FCAT


scores

released

Most local
scores fall
below state
average
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.chrisr'@news.un.comi
SEBRING The remain-
der of. this years, FCAT
results were released
Thursday afternoon, which
will likely keep administra-
tors busy for the next week
trying to figure out how they
did.
Reading and math scores
were released for grades
three through 10, as well as
science scores for grades
five, eight and 11.
These scores make up a
large chunks of a school's
overall grade, but those
scores will not be released
until later this summer.
In a mixed bag for the dis-
trict, with some schools mak-,
ing improvements, science
scores were still well below
average.
Of the 16 schools tested,
only two scored above aver-
age on the. test Park
Elementary School, which
improved significantly in
both science and math across
the board, and Sebring
Middle School.
Compared to the three
other middle schools, SMS
did well taking the highest
scores in sixth and eighth
grade math, as well as eighth
grade reading.
In other grades they were
only points off, and the
school was above average in
all grades and subjects except
for sixth grade reading, scor-
ing 311. The state average
was 313.
Of the other middle
schools, Avon Park Middle
School didn't fare too well
compared to the state average
or other schools.
Even though the school's
sixth grade reading and math
scores improved, it wasn't
enough. They were below the

New Salvation Army


store ready for debut

The Salvation Army relies on donations, both monetary and material, so they can
continue to offer free services to the community.

Renovated Family Store is bigger,

brighter and better stocked


By CHRISTOPHER.
TUFFLEY.
christophertuffley@ndwssun.com
SEBRING After
months of waiting, the big
moment has finally arrived
The Salvation Army is
reopening its re-named,
re-conditioned and
expanded Family Store at
3135 Kenilworth Blvd. on
Wednesday. It closed for
renovations Feb. 1.
People will notice, the
difference the moment
they walk in the door. The
vast space, about 4,500
square feet, is not only
more than double the older
thrift store's size, it is well
lit bright, clean and
user friendly.
Not only that, the new
1,000-square-foot ware-
house and sorting space in
the back means every inch
of the store floor will be
filled with items for sale.
The renovated building
now has a loading dock on
the north wall where dona-
tions may be dropped off
without entering the store.
From clothing, to
linens, to kitchen utensils,
to knick knacks and furni-
ture, there will be a wide
variety of everything nec-
essary to keep a home run-

ning.
Of course, the variety
depends on donations.
Major Mary Holmes,
corps officer in charge of
the operation, beamed as
she showed visitors
around.,
"It was time," she said.
"The store used to be jam
packed and dark, and there
was no room to sort.
"Then in the 2004
storms, the roof on the
office side lifted off and
we got a little water dam-
age on this side.


"Now we have open
space, better lighting, and
lighter paint on the walls.
We're being more selec-
tive, putting only the nicer
things out. That's why
,we're calling it the Family
Store, instead of a thrift
store, which has a reputa-
tion for being dingy and
dusty."
The grand opening takes
place at 11 a.m.

weeks after being removed
from life support. She died
Wednesday morning at the
age of 22 months.
"It's a relief actually,"
Short said, referring to
Kaedyn's passing after so
much pain with no hope of a
positive change. "It is still so
fresh. There is a lot of anger
and unanswered questions."

Power

plant buy

could be

messy

Dinner Lake plant
has environmental
issues to be fixed
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@ newssun.com
SEBRING The Sebring
council will hear a report on
Tuesday from City Attorney
Bob Swain which outlines
some of his concerns about
the purchase 6f the old Dinner
Lake power plant.
One of items Swain is ask-
ing the council to take into
consideration is the fact that
an environmental report dis-
closes the presence of riethyl-
ene chloride, which is used in
paint strippers and degreasers,
in "slight excess of the Soil
Cleanup Target Levels" set by
the Environmental Protection
agency.
Methylene chloride has
been linked to cancer of the
liver and lungs in laboratory
animals.
The city currently has a
contract to purchase the prop-
erty and asked the owners,
Miller Real Property
SHoldings, LLC, to update the
environmental study.
Currently appraised at
$167,000, Sebring could get a
bargain at the current $80,000
price tag, but not if they have
to spend thousands in clean-
up costs.
In a letter addressed to
Assistant City Administrator
Robert H. Hoffman from
Swaine, the report also
"shows the presence of
arsenic, chromium, and lead
in the groundwater that
exceeded the maximum con-
taminate levels under Florida
law."
City Administrator Scott
Noethlich sent a letter to Dale
Polston of Polston
Engineering Inc. asking for
his firm to "review the Phase
II Environmental Assessment
and to provide a written
report."
Noethlich went on to assert
that the city did not want to
buy a piece of property that
has "environmental issues."
More action on the pur-
chase will be on the agenda
for the June 2 meeting.

and almost 18 percent of
Florida's children under 18
live in poverty.
Eighteen percent of the
people served by food
pantries are elderly, often
having to choose between
housing and buying medicine
or food.
With the downturn in the
economy and so many jobs
being cut from the work-
force, the situation has only
gotten worse.
Major Mary Holmes of the
Salvation Army said she is
seeing "double the number of
families from this time last
year."
Last year, she added, the
ratio was roughly three to
one elderly to families, "this
year it's probably more fami-
lies than elderly."

HRMC has new tool to


help mend broken bones


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING The newest weapon in
the Heartland Regional Medical
Center's arsenal is the Taylor Spatial
Frame.
Already three patients have been fit-
ted with the external fixator in the past
few months to help heal their bones with
multiple fractures.
"It gives us an advantage," said Dr. A.
Robert Massam. "A treatment advan-
tage."
Massam recently traveled to Orlando
and Salt Lake City for training on the
device, which includes using an accom-
panying computer program.
On Wednesday morning the most
recent Taylor Spatial Frame was used on
a patient.
The 70-year-old woman had a com-
pound fracture of her femur after a car
accident and she was treated at another
hospital with the traditional method of
connecting rod and pins to keep the
bone in place to heal.
Unfortunately, the woman has osteo-
porosis and the pins were not holding.


She has been in a wheelchair for about
five months, Massam said.
After it is installed, the frame will
stay on, surrounding her leg, for
between six weeks and three months
while the bone heals.
The frame has adjustment points that
can be moved by the doctor or patient to
aid the healing process and make sure
the bone is aligned and properly heal-
ing.
Another new addition to HRMC is
called the "Bear Paw," which is used
before and after surgery.
The hospital has purchased 14 of the
devices, nine of which have been
installed in the hospital's Ambulatory
Care Unit. The others will travel around
the hospital to help prepare others for
surgery.
The devices pump warm air into a
special hospital gown that disperses it
all over a person's body to increase their
core temperature and cut the risk of sur-
gical site infections.
"It preps the body for better surgical
outcomes," said Mary Furguson, direc-
tor of surgical services.


Taylor Spatial Frame


Furguson has wanted to bring the
units to the hospital for a while.
The device has been around since
2004, so when a new gown design was
released earlier this month Furguson
jumped on it.
"This is technology at its best," she
said.
In post surgery surveys of patients the
most common complaint was that they
were cold, Furguson said.
With the Bear Paw the patient is in
control the device is easily accessible
and has a knob for adjustment.
"I can't even tell you what it means to
a patient," Furguson said.


Community rallies to raise $21,500 for SPD dog


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
Sebring Mayor George Hensley (from left), American Veterans Post 21 Commander Richard Gerken and Sebring Police
Chief Tom Dettman gather Thursday morning to acknowledge some of the 150 donors that helped raise more than
$21,000 for a new police K-9 during a brief ceremony outside of the Sebring Police Department. The AMVETS sponsored
a poker run in January and then the Second Annual Tom Berdelle Golf Scramble in April with a goal of raising $15,000
for the department's new dog. The AMVETS, along with many generous citizens and local businesses, raised $21,500.




Local food bank moves closer to fruition


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Highlands
County is a step closer to cre-
ating a food bank to serve the
food pantries operating here.
A food bank acts as a dis-
tribution center to area food
pantries and does not serve
consumers directly. Local
pantry staffs currently have
to travel to Tampa and the
Second Harvest food bank
located there.
That means a lot of time
and money have to be spent
keeping local shelves stocked
- time and money that could
be better spent directly serv-
ing with the public, say food
bank backers.
Current need is so great
many pantries are having to
make two trips a week just to
keep their shelves stocked.
An anonymous donor is
providing a building, located
behind the Lakeshore
Shopping Center at 217 U.S.
27 South, at very reduced
rates and organizers hope to
have the doors open by the
middle of July.
Mary Foy, acting director
of the Highlands County
department of Social
Services and one of the lead-
ers in the food bank move-
ment, told the Children's
Services Council Wednesday,
that, "You can talk a lot but
you have to show results."
Now that the project is
longer a matter of imagina-
tion, Foy hopes its reality
will help bring in both dona-
tions and offers to volunteer.
Forty percent of families
served by charitable feeding
programs have at least one
working member in the
household, she said.
Twenty-five percent of
people served are children,


The Heartland Realtors
Association is currently con-
ducting a survey of pantries
to determine Highlands
County's needs more exactly.
For more information, to
make a donation or volun-
teer, call 402-6626.


program, as has the
Heartland Realtors
Association. The Heartland
Workforce and the Avon Park
Youth Academy have offered
to provide volunteer workers.
The Heartland Food
-Reservoir the name of the
proposed food bank is
expected to be allied with
Second Harvest of America,
one of the largest organiza-
tions of its kind.
The food reservoir will
buy food through the Second
Harvest program at 14 cents
a .pound, and sell it to food
pantries for 18 cents a pound.
The mark-up of four cents is
used to pay utilities bills and
maintenance, the balance
goes into buying more food.
That way the food bank can
become self-perpetuating.
An initial investment, for
example; of $5,000 would
buy 35,714 pounds of food.

Sebring man busted for

producing pot, meth


News-Sun sfaff report
SEBRING A 24-year-
old Sebring man was arrest-
ed Wednesday after a search
of his Columbus Boulevard
home allegedly turned up
operations to manufacture
and sell both methampheta-
mine and marijuana.
According to a Highlands
County Sheriff's Office
report, William James
Vanscooter's was charged
with producing metham-
phetamine, producing mari-
juana and possession of nar-
cotic equipment.
Using a search
warrant, investiga-
tors reportedly found
a bag containing
numerous plastic
baggie corners
(pieces of plastic
bags used to trans- Vans
port and store drugs),
a homemade glass pipe that
contained traces of metham-
phetamine, a homemade
plastic plaster water bong, a
blue plastic baggie that con-
tained traces of metham-
phetamine, aluminum foil
with a baggie corner and
three syringes.
But it was in the back
yard where the really dam-
aging items were reportedly
located.
The report said that a
shed in the yard held numer-


ous marijuana plants inside
as well as growing outside
the building. One plant was
being grown hyrdoponically
inside a fish tank in the
shed.
Also inside the shed, the
report said, a Drug
Enforcement Agency
methamphetamine lab team
recovered numerous items
consistent with the manu-
facture of meth, including
fertilizer, lithium strips from
batteries, Coleman fuel, salt,
coffee filters, drain cleaner,
empty pseu-
doephedrine blister
packets, ammonium
nitrate, hydrogen
peroxide and sus-
pected sulfuric acid.
Three motion-
activated cameras
ooter were found on the
east side of the resi-
dence, the report said, and
two cameras on the north
end of the residence were
aimed in the direction of the
front door. Another camera
was pointed at the shed in
the backyard, the report
said, and all fed into a mon-
itor in Vanscooter's bed-
room.
Vanscooter, who has an
arrest record dating back to
2003, was released on
Wednesday after posting a
$7,500 bond.

Short said he wouldn't be
able to control himself if he
said apy more about Parker
and his granddaughter's
death.
Short is now driven to
make a difference.
A resident of Gainesville
and member of ABATE of
Florida Inc., he reached out
to his friends and brother
members here in Highlands
County in order to send out a
message that child abuse can-
not be tolerated.
The community responded
quickly and whole heartedly,
with the ABATE Innerstate
Chapter joining with the
Children's Services
Foundation to help raise
awareness about the. scourge
of child abuse.
A Poker Run is scheduled
for Saturday, June 20 to raise
money for a "Baby K" fund
to be administered by the
foundation. The primary pur-
pose of the fund will be to
educate the public and fight
child abuse.
Larry "LJ" Overfield, the
president of the Innerstate
Chapter of ABATE, said
donations and the fee for the'
bike run are tax deductible if
the check is written out to the
Children's Services
Foundation. One hundred
percent of the proceeds are
going to the special fund.
The cost for the run is $10
per person, or per hand. It
includes a meal.
The run begins with the
sign-up at 10 a.m. at The
Blue Crab Restaurant at 825
N. Ridgewood Dr. in Sebring.

Holmes said that people
are still making donations
of clothing, but she's
noticed a drop off in furni-
ture and other bigger ticket
items.
"People are holding onto
things instead of buying
new," she said, "or they try
to sell their things at
garage sales, rather than
donating."
Because the store has
been shut for almost five
months, she has no way of
knowing yet whether
demand has risen due to the
economy.
Holmes explained that
the money raised by the
store is used in The
Salvation Army's social

Keep Blue Streak
band tradition
Editor:
To all the SHS Sebring
Blue Streak Spirit of Sebring
Marching Band alumni, I
want to know if there is any-
one out there who remem-
bers the history of the band?
Do you remember Prof.
Gustat, his son Paul Gustat
or Mr. Fulton? Do you
remember the hard work
they put into the band? I do.
I have talked with some of
you and some of you who
have seen the band's new
uniforms and feel as heart-
broke as I. I need your help
and your support.
They have already bought
black pants; they are on their
'way to ordering black hats to
match the pants. They are
wanting to order black jack-
ets with one blue sleeve.
As a Blue Streak I thought
our colors were blue and
white. I was so happy when
my two sons decided to join
the band so that he could
wear the same uniform that I
and so many of their
cousins, aunts and uncles
have worn. I went into the
band room for orientation
and the first thing I noticed
was that all the old before-
1987 band pictures that hung
there for so long were totally
gone. No one seems to know
were they are. So I wonder if
they are trying to get rid of
all the traditional blue and
white? I asked why are we
ordering all black uniforms?
Here is the reason I was
told:
When you are marching,
marching mistakes show up
less.
Less dirt shows up,
because the kids kneel in the
dirt and grass. So the laun-
dry bill will be less.
First you have to be proud
to wear the uniform. It is a
privilege to be in the band.
You have to be taught to
march and play your instru-,
ment at the same time ...
Do they realize hot much
heat the black jackets, black
pants, black shoes and black
hats will absorb from the
sun? Do you realize how
many band students will be
passing out from heat
exhaustion?
We were taught how to
kneel gently on one knee. If
we ruined a uniform we
bought another to replace it.
You have to have respect for
the uniform and treat it like
it is the most precious thing
in the world, like your
instrument. They are expen-
sive and they have to last for
all those to come behind
you. ..
The "Spirit of Sebring" is
the thunder you here before
the Blue Streaks strike. The


thunder you hear in the
stands to get everyone in the
Blue 'Streak spirit. The play-
ers on the field, the cheer-
leaders and the band are all a
team. We are the Blue
Streaks!
I have had some of the
students in the band and my
own ask me if I could do
anything to keep the blue
and white. I know why it is
important to me, so I asked
them why it is important to
them. One said because my
brother was inthe band and
he wore the blue and white.
Yes we need to do fund
raisers to also raise money
for Laundry, gas for the
buses ainong other things. I
hope that we will get support
from the community for all
our sports. I do not want to
see the athletic sports cut: I
have two boys of my own in
baseball.
I know I will catch some
slack from this letter and so
will my children, but as a
Blue Streak I had to say
something. Can we order
blue jackets like the tradi-
tional uniforms? Let's not
get rid of it completely. I
A Blue Streak till I die.
Remember that chant?

Keep the sounding
board alive
Editor:
"I sell the morning paper
sir: My name is Jimmy


Brown."
Just as the song says, the
American morning paper is
part of Mom and Apple Pie,
it is the sounding board of
all Americans, it cannot be
allowed to financially cease
to exist, just as public radio
and TV. The editorial page
of every American newspa-
per is the most read part of
any newspaper worldwide.
It is news from the people
from every walk of life. No
nation can survive without
"all" the news.
As the late Paul Harvey
said: "Now here is the rest
of the story." I, as a kid, who
had not reached my teens,
sold newspapers, the
Portsmouth Times and the
Grit were the two I most
remembered. I think that
both still exist today. It
helped buy my school
clothes.
Many young men across
this nation can relate to sell-
ing newspapers. We, as
Americans, cannot allow 'this
sounding board to go by the
wayside.

Action shows real
man behind
presidency
Editor:
The "let's discuss abortion
with open hearts and minds,
and fair-minded words"
filled speech at Notre Dame
University was another


'empty worded' speech by a
great orator.
Did I miss the 'shout-out'
by Obama to talk with
Americans with open hearts,
minds, and fair-minded
words before he reversed the
'Mexico City Policy,' which
now allows American tax-
payers' money to flow into
international abortions
providers ?.
Our current Congress has
agreed to bring to the table a
bill, which is the twin-sister
of the Mexico City Policy
called 'Freedom of Choice
Act'. This bill would
enshrine abortion into feder-
al law. Parental notification
now upheld in 44 states, and
virtually all other restrictions
on abortion at the state level,
would be eliminated.
If FOCA passes, Congress
will then have no limits of
how much of taxpayers
money they can 'spend as
grants to support the abor-
tion business here in the
United States and abroad. It
has been estimated that as
many as 125,000 more
babies will be killed every
year under this one act.
Obama, while he was cam-
paigning promised to sign
the FOCA into law once it
was placed on his desk.
President Obama contin-
ues his assault on family val-
ues with the release of his
detailed 2010 budget propos-
als. Specifically, the budget
plan detours $164 million
for teaching abstinence, with

teaching 'anything goes'
sex-education programs to
young children. This 'any-
thing goes' program written
by Obama leads to more sex-
ual activity before our kids
are ready for it, more unex-
pected pregnancies and more
.,sexually transmitted dis-
eases.
Actions not words show
the real man behind the pres-
idency. By his actions our
president has already made
up his mind on genocide by
his deliberate and systemati-
cally funded programs of
abortion on the most unpro-
tected of human beings.
You still have time to call
your federal senators and
advise them on what to do
about FOCA and the budget
on sex education. With my
research I have found that
both Florida federal senators
always vote the party line no
matter how much pressure
they get from their con-
stituency. This is a big rea-
son to vote out the Democrat
and Republican parties, but
I'll save that information for
another opinion letter.
So pray and don't forget
to ask God to have mercy on
America.

"How To Pounce

this opportunity almost a 'no-brainer.' Reai

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
air 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.

named it the "Spring Thing."
This morale, welfare, and
recreation day was a collabo-
ration of events in which
companies of the battalion,
which included Sebring resi-
dent Michael Mossier, went
head-to-head in fierce com-
petition. The 991st
Transportation Company,
419th CSSB, 10th
Sustainment Brigade,
brought home the grand
prize, winning six of the 13
events.
The purpose of the event
was to give the soldiers the
opportunity to mingle with
soldiers from their sister
units. The one incentive that
really boosted everyone's
morale was the day off from
running missions.
The day started bright and
early at 7 a.m, with a 5K
'trot'. This event gave com-
pany commanders the oppor-
tunity to display their compa-
ny's physical fitness as they
accompanied their guidons
across the finish line.
"It gave me great honor to
represent my company along-
side my commander with
guidon in hand," stated Spc.
Salem Dimes; .native of
Orlando, when asked about
the fun run.
As the sun came out, so did
the spectators as the 991st
Trans. Co. took on the 419th

Headquarters Company in
the kickball championship
game. The game was close
and went to the wire but the
991st Trans. Co. managed to
keep the lead and bring home
the trophy.
"When I was asked to be
on the kickball team, I had
forgotten how fun the sport
was ... it brought back a lot
childhood memories," said

Of all of the competitive
events, the 991st Trans. Co.
placed first in kickball,
horseshoes, table tennis, vol-
leyball, the Humvee push,
and the chicken wing eating
contest. Approximately 100
soldiers took advantage of
the fun day and felt it was
well worth attending.

success in bringing the

DRINKING WATER WARNING
FOR CUSTOMERS SERVED BY:
SEBRING WATER & SEWER SYSTEM
DRINKING WATER PLANTS
The Sebring Water & Sewer System public drinking
water systems failed to perform monitoring for a suf-
ficient number of bacteriological distribution samples
during the month of April-2009, Rule 62-550.518,-
Florida Administrative Code, requires these water sys-'
tems to collect and provide laboratory
analyses results for at least 40 bacteriological distri-
bution samples for each month the water systems
provide water to the public. Department records indi-
cate that the above-referenced water systems only
collected and provide laboratory analyses results for a
total of 38 bacteriological distribution samples for the
month of April-2009.
HEALTH EFFECTS
We are required to monitor your drinking water for
specific contaminants on a regular basis. Results of a
regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not
your drinking water meets health standards. During
the month of April-2009, we did not perform bactedo-"
logical monitoring at a sufficient number of sample
sites, and therefore cannot be sure of the microbio-
logical quality of your drinking water during that time.
WHAT IS BEING DONE?
Although the above-referenced public drinking water
systems missed performing monitoring for two of
their bacteriological distribution sample sites during
the month of April-2009, on May 21, 209., the water-
systems did collect a bacteriological sample at each'
of the two sites that were missed in April The labora-
tory analyses results for the samples collected on
May 21, 2009, indicated the absence of coliform bac-
teria in the drinking water.
WHAT SHOULD CUSTOMERS DO?
Since the laboratory analyses results for the two
drinking water samples collected on May 21, 2009,
indicated the absence of coliform bacteria, at this
time, customers need not take any action or seek an
alternate water supply.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
For more information please contact Jay Angell at
863-471-5113 or contact the Department of Environ-
mental Protection's Potable Water compliance/en-
forcement Section at (239)332-6975.
Please share this information with all the other people
who during this water, especially those who may not
have received this notice directly (for example people
in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and busi-.
nesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a
public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

2009 FACA All-Star Classic


LIVING


Friday, May 29, 2009


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
The 31st Annual Florida
Athletic Coaches
Association All-Star
Baseball Classic gets
underway today :at -
Firemen's Field, with
teams representing the
North, South, East and
West squaring off.
Made up of the top sen-
ior talent .,from across the I
state, many prospective
choices "in the upcoming
Major League Baseball
amateur draft, college and
professional scouts will
have plenty to choose from
as the action gets under-
way.
This is, after all, a long-
standing event that has
seen many major league
all-stars take part.
It's a safe bet that any
current major league player
that hails from the state of
Florida has taken to the
Firemen's diamond some-
time in the last 17 years.
Even if not in Sebring, the
now late-May mecca of base-'
ball in the state, they've
taken a part in the event
itself, and likely in Highlands
County.
The event, after all, started
at Head Field in Avon Park in
its' first incarnation in 1980.
"There were just two teams
back then;" event organizer
Travis Rapp said. "My dad
(Gary Rapp) actually
coached the South team that
year."
From there, the FACA
relocated to West Palm Beach
from '81-81 before returning
to Avon Park from '84-'89,


where the likes of Thomas
Gordon got to join the festiv-
ities on his home field and
Gary Sheffield showed his
future promise.
Another change came
when the event moved to
Baseball City from 90-92, a
span that saw Chipper Jones
in action as a high school
senior.
But the following year, in
93, the All-Star Classic made
Sebring its' new home and
hasn't seen a change in loca-
tion since.
During it's time at the cor-
ner of Persimmon and
Oleander, scouts and fans
have seen Jeff DiAmico,


Lance Neikro, Jarrod
Saltalamacchia, Alex
Rodriguez and Prince
Fielder.
Not to mention those just
now ,making their way
through the minor leagues,
such as Michael Burgess and
Eric Hosmer,.who played just
last year/but was already
mentioned in this year's
Sport Illustrated baseball pre-
view issue saying of the
Kansas City Royals, "The
offense is still a bit deficient
(though big-time prospects
Mike Moustakas and Eric
Hosmer are on the way)."

And Another
Thing...
Daniel Hoehne

I'm on

bus

I am rapidly becoming
more and more of an
Orlando Magic fan.
Sure, living an hour
and a half away for a
couple years now, the
proximity plays a part -
but even 1,100 miles
away for two years, the
Bulls will always be my
top team to root for in
professional hoops.
Sure, I like a few of
their players how can
you not like Dwight
Howard and get a kick
out of Stand Van Gundy
and his semi-maniacal
ways.
But as a fan of the
underdog, growing up
rooting for the Cubs kind
of has that effect on you,
it is more that I can't
help but see the Magic
overcoming overwhelm-
ing underdog status in
this series with the
Cavaliers.
Not only are they tak-
ing on a 66-win team

SEBRING Their regular
season records and match-
ups couldn't have been more
similar.
Pool Paradise and JWB
Logistics, -Inc. finished their
season with identical records,
and 1-1-1 records against
each other, prompting a coin-
flip to decide which would
get top seed and first-round
bye in the Dixie Majors City
Tournament bracket.
"We won the coin toss,"
Pool .Paradise head. coach
Dean Frazier said. "We beat
them 9-0 the first time, they
beat us 10-8 the second time
and then we tied 8-8."
This was said once it was
pretty well established that
the two teams would be
meeting in Thursday's round
of the tourney as the Pool
boys had secured a 10-0 win
over the Firemen.
Seth Cannady and
Jonathan Struck had the big


blows in the win, each blast- driving in two with a double
ing solo home runs with and Conner Cook bringing
Cannady also adding another three in, including the final
run-scoring hit, Alex Forde two to decide the mercy-rule


win.

Lightning kills spring football


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@'newssun.comn
LAKE PLACID The
continued inclement weather
that Highlands County has
seen recently, which included
a lot of lightning, kept the
Lake Placid and Avon Park
football teams from finishing
what they started almost a
week ago.
Just a little over three min-
utes into their first face-off at
Roger Scarborough Stadium
Last, Thursday, the game was
first delayed and then called
Sfor lightning.
The scoreboard was stuck
at just under nine minutes
with seven points on the
board by Avon Park, but will
remain that way in the record
books as flashes in the sky
didn't even allow the contin-


'Well, at least we
know how to get
to Lake Placid
now.

Avon Park head coach

nation of the game to get
started.
"We are done," said Avon
Park head coach Andy
Bonjokian we asked if they
would reschedule the match-
up."l know the guys really
wanted to play, and it would
have been cool to finish this,
but we have to take their
safety into consideration.",
"Well, at least we know
'how to get to Lake Placid
now," Bonjokian joked about


having to face the Dragons
later in the season.
Running a Power-I
offense, Lake Placid's head
coach Jason said his Green
Dragons were hoping for
their chance behind the ball.
"We were looking forward
to this," said Holden. "This is
disappointing, but we were
ready. We have to wait for 30
minutes after each visible
lightening strike, and this is
just circling us. I don't think
we can reschedule because
we are in the middle of grad-
uation."
The match-up will have to
wait for the regular season
when the two teams meet at
Joe Franza Stadium in Avon
Park on Friday, Sept. 18 as
part of the new District 5-2B
schedule.

little had changed in the five days since the Thursday, May 21 spring football game had
gotten three minutes in before lightning halted the contest Tuesday, May 26, the same sce-
nario played out as not another second ticked off the clock before Avon Park and Lake

LOOKING BACK

10 YEARS AGO
May 28, 1999: Avon Park's MattTindell proved his worth among Florida's elite in the 21st Annual
FACA All-Star Classic at Firemen's Field.Though his East squad lost a 15-8 slugfest in the Friday night
contest,Tindell went two-for-two with a two-run triple, single and bases-loaded walk. In the East's 3-1
win Saturday,Tindell reached on a dropped third strike, stole a base and soon scored the second of three
runs,the team would get in a 3-1 win. He also pitched two innings of hitless relief to help secure the win.
25 YEARS AGO
May 30, 1984: South Florida Community College head baseball coach Clay Gooch added two Avon
Park state-champion Red Devils to his recruiting class. Infielder Bryan Arnold and pitcherTim Devlin
signed on to bring their winning resumes to the Panther squad.

Magic facing three foes


Continued from 1B
all-around player in the
game today, LeBron James,
but it seems the refs, and by
hypothetical, conspiratorial
extension, the league offices
are against them as well.
Out west; even the closest
'next Michael Jordan,' Kobe
Bryaht, is getting knocked
around and being on the
receiving end of some horri-
ble calls in what continues to
be a deplorably officiated
post-season.
Which is somewhat con-
fusing, since it seems the
league heads are anxious as
all get out to have a Los
Angeles-Cleveland Finals,
with the two most marketed,
familiar faces.
A Denver-Orlando match-
up for the title?
Only die-hard basketball
fans are going to really be
into that series and I guess
that includes me, because I
think that could be a very
entertaining series.
But by no means does the
league seem to want that, at
least the Orlando side of it.
I wrote about it earlier in
the series, the seemingly
unbalanced officiating as it
pertained to Mr. James.
But since then, it's only
gotten worse.
In a recent game, Magic
guard Courtney Lee was
driving for a lay-up only to
have LeBron make an
incredible play to get back
and block it.
Problem was, Lee was


laying it in.right next to the
basket, above the rim, so
that as soon as he released it,
it was within the cylinder.
By definition, it should
have been called a goaltend
- but it Wasn't.
Later, Lee found himself
on another fast break head-
ing toward the rim.
Not wanting another
block, he dunks it, as James
attempted swat misses.
But in the continuation,
the massive LeBron just
wipes out Lee, careening
him out of bounds but no
foul called.
The stars do get preferen-
tial treatment, generally.
But then explain why
Howard was saddled with
three fouls (one of them of
the-phantom variety) in the
first half, sending him to the
bench for a good, long
stretch?
Then there was the three-
point attempt by James that
Howard made his own spec-
tacular play on, soaring in
from behind to cleanly block
it, with nary a bit of person-
to-person contact.
But no, the whistle blew,
calling a foul on Howard and
giving 'Bron three free
throws in the late going that
-put the game into some rela-
tive doubt.
There have been more
dubious calls since, the latest
being toward the end of
game four when, as he was
driving the lane, James


stumbled and fell into a
Magic defender, and getting
a blocking call that resulted
in two free throws to send
the game to overtime.
While it's hard to chalk it
up to anything but the star
getting overly favorable
treatment and anything
beyond that being deemed a
conspiracy theory all the
little aspects to it make it
seem like it's not too far of a
leap.
Though, there is a recent
little spin the league just
announced that it reversed
one of the technical foul
calls on Howard.
The Magic center was one
tech away from receiving a
mandatory one-game suspen-
sion, and the reversal gives
him a little more breathing
room.
M'aybe as Orlando seems
on the verge of overcoming
the Cavs, refs and league all
ganging up on them, the
league has chosen to make
the best of it and protect
Howard now.
I'm writing this at noon
Thursday, which should
make Game 5 quite interest-
ing.
You'll know by the time
you read this if James got
one more game of protection
for one last gasp, or if the
tides had begun to turn.

Gehrig Blackman held JWB scoreless in the third, but the
relentless attack eventually got the better of the Rotary
squad in Wednesday's win of the Dixie Majors City
Tournament.

City tourney wraps

up this weekend


Continued from lB
Crouch toed the rubber to
keep the Firemen from
mounting any real threat.
"That's the tough part
about a tournament like this,"
Frazier said. "You need to
save your pitching as much
as you can, so when you have
a chance to end a game early,
you have to do that."
A similar scenario was
playing out on the other field
as JWB ended things early
with a 15-3 win over Rotary,
consistently putting runs on
the board in nearly every
inning.
Three came across in the
first, but Rotary answered
back with one to keep it close
early.
Four more scored in the
top of the second for a 7-1
lead, but a scoreless, top of
the third and two runs for
Rotary in the bottom of the
third made things a bit more
interesting.
Nick Stafferi and Crystal


Grimaldo, however, held
Rotary in check over the next
three innings and JWB added
single runs in the fourth and
fifth and then exploded for
six in the sixth to end it.
"We had a close one yes-
terday and had to have
Jordan Baker pitch two
innings," JWB head coach
Bobby Cannon said. "But we
didn't have to use him at all
tonight so he'll be ready
when we need him."
In Tuesday's tournament
openers, JWB had to work to
outlast ReMax in a 7-6 win
while Rotary had beaten the
Elks 10-3 to reach
Wednesday's games.
"Tomorrow's the key
game," Cannon said of the
Thursday match-up with
Pool Paradise. "Whoever
wins that will have to be
beaten twice. Whoever loses
tomorrow plays the early
game Friday and then, if they
win, turn right around and
play again."

Firemen fireballer Eli White held Pool Paradise in check in
the early going, save for a Seth Cannady solo home run.
But the Pool bats came alive late in the 10-0 win.


All-Star Classic sees top talent


Continued from 1B
"According to the scouts,
it's a good crop this year,"
Rapp said. "A lot of good
hitters and some real good
pitching as well."
The pitching almost goes
without saying, given that
Mitchell High School's
Patrick Schuster, who made
national news with four
straight no-hitters this year,
will be on hand.
The hitting has some
gaudy numbers coming in as
well.
Such as the .627 batting
average and 66 RBI in 31
games of Pendleton catcher-
outfielder John Ryan
Murphy, who will be on the


West team along with
Schuster.
Or the .735 on base per-
centage and 61 stolen bases
of Reggie Williams from
Brooks-DeBartolo, also on
the West squad.
Then there's the .500
average, 12 home runs and
60 RBI in 27 games from
Andrew Bartlett of Trinity
Catholic in Ocala for the
North team.
The talent will be on dis-
play, with scouts aplenty
getting a last look at them in
action before the June 9
draft.
And though the economy
is in tough times, that hasn't
deterred the numbers from


turning out.
"We've got 80+ players
coming in," Rapp said. "The
economy really hasn't
effected it too much, though
we have had some sponsors
drop out. But we've (the
Sebring Firemen) worked
with FACA for so long that
it all just comes together
very smoothly."
For spectators looking to
get a glimpse of future major
leaguers, a day-long ticket is
$10 for each of the two days
of games.
"We don't look to make
much'of a profit," Rapp said.
"We put up the players at the
Kenilworth Lodge for a cou-
ple days, so there is some


cost. Our goal is to just
break even and put on a
good show."
With the kind of talent
this annual event brings in, a
good show is kind of hard to
avoid.
The action gets underway
today when, after each team
gets a round of batting prac-
tice and fielding warm-ups,
the North and South squads
face off at 2:30 p.m.
The East and West teams
will then meet at 7:30 p.m.
with the losing teams meet-
ing Saturday at 11 a.m. and
the winning teams wrapping
up the weekend 30 minutes
after the first game ends.

The lesson of the two roses


A few months ago, my
wife and I had the opportu-
nity to speak to a home-
school group of teenagers
about purity and courtship.
We wanted to make it
interactive, yet still making
a point. So we bought two
beautiful pink roses at a
nearby florist. We set them
in separate vases and put
them on display for al to
see
We played "hot potato"
with one of the roses. With
all the teenagers in a circle,
my x\ ife began playing the
piano. The rose then began
its circuit. (I did remove its
thorns!) The music stopped,
then began once again. In a
short time, the stem broke
in half. Leaves were falling,
and soon petals were being
scattered everywhere. By
the time the last two partici-
pants'finished, there was not
much left of the rose to
adore. Its beauty was gone
and it components were
scattered. The other rose
however, remained securely
in its vase, retaining both its
beauty and value.
We gave the young lady
who had won the game the
option of taking either rose
as her prize. The choice was
obvious. A tale had been
told by the two roses.
We proceeded to explain
how each person has the
opportunity to be like one
of these roses in the area of
personal purity: The one had
been man-handled by many
people. Not much about it
remained desirable. It had
been used and abused. No
longer was there any use for
it, but to throw it away. The
second rose, however, had


been
protected
safely
within
the
bound-
aries of
its vase.
Timeless This
Treasures glass
home
Luke served
Knickerbocker not only
to hold it up, but to keep it
out of the hands of all the
others. It kept its purity and
innocence. It was precious
to the one who received it.
But it had to pay the price
of staying out of the "arms"
of everyone it met.
The application to this
tale is simple. Let us allow
each rose to symbolize two
different girls in a youth *
group. One was reckless and
ignored the warnings of her
parents and pastor. She
cared only about being pret-
ty and flirting with the boys.
She went out with whoever
gave her attention.
She soon found herself
being used by the boys who
said they loved her. She
would break up with one,
just to find herself gettiRg
into another relationship.
Then one day, her boyfriend
said that if she really loved
him, she Would let him hold
her hand. Before she knew,
it, she would hug him and
give away her first kiss, and
second. She would be his
girl, and let him do what he
wanted.
She was the "man-han-
dled" rose.
The other girl in the
youth group was quiet and
spent a lot of time with her


family and friends in the
youth group. She was
always reading her Bible,
going to church, and telling
people about her best friend
Jesus! But she didn't even
have a boyfriend ... how
could she even have a life!
She didn't go to dances
and let the boys get close
and personal. In fact, you
would never find her alone
with a boy. She was the
"pure rose."
One evening, when the
youth activity was over,
everyone started leaving the
church building. The "man-
handled" girl went over and
started teasing the "pure"
girl about being a virgin.
She told her that she would
never be able to find a hus-
band because she didn't
date. She was missing out
on a good time and was
stuck on old-fashioned
rules. The pure girl gently
smiled, looked the other girl
in the eye, and replied, "I
can become like you when-
ever I want. But you'll
never again be like me."
Now which of the two
girls do you suppose will be
desirable to marry? Which
of the two would you expect
to have a long and happy
marriage? Who will be hap-'
pier in the end without scars
and regrets?
Again the Bible has the
best advice when it says to
flee youthful lusts, and for
young men to treat the
younger women as sisters,
with all purity.

to perform at

Bethany Baptist
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Mitchum Brothers
will perform at Bethany Baptist Church
in Avon Park at 6 p.m. Monday, June 29.
The group began singing as an organ-
ized trio in 1980.
The original group consisted of broth-
ers David, Dean and Paul.
Over the years, other family members
joined the group and, during the late
'80s and early '90s, they were known as
The Mitchum Family.
In June 2000, "David, Paul and
nephew Trqy once again sang as The
Mitchiim Brothers. When Troy married
and moved from Central Florida in
2002, David and Paul joined with tenor
Junior Combs and changed the name to
The Coastalmen. Combs, left ,in
December 2003 and was replaced by
Tim Webster.
The new group released their first sin-
gle, "God Is," in late 2004 with DJ Man

Event marking Global Day of Prayer


planned Sunday on the Circle in Sebring


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING In support of
a worldwide prayer initiative,
a global prayer gathering has
been organized for downtown
Sebring on the Circle from 4-
5:30 p.m. Sunday with wor-
ship-praise-prayer in many
languages.
Across the globe, hundreds
of millions of Christians are
planning to meet together in
churches, stadiums, parks
and homes for the fourth
annual Global Day of Prayer
held on Pentecost Sunday.
This year, Sebring and
Highlands County will be
joining an anticipated 200
countries around the world
by hosting several prayer
events before, during and


after the Global Day of
Prayer.
This year marks the fifth
official Global Day of Prayer.
The movement started at the
turn of the millennium when
many Christians in Cape
Town, South Africa sensed a
calling to assemble in prayer
and to seek God. When the
invitation went out to the
people across their country to
assemble in united prayer for
their cities and nation, people
filled halls and stadiums of
every size. Year after year,
millions more sought God
together from almost every
stream or tradition of
Christian faith in every coun-
try of the African continent.
In 2005, the African


Christians invited the world
to join them and the result
was the first Global Day of
Prayer on Pentecost Sunday
in 2005, drawing an estimat-
ed 200 million people.
In 2006, 2007 and again in
2008 on Pentecost Sunday,
millions of Christians gath-
ered in almost every country
on earth. The movement con-
tinues to spread and'deepen
and this year on Sunday,
churches and Christians in
Highlands County will join
the movement by gathering
Downtown Sebring on the
Circle from 4-5:30 p.m. to
pray and repent with sincere
hearts and united hopes.
Those attending should bring
chairs as they gather in


around the flag pole.
In addition to the events
held on Pentecost Sunday,
there are also prayer vigils
being established for the 10
days prior to the event.
Pastors, churches and
Christians from every faith
tradition are being encour-
aged to participate in this
worldwide prayer gathering.
For more information on
these events, as well as to
find' out how a local
church/business/organization
can become more actively
involved, visit the Global
Web site, www.gdopusa.com,
or contact Pastor George
Ridenour at 381-3570.
