Plane crashes took 4 lives in '08


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - Just weeks
have passed since two men
were killed in a plane crash,
one of three aviation acci-
dents in the county over the
past six months.
The first was in Lake
Placid next to the Placid
Lakes airport.
Mason Smoak, 33, was
piloting a Piper Cub airplane
on June 20 when he crashed
suddenly.
The crash killed Smoak
and his passenger, David
Maehr, a scientist from the
University of Kentucky who


THE YEAR

was in the county to research
black bears.
The circumstances of the
crash are still under investiga-
tion. The plane appeared to
take a nose-dive only yards
from the runway.
Smoak was very active in
the community and the citrus
industry, serving as president
of the Highlands County


Citrus Growers Association
and chairman of the Heartland
Agricultural Coalition at the
time of his death.
Two months later, a plane
from Fort Pierce was forced
to make a crash landing near
the Highlands County
Landfill when a bird flew into
the propeller and shattered it.
The single propeller plane,
a 1946 Aircoupe, took off
from the Sebring airport after
pilot Vincent Molina, 55, and
passenger Elizabeth
Mallonee, 62, had stopped
there to eat lunch.

Andrews saga

grabbed local

spotlight
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - In a year that saw
the collapse of the housing market,
an enormous spike in fuel prices, a
bare knuckled presidential cam-
paign, and the election of the first
African-American to the presidency,
Sebring had to try hard to keep a
person's attention.
It found its answer in Dan
Andrews.
Andrews was hired by the Greater
Sebring Chamber of Commerce in
March 2005 to serve as its executive
director.
He was seen at the time as a rising
star in Highlands County, and
although troubling rumors about the
chamber's finances had begun to
surface by late 2007, he was the pop-
ular choice for the city council seat
being vacated by Jeff Carl-on. % ho
-was a candidate for
the board of county
commissioners..
Andrews won the
seat handil,, receiv-
ing the most votes
cast, 385 or 25.4 per-
cent, in a disappoint-
ingly low turnout. Andrews
Only 10 percent of
Sebring's 5,803 registered voters
cast a ballot.
Andrews was sworn into office
April 1.
Before the month was out, howev-
er, Andrews was fired as executive
director of the chamber by its board.
which cited "gross negligence."
The matter was turned over to the
state's attorney for investigation.
In the meantime Andrews contin-
ued to sit on the city council.
Then, on Nov. 24, Andrews was
arrested on one count each of grand
theft, scheme to defraud and making
false entries on the books of a corpo-
ration.
He is accused of using chamber
funds to enhance his lifestyle. For
example, he is alleged to have used a
chamber credit card to buy a Tiffany
necklace for his wife, an expensive
set of golf clubs for himself, and
renovations and improvements to his
home.
He is also accused of illegally
using scholarship funds to pay for
chamber expenses.

'Cut' the

word of

the year

for school

district
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - The recession
has been hard on Florida
schools and affected the local
school district from the top-
down.
Flexibility was granted in the
class size amendment, giving
temporary relief from adding
portables and new teachers, but
that wasn't enough.
The majority of the school
district's budget is spent on
personnel - 85 percent - and
that was where school board
members made cuts.
Many positions were frozen
as everyone from teachers to
administrators retired or were
let go.
"It will be an interesting year
for the employees that are
here," School Board member J.
Ned Hancock said earlier in the
year. "A lot of the cuts we are
hoping to make are for people
that leave, and leave (their)
positions unfilled. It's a loss to
the school district but it's sav-
ing money."
Those cuts were made dur-
ing the months after Hancock
spoke about them.
With no need to recruit 100
or more teachers like in years
past, the recruitment specialist
position remains vacant after
Sean Rego left late this year.
So does the Director of
Management Information
Services position, whose
responsibilities continue to rest
with Becky Fleck, who has
since been promoted to the
Assistant Superintendent of
Curriculum and Instruction.
The Coordinator of
Exceptional Student Education
position is still unfilled, with
the duties handled by Becky
Johnson, director of Student
Support Services, and others in
the department.
"Things continue to get
worse when the economy isn't
doing well," Superintendent
Wally Cox said in late August.
"Until the economy recovers
we are going to be really tight
as well."
Another 25 full-time non-
instructional positions in vari-
ous departments were cut for
this year's 2008-09 budget,
including eight in school level
support and seven in the trans-
portation department.
There was no way to keep
the classroom from being
effected, with 35 less teachers
employed by the district than
the 2007-08 school year.
Few teachers were fired,
with attrition taking care of
most of the cuts, Cox said.
There was no other way
administrators could find to
save the money.
"When you've already pared
the budget down as much as we
have, you are looking at salary
and benefits," Hancock said
after a school board meeting
late in the year. "(The budget
is) a lot worse than what we
thought it would be."
To add to the cuts, the state
funds each district based on the
number of students the district
estimates will be enrolled that
year.
In October they adjusted the
funds allotted to a district by
taking the actual number
enrolled.
Highlands County overesti-
mated its population by about
200 students, or 1.6 percent.
Cox and board members said


their goal is to minimize the
effect on students. They want
to keep as many dollars in the
classroom as possible.
"It's so bad I don't think we
can protect it completely even
if we want to," he said. "We are
not in a position to say there
will be no impact, but we
should have as little impact as
possible."
Cox and his staff at the dis-
trict office continue to prepare
for additional budget cuts in
preparation of the 2009-10
school year.

Firefighters soak down the area of a brush fire along the train tracks in downtown
Lake Placid Monday afternoon. The fires, which spanned a five-mile stretch of track,
were sparked by exhaust from a southbound freight train.


Train sparks brush fires


along track in Lake Placid


By SCOTT DRESSEL
scott.dressel@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID - A heavily loaded train
heading south along the South-Central
Florida Express rails in Lake Placid sparked
a series of brush fires along five miles of
track, starting just north of downtown.
Nearly 20 firefighters from six different
departments responded to the flare-ups and
kept the flames from damaging any build-
ings, despite the fire getting to within feet of
some of the buildings on the west side of
Main Avenue.
The northernmost fire was right at the
edge of downtown, and the southern tip of
the damage was near Old State Road 8,
halfway between U.S. 27 and State Road 70,
Lake Placid Volunteer Fire Department
Chief Adam Hess said. ,
A stretch of about 100 yards through
downtown was heavily scorched, casting a
layer of smoke over Main Avenue and the
surrounding streets out to U.S. 27.
Hess the only damage other than brush


was to a power pole, an air conditioner and
a pile of old railroad ties, which needed
foam to be extinguished due to their coating
of creosote.
"It wasn't a locked brake (that started the
fire)," Hess said. "The train had a heavier
load than normal, so the soot particles from
the exhaust were super heated and started
the fires."
Hess said fires along the tracks are not
uncommon.
"It seems like every couple of years we
get a fire along there. Most of the times, it's
from brakes. This is the first time we've had
one from exhaust."
Hess said he's going to ask the railroad
company to keep its easement mowed to
help limit the danger of future fires.
Hess said that in addition to his depart-
ment, firefighters from Leisure Lakes,
Highlands County Fire Services, Highlands
Park, Placid Lakes and Sun 'N Lake South
were also involved in the effort.


Boys & Girls Club

selling fireworks today


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK - Wally
Randall, the City of Charm's
most dedicated fireworks
enthusiast and director of the
Boys & Girls Club hopes
people will celebrate the
new year safely, but not nec-
essarily quietly.
In fact, Randall is hoping
people light up the sky and
usher out the year with a
nice, loud bang.
That's because the Boys
& Girls Clubs are selling
fireworks today from 9 a.m.
to 9 p.m. as a way to raise
money.
Look for the two big


white tents, with American
flags on the top - one in
front of Wal-Mart, and the
other down in Sebring,
across from McDonald's.
The Walmart site is where
parents can find the "safe
and sane" fireworks, Randall
said.
Down by McDonald's are
what he called the "real"
fireworks - things like bot-
tle rockets, mortars, and M-
1000s.
He urges everyone to stop
by and enter a drawing being
held at each site. The winner
of each will walk away with
over $100 of fireworks.


Legislative delegation to meet


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - The annual
Highlands County legisla-
tive delegation meeting will
be held from 9:30-11 a.m.
on Wednesday, Jan. 21, at
the Highlands County
Commission chambers at
600 S. Commerce Ave.
Requests to be included
on the agenda for the meet-
ing should be sent to
Senator J.D. Alexander's
office at 2925 Kenilworth
Blvd. no later than noon on
Tuesday, Jan. 13.
Decisions regarding local
legislation for the 2009 leg-
islative session will be


made at this time. All pro-
posals for local bills are
expected to be presented at
the hearing and must be
drafted in bill form, accom-
panied by a resolution from
the local government sup-
porting the proposed legis-
lation. This information
must be submitted by Jan.
13.
Individuals wishing to
address the delegation on
local bills being considered
should plan to attend the
public hearing. Following

the public will be invited to

SEBRING - Scott
Noethlich became city admin-
istrator in July. He had
arrived in Sebring in 2002 to
become information technol-

promoted to assistant city
administrator in 2006.
That position was created
at the time so Noethlich could
be groomed to replace Bob
Hoffman, the city's long time
city administrator.
By the summer of 2008 he
was considered ready, and
Hoffman, due to retire,
stepped aside.
Hoffman, however, having
no hobbies and not being
ready for the hammock, was-
n't quite ready to call it a
career. He worked out a
arrangement with the city
instead, so he took over as

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


Wilbur was truly 'top dog'


Every so often someone comes into
the lives of those in a community
who makes a positive impact, and
when that individual leaves it is truly a
loss.


That individual leaves an
impression on you that makes
your day just a tad bit
brighter, no matter what the
circumstances.
For the people who knew
him, Marc Wilbur was that
kind of individual.
We here at the News-Sun
grieve for the loss of Avon
Park Police Department Sgt.
Marc Wilbur, and our deepest
sympathies go out to his fam-
ily.
Passing away while on duty
Christmas morning, possibly
of a heart attack, Wilbur
leaves a hole in the lives of
many within the community,
and he will be sorely missed.
A transplant from
Massachusetts, Wilbur really
took root in Avon Park, where
he served for the past 12
years, doing his best to keep
safe those under his watch.
Being in law enforcement
can often be a thankless job,
and those who serve like
Wilbur have to put up with
the worst that a community
has to offer, but through all
that, he remained diligent in


Sgt. Marc Wilbur
his duty to protect and serve.
We at the News-Sun admire
and appreciate all Highlands
County law enforcement, and
Wilbur was a positive reflec-
tion every day of the dedica-
tion each officer gives.
Despite the bad elements he
sometimes faced, he put his
life on the line to make others
in the area safer, not asking
for gratitude, just doing his
job.
One of the greatest compli-
ments is to have the respect of


your peers, and according to
several who worked with him,
he always carried himself in a
professional manner, was
always there to lend a hand,
and quick to bring a laugh.
For the community, Wilbur
was accessible, and often just
a phone call away. Over his
career he often went out of his
way to make appearances and
raise awareness and going
above and beyond the call to
help in so many ways.
He assisted in training,
oversaw the K-9 program,
visited elementary schools
with his fellow K-9 officer,
and on occasion, even repre-
sented our community in
events by bringing home the
awards.
Chief Matt Doughney
recently praised Wilbur as
being an example for others in
local law enforcement to fol-
low by showing unwavering
dedication to the community.
We second that praise.
If you had a job to do, you
could rely on him being atten-
tive and courteous. If you
were in need, he was the kind
of officer you would want to
be there. If you were in trou-
ble, you knew he would be
professional.
For those who knew
Wilbur, at least a little bit, he
was just like one award stated
... he was truly top dog.

TODAY'S LETTERS


Traffic needs help
at new store
Editor:I
I have personally experienced the
traffic situation at the new Avon Park
Walmart. I believe that it is an accident
waiting to happen. Why is there no traf-
fic signal on U.S. 27 at either entrance?
I heard, via the rumor mill, as not
announced statement has been made
either through the corporate or local
office, that the state bureaucrats in
Department of Transportation are wait-
ing for a "feasibility study" to determine
whether a signal light is needed. I have
even heard also that the local office or
manager has offered to pay for the cost
if the state is unwilling to provide for it.
Here are some recent examples of the
hazards of either trying to get across,
turn or enter the facility: A woman in a
motorized chair went straight across all
four lanes to enter off of Palmetto. Later
the same day, a mother with her child in
her stroller crossed the four lanes. Other
pedestrians have been seen crossing all
four lanes.
The personal encounter that I experi-
enced on a recent Sunday traveling
south near the Ford dealer in the middle
lane on U.S. 27, I observed two cars -
both attempting to cross directly across
from each direction at the same time.
One managed to get across from my
right. The second one came from Lake
Isis and started to go across right in
front of me. Had I not honked and
slammed on my brakes we would have
collided and someone could have been
critically injured or killed as I was trav-
eling at the speed limit of 45 miles per
hour. Hello!
What will it take to get a light or at
least four-way stop signs and a patrol-


man to direct traffic at either Palmetto
or Lake Isis?

The end of American
democracy?
Editor:
Hillary Clinton paid about $36 mil-
lion for her senate seat, Obama's is on
the market for a mere $150,000. The
governor of Illinois is under indictment
and his Republican predecessor is in
jail.
Louisiana politics has long been cor-
rupt but has been replaced by Illinois.
The White House has been sold tohe
highest bidder, Minnesota politics is a
joke by an un-funny comedian, the
majority of college students are being
taught by radical leftists such as
Colorado's Ward Churchill and
Chicago's [University of] William Ayers
whose co-conspirator is now at
Columbia.
Our school children are now being
taught how to "pass the test" instead of
basic math, English (language use), sci-
ence, and social studies because it is
much easier to "teach to testing" than to
prepare to teach the academics for
which they were employed. Due to col-
lege preparation, they are probably
incompetent to teach the basics. If the
student is properly taught the basics,
they probably could pass the tests.
However, our incoming president wants
to make it easy for all students to get a
college education in order for us to
import more factory workers, mechan-
ics, salespeople, farm labor, service peo-
ple, and on and on in order to do the
work our citizens of the United States
now refuse to do. And so it goes.
More and more celebrities see Cuba


and Venezuela as the road to the future.
,Those who fail to study history are
bound to repeat it. No one has ever seen
a "destitute" dictator but the common
laborer is still the "bottom feeder" under
communism if he is allowed to feed at
all. Again, the reminder from the "U. S.
Army Training Manual No. 2000-25,
'1928. "Democracy is government of
the masses ... results in mobocracy.
Attitude toward property is communistic
negating property rights. Results in
demogogism, license, agitation, discon-
tent, and anarchy. "Hello - America -
How are You ?

Closing out the


year with a bang


This is a caution-
ary tale, the kind of
story that has a
happy ending, but
only just.
I tell it this last
day of the year
because my sister
and I almost ended
with it.
On Christmas
Day my sister, Gael
Engesser, and I were
driving south down
U.S. 27 minding our


Tu
Sti
Christen
Tufj


own business, on our way to'
a family celebration in
Wellington.
We'd arrived in Clewiston
right around 4:30 p.m. and
were moving with traffic,
coming up on the Clewiston
Inn.
I was driving in the left-
hand lane. There was a car to
our right, and another car
directly behind us. We were
all traveling at about 35 mph,
the speed limit for the area.
U.S. 27 at that point is five
lanes, two each south and
north and one turning lane in
between.
Without warning, about a
block ahead of us, a white
Chevy van, headed north,
drifted first into the left turn
only lane, and then into our
southbound lane, headed
directly at us.
The rest happened very
quickly.
While I have a distinct
memory of seeing the large,
round head of the driver
behind the wheel, what I
focused on were the head-
lights and grill of the van as
it continued to careen toward
us. Afterwards I realized I
couldn't even begin to recog-
nize the driver - he could
have been a cyclops and I
would have missed it because
I had stared at the approach-
ing van so intently. There is
something about life-and-
death danger, it turns out,
that fixes such moments in
the mind.
Meanwhile with the traffic,
I had no real wiggle room.
I tried to shift to the right
and darned if the van didn't
move with us, almost as if
the driver wanted to hit us.
The van, which had been
passing cars, was moving
fast.
Suddenly, as clearly as if
the words had been spoken
out loud, I thought "Disperse
the energy."
As quickly as I thought it,
I pulled the wheel and man-
aged to angle my car - a
worthy 1988 Oldsmobile 98
- relative to the van.
Almost simultaneously, the
van began to crash into us,
first hitting the left outside
mirror, then ripping into my
door with a tremendous
crashing, metal tearing
sound, and finally plowing
into the rear passenger door,
crushing the rear wheel well,
and sending us spinning
about 90 degrees.
Looking into the rearview
mirror all I could see were
pieces of cars flying in high


arcs in every direc-
tion, with so much
force the overall
effect looked like an
explosion.
And wouldn't you
know it - the driv- -
er of the van kept on
going, or at least
S tried. His left front
S wheel was as demol-
iff ished as my left rear
�oph/er wheel and the van
Tey only made it part of
a block, coming to a
stop in the parking lot of a
motel.
I have a memory of my
sister pulling me back into
the car because I couldn't get
the door open and tried to
climb through the driver's
window, which was open, to
chase after the van.
You'll have to take my
word that I normally don't do
things like that.
The Clewiston police and
emergency medical personnel
were on the scene almost
immediately. It was their
presence that helped me calm
down.
Meanwhile, up the street,
the driver of the van was
having his own trouble get-
ting out of his vehicle. Not,
mind you, because he was
hurt, or his door didn't work,
but because he was drunk.
Did I say drunk? He was
very drunk, and it turned out
very uninsured as well; and
driving on a Texas driver's
license with a Texas tag on
the van.
The police officer was
sympathetic, but not hopeful
regarding the odds of justice
being served. This was one
driver he thought would dis-
appear as soon as he was
released on bond, but at least
the driver went off to jail in
�handcuffs."'- . .. ,, *
Since-the crash I have.beenniji
as stiff as a board and can
hardly move, but my sister
and I are so grateful neither
of us was seriously hurt, so
grateful, in fact, to be alive,
that - and I know this is
going to sound crazy -
we're almost glad it hap-
pened.
And I was deeply moved
again when a neighbor,
.whose last name I don't even ni
know, gave me the keys to i'
an extra vehicle she had '
parked at her house, so I
could have transportation -
while figuring things out. ;
It is all too easy to get
caught up in the day-to-day '
of responsibilities, deadlines .,
and debts, and forget to M
notice the sun is shining or 0
you have friends. o*
My deepest new year's
wish for everyone is that itf
doesn't take tortured metal
and torque to remind you of
the beauty and grace of life.
Be careful out there, there
are fools in the world and
life can be short.

was always there when
someone needed him.
Marc passed doing exactly
what God placed him on
our planet to do, Protect

peace and always remem-
ber you will NEVER be
forgotten. You've taught
me and others well. We
love and miss you!

Marc I will miss you
everyday. Everywhere I
look I see something that
reminds me of you. We
were always laughing and
that is how I will remember
jou. Don't worry about
your son we will do right
by him. I love you, you
were my brother, my best
friend, and my mentor.
Rest easy my brother for
we have the watch. With
-ove.
- Detective
Jake A. Bratten

Thank you for helping
me in my transition of
moving to a new area. You
brought energy to your
profession, dept, family, co
Workers and friends on a
daily basis. I know my
father, Chief Mercurio, was
proud of the way you lead
and the willingness to do
what it took on a profes-
Sional level consistently!
Your son will be reminded
that his father was a
GREAT man, and worked
hard to provide for all he
touched! APPD did physi-
cally lose an officer, but
know that he will "always
be on duty." My dad was
very proud of you Marc.
- Matt Mercurio

SMarc, Words cannot
express how much you will
be missed. You were a
wealth of knowledge and
you never hesitated to
share it with anyone. Your
very presence made any
place you were the place
to be. I am so proud to
have called you friend and
it was a pleasure serving
by your side. Rest easy
brother. We will look after
your son and father.
- Officer Orlando
Esquibel & K-9 Hex

Marc, 1 am truly blessed
to have had the privilege
of knowing you and loving

,did. I will remember you
6nd love you for the rest
of my life. I still can't
believe you're gone. You
,vere the best thing that
ever happened to me, and
I will be forever grateful to
you for that. You truly left

be and I was proud to be
with someone like that.
Every time I look at
Aurelia I will smile and
remember how you told
me that if it weren't for
"that dog" we never would
have met. My heart aches
for you every second and I
am proud to have been a
part of you and Adam's
life, and I promise to be
there for him if he ever
needs anything as well as
your friends and family. I
love you and I hope you
know that when I said it, I
meant it just like you did.
- Ashley J. Smith

Words cannot express
the emptiness felt in the
hearts of the ones who
knew and loved you. You
were one of the reasons I
choose to become a law
enforcement Officer. Not
only did you help your fel-
low Officers and the com-
munity, you inspired them.
I will never forget the
words of encouragement
and knowledge you
shared. As Nathon said
the word HERO comes to
mind. Rest in Peace broth-
er. Your family is in my
prayers.
- Matt Cloud

For those of you who
did not know Sergeant
Marc Wilbur, he was the
type of man that would do
anything for you. He would
help you in any way he
could. His smile could light
up a room and his laugh-
ter still rings in my ears.
Marc was a great friend,
companion, leader, father,
and officer. I only wish to
express my sympathy to.
his son, brother, and
father at their time a grief.
Marc would have never
wanted to be called a
hero, but I can't think of a
better word for someone
who gave his all doing
what he loved. He will
truly be missed but never
forgotten. Our prays are
with you all, may God
bless you and keep you.
Thanks for everything
Marc.
- The Huftens

Marc you will be missed.
My thoughts and prayers
are with your family at this
difficult time as I know you
will be a guardian angel to
all of us who will continue
the fight down here in your
honor. God Bless you
Brother. Memories are for-
ever and you will always
be with me.
- W. F Schrader

held this afternoon

classes) and they knew who
Marc was," said HCSO K-9
handler William Gentry.
'That was the first word out
,of their mouths ... he was the
man you needed to go to if
you needed a good laugh or if
you needed a dog fixed.
That's pretty much what he
did with me."
Gentry knew Wilbur
*peripherally during his four
'years with the HCSO but
became "good friends" with
'him after taking on the duties
of K-9 handler within the past
year.
"He was a great friend.
He's always willing to help
.out, any time I had a problem
night or day he was there for
*me," Gentry said. "He would
do anything for a K-9 guy."
* Pratts enjoyed working
with Wilbur when he had the
chance and commended his


professionalism,
Lt. Kenny Johnson, a watch
commander for the HCSO
patrol division, said he could
rely on Wilbur if one of his K-
9 deputies was not available.
"We worked hand in hand,"
he said. "It's a tremendous
loss to the law enforcement
community to not have his
knowledge and training back-
ground."
This is the fourth death of a
law enforcement officer in
Highlands County since 1995.
On July 10, 1995 Capt. Bob
Hoffman Jr. and Inspector
James Rodgers were tracking
a suspect from the air with a
HCSO plane when it crashed
and killed both men on
impact.
Sgt. Nick Sottile of the
Florida Highway Patrol was
shot and killed during a traf-
fic stop just north of Lake
Placid on Jan. 12, 2007.

A drowning in.June in the dredge hole at City Pier beach in Sebring closed the area to
swimmers.

City Pier beach remains closed


Continued from page 2A
evaporation, and the hole is now near the
shoreline in shallow, wading water. The
concern is the sudden drop off will catch
non-swimmers unawares.
While an exception was made for the
Heartland Triathlon, city officials decided


to close the beach to swimming as a result.
It remains closed today.
Filling in the hole, which was created
when the city pier was put in, may prove to
be impractical and expensive. One hope is
that weather conditions change, bringing
rain and refilling the lake.


Pair of fatal private plane

crashes in '08 claim four lives


Continued from page 1A
Molina was still gaining
altitude when the bird
struck his propeller at
1,300 feet.
"Once he knew the blade
was shattered he shut his
engine down and began to
glide and was able to get
the lift underneath the
wings," said Sgt. Mitch
Moore of the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office.
"Based on the circum-
stances, he had a lot of
room. He did rather well."
The plane crash landed
on the south side of
Arbuckle Creek Road, 300
yards west of the landfill
entrance and about a half-
mile inside a cleared piece
of property, which is part of


the Sanford Hartt Ranch.
Mallonee walked away
with no reported injuries
while Molina suffered from
a "scraped nose," Moore
said.
The third crash took the
lives of James Weener
Wayner, 70, and James
Ricker, 46, on Dec. 13.
The single-engine
Aircoupe 415-D appeared
to disintegrate in midair
above Golf Hammock
Country Club in Sebring,
resident Mark McLean
said.
Others recalled the
engine making unusual
'noise~ before pieces began
to shear aff.
Wreckage was scattered
across the golf course,


landing on and next to
homes in the area.
The plane was on loan to
Wayner, the pilot, who was
taking Ricker on a pleasure
tour to thank him for some
volunteer work.
The airplane had taken
off from the Avon Park
Executive Airport and was
seen circling the country
club so Ricker, who lived&
there, could see his home.
The National
Transportation Safety
Board is investigating the
accident. Peter Knudson, a
spokesman for the NTSB,
said this can typically take
12 months.
Debris from the wreck
was transported to Virginia
for further investigation.

large challenges will be as a
result of growth or the lack
there of."
As the housing situation
took a turn for the worst over
the year, and tax revenues
slipped, the lack of growth
suddenly became the problem
Noethlich feared. He now
believes creating a budget for
the next fiscal year will be his
biggest challenge in 2009.
Hoffman is not the only
Sebring old hand who had
trouble tearing himself away
from work in 2008.
George Fox, long the city's
public works superintendent,
was another individual who
came back to work another
year after retiring. In fact,
Fox had even enjoyed a
farewell party before he
extended his stay.
Unable to postpone it any
longer, his retirement became
official in December.
Robert Miller was hired to
take Fox's place. Originally
from the San Diego, Calif.,
area he came to Sebring via
rural Virginia where he was
responsible for several coun-
ties' public works.

FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS


Sebring
Recreation Club


By Chapman Chamberlin


SEBRING - I am very
happy when Sebring players
win a tournament but one of
the winning teams this time
really made my day. This was
a national mixed and doubles
tournament at Avon Park on
Dec. 15-16. The winners from
Sebring are Larry and Carol
Weise, Peter and Margaret
White, Carl and Marilyn
Wile, Don Rohman and Ann
Eldredge. This list is just the
players and not necessarily
the teams nor in the order that
they finished.
Now why I am so thrilled
about this one? The reason is
that Marilyn Wile has just
been playing this year to
make Carl happy. This was
her first tournament and Don
Rohman asked her to be his
partner. Marilyn did not want
to because she would drag
Don down and he would lose.
Not so this time for they were
winners.
Wednesday for nickel shuf-
fle we find Norma Hardy,
Marion Reynen, Floyann
Frey, Nancy Brockelbank,
Margaret White, Jodine
Denny, Mary Hardy, Eva
Edwards, Martine Vermeire
and Rosella Dell are a few of
the ladies that made it. Ruth
Parker was a winner at the
Senior Games in shuffleboard
in Fort Myers on Dec. 13-14.
The double is a shot in
which a player scores both his
cue disc and his own target
disc that is lying on one of the
lines. Doubles have distinct
characteristics, depending on
whether the target disc lies on
a cross line or the centerline.
A cross line double usually
leaves the disc widely sepa-
rated in different scoring
areas. The cross line double
requires a head-on hit for its
completion and is easier of
the two shots to perform. The
centerline double can be
tricky, demanding more plan-
niihg and considerable more
skill in its execution. The per-
centage of success with either
kind is high enough to war-
rant of this shot whenever it
appears, unless some other
shot deserves priority.
Several books on shuffle-
board have been written and
all that is written in this arti-
cle comes from one of them.
Your very best bet is you tak-
ing lessons from John
Bushee. These lessons are
free to club members but you
do have to sign up for them.
Avon Park tournament on
Dec. 18-20 finds a few
Sebring Club members among
the winners. Ruth Tate, Gene
Wolf and Walcott Davis were
the pro winners from our
club. Amateurs find Ruth
Parker, Bill Schaeffer, Carl
Wile, Sharon and Don
Rohman and Sonny Paterson
among the winners.
Line dancers have outdone
themselves with a Christmas
party on Dec. 17. I went into
the hall that afternoon and the
tables were in place with nice
tablecloths. The settings made
me come back and check out
this party. This group does
everything the way they
should be done. By things that
you see I bet they dance the
same way and that is correct.


News-Sun * Wednesday, December 31, 2008


Have you still not given us a
try? You have time to visit us
before the new year starts.
Come and dance with us and
you may want to dance 2009
with us.
Ed Straub is not one to del-
egate everything that needs
doing. He tends the desk,
washes windows, paints parts
of the building. In his spare
time plays cards, table tennis
and shuffleboard. When not
doing this, he's out trying to
find sponsors for the tourna-
ments and sells advertising
for our directory. Oh yes and
the yard sale, shaping up at
this time. He is looking for a
way in which to enlarge shuf-
fleboard and ping-pong.
More work for John Bushee
with the courts and maintain-
ing the building as well as the
grounds. If we want shuffle-
board to grow in Sebring, we
should want to help John.
Many hands make light work,
so tell John what you will do
to help him.
Are you ready for the
Orange Blossom, Jan. 5-7,
this year? What are you plan-
ning to do to help? Let some-
body know how you will help.
Visit us at 333 Pomegranate
Ave., (behind the Sebring
Police Station), where good
things happen.

'Legger Grabs Press Camera
Grand Jury Witness Objects to Filming
By LIT ROPER
An angry 6-foot-plus former bootlegger
grabbed a Tribune photographer's camera this
morning in a Federal Building corridor while
waiting to testify before the federal grand jury.

But massive Bill Bennett. of Fort Gibson, a
34-year-old World War II hero whose picture just
had been snapped. handed back the camera to Lee
Gillette, the photographer when Deputy U.S.
Marshal Preston Warren intervened.

Raising strenuous
objections to publishing of
his picture, Bennett insist-
ed upon "talking to the
marshal." Hubert Marlow,
an assistant U.S. attorney
accompanied Bennett to
Marshal James Y. Victor's
office.

The former bootleg-
ger returned soon to the wit-
ness room, but the matter
apparently was not closed.
When the grand jury
recessed at noon, Bennett, a ,
.-U.S. Atty. B. Hayden
SCrawford. Marlow. James T.
Rogers, Alcohol Tax Unit
special investigator, and
Fred Hall, ATU chief, went
*directly to the chambers of
U.S. District Judge Royce
H. Savage. presumably to discuss the corridor
incident.
Judge Savage has given news photogra-
phers permission to shoot pictures in Federal
Building halls, but has banned shots in offices.
Bennett's former business as a Fort Gibson
wholesaler reportedly was as large commercially
as he is physically: he held one of only two feder-
al wholesale liquor tax stamps issued last year.

Seldom charged in county court, he
recently was tried in Federal Court at
Muskogee, found guilty of violating U.S. liquor
laws and sentenced to a year. He now is free
pending appeal.

He surrendered his liquor stamp to the
Wagoner County attorney last spring and now is

Rogers and Hall, nad joined
Bennett, Warren, Gillette.
Marlow and a Tribune
reporter in the hall.
"I think we'd better go
see the marshal right now
about taking pictures of
these witnesses," Rogers
broke in.
-Marlow yielded to
Bennett's protests and the
two went to see Marshal
Victor.

The jurors then called
Mrs. Jessie Stockton of
Sapulpa as a substitute
witness to fill in the time
scheduled for Bennett's
appearance. He still had
not testified at the noon
recess.

and cowboy boots. moved toward him.

snarled Bennett. grabbing the camera.
As he and the photographer stood holding
the camera. Warren, who is on duty in the witness
room, stepped to the corridor door.

Mrs. Stockton. a former Creek County
liquor dealer, was the morning's third witness.
She was preceded by Roy Doty, Sapulpa
liquor dealer, and his attractive, stylishly dressed
blonde wife.
Later in the morning, Doty's brother
George., \ho said he was a farmer, appeared to
await a jury call. With George and also slated to
testify was his equally attractive and well-dressed
brunette wife.
The fourth person to be heard today was
Jack Turner, former operator of Jack's Place, near
Bristow. He was sentenced to 30 days in Federal
Court here early this year for selling liquor with-
out a tax stamp.
Waiting to be heard this afternoon besides
Bennett was Kenneth Smith of Sapulpa, who said
he was a laborer.

Wrapping

things up

for '08
To borrow, and recreate,
a phrase from REM, it's the
end of the year as we know
it and I guess I feel fine.
That's more than can be
said for a few coaches and
teams out there, who will
look back on '08 as a year
that didn't leave them feel-
ing all too good.
At least I think I figured
out the problem with the
Detroit Lions, who may
finally have gotten out
from under the grasp of
former hapless leader Matt
Millen.
As it turns out, Millen
seemed so enamored of the
first letter of his last name,
that every coach he hired
during his tumultuous
tenure had a last name
starting with the letter M.
From Marty Morhinweg
(went with the whole she-
bang of the double M
there) to Steve Mariucci
and finally Rod Marinelli.
Actually, Morhinweg
replaced Gary Moeller, who
went 4-3, stretching the M
debacle a tad farther.
The latter three M's went
a combined 30-93 and
checking back over the his-
tory, having an M as a
coach isn't a good thing.
In the history of the
Super Bowl, there have
been four coaches with a
last name starting with that
letter, with only John
Madden having won one -
the rest went 0-3.
Red Miller lost as the
coach of the Broncos in
Super Bow I XII. Ra\
Maladasi as the head man
of the Los Angeles Rams in
Super Bowl XI\ and Mike

Martz with the St. Louis

I think, given this recent
track record and a look at
history, the Lions path is
clear.
Although it doesn't seem
they quite get it yet, as they
have advanced within the
organization a new general
manager -.Martin Mayhew.
But it was a pretty inter-
esting year, on the whole.
Everybody outside of
New England was thrilled
when the Patriots effort
toward an undefeated sea-
son was done away with by
Eli Manning, David Tyree
and the Giants.
Who couldn't enjoy the
magical run that the for-
merly hapless Tampa Bay
Rays put on this past base-
ball season.
Improvement could be
expected, but making it to
the World Series, for crying
out loud, was so over the
top that even a 4-1 loss in
said series was kind of
beside the point.

Avon Park boys go 1-1 in



KSA Tournament

STop Kentucky school after


... giving Gulliver a scare

Cleteland Nobles and the Red Devils eened their record in the
KSA Christmas Tournament at Disney. beating Jackson Counts of
Kenruck. Monday after gi% ing Miami's highly raied Gulliver Prep
a %erN real scare on Saturday


By ED BALDRIDGE.
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
The Avon Park boys bas-
ketball team had mixed
results this weekend, losing
one and winning one, as they
play at Disney's Wide World
of Sports in Orlando in the
KSA Christmas Tournament.
Defeating the Jackson
County Generals 64-52 hand-,
ily on Monday, the Red
Devils even gave the mighty
Gulliver Prep a run for their
money, and brought their
overall record to 8-5-0 for the
season.
The 49-43 loss to the
state's eighth-ranked Gulliver
Prep School from Miami on
Saturday was received well
by head coach Luther
Clemons.
A change in the schedule
postponed the game against
Jackson County, Kentucky,
and put the Red Devils up
against some stiffer competi-
tion for their first game of the
tournament, but that didn't
really upset Clemons. :
"We had to make some
changes to the line-up to get
some fresh guys in there, but
overall I was happy with our
play. We were down by six
points after the first quarter,
but we led by five points
when we went to the locker
room at half-time. Our last-
half play was as good as it
gets. we kept the scoring
do%% n, but just could not seem
to get the edge. We lost by six
points. but that is against a


team ranked eighth in the
state. I don't feel bad about
that," Clemons said in a
phone interview on Monday,
while on his way back to
Orlando for the next game.
According to Clemons,
Xavier Caldwell led the scor-
ing during the game against
Gulliver Prep with 13 points.
"Xavier had a good game,
and I am happy with his
play," Clemons said.
Check the Friday issue of
the News-Sun for the rest of
the Red Devil tournament
run.


Xavier Caldwell paced the
Avon Park attack Saturday,
scoring 13 points in the Red
Devils' near-upset -in at
Disney.

Lady Streaks split


at Belleview


By DAN HOEHNE
danie.l.hoehnie@nc .ssun.com
The post Christmas sea-
son began on a bright not
for the Lady Streaks as they
traveled up toward Ocala
for the Belleview Christmas
Tournament and got an
opening win Saturday over
North Marion, 43-26.
But the holiday spirit was
short-lived as the team
came up short in a defensive
battle Monday, falling to
Deltona by a 35-29 score.
"It was about the same
margin the whole game,"
head coach Mike Lee said.
"To hold a team to 35 points
shows good defense on our
part, but we just couldn't
get going offensively."
Sebring controlled the
boards, with Hanna Shoop
corralling 12 rebounds and
Shannon Williams eight, but
the scoring %was just too
tough to come by.

McCullors headed the point

Williams' six apiece.
' "It's been a great tourna-
ment," Lee said. "It's been
run %ery well and the com-
petition is great. We've been
competitive throughout and
it's good to have this experi-
ence heading into the second
half of the season."
In the Saturday win, the
defense was also solid and
the offense was able to get
in gear with Shoop leading
the way with 12 points and
Williams and Maximne
Copely added 10 and six,
respectively.
The team was at it again
Tuesday, facing Orlando

their tournament run.

Remembering '08


Continued from 1C
beginning of some very
tough times.
An aptly named Bolt
became the fastest man on
the planet and the long-suf-
fering, foul-mouthed Philly
faithful were rewarded with
a World Series win for the
first time in 28 years.
Meanwhile, the Cubs
went past the 100-year
mark without a Fall Classic
finale, the Arena League
might be finished and the
WNBA has seen it's charter
championship team fold,


perhaps marking the demise
of that league as well.
Eight Belles didn't make
it through '08, and we lost
other legends from the
sporting world, including
Jim McKay, Sammy Baugh,
Gene Upshaw, Killer
Kowalski, Pete Newell,
Don Haskins, Sir Edmund
Hillary, Johnny Podres,
Darrell Garretson, Skip
Caray and Bobby Fischer -
among many others that
will be remembered for
their contributions.


There were great
moments, unifying events
and tragic losses.
With perhaps the most
memorable story being the
whole Roger Clemens situ-
ation and the fall from
grace we all witnessed
before our eyes.
Wait, was that during this
past year?
I misremember.

Editor of the News-Sun. He can
