Sandra Seetaram has been a substitute teacher for several years and often works at Woodlawn Elementary
School, where she was teaching a class Thursday morning.



Stocking up on subs


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - With the unem-
ployment rate so high in Highlands
County, many former workers are&
turning into substitute teachers.
"We definitely have a more
qualified pool now than say four
or five years ago because people
that had'degrees had jobs," said
Vivianne Waldron, director of
Human Resources, Recruitment
- and Professional Development for
the Highlands County School
District. "We are getting people
from lots of former careers and we
appreciate the experiences they
bring to the classroom."
But with the district looking at
cutting teacher positions last year,
teacher absences were at a low
point, Waldron said. *
About 330 substitute teachers


County may hire
more substitute
teachers to be
ready if swine flu
causes absences
were in the substitute system to fill
roughly 50 positions each day.
"That really-turned out to be too
many," Waldron said.
The district stopped accepting
applications for substitute teachers
early this year, and only hired a
few more during the summer.
Right now, there are about 300 .
substitutes on the roll, but with
H1N1 swine flu in the school sys-
tem, according to Highlands
County Health Department


Administrator Robert Palussek, the
district may need to be ready for a
few extra teacher absences.
"It's a brand new ball game with
things going on," Waldron said.
"With HIN1 possibly looming out
there we do want to be.prepared."
So far this year, student
absences are slightly higher when
compared to the first eight days of
2008, Deputy Superintendent
Rodney Hollinger said, but so far
the teacher absentee rate is about
the same.
"If we start having teachers out
with illness we might need more,"
Hollinger said. "That's an issue for
discussion and thought here in the
near future."
Waldron said the district has ten-
tatively scheduled hiring another

Health Dept.: H1N1 is here, but isn't severe


By TREY CHRISTY

SEBRING - Since May, Highlands County
has seen 31 confirmed cases of HINI swine
flu.
According to Leona Braithwaite, epidemi-
ologist with the Highlands County Health
Department, the disease is so widespread. that
the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention have stopped testing individual
cases. Instead, they are focusing on cases that
require hospitalization and outbreaks within a
community.
As far as the severity of the disease, except
in certain risk groups it is no worse than the

seasonal flu, she said, which is why the CDC
placed it at severity level two of five on their
severity index - the same level as the sea-
sonal flu.
Still, the local health department is work-
ing with the Highlands County School
Board, the Highlands County Sheriffs
Office and other community partners to
assure the CDC guidelines are followed to
help keep.the spread to a minimum.

This is the first rendering of the City
of Sebring's new logo presented to the
city council at its regular Tuesday
night meeting. It will be used on sta-
tionary, city buildings and vehicles.
While the city council was generally
enthusiastic, the consensus was the
word Sebring should be a darker
color to pop it out from the back-
ground design. An amended version
will be presented at the next council
meeting. Walz Ideation created the
design.

Power plant project could be costly


City wants to cover up broken
windows at Park Street site
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - The Sebring City Council
has been debating what to do about the poor
condition of the windows in the vacant Park
Street Power Plant.
Currently, the council is embarrassed that
the building does not meet city code regula-
tions.
There are 17 windows that need to be fixed.
Stewart Construction has estimated it will
cost $1,825 to secure and enclose each win-
dow, for a cost of $31,025.
In addition, rather than have blank wood
facing the street, the city council is looking


into dressing up the window coverings.
One option is having graphics applied to
the boards. The process would be the same as
creating a highway billboard using a plastic
wrap.
However, the graphics created by Walz
Ideation would cost $3,900 per window for a
cost of $66,300 - or a grand total of $97,325
for the entire job.
Because of that high cost, and the fact that
the graphics would only have a three-year
non-fade guarantee, the council is still con-
sidering options.
These range from simply painting the
boarded windows a single color to asking the
Highlands Art League to create miniature
murals.

Just keep it clean and
legal.
I'm calling about the con-
cerned citizens over the train-
ing center page printed. I was
at that meeting when the
county commission OKed the
progression of that training
center and besides not
informing the people around
it, they also had the opportu-
nity to have the training cen-
ter pay for all of the roadway
work that is going to lead to
the training center and chose
not to. Instead, putting that
burden on the taxpayer to
upgrade and expand and
widen the roadways there,
which I thought was totally
wrong.
And, on top of that, with
the'cost of the impact fee
being waived for a year, all of
these huge plans that would
have benefited the taxpayers
with the impact fees are now
going to be lost to the tax-
payers of Highlands County.
And if we get the administra-
tion to do research on exactly
how much impact fees we've
already lost with the pro-
grams that are going to be
coming in place for the next
year compared to what the
regular Highlands County
person who had to pay the
impact fee - which is mostly
individual homeowners and
small developments that paid
a large amount of impact fee,
the people that it's really sup-
posed to impact and help -
it's being turned around. They
are charging the normal citi-
zen who has been here all
their life for the addition to
their home for the past cou-
ple of years since the impact
has been in place and all of
these huge developments that
are now going to take place
and be accepted in in this
year that we don't have the
impact fees we're going to, as
a taxpayer, have to have the
main burden of all these new
things coming in. That's one
of my main concerns for
today.
I want people to step up
and start speaking up. When
you are the only person in the
council or commission meet-
ing it's hard. You can have
say when you oppose some-
thing, but when there is only
one person standing up there
is absolutely nothing that the
county commission or city
council listen to because you
are just one voice and they
figure their voices are larger
than yours. Everybody get
out and have your say at the
meetings for a change. It
would really help us to get
these commissioners and
councilmen back on line.

A grass-roots effort


Kiwanis join

Aktion Club to

help elderly

Special to the News-Sun,
AVON PARK - A couple
of Kiwanis members joined
efforts with the Aktion
Club to help three elderly
residents who needed lawn
care services.
Wade and Kathi
Taveniere, members of the
Kiwanis Club of Sebring,
jumped at the chance to
work on a community serv-
ice project with members
of the Aktion Club on Aug.
29. The club chose to help
clients served by Nu-Hope
Elder Care Services Inc.
who desperately needed
lawn care.
Wade Taveniere admitted
that he joined the Kiwanis.
to do community service
and was really excited to
see the Aktion Club doing
so many good projects. He
and his wife could not
resist jumping aboard to
help with the yard cleaning.
Aktion Club is sponsored
by the Kiwanis Club of
Sebring and consists of
more. than 40 adult citizens
who are developmentally
disadvantaged. Their goal
is to do service projects so
they can give back to the
community that helps them.
They did not charge for any
of the work that they did
for the elderly residents.
The Tavenieres were the
crew leaders of one of the

Aktion Club members who
spent the morning trimming
trees and bushes away from
the roadside, house and
mailbox at Rebecca
Bradley's home off State
Road 17.
"I cleaned the yard and
tied up branches," Aktion
Club members Greg
Robinson said. "I like the
teamwork."
"I got to use the
weedeater," Aktion Club
member Steve Sealy said
with a wide grin.
Ronnie James also helped
his fellow Aktion Club
members at the Bradley
home.
"They did a wonderful
job. They were great. They
worked very hard and I was


very grateful," Bradley said
about the Aktion Club.
"They cut up the branches
from my entrance and bun-
dled them. I had a bunch of
brush off to the side and
they put it all in bags for
me too. They can come
back any time."
The workers could not
have come at a perfect time
because Bradley had just
been notified by the post
office a few days before-

trim the tree above her
mailbox because it was
scratching the top of the
mail truck. She tried to
reach the branches earlier
in the week but realized it
was impossible since she

Republican Party

fundraiser turns into

community outreach


Free tickets to
Labor Day BBQ
available for
unemployed
By ED BALDRIDGE
edbaldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - What start-
ed out as a fundraiser for
the Highlands County
Republican Party on Labor
Day has turned into a com-
munity event that is offer-
ing a free meal to the
unemployed.
But according to Warren
Wolfe, owner of Woody's
RV Resort at 4414 U.S. 27
South in Sebring, where the
event will be held on
Monday from 11 a.m. until
4 p.m., the current reces-
sion has turned the event
into an opportunity for
some of those unemployed.
The tickets state that the
event is sponsored by the
Highlands County
Republican Party in order
to honor American labor.
"As we were organizing
the fundraiser, we decided
that with the economy, we
would try to give back
some," said Wolfe. A total
of 200 tickets to the event
- which are $10 each -
are being given away to the
unemployed.
The meal will consist of
BBQ chicken, green beans,
kettle corn, and watermelon
for desert.
"As we did the ticket
count last night, we discov-
ered that with those who
are donating, we might just
break even on this event,
, but the goal is not to raise
money, the goal is to help
out.
"I read that the unem-
ployment is 12.4 .percent in
Highlands County, but if


you factor in those whose
benefits have run out it is
probably closer to 16 per-
cent," Wolfe said.
According to Wolfe, the
event will also have space
for employers to set up
booths and hand out infor-
mation about their compa-
nies and potential jobs, and
that the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office and the
Veteran's Administration
have been invited to share
their information.
"If we can find one to 10
jobs for folks, we will be
happy. This is not a politi-
cal event, but a chance to
potentially help some fami-
lies," Wolfe said.
"People are hurting out
there. I am a retired police
officer and have some of
that police tape that I am
going to put up to section
off the area because .the
current state of the econo-
my is a crime."
Wolf also said that
Walgreens Pharmacy would
be on hand giving out flu
shots as.
"Walgreens will give you
the shot that regularly costs
$24.95 and file that with
your insurance, Medicaid
or Medicare for you. I think
that is a pretty good deal as
well.
"They are showing their
concern for the community
by making that available,"'
Wolfe said.
Tickets for the event are
available at the News-Sun,
Habitat for Humanity, and
Woody's RV.
To get one of the free
tickets, you have to be able
to prove you are unem-
ployed.
Or, to reach Wolfe, you
can call him at 385-0500.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL

Cheers to Bates and Maxcy, now fix the jail


C heers to Commissioner Guy Maxcy and-
Commissioner Don Bates for recognizing the
need for a new sheriff's building at the last com-
missioner meeting.


The News-Sun has always supported
the idea of a new building, and for good
reason.
The ever-changing needs in law
enforcement dictate that in a growing
county like ours, the sheriff has to grow
to keep pace,.and to keep the peace.
New times, and new technology, call
for upgrades every so often, and the cur-
rent situation in the old jail does not
allow for that to happen.
When the jail was built, it was perfect
for the times and the predictions were
that it would last 50 years or more.
Well, it has done that, but the old girl
is starting to really show her age.
A recent engineering study proves
that the old facility is not only inade-
quate to meet every need from the
Americans With Disabilities Act to zon-
ing occupancies, but that there are haz-
ards to the continued usage of those
buildings that are built haphazardly over
the years.
According to Sheriff Susan Benton at
the last commissioner meeting, the
potential for disaster because of the
improper back-up of the cramped 911

service in The Armed Forces
of The United States.
I am a West Point gradu-
ate who served honorably for
six years in service of my
country but would I lay
claim to a burial spot in the
hallowed grounds of
Arlington National? No way,
no how, not eligible. I would
not even pretend to request
burial in my sacred alma
mater cemetery at The
United States Military
Academy wherein lie Major
Walter B Tully, KIA VN, and
my roommate for four years,
Capt Ralph Wensinger,
USAF, KIA VN, Capt Kirby
Kapp USA KIA VN, Capt
Richard Jordan USA KIA
VN - all esteemed company
mates for four years at West
Point and the list goes on
and on, five of my company
classmates from the Class of
1959 KIA VN and some 70
more just from my class of
499 KIA VN.
That the Kennedy Family
should lay claim to the most
prestigious and visible plot
in all of Arlington, that they
should have an eternal flame


call center could cause a major outage
and could cost lives if changes are not
made.
The ducts are in such bad shape that
there is a potential for respiratory prob-
lems and other health hazards, but what
is really exciting is the sewage smell.
That's got to be a pleasant working
environment.
But some at the county level believe
that they can continue to be slum lords
and put the needs 'of public safety
behind those of platting new lots when
90,000 empty lots already exist.
Or how about all the money now
spent towards the studies at Wesby
Ranch, Lake Placid Groves and Blue
Head Ranch for developments with no
agreements or ordinances?
The taxpayer will have to eat those
bills because of the lack of oversight
and mistakes.
County Administrator Michael Wright
told commissioners on Tuesday that he
was "setting any left over money aside"
for future county buildings, and that the
jail was certainly a priority.
And the $400,000 plus principal and

burning in their honor, is
blasphemy. I could never
honor the dead at Arlington
without feeling the shadow
of the pretenders, the politi-
cians and the undeserving.

Term limits needed
Editor:
I sat and watched the
Senator Kennedy memorial
on Fox News. The journal-
ists on there were first class,
as were the pundants.
I have never been a fan of
Sen. Kennedy, and his pass-
ing certainly hasn't changed
my mind. For you see, I
study history, and Teddy cer-
tainly had plenty of it. From
a swim in the creek for two,
where only one returned, to
his burial, Sen Kennedy cer-
tainly made headlines.
The patriarch of the
Kennedy clan was a human
being after all to all in his
family. The testimonials
were gracious and at times
humorous. Sen, Kennedy
touched and affected many
lives in his 47-year tenure in
Congress. He worked with
many Republicans, especial-
ly Orrin Hatch, senator from
Utah.
At the end of the day, Sen.
Kennedy may have battled
on the floor of the Senate
with many from the other
side of the aisle, but they
would go and have a drink
or a cigar, or both.
This brings me to my
point of this commentary.
If they could get along so
well privately, then why did
they not work more closely
with one another for t he
good of all the American
people? Having these details
exposed because the man has
passed, to me, does not make
things easier for the men and
women left behind in the


interest in last year's budget for the
sheriff's building is getting rolled into
that new "building fund."
Since the jail is a priority, why not use
that money Wright has set aside to fix
the jail now.
Why wait?
Many times the argument used by
Wright is that contractors are hungry
and costs per square foot is down for
buildings or renovations. In fact, county
staff has been quoted as saying that
those costs are coming in "a lot lower
than we expected."
Why force our law enforcement
employees to work under those slum
conditions when there is money now
available for repairs?
Take the opportunity of the sheriff's
move to the newly leased administrative
offices to fix the problems.
Hats off to Bates and Maxcy for
standing their ground and recognizing
the need for a modern sheriff's building
no matter how hard Wright argued at the
last meeting, but could we please go
ahead and fix the old jail now and not
wait for the new building that may be
two to three years off?
The job is good so far, but there is
still some work to do, and Highlands
County taxpayers no longer want to be
known as "slum lords."

U.S. Congress. Will they
work together? Will they get
off this harmful slope of ,
healthcare reform? Will Sen.
Kennedy's death embolden
the Democrats to steam roll
the opposite side and
become much more partisan?
We, as Americans, must
not get caught up in the
emotions and sentimental
feelings of a memorial well
covered. The Senator was an
icon, but he was only a man
- a man that was in the U.S.
Senate for 47 years.
Shouldn't we really revisit
term limits?
Sen, Kennedy will be
sadly missed, especially by
his family. The end of a
dynasty, now we must ask
for term limits.

America's motto
sounds good
Editor:
America?
The home of the brave and
the land of the free.
Sounds good. Yes, it was
at one time. Then one day
along the road in the early
1960s prayer was taken out
of the school system. The
results? Well, look around
my friends - and if you want
a good cry, look in the mir-
ror. Who's responsible? Us.
We have sat back and let
Satan and his little imps take,
over our great nation. Shame
on us.
Back in the late 1980s or
early 1990s, the Navy chap-
lains were ordered not to
pray in the Lord Jesus Christ
name. No president had the
guts to give an executive
order to reverse this horrible
order. I know of one presi-
dent who was given a peti-
tion to stop this, but he
refused. Many chaplains had
to leave the service for this

reason. We had our chaplain
talk on the radio whereas he
had to retire and he said they
even took his pension away
from him.
Are we a "Christian
nation," you tell me?
Friends, we reap what we
sow. Yes I know there are
those who say we are a
Christian nation, but
Scriptures teach us that there
is one mediator between man
and God, the Lord Jesus
Christ. We cannot even talk
to God unless we talk
through our Savior Jesus
Christ. We are nothing out-
side of Christ. All have
sinned and if one thinks they
are going to get away with
their evil way, I have news
for them. There is a judg-
ment day coming when
every knee will bow and
answer for their sins, down
here in this world.
God loves us all and He
gave His son Jesus to die for
our sins, but we must go to
Him and ask forgiveness.
For us Christians, let's
keep on serving the Lord,
witnessing to others and
telling them what the Lord
has done for them and how
he will give them a peace in
their heart that they have
never had. The Lord is com-
ing soon. Let us work for
Him and His kingdom. Let
us enjoy the new life He has
promised us. Bless the Lord.

"I'm just amazed to be
nominated is just such an
honor," Bass said over the
phone Thursday morning.
"That someone in the com-
munity would trust me and
nominate me, well, I'm just
amazed."
The Goldes have helped
children for over 40 years.
First they owned their own
day-care facility, then in
1983 Irene began working at
Heartland Christian School
as a K-4 teacher and pre-
school director. After retiring
in 2004 she drove a school
bus and substituted in the
classroom, coming back as
pre-school director in 2007,
only this time as a volunteer.
She also works as a. youth
leader and teaches Sunday
School. Bernie volunteers his
time and labor whenever they
are .needed. Thursday he
worked at installing a canopy
at the school to provide shade
on the playground.
Both Goldes said they
were overwhelmed and that
being nominated was an
honor itself.
"It's just my turn to give
back," Irene said. "Working
with children, changing lives,
God is good."
Lumpkin has directed the
Avon Park Community Child
Development Center since
1982, almost from its incep-
tion. This is Lumpkin's sec-
ond nomination, the first
coming in 2008.
"This year I'm more
ready," Lumpkin said
Thursday morning. "Last
year there was someone bet-
ter qualified, and I didn't
want to win. I was delighted
when Jackie Rawlings was
honored."
Lumpkin said she's had to
make a major decision in
becoming director of APC-
CDC. She \\as working for
the school board at the time,
and changing jobs meant giv-
ing up her hcnclit package, at
least until the center could
become settled and provide
one itself. The main reasons
she made the sacrifice,
Lumpkin said, was "I didn't
want the center to fail before
it began" and in appreciation
of the many mentors who had
backed both her and the cen-
ter.
'White has taught school in
Highlands County for 37
years, first at Lake Placid
High School, where he taught
social studies and govern-
ment. After retiring from that
position, White moved on to
the Lake Placid Christian
School, where he currently
teaches social studies in sixth
through eighth grades.
White has reached out to
other children as well. After a
mission trip to the Dominican
Republic in the 1980s, where
he and fellow church mem-
bers helped rebuild an
orphanage destroyed by a
hurricane, the group decided
to follow up on their work.
They created a non-denomi-
national . Christian tax-
exempt organization, which
operates out the Memorial

How they're selected


By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY

om
SEBRING -
'Nominations for the Judge
Clifton M. Kelly
Champion for Children
Award, an annual honor
created by the Children's
Services Council and
Foundation to highlight
the work done by child
advocates in the communi-
ty, come from the general
public. Typically, there are
from. 20 to 25 nominations
each year.
In addition to the award
itself, the recipient is
given an Alaskan cruise
and sits for the year as an
honorary member of the
Children's Service's
Council.
Selecting the recipient
is done in two steps by two
separate committees.
The screening commit-
tee goes through the nomi-
nations and chooses a
short list of five to 10
finalists. These individuals
are then asked for more
detailed information."
The selection committee
then reviews the nominat-
ing material and the state-
ments by the finalists,
choosing a recipient.
The choice remains a
closely guarded secret
until the night of the gala
when it is announced at
the end of the evening.
There is a set of criteria
for the screening commit-
tee to follow: Candidates
must reside in Highlands
County; demonstrate a
deep caring desire to help
children; have'taken action


Placid to raise funds and pro-
vide guidance for the orphan-
age as well as hospitals and
churches in the Dominican.
Another mission has recently
been established in St.
Petersburg, Russia.
White is particularly
touched by his nomination
because he knew Judge Kelly
personally. As a social stud-
ies teacher at Lake Placid
High School back in the
1970s, be regularly took his
classes into Kelly's court-
room.
"There was a lot of love in
the man," White said. "He


to address a problem fac-
ing children or youth; and
provided five years of
service directly affecting
the well-being of children.
Candidates may be
nominated more than
once, but current members
or staff of the Children's
Services Council or
Foundation are not eligi-
ble.
The selection committee
applies additional criteria.
The recipient of the award
is someone who addresses
a broad need or problem,
affecting the largest num-
ber of children or youth,
while demonstrating a
long-term committee pri-
marily at the local level.
The recipient gives per-
sonal volunteer service
over and above expecta-
tions, and promotes con-
tinuation and expansion of
the service by enrolling
others.
The gala, while primari-
ly an opportunity to honor
the child advocates in the
community, is also the
major fund raiser for the
Children's Ser\ ices
Foundation and its range
of programs. These
include the Children's
Advocacy Center, Family
Safehouse, Kinsley L. Cox
Memorial Fund (which
provides non-medical
assistance to families with
financial burdens and seri-
ously ill children), and the
We Care Hotline.

was a .compassionate man,
especially with children.
When the trial (we were
observing) ended, he would
come out and talk to the kids,
explaining what had hap-
pened and why."
The News-Sun was unable
to contact the final candidate,
Joe Calangelo.
Calangelo has dedicated
34 years to the Boy Scouts of
America.
He was recently 'awarded
the "Distinguished Citizen's
Award" by the local Calusa
District of the Boy Scouts of
America.

degrees or above) is gone,
without fever reducing med-
icine," said a press release
by Tom Moran, planning
consultant with the Health
Department.
Staying at home means
staying at home, except for
seeking medical care related
visits, Moran said.
It is advised that pregnant
women and children under
the age of 5 with medical
conditions such as asthma,
diabetes, or neurological
disorders that develop flu-
like symptoms seek medical
attention as they are mem-
bers of the high-risk group
and may develop serious
complications.
At a Thursday press con-
ference, the Health
Department stressed prevena-
tion, which included advis-
ing parents to have a plan
ready if a child needs to stay
home from school.
' They said parents should
have a plan for between
three and seven days, which
is the typical period of time
the disease is contagious.

"If things hit we may
consider having another

75 to our current number,"
she said.
'With what the district
has seen recently, it should-
n't be hard for them to find
qualified applicants.
"We had a lot more subs
because many people lost
their jobs and wanted to get
on the sub list so they
could have some sort of
income," Waldron said.
She called the applicants
a "diverse population."
"We have had people
that have had doctorate
degrees - one gentleman
was a chemist, one had
been a former principal and
moved down here and
wanted to sub," she said.
"We also have local people
that are high school gradu-

"I raked the yard. I am good at raking,"

Substitute teachers get

level of education.
Minimum requirements are

"We value our substi-

school system."


Monk, Ricky Marino and Rose Tilley
worked under the direction of Roberta
Creech and Ralph Meyers at Luther Bums'
home.
"I was unsure how would afford to
have that work done. I am very thankful
for the wonderful job they did," Bums
said.
Meyers, who is president of the Aktion
Club, said, "Everybody worked hard and I
think it was a huge success. The gentleman
we went to was very. very happy He said it
looked good and it looks like someone
actually lives there now."
In reference to working with the
Kiwanis, Meyers said "I enjoyed that and
maybe we can work together on more proj-
ects in the future."

The press conference also
addressed the misconcep-
tions that more than 100 stu-
dents at Highlands County
schools had the swine flu.
They called them "miscon-
ceptions" and "uncon-
firmed."
"Do we have cases and
will we see more in the

flu is in the schools as is. it
everywhere else," Moran
said in the press release.
As of the week ending
August 22, a total of 8,843
hospitalizations and 556
deaths associated with the

DINING OUT

-TIPPING-

* In America, most food service work-;
ers make well below the minimum
wage. Tips usually make up the bulk
of their income.
* When dining out, the standard tip for
a table server is 15-20% of the before
tax total of your bill. Keep in mind
that your server usually has to share
that tip with other kitchen and dining
area personnel.
* Exceptional service, accommodation
for special requests and-an exception-
ally long stay at the table all warrant
extra tipping for service.
* Remember that the waitperson
should not be held responsible if you
don't like the food - you are tipping
them for their sern ice, not the chef's
cooking (or lack of) abilities
* Occasionally, restaurants %\ ill place
an automatic charge for service on
the bill (generally if there is a large
number of people at the table), so be
sure to check your bill first.

Lady Devils start season


by leashing-the Bulldogs


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.comn
FROSTPROOF - It
was a different Lady Devil
volleyball team that
walked onto the court at
Jim Boyd Gym and took
down Frostproof 25-13,
25-23, 25-12 on Tuesday.
And everyone hopes
they can maintain that level
of play over the upcoming
season.
"We are starting to mesh
out there now," said a smil-
ing Avon Park Head Coach
Stephanie Devil after the
game. "The work all week
has been focusing on
returning the serves, and it
has paid off. The girls are
moving their feet, and
focusing on assignments.
This match was a big
improvement over the pre-
season tournament."
"Now we need too make
sure and work more on our
communication," she
added.
The Avon Park gals
showed they had the skills
as Zakia Hart racked up
nine kills, her last one for
the game point, and two
aces.
Heather Bass had four
kills and three aces, show-
ing much improvement,
and Lady Devil Tia Nobles
also showed prowess with
six kills and one ace, but
the surprise came from
freshmen Teresa Devlin
and Ashley Chacon whose
services ruled the court all
night.
The young Devlin had a
run in the last game and put
five aces in her pocket,
four of them in a row giv-
ing the Red Devils the lead
at a critical time - she
ended the night with seven

total.
Chacon's consistent
service totaled up five aces
for the night.
According to Coach
Devlin both reminded her
of last year's standout
server, Danielle (Shotgun)
Tomlinson.


"Remember Shotgun?
They both serve as well as
Shotgun did last year,"
coach Devlin said.
The players echoed the
coach's read on the team.
"We had good teamwork
tonight," said the younger

Your Quick ulde T Week's Action


Avon Park

at

Frostproof

Avon Park 0-0; Frostproof 0-0
History
This Highlands and Polk cross-county
matchup dates back to 1928, among
the oldest rivalries in state annals.
Avon Park leads the overall series 54-
22-1, but dropped last year's contest,
34-6, to the Bulldogs.


Avon Parki Came up just short of
North Port, 14-12, in Kickoff Classic.
Frostproof: Lost at home to George
Jenkins of Lakeland, 21-14.
Game Notes
a Tonight's game will be the 78th in
the long-standing rivalry between the
Red Devils and Bulldogs.
* Defensive end/wide receiver
Steven Robinson is quesitonable with
a leg injury.
Coach Spak
Avon Park's Andy Bonjokian: "We
have improved some from last week,
and we have worked on our
conditioning and assignments.
Frostproof has so many different
weapons, we will have to play hard.
Offensively we could go to the air or
to the ground, to counter, but either
way we will have our hands full."




All game


Lake Placid

VS.

Sebring
Records
Lake Pladd 0-0; Sebring 0-0
History
This series has been marked by stops and starts, with the Blue Streaks and
Green Dragons meeting for the first time in 1931, but then not-again for another
38 years.The two teams then faced off from '69-'77 before taking another break
until '82. Upon that restarting of the rivalry, the teams met every year through
'96 before taking another two-year break before it became the norm for the
teams to square off in annual Kickoff Classics. Sebring leads, overall, 20-5.
Last Week
Lake Placid:The Dragons couldn't muster much up offensively as Hardee
topped them 41-0 in the Kickoff Classic at Roger Scarborough Memorial
Stadium.
Sebring: Racked up four first-quarter touchdowns en route to a 49-0 trouncing
of Gateway Charter.
Game Notes
* Tonight marks the first meeting between the county rivals since '06.
* Sebring comes into the game in relative good health, with head coach Jared
Hamlin citing the usual bumps and bruises teams will be feeling for the rest of
the season.
* Lake Placid has one injury to report as Laurent Lollis is out for 'a week or
two' with an injured elbow.


Coach Speak
Lake Placid's Jason Holden: "We
are excited to get the regular season
kicked off and to be playing Sebring
again.The kids and the community are
looking forward to playing some of the
local schools again. We had a lot to
work on after Hardee and the kids did
a good job. Monday was a good day
but was a little off on Tuesday, but
then came back and had a great day
on Wednesday."


Coach Speak
Sebring's Jared Hamlin: "It's a 15-
mile rivalry.Their kids are going to
come out wanting to beat us, we're
going to come out wanting to beat
them. We do have things we want to
work on, improve the things we did
last week. There are a lot of things
that we've got to get better at. I'm
expecting a big crowd, with a lot of
people coming out to support both
programs."

Lady Green Dragons weren't
exactly welcoming hosts as
Fort Meade took it's first
swings in their new district.
Lake Placid rolled to a
three-game match win
Tuesday night over the Lady
Miners, starting off the new
district where they left off in
the old one.
"We really didn't know
much about them," head
coach Marilyn Jones said.
"All we knew is that they had
a lot of players coming back,
but we haven't played them
so we really didn't know."
It didn't take long to find
out that, despite a lot of new
faces, the winning program
that Jones now has in place is
having a carry-over effect.
And it was one of those
new faces that made a'n
immediate impact as Marissa
Baldwin racked up two kills
and a scoring block in the
opening-game, 25-7 win.
Of course, it was a familiar
face also doing plenty of dam-
age as Sierra Weaver two kills
and five service aces with her
rocket-like jump-serve.
"Sierra played very well
tonight," Jones said.
"Marissa had a great night
for us. She's young and fac-
ing the varsity level and I
was real happy with how she
played."
Elizabeth Barragan got
into the scoring act in the
second game, serving three
aces in a row and five overall
.during a 9-0 scoring run to
blow open what had been a
tight contest.
Weaver added four more
kills and Kayla Summerfield
and Alana Neilander each.
added one while Jerica
Worley came up with a block

Sophomore Marissa Baldwin stepped it up Tuesday night, coming up with three blocks, an
ace and two kills for the Lady Dragons Tuesday night.


in the 25-13 win.
Going for the sweep, Lake
Placid jumped out early to a
4-0 lead in the third game,
only to see Fort Meade dig
its' way back into it, scoring
four of the next five to close
to 5-4.
Taylor Miller then made a
diving dig that found open
floor for a score, sparking an
eight-point run to put the
Dragons .back in control.
The Miners, again, started
chipping away, but key
blocks by Baldwin and


Alysha Curtis stemmed the
tide before a Summerfield
kill and two Yudi Terrones
aces sealed the 25-14 win.
Weaver's 9 kills lead the
team, as did her five aces,
along with Barragan.
Baldwin totaled three
blocks, Miller seven digs and
Kylie Weber set up the
offense well with 9 assists
from the setter position.
"I'm real happy with the
leadership some of the girls
have shown," Jones said.
"They're playing very well


together as a team. But it's
hard to say with the new
teams we haven't seen and
not knowing what some other
teams have coming back.
We'll see how we do."
They are off to a good
start.
The team headed on a
short trip Thursday to face
Avon Park in another contest
with a new district foe.

Karley Freeland and the Lady Blue Streaks had little
trouble with Ridge Community Tuesday night, winning in
a sweep, in their final warm-up before facing district
power Haines City Thursday night.

Lady Streaks run


past Ridge


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
In traveling to face new
district opponent Ridge in
Davenport Tuesday, the
Sebring volleyball squad
found that things weren't
all that different.
"They were similar to
Hardee," senior rightside
hitter Abigail Bone said.
"They were a little better.
and had more hitters."
But a little better wasn't
going to get it done against
the Lady Streaks as they
cruised to a three-game


win, by 25-18, 25-13 and
25-15 scores.
"Just like with Hardee,
this was Ridge's first game,
and they -graduated seven
seniors from last year's
team," head coach Venessa
Sinness said. "We're a few
games up because of our
preseason tournament and
then getting the Monday
game with Hardee. Their
coach wanted to get a game
in before they got into dis-
trict play which helped us
out as well."

Alisha Hoffman, #10, paced the Panthers with 20 assists, and the team's lone scoring
block, Tuesday night But it wasn't enough as Indian River topped South Florida in four
games.

Rough waters at Indian River

for Lady Panthers


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
Perhaps it was a lull after
their heated evening at
Florida College a few nights
before.
Maybe it was the travel-
ing to the Atlantic Coast
after the drive to the Gulf
Coast that set the tone.
Whatever the case, the
encouraging signs the South
Florida Lady Panthers had
been showing in the presea-
son weren't seen in
Tuesday's four-game match
loss to Indian River.
"We had one block the
whole night, and that came
from our setter (Alisha
Hoffman)," head coach Kim
Crawford said. "We got our
hands on the ball and they'd
dig them out and return
them. But we need our mid-
dles to be much more active
and assertive at the net."


"We came out strong in
the first game but just came
up short," assistant coach
Charlotte Bauder said. "And
we played well in the third
game, made a nice come-
back to win that one. But in
the second game, our hitting
percentage was negative as
we had four kills and five
errors.
"There were a lot of com-
munication issues," Bauder
continued. "It's still a lot of
nerves and getting too anx-
ious. They (Indian River)
missed a lot of serves that
we should have capitalized
on."
With a young team, still
growing together just a few
games into the season, those
sotts of issues should be
somewhat expected, for the
time being.
"At Florida College, we
didn't get beat," Crawford


said. "We lost, but we didn't
get beat. This time, I feel
like we got beat. We should
be getting 25-30 kills and
our leader should be getting
12-15."
Jessica Singewald was
the Panthers kill leader on
the night with six.
"But this group of girls
are workers and they'll
work through it," Crawford
continued. "And that's what
we'll do, keep working to
get better."
Hoffman, in addition to
her block, accounted for 20
assists, while Rikki
Albritton lead the dig
parade with 17 and Sydney
Klemp added 16 digs.
The South Florida is back
at it Saturday afternoon,

"They have a really big

she does."
"We just played them that
