Court docket loaded with notable cases on Thursday


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING A busy day in the
county courthouse saw two men
accused of murder, as well as former
Sebring City Council member Dan
Andrews, and Dustin Germaine, 'the
son of Clerk of Courts Bob
Germaine, face judges.
While no plea deals were struck,
more than one trial will start before
the end of the year.
James Barnes Jr., 64, is accused of
killing his wife and leaving her body
in a Lorida orange grove in October.
He faces charges of premeditated


Andrews Barnes


murder, but the state will not seek .the
death penalty.
The News-Sun spoke with Barnes'
family shortly after the victim's body
was found on Oct. 13, 2008.
They said Barnes took care of the
victim, who had been an Alzheimer's


Germaine


Kalinowski


patient for eight years.
Investigators from the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office said the
woman's health was the motive they
were given by Barnes when he turned
himself in.
State appointed defense attorney


Deborah Goins said there were
upcoming dates for deposition in
August and discovery was ongoing.
Barnes will see the judge again on
Aug. 20 to make final arrangements
and set a trial date. Goins said the
defense would be ready for trial by
late November.
The other' murder case inching
closer to trial is that of Andrew
Kalinowski, 22, who allegedly shot
two men in the face in June of 2008
in retaliation for a fight he was in ear-
lier that evening.

AP holds

off on

budget

decisions
By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
christopher ruffpeyi@ne ssun corn
AVON PARK City
Manager Sarah Adelt told
the citys council at
Tuesday's special meeting
that it would be best to
wait until the end of June
to make decisions regard-
ing the city budget for fis-
cal year 2009-10.
That is partly because
the city needs new poli-
cies, and perhaps some
new ordinances in order to
adapt and respond to the
struggling economy in
general and the city's spe-
cific problems, she said,
adding that she and her
staff are working on ideas.
Another reason to wait
was that the state is
expected to be releasing
tax revenue estimates cov-
ering the rest of the year in
June. Until those figures
are known, Adelt said,
crafting a budget will be
impossible. .
So far, for example, the
general fund has lost
$105,000 in expected state
revenues.
When asked by council
member Joe Wright what
she thought the future held
in terms of future revenue,
Finance Director Renee
Green replied, "I think
anything with sales tax
will go down in June."
In a memo to Adelt,
passed on to the council,
Green was more detailed
and both pleased and con-
cerned.
"I am very pleased to
say that the departments
have worked very hard in
the past six months jo keep
their budgets in control ...
The city-is within its budg-
et for the first six months
of the year. Fifty percent
or less has been spent."

Two dead

after fiery

wreck on

S.R. 70
News-Sun staff report
LAKE PLACID -. Two
people were killed in a
fiery wreck Wednesday
morning when their van
collided with a semi on
State Road 70 west of
U.S. 27.
The identity of the vic-
tims has not been posi-
tively confirmed, accord-
ing to Lt. Chris Miller of
the Florida -Highway
Patrol, but they were an
adult and a small child.
"We have a general
idea who they are, but
we're waiting on a posi-
tive identification, by the
medical examiner,"
Miller said.
According to Florida
Highway Patrol reports,
50-year-old Melvin Funes
of Miami was headed
west on S.R. 70 pulling an
empty flatbed trailer at
10:20 a.m. when, for
some reason, a 2000
Toyota van entered his
lane.
The two vehicles ,col-
lided head-on. The semi
ended up on top of the
van and both vehicles
caught fire. Funes was
able to escape with minor
injuries, but the two peo-
ple in the van were both
dead at the scene.



Man charged

with stealing

tax return
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING A man
was arrested Tuesday
when investigators dis-
covered he stole a friend's
tax refund.
William Clarke, 25, of
Sebring, allegedly helped
a 21-year-old woman with
her tax return, but instead
of putting down her bank
account for the direct-
deposit he wrote in his
own.
She reportedly gave
Clarke the information to
do the return online,
including her W-2, Social
Security number, check-
ing account and bank
routing number.
After Clarke told her
the transaction didn't go
though,
he reap-
plied but
changed
the direct
deposit
account
number to
Clarke his own
SunTrust
account, along with her
password that would have
allowed her to view the
return, the arrest report
said.
On Feb. 13 the victim
was supposed to receive
more than $1,500 but
instead the money was
deposited into Clarke's
account, the report stated.
Clarke was charged
with computer fraud, a
second-degree felony, and
fraud by using another
person's identification
without their consent, a
third-degree felony.
He was released on
,$6,000 bond.

the May 15 edition of the Ask

Associated Press reported
erroneously that the U.S.-run
Palmer Station on the
Antarctic Peninsula operates

relies on transportation links
in New Zealand. Palmer
Station's transportation links
are with Punta Arenas, Chile,
and the station operates on

which provides support serv-
ices to the station.

Sparks fly at AP city council and CIA meetings

Council members unhappy with way budget

was presented and Memorial Field issue


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK No sooner
had the city council, sitting as
the Community
,Redevelopment Agency,
began its Tuesday night meet-
ing, than City Manager Sarah
Adelt, came under sharp
attack for what two council
members called confusing
bookkeeping.
The criticism carried over
into the council's special
meeting, which took place
immediately following the
CRA. Adelt was accused by a
council member of asking the
council to decide an issue she
should have decided herself.
First, Deputy Mayor
Brenda Gray, her voice raised
and- filled with anger, took


exception to city staff's
record keeping.
"I'm displeased with the
management of this budget,"
she said, reading from the
information packet distributed
to council members before the
meeting and referring to the
CRA's Southside advisory
board's balance sheets, pre-
pared by city staff.
She added that the use of
lump sums, instead of specific
line-by-line amounts, would
fail any audit.
Confusion concerning
exactly how much money had
already been spent from the
Southside account, the num-
ber and amounts of fiscal year
2008-09 remaining obliga-
tions, and how much money
would be left over, led to


Gray's remarks.
Council member Joe
Wright echoed Gray's criti-
cism. "I have to agree with
Brenda," he said, adding the
"rounded off" bookkeeping
was confusing and potentially
misleading.
Wright pointed out at one
point that an amount listed as
$60,000 in the budget the
amount the city owed for a
matching grant used to
upgrade Aline McWhite Park
- was actually $64,389.
Reached Wednesday morn-
ing, Adelt said there had been
a mix-up in the packet, which
she did not have in front of
her during the meeting.
"When I researched (the
situation)," she said, "I found
the council had been given

SFCC students help restore,

By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK Students
at South Florida Community
College's Career Academy
showed their concern for the
environment on Thursday
morning as they_ took time
out to replant the habitat
along the shores of Lake
Glenada.
"We are doing our part to
restore the native vegetation
and the habitat," Erica Felix
said.
Despite the light rain and
cool conditions, Felix and
about a dozen other students
planted bull rushes, red
maples, cord grass, love
grass, loblollies, and facka-
hatchee, a type of long lake
grass.-
"When the lake comes
back up, these grasses will


provide cover for the small
fish, frogs, and tadpoles,"
said Corine Burgess, a natu-
ral resources specialist, with
the Highlands County Soil
and Water Conservation
District.
"This is a great chance to
get the students out into the
environment and get their
hands dirty. There is just
something neat about plant-
ing, and it looks like they are
enjoying it," Burgess added
as she watched several stu-
dents laugh and joke while
planting cord grass.
"I don't want to be seen as
a hero. I'm just doing my
job," Damian Roberts, one of
the students in Chet Maxcy's
environmental services class.
"This is fun, and we are

County struggles with

development rezoning


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING -
Commissioners voted to
move forward with a two
rezoning projects aimed at
development, but not with-
out some micro-manage-
ment from Chairperson
Barbara Stewart.
"Can we tag conditions
to .the property next to it?"
Stewart asked County
Attorney Ross MacBeth
about a 9.9-acre site east of
U.S. 27 and north of
Fortune Boulevard near
Woody's RV Park.
Warehouse America Inc.,
listed as, the applicant, asked
commissioners to change
the zoning from agricultural
(AU) to industrial (1-1).
Warehouse America also
owns the a larger parcel to
the south of the requested
area which has old groves
located on it.
"We have not tried to
micro-manage development
projects like this," MacBeth
replied.
Although there is no proj-
ect on the table for the
industrial site yet, County
Planner Don Hanna
explained to the commis-
sion that it has excellent
potential to attract a busi-
ness and should help to cre-
ate jobs because it has a rail-
road spur line, city water
and sewer, and is close to
U.S. 27.
Co-owner Jere Creed said
during the meeting that a
bottling company, a roofing


company, and a trucking
distribution company have
approached him about
development, but the cur-
rent zoning prohibits those
businesses.
The commission agreed
to re-zone the area, giving
Creed the go-ahead. In
return, Creed agreed to
remove dead grove trees to
assist in wildfire prevention.
Commissioners also
approved a 98-townhouse
project in'the DeSoto City
area.
This time two county
commissioners tried unsuc-
cessfully to stop the rezon-
ing of 9.9 acres off County
Road 17 from a low- to a
high-density residential dis-
trict.
In a 3-2 vote, the rezon-
ing. allows the owner to
develop 98 townhouses.
Commissioners Jeff
Carlson and Stewart said
they opposed the rezoning
because there were no
details available on the
planned development.
"Not having any influ-
ence on what is built there,
we might regret it later,"
Carlson said.
Stewart also voted
against the rezoning, stress-
ing a desire for more county
control over development.
"To me, it's just totally
inappropriate for the area,"
she said.,
'"This could be a shot in
the arm for DeSoto City,"
Commissioner Guy Maxcy-
asserted.

Storm damages mobile home park in AP


Photo by Ryan Haynie


The damage was apparent, but
not too extensive, after a
severe thunderstorm rolled
through Reflections on Silver
Lake in Avon Park Wednesday
afternoon. Several mobile
. homes were affected, but.most
of the damage was to attached
structures rather than the
homes themselves. A tree limb
damaged a car parked at the
office and the winds also bent
the flagpole. A call to the
National Weather Service to
find out if the damage was
from a small tornado or just
high winds was not returned
by press time.


AP waits to make budget decisions


Continued from page 1A
She added those figures did
not include grant revenues or
expenses. They are strictly
operating and debt payments.
On the other hand, Green
said, one reason the city was
on target with its general
funds budget is because of
salary savings in the police
department, which still has
three patrol officer positions
open as of March, and
because the fire chief position
has not been filled.
"The city is going to hire
two police officers," she
wrote, "so the under budget
amount will not be the same
for the rest of the year."
Of concern, she added,
were revenues closer to home.
Property taxes and fire
assessment fees became delin-
quent after April 1, and by the
end of April the city was still
owed $197,316 in property
taxes and $132,132- in fire
assessment fees. Income from
impact fees is down as well.
"Overall," she wrote, "with
the current budget amount we
are approx. $263,448 less
than predicted at the time."
That is in addition to the
shortfall from state revenues.
Code enforcement fines
also are in arrears, Green said.
In September 2008 there were
over $75,000 in uncollected
fines. Only $6,186 in fees
have been collected since
October 2008.


Water and sewer revenues
also are down, approximately
12 percent off the original
budget.
These revenue shortfalls
are a major reason' Adelt
wanted the council to wait
until June.
For years now, the city has
been undercharging for water
and sewer services. Typically
they provide revenue to a
municipality. The council has
already ordered changes in
policy in that regard, and
work is under way to create a
new water. rate. structure and
more efficient fe,e collections.
Adelt asked the council for
ideas on how to better save or
collect money.
George Hall suggested
doing away with the
Community Redevelopment
Agency, saying it would put
$278,000 into the general city
fund. He also suggested-
reducing the code enforce-
ment office by two full-time
positions, adding he was,
"excited to see the police
department writing code
enforcement violations."
He pointed out that with the
small number of fines collect-
ed versus the amount of fines
owed, he wasn't sure if code
enforcement was worth its
expense.
In the discussion of water
rates, the council was told
water use remained the same
as before water restrictions
went into effect.


Council criticizes Adelt


Continued from page 2A
said, is specific.
Adelt also came under-fire
from Gray for putting a
request to rent Memorial
Field on the council's agenda.
"You should have decided
this," Gray said, again with
energy. "You want us to make
this decision for you, but
that's what we hired you for."
At issue was a request from
an organization out of Tampa
to hold a Haitian Flag Day
Celebration Saturday after-
noon and evening.
Wednesday, Adelt said she
had said no to the group, but
anticipated a request from the
organizers to appeal her deci-
sion. She had been told some-
one would come to address
the city council for that pur-
pose.
As it was, no-event organiz-
ers were present Tuesday
night, and the council made it
clear that such a last-minute
request leaving only about
two weeks to put things' in
place, guarantee liability
insurance, arrange for security
and clean-up and so forth -
meant the event would have
been a disaster waiting to hap-
pen.
The fact that organizers had
posted fliers advertising the


event before even approach-
ing the city for permission
didn't sit well with the coun-
cil either.
Adelt went on to say, how-
ever, that she felt she had
acted appropriately in putting
the request on the council's
agenda for another, more
important reason.
"The council sets policy,"
she said. "City staff and me
implement it. Setting policy
includes setting rates for the
rental of city property. No
rates have been set for
Memorial Field. I didn't know
what the council would
want."
She pointed out that with
the Government in the
Sunshine laws, she could not
consult with council members
on the issue outside of a meet-
ing. "It's the only time we can
talk together," she said, "so,
yes, I thought it the best place
for a discussion and getting
direction."
Both Mayor Sharon
Schuler and Council member
Al Joe Hinson spoke to the
need for guidelines and an
established policy regarding
events on.city property in the
future. There was no further
discussion of the issue
Tuesday night.


Hall wondered how this
was possible, especially as
revenue was down that 12
percent.
Adelt reported that about
10 fire hydrants are, "in
severe need of replacement
and (created) a huge loss of
water everyday."
The council agreed to wait
until the end of June for
action, in order that changes
could be developed for
example, new. ordinances to
shorten the time before shut-
ting off service for water cus-
tomers who do not pay their
bills, or making property
owners (not renters) the cus-
tomers of record regarding
water service, making it easi-
er for the city to apply liens
and collect what is due.

Book tells unique love story


Continued from page 1A
Luke was attending col-
lege and had no thoughts of
having a relationship.'
Instead, he spent his time
studying at Crown College
of the Bible in Knoxville,
Tenn. He had girlfriends,
but knew that he had to
keep God at the center of
the relationship.
"According to the
world's standard, if one
relationship doesn't work
out, then dump that person
and try again with the next
attractive one. Then after
you have tried several
prospects, you choose who
is best and marry your
favorite pick," he writes.
As he studied the
Biblical guidelines on rela-
tionships, he began to feel
sorry for those who "were
playing the 'leap frog'
game, going from one bro-
ken relationship to anoth-
er."
It was after Luke's col-
lege graduation in the sum-
mer of 2005 when he once
again met up with Jamie.
Unbeknownst to her, he had
gotten her cell phone num-
ber and initiated contact.
This time, the two began
e-mailing back and forth -
sometimes it would be two
weeks between messages.
. Jamie had already decided
to follow Luke's lead so if
there were two weeks
between e-mails, she would
wait two weeks before


replying. E-mails, phone
calls and notes were
exchanged. They would see
each other at church func-
tions or at events where
they helped spread the
Word.
Jamie was convinced she
would some day marry the
man who talked to every-
one about Jesus. Luke was
beginning to have feelings
about Jamie, but was care-
ful to guard himself. He
talked with his father and
with Jamie's father, admit-
ting his feelings for the
young girl were growing in
a respectfully romantic
nature. He asked Jamie's
dad if he could begin a
courtship.
Together, Jamie and Luke
laid down some ground
rules for their courtship.
Luke would drop hints
about his feelings for Jamie
through Scripture, but he
didn't come right out'and
tell her how he felt.
Wherever the two went,
they were with a crowd or
had a chaperone escort
them. Rarely were they
alone.
It was during a canoe trip
in March 2006 that Luke
drew a heart in the sand,
looked up at Jamie and said
"I love you." She was sur-
prised and was even more
surprised when Luke bent
down on one knee and
asked her to marry him.
Until their wedding in
July, the two would often


write X's and O's on each
other's hands, explaining it
was their way of putting a
kiss or hug on layaway
until their wedding. It
would be, they said, their.
gifts to each other for
Christmas in July, or their
wedding day.
"To exchange the gift of
purity at the marriage altar
is priceless. We have a
solid foundation for a
strong marriage," Luke
said.
Together, the two urge
boys and girls to treat each
other with respect. Luke
shares that message as a
substitute driver for a
school bus. The kids, he
said, seem interested in his
story. "They appreciate
being challenged, knowing
that there are options," he
said.
They stress the impor-
tance of being friends with
everyone, but being careful
who one gives their affec-
tion to.
"Dating is a relationship
without a commitment.
Courtship is entering into a
relationship that is going
somewhere," Luke said.
"Everybody's love story is
different. What kind of love
story does God have for
you?"

Layaway" is available for

Flags planted at Avon Park cemetery


Continued from page 1A
Christie served in the U.S. Army, and did
not mind the increasing rain as he respect-.
fully planted his armload of flags.
"I never count 'em," Christie commented
when asked how many flags were put out
each year, "but I suspect there are over 200
here (at Bougainvillea)."
"We have done this every year since day
one, and will .keep on doing it," he added,
referring to his post.


About seven ROTC cadets were visible
in pairs, one in fatigues and one in full
dress uniform, traveling up and 'down the
rows of headstones, stopping with respect
at each grave marked with service emblems
or descriptions.
"We are taking a moment to honor and to
remember," Cadet Major Cody Kendrick
said between salutes.
"This is a time of reflection, and honor,"
said Cadet Sergeant Major Alexis .

The flag-draped coffin
Offers a lesson
Editor:
All Americans should be given this
lesson and I am personally proud to
learn it myself. Those who think that
America is an arrogant nation should
really reconsider that thought. Our
founding fathers used God's Word and
teachings to establish our great nation
and I think it's high time Americans get
- re-educated about this nation's history. I
hope you take the time to read and
understand the meaning of the flag-
-draped coffin and the folded flag that is
later given to the widows and widowers.
The flag folding ceremony represents
the same religiousprinciples on which
our great country Was founded. The
Armed Forces of. the United States
lower the flag:ev ry evening and fold'
the flag in a triangle as a tribute to our
honored dead'. In the morning it is raised
aloft again as a symbol of our belief in
the resurrection of the body.
The flag is folded 13 times to form a
triangle. Each of the 13 folds has a-
meaning which it as follows:
The firqt fold of the flag is a symbol
of life. "
The second fold is, a symbol of the
belief in eternal life.
The third fold is made in honor and
remembrance-of the veteran departing
our ranks and who gave a portion of
thpir life in defense of our country to
attain peace throughout the world.
'The fourth fold represents the weaker
nature, for as American citizens trusting
iq God. it is to him we turn in times of
peace as well as in time of war for His
divine guidance.
The fifth fold is a tribute to the coun-
try, for in the words of Stephen Decatur,
"Our country, in dealing with other
countries, nmay she always be right; but
it is still our country, right or wrong."
.The sixth fold is for where people's
hearts lie. It is with their heart that they
pledge allegiance to the flag of the
United States of America of their repub-
lihc.
The seventh fold is a tribute to our
Armed Forces, for it is through the
Armed Forces that we protect our coun-
try and our flag against all enemies,
whether they be found within or without
the boundaries of our republic.
The eighth fold is a tribute to the one
who entered into the valley of the shad-
ow of death, that we might see the light
bf day and to honor our mother, for
whom it flies on Mother's'\
Day.
The ninth fold is a tribute to woman-
hood, for it has been through their faith,
love, loyalty and devotion that charac-
ters of the nien and women who have
made this country great have been mold-
ed.
The 10th fold is a tribute to the father,
for he, too, has given his sons and
daughters for the defense of their coun-
try since they were first born.
The 11 th fold represents the lower
portion of the seal of King David and
King Solomon and glorifies in the
Hebrew eyes, the God of Abraham,


Isaac and Jacob.
The 12th fold represents an emblem
of eternity and glorifies, in the
Christians' eyes, God the Father, the
Son and Holy Spirit.
The 13th fold, or when the flag is
completely folded, the stars are upper-
most reminding them of their, nation's
motto, "In God We Trust."
After the flag is completely folded
and tucked in, it takes on the appearance
of a cocked hat, ever reminding us of
the soldiers who served under General
George Washington and the Sailors and
Marines who served under'Captair-JIohn
Paul Jones, Who when followed by their
comrades ard shipmates ini the Armed
Forces of the United States, preserving
for them the rights, privileges and free-
doms they enjoy today.
*'There are some traditions and way of
doing things that have deep meaning. In
the future, you will see flags folded and
now you will know why.

Number of hate groups is
not growing
Editor:
I had to look to see if the News-Sun
and the Highlands Today were owned by
the same newspaper chain. It didn't look
like it but you can never tell except for.
both of you printing the same editorial
quoted from the Orlando paper. It does
sound like that the news of the day is
decided upon by some nameless people
and that is what all use.
I disagree that there is an increase in
the number of hate groups. Anyone who
disagrees with Obama and voices it is
called a racist. His fellow travelers trash
anyone who dares mess with them.
Some of us don't want to see babies that
happen to be alive during an abortion
murdered. That is the law standard, if
the baby has taken its first breath and it
is killed, then it is murder..Some of us
want our military respected, our money
to be worth something, our rights in the
constitution and our national day of
prayer respected. I see our country over-
run by illegals and the president and his
party pandering to them hopefully to
gain votes and a way to cheat U.S. citi-
zens of our say in our government. They
discount the billions it takes to keep
them here and ignore the millions more
of their relatives that will be eligible to
join them here and go on Social
Security. I don't understand black citi-
zens approving of a president who is
making it harder for them to find work
and devaluing their money.
It looks like a duck, sounds like a
duck, it probably is a duck. Obama
sounds and acts like a mix of socialist
and communist with strong Muslim
beliefs. He is trying mightily to get rid.
of talk radio and the freedom of the
Internet so we can't learn about him afid
the hidden background stories of what
he is really up to. Obviously, we can't
trust our newspapers to be objective.
Thank God we have an election com-
ing up that will hopefully turn Congress
around. They are already making sounds


like people who know they're in trouble
running for office. My biggest worry is
Acorn; the Obama brown shirt commit-
tee paid billions of dollars by him to
cheat in his name (again) making false
voter registrations. He is even trying to
put them in charge of the census. Obama
is well in command of every possible
way to cheat and lie his way to his main
goal which seems to be the destruction
of the U.S. freedom and economy so
that we are "fair" and match the rest of
the world in their poverty and one-world
government.
Yes, \ou may call me a terrorist and a
hate group. I hate what he is doing to
our country. No, blaming the past presi-
dent who did ,not do a good job at some
things doesn't excuse him. By the way,
Obama has just named an unqualified
person to run the Forestry Service.
Strange isn't it how% no one goes to jail,
it is no one's fault, they are all blame-
less and helpless. I'll do my part to stop
the destruction of our country and I
know others are out there trying too.

be more specific in his ques-
tions to witnesses.
The investigative report
alone is seven pages long, he
said, not to mention thou-
sands of copies of docu-
ments that are evidence in
,the case.
Prosecutor Robert Bunn
out of Bartow said recent
information has been uncov-
ered by his office and they
needed more time to prepare
as well.
"We can't comment on
what (the information) is,"
said Wayne Durden, who
spoke on behalf of the State
Attorney's Office. "What I
can say is we have received
additional information and
it's under review, but I can't
discuss any more specifics."
Both sides agreed to meet


again July 9 for another pre-
trial conference.
Making his first pretrial
appearance .was Dustin
Germaine, 28, son of recent-
ly elected Clerk of Courts for
Highlands County Bob
Germaine.
Dustin Germaine faces
charges of manufacturing
methamphetamine, posses-

and possession of drug para-

According to arrest

his Feb. 26 arrest witnesses
saw Germaine "cooking
methamphetamine" in the

father.
Germaine waived his right
to ,a speedy trial and will
have his next appearance on

Major League dad,


Minor League son E


Special to the News-Sun
Dee Gordon, formerly
Devaris Strange, the son of
Arizona Diamondbacks
pitcher, Tom "Flash" Gordon
was recently named the
Midwest League Player of
the Week.
Playing with the, Los
Angeles Dodgers A ball affil-
iate in Midland, Mich., the
Great Lakes Loons, Dee is
currently 8th in the Midwest
League in batting.
He is currently batting
.327 with 27 stolen bases, 30
runs, 5 doubles, 5 triples, and
14 runs batted in 37 games
thus far with the Loons for
the 2009 season.
The common links
between the father-son tan-
dem extend beyond the fact
that both are former Avon
Park Red Devils and are now
in the professional ranks
As Dee ,Strange was being
born:in April of 1988, Tom
Gordon was beginning the
1988 season in which he later
became the "Baseball
America MinQr League
Player of the Year."
The Player of the week
award was earned by the
younger Gordon. twenty-one
years later, exactly twelve
days after his 21st birthday.
Tom "Flash" Gordon won
his first World Series with the
Philadelphia Phillies in 2008.
In 2007, during his fresh-
man year of college, Dee
Gordon was named NCCAA
11 National Championship
Most Valuable Player, as he
hit .371 with 45. stolen bases

Former Avon Park Red
Devil Dee Gordon earned
PlayLer of the Week honors
May 4 for his play with the
Great Lakes Loons of the
Midwest League, the Class
A affiliate of the Los
Angeles Dodgers.

to lead the Lakeland
Southeastern University Fire
to a National Championship.
In the June 2008 Major
League Baseball First-Year
Player Draft, Dee Gordon
was selected out of Seminole
Community College,
Sanford, by the Los Angeles
Dodgers in the fourth round
(127th overall).
In his rookie season, with
the rookie ball affiliate of the
Los Angeles Dodgers, the
Ogden Raptors, Dee batted'
.331 with 18 stolen bases, 45
runs, 13 doubles, and 27
runs batted in.
With both Gordon's in the
National 'League and Dee
making his mark in the
minors, there might just be a
father-son match-up at the
major league level in the
near future.


Another year



is over


It may sound odd, or that
I'm about five months late in
saying good-bye to last year
- but remember, in my job,
I'm going on an academic
calendar.
The sports calendar is a
year-round one, coursing
through time virtually non-
stop; ,
But for the teams I cover,
another year has come to an
end.
Looking back, there were
disappointments, thrilling
moments and pleasant sur-
prises.
While they came out on
the short end during the
overtime football loss at
Hardee. Sebring mounted an
amazing fourth-quarter
comeback that man) won't
soon forget.
And Sebring will return
plenty of talent from that
high-powered offense.
Lake Placid and Avonri
Park football had tougher
seasons under first year
coaches Jason Holden and
Andy Bonjokian, respective-
ly, but each comes back this
year with new hopes and

optimism as they head into a
new district.
Sebring and Lake Placid
volleyball each had their
usual strong season, with the
Lady Dragons winning yet
another district title and
first-year coaches Stephanie
>,Devlin and Shannon Fassler
look to have the A% on Park
and Heartland Christian pro-
grams on the rise.

LOOKING BACK

15YEARS AGO
May 21, 1994: Seven Highlands County athletes brought home seven medals from the State Special
Olympics held at Florida State University. Stephanie Mack, Darrell Hill, Greg. Sutton, Gerald Bass,
Charlene Gordon, Ray Wooden and Tammy Furman all qualified through the County Games held at
Firemen's Field and the Area Games in Sarasota. Mack, Bass, Sutton and Hill competed in the 4X100-
meter relay and held a significant lead before a baton-pass mishap dropped them to sixth in the tight
competition. But they were picked up as Hill won gold in the softball throw and bronze in the 100-meter
dash. Wooden won gold in the 100 and earned a fourth-place ribbon in the softball throw. Sutton won
another gold in the softball throw and a fifth-place ribbon in the 100 while Mack took silver in the 100
and bronze in the throw, Furman won silver in the 100 and fourth in the throw and Bass was fourth in
the throw and fifth in the 100.

Summer is my New Year's Eve


Continued from 1B
state playoffs, the Lady Red
Devils making a strong
push with a talent-laden
team and Lake Placid and
Avon Parks boys showing
plenty of talent that just
needs to be brought togeth-
er.
As with volleyball, the
Lady Green Dragons of the
soccer pitch had yet another
strong season as John
Merlot took over the reigns
from Liz Sotille and kept it
running in high gear.
Sebring soccer saw the
boys and girls having solid
seasons but the girls'took a
big hit when Amanda
Grimaldo went down with a
knee injury, though it was
Lisa Przychocki's return
from a knee injury the year
before that helped keep the
Lady Streaks competitive
through the district tourna-
ment.
The Grimaldo injury also


hurt the Lady Blue Streak
softball team, and served as
an ominous forewarning
when both Sammie Lower
and Nikki Helms were lost
in mid-season to the same
injury.
Even so, first-year coach
Joe Sinness held the team
together as the rest of the
girls earned a spot in the
state playoffs.
The Blue Streak baseball
team reached the state play-
offs as well, upsetting
Bartow in the first round in
a season where even reach-
ing the district champi-
onship game might not
have been predicted.
The Green Dragon base-
ball squad reached the .500
mark and showed plenty of
potential in putting together
a strong finish under head
coach Dan Coomes.
A load of first-year
coaches started their


tenures at county schools
but one of the mainstays
decided to hang them up
with the retirement of Mort
Jackson from the Avon Park
baseball helm.
In all, a year with many
memories as it blurred by.
A fond farewell and good
luck to all the graduating
seniors I had the chance to
cover, take pictures of and
write about.
And now comes a sum-
mer-long new year's eve of
covering, taking pictures of
and writing about the next
generation of Highlands
County high school athletes
on the Dixie diamonds.
And then, sometime in
mid-August, a new year
begins.

"How To Pounc4

DATELINE: Highlands County
This might be the best time in a decade to
'replace an old, inefficient, air conditioner.
Some experts have predicted that the cost of
electricity will skyrocket. And since residential
aier conditioning is one of the biggest users of
electricity, the new Stimulus Package contains
a substantial incentive for upgrading your old
air conditioner to a new high efficiency model.
How do I know this? Because last year the
incentive was $500 and now the government
has TRIPLED the maximum potential tax credit
for installing certain high efficiency A/C units.
One more thing. Next year (2010) a new law will
make most existing air conditioners effectively
-obsolete! This is a law banning the
manufacturing of air conditioners using the
refrigerant R-22. When that happens, I predict
that the cost of this refrigerant will also
skyrocket, which means your old air
conditioner could become very expensive to
repair.

To my sisters and broth-
ers in Christ:
This week's subject
comes from several scrip-
tures in the Bible about
Heaven and Hell. Both are
real.
Hell is a subject very
rarely spoke on, but it's
real and it's your choice as
to whether you go there or
to Heaven.
First I will speak about
Heaven, a place where we
all should have the desire
to go.
(Eph.l:31 and 1 Peter
2:11) We all say we want to
see God. Heaven is where
God is. All spiritual bless-
ings in heavenly places
means all good things in
God gives of salvation, the
gift of the spirit, power to
do God's will, the hope of
living forever with Christ.
Because we have an inti-
mate relationship with
Christ, we can enjoy these
blessings now.
'As believers, we are
strangers and pilgrims in
this world, our real home is
heaven. Heaven is not the
pink clouds popular in car-
toons. Heaven is where
God dwells.-It operates
according to God's princi-
ples and values and it is
eternal and unshakable.
S (Mark 10:31) Someday,
after iGod judges-amid -
destroys all sins, the king-
dom of Heaven will rule
every corner, of the earth.
In the world to come, the
values of this world will be
reversed. Those who seek
status and importance here
will have none in heaven.
Those who are humble here
will be great in heaven.
So far this should be
enough to convince us,
heaven is where we want to
be. Let's go a little further.


The Bottom
Line
DeCaris T Jones Sr.

(Matthew 22:29) The
Sadducees asked Jesus
what marriage would be
like in heaven. Jesus said it
was more important to
understand God's power
than know what heaven will
be like. An idea of eternal
life tends to be based upon
images and experiences of
present life. Jesus answered
that these faulty ideas are
caused by an ignorance of
God's word. We must not
make up our own ideas
about eternity and heaven
by thinking of it and God in
human terms. We should
concentrate more on our
relationship with God than
about what heaven will
look like.
(Mark 12:25-27) Jesus'
statement here doesn't
mean that people won't rec-
ognize their partners in the
coming kingdom. It simply
means that God's new order
will not be an extension of
this life and the same phys-
ical and natural rules won't
apply.
(John 14:1-3) Jesus'
words show the way to
eternal life, though unseen,
-..is certain._as assures as you
trust in Jesus. He has pre-
pared the way to eternal
life. The only issue that
may still be unsettled is our
willingness to believe.
Jesus said, "I go to pre-
pare a place, and I will
come again."
(Rev.4:1) Chapters 4 and
5 are a glimpse into
Christ's glory. Here we see
into the throne room of
heaven. God is on the
throne and orchestrating all


the events. The God of cre-
ation will carry out his
plans as Christ initiates the
final battle with the forces
of evil.
Now we move on to the
other choice, Hell.
(2 Thes.1:7-9) The ever-
lasting destruction from the
presence of the Lord is
Hell, the place of eternal
separation from God. In
hell people no longer have
any hope for salvation.
Those doomed to hell did-
n't want to know God and
refused to accept his offer
of salvation. They will be
allowed to stay away from
him forever.
(Jude 1:7) Many people
don't want to believe that
God sentences people to
hell for rejecting him, but
this is clearly taught in
scriptures. Sinners who
don't seek forgiveness from.
God will face eternal sepa-
ration from him.
(Rev.1:17-18) Our sins
have convicted and sen-
tenced us, but Jesus holds
the keys of hell and death.
He alone can free us from
sins control. Believers
don't have to fear hell or
death because Christ holds
the keys to both. All we
must do is turn from our sin
and turn to him in faith.
When we attempt to control
_our life and disregard God,
we set a course that leads
directly to hell. But when
we place our lives in
Christ's hand, he restores
us now and resurrects us
later to an eternal, peaceful
relationship with him.
"Heaven or Hell? You
choose." And that's The
Bottom Line.
