Andrews arrested on



grand theft, fraud charges

Former Sebring chamber director released on $3,000 bond


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Dan Andrews, former
executive director of the Sebring
Chamber of Commerce and currently a
member of the Sebring City Council, was
arrested Monday on one count each of
grand theft, scheme to defraud and mak-
ing false entries on books of corporation.
These crimes are alleged to have taken
place while Andrews served as director of
the Sebring chamber, and involve funds


missing from chamber accounts. He is
said to have used those funds to enhance
his lifestyle, for example buying expen-
sive jewlery for his wife and golf clubs
for himself.
While a disturbing pattern of missing
funds, unexplained credit card charges
and incomplete paperwork revealed itself
over a period of three years, it took time
for the chamber's board to react.
Andrews was finally fired by the cham-
ber board in April for "gross negligence,"


and the matter was turned over to the
state's attorney for investigation.
The chamber's board of directors
released a statement Tuesday night that in
part read, "We are gratified to see that the
State Attorney's investigation has appar-
ently come to an end. The Chamber
Board of Directors does not have any
comments on the specifics of the investi-
gation or charges filed against Mr.

Two local college students
are spending their
Thanksgiving break adding
to Lake Placid's reputation
as the city of murals. John
Ritter (left), who attends
Florida State, and University
of Central Florida student
Wade Carter have been
working feverishly at Ida's
Airport and Boutique on
Main Street to complete
their mural of Jesus return-
ing to Earth. Ritter, whose
birthday was Tuesday, said
he and Carter will likely
spend around 20 total hours
working on the mural, which
they want to have complete
before Thanksgiving. The
pair also have a planned
project at Lake Placid
Elementary school for
Christmas break, where they
will paint the wall of the
cafeteria with story book
characters, making it appear
they are waiting in the lunch
line. The students are voting
on which characters they
want to see.

County takes

on clean-up

project for

Lake Clay
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun .com
SEBRING County commission-
ers took the first steps Tuesday to save
Lake Clay from becoming murky,
undesirable and unsafe.
A cooperative funding agreement
proposed at the board of county com-
missioners meeting requested $31,000
for phase one of the project, with
Southwest Florida Water Management
District covering the remaining 75 per-
cent.
"(Lake Clay) was identified by the
water management district by their
contractor when they did their study of
61 lakes," said Clell Ford, Lakes
Management specialist for Highlands
County. "(They) have a lot of data sur-
rounding what we are working
towards."
The proposal is to curtail the direct
flow of storm water that runs into the
southwest corner of the lake, fed by an
eight-acre basin that includes the
Tower Plaza, what Ford said was "a lot
of pavement for the size of the
drainage area."
In studies conducted over the past
10 years, runoff from a storm water
drain contained four times as much
nitrogen and 40 times as much phos-
phorus as the lake.
"Algae have to have those nutrients

ed.baldridge@newssun.comii
AVON PARK The Avon
Park Community Redevelop-
ment Agency approved two
airport resolutions in its meet-
ing on Monday night in coun-
cil chambers, moving the con-
troversial airport zoning issue
forward, but not without some
advice for caution from a local


attorney.
The council received and
rubber stamped its approval
for Resolution No. 08-09-,
drafted by the county, that out-
lines the creation of an Airport
Zoning Commission.
Included in the resolution
were provisions to replace the


original 1977 airport zoning
map that has now been lost
and the ability to recommend
boundaries for the hazard vari-
ous zones, their ability to
adopt regulations, and the abil-
ity to hold public meetings and
issue a final report for adop-
tion.


When the discussion turned
to Resolution No. 08-20,
which is an Avon Park city res-
olution, attorney Warwick
"Bud" Furr, approached the
board and asked if the resolu-
tion had even been reviewed
by City Attorney Gerald Buhr.
"I have awareness of the


past history of the Airport
CRA. I am trying to get it clear
what the procedures are. You
are going to bless the advisory
committee as the CRA"
"Yes," said Mayor Sharon
Schuler.
"Has there been any legal
input on this document?" Furr
asked.

Filip


concert


nearly


sold out

By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
christoplier.tuffley@newssun.conm
LAKE PLACID -
Gary Filip grew up on a
farm, moving as a young
man to the bright lights of
Chicago.
Growing up in a musi-
cal household his
father played the accor-
dion and made sure Filip
had a chance to follow his
own musical inclinations
he mastered several
instruments and became a
dedicated musician, right
down to the small tattoo
of musical notes he had
inked onto the web of his
thumb.
In Chicago, he devel-
oped a successful 30-year
career as a piano bar
entertainer, playing in
some of the most famous
venues of that city, like
the Pump Room and
Fairmont Hotel.
But Filip is as moved
by spiritual matters as
much as music. Deeply in
tune with the native
American respect for the
Earth and nature, he grad-
ually grew disenchanted
with neon lights and pave-
ment.
SWhen his parents
retired to Lake Placid, he
decided to
reinvent
his life,
mo ving
down here
five years
ago to be
Filip near them
and to
begin another career as a
builder of environmental-
ly friendly homes.
But of course, his love
and need for music never
left him.
That love and his new
invigorated life, including
meeting and marrying the
woman of his dreams, led
him to begin composing
again.
Working out of his
house, set in the midst of
Florida scrub with bird
calls, wind chimes and the
breeze providing inspira-
tion, he wrote a series of
songs celebrating life,
love and joy.
Those songs have been
recorded onto a CD titled
"Inspired," which he
made with some of his
Chicago musician friends
providing back-up.
On Friday those musi-
cians, along with new
musician friends from
local groups will join him
at the Highlands Little
Theatre for a concert.
Filip says he thinks the
evening will be a special
one. Not only will he per-
form his entire CD, but
after a break, he and the
other musicians will hold
an old-fashioned jam ses-
sion.
Horn players from Bill
Varner's Skylarks will be
joining the group for the
jam, and Filip will play an
accordion duet with his
dad. A children's choir
made up of students from
the Lake Placid
Montessori Children's
Academy and American
Heritage Private School
will take part in one .num-
ber.


Filip's music bears the
echoes of musicians he
admires artists like Dan
Fogelberg, Joni Mitchell,
and especially Kenny
Loggins and Jim Messina.
As of Tuesday after-
noon there were only 30
tickets left for the concert.
Tickets cost $35 a piece
and include a pre-concert
reception catered by
Charlie's Seafood &
Steak. The reception
begins at 7:30 p.m., the
concert at 8:30 p.m.
Contact HLT for tickets

The Diamond Steppers practice one of their routines earlier this year.


Diamond Steppers continue


to step without fee, for now


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK In a hesi-
tant 3-2 vote, the Avon Park
City Council allowed the
Diamond Steppers to contin-
ue to practice in the recre-
ation center, but left the
future uncertain.
As part of a youth outreach
program of a local chapter of
The Family Christian
Association of America, Inc.,
the Diamond Steppers is a
local percussive dance team
that draws elements from
African and Caribbean dance.
The age groups range from
elementary school students,
called "Baby Diamonds," to
high school seniors.


'We need to turn
loose of the dollar
here. We are
talking about our
children here.'

ARNOLD DAVIS
FCAA board member
The organization has used
the recreation center for over
three years now for their
weekly practice, but were told
sometime in October that they
would have to pay $15 per
hour to use the city facility.
Arnold Davis, board mem-
ber for FCAA, asked the
council why the sudden rent.


AP CRA approves


$30k in free grants


Questions arise

about how

money is spent
By ED BALDRIDGE,.
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK The Avon
Park Community
Redevelopment Agency
approved more than $30,300
in grants recommend by the
Southside Advisory Board at
its meeting Monday night in
council chambers, but ques-


tioned how the
money was being
spent.
"They have been
doing a lot for less
recently with these
grants," said Mayor
Sharon Schuler in
response to
Councilman Joe
Wright's question
about the CRA budg-


'7

with
gra


SHJ


"With the times SCH
the way they are, a AP I
lot of the contractors
out there are hungry right
now, and they (CRA) have
this in their budget," said
Schuler.
Councilman Al Joe Hinson
raised the question about
using Avon Park contractors
to do the work, stating that
contractors he asked do not
use this system because of
slow pay.
"Are these contractors from
Avon Park?" asked Hinson.
"A majority of these con-
tractors are from Lake
Placid," replied
Councilwoman Brenda Gray.
"I feel that if we are paying
for this with taxpayer money
from Avon Park, we should


have a list of contractors from
Avon Park," stated Hinson.
According to Gray, a
majority of the grants were
applied for through a county
process for low-income assis-
tance, many of the contractors
6n the bid list must meet
county criteria for insurance
and licenses.
A lot of the contractors are
chosen from a pool that
includes all of Highlands
County, not just Avon Park.
"I am sure that anyone who
wants to do the work can put
their name on the
rhey list," said Wright.
e been "Right now, the
people who are get-
g a lot ting the free facade
less grants are not spend-
ing any county
ently money. These folks
these are using Avon Park
money. All. this
,nts.' money is coming
from our CRA," said
ARON Gray.
IULER Additionally,
mayor according to Gray;
people who pursue
the grants through the county
process do not have to come
up with matching funds.
"I just want to make sure
that everyone is clear on that.
The county is administering
this, but are not handing out
any money."
"The CRA advisory com-
mittee needs to take the initia-
tive to solicit contractors and
sub-contractors to get on the
list to do this work," com-
mented Wright.
"I can bring that up at the
CRA meeting," said Schuler.
"They can start compiling a
list to make sure that Avon
Park contractors get a shot at
these."

Man jailed for


stealing Christmas


tree, flashing gun


AVON PARK A
Sebring man walked out of
Big Lots in Avon Park with
a Christmas tree in a box
Sunday night, then pulled a
gun on an employee who
followed him outside asking
to see a receipt, an Avon
Park Police Department
report said.
According to police, the
man, later identified as 33-
year-old Eric Allan
Tumility, carried the six-
and-a-half-foot stolen tree,
valued at $85, out to his car
while the employee fol-
lowed, asking for proof of
purchase. After putting the
tree in the back of his car,
Tumility allegedly reached
under the seat and pulled a
gun from inside a black hol-
ster, causing the employee
to retreat into the store, but
not before getting the car's
license plate number.
Police ran the plates and
soon ran down Tumility at
his Sun 'N Lake home,
where he reportedly volun-
tarily turned over a BB gun
that resembled a semi-auto-
matic handgun and admitted
to stealing the tree, telling
investigators he was having
financial difficulty and "was
not going to be able to pro-
vide a Christmas tree for his
children."
He said he threw the tree
into the woods on the way
home, and reportedly led
investigators to the spot,
where the tree was recov-
ered, still inside its box.
Tumility was charged
with robbery with a firearm,
a first-degree felony.

North.
According to arrest
reports, Jackson and an
unidentified person went to
the store shortly after 9 p.m.
on April 10. While the other
person went into the store
and distracted the clerks,
Jackson allegedly used a
key to open the access panel
of the fuel pump and dam-
aged a metering valve
inside, allowing him to
pump ~,an undetermined
amount of diesel into an -

charged with criminal mis-
chief, felony theft, felony

Getting Santa's ride ready


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Tammy Fox was hard at work Monday night getting the Sebring Christmas float ready to
carry Santa and Mrs. Claus on Dec. 5. It will be the last float in the Sebring parade and
boasts an actual house with a porch complete with a neat white fence. Fox, who has trimmed
out almost as many floats as are in the Rose Bowl parade, has been at work for some time
on this masterpiece. She said Josie Palmerton, Terry Caauwe, John McManus and Miguel
Rios also helped.


Public meeting about Lake Anoka

levels planned for Dec. 4


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Southwest Florida Water
Management District is seeking public input
about proposed minimum levels for Lake
Anoka south of Avon Park.
A minimum flow or level is the limit at
which further water withdrawals will cause
significant harm to the water resources and/or
environment. The district governing board sets
these limits as part of achieving a balance
between meeting human water needs and those
of Florida's natural systems. Minimum lake
levels are used as guidelines in district permit-
ting programs, for development of water
resource projects and as information for devel-
opment bordering lakes.
A public workshop on proposed minimum
levels for Lake Anoka will be held Thursday,
Dec. 4 at the Bert J. Harris Jr. Agriculture
Center, 4509 George Blvd., Sebring. The
meeting will begin at 5 p.m.
This meeting will provide an important
.opportunity for local ;governments, citizens
-and others to be part of the development of
minimum flows and levels for the lake.


Public comment gathered at the meeting
will be summarized and presented to the gov-
erning board when staff presents the recom-
mended minimum levels of the district's
Tuesday, Dec. 16 governing board meeting. At
that time, the governing board may choose to
adopt the minimum levels into district rules.
Governing board meetings are open to the
public where brief oral comments are permit-
ted on meeting agenda items.
Written comments are also welcome and can
be submitted via e-mail to Doug Leeper, sen-
ior environmental scientist, no later than
Monday, Dec. 15. The addresses are 2379
Broad St.. Brookesville. FL 34604-6899 or
Doug.Leeper@watermatters.org.
A draft report containing information on the
development of minimum levels for Lake
Anoka is available under the Minimum Flows
and Levels heading on the Documents and
Publications page of the district's Web site,
WaterMatters.org. For more information, con-
tact Leeper at (352) 196-7211, ext. 4272 or
(800) 423-1476, ext. 4272.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


A time to count your


blessings, large and small


One of the wonderful things about
America is its signature holiday -
Thanksgiving. Life is so fast paced
and complicated, so full of demands,
deadlines and payments due that too often
we get lost in the details of our problems
and forget all the things that go well, or
heal us, or reward us.


Creating a special day for
reflection and gratitude -
and to build it around families
and friends gathering together
for a special meal is one of
our best inventions.
Here in the news room we
are grateful to be a part of a
tight knit team that not only
enjoys each other's company,
but learn from each other
every day. And of course, we
are thankful for the opportu-
nity to keep you informed,
amused and thinking about
our community.
Calling other leaders in
Highlands County we found
them all in the same frame of
mind. Some thought in terms
of the work they do, many
counted personal blessings.
Mayor Tom Katzanis of
Lake Placid, for example,
said, "I'm thankful to be
alive. I'm 75 and praise the
Lord in good health with a
body in good enough shape so


I can play tennis five days a
week and still water ski using
only one ski."
Katzanis also mentioned
his joy in his family, his wife,
his four children, and all 14 of
his grandchildren. He was
especially grateful that the
Grace Bible Church is vibrant
and thriving under the leader-
ship of his son, Andrew. He is
grateful for the opportunity to
serve the city. "Every day I
am mayor I feel blessed," he
said.
Brenda Gray, a member of
the Avon Park City Council,
also is thankful for her health
and strength, but even more
important, she says, "I thank
God he let this election be
such a success and led the cit-
izens of the United States to
elect an African-American
president, a Godly man, so the
country can move ahead
together."
Gray added she thanks God


for helping her and her col-
leagues on the council make
good decisions for their com-
munity.
Sandy Foster, director of
Nu-Hope, said, "I'm thankful
that all our staff are available
to help our consumers, and
that even though the budget
for next year doesn't look too
good, we're still going to be
able to provide all our servic-
es to the over 750 people who
need them."
David Greenslade, chief
executive officer of the Avon
Park Chamber of Commerce,
having survived a scare
regarding his wife's health
had her front and center in his
mind. "I'm just basically
thankful that my wife is on
the mend and will be around
for a long time," he said.
As for Sheriff Susan
Benton, she said, "I am thank-
ful for the wonderful men and
women of the sheriff's office,
out there every day." Then she
paused just a second and
added, "and for being a Mimi
- there's nothing better than
being a grandmother."
So, this Thanksgiving
count your blessings large and
small, you will probably be
amazed at how much you
have to celebrate and how
many people you hold dear.

All items will run on a first-come basis as space permits, although more timely ones could be moved

As a teenager faced with
the tedious predicament of
growing up, I can't turn away
from an inevitable question.
What kind of person am I
going to be? As cliche as that
sounds, I realize that every-
one must one day, shape or
be shaped into the mold of
their own particular personal
character. Who our role mod-
els are and what our values
will be are additional blanks
to be filled as we mature.
People become who they
are because of their role
models and values, right? Or
at least that is the way that I
see it most often. Call it
emulation, imitation or what-
ever, everyone everywhere,
whether consciously or not,
is trying to live up to some
standard.
Take for example some-
thing as mundane as dieting.
The media insists that we try
such and such diet because it
is so easy to lose "10 pounds
in 10 weeks" and then you
see all these people who sup-
posedly went on the diet and
lost an insane amount of
weight. They'll tell you how
happy they are and how
much better they feel, and so
on. The worst dieting com-
mercials include some
celebrity or notable figure to
somehow insist that this diet
was the best one, the way to
go.
But why do we feel com-
pelled to choose this diet?
Why do we choose to zero in
on that celebrity telling us to
try their product? Are we so
disillusioned by the media
and its spawn of Hollywood
stars that we feel compelled
to live up to them?
Young girls who want to
be the next Hannah Montana,
teenage boys that want to be
rich like their favorite rap
artists, wives who want their
husbands to be just a little
more like George Clooney,
the list goes on; this is all
just a modern form of hero
worship.
Why is it that those
"flashy" magazines that blare


Guest
Column
Suzannah Beiner

the personal news of movie
stars are such big sellers?
Why should the average per-
son care if "Tom and Katie's
Marriage Is On the Rocks"?
Is this an escape from reality
into the glitzy and far more
"appealing" world of celebri-
ties? People must feel some
satisfaction from Brittany's
downward spiral. Maybe
they're thinking, "I may not
be as rich as her, but at least
I can control my life." Or
better yet, those articles
about how to redecorate your
house just like the celebs ...
Don't get me wrong; not
all "hero worship" is bad, but
when we let it consume us to
the point of obsession, we
have lost ourselves in trans-
lation. We strive so hard to
measure ourselves against
this person or idea, that we
have forgotten our own iden-
tity, our own personal flair.
America has become
extremely shallow and
voyeuristic over the last cen-
tury. While it's great to
investigate how the other
side lives, we shouldn't
dwell on it. Instead of focus-
ing on the stuff that has no
influence on our life, we
should concentrate on what
- pertains to our own lives.
And as the media finishes
encompassing everything we
are involved with, I just hope
we don't let it define us. The
kids of today need to know
where to draw the line
between emulation and indi-
viduality. The old adage
about "Be your own person"
hopefully will never become
"Be an individual, be like
me."

TODAY'S LETTERS


9-11 plaque dedicated in LP
Editor:
Well, we finally got it. On Sunday, Nov.
16, a ceremony was held for the dedication of
the 9-11 memorial plaque in front of Heron's
Gardens by the flag pole.
A group of about 50 persons gathered to
honor and remember all the men and women
who were lost on that fateful day in our histo-
ry.
Our prayer was led by Larry Overfield of
the Heartland Riders Association, followed by
the flag presentation by the Honor Guard
from American Legion Post 25. Gary Filip led
in the singing of our national anthem. He also
played some patriotic music on his guitar,
very much appreciated by all. We had some
speeches that were made by Stanford Wright,
J.P. Plunkett, Joseph Dionne and yours truly.
We wish this memorial to be an everlasting
tribute and hopefully it will remind all of us
what happened that day that has changed our
world forever. When you view this plaque,
we want you to know that the 21st century
began with a great struggle between the forces
of freedom and the forces of terror. May you
also know that this generation of Americans
did not fail or falter and freedom prevailed
because of the desire of liberty that lives in
the heart of each of us on this earth.
We who were in attendance, renewed our
vows never to forget how this tragedy hap-
pened but it did. This is our small way of
remembering.
We remember the looks of horror on the
terrorists acts, but we look with honor on the
acts of courage by our ordinary people who
made sacrifices themselves to prevent further
death and destruction. We have shed our tears
for those that were lost and have turned our
grief to determination to resolve to do what is
good and right. Help us to remember what it
means to be Americans a people endowed
with rich and abundant blessings. Help us to
cherish the freedoms we enjoy daily and
inspire us to stand with courage as one nation
under God, in the midst of adversity.
I wish to sincerely thank all who took the
time out of their daily schedule to attend this
ceremony. Your kindness is very much appre-
ciated.
Thanks also to the following for their gen-
erosity in making this event possible.
American Legion Post 25 and VFW Post

There's more than one
game in town
Editor:
I'd like to add my two cents with regard to
Betty L. Howard's letter of Nov. 14th
(Paying more for less doesn't make sense)
concerning Comcast removing numerous
channels in some program lineups and mov-
ing them into others.
In October I also noticed I was missing
about five channels out of my "full basic"
lineup, which I pay $49.50/month for. I put
off inquiring about the matter until I received
my November bill from Comcast. When my


bill arrived I found no explanation for the
channels deletion, and my monthly premium
remained the same.
I contacted Comcast and was told my miss-
ing channels had been moved to another line-
up (which I don't subscribe to), and that if I
wanted to receive them I must come to
Comcast and pick up a box, at no charge.
However, I was only entitled to one box, and
if I needed additional boxes I would have to
pay more than $1/month/box. I have four TV
sets in my home, hence I would need three
additional boxes, which would increase my
cable TV bill by well over $3/month (approx-
imately a 7 percent increase).
I was't given the option to have my month
premium decreased accordingly for the loss
of the five channels, but would be now forced
to pay more for the exact service I was
heretofore paying for.
I expressed to the Comcast customer serv-
ice representative that this program change
was nothing short of a back door price
increase and that I did't plan on accepting
it, having been a Comcast subscriber for more
than 20 years. I informed the representative
that I also have Comcast Hi-speed internet
service ($42.95/month, plus $3 modem
rental), and now, because of their take-it-or-
leave-it action, I will inquire into purchasing
my TV service via satellite TV, and will also
find a new Internet service provider.


Lastly, I told the Comcast representative
that in this downturned economy, with all of
us suffering and having to tighten our finan-
cial belts, I felt Comcast could also do their
share and not try to pass on back door price
increases to loyal subscribers. It was then our
conversation was quietly cut off and it
was't by me.
At present time-I'm shopping for satellite
TV and Internet service providers. Once I've
obtained them Comcast's services to me will
be quietly cut off for there's more than one
game in town.

Thoughts for the local officials
Editor:
An open letter to newly and re-elected
county officials and citizens: Given the
results of the election and the renewed sense
of hope that seems to be spreading, here are
some thoughts for our local officials:
Sheriff (Susan) Benton A hope that you
will take a step back and look at some of the
ideas that Mr. (Ron) Grimming had when it
comes to barracks-style housing for inmates.
In these tough economic times, perhaps it
would be best to save instead of spend.
Mr. (Bob) Germaine The hope that the
audit process will continue in the Clerk of
Courts office uninterrupted and without bias.
Also, that the Clerk of Courts office staff
remains as it was before the election. There
are qualified and good people that will be
under your leadership, use them wisely.
Mr. (Jeff) Carlson A sincere hope that
you will go into your newly elected position
with an open mind and new ideas.
Mr. (Guy) Maxcy That you will take the
opportunity that the voters have granted you
for a fifth and final term and improve
Highlands County for those that will follow
in your footsteps.
And finally for the citizens of Highlands
County The hope that we all will not just go
back into our homes until the next election
rolls around. We must hold all of our elected
officials accountable for their decisions and
actions. Hold them to the promises that were
made during their respective campaigns. If
they do not follow through, let them know.
Start attending the meetings and following
more closely than many of us have done in
the past. This is our county; it is pit respolnsi,
ability to make sure that it is protected.

County commission approves funding for Lake Clay clean-up project


Continued from page 1A
to grow and you will cause major
blooms, noxious algae blooms ... and
decreases in water clarity," Ford
said. "Lake Clay is fortunate there is
not that many storm water points
that drain into the lake."
Lead and zinc also make their way
into the lake in runoff, which con-
cern County Commissioner Don
Bates.
"There are a lot of people in it,
they swim in it," he said. "I think it's
time we do something with it. We
just need to catch it before it gets


any worse."
Former Lake Placid town council
member and board member of the
Highlands County Lakes
Association Deborah Worley said
the county installed a drainage pipe
to keep the area from flooding long
before they knew all the facts.
"We had water, water goes into
the lake," she said. "But now we
know water carries these pollutants.
All the asphalt, all the rooftops, it
picks up all the pollutants and runs
into the lake."
Due to the geography of the area,


namely steep hills running from the
plaza to the lake, there isn't much to
stop the storm water from entering
the lake without being filtered.
Phase one of the project will be to
design storm water swails and other
techniques along with securing prop-
erty.
"It takes a little bit of land but the
town (of Lake Placid) is working on
getting those easements in place,"
Ford said.
Swails collect water and filter it
through grass and soil.
"Using some grass swails, not real


fancy fixes but things that work, we
don't have to spend a lot of money,"
Bates said.
The final cost is estimated to be
between $271,000 and $428,000,
with they county's obligation esti-
mated to be $107,000, a presentation
given by Ford said.
"We are working on a cooperative
agreement and request the water
management district fund three quar-
ters of the project," he said.
The projected completion date is
April of 2011, with funding for the
major portion of the project coming


from the fiscal year 2010 budget.
"Like Commissioner Bates point-
ed out (at Tuesday's meeting), it's a
lot cheaper to take care of the prob-
lem now at the source rather than
trying to remove (contaminants)
from the lake when they are already
in there," Ford said.
Annual maintenance is estimated
at $1,000 to $2,500.
Bates commended Worley for her
work on the project, saying she
stayed with it and didn't give up.
"The future looks very good,"
Worley said.

Diamond Steppers get reprieve on rent


Continued from page 2A
only this group, we decided
that to be fair we needed to
charge your group rent. We did
decide to use the lowest rent
available," added Adelt.
"As long as you don't want
to use a room, or are keeping
other activities from going on,
or anyone can participate with
you, I think that's open gym,"
said Adelt.
"If it is open gym, and no
one else is there, we feel it is
not necessary to pay $15 per
hour to use a community
recreation center," Lois Jones,
current chairperson of FCCA.
"We have no problem there.
No one is using the facility at
10 a.m. on Saturday morning,
and we are willing to share, so
why the rent? And nobody is
up there that we are going to
interfere with, but we can eas-
ily come out and use another
part of the building if someone
needs the room," added Jones.
"I feel real bad that we have
to charge our children to use
the city facilities," said coun-
cilman AlJoe Hinson. "This is
a community service, and they
help these kids and make sure
they stay out of trouble. If you
have never seen them perform,
you should. They are a good


group."
Although city council mem-
ber Joe Wright eventually
made the motion to allow the
group to continue to use the
facility at no charge for now,
he seemed to take offense at a
reference used in a grass-roots
letter sent out to the Stepper
parents'
"I Want to mention one
thing, included in our packet
to parents, and let me tell you
there was something in there
that offends me ... we have
family and friends in the south
side of Avon Park. There is a
line here, the next-to-the-last
sentence, there is a phrase in
there and I do not know who it
refers to. If it is to the council
or the city manager or what,
but I did want to mention
that," said Wright.
The line Wright is referring
to says: "It never fails that
when something positive
comes to a small community
the enemy kicks against it."
Members of the FCCA
asserted to Wright that it was a
spiritual reference, and not a
direct attack against anyone in
particular.
"That's spiritual," said
Jones. "All we are doing is
using a facility that is empty


on Saturday mornings, there is
no one else in there except a
couple of young men using the
work-out equipment."
"I want to remind the coun-
cil that if we continue to let
them use that facility with no
rental fee, then if anyone
comes to the city and wishes to
rent that facility, then they
would have to find somewhere
else to go. We are trying to
compensate the city for the use
of our facility. Yes, it is a com-
munity building, but it also has
to have maintenance and
repairs," said Mayor Sharon
Schuler.
After several minutes of dis-
cussion, it was pointed out that
there is no set policy for rental
of the recreation center, and
the council directed the city
manager to work on that after
the first of the year.
"We need to turn loose of
the dollar here. We are talking
about our children here,"
exclaimed a frustrated Davis.
Wright finally made the
motion to give the Steppers the
non-exclusive right to use the
center until a policy is in
place, and it passed with just
councilman George Hall and
Schuler saying no.

Andrews facing felony charges


Continued from page 1A
Andrews. We will wait to see
the legal process work through
its appropriate channels."
According to City Attorney
Robert Swaine, a city council
has no say in deciding whether
a sitting council member
accused of a crime may remain
seated on the council. That
decision is made by the gover-
nor, who is not required by law
to suspend someone accused
of crimes.
A council cannot keep a
member if the governor orders
that individual to stand down,
nor can it suspend an individ-
ual the governor allows to
remain. No decisions on
Andrews' status with the coun-
cil have been made at this
time.
According to the state attor-
ney's complaint affidavit,
Andrews was hired by the
chamber in March 2005. By
October of that year his salary
had been raised from $38,000
to $50,000.
When he was hired,
Andrews was issued a Bank of
America Visa credit card in the
name of the chamber. Later he
opened an American Express
credit card, also in the name of
the chamber. Both of those
bills were paid by the cham-
ber.
At the time Toni Kopp
worked as the chamber's
bookkeeper.
The prior chamber direc-
tor's policy had Kopp receiv-
ing all the chamber credit card
receipts for charges made on
the chamber's credit card.
Typically, Kopp was refunded
in cash for any personal
expenses.
Kopp has told investigators
Andrews never gave her any
receipts, saying he either told
her he had them at home, or
outright refused to produce
them. She also said Andrews
would intercept credit card
statements and that Andrews
would tell her that chamber
bills didn't have to be paid
gyery month.
S, Around Christmas 2005,
Andrews allegedly charged
jewelry from Tiffany &
Company, costing $499.69, to
the chamber account. When it
appeared on the chamber state-
ment, Kopp told investigators
she asked Andrews to reim-
burse the cost. She was dis-
missed shortly after and does
not know if Andrews ever
made restitution.
Although chamber by-laws
require an annual audit, none
have been done since May
2005. That review was con-
ducted by Wicks, Brown,
Williams & Company.
After Kopp left the cham-
ber, Andrews requested the
board hire the NCT Group to
handle accounts payable, cut
checks and do basic account-
ing support work.
However, according to
statements to investigators by
NCT Group, that accounting
work could never be done
because it never received com-
plete information from
Andrews, instead getting only
sporadic bank statements.
Andrews allegedly told
NCT Group that he was trying
to catch up on his paperwork
so he could pass everything on
to them.
Because Andrews had
worked for Carlson
Accounting prior to the cham-
ber, the NCT Group told
investigators it felt that he had
the necessary knowledge and
experience to gather together
the papers the group was
requesting.
NCT Group also believed at
the time that the chamber's
board was aware of Andrews'
actions.
In October 2007, a letter to
the board from the group ask-
ing for a discussion of the
issues was dropped off at the
chamber's office, but the


board never received it.
It wasn't until Jan. 21 of this
year that the group sent a letter
by mail directly to the board
and received a response.
In their review of chamber
records, investigators discov-
ered what they allege is a pat-
tern of inappropriate chamber
credit card use.
For example, since March


2005 Andrews charged
$4,106.85 to the chamber's
credit card for meals, and
asked for additional reim-
bursement for other meals.
According to the affidavit,
even though Andrews received
checks for mileage, he also
charged gas, car washes, and
other service to his vehicle to
the cards. The total for those
items is $1,908.45, which has
not been refunded to the cham-
ber.
Sarah Pallone, newly
appointed executive director,
is quoted in the affidavit as
saying that while she often
rode with Andrews in his car
on business, she never
observed him recording
mileage on trips.
The investigator states that
while Andrews at first claimed
those travel-related charges -
which originally were a larger
amount were the result of
legitimate business expenses;
he shortly presented a reim-
bursement check to the cham-
ber that included gas charged
to the company credit card as
well as cell phone charges for
his wife.
But there have been other
questionable charges that have
not been reimbursed, includ-
ing several made in 2006: one
in March to Beall's Depart-
ment Store for $137.38 and
another in April to South
Florida Community College's
box office for $460.
In November 2006, the
chamber sponsored an event
the Key Leader Reception
held at Andrews' home.
Andrews had received no,
permission from the chamber
to pay for any repairs or reno-
vations to his home with
chamber money. However,
four charges relating to home
or garden care were allegedly
marked by Andrews as being
related to the Key Leader
event. Two charges were from
Home Depot, one from
Sherwin Williams and one
from Robbins Nursery. These
totaled $1,252.88.
The investigating officer,
Jeanette Dugas, of the state
attorney's office, writes in her
report about those charges,
"most interesting is that while
the Key Leader was held in
November 2006, the Robbins
Nursery transaction ($325.40)
did not occur until March
2007. The plants were
installed at Andrews' home."
In November 2007,
Andrews is alleged to have
purchased a set of Mizuno
brand golf irons that cost
$625.91 using the chamber's
American Express card.
While the chamber did hold
a golf tournament in that time
frame, no Mizuno irons were
raffled or given as prizes.
In a meeting of the chamber
board in February 2008,
Andrews was asked to explain
certain discrepancies, includ-
ing the irons. He is said to
have replied that the clubs
were a door prize for the tour-
nament, that they weren't his,
and he would find them.
Dugas continues that to date
they have not turned up.
Accusations of inappropri-
ate credit card use are not the
only charge facing Andrews.
There are problems with the
chamber's Scholarship Fund
as well.
Before Andrews took over
as director of the chamber, the
scholarship fund was designat-
ed as a restricted fund.
Andrews asked the board for
permission to transfer the fund
into a higher-yielding account.
He was told to discuss the idea
with Alan Wildstein, of Alan
Jay Automotive, who was the
primary contributor.
There is no further record of
the issue in chamber minutes.
However, after reaching a high
balance of $74,236.41 in
August 2006 (soon after Kopp
had been terminated) a series


In addition to the $65,500
transferred out of the account,
deposits to the scholarship
fund were diverted to the oper-
ating account. Investigators
say those deposits total about
$12,100.
Andrews attended the
chamber's board meeting on
Feb. 22 when he was asked
about the scholarship account.
According to witnesses he said
he had "borrowed" the money
for operating cash. Witnesses
also said Andrews admitted he
knew he did not have approval
to move the funds.
According to the investiga-
tor's affidavit, asked why he
had continued to report a bal-
ance of about $75,000 for the
scholarship account on finan-
cial statements, Andrews said
it was "an error" and should
have been reported as a liabil-
ity.
Witnesses also reported that
while Andrews was presenting
financial statements to the
board, he did not always
include balance sheets in the
meeting packet.
Balance sheets he did pres-
ent to board meetings through-
out 2007 showed falsified bal-
ances. for the scholarship
account.
In addition, Andrews may
have written .and cashed at
least five checks that either
indicated they were for
mileage that had already been
reimbursed or had no explana-
tion. Undeposited membership
dues checks were found in the
chamber's storage unit, as
were unopened vendors' bills
dating back to 2006.
Pallone's paycheck bounced
three times, and her health
insurance was canceled for
.non-payment.
As of Tuesday, calls to
Andrews home went unan-
swered. He did not yet have an
attorney on record.
Calls to members of the
Sebring City Council went
.unanswered, but the holiday
week means many could be
out of town.
.According to the state'
attorney s office, Andrews will
probably be arraigned on Dec.
22.


Thanksgiving Feast


News-Sun photo by TREY CHRISTY
Something on the buffet line catches the eye of Lake Placid Christian School students
Shelbi Bertram, 13, (left) and Taylor Test, 13, Friday during the school's 30th annual
Thanksgiving Feast. 'It's our way of thanking businesses that have helped us through the
years,' said LPCS Headmaster Dennis Griffin. The event, which attracts up to 400 people
every year, started in 1978. Griffin joined the school just two years later and continues
to keep the tradition.




CRA moves ahead with airport zoning


Continued from page 1A
C.B. Shirey, current airport
manager, replied from the
audience that it had not been
overlooked by Buhr or any
other attorney.
"I do not think that what is
being proposed here is in line
with state statutes. You are
required to by statute to make
what is called legislative
findings. And I do not know
if there has been a newspaper
notice or not. I don't believe
that the proposal itself com-
plies with Florida law. I don't
think you can justify the use
of the funding on this. I think
you need to defer this and get :
some legal advice on this,
that is my recommendation,"
Furr told the council.
City Manager Sarah Adelt
thought there had been a pub-
lic notice in the newspaper,
but was not positive of the
date.
Furr is the attorney who


represents Roland Dilley, a
property owner who has
approached the city council
before about: developing
adjacent land, and has inter-
ests in any zoning that may
take place.
"I am glad that you
brought that up, because if
this has not been reviewed by
Buhr, because he (Buhr) does
not sit in on these (CRA
meetings), by the time we go
into the city council meeting,
I want to know that he has
reviewed this. At this point
we are just blessing the CRA
advisory board recommenda-
tions," said council member
Brenda Gray.
"I don't know why you
would want to do that
frankly, but that is procedure
you have chosen to follow
and I am not here to comment
on that. But on the merits, the
I6dinance has serious legal
deficiencies," said Furr.
"The ordinance has not


passed; we are just passing
the recommendations to go
on to the city council," said
Schuler.
"We are just passing it on
in the same form. At that time
Mr. Buhr will have an oppor-
tunity to give us his input and
anyone else can give us their
input. We have been working
hard and trying to do what
everyone has asked us to do.
A joint airport commission,
that is something you have
been hollering about all the
time," said Schuler.
Furr.left the room and the
CRA, which is also the sit-
ting city council, approved 4-
1 to send it back to them-
selves at the couiicil meeting.
Councilman AlJoe Hinson
was the no vote.
But then after more discus-
sion after Furr's departure,
the group decided as ity "
council to pull the resolution
off of the city agenda.


of eight withdrawals against
the account, over a period of
three months, depleted the bal-
ance until in November 2006 it
had only $345.48.
The first charge against that
account was for $7,295.62 for
the awards banquet catering.
Up until this time, the
chamber had paid for the ban-
quet out of operating funds.

Produce industry leader Stuart named president of RCMA


Special to the News-Sun
BALM Mike Stuart, pres-
ident of the Florida Fruit &
Vegetable Association, on
Monday was named president
of the Redlands Christian
Migrant Association, which
provides child care and early
education for children of farm
workers and other working-
poor families throughout rural
Florida.
Stuart, who has served on
RCMA's Board of Directors
since January 2005, succeeds
retired Tampa labor attorney
John Dinkel, who has been on
the RCMA board since 1985
and has moved to Virginia. He
will retain status as an hon-
orary board member and
assist with RCMA's legal
matters. Stuart was elected
unanimously by the RCMA
board at its meeting at the
University of Florida's Gulf
Coast Research and Education
Center in Balm.
"RCMA provides vital
services to the families of
Florida's farmworker commu-
nities," Stuart said. "I'm
happy to serve an organiza-
tion dedicated to giving these
children such a solid educa-
tional foundation."
Based in Maitland, FFVA is
a non-profit agricultural trade
organization whose mission is
to enhance the business and
competitive environment for
producing and marketing


fruits, vegetables and other
crops. A longtime supporter of
RCMA, FFVA is the leading
voice of Florida agriculture.
"We are delighted that
Mike Stuart has agreed to take
on the additional responsibili-
ties of being our president,"
said RCMA Executive
Director Barbara Mainster.
"Our partnership with grow-
ers extends
back to our
creation in
1965, and
with Mike
Stuart as our
president, the
Stuart children and
families we
serve will have a strong advo-
cate among Florida growers
and among, our state's politi-
cal and business leaders."
Established in 1965 in the
Redlands growing area of
Miami-Dade County, RCMA
serves approximately 8,000
children at more than 70
childcare centers in rural
areas of 21 Florida counties.
More than half of its centers
are nationally accredited,
reflecting standards that far
exceed licensing require-
ments.
In Highlands County,
RCMA has nine centers, more
than 100 employees and
serves approximately 700
children.

RCMA is governed by a 41-
member board, which

market chain, Stuart has
served for more than two
decades as an association
executive representing grow-
ers and shippers in California,
Arizona and Florida. He has
led FFVA as president since
1992.
Stuart holds leadership
positions with numerous
industry groups at the nation-
al and international level. He
was recently named to board
of the Fruit and Vegetable
Dispute Resolution Corp.,
which has members from the
United States, Canada and
Mexico.
In 2006, Stuart was named
to the USDA Fruit and
Vegetable Industry Advisory
Committee and is vice chair-
man. Since 1995, he has
served on the, Agricultural

Chaplain Shirley Foster gave an amusing read-

The mall holiday decorations committee
reported that the city does not have funds or

city supplied lighting, security, and some setup
labor. Many aging club members are no longer
able to set up decorations without assistance.
Regretfully, a motion was made and carried to

Fortunately, the word spread and two generous

Luz Villalobos and her son Ariel accept the Yard of the
Month Award from Anita Helbig of the Avon Park Founders
Garden Club.


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Last month, a
drive down Winthrop Street would
not have drawn a second look at
any yard in particular. Now a
drive down the street causes one to
notice the yard at 26 Winthrop St.
The eye is drawn to the yard caus-
ing a slow down to get a better
look at the landscape.
The yard of Bruno and Luz
Villalobos has undergone a com-
plete transformation. The Avon
Park Founders Garden Club has
presented the November Yard of
the Month Award to the couple for
making such a difference in their
neighborhood.
The transformation took just
two weeks for Mr. Villalobos and a
friend to complete. The plants
were chosen because they liked the
mixture of colors and textures of
the plants. Tt turns out that they


complement the house and are the
right plants for the size of the beds.
The walk leading up to the
house is lined by two beds framed
with landscape timbers.
In each bed are liriope, arborico-
la trinette, red sister cordyline, cal-
adiums, small shrubs, Phoenix
robellinii palms and a fish tail
palm. All plants are attractively
arranged and a size that comple-
ments the home.
Red mulch placed around the
plants gives the beds a finished
look.
In the side yard is another bed
with a row of golden dewdrop,
ferns, palms and small shrubs.
Other plants in the yard include
hibiscus, periwinkle and crown of
thorns.
If you know of someone that
deserves the Yard of the Month
Award, call 452-1927.

Legion Auxiliary kicks off National

Education Week at HGMS


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK -The Avon
Park American Legion
Auxiliary Unit 69 took the
opportunity to educate the
sixth- grade world history
class at Hill-Gustat Middle
School as well as Nord
Elementary School in Ohio
about the endangered mana-
tees in Florida during
National Education Month.
Department of Florida
Auxiliary President Kathee
Coughlin is also a teacher and
wanted to give each district in
Florida an endangered specie
to adopt and take its plight
into the district's hometowns.
District 8, led by President
Darlene Watkin, was excited
when they were assigned the
manatee. Being a manatee
lover for some time', Watkin
saw. this as a way to educate
the children in the district, the
community and the American


Legion about this endangered
specie.
Jimmy Buffet, singer/song-
writer, started the Save A
Manatee Foundation and
through his great enthusiasm
has started a national aware-
ness. Each of the units in
District 8, which stretches
from Venice to Ellenton, and
all the units on the Ridge have
adopted a manatee and are
working to educate the public
about what can be done to
preserve these creatures of the
planet that are near extinc-
tion.
This program is just one of
many that the American
Legion Auxiliary has that
gives back to the youth, the
community, education,
Americanism, and the veter-
ans.
Since the onset of this Save
the Manatee, Programy in
September, 46 manatees have


been adopted by children,
schools, units, individuals and
organizations.
During this time of learning
the children at Hill-Gustat
Middle, under the direction of
teacher Todd Hutchison, will
see films, do activity books,
posters, learn the manatee
habits, dangers from humans,
diet, evaluation, and why they
are endangered.
These great gentle "giants,"
sea cows or better known as
manatees, harm no one and
everyone needs to protect
their existence as a valued
part of the environment.
Through the direction of
Education Chairman and
District 8 President Darlene
Watkin and her fellow
Auxiliary sisters they are ask-
ing for help to get the job
-done. To learn more go to
www.savethemanatee.com.

Program, The School Board of Highlands
County and Highlands County Mentor/Tutor
Program hosted the fifth annual Volunteer
Appreciation Lunch at the Elks Lodge at
noon Thursday.
In light of the news reports about educa-
tion the past couple of months, it is refresh-
ing to know that at least 1,000 Highlands
County citizens contribute their time, effort
and experience to assist students in reaching
grade level and gain insight to the social
morels of the community.
About 70 of 203 volunteers who con-
tributed 50 or more hours in the county
public schools showed up to enjoy a
delightful buffet and receive certificates
acknowledging their service to the schools
and community. Dr. Rodney Hollinger rep-
resented Supt. Wally Cox, who was at the
school board Thanksgiving dinner.
In addition, five volunteers were honored
for exceptional service. They were two stu-
dents and three adults. This is the second
year that students have served as mentors to
fellow students. County Commissioner
Barbara Stewart's mother, who is 90,
received a certificate. This is proof one is
not too young nor old to be a mentor.
First place student went to Jerry Lee
Wright for contributing an outstanding
1,220 hours at Avon Park High and Park
Elementary schools. Sean Lambert con-
tributed 400 hours at Kindergarten Learning
Center. Both received plaques.
First place Deborah Barbara contributed

HEALTH & NUTRITION


Blood donors

can double

their giving
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Florida's
Blood Centers and the
Florida Association of Food
Banks are working together
to give life, food and hope to
the community. The second-
annual Season of Giving is a
unique partnership that
allows donors to double their
giving this holiday season.
During the Season of
Giving (through Dec. 31), all
FBC blood donors will
receive a $10 Publix gift
card. They may keep the
cards for their own holiday
food expenses, or they may
return them to FBC, which
will donate them to the food
bank in the donor's commu-
nity. The cards will go to
families who need help dur-
ing the holiday season.
Everyone who donates
blood at the FBC branch loca-
tion or on the Big Red Bus
will receive the Publix gift
card as an incentive through
Dec. 31.
The public is encouraged
to participate in the Season of
Giving by calling 382-4499.
Check the eligibility ques-
tions on the Web site at
www.floridasbloodcenters.or
g.
FBC Highlands Center is at
6550 U.S. 27 North (across
from the Quality Inn).
Any person who has ever
considered giving blood
should contact Florida's
Blood Centers. Cancer
patients are in daily need of
treatment, burn victims use
plasma, trauma victims need
red blood transfusions, and
routine surgeries depend on
the gift of a volunteer donor.
Donors can be as young as 16
and should weight at least
102 pounds. There is no
upper age limit.
Florida's Blood, Centers
currently needs all blood
types.
Every donation is separat-
ed into components in the
region and will be transfused
into a patient usually within
two to three days.

Florida Hospital Home Care

Services celebrates November

as 'National Home Care Month'


Special to the News-Sun
More than 11 million Americans receive
home-delivered health care from home
health care providers. In their honor,
Florida Hospital Home Care Services joins
the National Association for Home Care &
Hospice in celebrating November as
National Home Care Month under the
theme, "Preserving Health Independence
and Freedom." i
"Caring for the sick, elderly and dying
in their homes truly is a privilege for us,"
Tim Cook, chief executive officer/presi-
dent of Florida Hospital Heartland
Division. "Home care professionals and
modern medicine make it possible for peo-
ple to stay safe and comfortable in their
homes, regardless of their condition."
"Most patients do not want to give up
their independence and freedom, so home
health care is a perfect alternative to a
nursing home," Florida Hospital Home
Care Services Registered Nurse Linda
May said.
Through technological advances, home-
delivered health care has grown far
beyond basic professional nursing and


home care aide services. Florida Hospital
Home Care Services offers a wealth of

After a bout with lung cancer and now
cancer-free, Florida Hospital Home Care
Services patient Florence Goode is happy
to be back in her own home. "Linda has
become a good friend of mine," Goode
said. "She has helped me get back on my
feet and live my life."
Educating and caring for her clients are
most important to May, a 34-year veteran
in the nursing field. "I provide extensive
teaching for my patients so they can learn
how to live with their disease, instead of
the disease living through them," May
said.
Florida Hospital Home Care Services
has been serving Highlands, Hardee and
Polk counties for more than 15 years. They
specialize in caring for their patients phys-
ical health, as well as their emotional and
spiritual well being in their home.

Sebring
Recreation Club
By Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING When you are
a club member it appears that
friends are looking after you
just as family. The line
dancers have a photo on the
bulletin board at the club and
a couple was looking at this
and exclaiming how good the
picture was. Members do care
for one another more than you
know. Have you been to the
beginners lessons Wednesday
from 5:15-6:15 p.m. yet? The
lessons are free to all club
members. We still have plenty
of room for you and friends at
line dancing. Wednesday is
the day at the club for line
dancing from 6:30-8:30 at this
time.
Ping-pong needs more
players and also a couple of
new tables, with someone to
look after them. If you have
any idea about ping-pong
tables, see Ed Straub or Tom
Bruba. Len Jasinski is one
that enjoys table tennis and is
known by players like Grover
Niergarth. Marcia and Ralph
Rhoten are both names well
known at the ping-pong
tables. Beverly Ramos is
known at the bridge tables as
well as ping-pong. It is
always good when members
are active in more than one
area at the club.
Irvin Ishman was 95 years
old Oct. 14. Ed Williams is
getting around slow but has
been out to see us on the
courts. Bill Hann had his
shoulder surgery Nov. 10 and
it would not surprise me if he
shuffled Nov. 15 with his
other hand. Pat Dell and
Rosella have been back shuf-
fling with us along with Hamp
and Norma Hardy. When
Rosella and Norma are oppo-
nents you get to see what
good fun is all about. They
enjoy each other and every
thing around them. It is nice
when people enjoy the game


and you hear laughter.
See John Bushee about pur-
chasing your preview, still
only $1 even with inflation.
John has the list for shuffle-
board lessons. We should all
consider taking lessons just to
refresh our game. Some point-
ers about this game you
should remember: Don't try to
put your opponent in the
kitchen unless necessary. You
may give them a seven instead
of kitchen. Don't try to double
on your last disc with the
hammer unless you are behind
and need the points to catch
up. Don't try to remove an
opponent's disc that is over
half hidden, remove the cover
disc instead. Avoid the center-
line and the outside diagonal
lines. Don't give your oppo-
nent a place to hide when cov-
ering your own disc. A real
simple rule is to keep the
board clean and score with
your hammer; you will be a
winner at this game. Worry
about your own hammer and
let your partner worry about
his or her own game. Having
fun is most important for you.
The Central District tourna-
ment played at Avon Park on
Nov. 13 -14 finds Dorothy
Boonen and John Bushee the
only two pros from Sebring
that were winners. The
Amateur division finds
Marion Reynen and Bill
Schaeffer the only winners
from Sebring.
Bingo at the club starts
Thursday, Dec. 4 at 7 p.m.
Bring some fingerfood to
share and let's have some fun.
Don't forget to bring all of
your friends as your guests.
We do want bingo to grow at
least twice the players than
the past year, with bingo
being avoided like the plague
by club members.
Sebring Florida State
Tournament on Nov. 17-18
finds Ruth Parker, Bill
Schaeffer, Marion Reynen,
Carl Wile winners in the
main. In consolation,
Margaret and Peter White, Pat


Dell and Hamp Hardy, Dean
Bennett and Beverly Hann
w:re winners. These are your
winners from the club, not
listed in any order.
The desk is open from 9
a.m. to noon, just for you.

: :; If you are one of the nearly 6
-million men with erectile dys-
function for whom pills don't
7-----': 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, Sebring, 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.

I suppose when we hear
mention of a Rhodes Scholar,
hearing that the person's
name is Myron wouldn't be
too shocking.
Almost everything else
about this Rhodes Scholar is,
however.
Sure, I could make the
crack that it was shocking
that he won the prestigious
honor despite being a Florida
State student.
But it's more that he's a
student-athlete that begins to
show how remarkable a feat
it is- that Myron Rolle has
accomplished.
Just to have the ability to
play Division I football at
what is somewhat a power
program is one impressive.
To be able to balance aca-
demics and athletics at such
a high level, without that
academic schedule being
filled with Ice Making 101
or Sneaker Lacing Theory,
adds to it exponentially'.

Red Devils hang on to top Dragons


News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE
Alonzo Robertson was a force down low Monday night, scoring 21 points to lead Avon
Park to a 49-41 win at Lake Placid.


By DAN HOEHNE
daniiel.ihoehne@newssiun.com
LAKE PLACID What
could become a bugaboo for
the Red Devils, fortunately
for their sake, didn't come
back to bite them Monday
night.
Despite an 8-for-23 mark
from the free-throw line,
Avon Park held on in a cross-
county contest to top Lake
Placid 49-41.
A tight, back-and-forth first
quarter saw the big men for
each team laden with early
foul trouble as Red Devil
Cleveland Nobles picked up
his second just three minutes
in and Travalier Sholtz was
whistled for number two a lit-
tle less than three min-
utes later. Avon
But Avierre Conner
connected on a short
jumper to close out the
opening frame with an Lake
11-9 lead for Avon
Park.
Kirk Veley canned a
jump shot to open the second
and even things up, but the
Devils drove for eight straight
to open things up.
Conner scored six on two
drives through the lane and
two free throws with Alonzo
Robertson scoring on a fol-
low.
Two Sholtz free throws
halted the run, but Avon Park
ran off 10 of the final 12
points of the period to take a
29-15 lead into the half.
The Dragons got scoring
from four different players in
the third, spreading it around
in trying to cut into the lead.
But the Devils held serve
and kept the lead at 37-25
heading into the final eight
minutes.
Lake Placid quickly cut it
to 37-29 with Veley canning a
jumper and Avery Young driv-

ing for two, but Avon Park
answered back with
Robertson taking control
inside to get the lead back to
45-33.
The Dragons scored three
to get within nine before the
Devils spread the floor, going
into somewhat of a four-cor-
ner offense to just let the
clock whittle down.
Forced to foul, Lake Placid
put Avon Park to the
Park charity stripe for 13
foul shots over the
final two minutes.
But the Devils
laid would only connect on
S four of those, leaving
the door open for the
Dragons.
Devontra Flemming drove
for two to make it 45-38 with
49 seconds left.
After a missed front end of
a one-and-one, Sholtz scored
inside to bring it to 45-40
with 37 seconds remaining.
Conner then hit two free
throws to add to the cushion,
and although 'the Park' still
missed six of their final eight
throws, Lake Placid could
only muster one more point
the rest of the way, providing
for the final margin.
"I'm not too happy with
them right now," Avon Park
head coach Luther Clemons
said afterward. "Our free
throws were horrible again.
That's not the way we're sup-
posed to finish out a game.

Head coach David Veley goes over some strategy with his Green Dragons in Saturday's
finale of the Okeechobee Pre-Season Tournament.

Early three pointers sink Dragons


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
News-Sun sportswriter:
OKEECHOBEE Lake
Placid wasn't able to shake a
slow start in the second
round of the Okeechobee
Preseason Tournament as
Berean Christian topped the
Dragons.73-65.
The slow start was due in
part to several turnovers in
the opening minutes
along with a bundle Berean
of shots that
bounced off the iron.
"We started out
really slow," Green Lake
Dragon head coach
David Veley said.
"We were missing
some intensity to start the
game but we turned it on
there after the first few min-
utes."
At the end of the first
quarter the Dragons found
themselves down 16-8.
Travalier Sholtz led the
Dragons in the paint as he
came away with six of the
eight points in the quarter
but it was the shooting of
Johnny Lantz for the
Bulldogs.that made the dif-


ference.
Lake Placid was able to
shake off the slow start and
put together a solid shooting
performance in the second as
they scored 27 points.
Despite the strong surge,
the Bulldogs put together an
even better one as they went
into intermission with a 44-
35 lead.
Lake Placid had
SChrist. its struggles guard-
13 ing the sharp-shoot-
Sing Lantz who had
15 while Trace
Placid
Lanson hit two shots
5 from behind the
15 arch.
The Green
Dragons got good minutes in
the second quarter from
freshman Deondre Chisolm
who had eight points and
Avery Young who came off
the bench to add eight more.
Lake Placid came out of
halftime on a defensive tear
as they pressured the
Bulldogs into several mis-
takes. With a solid defense,
the Dragons pulled to within
three with 6:30 to go in the
third.


But the Dragons ran out of
gas, allowing the Bulldogs to
finish the quarter on a 17-8
run to go up 61-49.
"We tried to slow down
their offense in the second
half," commented Veley.
"We went from playing zone
to playing man to man and it
shut down the three pointers.
They didn't have any in the
second half."
The Bulldogs were able to
distance themselves from the
Dragons in the final quarter
thanks in part to free throws.
With only 1:44 to go in the
game the Dragons were
down by eight points, but
because they needed to get
the ball back they were
forced to foul.
The Bulldogs made them
pay as they went six-of-nine
from the charity stripe in the
waning minutes.
Lake Placid owned the
paint all night long as the big
men contributed most of the
scoring in the game.
Sholtz led the way with 15
points for the Green Dragons

Double donuts for Sebring soccer

By JOHN BEDELL
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING The score-
board operator at Firemen's
Field had a frustrating
evening Monday.
The guest side of the score-
board got plenty of action, but
it was a different story for the
home teams. The visiting '
Palmetto Tigers rolled past
the Sebring boys 6-0 and the
Lady Streaks were also
shutout by Palmetto 2-0.
"I thought we matched up
pretty well in terms of physi-
cal ability," Sebring coach
Tim Boulay said. "We had
bouts of moving the ball well,
but we certainly didn't have it
the whole game."
When asked about his
team's spirits after the lop-
sided score, Boulay empha- -
sized the big picture.
"A lot of the team takes it


Palmetto very personal-
ly," he said.
"We've got to
6,2 get it out of our
Sebring heads and move
on. It is a long
Season. We're
SpW going to have a
couple losses."
Palmetto jumped on the
Streaks early.
In the game's sixth minute,
Sebring goal keeper Ryan
Cochran was unable to hang
on to a shot and Tiger forward
Michael Martinez quickly put
the loose ball in the net. It
was the first of three goals for
the Palmetto senior.
Eight minutes later,
Palmetto benefited from a
fluke goal. The ball deflected
off Sebring's Austin Brady
and got past Cochran for a 2-
0 Palmetto lead.
Martinez had his second
goal at the 21st minute of the
game. The Tigers used a cor-
ner kick to set up the score for
a 3-0 lead.
Midfielder Jose Zamudio
made it 4-0 at the 51-minute


News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE
Lisa Pryzchocki was able to get to the ball first and clear it
from the Sebring zone, but Palmetto would score two, late,
first-half goals and make them stand up in Monday's 2-0 win
at Firemen's Field.


mark of the game.
Martinez earned his hat
trick seven minutes later. He
was assisted by Julio Zuniga
and Zamudio for a 5-0 lead.
Zamudio had his second
goal at the 74-minute mark to
close the scoring at 6-0.
Palmetto coach Dustin
Dahlquist saw passing, quick-
ness and teamwork as the
keys for the Tigers.
"I think it was a combina-
tion of those things," he said.
"We are a much older team
than we have been in the past.
Our seniors have been playing
together for a long time."


Girls coach Steve Ashley
saw some positive play in his
squad's loss.
"We had some good play
tonight from Lisa Pryzchocki,
Amanda Grimaldo, and Karrie
Lester. Misha Hahn (goal keep-
er) played real well tonight and
kept us in the game.
"We've got to find a way to
get more punch up front. I
feel bad for the girls because
they played well especially in
the second half but we have
nothing to show for it."
Becca Foy and Irene
Gallardo had goals for the
Lady Tigers.

Lake Placid can't

overcome slow start


Continued from 1C
while Chisolm and Wilson
both added 12.
Kirk Vclcy also had a
good night leading the
Dragons down the court as
he finished the game with
11 points.
"We played as a team
tonight," said David Veley.
"We had balanced scoring
from four -of our five
starters. Our guys played
the boards much better than
on Thursday which really
helped us. Being as young


as we are, this is all a learn-
ing experience."
The big blow for the
Dragons was the play of
Lantz in the first half as he
had 23 points and finished
with 39.
Nine out of the 16 points
for Lantz came from the free
throw line in the second
half.
Lake Placid was in action
Monday against county rival
Avon Park at home before
hosting Martin County
Friday.


Lady Devils come up

short at Okeechobee


News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE
Beonca Godfrey and the Lady Red Devils almost picked
up a game on the road, but fell just short in Monday
night's 47-46 loss at Okeechobee. Godfrey and Jamee
Hawthorne lead the scoring with 13 points apiece. "We
didn't play as well as we could have, especially defensive-
ly," head coach Paulette Daley said. "But I look forward
to seeing them again at the LaBelle Tournament." That
tournament will be around the Christmas holiday. Prior
to that, Avon Park will enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday
before taking on Fort Meade, Braden River and Hardee
Monday, Tuesday and Friday of'next week.

Avierre Conner takes it to the rim for two of his 13 points
Monday night at Lake Placid. Conner would hit two key free
throws late to stave off a Green Dragon comeback in the 49-
41 Red Devil win. Right: Andre Wilson squares up and fires
a jumper for two of his 10 points for Lake Placid.


Continued from 1C
level, but I do know that
playing a sport in college
involves a lot of time com-
mitment.
Sure, I was playing
Division III college baseball,
serving as.backup middle
infielder and the pinch hitter
most likely to draw a walk.
But even that made it a
chore to keep up with a
basic, core curriculum class
schedule.
I believe I was able to
maintain a low B average,
and a decent on-base percent-
age.
But Rolle was enrolled in
pre-med courses, on top of
being a starting defensive
back for the Seminoles.
Thinking of what my D-III
baseball schedule was like, I
can only imagine a D-I foot-
ball program, with high
expectations, must be like.
- Ant not only was Rolle-
able to balance it out, he
thrived on both fronts.
So much so that he main-
tained a 3.75 grade-point
average in those pre-med
courses and completed his
undergrad course load in 2.5
years.
That's right.

dents, who's only focus is

Robertson paced the Devils
with 21 points with Conner
backing him up with 13..
First-year head coach of the
Dragons, David Veley, was
pleased with his squad's
effort despite the final result.
"We started three sopho-
mores and a freshman," he
said of Flemming, Veley,
Wilson and Deondre
Chisholm, respectively. "And
with some of our football
players having only about
eight hours of practice time so
far, I can't be disappointed.
"We played hard and kept
our heads up," he continued.
"We're in a tough part of the
schedule, but we'vb been
telling them that between now
and Christmas is the time to
prepare for the district sched-
ule. These are coachable kids
and I think we can compete in
district."
Veley led the Dragons with
11, followed by Wilson with
10 and Sholtz with nine.
The Dragons are off until
after the holiday when they
host Martin County Friday.


toward a professional career.
But one needs to have the
grades to make,it to most
Division I programs.
And upon getting to one,
losing sight of the academics
is a quick way to jeopardize,
the opportunity.
Children in their teens
don't necessarily know what
they want to do with their
lives, and often times school
,.is seen as the necessary evil
to just get done with before
they can go out into, the real
world.
I went through two majors
before finishing up with my
Journalism degree.
Rolle is a rare one, know-
ing he wanted to-go into .
Medicine at an early age, and
having the fortitude and self
discipline to get where he
wanted.
I got where I wanted, after
it took some discovery.
But I wouldn't have had
that chance without being in
the college setting.
It allowed me to see What

gist, and now a sportswriter.
College might not be for
everyone but nobody can
know that if they don't give
it a try, or afford themselves
the opportunity to try.
You're a great athlete in
.high school who wants to see
how far you'can go with your
sport?
Better make sure you get
your grades up:
You're a parent who wants
to maximize your child's
potefitial?
Give them the opportunity
to play, but also lay down the
parameters to put them in the
right direction academically.
Odds are overwhelmingly
against making the pros, so
wanting to be the next
LaDainen Tomlinson is nice,
but not likely.
Aspiring to be the next
Myron Rolle may be even a
bit more far-fetched.
But even if you come up
short of reaching Rolle's "
lofty heights, by striving for
that, so much more is possi-
ble.

their academics, taking five
years to complete a bache-
lor's degree program, this
big-time college student-ath-
lete has himself set up for
medical school in half that
time.
We've all heard the story
about how the Seminoles had
a potentially crucial game
against Maryland the day .that
Rolle had to go for his final,,
interview in hopes of attain-,,
ing the scholarship which
earns him two to three years
education at Oxford.
And how Bobby Bowden
said it was a no brainer to
have him miss some of the
game, and how the NCAA
helped in getting him flown
from Alabama up to
Maryland for the game.
Of course Bowden and the
NCAA were going to do all
they good, say the right
things if only because it
was the right thing to do in
honoring this remarkable
achievement.
What it also does is show
where academics can take
you.
Sure, some high school
athletes may only'think of
going as far as they can in
sports seeing college as just
their next step athletically
