is a new
Toastmasters Club forming
in Highlands County right
now.
What exactly is
Toastmasters? And no they
don't make toasters.
From a humble beginning
in 1924 at the YMCA in
Santa Ana, Calif.,
Toastmasters International
has grown to become a
world leader in helping
people become more com-
petent and comfortable in
front of an audience. The
non-profit organization now
has nearly 235,000 mem-
bers in 11,700 clubs in 92
countries, offering a proven
- and enjoyable way to
practice and hone commu-
nication and leadership
skills.
Most Toastmasters meet-
ings are comprised of
approximately 20 people
who meet weekly for an
hour or two. Participants
practice and learn skills by
filling a meeting role, rang-
ing from giving a prepared
speech or an impromptu
one to serving as timer,
evaluator or grammarian.
There is no instructor;
instead each speech and
meeting is critiqued by a
member in a positive man-
ner, focusing on what was
done right and what could
be improved.
Good communicators
tend to be good leaders.
Some well-known
Toastmasters alumni


Sebring Elks donate


include: Peter Coors of
Coors Brewing Company,
Debbi Fields, founder of
Mrs. Fields Cookies, Tom
Peters, management expert
and author and Linda
Lingle, governor of Hawaii.
If interested in joining
the new Highlands County
Toastmasters Club forming
right now, call 441-0469.

TOPS 632
SEBRING The Tops
Club meets eve ry Monday
at First Baptist Church of
Lake Josephine. Weigh-in
begins at 2:30 p.m. and the
meeting begins at 3:30 for
approximately one hour.
For more information, con-
tact Judy O'Boyle at 840-
1331.
Two members joined the
club, Carolyn Michael and
Linda Hensley. Losses out-
paced the gains again this
Week with a respectable
showing. The Best Loser of
the Week was Ervin Edson,
who chose gift from the
prize box.
Yes-Yeses for the coming
week are apples and carrots
at least three timess and the
No-No is cake. A new name
was drawn for the travel
gift, Lois Gibson. Maureen
Raymond took a wrapper
off the mystery gift and the
mystery gift goes on. Billy
Beam won the riffle.
There was no old or new
business, just several
announcements. The pro-
gram entitled "You Don't
Have to be Perfect' was
presented by Donna Raaf.
Stress is a large cor.tributor
to weight gain and she
talked about several of the
worst stresses we can face
and how to combat the
body's need to immediately
turn to "comfort food'
which, contrary to popular
belief, does nothing to alle-
viate stress. Some coping
mechanisms may include

Local 'balloon season' gets started early


Boys and Girls Club Balloon

Festival planned Nov. 14


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK It's that time
of year. It's time for the
Highlands County to be invad-
ed by hot air balloon pilots.
And it all started at 6 a.m.
Thursday in Avon Park.
As pilots Jon Thompson and
Bob Carlton raised their color-
ful, massive balloons at the
Avon Park Airport, the
motorists on State Road 64 wit-
nessed the first sighting as they
were making their drive to
work. Gina Bexley of Lake
Placid looked on as the bal-
loons were being filled with all
the anticipation of a first-time
rider.
Both pilots smiled as Bexley
walked across the parking lot.
"We usually don't go up in hot
air balloons with high heels
on," shouted veteran pilot
Thompson over the roar of the
burners firing up as the bal-
loons' massive fabric began to
sway and fill.
By the time Bexley returned
from her car, clad in sneakers,
the balloons were fully inflated
and ready for lift off. With a
face full of excitement, Bexley
leapt into one of the balloon's
basket.
Bexley might have been a
first-time rider, but this was not
the first time she has thought
about riding in a hot air bal-
loon. She organizes her team of
realtors, from both the Sebring
and Lake Placid RE/MAX
offices to create the kid's activ-
ities at the hot air Balloon
Festival, including free face


painting, popcorn, goodie bags,
and RE/MAX helium balloons.
Today Bexley's anticipation
turned into reality.
Her company is one of the
major participants of the annu-
al Highlands County Boys and
Girls Club Balloon Festival
that will be held at the Sebring
International Raceway.
Every year, hot air balloon
pilots gather from all over
Florida to carry local hot air
balloon enthusiasts on rides
over the county for a weekend,
tethered rides at the festival,
and fire up the beautiful bal-
loons at the "Night Glow"
event to raise funds for the
Boys and Girls Clubs.
This year's fundraiser will
help raise the next club to be
established in Lake Placid.
"Last year we raised over
$7,000 and this year promises
to be even more successful,"
said Pam Mooney of Ridge
Florist, who is the event coor-
dinator.
"We are expecting to exceed
the thousand people that
attended last year. And more
impressively, it is heartwarm-
ing to see the outpouring of
support from local businesses
to benefit the future of our
youth."
Past participants have been
tremendously supportive. Any
business that would like to join
the fun, should call Moody at
465-4092. The event will be
held at the Sebring Raceway
starting at 3:30 p.m. Friday,
Nov. 14.

Streaks top


Braden River

By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING Unbeknownst to the Lady
Blue Streaks, Avon Park was pulling off
an upset of Palmetto just up the road.
But Sebring had their own score to set-
tle and district standings to secure.
Having lost to Palmetto last week, the
Streaks were in danger of falling to fourth
in the district, meaning a match-up with
DeSoto in the district tournament.
But a four-set match-win over second-
place Braden River atoned for an earlier
loss in Bradenton and put the team solid-
ly in third.
"This was the biggest win of the year
for us," head coach Venessa Sinness said.
,We got down early but the girls really
came together. Our defense and serve
receive were what won this for us."
In each of the first two games, early
deficits were overcome with perseverence
to the tune of a 25-22 win in the opener,
but it wan't quite enough in the second as
they fell 25-20.
But that just set the stage for epic bat-
tles in the final two sets.
The biggest lead for either team in the
third set, for most of the way, was two.
But, up 20-18, the Streaks rode two
Molly Blackman kills to prevail 25-21
and then come back from a 12-7 deficit to
win the clincher 25-22.

Dragons fly past Terriers


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID Their
second game was but a little
bump in the road as the Lady
Dragons kept on rolling with
a three-game sweep of
Moore Haven in non-district
play Monday night.
With district matchups at
Frostproof and McKeel
Academy on the docket for
the week, the overmatched
Terriers might have been
overlooked.
But after the opening
point went Moore Haven's
way, Lake Placid roared
back to take a 5-1 lead, then
a 15-4 lead before coasting
in with a 25-11 win -mak-
ing the night look like it
would be a quick one.
A mix-and-match of play-
ers in the second game, how-
ever, and a gritty perform-
ance by the Terriers dragged
things on a bit longer.
After again bouncing out
to a 5-1 lead with kills from
Tiffany Bisbey and
Elizabeth Barragan and a
Julie Shrewsbury ace, Moore
Haven came back with four
straight to tie it.
A Jessica Wantuck kill

get the lead back, but the
Terriers kept biting at their
heels, tying it at 8-8, then 9-
9 before pushing their own
lead out to 14-12.
But Sierra Weaver then
became a force, recording
two kills, a block and a serv-
ice ace to get the Dragons
back up 19-16.
Moore Haven again came
back with three straight to
tie it again and it was nip-
and-tuck the rest of the way,
with Lake Placid having just
enough to hold them off in
the 25-22 win.
The scare, rather than car-
rying over, was the wake-up
call for the Lady Dragons
who stormed out of the gate
and never looked back.
Weaver came up big with
four kills, two aces and a
block in the 25-10 win.
Adding to the scoring bar-
rage were Kaneisha
Hamilton with two aces,
Kayla Summerfield with a
kill and a tip and
Shrewsbury, the team setter,
getting set up herself for a
kill.
"I'm pleased with any
win," head coach Marilyn
Jones said. "I'll. take an ugly

upset of Palmetto


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK In volleyball
it's all about the teamwork, and
the Avon Park Lady Devil
most assuredly personifitec
that Tuesday night when they
upset. Palmetto 25-14, 27-25
25-20.
A controversial call during
the second set forced Avor
Park to come together in ordei
to prevail, but the lady spikers
were able to pull off the upse
at the end.
"We found out that Sebring
lost to this team, and we
thought we would do this foi


Sebring," said Melissa Tullo
after the game.
, Tullo would end the night
J with five aces, five digs, and
s three kills.
d "Melissa was wide open for
Y us tonight," said Stephanie
, Devlin, Avon Park's head
coach.
g Daija Barrett was credited
n with four kills, four blocks, and
r two digs and teammate

Streaks, Dragons strong at Heartland Invite

Dragons deliver in diving, Bishop Verot dominant throughout


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.cbm
LAKE PLACID The 2008
edition of the Heartland
Invitational Swim Meet was
as competitive as ever, with
strong showings throughout
the day as eight schools and
dozens of swimmers took to
the Lake Placid High School
pool.
In a very tight team finish,
the North Port boy's team
totaled 389 points to take the
top spot, just four points
ahead of the Green Dragon
boys team's 385.
The rest of the boy's team
standings saw Hardee in third
with 368, Biship Verot fourth
with 306, Sebring fifth with
300 followed by Avon Park's
202.5, Frostproof's 169 and
Okeechobee's 110.5.
Bishop Verot took first
place amongst the girl's teams
with a whopping 565 points
with Sebring and Lake Placid
taking second and third with
491 and 375.5 points, respec-


tively.
Okeechobee was next with
242.5, followed by Hardee's
208, North Port's 174, Avon
Park's 98 and Frostproof's 70.
The meet actually got
underway Friday evening
with the one-meter diving
competition.
Caleb Hardy of Frostproof
won for the boys with a total
of 322.25 points with Avon
Park's John Chittum taking
second with 317.70 and
Hardee's Sheldon Hartman
third with 284.95.
Lady Red Devil Jamie
Wirries won the girl's diving
with a 251.10 total, followed
by Lake Placid's Shannon
Cumming's 246.70 and
Sebring's Niki Golde's
234.20.
The swimming part of the
meet commenced early
Saturday morn with the 200
Medley Relay's, with Sebring
touching in first for both the
girls and boys.
Katie Bullard, Paige Giller,


Megan Wolfe and Kristi
Livingston swam a time of
2:05.01 to top Bishop Verot
(Jillian Palmer, Danyelle
Russell, Kriten Wasko and
Kristen Goodsen) and Lake
Placid (Tammi Beach, Rachel
Cope, Renee Michaud and
Marbelly Creel).
The Blue Streak team of
Mathew Vickers, Bryan
Kirsch, Brian Miller and
Joshua Heflin finished the
boy's event in 1:52.28 to take
first ahead of North Port
(Jesse Martin, Ryan Batties,
John Vacca and Shane
Dougherty) and Lake Placid
(Matthew Padovano, Edwin
Velazquez, Kevin Smit and
Robert Greene).
Bishop Verot's Jackie
McCaw and Erin Black took
the top two spots in the girl's
200 Free, with Beach and
Sebring's Samantha Spiegel
taking third and fourth.
Derek Krell, also a Bishop
Verot Viking, won the boy's
side of the event, topping


North Port's Shane Dougherty
and Lake Placid's Dylan
Weber-Callahand.
The Vikings continued their
winning ways with McKenzie
Cassidy and Kristen Wasko
finishing first and second in
the Girl's 200 IM, with Lady
Dragon Cope taking third.
Viking Rich McCaw won
the boy's side ahead of Batties
of North Port and Smit of
Lake Placid.
Stephanie Peacock and
Russell kept the Bishop Verot
winning streak going in the 50
Free, taking the top two spots
ahead of Sebring's
Livingston.
Kyle Ficker won the boy's
event for the Vikings with
Tyler Robertson of Hardee in
second and Greene of Lake
Placid taking third.
The girl's 100 Butterfly
went Verot's way again with
Wasko finishing ahead of
Lady Dragon Creel and North
Port's Cathy Santinves.
Viking McCaw kept up the


winning in the boy's event,
topping Joshua Ric'kett of
Hardee and Vacca of North
Port.
It was back to taking first
and second for Bishop Verot
in the girl's 100 Free, with
Black and Palmer turning the
feat, with Lake Placid's
Beach taking a close third,
less than one-half second
behind Palmer.
The Vikings claimed just
one top spot in the boy's 100
Free, that being Ficker, fol-
lowed by Hardee's Tyler
Robertson and North Port's
Dougherty.
Bishop Verot, as if this was
something new, won the girl's
500 Free with McCaw's
5:19.11 keeping her slightly
ahead of Lady Blue Streak
Wolfe's 5:22.59.
It was another Viking,
Krell, winning the boy's 500,
ahead of Vacca of North Port
and Sebring's Vickers.

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

And the

world makes

sense again

Maybe my self-
enforced silence in hopes
of not jinxing the Cubs,
in fact, did just that.
Perhaps my unspoken,
unwritten words were
loaded, along with the
silent fears, crossed fin-
gers, rabbit's feet and no-
showering until it's over
pile of cosmic baseball
karma and proved to be
that one last bit of added
pressure which made it
just too much for the
team to bare.
*The invisible straw that
broke the camel's back,
or in this case, the invisi-
ble neck-tie that was
pulled a bit too tight, cre-
ating the choke-job we
saw.
No jinxes or curses this
time around nothing
even resembling that,
unless Manny Ramirez
did some sort of voodoo
chant with chicken-bone
prayers and a toast to
Jobu prior to the series
starting.
No, it was just a matter
of a starting pitcher -
who predicted before the
season that the team
would win it all need-
ing a pair of Depends
when he had his big
chance.
It was fielders with alli-
gator arms and fear-frozen
fingers opening the door
for a Dodger merry-go-
round-the-bases.
It was an offense which
led the league in runs for
the season suddenly hav-
ing no idea what they
were doing.
With bases empty, hits
were plenty but with
runners on, swings were
stiffened with posterior
puckers and the home-
town fans were out-of-
luckers.
Our number three hitter
bats .545 for the all-too-
short series.
The fact that he had no
RBI pretty much tells you
why it ended so soon.
Because our lead-off
hitter looks at strikes and
swings at balls.
Of the six runs Chicago
scored in the three games,
four were knocked in by
our supersub, Mark
DeRosa, who has played
six positions this year.
One was batted in by a
platooning center fielder
they picked up after he'd
been released by the
Padres, and the other by a
pinch-hitter.
It was frustrating, sure,
disheartening after such a
promising season, of
course.
But you know, once our
'staff ace' began walking
batters at an alarming rate
in the first game, I knew
he was in trouble.
And once his wildness
caught up with him, I got
that familiar feeling of,
'this ain't the year.'
I can at least laugh a
bit now, settle in for the
winter and think back to
all those teams I watched
growing up.
This team turned out to
be no different, though
they got our hopes up a
bit more than in the past.
Because after all, what
we just saw that is Cubs
baseball.
