SEBRING - James Parker III was.in
court Tuesday for a pretrial conference,
his first appearance in front of a judge
since being indicted for first degree mur-
der.
While the charge he faces in the death
of 22-month-old Kaedyn Short is punish-
able by the death penalty, Steve Houchin
of the State Attorney's Office told Judge


Peter-Estrada that he was not ready to let
* the court know what punishment the state
will seek against the Avon Park Police
Officer.
The June 24 indictment could affect
Parker's attorney, William Fletcher, and
Parker's right to a speedy trial.
After his arrest on March 29 for aggra-
*vated child abuse, Parker had not waived
his right to a speedy trial. A defendant has
the right to a trial within 175 days of their


arrest, and more than half that time has
already passed since Parker's initial
charge.
Fletcher said he wasn't ready for trial
and had yet to receive Short's medical
records from the state.
Houchin said he was ready, and with
Short in hospice care after being on life
support for nearly two months that

A high-flying life


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
This is a model of an AT-6, that is, an advanced trainer. If you could fly
an AT-6, you could fly anything, Barry Smith said. Smith trained on this
kind of airplane, and later tested AT-10s, the same type, but with twin
engines.

history with WASPs


By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.co
AVONYPARK - She'll
turn 90 her next birthday, but
Barry Vincent Smith still has
the snap of a good apple
cider vinegar.
Her memories of her youth
are crisp and clear, which is a
wonderful thing, because
Smith has had a more event-
ful life than most.
She is one of the Women
Airforce Service Pilots, or
WASPs, who were honored
last Wednesday with
Congressional Gold Medals
for their work during World
War II.
The force of 1,074 women
flew a total of 60 million
miles of operational flights
between September of 1942
and December of 1944, deliv-
ering 12,650 aircraft of 78
different types.
They also towed targets for
live ammunition artillery
practice, simulated strafing


runs, transported cargo, and
ran check flights to test
planes after repairs.
The recognition is long
overdue. Hired on as civil
servants, WASPs originally
were not recognized as mili-
tary veterans; even though 38
of them died in the line of
duty.
In fact, when a woman
died in the line of duty, her
family had to pay to have her
body returned home.
In the cases where the fam-
ily didn't have the money,
fellow WASPs pitched in
among themselves.
They also had to pay for '
their own meals and room.
It wasn't until 1977 during
the administration of
President Jimmy Carter -
and with the essential help of
Senator Barry Goldwater,
hirhself a ferry pilot during
the war - that the women
were finally awarded veteran
status and benefits.

Barry Smith sits in front of a photograph taken of her dur-
ing her time as a Woman Airforce Service Pilot; or WASP,
during World War II. She mostly tested the trainers used to
teach men how to fly to be sure they were safe after repairs.
She also tested planes that were being retired, to be sure
they were safe enough to fly to the junkyard. WASPS
earned a reputation for being brave and good pilots. When
the B-29 Superfortress first came on line male pilots were
initially afraid to fly them because of alleged mechanical
problems. It was two WASPs who flew one, the Lady Bird,
on a tour of bases to demonstrate how safe the plane was.

raise neglect issues

SEBRING - More than 20 resi-

sioners Tuesday with concerns of


neglect and lack of consis-

borhood.
"We have been neglected

Highway Park resident Rev.

"Highlands Park Utilities has to

building

Benton: 'Our need
is immediate'
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Sheriff
Susan Benton addressed
the commissioners
Tuesday about moving
forward with alternatives
for a new building, includ-
ing renting the first floor
of the SunTrust Building
on U.S. 27 South in
Sebring.
, Commissioner Barbara
Stewart advised that the
'Sheriff's Office continue
to look for alternatives.
"I need to get everyone
not associated with the jail
out of that (old) building. I.
will be moving all law
enforcement out of the
building as soon as possi-
ble.'
"Here's the bottom line:
We have been looking for
four years. Our need is
immediate, not two years
from now. Even if you
decided to
build new
today, that's
still a year
and a half
out. We have
got to lease Benton
space regard-
less to meet immediate
needs right now. It's not
gonna fix the hot ticket
items, but we are out of
space," Benton said.
"We have looked
before, and we have
looked since, but what has
happened is that we have
reached a point where we
have to get people out of
that building," Benton
said. "We heard that there
is a vast amount of rental
space available in
Highlands County, so we
issued an RFP for possible
spaces, but we got just
three responses after
advertising for two
weeks."
Benton stated that look-
ing at the SunTrust build-
ing was possibly the best
option right now, but com-
missioner Guy Maxcy had
some concerns about the
price per square foot for
the lease.
"That may be a little
high in this day in time,"
Guy Maxcy said referring
to the $15-per-squiare-foot
proposal.
A representative from
SuinTrust's Leasing
Division, Thomas
Crociats, informed com-
missioners that the amount
was a starting point.

Affordability top concern raised in rural health care report


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.:tuffley@newssun.corn
SEBRING - In February and
March 2009 a team from the Center
for Rural Health Research and
Policy at Florida State University's
College of Medicine held a series of
town hall meetings in five different
rural Florida counties - Highlands,
Bradford, Hendry, Liberty, and
Madison.
The town hall meetings were the
last piece of a larger assessment,
which included surveys with health
care providers and public, health
agencies.
The goal, said Dr. Gail Bellamy
of FSU, who led the town hall meet-
ings, was to "try to get more than


one county's input, and more than
the opinions of health care
providers alone, to find out what is
most important to the people of an
area."
The town hall report, in addition
to the larger study, will be used by
planners to develop future health
care policy.
Bellamy also said the question of
what to do next is a very difficult
one, given the hard economic times.
She sees some hope coming from
the national level in the terms of
reform, but emphasized nothing is
certain at this time.
As an example of what could
result from the report, Bellamy
pointed to the first such study, com-


pleted in 2002.
That led to the creation of the
Medicare Flexibility Program,
which helped small rural hospitals
at risk of closing to remain open,
and the creation of the FSU College
of Medicine with a mission that tar-
gets rural and vulnerable popula-
tionis while increasing the number
of physicians choosing primary
care.
The 2009 report, Bellamy said,
was striking for several reasons, the
first being how the five town meet-
ings all reflected the same concerns,
which in turn mirrored those
expressed by health care providers.
"Affordability of health care
services continues to be an issue,"


Bellamy said.
She was "struck by how much
popped up regarding the economy,
and how the participants empha-
sized the importance of overall
community health, that is psycho-
logical health, emotional health,
and financial health."
Literacy, e-literacy, and health
literacy were also regarded as
essential - especially regarding
prevention of chronic diseases.
The loss of insurance and loss of
access to care - including trans-
portation, not just a shortage of doc-
tors or ability to pay - were other
major concerns.
A lack of specialty care and the
cost of prescription drugs also were


common worries.
In addition, "the issues of com-
munication, collaboration and coop-
eration among health care providers
in the community" were raised
across the board, said Bellamy.
"Networking to make the best use
of scarce resources by eliminating
duplication and fragmentation has
long been recognized as essential
for small, under-xesourced commu-
nities."
The report is being circulated to
sponsors, participants and the state.
What happens next depends a lot on
them, Bellamy said.

Greg Harris is the new interim president/chief executive officer for the Greater Sebring
Chamber of Commerce.

Former Chamber board president

named to interim CEO position


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - Greg Harris,
who spent the early 1990's as
president of the Sebring
Chamber of Commerce
Board of Directors, was
named as outgoing President
Sarah Pallone's successor
Monday morning.
Harris will spend the rest
of the week working with
Pallone, who took over the
chamber roughly 15 months
ago. He will assume full
responsibility on Monday.
"We believe because we
have a good relationship with
(Pallone) that he will have
continued contact with her,"
said David Noel, current
head of the Chamber board.
"I believe (Harris) can take
the situation, jump into it and
'do something good with it."
Harris, a Sebring resident
for the past 24 years, beat out
34 other applicants, most of
whom were also local.
"There were some very
strong candidates but
(Harris) stood well above the
rest in the interviews," Noel
said.
Board members conducted
in-person interviews of 11
potential candidates, but
Harris separated himself

from the others with his
"good, vibrant ideas of what
'to do with the chamber,"
Noel said.
"I'm a big believer in the
chamber. I've been very sup-
portive of what it does; what
it stands for," Harris said.
"We have some challenges
that face us ... and I kind of
thrive on that - I enjoy chal-
lenges."
Harris has been active on
boards across the county, not
just the chamber board.
He served on the Board of
Directors for Sebring Rotary,
the Salvation Army advisory
board, and the Heartland
Regional Medical Center
advisory board of directors,
he said.
He originally came to the
area in 1985 to help his father.
develop the Country Club of
Sebring.
After they sold the proper-
ty he worked at Home Depot
for four years as a depart-
ment supervisor in several
departments and then worked
for Taylor Rental another
four years as their general
manager, he said.

Although he was only
hired as interim president,
Harris said he wants to make
his latest move long term.
He will serve between
three and six months before
the board decides what do to.
"We always hope this per-
son we selected can go the
distance but we haven't had a
chance to stop and talk about
(Harris keeping the job long
term,)" Noel said. "But (the
board) will go with what we
feel is best for the chamber.
We'll give it a few days
before we continue on that
conversation."
The job of interim presi-
dent was advertised as a 90-
180 day position.
"Currently we are set up
with Heartland Workforce to
search for a permanent pres-
ence," Noel said. "In hiring
(Harris) we told him he has
the right to apply and do his
best to keep that position as
well."


Possible zoning


issues for Eagle


Training Center


Neighbors
say they

were not

notified
By ED BALDRIDGE
*ed.baldridge@newssun .com
SEBRING - County
commissioners decided to
move forward with the
Eagle National Security
Training Center facility
near Venus on Tuesday
despite zoning concerns
raised by residents living
near the project.
The state's Department
of Community Affairs
(DCA) raised several issues
about the proposed training
facility in August of 2008,
and County Project
Manager Mark Hill was in
the process of explaining
the Stipulated Settlement
Agreement that county staff
had reached with DCA
when adjacent property
owners complained that
they had not been properly
notified concerning the
rezoning of the area.
Highlands County resi-
dent Daniel Preston has
property within 300 feet of
the new development area,
and informed the commis-
sion that he was never noti-
fied of the rezoning.
Property owners within
500 feet of, are required to
be notified.
"I never received any
notice concerning this
issue," Preston said. "This
is the first that have heard
about the rezoning. I was
not notified about this
before hand."


Leslie Landers, another
adjacent property owner,
echoed that concern.
"We did not get proper
notification either,"
Landers said.
"There are going to be a
helicopter pad, a runway,
live ammunition, and we
were not informed,"
Preston said.
Hill assured the commis-
sion that everything was
done properly at first, but
after a break in the meeting,
Hill stated that the certified
notifications were not
found.
"It appears that the 2008
rezoning may not have been
done properly," Hill said.
But Hill recommended
that the county continue
with the agreement with
DCA, and that the rezoning
process could be redone at
a later date.
"If the zoning was not
done properly, we have 60
days to after we sign the
agreement to get it done
properly," Hill said.
Preston disagreed that
the project should continue,
especially if the zoning was
not done as per statute.
"Since this was not done
properly, I recommend that
you not approve this today.
I am concerned about the
aircraft and the bombing
that is going to go on at this
facility.
"You are approving
something that should not
have gotten this far,"
Preston said.
Despite the possible lack
of notices, the commission
approved the agreement
recommend by staff unani-
mously.

James Parker III and attorney William Fletcher (right) may have to part ways if the state
plans on seeking the death penalty in the Kaedyn Short murder case.

Parker in court Tuesday morning


Continued from page 1A
Fletcher should have seen the murder charge
coming.
"I'm ready for trial," Houchin told Estrada
in court. "I can go to trial next week."
Fletcher said without medical records he
wouldn't be ready within the next 30 to 60
days.
He asked for a break to discuss the new
charges with Houchin. After the break, during
which Fletcher spoke privately with Houchin
and then with Parker, he addressed Estrada.
"We are going to waive speedy trial today,"
he said.
Even after the right to a speedy trial is


waived, Parker can demand a speedy trial and
can have one within 60 days, Estrada said.
Fletcher again said he didn't have the med-
ical records, but Houchin quickly responded
that he would make sure he had them "this
afternoon."
The issue with Fletcher being retained as
Parker's defense attorney is that Fletcher is
not death penalty certified and can't work on
a case where the death penalty is being
sought. '
Houchin did not say whether or not he
would seek the death penalty.
Parker's next pre-trial conference is sched-
uled for Sept. 23 on the aggravated child
abuse charge.


HCSO hoping to find new home soon


Continued from page 1A
SunTrust has a big appetite
about making this project go
forward," Crociats said.
Benton also asked for per-
mission to start the work
needed to get the ball rolling
on possibly purchasing the
building.
"We are going to lease the
first floor. I would also like
your blessing to begin some
due diligence to get the first
right of refusal for the
SunTrust Bank Building,"
Benton said.
"We have to discover if the
building is going to meet our
needs first. We need to look at
the roof, for example, and if
the windows are wind compli-
ant," Benton said.
"There is a lot of potential
there, but we are going to
move forward with a lease,"'
Benton added.
"We could possibly buy this
building for $1.4 million and
renovate it for $2-$2.5 mil-
lion," said Lisa Burley, the
Administrative Director for
the Sheriff's Department.
Benton and Burley said
there are immediate needs at
the current HCSO building
that have to be addressed now.


"The Halon fire suppres-
sion system has failed in the
old building. And ADA
requirements not currently
being met. The HVAC capaci-
ty is not in compliance with
current standards, and has to
be changed out. We are on an
island with a tidal wave com-
ing rapidly. If we do not
address this soon, it's not
going to be good," Burley told
commissioners.
Part of the issue for buying
the SunTrust building lies in
the actual ownership of the
property.
"SunTrust does not have
the title of the building, we
also lease the building,"
Crociats told the commission.
"The second and third floor
not available to us currently,
but the sub-lease is up in
2010," Benton said. "But we
can possibly put dispatch on
the second floor."'
According to Benton, the
renovations could be lower
than quoted due to the econo-
my.
"The $100 per square foot
renovations is the current bid
we have. But there are a lot of
unknowns right now," Benton
said.


"Keep in mind this is not
the idea situation, but it will
be a, great savings up front.
This can take care of the
issues immediately, and it
could work out nicely,"
Benton said.
Commissioner Jeff Carlson
told Benton that he thought
she was on the right track.
"I wanted to say that I am
glad to see this building con-
sidered," Carlson said.

use these because there is no
alternative. The boat dock is
in disrepair, and the grass is
overgrown. The cemetery
where we bury our dead has
old cars and an abandoned
trailer. We would just like
code enforcement to-be con-
sistent in this area,"
Robinson said.
Highlands County Sheriff
Susan Benton echoed
Robinson's. concerns.
"Code enforcement, code
enforcement, code enforce-
ment. I cannot stress that
enough," Benton said.
"Consistent application of
the laws you already have on
the books, that makes all the
difference. We cannot sit
back and wait for a complaint
in that area. I took Mr.
(Michael) Wright on tour of
that area in my police car just
a few weeks ago to point out
these issues. Until that envi-
ronment is safe and secure,
folks are not going to feel
safe there," Benton stressed.
Commissioner Barbara


Stewart addressed the citi-
zens by pointing out that the
county has already spent
money in the area of concern.
"We have put significant
resources into that area. I
have another district in Avon
Park that also been neglected
over the years, and I am cur-
rently working with the city
to address those issues,"
Stewart said.
Commissioner Don Bates,
whose district includes
Highway Park, was taken on
a tour of the area by
McGahee and other resi-
dents, who pointed out the
lack of road repair, the dilap-
idated dock and drainage
issues.
"I don't think that most of
the items they are bringing
up are big ticket items, and
we can fix most of these
issues quickly," Bates said.
"We just want to see the
people of. Highway Park
treated fairly. I am sure that
we can work together to
make our neighborhood bet-
ter," Rev. McGahee said.


Smith, other WASPs finally get

recognition for their service


Continued from page 1A
depression in upstate New
York, in a small town 18
miles east of Syracuse, she
went to work early for the
telephone company earning
$25 a week. Her life at the
time was a drone of routine.
Then all of that changed.
Smith was the middle
child, and only girl, of three
siblings. Both her brothers
had already joined the Army
Air Corps to become pilots.
In September of 1942 her
older brother George told
her about the new WASP
organization, being created
out of two earlier groups, to
provide much needed fliers
for the war effort.
A handful of women were
already ferrying new planes
from aircraft factories to air
bases and embarkation ports
all over the country - men
being desperately needed
for combat duty.
If she could learn how to
fly and accumulate 35 hours
of flight experience, George
said, she had a chance to
become a WASP.
Smith immediately set
about getting the needed
credentials, even though it
meant a financial sacrifice
- lessons were $14.50 an
hour- and considerable
physical stamina. For exam-
ple, she had to hitchhike to
the airport to take flying
lessons and still hold down
her job to pay for them. -,
She learned how to fly in
an open cockpit bi-plane.
Her flight instructor was
instrumental in helping her
to her goal. He had been
offered a job flying a plane
for a radar testing company.
Instead of taking it himself,
he passed it on to her.
Monday through Friday
she worked 9 to 5 for the
phone company. Every
other minute she was on her
way to an airport, or flying


the 40 miles to the factory,
or flying the plane through
the pattern for the radar
tests. Sometimes she slept.
It took her nine months to
meet the requirements. Then
she packed a bag and set off
to New York City for an
interview. It was July of
1943.
That's when she discov-
ered she was one of 25,000
applicants. Even so, she was
immediately accepted.
She didn't, however,
immediately go to work.
She was disappointed to
discover the first classes
were already full. She was
going to have to wait until
January 1944.
She passed part of that
time herding cattle at her
mother's ranch in what is
now SpringLake - but
that's a whole other story.
Finally, she arrived in
Sweetwater, Texas, one in a
class of 137 woman who
were going to be taught
how "to fly the Army way."
They took ground classes,
flew planes and marched in
formations. But, some of
the training was, well, let's
call it basic.
For example, "On learn-
ing how to get,out of a
plane that was crashing,"
she said, "we were only told
to unbuckle the seat belt
and stand up. 'If the wind
doesn't blow you out', they
told us, 'jump and pull the
rip cord' - just not too
close to the plane."
Only 74 of the class got
their wings; Smith, of
course, included.
She shook her head at
that memory, explaining
that the general at the cere-
mony handed the women
their wings instead of pin-
ning them on as is tradition-
al. lIt seems, Smith said with
a wicked grin, he wasn't
quite sure how to handle
attaching wings to a


woman's chest.
Upon graduation she was
asked were ,she would like
to serve. Smith said any-
where but Texas. "So I was
sent to Waco," she said.
There she flew check
flights following repair
work, testing eight or nine
planes a day. She mostly
flew AT-10s - twin-engine
"advanced trainers." She
was considered such a good
pilot her commanding offi-
cer gave her the use of a
plane to fly on weekends
wherever she wanted.
In less than a year she
had accumulated 1,500 fly-
ing hours and had a com-
mercial multi-engine instru-
ment rating.
But that's where it ended.
With the war winding
down and fewer pilots need-
ed in combat, male pilots
began pressuring both
Congress and the Army Air
Corps to get their old jobs
back.
The WASPs were dis-
banded in December of
1944. When some of the
women applied to commer-
cial airlines to work as
pilots, they were offered
jobs as stewardesses
instead.
WASP official records
were boxed up, classified,
and stored away to be for-
gotten.
In 1977 when a new gen-
eration of women was
allowed to fly in the mili-
tary, the Air Force embar-
rassed itself, Smith said, by
announcing women were
flying for the first time.
That, however, led to an
awakening, culminating in
Wednesday's honors.
"The funny thing is,"
Smith said, "at the time I
was too busy to read papers
or listen to the radio. I have
to watch the History
Channel to find out what I
was living."

TODAY'S EDITORIAL

Paying for police makes more


sense than an airport in AP NEWS-SUN

it IS an emotionaUII issue, to
be sure, and one that seems
fair.
Besides, after the last
meeting in Avon Park, any-
one can see that it is one that
a lot of taxpayers have an
opinion about.
First, city taxes are better
spent on a serviceithat covers
a majority of the population,
like roads or something.
It is a fact that more people
in Avon Park have or will use
the police force in their life-
time than the airport.
Probably 99.999 percent
will have some contact with
the police department over
their lifetime. Most of that
contact will be positive, con-
structive and helpful in some
form or fashion.
Maybe 20 people 6ise the
airport on a regular basis.
That seems like a lot of tax-
payer money for a small
return to the public.
Second, a police depart-
ment is much better equipped


to tassist e generaipu Uic
when the need arises. You
can't call the airport if youi
house is being robbed - and
why would you'?
Besides, no one is on duty
at the airport anyhow. It is
pilot-run.
Not to say that those guys
who do visit the airport
wouldn't care, but getting out
of that new, over-budget, air-
conditioned FBO into the
Florida heat is not something
they want to do just because
you are missing grandma's
jewelry.
Or your car.
Or your kid.
That's not their job.
Third, if you have an acci-
dent, which happens random-
ly, then we would suggest not
calling the airport manager.
He's busy planning out where
to spend the $1.3 million that
the city budgeted for the air-
port last year.
Maybe a fountain.
There is no doubt in any-


well-traineU anU pro Iessionai
people. They do a very good
job patrolling and covering
the county now.
But there will be a cost
associated with that cover-
age, and increasing their cov-
erage to include a more com-
prehensive patrol of Avon
Park will also come at a cost.
That cost, for covering the
same area with'the same peo-
ple and equipment that the
Avon Park Police Department
utilizes, has to be pretty close
to the same as taxpayers are
now spending.
Avon Park already out-
sourced the dispatch, and the
jury is still out on the future
costs of making that decision.
Having a local police force
means that citizens feel safer,
that your kids are better pro-
tected, and that there is an
office right off of Main Street
if you need one.
People just sleep better
knowing that somehow.

Closing the gap could go
further
Editor:
Michael Wright, Highlands
County administrator, wrote each
commissioner a letter on June 30,
2009, which contains a disclosure
that the county, has a budget short-
fall of $8.8 million. His sugges-
tions to "close this gap" are this:
1. Further reducing expenditures;
and
2. Injecting cash from reserve
accounts; and
3. Raising taxes; and
4. Some combination of the
above.
This is a typical response, but
what about:
1. Stop giving away money to
the buddies of the commissioners,
and
2. Stop overpaying for services
on unlawful contracts, and
3. Eliminate county positions
that can be done cheaper by the
private sector?
I know, "... that's not the way
we've always done it...," but times
are changing.

Care helps prevent fifth
heart attack
Editor:
My husband recently spent five
days at Florida Hospital here in
Sebring. We want to personally
thank the staff in the emergency
room and the intensive care unit
for their excellent treatment of him
as a patient. Everyone behaved
professionally and with a sense of
urgency as we believed he was
having a fifth heart attack.
I want to also thank Florida
Heart Group for their watch care
over him. Dr. Wottum did a superb
job in the heart catherization lab
especially when they had to go to
plan B with my husband's heart.
We thank the Lord for preserving
John though more heart trouble but


know that He used the skill of Dr.
Torres, Dr. Wittum and the many
nurses and other professionals he
came in contact with.

An alternative for a
better life
Editor:
Let me offer an alternative that
may just not only change your
thinking in general but may even
help you enjoy your life again.
Suppose I tell you of a radio sta-
tion that you can listen to with
complete confidence that you will
not hear any commercial advertis-
ing or bad words of any kind ever.
The radio station is on the air 24
hours a day, seven days a week.
They offer a variety of real
music, noted speakers, various pro-
grams for adults and children.
In fact, this radio station is so
interesting that you may just
decide to remove the television out
of your home.
You will feel better mentally and
physically. You will learn quite a
bit and if you listen enough, you
will find your true purpose in life.
Try listening a few weeks and
see what happens.
God is good and he loves you
very much my friends. Listen to
Him! Turn to the FM dial, either
91.9 or 89.3.

Highlands Association of Realtors, Heartland

Food Reservoir plan work day at facility


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - The
Highlands Association of
Realtors (HAR) and
Heartland Food Reservoir
need help. Time and talents
are greatly needed as a
building has been leased to
store and distribute food
collected by community
partners. At 8 a.m. Saturday,
July 18 organizers are ask-
ing the public to join the
Heartland Food Reservoir at
its new facility to help with
general cleaning, knocking
down temporary, construct-
ing new walls and painting
to ready the new facility to
begin receiving food.
The building is at 225-
229 U.S. 27, just behind


Lakeview Plaza (where
Changes Hair Salon, 180-
Degree Fitness and the Bike
Shop are located) across
from Lake Jackson.
Depending on the number
of volunteers, this effort
could take several days to
complete, so if someone is
unable to make it on
Saturday, contact one of the
organizers to find out other
work days.
HAR will donate the
annual Casino Night pro-
ceeds to Heartland Food
Reservoir, as the organiza-
tion believes this is an
important cause in the com-
munity and will make a sig-
nificant difference in the
'local food pantries' ability


to feed people in Highlands
County.
Contact Denyelle Dibble
at 381-8988 or via e-mail at
denyelle 14@embarqmail.co
in to volunteer help.
The Heartland Food
Reservoir Inc., a not-for-
profit 501(c)3, was organ-
ized to establish the first-
ever food bank in Highlands
County. Currently, local
food pantries must travel
outside the county in order
to collect food needed for
Highlands County residents.
The purpose of this food
bank is to supply food to
Highlands County food
pantries, which in turn pro-
vide food to local families
and individuals in need.

Thakkar Foundation Awards


News-Sun photo by BRIANA WASHINGTON
A select group of Avon Park High School students were recognized for excelling during their school year. Assistant princi-
pal Seth Lambert stands with the winning recipients (from left) Jamie Wirries, Jasmine Hamilton, Averrie Conner, Eric
Steed, Ebonie Shannon and Brittany Bennett. In order to qualify for the Thakkar Foundation Award, the students had to
demonstrate excellence in academics and character, as well as have strong leadership skills.



Pacific Intercultural Exchange in need

of host families for exchange students


Special to the News-Sun
Pacific Intercultural Exchange is
looking for caring families to host high
school students from various countries
for the 2009-2010 academic school year.
There are few opportunities in this
world where an individual can take an
. active hand in making the world a better
place. This is such an opportunity.
Pacific Intercultural Exchange (P.I.E.)
asks local families to consider showing
one of these foreign teens what
American generosity is all about.
Students from many countries have been


staying with families all over the United
States since August, and now a new
group of international neighbors would
like to add a little more to the communi-
ty and leave with American passion,
pride and sense of values.
There is no such thing as a typical
host family. Whether you are a single
parent, retired, have small children,
teens, or no children at all, anyone can
have a great experience hosting an
exchange student.
All students are prescreened: they
speak English; have medical insurance,

-' ,.7 * *~" W *.Iw �f$ ^ ,j


and their own spending money for any
incidental costs.
All these students require is a loving
family to share their experience within
our beautiful country. Help them learn
the meaning of "Life, Liberty, and the
Pursuit of Happiness."
P.I.E is looking for host families in
this area. Those who are interested are
urged to contact Pacific Intercultural
Exchange right away at 877-534-3144.
Experience is not necessary, as an orien-
tation and support will be provided.

AAA All-Stars go .


with look of 'A-Team' I .


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING - Call it superstition, a
team unifier or a group effort to light a
spark.
All are common happenings in athlet-
ics, predominantly so in baseball.
Whereas a major league team might
vow to not shave until they're eliminat-
ed from playoff contention, there really
isn't much a group of 9- and 10-year
olds can do along those lines.
But rather than worry about stubble
along the jawline, the Sebring Dixie
AAA All-Stars looked a little higher --
to their hairlines.
"We're not really sure where the idea
came from," head coach Dean Frazier
said. "But it started among the kids.".
Where a child just breaking into the
double digits, age-wise, might formu-
late such a thought is anyone's guess,
but the impetus came from an elder.
"The kids had been planning on doing
it when, or if, they won the district,"
Frazier's wife Dawn said. "But (11- and
12-year old's coach) Israel Gomez beat
us to the punch. His team had come off


The Sebring AA (Pitching Machine)
All-Stars followed a first-round forfiet
against Poinciana, for a 1-0 win, with
an 11-3 rout of Blountstown in their
state tournament in Bushnell. The
team was to face West Seminole
Tuesday at 7 p.m. in a winners-brack-
et contest. See Friday's News-Sun for
continued results.
a rough game in their district and he
was looking to do something to spark
the team, so he got a mohawk."
And from there, the progression start-
ed - from Gomez to his son Alex to an
ever growing number of teammates -
right on down to jump starting the 9-
and 10-year-olds' preconceived plan.
There are but two exceptions to the
newest chapter of the Mr. T fan club.
One is Gabe Gomez, who, while tak-
ing summer classes, has some school
restrictions on his hair.
The other is the lone little lady among
the All-Stars, Crystal Grimaldo, who,
despite some good-natured needling
from her teammates and coaches, was

The 9- and 10-year old Sebring Dixie All-Stars chose a somewhat different look in promoting team
unity as it heads to the state playoffs this weekend - the mohawk.

of Lake Placid made a $500 donation to the Miracle League.

.Miracle League Receives $500 Donation

from Riverside National Bank


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID -
Riverside National Bank
recently made a $500 dona-
tion to the Miracle League -
a league of baseball players
that are mentally handi-
capped,
Dawn Lightsey-Zahller,
Riverside National Bank's
Lake Placid office manager
said, "It gives us great pleas-
ure to award this money to
the Miracle League," said


Dawn Lightsey-Zahller,
Riverside's Lake Placid
office manager."They really
do work miracles.
The $500 donation is the
result from their coin-count-
ing machines located in the
bank's, two Highlands County
branches.
Every time someone pours
- coins into the self-serve
machines, five cents of every
dollar converted is donated to
local non-profit organiza-


tions.
"Every penny, nickel and
dime can really add up when
it comes to supporting chari-
ties," said Zahller.
Most Riverside Bank loca-
tions throughout its ten coun-
ties have installed the self-
serve coin counting
machines.
Each area designates a spe-
cific charity to receive funds.

Red Devil alumni surge to win
By ED BALDRIDGE
Sed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK - It was
an afternoon of giving
back and looking back as
many familiar, albeit a tad
older, faces once again
took to the Red Devil bas-
ketball court.
The Fourth of July saw
tthe Avon Park basketball
program hold an after-
noon game pitting the
current Red Devil varsity
squad against an alumni
team featuring Keith
Brown, Anthony Gordon
and LeArcher Chandler,
among others.
The initial instinct to
run with their younger
foes soon caught up to the
elder Devils, as they were
staring up at a halftime
deficit.
But drawing on their
experience, the veteran
team pulled back, ran the
half-court offense and News-Sun photo by ED BALDRIDGE
clawed back in by raining Anthony Gordon drives to the basket past the outstretched
down jumpers from the arm of T.KI Miller as the Avon Park alumni came back to
outside to take the win. win the July 4 fundraisinig event in the high school gymna-
sium.

Continued from 1B
never really expected to take
that plunge.
Though there has been talk
of fashioning a mohawk wig
or cap.
As far as the team is con-
cerned, on the field of play,
once the caps cover up the
-team logo," it's been all
business the last few weeks.
. "We've been keeping them


busy," Frazier said. "They're
working hard and we're hav-
ing fun getting ready. I don't
think they've had much
chance to think about it, but
by Thursday, I imagine
they're going to be getting
anxious to get up there and
play."
Up there is to Paxton, to
where the team heads Friday


for the 12-team tournament.
Their slate begins with a
meeting against the host
Paxton All-Stars in a 1 p.m.
Saturday contest.
"This team here won the
state title in pitching machine
two years ago," Frazier said.
"But lost 'to West Seminole
last year. They (West
Seminole) are back this year,


so it should be an interesting
tournament."
Interesting. no doubt, as
the talent of this team alone
should have it in contention.
But with the unity of this
team being shown in the
players collective hair-do's -
one could say they "pity the
fool" who comes up against
them.

Stay in shape with

'passive' exercise at

H.A.L.L.O. this summer


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING,
H.A.L.L.O.'s "Passive"
Exercise Program is open
all summer from 9 a.m. to 5
p.m. Monday, Wednesdays
and Fridays. This 'Passive'
program is beneficial to
men and women of all ages
and open to everyone in the
community.
The program consists of
six tabletop machines that
do all the movement for
you. These . unique
machines are designed to
isolate and- exercise indi-
vidual muscle group areas.
They use a combination of
stretching, isometrics and
resistance to work and tone
the major muscle groups
and "trouble spots" of the
body. You get 500 to 800
repetitions on four of the
six machines.
The program not only
tones and firms, but pro-
motes flexibility, improves
posture and circulation, and
provides the physical and
mental benefits of a regular
exercise program without
the problems and injuries
associated with highly vig-
orous programs. No pulled
muscles, no stiffness, no
soreness, just a whole new


attitude about exercise. In
addition, it does wonders to
relieve the stress of every-
day living.
The recommended use is
three times a week, but just
twice per week will give
you the equivalent of doing
two hours per day of calis-,
thenics, without the danger
of doing an exercise incor-
rectly. The Passive Exercise
Program will leave you
feeling relaxed and invigor-
ated without the strain,
without the pain and with-
out the hours of strenuous
exercise.

Thyroid problems can also have several effects on your eyes


Thyroid eye disease is an
autoimmune condition in which the
patient's overactive thyroid gland
(hyperthyroidism) begins to affect
their eyes. The function of the thy-
roid gland is to set the metabolic
rate at which the body uses energy.
Increased levels of thyroid hor-
mones may lead to weight loss,
increased heart rate, and nervous-
ness. Two percent of females will
develop hyperthyroidism at some
point in life, usually between the
ages of 20 and 40.
Hyperthyroidism can also affect
infants, children, and the elderly,
although this is not as common.
Symptoms of hyperthyroidism
include trouble sleeping, fatigue,
trouble conceiving a child, frequent
bowel movements, weight loss


without dieting, increased sweat-
ing, changes in vision or appear-
aqce of eyes, and increased heart
rate. Specific symptoms of thyroid
eye disease include double vision,
light sensitivity, eyelid swelling,
decreased vision in one or both
eyes, redness of the lids, prominent
or "bug" eyes, and foreign-body
sensation due to increased dryness.
Patients with this problem tend to
stare, and not blink as often as
those without this disease.
The cause of hyperthyroidism is
multifactorial. We know that hered-
ity certainly plays a part. A
patient's immune system, age, and
sex hormones can also be implicat-
ed in the cause of the disease.
As an eye doctor, I look for criti-
cal ocular signs of thyroid eye dis-


ease in patients
with hyperthy-
roidism. When
the muscles
attached to the
eye are involved,
eye movements
are commonly
restricted. An
Focal orbital cat scan
shows thickening'
Point of the involved
Valerie Moulds muscles. If the
condition contin-
ues to go untreated, the optic nerve
in the back of the eye will become
compressed by the thickening
extraocular muscles. This Will
result in reduced color vision, visu-
al acuity loss, and visual field loss
for the patient. The optic nerve


may appear swollen on exam. This
condition requires immediate atten-
tion.
Treatment of hyperthyroidism
'consists of referring the patient to
an internist or endocrinologist for
management. Their goal is to
decrease thyroid hormones to nor-
mal levels through medications,
radiation or surgery. If allowed to
go untreated, hyperthyroidism can
lead to heart problems, difficulty
with pregnancies, and increased
risk of miscarriage. In severe
cases, it can be fatal.
The severity of thyroid eye dis-
ease will dictate different ocular
treatments for each patient. Dry
eyes due to exposure are treated
with artificial tears and ointment.
If the patient is developing eyelid


swelling, I generally recommend
sleeping with the head elevated
about 30 degrees at night.
Prominent or "bug" eyes, corneal
ulcerations, and severe double
vision may need to be treated with
oral steroids. If a patient is suffer-
ing visual loss from optic nerve
compression, they need to be treat-
ed immediately. Treatment may
consist of steroids, radiation, sur-
gery, or a combination of these.

metric physician practicing in Sebring

FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS


Sebring
Recreation Club
By Chapman Chamber/in
SEBRING - Richard
Elleson, the good shuffler, has
another first. Rich is not only
a baker, but also a good yard-
man. He and Marlene won
best lawn or yard this month.
We know who supervised the
upkeep, don't we. Rich is
doing a very good job on the
courts as well and would do
even better if he brought
Marlene with him. Rich and
Marlene no longer have the
responsibility of two homes
for they sold their old one.
I was told that Jim and Joan
Mondry are about to celebrate
their 50th wedding anniver-
sary in August. Can you just
picture getting married in
1959? If you know when in
August, please let me know
and I will try to keep it a
secret. They are one of the
club's hardest working cou-
ples and so nice.
Good news from Lakeland
on June 25 at the shuffleboard
tournament. Three Sebring
club members were winners.
Carl Wile, Wally Davis and
Anna Eldridge were winners
that day. It is always good to
see your club do well away
from home. These three play-
ers are well known among
their fellow shufflers.
June 27 finds very few for
pin shuffle. Anna Eldridge,
Ruth Parker and Nancy*
Brockelbank were the only
ladies that braved the warmth.
John Bushee, Wally Davis,
Ernie Kelly; George
Brockelbank, Rich Elleson
and Bill Gorsuch made up the
rest. Shuffleboard appears to
be taking back seat to old age,
bad health, heat arid many
other reasons.
We did have some new peo-
ple shuffling with us. Ralph
and Marcia Rhoten love ping-
pong and gave shuffleboard a
try. They were doing very
good.
Monday evening ice cream
shuffleboard found only three
ladies - Nancy Brockelbank,
Lisa LaCotti and Doris
Harvey - the rest were men. It
was very nice to have Joe
LaCotti playing with his arm
still in a cast. Roscoe is back
from wet Ohio for awhile.
If you should see a list of
names - Daffron, Ellis,
Hardy, Humble, Lindley -
what do you think that they
share in common? Some play
cards, some shuffleboard; out-
side of being a club member,


they all share the same first
name, Norma.
L & D Produce, owned and
operated by Dennis and
Lenora McElroy, closed their
doors. This is a very sad time
for Sebring and even sadder
time for many club members
who got their produce. This
was a one-stop shop that treat-
ed you as if they really cared.
I, for one, am real saddened
by this closing; it is like a
family member and good
friend has passed away. Nice
people, both Dennis and
Lenora, and we wish them
well in the future.
Wednesday evening and
line dancing as usual. Ice
cream shuffleboard with only
three brave ladies. Rain kept
some away. Find us at 333
Pomegranate Ave., Sebring,
after six p.m. on Monday,
Wednesday and Saturday.

Tropical
Harbor
By Barbara Ke//eher
LAKE PLACID - June 25
residents arrived to enjoy.
their get-together for the co-
ed coffee. and dessert. Our
coffee makers were Patti and
Dickie Blount. The doughnuts
and sticky buns were provided
by our guest speaker,. Darryl
Taylor, a phlebotomist who is
here to tell us about the serv-
ices he can provide.
George Susco, our park
manager, told the group that
the irrigation pump should be
working by Tuesday or
Wednesday, however with all
the rain that we have been
having, he doesn't feel any-
one needs to water their lawns
or plants. Since it is hurricane
season he told the residents
that his wife Jodie will be
touring the park to be sure
that driveways are free of arti-
cles that could be dangerous
in the event of a dangerous
storm.
Helen Coppock introduced
her daughter, Denise Eatun
from Dayton, Ohio, who is
visiting her parents.
. Bonnie Allen gave the
Sunshine report; she is substi-
tuting for Carol Noel who is
on vacation. She has two
sheets on the table to sign;
one is for Catherine Keller
(the daughter of Richard
Koehler), she has leukemia.
The second sheet is for Daniny
Fitzgerald, husband of Lynn
Fitzgerald who is in the hospi-
tal. She also read a thank you
note from Lorraine Garner,
whose husband, Bill, passed
away.

Marilyn Cromer told the
.group about the full day
planned for July 4. Begin with
a great pancake breakfast.
Then we will have the golf
cart parade and for your con-
venience the back of the tick-
et will give you the opportuni-
ty to vote on the best decorat-
ed carts where ribbons will be
,awarded by the public's
choice. The clubhouse will be
open for games during the
afternoon and our fried chick-
en dinner. After dinner there
will be some entertainment
and Donna Frye will provide
the piano accompaniment.
Phillip Margetts announced
that the Mustangs plan to have
their men's lunch out at the
No Frills Grill in Lake Placid
on July 16. As of this date, we
have not had any ladies make
arrangements for the Ladies
Lunch Out.
Laura Bailie led us in song
for those celebrating their
birthdays June 29 through
July 5. We all sang Happy
Birthday to Arlene Clouston
and Dorothy Deuel, who is 91
and has resided in Tropical
Harbor for 39 years, and
Darwin Seymour, who is 86
years old. She then read the
names of couples who were
celebrating their anniver-
saries, however we had no
couples present.
Mr. Taylor explained that
his program is, for the conven-
ience of the residents; many
who are too sick to get into a
car and go to a lab or doctor's
office to have their blood
work drawn. His staff can
come to your home and pro-
vide the service for a fee of
$30, which Medicare does not
pay since it is a convenience
to the client. He has gone out
to vehicles in the past when


patients came in for blood
work because they are either
too heavy to get out of the car
or they have problems stand-
ing and waiting for their
appointments. He has given
out written instructions how
to get in touch with him or his
staff. All he needs is a pre-
scription from the doctor.
June 30 Ladies coffee,
Marilyn. Cromer made the
coffee and conducted the
meeting. We had eight ladies
present. Marysue Willeke
read the Sunshine report and
had one other name added,
Melvin Potson. Please keep
them in your thoughts and
prayers. Marysue Willeke told
the ladies that her committee
is planning on going to the
Oak Room in Sebring for the
Ladies Day Lunch Out on
July 16. Check the bulletin
board for any changes.
We are happy to see that
Betty Schultz has returned
from her two-week annual trip
to her hometown of Dexter,
Mich. She attended her
Dexter High School Alumni
Reunion, which has been in
continuance since 1905. It
brought back many happy
memories. She also saw her
two daughters, Pam and
Susan, and her grandchildren.
Since last year she has tw6
more great-grandchildren.
She now has a total of four.
She also viewed the filming
of a new Robert DeNiro pic-
ture, and another picture,
"Betty Ann Waters"' starring
Hilary Swank, is being filmed
in Dexter and Chelsea, Mich.
Betty and her cousin Lon
attended a Beatles Tribute by
"Toppermost" founder Tom
Diab, the husband of Betty's
cousin and he performs as
Paul McCartney.

CLUBS & ORGANIZATIONS


Avon Park Founders Garden Club
AVON PARK - The perfectly trimmed hedge
draws your eye to the yard at 1421 Lake Lotela
Drive. Upon entering the drive, one notices artfully
designed flower beds around the front porch.
Impatiens, hibiscus, liriope, African Iris, azalea,
alamanda, desert rose, pentas, snapdragons, vinca
and peace lily share the beds. There are also three
colors of dipladenia blooming, including a beautiful
red flower.
When Dick and Mary Toth made the decision to
move from Boca Raton, they never thought they
would find what they were Jooking for. The house
on Lake Lotela-Drive turned out to be the perfect
location. Dick, who retired from Motorola
Corporation in Chicago, was becoming bored with
retirement and was looking for something to keep
him busy. His yard does just that. He has
redesigned the, landscape, planting oak trees in the
back yard and adding an arbor to walk through on
the way to the beach behind the home. He hasalso
cleared a pathway to the beach, which is quite long
with the lake level being low. There is another
hedge surrounding the back yard.
When deciding what plants to use in his land-
scape design, Dick looks for the aesthetic value a)
well as how the plant will fit with the.existing
plants. The couple enjoys the view from both the
front and the rear of the home, with Lake Lotela in
back and Pinecrest Golf Course in the front, mak-
ing it look as though it is a continuation of their
yard. Two massive oak trees estimated at more than
100 years old, also occupy the front yard.
The Toths were awarded the Yard of the Month
Award by the Avon Park Founders Garden Club

Parzygnat presented Lions Club's


Melvin Jones Fellowship Award


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - Jeanne
Parzygnat, from the Lake Placid
Lion's Club, was recently present-
ed the Lion ,Club International's
most prestigious honor, The
Melvin Jones Fellowship Award,
by past club president Dean Hess.
Parzygnat has been a valued
member of the Lion's Club for 10
years, during which time she has
participated in many local proj-
ects and fundraisers benefiting the
visual and hearing impaired chil-
dren and adults in our community.
She became a member of the
Lion's Club when, very early in
her and her husband's marriage,
they struggled to raise a legally
blind child along with two other
children. Desperate for help, they
approached the Lion's Club in
their Chicago area home town,
which immediately took them
under their wing and helped them
in many ways. They vowed then
that they would never forget, and
when they were able they would
"pay back" all the help given
them. Parzygnat now works tire-
lessly as the club's public rela-
tions and advertising manager,
trying desperately to get the word
out to others in the community
who may also be grateful of their

desire to help the Lion's Club.
This highly respected award
stands as a tribute to a growing
network of individuals who are

Folks willing to help are always
welcome to visit the Lake Placid

upon receiving a recommendation from a neighbor.
This is the last award to be given during this
Garden Club year.

TOPS Club 632
SEBRING - Leader Judy O'Boyle called the
meeting to order and after the pledge to the flag
was said, the KOPS and then the TOPS pledges
were recited by the appropriate members.
We began with our progLam, which was present-
ed by June Elam, who spoke to us about triglyc-
erides. She told us the normal triglyceride number
is 150 or less, medium-high 150-199, high 200-499
and very high is 500. A few of the health problems
that may be caused by high triglycerides are high
blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity and type 2
diabetes. She urged us to know our levels and to
take steps to lower the numbers.
Dorothy Van Howe called the roll with 30 mem-
bers present. Our net losses were higher than net
gains, with one turtle. We welcomed a new member
today, Judy Reams. Our Yes-Yeses for the coming
week are tomatoes and watermelon two to three
times and the No-No is cake. We sang "I Want To
Be At That Meeting."
The Secretary's Report was read and approved.
Shirley Rothman won the Travel Gift and Dorothy
Van Howe's name was drawn for the next Travel
Gift.
The TOPS Club meets every Monday at First
Baptist Church of Lake Josephine. Weigh-in begins
at 2:30 p.m. and ends at 3:10 p.m. The meeting
begins at 3:30 p.m. for approximately one hour. For
more information, contact Judy O'Boyle at 840-
