Final report on crash could take 12 months

NTSB completes on-site investigation,
services planned for two men who died


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
( in r i ' ''p i t. h i "y_"uir * no i; ', *"
SEBRING - When the small, sin-
gle-engine Aircoupe 415-D broke up
over Golf Hammock Country Club's
golf course around 11:30 a.m. on
Saturday, its crash killed two men who
were loved by their families and
respected by their friends.
The deaths of pilot James Weener
Wayner, 70, and 46-year-old James
Ricker, his passenger, were a tragic
shock, stunningly unbelievable.
Seven witness reports describe a
moment of absolute horror, when the
two-seater plane appeared to fall apart
in the sky, creating a potentially dead-
ly shower for those in the way below
and no chance of escape for those on
board.


According to Highlands County
Sheriff's Office Lt. Tim Lethbridge,

Carol


Sing set


Friday

Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - Those
who like to sing
Christmas music will
have an opportunity this
Friday evening as the
First United Methodist
Church of Avon Park
holds a Community Carol
Sing starting at 7 p.m.
There will be both an
opportunity for folks to
sing their favorite carols

music provided by mem-
bers of the church's music
ministry.
"Our plan is to run
through the hymnal and
sing a lot of the standards
like 'It Came Upon a
Midnight Clear,' '0 Little
Town of Bethlehem' and
'Joy to the World' --
among others," said Rev.
Gary Pendrak. "We'll also
have a special 'request
time' to pick up any of
those favorites we might
have missed."
In addition, there will
be special music from
Rev. Jim Parker and June
Ford, who sing in the
choir, along with a piano
and organ duet featuring
church organist Karen
Wilson along with pianist
Barbara Winsman.
Following the program

cial church function if we
didn't have food," Rev.
Pendrak joked.
The Community Carol
Sing is just the latest of a
series of outreach pro-
grams put on by the
church, including the
opening of the Second
Blessing retail store each
Saturday and a fundrais-
ing pancake breakfast.

freaks' featured on
AM730 WWTK each
Friday morning."

Congressman Tom Rooney talks to Highlands County Commissioners Tuesday morning at the Government Center in Sebring.


Rooney warns of tough times ahead



in speech to county commission


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - Newly elected
Republican Congressman Tom
Rooney spread his concern not
only for his local constituents
but the overall state of the
nation, saying "we are in for
some challenging times,"
while addressing the
Highlands County Board of
County Commissioners during
Tuesday's meeting.
The word he brought from
Washington was dire.
"The news is worse than
what you are seeing on the
news and on T.V. The bailouts
and economic trends, they are
going to continue for many
years to come as we try to
straighten out this credit world
we have become accustomed
to living in," the District 16
representative said. "It's going
to be tough for all of,us, even
down to the local level."
While Rooney foresees dif-
ficult times ahead, he remains
optimistic.
"We can do the things we
need to get done but it's not
going to be easy," he said.
"There is no way out except to
drastically change the way
we're doing things."
He mentioned President-
elect Barack Obama while dis-
cussing change, a word used as
a campaign slogan for both
parties during the election and
something he said is mandato-
ry.
Rooney's ideas for change
included working toward ener-
gy independence, dealing with
the credit crisis and acting
across party lines to get things
done.
Rooney recalled the shock
when he went to lunch with a
friend of his, Pennsylvania
Congressman Patrick Murphy,
a Democrat.
The two men served togeth-
er in the Judge Advocate
General Corps for four years.
"Come on, guys, it's only
lunch," Rooney said, reenact-
ing his reaction. "Democrats
that hate Republicans,
Republicans that hate
Democrats, that's got to end."
On energy independence,
the key is more action and less
talking, he said.
He commended Florida
Power and Light for their
efforts in this field, calling
their hybrid plant part of a


using the county funds.
The Lake Placid council is
contributing $20,000 of its
own money, with the remain-
ing $60,000 coming from
donations, including $50,000
from the Glades Electric
Cooperative Foundation.
The Miracle League was
created for disabled children
to play baseball. The field uses
rubberized surfaces to help
prevent injuries, has wheel-
,chair-accessible dugouts and a
completely flat surface to
eliminate any barriers to
wheelchair-bound or visually
impaired players, according
miracleleague.com.


"new wave."
FPL broke ground on the
plant earlier this month at its
Martin County facility on the
east side of Lake Okeechobee,
which is also inside Rooney's
district.
"That's a good start," he
said.
The plant uses mirrors
spread across 500 acres of
land to harness heat from the
sun and produce the stqam
needed to generate electricity,
instead of solely relying on
natural gas.
To address the credit crisis,
he said the country needs to
"get away from the idea of
something for nothing."
He said he wants a tighter*
reign over lending and would
like to prosecute predatory
lenders.
After his appearance at the
county commission meeting,
Rooney was scheduled to meet
with business owners in Lake
Placid.
He has already visited
Charlotte, Martin, St. Lucie
and Palm Beach counties to
speak with other local govern-
ment officials.
The reason is to "hit the
ground running on January 6
knowing what the local needs
are," said Jeff Ostermayer,
Rooney's press secretary.
County commissioners
addressed their concern of
unfunded mandates that could
affect the local area, the
importance of agriculture to
the county and the future pro-
duction of ethanol.
"Keep us in mind and we
look forward to working with
you in the future," said
Commissioner C. Guy Maxcy.
During the meeting board
members unanimously
approved the funding for a
Miracle League ball field in
Lake Placid.
The county took on the
lion's share of the funding for

Times are tough, there is no doubt there. And for
small cities like Avon Park, times are especial-
ly tough. In January, the city's leaders will
have another budget review to discuss how they are
going to handle the revenue losses from sales taxes
and state sharing programs.


Although all three Highlands
County cities are facing a loss, Avon
Park seems to be the one hit the hard-
est so far - an estimated $157,000
drop in revenue from sales tax sharing
alone, according to City Finance
Director Renee Green.
With the state of the economy, the
outlook for the first quarter of 2009
does not get any better.
Rumors are flying and tension is
high because when you need to cut
expenses in a business or in a munici-
pality, people automatically think the
best place to look into is payroll.
Now it is true that there is always
some pad in a payroll budget, some
place where you could cut if necessary
and have everyone else pick up the
slack.
The city has already done a good
job of not replacing individuals when
positions are vacated, but we encour-
age the city to look elsewhere first


before considering any more job loss-
es.
We know that cities have essentials
like insurance and project obligations,
but the main question arises in which
services can be cut and still maintain
the quality of life.
Good people are really, really hard
to find and expensive to train, so
every effort needs to be made to keep
those employees we already have,
even if we need to cut services to do
so in the short term.
It is easier to go without new play-
ground equipment this year than it is
to find someone with the right experi-
ence to repair our streets.
We at the News-Sun by no means
feel it is necessary to micro manage
city finances, but we do feel we need
to point out some of the higher expen-
ditures from the adopted budget that
could be considered before cutting
payroll.


Looking at the adopted budget for
2009, a couple of the white elephants
stand out and are clearly dipping
deeply into taxpayer pockets.
Namely, the community center, the
executive airport, parks and recre-
ation.
The community. center has always
been a weight around the council's
neck, and to date it has never paid for
itself.
This upcoming year it is budgeted
that it will cost the taxpayers over
$51,000 but only generates $25,000 in
rents. It doesn't take a degree in math
to know that's not a good investment.
And even though citizens pay for it,
no one is allowed to use the facility
for free so most of the time it sits idle.
Moving out west of town, one can
see the under-used executive airport
that the city maintains.
In the 2009 adopted budget, there
will have to be a transfer of $194,000
from the general fund to pay the bills
for those few who use it as the base
for an expensive hobby on the taxpay-
er dime.
The parks budget calls for more
than $260,000 in playground equip-
ment and in improvements and an
increase of $20,000 for grass mowing


over last year's budget for the parks,
including The Mall.
This is definitely one area that
needs to be looked at and scrutinized
closely by council, or unemployed
city workers will have plenty of time
during the day to play on the swings.
Holding off on improvements may
not always be popular, but it may be
the only way to save jobs.
Finally, the city's recreation budget
needs a closer look.
Generating approximately $31,000
in fees but laying out $153,000 is not
a winning combination for anyone out
there.
It will hurt, but this is one area
where we can temporarily cut services
with discomfort but still retain
garbage pick up and police and fire
protection.
With these facts in mind, the coun-
cil will have to take a close look at the
budget in January, and they will have
to come up with some imaginative and
tough decisions, but again we urge
them to take a close look at services
before payroll.
As a city, we are only as good as our
people, and we have some good peo-
ple.


EXPRESSIONS OF FREE SPEECH


'The First Amendment doesn't exist so we can freely praise our public

officials. It exists so we can freely criticize our public officials.'

CHRIS LAMB, educator, College of Charleston, S.C., 1998


Give the gift of life


What does everyone have,
yet everyone need? You can
give it, and get it. No one
can recreate it and there is no
substitute for it, but you can
use someone else's. And if
you don't have it, or get it,
you'll die?
You guessed it, the correct
answer is blood.
What better time than the
holidays to kick off our
Season of Giving? Florida's
Blood Centers is proud to
partner with the Florida
Association of Food Banks
and Publix for this annual
campaign. Though many of
us are tightening the purse
strings, we might just be
more likely to roll up our
sleeves and give not money,
but our blood.
Perhaps it doesn't come as
much of a surprise that
throughout our community,
people are in need financially
and medically. As Orlando
Sentinel columnist Mike
Thomas reported recently,
more and more Central
Floridians are turning to food
banks to feed themselves and
their families because of eco-
nomic hardship. This is a
troubling truth made more
poignant during the holidays,
but there is something that
we can all do that won't cost
anything but a few minutes.
The demand for blood is
especially acute. Medical
emergencies cannot be sched-
uled, and our community's
blood supply must be con-
stantly replenished. At any
given moment, there's only
72 hours worth of blood
available. If a terrible acci-
dent or natural disaster
strikes, the supply can dimin-
ish in hours. Even more
daunting is the fact that only
about only five percent of
those eligible to donate blood
actually do so.
As the holidays approach,
the need for blood and food
reaches a peak simply

because more people are out
and about "bumping into
each other." You may ask
yourself: what can I do as'an
individual to help meet my
community's need for these
essentials?
We have an answer. Make
a donation that takes nothing
but time, gives life, as well
as a free mini physical that
now includes screening for
diabetes. When you donate
blood with FBC from Nov.
17 to Dec. 31, not only will
your blood be used to treat
-patients in need at local hos-
pitals, you will also receive a
gift card worth $10 that you
can use at any Publix super-
market.
Alternatively, you may
choose to direct FBC to
donate the gift card to your
local food bank to distribute
to those in need. That way,
your donated blood, along
with the re-distributed Publix
supermarket card, will stay
right in the community where
you donate and live. Either
way, you'll give and receive.
Even if it's just getting a
good feeling, it will last far
longer than the current cam-
paign.
To donate, simply visit
any FBC branch office or the
Big Red Bus. To locate a
branch near you, call
888.9 .DONATE or visit

Remember, like food, there
is no substitute for human
blood.

Anne K. Chinoda is president
and chief executive officer of
Florida's Blood Centers, which
provides blood to more than 70
hospitals and medical facilities
throughout central and south
Florida.

Has NATO outlived
its usefulness?
Editor:
The recent dust up in
Georgia followed by the Neo-
Cons immediately urging the
admission of Georgia and the
Ukraine into NATO member-
ship demonstrates how close
we are coming to reigniting
the cold war with Russia.
At its inception, the first
NATO secretary general
declared that its purpose was
"to keep the Russia out, the
Americans in, and the,
German's down." While this
made some sense in 1949,
NATO has now morphed into
a military entente, which is
designed to end run the
United Nations and maintain
a bellicose posture toward
Russia.
When the collapse of the
Soviet Union came, perhaps
we in the west celebrated to
excess, rather than embrace
the opportunity to bring
Russia into the European
community. Instead we
expanded NATO membership
until it rings the Russian bor-
der.
Now rather than expanding
our attempts to co-opt the
Russians into sharing our
objectives in quieting the
unrest in the middle, east, we
build radar and missile bases
on its Polish border while


County needs to
protect tax dollars
Editor:
In an effort to provide
work for the legal citizens of
Highlands County and pre-
vent our tax dollars from
being sent to a foreign coun-
try by illegal aliens, I have
proposed the following to the
county commissioners:
1. The county shall register
and participate in the IMAGE
program.
2. The county shall include
in all contract documents and
bid requirements, that any
employer, company, contrac-
tor or subcontractor that
wishes to enter into an agree-
ment to do business with
Highlands County, register
and participate in the IMAGE
program.
The county shall further
require that each employer,
contractor, subcontractor or
company shall provide docu-
mentation that the IMAGE
requirement has been met
and such documentation shall
be submitted with the bid
document during the letting
process.
The IMAGE program
requires enrollment in E-
Verify, which is a free system
run jointly by the federal
department of Homeland
Security and the Social
Security Administration, that
checks the eligibility status
to work in the United States,.
of newly hired employees.
Requires enrollment in the
Social Security Number
Verification system, requires
an ICE conducted Audit of I-
9 forms of employees hired
during the last. three years
and other requirements, (if
this proposal is passed, your
tax dollars won't be used to
pay illegal aliens). This issue
will come before the county
commission as a workshop, if
you call and e-mail all the
county commissioners to let
them know that you want
them to use the IMAGE pro-
gram to protect your tax dol-
lars, from deportation. It's up
to you.

Remember, we will be
building a $13,000,000 sher-


blandly reassuring them that
it is to defend against an as
yet nonexistent Iranian threat.
It is not too long ago that
concerns about missiles in
Cuba and missiles in Turkey
brought us close to an armed
conflict between the United
States and the U.S.S.R.
The fear that that episode
created is still part of the
Russian .paranoia with respect
to the bona fides of western
intentions.
Russia still remains a pow-
erful force in the world, it's
the single largest state in land
mass and with oil resources
and an agenda intended to
recapture some of the respect
lost when the U.S.S.R.
imploded.
Pushing an alliance of
small states which harbor
some antipathy for Russia for
historic reasons, ever closer
to the Russian border and
potential confrontation is a
receipt for disaster.
Perhaps it is time for
NATO to stand down and we
redouble our efforts to revi-
talize the United Nations as
the appropriate forum for
nation states to confront each
other over the conference
table rather than across
armed borders.

Markham should
make LPPD proud
Editor:
Officer Andrew Markham
was on his way home at
approximately 6:30 p.m. on
Sunday evening and came


upon my vehicle on the side
of the road (Lake Mirror
Drive). I had run over pieces
of broken concrete block, a
piece of which put a hole on
the side wall of my tire.
Officer Markham immediate-
ly took over trying to jack
the vehicle, preparing to
remove the tire, at this time
the jack that was placed in
the sand rolled over dropping
the vehicle. I had my arm in
on the tire at this time, I cut
my arm.
Officer Markham, seeing
that we could not get the
vehicle up with what we had
to work with, said, to the wife
and myself he would go
home and get a floor jack
that he has and return.
He returned in his private
truck, along with his wife,
who brought along some first
aid materials to help me, then
proceeded to raise the vehicle
and complete the change-out.
'Then, after the emergency
flashers were on for all this
time the battery was down,,
again Officer Markham had.
the cable to jump start the
vehicle.
My wife and myself want
you to know the outstanding
man that you have in Officer
Markham, I have seen other
Officers from time to time
assisting others. However,
Officer Markham went com-
pletely out of his way to help
us.
If possible we would
appreciate if he be recog-
nized for his character and a
letter placed in his file.

Audrey Coulter, 2, her dad Kevin and brother Caleb, 3, play together Saturday afternoon at the Children's Museum of the
Highlands in Sebring. The Coulter's usually play at the museum two or three times a week.


Children's Museum looking to expand


Continued from page 1A
museum is often crowded. Some fami-
lies have even had to leave and return at
a later time.
Expanded space means not only new
exhibits, but more room to play in them.
The museum includes a doctor's
office; a diner (complete with counter,
kitchen and booth), a fire station, a fully
stocked grocery store, an airplane, a
climbing maze, a rock wall and all kinds
of interactive video games, some of
which involve stomping on the floor or
dancing. There is a drum that beats to
the time of a child's heartbeat when
one's hands are pressed against it.
There is so much to do Crowder
advises parents it will take at least two
hours for their children to check out
everything. Even then, she added, many
children have to be dragged away.
The museum's board has already
raised $20,000 toward the expansion.


Grant means one night free
A grant from the Wachovia Bank to
The Children's Museum of the
Highlands means one Friday night a
month - the night of Gallery Walk -
the museum will be able to welcome
children tree of charge from 6-9 p m.
Linda Crowder, the museum's direc-
tor, is thrilled to provide the opportu-
nity. She'd prefer not to have to
charge the $3 entry fee at all, but
needs the revenue to meet day-to-day
bills. "The electric bill every month is
$1,200 to $1,500 all by itself," she
said.
The museum had already instituted
"Thrifty Thursdays,' when entry only
costs $1 per person after 5 p.m.

Crowder said if they can raise
$100,000, the museum may be able to
attract grants from foundations which


support this kind of resource for chil-
dren. Typically, however, one of the
most important factors the foundations
look at before issuing grants is commu-
nity involvement, meaning local sup-
port.
If the museum has to fund the entire
project by itself it will need $700,000.
There has always been support for the
museum, Crowder added, but with the
economy in the shape it is in "some
people are saying (a donation) depends
on what their investments do."
The board has set up levels of giving,
each level earning the donor benefits
including naming rights for classrooms,
exhibits, or - for $350,000 - the new
building. Donors may be individuals or
businesses.

um's Web site at childrensmuseumhigh-

AP stalling on public records request


Continued from page 1A
amending CRA plans, which,
according to Barnard, raises
doubts as to the authority that
council has to issue grants.
The city council took the
role of being the CRA board
after concerns that three sepa-
rate CRAs were not legal, and
converted the CRA boards into
advisory status only.
Schuler addressed Barnard's
issue about CRA status when
she stated publicly in the
Southside CRA meeting last
Thursday that the council had
people' looking into what the
city's options were and what
direction they would take con-
cerning the public hearings
issue.
"Mayor (Sharon) Schuler
told us in our CRA meeting
that the issue of the public
hearings was being
researched. I wanted to know
who was doing that research,
and what information was
being looked into. We have to
make sure we are doing this
thing right," Barnard said.
Sarah Adelt, Avon Park's
city manager, responded to
Barnard's complaints by stat-
ing that the city was short
handed right now.
"We have been asked by
Mayor Sharon Schuler to do
the research in the matter, and
we are gathering all the infor-
mation we can and then we
will leave it to the council to
decided what to do with this. I
have a girl out right now, and
we are responding to these
requests as quickly as possi-
ble.
"Mr. Barnard gave us five
requests last Thursday, three
on Friday, and now six more
today. I informed,Mr. Barnard
that we will get to his request,
but asked him to wait until
Tuesday after the meeting
because we were trying to do
the research now," Adelt said
on Monday afternoon in a
phone interview.
"He is asking for a lot of
research that we do not have
right now. We have always
answered requests in a reason-
able time, and right now we


are trying to put together
enough information to give the
council some options on these
issues. I don't think the coun-
cil has done anything wrong at
this point, but I cannot make
that statement until we have
done all the research," Adelt
said.
When pressed about who
was doing the research, Adelt
answered that it was up to
council to get the city attorney
involved, and that the research
was being done in house.
"There is just me and Cheryl
(Tiejen) working on this right
now. We are trying to put
everything together. He
(Barnard) is asking for a lot of
research and we are short on
.people right now. We are try-
ing to comply, but I asked Mr.
Barnard to wait until the
Tuesday after the council
meeting. Then we will have
the research packet done. That
way I can sit down and answer
all of his questions for him.
But we cannot do the research
for the council if we get five
requests every day. That's not
realistic," Adelt said.
The city's Public Records
Request Policies and
Procedures statement on the
Web site states that "In most
cases, a public record request
will be acted upon as soon as
possible; however, in most
cases where the request
involves large number of
paper copies, extensive
research ... the office of the
Records Clerk, or other City
staff, shall respond to the
request in a time deemed rea-
sonable by both the requester
and the Records Clerk or other
City staff."
According to Adria Harper,
Director of the First
Amendment Foundation in
Tallahassee, Florida Statue is
clear on what time frame a
municipality has to answer.
"After a public records
request, time is provided to
locate, review for exemptions,
redact, and provide the
records. If the record will take
more than an hour or so, then
the the requester has to be
informed of when a record can


be available for preview,"
Harper said.
To redact is to remove pri-
vacy items like social security
numbers.
"Reasonable in the statute is
the amount of time it takes to
locate, review, redact, and pro-
vide. There is no provision for
getting the council the infor-
mation before anyone else. If
the record cannot be provided,
the citizen has to be notified in


writing as to why, but the
information has to be provided
as soon as it is located,
reviewed, and " redacted,"
Harper stated.
"I don't think having to wait
until after the council meeting
to get this information is rea-
sonable. It keeps me from
making my own decisions on
this, and it makes me feel like
they are putting me off,"
Barnard said.

NTSB investigating

Saturday's plane crash


Continued from page 1A
day, he said, the first passing
without trouble.
Witnesses reported a
change in engine sound just
before the plane began to
break apart. The weather
was good, with some wind
but clear, Knudson said. The
pilot had not radioed any
problems.
The NTSB investigation
will be thorough, Knudson
said, including a close exam-
ination of the surviving air-
plane pieces and the mainte-
nance logs, as well as the
pilot's medical records and
background experience.
Family and friends take
comfort that Wayner and
Ricker were devout
Christians.
"When they quit flying at
around noon Saturday, both
were immediately in
Heaven," said Garth Winsor,
manager of Sudan Interior
Mission.
Winsor knew and liked
Wayner, who had first vol-
unteered with SIM, then
spent winters there while
also living in Michigan. He
had recently moved to
Sebring permanently.
Winsor will be leading the
memorial service today at
the SIM chapel in Wayner's
honor.
Wayner (who legally
changed the spelling of his
name from the original
Dutch Weener so people
would know how to pro-
nounce it) retired to Florida
after fulfilling a career as a
Christian school math and
science teacher, and mis-
sionary in Nigeria, Zaire and
Kenya. Flying was part of
his ministry.
"(Wayner) was a very
experienced pilot," Winsor
said. "He flew by the num-
bers, with a conscientious
attitude." He added that
Wayner was a typical pilot
who so loved to fly that any
*-excuse was a good one,
especially if it benefited or
brought joy to someone else.
"He was. a family man,
with a great love of life and
Jesus Christ," Winsor said.
"He was happiest sharing
with others, helping others."
Miriam Samuels grew up
in Africa, the daughter of
missionary parents.
She remembers Wayner
from those years she lived in
Nigeria, when Wayner
would ferry her and other
missionary children to and


from boarding school at
vacation time - the only
formal education being a 10-
hour drive away over coun-
try without roads. Wayner
kept remote outposts sup-
plied as well.
"He was a wonderful,
wonderful man," Samuels
said, calling from West Palm
Beach to express her condo-
lences.
Samuel's parents, after all
these years ended up his
neighbors in SIM. The fami-
lies are friends.
"Back in the day he was a
bush pilot," Samuels said.
"Imagine, he was a pilot fly-
ing over the jungles of
Africa, no runways, no air-
port lights, having to scare
cows out of the way - to
think a freak accident like
this ..." she paused and then
said with a deep sigh, "It's
just really sad. We're all
devastated, just devastated."
Ricker had worked at SIM
in the past and maintained
his friendships with many of
the people there. He was the
owner and operator of a
landscaping firm, and had
worked for Fishbrand Tree
Farm.
It was an act of friendship
and camaraderie that lead
the two men to be up in the
air Saturday - Wayner giv-
ing Ricker an opportunity to
see his house in Golf
Hammock from the air.
The community remains
stunned by the suddenness
of the unexpected tragedy.
At 46 Ricker was young
with a growing family. He
leaves his wife, Linda Ann
Ricker, and two children,
Brittany Ricker and Casey
Ricker. The family remains
in seclusion.
At 70, Wayner was con-
sidered a youngster by SIM
standards, the average resi-
dent being about 81 years
old.He leaves his wife, Julia,
three children and 12 grand-
children.
But despite the fact they
will be much missed, friends
also know both men are now
with God.
A memorial service will
be held for Ricker Thursday.
at the Whispering 'Pines
Baptist Church. The family
will receive friends one hour
before the service, beginning
at 2 p.m.
A service for Wayner is
scheduled-for 10 a.m. today
at the SIM Chapel in
Sebring.

Military News
Ronnie Sliwicki
Ronnie S. Sliwicki graduated from
the Army Reserve Officer Training
Corps Leader Development and
Assessment Course, also known as
"Operation Warrior Forge," at Fort
Lewis, Tacoma, Wash.
The 31 days of training provide the
best possible professional training and
evaluation for all cadets in the aspects
of military life, administration and
logistical support. Although continued
military training and leadership devel-
opment is included in the curriculum,
the primary focus of the course is to
develop and evaluate each cadet's
officer potential as a leader by exer-
cising the cadet's intelligence, com-
mon sense, ingenuity and physical
stamina. The cadet command assesses
each cadet's performance and
progress in officer traits, qualities and
professionalism while attending the
course.
Cadets in their junior and senior
year of college must complete the
leadership development course. Upon
successful completion of the course,
the ROTC program, and graduation
from college, cadets are commis-
sioned as second lieutenants in the
U.S. Army, National Guard, or
Reserve.
The cadet is a student at the Marion
Military Institute, Ala.
He is the son of Donald N. and
Olivia H. Sliwicki of Sebring.
Sliwicki is a 2007 graduate of
Sebring High School.

training at Fort Benning, Columbus,
Ga.

and ceremonies, weapons, map read-
ing, tactics, military courtesy, military

tions. Additional training included

Sebring Optimist
Club
SEBRING - What with
the gloomy status of educa-
tion in the state of Florida, it
is newsworthy to report that
Florida is No. 1 in nationally
certified teachers. Highlands
County has about 40 of them.
Let it be noted that it is the
people of this nation, not our
national or state govern-
'tentts, who have exhibited
this greatness.
Highlands County is wor-
thy to be included in that

Sebring
Recreation Club
By Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING - Club mem-
bers that have been under the
weather find Ken Price being
in the hospital three days and
now out. Betty Geible has a
broken shoulder. Bill Hann
has a shoulder reversal.
Franklin Bowers passed out
while manning the desk and
was taken to the hospital. He
is now home and doing fine.
In one book on shuffle-
board "There are no two ways
,about it, if you want to win a
top tournament, you must
keep the board clean by blast-
ing. You have to clip the disc
with impunity. The harder you
shoot, the less is the chance
.that it (your disc) will stick.
You must play percentage! If
your opponent should be two
or three numbers behind, they
will be going on the low open
,board. If you stick they will
then kitchen you. You now
have only one play and that is
to shoot hard at their number
to combine your kitchen out
of there."
Dec. 23 is a Highlands
County tournament in Sebring
that all shufflers should
attend. The match starts at
8:30 so don't be late. Bring
your lunch and $5 for a fun
day of shuffleboard. You will
be finished shuffling around 3
p.m. and you may even have
more money for gifts than you
started with. If we all get
behind these tournaments, we
should have 60 shufflers at
least. A lot of work goes into
your tournaments, so we
should at least try and bring a
friend to these. This will show
that the work was not in vain.
John Bushee washes the
courts a couple of days before
the tournament, gets the
building ready, restrooms,
tables and chairs set up for
your comfort. Coffee made
and doughnuts for your day to
start off right. He will still be
working when we get home
after the match, just for us to
have a good time.
Ping-pong is getting to be
better known in Sebring and it
is because the players are giv-
ing their all to the sport. They
are not trying to keep it a
secret about the club and the
nice people they meet. So
many people are timid on
meeting strangers but very
nice, friendly people just like
you. If you feel left out, stop
by and see how much fun is
had at ping-pong. Tom Bruha
plays table tennis and is very
good I have been told. He is a
good shuffler also and we
have seen some pictures of
fish he may have caught.
Line dancers make
Wednesday evenings shine at
the club. They have so much
fun with new dances and peo-
ple around them just radiate.
Dancers come from Lake
Placid and Avon Park, still
leaving room for you to join
in the fun. Line dancing is not
the only thing that you get at
the club, table tennis, cards,
shuffleboard, bingo, all of this
with one club membership.
Reports on bingo Dec. 3 is
that Lisa (Smiley) and Joe
LaCotti were outstanding
;once again. They even had
Friends with them, like we all
are supposed to. Bingo needs
your attention if you want it
to keep on. Invite your friends
and even buy them a card for
luck. Will Joe and Lisa be the
'only ones that have friends
that play bingo? Letus not be
ashamed of the club and
spread the good word. Don't
let us be the best kept secret
in Sebring.
Sunday at 2 p.m. the Blue
Grass Travelers are in-house
to entertain you. They do an
outstanding job and are very
popular in our area. You do
not have to be a club member


but you must come. If you
miss out on Bluegrass
Travelers, you miss out on a
'good start for your week.
Start your week with church
;followed by Bluegrass and
you will be on the way to a
.perfect week. Come see us at
333 Pomegranate Ave.
(behind the Sebring Police
Station), home for your
Sebring Recreation Club.

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

Helms gets Royal


treatment


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehine@newVss1n.coin
SEBRING - Lady Blue
Streak hurler Niki Helms
signed on to extend her soft-
ball career at Warner
University in Lake Wales.
"I wasn't really looking
around all that much," Helms
said. "I just wanted to find an
opportunity. Warner gave me
the chance and I took it."
That the search didn't
extend too far is one of the
benefits, as Helms "loves the
fact that it's close to home,"
both for her sake as well as
her parents, Gail and Gary.
As she prepares for the
upcoming season with the
Sebring squad virtually intact
from last year, that sense of
familiarity and closeness also
played a big part in her deci-
sion.
"The coach (Shawn Gary)
was real nice, easy to get
along with, and the team was
real close and had a family
feel," Helms said.
Helms -is the fifth Warner
(NAIA) softball signee for the
2009-10 season, following
Tabatha Martin of Lake
Wales, Amanda King of
Timber Creek High School in
Orlando, Courtney Owens of
Tampa Gaither and Jessica
Knight of Keystone Heights.
The Lady Royals are com-
ing off a ground-breaking
season in 07-08, going 33-13
and winning both the Sun
Conference and Region XIV

Lady Devils top Sebring 'in school'


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.comn
AVON PARK - The Avon
Park Lady Devils thrilled the
home crowd on Tuesday
afternoon when they put the
Sebring girls' basketball
team away with a 55-31 win.
"Finally. It is good to beat
Sebring, especially on your
own court," said Paulette
Daley, Avon Park's head
coach. "Overall, the game
went good. We started slack-
ing a bit in the second half
when they went man-to-man,
but overall it
Avon Park was a great
match."
-5 Leading the
Lady Devils
Sebring on the court
S was Beonca
31 Godfrey, who
1' picked up 16
points, three
of those hoops coming from
outside the three-point line.
"Beonca stepped up for us
today, she gave us some
buckets when we needed
them most, and that gave us
the little boost we needed to
go ahead," Daley said.
"It feels good to win one at
home, I don't think we have
won a game since 2001
against Sebring," said
Godfrey.
Godfrey would hit the first
two points of the game on
free throws, and then follow-
up with a steal and two more
in a lay-up.
"All I could think about
today was 'concentrate, con-
centrate,'" Godfrey said. "I

struggled a bit when we went
man-to-man, but I was able
to settle down and we were
able to put them away."
"Their strengths are our
weaknesses," said Sebring's
head coach Mike Lee "We
are going to have to concen-
trate and. work on those
weaknesses, but all the credit
goes to Avon Park. They
played well and took away
our penetration inside.
"When we were playing
zone defense, they worked


the ball well inside, and
when we shifted to man-to-
man, they adjusted and began'
hitting hard from the outside,
they adjusted better than we
did," he continued. "Avon
Park's guards are strong, and
that is one area where we
struggle. We are still devel-
oping our guards and they
have some smart and fast
seniors in there."
Following close on
Godfrey's heels, Daija
Barrett would net 13 points


for the Lady Devils, and
Jamee Hawthorne v.ould
score eight.
Lady Streak Shannon
Willijnms \iould net seven
points before lea ,in: the
.mrne in the third \ kth a con-
ctM:on, and .lerica Moore
wouldl d -core se'.n as well for
Sebring.
Both leams go on the road
on Thursday,. Sehring is at
Booker at 7:30 p.m and
Avon Park plabs in Palmetto
at 6 p.m.

Lady Dragons defeat d'Frostproof

Take over as lone leaders in district


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
News-Sun sportswriter
LAKE PLACID - "This is
why I coach," commented
Green Dragon girls soccer
coach John Merlo. "It was
great to see how much we
battled all game long. This
game was fun."
Merlo was making a refer-
ence to a clash of the titans
type of soccer match that put
the undefeated Frostproof
Bulldogs against the unde-
feated Green Dragons.
It was a
Lake Placid game for the
ages and one
that the
SBulldogs
Frostproof would wish to
1 forget as they
fell 3-1 in
front of a Lake
Placid home crowd at Roger
Scarborough Memorial Field.
The Dragons got off to a
slow start in the first half as
much of the game was spent
on their half of the field.
Frostproof had a couple
good chances at scoring in
the opening 40 minutes of
the game with the first
chance coming from Marisol
Rivera whose shot missed
the goal by only feet.
The other scoring oppor-
tunity came from Rivera
who missed high again.
Lake Placid had its chance
to score Erica Resendiz blast-
ed a shot from 20 yards out
that sailed just high.
At the half the score was

The tie game didn't last
long as Yuribia Terrones got
out on a fast break with 30:45
left on the clock and was able
to send a shot past the out-
stretched arms of the goalie.
The Bulldogs were able to
respond ten minutes later
when Lesley Alverado beat a
Green Dragon defender and
was able to send a kick into
the goal that ricocheted off
the goalie to tie the game up.
"After the goal I began to
wonder how we would

missed over 20 of our lay-ups,
and that is not acceptable,"
Harris said. "We were in too
big a hurry or not concentrat-
ing, but we cannot miss that
many lay-ups in a close
game."
Jewel Campbell, Sebring's
6-foot-8 center, controlled the


skies under the net, snagging
10 rebounds, five offensive
and five defensive, in just
three periods of play, but had
just two points for the night.
Joe Young and Tevin Toney
would follow Campbell in
rebounds with eight a piece,
and both scored eight points
by the end of the game.


The Streaks play again on
Friday and Saturday when
Sebring hosts the Taveniere
Tournament which starts at 3
p.m.
Jake Trussell would fire at
will and lead the Streaks with
16, while Devin Clarke and
Chris Grubb would pickup 12
each.


Pryzchocki, Copley emerge as threats,

hope is for Grimaldo's health


Continued from 1C
some more scoring punch was
discovered off the feet of
Pryzchocki and Copley as
they went for three and two
goals, respectively.
"It's my first hat trick,"
Pryzchocki said. Ever. I was
itching so much to play last
year, I guess I'm making up
for lost time."
Adding a goal apiece to
Sebring's win were Grimaldo
and Destiny Diaz.


Blue Streak junior varsity,
coach Casey Dixon, filling in
for varsity head coach Steve
Ashley, knows how tough a
loss it could be if Grimaldo is
out any length of time, but
feels the team has the parts
needed to carry on.
"Amanda is so versatile, we
can put her anywhere and she
does a great job," he said.
"But we can put her any-
where, also, because we have
the depth and now the girls


will have to move around
some."
But for the team as a whole,
for the Grimaldo family as
well as Amanda herself, the
hope is for the best news pos-
sible and a speedy return.
The teams are back in
action tomorrow, Dec. 18, as
the Devils host Palmetto,
while the Streaks head to
Hardee for their own district
matchup.


Future Royal eyes state for Streaks


Continued from 1C
and expectations.
"I've been told I'll have the
chance to pitch and play out-
field," Helms said.
Which will give her strong
bat a chance to contribute
when she's not pitching - a
rare occurrence in her high
school career as the staff ace
who logged 131 innings last
season, with a 1.87 ERA and
121 strikeouts.
"I just want to have fun, get
to know everyone and be


helpful to the team," Helms
said. "And keep my grades
up."
Those grades will need to
stay up as she is debating
between going into a biology
major for dentistry or a
course-load toward physical
therapy.
"I haven't decided yet," she
said. "But I know I want to
stay close to softball and all
sports."
But that's a ways down the


road, as Helms is finishing up
her travel ball schedule with
the Florida Mini-Bulls of
Tampa and starting her condi-
tioning for the upcoming Blue
Streak season.
"We should be really strong
this year," she said. "I'd real-
ly like the chance to win state,
I'll be disappointed if we
come up short."
A level 'of expectation that
seems well suited for the
newest Lady Royal.


Blue Streaks down Lady Dragons

with third-quarter surge


first they were sad but then
they kicked it up a notch and
we were like a team on a
mission."
The Dragons didn't back
down, though, as they bat-
tled back to take the lead
when Terrones scored her
second goal of the game with
6:15 left in the game.
Terrones got a nice pass
from Julie Shrewsbury and
was able to do the rest as she
put the ball high enough to
get over the goalie.
With less than two min-
utes to go in the game
Resendiz picked up her first
goal of the contest as she got
a free kick from 25 yards out
that sailed into the back of
the goal to give the Dragons
an insurance score.
With the two goals on the
night, Terrones has added to
her total of 19 for the season.
The Dragons defense
played a stellar game all
night long as they got big
play from Shrewsbury,
Ashley Paeplow, Eva
Ramirez, Britany Collison,
and Maribel Garza.
The most impressive play
on defense came from goalie
Sarah Thompson who had 10
saves with four of those being
one-on-one with a shooter.
With the win the Dragons
moved to 7-0-1 on the sea-
son, 5-0 in district play.
The Dragons take to the
field again on Saturday as
they travel to Frostproof for
the final district game.

SEBRING - The cross-
county battle was living up to
it's billing as the first half
ended, but foul trouble for
Lake Placid and a stepped up
defense made for a lopsided
second half in Sebring's 55-
41 win Monday night.
"We stuck with them for a
while," Lady Dragon head
coach Shondra LeGree said.
"But foul trouble really took
away our aggressiveness."
The Lady Streaks broke out
first, with Shannon Williams
scoring four and Tangie
McCullors three to stake
Sebring to a 13-2 lead.
But Brandi
Sebring Colbert single-
5a5 handedly
brought Lake
Lake Placid Placid back,
scoring the last
41 4 eight points of
1 I the opening
quarter on two
trey's and a short jumper to
cut it to 13-10.
Foul trouble had already
begun, however, as Lady
Dragon floor-leader Kaneisha
Hamilton picked up her third
as the quarter ended.
Olivia Bullock came up big
for Sebring in the second, as
the six-footer worked inside
for four points.
But that would represent
half of the Streak scoring for
the period.
Lake Placid, meanwhile,
got contributions from
Jamaica Gayle, who scored
inside and on a put-back, and
Sierra Weaver, who accounted
for five points to bring it to a
21-21 tie at the half.
"We started out strong, but
in the second period I think
we relaxed a bit," Sebring
head coach Mike Lee said.


"They really battled us, but at
halftime we talked about
picking up the intensity on
defense and on the boards."
The halftime talk certainly
paid off.
Jerica Moore lead the way
with three jumpers and both
Shoop and Williams chipped
in with four points in the third
quarter.
But it was the defense that
limited the Dragon scoring
opportunities and created
more for the Lady Streaks.
Colbert's two three-point-
ers were all Lake Placid


would muster as the 18-6 dif-
ferential in the period pretty
much sealed the outcome.
Colbert paced the Dragon,
and game, scoring with 17 on
five three's, while Williams
lead three Streaks in double
figures with 16.
Shoop added 12, along with
15 rebounds, and McCullors
had 11 points and 12 rebounds
as Sebring established it's
dominance on the boards with
56 for the game.
Zakeria Dawkins dished
out . five assists for the
Streaks.
