County expects

drastic revenue

cuts for 2009

Income expected to
drop by 20 percent
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@'newYsun corn
SEBRING All the heavy hit-
ters in Highlands County were
brought in Tuesday to discuss the
decline in revenues that county
commissioners can expect for next
year, and the outlook %was pretty
grim.
S"We need to plan for the %orse
and hope for the best." said
Commissioner Guy Maxcy after
being told by Highlands Counties
Office of Management and Budget
Director Bernice Gainer about a
predicted 20 percent drop in rev-
enues for the upcoming budget.
"I am hoping that the city gov-
ernments w ill work hard to define
What is essential and non-essential
for the county." Maxcy comment-
ed.
Commissioner Jeff Carlison
thought that the 20 percent predic-
tion might be a bit on the light
side.
"I think that these predictions
might be a little ros) for what the
rest of the state is experiencing,"
Carlson said.
SEvery inajor revenue source for
the, county was predicted 'to
decrease in the next fiscal year,
with the revenue source taking the
hardest hit being the ad valorum
collected on property tax.
Highlands County Tax Appraiser
Raymond C. Mclntyre stated that
there has been a 24 percent drop in
assessed property values, 'which
will account for an estimated
decrease of 15 percent, or more, in
total tax collections for the county.

down except for agricultural right

'No silver bullet' to solve LP sewer

problems; hook-up deadline postponed


News-Sun photo by TREY CHRISTY
Matt Sherwood tells members of the Lake Placid
Town Council that they could kill downtown mer-
chants if they force them to hook up to the city
owned sewer and pay a $3,200 connection fee dur-
ing Monday night's meeting.


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID The Lake
Placid Tow n Council spent
more than two hours hearing
complaints from business own-
ers and residents about the new
sewer ordinance during
Monday's monthly meeting.
Bringing a sigh of relief to
the room packed with nearly
100 people, councilman Ray
Royce made a motion to sus-
pend the mandatory June 30
hookup date that was unani-
mously approved, and later the
ordinance was tabled.


Under the ordinance, busi-
ness owners were worried that
they would be forced to pay a
$3,200 connection fee, along
with 'other potential fees, or
have their city water cut off.
In some cases the amount
they could be. charged, not
including a $2,000 credit from
the city, was as much as $8,000,
said former council member
Bill Brantley.
"When I was on the other side
of this table voting for it, it was
a nominal fee," he told the
council members.
He remembered discussing a


fee closer to $1,800.
"It's going to be ... $1,800 to
$8,000, that's not what these
people asked for," he said.
In addition to suspending the
cutoff date for hookups,
Royce's motion also authorized
the clerk to start entertaining
proposals from engineers to
perform a rate study to see how
the town can pay off the $2 mil-
lion loan it took out to construct
the sewer.
"I think for us to make an
informed decision we need to

Sebring CRA offers incentives to help downtown restaurants


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING In order to help
with the economic development on
the Sebring Circle, the Community
Redevelopment Agency voted to
help restaurants move into down-
town by offering incentive funding
to help with building renovations.
"It will open opportunities,"
Executive Director Pete Pollard
said during the Monday meeting.
The plan proposed by Pollard
focuses on providing assistance to
pay for the expenses associated
with large ticket items such as elec-
trical and plumbing needed to con-
vert an older building into a restau-


'The idea is to create a cluster of economic development and
give people choices. That should create a destination,
drawing people to the area for selection.'

PETE POLLARD
Sebring CRA director


rant.
"Items would include fire sup-
pression and venting. Items that
would stay with the building even if
the proposed restaurant goes out of
business. The upgrades would make
the building better for. no matter
what business moves in, and it
would then be there in case another
restaurant decides to move in,"


Pollard said.
"The idea is to create a cluster of
economic development and give
people choices. That should create a
destination, drawing people to the
area for selection," Pollard added.
The CRA board was amenable to
Pollard's plan, but wanted to place
some restrictions, and possibly a
funding cap, on the grants.


"I like the idea, but I would like
to see a good business plan for any-
one applying," board member
Kathy Malie said.
"I want to make sure that things
like stoves and stainless steel sinks
are not included," recommended
Jim McCollum.
Pollard assured the board that
only improvements that would


remain with the building would be
performed, and each application
would come before the board before
anything could be granted.
"We will probably have to deal
with these items on a case by case
basis," said CRA Chairman Gene
Breniner. "Just like we do with
facade grants. Each need will be
different."
The board directed Pollard to
make changes as recommended and
then to open for applications.
"We will learn as we go. Let's do
a few of these and improve the
process as we go along," Pollard
said.

Deranged man jailed after late-


night scuffle with HCSO deputies

Also, father and son arrested on same day in different incidents


News-Sun stqff report
SEBRING An Apopka
man was booked on a variety
of charges after a bizarre
confrontation with Highlands
County Sheriff's Office
deputies in the early hours of
Friday morning.
According to reports, the
trouble started about 9:50
p.m. Thursday when Larry L.
Odums, 26, was found in the
back yard by a fellow' resi-
dent of the halfway house he
lives in yelling "God let my
people in" and "Show me all
the dead people." Odums,
reportedly chased the other
resident down the street after
he came outside to see what
was wrong.
At 12:48 a.m. Friday,
deputies were called to 3114
Grouper St. in reference to a
suspicious person. When they
arrived, they found Odums
standing in the middle of the
street screaming. with his
hands in the air. When one of
the deputies got out of his
patrol car and identified him-
self as a deputy, Odums'
reported response was "I
(expletive) hate cops."
Deputies also reported that
Odums was yelling phrases
such as "I am the Antichrist."
A K-9 deputy arrived, and
Odums reportedly told
deputies that he could talk to
the dog with his mind while
making aggressive move-
ments toward the deputy and
the animal.
After Odums refused
orders to get on the ground
after being told he was under
arrest, one of the deputies
deployed his electronic con-
trol device, but one of the
probes bounced off Odums,
rendering it ineffective.
Odums continued to
approach deputies in an
aggressive manner, the report
said, so a second deputy fired
his ECD, which succeeded in
driving Odums to the ground.
One of the deputies tried to
handcuff Odums, but he tried
to get up and was hit with the
ECD shock once again.
During the arrest, Odums
reportedly kicked one of the
deputies, and the K-9 was
deployed, finally allowing


Larry L Odums Michael Shane Hall I Michael Shane Hall H


deputies to handcuff Odums.
Odums was charged with
battery on a law enforcement
officer and assault on a law
enforcement officer, both
felonies, was well as resist-
ing arrest, harassing a police
animal and disturbing the
peace. He was still being held
Monday on $5,000 bond.

Father, son jailed in
separate incidents
SEBRING A father and
son were arrested in separate
incidents on Saturday.
According to Highlands
County Sheriff's Office
reports, Michael Shane Hall
I, 38, of Kings Mountain,
N.C., was at .the Outback
Steakhouse in Sebring at 4:30
p.m. when he refused to pay
for his tab. Employees said
he got mad after he was told
he would no longer be served
any alcohol because he was
becoming disruptive.
Hall left the restaurant in a
van, but soon called the
restaurant and, reportedly in
a profanity-laced tirade, told


them that he didn't pay the
bill because they cut him off.
Within minutes of deputies
arriving at tie restaurant, the
elder Hall was located at the
Econolodge in Avon Park
after a disturbance complaint
was called in from there.
When deputies arrived, he
told them that he had walked
out on his bill at Outback, the
report said.
During the other distur-
bance, deputies report,
Michael Shane Hall II, 19, of
Wauchula was having an
argument with his wife.
While deputies were on
scene, the younger Hall
reportedly removed a knife
from his pocket, opened the
blade and turned toward his
wife, who was holding an 8-
month-old child at the time.
The younger Hall was
ordered to drop the knife at
gunpoint and complied.
He was arrested and
placed in the back of a patrol
car, where he reportedly
began kicking the back win-
dow, which caused $250 in

A deputy told Hall to stop
kicking the car, but he
refused and tried to kick the
deputy, the report said, so he
was shocked with an elec-
tronic control device and "he
stopped his behavior," the
report said.

with defrauding an innkeep-
er, a misdemeanor, and was
being held Monday on
$1,000 bond.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


Good ideas from Sebring's CRA make a difference


R recent developments in the Sebring
Community Redevelopment Agency show
that Pete Pollard and crew are making bright
decisions that are helping to shore up their district
even in hard economic times.


CRAs were designed by the Florida
Legislature to alleviate slum and
blight.
The special tax district that is cre-
ated by a CRA ensures that money
collected through taxes are kept in
the district, and not spread out around
a municipality. The areas that could
have been overlooked by expendi-
tures from the general fund, now have
the resources to get the job done.
Tough economic times have not
hurt CRAs, and their unique funding
structure allows them to stimulate the


economy at the same level as in good
times.
If used properly, a CRA is a smart
reinvestment cycle for taxpayer
money. Take those dedicated tax dol-
lars and combine it with creative
thinking, and you have economic suc-
cess stories to tell instead of doom
and gloom.
Pollard and the CRA staff are
doing that with the recent Habitat for
Humanity project.
Using tax funds to purchase a piece
of property and then selling it to


Habitat for $1 to build townhouses is
really a good idea, and literally
"boot-straps" Sebring out of blight.
The new townhouses will fill a
housing need, bring traffic to the
downtown, and put money back on
the tax role. The community reaps the
traffic, and the CRA reaps a slight tax
increment increase, and affordable
housing is accomplished.
Additionally, the CRA plan to part-
ner to provide help with renovations
and impact fees for restaurants look-
ing to relocate into downtown is
another example of thinking "out-
side-the-box" when it comes to eco-
nomic stimulation.
Since additional eating choices/
almost always bring more foot traffic,
already established restaurants have
nothing to fear, and everything to
gain, and again it helps create loca-


tion; one of the prime ingredients in
retail.
Sebring's Circle has a few open
holes currently, and these ideas are a
win-win for everyone.
Finally, discussions about partner-
ing with the Towne Square develop-
ers to use tax dollars to clean up the
gateway to Sebring's downtown is
also a good idea.
Called "the ugliest parking lot in
the state" CRA money will possibly
be used to improve the landscaping
and look of the facades. Work that
will be much appreciated by the
landowners in the neighborhood.
Success stories abound across the
state about other CRA districts, but it
is good to know that there are hard
working individuals who are bringing
that success home to Sebring.


Doctor has served his
community well
Editor:
I am shocked and upset by the
release of Dr. "Ragu," our 8-year-old
son's pediatrician since birth. He has
been a wonderful, loving and attentive .
physician. Unlike his former employer,
who has never ever bothered to even
return my phone calls when someone
suggested she was the "expert" on
childhood allergies. I understand she is
now holding.him to a no-compete
clause in his contract, which seems
rather vindictive at best and hateful at
worst.
Dr. Ragu has well served the Lake
Placid community. It would behoove
(his employer) to release Dr. Ragu from
the no-compete clause since she is
responsible for his leaving her firm and
not the other way around.

Doctor makes uncomfortable
situation easier
Editor:
I am writing this letter today to let
the public know of a great disservice in
the community. Dr. A. Raghuveera was
let go by Heartland Pediatrics this
week. Although, details are sketchy, I
was told he was let go for disagree-
ments in office policies and procedures.
Dr. Ragu, as he was called by all his
patients, is an excellent doctor. Never
have I seen a doctor so caring, nurtur-
ing, and as knowledgable as he is with
the kids. He never hesitated to call to
check on one of my sick children after
office hours. If there was a problem.
with a diagnosis, he would be the first
to do research and get my child to a
specialist.
My three children love Dr. Ragu, and
I have yet to tell them he is no longer
at Heartland Pediatrics. To do so will
break their hearts. He was their doctor
and their friend for the past six years.
My children loved to see him and
greeted him with a hug and smile. No
tears for them at the doctor's office. He
always teased that they never seemed
to act sick and enjoyed getting their
shots. He made the uncomfortable situ-
ations a lot easier for them with his
gentle demeanor.
I want a pediatricain I can trust with
my children. I hope Dr. Ragu will find
another office to practice in here in
Highlands County, and if he does we
will certainly take our business there.

Doctor already has a
waiting list
Editor:
I am writing to express my opinion
regarding the sudden and unexplained


TODAY'S LETTERS
termination of Dr. Raghuveera, the
beloved pediatrician formerly
employed by Heartland Pediatrics.
I am deeply alarmed that a practice
would terminate a doctor without let-
ting his patients know in advance. In
my own experience I thought there
would ne\er be someone to fill Dr.
Ignatius Chan's shoes when he moved
to California seven years ago. My
daughter was only 2 at the time and'she
and I trusted him to know exactly what
to do whenever .we needed him. We
were at a loss until the first time we
met Dr. Raghuveera, or Dr. Ragu, as
his patients call him.
He not only filled the shoes of our
beloved former pediatrician, but has
been not only our doctor, but also my
listening ear and shoulder to cry on
when I needed him. He has always
gone over and above to help his
patients. If he leaves this area, he will
be greatly missed. If he stays, he has a
new patient waiting in the wings.

Mattress woes cause plenty
of pain for customer
Editor:
My wife and I bought a new mattress
from a local company but are unhappy
with it and the customer service we
have received since buying it. My wife
and I can not even sleep on this mat-
tress because it is so bad. She had to
see a chiropractor and I also have a bad
back, but it has gotten worse. We need
your help real bad.
I would like to tell you what has
happened from.the phone call I
received April 7. The first call I
received was that (an employee) would
be at my home between 10 a.m. and
noon. The second call I received was to
see if we could change the time again
because he had a problem with his car.
... He arrived at my home at 2 p.m. He
never even called to tell me that he
made the wrong turn. I had to get in
touch with (the manufacturer) to find '
out why he was going to be late again.
When (the employee) arrived at my
home he had an attitude from the
beginning. When he entered my home
he followed me into the bedroom and I
showed him where the dips were in the
mattress. He did not give me time to
show him where the stitching was com-
ing out.
He pulled the mattress to the right
side of the bed and then got on the
floor with one knee.and looked under
the bed. He told me that there was no
center post and that there was nothing
he could do and that the company
would not honor the warranty. He then
told me that this was my problem with
a demeaning voice and showed me
another one of his attitudes ..
When I bought the mattress less than

Quality Inn staff did a great
job during anthrax scare
Editor:
As an employee of Florida Hospital,
I would sincerely like to thank Quality
Inn for their hospitality during the
anthrax scare (April 2).
All employees of Florida Hospital
who showed up for work early
Thursday morning were denied access
to the hospital campus. The deputies
instructed us to meet at the Quality Inn
where we would be informed as to
what was taking place.
The Quality Inn staff on duty was
very polite and professional. They pro-
vided conference rooms for us to use
and free coffee and breakfast to all the
employees who were present.
It's very heartwarming to see that
during a crisis people can and will pull
together to help one another out.

This week's news indi-
cates significant cuts to
Florida state agencies deliv-
ering services to our citi-
zens.
What has not been men-
tioned by the media is the
proposal to close 58 state
parks two. to three days each
week. On the days that
these parks open, it will only
be for eight hours rather than
the dawn till dusk access we
now enjoy.
More than 110 full-time
park employees and all sea-
sonal part-time employee
positions are eliminated
under this proposed reduc-
tion.
The Florida state park sys-
tem as we know it will
change significantly and the
entire operation for the
Office of Greenways and
Trails is proposed to be
eliminated.
Programs, services and
access to our public lands
will be dramatically cur-
tailed.
The park service will be
lucky to be able to pay their
utility bills and provide for
the over 20 million people
who visit our parks each
year.
While gloomy economic
news, bailouts and,greed
continue to make headlines,
Florida State Parks have
seen record attendance over
the past three months. This
is proof positive that
Florida's families need these
parks in order to participate
in healthy outdoors activities
during times of stress. A
family of four can visit a
park for an entire day for a
$5 per carload entry fee.
They can even bring along
grandma and grandpa.
While visiting their
favorite state park, Florida's
citizens can enjoy swim-
ming, hiking, biking, pic-
nicking and nature study, or
just spend time reconnecting
with each other.
Contrast this with the typ-
ical $28 cost of a two-hour
movie for just mom, dad and
the kids. This is not the time
to downsize the last afford-
able outdoor recreation for
our citizenry.
Some facts to put this cut
in perspective:

Over 6,000 volunteers
contributed well over one
million hours of free service
to the park system in 2007.
Individual parks enjoy the
support of more than 80 citi-
zen support organizations
that are passionate about
their park and prove it
through contribution of their
tiie and energy.
If you are as concerned
about the proposed changes
to our award winning state
parks as we are, please call,

legislators and tell them to
protect our public open
space and outdoor recre-
ation. Visit our Web site to

The Scope of Oriental Medicine


Oriental medicine includes acupuncture, Chinese herbology, dietary
therapy, exercise and bodywork based on traditional Orieital medicine
principles.
This system of health care is used extensively by one-quarter of the
world's population residing in Asia, and is rapidly growing in popularity
in the West.
Oriental medicine is based on an energetic model, rather than the bio-
chemical model of Western medicine.


_ Acupuncture
Acupuncture is the 5000 year old Chinese system of natural
S healing. Fine sterile needles are inserted into specific points of
*. the body to restore a balanced flow of energy.
Through acupuncture, Oi (energy) is allowed to move freely
Throughout the body, reestablishing balance. This balance
S .' helps the body achieve higher levels of health and well-
: being.
S Chinese Herbs
For as long as people and plants have coexisted, herbal
Medicine has been around in some shape or form. It has
been found to very helpful in treating conditions such as aller-
-, .. gies, ADD and ADHD, menopausal syndrome, chronic pain
.* and many, many other ailments. ...

CRA looking

at Towne

Square lot
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING The
Sebring Community
Redevelopment Agency
(CRA) joined in the
efforts with city hall to
renovate the Towne
Square parking lot at its
regular meeting on
Monday night by agreeing
to investigate the need for
landscaping.
Councilman Scott
Stanley was on hand to
ask for assistance in
developing a plan to
install proper landscaping
along the north side of the
parking lot where the city
owns a strip of land along
Kenilworth Boulevard.
"We need to get this
moving along, and your
efforts could help,"
Stanley said.
"I don't think they can
comply with both the cur-
rent landscaping regula-
tions and the current park-
ing regulations, but we
are looking at a happy
compromise," Stanley
added..
.Stanley led the discus-
sion about improving the
parking lot, which borders
on Lakeview to the west,
during the city meeting
last Tuesday, arid spoke of
the need to do something
for the lot.
S"Anything will improve
the look of the:area, espe-
cially around that side
where all you can see is
the back of the building.
The Nhaggling will begin
when we start discussing
the number of'islands we,
would like; to .see
installed," Stanley added.
Further discussion
about the 'area led to the
desire to extend the cur-
rent street renovations on
Kenilworth all the way to
Lakeview.
"I think that road needs-
to be finished, and the
sooner the better," Pete
Pollard, CRA executive
director,, said.

Concerned citizens and business owners packed Lake Placid's council chambers Monday
to hear the Town Council address the proposed sewer and connection fees for area resi-
dents and businesses during the monthly meeting.

have accurate numberss" Royce said. "We
need to have ... four or five different
options."
In addition to Brantley, former town coun-
cil member Deborah Worley was at Monday's
meeting, and was at earlier meetings of the
Lake Placid coalition of small commercial
and business owners who were responsible
for flooding the meeting with people.
"I think you have the public finally
engaged and they have been knocking around
some good ideas," she said about their own
meetings.
Town attorney Bert J. Harris III listened to
the citizen complaints, but said there was "no
silver bullet" that would end the discussion
that night, which led to his suggestion of the
motion to suspend the cutoff date.
Harris said, while controversial, the sewer
was "the right thing to do for our lakes and
our environment."
Still, the fees are coming after what Matt
Sherwood, who spoke on behalf of the small
business coalition, called the "worst year in
most of these people's economic history."
S"Did you know. 2009 looks like it's going


to be worse than last year?" he asked the
council.
He said the fees would effectively unleash
a blight on the 'downtown area when busi-
nesses moved out to avoid being charged the
fees or went out of business.
"These people have bills on their office
desks right now that they don't know how
they are going to pay," he said.
Frank Hartzell, who spoke at meetings for
the small business coalition and again at the
council meeting, said because the voting pub-
lic voted for the measure, they should be the
ones who pay for it.
In a 1997 special election, 95 voters were
in favor of the sewer, with 90 voting against
it.
Councilman Steve Bastardi spoke in length
about the benefits merchants on the main
drag receive, from free lighting and parking
to maintenance of their store fronts with city
landscaping.
He seemed unsure whether it would.be the
right idea to spend more money on another
study.
"This is .another example of money spent;
it could be well-spent," he said. "We will get
bids and see if we want to look at it again."

County expects


revenues to take


big drop
Continued from page 1A
to decline, we could see a
surplus of commercial
property soon that will also
drive those appraisals fur-
ther down," McIntyre said.
Other contributing fac-
tors included 2,500 addi-
tional citizens who applied
for -homestead exemptions
under Amendment 1, which
removed almost all the out
buildings and additions to
mobile homes from the tax
records.
Tax Collector Charles L.
Bryan informed the com-
mission that the tax loss is
going to be higher because
of issues with collections.
According to Bryan,
even investors who usually
purchase tax certificates
,were cautious or not return-
ing this year, leaving a
large chunk of money on
the table.
"May 31 was a very
scary date. Of the 11,057
certificates for sale, we
only sold 2,600. We had to
contact some large
investors to move an addi-
tional 8,176, but many of
those folks are not commit-
ted to coming back next
year," Bryan said.
Gainer informed council
that other areas of immedi-
ate interest included
declines in solid waste,
state revenue sharing, half-
cent sales tax collections -
which are down $989,446
and fuel taxes.
All told, Gainer is esti-
mating at least a $9.1 mil-
lion decrease in expected
revenues out of the $72
million county budget.
In addition, Gainer
informed the commission a
lack of growth control has
pushed the county's esti-
mated population over the
100,000 mark, and that
means that additional grant
programs available through


in 2009
the small county program
will be lost.
"We have already
received a warning about
one grant for infrastructure
that amounted to about
$300,000 for projects. I
expect that we will see
more grants lost because we
will no longer be consid-
ered a small county,"
Gainer said.
Although the predictions
from OMB and the tax col-
lectors estimated a 15 to 20
percent drop in revenues,
County Administrator
Michael Wright informed
the commission that he
directed his staff to look at
just 10 percent in reduc-
tions.
"We will come in with a
balanced budget, and with
the cut-backs we expect to
just provide core services
that are the county's mis-
sion."
"We will have better
numbers after we see what
the state legislature recom-
mends when they close out
session in about two
weeks," Wright said.
"We have.already initiat-
ed a semi-hiring freeze, and
we have eliminated 20 cell
phones.
"The next few weeks are
dangerous times for local
government, but we are not
taking a slash-and-burn
approach just yet," Wright
added.
"I don't think 10 percent
is drastic enough. I would
expect that our budget be
cut way more than 10 per-
cent to meet the revenues,"
Carlson said.
"We may well have to cut
more than 10 percent. We
have to cut to the point
where we will have to live
within the revenues we
have, but we will see,"
Wright said.

April hasn't been kind to


South Florida Panthers

LIVING



Wednesday, April 15, 2009


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
After a 6-5 win over
Hillsborough Tuesday, March
30, South Florida head coach
Rick Hitt had words of
advice for his team.
"I told the guys, we control
what happens to us the next
ten games," he had said. "It's
going to be who plays the
best these next ten games."
Flash forward to Monday
night's 11-1 loss at Polk, and
what had been a literal log-
jam in the Suncoast


Conference standings has
been spaced out a bit as the
loss marked the Panthers
fifth in their six April games
thus far.
April 4 saw a 10-4 loss to
Pasco-Hernando, but as they
had done all season, SFCC
bounced back with a 5-1 win
two days later against the
Conquistadors.
Since then, however, four
in a row have been dropped
by an aggregate score of 54-
18, including the 12 runs put
up in Saturday's 19-12, 10-


inning loss to Polk at Panther
Field.
So from the 7-8 mark that
had them in the thick of the
race toward the conference
tournament, the team now
sits tied with Polk at 8-13 in
fifth place.
With four games left on the
regular season slate, they are
three games behind both
Pasco and Hillsborough;
making the match-ups
tonight and Friday with con-

Greg Smith slid home with this Panther run Saturday, but it wasn't enough as Polk pre-
vailed, 19-12, in 10 innings, and South Florida finds itself sliding the wrong way in the
Suncoast Conference standings.

Sebring's Dustin Lang and Lake Placid's Perry Mason locked horns in a good old fash-
ioned pitcher's duel Monday night Neither of the starters gave up a run in their time on
the mound in the extra-inning, 1-0, Sebring win.

SEBRING In any close
game, every miscue is magni-
fied, each missed opportunity
a regret.
The miscues were minimal
however, as the cross-county
contest at Firemen's Field
Monday night saw eight and
one-half innings go by with-
out a score in Sebring' s 1-0,
nine-inning win over Lake
Placid that featured outstand-
ing pitching on both sides.
Blue Streak Dustin Lang
started out a little rocky,
walking the first two hitters
he faced.
But he struck out the next
hitter, got a little help when
catcher Josh Chavis threw
behind a Dragon runner for a
pick-off at first, and got the
next one on a grounder to
first.
Green Dragon Perry
Mason had little such drama
for most of his outing, giving
up just three hits ip his seven
innings of work.

So effective was he,
Sebring didn't get a ball out
of the infield until a Gus
Williams base hit in the


fourth.

Longtime Phillies announcer

Harry Kalas dead at 73


By ROB MAADDI
Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA -
Harry Kalas stood near the
mound, wearing a bright
red sportcoat and blowing
kisses to adoring fans,
ready to deliver the cere-
monial first pitch on a day
the Philadelphia Phillies
received their World Series
championship rings.
The Hall of Fame
announcer shook his head,


pretending to call off the
catcher's sign, blew more
kisses, wound up and threw
a one-hop strike to Carlos
Ruiz before last
Wednesday's game against
Atlanta.
It would be the last time
Kalas appeared at Citizens
Bank Park.
Kalas, the longtime radio
and TV broadcaster known
for his signature "Outta
here!" home run calls, died


Monday after collapsing in
the broadcast booth before
the Phillies' 9-8 victory
over the Washington
Nationals. He was 73.
"We lost our voice
today," Phillies president
David Montgomery said.
"He has loved our game
and made just a tremendous
contribution to our sport
and certainly to our organi-

Timing, both good


and bad


Many will merely look at
the shots made, and missed,
in Sunday's granddaddy of
all the Professional Golf
Majors, as to how things
played out.
But if you really think
about it, it was more a mat-
ter of timing on all counts.
As a viewer, lounging on
the couch all day Sunday, it
made for great spectacle.
The two heavyweights,
Tiger and Phil, paired up
and coming up with monu-
mental charges, each, only
to falter right at the end.
But had either of those
two played half as well any
of the other three days,
maybe they're paired up in
the final pairing and such
urgent shot-making wouldn't
have been as necessary.
As it was, the mad dash
each made seemed to take it
out of them and they just
didn't have anything left to
finish it off.
Kenny Perry, who had the
tournament in his grasp by
playing very good golf four
70 holes, picked the wrong
time to actually think he had
it won.
Once that realization hit,
seemingly as he was ready-
ing to tee of on number 17,
his good golf play stopped,


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne
and he snatched defeat from
the jaws of victory.
It was so bad, in fact, that
the timing was perfect for
Angel Cabrera to swat a
drive into the woods and
then carom the next shot off
a tree much like Tiger had
done earlier to end any scant
glimmer of hope he had at
that point.
I mean, if you're heading
into the final two holes of
The Masters and you stick
one into the woods and then
off a tree thankfully hav-
ing the ricochet bounce you
back into the fairway some-
how the best time to do it
is when the guy ahead of
you is hacking up so badly
that you actually end up
staying even with him on

that particular hole.
If Tiger and Phil had
played better earlier, they
might have made it easier on
themselves later.
And if Perry had played
better late, he wouldn't have
wasted the great 70 holes he
had played earlier.
And if ever Angel thought
he could get away with
knocking one off a tree
while in contention at
Augusta, he found just the
right time.
Another good bit of tim-
ing took place later Sunday
night as the Cubs and
Brewers were squared off to
close out the opening week
of the season.
Up 6-2, Prince Fielder -
launched a shot toward the
right field fence with the


,nd Cubs
bases loaded.
It had the distance to clear
the fence, it actually did
clear the fence for the appar-
ent game-tying grand slam.
But Cub right fielder Reed
Johnson made a miraculous
catch, reaching over the
fence to snare the blast for
the out.
The thing is, starting right
fielder Milton Bradley had
gone down with an injury
just an inning or two before,
which is why Johnson was
out there in the first place.
And most baseball folks
will tell you, Milton Bradley
does not make that catch.
Sunday was all about tim-
ing.

Pitcher's duel leads to extra-inning thriller

ball was served up by
Mason and scooped up by
the Lake Placid infielders.
"Perry just did an out-
standing job. I wish I could
Sell him you get a win every
time you pitch a game like
.that," head coach Dan
Coomes said.
"Unfortunately that's just
not how it goes."
The Dragons were getting
their chances on offense,
putting runners on base in
all but two innings, but just
couldn't bring any around.
With runners on second
and third with one out in the
second, a grounder got the
runner at third caught in a
rundown for the second out
before Lang got out of in on
another ground-out.
A line-out double-play
ended their fourth inning
threat and they got the first
two on in the seventh before
Chavis picked off another
runner with a snap throw


and a squeeze bunt was han-
dled by Blue Streak reliever
Gus Williams to nab a run-
ner coming home.
Again in the eighth, a
threat was mounted as
David Samperi led off with
a single to center, was
moved to second on a Logan
Smith sacrifice bunt and to
third on a James Whitehead
ground-out to the right side.
But Williams reached
back for a little something
extra to strike out the next
hitter to retire the side.
"Gus is going to throw
hard," head coach Hoppy
Rewis said. "If you can't hit
a good fastball, he'll make it
tough, and he made a great
play on that squeeze, getting
the ball back to Josh
(Chavis) real quick."
It looked like Williams
might end it at the plate in
the bottom of the eighth,
blasting a shot to deep cen-
ter field with two on and


two out.
But with a stiff breeze
blowing in from left and that
being the deepest part of the
park, Samperi coasted under
it for the out.
By now, Williams had
found his niche and powered
past the Dragon hitters in
the ninth, striking out the
side and setting up Sebring's
winning rally.
With two out, Evan'Lewis
grounded one up the middle
and promptly stole second
to bring up Cody Hoffner.
"Cody had been hitting
the ball hard all night, in
fact, he was our brightest
guy as far as swinging,"
head coach Hoppy Rewis
said. "So it was just, 'let's
get someone on with him
coming up.'"
And it worked out that
way as Hoffner came
through with a sinking liner
to center that brought Lewis
in with the winner.

Zumba eliminates the
"work" from "working out"

unique intermittent training

While Zumba embraces

Zumba is how Zumba mag-
ically motivates the body to
efficiently burn calories,
effectively tone all muscle
groups, incorporate full
range of motion, and-
improve the cardiovascular
system. Fun and music are
the two special motivation-
al ingredients. Utilizing the
natural beat, tempo, and
music transitions, the
Zumba dances seamlessly
flow from one toning,

move into the next.
Participants are constant-
ly engaged and entertained
with the variety of rhythms
including salsa, merengue,
samba, belly dancing,
cumbia, flamenco, reggae-
ton, and more. ZuAmba
breaks away from the typi-
cal 32-count aerobic format

lenged or suppressed by
fatigue, physical/emotional
trauma,. serious illness, or
certain medications.
The first symptom most
patients notice is a tingling
or pain similar to having a
sunburn on one side of the
face or body. Painful skin
blisters begin to appear
several days later, also on
one side of the face or
body. This skin rash is typi-
cally found on the chest,
abdomen, back or face,
although it can also affect
the neck, limbs and lower
back as well. The blisters,
or eruptions, are .very
painful, itchy and tender. If
the face becomes involved,
eye pain, red eye,
headache, fever, or fatigue
may precede, the rash.
After one or two weeks
the blisters begin to heal
and form scabs; however,
the pain often continues.
When the rash affects the
face, it usually affects one
side of the forehead and
scalp, does not cross the
midline of the face, and
involves only the upper
eyelid. Upon exam, the eye
doctor will evaluate both
the surface of the eye as
well as the optic nerve and
retina looking for any signs
of viral involvement in
those tissues. The doctor
will also check the pressure
in the eye at that time.


After the infec-
tion has run its
course, some
patients will
develop a deep
pain known as
post-herpetic neu-
ralgia that can
continue for
months and some-
times years. This
is more common
in the elderly.
The incidence


of shingles increases with
age. Over 50 percent of
cases develop in patients
older than 60. IShingles
usually only, occurs once,
although it may recur in
some cases.
The treatment for shin-
gles consists of taking an
oral antiviral agent such as
acyclovir, usually several
times a day for a week to
10 days. If the condition is
severe, the patient may
need to be hospitalized on
this medication for five to
10 days. An antibiotic oint-
ment is prescribed to keep
the skin eruptions from
becoming infected, and
warm compresses are usu-
ally applied to the skin
about three times a day to
keep the area clean. If the
eye is involved, we usually
recommend artificial tears
-three or four times a day to
keep it as comfortable as
Possible. Topical steroid
eye drops are occasionally
helpful as well.,
Shingles is contagious
for children and adults who
have not had chicken pox,
and can be spread by
inhalation.

tified optometric physician

FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS


Sebring
Recreation Club
By Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING The desk at
the club closed April 6 for the
summer, but just because the
desk is closed does not mean
that the club has slowed
down. This will be a great
time to come and visit.
Zumba picks up momentum.
This group is by far our
youngest members, with
more vim and vigor. You do
not have to be young to join
them at the party, but young
at heart is a must. I think that
the line dancers might find
this to be a challenge as well
as Zumba members find line
dancing.
Tom Bruha is trying to get
more interest in ping-pong.
They all love a challenge at
the game. Lon Mollins can be
found at shuffleboard and is
also no stranger at ping-pong.
Bill Gorsuch is very quiet as
he beats you at shuffleboard
and I understand he is the
same way at table tennis. Ed
Straub will be found playing
bridge, ping-pong and also
shuffleboard.
Joan Mondry is already
hard at work on next year's
directory and membership
list. Ask Joan or Jim if they
plan on going north for
Christmas 2009 so that they
will be able to shovel snow.
Wisconsin seems a bit far to
travel for snow shoveling.
Shuffleboard is a game that
is played by people who can
shoot like there is no tomor-
row. Some people shoot 10's
and do not let up with this
shot. But it is not always the
best shot that is the best play-
er. Some of the very basics:
Do not walk on the courts
even if you see some doing it.
The only time that one should
be on the court is checking a
disc, if good or bad. Stay
seated while the other end
shoots. Never give instruc-
tions on the, game to your
partner. When your opponent


is shooting, your cue should
be held high, not on the court
and not moving disc. People
do not make faces about
shots being taken. Be a good
partner and your game will
be more pleasing than if you
are not. Learn about drift as
soon as you can and always
keep it in your game.
Shufflers now will be play-
ing Monday evening,
Wednesday evening and
Saturday evening. This is a
good chance for those who
are timid and those work
work to try shuffleboard.
The Central District
Summer Schedule for April
will be Winter Haven on
April 16. Starting time is 9
a.m. Bring your lunch for we
have six 16-frame games.
The scheduled continues in
Winter Haven again on April
23 and Avon Park on April
30. If you want fun, carpool
to these tournaments for a
real good time.
Floyann Frey was at ice
cream shuffle today and said
her sciatica was doing better.
I asked about Charlie and
asked if he had flown much
this winter. The answer was
only about nine times so far
this year. So if the wind dies
down, keep your eyes to the
sky for Charlie may be there.
Lisa LaCotti's sister made
it back to Germany on
Tuesday in just 10 hours fly-
ing time across the ocean.
Her trip had four more hours
after she was in Germany.
Safe and sound she is ready
to come back this next year.

The best exhibit in show entered by Awesome Orchids and Elliott Orchids.

Seven nurseries put on displays

in local "World of Orchids' show


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Orchid
Society of Highlands County
hosted a successful and well-
attended third annual show
"World of Orchids."
The interest in orchids
keeps growing and that was
proven by the number of peo-
ple who attended the show.
Almost everyone .purchased
at least one orchid plant and
many had more than they
could carry.
There were seven orchid
nurseries that had a large
variety of orchids available at
reasonable prices. They were
Awesome Orchids of Lake
Placid, Elliott Orchids of
Okeechobee, Mac's Orchids
of Fort Lauderdale, Quest
Orchids of Miami, Odom's
Orchids of Fort Pierce,
Featherstone Orchids. of
Crystal River and Florida
Suncoast Orchids of Myakka
City. Also in attendance were
Hicks Orchid Supplies,
American Travel Group and


Nature on the Rocks.
This was an American
Orchid Society sanctioned
show and three plants were
given an Award of Merit by
the 16 certified judges who
participated.
Two of the plants' were
entered by Mac's Orchids
and the other by members of
the local society, Jim and Jo-
Ann Dean.
The society also gave 25
trophies to individual plants
that were the best in different
categories.
Club president Ed Fabik
said, "We would like to thank
the businesses and individu-
als that sponsored these tro-
phies for our show.
There were more than
1,000 orchids on display in
the six exhibits by growers,
two by societies and one by a
hobbyist."
The Orchid Society of
Highlands County received
the first place ribbon for the
best society exhibit and the


American Orchid Society tro-
phy for the best exhibit in the
show was won by Awesome
Orchids and Elliott Orchids'
together.
Orchids are the largest
group of flowering plants in
nature. There are more than
25,000 identified species and
more 'than 120,000 hybrids
registered with the Royal
Horticultural Society.
With so many choices
there's an orchid for every
person's taste.
People are increasingly
learning that orchids are not
the delicate plants that they
were once perceived to be but
-are hardy, easy to maintain
plants that have the ability to
bloom all year long. If inter-
ested in orchids plan to
attend one of the society's
meetings. For society infor-
mation call Fabik at 414-
