Event to

raise funds

for SPD K-9
By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffey@newssun.com
SEBRING Fea, the
Sebring Police
Department's K-9, has had
a long and successful
career, earning a well
deserved retirement.
Finding a replacement
will be no easy feat, how-
ever, especially as dogs
trained for public service
are expensive due to the
amount of time and work
that goes into preparing
them for the street.
For sometime now the
police department has
been soliciting funds to
raise the $15,000 it costs
to acquire a dog capable of
search and rescue, drug
detection, and other
duties.
Enter AmVet Post 21.
Last year Bonnie
Berdelle, a member of its
auxiliary, inaugurated the
Tom Berdelle Scramble, a
golf tournament in honor
of her late husband, a ded-
icated AmVet member
with a deep sense of com-
munity.
What better way to
remember her husband,
Berdelle thought, than use
this year's tournament to
raise money for a new
dog.
Which is how golfers at
every level have an oppor-
tunity to have a good time
for a good cause Saturday.
The second annual Tom
Berdelle Scramble will be
played on the Sebring
Municipal Golf Course
using a shotgun format.
Registration is at 7 a.m.
with tee off at 8 a.m.
Individual entrance is
$50, $200 for a team of
four.
One doesn't have to
play to contribute; the
police department will
gratefully accept any
donation. Without the
public's help, budget cuts
being what they are, the
police department doesn't
have the resources to find
a replacement.
Thinking positive, a
name Ahas already been
selected for a new dog. In
honor of J.R. "Jimmy"
Moore, a Sebring police
officer who was killed in
the line of duty in 1976,
the new dog would be
called J.R.
For more information
call Vicki Hicks at the
police department at 471-
5108.

LAKE PLACID -
Highway Park Liquors
Inc. has received authori-
zation from the Highway
Park Preservation and
Enhancement Council
and County. Engineer
Ramon Gavarrete for
temporary street closures
for its annual Easter Bash
from 4-8 p.m. April 12.
In order to facilitate


better traffic flow within

streets will either close or
have posted detour signs.
The closure points and/or
detours include: closed -

Cindy Marshall (standing), director of program development at Ridge Area Arc, moderates
a panel of local people during a workshop March 27 on making the arts and culture acces-
sible to folks with disabilities. On the panel were (from left) Deanna Pieretti, Robert Talley,
Toni Salvaggio and Sara Canli. The workshop was sponsored by Arc and the Heartland
Cultural Alliance.


Local residents


take part in


disability workshop


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Reaching
out to make people with dis-
abilities feel welcomed at
local cultural events: That
was the focus of the "Access
= Success" workshop on
March 27.
At the workshop, Beth
Gordon, from Miami, the
cultural access coordinator
for VSAArts of Florida,
shared a quote from Maya
Angelou: "People will forget
what you said, people will
forget what you did, but
people will never forget how
you made them feel."
And making people feel
welcomed is the mission of
VSA Arts, the international
organization aimed at creat-
ing communities where the
arts and culture are open to
all people.
As Jo Brenner, president
of the Heartland Cultural
Alliance, one of the co-
sponsors of the workshop,
put it, "We need to reach
everyone and to meet the
needs of all people in our
community. Our goal is to
help all people enjoy and


participate in the arts."
Along with Gordon, the
program co-sponsored by
Ridge Area Arc and held at
Grogan Center of Our Lady
of Grace Catholic Church -
also featured a panel of four
Highlands County residents,
all with disabilities, talking
about their experiences,
good and bad, in trying to fit
in to the demands of every-
day life.
The four included Deanna
Pieretti; whose left leg was
amputated when she was 34.
She is the founder and head
of H.A.L.L.O. (Handicapped
Americans Love of Life
.Organization), aimed at pro-
moting activities for people
with disabilities and increas-
ing awareness. "The general
public isn't used to seeing
people with disabilities," she
said.
Robert Talley, whois
blind, described his working
in a sheltered workshop at
Arc, putting air conditioning
parts together. "I also like to
write and there are lots of
things I want to do, like own
a computer." He also spoke


Boys and Girls Club starts

'Twenty Dollar Club'


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING What's $20?
It could be the key to the
future for a boy or girl in
Highlands County in need of
support and structure in his
or her life. That's the inspira-
tion behind the "Twenty
Dollar Club" campaign,
announced this week by Boys
and Girls Club Executive
Director Wally Randall.
The "Twenty Dollar Club,"
aimed at adults in the county,
is an effort to do two things,
Randall said Tuesday. One is
to develop a base of adults
who understand the impor-
tance of an active, thriving
Boys and Girls Club in
Sebring, Avon Park and -
hopefully soon Lake Placid
and give those adults an
opportunity to be important
supporters of the club at a
donation level of $20 a year.
"It's no secret that non-
profit organizations are hav-
ing a rough year," Randall


said. "The Boys and Girls
Club is no different and we
need support that we can
count on year in, year out in
order to serve the young peo-
ple in the community."
Randall said that fundrais-
ing events are a large part of
the Boys and Girls Club's
income each year, but this
year those events have raised
less than expected because of
the slower econonry.
Depending on them for the
organization's regular day-
to-day income is risky even
when money isn't scarce.
"Each year, you start over
from zero," Randall said of
fundraisers like golf outings
and hot air balloon festivals.
"Important as they are,
depending on events that can
get rained out is a hard way
to guarantee an agency can
continue functioning from
day to day."

Unemployment still

on rise locally and

around the state


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK -
Highlands County unem-
ployment rates rose slight-
ly, topping out at 9.5 per-
cent, but according to the
Bureau of Labor Statistic's,
another 75,000 Floridians
lost jobs stateWide in
February.
The U.S. Department of
Labor issued the unem-
ployment figures on Friday,
and the state's unemploy-
ment rate rose again last
month to 9.4 percent,
Florida's highest unem-
ployment since 1976.
Still climbing, but seem-
ing to slow slightly, local
rates skipped up another
two-tenths of a percent,
according to Cheryl Sharp,
director of Business
Operations at Heartland
Workforce, the non-profit
organization whose mis-
sion is to .provide work-
force development related
growth opportunities to the
tri-county area of
Highlands, DeSoto and
Hardee.
S "The rates are now part
of the state of the overall
national economy.
Healthcare is still a safe
/industry to be in, and there
are still jobs available
throughout the area," Sharp
said.
But that still means that
more than 4,100 in
Highlands are out of work,
and national predictions are
that although job losses are
slowing, they will continue
to rise over the next six
months.
Florida unemployment
increased by nearly a full
percentage point between
January and February and
stands at 1.3 percent above
the national unemployment
average of 8.1 percent.
The Agency for
Workforce Innovation
(AWI) released the num-
bers showing that 49 states
and the District of
Columbia recorded over-
the-month unemployment
rate increases, while all 50

states and the District of
Columbia had higher rates
than a year earlier.
Nearly one of 10 eligible
workers in Florida,
874,000, are jobless.
According to AWI, the
high unemployment rate in
Florida can be traced large-
ly to the loss of construc-
tion jobs across the state as
a result of the declining
housing market.
In fact, AWI states that
all major industry sectors
except education and health
services are currently in
decline.
Construction lost
114,600 jobs; professional
and business services lost
102,100 jobs; trade, trans-
portation, and utilities was
down by 86,500 jobs; man-
ufacturing declined by
35,100 jobs; leisure and
hospitality was down by
33,100 jobs; financial
activities was down by
18,300 jobs; other services
lost 13,500 jobs; informa-
tion declined by 11,500;
and total government lost
3,600 jobs over the year.
The industry job declines
at a more detailed level
were due to: Specialty
trade contractors; employ-
ment services; motor vehi-
cle and parts dealers; fabri-
cated metal product manu-
facturing; food services
and drinking places; credit
intermediation; repair and
maintenance; publishing;
and local government.

Pair of accidents claim lives in LP


Continued from page 1A
who was partially ejected
from the car in the crash. Her
injuries were serious enough
to require transport to Tampa
General Hospital where she
remained in fair condition
Tuesday.
Russell L. England, 49,
was killedjust after 9:30 p.m.
Monday when he was
involved in a crash on State
Road 70. Police reports indi-
cate he was driving east in a
Chevy van when for
unknown reasons he crossed


into the westbound lane
directly into the path of a
Mack tractor-trailer. The
vehicles collided head on.
England's van rotated
clockwise and was forced
onto the south grass shoulder
of S.R. 70. where England
was ejected from the car. He
was pronounced dead at the
scene.
The truck continued in a
westerly direction before
crossing over the eastbound
lane and onto the south
shoulder. It traveled down an
embankment before coming


to a stop, with the tractor fac-
ing in a southerly direction,
and its trailer facing a south-
westerly direction.
Tests to determine if
England had been driving
under the influence are pend-
ing. He was not wearing his
seat belt at the time of the
accident.
Homero Bedolla, the driv-
er of the tractor trailer,
received minor injuries. He
was wearing his seat belt and
had not been drinking.

they have hearing problems
and will not even look into
the possible benefits of a
hearing aid.
Sara Canall, whd has cere-.
bral palsy, is a backstage
volunteer at Highlands Little
'Theater. She gets around by
'using a cane, a regular
wheelchair and a power
:chair. Because her power
chair is higher than her regu-
lar chair, it'won't fit under
most restaurant tables, so
she has to use the smaller
one. The problem here, she
explained, "I lose my inde-
pendence. I need someone
else to push the chair."
Cindy Marshall, director
of program development for
Ridge Area Arc, who organ-
ized and moderated the
panel, described some of the
.ifficulties-people with dis-
abilities are facing, including


the scarcity of public bath-
rooms that can accommodate
a wheelchair. And some-
times, she added, even when
such bathrooms are avail-
able, there are no signs
pointing the way.
Gordon presented an
overview of the world of
disability, beginning with
some sobering statistics:
Some 56 million people in
the United States have dis-
abilities; one in two persons
over age 65 has a disability.
She covered a number of
topics, such as, types of dis-
abilities, the legal aspects of
disability, communicating
with people with disabilities,
service animals, the growing
use.of "assistive technology"
(items' used to assist individ-
uals with disabilities in such
areas as museums and art
exhibits); "universal design"
(where products and envi-
ronments are usable by all


people); how to increase
attendance by targeting peo-
ple with disabilities.
While attendance at the
workshop was not what she
had hoped for, Brenner was
pleased at the wide range of
organizations represented,
including several local
museums, mental and physi-
cal health care programs,
schools, Highlands
Hammock State Park, Toby's
Clowns, Heartland
Symphony Orchestra.
"We cannot forget those
who may not find everything
easy to do, or see, hear or
interpret in the same way as
others," Brenner said. "I
think we opened the.eyes of
organizations to start think-
ing how they can meet;the
needs of all our residents.
"The arts will always
bring joy to people from all
walks of life. We need to
remember that."

Emergency burn ban extended in county


Continued from page 1A
extension despite recent light rains through
the county.
The ban, which was originally instated
two weeks ago by the commission, applies
to all non-permitted, outside burning. Some
burning may be permitted on a case-by-case
basis by the Division of Forestry including
agricultural burning, but all others except
for barbecue grills are prohibited.
The drought index for Highlands County
still remains above the critical 700 mark,
out of a possible 800 on the Keetch-Byram
drought index. The KBDI is a continuous


reference scale for estimating the dryness of
the soil and duff layers.
The index increases for each day without
rain and the amount of increase depends on
the daily high temperature. The scale rating
decreases when it rains. The scale ranges
from 0 (no moisture deficit) to 800.
The range of the index is determined by
assuming that there is eight inches of mois-
ture in a saturated soil that is readily avail-
able to the vegetation.
An index reading higher than 550 is con-
sidered extremely dry.


Local Boys and Girls Club starts Twenty Dollar Club to raise funds, awareness


Continued from page 2A
He estimated the current cash on
hand for the Highlands County
Boys and Girls Club would last only
until the end of the school year.
The "Twenty Dollar Club" was
inspired by the Boys and'Girls Club
in Citrus County, where that organ-
ization has found a base of literally
thousands of adults who pledge $20


per year to the club, then ask two
friends to do the same. That base of
predictable annual income to the
club has given it the opportunity to
expand its services and plan for the
future growth needs in its commu-
nity.
Randall says the investment his
$20 Club's members will. make is
paid back in better-motivated kids


and better-educated adults.
"According to the state of
Florida, one-third of all our students
drop out of school before graduat-
ing. On the other hand, when a kid
is a member of a Boys and Girls
Club, 90 percent of-them graduate
from school. That's a cut of more
than two-thirds in the dropout rate.
A Boys and Girls Club experience


makes a child a better student and
when they graduate, a better
employee and more productive
member of the community,"
Randall said the local club lives by
the Boys and Girls Clubs' national
slogan, "The Positive Place for
Kids," and proves it by its results.
Randall said members of the
Boys and Girls Club's "$20 Club"


will be given advance information
about the club's activities, events
and success stories frequently
throughout the year with regular
"VIP" e-mailings sent to club mem-
bers and visits are always welcome
at either the Avon Park or Sebring
club locations. To join the "$20
Club," call the Boys and Girls Club
at either 453-0240 or 443-1737.

EDITORIAL & OPINION


News-Sun Wednesday, April 1, 2009


TODAY'S EDITORIAL


Just how 'public' are 'public


records' in Avon Park?


It is the opinion of the News-Sun, the cit-
izens of Highlands County, and the state
of Florida that public records are, well,
public.
But that does not seem to be the case in


Avon Park.
.It is clear in the Florida
Statutes, it is clear in city poli-
cy, but why does the city man-
ager in Avon Park feel that
public records are the domain
of just those at city hall?
A recent lawsuit from an
employee shows that the man-
agement team at city hall does
not always want to share the
information that rightfully
Belongs to everyone.
.And the lawsuit also shows
that the city is willing to waste
taxpayer dollars in attorney's
fees, for both sides, just to drag
their feet on producing records.
The employee felt he was
not getting a fair shake and
asked for his own records and
that the process, in his case,
was not open door.
The.News-Sun does not dis-
pute that the city manager has
the right or the duty to correct


employees, but. the process
should be one of mutual
respect and coaching.
Eight days later, the employ-
ee did not receive the'public
records, but was threatened.
with possible termination in a
letter.
It took 14 days and a lawsuit
to make the public records
request happen How can that
be a reasonable time?
And how can that employee
now trust that he is getting a
fair shake? Or even all the
records.
This is not the first time this
has happened.
A few months ago, a volun-
teer for the Southside
Community Redevelopment
Advisory Committee requested
'some records, and was told he
Would have to wait until after
city council had viewed them.


Why does he have to wait?
Public records belong to the
public, not to the council
exclusively. What decision
would any board or council
have to make that would
exempt those records from dis-
closure? ,
Recently, several individuals
throughout the.county have
been asking on the News-Sun
Web site a question that could
make a difference: What is the
recourse if you do not get the
records?
According to state statute,
the punishment for violation of
the public records statute (the
"Sunshine Law") is a fine of
$500, a misdemeanor, and
grounds for removal, but some-
body has to call the police and
file a complaint.
This is some serious stuff,
and goes to the very core of
being a "public servant." '
Without access to public
records, there can be no checks
and balances to the democratic
process of a small, or even a
large, community.
There is no reason that "pub-
lic" should ever be removed-
from "public records."

TODAY'S LETTERS


Greed is one of
Satan's greatest
weapons
Editor:
We do have a brilliant
knowledgeable president and
an excellent speaker. 'All
these attributes can be either
a' 'asset or a liability depehd-
ing on how they are used. He
has and is talking the talk and
I hope all of you are joining
me in prayer that he will walk
the walk.
You recall the old saying
that the squeaky wheel gets
the grease. I wonder if all
that money he collected came
with a price. These unions
take a big part in electing
their : favorite candidate.
When one is forced to join or
lose his job, that's not free-
dom; When we have Supreme
Court- judges that do what
they're told instead of what
the constitution says, that's
not the will of the people.
Someone once said, of the
people, by the people, for the
people. That has always been
a big part of our leadership
until the last few years.
Borrowing all this money
is not good nor the will of the
general public and loaning or
giving to all those who ,are
going broke is not the
answer. If they couldn't make
it before, how can we think
they could make it now.
We cannot reward irre-
sponsible behavior and
expect God's blessings,
God's Word tells us we reap
what we sow both individual-
ly and nationally. This makes
us all liable. We can't take in
all the world's poor and sup-
ply their every need. That is
taking its toll on our schools,
hospitals, prisons and every
part of society.
The leaders of this country
could see what was happen-
ing when they sat by 'and let
all the factories go overseas
and turned our ships over to
foreign nations. Now ship
yards are almost non-exis-
tent. In World War II our
president turned our factories
into making war. supplies
almost overnight. When we
do away with our defenses
we are ripe for take over. I
believe it was (Nikita)
Khrushchev who said he'd
take the United States with-
out firing a shot. It seems to
me that's in the making now.
If we want to fix the econ-
omy, we should get to the
root of the problem. You
know you can cut the top of a
plant, but if the root is left, it

comes right back.
The problems we have are
many and many are responsi-
ble, but we need to concen-
trate on fixing it period.
Closing our borders would be
a huge help and any leader
who disregards biblical
teaching, such as supporting
abortion and giving our tax
money to pay lawyers to
defend the opposition is 'on
the wrong track, denying the
privilege of prayer in our
military, our schools or wher-
ever one desires to pray,
removing our Christian sym-
bols from public arenas, tak-
ing our guns from law-abid-
iing citizens. Do you think a
criminal will be less likely to
commit a. crime in a home

don't think so:
God is still on the throne,
, in full-charge with all power.
I'm afraid we may suffer
great .consequences for what
.we've allowed to happen
before it is all over. Too
many have put too much
emphasis on money. Greed is
one of Satan's greatest
weapons. Many times when
we get all these things, we
find we didn't want them as
badly as we thought we did
and certainly didn't need
them. May God open our
eyes and may we seek what

Pay down debt by
reducing
government
Editor:
With the economy in the
tank, all the pundits the left,
right and all the ones in
between are exalting their
cause and solution to the
problem. But nothing has
stopped the ebb and tide of the
economy.
I guess I will weigh in with
my opinion. To start with, the


ratio between goods and serv-
ices is proportional or relative
to technology. . ,
When the pilgrims first
came to this country, they had
to grow their own food and
build their own liouse. They
had little or no food to
exchange for a service. While
we are talking small, we can
describe the problem. If the
farmer takes the family to a
restaurant the only thing the
farmer could do is to charge
the dinner. If the farmer had a
little technology and grew
more food, than he could use
then he would have something
to exchange for his dinner. So
the only way to measure the
ratio between goods and serv-
ices is debt.
In theory, all debt is bad.
But in practice we have to put'
up with some debt. Is' a mort-
gage really a debt? The bank
owns the property. As the
monthly mortgage payment is
made the ownership is gradu-
ally transferred. Where the
debt comes in is when the
income is below the require-
ment for the monthly pay-
ment. This goes for autos,
appliances, etc. Debt for short
lived goods like food, vaca-
tions etc. is bad. This debt has
no collateral.
In the public sector the
spending on service was held
to what was affordable, that is
until the credit card was intro-
duced.
The government sector is a
whole different story. The
government as a whole is a
service industry and is a
monopoly. Therefore the cost
of government must be added
to the service of the private
sector. The government has
grown immensely and getting
bigger. How big does the gov-
ernment have to get or has
gotten to unbalance the ratio
of goods and services?
Because of the huge govern-
ment debt, I would say that
the government is way, way


There is a proper way to

dispose of medications

too big. The negative balance
of trade has some effect on the
debt. The income and manu-
facture tax is not forthcoming.
"In. economics, the Laffer
curve is used to illustrate the
idea that increases in the rate
of taxation do not necessarily
increase tax revenue.
Increasing taxes beyond the
peak of the curve point will
decrease tax revenue ..." Have
we reached this point on the
curve?
.The only way to pay down
this debt is to reduce the size
of government.
When a politician is elected
to office they take an oath to
uphold the constitution. Once
they are elected they think
they can do anything without
regards to the constitution.
Where is the judicial branch
of government?
Russell Errett
Sebring

Does anyone dare
challenge the
concept?
Editor:
A generally accepted
premise is expecting differ-
ent results from the same
behavior is completely irra-
tional. During the Reagan
administration, David
Stockman, Reagan's budget
director, persuaded the
Republicans to embrace the
concepts of supply side eco-
nomics and the theory that if
.the top earners earn more it
will "trickle down" to the rest
of the economy. To achieve
this result, major tax cuts for
those in the highest tax
brackets was implemented
with the result that the
national debt was doubled
during the Reagan years.
The policies were changed
by Clinton and by the end of
the Clinton administration
the debt was eliminated.
Bush inherited a surplus and
introduced major tax cuts for
the wealthy which ultimately
led to the largest national
debt in our history.
Fast forward to 2009, and
the Republicans in the
Congress are again arguing
that the solution for our cur-
rent economic malaise is for
more tax cuts for the wealthy
as this will revive our econo-
my and create more jobs thus
solving our current difficul-
ties. Does anyone dare to
challenge the concept this
time or are we doomed to
repeat the behavior in expec-
tation of a different result?

You may be being poi-
soned by your own drinking
water, whether that water
comes from a municipal
source or your own private
well. This shocking revela-
tion came to me quite by
chance and began when I
asked County Administrator
(Michael) Wright if old, dis-
continued leftover prescrip-
tion drugs could be brought
to the Household Hazardous
Waste and Electronics Waste
Collection on March 7. Mr.
Wright said that question
was never posed to him
.before and that he "would
get back to me." He never
did, however Michelle
Drake, secretary to Mr.
Wright, was nice to e-mail
me a note from.Ken
Wheeler, director of Solid
Waste,, who ha'd responded to
my inquiry via Ms. Drake.
The note reads: "We can not
legally accept prescription
drugs because they are regu-
lated differently than house-
hold hazardous waste
(HHW). Officials no longer
recommend flushing meds in
the toilet because some resi-
dents are to be found in fish
downstream from discharge
points at wastewater treat-
ment plants." Please keep in
mind the statement regarding
"treatment plant" and not
flushing drugs down the toi-
let.
We happen to have a very
'knowledgeable young lady
who comes to our home to
perform physical therapy
exercise for my wife, Ruth. I
posed the question regarding
the proper .way to dispose of
'unused, out-of-date, etc.,
prescription drugs and she
volunteered the information
that Hospice facilities will
flush into the toilet all med-
ications belonging to a
client, upon that person's
death. This is done immedi-
ately.
Three Hospice facilities
were randomly selected and
,called by myself. Two admit-
ted that they do discard pre-
scription drugs "down the
toilet" and the other compa-
ny would make no statement
at all. Also, the two who
admitted to the "toilet" solu-
tion said they did so whether
the home was being serviced
by a public sewer system, or
by a septic tank system. Our
own Highlands County
Health Department was con-
tacted and thank goodness,
they had the right answers.
The "right answers" came
as a separate e-mail from
Ms. Drake and it was from
the Florida DepartmeAt of
Environmental Protection
titled "Homeowner's Guide
to Disposal of Unwanted


Guest
Column
Hank Kowalski

Medication." Right under
that title it states, "Don't
Flush That Leftover
Medicine!" It can cause con-
tamination to Florida's
aquatic environment because
wastewater treatment sys-
tems are not designed to
remove many of these med-'.
ications. It continues:
1. Keep in the original
container. This will help
identify the contents if they
are accidentally ingested.
2. Mark out your name
and prescription number for
safety.
3. For pills: Add some
water or soda to start dis-
solving them. For liquids:
Add something inedible like
cat litter or dirt.
4. Close the lid and secure
with duct tape or packing
tape.
5. Place the bottles)
inside an opaque (non-see-
through) container.
6. Tape that container
closed.
7. Hide the container in
the trash. Do not put it in the
recycle bin.
Do not give drugs to any-
one else.
Do not flush drugs down
the toilet.
Do not put drugs in the
trash without disguising
them human or animal
scavengers may find them
and misuse them. ,
That's it! That is what my
"investigation" came up
with.
What to do now? Perhaps
there should be a law enact-
ed prohibiting the disposal
of drugs by flushing them
down the toilet municipal
or septic; Presently, the rec-
ommendations as listed
above do not havb the clout
of law behind them. Here in
Highlands County, this threat
to our ground water should
not be taken lightly. Our
"ball-bearing" sand is a
blessing as it allows rain-
water to enter the aquifer
quickly; however, it also
allows contaminants to enter
easily too.
It' would be wise for our
county commissioners to
address this ongoing threat
to our environment and per-
haps the Highlands Soil and
Water Conservation District
should take this problem on
as a project.and include the
Natural Resources Advisory
Commission to assist.

who raped her to become

me food.: I guess I owed
him."

called.
Rosalee's behavior on the
stand was more controlled
while recalling her eventual
relationship with Armando
Rivera, the man she is cur-
rently married to and the only
male role model in
Altersberger's life from age
15. Rivera appeared to be
going straight after being in
jail for most of the 1990s,
soon after he was released he
started selling cocaine and
marijuana.
SWhen his mother found out
Altersberger was doing the
same thing, she was upset
and mentioned it to Rivera.
"Armando said 'let me talk
to him. If you tell him to stop
he is going to do it behind
your back anyway.' she
said. :"'If I talk to him, I'll
teach him to.doit so he won't
get caught." .
Thinking her son would be
safer, Rosalee let this contin-
ue. The three were eventually
arrested on drug, charges on
Altersberger's 17th birthday.
Rivera was sent away to
prison and again Rosalee was
without a man in her life.
The defense finished their
line of questioning by asking
Rosalee why she kept Joshua
after the rape.
"If anyone was going to
love me I knew my son
would." she said. "No one
can love me like my son and
that's what my goal was."
Focusing more on the facts
of the case on Monday, the
defense presented witnesses
who testified about the shoot-
ing from Quentin Kinder, the
man who fled into the- orange
grove during the traffic 'stop,
Sand truck driver Peron
Merice, who witnessed the
shooting from the cab of his
semi truck.
While stopped at a gas sta-
tion in LakePlacid, Kinder
told jurors something

County Sheriff's Office

Steve Houchin talks to jurors Monday about Joshua
Altersberger's day leading up to the shooting of Nicholas
Sottile. According to Houchin, Altersberger didn't have a
job and wasn't attending school, instead he played video
games and drank alcohol before the shooting occurred.


"Josh was like 'you better
not stop me or I'll shoot
you,'" Kinder said-from the
witness stand.
Mills tried to discredit the
statement, which was not
included in some 20-30 min-
utes worth of tape from
Kinder the day after the
shooting, when he, was taken
into custody.
"This is not the first time
he has made the statement,"
Houchin reassured jurors
during the redirect.
Merice recalled being
upset when Altersberger cut
him off, and parked behind
Sottile when he pulled over
Altersberger. He got out of
the car, the last man to speak
with Sottile, who told him to
get back.in the car and wait.
"I was able to see the
whole thing," Merice said
About his vantage point in the
truck. "Everything that was
going on in front of me."
The. view from the cabii,
Houchin explained, put
Merice in a position to wit-
ness what was about to hap-
pen.
"All I could see was fire
..coming out of that gun."
Merice said. "By the time I
looked, the trooper was
already hit and he was going
down."
Merice said Altersberger
then 'pointed t`e gun at
Sottile's head and pulled the
trigger, but the gun malfunc-
tioned.
Mills objected, saying the
statement that the gun mal-
functioned was speculation.
"Did you see the trigger
finger moving?" Houchin
asked Merice.
"Of course I did," Merice
said.
After the shooting. Merice
picked Altersberger out of a
photo lineup "first pick," he
said.
Closing out the testimony
of the defense were FHP'
troopers Edward Finneran
and Jay Spencer, two men
arriving early to the scene.
Finneran recalled Sottile's:
"routine request" for backup
as Kinder fled into the orange
grove and was on his way
from the FHP substation in

Lake Placid. He told jurors
the next thing he heard, and
the last words he heard from
..his friend and co-worker of
26 years. .
'10-24, I've been shot;
1'0-24,. I've been .shot,' "
Finneran recalled. "10-24
means send all the help' you
can."
Finneran was the first
trooper on the scene; .the
'shooting taking place close to
the FHP substation in Lake


Placid. When he arrived,
Sottile was "unresponsive."
Spencer arrived shortly
thereafter, .and repeated
Sottile's final woris, When
he arrived' shortly after
Finneran, there were already
civilians on scene.
"One 'gentleman was
cradling his head; he was in
another man's arms," he said.
He called Sottile's name,
but there was no response.
Sottile died from internal


bleeding, his subclavian
artery severed from the bullet
that impacted him in his col-
lar bone. Although he was
not wearing a bullet proof
vest, the shot would have -
been too high for the vest to
protect.
The defense brought seveii
witnesses to testify on behalf
of Altersberger on Tuesday,
and will call two psycholo-
gists to take the stand
Wednesday morning.

German family seeks US asylum to homeschool kids


Associated Press WVriter
'MORRISTOWN, Tenn. (AP) -
Homeschooling is so important to Uwe
Romeike that the classically trained pianist
sold his beloved grand pianos to pay for mov-
ing his wife and five children from Germany to
the Smoky Mountain foothills of Tennessee.'
Romeike (roh-MY'-kee), his wife
Hannelore, and their children live in a modest
duplex about 40 miles northeast of Knoxville
while they seek political asylum here. They
say they were persecuted for their evangelical
Christian beliefs and homeschooling their chil-
dren in Germany, where school attendance is
compulsory.
When the Romeikes wouldn't comply with
repeated orders to send the children to school,
police came to their home one October morn-


ing in 2006 and took the children, crying and
upset, to school. -
"We tried not to open the door, but they
(police) kept ringing the doorbell for 15 or 20
minutes," Romeike said. "They called us by
phone and spoke on the answering machine
and said they would knock open the door if we
didn't open it. So I opened it."
Romeike, like many conservative parents in
the U.S., said he wanted to teach his own chil-
dren because his children's German school
textbooks contained language and ideas that
conflicted with his family's values.
He had to pay fines equivalent to hundreds
of dollars for his decision, and he's afraid that
if he returns to Germany, police will arrest him
and government authorities will take away his
children, who range in age from 11 to 3.

Pediatric vision problems can lead to other difficulties


Many children cause dis-
:ruptions in class, do not'pay
:attention during lessons and
drop out of school early,
leaving parents and teachers
wondering why. The answer
in some cases may be an
undiagnosed vision problem,
which can contribute to poor
school performance and
delinquency.
National studies show that
'20-25 percent of more than
39 million children are at
risk to suffer from undetect-
ed vision problems.
Children's eyes are one of
the-most basic tools they use
for learning. Impaired vision
in children can seriously
affect learning abilities and
contribute to the develop-
ment of behavior problems.
such as attention deficit dis-
order. Children with vision
'problems are often not even
aware of their difficulty, nor
do they complain or seek
help. They have no point of
reference when they're
young, and assume everyone
sees as they do. Early dis-
covery and treatment can
prevent many of these prob-
lems.
Parents are often unsure
about when a child should
have their first eye exam. If
there is a family history of
vision problems, the first
exam should occur around
the age of 6 months. Not
every eye doctor offers this
type of pediatric examina-
tion, so be sure to check
with the office when making
:the appointment to be sure
that your doctor is comfort-
able with this.
If there is no family histo-
ry of eye problems, the
child's first eye exam should
occur around the age of 3,
and yearly thereafter.
Vision is the process of


obtaining meaning
from what is seen. It
is more than clear-
ness of sight. Good
vision encompasses
the ability to use the
eyes for extended
periods of time
without discomfort,
to analyze and inter-
pret information,
and to respond to
what is being seen.

ocular motility, and vision
information processing
skills, which allow us to
respond to our surroundings.
Vision screenings are
offered by many schools,
and while they represent a
positive effort to discover
those students suffering from
a vision problem, they also
miss 30-40 percent of binoc-
ular vision disorders in chil-
dren.
Binocular vision disorders
represent problems with both
eyes working together.
Children with these types of
problems have no difficulty
passing a vision screening.
They can often see 20/20
with each eye individually;
however, when using both
eyes at near distances (i.e.
reading) they may have a
problem converging (pulling
their eyes in) or accommo-
dating (keeping things in
focus at near). If a child can-
not look at something up
close without discomfort,
they won't! Unfortunately,
these children are all too
often mislabeled as "prob-
lem" children because they
can't seem to stay focused in
the classroom.

Third baseman Jose Rodriguez gets a little extra

Hillsborough Monday night.

Panthers power

past Hillsborough


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
AVON PARK The
South Florida Panthers
used a combination of
pitching and power to take
the rubber game of a
three-game set with the
Hillsborough Hawks, 6-5,
Monday night.
After the visitors had
erased a Pete Hernandez
RBI with a three-run fifth,
SFCC mounted a two-out
rally in the bottom of the
frame.
Shorstop Austin Gaines
started it with a single to
center and soon came
home when catcher Jerry
Neufang sent a frozen
rope over the left-field
fence.
His state-leading 16th
home run ne\er climbed,
more than 25 feet and
took but a fev seconds to
clear the Nard and plated
his 47th RBI, third in the
state.
Ryan Williams then fol-
lowed with a single to left,
one of his three hits on the
day, and scored when
Chaz Abeln sent a tower-
ing shot to the left of the
Panther scoreboard in
left-center field for a 5-3
South Florida lead.


The lead was shaved on
a James Mallard Jr. home
run, spelling the end of
the day for starter Adam
Simmons who struck out
five in his six innings of
work, giving up just two
earned runs to move his
record to 5-4 on the sea-
son.
"They have some guys
who swing really strong
bats," head coach Rick
Hitt said of the Hawks.
"Adam really held them
down, but as the game
went on, they were .start-
ing to get to him a bit."
But not quite enough,
as Gaines provided a bit
of cushion with his 11th
home run, giving him a
_tate-leading 52, RBI, in
the seventh.
Cameron Nelson and
Gaines would then finish
out the game in relief to
secure the win.
"I told the guys before
'the game, we control what
happens to us the next ten
games," Hitt said. "We're
all kind of jammed up in
the middle of the confer-
ence, except for Manatee,
and it's going to be who
plays the best these next

Luck not on

Devils side
By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID "We've had
a lot of years where luck has
been on our side," Avon Park
head coach Mort Jackson said.
"This isn't one of those years."
Such were the words after the
Red Devils had made a late
comeback, only to see it get
away in the opening game of the
Bill Jarrett Spring Break
Tournament at Roger
Scarborough Memorial
Stadium, a 10-6 loss to First
Academy, Monday afternoon.
Avon Park had taken a 1-0
lead in the.second on a Ty
Jackson home run to right, but
the Royals answered back with
two in their half of the frame.
The Devils tied it up at 2-2 in
the fourth with Josh Gordon
reaching on an error, stealing
second and getting to third when
Jeff Fallis also reached on an
error before scoring on a Josh
Rodgers sacrifice fly.
But First Academy got that
run back when Justin Powell

Streaks declaw Tigers


at Jarrett tourney


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
LAKE. PLACID The
Sebring Blue Streaks were
able to cap a 9-2 win over the
Clewiston-Tigers on Monday
night at the Bill Jarrett Spring
*Break Tournament in Lake
Placid.
"Pretty much everyone con-
tributed tonight. Their starting
pitcher always gives us trou-
ble," said Sebring's head
coach Hoppy Rewis after the
game.


Scoring six of their nine
runs in the sixth and seventh
innings, the Streaks gained
momentum as the game drew'
to a close.
The Streaks batted out 10
hits offensively, but left a lot
of runners on base until
Clewiston racked up two
errors in the seventh to give
the go ahead to Sebring.
"We seemed to come along
as the game progressed, but if

back


and I'm gone


Here it is, Monday
morning, and the feeling is
still fresh.
By the time you read
this on Wednesday, it will
have eased a bit, but right
now, knowing that I am out
of any possibility of win-
ning the ESPN Challenge
with my NCAA
Tournament bracket is kind
of a bummer.
As I wrote Saturday, in
Sunday's column, my two
finals teams were still
alive.
By Sunday night, those
two were both gone and
thus, so was I.
Granted, I don't do
much research and I really
don't get to see that many
college games during the
season.
But I see enough analy-
sis during the season, catch
a few games, from which
to make my 'gut' decisions
when filling out the brack-
et.
Apparently that's not
working, so I may try a
different tact next year -
the good ol' George


; .-4"I









Whereas he asserted that
every-decision he had ever
made on his instinct had
been the wrong one, that
seems, to be the case with
me picking these brackets.
Next year o whe r debat-
ing between a tough
match-up, I'll remind
myself that whatever
instinct I have regarding
which team to go with go
with the opposite.
Hey, that approach got

traveling secretary with the

ry over Central Security who
had 21.
The result of play was that
Seminole Tire was only one
game back of the Mariners
and a victory by the Tiremen
would have resulted in a dual
championship.
Early in the 1:.aIc. it
looked like that might happen
as the Tiremen took a nine-


run lead.
But the Mariners were not
to be denied as they scored
10 runs in one inning to take
the lead and then held off the
Tiremen to post the victory.
Tom Giownik was 5-for-5 at
the plate with a triple, Kyle
Saunders was 4-for-4, Moe
Pier was 4-for-5, substitute
Harland Newby was 3-for-4
and Lary Lane and Duke
Hensley were each 3-for-5
with Lane having a double
and home run and Hensley
having a double and triple for
the winners.
The Tiremen were led at
the plate by Max Hehn, Glen
Minnick, Gary Steeves and
Harley Smith who had four
hits each with Steves having
a home run and Cliff Bluml.
Ed Engler and Jeff Stanley
with three hits each.
Play on the other field saw
the Schoonis team top snake-
bitten Central Security by a
score of 19-11.
The Schoonis team was led
in the field by excellent plays

Mariners rise to top of


Lake Placid League


Continued from 1B
by Gary Tankersley at shortstop and Don
Cunningham who made three running
catches where he had to go a long way to
get the ball.
At the plate for Schoonis, Dick
Heinbach led the way with four hits,
Manager Dorin Quigg, Howard Carney,
Ray Hensley, Sean Kilduff, Darrel
Richards, Bob Sheets and Paul Stephenson
had three hits each with Carney and
Richards each having doubles.
Mike Jurmu hit the ball long and hard
each time at bat with two of these well hit
balls flagged down by a rolling catch by
Dana Hurlbut and a more routine catch by
Ray Wilson.
However, the third such hit went to the
fence for a home run.
Central Security was led at the plate by
John Miller with a home run and two dou-


bles, and Cal Bready and Dave Hoffman
with three hits each.
The final standings for the 2009 season
are the league champion Lake Placid
Marine team with a record of 14-6,
Seminole Tire at 12-8, Schoonis at 10-10,
Yates at 8-12 and Central Security at 6-14.
After league-play ended, a hardy picnic
meal was enjoyed by well over 100 play-
ers and their families with a trophy pres-
entation to the winning team.
Elections were held for the 2010 season
with Ray Hensley, Victor Rodriquez and
Howard Carney, re-elected President, Vice
President and Secretary Treasurer, respec-
tively.
The league expressed their gratitude to
each of their sponsors a's 'well as to the
league officers and players and the Lake
Placid parks department for an outstand-
ing season of fun and fellowship!


AP comeback short-lived


Continued from 1B
doubled home Justin
Burgess for a 3-2 lead.
The fifth, however, saw
the Devils bounce back
with a four-spot.
Matt Rivera led off with
a single to center -and
moved to second on Terrell
Conner's sacrifice bunt..
'Bash Brother' Kyle
Jackson then sent a mile-
high pop-up to short left.
With the bright-blue of
the cloudless sky, left field-
er Alex Hayes couldn't
quite get a grasp on the
pop, putting runners on
first and second.
Then, fellow bash brother,
Buddy Duke caught every-
one off guard when he
dropped down and sent a
bunt between short and third.
With the Aoyal third-
baseman having to cover
the bag, the ball rolled all
the way to the shortstop,
Duke beat it out and all
were safe.
Rivera then came in on a
wild pitch, Fallis ripped an
RBI single, Jackson came

Buddy Duke caught everyone off guard when he laid
down this bunt'for a hit to aid a'four-run rally in Avon
Park's 10-6 loss Monday.


in on a wild pitch and
Rodgers laced a double to
score Duke.
"We haven't had a lot of
innings like that this year,"
Jackson said. "The guys
did a nice job battling
back."
But it was a short-lived
lead as control problems
and less-than-rocketed hits
lead to a four-run answer
for the Royals to regain a
7-6 lead.


The momentum had

there is a precedent of suc-
cess.
Speaking of successful
precedents Tiger Woods is
back..
As many of us saw
Sunday which turned out
to be a nice bit of good feel-
ing after the demise of
Louisville and Oklahoma -
Mr. Woods matched his
largest comeback ever in the
final round to win a PGA
Tournament.
It almost didn't seem fair
to Mr. Sean O'Hair, playing
in the same group as Tiger
and facing the pressure of
that.
From the get go, you
could see it was weighing on
him.
At one point, an approach
shot on the, I believe, sev-
enth green,, an announcer
said that was his first 'good
shot of the day.'
As much as those
announcers keep insisting
that you can't let the pres-
sure get to you, as much as
every player on the PGA
'Tour knows that ad nauseum,
it never fails.
They all start pulling
shots, pushing shots, coming
up short, going too long .-
when just the day before, for
the three days before, they
were hitting fairways and


I------


greens with regularity in
building up the lead going
into Sunday.
I had a vision during the
round as O'Hair was analyz-.
ing an upcoming shot, one
of these days, as I imagined
O'Hair might be about to do
'at some point, a player is
going to crack.
Not 'hitting a slew.of bad
shots' crack, but crack up,
literally.
You know, while setting
up for a shot, knees quiver-
ing, sweat flowing as Tiger
strikes a pose leaning over
on his club, watching you.
Suddenly the player will
just stop, straighten up and
scream, "I can't do it! I can't
take it anymore!" and make
a mad dash toward the near-
est pond, diving in, swim-
ming to the other side,
laughing hysterically the
whole way across before
continuing to run past the
clubhouse, out through the.
parking lot, back to his
leased bungalow where a
news crew will finally find
him curled up in the corner
of his bedroom in the fetal
position.
One announcer threw out
the statistic that of the tour-
naments Woods has played
in during his career, he's
won nearly 30-percent of


them.
Think about that.
Tournaments that have
hundreds of players in them,
any one of whom is among
the best golfer's in the
world, and out of every ten
of them, Tiger's winning.
I thought of the compari-
son, since a-good batting
average in the major leagues
is that same percentage,
three hits in every ten at-bats
will have you as an All-Star.
But how many hits in ten
at-bats is someone going to
get when there are 100 field-
ers?
That's why you sol often
see, with a tournament com-
ing up, analysts debating
whether or not to pick Tiger,
or the field.
It's not 'who has a better
chance, Tiger or Phil or
Sergio or Padraig,' it's 'who
has a better chance, Woods
or everyone/anyone else?'.
And that is why, as horri-
ble as my picks usually go,
I'd stay true to my instinct.
Because my instinct would
be, of course, to go with
Tiger and there's no way
I'd go opposite in that.

time together. If Tom Brusha

swing.

Ewings recognized with Avon

Park's Yard of the Month Award


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK The use
of different types of mulch
makes a striking contrast in
the landscape of the home at
195 N. Anoka Ave.
Eucalyptus mulch is used in
the plant beds and red mulch
is used in a pathway leading
to the house and to the gate
to the backyard.
The path to the house is
lined with rocks that the cou-
ple has either brought back
with them from their trips to
Illinois, or had given to
them. Some of the "rocks"
are actually meteorites that
have fallen through the
Earth's atmosphere.
There are many plants to
be found in the bedding
areas. In front of the house
one will see plumbago, lan-
tana, pony tail palms, tiger
lilies, amaryllis, peace lilies,
porterweed, golden dew-
drop, red philodendron and
dusty miller, all arranged in
neatly kept beds. Hanging
from the sweet gum tree is a
large stag .horn fern, which
Ruby Ewing feeds banana
peels. Several plants in pots
add interest to the area, as
well as driftwood pieces and
unusual rocks. In a newly
added planting area along
the redwood stained fence is

a bottle palm encircled by
blue-eyed grass.
In the back yard, Ralph
Ewing tells the story of the
oak tree that was blown over
by a hurricane, leaving it at a
precarious slant. The tree
was saved and continues to
grow. Also in the back yard
are many varieties of plants,
such as variegated scheffel-
era, artillery fern, rabbit's
foot fern, orchids, chenille
plant, crepe myrtle, bromili-
ads, liriope, a large corn
plant, frangipani, elephant


ear, beauty berry, tibichina,
pampas grass, papyrus, blue-
berry, sea grape, poinsettia,
bird of paradise, croton and
Moses in a boat.
Included in the yard are
citrus trees and a mango
tree, along with a turkey oak,
which was started by seed
blown in with a hurricane.
Along the driven spider
lilies, African iris and red
sister cordyline plants flour-
ish.
Call 452-'1927 to nominate
a yard.

That's a lot of candles


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Best wishes and many happy returns for Pern Hunter who
turned 102 on Friday. A resident at Fairway Pines, Hunter
spent thirty years as a farmer in Lawrence County,
Missouri, and another 30 years as a machinist for the rail-
road in Washington State before retiring to Florida. Famous
among his neighbors for his good health and long walks, he
concedes he's slowing down a bit. Why not? Teddy
Roosevelt was President the year he was born, 1907, and
Neiman-Marcus first opened its doors in Dallas. The same
year American auto production reached 43,000, up from
25,000 in 1905. Here he blows out the candles on his
cake.
