E ven the good Lord wAnted to get the class of 2009 off to the
right start, helping with sunny skies Friday evening and again
on Saturday after weeks of rainy weather.
The hundreds of graduates from Highlands County's three
public high schools reveled in the moment, waving to family, hugging
friends, and grinning from ear to ear when not bursting into tears.
True to a moment of major transition, the graduates were handed
pearls of wisdom they were too excited to take in at the moment.
The truth is, no one knows what the future holds for these graduates,.
Some will,be successful, some will go to prison, some will retire happy
and some will die young. There is a season for everything under the


None of this mattered this weekend, however, when for a brief,
wonderful moment all was right with the world, and the community
celebrated a job well done by its young.

clear Highlands County

With so much data being
released, neutral, bad or

trict employee to see the sil-
ver lining.
"Four of six in elementary
improved over the prior
year," said Becky Fleck,
assistant superintendent of
curriculum and instruction.'
"And middle (schools), out
of six groupsin three grade
levels at the district, we
improved in three of those
areas."
Fleck is talking about the
increasing percentage of stu-
dents who scored at or above
grade level in math and sci-
ence.
All students in grades three
through 10 take a math and
science test, and she said this
increased percentage of their
proficiency is a good thing.

single-vehicle crash on U.S. 98


'News-Sun photos by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Just before 1 p.m. a van headed east on U. S. 98, about a mile from the junction with U.S.
27, left the road and crashed into a tree in the yard of 13009 U. S. 98. The driver, a
woman, was pronounced dead on the scene. Two children were transported to local hospi-
tals, their condition and names were unknown as of press time. It appeared the driver lost
control of the van as it rounded the bend. The vehicle came to rest in the yard. of the house
facing north. An Aeromed helicopter arrived on the scene at 1:26 p.m. and U.S. 98 was
closed to traffic for over half an hour. Check www.newssun.com or Wednesday's News-Sun

Fundraiser to help

local team in Breast

Cancer 3-Day Walk


Walk is set to

start Oct. 30
in Tampa
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun .com
SEBRING Sebring
resident Lauran Gaines lost
a sister to breast cancer in
2000.
Since then, one of her
daughters was interested in-
participating in one. of the
annual Breast Cancer 3-
Day walks where partic-
ipants walk 20 miles a day,
sleeping in tents along the
way, all to raise money for
breast cancer research.
This year's walk in
Tampa is from Oct. 30 to
Nov.l.
"You always say you're
going to do it but when I
was diagnosed (my daugh-
ter) said she was going to
do it even if she was by her-
self," Gaines said.
Since then Gaines joined
her daughter, as did friends,
Marcia Percy and Diane
Camacho.
WIth a total of 60 miles
to walk and only a three-
day period to do it in, the,
women are already training
for.the event..
"Every day they tell you
how .many miles you should
be walking, when to cross
train, what shoes you
should wear," Gaines said.
"It's not just something you
do; it's 20 miles. a day
you're walking."
Percy occasionally runs
in local races, but she
knows the 60 miles will be
difficult even with the
- proper training.
"I can endure three days


of blisters and pain -
that's nothing compared to
what those cancer survivors
go through," she said.
The group has already
been successful in raising
part of the money to partic-
ipate, but they need to raise
$2,300 per person for the
walk, and are thinking,
about adding another team
member if they can raise
enough money.
Even % ith only four peo-.
pie, that comes out to:
$9,200.
The group, aptly named
"Jump Up For the Ta Tas,"
are holding a fundraiser this
Saturday at the Sebring Sun.
'N Lake community center.".
The event, called-
Highlands Goes Bunco For,
Breast Cancer, will be a;,
$25-per-person bunco-
game. ,
"To do an event, people:
get something, a lunch, fun:
prizes, instead of straight:
up asking for money,"
Percy said. "I hate: doing:
that."
Percy met Gaines while
working at Fred. Wild:
Elementary school almost
20 years ago, and for the:
past 17 years the women'.
have played bunco with a,
group of friends.
"What's so cool about it,.
is you have 12. ladies, three"
tables of four, and you're,"
moving around, chit-chat--
ting with different people,"'
Percy said.'
"Bunco is a mindless.
game. Some women are
intimidated, they don't-
know how to play, but I tell
them it's a game of'chance,t
like playing bingo."

What limits are there to
greed?
Editor: .
1 recently opened my Progress
Energy bill and I am very upset.
They have proposed new basic elec-:
tric rates to the Public Service
Commission (PSC). They propose
an increase of over 30 percent What
limits are there to greed?
Unemployment in Highlands
County is high. Homes are lost to
foreclosure. My IRA and 401K are
worth less than half of what they
were at the start of 2008. Families
are'struggling to make ends meet.,
Retired folks are seeing their nest
eggs shrivel. All this and Progress
Energy %\ant to increase my bill by
nearly one-third?
Progress Energy wants to collect
even more money for depreciation
when they have already over-col-
lected by more than $700 million.
They will not pay it back and want
even more.
Currently Progress Energy has a
return on investment of 9.76 per-
cent. What return do you get on a
CD? They want even mori.
Did you get a 30 percent raise
recently?
Progress Energy has the ability to
"pass through" increased costs for
fuel and they do.
Do you have a spare $15 per
month to pay Progress Energy.
We have an opportunity to let the
Public Service Commission know
how we feel. There is a public hear-
ing in Lake Wales on July 7 at 6
p.m. You can speak. It is not only
your right, it is your responsibility
to speak up. You may also access
the PSC Web site or write to the
PSC.
Don't be a victim of greed. Let
your voice be heard. This increase is
neither needed nor fair.

Young people need to
learn there are rules
Editor:
As a former Skate Park attendant,
I would like to respond to the story
in the May 8 paper about the Skate
Park fee being dropped.
(A woman) said her son doesn't
stay depending on who the attendant,
is. Her son should not have been at
the Skate Park in the first place
because he did not have a proper
photo I.D. On more than one occa-
sion when I started my shift at the


TODAY'S
park, (the woman's son.would be
there skating. I would ask if he had
an I.D. and he would say no. I
would tell him that he could not
skate and he would start cussing out
the city. police and me.
,Using bad language is another
violation of park rules. When told to
stop using words like that or I
would call the police, he would cuss
more and say "he didn't care who I
called." It is very hard to communi-
cate with a child who has no man-
ners or respect for an adult.
Our young people need to learn
that there are rules in life that need
to be followed. Some parents of
children need to learn that also.
I hope that the new rules work
and all the skaters are safe and have
a wonderful time.

Highlands County is a
generous community
Editor:
On behalf of the Sebring High
School administration, coaching
staff and every athlete, I would like
to express my sincere appreciation
to the community, Sebring Firemen,
golfers and Highlands Ridge golfing
staff who participated on May 16 in
the 27th annual Blue Streak Golf
Classic at Highlands Ridge North
Golf Course. In these tough eco-
nomic times, the community and
local businesses were extremely
generous in the support of this
fundraising event.
180 golfers participated in the one
day tournament. Thank you for your
participation, your purchase of raffle
tickets, and your patience on the
course.
A special thank you to Beef 0'
Brady's for supplying the food. The
athletic department wishes to extend
our gratitude to the 29 businesses
that were hole sponsors.
For a golf tournament to be suc-
cessful, door prizes, raffle items,
and goodie bag items are essential.
The local businesses responded with
an overwhelming amount of gen-
erosity, as 134 businesses donated
door prizes. Thank you so much. To
our flight sponsors: Taylor Oil,
Yanni's Prime Choice Restaurant,
Dee's Place, Olympic Restaurant,
Sunset Grill, Blue Crab, Paul's
Harborside your donation was
greatly appreciated. It is my hope
that by awarding flight winners with
gift certificates, it will generate
business back into the community.

Music in the Park another success
Editor;
We would like to thank the com-
munity, performance groups and
staff of Highlands Hammock State
Park who made our Music in the
Park series of seven concerts for the
2008-2009 season so successful.
Our citizen support organization
known as Friends of Highlands
Hammock State Park actively seeks
to improve our beautiful park and
improve enjoyment of its facilities
for the general public.
Back Porch Revival, the Roger
and Penny Decker Band, California
Toe Jam (twice), Rambling Rose
Band, Wirebeaters Band, and
Groovus played to supportive
crowds from Avon Park, Sebring,
Lake Placid and Wauchula through-
out the past concert series. Many of
our northern visitors took the oppor-
tunity to take in Music in the Park
concerts during their stay in our
community. All of these helped our
Friends of Highlands Hammock
State Park raise thousands of needed
dollars for park improvements.
Finally, we would like to thank or
corporate sponsor MidFlorida Credit
Union, who sponsored this year's
series. We look forward to another
outstanding year of entertainment
during our 2009-2010 season.

Life's not

fair; get

used to it

"It's not fair!"
How many times do we
hear this phrase or a variatiofi
of it? Kids say it all the time;
"It's not fair! Billy's mom lets
him play in traffic, why can't
I?" "It's not fair! It was one
traffic ticket and I'm ground-
ed?" Kids are very big on
things being fair "fair" as in
something good for them.
As we grow up, the words:
change, but the gist of it is "
still there. Sometimes, it is "
formed as a "why" question: Z
"Why did that person get a
raise and I didn't? I work
harder than they do!" "Why "
do good things happen to her-
all the time? I deserve it
more!"
This week gays in
California are saying it's
unfair they .can't marry who-c
ever they want. Never mind "
no one can that's why .
polygamy, underage marriage'
and marrying your sibling is '
all illegal. People who want to
do those things probably think
it's unfair, too.
A recent e-mMil from a
reader pointed out that the
library blocks access to sites
such as Facebook and Twitter.
He acknowledges that there
are good reasons for this, but,
that he is being treated like a,
minor or a criminal when he
is neither. You could say that
he is being treated unfairly.
(Speaking of unfair, I know
several of you have e-mailed
me in the past few weeks and
I haven't responded yet.
Forgive me, life has been
quite busy and I do intend to
answer you when I can actual-
ly type a reasoned response.
Thanks for being patient.)
, And let's be honest -
there's a lot about life we can
all agree on is unfair. Babies
dying is unfair. Innocent peo-
ple being the victims of vio-
lent crimes is unfair. Children
who are abused by their par-
ents is unfair.
Some people use this as a
reason to question God. In
their opinion, a loving God
would make sure that every-
thing in life was fair. The
good rewarded, the evil pun-
ished. The fact that bad things
happen to people who don't
appear to, deserve it indicates
to some that there is no such
thing as a loving God.
The question I'm pondering
as I type this is simple: Is it
possible for life to be fair to
everyone all the time?
The obvious answer is no.
This is not possible. Life is
not always fair, and all of us
have been treated unfairly at
one point of time or another.
In the case of my reader, of
course it isn't fair that he's
not permitted to access certain
websites at the library but it
is necessary because of those,
few who would take advan-
tage of anything less strin-
gent.
Men and women have this
thing called free will. They
make choices. Some choices
mean the innocent suffer.
This is unfair, but the price .
we pay for being able to
choose our own paths.
For the record, you can
read the Bible from Genesis
to Revelation and you will not
find a single passage where '
God promises life will be fair.
In fact, when you think about
it, Jesus dying on the cross for
our sins was a pretty unfair
thing to have happen. But
without it, there would be no
hope of redemption.


Being the victim of unfair-
ness doesn't feel pleasant.
Sometimes it makes no sense.
Sometimes it serves a greater
good.
But it happens to everyone.
Not much comfort, I know. At
least we have plenty of com-
pany.

characters existed in real life.


Will Hayes, Hollywood's
Ayatollah of censorship dur-
ing the golden age of movies,
plays a key part.-
Ludwig's script is snappy,
and fun at one point he
blends baseball with Romeo

woman's belongings strewn
about the house and began
: searching. When they got to
the master bedroom and
turned on the light in -the
closet, Starling said, they
found 22-year-old Martin
,Ibanez trying to hide..
The woman, who is 31, hit
SIbanez with a shovel head,
then called 911 While, her
cousin wrestled him into sub-
mission.
Starling said that deputies
on the scene reported .that
after Ibanez was handcuffed
and was being escorted to the
car he had "considerable dif-
ficulty standing and appeared
to be slipping in and out of
consciousness." He was
taken to Florida Hospital in
Lake Placid to be checked
out, and was unable to give a
"cognizant statement" to the


deputy due to-the trauma of
the evening.
He was released from the
hospital and booked into the
Highlands County Jail for
unarmed burglary of an occu-
pied dwelling. Ibanez had
just gotten out of jail on April
8 on a charge of first degree
arson of an occupied building
and has a lengthy arrest
record.
Starling said it's rare- for a
victim to come home while a
burglar is still inside, and he
doesn't recommend follow-
ing the same course of action
the woman and her cousin
took in that situation.
"It worked out, but that
wasn't the safest course of
action," he said Saturday.
"When she saw the bicycle,
she should have called us and
we could have gone inside
for her."


appropriately foul-winded,

Art Harriman adds a level
of poignancy to his creation
of Max Rheinhardt, who in
1934 had just escaped the
Nazis in Austria. In fact, "A
Midsummer Night Dream" is
th only movie he ever
filmed. After it, he left-
Hollywood and returned to
the theater. By the end of the
play, the audience will under-
stand why.

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.

Fifth graders moviftg from
elementary to middle school
didn't appear to have any
trouble adjusting, holding at
61 percent proficiency in
reading and falling only
slightly in math, from 56 per-
cent to 54.
No matter how the data is
used, the county is still
behind state averages in
every category but third
grade math where 80 per-
cent of the county's students
are testing at grade level
compared to 78 percent
across Florida.
Although this makes budg,
et cuts look like they are
already affecting the dis-
trict's performance, finding
hope in the data isn't hard
either.
Schools like -Sebring
Middle continued to test well
in all subjects and grades.
Even though the school
didn't make any huge gains,
which can be fleeting from
year to year, it held on to
strong scores and has the


highest percentage of stu-
dents testing at grade level.
"We're like the tortoise;
we are consistent," Principal
Sandi Whidden said. "We
consistently have good
results, but it's not any big
secretive thing, just good
teaching."
Compared to other middle
schools in the county, SMS
has the highest percentage of
students testing at grade level
in all grades and subjects but
sixth grade reading where
it's tied for first with Hill-
Gustat Middle and seventh
grade math, where it is still
above the state average.
The only category in which
the school fails to match the
state average, seventh grade
reading, it has the highest
score in the district and only
falls two points shy."
Whidden shared her phi-
losophy Friday afternoon,
and where she came up with
it.
The structure, tips and
techniqutes used by SMS
teachers were picked up at a
model schools conference
"Whidden and a few of her
teachers attended in 2004.
For example, the 2009
model schools conference
will showcase the nation's
highest-performing and rap-
idly improving schools,
instructional practices and
leadership approaches,
Whidden said the confer-


ence showed her staff how to
get "the most bang for your
buck instructionally."
Speakers at the 2004 con-
ference spoke about instruc-
tional strategies that yield the
greatest results.
"We have just gotten better
at them and we have been
adding more," Whidden said.
"We started small with just a
few and added more to our
repertoire."
It has paid off. Inaddition
to an "A" school grade since
2005, SMS has also put up
the most points towards that
grade every year. The points
are earned by various FCAT
statistics.
"We have a lot of things in
place to ensure students are
successful and we are doing
everything we can to help
them be successful,"
Whidden said. "But I have
the most amazing staff ...
they go the extra mile to help
out and do the best for the
kids."
Other schools with more
students testing above grade
level compared to the state
average are ', Avon
Elementary, Lake Placid
Elementary and Park
Elementary.

Devin Clarke was in mid-
season form on his kick
returns, planting here to
make a move that'would
twist this Bartow defender
in half as he broke free for
big yardage. Overall, howev-
er, the newly installed
offense could not sustain
enough to get on the board
as Bartow took the Spring
Classic game 17-0.

BARTOW Spring is all
about starting ane%\. and with
all things original time needs
to be spent in getting it down
pat.
Such was the case
Friday night as Ba
Sebring fell in it's
Spring Classic game at
Bartow, 17-0. S
"We've put in a ne\
offense." head coach
Jared Hamlin said.
".And it's an offense
that has a lot to do % iih tim-
ing. .The kids. hae been
working hard, but it takes
time to get that down. I saw
,some good things. we just
weren't able to sustain any-
thing offensively. which is-
understandable at this stage."
One of the posiitles on


ung by Yellow Jackets


display was the explosive-
ness, of kick returned and
receiver Devin Clarke who
consistently gave the Streaks
good enough field position to
work with.
But it was the big plays by
Bartow that hurt the
o Blue Streaks.
1 After a 42-yard
Yellow Jacket field,
ing goal got the scoring
started, Sebring start-
I ed driving down field
with a short, crisp
passing game more
of the good things Hamlin
had seen.
"We didn't have any film
on 'them, so we only knew,
what their basic package
was," Hamlin said of the
Bariow defense. "But they
mixed it up some and caught
us a little off guard at times."


Such as during that drive
when quarterback Matt
Grubb looked over the right-
middle and fired a pass, only
to have a sagging linebacker
step in an pick it off.
The Jackets then rushed it
effectively on the ensuing
drive to take a 10-0, lead at,
the 1:54 mark of the opening
period.
The Streaks then dodged a'
bullet %hen the punt to end
their next drive was blocked
and returned for .a touch-
down, olly to have it brought
back to the 20. on a penalty
from where the defense held.'I
But after an ensuing pos-
session, a good punt return
put Bartow in good field
position and Rod Smith burst'
through the right side and

paced 18-0 by Bagpwell
Lumber in the last game of
the regular season for 11-12
Dixie Youth at Durrah Martin
Field on Thursday night.
The four-inning win would
clinch :a 12-0 record for
Bag-cell. and a second unde-
fejted season for the
Bombers.
Long's starting pitcher
Matt Joln threw a hard
game, but gave up a lead-off
homer to Bagvell"s Josh

In addition to hi's lead-off

base stats, but was caught
trying to advance to third to

Bagwell's Tray Perry, over-
powered Long's batters,
striking out six and walking
just two, and was supported
by a solid defense who kept a
no hitter going.


News-Sun photo by ED BALDRIDGE
The Bagwell Lumber Bombers concluded the Avon Park Dixie Majors season with a 12-0
record to claim the city title.


Leon Gordon added to the
defensive effort when he
snagged a line drive late in
the game that looked to be a
gapper for sure, using his
quick reflexes to stall the
valiant last minute rally by
Long's.
Perry would also homer,
driving a line drive straight
out to center in the first pick-
ing up three RBI in the
process.
"My fastball was working
for me, and I felt good on the
mound," said the 12-year-old


Perry. :
Perry would go three-for-
four, and rack-up six RBI
before the game ended.
"The kids have played well
all year long," said Bagwell's
head coach Willie Perry. "I
am proud of their attitude,
and we have had an unbeliev-
able season against some
good competition."
"We really hit well this
whole year, and our pitching
has kept us out front. We
made some awesome plays
this season," he added.


Although the regular sea-
son has ended, the All-Star
Season starts with practice
this week as the Dixie 11-12
year olds look toward an
Ozone match-up in Lake
Placid on June 11.
The 9-10 age group heads
to Okeechobee on June 13
for tournament play, and 13-
14 age group goes to Sebring
on June.25.
Pitching machine districts
will be held in Avon Park

Pool Paradise takes


second
Continued from 1B
Josh Crouch, Alex Forde
and Connor Cook each sent
one over the fence as they
wasted little time in going for
the repeat.
Josh Crouch was a one-man
wrecking crew Thursday in
the team's 10-0 win over JWB
Logistics, Inc.
The 10-year old threw five
innings of no-hit ball while
sparking the Pool offense with
a three-run home run.
They then secured their
spot in the finals Friday with a
19-2 swamping of the
Firemen, who had beaten Elks
10-4 in'the lead-up game to the
semifinal contest.
The Finals then had


straight
Paradise and JWB squaring
off for the fifth time of the sea-
son, with JWB having to win
two for the title while the Pool
just needed one.
Aside from Thursday's lop-
sided win, the Paradise-JWB
matchup had been as even as
it could get during the regular
season, with each team going
1-1-1 against the other.
But once the tournament
got going, Pool Paradise got
on a roll and never looked
back.
The Dixie regular season
now completed for the young-
sters, the selected all-star
squads will now start to prac-
tice and prepare for the sum-
mer tournament season.

NATURAL GAS PRICES CONTINUE TO DROP
FOR LOCAL RESIDENCES AND BUSINESSES
For the fourth month in a row, Sebring Gas System, Inc. has
reduced the commodity cost of natural gas that will be passed
along to its customers in Sebring.
Effective with the bills rendered for gas usage in April 2009,
Sebring Gas customers will see a rate reduction for the commodity
cost of about 12% from the previous month.
Since the month of December 2008, the commodity of natural gas
has dropped over 39%. Sebring Gas makes no profit on the price of
the commodity and the reductions are passed straight to its cus-
tomers.
Jerry Melendy, General Manager of Sebring Gas System, Inc. says
that the reduction in the price of natural gas is due mostly to the
increase in inventories. Natural gas is an all American product,
coming from gas wells located in and around the Gulf of Mexico,
from Florida to Texas.
In addition to the lower natural gas prices to its customers,
Sebring Gas also offers cash incentives to all new and existing nat-
ural gas customers of Sebring Gas. The incentives are for the home-
owner to use more natural gas. The incentives are as follows:


RESIDENTIAL APPLIANCE REPLACEMENT
(REPLACE ELECTRIC WITH GAS)
Cash Allowance
Gas storage tank water heating... $525
Gas tankless water heating....... $525
Gas heating.................... $625
Gas cooking ................... $100
Gas clothes drying.............. $100


RESIDENTIAL APPLIANCE REPLACEMENT
(REPLACE OLD GAS WITH NEW GAS)
Cash Allowance
Gas storage tank water heating... $350
Gas tankless water heating....... $450
Gas heating.................... $625
Gas cooking ...................$100
Gas clothes drying. ............. $100


RESIDENTIAL NEW CONSTRUCTION
Cash Allowance
Gas storage tank water heating... $350
Gas tankless water heating....... $450
Gas heating..................... $350
Gas cooking ................... $100
Gas clothes drying............... $100
The cash incentives have been approved by the Florida Public
Service Commission. The commission realizes that the use of natural
gas is the best use of our natural resources in Florida. By the
increased use of natural gas, not only will customers save money on
their energy bills, but the need to construct additional power plants
will be lessened.
Sebring Gas is a natural gas utility located in Sebring, with around 40
miles of underground gas pipeline.

Streaks see what needs to


be done over summer


Continued from 1B
down the sideline for a 42-
yard score and a 17-0 lead.
"They hurt us with the big
plays," Hamlin said. "The
interception, the blocked
punt and a couple long runs.
We also had the ball inside
their 20, their 10 a few times
and couldn't come away with
a score. So just a couple little
things here and there, you're
looking at a different score."
The Sebring defense
picked it up in the second


half, holding the hosts score-
less and included a couple
big sacks and hurried passes
from defensive end Zack
Bullock.
The Streaks also forced
three fumbles on the night,
showing the defense has
opportunistic ability as well.
And while they couldn't
quite cross the goal line,
enough offensive weapons
return and have a summer to
hone in.


Running back Daniel
Burnett was held out of the
game with a shoulder injury
and a young offensive line
was getting its' feet wet.
"We're still real young,"
Hamlin said. "We were
young last year and we're
young again this year. We've
got four new faces on the
offensive line, so it will take
some time and a lot of work
over the summer, but we'll
be in good shape."

Continued from 1B
But, save for a couple of
solid connections, Mason's
two and one-third innings
proved predominantly suc-
cessful, as would the nights
enjoyed by Avon Park's
Kyle Jackson and Sebring's
Cody Higgins in the East-
West contest later Friday.
"He got two pitches up
and those two got hit," Lake
Placid head coach Dan
Coomes observed.
That aided in the two runs
Mason surrendered in the
five-run sixth the South put
on the board of their 11-3
win.
Mason would give up
another in the seventh,
though it was his still jumpy
nerves more than the oppos-
ing bats solving him.
A hit-by-pitch and a walk
were followed by an out to
advance the runners and a
sacrifice fly to score the run
before Mason got out of it
on a grounder to first.
He then worked a score-
less eighth to finish up his
effort in strong fashion.
"It was a little intimidat-
ing at first, there are a lot of
great hitters," Mason said.
"But I calmed down and got
through it. It was just an
awesome experience."
In the later contest Friday
night, the East moved to the
winner's game Saturday
with a 7-5 win over the West
squad.'
The two from Highlands
County in that contest,
Jackson and Higgins, were
in the mix with players from
all over the state during the
evening game.
Although both Higgins
and Jackson have commit-
ted to play at South Florida
Community College, both
put on a good performance
for a very supportive local
crowd and scouts from col-
leges as well as the Major
Leagues.
Jackson, who missed his
graduation ceremonies to
play, was presented his high
school diploma at home
plate after the fifth inning.
"Baseball is my life, I
would rather be out here
tonight," said Kyle Jackson.
The new graduate made
the most of it, going two-
for-three with one RBI
while getting on base three
times.
Higgins, who. graduated
Saturday but might be late
for the ceremony over on
.the football field as he was
busy on the baseball field,
went one-for-two, made to
first twice and got the privi-
lege of being batted in with
Jackson's RBI.
"Cody and I have been
friends for a long time, and
it is great to be able to play
on the same team. I look
forward to playing with him
at college," Jackson said.

Blue Streak Cody Higgins rounds third and heads for
home to score on a Kyle Jackson hit as the Highlands
County representatives in the FACA All-Star Classic shone
through in helping their teams' efforts.


"I hope I can get on in
front of Kyle more while at
college, he can really knock
one," Higgins said after the
game.
Although faced with the
top players from around the
state, neither Jackson nor
Higgins were intimated by
the level f play.
"I am comfortable play-
ing at this level. I seem to
play better when I have to
play against tougher compe-
tition," Jackson said.
Higgins also felt confi-
dent playing with the cream
of the high school baseball
crop.
"There is some great tal-
ent at this level, and they
say that you actually play up
to the level of competition
out there, and it is true," he
said. "I felt good out there
because you are playing


with the best of the best, and
everyone is there to have
some fun."
"The practices and play
have been fun, so far, and
the competition is not as
important as just doing your
best," Jackson added.
The All-Star competition
wrapped up Saturday after-
noon with the North squad
facing the West in the con-
solation game and the East
doing battle with the.South
for tournament bragging
rights.
The players will move on
with their respective
careers, seeing how far they
can take them.
But for a long weekend,
they all came together for
one last time as prep ath-
letes to enjoy some All-Star
moments on the proving
grounds of Firemen's Field.

Congratulations to all partic-

All of the stories were


interesting and many were
very creative and well done.
The first and second place
winners were only three
points apart.
Chet Maxcy, instructor
for the Environmental
Science classes, along with


Erin and Corine were
delighted that the students
not only utilized their cre-
ative skills, but learned so
much about the species they
chose.
Many thanks to Subway,
Pizza Hut, Game Stop and
The Sports Fan for furnish-
ing prizes for the winners.
We, at HSWCD, have
truly enjoyed the opportunity
to work with these students.
It is qur sincere hope that
they not only enjoyed the
experience, but have learned
to appreciate their natural
environment. We also
learned a lot from the stu-
dents and hope to do it again
next year. After all, these
young adults are the future
and it is our hope that they
will treat the earth well and
that their children will learn
good habits from them.

Gemini should lend a supportive hand


Page 11B


I U-'-%me I*am~


Aries (March 21-April 20) With
some room for negotiation you can actu-
ally see something you want come with-
in reach, Aries. Quick thinking is your
key to success on Monday.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) -
Romantic endeavors will have to be put
on hold for the time being, Taurus. You
have bigger fish to fry this week, espe-
cially in the work department.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) Kind
words go a long way to helping some-
one out, Gemini. This person can use as
much support as you're willing to offer.
Wednesday is a day to play catchup.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) Cancer,
tough times call for even tougher meas-
ures. Expect that you will seriously be
put to the test in the next few weeks. A
shining example is made.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Don't let
others take advantage of your benevo-
lent nature, Leo. The tides can quickly
turn if you require them to do so. Make
the most of a meeting this week. It is a
big one.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) Virgo, you
can't trust someone who is close to you


HOROSCOPE1


and that is very frustrating You, and you
alone must work out the situation. Think
hard about what is best.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You know
your strengths and weaknesses, Libra,
and now it's time to put your strengths
to the test. Work assignments seem
overwhelming this week, but you'll pull
through.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Lately it
seems you're being hit with the one-two
punch of bad news, Scorpio. Do the only
thing you can: Pick yourself up and dust
yourself off.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Big
changes are in store if you keep your
eyes on the horizon, Sagittarius. Lady
Luck just may make a visit to you in the
next few days. You can certainly use it.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) -
Capricorn, too much information can be


a bad thing for you this week. You may
want to tune out for a while and just
enjoy spending some time inside of your
head.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) You
will be called upon to provide emotion-
al support to someone who needs it,
Aquarius. You have to be a rock that this
person can lean on. It will be rewarding
for you, also.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Pisces, a
little sunshine can brighten your mood.
A trip somewhere warm and sunny, or
even a day in the yard, can work won-
ders.

Plan now for great fall gardens


The rainy season is here
- a relief after the dry
months. June tends to be a
quiet, some say boring,
month for gardening -
especially vegetable gar-
dening. There are, however,
a few vegetables that thrive
in our hot'summers. The
most often grown are okra
and black-eyed peas.
One important vegetable
gardening task is soil solar-
ization and that should be
started right now. Soil
solarization is a great way
to eliminate weed seeds and
to discourage root-knot
nematodes by heating the
soil to 130 degrees for a
period of at least six weeks.
In our part of the state you
can easily provide that heat
in June and July. Four sim-
ple steps are needed.
1. Remove vegetation
2. Break up and wet the
soil to activate the nema-
todes
3. Cover the ground
with sturdy clear plastic
4. Weight the edges with
mulch or rocks

In six to eight weeks
your soil will be weed and
nematode free. Heavy
application of organic soil
amendments also helps to
discourage nematodes.

No-till gardening
And,, speaking of organic
soil amendments, you may
want to plan now for a no-
till garden in the fall. A no-
till garden combines veg-
etable gardening with com-

posting in place. The
method was introduced by
Ruth Stout in the 1950s.
She called it no-dig, no-
work gardening.
Maybe less-work garden-
ing is more accurate.
When you are building a
no-till garden, you are actu-
ally building a low and
long compost pile. So use
your composting knowl-
edge in building the garden.
A compost pile or no-till
garden requires four ele-
ments for the earthworms
and friendly organisms to
do their composting busi-
ness. They are air, water,
nitrogen and carbon. A no-
till garden is a slow com-
post pile with plants grow-
ing in itt Here's how to do
it:
Choose your site a
place with six hours of sun-
light.
Start with large sticks or
chipped wood on the bot-
tom to provide air circula-
tion.
Water should be added to
each layer.
Alternate layers of green,
brown (high nitrogen, high
carbon) and water. .
No need to be real pre-
cise. Half and half is good.
The top layer should be a
weed block. Newspaper
weighted down with some
mulch blocks weeds very
effectively. Just cut holes in
the paper and plant your


tomatoes and peppers in the**
holes.
If you start now you will
be ready to plant in August
and September.
Here is a short list of
green and brown materials.
Green material (high in
nitrogen)
Grass clippings (fresh)
Livestock manure
Garden clippings (fresh)
Vegetable and fruit
scraps
Note: If any 6f these
materials are dry, then, they.
are brown carbon material.

Brown material (high in
carbon)
Newspapers
Uncoated junk mail
Cardboard (shipping
boxes, cereal boxes, etc)
Sticks
Chipped wood (avoid
walnut as is toxic to plants)'
Fall or dry leaves (avoid-'
walnut)
Straw or hay
Shredded paper
Dry paper products such-.,,
as paper towels
Egg shells
Coffee grounds (includ-
ing the filters)

Do not use
Meats
Dairy foods

pereth. Isaiah 53:5. "But he was wounded fort ;.
gressions. he was bruised tor our iniquities: fe,

perfect peace. 'ho.t mind is StaCed lnii thee: because he
trusteth in thee" I Corinthians ll-13, "There hath no
temptation taken you hut such as is common to man: but
God is faithful, who \\ill not suller \ou to be tempted

. Has Memorial
Day become just
another reason to
* have a barbecue and
shop at a sale? Are
we giving too little
thought to the cost
that brought us to
* the celebration?
Do we sometimes
picture our forefa-
others dressed in


. their unusual clothing and
funny wigs and forget they
were real men and not just a
painting or picture in a
book? Have we forgotten
that these men had families
that sacrificed and that they
* didn't simply come together
* with the idea for a new
nation and all amiably agree
to hreak away from the super


Power that ruled over them?
iders . It-took perseverance,
courage and fortitude. It
took zeal and an unwilling-
ness to give up in the face of
a super military strength and
a controlling monarch.
Instead of forgetting, let's
S "-- remember.
Memorial Day is about
* bringing to mind the fallen
* heroes of all the wars in
S which our nation has had a
* part ... as well as keeping in
* ~ memory our beloved sons,
* W o husbands and fathers as
* well as daughters, wives and
* - mothers who are placed in
harm's way today.
We can remember in tan-
*.* gible and intangible ways.
0* Though we sometimes
S may think that praying is
"the least we can do," it is
the first and foremost thing
we should do andcan do -
not only for those going, but
for the families left at home
to keep the home fires burn-
ing.
S- Let's pray for the children

who cannot under-
stand why Daddy or
Mommy has to be
somewhere far -
away and can't
come home. Let's
pray for the parent
at home who takes
Pause And on double duty for
onsier the household and
rearing of the chil-
Jan Merop dren.


Try praying God's Word
for them such as Ephesians
1: 16-18, NIV, and include
their names as you pray. For
example, "I have not stopped
giving thanks for you (insert
.name), remembering you in
my prayers. I keep asking
that the God of our Lord
Jesus Christ, the glorious
Father, may give you the
Spirit of wisdom and revela-
tion, so that you may know
him better. I pray also that
the eyes of your heart may
be enlightened in order that
you may know the hope to
which he has called you ..."
Imagine the power in that
prayer for the one who must
be decisive in strategy
and/or battle; and, for the
ones at home facing the
daily decisions of life?
When we remember in
prayer those serving and
their families, we also honor
those who paid the ultimate
price. Selah
