Local candidates square off in spirited debate


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.coin
SEBRING The Highlands
County Homeowners Association
gave voters another chance to meet
and question all eight of the local can-
didates for the upcoming elections
during their regular meeting Monday
morning.
The candidates provided the enter-
tainment.
Democrat incumbent Susan Benton,
who is seeking a second term as sher-
iff, and Republican challenger Ron


Grimming, former deputy director of
the Illinois State Police and a director
of the Florida Highway Patrol, each
stressed their opinions about the con-
struction of a new sheriff's law
enforcement building, crime rates and
trends, and how to store evidence.
"I have to tell you that the building
is absolutely necessary. (The current
sheriff's building) does not meet ADA
requirements and is too small for our
vital needs such as crime labs and
communications," said Benton.
"But the decision is up to the coun-


ty commissioners. They seem to think
that it is the best time to build and that
we can get the best costs for construc-
tion right now."
She also said that the lion's share of
the cost would be funded by the enter-
prise sales tax over the next 30 years.
"It is not necessary, it is not critical,
-and it will not make our county any
safer," said Grimming in rebuttal.
"The new building is way over-
built, it is too costly, and in these eco-

William Doane, with his with Rosemarie in the background, reminisces about the past. For,
example, he told a story of a time he was guiding an older man' with a tail and burly oompan-
ion. They set out at 4 a.m. to hunt duck from Lake Okeechobee. At one point the tall man
stood up in the boat, and a teal dove out of the sky at him, hitting him in the chest and
knocking him into the water. It was only when the older man laughed that Doane saw he was
retired President Dwight David Eisenhower.

One lucky sailor tells his story


Sebring man survived
torpedo attack, 16 days in
life raft in World War II
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING -William Doane is walking his-
tory. But it is a history that would have been
cut short if not for courage and a lot of luck
during World War JI.
The story of his childhood reads like a
novel. For much of his youth he lived on a
houseboat on the Miami River, back in the day
when the water was so clear he could see the
bottom. He spent time in Bayfront Park in
Miami, fishing off the sea wall and eating
coconuts and bananas he picked himself.
As idyllic as that sounds, his mother was a
careless parent and he hadn't yet met his
father.
When he was 12, for example, he was sent
to the movies and returned home to find his
mother had moved to North Carolina.
There were people who reached out to him,
one being Edward Leedskalin, the man who


single-handedly built the Coral Castle in Coral
Gables, still a major tourist attraction.
Leedskalin carved the blocks of stone by
hand, "Like he was slicing cheese," making
furniture out of them as well as the building.
"He helped me in lots of ways," Doane said.
It was when he joined the Navy that his
story became and adventure.

Joining the war
Just before Pearl Harbor, after getting his
mother to give him permission, he enlisted at
16 in the Navy where he was trained as a gun-'
ner. He was assigned to the U.S. Naval Armed
Guard, units that served on merchant ships to
provide protection in case of attack.
After training, his first posting was to the
S.S. Scapa Flow, a freighter that had been
built in 1914.
It wasn't yet a year after Pearl Harbor and
the Navy and merchant marine were scram-
bling to find anything that would float. The
S.S. Scapa Flow did, but barely.
The ship was used to transport war material

Mahoney caught


in sexual scandal


Accused of

CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Democratic
U.S. Rep. Tim Mahoney, fac-
ing accusations he paid a for-
mer aide to keep her quiet
about their affair, admitted
Tuesday he caused "embar-
rassment and heartache" to
his family but denied doing
anything illegal.
According to Leslie
Pollner, communications
director for Mahoney, the
congressman, 52, accompa-
nied by his wife Terry, had a
small meeting Tuesday
morning in Palm Beach
Gardens with reporters to
address the subject of his
reported affair with a staff
member.
He issued the following
statement at that time:
"I would have come for-
ward earlier but making sure
my family is OK is far more
important than any political


career. I have not violated
my oath of office, nor have I
violated any laws, and I con-
sider this to be a private mat-
ter.
"I take full responsibility
for my actions and the pain I
have caused my wife Terry
and my daughter Bailey. No
marriage is perfect, but our
private life is our private life,
and I am sorry that these
allegations have caused
embarrassment and
heartache.
"I have requested that the"
House Ethics Committee
investigate the false allega-
tions that have been repeated
in the press. I want to be
clear that I have not misused
campaign funds and I'm con-
fident that when all the facts
come to light, I will be
cleared of any wrongdoing.

District know that I am a

AP Council pushes

for county-wide

airport zoning
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@ newssun.com
AVON PARK -The Avon Park City
Council decided to "push" the airport zoning
issue along a bit when it voted 4-1 Monday
night to send a letter to Highland County
Administrator Michael Wright inviting the
county to form a tri-lateral Airport Zoning
Commission.
Councilman Al Hinson voted no.
"We need to push this," said Councilman
Joe Wright. "I think moving forward with this
is the right thing to do."
Federal Aviation Administration recommen-
dations stipulate that if the airport and. the sur-
rounding land is controlled by the same entity,
then a zoning ordinance is a requirement.
Since the City of Avon Park owns the air-
port, and most of the surrounding land is in the
unincorporated area of the county, then the

Avon Park's rental


ordinance fails inspection


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK Proposed
changes to the Residential
Rental Property Permit
Ordinance failed an inspec-
tion by the city council
Monday night during its reg-
ular meeting.
The proposed changes
would set a time limit of 60
days for landlords and prop-
erty owners who applied for
a permit to pass inspection.
Currently, a landlord can
apply for a permit, fail the
inspection, but take unlimit-
ed time to make repairs.
According to code
enforcement officer Captain
Donald Simmons, some
landlords applied for a per-
mit over eight months ago
and have not made the nec-
essary repairs, but are still


renting their property.
"We need this amend-
ment," said Simmons.
"Without it, there is a loop-
hole that allows landlords to
apply, pay their $37.50, and
never get an actual permit
because they claim they are
still working on fixing the
violations."
"You are saying that peo-
ple who have applied for the
permit have not complied
with the required repairs to
get a permit, but there is no
time limit on the repairs? Is
that correct?" asked Mayor
Sharon Schuler.
"That is correct,"
answered Simmons.
Councilwoman Brenda
Gray asked what would hap-
pen if the landlords failed to
comply with the proposed
time period.


According to Simmons,
his department could site
those who did not comply
within the 60 days for code
violations.
City Attorney Gerald T.
Buhr stated that the special
magistrate could then pursue
a fine up to $250 day for
non-compliance after the
citations were issued.
Discussion about the pro-
posed changed brought up
more questions than answers
for the council, and the deci-
sion was for Simmons and
city manager Sarah Adelt to
come back with another
draft next council meeting
that had more teeth to it.
"It's not perfect, but we
are working on it," said
Deputy Mayor George Hall
when the council decided to
send it back for reworking.


Boys and Girls club gets more

time to pay for AP lift station


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK The
Avon Park City Council
voted 5-0 to give the Boys
and Girls Club 18 more
months to repay its
$7,885.62 obligation on a
lift station.
The lift station was
installed over a year ago
when the Boys and Girls
Club put in mobile units at
Memorial Field.
The original agreement
was that the lift station
would be paid for within a
year.
"We have met all of our
other obligations, except this
one," said Boys and Girls
Club board chairman Wally
Randall, who approached the
city council \ith the repaN -
ment plan on Monda\ night.
"We just don't have the
money," said Randall.
Randall's repayment plan
was for the Boys and girls
Club to take the total amount


'We have met all of our other
obligations, except for this one. We
just don't have the money.'
WALLY RANDALL
Boys and Girls Club board chairman


and break it into 18 equal
payments of $438.09.
No interest was included
in the pay-back plan.
"We have to treat all utili-
ties customers the same,"
said Gerald T. Buhr, the city
attorney when approached
with the question of what
would happen if the city
could proceed with a pay-
ment plan.
"We could make a conces-
sion because of the non-
profit status of the club, and
gift: the debt to thep Bo% s and
Girls Club,'" added Buhr,
when Avon Park citizen
Delores Blackman asked the
council if it could forgive
the debt.
Although she voted to


approve the repayment plan,
Mayor Sharon Schuler
raised questions of timeli-
ness and of ability to repay
the debt.
"You have already had
over a year to pay, and that
was plenty of time to get it
taken care of," said Schuler.
"If the lease with the Boys
and Girls Club is up within
the next eight months, are
you obligated to take care of
this debt before then?" asked
Schuler.
.1 think 18 months might-
be too long." she added. .
Randall gave the first
month's check to the city
manager Sarah Adelt after
the council approved the
repayment plan.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


New sheriff's building may not


be popular, but it is needed


On the subject of whether to build a
new sheriff's center for the
Highlands County Sheriff's Office,
we argue in favor.
The existing headquarters, which was
originally built in the 1950s, at a time when
the population was a fraction of what it is
now, and technology both in terms of
forensics and computers was rudimenta-
ry, has long since been outgrown and out of


date.
Part of the problems
involving the storing of evi-
dence, for example, has to do
with a lack of space.
And while there have been
renovations and add-ons
along the way, they were
accomplished piecemeal,
sometimes as temporary
make-do solutions.
As Highlands County
grows, and it will continue to
grow, the sheriff will only
need more space, not less.
Now we agree that the
county should be thinking
long and hard about major
projects such as this one -
times are tough, don't look to
be getting better quickly, and
$11.2 million is a lot of
money.
But despite the shaky econ-
omy, life must go on.
For example, the School
Board of Highlands County
has kept up with an expanding
student population through
the years, as well as anticipat-


Grimming a good
choice for sheriff
Editor:
I was attending a meeting
of the Republican Executive
Committee when Ron
Grimming announced as a
candidate for sheriff. The
scope of his law enforcement
background in conjunction
with his leadership creden-
tials essentially eliminated
any other potential
Republican candidate from
announcing.
As the campaign unfolded,
Ron has focused on the
issues and is specific about
what he will and will not do.
For those of you who are not
familiar with Ron, I encour-
age you to request literature
from Republican
Headquarters, 461 S.
Commerce Ave, opposite the
Courthouse, or phone 402-
5456 to request information.
Some of you may have
already voted by absentee
ballot. Early voting begins
Monday, Oct. 20 and contin-
ues through Saturday, Nov. 1.
If you believe Highlands
County will benefit from a
proven executive law
enforcement professional
who is also a fiscal conserva-
tive, then vote Republican
and choose Ron Grimming
for Sheriff.
Gil Santavenere
Sebring

Benton has kept her
campaign promises
Editor:
I see the Republican candi-
date for sheriff, Ron
Grimming, is still spouting
off about the new sheriff's
building, lost evidence and
leadership of that department.
Mr. Grimming was the direc-
tor of The Florida Highway
Patrol and deputy director of
the Illinois State Police. If
Mr. Grimming was as good at
leadership as he claims to be,
then why did a Florida
Highway Patrol radio dis-
patcher tell the onsite officer
to "take him to a phone
where he can make his own
arrangements."
I was broke down on 1-4
with a motor home and tow-
ing a car. How can Mr.
Grimming claim leadership
expertise when "his" radio
dispatcher displayed such a
lack of common courtesy.


ed the need for more class-
rooms and smaller classes, by
adding two new schools in
just the last two years (the
Kindergarten Learning Center
and Memorial Elementary
School). Building additions
onto Lake Placid Elementary,
Avon Park Middle, Avon Park
and Sebring High schools, .to
point out the most obvious
investments, show that board
members continue to prepare
for the future.
Funding for the new sher-
iff's center will come from
the 1 percent enterprise fund
that comes out of the sales tax
and can only be used for cap-
ital improvements. According
to estimates, building the cen-
ter would require less than 30
percent of the enterprise fund
paid out over 10 years.
The use of sales tax-gener-
ated funding means the cost
of the center will be spread
out among tourists and travel-
ers, not just tax-paying resi-


If Mr. Grimming is so
good with evidence, how and
where would he store 250
confiscated marijuana plants
in the current facility. Good
old common sense will' tell
you the currant facility is
inadequate. Just drive by the
sheriff's facility, the officers
don't even have enough room
to park their privately owned
cars inside the secure parking
lot.
Mr. Grimming tells us that
this new building is not
essential, not critical and will
not make Highlands County
safer. I must admit, he is par-
tially right. The building
won't make us safer, but it
will make for a more conven-
ient work place for our offi-
cers, speed up report writing
and have them back on the
road going after the bad guys
faster.
As for Mr. Grimming's
statement about rising crime
in Highlands County, I have
news for you sir, crime is on
the rise all over the country
according to the latest FBI
report..
Listen closely to Mr.
Grimming and all he is doing
is using scare tactics to get
your vote. You should know
better Mr. Grimming. I have
lived here in Sebring for 16
years and feel just as safe
now as it was back when we
first moved here.
If Mr. Grimming is inter-
ested in being sheriff, start-
ing chain gangs and work
camps, I suggest he move to
Maracopia County, Arizona.
Sheriff Benton told us four
years ago what she wanted to
accomplish as our sheriff and
she kept her word and she
continues to do outstanding
work and we should want her
to continue as our sheriff. I


dents.
We think that is only fair
because it spreads the burden,
and brings everyone into the
equation, including passers-
through who may cause prob-
lems or need services.
Finally, in today's econom-
ic environment, the building
of a major publics work proj-
ect like this one will be an
important source of jobs,
bringing cash into the county
right when we need it.
Which leads to our single
caveat when bidding the
project a real effort should be
made to use local businesses,
and workers, keeping as much
of the money in the county as
possible.
Highlands County would
not be acting alone in approv-
ing a project of this size. In an
effort to respond to the cur-
rent financial crisis, Gov.
Charlie Christ has suggested a
policy of the state investing in
public works projects precise-
ly to stimulate the economy.
Given that the need for a
new building is inevitable,
and investing in one now can
benefit the local economy
quickly, and that we all bene-
fit when public ,safety agen-
cies have the best of modern
equipment, we feel a delay
would only add to the costs in
the long run and complicate
the already difficult job a
sheriff and deputies have to
do. We recommend the county
go ahead.

Difficult times call for
man like Grimming
Editor:
First, I will give the cur-
rent administration the bene-
fit of a doubt, I can overlook
the lost evidence and the
cases that will subsequently
be dropped. A few lucky
criminals will get away. I can
look past the deceit of the
two different reports of the
evidence audit. I will also
look past the verbal abuse
while in uniform of a county
commissioner on a darkened
parking lot. I can also over-
look her other well-docu-
mented explosive temper
episodes, which have been
reported widely.
But, the issues that affect
me are the ones that hit my
pocket. That's where I draw
the line! A 50 percent
increase in the budget in one
term is unacceptable. Giving
$3,000 bonuses to all
employees on my dime is
again, unacceptable. Asking
for $11-plus million more of
my tax dollars to build a new
Taj Mahal office complex to
be followed by a $64 million
jail addition is unacceptable
during these difficult eco-
nomic times. Citizens are
hurting and government must
learn to cut back and do with
less! Even if the new build-
ing were to be built, chances
are the jobs will not stay
local, as only one local com-
pany comes close to fulfilling
the requirements. This spend-
happy sheriff needs to go.

I have heard Ron
Grimming speak and he has
ideas that can save us from
this mess the sheriff created.
He wants to stop the spend-
ing spree by eliminating
unnecessary administrative
positions to put more
deputies on patrol; he wants
to stop the construction of
the $11 million new office
complex and consider less
expensive options; he wants
to lower inmate healthcare
costs that total more than $1
million of expense to taxpay-
ers and he wants to create a
Sheriff Joe style work
camp/barracks facility in
place of a $64 million jail
addition.
In these difficult financial
times we need a sheriff who
will protect taxpayers' inter-
ests and return common
sense to government spend-
ing. My vote goes to Ron
Grimming for sheriff.

Editor:
Lately, a lot of things have
been said and mentioned
about our Highlands County

good, others not so good. We
need to understand that this
is a person elected by the
people, both Democrats,
Republicans and non-party
affiliates. We live in an
imperfect world, but it is the
only one we have, no choices
to be made. It is very diffi-
cult to please everyone and I
can assure you it is impossi-
ble. Our own closest family
members are very difficult to
please; imagine the responsi-
bilities of our sheriff. I am a

What job takes 16
years to complete?
Editor:
Yesterday, I was sent a let-
ter posted on the Sun 'N
Lake Community Web site
written by a Joe Eck of Sun
'N Lake. Mr. Eck's letter was
a plea for Commissioner Guy
Maxcy's re-election to the
county commission. The Eck
letter represented
Commissioner Maxcy's cam-
paign theme of "please, just
four more years." I wonder
how many of your readers
know why another term is so
necessary for Ma.xcy? Do you
think that Eck and others
know that if Maxcy gets 20
years in he becomes eligible
for a retirement benefit? In
other words, he gets paid for
not working and we, the tax-
payers, have to fork over
monthly public funds to him.
Sounds good for Maxcy but
again the taxpayer gets the
shaft.
Mr. Eck also asked readers
to support Maxcy, allow him
to finish a job. Pray tell
please what job does an
elected public officer have
that takes 16 years to finish,
except feathering his own
nest? At the few candidate
forums Maxcy has shown up
for he claims "...he stands on
his record..." Please Mr. Eck
or Commissioner Maxcy, tell
us what record?
I remember that during
Maxcy's first term, he voted
against the Highlands County
state required Growth
Management Plan
(Comprehensive Plan)
because as he put it "...it
wasn't Jesus's way..." That
may have been his thinking,
but it seems that he got an e-
mail from Heaven correcting
it because during his four
terms on the county commis-
sion (16 long years), he has
voted for no less than 400
Comprehensive Plan amend-
ments. Talk about flip-flop-
ping. A plan that's good
today has to be changed
tomorrow, maybe to accom-
modate one of his developer
buddies? Maybe so, then
again maybe Maxcy doesn't
know what he's voting for.
Do remember the meeting at
the Agri-Civic Center when
he adjourned the commission
without passing a necessary
tax ordinance and then had to
have the county attorney
interrupt him and re-open the
meeting so that somebody on
the commission could make
the motion to pass the tax?
Maxcy isn't a "bad" guy, he's
just clueless as to the real
issues facing this county. We

taxpayers just can't afford
another term with him on the
commission so that he can
gain personal benefit from
that term.
Two years ago when I ran
for Avon Park City Council, I
heard time over time about
how dysfunctional and out of
touch the county commission
was. Could it be that with
Carl Cool leaving and
Michael Wright taking over
that people are more confi-
dent in county government?
Think about how changing'
the commission membership
could and would advance us
from the 1970s to the 21st

Truth is what the
voters deserve
Editor:
Integrity is the most
important quality of any
human being to possess,
especially politicians. Trust
of the people is imperative!
As a former mayor and city-
councilman for the city of
Sebring and a member of the
sheriff's Rescue Unit, I know
how important it is to have a
leader that you can trust.
Three out of four of our chil-
dren are in law enforcement:
Major Mark Sauls, Sgt.
Monica Sauls and Agent
Gene Sauls Jr. of I.C.E. We,
the people, expect and
deserve honesty.
I supported and voted for
Susan Benton during the last
election. I had high hopes
that she would have the
vision and integrity to make
the needed changes in the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office. Some of the changes
she has effected have made a


difference: Higher salaries
for the troops, some new
technology, more deputies on
the road. What she did was
what she should have done.
Nothing new or spectacular,
simply what needed to be
done.
Bullying a commissioner,
not coming clean about miss-
ing evidence, smearing the
man she chose to conduct the
inventory and blaming an
expensive new administration
building on the county com-
missioners is unacceptable.
But worst of all is the spin-
ning of every story that
comes out. She always spins
the story to make herself and
her administration look inno-
cent.
Just be truthful! People can
be forgiving but it's too late
now for anymore spinning
from Susan Benton.
I urge you, the people, to
vote for proven integrity.
Vote for Ron Grimming for
sheriff. He'll make the differ-
ence we need.

New blood needed in
the U.S. House
Editor:
Let's get something
straight. The U.S. House of
Representatives has been in
Democratic hands for two
years. The Democrats chair
all committees; rule the roost.
The latest Rasmussen track-
ing poll finds that 9 percent
of the public thinks Congress
is doing a good job. Fifty-
two percent think Congress is
doing a poor job. Among
Democratic voters, 13 per-
cent approve.
Our Congressman, Tim
Mahoney, is part of that
majority. That majority has
failed to face the energy cri-
sis. Failed to act on Iraq.
Failed to fix Social Security.


Failed to improve health
care. Their leadership is
standing still.
And now I read that
Mahoney accepted campaign
contributions from Fannie
Mae and Freddie Mac. We
need new blood in the U.S.
House. My vote will go to
Tom Rooney, who is running
against Mahoney. Rooney has
a Masters degree from
University of Florida, Law
degree from University of
Miami and former West Point
instructor, former prosecutor
and has worked with chil-
dren's services. He's taken a
strong stand against illegal
immigrants, for energy inde-
pendence and for securing
our borders.

National debt is so
unrealistic
Editor:
According to recent news-
paper articles and TV news
reports, we are planning to
spend these amounts of
money: $700,000,000,000
(that's billions) for economic
bailout; $700,000,000,000 for
foreign oil; and
$150,000,000,000 year for
war in Iraq.
By the end of 2008 it is
estimated the Iraq war alone
will have cost the U.S. tax-
payers a whopping
$1,300,000,000,000 (that's
trillion folks).
Pretty soon we are going to
be talking about some real
money.
My buddy Sam makes
minimum wage of $7.50 per

he can do to help. Any sug-
gestions?

McCain's straight
talk has zig-zags
Editor:
It.is painful to state this: I
am sadly disappointed by
Sen. John McCain. He is a


true American hero who's
lost his way. It was outra-
geous that the Christian
Right and the Rev. Pat
Robertson trashed him so
mercilessly in 2000.
That he continued to sup-
port President Bush 90 per-
cent, he was rewarded with
presidential nomination 2008.
It's clear now that his nomi-
nation has been directed from
the White House; his advi-
sors/associates evolve from
there. Now we know why he
went to Alaska last February
(Gov. Palin).
It is just incredulous that
he blames Senator Obama
and Washington for the eco-
nomic crisis we face today.
Doesn't he realize that it was
his Washington, his Wall
Street and CEOs who created
this fiasco? Where was he
when those CEOs during
President Reagan's terms,
outsourced millions of jobs
and used taxpayers' money to
subsidize it? when those
CEOs made millions in profit
and took them offshore to
avoid taxes? It's still happen-
ing! Where was he when 20
million illegals crossed the
borders to take jobs at now
minimum wage and deprived
Americans of them? He
wants to give them amnesty.
And President Bush wants
more foreign workers while
over 600,000 more people
lost their jobs this year.
Cheap labor.
Yet, he and Gov. Palin con-
tinue to distort the truth
about issues. Their "straight
talk" has so many zigzags!
He did want less oversight,
more free enterprise, but not
now! His Washington will
bail out those Wall Street and
CEO officials for over $700
billion. Will Main St. and
those sub-prime mortgages
(who were "guided" into
them) get relieved? Will the
bankers and CEOs be penal-
ized? Do you want four more
years of this?

Local candidates debate


Continued from page 1A
nomic times we need to look
at alternatives instead of con-
struction," Grimming added.
Grimming also stated that
crime is on the increase in
Highlands County, especially
gang-related crimes.
"It is something the next
sheriff will have to address in
the upcoming years, and I
have the experience to deal
with gang-related problems,"
he said.
"Yes, there is an increase in
crime in Highlands County,
but there is also an increase in
crimes around the state," said
Benton. "But what is more
important is that the sheriff's
office has had a 73 percent
increase in arrests for violent
crimes."
Following the sheriff's
debate, candidates for the
clerk of courts took the floor.
Bob Germaine stated that if
elected he would become a
working clerk and eliminate
the position of director of
clerk services, his current
position.
"I would serve both clerk
of courts and director of court
services," he said. "That
would save the county money
right there."
His opponent, Mary
Wilson, began by stressing
the need for audits, and dis-
cussed plans to discover
where these audits could save
the county money.
"Audits make us more effi-
cient and cut out waste. It also
makes us accountable to the
taxpayer," said Wilson.
Wilson ended her speech
by claiming that Germaine
would be "double dipping" if
he was elected.
"He would take his retire-
ment as director of clerk serv-
ices and his paycheck as
clerk. This is something the
legislature is trying to stop
now," said Wilson.
"I worked 37 years for my
retirement pension. I do not
understand what my opponent
is/trying to say. would get
-paid just as match as she
would if elected, and if I am
not elected, I still get my
retirement," said Germaine.
In the county commission
District 3 race, Democrat Jeri
Canale, a county commission-
er from 1994-98, said it was
time to return to "common-
sense government."
"I hate politics," Canale
said in her opening address.
"I think property tax rates
have risen too fast, and that
we need to cut spending and
taxes. I would seek to roll
back the mill rate to the levels
we had in 2004," she added.


Her opponent, former
Sebring councilman and
Republican Jeff Carlson, stat-
ed that he too would seek to
cut government spending.
"We need to seek better
cooperation between the
county and all other govern-
ment offices. If we work
together, growth can be man-
aged and the cost of that
growth can also be managed."
Republican incumbent C.
Guy Maxcy, who is seeking
his fifth consecutive four-year
term as commissioner in
District 5, said he would work
towards making public trans-
portation a reality in
Highlands County.
"It is a service we desper-
ately need," said Maxcy.
"I have some ideas along
those lines, and we have some
good people working on it. I
think I can get it done."
Additionally, Maxcy dis-
cussed the need" to build a
"one-stop center" for seniors
where they could get work
done on all their county
needs, tags, and taxes at one
location.
Finally, Maxcy discussed
his plans to seek tax breaks
for seniors and his desire to
possibly suspend the impact
fees to stimulate home build-
ing.
Maxcy's challenger, Zane
Thomas, fired a salvo across
the Maxcy's bow when he
stated that the commissioner
has not shown up at the last
four candidate forums, and
that cutting impact fees would
put the burden back on all
taxpayers for unneeded
homes.
"I promise lower govern-
ment spending, and I would
seek term limits," said
Thomas, a former Navy com-
mander who is running as an
independent.
"I think we need to stress
job creation in Highlands
County by changing the
model from an economy
based on home building. That
just does not work when the
economy is bad. Right now
we have a two year supply of
homes built already; we need
to create jobs that are not
dependent on swings in real
estate."
Hinting at the kinds of jobs
he would pursue, Thomas
added, "There is no reason
that Highlands County should
not be the distribution hub for
all of South Florida.
"The Sebring airport needs
our assistance in recruiting
business and the use and man-
ufacturing of biofuels should
researched here."

Sebring man tells his war story of survival at sea


Continued from page 1A
to countries in Africa and
return with supplies of man-
ganese ore and raw rubber.
On Nov. 6, the Scapa Flow
left Freetown, Sierra Leone,
headed for Philadelphia via
Trinidad.
Right away, Doane said,
two events both consid-
ered bad luck in sailor lore
- occurred.
First, new coal was acci-
dentally piled onto hot coals
in one of the two boilers,
causing a fire and putting the
boiler temporarily out of
commission. A fire aboard a
ship is considered an omen it
will never make port.
Then the first mate
grabbed a monkey, which
lived on board but was not
beloved by the crew because
it got into everything, and
threw it overboard to its
death. That violated another
maritime superstition, and
was considered another omen
the ship would never make
port.

Sinking
Sure enough, soon after, at
2:30 p.m. on Nov. 14, while
traveling without an escort
and slowly because the one
boiler was down for repair,
the ship was hit by two tor-
pedoes on its port side.
Doane described the blows
coming in quick succession,
the first hitting under the
bridge, the other a little for-
ward of the fire room.


K~h2 7~,I I


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
William Doane, who was a member of the U.S. Navy's
Armed Guard gun crews that served on merchant ships
to protect them. He is pointing to a drawing of the type of
life boat in which he and 26 other survivors spent 16 days
after their freighter was torpedoed out from under them.


The forces blew the bot-
tom of the ship right off and
it sank in 45 seconds. Of the
47 crew members and 13
naval personnel of the Naval
Armed Guard, the ship's cap-
tain, 25 merchant sailors and
six navy gunners were killed
outright, the gunners dying
when the flimsy gun deck, an
afterthought addition, col-
lapsed and trapped them as
the ship sank. A seventh
navy gunner died later in the
lifeboat and was buried at
sea.
Only one 19-foot metal
lifeboat survived the sinking,
the wooden life boats break-
ing apart as they hit the
water. The 27 survivors gath-


ered into the one boat and
were able to scavenge some
extra supplies from life rafts.
The German U-boat that
sank them surfaced and
approached. The captain
apologized for sinking them,
but added that if the tables
were turned they would have
sunk him. He sent over some
medical supplies, took pic-
tures of the survivors and
disappeared, although they
could hear the boat for days
afterward as it surfaced at
night to charge its batteries.
The survivors spent 16
days at sea, some of it in
heavy weather.
Doane described how they
caught flying fish at night,


using a lantern hanging on
the small mast to attract the
fish into jumping into the
sail where they bounced off
and flopped into the boat.
Water was a bigger problem
than food.
Doane at this time was
about 18. He was awarded a :
commendation medal for an
act of heroism when he dove
into the water from the
lifeboat to save the chief
engineer. The back of
Doane's legs had been badly
cut during his escape from
the ship.
The rest of Doane's expe-
riences in the war were far
less dramatic but took him
around the world from Africa
to Central America to the
Pacific and the Philippines,
where his ship was fired
upon.

At peace
His life following the war
has contained adventure.
Learning how to fly, he
became a squadron leader for
the Civil Air Patrol and head-
ed up many search and res-
cue missions. He was a good
enough pilot to take part in
air shows, skydiving and
often flying upside down.
His wife of 62 years,
Rosemarie, was a partner in
the rescue missions.
Retired now, Doane enjoys
woodworking and refurbish-
ing organs, which Rosemarie
plays.


Avon Park council suggests county-wide airport zoning


Continued from page 1A
course of action, not a requirement.
A zoning ordinance would cover
issues like height requirements for utili-
ties and structures within 1,200 feet of
the airport.
Additionally, a zoning ordinance
establishes boundaries and sets require-
ments for what can and cannot be built
in crash zones directly in the path of
landing strips.
C.B. Shirey, the Avon Park Executive
Airport manager, stated during the meet-
ing that the zoning should be standard
for all the airports in the county, but if
the county does not move quickly, then

Mahoney scandal erupts


Continued from page 1A
Congressional District. I have
worked hard and I am pre-
pared to put my faith in the
people and ask for their vote."
At issue is where the
$121,000 allegedly paid to
Patricia Allen, 50, as settle-
ment money after she threat-
ened to sue him for "sexual
harassment" and "intimida-
tion" came from. Mahoney has
denied the money came from
his campaign.
He also reportedly arranged
a two-year, $50,000-per-year
position for her at his cam-
paign's communications firm.
The company, Fletcher
Rowley Chao Riddle INC.,
broke ties with Mahoney
Monday afternoon. Its CEO
Bill Fletcher has said he knew
nothing of the arrangement.
According to politico.com,
the congressman met Allen at


a campaign stop in 2006 and
later arranged for her to work
as a volunteer. She appeared in
a television ad criticizing his
opponent.
Allen has been quoted as
saying Mahoney threatened
her job when she tried to break
off the affair. Staff members at
Mahoney's office have been
quoted as saying she quit of
her own accord.
In any case, the affair was
over by January 2008.
Jack Ritchie, who has been
working on behalf of Mahoney
and points to the congress-
man's success in supporting
Highlands County agriculture
and the Sebring Airport, asks
people to "wait until the Ethics
Committee makes its investi-
gation. We owe that to him."

Information from the Associated
Press was used in this report.


the city should adopt its own ordinance.
"You do not want something built in
the crash zone that would be high in pop-
ulation, for obvious reasons," Shirey
said.
The original county ordinance enacted
in 1977 is still in effect.
Unfortunately, according to a letter
from Highlands County Development
Services Director Jim Polatty, the origi-
nal airport zonin, mjp h- been lost.
Because ot the"'osL map, the airponl
would have to be treated as if it uaj
being zoned for the first time.
But Polatty only recommended that
Avon Park and the county's Planning and


Zoning Commission be on the new
board.
Shirey suggested making the board ',
countywide, including the Sebring
Airport in the process as well.
"We have an ordinance drafted," said -.
Shirey. "But the Airport CRA decided ^
that this should be standard for the whole
county. If the county does not move for-,.
ward with this, we can then use our own ."
,.ordinance.
"But I think it makes sense to include
the Sebring Airport in any cotfnity airport
zoning ordinance."
"We needed to address this issue years
ago," said Deputy Mayor George Hall.

CHALK TALK


Lake Placid Middle School grant
recipients named
LAKE PLACID Two Lake Placid
Middle School teachers have earned for their
classrooms mini grants sponsored by the
Highlands County Education Foundation:
Rashauna S. Portee, a sixth-grade social
studies teacher and Carol Hubbell, an eighth-
grade language arts teacher.
Portee's grant will give students the
opportunity to actively engage in hands-on
learning in her social studies classrooms. In
the context of learning about ancient civi-
lization, students will make bricks. This
activity will deepen the understanding of the
step by step process utilized by ancient civi-
lizations to build cities. The chicken mum-
mification project will engage students in
research to reveal different aspects of the
Egyptian civilization.
Students will also "Wear China." They
will create T-shirts to wear during their
"Taste of China" activity.
Hubbell's grant will provide English lan-
guage learners resources to aid them in the
daily instruction of content area thematic
units. The purchase of the Oxford Picture
Dictionaries, the Monolingual English
Picture Dictionaries, Consumable
Workbooks, and the Teacher's Pack, will
increase vocabulary, build background
knowledge by linking prior knowledge in
their native language through visual repre-
sentations, and ultimately aid students in all
content areas.

Cataract surgery rarely urgent


Cataracts are one of the
more common ocular con-
ditions we see in the opto-
metric profession. Most of
us will develop cataracts as
a natural course of aging
over time, and eventually
need to have them
removed.
A cataract is simply an
opacification of the nor-
mally clear crystalline lens
located directly behind the
iris, or colored part of the
eye. As the opacity
becomes more dense over
time, it hinders the
patient's.ability to see as
well as they once did.
Depending on the type of
cataract that forms, com-
plaints may consist of:
blurred vision (more at dis-
tance than at near), glare
(especially at night with
oncoming headlights or
streetlights), difficulty
reading (due to the sensa-
tion of dimness, or not
having enough light),
reduced color perception,
or may not present with
any complaints at all.
Cataracts result from a
variety of causes. The most
common reason for devel-
oping a cataract is age.
Trauma (ocular or head
contusion), toxic (use of
steroids and other medica-
tions), and intraocular
inflammation can all lead
to cataracts. Radiation,
intraocular tumors, and
degenerative ocular disease
(i.e. retinitis pigmentosa)
are also associated with
cataract development.
Certain systemic diseases
are linked to cataract for-
mation, including: dia-
betes (cataracts often
develop rapidly), hypocal-
cemia, Wilson's disease,
myotonic dystrophy, and
Down's syndrome to name
a few. .; .,
More than-1.7 million


cataract
surgeries
are per-
formed
every year
in the
United
States. A
cataract
Focal does not
have to be
Point "ripe"
Dr. Va/erie before
Molds surgery
takes
place, thanks to modern
surgery techniques. Today,
2.75 mm incisions are the
standard. Sutures are rarely
necessary and recovery
time is rapid.
When a cataract is
removed, a man-made
implant is inserted in its
place in order to improve
the patient's vision.
Fortunately, technology
continues to improve. New
implants are available that
can allow patients to have
distance, intermediate, and
near vision, in many cases
without the use of bifocals.
Only your eye surgeon can
determine if one of these
newer multifocal implants
would be right for you.
Whenever a patient's
vision is not good enough
to accommodate his
lifestyle, cataract surgery is
necessary. Referral to a
cataract surgeon is appro-
priate when the patient's
vision cannot be improved
with a change in glasses.
Cataract surgery may be
performed for reasons
other than to improve visu-
al acuity.
Surgery may be needed
as therapy for ocular dis-
ease (i.e. lens-related glau-
coma) or to manage ocular
disease more effectively
(i.e. monitoring diabetic
retinopathy). A referral
may be made when the


cataract has become so
dense that it precludes a
view of the back of the eye
in a diabetic patient. The
eye doctor has to be able to
see the retina in order to
screen the patient for dia-
betic retinopathy.
In contrast, cataract sur-
gery should be delayed for
a longer period of time in
patients who have macular
degeneration. The visual
outcome may not be as
good as expected since
some of the vision loss
may possibly be due to the
macular degeneration. A
more dramatic improve-
ment will be noticed by the
patient if they can wait for
the cataract to progress to a
more mature level.
If a patient with macular
degeneration chooses not
to wait, they need to under-
stand that cataract removal
may not improve their
vision in the way they
expect. Brightness and
color perception may be
better, but it's impossible
to guarantee improvement
in clarity depending on the
severity of the macular
degeneration.
It is rare in today's age
of medical technology for a
cataract to require urgent
treatment. Those patients
who decline surgical
removal of their cataracts
should be re-examined
every year, or sooner if
there is a noticeable
decline in their vision.

Did these fixtures truly
hang in the countryside
home of a European
aristocrat or do they
merely look the part,
draped in faceted
crystal beads, and
multi-faceted hand
polished teardrops.
Gracefully curved
wrought iron tapered
arms are joined by
straps or wander off
into elegant curls. The
rich Peruvian Bronze
finished completes the
Victorian look.

COMMUNITY BRIEFS


Pioneer Days move
to October this year
LAKE PLACID The
Lake Placid Historical
Society has traditionally held
Pioneer Days in the spring.
However, because of a con-
flict in scheduling that arose
with the preparation for the
FCAT, the activities relating
to field trips to the Depot
Museum for second- and
fourth-grades have been
moved to today and
Thursday. Students are invit-
ed to the museum to view
demonstrations of various
pioneer craft, including
cleaning clothes using a wash
board, sharpening a knife on
a grinding wheel, and churn-
ing butter.
Rounding out the event is a
tour of the Red Caboose and
the actual jail used in the
early days. Visitors are wel-
come during Demonstration
Days. The museum is at the
west end of Park Street.
The crowning of the
Pioneer Man and Pioneer
Woman of the Year has also
been moved to fall. To be eli-
gible for this honor, a person
must have been a resident of
Lake Placid for 50 years,
with time in the military
included in the count.
Honorees this year are
Virginia Lee Crews Dunty,
Pioneer Woman, and Jeff
Worley, Pioneer Man. They
and their families will be
honored at a ceremony at the
museum at 3 p.m. Sunday.
Refreshments will be served.

Musical venues set at

CLUBS & ORGANIZATIONS

Garden Club discusses plans for plant sale


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK The first meeting of
the Avon Park Founders Garden Club
year was held at the home of Rosie
Longanecker. Co-vice presidents Evelyn
Delk and Rosie Longanecker presented
the program agenda for the coming year.
Invited guests were introduced by
President Betty Scott.
A discussion was held concerning the
annual plant sale to be held in March
2009. Anita Helbig and Longanecker will
look into the availability of plants at
local nurseries.
Members brought plants to share and
trade with each other. Among those
plants were a candelabra cactus, a white


orchid tree, Asian jasmine, oyster plant,
curcuma, kalanchoe and a royal poin-
ciana tree. L.A. Delaney brought a
framed display of the Atlas moth and its
pupae for the members to view and
shared information about the moth.
Nicole Barben and Anita Helbig
announced the Yard of the Month recipi-
ent. Mary and Bobby Kirkland, 326
Washington St., were presented with the
September award.
Special guest for the day was Michelle
Tyson. Michelle attended Camp Wekiva
under the sponsorship of the Garden
Club. Michelle told about her experience
at the camp and showed several of the
crafts she made while there. She also


read excerpts from the journal she kept
during her stay. She then presented the
club with a thank you card she made for
them. Michelle was accompanied to the
meeting by her grandmother, Gloria
Tyson.
The next meeting of the Garden Club
will be held Thursday at the home of
Scott, where members will be potting
plants and making bromeliad arrange-
ments to sell at the plant sale.
The club meets on the second
Thursday of the month at 10 a.m. Anyone
interested in becoming a member of the
Garden Club is asked to call 452-1927
for information.

FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS


Sebring
Recreation Club


By Chapman Chamberlin


SEBRING Have you
invited someone to the club
with you? It is up to each of
us to tell about activities, like
line dancing, table tennis,
bridge, shuffleboard and our
famous meals. We even have
a reading room that is seldom
used. What happened to crib-
bage at the club? I have seen
boards so I know that it once
was played, but no signs
today of this game.
Victor Stanford made it
down to watch and to remain
with old friends. Victor is a
pro shuffler who is well
known in the circuit. Bill and
Joyce Kaleita had a very nice
couple from North Dakota
with them, Ty and Veronica
Moran. We had the pleasure
of being beaten by Ty. They
are very quiet and both very
friendly. We hope that they
will stay in Sebring and
become active in the club.
The list of male club mem-
bers that are Florida State
Pros that shuffle at Sebring is
an impressive list: Robert
(Bob) Adams, Bernie
Baumgartner, John Boonen,
John Bushee, Chap
Chamberlin, Harold
Cunningham, Walcott Davis,
Ralph Day, Charles Frey,
James Hundley, Lowell Jones,
George Kisel, Frank Reynen,
Victor Stanford, Ed Straub,
Lawrence Stump, Max Tate,
Gene Wolf and Clarence
Wright. I bet most of this list
has a very active prayer life
besides playing shuffleboard.
At Sebring several players
could make instant pro I
believe if they had the desire
to do so. Many good players
and many that will not even
go near a tournament.
Edna Myatt was in Rouses
Point, N.Y. this summer.
About six miles further north
is Quebec. It is a small world
that we live in and yet it is so
big. I spent summers in


Alburg, Vt. about six miles
across the lake from where
she lived. We had to come to
Sebring to meet and again we
are neighbors with no more
than a half dozen houses
between us. Edna is a very
nice person to talk with but
not so nice to be an opponent
at shuffleboard. Edna has not
tried a tournament yet, but
look out when she does.
Ed Straub is ready for the
next season and with the
return of some, numbers are
picking up. Some mind the
heat and take time from shuf-
fling. The officers and direc-
tors are getting ready for the
first directors meeting. First
club meeting will be Nov. 3.
John Bushee will be ready for
lessons on shuffleboard later
in the season. He will need
help with shuffleboard and all
the tournaments played at
Sebring this year so please
volunteer your services. Disc
polishers and callers are need-
ed for all tournaments if you
do not compete. Court wash-
ing and court set up at each
club event is needed. Tables
and chairs have to be set up.
Coffee made and registration
fees collected. After the tour-
nament all has to be put away.
Let us all make this the best
season the club ever had. Join
us at 333 Pomegranate Ave.
(behind the Sebring Police
Station).

Town & Country
Mobile Home Park
By Janet Day

SEBRING Regardless of
tropical temperatures and
summer rains, it is fall -
October! The calendar says so.
and we have folks returning
from the north so we know
'tis true. Welcome back to
Wende and Hal Johnson who
look just great and said they
had a wonderful summer "but
when they hit 27 knew they
were home." Also Dawn and
Cliff Kalybaba came in this
week. Happy to hear Dawn
had two successful surgeries


over the spring/summer and is
doing well. We also note some
of the Burris family is in and
know the next few weeks will
bring many other residents
back to enjoy our great area.
We also welcome Leona and
Jerome Niedzielski, newcom-
ers to Town and Country.
They have purchased a home
on Town & Country
Boulevard and will be arriv-
ing soon.
We're thankful Gene Clark
is home after spending a few
weeks in Highlands Regional
and Florida Hospital in Lake
Placid. He and Evelyn are
both happy to be home with
their pooches. Best wishes
from your friends and neigh-
bors. It's good to see Dick
Kapp out enjoying life after
his two-week bout with
bronchial pneumonia. And
welcome home to Wende
Hervey who spent a month
traveling/visiting folks in
Maine and along the route.
It's nice to see Larry (and
Claudia) McManus out tour-
ing with their new golf cart.
We're pleased this mode of
travel enables Larry to get out
in the park for some visiting.
We stopped at The Palms
recently to see Marge Bedard.
Marge says she's so thankful
for the care she receives and
just the knowledge she has
her daily provisions. She has
even put on a few pounds; if
you know Marge, you'll say
Amen! She can surely use a
few.
We express gratitude to
park officials for the tree
trimming, which has occurred
over the past few weeks. Ted
has done a lot of work with
the palms to dress them up
also. Thank you to all con-
cerned.
Our first fall Homeowner's
Association meeting will be
held on Monday, Oct. 20, with
refreshments at 9 a.m. at the
clubhouse. Business meeting
starts. promptly at 9:30 a.m.
All HOA members are invited
to attend; anyone new to the


park is encouraged to attend
and consider becoming a part
of the Homeowner's
Association.
A three-member nominat-
ing committee will be select-
ed to present the 2009 slate of
officers at the November
meeting. Voting will be in
December. We've heard so
much about "change" this
fall; perhaps you'd like to
serve in a position on the
HOA board and bring new
ideas and viewpoints. This is
your opportunity!
Several folks are celebrat-
ing October birthdays. If you
see any of them, pass along
your greetings. By the way,
we knew Floyd Cummins cel-
ebrated in September but did-
n't realize it was that big
"80." Congratulations, Floyd
and many more! Best October
wishes to: Bill Lapeer, Jim
Burns, Bill Robinson, Geri
Spangler, Hal Johnson,
Evelyn Clark, Judy Rogers,
Georgine Buswell, Peg Fraim,
Jim Hervey, Larry Trombley,
Joe Susco, Debbie Brown,
Earl Buswell, Bob Hopkins
and Vivian New.
Remember there is still
time to bring items into the
Red Cross office for the fall
garage sale on Saturday, Oct.
25 (from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.)
Call 386-4440 for pickup and
information. Items are needed
and will be appreciated. Also,
there was "talk" at water aer-,
obics this morning of the
ladies possibly going as a
group to the Sweet Adelines
music/fashion show/luncheon
at Highlands Ridge on
Saturday, Oct. 25. If you'd
like to attend, keep an open
ear the next few days.

Streaks tame Wildcats


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

Ah, it's just

a pinkie

I heard the story Tuesday
morning and soon read about
it in USA Today.
Trevor Wikre, an offensive
lineman for Division II Mesa
State College in Grand
Junction, Colorado, voluntar-
ily had his right pinkie
amputated so that he could
finish the season.
Of course, it reminded me
of when Ronnie Lott had a
similar situation.
Having his pinkie crushed
in making a tackle, Lott just
came to the sideline and had
it taped up so he could con-
tinue playing.
Later, when faced with
surgery that would end his
season or having it cut off,
Lott opted for the chop.
I remember a high school
football coach of mine who
went through a similar situa-
tion.
As the story goes, he was
playing in college and had
badly broken a finger.
But with professional
scouts in the stands, there.
was no way he was coming
off the field, so he had it
taped up and continued to
play.
He never got it removed,
but it was badly deformed
and locked in a very awk-
ward looking position.
I guess I can wrap my
mind around comprehending
these choices just not sure
it's something I could do.
Then again, I was once in
a similar situation, though
without the pain.
Playing softball one night
when I lived in Colorado, I
noticed an odd feeling in my
left middle finger.
It didn't hurt, but just felt
weird.
Taking my mitt off, but
with my batting glove still
on, the top section of the fin-
ger seemed to be bending
forward a bit kind of
creepy, but it didn't hurt, so I
kept playing.
I think I even hit a home

Britt Augustine, #2, and Molly Blackman team up in
attempting to block this Hardee shot Tuesday night.
Sebring swept the visiting Wildcats in three straight.


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING The Sebring
Lady Streaks volleyball team
swept the Hardee Lady Cats
25-11, 25-11, 25-21 Tuesday
night at home and possibly
sealed their third-place seed in
the Distinct 10-4A playoffs.
"This should have put us
into a solid third place, but we
need to wait and see how
Palmetto does. We could still
tied with Palmetto," said head
coach Venessa Sinness.
The win against Hardee
puts Sebring at a 8-4 record,
and Palmetto is currently 7-5.
The Lady Streaks dominat-
ed Hardee in the first two
sets, keeping the lead and
never allowing the Lady Cats
to even get close.
In the third set, Sebring had
issues returning the ball consis-
tently, and the bump, set, spike
combination that Sebring has
mastered was not used.
Most of the points scored in


the last set by Sebring were
Hardee mistakes rather than
Sebring's aggressiveness.
"I would love to see the
girls go for the throat and fin-
ish the third set as strong as
the first two, but we seem to
struggle with that intensity,"
said Sinness.
"We struggled a bit that last
set, but that was partially my
fault because I switched them
up some the last two games.
They were eating it up, but it
caused us to struggle to put
them away. They thought it
was cool to play positions that
they normally don't play,"
Sinness added.
Leading the Lady Streaks to
victory were Molly Blackman
and Hannah Schoop, who both
had seven kills.
Schoop would tally four
blocks, slightly edging out
Blackman with three.
Karley Freeland would rack
up four kills, and Britt
Augustine would take three

blocks and add 19 assists.
"I am proud of the way the
girls played, they are in shape
and have played a hard sched-
ule these last few days. Our
conditioning last summer cer-
tainly shows," Sinness said.
The Lady Streaks won't
have to worry about their con-
ditioning anytime soon, how-
ever, as their regular season
schedule is complete and now
just await the district tourna-
ment beginning on Oct. 27 in
Braden River.


Lady Dragons struggle,



but run district table


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID Like a
punch-drunk fighter reeling
from a barrage of blows, the
Lady Green Dragons had to
scrape and claw their way to
victory Tuesday night in
making it a regular season
district sweep with a win
over visiting Mulberry.
Drained from the five-set
match at Sebring the night
before, sapped of their emo-
tional energy from the
riotous atmosphere at the
Sebring gym, Tuesday's
four-match win over the
Panthers wasn't a pretty one.
"It sure wasn't, in fact, it
was so far from pretty I'd
call it downright ugly," head
coach Marilyn Jones said.
"I'd give the team a C for the
night."
Told of her coach's assess-
ment, senior setter Julie
Shrewsbury wasn't so gener-
ous.
"I wouldn't even grade us
that high," she said.
And yet it says something
that even on weary legs they
were able to go 6-0 in
District 10-3A with the win
over Mulberry, whose only
district losses have been to


the Dragons.
Each set was tight
throughout, with Lake Placid
getting three key aces in the
opener from Kayla
Summerfield to open up an
18-18 tie for the 25-19 win.
The second set turned out
just the opposite, as with it
tied at 15, it was the
Panthers who made the push
at the end for a 25-20 win.
The one set where the
Dragons resembled their
three-time district champ
selves was the third.
Although they had to
bring it out of themselves as
the lackluster play had them
down 19-13.
But from there they made
a slow but sure charge back.
After an exchange of
points, with Christina Wells
serving, Lake Placid rolled
off seven straight to gain the
lead 22-20.
Mulberry pawed back to
even things at 24, but the
Dragons eked out the next
two for the 26-24 win.
Again in the fourth set,
Lake Placid found them-
selves looking up at a deficit,
this one at 12-8 before the
pulled together to avoid a


'I'd call it

downright ugly.'

MARILYN JONES
Lake Placid head coach

fifth-game tie-breaker.
Kaneisha Hamilton served
an ace, as did Julie
Shrewsbury and Sierra
Weaver before Tiffany
Bisbey scored three times on
a tip and two kills to get it to
22-18.
The Panthers made one
more push, closing to 22-21,
but the champions pride saw
them through to the next
three points.
"The girls did just enough
to get by," Jones said. "But if
we play like this in the (dis-
trict) tournament, we could
be going home pretty quick."
At least the team will have
some time to rest up, not
playing again until next
week, with home games
Monday against Clewiston
and Thursday against Avon
Park with a date at LaBelle
in between on Tuesday.
Much needed rest, as
Weaver described herself as
"just slop tired" afterward.


Lady Streaks stave off Green Dragons


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING It was a famil-
iar scene in the Sebring gym
Monday night as the county
rivalry continued.
Loud and fervent crowds
backed both the host Blue
Streaks and the visiting Green
Dragons and the action on the
court kept the stands abuzz as
Sebring held off a feisty Lake
Placid effort in a five-set win.
The teams had meet twice
previously this season with
Sebring winning a tough bat-
tle in the Preseason Classic as
well as another five-set
thriller in the Dragon Lair.
And this one played out
much the same, with each set
seeing its' ebbs and flows to
keep things tight throughout.
It was the Lady Dragons
who came out strong in the
opener, gaining an early edge
on a Tiffany Bisbey kill.
The Blue Streaks then
fought back to even things
before Lake Placid went on a
run with a Kaneisha Hamilton
ace and consecutive scores
from Sierra Weaver to get out
to a 15-11 lead.
* But then it was Sebring
putting together a run of its'


own on two Karley Freeland
kills to even things at 19-19
and then finishing off the 25-
20 win.
Things almost played out in
reverse in the second set with
the Streaks getting ahead

a late run.
With Sebring up 14-11,
Lake Placid scored five of the
next six to go up 16-15.
But the green-clad gals
would only muster two more
points in this one as Anna
West contributed a kill and
Freeland and Hannah Shoop
teamed up for a block that put
Sebring up 2-0 with the 25-18
win.
"We played well those first
two games," Blue Streak head
coach Venessa Sinness said.
"We played our game."
But the Dragons, pushing
for a fourth consecutive dis-
trict title, weren't about to
pack it in.
Again Sebring jumped out
in front with an Abigail Bone
kill getting things going.
But after a 5-2 deficit was

Junior Camiel White was
fifth overall individually with

has been a key to the team's
success on the season.
"Our team has played with
a lot of heart this year," she
said.
Freshman Lindsey Lovett

their consistent play.
"Making regionals was one

have worked very hard this
year and deserve to
advance."

his family lost their home and
its entire contents to a fire.

our community.

one who is able to make some
type of contribution, please

cash donation for the pur-
chase of materials, please

Sebring Youth Football.

make a donation directly to
the Jones Family, makes those
checks payable to David
Jones, we will see that he gets
it.

one of the ladies below to
pick up any donation that you
are able to make.

barbecue meals, we will also
sell raffle tickets; five for $5
or $2 each; all proceeds will

214 -5745, Kim at 381-5047
or Kay at 381-3536.


County battle


goes to Streaks


Continued from 1C
Dragons never trailed again
until the fifth set.
The Blue Streaks would
keep the third set close
throughout with the Lake
Placid lead making out at
five, but they weren't able to
overtake them as the Dragons
notched the 25-22 win.
The momentum carried
over into the fourth set as the
ladies of the lake ran out to a
10-2 lead and were able to
keep that distance most of the
way through.
Of course, Sebring would
make its' charge, closing to


within 24-21, but Lake Placid
soon got the final point to
force the tie-breaker.
That one was close early,
but by now the Streaks were
bent on defending their home
court, securing county brag-
ging rights and the Dragons
weren't able to keep up in the
15-9 match-decider.
"I give the girls a lot of
credit for coming back like
they did," head coach
Marilyn Jones said. "But I
think with all the excitement
and adrenaline they had, by
the fifth set they were a little
spent."

Sebring High School
cheerleading coach Carolyn
Shoemaker has been named
to the board of the USA
Federation for Sport
Cheering.
The Blue Streak cheer
team won the first-ever
Florida State Championship
last year, giving Shoemaker
a definite boost, and her
platform has just been raised
again.

"I'm very excited and it is
a great honor," she said.
"I'm not really sure yet what
all will be happening or my
role. We're having our first
meeting in Dallas in
November where I will get a
lot more information.
"I do know that we are
having an international com-
petition at the Wide World of
Sports Complex at Disney in
April with 75-80 teams com-
ing in from different coun-
tries."


Shoemaker is the only
high school coach on the 14-
member board, which
includes college coaches
from the University of
Florida and the University of
Alabama.
"It's really exciting to see
how far cheerleading has
come in the last 25 years,"
Shoemaker said. "And it will
be real interesting to see the
international competition
and see what other countries
bring."

No more "pinkie of death" moves for him


Continued from 1C
run in the game (loved the
thin air of Colorado), but
afterward, I worked up the
nerve to pull the batting
glove off to see what was
going on with my finger.
Sure enough, the top sec-
tion of the finger was bent
forward and I couldn't
straighten it out.
There was no pain, but
jeez it was weird to look at
and unsettling that I couldn't
move it.
At the hospital, I found
out that there are two liga-
ments that attach to the top
of that section of your fin-
ger, and that mine had some-
how torn off which meant
there was nothing there for


me to pull it back, straighten
it with.
There was a surgery that
could have been done, or
else, the route I took, was
just to put it in a splint for
about a week or so and let
them reattach.
Now, I had played the rest
of the game with that top
section of the middle finger
being basically useless, so I
suppose if they'd have said
one option would have been
to cut it off- I could have
gotten on board.
It just would have made
me typing this a little more
difficult, and a certain hand
gesture when frustrated by
some jerk who just cut me
off in traffic wouldn't have


as much impact.
So I guess a missing
pinkie, or part of a pinkie,
wouldn't be so bad.
I mean, what do you real-
ly use it for, except if you're
trying to look fancy when
drinking a glass of wine or
flicking lint out of your
belly button.
I'm sure there's some sort
of "pinkie of death" kung-fu
move that you'd have to put
on the shelf and learn the
"ring-finger of death" or
"thumb of destruction"
move.
And there isn't a "little
piggy" rhyme for your fin-
gers, so it's not as if the lit-
tle piggy still couldn't run
all the way home.


Of course, I'm glad I did-
n't have that decision to
make, because even if I
could see the reasoning, I
like my pinkies just fine and
it just wouldn't be the same.
My hands would be
incomplete without them,
even if they aren't overly
useful.
It's kind of like your toe-
nails.
They don't really serve
any purpose, but without
them, you'd look funny at
the beach.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OFENVIRONMENTAL
PROTECTION NOTICE OF INTENT
TO ISSUE PERMIT
The Department of Environmental Protection
gives notice of its intent to issue a permit to
Wabasso Road Dairy, to be issued to Wabasso
Road Dairy, Inc. The proposed permit authorizes
construction and operation of the waste
management system in accordance with an
approved Operation and Maintenance Plan and
requires an updated Nutrient Management Plan
with 180 days of permit issuance. The permit will
also provide coverage under the National Pollutant
Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), as
delegated to the state by the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency. The dairy is located at 2903
County Road 64 East, Avon Park, Florida 33825.
The intent to issue and application file are
available for public inspection during normal
business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday
through Friday, except legal holidays, at the FDEP
Southeast District Office located at 400 N. Congress
Ave., Suite 200, West Palm Beach, FL 33401.
The Department will issue the permit with the at-
tached conditions unless a timely petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Rodda Statutes, within fourteen days of
receipt of notice. The procedures for petitioning for
a hearing are set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests are affected
by the Departments proposed permitting decision
may petition for an administrative proceeding (hear-
ing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes. The petition must contain the information
set forth below and must be filed (received by the
clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Forida 32399-3000.
Under Rule 62-110.106(4), FloridaAdministrative
Code, a person may request enlargement of the time
for filing a petition foran administrative hearing. The
request must be filed (received by the clerk) in the
Office of General Counsel before the end of the time
period for filing a petition for an administrative
hearing.
Petitions filed by any persons other than those
entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3),
Flodda Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days
of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of
receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first.
Under Section 120.60(3), Rorida Statutes, however,
any person who has asked the Department for
notice of agency action may file a petition within
fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of
the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to
the applicant at the address indicated above at the
time of filing. The failure of any person to file a peti-
tion within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall
constitute a waiver of that person's right to request
an administrative determination (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Rorida Statutes. Any
subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by
another party) will be only at the discretion of the
presidingofficer upon the filing of a motion in
compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Forida
Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on
which the Department's action is based must
contain the following information:
(a) The name, address, and telephone number of
each petitioner; the name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner's representative, if any; the
Department permit identification number and the
county in which the subject matter or activity is
located;
(b) A statement of how and when each petitioner
received notice of the Department action;
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's substan-
tial interests are affected by the Department action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material
fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts that the petitioner con-
tends warrant reversal or modification of the Depart-
ment action;
(f) A concise statement of the ultimate facts al-
leged, as well as the rules and statutes which entitle
the petitioner to relief;, and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the
petitioner, stating precisely the action that the
petitioner wants the Department to take.
Because the administrative hearing process is de-
signed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a
petition means that the Department's final action
may be different from the position taken by it in this
notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be
affected by any such final decision of the
Department have the right to petition to become a
party to the proceeding, in accordance with the
requirements set forth above.
