Work has slowed considerably on Phase II of the Sebring Parkway, and the dates for Phase III are still up in
the air.

Work has slowed down on Phase II,

while start date of Phase III is in doubt


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING While the tentative
date for completion of Phase II of
the Sebring Parkway remains on
schedule, how it will be completed
is uncertain.
A lot of the construction to this
point has been done in house by the
county Road and Bridge
Department, but much of that
department has been allocated back
to resurfacing roads around the
county.
At one time there were 25 to 30
Road and Bridge employees work-
ing on Phase II, now there are five


or six, County Engineer Ramon
Gavarrete said.
"This covers construcuoln through
the Youth Care Lane intersection,"
he said. "There is future funding in a
few years, two or three years from
now, to complete construction south
to U.S. 27."
Commissioners talked Tuesday
about the lack of Road and Bridge
employees available to maintain
county roads.
"We didn't (resurface any roads)
last year, plus we are already into
this (budget) year," Commissioner
Barbara Stewart said in an interview
after the meeting. "We are looking


at the possibility of having the pri-
vate sector do the last portion of
Phase II of the parkway."
The last portion of Phase II runs
from Youth Care Lane to U.S. 27.
There are still a few factors, like
the railroad company installing a
new electronic switch and crossing
equipment on that stretch of road,
and. a few pieces of property still
need to be obtained.
The projected completion date is
still July of 2010, but county
employees are unsure if the funds
will be there to contract out the

Harris Center was opened
Tuesday to provide shelter
from first blast of winter
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING If predictions held,
Highlands County is waking up today to
bone chilling temperatures in the low
30s Fahrenheit, and a wind chill in the
20s.
Cold enough so that the Emergency
Operations Center opened the Bert J.
Harris Jr. Agricultural Center as an
emergency measure Tuesday evening to
be sure everyone in the county had
access to safe and warm shelter for the
night.
According to the advisory issued
Tuesday afternoon, a Canadian high
pressure air mass is filtering into the
region today on breezy northern winds
of between 10 and 15 miles an hour.
Those winds will shift northeast and fall
off to five to 10 mph in the afternoon,
-but the temperatures won't break out of
the 60s regardless.
Tonight expect patchy frost after mid-
night, with another night in the 30s,
chilled by a 5 mph wind.
The good news is, things should warm
slightly the rest of the week, with highs
in the 70s and lows in the 40s.
In the meantime, dress for the weath-
er. Experts say it is best to wear layers of
loose-fitting, lightweight, warm cloth-
ing.

Avon Park receives training grant for utilities workers


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK On a vote
of 4-0 the Avon Park City
Council approved the receipt
of a training grant from
Heartland Workforce during
its last meeting.
The $14,320 grant is
money given to Heartland
Workforce from state and fed-
eral agencies that encourage


the training of the next gener-
ation of utilities workers.
Heartland Workforce
administers the grants, and
has given the city until
September 2010 to take
advantage of the opportunity
to attend certain classes at
South Florida Community
College.
City employees have to
meet re-certification require-


ments on a regular basis, and
the grant is intended to ease
the costs that cities have to
pay to make that happen.
"It's a great opportunity for
the city," said Ted Long, Avon
Park Public Works supervisor.
"We are going to have to
pay for this anyhow, and this
saves us the budget, all we
have to do is take the train-
ing," Long added.


Heartland Workforce is a
non-profit organization whose
mission is to provide work-
force development related
growth opportunities to local
businesses and job seekers.
One concern expressed dur-
ing the meeting was by coun-
cilwoman Brenda Gray who
asked if the city was required
to match the grant with equal
dollars or in kind services.


Long, who with City
Manager Sarah Adelt applied
for the grant, informed the
council that the only match-
ing part of the grant was the
city's payroll because most of
the classes happened during
the day hours.
"Is this training going to
take place at night or during

Nelson leading people


up a difficult path

Through JASA, pastor and former alcoholic
helps inmates break cycle of addiction


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING With his neatly cut
hair and relaxed, but quietly self-con-
fident posture; wearing dress slacks,
an ironed blue shirt and a carefully
knotted tie, Charlie Nelson could be
anyone from an certified public
accountant to a school principal.
In fact, he is much more.
Nelson is a counselor and pastor.
Currently he works with the JASA
program in the Highlands County Jail.
JASA means Jail Alternative to
Substance Abuse. It is operated
through the Tri-County Human
Services Inc.
If ever a human being was guided
into a fulfilling life that gives back
more than it takes Nelson is that
man.


He was born and raised in the small
town of Centerville, Ind. A pretty
place, but slow paced and unexciting,
it was not the sort to send its sons and
daughters off to college.
Nelson went into the Marine Corps
in 1969 instead.
He took with him a drinking habit
that had started when he was 15, hav-
ing been passed down through his
father. Over time, the addiction cost
Nelson his first wife and their three
small children.
So ingrained was the habit of drink-
ing that even after accepting the Lord
in 1972, Nelson said, he continued to
get drunk, and later, in college at 25
when he did stop drinking, he contin-
ued in his addiction thought process,

while persistently pushing them to see the truth about their choices.

commends four
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.coni
AVON PARK The Avon Park City
Council took a few minutes out of their
busy schedule to appreciate those who have
performed an outstanding job, and even a
random act of kindness.
Ted Long, Public Works supervisor, read
a Letter of Commendation for Thomas
Yates, who performed, according to Long,
an act of kindness well outside the scope of
his duties.
"An 87-year-old woman had fallen in her
yard and needed assistance. To compound
the situation, it began to rain. By luck or
fate, you (Yates) happened by and noticed
the lady in distress," Long said. "You
helped her back onto her porch and waited
until her son arrived."
According to Long, the woman's son,
who was not identified, commented that
because of Yates' kindness, it gave him a
"warm and safe feeling to be a resident of
Avon Park."
"Thank you for your commitment to
making our city a safer place to live and
work, and for a job well done," Long said.
Additionally, Avon Park Police Chief
Matt Doughney recognized Alfred Hodge,
the working foreman for the Streets &
Sanitation Department.
An accident at U.S. 27 and State Road 64
at early one morning last August resulted in
not only a traffic issue, but fuel spilled and
created a biohazard as well.
According to Doughney, Hodge arrived
on the scene within minutes and immedi-
ately assisted in helping to secure the area.
"Due to your knowledge and experience,
not only did you help in making a safety
plan on the scene, but safely removed over
100 gallons of spilled diesel fuel."
Doughney presented a second award to
Detective Sgt. Jason Lister, who was
entrusted with the task of assisting the
sheriff's department in moving the commu-
nications from Avon Park to a centralized
dispatch.
Doughney stated that because of his
efforts, the daunting task was done "effi-
ciently and professionally."
Lister's wife Kelly and 4-year-old son
received the award because Lister was on
duty.
Also receiving commendations were
officers Alberto Perez and Adam Willis.
On Sunday, Sept. 7 Perez and Willis
noticed suspicious activity behind the All
Star Video at 1581 U.S. 27 North ..:.
Their proactive efforts resulted in the
arrest of three suspects before they could
rob the businesses in that plaza.

New commissioner takes his seat

Man jailed for violent purse snatching


News-Sun staff report
SEBRING A man who
claimed to be "homeless, hungry
and desperate" was arrested
Friday morning and charged with
snatching a woman's purse in the
parking lot of the Sebring Wal-
Mart and punching her in the face
in the process.
According to Sebring Police
Department reports, Timothy
James Stone, 28, who listed his
address on the booking sheet as
2106 Golden Age Villas in Avon
Park, approached the victim in
Row 8 of the parking lot around 2
a.m. and asked her for directions,
then asked her for a "couple of
dollars." She told him no.
Stone reportedly told police, he
"snapped" at that point and


grabbed the victim's purse. The
two struggled, pulling the pocket-
book back and forth, at which
point Stone allegedly punched the
victim in the face.
Stone denied
punching the vic-
el tim, but both the
victim and a wit-
ness said he did
strike her before
fleeing the area.
Police began
Stone
searching the area
around 1122 Melody Lane, which
is where Stone reportedly was
before he got a ride to Wal-Mart
from a friend. A K-9 track was
started from the point where a
baseball cap that fit the descrip-
tion of the one Stone was wearing


was located. The track led to an
area behind the Melody Lane
address, where police heard some-
one say "I am homeless, I just
sleep here" and saw a man, who
turned out to be Stone, lying on
the ground concealed in some
bushes.
Stone refused to comply with
several requests to come out from
the bushes, the report said, and the
K-9 officer Zeus had to be
employed to take him into cus-
tody.
He was taken to the Highlands
County Jail after a brief visit to the
emergency room.
Stone was charged with robbery
by sudden snatching (without
firearm), battery and resisting
arrest.

Drug sting

nets seven

arrests

News-Sun staff report
AVON PARK Seven
people were arrested Friday
during an undercover sting
set up in the Beachfront area,
which the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office reports is "a
high-crime area ... notorious
for its illegal drug activity
and violent crimes."
Four of those taken into
custody were charged with
cocaine-related felonies.
According to arrest
records, John Paul Doty, 36,
of Avon Park bought $40
worth of powder cocaine
from a deputy, while Scott
Patrick Lang, 40, of Sebring
bought $20 worth and
Edwardo Hernandez, 49, of
Avon Park bought $10 worth.
All three were charged
with purchasing cocaine and
possession of cocaine, both
felonies. Hernandez was also
charged with possession of
narcotic equipment, a misde-
meanor.
The fourth man arrested in
the operation was Jonathan
David Taylor, 37, of Avon
Park, who asked to buy $10
worth of cocaine, but didn't
like the amount and called off
the transaction. But a deputy
noticed what appeared to be a
small baggie of cocaine on
the front seat of Taylor's
vehicle, which led to a traffic
stop. Deputies reported that
they searched Taylor and his
car, finding one gram of
cocaine in a clear plastic bag
"concealed in his crotch."
Taylor was charged with
criminal conspiracy for the
attempted purchase of
cocaine as well as possession
of cocaine and possession of
narcotic equipment.

Unit 69 collects

phones for

veterans
Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK The Avon Park American
Legion Auxiliary Unit 69 under the direction
of Americanism Chairman Darlene Watkin
have started a military phone box to collect
old cell phones that will be sent in with min-
utes going to service personnel in the war
zone.
This collection of old cell phones is a way
to help young warriors reach home, at least
through the telephone, to loved ones in the
States.
The Ladies Auxiliary is also accepting
Christmas cards to the service person with a
calling card as a special gift to them for a
chance to speak to loved ones.
"Whatever way you choose to give to our
military this season will make you feel good
and make them feel even better," Watkin said.
Drop off cards or phones at Post 69 in Avon
Park within the week following Thanksgiving
to assure they get the minutes for the holi-
days.

VA travel reimbursement

increases for eligible veterans


By MARY MARGARET STAIK
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Dr. James B. Peake,
Secretary of Veterans Affairs, announced
recently that eligible veterans would see an
increase in the mileage reimbursement they
receive for travel to VA facilities for med-
ical care. The raise in mileage reimburse-
ment changes from 28.5 cents per mile to
41.5 cents for all eligible veterans.
Congress provided funding to VA, which
allowed for the increase in the mileage
reimbursement rate, which went into effect
on Nov. 17. Service connected disabled vet-
erans, veterans receiving VA pensions, and
certain veterans with low incomes are eligi-
ble for the reimbursement.
"Veterans have requested this increase
for quite some time," according to Joseph
A. Dionne, Highlands County Veteran
Services officer. Dionne attends many of
the veterans meetings around the county,
-and he has heard the request many times.
"The amount of .money allowed by the


VA for travel has not kept pace with the
economy and the fuel costs. Several veter-
ans have had to forego medical treatment
because of the rising cost of fuel. Even with
the reimbursement of 28.5 cents, they could
ill afford to go to the distant medical facili-
ties.
"The increase in mileage reimbursement
will enable these veterans to receive the
medical care they so need," Dionne said.
Dionne points out that until January, a
freeze will remain on the current deductible
amounts applied to certain mileage reim-
bursements. Currently, a one-way trip
deductible is $7.77; with a round-trip
deductible is $15.54, with a maximum of
$46.62 per calendar month.
However, on Jan. 9 a decrease in the

Thanksgiving

and Hope

Hospice bring

attention to

good life
At Thanksgiving, many
Americans express their
gratitude for the opportuni-
ty to live a good life. Even
people who are appropriate
for hospice care can share
that opportunity.
Recently a little child in
our care told us that if he
could do just one thing, it
would be to spend a day at
a theme park with his fami-
ly. For many, that would be
relatively easy. For others,
including this child's fami-
ly, it would be a major
undertaking, financially
and physically. We were
able to make it happen, and
for him, it was no ordinary
day at the park. It was a
very special, one-time-only
experience. Mom and Dad
did not take his laughter
and smiles for granted, and
they will cling lovingly to
that memory forever. We
helped the little boy and
his family to have a good
life. .
It is fitting that National
Hospice Month is observed
in November, at
Thanksgiving time.
President Bush has issued
a Proclamation stating,
"Americans believe that
every person has matchless
value throughout all of
life's stages. Our nation's
hospice caregivers lift up
souls, offer peace of mind,
and strengthen America's
culture of life."
Making people aware of
this is purpose of Natioral
Hospice Month. Everyone
in the community should
know about the care and
support available to them
through Hope.
Our mission is to pro-
vide exceptional care and
support to every individual
and their loved ones as
they fulfill life's journey.
Our care includes pain
management, symptom
control, emotional support,
and spiritual care as well
as medications and sup-
plies. The focus of care is
quality of life for each day,
making each moment count
and providing hope.
During National
Hospice Month and all
year long, we encourage
the community to be mind-
ful of this special care
available to everyone in
need, regardless of age,
type of illness, or ability to
pay.
Hospice care can be
provided for as long as
needed. In some cases, care
has continued for years.
Most people in hospice
care can remain in their
own home. Hospice
involves the family and
offers professional support
and training in caring for
their loved ones.
The Thanksgiving sea-
son is a good time to talk
with loved ones about liv-
ing a good life, even near
its end. Together, you can
plan for your future health
care needs and wishes, and
you can document your ,
instructions in the event
you become unable to
speak for yourself.
Advance Directives forms
are available on our Web
site at http://www.hope-
hcs .org/publications/
Hope also offers long-


term care programs for the
seriously ill who do not
require hospice.
To learn more about
how we can help, please
visit our Web site at
www.hopehospice.org or
call Hope at (239) 482-
4673 or (800) 835-1673.

dent and chief executive officer

'Beauty' much better than review
Editor:
I am deeply disappointed about the recent
Highlands Little Theatre review of "Beauty and the
Beast" ... with no mention of talent in the show.
Our family saw a performance of the show and
we were in awe of every aspect of the production:
the acting, singing, dancing, sets, costumes all
under the superb direction of Kristin Taylor.
Having seen the Broadway production of this
masterpiece, we can assure you that HLT's version
is every bit the equal! It is one of the longest run-
ning shows on Broadway having opened April
1994. Every member of the cast was outstanding,
with special mention of female lead, Laura Wade,
whose winning combination of acting, singing, and
beauty was spectacular.
Laura studied voice with private instruction in
high school and continued through college. She has
a bachelor's in Theatre from University of
Louisiana where she studied acting and production.
(She is almost equally as talented in directing and
other aspects of a production as she is performing.)
The past few summers Laura assisted her sister
Lindsay Lynch with the Governor's Summer
Program, a three- to four-week theatre experience
for middle and high school students. This past year
Laura was the instructor when the students present-
ed "Into the Woods, Jr."
The outstanding portrayal of the Beast by talent-
ed Larry McCandless was at once intense, convinc-
ing, frightening at times, but always revealing the
agonizing soul beneath the makeup. I could go on
and on to talk about Chris Hayes, Ken Hall, and
Jonathan Lambright, Adam Meredith, Patty Young,
Art Harriman ... who were superb in their roles.
And let's not forget the rest of the support cast and
stage crew.
If you have not seen this brilliant show, make all
haste to HLT to enjoy what surely is a landmark
theatrical event. The show is such a success that
HLT has added a Saturday matinee on Nov 22.

Prayer that Obama surrounds
himself with good people
Editor:
The headline read, "Obama Makes History," and
the article stated, "Obama became the first black
president on Tuesday." I thought this was not about
race! What is so historical about an American
becoming president of the USA? Would the article
had read, "White McCain became President?"
What is historical about Barack Hussein Obama
being president-elect is the following: promised to


The Highlands County commissioners voted recent-
ly to proceed with a public hearing on raising the
low income senior homeowners homestead


exemption another $10,000
But with the decrease in tax collec-
tions already, wouldn't it be fiscally
responsible to wait just a bit more before
making another tax cut?
Now, don't get us wrong. The News-
Sun is all about cutting the cost of living
in most circumstances, and we recognize
that seniors are sometimes the hardest
hit, especially those on fixed incomes.
We are also aware that the board seems
undecided on this issue.
Two commissioners Guy Maxcy and
Don Bates have stated publicly that
they favor the exemption.
Two are against it.
Barbara Stewart said she does not sup-
port tax breaks for any one group, while
newly elected Jeff Carlson said publicly
that he has serious reservations about
supporting tax breaks that don't go to all


to $15,000.
taxpayers.
Commissioner Edward Stokes could
be the decision maker if this comes to a
vote.
Putting the issue of targeting a specif-
ic group with a tax break aside, does it
make financial sense to cut tax revenue
right now?
Like lots of Floridians, the state is dis-
covering that it won't bring in any extra
money this year to help with rising costs.
State economists estimate that Florida
will collect $1 billion less in taxes this
year than expected and that the state will
have about the same amount of money
next year.
The bleak fiscal outlook, which helped
the county to write the 2008-09 budget,
cited familiar culprits.
Construction is slow and housing


prices are dropping, prompting less con-
sumer spending and thus less sales tax
collections.
Also dropping are taxes on invest-
ments, property transactions and corpo-
rate income.
Since tax revenues are down, the coun-
ty and city municipalities all have stated
that they are "cutting to the bone" so to
speak in order to preserve jobs using hir-
ing freezes, not replacing folks who have
retired or left, and other means to stay
the financial drain.
Losing government-based jobs right
now means even less money back into
circulation within the county since the
county is one of the largest employers.
In light of this information, does it
make sense to cut taxes?
Nope.
At least not right now.
It's hard, we know, but we would sug-
gest that everyone in Highlands County
pull together and hang tough, especially
when considering a tax break.

Appropriation of tax
dollars is destructive
Editor:
The first thing I would like to say is, how simple
and efficient the process was during my visit to the
Government Center on Thursday preceding the
election. Courteous workers and easy to understand
explanations as for directions. The whole process
took me 12 minutes.
The next thing would be how disappointed I am
at the appropriation of tax dollars to financial insti-
tutions without a preliminary set of guidelines as
for mandatory distribution to citizens and not to be
used for corporate CEO bonuses and sub-business
distribution.
This is just as destructive to the nation as a ter-
rorist attack. The criminal elite in Washington knew
the people were getting fed up and that accounta-
bility was looming, so they rushed a big pay off for
their own lack of accountability for the security of
our economy and every day hard working Joe, yes
you and me, the ones who don't want the people to
be dependent upon government to give sustenance

I urge you to read the book "America in
Prophecy," which will open your sight into what
the Bible backs up! There are a few more years of
current conflicts and insurgency, which will require
a great deal of our armed services in other coun-
tries. So, the new approach is to start a new form of
Homeland Security under the name of Civil
Security Service. This will be a nationwide armed


force similar to the National Guard and are going
to be trained citizens assigned to the public inter-
ests, that will assist our law enforcement that can't
apprehend and prosecute due to the corrupt elite
that are really in control of our streets. There is no
such thing as a pro-active approach to these
regimes as this is: systematically present within
society and is what hurting and not helping our
future generation.
This is something officers struggle with daily
within their duties and themselves and it hurts them
to know that they cannot fully perform due dili-
gence for the safety of the public, when it is our
own government that allowed all the illegal entries.
... So, it is going to take another new approach to
get our nation back to what the founders intended.
So, the next time you see a law enforcement offi-
cer, show a little respect to them and give a thank
you for all that they have done, may struggle with
and the fact that they are people too and put their
lives on the line every working day and also have
families to raise. If you are one that is able to con-
tribute to society and you choose not to and you're
without limitation, get up and find a job. Stop
being part of the problem and be a light for the
realization of the American Dream that our future
generation is counting on and has been prophesied
because when the light goes out, the alternative of
martial law will be something that is in conflict
with liberty and freedom.

Mishap in parking lot
handled very well
Editor:
Recently I fell, tripping over a speed bump in
front of Publix at Southgate Shopping Center. No
bones were broken, a miracle in itself, but I was
badly bruised and shaken.
Two women appeared out of nowhere! One on
each side of me. They picked me up, guided me out
of the street and into Publix and waited while a
chair was provided and Publix took over my care.
The manager called for ice water, an ice bag for
my face and first aid for my bleeding arm. I was
cared for with a minimum of fuss. Eventually, two
of the store's personnel were allowed to see me
home, one driving me in my car and the other fol-
lowing to take my driver back to Publix.
I just want to offer my heartfelt thanks to all w1ho
were so kind to me. They could not have been
kinder and I thank God for each one of them.

Trooper collides with Hardee County

School bus; 1 child slightly hurt


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
WAUCHULA A Monday
afternoon accident between a
state trooper and school bus
caused more damage to the
two vehicles than the 10 chil-
dren inside.
The children ranged in age
from 8 to 13 years old, with
an I -year-old Wauchula boy


the only student sustaining an
injury.
The injury was minor and
did not require medical atten-
tion, a Florida Highway
Patrol report stated.
The bus was headed south-
bound on S.R. 35 in the left
turn lane when it pulled in
front of a marked FHP patrol
car, the report stated,

"It's not that we are not going to finish the
parkway, (but) it might take a little bit longer
because we need to let the revenue pick up,"
Gavarrete said. "On the other hand, we need to
free up in-house labor and equipment ... do
maintenance instead of construction projects
with the Parkway."
He said at the previous rate the project,
started the summer of 2007, could have been
completed in-house by 2009.
"But it's not good for the maintenance of
(county roads,)" he said. "People used to ask
me in 2007 and I would tell them it was at
least a three-year project.".

the accident.

For the second year in
a row, members of Sun
'N Lake Elementary
School's student council
conducted a bottle and
bib drive, this year
adding blankets, for
Healthy Families of
Highlands. The student
representatives organ-
ized and publicized the
drive and then collected
the donations. It took
five adults to carry the
bags filled with supplies
to their cars. Filling the
bags from left to right
are Guillermina
Guerrero, the family
assessment worker at
Healthy Families,
Missie Caracut, Xashary
Sabater, Katlyn Painter
and Scheele Grimes.
Deborah Hadley, the
director of Healthy
Families, is smiling in
the back.


t slows to crawl

way from the Parkway to County Road 17A
(Memorial Drive) near College Drive in Avon
Park was scheduled to start in the 2010-11 fis-
cal year. Construction on that phase was esti-
.mated to take two years.
"It's a lot different when we talked about
this in June," Stewart said. "A lot has hap-
pened. We only have so much money and we
need to know if we do this project how long
are we really going to have to wait to do
another."
An upcoming workshop will address this
and other budget issues, one Stewart said she
looks forward to.
Newly elected Commissioner Jeff Carlson
has his eyes on finishing the Parkway.
"I think we need to put it back on the table
to be done and not put it aside for new proj-
ects," he said. "It's'been on the table, for 30
years and we'have been setting money aside
for all these years. I think to pull it off the
table now is a bad decision."


Continued from page 1A
drunk in every way but
blood alcohol level.
He was able to rationalize
every decision, and lived in
a self-centered universe of
easy rationalizations.
It wasn't until he began
the process of his formal
education studying theol-
ogy, the teaching of religion
.and addiction therapies -
and he met counselors who
challenged and mentored
him that he was finally able
to first change his way of
thinking, and then his
behavior.
It was a bitter struggle,
the battle to regain his life.
He had to watch another
man raise his children, go
homeless for months, and
nurse hangovers for years
before the desire to change
grew strong enough to move
him to action.
In an odd way then, he
gave himself up once again,
and it took over a year.
But this time, instead of
yielding to the tractor beam
of self-destruction into a
downward spiral of self-hate
and explosive anger, he let
go in order to float on his
faith in God.
That lifts him above the
turmoil, allowing him to sur-
render so he can be at
one with the world and
available to others.
At the same time, Nelson
has the wisdom to under-
stand his addiction has not
gone away or been over-
come.
For whatever reasons -
science is still trying to fig-
ure it all out addicts are
addicts for their entire lives.
"Addiction defines me as
much as my Christianity
does," Nelson said, even
though he has been clean
and dry for decades. "I final-
ly got my life together and in
balance.
"But if I take a drink, or
respond to someone in
anger, I'm dead in the water.
"I have chosen a holiness
lifestyle, instead. I am
absolutely dedicated to


doing the next right thing."
Nelson had become a pas-
tor, and was serving with the
staff of the Union
Congregational Church in
Avon Park when his career
shifted from the pastoral to
counseling.
JASA had already been
established by Mel Williams
in the Polk County jail sys-
tem, and Williams wanted to
expand it into Highlands
County.
The timing couldn't have

'Addiction
defines me as
much as my
Christianity
does. Finally
got my life
together and in
balance. I have
chosen a
holiness lifestyle
instead. I am
absolutely
dedicated to
doing the next

right thing.'

CHARLIE NELSON

been better.
First, Nelson wanted to
study for a doctorate degree
in substance abuse counsel-
ing and JASA provided an
excellent research project as
well as an ideal opportunity.
Second, Sheriff Susan
Benton wanted to bring the
JASA program into the
county jail and was a force-
ful advocate.
Between the .three of
them, an initial JASA pro-
gram began in December
2006 after Nelson studied
with Williams up in Polk
County for nine months.
The key to success,
Nelson said, is to bring
abourinner change. That can
only happen when the per-
son with addictions wants to


change.
But desire, while essen-
tial, is not the only ingredi-
ent needed. In fact, desire
alone is often not enough.
Nelson uses a baseball
metaphor he calls the three
bases leading to a home run.
Once an inmate understands,
and can act on the three
bases, a home run (success)
is possible.
First base means the body
must be nurtured is it
rested, is it nutritionally bal-
anced, has it been exercised?
Second base means the
criminal (addictive) thinking
must be straightened the
world does not break down
into simply us and them; me
and everyone else, for exam-
ple. Inmates have to under-
stand everyone has a place
in the world, including
themselves, and that effort is
necessary for a healthy life.
Third base involves the
emotions. To be successful,
an individual has to under-
stand how they typically
react to disappointment or
restrictions. By knowing the
difference between what
,they feel, and what is real,
people can make rational
decisions, instead of impul-
sive ones.
By keeping in touch with
reality individuals have the
focus to stay on target and
keep doing the next right
thing.
"It's not just finding a
new lifestyle," Nelson said.
"It's about saving your life."
And it's working. Nelson
said studies show 70 percent
of the men and women who
have chosen to enter the vol-
untary JASA program have
stayed clean and out of jail
for 18 months the meas-
urement used to determine
success.
Ultimately, Nelson said,
"These guys have to do the
hard work of recovery them-
selves. I am so proud of
them, and it's so good to
see."
He smiles, "I have a-pas- .:-
sion about this, money pales
in comparison."


Arctic chill should be short


Continued from page 1A
Service, trapped air between
the layers insulates the body.
Layers should be removed as
appropriate to avoid sweating
and subsequent chill.
Wear a hat (or hood)
because half a body's heat can
be lost through the head.
The mouth should be cov-
ered to protect the lungs from
the extreme cold.
The weather .service Web
site says the air temperature
has to be below, freezing in
order for frostbite to develop
on exposed skin.
Wind chill can bring the


temperature to below freezing
for humans and animals, so it
is a good idea to.provide shel-
ter for any outdoor pets.
The term wind chill refers
to how cold people and ani-
mals feel outside.
According to the weather
service, wind chill is based on
the rate of heat loss from
exposed skin caused by wind
and cold.
"As wind increases, it draws
heat from the body, driving
down skin temperature and
eventually the internal body
temperature.
STherefore, the wind makes
it feel much colder."

Heartland Workforce was
part of the reorganization of

Those centers could not

who needed services could

of Bill Jarrett, told the history
of Ford Motor Company with
the Avon Park Noon Rotary
Club recently.


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Brian Jarrett presented an
informative and entertaining program to the

Jacobson to speak at November Audubon meeting


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
guest speaker for the Tuesday
Audubon meeting will be
Dianne D. Jacobson,
Highlands County's horticul-
ture extension agent.
Jacobson's topic will be
"Sustainable Development"
and how to achieve human
and ecosystem longevity for
today and future generations.
Sustainability, according to
Wikipedia, is the capacity to
maintain a certain process or
state indefinitely. If applied to
the human community, it has
been expressed as meeting
present needs without com-
promising the ability of future
generations to meet their


needs.
Sustainability, a controver-
sial and complex term, has
been applied in many differ-
ent ways and levels of biolog-
ical organizations ( e.g.-wet-
lands, piairies, and forests),
human organization (e.g.
ecovillages, eco-municipali-
ties, sustainable cities) and
human activities and disci-
plines (e.g. sustainable agri-
culture, and sustainable archi-
tecture).
Jacobson, a native of
Ithaca, N.Y., graduated from
Cornell University in 1991,
College of Agriculture and
Life Sciences, earning a bach-
elor's degree in floriculture
and ornamental horticulture.


After graduation Jacobson
moved to Orlando where she
has gained more than 15 years
experience with the Green
Industry.
Jacobson co-workers and
associates know her as "Dee-
Dee." She works with the
Highlands County Master
Gardeners and homeowners
developing new program-
ming, newsletters and consul-
tations.
Audubon meets the fourth
Tuesday of each month at the
Masonic Lodge on the corner
of Park and Main in Lake
Placid.
The public is invited to
attend at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday
for dinner followed by a brief

Lunch Club learns


importance of


positive thinking


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Jeanny
Campbell, Life Success
consultant, gave the Lunch
Club Wednesday ladies net-
working club a motivation
boost with her presentation,
"You are Living the Life of
your Dreams!"
Campbell reminded the
club the importance of
training the mind and the
value of using positive
thinking and senses like
intuition to propel ourselves
toward what we want in
life. Campbell said, "I'm
passionate about this topic
of teaching people how they
have infinite potential and
how it all begins with their
thoughts. You know, we've
been taught 'be positive'
and 'have a great attitude' -
but it's a lot more than that,
and how does one do that
when 'reality' hits?"
This club meets the sec-
ond Wednesday of month
for lunch at the Sebring
Elks Lodge and is designed
with business and non-prof-


it showcases, door prizes,
motivational speakers,
courage awards, cash
awards and more. The
club's membership is busi-
ness women, students,
retirees, hobbyists, entre-
preneurs, and more. The
goal is to meet and support
each other in endeavors,
make friendships and grow
lasting relationships.
During the year the club
will also focus on issues
such as women's health and
wellbeing, but also seek and
encourage new ideas and
ways to network and help
each other in the business
community.
For more information
about Lunch Club
Wednesday call Diana
Albritton, founder, at 381-

scheduled for Dec. 10 at the

FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS


Sebring
Recreation Club
By Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING -Nov. 6, 90
people competed in the shuf-
fleboard tournament at
Sebring. Don Rood, who was
Carl's partner Oct. 13 in Avon
Park, presented Carl Wile a hat
for his becoming a pro shuf-
fler. Clarence Wright and part-
ner Harold Cunningham,
Charles Frey were the pro win-
ners from Sebring. In the
Amateur division, Carl Wile
and partner won first place.
Carl starts as a pro next
October. Sebring amateurs in
the winner's circle find Don
Rohman, Bill Hann and Anna
Eldredge.
The meal offered again was
outstanding with Joyce and
Bill Kaleita doing the cooking.
This was their first time under
fire at the club and it was a
success for them. Those that
served: Ann Kisel, Marilyn
Wile, Patty Boswell, Ada
Williams, Janice Patterson,
Mary Hardy, with Ed O'Blenis
handling the money.
Ping-pong is now in full
swing with more room for
more players. The ladies num-
ber of players is also picking
up. We are on the look out for
another good table if. you
know of one, let the players
know about it. Beverly Ramos
may get more bridge players to
join her in table tennis.
Judy Holloway led the ama-
teurs in the Highlands County
tournament Nov. 11 at
Sebring. Sony Patterson, Bill
Tedford, Marion Reynen and
Joan Mondry were the other
winners from Sebring.
Floyann Frey, John Bushee
and Lowell Jones were the pro
winners from Sebring. These
tournaments are open to all
people that reside in Highlands
County. The next county tour-
nament will be Dec. 2 at Avon
Park.
Clearing the board, block-
ing, hiding and kitchen play
when necessary. Do.not take
-7 liinces; discipline yourself to
make only high percentage
shots. Do not leave a hide on
the board for your opponent. If
you stick and your opponent
hides a block, clear the lead
block off with your next shot;
do not leave the head block on
the board. Stay cool and don't
be nervous. Be a good partner
whatever the case. Remember
the court drift with every shot
that you make.
Line dancing still has free
dancing lessons for beginners
from 5:15-6:15 p.m.
Wednesday.
You can do other things in

Town and Country
Mobile Home Park
By Janet Day

SEBRING Several folks
have returned to Town and
Country the past couple weeks
as evidenced by a full club-
house for our Nov. 3 Home
Owners Association meeting.
Welcome back to all including
the Lichtles, Lucas,'
Glassbrooks, Robinsons,
Mullens and Larry Garbert.
New residents Leona and Jerry
Niedzielski from the Buffalo,
N.Y. area were welcomed.
They reside on Town &
Country Boulevard and are
happy to be in Florida.
Bill Wyse encouraged sup-


port the Federation of
Manufactured Honieowners of
Florida Inc. by becoming
members. Contact any of the
board members for informa-
tion. FMO provides current


legislation affecting us as
manufactured homeowners;
aids with legal issues a park
may become involved with;
provides a lobbyist to promote
and protect our needs; plus we
receive an informative bi-
monthly magazine covering
various issues of interest to us.
Rich Ingler is president of the
local district of this important
organization.
We are striving for 100 per-
cent HOA membership within
Town and Country MHP and
were encouraged to become
active members. There are
advantages in that an active
member has a say in decisions
that might affect them. There
is strength in numbers and a
united front is vital in any con-
troversy arising in the park.
Please consider helping us
achieve this goal; whether you
choose to attend meetings or
not, it is important to become a
member.
Nominating Committee
Chairman Hal Johnson pre-
sented names of individuals
willing to serve as officers for
2009. Voting will be held at
the Dec. 1 HOA meeting; if
you are unable to attend,
please contact Toby Chapel,
president, and he will assist
you with an early ballot.
Please exercise your privilege
of voting on that date.
I will take this opportunity
to commend our current board
members for giving of them-
selves first of all; secondly, for
their contribution of time
above and beyond what would
normally be expected of a
board. They strive to assist
park homeowners with prob-
lems as they arise and do
remarkable research to support
their efforts. I feel we, as
homeowners, are very fortu-
nate to have this Board work-
ing on our behalf. Toby
Chapel, president; Mary Beth
Carby, secretary; Bette
Chapel, treasurer; and Trustees
Bill Wyse, Wende Caruso-
Johnson and Don Blonde.
Thanks and kudos for your
service!
Social functions are going
well. A good sized group
attended our first pot luck sup-


per on Oct. 30. Pocket Canasta
players are enjoying Monday
evenings. Several attended
Game Night on Tuesday.
Everyone was happy to get
back into Bingo on Thursday
evening. The Men's Group
continue their Friday evening
poker time. The first weekly
coffee hour started with 16
attending to include a repre-
sentative from Arbor
Reception and Banquet Hall in
Arcadia who explained their
upcoming shows and pro-
grams. Shuffleboard players
are getting re-acclimated to
Tuesday/Friday schedule.
Water aerobics continue on
Tuesday/Thursday morning.
Nov. 8 everyone enjoyed a
great breakfast. The cooks
were flipping pancakes,
sausage and preparing bis-
cuits; a bonus was Hal
Johnson's sausage gravy for
our biscuits. Veterans were
honored on the occasion with a
free breakfast. Thanks to
Wende and crew. It was great
seeing Don and Loretta
Schnoor out. Loretta's illness
limits her socializing much so
we were really pleased to
enjoy the time with them.
Folks say they miss seeing
Eunice Hazelton and Lucky
out for their daily walks. Sorry
to report Eunice is having
some back/hip problems that
are restricting her for a time.
With some home physical
therapy, we hope she'll be out
and about soon. Thanks to all
the kind neighbors who have
been assisting Eunice.
Ruth Lee has responded
well to her last elbow surgery
and is now working at physical
therapy also. Hope you
progress well, Ruth. Gisela
Bukantis is also having PT
treatments. Others in the park
are experiencing various ail-
ments which they suspect may
require surgery. These old
bodies just don't hold up well
anymore it seems.
Everyone is enjoying the
great water temperatures for
water aerobics or just relaxing
with a swim. Ted has been
busy redoing the shuffleboard
area tables and benches. We
appreciate the efforts and

standing, so you can converse more confidently and more
comfortably with others.

thank you to management for
the pool amenities and the
other improvements.
We were alerted of reports
of thefts in the area. We were
advised to be observant; lock
vehicles and homes and keep a
vigil in the neighborhood.
Report any irregularities to
management and the sheriff
department. Remember, a
good way to disrupt a burglar
is to place vehicle keys in
proximity to your bed; if you
hear an unusual noise, press
the button for your vehicle.
The alarm will be set off and
the beeping horn will send the
culprit running and alert
neighbors of a problem. A
good tip when walking in a
parking lot to your vehicle
also.
Upcoming events include a
pot luck dinner on Wednesday,
Nov. 19; Thanksgiving dinner
on Nov. 27; Friday, Dec. 5 is
the great Christmas parade'
downtown; Saturday, Dec. 6,
some of our residents take part
in the Living Christmas Tree
concert at the downtown
Baptist church; Sunday, Dec. 7
several will be attending the
Warner Southern College
Christmas concert near Lake
Wales. Wonderful opportuni-
ties to start enjoying the
Christmas season. Many in the
park have started decorating so
we look forward to the beauty
of the season. Several in the
park are involved in the
Highlands Little Theater pro-
duction, "Beauty and the
Beast." You still have time to
take advantage of local talent
and attend through Nov. 23.
Have heard the show is excel-
lent. Chuck and I are looking
forward to attend on Nov. 19.

Treatment available for age-


related macular degeneration


Age-related macular
degeneration (ARMD) ranks
second behind diabetic
retinopathy as the leading
cause of blindness in
patients ages 45-64 years
old. Almost 30 percent of
those older than 75 years
have some type of ARMD. It
is the leading cause of blind-
ness in patients older than
65 in the United States,
Canada, England, Australia,
and Scotland.
Several risk factors have
been presented for ARMD,.
including cardiovascular dis-
ease, cigarette smoking,
heredity, hypertension, light-
colored eyes, sun exposure,
and gender (females seem to
be more affected than
males). Regardless, aging is
the dominant variable linked
to the development of
ARMD.
There are two types of
ARMD: the dry form and
the wet form. Both seem to
always occur in patients
older than 50.
The dry form of ARMD is
characterized by distorted
vision and gradual loss of
central vision; however, it
may show no symptoms at
all initially. Upon physical
exam, the eye doctor may
note degenerative changes in
the macular tissue such as
hyaline deposits in the retina
(macular drusen), clumps of
pigment, and atrophy of reti-
nal tissue. The doctor will
check your central vision
and will also examine the
back of the eye using vari-
ous lenses to check for any
evidence of blood or leak-
age.
No proven treatment is
available at this time; how-
ever, the use of oral nutri-
tional supplements including
antioxidants (vitamins A, C,
and E) is proving to be ber--l

If you are one of the nearly 6
million men with erectile dys-
function for whom pills don't
work, learn how the Internal
Penile Pump restores normal sexual
function.
Oral medications such as Viagra,
Levitra, and Cialis are successful in
restoring erections for 65% of the 20
million American men who are affected
by erectile dysfunction (ED). However, a
third of all those suffering from ED
require a more advanced treatment
option: fewer than 50% of men with dia-
betes and fewer than 40% of men after
prostate cancer treatment respond to
oral ED medication.
The Internal Penile Pump is currently
the best option for men who do not
respond to medication, says Dr. Kevin
Lee, Sebnng, Florida. one of the top
rated physicians in the state of Florida
who is recognized as a center of excel-
lence for this procedure in the United
States, performing hundreds of Penile
Pump insertions.


A simple procedure to get back a lifetime of pleasure.
The Internal Penile Pump is an inflatable, water-filled device. During the course of a
45 minute outpatient procedure, the pump is inserted through a one-inch opening in
the scrotal sac. By squeezing the pump which is contained completely w-ithin the
scrotum I, for approximately a minute, fluid is pumped into the penis, resulting in a
long lasting erection. To return the penis to its flaccid state, simply press and hold
down the pump. Once inserted, there is no maintenance required for the pump which
can remain in place for a lifetime.
The control and quality you want: the pleasure your partner will appreciate.
The highlight of this treatment is that it restores the patient's control over his body.
so that he is able to obtain and maintain an erection at will Couples are once again
able to have spontaneous sex. Normal sensations, including orgasm and ejaculation,
is not affected. The procedure is covered by most insurance policies, including
Medicare.

Defensive battle goes to Streaks


News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE
A hair-raising, high-flying collision was seen on this attempt
to control the ball by Sebring's Troy Talbert and Lake
Placid's Santiago Herrera in the Blue Streaks 2-1 win
Monday night.


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
News-Sun sportswriter
LAKE PLACID If you
are a sports fan, you have to
love rivalries.
Monday night Lake Placid
and Sebring tussled
beneath the lights at
Roger Scarborough
Field for a soccer match
to be remembered.
Rivalries as intense
as this one are bound to
be full of physical play
and this was no excep-
tion as both teams combined
for five yellow card viola-
tions.
Both squads had excellent
defensive efforts, limiting
shots on goal and easy pass-
es in the box, but it was the
Blue Steaks that broke
through with a 2-1 win.
The defensive effort for
both teams was so good that
it took more than 57 minutes


Sel



ke


before the first ball sailed
into the net.
"I thought our defense
played very well. They have
been shutting everyone
down so far this year,"
Sebring head coach
bring Tim Boulay said.
"We have some
things that we need
Placid to tighten up and
our guys need to
start talking more."
Both squads had
a handful of shots
on goal in the first forty min-
utes of competition but both
goalies came up big to keep
things scoreless at the half.
The second half started
much like the first, with both
teams playing solid defense
and giving few opportunities
to get the offense involved.
Lake Placid had one of
their biggest chances to
score in the 65th minute as


Antonio Torres booted the
ball on a corner kick that
was headed by Ricardo
Jaramillo but missed the
goal by inches.
A couple minutes later, the
Blue Streaks got on the
scoreboard as Jazan Jimenez
laid a nice pass in front of
Washley Jean who blasted
the ball past the outstretched
arms of the diving goalkeep-
er.
With less than five min-
utes left in the game Lake
Placid had a couple chances
to tie the game up but Torres
kicked the ball over the goal
keeping the Sebring lead at
1-0.
As the game reached the
final minutes, Derek
Drummond got open from 40
yards out and blasted a laser
shot into the right side of the
net to push the score to 2-0.

Devil defense steals


away win at Sebring


By ED BALDRIDGE

SEBRING "It's about
time."
That was the statement
Avon Park girls basketball
head coach Paulette Daley
made after the Lady Red
Devils trounced the host
Sebring Blue Streaks 52-22 in
the first season match-
up of the county rivals. Avon
"I think it was 2001
last time we beat
Sebring, and it's about
time. It felt really Sebr
good. We have the 2:
team, and our girls are
prepared this year,"
said an excited Daley. "We
have some great leadership
out of our seniors. Beonca
(Godfrey) did an outstanding
job for us today."
Godfrey would lead the
team in field goals, netting 16
points for the game, but her
aggressive defensive play was
what really stood out and set
the tone of the game.
"We pressed them hard,"
said Daley. "The turnovers
really made the difference, we
were focused on getting steals.
With this team, we cannot just
sit in a 2-3 zone defense,
we've got to apply pressure."
"This win means a lot," said
Godfrey. "We have come back

with confidence, and we have
focused on getting the plays
down. 1 had to settle down and

The Lady Devils'

out in front 35-8 after
Ing 16 minutes of aggres-
sive play which forced
12 turnovers.
Taking advantage of
a young, inexperienced
backcourt, Avon Park's quick
guards amped up the pressure,
stepped into the passing lanes
and generally wreaked havoc
for turnovers and easy scores.
After the half the excite-
ment in the Sebring gym
climbed, as the Lady Streak
defense gelled and began
double-teaming Godfrey
inside, forcing Avon Park to
go to the outside.
Meanwhile, the Sebring
offense was finally able to get
it inside more to take advan-
tage of their size. advantage.

Highlands County records.

It seemed a clash of the titans as Olivia Bullock, #30, and Brearnna Tate battle for a
rebound Tuesday afternoon. But the Lady Red Devils' smothering defense and first-half
dominance made this more lopsided than anticipated in Avon Park's 52-22 win over
Sebring.

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

Baseball

greed and

perhaps a

conspiracy?

The Major League
Baseball Players Union is at
it again, pushing for nothing
more than more and more
money.
It was recently reported
that the union is giving free
agent pitcher C.C. Sabathia a
bit of extra 'encouragement'
to accept the New York
Yankees massive offer of
about $140 million over six
years.
The team he finished up
last season with, the
Milwaukee Brewers, have
reportedly offered $100 mil-
lion over five years.
Not to say that Sabathia
isn't a fierce competitor, but
maybe the big stage of New
York isn't something he'd
relish.
Many players have taken
the Yankees up on huge
offers, cashing in when they
can, only to find that the
bright lights of Bioadway are
a bit too much for them to
handle.
Of course the union wants
him to take the highest bid
out there, because that then
sets the market for the rest of
the players higher.
But just because it's the
most money, does that mean
it is a good fit for the player?
Sabathia is also a
California native who, per-
haps, might want to continue
his career closer to home.
If the Angels or Dodgers
made an offer of $110 mil-
lion over 5 years, with an
option for sixth, and he was
leaning toward taking it,
wouldn't that seem like a
good move for him?
I understand the business
rationale, and I'm all for
players making what they
can but when you're talk-
ing about contracts in the
hundreds of millions of dol-
lars, I don't think the end-all,
be-all should be just about
getting the absolute most.
Especially when you con-
sider that greatest of motto's
when it comes to making a
move location, location,
location.
Some players are cut out
to shine in the Big Apple, for
others the pressure of the
spotlight of Gotham is just
too much.
And no amount of money
is going to change that.
Speaking of millions -
well, we'll have to up that a
bit by replacing the 'm' with
a 'b' we have the curious
situation with .com billion-
aire Mark Cuban.
The SEC (no. not the
South Eastern Conference,
it's the Stock and Exchange
Commission) has filed a civil
suit accusing him of inside
trading.
Apparently, a few years
ago, an Internet company in
Canada, that Cuban owned
600,000 shares of, was going
to offer up more stock for
sale to raise some more
money.
Now I'm no Wall Street
expert, but from what I gath-
er is that when a company
does this, current sharehold-
ers are often not too happy
because it then devalues their
own stock.
Allegedly, Cuban caught

Streaks make it three in

a row to start season


Continued from 1C
Lake Placid responded with
less than two minutes to go as
Torres put a corner kick into
play in front of the goalkeep-
er where it was knocked in on
a well-timed header by Jorge
Medina.
The score was too little too
late for the Dragons as the
game soon ended.
Both defenses managed the
game well, holding the
offenses near the middle of
the field most of the night.
Jesse Ouverson had a
strong night for the Blue
Streaks as he finished the
game with six saves while his
counterpart Ernesto Jimenez


of Lake Placid closed out the
contest with eight saves.
With the win the Blue
Streaks move to 3-0 on the
year while the Dragons are 0-
1.
"I thought our defense
played very well. We were
worried about our defense
coming into the game but
they stepped up," Lake Placid
head coach Joshua Virkler
said. "We had really good
play from Kyle Thompson
and Ernesto Jimenez. I can't
say how happy I am at the
play of Jesses Orozco who
stepped up against one of
their best players."

ambush nets win
Continued from 1C
picking up eight points to dig into the sizable lead, but
the Devils soon settled back down and went to work.
"We didn't come out strong to begin with during
the second half. They lost their heads a bit, and I had
to tell them to settle down. They listened, and it gave
us the time to pressure their guards," said Daley.
The Devils returned the favor and took over the
territory under the net, holding the usually double
digit insider Hannah Shoop to just eight points.
Shoop would pick-up 25 rebounds, mostly due to
the caroms coming off the outside shooting, but
even the effective Jerica Moore felt the pressure and
could only hit six points from outside the paint.
Avon Park pushed the pace up a notch during the
Y. fourth period, running out front the rest of the
I game until it's anti-climatic end.
The win has the Lady Devils on an early season
roll after having swept their two tournament games.
at the Lake Region Pre-Season Tip-Off over
Lakeland Christian and Hardee.
The Lady Devils hold court again on Thursday
at home when they face Palmetto at 6 p.m.
Sebring, meanwhile, came off a split in their
Tip-Off Tournament, falling to Okeechobee and
topping Bartow as they work toward getting a bet-
ter balance between their outside and inside game.
The Streaks also stay at home when the tip-off
against Booker Thursday night at 7:30 p.m.

Chilly night cools Lady Streaks


Continued from 1C
Samantha Ortiz for a 1-0
Sebring lead.
The lead held until the
45:05 mark when Hernandez
took advantage of a loose ball
in front of Sebring keeper,
Misha Hahn.
Courtney Moore assisted
Hernandez for the goal to
knot the game at 1-1.
Clewiston used a direct
kick to set up its second goal.
Moore scored off the kick
from Kristi McCarthy at
51:50 and the Lady Tigers
final score came from


Hernandez with an assist from
McCarthy at the 53:38 mark.
Ashley cited several keys
to more offense for the
Streaks.
"We need to be better on
our first touches," he said.
"We've got to make better
decisions. Sometimes we hold
the ball too long."
Ashley moved Amanda
Grimaldo to defense against
Clewiston.
"They feel more confident
with her back there," he said.
The Streaks record fell to
1-2 on the year and Clewiston


'We've got to
make better
decisions.
Sometimes we hold
the ball too long.'

year, meaning that $750,000
isn't all that much, in con-
text.
If you just follow the ultra-
scientific approach of putting
those numbers side by side
and taking away zero's,
you'd see that that is the
equivalent of someone hav-
ing $230,000 and losing $75.
Or someone having
$23,000 and losing $7.50.
Now, of course, people
that get that rich are the
types to have a keen eye
toward the bottom line and
have little patience for losses
of any kind.
So I wouldn't be that sur-
prised if it came out that
Cuban maybe caught wind of
the impending stock offering
and decided, "hey, I should
probably pull out of that."
But I also find it curious
that it's coming out now, as
the sale of the Cubs contin-
ues to progress, ever so slow-
ly.
The baseball owners, and
perhaps as high up as the


commissioner's office, have
shown no interest in having
Cuban join their ranks.
Until now, however,
they've never really had
much to say as far as con-
crete reasons why.
With his passion for sports,
the money he spends, his
marketing savvy he would
seem to bring a lot to the
table.
But his maverick image,
pardon the pun, and con-
frontational antics call him
a new-age George
Steinbrenner obviously rub
some people the wrong way.
But that would be some-
what lame reasoning for the
owners to vote down a sale
of the Cubs to him.
It just seems convenient


that now, through this, they
might find something with
which to back up their
denial.
These owners have been
found guilt of collusion
before, and I have to think
that some of them, some-
where, somehow, through
their vast earnings, have con-
nections that could dig up
dirt, find something shady to
bring up against Cuban.
So while CC Sabathia
looks for the right place, it
just might be that some own-
ers are digging around in low
places.
