AP budget keeps jobs, at least through year


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SAVON PARK - While the
city council unanimously
approved a new budget
Monday,,it may be provision-
al, depending on state esti-
mates expected in sometime
in January.
The short-term news is
good. The approved budget
does not cut any jobs and


keeps all employees at a40-
hour work week - at least'
until January.
Additional income from
the raise in water rates, 100
percent fire assessments,
greater-than-expected rev-
enues from the fuel tax and
leaving the positions of fire
chief and fire inspector
unfilled while hiring fewer'


police officers, are the main
reasons the budget was able
to work.
"We're really, really happy
(we were able to preserve
jobs)", finance director
Renee Green said. "We think
that's good news."
However, she also said that
revenues from sales tax dol-
a'lrs had dropped yet again, so

The City of Sebring is working on a plan to board up the broken windows at the old power
plant on Park Street, but wants the boards to be painted to look like windows.

Old power plant to

By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Sebring City Council decid-.
ed on Tuesday to wait until their next meeting
to try an experiment to cover the windows at
the old Park Street Power Plant.
SThe building, located at 10 B Park St., is
currently used for storage of meters and gen-
erators, according to Council President John
Griffin, and the windows have been vandal-
ized.
"I can tell it was a smart decision to place
all that gravel out there by a deserted-looking
building," Griffin joked.
Griffin, along with Councilman Scott
Stanley *and Community Redevelopment
Executive Director Pete Pollard, were a small
committee appointed by council to address
the window issue and to look at a future use
of the building.

The short-term plan, according to Griffin,
is to spend about $3.650 to secure the build-
ing by covering the two big windows at the
front with sheets of stucco board or handy-
board.

there was uncertainty for
2010, and the city is still not
out of the woods. Future revi-
sions may have to be made.
The city hopes to return
$274,629 to the current
reserve by the 'end of the year
- some of the funds coming
from the police and parks
departments' careful use of
gasoline, the unfilled posi-


tion of fire chief, retirement
pay outs that were not need-
ed, and using contracted
labor for city landscaping.
The city has a current
unrestricted reserve of
$279,070 and a restricted
reserve of $383,324.
The next budget hearing
will be on Monday, Sept. 14.

Washington named publisher of 'News-Sun'


News-Sun staff
SEBRING - From watching a
press run of a daily newspaper as a
Girl Scout Brownie nearly 40 years
ago to running the newsroom of the
hometown newspaper for the past
12 years, Romona Washington has
worked her way up the ladder to
become publisher and executive
editor- of the News-Sun.
Washington will be assuming the
duties of Clarissa Williams, who.
returned to Kentucky to become
publisher and general manager of
the Oldham Era.
Washington was too young to
realize that the field trip she took as
a second-grader in Olney, Ill. could
one day lead to a long career in the
newspaper of the county she was
transplanted into more than 30
years ago.
"I remember watching that press

wonderful teachers
through the years.and
am very excited about
the opportunity to lead
this newspaper.'

run and watching the newspaper
coming off and thinking it was awe-
some," she said.
Some years later she delivered
the Effingham Daily News in the
town where she was spent her early
childhood, Newton, Ill. Neither rain
nor snow could keep.her from get-
ting the paper delivered. In fact, a
leisure trail ride with the family led
her and her brother to deliver their


routes one afternoon on horseback.
"That was really something. My
horse was my best friend. We were
so connected that all I had to do was
pat her on the side of the neck to get
her to turn. She just walked along
and I'd roll up the newspaper and
throw it," she said of that memo-
rable delivery.
Washington began her career
with the News-Sun in 1980, shortly
after graduating from Avon Park
High School. She was hired by Ed
Carter, who was publisher of the
then-Avon Park Sun, to work in cir-
culation and as a typesetter/proof-
reader.' Within a short time, she
tried her hand at advertising under
the guidance of Ann Carter.
Realizing her desire to be in the
newsroom, she waited for an open-

Towne Square
landscaping
postponed
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssu .corn
SEBRING - Sebring
City Council was present-
ed the current set of plans
for the landscaping at
Towne Square Shopping
Center, but members
requested further review
before they would
approve.
Bruce Johnson, presi-
dent of Bruin Contracting
from Cape Coral, present-
ed landscaping plans from
Whidden Design Studio,
Landscape Architecture
and Land Planning.
According to Johnson,
the Community
Redevelopment Agency
and the Sebring Tree
Board has approved the
plans.
"The tree board was
very helpful, and we were
able to follow most of
their recommendations,"
Johnson said.
According to Johnson,
the plans call for 10 live
oaks and 11 slash pines
across the front facing
Lakeview Drive, but they
are leaving just one of the
large oak that are already
there.
"Everyone agreed that
two of the three old trees
out there have to be
removed. Out of the three
live oaks out there only
one, according to the tree
board, is worth saving,"
Johnson said.
County Commissioner
Guy Maxcy, Dennis
Heston of Your Data Inc.,
and Bill Boyd, presideWp"
the property, a.*v nation,
all r "owners at the
Sei of Lakeview and
," Kenilworth, respectfully
asked if the northernmost
trees could be reconsid-
ered because. they would
block visibility to their
building.
"This is a big improve-
ment over what is out
there. The areas are heavi-
ly landscaped along the
road. The end results will
look good. This is a happy
compromise with every-
thing we discussed,"
Maxcy said.
"But we don't want the
live oaks to block the view
of the building and sig-
nage we have out there.
Live oaks grow into a very
large canopy in just a short
time," Maxcy said.
Councilwoman Margie
Rhoades expressed her
desire for the council to
move forward with the
project.
"We had the CRA and
the Tree Board look at this,
we need to take the board's
recommendations. We had
landscape architects look
at this as well. J don't
know why we are looking
at this right now," Rhodes
said. "They are going to be
able to see your building
easily."
"We professionally dis-
agree," Maxcy replied.
"These live oaks have a
large canopy, and will
block our signage on the
side of the building. We
respectfully request your
reconsideration to plant
some holly or other trees
that would not block our
signage.''
"It's no big deal. We
want to be good neighbors,
and we support the project,
but the larger trees would
block the view coming
from Lakeview Drive. We
are just asking for some
consideration at that point.
Our concerns are that peo-
ple that come from


Lakeview can see our
building. This would block
our signage," Boyd said.
Johnson was amiable to
any recommendations, and
responded that no deci-
sions had to be made right
away because "one of the
last things that happens is
locating where the plants
would be. We could actu-
ally set the trees and get an
idea, and then invite, our
neighbors over to look at
it," Johnson said.

Dick Miller dances with Rose Bell at the Highlands Senior Center Wednesday afternoon,
while his friends join them in a circle.


A final memory


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun .com
SEBRING - Dick Miller
was born on March 18,
1915, meaning he turned 94
this spring.
Born and raised in
Tennessee, he graduated
from college and spent his
career with General Motors.
After retirement, he moved
down from Michigan and
settled into a comfortable
life here in Highlands
County.
Long a widower, after .a
marriage -that lasted 46
years, he reached out to the
senior social life, first at the
former Sun Room- the" with
the HighJaps5'-Senior Center.
._-rvee and involved',
..-'liller became vice-president
of the center in 2006 - the
year it began - and the hit
of the dance party every
Wednesday afternoon.
"He was the great
romancer," said Ahn
McQueen, coordinator of the
center, "and he ate like a
horse."
Then Miller took a fall,


In his final

days, Dick

Miller gets one
last fling Nbith

his friends

and while no bones were
broken, his health began to
fail quickly. He was bedrid-
den, and moved to the
Palms.
Then on Monday his doc-
tors warned him his time
here on Earth was running
out - he had about a week
left,ithey guessed.
But Miller wasn't quite
ready'to go, not without ful-
filling one final wish. He
wanted to see his friends at
the center one last time.
And his friends wanted as
much to see him.
So Ahn McQueen and
Elaine Bari, with the center's
support, made arrangements
to medically transport Miller
to the regular Wednesday


dance, held in the Spring
Hills clubhouse.
No sooner had he arrived
in his wheelchair, frail but
with a.big grin on his face,
than his friends lined up -
the women to kiss him, the
men to shake his hand.
Talking was physically
difficult for him, but he did-
n't stop smiling.
"I made it. I made it;" he
whispered at one moment,
gazing around the large
room taking in the crowd, as
if etching the picture in his
mind.
A cake was brought out,
"We love you Dickie-Doo"
written in yellow icing.
Then he was brought out
onto the dance floor, where
Rose Bell held his hands, his
friends circled round, the
band played "Pennies From
Heaven" and he sang along.
"There isn't much to say,"
he added, "except the great-
est thing I had was all these
friends. I'm just happy to be
able to see them. My last
memory."

SEBRING - Sebring
City Council decided
Tuesday to take two paral-
lel courses of action con-
cerning their debate with
the property owners at 503
E. Center Ave. over an
existing wall.
The council directed City
Attorney Bob Swaine to
both continue his pursuit of
a possible settlement and to
turn the matter over to the
Sebring Police Department
to institute the criminal
proceedings.
The city could begin
court proceedings, but still
wanted to be able to and
back off if a settlement is
reached, said Council
President John Griffin.
The dispute arose two
weeks ago when county
engineers began repaving
Center Avenue as part of
the Sebring Parkway Phase
II Project.
According to Swaine,
three different surveyors
state that the wall is almost
two feet into the right of
way aqd preventing the
county from finishing the
sidewalk on the south side
of Center.
"The county refuses to
tear out the existing wall
without a settlement and
was currently seeking a
variance on the (Americans
With Disabilities Act)
requirements," Swaine told
council.
The county and the city
are pressing the issue in
hopes that they can be done
with that area before school
starts at Sebring Middle on
Monday.
Although Kalvin B.


Lindo is listed as the prop-
erty owner according to tax
records, he was represented
by his wife, Gingerlee
Mitchelllindo, during the
council meeting.
County engineers offered
to install a circle drive at
taxpayer expense on the
property at 513 Center
Ave., just to the east, to
solve line-of-sight issues,
but that property owner
declined that solution, said
City Administrator Scott
Noethlich.
According to Swain, the
county is also willing to
pay up to $7,000 to remove
the 4-foot-high wall and
.replace it with a 29-inch-
high wall to help with line
of sight'issues.
Additionally, Sebring
Council has offered to pay
for an additional $1,000 to
replace the block and fence
on top of the current wall.
Mitchelllindo objected to
both offers originally
because the estimate to
move and replace the wall
would cost upwards of
$14,000 and would damage
over 10 feet of her existing
yard and trees.
* Councilman John Clark
was absent from the last
city meeting, but raised
objections over the city and
county paying for anything.
"I am little resentful that
the county has taken as
much leeway as they have
given. Who gave them the
authority to pay for any-
thing with taxpayer
money?" Clark asked. "I
could not believe it when I
read the minutes that we
also agreed to paying for
this. I am puzzled how any

charges for burglary spree


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
AVON PARK - The Avon Park Police
Department says a number of open burglary
cases that originated in the Lake Tulane
neighborhood have been closed after a minor
was arrested on Aug. 1, when he was indicat-
ed in yet another separate burglary.
Eddie Sequeira, 15, of Avon Park allegedly
stole various items from homes and cars as
close as the same block he resides.
It wasn't until Sequeira's parents were con-
tacted by the Avon Park Police Department
about his arrest that they realized thousands
of dollars in stolen property was in their son's


room.
In one robbery alone, where
Sequeira-allegedly broke into
a home just one street over
from his own, an estimated
$2,435 of property was stolen.
This included a laptop com-
Sequeira puter, video games, a number
of music and blank CDs, 98
DVD movies and electronic accessories such
as a mouse and headphones.
In that case, Sequeira is charged with bur-
glary of an occupied dwelling, theft of less

- We also understand how'
adding 25Q jobs to Highlands
County's e onomy is appeal-
ing.
Even so, we cannot sub-
port the county commission's
approval of the Eagle
National Security Training
Center in Venus, even at the
risk of crying "not in my
back yard."
Progress, in our view, has
to be positive. We cannot see
how a 6,000-foot-long run-
way and target ranges using
live ammunition bring any-
thing positive to the area,
especially when the Air Force
plans to reactivate the histor-
ical bombing range in south-
eastern Rolk County.
We also worry how a pri-
vately owned military and
para-military training facility
would co-exist with its
neighbors.
But mostly we worry about
losing something forever.
For generations, we
Floridians have been squan-
dering our wild places by
pouring concrete, putting up


lights and encouraging traf-
fic.
Venus, and its surround-
ings, are one of the few
places left in Highlands
County where the stars can
be seen at night, and all kinds
of wildlife make themselves
home.
For some time the county
has been moving in the direc-
tion of eco-tourism - a
move we think wise, with
great financial potential.
To put a busy, noisy mili-
tary-style complex in the
middle of a natural wonder
seems at best a short-sighted
plan.
Not only is there th6 loss
of a dwindling natural
resource, but there are the
questions of infrastructure to
consider. One of the reasons,
after all, that Venus is as
attractive as it is, is because
it's far from any population
center.
Where, for example, are
the people who would work
at the center going to live,
shop and send their children


... mte 20zu rezoning (neces-
sary if the training center is
to be built) may not have
been done properly."
Hill seems to think this is
not a problem. "If the zoning
was not done properly," he
said, "we have 60 days to
after we sign the agreement
to get it done properly."
But that implies a foregone
conclusion. It flies in the face
of citizen involvement,
Many of us worry about
governments that overstep
their authority.
Many of us have become
cynical because of political
hypocrisy and insider deal-
ing.
The county commission's
push to continue this process
that has already gone wrong
will only further erode trust
in our elected leaders.
The time has come to:think
ahead. Where do we want to
be in 25 years? Famous for
war games among a secret
select, or famous for public
access to the great, teaming
outdoors?

Why should I pay for Social
Security I won't get?


. Editor:
m -. I would like to know, if Social
4O O Security is not going to be around
__ when I get to retire (I am 46), why then
do I have to keep paying into social
* . Security for other people to draw it?
- Why not just give me what I have paid
. into Social Security and do not deduct
- anymore from my paychecks?
I hope this does not sound like a stu-
pid question because this concerns me.
I think this is a very serious question
that people my age should be asking. If
someone could answer this question I
would appreciate it.

Must be nice to be as
care-free as some protesters
Editor:
Several times I have seen protesters
on TV proclaim that not only are they
against health care reform, but they
also want to do away with Social
Security and Medicare. According to
one protester, "Our founding fathers
didn't mention Social Security or
Medicare in the Constitution, therefore
we should not have these programs.,'
This then is the nebulous of the
protests against health care reform. Get
rid of any kind of help for the disen-
franchised. (President Bush tried to kill
Social Security by taking money des-
tined for Social Security and putting it
in the stock.market. Imagine where
senior citizens would be today if this
had become law).


The "tea baggers" don't care if they
go bankrupt if they have a catastrophic
illness, don't care if they lose their
health care upon losing their jobs and
don't care if they can't take their health
care plan with them if they change
jobs. It must be nice to be so care-free.
Freedom Works, Fox News and a
host of health insurance companies are
doing a fabulous job of killing any
thought of health care reform. And the
people who are protesting are the very
people who suffer if they-become ill
and need medical help.
Stay tuned for new protests arguing
against Social Security, Medicare,
Medicaid, the VA and government-run
health care for vets. All these programs
are socialized help for Americans. And
Conservatives are against anything that
Smacks of socialism.'

Middle class not seeing any
relief from Obama's plans
Editor:
Those who were desperate for
change can heave a huge sigh of relief
with President-elect Obama's victory,
but must also periodically hold their
breath to realize any significant change.
SThe current bailouts so far have shown
,only relief for Wall Street, bankers, etc.
The working middle class have not wit-
nessed any change in their behalf yet.
Now the auto industry is seeking a
bailout. They have huge obligations to
.their retirees and some workers on fur-
lough, but still receiving a paycheck.
The ironic factor here is the retirees
earned their pensions and benefits. As
yet, they have not experienced the loss
of same as occurred elsewhere in this
country, where the CEOs were allowed
to dump pensions, etc. ..
The latest phenomenon is the
Socialist issue. Somehow it is accept-
able to bail out Wall Street and
bankers, but it is socialism to designate
how the funds are expended, socialist
to set up rules and regulations for Wall


Street's and bankers' operations. Thus
far, almost $1 trillion have been doled
out to "save" several financial institu-
tions and they have returned to the
"same old, same old" and paid the
CEOs and executives huge salaries and
bonuses, apparently with no rules,
restrictions or regulations, while the
middle class elements of our society
wait for relief.
Congress is still formulating new
laws and ordinances while these CEOs
continue the old practices. Also the
conservatives attack the liberalsf for
these "socialist tendencies." They
remain in denial that the current aimin-
istration and their party presided over ,
eight years of progressive destruction
of the national financial system, which
in the past, was the foundation of the
greatest nation in history. In other
words, they demand: Just give us the'
money without conditions.
Meanwhile, in reference to victim:
mortgages, a thorough analysis of dif-
ferent groups of the victims is required.
For example, the data show that 40 per-
cent of them qualified for standard
mortgages, but were steered into sub-s
prime ones. They should be the first' for
justified relief. Predatory lenders must
be identified and prosecuted.
Speculators whose intent was to "flip"
these mortgages for profit should get
no relief because they helped to insti-
gate this 'catastrophe. Those who were
provided subprime mortgages even
though they had no collateral, etc.,
should be relieved of the excessively
greedy fees, etc., but they should be
held accountable for misrepresenting
their financial status. The bankers,
mortgagors, et al, must be charged,
prosecuted and penalized for their
unconscionable practices. They should
be required to pay back the egregious
profits extracted from said policies.
Whether any of this will happen
remains to be seen. Optimistically,
some corrections will occur, but thus
far as noted, nada.

cial charges," he said. "There
are a lot of options depending
on how it turns out."
Hollinger said he had not
yet talked to the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office,
which usually contacts him in
this situation with paperwork
and additional information
on the charges.
"He is going to be sus-
pended from duties until we
get the official paperwork
and then well see what hap-
pens," Hollinger said
Wednesday afternoon.
Hollinger could not be
reached for comment
Thursday, but Lt. John Chess
of the HCSO Special Victims
Unit said the paperwork had
been sent by Thursday morn-
ing.
Chess said the SVU policy
is to communicate with the,
school board and other
employers that serve .the
needs of children when


charges like this are brought
against their employees.
"If it has to do with neg-
lect, child abuse and their job
deals with or they are around
children, we will make con-
tact with the employer and let
them know," Chess said.
The arrest report provided
to the News-Sun did not
include the identity bf the
victim, which is standard
practice in these types of
cases to protect them. It also
did not specify how the sus-
pect came into contact with
her.
It wasn't through his job
with the school board, Chess
said.
"It had nothing to do with
the school bus system or any-
thing," he said.
According to the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office Web site, Welden had
not been charged locally with
any crimes in the past. Chess
added that he was not aware
of any other charges from out

County cuts off FHREDI funding


Continued from page 1A
that was why she appointed
Carlson to act as the commis-
sion's FHREDI representa-
tive.
According to Carlson,
FHREDI ran a $160,000
deficit last year, and has
overstated income this year
by $100,000.
The improperly stated
income amount was carried
into this year's budget, so
Carlson stated that the group
has a $300,000 financial
problem.
"I brought up the matter at
the last two meetings, and did
not receive a satisfactory
answer. They are mixing cash
and accrual accounting in
their records, and their
monthly statements are mis-
leading," Carlson said.
FHREDI was sued ,by
Sebring resident Preston
Colby in 2007 when they
refused to turn over their
financial records to him, but
a judge ruled that FHREDI
information did not meet the
criteria for pubic records.
Carlson's first motion to
do away wit FHREDI fund-
ing died for a lack of a sec-
ond, but the discussion con-


'Their monthly
statements are
misleading.'

JEFF CARLSON
county commissioner
tinued.
Commissioner Guy Maxcy,
who abstained from voting
because of his business
involvement with FHREDI,
called Carlson's allegations
"poppycock."
"You are just trying to cut
their legs out from under
them," Maxcy said. "I think
we should demand that they
come before this board."
Stewart tried to interrupt
Maxcy from his direct criti-
cism of Carlson, but Maxcy
responded, "I'm not done.
I've talked to some other
county commissioners who
want you removed," Maxcy
said, addressing Stewart.
"It's unfortunate that we're
sitting here airing our dirty
laundry, but we can't speak
to each other outside this
room," Stewart said.
Florida's sunshine laws for-
bid commissioners to discuss
county business outside the


meetings.
Maxcy apologized to
Carlson for getting personal
and addressing him directly
later during the discussion.
County Attorney Ross
Macbeth was asked by
Stewart what legal ramifica-
tions or liabilities the county
had towards FHREDI.
It was.Macbeth's opinion
that since FHREDI was a
non-profit Florida corpora-
tion, the county had no legal
obligations, but stressed that
Carlson could have been held
accountable legally as a
FHREDI board member if
they were sued in the future.
"The county bears no legal
responsibility, but it's unlike-
ly - though not impossible.
- for individual FHREDI
board members to get sued
for actions they take on
FHREDI's board," Macbeth
informed commissioners.
Stewart passed the gavel to
Don Bates and made a
motion that they withhold
further fuiiding to FHREDI
until their issues were
resolved.
Stewart, Carlson and
Stokes voted yes. Bates
voted no.

Stanley made the motion to


pursue both courses when he
was informed by Swaine that
the property owner has asked
additional questions about
the current settlement offers
while waiting for her own:
survey.
"When the fourth survey
comes in, and it should show
that the wall is in the right of
way, then you will have
missed that opportunity to
'settle," Stanley informed
Mitchelllindo. "If your sur-
vey comes back I want you to


be aware that the removal
will be at your expense."
But the possible costs did
not deter Mitchelllindo.
"Even if the survey comes
back in your favor, I will
only have to move the wall
just 18 inches, not the 10 feet
that is being proposed. We
are talking about our life
here, and the proposed side-
walk is just three inches or so
into the wall," Mitchelllindo

Washington covered many beats and was
part of a number of transitions as the News-

(the Avon Park Sun.and Sebring News) to
become the newspaper it is today.
"I have had some wonderful teachers
through the years and am very excited about
the opportunity to lead this newspaper. We
have an excellent staff here with an unbe-
lievable amount of talent and experience.
Only great things lie ahead for the News-

But the committee had not
secured any bids for the
actual painting of the boards.
"That's the 'pilot project'
part," Griffin said.

might be covered later on if
they look good, Griffin
added.
The other windows on the

to the committee's report,

SEBRING' - The
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, fresh out of leads, are
looking for help in identify-
ing a credit card theft sus-
pect.
"The odds of the suspect
being local may be slim but
having someone recognize
him is our best hope for solv-
ing. this case," HCSO Lt. Tim
Lethbridge of Investigations
wrote in an internal e-mail.
The suspect is described as
a Hispanic male with a
noticeable scar on his right
forearm.
He purchased more than
$500 worth of diesel fuel for
a semi truck using a stolen
credit card at the Circle K at
U.S. 27 and U.S. 98 during
the early morning hours of
July 28.
The truck he was driving
was caught on surveillance
video, identifying it as a red
sleeper cab semi with an
enclosed trailer attached.
"There are good odds the

suspect is out of South
Florida because that is where
the card was reported stolen,"
Lethbridge said in an inter-
view Thursday. "We have a
lot of semi traffic that origi-
nates or whose destination is
South Florida."

The 2009 Sebring Blue Streaks look for the defense to step up in support'of what should be a potent offensive attack against a host of new teams on the coming season schedule.


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING - There is
always a lot of 'new' when it
gets to this time of year.
A new school year is about
to, begin, along with new
starts for the high school ath-
letic teams.
Faces yet to become famil-
iar to varsity followers will
make themselves known and
maybe a few new twists and
turns in strategy and
approach.
The 2009 edition of the
Sebring Blue Streak football
team will see its' share of
new as well, especially with
the district realignment and a


schedule that features either
new opponents or foes not
seen in quite some time.
"Lake Wales, we haven't
seen them in quite a few
years and they've been in the
state finals several years,"
head coach Jared Hamlin said
of one of the higher end new
teams on the slate. "Winter
Haven we haven't played
since '06 and the last four or
five years they've been get-
ting to the semifinals."
And that's just the teams
the Streaks are at least some-
what familiar with, along
with Auburndale and Lake
Region as newer schools 'like
Celebration and Lake Nona


are on the docket along with
second-time opponent
Tenoroc. . :
Of course, there will be
some familiarity with
Highlands County neighbors
Avon Park and Lake Placid
and long-standing rival
Hardee appearing on the
schedule.
And that's where the new-
ness of the upcoming season
starts to take a turn toward
what is familiar for the team.
"We lost some players to
graduation, some good con-
tributors like J.C, Howard,
Dewey Sebring, Kenny

Hancock hits "Spbrts Talk"

Former Sebring High School baseball and football player, Ned Hancock, was a featured
guest on Ed Lynch's "Sports Talk" show Saturday, Aug. 15. Hancock is a long-standing
Highlands County School Board member. Scheduled guests for Aug. 22 are Dean Frazier
and his Sebring 9- and 10-year old All-Star baseball team. The "Sports Talk" show airs live
Saturday's, immediately following the Noon News on WWTK 730-AM.




Favre's best move yet


That headline isn't saying
that Brett Favre's choosing
to play for the Vikings was
the best move, though it was
a pretty good one.
SConsidering that
Minnesota is very strong in
its running game, with uber-
stud Adrian Peterson, as well
as defensively.
They seem a team built
for Super Bowl contention,
if only they had a strong
quarterback.
Not a top-five quarter-
back, necessarily, but a solid
one who can lead the team
with experience and be a
passing threat to compliment
the 1,600-plus yards
Peterson is likely to gain.
Favre began last season
with the Jets very well and
was one of the top-rated QBs
'in the league more. than
halfway through the year.
,But consider, he'd been

primarily in a West Coast
offense with Green Bay -
more short passes over the
middle, dinks and dunks out
in the flats with the occa-
sional downfield heaves.
The Jets offense., which'
Favre pretty much learned
on the fly, was a much more
vertical scheme.
Strong-armed as Favre has
always been, he's nearing


the end and his arm,
endurance wise, just wasn't
what it used to be, wore
down and eventually got
injured.
Back in a more familiar,
toned-down passing attack,
and with Peterson being
Peterson, the need to throw
the ball 30-40 times a game,
with 15-20 of those being
heaves, is lessened.
So finally taking the
Vikings up on the offer was
a smart move, but not THE
move.
No, THE move was sud-
denly reconnecting, signing
on and jumping right into
practice with the Vikings,
Three weeks or so after the
media passed along the
proclamation that he was
going to stay retired. - *
Favre's taken a lot of heat
from pundits, and then from

ties to compete against each
other for medals, some ath-
letes chose to get along and

County athletes to make a

team had Joseph Berry, Joe
Borg, Dana Collins, Nathan
Purdue and Tom Gorney on
it.

Hardee/Highlands team
were Lewis Simpson and
Bruce Brummett, both of:
Hardee County, and Larry
,Rivers, Greg Robinson and
Stephanie Travi, all of
Highlands.
The Highlands team con-
sisted of Alan Kufnowski,
Gerald Bass, Eva Monk,

and 10 bronze.

honor the masses of our fallen military.
They ran one mile for every fallen mil-
itary member from Operation Enduring
Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
By August 24, 2008 there were over
4,000 service men and women honored
with participants in 10 countries and
more than 43 states.
In all, there were 9,145 registered par-
ticipants, 35,725 miles walked or run and
6 miles climbed in honor of the fallen.
Our local walk/run had almost 60 par-

ticipants there will be another walk/run
this year.
Plans for Run for the Fallen -

keeps your right arm on top when you
swing through and helps you to release

News-Sun * Friday, August 21, 2009

Continued from 1B
Daniels, Kevin Welborn,"
Hamlin said. "But we've got
most coming back. We've
been young for a couple
years now and we're still a
little young, but they're a
year older now."
Such as standout quarter-
back-receive combo Matt
Grubb and Devin Clarke,
who are joined by a deep
receiving corps of Michael
Grimes, Chequan Williams,
Tony DeJongh and Michael
Hankerson along with Gus
Williams who will see some
time at tight end.
The aerial attack showed
its' proficiency in reaching
the final four of the Sling and
Shoot, 7-on-7 tournament
last month.
But as potent as the air
attack is; 1,000-yard rusher
Daniel Burnett is back as
well to give the offense a
nice run-pass balance.
"A Idt of people might say
you have to run to establish
the pass, or pass to open up
the run," Hamlin said. "But
we're really just going to go
with what the defense gives
us. If they're stacked up to
stop the run, we'll pass, if
they are looking to stop the
pass, we'll run it on them."
So the offense would seem
to be in good hands, as well
as strong legs and fast feet.
"Our offensive line also
got a lot of good experience
at the camp," Hamlin said of
the Sling and Shoot at the
University of South Florida.
Now the question falls to
the defense which, at times
last season, allowed,for some
exciting, though too gener-
ous, high-scoring contests.
A lot of that, however,
could have been attributed to
a very young defensive team
that comes back pretty much
intact - a year older and a
season more experienced.
"Our starting four up front
from last year are back,"
Hamlin said. "And we've got
most of our defensive backs
returning. Trini Sutton and


News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE
Quarterback Matt Grubb looks to follow up a stellar sopho-
more season as the Streaks set to take on a strong
schedule.


Zach Morris are back at line-
backers and Kyle Yarbrough
has looked real good. We're
solid and now just need to
build up the depth at the posi-
tions."
Aside from the ability of.
Sebring's players, plenty
more came from the Sling and
Shoot that has carried over to
the practice season - confi-
dence, desire and maturity.
"It's carried over well,"
Hamlin said. "They saw how
good they can be and we're a
lot further along. They've
also got that maturity now
about how to play the game.
"In any game, there are
about four or five plays that
are the difference," he con-
tinued. "You've got to stay
consistent and not get too
down if they have a big play
because that can lead to
another one. On the other
side, if you have a big play,
that can get you fired up. But


what I'm seeing now is
they're much more focused.
They know what they need to
do, they're not getting too far
ahead and are just focusing
on each play."
Which, with the new line-
up of competition the Streaks
are readying to face, the
strength of the schedule they
have looming ahead of them,
is likely to be a key for the
team.
"It'll be fun," Hamlin said.
"It's a tough schedule, but
that's what competition is
about, to play good teams
that will challenge you.
That's the fun."
At this edge of the new
beginnings, that's an age-old
mindset that should make for
an exciting season.
That season gets its' start
next Friday at Firemen's
Field with the Fall Classic as
Sebring hosts Gateway
Charter of Ft. Myers.

So he wasn't sure if he
wanted to play, though he
was sure he didn't want any
part of training camp.
Many veteran players
don't want any part of the
two-a-days in the swelter-
ing summer heat - some
feign injury, or make an
injury out to be a little
more than it actually is, to
get some R&R during the
dog days.
Michael Strahan paced
around about retirement a
few years ago before decid-
ing, after training camp,
that one more season would
do the trick.
So, really, all Favre was
doing was waiting until
training camp was over
before jumping on board


for the season.
Only difference was, the
media wouldn't allow him
to just wait, they had to
know what the decision
was going to be - and the
longer he waited, the more
of a story it became until
the general public' began to
turn against him.
And now the media is
suggesting it's his fault,
that it's been his waffling
around about it that has
been what made this so,
annoying?
Had the media just left it
alone, maybe he just waits
until now anyway, instead
of saying he might, then
backs off.
In private conversation,
he and Minnesota coach
Brad Childress probably
had it all discussed anyway.
"Look, I'm going to play
with you guys this year, but
I don't want to do training
camp," is something Favre
might have said.
"Sounds good to me, but
what are we going to tell
the reporters?" Childress
may have replied.
"I'm so sick of them


needing to know everything
right now," Favre might
have countered. "Tell you
what, I'll tell them I'm not
coming back, just to shut
up for now, but you and the
team know that when train-
ing camp is over, I'm com-
ing in."
That potential conversa-
tion just came to'me, and
the more I think about it,
the.more I'd bet that that is
likely something akin to
what went down behind the
scenes.
Just a guy who has
earned the chance to not
have to go through training.
camp but tired of the media
scrutinizing his every wak-
ing thought.
Of course, those same
media now berate you for
being so spoiled and
wishy-washy.
But we know it's only
because you pulled a fast
one on them.
Good one Brett, great
quarterback sneak.

This event is open to local businesses that will compete against each other in Olympic-style activities. The chal-
lenges will include traditional events like an egg toss, tug of war, and closest to the pin. Non traditional events
such as the office dash which is a team relay where the participants ride adult sized tricycles down a course and
collect/drop off items and a crazy raft relay are great for all skill levels. The emphasis of the Challenge is on team-
work, teambuilding, wellness in the workplace, and FUN! To encourage participants to adopt a healthy lifestyle,
team members receive a free YMCA membership for a month prior to the event.
Teams must have a minimum of 15 participants with at least 6 being females. Companies with less than 5( employ-
ees can join together to form a team. Participants must be at least 18 years of age and be a "regular on going
employee" having worked at least 20 hours for one month. Additional points will be given for CEO participation.
Events will run every hour starting with parade of athletes where teams will have a chance to show off their spir-
it with banners and team colors, lunch will be provided to the competing athletes and points will be awarded to
the top 8 finishers. The day will culminate with a tug of war challenge and the presentation of the Corporate Cup
trophy awarded to the overall point winner.
Businesses can sign up at the YMCA in August; the entry fee is $350 per team. Companies can upgrade their entry
to include a sponsorship of a specific event for $500. .;.
For more information companies can contact Gayle Yeager at 414-2563 or email gyeage ldhighldandsyea.cpm.
Proceeds from the corporate cup challenge will benefit youth programs at the Highlands YMCA.

Hurricane pre-
paredness is noth-
ing new to South
Floridians. Every
year, the projec-
tions are made,
warnings are
announced, and
the Atlantic gets
busy. Because of
recent experi-
ences and disas-
ters of yesteryear,


Timeless
Treasure
Luke
Knickerbocker


we take seriously the
threat of storms. Many
lives have been taken and
millions of dollars in prop-
erty lost due to the unfor-
giving winds and rain.
Now here we are again,
looking at another tropical
storm season and potential
hurricanes. Though it is
starting a little later than
- normal, no one would dis-
count the possibility that
we may be hit before it's,
over.
It is fascinating to see
the weather reporters give
hour-to-hour updates, and
constant coverage in the
wake of eminent danger.
The plea to stock up on
water and nonperishable
food resonates with con-
sumers to the point stores
run out of supplies. We
will fill up our gas tanks,
buy new batteries, and
hope for the best, though
fearing the worst. When a
hurricane draws near,
cities will evacuate thou-
sands and do all they can
to protect everyone possi-
ble. Even where catastro-
phe occurs, rescue units
with dogs and helicopters
and boats come to the aid
of every survivor known -
even if it hazards their
own lives.


As I consider
the value of each
life, I am remind-
ed at the priceless
value of every
eternal soul. As a
wise homeowner
will prepare for a
storm by protect-
ing his assets and
family, a wise
man will prepare
for the storm of


death. Eternity is unavoid-
able, but we can prepare
for it. Noah built an ark
for the saving of his house.
We must be hid in Christ if
we are to survive the storm
of God's judgment. We
must realize our vulnerable
state as lost sinners and
beg God for His forgive-
ness through the blood of
His Son Jesus Christ. Only
then may we have the
promise of His eternal sal-
vation and protection of
our soul.
Please take every pre-
caution this hurricane sea-
son and find secure shelter.
But don't neglect the most
important part of your
being, and find. your refuge
in the safe harbor of God's
love. As Jesus stated in
SJohn 10:27, "My sheep
hear my voice, and I know
them, and they follow me:
And I give unto them eter-
nal life; and they shall
never perish, neither shall
any man pluck them out of
my hand." There is no
safer place to be!

DeMolay's are a bit different than
most teenagers. Early in the competition
one could tell that the other teams did
not have the ability or skill that the

the Sebring team could have blown out

SEBRING - Highlands County has a
new youth group for the all young men
between the ages of 13-21. It is the
