Family Business
For some, every day at work is a family reunion
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley� newssun.com
SEBRING - All children, at some point, have to make their own way and live their own dreams. For some that path carries on the family tradition.
Stanley Wells of Avon Park, John Griffin of Sebring, and Chuck Miller of Lake Placid are all fathers who work with at least some of their children.
Wells and his family are Florida natives. His daughter Sarah Jane Bryant has worked with him for 14 years at the family business," Wells Dodge Chrysler at 1600 U.S. 27 S.
Wells' uncle, Lawler Wells, opened an auto dealership on Main Street in 1931, with a gas station out front. He sold Dodge and Plymouths.
When Wells' father Edgar, known as "E. Ray," graduated high School in Lakeland, Lawler told him he had a job in Avon Park as long as he could get there. E. Ray walked the entire way. U.S. 27 was a dirt road at the time. � Ten years later, when Lawler was killed, Wells' dad took over the business.
Wells himself began working at the dealership early. By 12 he was sweeping, filling cars with gas, changing oil and working every summer,, along with his older brother Kenny.

Wells and his wife had two daughters. One moved to Orlando while the other, Sarah Jane Wells Bryant, remained close to home..
Wells didn't encourage Sarah to work for the company in the beginning, it is
a tough business he said.
Sarah got a business degree from South Florida Community College and worked for a local company.

Sebring eyes higher fire assessment
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com SEBRING - The Sebring � City Council reached a consensus to raise the fire assessment to 2 percent during a workshop last Tuesday after its regular meeting.
Although council raised the assessment slightly, the net results will be a lower ad valorem tax for the entire city.
At 2 percent, the assessments on fire coverage for commercial, industrial/warehouse and institutional facilities remain unchanged at one cent per square foot.
Although council cannot "officially" vote at a workshop, the 3-2 consensus will be passed on to the city meeting at a later date for more public hearings and a final decision.
During the meeting, City Administrator Scott Noethlich pointed out that raises the assessment for residential form $3 per square foot to $6 per square foot per year, but would be accompanied by a drop in the millage rate

Unemployment still on the rise
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun .com SEBRING.� More than one in 10 people living in Florida were out of work in May, according to a press release from Heartland Workforce.
That's the highest unemployment rate in 34 years.
Highlands County residents also saw an increase in unemployment, rising to 9.3 percent in May from the 8.9 percent rate in April.
The state's unemployment rate for May rose to 10.2 percent, up half a percentage point from April and 4.4 points higher than the year before.
May's statistics were the first double-digit unemployment rate in Florida since the recession of 1974-75, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics.
National media sources state that tight credit will cause the current recession to last longer because of how it will extend the real estate crash.
Loans are harder to come by and home sales suffer as a result.

Disaster preparedness training for small businesses planned
Strong storms whip winds, water into frenzy
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com SEBRING - When a disaster strikes, the local government, its citizens and businesses all need to be prepared.

The strong storms blew down several trees and power lines in the area and briefly sparked concern of an overturned boat in Lake Anoka in Avon Park that turned out to be a false alarm.

Sebring man attempts to buy
$2,700 lift kit online with
stolen credit card information
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com SEBRING - A former supervisor at the now-closed Circuit City in Sebring was arrested last week for allegedly trying to use stolen credit card information he obtained through his job.
Derrin Davis, 24, of Sebring, faces charges of theft of more than $300 but less than $5,000, credit card fraud, and using the ID of another person without their consent.
The incident happened in August 2008 when the victim filled out a contract with credit card information but accidentally left it at the store.
The arrest report indicated that the contract was for a DSL Internet connection, not for any merchandise through the defunct chain.
Later that night the victim realized they left the information behind. They tried to contact the store later that evening but it was closed, and when they called the next day an employee stated they had left it there but "they thought someone threw it away," the report stated.
Within a week the victim received a call from the credit card issuer to tell her about suspicious activity on hercard.
The transaction, through a site that specializes in lift kits for off-road vehicles, was not completed. The attempted charge was $2,779.49.
Inv6stigators with the Highlands County Sheriff's Office contacted a Circuit City manager who was able to provide a tape of that day. The tape showed an employee picking up the contract with the credit card information and handing it to the nearest supervisor, identified in the report as Davis.
"The surveillance video Shows Davis placing the contract inside a black binder where it remained through the duration of his shift," wrote Dep. Brennan Warner of the HCSO in the arrest report.
Warner continued in the report to note that Davis left Circuit City

Piece of Bombing Range history restored, back home
Target drone
rebuilt at Moody AFB in Georgia
By AIRMAN 1ST CLASS BRIGITTE BRANTLEY
Special to the News-Sun AVON PARK - A completed and refurbished target drone used for gunnery practice during the Cold War departed from Moody Air Force Base in Georgia on May 18 and headed back home to the Avon Park Air Force Range.
ARadioplane OC>19D (KD-2R3) Target Drone was restored to its original condition by more than 45 airmen from the 23rd Equipment Maintenance Squadron at Moody AFB, who contributed more than 725 hours on the project.
The restored drone was transported on a HC-130P/N and was accompanied by the 23rd Wing Commander Col. Kenneth E1. Todorov and four members of the 23rd EMS to Avon Park AF Range, a geographical separate unit of the 23rd Wing. On hand to receive the restored Drone was a group of Air Force veterans of World War II, Korean, the Cold War and Vietnam headed by the Avon Park AF Range commander, Lt. Col. Charles "Buck" MacLaughlin.
Two of these veterans were retired Air Force Col. Roy Whitton of Lake Placid, representing the Military Officers Association of America, and retired Capt. Louis Brough of Sebring, representing the Air Force . Association - the organizations that had been part of the driving force behind the success of the project to restore a part of the range history.
"This specific drone .was used for target practice for the B-52 and B-47 gunners during the Cold War at the Avon Park facility. This whole project began several years ago when a part of drone's rudder was found near the range facility," Brough said. "It had shot through the rudder and elevators and landed in a remote part of the range and not found until years later.
' "We located a salvage collector in Kentucky who had the body shell of a drone
'After more than 50 years, this drone has come full circle and we have brought it home.'
COL. KENNETH E. TODOROV
23rd Wing Commander
and he decided to donate it to us," Brough added. "We thought it would be wonderful if we could get one of the target drones restored and put on display here at the Avon Park Air Force Range."
With some planning and coordination, parts from the range as well as the body from Kentucky were then delivered to Moody, which in turn agreed to attempt to restore it to as close as possible to its original condition.
The restoration project was started in September 2008 and was completed in May 2009. As far as it is known, there are only four or five of this model left in the world.
"We had to. put this drone back together without a manual;" said Technical Sergeant Paul Bartels, 23rd . EMS aircraft structural maintainer, one of the group that accompanied the drone back to Avon Park. He said that the body was heavily corroded and they had tq essentially remanufacture it.
"Actually we had to do a lot of metal, paint and stencil work but it now looks almost brand new. Our biggest challenge was procuring the propeller and completing the Radio Flyer logo on the tail," Bartels said.
Airman 1st Class Timothy Miller, 23rd EMS aircraft
structural maintainer, who also was one of the four who traveled with the drone to Florida, had primarily worked on the body of the drone. He remarked that the entire drone body was really damaged and it was a lot of work to take out all of the dents and dings out of it.
"It took a lot of work, but it was exciting to work on it because of its history and how rare one is," Miller said.
All of the hard work that fwas put into the project paid off during the presentation when the Moody airmen were recognized for their efforts by Todorov.
"After more than 50 years, this drone has come full circle and we have brought it home," Todorov said. "I am overwhelmed at what this team has accomplished. They put a lot of work and effort and it is indicative of their initiative.

List of cost-saving ideas creating stir
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley� newssun.com
AVON PARK - City council members have been given a meaty agenda to chew on come Monday night's regular meeting.
Coming out of a memo Councilman George Hall e-mailed to City Manager Sarah Adelt, the council will have the opportunity to discuss 10 suggestions that Hall thinks might save the city money.
Hall pointed out the city is currently operating at a loss, and steps of some kind have to be taken.
The ideas are as follows:
1. Abolish the Community Redevelopment Agency and its advisory boards, and return money to the general fund.
2. Investigate the process and cost of disbanding the police department and bringing in the Highlands County Sheriff's Office.
3. Get out of recreation. Look into a summer recreation program run by a local faith-based organization, or local college apprentice program. Perhaps turn recreation buildings over to the Boys & Girls Club.
4. Turn over the city fire department to the county.
5. Turn over code enforcement to the police department immediately. If police consolidate with sheriff, have the county handle enforcement.
6. Advertise for and hire a public works director �
replace the consultant currently filling the position.
7. Change the pay status for the city's project manager to a percentage of the grants received.
8. Set up the airport into an airport authority and cut city budget ties. The airport manager would no longer be a city employee.
9. Sell Wellcraft/Classic Caladium property.
10. Look for a long-term tenant in the Community Center, or sell the property and return it to the tax roll.
In contacting Adelt, Hall asked for cost-benefit analysis, but he ended his memo writing, "I know that it would be senseless for staff to spend any time on most of these issues because there is not council support for many/any of them. If you would like to forward this to the council and see if they have ANY (sic) other ideas that would bring us in line and actually cut cost and lower taxes, I would enjoy the discussion."
Copies of the e-mail quickly began to circulate after Adelt passed them on to members of the city council in preparation of Monday night's regular meeting.
So far, the reaction has centered on j>ublic safety with the Southwest Florida Chapter of the Florida Police Benevolent Association already involved.

Editorial & Opinion
Today's Editorial
Get involved and help the city of AP move ahead
As you will have read in News-Sun staff writer Christopher Tuffley's story today, Avon Park City Council member George Hall sent a memo to City Manager Sarah Adelt outlining 10 ways he thinks the city could save money.
Hall's memo is in response to the financial crisis the city faces.
We are not going to argue for or against, or even discuss,
those ideas in this editorial. That discussion will come later.
Instead, for now, our aim is to encourage everyone to
become involved.
For too long leaders in Avon Park have been reactive, not proactive. This habit goes back decades, and is not new to the current city council. Nor is such lack of foresight restricted to the city council. Most city meetings are conducted in otherwise empty chambers. Too few citizens seem to care or demand vision from their government.
In fact, Hall's effort to take
a long view is both refreshing and overdue. With conditions in the world changing, adaptive actions need to be taken here at home.
It would be a welcome change, all by itself, if for once we approach the future with our eyes wide open and an agreed upon a plan to guide the way.
Because most of the actions Hall suggests, if undertaken, will fundamentally change
how services are delivered in the city, citizens should sit up, take notice, and become involved. At the very least, residents of Avon Park should make their opinions known.
To stay home and do nothing, thereby forcing a handful of people to make all the decisions, is simply passing the buck.
At a time, for example, when the people of Iran are risking their lives by taking to
the streets standing up for what they believe, it is sad that in our great democracy so many of us stay home and can't even find the time to attend a meeting in an air-conditioned building, furnished with padded chairs no less.
Complaining after the fact doesn't get the job done.
The council meets -again at 6 p.m. Monday in council chambers and will discuss budget issues at that time.

Sebring band should stand out on its own
Editor:
This is in response to the Sebring High School Band.
I cannot believe that our tradition or history of the band has gone out the window. Our colors are blue and white not, black and a little bit of blue. Our football team and every other sport wear blue and white. How tacky it is going to look with the band wearing black pants, black hats, black plumes, black jackets with a little bit of blue. It will look like we have a visiting band.
I wonder what would happen if the Gators or Hurricanes or other college football teams just up and changed their colors. I bet people would really hit the fan. But, for Sebring High School Band (also known as the Spirit of Sebring Blue Streak Band) this is OK?
I also understand the band director said that the black covers up mistakes and because there are a lot of freshmen coming up. That is ridiculous. That is the director's job to teach them how to march and play. Yes, it is hard to do but it can be done.
If you wanted to change the uniforms, why not get blue pants and blue and white jackets. I cannot believe that the hats we had were spray painted black, they looked terrible. I also understand that the band director ordered new black hats and black plumes. First of all why is she ordering them? We are Sebring not Avon Park, Avon Park are the ones who wears black pants, hats, and black plumes.
If the laundry bill is an issue, order washable uniforms. They do make such. I certainly hope Sebring High School Band does change back to the blue and white uniforms.

Transitional service can be an answer
Editor:
We've all been hearing a lot of news about health care programs and health care spending from the new administration. As a social worker/community liaison for a local home health agency I am entrusted with the responsibility of educating physicians and healthcare facilities on current therapies and programs to maintain patient's quality of health.
Physicians are typically dealing with the current situation/complaint when a patient is seen in the office or hospital. Consequently it's my duty to see that the provider has the most cur-
rent information regarding programs and therapies we offer to maintain patient health.
A recent AARP Fact Sheet states that poor communication among patients, providers and family caregivers often results in preventable hospital admissions. Twenty percent of older Americans with chronic ailments account for 75 percent of total Medicare spending -mainly due to high rates of hospital admissions and readmissions. A recent study estimated that Medicare spent $17.4 billion on largely preventable hospitalizations in 2004.
Home health and other transitional services can help prevent .hospital admissions, improve health outcomes, and substantially reduce health care costs. Home visits can be arraigned to coordinate complex care, such as medication changes, new diagnosis, multiple therapies, and more\ Education and self care management of chronic conditions, such as COPD, CHF, and diabetes, is very important for the patient and caregiver.
Several studies have, % shown that transitional care will reduce readmissions, save money, and result in better health outcomes. If you or a loved one has a chronic illness or is in need of home health care services don't hesitate to speak with your physician about services that may be available. Please don't wait until you've had a serious episode or hospital admission that could possibly have been prevented. Our mandate, as home health practitioners, is to prevent hospitalization and to assist the consumer in improving or maintaining their quality of life.

hurricane what do you do? Just give up and walk away? No, you hire contractors to repair the damage. Will these contractors do the work for altruistic reasons? No, they want to be paid! If your insurance doesn't cover the entire cost what do you do? You borrow the money!
This country was hit by the excessive spending of the Bush administration, tantamount to a financial hurricane. Where is President Obama going to get the money to repair the damage? He has to borrow it just as you and I would if we wanted to repair our homes, and he intends to repair our country.
What happened to the $800 billion that Bush pushed through last fall before he slipped out of his disastrous presidency? It just disappeared like the hundreds of billions that vanished in Iraq, gone, poof! Like a stage magician waving his wand over an assistant. Where did most of that money actually go? Why do companies like Haliburton's KBR that has been paid over $50 billion since 2003 with its no bid contracts.
Haliburton, by a strange coincidence, is the same company Dick Cheney was on leave from. Cheney, served as CEO of Haliburton from 1995 to 2000, and continued to receive as much as $1 million a year in deferred compensation. Remember it was Cheney who stated "the vice presidency is a unique office that is neither a part of the executive branch, nor a part of the legislative branch, and is therefore exempt from rules governing either." In other words "we can do any darn thing we please, including torture, and nobody can stop us."

Raise your hand if you remember the strange time tharwas the 2000 presidential election. If you're a Floridian and my bringing it up has undone years of therapy, please forgive me.
Those few weeks remind me of the old Chinese curse: "May you live in interesting times." No one would dispute that it was an interesting period in our country's history. Nor would anyone, especially Floridians, see it as anything pleasant.
During those weeks we saw both sides of the issue taking turns going between reasonable and idiotic. Men and women squinted at ballots, trying to define what a voter had "intended" as opposed to what they flat out did or didn't do. Phrases such as "hanging chad" and "butterfly ballot" became part of the vocabulary. Lawyers sprung up like weeds while we weren't looking, adding to the chaos.
It was a test for us and our system. There were peaceful protests during the whole process, again from both sides. Dire scenarios were spun out on what could happen if the whole mess wasn't settled by Inauguration Day.
Well, you know the rest of the story. Things finally set- ' tied down and decisions were made.
Not everyone was happy with the decisions, but almost everyone accepted the result.
No protesters were shot. No tanks rolled up Pennsylvania Avenue to anoint a leader. People managed to pull themselves together long enough to inaugurate George"W. Bush. Of course people still said nasty things, but that's the language of politics.
And if the reverse had happened and Al Gore had been the one to get the electoral votes, I think the same thing would've happened. People would have let him take the office, but reserved the right to criticize. Again, that's how we do it.
As crazy as those weeks were, as bad as the vitriol got at times, and as ludicrous as it all seemed, I'm willing to bet that if some Iranian voters had to choose between that situation and the current one, they'd settle for pregnant chads in a

heartbeat.
Iran held its presidential elections on June 12. That seems to be the only thing everyone over there agrees on. The polls barely closed before questions were raised on who won. The spiritual leader of Iran (who is the real leader for all intents and purposes) has indicated that he thinks Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the current leader (you may recall he claims the Holocaust never happened) won the election. A more moderate opponent, Mir Hossein Mousavi, has cried election fraud.
Protesters have taken the streets since then. According to some, the unrest in Iran is the worst its been since 1979. Government officials who have apparently never taken to the notion of "free speech" have sent police to try to get people to shut up and go home (or go to jail). They've also been busy trying to block out social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.
They haven't been very, successful. Protests continue as I type this. People are. finding ways around the Internet blocks the government keeps throwing up. Little by little, news trickles out. I've tried following the "tweets" but there's so many and no way to know what's truth and what's fiction.
I don't know how it will end. I have no idea if the Iranian election was rigged or not. But as I see videos of police firing into crowds and hear of arrests and threats I find myself thinking that even at its worst, our system isn't that bad at all.
One more thing. According to what I've read, the election turnout in Iran was somewhere around 85 percent.
My research shows that in 2008, the United States had the highest turnout that had been recorded in generations - 64 percent.
Maybe Iran can teach us something.

The Bush administration became so overwhelmed in spying on the citizens of this country that they had to contract out most of the intelligence gathering to private firms. Bush was handing civilian and government secrets to outsiders with little or no oversight!
In a recent letter someone wrote "blast Cheney and Bush all you want, they are not hiding anything." Now that's funny, the past administration was the most secretive in history!

There is no place like the local library
Editor:
Library cards are some of my souvenirs from places we have lived. After locating the grocery store and church, the public library was the next stop. One very warm memo-
Today's Letters
ry is a summer when we had our travel trailer at Lake Cicott near Logansport, Ind.
We had never been to Indiana when my husband was offered a job there. I learned that the library's book mobile made a weekly stop at the little Lake Cicott post office. So I was there and requested books by local, writers and books about the area. On weekends, we could visit places I had learned about, a walk on the campus at Notre Dame, the Amish country, the James Dean Museum in Fairmont.
After the summer, we moved down to Kokomo. Once again, getting acquainted with a new area and enjoying their large two-story library in the downtown area.
While living there, we had the opportunity to go to North Dakota for a month. The little town of Hazen had no traffic ligrit, however there was a neat little library.
I spent some afternoons there and learned a lot about the area. We visited the Teddy Roosevelt cabin in* . the park near there and also an historic Indian reservation.
I could mention many other libraries that I remember warmly. Now for the past 27 years we've lived in our hometown of Sebring. We watched the library being built and the addition and our wonderful Historical Society Archives located there.
When I meet new people who have moved to Sebring, I always tell them about the library and encourage them to get a card and enjoy!
So for research, reading for pleasure, a bit of local education, Internet access, audio books and many other features, there is no place like your hometown library.

An end to buffoonish fathers
Ah, Father's Day is upon us. I can't think of a better time for dads and men to remember how to be dads and men.
Flip on the tube any time during the day and you'll see fathers portrayed as hapless buffoons - saved from themselves by their wives and all-knowing children. The real life of the modern dad isn't much prettier.
To be sure, the state of the American male is in a shambles - though I'm not fully sure how we got here.
I remember the '60s. The women's movement was beginning to gain traction, but in our neighborhood the moms tended to cook and watch the children, whereas the men earned the money and tended to the yard, then shot the bull over a few Pabst Blue Ribbons.
I remember the '70s. The evening news featured equal-rights protests at which women burned their bras. Still, in our neighborhood, most of the moms stayed home and the dads worked and drank Pabst Blue Ribbon.
During the '80s, the economy exploded. Everyone was so busy working and getting ahead that few noticed - or took the time to celebrate - the tremendous strides women were making.
I got my first job out of college in 1984 and began working with many female professionals - they excelled in a range of jobs they wouldn't have been offered 20 years prior.
The '90s came and went quickly. Women kept blossoming and growing and doing well.
And in 2009, women are doing very well. They're doing better than men at all levels of education. They're gaining rapidly on men/as

small-business entrepreneurs. In the large metros, they're---! out-earning us by thousands of dollars.
As females excel,
males are faltering. We're dropping out of school at a far greater rate than women. We're seeing our income stall or decline - even men with college degrees are falling behind.
Somewhere along the way, women weren't content with mere equality. They decided they wanted to remake us in their own image.
Boy, have we responded.
Sensitive new-age men now spend hours fretting over their looks and style -we spend thousands getting our hair primped, our skin moisturized, our eyebrows waxed.
Modern dads are unsure of themselves, too. Fathers can be found misting up at baby showers and clapping enthusiastically the first time junior uses the commode.
And with every concession men have made we have lost status - we have , lost respect. Well, nuts to that.
Look, men, we need to whip ourselves back into shape - we need to remember how men and fathers should be.
When our wives dress our sons up in knickers and saddle shoes, we must respond the way older fathers would have responded: "No son of mine is going to wear any damn knickers!"
We must retake control
over the naming process of our children. We must give our boys names such as Tom, Mike, Jim and Joe -not let our wives name them Gilad, Jeremy and Michelle.
We need to stop seeking the approval of our sons and daughters. We are the adults and they are the children. Our role is to focus on the unpleasant job of fathering -to do the often unpopular work that will prepare them for a competitive world.
We must regain our backbone. We must earn respect by being good husbands and fathers - and we must demand that we be respected.
There's nothing wrong with being more attentive to our children than the father's of old were. There's nothing wrong with changing the diapers and having long conversations and showing emotion.
But somewhere along the way we've tossed the baby out with the bathwater -we've let ourselves become wimps and buffoons - and that isn't good for our wives, our kids or ourselves.
It's up to us now. We must restore some needed balance and equilibrium to the American family.
If we do, fathers, after a long productive day of fathering, will be able to enjoy an occasional Pabst Blue Ribbon on the back porch.
If we don't, it is just a matter of time before modern dads are forced to wear knickers and saddle shoes, too.

Community does good deed for Boy Scouts
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tujfley@newsswi.com
LAKE PLACID - Alan Richards, troop committee chairman for Boy Scout Troop 482 is overwhelmed and grateful. He can't get over how the community came together to help in a time of need.
The Boy Scout House on Dal Hall Boulevard was in need of repairs and paint, and in addition needed to be tied into the city's sewer and water system.
But this would all cost money and require expertise, neither of which Troop 48 had.
Richards had begun to explore how to raise the funds and find experts when suddenly men and organizations began to materialize without his even talking to them.
"It was awesome," he said.
"Linton Walker of Rainmaker Irrigation and Scott Webster of Monarch Plumbing guided me through the process of determining what was needed as far as supplies, permissions and permits," Richards said. "I don't know how much of their time my phone calls took, but their guidance made this possible, and I am grateful for their help."
Richards added that Frank Brown Construction donated pipe and the Lake Placid Masonic Lodge coordinated the donated services of Burke Marine Construction, Glover Plumbing, and All Around Septic.
"I arrived on Friday afternoon," Richards said, "after receiving a phone call that the sewer was being hooked up. I was amazed that by the time I got there, the job had been finished."
He added that Sapp Construction Clean-up then came by and box-bladed the area.
"The timing was great. With all the recent rain it became obvious our septic system was failing and the water was backing up," Richards said. "Luckily we were already working on the project.
"On top of that," he continued, "Sherwin Williams donated paint for the Scout House, and we had some cash contributions that we used for paint brushes and painting supplies."
But when he showed up to do some pre-painting repairs and prep work, Richards, once again to his surprise, found Larry and Laura DeSantis had beaten him to it.
"They had plastered the old particle board wall on the back of the house," he said.
"I don't think these businesses realize what a gift they have given the youth of Lake Placid, but we are extremely grateful," Richards said. "Their assistance had freed up our leadership to actually focus on a program for the boys. .
"It's people like this that make Lake Placid such a great place to live and raise a family."

Buccaneers Cat Fanciers show set for Sebring in July
Special to the News-Sun SEBRING - The Buccaneers Cat Fanciers will bring its Cat Fanciers Association show to the Quality Inn Conference Center in Sebring on July 11. The show will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; admission fee is $5. However, if a can of food is brought in and donated for the Highlands County
Humane Society, the admission fee will be $4.
This is a one-day show, but the ultimate goal is to make this a cluster show that would accommodate two clubs in the future and utilize both Saturday and Sunday.
One of the primary goals of the Buccaneers Cat Fanciers is to assist the Highlands County Humane
Society with adoptions. The organization will offer them not only the can donations from the "gate," but also give the local group a prime spot at the main entrance to highlight some of the cats that are available for adoption through the shelter.

Dad is boss, and in one case, it's the son
Continued from page
ask her for help. It didn't come quite out of the blue.
Off and on, as Sarah grew up. she had helped out in the showroom, answering phones, filling in paperwork, making copies of sales manuals, sending out the company's roughly 2,000 Christmas cards every year.
But she also learned the business and her duties grew. "He's a wonderful boss." she said of her dad.
Wells is just as complimentary when talking about her. "She's just a wonderful person, with a lot of character and integrity. You can totally trust her." he said.
Sarah laughed, because that also means her father trusts her to babysit his beloved Yorkshire terrier.
The affection between then shows in the way they banter as they speak, and the playful exchange of light physical pushes back and forth.
"Even when she was a teenager we could talk to one another," Wells said. "She didn't have any of the crazy teenage problems."
Sarah laughed again', "I was scared to death of him."
A one traffic light town
� When John Griffin arrived in Highlands County in 1978. he came ;up from Fort Lauderdale, which was rapidly chang-; jpg. Without any set idea of ;how he was going to make :a living, he was primarily ',interested in finding a safe �place to raise his family.
� In the course of his ;search he fell in love with ;Sebring. "There was only ;one traffic light on 27," he ;said and laughed, "there iwas a Burger Queen not a
1A Burger King."
Griffin had been the superintendent of the composition room for the Fort Lauderdale News. He figured if he could a run a composition room that turned out four editions, six days a week, he could handle anything.
A carpet store was for sale, down near where Woody's RVs is now. Griffin bought it and grew the business as the city and county grew.
From selling and installing carpet and vinyl, the company can now help with design and window treatments, as well as providing a selection of patio furniture and gas fireplaces.
Griffin's Carpet Mart is now at 560 U. S. 27 N.,
Griffin and his wife Jeanne have four grown children. The eldest, John, is a landscape architect and lives in Orlando. His two middle sons, in chronological order, Tom and Jim, have joined the family's business, as has the youngest child, and only daughter, Kelly. v
All three hung out at the store growing up. The boys especially started working early, learning the business from the ground up. In fact, said Jim, when he and Tom worked for carpet stores while in college, the main things they learned were how not to do things.
All three graduated from Florida State University -the boys majoring in business, Kelly in interior design.
Griffin never pushed his kids into following in his footsteps. The most important thing, he said, was for them to be happy.
On the other hand, when they expressed an interest, he was delighted.
His pride in his children
is self evident. As the family spoke to a visitor, Griffin couldn't help himself urging them to talk about their successes and public service. His sons are both past presidents of their Rotary organizations, and Kelly is the secretary of the Young Professionals and sits on Sebring's Community Redevelopment Agency's board.
That success has created a change, Kelly said, to which her father is still adjusting. "It used to be I was John Griffin's daughter," she said. "Now my dad is Kelly Griffin's father."
Their ease with one another is clear as well.
"We enjoy each other's company and always got along," Kelly said. "Even as kids we respected one another."
As for their father, Kelly said, "He instilled a strong work ethic in our lives, whether we were working here or somewhere else."
Griffin reciprocates with trust. Being able to delegate duties and know the customers and business are well cared for is an enormous relief and advantage, he said.
A reverse set up
The Millers of Lake Placid understand that too.
Although in their case, it was the son who created the business and the father who joined in.
"We're peas and carrots," Rick Miller said, referring to his father, Chuck Miller. "Not many sons and fathers can work together, but with him it's been a pleasure, a joy."
It was Rick who started Miller's Central Air Inc. in 1995, working first from his house. The business has
thrived and is now at 20 W. Interlake Blvd.
Rick's younger brother, David, joined him almost from the beginning, although he was diagnosed with cancer the same year. David ran the office.
Chuck Miller, who had retired from a career with a business dealing with concrete and quarries, found himself bored. A numbers man, who didn't know an air conditioner from an electric fan, he took over the financials.
For nine years they ail worked together, until David passed � away in 2004.
Losing David caused such pain both men feel it to this day. But both also say with pride that he lived his life well and is remembered with love by customers and friends, not just the family.
"He had a million dollar smile," said Chuck, ever the proud father. "He made people laugh. The whole time he was sick he never complained once."
Chuck is just as proud of Rick. "I am proud of the way he's raising his children and his contributions to the community," he said. "He's a good member of his church on top of that."
Rick smiles when talking about his father. "His devotion and dedication are amazing, he constantly stays busy, in this day and age you don't see that a lot. He's the one who taught me to do things right the first time."
"I know my limitations," Chuck replies. "That's why we get along so well. I don't pretend to know things I don't."
"Ninety-nine percent of the time I support what he suggests," Rick said laughing.

"The main thing," he said in an interview, "is we want to slow the process down to be sure the public has an opportunity to be included."
He added that the police department is very aware of what is being considered, and is opposed.
Soule looks forward to Monday night's meeting, which he hopes will shed more light on the situation.
AUoe Hinson, city council member, said in a telephone interview Friday afternoon that
on the subject of public safety, "I truly believe in what people say when they say they are afraid to live their lives.
"I've had problems with dispatch people not knowing the area. I don't believe in other folks taking care of us."
On some of the other issues Hinson was more favorable. For example, regarding the creation of an airport authority he said, "I think we should have that."
Other council members preferred to wait for Monday's meeting. Brenda Gray wasn't for or against anything at this time, and Joe Wright was harvesting silage and hadn't had an opportunity to read Hall's memo. Hall is out of town.
Sebring eyes higher fire assessment

Sebring has six categories - residential, commercial, industrial/warehouse, institutional, and land. Nursing homes will be the hardest hit by the assessment, jumping from two cents per square foot to four cents per square foot, but the net increase for city coffers will be a wash overall.
According to Councilman Scott Stanley, the assessment is a "more fair way of distributing the costs for fire protection."

"I know that this would raise more for the city, but with the current economic conditions, I think it would be unfair for us to raise this to 5 percent," Rhodes said.
Rhodes went on to point out that churches, those who would be effected by a raise larger than 2 percent, already contribute a lot to the community in ways that are not easily measured.
"They have after-school programs and summer programs. Churches contribute a lot back," Rhodes said.
Sebring installed the fire assessment in 2008 as a way to make up lost revenue by state-mandated tax cuts and still maintain the same level of services.
The city implemented a 10 percent funding level, but elected to ease into funding the fire assessment at the 1 percent level.
Records indicate that the 1 percent funding level rounded up $71,152 in revenue for 2008-09.
According to the budget projections handed out at the workshop, at 2 percent funding it would realize an estimated revenue of $87,438 for 2009-10.
Disaster preparedness training set for week
Continued from 1A
As one of the speakers, Topel will address tips on how to make a business safe, where they can turn when disaster strikes, and information on small business loans called Hurricane Bridge Loans.
"FHREDI has been the organization that has handled the bridge loans from the state but we are also going to have the Small Business Development Center with us," Topel said. "They will talk about things they do at the time of a disaster along with loan programs and helping businesses get back on their feet."
David Noel, certified
business analyst with the SBDC, said one of the primary concerns is that when a business closes, like during a disaster, not too many of them open up again, he said.
He will be discussing ways to continue business after a disaster to ensure customers still come to the business that remains open and not someone else's.
"It's a lot of common sense from one perspective, but people don't normally think like that during a storm," he said.
The example Topel gave was her own. FHREDT employees have > laptop computers that they take
with them and put in their trunks, they wrap up everything inside the office to protect it from water damage, and all of the accounting is done online.
"So no matter where we're at we can get into our books and our finances," she said.
Businesses interested in attending the training are asked to RSVP before noon Tuesday by calling Mary Freeman at 385-4900. A small breakfast will be served.

Piece of range history restored, returned
Continued from page 2A
our airmen a chance to work on history and they did an absolutely phenomenal job," he said before presenting each of the team with a 23rd Wing Commander's coin.
There was no doubt that the veterans present found that the return of the drone to the Avon Park Air Force Range was very meaningful.
"Upon behalf of the local community and particularly
those who were stationed______
and worked here when the drone was in use, I would" like to thank the men and women of Moody AFB for making this happen today," Whitton said. "We are proud that this-drone is now on display here where hundreds of-young men received their gunnery training here. It is certainly a memorial for all who have served here at the Avon Park Air Force Range."
The Moody AFB airmen also recognized the importance of being able to restore a part of Air Force history.
"It was great seeing how much the veterans cared about this," said Airman 1st
Class Patrick Shea, 23rd EMS aircraft structural maintainer. "It is easy to see what this piece of history means to them and I am proud to be a part of it."
MacLaughlin, the current commander, also agreed.
"It is great to see a part of our old heritage returned," he said. "Avon Park Range -is now working to improve the bombing range here. We startecTwith a full air range capabilities in the late 1950s �and that tapered.off in the 1990s to us being almost in a caretaker status. We're now trying to be more functional."
The 23rd Wing is a direct descendent of the famed Flying Tiger unit of World War II and is proud to keep many of its traditions and history alive yet today.
The drones weigh 350 pounds and were of aluminum construction with a wingspan of eight feet, powered by a McCullough 0-100-1, two-cycle, air-cooled, four-cylinder propelling the small craft at speeds of 200 knots at sea level.
These mighty little aircraft made it interesting for the
gunners of the B-29, B-52s and B-58s programs. The small aircraft with its rate of high speed made it next to impossible to be hit by the best gunners that the Strategic Air Command had to offer at the time.
If the gunner firing from a stationary firing position as able to accomplish a "kill," he would be given a~"Dead Eye" certificate recognizing his accomplishment. Later on in the program, the radio-controlled drohes~were equipped with radio reflectors for use with the gun system that used radar "lock-ons." It was reported that later, with the use of radar, the gunnery range was forced to include a "radar deflection offset" as the gunners were becoming too proficient, thus costing the Air Force too much in downed drone aircraft.
The restored relic of the Cold War is now located on the Avon Park Air Force Range to remind all who see it of the drone's role in the defense of the United States.
Purchase attempted with stolen credit card
Continued from page 2A
later that evening with the binder in his possession.
When officials contacted employees from the lift kit Web site, they were unable to provide a specific item purchased because the attempted purchase was voided out.
An IP address and shipping address were available to investigators, who, through records at the Highland's County Property Appraiser's Web site, reportedly linked the purchase to Davis.
The items were to be
shipped to a house allegedly owned by his father.
Due to the lengthy investigation into the transaction, Davis was only arrested last
week. He was booked into the Highlands County Jail late Wednesday night and was released Thursday morning on $3,000 bond.

Florida's jobless rate soars in May to 10.2 percent
By BRENT KALLESTAD
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE Florida's unemployment rate in May jumped to 10.2 percent � its highest level in more than three decades.
The state agency that tracks unemployment numbers said Friday that unemployment rose by half a percentage point over the revised April figure of 9.7 percent. The May figures represent the highest unemployment number in Florida since 1975 when it was 11 percent.
The national unemployment number for May stood at 9.4 percent.
The Agency for Workforce Innovation said 943,000 Floridians workers are now out of a job, including 58,000 who got pink slips last month.
Thirty three of Florida's 67 counties now have double-digit unemployment.
In Flagler County,- which borders the Atlantic Ocean in northeast Florida, one in
seven eligible workers have been idled during the longest recession since the Great Depression in the early 1930s.
The counties least affected have been insulated largely by a high number of government jobs or are rural counties that are home to state prisons.
More than 417,000 Floridians have lost jobs in the last year, including nearly 91,000 in the construction industry alone.
In May 2008, the state's unemployment number stood at 5.8 percent.
AWI director Cynthia Lorenzo left a meeting with Gov. Charlie Crist on the unemployment situation through an exit away from waiting reporters. Crist, meanwhile, headed to Fort Lauderdale where he planned to visit a job center.
Some economists, however, predict things could worsen slightly before any turnaround.

FWC acts to rebuild Gulf red snapper stocks
MyFWC.com The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) on Thursday voted to adjust the recreational harvest season for red snapper in Gulf of Mexico state waters to account for over-harvests in 2008.
The Commission took this action after receiving support
from several fishing groups and conservation organizations at its public hearing in Crystal River.
The National Marine Fisheries Service has estimated that recreational fishers in the Gulf exceeded last year's annual red snapper catch limit by about 1.2 million pounds.
A federal law requires that
harvest levels must be reduced in the year following a previous year's overhar-vest.
Consequently, the NMFS shortened the recreational red snapper harvest season in Gulf federal waters (beyond nine nautical miles from shore) from June 1 through Sept. 30 to June 1 through Aug. 14.
The FWC has now approved the same season change for state waters.
"Shortening the fishing season will reduce, the harvest of Gulf red snapper in the short term and help rebuild the fishery's population so that anglers can enjoy better red snapper fishing in the future," said FWC Chairman Rodney Barreto.

Sebring rides late rally to win, early deficit too much for Avon Park
News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Avon Park's Norris Gordon took one into the orange groves beyond the center-field fence Saturday morning, but it wasn't enough as Avon Park fell, 5-2, to Okeechobee in the first-round of the Dixie Ozone District 8 Tournament in Lake Placid. ,
By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com LAKE PLACID - Things seemed to be going the way of the Green Dragon Ozone All-Stars Saturday in the District 8 Tournament -playing on their home turf and riding the right arm of staff ace Tyler Carr.
But a sixth-inning rally earned Sebring a 4-3 win in the Lake Placid tourney
3opener. For five of the six innings a usually strong Sebring offense was held in check by Carr, getting just one hit, one base on balls and striking out seven times.

OKEECHOBEE - The Sebring All-Stars heavy hitting contributed to their 14-0 mercy win over Lake Placid in the first round of the District 8-AAA Tournament in Okeechobee on Saturday after just four full innings.
Making an immediate statement, Sebring jumped out front 5-0 in the top of the first inning with their big bats.
"We hit, that's we are know for," said Sebring's head coach Dean Frazier.
"We knew we had to come out hard and make a state-

ment, and we tried our best to do that," Fraizer said.
"Hats off to Lake Placid, they made some amazing plays, but I am glad we could play our game," Fraizer said.
Frazier also gave kudos to lake Placid's Sam Weber-Callahan, who made two spectacular snags at short stop to stall the
ISebring bats. "He plays bigger than he is," said Lake Placid's head coach Mark Callahan about the 4-foot spark-plug short-stop who seemed ten feet tall when the ball came near him.

Gomez said. "He throws hard and he kept us off balance."
And with a 2-0 lead, on a wild-pitch scamper home by Justin LaRosa in the second and a Ryan Browning RBI ground-out in the fourth, a win seemed in the offing.
"I told our kids to just stay in there and by the second or third time through the order we should be able to get to him," Gomez said.
It was that third time through the order as Brandon Ferretti came through with the big blow -a game-tying, two-run homer over the right center field fence in that fateful sixth inning.
After !J.C. Cobb lined a single to left, LaRosa came in to pitch and promptly got a double play on a Connor Cook liner to Carr at short, nabbing Cobb at first to seemingly end that threat and keep it a tie game.
But the Sebring offense was now unleashed and after a walk to Alex Gomez, Alex Forde drove in the go-ahead run with a blast off the right-field fence.
Easton Davis followed with a single to put runners on the corners and Jordan Baker singled Forde home with a needed insurance run.
It was needed because Scott Colley drew a walk for Lake Placid with one out in the bottom of the sixth and scored when Isiah Velazquez's rap was mishandled on the infield..
Carr then grounded out, but moved the tying run to third before an attempt lo

score on a wild pitch provided the final out.
"It's a tough game to lose, though anytime you lose it's hard," Lake Placid head coach Steve Carr said. "In hindsight, Tyler was probably running out of gas and I should have pulled him after the fifth, but that's how it goes. We'll just come out tomorrow and try it again."
Over on the other field at the Lake June complex, Okeechobee took advantage of early walks and their own strong defense to top Avon Park, 5-2.
"They fielded everything that was hit at them," head coach Chad Wright said, "Our walks early on hurt us, we gave them gifts and that got us behind early." The li'l Devils tried making a comeback as Norris Gordon sent one into the orange groves for a tape-measure home run in the third inning.
They also had a rally going in the fourth, loading the bases with one out, but a sacrifice fly RBI to deep right-center off the bat of Mark Devlin was all that would come across.
"We played well and made all our plays," Wright said. "But we just have to stay positive and realize that we have another chance. We get to come back out tomorrow and play again."
Round two of the District 8 Tournament has Sebring meeting Okeechobee today in the winner's bracket at 2 p.m. while Avon Park and Lake Placid square off in an elimination game, also with a 2 p.m. starting time.

And Another Thing...

Baseball got this right �
While Major League Baseball is ripe for criticism on a few fronts, there is one thing I was reminded of this week that they assuredly got right.
It was in 1997 that inter-league play was first introduced and it's kind of shocking, really, to realize it's been going on that long.
Maybe it's a bit different for the younger generations, and/or for Florida natives who have been rooting for their home teams for just a bit longer and just a bit shorter than that 12-year time span.
But for those of use who grew up and watched our teams play since way back when, the leagues being separate was what we were used to.
As a Cub fan, I could 'adopt' a favorite American League team, since the only time they'd face each other would be in the World Series - when I'd have to make a choice.
And being a Cub fan, I have long since known the chance of them meeting any team, much less my favorite American League team, in the Fall Classic was something I'd not have to worry about any time soon.
But then, that American League team I had as my

going this game," Callahan said about the loss.
"They played a good game," he added talking about Sebring's win.
The dominating Sebring bats were led by Jay Bible and Josh Crouch, according to Frazier.
"They were able to clutch hit with two down for us that kept the runs coming," Fraizer said.
Fraizer also commented about Sebring's solid defense, that kept Lake Placid off the score board.
Josh Crouch and Crystal Grimaldo threw strikes for us, and that gave us the victory," Frazier added.

Rare match-ups a breath of fresh air
Continued from IB
second favorite, the Milwaukee Brewers, were not only moved into the National League, but right into the Cubs own division.
So I had to scratch them from the favorites list.
But even before that, interleague play had me having to quell the thought of having an 'other league' favorite - which is a good thing, really, not splitting allegiances. ' .
I thought by now that maybe I'd just take for granted that the two leagues would intermingle for a bit each season, but I was awakened this week with the other aspect of interleague play - even with the divisions mixing and matching, the natural rivalries will be played every season.
Which means the Yankees always have a couple series against the Mets, the Cubs
always will face the White Sox, the Dodgers will play the Angels and the Marlins will square off with the Rays.
Anybody from any of the cities or states in those rivalries will attest to the fact that those match-ups will never get old.
While one team, or the other, or both, may not be having a good season, each one does have it's loyal fan base.
And when you get the loyal fans of teams from one city, or state, it always amps things up a bit.
I got my taste of that this past week, which I suppose re-opened my eyes.
Because when I was then putting the schedules together for the upcoming games, I realized that Cleveland was coming to play the Cubs and that soon, the Men in Blue would be heading to Detroit
to face the Tigers.
OK, so neither team is having an especially great year, nor would they ordinarily raise great levels of excitement.
But it's the chance to see my team play against teams that are in 'that other league.'
The fact that I rarely saw those teams while growing up, that I never saw my team play against them until 12 years ago, that some of their* players might be playing in Wrigley Field for the first time, or that some Cub players might be playing at Detroit for the first time.
A nice, and needed, little twist that breathes some fresh life into the long 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 customers.
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 natural gas customers of Sebring Gas. The incentives are for the homeowner 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 cobking...................$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.

Avon Park drops first round to Okeechobee squad
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun .com
OKEECHOBEE - The Avon Park All-Stars dropped the first game of the District 8-AAA Baseball Tournament 8-0 . to Okeechobee Saturday.
The hot summer sun stalled Avon Park after six innings of baseball, but did not seem to effect the bats of Okeechobee who was able to maintain a steady lead for the whole game.
"(Anthony) Tores threw good game for us, and he started a short rally in the fourth, but we just couldn't seem to get in the game," said Avon Park's head coach
Stacey Landress.
"That's baseball, but we are looking forward to the next game," Landress said.
Okeechobee picked up two quick in the bottom of the first, jumping out front right out of the box, and picked up one more n the second, and third innings before Avon Park seemed to get a handle of the game.
In the top of the fourth, Tores was able to pound one out of the infield, and an error at first insured he got on.

Zack Landress was able to get a single in the top of the sixth, but again the Avon park team was stalled by Okeechobee's defense and sluggish bats. �
Okeechobee was able to pick up four in the fifth to seal the deal, and hold Avon Park scoreless in the sixth for the win.
"We just could not seem to get our game going," Landress said.

Texas, LSU post wins in College World Series
Associated Press
OMAHA, Neb. - Connor Rowe hit a game-winning solo home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, moments after Cameron Rupp tied it with a homer of his own as Texas came from behind to beat Arizona State 4-3 in the College World Series on Friday night.
Rowe sent a shot into the left-field seats off Mitchell Lambson (9-5), then sprinted around the bases with his helmet raised in his right hand as his celebrating teammates waited at home plate to greet him.
Two batters earlier, Rupp homered over the 22-foot wall in straightaway center field to tie it.
Texas (49-14-1) advanced to the CWS best-of-three finals starting Monday against LSU.
The Longhorns will try to become the first No. 1 national seed to win the title since Miami in 1999.
Rowe, who batted in the No. 9 spot, hit the first walkoff homer in Omaha since Texas' Chance Wheeless did it in a win over Baylor in 2005.
It looked as if the Sun Devils (51-14) would force a Saturday rematch for the Bracket 2 championship after they took a 3-2 lead in the top of the ninth on Zach Wilson's RBI triple.
Austin Wood (6-1) got the win after throwing three innings in relief of starter

LSU 14, Arkansas 5
OMAHA, Neb. - LSU hit four home runs and ace righthander Anthony Ranaudo threw six solid innings as LSU eliminated Arkansas and advanced to next week's College World Series finals.
The Tigers, who have hit nine homers in three CWS games and 102 overall, homered in three straight innings to break open a game that started 2 1/2 hours late because of rain.
Blake Dean, Jared Mitchell, Ryan Schimpf and Tyler Hanover all homered
for LSU (54-16), which has won 13 straight and will play for its sixth national title and first since 2000.
Arkansas (41-24) was outscored 23-6 by LSU in two CWS games, and the Razorbacks lost four of five games overall against the Southeastern Conference-rival Tigers this season.
Ranaudo (11-3) allowed four hits and had five strikeouts.
Arkansas closer Stephen Richards (6-2), in his first start since April 2007, lasted two innings.
He gave up four hits and four runs, two unearned.
