SEBRING Central Florida woke
up Thursday and today with frosted
windshields and frozen plants. An Arctic
high pressure airmass remains in effect
through this morning, with hard freeze
warnings until 9 a.m..
Many areas saw temperatures ranging
from 28 to 32 degrees for three or more
hours over the last two nights.
Temperatures were cold enough that the
county opened the Bert J. Harris
Agriculture Center at 4509 George
Blvd. as a shelter.
Local growers are dealing with the
situation. Most are having to take a wait
and see attitude.
Julian Moore, who owns and operates


Did you know?
By spraying plants with water, a sheet
of ice protects the foliage and fruit to
dipping below freezing temperatures.
A freeze does not make oranges and
blueberries sweeter.,
i
Blue Diamonds Blueberries, said
Thursday morning he has seen some
damage to his crop, but won't know the
extent until later in the day when the
protective ice covering melts-.
Moore .explained that blueberry
plants, once leafed and budding, are
only hurt by cold weather. By spraying
them with water a protective sheet of ice


protects the plant to about 32 degrees.
But, Moore said he has to wait to see
what the final verdict is.
Also' waiting are caladium farmers
who were just approaching an important
time of the year. The plants had already
died back and gone dormant. Right
around now they begin to reawaken and
send out shoots.
"I'm a little nervous," Terri Cantwell,
of Bates Sons & Daughters, said. "We
don't know yet how much damage was
done. It depends on how cold the
ground got. We'll have to wait and see.
"It has put the plants back (in terms
of time). My kids were so excited about
the ice, but all I could imagine was

Talk of

cutting
sports

programs

surfaces at
budget

workshop
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING With the
school board continuing
to search for ways to cut.
the budget, everything is
being considered.
At Tuesday's budget
workshop, board member
Wally Randall brought up
cutting the district's ath-
letic programs.
"I would venture to
guess we spend close to
half a million dollars on
athletics and related
expenses," he said in an
interview Thursday.
"Travel, maintenance,
salaries, equipment; it can
include a lot of things."
Though it was only an
idea he brought up for
consideration, concern for
the future of Highlands
County sports has spread
like wildfire across the
county.
"There's all kinds of
rumors out there,"
Superintendent Wally
Cox said. "All he did was
mention it. We are cutting
the budget. That needs to
be on the table, so to
speak."
No motion was made,
as the comment was made
at a budget workshop.
Action is only taken dur-
ing meetings, not work-
shops.
"The purpose (of a
budget workshop) is to
review every aspect of
our annual budget, not
just parts of it," Randall
said. "If people heard it
wrong and said my pur-
pose is to eliminate ath-
letics, they are upset.
When I tell them we are
going to review every
aspect of every budget,
they say 'That makes
sense.'"

Lake Placid lunch lady eyes nutrition association state presidency


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID She
spends her days as a mild-man-
nered lunch lady at Lake Placid
High School, but by night
Paula Fabik is nothing short of
superwoman.
Fabik, who has worked in
the lunchrooms of Highlands
County schools for the past
nine years, is also the
Scholarships and Awards Chair
of the Florida School Nutrition
Association and has served in
other numerous positions.
A few years ago she was
tapped to be second in com-
mand of the local Highlands
County association, and she
didn't look back.
The position "president-
elect" serves under the presi-
dent for a year to learn the job
and then becomes the presi-


dent.
"My manager at the time
said 'We need a president-elect
for the association,'" Fabik
said. "I didn't know I was
going to be the president and
then when I got involved, it's
an addiction."
Later she became the direc-
tor-elect of the region made
up of nine counties that span
from the east to the west coast
of Florida and, much like
her former position, the next
year she served as the director.
She takes her job feeding the
youth of the county very seri-
ously, which sometimes
includes "tricking" students
into eating their fruits and veg-
etables.

Hospice is. special needs; work can continue


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING In front of a
passionate audience gathered
in support of creating a hos-
pice in-patient care center, a
majority of city council
members voted Tuesday to
clarify that "special needs
housing" permissible
under R-2 and therefore also
R-3 zoning includes hos-
pice facilities.
The distinction was needed
so work on an in-patient hos-
pice unit, proposed by Good
Shepherd Hospice for the site
at 1110 Hammock Road,
could continue its permitting
and construction process.
A residential development
called Southern Oaks, to
have created 42 residential
housing units, had already
been approved for the 6.3-
acre site. When plans
changed, Good Shepherd


Hospice moved to buy the
site because it is convenient
to a major highway and is
roughly half way between
both major hospitals.
The council was asked to
approve the change in the
development agreement to
allow for the hospice house.
The area is zoned R-3,
however, and R-3 zoning
does not allow for nursing
homes. There was some
debate as to how a hospice
house should be defined is
it a nursing home, or is it a
special needs establishment.
That is why City Attorney
Robert Swaine recommended
the council make clear what
it considers the phrase "spe-
cial needs" as including.
Right from the beginning it
was clear the idea of a hos-
pice house had the support of
the full council.


But council
member John
Clark did
have reserva-
tions about t t
what he saw
as a change in
land use McIntyre
without a
public hearing.
"Ram rodding this through
in one meeting is not right,"
he said. "It's a process; there
should be a timeline."
Fellow member Margie
Rhoades responded that the
land use change wasn't rele-
vant because both the former-
ly proposed residential units,
and the hospice house were
permitted by the same zoning
codes. In other words, as
long as whatever was built
met the zoning codes, the
change was nobody's busi-
ness.
Becky McIntyre, regional


director for Good Shepherd,
presented the city council
with the hospice plans, which
will be in the Florida Cracker
style.
"Currently patients (and
their families) must travel
nearly 50 miles to the nearest
hospice house," McIntyre
said.
She also explained that
Florida law makes it difficult
to establish a hospice house
in the first place. In fact,
Florida has 67 counties,
McIntyre said, but only 40
hospice houses.
The state requires a
Certificate of Need to be
shown, which means signifi-
cant local support has to be
raised.
For example, a community
is expected to conduct a letter
writing drive. In Highlands
County more than 320 letters
were sent to the state office


that oversees the' establish-
ment of hospice houses. And
the Economic Development
Council submitted an impact
analysis that indicated a hos-
pice home would bring more
benefit to the community
than it would require in serv-
ices.
.Referring to the loss of
property taxes that will result
by shifting the site's use from
42 private residences to a sin-
gle non-profit agency, Mayor
George Hensley said, "We
would be very, very short
sighted, if we think only of
tax revenue. I like the idea of
less traffic (on Hammock
Road). I'm going to urge the
council to be positive about
this."
McIntyre said the facility
would provide 30-35 high
quality jobs, and produce
about $3.1 million in direct
output.


In terms of need, McIntyre
said hospice served 663
patients in 2008, ranging in
age from a few months to
over 100 years old.
In terms of community
involvement, McIntyre said
Good Shepherd Hospice's
150 volunteers provided
$123,000 worth of services to
Highlands County, and
$500,000 in charity care in
2008.
While members of the
audience had reservations
about a hospice home in the
neighborhood, most were
worried about intrusive park-
ing lot lights. McIntyre
agreed to give the neighbors
their own detailed briefing
and answer any questions.
In the meantime, by a vote
of 4-1, the city council
agreed a hospice house fit the
zoning codes and that work
could continue.


Mandates, cuts top county concerns


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING Wednesday's
Legislative delegation
packed the seats of the
Government Center board-
room as more than a dozen
citizens came to make their
voice heard.
"People are just scared to
death 'as to what's going to
happen to their programs,"
said Baxter Troutman (R) of
the Florida House of
Representatives. "Some of
the cuts could affect those
that need it the most."
Rhonda Beckman, execu-
tive director of the Ridge
Area Arc, has dealt with cuts
to her budget for the past few
years.
She said she feels the cuts
to people with developmental
disabilities are not in propor-
tion with the other cuts
around the state.
After the special session
S their funding was cut by 7
percent, and it is recommend-
ed to be cut another 5 percent
this year. They also have to
deal with unfunded mandates
from the state, which can cost
a lot, Beckman said.
Ridge Area Arc pays a lot
of money for training, which
depending what it is, they
can't do locally.
"When we have to pay
staff to go to Lakeland or
Bartow we have transporta-
tion, time they spend travel-
ing to and from there," she
said. "When you have 90
people over the course of the
year it adds up."


Speaking for the school
board, Superintendent Wally
Cox addressed the topic of
unfunded mandates as well.
He gave the example of an
ethics bill.
"It's well intended, but it's
costing us a lot of money to
implement it," he said. "Just
put it on hold for two or three
years. I've cut three staff out
of HR, so to have to imple-
ment this would be difficult."
After pleading with local
residents earlier in January to
call or e-mail their represen-
tatives and ask for "flexibili-
ty," Cox was thankful the
Legislature granted him flex-
ibility in how he. could use
capital outlay funds during
the special session.
The Legislature is facing
huge obstacles trying to bal-
ance the budget as the sag-
ging economy has directly
affected tax collections.
The deficits were
addressed last week at the
end of the special session,
resulting in a $2.6 billion
plan that included $1 :2 bil-
lion in spending cuts.
This included $480 million
from schools, but Cox got
some of the flexibility he
Wanted.
Normally the school dis-
trict could only spend capital
outlay funds on maintaining
buildings, but now it can help
the district pay its bills
though the end of the school
year.
"The cuts could have been
much more severe under the
current economic situation,"


Cox told the delegation.
Aside from the county,
sheriff's office, school board
and city of Avon Park, 14
individuals representing a
specific cause or other small-
er agency pled their cases to
the delegation.
Florida Regional Team
leader Terri Koopman of the
AARP begged legislators to
think of the people the cuts
affected and to be careful
with what they cut.
"Make cuts with a scalpel,
not an axe," she said.
Gaye Williams, chief
executive officer of Central
Florida Health Care, was one
of the few people to request
funding. The money would
be used to convert to an elec-
tronic records system.
The center receives a lot of
funding from federal
sources, but with additional
Floridians joining the ranks
of the uninsured, its number
of patients has sharply
increased. The facility is run-
ning out of room for record,
and has requested, the imioe
to electronic records foi more
than a year.
Other agencies represented
were Healthy Start, a free
program for pregnant women
and infants; the American
Cancer Society, which had a
volunteer talking about the
proposed cigarette tax; and
Tri-County Human Services,
which talked about the
importance of the In-Jail
Substance, Abuse Treatment
Program and other rehabilita-
tion services it provides.

SEBRING A recent
lawsuit and an appeal of ter-
mination brings into question
the county's fairness and
equality in how employees
are treated.
Ex-county employee
Crystal Henry filed a notice
of appeal of her termination
from Highlands County Road
and Bridge last Friday.
Henry, who held the posi-
tion of Public Works special-
ist with Road and Bridge,
said she was informed on
Jan. 12 that she was "no
longer needed," but Henry
contests that the county han-
dled it improperly.
Henry's recent firing
comes on the heels of a law-
suit filed by other ex-
employees in Federal Court
alleging that the county vio-
lated the Fourth, (illegal
search and seizure), and the
Fourteenth (equal protection
under the law) Amendments.
Plaintiffs are Jared Lee,
former budget analyst;
Treasa Handley, former coor-
dinator of non-ad valorem tax
assessments, and Christine
Edwards, former budget
technician. All three worked
in the county's Office of
Budget and Management.
Lee, Handley and Edwards
were released by the county
because of "inappropriate"
use of county work comput-


ers by sending instant mes-
sages, some of which were
were declared "sexually
explicit in nature."
The lawsuit claims that the
instant messages were "ille-
gally disclosed" because they
were personal in nature and
released without the employ-
ees' consent.
According to the document
filed in U.S. District Court,
Southern Division in Fort
Pierce by attorney James
McCollum, "the messages
were obtained without a
search warrant or a subpoena,
and were not retrieved in the
course of a criminal investi-
gation."


Additionally, McCollum
sates that the disclosure of
the instant messages violated
the Federal Electronic
Communications Privacy
Act, a similar state law, and
federal and state privacy
rights.
The lawsuit asks the court
"to prohibit the use of such
disclosed information
(instant messages) as the
basis for disciplinary pro-
ceedings which were initiat-
ed" by-county officials.
If the instant messages are
prohibited, there would have
been no basis for disciplinary
action.

Disaster in

Mexico

Several years ago, I gave a
speech at a women's confer-
ence at a resort north of
Mexico City. I couldn't help
but notice that there were a
large number of men in suits
just hanging around. One of
the participants explained
that these were the body-
guards and the bulges in their
From suits were
l guns. It
the appears-
Right that upper
c 1 a s- s
Side Mexican
D women do
Dale OZearj, not go
anywhere without protection
because of fear of kidnap-
ping.
Since then things have got-
ten worse. A friend whose
parents live in Guadalajara
did not take her children to
visit their grandparents for
Christmas because the drug
and gang violence makes
travel too dangerous.
Another friend from El
Paso, Texas, no longer visits.
friends across the border in
Juarez, Mexico. She is afraid
of criminals, who routinely
stop cars and enter restau-
rants to steal money and in
the process shoot innocent
people. On the Web site
designed to promote Juarez
tourism, one can find the fol-
lowing headline "Warning:
Juarez has recently experi-
enced a dramatic increase of
street violence that in some
cases has led to the deaths of
innocent bystanders. We rec-
ommend that you not travel
to the city at this time."
Mexico is in the midst of a
violent drug war in which
kidnappings, extortions and
brutal slayings are common.
Those who refuse to pay the
gangs for protection are
beheaded and their bodies
left in the street as a warning
to others. Ordinary criminals
have taken advantage .of the
total breakdown of law and
order to prey on innocent
victims.
The pressure on our border
Will undoubtedly increase as
the innocent try to escape
(and which of us placed in a
similar situation wouldn't
look for a way out). But the
innocent aren't the only ones
coming north. The Mexican
drug gangs are establishing
themselves in U.S. urban
areas, so as to control both
ends of the drug supply chain
and using the same violent
tactics they use in Mexico.
One of the problems in
dealing with the drug gangs
on both sides of the border
under laws, which protect
their "rights," is that the drug
. gangs aren't afraid to kill
witnesses, law officers, and
judges. Even if the gang
members are arrested, they
exercise their power within
the prison system. This is a
different kind of terrorism
and the Obama administra-
tion will have to deal with it.
The government of Mexico
is literally fighting for its
life, yet the media has barely
mentioned this major crisis.
We hear about deaths in Iraq,
Gaza, and Afghanistan, but
what about the 5,000 people
murdered last year in drug
war violence in Mexico.
This isn't happening on the
other side of the ocean, but
right across our border and
Americans must take some of
the blame. The money that
gives drug lords the ability to
arm themselves with the lat-
est high tech weapons, bribe
officials, and sustain private
armies came out of the pock-
ets of Americans who pur-
chase illegal drugs. Illegal
drug use isn't a victimless


crime; every hit is stained
with blood.
Solving this problem isn't
going to be easy, but the first
step is recognizing that there
is a problem and if we don't
do something fast, the vio-
lence could spread to our
cities and then where would
we run to.

TODAY'S LETTERS


Meir quote says it all
Editor:
I don't think this quote
requires a long letter. It says
it all:
"We can forgive the Arabs
for killing our children. We
cannot forgive them for forc-
ing us to kill their children.
We will only have peace with
the Arabs when they love
their children more than they
hate. us." Golda Meir
Pearl Carter
Lake Placid

Big refunds should
be accounted
Editor:
Well it's tax refund time as
we all know, and the tax
refund companies are saturat-
ing television broadcasts
with quotes like "what you
need is a big tax refund" by
actors portraying the presi-
dents represented on certain
bills.
This can be a joyous time
for many, and a time for con-
templating life for others.
Some single men, and
women, despite having maxi-
mum withholding, find that
they still owe more money.


This is because they have no
children to place them in the
highly coveted "earned
income credit" category. Yes,
arguably, they could have
chosen to have bxtra deduct-
ed from each already-
stretched-to-the-limit pay-
check, but none of them can
spare a dime as this wretched
economy wraps its ugly arms
around them while blowing
the kiss of financial doom
into their ears.
It is not uncommon for a
single mother with multiple
children (with multiple
fathers) to receive $6,000 to
$7,000 as a "refund," with
the numerous credits being
the catalyst providing their
sudden windfall. These peo-
ple are the "bread and butter"
of Jackson Hewitt, and H&R
Block, not to mention many
independent tax preparers.
The rapid refund industry
thrives upon these fortunates,
because their fee for quick
money barely puts a dent in a
huge refund of thousands,
making them ultra willing to
"cash in" as soon as possible.
Now before I become the
most hated man in Highlands
County, I must give credit to


the single mothers, a few
fathers that so very much
deserve this money and work
hard to provide for their chil-
dren. Their refunds go either
directly, or in many forms
indirectly to the kids that
qualified them for the money.
My problem is with the
people that treat this like a
lottery win and spend the
money intended for help with
their kids on frivolous things.
I have heard of this money
being spent on bail money,
drugs, etc. This money
should be accounted for in
receipts.

Smoking ended with
hypnosis
Editor:
I was a cigarette smoker
for over 42 years and like
most smokers, I tried just
about everything to quit.
Over the years, I wasted a lot
of money on patches, gum
and pills. Desperate and feel-
ing out of control, I made a

call to Jon Spiegel at the
Hypnosis Center in
Downtown Sebring. I knew
nothing about hypnosis and
actually had some reserva-
tions and skepticism about
it.
After the first session, I
actually cut my smoking
habit in half. A week later, I
went in for my second ses-
sion and totally eliminated
my smoking habit ... if I
knew it was going to be that
easy, I would have done it
years ago. I do occasionally
think about having a ciga-
rette, but it is such a short
thought that quickly passes.
The driving urge is totally
gone. I know I can always
pick up a cigarette, but as
strange as it may sound, I just
don't want to.
Several friends of mine
have successfully used hyp-
nosis to lose weight. This
stuff works! I feel great hav-
ing the freedom of a non-
smoker and I want to say
thank you Jon, it was a lot
easier than I thought it would
be!

THE TIME IS NOW
If you are ever going to love me, Love me now,
While I can know the sweet tender feelings which from true affection flow.
Love me now, while I am living, do not wait until I'm gone,
And then have chiseled in marble sweet words on ice cold stone.

If you have tender thoughts of me, Please tell me now.
If you wait until I am sleeping, never to awaken,
There will be death between us, and I won't hear you then.

So, if you love me, even a little bit, let me know it while I am living,
So I can treasure it.

Highlands County School
Board, joked about using other
fruits to get students to take
orange slices, an item that is
both nutritious and inexpen-
sive.
"We were putting oranges
out there and no matter how
we sliced them they wouldn't
take them," she said.
After adding a few other
fruits, or a slice of kiwi and
making it look like a fruit
salad, they were much more
popular. The students took the
bait.
"It's like fishing," Brown
joked. I
Both women have fun
demeanors but are serious
about nutrition.


"We have guidelines we
have to follow," Fabik said,
adding that the obesity epidem-
ic wasn't around when she was
in school.
"I think for a lot of kids it's
too much fast food out there,"
she said. "When I was growing
up we didn't have all that fast
food."
Each meal has specific
caloric requirements, including
a certain maximum percentage
of those calories that can be
from fats. Fruits and vegetables
are on the serving line every
day.
"It's good to see the kids eat
healthier," she said. "When
they eat their fresh fruits and
vegetables, I really enjoy see-
ing that."


Talk of cutting sports

programs at schools


Continued from page 1A
The idea comes on the
heels of a pay-to-play fee at
the middle schools, where
students are charged $20 to
try out for a team.
The figure was suggested
by middle school principals
after a discussion came up
during the 2008 summer
break about cutting :sports
programs. The district started
collecting the fee at the
beginning of the school year.
Also being considered is
teachers working straight
through the day without a
period off for planning,
called the' seven by seven
schedule.
Randall is not convinced it
is the answer. Teacher
burnout is a factor, he said,
which could effect the quali-
ty of instruction students
receive.
He said a district-wide pay
cut could be the solution, but
teachers need:to decide what
they want and communicate
their desires to the board.
"The proposed savings of
going to a seven by seven
schedule (where teachers


lose their planning period) is
about $1.6 million," he said.
"If everybody that worked
for the school board took a 3
percent cut in salary that
would be close to $2 million.
Nobody would have to lose
their job."
Each percent cut from the
personnel budget, accounting
-for 85 percent of the overall
school district's budget,
would be a savings of
$650,000, Randall said.
Cox has said the seven by
seven proposal would allow
him to cut roughly 10 percent
of his staff while keeping
class size the same. Under
the plan roughly 30 teachers
would lose their jobs in local
middle and high schools.
"I think (a salary cut) is an
option the teachers need to
discuss with themselves and
need to discuss with the
union," Randall said.
"Basically nobody would
have to fose their job."
The next budget workshop
has not been scheduled yet,
but will take place some time
in late Februafy at the School
Board District Office.


Continued from page 1A
damage because there were
cold days in a row. We'll just
have to wait and see.
"At least, only about 30
percent of the crop was still
in the ground."
Citrus growers are also on
pins and needles.
"(Thursday) was a very
cold night," Marvin Kahn, of
Kahn Grow Services, said.
"It was 28 degrees on
Lakeview Drive this morn-
ing. I -don't know how long
that lasted in the citrus
groves.
"It was a very calm night,
so the cold settled in the low-
est places. In one grove the
temperature got to 21 or 22
degrees. But there seems to
be minimal damage, even in
the places with the lowest
temperatures. It's almost
strange."
Kahn 'said we need to
remember that Florida has a
temperate, not tropical, cli-
mate and these temperatures
are normal.
"I don't want to trivialize


this," he said, "we did find
fruit with ice, (but not at all
groves). It's, what makes our
citrus industry hard to pre-
dict. It's a mixed bag. We
will have to wait and see."
Kahn added that Thursday
night's weather was predicted
to contain much more mois-
ture. That means, he said,
that the dew point will be
*reached sooner, and there
may be more frost.
People are warned that in
this kind of cold, pets should
be brought indoors and plants
protected. Experts recom-
mend wearing layers of
clothing, not just one jacket
or coat. Layers do a better job
of insulating against the cold
weather, and can be removed
for comfort as the day warms
up.
Be especially careful in
handling space heaters and
never leave one turned on
unattended. Avoid extension
cords and be sure the area
around the space heater is
clear of all clutter, especially
clothing.

Panthers no match for Dragons


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
News-Sun sportswriter
LAKELAND With the
temperatures plunging into
the low 40's Tuesday night,
the Lake Placid girls soccer
team was on fire as they wal-
loped the Mulberry Panthers
7-0 to ensure a spot in the
District 8-3A championship
game at Southwest Sports
Complex in Lakeland.
Along with the win the
Dragons punched their ticket
to the FHSAA state soccer
series with one more win
the Dragons will have home
field advantage for the first
game.
Lake Placid "I am
1 happy with
this," said
head Green
Mulberry Dragon coach
John Merlo.
"When I was
hired I told
the girls that if they played
hard we would be playing for
a District title and here it is."
Lake Placid got on the
scoreboard in the opening
minutes of the game as senior
Erica Resendiz darted
through the Panther defense
allowing her a one-on-one
shot with the goal keeper.
The keeper had no chance
of stopping ,Resendiz as the
Dragons pulled ahead 1-0.
Yurribia Terrones got in on
the scoring action several
minutes later as Resendiz
went coast-to-coast, weaving
through traffic until she
found the open Terrones for
the easy goal to push the
Dragons lead to 2-0.
"We had opportunity after
opportunity that we didn't
deliver on," commented
Merlo. "We should have had

Cold, long nights for



Lady Streaks


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
PALMETTO The .old
sports adage is that it is dif-
ficult to beat the same team
three times in one season.
Which would explain the
never-ending battle Tuesday
night that went to a triple-
overtime shootout before
Sebring could get past Avon
Park, 3-1.
But it was because of that
that Braden Rivers' task
became that much easier
Wednesday night in topping
the Lady Blue Streaks 6-0 in
the district semifinals.
"We did-
Braden River n't get
home last
6 (Tuesday
night) until
Sebring about 1
a.m.," sen-
ior Katie
SBullard
said. "I think a lot of us got
in trouble at school for
falling asleep in class
(Wednesday)."
And so after the long,
cold night and a tired day of
classes, it was back out to
Palmetto to face the second-
seeded Lady Pirates in
weather more conducive to
polar bear polo than 'high
school soccer.
It wasn't in doubt for
long as Braden River scored'
quickly and often, putting
up four first-half goals.
"We just got outclassed
by a very, very good team,"
head coach Steve Ashley
said. "Those are girls that


News-Sun photo by
DAN HOEHNE
Misha Hahn was bundled
against the elements
Wednesday night, but
Braden River was the
wrong kind of heat wave for
the Lady Streaks, topping
them 6-0 to end their sea-
son in the District
Tournament at Palmetto.
have been playing together
for four years, with a num-
ber of them playing travel
ball so it's somewhat what I
expected. But our girls
played hard and disrupted
them some in the second
half."
Things might have gone a
bit differently in. what
Ashely described was an up-
and-dowp season had they,
not been without the ervic-


es of Amanda Grimaldo, lost
mid-season with a knee
injury.
But that showed some
positives as well.
"Misha Hahn had to jump
in there (at goalkeeper) and
had a tough time at first,"
Ashley said. "But by the end
of the season she had
improved tremendously and
it will be good to have her
back next year with the
experience she's gotten."
But he also sees what
needs to be done to make up
for the difference on the
pitch against opponents of
Braden River's quality.
"Highlands County has a
decision to make," he said.
"If we want to move for-
ward, like Lake Placid has
started to "do, we need to
build things up fron under-
neath with the programs for
the younger kids as well as
travel teams'. Or else this is
where we'll be."
In all, it was a promising
year with what turned out to
be a lot of gained experi-
ence by a predominantly
underclassmen squad.
Gone will be the leader-
ship and strong, season-long
efforts of graduating seniors
Lisa Pryzchocki, Bullard,
Ricki Albritton and Maxime
Copley.
But back will be no less
than the fourteen iunderlass-
men that make up the rest of
the roster with the valuable
experience to draw from in
moving forward.

Jean's Hat Trick leads to Sebring win


By JOHN BEDELL
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING It was too
cold Tuesday night for fans
to throw their hats on the
field, but the Blue Seb
Streaks' Washley
Jean scored three
goals in the second
half for a hat trick Lal
and a 3-1 Sebring
victory over LaBelle.
"He turned it up a
notch tonight,"
Sebring head coach Tim
Boulay said.
The Blue Streaks were
down 1-0 at halftime after
the Cowboys' Gabriel
Barron scored off a rebound
in the 17th minute of the

game.
Blue Streak goal keeper
Ryan Cochran could not
hold on to David Antunez's
shot and Barron
ing knocked in the
rebound.
I A direct kick led to
the first Sebring goal
elle in the 48th minute
when Austin Brady's
kick was not con-
trolled by LaBelle
goal keeper Chris
Marroquin and Jean kicked
it in.
Jean's second goal came
off a deflected shot by
Daniel Klatt.
Again the senior was
there to boot in the rebound


for a 2-1 Sebring lead in the
game's 67th minute.
The final goal was set up
by midfielder Troy Talbert
whe he kicked the ball to the
net and Jean headed it in for
his third goal in the 72nd
minute.
Jean declared the third
goal to be his favorite it
was his fourth goal of the
season.
"I've been waiting for that
feeling since the season
started," the smiling senior
said.
Boulay enjoyed the hat
trick but he is concerned
about his team playing with
urgency.
"We've got to start from

the get-go and avoid getting
down in the first half. That
is not going to get it done
next week (district tourna-
ment).
The Blue Streaks travel to
Clewiston on Thursday for
their final regular-season
match.


Sermn m akes short


work of Lady Cats


News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE
The outcome wasn't in doubt for too much longer after the
opening tip was controlled by Shannon Williams Tuesday
night as the Lady Blue Streaks breezed past visiting Hardee
59-25. It was 34-10 by halftime as Sebring's stifling
defense created many scoring opportunities off of turnovers
and the game was played with a running clock by midway
through the third quarter. Mainstays Williams and Hannah
Shoop had their time on the court shortened as both barely
left the bench in the second half, resting them for tough
tournament tasks later in the week. "It got them a chance
to relax and be at full strength against Palmetto and Braden
River later this week," head coach Mike Lee said of their
Thursday and Friday district contests. "And it's always good
to get more girls some time on the floor for experience."
Jerica Moore and Tangie McCullors shared team high scor-
ing totals with 10 each as Moore canned two treys on the
night Shoop and Williams each scored nine on their short-
ened nights.

Terrones who placed the ball
in the back of the net.
Terrones added another
goal a few minutes later as
Resendiz sent a nice pass
across the field as she then
placed the ball in the upper-
left corner for her fourth goal
of the game.
Julie Shrewsbury got in on
the scoring action late in the
game as she got a loose ball
and was able to sneak it past
the goalie.
The Dragons added their
final goal of the game when
Resendiz dribbled the ball
through Panther traffic and
was able to get an open shot


at the goal.
Resendiz boomed the ball
past the goalkeeper for her
second goal of the game.
The Dragons play at mid-
field kept very little to be
done for the defense as goalie
Sarah Thompson had only
three chances for saves on
the night.
"Erica and Yurribia have
been great for us all year,"
said Merlo. "Erica scored her
15th of the year along with
15 assists and Yurribia has
scored 27 goals this season.
The defense is playing great
and I feel like if we play hard
we will win."

Schoonis, Lake Placid

Marine get wins


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
Schoonis team routed the
Seminole Tire team by a
score of 20-9 on a cold but
sunny day in Lake Placid

Don Cunningham and
Mike Jurmu were each 3-for-
4 with a home run, Paul'
Stephenson was 3-for-4 with
a triple and Gary Rankersley

the winners.
Harley Smith, Cliff Brumel
and Gary Van had three hits
each with one of Van's hits
being a triple.
Big Drew Whittaker was 2-
for-3 into left field, in spite
of a large defensive shift to
over load that side of the dia-
mond, in the losing effort for
the Seminole team.
Play on the other field saw
two second-generation
Hensley brothers face off
with Dusty topping the per-
formance of his brother Duke
by getting 4 hits, including 2
home runs, to Duke's 2 dou-
bles.
However, Duke's team,


Lake Placid Marine, came

Lake Placid went on a 14-

ing three consecutive three

With less than a minute
on the clock, both teams
traded buckets moving the
score to 54-54 with less than
a minute to go in the game.
Lake Placid drove the
court and found Andre
Wilson under the basket.
Wilson was fouled on the
shot and wound up splitting
the two free throws.
On the ensuing rebound,
Travalier Sholtz was called
for a foul despite it seeming
that a Panther player was

With the foul, Mulberry's

went to the line where he
sank both ends of the one-

Lake Placid had two more

On the road again, but it didn't need to be P


Now don't get me wrong,
I enjoy heading to other
towns, seeing different
fields, gyms, courts, pools
and tracks of our Highlands
County adversaries.
And it makes.for a nice
extra bit of loot each month
when I turn in my mileage
totals.
But once in a great while,
the trips seem so unneces-
sary.
Granted, part of my cha-
grin was from having to
stand out in frigid tempera-
tures to photograph and
cover the Sebring girls soc-
cer game against Braden
River Wednesday night.
The fact that I had to drive
three hours round trip in
order to stand out in the cold
for two hours added to the
grief.
It made me think of the
"Friends" episode when
Chandler watched his new
girlfriend in a play taking
part in a very steamy scene.
"It's like someone took
my worst nightmare," he.
said. "And charged me $30
to see it."
Now, that particular game,
in the district tournament
being hosted by Palmetto,
there's not a whole lot of
choice.
But it was Tuesday night's
game that I call into question
- Sebring against Avon Park,
in Palmetto.
OK, so Palmetto is the
host high school, giving
them the opportunity to rake
in the big money from all
the other school's fans com-
ing to see their team.


And Another


Thing...
Dan Hoehne
Considering the weather
Tuesday night, other than the
die-hard faithful and various
parents, I'm curious how
much they actually made,
after the overhead costs are
factored in.
Point being, what was the
point of having two teams, -
separated by about 12 miles,
drive 80 miles to play each
other?
Obviously, gas money
would have been saved, as
well as less time taken away
from school with the travel
time being cut by 68 miles.
As. Sebring boys soccer
coach Tim Boulay ques-
tioned when he thought that
his Blue Streaks might also
be matched with the Red
Devils at Palmetto, "Why
don't they just let us flip a
coin and play it either at
Avon Park or Sebring?"
Or if a neutral field is
insisted upon, drive up to
Frostproof, or down to Lake
Placid and still travel less
than one-third the distance
they otherwise would.
Because, as it was, with
Tuesday's first game going
into extra time, pushing the


later game back and then
the later gamegoing extra
time, their arrival time back
home was past 1 a.m.
With the requirement then
being that student-athletes
have to be in school the day
of a game in order to play,
the girls had to head to class
on a scant amount of sleep,
then make the hour and a


half trip back out to
Palmetto to play Wednesday
night.
Not that that would have
made all the difference in
the outcome, but it could
have.
Had Avon Park and
Sebring played here Tuesday
night, they wouldn't have
had to wait on another game,


thus starting on time.
Had they gone to the
triple-overtime shootout that
they did in Palmetto, having
started on time, it still would
have been done at a reason-
able hour, and after a short
trip home, a full night of
sleep after homework was'
done, of course.
And I might have even

DAVID VELEY
Lake Placid head coach

On the ensuing in-bound
play, Wilson received the
ball and seemed to be
hacked on both arms by a
Panther player.
But no whistle was blown
and the game ended with the
Panthers squeaking one out.
"I like the way we battled
down the stretch," said
Veley. "That says a lot about
our team and the group of
guys that we have."
With the loss, the
Dragons moved to 1-2 in
district play with both loss-
es being by one point.
Lake Placid was led on
offense by Wilson who had
15 points while Veley and
Sholtz added 11 each.
Moore managed to dish in
10 more points and YbuYou4
contributed with eight. i

RELIGION


'Stand by

your pastor'
"Stand
by your
pastor" has
great
meanings.
He has
stood by
us, with us
The Bottom and for us,
Line so why is it
so hard for
DeCaris T some of us
Jones Sr. to stand by
him. I can remember not too
long ago we were asking for
someone to stand with us. Well
we have that someone now. So,
I say to you it's past the time
that we should be standing
with, by and for our pastor.
It's time we put aside our
agendas and follow the man of
God that's been assigned and
appointed to lead us. If you feel
that's impossible to do, then
it's time to step aside and let
those here who are willing to
stand by their pastor and move
forward, to do so.
Here are just a few things to
consider.

Our Church Will Stand By
Our Pastor
Our church will stand by our
Pastor, United in faith and
creed, Like a mighty army,
Marching forward indeed.
Our church will stand by our '
Pastor, Always being a house
of prayer, Watching God's mir-
acles flow, Filling us with a
glorious glow.
Our church will stand by our
Pastor, Mentoring our children
and youth, Showing them what
Jesus would do, Teaching them
God's word is true.
Our church will stand by our
Pastor, A happy family of faith,
Shining with purity and
grace, Triumphantly running
the Christian race.

I believe when I walk with
my pastor in Christian mission
I can... visualize his God-
given plans, help actualize his
programs and maximize my
skills in the local church.
I believe when I join my
pastor in worship I can...
anticipate God's presence,
cooperate by being sensitive'
and receptive, and celebrate
God's love and tender care.'
I believe when participate
with my pastor in ministry I
can... assist in utilizing all the
talents God has placed in the
local church, help maximize
opportunities to reach and
teach, and lead workers to real-
ize their value in the life of the
church.
I believe when I pray for my
pastor I can... feel his spirit of
ministry, ask God to bless him
in specific ways, and partner
with him seeking God's guid-
ance and blessings.
We've all said at one time or
Another how much we love our
Pastor. The question is, will
you "stand by your pastor."
And that's "The Bottom Line."

Spencers present gospel concert Sunday


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK A gospel
concert by the Spencers will
be presented at 6 p.m.
Sunday at Community Bible
Church, 1400 County Rd.
17A.
The Spencers recorded
their first album in 1972
with 28 projects to follow.
JB and Barbara, their daugh-
ter Geniece and their two
sons Wade and Kevin, trav-
eled together and spread the
Gospel in song for more
than three decades. When
Barbara was 5 years old, she
started singing in church,
and she learned to play the
guitar when she was 11.
When she met JB, he had
just bought a new Gibson
guitar and was learning to
play it. He was also interest-
ed in singing, and Barbara
sang her way into his heart.
She later taught JB how to
sing harmony, and they
began singing together in
their home church shortly
after they were married.
Their three children learned
to play and sing at a very
early age. Wade plays the
mandolin, lead guitar and
rhythm guitar. Geniece
plays piano and rhythm gui-
tar, and Kevin plays the bass

and rhythm guitar.
God definitely called this
family into the singing min-
istry and has opened doors
for them all across America
and in several foreign coun-
tries. In 1982 Geniece wrote
the classic hit song, "In My
Robe of White," and it was
on the Top 20 charts by the
Spencers and Gold City
Quartet at the same time,
with Gold City taking it to
the number one spot. This
song has been recorded hun-
dreds of times by various
artists.
1987 was the year
Geniece left the road to
raise her family; and for
several years it was a real
struggle for her as her heart
was still with gospel music.


Then in 1991, she and her
husband Ernie Ingold, and
their three children Holli,
Heather and Jared formed
their own family group, The
Ingolds.
' In 1992 son Kevin formed
his own singing group and
record company, Some
Dawning Music. Kevin has
had three number one songs,
"I Heard About A Stone,"
"Twelve Gates," and "The
Blood Is Still There." Each
year Kevin Spencer and
Friends are the host group
for Winter Fest in the
Renaissance Theater in
Mansfield, Ohio.
Wade has a wonderful
solo ministry, and in addi-
tion to his travels he hosts.
The Amish Country Jubilee
in Dover, Ohio each year.
Located in the beautiful
rolling hills of East Central
Ohio, The Amish Country
Jubilee features some of the
best groups in Gospel
Music.
JB and Barbara continue
to sing and travel to about
30 dates a year.

charge, but a freewill offer-
ing will be received.

keep


shrimp

fresh


Delicious and easy. to prepare, shrimp is a
traditional Florida favorite. Publix stores offer
fresh, previously frozen (thawed for customer
convenience), and bagged frozen varieties, so
keep these pointers in mind when handling and
storing shrimp at home.

Fresh or previously frozen shrimp
should be firm, free of strong odor,
and consumed within two days from
time of purchase.
Shrimp purchased frozen should be
consumed by the "best used by"
date on bag.
Never refreeze previously frozen shrimp.
Fresh shrimp may be frozen up to one
month if properly frozen. To properly
freeze shrimp, place in airtight plastic
bag, and fill with enough water to cover
shrimp. Seal and place in freezer.
