SEBRING Last week

Smith seemed to think the /

"'We think there is a fairly

Review shows

City of Sebring is

financially sound
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
'SEBRING Representatives from the
accounting firm of Wicks, Brown, Williams &
Company briefed the city council on the results
of the city's annual audit at Tuesday night's
regular meeting.
"Overall I think the city's on very sound
financial footing," John Davis, a certified pub-
lic account with the firm, said as he opened his
Powerpoint presentation. But he warned that
with the economic crisis the city would have to
continue to be financially cautious.
Currently he gave the city a good rating,
meaning there was a reasonable assurance that
its figures were accurate. Davis explained that a
reasonable assurance is a high rating. The only
higher status is absolute assurance and that is
unattainable for all practical purposes.
The audit broke the city's financial statement
into sections. First there was a review of those
city departments that make money.

County commissioners voted
6-0 Tuesday to allow Animal

firearms.
According to Animal
Control Director Darryl
Scott, the county had been
fortunate in the past because
some staff also served as
part-time sheriff's deputies
and had access to
firearms. '0

the case now. mysS

showed concern,
including local supei

"I wanted to hear

It does not have the
"aggressive" part in there.
Why are we doing it now, and
why do we need to change?"
Garcia asked.
According to Scott, no one
is currently working part
time for the sheriff's depart-
ment, and there is no one cur-
rently with access in an offi-
cial capacity to take care of
the sometimes hard task of
putting an animal out of suf-
fering or taking care of a dis-
eased and dangerous animal.

Sebring in good fiscal shape

financial footing," Davis said.
Its operating revenues have
consistently outpaced operat-
ing expenses.
The same is true of the
water and wastewater fund,
although extensive repairs
and the capital spending on
new water meters a few years
ago meant that expenses in
2008 were greater than
income. Davis said, however,
'that was a temporary spike,
and that income was already
* trending up again.
Only the golf course poses
problems, with operating
expenses outpacing income.
One result is the drawing
down of the course's reserve
fund, from $400,000 to
$100,000.
The golf' course manager,
Jim Higgins, was praised for
creating a revised budget that
was in keeping with the short-
fall.
The council was reminded
the golf course presents a spe-
cial challenge in that there is a
delicate line between saving
maintenance funds,and hav-
ing a course in good enough
shape that golfers want to
play it.


The government side of the
ledger, that is the city's finan-
cials that come from tax dol-
lars or government grants, is
also in good shape.
The general fund has grown
consistently since 2005, and
now stands at roughly $8 mil-
lion. That figure includes a
health insurance fund cushion
of $960,000.
"The general fund looks
very positive," Davis said.
Another piece of good
news was how ,.the city health
insurance expenses have sta-
bilized over the last three
years, remaining relatively
flat since 2006.
For example, in 2007 health
insurance represented 5.7 per-
.cet of the city's operating
budget. In 2008 it was 6.6 per-
cent, considered a negligible
increase.
Regarding the city's most
significant expense -
salaries, wages and benefits
paid to its employees -
Davis said Sebring has kept a
reasonable balance. The pay-
roll has risen from $4.6 mil-
lion in 2007 to $5 million in
2009. That is an increase of
1.9 percent, from 49.1 percent
of the operating budget to 51
percent.

mates more than 700,000
acres in the state are infest-
ed with it.
Just as bad is the fact that
the plant can grow to 30
feet, has a broad, very dense
canopy that shades out other
plants but is a poor habitat
for native birds and small
animals. Under the green
exterior, the branches
become wo6dy and grow
into a twisted thicket that
barely allows for air flow.
The seeds, however, are a
favorite source of food for'
many types of birds, which
is another negative instead
of a positive.
The established plants
can live for up to 30 years,
and the seeds are viable for
up to two months. They
have high gestation rates
and are spread far ajd wide.
by the birds that eat them.
The digestive process actu-
ally helps the seeds to ger-
minate.
More over, the plant has
no natural enemies in
Florida, is highly drought
tolerant, and has no nutri-


tional requirements. It can
also survive in an aquatic
setting, choking off canal or
lake banks.
Add to that the fact that
new plants can sprout from
root stock, even after a fire,
and the Brazilian pepper
turns out to be a formidable
opponent.
G. G. Warren, a master
gardener who volunteers at
the Highlands County
Extension Service, told of
how he planted Brazilian
peppers as a hedgerow
when he first arrived in
Miami in 1968. "I did my
share of spreading the
things," Warren said with a
rueful laugh. "The birds
spread the seeds all over the
'neighborhood. They like the
seeds but don't completely
digest them. Now I pull up
and destroy every pepper I
can."-
In doing that, he cau-
tioned, gardeners should be
very careful to remove all of
the root and to not acciden-
tally spread the seeds them-
selves.

'big ones.
"The commissioner sought
our input and ended up with
specifics for what (he) needs
from Washington," Cox said.
"It was a step in the right
direction. We know a little
more than we knew before."
The group of superintend-
ents spent the first two hours
of their meeting with Smith
and another two hours dis-
cussing ways to address the
'impending budget cuts.
"Everybody shared a little
about certain things they
were looking at in their dis-
7 trict," Cox said. "Most of it
centered around personnel ...
- each was taking a little dif-
ferent approach. I don't know
'if there was anything that
was like 'wow;' I think most
of it we had considered."
There were a number 'of
"potential budget reductions"
listed on a sheet handed out
by the Brevard County
Superintendent that Cox pro-


vided to the News-Sun. They
included' eliminating some
varsity sports programs,
deferring bus replacement,
elimination of 87 district
level personnel and 362
teachers, reducing technolo-
gy allocation to schools by
50 percent, and eliminating
middle school and high
school junior varsity sports
programs.
Brevard County hqs rough-
ly 100 schools including
eight charter schools.
Highlands County institut-
ed a "pay to play", fee at the
middle school for athletics
last year, and board member
Wally Randall has suggested
the board look into the idea
of eliminating sports pro-
grams at the high school.
Positions at the district
office are on the chopping
block, as are teachers jobs.
"There are a lot of school
districts looking at the sec-
ondary schedules; kind of
like what we are looking at,"'
Cox said.


The local schedule change
would result in 35 fewer mid-
dle and high school teachers,
or about five at each school.
With the state Legislature
back in session this week,
Cox will know more about
the state and national rules in


the coming weeks.
"By then we will have the
federal questions ironed out
and the state picture ironed
out and we will know our tar-
get," he said.
, "None of these decisions
are easy."

Audit details county's

problems with fuel pumps


Continued from page 1A
an assigned user key, a
vehicle/equipment key and
the odometer reading to
obtain fuel.
Even with FuelMaster,
according to the 26-page
report, the internal controls
restricting access to county
fuel pumps were found to
be inadequate.
Another security prob-
lem pointed but by the
audit included the fact that
some user keys associated
with terminated employees
were not deactivated and
were still being used as of
Jan. 23 to dispense fuel,
and that there were multi-
ple keys for single vehicles..
The report also showed
that there were times when
the FuelMaster controls
were basically turned off
for long periods of time,
leaving no way of knowing
who got, fuel, and how
much they took.
"Further review of trans-
actions in the FuelMaster
System indicated that inter-
nal controls had been man-
ually overridden three sep-
arate occasions since June
1, 2008. In each instance
the pump remained in man-
ual override for several
weeks. It is unknown how
much fuel (if any) was dis-
pensed during the time
when the controls were
manually overridden," the
report stated.
The report also cited
"several issues with the
reported data," including
false entries into account-
ing reports.
"Beginning and ending
inventory was incorrectly
reported during the entire
three year period reported,"
the report said.
The report also stated
that numbers were some-
times plugged in the system
in order to make balances


work out.
"...it was noted that the
Payables/Receivables
Department made unsup-
ported 'entries into the
Inventory System in order
to all fuel disbursement to
post," the audit stated.
Another control weak-
ness pointed out by the
audit involved improper
calculations of the quarter-
ly fuel tax refunds, money
that the county may have to
pay back to the state.
Because mistake on end-
ing inventory calculations,
improperly calculating and
reporting refund requests to
the state,' and errors con-
tained in the off-road vehi-
cle consumption when dis-
cussing quarterly tax
refunds, "...it is estimated
that the County has been
overpaid $134,181 during
the three year period."
Additionally, the General
Ser voices / Purchasing
(GS/P) Department, the
county department respon-
s sible for overseeing fuel
site operations, has not
filed for over $138,688 in
refunds due to the county.
Although the two figures
when added together are
over a quarter of a million
dollars, the state does have
a statute of limitations on
when a county can request
a refund, but the report did
not point out what the cost
to county taxpayers would
be tor that oversight.
Furthermore, the audit
indicated that the county
did not properly bill out-
side agencies, like the
Highlands County School
Board, which would have
added at least $111,273
back into county board cof-
fers.
Several phone calls to
the Clerk of Courts office
and to county commission-
ers were not, returned 'by
press time.

about the state's handling of

there had been some missed

The prosecution basically
agreed with Fletcher,. saying
that granting more time was

EDITORIAL & OPINION


News-Sun Friday, March 6, 2009


It is nice to be
able to report
good news for a
change.
So many governmental
bodies and agencies across
the nation have failed in their
duties and been carried away
with partisan passion that citi-
zens may be forgiven a cyni-
cal outlook.
That is why the city of
Sebring's annual audit report
is so welcome.
If cities were sailing ships,
Sebring would be right on
course, sails reefed, hatches
battened down, ready for the
storm-tossed seas looming all
around.
Not only has the general
fund been growing for the last
four, years, it includes a cash
reserve of $960,000 in the
health insurance fund, giving
the city a cushion in the event
of a serious claim.
At the same time, the city's
health insurance expenses
have remained stable since
2006.
In terms of payroll, its most
significant expense, the city
also has held the line, show-
ing an increase of only 1.8
percent over 2007 from
49.1 percent of the budget to
51 percent.
Water and wastewater rev-
enues have historically out-


paced expenditures. Because-
the city paid for changing out
water meters a few years ago
instead of borrowing money
for the project, for a brief time
out-go surpassed income, but
even that is trending back up.
Representatives of Wicks,
Brown, Williams & Co., the
company that conducted the
audit, were upbeat and com-
plimentary to the city staff,
especially praising their coop-
eration. .
In fact, the whole process
went so smoothly, it was ofne
reason why the audit report
was presented earlier than
usual.
We would do well to
remember that government is
a -huge word applying to
countless groups of people.
When we rage about govern-
ment failing us, it is wise to
stop and think in specifics -
just which government do you
mean?
Because there .are govern-
ments that are not only work-
ing hard, they are doing so
successfully.
We will need confidence,
energy, and: courage to get
through the next two or three
years, but even more we will
need to be persistent, even
stubborn, refusing to give up.
If Sebrihg can manage in
these confused seas, then so
can the county, the state and
the country.

Fundraiser will help
APHS athletics
Editor:
I would like to tell you of
a way .ou can help us raise
a significant amount of
money with no cost to you.
With the help of Ford
Motor Company and Bill
Jarrett Ford, Avon Park High
School will hold our second
annual Drive For Your
School fundraising effort
this Saturday. March 7,,
between the hours of 9 a.m.
and 3 p.m.
Here's how it works: For,
every person that test drives
a vehicle at Bill Jarrett Ford
this Saturday, Ford Motor
Company will pay APHS
$20 per test drive.
That means if we can get
300 people to test drive a
,vehicle we can earn $6.000
for Avon Park High School
Athletics. 300 test drives is
our goal.
What better way to help
out our school, at no expense.
to you'?
There are some basic rules
that we must follow:
1. You'must hold a valid
Florida drivers license.
2. Only one test driver per
household.
3. Each driver must be at
least 18 years of age to test
drive a vehicle.
I hope you will dedicate
About a half hour of your
time Saturday to help our.
school. It is a great opportu-
nity for us to raise some
needed money for our ath-
letes and a real inexpensive
way for you to help Avon
Park High School.

Republicans are a
troubled party
Editor:
I recall reading a letter
saying the Republicans want
President Obama to fail. I
believe the gentleman who
wrote the letter appears to
have been exactly right.
In my opinion it would
not be off-key to say the
Republicans in the Senate
are jealous of Barack
Obama. Why? Because the
Lord our God has His hand
on this young man's shoul-
der.
God has given 'President
Obama wisdom and a mouth
his adversaries cannot gain-
say nor resist.
The rebellion of the
Republican Senate in
Washington opposing every
plan our President puts forth
reminds me of an automobile
on glass ice. The wheels spin
but they don't go any place.
In the meantime, Obama
continues to multi-task, stay
focused and moves steadily
forward.
Republicans are a troubled
party in that they fall short
intellectually, unable to
climb out of the ruts of dis-
honesty that become even
deeper as they turn to lobby-
ists for direction on how
they shall vote on the bills
that will fill their pockets
with taxpayers' money.
What we pay the Senators,

Republicans, is but a token
of thanks compared to gun
lobby ists, pharmaceuticals,
contractors and the list goes
on. Now a smart, beautifully
educated and gifted young
President Barack Obama
steps up to the plate and lays
down some ground rules in
the United States govern-
ment. "No lobbyists on my,
watch." He also makes it
clear he will not lihsitate to
use his power of office to
punish to the fullest extent
people who waste or misuse
money from his stimulus
package....
Is it any wonder'
Republicans, especially
would like to see Obama
fail? John Baehner ceremo-
niously holding up a copy of
the stimulus package learn-
ing pitifully that no
Republicans had had a
chance to thoughtfully read
it. If they don't know what it
says, what is the argument?
Now about the media.
Several .of the most popular
channels we ha\e looked to
for news has become nothing
more than gossip channels
who appear to feed off e-
mails where people are seek-
ing five minutes of fame ...
Finally, I would like to,
share a wish I have enter-
tained for some years.
Though-I may never see it
come to pass at 80 years old,
in my lifetime.
I wish for a law that
Representatives and Senators
would be allowed to serve
only six or eight-year terms.
Those who have served
20-30 years are "dead
wood,',so to speak. They
fear change. They are unable
to explore other ideas. They
become comfortable making
deals under the table and
stealing from the govern-
ment to feather their own
nest.
If God is for us, who can
be against us?
Don't worry America.
This too shall pass.

Freedom of Choice
Act a serious threat
Editor:
Thank you to Gingerlee
Mitchellindo who responded
in opposition to my attack
on the proposed Freedom of
Choice Act (FOCA). I was
concerned that no one cared
enough to react unfavorably.
Rather than reply with
personal attacks, I am anx-
ious to respond to your sev-


eral arguments. From my
experience-in Pro-Life work,
I know the leaders of this
movement are predominately
women, not men.
You express concern with
all the people killed in wars
and conclude there is no
comparison, between that
tragedy and the number of
abortions committed in the
USA. Are you not aware that
since the infamous Roe v.
Wade Supreme Court deci-
sion legalizing abortion in
1973, there have been more
than 46 million abortions in
this country alone? My
father taught me at an early
age that two wrongs, do not
make a right. Killing inno-
cent babies in their mothers
womb cannot be justified by
citing other holocausts.
You proudly claim to find
non-violent ways in personal
relations and yet you defend
a woman's "right" to kill her
own baby. It is absurd to
think that abortion is non-
violent. Have you ever seen
pictures of an aborted fetus,
in whole or in parts? It is so
grotesque, it is impossible to
not turn away in horror.
There are so many loving
couples only too anxious to
adopt new babies. In God's
holy name, let them be born.
Remember Gingerlee, your
mother chose life when you
were a fetus.
Let's get back to FOCA.
Governments should not be
playing God by legalizing
infanticide (abortion). Once
that door is open, as it is
with abortion, there will be
no end of government life
and death decisions, e.g.
euthanasia, capital punish-
ment, embryonic stem cell
research, cloning, assisted
suicide and selective reduc-
tion.
Please write on this sub-
ject again. The proposed
FOCA legislation must be
kept in the public's eye.

Happy customers
become repeat
customers
Editor:
I would like to compli-
-ment a local business. My
mother recently had some
minor work done at
Yarbrough Tire on Highlands
Avenue. A young man
noticed a dent she had in her
bumper for a long time, and
offered to pull it out. It took
only seconds, and looks
almost like it was never
there.
He refused to take the tip
she offered him.
I do not know his name,
but he is a great example of
good old customer service. I
do know an employee named
Mike Welborn, and he is one
of the most honest, kindest
people I've ever met.
Bottom line, great people
+ great service = happy cus-
tomers. Happy customers
become repeat customers..
This is a good example in a
time when service has
become so impersonal.

Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK -The health of
Florida's rural residents is an ongoing
concern. To address these concerns, the
Florida Office of Rural Health, estab-
lished in 1991 through state legislation,
is tasked to identify priority rural health
issues and develop a Rural Health Plan.
This Rural Health Plan helps to estab-
lish policies and activities towards
resolving identified issues relating to
health and health care services for rural
residents. The Office of Rural Health is
currently in the process of updating this
plan and is seeking input from rural res-
idents throughout the state of Florida.
A total of five "town hall" meetings
are being organized throughout the state
to actively involve rural residents in the


development of an updated rural health
plan.
This rural area was selected to host
one of the town hall meetings, and the
Community Health Improvement
Planning 'Council of Highlands County
(CHIP) has agreed to host this event.
The "town hall" meeting will be held on
Thursday at the Bert J. Harris Jr.
Agriculture Center, 4505 S. George
Blvd. The meeting will start at noon and
a light lunch will be provided.
Reservations are not required and it is
not necessary to attend the entire meet-
ing;
The purpose of the meeting is to help
the state office identify health priorities
as seen by Florida's rural residents. All
individuals from Highlands, DeSoto,


Hardee, and other surrounding rural
counties are invited to participate in this
meeting.
The facilitator, Dr. Gail Bellamy, a
Florida State University professor, will
lead the discussion. Comments from
participants will be documented and
provided to the State Office of Rural
Health.
These "town hall" meetings allow
local rural residents to share their opin-
ions on health priorities impacting the
state's rural communities. Plan to attend
and provide health priorities for
Florida's Rural Health Plan.

Previous cocaine charges keep

theft suspect behind bars


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID A man
was charged with three
felonies after allegedly steal-
ing tools from his boss's
work truck and trying to sell
them in the Highway Park
area.
Bert Crawford, 31, Lake
Placid, was approached by
the victim's son on Feb. 27
when he was checking on a
job site in the Highway Park
area.
He told Crawford about
the stolen items, and
Crawford responded by say-'
ing he would be able to get
some of the items back, but
he "just needed $50 to
accomplish the task," the
arrest report said.
The victim's son gave $50
to Crawford and after wait-
ing for an hour and a half,
decided he was not coming


back.
Later that day a resident in
the Highway Park area
reportedly saw Crawford
selling items out of his vehi-
cle.
Highlands County
Sheriff's Office deputies
found Crawford allegedly
trying to retrieve a tool box.
he had sold earlier, the report
said, stating he was doing so
for "an unknown" reason.
Deputies found a man who
had bought some of the tools
that were discovered to
belong to the victim.
The report stated he pur-
chased three yellow tie down
straps, a socket kit and a cou-
ple of tractor pins for $45.
He reportedly identified
Crawford as the man who
sold him the items.
* Crawford was charged
with burglary of an unoccu-
pied vehicle, theft less than


$5,000, and dealing in stolen
property all felonies -
and was booked, into the
Highlands County Jail on
March 2.
Bond was set at $20,000
but in his most recent arrest,,
in December for possession
of cocaine and drug para-
phernalia, he was granted
pretrial release and did not
have to make bond.
His pretrial -release was
revoked due to the recent
theft charges and he
remained in the Highlands
County Jail this week without
bond on those charges until
'his court date.
"Mr. Crawford technically
stays in jail until his next
court date of April 27 on pos-
session of cocaine and drug
paraphernalia," said Liz
Peralta, central records man-
ager for the HCSO. "Even if
he is able to post bond on the

Hairpin Spin draws a Aot of attention and attendance each year. Tickets for this year's event
are now on sale.


Tickets on sale for Hairpin Spin


News-Sun staff reports
SEBRING Tickets are
now on sale for the fourth
annual Hairpin Spin, which
will take place from 12-2
p.m.. Wednesday, March 18,
and kicks off the 12 Hours of
Sebring. It will be held at the
Four Points by Sheraton -
Chateau Elan. An individual
must be 21, or older to attend.
First begun in 2006, the
Hairpin Spin is a major
fundraiser, that provides
money for four local non-
profit agencies: The
Highlands Art League
Scholarship Program; the
Children's Services
Foundation's Safe House; the
Highlands County Humane
Society; and the Sebring
Sportscar Hall of Fame
Museum.
According to Lisa
Celentano, who is credited
with inventing the Hairpin
Spin, the Raceway had
always looked for ways to


raise money for charity.
Celentano approached Tres
Stephenson, Sebring
International Raceway presi-
dent, with an entirely differ-
ent idea .create a casino-
themed luncheon with a huge
roulette wheel and the oppor-
tunity. to spin to win prizes;
add world famous drivers to
help spin the wheel and sign
autographs, she said, to make
it even more exciting; and
then include an all-you-can-
eat buffet with wine and
gourmet chocolates and
desserts and it was bound to
draw more participants.
This year three vacation
trips are in play, one to
Montana, another to the
Bahamas, and a three-day,
two-night hunting excursion.
The grand prize is a VIP race
package Celetano said is val-
ued in the thousands of dol-
lars.
Celentano explained that
the concept of the Hairpin


Spin is simple. Numbered
poker chips match tickets.
The chip is put into the
desired prize's basket and the
player keeps the ticket.
"One at a time we place the
basket full of chips on the
wheel and have race drivers,
race queens, and local
celebrities spin the wheel. If
the ticker lands on your.
poker chip, you win that
prize," she said.
In 2008 Hairpin Spin
raised $22,000 and after
expenses, $4,000 was sent to
four chosen charities.
A person gets in the door
paying $25 for the buffet, the
wine, the fun, and the chance
to win big. Poker chips sell
10 for $25. Tickets and chips
are now available for pur-
chase at .Busy Bodies, call
386-0505 or send an e-mail
to hairpidspin@yahoo..comn.
Tickets will be available at
the door if it is not a sold-out
event.


Firewise program set for state park


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Learn more
about the benefits of pre-
scribed fire, and also discov-
er simple ways to protect
your home and property from
the devastating effects of
wildfires during a free "Fire
in Florida" presentation at
Highlands Hammock State
Park. Melissa Yunas from the
Florida Division of Forestry
will present the Firewise
seminar from 10-11 a.m.
Saturday, March 28.
Is fire beneficial to
Florida? Yes, Florida is cov-
ered with more than 16 mil-
lion acres of forests.
Although the state's abun-
dant rain and sunshine are


vital to the survival of'
Florida's forests, another ele-
ment is necessary to main-
taining .them ... fire. Over
thousands of .years, Florida's
forests have developed
because of the presence of
fire,' and many of Florida's
ecosystems require. fire in'
order to exist.
In fact, "La Florida," was
chosen for the state's name
by early explorers due to the
abundance of flowering
plants encountered. on their
arrival. This diversity is
maintained by frequent fires.
Fire is neither all good, nor
all bad. It's a natural part of
Florida.
Fire may be a friend to the


Florida environment, but it
can be scary when your home
is built close to 'wild lands.
This. presentation will pro-
vide simple Firewise princi-
pals to help you prepare your
property before a devastating
wildfire occurs. Safety proce-
dures to protect loved ones
and property once a wildfire
threatens will also be dis-
cussed. Reserve a seat for
this presentation by calling
Dorothy L. Harris at 386-
6094 or 634-7695.
Anyone needing additional
information may contact the
local Division of Forestry at-

Glades counties) or visit the

Lady Blue Streaks put away Devils late


News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE
Kayla Clemens slides in just ahead of Brearnna Tate's tag Tuesday night in Sebring's 11-1 win at Avon Park.


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
AVON PARK Despite
the 11-1 final score of
Sebring's 6-inning win over
the Lady Devils Tuesday
night, the old adage that with
rivalry games, season
records can be tossed out the
window, predominantly rang
true.
"We don't have seven sen-
iors like Sebring came in
here with tonight," Avon
Park head coach Wade
Jackson said of his young
and growing team. "That was
us last year, but we're getting
better all the time and a game
like this only helps."
Given that the Lady Blue
Streaks .(7-2) are loaded and
off to a strong start, they
weren't going to see :the
inexperience of the Devils as
any reason to look past this
game.


"It's still Avon Park,"
Nikki Helms said before-
hand. "It's the same as it
always is, we want to beat
them."
Wanting and doing, how-
ever, don't always go hand in
hand as Sebring didn't exact-
ly put. Avon Park away early
on.
A leadoff single to Dino
Lower in the first, followed
by two errors got the Streaks
on the board quickly, but
Ashley Carr struck out the
next three hitters in order to
retire the side.
The Devils offense could-
n't answer against Sebring's
Haley Pack, as she recorded
her only two strikeouts of the
night.
"Haley's ,not going to
strike a lot of people out,"
Streak head coach Joe

Lake Placid ladies edge Avon Park, Sebring


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne @newssun.comn
LAKE PLACID The
home track advantage helped
the Lady Green Dragons take
a step up as they topped the
five-team field Tuesday at
Lake Placid High School's
barely year-old track.
After taking second to
Avon Park at Joe Franza
Stadium last Thursday, the
ladies in green edged the
Lady Devils, 67.5-65. with
Sebring just a little farther
back in third with 56 team
points.
LaBelle was a point back.
with 55. in fourth, and Moore
Haven rounded out the strong
fielj4d_,kh 4.55 p its, p.... .
On the Boys sidevMoore
Haven racked up 93 points to
win .with LaBelle *second
with 73.5. Lake Placid third
with -55.5, Sebring fourth
with 51 and the Red Delils
fifth with 24.
Leading the charge for the
Lake Placid gals was two-
event winner Julie
Shrewsbury, winning both
the 100- and 300-meter hur-
dles in convincing fashion.
Teammate Taylor Miller
was runner-up in both races
and also took fourth in the
long jump to help the Dragon
cause.
S Kaelyn Fort, who was third
in the 300 hurdles, finished
in a first-place tie with Avon
Park's Zakia Hart in the pole


vault, ,with each clearing 6-
feet, 6-inches.
Lake Placid saw another
win in the girls 4-b -400
relay as Fort. Yuribia
Terrones. Taylor Clark and
Rhonwen Gavagni ran a
5:02.19 pace.
Heading the Lady Devils
effort was the strong arm of
Tia Nobles winning both the
shot put. with a distance of
30-feet, 5.5-inches, and the
discus, 105-feet. 6-inches -
nearly 27 feet farther than her
nearest competitor.
Minerva Arrequin added a
first-place finish in the 800
for Avon Park, coming across
the line in 2:57.07. and also
took -second.in.-the 1,600..
Red Devil Jamee
Hawthorne too second in the
long jump with a leap of 15-
feet, 7.5-iriches.
The Lady Blue Streaks had
four first-place finishes with
Zykeria Dawkins winning the
100 (13.22), Lisa Przychocki
the high jump (4-feet-7),
Emily Smith the 1,600 (6:20)
and the quartet of Dawkins,
Aiiryniss Holdman,
Emmanice McCullors and
Cierra Freeny the 4-by-100
(54.62).
For the boys, the Dragons
Stephen Guelff stood out
with wins in the 300 hurdles
and long jump and a second
in the 110 hurdles.

attempt. Miller would finish fourth in the event with a leap of 13-feet, 5-inches.


Lopsided

results go

both ways

The Sebring bat boys loaded
up against an outmanned
Booker team Tuesday night for
a 17-1, mercy rule win. "
Taking advantage of erratic
control from the mound and
numerous Tornado errors, the
Streaks scored early and often
on the early-ending night.
At, 5-2, Sebring headed to
Clewiston Thursday where they
likley faced a bit more resist-
ance.

Errors doom
Devils
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK -. Errors '
caused the Red Devil, slug-'
gers to drop another game.
This time Ason Park took a
9-1 flogging from Braden
River.
"It comes down to errors,":
said.Avon Park head coach
Mort Jackson after the game.
"We jumped out 'front and
stayed there until, the top of
the fourth, and we were even
up on hits with them until
then.
"This should have been a
3-1 ball game. They scored
on errors, anid that kind of
deflated us," Jackson added.
With two down in the bot-
tom of the first, Red Devil:

Don Hickman."It's still a

to keep it that way. We have
10 teams competing, and
that's exciting." Hickman


added.

Special to. the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID -
Schoonis Family Restuarant
scored big and often en route
to a 24-3 lead into the last
inning versus Michelle Yates
Insurance in Lake Placid.
Senior Softball League play
on Wednesday, March 4 at
the Lake June ballfieds.
The Insurers' bats came
alive in the last inning,
cheered on by the Harland
Newby fan club (daughters
and grandchildren from
Wisconsin visiting their par-
ents over spring break) to
score eight runs.
But it was too little, too
late, as the final score was
24-11.
Mike Jurmu, a 65-year old
Green Bay, Wisc. native,
U.S. Air Force Viet Nam War
veteran and winter resident
of Buttonwood Bay, led the
way for the win at shortstop
and at the plate.
Jurmu is finishing up
building a two-seat, sport air-
craft, which he hopes to fly
this spring when he returns to
Green Bay.
He was 5-for-5 at the plate
including a home run, but a
member of the Newby fan


club who coaches a high
school girls fast pitch softball
team, said that a couple of
those bloopers over the
infield would .have been
caught by her girls!
However, in the scorebook
they look like any other hit-."
Also contributing to the
high scoring for Schoonis
were Don Cunningham and
Darrell Richards, each 4-for-
5 with Cunningham's hits
including two home runs, and
Manager Dorin Quigg,
Howard Carney, Dick
Heinback and Rod Palmer
with three hits each.
The ,Yates team bats were
held in check ufitil the last
inning with only George
Quay managing two hits to
that point.
In the end, Fred Cooper,
Paul Brand, Frank Hedges,
Ray Wilson and Ross
Anderson managed two hits
each, with Anderson deliver-
ing a three-run double and
Harvey Jones smacking out a
triple in the loss.
Play on the other field saw
a close game get away from
Central Security as' the
league-leading Seminole Tire


team scored big in the last
few innings for an 18-11 vic-
tory.
Gary Van, Ed Engler and
substitute -Duke Hensley.
were each 4-for-5, with Van-
having a home run and Cliff
Blumi Tom Walsh and Jeff
Stanley adding three hits
each, with Stanley deliving
two doubles for the Tiremen.-
The Central Security team
was missing some -.ey play-
ers, but still had a lead until
the late innings.
Larry Oser had four hits.
Manager Charlie Quinn. Cal

Bible study will continue in

All those who are familiar
with the state of Florida
know that there are many
attractions for its residents
and tourists. The most allur-
ing of these would be its
: sandy beaches and beautiful
. sunsets. It is edsy to see the
: handprint ofGod on His cre-
, ation throughout the
" Sunshine State." Truly, the
best thing about Florida is
its "Son-shine!"
S The greatest attraction
that God has ever intended
for each person to encounter'
is the shining "light" of
Jesus Christ. Jesus said, "I
am the light of the world: he
that followeth me shall not
walk in darkness, but shall
have the light of life" (John
8:12). Christ offers an inner
peace and joy that this world
; can never give.
Because each of us is
born in the darkness of sin,
it is imperative that we enter
into the "Light." The Bible
says, "For all have sinned,
and come short of the glory
of God" (Romans 3:23).
Anything we do, say, or
think that displeases God is
sin. Every man has broken:
God's law, which in turn,
has broken His heart.
All sin has'consequences;
it will not go unnoticed or
unpunished. "For the wages
of sin is death" (Romans
6:23a)., Ultimately, because
of our sin, we deserve to be

;served by the late Pastor Al Oppold from
1982-1992. And, Pastor John Grodzinski

tained with a movie of the actual church
construction and a wide screen presentation

the benediction and called the congregation
to service for the next 50 years.
