SEBRING -- The Highlands
County Lake Denton Committee
attempted to meet on Thursday at the
Bert J. Harris Jr. Agricultural Center
to receive a management plan that
could lay some of the controversy to
rest.
Although 16 people were in atten-
dance. Counts Commissioner and


Committee Chair Don BaiAt declared
that not enough votingg members were
in attendance, so a quorum %was not
present.
The committee needed just four
voting members, but only two were
present at the start of the meeting.
and one other member arrived about
30 minutes into the meeting.

Russell K. Danser, senior environ-
mental consultant with The Phoenix
En\ironm'ental Group. was presented
to the committee, but no action was
t' aken due to the lack of a quorum.
Since the purpose of the report was
to prepare' a document in connection
to the official business of a public
agency to communicate and formal-
ize knowledge, the News-Sun
attempted to acquire the document


prior to the meeting. The News-Sun
was informed by, Danser and
Highlands County Public Information
Coordinator Gloria Rybinski that the
report was not a public record.
Danser denied access to the record
and originally claimed that the docu-
ment was "not ready for the public."

Positioned for takeoff


Avon Park Jet Center
has a bright future,
local officials say
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.itifley@newssun corn
AVON PARK - Airports are compli-
cated entities, safety issues being critical
and their managers having to answer to
official agencies at every level of gosern-
ment. I
It can take years to institute changes.
and there are times when federal mandates
trump local decisions.
For example, even if the city wanted to
close the Avon Park Jet Center - which it
does not - it cannot do so. That is
because the airport has received federal
grants in the past, which means it is offi-
cially classified as an obligated airport
and therefore must stay in service until 20
years from the date of the last grant
received.
In addition, because the airport was
mostly built 'with federal money and then'
passed 6n 'to the pity, it also is classified
as a surplus airport. That means by statute
it has to remain an airport in perpetuity.
Local leaders involved with the jet cen-
ter and working on its future, unanimous-
ly speak to its value as an asset, especially

Airport got its start during Depression


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
ciristophier.nitfley@newi'Asun.com
AVON PARK - Ironically, Avon
Park's airport was born during the
Great Depression, the direct result of
President Frankln Roosevelh's "New
Deal".
Money provided by, the ,Civil
Works Administration, which was the
first of the president's attempts to put
men to work, funded the initial clear-
ing of property to create a landing
field inAhe fall of 1933.
Workers were paid 40 cents an hour
and guaranteed a 30-hour week.


Federal funding to complete the
airport arrived in 1935.
According to the Avon Park Times,
the field would be grubbed and then
graded. "after which it w ill be har-
rowed and sown to grass.
"This will make the port one of the
finest in the state and planes will be
able to land and take off with the
wind in any direction."
The airport was operational by
1936, but didn't open formally until
1939.

FORT PIERCE - St. Lucie
County Commissioner Chris
Craft Thursday launched his
campaign for the U.S. House
of Representatives in
Florida's 16th Congressional
District.
"I'm running for Congress

Representative who has

working
Flo1ridians
and can
relate to the
people oof
this district."
Craft ! said.
"If we are Craft

solutions to our communi-

we need an' independent
voice in Congress who won't
hesitate to question his
party's leadership and work
with both Republicans and
Democrats to get the job

to hold insurance companies
accountable or investing in
long-term job creation,
renewable energy and sus-
tainable agriculture, I will be
the moderate voice that the
people of this district want
representing them in

Pardee Roberts an AP pioneer


Continued from pae 1IA
itself.
Those connections, by
the way, run deep, dating
all the way back to the
1920s, when she and her
family moved here from
Maryland.
Her uncle, Stephen
Colquitt Pardee Sr., was the
lawyer for the Glenada
Hills Land Development
Co., with the land located
where South Florida
Community College now
sits. He persuaded Mary's
father, Charles H. Pardee,
to accompany him to
Florida to serve as the audi-
tor for the company.
"Those were boom times
in Florida," Roberts said,
"but then came the
Depression and the boom
was over. The company
collapsed."
Her uncle then opened
his own law office in Avon


Park and was later joined
by his son, Stephen
Colquitt Pardee Jr.
Her father became editor
and publisher of the Avon
Park newspaper, with the
Depression still going
strong. "Money rarely
changed hands," she says.
"We'd sometimes trade
advertising for groceries."
Her brother and sisters
have also contributed to the
local scene. One sister,
Laura Neubauer, had been
an active member of the
historical society, frequent-
ly writing columns about
the society for the papers.
The other sister, Margaret
Stewart, operated a dress
shop on Main Street in the
1930s. And her brother,
Charles "Buck" Stanbury
Pardee, retired from the
Highlands County school
system.
Roberts graduated from
Avon Park High School in


1939 and then it was off to
college. "It was expected of
me," she said. She first
graduated from Stetson
University in Deland, then
onto Emory University
Library School in Atlanta.
While waiting to attend
Emory, she spent several
months back in Avon Park,
working in the post library
at the Avon Park Bombing
Range.
After graduating from
Emory, she worked for 20
years in the library at the
University of Florida. In
1961, she moved to Fort
Lauderdale to work in
Broward County's junior
college, retiring in 1975
and returning to Avon Park,
with three cats and two
dogs.
Why come back to Avon
Park and why does she like
it so much? Her answer is
simple: "It's my home,
town."


Avon Park Airport born during

field would be grubbed and then graded,
"after which it will be harrowed and sown
to grass.
"This will make the port one of the finest
in the state and planes will be able to land
and take off with the wind in any direc-
tion."
The airport was operational by 1936, but
didn't open formally until 1939.


In January of 1938 the airport hosted its
first air show, which featured simulated air
battles, parachutists and acrobatic flying.
Several thousand spectators turned out for
the event.
In March of that year the first hanger was
built as a Works Progress Administration
project, another New Deal stimulus plan.
During World War II a private civilian
contractor created the Lodwick Military
Academy, which trained flyers for the war
effort. It was at that time the landing field's
surface was clayed over.
By 1969 there were three concrete run-
ways and one building (what is now Classic
Caladium), but no taxiways or hangers for
small craft.
Now there are.
For decades the airport remained a sleepy
backwater.

of the Depot Museum in Avon Park, and Walt
Pierce, a barn storming pilot based at the air-
port, who provided the research for this article.

Lake Denton plan released to public


Continued from page 1A
Law does not allow "works
in progress" to be listed as an
exemption.
The Government in the
Sunshine Manual, produced
by Florida's Office of the
Attorney General, clearly
states "There is no 'unfin-
ished business' exception to
the public inspection and
copying requirements."
In an additional e-mail,
Danser declared that since he
was a "volunteer" the report
for the committee was his
property until he wished to
turn it over, but when asked,
did not site an exemption
from Florida Statute 119 to
support his claim and ignored
further requests via e-mail.
According to Danser's e-
mail reply dated July 19,
"The draft plan I'm working
on is being done by me,
strictly as a volunteer for the
Lake Denton Committee
(LDC). I am not a member of
the LDC and have produced
nothing for the committee in
the way of a draft manage-
ment plan."
Rybinski also stated that

Danser to turn over the docu-
ment.
Rybinski had not returned
an e-mail inquiry as to if she
had asked Danser for the doc-
ument or not.
Initial requests about
Danser's employment status
shows that he was hired by
the county in April 2009, and
according to his personnel
file, is paid more than $38
per hour for county projects.
The management report's
executive summary states
that it proposes a long range
management approach to the
access road and natural
resources associated with
Lake Denton.
Specifics for the plan call
for Florida's Board of
Trustees of the Internal,
Improvement Trust Fund to
take "quiet title action" on all
submerged lands, allowing
the state to regulate Lake
Denton.
Danser also recommended
that 'the county not "take fee
simple title to any submerged
lands within Lake Denton at
this time."
Management and daily
care of the lake access road
site, according to Danser's
report, should be turned over
to the adjoining Lake Denton
Camp. A fee schedule for
public access should be cre-


ated, and that "fees collected
will be considered payment
to the Lake Denton Camp for
managing the lake access,"
Information provided by
the Web site states that the
"Lake Denton Camp is a min-
istry of Lake Denton
Management Inc. LDMI is a
group of men and women
committed to sharing the
gospel and touching lives
through God's love."'
Florida's Constitution
Article I,. Section 3 reads in
.part that "... No revenue of
the state or any political sub-
division or agency thereof
shall ever be taken from the
public treasury directly or
indirectly in aid of any
church, sect, or religious
denomination or in aid of any
sectarian institution."
' Danser's plan additionally
included local resident con-
cerns that, "It is the opinion
of many homeowners around
the lake that inadequate lev-
els of law enforcement exist
at the lake access road site.
However, no adequate data
exists concerning illegal
activity at this site."
Bates suggested that since
there was not a quorum,
another meeting should be
scheduled for Sept. 24 at the
same location to further dis-
cuss the report.

Destroying productive capital is always a

sidelines the used car business, some-

Another argument against the program
is the debt it is creating.Since the pro-
gram stipulates buying a new car, it is
creating more debt and not encouraging a

like saving before spending, when every

more time Republicans will have to

without any health insurance, some-
thing is better'than nothing.
On another note: What is it with
the Republican desire to back los-
ers?
Recently it was with George
Bush, whose lack of understanding
national and international problems
are clearly spelled out in "Family
of Secrets" by Russ Baker. Bush
was chaperoned by Richard "Dick"
Cheney, a man famous among
Washington D.C. dinfier table com-
panions fqr his ability to drink a
glass of water while quoting
Hermann Goring out of the side of
his mouth. Bush quit the Texas
National Guard to avoid going to
Viet Nam. He graduated from Yale
University with a low C average ...
Now they have Sarah Palin,
another loser.
Sarah Palin's Education
Background: Palin attended Hawaii
Pacific College in Hilo, Hawaii, in
1982 for a semester, where she
majored in Business
Administration, and transferred in
1983 to North Idaho- College for the
1983-1984 school year. Then she
transferred to Matanuska-Susitna
College in Alaska for one term
before transferring back to the
University of Idaho the following
year where she finished out her col-
lege education and received a
Bachelor of Science degree in com-
munications-journalism from the
University of Idaho in 1987, where
she also minored in political sci-
ence.
Is this person smart enough to be
the President? What academic


background does she have? Did she
study economic theory, govern-
ment, business, sociology, interna-
tional relations, foreign relations,
law, or anything that even pertains
to running our country? A minor in
Political Science is her sole educa-
tional qualification.
In an interview with Charles
Gibson, ABC NEWS' Good
Morning America Palin was asked
what were her views of Russia,
meaning their political position
under the leadership there.
PALIN: We have to keep our
eyes on Russia.
GIBSON: What insight into
Russian actions does the proximity
of the state give you?
PALIN: They're our next door
neighbors. And you can actually see
Russia from here in Alaska.
Brilliant!
Compare the above with
President Obama's education: After
graduating high school from
Punahou School in Hawaii, Barack
Obama attended Occidental College
for two years, then got his B.A.
from Columbia University. He later
got his law degree from Harvard
Law School (where he became the
Harvard Law Review's first African
American president), graduating
magna cum laude. Obama was also
a lecturer of constitutional law at
the University of Chicago Law
School.
Campaign finance documents
show the Republican Party spent
more than $150,000 on clothing and
accessories for Palin and her family
at a series of swank department
stores, the sort of places that "Joe
Six-Pack" could not afford. "She's

There is a huge inventory glut of new

program are the stockholders of the car
manufacturers.
Nope, C4C is not a solid stimulus pro-

American 'worker' will
not accept same old deals
Editor:
Will our tax dollars be used sav-
ing foreign interest or saving the
United States steel industry and all
heavy industry, which is the "batk
bone of America's defense.
We all know that the global eco-
nomic downturn is upon us. The
United States is now officially in a
recession, unlike other recessions
that our nation has faced in many
decades. Every segment of the
economy is seriously affected,
industrial production, housing,
automotive, construction and the
financial sector, wholesale and
retail sales, the entire spectrum.
Many economists believe that we
are in the midst of the worst reces-
sion since World War II, more so
than the 1920s and 1930s.
Economies around the world have
also .deteriorated with slowing
economies and huge levels of
unemployment. U.S., Steel produc-
tion has declined dramatically. The
steep decline in steel production
follows the sudden drop in the
Stock Market. Steel mills in the
United States dropped to 49 percent
of capacity, that's alarming,
because U.S. steel mills were near
100 percent in August. The domes-
tic steel industry has not had oper-
ating levels as low since the 1980s.
For manufacturers, the economic
downturn was a complete surprise.
Manufacturing fell to a 26-year low
in November. The Wall Street
Journal reported that U.S. industrial
output will be its worst quarter
since 1980. Consumer confidence is
at the lowest level since the govern-
ment's index measuring was started
in 1967, consumer spending, which
represents 70 percent of the Gross
Domestic Product (GDP), plunged
in the third quarter of 2008 - and I
might add, the first such drop in
two decades. The American taxpay-
er must demand that the "Bailouts,"
the use of tax dollars "only" be
used in our domestic markets and'
the rebuilding of America's infra-
structure. The steel in all infrastruc-
turing as well as "all" products
should be of American products not
foreign. The American Chamber of
Commerce and many other organi-
zations have been going out of the
way to destroy the American work-
er. The American worker is watch-
ing the new administration very
closely and will not accept the
"same" old trade deals.

Big, plans for Avon Park airport


Continued from page 1A
because air transportation
generally is undergoing a
revolution and they feel Avon
Park is poised to take advan-
tage of the future, even
thought the current recession
has created setbacks.
For instance, because fly-
ing commercial carriers is
expensive and time consum-
ing, many businesses, even
small ones, are flying their
own planes.
Richard McKenzie, who
owns Florida Aircraft
Services at the airport, and
has an agreement with the
city to function as the jet cen-
ter's operations manager, .said
a Dollar General store had
recently opened in
Frostproof. The point, he
explained, was that the exec-
utives in charge of that
expansion-had traveled to the
area on'a private plane and
used Avon Park as their base
of operations.
This type of private flying
.is becoming more and more
common, McKenzie said.
particularly with developers
and larger retail chains.
Additionally, according to
the Federal Aviation
Administration, Florida is
home to the second largest
number of pilots in the coun-
S.try, 48,244 (as of Dec. 2007).
Only California has more.
This means, airport boosters
say, there is a real potential
for expanding the airport's
general aviation business.
Currently the airport is
home base for 64 single-
engine planes, 12 multi-
engine planes. three jets and
*one helicopter. It averages
about 600 flights a year,
\about a third of which are jet.
traffic.
McKenzie cited a pilot
from Lake Wales who recent-
ly moved his plane to Avon
Park because it was less
crowded and provided better
*service.
He also said a jet used in
-iie transportation of organ
transplants ha, begun using
Avon Park instead of the
Baitow uirport.when travel-
ing through the area.
1 think the airport is an,
asset to the city," said John
Barben. chainnan of the
Airport Advisory Committee,
and the Community
Redevelopment Agency's
Airport Advisory Board.
"People get hung up on the
idea that (the airport serves) a
rich man's hobby, but it can
be an engine for economic
development, a hub for
freight and a way to bring in
disaster supplies in the event:
of a hurricane."
One of the dreams, Barben
added, is to install a school
for aircraft mechanics, hope-
fully in partnership with
South Florida Community
College.
The long term goal is to
turn the airport into a major


AP airport
got start as
'New Deal'

project
Continued from page 1A
In January of 1938 the air-
port hosted its first air show,
e which featured simulated air
battles, parachutists and
acrobatic flying.
Several thousand specta-
tors turned out for'the event.
In March of that year the
first hanger was built as a
Works Progress
Administration project.
another New Deal stimulus
plan.
During World War II a pri-
vate civilian contractor creat-
ed the Lodwick Military
Academy, which .trained fly-
ers for the war effort. It was
at that time the landing,
field's surface was clayed
over.
By 1969 there were three
concrete runways and one
building (what is now Classic
Caladium), but no taxiways
orhangers for small craft.


Who is in charge of

what at the Jet Center


� By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tufflcv@new.ss,'t. .com
AVON PARK -
Responsibility for the man-,
agement of the Avon Park
Jet Center is divided among
three entities - two indi-
viduals and one company.
However, because the
airport is currently owned
by the city, the city manag-
er and the city council also
have a say in its direction,
operation and maintenance
standards.
C.B. Shirey has the title
of airport manager.
He has the ultimate
responsibility for
everything to do
with the airport.
Currently he .has
been tasked with
guiding the cre-
ation of an airport Shi
authority. That
would make the airport
independent of the city, but
involves a complicated
process- that includes
approval from the state leg-
islature.
Shirey is doing a feasibil-
ity study and researching
the various steps involved.,
In addition, as manager
he keeps track of all federal
and state grants ,in
progress.
Richard McKenzie, who
owns ,Florida Aircraft
Services 'at'the-.airport and
other assorted businesses
in both Polk and Highlands
counties, and is a member
of the Community
Redevelopment Agency's
Airport Advisory Board, is
the jet center's operations
manager. :
He is responsible for col-'
lecting hanger rents and the


sern ice center, the %a)-sita-
tion of choice for planes
passing through, and home
for freight lines and corporate
jets.
Already three businesses,
Highlands Aviation, which
rcl'rbishe. aircra.t.
N Ken/ i e's jet services
which provides fuel and
mechanics, and Samuel
Poole's Poole Industries,
which repairs radios and
opposing engines, provide a
wide variety of services.
Barben said the pressures
on the citrus industry Ind the
number of groves surround-
ing the jet center that could
be re-zoned, including
acreage along U. S. 27,
meant there is room for the
growth of industrial business.
"When you look at the maps,
it makes sense," he said.
The fact that the existing
infrastructure at the airport
can already handle jet traffic,
he said, also helps.
Barben said that grant
money was available to build
more T-hangers, so why not


day-to-day maintenance
and operations of the jet
center, including gates,
hangers and landscaping.
McKenzie's relationship
to the airport and city is a
rare one.
In 2007 he bought the
Flight Base Operation busi-
ness from Ben Hill Griffin.
It is much more typical
for the airport to own those
services - especially the
fuel operation - but
McKenzie owns the ffel
pumps and 'equipment,
while the city owns
the buildings.
The third entity
with responsibilities
is Wilbur-Smith, an
engineering consult-
ing company con-
tracted to be respon-
rey sible for the design,
permitting, bidding,
inspecting and evaluating
of construction. The com-
pany's role is almost exclu-
sively technical.
The division ot manage-
ment labor is not without
controversy.
In.a move that has raised
questions, McKenzie and
the city agreed to a contract
in April 2009 that allowed
McKenzie use of city owned
hangers free of charge in
return for being operations
manager.
Samuel Poole 'of Poole
Industries, also at the air-
port, has filed a complaint
with the Federal Aviation
Authority .because, Poole
said, the offer was made
exclusively to McKenzie -
there was never .a bidding
process - in contradiction
to FAA policy, which calls
for equal treatment.


%pend it. The fact that CRA
funds could be used for fhe
local matching portion in
gaining grants, nYeant the city
wouldn't have toiput up
money. He quickly added,
however, that "tax payers
have to remember, they might
not be off the hook for cer-
tain projects."
The current effort to create
an Airport Authority also will
protect the city in that the
airport will become its own
entity with its own budget.
Barben also envisions
retail opportunities within the
jet center along State Route
64, but he warns that these
changes are still decades
away.
He doesn't want people to
get discouraged in the mean-
time,.
"Look at Sebring." he said.
"They were one loan away
from being bankrupt. Mike
Willingham has turned that
thing around. Look what he's
done for the tax base, and
he's still creating jobs for the
people in the county,..." -

shows that it was built in 1940, just one year after the Avon
Park airport officially opened.

AVON PARK - Turnabout
is fair play, just as turnover is
the junior college way."
So while the slew of fresh
faces on the 2009 edition of
the South ' Florida
Community College volley-
ball team might require more
program sales to get used to
the new names, it'snot some-
thing head coach Kim
Crawford, isn't used to.
"It's not unusual to have
this much turnover," she said
of the 10 new players set to
join her two returning sopho-
mores. "We're always going
to have the changes but it's
maybe more visible here:thai
for baseball or softball since


we have a smaller roster."
And after a tough season a
year ago, the wholesale
changes could very well be a
blessing.
"We didn't really mesh
well' last year," assistant
coach Charlotte Bauder said.
"We had a whole bunch of
leaders and not enough fol-
lowers."
So the talent was there, but
the all important meshing and
chemistry didn't quite come
to fruition, which is a key
part of Crawford's eye
toward recruiting.
"We look at player's abili-
ties, of course," she said.
"But we really look at how

:Not quite
While he has, for the
most part, been as sharp,
open, charming, profes-
sional and entertaining as
can be. we've been seeing
some slips from LeBron
James in recent months.
From his pouty, less-
than-classy exit from the
playoffs to allegedly
directing a tape of him
being dunked on during his
basketball camp to be con-
fiscated. James hasn't
exactly been endearing
lately.
In interviews Friday,
many Cleveland fans might'
be adding on to this recent
odd behavior with his
statement that he wasn't '
going to accept the
Cavalier's contract exten-
sion and would test the"-
market in free agency after
next season.
I don't fault him for that
at all - that's just a shrewd,
business decision so as to
get a good \ iew\ at what
else might be out there.
Of course, under NBA
rules, his current team is
the one team that can offer
the most money to him. so
it's not all about the money
,-and for that I give him ;'
credit.
- Maybe he'll be looking
to see how the Knicks or
Nets or Clippers are shap-
ing up. both in personnel,
direction and salary cap
room.
Not just for him. but for.
other potential free agents
that could join him in
vying for a championship.
.'After all, he has stated
he wants to become the
first team athlete to be
worth more than one bil-
lion dollars, and marketing
opportunities to that end
would likely be enhanced

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne
in the massive media cen-
ters of New York or Los
Angeles.
So that whole aspect of
things I give him kudos
and credit for.
But I'm still somewhat
surprised that he A) stands
by his high-tailing it out of
the arena after losing the
playoff series to the Magic
and B) still hasn't said ,
much of anything, about the
'dunk tape' scandal.
Regarding the playoff
scenario, he stated that he
was wrong to skip Out on
the mandatory media ses-
sion, but doesn't regret at
all leaving the court with-
out congratulating the
Orlando players.
He said, at the time, he
doesn't think it makes
sense to give credit to
someone that just beat you
and that it doesn't mean
he's a poor sport -
although that is basically
the literal definition of a
poor sport.
One might have been
able to say, it was a heat of
the moment, he was
bummed, frustrated and
upset and his emotions got
the better of him.
Can't really say that
now.

Sebring AAAs getting VIP

treatment at World Series


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
Even before the first pitch of the
Dixie AAA World Series in Laurel,
MS, the Sebring All-Stars represent-
ing the state of Florida have discov-
ered some allies and received pleas-
ant surprises that have made the trip
a memorable one already.
Staying with host families, it was
soon discovered that a houstin,g moth-
er was a University of I loiili pdrahlu-
ate.
"She'd been wanting to host our
team from the start," Dawn Frazier,
wife of team head coach Dean
Frazier said via e-mail. "Her family
made us banners and posters too."
And there was more.
"The dad of the family works for
the (Laurel) police department,"
Frazier continued. "And they took all
our kids to the opening ceremony by


'We're really getting
the VIP treatment
.i here.'

DAWN FRAZIER
Sebring AAA momn
police cars, We're really getting the
VIP treatment here."
From former Gators to police
escorts, the kids earning their trip to
the World Series has already had
some hidden bonuses,
But then it was time to get down to
business as the team faced Team
Louisiana Saturday night as they vie
toward piogre'si- i at least as far as
their 'O'Zone brethren's third-place
finish in Arkansas this past week.

New faces already have


a familiar feel

News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE
Head coach Kim Crawford stresses the importance of passing for this year's team, giving
Ricid Albritton some pointers on positioning, so as to better set up the offense for setter
Alisha Hoffman, below left, and big hitters like Sydney Klemp, below right.


Continued from 1B
they interact with their
coaches and parents. And
how their coaches ant par-
ents interact with them to see
what they're going to be like
on a team and what they'll be
like to coach. How receptive
they'll be to learning new
things, how they'll accept
constructive criticism."
And while the players
brought in have fit what
Crawford seeks in that
regard, one never knows if
that click will happen - but
there are early indications
that the atmosphere will be a
very supportive and commu-
nal one.
"The parents support has
already been unbelievable,"
she said. "It helps that we
have four local kids (Ricki
Albritton from Sebring,


'Ifeel so much
better about what
I have on the
court right now.'
KIM CRAWFORD
SFCC head coach
Melissa Tullo of Avon Park,
Kaneisha Hamilton of Lake
Placid and Kalee Schlabach
from Arcadia), but even those
from a distance have been
around a lot, asking ques-
tions, helping out and giving
support. Jessica Singewald is
from Port St. Lucie and her
parents were at every game
last year, same with Casey
Driscoll's parents from
Riverview."
And the familiarities don't
stop there.
"Our transfer. Alisha
Hoffman, her dad was the
coach at Fort Sumter,"
Crawford continued. "So I've
known him my whole coach-
ing career."
The atmosphere and sup-
port seem to be in a good
place, so now it's a matter of
taking the positives to the
court where, again, the talent
and athleticism seem to be in
abundance.
A towering line of hitters
sees five Lady Panthers in
the 5-foot-9 to 6-foot-I
range, showing the strike


force of the offense, and
blocking ability of the
defense, is in good hands,
The question then is in get-
ting the digs And passes to
bolster the defense and get
the offense started.
"Being *a coach, I'm
always going to critique,"
Crawford said. 'Right now
we have a setter (Hoffman)
who can get the job done and
another working very hard
(Albritton) to be able to.
They key will be our passing.
Our blocking will be better,
but it's critical that we get
our passing down to put the
setter in the best position."
Which is what the practice
season is all about, to work
on those things that will lead
to a successful season.
One week in,. things are
looking up as the team has.

Too little humility and unwritten rules


Continued from 1B
And the whole tape thing,
the one bit I heard him sAy
in regards to that was just
that he's been dunked on a
few times, but that "the ratio
of me dunking on someone
and being dunked on - you
could multiply it by 50."
Even ini retrospect, when
all the pundits have said it
was a great marketing oppor-
tunity, a chance to laugh at
himself, a potentially fun,
silly, feel-good story -he,
can't let it go without getting
defensive.
We all know he's a phe-
nomenal player. and until
now, I always kind of
thought that maybe his part
in the confiscation of the
tapes might have been
overblown.
That answer though, when
he could have laughed it off
and just said, "hey, the kid
got one on me," instead of
"yeah, but I've dunked on
WAY more people than have
dunked on me,"' kind of
gives you the impression
that his role in it was not
overblown at all.
James said Friday that
he's excited to have
Shaquille O'Neal as a team-
mate this year, that he's
humbled to have the chance
to play with one of the best
in the history of the'gamie.
" 5, ,. , ,


Had he shown any humili-
ty in other recent events, I
wouldn't have had this to
write about.
In another area where'
some athletes don't seem to -
get it, the big brouhaha
between the Brewers and
Dodgers the other night has
me wondering What has hap-
pened to the "unwritten
rules" of baseball.
You might have seen the
clip of Milwaukee's Prince
Fielder getting hit by Dodger
reliever Guillermo Mota in
the ninth inning of a 17-4
Los Angeles blowout.
Mota, apparently, was
retaliating for Brewers
reliever Chris Smith having
plunked Dodger slugger
Manny Ramirez ii the sev-
enth inning.
So far, kind of good.
See, part of the 'code' of
the game is to back your
teammates up, they drill one
of our guys, we nail one of
yours.
But what started it is what
is murky.
Why was it that Ramirez
got hit by Smith's pitch?
It seems it was because
Manny had hit a home run in
his previous at bat - huh?
Sure, some players can
show up a pitcher, an oppos-
ing team, by posturing, pos-
ing for a good long while


after they know they've tat-
tooed one.
And that is part of the
unwritten rules - guy shows
you up, he's going down.
, But while Ramirez might
not have exactly put his head
down and quickly rounded
the bases, it didn't seem he
showboated too much so as
to show up the Brewers,
It seems he was hit the
next time up just because he
hit a home run.
There's an old saying that
the best revenge is to. live
successfully.
If a guy gets the best .of,
you, then get the best of him
the next time.
Out-do him, out-perform
him, do better' against him
next time than you did the
last time.
Just because he beat you
out, fair and square, and did-
n't gloat about it, doesn't
mean you go and smack him
like that crazed Irish guy
going around and whipping
guys in the back of the leg
for not "thinking with your
dipstick, Jimmy."
Once again, some of these
unwritten rules might need
to be written down.

SENIOR SCENE


Home cooking for seniors a pressure. cooker of stress for caregivers


Special to the News-Sun
Adult daughters - who typ-
ically serve as home cooks
for seniors - are feeling the
heat in the kitchen, according
to a recent study of family
caregivers. The stress is espe-
cially high for adult children
who are caring and cooking
for someone with several
nutritional risk factors.
In response to this issue,
Home Instead Senior Care
has partnered with national
nutrition experts from the
University of Maryland and
Duke University Medical
Center to promote healthy,
stress-free grocery shopping
and meal preparation tips- and
recipes for the approximately
8,600 households in
Highlands County caring for
seniors.
At the center of this public
education campaign is the
Cooking Under Pressure
handbook that is available
free through the local Home
Instead Senior Care office. A
specially-designed Web site,
www.foodsforseniors.com,
provides additional informa-
tion, research and resources.
Research recently conduct-
ed for Home Instead Senior


Care revealed that providing
care for an older person with
three or more nutritional risk
factors is tied to increased
stress levels in family care-
givers. Of the caregivers who
- rated their lives as extremely
stressful, 67 percent were
caring for loved ones with
three or more nutritional risk
factors.
Adult children reported the
top three nutritional risks as:
* Three or more pre-
scribed or over-the-counter
drugs per day.
* An illness or condition
that made the senior change
his or her diet.
* Having lost. or gained
more than 10 pounds in the
past six months without try-
ing.
Local senior care expert
Brad Beatty, owner of the
Home Instead Senior Care
office serving Highlands,
Hardee, and Polk counties,
said that risks associated with
conditions such as medica-
tion use and illness can nega-
tively impact seniors' health
and independence as they
age. "Good nutrition is, in
fact, the first line of defense
in helping to keep seniors


rn-f)WO- tRH


healthy and independent," he
said.
Experts advise stressed-out
family caregivers to get
organized by creating a shop-
ping list so their seniors reg-
ularly have healthy ingredi-
ents (see the 12 Staples Your
Senior Shouldn't Live
Without), collect interesting
recipes and ensure their sen-
ior has the companionship
they need to shop for gro-
ceries and make mealtimes
enjoyable.
Beatty added that compan-
ionship is one ingredient that
family caregivers shouldn't
leave out of a senior's meal
plan.
"So many seniors are alone
or lonely. If you can't be
there to shop for groceries or
eat with loved ones, consider
a congregate meal site - such
as a senior center - or a com-
panion to help encourage
older adults to develop the
kind of nutritional habits that
will keep them healthy and
give you peace of mind."

Cooking Under Pressure
handbook, call the local

12 staples your senior shouldn't live without


They may seem like common staples for
any healthy diet, but the following 12
foods hold special nutritional value for
seniors. These items, from Home Instead
Senior Care developed in cooperation with
nutrition experts at the Duke University
Medical' Center and the University of
Maryland, are also versatile enough to be
used in a variety of recipes.
1. Oatmeal - A great source of soluble
fiber, oatmeal has been shown to help
lower blood cholesterol and may reduce
the risk of heart disease and stroke.
2. Eggs - With only 75 calories per serv-
ing, eggs contain 13 essential vitamins and
minerals, including vitamin D, important
to absorbing calcium needed for bone
strength. Lutein and zeaxanthin found in
egg yolks may reduce the risk for cataracts
and help prevent macular degeneration.
' 3. Yogurt - Rich in calcium, yogurt can
contribute to the calcium requirement
needed to prevent osteoporosis. Good bac-
teria is added to some yogurt, which may
help people with digestive problems that
often accompany aging. Mixing yogurt
with fortified cereal provides added vita-
mins, including vitamin B12, which many
seniors have difficulty absorbing from
foods that naturally contain that vitamin.
4. Blueberries - These blue beauties are
among 'the top fruits and vegetables for
antioxidants. Research on aging and
Alzheimer's disease reveals that blueber-
ries may also improve memory and coordi-
nation.
5. Apples - The benefits of apples are
too numerous to name. The pectin in'
apples supplies galacturonic acid to the
body, which lowers the body's need for
insulin and may help in the management of
diabetes.
6. Fish - Bluefish, mackerel, salmon,
sardines, trout and tuna (bluefin and -alba-
core) are a low-fat, high-protein source of


nutrients. The American Heart Association
recommends fatty fish twice a week to
improve heart health.
7. Chicken - Poultry is an excellent
source of protein that contains less fat than
most meats. Chicken, especially breast
meat, contains half the fat of a steak.
Chicken also has niacin and selenium,
which possess cancer-fighting properties.
8. Broccoli - A good source of multiple
nutrients including vitamins K, C, E, B,
and calcium and iron, broccoli has been
found to protect against cancer, heart dis-
ease, stroke and macular degeneration.
9. Soy (Edamame) - Nutritionists rec-
ommend consuming up to one serving a
day of soy as a replacement for foods high
in saturated fats. Some studies have shown
that soy improves bone health. Be sure to
consult your doctor before adding soy to a
senior's diet.
10. Sweet Potatoes and Squash'- Sweet
potatoes .provide beta carotene and vita-
mins C and E, all of which promote
healthy skin, hair and eyesight. Squash is a
good source of beta carotene and vitamin
C.
11. Rice - As a complex carbohydrate,
rice digests slowly, allowing the body to
utilize the energy released over a longer
period, which is nutritionally efficient.
Rice has low sodium content and contains
useful quantities of potassium,, the B vita-
mins, thiamin and niacin. Rice contains
only a trace of fat, no cholesterol and is
gluten free, so it's suitable f6r people with
celiac disease.
12. Dark Chocolate - Consurmed in mod-
eration, this high-calorie, htigh-fat food has
been found to "boost HDL cholesterol
(known as good cholesterol) and lower
blood pressure.

Please note: Always consult a doctor before
beginning any diet or nutrition program.

can give rise to specialized

ARTS & LEISURE


'Smokey Joe's'

to open at

HLT Aug. 21

By CATHY J. SCHREIMA
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Smokey Joe's Caf6
opens at the Highlands Little Theatre
on Friday, Aug. 21. The show runs
through Sept. 6 and includes many of
the rock and roll standards written by
Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller.
The 1995 Tony Award winning
musical marked more than 2,000 per-
formances on Broadway,and closed
on Jan. 16, 2000 making "Smokey
Joe's Caf6" the longest running musi-
cal revue in Broadway's history.
Co-directors of HLT's show are
Jennifer Westergom and Melanie
Boulay. The production is- sponsored
by Cohan Radio Group and Home
Depot.
Boulay said, "Jerry Leiber and
Mike Stoller, as much as anyone, vir-
tually invented rock 'n' roll, and now
their songs provide the basis for elec-
trifying entertainment that illuminates
a golden age of American culture. In
an idealized '50s setting, the classic
themes of love won, lost and imagined/
are brought to life in nearly 40 of the
greatest songs ever recorded."
: Westergom said, " 'Smokey Joe's .
Caf6' is a fantastic '50s and '60s
musical revue of the songs of Leiber
and Stoller. We are thrilled to be
directing such an exciting show."
The directors say there is no plot,
just extremely .powerful performers


singing the glory of the '50s in
America one song after another.
"If there is one thing that can
describe that era, it is certainly the
music. The songs written by the duo
are strung cleverly together, featuring
wonderful choreography and come-
dy," Boulay said.
The show's songs include "Poison
Ivy," "On Broadway," "Yakety Yak,"
"Charlie Brown," "Hound Dog,",
"There Goes My Baby," "Love Potion
Number Nine," "Spanish Harlem" and
"Treat Me Nice" among many other
classic favorites.

AP Library showing movies on Saturdays


Special to the News-Sun
AYON PARK - The Avon Park Library will host the
following movies at 2 p.m. on Saturdays during the month
of August
Aug'. 15 - "On the Beach," directed by Stanle) Kramer
in 1959, 133 minutes. As the post-apocalyptic. nuclear
cloud drifts down the globe toward the Antarctic. Australia
faces the inevitable; An American nuclear submarine
searches parts of the northern hemisphere for life. The
story is one of lo.e and longing in the face of death.
Gregory Peck, Ava Gardner, Fred Astair and Anthony
Perkins acquit themselves effectively in this bleakfilm.
No rating.
Aug. 22 - ;"Lil"' Abner," directed by Melvin Frank in


1959, 112 minutes. Using most of the Broadway cast, this
perfectly delightful musical, has been sad I neglected so
it's resurrection time! Filled with % ondei ful songs and the
delightful romp of the Sadie Hawkins Day Race this musi-
cal of one of the .all-time great- comic strips is sure to
delight all ages. .
Aug. 29 - "Unforgiven," directed:by Clint Eastwood in
1992, 127 minutes. Eastwood returned to the western
genre with a bang in this brutal and raucous 'tale of a for-
mer gunman turned farmer who needs to confront the vio-
lent sheriff (Gene Hackman) of Big Whiskey. For those
who love violence, this is for you. Rated R for violence
and language.


White-winged doves

make their home here


Welcome to our roost!
About a half dozen white-
winged doves use our oak tree
in the back yard as a roosting
and loafing area. Their con-
stant "hooo-hooo-ho-hooo,"
or "who-cooks-for-you," calls
can become.quite annoying,
especially when those calls
start before dawn. However,.
most of the time we accept the
calls as an announcement to
another great day here in
Highlands Count.....
We have iound that the'
white-winged dove (Zenaida
asiatica) will not tolerate
native mourning doves at our
feeders. This non-native bird
has found the south western
United States and southern
Florida habitats to its liking.
Quoting now from "Florida's
Birds," "Early records of
White-winged Doves in
Florida were of birds shot by
hunters in the Florida Keys.
Band recoveries indicated
these birds came from Texas.
In the late 1950s numerous
captive doves from Mexico "
being raised in Homestead
were released and these now
have spread throughout .the
Miami area. In the early
1970s the Florida Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission
captured several hundred of
these and released them at.
various locations as far north
. as Lake County. This species
will probably continue to
increase and spread in
Florida."
Large, white wing patches
and long tail highlight an oth-
erwise drab, grayish plumage.

laid and incubation is by both
sexes; by female from mid-
afternoon through the night,
with 'the male taking over
most of the day. The incuba-

The young are tended by
both parents. Their down is
mostly replaced by feathers in

young will leave the nest at
13-16 days and begin flying at
about 15 days. When the
young are safely flying, the
adults may breed again.

Native firebush is a must have for butterfly gardens


What if I told you
that there is a beau-
tiful native plant
that attracts hum-
mingbirds and but-
terflies and will
perk up a drab, tired
looking landscape?
Native firebush is a
wonderful choice
for accomplishing News
these goals. T
The plant is con- Wate
Ssidered a must-have C
for most butterfly orine
gardeners because of the
ample source of nectar with-
in its beautiful blooms.
Songbirds will also be .
attracted to the plant because
of the berries it produces.
It's a great choice for anyone
wanting to plant native and
still have all these benefits.
Considered a nearly
"trouble-free" bush that pro-
duces beautiful, orange-red
flowers, firebush is a great
addition to most any garden.
It is a subtropical plant and
does not like the cold weath-
er very much. If frost or a.
freeze occurs, the 'plant will
usually appear to die, how-
ever in reality the plant is
most likely alive and will
resprout in the spring. It is

considered low
maintenance and is
adapted to local
Florida soils and cli-
mate.
For best bloom-
ing results, the plant
should be in full
sun. It will grow in
shade or partial
shade, but may
become somewhat
"leggy" without the
benefit of the sun. In
sunny, well-drained


soil locations, the plant will
give the maximum amount
of blooms; In-shady loca-
tions, flowering will be
reduced. If planted in the
shade, the growth will
become open and almost
vine-like.
Firebush is native to cen-
tral and south Florida ham-
mocks and open disturbed
areas. It is a fast-growing
evergreen shrub that can
grow to heights of 6 to 12
feet. The leaves have red
veins and the stalks of the
plant are also red. The one-
inch-long tubular flowers are
found in clusters. The small
berries begin as green, turn
to yellow, then to red and
finally to black. They are a

source of food for many
birds. The plant will have
berries or flowers year
round.
Hummingbirds and but-
terflies love the nectar of the
attractive, tubular flowers.
The blackened berries that
the plant produces are a
favorite of cardinals. In


addition to being an animal
attractor, the plant can take
the heat and drought. It is an
excellent choice as a back-
ground for lower growing
plants.
Firebush is just one of the
many native plants that will
be offered at the Air Potato
,Exchange Day on Jan. 9,


2010. The project is being
paid for by a grant from
Florida Exotic Pest Plant
Council - Kathy Craddock
Burks education grant. The
$1,000 received for the grant
will pay for hundreds of
native plants that will be
provided by Lord's Farm
Nursery in Lake Placid.


Each person that brings in a
bag of air potato bulbs will
be given a free native plant.
This series of articles is
intended to familiarize you
with the selections that will
be offered.
At least four workshops
on air potato will be offered
between September and
December of this year. The
intent of these presentations
is to familiarize you with air
potato and the harm that it
causes in our neighborhoods
and environment.
If you are interested in
these upcoming workshops
and receiving your free
native plant, watch for local
advertisements and articles
op the program or call 402-
6545 for more information.,

Chiropractic care may help children
with ear, sinus infections


Special to the News-Sun
An article published in
Proceedings, a respected
journal of the Council on
Chiropractic Pediatrics of
the International Chiro-
practors Association,
reports the case study of an
8-year-old female patient
suffering from recurring
headaches and chronic ear
and sinus infections,.
The child had been
through repeated rounds of
antibiotic treatments and
sinus surgery. Even the
extreme procedure of two
tympanectomy surgeries to
one of the child's eardrums
failed to alleviate her con-
dition.
"Children are often
plagued with sinus and ear


conditions," said Sebring-
based chiropractor Dr. John
Pepper.
The patient underwent
chiropractic care, including
spinal adjustments. After
one month of such care,
child and parents noted an
absence of headaches, and
sinus and ear pain had also
decreased markedly. As a
result, the planned third ear
surgery was cancelled. The
patient's sEMG scans
showed improvement, but
chiropractic care was con-
tinued. After four months,
the patient reported that
headaches had ceased and
that ear and sinus infections
were absent. Her sEMG
scans and x-rays were at, or
near, normal.

AVON PARK - Central
Florida Health Care Inc.
joins the rest of America's
more than 1,200 communi-
ty health centers in kicking
off National Health Center
Week 2009 (Aug. 9-15).
The theme, of the week,
"Where Access and Quality
Care Begin," highlights
health centers' roles as
"health care homes" for
some 18 million people in
America, providing pri-
mary and preventive care
and a range of services.
CFHC serves 34,317
patients in the tri-county
community each year - a
number that is increasing
due to layoffs and cutbacks
during the economic down-
turn. Health center patients
pay on an income-based
sliding fee scale; no one is
turned away, regardless of
insurance status or ability
to pay.
"Everyone should have
the choice of a community
health center as their health
care home," said Gaye
Williams, chief executive
officer of Central Florida
Health Care. "We provide
high-quality services that
emphasize primary care
and wellness so that fami-
lies can stay healthy and
out of hospitals. National
Health Center Week is a
time to spread the message
that we need to invest in an
accessible and affordable
community health system
that can reduce disparities,
improve health and achieve
cost savings."
Events marking National
Health Center Week 2009
include health fairs, media
events and visits by local,
state and national leaders to
health centers in their com-

munities.
The spotlight comes at a
time when the American
Recovery or Reinvestment
Act, or the federal economic
stimulus bill, has made
increased access to care pos-
sible. Community health
centers were among the first
recipients of stimulus fund-
ing; $338 million in so-
called increased demand for
services grants will enable
health centers to provide
quality care to an additional
2.1 million patients over the
next two years.
Long-term, health centers
are envisioned as a major
part of the solution for pro-
viding care to the 60 million
people in the United States
who are - according to a
report by the National
Association of Community
Health Centers - medically
disenfranchised.

Special to the News-Sun
FORT MYERS- Just
three weeks after
EMBARQ and CenturyTel
finalized their merger, the
new company, which will
be known as CenturyLink,
is showing its support for
communities within its
combined 33-state operat-
ing territory with a nation-
wide food drive.
CenturyTel and EMBARQ
employees from Gig
Harbor, Wash., to Naples,
are collecting food this
week to help benefit those
in need in the communities
where they live and work.
"CenturyLink not only
brings together two compa-
nies with industry-leading
capabilities, it also unites
two corporate cultures that
share a strong commitment
to the many communities it
serves," said Dana Chase,
regional vice president.
"This food drive is just the
beginning of our ongoing
community support."
The "Together We Can"
company food drive begins
today to mark EMBARQ
and CenturyTel coming
together as a leading com-


munications company dedi-
cated to serving its cus-
tomers across the country.
The food and money col-
lected will be taken to local
food pantries for those in
need throughout the com-
munities served by
CenturyTel and EMBARQ.
Food banks across
America are reporting a 30
percent increase in requests
for emergency food assis-
tance, according to Feeding
America, the nation's
largest hunger relief organ-
ization. The organization
reports that many
Americans are unable to
provide adequate amounts
of nutritious food to their
families, due to the current
economic crisis. Demand
also grows during the sum-
mer months, when children
are home and are not
receiving meals at school.
"The need for food right
now in our local communi-
ties is greater than ever,"
Chase said. "This food
drive will allow us to unite
employees from both com-
panies for a common cause
- building strong commu-
nities. Together, we can."
