'I'm going




to miss it




immensely'

Popular downtown Lake Placid

restaurant goes up in flames


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID While the
fire that scorched the Main Street
America eatery Wednesday after-
noon'was out only hours after it
started, the effects were clearly
going to be felt for some time.
Thursday morning, cars slowed
to get a look at the destruction of
the Lake Placid business that had
been a staple in the lives of local
residents for 23 years.
"My mom used to work here,"
said Heather Mulligan. "I came
here for all my birthdays."
Mulligan grew up in Lake


Placid and now works for the
Lake Placid Police Department.
Luckily she had one final
memory to look back on she
ate breakfast there the day of the
fire.
The eatery was only opei for
breakfast and lunch, cli.,ssr at 2
p.m., so nobody was there when
the fire started at 4:30 p.m.
It could have started much ear-
lier than reported, and when fire-
fighters arrived it wasn't long
until the structure was fully
involved.

No decision made on AP church zoning


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK The Planning and
Zoning Board took on the controver-
sial topic of zoning for churches
Tuesday night.
At issue is the fact that the city does
not allow churches to build, or occupy
property, in areas zoned commercial.
This has been the case for some time.
However, when the Union
Congregational Church at 101 Jim
Rogers Ave. opened a lunch room
recently, the constitutional issue of


freedom of assembly blossomed into a
full-blown dilemma.
The church is in a residential zone
which prohibits the establishment of a
restaurant, but when it was suggested
to zone the church commercial the
city zoning restrictions caused a major
problem.
That is because restricting churches
from the right of assembly is against
the law.
Marisa Barmby, of the Central
Florida Regional Planning Council,
explained to. the board that because of


the Religious Land Use and
Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000,
a federal statute that provides strong
protection for religious assembly in
land-use and prison contexts, it was
illegal to allow the right of assembly
to -some groups and not churches.
The problem is complicated, she
explained, because the law has been
broadly interpreted in federal courts.
For example, in Midrash Sephardi
v. Town of Surfside, the Court defined

Plenty of camps to keep kids busy this summer


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING School will soon be
out for summer. Here, as a public
service, is an idea of what local
organizations will be holding pro-
grams for children. There are a
broad range of choices, so much so
we present them in two parts. The
first half was printed in
Wednesday's edition.
The listings are simply alphabeti-
cal.
Lake Denton Camp is a non-
denominational, Christian-based
program, offering a series of resi-
dential camps that combine outdoor
activities with Bible study. The


Second of two parts


costs range from $110 to $160 for
its four-, five- and six- day sessions.
There is a special introductory
one-night camp May 29-30 for chil-
dren who have completed kinder-
garten through the second grade.
Parental involvement for that camp
is strongly encouraged.
Camp activities include canoeing,
sail boating, archery, swimming,
fishing, field games, flag football
and basketball. The camp has an 80-
foot slip and slide in addition to its
own designated swim area.
For an additional $25, children
may join a one-day, on-site scuba


diving experience.
Camps are organized by age, with
one session for children who have
completed second grade through the
fifth grade; a session for children
having completed sixth grade
through eighth grade; and two ses-
sions for adolescents having com-
pleted seventh through 12th grade.
There is a $20 discount for fami-
lies that register at least 20 days
before camp begins and some par-
tial scholarships are available.
Lake Denton Camp is at 790 Lake
Denton Road in Avon Park. Call
453-3627 for more information. .

City of Avon Park reaches agreement with Ted Long


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.comn
AVON PARK Although Avon Park
Public Works Director Ted Long was given
the option to retire, resign or be fired back in
April, a settlement agreement allows him to
remain on the payroll.
Called a "leave of absence" the agreement
has the city paying Long the equivalent of
eight hours per week until Sept. 22, at which
time he can choose to retire.
According to the agreement, Long will be
considered to be employed and will be paid
for an equivalent of eight hours of work each


week for the rest of his leave of absence.
Stated in the short agreement signed by
Long, he will not be required "to report to
work or perform any services for the city."
Additionally, he will receive what would
have been his full paycheck through the week
of May 4.
At the end of the agreement, Long will be
offered the benefits of a 30-year retirement
package.
Since his departure from Avon Park, Long
has obtained employment with the city of
Lake Wales as a wastewater supervisor.
"I am very happy with my new position. I


have to drive a bit farther, but I am glad to be
back at work," Long said in a recent phone
interview.
Although the city has agreed to pay Long,
the statement asserts that "nothing in this
agreement shall be construed as an admission
of wrongdoing by either party."
Within 14 days of the execution of the
agreement, Avon Park will also pay to Long
the lump sum of $3,500.
Frank Sanderson was hired through the
Government Services Group to assess the
water plant and to handle the day-to-day run-
ning of city utilities, which includes responsi-


abilities from waste water management to
street repair.
Along with the assessment of the aging
water treatment plant, the city is currently
conducting a study to determine the amount
of rate increase necessary to allow the enter-
prise to pay for itself.
The overall cost to the city to replace Long
has not yet been fully determined, but a
recent agreement negotiated by Adelt and
then approved by city council puts the cost at
$2,500 per week for GSG and services.

Oral history project

to start in Avon Park


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK What
was everyday life like in
Avon Park in the 1940s,
'50s and '60s?
Some local folks who
lived through those years
are about to answer that
question, thanks, in part, to
a mini-grant awarded by
the Florida Humanities
Council to the Historical
Society of Avon Park. The
grant will help support an
oral history pilot project,
called "Decades of Change:
Black and White Residents
of Avon Park Remember
the Mid-20th Century."
The project involves
interviewing and recording
residents from both the
African-American and
white communities of Avon
Park about their experi-
ences during these three
key decades. "Our goal,"
Larry Levey, society presi-
dent, said, "is to collect a
mix of personal history,
family history and commu-
nity history."
The society is partnering
with two other organiza-
tions on this project: South
Florida Community
College and the Heartland
Cultural Alliance, the arts
council for Highlands
County.
Along with Levey, the
project committee is made
up of Dr. Charlotte Pressler,
director of the SFCC hon-
ors program and treasurer
of the HCA; the Rev.
Benjamin Carter, pastor at
Bethel Pentecostal
Holiness Church in Avon
Park; and Christian
Negron, e-learning techni-
cal assistant at the college.
Serving as humanities
scholar for the project is
Dr. 'James M. Denham,
director of the .Center for
Florida History at Florida
Southern College in
Lakeland. At the comple-
tion of the project, he will
conduct a public forum that


'Oral histories are
needed to give an
accurate picture of
everyday life. The
memories we'll be
capturing are
important for
families, the
community and
professional
historians.'

DR. CHARLOTTE
PRESSLER
director of SFCC honors
program & HCA treasurer

will include a panel of
those interviewed.
"This project represents
a big step forward in 'our
goal of making sure our
museum reflects the entire
Avon Park community,"
Levey said, adding,
"The '40s, '50s and '60s
were times of major
changes in this country.
How local people experi-
enced those changes is an
important part of our histo-
ry."
Copies of the recordings
and the transcripts will be
available at the museum, he
said.
The project committee
has selected potential par-
ticipants and interviewing
is expected to begin shortly.
"I've already spoken
with a number of local
African-American minis-
ters and residents and they
are looking forward to this
project," Carter said.
"This is an opportunity
to gather historical infor-
mation that would other-
wise be lost," Pressler said.
"Oral histories are needed
to give an accurate picture
of everyday life. The mem-
ories we'll be capturing are
important for families, the
community and profession-
al historians."


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Plans are
progressing for a Saturday
Tea Party in Highlands
County. The event has been
set for 10 a.m. to noon
under the pines at the
Florida State Firemen's
Association headquarters
on U.S. 27 south of Avon
Park next to the National
Guard Armory.
The precursor to the Tea
Party was on April 15 when
a number of citizens gath-


ered on street corners along
U.S. 27 from Avon Park to
Lake Placid waving flags
and holding signs in protest
of the runaway spending by
local, state and federal gov-
ernments.
"That event was spurred
by the three 'grassroots
grannies' and was really a
part of a nationwide focus,"
said Mary Bengtson, who
finds herself as one of four
co-chairmen for the May
event.

Memorial Day sacred to '
war veterans
Editor:
Has the meaning of Memorial Day
been lost on the American people?.
Many veterans think so.
Memorial Day is a sacred day to
all war veterans; none need to be
reminded of the reason why it must
be commemorated. But what about
you, the general public, and more
important, future generations? Do
most non-veterans really recognize
the importance of May 30?
Changing the date merely to create
a three-day weekend has undermined
the very meaning of the day. Perhaps
considering we are still at war, a
reminder is due.
Sacrifice is meaningless without
remembrance. America's history
demands that all citizens recall and
be aware of the deaths of their fel-
low countrymen during wartime.
Far too often the nation as a whole
takes for granted the freedoms all
Americans enjoy. Those freedoms
were paid for with the lives of others
few of us actually knew. That is why
they are all collectively remembered
on one special day.
It should be regarded as a civic
obligation to set time aside for this
Memorial Day, for this is a national
debt that can only be repaid by indi-
vidual Americans. By us honoring
the nation's war dead and loved ones
who have touched our lives we pre-
serve their memory and thus their
service and sacrifice in the memories
of future generations.
We truly take a lot for granted.
Forget the football heroes and movie
stars and honor those who gave the
ultimate sacrifice for your freedom.
Only two defining forces have ever
offered to die for you, Jesus Christ
and the American soldier. One died
for your soul; the other for your
freedom.
Join us at American Legion Post
69 in Avon Park or elsewhere for a
service to set Memorial Day aside
for its true meaning! God bless
America and those who serve it!

District 8 President
American Legion Auxiliary


Too much construction is
ruining the state
Editor:
I am concerned about construc-
tion. One of the things that has
attracted tourists is our beautiful
orange groves and, one by one, they
are being replaced. I know tax rev-
enue.is important; however, there are
things that are more important.
When houses are so close together
one can't even have a normal con-
versation without the neighbors
hearing, that is too close. These 80-
foot lots are not sufficient for the
size houses that are being built these
days. Something for the zoning
department to consider. This can also
be a fire hazard.
When we are enticing so many
people to move to Florida when we
don't even have water to take care of
our own, which is already happening
in Hillsborough, that is not good.
Our lakes have always been another
attraction; some of them have been
overfished until you are fortunate to
be able to catch any.
I have been living on Lake
Sebring since 1964. The fishing is
terrible. I have seen changes that are
not in the best interest of the people
as a whole.
All these grants that are being
given, sometimes being used for
things that have to be later corrected.
We've moved everything out to U.S.
27 and now we're trying to move it
back. I wonder how many realize
where the money for these grants
come from.
It seems to me every bill we get is
loaded with tax. My phone bill is
half tax. I think it's time we consider
the cost.
Construction may bring jobs, but
too many have bought houses they
couldn't afford causing many fore-
closures. We don't need to do away
with the good things we've always
enjoyed trying to get another dollar
for something we don't need.
When we destroy the things God
gave us to enjoy we will all suffer. It
seems to me that is about to come to
pass.
I'm praying that all who are in
places of leadership will give serious
0


thought to these issues. Let's
improve and add to what God has
blessed us with that His blessings
may continue.

Lake Forest, Animal
Control are true heroes

When we think of heroes, we
often think of soldiers, policemen or
firemen. Yes, these brave people are
heroes, but we often overlook anoth-

overlook are the people to save ani-
mals, the people who go above and
beyond to save the animals who can-

horse from the accident. Three men
from Animal Control came to his
rescue Darryl Scott, Brandon
Owens, and Ralph Smith. When they
got to his side, they loaded him into
the trailer and called local vets to
work on him. It was late in the night
and they had a very difficult time
finding a vet who was awake or who
would accept the challenge of stitch-
ing up his many wounds. At last they
called Dr. (Mark) Griffin of Lake
Forest'Veterinary Clinic in Avon
Park.
Although he is not a large animal
vet and does not have the equipment
or facility to work on horses, he
accepted the job. Dr. Griffin and the
three men from Animal Control
worked on my horse into the early
morning hours. The men worked
under light only provided by a gen-
erator making the stitch job even
more challenging. All of their hard
worked paid off and they were able
to stop his bleeding and save his life.
None of these men had to do the
things they did for my horse. The
men from Animal Control did not
get paid for all of the hours that they
spent with my horse, and Dr. Griffin
did not have to take the call; after
all, he is a small animal vet. These
men are true heroes!
Dr. Griffin, Darryl Scott, Brandon
Owens, and Ralph Smith truly love
animals. They have a dedication to
their job that is almost unheard of.
They worked on my horse without
even knowing who the horse
belonged to, or, in Dr. Griffin's case,
if he would be paid for his hard
work.
When we thanked these men for
all of their hard work they replied
that they did not do it for us that
they did it for our horse. I will be
forever grateful to everyone who
contributed to saving my horse's
life. All the police officers, Animal
Control workers, Dr. Griffin, the
staff at Lake Forest Veterinary
Clinic, and anyone else I may have
missed. Thank you!

Wars have

put stamp

on music

One of the most lasting
monuments to the spirit of a
time of war is the music
most remembered by the sol-
diers who participated and
the popular spirit of the
time. After years of "Yankee
Doodle Dandy" and "Dixie"
and living through the
bloody reality, the ultimate
song of the Civil War was
"Tenting Tonight," a lament
seeking an ending. It's open-
ing lyric :
"We're tenting tonight on
the old campground give us
a song of cheer. Our weary
hearts, a song of home, and
friends we love so dear.
"Many of the hearts that
are weary tonight, fishing
for the war to cease; Many
of the hearts that are looking
for the right to see the dawn
of peace."
By the time of the
Spanish-American War, the
misery of the Civil War
behind us, "jingoism" was
all the rage. Sample a por-
tion of a popular ditty of the
day; from "On the
*Transport:" "The starry flag,
the stricken' Maine, the sulk-
ing foes, the search to find
'em, the vicious cowardice
of Spain the darling Girls
they left behind 'em."
By World War I, Irving
Berln's tunes captured the
spirit of the times, confident
and militaristic: "Over there,
over there, send the word,
send the word over there,
that the yanks are coming

Later in the war, however,
an English song "There's a
Long, Long Trail A-
Winding" reflecting the
weariness, became more
popular.
World War II, a different
harvest, one of tenderness,
humor and nostalgia, a long-
ing for home. The most
remembered: "Don't sit
under the apple tree with
anyone else but me. Till I
come marching home." and
"I'll be home for Christmas
You can count on me ... I'll
be home for Christmas If
only in my dreams."
The Korean War seemed
to have no music of its own,
the irreverent tunes remem-
bered were "Rag Mop" a
singular annoying bit of
drivel played by sadistic
D.I.'s at reveille and a jolly
ditty about a pawn shop in
Pittsburgh. As if it never
happened and we weren't
there.
Vietnam produced a few
tunes, truly reflecting of the
mood of those Who soldiered
there. The leading con-
tenders, "The Eve of
Destruction" and "We've
Gotta Get Out of This
Place," reflected once and
for all the viewpoint of the
troops, despite the politics
and world view of the era.
The Iraq war has yet to
put their stamp on American
music but it is extremely
doubtful that it will resound
with pleasant nostalgia.

News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Tom Macklin, a member of Avon Park's Planning and
Zoning board, was concerned Tuesday night by the high
number of churches within city limits which, because
they are tax exempt, diminish the town's property tax
base. He hopes to continue to keep churches out of
commercial areas and promote taxable businesses
instead.

AP church zoning

issue still unresolved


Continued from page 1A
assembly as "a company of
persons collected together
in one place (usually) and
usually for some common
purpose as deliberation
and legislation, worship or
social entertainment."
Barmby explained that
meant the Court concluded
that churches and syna-
gogues, as well as private
clubs, daycare centers,
drinking establishments
and lodges, fall within the
natural perimeter of assem-
bly or institution.
In other words, Barmby
explained, it is a violation
of the federal statute to per-
mit other -land uses 'that
meet the definition of
assembly in a zoning clas-
sification and not permit
religious assemblies or
institutions in that zoning
classification.
"Religious land use has
strong protection," she
said. "You have to treat
both the same."
But Tom Macklin, a
member of the Planning
and Zoning Board, said his
main conflict, "is that so
many vacant storefronts
and churches are going off
the tax rolls. Something
like 63 percent (of Avon
Park properties) pay no ad
valorem taxes. It's not just
the churches, it's non-prof-
its too.
"It's obvious to me that
this RLUIPA couldn't care
less if Avon Park has a tax
base or not. We might as
well as unincorporated and
let the county have it


back."
Speaking further after
the meeting, Macklin men-
tioned a photograph that
hangs in the stairwell of
city hall. He couldn't
remember the exact num-
bers, but a sign in the pho-
tograph, claimed the city
had a population of 4,000
or 5,000, and seven or eight
churches.
"Now we've only rough-
ly doubled the population,"
he said, "but. we have over
50 churches.
"Churches have a posi-
tive impact on a communi-
ty," he added, "but they
have a negative one as well.
We have enough chal-
lenges."
In the course of the meet-
ing, it was decided to give
the city attorney and
Central Florida Regional
Planning Council more
time to look into the issue
and work out a solution.
If the regional council
didn't act in the end, than
the zoning board would
reconsider making a recom-
mendation.
Macklin, making it clear
he was throwing out an
idea, suggested that if
churches were to be
allowed in commercially
zoned areas, then the city
might consider eliminating
its ordinance requiring a
150 feet distance between
churches and establish-
ments that serve alcohol by
the glass.

Fire destroys Lake Placid restaurant


Continued from page 1A
As owner Shawn Larkin watched the
fire spread from one side of the roof to
the other over the course of an hour, he
knew this was the end of the eatery as
locals knew it.
"I'd like to rebuild but it depends,"
he said. "I don't know what insurance
does."
After paying $9,000 a year to insure
the business, he said the payments
were now worth it.
He has faced adversity before, when
the restaurant closed for a week after
an electrical panel caught fire in the
office.
That time.the restaurant was full of
customers. Fortunately fire extinguish-
ers manned by employees made short
work of the fire before any real dam-
age could be done.
Then during the hurricanes of 2004,
the building lost its roof, back porch
and all of its food all within a week.
"Everyone had their stories then," he
said, downplaying their trouble.
The State Fire Marshal's Office was
on scene Wednesday morning conduct-
ing an investigation, but couldn't point
to an exact cause by press time.
"They said they heard a loud bang,"
said Sam Venzeio, the Public
Information Officer. "Whether it was
something that went off in there or if it

was lightning, we don't know right
now."
Spectators on scene said the fire
started at about the same time a thun-
derstorm passed over the town.
"We started with a bang, I guess we
ended with a bang," Larkin said.
Larkin and one of his brothers con-
verted the building, which used to


house Hathaway's Laundromat, into
the restaurant 23 years ago.
His parents ran it until they retired to
Fort Lauderdale. About eight years ago
his brothers followed them and Shawn
has been the only Larkin running it
since, doing so with his wife.
"I'm going to miss it immensely," he
said.

but staggering debt and
stiff competition forced it
into Chapter 11 for the first
time in the fall of 2007.
"There were just four of
us left this year. The other
stores and the corporate
stores closed last year. I
would like to thank
Sebring for all of their sup-
port, the community has


been great," Edmonds said.
Edmonds stated that he
leases the building, and is"
unsure what, if anything, is
scheduled to come in there
next.
S"It is a popular spot, and
the owner should have no
problem leasing this place,
but with the economy you
never know," Edmonds
said.

Wide variety of summer

camps planned this year


Continued from page 1A
Camp Sparta is offering
two types of camping, a sum-
mer long day camp and three
tiers of residential camps:
Beginning June 15, a two-
week camp for third- to fifth-
graders, called Discovery;
then a one-week camp called
Vitality for middle schoolers;
and finally a two-week camp
called Teen Explosion for
adolescents in high school.
Parents may choose to send
their teens to Teen Explosion
for only one of the two
weeks.
Activities include typical
summer water and outdoor
sports. The camp has a ski
boat, a skate park and offers
paint ball.
The day camp is geared for
children from third to fifth
grade and runs from 9 a.m. to
5 or 6 p.m.
The camp is at 5055 Camp
Sparta Road, just off Sparta
Road. Call Mary Evans for
more information at 382-
8696.

Camp Wingmann is
sponsored by the Episcopal
Church but open to children
of all backgrounds. Located
on Trout Lake, north of Avon
Park, it offers three one-week
residential camp experiences
in both June and July. Each
week is geared to a particular
age group, high school, mid-
dle school or elementary
school. The first high school
camp begins June 7.
Each camp starts on
Sunday and runs through to 7
p.m. Friday. During the week
children are offered the tradi-
tional range of water, field
and gym sports, including
kayaking, sail boating, bas-
.ketball, dodge ball and ulti-
mate Frisbee.
A special emphasis is
being put on the arts, with
programs in dance, poetry
and writing, learning musical
instruments and singing
among others.
Twice a day the campers
and councilors gather for an
upbeat, music-filled chapel


experience.
To be sure of a place, par-
ents should make reserva-
tions at least a week before
they want their children to
attend. The cost is $315.
There are a limited number of
scholarships available. For
more information call Bill
Yates at 453-4800 or go to
www.campwingmann.org.

After 22 years, Jackson hangs up coaching hat


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.conm
AVON PARK "It's not
about the wins or the losses,
it has been about the kids,"
said Mort Jackson, at the
close of his 22 years as Avon
Park's head baseball coach.
Jackson just happens to
have the most wins, with
380, and the most losses,
with 231, of any coach in
Red Devil history, mostly, he
asserts, because he has been
there longer than anyone
else.
"We talk all the time about
what is best for the kids
under our care, and I really
hate to see him go because he
is what is best for our kids,",
said Stu Gutherie, Avon
Park's principal and a former
coach as well.
"There are not many
around like him, I'll tell you
that. But I guess every coach
knows when to get out. He
News-Sun file photo by SCOTT DRESSEL did a lot for us throughout
Upon his retirement at the end of this past baseball season, Mort Jackson capped off 22 years at the Red Devil helm, and the years, and he showed
37 years of the Avon Park 'Jacksonian Era' after the 15 seasons Ronnie Jackson lead the team' everyone there is a lot more


to coaching than anyone
thinks," Gutherie added.
'That's sure true. There is
mowing, fertilizing, edging,
and cleaning toilets and uni-
forms," Jackson joked.
"Coaching is not just about
baseball, it's about the kids.
In my first 17 years I never
missed a practice, and I was
always the first one to arrive
and the last to leave. In the
last five or six years, I have
not been the first one there
because of my other duties. I
did not realize how big the
A.D. job had become."
"But I guess I am just
tired. There is a lot to do as
athletic director, and that
responsibility grows each
year. The bottom line is that I
know .what it takes to put a
team back together after the
year we just had, and I don't
have that in me," Jackson
sadly said.

And Another
Thing...

Provetti

beats me

to the

punch
OK, so Ernest Provetti
stole my thunder.
Here I was, ready to lay
into the man who had made
a fool of himself in demand-.
ing an apology from,
Boston's Glen Davis after
the Celtic inadvertently
bumped his son after hitting
the game winning shot this
past weekend.
I was going to rail about
the fact that when you have
courtside seats like Provetti
and his 12-year old son had,
there is always the chance
that you might be in harms
way of an errant pass, a
player valiantly trying to get
a loose ball, or a player who
may have just put up a fade-
away jumper.
I was going to deride the
guy for making such a big
deal about something that
his son may well have
thought was a pretty cool
thing.
I was going to mention
that when you watch the
replays, the son was out of
his seat and with the prox-
imity of. said seats to the
court, by merely standing
up, you're nearly on the
court of play and didn't
seem to be paying much
attention to anything going
on around him. .
Nor did the father seem to
be paying any attention to'
where his child was and that
he should have, given how
close the seats N ere tok.e
action on the court.
And I really -%anted to
chastise him for his state-
ment in his letter to the NBA
that Davis was acting like a
"raging animal with no
regard for fans' personal
safety."
I mean, the demanding of
an apology was just silly and
misguided, but that remark
crossed a line.
The problem is, though,
that Mr. Provetti beat me to

Mark Palmer hands Lions a loss


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK -, It was
pitching that carriedd Avon
Park's Mark PalmerfElectric
to a' 9-3 win over the
Sebring Lions on Monday
night at Durrah .Martin
Field.
. Mark Palmer started off
behind when the Lions
jumped out in the first
inning with Ryan McNew
snagging the RBI with a
sac-fly.
But the Avon Park team
gained momentum as they
went along, relying on
Anthony Caruthers strike-
outs and Mason Jahana's
defense to cap the win in the
top of the seventh.
"Anihony 'threw strikes,
and he warmed-up as the
game went on. Our other
stand-out was catcher Cody
,Pearlman: Cody we call Mr.
Hustle. He was making
great stops that helped to
keep us in the game. He was
quick on the bat, and he
helped advance the runner
for us," said Mark Palmer
head coach Steve Farr.
Pearlman went 2-for-4 at
the plate, but it was appar-
ent that his quick responses
to passed balls and defen-
sive plays created havoc for
the Lions all night long.

Park Mark Palmer Electric's 9-3 win over the Sebring
Lions in Dixie Play.


Additionally, Pearlman's
play kept Caruthers out of
trouble on several occasions
as the evening went along.
"I just kept concentrating
on throwing strikes," said
Caruthers after the game.
Coming on in relief,
Caruthers threw 55 pitches,


had four strike-outs, three
base on balls and gave up
just one hit in four innings.
"My curve and my fast-
ball were working for me. I
had some trouble getting
started, but I felt stronger as
the game went on,"
Caruthers said.

Sebring senior Ashley;Potts
gets ready to sign a letter of
intent to join the Warner
University cheerleading
squad in the fall with her
parents, Kim and Robert
O'Connori Edge Cheer
coaches Maurice Williams
and Jenny Rowe and Warner
coach Courtney Hall in
attendance. Having spent
three years with the Sebring
cheerleading squad and two
with the Edge cheer team,
Potts liked the comfortable
atmosphere and nearby
location of Warner. Hall, a
Warner graduate herself, is
launching a new competitive
era for the team. "We
haven't competed in the last
couple years," Hall said.
"So we're building a founda-
tion and along with being a
great athlete, Ashley has the
type of attitude and enthusi-
asm that will really help."
For Edge, it was a big step
as well with Rowe noting

Jackson earns


Dixie Scholarship


Courtesy photo
Avon Park senior Kyle Jackson was recently selected as
a recipient of a 2009 Dixie Boys Baseball, Inc.
Scholarship. The $1,250 award, presented to him by
Rick Callahan, the Scholarship Committee Chair for the
state of Florida, will help defray some of the initial cost
of attending school as Jackson joins the baseball team at
South Florida Community College in the fall. The
"Bernie Varnadore Dixie Boys Scholarship Program"
was established in 1987 and to date, more than a quar-
ter-million dollars has been awarded. Each year, win-
ners are selected from an eleven-state region that has
participants in the Dixie Baseball organization. The
scholarship application emphasizes the criteria of good
citizenship (school and community) and scholastic
achievement. The only stipulation is that the student has
participated in the Dixie Boys, Inc. program at some .
point in the past

LOOKING BACK

10 YEARS AGO
May 15, 1999: Two area drivers won drag racing passes at Sebring International Raceway as Avon
Park's Butch Martin won theTrophy Street dass with a time of 16.314 seconds in his 1978 Camaro and
Sebring's Scott Johnson won the Super E-T dass in 11.914 seconds at 111.49 miles-per-hour in his
1965 Chevy Nova.
20 YEARS AGO
May 19, 1989: As Sebring wrestler Ben Baumer announced his intentions to take his talents to the
, University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, he learned he was named a High School All-American by Wrestling
USA magazine. In his four-year career, the Blue Streak grappler compiled a 117-19 record and it was
believed that Baumer was the first athlete of any kind in Sebring history to be named an All-American.
Even more surprising is that a Florida wrestler was even named. With no college programs in the state
having a wrestling team, and college coaches usually being the source for magazines putting together a
team, Baumer's obstacles were daunting. But, as with most of his opponents on the matt, Baumer over-
came.

Today in Sports History

Union Grounds, in Brooklyn, becomes the first baseball enclosure to open, way
