Typically, autism syndrome disorders, or,
as Sydney prefers, ASD, impair the ability
of individuals to relate and communicate

SEBRING - A call comes out

and tell them there are uncon-

hail of gunfire.
It's just a simulation - the
shotgun rounds are blanks - but
the officers are equipped with
Airsoft guns, modeled after their
SPD issued Glock handguns, to
take down the shooter with faux
force, in this case using small
plastic bullets, if necessary.

Right-of-way issues could

delay part of Parkway
By ED BALDRIDGE Southwell, agreed.


ed.baldridge@'newssun corn
SEBRING - Progress on
Phase II of the Sebring
Parkway could be delayed if
an agreement is not reached
between a, property owner
and the Sohring City Council
over a wall and a fence at
Center Avenue and Orange
Street.
Located at 503 Center St.,
the wall belonging to
Gingerlee Mitchelllindo was
originally built using a 1996
survey from Whitlock
Surveying, which is owned
by City Councilman Bud
Whitlock.
According to
Mitchelllindo, she placed her
wall within the survey stakes
placed originally by
Whitlock.
Her attorney, Steve


"There are a lot of prob-
lems with those plats in that
area. Every surveyor agrees
that there is going to be some
'%ariance. The question is
where is the boundary, and
where is the ownership?"
Southwell asked council.
'According to a recent sur-
vey by Whitlock, the wall is
approximately two feet onto
the right of way on Center
Avenue, and over two feet
onto the right of way facing
Orange Street.
Additionally, City
Attorney Bob swain stated
that two other surveys, one
by county engineers and one
performed by Chastain-
Skillman, also show the wall
on the right of way.

Parkway to

cost a little

more than

expected
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - County
Commissioners agreed
Tuesday to pay $76,850
more in unexpected
expenses towards the
$28.8 million Phase II
addition of the Sebring
Parkway.
According to County
Engineer Ramon
Gavarrete, who appeared
before the commission
asking for the change
order, the money was
unforeseen construction
costs incurred because of
a demand by CSX
Railroad.
According to
Gavarrete, this recent
agreement will fix the
railroad's long-standing
drainage problem by
installing storm water
inlets.
"The railroad is the ope
who requested we fix
their problem," Gavarrete
said. "We 'need permis-
sion to work in their right
of way. Through negotia-
tions with CSX 'the inlets
were requested as part of
the process."
The change order
allows for an agreement
between the county and
Underground and
Development to relocate
an existing six-inch water
line at Center Avenue and
the Parkway, which lies
within the right-of-way of
the Sebring Parkway
Phase II.
CSX would not allow
the work to be done with-
out a signed encroach-
ment agreement between
the railroad and the coun-
ty.
"Work cannot com-
mence until a CSX agree-
ment is signed,"
_ Gavarrete told the board
in response to questions
from Board Chair Barbara
Stewart.
Gavarrete said they did
not anticipate any further
changes in regard to this
intersection.
The change order set
,aside $70,800 to install an
18-idnch drainage pipe
,under the CSX tracks with
inlets and associated
drainage pipes to solve
the railroad's storm-water
flooding issues at that
intersection.
An- additional $6,050
was added to the request
in order to relocate a six-
inch: waterline which
,belongs to-Sebring.
He added that as part of
the negotiations the coun-
ty would not be responsi-
ble for maintaining the
drainage inlets.
Commissioners unani-
mously approved the
change order and unani-
mously approved the
encroachment agreement.

Special athletes raising


money for bleachers


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - Special STARS athletes,
volunteers and families have rolled up their-
sleeves to kick off a bleacher campaign.
Special STARS uses a track near Ridge
Area Arc for its cycling and track and field
competitions as well as doing outdoor vol-
leyball and other special events. There are
no bleachers at the site. In the past, Special
STARS borrowed a set of bleachers from
Avon Park High School and had the Avon
Park Youth Academy transport them back
and forth: But those bleachers are no longer
available since the school will be using them
at the new tennis courts.
Special STARS had spent the past year
searching the county for an extra set of
bleachers that are not being used but had no
luck. Even members of the Recreation and
Parks Advisory Comrmittee voted to enter an
agreement to purchase the bleachers but that


agreement has to be with another govern-
mental agency and not a nonprofit organiza-
tion. The track sits on state property that is
leased by Ridge Area Arc, so in essence the
funds would go to the state to purchase the
bleachers and then the state would own
them.
The Special STARS Advisory Board
recently voted to bypass all the governmen-
tal red tape and raise the money locally so
the bleachers would be owned by the local
athletes.
The bleachers to be purchased will have a.
safety fence in back, handrails on each side
as well. as a handrail in the middle to help
guide the elderly athletes up and down the
rows of seats. There are five rows that will
seat approximately 75 people.
The actual cost of the bleachers is $5,000
with $354 in shipping: Special STARS is

Man in fair condition

after single-car wreck


By TREY CHRISTY

SEBRING - An man
was airlifted to the east
coast for medical treatment
after he fell asleep at the
wheel and ran off the road
Wednesday afternoon,
according to the Florida
Highway Patrol.
The accident happened
just before 1:30 p.m. on
Arbuckle Creek Road just
west of Triple G Road.
Steven Cooper witnessed
the accident from only a
few feet away.
I He was headed south on
Triple G Road when he said
he saw the 63-year-old
Thomas Lawrence' 2007
Chrysler 300 veer off the
road, hit a tree, travel down
a ditch and become air-
borne on the way out.
"The car came up at least
a good five or six feet and
spun, not end to end, but
sideways," Cooper said.
The car was completely
totaled, with the passenger

One EMS worker on scene
said if Lawrence would
have had a passenger in the
car, they would be dead -
the roof was completely
smashed in on the passen-
ger side.
Lawrence appeared to be
unconscious after the
wreck, -Cooper said, so he
broke a window and tried to
get him out of the car.
"I had to punch a win-
dow out," he said.
Cooper cut his arm in the
process and wound up
being treated by EMS on
site when they arrived.
Lawrence regained con-
sciousness within 10 min-
utes, after being pulled out
of the car by EMS workers,

City waives insurance requirement for Heartland Idol


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - 'City council
members agreed,2-1 at their
meeting on Tuesday to a new
request from Jim McCullum
to waive the insurance
requirements for Heartland
Idol this season.
Councilmen John Clark
and Bud Whitlock were
absent, and John Griffin
voted against the proposal.
Citing costs- ranging from
$1,077 to $2,210, McCullum
told council that the insurance
expense was becoming pro-
hibitive for Heartland Idol,
and for any event on the
Circle, for that matter.
Griffin quipped that he
found it ironic that
McCullum, who is an attor-
ney, would ask the city to
waive the insurance require-
ment when he would be "the
first to sue the city" if one of
his clients got injured on the
Circle.
"Maybe you need to get
sponsors to help with the cost
of it," Griffin said.
"By the way Mr. Griffin,


'Citizens' taxes pay the city's insurance premiums and they
have the right to be protected.'

JOHN GRIFFIN
. , council member


we don't have a carpet spon-
sor," McCullum said, refer-
ring to Griffin's Carpet busi-
ness.
"Citizens' taxes pay the
city's insurance premiums and
they have a right to be pro-
tected," Griffin said.
The Tenant User Liability
Insurance Program (TULIP),
suggested by the League of
Cities wanted $2,210 to pro-
vide $1 million insurance for
the event.
Diversified Events
Insurance of California, issues
McCullum a quote of $1,077
for the event, which will be
held on 11 dates this fall.
At a previous meeting
McCullum, who is a member
of the Heartland Idol board,
was directed by council to

Agency.
Citing problems associated
with becoming an "insurance
provider," CRA Director Pete
Pollard told council that if
they could not provide a blan-
ket policy, but had to purchase
each policy separate for each
individual event.
McCullum then requested
that the city council draw up a
'solid policy on what kind of
events needed insurance and


asked that it be enforced for
every city park.
He added that he hasn't
thought about how that might
affect events such as wed-
dings or family gatherings at
the Civic Center.
McCullum also suggested
that the city's policy is not
specific and seems to apply
only to events in the Circle
when it should apply to all
city properties or none.


"They need insurance," rec-
ommended City Attorney Bob
Swaine.
Swaine added that he was
"an insurance guy," and said
for the size crowd - the com-
petition draws 200 to 300
spectators for each event -
there was a need to have the
extra coverage.
Council Members Scott
Stanley and Margie Rhoades
voted yes to the waiver, and
Rhodes also directed city staff
to come up with a more con-
sistent policy.
It was decided an insurance
committee would review the
city's policy and make its rec-
ommendations to the council
at a later date.

By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
AVON PARK - A pair
of arrests have been made
in the June 12 armed rob-
bery of the Avon Food
Store.
The two gunmen, Jimmy
-Ford, 19, and Malcom
McKenzie, 20, both of
Avon Park, have been
arrested for robbing the
store and threatening a cus-
tomer and employee of the
.store while getting away
-with $900 in the process.
They were picked up on
-warrants on July 29.
The men reportedly
-entered the store together,
one going to the beverage
cooler and getting a drink
'while the other went into
the bathroom.
Ford allegedly distracted
the food store clerk while
McKenzie exited the bath-
.room with a handgun and
.went behind the counter,
.demanding money while
,placing the barrel of the
gun to the clerk's head.
Reports did not state
-whether Ford was seen with
-a weapon, but while
McKenzie was allegedly

forced a customer to the
ground, telling him he had a
gun and to not move.
During the course of the
investigation, leads were
developed identifying
McKenzie and Ford as sus-
pects, the arrest report stat-
ed, and two photo. lineups
were created containing
photos of McKenzie and
Ford. The clerk allegedly
"immediately without hesi-
tation" identified them as
the robbers.
The two men remain in
the Highlands County Jail,

"Under the circum-

The training was, con-
ducted at little cost to the

A group of a half dozen


instructors came in from
the St. Lucie County
Sheriff's Office but there
wasn't a class fee - the
only cost was their travel
and meals for the two days
they were instructing.
While the News-Sun was
invited to watch the men
and women in action during
the simulation, that invita-
tion was not extended to
listening in on the class-
room instruction.
"They explained pretty
much strategies and forma-
tions to use when entering
hallways and classrooms,"
Hinkle said.
When asked to elaborate,
he passed on the question.
"They asked us not to go
into too much detail on
that," he said. "Bits and
pieces we can use in differ-
ent situations (in our daily
jobs) but hopefully we
wouldn't have to use it in
any active shooter situa-
tion."

Living with autism doesn't keep Sydney Lanier from enjoying nature. In fact she loves all
animals, even crawling bugs, but is especially fascinated with fish. Her parents, Jim and
Pam Lanier, report that is common in children with Sydney's disorder. Here she enjoys
the beach and salt water.

ble connecting to others, or
even holding simple conver-
sations, although they are
often very bright with excel-
lent memories. Thqy also are
very literal and concrete in
their thinking.
According to the Web site
www.autismspeaks.org, one
in 150 individuals is diag-
nosed with ASD making it,
"more common ,than pedi-
atric cancer, diabetes, and
AIDS combined." The site
goes on to say the syndrome
occurs in all racial, ethnic
and social groups and is four
times more prevalent in boys.
No one knows yet what
causes the syndrome, which
means there is fierce debate
on that subject.
What is known is that -
there is currently nothing to
prevent it or cure it.
There are treatments that
can help, but Pam Lanier
pulled no punches. "Autism
is not for the faint of heart,"
she said.
"It's not a secret to say
that the divorce rate is high
(among families of ASD chil-
dren), especially when you
don't understand (the disor-
der)," added Jim Lanier.
This is partly because
treatment has to be constant,
integrated into school time,
play time, family time and
meals.
Progress comes in baby
steps the Laniers said,
because children become
deeply stressed and upset
when dealing with change,
disappointment, confusion or
the unexpected and can only
adapt so much at a time.
Some children can't bear to
be touched which compli-
cates the issue and often
leaves parents feeling reject-
ed.
Emotional meltdowns are
not uncommon and always
harrowing, both for the child
and those standing by.
The Laniers spoke of hav-
ing to deal with judgmental
observers when Sydney was
having difficulty in public,
and getting a great deal of
mean-spirited advice.
But all this doesn't mean
the situation is hopeless, or
nothing can be done, the
Laniers said. There are treat-
ments that are effective, and
strategies that help.
It is critical, they said, for
parents to educate them-
selves and to get the earliest
possible intervention for the
child.
Of course, intervening
early means facing the truth
quickly - something that


isn't always easy to do.
For the Laniers, who were
first-time patents, it also was
difficult to know what consti-
tuted normal behavior.
"When she was very, very
young we thought we were
blessed because she was
quiet and behaved so well,"
Jim said.
It was when Sydney joined
a few other toddlers in a pri-
vate day-care setting (Jim is
the music minister for the
Union Congregational
Church and Pam is a special
needs teacher with the school
district) that her parents dis-
covered their daughter didn't
want to play with others or
share her toys.
"At first you want to
believe the good things,"
Pam explained, "you grasp at
reasons."
At the same time she had a
gut feeling that something
was wrong.
The Laniers took Sydney
to a pediatrician when she
was about three and then to
Al Children's Hospital, com-
ing away witli the truth, feel-
ing crushed and over-
whelmed.
'"Pam and I knew nothing,"
said Jim.
Worse, they found it diffi-
cult to get any information.
They persevered in their
research, however, learning
about applied behavior analy-
sis - based on B. F.
Skinner's work in behavior
modification - and speech
and occupational therapy.
They were blessed, they
said to be one of 15 families
accepted into an experimental
program run by the Celeste
Foundation in Mount Dora.
Unfortunately it was a grant-
ed project and has since been
shut down.
The family spent a week
living on the campus, Jim
and Pam learning how to '
teach Sydney, and Sydney
beginning to learn how to
cope.
Many of the methods the
Laniers learned work well
with all children, and even
adults.
For example, warning that
something is about to happen
and then counting down to it.
Giving a choice in.a situa-
tion. "Do you want to sit in
the red chair or the blue
chair," when the object is to
get Sydney to sit down.
Providing a reward for a
wanted behavior, called the
"first and then" approach -
"first brush your teeth and
then we'll read a book."
The Laniers also feel
blessed that Sydney is main-

landing direction, at an altitude of
approximately 100 feet above the
ground. He then initiated a rapid pull-up
and small radius turn to complete the
landing.
"The airplane impacted airport prop-
erty in a near vertical attitude ,.. Several
individuals stated that the non-standard
landing maneuver was not unusual for
the pilot."
Smoak had taken Maehr up for a


Light to locate a bear wearing a tracking
collar. They had been flying for about a
half an hour before coming in to land.
Smoak, who was 33 at the time of the
accident, was a highly respected mem-
ber of the community and a leader in the
citrus industry.
He was inducted into the Florida
*\iriciulhtre Hall of Fame in February
2009 in honor of his achievements.
The Highlands County branch of the
Farm Bureau created the Mason G.
Smoak Award in his memory. The award
recognizes an individual as a friend of


Florida agriculture every year.
Tom Andrews, president of the Farm
Bureau at the time of Smoak's death,
said this at that time, "Mason was a man
who could see through and around prob-
lems. He was as comfortable making
ice-cream at Ag-Venture as he was pick-
ing up trash, or testifying before
Congress in Washington D.C.
"He was the kind of person we should
aspire to be."
Smoak left behind his wife Tracee,
and three young children, Gabe, Landon
and Ellie.


streamed at school. They
praise her teachers and com-
pliment her classmates.
Sydney is a difficult friend,
they said, yet she has endear-
ing qualities on which her
classmates focus.
In fact, the love Jim and
Pam have for their daughter
radiates from them.
"Since her birth she brings
joy to everyone," Jim said.
"She makes people smile."
"She experiences the
world differently," Pam said,
adding Sydney has taught
them to see in a new light.
"She brings things to my
attention I wouldn't have
noticed, because she pays
such close attention to detail
and is so observant. She has
an unmatchable imagination
that won't quit."
Finding help for a child
with autism is difficult
everywhere. Currently occu-
pational, speech or similar
therapies are not covered by
most insurance although leg-
islation to change that is
pending. Finding profession-
als with experience also is
difficult, especially here in
Highlands County.
The Laniers warn that no
single treatment protocol is
enough in itself, the syn-
drome poses a variety of
problems many of which
have to be addressed individ-.
ually.
In their experience Sydney
has responded best to a high-
ly structured setting and con-
stant re-enforcement,

EDITORIAL & OPINION


News-Sun * Friday, August 7, 2009


As manager of Florida's
fish and wildlife resources,
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) is diligent in, protect-
ing native species, and habi-
tats. When an exotic species
invades our natural land-
scape, it is our duty to do
everything possible to ensure
those invaders do not expand
their range and harm the
fragile balance of Florida's
unique and abundant
wildlife.
The Burmese python
threatens that balance in the
Everglades. A non-venomous
constrictor, it preys on
native Florida species of
mammals, birds and reptiles.
The appetite of the Burmese
python poses a serious threat
to some of Florida's already
endangered species. For
example, Burmese pythons
have eaten Key Largo
woodrats, a federally endan-
gered species.
We must do everything
possible' now to stop its
spread into other areas. To
that end, we began a python
permit program on July 17
as a way to manage this
unwanted species effectively.
Under this program, the
FWC hand-picked seven her-
petologists to receive per-
mits to go on specific FWC-
managed lands and search
for all Reptiles of Concern,,
including the Burmese
python, and euthanize the
snakes. We chose experts
who know how to handle
these large reptiles.
Furthermore, we require the
python be killed on site to
ensure that none of these
snakes escapes into other
areas.
The permit holders may
use hand-held instruments to
kill the pythons but, under
the current program, they
may not use firearms or
traps. Again,. the profession-
alism of these permit holders
ensures that the pythons are
disposed of quickly and effi-
ciently. The scientific data
collected from these pythons
will assist FWC biologists in
learning more about this
predator in the Everglades.
And every time a python is
destroyed, it means there is
one less python slithering
through the wilds of Florida.
The American Veterinary
Medical Association pro-
vides a laudable set of objec-
tives for euthanasia of ani-
mals in laboratory and,
research settings. However,
these objectives are not
always practical in the wild.
The AVMA's objectives are

guidelines, but are not
mandatory.
The FWC has been com-r
mitted to preventing the
spread of nonnative species
throughout the state. In
January 2008, the
Commission approved
revised regulations for non-
native and captive wildlife
that require anyone owning a
Reptile of Concern to be
3 permitted through the FWC.
We define a Reptile of
Concern as a reptile that has
habits that may adversely
affect the environment or
may be a threat to public
\ safety. Reptiles of Concern
must be licensed by the
FWC to be kept as a pet. The
license costs $100 per year
and mandates specific caging
requirements. Reptiles of
Concern more- than 2 inches
in diameter must be implant-
ed with a microchip that
identifies the animal.
It is unlawful to allow
these exotic pets to escape or
to release them into .the wild.
The FWC holds Nonnative
Pet Amnesty Days through-
out the year so people who
can no longer keep or care
for a nonnative pet can bring
them to us for adoption by
licensed recipients. We have
made every effort to ensure
that no more of these
pythons are allowed to
escape into the wild.
Our python permit pro-
gram is just the beginning.
We are working with ,
Everglades National Park,
the South Florida Water
Management District, the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service and others on this
problem. How the pythons
are disposed of is not the
issue; how we work together
to solve a problem is. All
groups -, nonprofits, govern-
mental and private - should
be working toward one goal
in the case of the Burmese
python in the Everglades,
which is their eradication
from a place where they do
not belong.
The FWC's main responsi-
bility remains to reduce pop-
ulations of a problematic
species to minimize impacts
to native fish and wildlife,
their habitats and to resi-
dents of Florida.

Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.

was thrown from a car into the back lot


at Big-T Tire.

The explosion rattled win-
dows in the area and prompt-
ed multiple calls to 911.
The power of the device
was enough to leave a small
hole in the ground.'
In an article by News-Sun
staff writer Ed Baldridge
appearing Sunday, Avon Park
police Sgt. Jake Brantton was
quoted as saying, "It turned
out to be nothing more than a
prank and fireworks."
The owners of Big-T
decided not to press charges;
neither are the police.
Here's our problem with
this outcome - three indi-
viduals, from two separate
incidents, face felony counts
and years in jail in the event
of conviction - for allegedly
creating terrorist threats by
delivering, or sending,
envelopes containing a white
powdery substance meant to
be taken for anthrax.
But in both cases, the pow-
der was perfectly 'harmless.


No one was ever at risk.
In the case of the powerful
firecracker, however, there
was actual damage done to
property, and someone could
easily have been hurt.
So why then is the perpe-
trator of the bomb hoax going
scott free, while the individu-
als supposedly behind the
anthrax hoax' may spend the
rest of their lives behind
bars? ,
What kind of message does
that send?
It's not all right to scare
people with baking powder,
but it is OK to scare them
with gunpowder?
Now don't misunderstand
- we are not saying the per-
petrators of the anthrax hoax-
es should go free. What we
are saying is that the perpe-
trator of the bomb hoax
should not.
We agree that the incon-
venience and expense of the
anthrax scares were great -


e
;e
�V


grave.
Terror is terror, no matter
the source.
In the case of the firecrack-
er, which is illegal in the first
place, someone could have
easily gotten seriously hurt.
This is why, if it isn't
already too late, we hope the
criminal justice system
reconsiders its choice and
makes an example of the
bomb thrower among us.
We think a paying fine and
serving a number of commu-
nity hours would be fair and
appropriate.
Granted, making an exam-
ple of the two men accused in
the "April Fool" anthrax
scare didn't make an impres-
sion on the woman accused
in the second incident -
some people need the train to
hit them before they'll see it
coming --but doing nothing
in the case of the firecracker
incident sure won't do more
to discourage any other idiot.
In fact, doing nothing
makes another such act all
the more possible.


Instant, total gratification
Editor:
One of the persistent viruses in the
American psyche is the expectation of
instant, total gratification in virtually
all aspects of our culture. Whether it is
disappointment with the slow success
of a military campaign or attacking the
speed of governmental effort to repair a
problem in our economy, the expecta-
tion of instant, total gratification lurks
as a subliminal element of our ability
to evaluate a problem. Unless evidence
of success is quickly and .dramatically
apparent the tendency is to declare fail-
ure and urge abandonment of the effort.
Critics of the stinriulus-bill pro-
nounced it a failure de.pire the fact that
only 10 percent of the funds have been
disbursed thus far and the original
expectations was that no dramatic
changes could be expected for 12 to 18
months. Underlying this criticism is a
neo-con desire to disparage government
efforts in order to weaken the adminis-
tration, without regard to whether their
efforts damage the country or their
charge is well founded.
The expectation for instant, total
gratification is, a by-product of the
seduction of the 'American consumer
into gratifying their desire by utilizing
borrowing and easy credit to acquire
commodities and goods beyond their
ability to pay. Everyone could acquire a
big house, an expensive car, a fancy
wardrobe. Borrowing and credit cards
the path to instant, total gratification.
Why not then expect similar results
from.government? And if such results
cannot be achieved, then those in
charge must be doing something wrong,
some defect in the plan, the wrong
direction, otherwise success should
have been achieved at once.
Although the unreasonableness of
expectations in our private lives has
begun to come into focus with mount-
ing debt and foreclosures government
is still expected to achieve instanta-
neous solutions to large problems'.
The Republican opposition is quick
to declare failure, sometimes even
before a plan is implemented or fully
developed. Prophets of doom whose
only concern is to create failure for the
administration in order to reacquire
control of government, they point to
the fact that instant, total success has
not been achieved as proof that their
efforts to frustrate the administration
were both correct and virtuous.
Until we reacquire the ability to
withhold judgment until a reasonable
time has elapsed we will permit our-
selves to be seduced by this destructive
kind of thinking.

status quo, these candidates were a
shoe-in and then there were the blacks
who are still struggling with the past,
but I am pleased that we do have some
who do not let color be a factor which
is a place we all need to be.
It is true that change is inevitable,
but some things 'can not be improved
upon. When I was in school, if you
became pregnant, your education was
over. Now we encourage it by making
it possible for them to maintain a place
away from their parents, providing for
their livelihood. The more children, the
larger their check, becoming a way of
life. I don't know of any taxpayer who
wants to contribute to this kind of liv-
ing.
We have the feminists who are trying
to prove we don't need husbands -
just marry whoever and maybe not at
all. The family has suffered quite a
blow. This kind of living defies God's
plan, but when we work with Him,
everything will continue to improve.
His plan is our foundation and can
never be improved upon, without
which, we will not prevail.
Then there are those who want to
live like the Joneses without work or
sacrifice, buying things they cannot
afford and many times don't even need.
The rest of us are paying for all these
things. This is not the American way of
life and when we come to depend com-
pletely upon the government we are
also going to be under their domination
with them making the decisions for us.
This is Communism, a miserable life
without freedom. Our forefathers
fought for the freedom we enjoy, but it
didn't come without a price. I pray we
never lose sight of what they did for us
and we build on that premise. As these
dear souls began seeking the
Almighty's holy will, God gave them
the wisdom to develop our Constitution
which has become a blessing to us for
many years.
I'm praying that our Congress will
give serious consideration and much
prayer before voting on our Supreme
Court judges. They are there for life
and we need those who will uphold our
laws and not try to change them. God


gave these ancient men wisdom
because their freedom had been jeop-
ardized and they made many sacrifices
to establish this nation. Let us do all
that is within our power to build upon
what they have begun. Freedom is
priceless, something we might not miss
until it's gone. God forbid that should
ever happen.

This is one of the most courageous
men I have ever known.
I try to figure out why any person
would have had to of gone through
such an ordeal. He was put through a

His faith in God, people, the judiscle

As hard as it may seem, he has come
through this whole ordeal with no bit-

This special person and I believe I

not be completed.

Special athlete overcomes injury to keep bowling


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - A recent
broken foot did not stop
Special STARS athlete Owen
Barnhill from doing the one
sport he loved more than any-
thing - bowling.
Approximately two
months ago, Barnhill, of
Sebring, had broken his foot
and had to wear a special
boot designed to allow his
broken foot to properly heal.
Realizing his favorite sport
was about to start, Barnhill
was determined to keep on
bowling at Royal Palms
Bowling Center.
With the help of a ramp, he'
could still be involved in the
sport even though he could
not physically take the
approach and throw the ball
with a three-step stride like
he did last year.
He also had to drop from
bowling on a team to just
doing singles because of his
injury.
Although it was frustrating
to use the ramp, he managed
to maneuver it to' where he
could knock down some
bowling pins.
Barnhill watched his 105

Trophies were presented Saturday, Aug. 1, to seven top bowlers in Special STARS during
the County Games at Royal Palms Bowling Center. Winners are (seatedin front, from left)

average from last year drop
down to 32 while trying to
figure out how to use the
ramp.
� He did not like the device
and was determined to try
throwing the ball by standing
still near the foul line.
"I hate that ramp," Barnhill
said.


It took practice, but after
three weeks of training he
was able to go from 32 pins
to his highest score ever at
133.
The boot came off the last
two weeks and he continued
to throw from the foul line to
avoid any further injury.
His top score of 133


pushed his average to be 91
at the end of training - a 59
pin improvement from the
time he started this season
until the time he finished.
This score made him the
winner of the Most Improved
Bowler award for Special
STARS.

Sebring sluggers settle



for third min Series


Coutrtey photo
Jordan Baker went three innings Wednesday morning, holding Alabama to one run while
hitting a home run of his own, in the World Series win over Alabama.


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@nei s sun corn
The booming bats. of the
Sebring Ozone All-Star
squad had one more big
inning left in them, but it
wasn't quite enough in
Wednesday night's 12-8 loss
to Texas, ending Team
Florida's drive to the World
Series Final in Texarkana,
AR with a third-place finish.
"We just ran out of gas,"
head coach Israel Gomez
said. "The calls weren't
going our way and the
Georgia coach told me we'd
need to beat them with our
hitting. We did get seven runs
with: two out in the fourth,
but we just came up short."
By the time that fourth-
inning touchdown , was
scored, however, Sebring was
looking up at a 10-0 deficit
and Texas was eyeing an
early finish,
The comeback was staged
with a dose of small ball, as
opposed to the three-game
long-ball spree the team had
been on.,
Alex Gomez opened the
fourth with a single, but was
replaced on the base on
Jordan Baker's fielders
choice.
A strikeout for the second

out made it look like this
might be another scoreless
inning to end it by the mercy
rule.
But with this Sebring
squad, one never knows
when the lightning is going
to strike.
Jacob 'Cram came through
with a single iand Brandon
Ferretti drew a walk to load
the bases.


Jonathan Struck singled in
one, and Connor Cook drove
in two with a base-knock to
make it a 10-3 contest.
Luis Martinez worked a
walk to load them up again
and two-run singles by J.C.
Cobb and Alex Gomez plated
three more to cut the margin
to just 10-7.

Sebring claims third in Dixie Ozone World Series


Continued from 1B
Cook held Texas scoreless
in the bottom of the fourth
and Sebring added a run in
the top of the fifth to add to
the suspense.
Cram was hit by a pitch to
start it, moved to third on a
passed ball and wild pitch
and came in on a Struck
ground-out.
But Team Texas broke
through for two more insur-
ance runs in the bottom of the
fifth and Sebring just didn't
have anything left in its' last
at bat.
"I don't even have the
words to describe this experi-
ence," Gomez said. "There
are so many little things that
I'll be remembering for
years. After our loss in the
first game, nobody expected
us to last this long, but we
eliminated three teams and
had a real good run.
"We told the kids to be
proud of what they did," he
concluded. "We left Florida
as champions and we'll be
coming home as champions.
Third place in the .World
Series, that's quite an accom-
plishment and I couldn't be
prouder."
Wednesday morning win
The Sebring bats have
come alive at the Dixie
Ozone World Series and thus
far it's keeping the teams'
chances alive.
- "Ever since that first game
loss, our bats have woken
up," head coach Israel
Gomez said.


'We left Florida
as champions
and we'll be
coming home as

champions.'

ISRAEL GOMEZ
Sebring head coach
That first game was the 7-4
opening-game loss to South
Carolina, but since then, the
Sebring Sluggers plated 38
runs in their ensuing three
games, including Wednesday
morning's 10-6 topping of
Team Alabama.
Four home runs were hit in
the contest, three in the
seven-run first, as Team
Florida continued its' theme
of big innings.
Alex Gomez walked in the
home half of the first after
the Dothan Southern squad
had taken a brief 1-0 lead in
the top half.
Baker then reached on an
error, putting two on for
Brandon Ferretti's three-run
shot two outs later.
Jonathan Struck then stung
a single before Connor Cook
went deep for a daily double
dinger.
Luis Martinez -kept the
inning going by earning a
walk and J.C. Cobb launched
one skyward to bring in two
more for the 7-1 lead.
The second inning went
scoreless before Sebring
added a run in the third with
Ferretti singling, stealing

World Series in Texarkana, AR.


second and coming in on
Cook's single.
'Bama started to creep
back into it, scoring three in
the fourth, cutting the lead to
8-4, but single Sebring runs
in the fourth and fifth extend-
ed the lead to 10-4 with
Baker cranking yet another
home run and Martinez
bringing Ferretti in with a
single.
Two late runs were added
in the top of the sixth, but it
was too little, too late as
Alabama was sent packing in


this elimination game.
"We've got Texas tonight,"
Gomez said Wednesday
afternoon. "'They beat,
Georgia 5-4 and are still
undefeated. This is it, if we
win this one, we go to the
championship, but if we lose,
we're done. We have to win
this one."
Sebring takes slugfest
Tuesday evening, the flood
of scoring kept coming in a
15-10, slugfest win over
Rustin, Louisiana with five
separate Sebring swingers hit


home runs.
After a combination of
walks and singles plated two
in the first, J.C. Cobb and
Jacob Cram went back-to-
back in the second to stake
Sebring to a 4-0 lead.
Louisiana came back to cut
the lead in half with two of
its own in the bottom of. the
second and then took a 6-4
lead with four in the third.
But with this Sebring
bunch, there's always the
potential for a big inning, or
two, as shown by the twin

An interesting thing happened with the Sebring All-Star squad as they represented the state, of Florida at the Dixie Ozone World Series in Arkansas. The
winner of the 25/75 raffle that the team held, Major Shirley Johnson, returned the winnings to the team and asked the players to make posters to sup-
port the troops and take a picture for her. Johnson's son, Seargant Justin Williams has done several tours of duty in Iraq. Pictured with the team outside
their Texarkana hotel, left to right, is Seargant First class Savage, Staff Seargant Heckman and Seargant First Class. Dunn from the 2/313th Landing

six-run innings against
Texarkana.
That scenario again played
out with a five-run fifth and
six-run sixth to blow the
game wide open.
Cobb lead off the fifth with
a base on balls and was
moved up a base on an Alex
Gdmez single.
Both runners came in on
Jordan Baker's three-run
blast before Easton Davis
was hit by a pitch, Brandon
Ferretti singled and both
moved up on a wild pitch.
Struck singled Davis home
and Ferretti came in on a
Connor Cook ground out to
push the lead to 9-6.
Louisiana scratched for
one in the bottom of the
frame, but the six-run spot all
but put it out of reach.
It started again with a % alk,
this time to G6~rez. with
Baker then singling and Forde
hitting a three-run jack.
Ferretti then walked with
two out, Struck singled him
to second and Cook hit his
second home ru.Ly as many
days, the secdnr.three-run
shot of the inning to make it
15-7.
Three Rustin runs would
come across in the bottom of
the sixth, their last gasp at a
comeback to avoid elimina-
tion.
But a last gasp is all it
would be as Sebring soon
slammed the door shut.

'"Travel With Jesus Until You
Continued on page 6B


We are on vacation!
Finally, some much needed
R&R. This past Sunday, my
husband, Luke, was asked
to preach at a church that
his dad worked at for eight
years back in the 1980s. He
preached on the storms of
life, and I began to think of
the beginning of our trip.
I'm not complaining,
because we have enjoyed
this trip so much, but there
are some things that hap-
pened that we could have
let spoil our trip, but chose
to enjoy the journey
instead.
The night before we left
we stayed at my sister-in-
law's. She was going to
'take us to the airport the
next day. That night our 2-
year old woke up at 2 a.m.
with a night terror that last-
ed about 45 minutes. A
night terror is when a child
can't wake up and just
screams and screams. We
turned the light on, and I
held him close. Finally, he
woke up and quit crying.
He went back to sleep,
but woke up every hour
after that and cried for a
few seconds and then
would fall back asleep.
Needless to say, we didn't
sleep that well. It wasn't
until the next morning that-
I realized he had bitten his
tongue and had a sore the


Timeless
Treasures
Jamie Knickerbocker
size of a pencil eraser on it.
For the next three days he
didn't eat or drink almost
anything. I tried Orajel, but
I couldn't get anywhere
near his tongue with it.
, So you can imagine how
a three-hour flight went,.
not to mention the continu-
al grumpiness for the next
few days.
When we arrived in
Wellington, Ohio, we expe-
rienced something totally
awesome ...trains. Ninety
trains go through this town
every day, even in the mid-
dle of the night. That night,
every time the train whistle
blew Paul would wake up
screaming and jump intb
our bed. This happened
every hour.
Now we had two sleep-
less nights under our belt.
The third day of our trip
we headed off to Niagra
Falls. Twenty miles down
the road the road our vehi-
cle quit working. We wait-
ed on the side of the road
for an hour, and then at a
nearby gas station for
another. Finally, Luke
returned with a rental car:
Luke used the verses
from Psalm 107 in his ines-


sage. Verse 29 and 30 say,
"He maketh the storm a
calm, so that the waves
thereof are still. Then are
they glad because they be
quiet: so he bringeth them
unto their desired haven."
Although we didn't under-,
stand why our vacation
started like it did we knew
that God was in control and
that he would see us
through.
We still have a few days
left of our trip, but we have
already seen so many bless-
ings that far out weigh the
"storms." To name a few:
Paul's tongue is completely
healed, and he is eating as
much as his dad; he also
loves trains now, "Come on
train" he loves to say; and
we now have a nice RAV4
rental to drive around.
God fulfilled his promise
in Psalms 107:30. We are
glad because the storms are
quiet, and God has brought
us into our desired haven.
As the saying goes, "When
life throws you a lemon,
make lemonade." God will
bring you through!
