Campers have been waiting for weeks


By TREY CHRISTY
irev.chrisyr@news sun.corn
SEBRING The annual
influx of 12 Hours of
Sebring patrons may seem to
just start this week, but fans
in RVs have been patiently
parked in line since January.
"You get here early to get
where you want to be," said
Ken Snow, who has been to
the race since the early '70s.
Snow's spot is on the
right side of the road before
the drive over bridge.
"It's party time over
there," he said.
Bruce Merkle is closer to
the front of the line. waiting
since Jan. 16.
"We've been in the same
place since they changed the
track." he said about his par-
ticular spot.
Some previously open
spots for RV parking turned
into pa)-per-foot spots a few
years ago. which made the
premium for a track-side
campsite even higher.
"It looks like Daytona
four wide into the front turn
trying to get those spaces,"

Samaritan's

Touch increases

services to meet

growing need
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING Just over a year ago, a
new facility opened to provide primary
health care for those in the community
who can not afford it..
And business is booming.
"Over the last 18 months we have
seen more patients than we' were antic-
ipating, but with God's help, we are
meeting a, lot of needs," said Diana
Furr, executive director for
Samaritan"s Touch Care Center.
Funded by donations.and grants, the
1,500-square-foot facility is in a ranch-
style home off of Memorial Drive, and
shares the parking lot with Comcast
Cable.
The center serves those who have no
medical insurance of any kind, includ-
ing Medicare and Medicaid, and have
an income at or below 200 percent of
federal poverty levels, but the service
received is top notch.
"We now carry over $100,000 in

SEBRING County com-
missioners voted 5-0 to issue
a state of emergency on
Tuesday, effectively banning
all burning without a permit
from the Division of Forestry
for the next seven days effec-
tive immediately.
With a drought index of
734 out of a possible 800,
assistant county administra-
tor Rick Helms informed the
commissioners of the emer-
gency status of the county
concerning the drought.
Commissioners decided to
meet again in a week to
decide if they need to extend
the ban an additional seven
days.

Report reveals sad state of states' mental health care


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Every three
years the National Alliance
for Mental Illness releases a
report grading the nation's,
and individual states' mental
health care systems.
The news, while disap-
pointing, was not unexpected
among experts in the field.
The nation over all earned
only a "D". Not a single state
earned an "A."
Fourteen states improved
their grades since the last
report in 2006. Twelve states
fell backward. Florida was
one of those 12, falling from a
"C-" to a "D".
Each state was judged in,
four categories: Health. pro-
motion and management;
financing and core treatment
recovery services; consumer
and family empowerment;


Florida drops from C-minus to

D rating; no state earns an A


and community integration.
Florida received a "D" for
its lack of infrastructure; a
"D" for information access; a
"D+" for services available;
and "C" for recovery sup-
ports.
Kathy Hayes is the director
of the behavior division of
Winter Haven Hospital. In
-that capacity she oversees the
Marge Brewster Center in
Sebring. -
The local situation, she
said, is mirrored throughout
the state. "We've made some
gains is the bottom line," she
said, "but there are still not
enough funds allocated.
Certainly in rural areas there
is less attention to mental


health issues."
The Brewster Center, a
local public provider of men-
tal health care, recently expe-
rienced budget cuts and has
had to reduce its staff.
Hayes pointed out that the
problem included insurance
companies that too often cur-
tail coverage. "The state is
pushing for mental health
coverage to have parity with
physical illnesses," she said.'
The irony, she added, is that
as the economic situation
forces cuts in mental health
budgets, more people are in
need of counseling because of
the stresses it is causing.
Robert Rihn is the CEO of
Tri-County Human Services.


He too is disappointed in the
lack of mental health support,
and the state Legislature's
reluctance to fund it.
He said this has been a
problem for years and points
with hope to Governor
Charlie Crist as understanding
the need for services. He
praised the governor's recent
veto of the legislature's
attempt to cut mental health
funding.
Rihn said a significant
number of the state's mentally
ill population are currently
housed in its prisons. Worse,
estimates are the state will
have to build 19 more to
house an expected increase.
"Too many Floridians
believe in the adage of, 'don't
do the crime if you can't do
the time,'" he said. "They
don't make the logical con-
nection of mental illness

being behind the behavior."
The current approach is a
ridiculous waste of people
and money he said, insane in
its own way.


There are currently 100,000
men and women incarcerated
in Florida, Rihn said. He com-

SEBRING It was
Thursday during the week of
the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Tests. The half
dozen teachers sitting around
the conference table at
Sebring High School
slumped in their seats, their
exhaustion clearly evident.
But, when asked about
their recent visit to Cape.

fast. and furious they occa-
sionally talked over each
other, suddenly filled with
fresh energy.
They were among 36
teachers who had boarded a
bus,at 6:30 a.m. March 8 and
spent the day immersed in
science thanks to a grant by
NASA's Educator Resource
Center.
The teachers told of being

SEBRING A three-
woman team from Florida
State University's Medical
School and College of
Information arrived in
Highlands County last week
to conduct a town meeting
addressing health care needs
in the region.. It was the
fourth of five such events
conducted throughout the
agricultural counties, spon-
sored by the state's Office
of Rural Health.
. Dr. Gail Bellamy, the
team's leader, said the infor-
mation collected during
these meetings will be used
to draw up a long-term plan
to address the issues raised.
To that end, she said, the
purpose of the meeting was
to hate the audience first
raise issues, and then to pri-
oritize them. A discussion of
ripple effect and cause and
effect would follow. Finally,
the group would be asked to
* select the three most press-
ing problems.
The group of about 40
participants came from
agencies such as the
Highlands County Health
Department and Department
of Human Services; South

College's school of nursing;
and the Redlands Christian
Migrant Association -
which provides childcare

Emergency Operations
Director Tim Eures informed
the board that without the
state of emergency, access to
resources and mutual aid may
not be sufficient in a large
emergency.
'"When the index .is over
500 we get concerned, and
this gives us the ability to
fight a larger issue if it
should arise and possibly to
,stop a few events from hap-
pening," Eures said.
Tim Elder, area supervisor
for the Division of Forestry
for Highlands and Glades
counties, informed officials
that normal rainfall for the
county should be around 8.94
inches by this time of the
year.
Highlands County is cur-
rently at just under three
inches this year, and had just
2.38 inches last year.
"As you can see, this
drought is over two years old.
The added freezes just add
fuel. The potential for prop-
erty damage is high, but so is
the potential for life hazards

to enact a ban on burning Tuesday.


and homes as well," Elder
said.
"We have had 63 fires
since Jan. 1 and lost 3,500
acres to fire. That number is
double from what we faced
last year. Over 15 of the fires
we had already have come
from back yards, and this ban
should cut that down. Most
of the fires were caused by
burning," Elder said.
Support for the ban is high


due to the recent 650-acre,
fire in Lake Placid that
threatened several homes and
the recent 19-acre fire that
caused an evacuation of the
Lakeshore Mall and the adja-
cent Post Office on Saturday.
At least three board mem-
bers will have to come back
to extend the ban for another
seven days next Tuesday,
County Administrator
Michael Wright said.


Continued from page 1A
"Dental care is in short
supply in Highlands County,
and we are fortunate to have
over 20 dentists who are
volunteering their services
here," Furr said.
"We received a lot of
donated dental equipment,
and we were able to serve
28 patients last week with
free dental x-rays donated
by one of our local dentists.
Since Dec. 10, we have had
over $50,000 in health care
donated to 131 patients. We
start this week providing
palliative care, fillings and
other services," Furr added.
Also currently on the
line-up for the center is
vision care, cataract surgery,
and glasses.
"We have some great
individual doctors around
the county providing eye
care and eye exams for
those in need. And some
would still be blind if it was
not for the cataract surgery
donated," Furr said.


The lab work is donated
by Florida Hospital and
Highlands Regional, and the
ranch-style building was
donated to the organization,
-and it is deeply appreciated,
but there is a need for more
space, and services, accord-
ing to Furr.
And because of the econ-
omy, the need for the servic-
es at the Samaritan's Touch
is already growing.
"We have a list of priority
areas of specialized care
that our patients desperately
need right now. Vascular
surgery, cardiology, pedi-
atrics, and psychological
care are all in desperate
need," Furr said.
'This is not about the
money," said Dr. Luis M.
Pena, who, according *to
Furr, left his private practice
to serve as the doctor-on-
call and medical administra-
tor.
"But this is sometimes
frustrating because people'
with real problems still can-
not get the health care they


need. We have people out
there suffering and with life
threatening problems that
get good care, but not all the
care they need. There are
some services we still we
need to secure," Pena said.
To help raise more fund-
ing to secure those services,
the care center is having a
"Night Under the Stars" at a
new model home in
Highlands Lakes Reserve
from 5-8 p.m. Saturday,
March 28.
Furr hopes that the.
fundraiser will not only
stimulate donations, but
raise awareness about the
needs.
"We will have a sit-down
dinner and a silent auction
with live music. And
because of Arthur Homes,
we may be able to meet the
needs of more patients out
there," Furr said.
For more information
about the event, or to volun-
teer at the care center, call
471-1870.

Opening up the arts to everyone


I n our society, people with
disabilities frequently find
it difficult to navigate the
waters of everyday life.
This includes being able to take advantage
of the arts and culture that abound in our
community. In fact, an organization .exists for
the sole purpose of creating communities that
allow people % ith disabilities to participate in
and enjoy the arts. In this state, it's called
VSA Arts of Florida and it's part of a nation-
al organization,
Two key staff members from VSA Arts of
;Florida will conduct-a free workshop on: how
organizations can open themselves up to peo-
ple with disabilities. 'It's set for 1-4 p.m.
Friday, March 27 at Grogan Center, Our Lady
of Grace Catholic Church in Avon Park.
We salute the Heartland Cultural Alliance
and Ridge Area Arc for sponsoring the work-
shop, entitled "Access =. Success." It's proba-

Obama's transparency on
abortion
Editor:
In 1984 while President Ronald
Reagan was in Mexico City he signed
an executive order (Mexico City
Policy) prohibiting any federal and pri-
vate U.S. non-governmental companies
from funding any international plan-
ning groups and clinics that provide
abortions. This policy essentially
barred any U.S. foreign aid for promot-
ing abortion as a method of family,
planning. Only three days in office'and
President Obama signed an executive
order reversing this 'Mexico City
Policy'.
The Partial-Birth Abortion .Ban Act
was enacted on Nov. 5, 2003, by the
U.S. Supreme Court, 18 U.S.C. SS
1531 (1) PBA Banf. This law prohibits a
form of late-term abortion, which is '
also called partial-birth abortion. In
2007 this law was again upheld by the
U.S. Supreme Court, in the case of
Gonzales v Carhart. The law itself con-
tains no reference to gestational age or
viability of the child (fetus). The pres-.
ect statute is directed only at a method
of a partial birth abortion procedure,
rather than at preventing any woman
from obtaining an abortion.
A partial-birth abortion procedure
can be used after 20 .weeks (4.5
months) of pregnancy, often to six
months, seven months or even later.
Guided by ultrasound, the doctor grabs
the baby's legs with forceps. The
baby's legs are pulled out into the birth
canal. The doctor delivers the baby's
entire body, except for the head. The
doctor then jams scissors into the
baby's skull. The scissors are then
opened to enlarge the hole. The scissors
are removed and a suction catheter in
inserted. The child's brains are sucked
out, causing the skull to collapse. The
dead baby is then removed.
Our current U.S. Congress has
agreed to bring to the table in a few
weeks a vote on a bill called 'Freedom
of Choice Act'. This bill would
enshrine abortion into federal law.
Parental notification now upheld in 44
states and virtually all other restrictions
oh abortion at the state level would be
eliminated. Congress will have no lim-
its of how much they can spend as
grants to support the abortion business
here.in the United States and abroad.
Under this 'FOCA' it has been-estimat-


first such' workshop ever held in\ offi

TODAY'S LETTERS
ed that as many as .125,000 more babie's
will be killed every year, that is 343
every day, or about 14 babies killed
every hour. President Obama has
already reversed the 'Mexico City
Policy' and he promised while he was
campaigning to sign the 'FOCA' into
law once it was placed on his desk.
How can we cry out in rage against
the death of 5,125 (as of January '09)
U.S. military men and women in Iraq
and Afghanistan and yet have an
absolute enthusiasm to spend taxpayer
funds to promote the death of hundreds
of thousands of innocent humans each
year by the brutal, inhumane method of
abortions ? We need to sound off, stand
up, and fight this battle for those who
have no voice.
Exercise your commitment to life by
contacting your federal congressman
and senators and tell them to kill this
dangerous legislation.

Amazing survivors strut
their stuff at fashion show
Editor:
I fully endorse;all. of the great words
in support of the March 7 "Celebration
of Life" Fashion Show for the benefit
of the American Cancer Society..
Organizers at Heartland Realtors
Association produced a well choreo-
graphed and beautiful fashion show
with artist skill and professional
integrity. The models enthusiastically
.gave of their time under the skillful
eyes and tutoring of Sherrie Abraham
and Dayna Carlton, both of whom
maintained a laser focus, instilled con-.
fidence, and guidedthe models to per-
fection.
Dayna used a velvet-glove approach
as light and gentle as a feather in teach-
ing the model to walk, pose and turn
gracefully. The models are amazing and
beautiful women. Each cancer survivor
has a compelling story of her ordeal
with cancer, yet each possesses a
resilient inner strength, a zest for life,
boundless energy, and an optimistic
attitude the combination of which is
infectious far beyond the individual
woman. Not only were they models on
the runway at Chateau Elan inside the
Four Points Hotel, but they are models
of how to deal with, overcome and beat
a crisis in everyday life.
.I congratulate all of the models for a
job well done!

he workshop will cover a host of topics
ted to access. You'll learn how to talk to -
about folks with disabilities by using
ople-first" language that places the
phasis on the person, not on the disability.
you'll learn about new developments in
'ices and technical assistance available for
ple with vision and hearing difficulties.
[ you'll learn about, changing the environ-
it so all people with and without disabil-

a few of the topics.

reservationss are urged. Call the HCA
ce, 385-2828; by Tuesday.



Many-volunteers served behind the
scenes. While my role was very minor,
it afforded me a front row seat through
all of the rehearsals: The critical volun-
teers were the stylists and makeup
artists, who gave generously of their
time and talents and also contributed
expensive baskets for the raffles and
door prizes., Special thanks to Pablo,
Kathy Allaire and Maria Simpson from
Allaires Hair and Nail Designs in Lake
,.Placid; Holly Slade and Chanea Turner
from Allure Salon and Spa in Sebring,
Holly's sister; and Bradenton Beauty
and Barber School. Their efforts along
.with clothes from the Dress Barn and
Dillards enhanced 'the radiant beauty of
the models.
A special thanks to. Jessica Gough.
Thanks to Four Points Hotel and Pastor
Bruce Linhart at Highlands Community
Church for offering places for the mod-
els to rehearse. -

Many don't care about
water restrictions
Editor:
Apparently St. Petersburg has had
enough with the lawn watering
scofflaws. Instituting the $175 fine for
each watering violation will hopefully
encourage residents, who place green
lawns above the need to save water, to
comply.
In the town of Lake Placid, Leisure
Lakes and other local areas, all one has
to do is drive around early in the morn-
ing, or cruise around Lake June toward
Lake June Point and Placid Lake and it
becomes evident that there are a lot of
people who just don't care or believe
they are above the rules that are intend-
ed to get us through the current situa-
tion.
Spme residents living on the lakes
and canals, who draw their irrigation
water from that source also need to be
put on notice that they need to turn off
those pumps. I have turned off my irri-
gation system and will wait for the
rains to return and encourage others to
do the same.
Now is the time for the officials in
Highlands County and the town of
Lake Placid to put similar fines in
place to curb this misuse of resources
and to increase them with each addi-
tional citation.

Sebring Mayor George Hensley reads a proclamation last week that he signed request-
ing all residents of this community join the Sebring City Council and himself in support-
ing Drug Free Highlands and the 'Be the Wall' campaign.


Hensley presents proclamation

to Drug Free Highlands


News-Sun staff
SEBRING Mayor
George Hensley was a sur-
prise attendee at last week's
meeting of Drug Free
Highlands. At that meeting,
he presented a Mayoral
Proclamation, requesting
that the all residents get
behind the organization's
efforts and its 'Be the Wall'
campaign.
In Hensley's proclama-
tion, he commented on how
the youth of this community
are the foundation of which
our future success is built.
He points out that 66 per-
cent of our teens choose to
not drink, but there is great


concern for the 34 percent
that do.
The proclamation goes on
to say that statistics show
that students that drink are
less likely to attend school,
pass school -courses, and
become productive commu-
nity members.
The lack of positive activ-
ities within the community
is not a viable excuse for
drinking, and underage
drinking cannot be consid-
ered a "right of passage," he
said.
The current state sub-
stance abuse survey indi-
cates that Highlands County
teens are choosing to reject


alcohol as part of growing
up, he said.
Hensley urged the coun-
ty's adults to serve as
responsible role models, set-
ting a good, example for the
youth.
, Continued community
response to underage drink-
ing can help to empower
teens to make the right deci-
sions when it comes to alco-
hol and other drugs, he said.
"When it comes to .teens
and alcohol be clear, be
firm, be consistent Be the
Wall because our youth
need us now more than
ever," he said.

Is fire beneficial to Florida? Yes ...

By MARY MARGARET
STAIK
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING When retired
U.S. Air Force MSgt.
Karoly Phillips passed away
earlier this year, his wife
Margaret wanted to do
something for the area vet-
erans in memory of her hush
band. Karoly Phillips served
22 years with the United
States Air Force. The
Phillips family was able to
travel all around the world
with the Air Force.
Mrs. Phillips contacted
Denise Williams with the
Veteran Services Office.
They arranged for a presen-
tation of $1,000 to the chair-
person of the Veterans
Assistance Committee,
Mike Basile. The committee
oversees the Veterans


teams require fire in order to exist. In fact,
"La Florida" was chosen for the state's
name by early explorers due to the abun-
dance 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 envi-
ronment, but it can be scary when your
home is built close to wild lands. This pres-
entation will provide simple Firewise prin-
cipals to help you prepare your property
before a devastating wildfire occurs. Safety
procedures to protect your loved 'ones and
property once a wildfire threatens will also
be discussed.
Reserve a seat for this free presentation
by calling Dorothy L. Harris at 386-6094 or
634-7695.

Assistance Fund for the area
veterans. Williams made the
presentation at a recent
meeting of the Veterans
Council of Highlands
County Inc.
The Fund was established
to assist veterans who "fall
through the cracks" and
need a one-time assistance.
In order to qualify for assis-
tance the veteran must have


proof of honorable dis-
charge with a DD-Form
214, and be a resident of
Highlands County.
The financial need should
be related. to an emergency
and generally of a sum less
than $100.
The committee interviews
veterans requesting assis-
tance, and the amount given
is determined case by case..

SEBRING ;-- Math students from Hill-
Gustat Middle School took part in the !World
Math Day challenge on March 4.
World Math Day was created by an
. Australian company that markets an online
math program known as Mathletics.
The goal of the competition this year, to
answer 182,445,169 correct answers in a sin-
gle day, was reached early on with the partic-
ipation of over a million students. The stu-
dents were paired with students on the same
grade levels from around the world as they
used mental math skills to answer a set num-
ber of questions in two minutes. Students
competed for the most correct answers in that
period of time and were scored immediately
so they could see how they placed in that ses-


Day challenge

sion.
HGMS math teachers Mary Pierce and Tina
Carlton signed up their students a week pridr
to the competition so students could practice
logging in arid competing against others.
The students were very competitive and
enjoyed playing against students from
Germany, China, Japan, Australia, Malaysia,
and Turkey as well as students from across
the United States. By the end of the 48 hours
of play, HGMS students had answered 47,529
questions correctly and a total of 452,682,682
correct answers had been recorded world-
wide. One U.S. student finished in the top 50
students and eight U.S. classes finished in the
top 50 classes. The results can be viewed at

that gives 4-year-old chil-
dren opportunities to
"Learn Through Play in
VPK."
VPK is free and available
to all 4-year-old children
who live in Florida and will
be starting kindergarten in
the following school year.
Passed in 2002 by Florida
voters, VPK is a constitu-
tional amendment designed
to ensure all Florida chil-
dren have access to a free;
high-quality pre-school


experience.
Summer VPK is 300
hours and provides a win-
dow of opportunities to'
learn and practice skills
needed to be successful in'
kindergarten.
In Highlands County,.
parents can enroll their eli-,
gible child and select from,
a list of local child care.
providers who are certified
to provide VPK. Enrollment
.began Monday. Call the

Each year, South Florida Community College's Mathematics
Department celebrates Pi Day by inviting students and staff
to recite the mathematical constant Pi to the highest num-
ber of decimal places they can recall. On March 12, SFCC
student Patricia Kelly won the contest by reciting Pi to 115
decimal places, and she received a pie plate, calculator,
and Village Inn gift certificate. The Greek letter Pi is the
symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its
diameter. Although it extends to infinity, Pi is typically
expressed as 3.14, and therefore Pi Day is officially cele-
brated on March 14.

we have fun," Snow said.
"This is my vacation,"
chimed in Joe Villone, a
Sebring resident and friend
of Snow's.
, Most of the people out
camping know each other,
not just Villone and Snow.
, "Everyone here is a regu-
lar," said Bruce Sallet, a
member of the 12 to 25,
member "IMA" group who
show up and drive around a
school bus converted into a
bar.
"We see people we don't
see when we get into the
race track," Nolen said.
Many of those regulars
were together for one last
night for Reapsummer's St.
Patrick's Day party.
They were in high spirits
Tuesday morning, wearing
green clothes while
Reapsummer tended his
grill, cooking 50 pounds of
corned beef through the
morning and into the after-
noon for the 2 p.m. feast.
"Tonight we'll get every-
thing packed up and ready
for tomorrow," Nolen said.
: This was quite a task for
some who had been camping
fqr weeks on end making the
campsite a home for them-
selves, like Sallet's group.
Bar furniture and a pool
table sat underneath a 20-.
foot high tarp, which had
light fixtures attached.
VBreaking camp was labor
ilitenrsive for the group, who
vill set it up again
Wednesday morning.
S"It's not work when
you're having fiun," said
Diavid Schuseter, part of the
IMA group.

Continued from page 1A
Board of Commissioners/
Solid Waste Department,
said that 2009 is the first
year she has felt confident
enough to locate recycling
bins at the races.
"Jesse McClelland,
director of operations, con-
tacted me to request that
Sebring International
Raceway and Highlands
County Recycling work
together to provide race
fans an opportunity, to
recycle aluminum cans and
plastic bottles," Reed said.
These two items were
agreed upon because of
their widespread use during
the four-day event.
McClelland secured two
locations at the track one
in the midway and one in
the paddock area. Both
locations are well traveled
and easily seen by race
fans.
Reed said that recycling
staff will be monitoring the
bin frequently over the
next week to make sdre
materials are being kept
clean and not being used
for garbage disposal. She
anticipates getting good
clean loads of recycled,
cans and plastic bottles.
Asked if she would do
this again, Reed said,
"Let's wait and see how
race fans respond this year.
We may be able to improve
in some ways by offering
more opportunities in other
ways.
"Jesse and I will keep
working on it 'til we get it
right!"


Teachers make NASA trip


Continued from page 2A
new technology that will
get u's to the next step. That
just blew me away.
"It makes you realize we
have to keep the kids inter-
ested in science."
SA younger teacher, born
w4ll after Neil Armstrong
agd Edwin "Buzz'" Aidren
walkedd on the moon, spoke
about how little of NASA's
history the average
Arnierican knows. She had
been a little embarrassed as
a science teacher to discov-
er she knew nothing about
the Apollo program before
the workshop..
'This was a painful sign
of the times, rather than a
reflection on any one per-
son, other teachers said.
NASA's history in general
has been lost.
Then again, here was an
opportunity for a teacher to
make a major contribution.
This was especially true
when it came to the myriad
of scientific advances and
new products brought about
by the space program,
about which many people
know nothing.
The fact is, the teachers
were told, world-wide, stu-
dents are not getting
enough math and science
education to keep them cur-
rent in the world, let alone
lead in it.
-NASA is one agency try-


ing to raise interest in the
so-called STEM courses -
that is, science, technology,
engineering and math.
Sandra Rankhorn, a
library media specialist,
said liking in Florida, so
close to Cape Canaveral, it
should be easier to engage
students. "The kids are so
close they can get there for
a day trip," she said. "They
can see the rockets go up."
"That's the first step,"
another teacher said, "if
you can say your eyes saw
it. It's a great way to get
kids motivated and excit-
ed."
Hickman added that
Cape Canaveral offers a lot
for a family with children.
She described a shuttle sim-
ulator that visitors can enter
to experience the feeling of,
a lift-off. "It's like a ride at
Universal," she said. There
also is a I-MAX theater.
Every teacher comment-
ed on how much larger and
more impressive everything
was in person. "Unless you
go there, you can't get a
real idea," said one.
In the meantime science
classes will learn about
micro-gravity, and how to
count stars thanks to NASA
materials. The hope is they
also will learn to love what
they're taught.
Google NASA education
to discover what is avail-
able for the classroom.


Continued from page 2A
pants contributing, that list
was quickly fleshed out.
Access to doctors went far
beyond the availability of
practitioners, several said.
Just getting to the doctor
was often a more difficult
challenge than finding one,
said Suzanne Crews, who
coordinates the 300 volun-
teers in Ftorida Hospital's
parish nurse program.
In fact, transportation
emerged as one of the key
quality of life issues holding
back health care in
Highlands, DeSoto and
Hardeeicounties. Not only are
too many individuals unable
to get to a doctor's office,
many elderly are house
bound, as are many individu-
als restricted to wheelchairs.
A number of the partici-
pants pointed out that finan-
cial 'concerns frequently
blocked access to medical
care as well.
Michele Heston, director of
nursing education at SFCC,
was alarmed at the number of
nursing students who could
not afford health insurance,
who had to delay their own
health care because they
could not afford it.
What kind of message did
it send, Heston wanted to
know, when students entering
a field cannot .afford to take
part in it.
Other issues specific to

In the same way, more

Language barriers are
another significant issue.
Families and their children
often are unable to' follow
directions because they do not
understand what the medical
provider is telling them.
Being able to understand doc-
tors is critical, many in the
audience said. It tied into pre-
ventative care, another issue
the audience felt needed more
attention.
Education was also consid-
ered important, for example,
learning how to eat a healthier
diet, or how to live with dia-
betes.
Many audience members
mentioned an overall lack of
health care for children,
including dental and occular

(From left) D.iana Furr, director of Samaritan's Touch Care
Center, Deborah Meade, with the Healthy Start Coalition
consider which issue is the most pressing for Highlands
County. Access to medical care, including the ability to
reach it and afford it, was the most urgent problem.


'Diana Furr, director of
Samaritan's Touch Care
Center an organization that
provides quality health care
for the low income who are
uninsured said the state
had to begin to think in terms
of regulatory reform, particu-
larly for the uninsured and
underserved. Not only was
there at times a duplication of
effort, there were cases that


fell between the cracks. Better
communication was essential,
but so too was stopping waste.
Furr said it was a crime that
so many medications, in-date
and still sealed, get thrown
out in nursing homes and
assisted living facilities.
Currently that medication
cannot by law be passed on to
a free clinic, it has to be
destroyed.

Lady Blue Streaks

get a leg up


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING Forgive the
dark joke of a headline, but
considering the rash of leg
injuries to befall the Sebring
softball -team, it seemed an'
appropriate pun.
And what's behind it defi-
nitely lightens .the mood
somewhat, as the Lady
Streaks got back to their win-
ning ways with a 7-2 victory
over DeSoto Monday night.
"With the adversity of the
last week," head coach Joe
Sinness said, "this is the hap-
piest I've been this year."
That's because, despite the
loss of team leader Sammy
Lower to a knee injury, with

DeSoto now looking
more like

and freshman
phenom Haley Pack hobbled
by a bad ankle, the depth of
the team shone through.
Kayla Clemens' was over-
powering on the mound,
averaging nearly two strike-
outs per inning, on her way to
13 in seven innings of work.
Catcher Wendy Negrin lead
the offensive output with three
hits and three RBI and Jamie
Hershkowitz added two hits,
reaching base three times.
But Clemens pitching abil-
ity and the Blue Streak bats,
even with the subtractions,
were known quantities, with
others just nov taking center
stage.
What was. surprising was
the solid defense, all things
considered.
"We probably had three or

four girls playing new posi-
tions tonight," Sinness said.
"They all played well and that
was real encouraging. And
Kayla hasn't had a chance to
,pitch as much so far, but we
know what she's capable of."
Which is something the
team 'also realizes about
,themselves.
S"They're really good and
it's tough without them,"
Negrin said of the crowded
injury list. "But we've got
talent that just needs to step
up and we can do well."
A big test looms, however,
as Lake Wales comes for a
visit Thursday.

Risi-Krohn Ferrari hopes to Defend


Podium Finish at 12 Hours of Sebring


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The No. 61
Risi-Krohn Ferrari 430GT,
prepared by Risi
Competizione, is seeking to
defend its 2008 podium fin-
ish at the 57th Mobil 1
Twelve Hours of Sebring
presented by Fresh from
Florida on Saturday, March
21.
The signature Krohn
green and blue Ferrari will
be driven again by Krohn
Racing team owner/driver
Tracy W. Krohn, Nic
J6nsson and Eric van de
Poele.
Krohn Racing and Risi
Competizione, both of
'Houston, Texas, have paired
for the third season in a row
to field a Ferrari 430 GT in
the GT2 class for Sebring
and the LMGT2 class at the
24 Hours of Le Mans.
Last year the Risi-Krohn
Ferrari team participated in
three of the ALMS races,
collecting a third-place fin-
ish at Sebring, fourth at Petit
Le Mans and llth at the
Laguna Seca finale.
They also competed at Le
Mans to an unfortunate
DNF. In 2007 the Risi-
Krohn Ferrari finished a
remarkable second-place
finish at the 24 Hours of Le
Mans race.
The sister No. 62 Risi
Competizione Ferrari 430
GT of Jaime Melo, Pierre
Kaffer and Mika Salo are in,
search of a repeat of the
team's 2008 ALMS GT2
Team and Driver
Championships in the
American Le Mans Series at
this week's season opener in
Sebring, Florida.
"I think GT-2 is the most

The No. 61 Risi-Krohn Ferrari 430GT, was taken out for some laps at Sebring
International Raceway Monday afternoon, as the team of Tracy W. Krohn, Nic Jonsson
and Eric van de Poele look to take a step higher on the podium in the 57th Mobil 1
Twelve Hours of Sebring presented by Fresh from Florida.


competitive class given the
car count and the number of
manufacturers involved,"
Krohn Racing Team Owner,
Risi-Krohn Ferrari Driver
Tracy W. Krohni said.
"Sebring takes a toll on man
and machine. I always feel
like' I have been in a war
anytime I have competed at
Sebring. This year will be no
different;
There are 15 cars already
signed up in the GT2 class,
which only amps up the
level of competition and
skill needed to survive ,the
field.
You have a very interna-
tional driver line-up in the
GT-2 class," Risi-Krohn
Ferrari driver Nic Jonsson


said. "That includes cars
from Porsche, BMW, who is
coming back this year with
experience, good car and
good drivers, and Ferrari has
seven good drivers. If you
start with the driving skill -
the GT2 class in the
American Le Mans Series is
probably among the tough-
est series in the world."
And, of course, surviving
the-field is one thing tak-
ing on the famed track of
Sebring International
Raceway is another. .
"Sebring is a great track
in that it is so technical and
there are so many surface
changes every lap and then
of course the track changes
dramatically with weather


and temperature," Krohn
said. "It is always difficult
to drive in a so called 'slow-
er class' such as we have in
GT-2 class in ALMS in that
you are checking your mir-
rors and making decisions
every lap regarding faster
traffic. Patience is a key for
all classes."
With driver Eric Van De
Poele as part of the GT2 trio,
Risi-Krohn has past experi-
ence in winning at Sebring.
"Sebring is really a race I
love very much because
every time I go there it is ai
fantastic race with a fantas-
tic crowd and fans," he said:
"Usually I have quite good

STARS tennis adapted to allow wheelchairs


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Special
STARS opened a whole new
door to tennis competition
this month by working with
people in wheelchairs on the
courts., -
Volunteers took their time
in teaching the basic funda-
mentals o'f the 'game to
almost 30 athletes with spe-
cial needs.
Special STARS provides
sports and recreational activ-
ities for more than 250 indi-
viduals with disabilities in
the Highlands County area.
This was the first year that
two men in wheelchairs took
to the courts at South Florida
Community College to play.
Tony Bock and 'Jimmy
Phipps, both of Sebring. gave
the game a try.
"I like playing tennis,"


Bock said Saturday after he.
finished his competition.
He realized it took a lot
more upper body strength
from him as compared to
other players who were
standing on their feet play-
ing.
Bock and Phipps both
competed against three other
men who were not in wheel-
chairs but at the same playing
level.
Players competed by doing
skill-level tests instead of
playing a game.
Bock got a first place
medal while Phipps got a
fourth place ribbon.
"What impresses you
about Tony along with his
athletic skills is his spirit,"
tennis volunteer Larry Levey
from Crystal Lake Club in
Avon Park said. "He doesn't


Panthers bounce back


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
As South Florida head
baseball coach Rick Hitt
said, quoting many a. team
leader, "each team in every
sport will have a couple of
defining moments that help
define their season."
One of those
moments played out
in the Panthers (21- 1
11, 2-4) bounce-back, S
12-7 win at St.
Petersburg College
Saturday afternoon,
less than 24 hours
after a wrenching 12-11 loss
to the Titans at home Friday
night.
"We have been doing
enough to get started and
within reach, but not finish-
ing for various reasons," he
said of some recent tough
come-from-ahead losses.
"Today we just decided to


leave no doubt."
' Johnny Sedlock toed the
rubber and pitched an effec-
tive five innings, giving up
just two earned runs while
striking out three.
Russell Kastor worked the


final four .innings,
surrendering three
runs to complete the
win.
The SFCC offense
was again in high
gear, but again
missed out on some
golden opportunities.
"We left nine on

loaded in the second without
scoring a run," Hitt said. "We
left a bunch on, as we had the
previous three games, but
today we kept answering
Johnny's quality start."

Walks

Red

Devils
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK The
Avon Park Red Devils'
pitching crew struggled
through five innings
before losing 10-0 to St.
Albans from Washington,
D.C. at Head Field
Monday night.
"Their bats weren't that
good," said Avon Park
head coach Mort Jackson.
"We gave up a lot of
walks. And you can't win
games doing that. Four of
the five runs scored in the
first and second innings
were off of walks."
Although not a district
game, the match-up with
St. Albans was important,
according to Jackson, to
help season his team.
"We have come along
well with the errors, but
we have to we have to
play one game at a time,"
he said. "Right now we
have the attitude that it is
easy to lose. We need to
break that habit."
Injuries have hurt the
Avon Park bullpen, with
Kyle Jackson favoring a
strained back and Devil
finisher Buddy Duke not
at one-hundred percent.
"We may have to make
Buddy a starting pitcher,"
Jackson said. "It seems
that some of the folks
think that we are going to
lose when certain people
pitch.We have to break
that habit, too."
The habit breaking
began Tuesday with a con-
test at Sebring before vis-
iting Frostproof Friday.

they raise $50 or more in pledges from
their community, however, the run is

year, when more people could partici-
pate. The local Red Cross decided to
.keep the same tradition this year.

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

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.

or hcarc@vistanet.net.

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.

disaster response.

may occur, but knowing what to do can
save a life.

With (back row, left to right) Head Football Coach Jared Hamlin, Principal Toni
Stivender, Assistant Coach Lavar Scott and Athletic Director Terry Quarles on hand,
along with parents Paul and Monica by his side, Blue Streak Dewey Sebring signs on
the dotted line to accept a football scholarship to The Cumberlands University in
Williamsburg, KY.


Dual Streak signing


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING Though still
a bit ill-at ease about don-
ning, red as their new pri-
mary color, two- more
Sebring Blue Streak football
players will be taking the
opportunity to continue
their careers on the colle-
giate level.
Linemen Dewey Sebring
will be taking his game to
Williamsburg, KY to play
for the Patriots of
University of the
Cumberland, while Thomas
Quigg will be heading
Northern State University to
join the Wolves of
'Aberdeen, S.C.
Other than: the drastic
change in uniform colors,
the two will be facing other,
challenges as they leave the
Florida climate behind.
"They say the first year is
the hardest, adjusting to the

cold," Quigg said. "I hope
to just get there, experience
it fully and get adjusted as
quickly as I can."
Sebring got a dose of the
difference in his visit to
Kentucky.
"It snowed twice while I,
was there," he said. "I'm
loading up on warm
clothes,"
But weather and color
coding aside, the chance for
two more players to move
onto college is at the heart,
of their former head coach,
Jared Hamlin's message.
"This makes 23, so far, in
the last five years," Hamlin


said of Blue Streak players
who have gone on to play in
college. "The biggest thing
is to help young men get a
college education through
football. We've had nearly
40 that have gotten the
opportunity, but for one rea-
son or another, not all
accepted it.
"Both these guys have
great upside and with work-
ing on. a few things, can
have great careers," he con-
tinued. "They talk about'
adjusting to the cold, what
they'll need to adjust to is
the speed of the players and
the game. But.with practice
and reps, they'll get there,
and academically, they will
both be fine. As I tell all my'
players, 'if you make All-
American, great, send me a
picture. But when you walk
across. that stage to accept
your college diploma, that's
what I want to see."'

FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS


Sebring
Recreation Club


By Chapman Chamberlin


Sebring Recreation Club
SEBRING George Kisel
and Carl Wile just had the
Parks Tournament, which is
now the Max and Ruth Tate
invitational. Grace Barnes,
Janice Patterson, Patty
Boswell, Ann Kisel took care
of the food. Gary Holloway,
Jim Mondry and John Bushee
set up the courts as well as
the hall. Lowell Jones led
with opening prayer followed
with the salute to our. flag.
Dorothy Boonen had 50/50
for the start of a good day.
Sixty players competed this
day and. some new friends
were made. Those that had
the most fun were the people
that won the most games.
Max and Ruth Tate spent
the entire day with making
calls and cheering the players
on. John Boonen was a caller
and John Bushee did a lot of
everything, to make it a good
time for all. When your club
gets the registration next year
be sure it is filled out and
returned at once. Some parks
did not get theirs back to us
in time this year.
The yard sale was another
success story for your club.
Ed Straub, Sonny Patterson,
Lawrence Ellinger, Jim
Mondry, Gary Holloway and
last for the men was Carl
Wile. Carl did what he hates
the most and that was to han-
dle the money from the onset
to the finish. Joan Mondry,
Mary Hardy, Janice
Patterson, Patty- Boswell,
Judy Holloway, Grace
Barnes, Marilyn Wile are a
few of your workers. This
group gave up two days just
for us, all work on their
behalf.
Line dancing is in full
swing at this time. The line
dancers dance all season at
the club on Wednesday
evening.
Membership opens all
doors at the club table ten-
nis, cards, Ladies Social
Club, Zumba, shuffleboard,
even a reading room, and
bingo on Thursday evening
with none other than Carl
Wile and friends. If you can
find a friend, bring them to
the fun with you.
March 10 County
Tournament was the last one
for, the season. It, should have:
been a big one because a lot
of park players learned of it
at the March 5 tournament.
The way to improve your
game is to shoot in a tourna-
ment, watch better players
tiaan yourself and learn, or
take lessons with John
t ehee. Nobody is too bad
aqd none are too good for les-
sons.
:Ping-pong has added
a bther afternoon to their
schedule: Tuesday, Thursday
atld Friday at 3:30 p.m, Show
up is all that is required on
your part.
,It is 'the day following the
last .for the season County
Tournament and the crowd
was down. No new shufflers
after.the park tournament.All
park players were 'told and
also invited to the last of the
season event. Players that
take the game seriously from
Sebring were Jim Edwards,
Judy Holloway and Anna
Eldredge. John Boonen, Stan
McCormick, Harold


451-1009

465-0416.


Cunningham and John
Bushee, on the pro side.
Forty-eight players have
completed another shuffle-
board league season. Some
can hardly wait for next sea-
son to get here. This season
finds in first place the Silver
Foxes with 49 points. Second
place finds The Drifters.
Third place has Nifty Fifties.
Fourth place is the Alley
Gators.
If you did not sign up this
past year for a team, be sure
that you sign up next year to
be involved with all the fun.
John Bushee, Jim and Joan
Mondry, Gary and Judy
Holloway all do more than
you know to make this as
nice as it is. Come and check
us out at 333 Pomegranate
Ave. (behind the Sebring
Police Station).

few did not and will be held
for another day. I
Hayward. Davis, retired
.attorney and former state rep-
resentative from this district,
talked about his recollections
of Lake Placid. Davis was
born and grew up in Lake
Placid and loves the small
town too much to leave it
now. His talk was like a
pleasant stroll down Main


Street of 50 or 60 years ago.
Many of the audience
could relate to the tales of
business owners and places
along the way. Others in the
audience came too late to
experience those days, but
appreciated the insight into
local history. It is the iespon-
sibility of the Historical
Society to preserve these
memories.


Old-timers and newcomers
alike are welcome to join the
society. The group meets
quarterly and maintains the
Depot Museum, '12 W. Pine
St. The museum is open from
1-3 p.m. Monday-Friday.
More volunteers are needed
to keep the- museum open
longer hours. For informa-
tion, call. President Betty
Roberts at 465-2266.
