House destroyed but all survive

HIGHLANDS LAKES -A
two-story, wood frame house
at 2955 W. Shula Road in
Avon Estates was destroyed
in a fire Friday night.
As bad as the loss was it
could have been much worse,
Highlands Lakes Volunteer


Fire Department Chief Earl
Gray said.
In fact, he added, "You
could call this a miracle fire."
That is because a large
propane tank, which had just
been filled that day and at one
point was surrounded by
flames, did not explode, and
no people or animals died


despite the fact the owners
were home at the time and
three cats were trapped in one
of the bedrooms and were
unable to escape.
"The wife was hysterical,"
Gray said, "and kept asking
us to find her pets." As soon

Hospice doesn't mean

a person stops living


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFLEY
Laura Bourland maybe in hospice care but she hasn't let it stop her. For an early celebration of her
102nd birthday she went out to the Sebring International Raceway for a fast spin around the track after
signing a release form (right), of course. When her daughter wondered about the speed, Bourland said,
'Well, there's one thing about it Ill be going as fast as (the driver) is."

SEBRING -This is a story of
living life to the fullest, embrac-
ing new opportunities and simply
having fun.
Laura Bourland was bor in
Mt. Vernon, Ill., in November of
1906.
Theodore Roosevelt was presi-
dent of the United States, the
Panama Canal was under con-
struction, the Chicago White Sox
beat the Cubs in six games to win
the World Series and the San
Francisco earthquake took place
in April.
Things were a good deal qui-

Bourland grew up the youngest

three girls.
Life was hard

other day, and

and she and her
husband began

BOURLAND selves. They had
no telephone or
electricity and Bourland's
youngest, a daughter Jean Reed,
jokes that the dairy cows had run-
ning water, while the family did
not.


They milked their cows by
hand and raised pigs, corn, oats
and soy beans. She did her own
canning.
And while she drove many a
horse and mule, Bourland never
drove a car.
In fact, she said, with a wicked
twinkle in her eye, the fastest she
had ever been was about 85 miles
an hour when she was taken
by ambulance to the hospital after
a heart attack.
"I was sent to St. Louis," she
said. "We went so fast my hus-
band and son, who were follow-
ing us, couldn't keep us in sight."

Illegal dumping of county


property cost taxpayers $113k


Year-old report still not
investigated, includes criminal
allegations
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.corn
SEBRING A full year after a report was sent
through the Clerk of Courts office alleging illegal
dumping and misuse of an estimated $113,000 of
county time and property, nothing has been done.


"It's got to get in line," said Clerk of Courts L.E.
"Luke" Brooker, citing audits for fuel theft, the fol-
low up to the library audit, time sheet monitoring and
cell phone usage. "Right now we are in the middle of
the fuel audit and we anticipate this one will take 30
to 60 days."
The fuel theft audit stemmed from the Fuel Usage
Monitoring Report that was dated June 17, 2008. The
Road and Bridge Misuse/Fill Material Report was
dated Oct. 26, 2007.

Campbell estimates that 40 percent of regis-

Avon Park hosts JROTC drill meet


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
hlrist(olitc'r.tr!l.fIy '',i@ 'newssiun .5o nn
AVON PARK Colonel
William Hutchinson and the
Avon Park High School Air
Force Junior Reserve Officer
Training Corps, led by its
commander, Edwin Rivera,
played host to 18 different
high school's drill and color
guard teams for a regional
competition Saturday. The
marching began at 8 a.m. and
was expected to run to at least
4 p.m.
Because they were the
hosts, Avon Park's teams did
not compete. Both Sebring
High School and Lake Placid
High School did take part.
Lake Placid was the only
U.S. Army affiliated unit, all
the others are part of the Air
Force program.
There were three areas of
competition: Drill teams with
a minimum of 13 members, a
commander and a body of 12;
color guard units with two
flag bearers and two guards;
and an individual drill routine
in which a single person
demonstrates mastery of the
movements.
The teams were judged by
members of the regular Air
Force who came in from

I recently read your won-

decided we weren't going to

as that news came out.
What's crazy is we voted for
him after Mark Foley got in

Washington. We don't
understand what's wrong
with these guys in public

going to be next? I hope
Rooney wins, although I
don't know much about him.
It's a shame that these peo-

have any morals anymore.

I'm wondering how all of
these people who are voting
for Obama, or have voted for
him already, really believe
that he's going to give 95
percent of the American
people tax cuts and this big
billion dollar health plan and
$4,000 discount to children

going to happen, not in the
near future. The country is
broke. Anybody knows that
that watches the news with
this economy. We're in tril-

Nobody is going to get a tax
cut. If anything, the taxes will
have to raise to pay some of

The judges looked for

The competition was ongo-

Sand Hill cranes
make nice citizens
Editor:
Some of the nicest citizens
of Lake Placid are the Sand
Hill cranes, which have made
this area their premier nesting
habitat for thousands of years.
Cousins to the migratory
Sand Hills, which transit from
the Arctic Circle to Central
America, our sub-specie have
settled down to make Central
Florida, Highlands County,
home.
Claiming homestead rights
more ancient than our own,
they stride around my neigh-
borhood with elegant dignity,
digging bugs and stuff out of
my lawn while barely paying
any attention to the comings
and goings of the human kind
with whom they graciously
share the bounty of their land.
After all they were here first.
They are, in a word, beauti-
ful and wonderful; their
courting dance a ballet wor-
thy of note. As parents they
school their young in the art
of grub digging, freeing the
lawns of my subdivision of
all manner of bugs.
While some of my neigh-
bors resort to chemical sprays
on their grass, then thought-
fully leave little signs warn-
ing of the toxicity, (presump-
tively for the cranes to read),
I prefer to defer to my family
group of four who visit my
yard several times a day to do
the gardening. The visits of
these graceful friends always
brings a smile to my face and
I am grateful for their atten-
tions.

Idol fans come from
Hardee for events
Editor:
I wanted to let you know I
love the Heartland Idol series.
I have been attending for five


years. I don't know anyone
singing in the Idol but I drive
from Wauchula for each date.
I love and enjoy watching
the singers. It's seriously
entertaining. I do enjoy the
emcee as well. Love his sense
of humor! (Sorry can't
remember his name).
Just wanted you to know
we are people not from
Highlands County but we do
enjoy the series.

Bass tournament
attendees don't take
care of fish
Editor:
On the morning of
Saturday, Oct. I1, an uniden-
tified bass club or group held
a bass tournament on Lake
Francis. They exhibited some
of the worst unethical conduct
I have ever witnessed at a
tournament.
Their handling of the fish
was nothing less than shock-
ing.
They used a laundry basket
(not necessarily bad) at the
weigh-in to hold the fish and
the fish ended up out of the
water longer than they should
have (this is a bad thing).
One gentleman we observed
did use a wet bag to present
his fish. Good job there.
I did not see how many fish
were caught only two that
were released. If they caught
more than that, they weren't
released.
The worst breech of ethics
was when one of their mem-
bers (after the weigh-in)
tossed the first fish released
in a high arc from the weigh-
in point to a canal, which was
approximately 20 feet from
his position with a resounding
"splat." Shameful. Needless
to say, that fish finally floated
belly up and did not survive.
Any fisherman with a sense
of ethics will not throw, toss,


heave, drop, or kick any fish
back into the water.
I only saw one other fish
released and that fish was
placed in the same canal by
another member of their
group that used much more
care than the first person. As
far as I could tell, that fish
did survive.
Both fish should have been
released out from the boat
ramp rather than the canal,
which would give them their
best chance of survival.
Any group that exhibits
behavior like this one did can
give good clubs a bad reputa-
tion they don't deserve.
Tournaments that are run
properly and have some sense
of ethics can be a good thing
to have in the neighborhood.
If the actions of this group
were out of ignorance, the
tournament director of this
one should take time to learn
the proper procedures of
catch and release before the
next tournament.

So many more friends
than imagined
Editor:
While preparing for my
90th birthday, I had a massive
heart attack and ended up in
Florida Hospital in Orlando. I
have to tell you that I have
never received such great
care.
To begin with I have to
thank our local newspapers,
The Tribune, News-Sun and
Lake Placid Journal for pub-
lishing my letters for the past
28 years.
I never knew I had so many
good friends; they filled my
hospital room with balloons,
flowers, gifts and cards and
also sent me their best wish-
es, lo e and prayers.
My appreciation to Pastor
Joe DeHart of Community


Church of God, who came to
Orlando to pray for me.
Special thanks to Libby
Barner, who is taking such
good care of me at home. And
thanks to Rhonda's
Grooming, who took good
care of my little 17-year-old
dog. I have so many to thank
and I do not want to overlook
any of you. I have faith that I
will recover quickly and be
back in town soon.

Palms is great help
to Meals on Wheels
Editor:
Being I passed out a bou-
quet for the young lady help-
ing me with my wheel chair
in the sand I thought as long
as I passed that I would pass
out another but to a different
place. This one is for The
Palms Health Center that sup-
plies the food for Meals on
Wheels.
It is almost like being back
down on the farm. The food
is out of this world and a
great plenty too. The volun-
teers that deliver the meals
are of the finest people too.
Our health is not the very best
and this deal is a God send.

A 50,000-

word quest
Well, we are now in the
month of November. A time of
great achievement, stress, and
insanity. Hopefully with relief
at the end of the road.
I'm not talking about the
election, though to be honest
the end of this election cycle
can't come soon enough. But
I'm not in a mood to write
about that right now. I'll wait p
until next week to share my
wacky opinions with my read-
ers.
So this week I want to talk
about the other craziness that
comes with November:
National Novel Writing Month,
known as "Nano" by partici-
pants and "beyond craziness" G
by those who live with the par-
ticipants.
If you want to briefly sum
up Nano, it's this: write 50,000
words of a novel in the month
of November. That translates
to 200 pages of double spaced
text. A little bit less than 100
of these columns.
Sounds like a lot. It breaks
down to around seven pages a
day. Still seems a lot to those
who don't do much of writing.
To be honest, it is a bunch
of words. And a bunch of time.
Put it this way: I can type
about 1000 words in about an
hour. This is assuming I'm not
stopped because I can't figure
out what I want to write next
or because I get a sudden urge
to check my email or surf the
Web. Yes, I get distracted by
bright shiny objects, too.
But let's call it 1,000 words
an hour. That means it will
take me 50 hours to achieve
my Nano goal. The month of
November has 720 hours. So
all I have to do is find a spare
50 hours in those 30 days. No
problem, right? ....
If the above sounds a little
bit nutty, welcome to Nano.
You have to be a little crazy to
try something like this. It
means taking time out of your
normal life (or your not-so-
normal life) to toss yourself
onto a blank page and create
something on it.
Part of the attraction of the
thing is just that risk.
Throwing yourself into creativ-
ity. Deciding not to care if it's
good or not, just getting down
on paper (or on the computer
screen). And some wonderful
stuff can come from that leap.
Maybe you've thought about
writing. But when you think
about it, you put it off to
"someday." You think you'll
do it when the kids grow up, or
you get a little older, or as a
New Year's resolution.
What's wrong with this
November? Check your calen-
dar. "Someday" is not listed on
there. Which means if you
really think you want to write
and you're waiting for some-
day, you may never get around 1
to it.
If writing is a dream for
you, maybe this is time to grab
hold of it. Give it a shot. Even
if you don't hit the 50,000
word mark, you'll still have
more words written at the end
of the month than you had at
the beginning. It's a start.
But maybe writing isn't your
thing. Do you have another
dream? A passion you've want- ,
ed to pursue? And are you
waiting for that mysterious
day, "someday" to go for it?
Why not this November?
Why not give it a shot? Worst
thing is you miss. But at least
you'd have tried.
A dream you don't try for


stays a dream. Try for it, and it
could become something real.
Take a chance. Reach out.
Grab a dream.
And if that dream is writing
a novel, go to www.nanow-
rimo.org and sign up. And start
writing. I'll be right there with
you, looking for those 50
hours.

Friday was largest yet for early voters


i Continued from page 1A

cover the extra time, rather
than scramble to bring new
people on line. "We can do
this because only a few days
fe involved," Campbell
said, adding he didn't want
anyone getting worn out or
falling sick. "Everyone will
be working election day," he
said.
Saturday will be the last
day people may vote early in
Highlands County, although
they may still vote by absen-
tee ballot on Monday by
going in person to the election
office at the Government
Center in Sebring.
On election day itself,
should a large turnout materi-
alize and voting get backed
up, the governor could extend
poll times again, beyond 7
p.m. Tuesday.
If that happens voters
would vote a provisional bal-
lot after 7 p.m. because the
extension could be challenged
and if the challenge was suc-
cessful those votes would not
be counted. By using provi-
sional ballots the canvassing
board would know who voted
before 7 p.m. and who voted
after.
Campbell was forceful
when he said, "nothing is
thrown out and every legal
vote is counted, absentee and
provisional ballots included."


People who voted on a pro-
visional ballot because, for
example, they had no picture
or signature identification
with them when they went to
the polls, have two days after
the election to straighten out
the confusion, which means
there will be some counting
after Nov. 4.
In addition, there is a 10-
day period in which late
absentee ballots may still be
counted after Nov. 4, but then
only for the presidential race,
not the state or local races.
Every county has a can-
vassing board made up of
three members the supervi-
sor of elections, the chairman
of the county commission,
and the county judge.
Their main task, after over-
seeing the election, is to
examine and determine the
legality of the sealed absentee
and provisional votes. In both
cases the ballots are literally
sealed in envelopes at the
time of the vote and are not
opened until the vote has been
deemed legal. This is why the
canvassing board is made up
of an odd number of members
so there are no ties.
What everyone at the elec-
tion office dreads is any race
ending in a result with only
one half of one percent differ-
ence in the tallies. That trig-
gers an automatic recount.
For example, say the presi-


dential race produces a clear
winner, but a county commis-
sion race falls within the one
half of one percent only
the county commission race
would be recounted.
When asked who pays for
the cost of elections,
Campbell said the county tax-
payers do, although the feder-
al government does offer
grants to help with the cost of
voter education, poll worker
recruitment and training, and
handicapped access. At the
time of the mandated
upgrades from punch style
voting machines to opti-scan,
the state did provide some
funding.
There has been some indi-
cation the state might help
toward the cost of the extend-
ed voting hours but that mat-
ter is still up in the air and
waiting to be settled,
Campbell said. Should other
counties move forward for
some reimbursement,
Highlands County certainly
will as well, he said.
Friday saw the largest num-
ber of voters yet. A total of
2,113 votes were cast 553
in Avon Park; 1,050 in
Sebring; and 510 in Lake
Placid.
Through Friday that means
7,980 Republican ballots have
been cast, 8,765 Democratic,
and 2,654 Other. Altogether
19,339 people have voted.


Cancer patient gets high speed birthday


Continued from 1A
It was the most fun she'd
had while fighting for her
life.
It proved to be just a
beginning.
With four surviving chil-
dren, 22 grand and step-
grandchildren, and too many
step-great-grandchildren to
count, she has long been
surrounded by a loving fam-
ily who know just what she
wants when holiday or
birthday time comes around
- adventure, preferably
while moving fast.
Bourland has been up in a
hot air balloon, a cherry
picker and a helicopter. She
has a friend who takes her
for occasional trips in his
small plane. One day he
turned to her and told her to
take the controls and fly the
plane, then he took his
hands off the wheel trying
to startle her. She laughed.
One of her step-grandsons
borrowed a Harley-
Davidson with a side car to
give her a ride to her 100th
birthday party.
One of her granddaugh-
ters, who works for a NASA
contractor, arranged for
Bourland to have a special
tour of Cape Canaveral dur-
ing a shuttle launch for that
same birthday. She got to
see the shuttle's bathroom
and where the astronauts
sleep.


Unfortunately, at the two-
minute point in the count-
down, bad weather scrubbed
the launch.
Then came this spring,
when Bourland was diag-
nosed with colon cancer.
She entered the hospice pro-
gram and the sorrow was
that her adventuring days
were done.
Except they weren't, as it
turned out.
Bourland discovered that
just because she had a ter-
minal illness and was in
hospice care didn't mean
her life had to come to a
screeching halt. In fact, her
caregivers with hospice
were anxious to continue
making her dreams come
true.
So when she mentioned to
Cecil Kent, her hospice
chaplain, that she wanted to
ride in a race car his imme-
diate response was, "I think
we can do something about
that."
He promptly called Steve
Kearney, the chaplain for
Motorsports Ministries, who
made the arrangements.
Which is how, one sunny
Saturday morning in
October Bourland was out
at the Sebring International
Raceway with her youngest
daughter and eldest son,
leaning forward in her
wheelchair excitedly wait-
ing a 100 mph spin around
the track.


At the last second adjust-
ments had to be made.
Bourland, who is both frail
and has already broken her
hip once, couldn't get into
the passenger seat because
she couldn't crawl over the
support bars bolted to its
side. The pacer car was -
brought around instead and
Jack Ragaglia took,her
through the turns as fast as
he could. While they didn't
a proach 100 mph, it was
,still f4st enough for the
gravitational forces to pull
her first one .'ay and then
another.
"I liked the curves best,"
she said with a grin after-
wards.
When asked if she has
other adventures in mind,
Bourland quickly said she
hopes to take a train trip
next, maybe to Miami and
back. Then she paused a
moment, "Well," she
drawled, "I might think of
another (adventure)."
Kent explained moments
like this were exactly what
hospice is all about.
He told of a man in hos-
pice care who only wanted
to go fishing one last time.
Arrangements were made to
take him deep sea fishing in
the Gulf where he caught
three grouper. He died about
a week later, but his family
said they hadn't seen him as
happy in three years.

Fire destroys Avon Estates home on Friday


Continued from page 1A
as the house could be approached safe-
ly, Gray took his flashlight and started
to look in windows. Just as he was
thinking there was no way anything
could have survived, the beam of his
light reflected off a set of cat eyes, and
there they were, all three alive and well,
even one that is about 18 years old.
"It was a real tough fire," Gray said,
the house being made of.wood. Sun 'N
Lake,.West Sebring and Avon Park fire
deartiments wd4' also called in to help.
It was a dangerous fire to fight as
well, because water and debris on the
floors made it difficult to find safe foot-


ing, hiding hazards like holes.
The heat of the fire remained in the
upper story close to the point of origin
so the fire consumed the roof except for
a few rafters. The damage to the first
floor was mainly a result of flaming
pieces falling to set fire to furniture and
other flammables. The walls survived
standing, but the house is considered a
total loss. The couple lost almost every-
thing.
The homeowners, whose names were
not available Saturday, hJ ,recently4ad
a propane fireplace installed. When
they lit it Friday night for the first time
they immediately thought something


was wrong and shut it off, but a few
minutes later it began to smell smoke.
SThe fire department was called at
7:37 p.m. and was still dousing flames
going on midnight. It did not leave the
scene until 5:30 a.m.
Gray said he was very proud of how
his crew, and the other fire departments,
attacked the dangerous situation, bring-
ing it under control without injuries to
anyone.
The family has made arrangements fo
stay with friends.

Sebring chamber offers Results


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Every successful indi-
vidual or company should be able to
answer one question: "What is the pri-
mary cause of my results?" This question
and its answer can shift your growth
momentum and that of your organiza-
tion.
Would you like to understand what
stops you from achieving the results you
desire and how to overcome it?
Would you like to understand why
you are not doing the things you know
how to do which could increase your
level of success?
Would you like to know how you
can double, triple your income without


working any harder?
The Greater Sebring Chamber of
Commerce invites the public to join them
from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Friday,
Nov. 14 at Inn on the Lakes for an eye-
opening workshop conducted by Steve
and Jeanny Campbell.
Steve and Jeanny Campbell are busi-
ness partners of the best selling author,
Bob Proctor of "The Secret" the Law of
Attraction. Together they are on a mis-
sion to share and change the lives of mil-
lions of people around the world by giv-
ing them the awareness of what's needed
to have a happy, healthy and more abun-
dant life.
"Because of today's economy, many


business owners, employees, commis-
sioned agents, are operating in fear.
There's an uncertainty of where their
future lies. If they are setting goals at all,
these goals are based on what they "think
they can do" rather than on what they
really want." said Jeanny.
The Campbells are passionate and
committed to share with others that what
the mind truly can accomplish, how to
achieve results they desire and how
everyone has unlimited potential once
they understand and apply certain princi-
ples.

Many ways to cut energy expenses


We've all felt first-hand
the painful impact that
record oil prices have had
on home heating and driv-
ing expenses this winter.
You've also likely seen
price hikes on just about
everything else as fuel-relat-
ed shipping and manufactur-
ing cost increases get passed
along to consumers.
Although you may not be
able to personally influence
the global supply and cost
of oil, there are many steps
you can take to lessen your
own home energy expendi-
tures. For example:
+ Turn down the heat.
You can trim your heating
bill by 3 to 5 percent for
every degree you lower your
thermostat in the winter (or
raise it in summer). Try
lowering it further when
you go to bed for even big-
ger savings.
Insulate your home.
Up to 30 percent of heated
or cooled air can be lost


through
leaks, so
add

and other wall, floor and
ceiling openings. Consult a
contractor about insulating
your attic, exterior walls,
floors and crawl spaces.
Lower the water tem-
perature. Heating water is
the third-largest home ener-
gy expense, after heating/air
conditioning and electrical
appliances. Try lowering
your water heater tempera-
ture to 120 degrees F or
lower no sense running
scalding tap water 24 hours
a day. Just make sure your


dishwasher's manual says
that's okay. Many hot water
heaters work more efficient-
ly with insulating blankets;
however, be sure not to
cpver the thermostat.
Buy a programmable
thermostat so you can lower
the temperature when you're
not home and heat things up
shortly before you return.
(The reverse works in sum-
mer.)
Use Energy Star prod-
ucts, which consume up to
50 percent less energy and
water than standard models.
Go to www.energystar.gov
for information on finding
local retailers, rebates
offered by Energy Star part-
ners and utilities, federal tax
credits, home improvement
suggestions, and much more.

DBPR sweeps Florida to catch unlicensed contractors


Special to the News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE
Thursday concluded the
Department of Business and
Professional Regulation's
first statewide sweep on unli-
censed contractors.
Investigators hit streets
throughout Florida inspecting
job sites and establishing road
blocks to identify and stop
unlicensed contractors.
Responding to growing
concerns from both the con-
struction industry and general
public, Secretary Charles W.
Drago directed the Division
of Regulation to increase
efforts to protect consumers
from financial and personal
harm and safeguard the liveli-
hood of licensed contractors,
who are often underbid by
unlicensed contractors.
Investigators checked 468
people for their state licenses
and stopped those who were
out of compliance with state
regulations.
The department partnered
with various agencies, includ-
ing local law enforcement,
code enforcement and build-
ing departments, throughout
the state to protect Floridians.
The department's Division of
Regulation executed the
statewide operation in:
Tallahassee, Fort Walton
Beach, Jacksonville,
Gainesville, Orlando, Tampa,
Fort Myers, West Palm Beach,
Margate and Miami.
Investigators issued 17
notices of non-compliance, 17
citations, and 27 notices to
cease and desist. The sweeps
included checking pool, elec-
trical, roofing, and construc-
tion licenses and permits.


"I'd like to congratulate
our investigators for success-
fully coordinating and execut-
ing this sweep. 1 have heard
industry members and con-
sumers asking for help, and
these sweeps are one way of
doing so. There will be many
more of these to come. We
want people who might be
considering unlicensed activi-
ty to be aware of our intensi-
fied efforts," Drago said.
During one sweep, investi-
gators arrived at a dusty
worksite with a number of
people working on the roof of
a home, work that requires a
state license. The investiga-
tors asked workers a series of
questions including: who they
worked for, what they were
doing, and whether they were
licensed. The workers direct-
ed the investigators to the
contractor on site.
Investigators soon learned
that this individual did not
have a license, and as result,
he was issued a citation for
unlicensed activity, with a
fine of $2,500.
Penalties for unlicensed
activity can include a fine of
up to $5,000 per incident.
Persons engaging in unli-
censed activity can be
charged with a first degree
misdemeanor for a first
offense. In addition, any per-
son who acts as an unlicensed
contractor during a governor-
declared state of emergency
commits a third degree felony.
There are steps that con-
sumers can take to help pro-
tect themselves from unli-
censed contractors. When hir-
ing a contractor, take these
measures:


Always ask to see the
state of Florida license.
Note the license number
and verify that the license is
current and in good standing.
To check a license, call (850)
487-1395 or visit
www.MyFloridaLicense.com.
Ask for references and
check each one.


Beware of scams when
individuals ask for all the
money up front or will only
accept cash.
Never pay in cash, espe-
cially a large up-front deposit.
Be cautious of writing
checks made payable to indi-
viduals, especially when deal-
ing with a company.


+ Get everything in writ-
ing, including a detailed
description of the work to be
completed, a completion date
and the total cost.
Do not sign the certifi-
cate of completion until you
are satisfied with the work
done.
The department's mission


is to license efficiently and
regulate fairly. The depart-
ment licenses more than one
million businesses and profes-
sionals ranging from real
estate agents, veterinarians,
and accountants to contractors
and cosmetologists. For more

Seminar at Sebring chamber will help potential home owners


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING With all the buzz
about the economy and credit con-
cerns, now is the perfect time to take
advantage of an educational seminar
on buying a home.
The seminar will be from 6-8 p.m.
Tuesday. Nov. 11, at the Sebring
Chamber of Commerce.
The media has us scared, but


should we be? Whut is going on with
our banks? What is happening with
our housing market?
The seminar will help attendees
understand the current housing mar-
ket and show how to purchase a
home.
It will educate attendees in the
many different avenues and pro-
grams that can be considered when


purchasing a home.
A list of foreclosures and short
sales will also be released.
Aren't you tired of paying rent?
Did you know that if you have a
$500 to $2,000 rent payment per
month, you are throwing away
$6,000 to $24,000 a year. That is a
lot of money. The reality is people
are still buying homes.


Get the answer to the question
"Am I ready to buy a home?"
Understand how your credit score
relates to the home buying process.
Real estate is still one of the great-
est investments you can make. Learn
how to start now by creating a solid
financial foundation for the family.
If nothing else, it will leave all
with a sense of hope and a greater


education on the current real estate
market. The seminar will be con-
ducted by C.S. Edwards Realty Inc.
and sponsored by Debbie
McMullian, Bank of America.
Space is limited; call this toll free
number to reserve a spot at 877-899-
6221, ext: 21 or e-mail educa-
tion@cs edwards.net.

Independent Press Endorses Germaine


It is rare for the Independent Press Ser-
vice to endorse a candidate. We are positive
about the democratic experience. We respect
and salute the many people who put their
names on a ballot and who stood up to put
their ideas and values on the line.
Nonetheless, there is one race about
which we must speak out to our fellow citi-
zens. It is the race for Highlands County Clerk
of the Courts. Unlike the other races, which
feature candidates of equal or near equal quali-
fications, one of the candidates in this race
stands head and shoulders above the other.
That candidate is Bob Germaine.
It is almost impossible to say too much
about Germaine. His 37 years of experience as
a public servant in the Clerk's office alone
make him shine like a diamond.
Here is a man whose time of service has
allowed him to polish his customer service and
co-worker skills even as it allowed him to ac-
cumulate the knowledge and wisdom of every
phase of the Clerk's administration: court oper-
ations oversight, protection of confidential re-
cords, jury management, judicial relations,
budget preparation and management, cost re-
duction, quality control, technology, and train-
ing and cross-training.
As Senior Director for Court Services,
Germaine has managed 42 people and created
an effective, spirited team of customer-ori-
ented clerks.
On a recent, unannounced visit, one of
our insiders observed a clerk taking the time to
carefully enumerate options to a distraught cit-
izen who needed to understand filing proce-
dures. The clerk was patient, explained the
procedures, took time to describe and to offer
packets of information, and went into another
room to find extra information for the citizen.
The courthouse is not always the kind of
place in which a citizen wants to find himself
or herself. So it'is exactly this kind of service -


patient, considerate, nonjudgmental, and
knowledgeable that citizens appreciate. This
kind of service has the stamp of current Clerk
ol Courts, Luke Brooker, and.his senior direc-
tor. Germaine. all over it.
Germaine has excelled as the senior di-
rector. The State of Florida has recognizecdtis
achievements and ranked the Highl a dr'-
County jury system No. 1 out of 66 co i 'i X
for five straight ears. tffective le|
ship. .
But then Germaine runs a tight sh
the way around. He helped, nix a tec
acquisition that oittd,6 i 'ed.h
f5 nds! .His
taxpayers ct ow bu.yth'
for .only $50.
rmnaine'siopponnt is ary W'ilson, an
:.iri the sa rl pervises one
on. We co spiritedness,
but with only four years in t e Clerk's office
and all of them confined to the narrow func-
tion of audits, we feel the Clerk of Courts is
much too far a reach for her at this stage in her
young career.
In the exuberance of her campaign, it ap-
pears that Ms. Wilson has given utterance to
any number of inaccuracies.
For instance, listeners at a public speak-
ing engagement at Reflections on Silver Lake
in Avon Park Oct. 22 report that she said the
only reason Germaine was able to create a sur-
plus was because he raised fees at the court-
house. Of course, this is not true. The State of
Florida sets the fees. Clerks of court around
the state charge what they are told to charge.
Similarly, at a public gathering at the Sun
'N' Lake Community Center Oct. 27, Wilson
declared that the monies in the Clerk's trust
funds come from the State. That is not correct.
The monies are generated locally by the vari-
ous recording and document fees.

Reprinted with permission. Paid for and Approved by the Bob Germaine Campaign.


Ms. Wilson simply does not know
enough about the office she wants to run.
Finally, Ms. Wilson has made much ado
about Germaine's retirement benefits and the
collection of his salary as Clerk of Courts, if
he is elected. The real questions are: What is
the significance of her claim to the taxpayer?
Will the taxpayer pay more if Germaine is
elected instead of Wilson?
The answer, of course, is, "No." Ger-
maine is going to collect his hard-earned re-
tirement benefits whether he is elected or not.
In fact, with the state of the economy being
what it is, we urge him to get his retirement
benefits out of the hands of state government
management and into his own as soon as pos-
sible.
And citizens will pay the same salary for
Clerk of Courts whether they elect Germaine
or his opponent.
There is much more we could say about
Germaine's qualifications, but the bottom line
is that he is a man of integrity who knows how
to treat people with respect and who knows
what it takes to run the Clerk's office on a tight
budget during tough times for taxpayers.
The Independent Press Service heartily
endorses Bob Germaine for Highlands County
Clerk of Courts.

Officer since the network's
inception in 1992, recently
successfully completed an
intensive four-day customer
service seminar, sponsored by
the Ford Motor Company in
Dearborn, Mich.
The exhaustive seminar
discussed introduced dozens
of new initiatives to meet or
exceed customer expectations
at every contact opportunity;
whether a customer was
entering a dealership to shop,
to buy or lease a new or pre-
owned vehicle, or to get their
existing vehicle serviced.
Ford Motor Company exec-
utives interacted with dealers
continuously throughout the
class sessions, highlighting
new initiatives implemented
by Ford to support their deal-
ers. As part of the seminar,
dealers had the opportunity to


tour the assembly plant to
experience for themselves
how quality is built into every
new Ford car and truck.
Attending and completing
this seminar really gives me a
great feeling about being part
of the Ford Motor company
family," Witham said. He
added, "This certification is
going to be instrumental in
bringing a 'wow' customer
service experience to Ford
buyers in Highlands and
Hardee counties for the very
first time. Once fully imple-
mented, we'll certainly roll
similar programs our other
brand locations as well."

Denise Grimsley knows the challenges Floridians face every day obtaining good healthcare for their families. She knows there are many
hard-working families who don't have health insurance and otherswho have insurance but are frustrated by the constant insurance
company runaround. Denise believes that our healthcare system should be as good as our technology.

Denise has been at the forefront of efforts to improve our health:
Cosponsored legislation which for the first time makes insurance companies provide coverage for children
born with autism
Helped pass two new innovative programs to provide low-cost health insurance to Florida families
Passed a provision laying the groundwork for a future trauma center in the Heartland area
Sponsored improvements to the regulation of home health care agencies
Supported the new law allowing pharmacists to give flu shots making them more accessible and
affordable for all Floridians
The challenges that lie ahead require the kind of leadership and innovative thinking for which Denise Grimsley is known.
Denise believes that our healthcare system should be as good as our technology, which is why she is leading the effort to
implement a system of electronic health records which can be shared between hospitals throughout Florida to speed patient care.

I remember the
day I was able to
vote for the first
time. Palms sweat-
ing and butterflies
forming in my stom-
ach informed me
that this great privi-
lege had me a bit
nervous.
For the first time,
I would have a say


in who would become the
next President of the United
States.
I come from a patriotic
family of war time heroes of
the past and present.
Consequently, taking part in
who will govern this great
nation comes naturally.
Getting registered to vote
was high on the priority list
when coming of age. And
this was naturally passed
down to our children.
History makes clear that
most of the rights we have
are more than just rights.
They are privileges. And,
they were won for us at a
cost that we easily forget
with the passing of years.
And yet, some skirt this
responsibility and privilege
with a wave of the hand.
What a precious freedom we
so easily give away.
Being registered to vote is
the first step. Voting in the
primaries comes next. But,
above all we must pray for
discernment. As we listen to
the candidates, we should
also be looking into their
records.
It's easy to blame all of
our ills on the current presi-
dent. But, we can't forget
that the Congress and Senate
wield a lot of power that
often thwarts the good judg-
ment and intentions of the

Christians have a mandate

ference for righteousness in

you are here. You're here to
be salt-seasoning that brings
out the God-flavors of this
earth. If you lose your salti-
ness, how will people taste
godliness?" "...You're here
to be light, bringing out the
God-colors in the world.
God is not a secret to be
kept. We're going public
with this, as public as a city
on a hill...Now that I've put
you on a hilltop, on a light
stand shine!"

Florida scrub jay is county's official bird


Welcome to our roost! Feb.
20, 1990 is the day
Highlands County commis-
sioners declared that the
Florida scrub jay had
received the designation,
"Official Bird of Highlands
County." This came about
after months of lobbying by
interested citizens, homeown-
er groups, garden clubs and
spearheaded by the local
chapter of the Audubon
Society.
July 1, 1987 is also an
important date, because on
that day, the Florida scrub
jay was designated a "threat-
ened species" under the
Federal Endangered Species
Act. The act prohibits harass-
ing, harming, pursuing, hunt-
ing, shooting, wounding,
killing, trapping, capturing,
or collecting listed species -
or attempting to engage in
any such conduct.
The Florida scrub jay
(Aphelocoma coerulescens)
is the size of a Blue Jay, but
without a crest and with
more subtle markings. It
lacks the white-tipped wings
and tail feathers of the Blue
Jay. A necklace of blue feath-
ers separates the white throat
from the grayer underparts
and a white line over the eye
often blends into a whitish
forehead. scrub jays do not
migrate, but remain in their
home territories all year and
live in "family" groups,
where a breeding pair, that
have mated for life, are
assisted by their juvenile off-
spring in nest tending, sentry
duty and territory defense
chores. This is called "coop-
erative breeding" and is
unusual bird behavior.
scrub jays are habitat spe-
cific. That means they will
not do well in an environ-
ment other than the Florida
scrub. They cannot or will
not adapt to the parking lots
and city scapes in which their
cousin, the Blue Jay, has
thrived. They do require the
open sand spaces in the
scrub, where they will cache
hundreds of acorns for future
use. The omnivorous crea-
tures also eat beetles, crick-
ets, grasshoppers, caterpillars
and wasps.
They have several songs,
but none are particularly
melodious. One cry is for
detecting certain species of
hawks, an enemy of the scrub
jay. Another is the hiccup
call of the female inciting the
male to defend its territory.
There are a variety of others,
but their meanings are too
subtle to detect.
Breeding season begins in
early March to late June. Two
to five eggs are laid in a sub-
stantial thick-walled cup of
oak twigs of varying shapes
and thickness, lined with fine
rootlets. Eggs are smooth,
slightly glossy, pea-green to
pale glaucous-green or pale
grayish. Incubation is by the
female (being fed by the
male) and takes 17-19 days.
Young are fed by both par-
ents with other birds (usually
yearlings) helping out.
The dwindling population
of this unique bird can be
attributed to loss of habitat,
due to agriculture conver-
sion, commercial and resi-
dential development, feral
cats, snakes, auto traffic and

detected in a population near
the Archbold Biological
Station. This threat is being
monitored very carefully by
qualified scientists.
We like the photo of the

as it indicates the co-depend-
ence of the bird and human.


It's existence depends upon
caring people who will
always try to set aside wild
lands for our wild creatures.

The easy and correct way to plant bulbs in your garden


I had a request
from a friend to
S write an article on
the proper plant-
ing of bulbs. I
"---' know that it can
be a somewhat
confusing process
and this is an
effort to make it a
News From bit simpler for all
The of you frustrated
Watershed gardeners out
there.
Corine Burgess Bulbs are a
Bulbs are a
great way to add color and variety
to your garden. The best time of
year to plant most bulbs is in the
fall. When spring arrives, you
should have an array of color burst
forth from the soil from your prop-
erly planted bulbs.
It is vital that you prep your soil
before you stick the bulb into it.
You will need to make sure that
drainage is good. If you have lots of
clay or other matter in your soil that
keeps it from draining very well,
you can add compost or peat moss
to it to help the situation. When
adding soil additives it is important


to work the substance into the first
12 inches of soil. The deeper you
go the better. But strive to get at
least the first foot worked in.
As with all plants, it is essential
to do your homework. If the plant
will require full sun, make sure the
area you are planting is a sunny
spot. Or if it requires partial shade,
make sure to plant it in an area that
is shady some of the time.
The general rule of thumb for
planting bulbs is plant three times
as deep as the bulb is tall. Planting
depth is measured from the bottom
of the bulb. Some bulbs, such as
summer bulbs, may have individual
and different planting requirements.
The best thing to do is read the
package or get on the Internet and
do a little research to make sure
you're planting the bulb properly.
When placing the bulb in the
hole, make sure the nose is pointing
up toward the sky and the bottom,
where the roots are, is facing the
bottom of the hole. If you don't see
any roots, look at the bulb and
place the most pointed side face up.
Most bulbs are larger or more flat
on the bottom and pointer toward


the top.
OK, now you have the bulb
planted in the hole, cover with the
soil mixture you worked with the
compost or peat moss. Water the
bulbs after planting; this helps the
soil to settle and provides needed
moisture so that the plants can
begin to root. Do not overwater
though as this will cause bulb rot.
The rule of thumb is to add about
an inch of water per week. If it has
rained, obviously you don't have to
water.
Once spring arrives, hopefully
you will be able to enjoy your beau-
tiful flowers. By late spring or early
summer, the foliage will begin to
die back. Summer is the dormant
period for spring bulbs. It is time to
dig up the bulbs and store them for
next season. Some bulbs benefit
from being dug up, divided and
spread out over the entire area.
Others simply bloom year after year
without being bothered. You can tell
if you need to dig up your bulbs by
the smaller flower size, uneven
bloom and uneven plant height. If
you see these signs, you need to dig
up the bulbs, divide them up and

spread them out.
Most bulbs should be dug up
when the leaves on the plants turn
yellow. According to the type, most
bulbs should be removed from the
ground, washed off and dried off
and placed in a moist layer of peat


moss or sawdust in a cool place.
They should be stored away from
sunlight in an area where the tem-
perature will not go below 50
degrees or above 70 degrees.
Another ideal way to store them is
on trays with screen bottoms. If you
only have a few bulbs, you can
store them in paper bags hung by
strings.
Be sure that air can circulate
around the bulbs while stored and
never store them more than two or
three layers deep. If possible try to
make sure the bulbs are stored in an
area where humidity is low.
Hopefully, for those of you who
are interested in planting bulbs in
your garden, this article has been
helpful. If not, there is a wealth of
information on the Internet and
most nurseries are happy to give
gardening tips when asked.
Happy gardening!

Taurus needs to share a smile this week


Aries (March 21-April 20) Aries,
burning the candle at both ends is not
something you want to do at this point in
time. Pick one direction and go with it
rather than going in many directions.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) Share a
smile and see what comes of it, Taurus. It
can't hurt, right'? Someone relies on your
generosity this week even when you're
not feeling up to the task.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) A brave
idea will have tongues wagging, Gemini.
But you can lake it. Just prove this jour-
ney is worth your while. Love knows no
bounds on Thursday.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) Cancer,
remarkable things happen when you
widen your perspective. Embrace this
new outlook because you may not have
this clarity again soon.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Leo, there's
so much others don't know about you.
The joy lies in them trying to find it out.
A special relationship comes to fruition
this week, which is worth the wait.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) Many sur-


HOROSCOPE0


prises are in store for you, Virgo. Some
may end up being bittersweet. Enjoy
whatever you can in the weeks to come,
because there's a shift looming ahead.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Libra, a
special someone wants to dote on you
left and right. It's alright to be fawned
upon once in a while, but don't make it a
habit or expect it at every turn.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You want
something for the wrong reasons,
Scorpio, and that's why it has been just
out of your grasp. Change your tune and
your situation may change as well.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -
There's so much to say to someone close
to you but you find yourself tongue-tied,
Sagittarius. That's not often the case with
you, so it catches you off guard.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) Cap-


ricorn, change your perception ol some-
one and you will find you can start a
great friendship You'll just have to be
open minded and then wail and see.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) -
Aquarius, there's not much you can do to
stop the chain of events that will unfold,
so go along for the ride. Who knows?
You may enjoy the events that unfold.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) It's hard
to see what is right in front of your face
when your eyes are squeezed shut,
Pisces. What are you afraid of?

Pamela Jay Paralikis is featured

artist at HAL's 1st Friday event


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING A reception will be held for
Pamela Jay Paralikis at Highlands Art
League's Yellow House Gallery on 1st
Friday, 5-8 p.m. Nov. 7. Her work will be
featured in the East Gallery from Nov. 7-28.
This reception is part of several happenings
at 1st Friday-Sunset at the Village.
In addition to the reception for Paralikis,
the Visual Arts Center will be the location of
a wine tasting event from 6:30-8:30 p.m. to
benefit Highlands Art League. Tickets are
$30 per person and can be reserved by call-
ing 385-5312. At the same time, Highlands
Museum of The Arts will be open from 5-8
p.m. for visitors to experience the exception-
al exhibit, "RHYTHMS, 26 Cuban Artist
from the 1960s to the Present."
Paralikis, featured Artist of the Month, has
been living and painting in Sebring for the
last two years. She had been painting for
three years prior in her northern home out-
side Boston. She received a bachelor of fine
arts degree in 1968 from the University of
Massachusetts.
In 2000 while on a working vacation to
Lima, Peru, she worked with indigent, aban-
doned and abused elders in Villa El
Salvador, a slum outside of Lima. She took
many pictures of these elders, and began
showing her work in photography clubs
around Boston. She also gave informal talks
with slideshows about her "Abuelitos" (little
grandparents) and formed a non-profit group
to help them that continues today.

Voters League

155 West Center Ave. Sebring,FL 33870 hcvotersleague@embarqmail.com


The Highlands County Voters League is a nonpartisan
group dedicated to bringing the current issues facing
our local government to the people.
It has been our belief that without local citizens to investigate both sides of an issue and
bring those issues to a public forum we are subject to the backroom decisions that have
plagued government and unnecessarily increased taxes.
For these reasons we have
endorsed the following local candidates.

Mary Wilson
for Highlands County Clerk of Court.
Wilson has proven that she will indiscriminately use the audit system to root out wasteful gov-
ernment spending. She has proven to be an excellent example of the kind of practices and man-
agement we need to ensure accountability in local government.
Germaine has campaigned that he will change the procedures currently used to determine which
department will be audited. His decision to use a committee made up of himself and people he
hand picks, will be like asking the fox to supervise the hen house and reeks with the smell of
backroom politics.
Wilson's continued use of the International Audit System based on greatest risk will provide an
independent impersonal approach to the auditing of county departments.

Zane Thomas
for Highlands County Commission district 5
Zane Thomas is an independent candidate who brings a fresh approach to the county commis-
sion. Thomas' degree in city planning and his work with the Highlands County Planning
Department shows he has the education and experience to understand and deal with the constant
planning and building issues in the county.
In his opponents 16 years as county commissioner there have been too many times when pro-
posed budgets for buildings or recreational areas have cost taxpayers more than double their
original bid.
Zane Thomas will be a full time commissioner, one who will be able to understand blueprints,
zoning and additional costs. Unlike his opponent, Thomas will not have to take staff's advice
because he has the time, experience and education to understand any new planning or building.

Jeff Carlson
for Highlands County Commission district 3
Again we base our endorsement on experience and education. Carlson's 20 in accounting and
finance coupled with his 9 years of experience on Sebring City Council gives him the edge over
his opponent.
While Jeri Canale's experience as a realtor could be a benefit, it could also be a detriment.
Understandably realtors have wanted to do away with the impact fees, but the reasons for that
are more from a business perspective rather than what is best for the taxpayers.
While this was a difficult decision, we still feel the advantages of an accountant outweigh the
4& advantages of a realtor.

Ron Grimming
for Highlands County Sheriff
Many people are having a difficult time trying to decide who to vote for sheriff and it has been
no different for the Voters League. There have been so many accusations on both sides as well
as many difficult and detailed differences that it is hard for the average voter to make a decision.
Susan Benton has one term of experience as our local sheriff and we appreciate her efforts.
However, when we look at Grimming's accumulation of state and local expertise he definitely
has the lead in experience and education.
Still, our reason for choosing Grimming is based on his experience with Tallahassee in rooting
out government corruption. We cannot demand justice in our streets while we allow those within
our government to look the other way and allow friends or relatives to strip the county coffers.


Please remember that voting is not just a privilege it is a responsibility.
Thank you for taking the time and effort required to ensure that your
vote is in the best interest of our county, state and nation.

The Voters League meets the third Thursday of each month at Homer's
Restaurant in the Sebring. Social hour begins at 5:00 p.m. and the meeting
begins at 6:00 p.m. The meeting is open to the public.

Gary Filip to debut

new CD live with

Nov. 28 performance


Special to the News-Sun/
LAKE PLACID Retiring
from the Chicago piano bar
scene in 2005, Gary Filip will
debut his new CD, "Inspired."
a collection of original songs
penned from his new Florida
home.
"The songs from my new
CD were inspired by the
opportunity to start a brand
new life here in Florida with
my new wife, my new family,
my new home and my new
friends," Filip said simply
with a smile.
Early pictures of Filip show
an accordion on his lap and a
smile on his face at the age of
4. Another picture depicts
smiling father George on
accordion and son Gary on
keyboard during his teen
years at Hickley-Big Rock
High School; the drum major
hat is almost as tall as the
younger Filip.
After years of touring, writ-
ing jingles, posing for pic-
tures with Ray Charles, Billy
Crystal and Crystal Gayle and
making legendary status in
every major piano bar in
Chicago, Filip "retired" to


Lake Placid to be near his par-
ents.
Today Filip teaches music
at the Lake Placid Children's
Montessori Academy, enter-
taining at Charlie's Seafood
and Steak just off the historic
Sebring Circle during dinner
hours, is a certified licensed
contractor in the state of
Florida and builds energy-
efficient and ecologically-
friendly homes with his father
in the Lake Placid area.
And during this time, Filip
has composed and produced a
series of original songs, each
depicting his new way of life.
Recorded in Chicago with
long-time "Gary Filip
Musical Friends," Filip will
debut the CD live at the
Highlands Little Theatre on
Friday, Nov. 28.
A reception, catered by
Charlie's Seafood and Steak,
will welcome guests at 7:30
p.m. with a live performance
of the CD in its entirety at
8:30 p.m. Musicians from
Chicago and locally will meld
together on the Highlands
Little Theatre stage. After a

short intermission, the musi-
cians will entertain with an
ad-lib jam session that is sure
to delight.
Tickets for the CD release
gala are available at the
Highlands Little Theatre Box
Office, 356 W. Center Ave. in
Sebring. The Ticket Box


Office phone number is 382-
2525.
At $35 per person, the
evening includes a catered
reception, the CD performed
live from start to finish, an
informal jam session by the
collected musicians and a per-
sonalized CD.

Spots still available

in stained glass class


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The stained
glass class that is now being
offered at the Highlands Art
League still has a few open-
ings for the first session.
If you ever thought about
how a stained glass piece of
art is created, now is the
time to sign up for this class.
This is a very old art of
expression that has been
totally brought up to date
with modern techniques and
products.
Betty Francisco, the
instructor, has been doing
stained glass since 1992 and
she will be sharing her love
of this medium in a series of
classes that meet once a
week, for six weeks. All sup-
plies and patterns are pro-
vided. However if you have
a favorite theme, the instruc-
tor will be able to work with
you to adapt it to glass.
The class starts on
Monday and will run
through Dec. 8, from 9 a.m.
to noon. This is a fun class


that needs no previous art
experience. The unique
process of coupling glass
pieces together with copper
foil and lead to form an intri-
cate art piece or a simple
design. Beginners and
advanced students are wel-
come. An art background is
helpful but not necessary,
just bring your enthusiasm
and wear closed shoes.
Classes are held at the
Highlands Art League's
newly renovated and redeco-
rated Visual Arts Center
(orange building) on Lake
Jackson (behind the yellow
house) in Downtown
Sebring. The fee for the
class is $99, however if you
are a member of the Art
League, it is only $84. There
is also a fee for supplies of
$30. All class fees are to be
paid to the instructor,
Call Francisco at 471-
1452, or HAL at 385-5312.
These classes are very limit-
ed due to individual atten-
tion given to each student.

Highlands Halloween a night of Horrors


Devil and Streak offenses struggle in losses, Dragons battle on

Pirates wear down Sebring, mar Homecoming


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING An early
touchdown, sparked by an
electrifying punt return, got
the Sebring Homecoming
festivities off to a great start,
it seemed.
But a relentless Braden
River attack wore down the
Blue Streaks for a 28-11
Pirate victory Friday night at
Firemen's Field.
Midway through the first
quarter, a Braden River punt
was fielded at the 25 by
Devin Clarke.
Flashing through the first
wave of special teams,
Clarke took off down the far


sideline toward paydirt.
Locked up with defender
Mick Olitsky at the ten,
Clark fought his way
down to the three to Brade
put Sebring on the
brink.
Two plays later,
quarterback Matt Set
Grubb kept in on a
sneak for the Streak
score.
Caleb McGee then pow-
ered in for the two-pointer
and Sebring was up 8-0.
The defense held as the
teams then traded posses-
sions and the Pirates seemed
to be stopped again as they
faced a fourth and five at the


Sebring 35.
But a direct snap to Willie
McNeal caught everyone in


n River

blue off guard and
suddenly it was 8-7
with 7:19 left in the
first half.
The Streak offense
couldn't get anything
going again, giving
the ball back to
Braden River.


Two Tevin Bryant runs for
six yards didn't seem like
much, but he then broke off a
62 yarder which was saved
only by a J.C. Howard down-
field tackle at the Sebring
five.
Howard came up big again


on the very next play, as
quarterback Steven Fischer
fired toward the corner of the
end zone.
Howard stepped in front of
it, snaring it and flashing
down the sidelines for an'
apparent 104-yard intercep-
tion.
But first, a yellow flag was
seen on the green grass, and
the early indication was of an
illegal Sebring block.
The officials then huddled
up and picked up the flag,
citing the high school rule
that a ball intercepted in the
end zone cannot be returned,

Bryant wore down the Blue Streak defense in Braden River's 28-11 win Friday night.

Avon Park's Teddy Allen finds some running room to the
outside Friday night. Unfortunately, the ball would soon be
stripped from Allen, one of nine Red Devil turnovers as
DeSoto rolled, 41-0.

FORT MYERS The three
areas of football that a team
must play to succeed are qual-
ity offense, defense, and spe-
cial teams.
Friday night the Lake Placid
Green Dragons dominated two
of the three areas of the game
but fell to Bishop Verot 27-16
in Ft. Myers.
"We played well and are
improving every week. We are
making adjustments and the
kids are picking up on them,"
said head coach Jason Holden.
Offensively the Dragons did
something they haven't done
all season long which is out

Reached the day after her
Lady Dragons had locked up
their fourth straight district
title with a win at Mulberry,
head coach Marilyn Jones
was still feeling the thrill of
victory.
"I'm doing wonderfully
today," she said. "Nothing
can bother me today."
Such would be the case
with a team, and program,
that is getting used to this
winning thing.
Not just getting used to it,
but getting to the point of
expecting it.
"The first year we were
just ecstatic," Jones said.
"The second year, we just


Dragon defense held Bishop
Verot to only 142 yards.
Lake Placid rushed the ball
for 146 yards and threw for
101.
"Our defense played well
and good enough for
us to win, but they got
in the hole a little bit.
They didn't give up 2
but one score," said
Lake ]
Holden.
The Achilles heel
for the Green Dragons
on the night came on
special teams, as they allowed
two kickoff returns and a punt
return to be run back for a
touchdown.
"Special teams are impor-
tant. This is something we
need to work on for sure,"


couldn't believe we'd done it
again.
"But then we knew what
we had and went out really
shooting for number three,"
she continued. "And this
year, we had the talent and
expected to do it again."
Funny thing how the talent
brings the expectations,
which then brings more tal-
ent, as the attitude shifts.
"It really started with the
swim team," Jones said of
the water-laden Dragons, a
perennial district power.
"The kids coming into the
high school would see they
were a winning team and
want to be a part of that."

commented Holden.
The opening kickoff of the
night came down to Jesse
Kane at the 15-yard line where
he found, a seaun. got to the
outside and ran past the Green
Dragon coverage team.
Vero The Dragons strug-
gled moving the ball
over their first two pos-
sessions of the game as
lacid
they went three-and-
out, while the defense
continued to battle
strong despite having
poor field position.
Both squads traded offen-
sive possessions over the next
several minutes as both teams
continued to shoot themselves
in the foot due to bad snaps
and missed opportunities.


Bishop Verot took over the
football deep in Green Dragon
territory on their next posses-
sion, but the defense got a sack
from Andre Wilson throwing
Kistel for an 8-yard loss.
Two plays later the Dragons
forced a fumble and were able
to recover it to end the drive.
On the ensuing drive Lake
Placid ran off ten plays, thanks
to a strong 8 yard run from
Young, but the big play was a
22-yard strike from Zack
Campbell to younger brother
Jacob Campbell.
The drive stalled four plays
later, however, as the Dragons
weren't able to complete a
pass to move the chains.

The Lady Dragons were all smiles after wrapping up
their fourth straight district title Thursday night.


Midwestern thinking a

'Central' state of mind


This recent little 'chilly'
snap reminded me a bit of
back home as I got to finally
dig into the fall wardrobe a
little.
I was also feeling some
reconnection with Sweet
Home Chicago as I suffered
in watching the Rays lose in
the World Series.
Well, I guess I can only
relate to the losing part, as
the World Series has had lit-
tle connection with the Cubs
in my lifetime.
Mine or anyone younger
than about 108 I'm adding
eight years to the 100-year
drought, since you'd have to
have been at least eight to
have had any recollection of
the Cubs thrilling five-game
win over the Tigers back in
1908.
Anyway, with these
thoughts harkening back to
the Midwest, I paid a little
closer attention as I put up
the professional league
standings for page two on
Saturday.
1 like how the NBA, NFL
and NHL have kind of shift-
ed around some of the divi-
sions and renamed them
based on geographic area.
You've got the Northwest
Divisions, the Southeast, the
Southwest, the Atlantic and
the Pacific in both hockey
and basketball.
And OK, the NFL just has
north, south, east and west
divisions in each of its' con-
ferences, but at least it makes
them feel kind of homey.
Your Florida teams are in
the South, just like you are.
The Bears are in the North,
along with Green Bay.
Minnesota and Detroit just
as their soon to be frozen
denizens are.
But I was struck when 1
realized that in the NBA and
NHL, while they have added
a nice geographic niche to all
other divisions, the eternal
home of the Bulls and


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne


Blackhawks was simply left
alone.
Some might think it's nice
to stick with tradition, to still
be in the historically named
division they've been a part
of for so long.
Except when the division
is simply called the
'Central.'
How bland does that
sound?
Granted, first reactions to
hearing of such cities as
Cleveland, Milwaukee or
Detroit might not exactly
bring thoughts of anything
much more than bland, that
is not the case.
Cleveland: home of the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,
along the shores of Lake
Erie, the city that gave us
Drew Carey.
OK, well, they've got the
R&R HOF.
Milwaukee: Beer Town
USA with the annual blowout
of Oktoberfest (which helps
it retain the Beer Town title,
believe me).
Detroit: Motown,
America's Auto Maker a
quick swim from Canada!
So, maybe they're not the
goliath of New York, nor the
glitz of L.A., or even in the
more scenic parts like the
southwest or the Rocky
Mountains but they should
have a better group name
than merely 'Central.'

Marthon Golf Fundraiser
SEBRING It's the American Dream
that Deborah McNeely and her daughters
need and it's the reason for the Sprint
Marathon Golf Fundraiser at Sun 'N
Lake's Turtle Run Course, Saturday, Dec.
13 at 7:30 a.m.
Sprint Marathon golf is a timed shotgun
scramble which is a 36-hole golf marathon
and is a relatively new concept for the
Sebring area.
The fastest play and lowest score as well
as the longest time and highest score win
trophies bragging rights, that is!
This golf fundraiser is unique it's to
sponsor a home thorough Higlands
County Habitat for Humanity for Deborah
McNeely and her two teenage daughters
Briteny and Brandy.
McNeely is a single mom, working long
hours and struggling financially.
She has worked for Kenilworth
Rehabilitation Center for five years and
was recently promoted to dispatcher trans-
porting the elderly.
Each Habitat home must have a sponsor
and Pastor Bruce Linhart of Highlands
Community Church has stepped up to help
the McNeely family.
The goal is to raise $50,000 of the $70,000
needed to build the McNeely's home.
Habitat provides affordable housing to
low to moderate income families currently
living in substandard conditions and pay-
ing 40-70 percent of their monthly income
on rental housing.
Each prospective Habitat homeowner
must complete 400 hours of volunteer
work ("sweat equity") in order to qualify.
The McNeely's have worked for 2 years
to complete 350 hours of their sweat equity
and are anxious to begin construction on
their own home.
All Habitat homes are constructed with
Habitat's volunteer army.
Habitat is not only the builder/developer
but also the Mortgage Company. Habitat
loans are all 0 percent mortgages with an
average payment of $450 per month, which

Lake Placid outgains, outdefends


Vikings -
Continued from 1D
go in the first half, the Vikings
got the ball back, but on the sec-
ond play Gonzalez nabbed his
second interception to hold the
score at 12-0 at intermission.
Lake Placid opened the sec-
ond half on offense but couldn't
get anything going and were
forced to punt.
With the ball on the Lake
Placid 43, Bishop Verqt was sit-
ting pretty. Runs of eight and
four yards from Thomas moved
the ball closer to the end zone.
Kirst then ripped off a ten
yard run to get the ball inside
the 20 yard line.
Two plays later the ball was
at the two with a third and goal.
Kirst took the ball on a keep-
er to the left where Zack
Campbell came up and made
the tackle from his safety pos-
session all the while being
blocked in the bacK.
The penalty moved Verot
back to the 20 where they
attempted a field goal, but
missed wide left.
Lake Placid took their next
offensive possession down the
field for a 16-play, 55-yard
drive thanks to some good old
fashioned power football.
Navahri Holden powered
through the Viking defense with
runs of 5, 16, 6, and 5'yards and
Campbell also connected with
Holden for a 25-yard strike.
The Dragons got down inside
the twenty but were called for


but those darn kicks


an offensive pass interference.
That put the Dragons in a
third and long but they were
unable to convert.
On fourth down Stephen
Guelff drilled a 42-yard field
goal to put the Dragons on the
scoreboard with 10:46 to go in
the fourth quarter.
But on the ensuing kickoff,
Kane took the ball 90-yards to
answer back and make it 20-3.
Bishop Verot then got greedy
and tried an onside kick that
bounced through the front line
and into the arms of Wilson,
who caught the ball in stride
and took it down to the Viking
18 for a 48-yard return.
A solid run on first down by
Caleb Jones was followed by a
sweep from Young for 13 yards
down to the Verot two yard line,
where Holden powered the ball
in for a touchdown.
The PAT was no good mov-
ing the score to 20-9.
A trade of possessions the
brought about a Dragon punt
and resulted in the third Viking
return for a touchdown' and a
27-9 lead.
Needing a score, Zack
Campbell put the Dragons
offense on his back and maneu-
vered the ball down the field.
On the first play he picked up
a 29-yard run and then connect-
ed with Young on a 15-yard
strike.
Jones then reeled off a 12
yarder, but disaster struck the


Dragons on the next play as the
snapped ball slid across the turf
for a 19-yard loss.
The Dragons luck turned
around on 4th down when the
Vikings were called for pass-
interference to give them life.
Holden then took a hand-off
up the middle eight yards for
the score.
Guelff added the PAT to cut
the lead to 27-16, but with 44
seconds to go in the game, it
was just a bit too little, too late.
"Zack plays with a lot of
emotion and goes 100 percent.
Last week he really started to
improve throwing the ball,
reading receivers, and seeing
his passing lanes. He has done
well throwing to spots and find-
ing open .receivers," said
Holden
Lake Placid had their best
performance of the year
through the air from Zack
Campbell who was 8-of-19 for
101 yards.
The Dragons were led in
rushing by Jones with 63 yard
followed by Holden who had 52
yards and two scores.
Young also had a great game
as he rushed for 21 yards and
had four catches for 72 yards.
"Avery had a great game for
us. He had a couple nice runs
and had great runs after the
catch," commented Holden.
Lake Placid will be back at it
Friday as they will host St.
Petersburg Catholic.


Devils downed, but up for Sebring


Contihued from 1D
just four minutes into the
game.
The Red Devil defense
was able to leash Shaw to
some extent, holding him to
just five yards per carry,
down from his year-to-date
average of 12 yards per
carry, but all told, Shaw
would end the night with
169 yards total rushing,
three touchdowns, and one
interception.
During Avon Park's sec-
ond series of the game, and
less than two minutes since
the last DeSoto touchdown,
a fumble at the 35 allowed
DeSoto's defensive end
Greg Summers a chance to
scoop and run for a defen-
sive touchdown
On the next series, the
Red Devils Virgil Cooper
and Teddy Allen showed that
moving the ball on the
ground was their business,
and together they put the
ball just nine yards out from
a touchdown before Shaw
killed their drive with an,
interception.
Cooper would end the
evening with just 35 yards
rushing, and two pass recep-
tions under his belt for
another couple of yards.
Allen faired better with 62


'We are a better
team than that.'

ANDY BONJOKIAN
Avon Park head coach
yards rushing, but struggled
to hold onto the ball.
Neither team could gain
an advantage after that, and
the game settled down to a
defensive grind until a cost-
ly Avon Park personal foul
nudged the balance putting
DeSoto within the twenty,
and giving Shaw the advan-
tage he needed for another
touchdown allowing DeSoto
to lead 21-0 at the half.
Avon Park would fumble
twice more in the third quar-
ter, one of which set the
stage for yet another Shaw
touchdown, but again the
Red Devil defense would
hold the Bulldogs to just that
one touchdown until the
fourth quarter.
Shaw fumbled early in the
final stanza, allowing Avon
Park an opportunity.
But an interception would
again kill the Red Devil
drive.
Unable to take advantage
of the Avon Park mistake,
the Bulldogs would give it
back with just under five


minutes left in the game.
But yet another mis-
thrown Red Devil pass set
up a Bulldog drive for a
touchdown, this time by
DeSoto running back
Sammy Barajas who scram-
bled in from the forty.
Just 30 seconds later,
another Avon Park fumble.
This time the ball was
stripped from Allen by
DeSoto linebacker Cameron
McCay, who rushed it in 35
yards for a touchdown.
The point aftef was good,
and although'Avon Park got
one last short series, that
capped the game 41-0
DeSoto.
"We are a better team than
that," said Bonjokian. "We
talked all week about miss-
ing assignments. Don't get
me wrong, Shaw is a good
running back, we knew that
coming in, but we gave up
too many ."
Next Friday, Avon Park
again stays home, this time
to face off against county
rival Sebring.
"We have, to put this
behind us," Bonjokian said.
"Sebring is coming to town,
and we need to bounce
back."

And with a winning team.
the attitude and expectation
of success is built in, as well
as the hard work that goes
along with it.
A repeating cycle that
becomes a regenerative force.
And as the volleyball pro-
gram has risen in power and
prestige, there is another
option for kids wanting to be
part of a winning team.
"Now during tryouts, we
have to turn kids down, make
cuts," Jones said of the
expanded volume of hope-
fuls. "That allows us more to
choose from and have the
pick of the better players. It
helps to be able to build on
the success of the past."
The players themselves
haven't necessarily seen a
shift in the attitude, nor real-
ly observed the raised expec-
tations they've more been
swept up in it.
"When I got called up for
districts my freshman year, I
really didn't know what it
was all about," junior Sierra
Weaver said. "I knew they
had won it the year before,
but I really didn't know what
it was at first. But I got a
sense of it real quick."
And though some are lost
to graduation each year, the
bond of winning carries on.
"Each year we seem to get
closer," senior Julie
Shrewsbury said. "We're
always close during the sea-
son, but not in the offseason
we hang out more. And we'll
call each other any time and
just meet up and play volley-
ball."
Which can only serve to

do the inner expectations that
prompt more hard work in the

"Even as players graduate,
new players will step up,"
Shrewsbury said. "They'll
start training in the summer,
they'll play all summer.
Those left from before will
have that experience and
leadership to keep it going. It
won't really be that different
in the years to come."
Except, perhaps, for the
expectations to get even
higher.
"Our goal is to take it one
step at a time and take it a
step farther every year,"
Weaver said. "Districts is the


minimum now. We want to
take it to the next level and
get farther in regionals."
An expectation still on the
table for this season as Lake
Placid hosts Melbourne
Central Catholic Tuesday
night.
But also one that will con-
tinue under Weaver's watch.
"I understand it now and
have the experience to lead
next year," she said. "We'll
expect it to continue and we'll
be working hard for it. I'm so
excited for the rest of this
year, and next year as well."
A sure sign of a winning
program, when the excite-
ment for the next season is
ever present.


Revival huddle shows players spirit


Continued from 1D
but is just a change of posses-
sion.
Which gave the Streaks the
ball at their 20, and though
the set of events may have
been a let down, Sebring
promptly started moving the
ball.
Grubb connected with
Clarke for gains of 43, 10 and
13 yards, as well as with
Daniel Burnett for a 10-yard
strike.
Stalled at the 6 on fourth
down, Buck Schroeder drilled
a 21-yard field goal to make it
an 11-7 Blue Streak lead at
the half.
But the Bryant show took
center stage as the final 24
minutes got underway.
Powering for 27 yards on
the Pirates opening posses-
sion, mixed in with short
passes from Fischer to Chris
Garcia and McNeal, Bryant
soon put Braden River on top
with a score to make it 14-11.
Burnett did some strong


running of his own on
Sebring's next possession,
gaining 29 yards on four car-
ries, but a sack short-circuited
the drive and Braden River
was back in business.
The Streaks seemed to
dodge a bullet when a 68-yard
touchdown run was called
back on a holding penalty.
But the Pirates kept the
drive going and had it first-
and-ten at the Sebring 16.
From there, Bryant rushed
to the ten, where he was met
by a number of Streak tack-
lers.
But they merely jumped on
for the ride as Bryant kept his
legs churning, carrying the
pile the final ten yards for the
score.
A Sebring three-and-out
bridged the third and fourth
quarters, but new life seemed
gained when the Pirates tried
another fake punt and were
stopped near midfield.
Grubb found Clarke for ten
yards and Howard for nine as


the drive pushed into Braden
River territory.
But Olitsky soon intercept-
ed a pass and Bryant carried
four times for 42 yards and
the final score.
"The first half we played
pretty good," head coach
Jared Hamlin said. "But our
offense really didn't help us
and they (Braden River) just
wore us down. That kid
(Bryant) was strong."
The loss drops Sebring to
1-7, but any thought of giving
in aren't apparent as the team
huddle afterward 'was in
revival mode, buoying each
other up, as this group contin-
ues to fight.
And it won't take much to
get them up this week, as a
date with the eternal rival Red
Devils looms Friday.
"That's where we're at,"
Hamlin said. "We've got
Avon Park coming up, and if
that won't get you up, I don't
know what will."

No 'Central' as


in "Comedy"


Continued from 1D
Some might spin it to say
central means the hub, the
main location, that which
everything else revolves
around.
But it still just sounds so
dull.
Call it the Midwest
Division, or the Great Lakes
- something that identifies
the region with a little more
color, a little more flair.
Flair which reminds me


of the movie "Office Space,"
which is always a funny one
to check out.
Too bad I can't though,
since the Comcast server in
the area doesn't carry
"Comedy Central."
See, there it is again, that
dang 'Central' thing.
