Sebring ceremony

marks Child Abuse
Prevention Month
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY

SEBRING With a little Avon
Park girl fighting for her life at All
Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg
vwho was allegedly put there by one of
her caregivers, and recent cases of
other little girls gone missing or
found dead. the terrible consequences
of child abuse are on everybody's
" minds.
It is because of such heartbreaking
events that dedicating a month to
raising awareness about child abuse
is more than publicity, but an effort to
promote citizen action instead.
As Judge David Langford said dur-
ing a ribbon cutting ceremony
Tuesday morning at the courthouse in
Sebring, initiating April as Child
Abuse Prevention Month, "We can't
sit back and think somebody else will.

SEBRING Close to 100 resi-
dents of Sun 'N Lake showed up to
voice their opinion to the commis-
sioners in favor of changing an
ordinance which would gi\e the
voting power to the people.
In a 5-0 decision. commissioners
decided to "make it right", accord-
ing to Commissioner Guy Maxc'y,
and equalize the voting based on
land usage.
The changes proposed bN county
attorney. Ross McBeth allowed the
close to 2,400 residents equal foot-


ing in voting for issues specific to
Sun 'N Lake. such as the election
of a Board of Supervisors.
According to residents, until
today's vote the land-holding com-
pany National Recreation proper-
ties of Irvine, Calif.. NRPI. held all
the cards during election time.
"We voiced our opinion about
raising assessments, and we \were
not heard. We have to pay taxes.
but we don't have representation."
said Sun 'N Lake property owner
Ruth Hill.

to step up and do something out-

By the time families arrive in the

awareness is to encourage interven-

A crowd of about 50 people, many of
them dedicated to the service of chil-
dren, braved the chill wind Tuesday
morning to show their support for
Child Abuse Prevention Month. Pin
wheels have become the symbol for
the event, partly because they are
reminiscent of childhood. The
motion of the wheels also is a
reminder, that action is needed to
truly make a difference.

Adopt-a-thon at PETCO


a purrfectly good time


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING People and dogs turned out
-over the weekend in support of the Humane
Society of Highlands County.
The PETCO store at Shelby's Crossing
mall held its second annual Spring-a-thon,
part of the company's long standing custom
to raise money for the organization.
Dozens of donations from local businesses
and individuals \here raffled to raise money,
and dog and cat candidates for adoption were
brought in from the society's shelter.
By the end of the weekend 13 dogs and
five cats had new homes, and one Doberman
pincher brought in by Doberman Rescue,
had been saved as well.
Bug, an adorable, older Jack Russell, was
among the lucky adoptees.
So were Brit, a Labrador mix, and Duke, a
basset hound and terrier mix.
Both Brit and Duke have spent the last two
years at the society's shelter, so going to new
homes had special meaning.'
"We were in tears," said Barbara Clark, a
Humane Society volunteer who along with
SPETCO's general manager, Deana Anderson,
organized the event.
Well over $3,000 has been raised so far,
$1,305 during the Spring-a-thon alone.

Commissioners extend county


burn ban another week


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING
Commissioners voted to
extend the county-wide
emergency burn ban another
week on Tuesday morning
during their regular meeting.
Prevailing drought condi-
tions warranted the extension
despite recent light rains
through the county
The Division of Forestry is
still dealing with the effects
of an unusually dry fall and
winter.
The grass-killing freezes,


coupled with the dry condi-
tions, have prompted outdoor
burning bans in 16 of
Florida's 67 counties.
Although recent rains have
eased the threat some,
Highlands County still has a
rating of 659 out of a possi-
ble 800 on the Keetch-Byram
Drought Index (KBDI), an
index that is used to asses
wildfire threats.
The ban, which was origi-
nally instated four weeks ago
by the commission, applies
to non-permitted, outside
burning, but does not include

SWFWMD offers top

tips for Water

Conservation Month


Did you know that a
three-person household can
save 675 gallons of water a
month by simply turning
off the faucet when brush-
ing teeth and shaving?
Making these kinds of
simple changes to your
daily routine make a big
difference. That's why the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District is
sharing its top outdoor and
indoor water-saving tips
during Water Conservation
Month.

Outdoor tips
A garden hose with-
out a shutoff nozzle can
waste up to 530 gallons of
water in an hour. Use a
shutoff nozzle on your hose
that can be adjusted down
to a fine spray so that water
flows only as needed.
When finished, turn it off at'
the spigot instead of at the
nozzle to avoid leaks.
Rain shutoff devices,,
which are already required
by law on all automatic sys-
tems installed since 1991,
will shut off your automatic
sprinkler system if enough
rain has fallen.
Those devices can save
up to 30 percent or more
over a timer-only system.
Set this device to shut off
your system when a half
inch of rain has fallen.
Check the operation
of the rain shutoff device at
least once per year and
replace the one if it is not
operating correctly.
If rain is predicted
within 24 hours, don't irri-
gate.

Indoor tips
Based on a three-per-
son household, you can
save up to 870 gallons per
month by replacing older
toilets with new low-flow
models.


Save up to 690 gal-
lons per month by limiting
showers to five minutes and
installing water-efficient
showerheads.
Showering is one of the
top residential water uses in
the United States, account-
ing for more than 1.2 tril-
lion gallons of water each
year.
Approximately 17 per-
cent of indoor water use is
used for showering.
Save up to 390 gal-
lons per month by replacing
your conventional clothes
washer with a new water-
efficient model.
You can also save up to
175 gallons per month by
only running your clothes
washer and dishwasher
when they are full.
You can save up to
250 gallons of water per
month by rinsing fruit and
vegetables in a bowl of
water instead of under run-
ning water. '
You can save up to
200 gallons of water a day
by fixing a leak inside your
toilet.
You can save up to 30
gallons of water a day by
replacing a dripping faucet.
Install instant water
heaters in bathrooms and in
the kitchen so you don't
have to let the water run
while it heats up.
Each year the state, water
management districts and
local governments recog-
nize April as water conser-
vation month because it is
traditionally one of the dri-
est months of the year and
typically marks the start of
the peak demand season for
the public water suppliers.
To learn more about
water conservation and the
drought, or to schedule a
speaker, please visit the
District's web site at
www.WaterMatters.org/
drought/.


Make sure your sprinklers have a rain shut-off system
and only run during the appropriate times.

EDITORIAL & OPINION


News-Sun Wednesday, April 8, 2009


TODAY'S EDITORIAL

What more could have been done?


i Te were a little shocked and very
\, disappointed at the response to
Sunday's question of the day
posed on the front page of the News-Sun
and answered on www.newssun.com.


..We asked, "Is Highlands
County equipped to handle
an emergency situation like
Thursday's (April 2nd's)
anthrax scare in Sebring?"
With 85 people respond-
ing, 49.4 percent said yes;
50.6 percent said no.
.:.Given that the perpetrator
was behind bars by Saturday,
Highlands Regional Medical
Center successfully saw and
treated all of the county's
e'trfergency patients for 24
hours -! processing twice as
many patients as'it usually
sees in a day -and Florida
Hospital Heartland Division
had the internal procedures in
place so it was able to protect
its patients and keep them
comfortable, calm and fed,
we can't understand why so


many people thought the
response was inadequate.
The hazardous material
teams had the needed protec-
tive gear, the hospitals the
decontamination space and
extra security, the Red Cross
the needed support right at
hand, and all the first respon-
ders the training to rise to the
occasion.
What more could 'anyone
ask of our public safety agen-
cies?
In fact, if there was a
breakdown at all, it came
from private citizens who
naively brought the possible
danger into public places,
like the hospital and the' Sun
'N Lake town hall.
Please understand, we are
not pointing fingers of blame


in that regard. The truth is, if
any of us here in the news-
room had found 'a similar
envelope we have had to
admit we would have done
the same by the same, we
mean bringing it inside say-
ing, "Would you look at
this!"
The most important lesson,
then, has to be learned by us,
the ordinary citizens don't
touch anything suspicious
and, for goodness sake, call
the authorities right away.
It may be that government-
failures over the last several
years have made us so suspi-
cious, angry and weary that
we have become quick to
censure all government agen-
cies and public organizations.
But, folks, the anthrax
scare brought out the best in
everyone involved. The peo-
ple we trust to protect us
were ready and did their job.
We strongly feel gratitude
and admiration are the only
proper response.

Winds of Change blowing
across nation
Editor:
April is National Child Abuse
Prevention Month and pinwheels are
turning up in Polk County, all over
Florida and throughout the nation. The
pinwheel represents the need to priori-
tize children in our community and
is part of the Winds of Change cam-
paign. Winds of Change encourages
communities to provide safe, nurturing
experiences that promote healthy child
development, positive parent child
interaction and individual action to'
make our children a community priori-
ty.
As the lead agency for Child Welfare
Services in Highlands, Hardee and Polk
County, Heartland for Children has a
vital stake in the well-being of our
local children. Every day we witness
firsthand the devastating toll abuse and
neglect have on children. Prevention is
a key service component and priority at
Heartland for Children. We know that it
is not enough to respond to child abuse
and neglect; we must prevent it before
it ever occurs.
The month of April is an opportunity
to increase awareness about local
efforts taking place to prevent child
abuse and how we all have a role to
play in helping support families so they
feel safe asking for.help before a child
is harmed. Most parents in our commu-
nities are doing an outstanding job nur-
turing and supporting children; but
there are families, especially today with
economic instability, that are experi-.'
encing stressors. These families need.
support, to keep children from becom-
inig vulnerable to harm.
':Most recently, we heard of the tragic
death of 17-month-old Zachary
Johnson. This is one loss too many. It
could have been prevented. We all have
a stake in the well-being and safety of
children. It takes a willingness to get
involved be the eyes and ears for all
children whether they are yours, rela-
tives, neighbors, acquaintances,


TODAY'S LETTERS
strangers help keep all children safe.
It is vital that we turn our attention
away from providing a "safety net" for
some families toward creating a com-
munity-wide commitment to prioritize
children. Whether our children will
achieve their'full potential and develop
into the healthy, productive members of
our community-depends largely on each
of us. There are many ways to get
involved: Reach out to a friend and/or
neighbor who needs support. Volunteer
at schools or organizations that serve
the needs of children. If abuse is sus-
.pected, report it. Lend your voice in
support for programs that provide
proven, quality services for families
that prevent child abuse and neglect
before it ever occurs. Ask your local
elected officials how they are making
families a priority in your community.
Invite your child's friend over to din-
ner.
Raising the leaders of tomorrow
requires investing in and keeping chil-
dren safe today, not just our own chil-
dren but all children. It's your turn,
.help children and families.

School zone sign placement
should be handled
Editor:
I recently noticed a discrepancy in
"end school zone signs" around the
high school. If you travel westward on
Kenilworth, you will see a school zone
. sign, and flashing light. Turn right at
Highlands and almost immediately you
will see an "end school zone" sign.
Continue to the light in front of the
Advocacy Center, turn left, and after
crossing the railroad tracks you will see
another "end school zone" sign.
The problem is that there is nothing
in between the two signs that states
where you have re-entered a school
zone. This.is confusing and leads the
driver to believe that they have com-
mitted a very highly ticketable infrac-

viewing the first "end school zone"
sign.
I contacted the engineering depart-
ment at Road and Bridge, explained the
situation and was told it would be taken
care of immediately. After several days
Sof seeing both signs still up, I contact-
Sed the News-Sun. The News-Sun con-
tacted Ed Cardona for an explanation,
which was published April 3.
Mr. Cardona-was quoted as being
"very particular about school zones,"
giving them "high priority," and going
as far as to say "we drop what were
doing to see to it immediately" in the
article.
Mr. Cardona, I called about this ear-
lier in the week, and as of 2 p.m.
Friday, the second, redundant "end
school zone" sign is still standing. You
referred to the second sign in your
News-Sun interview as "redundant,"
and a "holdover" that would be
removed soon. Considering the confu-
sion, why didn't you have it removed
already? I had contacted engineering
earlier in the week about it. Surely they
share your desire for a quick response

Sebring


This February, Denver's
Rocky Mountain News died.
In March, The Tucson
Citizen followed. Meanwhile
hundreds of other American
newspapers reduced staff
and declared themselves in
significant economic trouble.
Many commentators have
lamented the passage of
local newspapers; others
foretell a not yet arrived
golden age of electronic
news reportage. But few
have mentioned one of the
biggest potential losers in
the demise of print publish-
ing: our local environment -
the clean air, water, land,
forests, beaches, wetlands
and wildlife.that enrich our
communities.
Since the days of muck-
raking reporter Upton
Sinclair and his establish-
ment-shaking revelations
about a corrupt Chicago
meat packing industry,
responsible local investiga-
tive journalists have shone a
withering light on corporate
polluters, unscrupulous
developers, dishonest offi-
cials, and incompetent envi-
ronmental regulators there-
by making our hometowns
better, safer, more enjoyable
places to live.
Likewise, local activists
have relied on community
newspapers for accurate,
unbiased reporting. With lit-
tle or no money to buy pub-
licity, environmental
activists, like Love Canal's
Lois Gibbs, scribbled out-
raged but informed Letters
to the Editor, or sponsored
public meetings and protests
that 'were sure to attract a
reporter from the local
paper. That's one way
activists marshal grassroots
troops against environmental
injustice.
In Anniston, Ala., for
example, it was a neighbor-
hood group called the
Community Against
Pollution (CAP) that in the
late 1990's spoke up for
West Anniston, "a part of
town that is largely poor,
largely black, largely forgot-
ten, and largely polluted,"
according to John Fleming,
then The Anniston Star's
editorial page editor. CAP
led the charge against a
grossly negligent Monsanto
Corporation that let toxic
PCBs leach' into soils, and an
equally negligent Alabama
Department of
Environmental Management,
"more of a permit facilitator
for industry than a protector
of the environment," said
Fleming.
But it was The Anniston
Star's reporting about CAP,
including the filing of a law-
suit, that helped bring the
issue to the attention of the
rest of the city and the state,
and moved the US
Environmental Protection
Agency to act. The paper's
reputation for integrity and
truth-telling helped shine a
light on West Anniston's
plight. And corruption -
whether in the form of toxic
waste or government malfea-
sance can't stand much
light.
You'll find thousands of
"light bringing" stories like
that of West Anniston in big
city editions, mid-size
dailies and small town week-

lies. One of the most instruc-,
tive recent examples I can
think of is that of the New
Orleans Times-Picayune,
which reported the likeli-
hood of Mississippi River
levee failures a year before
Hurricane Katrina, along
with an obvious reason for
those failings: the diversion
of federal funds away from
levee construction to the Iraq
War by the Bush administra-
tion.
But every example isn't a
matter of life or death.
Without the small newspaper
in my hometown of Vernon,
N.J., activists couldn't have
defeated a cell phone tower
slated for construction with-
in eyeshot.of the
Appalachian National Scenic
Trail, or the illegal trading
of a state wildlife manage-
ment area for a proposed
165-unit condo complex; or
the demolition of a
Revolutionary War-era tav-
ern for a Burger King. Those
battles played out on the
pages of The Vernon News,
with both sides vying for the
people's hearts ahd minds.
This is democracy at work,
even if it is democracy writ
small, not large.
So if you are looking for
the next big, breaking,
nationally important envi- :,
ronmental story, don't go
first to CNN or Google
News. Rather look for those
stories percolating upwards
from the pages of your com-
munity newspaper.
Or at least that is the way'
things were. In a 2008 edito-:
rial, John Fleming of The
Anniston Star summed up
the greatest worry of many
involved in community jour-
nalism: "If local media no
longer is local, how does it
fulfill one of its most essen- -
tial roles: informing the
community in times of
peril?"
Fleming was asking this,
question about a local radio
station that had recently
been mechanized and so
failed to report an oncoming
tornado. He might however
just as readily have asked
what would have happened
if there had been no local
paper to trumpet the peril
posed by PCBs to the people
of West Anniston?
As our economy
implodes, and deregulated
corporate shenanigans reach
unbelievable heights, it
would be foolish for us to
imagine that no company out-
there is quietly trying to dis-
pose of toxic waste in some-
body's backyard, or that
state or federal regulators
might not be asleep at the
switch as that waste gets
dumped.

to defend against such possi-
bilities in your community?

Avon Park Police Department Chief Matthew Doughney (from right) and Detective Christy
Harbaugh remove guns Tuesday morning from a wrecked APPD patrol car.

Crash sends APPD officer to hospital


Continued from page 1A
left turn and Coogan took
evasive action," Doughney
said.
The truck was turning into
the Avon Park Public Library
at 100 N. Museum Ave.
To avoid a collision with
the truck, Coogan veered left
and struck a tree head on.
The impact to the car was
nearly dead center.
The airbag deployed and
Doughney said the injuries
were "non-life threatening."
He was airlifted to
Lakeland Regional Medical
Center.
The police cruiser
appeared to be a total loss,
and Doughney said the-
department will salvage what
they can.
"Just pray for Ius,"
Doughney said. "We've been
through so much in the past
10 months."
The investigation into the
crash is continuing, but the
truck driver could be facing a
citation.
This has been a rough year
for the APPD and its new
chief, who was hired just
over a year ago.
In recent news ex-APPD
officer Adam .Willis was


'Just pray
for us.
We've been
through so
much in the past
10 months.'

MATTHEW DOUGHNEY
APPD chief

arrested again ,n April 2,
charged with domestic bat-
tery.
This comes after he was
charged with armed burglary
and grand theft on Nov. 19
after police say he stole
money from an abandoned
car while on duty in a sting
set up by the APPD and the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement.
Willis and Alberto Perez,
who was arrested Dec. 2 for
extortion, were the focus of
an investigation into. police
misconduct.
More recently APPD
Officer James Parker III was
charged with felony aggra-
vated child abuse of a 20-
month-old baby girl, who is
in. Very critical condition at
All Children's Hospital in St.


Petersburg.
After his March 29 arrest,
he remained in jail Tuesday,
held on $250,000 bond.
The department lost Marc
Wilbur when he died of natu-
ral causes on Christmas Day
2008..
Wilbur had been with the
APPD for 12 years and was
serving as a sergeant.
He was called an "inspira-
tion" by APPD.Commander.
Michael J. Rowan and
Doughney said he "left a
:.legacy fbr other members of
the. law enforcement profes-
sion to follow."'
In a smaller incident Jan.
27, a new hire on the force
caused a crash on Memorial
Drive when Officer Earl
Tilman rear-ended a minivan
with two occupants while
chasing a man in a Ford
Explorer he knew had a sus-
pended license.
Tilman, 19, had been with
the department for three and
a half.months at the time of
the crash but was described
as a model employee. The
damage to the police vehicle
was estimated at $5,000.
With the absence of
Coogan, the APPD will' be.
down five officers.


Pet adopt-a-thon a success


Continued from page 2A
PETCO will continue to
take donations until the end
of the month.
Of course donations are
welcome at the society any-
time.
Barry Foster and Louis
DeAngelis, local radio
celebrities with a show
called Kitchen Freaks, were
one of the big hits of the
day, as they sampled dog
food out of dog bowls.
"I was minding my own
business (at the station),"
Foster said during the event,
"when Louis came up to me
and said, 'guess what, we're
going to eat dog food'."
DeAngelis, standing by
Foster's side, laughed and
immediately added, "Barry
just looked at me and said,
'OK.'"
Just at that moment a man
came over, "Who's eating
the dog food?" he asked.
"We are," the radio jocks
said in unison, promptly
shoveling forkfuls into their
mouths.
The News-Sun also sam-
pled the dog food they were

There was a wonderful turnout Saturday and Sunday at
the PETCO store in Shelby's Crossing Mall for an adopt-a-
thon and fundraiser benefiting the Humane Society of
Highlands County. Here Kay Gay's (left) newly adopted
puppy named Rusty plays with Sadie, who had been
adopted earlier by Gabby Glurley and David Baker, (cen-

eating. Called Eatables, and
manufactured by Natural
Balance Pet Foods Inc., the
product is advertised as
being made of human quali-
ty ingredients. The flavor
called Hobo Stew looked
appetizing and was actually


tasty, the Chicken and
Dumplings could have used
salt and a pinch more sea-
soning.

County changes SNL voting


Continued from page 1A
Hill also addressed the lack of mainte-
nance of the undeveloped lots owned by
NRPI.
"The grass is overgrown, and recently a
wildfire broke out on one of those vacant
lots and endangered my home," Hill said.
The approved changes to Article V of
Chapter 9 of the Highlands County
Ordinances now allows one vote per acre
instead of one vote per lot.
NRPI owned a majority of the lots in Sun
'N Lake, and the change takes away about
75 percent of its votes.
According to McBeth, that brings the dis-
trict into line with Florida Statutes.
"According to Florida Statute 189, each
owner gets one vote per acre of land. Since
the landowners on developed property bear
the brunt of the assessments, it is only fair
to give them a bigger say in voting,"
McBeth said.
Commissioner Jeff Carlson agreed.
"Over my 11 years as an elected official,
no other topic has taken up as much time or


has created as much controversy as this one.
I told the people in this audience that when
I was elected to a commission seat, I would
do everything I could to fix this problem,
and I am going to do that today," Carlson
said.
The Sun 'N Lake Board of Supervisors,
led by General Manager Al Grieshaber,
opposed an affirmative vote, citing the 14th
Amendment to the Constitution as their
defense.
"Taking away a lot owners right to vote
because he does not own an acre offends the
equal opportunity clause of the 14th-
Amendment. Everyone is equal under the
law, when you elevate one class above
another violates our 14th Amendment
right," Grieshaber said.
Homeowners also questioned the validity
of the last election, since McBeth stated that
Sun 'N Lake was using the wrong' statute'
for its decision process.
"Those are issues we cannot decide here. I
Those are issues that must be decided in a/
court," McBeth said.

He further stated, accord-

Lady Streaks hang on to top DeSoto


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
After a week off for spring
break, the Blue Streak soft-
ball team was back at it
Monday, topping the Lady
Bulldogs of DeSoto .3-2 to all
but secure"ih' second seed in
district play.
"It was good win," head
coach Joe Sinness said.
"DeSoto's a young team but
very talented and very well
coached."
Sebring got their runs
early, putting up two in the
first and ohe in the second
before letting Kayla Clemens
pitching and the defense take
care of the rest.
"Kayla pitched a very good
game and really came
through for us," Sinness said.
"They had the bases loaded
\ ith one out in the bottom of.
the seventh but she struck out
the next two batters to end.


Clemens complete-game
effort saw her scatter nine
hits while striking out seven.
The offense was paced by
Carrie Dudek's 2-for-3 and a
Dino Lower solo home run, to
move the Streaks to 8-3 in
District 10-4A, trailing only
Braden River with one dis-
.trict game left on the sched-
ule.
That contest is a.cross-
county tilt with Avon Park
Thursday at Sebring before
the team finishes out the
schedule with non-district
games at Bartow Tuesday,
April 14 and a home date
with LaBelle Thursday,:April
16.
"The girls came out and
played well," Sinness said.
"After a week off with the
break, it was good to sec
them focused and ready to
play."'

'Bullisitic' a night of mutton bustin' fun

SEBRING The rodeo
came to 'town Saturday
evening as the annual
Bullistic event took over
Firemen's Field in front of a
full-house of enthusiastic
'spectators.
The cro%%d was treated .to
pre-ride music from the
Sebring Bluegrass Band
before the li'l cowboys got
things underway with the
'mutton bustin' competition.
Eight young'uns in chaps
held on for dear life as the
sprinting sheep came out of
the gates as handlers were'
ever-present for the %%ell-
being of the aspiring riders.
Jace Johnston came out
victorious in holding on for
the longest ride.
As the sun set, introduc-
tions to the bull riders %ere _-
made, a moving rendition of
the national 'anthem was '

plete-game effort to a 5-1 win
at Pasco-Hernando.
The \win came after a
Saturday afternoon. 10-4
conquering by the
Cohquistadors that head
coach Rick Hitt had called
"very disappointing.''
S"'We didn't play bad. we
just didn't pitch veil and
couldn't get the hits,' he said
Saturday. "They just came
out and beat us."
But the' mettle and never-
quit attitude showed up again
two nights later as Simmons
scattered six hits in nine
innings of work and held
Pasco to the lone run.
The Panther offense sa\%
various contributions as Greg
Smith, Tom Sicking and Jerry

LAKE PLACID A
pitchers' duel for three
innings exploded into a
slugfest as Lake Placid ral-
.lied .from a 6-3 deficit to
topple the visiting Lady Red
Devils, 7-6, Monday night.
Green Dragon Alyssa
Allen and Avon Park's
Ashley Carr matched each
other pitch-for-pitch in the
early going, with only an
RBI double from Lake
Placid's Ashley Paeplow,
scoring Ashley Wells,
spelling the difference for a
1-0 Dragon lead after three
innings of play.
Each team fields a level
of talent but, for the most
part, there is also a lot of
youth and inexperience -
and it was a combination of
all of that as some shaky
defense as well as hard hit-
ting saw the Devils (3-14,
3-8) explode for six runs
over the next few innings.
"A lot of times we come
out not ready to play, not
mentally into it," Avon Park
head coach Wade Jackson
said. "Then as the game goes
on, they get more into it."
With-Lake Placid up 2-0,
after Kylie Weber drove in
Paeplow in the fourth, Avon
Park tied it with two in the

one in the sixth.
The Lady Dragons tied it
at 3-3 in the bottom of the
sixth when Bailey Beeson
singled and proceeded to
steal her way around the


bases.
But Avon Park cashed in
three runs in the top of the

Lake Placid

wins late
Continued from 1B
around to score for a 6-3
lead.
Lake Placid, however, had
an answer.
Kayla Summerfield started
the final at bat with a single
and was moved to second on
a Cheyenne Wise base hit.
Both runners moved up on
a Beeson ground out, but
Carr struck out the next bat-
ter to get the Devils within
one out of the win.
Allen then walked and
Paeplow drove in two with a
shot to center to make it 6-5.
With the bases loaded and
two out, Diane Martinez
stepped to the plate.
"She was extremely nerv-
.ous and told me she didn't
want to lose the game for her
team," Dragon head coach
Marilyn Jones said. "I told
her I didn't want that either. I
gave her the take sign to
calm her down and reminded
our runners to move any
chance they got."
It was good advice as the
score was soon tied and then
won on pitches that got away.
"We just didn't make plays
when we needed to," Jackson
said. "Ashley (Carr) pitched
well enough to win. The girls
just need to get tired of los-
ing."
They'll have a tough task
Thursday at Sebring while
Lake Placid next :faces
Mulberry at home, also
Thursday.

Sebring Recreation Club
By Chapman Chamber/in

SEBRING Today at ice cream
shuffle we had eight full courts and
one walker.
Tom Bruha reported that Ed
Williams was hospitalized but is
now home. Bev Hann was hospital-
ized but now able to be home. Please
remember Ed and Ann O'Blenis,
Bob and Mary Adams, Bert "Spud"
Rohman, Victor Stanford and Tom
Jenkins in our prayers. Irvin Ishman,
our 95-year-old world traveler, is a
little slow getting around these days.
A phone call or card will mean a
great deal to these nice people and
you may even find that you feel bet-
ter having done it. Winnie Wells
heard from Virginia Stump today
and Larry had received two units of
blood today.
The yard sale was a huge success
this year. Thank you to all that made
it so Carl, Janice, Patty, Doris,
Mary and Al Hardy, Gary, Jan, Jean,
Judy, Betty, Jacquie, John, Lawrence
and Grace Barnes. I hope that not
many of the helpers were missed.
A big thank you to a very quiet
couple that has given of themselves
to Bill and Joyce Kaleita for all the
wonderful meals they prepared for


the club. This couple is new to the
club and has added a great deal to it.
It is not unusual for them to have a
guest shuffleboard player with them
also.
The desk closed March 31 for the
summer and reopens Oct. 1. Thank
you to all that gave of themselves to
be secretaries for a day for the club.
Joan Mundry, Dean Bennett, Ed
Straub, Jack Francis and Marilyn
Wile. The list of the subs is Shirley
Breckenridge, Jacquie Houston,
Judy and Gary Holloway and Carl
Wile.
Larry and Carol Weise do so much
for the club. They have the Blue
Grass signed for your 2009-10 sea-
son already.
The Ladies Social Club will have
a pizza party at the home of Betty
Geible. Interest within the social
club has picked up along with the
name change. Keep up the good
work and keep growing.
Ping-pong should have a group
come to one meeting and play a
game for all to see. This may even
help your numbers grow. If Tom
Bruha gets some of the Zumba mem-
bers to play I know that ping-pong
will become the fastest growing sec-
tion of the club.
At the directors' meeting March
28, we heard John Bushee say that
he wanted to give up our shuffle-
board chairman. He stated that 20
years was too long for one person to
have this responsibility. John is shuf-
fleboard in Sebring and what a loss
for us at the club. He is a one-man
team from planning county tourna-
ments to purchasing the ice cream
for the club. One person will never
come close to, being able to handle
all that John Bushee does for the
game of shuffleboard. We need to
attempt getting a person who likes
shuffleboard and is willing to wear
all the hats that go along with this.
Ed Straub told the board that this
would be the last meeting for him as
our president. He thanked all for the
help that he received. Ed was very
quick to work himself and did not
delegate all work to others.
Come out and support your club at
333 Pomegranate Ave. (behind
Sebring Police Station).

Town and Country
By Janet Day

SEBRING Thankfully, we
made it through the varying month
of March with a warm up and even a
couple decent rain days. Compared
to the devastation of floods, snow-
storms, volcanoes and forest fires,
we surely fared very well and look
forward to summer weather, which
will soon be here. I hope the forecast
is erroneous but we were advised at
a disaster preparation program last
week that the factors of E1Nino and
LaNina could bring us a heavy hurri-
cane season. Certainly, nothing we


look forward to but start your prepa-
rations early.
March activities were just delight-
ful in Town and Country this past
month. Wende and helpers prepared
a fantastic breakfast with all the
works on March 7. St. Patrick's Day
found Wende and crew preparing
either escalloped potatoes and ham
or corned beef and cabbage with all
the fixings. Both were scrumptious
and served to a full house with even
green desserts. Mary Beth and others
entertained us with some great jokes.
Peg Fraim has been great making the
clubhouse come alive with decora-
tions for each holiday. Our second
annual pool party, catered by
Sonny's BBQ was a huge success.
Again Mary Beth provided the
source of entertainment; the actors
were our own residents performing
various races using a foam noodle, a
clothes pin, a roll of toilet paper and
plunger. I don't believe most of us
have laughed so hard all season at
ourselves and the other participants.
Surprising how little it takes to
entertain us seniors. Thanks to
Wende and all her helpers, Mary
Beth and Peg for your efforts all sea-
son.
Social Director Wende and hubby
Hal will be leaving for the north
soon but activities will continue as
long as there is demand. To the many
folks who are on the northern trek,
we pray each one has a safe trip and
a wonderful summer season.
The park has been blessed with a
delightful couple from Craigville,
Ind. who just came down to Florida
for a couple months winter vacation.
It turns out they enjoyed Town and
Country MHP so much they brought
a home here. We are thankful for Pat
Vaillancourt that she sold her home
to a lovely couple. We welcome Bill
and Elizabeth Aeschliman to Town
and Country.
Gert Annett has also sold her
home on Cooper. Although she will
be missed, we understand she still
has the privilege of visiting so we
look forward to Gert's return at some
point next season. We will miss Peg
and Al Fraim, who will be returning
to their Sebring Village home soon.
Several of our hospital people
have returned home and are recover-
ing nicely. Harold McKeen, Dixie
Cooper, Helen Lucas and Ann Purdy
are all recovering well. Shirley
Young had recent shoulder surgery
and is home recuperating. We trust
all will be out and about soon.
Lee and Shirley Lundgren and
myself walked in the third annual 5K
Red Cross "Wellness Is 'N"
walk/run at Highlands Hammock
State Park on Saturday. It was a fun
time and we were all thrilled to place
first in our respective age groups.
We're hoping for even more Town &
Country participants next year so
start your training.
Several in our park continue to


improve their properties with lovely
gardens. Hats off this month to Lee
and Jerry Neideelski for their beauti-
fication efforts.
April breakfast .will be Saturday
with eggs, pancakes, sausage gravy
and biscuits on the menu. Ladies
Luncheon will be Wednesday, April
29 at Ruby Tuesday. Watch the pool-
side bulletin board for other upcom-
ing activities.
April birthdays include Bob
George, Fran Meinstra, Syl Kreuser,
Mary Lichtle, Mary Eggers, Mark
Sims, Paul Henneberry, Wolfgang
Topp, Marion Farezoco, Don
Blonde, Allen Barber, Alan Roberts
and Dixie Cooper (the big 90th).
Congratulations to all.

ing of you card for Bill Butts.. There

sew. If you have any sheets or mat-
tress pads you could donate, drop
them'off at Brenda's home or bring
them down to the clubhouse on
Wednesday at 1 p.m.
It's good to see Bob and Babette
Ford visiting. We've missed them
the past couple of seasons.
Bowling on Mondays, shuffle-
board games, darts on Tuesdays, line
dancing on Fridays have concluded
for this season. The last indoor exer-
cise class (Grace Becker's) will be
on Thursday, April 16.
I enjoyed taking long-time
Tropical Harbor resident Bill
VanPatten to the airport in Orlando.
He has sold his home here and will
reside full time in New York State.
He really appreciates all the help
everyone extended to him to make
his stay here this season possible. On
my way back from the airport. I
stopped to visit with Louise Smith in
Davenport. She has a lovely new
home but misses everyone very
much and sends hugs to all.
If you are able to volunteer two
hours on a Saturday morning to help
the residents of the Lake Placid
Health Care Center play Bingo,
please let Helen Burgan know.

This dairy is a full func-

The cows are milked twice

dairy. The kids toured the
entire dairy, even the state-of-
the-art office above the milk-
ing shoots where you can
either watch milking from the
window area or watch it on
the computer monitor.
They got to see the huge
holding tanks for the milk
awaiting transport. The dairy
has semi-trucks come in about
every 18 hours to be loaded.
The milk is cooled very
quickly and maintained at
specific temperatures until
pick up. Then it is pumped
into a temperature controlled
tanker truck until it gets to the
distribution center.
The kids had a lot of fantas-
tic questions for the owners of
the dairy. The 4-H members
got a hands-on experience of
how they are fed, milked and

have the "flu" by a vet that is
on call 24/7. It was obvious
that these cows have a specif-
ic job to get milk to con-
sumers, while at the same
time they are given great
nutrition and health care.
Sapp said, "This was a
great and exciting experience
for the kids, one and all. I
give many thanks to the own-
ers of Lake Branch Dairy for
giving us a rare opportunity to
get a hands-on experience and
a possible once-in-a- lifetime
experience for many of my
members. Without people like
them, our kids of today would
not be able to see what it
takes just to have a cold glass
of milk. Remember, without
Agriculture we do not eat.
Thank you farmers.

S Audubon Academy goes to the

Florida Scrub for education


Special to the News-Sun
HAINES CITY -The ancient islands
along the spine of Florida form an ecosys-
tem unique to the world.
It was in this setting that members of the
Local Highlands County Audubon Chapter
joined 31 chapters of Audubon from the
Panhandle to Miami to take part in and cel-
ebrate the fifth Audubon Academy.
This year it was held near Haines City at
the FFA Leadership Training Camp, which
is surrounded by scrub, a likable habitat for
Florida's indigenous bird, the Scrub jay.
Past resident Dr. Mark Deyrup, senior
research biologist, Archbold Biological
Station, was the featured speaker Friday
night. Deyrup's presentation was directed to
"Ancient Islands: Lake Wales Ridge. "
On Saturday night, as a part of the pro-
gram "Natural Florida in Word, Image, and
Deed," Dr. Raoul Boughton, of Archbold,
stressed the importance, of fire to the
Florida Scrub jay and other flora and fauna
in the scrub.
Chapter members previously joined with
members from the Polk County chapters,
Ridge and Lake Region Audubon chapters,
to help plan the event with Audubon of
Florida staff member Jacqui Sulek and
Joyce King.
Highlands County chapter assisted with
registration and the Ridge chapter hosted
the cocktail party Friday night.

Local residents participating in the fifth
Audubon Academy recently were (front

Helen Obenchain and Bob Hummel; (sec-
ond row from left) Dr. Raoul Boughton
and Fran Rolson.

Participants and members enjoyed
attending workshops, boat trips, kayaking,
and field trips in the scrub. Lake Region
chapter handled the native plant sale.
The weekend seminar provided knowl-
edge and information to help strengthen
each chapter as well as an opportunity to
rekindle acquaintances and renew friend-
ships.
A highlight for fun was provided
Saturday evening by Steve Morrison (of
TNC in Polk Co) and his band. Members
gathered on the porch of the main building
of the training camp for a sing-a-long
accompanied by guitars, banjos, and just
plain wholesome good fun with friends.

I Testimony for Starkey Hearing Aids


/


I have a rare hearing loss that started 10 years ago, calledAutoimmune Inner
Ear Disease (AIED). I lost my hearing in a 6 weeks period and I am present-
ly down over 85 decibels in both earl in the speech area. My hearing loss is
called a "cookie bite". I have been to several hearing specialists, including
Mayo Clinic, and lucky enough to find Lampe & Kiefer in Sebring, FL to fit
mie with hearing aids to accommodate my special hearing loss. My hearing
loss is so special that the owner and CEO, Bill Austin, of Starkey in
Minneapolis, MN made my present set of Destiny 1200 hearing aids in
2007, with 3 memories; plus a 4th memory that could be programmed:
Memory 1 is for normal conversation/TV Memory 2 is programmed for a
restaurant setting, and Memory 3 is for me to play the organ.

The key to hearing aids is the technician. Roseann Kiefer has the up-to-date
technical experience to program the hearing aids to fit individual needs. I
feel that Roseann Kiefer is one of the best Starkey technicians in the United
States. Roseann also has an excellent support staff, Bonnie and her mother,
Barb.They believe in teamwork and individual customer satisfaction.

I live up north in the summer months and in Florida during the winter
months. If we have a problem, we send the aid to Roseann and typically we
have a one-week turn around, even if the hearing aid has to go to the facto-
ry for repair.

Personally, I feel that Roseann has helped me have a better quality of life,
because without the Starkey hearing aids I would have a difficult time com-
municating.
