Plane 'just

disintegrated

in midair'
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - Two men died
Saturday afternoon when the small,
single-engine plane they were in
broke apart in the air and crashed at
Golf Hammock Country Club.
"The engine was making a sputter-
ing sound," Golf Hammock resident
Mark McLean said. "Some small parts
came off first, then the wing came off
and the tail shot off. It just disinte-
grated in midair."
The two-seater plane took off from
the Avon Park airport some time
Saturday) morning, said Lt. Jess Purvis
of the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office.
Pilot James Weener, 70, Sebring,
and p.-tien.'cer James Richer, 46,.a res-
ident of Golf Hammock, were identi-
fled as the ,.'.o Licum-., said Lt. Tim
Lethbridge of the HCSO said.
Some reports said the plane was
based in Avon Park, but officials are
unsure who the owner was. It was not
Weener or Richer, Lethbridge said.
Weener was a resident of the Sudan
Interior Mission, and according to his
wife, had 50 years of flying experi-
ence, Lethbridge said.
"Richer volunteers to help at the
retirement village and was being
taken on a pleasure airplane ride as a
thank you," Lethbridge said.
Purvis said the plane was seen
"orbiting (Golf Hammock) when it
came down."
The crash occurred just after 11:30
a.m., and drew a crowd from the Golf

expected about 400 kids to attend the event and said that people began lining up at 8
a,m. for Santa's 10 a.m. arrival. Each youngster received a bag full of goodies including
books, crayons, toys and candy. The event relies entirely on donations from the communi-
ty and 'money has been very tight,' explained event organizer Sharion Hudson who start-

Concerns continue over

CRA public hearings


By ED BALDRIDGE
cted./ ldd.tidglISe t''', Siwi li.Col r I
AVON PARK - Concerns
over proper procedure almost
ground the A% on Park
Southside Community
Redevelopment Agenc 's
(CRA) Ad\isory Board to a
halt on Thursda
night.
"We need to make
sure we do this right.
the amendments we
made to the original
plan were not handled
right. They had to be
publicized and a hear- Sch
ing held, or they were
made invalid," said Doug
Bernard during the first few
minutes of the meeting.
"There are some procedur-
al issues, and I am not sure
we had the authority to
decide anything tonight,"
said Bernard after- the meet-
ing.
The confusion stems from
the fact that the main CRA


Board. w which is made up of
members of the city council,
has not held public hearings
before adopting plan modifi-
cations and changes as per
Florida Statute 163.361 (2).
"If we -have made some
mistakes, maybe we should
%wait before proceed-
ing an> further."
Bernard suggested. "I
just want to make sure
\we are doing things
right."
But Malor Sharon
ir Schuler told the advi-
sory board members
they should proceed with
their agenda.
"NIMy recommendation, and
it would be the city's recom-

Council to

choose new

Airport

Authority

member

Jackson, Taylor
being considered
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - City council
members will be appointing a
new member to the airport
authority at the regular coun-
cil meeting Tuesday evening.
They have to chose
between two veteran activists
- former county commis-
sioner Andrew Jackson and
former authority director
Haywood Taylor.
The appointment is neces-
sary because of the vacancy
created when member John
Clark stepped down from the
authority upon his appoint-
ment to the city council.
Clark was asked to take the
city council seat vacated by
Dan Andrews, who was sus-
pended from that position
Nov. 27 by Gov. Charlie Crist
after he was indicted on
felony charges stemming
from his tenure as executive
director of the Greater
Sebring Chamber of
Commerce.
Clark will serve as the
council's liaison to the
authority.
"I was a previous member
and have always been inter-
ested in * the airport,"
Haywood, who was asked to
apply, said Friday. "Mike
Willingham (the director) is
always there, finding every
possible way to get grants and
maintain its improvement.
Property development should
continue. With everyone
working together it is a
tremendous asset to the com-
munity.",.
. Jackson was approached to
appl% for a seat on the author-
ity as well.
"I'd be happy to serve, I'm
a great supporter of the air-
port," he said. "Although of
course Haywood is a kind of
living legend" (he road lead-
ing from U.S. 98 to the airport
is named Haywood Taylor
Boulevard).
"Mike Willingham is doing
a great job," Jackson said.
The airport is important to
Highlands County as an eco-
nomic engine. It has a good
mix. with the airport aspect
and industrial and should con-
tinue to expand."
Each councilman will have
one vote.

Local author wins literary award


Special to the News-Sun
Local author Sunny Serefino's novel "A
Grandma for Christmas" won a first place
2008 Royal Palm Library Literary Award
from the Florida Writers Association.
This is the third literary award for
Serefino, who is known for her stories about
courageous women, and the second from the
Florida Writer's Association.
"A Grandma for Christmas" is an inspiring
novel about a woman who has longed for a
child but remained unmarried for too many
years.
Breaking her long relationship with the
man she thought would be the answer to her
prayers, she needs to get away.


What she doesn't need is the blizzard com-
ing at her as she drives through the moun-
tains of Pennsylvania.
What she doesn't expect is her life will
change the moment she encounters a fright-
ened little girl who has been abandoned.
"A Grandma for Christmas" tells of the
blessings that happen along when we least
expect them.
A much sought-after speaker, Serefino fre-
quently addresses Florida women's associa-
tion, civic and church groups on the topics
she writes about.

Sportsmen's Assoc.

seeks help for 27th

kids' shopping spree


By SCOTT DRESSEL
scott.dressel@newssun.com
SEBRING - Robert
Saffold figures the Florida
Sportsmen's Association is
into its third generation
when it comes to the annual
holiday shopping spree for
underprivileged kids. Some
of the kids that will be
helped this year live with
grandparents who took part
years ago.
For 26 years, Saffold's
organization has collected
money to give local at-risk
kids ages 7-17 a chance to
buy some necessities - not
toys, but things like under-
wear, socks, shoes and
toothbrushes - on Dec. 23.
"The first year, we gave
the kids $15 each and took
them to the Kmart down-
town," Saffold said. "That
shows you how long ago it
was."
These days, the Kmart -
which usually helps out by
giving the kids a 10 percent
discount and not charging
sales tax - is at the
Lakeshore Mall and Saffold
is hoping to give $60 to
more than 100 children, up
from the $50 handed out to
83 participants last year.
The kids that take part in
the shopping spree are from
families affected by unem-
ployment, or single-parent
families having to rely on
government assistance, or
are living with their grand-
parents because their par-
ents are addicted to drugs or
in prison.
The families are


screened, Saffold said, to
make sure they are truly in
need and aren't taking
advantage of the system.
But with the slumping
economy, donations have
been slow to come in this
year, Saffold said, so he's
sending out a plea for help.
"People have supported
us for years, and I'm very
appreciative," he said.
"We just want to let the
kids know somebody's here
to support them."
While the shopping spree
is reserved for buying day-
to-day living needs, the
Sportsmen's Association
knows that it's not
Christmas without some
toys, too. Those will be
handed out during a com-
munity event on Lemon
Street on Christmas Eve.
Donations can be made to
either the shopping spree or
the toy giveaway. For the
shopping spree,' Saffold is
looking for people willing
to sponsor one or more kids
at $60 each, or just to sim-
ply make a donation.
He's also hoping to get
some new or slightly used
unwrapped toys such as
teddy bears, bikes or tricy-
cles.
Checks can be made
payable to the Florida
Sportsmen's Association
and mailed to Saffold at 608
Bowman Ave., Sebring,
Fla., 33870. You can call
Saffold at 381-5166 for
more information or to
arrange a donation.

SEBRING - Come Jan.
1, the Highlands County
Clerk of Courts will no
longer have its Senior
Director of Business
Services, Bob Jamison.
Jamison will retire Dec.
31, a decision he made over
a year ago. But he almost
changed his mind last week.
The town of Dundee, an
hour north of Sebring,
named him one of the top
nine candidates for the town
manager position, which
carries a $75,000 salary.


"Friends convinced me to
go ahead and apply,"
Jamison said. "I gave the
opportunity due considera-
tion and decided not to
peruse it at this time."
His resume was whittled
down from the original 36
applicants and submitted to
the Dundee town council
during a special meeting
Dec. 9.
Thursday night, Jamison
deiced to pull his' name
from the running.

SEBRING - Tuesday night
at the regular city council
meeting, the Stephenson-
Nelson Funeral Home and
Crematory will ask for a vari-
ance from the city's cemetery
ordinance. Currently only two
sets of remains may placed be
in any one vault.
A vault is a weatherproof
barrier buried in the ground.
The variance requested is a
limited, special-needs situa-
tion. The funeral home has
been storing on its premises
about 44 sets of cremated
remains that have never been
claimed by the families.
"It blows our minds (that
remains would be abandoned),
but there are a variety of rea-
sons and if everyone was the
same it would be a boring
world," said Darin MacNeill,
funeral director.
In fact, he pointed out that
the law allows funeral homes
to dispose of unclaimed
remains however they see fit.
"But we just can't do that,"
MacNeill said. "It's an ethical
issue with us."
Instead, because the busi-
ness owns a plot in the
Pinecrest Cemetery and has a
vault available, the funeral
home wants permission to


'It's an ethical
issue with us.'

DARIN MacNIELL
funeral director
intern all the remains - which
are in separate containers -
in that one place.
"Being in the vault in the
cemetery not only protects
them," MacNeill said, "but
also gives them a dignified
place of rest. If a family mem-
ber ever wanted to recover
them it would be possible."


Both the funeral home and
the city will have a list of,
whose remains are in the vault
and the funeral home would
pay the city for the marking of
the grave to remove the cre-
mains if that became neces-
sary.
If the council decides to
amend its cemetery ordinance
to allow this, the amendment
will have to make clear it per-
tains only to licensed funeral
homes and cremains which
have basically been aban-.
doned.

Put on

your game

face and

check your

401(k)

On the recent baleful morn
the National Bureau of
Economic Research declared
we're officially in a reces-
sion, I realized I couldn't put
it off any longer.
It was time to check the
balance on my 401(k).
I'd avoided this moment
of truth for months, ever
since the stock market took
its first bungee jump into the
abyss. I was overdue for a
peek down there, to see what
peeked back.
Later that evening, as I
shuffled with dread toward
my computer, I took a deep
breath to try to calm my
nerves. Unfortunately, this
proved difficult, as my head
was almost completely
encased in bubble wrap.
In the retelling, I can see
my preparations may seem
excessive to you, perhaps
odd. But, given the grim task
ahead, I felt I had to take
precautions.
There was, for instance, a
distinct possibility that the
sheer horror of what I was
about to see would cause me
to lose consciousness and
send my oversized noggin
kerplopping against my desk.
So protective headgear -
particularly something that
would emit a pop-pop-pop in
an emergency - seemed pru-
dent. One certainly doesn't
want a concussion on top of
a recession.
As I hurriedly poked big-
-ger air holes around my
mouth and nose - and wider
eye holes, while I was at it -
I realized that mobility also
would be an issue.
I'd put on several layers of
clothing - again, to cushion
myself against a fall - but as
I lifted my hands to the key-
board, I immediately regret-
ted my decision to top it off
with a bulky parka. Typing
was going to be a real chore.
I don't know why I was so
jittery, really. My family and
I had already been through
the drill several times. Well,
I had, anyway. My wife and
10-year-old daughter had
declared the entire exercise
"goofy" and refused to par-
ticipate in any of my dozen
or so trial runs.
But our cat, still fairly
new to the household,
seemed mildly interested in
my endeavors. If I were to
keel over, I was reasonably
certain he would meander
across my chest sooner or
later and awaken me - pro-
vided, of course, that his
claws could cut through the
parka.
Clumsily, my hands trem-
bling, I began typing the
address for the Web site I
loathed - the cyber home of
the investment firm manag-
ing my 401(k).
I feared not only what I
might see but what I might
do.
Long ago, I had divided
my retirement savings into
the recommended mix of
stocks, bonds and canned
goods. As the market began
to implode, I knew it would
be foolish to shift my money
around to try to dodge loss-
es. If I did, I'd end up living
out my golden years in an
uber-grumpy version of "Hi,


welcome to Walmart!"
As my PC crunched and
whirred, my investment'
firm's Web site slowly began
to take shape on the screen.
After a dozen or so tries, I
managed to remember my
user name and my password,
and I was logged in.
I braced myself for huge
losses in my S&P 437 1/2
Fund, my Once-Emerging

TWe want to publicly thank State Senator Mike
Fasano and Representative Peter Nehr for
their concern over Progress Energy's plans to
raise rates with the start of the new year.


Progress Energy has said the rate
increase, which could be as much as 25
percent, is needed as an "advance cost
recovery" for the two nuclear plants it
is planning on building in Levy County
in the northwest central part of the
state. The exact location is about 10
miles north of Crystal River.
Our concern is not focused on the use
of nuclear power, rather on how
Progress Energy plans to pay for the
costs, which, according to several
reports, are said to be escalating.
Last March, for example, the compa-
ny had to triple its first estimate to $17
billion because it had not included the
price of land, financing, fees, labor or
fuel and because the prices for concrete
and steel also increased. The company
also added in the cost of a $2-3 billion
transmission project.
But that transmission project does not


guarantee Highlands County will bene-
fit from any additional capacity. The
additional electricity may be used else-
where.
In any event the go-online date
stretches out at least a decade, if it ever
happens.
Given the precarious condition of the
Florida economy, the relatively high
unemployment rate, and the large por-
tion of county residents who have to
make do on a fixed income, we feel it is
unfair, and unwise, to burden con-
sumers with the majority of the cost,
especially with so many unknowns
unsettled.
As Fasano and Nehr wrote to Jeffrey
Lyash, Progress Energy's president and
chief executive officer., on Dec. 5: "We
believe that being a private corporation
it is inherently unfair of you to ask your
customers, our constituents, to front the


costs of a project that is not even guar-
anteed to be completed. This should be
the responsibility of your shareholders
and other possible investment partners.
We would like you to further investi-
gate the possibility of issuing corporate
bonds to finance the majority of these
projects and let investors take the risks
and also then the profits from the gains
when they occur." .
We strongly recommend getting in
touch with the members of the
Highlands County legislative delega-
tion sc they too may become part of a
reasonable solution
State Senator J. D. Alexander may be

TODAY'S LETTERS


Are medications a
roulette game?
Editor:
I was dead for three days
and three nights. A heart
machine kept my blood
moving. This and much
more happened to me
because the Merck execu-
tives named as criminal con-
spirators in my RICO law-
suit knowingly and willingly
produced and marketed a
toxic pill. They then ignored
all manner of evidence that
the public was being dam-
aged and killed including the
FDA's request for a warning
label stating the pill's inher-
ent danger of heart attacks
and strokes. The FDA also
requested Merck send a
warning letter to every doc-
tor prescribing Vioxx. They
never did. Lawsuits were
brought against Merck's
Vioxx as early as 1999. Why
was Merck allowed to con-
tinue their criminal acts in a
practice and pattern begun
with other products from the
early '90s? I refer to the
excessive preservative
mercy in the multi-dose chil-
dren's vaccine ampoules.
This too is now in litigation.
Why did five years and
88,000 deaths, each proven
by autopsy to be Vioxx-
related and another docu-
mented 140,000 people
claiming grievous harm go
by before Vioxx was
recalled in 2004? Answer:
There is no law against
producing and marketing a
defective prescription drug.
I will go forward with
every fiber of my damaged
being to make the public
aware that the protection the
public is constitutionally
guaranteed is not in place.
The United States Supreme
Court may rule and set a
precedent or demand
Congress write a law to
make the drug companies
and their principals be liable
in court when they put prof-
its ahead of public safety.


My RICO case is before
the United States Supreme
Court now. If enough atten-
tion is paid this vital issue,
we will not be left to wonder
with every prescribed med-
ication we take if we are
playing roulette with our
well being, gambling our
individual futures to make
wealth for the currently
unaccountable drug empire.
For more information, call
me at 465-1200.

What will it take to
fix Social Security?
Editor:
Without drastic Campaign
Reform, our government
will continue to have very
real problems. When one is
elected, he/she has mostly
been bought with all the
elaborate donations. These
donations don't often come
without obligations. Elected
candidates should focus on
upholding our laws and
working together to make
the country a better place to
live and prosper with equal
opportunity for. all.
I have recently observed
on TV where promises are
being made to get income
taxes owed greatly reduced.
I was under the impression
that one who didn't pay his
taxes went to jail.
There is much discussion
about Social Security. That
is a program that should
stand alone, protected for
what it was intended and
should be given only to
those who have paid into the
program. It should not be in
any way considered welfare
or charity and if there is a
surplus one year, it should
remain in the fund for a lean
year. ...
These provisions made for
all these teenagers who are
having these illegitimate
babies, many of whom make
it a way of life and brag
about the check they get


from the government has to
be quite an expense. It's as
though we are encouraging
them. I don't think this is a
justifiable act and certainly
not fair to those who are try-
ing to keep their priorities in
order.
If our legal system is
enforced justly, I think we
will have less expense there.
I think there are many
expenses that should be
deleted before we give any
thought to cutting Social
Security and Medicare for
those who qualify. The age
limit is not something that
needs changing. When one
reaches 65 and has worked
all his life trying to prepare,
he doesn't need to be forced
to work to survive to have a
decent life. Of course, we all
know Social Security was
never intended to be our
only provision, but we
should be able to depend on
what we have prepared for.
I do think Medicare needs
reform. When you go to the
doctor sick, it's difficult to
see him, because there are
so many there who need to
take an aspirin instead ...
I'm sure, we do have fraud
also. Services are barely
affordable. It should defi-
nitely be illegal for
Congress or anyone else to
use Social Security funds for
anything other than Social
Security benefits. I don't
remember Congress asking
my permission to use our
Social Security for other
things. This is not right and
should not be allowed.
I don't believe nursing
home cost should be totally
government expense. Too
many people are putting
them there because they
don't want the responsibility
of caring for them. I know
this is not always the case,
but often, it is. This has to
be a huge expense. Without
some official restraints,
these things will continue.
Such things as weight
loss and maybe other things,

LP cheerleader earns trip to

England for New Year's parade- E


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
donald.ridgeway@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID - Having a
passion for doing things is
something that each any
every person has. For Lake
Placid High School student
Kristina Grill her passion is
cheerleading. Because of her
passion, Grill has earned a
once-in-a-lifetime chance to
tour Europe with an all-star
cheer group.
The Lake Placid junior was
selected by the Universal
Cheerleader's Association to
be a part of an all-star squad
that will travel to London,
England to perform in the
22nd annual New Year's Day
parade.
"While at a cheer camp this
summer I tried out for the all-
star team and won a shot to be
a part of the team," Grill said.
"I am one of around 2,000
girls that tried out. It is a big


honor to me."
Grill and her other cheer-
mates will be leaving the day
after Christmas and will be in
England for over a week.
Grill is not well traveled as
her furthest trip that she can
remember took her just past
the border of Florida and into
southern Georgia.
"I haven't really traveled
outside of Florida," Grill said.
"When I was a little girl I
went to Alabama but other
than that we went to south
Georgia last summer."
In addition, it is also her
first time on an airplane.
"Flying scares me a little
bit. I have never done it
before," Grill said.
To prepare for the upcom-
ing trip, Grill has been prac-
ticing a video recording of the
routine that will be done in
London. Once arriving in
London, Grill along with the


other participants will prac-
tice one last time together.
The parade is a big event in
London with more than
10,000 performers coming
from 20 different countries. It
is expected that nearly half a
million people will pack the
London streets with more
than 200 million watching on
television. Along with the
live audience, there are more
than 500 television stations
stretching over five conti-
nents that will receive live
pictures of the event.
The historic New Year's
Day Parade will begin in
Parliament Square as Big Ben
strikes high noon. The route
will continue along its two-
mile path through the historic
streets of London and will
end at Berkeley Street.
During the week, trip plan-
ners have put together a
week's itinerary full of sight-

seeing. Some of the sights
include Big Ben,
Buckingham Palace, The
Tower of London, the
Windsor Castle, and
Westminster Abbey.
"I am really looking for-
ward to cheering over there,"
Grill said. "It is going to be so
amazing to see everything
and be a part of it all. It is
going to be a great experience
for me and I just can't wait
for it to get here."

32 classes of Driver
Safety offered
Editor:
On behalf of the AARP
Driver Safety Program
instructors in the Sebring and
Lake Placid areas, I thank


you and the staff of the
News-Sun for assisting us in
advertising our classes in
2008.
During this period of eco-
nomic downturn, when the
cost of publication has
increased and every space is
costly, your paper absorbed
that cost on numerous occa-
sions to assist us. As a result
of this civic generosity you
helped us provide 32 Driver
Safety Classes to a total of
535 participants this year.
There is no doubt that roads
in this area have been made
safer and possibly lives


saved, through your efforts
on our behalf and we give
you our profound thanks for
a job well done. It is our sin-
cere hope that we may con-
tinue working for the better-
ment of our community and
the safety of our citizens in
the coming year.
To you and all at the
News-Sun, may you have a
Merry Christmas and a
Happy New Year and may
God bless and smile on each
of you.
Jim McQuigg

tion, they can't do much. The
only way they can tell if
someone is squatting is if the
owner of the property - or
the neighbors - report them.
Well, if the bank owns the
property, it may not know if
there's someone at the house
or not. And so far, the neigh-
bors in these areas are for the
most part keeping quiet.
This is nothing new for
Take Back the Land.
Apparently they've been at
this for over a year. A Web
site I looked at while
researching this claims what
the group is doing for the
homeless is the true bailout.
One of those benefiting
from their methods, a woman
with four children, admits
she lives in fear of arrest.
But she's driven by despera-
tion, she says. A roof over
her head and a home for her
children are worth the risks.
It would be simple for me
to take the easy way out and
praise Take Back the Land
for their intentions and desire
to help out the homeless
among us. After all, who
isn't for helping out those
who are less fortunate?
That's something we should
all try to do to the best of our
ability.
But there's this whole
breaking the law thing.
Stealing, if you don't mind
my saying so. Take Back the
Land isn't giving out of their
own means to help others -
they're pretty much taking
from others and giving away
what is not theirs to give.
The aims are noble, to be
sure. And if they could work
out agreements with the own-
ers, then everybody wins.
But what will happen when

A large crowd gathers Saturday after a small plane crashed on the golf course at Golf Hammock in Sebring. Wreckage from the crash was spread through-
out the neighborhood.

Plane crash leaves 2 dead B: ..


Continued from page 1A
Early reports said that one of the
men was seen ejecting from the plane
before it crashed.
Some eyewitnesses to the crash
,were on the golf course when it hap-
pened.
"We heard the engine revving back
and forth then the whole plane came
apart in" the air," said Blair Wadick,
who was playing golf with local resi-
dent Dale Conrod.
"It was literally in pieces in the
air," Conrod said.
The men were on hole No. 3 when
'they heard the plane and saw it
hurtling towards the earth.
Curtis Donovan had a closer look
from his rooftop while hanging
Christmas decorations.
"It looked like he got going too
'fast," he said.
Donovan said he didn't think he
saw a parachute, but if he did, it did-
n't open.
"We could see (one of the men)
swinging his arms," he said. "I saw


something dragging behind him, but
it never opened."
The Aeromed helicopter was called
to the scene to help try to locate the
pilot and determine the size of the
debris field, and the Federal Aviation
Administration and National
Transportation and Safety Board
have been notified.
The FAA and HCSO are partnering
with the investigation.
"The actual investigation as to
what happened when it was in the air
will be more of FAA's side of the
investigation," Lethbridge said.
"Our focus will be what happened
to the people."
This is the second fatal plane crash
in Highlands County this year.
On June 20, local citrus grower and
Lake Placid native Mason Smoak and
David Maehr, a scientist from the
University of Kentucky in the area
studying black bears, died when their
plane crashed at the Placid Lakes air-
port.

SPD offers

tips for

store owners
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - A robbery
was followed by gunfire earli-
er this week when a store
owner shot somewhere
between five and nine rounds
at the fleeing thief.
Commander Steve Carr of
the Sebring Police
Department said there are a
few different ways for store
owners to deter would be
criminals from holding up
their convenience stores to
prevent a repeat of the Dec. 9
robbery at L and M Food Store
at 1411 Roseland Ave. in the
Highlands Homes Park neigh-
borhood.
"A lit parking lot, security
cameras inside and outside the
store and more than one clerk
on duty at all times are the
basic things," he said.
In the L and M robbery it
didn't matter to the thief that
customers, who later turned
into witnesses, were inside
and around the store.
The suspect was described
as 6-feet tall, wearing a dark
blue long sleeve shirt with a
hood and dark colored jeans,
had his face covered by a
mask, the incident report from
the SPD said. Witnesses
described him as a black male
with a "slightly deep voice,"
the report said.
He ran off with an undis-
closed amount of cash while
the owner of the store shot at
him.
Another way to keep stores
safe is to control the amount
of money available to would-
be thieves.
Don't keep enough money
in the register to show "it's
worth hitting the place," Carr
said.
"Don't keep a lot of money
in the till ... have a locking
safe on a timer," he said.
"Posting that information out-
side is obviously helpful."
Anyone with information is
asked to contact the SPD at
471-5107 or Crimestoppers at
1-800-226-TIPS.

Comfort Keepers offers five tips to keep aging

relatives merry during the holiday festivities


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - For many families,
the holiday season marks one of the
only times of year that all members
can gather together to celebrate and
enjoy each other's company. The por-
trait before and after this joyous time,
however, is often far less picturesque
for seniors living alone or far away
from relatives.
S- As the aging population continues
to grow - the U.S. Census Bureau


projects over 88 million people age
65 and older in the U.S. by 2050 -
memory loss and dementia in seniors
are posing a major public health bur-
den and it's often difficult for rela-
tives to monitor that aging family
members are getting the level of
stimulation and socialization they
want and need. But there's hope:
According to a recent study by the
Harvard School of Public Health,
researchers have found evidence that


seniors in the United States with
active social lives may have slower
rates of memory decline and lower
mortality rates.
Given these findings the local
owners of Comfort Keepers, a fran-
chised, in-home care services
provider in Sebring, have provided
the following tips for family mem-
bers to address with their aging rela-
tives this holiday season to ensure a
happy and healthy time is had by all.


1. Link Up with Like Minds:
Senior groups plan activities like
exercise, meals, games and trips for
seniors wanting to get out of the
house and expand their circle of
friends. Look into these groups -% ith
your relative and find one that best
fits their interests.
2. Pick Up a Pen: Sending holiday
cards is a wonderful way to spark a

Holiday tips for

new kind of relationship between family mem-
bers. Once these lines of communication have
been opened, seniors will be more inclined to
keep up with the correspondence long after the
holiday season ends.
3. Get in the Game: Brainteasers, memory
games and mathematical puzzles are not only
fun but can employ areas of the brain that
aren't regularly stimulated. Try a few with
your relative while you are in town and leave
them with a few books or games that they can
continue using after you leave.
4. Make a List and Check it Twice: Send
*your relative a list of:possible gift ideas for
- other family members and review their pur-


aging relatives
chases upon your arrival while helping them
with wrapping. If you have the luxury of arriv-
ing prior to the holiday, accompany your rela-
tive on a shopping excursion to select the per-
fect presents.
5. Hire a Helping Hand: If you are still con-
cerned your relative is in jeopardy of mentally
"checking out" when the holiday season
comes to a close, discuss the possibility of hir-
ing an in-home companion. Not only will this
person be able to help with basic chores and
activities but the companion will be able to
provide much-needed social interaction for
your loved one on a daily, weekly or live-in
basis.

Florida Association of Mortgage Brokers offers tips for first-time hoftmebuyers


TALLAHASSEE - In spite
of what consumers are hear-
ing in the news, now is actual-
ly a great time to buy a home,
especially for first time home
buyers. If you are in the mar-
ket to purchase your first
home, there are many mort-
gage products still out there
that can fit your individual
financial needs. First time
home buyers can put down as
little as 3 percent down
towards the purchase of their
home.
For renters who are hoping
to become homeowners, there
are various programs that they
may take advantage of, such
as, programs where closing
costs assistance and specific
tax credits that they may be
eligible for. Renters can also
benefit from purchasing a
home at this time as they
don't have to wait to sell a
property.
Deciding to purchase a
home is one of the most sig-
nificant decisions that a con-
sumer will ever make. It is
crucial that the professionals
working with consumers dur-
ing the home buying process
treats each individual in an
appropriate manner. While
most mortgage industry pro-
fessionals are honest and ethi-
cal, it is still important for
consumers to be educated as
they prepare to enter one of
largest financial transaction
of their lives. Homeowners
should be knowledgeable
about the mortgage process so


State Lic # RC -0066817


they can protect their finan-
cial interests and get the best
loan for their needs.
The Florida Association of
Mortgage Brokers (FAMB)
offers the following tips to
first time home buyers:
* Know that you are ready
to buy. Accept responsibility
for the monthly mortgage
payment, utilities, and other
bills that are incurred when
owning a home. Make a
budget of your finances and
be sure that you will have
enough money each month to
pay bills, buy groceries, put
gas in the car, pay for day
care/school activities, put
money into savings as well as
have money to have fun with
and purchase other necessities
such as clothes.
* Get your credit in order.
Reduce or eliminate all credit
card balances to below 30
percent of the available credit
limit on the card. Pay off out-
standing bills and do not con-
solidate credit card accounts
to one or two cards and/or
close out other accounts.
Review your credit report
with a mortgage broker at
least 90-days prior to apply-
ing for a mortgage and report
inaccuracies to the credit
bureaus.
* Shop around and com-
pare. If you need to borrow
money for a home purchase,
refinance, home repairs, med-
ical expenses or bill consoli-
dation, shop around between a
mortgage broker and your


FULLY LICENSED & INSURED

385-4690


bank. Your local bank will be
able to offer you their current
programs while a mortgage
broker will be able to shop
among a variety of lenders
finding the best loan for your
individual financial needs.
Compare interest rates and
annual percentage rates
(APR) and find out what the
total costs of the loan will be
and your monthly payment
before making a decision. Use
the Good Faith Estimate and
truth in lending statement
from each application to com-
pare the loan terms and costs.
* Negotiate. Don't let the
promise of extra cash or lower
monthly payments get in the
way of your good judgment.
Analyze whether the cost you
will pay for the loan is really
worth it. Don't agree to a
loan that includes extra prod-
ucts you don't want.
Negotiate the loan terms and
agree to a loan amount only
for what you need.
* Be cautious. Be wary of
anyone who calls you on the
phone, solicits you in the mail
or comes to your door offer-
ing "bargain loans". Beware
of claims that the offer is only
available for a short period of
time. Beware of lenders
claiming 'bad credit - no
problem'. If the loan seems
too good to be true, it proba-
bly is.
* Never act immediately.
Beware of lenders who ask for
upfront fees allegedly to
cover a first loan payment.


Never pay a lender cash for
any fees, and always make the
check payable to the lender,
not the individual loan officer.
If you are working with a
mortgage broker, make sure
the broker is bonded to collect
upfront fees, before paying
them for services.
+ Understand the terms of
your loan. Some loans may
sound very attractive because
the monthly payment is small.
Ask about balloon payments
at the end of the loan period.
Make sure you know the dol-
lar amount of each monthly
payment and ask if the month-
ly payment can change at any-
time during the repayment
process. If so, find out when it
will change and by how much.
* Don't be afraid to ask
questions. You have a legal
right to know the total cost of
the loan, the interest rate, the
annual percentage rate (APR),
the monthly payments, and
how long you have to pay
back the loan. If you are
unsure of any terms of the
loan, ask. If you don't get a
straight answer, go elsewhere


for your financing needs.
+ Read carefully before
you sign. Don't sign any doc-
ument you haven't read or has
blank spaces to be filled in
after you sign. Don't be pres-
sured into signing any loan
papers that you do not under-
stand. If you need an explana-
tion of any terms or condi-
tions, talk to someone you
trust, such as a knowledgeable
family member or attorney.
Get copies of everything you
sign.
* Borrow only the amount
you need and can afford to
repay. Just because you quali-
fy for a certain amount of
money doesn't mean you can
afford to pay it back.
Determine exactly how much
money you need, borrow only
that amount, and find out
exactly how much you will
have to repay every month.
Make sure you will have
enough money left over to pay
your other bills.
* Immediately get help if

Representatives of Habitat For Humanity of Hardee County receive $20,000 grant check for
building renovation from Operation Round Up's Board of Directors.

Local organizations receive $35,000

from PRECO's charitable foundation


Special to the News-Sun
WAUCHULA - Operation Round Up, the
charitable arm of Peace River Electric
Cooperative (PRECO), recently approved
grants amounting to $35,000 for Habitat for
Humanity of Hardee, Wauchula, and
Operation Love Outreach, Fort Meade.
Hardee County's chapter of Habitat for
Humanity received $20,000, which will be
used to update and renovate a residence to
house out-of-town construction volunteers
who work on homes for qualifying individu-
als.
Operation Love Outreach, the recipient of
$15,000, will use its grant to offset various
building costs incurred by its program and
food costs to aid persons in need in Fort
Meade and surrounding areas.
Operation Round Up is a program made


possible by the generosity and compassion of
PRECO members. Funds are raised for local
worthy individuals and charitable organiza-
tions by "rounding up" members' monthly
energy bills to the next dollar. Charitable
grants are considered in the areas of food,
shelter, clothing, medical, education and the
environment.
Operation Round Up funds are available to
individuals and organizations residing in one
of the 10 counties that PRECO serves:
Brevard, DeSoto, Hardee, Highlands,
Hillsborough, Indian River, Manatee, Osceola,
Polk, and Sarasota. The Operation Round Up
Charitable Foundation's independent board of
directors, made up of nine PRECO members in
PRECO's service territory, makes manage-
ment decisions and oversees the disbursement
of monies to recipients.

Often the gift of kindness

B What is it about Christmas

Kindness takes shape when

appropriate gift for a particu-

in generosity to charities at
Christmastime so that those
less fortunate can receive a
gift.

righteous things we
had done, but
because of his
mercy."
We often attach
good deeds to
receiving a gift. But
our little sponsored
child didn't have to
do anything for our
hearts to be prompt-
ed to give him a gift.


The love that God
placed in our hearts did that.
And though the surprise
gift was wonderful for him to
receive, it will be more fan-
tastic when our prayers are
answered and he receives
Jesus' free gift of salvation.
Then he will have Christmas
in his heart every day of his
life.
The Bible teaches us that
God loved us while we were
still sinners and before we
ever loved him. Then to
prove it, he came to this
earth and took on human
form. That baby in the
manger grew up to be the
One who willingly sacrificed
himself on the cross for our
sins. He rose again so we
could live forever with him.
What an unexpected
response to rebellious, stub-
born mankind to have God
become one of us so that he
could rescue us and provide a
way to bring us back to him-
self. We don't need to find a
way to God. God has made
the way for us.
The way is Jesus - kind-
ness personified. Selah

Knowing how to control plant diseases is




crucial if you want to have a healthy garden


Plant diseases are an inevitable part
of any garden. Many potential disease
organisms live in all garden soil. Given
the right conditions for development
and susceptible plants, diseases can
quickly injure or destroy plants.
However, steps can be taken to limit the
severity of many plant disease out-
breaks.
Select plants adapted to the condi-
tions in your garden. Recognize that
many plants require different amounts
of light, moisture, and nutrients for best
growth. Plants requiring full sun will
not thrive in heavy shade. Plants adapt-
ed to drier environments will often rot
away in saturated soils. Plants that are
growing under stress from lack of light,
too much or too little moisture, or inad-
equate nutrition are more susceptible to
disease.
Select plants that are resistant to com-
mon plant diseases. Many plants, espe-
cially vegetables, have been bred for
their ability to withstand attack by com-
mon plant diseases. When choosing
varieties, select those that have a genet-
ic resistance to common diseases.
Provide plants with proper nutrients.
Plants that are adequately fertilized tend
to withstand attack from disease organ-
isms better than under or over nourished


plants. The use of
",[ compost will help
" :SA improve the soil struc-
S7 . , ture and provide
plants with needed
nutrients.
*. | For diseases to get
established, three
things are needed: 1) a
susceptible plant, 2)
News From the disease organism,
The and 3) the proper con-
Watershed editions of light, tem-
oie B s perature and humidity
Cori Brgss for the disease to
develop. The following are some pre-
cautions you can take to have healthy
plants.
Provide plants with adequate space.
Many disease organisms thrive under a
condition of high humidity. Proper spac-
ing of plants to allow for air circulation
will help reduce the severity of some
common garden disease organisms.
Use good sanitation. Diseased plants
and plant parts can spread disease to
healthy plants. Removing diseased
plants or dead foliage from the garden
helps limit the spread of the disease.
Control weeds and insect pests.
Weeds crowd plants and compete with
them for nutrients, moisture, and light.


Some insects are responsible for spread-
ing plant diseases as they move from
plant to plant. Many viral diseases are
spread by sucking insects such as
aphids.
Recognize that not every disease
needs to be controlled. Some diseases,
while unattractive, are not particularly
damaging to the plant. Some plant dis-
orders are caused by lack of plant nutri-
ents. A soil test may help determine if
pH (the acidity of the soil) and soil
nutrients are adequate. Before using any
chemical controls, be sure you have cor-
rectly identified the problem. Many
plant diseases cannot be controlled with
chemicals. Misuse of chemical controls
can be damaging to the environment and
an unnecessary expense!

management, pest management, and

Gemini may need to tone explanations down


Aries (March 21-April 20) - Aries,
you have been setting aside your inter-
ests for too long. It's time to make your-
self a priority. Blow off responsibilities
for a while and have some fun.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) - You
would like nothing more, Taurus, than to
sleep in this week and not worry about
too much. Unfortunately that will not be
the case. Things will be busier than ever.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) - Gemini,
you tend to overwhelm people with the
amount of information you provide, even
for seemingly simple explanations. Tone
it down if you're getting blank stares.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) - This
week is a good time to be a homebody
and take care of some issues around the
house. A few changes in your surround-
ings can bring a new mood to the place.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) - Leo, it's easy
to go with the crowd, but generally the
crowd is uninteresting. You tend to
march to your own beat, and this week is
no different. Others will follow you.


HOROSCOPE


Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) - Virgo, cre-
ating a vision of what you want to
achieve is the first step toward achieving
it. With a plan in motion - even if on
paper - anything seems possible.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - This week
is the perfect time for socializing with
long lost friends. Your high energy and
engaging attitude will leave them want-
ing more, Libra.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Scorpio,
be wary of people who are pushing you
in directions you may not want to go -
even if one of them is your partner. You
have to make your own decisions.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -

Taylor named Artist of the Month

at Lake Placid Caladium Co-op


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID -Peggy Taylor is the
December Artist of the Month at the Caladium
Arts and Crafts Cooperative in Lake Placid.
She is also the current vice president.
Taylor's crafting began when she was an
elementary school teacher in Indiana and her
students had art once a week - only there was
no art teacher. An art teacher was born. After
teaching 34 years in Indiana and Florida,
Taylor retired and spends most of her time cro-
cheting and cross-stiching but also enjoys
sewing and candlewicking.
Her unique frames with expressions like
"Sisters Are Forever," "Glad We're


Neighbors," and "Home Sweet Home" done in
cross-stitch are throughout the store. Her
crafts include baskets and wreaths covered in
crocheted fabric, crocheted doilies and cro-
cheted angels and ornaments. Customers order
a name in filet crochet from her.
',Recently Taylor started making the red heel
sock monkey and the loveable Raggedy Ann
and Andy dolls.
Visit the Caladium Co-op, 132 E. Interlake
Blvd., to see Taylor's work or call the Co-op at
699-5940. Also visit the Web site at www.cal-
adiumarts.org. The Caladium Co-op has lay-
away and free gift wrapping.

SFCC Artist Series presents

the Golden Dragon Acrobats


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - The
South Florida Community
College Artist Series pres-
ents the world-renowned
Golden Dragon Acrobats, a
Chinese troupe of 16 per-
formers at 7:30 p.m.
Monday, Jan. 5 in the SFCC
Auditorium, Highlands
Campus. The show features
acrobats, jugglers, contor-
tionists and all-around dare-
devils who juggle everything
from umbrellas to soccer
balls and use props ranging
from ladders, chairs stacked
to the ceiling, and giant spin-
ning wheels.
Impresario Danny Chang
and choreographer Angela
Chang combine award-win-
ning acrobatics, traditional
dance, spectacular costumes,
ancient and contemporary
music, and theatrical tech-
niques to present a show of
breathtaking skill and spell-
binding beauty. Whether
bending their bodies into
seemingly impossible posi-
tions or balancing each other
in feats of incredible
strength, the .performers
show just why they are
world-famous.
The reputation of the com-
pany is solidly rooted in a
commitment to the highest
of production values and an
attention to artistic detail
that is unparalleled in the art
form. Their six-week
Broadway run in 2005 led to
standing ovations and two
prestigious New York Drama
Desk nominations.
The Golden Dragon
Acrobats have been touring
the United States for the past
30 years. They represent the
best of a time honored tradi-
tion that began more than 25
centuries ago. They have
traveled around the world to
all 50 states and to over 65
countries on five continents.

SEBRING - The Blue
Streaks of the wrestling mats
moved to 6-2 on the season
with a dual-match win over
visiting Lake Region Friday
night by a 39-24 score.
"We've started out real
well," first-year head coach
Josh Miller said before the
match. "We came in second in
the Land O'Lakes meet last
weekend and Dustin
Drummond was named
'Outstanding Wrestler' out of
more than 130 wrestlers."
The strong showing contin-
ued, despite the opening match
going to the Thunder over
Jeremy Quails at 125 pounds.
Drummond followed that
by taking a 4-2, overtime win,
before three straight pins


went to Sebring.
Freshman Mike Hutchinson
built a commanding 12-0 lead
in the 135-pound match
before securing a pin and
Mike Polatty was just as dom-
inating in getting a pin at 140-
pounds.
At 152 pounds, Alex
Kennedy fought for a pin
early on and took an 11-9 lead
into the third period.
His Lake Region opponent
tied it, but Kennedy pushed
the lead to 14-11 before final-
ly getting the pin with a mere
2.7 seconds left on the clock.
A couple of double forfeits
were included on the night, as
well as Sebring wins by for-
feit for Shane Liskey and
Brytton Williams.
,The two Lady Streak grap-


plers gave game efforts, but
both Ashley Potts (112) and
Nikki Golde (119) fell, as did
Jimmy Polatty (171).
But Evan Hunter won with
a pin to provide for the final
margin.
"We're pretty young but are
looking good," Miller said.
"We're missing a couple
weight classes, so we're
adjusting as we go. But we've
got a bunch of kids with either
one loss or undefeated."
So the fortunes are looking
good with definite potential
for growth.
The team headed south for
the Okeechobee Invite
Saturday before having a
week to get ready for the
Clewiston Invitational
Saturday, Dec. 20.

City of Champions adds another


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK - It is not a
secret that Avon Park is often
called the "City of
Champions", but what a lot of
local folks don't know is that
a world champion boxer
trains and works here.
Known as Laura "Lady
Ram" Ramsey, the nine-year
employee of the Avon Park
Youth Academy currently
holds the Global Boxing
Union's (GBU) middleweight
(160 pounds) world-title belt
and will travel to Nairobi,
Kenya and face the 22 year-
old Veronica Rucker of
Cleveland, Ohio for the inter-
im Women's International
Boxing Association's super
middleweight title December
20.
Many ,wondered who the
woman was in the corner of
the recreational center every
afternoon working her feet,
jumping rope, and shadow
boxing with trainer Miguel
"Mike" Alomar - himself a
four-time Golden Gloves win-
ner from Long Island, N.Y.
"I watched them a few days
and thought that is was
strange, but then I talked to
her and found out she's a
world champion. These peo-
ple are professionals. That's
exciting," said an awed
Joshua Cuencas, a seventh
grader at Avon Park Middle
School.
"They said they would give
me some tips, and let me work
out with them. This is awe-
some," Cuencas exclaimed.
"Why Avon Park? Well that
is sort of a funny story,"
Ramsey chuckled.
"I met my trainer through
his wife Dianna who works
with me at the Academy. We
were meeting in Sebring out-
side, but is was raining one
day, and Mike suggested the
rec center here because it is
kind of half way. We have
been here ever since," said

Ramsey.
With a 9-3-0 record and
four KOs, Ramsey was
recently "called the most dan-
gerous puncher in women's
boxing today" in a story b)
The Boxing Press, a website
that covers professional bo\-
ing.
Born , in Lake Wales.
Ramsey obtained her firsi
world title belt by defeating
Kenya's own Conjestina
Achieng.
"Lady Ram" also displayed
her boxing skills on a Don
King Productions undercard
Jan. 6, 2007, which was at the
Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in
Hollywood, FL.
Alongside Samuel. Peter
and James Toney, she demol-
ished the number one light
heavyweight contender
Nigerian Ijeoma "The Praise"
Egubine of Marietta, Georgia.


That helped to land her a academy, has been training at

AVON PARK - Injuries
and a shallow bench spelled a
4-0 loss for the Avon Park
girls soccer team on Friday
night at home against
Sebring.
Holding tough until the
second half, Avon Park gave
up just one point before the
break whistle blew.
"We did good in the first
half," said Avon park's head
coach Jocelyn Simplice. "But
we had six players on the
bench (injured) tonight, and
noone to send in for
reserves."
The Streaks were still fresh
looking even though they
defeated Booker T hursda3
night on the road while the
scrappy Red Devils showed
some fatigue in the second
half, making Sebring wait for
penalty kicks and kick-offs
while Avon Park walked into
position.
"Take the weekend off and
rest," said Sebring's Steve


'We had six

players on the

bench (injured)

tonight and

noone to send in

for reserves.'

JOCELYN SIlMPLICE
Avon Park head coach

Ashley to the girls after the
game. "When you are playing
a team like Avon park. you
need to be careful. You can
get into a lull, and that opens
the door for them to get the
drop on you. We played well, -
and I was happy with our
passing, but there were some
opportunities we just did not
take : advantage of quick
enough." .
"We took the opportunity
to move Amanda (Grimaldo)

Streaks ice Devils on the pitch


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
AVON PARK- The icy
chill in the air wasn't coming
from the combatants in the
cross-county soccer match-up
Friday night - that was just
from the arctic-like conditions
(at least by Florida standards).
Rather, the action was quite
heated as the heavily favored
Blue Streaks had to fight, bat-
tie and scratch their way to a
2-0 win over the Red Devils
at Avon Park.
"We came out a little flat,"
Sebring head coach Tim
Boulay said. "We just played
last night (Thursday's 2-1 win
at Booker) and with the rival-
IHOEHNE ry here, beating us would
John really make their season."
k Friday And so it was that the
tenacity and aggressiveness


of Avon Park kept the Streaks
at bay for most of the night.
But scoring leader Buck
Schroeder, managed to get
past the Devil defense mid-
way; through the first half,
bending one in from the left
side for the early lead.
Avon Park,'however, nearly
tied it, twice, during the first
40 minutes.
Josue Garcia, lofted a direct
kick that was deflected, but a
rebound .attempt gave the
De Nis an open look, only to see
the shot carom off the sidebar.
Minutes later, Larken,
Fisemes had another look at a
scoring chance, but he too saw
it ricochet off the sidebar to
keep things at 1-0 at the half.
Schroeder upped the lead
with what proved to be the final
score, again coming in from the


left and finding the back of the
net at the 47:25 mark.
"There's a lot of talent
there," Boulay said of the
Avon Park squad. "It's just a
matter of them clicking and as
the season progresses, they're
going to eventually click."
And he was just as pleased
with his own team's effort.
"We played much better
that second half. We moved
the ball better, passed it bet-
ter," Boulay said. "Buck is
playing well and we have a
lot of guys stepping up. A lot
of different guys had shots on
goal tonight."
The Devils will have
another chance to move
toward clicking and making
their season as the two teams
meet again Tuesday at
Firemen's Field.

Grimaldo up to 15 goals

Continued from 1D
to mid-forward for the game,
and we also took the opportuni-
ty to play everyone from our
bench, but I think we missed
taking several shots that our
mid-field passed up," Ashley
said.
Grimaldo picked up two of
the scores, pushing her to the
15 total mark so far for the
year, and senior Lisa
Pryzchocki scored the other
two points, picking up one
from 45 yards out on a blooper. 7
I have got to give Avon
Park credit though, they were
moving the ball well and they
played some decent defense,"
Ashley added. .

Lake Placid ladies outlift LaBelle


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - The
Lady Dragon weightlifters
made it two for two on the
season as they topped LaBelle
46-20 Saturday morning.
The Dragons once again
had several lifters set person-
al bests in their weight classes
in their push to improve.
With only three seniors, the
team expects much improve-
ment as the year goes along.
"I can't say enough about
these girls," commented head
Green Dragon coach Donald
Ridgeway. "They come out
every day trying to get bet-
ter."
In the 119-pound weight
class, Jerica Worley took first
place with a total lift of 150
pounds while Tobisha
Andrews set a personal best


of 150 pounds of her own.
Stephiney Smith took home
the first place finish in the
129-pound weight class with
a personal best in the clean
and jerk along with the bench
press - amassing a weight of
160 pounds.
Takeidra Walker also had a
personal best in the 129-pound
weight class as she took sec-
ond place with 130 pounds.
At 139 pounds, Katelyn
Dunton continued her impres-
sive freshman year as she took
home first place with a person-
al best of 195 pounds.
In the 154-pound weight
class, Lake Placid picked up
the top three spots as each girl
earned personal bests.
Selena Smith lifted 220
pounds while Marlene Walton
tossed around 185 and Tiffany


Smith finished with 130.
Taquesha Hawthorne stole
the show as she took the top
spot at 169 pounds with a lift
total of 250 - enough to be
the strongest lifter for the
entire meet.
Lake Placid took the other
two spots in the 169-pound
weight class with .strong per-
formances from Sierra
Weaver and Lexi Harris.
In the Unlimited weight
class, Kiki Holdman settled
for a second-place finish, but
had a personal best of 220
pounds.
"We have talked all year
about the big goal we have as
a team," said Ridgeway. "Our
goal is to make it to sectionals
and then to state. The girls
have really embraced that and
are working hard toward it."


McKenzie seals deal for Devils


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK - It came
down to the last few seconds,
and one man at the free thrown
line for the Red Devils Friday
night against DeSoto, and
Avon Park was able to
turnover a 51-49 victory with
just four seconds on the clock.
Avon Park's Derrick
McKenzie was able to clinch
the win for the Red Devils in
the final throws of the game
when he sunk both of his
attempts at the charity stripe.
McKenzie only hit three-
of-six on the night, but those
three counted.
"I was nervous at the line,
and DeSoto kept saying that it
was all on me. That's a lot of
pressure, but I did what we are


told to do. I blocked out every-
one and just concentrated on
the rim," McKenzie said. "It
feels good to win one with this
much pressure, real good."
"This is a totally different
team than we were when we
played Booker," said Luther
Clemons, Avon Park's head
coach. "We played four hard
quarters tonight and our defense
was able to contain them. But
tonight the most important
number for us was 10, we had
just 10 turnovers, and that made
all the difference."
Although the overall score
was low, the action was fast
from one end of the court to
the other, and both teams real-
ly struggled to set their plays.
"They played tough
defense," said McKenzie. "That


number 13 (Dorian Shine) kept
us on our toes. If you were not
paying attention, he could
snatch the ball quick."
Shine snared eight steals
for 14 points.
For the Red Devils,
Robertson and Cleveland
Nobles would share top scor-
ing honors with 13 points
each, and Robertson would
lead in rebounds snagging 10.
"We need to bring this
team to our games on the
road." Clemons said. "If we
get past our road worries, we
have a good team."
Avon Park's record is 4-3,
and have lost three of their
five games on the road, which
the Red Devils will hit as
they travel to Palmetto next
Thursday, Dec. 18, at 7 p.m.


Dragon boys chilled

Lady Dragons stay unbeaten


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
News-Sun sportswriter
LAKE PLACID
Sometimes you get the
breaks, sometimes you don't.
On a chilly Friday evening at
Roger Scarborough Memorial
Field, McKeel Academy got
the breaks they needed to slip
past Lake Placid 1-0.
"I don't know what to say,"
head coach Josh Virkler said.
"This is one of those games
that you want to forget. I hope
our guys can shake this one
off and get out there and keep
competing."
Despite a predominantly
scoreless affair,' there was
plenty of excitement created
by the officials who called
the game tight as both teams
had several yellow cards.
McKeel almost cracked
the scoreboard the 27:50
mark as a Wildcat booted the
ball toward the net.


A Lake Placid defender
jumped up to head the ball but
it went towards the goal -
luckily it bounced off the top
post to keep the score at 0-0.
The Wildcat offense came
out in the second half on a
mission as they pressured
the Green Dragon defense.
With 33:45 left in the sec-
ond half McKeel broke loose
in front of the net but
Ernesto Jimenez came up big
with the save.
Then came the officials big
miscue that cost the Dragons
as a Wildcat drove towards the
net for the shot and Jimenez
came out to defend it.
Both players collided and
went down but the ball
squirted away.
At that moment, the referee
should have blown the whistle
since both players were hurt.
With the ball out in front of
the net, Dylan Dore was in the


right place at the right time as
he put it back in for what
proved to be the game winner.
"We had moments of the
first half that were good,"
said Virkler. "I think our guys
were more worried about the
officials in the second half
which caused us to lose our
composure somewhat."
With the loss the Dragons
move to 1-4 in the district
and 1-5 overall. Lake Placid
takes to the field on Tuesday
for another district match up
as they travel to Frostproof.
The Lady Dragons fared
better with their visit to
McKeel, shutting out the
Lady Wildcats, 6-0, to stay
undefeated on the season and
in district play, 6-0-1, 4-0.
Erica Resindez and Julie
Shrewsbury each scored two
goals, while Yudi Terrones
and Maribel Garza tallied
one apiece.


Ramsey strives for local

interest in the 'sweet science'


Continued from 1D
community to possibly begin
an amateur boxing program
that will offer people 8-years
and older a chance to become
constructively involved in the
sport.
"I hope we can get more
kids interested," said the 5'5"
super middleweight.
"There seems to be a mid-
dle school boxing bug going
around right now, and there
may be enough to get a pro-
gram started," Ramsey said.
Ramsey began boxing
training in 1996 at Winter
Haven Police Athletic League
with Jack Leonard and Tony
Morgan.
In 1997, taking a "leap of
faith", she accepted a draft
offer to play professionally in
the Women's Professional
Fast pitch league on the
Charlotte, North Carolina
based team, but at the begin-
ning of her second year of
professional softball she sus-


trained a career-ending injury
to her left hand.
In January 2002, she com-
peted in her first amateur box-
ing bout in St. Petersburg
against Alexandra Maloy.
Although the bout was
close, "Lady Ram" wvon a
points decision.
According to the Woman's
Boxing Archive Network's
(BAN) website, she made her
pro debut on February 28,


2004 at the Seminole Casino
in Coconut Creek, FL where
she won a four-round unani-
mous decision (40-36 x 3)
over Jennifer Mancil (160
lbs) of Clewiston.
Ramsey was named
WBAN's 2006 "Best Kept
Secret" Pro Boxer in January
2007.
Ramsey leaves today to fly
to Africa for her upcoming
bout.

Since it is my wont to
worry in advance, I have
started on my New Year's

I made is to begin work on

am sharing a draft I am work-

Work In Progress:

I entered the room long
before the other reporters and
positioned myself on the bal-

army dance band. The trip to
the crystal punch bowl was a
disappointment so I took a

News-Sun * Sunday, December 14, 2008


Continued from page 1E
furniture and the king-sized
gilt chairs that line the walls.
The boars' heads seemed to
snarl and the birds of prey
appeared to swoop from their
perches into the dusty, musty,
moldy museum-like cav-
ernous ball room. Neither the
crystal chandeliers and the lit
sconces nor the 23-piece
string orchestra softly playing
Brahms could dispel the
heavy atmosphere. I was sure
this grim place must have
been the hall of the
Inquisitors!
Although there was no for-
mal crier to announce each
guest but somewhere out of
the annals of history the ghost
of Crier Past I imagined I
heard the intoning their
names, "Colonel and Mrs.
Samuel Mason!" I could feel
the tension. All eyes turned to
the couple as if they had taken
their cue from the formidable
portraits. They approached
the receiving line: the General
the his Lady, the Adjutant and
his Lady and then what
seemed to be an endless line
of all the Civil War generals
and the whole of the
Daughters of the American
Revolution!
in our interview Mrs. Dorla
Mason confided to me, "It
was awful! The women were
all older, dowdy, colorless. I
felt overdone, overdressed,
out of place," she anguished.
"The dress seemed elegant in
the shop. Besides the clerks
said it was me!"
What Dorila had responded
to were the clerks who oohed
and ahhed over her curva-
ceous figure; the way every
ordinary gown she tried on
looked on her. She couldn't
help but respond to the
extravagant European version
of Madison Avenue (where
she wasn't allowed to shop,)
"This dress is you!"
She asked, "How long will
I have to endure this? How
long will the army of occupa-
tion remain here. I do not
want to be BUF for the whole


United States Army. I am not
responsible for all the years of
race relationship antagonism.
Why couldn't we have just
met at first in my kitchen with
coffee and kuchen and little
Sammy running around so
that there would be something
for us to have in common?"
History recorded the first
military ball at which a Negro
officer attended a white gath-
ering but Dorla had no inter-
est in the history or the signif-
icance of that moment. All
she felt was the raw place on
her head where too much
chemical had burned her scalp
when she was straightening
her hair. All she desired was
to flee to the United States; to
New York City, to her own lit-
tle room in the Brownstone on
Convent Avenue long before
she ever knew Samuel and his
ambition.
Samuel was indeed ambi-
tious. He had risen from the
ranks to become a Lieutenant
in the field and steadily
advanced to a full Colonel.
The reputation of troops
under his command was
exceptional. They were fierce
and brave in battle, precise on
parade and not one had ever
been apprehended by the
M.Ps.
He was only 5-foot, 6 inch-
es, shorter than Dorla in heels
but he looked and acted taller.
He was spare but looked
broad, muscular; with delicate
features and a bald crown cir-
cled with full curly brown
hair and voluptuous mouth
full of sparkling white teeth.
This most important feature
of his face kept him from
looking too stem. He would
strive to look austere but his
mouth betrayed him; especial-
ly when he smiled which he
did not do too often because
he carried the weight on his
shoulders of the entire Negro
race to achieve!
Learned he was not usual-
ly solicitous to Dora, her cry-
ing moods and sad depres-
sions, but he was the soul of
medieval knight as he escort-


ed her into the grand ball-
room. He had his hand under
her elbow and the other
around her waist...the only
unmilitary gesture in his
entire life! It shocked her,
gave her courage reminded
her of the hated ballet and
elocution lessons Momma had
made her take and she rallied
to act the part for this occa-
sion.
Dorla Eleanor Cabot
Mason took her place beside
Samuel and sailed in on his
arm like an African Princess.
The women sitting in the
chairs around the room with
their officers and gentlemen
standing behind them stared
at Dorla and Samuel as they
entered the room. They assid-
uously averted their eyes
from the couple when they
took their places which appar-
ently with military protocol
had been previously ordained.
It left them at the end of the
hall and somewhat isolated.
There was little conversation
except what went on behind
an oh so discrete hand over
mouth, "Look at what she is
wearing. Don't think for
moment I will have her in my
living room! I have to be here.
The United States
Government and the General
says so but not in my home!"
Dorla stood as much in
back of Sam as he would
allow. His ramrod back let the
hurts roll right off him but he
did not have to endure the
insults that Dorla did when
she went to the commissary or
to the officers' wives' teas... if
she was invited. As an offi-
cer's wife she couldn't mix
with wives of non-commis-
sioned officers nor with the
women of the troops. She was
between two worlds.
The war was over, but for
Dorla it had just begun.
