SEBRING - With the aroma
of charcoal grills providing a
delicious tang to the air and the
largest audience.gathered for the
opening round, the. sixth annual
Heartland Idol Competition -
junior and teen division 2009 -
got under way Thursday night
almost on time.
Don Elwell, local master of
ceremonies extraordinaire, hosted
the evening.
In front of a festive crowd of
more than 300 people 23 young-
sters and teens ranging from 6 to
17 years old performed acappella,
singing a wide variety of songs
from "Animal Crackers in My
Soup" by Shirley Temple to "My
Eye is on the Sparrow" to
"Teasing to Please" by Cute is


What We Aim For.
Each performance was timed at
90 seconds. The singers were
judged on vocal performance,
stage presence and costume by
five judges.

During her two-year term

Benton will provide direction

County Attorney refunds $2,404.62 over-billing mistake


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - In a letter
addressed to the Highlands County
Clerk of Courts, County Attorney J.
Ross Macbeth apologized for over-
billing for his services.
"With this letter I am delivering
to you my check number 8465 in
the amount of $2,404.62 to refund
to the Highlands County Board of
County Commissioners an over-
billing on the above-referenced
Invoice," Macbeth wrote.
Macbeth's reference was to
voice No. 09-015 dated Aug. 5 of
~tlls year. . :'
S yetthe in , an entry attrib-
uted drecl r Macbeth's billable
hours n 2 was detailed as
"Meet i lorld Rybiniski re
Colby's public records request" 7.5


'It should have been .75 hours, not 7.5 hours. When it was pointed
. ] out that it was a mistake, I sent the county a check immediately'
S-
r ROSS MACBETH
county attorney


hours for the amount of $1,335.90.
Directly following that was a sec-
ond entry for the same amount and
same detailed information. for a
total of $2,671.80:
Ross also explained in his letter
that the "time was originally
entered in the billing program and
was later moved to the new catego-
ry of Public Records Requests for
the final bill."
"Unfortunately, each entries was
erroneously entered as 7.5 hours
instead of .75 hours, and no one
caught the error prior to submission


of the invoice. The enclosed check
refunds the 13.5 hours overbilled
due to that data entry," Macbeth
stated in his letter.
The total amount of billing on the
invoice for the month was
$30,591.44.
"I am not sure how many people
looked at this before it was paid, but
it was a mistake. It should have
been .75 hours not 7.5 hours. I
under-bill the county every month.
Why would I have over-billed them
on purpose when I could have just
billed them for the under-billing?"


Macbeth said on the phone Friday
night.
"When it was pointed out that it
was a mistake, I sent the county a
check immediately," Macbeth said.
According to Macbeth, the Clerk
of Courts Office is responsible for
double checking every bill that the
county pays, and Clerk of Courts
Bob Germaine confirmed that state-
ment.
. "When it was brought to my
attention, I immediately saw that it
was wrong and contacted Ricky
Helms and Ross about this,"


Germaine said on Friday.
Helms serves as the Assistant
Count Administrator, and according
to Germaine is part of the lengthy
approval process for county bills.
'"After talking to Ross, it. was
obvious that this was just a typo,"
Germaine said.
"I don't pay a bill until the coun-
ty signs off on it, and to be honest,
this was just an oversight. When it
was pointed out, I called Ross and
he immediately brought us a
check," Germaine said.
"The Clerk's job is to pre-audit
the bills, and we look at over 2,000
bills a month. You hope that some-
thing like this doesn't slip through,
but this one just did. That's why we
also audit bills at random after-
wards," Germaine said.

Highlands Ridge helps students


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - After hearing
the county-wide need for
school supplies, Highlands
Ridge residents generously
donated pens, pencils,
crayons, glue, rulers, note-
book paper, and back packs
to the Highlands County
School Board on Aug. 18.
"After several residents-
came to me and suggested we
support a school supply
drive, all I had to do was put
the word out to our residents
and the supplies started
flooding in," said Julie Burg,
activities and events director


for the Highlands Ridge Golf
Community in Avon Park.
"The residents of Highlands
Ridge are among the most
general people I have ever
met.
"They always rally around
a good cause and this one
was so supported because it
involves children."
Accepting the donation on
behalf of the school board
was Kathy Main, Carol
Davis, Christa Long and Fred
Rhoades, all school social
workers for the elementary
schools.
"We are so appreciative of


the efforts of the residents of
Highlands Ridge.
This will give so many
children the necessary tools
to start this new school
year," Main said.

Chemical spill no
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
A Lake Placid man was unhurt Thursday
after his tractor caused hundreds of gallons of
fertilizers to spill in the street.
Alan Wade, 61, was northbound on U.S. 27
in Clewiston at 10 a.m. when he tried to turn
west onto State Road 80.
When he was turning, the tanks he was
pulling filled with manganese nitrate and iron
nitrate, both fertilizers, fell from the trailer
onto the road.
Due to the spill the southbound lanes of

Ragaller told how there
were 850 high schools across
the world that had a JROTC

Marijuana grow


house busted


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
AVON PARK -
Members of the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office
uncovered the latest mari-
juana growhouse last week,
with the arrest of a couple
coming early the next
morning.
Erick Huet, 34, and
Yaimna Sarduy, 27, both of
Avon Park, were charged
with producing marijuana,
trafficking, marijuana and
possession of narcotic
equipment.
Reports stated that a
HCSO deputy initially
responded to the 1752 N.
Highlands Blvd. home on
Aug. 25 as a follow up to
something that was redact-
ed in the arrest report.
While there, the deputy
allegedly noticed the strong
smell of fresh marijuana
coming from inside.
The 'deputy had been
involved with the disman-
tling of three previous
active marijuana grow
houses and was familiar
with the odor, said the
report by HCSO Special
Investigations Unit
Detective Jason Mulligan.
Mulligan was briefed on


Huet Sarduy
the deputy's observations
and went to the home, also
allegedly smelling "a
strong odor" of marijuana
as he walked up to the front
door.
A supervisor for the
HCSO SIU walked around
the outer perimeter of the
home and allegedly found
insulation, expanded foam,
drywall material, PVC pipe
and a large black plastic pot
directly behind the resi-
dence, about three feet
from the fence.
"These items appeared to
have been thrown over the
fence from the yard,"
Mulligan wrote in the
report.
Based on the information
photographed while at. the
scene, a search warrant for
the residence was obtained
and served the morning of
Aug. 26.

Teens must be escorted at mall

on Friday, Saturday nights


Continued from page 1A
noon announcing the policy.
"Lakeshore Mall strives
to remain a center of com-
Smerce in Highlands County
-that brings quality stores
and shoppers together,"
Cheek said., "Unfortunately,
a growing number of unsu-
pervised youth -and young
adults are attempting to use
the Mall in a manner that is
inconsistent with this pur-
pose."
Dori Smith, a shopper
interviewed on Friday,
agreed.
,'My husband and I are
usually here for a date night
Son Fridays," . she said.
"There are a million kids
who give the security peo-
ple something to do."
She added that as an
employee at Bealls, she had
spent many weekend nights
organizing the shirt sales
Stables, only to have to re-
1 fold' all her work after teens/
came through leaving the
merchandise in a untidy
Spile. "It gives me a different
perspective," she said.
Ed Pittman, of the
Fletcher Music Center, said,
"It's a good thing they' are
I putting a 'youth policy into
place.
"Working on Friday and
Saturday nights lately it's
been out of control.
SChildren who aren't super-
Svised will behave as such. I
think the kids really do need
supervision."'
Cheek said during the
press conference that the


'My husband and I
are usually here for a


date night on
Friday. There."re a
million kids who give
the security people
something to do.'

DORI SMITH
Mall shopper

policy evolved out of a
series of meetings with
organizations and individu-
als in community.
"Teen shoppers are
important' to us," she said,
adding, "wve only ask that
they be supervised for six
hours out of the 72 (a week)
we are open to the public.
We',re doing this for the
community as a whole, so
families can come to a
peaceful environment."
Not' everyone is happy
with the new policy.
Robert O'Conner, the
father of a teen, challenged
Cheek at the press confer-
ence. "There's nothing for
kids to do (in Highlands
County)," he said, "except
spend money and go to the
arcade."
He added that he didn't
think it was fair to punish
the 50 percent of the good
kids for the 50 percent of
the "bad apples."
"Let them get a trespass
order for the kids who cause
problems," he said.
O'Conner was particular-


ly upset when told his 16-
year-old son could not go to
shop for a video game by
himself, even if he, the
father, was in the Mall at the
food court having a snack.
"I think it is wrong," he
said. "I will personally
make it an issue."
He also told Cheek he
would be returning $250 of
merchandise he had just
bought at Bealls, and would
tell the store it was in
protest of the policy.
Todd Anderton, regional
marketing director for CBL
& Associates Properties
Inc., the o% ner of the Mall,
said the policy was nothing

As of 2009 there were
884 units across the United
States, by 2015 congress
wants 955. Of the units,
391 are in the inner city and.
are classified as at-risk,
there are 48,840 cadets

There are/ currently 17
units overseas. As of
October 2008, there were
103,074 students enrolled

158 schools across the
country on a waiting list to
implement the program.
One of the great things
about the program is the

TODAY'S EDITORIAL



Students are back to work


T he 2009-2010 school year has begun.
And while a recent ad running on tele-
vision makes us laugh - parents dancing
ii the aisles of a store buying school,supplies
a9 their children drag miserably behind - we
also feel a stab of regret that the idea of school
should be so disheartening to students, espe-
cially young ones.


If we have any wish for student
at! all, it is, they find learning a
adventure, full of mysteries
solved, exciting and stimulating.
Education should be rewarding
enriching and challenging; chain
acter and confidence building. ]
shouldn't be about fun.
Which doesn't mean it should
be: without laughter or play, bt

pose. '

Bill is not coming from
kindness
Editor:
On July 14, 2009, the Democratic
led, Congress created the America's
Affordable. Health Choices Act. This
1.018-p~rge document %as stamped_
with Cgrigres. approval and was
sent flying .to. the Senate with
President Obama telling them to
pass thiisl'hatlrte bill before their:
Aug. lh r .. ... ...
:Is the government changing the
terht "care" from relieving the suf-
fering, and to improve :c~ality of
life, t9 a: burden, to the government
aid to . costly to. keep alive?
AAHCAp9 has| a, chapter titled
"AdvSnc'ed Care 'Planning
Cohsuftation." This mandates "end
of life' option thatfoices a doctor to
consult with his patients (with or
without any loved ones present)
their rightss and options to "end of
life.': The mandate is not to only
iriforn tle patient, but it is to get
documentation from the.. patient,
sorhething that the patient night not
understand or might not \ ant done.
In this '"end ofi life consultation."
there is io requirement of age of a
patiento or even-if they have an end
of life. infirmit).
President Obama keeps repeating,
".. it is our moral duty to be able to
give ail Americans health care." Is it
therefore a Christian moral duty to
support a healthcare insurance that
pays for� abortion on demand dis-
guised as "reproductive care" and
government supported "end of life"'
measures?
President Obama has been speak-
ing loud and clear, "there will be no
federal committee to make rules and
regulations on this healthcare."
There is to be a 26-member "HealthI
Behefits", Advisory Committee"
chlired by the ,Surgeon Gen'eral.
President Obama' is to appoint nine
non-federal employees or officers
and up to eight federal employees or
offices ' to ...this HBAC. The
ConiptrioHer General of the U.S. .is,
alst to appoint nine non-federal
employees or officers to this HBAC.
This 26 committee nick-named "the
death panel" will have total and
cothplete authority by a stroke of a
pen over you, your loved ones, and
your business over health care.
,.tart up funding for this
AAHCA09 is $2 billion. So who
will control the money of this gov-
ernment insurance company?
Another federal layer of bureaucracy
and that will be the Secretary Health
and Human Resources.
ACPCA09 also gives President
Obhma authority to appoint a feder-
al Health Choice Commissioner who
will head a HC administration.
Reading the first 50 pages of this
ACPCA09 and it already looks like
a federal "lasagna" bureaucracy.
President Obama has been telling
the public "... that if you already
have a medical insurance plan you
would not be forced to chatige."
Wrong! AAHCA09 states a "phase
in", with a ,Health Insurance
,Exchange and w Exchange


turns, to working with different
personalities, to developing a
work ethic, to developing a per-
soral philosophy - a formal edu-
cation prepares the individual for
'the crowd and the problems of
real life.
The better an individual under-
stands this world, and can navi-
gate on it, the more fulfilled, more
Balanced and happier that individ-
ual will be.
If: parents help their children
accept that hard work can result in
joy, both in the sense of accom-
plishment and reaching wanted
goals, they will give their children
a precious gift and a valuable tool
for the future.,


If parents find the time to visit
their children's classrooms and
forge an alliance with their chil-
dren's teachers they will have set
an example and created a support
system that will see their children.
through difficult times, should
those come to pass.
If parents make it clear learning
is an important job requiring
effort, their children will think of
it that way too and continue to
learn for the rest of their lives.
But education isn't all aboit
parents and children.
Teachers need to remember to
praise as well as prod, to listen
carefully and find more than one
way to explain a process.
And those of us with extra time
should spend some of it in a
school - as a mentor, a helper, or
a Special event. That way we too
can be part of the solution and
stay connected to the future.
Please drive carefully out there,
the 2009-2010 school year has
begun.

Contract renewal rate not
Sa good one
Editor:
As I am a teacher in Highlands
County, I read with interest your
article of Aug. 14th about the new
teacher orientation. I believe the
school district's Human Resources
Department gives excellent training
that will help new people be effec-
tive teachers, but they might have
missed one or two personal points.
If you are a newv teacher in
Highlands County, do not buy a
house. There is a one in three chance
you will not be staying. How could
we hire so many new teachers when
we cut so many positions? Because
many teachers on annual contract
(their first three years) are just let go
even though their evaluations have


been very good. This is legal, but it
is not moral.
To ask someone to move here and
then leave them abandoned' and job-
less is unconscionable. Our district's
rate of not renewing annual contract
teachers exceeds the state average
and has for several, years.
New teachers, welcome to
Highlands County. It is a great place
to live and you will meet many ded-
icated wonderful teachers ready to
help you and your precious students.
Good luck (but be careful).

Obamacare warning
Editor:
The national administration is
moving hell bent to force through an
omnibus Health Care Reform Bill
that no one seems to fully under-
stand and cannot clearly explain to
the Aimerican public. The respect
Life Movement has a right and a
duty to be suspicious of this pro-
posed huge change and the possibil-
ity of it being a Trojan Horse in the
area of the bogus "Right to
Abortion."
Immediately prior to and -after
President Obama's inauguration,
there was a great deal of talk about
his support for the proposed
Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA). It
was one of his strong talking points
aimed directly at the Pro-Abortion
crowd. The American public raised a
strong and loud voice against its
passage and after a few months, very
little has been heard about it. Wise
heads warned us about being too
complacent and to be vigilante
watching for its return, even if it is
broken into small pieces and insert-
ed into other, seemingly neutral leg-
islation.
SNow comes the .frantic Health
Care Reform Bill. Could this be the
wolf in sheep's clothing? If it is, it


will force you to pay for the killings
that will follow. Unless Congress
explicitly states that abortion is
excluded, it will be regarded as "an
essential benefit" for Americans.
Once that is done. insurance compa-
nies would be forced to cover elec-
tive abortions and hospitals to hire
more abortionists.
President Obama stated to the
Planned Parenthood Action Fund
event in July 2007, "In my mind,
reproductive care is essential care,
basic care, so it is at the center, the
heart of the (health care) plan that I
propose." There you have it. He said
it and he means it. Ask yourself the
question: If these pro-abortion legis-
lators, will not protect the most vul-
nerable of innocent babies, how will
they protect me when I beconie vul-
nerable?
We should look to and work with
our Respect Life legislative leaders.
and let them know how outraged we
are with this' back door, sneaky
effort to promote and finance the
killing of innocent babies in their
mother's womb.

Representative Kevin Brady holding
a town hall meeting, in Livingston,
Texas, apparently to answer ques-
tions about President Obama's

imposing his opinions.

years and had never seen such an

I have a


question

I'd strongly considered writ-
ing about the town hall meeting
Representative Tom Rooney wasl
planning to hold in Lake.Placid
on Tuesday. Don and I intended
to attend, because we both.have
concerns about the federal gov-
ernment's reported plans to
change health care as we know
it.


With making sure we had the "
home front taken care of and
grabbing some dinner, we didn't
get to the Lake Placid
Conference Center until around
7:15. An unfortunate Highlands
County deputy sheriff informed -
us that they could not allow any.
more people into the center, and:
we would have to forget our
plans.
We drove a little further to
turn around. As we headed back,
the %a) we'd come, we noted a'
very long line of cars waiting to:
be told they couldn't get into
the town hall meeting, I felt
verybad for the deputy, who
seemed to. be a nice young man -
-who was going to have to deal
with a lot of cranky people.
If I had gotten in, I did have a
question Iintended to ask. Since
I didn't have a chance to do so,
I will ask it here in the hopes
that some one among my read-
ers can explain it to me.
The question should come as
no surprise to regular readers. Itt
is this: What part of the U. S.
Constitution permits the federal:
government to take over health
care?
The closest I've gotten to an
answer to this question is
twofold: the "general welfare" ;
clause and the "interstate corn- �
merce clause, both in the aforef
mentioned Constitution. -
Here's my problem with this
answer: If the founders bf our .
country intended for these
clauses to grant the federal gov-
ernment unlimited control, why
did they bother to list specific f
roles for Congress in Article 1,.
Section 8? They could've just '
said, "Hey, anything the federal-*
government wants to do for the
good of the people, they can
do."
Of course, they would have
said that with a lot of $10 words
and made the sentence a lot
prettier. But you get the gist.
For that matter, why bother
with the Ninth and 10th
Amendments in the Bill of
Rights, which say that rights
specifically not listed are .
retained by the people, and that;
any powers not specifically list-t
ed as belonging to the federal :
government belong to the
states?
See why I'm confused?
But we need to leave that sub-:
ject for now..I cannot finish this'
column without speaking about
Senator Ted Kennedy, 'ho died'
of brain cancer this week.
I suspect that if Senator
Kennedy and had ever met, we
would quickly have been
involved in an intense (and
more than likely loud) political
debate. It's possible there's;
something we could discover we;
agree on, but the odds aren't
that good.
Senator Kennedy was a high-
ly visible politician and repre-
sentative of the liberal way of
thinking. He was quite willing
to throw political punches and
took them as well. He presented.
his beliefs without apology, and'
From the way,he conducted his .
life I suspect he didn't care
what others thought about what
he did.
His death, while not a sur-
prise, is a blow to his family, a
family that has suffered more
tragedies than seems to be fair.
It would take quite a hard heart
not to feel sorry for them.
Whether you agreed with him:
or not, Teddy Kennedy played
an important role in our govern-
ment. And if you didn't agree
with him, please think of his
grieving family and if you can't;
speak kindly, for now be quiet.

you folks, but I don't want

my family's health care." Let
us turn back the pages of time
to the Presidential Campaign
of 2000 and 2004.
Many of us recall the Rev.
Jerry Falwell (now
deceased), the role this
Baptist minister played in
getting \ George W. Bush
elected. He used his ministe-
rial powers of persuasion in
getting the vote out. Special
interests and Bush apparently
booted the. bill as the
Reverend made his rounds
from church to church of all
denominations.
Both Protestants and
Catholic leaders were given
"sums of money" for the
";good of the church," of
course., Congregations were
encouraged to vote, many
contrary to their party and
choice.
We , should remember
always Republicans won the
first election in 2000 and
were given the presidency to
George W. Bush in 2004 by
Sthe Supreme Court, a deadly
misdeed we will be paying
for in many years to come....

leaders to encourage votes.
Congregational attendance
of churches began to drop all
over the country. Some of
that was because of priests
and ministers molesting chil-
dren. Dishonesty was taking
its toll. Many Catholics
dropped out or changed affil-
iation to other denomina-
tions. Others are forming
groups, worshipping in their
homes. Still others do not go
to church at all.
Some may ask, "Why
dredge this all up?" It's in the
past.
Forgotten history is sure to


be repeated. Having remind-
ed ourselves of past blind
compliance to trickery and
lies, is it inconceivable to
believe that this so-called
town hall movement that
cropped up so suddenly is
anything more than the seeds
of confusion being planted by
some uninformed and possi-
bly with flexible morals.
Some who cannot find a
job and are out of cash.
The need for money can be
a real incentive. Not for all
people, but for some.
It appears white sheets
have been stashed away in
the attic replaced by three-
piece suits and shiny shoes.
President Obama, a black
man, has been ridiculed,
abused, lied about, called
Hitler, along with other
insults. Attempts have been
made to harm him.
People who are paid as
Republicans, Senators to help
run this country have done
everything they could to
block the health care plan.
Rush Limbaugh denigrates
President .Obama over
national radio. Sarah Palin
has lied about end-time care,
calling it-the "death panel."
Yet President Obama takes
these hateful, hurtful accusa-
tions with calm dignity.
Always a gentleman with a.
positive attitude and a quick,
friendly smile....

Bryan doing good
job for taxpayers
Editor:
I would like to thank
Charles Bryan, who as
Highlands County tax collec-
tor, has done the people of
this county a great service by
allowing those of us who
qualify the option of paying
for a two-year vehicle regis-
tration instead of waiting to
pay the 100 percent increase
effective Nov. 1.


It may not make the
bureaucrats in Tallahassee
happy, but it made me very
pleased.
Well done.

Shop local for
excellent service
Editor:
I recently updated my cell
phone at EMCI - Wireless,
3708 Sparta Road, Sebring.
The knowledge and courtesy
of the staff was wonderful.
Angela took the time to cus-
tomize some of the options
on my phone or make it easi-
er for me to use.
Instead of clicking the
Internet for your next pur-
chase, shop local for excel-
lent service.

AVON PARK - Fatigue
kept the Avon Park Red
Devils from pulling out a win
against the North Port
Bobcats, who took
home the 14-12 victo- North
ry Friday night at Joe
Franza Stadium.
According to Avon
Park Head Coach Avon
Andy Bonjokian, the A
fatigue contributed to
the 13 penalties for a
75-yard deficit.
S"This, was an ugly game.
We are very lucky this was a
pre-season game, because it
was ugly on our side,"
3onjokian said.
"We have got to get into

better shape. Since we are a
small team, a lot of guys have
to play both ways. We did
well in the first half, but we
were just wore out half-way
through the third quarter, and
it showed," Bonjokian
Port added.
The stats support
Bonjokian's theory.
Devils quarterback
Park Tekovan (TK) Miller
completed seven of
. his 10 pass attempts in
the first half for 85
yards.
The lion's share of those
passes went to the towering
Alonzo (Stick) Robertson,
who snagged five of the
seven completions.
But in the second half,


Miller overthrew Robinson
four out of his five attempts
at the favored target, and
picked up just two yards from
the attempts.
Miller ended 'the night hit-
.ting nine of his 17 attempts
for a respectable 114 yards
passing and five carries for
42 yards rushing .
"I felt confident in the first
half," said Miller. "But I felt
rushed in whole second half.
SWe just had too many
cramps, and too many mis-
takes the second half," Miller
added.
According to Bonjokian,
the fatigue caused a mental
breakdown, and that was
what cost Avon Park the

Blue Streaks ground Griff ins

SEBRING - Friday's Fall
Classic at Firemen's Field
was indeed a classic perform-
ance for the home crowd as
the Blue Streaks struck early
and often en route to a
49-0 rout of visiting Sel
Gateway Charter. ', ,
And yet, head coach
Jared Hamlin saw
some things that need Gat
to be Aorked on.
"I saw some good
things, but I saw some
things that weren't so good,"
he said. "We.had, what; four
penalties in the score zone
and that shouldn't happen.
We overcame three of the
four. but we can't put our-
selkes in that predicament."


But on this night, there
wasn't much the striking
Sebring offense couldn't
overcome as they put up 28
points in the first quarter
alone.


The first came on a five-
:play. 65-yard drive on
g .the game's opening
possession.
Quarterback Matt,
Grubb fired to Jaquan
y Williams for a 15-yard
gain before 'Daniel
Burnett 'broke off a
32-yard run down the

far sideline.
Burnett brought it do% n to
the ten on an eighf-yard gain
and one play later, Grubb
connected with Devin Clarke
in the left flat from where
Clarke ran and dove to cross


the goal at the front-corner
pylon.
Senior Troy albert the
split the crossbars for his first
of seen successful extra
point conversions on the
night for a 7-0 lead at the
9:26 mark.
After the ensuing kickoff,
Gateway, in just it's second
season, went three-and-out,
helped along by a Trini
Sutton sack and Sebring
needed just three plays, and
less than three minutes, to get
into the end zone again.
Burnett gained 15 yards on
the first two plays before
Grubb and Clarke hooked up
for a, 41-yard touchdown
strike.
Three plays into the
Griffin's ne.t possession.


defensive end.Gus Williams
pulled the ball out of Dre
Thomas' grasp. Zach Morris
recovered and' the Blue
Streaks were in business at
the Gateway 18.
Grubb and Clarke connect-
ed for nine Nards to get it to
the nine and Burnett bashed
through the line for six yards
for first and goal at the three.
A Grubb to Tony Laboy
DeJongh pass was stopped
right at the goal line, but
Grubb took it in himself on
the next play, I pushing-
straight forward for Sebring's
third touchdown in less than
eight minutes.
They would add another 49
seconds later as a fumbled

Wildcats Overpower

Green Dragons


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID
-Outmatched and over-
powered.
Those are the only two
words that can sum up'the
Hardee and .Lake Placid
match-up at Roger
Scarborough Memorial
Field Friday night that saw
the Wildcats -dominate the
Dragons 41-0 in the annual
Kickoff Classic.
"We knew they were
going to be big and fast,"
said Holden. "We wanted
our guys to see the speed
that really good teams play
at so we can begin to play at
them too.'
The Wildcats got the ball
rolling from their first
offensive play as they
pounded the young Dragons
squad with a healthy dose
of fullback Jerrius Lindsey.
Hardee jumped on the
scoreboard early in the first
quarter as Lindsey plunged
in form 12 yards to cap a
10-play, 80-yard drive.
Following a Lake Placid
three-and-out, the Wildcats
were at it again but this
time \-ith a short field to
their ad' antage.::
Hardee needed only four
plays to find the endzone as'
Esayi Youyoute found
Jacob Nowakowski alone
on a beautifully thrown ball
to put the Wildcats up 14-0
With four minutes left in the
first quarter,.
The Hardee defense
Stepped up on the Dragons
next possession, forcing the
Dragons to punt the ball
away.
On the punt, Hardee
,received the ball on the 45-
yard line when Lake
Placid's Tony Gonzalez
came in like a torpedo and
dislodged the ball from the
carrier allowing a teammate
to recover-it.
With the new breath of
life on offense the Dragons
looked poised to score but
were pushed back thanks to
a strong defensive front.
Facing a fourth and long,
the Dragons sent out
Stephen Guelff to attempt a
45-yard field goal - that
sailed wide right.
Hardee took the momen-
tum they had on defense
and put it to work on


'We wanted our

guys to see the
speed that really

good teams
play at.'

JASON HOLDEN
Lake Placid head coach

offense as they built 'anoth-
er 10-play, 80-yard drive.
This drive was capped
off by a well thrown ball
from Youyoute to
Nowakowski from 26 yards
out.
Following a Lake Placid
punt, the Wildcats got the
ball on a short field and was
able to put the finishing
touches on a perfect first
half as they went eight
plays for 27 yards with
Lindsey plunging. in from
one yard out on fourth
down.
The second half started
much like the first half
offensively for the Dragons
as they were forced to punt.
Hardee went to work on
'their own 45-yard line and
pushed their way down the
field until they got inside
the 20.
But sophomore Nevada
Weaver ended the drive
when he stripped the ball
from Lindsey, turning the
ball over to the Dragons.
Lake Placid, however,
couldn't get the ball mov-
ing and was forced to punt
three plays later.
Following the punt, the
Wildcats went 62 yards in
only six plays and scored
on a seven-yard Jake Mayer
run to put the Wildcats up
34-0.
On the final possession
of the night for the
Wildcats, Brek
McClenithan broke loose
for a 30 yard touchdown
scamper to put the final
touches on a nearly perfect
evening for the Hardee
offense.
"Our guys played their
butts off," commented
Holden. "We have a lot of
things to work on going
into this week but I know
we will be OK. The kids
will come out fired up to
play Sebring next week."

Domino effect stops Lady Streaks


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@ newssun.com
SEBRING - It wasn't just
the domino effect, as head
coach Venessa Sinness
described it, that did in the
Lady Blue Streaks Thursday
night, a tall and tough
Okeechobee squad had a lit-
tle something to do with it as
well.
"The'girls did a really
good job all around with
serve receive, serving, hitting
the ball well and setting," she
said. "But it was the lack of
communication. They have to
realize they have to commu-
nicate on every play, other-
wise there's that moment of
hesitation and the rest of the
girls can't move to the posi-
tions they should be in. It was
like dominoes, one bad thing
and boom, boom, boom. And
against a team like
Okeechobee, who have their
big hitters and run a good
offense, that will really hurt
you."
It was especially evident
early on with the Lady
Brahmans taking control
early and the Streaks seem-
ingly scattered and scram-
bling.
Service aces by Anna West
and Britt Augustine, along
with a West block, and
Abigail Bone kill were
among the Sebring highlights
from the opener, but the 25-
13 Okeechobee win didn't
offer much more.
"Okeechobee is a very
skilled team with a lot of raw
talent and we only see them
once a year," Anna West said.
"They're big and we haven't
quite meshed yet. It's presea-
son and 90 percent of our
errors tonight were miscom-
munication."
Though the meshing
seemed to develop a bit more
in the second game of the
match with Sebring jumping
out to a 4-0 lead.
The Brahmans charged
back on a 5-0 run tp take the
lead but a great combo block
by Augustine and Kaley
Walter halted the run and
from there it was a back and
forth contest with Sebring
getting up as much as 14-11
then ..Okeechobee bouncing
back to go up 21-18.
Despite two Augustine
scoring tips in the late going,
the visiting purples took a 2-
0 match lead with a 25-20
win.
But the Streaks were show-
ing that when the communi-
cation was going, they were a
match for the Lady Brahmans
as the third game was anoth-
er back-and-forth affair.
Brittany Whittington
smashed a kill for an 11-6
lead and a West tip stopped a
'Chobee run to get the lead

bad thing and
boom, boom,
boom.'

VENESSA SINNESS
Sebring head coach

back to 12-11 before Sebring
won going away, 25-18.
A combination, however,
of the domino effect return-
ing and the Lady Brahmans
getting hot, turned the tide in
the fourth game.
After closing to within 8-5,
the Lady Streaks saw
Okeechobee go on a 9-0 run
to take a 17-5 lead.
\t went to 18-7 before, with
Jaye Whitehead serving,
Sebring ran off the next six
points to close to within 18-


But a 7-4 difference the
rest of the way made for the
final 25-17 score and the
tournament title . for the
Brahmans.
"We're used to be able to
yell in the gym with no fans
and you can hear each other,"
West said. "But with the fans,
with rowdy fans, it was hard-
er to hear and we weren't
able to concentrate as much.
But it was good to have that
experience now so we know
we need to work on that."
Sinness agreed with that
assessment.
"They know what they
have to step up to," she said.
"The communication has to
be there every time, all the
time. That's something we
can work on, but I saw so
many good things in other
parts of our game that I can't
complain."

SEBRING - The Lady
Dragons aced their way to a
25-9, 25-10, 25-20 win over
Avon Park Thursday in the
Pre-Season Classic in
Sebring.
"I am very happy with the
improvement over the other
night," said Lake Placid
Head Coach Marilyn Jones.
"I am much happier. We
played well together, and we
communicated. We worked
on staying up and in the
game this week, and I was
very pleased with our play."
Lake Placid controlled
the first two games right
from the start, taking com-
mand of the services and
giving Avon Park trouble on
the returns.
Dragon Marissa Baldwin
captured seven aces for the
night, keeping Avon Park
wondering where the next
one was coming from, and
Team Captain Sierra Weaver
added four aces and five
kills to the stats before retir-
ing in the third game.
"We've been together as a
team since the seventh
grade, and we just needed to
work on playing and
remembering to play togeth-
er," Weaver said.
"I love how we kept our
confidence up and played as
a team, and I think we were
ready to go tonight," the
senior added.
But Avon Park would not
go quietly, and rallied to
start the third game with the
lead and put a respectable

20 points on the board
before the match ended.
Lady Devil Head coach
Stephanie Devlin knows
that a lot of work still has to
be done to her young Devil
spikers, but is confident that
experience will solve a lot
of issues.
"We went back to the
drawing board this week
and shifted to a three-man
server team," she said.
"Everyone in practice
seemed to adapt to it quick-
ly, and it seems to be a bet-
ter fit for now, but we have
to work on our serve return.
Our next practice is going to


be 100 percent serve
return."
"Our service was not bad,
but the control on those
returns killed us. We need to
move our feet, but we will
get there," Devlin comment-
ed.
Those feet look to be in
motion Tuesday night as
Avon Park jumps right into
their new district schedule
at Frostproof to face the
Lady Bulldogs while Lake
Placid greets new district
opponent Port Meade for a
home match Tuesday at 7:30
p.m.


The Highlands County YMCA

is hosting its first annual


Corporate Cup Challenge

on Saturday, October 17,2009

This event is open to local businesses that will compete against each other
in Olympic-style activities. The challenges 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
teamwork, 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 50 employees 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 spirit 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 o 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 gyeager@highlandsymca.com.

Gateway no match



for Blue Streaks


Continued from 1B
pitch was recoveredby Tevih
Tdney at the Griffin 17 and
od Sebring's next play it was
th6 Grubb to Clarke hook-up,
thht should be a familiar
scene throughout the year,
thht made it a 28-0 game with
3:15 left in the opening
frame.
Amid the offensive fire-
works, the Blue Streak
defense was more than hold-
ink up its end, holding
Gateway to three-and-outs
and forcing turnovers to give
the offense a short field, to
wbrk with.
The Griffins didn't gain a
first down until their second
possession of the second half
and the only other one, in the
fourth quarter, came on a
penalty.
One of the turnovers the
defense provided came early
in the second quarter when
Michael Grimes stepped in
front of a Marc Williams pass
add brought it to midfield.
From there, Grubb ran for
Id yards and Burnett carried
it four straight times (actual-
ly six, but two were nullified
by penalties) to cover the
final 40 yards for a 35-0 lead.
Sebring made it 42-0 a lit-
tle more than four minutes
later, when, after another
fuihble recovery by Morris,
Giubb connected.with Sutton
foi- 11 yards, ran for a yard
ard then connected with Gus
Williams in the back left cor-
ner of the end zone.

ing carry Friday night.


passes ended the Griffins
next attempt at any sense of
advancement and the Streaks
went right back to work.
Burnett went for 15 yards
on consecutive carries before
Sutton ran off 21 on the next
two.
It was Burnetts turn on the
next four, totaling 29 yards
and pushing in a one-yard
plunge to finish the drive,
and scoring, for the night.
With the 40+ point lead in
the second half, a running
clock allowed for a total of
six possessions over the final
24 minutes with most of the
starters having the rest of the
night off.


"A lot of things we have to
get better at," Hamlin said
afterward. "But I'm real
happy with the win. The kids
played hard and got after it,
they took care of their busi-
ness. It was a good win and
we're -ready to go on to the
next one."
And the getting after it
shouldn't be a problem as the
next one not only counts but
renews a cross-county rivalry
with Lake Placid.
The Green Dragon-Blue
Streak contest will be at
Roger Scarborough
Memorial Stadium Friday,
Sept. 4 with a 7 p.m. sched-
uled kickoff.

game.
"We blew assignments,
we could not concentrate
and had two great runs
called back," Bonjokian
said. "We kept shooting our-
selves in the foot. We would
recover, but the penalty
deficit just proved too
much."
"We were too tired. I
don't know if we were not
drinking enough, or eating
right, or just out of shape.
But we are going to fix that,
I promise you that,"
Bonjokian told his team
after the game.
Overall, the Big Red
Machine cranked out 151
yards rushing during the
game, and kicker Robert
Bieber contributed to six of
the 12 points on the board
with a 26-yard field goal in
the second quarter and a 32-
yard repeat performance in
the third quarter.
A Miller 13-yard pass to
receiver David Callahan
added six more in the fourth
quarter, but running back
Teddy Allen fell less than a
yard short on the two-point
conversion for the tie.
Allen again proved to be
the work horse this year for
the Red Devils, averaging
4.5 yards per carry, but was
kept out of the end zone in
the second as well by the
North Port defense on a run
from the five, prompting the
first field goal.
On the other sideline,
Bobcat quarterback Paul

Alonzo Robertson stretches out to make this catch in the
midst of North Port defenders Friday night.


Balcombe rushed for just 13
yards in eight carries, and
completed four of eight pass
attempts: for 47 yards and
one touchdown.
North Port running back
Tyree Roundtree amassed


117 yards in 13 carries with
one 58-yard touchdown run.
The Red Devils hope to
get their wind back as they
go on the road next Friday
to face the Frostproof
Bulldogs at 7:30 p.m.

ARTS & LEISURE


Living through the Depression in Lorida taught resourcefulness


Phneer Cow Hunter of
Loria Nell Prescott contin-
ues er story:
"Vhen I was 8 years old,
we didn't have things but
Dady had a job, we had
foo, clothes, and a roof
ove our heads (even though
it laked), and we never
wet to bed hungry. We grew
potatoes, peas, and other
veptables and Mamma
caned them; it wasn't gour-
me food but it stuck to our
rib.
Mamma, like other wives
ofhat era, stayed at home
seing to her family's needs.
Sb washed on a rub board,
irned with a flat iron heated
o1a wood stove; she even
irned the sheets and pillow
cases besides cooking three
mals a day. She used hog
led and bacon grease for
fring and baking. Meals
insisted mostly of meat,
dy beans or black-eyed
pas, rice, tomato gravy,
crnbread or biscuits, milk,
btter and syrup. These were
tb staples."
With a sense of humor the
wy Nell tells it, "The wood


Wild
Florida
Nancy Dale

stove cooked all the calories,
cholesterol, and triglycerides
out of the food. We never
went without medical atten-
tion and went to the doctor if
we needed to not just for
sympathy."
With only a few settlers
living miles apart and a doc-
tor just as far, families had
to learn to how to treat
themselves with basic provi-
sions and applications. "We
boiled kerosene for sprains,
used castor oil, Epson salt,
B.C. headache powder, and
Lysol for disinfectant." It
was the way of life.
In those early no frills
days, Nell says "there wasn't
any candy on the table or
sodas to drink, but we sur-
vived and I never knew we.
were in 'bad times.'
Everyone said it was 'hard
times' because you couldn't
get things and the cost of
everything was so high. But


even after the war, some
products were still high, so I
don't know if we were worse
or better off then, as I'm still
hearing the same thing
today. It's true, costs are
higher but we have to accept
it. The one big difference is
that now you can borrow
money to buy things using
credit cards.
"All of this can be the
ruination of a person if they
don't control their spending.
When you max out a credit
card you can sure be in trou-
ble.
"Growing up in the
Depression taught me 'to
appreciate' and to be
resourceful. I enjoy all the
modern day conveniences
but I miss the closeness we
had in the community during
those days, but life goes on,
change takes place, and we
have to adjust."
Nell's daddy earned a liv-
ing as a "cow hunter," fol-
lowing the cattle where there
was a job.
In 1933, Rudy was hired
by Lykes Brothers to oversee
the cattle range of Lorida


from Lake Istokpoga to the
Kissimmee River including
the Avon Park Bombing
Range. " 'Cow hunters' back
then didn't have the luxury
of trucks and trailers, so they
camped at the cow pens
where they were working."
The "cow hunters" were
rugged and adaptable. They
learned the way of the land
and the cattle, and became
part of nature in which they
lived. Nell says it was a


,.'09


"hard life with rain the norm
for the day. At night when
there were torrential down-
pours, the men would break
out their slickers, if they had
one, to endure thunder and
lighting, hoping not to be in
the line of a deadly strike;
then they had to settle down
again into sopping wet bed-
ding that might never dry
out before the next down-
pour. This is how they put
food on the table for their


families and they should be
commended for facing such
hardships,"

the Wilderness of Lorida

'Smokey Joe's' at

HLT is a must-see


SEBRING - "Smokey
Joe's Caf6" opened Aug. 21
to a packed house at the
Highlands Little Theatre.
The production was enthusi-
astically received by an
audience o\erw'helmingl
composed of people (includ-
ing this reviewer) whose'
lives were informed and
made joyous by the music of
Jerry Leiber and Mike
Stoller.
Early proponents of rock
and roll, they wrote music
and lyrics for many groups
S(notably The Coasters) and
individuals (Big Mama
Thornton and Elvis Presley).
Their likeable tunes and
catchy lyrics captivated the
music-listening population
of the late '50s and through-
out the '60s.
"Smokey Joe's Caf6" was
their only Broadway effort.
It turned out to be the
longest running musical
revue in Broadway history.
Musical revues are ideal
for the casts of Highland
Little Theatre productions.
The pace of the revue format
highlights the strong voices
among the local players and
tends to eclipse those little
vocal and production
Mishaps that inevitably turn
up in amateur productions,
e.g. voice mike difficulties,
occasional pitch glitches,
and the straying purposeless
light. So few of those
occurred on Friday night that
they were soon forgotten as
the production zipped for-
ward.
The swinging on-stage
musical septet led by Gary
Johnson was a positive addi-
tion to the production. It
offered a welcome relief
from the-usual, but neces-
sary, canned musical accom-
paniment.


Theatre
Review
Don Brusha
Johnson and Chris Hayes
Occasionally departed the
band lo render a song or
two. Because their voices are
so accomplished, this was
always a welcome break
from the rest of the ensem-
ble. This in no way is meant
to belittle the efforts of the
singers.'All 11 of them '
acquitted themselves in a
strongly committed manner.
They vocally supported each
other with obvious enthusi-
asm.
Melanie Boulay~nd
Jennifer Wesygom diyrcted
the produ Fon with Verve
and imagination. "Shoppin'
for Clothes" with its aiimat-
ed mannequins was particu-
larly imaginative. Their set
complimented the produc-'J
tion.
The sound was good con-
sidering the sheer numbers
of performers who needed to
be "miked." Alvin Moore's
headset was pretty wonky.
but luckily his voice is
strong enough to be heard to
the rear of the theater.'
The costuming was partic-
ularlyfavorable to the
actors. It emphasized simple.
classy clothes, which were
suitable for the many cos-
Stume changes.
Dickie Boyce. the stage
manager deserves singular
praise. He kept a large and
complicated production
moving along seamlessly.
This is a musical produc-
tion that will enthrall any
age group, but. if you're in
those "golden years." it's a
must-see.

Dwarf youpon holly may be the answer to your gardening challenges


' Are you one of
those people who
can't get any-
thing to grow in
your garden?
Instead of a
green thumb per-
haps you have a
brown thumb?
You may want to
look.into dwarf
youpon holly
(Ilex vomitoria
nana). This shrub


News From
The
Watershed
toru DU -} .....


(Corinne Burgess
s is not prone to
insect or disease problems, stays
attractive throughout the year and
needs little if any maintenance. It
grows fairly rapidly and is drought
tolerant.
Yaupon holly has been deemed
"the most versatile native shrub
available in the landscape trade."
(Glover). The attractive plant has
dark green evergreen leaves which
contrast nicely with the bright-red
berries it produces. It will grow in
shade or full sunlight. The more
light the plant receives, the more
dense the foliage will be. It will
even tolerate short-term freezes.
The plant may reach heights of
2 to 3 feet and has a spread of
about 4 feet. It has light gray bark
and the leaves are alternate and
ovate to elliptical. The white flow-
ers the holly produces are approxi-
mately. 1-2 inches in diameter. The
fruit is small and round, about one-


quarter inch in diameter. The dwarf
holly grows fairly rapidly and
makes an excellent ground cover. It
is not very particular about the soil
type it is planted in and will grow
most anywhere.
Youpon holly also provides food
for our winged friends. Many types
of birds including the eastern blue-'
bird, American robin, northern
mockingbird and bobwhite quail
are attracted to the bright red
berries.
Many mammals, such as the
nine-banded armadillo, American
black bear, fray fox,.raccoons and
skunks also love to snack on the
fruit. The leaves and twigs are
browsed by white-tailed deer. It
serves as an important food source
especially in the winter when other
fare may be scarce. The foliage
provides cover and nesting sites for
many critters as well.
You can see that this hardy
holly is easy to grow, versatile,
attractive and a wildlife attractor.
But it has been useful throughout
history for other reasons as well.
The Native Americans used the
leaves and stems to brew a tea
called black drink or asi. This
drink was consumed only by the
males of the tribes and was used as
purification in their ceremonies
and rituals. The reason the plant
was named Ilex vomitoria nana is
because when consumed, the plant
would cause many of those who

drank it to vomit.
There are many theories on the
reason the plant caused this reac-
tion. The Europeans, after watch-
ing the ritual, believed that just by
consuming the drink, one would
upchuck. However, it is said that
the reason the reaction was caused
is simply because the plant con-
tains caffeine and when drinking
great quantities of it, after intense
fasting, the result is obvious.
.Another theory is that if:the
drink was not prepared properly


the end result would be that by
consuming it one would vomit. The
Indians would dry the leaves until
they turned black and crumbly, and
then steep them in hot water. If the
leaves were used without going
through this drying process, the
digestive system would be upset.
The beautiful dark green foliage
and bright red berries make the
plant popular at Christmas for dec-
orations. The plants are often
trimmed into hedges for natural
screening or borders and used in


the art of topiary or plant sculpture
since it prunes so easily.
Propagation of the plant is rela-
tively easy. It sprouts readily from
roots and birds also help with dis-
persal. It grows in scrub, upland .
forests and even coastal areas and
can be grown from seeds or soft ;
wood cuttings. Dwarf youpon holly
will be one of the plants offered at
the Air Potato Exchange Day on
Jan. 9.
The first of four workshops on
Florida's invasive exotic plants is
scheduled for Sept. 18 at 1 p.m. at
the Bert J. Harris Agriculture
Center Auditorium. There is no
charge and participants will have
the opportunity to learn about and
identify the different types of
exotics in Highlands County. There
will be door prizes and refresh-
ments.
It will also be a chance to find
out more about the upcoming Air
Potato Exchange Day where a free
native plant will be offered in
exchange for a bag of air potato
bulbs. If you want more informa-
tion on the program, feel free to
call me at (863) 402-6545.

(see the white area where he was shaved). That's Jack's head, with his tongue lolling out,

Jack was ready to go home only a few hours later.


Must love dogs


... and


cats and hard work


First a little housekeeping.
This column is becoming
- actually already is - an
occasional feature.
The reason is that
Highlands County is evolv-
ing, facing challenges as it
does so. There are new
ideas, special events, unusu-
al happenings and all kinds
of stuff going on in the
street.
Countless decisions are
being made, the public is
taking action,-and new poli-
cies are being formulated; all
while new businesses start
and old businesses fade.
Which is the long-winded'
way of saying we reporters
are busy.
But, neither my editors
nor I want "Tuffin' It With
Tuffley" to disappear alto-
gether.
So, when you (and some-
times I) least expect it, I'll
get to have an adventure and
take you along with me.
For example, on Oct. 24, 1
will be walking the time pre-
diction 5K organized by
Chet Brojek at Highlands
Hammock State Park. The
run/walk benefits his friend
Joe Jenkins, who is living
with amyotrophic lateral
sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's) dis-
ease. My fellow writer, Trey
Christy - who regularly
places in 5Ks around the
state - will be having a '
separate one-on-one compe-
tition with me.
Now to today's story.
Recently, I had the pleas-
ure of spending the day at
the Sebring Animal Hospital,
a place where the patients-
can't speak.
What an experience.
Typically I'll spend three
or four hours at a work site.
It's all the time I can afford.
But the subject proved to
be so interesting, the differ-
ent things being done so fas-

cinating, and the people so
friendly and able to answer
questions that I stayed eight
hours and even then had to
pull myself away.
Here's the bottom line: If
you like animals, can multi-
task,2aren't afraid of hard
work' and messes, are curi-
ous, can pay attention to
detail and people when they
speak, are physically strong,
patient, caring, firm, brave,
self-starting, and have an
imagination - well then,
you just might make a good
veterinarian's assistant.
In Dr. Larry Jernigen's
hospital, which he carries on
after his dad, Dr. William
Jernigen, there are two wait-
ing rooms - -one for cats,
one for dogs. Behind those,
and the office, are a line of
examination rooms. Behind
them are the treatment room
and the surgery.
I only entered an examina-
tion room once. I was rush-
ing to clean up after a dog.
It had become clear that
this was a shadow assign-.
ment - the work needing
special skills and involving
live mammals, so when a
call came over the intercom
- sounding just like a gro-
cery: "clean-up in room two"
- I leapt into action, glad of
something I could do. Only
by the time I got there, the

dog's owner had already
taken care of the mess.
. Instead, I spent my time
mostly in the treatment
room, and the surgery.
I am pleased to report I
didn't faint or get sick.
Jernigen spayed a cat,
removed a fatty tumor from
Jack the black lab, and
pulled my dog's tooth.
What surprised me was
the lack of blood. I expected
it to gush. Instead, it was a
thin layer of shiny red over
another layer of yellowish
white.
And Jernigen didn't make
long deep cuts, which I had
also expected. He cut with a
blade that looked like an
exacto knife and made short,
shallow cuts, one layer at a
time.
It was the assistants who
got the animals ready for
surgery. They gave injec-
tions of tranquilizers and
antibiotics. They shaved the
animals and applied antisep-
tic. Then, when it was time
for the animal's procedure, it
was the assistants who
administered the anesthesia
and inserted the intubation
tube used during the opera-

There are least 29 different parasites in Florida that can
affect dogs. Some, like hook worm, can also affect humans,
which is one reason it is important to pick up after your
pets.

tion.
Dogs received the anes-
thesia through a cone-shaped
mask. Cats were placed in
plastic bins with the medica-
tion piped in.
The assistants trimmed
nails, cleaned teeth, checked
feces and administered inoc-
ulations.
At one point the treatment
room was stuffed with a
pack of seven blue tick
hounds, in for their annual


check-up. They were tested
for parasites like heart-
worms and were given their
shots.
I have to say these dogs
were friendly and coopera-
tive, really lovely animals '
and no trouble despite their
number. But keeping track
of which one was which was
a real challenge, because

DATELINE: Highlands County YOU OWE IT TO Y(


Is the government going to "charge" you
$1,500 if you don't replace your old, inefficient,
air conditioner?

Some experts have predicted that the cost of"
electricity will skyrocket. And since residential
air conditioning is one of the biggest users of
electricity, the new Stimulus Package contains
a substantial incentive for upgrading your old
air conditioner to a new high efficiency model.

USE IT OR LOSE IT?

It seems,as though you are going to "pay" for a
new, more efficient, air conditioner whether
you get one or not, If you replace your old
system you might be eligible for up to $1,500
in tax benefits. And, if you wait too long, you
may lose the tax credit, and pay a much higher
utility bill.
One more thing. Next year (2010) a new law
will make most existing air conditioners
effectively obsolete! This is a law banning the
manufacturing of air conditioners using the
refrigerant R-22. When that happens, I predict
that the cost of this refrigerant will also
skyrocket, which means your old air
conditioner could become very expensive to
repair.

Realtors understand the
importance of education
and the need to have the

constantly seeking educa-

must complete continuing'
education requirements to
maintain their licenses,
including mandatory

and cash donations to the

Veterinarian's assistants

never sloW down


Continued from 12B
exactly alike.
Which brings me to per-
haps the assistants' most
important function - keep-
ing track of the paperwork.
, When they weren't help-
ing Jernigen, or injecting
animals, or handling dogs, or
lifting cats, or doing laundry,
pr mopping floors, or stock-
ing shelves, or sterilizing
instruments, or talking to
owners, or answering
phones, or calming nervous
patients, or working the
microscope looking for
intestinal parasites, the assis-
tants were filling in forms,
writing reports and recording
treatments.
In the entire eight hours I
was there, nobody stopped
for a minute. The women
were on their feet, constantly
rnoving.
I stole a minute every now
and then, using the excuse of
writing my notes, to sit
down on a stool.
In my own defense, I
worked at a handicap. My
JLlergies blossomed with the
extravagance of roses. Just
leaning over made my nose
e


pour like Niagra Falls. I
pent the day with 'a box of
tissues tucked under one'
arm, producing gales of
sneezes which came and
went with the fury hurricane
band .
SThe vast number of veteri-
nary assistants are trained on
the job. In Florida there are
only one or two schools
which even have a program.
The closest is St. Pertersburg
Junior College.
While it is always helpful
to understand the theory
behind the practice, this is a
practical occupation, filled
with physical tasks. Learning
on the job is a fine way to
'go.
My thanks to Dr. Larry
'and his impressive staff:
Karen Catarelli, Diane
Ferrell and Sue Pollen who
man the office; and veteri-
nary assistants Angie
Catarelli, Ann Durbano,
Missy Gillian, Chelsea
Longabaugh, Kathy Root,
Tiffany Tolentino and
William Watson who were
all there that day and made
the assignment a pleasure, as
well as fun.

In addition everything else they do, vet assistants are
responsible for keeping everything clean. Here Missie
Gillilan washes out a plastic bin used to administer anes-
thesia to cats. A cover is paced on the bin and the sleep
inducing gas is introduced through a tube on one side. The
animals typically recover within minutes once the gas is
