Tourism


campaign

hits snag

Procedural error
delays next campaign
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING After a misun-
derstanding in procedure and
policy, the Highlands County
Visitor and Convention Bureau
will have to wait a few more
weeks to start its next advertis-
ing campaign.
The two-year budget is in the
$50,000 range.
"For the two years (up for
bid) we were looking to be
under $50,000," said Tourism
Director John Scherlacher. "But
that's on the high side. We
haven't budgeted more than that,
we are looking to be under that."
A total of nine advertising
agencies submitted applications,
scored by members of a market-
ing committee. But the results
were put in front of the county
commissioners before the
Tourist Development Committee
saw the information, which was
out of order.
"Something like this most
likely should go in front of the
main board," said Jack Richie, a
TDC board member. "I was sur-
prised it was even there."
The TDC board is approved
by the commissioners, and while
one member of the TDC board
was on the marketing board, that
did not follow the procedural
rules.
"It was pretty mUch a misun-
derstanding," Scherlacher said.
"When we had a TDC member
on our board I thought that
would suffice."
The next TDC meeting is
scheduled for Nov. 6, and the
proposal will be looked over
then.
"We will bring it back so they
can review the contract, the
scores, and at that time they can
decide if they want to go for-
ward," Scherlacher said.
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart complained of previous
dealings with the winning
agency, stating that the only
member of the TDC on the mar-
keting committee gave it low
marks.
Commissioner Don Bates
noted that everyone else on the
committee scored the winning
agency the highest.

Early voting at the Government Center in Sebring drew a steady stream of voters on Monday and Tuesday, the first two
days it was open.

Opening day of early

voting sets record pace


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.comn
SEBRIING Early voting
began' Monday and already
voters are lining up.
In Sebring, 1,220 voters
turned out Monday, said Dan
Newman, who has been work-
ing the door as a volunteer for
the sheriff's office for four
years.
Up in Avon Park, the
turnout Monday was 446.
In Lake Placid, 502 people
took the time to be among the
first voters in the 2008 elec-
tion.
That means a total of 2,168
voted on Monday alone.
In 2004, a total of 11,385
voted in the 12 days of early
voting.
If the pace set on Monday
holds up, which deputy super-
visor Karen Kenisinger
doubts it will, a total of
26,016 people will have voted
by Election Day.
Even so, Kinsinger said,
Monday's turnout was
unprecedented.


Expanding to fill a growing need


Children's Advocacy
Center to add space
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Back in the late
1990's, an abandoned convenience
store, overrun with roaches and
falling apart, was rescued by the
Children's Services Foundation
and brought back to life.
Completely rebuilt and designed
to be an oasis for abused children,
the Children's Advocacy Center,
which was opened in October of
1998, was ambitious from the
start.
With backers like Kevin Roberts
(former director of Highlands
County Human Resources), Ruth
Handley (former school superin-
tendent) and Doris Gentry (former
county commissioner), the cen-
ter's mission was not just to pro-
tect children, but to do so in the
most advanced way.
Right from the beginning, an
effort was made to bring agencies
and disciplines together to empha-
size teamwork.


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
Children's Advocacy Center executive director Jeff Roth will oversee the
building's expansion project.


By having representatives of all
the agencies involved in child
abuse investigations at a single
site, the adults can minimize the
trauma to a child while coordinat-
ing services and doing away with
duplication of paperwork and
repeated interviews.


The center also was ground-
breaking in the private/public part-
nership that made it possible. The
county maintains the building,
while all the services are subsi-
dized by the foundation.

The votes are broken down
further.,-
According to the daily tally
kept by the board of elections,
786 Republicans voted
Monday; 1,160 Democrats,
and 222 voters were labeled
"others."
Compare those numbers
with the total of registered
voters in Highlands County
- 65,497, of whom 28,574
are Republican, 26,022 are
Democrats, and 10,901 are
listed as others.
Early voting is taking place
between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30
p.m. Monday through
Saturday at three locations: In
Avon Park at the city council
chamber at 123 E. Pine St.; in
Sebring at the Highlands
County Government Center,
600 Commerce Ave.; and at
the Lake Placid Town Hall at
51 Park Drive.
A registered voter will need
a photo ID with a signature,
or a combination of IDs.
Saturday, Nov. 1 is the last
day to vote early.


Sports Complex

forced to reduce

concession fees
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING The effects of the recession
in Florida have made it to the softball dia-
mond.
That may not be so for the World Series in
Tampa, with tickets alone going for thou-
sands apiece, but for the Highlands County
Multi-Sports Complex, tournaments are
growing further apart.
"At the beginning of the year we had
about two a month planned," said Vicki
Pontius, Parks and Recreation director.
Since then half of the tournaments have
been canceled.
"They just don't have the disposable
income ... not enough money for gas, let
alone hotel stays," she said.
The trend started in April, one month
before the concession area was rented out for
the sum of $850 a month.
The bid was set out three separate times,
so when the county secured the successful
bid, players and parents could finally get

SFCC students wade for a grade


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK "Is that
an alligator?"
"No, it's a stick," replied
Corine Burgess to another
inquiry early Tuesday after-
noon while students from
South Florida Community
College's Career Academy
waded for classroom credit at
the edge of Lake Glenada.
"We are studying human
interaction with the environ-
ment," instructor Chet Maxcy
said.
"This gives the students a
chance to spend some time
discovering. It is a good
opportunity to get some of the
students out there who have
never investigated a lake
before."
Burgess and Erin McCarter,
both from the Highlands Soil
and Water Conservation
District, spent time showing
the students in SFCC's
Environmental Sciences class
how to investigate a lake's lit-
toral zone.
A littoral refers to the coast
of an ocean or sea, or to the
banks of a river, lake or estu-
ary, and extends from the high
water mark to shoreline areas
that are permanently sub-
merged.
In the case of Lake
Glenada, Burgess and Maxcy
estimated about 20 feet from
the shore.
Using large and small seine
nets, students walked along
the shoreline in the water and
tried to identify the plants,
small insects, and other lake
creatures.
"That's a female grass

Students Marcus Pegoria and Elizar Domingus use the seine net to gather samples from
Lake Glenda's littoral zone Tuesday morning during SFCC's Career Academy class, while
another student (below) takes a picture with a fish the group caught


shrimp," McCarter explained
to a student holding up a spec-
imen to be identified.
"See the eggs? Grass
shrimp are a good indicator
that this lake's ecosystem is
doing OK," McCarter said.
Students got an opportunity
to see small fish, snails, and
even dragonfly larvae.
"This is our first outdoor
class," Burgess said.
"But we are going to work
on other projects as well as
including removal of exotic
and invasive plants and water
quality testing."

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING For the 39th
year the Rotary Apple Sale
will continue on Thursday,
Nov. 6 at the Lakeshore Mall.
What began as one man's
suggestion for a fundraiser
for his local Rotary club has
continued for 39 years. Gene
Sheck relocated from Clyde,
Ohio to Sebring and suggest-
ed to the Rotary Club of
Sebring that he thought bring-
ing apples to Florida would
be a unique fundraiser.
These apples originally
came from Sheck's own
orchards in Clyde.
In the first few years the
apples came down by a large
box truck and sawhorses were
set up in front of Gilbert's
Drugs on The Circle and peo-
ple came to purchase their
apples.
Now, there are two refrig-
erator semi-trucks bringing
the apples, cider and apple
butter to Lakeshore Mall and
set up with two tents one for
retail and one for pre-orders
for customers.

OktoberFest crowd

surprises organizers


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK A larger
than expected crowd
showed up on Museum
Avenue on Saturday night to
enjoy beer, brats, and polka
music during the first
OktoerFest in Avon Park.
"I estimate we had
between 500 and 750 people
turn out for the event over
the four hours. People
would come and go, so it
was kind of hard to get an
accurate count," said David
Greenslade, executive
director for the Avon Park
Chamber of Commerce.
In cooperation with the
Downtown Community
Revitalization Agency, the
chamber helped to organize
the event to help bring peo-
ple into downtown.
Event goers were treated
to food vendors, including
Beef '0 Brady's famous
wings, LJ's BBQ which did
the brats and sauerkraut, a
few craft booths, a tour of
the Depot Museum, a hoola-
hoop contest and music
under large tents.
"We had over 250 people


come through the Depot
Museum," said Larry
Levey, president of the
Avon Park Historical
Society. "It's the most we
have ever had through here
at one time. It was a banner
day."
"We sold out of brats and
sauerkraut," said Angie
Smith, a food vendor raising
money for youth sports at
the event. "We did not
expect this size of a crowd,
and I know that next year
we will have to triple our
food order."
According to event goer
Pat Collins from Sebring,
the Oktoberfest was good
for Avon Park.
"A lot of us came from
Sebring," Collins said. "We
wanted a chance to have a
relaxing evening and dance.
This is great for this com-
munity."
"We are already planning
for next year," said organiz-
er Wayne McFarland, a
member of the CRA board.
"We expect an even larg-
er crowd next year, and
hopefully can add some
other entertainment."

Move to fall doesn't dampen Pioneer


Demonstration Days in Lake Placid


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID In a
change from the past, the Lake
Placid Historical Society held
its Pioneer Demonstration
Days at the Depot Museum on
Oct. 15-16. The move from a
spring event was necessary to
avoid a conflict with the study
and testing for the Florida
Comprehensive Achievement
Test.
True to tradition, the sec-
ond- and fourth-grade classes
from Lake Placid Elementary
and Lake Country Elementary
schools were invited to the
museum to view re-enactment
of pioneer crafts and to hear
stories of by-gone days. The
initial story of the day was that
of the first bank robbery in
Lake Placid, told at the site of
the robbery, near the mural
depicting the happening. Jean
Parrish, widow of the 10-year-
old hero of the tale, was the
storyteller.
As the children and teachers
left the mural, they walked to
the museum, where they were
met by hostess Joyce Herring,


who guided them to Thelma
Rhoades and Ruth Josie. These
ladies were washing clothes in
old tubs, squeezing the water
out of the garments with a
hand-turned wringer. Among
the clothes was a pair of long
underwear red, of course.
This was a strange looking
item to the youngsters.
Next up, Jay Chase sat on a
bench that held a stone grind-
ing wheel, turned by foot ped-
als attached to the bench.
Chase sharpened a machete, to
the delight of the children.
Going inside the museum, the
classes were entertained by
Hunter Roberts, a young lady
herself and her grandmother,
Betty Ray Roberts, who told
the story of the Lastinger fam-
ily and how they came to the
area in a covered wagon. They
planted the first citrus trees on
the shores of Lake June.
Archeologist Ann Reynolds
then took over and held the
attention of the groups as she
told of the early Indians who
roamed this part of Florida,
showing shards of pottery and


telling about the tools found in
the digs in the area. Dot
Hogan, also a hostess, then
conducted the classes to the
Agent Room, where Alan
Tyson described the use of
some of the many tools found
there.
In the Hoy Room, John
Thomas explained the pre-
cious collection of Green
Dragon yearbooks the museum
has acquired. There are a few
years still missing, but one by
one the set is nearing comple-
tion. Gathering the set was the
idea of Evelyn Hays and is a
great addition to the museum.
Thomas also told the children
about the Crossing Guard,
which was last actually used in
Lake Placid in 1959.
Hungry by this time, the
groups were escorted to the
Memorial Room where
Maxine Kelley was churning
butter. Most children have no
idea how butter is made and
this is a real eye-opener.
Donna Mingus spread some of
the butter on Ritz crackers so
the children could get a taste


of the real thing.
Back outside, Tom Williams
welcomed the classes to the
Caboose. He discussed the
multiple uses of the old rail
car. The high chairs are still
intact in the caboose owned by
the museum, though most of
the equipment for railroad liv-
ing is gone.
Once outside the caboose,
the children met Normal
Bozeman, who talked about
the old jail. They were allowed
to step inside to see whether
they would enjoy spending a
day or so as prisoners. Most
decided they would not.
Finishing the tour, Marge
Krell and Clairce Cannon
served orange juice, provided
by the Citrus Growers of
Highlands County. A school
bus returned the Lake Country
students to their school, while
the Lake Placid Elementary

Museum.


students walked back to theirs.
The board of directors of the
Historical Society would like
to recognize the second-grade
class of Ruthe Mullins, Lake
Placid Elementary, for their
dedication to the museum.
Each year, when they come on
the Demonstration Tour, they


bring along a "pot" of coins
that they have carefully col-
lected during the school year.
This is not a small thing for
them to do and members are
humbled by their concern for
the continuation of the muse-
um.

she has gathered from around the world to childcare
providers attending the conference. To learn more about
how children respond to childcare, she studied daycare cen-
ters in Italy, India, and most recently South Africa. The con-
ference was held Oct. 17 in the SFCC University Center,

TODAY'S EDITORIAL



So far, so good when it comes to voter turnout


Well, we're down coming to the wire the election
wire that is and something wonderful is coming out
of this forever campaign that has grown unfortunately
testy.


Tuesday morning at just 9:45 a.m., the sec-
ond day of early voting, Highlands County's
Government Center was crowded with people
and bustling with activity.
A steady stream of voters flowed through
the door. Most appeared to be older, some
leaned on walkers, or on the arms of younger
companions.
All moved with determination, no one


strolled, each had a clear purpose and
remained focused on that. While there were
smiles, there was almost no talking.
And under the workman-like discipline
there was a uplifting sense of optimism, even
joy. The people were glad to be there, wanted
to be there, and knew whom they'd chosen.
Their goal was the voting booth and they were
enjoying the ride. The energy was upbeat and


electric.
On the second floor landing directly above
the entrance, as if scripted for a movie, was a
class trip of third- and fourth-graders from the
Heartland Christian School. The students
stood in rows, quivering with the effort of con-
trolling themselves. Each held a large sample
ballot, and the children's eyes peeking from
behind them were wide with curiosity.
Whispered questions buzzed between them.
Moving with their teachers they were a tiny
herd, pivoting together.
With the 25 children looking down on the
steadily moving line of voters, the scene was
as perfect a picture of American Democracy as


a Norman Rockwell painting could ever paint.
Even the sounds of shoes striking pavement,
and voices kept down in quiet conversations,
accented the mood, giving it flavor.
It was the kind of moment that causes
goose-bumps and one's hair to stand up on
one's neck.
Dan Newman, a sheriff's deputy at the door,
said it had been steady all morning. This was
the fourth year he stood in the same place, giv-
ing directions when needed. It was the busiest
he had ever seen it for early voting.
"Over 1,200 people turned out Monday," he
said. "It's the best turnout we've had."

TODAY'S LETTERS


It's a story worth
repeating
Editor:
I've got a ballot Henry
Agard Wallace, former vice-
president of the United
States, one-time Secretary of
Agriculture and later
Secretary of Commerce under
-Harry Truman, made his bid
for the presidency in 1948
under the auspices of the
newly organized Progressive
Party. Distressed with
Truman's policy on the
developing Cold War and
Wallace won wide spread
support from many liberals
and left-wingers who felt that
Truman had swung the New
Deal too far to the right. A
crusading fervor almost
unique in modern political
campaigns enveloped the
Wallace movement, erupting
in a spate of election cam-
paign songs, the like of
which had not been seen
since the 19th century. Firing
with equal passion of both
"old parties," the
Progressives song of the
same merry-go-round and
chanted the hymns of a
"Gideon's Army."
Professional songwriters lent
their talents with E.Y. "YIP."
"Harburg," librettist for
Finians Rainbow and author
of the hit song of the
Depression, "Buddy, Can You
Spare A Dime," penning
these lyrics...
"I've got a ballot, a magic
little ballot, I've got a ballot
and it means my life. It
means freedom from want, It
means freedom from fear and
all the dreams we shared with
F.D.R.
The Republicans, they
grieve me; The Democrats
deceive me, But I've a brand
new party; believe me, As we
go rolling up the vote. Roll it
up for Wallace, Roll it up for
Taylor. There is magic in that
ballot when you vo...o-o-o-te.
Happy is the day when the
people get their way. We'll
go rolling up the vote."
The American working
class, "to be very frank" feels
that those running for the
highest office of our nation
are not fit for "any" govern-


ment post. The 2008 election
will determine if we are to
continue to be a sovereign
nation, in control of our bor-
ders and laws.
Billie E. Jewett
Sebring

When nation
becomes weak,
trouble sets in
Editor:
It is my understanding that
British Prime Minister
Gorden Brown visited the
United States and delivered a
speech impudently demand-
ing that we issue a
"Declaration of
Interdependence" submitting
to global governance, calling
on us to repeal our
"Declaration of
Independence."
After fighting a war to be
free from such rule, I hardly
think any of us are willing to
forfeit that freedom. Brown
rejected national sovereignty
telling us to replace it with
global sovereignty and to
accept our global obligation.
He had the utmost praise for
the Kennedy brothers, stating
that brother Ted was one of
the greatest senators in more
than two centuries. Brown's
main argument was that we
must accept new global rules,
which include massive cash
hand-outs and opening U.S.
borders to the world.
This sounds like
Communism with a new
name.
He tried to link this plan
with FDR's New Deal and
JFK's New Frontier. He
brought "Thought Control"
into his speech stating
Americans must learn to
think intercontinentally -
saying we are still interna-
tionalist. He warned us that
his vision of a globalist
future is Irreversible
Transformation. He peddled
the nonsense that the people
of the world subscribe to
these ideals. Part of his plan
is to increase the power of
the United Nations with the
capacity of trained civilian
experts ready to go anywhere
at anytime including military
force. His most deceitful

statement was his claim that
a global society is advancing
democracy across the world.
In his own country, Brown
refused to allow his own peo-
ple to vote on whether or not
they wanted to accept the
European Union. He sent his
foreign secretary to perform
the official treaty signing in
front of the cameras. This
European Union Constitution
is now called "The Treaty of
Labor" and requires all sign-
ers to surrender their sover-
eignty and democracy to
unelected bureaucrats in
Brussels and judges in
Strasburg, takes away the
rights of the people to pass
their own laws and gives the
European Union and tri-
bunals total control over
immigration policy. ...
Globalization is costing the
U.S. taxpayer more than
$10,000 a year in cash and/or
benefits to each immigrant
one-third being illegal
amounting to $36,000 for a
family of four with 37 mil-
lion legal and illegal immi-
grants, the national cost was
more than $346 billion last
year that is twice our fiscal
deficit, a huge burden on
education, healthcare, prison
system, partly responsible for
mortgage foreclosure. They
are costing us many dollars
we can't afford. A few at the


time legal, we could help, but
it is way out of hand and if
continued will destroy our
way of life. When the nation
becomes weak, totalitarian-
ism sets in. A strong defense
deters many temptations.
May God help us to be wise
as serpents and gentle as
doves.
Willie Clyde (Toole) Cloud
Sebring

Americans are
looked at as
being arrogant
Editor:
Somewhere along the line
the people in the White
House decided that we would
make all the rules for people
to live by since we were the
sole super power. Rules of
International law, formerly
observed by virtually all
states, were flaunted or
observed by us at our whim.
Attempts to kill heads of
state of whom we disap-
proved were open and notori-
outs.
Condemning aggression we
nevertheless indulged in
anticipatory incursions,
invading Panama, Granada
and Iraq in contravention of
the law of nations. In other
cases we openly fomented
revolution and furnished
material support to revolu-


tionary groups.
All of this we did because
we knew that we would not
be held to account. ...
Abandoning our earlier
commitment to self determi-
nation by sovereign states,
recognizing their right to a
form a government of their
choosing, we announced a
policy of supporting regime
change, influencing or actual-
ly participating in the over-
throw of governments of
which we did not approve.
When not actually using
force to effect such change
we engaged in economic war-
fare by means of imposing
embargoes and contributing
financially and materially to
internal revolutionary move-
ments. Totalitarian states that
chose to cooperate with us
were exempt from such treat-
ment and enjoyed both eco-
nomic and diplomatic support
from the United States.
Kingdoms like Saudi Arabia
we declare to be our steadfast
friends, never mind the
oppressive aspects of their
regime. Cuba, on the other
hand, is hammered with sanc-
tions for 50 years due to the
political usefulness of a small
group of emigres in Miami.
We urge the establishment
of democracies with broad
participation of its citizens in
their affairs, yet when we
dislike their policies we
withhold recognition. ...
In traveling abroad in the
late 1960s and early 1970s I
was struck by how readily
foreigners who disagreed
with aspects of our govern-
mental policies always held
the American people in high
esteem. Having little difficul-
ty in distinguishing between
individuals and their govern-
ment. Unhappily, several
generations of insensitive,
boorish American tourists
have done much to destroy
this perception. Too often,
American tourists either
uninformed or indifferent to
the customs and manners of
other cultures have acted
poorly abroad, behaving with
a total lack of concern or
sensitivity for the impression
they were creating. The

insults did not go unnoticed!

Now, at the beginning of
the 21st century, many
Americans wonder why we
are not appreciated for all the
good we have achieved, why
we are so roundly disliked in
most parts of the world. A bit
of retrospection would supply

Help with wheelchair
is appreciated
Editor:
I give thanks to God for
the fine young lady that
stopped at Corvette Avenue
and Thunderbird to help me
get my wheelchair loose from
the sand. She did not have to
stop like so many did not do.
She got out of her car and
helped this old man get his
chair loose from the sand. It
goes to show you that there
are some still good ones out
that you do not have to ask
for help they are there as
God's helper.
I do not know her name
but say God bless her! I try
to help everyone I can. Just
to have something to do I put
the newspapers closer to the
door and the same with the
empty garbage cans. It is not
much but I am doing the little
that I can.
Again I say to the Angel
that stopped, God bless her
every day. Love and prayers
to all that love the Lord and
that do what they can to
make life more smiles then
tears.

Children's Advocacy

Center ready to start

expansion project


*


Continued from page 1A
In the 10 years since the
center opened, more than
500 children have been seen
annually in 2007 alone,
954 cases of child abuse'
passed through.
That success has led to its
own difficulty lack of
space.
When the Department of
Children and Families,
which rents space from the
center, recently reached the
end of its lease and was
preparing to renegotiate, it
was seen as an ideal time to
solve several problems.
Space constraints meant that
not every interested party
yet had a presence at the
center, and some agencies
needed more room.
For example, the
Guardian Ad Litem, in an
older building near the
courthouse, was facing the
loss of its offices altogether.
By building an addition at
the Children's Advocacy
Center, the Guardians could
be moved and join the cen-
ter's team.
The addition, which will
be about 7,900 square feet
and one floor, will be added
onto the west side of the
building, at the site of a
small retention pond. A larg-
er retention pond to the
south will be turned into a
parking lot.
When the construction is
complete, the center will
house seven key compo-
nents: two Department of
Children and Families
investigation units for child
abuse and one for elder
abuse, law enforcement-
including the sheriff's
newly created special vic-
tims unit, mental health,
medical resources, the
state's attorney and the
Victim Advocate and
Guardian Ad" Litem.


Sports Complex cuts

concession rental rate


Continued from page 1A
their hands on peanuts and
Cracker Jacks, among other
things.
"I was very happy to get
him ... we want to be able to
provide concessions; (park
patrons) are used to all that,"
Pontius said. "We talked
about running it ourselves,
but due to the economics of
the budget that was not an
option."
Fast forward to October.
Now the concession area
struggles to turn more than a
few dollars profit each night,
Pontius told county commis-
sioners during Tuesday's
meeting.
She suggested the monthly
fee, previously set at $850, be
cut in half not solely to
increase the renter's profit,
but to help him continue the
year-long contract expiring in
May.
"Everything was done on
projections," County
Administrator Michael
Wright said about the initial
fee rate.
The bulk of sales were pro-
jected to come from tourna-


ment weekends, but conces-
sions are now open Tuesday,
Wednesday and Thursday for
league night to make up for
the lost sales.
"That was an optional thing
he did if he wanted to,"
Pontius said.
Commissioners voted
unanimously to lower the
monthly fee to $450.
While the park may not
receive as many out-of-coun-
ty visitors as it did when it
opened, it still bustles with
local activity.
Sebring Youth Football and
the Heartland Soccer Club,
along with 33 local commer-
cial, recreational and church
leagues use the numerous
fields to play during the
week. It may not bring in as
much revenue as anticipated
to offset the cost, but locals
are flocking to the 52-acre
complex in droves.
"Between visitors and the
people that use the facility, I
would say there are a couple
of thousand people a week
that visit that park," Pontius
said.

Not only will the county
save money in the long run
by combining support staff
and using one building
instead of seven, but service
for the victims will be great-
ly increased and simplified,
while follow-through will
be much quicker, said Jeff
Roth, the center's director.
Instead of spending days
trying to get coordinated,
team members can simply
walk down a hall to get
information.
The center is already a
hub of technologies and a
conduit of information, but
with the expansion even
more agencies may be
brought in and existing part-
ners can more readily
exchange computer infor-
mation.
This will also make it eas-
ier to hold offending adults
accountable, and make chil-
dren safer. The larger space
means interrogation rooms
can be built separate from
any part of the building
holding children.
When the work is com-
pleted, the staff at the center
will total 55, instead of the
25 now working there now.
These additional personnel
will not be new hires, but
current staff members trans-
ferred to one place.
One major benefit to tax-
payers, Roth said, is that the
county is loaning the con-
struction funding on a lease
reimbursement plan, mean-
ing as the Department of
Children and Families pays
its rent, the money will be
used to first repay the loan
to the county and then to
make the center self-sus-
taining.
Construction has not yet
begun, but Roth expects
work- to be complete by
November of 2009.

CHALK TALK


APMS FFA hosts


poultry workshop


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Most stu-
dents at Avon Park Middle
School were enjoying the day
off last Friday, however 24
dedicated FFA members
attended a Poultry Science
Workshop in Kellie Duke's ag
classroom.
Avon Park Middle School
FFA invited Cindy Kinard,
president of the American
Poultry and Bantam
Association of Florida, to
come and give instruction on
showing poultry as well as
requirements needed for com-
peting in the State FFA
Poultry Science Contest,
which is held at the
University of Florida in April.
Duke, Avon Park Middle
School FFA advisor, said,
"Having someone as knowl-
edgeable as Cindy come into
our classroom and share her
knowledge is tremendous for
us.
"We feel that we will now
be prepared to show our poul-
try at the state and local fairs

and also compete with the
best at UF this spring."
Avon Park High Senior
Jerry Lee Wright said, "Today
I gained an appreciation for
the poultry industry and how
it gives back to consumers.
Now when I enjoy baked
chicken or Maryland Fried
Chicken, I can appreciate
what processes that the chick-
en went through to make it to
my plate."
Beth Johns, an Avon Park
Middle School student, said,
"The coolest thing was learn-
ing how to properly hold a
chicken and how to pass it."
Curtis Jones agreed with Beth
but added, "I learned how to
tell if a hen has laid eggs
before."
"The most interesting thing
for me today was learning
how eggs develop," said
Taylor Brown, a seventh-
grader at APMS.
Students also learned how
to candle an egg and the part
this plays in the grading of
eggs, how poultry for meat is

FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS


Sebring
Recreation Club
By Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING The Palms
had its apple fest this week-
end. A small group from the
club had lunch with Sukey
Populin, who moved from
Sebring to South Carolina. Ed
and Ada Williams stopped in
to say hi to Sukey while she
was in town.
Line dancing is on the
upbeat as the season moves
along. The number of dancers
is increasing as vacation sea-
son passes. Peter and Margaret
White are the only line dancers
and shufflers at this time that I
know. More of both should try
the other. Line dancing is so
good for you and it is easier
for you to stay in shape than
get in shape.
When you are a club mem-
ber you are participating in
more than one function. We
have many that play table ten-
nis and also shuffle. Card
players shuffle as well as play
cards. And I think that we all
eat, when it comes to meals.
Dean Bennett, Thomas
Bruha, Lowell Jones and
George Kisel have returned
and appear not to have forgot-
ten anything as far as shuf-
fling. Tom did not shuffle but
did get in some good fishing.
Lowell Jones looks like a mil-
lion dollars on the courts. He
did not lose his love for the
game this summer, or his
singing voice either.
Woody's RV Resort has not
had its players at the last few
shuffleboard times. We are
fortunate to have many good
players from Woody's as club
members also. Sebring Grove
could have many players with
us and this may be their year.
All parks should be well repre-
sented in the club so that their
shufflers could compete in the
Highlands County
Tournaments in Sebring and in
Avon Park.
I Strategy is a word that you
will hear often at shuffleboard
courts. The two objectives are


to score as often as possible
and to prevent one's opponent
from scoring whenever possi-
ble. Do not let this statement
get you into trouble with the
game. If you have the first shot
you should not score with it,
because you are left open to
your opponent. You should use
a Tampa or a St. Pete hide with
your first shot. The only time
that you can score when you
shoot and your opponent has a
shot left is if you hide so they
cannot get you. Keep the table
clean and score with your
hammer and you will do well.
You must always score with
your hammer and not chase.
Monday night we were sur-
prised to have Jim and Joan
Mondry back with us. One
very good player said that Joan
carried him twice that night.
Jim said that he was one for
one in the third game and then
beat me blue, so he was two
for one loss
We are so fortunate to have
Betty Rizor and Winnie Wells
shuffle with us. These two are
ladies through and through,
with a smile for all. If you are
close enough to them in a
game you may hear one of
them chuckle. Sebring is so
lucky to have more like them
at the courts at all times.
Ed Straub is waiting for you
to call him with ideas at 386-
0245. John Bushee is in high
gear with everything in place
except those that are going to
help him this season. Help
now and also around the tour-
naments is wanted. More goes
on than most are aware of in
shuffleboard.
We can be found at 333
Pomegranate Ave., in back of
the Sebring Police Station, at
5:30 p.m. Monday, Wednesday
and Saturday.

Union Congregational Church

earns Yard of the Month award


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK The Yard
of the Month Award for
October was presented to a
group of people rather than
an individual. The campus of
Union Congregational
Church was recommended
for the award by one of the
congregation members.
The landscaping on the
property is maintained by a
group of volunteers that was
formed by the Church
Administrator James Bower.
The on-site coordinator Neal
Winter and his crew of
"Jolly Gents" are on the
grounds every Thursday to
mow, trim, edge and other-
wise maintain the property,
including pressure washing


the hardscape materials.
Just as in other venues in
the city, the crew is smaller
in the summer months, with
winter residents, many from
Crystal Lake, returning in
full to lend a hand. The
group also assists those
church members who can no
longer maintain their resi-
dence themselves.
The campus covers a large
area, with a vast variety of
plants placed in separate
bedding' arrangements.
Included in the plant vari-
eties are liriope, Aztec grass,
ixora, plumbago, geraniums,
dusty miller, crotons, nandi-
na, poinsettia and cardboard
plant. Of particular interest
are the large rosemary bush-


Local author speaks

to LP Art League
Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Author Sunny Serafino
has been writing novels for about 10 years.
Her body of work is quite impressive and
includes "Secrets," the winner of a 2005
FSA/National League of American Pen
Women award. She not only knows how to
write interesting novels, she knows how to
teach others to do the same. She enjoys shar-
ing her hard-earned experience with anyone
who wants to put on paper the stories of their
lives.
Serafino stresses that to be successful, you
must write about what you know. Research is
important, but will not conceal the lack of
first-hand knowledge when telling a story in a
field you know nothing about.
Serafino has Toastmaster qualifications and
is in demand as a speaker for civic and church
groups as well as women's clubs and organi-
zations. Her topics are not confined to cre-
ative writing, although that is a strength. She
is also well-versed in women's issues, domes-
tic violence, family history, and current topi-
cal issues.
In Art League business, President Pat
Keesling reminded the group that a Plein Aire
excursion will again be held Saturday, Oct.
25.

During this season's foot-
ball games storylines for
many teams in the spotlight
have evolved from the typi-
cal "who to watch" to
"who's gone down now?"
Chris "Beanie" Wells, start-
ing running back for the
Ohio State University
Buckeyes, recuperated from
a right toe injury. NFL run-
ning back LaDainian
Tomlinson, star of the San
Diego Chargers, also limped
from his team's opening
game with a foot injury,
which he quickly brushed
off as "turf toe." But how
many athletes in fall sports,
like football, take these
types of injuries too lightly?
According to the
American Podiatric Medical
Association (APMA), both
professional and amateur
athletes are at an extremely
high risk for injuring their
lower limbs during play.
Whether performing hairpin
turns on artificial turf or
taking part in a powerful,
high-speed collision with
other players, foot and ankle
injury risks for athletes run
rampant, and participating
in a favorite sport should
always involve playing it
safe.
"Stress fractures of the
foot, ankle sprains and liga-
ment injuries are all, unfor-
tunately, quite common in
popular fall sports such as
football," said Dr. David
Davidson, APMA member
and podiatric medical con-
sultant for the Buffalo Bills
of the NFL. "From main-
taining proper conditioning


Footprints
Dr. Olga Garcia Luepshen
to wearing sport-specific
footwear, athletes can func-
tion at peak performance
much more often when con-
stantly maintaining high
levels of foot care safety."
The following are some
of the most common acute
injuries in fall sports, as
well as treatments and pre-
ventative tips recommended
by the APMA:

Fractures
Fractures occur when a
bone has been broken.
Treatment: Casting, and
sometimes even surgery
performed by a podiatric
surgeon, is required to prop-
erly immobilize fractures
and set breaks. Ten to 12
weeks are usually required
for rehabilitation.
Tips to avoid them: Look
for sport-specific footwear
that contains extra padding
in cleated shoes, which help
prevent stress fractures
(incomplete fractures in
bones that are typically
caused by overuse).

Turf toe
Named for the playing


field on which it.is corn-
mon, turf toe is a painful
hyperextension of the big
toe joint. While competing
on artificial turf is the lead-
ing cause of this condition,
it can also occur on natural
surfaces such as grass.
Treatment: Turf toe treat-
ment usually includes the
"RICE" regimen, which
stands for rest, ice, com-
pression and elevation.
Tips to avoid it: Wearing
a stiffer shoe can prevent
aggravating this injury fur-
ther. Customized foot
orthotics may also be worn
during play to protect
against turf toe.

Sprains
Hard sprinting often leads
to stretched or torn liga-
ments, also known as
sprains. Severe sprains may
also cause ankle swelling,
much like a fracture.
Treatment: A podiatric
physician should see sprains
that don't show improve-
ment in three days. Possible
casting, immobilization and
a rehabilitation regimen
may all be prescribed.
Tips to avoid them: Take
part in proper warm-up
exercises before and after
home workouts, practice
and games. Spend five to 10
minutes stretching, holding
and relaxing muscles.

Dr Olga Garcia Luepschen and
the Gentle Foot Care Center are
located at 2 Ryant Blvd. (on
U.S. 27) in Sebring. Call 314-
9255 ifyou have questions or
would like an appointment

nipped bi
By DAN HOEHNE

SEBRING In the rematch
of their most daunting task
this season, the Lady
Crusaders of Heartland
Christian were game, but
again came up a bit short in a
four-set loss to Moore Haven.
Back on Sept. 15, in the
Terriers muggy, stifling gym,
Heartland played both junior
varsity and varsity matches -
meaning all but the two sen-
iors, Caitlin Cwalinski and
Christie Davis, played both
matches.
And even then, the
Crusaders extended the
Moore Haven varsity to four
sets.


y Terriers
The result was the same
Tuesday night, though the cir-
cumstances not quite as pro-
nounced.
"It's just a lot of the little
things," head coach Shannon
Fassler said. "It's being too
close to the net, it's swinging
into the net, which is good
because at least they're
swinging. But those little
things will add up."
They certainly did early on
as the Lady Terriers showed
quite a bite in piling up 14-5
and then 20-9 leads.
But the Crusaders then
came together, putting on. a
run that closed the gap.

teammate Heather McIntyre coming in a little more than 12
seconds later to help Sebring make it a sweep of the boys
and girls sides of the meet at Lake Placid.

Sebring sweeps CC meet


preparing for district


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID Windy
conditions and a tough
course didn't keep the
Sebring boys from taking
top honors in the cross coun-
try meet held in Lake Placid
Tuesday.
Overall the Sebring boys
dominated the run over
Hardee with a score of 19-44.
Using the meet to train for
districts, Sebring's front
man Connor Bauer made it
look easy with his pack-
leading 16:43 time.
"It is a hard course," said
Bauer after the run. "I know
I could have beat my last
time here of 16:28, but I
don't want to push it right
now and risk an injury com-
ing into districts."
"I feel I am in good shape,
and on the top of my game right
now, so I am just using these
next meets to stay in shape."
"We have a chance as a
team to make the regionals,
everyone is stepping up to
make that happen right now.
If we keep it going I know
we could do well as a team,"
added Bauer.
"Connor was not really
pushing himself," said
Sebring's cross country
coach Jeff Schumaker.
"But he was still way out
in front. Wining or losing is


just not as important right
now. We are working towards
qualifying for regionals, and
I really think we have a
shot," added Schumaker.
Following Bauer was Lake
Placid's Vincente Ramos, who
finished second with a time of
19:39, but unfortunately Lake
Placid did not have enough
runners to run as a team.
"I am getting ready for dis-
tricts, and this was a good
workout for that," said
Rambs. "The wind was tough
today, but I think I am ready
to run my best at districts, but
I am going to spend a little
more time training this week
to get ready. I need to place
in the top 16 to make it to
regionals, and that's what I
am shooting for."
Following close on Ramos'
heels was Murad Ottallah
from Hardee in 19:48.
Rounding out the top five
were Alex Kennedy from
Sebring with a time of 19:53
and fellow Blue Streak
David Ontermaa in 19:56.
For the girls, Maxine
Copley topped out the course
with a 21:38, edging out
teammate Heather McIntyre
who clocked in at 21:51.
"Erica (Resendiz) was out
in front, but I saw her slow
and stop, I made sure she
was ok, and then took the
lead," said Copley.


Resendiz would still fin-
ish a respectable third for
the Lady Dragons with a
time of 22:28.
"This is a hard course, and I
hurt my leg somewhat on the
hills. I didn't do my best today,
but I didn't want to push and
risk an injury right before dis-
trict," said Resendiz.
Lady Dragon Thalia
Espinoza finished fourth with
a time of 23:43, and Sebring's
Caitlyn Moulds finished fifth
with a 24:20 time.
The Sebring girls would
sweep the field with 23
points, followed by Hardee
with 40 and Lake Placid
with 70.
The teams will have just
three more meets to prepare
for those districts which will
be at Lake Park in Tampa
Thursday, Nov. 6.


Junior Dragon Cheerleading Champs


Courtesy photo
The Lake Placid Pop Warner Jr. Peewee cheerleaders have been working really hard
since August to perfect their routine for competition. On Sunday, October 19 the squad
traveled to Estero at the Germaine Arena to compete for the right to move to the regional
competition in Orlando. The junior Dragons won first place in the Heartland division to
stamp their ticket for Orlando on Nov. 28. There, they will be competing with squads
from all Aver the state of Florida. This is a huge deal for the girls. Most of the squad are
born and raised Lake Placid girls, some of whom have never even stayed in a hotel before
this. The cost of the trip for Highlands newest cheer champions is substantial, however
and the squad is seeking donations as a show of support. For any further information on
how you can help them out, call Angel Huergo at 863-441-1448 or 863-763-7337.
Pictured, the Lake Placid 8-11 year-old cheerleading team: Brianna Huergo, Akimiya
Brown, Mary Grace Bates, Leah Moore, Nicole Moore, Hailey West, Cameron Chambers,
Alondra Torres, Jasmine Green, Michelle Candeletta, Kaitlyn Hogan, Ali Griffin, Savannah
Peeples, Taneasha Soto-Calderon, Miranda Maness. Head Coach Angel Huergo,
Assistant Coach- Mauriela Lorenzo.


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

All bets


are off on

the Rays

When the Red Sox made
their improbable comeback
in game five of the American
League Championship
Series, the Boston faithful
breathed a momentary sigh
of relief.
This seemed to signal the
awakening of the defending
champions and it would just
be a matter of time before
they took care of those pesky
Rays.
A win in game six made
that seem the likely outcome,
as maybe the too young, too
inexperienced Tampa Bay
team would finally fall back
to earth, as the experts had
been saying all season.
And even though they
were trailing in game seven,
it was close enough that an
error by Jason Bartlett to get
a runner on could have been
an omen.
But these aren't your
father's Rays.
Well, they really haven't
been around long enough to
say that so maybe, these
aren't your older brother's
Rays.
And they're certainly not
the Cubs, for whom a full-
blown catastrophe would
have followed the Bartlett
error.
Instead, they dug in and
played past it and are now
readying for the opening of
the World Series tonight.
But you know who also
was breathing a sigh of relief
in hopes of the Red Sox
pulling through, and is now
gasping in fear?
Las Vegas.
Apparently, there were
quite a few people that took
a shot betting on the Rays to
win it all prior to the start of
the season.
Kind of like there's always
going to be some at the horse
track that will throw down
two bucks on a 30-1 shot just
for giggles.
But the Rays, according to
an Associated Press story,.
were a 200-1 shot.
200-1!
Meaning, if you threw
$100 down on the Rays in
March, you'd stand to get a
$20,000 payout at the end of
October.
Want to be a millionaire?
You would have had to put
down $5,000 on Tampa to
win, but you'd get the check
from the Royal Palms and
not from Regis.
And since there were
enough people that took a
waiver on the Rays, a Tampa
win could have Vegas paying
out a lot of money.
Which is why the early
lines have Tampa favored, at
less than profitable odds for
the bettor.
You'd have to bet $1.35 to
win $1 if the Rays come out
victorious.
Conversely, a $1 bet on
the Phillies would get you
$1.15.
So, obviously, more bets
will be coming in on
Philadelphia which, if the
Rays win, will help defray
some of the overall payout.
And if the Phillies win, the
potential payout goes way
down, as they were mere 18-
1 shots.
But then again, these
aren't the Cubs, or the Devil

Vegas quivering in fear


Continued from 1C
Rays these are the Tampa
Bay Rays (or the Tampa Ray
Bays as Mike Ditka said
while talking too fast on
"Mike and Mike in the
Morning" the other day).
As unlikely and as great a
story as there could have
been this baseball season.


At this point, with all
they've continued to prove, I
sure wouldn't bet against
them even though Vegas is
hoping for precisely that.
Dan Hoehne is the Sports Editor
of the News-Sun. He can be
reached at daniel.hoehne@news-
sun.com.


Continued from lC
Ellie Arnold served consec-
utive aces and Cwalinski and
Kayla Kaszubowski each had
scoring hits and suddenly it
was 20-15.
But that run was all they'd
be able to muster in the 25-18
opening loss.
Again Heartland fell
behind early in the second set,
but their comeback ability
soon became evident.
Down 18-12, a Cwalinski
kill and Katie Vickers ace
contributed to an 8-1 run that
gained them a 20-19 lead.
From there it was back and
forth, with one-point leads
going both ways until Moore
Haven put two together at the
right time for a 27-25 win.
By now, however, the
Crusaders were clicking.
Kayla Selander served
back-to-back aces to inch
Heartland's lead to 9-6. a
Vickers block made it 11-7.
The Terriers made some runs,
but never pulled even as Vickers
added an ace and Selander a kill
for the 25-20 win.
Which just set the stage for
a tightly fought fourth set
with highlights aplenty.
Early on, Carolyn
Cwalinski dove headlong for a
dig that turned into a point as
it found an empty spot on the
Moore Haven side of the net.
After the Terriers built a
17-12 lead, Davis had perhaps
the point of the night save
for her left-handed kill in the
second set, putting her
ambidexterity on display.
It came in handy again on
this point as her tip attempt
was blocked, but she instinc-
tually shot out her left arm to
connect with the deflection
and send it back over the net
for the score.
Carolyn Cwalinski would
come up with three aces as
Heartland tied things up and
then took brief leads at 18-17
and 20-19.
But Moore Haven had one
more run in them as they sealed
the match with a 25-21 win.

Christie Davis shows a little
left-handed deftness on this
southpaw score in Tuesday's
match with Moore Haven.

"When they play like they
did in the third game, I just
love watching them," Fassler
said. "We just need to do that
more often. Especially next
week."
Which is when they take part
in their district tournament at
City of Life in Kissimmee
Monday at 2:30 p.m.
There, they will face off
with nemesis Victory, a team
that has beaten them twice
during the season.
Regardless of how it turns
out, the season marks a big
turnaround as Fassler has
guided the Crusaders to an
even .500 mark in district play.
And who knows, maybe the
old sports adage of "you don't
usually beat a team three
times in a row" will ring true
once again.
