SEBRING - Lillie Mae Moses
was born with only one kidney. She
was sickly as a child. Small for her
age, her family called her "Little
Bit."
The only reason this is of interest
is because Moses celebrated her
107th birthday Tuesday.
Hope Hospice recently stopped
providing her services.
"They had to get rid of her," her
niece, Mabel Holt said laughing,
"there wasn't anything wrong with
her."
Instead home health nurses visit
regularly.
Her vision has dimmed, and her
hearing is mostly gone, but her
handshake is strong. She gets up,
grooms herself, makes her way
around the house unaided, and
spends the bulk of her time walking
in her yard or settled in on her front
porch, keeping an eye on the street.
"I dress myself every day,"
Moses said. "Sometimes the
clothes are on wrong or backside
out, but God knows I'm covered
and I'm at home so it's all right."
When she sits down to meals, it
is at a table set with a tablecloth,
candles, and a vase with silk roses.
The only thing her family and

bylHIN1
Marquis Hamilton,
14, died last week
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - Test results
have shown that the cause of
death for Marquis Hamilton,
the Sebring High School
freshman who died last
Friday, was, complications
from H1N1 swine flu.
The '14-year-old didn't
have any underlying health
conditions that contributed to
his death, which came just
days before the US Food and
Drug Administration
approved an H1N1 vaccine.
The approval is in line
with the timetable set up by
the Highlands County Health
Department earlier this sum-
mer.
"It may be sooner than
what we were planning for,
which was a mid-October
delivery," said Tom Moran,
Planning Consultant withthe
health department.
He said there were still
other considerations to make,
like shipping the vaccines to
the state, then the state in
turn delivering them to each
county health department.
"So it depends on the
logistics of getting it from
point A to point B," he said.
"I haven't seen any official
date yet."
Once. the vaccines are
delivered, the Health
Department will start admin-
istering them to the high-risk
groups first, which includes
young people from age 6
months to 24 years, house-
hold members or caregivers
of children under 6 months
old, pregnant women, and
adults age 24 to 65 that have
chronic health problems,
such as diabetes, heart or
lung disease.

Sebring council vows to improve housing, raises garbage rates


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Decent affordable
housing is a concern in Sebring,
according to Mayor George
Hensley, who declared the first
Monday in October as World
Habitat Day at the city council
meeting Tuesday night.
"I join Habitat for Humanity of
Highlands County in the belief that
every man, woman and child should
have a simple, decent, affordable
place to live in dignity and safety,"
Hensley read from the proclama-
tion.
The council unanimously agreed
with Hensley that decent affordable
housing was a concern in Sebring
when they voted 4-0 to support his


proclamation for World
Day.


Habitat


Margie Rhodes was absent from
the meeting.
According to the proclamation,
"over 100 million people in the
world today are homeless, and mil-
lions more face a severe housing
problem - living without adequate
sanitation, security and with irregu-
lar or no electricity."
Hensley agreed that homeless-
ness was a serious problem, and
called upon the citizens of Sebring
to "...take a stand against substan-
dard housing in our neighborhoods,
and in our City of Sebring."
"Together we can close the door
on substandard housing and open
the door to a community in which
everyone enjoys the stability, the
security and the dignity of a decent,
affordable home," Hensley read.
"I, George Hensley, declare


deplorable and substandard housing
conditions unacceptable in my
City."
Immediately after that proclama-
tion, city council voted to tear down
two houses that
were condemned
almost a year ago.
Slated for
October demolition,
a duplex at 418 and
420 Poinsettia Ave.
Hensley and a single home at
434 Poinsettia Ave.,
are both part of the Helen S. Peck
estate.
Both buildings have extensive
damage to the interiors due to holes
in their roofs, and show signs of rot-
ting.
According to city records, the
buildings were condemned for


human habitation on Oct. 20, 2008,
and have been vacant since then.
Additionally, according to the
documents presented at the meeting
on Tuesday, the city plans to fore-
close on the properties.
Executive Director for the
Community Redevelopment
Agency Pete Pollard told council
that the demolitions were in keep-
ing with the CRA's mission.
"This is elimination of slum and
blight," Pollard said.
The board voted unanimously to
accept a bid from Foreman's
Construction in the amount of
$8,120 for the demolition of the
houses.
Additionally, council voted to
amend the rates of commercial
garbage collection, raising the fees
almost three percent across- the


board.
Small commercial accounts that
can be serviced by less than 30-gal-
lon garbage containers will now be
charged $28.12 per month for two
pickups per week.
Small commercial accounts with
master metered will be charged
$19.14 per month for the same serv-
ice.
Larger commercial accounts,
excluding compacted waste and
tires, start at $77.40 for one pickup
per week per cubic yard of the
dumpster and can climb as high as
$986.78 per month for more pick-
ups and up to eight cubic yard con-
tainers.
Compacted commercial volume
will now be charged $17.18 per
cubic yard of waste.
The changes take effect Oct. 1.

McCollum, the 2009 vol-
unteer chair. "I am grate-
ful that volunteering for

Clerk of Courts Bob Germaine checks out the latest additions to his lawn Wednesday
morning. The toilet, toilet paper and signs were left there to kick off a fundraising cam-
paign for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life.


Benton, Germaine help



flush away cancer


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - Highlands
County Clerk of Courts Bob
Germaine walked outside his
house Wednesday morning to
see a toilet and a roll of toilet
paper on his front lawn.
No, his' home wasn't the
site of the latest teenage toi-
let-papering incident or even
an illegal dumping operation.
Germaine, along with
Highlands County Sheriff
Susan Benton, agreed to be
the first to be cited by the
"Potty Police," a gag
fundraiser organized by the
Hometown Justice Relay for
Life team.
The team consists of both
members of the clerk's and
sheriff's offices.
The two household toilets,
one currently at each home,
have been tastefully decorat-
ed and include signs promot-
ing Relay for Life, the major
fundraiser for the American
Cancer Society.
For a minimum $10 dona-
tion, Highlands County resi-
dents can request the delivery


of a toilet to the front yard of
anyone in the county.
Once delivered and placed
in the yard, the recipient may
pay the minimum $10 dona-
tion for removal and delivery
to the address of their choice.
"It doesn't have to be in
your yard, call us and when
it's available we will drop it
off anywhere in the county,"
said team captain Tracy
Ferrante.
To take part in the
fundraiser, contact HCSO Lt.
Paula Weeks at 449-0080.
The idea is actually not
uncommon.
"We went to a meeting in
Sarasota. It was a big thing
Relay puts on for team cap-
tain training," Weeks said.
"We kicked around ideas, we
did workshops and stuff and
that was mentioned."
The training was done in a
large RV park and they had a
toilet going around while
they were there.
"It went from house to
house to house," Weeks said.

Justice team came in second


County: October is Fire

Prevention Month


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - The
Highlands County
Commission passed a resolu-
tion at their regular meeting
on Tuesday declaring
October Fire Prevention
Month.
Jim Harris, a member of
the Highlands County Fire
Services, requested and
received approval to help
raise. countywide awareness
of fire prevention.
"This is a great tool in
helping children to recognize
the danger and provide the
training on how to react,"
Harris told the commission.
Fire Prevention Month is
part of the national campaign
to help prevent deaths due to
household fires that could
"start in an instant and spread
in seconds, leaving families
with as little as two minutes
to escape from a residential


fire" according to the
National Fire Prevention
Association's (NFPA) web-
site.
Objectives of Fire
Prevention Month are to
remind everyone to check
their fire alarms and have a
family plan ready in case a
fire starts.
With smoke alarms, escape
plans and good fire safety
practices, two minutes is
enough time for families to
evacuate unharmed.
Although burns are among
the most painful injuries a
person can live through, the
most common cause of fire-
related deaths, according to
the resolution, is smoke
inhalation.,
Approximately 3,000 peo-
ple die each year as a result
of a home fire, and 200,000
individuals are seen in the
nation's emergency rooms
for burns.


place, this year they're
shooting for the top.
"The sooner you get to
raise the money the more you
raise," she said.
In the end, it's all fun and
for a great cause.
"I've had several family
members die or be survivors
of cancer, even people in this
agency have," Weeks said.
"We need to try and find a
cure."


County receives

$302k to help with

homeless situation


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - The
Highlands County
Commission accepted
about $302,000 in grant
money Tuesday to assist in
slowing the tide of evic-,
tions.
Richard Reinhardt, exec-
utive director of the
Highlands County
Coalition for the Homeless,
informed commissioners
that the current money was
part of the American
Recovery and
Reinvestment Act through
the Federal Housing and
Urban Development
Agency, and that there may
be more on the way.
"This money will help in
assisting 60 to 80 people, it
just depends on what their
needs are," Reinhardt said.
However, according to
Reinhardt, the need is great
in Highlands County.
"People who have never
asked for assistance are
calling us right now. We get
between 10 and 15 calls per
day. One day recently, we
had between 75 to 80 calls.
Our current funding only
covers about 10 to 15 fami-
lies per month. We usually
run out of money in the first
week of the month. It is
hard out there right now,"


'This money will
help in assisting
60 to 80 people.'

RICHARD REINHARDT
director of Highlands
County Coalition for the
Homeless

Reinhardt said.
"The need is so great in
this community that we are
already using whatever
small grants we can get."
To be eligible for the
Coalition assistance, you
have to be two months
behind on your rent, or
have received an eviction
notice.
"We only cover renters
right now. We do have a
program that helps with
utilities, and we try to get
people to pay their rent first
and utilities second, but we
do not cover homeowners
trying to pay a mortgage
currently," Reinhardt told
the News-Sun.
According to the
Highlands County Clerk of
Courts, more than 1,000
Highlands County homes
were in foreclosure by
August, and the coalition's
survey in January showed

A sk anyone
about litter,

littering is bad for
everyone.
Talk to any child about it,
and almost everyone will
agree that littering is wrong.
Question anyone in a nurs-

strongly remembered..
Ride6 down' any state high'-

But one has to wonder, with
all the anti-litter groups out
there, why is there a need to
have clean-up days at our
public lakes?
After all the sentiment and
agreement that litter is bad for :
the' environment and 'bad for
the' people who live in the
environment, namely every-
one outside of plastic bubbles,
there is still litter everywhere.
Now, don't misunderstand.

Lessons to

be learned

from any life

Michael Jackson. An
American icon. Remember
when hb ;as.a,youngster
with his brothers singing "A
BC ... Easy as I, 2, 3"? A lot
of us grew up singing that
song. Then he grew up and
sang,solo:.'-Billie Jean,"
"Beat It," "Got to Be There,".
"Ben," "Rockin' Robin" and
many more.
The gentleman had rhythm,
style and class, even at that.
young age.
Many people have had a
troubled childhood and
allowed it to hinder their
growth as an adult, but
Michael pushed it behind him
and went on to 'become an
American legend. That took a
lot of courage and determina-
tion. The past has kept many
a good person behind.
Of course, there's always
someone to critique the per-
son, looking for flaws. But
I'm learning to look for the
good the person managed to
accomplish, despite whatever
could have held them back.
What motivated that person,
what pushed the person to go
for the gold. Truly we can
learn frdnm anybody's life,
good or bad, what to do,
what not to do.
There will never be anoth-
er Michael Jackson. His
daughter said he was the best
daddy in the world and I'm
sure he was,. He cherished his
children, as you can see in
the videos of them together.
Hopefully we can learn
something from his life:
Keep going forward, cherish
your children and reach out
to your fellow man. And at
the beginning of everyday,
let's not forget to "look at the
man in the mirror" in case we
need to change some of our
ways.
Happy trails to one and all.


to those who brave the depths
of beautiful Lake Denton on
Saturday from 9 a.m. until
noon to fight the battle against
unsightly litter, is to be
applauded.
So, everyone discourages a
litterbug, but go to any large
public beach and as you walk
across the sand thousands of
tiny cigarette filters assault
your feet.
Drive by any large depart-
ment store, and plastic bags
waive their corporate logos
happily to you as you drive by
because you have to make one
more trip'to get milk.
Everyone agrees that clean-
ing, up litter from the lakes,
ibadways and ditches is a
good thing, but the News-Sun
contests 'that it should not be
necessary.
Take a moment when you
are fishing, boating or parking
in a large supermarket's lot
and pick up something as you
walk by.
Never ever throw a wrapper
or cigarette butt down when
you are finished.
And please notify that retail
store when the trash is over-
flowing or the fence line is
full of litter.
You've heard it before, but
we'll say it again - every lit-
tle bit helps.
Now, we realize that you
cannot totally eradicate the
litterbug, but if (and that's a
big IF) only the litter that
escaped accidentally had to be
corralled into those nice
donated Highlands County
Recycling bags, then maybe
we could enjoy the lake with a
nice picnic and not have to
clean out a spot first.

EXPRESSIONS OF
FREE SPEECH

'When we lose
our liberties, it does
not happen in one
dramatic moment,
but gradually
and quietly.'

JOHN E. MOSS
former U.S. Representative,,
D-Calif., 1995


No answers coming
from Senator's office.
Editor:
I- am a Florida resident
greatly concerned about
Cuba leasing drilling rights
to Russia. Having called
Senator (Bill) Nelson's
office several times has
made me even more con-
cerned.
Several weeks ago I spoke
with a young man in his
office and he said the
Senator was opposed to
drilling in the gulf. We all
know that but what about the
situation between Russia and
Cuba? No answer available
as the Senator has not made
a statement about that issue.
This week I called and
talked to a young lady who
once again repeated the talk-
ing point, that the Senator is
opposed to 'drilling in the
gulf. I then asked if she
understood my question. Oh
yes. Upon further question-
ing I realized she did not
know what I was talking
about when she finally said
that that was not a situation
she was familiar with. She
also stated that she had
never read or heard about
the deal between Cuba and
Russia.
Now what I wonder is,
does the Senator even know
about this deal. Are the
young people in his offices
receiving their jobs because
of political favoritism or are
they truly qualified to be
paid with our taxpayer dol-
lars? Why should our sworn
enemies take the oil in the
gulf and make the money
while we have to pay
increased costs for our own
energy? We all know that
Americans are much more
cautious about the environ-
ment than most other coun-
tries. What will the environ-
mentalists do when foreign
drilling creates oil spills?
We.are going to be in seri-
ous trouble, but don't expect
intelligent answers from
Senator Nelson or his staff.

Why a stimulus for
Sebring?
Editor:
Why now a stimulus for
city of Sebring?
Every night when I lay my
head down to sleep, I reflect
on all the idiotic decisions
and crazy ideas that
Washington and our elected
leaders we have elected to
represent us, have dreamed
up to get into our pockets
this day. Every day it seems
there can be no where else to
scam us, but there will
always be tomorrow and the
next day.
Now enough about the
Messiah and his followers.
On to the local scene.
Recently we all learned
that the city of Sebring has


TODAY'S LETTERS
declared that all full-time
employees 'would receive a
$1,000 stimulus check (and
lower amounts for part-time
employees). What in hell are
you city leaders thinking? As
a business man myself, I
have seen a decline in busi-
ness over this recessionary
period of the last two years.
No one bailed me out.
Now I ask you Mr. Carpet
Dealer, Mr. Land Surveyor,
Mr. Truss Manufacturer and
others. Have you experi-
enced any decline in your
businesses? I'm sure the
answer is yes.
Have you had to downsize
to keep on an even keel with
raising costs on everything
we consume?
Here is the next question.
Have any of the employees
you have left gotten a raise
last year? Have they gotten a
nice, large stimulus check?
I bet we are still answer-
ing no.
So the question now is,
how can you all award this
amount of already overspent
taxpayers' money to every-
one?
Yes, these city people are
all important to do their
duties as necessary; howev-
er, they need to tighten belts
as the rest of us have had to
do. Yes, we do have a con-
cern, my wife owns a modest
home on one of the Indian
Streets.
While on a similar sub-
ject, last year our county
sheriff proclaimed that her
staff and all employees
would receive a $3,000
check. Are not we forgetting
that cute incident? It seems
at budget time we have
money to get rid of. Are not
all these above-mentioned
people just thankful for a 40-
hour a week job with bene-
fits and getting a paycheck
that doesn't bounce?
One more issue. We enjoy
your signs Mike, don't back
down!

An allegory -
checker it out
Editor:
With the political football
that's being played, I was
reminded of two other games
that are played using the
same board but have com-
pletely different strategies:
checkers and chess.
Once a game was played
in a large stadium. The audi-
ence was enormous .Two
Master Players agreed to
play a game of checkers and
the prize was the board. All
knew that many treasures
were within it. The chess
master set the board with his
chess pieces. The checker
master argued of the unfair-
ness of this arrangement. But
the chess master's only reply
was "They would be playing
a game of checkers, but he'd
be using he's chess pieces."


The first few moves were
controversial but were
allowed. The checker player
tried to use reason but the
jeers from the audience and
the event makers (deceivers)
cried out, "Where is your
tolerance?"
The checker player
thought rules applied. What
he did not know was there
were no rules in the eyes of
the chess master.
Very soon after the game
started, the chess master had
domination of the board.
Each time he made a move
that the checker player could
not make, the chess master
would answer, "I can do this
but we are playing check-
ers."
Words were exchanged yet
the game went on. Each
move found the checker side
� with less and in more of a
perilous predicament. Each
time the chess master took a
piece, he would throw the
piece on the ground, then
step and crush it until it
became dust. This was
unknown to the checker
player for he was drawn only
to what the next move might
be rather than seeing how all
of the moves were devastat-
ing to the outcome.
When the last play was
finished, the check player
not only had lost the game
but his pieces were
destroyed as well. The .chess
master using a hammer and
sickle destroyed the board to
find the treasure. Then he
placed the treasures in his
pockets.
The audience was com-
pletely silent with unbelief.
But as the smirking chess
master walked out of the sta-
dium these works were heard
"With this strategy, I can't
be stopped."

Avon Park man in jail after bank robbery, chase in Polk County


Continued from page 1A
Wales on Buck Moore Road,
investigating a lead in refer-
ence to a suspicious person
who had just purchased a sil-
ver Mercury Cougar.
Meanwhile, because PCSO
contracted to provide dis-
patching services for the city
of LaRe Wales since 2008, all
Lake Wales Police units were
also aware of the perimeter
being established by Sgt.
Stephenson's shift and could
hear all communication
between the PCSO units.
Within minutes, Sgt.
Stephenson saw a vehicle
matching the suspect vehicle
description approaching him
on Buck Moore Road. He
immediately turned his patrol
car around and began follow-
ing the car, turning on his
lights and sirens and initiat-
ing a traffic stop.
The suspect vehicle imme-
diately fled at a high rate of
speed, refusing to pull over.
Sgt. Stephenson initiated a
pursuit, calling out over the
radio his. progress, which
could be heard by all PCSO
and LWPD units in the area.
With the PCSO helicopter
also in pursuit overhead, the
pursuit continued on into the
city of Lake Wales. LWPD
units set up stop-sticks in
anticipation of the suspect
vehicle's approach, west-
bound on Burns Avenue in
Lake Wales.
After the suspect vehicle
hit the stop-sticks, it turned
southbound onto Scenic
Highway. As the suspect
vehicle's tires deflated, it
turned into the Tic Toc con-
venience store parking lot



Grant to

help local

homeless
Continued from page 1A
1,782 homeless people.
(That.was nearly double the
912 counted the year before.
Reinhardt confirmed that a
majority of the those who
struggle to make ends meet
are victims of the current
unemployment rates.
"I think that the percent-
ages we have right now are
not accurate of the real pic-
ture out there. If you take the
number we have now and add
those who are ineligible for
benefits, then the number
could be close to 20 percent
in Highlands County," he
added.
"We are working on a new
program to try and retrain
some of those in need. We are
meeting with the college and
the Agency for Workforce
Innovation to look at getting
people retrained and into jobs
that are still available.
"There is still a need out
there for truck drivers for
example. Our new program
will help individuals to get
everything they need over
eight weeks, right up to their
CDL, and help them get a
job," Reinhardt said.
The cost for that retraining
is about $4,500 through
South Florida Community
College, but well worth the
investment, according to
Reinhardt.
"The goal is prevention. It
is much easier to help pre-
vent homelessness than to
undo it. If we can keep peo-
ple self-sufficient, then they
are putting tax dollars back
into the system to help the
next family. Helping to
retrain people and give them
the skills they need. in an area
that needs workers is the first
step," he said.
The $302,000 that the
county just received is being
passed through to the Board


of County Commissioners'
Housing Assistance Program,
but Chairperson Barbara
Stewart wanted to make sure
that the gracious funding got
to the right place.
"I want to make sure that
this grant gets to the people,
and not spent on administra-
tion," Stewart told County
Administrator Michael
Wright during the meeting.


and was immediately sur-
rounded by LWPD units, the
PCSO helicopter overhead,
and Sgt. Stephenson, who
was still behind the fleeing
car.
The suspect inside the car,
25-year-old Donnie Edward
Gray Jr. of 2090 Saginaw
Road in Avon Park, remained
in the car and was taken into
custody peacefully. Gray was
taken back to the bank and
positively identified by the
bank teller. The cash he had


taken from the bank was
found in the vehicle, howev-
er, he did not have a gun on
him has he had implied.
"This is the third instance
in 2009 where these two
agencies have proven that
having a joint radio dispatch
system, where city police
officers and deputy sheriffs
can hear each others' calls for
service and actively commu-
nicate with and assist each
other, can be the difference
between a successful arrest


or a suspect getting away,"
said Polk County Sheriff
Grady Judd. "In all three
cases, robbery suspects were
arrested - and they are some
of the most bold, most vio-
lent criminals out there. I'm
proud of the men and women
of both agencies for proving
that together, we are making
a positive difference."
On Jan. 15, LWPD and
PCSO successfully worked
together in a similar manner
and apprehended an armed


robbery suspect shortly after
he robbed a Domino's Pizza
in Lake Wales. In that case,
Christopher Marion fired
shots inside the restaurant
and then fled the scene on
foot. Several resources,
including the PCSO helicop-
ter, K-9 teams, COPS units,
and LWPD officers, quickly
set up a perimeter and were
able to apprehend Marion
before he could hurt or rob
anyone else.
On Jan. 22, LWPD arrested


Christopher Moody - who
was sentenced to death in
1998 for killing citrus grower
Scott Mitchell, but whose
conviction was later over-
turned by the Florida
Supreme Court - shortly
after he and others committed
an armed robbery at an IHOP
in Lake Wales. PCSO assist-
ed with setting up a perime-
ter, ensuring Moody and his
accomplices were, unable to
flee the scene and evade cap-
ture by LWPD.

'I ain't tired of living yet' 1


Continued from page 1A
was 3 or 4 years old.
"I remember picking cotton,"
she said. "The big sack hung over
your shoulder and dragging along
behind you, don't you forget that
now."
She also plowed the fields
behind a mule. In the beginning,
she was so small her father would
pick her up and put her on the
mule's back.
She only went to school to the
fourth grade.
She never learned how to drive,
walking everywhere instead.
She remembers a wind-up
gramophone.
There was no electricity or run-
ning water in the house, but a deep
well outside produced "cold, sweet
water; good water."
The family raised what they
needed to eat. There was a general
store where they bought things like
sugar and salt.
When a hog or cow was
butchered by one family, the entire
community shared it.
In 1921, Moses fell in love and
married Will Moses, a track main-
tenance worker for the railroad,
whose family hailed from
Kissimmee. She moved there to
start a family with him. They had a
boy, Herman, and a girl, Annie
Mae.
Then the railroad transferred
Will Moses to Sebring and the
family made a final move here.
They bought a piece of property
and Will built the home Moses still
lives in.
After raising her children Moses
had gone back to work in domestic


service.
For years she worked with the
Fred Wild family, helping raise
their children, to whom she is still
close. "I love them and they loved
me," she said.
A bittersweet aspect of living so
many years is outlasting those you
love. Will died in 1957 after 36
years of marriage, so she has been
a widow longer than she was mar-
ried.
Moses is not only the last of her
generation, but she's seen her chil-
dren pass away, too. Her son, a
World War II veteran who worked
for the Sebring Animal Hospital
and Dr. William Jernigan for years,
died in 1973 of a heart attack. Her
daughter, a school teacher in
Connecticut, died of cancer in
2004.
Her family has scattered and
spread. It is her niece, Holt who
comes down from Atlanta on regu-
lar intervals to spend time with her
and keep everything humming.
Her life hasn't been without
pain.
Recently someone in a position
of trust betrayed her, without her
knowledge using her home as col-
lateral on a loan the person never
meant to repay. The house went
into foreclosure, but Holt and a
sympathetic lawyer working pro-.
bono worked out a compromise
with the bank ensuring Moses can
stay in her home as long as she
lives.
In the meantime, Moses still
goes to church, still gets caught up
in the spirit, still thanks the Lord
for a life that is full and well-lived.

Lillie Mae Moses celebrated her 107th birthday Tuesday at her home in
Sebring. Here, she relaxes on her porch Thursday morning after taldng a walk
in her yard.

Tests show swine flu caused death of Sebring teen


L.

Continued from page 1A
Although older people
generally have more serious
complications from the flu
because of their age, they are
not being considered a prior-
ity group, said Leona
Braithwaite, epidemiologist
for the health department.
That older demographic,
those older than 52, have
shown some immunity to
H1N1.
Tests on their blood serum
showed they had antibodies
that attacked the new virus,
said Dr. Daniel Jernigan,
chief flu epidemiologist at
the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, in a
telephone news conference
earlier this year.
Until vaccines are avail-
able, the health department is
advising those with severe
symptoms to seek out the


guidance of their primary
care physician.
"They know the medical
history, whether if, say, the
person had some preexisting
conditions they might say
'Let's get you to the hospital
and get you admitted'
because .there might be more
care needed," Moran said. "If
there's any kind of difficulty
breathing, our advice would
be contact your physician
and in extreme cases don't
hesitate - call 911."
If someone has a fever
higher than 100 degrees, a
sore throat and possibly diar-
rhea and vomiting, they
should contact their doctor
and discuss whether staying'
home or seeking medical
attention is the best option,
he said.
According to the Centers


for Disease Control and
Prevention, anitviral drugs
have been somewhat suc-
cessful but, as Moran pointed
out, can only be prescribed
by a doctor.
To be most effective they
should be started within two
days after becoming sick.
When used this way, these
drugs can reduce the severity
of flu symptoms and shorten
the duration of' sickness by
one or two days, the CDC


web site said, and may also
prevent serious flu complica-
tions.
Antiviral drugs may be
especially important for
those who are very sick and
need hospitalization, or peo-
ple who are sick with the flu
and are a member of one of
the high risk groups.
To date, their have been 87
confirmed swine flu deaths in
Florida. Hamilton is the first
confirmed Highlands County


fatality.

Running Streaks take first,



second at Lake Placid


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne


NL MVP

- not an

op en and

shut case

Sure, the NFL kicked
off last weekend, but it's
really too early to gather
too much from the early
results.
All three Florida teams
took losses, but they
were all competitive
games against strong
playoff contenders, so I
wouldn't worry too much
about them.
I am bummed about
the Bears, who were
picked by Sports
Illustrated to reach the
.Super Bowl.
Jay Cutler was awful,
Brian Urlacher went
down with a dislocated
wrist - and then, in an
odd move, before team
officials had a chance to
make any statement
regarding his injury,
Urlacher himself said
that he was out for the
season.
As Chicago Tribune
columnist put it ever so
perfectly of the Bears
opening game - pffft.
But, onto more press-
ing matters, as, it does
concern a Florida athlete.
When discussing the
National League Most
Valuable Player award
for the 2009 season, the
vastly predominant lean-
ing of the pundits goes to.
St. Louis slugger Albert
Pujols.
A phenomenal hitter,
no doubt, Pujols is as
feared a hitter as there is
in the game.
His .331 average, 47
home runs (as of this
writing), 126 RBI and
119 runs scored more
than back that up.
As does the fact that
he has walked 106 times,
42 of those intentionally.
But let me submit
Marlin shortstop Hanley
Ramirez as a contender
for the, NL MVP.
Not just a contender,
but the contender - and
quite possibly THE actu-
al MVP.
As far as batting aver-
age, Pujols' is quite
strong, but then consider
Ramirez's is nearly 30
points higher.
Albert's home runs
double those of Hafiley's,
and his RBI show a near-
ly 30-point difference,
but Pujols is a first base-
man, where power num-
bers like those are
expected - his are just
more than what most first
basemen put up.
Ramirez is a shortstop
who will be near 30
home runs by season's
end and will drive in
more than 100, not exact-
ly the numbers routinely
expected from someone
at the six position.
And while Pujols runs
well for a first baseman,
Ramirez's steals numbers
just about double
Albert's.
In runs scored, Albert
has a nearly 30-run lead,
but that's when you get
into the debate about
each of their team's

Donavon White tops out over the initial hill in Tuesday's
cross country meet at Lake Placid. White would be
Sebring's first finisher, placing second overall.


Avon Park

VS.

Lake Placid
Records
Avon Park 1-1; Lake Placid 1-1
Last Week
Avon Park: Pulled off big win, topping Okeechobee 27-14, at Joe Franza
Stadium.
Lake Placid: Traveled to Celebration and won for the fifth straight time over the


Storm by a 31-0 score.
Game Notes
m Teddy Allen ran for 174 yards and
scored twice as the Devils avenged
last year's loss against the Brahmans
last week.
* Avon Park comes into the game
healthy, with no significant injuries to
report.
Coach Speak
Avon Park's Andy Bonjoklan: "Lake
Placid is a tough football team.They
look tough on4the films we've seen
and they are well coached.
We will have to play a mistake-free
football game to beat them.
We will be up for this game, and I am
excited to see what we can do against
them. We know it will be a battle.
We cannot turn the ball over and hope
to win this one."


Game Notes
* Last Friday's game only lasted
three quarters, due to lightning, but
Kirk Veley passed for 134 yards and
Caleb Jones gained 129 yards on the
ground.
* The Green Dragons have no major
injuries.
Coach Speak
Lake Placid's Jason Holden: "I feel
that we are now ready to step up and
play at the next level. Avon Park is
well coached and has some great
athletes.Teddy Allen is a smart player
that runs the ball strong so we are
going to need to get 11 hats on the
ball to be successful. We had a great
week of practice.Things started out
slow but we progressively got better
as the week went on"

LAKE PLACID -It may
not have been the way
Connor Bauer wanted to
begin the cross country sea-
son, but his Sebring team-
mates stepped up to take a
second-place finish in
Tuesday's four-team 'Dragon
Run' meet.
"I thought I took the right
turn," Bauer said. "It was the
turn I'd taken before, but
there was a gate there. By the
time I turned around the
LaBelle runner (Gabriel
Barron) had caught up to me,
so we just ran it in." '
Bauer and Barron were
apparently out in front of the
pack enough that their wrong
turn didn't misguide the rest
of the field.
"I still had fun," Bauer
said. "And the team was run-
ning well."
Well enough to finish just
less than three seconds
behind the combined scores


Sebring

VS.

Lake Region
Records
Sebring 1-1; Lake Region 0-2
Last Week
Sebring: Fell, 28-0, in home opener
against arch rival Hardee.
Lake Region: Lost at home, 33-0, to
Lakeland-Kathleen.
.Game Notes
* Sebring's offense looks to regroup
to the form that saw it rack up 85
points the first two weeks of the
season.
* Through two games, quarterback
Matt Grubb has completed 25 of 56
passes for 349 yards and two
touchdowns.
Coach Speak
Sebring assistant coach Steve
Berry: "They (Lake Region) have a
Division I college recruit at safety and
they have a lot of size on defense and
the offensive line.Their game against
Winter Haven (a 9-0 loss) will cause
you some concern, with their defense
looking pretty good.The kids have had
a real good attitude this week, but we
are missing a few with flu, viruses and
nagging injuries. We just have to get
back on a winning track"


All games have 7:30 p.m. kickoffs unless otherwise noted


Miracle League to open new field


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
The Miracle League of
Lake Placid will be holding
opening ceremonies for its
new baseball season
Saturday, Sept. 19, where it
will be presenting its brand
new field as well.
Miracle League play is for
athletes with cognitive and
physical limitations from
ages 3 through adult, serving
the credo that everyone
deserves a chance to play
ball.
Each player has a buddy
referred to as their "Angel in
the Outfield" to assist in their
play.
Everyone bats, everyone
scores and all games end in a
tie.


This year, thanks to contri-
butions and support from the
Glades Electric Community
Foundation, the City of Lake
Placid, the Highlands County
Board of County
Commissioners through
Recreation and Parks and
numerous private donors
from throughout the county,
the athletes will be playing
on a new field specifically
designed for people who use
wheelchairs and walkers for
mobility.
"We've played on the reg-
ular ball fields, and bless
these athletes, they did their
best, even after rains and the
fields were muddy," assistant
director John Varady said.
"We had a game where one of
our wheelchair players had to


be pushed through the mud
by his buddy and by the end
of the game the buddy was
just exhausted. This spring
we had a game on the new
field, and that player hit the
ball and took off without his
buddy, who now had to chase
him. That was such a neat
moment and exactly what
we've been working toward."
The ceremonies take place
at the Lake June Ball Park in
Lake Placid and begin at 9
a.m., before the Noon open-
ing, dedication, exhibition
game and lunch.
Come see these athletes in
action on their new field, and

leagueoflakeplacid.com for

league and organization.


of LaBelle's top finishers and
take second place.
Heading the Sebring
charge in Bauer's absence
was sophomore Donavon
White, who took second indi-
vidually in a time of 20:15
behind Cowboy runner Caleb
Baker's time of 19:52.
Next for the Blue Streaks
was Colton Dillon, taking
sixth in 21:30, Evan Wilburn,
eighth place in 21:34, Paul
Bohlen, 15th in 22:57,
Michael Polatty, 16th in
22:58 and Micah Olsen, 19th
in 23:31.
The host Green Dragons
had two finishers among the
top 20 as Vincente Ramos
took ninth in 21:47 and
Jordan Scott was 17th in
23:29.
Team-wise, LaBelle
totaled 33 points for its' fin-
ishes while Sebring earned
47 points, Clewiston 51 and
Lake Placid 93.
The Lady Blue Streaks
took first place among the


three-team field on the girls
side, with four Sebring run-
ners finishing in the top ten.
Caitlyn Moulds came in
ahead of the pack with a time
of 24:12 and Amanda
Kennedy got a third-place
finish in 25:20.
Coming in a little more
than a minute later, for fourth
and fifth place, respectively,
were Emily Smith (26:25)
and Taylor Tubbs (26:26).
Jayme Faircloth rounded
out the Sebring scoring runs
just outside the top ten, tak-
ing 11th in 28:31 to give the
Lady Streaks a 24-point total,
ahead of LaBelle's 32 and
Lake Placid's 72.
The Lady Dragons saw
five runners finish in an
eight-spot sequence as
Kaelyn Fort (10th in 27:40),
Blake Fort (i4th, 32:21),
Katie Tucciarone (15th,
33:56), Haley Storicks (16th,
37:29) and Kelsea Lorne
(17th, 37:37) did the Lake
Placid scoring.

over the net in Heartland Christian's 3-0 win.over vis-
iting City of life Tuesday night.


Crusaders. sweep


City of Life


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING - Seeking
their second win in a row
after topping Moore
Haven in five games
Monday, the Lady
Crusaders of Heartland
Christian (3-2) wasted lit-
tle time in doing just that,
besting the visiting Lady
Warriors in three straight
Tuesday night.
"One of the games we
lost (Monday) was a 24-
26 score," head coach
Shannon Cleveland said.
"And that's a game we
should have one. We still
have to work on finishing
games and bouncing back
after a mistake, . but
they're getting better at
it."
That was the case
Tuesday, as even with
three straight wins, City
of Life did swing the
momentum on a number
of occasions, testing the
mettle of the young
Crusader squad.
But each time, after a
Warrior run made it close
into the mid-teens,
Heartland held on for 25-
19, 25-18 and 25-17 wins.
With a somewhat com-
fortable lead in the third


game of the match,
Cleveland saw an oppor-
tunity to get some of her
younger players some
time on the court as 7th
grader Stormni Cantor and
sixth graders Lacey
Haake, Christen Pyles and
Rebecca Spencer got into
the action.
They each got some
valuable minutes and got
their arms on the ball for
"some effective digs and
passes.
But this was one of
those times that the
Warriors started to rally
and cut the youngsters
experience short for the
night.
"My philosophy is that
winning isn't the most
important thing,"
Cleveland said. "But at
the same time, I don't
want to lose a game just in
order to get everybody in.
There's a fine line in find-
ing that balance. Those
girls have been practicing
well and they got in there
and did well and it was
good experience for
them."
Heartland will continue
their gaining of experi-
ence tonight as they host
Southland.

SENIORS TiI'

'Firm Up, Soft Down'
Many seniors fail to hit their uphill putts hard enough, leaving the ball short. Or
they miss because they didn't hit it firm enough into the slope to old-the intended
line. On the other hand, they will hit their downhill putts too firmly, without any
touch, so if the putt misses, it zips well past the hole.
Here's an easy-to-remember rule for seniors having trouble on sloping greens:
"Firm up, soft down."
On uphill putts, stroke firmly enough so that the ball hits the back of the cup
lightly before dropping in. Even if you miss, since it's rolling uphill, the ball will stop
just past. On downhillers, try to make the ball drop just over the front lip without
touching the back of the hole. This way, should you miss, the ball will still stop with-
in tap-in distance. _ I

Cantu as his 'protection'
most of' tfe year, with Dan'
Uggla hitting fifth.
That duo has driven in 86
and 78 runs, respectively,
though Uggla's .244 average
and less than three RBI per
home run ratio aren't exactly
flattering..
Pujols has Matt Holliday
and Ryan Ludwick hitting
behind him, with Ludwick
having driven in 89 runs.
Holliday was a midseason
pickup, but in his 48 games
with the Cardinals in the
clean-ipp spot, has hit .363
with 48 RBI since joining
the team.
And, actually, looking at
the RBI numbers for Pujols
and Ramirez, the ratios of
RBI to home run is interest-
ing.
I just mentioned that
Uggla's RBI per home run
ratio was bad, 29 homers, 78
RBI, for 2.69 RBI per home
run.
Well,'Albert has the 47
dingers for 126 runs driven
in - that's a 2.68 rate.
Ramirez, meanwhile, has
99 runs batted in with his 23
home runs, for a ratio of 4.3
RBI per home run.
The last statistical catego-
ry of note, is in the field,


where it is summarily
accepted that first base is an
easier position to field than
shortstop.
Sure, the first baseman
has plenty of throws coming
his way, and they aren't all
good - but the vast majority
of throws that get away from
a first baseman are ruled as
an error on the fielder mak-'
ing the throw.
Well, Pujols has 11 errors
on the season, while over at
short, Ramirez has nine.
1 ow, we all know that
MVP voting, for the most
part, is based on statistics.
And if that were the one
and only. determining factor,
it would be a very close race
between the two principals.
Both players being on
contending teams obviously
helps, and then there's
always the 'where would
their teams be without
them?' consideration.
As I mentioned in a recent
column, that the Marlins are
competing for a playoff spot
is surprising, in that, other
than Ramirez and Josh
Johnson, there really aren't
any Florida players who are
having fantastic season's,
nor too-many that many out-
side the Miami area have
much heard of.
The Cardinals are the
pride of the NL Central


which, in this 2009 season,
isn't saying much.
They have two top-notch
starting pitchers in Chris
Carpenter and Adam
Wainwright - who actually,
as a duo, have better overall
stats than the much talked
about San Francisco two-
some of Tim Lincecum and
Matt Cain.
That Matt Holliday has
caught fire since his acquisi-
tion- has been a key factor in
St. Louis turning what- was: a
pretty close race, as recently
as mid-August, into pretty
much a laugher now.
So while, of course, the
Cardinals would be nowhere
-near as good as they are now
without Pujols, they do have
a pretty good team regard-
less.
The Marlins are a pretty
good team now, with
Ramirez - without him, they
aren't even an afterthought
in the playoff race.
It is a much closer contest,
this year's MVP award, than
most of those experts real-
ize.
Or at least it should be.

A different Lady Devil squad

falls to Fort Meade


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.comr
AVON PARK - The Lady
Devils were out-served by
Ft. Meade on Thursday night
in Avon Park 25-15, 13-25,
25-16, 25-20.
"We struggled with our
serves," said Red Devil Head
Coach Stephanie Devlin.
"We played a great game last
week against McKeel, and I
thought we had improved a
lot. But tonight we were not
the same team. We stopped
talking, we were not serving
the ball. I felt like I was in
the twilight zone."
Outside hitter Cheyenne
Mills and libero Mariah
Hodge were both out of the
game due to illness, subtract-
ing from the overall talent
that could be put on the
court.
"With the girls out, I had
no substitutions that I could
make. But we still struggled
with just basic communica-
tions," Devlin said after the
-game. "They found a hole n
our defense and kept putting
it in there. We rallied some,
but just could not get it right.
This did not look like the
same -team as we had last


week."
The Lady Devils rallied to
win the second game after a
25-15 defeat, and it looked
like things were going well
as Avon Park took the lead
early in the third set, picking
up four aces and two kills in
the first few minutes of play.
But then the serve changed
on a Red Devil mistake, and
the play went downhill from
there.
Minute- long rallies
seemed to always come up
short on the Avon park side,
giving Ft. Meade the oppor-
tunity to pull ahead and
quickly put the game away as
the Lady Devils stalled at 16
points.
It was all Ft Meade until
the last minutes of the fourth
and final game when Avon
park rallied back from 20-13
to pick up seven points and
then held Ft. Meade at match
point for three more before
falling beneath the serve
returns.
Avon Park travels up the
road to play against Sebring
tonight in an unusual Friday
match-up.
The JV plays at 6 p.m. and
the varsity starts at 7:30 p.m.

* In America, most food service work '

that your server usually has to share
that tip with other kitchen and dining

* Exceptional service, accommodation
for special requests and an exception-
