SEBRING When .
Matthew Christian drove
by Sparta Road on
Wednesday. he saw a
small patch, ma.be three,
square feet, of dry grass
burning b\ the side of the
road.
Within 15 minutes the
fire spread across the
entire vacant lot between
Koy Drive and Baker
Lane and was heading for
a line of thick bushes and
trees just feet away from
two homes'.
"Probably a cigarette is
my guess," Christian said
about the fire's origin.
"The wind blew and took
it off. It was moving
quick to those houses."
Though the fire was put
out before damage was
done to anyone's home, it
took h dozen men, a few
vehicles and more than
one department to put the
blaze out.,
"Stuff is ripe to burn
now," Sebring Fire.Chief
Brad Batz said, referring
to the combination of dry
conditions, low humidity
and high winds.
If the person who


flicked their cigarette out
the window was caught,.
they might have been
forced to pay for the cost
of the men and machines
needed to put the fire out.
"That person can be
fined and charged for all
costs of suppression,"

and focus.
Every school in Highlands

did considerably better.
Cracker Trail Elementary
School's fourth-graders led the way
with not only 95 percent of its stu-
dents producing a passing score of
3.5 out of 6, but 90 percent produc-
ing scores of 4 or better. Seven stu-
dents scored 5.5 out of 6, and four
produced perfect scores of 6.
Cracker Trail's overall combined
score was 4.4. Only one student
scored lower than a 3.0
"We are ecstatic, just ecstatic,"
said Richard Demeri, Cracker
Trail's principal.

percent of the students scored a 3.5
or better and the school produced an
overall combined score of 4.3 out of

being raffled off by Costello Brothers Construction is part
of the recent renovations to the house.

AVON PARK When
you think of a raffle, you
think of lots of people and
door prizes. But almost no
one thinks of raffling off a
house.
Yep, a whole house.
Andy Costello, of Costello
Brothers Marine
Construction, .decided .that
the house had to go, and that
helping out with a couple of
charities was the way to do it.
According to Costello, the
two-bedroom, one-bath lake


house is located at 2160 State
Road 17 in Avon Park,' and
for a $100 per ticket, the
$185,000 home is a steal.
"Everyone thinks this is a
good idea, and with the econ-
omy the way it is, a chance toq
get a house for $100 bucks is
a good deal," Costello said.
The proceeds of the raffle,
after the mortgage is covered,
will go to support the
Wounded Warrior Project, a
group that helps support
severely wounded service
members by providing


unique services, and The 1st
U.S. Volunteer Cavalry
Regiment known as the
Rough Riders out of the
Tampa Bay area.
According to the Costello
Construction's Web site, the
Rough Riders are known for
their teddy bear runs
throughout the year. The
teddy bears are donated to
local hospitals.

vet," Costello said as to why
he picked the two charities

Pastor hopes to open transitional shelter


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.uffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK Pastor Barbara
Robinson wants the community to
know she hopes to bring a special min-
istry to Highlands County.
She plans on turning the house at
302 Garrett Road into a transitional
home for women dealing with issues.
The transitional shelter will be
called Ruth House and be an outreach
center as well. Robinson said she was
starting from scratch and the home,
which will have space for up to seven
women, could use donations of beds,
linens, kitchenware and furniture.


"I want to help the transitional
women who0are hard to target and Hard
to serve," she said. "Women who are
just getting out of jail and have no
where to go, or are just homeless."
Her focus is on those women who
tend to fall between the cracks. "There
are lot's of. places for kids," she said,
adding that as ,they age out, however,
they are often abandoned by the sys-
tem.
She invites everyone to a rally,
march and dedication service this
Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. It will


house.
"Bring your Jehosophats, your inter-
cessors and musicians.. We're taking
back what the enemy has stolen from
our family, community and the body of
Christ."
Robinson says she is an Avon Park
girl who transplanted to West Palm
Beach 10 years ago and wants to stay
connected. "We'll rally right in front of
the house. We'll be trying to take back
the area for our children and our chil-
dren's children."
Refreshments will be served after


take place on the beach front by the the dedication ceremony.

Horse Liniment
Erases Pain
HIALEAH, FL An ingredient
often used to treat inflammation in
race horse legs, is now back on the
market in its original doctor recom-
mended clinical strength formula.
According to a national drug store
survey, the formula at one time be-
came so popular that it rose to the top
of pharmacy sales for topical pain
relievers. But the company market-
ing the product at thd time changed
the formula and sales plummeted.
One of the inventors of the original
formula has brought it back to the
market under the trade name ARTH
ARREST and says it can relieve pain
for millions.
ARTH ARREST works by a dual
mechanism whereby one ingredient
relieves pain immediately, while a
second ingredient seeks out and de-
stroys the pain messenger signal be-
fore it can be sent to the brain. Con-
sidered a medical miracle by some.
the ARTH ARREST formula is use-
ful in the treatment of painful disor-
ders ranging from minor aches and
pains to more serious conditions such
as arthritis, bursitis. rheumatism.ten-
donitis, backache and more.
ARTH ARREST is available in a
convenient roll-on applicator at phar-
macies without a prescription or call
1-800-339-3301. Now available at:

Moran to speak
on pandemic flu
at LP Library
Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID -
Thomas J. Moran, planning
consultant with the
Highlands County Health
Department, made a pres-
entation on pandemic flu in
March at the Lake Placid
Memorial Library at 205 W.
Interlake Blvd.
At that time, interested
citizens of the town attend-
ed. Because of recent
increased concerns due to
the swine flu pandemic,
more people are requesting
information, so Mr. Moran
has agreed to return to the
library at 4 p.m. on Tuesday
to speak on the subject
again.
Pandemic flu prepared-
ness is one of the most
important subjects in this
new century. The last time
that there was a major pan-
demic flu was in 1918-19.
At that time, more people
died in the event than those
that were lost In all of
World War I. Fifty million
people are estimated to
have perished.
Since then, there have
been events in 1957 and
1968, which combined to
cause a total loss of about 3
million lives.
The time for preparation
is now. Plan to attend this
most important event.
Seating is limited to 25
people. Call Kathleen Mills
Montgomery or Maria
Chenique at 699-3705 to
make arrangements to
attend.

"It's been high, it seems like

Add a steady wind to a

for disaster.
"Wind is a big factor,"
Batz said. "The more oxy-

can burn. That small fire can
grow real quick."

A Heart's
Journey
Janelle Dennison

Character

goes much

further than

any gifts

We have some great
churches in Highlands
County if you're a church-
goer.
I am privileged to be a
part of Christian Training
Church in Sebring. What
picture comes to your
mind? Maybe all the wor-
ship services are Sunday
school classes? We're
being trained how to be
Christians (shouldn't we
already know how)? We're
graded on what we learn?
We memorize Scriptures?
That wouldn't be such a
bad idea, but no one
demands you do (though it
benefits you).
Rumor has it some
believe we handle snakes
... no thank you! I'm
squeamish even over bugs,
much less snakes. Eek!
If those who believe that
could sit down for a few
minutes with my pastor,
Linda Downing, they'd
know she was too well-cul-
tured a lady to mess with
snakes. But she's not so
cultured that she can't
have good, clean, fun. She
can sing too, her voice is
up in the rafters, the high-
est I've heard and sounds
great. She's also strong in
spirit so if you're ready
to grow up-and get over it,
you'll like her style.
Her husband, Chester,
can give you all the history
of Highlands County you
ever want to know. He's a
real down-to-earth fellow
with a heart of gold and
lets his light shine for all
to see.
At our church, you are
guaranteed to get a good
dose of the Word of God.
Pastor Downing is a schol-
ar of the Word, studying
day and night. That is her
full-time job, other than
pastoring and the duties
that come with it.
And talk about music.
We have an awesome band
who accompanies only one
of the few greatest guitar
players (and he's the asso-
ciate minister) in the coun-
ty Casey Downing. He's
not your typical minister,
which makes attending
church even more fun and
uplifting. Words to
describe him fail me (good
words, of course).
The band is comprised
of Barbara, Darlene and
Michael, who play the
piano, guitar and drums,
respectively. They're just
good old-fashioned "no-
nonsense" people, along
with their spouses, sharing
the talents God gave them.
The people at the church
are your friendly,
respectable, hard-working
people who love their Lord
and believe in practical'
Christianity. Truly we need
to know how to live in
these trying times and that
is what our pastor and
associate minister endeav-
or to teach us.
With all the scandals
that have rocked the
church world, a little more
Christian training can
never hurt. Sometimes
with all the "faith" preach-
ing, we forget how to
"love our neighbor" and be
faithful in the workplace,
not cheat on our taxes, lit-


tie things like that.
.Character goes a lot far-
ther .than any gifts we may
possess ... it carries us
through the long haul of
life's journey.
May you be blessed as
you attend your place of
worship this Sunday.

"Attack" on the
American working
class
Editor:
Transparency or cover-up?
Is the new president cover-
ing up many of the things
the American working class
were looking to have cor-
rected? You be the judge.
We have 20 million more
jobs being done by illegals
and foreign workers, "E-ver-
ify" could ferret out many of
those illegals, but "E-verify"
is being blocked, could it be
the new Congress and the
new president plan a new
amnesty program.
Many states are being put
into a bankrupt condition ,
paying the bills of illegals. If
this were. not bad enough,
the new president is
installing into his cabinet
those that promote NAFTA,
CAFTA, the favored trade
deal with China to continue.
They are letting energy bills
to start rising again even
though oil by the barrel is
falling. The stimulus pro-
grams are not promoting
jobs as a first priority.
The multi-national cham-
ber of commerce, they would
rather be falsely called the
American Chamber of
Commerce. They promote
the dumping of foreign
goods, the destruction of "E-
verify," the importing of for-
eign workers. I would sug-
gest that the Supreme Court
ask them to stop using the
title "American" Chamber of
Commerce.
The new administration is
not promoting change but
rather more of the same. His
only big change that should
have happened many years
ago is equal pay for women
and that will be his legacy
for his first four years. I
hope I am wrong as he has
not been given time as yet to
make his move. I hope it is
transparent and favors
America.

Profiles in caution
Editor:
Recently it has come to
light that many of the
Republicans in the House
secretly admitted that
Obama's stimulus bill, was
the right direction for gov-
ernment to take and wished
for its passage but withheld
their support and vote,isolely
out of the fear of neocon
attacks and primary opposi-
tion in the next election.
Surely not the Hemmingway
definition of courage as
grace under pressure.
This reaction raises an
interesting contrast to the
qualities approved of in
JFK's "Profiles in Courage,"
where certain politicians
decided that doing the right
thing was more important
than acting solely in their
own personal interest and
political survival.
This, in turn, brings up an
often debated question as to
the appropriate role for an
elected official, viz. is the
official charged with using
his own good judgment in
the best interests of the peo-
ple, or is his obligation
merely to parrot the loudest
or prevailing views of his
constituency, however mis-
taken or misguided this may
be?
The "Profiles in Courage"
approach supports "doing
the right thing, regardless of
contemporary unpopularity
and taking the consequences,
while acting for the "vox
populi" and reflecting solely
their will may be a sure path
to reelection but does it nec-
essarily lead to good govern-
ment and well serve the peo-
ple ?"
When a representative is
selected to serve because he .
has wisdom and experience
and is expected to make wise
decisions, how are the peo-


TODAY'S LETTERS
ple served if he is expected
to bend to the opinion of the
crowd which may be ill-
informed, based on bias or
just generally wrong ? While
consistent disagreement with
one's constituency will sure-
ly lead to defeat in the next
election, isn't a representa-
tive obligated to do his best
while in office, rather than
just serve as a mouthpiece or
parrot ?
"Party Discipline is yet
another way of clubbing
independent thinkers into
conformity as demonstrated
in the current case of moder-
ate Republicans not voting
their conscience or best
judgment for fear of faction-
al reprisal.
Doing right is not always
the easy nor the popular
thing but isn't it more
important, in the final analy-
sis, than ducking one's
responsibility or acting as a
mere puppet to preserve
one's re-elect ability ?

Cheers to the best
in the state
Editor:
I would like to say a big
"thank you" to a lot of spe-
cial people in our communi-
ty. I am the advisor/coach of
the varsity cheerleading and
competition teams at Sebring
High School. Every year I
have the honor of the contin-
ued support of our parents,
administration, school board,
Sebring Firemen, Inc., and
various community business
people. Without this contin-
ued support, our program
could not continue at the
level for which we have
become known throughout
the state.
There are a few people I
would like to publically
extend my thanks: To the
Sebring Firemen who contin-
ue to support our community
athletes. Without this group


of self-less men who support
all of our sports at Sebring
High School, we vould not
have the, opportunities that
we do. To Jenny Rowe and
The Edge Cheer Center who
continue to greatly enhance
our tumbling and stunting
skills. To Terry Quarles, ath-
letic director, and Toni
Stivender, principal. Without
the support and leadership of
these two people many of
our programs would not be
where they are today. Thank
you for always trying to help
in any way possible and
being some of our biggest
fans.'
A special thanks to my
husband of 34 years for all
the late nights and long
weekends. To Maurice
Williams, my counterpart
and great friend, who makes
this program what it is.
To Kristina Bach, Erin
Byrne, Wendy Cloud and
Natalie Grubb who did a
wonderful job "coaching"
and helping our cheerleaders
... thank you for your long
hours and hard work in mak-
ing our programs what they
are today. To the cheerlead-
ing booster club, headed by
Tammy Hancock. There are
not enough words to thank
you for your endless efforts
to help our cheerleaders.
And to some of the most
wonderful parents ever. You
put in countless hours of
time and money helping
your child be a part of our
program. We would not
make it without you.
And last but not least to
what I have always consid-
ered the very best group of
cheerleaders in the state. We
have won the state champi-
onship two years in a row,
but most importantly, we
have had many wonderful
memories and great times
this year. Never forget what
you can accomplish when
you work together toward
your goals! God has so rich-
ly blessed me with the
opportunity to serve our
youth!


We are so proud to repre-'
sent our school and commu-
nity in the various competi-
tions across the state and in'
the nation. Cheers!

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

High School

cuts not too

unkind
Like many of you, I'm
sure, I.was a bit disheart-
ened upon the news that
the Florida High School
< Athletic Association
board of directors voted
to reduce sports sched-
ules across the state.
You can't.say it was
completely unexpected,
given the state of the
economy, but it was just
an added bit of bad news
that is yet another slap-
S in-the-faCe reminder.
Some schools, in fact,'
were likely facing mak-
S ing cuts independent of
the FHSAA ruling, so
perhaps this will take
some pressure off.
Sure there are com-
plaints, but that's to be
expected when any tough
decision is' niade, espe-
cially when it comes to
our children.,
And considering the
state of things, it doesn't
seem there really was
much choice would you
rather lose some games
or lose jobs?
One sport being left.
untouched is football,
which of course some
will complain about.
But the fact is, football
already has a shorter
schedule than most other
sports, and at most high
schools, it is the money-
maker that adds cash to
athletic departments.
It's the sport that helps
support the others.
There were some com-
plaints that this would
effect chances for college
scholarships, which I
don't quite get.
If this ruling was for
some schools, 1 could see
that, but if .all schools are
still playing'the satiie
number of games, having
the same iiumber of
meets, then the playing
field is even. "
There was a complaint
from a track and field
coach as to how important
it is for the student-,ath-
letes to have their races.
But when. you look at
the numbers, I'm not
quite sure the outrage
holds that much water.
Track and field, for
S- example, is going from a
13-meet schedule to 11.
S- Were those two extra
meets that crucial?
S The other sports, bas-
ketball, baseball, softball,
soccer and volleyball are
S- going from 25 to 20, ten-
nis and wrestling from 18
to 15, golf from 14 to 12
S and swimming and
weight lifting join track
S and field at goiig from
.13 to I .
it real doesn't look
S that bad'.o be honest.
In moments of crisis,
sacrifices have to be
made.
Some school boards
have suggested cutting
sports altogether, an
extreme measure that I
would not be in favor of.
But losing a few games


per season for the time
being the policy will
run for the next two
school years seems a
good compromise.
And it keeps me
employed for the time
being.

Red Devils stun Palmetto

Jackson's coaching career extended for one more Sebring showdown

the job it never quite Av

lar season and gave

ping third-seeded
Palmetto, 6-0, in the

District 10-4A tournament
Tuesday night.
"We lost both games
Park during the season,"
Jackson said. "We had
i -them beat both times
going into the fifth or
etto sixth inning, but our
pitching got tired.'
"But in this tourna-
ment, we had every-
body ready to back up


the pitching." ,
That corral of relief pitch-
ers wouldn't be necessary,
however, as Dylan Heiring
took to the task virtually by
himself, giving up just two
Tiger hits on the night and
escaping a bases-loaded jam
with one out in the first by
recording his lone strike out
and inducing a ground-out to
first.


'This could be
the last one, or it
could be a step to
the next one.' -

MORT JACKSON
Red Devil head coach
That effort held up the
three runs the Devils had


opened the game with, with
Heiring himself having the
big blow a two-run double.
"Dylan pitched a great
game for us and our defense
was stellar behind him,"
Jackson said. "He went six
and one-third and then Kyle
(Jackson) came in and struck
out the final two batters."

LAKE PLACID The
early going of ,Tuesday's
District 10-3A tournament
semifinal looked to be a con-
tinuance of the Green
Dragons late-season play.
But the early .5-1 *lead
wouldn't hold as the McKeel
Academy 'Wildcats came
back for a 9-5 win to lock up
a spot against Frostproof in
the district final and an
entrance' into the state region-
al playoffs.
"We told the, kids before
the game that this pitcher of
theirs doesn't walk people


and that they needed to swing
the bats," head coach Dan
Coomes said. "And they did
that."
That they did as Lake
Placid jumped out with three
first-inning runs off McKeel
starter Anthony Doval.
With two out, Logan Smith
was hit by a pitch before con-
secutive singles from Kyle
Barber, James Whitehead and
Zach Heckman put the
Dragons on top.
The Wildcats scratched for
an unearned run in the bot-
tom of the frame, but Lake

Carrie Dudek tries to outrun this bunt Tuesday night, but it
was Lake Wales that ran past the Lady Blue Streaks, 10-0,

LAKE WALES The
Sebring Lady Blue Streaks
lost 10-0 in the regional soft-
ball playoffs to Lake Wales
Tuesday after struggling
defensively) for five innings.
"Our defense is usually a
lot stronger than we were
tonight," said Sebring coach
Joe Sinness. "We only gave!
up four earned runs,,but' we
just could not seem to get the "
breaks on defense.
"We came in a little
uptight, and then we gave
away six runs in the first
inning," he added. "And that
will take the wind out of any-
body's sails."
The loss to the Lady
Highlanders puts the Streak
record at a respectable 16-8
for the season, but knocks
them out of the running for
state.
Even though the game was
called at five innings because
of the mercy rule, Sinness
was not without praise for the

Lady Streaks and their play
throughout the season.
"I have seen tons of
improvement since we faced
them last. Tonight we put the
ball in play, the last time we
faced them, we could not
seem to get a hit," Sinness
said. "We will have a bit of a.
re-building to do next year.
We are losing five seniors
and just have three juniors to
replace them," Sinness said.
"I am pretty- happy with our
pitching, Haley (Pack) is a
good player, and I look for-
ward to seeing her pitch for
us next year. She is just a
freshman and is coming back,
that's something to build on."

Coomes said. "Our kids


were coming together and
playing well of late. It's too
bad we had to stop the run
right now."
And so, like just about
every other team that plays
a season, it ends with a loss,
but Coomes had nothing
but good thing to say about
his Dragon squad.
"This is a good group of
kids, the best group I've
ever had," he said.
"They're the best overall
team I've had talent-wise.
I've had teams in the past
where I didn't have any-
body on the bench to put in.
With this team, I could put
players in and not worry,
knowing they'd get the job
done wherever I put them."
And while his team will
lose five valuable seniors
from the squad, a good core
of younger players will be
coming back.
"We've got a good group
coming back that will know
what it takes to get to this
point," Coomes said. "And
they'll be better for the
experience this season."

Devils reach district semis


Continued from 1B
Avon Park added to the
lead with lone runs in the
second, fifth and seventh,
with Buddy Duke and
Densby Jackson getting the
RBI hits that sent the
Devils into Thursday
night's match-up with
Sebring in the district
semifinal.
"It's kind of fitting isn't
it," Jackson said. "As big a
rivalry as we've had, as
much as we've played each
other over the years I
couldn't even tell you how
many times we must have


played each other.
"This could be the last
one, or it could be a step to
the next one for us," he
continued. "(Sebring)
Coach (Hoppy) Rewis is
such a great friend. We've
coached against each other
for so long, I coached with
him in football. Either way
it will be bittersweet, but if
that's when it ends, at least
I got beat by a good
friend."

coverage of the Avon Park,
Sebring district tournament
semifinal.

Remembering Andrew Waite


This past week, Andrew Waite,
a local 7-year old boy, went to
claim his new home in Heaven.
After beating the odds with an
incurable condition, he lived
more than twice his expected life
span.
While it is natural to mourn
his passing, it is wonderful to
know that now he can run, talk
and live as never before! In heav-
en, there is no more sickness,
pain or sorrow.
We have these
precious promises
to claim because
of the goodness
of God.
One of
Andrew Andrew's favorite
Andrew things to do was
to play baseball in the Miracle
League of Lake Placid. It is
because of the many kind people .
in the community that Andrew
was able to have his wishes come
true and play a game he loved.
No one will know how far a self-
less act and loving gesture will
go; but we do know it meant
everything to little Andrew.
As we, look back on a life that
was so brief, may we be remind-
ed of the truths that apply to each


Timeless
Treasures
Luke
Knickerbocker


one of us.
First, we must
realize that
life is short,
but eternity is
long. James
4:14 says,
"For what is
your life? It is
even a vapour,
that appeareth
for a little
time, and then.
vanisheth
away."


Thankfully, for the Christian,
this life on earth is the worst we
will ever experience. Sadly,
though for the unbeliever, this
life is the best he will know.
Remember, eternity lasts forever.
We must prepare now while we
still have the choice.
Secondly, there are many other
people that we impact during our
life. I am amazed at the many
people who knew Andrew from
the school, Miracle League, as
well as friends of the family.
Many people are affected by our
life, regardless how'long or short
it may be.
Lastly, we do not know when
it will be our time to meet the


Lord. Death is imminent, and '
only God knows when we will
draw our last breath. We all have
an appointment with God, and
we will not be late to this one!
The Bible says, "And as it is
appointed unto men once to die,
but after this the judgment."
(Hebrews 9:27) Death is the
result of sin. We all have sinned,
and will die as a result. Jesus
never sinned, but died in our
place that we may have life eter-
nal. Jesus promises a place in
heaven for those who know Him
personally and have their sins
forgiven.
Are you ready to meet God?
We each must be prepared to die.
Until we are ready to die, we are
not yet prepared to live. When
we trust Christ to be our Saviour,
we have peace with God and
may have the assurance that
Heaven is our home.
There is no greater comfort to
a family like Andrew's, than to
know he is at last safe in the
arms of Jesus!
