SEBRING The first-
ever female elected sheriff in
the state of Florida has made
history again by being re-
elected.
"None of this would be
possible without the dedicat-
ed men and women of the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office," she said shortly after
the results were announced.
"To all of our community ...
we work for you folks."
The race was fiercely con-
tested with Republican candi-
date Ron Grimming taking 45
percent of the vote.
"We were able to run a
competitive race and I wish
the sheriff well," he said late
Tuesday night. "There were a
number of issues that arose
during the campaign and we
certainly, I think, tried to
bring those issues to voters
attention."
Benton said the hardest
part of running against
Grimming was that he was an
unknown, unlike when she

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Cohan
Radio Group will again host
its annual Thanksgiving in
the Heartland drive beginning
Thursday at the Heartland
National Bank in Sebring.
A combined effort of
99.1FM WWOJ and Lite
105.7 FM last year to raise
cash and canned goods for the
New Testament Church and
Mission brought in thousands
of dollars in cash and three
truckloads full of non-perish-
able foodstuffs.
Just as in the past, air per-
sonalities from both the pop-
ular local radio stations will
host remote broadcasts from
the Heartland National Bank
locations in Avon Park,
Sebring and Lake Placid.
It begins this Thursday at
the Sebring office at 320 U.S.
27 North from 10 a.m. until 6
p.m.
"We have done
Thanksgiving in the
Heartland for many years and
we especially would like to
thank our listeners and spon-
sors for helping Rev. Karl,"
said Cohan Radio Group
President Peter Coughlin.
Slated to do the remote
broadcasts this year are John
Meder, Stacy Clark, Scott
Maxon, Les Howard and
Dave Onsted.
The Karls have operated
the New Testament Church
and Mission for better than
three decades and this year
were the recipients of the
Highlands County Champion
for Children award.
Remotes are scheduled for
Thursday Nov. 13 in Avon
Park and Thursday Nov. 20 in
Lake Placid.

Division said that investigators did have a per-
son of interest in custody on an unrelated
charge.
"It's too early to tell if this is a drug-related
instance," stated LaBelle.
"We have been working this around the clock
since yesterday, and we think we will know
more (today)."

A two-car accident on U.S. 27 and Hammock Road backed up traffic for nearly a mile
Monday afternoon. A teenage driver of a green Ford F-150 reportedly ran a red light trav-
eling southbound on US 27, officials from the Sebring Police Department said. The truck
collided with a silver Saturn Vue turning north on U.S. 27 from Hammock Road. The
driver of the Saturn was put in a neck brace and transported by Emergency Medical
Services personnel. The Ford sustained significant front-end damage when it broadsided
the driver side of the Saturn. The Saturn was totaled. The accident brought traffic to a
standstill, with six lanes reduced to one on each side. Debris from the 12:45 p.m. acci-
dent was cleared from the road by 2 p.m.

Hit-and-run



leaves 1 dead


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFELY
christopherluffey@newssuncom
SEBRING Sebring
police officers were called
to the scene of a hit-and-run
death in front of 1926
Melady Ave. late Monday
night.
Police said one man was
dragged by a car and killed
when the left rear tire ran
over his head during a phys-
ical confrontation.
According to witnesses,
David Alan Quiggle Jr. was
driving when he
arrived on Melady
Avenue around
11:30 p.m. with two
passengers in a
white Lexus.
Several individu-
als were already Qul
gathered in the area.
Quiggle allegedly got into
an argument with Edwin
Vega in which blows were
exchanged. Quiggle is
accused by witnesses of hit-
ting Vega over the head with
a Bacardi bottle.
Michael Lowe and Gary
Race, who were at the
scene, reported to police
that they stopped the fight
between Quiggle and Vega
and that Quiggle returned to
his car, getting behind the
wheel.
Lowe said the victim
Vega then "broke loose"
went to Quiggle's car,
leaned in the open driver's
window and continued the
fight.
Lowe and Race said they
saw a passenger in the front
seat of the Lexus grab hold
of Vega as Quiggle alleged-


ly hit the gas with Vega
hanging out of the window.
They further reported that
Vega's feet couldn't keep up
with the speed of car and he
ultimately fell to the road, at
which time the automobile
ran over his head.
Quiggle and his two pas-
sengers were said to have
driven off at that time.
When police arrived Vega
was dead at the scene. Sgt.
Andrew Markham and Cpl.
Vivian Buck went immedi-
ately to Quiggle's
residence at 213 S.
Commerce St. arriv-
ing at 11:50 p.m.
about 20 minutes
after the incident.
Quiggle was found
ggle along with Shea
Howell and Dillian
McGovern, who were deter-
mined to have been the two
passengers in question.
The arresting officers
were able to smell a moder-
ate amount of alcohol on
Quiggle, who refused to
submit to field sobriety
exercises.
A blood sample was taken
because Quiggle had been
identified as the driver of
the car by multiple witness-
es and because a death was
involved. He was taken into
custody without incident.
Both Howell and
McGovern deny grabbing or
holding Vega.
All three individuals who
had been in the Lexus stated
they thought the car had run
over the victim's foot, and
had not known he was
killed.


Public defender, husband arrested for drug charges,


resisting officer after 911 hang-up investigation"


News-Sun staff report
SEBRING A Sebring public defender may
need to put her legal training to work to defend
herself and her husband after both were arrested
Sunday for resisting an officer, possession of mar-
ijuana and possession of narcotic equipment.
According to reports, deputies went to 2004
Andalusia St. shortly after midnight in response to
a 911 hang-up. They made contact with Jennifer
Pineiro, who is listed on the arrest report as a pub-
lic defender for Marion Moorman, at the front
door, but she was "uncooperative in providing
information" about the hang-up.
Her husband, Jesus Pineiro, also came to the
door and was asked to step outside for questioning.
Jennifer Pineiro, 51, blocked the front door and
said that she knew her rights and that "they were
not coming out and we were not going in,"
deputies said.
One of the deputies noticed blood on Jesus
Pineiro's hand and foot, and told Jennifer Pineiro
that the deputies needed to talk to her and her hus-


band separately.
She continued to block the door,
the report said, so two deputies
S physically removed her from the
doorway and took her outside.
Jennifer Pineiro reportedly told
deputies "Do you know who I am?
Jennifer I'm a public defender" and that
Pineiro they had no right to detain her. She
also reportedly kept interfering
with their investigation by inter-
rupting them when they tried to
question her husband trying to give
him legal advice.
During questioning, deputies
reported seeing blood on Jennifer
Jesus Pineiro's clothes and smelling alco-
Pineiro hol on her person.
They also reported that she kept
trying to walk away from the deputy questioning
her and toward the deputies questioning her hus-
band, who had their backs turned to her.


Despite being warned not to approach the
deputies, she reportedly did it again and was taken
into custody for resisting an officer.
After his wife was placed in the back of a patrol
car, Jesus Pineiro, 33, was asked for his ID.
Deputies said he walked into the house and tried to
shut the door on the deputies, but one of them put
his foot in the door to stop it.
At that point, deputies report, Jesus Pineiro
pushed one of the deputies in the chest and began
resisting. He was also taken into custody.
The trouble was just beginning for the couple,
however. While inside the home, deputies saw
"several smoking pipes, cannabis seed and
cannabis leaves located in plain view in the
kitchen, dining room and living area," the report
said.
Both Jennifer and Jesus Pineiro were charged
with resisting an officer, misdemeanor marijuana
possession and possession of narcotic equipment.
Jesus Pineiro was also charged with battery on a
law enforcement officer.

LAKE PLACID A
shooting victim was cleared
of critical status Tuesday
afternoon after being shot in
the back with a 12-gauge
shotgun.
Kevin Brown, 20, of Lake
Placid, was charged with pre-
meditated attempted murder
of Abraham
Hernandez,
his neighbor.
The men
live on South
Main Street in
Lake Placid.
Reports
Brown indicated the
shooting, reported at 9:38
p.m. Sunday, occurred at
Brown's residence in the JFK
Trailer Park after a verbal and
physical altercation between
the two men.
After he was shot,
Hernandez went home, where
his wife heard him moaning
in pain on the front patio, a
press release from Lake
Placid Police Department
Chief Phil Williams said.
The victim was airlifted to
a medical facility in Ft. Myers
in critical condition.
"He is awake now," LPPD


Detective James Fansler said
Tuesday. "Things are looking
a little better for him."
The victim was able to give
a brief statement to LPPD
Officer Eddie San Miguel
before being airlifted,
describing Brown as the per-
son who shot him, Williams
said. Brown was arrested near
the shooting scene after
approaching Highlands
County deputies. He was
booked into the Highlands


County jail at 2:06 a.m.
Monday morning.
Fansler said there are wit-
nesses and they are cooperat-
ing with police officials.
"We have several people
we are talking with for addi-
tional facts in the case," he
said.
Brown had his first appear-
ance Tuesday morning in
front of Circuit Judge Angela
Cowden, who ordered he be
held without bond.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


The election is over ... it's time to work together


Yesterday marked the end of a long, bruising, cutting, even at
times mean spirited and nasty, election season and not just on
the national level. Some of our local races were every bit as neg-
ative, divisive and hateful.


No one here can remember such a toxic political
battlefield, or such a pitched battle.
But the election is over now.
Repeat that please: The election is over.
And no matter who has emerged as the leader of
our nation, we will only succeed if we work as a
team.
We'd do well to take a collective breath, clear the
debris, roll up our sleeves, and get to work.
So, burn the yard signs and bury the hatchet; put
the T-shirts in the attic or rag bin: and clear your
head, because the time has come to move on.
But we have to do more than just move on. We
must find a way to move on together.




\X\ '; Yvo


Now is the time to look for gates in the fences and
walls low enough to lean across.
Whoever leads us as of this morning, John
McCain or Barack Obama, needs us to do more than
not get in the way he needs us to join hands.
It is the country first now.
Which means we will have to work at trusting
each other, keeping open minds and finding a mid-
dle ground.
The simple truth is, if we don't learn how to co-
exist among ourselves within this wonderful nation,
there is little hope for the rest of the world.
But we can live together and thrive. The future
can evolve into a time of prosperity, advancement


and peace.
We have to work at it is all.
Our problems are simply too large and too all
encompassing for us to be fighting amongst our-
selves which is just what our enemies want, by
the way.
Our future requires attention and sacrifice from
all of us equally.
We need to remember that we are up to this we
have the courage, we can gather the wisdom, we
certainly have the will to succeed.
What comes next will depend on each of us as
individuals.
Each of us helps when we use respectful lan-
guage, believe our neighbor is as patriotic as our-
self, and that we all want a better world for our chil-
dren.
After two years of turmoil and argument now
comes the exciting part actually getting things
done.
Let's get down to it.

TODAY'S LETTERS


Cheap way to avoid
analysis and criticism
Editor:
I am frankly mystified at the end-
less palaver concerning the surge,
which according to my recollections
was an infusion of some 25,000
additional troops into Iraq last year.
Such a decision was not a change'in
tactics nor certainly not a new strat-
egy yet it is currently a subject of
political debate as if such a decision
was a stroke of military genius as to
warrant a complete rewrite of the
curriculum at West Point.
Surely using more soldiers to do
more of the same thing with more
emphasis had some foreseeable con-
sequences, but the current crowing
about it at least baffling.
Whether the "surge" was a late
blooming recognition of the correct-
ness of General Shinshecki's opin-
ion that our forces were greatly
undermanned from the beginning,
and the root cause of why things
had gone badly for so long, or an
inspired decision to provide a push
to improve our military posture and
at the same time motivate the Iraqis
to move toward a reconciliation of
their differences is largely academic.
The latest spin on this issue is to
characterize any suggestion that the
surge was anything less than bril-
liant is to disparage the sacrifice of
our troops and is fundamentally
unpatriotic. What a cheap way to
avoid analysis and criticism.
The Iraqis will solve their politi-
cal differences at their own speed,
irrespective of the numbers of
American troops present. The big
issue for the Americans to come to
grips with is whether we will con-
trol conditions on the ground or let
circumstances dictate our posture. It
seems clear that decisive leadership
compels the former.

Editor's note: The following letters
deal with political issues and candi-
dates. It is the News-Sun's policy to
not print such letters during the two
weeks prior to an election.

Corporations should not
ask for freebies
Editor:
After seeing the realities of
Barack Obama and his earmarks and
acorn committee for misuse of the
system, I am convinced John
McCain is the better man for Main
Street America. To know that 20
percent recipients of the bail-out
plan are not in line with a man that's
for change. If another example of
how things are wrong in the system,


then look at the Bank President that
was in office only three weeks
before the doors closed and he
received a $60 million severance
pay.
When businesses fold, executives
do not deserve anything. When
Chrysler Corporation got bailed out,
they paid back the loan and also
interest. Look for more Wall Street
corporations to ask for freebies at
your hard working expense. Vote for
the best official or representative
and hope for the best, because
words and action are always differ-
ent in hindsight. Socialism was
brought here from Russia. New
money system is coming.
David A. Holland
Sebring

President does
not make the laws
Editor:
For those of you who criticize the
presidents) for the retrogressive and
deterioration of America, the presi-
dent does not make the laws. He can
only "suggest," "veto" or "sign"
them into law. Laws are passed by
Congress of which the last four dis-
astrous years has been Democrat
controlled. If elected, Democrat
Barack Obama would give them the
ultimate control. They would no
doubt concur with his every idea no
matter how un-American it may be.
Billie Goff
Avon Park

Presidential campaign
should not be so close
Editor:
It is astonishing, puzzling, mind-
boggling that this presidential cam-
paign remains so close. After eight
years of the most disastrous, cata-
strophic administration in our coun-
try's history, almost half of the citi-
zens are still uncertain about whom
to vote for.
President Bush and Vice President
Cheney have violated dozens of
laws and the Constitution, but have
not been held accountable and some
are questioning Senator Obama?
Governor Palin wants to be another
Vice President Cheney. Senator
McCain has supported Bush's poli-
cies over 90 percent. Please recall
the beginning of the Bush term: He
was floundering because of the way
he won. We were constantly remind-
ed how involved and up-to-date
Pres. Bush was on national affairs.
He was a hands-on president. He
was a compassionate conservative.
He and Republican Congress did
many things in secret. They too'.
Senator Liebeman's Patriotic and
National Security proposals, re-


wrote them behind closed doors and
required to the Democrats to vote
for them in the dark: a number of
bad elements were later deleted. A
Republican Brain Trust already had
a plan to invade Iraq, a country that
had nothing to do with September
11, 2001. Now Afghanistan is a dis-
aster. Pakistan is a dilemma and Iraq
will require troops indefinitely. Iraq
has now cost $1.5 trillion, with $10
billion more a month until 2010.
The economy was a problem from
the start because of the way Pres.
Bush won. It was floundering until
Sept. 11,2001 and after. I had pro-
vided a 100-year history of the
working people in this country.
There are at least 10 examples of
how Big Business and Corporations
had created huge problems and how
the taxpayers paid the bill, leaving
corporations off the hook. The
Savings & Loan and Junk Bond
episodes are clear examples. The
Enron debacle in 2000-01 was the
latest. After each of those "inci-
dents," new laws and regulations
were passed to insure it would not
happen again. Guess what? More
people lost their jobs, pensions,
health and insurance.
In the meantime, working people
continued to get the short end of the
stick. They had fought bitter, bloody
battles to achieve a "piece of the
pie." Finally, by World War II, they
enjoyed an era of prosperity until
1985. With the beginning of out-
sourcing jobs offshore, the $15-$35
an hour jobs went too. Some 20 mil-
lion illegals entered the country to
compete for the remaining jobs,
meaning $5-$10 an hour. As a
result, some five million jobs were
lost; there are nearly 10 million
people without jobs today, with
nearly 800,000 lost since January
2008.
After Sept. 11, 2001 the whole
country was behind President Bush.
Whatever he wanted, he got, no
questions asked. If anyone balked,
he got the treatment. Remember the
"Hammer?" They got to the dis-
senters! The Republicans have con-
trolled Congress since 1994. The
argument the Democrats controlled
Congress since 2006 is false.
Nothing gets through the Senate
without Republican approval
because 60 votes are required and
the veto. Even the bailout bill
required $150 billion in "sweeten-
ers!" Has Main Street been bailed
out? Who knows? Main Street-regu-
lar folks are worried. The middle
class is disappearing before our very
eyes!
Make no doubt about it: Unions
helped to create a prosperous middle
class. Most of the people in this


democracy, with the American
Dream, could improve their lot in
life and prosper. They did just that,
until 1985. Again, please recall how
the term "entrepreneur" became the
"in" word. People had to rely on
themselves; they could not trust the
company; it was all one way. Temps
were in; full time and benefits were
out. Six month, one-year contracts
were in vogue.
Again, why is this campaign so
close?

Want the position, but
not for the money
Editor:
These are trying times! As a can-
didate for the State Legislature,
House of Representatives, I have
been very disappointed that the can-
didates for this important office
have not had ample opportunity to
discuss the issues in open forum that
are so important to the citizens of
this state and country and to express
their position on the issues as has
been provided to the candidates for
other offices in Highlands County.
Only two organizations,
Highlands County Voter League, the
newly created Highlands
Independent Political Action
Committee (HIPAC) and radio talk
show host, Barry Foster and our
three newspapers have offered such
opportunities.
I decided up front that I would
not try to compete with the hun-
dreds of thousands of dollars that
Denise Grimsley has taken from
more than 300 lobbyists and other
special interest groups, mostly given
at the maximum rate of $500 each. I
doubt that few citizens and voters
are aware of this practice and the
donor list which she inherited from
her predecessors and has expanded
upon. Her high-priced billboards,
other signs, multiple slick mail outs
and television ads are evident of this
obscene and extravagant use of lob-
byist and special interest money. I
would rather lose the election than
try to beat it. I don't take donations!
I pay!
I have decided that should I win, I
will donate my salary directly to the
University of Florida for the benefit
of a deserving veterinary student
from District 77, provided such stu-
dent would specialize in farm and
food animal medicine, public health
and food supply. There is a critical
need for such veterinarians in this
huge agricultural and food produc-
ing area....
In closing, I should say 1 am a
veteran of the United States Air


Force and the United States Weather
Service. I was born in Tallahassee.
My family has been a taxpayer in
Highlands County'for 50 years and az M
home owner for 40 years and inour .
residence for 20 years.
Elton J. "Dr. G."
Gissendanner D.V.M.
Candidate for State Rep.
Questions are legitimate
Editor:
Mary Wilson's campaign has
come under fire for "negative" cam-
paigning. We would like to point out
that never have we discussed any-
thing that was not campaign related
or anything that was not related to
Mr. Germaine's job performance.
We don't feel that just because an
issue shines a negative light on a
candidate that it is "negative" cam-
paigning.
Before you condemn Mary for
"negative" campaigning ask yourself
these questions: 1) Isn't it a legiti-
mate issue to discuss Mary's educa-
tion over that of Mr. Germaine? 2)
Isn't it a legitimate issue to discuss
that Mr. Germaine will be a double
dipper collecting more than $1mil-
lion in benefits paid for by the tax-
payers over the next four years?
Despite Mr. Germaine's claims,
Senator Mike.Fasano stated very
clearly on a local radio show recent- i
ly that Mr. Germaine would in fact
be a double dipper and that he
would be exactly the type of double
dipper that should be legislated out
of the DROP program? 3) Isn't it a 1
legitimate issue to discuss Mr. J
Germaine's association with a dis-
gruntled former county employee
who has harassed and attempted to
intimidate Mary during this cam-
paign? 4) Isn't it a legitimate issue
to discuss that 19 Clerk's employees
under Mr. Germaine's supervision
were found to be misusing the coun-
ty's instant messenger system and
that only one of those 19 were ever
disciplined? 5) Isn't it a legitimate
issue to discuss what Mr. Germaine
intends to do about two of his
employees, a cousin and a nephew,
who would have to be released from
their jobs at the clerk's office
because Florida law prohibits nepo-
tism?
Any reasonable person can see
that these are legitimate issues, cry-
ing for answers and are directly
related to Mr. Germaine's manage-
ment skills, job performance and
management judgment. It's time
Highlands County left behind elec-
tion entitlement and campaign
intimidation.

Benton uses software to

put public safety first


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County Sheriff Susan Benton
pioneered a unique informa-
tion-sharing system designed
to keep county residents safer
in their communities and offi-
cers safer on the job. In a
proactive approach to law
enforcement, Benton opened
the Highlands County Sheriff
Office's public safety data-
bases and consolidated its
dispatch and communication
systems for county-wide law
enforcement use.
The databases that track
warrants, arrest reports, jail
records, citations and other
critical information are acces-
sible to the police and fire
departments in Avon Park,
Sebring and Lake Placid as
well as the Highlands County
Emergency Operation Center
and Emergency Medical
Services. Now that county
agencies can take advantage
of shared records, vital data,
and centralized 911 dispatch-
ing capabilities, citizen calls
can be addressed faster and
more efficiently.
"Without this free flow of
information, law enforcement
authorities could pull over a
traffic offender and not be
aware of an outstanding war-
rant," said Jim Benson, CTS'
Chief Operating Officer.


"Sheriff Benton has taken a
leadership position in ensur-
ing data is accessible
throughout the county."
Benton's revolutionary
approach promotes a coopera-
tive relationship within the
public safety agencies of
Highlands County.
Collaborative relationships
between sheriffs' offices,
police departments and fire
agencies are often difficult to
achieve, but Benton's model
is a uniquely successful
example. Benton remains a
strong advocate for data shar-
ing and wishes to extend the
accessibility to other agencies
in the county and the state.
"We are in the early stages
of communications with state
agencies using SmartCOP
software in the Highlands
County area," said Benton.
"The Florida Highway Patrol
and the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Commission are both
using the same software and
the possibility exists to open
shared capabilities for all
agencies to view and retrieve
data from each other."
Full interoperability
includes not only radio com-
munications, but all data ele-
ments shared among agencies
to provide the upmost safety
to public servants for the
delivery of efficient services.

ELECTION 2008


I s ~ Signs, signs, everywhere


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
Romeo Edwards (left), 11, stands with his mom Chavalla Edwards on Tuesday. Edwards
gave thanks for Obama's candidacy, 'We hope he changes the world,' she said.


Black voters proud, excited


and nervous as they vote


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.coin
SEBRING Allen
Jackson voted early and for
Barack Obama, but he wasn't
counting any chickens. A
black man, he has been disap-
pointed in the past, and can't
quite believe anything has
changed.
"It's real hard to say," he
said, "but I just don't believe
he's going to win."
That didn't keep him from
walking his friend Jay Young
down to polling station No. 7
so he could vote, too. Young
said Obama gave him a new
sense of hope.
Jaquinta Massaline,
stopped as she left her polling
station, couldn't stop smiling.
"I'm a first-time voter," she


'I'm a first-time voter,
and I'm here because
of Obama Ifeel we
need a change.'

JAQUINTA MASSALINE
Voter

said, "and I'm here because
of Obama. I feel we need a
change."
While most voters were
adults arriving singly, there
were mothers who brought
their children along to live the
history of the day.
Chavalla Edwards was one
of those.
"We hope Obama changes
the world," she said as she
herded her two sons to their


car. She added that a lot of
people in her neighborhood
had turned out to vote.
Ronald, 8, and a student at
Fred Wild Elementary
School, said, "1 like Obama's
speeches." His brother
Romeo, 11, also a student at
Fred Wild, smiled shyly and
shook hands politely.
Edwards, who was another
individual who couldn't stop
smiling, said her sons told her
the students at Fred Wild had
conducted their own election,
and elected Obama earlier.
This year for the first time,
Edwards added, she believed
her candidate would be cho-
sen.
"We don't have to pray for
once," she said. "Victory is
ours."


signs ...

By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING -Everyday for
the last two years they have
grown, covering more and
more of the landscape.
They have filled the yards,
terraces and open spaces,
choking off the view and pro-
claiming their candidate in
bright vivid colors.
Now it's election day, and
they must go.
So, what happens to all
those signs after the election
is over?
Good question.
According to Avon Park
Code Enforcement Officer
Greg Warner, they have to be
removed.
"We don't have a specific
code for them here, but I
spoke with Norma Stokes of
the Highlands County
Supervisor of Elections
Office, and she said they
have to be removed within 30
days of the election," said
Warner.
But what do you do with
them after they come out of
the ground?
According to their Web
site, the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
is encouraging candidates for
political office and citizens to
recycle campaign signs at the
end of the election process.
Taking that much waste
paper and plastic out of land-
fills is a very ecological thing
to do, but not all counties
offer recycling without some
serious sorting, and
Highlands County does 'not
currently have a program
specific to recycling the old
signs, plastic or paper.


. but now what?


Newvs-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
The elections office says candidates have 30 days to make
sure their election signs are removed, but what to do with
them once their taken out of the ground?


So, we asked a few folks in
the area what they do. Here
are some of the answers:
A bonfire. A really, real-
ly big bonfire.
Do-it-yourself dog-
house.
Shields fQr the Knights
Templar re-enactment.
Bullet-proof vest.
Solomon's Castle II.
Extra evidence storage.
Signage for the next
yard sale.
Repairs to the. space
shuttle.
Skim board at the
beach.
Bottom of the bird cage.
Placemats for those
"special occasions".
Origami.


Save them for last-
minute school projects,
Makeshift hurricane
shutters.
Funny hats.
Target practice (espe-
cially if they are made into
funny hats).
Home shrine to your
favorite politician.
Roofing material.
Save it for that orice-in-
a-lifetime chance to actually
get to say to your neighbor,
"Here's your sign!"
Have an original idea of
your own about what to do
with those old campaign
signs? Go to the News-Sun
forums at http://www.news
sun.org/forum and let us
know.


Election day turnout reported to be slow but steady in county


SBy CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Checking in
at polling stations throughout
the day found conditions sim-
ilar around town.
The flow of voters was
slow and steady poll reporters
stated, refusing to speak in
specifics. Observation
showed people arriving one or
two at a time. Lines were rare.
At polling station No. 6,
Paul Tifft, on duty at the door
for the sheriff's office, said
there had been a briefly been
a line twice, but for the most
part the steady arrival of vot-
ers was easily accommodated.
"I haven't seen any trou-
"ble," Tifft said. "Everybody's
been happy."
One woman, who asked her
name not be used, arrived
slightly flustered. She left the
house she had misplaced her
driver's license and her hus-
band had teased her. "You
only had 18 months to get
ready," she said he told her.
Then, when she got to the
polling station and got inside,
she had to come right out
again because she had forgot-
ten her glasses in the car.
Most people were as excit-
ed as she was.
First-time voter Sarah
Cleveland couldn't wait to get
to the polls. She voted the
second day of early voting so
she could take an active part
election day.
She and her friend Karen
McKenna spent the afternoon
waving signs for John
McCain at the corner of


Sebring Parkway and Home
Ave. by the Masonic Lodge.
Nearby Mason Griffin, 6,
and his sister Lindsay, 9, were
waving signs for Jeff Carlson.
When asked why they sup-
ported Carlson, Mason said,
"Because he's our friend."
The Griffins weren't the'
only young people excited
about being involved.
A group of eight Sebring
High School students took off
after third period to cheer on
Sheriff Susan Benton.
Standing on the corner of
Lakeview Drive and
Kenilworth Boulevard, they
provided the kind of high-
energy enthusiasm only
teenagers can muster.
Alternating with sign slaps,
friendly yells and even man-
aging the occasional football
type wave, they teased honks
out of many drivers.
"Susan deserves this more
than anyone; she had such a
good first term," Rebekah
Wahlgerner said. "She
deserves a second term."
Emily Hendeges agreed,
adding, "She is known for her
hard work and for caring
about the community hav-
ing come up through the ranks
and being from here. Also she
has kids of her own and
understands and cares about
young people."
Robert Gilbert was the only
one of the group old enough
to vote, and he already had.
He said he was helping
because, "It's a fun thing to
do, and hopefully we'll get


some young people to vote."

students, at the Elks Lodge

ELECTION 2008


What happens to unused campaign funds? It depends


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridgec@newssuin.coimn
SEBRING The elections are in full swing
across the country, and candidates are still out
in force trying to sway those last few undecid-
ed Americans and spending large amounts to
do so.
But some folks are beginning to look for-
ward to what happens after the polls are
closed, and in particular, some may ask, what
happens to those unused campaign funds?
If a candidate has run their campaign effec-
tively, there should not be a lot left over.


Would-be office seekers should have spent
the lion's share of it on advertising, media
spots, signage, etc.
But if money is left in the campaign coffers,
candidates must, by law, dispose of those
funds.
The disposal of campaign funds vary from
state to state, and the Federal government has
a whole different set of laws, but here in
Florida, local government candidates have 90
days to dump those unused funds, and several
options they may exercise.
The candidate may return funds to contribu-


tors, pro rata of course.
Refuinded money can also be donated to a
eligible 501(c)(3) charity of the candidate's
choice.
They can also dispose of the funds by giving
up to $10,000 to their political party, or up to
$30,000 if they arc in a senate race.
And candidates can pay themselves back for
an contributions they made to themselves,
especially if they come up on the short side of
the vote.
If a candidate is elected, they may do the
same but they can also create an "office"


account where the money can be spent on
things for the office that would not normally
be provided by taxpayer money.
For state-wide candidates, win, lose, or
draw, they may roll the moneyover into an
account for the next time they run for state-
wide office.
If the candidate was running for a federal
office, such as a presidential bid, and if they
are sitting senators or congressmen, they can
roll the money over into their re-election war
chest.

In the county elections office, technician Matt Byrd (left), Beverly Dorsey (center) and
Deputy Supervisor of Elections Karen Kensinger take a look at the election results on the
computer in order to answer a phone call as the last of the ballots were tallied Tuesday
night. Even with a few modem failures, precinct three and nine having to be hand counted
because of phone line issues and precinct 17 at the American Legion building in Lake Placid
being slow to respond because someone accidentally locked the office where the communica-
tions were to be handled, election results were available earlier this year than ever before.

Grimsley, Rooney cruise to wins


Continued from page 1A
their voices heard at one point
or another in Tuesday's elec-
tion, according to the
Highlands County Supervisor
of Elections office.
Highlands County voters
favored John McCain as their
Choice for president, but it
was Barack Obama who was
declared the 44th President of
the United States at about 11
p.m. Tuesday.
With all but the one touch
screen accounted for in
Highlands County, McCain
led 25,903 to Obama's
17,913.
As for the state races,
Highlands County was more
than willing to send Denise
Grimsley back to the State
Representative, District 77
seat. She led Highlands
County with 25,481 to Elton
J. "Dr. G." Gissendanner's
11,878 votes.
"I have to thank the people
who supported me. Any race
is difficult. You have to get
the word out, and most impor-
tant help people understand
you care about them,"
Grimsley said.
"Daily, I look for weak-
nesses and ways to improve,
but the the longer you stay in
the legislature the better you
get at understanding the sys-
tem. Our biggest challenge by
far this next year is creating a


budget with an unprecedented
reduction in revenues.
Generally appropriations are
done broadly, but this year we
are going to have to drill
down into the base.
"For example, there are
(out-of-date) pet projects,
some created by legislators no
longer in office, overlooked
and still funded. By drilling
deep into the base we'll be
able to fix that.
"I love doing this job, and
again, I thank the people who
supported me."
In the State Senator,
District 17 race, J.D.
Alexander returns to his seat,
leading over Scott Thompson,
25,677 to 16,212 in Highlands
County.
Alexander was overwhelm-
ingly re-elected to Senate
District 17, which includes
Highlands and Hardee coun-
ties, as well as parts of
DeSoto, Glades, St. Lucie,
Okeechobee, and Polk coun-
ties. According to the
Election Night Web site for
the Florida Department of
State, Alexander had 103,010,
or 59 percent to Thompson's
71,121, or 41 percent.
"I thank the voters of
District 17 and Florida's
Heartland for their support
and for their confidence in
me," Alexander said.
"Tonight's victory confirms


my belief that our district is
on the right path and that
despite economic uncertainty.
the voters are optimistic about
the future. I am proud of our
district and its accomplish-
ments and am excited to
return to Tallahassee to con-
tinue to flight for our needs
and our communities."
Alexander was first elected
to the Florida Senate in 2002
and has been subsequently re-
elected. Prior to being elected
to the Florida Senate,
Alexander served four years
in the Florida House of
Representatives.
Tim Mahoney finds himself
voted off the Representative
in Congress, District 16 seat
this morning. His 15,679
votes put him behind Tom
Rooney's 26,827 in Highlands
County. The rest of the dis-
trict which includes part or
all of Charlotte, Glades,
Hendry, Martin, Okeechobee,
Palm Beach and St. Lucie
counties followed suit.
Democrats targeted more
U.S. House seats in Florida
than in any other state but
lost the one Mahoney picked
up in the wake of former
Republican Rep. Mark
Foley's page scandal two
years go. Mahoney admitted a
month before the election to
at least two affairs.


Germaine wins Clerk of Courts election


Continued from page 1A
ment from office. Both candidates are senior
members of the clerk's staff. Germaine was
senior director of court services, and Wilson
head. of the auditing division.
Unfortunately, like some family affairs, this
race was hotly contested with the debate at
times going negative and personal.
For example, at one point Wilson argued


that Germane would be double dipping if
elected to office, because he would retire from
his staff position and be receiving a pension
from that career as he pulled down a salary as
clerk of courts if elected.
Germaine raised $37,290 for the race, of
which he had spent $17,539 by Oct. 30.
Wilson raised $9,623, the bulk of which she
had spent by the same time.
Wilson could not be reached for comment.

ELECTION 2008

my work. I am very pleased
with the outcome and I'm
looking forward to four more
years of hard work," Maxcy
said.
"I have a few projects I
need to finish, and I am happy
that I am going to get that
chance."
In the District 3 race,
Republican Jeff Carlson cap-
tured the lion's share of the
voters in totaling 24,706 or
59.44 percent.
His opponent, local Realtor
and Democrat Jeri Canale,
gathered in 16,858 (40.56
percent) of the 44,844 votes.
"It was disappointing, but
we are OK. I met so many
friends this go-around, but we
were just not on the winning
side," said Canale in a phone
interview after the results
were published.
"It was a good race, and I
feel this was a positive expe-
rience. I am grateful for all
those friends and family who
worked so hard.
"We had a lot of votes. I
may try again the next elec-
tion. We will just have to
work harder to win a few
more over the next time," she
added.
Carlson, who will serve his
first term as commissioner
after nine years as a Sebring
City Councilman, was elated.

Scott Noethlich (from left) and Bob Swaine look on Tuesday
night as newly elected Highlands County Commissioner Jeff
Carlson shakes hands with Tom Griffin during a post-elec-
tion celebration party at the Blue Crab in Sebring.


"It feels awesome. I know
that is probably a cliche, but it
really does feel awesome after
over a year of campaigning to
have it end up
like this. It
was a tiring
,. campaign, but
I am excited
to start my
new position
as commis-
Maxcy sioner," he
said.
"I think it will be a lot like
serving the city we put
forth some of the same princi-
ples but on a larger scale.
It is going to be tough,
though, and we have some
tough times ahead as we try to


decide which are the essential
services with less and less
funds.
I am going to do my best
to make this as painless as
possible, but it is going to
take some work," he said.
"I would like to thank all of
the friends and family who
helped out. It was hard work
for them to stand outside at a
dozen different polling
places.
"I think the kids helped a
lot, especially my daughter.
One voter stopped and said
that they decided to vote for
me because my daughter was
doing cartwheels for us. That
makes you fell good," added
Carlson.

Benton wins tough campaign to retain post as coun


Continued from page 1A
ran against Mike Brown four
years ago.
Adding to the difficulty this
time she was the incumbent,
and an easy target for criti-
cism.
"It was easy for my oppo-


nent to see any weakness I
personally or the agency
might have experienced over
the last four years," she said.
"I pretty much resolved
myself to stay focused on the
positive and the great work
the men and women of the
sheriff's office do."


Benton plans to use
Grimming's criticism to
strengthen the sheriff's office.
"I think the perception was
put out there [that] we didn't
include the community in
decision making," Benton
said. "The truth is the office
belongs to the people I've


always wanted to be transpar-
ent. We work hard on that and
we will work harder on it."
Grimming said he ran a
good race he feels proud of,
one where he stuck to the
issues specifically related to
the sheriff's office.
"I think that's how we cam-


paigned and that's how the
sheriff campaigned," he said.
"I think that we had a chance
to discuss and raise what we
believe were the important
issues."
When the members of
Benton's campaign watch
party were told the news of


ty sheriff
her victory, they called for a
speech.
"I just want to thank every-
body for trusting me to serve
them," she said. "My commit-
ment is to continue to serve
with everything I know how
to do."

Sebring's Lee, Huter awarded Legion


of Merit at National FFA Convention


Special to the News-Sun
INDIANAPOLIS Gary
Lee and Jerry Huter (posthu-
mously) of the Sebring FFA
Alumni affiliate of Sebring
has each been awarded the
Legion of Merit Citation of
the 16th time. Only three
citations were awarded to
Florida alumni members.
The recognition was made
during the 37th annual
National FFA Alumni
Convention held in conjunc-
tion with the 81st National
FFA Convention in
Indianapolis, Oct. 22-25,
2008. More than 54,000
FFA members, FFA Alumni
and guests attended the con-
vention which is one of the
world's largest annual youth
conventions.
In order to receive the
citation recipients must be
proven leaders in encourag-
ing membership in their local
FFA Alumni affiliates.
Sebring annually ranks in the
top five among Florida affil-
iates and ended the Aug. 31,
2008, year with 88 members.
Lee and Huter's efforts have
developed unified support
and service for agricultural
education.
FFA Alumni affiliates have


been formed to operate in
support of FFA chapters all
across the nation. The
Sebring affiliate was char-
tered in 1987, with both men
among its charter members.
Huter was initially elected
president of the Sebring
affiliate in 1992 and was re-
elected for 17 consecutive
years prior to his untimely
death in June 2008. Lee has
served as secretary since the
affiliate was chartered.
Additionally, Lee has been
active in the Florida FFA
Alumni Association for
many years.
Lee announced that a
memorial scholarship has
been established by the
Sebring affiliate to honor the
memory of Huter.
While in Indianapolis, Lee
received a Silver Emblem
award for Sebring's
Outstanding Alumni
Relations application. Only
one other award was
received by a Florida affili-
ate, which was Suwannee,
named the top affiliate in the
nation for 2007-08.
The National FFA Alumni
Association is an organiza-
tion of more than 46,000
active members. The mission

of the National FFA Alumni
Association is to secure the

tural education by creating

ence, business and technolo-
gy of agriculture with 7,358

This will also allow the
acceptance of more students
from the waiting list to enroll
in the program.
Florida is suffering from a
shortage of nurses.
The funds from the VA will
be used to establish the VA
Nursing Academy within the
Nursing College, which allows
USF and the nearby James A.
Haley Veterans' Hospital to
hire an additional five faculty
members.


Competition for admission
into USF's nursing program
has been heightened because
the College of Nursing lacks
enough qualified nursing fac-
ulty members to meet the
needs of the students waiting
to enroll.
With this new grant, and the
additional instructors, the col-
lege anticipates 100 new nurs-
es can graduate from USF with
a bachelor's degree within the
next four years, according to
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor.
Local students wishing to
apply for the nursing program,
and need financial assistance
should contact Ray Ploughe
with the 40 et 8 V-863,
American Legion Post 25 in
Lake Placid.

Career Academy junior Tim Newsom explains some of the concepts he is learning in his
computer electronic courses to Courtney Green, coordinator, SFCC Tech Prep/Vocational
and Dual Enrollment.


Career Academy at SFCC


off to a successful start


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Judging
from grades, test scores, and
attendance records in the first
nine weeks of the academic
year, the 63 students enrolled
in The Career Academy at
South Florida Community
College are finding success.
"There has been a period of
adjustment, but overall
they're very happy," said
Doug Thoburn, district coor-
dinator, Career and Technical
Education, School Board of
Highlands County.
Located at the SFCC
Highlands Campus, the
Career Academy is a partner-
ship between the college and
the School Board of
Highlands County.
The academy's 10th-, 11th-
,and 12th-graders divide their
school day between high
school academic classes and
college-level technical cours-
es offered by the SFCC
Division of Applied Sciences
and Technologies. While they
earn their high school diplo-
mas, they also train to become
drafters, automotive and auto
body repair technicians, com-
puter electronics and net-
working technicians, medical
and administrative secre-
taries, and culinary artists.
Since the Career Academy
opened in August, the first
enrollees have significantly
improved their grade point
averages (GPAs) from an
average of 2.2 at the start of
the school year to over 3.0
today, Thoburn said. At the
same time, absenteeism and
discipline problems have been
virtually non-existent.
Career Academy staff point
to several factors for this
early success. One is small
class sizes, ranging from 15-
21 students. "This is absolute-
ly vital to this environment,"
English teacher Lacy Carlton
said. "It allows me to provide
more individualized instruc-
tion and work with small
groups."
Sharot Pearson, the acade-
my's reading instructor, said
that while most young people
want to be a part of some-
thing, Career Academy stu-
dents are finding that "some-
thing" in their technical pro-

Local resident enrolls
at Tufts University
Special to the News-Sun
MEDFORD, Mass. In
September more than 1,300
undergraduate students from
43 different states and 33
nations began their first year
at Tufts University, located in
Medford/Somerville, Mass.
Among these students is
Mary Midence of Sebring.
"Drawn from 15,642 can-
didates for admission the
largest pool in the
University's history the
1,303 members of the Class
of 2012 are an exciting col-
lection of academic and per-
sonal achievement," said Lee
Coffin, dean of undergradu-
ate admissions.
Founded in 1852, Tufts
University is recognized
among the premier universi-
ties in the United States.


grams. As they realize how
important reading, writing,
and math skills will be to their
future careers, they are
becoming more serious about
their academic classes.
"Many of these students
didn't think reading mat-
tered," Pearson said. "Then,
they went to auto body repair
classes and got a textbook
that was 2 inches thick. All of
a sudden, guys who thought,
'I'm just going to work on
cars for a living,' saw the
importance of being able to
read well."
In just nine weeks, Pearson
has seen some students make
dramatic improvements in
their reading skills, in some
cases by as much as three
grade levels. Many are con-
tinuing their studies in their
spare time, which contributes
to their success.
Absenteeism has not been a
problem either, Thoburn
noted, largely because they
are required to adhere to the
college's stringent attendance
requirements to stay in their
technical classes. "They want
to be in these programs,"
Thoburn said. "This is moti-
vating them to come to school
every day."
Moreover, being part of a
small group of high school
students on an adult-centered
college campus minimizes the
distractions of the social dra-
mas that tend to be a part of
teenage life. "It's great to see
Sebring students hanging out
with Avon Park students and
becoming best friends,"
Thoburn said. "They have
blended together very well."
Courtney Green, coordina-
tor, SFCC Tech
Prep/Vocational and Dual
Enrollment, is impressed with


the level of dedication Career
Academy students are making
to their education. "One stu-
dent wants to be a musician,
and he is studying computer
electronics," Green said. "He
realizes most music is pro-
duced electronically these
days, and he wants to be able
to maintain and repair his own
computers. Another student is
studying automotive repair
because he wants to be a race
car driver. I'm amazed by the
foresight these students pos-
sess at this stage in their
lives."
"I think the Career
Academy is a lot better than
other schools I attended," said
senior Joshua Rodgers, who is
enrolled in the Air
Conditioning, Refrigeration,
and Heating Technology pro-
gram. "The teaching is more
interactive. We get more one-
on-one instruction. This helps
us a lot. In the air condition-
ing/refrigeration classes, our
instructor treats us like he
would if we were going to a
real job. He tells us if we're
tardy we'll pay for it, like we
would on a real job."
"I really do like it here,"
said junior Tim Newsom, who
is studying computer elec-
tronics. "This was a good
opportunity for me free col-
lege. But everybody here has
to be an adult, too. Students
have the opportunity to go
where they want to go. I've
told my friends to come
here."
"It's going extremely well,"
said Kevin Brown, dean,
SFCC Division of Applied
Sciences and Technologies.
"We all realize that this acad-
emy program is changing the
lives of these students in a
positive way."

It's easy to feel as if the world has closed in around you when you're
affected by a loss of hearing. Everyday conversation can seem grainy, less
focused and awkward as natural speech and sounds become
harder to comprehend. Delta is the innovative new hearing device
that helps you break out of the isolation to improve your scope of under-
standing, so you can converse more confidently and more
comfortably with others.
High-tech Artificial Intelligence automatically adjusts
settings to enhance the quality of speech
Discreet triangular shape conveniently hides out-of-sight,
comfortably behind your ear
Choice of 17 attractive colors blend with skin or hair, or express
your own individual style
Wearing Delta is to gain an edge to help you hear with dramatic new
clarity. You can come out of your shell and participate in a whole new
world of people, places and opportunities.

Sebring
Recreation Club
By Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING Country
Swingers invite Sebring
Recreation Club members to
free beginners line dancing
lessons starting tonight from
5:15-6:15 p.m.; it's free for
beginners for the next eight
weeks. Questions? Call
Pauline Oliphant at 655-2398.
Or come to the club and ask in
person and see what we are all
about.
Highlands County tourna-
ment finds Ruth Parker and
Ann Eldridge winning. We had
a very poor turn out for this
tournament. John Bushee,
Gene Wolf, George Kisel,
Lowell Jones and Wally Davis
were all in the money. Some of
these people went to Saint
Cloud for their tournament
Oct. 30-31. S
bring is getting set for a
central district tournament
Thursday and Friday. If you
are not playing in this one, see
John to be a caller or to help in
any way. The club has to be set
up, courts set up, disc waxed.
Come and cheer somebody on
and get your lunch while you
are there.
Do you like to have your
partner check your disc to see
if it is good or not? Well get up
and check their disc for them
and show interest in the game.
Do not walk on the courts
please. To check a disc, step
out on the court but do not
walk back to your seat, by way
of the court. Use your cue to


reach the disc; do not go on the
court to get it. Give your oppo-
nent plenty of room to shoot;
do not hamper the shot. Sit
with your cue held vertical and
stand with it vertical when not
shooting. Do not play with the
disc when your opponent is
shooting. Be kind to your part-
ner and do not make a face
when they make a mistake, or
do not yell at them. Be nice to
your opponent with what you
say at all times, whether or not
you are winning or losing.
Have fun at this game even
when you lose, because most
of us lose more than we win.
Compete with yourself to do
even better with each shot, so
even when losing you may be
getting better.
Ask Ed what is news for the
club and see all that is going
on. Ask him all the questions
you can think of about the club
at 386-0245 and you will find
out. John Bushee has the
answers about shuffleboard
and also court care or disc
care. You will find him at the
courts a lot. He may even have
a bed by now at the club so he
can get a little rest. November
and the desk is open from 9
a.m. to noon Monday-Friday.
Stop by with dues, ask ques-
tions, or just catch up on
things. Friday are real good
for Marilyn Wile to answer
questions.
This is the time to congratu-
late her on shuffling also. Carl
will be at the club also and you
may get hints from him on
shuffling. We're at 333
Pomegranate Ave. (in back of
the Sebring Police Station).

Washington named Kentucky Colonel


Continued from page 3B
Laura Bush, President Lyndon
B. Johnson, English Prime
Minister Winston Churchill,
astronaught John Glenn, golfer
Tiger Woods, and actress Carol
Channing.
In receiving this honor from
present Governor Steven L.
Beshear, Washington, a retired
school teacher from
Pennsylvania, was cited for
having promoted education by
serving as a volunteer tutor at a
local home for unwed mothers
and in the GED program. She
also assisted as a volunteer
when the South Florida
Community College opened a
satellite campus in Lake Placid.
As a member of the Friends
of Heartland Health, a civic
organization dedicated to the
promotion of the Lake Placid
Medical Center, her efforts in
fund raising proved great fun as
she helped coordinate a country
western show. Approximately
2,000 people from other civic
organizations joined in to make
the fundraiser a huge success.
At the same time, she was
president of the Women of the
Presbyterian Church, carrying
out extensive local and foreign


missions programs of that
organization.
As a member of the
Highlands County
Homeowners Executive Board,
she worked for better local gov-
ernment. Her interests also
encompassed the Lake Placid
Historical Society, The Lake
Placid Woman's Club, and The
Garden Club. She worked with
the Audubon Society to obtain
funds to purchase land for the
expansion of Highland
Hammock State Park.
For many years she and her


husband Charlie helped cook
for the frozen meal program
supervised by Betty True.
When the board of county com-
missioners were deciding
whether to approve the applica-
tion for a mall in Sebring,
Washington organized a large
contingent of townspeople who
attended the commission meet-
ing in favor of the proposal,
helping to secure the mall for
the county.
Washington currently resides
at The Palms in Sebring.

Crusaders step forward in Fassler's first campaign


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.cont
SEBRING As first sea-
son's go, you could do a lot
worse than what Shannon
Fassler's initial campaign at
the helm of the Heartland
Christian volleyball team.
For the former Sebring and
Polk Community College
standout, the accomplishment
of the season was one thing,
making the transition from
player to coach was another
altogether.
"It really is a tough transi-
tion to make," she said.
"There are still times where
the player instinct kicks in
and I want to hop up off the
bench and get in there
myself."
She was able to reign her-
self ino the coaching role,
imparting her knowledge of
the game to a Lady Crusader
team that had just three wins
the season before.
"We really learned a lot,"


sophomore Carolyn
Cwalinski said. "Last year we
would just be lucky to get it
to our setter or over the net.
Now we're so much better in
passing, hitting, digging, how
to move on the floor."
But there were aspects of
the coaching role that caught
Fassler a little off guard.
"I've got to get better at
changing their mentality," she
said. "Teaching them how to
play is one thing, but it's a
mental game as well.
"We ended up beating City
of Life twice and they were
the team that won the dis-
trict," she continued. "But
against Victory, who had
beaten us twice, we were
mentally psyched out and did-
n't play up to our potential."
But, of course, the potential
of this team, as well as her
coaching ability, were seen
throughout the year as sure

Members of the Avon Park senior class pose for the cam-
era just before the start of the Pitchfork Games at Joe
Franza Stadium Tuesday afternoon. Each class sported a
different color team shirt during the week of festivities
before the Sebring match-up game against the Red Devils
football team in Avon Park on Friday.


Slow start plagues



Lady Dragons


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
News-Sun sportswriter
LAKE PLACID The Lake
Placid High School girls vol-
leyball were trying to do
something that they have
never done before win a
state playoff game.
The Green Dragons had
their shot in front of a rowdy
home crowd at the Green
Dragon gym as they faced off
with Melbourne Central
Catholic in the first round of
the class 3A state tourney.
With emotions running
high and the crowd into the
game, many Green Dragon
hopefuls were looking to see
history being made.
In the opening game Lake
Placid played tough over the
first couple of points but
couldn't find a rhythm as both
teams gave the ball back to
each other on side outs.
With the score knotted at
two, Melbourne Central
Catholic went on a tear as
they served nine consecutive
points before the Dragons
could make it back to the
service line.
Lake Placid tried to make a
contest out of the first game
but the Hustler front court put
an end to anything the
Dragons got going.


Down the stretch Lake
Placid had a glimpse of hope
thanks to big plays up front
by Sierra Weaver and
Kaneisha Hamilton, along
with some quality serving by
Julie Shrewsbury.
The Dragons effort came
too little, too late for the first:
game as they fell 25-16.
"We started out slow in the
first game and they got after
us," head coach Marilyn
Jones said. "All game long we
struggled passing to our set-
ter. The slow start really got
us but we battled back."
The Green Dragons weren't
quite ready to roll over and
call it quits as they fought
back in the second game
thanks to some impressive
serving by Hamilton that
helped Lake Placid build a 9-
0 lead Hamilton had two big
aces in that stretch.
As the second game went
back and forth with both
teams picking up a couple
points here or there, Lake
Placid was getting a big surge
from its front court as Kayla
Summerfield, Hamilton, and
Weaver pounded the ball for
big points.
Lake Placid got its big
break in the second game with
the score sitting at 17-9.

This is when Hamilton
went to work again from the
service line where she ham-
mered out two consecutive
aces to lengthen the Green
Dragon lead.
Solid team play led Lake
Placid to go on to win the sec-
ond game 25-14.
The third game of the
match saw the Dragons strug-
gle to put things together as
the squad seemed out of sorts.
During the game, the
Dragons were missing kills
that they had hammered to the
court a game earlier and were
missing on several serves.
The Dragons went on to
lose the third game 25-16,
going down two games in the
best-of-five match.
The final game of the
match saw the true will and
determination of the Dragons
squad, being tested as they
battled from a 6-2 deficit to
tie the game up at 10 thanks
to big plays from Tiffany
Bisbey, Ali Baker, and
Summerfield who stuffed the
Hustler front court.
With the score knotted at
10-10 the Hustler's began to
pull away little by little.
But the scrappy Green

Kaneisha Hamilton had a big night in her final appear-
ance in a Green Dragon uniform. But it wasn't quite
enough as Lake Placid fell in the regional quarterfinals
to Melbourne Central Catholic Tuesday night.

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

Hoehne 5:

Hot Stove,

Answers in

Detroit and I

told you so
The baseball offseason has
just begun and the various
team general managers
already have an eye toward
next year as the winter
meetings get underway.
Talk of the tough econom-
ic times are, of course, part
of the conversation as free
agents are seeking new deals.
Of course, this doesn't dis-
suade the free agents them-
selves, most of whom have
been in the big money long
enough to have become delu-
sional.
Manny Ramirez was quot-
ed as saying, "I want to see
who is the highest bidder.
Gas is up."
While it's actually down, I
find it hard to fathom that
he'd have trouble filling up
on his previous salary.
Fortunately, the likes of
Ramirez aren't necessary for
the runner-up Rays.
Loaded with young talent
that matured earlier than
expected, Tampa sitting pret-
ty right now.
The vast majority of the
roster is already under con-
tract, with few needs to
upgrade significantly.
Sure, Boston and New
York are flush with cash and
will be looking to throw it
around some likely causing
even more resentment among
the general public, consider-
ing the recession.
But my money, what little
of it there is, is that the Rays
are in contention to stay for
a while.
The big news in the early
days of the NBA season is
the blockbuster trade sending
Allen Iverson to Detroit in
exchange for Chauncey
Billups and Antonio
McDyess.
Kind of a nice deal for
Billups, since the contending
window for the Pistons
seems to be closing some-
what, and this gives the
Denver native a chance to
finish out his career back
home.
And while you'd think

LOOKING BACK

20 YEARS AGO
November 5, 1988: Locked into a tough battle with undefeated Cardinal Mooney, Avon Park ran wild
in the second half to clinch the District 6-2A championship. Up 14-7 at the half, the Red Devils scored
21 unanswered points over the final two quarters for the 35-7 win. Reggie Allen ran for 141 yards and
two touchdowns, including an 80-yard score on the first play from scrimmage, to join teammate Willie
English in the 1,000 yard club for the season.
20 YEARS AGO
November 4, 1988: It was closer than expected, the inching game of the District 12-2A champi-
onship, but the Lady Blue Streaks roared back from a 9-2 deficit to top Mulberry 15-10 to clinch the dis-
trict title for the second year in a row.Trailing the third-seeded Panthers by seven in the third game of
the match, Michelle Weed served Sebring to 11 straight points, giving the Streaks a 13-9 lead before they
closed out the win. With their record now 24-4 on the season, Sebring was set to host Palmetto in the
regional quarterfinals.

Didn't I tell you about Chad?


Continued from 1C
receiving the third-leading
points-per-game scorer in
NBA history would give
Detroit a boost, it doesn't
sound like the Piston players
are overly enthused to have
the trigger happy Iverson.
"Obviously we're all
shocked by the situation,"
forward Tayshaun Prince said
after the team topped
Charlotte without either
Billups or Iverson. "When
something happens like this .
it's tough for the team to go
out and play. We were able to
come out with a win."
Rasheed Wallace seconded
the less-than elated feeling.
"Do we like the trade?
Maybe not. Ain't no telling,"
he said.
Guess no parades are
scheduled.
But while it may be pre-
mature for.a parade in
Miami, you can't say things
aren't looking good for the
Dolphins.
OK, so they're 4-4, and
fourth in the four-team AFC
East.
But it's a stark difference
from last season, and with
the other three teams just one


game ahead of them, they
have every right to be opti-
mistic.
Especially with a weak
Seattle team coming to town
this weekend and Buffalo and
New England squaring off.
The Jets face a visiting St.
Louis Ram team that is much
improved, so some moving
up in the standings is quite
possible.
And while there are stand-
outs all over the place, how
about starting with the AFC's
second leading quarterback,
Mr. Chad Pennington.
I wrote in a column a
while ago that the Brett
Favre saga most improved
Miami, who landed
Pennington when the dust
was all settled.
I'm not one to say 'I told
you so,' since it's so rare that
I'm actually right about any-
thing.
But it's nice to be proven
right, and I'm sure the Miami
fans aren't too unsettled by
it.

Heartland turnaround sparks added interest


Continued from 1C
and steady progress was
made.
And a first-year coach
already picking up on what
she can do better is as good a
sign as any for the years to
come.
"We're losing two seniors
this year, which at most pro-
grams would be a good


thing," Fassler said. "But
Christie (Davis) and Caitlin
(Cwalinski) were such great
leaders for us, they will be
missed. It will be ihteiesting
to see who steps up to fill
those roles."
And with the turnaround
the team has had, the num-
bers of those stepping for-


ward will be increased.
"We already have fifth
graders, who will be able to
play next year, that are excit-
ed to come out," Fassler said.
"And we have some older
girls, who didn't play this
year, that saw the excitement
and the support who will
come out next year."


The excitement that
progress induces, paving the
way for ever more.
"We won as many games
as we lost this year, which
was my goal at the beginning
of the season," Fassler said.
"With how far we came,
maybe I should have set our
sights a little higher."


Dragons get first regional game win, but fall short in match


Continued from 1C
Dragon team refused to let
go as they battled back and
took the lead 20-19.
Despite the Green Dragon
rally, Melbourne Central
Catholic had a little bit more
left in the tank as they
reclaimed the lead and never
looked back beating the


Dragons 25-20.
"It's a shame that it has to
end. I thought we matched up
well with them but we didn't
play up to our standards,"
Jones said. "We had some
great play from Kaneisha
(Hamilton) tonight and in
game two she served nine


straight points for us."
Hamilton had a great game
for the Dragons as she fin-
ished with four aces and
eight kills in her final
appearance in a Lady Dragon
uniform.
Summerfield also had a
big night for the Dragons as


she totaled eight kills while
Shrewsbury closed out the
contest with two aces and 24
assists.
"We had a hard time focus-
ing I think," Hamilton com-
mented. "We played good in
the second game but just
couldn't get it done."

The Lake Placid faithful collectively hold up one finger, signifying game point as the Lady Dragons soon took the second
set of Tuesday night's regional matchup with Melbourne Central Catholic.
