A Brief History Of


The Inauguration

Most of Tuesday's events will be based

on tradition, not the Constitution


By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING The
Constitution of the United
States of America is an elo-
quent, detailed document.


'I do
solemnly
swear (or
affirm) that
I will
faithfully
execute the
office of
President of
the United
States, and
will to the
best of my
ability,
preserve,
protect, and
defend the
Constitution
of the
United
States."

Presidential
oath of office


It outlines
a president's
duties and
provides, in
Article II,
section 1, the
35-word
oath of
office every
president has
uttered since
George
Washington:
"I do solem-
nly swear (or
affirm) that I
will faithful-
ly execute
the office of
President of
the United
States, and
will to the
best of my
ability, pre-
serve, pro-
tect, and
defend the


constitution of the United
States."
The 'takir~gof the oath of
office is the' single constitu-
tional requirement on inau-
guration day. Every other
event is based on traditional


precedent.
Most of
the prece-
dent comes
to us from
George Wash-
ington by 7
virtue of the
fact that he
was the first,
and most people
think he set a good
example "noble yes, royal
never," is how one historian
has described Washington's
style. Following presidents
looked to him as a role
model.

Local residents ready to

witness history in Washington

and her sister Jessica Lewis are packed and excited to go to Washington D.C. for the
inauguration of Barack Obama.


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING Every so often an event
happens that is so historic that the whole
world stops the hustle for a briefest of
moments to listen.
That will happen for this generation on
Tuesday when President-elect Barack
Obama will be sworn in as the 44th
President of the United States.
Some Highlands County residents are
making the pilgrimage to be there on that
hopeful day.
"I am so excited to be a part of this," said
Rasheeda Moorer, an Avon Park resident
who will make the bus trip.
A local NAACP member and former sec-
retary of that organization, Moorer and her


sister Jessica Lewis are going to get as close
as they can to the event.
"I never thought I would see it in my life-
time, an Afro-American elected President,"
Moorer said. "This is historic, and we are a
part of that. We are going to get as close as
we can get to the inauguration. I have never
been to an inauguration before, but this is a
very big deal for everyone."
Traveling with Moorer is Pat Henderson,
another volunteer worker for the Obama
election, but someone with a bit more per-
spective and history.
"When I was 10 or 11, my grandmother
made all her grandchildren load up on the
bus going to Washington to hear Martin

Circuit


City pulls


the plug
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING The local
Sebring Circuit City will be
one of 567 stores owned by the
electronics retaier to be closed
when the company ceases
operations.
"This is the only possible
path for our company," said
James .A. Marcum, the acting
chief executive, in a statement.
"We are extremely disappoint-
ed by this outcome."
Circuit City Stores Inc. is the
nation's second-biggest con-
sumer electronics retailer. It
said Friday it had run out of
options and will liquidate all of
its U.S. stores.
During a Friday afternoon
visit to the store by the News-
Sun, store.. manager Sean
Connolly was seen talking on a
cell phone, pacing around the
outside of the store.
He had just heard the news
and was about to head into a
corporate conference call, he
said, adding that he didn't
know anything specific about
the Sebring store yet.
A Circuit City employee
directed inquires to the compa-
ny's corporate media relations
department, but the line was
overrun by media calls about
the shutdown.The store's clos-
ing will put 30-40 people out of
work.
"We saw the signs when we
were working here," cashier
Melita Simplice said Friday
shortly after the news broke.
She mentioned an abysmal
Black Friday and falling stock
prices, which hit $.16 a share
Friday before tanking to $.03
after the liquidation was
announced. Earlier in 2008
stock prices were as high as
$52.75 a share.
For Simplice, the position
was a temporary way to pay
bills until finishing college -
but graduation is still a year
away.
"This was my way of keep-
ing my head above water while
I go to school," the Fort
Lauderdale native said. "It took
me four months to get a job in
Sebring. Imagine what it will

Inauguration
firsts
Here are some odd-
ball facts about past
presidential inaugura-
tions:

George Washing-
ton's second inaugural
speech, at 135 words,
was the shortest on
record. Only members
of Congress heard the
address.
The third presi-
dent, Thomas
Jefferson, was the first
president inaugurated
in Washington D.C. He
walked to'the ceremo-
ny at the Senate from
his boarding house,
and walked back again
when it was over.
The fifth presi-
dent James Monroe,
was the first to have
his inaugural speech-
printed in newspapers.
The seventh
president, John Quincy
Adams, son of the
second president John
Adams, was the first to
wear long pants his
inauguration. Prior to
that, presidents wore
satin breeches that
stopped at the knee.
Ninth president
William Henry
Harrison, gave the
longest inaugural

SHS choir

trying to get to

Carnegie Hall
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Every couple
of years the Sebring High
School Varsity Choir has an
opportunity to audition to
become part of the National
Honor Choir, a group made up
of choirs from all over the
country who come together
and perform a concert at the
famous Carnegie Hall in New'
York City.
The trip will take place in
March and as always, the stu-
dents will get to work with
premier artists, conductors
and composers.
The choir, which is made
up of juniors and seniors, is
having difficulty this year
raising money toward the
five-day trip. Unfortunately,
at the same time, more fami-
lies than usual are having
trouble coming up with the
funds, New York being as
expensive as it is.
The trip will cost $1,500
per student, plus food.'
However, it will be the trip
of a lifetime.
Not only will the students
be staying in a hotel next to
the World Trade Center site,
they will be taken to the major
museums, get to see the most
important sights, and be
exposed to top flight musical
instruction.
The young artists have
already held a multitude of
fundraisers, including car
washes, with more in store.
They hope people will
mark Saturday, Jan. 31 on
their calendars, and make a
point of being at Highlands
Hammock State Parkiat 8 a.m.
for a fundraising .-5-K run
and/or walk.
All it will cost to pre-regis-'
ter is $20; $25 for runners
who wait and register at the
time of the race. For students,
the cost to enter is only $15.
Leashed dogs are welcome,
as are parents with baby
strollers in tow. The idea is to
get a little fresh air for a good
cause.

McIntyre at 385-5036. Or call

In 1818, General
Andrew Jackson led the
first engagement against
the Seminoles, following
his popular victory against
the British in New Orleans
during the War of 1812. At


that time, Florida was
Spanish territory, inhabit-
ed partly by Seminoles
who had been driven out of
their Alabama homeland
and who were raiding U.S.
settlements in retaliation.
The First Seminole War
dealt the tribe a punishing

Link between convicted

felon and Friday home

invasions investigated


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING ,- A home
invasion call to the
Highlands County Sheriffs
Office Friday evening is still
under investigation, with one
possible suspect in custody.
Adam Wallace, 18,
Sebring, was arrested for
possession of a firearm by a
convicted felon and fleeing
from law enforcement.
He was seen by K-9
Deputy Luis Pratts riding a
bicycle with a rifle over the
handlebars, said Lt. Kenny
Johnson of the HCSO.
The chase ended at 8:30
p.m., nearly two hours after
the home invasion was
reported.
"Three black males wear-
ing all black attempted to
make entry to 208 Montego
(Dr.) when two victims were
in the back porch area and
fled on foot," Johnson said,
reading from the incident
report. "One of the suspects
was witnessed as carrying a
long rifle."
Minutes later a call from
216 Montego Dr. reported the
same suspects, dressed in all
black, demanding money.


Pratts took his K-9 on a
track all they way to
Kenilworth Boulevard and
Industrial Way when he lost
the scent. No suspects were
seen although shoe impres-
sions were taken for evi-
dence.
After clearing the scene at
Montego Drive, Pratts was
heading west on EO Douglas
Avenue and
spotted the
man on the
bike, later
identified as
Wallace.
Wallace
Wallace was wearing
dark clothing
and during the course of a
chase officials recovered a
rifle.
Due to the similarities in
the reported suspects and
Wallace, the Criminal.
Investigations Unit was
called out to the scene and
has taken over the case.
Anyone with additional
information can contact Lt.
Tim Lethbridge of the

EDITORIAL & OPINION


News-Sun Sunday, January 18, 2009


TODAY'S EDITORIAL

America's genius

he United States of America is
,respected and admired for many
reasons by people around the


world.
Tuesday's inaugural cere-
mony and the swearing in of
the nation's 44th president
are two of the most impor-
tant.
Important in the sense that
once again power will have
passed from one national
political party to another
without violence or last-
minute skullduggery.
In this country we tend to
underestimate the wonder of
over 230 years of continuous
power exchanges, especially
exchanges that involved
wildly different philosophies
- like Richard Nixon fol-
lowing, Lyndon Baines
Johnson, or Franklin Delano
Roosevelt following Herbert
Hoover.
There are countless exam-
ples of men and women
throughout history in other
countries, who at the last
moment, when they had to
hand over power and accept
retirement, were unable to do
so.
Too many of these individ-
uals, by resisting history,
brought pain and suffering, in
some cases ruin, to their
countries.
One only has to think of
Robert Mugabe and


Zimbabwe's current state of
despair to understand how
terrible the consequences can
be.
And it's not as if we
haven't had our own
moments of intense strain,
division and danger.
We fought, a terrible,
bloody war among ourselves
to settle the question after all.
So the fact that America
has existed as long as it has,
surviving extremes from both
the left and the right, has
made it an object of hope and
set a standard of excellence.
We will do well to remem-
ber this in the months ahead
- especially those of us who
did not vote for Barack
Obama, or the Democratic
platform.
This nation is much bigger
than the sum of its parts. And
while we often disagree on
how to achieve a goal, most
Americans are united in the
beliefs of fairness, opportuni-
ty and personal responsibili-
ty.
If the president does well,
the nation does well; if the
nation does well, we do well
as individuals.
The time has come to work
together.

Remembering two unsung heroes


We like heroes. At least I
think we do. While the defi-
nition of "hero" may vary
from person to person, the
fact is we admire people
who stand out.
Medals are given to sol-
diers who perform above and
beyond the call of duty.
Honors are piled on to peo-
ple who give great service to
their country. We look at
people who work hard and
tirelessly in horrific circum-
stances and call them heroic.
This year 2009 we lost
two heroes. You may never
have heard of them. They
didn't run for office. They
weren't television or movie,
stars. They did serve in the
military, but a long time ago.
They were rarely if ever
cited in any newspaper.
But they were heroes.
Bob Parnett and Ron
"Doc" Horton were members
of my congregation, along
with their wives. You've
heard that in any organiza-
tion that 20 percent of the
people do 90-percent of the
work? Bob and Doc were in
that 20 percent without.ques-
tion.
Neither man sought to be
"special." They did what so
many do; they went to work
and supported their families.
They raised their children
and doted over their.grand-
children. You would see
them when the church met,
helping to serve the Lord's
Supper or doing something
else that needed to be done.


Laura's
Look
Laura Ware

They, along with their
wives and others, welcomed
a doctor, his wife, and their
two rambunctious sons to the
congregation in 1995. And
they loved us with all they
had.
Bob and his wife were
members of a group called
Sojourners a group of vol-
unteers that provided help of
both physical and spiritual
nature to congregations
throughout the Upited States.
At a time when most men
kick back and relax, Bob
never stopped doing the
Lord's work. I have heard he
could play a mean game of
golf, though.
Doc will always hold a
special place in my heart.
First, he was often in the
foyer greeting people as they
walked in. He always had a
smile for us and a hug for
me. He was one of the
friendliest men I know.
But the reason I will for-
ever be grateful to this man
can be summed up in one
word: James.
When we first moved
here, James was young and
'already a strong-willed
child. (That's probably
understating it: James freely
admits he was not an angel).
He was a handful and a
worry to me. And here we


were, in a new place with no
family in town.
Doc became a surrogate
grandfather to James. One
time he heard James talk
back to me after service and
he pulled my son aside and
gave him a stern talking to.
He was always asking about
James even after he left for
college.
Doc and Bob leave wives
they loved dearly. Wives
they allowed to serve the
Lord in, their own way with-
out a word of complaint or -
telling them to not spend so
much time out. Both. women
are dear friends of mine -
and my tears are for them,
not for their husbands, who'
are in a far better place now.
Perhaps you think that
"hero" is not a title for men'
like Bob and Doc men who
loved God, their families,
and their neighbors. Men
who spent their lives doing-
the best they could to make
the world around them a lit-
tle bit better.
You would be wrong.
Given the role models out
there today, we need to
uphold men like Doc and
Bob all the more we need-
more like them, not less.
And if my poor little col-
umn causes one manmto try
to be like them, then I'll be
satisfied.

Looking at some inauguration day speech hits and misses


Barack
Obama's inau-
gural address on
Jan. 20 is await-
ed with great
anticipation by
his millions of
fans in and out
of the media. To
In The get some
In T e answers about
News the importance
S ill of past inaugural
Steigedre ld g addresses and
some predictions
about the next one, I telephoned
Jerry Shuster, a political communi-
cations expert at the University of
Pittsburgh, who specializes in pres-
idential rhetoric.

Q: Is Barack Obama's inaugu-
ral address guaranteed to be his-
toric, no matter what he says?
A: In some limited extent, yes.
But by and large, inaugural
addresses are not memorable and
are historical only in the sense that
some presidential anthologies are
going to contain the speech. But in
Obama's case it likely will be his-
toric.

Q: Are inaugural addresses
good predictors of a president's
future policies and accomplish-
ments?
A: In general, they are pretty
much more ceremonial than any-
thing else. More often than not,
presidential inaugural addresses are
a superficial indication and I
use that word "superficial" precise-
ly because superficial is exactly
what most of them are except
about the four best of them.
Probably Obama's will be No. 5 in
the mix.

Q: What are your top four
inaugural addresses and why are
they at the top?
A: Well, because they did pre-


cisely what you have asked they
predicted the outcomes or the pos-
sible effectiveness of the new pres-
ident and his proposed polices. In
the case of Washington's, his
address was important because it
was the first and was the one that
lent itself to the direction of the
nation at that time; and of course,
Lincoln's inaugural address (1861),
because it set the tone and pattern
for the direction of the nation at a
time much similar to ours. The
nation was in utter turmoil and he
had to attempt to accomplish so
much in such little time. Lincoln
had to as Obama's has also said
a number of times hit the
ground running.

Q: I presume FDR's 1933
speech and ...
A: ... exactly on target ...
Q: ... and maybe Reagan's
1981 speech would be the other
two in your top four?
A: Actually not John
Fitzgerald Kennedy's in 1961. I
don't know that Reagan's inaugural
addresses either of them -
were memorable. They were good
speeches but not memorable to the
extent that they were great predic-
tors of what was to come.

Q: I just read FDR's inaugural
of 1933 and I was kind of
shocked by what he said. He said
if Congress wouldn't cooperate
with the White House to end
"this national emergency," he'd
take it upon himself to assume
almost war-like powers to do it
himself.
A: He predicted one other step in
between, which is critical. He was
one of the first of the modern pres-
idents to use one of the great tech-
niques that a president has at his
disposal, whether it is an inaugural
address or other important address-
es: He said, "OK, if you're not
going to cooperate, here's what I

over your head and go directly to
the electorate as my primary audi-
ence and have them put the pres-
sure on you to achieve the goal that
I want. It worked for him, obvious-
ly.

Q: In terms of great rhetoric,
who's your top pick?
A: John Kennedy, for an inaugu-
ral address. But he's not necessari-
ly the greatest rhetorician in terms
of presidential rhetoric. Clearly,
Ronald Reagan ranks near the very
top. First of all, he wasn't identi-
fied as "The Great Communicator"
for no reason at all. He was able to
do one of the things that every pre-
senter has to do if you are going to
be a success and that's to do a very
sophisticated audience analysis and
then figure out who it was that was
going to be his primary audience
and who it was that was going to
be his secondary audience. Every


president will do that. In R
case, he wanted Russia to ki

early 1980s, as the Evil Emn

Volunteer
drivers needed
for DAV
transport van
By MARY MARGARET
STAIK
Special to the News-Suni
SEBRING The VA
Medical Center in Bay Pines
issued the local unit of the
Disabled American Veterans
two transport vans to be driv-
en by volunteers to take vet-
erans who are medically
unable to drive to their Bay
Pines appointments.
The two vans are in need
of volunteer drivers.
Currently only one van is
being utilized, one day per
week. It leaves from the VA
Community Based Outpatient
Veterans Clinic near
Highlands Boulevard in
Sebring at 5 a.m. Tuesdays,
returning in the afternoon
before 5 p.m.
In order to serve as a driv-
er, the Volunteer Services of
Bay Pines must certify the
volunteer. The prospective
driver will undergo a medical
physical and a driving test.
According, to Art Dreyer,
local. coordinator for the
DAV Tranisport service, the
more .volunteers available to
drive the vans, the fewer trips
eachliriver will need to make
during the month. Dreyer
wouId like t t see the trans-
port' service increase to sev-

haps ad i:-,l "Myers
Specialty Clinic route to the
list. This will only be possi-
ble with the addition of more
volunteers.
The mission of the DAV
transport service is to serve
those who have served.
According to Dreyer, you do
not have to be a veteran to be
a volunteer. Contact Dreyer
at 446-2720.

Inauguration loaded with tradition


Continued from page 1A
For example, because
Washington is said to have
added the phrase "so help me
God," after taking his oath,
most presidents add that
phrase too.
And because Washington
gave an address after he was
sworn in, presidents now
give inaugural speeches.
Because Washington had a
crowd following him when
he arrived in New York City
for his first inauguration,
there are parades to celebrate
each new president.
But Washington is hardly
the only president to influ-
ence how presidents are
sworn in. ,
Both Pam Hansen, chair of
the social and behavioral sci-
ence department at South
Florida Community College,
and Dr. Marcy Everest, a pro-
fessor of political science
there, point to Andrew
Jackson as an important
influence at a time with par-
allels to today.
In 1825 Jackson ran
against John Quincy Adams
and won the popular vote.
However, the electors to the
electoral college voted
Adams into the presidency.
In the intervening years
Congress passed laws to keep,
that kind of thing from hap-
pening again by extending
suffrage to most white males,
and letting voters directly
choose electors, instead of
having the state legislatures
do so.
The result was the largest
increase in voters to that
date, with the number voting
in 1829 almost twice that of
1825.
The excitement of these
first-time voters, many of
them from the hard-edged
wilderness, at seeing a direct
result for their efforts led to
more of them turning up for
'the inauguration 'than had
ever turned up before.
Prior to this, inaugurations
were quiet, almost family
affairs, insider events and
formal, but that was ready to
change.
For example, John Q.
Adams was the first president
to wear long pants to his
inauguration, meaning the
passing of the founding
father's generation and the
arrival of a broader democra-
cy.
Washington D.C. was still
a small, provincial city at the


time Jackson's inaugural and
its services were quickly and
completely overwhelmed.
Many of the men who came
to celebrate ended up sleep-
ing outdoors.
Their high spirits also
nearly burned down the
White House almost liter-
ally during the three-day
party that followed Jackson's
inaugural ceremony.
This was well before the
Secret Service, or even pro-
fessional police, and there
were so many celebrants, and
so many of them were drunk,
that the festivities soon got
out of hand. At one point,
Jackson needed the help of
friends to flee the White
House to avoid being crushed
by the joyful crowd.
Different accounts of the
inaugural party all agree
White House servants finally
lured guests outside the over-
crowded and trashed rooms
by carrying trays of food
among the unruly guests and
then passing them out of the
windows so people followed
them out doors.
Everest said that John Q.
Adams went so far as to say
the Jackson inaugural was,
"the howl of raving democra-
cy."
But even Jackson's inaugu-
ration didn't differ markedly
in what was done or said
from Washington's.
It wasn't until the United
States emerged from World
War II as a super power and
the president came to be seen
as the leader of the free
world, Hansen and Everest
agree, that the inauguration
ceremony grew substantially
in stature and importance to
what we know today.
"The entire world will
watch this inauguration,"
Everest said. "And so we
have to be aware as we pres-
ent an image, our ideas and
values. Barack Obama's
speech isn't just a message to
the country, but. to the
world."
She pointed out another
major shift.
Since the media age,
Everest said, most Americans
have been exposed to most
inaugural speeches, and this
has created familiarity with
the form. There is so much
more information available
than ever before, Everset
said, that today's Americans
could become the best
informed society the world


has known if they wanted to
achieve that goal.
In the meantime, Obama
has incorporated tradition
into his ceremony plans, with
special. recognition for
Abraham Lincoln.
Lincoln too came to power
in tumultuous times. In fact,
with the South already in the
process of seceding, the fear
of assassination was such
that prior to his inauguration
Lincoln was smuggled into
Washington D.C. wearing a
disguise.
Obama's arrival in the city,
by the same railroad
entrance, will be a celebra-
tion instead.
By 10 a.m. on Tuesday,
Obama, Joseph Biden and
other dignitaries will be in
place at the Capital Building
surrounded by special guests
from the civil rights move-
ment era.
The gathering will be- on.
the west side of the building,
a tradition begun by Ronald
Reagan, who wanted to look
out toward California at his
inaugural.
After music and a short
welcome address by
California Senator Dianne
Feinstein, an invocation by
Pastor Rick Warren, and a
song by Aretha Franklin,
Joseph Biden will be sworn
in as vice-president by
Supreme Court Justice John
Paul Stevens at 11:30 a.m.
After more music, Obama
will be sworn in as president
at noon by Chief Supreme
Court Justice John Roberts,
using Lincoln's inaugural
Bible.
Obama will then deliver
his inaugural speech.
That will be followed by
Elizabeth Alexander, a poet
and professor at Yale
University, reading one of
her works for the occasion.
Alexander is only the fourth
poet to read at an inaugural,
the last being Miller
Williams at Bill Clinton's
second inauguration in 1997.
The benediction will be
delivered by thie Reverend
Joseph Lowery. That will be
followed *by the National
Anthem.
At 1 p.m. President Obama
will have lunch with
Congressional leaders.
At 2 p.m. he will walk
from Congress to the White
House.
There will be 10 different
balls that evening.


A look at some inauguration firsts

speech in 1841. At a reported 8,445
words it took him almost two hours to
deliver. Unfortunately, the weather was
terrible that day, with an ice storm.
Harrison caught a chill, which turned into
pneumonia and he was dead within a
month. He was the first president to die
in office.
Telegraph inventor Samuel Morse
was sitting near 11th president James.
Polk in 1845, tapping out the events of
the inauguration over his telegraph as
they happened.
The inauguration of James
Buchanan, the 15th president in 1857,
was the first to be photographed.
At his second inauguration in 1865,
Abraham Lincoln shook over 6,000
hands, despite fears of a possible
assassination attempt.
It was Grover Cleveland, the 22nd
and 24th president, who stopped the tra-
dition of the White House open house
that was started at Jefferson's second
inaugural. There were simply too many
people for it to be safe. Instead, a presi-
dential review from a decorated stand
was substituted, adding to the impor-
tance of the parade.
The inauguration of William
McKinley, the 25th president, in 1897,
was the first to be captured on movie
news reel film.
Twenty-ninth president Warren G.
Harding's inauguration in 1921 was the

vised.

first ever broadcast over loudspeakers.
Thirtieth president Calvin
Coolidge's inauguration in 1923 (at the
death of Warren G. Harding) was the
first broadcast over radio. Coolidge's
father, a respected justice of the peace
in Vermont, administered the oath.
The 1949 inauguration of Harry S.
Truman, the 33rd president, was the first
to be televised.
The 1997 inauguration of Bill
Clinton, the 42nd president, was the first
to be broadcast in real time on the
Internet.

The Circuit City in Sebring will be one of 567 stores closing as the the company liqui-
dates its assets, it was announced Friday.


Circuit City liquidating all stores

take now."
She will be one of an esti-
mated 30,000 Circuit City
workers to join the ranks of
the unemployed.
Nobody was available to
discuss. when the Sebring
store would close for business
or any potential liquidation
sales open to the public, and
Connolly said he was unsure
even after the meeting with
his district manager in Tampa.
"They didn't have any
answers," he said.
He said the only informa-
tion about stores staying open
he saw on the Internet, plac-
ing it between two and three
months.
Circuit City said in court
papers it has appointed Great
American Group LLC,
Hudson Capital Partners
LLC, SB Capital Group LLC
and Tiger Capital Group LLC
as liquidators.
"It's up to the liquidator
company what promotions
they'll be running," he said


when asked if any sales were
scheduled.
Elizebath Wilson, who has
lived in the county since the
'80s, is worried about the loss
of jobs at a time where unem-
ployment in the county is so
high.
"It's so many people for a
small town to be out of
work," she said. "It's really
sad. (Circuit City) was an
opportunity for our young
people who are tech oriented,
this gave them something
they didn't have."
Circuit City had been seek-
ing a buyer or a deal to refi-
nance its debt, but the weak
credit market and consumer
worries proved insurmount-
able.
"Regrettably for the more
than 30,000 employees of
Circuit City and our loyal cus-
tomers, we were unable to
reach an agreement with our
creditors and lenders,"
Marcum said.
Circuit City filed for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy pro-
tection in November and had,


been exploring strategic alter-
natives since May, when it
opened its books to
Blockbuster Inc.
The miovie-rental chain
made a takeover bid of more
than $1 billion with plans to
create a 9,300-store chain to
sell electronic gadgets and
rent movies and games.
Blockbuster withdrew the bid
in July because of market
conditions.
Circuit City, which said it
had $3.4 billion in assets and
$2.32 billion in liabilities as
of Aug. 31, said in its initial
filings that it planned to
emerge from court protection
in the first half of this year.
Under court protection,
Circuit City has broken 150
leases at locations where it no,
longer operates stores. The
company had already closed
155 stores-in the United States
in November and December.
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge
Kevin Huennekens had given
the company permission to
liquidate if a buyout was not
achieved.


Locals taking trip to inauguration


Continued from page 1A
Luther King and that
famous 'I Have a Dream'
speech" Henderson said.
"As a child, I was lost in the
sea of people who stood
there as Dr. King spoke and
I was mesmerized by the
crowd.
"I have the chance now to
go back and listen to history
again, but this time, I under-
stand now why and what my
grandmother felt. I get to
experience that excitement
that crowd felt then. I am
just as excited now as I was
when I was 10."
According to 'Moorer,
Highlands County requests
had filled over half the bus
before the company even
started to advertise in Polk
County.
"This is so exciting. We
have a bus load of about 25
people from Highlands
County going. Most of 'us
are volunteers for the elec-
tion. We don't have tickets
to the inauguration there
are no more tickets but
we are still going. We have
e-mailed everyone we know
over the last couple of
weeks, but we just could not


get tickets," Moorer said,
After the inauguration,
Moorer and Lewis will rub
elbows with some of the
most prominent people in
the country Tuesday night at
the Volunteers Inauguration
Ball.
"There were so' many
coming that 'they made a
separate ball just for the
volunteers," Moorer said.
"And we are looking for-
ward to that."
Henderson hopes to slow
the pace a bit and reflect on
the changes.
"I am going back to the
hotel and rest, but I hope to
get to spend some time (in
the lobby) with others talk-
ing about the changes com-
ing. Mr. Obama said that it
was the responsibility off all
of us to make the changes. I
am willing to do my share,"
said the grandmotherly
Henderson.
Footing their own bill for
the trip, and up to $60 per
ticket for the Volunteer Ball
alone, was not a problem for
Moorer and others.
"It is expensive to make
the trip, but this is a big
deal," Moorer said.
While they are gone,


local Democrats will be
hosting their own celebra-
tion on Tuesday night start-
ing at 6:30 p.m. at the
Quality Inn in Sebring.
Moorer and the rest leave
tonight at 9:30 p.m. from
the Walmart in Avon Park
along with other Highlands
County residents, and
should arrive in Washington
D.C. sometime on Monday.
They will return late
Wednesday, tired, but with
hope and a brighter outlook
for the future.
Borrowing a thought from
Lincoln, Henderson feels
that we cannot not dedicate
the event, but that the event
dedicates us.
As President-elect Obama
looks over the Mall towards
the Lincoln Memorial and
lays his hand on that august
President's bible, she will
be there.
"I know I cannot get
close, but I am going to
stand along Lincoln Avenue
-somewhere and 'listen. I
believe in his change, and I
am now looking forward to
the future. I am filled with
hope," said Henderson

Donations of items for needy

veterans received at VSO


By MARY MARGARET
STAIK
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Veteran
Services Office of Highlands
County received boxes and
bags of food items donated
by two anonymous donors
and their families over the
Christmas Holidays. The
Lake Jackson Post Office
delivered boxes and bags of
non-perishable food items,
and bags of toys, games, and
art supplies, as well.
A local veterans organiza-
tion distributed the non-food
items brought in by post
office staff member Wanda
Brote to the needy veteran
families of the area. Dozens
of families were recipients of
the toys and other items.
One of the anonymous
donors gave "Santa Sleigh"
centerpieces made from
assorted candies. An auction
of several of these sleighs
provided additional funds for
the local WAVES veteran
projects. The other candy
creations went to the various
VA facilities to add a spirit of
the season to the veterans in
nursing homes and VA med-

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING After 10 years at 2920
Alt. U.S. 27 South, local car dealers
Debbie Graves and Scott Albritton are.
consolidating AllStar Car & Truck Sales
into the dealership's second location at
2671 U.S. 27 South, just north of
Wendy's. The move.comes as a result of
Florida Hospital Heartland Division's
purchase of the land on which the first
dealership was located.
"From a business perspective, it was a
difficult decision to make," Graves said.
"But not every decision should be about
business. Some should be about doing
what's good for the community doing
something that can benefit everyone for

Graves and her husband, Bob, opened
the dealership on Alt. U.S. 27 South in
1998. Then, it was the first-ever Thrifty
Car Sales dealership, part of a national


franchise offering by Dollar Thrifty
Automotive Group which the Graves'
helped to create. Local car dealer Scott
Albritton joined Debbie as co-owner in
2000, and the two rebranded the dealer-
ship as AllStar in 2004. They opened the
second AllStar location in 2005.
Graves and Albritton were
approached by Florida Hospital execu-

Jensen takes on

public relations

role at Riverside


Special to the News-Sun
FORT PIERCE Lisa
Jensen, a 14-year employee
of Riverside Bank, was
named Vice President, Public
Relations and
Communications on
Thursday. She will handle the
management of all public
relations and media relations
activities, internal and exter-
nal communications, event
management and grand open-
ings.
Jensen began her banking
career at Riverside in 1993 as
a corporate trainer. During


her tenure she has held posi-
tions in Human Resources,
Lending and most recently as
Vice President, Retail Project
Manager. She is currently
president of her Florida
School of Banking class and
will graduate later this year.
She holds a bachelor's degree
in education from Warner
Southern College in Lake
Wales.
"Riverside Bank is fortu-
nate to have such an ener-
getic and enthusiastic person
as Jensen," said Scott
Williams, senior vice presi-

dent and chief marketing
officer. "She is familiar with
all aspects of the banking
business and I have no doubt
her success will continue in
this new role as she assumes
our forthcoming public rela-
tions efforts."


All-Star consolidates to one location

ties and related services to
better meet the needs of
Highlands County residents.
"It has truly been a privi-
lege to serve the past auto
needs of our customers from
this location, arid we'll con-
tinue to do so from our loca-
tion on the main highway,"
Albritton said.
In preparation for the
move, AllStar contracted
with Ron Handley of Homes
by Handley to renovate the
new location, upgrading the
lot to accommodate more
than $1 million in late model,
low mileage vehicles, and
adding 2,500 square feet in
customer service and office
space. The dealership's serv-
ice department will remain at
the old location temporarily,


but will move soon to 2651
U.S. 27 South, just one build-
ing north of the remodeled
lot and behind Alligator
Antiques and Collectibles.
"The economy has dealt
all of us a pretty tough hand,
so when it comes to trans-
portation, quality used vehi-
cles make more sense than
ever," Albritton said. "In ren-
ovating the new location,
Debbie and I wanted to be
sure we had the space and
facility to inventory the
widest range and largest
selection of quality used
vehicles possible."
AllStar Car & Truck Sales
has been consistently recog-
nized for quality customer
service. They have been the
recipient of the News-Sun's
Reader's Choice Award as


Best Pre-Owned Dealership
and Best Customer Service
for three years in a row, and
dealer, Albritton was recently
recognized as the Reader's
Choice Best Boss and Best
Sales Person of the year.
Beginning this week,
AllStar Car & Truck Sales
will be hosting a super sale at
the new location. The dealer-
ship is planning an official
grand opening in February.
"We have many happy
memories at the first loca-
tion, but are also happy to
have been given the opportu-
nity to make a difference for
our community by selling the
property to Florida Hospital,"
Graves said. "We appreciate
the continued patronage of
our customers during this
transition."

Let me go coach


That good old John
Fogerty song, "Let Me In
Coach" has been turned on
its ear by USC football
bigwig Pete Carroll.
Trojan quarterback Mark
Sanchez declared he will
forego his last season at
Southern Cal and enter the
NFL draft but apparently
awaited his coach's return
from vacation to discuss it.
Although, based on
Carroll's comments at a
press conference after
Sanchez's announcement,
it didn't matter what the
coach had to say.
The two obviously
weren't in agreement that
Sanchez should go, with
Carroll saying that the
decision "went totally
against the grain," and inti-
mated that.it was the
wrong choice to make.
Now, it's common for
players to discuss their
options with their coach,
along with those in the
know in the professional
league, to gauge about
where they'll be selected.
Often a player will find
out that he's not quite as
highly regarded as he
thought he was, and the
advice from the experts
and his coach get him to
stick around another year,
improve their skill levels
as well as their stock.
But this doesn't seem to
be a case where the percep-
tions don't match the reality.
After leading USC to a
year strong enough to
include them in the argu-
ment for the national
championship, and with
only one other top-tier
quarterback in the mix atop
the draft'depth charts; hbw
seemed a good time for
Sanchez to make the jump.
Carroll says that."it's an
experience thing,'' which
might have some truth to
it, but at what cost?
Fact is, he will be one of
the first two quarterbacks
taken,, which is not like
saying he'll be one of the
first punters taken.
If you're going to be one
of the first two quarter-
backs taken, then you're
likely to be selected in the
top five overall, top ten at


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne
the least.
That means a big sign-
ing bonus, which means
financial security.
Maybe he's not quite fully
polished to take over as the
starting QB in the NFL right
away very few are.
But give him a couple
years of practice and hold-
ing the clipboard in the
league and we'll see how it
plays out.
If Sanchez had a chance
to fall into the third round
or later, Carroll's advice
would be good and in his
player's best interest.
But it really doesn't
make that much sense
when we're talking about a
top-ten pick and comes off
as Carroll being selfish.
Matt Leinert decided to
come back for one more
year, of his own volition.
He got to enjoy another
year of college life, fight
for a national champi-
onship and polish his skills
a bit further how did that
turn out for him?
Leinert actually got
drafted lower than what he
was projected at the year
before, and after a few
chances to start, he's now
riding the pines as Kurt
Warner has his team push-
ing toward the Super Bowl.
Not that he's a lost
cause, by any means.
He's still early in his
career, and is taking part in
practices, holding the clip-.
board on the sidelines and
could turn out to be a good
NFL quarterback -
Sanchez just wants to get
an earlier start.

Soccer Streaks stopped at LaBelle

Lady Blue Streaks gain moral

victory with tie of Cowgirls


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
LABELLE Though late
in the season, a disconcerting
theme continues for the Blue
Streaks of the soccer pitch as
an early-dug hole was too
much to climb out of in a 4-2
loss at LaBelle Friday night.
"We just came out flat,"
head coach Tim Boulay said.
"For some reason we've been
doing that all year. We really
are a second-half team."
That was the case again, as
Sebring (8-7-5, 7-4-1 in dis-
trict) heated up late on a
crisp and cold night.
But the first-half deep-freeze
was too much to overcome.
Goals for the host
Cowboys at the 15:08 and
34:22 marks went unan-
swered to spell a 2-0 LaBelle
lead at the half.
Two more goals, one just
over a minute into the second
half, doubled the Streaks
deficit, making it 4-0 as the
only thing providing chills
for the visiting stands was
the dropping mercury.
But the tide turned as
Sebring asserted more con-
trol in keeping the ball head-
ing toward the LaBelle zone.
Leading scorer Buck
Schroeder broke the ice, par-
don the pun, as he slipped
past two Cowboy defenders,
squared up and blasted a shot


into the back of the net for
his 17th goal of the season.
A few more solid shots on
goal over the next few min-
utes further showed the shift
in momentum, but conver-
sions of those shots just
weren't coming.
At the 75:53 mark, Elisha
Klatt diverted a direct kick
past the LaBelle keeper to
provide for the final margin.
"We're getting a lot of
guys in there, mixing and
matching, so there's still
some learning going on,"
Boulay said. "It was a good
game in the second half, but
most importantly we came
out of it healthy."
And with just two non-dis-
trict games left on the sched-
ule before the District
Tournament, that is the most
important thing.

Lady Streaks tie
Cowgirls
SEBRING After a hard-
fought 80 minutes, the SHS
girls avenged an 8-0 loss to
Labelle earlier this season by
coming away with a. 2-2 tie
Friday night.
While they didn't come
away with the satisfaction of
a win, they were ahead for
most of the game and man-
aged to tie a very talented
out-of-district opponent.
"I consider this somewhat

Sebring's Buck Schroeder tallied his 17th goal of the sea-
son, but it wasn't enough as LaBelle rode four early goals to
a 4-2 win Friday night.


of a motivational victory,"
Sebring head coach Steve
Ashley said. "Our senior lead-
ership helped us tonight."
It was appropriate they
would rise to the occasion,
since this was Senior Night.
"As seniors we wanted to
win," said Max Copley.
"(But) I'm glad we tied."
Copley booted a shot into
the net at the end of one of
Sebring's offensive rushes
that caught defenders and the
goalie off guard, capping her
final regular season game for


the Streaks with a bang.
"It was a nice goal," she
said with a smile.
With fellow senior Lisa
Pryzchocki's penalty kick put-
ting the first tally on the board
in the 21st minute, the Lady
Streaks were looking good
heading into the second half.
Keeper Misha Hahn's lime
green shoes weren't the only
thing drawing attention in

nearly impossible shots in the

LAKE PLACID The
Lake Placid boy's basket-
ball team knew all too well
the importance of their
game Friday night as they
hosted McKeel Academy in
a key District 10-3A match
up.
The Dragons came out
strong from the start and
never looked back as they
throttled McKeel 76-46 to
move to 1-1 in district play.
Lake Placid and McKeel
played evenly in the open-
ing quarter as both teams
scored eight points'.
Lake Placid got some big
plays in the paint from big
man Travalier Sholtz who
finished the quarter with
half of the Dragons points.
The Dragons got hot in
the second quarter, outscor-
ing the Wildcats 21-12, to
take a 29-20 advantage into
intermission.
Lake Placid was led in
the quarter once again by

Sebring splits with LaBelle, Lady Streaks atone for earlier shutout to Cowgirls


Continued from 1B
first half.
The second half, however,
seemed like a different game.
The, Sebring girls played
cleaner than they did in the
first half and for the first 10
minutes dominated the ball,
keeping second half goalie


Karrie Lester all alone in goal,
without any shots to block.
Then in the 58th minute
the Cowgirls of Labelle got
lucky with a shot from 30
yards out that slipped though
Lester's gloves and was
tapped in.
The Cowgirls caught their


second wind and were relent-
less on the attack until their
next goal the Lady Streaks
would play for 10 minutes
without crossing midfield.
Lester learned her lesson
and was a human shield, pro-
tecting the net from all
would-be goals, and catching


one overhead, atoning for her
earlier mistake.
Eventually, Labelle's
Hannah Kitchenhoff would
power one over the Streak
defense from 15 yards out to
even the score.
There was good play from
both sides of the ball for the


rest of the game, though nei-
ther team could break ahead.
The Labelle team finished
with an 8-7 record, 4-4 in
their larger district. Their
first district playoff game is
Tuesday.
The Lady Streaks finished
6-9-3 and face the Lady Red


Devils of Avon Park on
Tuesday at 8 p.m. at Palmetto
High School for their first
district tournament game.

Habitat basics will help northern bobwhite quail


Despite being one of the most pop-
ular and most-studied species of
wildlife, the northern bobwhite quail
population has been in a downward
spiral for the past 30 years. Experts
say it comes down to habitat and
changing land use patterns. Knowing
their habitat basics can help turn
quail numbers around.
Food preferences For the first
six weeks of their life, quail chicks
eat small beetles, bees, spiders,
wasps, flies and other insects almost
exclusively. They then gradually
switch to grass and weed seeds and
green plant leaves. In general, grass
and fruit seeds, especially those
along'field margins, are common in
summer. Legume seeds as well as
ragweed seeds and oak and pine mast
are strong fall and winter foods.
Waste corn, soybeans and wheat are
also eaten in fall and winter. Other
important food plants for quail
include lespedeza, partridge pea,
clovers, dogwoods, honeysuckle,
crabgrass and beggarweeds.
Since chicks need insects and
grass and weed seeds, "early succes-
sional" plants are key to their habitat.
That's also why disturbance of vege-
tation by disking or burning is an


important compo-
nent in habitat
development.
Prescribed burning
is an underused but
valuable tool.
Nesting and
brood cover -

Corine Burgess road. Quail will

move their brood from moderately
dense nesting cover to more open
"bugging" areas, where bare ground
is interspersed with upright plants,
including native "bunch" grass and
forb mixtures. Overhead cover pro-
tects quail from avian predators
above; open pathways underneath
allow a running escape. Known as an
"edge" species, quail like field bor-
ders and any other gradual edge
between crop fields and woodlands,
hay lands, pastures or abandoned
lands. The absence of edge cover
can, by itself, make an area unsuit-
able to quail.
Winter cover Quail like small


fields surrounded by brushy draws,
dense brushy cover or wood lots. In
winter, look for them in a thicket of
trees, brush and vines. Warm season
grasses at least eight inches high
offer winter cover, too, as do uncut
hay fields and moderately grazed
grass/brush rangeland.

It's called the northern bobwhite,
but the quail's range extends from
Pennsylvania to southern Mexico, all
across the southeastern United States,
and as far west as Colorado.
It's one of North America's most
important game birds.

Mark Shane, and the exuber-
ant vocals by jazz singer
Terry Blaine will bring
Goodman's music alive
again.
Vache is known as a versa-
tile and exciting soloist at
festivals and concerts all
around the world. True to
Goodman's style of hot
swing playing, Vache main-
tains a busy performing and
recording schedule.
Shane's piano reflects a
true sense of living jazz his-
tory and continues the tradi-
tion of buoyant swing and
lyrical melodic improvisa-
tion. He played with
Goodman and was featured
at the 50th anniversary
Benny Goodman Memorial
Concert at Carnegie Hall.
The rhythm section also
includes internationally-
known bassist Phil Flanigan
and drummer Ed Metz Jr.
Blaine has gained interna-
tional attention and recogni-
tion as one of today's finest
interpreters of classic jazz
and swing standards from the
1930s.
To a large extent, Benny
Goodman's clarinet and his
vocalists helped shape and

The Czech Symphony
Orchestra, also known as The
Janacek Philharmonic
Orchestra of Ostrava, was
established in 1954 and arose
from the Czech Radio
Orchestra. In a short time it
became one of the foremost
symphony orchestras in the

Symphony Orchestra has per-
formed throughout most of

Leaving Kansas is
always an exciting
time for us not
because we don't
like Kansas but,
because it means
we're only 6 1/2
hours from our des-
tination Colorado!
The plains are
interesting in their
own way; but most-


Pause And
Consider
Jan Merop


ly the plains are plain.
Except for some miles of
wheat blowing in the breeze
or sunflowers brightening
the landscape, it's rather
uneventful. But, this time we
were in for a surprise.
* In the far distance, I saw
an unusual sight. In fact, at
first, I wondered if I was
seeing things. Could it be a
* mirage, I wondered?
But, these unusual white
towering and spinning
machines really were there.
The further we drove and the
closer we got, it seemed they
were growing out of the
ground by the hundreds.
o Wind machines or the
modern version of wind
mills were everywhere.
White and spinning against
the clear blue sky, they made
us feel as though we had just
driven into the future. And, I
guess in some ways we had
as this is the new wave in
of energy efficiency.
This is just one 'change we
encountered on the horizon
as we drove. But, change has
been happening so rapidly in
the last several decades.
Technology alone can hardly
keep pace with itself.
Yet, why with all of the
time saving and energy effi-


cient inventions
gracing our homes
and businesses, are
we so busy? We
have so little time
to stop and catch a
breeze (let alone
our breath) and
remember Who the
giver of our true
energy is.
When Jesus was


first explaining that a person
needed to be reborn in his
spirit to have eternal life, he
likened it to the wind that is
heard rustling through the
trees. We don't know where
it comes from or where it's
going. Yet we will easily say
that it's windy or even act as
though We see the wind. But,
we only see the results of the
wind.
And so it is with God's
Spirit. The Holy Spirit is
like the wind that moves
each one of us giving us
energy that comes from
above and enables us in
ways we can't explain. It's
"the invisible moving the
visible" as it says in John 3:
5, in The Message.
From what I understand,
wind machines are here to
stay and are a reliable source
of energy. But, the most reli-
able Source of energy is the
Holy Spirit who'indwells
every believer in Jesus
Christ.
In the midst of so much
change, he is unchangeable,
dependable and steadfast.
Selah
