"If there is a void in sports pro-
gramming for high school kids,'we
would do whatever we could to try to
offer something for them," said Mike
Martino, executive .director of the
YMCA.
The club has programs for children
as old as 14, including basketball and
soccer.
They could potentially see an
explosion in enrollment, as Sebring


High School alone has 1,600 partici-

The YMCA hosts about
880 children from the ages of 3 to 14
during the year in soccer, but their
total number of participants is still a
far cry from the total participating in
sports at SHS not to mention Avon
Park and Lake Placid.
The high school also offers some
sports that might be hard for local
programs to replace, like football and

While they may have access to a

sheer numbers, no sport tops football.

The accident,'in which he

He died on Tuesday, said

dent while in pursuit Tuesday
afternoon, rear-ending an
older couple in a Ford mini-
van.
The suspect, whose name
is being withheld, was identi-
fied from previous encoun-
ters with the APPD as having
a suspended license.
"Not just one suspension,"
APPD Commander Michael
J. Rowan said. "He carried
several suspensions."
Officer Earl Tilman was
driving on a side street of
South Memorial Drive when
he allegedly recognized the
suspect driving a Ford
Explorer and attempted to
pull him over.

The suspect fled in his
vehicle, turning northbound
on Memorial Drive.
Though exactly what hap-
pened next is under investi-

"The suspect continued to
elude law enforcement and
went to a local apartment
complex and deserted the
vehicle there," Rowan said.
Officers found the aban-
doned Explorer about 20 to
25 minutes later. They did
not try to track the suspect.
"From what I understand
there were a lot of people

Rowan said, "which could

County admits to

excluding public records


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING County
Attorney Ross Macbeth filed
a response this week admit-
ting to allegations that public
records were excluded from a
recent public records request.
Capt. Preston Colby of
Florida Public Safety filed
the lawsuit on Jan. 5 against
the Highlands County Board
of County Commissioners,
and several county staff
members claiming that the
county planning department
created two different reports
on a zoning request made in
July 2005.
Colby names the county
commissioners as a whole as
well as Chairperson Barbara
Stewart, County
Administrator Michael J.
Wright, Assistant County
Administrator Ricky Helms,
Records Management Officer
Gloria Rybinski and Planning
Director James Polatty as
individual defendants in
three different counts of
either denying Colby's
records requests or claiming
exemption to notes and e-
mails.
According to Colby's com-
plaint, the original staff rec-
ommendation was favorable
to allowing a request for a
rezoning change from agri-
cultural to two family
dwelling for 14 acres along
Sparta Road.
The lawsuit further states
that that recommendation
was later changed to a nega-
tive recommendation after
Polatty, former county
administrator Carl E. Cool,
and Commissioner Guy
SMaxcy "unlawfully influ-
enced JP (James Polatty) to
change the staff report to
deny the rezoning request."


Colby's complaint also
states that "when Plaintiff
(Colby) was allowed to
inspect Planning and Zoning
Hearing 1807 file the only
staff recommendation ... was
a staff report recommending
denial of the rezoning
change."
Later Polatty denied
knowing about any "favor-
able" staff recommendation,
said Colby, although tran-
scripts of the July meeting
clearly show Polatty dis-
cussing alternate recommen-
dations from staff.
Macbeth admits in his
response, that "defendants
admit allegations of para-
graph 16 of the complaint,"
which states "that when
Plaintiff (Colby) was
allowed to inspect Planning
and Zoning Hearing 1807
file the only staff report in
the file in the care, custody
and control of JP was a staff
report recommending the
denial of the rezoning
change..."
Colby's lawsuit also
claimed that Polatty "denied
knowing about any 'favor-
able' staff recommendation
on this matter and denied that
any such public record exist-
ed."
In his response to the law-
suit, Macbeth wrote that on
the original rezoning request,
Polatty did revise the staff
report to recommend denial,
and pointed this out at the
July 26, 2005 county com-
mission meeting.
The filing denies Colby's
allegation that Maxcy
improperly intervened and
"influenced" Polatty to
change the staff recommen-
dation from favorable to
unfavorable for the initial
rezoning request.

Highlands County driest in the state


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com,
SEBRING Last year hundreds of acres
were scorched in the Henscratch Road area
in February, and with the recent frost, veg-
etation is just as dry.
The 17 wildfires the area has seen so far
in January matches the number for 2008,
but 30 percent more acreage was effected.
"The 2009 year started off the same but
the difference this year is the lack of rain,"
Melissa Yunas, wildlife mitigation special-
ist with the Florida Division of Forestry,
said in an e-mail. "Rainfall predictions are
slim in 2009 and we have been very lucky
so far that we have not seen high winds."
When gauged by the Keetch-Byram
drought index, Highlands County is the dri-
est county in the state.
Yunas said it was due in part to the lack
of rainfall over the pas nths.
The Sebring A Weather
Network indicates tha unty has
received 3.37 inches of ra .since October.
"This lack of rain along with the recent
cold weather has left our wildland areas
extremely dry and prone to wildfires," she
said. "Right now is very dangerous for

Skipper

dies from

injuries
Continued from page 1A
there is a possible vehicular
homicide charge which is a
third-degree felony," said
Houchin, who was speaking
generally and was unaware of
the details of the accident.
"The death would raise the
penalties substantially if there
is a criminal case there."
The semi reportedly ran a
red light while carrying six
passengers, including chil-
dren ranging in age from 7 to
15.
Wood did not say if this
indicated reckless driving.
The semi driver, Oneil James
Grenier, 47, of Avon Park, has
not been charged at this time.
"We will have to let the
traffic homicide deputies
complete their investigation
and we will determine what
charges there will be," she
said. "It's an ongoing investi-
gation. Charges are pending."
Just because Grenier
allegedly ran the red light at
Avon Park Cutoff Road does-
n't mean he will definitely
face charges.
"Running a stop light does-
n't make it reckless driving,"
Houchin said, adding that it
depends on the circum-
S stances, like if it was some-
thing the driver didn't see.
"You could be looking at a
truly unfortunate accident. It
depends on the facts of the
case."
The accident occurred at
10:30 p.m. when the semi
struck the left rear door of
Skipper's Ford Explorer,
which was headed west on
Avon Park Cutoff Road.
Skipper's passenger, Edna
Ward Faath, 27, of Sebring,
was taken to LRMC with
minor injuries but was later
released.
A total of five people in the
semi were injured.
SOn Nov. 6, about 3.5 miles
north from where Craig
Skipper's accident occurred,
his wife; Kristel Skipper was
killed when she veered into
the grass median and lost
control of her GMC sports
utility vehicle after overcor-
recting.
The car rolled over and
Skipper, who was not wearing
a seat belt, was ejected.
Craig Skipper served for 24
years in law enforcement
around the state and was also
an emergency medical techni-
cian.
He is survived by his nine
children, a sister, two
nephews and several grand-
children.
The family will receive
friends from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.
on Friday at the Union
Congregational Church with
the service at 10 a.m.


Credit card theft
ring busted
Continued from page 2A
($2,099.99) and a computer
case ($22.99). One minute
later, the victim's card was
used to buy $600 in gift cards
from the same store.
Circuit City video surveil-
lance allegedly showed
Rodriguez-Zuluaga, along
with another Hispanic female
and two Hispanic males, mak-
ing the illegal purchases.
The arrest report said
Rodriguez-Zuluaga main-
tained custody of the victim's
credit card and ID while the
other suspects helped pick out
the items and carry them out
of the store. The investigation
turned up similar cases


involving the same individu-
als throughout the central
Florida area, the report said.
On May 16, the Altamonte
Springs Police Department
arrested two suspects in a
similar case, one of which
turned out to be Rodriguez-
Zuluaga, who was identified
from the surveillance video.
Rodriguez-Zuluaga was also
the one who forged the vic-
tim's signature on the credit
card receipts.
She was being held on
$15,000 bail Wednesday.

APPD officer's pursuit

ends in accident


Continued from page 1A
"For as young as he is
he's doing a fantastic job,"
APPD Chief Matthew
Doughney said. "He has a
grasp of police work and is
doing very well."
With more than a decade
in a APPD uniform, Rowan
has seen a few vehicle pur-
suits on the streets of Avon
Park from behind the
wheel.
"As the pursuing officer
you have to take a lot of
things into consideration;
use a lot of judgment," he
said.
The time of day, vehicle
traffic, the weather, pedes-
trian traffic, and the type of
crime that was committed
are all things that need to
be considered in a matter of
seconds.
"Does the crime out-
weigh the risk of putting
anyone else in jeopardy?"


Rowan added. "There is a
lot running though your
mind in the pursuit. I've cut
them off just as quickly as
I've started them as well."
All those factors will be
reviewed during the inves-
tigation and could result in
sanctions against the officer
if he is found to be operat-
ing outside of department
or state policy.
Tilman could face any-
thing from a verbal repri-.
mand to a suspension, but.
Rowan said at this time it.
appears his officer was not.
in the wrong.
"From what I understand,
it appears Officer Tilman
was within the guidelines,"
he said. "Our biggest con-
cern was that no one was
hurt."
Rowan estimated the
damage o the APPD cruis-
er to be between $4,500 and
$5,000.

the most students.
"We keep more on a team
and we don't make any
cuts," she said. "We have
80 to 100 (students)
depending on the year."
Any cuts to the sports
budget could have far
reaching effects on what
appears to be either a
majority or a strong minor-
ity of SHS students not
to mention the burden of
travel to Sebring for access
to these programs for the
Lake Placid or Avon Park
students.
School board member
Wally Randall brought up
the idea of cutting the dis-
trict's athletic programs at a


budget workshop held Jan.
20.
He-estimated it could
save the district about
$500,000.
In December, school
Superintendent Wally Cox
said he anticipated between'
$6 and $14 million would
have to be cut from the
Highlands County School:
District budget for the com-
ing school year.
Also on the table is a
revamped teacher schedule
that would result in 30
fewer teachers at area
schools and a district-wide
pay cut.
The district is currently
funded to the tune of $90
million.

I'm a 13-year-old boy who
has lived in Highlands
County for all my life.
Around here, there are a lot
of retirees. That's not a bad
thing, but I've noticed that
there is very little interaction
between the younger genera-
tions and the older genera-
tions.
Normally, the younger
generations would simply
say "Oh, why should we
learn from them? All they do
is waste their time!" Of
course, many of the older
folk would probably be look-
ing at us and say "What do
they care what we know? All
they do waste their time on
these new-fangled fancy
computers!"
Of course, these somewhat
unfounded opinions do not
spawn friendship between
the two generations.
Now I realize that this is
somewhat a stereotype, but
if I'm not mistaken, this is
the general feeling. But there
is an exception to this: The
Highlands Gem and Mineral
Club.
I attended the meeting
Tuesday night along with the
rest of my family. We all
loved it! I was able to tap
into the wisdom of others,
and grow my knowledge of

gems, minerals and rocks. A
9-year-old boy even made a
presentation about opals!
It's pretty exciting to find
other people who are even
more passionate about stone
collecting, polishing, and
cutting than I am. They are a
great resource to learn from,
and after the presentations, I
was able to get help identify-
ing many of my rocks from a
man with great experience. I
was also able to buy a nice
piece of petrified wood!
I have been very interest-
ed in rock collecting and
stone cutting, and the
Highlands Gem and Mineral
Club is the perfect place for:
me to grow my interest, col-i
lection, and knowledge. It is
a portal of knowledge filled
with enthusiastic members,
young and old, for anyone to
learn from.

home-schooled. The News-
Sun encourages young people
to write about their opinions
and share them with our
readers.

TODAY'S LETTERS


Is buying golf course
such a good idea?
Editor:
Reference Spring Lake
Improvement District (SLID)
proposal to buy golf course:
There appear to be few
errors in the published data.
According to documents
obtained from SLID in a
public records request, the
bonded indebtedness that
would possibly be incurred
for completion of the Water
Control Plan (WCP) is actu-
ally $5,780,000 less the
$300,000 for the pump sta-
tion upgrades, which are
already completed. Some of
these numbers do change by
version of financials.
The WCP items will still
have to be completed
whether the course is pur-
chased or not.
The projected cost of the
course is $3,400,000 plus
operating inventory and
other items. This makes the
total basic overall purchase
cost to Spring Lake residents
closer to $9,000,000. These
figures do not include oper-
ating expense, permitting,
loss of assessment and tax
revenue, etc, etc, etc, ad
infinitum.
SLID has not examined
any other possibility beyond
the golf course purchase
although some supervisors
have recommended that this
be done. The objective of the
WCP is to define that which
is necessary to provide
drainage and water storage
for the Spring Lake subdivi-
sion. It is not the vehicle
whereby the district can
expand its sphere of influ-
ence or scope of operations.
The enabling legislation
for SLID is very clear. It is a
drainage district.
The fact that the course
was sold two years ago, dur-
ing our period of highly
inflated real estate values,
for double its current asking
price, is completely immate-
rial to the current proposal.
As with anything a govern-

ment tries to do, that maybe
appears to be less than logi-
cal, one should always ask
"why."
Currently, if Spring Lake
residents (or for that matter,
anyone else) wants to play
golf, they go to the course,
pay fees and play. If SLID
buys the course the only
thing that will change is that
Spring Lake residents will
now be totally subsidizing
its cost, maintenance, opera-
tion, employees, etc, etc.
And please remember,
they will still be paying for
the WCP recommended
items. So the golf course
expenses will be added to
that.
If purchasing this course
is such a good idea, why
don't the district manager,
the supervisors and other
supporters form a group and
buy it themselves? They
could recoup part of their
expenses by selling the
"acres of unmown ground,
which could be used perhaps
by moving a green or the
entire hole."
In summary, there are far
more questions asked than
have been answered. A pub-
lic records request to SLID
is suggested if you really
want to know what is hap-
pening. Make sure you ask
for everything, not just the
little book they are keeping.

State Farm should
leave altogether
Editor:
With the news that State
Farm will be canceling all
home insurance policies in
the next two years, our
Florida Insurance
Commissioner needs to
inform State Farm that if
you will not insure our
homes, you will also not
insure our autos, RVs, boats
nor provide any type of
insurance product and leave
the state of Florida perma-
nently.
Any takers out there? I am
a long-term State Farm poli-
cy holder but my search for
a new insurer for my home
and vehicle starts today.

Each of us should
take an individual
inventory
Editor:
We have different opin-
ions about why our economy
is in such a bad state, but it
behooves each of us to take
our individual inventory.
It seems to me, when we
go in debt, we are using
what belongs to someone
else. There are things that
we need the use of credit for,
but even then, it is our
responsibility to use com-
mon sense and not over


indulge. When we buy
things, we know we can't
afford and sometimes don't
even need, we are asking for
trouble.
Now our government is
trying to fix everyone's
problems. It will never work.
The Bible tells us we reap
what we sow. There are con-
sequences to the decisions
we make in life. Many are
beginning to reap and I
stress beginning. When our
nation over extends, that is
even worse which they
already have.
Strange as it may seem,
we seem to have people who
don't realize that we are the
government and our taxes is
where the money comes
from or, at least, that's the
way it was intended to be.
However, our government
has even gotten into the bor-
rowing business. I fear this
will bring destruction to all.
God has so blessed us that
we are a spoiled people and
unless we exercise I
Chronicles 7:14, I'm afraid
we are headed for trouble;
this nation can't remember
when times were not so
good.
There are a few left who.
can remember what hard
times are like.
I do challenge each of you
to read I Chronicles 7:14 and
put it into action; pray that
God will give you wisdom
how to use what He blesses
you with.
Living above one's means
will never bring happiness;
only trusting in God will do
that.
Matthew 6:33 tells us to
trust Him and our needs will
be met not our wants, but
as we read Solomon's expe-
rience, we see, because he
asked for wisdom to lead his
people, he became the
world's richest man.
Just trust Him, you will
never lose. You will have
difficulty, but He will always
be there to see you through.

The Department of Environmental Protec-
tion gives notice of its intent to issue a permit
revision for, Triple G Dairy, to be issued to
Goolsby-Incorporated. The proposed permit
revision approves the new Comprehensive
Nutrient Management Plan (CNMP), and au-
thorizes a herd Increase of 2,450 milk cows at
the Triple G Dairy, located at 2175 Triple G
Road, Sebring, Florida 33870.
The Intent to issue and application file are
available for public Inspection during normal
business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Mon-
day through Friday, except legal holidays, at
the FDEP Southeast District office, located at
400 North Congress Avenue, Suite 200, West
Palm Beach, FL 33401.
The Department will Issue the permit with
the attached conditions unless a timely peti-
tion for an administrative hearing is filed un-
der Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes, within fourteen days of receipt of no-
tice. The procedures for petitioning for a hear-
ing are set forth below.
A person whose substantial Interests are
affected by the Department's proposed per-
mitting decision may petition for an adminis-
trative proceeding (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The pe-
tition must contain the. information set forth
below and must be filed (received by the
clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boule-
vard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000.
Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Admin-
istrative Code, a person may request enlarge-
ment of the time for tiling a petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing. The request must be filed
(received by the clerk) in the Office of General
Counsel before the end of the time period for
filing a petition for an administrative hearing.
Petitions filed by any persons other than
those entitled to written notice under Section
120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be filed
within fourteen days of publication of the no-
tice or within fourteen days of receipt of the
written notice, whichever occurs first. Under
Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however,
any. person who has asked the Department for
notice of agency action may file a petition
within fourteen days of receipt of such notice,
regardless of the date of publication.
Thepetitioner shall mail a copy of the peti-
tion to the applicant at the address indicated
above at the time of filing. The failure of any
person to file a petition within fourteen days
of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of
that person's right to request an administra-
tive determination (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any
subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initi-


ated by another party) will be only at the dis-
cretion of the presiding officer upon the filing
of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-
106.205, Florida Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts


1050 L
on which the Department's action is based
must contain the following information:
(a) The name, address, and telephone
number of each petitioner; the name, address,
and telephone number of the petitioner's rep-
resentative, if any; the Department permit
identification number and the county in which
the subject matter or activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and when each pe-
titioner received notice of the Department ac-
tion;
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's
substantial interests are affected by the De-
partment action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of
material fact. If there are none, the petition
must so indicate;
(e) IA statement of facts that the petitioner
contends warrant reversal or modification of
the Department action;
(f) A concise statement of the ultimate
facts alleged, as well as the rules and statutes
which entitle the petitioner to relief; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the
petitioner, stating precisely the action that the
petitioner wants the Department to take.
Because the administrative hearing proc-
ess is designed to formulate final agency ac-
tion, the filing of a petition means that the De-
partment's final action may be difference from
the position taken by it in this notice. Persons
whose substantial interests will be affected by
any such final decision of the Department
have the right to petition to become a party to
the proceeding, in accordance with the re-
quirements set forth above.
Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida
Statutes, is not available for this proceeding.

Dragons see red in



season-ender


News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE
Antonio Torres had what appeared to be a lead-shaving goal
in the second half, but an offsides ruling disallowed it.


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
News-Sun sportswriter
Very few times in sports
do you experience the type
of finish that the Lake
Placid boy's soccer team
endured in the opening
round of the District 8-3A
tournament against the
Mulberry Panthers Tuesday
evening.
Things proceeded much
like any other soccer game
until the 10-minute mark of
the second half, when head
Green Dragon coach Josh
Virkler was given a yellow
card and then seconds later


a red card.
Being that Virkler
received a red card and the
Dragons didn't travel with
an assistant coach, they
were forced to forfeit the
game bringing an abrupt
end to their season.
"We made some rough
mistakes early," comment-
ed Virkler. "We looked to
have corrected those in the
second half, but I made a
bad mistake and couldn't
keep my mouth closed."
In the opening minutes
of the first half the Dragons
played well, getting several


looks at the goal but
weren't able to connect on
any scoring chances.
With only four minutes
off the clock, Mulberry
picked up their first goal of
the game. Diego Medina
blasted a shot that rico-
cheted off the top post and
was put back by Kody
Glass.
At the 27-minute mark
Mulberry added their sec-
ond goal of the game as AJ
Schuh drove down the
right side of the field draw-

Blue Streaks tale proud defeat

PALMETTO Maybe
Palmetto will 'know better
than to schedule a district foe
twice in the early stages of
the season and not see them
again until the district tour-
nament.
The host Tigers did come
out victorious, but the
Sebring soccer squad pushed
them to the limit in the 2-1,
double-overtime, District 10-
4A Semifinal win.
"The only loss they've had
this year was to a 5A school,"
Blue Streak head
coach Tim Boulay. Palm
said. "Other than that,
they just rolled right
through.teams on their
schedule." Seb:
Among those were
4-1 and 6-0 wins over
Sebi6rig but those
ga were in the sea-
sons' early days, the last
meet.i ig being November 24.
Th~ vas a vastly different
teani the Tigers now' faced,
though the early going
seemed to portend a repeat of
the earlier matches.
Just a minute-and-a-half
into the contest, Palmetto, got
one past Blue Streak keeper
Ryan Cochran for a quick-
strike score., ;:
But 'from there, for more
than 93 i : gar' e minutes,

defense would hold the
Tigers in check.
And it was just 13 minutes
after the opening score that
leading-scorer Buck
Schroeder evened things up.
Firing a shot, the ball was
deflected by the Palmetto
keeper, who had come
etto out a fair distance to
get it.
The ball leaked just
past and Schroeder
ing alertly continued by
I the keeper, coralled
the loose ball and
fired it in to knot
things a 1-1.
Both sides would have
their chances through the rest
of regulation and into the
Overtimess.
But strong, aggresive
defense on both sides didn't
allow many clear shots, and
those were tended to be the
respective keepers.
"We know how good
Palmetto is and how we'd
have to play to have a
chance," Boulay. said. "We

double overtime.


And Another Thing...
Dan Hoehne

Oh yeah, the

Super Bowl
That week off with no foot-
ball almost caused me to forget
that we've got the big one in a
couple days.
Now that I remembered, I
suppose it is time to give the
match-up a look and come up
with the 'columnist prediction
that is likely going to be
nowhere near accurate.'
On one hand, you've got the
Pittsburgh Steejers, rich in win-
ning tradition, going for their
sixth Super Bowl win.
They carry on in the typical
Steeler style stalwart, hard-
hitting defense, a strong, con-
sistent running attack and a
mid-range passing game that
can, at times, go deep.
The Arizona Cardinals have a
tradition too, just not a winning
one.
The last time the terms win-
ning and Cardinals were used in
the same sentence, pro-footbalf
wise, was more than 60 years and
two cities ago..
So off the radar have the
Cardinals been, I'm sure many
assumed they had simply headed
from St. Louis to Arizona to do
what so many others do retire.
Appropriately, their startling
run this season was lead by a
quarterback who is one of the
NFL's 'elder' statesmen.
They feature a defense (I
think), a highlight-reel, high-
octane passing game and an
inconsistent running game.
It seems like a march-up that
could'provide for some enter-
taining moments, but will be
very one-sided.
A couple big plays from Kurt
Warner to Larry Fitzgerald and
Anquon Boldin, but with the
Steelers dominating time of
possession, grounding up
yardage and a couple scores,
with their defense laying out
some big hits and getting a
score themselves.
I'm usually one to blindly go
for the underdog, I am a Cub
fan after all.
But for a change I'm sticking
with the favorite Pittsburgh
28, Arizona 12.


Paihers get ready to roar

AVON PARK Coming
off its' third 30-win season
and playoff appearance in
the last five years, the South
Florida Community College
baseball program has
reached a point of expecting
success as it strives for
more.
"We are very pleased, but
not satisfied, with where our
program is right now," head
coach Rick Hitt said. "We
expect players to expect
success when they arrive-
here and focus on the
process of achieving that."
The process gets under-
way today, as the team starts
the season with four games
in four days, beginning with
a date at Lake Sumter a
part of the schedule the typ-
ifies the docket for the sea-
son.
"We have a very good
conditioning plan to help
them physically," Hitt said.
"But the biggest challenge
is the consistent approach
from the mental aspect of
the length of the season and
the four-to-seven games per
week that we play."
Fortunately, there are 13
sophomores dotting the ros-


ter as returning players who
have the experience of often
intense schedule.
And an invaluable part of
that experience can be
found on the mound, as for-
mer Blue Streak Chaz Abeln
'and former Red Devil
Johnny Sedlock return at the
top of the rotation the pair
accounted for 15 of the
team's 30 wins a year ago.
A potentially big addition
to the staff will be 6-foot-8
southpaw Andrew Barbosa,
who tries to come back from
a strong freshman year after
missing last season with
injury.
Offensively, last season
was hit-or-miss for the
Panthers, with plenty of
power but also the home run
counterbalance, strike outs.
"We hit some balls out of
the ballpark, but we also set
a school record in strike
outs," Hitt said. "When we
did not hit the ball out, we
had a tough time scoring."
But a combination of
returning players and some
newcomers hope to provide
a little more balance.
"Austin Gaines (.280, 7
HR, 33 RBI) and Gerry
Neufang (.338, 12 HR, 38
RBI) should get protection

get the 09 season going.


in the order from transfer
(and former Blue Streak)
Ryan Williams and Abeln,"
Hitt said. "If freshmen
Ethan Lovell, Greg Smith,
Tom Sicking and sopho-
more (former Red Devil)
Matt Devlin can play the
roll of table-setters, we have
a chance to do some things
offensively."
Each new season brings
hope and an eagerness to get
going after weeks of prac-
tice, and the dawn of this
SFCC season is at hand.


"We have been at it for
about three weeks in prac-
tice and I've seen a lot of
positive things," Hitt said.
"It is time for us to go play
and see how we stack up."
After today's contest in
Leesburg, the team returns
home tomorrow for a Jan.
31 match-up with Palm
Beach before going to
Central Florida in Ocala
Sunday and meeting Webber
International Monday at
Panther Field.


Schoonis holds on


for win over Yates


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID In a
game where the lead see-
sawed over the last four
innings, Schoonis came out
on top of Michelle Yates
Insurance by a 23-20 score in
Lake Placid Senior Softball
league play on Wednesday,
Jan. 29 at the Lake June ball
fields.
Manager Dusty Hensley
did about all he could do to
try to get the win for Yates,
making five outstanding
plays at the rover position in
the field and going 4-for-4
with a triple at bat.
He was supported by Fred
Cooper and Dave Holloway
with some great fielding
plays and 3-for-4 each at bat,
with Cooper getting a three-
run home run.
That did not, however,
prove to be enough as the
Schoonis Family Restuarant
team had a well-balanced
offense with manager Dorin
Quigg, Howard Cunningham,
Mike Jurmu, Sean Kilduff
and Paul Stephenson all get-
ting three hits each.
Two of Jurmu's hits were
home runs and Bob Fox
added a home run as well.
Play on the other field also


saw outstanding plays afield
as Central Security squeaked
out an 11-10 victory over
Seminole Tire.
The Tiremen's manager,
Carol Walsh, said that it
seemed that every where
Seminole hit the ball,
Richard Rivera was there to
make a diving catch and
throw runners out.
Playing six different posi-
tions, one inning at a time,
and with his speed and the
uncanny way of being in the
right place for most batters,
he was there to make the
plays.
At bat, manager Charlie
Quinn, Jim Hensley and
Dana Hurlbut had three hits
each for the Security men.
For Seminole Tire, Ed
Engler made two great, run-
saving catches in the field
and, along with Tom Walsh,
had three hits at the plate.
The Central Security and
Schoonis teams lead the
league with records of 4-2
followed by Lake Placid
Marine at 3-3, Seminole Tire
at 3-4 and Yates Insurance at
2-5.
The 20-game season will
continue through March.

play."
But the Tigers gaudy
record is as it is for a reason,
and soon the hope of playing
for the District
Championship would go by
the wayside for the Blue
Streaks.
With 4:14 left to go in the
second overtime, before it
went to the penalty-kick
stage, Palmetto's Bobby
Stevenson fired a shot off his
left foot from the front of the


net, just inside the left edge
of the goal for the winner.
"I'm so proud of every-
one," senior Daniel Klatt
said. "It's always hard when
you lose, especially with this
being my last year. But we
had a great season and I'm so
glad I was a part of this
team."
Asked how the Tigers were
compared to their early-sea-
son-match-ups, Klatt thought
for a moment.
"They're real good," he


said. "But they didn't seem
that different from when we
played them before."
Which is a sentiment that
is certainly not shared by
Palmetto this night.
Only a handful of teams
end their seasons with any-
thing other than a loss.
But as a testament to the
vast strides the Blue Streaks
made this season, ending it
like this, battling this power-
house to a near standstill is
not at all a bad way to go.

RELIGION


Tebow's talent and testimony


It has been just three
weeks since Tim Tebow
and the Florida Gators
won their second national
championship title in
three years. The talented
quarterback Tebow led his
team in a tight game to a
decisive victory over
Timeless Oklahoma.
When I turned on the
Treasures game, I was surprised and
Luke excited to see something
pKnickerbocker else displayed on the
field. It was, in fact, the
unashamed testimony of Mr. Tebow. Visible
for every camera shot in Tim Tebow's face,
was the markings of John 3:16 in white let-
ters over a black backdrop underneath his
eyes. After the game, he placed the, stickers
on his Offensive Player of the Game trophy.
When given the microphone at the award
ceremony, he was quick to give thanks to his
Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Unfortunately, there are many who may
despise this young talented athlete for his
public display of his personal beliefs. It is
true that we all believe and stand for some-
thing; some purposefully, and others by
default. Some honor God while others take
God's name in vain. Some praise God; and
others freely use foul language. Regardless,
it is fascinating to see how only few get
offended when vulgarity and false religion
are promoted, while the Bible and 10
Commandments are removed from public
places. But when someone like Tebow open-
ly confesses truth in the Bible, people get
angry. This is just another sign that sin and
error is tolerated while truth is rejected by
the world.
Tebow has a bold testimony because
Christ has made a difference in his life.
Football is an interest of his, but Christianity
is most important. He has already taken mis-
sion trips to Thailand, Croatia and the
Philippines, where he has helped feed chil-


dren and lepers. He is in essence, following
the footsteps of his father, who runs an
orphanage in the Philippines. It is a breath of
fresh air to see a 21-year-old man follow the
path that his Father in heaven has given and
not step down to the scoffers of the media.
How about you? Who do you represent?
What do you stand for? Have you come to
understand the message of John 3:16? It
says, For God so loved the world, that he
gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in him should not perish, but have
everlasting life. Victory is only found in the
Saviour Jesus Christ. If you know Christ in a
personal way, share Him with those you
love. Be like Tim Tebow and truly triumph
in Christ and have a testimony to share.
Don't be ashamed to stand for Christ and to
stand out in the crowd.

Luke Knickerbocker is the pastor of Bethel Baptist
Church in Lake Placid, 216 E. Park St. E-mail
