AVON PARK -
According to Mike Morrison,
a spokesman for the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement, a woman is
dead and a man injured after
a shooting involving two
Florida Highway Patrol
troopers in Avon Park just
after 11 p.m. Monday.
Robert Swank, 37, of

Troopers . Kenneth
Jorgensen and John Paikai
attempted to stop a vehicle
driven by Swank after he


failed to stop at a traffic light
at U.S. 27 and College Drive.
Swank sped away to the
RaceTrac gas station at 1625
U.S. 27 North, where he
crashed into a "fixed object."
Swank continued driving
north on U.S. 27 to the Hess
station north of town, where
he finally stopped, Morrison
said.
As Jorgensen and Paikai
approached the vehicle,
Swank stepped on the gas
and struck Paikai with the
vehicle, Morrison said.
The troopers shot at the
pair after the man used his
vehicle to strike a trooper,
according to the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement.

By TREY CHRISTY

SEBRING - A shooter
remains at large after firing
at least two shots at a man
outside of the Washington
Heights Grocery Store.
Sebring Police officers
were dispatched to the
store, located at 755 Lemon
Ave., just after 1:30 p.m.
Saturday.
Officer Raymond Wilson
walked into the store to find
the victim holding a bloody
towel against the left side of
his abdomen.
According to Wilson's
report, the victim appeared
to be in a great deal of pain
but was talking, sitting in a
chair and seemed to be
alert.
The store manager said
he remembered seeing the
victim standing against the
fence on the west side of
the entrance just outside the

SPD Commander Steve
Carr said while he didn't
have a medical term for the
current status of the victim,
officers were able to speak
with him on Monday.
Officers are looking for
at least one suspect, Carr
said, but no warrant has
been issued.by late Tuesday
morning.
He wasn't sure what the

SEBRING - This year's
five finalists for the Clifton
M. Kelly Champion for
Children Award come from
all over the county. Two
have been so honored
before.
The award will be pre-
sented Thursday night.
One of the finalists,
Bernie Golde, who volun-
teers at the Heartland
Christian School, put into
words what is so important
about the award and cele-
bration.
. "My main thought is if
anyone else starts to think
about children, maybe peo-
ple who haven't given
much thought about chil-
dren and the care of chil-
dren, then (Champions for
Children) has done some-
thing positive."

Balloon Festival

LAKE PLACID -
Students from Lake Country
Elementary School got a spe-
cial visit from John
Thompson on Tuesday, and
Thompson brought a super-
sized visual aid with him.
The hot air balloon he
brought with him contained
69,000 square feet of air, or
the equivalent of 69,000 bas-
ketballs, explained the cur-
rent Florida State Hot Air
Balloon Champion.
Thompson was surrounded
by students all ooh-ing and
ahh-ing as a gas-powered fan
first filled the once-lifeless
balloon with cool air.
Once full, Thompson shot
propane-fueled flames up
into the balloon, causing it to
quickly rise and take shape.
He gave the school's phys-
ical education coach Donna


Nitz a quick ride, and then
brought the balloon down for
students to get a closer look.
Though he made it look
easy, the balloon rose and fell
as the air cooled down and
had to be refilled by a few
more shots from the burner.
Students walked around
the basket, their eys lit up as
they looked up in ' the bal-
loon, nearly 100 feet of
seemingly empty space trap-
ping the hot air that was peri-
odically shot up into the
void.
Though it appeared very
large, the balloon students
saw Tuesday can only carry
two average-sized people.
The smaller size makes it
easier to fill in a small space
like the field next to the
school, so it makes a great
demonstration tool,

For decades Golde and

Golde said, "when they

The Goldes are from

"We haven't lived our

They work as a team,

Officials and occupants wait outside 935 S. Delaney for the Avon Park fire department to
conduct their final sweep after the fire that happened early Tuesday morning.


APFD has busy night


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
' AVON PARK - Avon Park's Fire
Department was kept busy Monday night
fighting two different non-injury fires.
At 1 a.m., smoke was reported coming out
of Taqueria Merlo on Main Street by an Avon
Park police officer.
No injuries were reported.
According to Interim Fire Chief Steve
Marquart, the fire looks to have originated in
a hamper full of towels which were used with
cleaning fluids in a closet.
"The structural damage was not signifi-
cant," Marquart said.
But, according to owner Enrique, damage
to the electrical systems may have been
extensive.
"We were lucky. The police and fire depart-
ment responded quickly. It could have been
much worse. The fire damaged the electrical
panel, and we have to get an electrician in


here to repair that. Until then, we will be
closed," Merlo said.
At 5:10 a.m., the department responded to
a second structure fire call.
Dispatched to 935 S. Delaney Ave., a sec-
ond-floor apartment was fully involved,
according to Marquart, but no injuries were,
reported.
The fire was in a front' apartment of the
building located just a few feet from Hal
McRae Boulevard and just above Teresa's
Place, a clothing retail store which occupies
the main floor of the building.
According to Marquart, the fire started in
the small living room just above the street,
and the damage to the apartment was exten-
sive.
Teresa's Place and the other four apart-
ments suffered minor smoke damage.
The cause of the second fire is still under
investigation by the State Fire Marshall.

School grades


a failing idea


Here is a sen-
tence from a
PowerPoint
presentation
explaining one of
the many fine
points in the new
high school grading
system proposed by
the state:
"Depending on their score
on AP, IB and/or AICE*, stu-
dents .will receive weight in
the formula based on the
number of post-secondary
courses for which the student
earns credit as determined by
the Articulation Coordinating
Committee's Credit-by-Exam
Equivalencies List."
Reading that, we do not
know whether to laugh or cry.
One thing, .however, is for
sure - nothing good can
come out- of a system that
contains groups like an-
Articulation Coordinating
Committee, or things called
Cr.edit-by Exam
Equivalencies Lists.
Right off .the bat we are
awash in jargon, meant to
sound scientific and pro-
found, but actually mumbo-
jumbo.
Right off the bat the rules
are too complicated, and
attention focused on student
results rather than on the stu-
dents themselves. It is like a
biologist drawing conclu-
sions about flamingos by
studying only .their tracks.
.Worse, the truth is Florida
currently requires only a.

10th-grade level of compe-
tence for a student to be con-
sidered a successful 12th-
grader, so any talk of bring-
ing improvement through a
new school grading system is
really nothing but feel-good
fluffery, as nonsensical as the
Byzantine formulas being
introduced.
Education has always
been, and will always be,
about the exchange of infor-
mation and mastery of skills.
It can only happen one per-
son at a time, because every
student must experience the
epiphany of understanding
individually.
Our problems in the past
did not come about because
we didn't know how to meas-
ure student progress, they
came about because we took
education for granted and
didn'tpay attention.
Well, we are beginning to
pay attention. We are are at least
talking about how important
parents are to the process,
how truancy is a serious
problem, how teachers need
to be trained and supported.
We do not see how making
a grading process so compli-
cated a person will have to be
hired simply to keep track of
all the data involved, is going
to do any good or make any
difference.
We need to stay practical
and hands on - investing
wisely and making it clear to
our children what we expect
from them.
Raising the level of
instruction and setting stiffer
requirements are the best

Credit belongs to
those in the arena
Editor:
In response to S. Burr's
criticism of Lake Placid
Coach Holden I have some
reflections. Having spent a
"few" years walking the
sideline I feel qualified to do
so. Mr. Burr (or Mrs.?) you
did not cite your football
coaching credentials nor did
you mention whether.you
paid the $5 ticket price?
I do not know what your
profession and experience
background consists of but I
would never tell an electri-
cian how to wire, since I
have no experience or back-
ground as an electrician. As
long as you bought a ticket,
as a coach, I felt you paid to
criticize me and in doing so
supported my program so
that was OK with me.
Over my football career I
personally disagreed with
many of my opporient coach-
es philosophy or strategy but
my mentor taught me never
to criticize because there
was "thinking behind" what
the other guy was doing. To
quote partially from the 26th
President of the United
States (T. Roosevelt), "it is
not the critic who counts,
not the man who points out
how the strong man stumbles
or where the doer of the
deeds could have done them
better. The credit belongs to
the man who is actually in
the arena ....."
Perhaps you Mr. Burr
(Mrs.?) should research the
quote by President Teddy
Roosevelt and take it in con-
sideration the next time you
decide to criticize Coach
Holden, unless, of course,
you paid the admission
price?

Military Training
Center shows need
for amendment
Editor:
The perfect example of
why we need the Hometown
Democracy Amendment is a
proposal to sacrifice 7,660
acres of Highlands County
land on the altar of develop-
ment, named, "Eagle
National Security Training
Center." If Amendment No.
4 were now in place, this
horrendous proposal would
be required to go to referen-
dum; at which time the peo-
ple would make a decision,
not county bureaucrats who's
vision is always controlled
by promises of jobs and
extra tax revenue.
In all the years of watch-
ing county commissioners in
action, rarely would I see the
board of county commission-
ers "take on" a developer to
ensure that our natural
resources were to be protect-
ed and/or conserved. Rules
would be bent in order to

Case in point: The commis-
sioners created a whole new
zoning district so that the
training center could pro-

Because of the excellent
coverage by local newspa-

general knows. what is pro-

7,660 acres in Venus. Every
day opposition to the estab-

Did you know?
Editor:
Did you know that none of
our representatives in
Washington wrote or read
the stimulus bill? It was
written by Apollo Alliance.
Did you know that one of
the heads (Jeff Jones) of the
Apollo Alliance was one of
the founders of the Weather
Underground, along with
Bill Ayers, who tried to blow
up the Pentegon? Did you
know that members of the
Labor Unions (SEIU) are
part of Apollo?
Did you know that Van
Jones, the czar that just


resigned is a self-proclaimed
Communist,and Radical?
Did you know that Cass
Sunstein, another czar,
thinks that animals should
have the right to sue? He
wants to regulate the
Internet. Does this regulate
free speech? Oh yeah and he
loves Chaves. And he too is
a Radical.
Did 'you know that teach-
ers union gave money to
Acorn? Did you know that
the stimulus package fun-
neled a lot of money to
Acorn? You know who
Acorn is right. The ones that
are helping a pimp and a
prostitute avoid taxes and
get a low interest loan for a
house so they can bring in
underage illegals to be pros-
titutes in this house they
want to buy. This has hap-
pened in Baltimore, New
York, Washington D.C. and
California. This is also the
group that registered Mickey
Mouse to vote last time. I
think the Post Office should
do the census. These people
visit all the houses every day
and the Post Office could
use the money right now.
I believe our government
is corrupt. Republicans and
Democrats alike. They
should not pass any more
bills until they start policing
themselves. Democrats clean
up the Democrats and
Republicans clean up the
Republicans. Get rid of spe-
cial interests and get the
union people out of politics.
The president said in one
of his speeches to see whp
he surrounds himself with
and you will know his poli-
cies. Well, so far I have seen
Communists, Radicals, asso-
ciations that try to defraud
the government and corrupt
politicians. What are his
policies?

SFCC spikes in final donation for bleachers


Special to the News-Sun
* AVON PARK - South
,Florida Community College,
;Lady Panthers Volleyball
,team united to spike the final
Donation over the fundraising
'net for Spbcial STARS in its
'effort to collect money for
new bleachers.
Special athlete Mike
Eldred, of Avon Park, went to
Sthe college recently to collect
the team's $200 donation.
There are 12 women on the
!team and they. each con-
tributed to help raise $100
'with the final $100 being
,matched by their coach Kim
Crawford.
The SFCC Volleyball team
:has developed a special rela-
:tionship with people with
disabilities especially those
Served by Ridge Area Arc
"and Special STARS. The
bleachers will be placed near
thetrack and an outdoor vol-
Sleyball net where the college
:team plays with the special
;athletes.
"My team has gone the
past two years to play volley-
ball with the clients at Ridge
Area Arc and it has always
been a very rewarding expe-
: rience for them. Being able to
help was the least we could
do for what it is that Special
STARS does for so many oth-
;ers. Also, to know how nice it
;is to have the support from
:our community and fans and
.we wanted to give back,"
:Crawford said.
In return, the special ath-
:letes will support SFCC vol-
jleyball by attending one of
: their home games,
: "We will come in full force
:with bright orange SFCC
:Volleyball spirit T-shirts,
'shakers and loud voices to
'cheer them on to victory. We

River State College."
Crawford also returned the
favor by saying her team will
show their support for the
special athletes during the
grand opening of the bleach-
ers. "We will be at the open-
ing ceremony to cheer every-
one on.".
The bleachers have been
ordered from Delaney Fence
Company in Lake Placid and
will arrive in time for the
Special STARS Track and
Field Games at 9 a.m.
Saturday, Oct. 24 at the track
next to Ridge Area Arc on
College Drive in Avon Park.
Delaney Fence Company is
donating the delivery and set
up of the bleachers.
SFCQ Volleyball team will
join the law enforcement in
carrying in the torch to the
special athlete representa-
tives to kick off the opening
ceremony for the competi-
tion. Everyone who made a
donation toward the bleach-
ers will be recognized that
day.


Eldred was chosen to col-
lect the final donation from
the volleyball team because
he himself walked the streets
of Avon Park for a month col-
lecting donations. He brought
in donations ranging from $1
to $200 for a total of $932.
The campaign kicked off on
Aug. 1 and Eldred was
impressed with the results.
"I believe it went OK. I
didn't think we could raise
that much money in that
amount of time," Eldred said.
Several people chose to
honor a loved one either
through a memorial or tribute
on the bleachers. A plate will
be placed on the seats listing
those being honored. There
will also be a plate listing
other donors.
The campaign goal was
$4,000 and the final checks
have come in to push it over
the edge at approximately
$4,600. The bleachers actual-
ly cost $5,500 but Special
STARS was only going to
raise $4,000 in the communi-


ty and use the remaining por-
tion from its general fund to
cover the rest.
"I can't thank the commu-
nity enough for showing sup-
port for our special athletes,"
Marshall said. "This cam-
paign goes to show that every
dollar does make a difference
- no matter if it is $1 or $200.
We even had people collect
spare change that added up to
several dollars."
Marshall, the Special
STARS Advisory Board,
families ana all the special
athletes demonstrated true
dedication in making this
fundraising project happen. It
was a team effort with the
help of the community.-
Although the campaign is
over, individuals can still
make a donation to be recog-
nized on the bleachers.
Contact Marshall at 452-
6607 or mail a check to
Special STARS, 120 W.
College Drive, Avon Park,
FL 33825.

Bernie and Irene Golde read for a pre-school class at Heartland Christian
School where, both volunteer. Irene Golde retired as director of the pre-
school program in 2004, after 21 years. She and Bernie are still there
every day, Irene running the program and Bernie fixing, adjusting and cre-
ating whatever is needed. For example, Monday, he was servicing the
school bus so Irene could drive it later in the day.

Champion for Children

award finalists all deserving


Continued from page 1A
School's pre-school program, only
now she does it as a volunteer - hav-
ing retired from that position in 2004.
"We would be lost without them,"
said Dave Kasner, the school's head-
master. "They are real heroes. I can't
imagine what I would have done
without them these last two years."
Awards are nice, the Goldes said,
but what pleases them most is meet-
ing and working with the children
and grandchildren of their former stu-
dents.

Joe Colangelo knows just how that
is. "I love to hear 'Hi, Mr. C,"' he
said. "A lot of boys around here were
my scouts. It always makes you
proud to meet them as grown men."
He enjoys working with their sons
and grandsons, too.
Scouting is about having fun, he
said, but even more it is about learn-
ing skills, developing self reliance
and becoming a good citizen.
Originally from New Jersey,
Colangelo, a cabinet maker by trade,
has been a Boy Scout leader and vol-
unteer since before moving his fami-
ly here in 1979.
"The first 30 years were the hard
part, now I know what I'm doing,"
Colangelo said.
He devoted so much of his time to
the program his wife of 46 years,
Lucille, has spent her some of her
vacations on his scout camping trips.
He has taught everything from
fishing to outdoor cooking to wood
carving. He mentors boys working
toward their Eagle Scout rating and
sits on a review board.
"Once you get into it, it's really
enjoyable. Thirty years went fast," he
said.
He has had two strokes and a cere-
bral hemorrhage but they only slowed
him a little. "Now I'm an assistant
leader," he said grinning. "I didn't
have a choice, when I talked to my
wife about taking on a' troop again
(after finally recovering) she said,
'Do you hear that? It's the sound of
divorce papers rustling.'"

Troy White is another individual
who's hooked on helping young peo-
ple.
For 37 years, he taught social stud-
ies at Lake Placid High School,
admired by his students for his cheer-
ful disposition as much as for what he
taught. Then, when he retired, he
.found himself restless, even though
he was very active with a non-
denominational Christian group help-
ing build missions, clinics, orphan-
ages and schools in the Dominican
Republic and Russia.
Lake Placid Christian School was
looking for a social studies teacher
this year, just at the time White
decided he had to find a classroom.
Now he teaches sixth through eighth
grades.
"I've known Mr. White for 37
years, and we're tickled to have him"


said Dennis Griffin, the headmaster
at Lake Placid Christian School and a
Champion for Children finalist him-
self a few years ago.
"He's just a fine Christian man
who truly loves kids," Griffin said.
"He's excited about being able to
teach the Bible."
White is' the only nominee to have
met Judge Clifton M. Kelly, the man
for whom the Champion for Children
Award is named. He used to take his
classes into Kelly's courtroom to wit-
ness trials.
"He was a compassionate man,"
White said, "especially with chil-
dren."

Saundra Bass is being recognized
the second time for her years of work
as a child advocate and school board
parent mentor.
As a parent mentor, Bass provides
information and guidance to families
with children who have special
needs. "The goal is to get parents
accurate information so they can
make good decisions," she said.
This includes seeing them through
the maze of federal and state assis-
tance programs as well as helping
choosing educational options.
"You're dealing with a lot of emo-
tional issues," said Bass, who knows
first hand as the mother of a special
needs child herself.
She said a team of professionals
work with each child but that, "the
parent plays the most important part.
The parent should be the team
leader."
Bass also is chairperson of the
board for the Miracle League. The
baseball league is designed for lovers
of the game regardless of their age
and who deal with handicaps. It has
an eight-game season and everyone
gets to play, many with help from
"angels in the outfield."'

When Gwen Sanders Hill, for
whom Hill-Gustat Middle School is
named, and Shirley Furr, herself a
former Champion for Children, got
together to found the Avon Park
Community Child Developmental
Center, they knew they had to find
someone special to take their dream
to the next step.
Second-time finalist, Velma
Lumpkin, then a para-professional at
Avon Elementary School, had already
caught the attention of school admin-
istrators and they quickly decided she
was the person for the job.
Lumpkin wasn't immediately
intrigued.
Pat Landress, Furr's daughter, said
she spent a whole day talking
Lumpkin into leaving a secure job
with the school board to direct the
new pre-school.
"She never looked back," said
Landress recently. "She went on to
earn a master's degree and the center
is the only accredited preschool in
Highlands County. Velma is the rea-
son. I've told her she can't retire."

life-threatening gunshot wound.
- The relationship between Swank
and Gregory, their ages and addresses
were not released.
What caused the pursuit is unclear.
Swank has a long arrest record with
the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office dating back to 2002. He has
been booked into the county jail nine
times before this latest arrest for
charges ranging from driving without


a license, battery, possession of drug
paraphernalia, theft and dealing in
stolen property.
His last arrest was on July 18,
when he was booked for petit theft.
Paikai was treated for his injuries
and sent home to recover, Morrison
said.
FDLE is investigating the shoot-
ing.
FHP spokesman Chris Miller
declined to comment on the shooting.

Man jailed

after chase

in Sebring
Continued from page 1A
vehicles and attempted to
flee, the report stated.
Scanner traffic indicat-
ed that Johnson ran at
least one stop sign in the
downtown Sebring area,
and eventually was
unable to be seen by those
pursuing after he reached
speeds estimated by pur-
suers at 70 mph.
He eventually crashed
the car in the front yard of c
310 Mat-Lo Avenue and
fled on foot, the arrest
report stated.
Officers from the
Sebring Police
Department were called in
to assist the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office
by putting up a perimeter
around the neighborhood,
which borders Lake
Jackson and the Sebring
Parkway.
As the seconds ticked
by, deputies were heard
organizing the chase,
bringing out K-9s to track
and working with central
dispatch to relay informa-
tion from residents who
called in Johnson's loca-
tion as a suspicious per-
son.
As the search advanced
from seconds to a minute,
deputies discovered
Johnson apparently took
the keys to the 'vehicle
and they warned that he
might double back to get
the car. They also men-
tioned he had a cell phone
and might be looking for.,
a ride.
Within two or three
minutes of Johnson ditch-
ing the car, deputies dis-
covered him in a back
yard a few blocks north of "
Mat-Lo Avenue.
He was taken into cus-
tody without any reported
struggle.
The box of cannabis
was located in the trunk
of his car, the arrest report
stated.
Later, - executing a
search warrant on
Johnson's home, deputies
allegedly found $14,000
in cash inside a safe and "
10 rounds of 9-millimeter
ammunition.
Johnson is on probation
for possession of cannabis
with intent to sell, for
which he was sentenced
on Jan. 22.
This makes him a felon,
which resulted in a charge
of possession of ammuni-
tion by a convicted felon. *
He was also charged
with one count of traffick-
ing in marijuana, a first-
degree felony.
Johnson remains in the
Highlands County Jail on
$150,000 bond.

Jerquaid Quinn and the Green Dragons dominated the pool Saturday, winning both
the boys and girls side of the Blackman Invitational Relays at Sebring.

Blackman Relays


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
The list was long as
Lake Placid head swim
coach Tom Creel read off
the personal best times set
by his swimmers at
Saturday's 11-team
Blackman Invitational
Relay meet at the Sebring
High School Pool.
Small wonder, then, that
the Green Dragons swam
their way to wins on both
the boys and girls side of
the meet.
"We had seven first-
place finishes, five sec-
onds, five thirds and at
least two in each of fourth-
through eighth-place,"
Creel said. "We showed
what team is about.
Everybody doing their
best, giving it their all and
getting points for the
team."
That effort, along with
sheer numbers, earned
Lake Placid 506 points for
the girls, ahead of George
Jenkins' 488 and Sebring's
435, and 592 points for the
boys, with George Jenkins
gaining 424, Lake Region
348 and Sebring 321.
"We have 15 returning
swimmers and 22 new
swimmers that had never
been in the pool before this
season," Creel said. "So
the focus hasn't been so
mpch on winning, but on
working hard with them on
their form, the basics. And
in this short period of time
they've really put in the
work and effort and we're
seeing the improvement."
Going through the
results, Lake Placid saw its
first win in the Boys 400


'We showed

what team is

about.'

TOM CREEL
Lake Placid head coach

Medley Relay, with Dylan
Weber-Callahan, Jerquaid'
Quinn, Kevin Smit and
Robert Greene winning
with a time of 4:19.95.
The next came in the
Mixed 200 Back as
Michaella Campbell,
Thalia Espinoza, Caleb
McCollough and Ian
Munro won in 2:33.84, and
the Boys 400 Free with
Smit, Weber-Callahan,
Greene and Edwin
Velazquez posting a time
of 3:56.18.
The Lady Dragons
earned their first outright
win in the 200 Free with
Shannon Cummings,
Camille Renzoni, Rachel
Cope and Tammi Beach
*finishing in 1:57.05.
The boys were back at it
in the 200 Free with the
combo of Smit, Weber-
Callahan, Green and
Velazquez continuing their
freestyle prowess in
1:39.82.
In the Boys 200 Medley,
it was just a matter of trad-
ing out Velazquez for
Quinn and another win was
in the books with a time of
1:55.82.
The winning ways were
rounded out by the Girls
200 Breast foursome of
Beach, Cummings, Cope
and Taylor Lightse) who
finished more than 30 sec-
onds over their closest


competition in 2:34.28.
The host Blue Streaks,
while not gaining any first-
place finishes, found their
way to some seconds as
Teaona Coker, A. Munoz,
George Dumont and
Jessica Todd swam a
2:37.45 in the Mixed 200
Back; Michael Bickman,
Olivia Hitt, Jessica Todd
and Quinten Negron took
second in the Mixed 200
Fly with a time of 2:22.92
and Dumont, Brian Miller,
Kara Burger and Brian
Ortiz swam a 2:05.01 for
second in the Mixed 200
Medley.
But the day was for the
Dragons with their own
host of second-place fin-
ishes backing up their slew
of firsts.
Velazquez, Derek Tellez,
Patrick Kimrey and Kyle
Jenkins took second in the
Boys 200 Fly in 2:10.60,
Colby Royce, Tess Lundy,
Michaella Campbell and
Deta Waller did the same
with a 2:45.42 finish in the
Girls 200 Back and Kyle
LeBlanc, Caleb
McCollough, Derek Tellez
and Matthew Padovano
swam a 2:14.94 in the
Boys 200 Back.
A very close second was
had by Beach, Cope,
Royce and Cummings in
the Girls 200 Medley, as
their time of 2:15.81 was
just under one second off
the winning time of
2:14.82.
The final second-place
finish for Lake Placid was
Turned in by Taylor
Allcorn, Tellez, Jenkins

The Lady Green Dragons had something to cheer about over the weekend as they took first
place in the Silver Division of Saturday's tournament at Bartow.


Silver Division win in Bartow


for Lady Green Dragons


BY DAN HOEHNE
daniel hoehne@newssun.com
A last-minute replacement
to fill out the field, the Lake
Placid volleyball team won
three out of four matches to
claim the Silver Division
championship at Saturday's
tournament in Bartow.
After cruising to a two-set
win, in the three-set format,
over All Saints, the Lady
Dragons squared off against a
strong Okeechobee squad and
split the first two sets, 20-25
and 25-21, before finally suc-
cumbing to the Lady
Brahmans in the tie-breaker,
6-15.
Now in the Silver Division,
the girls in green went three
sets against Victory Christmn.
winning the opener 25-14
behind Sierra Weaver's four


aces and three kills, and
falling in the second set 22-
25, even with Brittany
Collison's 10 digs.
The Dragons kept their
hopes alive with a 15-11,
third-set win to move along in
the day-long event.
Perhaps a little flat with
three matches already under
their belts, the first set in the
title match against Winter
Haven was a dud, as the 12-25
score might indicate.
"We just didn't come into
that game ready to play,"
Wac er said. "But we just got
tiieither and told ourselves to
Ih ii.g up the eniiergy."
The cnisuing energy boost
was apparent with a 25-11 win
in the second set.
"Our serves were great,"


Jones said. "Sierra had four
aces, Kayla (Summerfield)
had an ace and Marissa
Baldwin had an ace, two kills
and a block."
The good serving continued
in the clincher, with
Summerfield and Anlana
Neilander each accounting for
three aces in the 15-10 win.
"There were some very
good g.imnl." Jones said. "The
teams we played were no
slouches. It was good to have
those types of games and see
the girls work together to get
the wins."
The team was back in dis-
trict action Tuesday night,
with a home date againilt
Mulberry, before heading ito
Fort Meade Thursday to con
tinue the district schedule

Vitreous floaters a common eye ailment


Hardly a day goes by that a patient
,walks into our office complaining of a
"cobweb" in their vision. Some patients
will describe the.image as a "tadpole" or
"bug" moving in their line of sight.
These- images seem to change position
with eye or head movement. The lay-
man's term for this condition is floaters,
specifically, vitreous floaters.
Upon dilated examination, the eye
doctor will observe one or more light
gray to dark black opacities floating
within the vitreous gel. This gel makes
up about 80 percent of the globe. It is
the largest structure within the eye. With
age, the vitreous thins and may separate
from the back of the eye. This is called
a posterior vitreous detachment, or
PVD. This is quite common and usually
harmless.
Floaters are caused by tiny bits of vit-
* reous gel or cells that cast shadows on
the retina. The opacities may take on
many different shapes, as mentioned
above and will float within the vitreous
as the eye moves. The doctor will also
look for pigment floating within the vit-
reous, retinal tears or detachments, vit-
reous hemorrhaging, or retinal hemor-
rhaging. The presence of pigment float-
ing within the vitreous or a vitreous

hemorrhage carries a
high probability that
the patient also has a
retinal tear.
Light flashes are
sometimes a com-
plaint resulting from
floaters. They are
usually considered to
Focal be a result of traction
between the vitreous
Point gel and the inner lin-
Valerie Moulds', ing of the eye, known
as the retina. The vit-
reous gel tugs on the retina with eye
movement which is why patients com-
plain more of flashes of light when they
move their eyes. The incidence of flash-
ing lights increases with age as the vit-
reous gel continues to liquefy, becoming
more mobile. Flashes of light may signi-
fy a higher risk of retinal tears.
This is not to be confused with the
zig-zag pattern of flashing lights associ-
ated with migraine headaches. These
type of flashing lights usually last about
20 minutes and are sometimes multicol-
ored. A headache may or may not fol-
low. No vitreous or retinal problems are
associated with these types of flashing
lights.

As aggravating as they may initially
seem, no treatment is recommended for
floaters. Most vitreous floaters will
seem to become smaller or collapse on
themselves over time. Gravity also acts
to pull larger floaters down out of the
line of sight of the patient, but this may
take time. The brain will learn to sup-
press the image over time, to the point'
that the patient is not aware of the
floater at all.
If a retinal tear is found, the patient is
referred to a retinal specialist for treat-
ment. The retinal doctor may recom-
mend laser or cryotherapy within 24 to
72 hours to avoid the development of a
retinal detachment.
The majority of patients who have a
retinal detachment are aware of a persis-
tant curtain or shadow somewhere in
their.visual field. If this occurs, they are
to return to their eye doctor immediately
for further evaluation.

metric physician practicing in Sebring and

tics and therapeutics. She is a member of
the American Optometric Association,

Take steps to

prevent peripheral

arterial disease


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Although
commonly associated with
the heart and brain,
artherosclerosis can affect a
body right down to its toes.
Peripheral arterial disease,
or PAD, occurs when blood
vessels in the legs are nar-
rowed or blocked by fatty
deposits decreasing the flow
of oxygen.
"According to the
National Institutes of
Health, one in every 20
Americans older than 50 has
PAD. If left untreated, it can
lead to lower limb amputa-
tion and death," said Katy
Rowland, Chief Clinical
Officer for National Healing
Corporation whose nation-
wide Wound Healing
Centers treat chronic
wounds with underlying
conditions of the disease as
well as perform tests for
PAD and counsel patients on
how to manage the illness.
People with PAD are also
at increased risk of heart
attack and stroke and are six
times more likely to die
within 10 years than those
without the disease. The fact
that the majority of patients
with PAD show no symp-
toms in part led the U.S.
Senate to declare September
as Peripheral Arterial
Disease Awareness Month in
2007.
There are many noninva-
sive tests to detect PAD.
Treatments include making
lifestyle changes to reduce
risk, taking medication to
reduce blood pressure or
thin the blood, physical ther-
apy, improved foot care,
advanced therapies such as
hyperbaric oxygen therapy
and in extreme cases, sur-
gery.
The local experts at
Highlands Regional Wound
Center, a National Healing
Corporation Wound Healing
Center, outline common risk
factors:
* Slightly more men
than women have the dis-
ease and, according to the
American Heart
Association, African-
Americans have higher inci-
dences than other ethnic
groups as do people with a
family history of hyperten-
sion or atherosclerosis.


* Since the disease
develops gradually, a much
higher incidence is seen in
elderly patients.
* The most common
symptoms are pain or
cramping in one or both legs
(often the calf) that occurs
with exercise and subsides
with rest as well as foot pain
that strikes when a patient is
lying down in the face up
position. ., .:
* Other signs and symp-
toms are chronic toe and
foot sores, numbness in the
extremities, weakness and
atrophy of the calf muscle, a
feeling of coldness in the
legs or feet, feet which turn
pale when elevated or dusky
red in the dependent posi-
tion and hair loss on the top
of the foot.
* The American College
of Physicians states that not
smoking or quitting is the
most important behavior to
prevent PAD or slow it
down. According to ,the
Peripheral Arterial Disease
Coalition,, smoking even
half a pack of cigarettes per
day may increase the risk of
having PAD by 30 to 50 per-
cent.
* High blood levels of
LDL cholesterol and triglyc-
erides and low blood-levels
of HDL cholesterol are com-
mon risk factors. Lifestyle
changes for controlling cho-
lesterol levels include: eat-
ing less saturated fats and
cutting back on foods high
in cholesterol, increasing
fiber in the diet, being more
physically active and losing
weight.
* People with diabetes
are two to four times at
greater risk for PAD than the
general population and it is
important for those with
PAD to regulate blood glu-
cose, blood pressure and
cholesterol levels. The
American Diabetes
Association recommends
that people who have dia-
betes and are over the age of
50 be tested.
For more information on
managing PAD and treating'
chronic or infected wounds,
contact Highlands Regional
Wound and Hyperbaric
Center located at 7200
.South George Blvd. in
Sebring, or call 382-2032.


Did You Know?
According to a University of Cincinnati study,
exposure to boiling water caused polycarbonate
'drinking bottles to release bisphenol A (BPA) up to
55 times more rapidly than exposure to cool or
temperate water. While BPA has been proven to
cause genetic damage in lab animals, it is not clear
if the levels of BPA, which are government
regulated, in polycarbonate bottles and other bottles
pose a threat to humans. Still, in light of the study,
lead researcher Scott M. Belcher, PhD, recommends
proceeding with caution. That's especially important
as the country shifts toward a more environmentally
conscious frame of mind. Reusable, plastic
polycarbonate drinking bottles have grown in
popularity as the country moves away from
disposable plastic bottles. Baby bottles, for example,
are made with polycarbonate plastic, emphasizing
the need for consumers to proceed with caution
when it comes to this controversial material. Many
bottle manufacturers are now offering BPA-free
bottles. Itmay be worth tossing old bottles.

Golden Corral prepares for


Military Appreciation Night


By MARY MARGARET STAIK
Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - According to Mark
Tharp, owner of the Golden Corral, the
Annual Military Appreciation Night is
planned for 5-9 p.m. Monday, Nov. 16 and all
Highlands County veterans and active duty
military personnel are invited to dine at the
restaurant at no charge.
Dolly Mercer, Golden Corral marketing
director, sent out a reminder to the Florida
Chapters of Disabled American Veterans to


remind each commander of the yearly event
held at the local Golden Corral Restaurants.
"In 2008, Golden Corral provided a free
'thank you' buffet meal and beverage to over
325,000 veterans and active duty military
personnel." Mercer said, "With the DAV's
representatives on-site, over $736,000 were
raised for the DAV state and local chapters."
According to figures compiled by Mercer,
the Golden Corral Veteran and Military Night
has collected $3,278,382 in contributions to
date.


DAV Van Service to Bay Pines


offers extended delivery


By MARY MARGARET
STAIK.
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Arte Dreyer,
volunteer director for the
DAV Van Service, announces
the extended delivery dates
of service. The DAV van pro-
-vides transportation to the
IBay Pines VA Medical Center
.on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
,However, as of Sept. 1, the
volunteer drivers will pro-
vide daily transportation,
.,Monday-Friday, to and from
,the Bay Pines VA for veter-
�ans in Highlands County.


Reservations to ride the
van are necessary to ensure
seating availability. To
reserve a seat on the van,
contact Dreyer at 471-6227,
ext. 6697. All appointments
at Bay Pines need to be
scheduled for the morning
hours. The van leaves from
the Sebring VA Clinic at 4:30
a.m. and the Avon Park Winn
Dixie at 4:50 a.m. The van
service leaves Bay Pines no
later than noon, returning to
the area by mid-afternoon.
Caregivers may ride, but only


with prior notification at the
time of setting the reserva-
tion and with a note from the
Clinic explaining. the situa-
tion.
Dreyer is taking applica-
tions for volunteer drivers.
"Extra drivers, are always
welcome," Dreyer said. "It is
easier to keep volunteer driv-
ers if they only need to drive
to Bay Pines and back once
every couple of weeks. The
more drivers in our pool, the
less often the drivers are
assigned to drive."


Newest scam targets veterans


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - There is a
:new scam against veterans
-across the county, according
-to Joseph A. Dionne, direc-
,tor, Veterans Services Office
;for Highlands County.
Dionne is concerned
:regarding the attempted
.fraud. A local veteran
,received a telephone call at
this residence. The caller
indicated the veteran was eli-
,gible for millions of dollars
,in VA benefits. All that was
*-required was for the veteran
*to go down to the local
Western Union and wire a
large sum of money to the


caller. The caller was then
supposed to work the claim
for the veteran. The veteran
was able to obtain the caller's
name and address to where
the Western Union would
deliver the funds.
Dionne's staff contacted
the Regional Veterans
Administration to report the
scam. The VA had a similar
report, but did not have the
caller's name or address.
This alert may provide the
VA with enough information
to pursue a federal police
report. The Highlands
County Sheriff's Office has
been notified of the scam,


and a report has been filed.
"If you are a veteran,
please remember, if it sounds
too good to be true, it is,"
Dionne said. "If you receive
such a call, please try to
obtain as much information
as possible, including a
return telephone number.
Then contact the Veteran
Services Office, 402-6623, or
Detective Sharon Cornine
with the sheriff's department
with the information. You
may also contact the
Regional VA Office at 1-800-
827-1000. Provide as much
detailed information regard-
ing the call as possible."


Vets for Freedom unveils new petition


Special to the News-Sun
WASHINGTON - Vets For
Freedom - the largest Iraq
and Afghanistan war veterans
organization in. America -
ereleased an online petition
,recently . urging . President
1Obama to follow the request
lof the commanders on the
rgtound in Afghanistan and
allocate the troop-strength
necessary to turn the war
ardihnd. The "Give Our
Generals What They Need"
petition calls upon the
President to honor the forth-
coming troop-level recom-
mehdations of General
Stanley McChrystal and give
our troops the same chance to
succeed in Afghanistan that
they had in Iraq following the
:Surge.


The full petition can be
found at: www.vetsforfree-
.dom.org/give_them_what_th
ey_need.
"Unlike Iraq, there was
consensus at the beginning of
the war in Afghanistan that
America must be successful
in toppling the Taliban and
.dismantling Al Qaeda, for the
safety of our country. Eight
years later, the consensus on
the war in "Afghanistan is
fractured; however we
believe that the need for vic-
tory has not changed," reads
the petition. "Now is the time
for your leadership. If you
listen to commanders on the
ground, give them what they
need, and stand behind our
warriors in Afghanistan-we
will stand with you. If you


don't, and would rather fight
the 'war of necessity' with
one hand tied behind our
back, then we will loudly
object."
The "Give Our Generals
'What They Need" petition
comes less than two weeks
after McChrystal's first on-
the-ground assessment of the
War in Afghanistan.
However, this original review
did not contain- troop num-
bers. Within the month,
McChrystal is expected to
send a separate recommenda-
tion to the President on troop
increases, but reports have
indicated that the President
may reject a significant
increase in troops on the
ground.


Bay Pines VA Medical Center

opens expanded hospice care unit


Special to the News-Sun
BAY PINES - The Bay Pines VA Medical
Center has opened the fully renovated and
newly expanded Hospice and Palliative Care
Unit. The unit celebrated a grand opening on
Aug. 21.
, The Bay Pines Hospice and Palliative Care
program expanded from an original 10-14
-beds in a newly renovated portion of the VA
-Hospital, which overlooks Boca Ciega Bay.
,According to officials at Bay Pines, the new
unit provides an environment complete with
soothing music, home-like furnishings, pri-
vate and semi-private rooms, and loving staff.
.Family members are welcome to spend the
:night. Pets from home are welcome visitors.
'To move about the facilities, motorized scoot-
"ers are available.
The unit previously served about 300
patientss per year. With the additional space,
3he facility may accommodate up to 400 vet-


erans per year.
According to Christy Galbreath, chief
nurse of Geriatrics and Extended Care,
"We've always recognized that the last days
of a veteran's life do not need to be spent in a
busy, noisy, hospital setting. It does not meet
their physical, emotional, or spiritual needs.
We wanted to create an environment where
those who have served our country feel com-
fortable, safe, and know that they are not
going to die alone."
Deborah Grassman, Hospice and Palliative
Care Program director, reports, "We have
learned that veterans sometimes experience
death differently than non-veterans. Their
military training indoctrinated them in sto-
icism which might keep them from acknowl-
edging their physical and emotional pain."
She also states that combat veterans some-
time struggle with wartime memories that
surface as they are dying.

"Attention Retirees: Make Up Your Recent

Market Losses Quickly And Easily Using

Guaranteed Accounts"

That's right! You can make up your recent investment losses
quickly and easily, while guaranteeing your principal, all at the
same time!

If you are like most retirees, you've lost a pretty substantial
amount of money over the last couple of years in the stock
market. You may have gone all the way from being fully
comfortable to worrying about running out of your money!

Do you feel like you've lost control of your portfolio and your
financial future?

Fortunately, it doesn't have to be that way. You can take back
control, and much easier than you think.

Here are some recent examples:

* Don's IRA went from $800,000 down to $500,000. He was able to
use guaranteed accounts to instantly double the value of IRA
to over $1,000,000 and eliminate substantial tax at the same
time!
* Joe lost $1,000,000 in the recent stock market downturn. He just
wanted to get back to where he was. He used guaranteed
accounts to make up his losses twice as fast compared to just
staying still and doing nothing.

Don't worry, you don't have to have $1,000,000 for this type of
planning to work.
YOU JUST NEED TO HAVE AN OPEN MIND AND BE WILLING
TO LEARN!

DATE: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 29TH TIME: 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
PLACE: Inn On The Lakes - 3100 Gofview Rd, Sebring, FL 33870
Light lunch will be served.


Reservations are required as seating is
limited to 30. Please call 863-382-0037.

P.S. Many experts are predicting that the
market is about to drop significantly
again. Remember. you are at the point in
your life where you can't make another
- financial mistake.

American Legion
Auxiliary Unit 69
AVON PARK - The
Avon Park American Legion
Auxiliary met Sept. 14 to
report on all the things being
done for our veterans. The
war goes on now with our
surge into Afghanistan and
we Americans must keep the
light burning at home so our
military knows we are here
working for them.
The Auxiliary ladies are
doing a' "Pumpkin for
Patriots" program through
the fall months by selling
homemade pumpkins that
will be placed on the lounge
walls that have you name
and support message for our
troops. All proceeds go to
buying phone cards for our
men and women in harm's
way so they can have their
favorite gift, hearing their
loved ones' voices.
Pumpkins are $2 each if you
want to help.
Legislative Chairman
Anna Lineback reported
there is an Internet site you
can go to send messages to
the troops, thankyouvet.org.
The Auxiliary has also
found another idea for rais-
ing funds this year and under
chairman Ann Kirwan will
be having monthly bake
sales at Bingo on Tuesday.
The sales will be each sec-
ond Tuesday of the month.
The Auxiliary is also starting
to collect canned foods for
the season. There is such a
need this year with so many
out of work and we all need
to help. It's a great time to
clean out the pantries and
start new at home while
helping those in need.
It was great to welcome
three newer members to
Monday's meeting: Sandra
Giegerich, Charlotte Hicks
and LaVerne Todd. "Light of
Liberty" books on our coun-
try's history were also given
to the fifth-graders at Hill-
Gustat Middle School for
Freedom Education Week
Sept. 21.
The comic-style book does
a fantastic job of holding the
child's interest while educat-
ing them about our early his-
tory. Hill-Gustat Middle
school teacher Todd
Hutchison, who is always
looking for ways to ignite
the young peoples interest
and help them differentiate
fact from fiction, had used
the books before in his class-
room but decided this year
to ask the Auxiliary ladies to
provide them to his classes
to "Celebrate Freedom
Week". Sept.21-25. Darlene
Watkin, Americanism chair-
man for the Unit saw this as
a perfect chance to join edu-
cation and Americanism
together, being these are two

SEBRING - The state
agencies and civic organiza-

In addition to providing
tutorial programs for some
150 students in Avon Park

mulating social mores and
ethics that appear to be miss-
ing in many families today.
The Teen Pregnancy
Prevention Alliance has
established successful small
groups of 8-12 girls in Avon
Park, Sebring and Lake
Placid, called Go Girls, in
five or six schools and
churches.
The Boys & Girls Club
wants to initiate a "Go
Guys" program at the Avon
Park and Sebring centers.
They need male mentors
who will meet boys once a
week after club activities for
an hour to discuss a commit-
ment to abstain from sex
until age 18 or marriage.
The TPPA has reduced the
rate of teen pregnancy, but
these turbulent times have
made its mission more diffi-
cult and boys are part of the
equation: hence, the Boys &

scented candle. There will be
a new attendance box next
week.

portion control, water, pro-
tein, fruit and vegetables,
exercise, count calories,
believe in yourself, make

it keep you healthy and reg-
ular.

TOPS FL 632
SEBRING - The meeting
was called to order by leader
Judy O'Boyle. The TOPS
and KOPS pledges were said
by all and the group sang
two songs, "Walk to Stay
Fit" and "This is my Lose
Year!"
June Elam and Carolyn
Ryder presented the pro-
gram. They told teh group
the old habits of eating all or
nothing at all, starving or
bingeing, did not work and
would not work at all. Quick
weight loss results are not
possible. A lifestyle change
is necessary and this does
not happen overnight.
Change comes from within
and takes commitment and a
lot of hard work and joining
a group such as TOPS is
necessary for the support.
The roll was then called
and weight loss for the past
two weeks was excellent and
also for the month of
August. The best loser of
both months and the week
was Lori Roulette. Carolyn
Michael and Lori Roulette
both lost four weeks in a
row. Also Barbara
Heitzenrater and Lori
Roulette both had a 10-
pound weight loss during the
month of August.
Laverda Alvis gave the
treasurer's report for the
month of August and Donna
Raaf read the minutes of the
last meeting. Betty Roulette
kept the four-week travel
gift and, if she loses for
three more weeks, the gift is
hers.
The meeting was then
adjourned with "Hand in
Hand."
TOPS FL 632 meets every
Monday at the First Baptist
Church of Lake Josephine.
Weigh-in begins at 2:30 p.m.
and ends at 3:10 p.m. The
meeting begins at 3:30 p.m.
and lasts approximately one
hour. For more information,
contact Judy O'Boyle at
840-1331.

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Members
of the Rotary Club of
Highlands County are
building a ramp for home-
owners George and Joy
Stubbs in Sebring.
After a hot day of hard
work on what would have
been a day of rest and
relaxation last weekend,
the Rotarians were asked
why they would want to
spend their time that way.
The answer was "the feel-


ing of doing something for
someone less fortunate
made the sore hands and
backs worthwhile." That's
Rotary's motto, "service
above self."
The Rotary Club of
Highlands County meets on
Monday evenings at 6 p.m.
at Charlie's Steak and
Seafood Restaurant off the
circle in Sebring.
Community members who
would like to learn more
about Rotary are welcome.
