Students joke around during an 'Inauguration Quiz'
Tuesday before President Barack Obama's Inauguration.
Students from Julie Giordano's Advanced Placement US
Government class at Sebring High School answered ques-
tions like 'Who gave the shortest Inauguration speech?'-
George Washington, and 'Which president walked to his
Inauguration?' Thomas Jefferson.

SEBRINd Like the rest
of the country, students at
Sebring High School have
different opinions on where
they would like the country
to go under the leadership of
Barack Obama.
The war in Iraq was on the
mind of just about every stu-
dent, while not in the work-
force yet the economy was a
topic discussed,, but with less
enthusiasm.
"The economy hasn't
affected me ... but it would be,
nice for there to be jobs wben'
I get out of college," said


Will Broen, a senior.
Other seniors in Julie
Giordano's Advanced
Placement U.S. Government
class discussed their hopes
for the coming years just
before watching the inaugu-
ration on Tuesday.
"I hope he could end the
war," Jim Polatty said.
"Basically we are throwing
away money for no good rea-
son in my opinion."
Classmate Spencer Caton
agreed the military was a
"big deal," but had no

Get ready the fair has arrived


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING At 5 p.m.
Friday the Highlands County
Fair opens its gates for 2009.
It will run through Sunday,
Jan. 31.
The fair is being held two
weeks early this year to acco-
modate the ride provider,
which had a scheduling con-
flict.
In return, Skip Adams said,
the provider will bring in
some of the more spectacular
rides, the ones that especially
appeal to teenagers.
Adams is a member of the
20-member County Fair
Board and it is "his turn" to
be one of the key organizers.
But everyone is hands-on, he
said. For a time the board
relied on a professional man-
ager, but now it wants to
return to the way things were
in the beginning, he added,
when the community was
directly involved in putting
on the fair.
Because the board is com-


munity oriented, Adams said,
it decided to leave the prices
the same as they were last
year. That means it is $6 to
get in, and a ride armband
will cost $17.
There is plenty to do along
the midway, Adams said. The
music is free and an effort
has been made to get local
talent. Adams said this year
would be an experiment. If
groups from Sebring and
Avon Park high schools bring
,people out; then next year
there will be even more local
groups.
Adams wants everyone to
know there will be plenty of
food and lots of variety, some
of it new to the fair. This year
a lot of the snacks are stuck
on a stick, he said, like chick-
en on a stick, and even barbe-
cue on a stick. '
Favorites have returned.
The hypnotist is back from
Las Vegs and so is the highly
popular Nick's kid show..
In addition to the Miss
Highlands County and Junior


Miss Highlands County
beauty pageants, there will be
a Little Miss pageant for girls
8-11. Call 382-2255 for more
information. Meanwhile, the
Junior Miss Highlands
County pageant is to have a
country theme this year.
The Highlands County Fair
is an agricultural one.
That means local students
show the livestock they have
been raising and champion
animals are chosen from
among them.
There are contests for beef
steer and heifers, dairy cows,
hogs, rabbits and chicken.
There also are contests that
have nothing to do with live
animals cooking, flower
arranging and wood working,
for example. Students also
display in-depth reports or
special projects.
Most important, on
Thursday night an auction
will be held so the students
can-sell their cattle and hogs.
This is a serious business,

a point where most of the stu-
dents at least earn back some
of their expenses, or if fortu-
nate, make money.
Adams warned that this


year looked to be difficult in
terms of getting a good sell-
ing price. He hoped lots of
people turn out to support the
students on the night of the


auction, Jan 29.
There will be plenty of free
parkiing, and some athletic
teams will offer a version of
valet parking for a fee.


Brickell Building work halted ...


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK -
Renovations on the historic
Brickell Building in down-
town Avon Park were recent-
ly halted again as developers
try to sort out the paperwork.
A permit snafu in October
of last year halted work on
the historic building at the
corner of Lake Avenue and
Main Street, and now
Worker's Compensation
Insurance problems have
again stopped repairs.
"They do not have the
proper insurance," said dapt.
Donald Simmons, one of
three code enforcement offi-
cers in Avon Park.
Although pleased with the
work in progress, Simmons
said he had to issue a cease
and desist order to the devel-
opment group American
Heritage Properties of Polk
County, located in Plant City.
"When they are working,
they are doing remarkable
and quality work, but I was
contracted by the insurance
company handling their
Worker's Compensation
Insurance, and, according to
the letter, they have let their
insurance lapse," Simmons
said.
"So far, the permit for ren-
ovations has not expired, so
they can get back to it if they
get this straightened out,"
Simmons added.
The Brickell Building is a
large part of the downtown
area, covering almost half of
a city block, and plans for the
building include making a
north and south breezeway
where retail shops will be
accessible in a mini-mall like
fashion.
Other plans include 17
apartment units upstairs, the
installation of an elevator,
and the restoration of the
facade, bringing a much
needed traffic and facelift to
the area.
', Earlier progress on the
rStro fit of the old building
w'as heading in the right
direction, when a code
enforcement officer discov-
ered that the original permit
wasA for demolition only. Not
for ,repairs.
A fter the removal of tons
of materials, the construction
crew was 'stopped in mid-
proce\ss leaving the copula
windows upstairs and some
of the doorway repairs in
limbo tor now.
"The permits were for
demoliti on only, and devel-
oper Jose, is working to pro-
duce deta filed plans and have
those plars reviewed before
the constrLtction can contin-
ue," said aria Sutherland,
Avon Park's project manager,
in an earlie r story in the
News-Sun.
"So far, exc, -pt for the per-
mit issue, I am very pleased
with their progress,"
Sutherland said.' .
"I am please with how

much care they are taking
with the historical aspects of
the building," Sutherland
said.
According to Sutherland,
Reynoso, head of the devel-
opment group' in charge of
the Brickell project, has had
success at restoring old
buildings, bringing them up
to date with modern stan-
dards while maintaining his-
torical integrity.
"They are taking great
pains to make sure that the
historical look and feel are
maintained," she said. "Mr.


Reynoso has made a big dif-
ference in the Bartow down-
town; he has changed the
face of that area."
"They are leaving the orig-
inal integrity of the building
in tact, and it is going to be
nice. They are really trying
to do it right for the commu-
nity," she said. "I can'twit to
see the finished product."
"I think they are doing a
great job, but they need to
get their insurance sorted out
before they can proceed,"
Simmons said.

AVON PARK The Avon Park City
Council was informed Monday night that
the Community Center continues to lose
money.
In a memo from Renee Green, city
finance director, to City Manager Sarah
Adelt, the council was made aware of a loss
of $2,371 from October until December
2008.
After reviewing the report in the consent
agenda, councilman Joe Wright raised a few
questions about the center.
"I see this is just for the last three months,
and I was wondering what the year was
going to turn out to be. Did we, estimate a
$25,000 loss?" asked Wright.
Leading the list of expenditures for the
center were contract services df"$3,541 fol-
lowed closely by electricity usage of $1,339
while rental income for that period of time

"Our biggest expense ... is our contract

Mayor Sharon Schuler said.
The Community Center has been one of
the items that council has debated before
because of the lack of rental revenue, and
according to Wright, is one item the council
is going to revisit in February when it focus-
es on budget issues.
"We lost over $20,000 last year, but that
was mainly due to repairs," Green said in
answer to questions from council.
An air-conditioner unit had to be replaced
in 2008.
"When we have that meeting that we
talked about' having on the budget, maybe
we need to have a little more perspective on
the Community Center," Wright said.
"We need to see if this is something annu-
alized or if the deficit is larger than suggest-
ed here," Wright said.

EDITORIAL & OPINION


t was still dark going on 6 a.m. Tuesday. The tempera-
ture hovered around 19 degrees in the nation's capital.
Already thousands of people had arrived at the Mall in
Washington D.C. in anticipation of Barack Obama's
swearing in as 44th President of the United States.


Locally, many televi-
sion sets were turned on
early, tuned into the
news coverage that unit-
ed the nation at least for
a day.
May we remember the
electricity that sizzled
through that crowd,
keeping it warm, ener-
gized and upbeat.
May we remember our
own excitement and
prayers of hope as the
sun rose and America
went about its business
of installing a new
leader, preparing to
change the nation's
direction.
And the nation, as a
whole, was loving it -
individuals full of
laughter, high spirits,
and energy, forming
well-behaved crowds


Available fr


that enjoyed sharing the
experience.
We will need all the
excitement and electrici-
ty we can muster as we
work our way through
the next several years,
solving problems and
re-establishing our
economy.
We also need to
remember that those
problems did not appear
over night and will take
time to fix. We may
even have to take anoth-
er step backward before
we can shift the momen-
tum and get moving for-
ward again.
But we will move for-
ward.
And Tuesday we all
seemed to know that.
Which is what was
most remarkable about


this inauguration the
positive outlook
expressed by most
Americans, despite the
bleak outlook.
There is a comforting
"can do". attitude still
lingering that complete-
ly balances the need to
make hard choices.
After all, this has long
been one of America's
most treasured traits -
our willingness to throw
body and soul into what-
ever we do.
Will America rise to
the challenge of helping
develop a new world
order? Of helping to cre-
ate a sustainable peace
and fair world econo-
my? Of becoming once
again the vibrant center
of new inventions and
ideas, and all around

America needs to be ready, set, go local


OK, America the new day is offi-
cially here. All of the anticipation
has built to this point where we get
back to work. That includes every-
one who currently doesn't have a job
and really wants one. There's a place
for you at the table as well.
However, we're going to have to
go a little old school and step away
from the computer for a moment in
order to create some real change that
can help everyone. We're even going
to go back to the grassroots philoso-
phy that lasting benefits start on the
local level. Instead of waiting on
Obama and Washington to fix our
problems, we're going to come
together in individual communities
to see what we can do for ourselves.
Goodbye to the trickle down theory
and hello to the raise it up ourselves.
One had us waiting like children
for someone else to grant us some of
their magnificence. We have experi-
enced what that got us and it has
come up sorely lacking. Now, we are
going to take back our ability to cre-
ate purposeful lives that include a
job, health benefits, good schools


and a roof over our heads
and it begins today.
That's going to require
face to face meetings where
people can stand up and
offer solutions. Pay atten-
tion to that last part because
it's crucial to the success of
this idea. Make it clear that
no one should be coming to
their town hall meeting with
a long list of grievances and
no tidbit of a solution.

Randolph Carr


That's just another kind of bailout
and turns citizens into helpless vic-
tims. We are done with that and we
are going to empower ourselves.
Sit down with the list and write
whatever small kernel of an answer
you have next to each issue that
needs a resolution. Bring that list
instead. Let go of the need to know
how the idea will be carried out or if
it's even feasible and allow others to
contribute their ideas on top. That's
asking for help instead of a rescue
and can bring a community together.
If you're not the one who's speak-
ing, listen with every intention of


offering your service to
some other good ideas. We
are done with the notion
that someone else holds
more of an answer than we
do. We are going to get up
each day knowing that we
may not have the entire
puzzle figured out but we
definitely have one or two
of the pieces and are just as
vital to the whole picture
coming together.


There will be some who retreat to
cynicism as some clever barrier
against hope or those who will spend
far more time pointing out what
could go wrong instead of lending a
hand. Step away from those people
and recognize that working for the
good actually takes less energy and
has a far greater chance for success.
We have entered an era that is
going to require all of us to step out
of the lives we have known and
become willing to believe in some-
thing better even when we can't see
when or how that will take place.
The first steps have already been


taken. We came together and elected
President Barack Obama fulfilling a
promise that in this country the door
is wide open for every member.
Now, it's time to create anew and for
this to work we're going to need
everyone. First step is, believing you
have something to offer, the next is
to find a place big enough to hold
the meeting and pick a date. Third is
to spread the word to everyone. Post
the notice in grocery stores and
schools and local gyms. Come on,
America, this is our day and we will
be the ones to shape it from here.

general powerhouse?
We think there is only
one answer to that ques-
tion especially hav-

absolutely amazing
Americans out and
about Inauguration Day.
Our best days lie
before us, to be lived by
all the so-many-greats-

come.
Our reward, our pleas-
ure, our challenge, is to
apply our shoulder to
the wheel of history and
by heaving together,
make a difference for
the better.
The people gathered
together in the nation's
capital Tuesday fully
understood that.
Standing outdoors in
winter, they only felt
each other's warmth.
We can ride the wave
of their optimism.
Positive energy is just
too important to waste.

Bush reign over, but
not done
Editor:
Eight years of another dis-
astrous Republican adminis-
tration, headed by the worst
president in history is finally
over, but not done with. It
will take years and years of
hard work and sacrifice to
untangle the mess that has
been created by someone
who should never have held
the highest office in this
nation. Back in 2000 I wrote
letters showing that this man
had been a failure in business
and would be 'a failure as
president, unfortunately, I
was correct. I remember get-
ting a phone call from one of
his. supporters telling me that
Bush would go down in his-
tory as the greatest president
we ever had. Well, he will
certainly go down in history,
as the greatest failure.
The 400 words allotted
here could never begin to
describe the chaos George W.
Bush has caused. Future his-
torians will refer to the past
eight years as the modern
version of the Dark Ages. I
believe we are now entering a
Renaissance Period with a
president who is for the peo-
ple of this country, not just
the wealthy.
A comparison of the two:
President Obama was presi-
dent of the Harvard Law
Review, the highest student
position at Harvard Law
School, considered the most
prestigious school in the
country. George Bush was a
Yale cheerleader.
Recently Secretary of State
Condoleezza Rice made this
ridiculous statement: "that
despite President Bush's low
approval ratings, people will
soon start to thank this presi-
dent for what he's done."
Will the families of those
who died or were severely
.injured in Iraq thank him?
Will the millions of displaced
Iraqis thank him? Will those
who have had their homes
foreclosed because there was
no oversight of lenders by
any government agency
thank him? Will the millions
out of work thank him? That
lady is severely confused.
When Bush took office
there was a surplus of funds,
he's leaving a deficit of
almost a trillion.
A man is punished when he
kills another man. Why is the
killing of tens of thousands a
lesser crime than the killing
of a single individual?
Elizabeth de la Vega, a for-
mer member of the United
States Attorney's Office in
her book "United States Vs.
George W. Bush" clearly
states the reasons Bush an
Cheney should be tried ar
convicted of crimes agai
the United States.

stability in the region or
pulling out with the support
of the American people
would be good, if it was the
right decision.
"Either way I would sup-
port it," he said, giving the
incoming president the ben-
efit of the doubt when it
comes to his decisions.
Since Sept. 11, 2001
there have been no domes-
tic terrorist attacks, some-
thing Claudia Icochea
hopes Obama will be able
to continue.
"We need to find some
sort of peace," she said. "I
hope our next generation
doesn't see what we saw
with September 11 or going
through what we did."
Sitting on the opposite
end of the room, as to
advertise his difference of
opinion, was Robert
O'Neal.
O'Neal agrees with
Obama's overall economic
policy and the way he is
trying to address health-
care, but disagrees with
him on social issues.
"I support the Second
Amendment," he said. "I


hope he doesn't abolish that
by appointing Supreme
Court justices that say it's a
militia right not a public
right (to bear arms.)"
O'Neal shares the con-
servative view on gay mar-
riage and abortion, and
hopes Obama won't dictate
policy on those issues
either.
"I hope he sticks to the
economy before he starts to
pick up the social issues,"
he said..
As for the war in Iraq,
O'Neal wished it would
have been approached dif-
ferently.
"I agree with the concept
of the war on terror but not
the wvar in Iraq," he said.
Something more covert
to take Saddam Hussein out
of power, "not sticking
everyone out there for tar-
get practice," would have
been a better choice, he
said.
The students,. though
young, know the road
ahead will be tough.
"I don't know why he
wants this job especially at
this time period," Polatty
said.

On Jan. 10 Taylor Conklin, Miss Lake Placid, attended Miss Highlands County Lezza
Freeland's high school girls' Christian conference for Highlands County girls called
'Uncrowned.' It was held at First United Methodist Family Life Center. Girls from Lake
Placid, Sebring and Avon Park attended. The girls split up into groups and talked about
self esteem, gossip, boys and many other topics of interest for girls. There were guest
speakers who talked and answered questions. The girls played games to get to know
each other and there was lots of food and a whole lot of fun and smiles. The girls and
Miss Lake Placid had a great time getting to know each other by being able to talk open-

Vandalism strikes Lake Placid


Historical Society Museum


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
Lake Placid Historical
Society was formed in 1982
with the stated purpose of
preserving the history of the
town.
At the time, the ACL
Depot.was in seriously dete-
riorated condition, looking
ready for the wrecking ball.
The Lambs, Bettes and
Dick, retired here about that
time and saw the possibili-
ties of the old building,
erected in 1926-27. They
gathered together a nucleus
of long-time residents and
set about restoring the
structure and filling it with
artifacts from Lake Placid's
past.
The result of the hard
work of the charter mem-
bers a few of whom are
still working in the Society
- is evident by driving to the
west end of Park Street and


looking at the beautiful
building preserved there.
Recently, the Depot has
had two incidents of vandal-
ism. In the first, a concrete
planter, one of two, was
knocked from its mooring
on the porch and smashed
beyond repair; this left two
pieces of the base clinging
to the porch floor ... a haz-
ard to those approaching the
building from the parking
lot.
The second incident left a
gaping hole in the northern-
most pillar of the building.
Both could have been
accidents, since once a vehi-
cle drives as far as the
Depot, the only way out is
by turning around or by
backing up. It would be pos-
sible with either alternative
to inflict the damage that
was done.
In neither of the accidents
was a note left or a call


made to inform the Society
of the damage to the build-
ing.
Most members of the
Society are older and all are
dedicated to the town of
Lake Placid. The Society
finds itself in a squeeze for
operating funds and also for
volunteers to keep the
museum open during the
tourist season. President
Betty Ray Roberts would
like to appeal to all resi-
dents of the area for volun-
teers. The very existence of
the Historical Society
depends on the response of
community residents. The
building is on the National
Register of Historic Places
and must be kept up as it
was.
Repairs are constant and
understandable, but the
repair of vandalism ( or
accident) is an added burden
to all.


Presents

Woody Allen's


"Moves the audience to great laughter...Allen's imagination is daffy, his sense of the ridiculous is keen
and gags snap, crackle and pop."
N.Y. Daily News


"It is filled with...bright and hilarious dialogue."
-N.Y. Post




Woody Allen's comedy Don't Drink The Water is a vivid reminder of how hilariously funny and often
ridiculous the Cold War could be! It is a silly, irreverent and classic American Comedy guaranteed to start
the new year with a good laugh. Don't miss it.

The Avon Park wrestlers
made it two tournament wins
in a row as they dominated
the field at the Martin County
duals on Saturday.
Six Red Devils went unde-
feated on the day, with two
others suffering just one loss
each in sweeping through the
compeition for the tourna-
ment title.
In order, Avon Park pushed
past Port St. Lucie by a 60-18
margin, squashed South Fork


52-28, tamed Titusville 50-24
before ousting Okeechobee,
42-39, in their closest match
of the day.
Onto the championship
match, the Devils finished
out the title run with a 42-33
win over Fort Pierce Central.
John Chittum (125
pounds), James Bland (160),
Kemosi Hatten (171), Omar
Torress (189), Isuel Guzman
(215) and heavyweight Jace
Grimmett each went 5-0 on
the day of outstanding per-
formances while Jeff Satine


(119) and Charles Hubbard
(145) both went an impres-
sive 4-1.
"After winning the tourna-
ment in 'Lake Wales last
week, the kids really wanted
to try and win this one as
well," co-coach Lee Elder
said. "They went out and per-
formed very well against
some quality competition.
"They're starting to see
that all the hard work is pay-
ing off and the coaching staff
is proud of them," he contin-

Dan Hoehne
Florida is right

Doesn't it bug you when
people who really aren't a
part of the discussion try to
decide the discussion for
you?
Or when someone who's
really not fully in the know
tells you that your decision
was wrong?
Such was the case, that
made me chuckle, whernI
saw the results of an
ESPN.com poll that asked if
the Bucs were right to fire
head coach Jon Gruden.
Turns out, every single
state in the union said that
Tampa shouldn't have fired
the man that won Super
Bowl XXXVII for them.
Every state, that is, except
Florida.
And of course, who would
know better the state of
affairs, the feelings around
the team, than the actual
people in their backyard?
I'm sure not every single
Buccaneer fan in the state
thought it was the right thing
to do, but obviously the vast
majority do.
Sure, he lead the team to
the Super Bowl win over the
Raiders, but he's only been

then and lost the first.game

Streaks take cross-county classic


News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE
Robertson and Young sounding more like a law firm, Avon Park's Alonzo Robertson and
Sebring's Joe Young battle for position on a free throw during the Blue Streaks 75-64 win
over the Devils Saturday night.


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING The anxious-
ness and expectation for this
game was its' usual brim-
ming self, and Saturday
nights Highlands County
match-up between Sebring
and Avon Park didn't disap-
point.
Well, at least for the home
fans, as the Blue Streaks
came away with a 75-64 win.
But it was a game that had
plenty of excitement, stand-
out play and shining
moments for both sides.
It was nip-and-tuck from
the get-go as the anticipated
front-line match-ups went
right at each other.
After Sebring power for-
ward Joe Young canned a 12-
footer, Clevelatd Nobles, the
Red Devil 6-foot, 4-inch big
man, powered inside and
drew a foul on the Blue
Streak's 6-foot-8 defensive


force, Jewel Campbell, and
hit one-of-two free throws.
Missing the second, Avon
Park power forward Alonzo
Robertson corralled the
rebound and drew a foul of
his own, connecting on one
of his free throws.
Then Campbell went
inside for two before Nobles
answered back with a power
move and baby hook that
helped the Devils to a 10-7
lead with just under three
minutes left in the opening
frame.
But from there, Sebring
caught fire with a 10-0 run
that ended the first quarter
with a 17-10 Blue Streak
lead.
Avon Park came right back
in the second, however, with
Robertson hitting two free
throws and scoring inside
twice, Nobles converting a
three-point play and then get-
ting inside again for two


before drawing another foul
on Campbell.
The 13-2 run put the
Devils back up, 23-19, before
Young answered with a fol-
low for the Streaks.
But Avon Park kept it
going with a 10-6 difference
the rest of the way to take a
33-27 lead into halftime.
That lead was quickly
erased as Sebring came out
firing in the third quarter.
Jake Trussell scored on
consecutive possessions
before Campbell set the
crowd to shaking the rafters
on a thunderous dunk.
J.C. Howard followed with
a jumper to put the Streaks up
35-33 before Avierre Conner
evened things up again with a
drive.
But here's where the
Sebring defense kicked it up
a notch by' clamping down to
turn the game around.

Big weekend for Young spells


two wins for Streaks


Continued from 1B
Over the next two minutes,
the Streaks gathered five
steals leading to easy scores.
Young was the greatest
beneficiary of the Devil
turnovers, turning them into
seven points on his own,
including a throw-down, and
Howard took one in on a
drive and suddenly it was a
44-35 lead.
Alonzo Robertson halted
the run with a jumper, but
Young went underneath .for
two more buckets and
Spencer Caton added another
before. Robertson again
drained one to end the quar-
ter with a 50-41 Sebring
advantage.
By the fourth quarter, hovw-


ever, the fouls had begun to
mount and it soon became a
parade to the free throw line
over the final eight minutes.
Only seven field goals
were converted in the period,
with one of those being a
Nobles three-pointer as the
time expired and the outcome
was already decided.
Both teams did all right
from the line down the
stretch, with Sebring going
19-26 and Avon Park 11-16,
with three three-pointers
from Avon Park providing for
the final margin.
"That's what we practice
all the time," Sebring head
coach Princeton Harris said.
"Defense, defense, defense.
We tell the kids that that's


what is going to win games.
And when they turned it up
tonight, you saw the differ-
ence it made."
Young had his second big
night in a row, after going for
25 points in the Blue Streaks
win over Lemon Bay Friday
night, he came back to score
19 and grab 13 rebounds in
the Saturday win.
"He had a big game for us
last night," Harris said. "And
we told him we'd need anoth-
er tonight and he came
through.
"It was a well-played game
with a great, playoff-type
atmosphere," he continued.
"We kept our heads and 'our
composure and got the win."

Gruden never turned



into Jackson


Continued from 1B
And that win over
Oakland, we all know, was
basically him just taking
Tony Dungy's team to its'
inevitable next step.
Yeah, like Dungy would-
n't have won it all that year,
had the Bucs not gotten rid
of him so he could go on to
lead the Colts to years of
.success.
It reminds me a bit of
what happened with the
Bulls just prior to their
championship runs of the
90s.
Doug Collins had been the
coach that got them to be a'
perennial playoff team that
kept inching closer and clos-
er, progressing in the play-
offs a bit each year.
He then gets fired,
replaced by Phil Jackson and


the team takes the next step
- six times.
And it likely would have
been eight times had
Michael Jordan not 'retired'
for a couple seasons.
Perhaps even more than
eight had general manager
Jerry Krause not been such a
constant irritant that pushed
Jackson out of the picture,
which lead to Jordan leaving
and the whole thing falling
apart but I digress.
Had Gruden taken the
team that next step and then
had them as a constant Super
Bowl challenger, then there
wouldn't be any doubt and
he'd now be the most secure
and well paid coach in the
NFL.
Had Jackson taken the
Bulls to one title, and then
saw them fall back to medi-


ocrity, he too would have
been gone within a few
years.
Chicago fans of that era
are well aware that Collins
laid the groundwork, but
realize that Jackson took it
to a whole other level.
Tampa fans of this era are
well aware that it was Dungy
Who laid the groundwork for
the Super Bowl champions.
Gruden took them the next,
step, but that was it which
is why his latest step is out
the door.
It is the right move for the
Bucs.
. We should know.

Lake Placid Marine tops


Seminole Tire


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
Lake Placid Marine team
topped the Seminole Tire
team in a hard fought game
by a score of 13-12 in Lake
Placid Senior Softball
league play on Monday, Jan.
19.
Tom Giownik had 3 hits
and an RBI, Bert Roloff had
2 hits and 3 RBI and Duke
Hensley had a triple for the
winners.
The losing team out-hit
the winners by a good mar-
gin, but were not able to
string their hits together for
scores.,
Fred Moore and Gary Van
each went 4-for-4 and Jeff
Stanley 3-for-4 With a triple.
Also, 83-year old John
Ladensack, a WW II Pacific


theater Navy veteran and
former baseball player in
the. Chicago White Sox
organization who still plays
competitive baseball, was 2-
for-3 in the losing effort.
The other game on
Monday was another close
one, with Central Security
holding off Schoonis for a
12-10 win.
Schoonis had the tying
runs on base when the last
out was made.
Dick Harmich pitched an
outstanding game for the
winners and, along with
teammates Don Thomas and
Richard Rivera, had 3 hits at
the plate.
However, the biggest hit
for their team was probably
a 3-run home run by Larry


Oser.
The Schoonis team had a
slow start with several pop
flys, but the bats then came
alive with Howard Carney,
Darrell Richards and Rod
Palmer having 3 hits each
with one of Palmer's being a
home run.
Seven other players on
the Schoonis team had 2 hits
each but, in the end, they
came up short.
The remarkable balance
of the league is not only
demonstrated by the close
scores for most games, but
by the fact that all teams
now have identical records
of 2-2.
The 20-game season will
continue through March at
the Lake June ball fields.

ing.

Sebring Optimist Club
SEBRING The Sebring Optimist
Club salutes the Palms of Sebring on
its 50th anniversary. A number of their
residents had been volunteers in the
community, especially for youth in the
public schools.
Also, members salute the civic and
government agencies that continue to
aid the youth in spite of the economic
downturn, state and nationwide.
TOPS FL 487, Sebring
SEBRING It was announced Jan.
14 that Lillian Orton, member of TOPS
FL 487, had reached her goa and is the
club's- newest KOPS.
The chapter welcomed two new
members Cathy Stull and Margaret
Wiley. Roll call had the chapter with a
net loss of six pounds. Best Loser for
the week was Bette Gillett with a 2.8


pound loss. Receiving awards were
Lillian Orton, a charm for reaching her
goal weight; Renewal charms went to
Ann Marvin and Ellie Tobias.
Yes-Yeses for the week are: portion
control, eat less salt, drink water, fruit,
vegetables, fiber and lean meat.
The 25-cent contest had 13 winners
at 50 cents each and Alice Bowen won
the $2.30 in the 10-cent contest.
The Mystery Gift is now with Ruth
Scharf with three weeks to go. The

TOPS Club 632, Lake
Josephine
SEBRING Kathy Schreima pre-
sented the program, which began with
a synopsis of "The Wizard of Oz." She
went on to talk about the perils that all
face on a weight loss journey. The
Wicked Witch who sabotages diets
with tempting foods, and suggestions,
and the Scarecrow who is searching for
his brain. Members were urged to be
smart, use their brains and only eat
what's on their diets. The Tin Man was
looking for a heart and everyone was
reminded of the support they give and
receive from the hearts of others. Then
the Cowardly Lion, who is searching
for his courage, makes members think
about having the courage to admit they
need help to face up to the eating prob-
lems and then doing something about
it.
There were 58 members present and
some great losses this week. The Best
Loser of the Week was Larue Wilbur.
Ethel Emmanuel and Barbara Embeck


both received a Halfway to Goal
charm, and Lois Gibbons and Kathy

imagination is daffy, his sense of the ridiculous is keen
and gags snap, crackle and pop."

"It is filled with...bright and hilarious dialogue."
-N.Y. Post



Woody Allen's comedy Don't Drink The Water is a vivid
reminder of how hilariously funny and often ridiculous
the Cold War could be! It is a silly, irreverent and classic
American Comedy guaranteed to start the new year with a
good laugh. Don't miss it.

Sebring
Recreation Club
By Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING The recre-
ation club is full of love for
each other and 2009 is not
going to let this go. You have
people giving up their time
for others, like the kitchen
staff for the Orange Blossom
Tournament. Bill and Joyce
Kaleita, Patty Boswell,
Janice Patterson and Lisa
LaCotti fed all that wanted
food those days. We wish to
thank them for the meals that
were so tasty. The courts
were washed and cleaned
before this day by John
Bushee. Gary Holloway set
the courts up and swept them
before their use, even with
just two hours of sleep for the
second day.
Then 6:30 a.m. to 7:30
p.m. makes for a long day at
the courts and then going for
a ride to Tampa. Gary
Holloway, Don Rohman,
Tom Bruha, Peter White,
Max Tate and Bill Pollock
made all the good calls.
Giving of themselves so that
others can play, we thank
them all.
Lorraine Pollock was the
tournament director and a
smooth one this was. Thank
you Lorraine, from the recre-
ation club, for another out-
standing job.
We are guilty of occasion-
ally changing otr minds and
shooting too fast. Whatever
Sthe reason for changing your
shot, stop right there and wait
until you are absolutely sure
it is what you want before-
you take it. Drifty courts add
spice to our game. Even bad
courts and bad discs make a
player think and concentrate.
Fall in love with the court
and letyour opponent hate it.
The board is clear, you are
ahead, you have two discs
left and your opponent has
one. Where do you put the
sixth disc? Do you put up a
hide? Do you go on board?
Wherever you put the sixth
disc, it will offer him either a
chance for a hide, or a chance
to kitchen it. If you put the
disc in the gutter it will not
offer a hide nor can it be put
in the kitchen.
Our league has started for
the 2009 season with some
new players to the league.
This is the most fun one can
have in shuffleboard in my
opinion. You become even
* closer to all the other players
that are on the same team. As
a rule, the league standings
are settled in the last couple
' of weeks because the teams
',are so evenly matched. Six
players make up your team.
Dell Realty was the good
sponsor- for this tournament.
With a community-oriented
business like this, we in
Sebring are so fortunate. Pat
Dell was out of town so he
did not have the chance to
compete in this one. When
you see Pat be sure and tell
him that Dawn Dell is doing
a good job in his place.
All park teams should be
getting their registrations
returned to George Kisel or


Carl Wile because it will not
take long for the 10 teams to
be registered. Parks like
Sebring Grove have one team
registered but they can find
one more quickly I bet.
This good work was start-
ed about five years ago by
Max and Ruth Tate, very'
active shufflers. It would not
surprise me to see them drop
in to see how it is going.
Coffee and doughnuts will be
served in the morning with
lunch served at noon to the
shufflers.
Table tennis players should
check all the furniture places
to see who would like to put
a good table tennis table in
the recreation center for our
use. You, the players, will
have your own best interest
and get more done than other
club members.
Orange Blossom had 120
shufflers for this one, 22
teams of ladies and 38 male
teams. Ruth Tate was the
only lady Sebring Club mem-
ber that won. A good time
was had by most even though
they did not win. The food
was better than just good and
the company was even better.
Max Tate is the only club
member that won at
Kissimmee on Jan. 8 out of
64 players in tournament run
by Ed O'Neal.
John Bushee needs help for
the tournament this week, so
talk to him and tell what you
can do to help. This one is a
no two pros any doubles
Thursday. Friday finds
District and State Amateurs
draw'doubles. Shuffling is at
its best in this area, so plan
on competing. If you want to
watch, make yourself at
home. Eat good food and
home-cooked desserts at a
very fair price. Call Ed
Straub with your suggestions
at 386-0245.

Town and Country
Mobile Home Park
By Janet Day

SEBRING We wish to
welcome Fran Meinstra and
her companions back for the
winter season. Certainly intu-
itive folks to leave Canada

airived. Fran has been quite

by many. We also welcome
Joe/Nel Young and Mr./Mrs.
Whitson, sister to Mr. Young,
from North Carolina. These
lovely folks are temporarily
residing on Town and
Country Blvd. Welcome
home from Highlands
Regional to Eunice Hazelton.
Eunice is currently on the
mend and is grateful to all the
neighbors who have been so
supportive to her and Lucky
during her illness. Welcome
home, Eunice, and best wish-
es.
Saturday's great breakfast
was very well attended. From
the smiles and chatter, every-
one thoroughly enjoys get-
ting together for the fellow-
ship and food. Thank you to
the good staff Wendy
employs! John Haag, Marge
Mace, Claudette Boisvert and
Mary Beth Carby to name a
few. Adverse weather has
obliterated the water aerobics
schedule but all other activi-
ties are functioning well. The
Ladies Luncheon at Sunrise
Restaurant attracted 24 ladies
I'm told. The Friday morning
Bible Study also had 24 last
week. Great participation.
We look forward to our first
Italian Night dinner at 5 p.m.
today. Don't miss it ladies
have been busy decorating -
we don't have to cook -
sounds great!
Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 1
p.m., is the annual park-wide
garage sale. Folks have some
unique and lovely items so
don't miss it. Parking will be

available for those with
walking difficulties. Visit the
clubhouse for coffee, baked
items, and lunch service.
Come look around our lovely
park. Homes are available for
sale/resale. See you on Jan.
24th.
We had a delightful
Sunday recently thanks to our
neighbors, Bill and Bess
Wyse. It was our first visit to
Bok Tower Gardens in Lake
Wales. The gardens, grounds,
tower,. museum are all
delightful but most of all, we
found it to be such a peaceful
and enriching experience.
The Carillon music is pre-
sented daily and we were
able to view the fantastic
Christmas decor at Pinewood
