AVON PARK -
Members of the airport
advisory board set
improvement priorities
for the next several years
at their regular meeting
Thursday afternoon.
The most important
task before them,' they
agreed, was to rewrite the
airport's master plan.
This is because the
board's overall vision is
to promote the airport as a
support center and fuel
stop for traffic passing
through the area, as well
as a destination.
Already traffic has
increased, said Richard
McKenzie, the on-site
operations manager. In
August, 22 jets landed -
a new record.
The ultimate goal is to
turn the airport into a
profit-making entity.
.The board wants to
build up the south side
and reorganize the layout
of hangers, grouping
small recreational air-
planes in one area and
larger corporate planes in
another.

Sebring church a remarkable success story


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - Eugene Haas was
ordained in 1950, when he was 22
years old.
For over 50 years he has spread the
word of the Gospel, both as a travel-
ing evangelist and pastor to a flock.
In his career he has traveled from
coast to coast, visited 40 countries -
Israel alone 17 times - and founded
three churches'.
The most recent, Christ Fellowship
Church, he didn't even set out to
build.
There are times, the 81-year-old
Haas says, one can only move to
God's will.


His current adventure began inaus-
piciously when in 1991 he read an
article in an Assemblies of God
newsletter titled "The Senior
Advantage." He was 63 at the time.
What he read shocked him. The
article said that by 2000 over 37 mil-
lion people would have passed their
65th birthday, but that only 16 percent
of them were saved.
It also spoke to the issues of loneli-
ness, isolation and the difficulty of
living on a fixed income.
Haas learned that the senior popula-
tion is growing faster than any other
segment of the population, that there

said Mark Medick, board president
of NAMI Highlands County.


The service provided by the non-

operating costs through donations
and having fundraisers.
"This is something good because
it's for people that want help but
can't get it because they have no
insurance or something," Medick
said. "They are not being forgotten.

just how talented the contestants are.

Tea Party

leaders to

speak at

Voters

League
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - It's not a tea
and it's not a party. But it is a
lot of people who want to be
heard.
The Boston Tea Party in
1773 was heralded by the slo-
gan "No Taxation Without
Representation." It greatly
contributed to the colonists'
revolt which led to the
Revolutionary War.
On March 16, over 300
Highlands County residents
gathered at the Florida
Fireman's� Association on
U.S. 27 just south of Avon,
Park to voice the same senti-
mnents. Thus ,began the,
Highlands Tea Party.;
Like other groups of its
kind, they are non-partisan,
boasting members of both the
-Deinocrat and Republican
parties as well as independ-
ents and minor parties . who
are united in their quest to
lower taxes and raise public
awareness on the state of, the
current government. .,
Group coordinators Titi
Dowell from the Lakeland Tea
Party, as well as Lester Lob
and Mary Begneston from the
Highlands Tea Party have
been invited to speak to the
Highlands County Voters
League this Thursday.
The Tea Party events have
been enthusiastic events
where many gather to share
information about different
causes and issues. In addition
to the speeches and music
coming from a central stage,
the organizations have booths
where they distribute infor-
mational flyers, books and
pamphlets as well as posters,
books and banners.
The Voters League meets
the third Thursday of each
month at the Homers
Restaurant at the Sebring
Square shopping: plaza.
Dinner is at 5 p.m. with the
meeting beginning at 6 p.m.

SEBRING - Nearly 200 were in atten-
dance for Friday's Blue Mass at St.
Catherine's Catholic Church in Sebring.

'w wonders. * '
Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton
said it was "appropriate" that the mass was
held on Sept. 11, the eighth anniversary of
the terrorist attacks on the World Trade
Center and Pentagon.
Father Jose Gonzalez recalled that
"police, fire and emergency workers repeat-
edly charged into flaming towers," telling
those in the church to remember their will-
ingness help others while risking their own
lives.
"It's not just Sept. 11," he added. "It's
floods, fires, hurricanes ... and let's not for-
get our men and women who serve over-
seas."
Benton and other uniformed first respon-
ders participated in the mass by reading
passages and singing hymns. The mass was
closed by the singing of "America the
Beautiful."
When the mass was over, emergency
workers were greeted by dozens of St.
Catherine's Catholic School students out-
side.
"Most of them 'were riot e�vri born on

The children excitedly handed out thank
you cards to the smiling officers, firefight-
ers and paramedics while they were on their
way to a'lunch catered by Chicane's in an
adjacent building.
,The turnout was better than expected.
Gonzalez said, and he hopes to make the

judges," he said, "have the toughest

here (who deserve to advance). Top to

,tonight."
-Sydni Hornick, 10, drew applause
.while she was singing "Hopelessly
Devoted".
"That's what we're here for, fabu-

the News-Sun.
Candace Nacino, 10, singing
"Reflections" also moved the crowd
to applaud while she sang.
"Candace," Henry said, "that was

When Sheriff Susan Benton, the
celebrity judge for the evening,
asked Blair to leave off the shades
the next time he sang "so we can see
your eyes," Elwell cracked, without
missing a beat, "of course the
Sheriff doesn't like tinted-win-

The five junior finalists are: Sydni
Hornick; Bella Mareno, 5; Larissa
Meagher, 9; Candace Nancino; and
Nala Price, 10.
.The five teen finalists are: Ryan
Blair; Christopher Hawthorne Jr.,

The audience chose Sydni
Hornick and Kaeli Spurlock as the
respective People's Choices.
Idol founder Diane Walker said
she has been posting clips from the
competition on Facebook, which
have received a lot of positive com-
mentary.
The junior finals are scheduled
for Thursday, which will also be the

The teen finals are scheduled for-
Oct. 1, when more adults will sing
for the first time.

getting married in Jamaica, that she'd had an opportunity
to attend, but elected to stay for the competition instead.

Q 41

VP


Letting go with


both barrels-


Once upon a time, there
was a land ruled by leaders
who were just ahd wise.
They strove tO do what was
best for theirpeople within
the confines of the laws set
down by th leaders who
created th Wd a long time
ago. �
If those ft the ruling city
wanted to to something that
the land's documents did not
give them the power to do
(say, give everyone in the
kingdom-health care) they
asked the people to give
them that power and have it
inscribed in said documents.
If there was disagreement
about such things, both sides
- sat down and respectfully
discussed their differences
without throwing out out-
landish accusations (such as
that the current leader who
wanted the power to give
everyone health care was
really a demon who wanted
to crush the kingdom under
his mighty thumb). They put
the welfare of the people and
the laws the creators of the
kingdom as first priority.
And the kingdom flour-
ished.
Yeah, it's a fairy tale. In
reality, the current political
debate is being conducted in
such a manner as to make a
toddler's temper tantrum
look like a reasonable
response to their parents
wanting them to go to bed at,
a semi-decent hour.
I am ticked off. By the
time I've finished with this
particular column I will
probably succeed in offend-
ing everyone on the planet
and some people in alternate
dimensions. I do not care.
I'm going to get this off my
chest.
Because I believe in
cleaning one's own house
first, Fm going to start off
by addressing those on the
right, since we tend to agree
on a lot of things. At least
we used to.
Look, I love you guys. A
lot of you are friends of
mine. But when I hear some
of you, I have to wonder if
some of your brain cells
exploded when Obama was
elected president.
Soine of the rhetoric I've
heard reminds me of about
15 years ago, when all I
heard was that black heli-
copters were coming any day
and the back of certain high-


Laura's
Look
Laura Ware

way signs held a secret code
to direct the black tanks to
where they should deliver
people like me so that those
who wanted a one-world
government could take over
our fair land.
Well, it's been over a
decade and'I haven't seen
any of this. Maybe the tanks
lost the code book?
Look, my fellow conser-
vatives, there are enough
legitimate areas of disagree-,
ment with liberals without
going off into la-la land.
Quit destroying your credi-
bility by refusing, for exam-
ple, to believe Obama is an
American citizen (Yes, he
is. I've studied it and the
evidence holds. Knock it
off).
Lest those on the left think
they have escaped my rant,
it's your turn.
I love you guys, too.
Many of you are also my
friends, and I value that with
some of you I can conduct a
debate with no threat to our
friendship:
But some of you take any
questioning of what the
President or the Democrats
propose as racist, wild-eyed
insanity, or just that the
opposition is a bunch of
greedy people who wouldn't
lift a finger to help a fellow
human being.
Some of us have concerns
about the federal government
gaining more power. Some
of us look at what the feder-
al government has done in
the past and are not con-
vinced they can do it better
in the future.
I'd add a rant about how
the left seems to ignore that
our founding fathers intend-
ed that the federal govern-
ment's powers were sup-
posed to be limited, but
you're probably tired of that
particular gripe.
In the end, I'm tired of
both of you. Left and right.
A pox on both your houses.
And if Obamacare passes, I
hope it doesn't cover that
particular ailment.

dent. She can be contacted by

EXPRESSIONS OF FREE SPEECH

'Our nation's tradition offree speech is
premised on the notion we do not
prohibit expression merely because it
has negative effects. We criticize,
rather than criminalize, speech with
which we disagree.'


MATTHEW BERRY
general counsel for the FCC, 1999


A revolutionary
concept at our feet
Editor:
While mowing today I
observed a truck speeding
down the road pulling a
small, empty trailer. The
trailer bounced up and down*
in tow, alternately weaving
between oncoming traffic to
the left, and inching toward
mailboxes on the right shoul-
der. The driver was obviously
unaware that the speed of
travel had exceeded safe lim-
its of the unloaded trailer.
I began to formulate a
mathematical equation that
would forever change the
way we drive if properly
implemented. The concept
revolves around pressure.
With properly regulated
black plate pressure, one
could expect to see a dramat-
ic increase in the safety of
our roads. Other added bene-
fits surrounding correct
amounts of black plate pres-
sure include increased fuel
efficiency, leading to more
money in our pockets, and
reduced emissions.
A driver can also expect
the probability of receiving a
traffic citation t6 be reduced
dramatically as 4a surprising
side effect.
What a concept.
By reducing the pressure
on just one of the thousands
of mechanical parts that
make up our automobiles we
can collectively save count-
less lives, and millions of
dollars. The best part of it all
is that the modification does
not require a visit to your
mechanic, and it is absolutely
free.


TODAY'S LETTERS
All vehicles are equipped
with some variation of the
black plate.
To find the black plate on
your own vehicle, simply
open the driver door, and
look downward toward the
brake pedal. Immediately to
the right of the brake pedal,
you will find the "black
plate."
This is a very significant
4art of your vehicle that you
ave complete control over.
Proper pressure applied to
this device could save you
money, and maybe a life.
Perhaps your own life.

AP Speaker Series
reflects heart of
Highlands County
Editor:
Highlands County is rich
in history - and rich in peo-
ple who helped make that,
history. For three summers
in a row, the Historical
Society of Avon Park has
sponsored a Summer Sunday
Speakers Series, with the
topics usually reflecting that
history and the speakers
often the same folks who
made that history.
Now that the 2009 series
has ended, we'd like to say
thanks to those speakers who
volunteered to turn our hot
summer Sunday afternoons
into a time of relaxing infor-
mation and entertainment.
First off, thanks to Walt
Pierce talking about a van-
ishing piece of Americana
that he is keeping alive:

barnstorming from air show
to air show, complete with a
pair of wing-walkers. As a
bonus, he also offered some
history about the Avon Park
Executive Airport. And
thanks to Airport Manager
C.B. Shirey for giving visi-
tors a tour of the new air ter-
minal.
Thanks to those former
faculty and staff members of
South Florida Community
College who shared stories
about the precarious begin-
nings of the school. The
panel included Roberta
Flowers, Dr. Wilfred
Beumel, Gene Statler, Don
Farrens and Bill Hood.
Thanks to author/historian
Dr. Nancy Dale and local
ranchers Glenn and Joy
Murphy, who gave visitors a
"bulls-eye" view of cattle
ranching - then and now.
Thanks to a panel of Avon
Park Noon Rotarians for a
discussion on the early days
of Rotary in Avon Park. The
panel was made up of Walter
Nunnallee, moderator, and
Stanley Wells, David Lanier,
Don Farrens and Bud
Worden.
And thanks to Barry
Smith, a former WASP
(Women's Airforce Service
Pilot) for her tales of life as
a civilian pilot for the mili-
tary during World War II.
For those of us who
attended these talks, they
made for a rich - and
rewarding - summer.

ended program and the cost
inevitably skyrocket. Fool,
me once, shame on you; fool
me twice, shame on me.
The president admitted
that this speech was short on
details, and his audience
laughed. Probably because
he finally spoke the truth.

From The
Right Side
Dale OZ'eary'

Lie to me

I've been watching the
new television series "Lie to
Me," in which the lead char-
acters use new scientific
research, in micro expres-
sions to determine if people
are lying. This has caused *
me to look at people's faces
to see if their expressions I
match their words.
So when President Obama
addressed the congress on
health care on Wednesday,1
night, I found myself watch-
ing his mouth and eyes, the
tilt of his chin and body lan-
guage.
I am no expert on this, but
then it didn't take an expert
to see that throughout most
of the speech, the president
was very angry. He might
have talked about bipartisan
cooperation, but his eyes
said "My way or the high-
way." He kept drawing his
lips in, which to me said, "I
am holding back from saying
what I really think of you
people who are criticizing
me."
But then he didn't really
hold back. He lashed out
against the opponents of the
Democrats' plan. He accused
his critics of lies and distor-
tions. The problem was that
in the next sentence; he dik-
torted what his critics have
actually said.
I went to a town hall
meeting. The people there
wanted something done, but
they had read the bill and '
this wasn't it. The President
accused his opposition of *
opposing all change, but tlhis
.was a blatant lie. During tie
speech, Republican
Congressmen waved copies
of their plan, which includes
those changes Americans
want, starting with tort
reform.
The Democrats are out-
raged that Rep. Joe Wilson
(R-South Carolina) shouted
out in the middle of the
speech, "You lie!" I suppose
it is-bad manners when a
congressman yells at the
president, but I would be
willing to bet that all around
America in the privacy of
their living rooms,
Americans who have spent
the last few month educating
themselves about the con-
tents of the proposed bill
were yelling at their televil
sions "You're lying!"
Is the President going to'
apologize for gathering the
congress together and giving
them a political speech in
which he insulted not only'
those in congress in both
parties who had the gall to'
disagree with him, but alsd
the millions of honest
Americans who are asking'
ihe simple question "How
are we going to pay for
this?"
The fact is that no one
with an ounce of sense can
imagine that we can pass a
trillion dollar .health care bill
without adding a penny to
the deficit, passing the costs
on to small businesses and
the middle class or in any
way negatively affecting
service.
If the administration
believes it can achieve this
miracle by cutting waste and
fraud, do it now. Start today.
Seeing is believing. Once
they have achieved this
$500,000,000 savings, then
American people might
believe them, but until then
people simply don't trust the
federal government to get it
done right. When has any
entitlement programs come
in within the projected cost

Church a remarkable success


Continued from page 1A
are more people over 65 in
the United States than there
are in all of Canada, that two
thirds of all people who
lived to 65 are still living,
and that Highlands County
has more seniors per capital
than any other Florida coun-
ty.
This knowledge became a
burden on his heart.
At the time, he and his
wife Marjorie were living in
and managing Sebring
Village Mobile Home Park.
He approached the park
about starting a Sunday
Bible class in the park's
recreation center, but there
was a reluctance to mixing
religion with social gather-
ings.
Instead, with only the idea
of starting a seniors' min-
istry, he rented a store front
with his own money to cre-
ate a senior center devoted
to Bible study and fellow-
ship.
In the beginning it was
simply him, his wife, and
seven interested individuals.
But after about seven
years and two moves, the
ministry had grown into an
actual congregation of
almost 80 people. Haas had
to face the fact God was
leading him where he had
never expected to go.


'It had to have
been God. We
stand in
amazement.'
BETTY SIMMONS
church treasurer
He bought three acres of
land on New Life Way and
began to build a new church.
That was 11 years ago
now and the sanctuary is not
only completed, so are study
rooms, Sunday service child
care rooms, the parsonage,
and a new addition that
serves as kitchen and dining
room. Having its own gener-
ator, that space can be used
in weather emergencies.
But what Haas' friends
and congregants find more
amazing, even awesome, is
that the entire enterprise has
been paid for in full.
Asked how he managed to
accomplish that large a task,
Haas credits God's blessings.
At the same time, he is
proud of his congregation,
which has grown to about
140 members, and grateful
for their generosity.
"I am a very, very strong
advocate of tithing," he said.
"Not only do I preach it, this
church pays it too."
He spoke about the 22 dif-


ferent mission projects the
church supports, from the
local New Life Mission, to
Church Disaster Relief, to
the American Bible Society.
In addition, the church has
helped bring 100 Jews from
Russia to Israel.
"I think that's why God
has blessed this church,"
Haas said.
"It had to have been God,"
said Betty Simmons, the
church's treasurer. "We stand
in amazement. A more hon-
est man I've never known."
Wes Olsen, a member of
the congregation, also sees
God's hand at work. At the
same time he believes Haas
deserves some of the credit.
"Pastor Haas has a gen-
uine willingness to listen to
people and stay in tune with
all that pertains to God and
His work on earth," he said.
"Carrying forth the work of
a pastor at age 81 is almost
unthinkable. Still, Pastor
Haas continues and displays
a much sharper intellect than
much younger ministers."
As for Haas, "If I could
send only one message it is
that our church, The
Fellowship of Christ, is sen-
ior sensitive, and I would
like to invite any senior who
does not have a (spiritual)
home to come and worship."

Local teen dies after flu-like illness


Continued from page 1A
"decency" and "concern for the family."
Hollinger said the boy had been out of
school for a few days but he was not sure how
many.
Parents of Sebring High School students
were sent home a press release from the Health
Department that went over strategies to keep
, the spread of the disease to a minimum.
They wanted to "remind everyone to wash
their hands frequently, stay home from work or
school if they feel ill, and cover their mounts
with a tissue or their sleeve if they are cough-
ing," the press release stated.


It said those precautions will greatly reduce
the risk of transmission of all flu viruses,
whether seasonal or H1N1.
The health department said Hamilton had no
reported pre-existing conditions or chronic ill-
nesses other than flu-like symptoms and a high
fever the past few days, but would not specu-
late on the cause of death at this point.
"We will confirm with lab tests and at that
point we can create a plan of what we are
going to do next," Moran said.
Since May of this year there have been 37
confirmed cases of HIN1 swine flu in
Highlands County, with the majority of the
cases concentrated in children.

: AP airport board wary of

proposed authority plan


Continued from page 1A
south side of runway 9-27.
The taxiway would extend
past the end of the runway
and have turnaround and
crossover space at the west-
ern side.
The board also hopes to
extend runway 4-22 in the
future.
Members went on the
record with concerns regard-
ing the city council's push to
create an airport authority.
. "The city wants to wash its
hands of the airport," John
1 Barben, the chairman of the
board, said. "The current
mayor and council are not
interested in paying another
dime. That's just not reality."
He added that at the same
time the council wants to
appoint authority members,
meaning it would have influ-
ence without responsibility.


The creation of the author-
ity would remove the city
from liability in the event of
some disaster.
"I'm concerned about big
liabilities when a city leaves
you out there hanging,"
Barben said. "Land that,
belongs to the city now will
belong to the authority. You
could be left holding the bag.
"It gives me heartburn so
much I'm not sure I want to
sit on an authority," Barben
added.
Board member Jim Renfro
agreed. "If there was money
to fight over, (the authority)
wouldn't be on the table."
The board is disappointed
in the lack of imagination
regarding the airport's future.
"Look at what Sebring's
done," Barben said. "(Their
airport is) an asset and creat-
ed a lot of jobs."


New group to help those

with mental illness


Continued from page 1A
with mental illnesses and
their friends and family
members.
Some of the examples of
classes NAMI will host
' include Family to Family, for
' families affected by mental
illness; Peer to Peer, for those
suffering from mental illness;
and "in our own voice," to
learn about mental illness
from people who have expe-
rienced it.
% "Peer to peer should start
in middle to late October,"
:Medick said. "They can con-
: tact me to sign up; that's a
: free class."
Classes will be taught by
those who have already expe-
rienced what it is like to
; either live with a mental ill-
: ness or with a family member
,l


who is suffering from a men-
tal illness.
For example, in the Family
to Family class, the person
teaching the class will be
talking to students about their
-experiences with a member
of their family that has a
mental illness, Medick said.
For more information
about NAMI visit nami.org,
the group's national Web
page, or contact Medick at
386-5687. He can also be
reached at the e-mail address
namihighlands@yahoo.com.
"Being in the mental
health field I feel that this
could help people in need,"
he said. "We have support
groups like (Alcoholics
Anonymous,) we need more
help in the mental illness
side. With this we are going
to nip that in the bud."

Cubs or

'Mets -

which is

worse?

Don't worry, I
mention the Rays,
Marlins too
OK, looking at the respec-
tive records, it would seem
obvious that the Cubs are
having a better season than
the New York Mets.
But in the eyes of their
faithful, which team is really
haying the more awful sea-
son?
It's an apt comparison,
actually, since the teams'
respective payrolls are virtu-
ally identical.
The Mets came into the
2009 season with a team
payroll of $135,773,988, the
Cubs, $135,050,000.
A $723,000 difference,
sure, but when you're talk-
ing hundreds of millions,
that difference isn't quite so
pronounced.

Dragons hold back Storm(s)



in Celebration for first win


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
News-Sun correspondent
CELEBRATION - After
facing off with Hardee and
Sebring to open their sched-
ule, the Lake Placid Green
Dragon football team left
the Heartland in search for
their first win of the season.
Lake Placid found that
win as they blew past the
Celebration Storm 31-0 in
Kissimmee.
The Green Dragons put on
a show as they managed to
score on their opening two
drives along with scoring on
special teams.
The only Storm that was
able to stop the Dragons on
the night came from Mother
Nature with
Lake Placid four seconds
3 1 to go in the
Third quarter
as the game
Celebration was called
O due to light-
ning.
"This is an
exciting day for us," com-
mented head coach Jason
Holden. "The kids played a
great game and we really are
starting to come together as
a team."
The Dragons got the
offense rolling from the
opening drive as they put
together an impressive 8-
play, 73-yard drive that was
capped off by a touchdown
strike from Kirk Veley to
Devontra Flemming.
On the drive the Dragons
converted on two third
downs and one fourth down.
"Offensively we were
able to improve on things
from a week ago." said
Holden. "We sustained our
blocks and the back ran the
ball hard. We also had a
strong passing game to go
along with it."
Stephen Guelff added the
PAT to put the Dragons up
7-0 with 7:29 off the clock.
The Dragon defense went

to work following a boom-
ing kickoff from Guelff who
put the ball in the endzone
for a touchback.
"We got after it quite a bit
on defense," said Holden.
"We were running to the ball
and hitting hard."
The Lake Placid defense
gave up a first down but dug
deep and forced a punt.
On the ensuing drive the
Dragons went 67 yards on
11 plays and was capped off
by a thundering Caleb Jones
run from six yard out with
48 seconds to go in the first
quarter.
Guelff added the PAT to
put the Dragons up 14-0.
The defense came up big
for the Dragons on their next
series as they forced the
Storm to punt the ball away.
Celebration booted a high


kick that was fielded at the
Dragon 43 by the speedy
Tony Gonzalez.
Gonzalez made the first
tackler miss and then fol-
lowed a big block from
Taylor Price that sprung him
for a 57-yard score.
Guelff added the PAT to
put the Dragons up 21-0.
Over the next several
minutes of the second quar-
ter, Celebration was forced
to punt twice and both times
the Dragons put together
long drives of over 40 yards
but stalled out.
The first drive stalled at
the Celebration 29-yard line
and the other stalled at the
Storm's 15.
After turning the ball over
on downs that second time,
Celebration was looking to
put a score in just before


half.
On the third play of the
drive, the Storm signal
caller heaved a pass deep
down the sideline that was
intercepted by Harrison
Hyre. .
With only 20 seconds left
on the clock, Holden pulled
out the two-minute offense -
but all the Dragons needed
was 14 seconds.
That is all it took for
Veley to find Gonzalez on a
35-yard pass that was taken
the distance thanks to a key
block from Guelff.
Guelff added the PAT to
put the Dragons up 28-0
with four second to go in the
half.
Following the halftime
show, Celebration got the

Brittany Collison proved a much-needed line of defense, totaling more than 30 digs in
Lake Placid's 3-1 win at Tenoroc Thursday night.


Lady Dragons top Titans,


remain undefeated


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
Pulling up to, and walk-
ing into, the new Tenoroc
High School and its' gym-
nasium, the .Lake Placid
volleyball team was struck.
"It's a beautiful school,"
head coach Marilyn Jones
said. "It's brand new and the
gym is really nice
and spacious." Lake I
Seeing her team's
first few games
against the new dis-
trict foe Lady Titans, Ten
Jones had a different
reaction.
"It was pretty
ugly," she said. "We
warmed up well, but in our
first game, we just couldn't
get anything."
That might explain the
25-13 loss they were handed
in the opener.
But the four-time defend-
ing districtchampions soon
regrouped and found their


p

game, for. the most part.
"We made some changes
and some girls really came
up big," Jones said. "Taylor
Miller was everywhere, dig-
ging balls left and right."
The end result was a 25-
22 win and with the momen-
tum and reformed confi-
dence back on their side, the
Lady Dragons were
lacid ready to roll.
And roll they did,
taking the final two
games by 25-16 and
25-13 scores to move
their season record to
3-0, all district
matches thus far.


"Tenoroc isn't a bad
team," Jones said. "But we
weren't having a real good
night."
And the stats backed up
the fact that Lake Placid
was relying on one part of
the game far too much.
"We had one block on the


night," she said. "One
block. We weren't getting
stops up front and that put
the pressure on the back. We
had over 100 digs on the
night, with Brittany
Collison having more than
30 by herself."
A lopsided set of num-
bers, which certainly pro-
vide a wake-up call to the
front line, but could also be
an advantage down the road,
showing that the Dragon
diggers are more than up to
answering the call.
"We weren't really on,
but you're going to have
nights like that," Jones said.
"And it's nice that the girls
were able to get the win
even on a night like that."
An off night is something
they'll hope to stay away
from Monday, as the Lady
Dragons will host county
rival Sebring for a 7:30
p.m., non-district match..


Lady Devils improve record


with win over McKeel


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK - The
Avon Park Lady Devils
improve their record with
their 25-14, 25-21, 25-17
win over McKeel on
Thursday night a
home. Avoz
The victory puts I
the Devils at a 3-1 |
record in the district Mc
and a 3-1 record for
the season so far.
"We played a per-
fect game," said
Stephanie Devlin, Avon
Park's head coach.
"The girls continue to
improve every game, and I
feel we passed the stage of
learning our position and
are well on our way to play-
ing skillful volleyball,"


Devlin said.
The Devils were down a
couple of key players dur-
ing the match-up with
McKeel, freshman ace serv-
er Teresa Devlin and libero
Mariah Hodge were
Park both out because of
illness.
According to
3 Devlin, the other bar-
Keel rel of the freshman
service shotgun,
fl Ashley Chacon, was
still firing, using
McKeel's defense to
soft touch a couple of aces
into the middle of the court.
"Ashley Chacon had
some great top spin serves.
She had them digging from
the middle all night,"
Devlin said.


The win was a long way
from the team in preseason,
but Devlin still feels that the
teal test is the next time
they play cross-county rival
Lake Placid.
"It has been said that you
can lose 25 games during
the season and still win dis-
tricts. I think that our tough-
est team to beat is going to
be Lake Placid," Devlin
commented.
Avon Park will face off
against Ft. Meade on
Monday, a confident Devlin
is sure that her team can
adjust on the fly.
"I have no idea what they
look like, but we know
where to go and what is
expected of us," she said.
"We finally have it."


Lady Streaks race past Chargers


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING - The Lady
Blue Streaks saw an upswing
after two straight match loss-
es with a three-game sweep
of visiting Liberty Thursday
night.
Aces were the rule of the
night as Sebring served up
nine of them in a 25-12 open-
ing-game win.
Jaye Whitehead served up
five of those aces, all in a
row, as Sebring (3-2 record,
2-2 in district) pushed a
three-point lead up to eight.
A few point trades later,
two Britt Augustine kills
sandwiched
Sebring consecutive
Anna West
3 aces before
Augustine had
Liberty two aces of
S her own to
seal the win.
The Lady
Chargers made it a bit closer
in the second game, keeping
it close early and then rallyi-
ing from a 22-15 deficit to
close to within one at 22-21.
The Streaks scored twice
to edge it back out, but
Liberty added two in a row to
trim it- to one again before
Sebring closed out the 25-23
victory.
Perhaps woken up by the
close call, the Streaks came
together for their best effort
of the night in the third
game, racing out on an 11-
point run to blow open a 4-2
contest, and win going away,
25-8.
"We didn't even touch a
volleyball yesterday," head
coach Venessa Sinness said.
"We all just met and I wanted
them to think about what
motivates them, what they
need to do as individuals for
the team.
"We came out a little flat
initially," she continued.


News-Sun photo by DAN HUOIHNE
Britt Augustine fires away, serving up one of her six aces
on the night in Sebring's 3-0 win over Liberty Thursday.


"But they really played great
in that third game and it was
great to go out on a high note
like that."
Augustine and Whitehead
lead the service attack with
seven aces each on the night,
while Anna West and Kaley
Walter paced the offense with
seven and five kills, respec-
tively.
"When we get in a groove,
like we did in the third game,
it's easy to win," Whitehead
said. "But when we lose, we
have trouble communicating


and it seems to go downhill."
"The talk yesterday was
about showing heart on the
court, staying consistent and
motivated," Augustine said
of Wednesday's team meet-
ing. "We did better with' it
tonight, but there's still a lot
we need to improve."
The Streaks should have
all the motivation it needs
when it heads to Lake Placid
to face the Lady Dragons
Monday night in non-dirtrict
play.


Allen racks up the yardage,

Teddy Allen looks for running room on this play and found plenty of it Friday, gaining 174
yards on 21 carries, in the Red Devils win over Okeechobee.

out.
On the following drive,
the Dragons drove 61 yards
to the nine-yard line where
the drive stalled forcing the
Dragons to attempt a 27-
yard field goal that split the
uprights.
The score pushed the
Dragons lead to 31-0 with
5:11 to go in the third quar-
ter.
As both teams traded pos-
sessions, the storms began
to roll in and all players
were forced off the field due
to lightning.
Due to the weather condi-
tions, the Dragons were able
to pull away with a 31-0
victory without ever making
it to the fourth quarter.
Lake Placid was led in the
rushing department by
Jones who had 18 rushes for
129 yards, while Navahri
Holden rushed eight times
for 41 yards.
"Our backs really hit the
holes hard and took the
holes that the lineman made
for them," Holden said..
Veley had an impressive
night through the air as he
went 7-for-12 for 134 yards
and two touchdowns.

he caught two passes for 51
yards along with the 53-

"He is an all around good
player that plays both sides
of the ball at 100 miles-per-
hour."


The Dragons will look to
build upon this win next
Friday, this time in the
Heartland, with a contest at
Avon Park.


Streaks can't get handle on Hardee


Continued from 1B
sideline, a diving Wildcat
snared it for an interception.
That turnover was turned
right back over as Sebring
pounced on a fumble to get it
at the Hardee 40, but the
Wildcat defense really start-
ed to step it up.
Two runs netted no gain
and a screen pass went for an
eight yard loss, forcing a
punt and after a trade-off of
ineffective series by both
teams, they went into the half
with the 7-0 margin.
Sebring opened up with
possession in the second
half, but it seemed the
Wildcat defense was in full
attack mode, finding holes in
the line and forcing a three-
and-out.
Hardee didn't fare any bet-
ter it's next go-round, nor did
Sebring as Grubb was under
constant pressure deep in his
own territory.
Soon enough, he was


drilled and had the ball
knocked loose near the goal
line by Jacob Nowakowski,
who then leapt on it in the
end zone for a 14-0 Hardee
lead.
Under heavy pressure
again, Grubb and Sebring
benefited from a pass inter-
ference call and then returned
to the ground game with
Burnett racing for 19 yards
on two carries.
But another Wildcat sack
wound up forcing another
punt and it took just two
plays before Youyoute broke
through the line and raced 77
yards for his second score to
make it 21-0 at 4:12 of the
third.
Seeking to mix it up a bit,
Devin Clarke stepped in to
take snaps from the shotgun
in a possible Wildcat offense
to go against the Wildcat
defense.
But other than a five-yard
gain for Clarke, the defend-


ing Wildcats weren't budg-
ing.
With the ball back, Hardee
wasted little time as Lindsey
,shot up the gut for a 40-yard
touchdown to provide for the
final margin.
"We had two early that we
didn't put in, and throughout
the game we had opportuni-
ties," Hamlin said. "We did-
n't catch balls, we didn't pro-
tect very well in the second
half.
"Defensively, we did a
-good job in the first half and
just gave up that one long
run," he continued. "But with
us not taking care of our
business offensively that put
too much strain on the
defense. But we've just to go
in there, regroup and get bet-
ter at what we need to do."
Sebring takes its' show on
the road this coming Friday,
traveling to Lake Region for
a contest with the new dis-
. trict opponent Thunder.


Smiling through the stinkiness


Continued from 1B
The two teams were sec-
ond and third in team pay-
roll, behind you know who,
creating high expectations
for both teams.
Adding to those expecta-
tions were the Mets moving
into their brand new ball-
park and the Cubs begin-
,ning year 101 of the
rebuilding plan.
As of today, Friday, the
Mets were at 62-78, fourth
place in the National
League East, 18 games
behind the Phillies and only
saved from the cellar by a
horrible Washington
Nationals team.
The Cubs, at this time,
stand at 71-67 and are in
second place in the
National League Central,
seemingly in a much better
spot.
But they're 11 games
out of first and 8% out of
the Wild Card race - mean-
ing they're closer than New
York is, but still have little
to no hope of getting a
whiff of the postseason.
But the comparison's
really end there, because
it's the Mets who truly can
blame injuries for their
downfall this season.
Injuries are a part of
every season, for every ball
team, but what happened to
the Mets this year was
beyond overkill.
Names like Jose Reyes,
Carlos Beltran, Carlos
Delgado, Gary Sheffield
and David Wright - All-
Stars all, high-priced big
hitters who have each spent
time on the disabled list
this season, a good portion
of those names who are still
on it.
Add in relievers J.J. Putz
and Billy Wagner, along
with their key offseason
acquisitions for starting
pitching, Oliver Pe'rez, and
holdover starter John *
Maine.


Missing names and tal-
ents like that for some of
the season can really hurt a
team.
Missing as many of
them, for as long as they
have, will decimate any
team.
So the Mets have defi-
nitely had a worse season,
with definitive explana-
tions.
And while the Cubs are
closer, and have had some
injuries of their own, they
will end up going home,
just like the Mets, when the
regular season concludes.
And the explanations are
just as simple as the Mets
are, but more insulting.
They've just stunk..
Plain and simple, what it
all boils down to is that key
players might as well have
been on injured reserve for
parts of the season, for all
the good they were doing.
High-priced, com-
bustible, off-season pickup,
Milton Bradley, couldn't hit
his way out of a paper bag
the first half of the year and
has not reacted well to the
Bleacher Bums holding him
accountable.
Even higher priced
acquisition the season
before, Alfonso Soriano,
somehow kept smiling
through ii all, but was even
more a target for the boo-
birds than Bradley with his
seemingly indifferent atti-
tude to his season-long
stinkiness..
Key offensive cog,
Aramis Ramirez, did miss
some time with a separated
shoulder, and he was
missed.
And staff ace Carlos
Zambrano did a couple
short stints on the DL, but
even when healthy, his
starts this year have been a
roll of the dice as to, in
using quotes from "Bull
Durham," whether the mil-
lion-dollar arm would show


up, or the five-cent head.
So the Mets and Cubs
have both had far less than
expected seasons.
The Mets get the pass for
not having the expected
players out on the field,
while those that the Cubs
put on the field were the
ones that didn't meet
expectations.
Then you've got the
Rays, last year's American
League Champions, in
somewhat the same spot as
the Cubs.
Third place in their divi-
sion, 18.5 games out with a
72-68 record.
But that's with a payroll
that is less than half of
Chicago's, and they too
have had key injuries, most
notably to the pitching staff
early in the year, and now
to top- slugger Carlos Pena
to end the year.
And finally the Marlins,
with the lowest payroll in
all of baseball ($100 mil-
* lion less than both the Mets
and Cubs), and still in con-
tention.
A 75-65 record, five
games out in their division,
5% out in the Wild Card.
I'm sure they've had
some injury issues, but
honestly, I couldn't tell you
who they were, since other
than a few players, I don't
know who the rest of the
Marlins are.
Hanley Ramirez is the
stud (and, to me, the best
player in the.National
League - for another col-
umn), and they've gotten
surprisingly good pitching
from the likes of Josh
Johnson.
But other than that, I
have no idea how they're
doing it.
Obviously, neither do the
Cubs.

SENIOR SCENE


News-Sun * Sunday, September 13, 2009

How many of me are out there?


I love presents ... especial-
ly unexpected ones.
Yesterday a package was
delivered by UPS to Pearl J.
Carter. I hadn't ordered any-
thing so I figured it was one
of my dear children or
friends. But when I looked at
the sender, 'Care A Lot Pet
Supply,' I figured it was one
of Miss Bruce's admirers ...
she has many.
I couldn't wait to open it
up and see what was in it: A
big hose and attachment for
bathing a dog, hmm, and a
big brush ... it is longer than
Miss Bruce ... and a big bot-
tle of hnouth wash, hmmm for
me or the -dog? Well, a dear
friend's sister .has a habit of
sending Miss bruce things
like designer dresses by the
famous "dress designer
Mizrahi, could it be from
her?
Digging a little deeper, I
found a packing slip for the
items and in the space for


"send to" and "ship
to" was the name
PEARL J. CARTER,
but the address was
in Davie. Well, I
promptly called the
company and told
them there was a
mistake. "Oh no, it
should be delivered Pearl':
to you. It says so Pearl
right here." "But I
live in Lake Placid and never
ordered anything."
We went back and forth
and I couldn't convince the
company that they had
shipped the package to the
wrong address ... and person.
They weren't very helpful.
Being frugal, I didn't not
call information for $1.25 to
identify this Pearl J. Carter in
Dania. Rather I spent two
-hours finding a site for free
information on telephone
numbers and addresses.
(Which is good because now
I can look up anybody, any-


s


% where, reverse num-
bers, etc.)
I found out a lot
about the other Ms.
Carter from this site
besides her tele-
phone number: who
lived in her house-
hold; how old she
Gems was; the apartment
carter number ... I already
knew she had a dog.
So I called her.
"Hello may I speak to
Pearl J. Carter. This is Pearl
J. Carter calling" "Who?"
"Pearl J. Carter" (By now
you know our names.) I
explained the situation and
she was ever so grateful. She
had been waiting for her
package. It seems that she
had moved about three
months ago, and I suppose
when they couldn't deliver to
her old address, they looked
up ... you know who ... and
delivered it to me.
OK, mystery solved. But

what ensued is extraordinary
... beyond the realm of belief.
I asked her what the middle
initial stood for ... June ...
same as mine. We are rough-
ly the same age and are orig-
inally from the tri-state area.
We both love dogs. Reading
and swimming are our
favorite hobbies and we both
loved receiving presents and
mail ... not e-mail, but the
kind delivered by the mail-'
man into our mailboxes. We
shared the joy of opening and
reading a letter from our
friends and both of us were
involved in an ongoing corre-
spondence with several
friends.
One expects pleasure from
the ordinary joys of life like
births and weddings and
wonderful vacations but what


can compare to an unexpect-
ed awesome surprise of a
totally impossible coinci-
dence. It is such a weird
occurrence to turn out so
happily ... a lost package
restored; the opportunity of
making a new friend. Yes, we
agreed to correspond. I carry
it around in my heart and
keep referring to the unex-
pected wonderment of such a
singular occurrence.
And yet ... I feel ... what?
Conflicting feelings?
Unfinished? Robbed? Weird?
As if part of me has been
taken away. Or worse still,
how many other Pearl J.
-Carters are there out there? I
could Google it, but I don't
think I want to know.
Perhaps from now on, I
think I will refer to myself as


one does on the Internet with
a full name like: Pearl Jand
Doe One Hundred Eight
Seven Carter. Surely the odds
are zero that there is another
person out there with thai
name.
To answer the question,
, "What's in a name?" The
answer is identity.
Note: On two separate
occasions 20 years apart, arl

Social Security number td

mildly sensitive on the use oi
my name.

Sweet September: Mark National Honey Month with jar of the miracle food


September
may prove to
be a sweet
month
because it's
National
Honey
Month,
which is
sponsored by
News From the National
The Honey
Watershed Board.
Corine This spe-
Burgess cial month
was pro-
claimed by the U.S. Secretary
of Agriculture and during this
time consumers are encour-
aged to try as many types of
honey as possible and learn
about the sweet, delicious
and nutritious treat. Did you
know that in the United
States there are over 300
types of honey?
Honey has many uses to
humans and we owe a debt of
gratitude to the creatures that
produce it. Honey bees have
no easy task when it comes
to making honey. It is a long
process where the house bee
and the field bee are both
involved.
The first step is for the
field bee to go out and collect
some-nectar.. The bee then
brings the nectar back to the
house bee and transfers it


from tongue to tongue. The
house bee then spreads a
drop of the nectar on the roof
of a cell in a comb. Over the
next couple of days, other
house bees fan their wings
over the nectar drops so that
the moisture evaporates. The
last step is that more house
bees cover every cell filled
with modified nectar with a
thin layer of wax.
For bees, honey is a
source of protein and other
nutrients. Humans also derive
many uses from the sweet
treat. Honey has many nutri-
tional benefits. It is made up
mostly of carbohydrates and
water and is filled with lots
of vitamins and minerals.
Recently, it has been discov-
ered that honey has high con-
tents of antioxidants and a
variety of flavonoids and
phenolic acids. These elimi-
nate free radicals from our
bodies.
All-natural honey is also
used to treat minor burns and
scrapes. It has also been used
-for soothing sore throats and
treating bacterial infections.
A recent review of medical
research documents its effec-
tiveness as an antimicrobial
agent.
Honey is a natural source
of 'energy that contains a
unique mixture of glucose

miles to make 1 pound of honey.


and fructose. It is said that
the unique mixture of sugars .
in honey helps to prevent
fatigue and enhance athletic
performance. Honey is natu-
rally hydrating and non-irri-
tating, making it an excellent
ingredient in many hair and
beauty products.
Honey has been used in
various ways throughout his-
tory. For centuries it has been
used by priests to sweeten
cakes used in religious cere-
monies. Romans used it like


we use sugar today. Cleopatra
most likely used it as a beau-
ty product. In Biblical times,
honey was a main food
source and is mentioned
many times in the Holy
Bible.
Honey bees not only make
honey. They have other,
extremely important func-
tions to humans. The honey
bee is essential for food pro-
duction. As the worker bees
land on flowers and take in
nectar, tiny particles called


pollen stick to their fuzzy
hairs. When the bee visits
another flower this pollen
rubs off and the flower is
pollinated. Many plants will
not produce fruit without the
help of these bees.
In the United States alone,
it is estimated that honey
bees pollinate at least one
quarter of all the fruit pro-
duced for food. That's about
$15 billion worth of work for
these tiny creatures. Honey
bees are certainly one of the
most economically beneficial
insects.
Unfortunately, honey bees
have had a rough time lately.
They have suffered such
challenges as colony collapse
disorder, new pathogens,
small hive beetles, pesticides,
genetically modified crops
and parasitic mites.
To get you started on your
adventurous honey month,
here are a few interesting
facts about honey:
* Honey bees tap 2 mil-
lion flowers and fly more
than 55,000 miles to make 1
'pound of honey.
* The average American
consumes 1.29 pounds of
honey a year.
* The mysterious Colony
Collapse Disorder has killed
more than 33 percent of U.S.
commercial honey bees since


2006.
* Last year, 161 million
pounds of honey were pro-
duced in the U.S.
* Crops such as apples,
cherries, and avocados are 90
percent dependent on honey
bee pollination.
* California, which pro-
duces more than half of the
world's almonds, needs
almost 1 million colonies of
honey bees to pollinate that
crop.
* 600 commercial bee-
keeping operations produce
60 percent of American
honey.
* 95 percent of American
beekeepers are hobbyist with
fewer than 25 hives.
* There are approximate-
ly 300 varieties of honey in
the U.S. The darker the
honey, the higher the mineral
content and antioxidant
potential.
* The world's most
expensive honey is believed
to be Trgothnan manuka
honey from Britain. Only 100
four-ounce jars are made per
year andeach sells for $80,
about $11 a teaspoon..
