Ric Fleeger caulks new benches Tuesday morning in front of the Highlands County
Courthouse in Sebring. The concrete benches will also 'serve as a security measure.


To protect and serve

Former granite steps turned into benches
and barricades at county courthouse


By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun com
SEBRING - In 2004,
when the addition was
built onto the courthouse,
the sandstone steps that
led up the back were
removed so the annex
could be connected to the
original building.
The sandstone steps
were of such a quality and
had such historical con-
nections that county
Director of Facilities
David Flowers didn't want
to just throw them away.
For close to five years
they sat out in a field.
Flowers could see them
from his office window
and wondered almost daily
how they could be put to
use.
Then several factors
came together.
Since the Oklahoma
City bombing and the two
attacks on the World Trade
Center, security of public
places has been uppermost
:in the minds of those


responsible for public
safety.
At the same time, with
smoking prohibited inside
the courthouse, smokers
were gathering on the
front steps - even though
they weren't supposed to
be smoking there, either.
'These steps are
a piece of'
history. They
were put in
originally in
1928.'

DAVID FLOWERS
county director
of facilities
Add to that the fact that
there was no seating for
anyone on their way in or
out of court.
That's when the idea
struck - use the steps to
make benches and planters
and place them strategical-
ly to serve as a barricade
against p vehicle driving


into the building, taking
care of all the issues at
once.
Rick Fleeger was put in
charge of construction.
He's been at work with his
cement saw for about a
year.
Concrete bases are
topped by lengths of the
sandstone steps to form
benches and planters. The
planter edges are wide
enough to sit on. They
will be planted with ligus-
trum trees to provide
shade.
"We're hoping to move
the smokers away from the
door," Flowers said. "I
was proud of the design.
With the shade, they'll be
a nice place to rest.
"These steps are a piece
of history. They were put
in originally in 1928. If
you look closely, you'll
see they match the front
steps exactly."
And they will be perma-
nent - a seven-foot sec-
tion weighs 400 pounds.


County works on new building naming policy


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - County
Commissioners took a first
look at a new policy
designed to set guidelines
for the naming of county
buildings at their last meet-
ing.
According to Assistant
County Administrator Rick
Helms, the county occasion-
ally receives requests to
rename buildings after indi-
viduals who have con-
tributed to the Highlands
County community.
The requests, and the pol-
icy, comes in three distinct
categories: honorific, for
those whose service merits

Harris in November of last year.


recognition; philanthropic,
for groups or individuals
who donate a percent to the
construction of new build-
ings or renovations; and cor-


portions, who provide
goods, services or money.
An example of an hon-
orary naming happened
when the agricultural center


on George Boulevard was
rededication after Bert J.
Harris Jr. by the commis-
sioners in 2008.
Helms made it clear that
the policy was still in the
beginning stages, and that
he had followed the exam-
ples of several different
counties, such as Pinellas.
One of the items Helms
suggested was a five-year
waiting period after the
death of an individual for
honorific names, but
Commissioners Guy Maxcy
and Edgar Stokes objected.
Maxcy said that many
folks, including the families
and the honorees, are

4 seeking

3 seats on

Avon Park

council

Gray running
for re-election
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.comn
AVON PARK - A total of
four candidates have applied
to run for the three open seats
on the Avon Park City
Council.
Brenda Gray's seat will
open up, and the nine-year
veteran politician will run for
another three-year term in the
Nov. 3 election.
"I still feel there are things
in the city of Avon Park that I
can still assist in accomplish-
ing," she said.
The seats of George Hall
and Joe Wright will also open
up, but neither man decided to
run for an additional term.
Gray is joined by John
"Terry" Heston, Paul D.
Miller and Tonya Marshall as
a candidate for the three open
seats.
All have been in Avon Park
for more than a few years,
from Miller's 31 to Marshall's
eight.
Heston has lived in the city
for 25, raising, his family and
helping to. run Sedlock &
Heston Construction.
"I think it's
a great place
to live; I
might be able
to help out a L
little bit,"
Heston said.
"I think Joe Gray
Wright and
George Hall have done a good
job, and I.hope to keep that
tradition up."
Heston said he's not really
involved but goes to meetings
"every once in a while."
Opposite of that is longtime
resident Miller.
"I go to every meeting,"
said the retiree who. worked at
the Avon Park Bombing
Range.
He ran for the open seat
currently occupied by Aljoe
Hinson in the last election,
and decided to run again
because he wants to see an
overall better community for
the people, he said.
The people Miller refers to
can relate more to Marshall,
she said, because she is in the
same spot as many of them.
She found herself unem-
ployed when a physical thera-
pist shut down his office.
. "I don't feel like a lot of the
city council feels what it's
like. I do. I'm living it right
now," she said. "The residents
need someone in their shoes.
I'm walking in their shoes
right now. I feel their plight
and I can speak for them."
Marshall said she has
attended a lot of council meet-
ings since mid-2008. One of
the things she stressed is the
need for more citizen involve-
ment in the Avon Park gov-
ernment.
"I think we, the citizens,
should keep the city honest,"
she said. "That's the main
thing."

Sudzina

retires,

but hopes

to return
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Tenth Circuit
Court Administrator Nick
Sudzina, the manager 'of
Highlands County's court
system since 1985, retired on
Aug. 30 due to state regula-
tions concerning the DROP
program, but hopes not to be
out of work for very long.
State retirement policy
mandates that Sudzina retire,
but does give him the ability
to return, to the same job after
30 days.
The state's five-year
deferred retirement plan
kicked in September 2004,
when he turned 57, because
he had worked for the state
for 30 years.
Sudzina has submitted an
application to return as court
administrator, but has to go
through the hiring process
with other applicants and be
approved by 21 of the 40 dis-
trict judges.
"I hope to come back to
this job," Sudzina told the
Lakeland Ledger last week.
"I've submitted my applica-
tion to return. I really like my
job and the people I work
with, and I'm in good health.
I'm just not ready to leave
yet."
Sudzina has worked for the
state since 1971 and has
served as court administrator
for the 10th Judicial Circuit
since September of 1985.
His salary at retirement
was $110,717 per year..
If the judges in the 10th
Judicial Circuit decide to re-
hire Sudzina, he be "double-
dipping" from taxpayer cof-
fers with an annual salary of
$95,000, which is the begin-
ning salary for the position,
and the $62,964 annual
retirement pay.
The total of the two would
be $157,964 per year.
According to state records,
Sudzina will also receive a
$338,715 deferred retirement
ch6ck, representing the'
retirement money he accrued
during the past five years
under the state's DROP pro-
gram.
The posting for Sudzina's
job will remain open until
today, and then a committee
of seven administrative
judges will review submitted
applications on Sept. 15.
The judicial committee,
which is comprised of the
10th Circuit's seven adminis-
trative judges, will interview
the finalists and make recom-
mendations to the full judici-
ary.
Court Operations Manager
Stacey Hoskins will serve as
interim court administrator.

Enforcement increased for holiday

weekend on roads and on water


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - Traffic on both
local lakes and roads increases
over a three day weekend, and
local and state agencies were sure
to catch any intoxicated operators
or other violators.
Col. John Czernis, director of
'the Florida Highway Patrol,
announced on Thursday the pre-
liminary results of recently com-


pleted enforcement initiatives
where troopers placed special
emphasis not only on impaired
drivers, but also those who violat-
ed Florida's relatively young
Move Over law.
Locally, members of the
Highlands County Sheriff's Office
and the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission were

checks and making sure no boat


County agrees to

purchase caladium

land in Lake Placid


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Highlands
County Commissioners
agreed to spend $3.2 mil-
lion to purchase land
owned by caladium farmers
east of lake Placid during a
meeting of the Special
Districts last Tuesday.
But the deal will go
through only if the state
supplies the money, accord-
ing to County Attorney
Ross Macbeth.
The land purchased is
part of the effort to help
clean up and preserve local
lakes.
The county agreed to buy
over 312 acres along
Caladium Drive for
$10,200 per acre.
Six parcels within the
agreement belong to some
of the largest caladium
farmers in Lake Placid, and
the purchase supposed to
alleviate te runoff of phos-
phates and stormwater into
stirrounding lakes.
The runoff from the big
farms goes directly into the
canal systems that lead
back to Lake Okeechobee.
Almost $800,000 goes to
Terry and Kell Reynolds
and the Reynolds Farms,


another $800,000 goes to
Jessie Harrison Trust, and
the rest of the money is
divided amongst four other
landowners.
South Florida Water
Management District
(SFWMD) is funding the
$3.2 million needed for the
purchases as part of their
Istokpoga Marsh Watershed
Improvement District.
In a memo from Terrie
Bates, SFWMD's Assistant
Deputy Executive Director
of Water Resources on Aug.
13, the group passed a reso-
lution and requested the
funds from the
Environmental Protection
Agency's Save Our
Everglades Trust Fund.
The overall project pro-
poses to capture excess
stormwater that in turn will
be used for farm irrigation.
It is estimated that the
system will remove
approximately 70 percent
of the total phosphorus cur-
rently discharged from the
Harney Pond Canal and
subsequently to Lake
Okeechobee.
The overall water project
is estimated to cost approx-
imately $12.5 million.

"Number one, we make sure
they are operating in a safe manner
and have all the state require-
ments," said Lt. Keith Starling of

He said the HCSO emphasizes

ing the warmer months, to head
out on the water for patrol.

inmate faces

charges in

death of Polk

Co. deputy

Sergeant at jail was
injured in scuffle Aug. 30
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
FROSTPROOF - A man serving a
30-year sentence in a Polk County jail
for a Highlands County murder faces
new charges after he allegedly pushed
a detention deputy, causing injuries
that eventually led to the deputy's
death.
Terrence Barnett, who is in jail for
the 2007 murder of Bryan "Red"
Fanning in the DeSoto. City area,
reportedly became agitated on Aug. 30
at the South County Jail in Frostproof
and demanded to be moved to the
Central County Jail.
.According to a
release from the Polk
County Sheriff's
Office, the 28-year-
old Barnett threatened
to break the sprinkler
head in his room if Brown
deputies did not com-
ply with his demands.
He grew "increas-
ingly violent," and
eventually broke the
sprinkler head, caus-
ing water to continu-
ously spray into his
cell. Barnett
Several deputies,
including 20-year veteran Sgt. Ronnie
Oneal Brown, responded to his cell to
escort him out.
Brown and another sergeant entered
the cell to restrain Barnett, who was
last listed by the Highlands County
Jail as being 6-foot-9 and weighing
210 pounds.
During the scuffle Barnett reported-
ly shoved Brown backwards, knocking
him against the wall and causing him
to land on the floor on his back.
Brown had to be rescued from the
cell by his fellow deputies due to the
injuries he received. Barnett was
eventually , taken into custody after
deputies used a "chemical agent" on
him.
Brown was taken by ambulance
during the early morning hours of
Monday,. Aug. 31, to Lake Wales
Hospital to be treated for his injured
back, and released. The next after-
noon, Tuesday, Sept. 1, the injuries to
his back were so severe that he could-

Stepping
away from
one of the
camp-
ground
buildings,
he consid-
ered the
soundd he
Guest was hear-
ing.
Column At first
Dorothy Harris he thought
it was the
sound of a dog barking from
a long distance off.
Reconsidering, he believed it
sounded more like a frog
croaking, but if it was, this
was one really loud frog.
Following the sound
across the campground, he
headed over to the Campfire
Circle area. There it was
again.
Looking up into the tree
cover, he carefully stepped
into the woods and listened
closely.
What he saw became one
of the most exciting things
that happened out here last
week.
Park Ranger Blake Lewis
had just made a tentative,
identification of a cuckoo
bird! Yes, that's what I said
- a cuckoo. This bird, the
yellow-billed cuckoo, has
been noted on our park's his-
torical bird list as "incom-
mon" and possible to see
during the summer and fall
months. However, this is the
first time that Ranger Blake .
or I have ever seen this bird.
The deep "cloom" sound
Blake heard from several
hundred feet away was one
he believes he has heard
before recently, but never
had the time to investigate.
The much more animated
"ku-ku-ku-ku-kddowl-
kkdowl" vocalizations I had
heard a short time before he
came to see me reminded me
of what it sounds like within
an-aviary at a zoo.
I had no idea of what it
was I had heard and had
attributed it to an animal's
cry.
When Blake came by just
a short time later and excit-
edly told me what he had
heard,, we looked the bird up
and Googled the bird songs.
We came to a pretty sure
determination that Blake had
indeed heard and possibly
seen a yellow-billed cuckoo,
but being a good birder, he
wanted a second positive ID
from someone else.
We were both pretty excit-
ed because, after all, what
birder doesn't get happy
over adding another species
to their list? Blake left,
assuring me that he'd let me


get rare birding treat

Hammock State Park recently.


know if he heard or saw the
bird again. Not too much
later, he pulled up. to my
office and off to the camp-
ground we went.
Sure enough, the deep
"cloom" sound had us zero-
ing in on this mysterious vis-
itor. This was not the sounds
that I had heard so I was
especially interested to see
whether our research was
correct or not. Something
flew and off we went again.
Stopping the golf cart, Blake
listened carefully and was
able to pick up the sound
further into the campsites..
As we zeroed in on the
bird, its flight pattern was
another giveaway that our ID
was correct. We could see
the bright white underside of
the bird contrasting nicely
with the reddish-colored
upper wings.
Once it landed and we
located the tree, we whipped
out the binoculars and bingo,
our bird ID was complete.
With two pairs of eyes and
those of a few visitors drawn
by the commotion, we were
able to make a positive iden-
tification of our summer vis-
itor, the yellow-billed cuck-
oo.
Sitting up in the tree and
raising its bill to the sky, the
deep "dcloom" began again. It
was very interesting to
watch this bird's neck vibrat-
ing with its notes. We agreed
it sounded like a very loud
and deep mourning dove
coo. Just one time it sang its,
peculiar song, much to our
delight.


"That," I expressed to
Blake, "was what I had
heard."
The yellow-billed cuckoo
feeds on hairy caterpillars,
but we didn't get to watch
its habit of rubbing the
caterpillars through its bill to
remove the fuzz. We simply
enjoyed watching it fly,
perch and call for a while
before it headed to the next
tree.
I would suggest that if
you want to try and see it for
yourself that you come out
for a hike and listen for a
deep "cloom" resonating in
the air. As a solitary and
secretive species, you may
heai it but have a hard time
actually getting a good view.
Look for the bright yellow
bill and the large white spots


on its tail that are noted
field marks.
You might be surprised to
know that this bird hatches
and fully develops within a
mere 17 days! Even more
surprising is that its feathers
literally burst out, allowing
the bird to become fully
feathered in about two
hours. More incredible facts
about this unique bird can
be found at www.allabout-
birds.org/guide/Yellow-
billed_Cuckoo/lifehistory.
For a bird list of species
you might see at the
Hammock, visit www.
FloridaStateParks.org/high-
landshammock to download
the park's bird list or request
one next time you visit the
park. Loaner binoculars are
also available at the Ranger
. Station in case you don't
have your own pair. Happy
birding!

"We go around boat to boat
and check people throughout
the day," he said. "You're
looking at 30 or more easy a

Helms and County
Administrator Michael
Wright argued that the coun-
ty could face some embar-
rassment if the honoree was
later convicted of a crime,

in Hillsborough County.

weekend and arrested 136
impaired drivers.
While the total number of
fatalities in Florida during
the recent holiday weekend is
yet to be determined, FHP
investigated seven crash
fatalities.
By comparison, during the
2008 Labor Day weekend 36
people died in crashes on
Florida's roadways. The FHP
investigated crashes involv-
ing 20 of those fatalities.


Stewart voted no, and stated
that she did not believe that
county buildings should be
named after individuals.
Stewart stated that every
individual who contributed to
the success of the county was
equally important, and that
naming buildings left some
volunteers and service-mind-
ed people out.
Helms promised to contin-
ue to refine the policy, and to
return to the commissioners
with another draft at a later
meeting.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL

Having something to

do important for teens


The nine years
between the
ages of 12 and
21 are perhaps the
most difficult ones a
modem person has
to live through.
The nine years between the
ages of 12 and 21 are perhaps
the most difficult ones a mod-
ern person has to live through.
There is nothing as awkward
as being between places - in
this case between being a child
and an adult.
Take inexperience, ambition
and energy, add that to a devel-
oping body, actual restrictions,
perceived expectations and
peer pressure, mix in the essen-
tial phase of rebellion, top it off
with the age-appropriate (but
pain-in-the-neck) absolute
'belief in one's own opinion,
and we end up with a confused,
and therefore occasionally bel-
ligerent, individual who one
day demands independence
and the next begs for guidance.
We remember enough of our
own youth that we have a great
deal of sympathy for adoles-
cents who are working at
becoming their own people.
It is not an easy task.
And in 'ways it has been
made more difficult by modem
conveniences. Now, with auto-
mobiles, as a fellow writer
pointed out, teens can travel to
another city and be as bored
there as they are at home.
The drive to the' mall, in
other words, is not energized
by the mall in and of itself, but
by the ability to get into a car
and get going.
In fact there is plenty for
everyone to do in Highlands
County.
There are sports programs
for all ages, as well as hiking,
fishing, hunting, cycling, scuba
diving and bird watching.
There are the Highlands
Little Theatre, the Highlands
Art League and school bands.
There is the Battle Zone in
Avon Park and the Game
Room in Sebring; the skate
park and plenty of beaches.
There are church groups by


the score, Habitat for
Humanity, food pantries, the
coming-on-line food reservoir,
scouting, the FFA, the YMCA,
the American Red Cross, the
Republican party, the
Democratic party, the
American party and the
NAACP.
Movies can be rented and
popcorn bought fresh.
Libraries are open into the
evening, and there are two
movie theaters with a choice of
selections open seven days a
week.
And, of course, there are pri-
vate homes.
It is not really about oppor-
tunities, in other words. The
truth is teens in New York City
or Los Angeles are just as
bored as the teens here.
One of an adolescent's most
important tasks is maturing. In
those nine years between 12
and 21, they have to learn how
to meet deadlines, how to moti-
vate themselves, and how to
get along with others. They are
developing their codes of con-
duct, exploring their options,
figuring out what it is they
believe and how they want to
live their lives.
So it makes sense that
spending time with each other
is an important drive, even a
necessity. Talking about their
world is essential to under-
standing it.
While informal groups of
friends provide a great deal of
that, it also is true that planned
events are useful.
We have a suggestion to pro-
vide a regular venue, a safe
way for young people to min-
gle.
What if parents contacted
the Parent Teacher
Organizations at the high
schools, developed a cadre of
chaperones, went to the leaders
of the three cities and the man-
agement of Lakeshore Mall
and organized a weekly
Saturday night dance with vol-
unteer parents providing super-
vision.
It is a matter of balance.
Teens need to learn how to
amuse themselves, that's a part
of growing up, but we adults
can help by providing a little
structure.

Be informed before
forming opinion
Editor:
I think it is a crying shame that
there are people who value money
so much that they are willing to lie,
cheat and/or steal to ensure they
continue to make more than they
could possibly spend in one life-
time. Considering we are talking
about the health and welfare of the
American people these acts of ruth-
less deception are downright despi-
cable.
Contrary to all the lies being
told, a public health care option is
not a free gift as many seem to
.believe ... it is an affordable
option. For those who have the
means but don't want to pay for
outrageously over-priced policies a
public option will actually entice
millions to contribute who other-
wise would not. For those lacking
the means to pay ... well, we are
already paying for these folks and
doing so at a much higher cost than
is necessary.
I am intrigued by the logic (or
lack there of) invoked by those
opposing health care reform. You
may hate lazy people who feed off
the system, and understandably so,
but they are a small minority and
as I mentioned earlier we already
pay for them. So, why not fix the
system for the millions that
deserve affordable healthcare and
send a strong message to those par-
asitic corporations feeding on the
American public?
Before following blindly what
you hear or read please take the
time to research the information
and become an informed citizen
capable of differentiating fact from
fiction. Web sites like
factcheck.org and politifact.com
separate fact from fiction and will
allow you to draw informed opin-
ions regarding the direction of
health care in America.

Create a place for teens
Editor:
My name is Charles Lewis and I
live in Avon Park. I'm almost 20
years old and I would like to make
a proposition.
I've read two articles in the
News-Sun over the past week
regarding teen activity and
Lakeshore Mall. I agree with the
young people that there really isn't
that much to do around Highlands
County for them. I'm not asking to
revoke banning them from the
mall, but create a place that would
cater to their leisure time. It can
include a video arcade, several
music lounges that serve teen-
friendly drinks, and an Internet
cafe, all charged by the hour.
Where this would be is up to the
people in charged but some sugges-
tions include where Publix used to
be in Avon Park. behind the mall,
or any other empty facility that is


in the Avon Park and Sebring area.
I implore that this be considered.
The older adults and younger chil-
dren have plenty of places for
down time, why not the people in
between? The Lakeshore Mall and
the businesses associated with it
should put funds up for the imple-
mentation of this plan.Sponsors for
this could be solicited from the
community.
Opening up something for the
teenagers makes a lot of sense.
Teens with nothing to do will find
something to do. Better it be in a
controlled and safe environment
with plenty of activities.

Social justice may not
forget about arrest
Editor:
A Sebring police officer arrested
me for resisting an officer without


violence on July 22. This officer
arrested me approximately five
hours after he said that I pedaled
away from him, while he was
approaching me at the Sebring park
near the library to warn me about
riding bicycles out there.
I never saw this officer
approaching me, nor could I as I
had my earbuds with radio playing
music loudly and also had not the
ability to see him through the
numerous obstacles that hindered
my ability to. I tried to explain to
him that I didn't see or hear him
approaching or I would have
stopped to see what he wanted as I
have no reason to oppose law
enforcement. But if he was chasing
me for approximately five hours
and he had an eight- cylinder
police cruiser and I was on my
kids' 20-inch bicycle, why did it
-take this long to find me?
This officer stated at the location


of arrest on U.S. 27 South,
Sebring, that he, was approaching me
to give me a warning about bicy-
cles at the park location and that
they are. not allowed there, and I
apologized to him and he asked me
to get off my bicycle as I was
under arrest.
This made me furious, but I con-
tained myself as I could have easi-
ly made this situation much worse.
But, the true reasoning and cause
behind this arrest came to me as he
was transporting me to the
Highlands County Jail, when the
officer asked me, "So, I hear you
are a freelance writer?" Right then
I knew, why he wanted me.
I responded and said, "What
does it matter, you don't believe
me anyway."' And, that was all the
conversation we had.
This let me know that this par-
ticular officer knew of my writings
to my local newspapers and period-
ically speak loudly regarding free-
dom and liberty over tyrrany as an
NGI (non-government individual)
whom also speaks out freely about
bigger government and the
hypocricies within.
I feel that this officer made a
bad judgment and willfully and
intentionally used his badge of
authority to harm me by harrass-
ment. I am indigent and am repre-
senting myself in this Highlands
County court system, pro se, to try
and prove my innocence and that I
was the victum of police harrass-
ment and harm.
I spent 15 days in incarceration
for something that I didn't do. Let
this be an example as to how law
enforcement sometimes make mis-
takes and errors. My first amend-
ment rights to free speech and the
expression thereof has been violat-
ed and am contemplating seeking
accountability.
Sometimes social justice never
forgets. Pre-trial conference is on
at 9 a.m. Sept. 20.

Yesteryear's Movies
set for month
AVON PARK -
Yesteryear's Movies will be
shown at the Avon Park
Library, 100 N. Museum
Ave., at 2 p.m. Saturday.
+ Saturday - "What's Up
Doc?," directed by Peter
Bogdanovich in 1972, 94
minutes. This film, a virtual
remake of Howard Hawks'
"Bringing Up Baby," which
was screened here in July,
loses none of the mania joy
of the original. Unusual for
a remake, it may be better in
'many ways. The casting is a
marvel. Rather than a leop-
ard, the focus in this remake
is upon four identical travel
cases that are sought by
divergent interests. The
results are laugh upon laugh.
Rated G.
* Sept. 19 - "Blow Out,"
directed by Brian De Palma
in 1981, 107 minutes. This
terrific thriller stars John
Travolta, Nancy Allen and
John Lithgow at their acting
best. The film is full of
interesting sound forensics
and harrowing'chases. Rated
R for sex, nudity, profanity
and violence - pretty much
the big four of naughtiness.
* Sept. 26 - "Singin' in
the Rain," directed by
Stanley Donen in 1952, 102
minutes. Beside its contain-
ing one of the few iconic
movie scenes in the history
of film: Gene Kelly dancing
and singing in a rainy street,
this film contains a wealth of
good and very funny acting.
The plot centers on the panic
that ran through Hollywood
as "talkies" replaced the
silent movies. Jean Hagen
hysterically epitomizes the
problem. Before ratings, but
it's clean as a whistle.

Movies showing at
the LP library
LAKE PLACID - The
September presentation of

love and support
through this
heartbreaking time.
Words are not enough
to express our thanks.

Thank You,

Polk detention deputy dies


Continued from page 2A
n't move.
He was transported to
Winter Haven Hospital and
underwent back surgery on
Sept. 2.. He remained in
Winter Haven Hospital after
surgery and died in his hospi-
tal bed nearly a week later,
on Tuesday.
Barnett has been charged
with aggravated battery on a
law enforcement officer, two
counts of battery on an offi-
cer, criminal mischief,
depriving an officer of means
of protection and three
counts oresisting ani officer
with violence.
He has been moved to the
Hillsborough County Jail,
and a homicide investigation
is under way.
Barnett has been in and out
of jail for nearly a decade,
the first charges against him


in late 2000 for armed rob-
bery, aggravated battery and
aggravated assault.
He had started doing time
for the Fanning murder, hav-
ing plead to second-degree
murder, and as part of the
plea agreement he was to tes-
tify against co-defendants in
the case.
That deal was struck with
the state on June 12, but he
has a court date of Oct. 1 to
possibly withdrawal his plea.
"He has had buyer's
remorse and is seeking to
withdrawal," said Steve
Houchin of the State
Attorney's Office. "He said
that his lawyer gave him
some bad advice."
.Brown, 48, was a Polk
County native who served
time overseas in the Marine
Corps.
In 2007 he and two deten-


after scuffle
tion deputies were awarded a
meritorious service medal
from the PCSO for saving an
inmates life by performing
CPR.
During his 20 year career
in law enforcement, all with
the PCSO, Brown was known
for- his professionalism,
attention to detail, positive
influence on those around
him, and his excellent work
ethic, a press release said.
"Brown was a dedicated
man who was respected by
his supervisors and admired
by his peers," said Polk
County Sheriff Grady Judd.
"Sgt. Ronnie Brown is a
hero."
He leaves behind a wife,
who is also employed by the
PCSO as a detention deputy
assigned to the inmate book-
ing area in Bartow, and a
teenaged daughter.

Dear Lakeshore Mall Guest.

Providing a family-friendly, convenient and enjoyable
shopping experience for you and your family has
always been our top priority. In fact, it's so important
to us, we've recently developed a new Youth Escort
Policy (YEP) to help make sure your visit to Lakeshore
Mall is as family-friendly and enjoyable as possible.
It will go into effect Friday, September 11, 2009.

Based directly upon discussions and feedback from
community organizations in the greater Sebring area,
our own retailers, and shoppers like yourself, the new
policy requests that shoppers under the age of 18 be
accompanied by a parent or guardian who is 21 years
or older at all times on Fridays and Saturdays after
6 p.m. Unescorted youth will be asked to leave the.
mall after 6 p.m. on those nights.

We've created this policy to help maximize
your shopping experience at Lakeshore Malltt
by promoting a family-friendly environment.
We hope you'll agree that our new policy
helps to do just that - and we're looking forward to
your continued support.

Sincerely,




Jenny Cheek
General Manager, Lakeshore Mattll

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 set- ice, not the chef's
cooking (or lack of) abilities.
* Occasionally, restaurants will 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.

Aven Park



Okeehobee

Avon Park 0-1; Okeechobee 0-1
History
One of the area's oldies-but-goodies,
the Red Devil and Brahman history
began in 1928. Avon Park has a 27-
14 lead over the years, but fell in last
year's contest, 44-6, as Lonnie Prior
rushed for 165 yards and returned the
opening kickoff for an 82-yard TD.
LastWeek
Avon Park: Fell, 41-8, in a lightning-
delayed game at Frostproof.
Okeechobee:Took a road loss atVero
Beach, 36-0.
Game Notes
* Two key players are questionable
for tonight's game. Defensive tackle
Cody Schoeneck and linebacker Guy
Bowers both have the flu.
SDwayne Council was a, one-man
wrecking crew last week, recording 22
tackles, two sacks and assisting on the
Red Devil's safety at Frostproof.
Coach Speak
Avon Park's Andy Bonjokian: "They
are tough.They don't have a lot on
the roster either (in terms of
numbers), but I'm interested to see
what we can do if we don't lay the
ball on the ground and cut down on
our stupid mistakes. We've been
working all week on being more
regimented and concentrating on our
mental game. We've had a real good
week of practice."


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING - The first set
of Tuesday's match was a
thrilling win for the Lady
Crusaders . of Heartland
Christian, though the
Clewiston Tigers came roar-
ing back to take the next
three.
In her second season at the
helm, head coach Shannon
Cleveland sees the challenge
that faces her team.
"We're very young," she
said. "We had two seniors
last year that graduated, now
we have no seniors, two jun-
iors and the rest are
younger."
That includes to sopho-
mores, two freshmen, a sev-
enth-grader and four sixth-
graders.
Adding to the challenge,
one of last year's starters and
better all-around players,
Carolyn Cwalinski, went
down in the season's first
match with a torn MCL.
"That's a big miss there,"
Cleveland said. "She could
set, she could pass, she was
all over the place."
Even with the lack of expe-
rience and a key player miss-
ing, the Lady Crusaders were
1-1 on the young season
coming into Tuesday night's
contest.
Clewiston clawed out to a
big early lead, getting it to 8-
2 and then 17-8 before'the lit-
tle ladies from Heartland
drew together and got things
clicking.
A scoring spike from
freshman Morgan Yoxall
started a run, highlighted by
three service aces in a row
from sophomore Kayla
Selander, that got the
Crusaders to within 18-17 on
a Yoxall block.
The Tigers extended the


Lake Placid

at

Celebration
Records
Lake Placid 0-1; Celebration 0-1

This will be just the fifth meeting
between Lake Placid and Celebration.
The Green Dragons hold a 4-0 edge
thus far in the young series, including
last year's 29-10 Homecoming win
over the Storm.

Last Week
Lake Pladd: Showed progress, but
fell to Sebring, 36-6.
Celebration: Took a 44-0 thumping
at home to Satellite.
Game Notes
a Quarterback KirkVeley got into
triple figures last week, throwing for
100 yards against Sebring.
* The Green Dragons come into
tonight's game with a dean bill of
health with no major injuries to
report.
Coach Speak
Lake Pladd's Jason Holden:-
"Celebration is still relatively new, but
they are growing and getting better
every year.They're a solid team, the
play hard football and if we expect to
win we're going to have to do the
same.This,was a great week of
practice. Kids have high intensity and
did a lot of things really good this
week. We're trying to fight the bug
that's going around and trying to stay
healthy."


Sebring

VS.

Hardee
Records
Sebring 1-0; Hardee 0-0
History
Another in one of the area's age-old
rivalries, with Sebring and Hardee
going way back to 1926. Hardee
leads the series 34-9-1 with Sebring
not having won since '99. Last year's
contest was one for the ages, a 57-
51, overtime Wildcat win.
Last Week
Sebring:The offense kept rolling with
a 36-6 win at Lake Placid.
Hardee: Fell behind, 13-0, to Fort
Meade before lightning canceled the
game, which won't be rescheduled.
Game Notes
* Of Matt Grubb's 231 yards passing
last week against Lake Placid, 216
came in the first half.
* Running back Daniel Burnett sat
out the second half of last week's
contest with a sore groin, but should
be ready to lead the ground game for
the Blue Streaks.
Coach Speak
Sebring's Jared Hamlin: "They're a
very good football team, athletic and
fast.They're well coached and their
quarterback (EsayiYouYoute) is back
again, so it'll be a tough match-up.
It's always a good and exciting game
when we go up against Hardee. It's
going to be a tough game and they'll
be coming after us. We'll see what
we're made of."

Morgan Yoxall connects for a scoring kill Tuesday night
against Clewiston.


lead a tad, but a Kayla
Kaszubowski kill helped
Heartland draw even before
Ellie Arnold served up con-
secutive aces and Yoxall
tipped one over for the final
point of the 27-25 win.
The final three sets, how-
ever, while they started out
similarly, didn't end quite as
well.
Early leads from Clewiston
were cut into, but those extra
surges to stay in it couldn't
quite be dug out in 25-15, 25-
15 and 25-10 losses
"We just have to work,"
Cleveland said. "We're a lit-
tle behind, but we're catching


up. They've got big hearts
and we're looking for lead-
ers. They show their enthusi-
asm and they scrap their way
through, they just need to
learn to finish it up."
Which is one of the bene-
fits of such a young team, the
enthusiasm and effort is evi-
dent - and there is plenty of
time to learn.
The Lady Crusaders were
back in action Thursday
night at Victory in Lakeland
in a District 7-1A match
before heading to Moore
Haven Monday.
The team returns home
Tuesday against City of Life.

Avon Park chippers down


Wildcats by one


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK - One
stroke is not a lot in high
school golf, but it was
enough to give Avon Park
the win over Hardee on
Tuesday at River Greens
Golf Course.
According to Avon park
Head coach Bobby Barben,
the 178-177 win was not the
Red Devil's best game.
"We had kind of a sloppy
match," he said. "That score
is probably the worst we
have hit in a long time."


Avon Park's number one
chipper, Greg Gentry, held
the lowest score for the
team at 42 and was followed
closely by second man Clay
Davis at 43.
Both Avon Park followed
Hardee's Daniel Miller with
39 strokes.
"We have lost a couple of
guys since last year, and if
our top two do not hit well,
then it puts us off our
game," Barben said.
"But fortunately our sixth
man, Austin Tracey, saved
the day for us hitting a 47,"


Barben said.
Teammate Chad Marley
rounded out the score with a
45, according to Barben, but
the team, overall, could
have played a bit better.
"It was just one point, but
it was still a win. We usual-
ly hit a lot better than that,",
Barben commented.
Avon Park was back at it
Thursday in a tri-meet with
Lakeland and Sebring at the
Sun 'N Lake courses before
the team welcomes
Auburndale Tuesday for a
round at Pinecrest.


Lady Devils out-dig Miners


By ED BALDRIDGE
edbaldridge@newssun.com
The Avon Park Lady
Devils continued to show
improvement when they
defeated Mulberry 25-11,
25-16, 25-14 on the road
Tuesday night.
And, according to Avon
Park's head coach Stephanie
Devlin, she likes what she is
seeing.
"We are taking charge a
little bit," said Devlin. "We
have really improved since
the Preseason Classic, and
those are the comments I am
getting from almost every-
one. Even the bus driver
commented on our improve-
ment."
One of the definite stand-
outs for the year so far is
sophomore outside hitter
Heather Bass.
"If I had a defensive
award to give out, it would


go to Heather. She hustled
her butt off. She was every-
where. I was impressed with
her performance. It was
awesome to watch. She is
consistent in her hits, and
she has worked hard on her
transitioning," Devlin com-
mented.
Although other areas are
improving, Devlin said that
the Lady Devil service is
still going strong.
"Mulberry struggled with
serve returns, and that made
the match drag out a lot,"
Devlin said.
The double barreled
freshman serving attack of
Teresa Devlin and Ashley
Chacon did their part to
defeat Mulberry, according
to their coach.
Teresa Devlin served up
seven aces in a row, and
Chacon's service to the back
corner left the Lady Miners


scrambling all night.
"Teresa led the team in
aces, and Ashley came in
and did some outstanding
serving," Devlin said.
Although they have
improved a lot, Devlin still
feels that there is some work
to do before facing district
rival Lake Placid again.,
"Our serve receives were
a little better, we have spent
a lot of time on' serve
returns, and our hard work
is paying off," she said. "We
are communicating better,
and really moving, but it
will take some more court
experience to catch up with
Lake Placid. Lake Placid is
the team to look out for."
The Lady Devils wel-
comed new district foe
McKeel Academy for a
home match Thursday and
will see Fort Meade at home
on Tuesday.

Jeter above the fray


It does actually pain me to
write something in praise of
a New York Yankee, so
you'd think mentioning two
would be that much worse.
And yet, when discussing
the likes of Derek Jeter and
Lou Gehrig, any anti-Yankee
sentiment kind of gets
washed away.
Gehrig, as any baseball
historian will tell you, put
the pride in Yankee Pride,
was a man of class, dignity
and as respected a ballplayer
and man as there was in his,
or any, era.
'The funny thing is, a lot
of that can also be said about
Jeter.
Sure, some may not like
him out of jealousy or envy.
I mean, jeez, the guy is
the preeminent star on the
sports biggest stage, has
made enough money to keep
the Jeter family solvent for
the next millennia and has
the golden boy looks to put
him in high demand on the
dating scene - as if the
money itself wasn't enough
to secure that.
But you don't see his
name bantered about in the
tabloids, never has there
been a hint of scandal or
steroid usage. .
The one notable thing I
can recall is him being
somewhat unflattering of
Alex Rodriguez a couple
times.
That, actually, only adds
to his credibility.
. The golden boy facade is
one thing, but it doesn't
lessen his determination and
determination that have
made him the player he is,
not to mention the even keel
and team pride that has kept
him with one team his whole
career and is that team's
unquestioned leader.
Sure, sticking with the
Yankees your whole career
isn't exactly a chore, though
that is one of those things I
greatly respect in this day
and age of free agency and
players chasing the. next big
contract.
And in a city that chews
up and spits out so many
who try to make it big there,
it's saying something of his
worth that he's a Yankee for
life.
So when Jeter tied Gehrig
as the all-time hits leader for
the Bronx Bombers the other
night, it seemed kind of fit-
ting.
Two top-class guys at the
top of'the list for the most
storied franchise in the
game.
Aside from the praise,
however, a funny thing about
the achievement struck me.
Jeter's hit tied Gehrig as


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne
the all-time Yankee hit
leader, at 2,721, and part of
me thought, is that all?
In the long and illustrious
history of this greatest of
baseball franchises, not one
of their Hall of Fame play-
ers, none of their stated
Legends had ever reached
the magical 3,000 hit mark?
Granted, Gehrig, due to
his illness, saw his career
end at age 35, and had him
succumbing to the disease
that would then bear his
name two years later.
And Babe Ruth spent the
early part of his career as a
pitcher, not to mention that
his 'taking a big bit out of
life' ways contributed to him
fading down .the stretch of
his career.
Mickey Mantle's injury-
riddled career only gives
only a tempered measure of
what his numbers could have
been.
So you can look at their
greats and find the reasons
why, but it just seemed odd,
in the broad scope, that the
top of the list in Yankee hits
wasn't at 3,000-plus.
In fact, when I saw the
number I had a hunch that
proved correct.
In equaling the great Lou
Gehrig on the hit list, Derek
Jeter now has six more
career hits than Bill
Buckner.
And that's not a shot at
Jeter, as much as needling a
Yankee player would be
enjoyable.
As I state at the beginning
of this, I put the likes of
Jeter and Gehrig above the
fray.
Anyone that knows my
thoughts on Buckner knows
that bringing up that com-
parison is to elevate him.
Comparing one of my
favorites to a Yankee to
make him look better?
It would normally make
me cringe to consider it. But
considering it's Jeter and
Gehrig, I have no problem
with it.

Blue Streaks bedeviled at Winter Haven


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
It was a blue Tuesday
night for the Sebring volley-
ball squad as they fell in a
four-set match against the
Winter Haven Lady Blue
Devils.
"We just didn't play well
as a team," head coach
Venessa Sinness said. "We
were six individuals on the
court."
The dour mood was set
early.
"It was just a mess,"
Sinness said. "They only
had , nine volleyballs
between the two teams for
warm-ups, there was no
water for us, the nets were
4-inches too low and the
officials were late."
And so the 7:30 p.m.
scheduled start time was
pushed back until well after
8 p.m., with the Lady
Streaks dropping the first
set, 25-19.
They bounced back with a
25-16 win in the second go-
round, but fell-in the third,
25-18, and couldn't quite
force a fifth game, losing a
26-24 clincher for Winter
Haven.
Karley Freeland lead the
team in kills with 8, while
Anna West added five kills
and five blocks.
Britt Augustine set up the
offense with 15 assists.
"I think our adrenaline
was really up for the Haines
City match," Sinness said of
last Thursday's loss to the


Hornets. "And it just seemed
we were down for this one.
We didn't serve well, didn't
serve receive well. I told
them after the game that
right now, we have no great


players, individually or-as a
team, because we aren't
playing consistently as a
team."
The team looked to get
some consistency going


Thursday as they hosted new
district opponent Liberty
before heading to Lake
Placid Monday to square off
with the county rival Lady
Dragons.

District to hold-


hog hunts


Special to the News-Sun
Southwest Florida Water
Management District land
managers plan to hold a
series of hog hunts on
District- land this fall and
winter to help reduce the
wild hog population.
Beginning at 9 a.m.,
Monday, Oct. 12, prospective
hunters can purchase permits
for these hunts on the
District's website;
WaterMatters.org/hoghunts.
Permits will be available
on a first-come, first-served
basis through 5 p.m. on Oct.
26, or until they are sold out.
The cost is $50 for each per-
mit.
Wild hogs, which are not
native to Florida, feed by
rooting with their broad
snouts and can leave an area
looking like a plowed field.
The District allows hogs to
be controlled through hunts
when the damage they cause
is at unacceptable levels.
Damage from hogs is
occurring more frequently
and with increasing severity.
Here's where and when
hunts will be held:
- Starkey Wilderness
Preserve in Pasco County,
Dec. 1-3 and Feb. 9-11.


- Green Swamp
Wilderness Preserve,
Hampton Tract in Polk
County, Dec. 8-10, Feb. 2-4
and March 2-4.
- Conner Preserve in Pasco
County Feb. 16-18.
- Halpata Tastanaki
Preserve in Marion County,
Feb. 23-25.
- Upper Hillsborough,
Alston Tract, in Pasco and
Polk counties, Nov. 17-19
and Jan. 19-21.
- Lower Hillsborough,
Wilderness Preserve in
Hillsborough County, Jan.
26-28, March 23-25.
The District-managed
properties will be temporari-
ly closed to the public during
the hog hunts.
Only permitted hunters
will be allowed access.
In addition to obtaining a
permit online, maps and
hunting rules of the areas
where the hunts will take
place are available on the
District's web site.
This is the second consec-
utive year for the hunts.
Last year's hunts removed
hundreds of hogs from seven
different tracts of land
throughout the District.

'Fireproof showing at First
Presbyterian Church
AVON PARK - On Sunday, Sept.
20 Avon Park First Presbyterian Church
A.R.P. will show the movie of the
month, "Fireproof," in the fellowship
hall at 4 p.m. This captivating film is
directed by Alex Kendrick. 'Fireproof' '
is the third feature film from Sherwood
Pictures and the Kendrick Brothers -
the creators of 'Facing The Giants' and
'Flywheel.'
The film features performances from
Kirk Cameron and Erin Bethea. Kirk
Cameron plays Captain Caleb Holt who
lives by the firefighter's adage, "Never
leave your partner behind." Inside
burning buildings, it is his natural
instinct. In the cooling embers of his
marriage, it is another story.
After being married seven years,
Caleb and Catherine (played by Erin
Bethea) Holt have drifted so far apart
that they are ready to move on in their
lives without each other. As they pre-
pare to enter divorce proceedings,
Caleb's father asks his son to try an
experiment, called The Love Dare.
Caleb hopes The Love Dare has
nothing to do with his parents' new-
found faith; he commits to the chal-
lenge. Can Caleb attempt to love his
wife while avoiding God's love for
him? Will he be able to demonstrate
love over and over again to a wife that
is no longer receptive to his love? Or is
this just another marriage destined to
go up in smoke?
Free popcorn, sodas and the unend-
ing candy bowl will also be ready for
movie time. Pastor Bob and Maxine
Johnson, along with Connie Crews and
other volunteers arrange these power-
ful, funny, and heartwarming movies.


The movie will be shown on the big
screen in the fellowship hall. All people
in the community are invited to attend.
