Guilty plea


in Sottile


murder

Altersberger admits to
shooting trooper just
days before trial starts
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffle'y@newtssun.com
SEBRING In a surprise twist,
Joshua Lee Altersberger, 21, who was
awaiting trial on charges of gunning
down Florida Highway Patrol Sgt.
Nicholas Sottile on Jan. 12. 2007 entered
a plea of guilty Friday afternoon in a
Polk County courtroom.
Altersberger reportedly said, "I'm
doing it because I wanted to take respon-
sibility and man up to what I did."
Nicholas Sotille's brother. Jimmy
Sotille, isn't having any of it.
"This is just his last-
ditch attempt to get pity."
Sotille said. "He should-




Sottile trying to get out ot what
he did. He didn't (plead guilty), for the
sake of my family, he's doing this for
himself. Why wait two years and at the
last minute pull this?"
The state had announced the intention
of seeking the death penalty and
Altersberger's plea does not change that.
A sentencing jury will be picked and tes-
timony presented to it. so it can decide
whether he should be put to death.
The presiding judge will be the final
arbiter. That phase of the process begins
March 23.
"No matter what, this thing is still up
in the air," Sotille said. "This guy can't
be trusted. It's like he's calling the shots
- he pleads guilty and everNbody says
'thank you, thank you.'"

completely destroyed, and spread to

Judge issues order to clear up court personnel flap


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING Judge J.
David Langford issued an
Administrative Order on
Thursday to correct problems
with the handling of person-
nel in Highlands and Hardee
counties, and made the order
retroactive back to 2004 to
nullify other mistakes.
In an attempt to clarify the
supervisory status of staff


Langford's ruling fixes' mistake from 2004


working for the 10th Judicial
Circuit, Administrative Order
1-5.3 was issued stating that
all "county funded employees
working for the court shall
work at the pleasure of the
appointing authority, i.e., the
Chief Judge."
Additionally, the order was
made retroactive back to July


1, 2004, the effective date of
Revision 7 to Article V of the
Florida Constitution, when,
according to Chief
Administrator of the 10th
Circuit Nick Sudzina, all per-
sonnel were transferred to the
state.
The issue was raised when
Preston H. Colby requested


personnel records of county
employees, and was directed
to Sudzina.
State statutes mandate that
some employees for the
courts, such as those doing
information technology, are
paid out of county funds, but
it was not clear who could
hire and fire personnel under


that agreement.
Personnel records were
kept in two places, some with
the county clerk and some
with the Judicial Circuit.
which led to delays in public
records requests.
"This just clears up some-
thing we have been doing
anyhow. It formalizes what
we've been doing." Langford

LAKE PLACID Judge Angela
Cowden and two local attorneys visited
Lake Placid Middle School Friday to
spread the word about the upcoming Law,
Day competition.
Students of all ages can compete in the
contest, with five age categories running
from first grade through high school.
Students are able to flex their creative
muscle by submitting either an essay or
poster, with the theme "Celebrating
Lincoln's Life What is Lincoln's
Unique Legacy?"
The American Bar Association chose
Lincoln as the subject for the topic
because 2009;is the bicentennial of his
birth.
"We have good participation from most

Linda Rodriguez-Torrent, who spoke


about the contest with eighth-grade stu-

Roberts is well known as a former
member.of the school board and past
Avon'Park city councilman. He will be
assisted by Virginia Cullity, a full-
blooded Irish culinary artist.
Cullity speaks with a twinge of Irish
accent and a touch of Bostonian.
"We grew up on corned beef, cab-
bage, potatoes and Irish bread,

said.
She was one of seven children who

Roberts will be using some of his
home-grown cabbage for the feast.

TODAY'S LETTERS


Better commercial vehicle.
enforcement needed
Editor:
After living 60 years in another
state, I now make my home in
Florida. Since arriving here I took
notice of the lack of commercial
vehicle enforcement by Florida and
local area law enforcement.
What "tripped my trigger" was a
semi that had his exhaust brake
activated and very loud. I heard this
guy a mile from the intersection of,
Schumacher Road and U.S. 27.
And I continued to hear him as he
traveled south from Schumacher.
Exhaust brakes are not loud if the
vehicle is equipped with the proper
equipment. But coupled with twin
straight pipes and no mufflers (yes
folks, no mufflers), it is loud and
that's what people complain about.
But more concerning to me are
the unsecured loads that are obvi-
ous. Large heavy equipment and
building materials without load
chains securing them to the beds of
equipment trailers and trucks.
Is state and local law enforce-
ment not enforcing state and federal
laws? Surely Florida DOT enforce-
ment should, but it appears they
may not being doing all that they
can.
I have never seen a state trooper
beliind a commercial vehicle on a
stop, unless the vehicle was in a
crash, stalled or blocking. Is the
Highway Patirol not charged with
commercial vehicle enforcement?
DQT Enforcement is working the
commercial vehicles, but what are
they enforcing? Are roadside equip-
ment and load securement inspec-
tions occurring when DOT has a
commercial vehicle stopped.
It's a dirty job but someone must
do it;.
Ivpersonally have seen what large
uns1 ,red loads can do to automo-
bil 'iand their passengers. It is not
pre^, and very sad. With 28 years
of law enforcement, 22 years as a
state trooper, four of which was
commercial vehicle enforcement.


I can assure everyone reading this
letter that in my home state, all
public safety agencies enforce com-
mercial vehicle laws. The local
police departments, the sheriff's
offices, the state patrol, and DOT
enforcement work 'literally side by
side, and to stop unsafe commercial
vehicles from using the state's high-*
ways.
I am quite sure the state of
Florida has similar state laws
requiring secure loads, unsafe
equipment, and driver rules. I'm
also sure Florida has adopted
49CFR (Code of Federal
Regulations) for commercial vehi-
cles and drivers. Why aren't these
tools being used?
The bad vehicle owners and oper-
ators are thumbing their noses at
your law enforcement, I see it
everyday and it scares me.

Beware of out-of-town
businesses
Editor:
Beware of an air conditioning
company that comes to do a clean-
ing and check-up for a very reason-
able price then tells you it looks
like your air conditioner is ready to
go. This was done to a lady in
Covered Bridge and my mother.
The company had replaced her air
conditioner five years previously.
They charged her $5,000 for a new
two and a half ton unit, which
should cost about $3,000. They told
her she needed an ultraviolet light
installed for mold and clean air.
This was the worst, she was
charged $2,000 for an item that at
the most, with installation would be
$500 to $600.
My mother told them she just had
her air conditioner replaced four
years ago and knew hers was fine
but scare tactics were used with the
mold danger and for $1,495 the
ultraviolet light was installed. They
were also trying to get my mother
to do a duct cleaning for an outra-


geous fee.
Please, anyone who lives in the
Sebring area, Lake Placid and Avon
Park area, check the price and the
need with another air conditioning
company before you spend unneces-
sary money and are grossly over-
charged. The company is out of
Sarasota and has technicians who
live in the local area.
If this has happened to you, con-
tact the Florida Department of
Business and Professional
Regulation at (850) 487-1395 or the
governor's office.

Controversy

in the air

I fly a couple of times a year
or more. Because I'm not made
of money, I find myself planning
ahead and taking the less expen-
sive'flights. Less expensive
means a layover and sitting in
economy, which is cramped even
for short people.
There's also the whole cutting
costs on things like food on
planes. I'm pleasantly surprised
whenever I get something hot
and actually tasty on:a flight
these days. It's just not some-
thing I see every time I fly.
Then there's US Airways and
JetBlue charging passengers in
economy class for pillows and
blankets. I'm asking myself if
there's any circumstance.on a
flight that I might want a pillow
or a blanket so badly that I'd
shell out cash for it. I haven't
thought of one yet.
If I had money that I could
divert to things like plane
flights, I might seriously consid-
er upgrading myself out of econ-
omy class, or at least get a non-
stop flight for a change to skip
the whole killing time in an air-
port I often find myself doing.
And I've flown first class once;
it is much nicer than economy,
no argument.
I say all this to demonstrate
I'm not totally without sympathy
to some of Speaker Nancy
Pelosi's desires when it comes to
flying. Before I explain what my
problems with her requests are,
let me point out the things I have
no problem with.
First, it's not unreasonable for
Speaker Pelosi to be using mili-
tary, aircraft. In fact, that's exact-
ly what she's supposed to do,
thanks to security concerns fol-
lowing 9/11. If you think the
Speaker of the House doesn't
rate this, you'll have to take it
up with the Bush Administration,
which implemented the policy.
Second, I fully understand her
wanting a plane that doesn't
require a refueling stop. As I
said, layovers are not fun. If her
grandkids are with her, they'd
probably be a lot less fun. And I
suspect non-stop is somewhat
more secure than stopping some-
where, which gives a bad guy
another chance to mess with the
plane while it's on the ground.
Now, I'm not sure if a military
plane that carts around the
Speaker of the House can refuel
while in the air or not. I get the
feeling it doesn't, but even so, I
understand not wanting to have
to deal with that.
So, that's what I get. Here's
what I don't.
According to the organization
Judicial Watch, Speaker Pelosi
has been taking the privilege to
the nth degree. She has alleged-
ly demanded high end jets and
gotten upset when they weren't
available. Apparently she also
has a bad habit of cancelling or
changing her plans at the last
minute, which means the time
and money spent getting ready
for her pretty much goes down
the drain.
According to Bill O'Reilly, *
the Speaker's office could not
say how many military flights
she's taken since she became
Speaker. Judicial Watch claims
that their records show that
Speaker Pelosi and her
entourage hIve taken at least 50
military flights in the time peri-
od that covers February 2007 to
November 2008.
My thoughts on this are that
while Nancy Pelosi has the right
to use the military jets, she has
the responsibility to keep records
on it and find ways to cut the
costs. We are all being told that
we need to tighten our belts
while the economy sorts itself
out is Speaker Pelosi an excep-

on pandemic influenza,
which is known as pandemic .
flu.
Pandemic flu preparedness :
is one of the most important
subjects .in this new century.
The last time that there was
a major pandemic flu was in
1918-1919. At that time
more people died in the
event than those that were '
lost in all of World War I. It
is estimated that upwards of .
50 million people were taken ^
by the disease.
Since then there have been
events in 1957 and 1968,
which combined to cause a
total loss of about 3 million '
lives.
This subject is very
important. International,
national, state and local gov-
ernments are all making
plans for the possibility of
.an event in the near future.
Call 699-3705 to reserve a
seat. Space is limited to 25.

State's ailing dairy industry hopes pizza

partnership brings much needed relief


-l f .0 i 1 -


March milk
prices will be
same as 1978


S Special to the News-Sun
MAITLAND When Florida's
dairy farmers receive their pay-
check for March, the price'they
will get for their milk will mir-
ror- vbat they were paid in July
,19*.
SMatt Lussier, a Gainesville
area dairy farmer and president
Sof Dairy Farmers Inc., calls the
situation the industry is facing
,unprecedented."'
* Feed and fuel prices are at
extreme levels and the world-
wide economic crisis, has caused
demand for dairy foods to drop,
crippling U.S. exports. It's a
"perfect storm" scenario that
may force some of Florida's 144
producerss to leave the industry.
Some relief, however, may be
found inside a pizza box.
America's dairy producers,
,through their promotion "check-
off" investment, have been
working to reinvigorate the pizza
category.
Pizza cheese, afterall, is big
business with about 25 percent
of total U.S. cheese used on piz-
zas. This figure represents more
than 25 billion pounds of annual
American milk production.
"We need to redefine pizza as
it stands today," Lussier said.
"Do you remember when the
pizza we grew up with was cov-
ered in 'cheese and had that
tremendous cheese flavor?
"We need to get back to that
before this generation of con-
sumers comes to believe the cur-
rent pizza taste is the norm."
Chicago-based Dairy ."
Management Inc.. which over-''
sees the national direction of the
checkoff, is facilitating an indus-
try task force to develop action
plans on how the dairN industry

can reiiyvigorate the pizza indus-
try and return it as a top choice
among American consumers for
quality and value.
The first sign of success
arrived with the unveiling of
Domino's American Legends, six
specialty pizzas that use 40 per-
cent more cheese than a regular
pizza.
It's a unique partnership that
clearly keeps dairy farmers top
of mind with Domino's claiming
on its box: "We.use 6 legendary
cheeses. Brought to you by
America's dairy farmers."
The box includes the Real
Seal, further guaranteeing its
:Aimerican quality.
SOkeechobee dairy farmer
Sutton Rucks of Milking R Inc.
expects. American Legends pizza
to hit the mark with consumers.
"The Domino's promotion'is a


much-needed immediate
response to the economic situa-
tion that dairy farmers are fac-
ing," Rucks said. "Our industry
needs to move milk and other
dairy products through the
pipeline as soon as possible and
this promotion is a big step in
that direction.
"I had a pleasant flashback to
that 'old school' flavor when I
tried a slice."
Domino's is the world leader
in pizza delivery. Domino's
alone uses more than 1.73 billion'
pounds of milk for its cheese,
meaning it employs 91,893 cows
a year.
It's this sort of volume that
has Rucks optimistic.
"Everything in the dairy
industry is volume driven," he
said. "How much volume does a
Radio ad or billboard move? I


don't know. I do know that if
you put 40 percent more cheese
on a pizza that there is more
cheese going out the door every
time one of these pizzas gets
delivered. That's volume."
Dairy Farmers, Inc. is
Florida's milk promotion group.
The organization is designed to
enhance the dairy-farming indus-
try's image and increase milk
n and dairy-product sales
statewide via marketing and edu-
cation.
DFI is one of 20 member
organizations of the United
Dairy Industry Association and
carries out the programs of *
Dairy Management, Inc., the
umbrella organization based in
Chicago.

Students to compete

for Law Day prizes


Continued from page 2A
This year he will cover the
Emancipation Proclamation,
the 13th Amendment, and use
other historic events to draw
the line to the election of the
first African American presi-
dent. He will even discuss his
own experience growing up
in Highlands County during
segregation.
' Law Day started in 1958 in
response to the Soviet
Union's May Day, when the
streets would fill with a dis-
play of that nation's weapons
during the Cold War. The
idea was to show that the
United States was ruled by
laws instead of weapons. to
keep the citizens in line.
""The rulers under
Communism govern by
night alone," said Charles S.
Rhyne in a radio speech on
the first Law Day on May 1,
1958. "Government by terror
does not exist in America and
cannot exist under our gov-
ernment of law."


At the time Rhyne was the
president of the American
Bar Association.
Law Day will be celebrat-
ed in Highlands County with
numerous activities, includ-
ing a visit from the Chief
Justice of the Florida
Supreme Court Peggy
Quince, and the award of the
top three entries in all age
groups for the essay and
poster contests.
First place in each group
will take home $100, with the
top three finishers receiving
Olympic-style medals.
Entries' must be received
via mail at the law library in
Sebring by Friday, March 27.
Entry forms for both con-
tests can be downloaded from
judl0.org and clicking the
link at the bottom of the page
titled "Highlands County
2009 Law Day Essay &
Poster Contest."
Any additional questions
can be directed to law librar-
ian Nancy Thomas at 402-

Bill O'Brien Dau


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Friday was Bill O'Brien Day in Sebring and Lake
Placid. Friends and admirers gathered at Fireman's
Field and the First Baptist Church of Lake Placid to
enjoy a barbecue lunch while raising money to install a
self-help sling rig so he can maintain his independence.
O'Brien contracted polio as an infant. Within the last
decade the disease has returned to attack the muscles
it missed the first time around.

Judge's order fixes personnel

problem dating back to 2004


Continued from page 1A
said on Friday.
"We supervise the indi-
viduals who perform court
duties, and this was some-
thing that should have been
done in 2004, but was not.
This was just an oversight."
The issue arose from a
complaint by a former coun-
ty employee that was paid
by county funds, but was
supervised and terminat-
ed by administration with
the 10th Circuit Judicial
Courts.
The investigation into
personnel records stemmed
from the recent findings of
concealed cameras and
questionable recordings in
the Highlands County court-
rooms.
Both Langford and
Sudzina admitted that the
oversight was brought to
light because of the recent
inquiries made by Colby.
"This just gives us the
right to hire and fire. We
we're doing that anyway.
This should have been an
order that was done when
the law changed in 2004, but


'This just gives us
the right to hire and
fire. We were doing
that anyway.'

NICK SUDZINA
court administrator
was an oversight on our
part. Colby's questions
pointed out this oversight,
and when it was discovered,
we corrected it. This con-
forms with the practice we
have done all along,"
Sudzina said.
"This issue was brought
to our attention by Colby,
and we are glad this over-
sight was discovered. This
order is an attempt to
address this issue,"
Langford said.
But Colby is not accept-
ing any of the court's argu-
ments.
"This is just a get-out-of-
jail-free card for them-
selves," Colby said. "They
are wrong and they know it.
This is an attempt to cover
up mistakes made by the
county and by the courts
over the past five years."

Injuries rock


Lady Blue Streaks


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
The injury bug has hit the
Sebring softball team like a
Mac truck, which played a
big part in Friday's 9-1 loss
at Braden River.
'Slammin' Sammy Lower
went down early in the week
with a torn ACL, ending her
season and pitcher Haley
Pack took a ball off her ankle
in practice, hobbling her.
And in the midst of a tight
game against the Lady
Pirates, staff ace Nikki Helms
tweaked a hamstring rounding
first and had to come out.
"It looked like it was going
to be one of those games,"
head coach Joe Sinness said.
"A pitcher's duel that could
go either way at the end. But
when Nikki went down, we
had to put Haley in. She did
the best she could, but with
her ankle it was tough."
The tight game then went
lopsided with an eight-run
Braden River fourth.
"This really takes the wind
out of our sails," Sinness
said. "We were down already
with Sammy out, but then to
have Haley knicked up and
now Nikki hurt. I'm running
out of varsity players."
All is not lost, however,
with a talented core still intact.
Though they'll be tested
soon and often with visits
from DeSoto. Monday and
Lake Wales Thursday.
As for Lower, despite a pre-
mature end to her senior sea-
son, she was plenty upbeat.
"I'm seeing a specialist in

Orlando on the 25th to set up
the surgery," she said.
"Talking to athletes and
coaches, they say I could be
back in four trionths"
Good news for her team
next year at lEast Tennessee
State.
"They just said I'm going to
have to work really hard to get
ready for the season." she said.
"I'm ready to get the surgery
done so I can get to work."
As for her, current team,
Lower has faith in her team:
mates.
"We'll be fine," she said.
"When Nikki went dow rn,
they kind of lost their moti-
vation. But they were right in
,the game. The girls look
good"...

Dragons out-match Devils

Green Dragon Evan Chaput came up on the short end of
an extended battle with Red Devil Mitchell Guerndt, 6-
2, 4-6, 9-11, but his Lake Placid teammates picked him
up with a 5-2 match win at Avon Park. Michael Sweat,
Andreas Berg and Jacob Underwood got wins for the
Dragons at No.s 1, 2 and 4 singles, respectively while
Guerndt won at No. 3 for the Devils. Sweat and
Underwood teamed to win No. 1 double and Berg and
Chaput took care of business at No. 2 doubles. The No.
5 singles match went to Avon Park due to forfeit. Avon
Park is back at it against Booker at home Tuesday while
Lake Placid takes a short trip to Sebring that same day.

SEBRING Despite hav-

night's matchup with Braden
River (9-2, 5-0) at Firemen's

Lady Panthers level Pasco


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
AVON PARK What a dif-
ference a couple of days
make, although in the eyes of
a coach, the turnaround like-
ly seems an eternity.
"They're buying into what
I've been telling them,"
SFCC softball coach Carlos
Falla said. "They are learn-
ing."
The buying into and learn-
ing translated to a two-game


sweep of Pasco-Hernando
Thursday night, by 7-1 and 9-
1 scores, moving the
Lady Panthers to 3-1 SF
in Suncoast
Conference play. 7
All facets of their El
game were on against PH
the Lady 1
Conquistadors, frpm
complete game pitch-
ing performances by
Breanna Beckel and Kendra
Wellnitz, to a strong defense,


aggressive baserunning and a
barrage of hitting.
Highlighting the
CC hitting were Cassady
Faircloth, who went 5-
for-8 in the sweep,
of Lara Helton blasting a
ICC second-game home
1 run and Avon Park
grad Missy Lander
doubling on a blast
that missed leaving
the yard by Aere inches.
"Our biggest thing is just


getting pumped up and ready
to come out to play," short-
stop Amanda Leiter said.
"We spent about 15 minutes
before the games working on
a new cheer to get us going."
And so it was seen that
with the right mindset and
attitude, the talent comes
through.

WIN 5K
SEBR ING Get out your running
shoes and dress out for the third annual
Wellness Is N (WIN) 5K Run.
The annual event gives people the
chance to raise funds for their Highlands
County American Red Cross while
stretching their endurance and speed.
Registration starts at 7 a.m. Saturday,
March 28, at Highlands Hammock State
Park, with a shotgun start at 7:30 p.m.
Runners may preregister for $15 or
register the day of the event for $20. If
they raise $50 or more in pledges from
their community, however, the run is
free.
Last year's field had more than 80 par-
ticipants, thanks in part to holding the
run early in the day and earlier in the
year, when more people could partici-
pate. The local Red Cross decided to
keep the same tradition this year.
Red Cross volunteers will man an aid
station for thirsty or hungry runners at
the start/finish line. Bananas are courtesy
of L&D Produce in Sebring.
The run starts on Hammock Road in
the park near the CCC Museum area, fol-
lowing the paved drive-around path in
Highlands Hammock State Park, past the
old homestead, the Charlie Creek Trail;
and the amphitheater, before heading
back to the CCC Museum area.
Participants may run, jog, trot, or walk
finishing the course in a fast time or a
comfortable pace, as long as they get out
for some fun and exercise.
To register, download a form at polk-
countyfl.redcross.org or contact the
Highlands Red Cross at (863) 386-4440
or hcarc@vistanet.net.
Send your form with fee or pledges to
Highlands Red Cross, 106 Medical
Center Ave., Sebring, FL 33870.
Sponsorships are still available for the
Run. Come forward and support your
local American Red Cross.
Tough economic times have reduced
financial support for the Red Cross, but
disaster responses continue. Local home
fires remain the most common Red Cross
disaster response.
You never know when an emergency
may occur, but knowing what to do can
save a life.

Lady Panther

performers plentiful


Continued from 1B
mind right away for Falla.
"Cassady Faircloth is just
,unconscious," he said. "It
must look like a watermelon
to her right now. She just flat
hits that ball and is getting it
done for us."
But in the same breath, he
added to the list.
"Obi (Robbielyn
Roberson) is getting better at
bat, Megan (Randolph) is
starting to relax and putting
the ball in play," he said.
"Missy (Lander) is at a thou-
sand miles an hour, but when
you calm her down, is an
incredible athlete who's
worked her way into the line-
up. And Lacy (McCall), when
she's not too fired up, really
gets the job done."
A few caveats in there, of
course, but the product cer-


'It must look like
a watermelon to
her right now.'
CARLOS FALLA
SFCC head coach
tainly looks to be taking
shape as the conference
schedule continues at Central
Florida Saturday before the
team hosts, Hillsborough and
Manatee Tuesday and
Thursday, respectively.
"We had Kayla Cross
coaching at first and she had
people running all over the
place," Falla added. "Which
shows me that they've
learned something. Maybe
it's starting to come together
for us."
Stay tuned.

Conditions wreak havoc for


Sebring Senior League


Special to the News-Sun'
SEBRING The Sebring
Senior Softball League 'at
Highlands County Sporis
Complex Tuesday, March 10,
felt the results of the time
change and the placement of
an ultra-bright morning sun.
There were .fewer, than
usual game comments from
the managers about their
teams activities'as the players
in the outfield heard the ball
drop in front of them before
their glove-shaded eyes could
see it.
On other fields the batters
were the ones, hampered by
the sun.
The Highlands Merchants
and Andrews Allstate
Insurance ,score was a mere
4-0 at the end of the fifth
inning, but ended with the
Merchants winning 9-3..
Merchants Ron Lewis had
a well-pitched game as well
as batting 2-for-3, including
two home runs.
Players having 2-for-3 at
the plate were Harry Bell,
Bobby Fulcher, Bob Roth and
Kyle Saunders.
Allstate's top hitter was
Rod Palmer, credited with
bringing in two runs.
Silent Salesman and
Highlands Independent Bank
each had their share of losing
fly balls in the sun.
Apparently, the Bankers let
a few more fall in for hits
than the Salesman, as the
score at the end of the "fly
ball circus" was 20-7 in favor
of the Salesman.
Extra base hits were plenti-
ful, with Don Cunningham
going 3-for-3 with a home
run and four runs scored.
Harley Smith hit 3-for-4 and
scored three times, Jerry
Johnston went 4-for-4 with two
doubles. Ray Concepcion's
four hits included a triple, Bob
Flack went 2-for-3 with a triple
and. Roque Socarras was 2-for-
4, including a double. -
For the Bank, Bob
Burley's bat was active again
in banging out a home run'.
Dale Demar had two hits
and Al Toratuta was 2-for-3,
including a double.


Highlands Ridge overtook
Royal Palms with a 16-10
final in an evenly played
game.
For Ridge, Andy
Timermanis had three hits
.and scored three times.
John Penna had'a big hit
to start the top of the seventh
inning when five runs scored.
Having 3-for-4 were Doug
Ebeling, Dave Majick and
John Bielman.
The Palms Ross Anderson
was 2-f6r-4, including two
doubles and four RBI.
Cal Bready hit 3-for-4,
Bob Floodine was 3-for-5
and four other batters went 2-
for-4.
The Blue Jays held the lead
over the Rebels with a 14-5
win.
Everyone who batted for
the Blue Jays had two hits
and executed good defense.
The Rebels Don Purdy had
3-for-4, including a triple and
Stan Turl hit 2-for-3.
At the Sports Complex on
Thursday, March 12, it was
not the cold, or the wind, so it
'must have been the heat that
held scores moderately low.
Highlands Merchants held
their own over Royal Palms
with a 13-7 victory. .
Merchants Wayne Hill was
3-for-4, but also was noted
for making some outstanding
plays at shortstop.
Victor Rodriquez hit 3-for-
3, including a home run,
and Jose Torres went 2-for-3,
also including a home run.
Bobby Fulcher was 3-for-3
arid the four batters hitting 2-
for-3 were Harry Bell, Ron
Lewis, Kyle Saunders and
Bill Todd.
Palms' Doug Hammond
went 2-for-4 with a home run
and had three RBI.
Ross Anderson had 2-for-3,
including a double and a triple,
and Bob MacCarrick and Cal
Bready both were 2-for-3.
Blue Jays and Highlands
Independent Bank finished
with the Jays on top 16-9.
The Jays Don Day hit a
home run and Dick Schiltz
also hit a homer, which gave
him an average of a home run


for each game he played.
The Banks J. C. Brown
was 4-for-4, Dale Demar and
Harold Buff each had 3-for-4
and George Walker was 2-
for-3.
The Bank rallied in the
seventh inning by scoring six
runs, but it just was not
enough to overtake the Jays.
Thursday's Field ,B must
have been jinxed for both the
Silent Salesman and Rebels,
to have such a minimal
amountof runs scored.
The Rebels and Silent
Salesman slugged it out for
their last meeting this year
and the result was, no doubt,
the lowest score of' all
League games this season,
with Rebels prevaflihg 5-1.
The Rebels seemed to have
magnets in. their gloves as
-most of Silent Salesman's
hard-hit balls ended, up as
easy outs.
Harley Smith led the
Salesman hitters with two
singles in three at-bats.
The Rebels fine pitching
was done by Larry Carlson.
Top hitter was Tony
Caristo going 3-for-4, Jerry
Mattis had 3-for-3 and hit-
ting 2-for-3 were Stan Turl,
Jack Gross, Jim Strietzel and
Don Matthews.
The Rebels Team had a
fine turnout of Buttonwood
Bay supporters urging them
to their victory.
Highlands Ridge held off
Andrews Allstate Insurance
for an 18-11 final score.
Ridge sported three home
.runs off the bats of Doug
Ebeling, Tommy Gaiowonik
and Andy Timermanis.
Curt Brown and John
Blielman batted 3-for-4.
For the Insurance, Rudy
Pribble did not hesitate to
say he was the losing pitcher.
Ken Crandall helped his
team by going 3-for-3, Dave
Wagner and Dan Webb each
had 2-for-3 and Bob lott con-
tributed with two hits.
There is one more week
of League softball still to
play, with the final games to
be held Thursday, March 19
at the Complex.

Braden River shows it's tops in district


Continued from 1B
FCAT, the time change, the
full moon."
Kidding aside, early mis-
takes set the tone as starter
Cody Higgins struggled to
find his control in the open-
ing inning, and defensive
miscues behind him didn't
do him any favors as Braden
River scored six.
"We've struggled getting
out of the first inning all
year long," Rewis said.
"And we're still trying to
figure out who to play
where and we're growing up
as the season goes."
The Pirates got one across
in both the second and third


as Higgins settled in and
held them in relative check.
And the offense picked up
a tad, answering each of
those runs with a Jesse
Baker homer to right in the
second and a sacrifice fly in
the second from Cody
Hoffner that brought in Josh
Acevedo.
But the Braden River
offense got back at it, scor-
ing three in the fourth on a
Kyle Phillips RBI single
and Michael Petrilla two-
run base-knock.
Hoffner added an single
to score Kevin Welborn in
the fifth, but when the
Pirates plated two more in


the sixth and Sebring could-
n't answer, the mercy-rule
ended it an inning early.
"They (Braden River)
wasn't quite as good as I
thought they were," Rewis
noted. "We've got some
injuries and have to figure
some things out but we'll
keep working at it and do
the best we can."
Back to work is where
they'll be Tuesday in host-
ing county-rival Avon Park
before welcoming St.
Albans of New York for
their annual trip to
Highlands County
Thursday.


Lady Streaks back to winning ways


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
After a strong perform-
ance in winning the
Heartland Conference
Tournament, the Sebring
girls tennis team picked
up where it left off on'the
regular season schedule,
topping Hardee 6-1
Thursday.
Kelsie Johnson went 6-
4, 6-4 at No. 1 singles
while Kaley Walter
fought to a three-set, 6-2,
5-7, 6-3 win over Lady
Wildcat Shelby Durrance
at No. 2.
Alyssa Kariofyllis took
the one loss for the ladies,
dropping the first set 6-3
before fighting back in
the second.
The comeback came up
just a bit short as Kayla
Wood held on for the 7-6
decider.
From there, Kelsey
Tucker and Shana Bassett
went straight sets in No.s
4 and 5 singles, respec-
tively, before Johnson and
Walter won 8-5 at No. 1
doubles and April Wallace
and Alex Birdwell went
7-5, 6-0 at No. 2 doubles.
The team remains
undefeated in match-play
at 5-0 and host
Okeechobee Monday.


Devils

hold on
Continued from 1B
Jeff Falis replaced
Heiring on the mound and
was able to hold out for
the win.
"We are fighting back
from some injuries,"
Jackson said. "Chevis
(Hicks) has a.broken hand
and Kyle (Jackson) and
Buddy (Duke) are both
recovering from injuries,
but we have really tough
games coming up in the
next few days, and we
need to be ready."
The Devils face off
against St. Albans and
Sebring in the upcoming
week, and Jackson is sure
that the next three games
will be worth watching.
"I always like to win
over St. Albans," he said.
"And then there is Sebring,
enough said there."
St. Albans comes to
visit Monday before the
Devils head to Firemen's
Field. Tuesday to face
Sebring.

Ways to bring birds to your back yard


Wherever you live, you can
bring comfort to wildlife and joy to
your own life by offering a bit of
habitat to nature's,creatures. You
can have a small wildlife sanctuary
in your own backyard. With the
right plants for food and shelter,
you can attract spring and fall
migrating birds as well as those
that might stay year round. Add
water and you can do wonders for
birds, butterflies and your own dis-
position.
If you want to be successful at
creating a welcome place for these
creatures, think like a bird. For
example, all birds need three things
to survive; food, shelter and water.
If a bird flies over your yard and
sees a close-cropped lawn, sheared
shrubs and flowering plants with
no blooms; it may think of your
yard as an unwelcoming desert like
area. There is nothing to eat,
nowhere to hide and no good nest-
ing areas. Therefore, the landscap-
ing choices you make, will be a
deciding factor in the success of
your backyard sanctuary.
Fruits, nuts, and seeds from.
trees, shrubs, flowers and grasses
will attract a variety of birds. Plant
plants that offer the type of food

Watershed

the birds you
prefer enjoy. The
same is true for
feeding stations;
the location,
feeder style and
food type will
determine the
birds that visit. If
you want to pro-
vide year-round
habitat for birds
and butterflies,
you will need to
provide a year-


round food supply.
To attract the greatest variety of
birds, use a station with a variety
of feeder types, such as gravity-fed
cylinder tubes, hopper boxes, plat-
forms and suet feeders. Position
them at different levels. Offer mil-
let for ground feeders; black oil
sunflower and thistle for finches,
and peanut and suet for woodpeck-
ers. Locate the station feeders next
to natural cover such as evergreen
shrubs or trees. The feeders should
be clean with fresh food or seed.
The same trees, shrubs, flowers
and grasses that offer food to your
backyard birds can offer them
cover. The birds use that cover for


escape, roosting, nesting and rear-
ing their young. Another option is
to build or purchase birdhouses
designed for specific species of
birds, with the opening size criti-
cal.
In addition, most birds need
open water for bathing, drinking
and controlling their temperatures.
A small, backyard pond or a bird-
bath will do the job. The sound of
flowing water attracts birds, so a
fountain or small waterfall will
increase your chances to bring
birds to your back yard.
The Natural Resources
Conservation Service has a well
illustrated, full color 28-page
booklet available on backyard con-
servation available at no charge. It
contains names of trees, shrubs,
flowers and foods that attract birds.
It is available by calling 888-
LANDCARE. For more informa-
tion, stop at our office at 4505
George Blvd., Sebring or visit the
NRCS Wildlife Habitat
Management Institute's Web site at

can taste the amount of sugar in
solution. They prefer sweeter con-
centrates, like those possible in a
sugar and water feeder.

Did you know?
Hummingbirds, the smallest
birds in North America, are the
only birds that can fly backwards.
.Their wings are adapted to helicop-


ter-like flight a circular whirl that
allows them to hover, move ahead,
sideways or backward.
