Family: Man found dead in LP was 'loving, caring person'


SInvestigators treating death as murder


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID The
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office say the body found on
Monday is that of 48-year-
old Jose A. Cabrera Cirino of
Sebring.
"This is a tragedy for us,"


said Luz Gonzalez, Cabrera's
niece. "He was a very loving.
caring, person. At the
Walmart here, in Sebring
(where he worked) he was
very loved by all the employ-
ees and the customers.":
The HCSO Criminal
Investigations Unit is keep-


ing a tight lid
.on the details
of Cabrera's
death, but are
investigating it
as a homicide. Cabrera
SCabrera's body was found
SIMonday at 3:48 p.m. in the
,undeveloped eastern portion


of the Sun 'N Lake subdivi-
sion of Lake Placid.
"It was found by a citizen
driving in that area," said
CIU Lt. Tim Lethbridge.
When asked why the death
was being investigated as a
homicide, Lethbridge said it
was because the body was
found abandoned' in an unde-
veloped area, but would'not.

Lack of interpreters a problem for hearing impaired


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.ituffley@,'nes'5sin.com r :
SEBRING Pennie Fuller, 45, was born with audi-
tory ner-e deafness. That means she cannot hear, and
will probably neser be able to do so.
That fact doesn't bother her. She has accepted her
lack of hearing as being a part of God's larger purpose.
She is content to wait until she's in Hea\en. when she
knows she will hear perfectly.
Her eldest brother, on the other hand. who %as born
with the same condition, would be first in line for an\
breakthrough that allowed him to hear.
The siblings reflect the diversity of opinions among
. the deaf.
For people .who have never heard, suddenly being
able to do so can be overwhelming, even distracting to
the point of a mental breakdown. Hearing people learn
early on to block out what they don't want to hear.
Some deaf people consider their deafness a blessing,
because it allows for intense concentration. It also
makes them far more observant than the average hear-
ing person.
Fuller, for example, drives a car legally as long as
she has outside rear view mirrors in addition to the
interior. Totally focused on the road and fellow drivers,
she is often aware of emergency vehicles sooner than
hearing individuals.
She worked 18 years with the U.S. Postal Service,,

ent types. Again, the ability to close everything out
made her a highly efficient worker.
Unfortunately, her world turned upside down when
she slipped and fell one day (not at work) and badly
smashed her knee and shoulder. It meant she could no
longer work on her feet, and the shoulder injury made it
impossible to operate the machines. She had to take
early retirement and lives on disability.

T.K. Hill trial


delayed again


Trial should be

held in June
By ED BALDRIDGE
edbaldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING The attorney
for Travis Kelton Hill III told
10th Circuit Court Judge
Peter Estrada on Wednesday
that he was awaiting more
information concerning the
case before he could proceed
to trial.
"We are waiting for the
custodian of records at
Florida Hospital to get back
to us," said Bruce S. Rogow,
who is shown as the current
defense attorney in court
records, during the pre-trial
hearing.
An earlier motion to dis-
miss the blood alcohol evi-
dence against Hill was denied
by Estrada.
Hill was charged with driv-
ing under the influence of
alcohol or drugs and negli-
gent vehicular manslaughter
after the Dec. 30, 2006 death
of Kristin Marie Dessingue,
16, of Coconut Creek.
Dessingue was a passenger
in Hill's pickup truck when
he lost control while travel-
ing-north on County Road
621.


Hill, 20, was the starting
quarterback in his junior and
senior seasons at Avon Park
High School. Before the acci-
dent, he was being looked at
by the University of
Alabama, Louisiana State
University and Florida
Atlantic University.
According to their reports,
Florida Highway Patrol
troopers found the white
truck on its right side, and
determined Hill missed a
left-hand curve and lost con-
trol.
The Ford truck flipped
several times, and both Hill
and Dessingue were ejected.
Hill sustained neck and
back injuries. A third passen-
ger, Jake R. Dressel, had
minor injuries.
The report also stated that
troopers counted 47 beer cans
around the accident scene.
At the Lake Placid hospital
where Hill was taken, a blood
alcohol sample reportedly
registered .179. The legal
limit for an adult is .08.
Hill remains free on a
$102,000 bond.
Estrada set the next hear-
ing for May 20, and
expressed that he would like
to get a trial going by June.


The issue

Man attacked with machete during robbery attempt in LP

Last We Knew

A man was transported to Florida Hospital Lake Placid after he was attacked by a group of
people, one wielding a machete, who demanded money. The crime occurred at about 6
a.m. Saturday off of Highlands Boulevard in Sun 'N Lake South. The victim was struck
over the head numerous times as he fought against his attackers. Lt. Jess Purvis of the
Highlands County Sheriff's Office said the victim knew his attackers by first name only but
believed an arrest would be made shortly.

The Latest
The case has been handed over to Criminal Investigations. "The investigation is continuing
and basically we have an eye towards identifying and locating the suspects," said HCSO Lt.
Tim Lethbridge. When asked if there were additional weapons used by the suspects other
than the machete, Lethbridge declined to comment. He did, however, confirm that there
were four suspects involved in the robbery, two men and two women, and that the victim
has been treated and released. Anyone with information on the robbery can contact the
HCSO at 402-7250 or to remain anonymous and eligible for a cash reward contact

Man arrested for making false

911 report of two murders-


Claimed brother had been
killed and that he had
killed the man responsible
By SCOTT DRESSEL
scott.dressel@newssun.com
AVON PARK A man who made a
series of calls to 911 telling law enforce-
ment that he had killed the man who had
killed,his brother is facing a felony charge
after revealing that he made the whole thing
up because he was drunk and upset
after an argument with his girl-
friend.
According to a Highlands County
Sheriff's Office report, just after
midnight Wednesday, officials from
Polk County contacted local law
enforcement in regards to a
Hispanic man who had made several Hern
calls to 911. The caller said he need-
ed law enforcement assistance because he
was chasing two men in a black Chevrolet
Silverado truck south on U.S. 27 in Avon
Park near the Walmart because they were
the men who killed his brother.
The 911 call was patched through to
HCSO Deputy Alfredo Campos, who speaks
Spanish. Campos reported that the caller -
who gave the name Raul Gonzalez, but was
later identified as 25-year-old Eujenio
Lopez Hernandez of Avon Park claimed


a


that his brother had been killed on Tuesday.
Hernandez also claimed that he had located
the person who had killed his brother, killed
him at a bar in Frostproof called El
Palenque and then buried him in his back
yard, but. wouldn't say where his residence
was.
Campos reported that Hernandez also
claimed he was chasing the brother of the
man who had killed his brother, but had lost
the vehicle somewhere near Winn-Dixie in
Avdn Park.
Hernandez then told Campos that he did-
n't need help from law enforcement
and was returning to his home~ in
Frostproof, but refused to say where
that home was and threatened that if
law enforcement came looking for
him he would kill them also, the
report said. "He stated he has an AK-
ndez 47 and was not scared of killing any-
one," Campos wrote in his report.
Meanwhile, several law enforcement
units were converging on the area where
Hernandez claimed he was chasing the sus-
pects. One of them pulled over a black
Silverado, but the occupants did not match
the description Hernandez had given.
Then, an Avon Park Police Department
unit was flagged down by a Hispanic male
who turned out to be Hernandez on
the corner of Cornell Street and North

EDITORIAL & OPINION


TODAY'S EDITORIAL


The time to think ahead is now


I- arc MNk Hfatigu


Preparing for the future is
not always easy, espe-
cially if it involves sac-
rifices in the present

Anyone who has saved for retirement or
put money aside every month for their chil-
dren's college education at the cost of eat-
ing tuna fish or peanut butter knows this
truth first hand.
The reward, of course, comes years later
when those who saved tee off in the morning
When everyone else is going to work or intro-
duce their 'daughter, the doctor, to the new
neighbors next door.
It might seem a reach to go from individual.
discipline and farsightedness to drilling for
oil offshore, but the connection is there.
SThe blunt truth is that oil is a non-renew-
able resource. Just as surely as (with good
fortune) a person will turn 65, and a child
grow up, the day is coming when the oil will
be gone.
We need to start preparing for that day right
now, because long before it arrives we will
feel its effects.
It is already more difficult to find and
retrieve oil, meaning its price will only con-
tinue to rise. This will only be exacerbated as
more and more people around the world gain


electricity and start to drive cars.
This is the main reason we oppose drilling
for oil off the Florida coast. We feel it is a
shortsighted policy, which has no good end.
Put aside the risk drilling presents to the
environment.
Put aside the pollution using fossil fuel cre-
ates, or that chemistry can put oil to better
uses.
Put aside that it will take years to see any
benefits from drilling.
The main point is this:
The longer we use oil for energy, the longer
we put off finding energy alternatives.
The longer we put off finding energy alter-
,natives, the more ahead of us other countries
get.
The farther we fall behind, the more it will
hurt.
We understand there is need now.
We understand the temptation to go for the
easy answer.
But thoughtless, short term thinking is
what got us onto this mess, doing more of the
same will not solve our problems.
The time has come to,work for the future,
not cling to the past.
If we want to some day look back with
pride and gratitude, like the comfortable
retiree and the educated children, than we
have to be strong enough today to simply say
no.

Glory ii excesses
Editor:
SThe natives of the Pacific Northwest,
known as Kwakiutl and other peoples
developed a unique social custom to
gain status and prestige within their
culture. It involved the elaborate gift-
ing and destruction of items of value
and utility in great numbers, in order to
display both great wealth, generosity
and at the same time a quality of indif-
Sference to material things.
A practice called "Potlatching"
Developed Where the tribes would gath-
er at certain times of the year and.
engage in an orgy of gifting and
destruction of such prized possessions
as canoes, blankets, weapons and other
artifacts, thus displaying their wealth
and generosity, which gained them
much prestige. It also had religious sig-
nificance..
The tribes would in; preparation for
a "potlatch" spend many months manu-
facturing canoes, blankets and other
commodities that were to be burned as
a display of the excess of riches of a
tribe, thus gaining the respect and
appreciation of the other tribes.
This style of excess and consumption
was far from foreign in what is now
described as "the golden age" where
wealth, elaborate displays of parties,
and exaggerated styles became the hall-
mark of the American rich and success-
ful, ultimately catalogued and analyzed
by Thorsen Veblen, in his work, "The
STheory of the Leisure Classes," which
gave birth to the phrase "conspicuous
consumption."

The State Attorney's Office will
either try to drum up some new ridicu-
lous charges or finally admit that they
were wrong in filing felony charges in
the first place. Jean Claude was not
under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
His truck had been inspected by the
DOT three days prior to the accident
and found to be legally drivable. The
State's entire case was based on an
assumption that "he must've fallen
asleep." To try, convict and sentence a
person on an assumption is not what
justice is about.
On Friday I will be there with Jean
Claude and my sister Rebecca at 1:30
p.m. Hopefully I will finally be able to
put the banner on my.van that reads
"Free At Last, Thank God Jean Claude
is Free At Last."

Placid not being heard
Editor:
Congratulations, you are 100 percent
right. Voter apathy leads to problems.
People who do not vote do not have
a right to complain about the results, as
you stated in your editorial of April 17
"Not voting part of reason for big
stink raised over Lake Placid sewer
hookups." The fact is the bill for the
sewer must be paid but it must be done
so in a fair and amicable way.
People who do not vote do not have

a right to complain about the results, as
you stated in your editorial. However,
if you had done your homework and
research you would have found out that
it is only the town residents who have
,that privilege: Those of us who own
commercial property, as I do, have no
vote. We have not been given the right
to vote on issues that affect our busi-
nesses every day. We pay our property
taxes and yet we cannot and did not
vote on the issues regarding the sewer
hook up. Some of the business owners
do live in the town limits and I would
hope they took the opportunity to exer-
cise their right to vote.
Yes, the business owners are crying
foul, because we are aware of what is
happening. We can express ourselves
freely at the town council meetings, but
our input apparently ends there. Can we
sway the town residents to vote for
what is beneficial to the business own-
ers, who pay the lion's share of the
property taxes? I was not a.business
and property owner in 1997, so I can't
say with confidence what efforts and
information circulated in the communi-
ty from the town council about this
proposed sewer referendum. The busi-
ness owners were heard from loud and
clear at a recent town council meeting
and the deadline for sewer hookup has
been postponed and a special meeting
regarding the sewer issue is scheduled
for May 4.
You have labeled us with accusations
of indifference and whining and I per-
sonally resent your tone. Yes, the right
to vote is another issue that can and
should be addressed and as a property
owner of commercial property, I intend
to make my position known to the town
council.
We can be bothered and we do care,
about each other in the business and
residential community, mich more than
you give us credit for. To assume that
we didn't bother to vote or didn't get
informed on the issues and that we got
what we deserved shows gross negli-
gence on your part in checking the
details regarding this issue.

Employment law
to be discussed
SEBRING In today's
increasingly complex regula-
tory environment, employers
may find themselves facing
employee allegations of dis-
crimination or unfair labor
practices that all too often
result in costly settlements.
Employment law affects
small and large businesses
alike and the consequences
of a violation in the area of
human resources can be dis-
astrous.
Clark, Campbell, &
Mawhinney, P.A. and SHR
Human Resources, LLC, an


affiliate of The NCT Group
CPA's, LLP, have designed a
highly informative seminar
addressing topical employ-
ment law issues.
Entitled "What Now Your
Honor?," the seminar will
address common human
resource and employment
law issues by analyzing
actual court cases, inviting
the audience to join in a dis-
cussion of how.the employer
involved could have handled
the situation better.
Conducting the seminars
are Kemp Brinson and Don
Selvage. Kemp practices law
with Clark, Campbell &
Mawhinney, P.A., handling
employment law and busi-
ness litigation cases. Don
heads SHR Human
Resources, LLC, a company-
that provides human
resources consulting servic-
es. Both of them are well
versed in employment relat-
ed issues and will be avail-
able to answer your ques-
tions.
The seminar will take
place at 11:30 a.m..today at

$10 per person and includes
a full lunch buffet. RSVP by

State looking for 'champion trees'


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffey@newssun.com
SEBRING Today is
Arbor Day, the perfect time
to stop a moment in the shade
of an oak, pine, or cabbage
palm and pause to give
thanks.
Trees clean the air, hold
the soil and provide shelter
for wild life; they rustle in
the breeze and are beautiful
to look at.
. Trees provide lumber,
maple syrup, turpentine,
cardboard and newsprint,
among many products.
A living thing, both useful
and aesthetic some soar-
ing majestically, some short
and filled with fruit, some
twisted into amazing shapes
from withstanding the wind
- trees are one of nature's
greatest gifts to the world.
No wonder there is a day
dedicated to them.
Arbor Day was created by
a journalist named J. Sterling
Morton. He and his wife had
moved from Detroit to the
Nebraska Territory in 1854.


The difference between
wooded Michigan to the
open, sweeping central plains
overwhelmedl them both,
causing Morton, as an editor
of a newspaper, to start
spreading the word about
spreading trees.
After he became the secre-
tary for the territory he was
in a position to do more than
advocate. In January of 1872
an Arbor Day was proposed,
it became official April 10 of
that year.
It is estimated that over 1
million trees were planted in
the territory that day.
In 1885 Arbor Day became
a legal holiday in Nebraska,
celebrated on April 22,
because that was Morton's
birthday.
The idea had begun to
spread across the country in
the 1870s, and from there
around the world.
Today the most common
date is set for the last Friday
in April, however, there are
some states where it takes

Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is asking the public
to help in identifying
' Champion Trees" in honor
of Arbor Day.
* For decades the Florida
Division of Forestry has been
maintaining a record of
champion trees, meaning the
largest of their species in the
state. It currently has a list of
more 300.
"What better way of think-
ing about the benefit of trees
than for commercial land
owners, homeowners, and
those hiking in the woods to
see if they can identify large
species of trees that have
been missed," Bronson said.
"Champions are all around us
just waiting to be discovered,
even in people's yards and
neighborhoods."

County lacking when it comes to deaf services


Continued from page 1A
She pointed out that before the acci-
dent she did not consider herself dis-
abled.
But that isn't what this story is
about.
Where Fuller has difficulties is living
in, a hearing world among people who
don't understand and sometimes irra-
tionally fear her.
"Highlands County is in the Dark
Ages" when it comes to the deaf, she
said via sign language interpreted by
her mother, Georgia Jones.
The most important point she wanted
to make is that deaf people are no dif-
ferent from anyone else. They simply
don't hear.
Maybe, she thinks, it's because of
the undifferentiated sounds a hon-hear-
ing person makes, or the mystery of
sign language, but she has met too
many people who have no idea how to
respond to her and think of her as sim-
ple-minded or diseased or just drunk,
rude and stuck-up in any case, a per-
son to be avoided.
Fuller outlined many of the hurdles
-she faces in life, most as a result of
community ignorance and lack of sup-
port.
What causes frustration is that most
of those problems would fade away if
only she had regular access to sign lan-
guage interpreters.
For example, new technology, by
way of Web-cams and sign language
interpreters, means she can now keep in
touch with friends and conduct busi-
ness over the phone. Fax machines also
have made her life easier.
The new technologies allow her
brother to have his own business, a
cabinet shop in North Carolina called
Definitely Cabinets.
Those technologies have an added
importance because reading lips is
much more difficult than most people
think. Many movies greatly exaggerate
the ability, Fuller said.
This means that interpreters are as
important to the deaf as they are to the
hearing people with whom they need to
communicate.
And there is the crux of her problem
a lack of interpreters in the county,
despite the fact that Soyth Florida
Community College offers sign lan-
guage as a foreign language.
Born and raised in Palm Beach
County, Fuller and her. family had
ready access to communication.
She and her brother both graduated
from the St. Augustine School for the
Deaf. She has strong skills she's
even taught her dog to read sign lan-
guage but they are useless if there is

no one who can understand what she
signs.
Jones, who also has two hearing chil-
dren, knew nothing about deafness
when Lee, her eldest, was born.
"I noticed he didn't react to his name
as an infant," she said, adding that he
was diagnosed at eight months.
Her first reaction was to try to find a
"cure," taking him to hospital after hos-
pital..
When it became clear his condition
was permanent, she adjusted to the sit-
uation, learning sign language herself,
as did her husband, the best he was
able.
An unintended consequence of mov-
ing to Highlands County, however, is
that by default Jones has become her
daughter's primary interpreter, a situa-
tion that worries both of them as Jones
gets older and also doesn't allow Fuller
any privacy.
It also happens to be against the law
- a relative may not sign for another
in any official capacity.
One of the worst moments in Fuller's
life came when she smashed her knee.
Her son, Andrew, is a junior at
Sebring High School. He hears, but
knows how to sign and was 12 at the
time.
Taken to an emergency room in
Wellington, the hospital did not provide
an interpreter, although according to
Fuller there was a sign on the wall
announcing their availability. The bur-
den fell on Andrew to do the communi-
cating with the emergency room per-
sonnel. That meant he had to view the
work being done to his mother, witness
her pain and suffering, and still get

There will be chance draw-
ings, including opportunities
for a three-day cruise and a
Wii.
As for food : There will be
all kinds of chili, funnel cakes,
snow cones, nachos and sloppy
joes.
Because this event has a seri-
ous purpose to help in the
fight against cancer, as well as
honoring those who survived
and remembering those who
were taken there will be
emotional moments as well.
A luminaria remembrance


ceremony takes place at 8:30
p.m.; at midnight, a relay rally;
and at 6 a.m., a sunrise service.
The'theme is the Wild, Wild
West, so there will be cowboys
and Indians, teepees and a
miniature western town.
Mygatt said the organizers
hoped to raise a total of
$140,000 over the course of the
year.
A portion of that stays in the
community to help those local-
ly who are battling with cancer.
Funds will be raised through
the purchase of tickets, which
can used to play the games or
buy food.


everything right.
Fuller wants people to know h'ow
important it is for the deaf to have
access to interpreters, especially in
emergency situations.
But it isn't as easy as it sounds.
Beyond the issue of having the skill, is
who will pay for the service.
Fuller said that in 1984, under the
auspices of the Federal
Communications Commission, laws
were put in place mandating inter-
preters for the deaf and those who
don't speak English.
Currently it falls on physicians to
provide for the interpreters, but insur-
ance typically doesn't cover the cost -
unless it is a Workman's Compensation
claim. That means the interpreter's fee
comes out of the doctor's pocket, and
in some cases, like with Medicare, the
cost of the interpreter is higher than the
fee the doctor will receive to treat the
patient; so the doctor has to work for
free or even lose money with the
patient.
On the other hand, many of the deaf
don't have the ability to pay for an
interpreter themselves, no matter how
urgent the need.
As a result there:is confusion, and
sometimes ill will that works both
ways.
Writing notes back and forth can be
helpful, but when it comes to the finer.
points of how to take a medication, or
explaining a pain, notes often aren't
enough.
Fuller is hoping that by bringing the
situation to people's attention, a discus-
sion will develop that can resolve this
difficult conundrum.

wounds.
The next day, a witness told investigators that a fight
started around 9 p.m. and that several males were kick-
ing Orange's boyfriend, 20-year-old Jason Kilgore of
Sebring. The victim said that Orange got on top of
Kilgore to prevent him from being kicked anymore, but
the witness saw a "white female with dirty blonde hair
pulled into a ponytail (later identified as Cierra
Brantley) pull Orange off Kilgore ... pull a knife and
stab Orange in her left side just below the ribs" the
report said.
The report said Orange was also stabbed in the left
thigh just below her left hip.
After Brantley was developed as a suspect, an inves-
tigator went to where she was residing at 2100 Rainbow
Ave. to question her, but she reportedly asked for her
lawyer and the interview was ended.
She is being held without bond.

Sebring council starts

early. on plans for

centennial celebration


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING The
Sebring City Council took
the first step in promoting a
centennial celebration at its
regular meeting on Tuesday
night.
Although Sebring does
not turn 100 until 2012,
Allen Altvater III, whose
father was the city historian
during the 75-year celebra-
tion, encouraged the coun-
cil to set a date and to "get
the ball rolling."
"We are working on a
book like the 50- and 75-
,year celebrations, and I
would like to encourage
some group here in Sebring
to be the lead on the cele-
bration," Altvater said.
The council voted unani-
mously to make the week of
Oct. 13-21, 2012 to be set
aside as the official dates
for celebrations in order to
let everyone know way
ahead of time to encourage
participation.
Mayor George Hensley
encouraged the council to
contribute some level of
funding in the next budget


'Since this is a
city celebration, I
agree that we
should take some
active role.'

MARGIE RHODES
council member

towards the celebration,
and Councilwoman Margie
Rhodes agreed.
"Since this is a city cele-
bration, I agree that we
should take some active
role," Rhodes said.
The council directed staff
to establish a committee
and put together some ideas
to get preparations started.
Council president John
Griffin recommended that
Altvater become the chair
of the proposed committee,
but Altvater took a wait-
and-see approach to the
idea.
"Well, I think that we
have the leadership to do
the book, but we might
have to see where the Lord
leads me as far as anything
else goes," Altvater said.

Gonzalez said. "Much of

Gonzalez was very close
to her uncle, who she grew
up with from a very young
age and still saw frequently,
even before he moved.
"He would come and
visit us, we would spend
vacation together, family
reunions," she said. "He

Arrest report says security firm did not fulfill contract obligations


Continued from page 1A
from six former employees me:
alleging the lack of security the
coverage. t
According to the report by ny
St. Laurent, employees would trib
cover more than one location Gri
during a shift, leaving at least cur
one site without security, or
ask for days off to find out Lau
later their shifts were not cov- so
ered by other employees. tha
Just three days after the tain
Highlands County Sheriff's bec
Office received the complaint, ser
Garcia requested to be
-released from his contract
with the airport due to the
"loss of confidence to provide
services to the (Sebring
Airport Authority) Boards
expectations."
Garcia's request came the
same, day he was made' aware
-of:the Airport Authority's
-concern via a letter from Mike
Willingham, executive direc-
,tor of the SRA.
In an interview Wednesday,
Willingham said there had
been no reported security
problems and was not aware
of: the:coverage issues until
recently. Garcia's contract
.started Feb. 21,2008.
S'We did not have any
inkling of this until just before
he resigned," Willingham
said. "We had.no knowledge.
that any of this was going on.",
R.G.A. Services was under
-contract to provide security to
the Sebring Regional Airport
12 hours every day, Sun 'N
Lake was under contract for
an. all-day, every-day security
patrol and Placid Lakes' con-
tract was.for 12 hours of cov-
'erage each day from Thursday
through Sunday.
3 The 'criminal charges
involved those three contracts
,specifically and did not men-
,tion others by name except to
state two former employees
who came' forward also
- worked for Garcia's company
.inf' the' Harder Hall subdivi-
Sion.
Schedules provided by four
:of the six former employees
who spoke to law enforce-
,ment showed grand theft
:amounts of $2,511.36 from
Sun 'N Lake, $7,645 from the
Sebring Regional Airport, and
'$1.812.19 from Placid Lakes
due to missed security details.
...These schedules show
multiple occasions in which
security : personnel, were
scheduled to work multiple
areas during the same eight
hour time period" St. Laurent
'said. "The witnesses all state
'this was accurate and that
:they were expected to leave
:one area to secure another."
..St.Laurent said he believes
Sthe numbers are greater.
"bLue to there being whole
months in which there are no
log activity, for (either) the
Sebring Airport or Placid
SLakes it is believed that the
actual theft amounts are high-
.er," he said. "Though the
paper trail does not exist."


False 911 calls
landman in jail
Continued from page 2A
Carolina Avenue in Avon
Park. The man told officers
he' had been calling law
enforcement on 911 and
: needed help. Campos arrived
.on the scene, and Hernandez
i;asked if he had been the offi-
:icer he had been speaking to
.; on the phone. Campos said he .
was, and Hernandez report-
.-edly stated that everything he
:'had been saying on the phone
was not true.
SHernandez allegedly said
.that he had called 911
"because ,he wanted law
:enforcement to respond to his
.residence because he and his
girlfriend were involved in
an argument at El Palenqtie.
.He made the first 911 call in
:Polk County, then got a
'friend to give him a ride to
Avon Park.


"He advised he was intoxi-
.cated and was really upset."::
Campos wrote about why
' Hernandez made the false-
. reports.
Hernandez was charged
,with 'using 911 to make a
.false report, which is a mis-
.:demeanor, and making a false
:report about a capital felony,
'which is a third-degree
"felony. He was being held
"Thursday on $17,000 bond.


Another common thread
ntiohed by employees was
2008 sheriff election.
3arcia, through his compa-
or himself personally, con-
ruted at least $450 to Ron
mming, who ran against
rent Sheriff Susan Benton.
A current employee told St.
rent that "Garcia became
involved in the elections
t he did not properly main-
n the security business ...
:ause of this there were
ious lapses of security," the


arrest report stated.
St. Laurent said in the
report that it should be noted
that "almost all of the wit-
nesses" made similar claims
about the election.
All six former employees
also said they were primarily
paid in cash, under the table,
and would only see two or
three actual payroll checks a
year, the report stated.
"Garcia said he did this to
protect himself as he had
problems with the I.R.S. in


the past," St. Laurent said in
the report.
A search of the Highlands
County Clerk of Courts
records shows a federal tax
lien on Garcia's property at
457 S. Commerce Ave. in
Sebring in the amount of
$63,903.32.
The page cites a 6672 tax,
which is a penalty for individ-
uals who do not remit payroll
taxes. The 6672 penalties date
back to the tax period ending
in March of 2002 with an


assessed date of July 2006.
The lien is "substantially
more than what is recorded,"
said director of official
records for the Highlands
County Clerk of Courts
Antonia Rivera, "because it is
two years old ... they add
penalties and interest."
The lien was officially
recorded on Sept. 7, 2007.
No local charges have aris-
en from the workers allega-
tions that they were paid
under the table, but Garcia


was charged with three felony
counts of theft more than
$300 and one count, of fraud
less than $20,000 for .failing
to provide promised security
services. All are third degree
felonies.
He was released 90 minutes
after he was booked on the
charges late Tuesday morn-
ing, on $4,000 bond. Garcia is
also 'a bondsman, but that
business was not cited in the
probable cause narrative, only
under the occupation field.

AP ends season on mercy-rule shut-out


News-Sun file photo b\ DAN HOEHNE
Katelynn Stoll will be one of the young core that will be
looked to next season for the Lady Red Devils.


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
The Lady Devils softball
team ended its' season with a
fifth-inning 10-0 loss to
DeSoto during the first round
of District 10-4A play-offs.
Avon Park Head Coach
Wade "The Hammer"
Jackson said the 3-17 season
was not without highlights,
but that it was mostly a re-
building year for the Devils.
"We started with very little
experience,just three seniors,
and one of those got injured,
so we had a lot of young girls
filling spots," Jackson said.


Jackson also told the
News-Sun that he was not
returning next year due to a
family situation.
"I left coaching football to
spend more time with my
teenagers, and attend their
events. I love AP, and we
were without a softball coach
kind of at the last minute, so
I stepped up to help out," he.
said. "My wife is working on
her doctorate, and I love
coaching, but I need to focus
on the family right now."
Although he was taking
some time off, Jackson said


'They can be big
contributors.'

WADE JACKSON
that he will return to coach-
ing in the future.
"Hey, I'm young enough
that when the kids are grown
some more, I would like to get
back into coaching. That's the
plan," Jackson said.
According to Jackson,
even though Avon Park
stand-put athlete Brearnna
Tate was out with a knee


injury, there were a couple of
younger girls '% ho stepped in
and played % ell.
"We will miss seniors
Jamice Perry, Courtney
Robinson, and Danielle
Thomlinson, they did well
for us, but I think that whoev-
er steps in next year can real-
ly build a team around soph-
omores Faviaqette Cotte and
Katelyn Stoll. Those two
really did a good job for us
this year, and I think that
with the right leadership,
they can be big contributors
for next year," Jackson said.

Rodney Havery cleared 11-feet, 6-inches in the pole vault to take first place in the District
8-3A meet Tuesday at Firemen's Field. The win moves Havery on the the Region 3-3A meet

McGee, who took third by clearing 11-feet.

ishes in five events at

The meet was supposed to

Dragons corral Cowboys in extras

it took a few extra innings.
Sbut Lake Placid squeaked out
a 6-5 win over LaBelle
Tuesday night to get its' sea-
son mark back to an even 11-
II.
Perry Mason got the start
on the mound for the
Dragons and went six innings
before giving way to Dylan
Weber-Callahan, who picked
up the win in
Lake Placid 'relief.
"Dylan
...went the last
LaBell e three innings
and pitched
5 i shut-out ball,"
head coach
Dan Coomes
said. "Perr' started, went six
and kept us in there against a
S very good ball club."
SOffensively, Brad Stayton
played, the lead-off hitter role
to near perfection, rapping
Sone hit, walking three times
and scoring three runs.
"That's what you want a
lead-off hitter to do,"
Coomes noted.
Logan Smith went 3-for-4
and knocked in two runs.
while Kyle Barber and Zach
Heckman each went 2-for-3

Logan Smith's tag was a tad too late to nab this LaBelle baserunner, but the Dragons got
the last laugh with a 6-5, 9-iining win over the Cowboys Tuesday night.


with an RBI apiece.
With just two games
remaining on the docket of
the regular season, the
Dragons seem to be coming
together at.the right time.
"That's what you want is to
build to this end," Coomes
said. "If we can keep this
kind of intensity, we'll be in
good shape."
The intensity shouldn't


have been difficult to muster
up Thursday night with a.
match-up at Avon Park for
the Red Devil Senior Night.
Lake Placid ends it's regu-
lar season tonight at
. Evangelical Christian before
returning home to host the
District 10-3A Tournament
and facing top-seeded

The improvements made at Lake Placid Camp and Conference Center since 2006 have
not neglected close attention to the historical aspects of the property, originally owned by
Dr. Melvin Dewey.


Historic LP Camp and Conference

Center property finds new life


By HANNA HANEY
Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID On a
sterling lake, nestled in the
heartland of Florida, sits
beautiful Lake Placid Camp
and Conference Center. This
property was purchased in
1926 by Dr. Melvil Dewey,
inventor of the i Dewey
Decimal system and inven-
tor of a spelling method
called simple spelling.
.Dewey proved himself a
visionary and a key contrib-
utor to the local economy of
the time. In its heyday,
Dewey's Lake Placid Club
served as a playground for
the rich and famous. People
such as Babe Ruth, the
Wrigley's, the DuPont's and
the Churchill's were among
the list of the privileged
class that came to escape the
frigid temperatures of the
north and bask in the sun of
.the "$unshine State.";.
The Great Depression was
the cause of the closure of
the resort on May. 1, 1931.
The financial condition was
such that the furniture was
sold to the Lake Placid Club
of New York to pay the out-
standing debt.
After Dewey's death on
Dec. 26, 1931, the resort was
renamed Southwinds under
new ownership and contin-
'ued its operation for several
years with less prominence.
Since then, it has been
owned and operated by a
succession of individuals
and ministries. Over the past
five decades the resort fell
into disrepair and the beauti-
ful mansions were in serious
need of a thorough facelift.
In 1997, the southern
Florida District Church of
the Nazarene acquired the
property and is currently
serving more than 20,000
guests per year, with the
motto of "serving Jesus
Christ by serving others,"
under the supervision of Dr.


David Nixon, district super-
intendent and .Anthony
Haney, executive director.
Since assuming operation
of Lake Placid Camp and
Conference Center in 2006,
Haney has made many
improvements while paying
close attention to the histori-
Scal aspects of the property.
LPCCC is currently able
to host up to 600 guests at
maximum. capacity and is
constantly being expanded
and improved. The two


Mediterranean-style man-
sions, original to the proper-
ty, are still in full operation
and have undergone substan-
tial restoration due mostly to
the hard work of volunteers.
The facility employs two
excellent chefs and provides
delicious full-service dining
along with clean and com-
fortable accommodations
and meeting areas perfect for
corporate events, retreats,
luncheons, and summer
camps.


Open up to a new world.


It's easy to feel as if the world has closed in around you when you're
affected by a loss of hearing. Everyday conversation can seem grainy, less
focused and awkward as natural speech and sounds become
-harder to comprehend. Delta is the innovative new hearing device
that helps you break out of the isolation to inpi'ove your scope of under-
standing, so you can converse more confidently and more
comfortably with others.
High-tech Artficalf Intelligence automatically adjusts
settings to enhance the quality of speech
Discreet triangular shape conveniently hides out-of-sight,
comfortably behind your ear
Choice of 17 attractive colors blend with skin or hair, or express
your own individual style
Wearing Delta is to gain an edge to help you hear with dramatic new
clarity. You can come out of your shell and participate in a whole new
world of people, places and opportunities.

SRecently, an Easter Tea, presented by the Women's Ministry of the First Baptist Church
/ of Sebring, was attended by more than 125 women and girls. Attendees enjoyed the
individually decorated tables by 17 different women of the church. Guest speaker Julie
Wayner brought her'friend Linda Ricker, both simultaneously widowed when Jim
Wayner's plane broke apart over Golf Hammock Golf Course late last year. Julie talked
about making the right choices in life and how those choices affect us and others, even
years afterward. Guest soloist was First Baptist Church of Sebring preschool teacher
Ghene't McCormick. The waiters for the tea were the church deacons. Delores
Champion (shown here) attended the tea with daughter-in-law Catalina Champion and
granddaughters Maikayla Champion and Hayleigh Riley (right).

Area churches attend VBS
clinic .
SEBRING Sebring First Baptist
Church hosted the 2009 Vacation Bible
School Training Clinic for area churches.
Attendees came from as far away as
Charlie Creek and Arcadia to get a head
start-preparing for this year's VBS.
The Southern Baptist theme-this year,
"Boomerang Express," takes participants to,
the land down under, the Commonwealth'
of Australia.
Director of the clinic was Theresa
Thomas. David Thomas, director of Music
at'First Baptist, wrote the "Decorating
Made Easy" manual, using the Australian
theme, for LifeWay Press.


Stop 'dating' God and say 'I do'


Many of us Christians
don't like process. Many of
us don't like what comes
before reward, but there is
process in the word of God.
We want whatever it is that'
we want and we want it right
now.
Well, the word says to
"consider the cost" before
you go in. Noah had to con-
sider the cost of building the
ark, the ark of the covenant
had a process.
. In other words, whatever it
is that you just have to pos-
sess right now, please con-
sider the process and what
it's going to cost you.
S Now, you do deserve a
lifestyle far beyond what
you're living but you have a
littlee problem getting to that
level of success. You are too
.lazy, too trifling to do what it
takes to go that extra mile,
You want to be carried or
hitch a ride on the coat tail
of another.
I don't know about you
but "I Am Success On It's
Way Somewhere to Happen."
You must study and under-
stand what the will of God is
for your life and proceed to
accomplish the task He's laid
out for you. God will never
give you a vision without the
provisions. Know that our
Father does have a plan for
our lives. II Corinthians 9:6,
"But this I say, He which
soweth sparingly shall reap_..
also sparingly; and he which
soweth bountifully shall reap
also bountifully."
Sowing and reaping is not
always about money, people.
It's about giving; it's about
blessings received; it's-about
praises going up; it's about
thanking our Father; it's
about alms, so sisters and
brothers in Christ Jesus,
don't get it twisted.
God never wants lack of
finances to slow you down.
It is His wish that you
should prosper. God is linked
to Kingdom prosperity. And
listen to this, sowing and
reaping does not exempt you


Sista
Speaks
Edie Dorsey Jebbison

from certain crises in your
lives but it does entitle you to
"help" in your time of need.
We need financial wisdom
for God's wealth because we
wouldn't know what to do
with God's money.
My guess is (arid I'm usu-
ally right) that you would go
on a spending spree and have
a big party just to boast about
"your" money. Your mindset
will not allow you to remem-
ber that it's God's money.
You will not ask God for
instructions on how you
should use His money. Tell
the truth, now. You will try to
justify why you should spend
it the way you want to.
Have you read of the
widow's pot of oil in II
Kings? This woman's hus-
band feared the Lord, was


faithful and the creditors
came to take her two sons
away because payment was
due. She did not have money
to pay and her husband was
dead. The prophet Elisha said
to her, "What shall I do for
thee?"
Now, that's favor because
of her husband's faithfulness.
She followed instructions to
sell the oil that miraculously
appeared in borrowed con-
tainers. The prophet identi-
fied the need, met the need
and the money flowed. The
merchandise of wisdom
maketh rich. You must know
how to use that wisdom.
Our God is a "more than
enough God." When you stop
"dating" God and say "I do"
to Him, you will be blessed
beyond your expectations.
