Dream, Believe and Celebrate was the theme for this year's Champion for Children Gala. Here, Nellie

Velma Lumpkin honored with


Champion for Children award


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY

SEBRING - Nellie Ford
Guzman's brilliant rendering of the
"Star Bangled Banner" set the tone
for the 10th Annual Judge Clifton
M. Kelly Champion For Children's
Gala Thursday night.
The emotional evening culminat-
ed with a standing ovation for
Velma Lumpkin, who received the
award in honor of her decades of
service leading the Avon Park
Community Child Development
Center.
"I'm shaking," Lumpkin said
after accepting the award, "now
I'm shaking. I need a nurse."
In an interview Friday, Lumpkin
reaffirmed her admiration and grat-
itude for Shirley Furr; Furr's sister,
Charlotte Smith; Furr's daughter
Pat Landress; and Margaret
Turnbull, who together brought the
center to life.
Then she outlined the center's
immediate plans - .an expansion to
create two new classes for infants
and toddlers.
Head Start grants are pending
which make it possible to take in
another 16 children. Lumpkin
hopes to be able to take in the first
baby by Jan. 1, and be fully up and
running nine months after that.

Velma Lumpkin says a few words Thursday evening after being named
2009 Champion for Children during the 10th Annual Gala at
Restoration Center in Sebring.


"Why we've been reluctant (up
until now)," she said, "is that what-
ever we do, we try to do the best,
and we didn't want to do it until we
could do it right."
The two new classrooms will be
built with money bequeathed to the
center by Barbara Heilig, a long-
time supporter.
Lumpkin spoke to the urgent
need for early childcare. Not only

a 'real threat'

to environment
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
Venus - The latest organization to
come out against the 7,700 acre project
slated to be built in -South Highlands
County is Save Our Creeks.
"The proposed re-zoning and
Comprehensive Plan Amendment
required for the Eagle National
Security Training Center poses a real
threat to the natal environment of the
Fisheating Creek watershed," the
group said in a press release.
Save Our Creeks Inc. was created 20
years ago to save Fisheating Creek
from being closed to the public.
The landmark case,
which took years to 'There

After the lawsuits
were settled, the non- PAULA

organization continued Save Our
to devote their time to Creeks
the general purpose of member
conservation of natu-
ral resources, focusing on creeks and
small waterways in southwest Florida.
Paula House, a Save Our Creeks
member, pulled various documents
together to help the organization come
to a decision of whether to speak out
about the project.
"There is plenty information out
there," she said, citing letters from the
Florida Department of Environmental
Protection, South Florida Water
Management District and Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
"There's really not a case to be made
in favor of this project and those docu-
ments are out there," she said.
Though there has since been a settle-
ment agreement that is supposed to
address the concerns of the three agen-
cies, Save Our Creeks said it is not

Terror awaits those who dare to walk the trail


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
Creepy characters were lurking in the deep, dairk woods Friday evening during opening night of Terror Trail 2009 at the
Humane Society on Haywood Taylor Boulevard in Sebring. The trail is a half-mile walk through the woods and is intended
forteens and adults. The event, now in its second year, takes place from 7:30-10 p.m. each Friday and Saturday during
the: month of October, and requires more than 30 volunteers each night, some of them in a tunnel of creepy clowns that is
one of the new highlights on this year's Terror Trail. According to organizers Jon and Judy Spiegel (pictured in bottom
right photo), this year's trail is bigger, better and scarier than ever. The Terror Trail has been declared too intense for
small children. Instead, they will be invited to the Pumpkin Path, a more age appropriate walk in the woods held from
4:30-6 p.m. on Saturdays. The path is a fun-filled outdoor adventure and includes miniature golf, a fish pond, a pirate's
treasure chest, a frog bog and more. Kids can wear costumes. Last year the Humane Society property off of Haywood
Taylor Boulevard played host to 400 people a night, bringing in much needed funds for the organization. 'We are hoping to
do even more," Judy Spiegel said. "My goal is six (hundred) this year.' To learn more visit www.terrortrailinfo.com.

Learning to live side by side


key to AP zoning problem


Avon Park's Planning and Zoning Board is
wrestling with a thorny issue: How to protect
religious freedom while at the same time pro-
tecting the viability of commercial business districts
and the city's tax base


The conflict came to a head
recently, almost 6y accident.
The city passed an ordinance years
ago that restricted churches to resi-
dentially zoned areas, the object
being to keep prime commercial
property on the tax rolls.
When Union Congregational
Church opened a lunch room recent-
ly, a Catch-22 was revealed.
The restaurant wasn't allowed in a
residential zone, and the church was-
n't allowed in a commercial zone.
On top of that, the city learned
that' federal legislation exists that
mandates equality of assembly. In
other words, a church may not be
prohibited from an area that allows
for secular gatherings.
If, for example, a city allows.
movie theaters or has a community
center in a particular zone, it may
not prohibit churches from that zone.
The movie theater and civic center


examples are the clearest in terms of
secular assembly.-People convene in
one place at one time to share an
experience.
This is different from a grocery
store, which may draw people to the
same activity, but who do not assem-
ble to do so. Customers arrive as
individuals and use the store individ-
ually.
A gray area would be a neighbor-
hood tavern, where people gather to
drink socially and mingle in a group.
The key is that both religious and
secular assembly must be treated
equally.
"The whole thing is a mess," said
Tom Macklin, a member of the P&Z
board, as he and fellow board mem-
bers discussed the problem Tuesday
night at a regular meeting.
'Avon Park is not the only city
dealing with the conundrum. Boca
Raton has recently written a new


ordinance because of the same situa-
tion, as has the city of Surfside.
We sympathize with board mem-
bers and commend them for their
effort.
Our only advice, and it will be of
no comfort, is for them to find their
own solution rather than simply
rewrite another municipality's ordi-
nance.
One suggestion made at the meet-
ing was to think ahead and identify
those geographic areas that are like-
ly to generate the most revenue -
the specific example given was the
V. S. 27 corridor - and protect them
for commercial/retail use.
We think this is a good idea.
In the long run, allowing assembly
along Main Street, especially a
movie theater, might actually bring
pedestrians back to downtown. This
could be the foundation upon which
to build restaurants, cafes or coffee
houses.
One compromise will be essential,
however. Churches will have to learn
how to live next door to businesses
that serve alcohol by the glass.

Where were the Tea Baggers?
Editor:
Where were the Tea Baggers when President
Reagan tripled the national debt? (Baggers
consider him God-like).
Where were the Tea Baggers when. President
Bush doubled the national debt? (Baggers con-
sider him one of our greatest presidents).
Where were the Tea Baggers as the insur-
ance companies denied people insurance for
pre-existing conditions and dropped people
who got catastrophic illnesses? (Baggers think
that the "poor" insurance companies are vic-
tims).
Why are the tea baggers so angry all of a
sudden and so terribly worried about their
grandchildren's future?
Hmmm, oh yes, we have a Democratic pres-
ident and he's black!

Cellular service needs an upgrade
Editor:
I noticed a certain bumper sticker adorning
vehicles in Highlands County. The decal dis-
plays protest of a certain cellular/radio service
provider. I have been curious as to the inspira-
tion behind these yellow and black stickers,
and have discovered two motivating factors:
lack of coverage and billing discrepancies.
This leads to unhappy customers bound by
contract to a phone that is useless in too many
areas, even their own living room.
Lorida/Spring Lake is a notorious dead
zone, also areas around Avon Park. You cannot
rely upon this cellular service for anything in
those areas, including emergencies.
If stranded there, start walking. If in an
accident, pray that someone comes along with
a phone that actually works.
This particular carrier has outgrown itself,
leaving it unable to meet an ever increasing
demand. They rely solely upon their own tow-
ers, which are .too widespread. I suppose dip-
ping into the tower budget would compromise
the Christmas bonuses of executives expecting
customers to accept the poor service.
"Hybrid" phones were introduced with the
intention of compensating for this problem by
enabling usage of another carrier's towers.
This has proven to be a complete failure.
Billing issues are common. A customer
never exceeding plan minutes, never down-

lead you to someone that can help resolve
issues with your phone service. Most often
however, this connects you to an individual
that can barely pronounce your name.
I recommend.changing this to pressing one
for English, and two for fluent English. The
"press two for fluent English" option would
enable the caller to communicate efficiently
with an associate, thus reducing wasted time
discussing an already confusing billing state-
ment. Bottom line, if English is your primary
language, you need to speak Vith a representa-
tive whose primary language is English.
We all know that outsourcing created call
centers in other countries where English is a
second language to a select few. Speaking to
someone in India about poor cell service in
Highlands County, Florida might be working


for a select few, but for most it is a wasted,
dropped call.

Are we not Americans?
Editor:
I like many Americans are so tired of all,the
politics, fighting and labeling! I don't think
there is a country that has so many labels asso-
ciated with its citizens, and many of them
aren't nice labels. We are called Christians,
atheists, Republican, Democrats, Independent,
white American, black American, yellow
American, etc.
I was raised to be just an "American."
Why do we say first black President when in
fact he is half white, or first Hispanic woman
Supreme Justice when it is evident they are
proud Americans? We are all Americans living
in the greatest land on earth that gave us all
these civil liberties that we use so easily in a
negative way, not the way our forefathers who

What would you do

for fame.?
Today I want to take a few minutes
and talk about the things people will
do in order to get that 15 minutes of
fame Andy Warhol once mentioned.
(You have to wonder where he came
up with 15 minutes, given Warhol has
been famous for a lot longer than that.
Maybe if you're famous for less than
15 minutes it doesn't count?)
I've given some thought about
where this desire to be famous started.
Did primitive man have contests to see
who could catch the- biggest dinosaur?
Of course, that would've been tough,
because I'm suspectifig that a lot of
primitive men got stomped on by
dinosaurs, thus disqualifying them-
selves and causing primitive woman to
roll her eyes at her husband's idiocy.
Then came things like government,
where men and women could try for
fame by being born to a royal house-
hold (you had to plan really far ahead
for this one) or running for office.
Running for office was harder then
getting born into a royal household,
because people running for office had
to put up with being nice to people
they didn't like and make promises
they couldn't keep, while all you had'
to do to succeed as a royal baby is be
cute and remember not to poop on the.
king.
Running for office is still a grueling
way for people to aim for fame.
Fortunately, you don't even have to.
win while running for office to suc-
ceed, something that I'm sure com-
forts Ralph Nader and his roomful of
supporters.
But politics isn't the only way to try
to get famous. There are reality shows,
which will give you a shot at fame as
long as you're willing to do truly dis-'
gusting things, such as get dropped oh
a desert island and eat bugs.
I'm sorry. There are some things I
will not do in order to be famous.
Eating bugs is pretty high on that list.
So is spending weeks in a place with'
no air conditioning or private toilets.
So is trying to sing in front of a bunch
. of strangers - I'm glad God sAid to
make a joyful "noise" unto the Lord
and didn't mention staying on key.
And then there is that huge book
that can be a claim to fame for ordi-
nary people who are obsessed, lucky,
or out of their minds. That tome is the
Guinness.Book of.World Records.
I used to go through the annual
book cheerfully, enjoying some of the
records reported. I especially like ones
like "Largest Hot Fudge Sundae,"
which sounds like a lot of work but
admit it - you'd want to be right there
with a spoon.
But people will do strange and scary
things to get into this book. I'm think-
ing especially of the 17 people in Ohio
who decided to break the world's
record for - I am not kidding - most
people set on fire at the same time.
This attempt was led by stuntman
Ted Batchelor, who holds the record
for longest period on fire - over two
minutes. Mr. Batchelor trained these
people for their attempt and empha-
.sized to the Fox News interviewer that
safety was paramount.
. I watched the video of these people
swathed in protective gear and flames
(they stayed aflame for about 43 sec-
onds) and decided there were easier
ways to become famous. I wonder if
it's too late to be born to a royal
household?

Be the Wall between teens and alcohol for homecoming


Homecomings are important tra-
ditions for our community and
schools. They foster a sense of
community spirit and belonging for
students, teachers and parents that
may otherwise get diluted or lost
throughout the busy school year.
The homecoming celebrations
for our high schools are just
around the corner. Local teens will
be participating in numerous activ-
ities as they prepare for the covet-
ed football game and semi-formal
dance. These events provide an
opportunity for teens to show their
school spirit while socializing with
their friends in organized school
sanctioned activities. These events
also provide a unique opportunity
for parents and other adults to
communicate to teens expectations
and rules pertaining to alcohol use.
Drug Free Highlands is asking
for the community to help us pre-


pare for homecoming at all three
high schools. Our "Be ihe Wall"
campaign has been reaching par-
ents with the message to be clear,
firm and consistent with their mes-
sages about the dangers of under-
age drinking.
We have collected more than
1,300 pledges from adults and as
the schools prepare, students will
be able to sign a "friend's pledge"
card. Their card will say, "What I
will look to a friend that might try
to drink. I'm the Wall between my
friends and alcohol."
We are building symbolic walls
around the county with the signed
pledges, which look like a brick.
Lake Placid High School cele-
brates it on Sept. 25, Sebring High
School is celebrating on Oct. 23
and Avon Park High School cele-
brates on Oct. 30.
Here are three user-friendly tips


Guest Column
Karen Patton

to help parents and other adults
navigate homecoming week.
1. Most teens don't drink. While
teens may hear quite a bit of
"drunk-talk" on campus and espe-
cially during homecoming week, it
is important for them to understand
the context of this talk. The stu-
dents that are drinking are always
going to brag the loudest about
their behaviors - this is their way
of making their behaviors accept-
able to their peers. Consider - no
one walks onto campus on Monday
morning saying "dude, I was so
sober this weekend", but in reality,
the majority of students were not at
a party, let alone drinking. The bot-
tom line is that the overwhelming
majority of students will have a


great time during homecoming fes-
tivities without alcohol.
2. "My parents will kill me" is
an acceptable phrase among teen
groups for "no thank you" when it
comes to alcohol and other sub-
stances. No teenager wants to be
the cause for getting another
teenager grounded - it is socially
unacceptable in teen circles. If
your teen knows that you are seri-
ous about enforcing the house rules
surrounding alcohol, especially if
you have a test-kit readily avail-
able at home, then you have pro-
vided them with a powerful "opt-
out" mechanism should they be
faced with this decision in a social
setting.
3. There is no such thing as safe
teen drinking. Homecoming is the
time of year when even the most
well meaning parents may waiver
in their no-use standards for their


teens. While there are many argu-
ments against this behavior, includ-
ing the potential criminal and civil
consequences for providing alcohol
to someone else's teen, there is a
larger issue of respectability
between the teen and parent.
Nationwide, most teens report that
they neither approve of nor respect
adults that provide alcohol to
teens..Teens expect adults to tell *
them "no" when it comes to alco-
hol. That being said, let "no" be
the mantra this homecoming sea-
son.
You can share your homecoming
stories or survival tips with other
parents by participating in our par-
ent blog at www.bethewall.org.

services at Tri-County Human Services

TODAY'S LETTERS


Continued from page 4A
signed the Declaration of
Independence intended. They
gave up their wealth, fami-
lies and lives so that we can
what ... use it against each
other in daily lies both in the
media and in public life.
Wake up America and don't
destroy what we have been
given.
I was raised to respect our
president, the position if not
the man. When in my life
did I ever think I would hear
him referred to as Mr.
Obama or be rejected in
today's classroom to give
encouragement to our chil-
dren to learn, strive to be
better and stay in school.
Did we question Mrs.
Bush's intent when she went
into the schools?
If you read " The Greatest
Generation" by Tom Brokaw
you would have realized
what our World War II gen-
eration was made of that
gave us the country we are
today. Maybe with that gen-
eration dying in alarming
rates our system is also
dying! Maybe as a people
we don't have what it takes
to respect one another, work
together for a good' cause or
give up our luxuries when
times are bad.
This war started eight
years ago on a lie. Many
have made money on this
war as those opportunist
always do but worse than
that, our people have died
and most of those who have
died are average citizens
who believed in following
orders and the greater cause.
Our country didn't get into
this financial mess over
night.
It's obvious that Wall
Street runs our country more
than our politicians. They
invest in those politicians
and lobbyist. Have for years.
When Wall Street fell, so to
- speak, a year ago, where was
our president and officials
then? Where were they
before the auto industry fell?
Where have they been for
our people's medical needs?
Again corporations rule.,
I never have been a fan of
people like Michael Moore
but his new film on capital-
ism and our financial system
is one we would all do well
to watch. It might open some
of your eyes, add to logic or
lack of, and make us step up
and support the good things
that happen and not label
anyone in our society. Just
as there is good and evil in
every country I still prefer to
think of this country, my
country and yours as being
full of "Americans." Good
Americans.
Please take back our
America, don't follow blind-
ly, research and become
informed. Two good Web
sites for this are
factcheck.org and
politifact.com.

Officials should
represent the people
Editor:
The article about the
"Training Center" proposed
for the Venus area con-
firmed, to me, what I have


been observing about politi-
cians at every level of gov-
ernment. Highlands County
Commissioner Don Bates
was quoted as saying, "... I
will vote my conscience and
for the benefit of the people
of Highlands County and the
people of Venus." Since
when did Mr. Bates get
elected to tell us what he
will do for us? Isn't he sup-
posed to do what we tell
him?
The people of Venus gave
him what appears to be a
mandate - vote NO on the
project at least until lots of
questions are answered. The
report in your paper (Friday,
Sept. 25) indicated that the
people were asking questions
but Mr. Bates and the rest of
the panel were not giving
answers. Could it be that Mr.
Bates underestimated the
intelligence of those he is
allegedly representing?
Last you think I am pick-
ing on Mr. Bates, I sent sev-
eral letters to U.S. Senator
Bill Nelson concerning the
various bills such as health
care, Cap and Trade and
bailouts presently working
their way through Congress.
In every case I got a "boiler
plate" response from him
that said he was going to do
what he "felt was best for
the people of Florida."
Never mind that the majority
of us do not want what has
been reported about these


* ~
, ..~,.U


projects. No, he will tell us
what he feels is best for us -
like it or lump it!
Remember these things
when you go to the voting
booths. Our representatives
are elected to represent us,
not their points of view,
which are possibly (proba-
bly?) tainted by political
contributions to their elec-
tion campaigns.

Harvest for Hospice
a huge success


Editor:
The inaugural Harvest for
Hospice held at the Chateau
Elan on Sept. 12 benefiting
the Highlands County
Hospice House was a suc-
cess beyond our imagination.
The nine months of diligent
work by the volunteer plan-
ning committed chaired by
Gayle and Mike Chapman
created a memorable
evening.
An event doesn't just hap-
pen but requires the support
of the local media, the busi-

ness community and the
public. In the specific
instance of the Harvest for
Hospice fundraising event,
we especially recognize the
premier sponsors Ashley
Financial Services, SunTrust
Banks Inc. and S.Y. Hartt &
Sons Inc.
More than 200 guests
enjoyed wine and food tast-
ings. Local restaurants pro-
viding the lovely food pre-
sentations were: Wild Turkey
Tavern, Edible
Arrangements, Outback


Steakhouse, Meson Madrid,
the Golden Palms Catering,
Zeno's Italian Restaurant,
Four Points by Sheraton
Sebring, Chateau Elan,
Sunita's Gourmet Chocolates
and Gifts and Sweet Street.
Wine was provided by
Chateau tlan, Republic
National Distributing
Company and Los Vinos
located in Ibanez Gardens,
Lake Placid. Bernie Little

sampling of multiple beers.
Meson Madrid Tasca
Flamenco brought an espe-

Highlands County Hospice

the in-kind advertising that
the News-Sun so willingly
provided. The power of the
press cannot be overlooked
in helping to spread the
word on events including the
time, date and location.
The entire Good Shepherd

Horse Liniment
Erases Pain
HIALEAH, FL - An ingredient
often used to treat inflammation in
race horse legs. is now back on the
market in its original doctor recom-
mended clinical strength formula.
According to a national drug store
survey, the formula at one time be-
came so popular that it rose to the top
of pharmacy sales for topical pain
relievers. But the company market-
ing the product at the time changed
the formula anrd sales plummeted.
One of the inventors of the original
formula has brought it back to the
market under the trade name ARTH
ARREST and says it can relieve pain
for millions.
ARTH ARREST works by a dual
mechanism whereby one ingredient
relieves pain immediately, while a
second ingredient seeks out and de-
stroys the pain messenger signal be-
fore it canbe sent to the brain. Con-
sidered a medical miracle by some,
the ARTH ARREST formula is use-
ful in the treatment of painful disor-
ders ranging from minor aches and
pains to more serious conditions such

According to the SFWMD,
there is not a sustainable
source of water for the pro-
posed facility.
"Demand is up to 4 million
gallons per day for this proj-
ect," House said.."No source
for this kind of withdrawal
' has been identified, yet they
are willing to change the zon-
ing. How can that be?"
The rezoning of the land
will have direct, foreseeable
negative impacts to existing
wetlands, flood plains, water
quality and water quantity,
the press release stated, cit-
ing comments about the proj-
ect from the FDEP.
The area is one of the
largest "fairly natural" areas
in the Florida peninsula, the
press release said, including
large populations of three
plants endemic to central
Florida, and acting as a


Strategic Conservation Area
for the Florida panther and
other animals. The area acts
as home to at least six bald
eagle nests.
The only thing protective
about the settlement agree-
ment, House said, was a
small statement, reading
"Highlands County, through
the .EAR (Evaluation and
Appraisal Report)-based
amendment process, shall
consider objectives and poli-
cies relating to the protection
of water quality within the
Lake Okeechobee watershed
through a watershed-based
approach."
Save Our Creeks does not
think that adequately
addresses all the issues sur-
rounding the project, House
said.
"That's the only protective
statement, and we don't think
that's protection," she said.
"We think that's an open
gate."

to get the word out about the"
race so dachshunds from all
over the Heartland area can
enter."
Renee Bennett, chief exec-
utive officer of Mahagement
Experts Inc. in Avon Park,
and her pet crew member
Marcha Bogle, who is also
employed at Management
Experts, are preparing
Bennett's 2-year-old dachs-
hund for the race. The dog's
name is M.J., which is short
"for Maggie Jr.
* "We are going to make
;sure she gets plenty of rest,
Aplenty of water, eat healthy,
;:no snacks, train her hard and
,we are going to practice,
practice, practice," Bennett
.said. "I exercise her every
:morning. We do warm ups,
:stretches, play on the floor
'and fetch every day."
. Bogle will be the team
.member holding M.J. while
:Bennett will entice her to the
finish line. Although some
:teams will use squeaky toys,
:food and other items to moti-
,vate their dogs, Bennett mod-
:estly admitted she is the key
,to getting M.J. to run fast.
"We will just deprive her
;from seeing me for about an
;hour before the race. She will
Sgot nuts and run towards me
if she is deprived. She will do
;a Snoopy happy dance,"
Bennett said.
While posing for pictures,
iBennett decked M.J. out in an
,orange and blue Florida
'University Gators cheerlead-
ing outfit for two reasons - to
motivate all Gator fans to


come out and cheer for her
and to get the other college
team supporters pumped up
to find a mascot to race
against M.J. Bennett consid-
ers this an official challenge.
Bennett plans on entering
M.J. in the Adult and the Top
Dog divisions.
Although M.J. has a dis-
ability, Bennett said she is
full of fire. M.J. has a club
foot and she was born with a
genetic disorder in her back
that caused it to be crooked.
"She's perfect in my eyes,"
Bennett said. "The crook in
her back puts a spring in her
step." !
Fry Cooper, of Lake
Placid, owns a 2-year-old
dachshund named Precious
that he received as a gift
when he lost his longtime pet
dog. Cooper has been work-
ing with his dog for the race
along with his pet crew mem-
ber - and wife - Christina.
"We have been training
her. We are exercising the
dog some," Cooper said. "We
are even getting her accus-
tomed to other dogs by taking
her over to our neighbors
who have dogs. We have
stood a distance away from
her to call her to see how fast
she will go."
Cooper did not want to
divulge any other race secrets
but did say they will be there
race day to enter the Adult
Race category.
Pet owners and their
dachshunds will check in at 3
p.m. Race time will be at 4
p.m. The race track will be
set up in the grassy area to
the right of the Avon Park
Museum Dining Car on
Museum Avenue. The grass
will make it easier for the
dogs to run.
There will be four race cat-
egories of dachshunds -
Puppy, Senior, Adult and Top
Dog. Puppies need to be
under 1 year old and will race
20 feet. Adults will be 1 year
old and older and race 35
feet. Seniors will be 9 years
old and older and race 20
feet.
The Top Dog Race will be
for all dogs and the course
will be 35 feet. The winner of
the Top Dog Race will


receive a six-month supply of
Exclusive Dog Food from
Glisson's Animal Supply and
a trophy. Awards will be pre-
sented in all four categories.
"The course is short
because these small dogs
have shorter legs than most
dogs and don't need the extra
stress on their bodies from
doing a long race," Marshall
said. "We always want to
keep the. safety of the animal
in mind when doing this type
of event."
Matter of fact, safety will
be a concern for the crowd as
well. The race course will be
fenced off with. orange fenc-
ing to give the audience pro-
tection from the animals. All
pet owners must make sure to
have all.the dog's shots up to
date. Shots include distem-
per, rabies and Parvo. Local
veterinarians are aware of the
race and are ready to assist
with any shots needed.
, All pet owners will need to


clean up after their dogs and
have all medications on hand
since there will be no regis-
tered nurse or doctor on
hand. Pet owners will also
have to have homeowner's
insurance to cover any dam-
ages or injuries caused by
their dog.
The two-person pet crew
will consist of one person
holding the dog at the start-
ing line and one person
catching the dog at the finish
line. The finish line crew
member can bring toys,
snacks or whatever item is
necessary to entice the ani-
mal to race toward them.
Registration fee is $5 per
event if registered and post-
marked by Oct. 15. After Oct.
15, it will be $6 per event. An
application is needed for
every dog. Applications can
be obtained at Ridge Area
Arc, 120 West College Drive,
Avon Park, FL, 33825 or call
452-1295, ext. 124. They are


also available at the Avon
Park Chamber of Commerce
office at 28 East Main Street.
Local veterinarians, pet
stores and pet groomers have
applications available. All
applications need to be
returned to Ridge Area Arc
with a check made payable to


the agency.
All proceeds will go
toward Ridge Area Arc's
Scholarship Fund which
assists individuals with
developmental disabilities to
receive services that they lost
during the past year due to
state budget cuts.

To us, there's no grander opening than one that saves lives.
That's why we're incredibly excited about our PCI program. Now our
experienced interventional specialist and team have advanced technology
in the fight against heart disease.
PCI, or Percutaneous Coronary Intercention (also known as angioplasty)
uses an inflatable, balloon-like device to widen diseased arteries and
increase blood flow to the heart. When the balloon is deflated, a metal
mesh stent is left behind to hold the artery open. In the case of a heart
attack, the procedure can be lifesaving. Better still, elective PCI can
prevent a heart attack in the first place.
This newest lifesaving procedure is the next step in our longtime
commitment to the prevention, diagnosis and rapid treatment of heart
disease. It's also part of our broader mission to deliver physical,
spiritual and emotional healing in a safe, caring environment.
So while you won't find hotdogs or deejays at our grand oupvning, you'll
find plenty of lifesaving balloons.

Streaks roll in district opener


By DAN HOEHNE

SEBRING - An intermit-
tent rain fell on Firemen's
Field Friday night, but the
slick field and sometimes
slippery ball did little to
quell the Blue Streaks in a
dominant 42-7 win over
Lake Nona to begin their
district schedule.
After the vaunted
offense was held in Se
dry-dock by Hardee
two weeks ago, the 4
Sebring attack Lak
returned to high gear,
scoring on four of six
first-half possessions
for a 28-0 lead.
And it could have been
worse for the visiting Lions.
"We turned the ball oler
twice near the end zone."
head coach Jared Hamlin
said. "That was disappoint-
ing, since we scored every
time that we didn't turn the
ball over." ,
Like a scene out of last
Monday's Indianapolis,
Miami matchup, Lake Nona
took the opening kickoff
and spent nearly five min-


utes driving the ball toward
midfield.
But a C.J. Massaline
interception and return to
the Lion 19 made the time
consuming drive for naught.
It then took Sebring all of
one play and a matter of
seconds to get on the board
with Daniel Burnett break-
ing free from 19-yards out

for a 7-0 lead, after
Troy Talbert's point
after . split the
uprights.
Devonte Pough
then proved his nose
for the loose ball was
still sniffing, after
last week's three-


turnover performance, as he
soon pounced on a fumble
to again give Sebring the
ball at the Nona 19.
It took five plays, this
time, before Devin Clarke
scampered in from five
yards out to push the lead to
14-0.
The defense held for a
three-and-out against the
Lion's spread formation,
and it looked as if the
Streaks were driving for


another score.
But one of those
turnovers Hamlin men-
tioned came about on a fum-
ble inside the 30, ending the
scoring threat just as the
first quarter came to an end.
Lake Nona's offense
started connecting to open
the second, on short passes,
but Sebring forced another
fumble soon enough, with
Benji Toney falling on it at
the 35.
Three plays later, quarter-
back Matt Grubb was con-
necting with Clarke on a 20-
yarder to make it a 21-0
game.
Toney's brother, Tevin,
then came up with a big
tackle for a loss to set the
tone on the Lions' next
series, another three-and-
out, but Sebring's second
turnover of the half short-
circuited its next touchdown
try, with a slick ball getting
through Clarke's out-
stretched hands and falling
to a Lake Nona defender.
"The ball got a little slick.

AVON PARK - The Red
Devils' "pistol" offense had
just enough bullets to over-
come its' mistakes Friday
night as Avon Park pulled out
a 25-13 victory in the district
opener over the visiting
Sarasota Cardinal Mooney
Cougars at Joe Franza
Stadium.
Providing most Avon
of the firepower
were receiver
Alonzo Robertson
and running back Cardina
Eric Jameson.
Robertson had five 1
catches - almost
every one of them play-of-
the-week worthy - for 145
yards and a pair of touch-
downs, and Jameson, taking
most of the load due to an
injury to Teddy Allen, had 18
carries for 138 yards and a
score.
The pistol, where quarter-
back Tekovan Miller isn't
under center but isn't as deep
as a regular shotgun forma-
tion, worked well for the


Devils, other than when they
were putting themselves in
holes with penalties.
"We played around with it
a little bit," head coach Andy
Bonjokian said. "We like to
run the option out of it, and
that was the plan, but it kind
of gives our quarterback a lit-
tle bit more time. We're for-
tunate to have running backs

that run
enough
we're able
it."


hard
where
to run


The Devils (3-1)
managed to over-
come three penal-
ties on their first
scoring drive, one


of which wiped out a 17-yard
gain on third-and-13. Miller
found Robertson for a 27-
yard gain on the next play,
however, setting up a 15-yard
scoring strike to Dwayne
Council to make it 6-0 with
8:26 left in the second quar-
ter. The point-after try was
blocked.
Council's interception on
Mooney's fourth play after
the score gave the Devils the


y


ball on the Mooney 47, and
Jameson made the Cougars
pay quickly for the turnover,
busting through a pair of
tackles and putting on a nice
spin move on the way to a
47-yard TD run to put the
Devils up 12-0 with 6:18
remaining in the half.
The Cougars fought back,
however, using an intercep-
tion of their own to set up an
easy score. Nick Smith
stepped in front of a pass and
returned it 51 yards down to
the Avon Park 4, and Jake
Falter plunged in from the 2
two plays later. The two-
point conversion pass was
incomplete for a 12-6 score
at the half.
That was the score heading
into the fourth quarter, too,
but it didn't stay that way for
long thanks to a pair of great
catches from Robertson. The
first was a jumping catch
over a pair of defenders on
the sideline for a 39-yard
gain on third-and-8 to close
out the third quarter. The next

Red Devil wide receiver Alonzo Robertson didn't make this first-quarter catch, but that's
the only ball that was thrown his way he didn't bring down in a 145-yard, two-touchdown
performance.

LAKE PLACID - What a
memorable night it was for
the Lake Placid Green
Dragon football team as they
rallied back from a stagnant
first-half performance to top-
ple the LaBelle
Cowboys 20-18. Lake
"We came out flat
tonight," commented 2
Green Dragon head
coach Jason Holden. Lal
"We didn't do a good
job in our preparations 1
and it showed."
The night was made extra
special because it marked the
first district victory in four
years for the Dragons while
also coming on Homecoming
in front of. packed stadium.
"We looked at the distrac-
tions that come with home-
coming as a positive," said
Holden. "Tonight all boiled


P


Be

11


down to the fact that we
weren't ready to play. We had
too many mental mistakes."
After a big Green Dragon
stop on defense to start the
game, the offense went to
work.
Lake Placid moved the ball
effectively with the
'lacid running of Navahri
I Holden and Caleb
Jones but the drive
was cut short on an
lle interception thrown by
B Kirk Veley.
Following the
Green Dragon


turnover, the Cowboys took
over the ball at the 50-yard
line and strung out a nine-
play drive that was capped
off on a 2-yard keeper from
Jordan Phillips.
Penalties and mental mis-
takes killed the Dragons on
the next series as they were
moving the ball nicely before


a holding call and a quarter-
back sack backed the
Dragons up.
The Green Dragon defense
stood strong on the Cowboys
next possession, forcing a
three-and-out.
But a muffed punt recep-
tion gave the ball back to
LaBelle on the Green Dragon
9-yard line.
The Cowboys needed only
four pl., , to find the end
zone as Dale Thompson
plunged over the goal line for
a 1-yard score and 12-0 lead.
The Green Dragon offense
had spurts of greatness on
their next possession as Veley
found Jacob Campbell on 17-
yard pick up that was fol-
lowed by a nifty >.-1., run
by Jones.
But a clipping penalty
backed them up and Lake

Bulldogs take bite out

-of Lady Devils


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.c(om
AVON PARK - A common
occurrence for a young team
looking to turn the corner
toward sustained success, is
an occasional wrong turn.
Such was the case
Thursday night as the build-
ing of confidence and team
ability of recent weeks saw a
bit of a backslide.
"I'm not sure what hap-
pened," head coach
Stephanie Devlin said after
the three-game loss to visit-
ing Frostproof. "They may
have gotten big heads after
Tuesday's win (at Tenoroc),
but this wasn't the team I've
been seeing lately."
Things took a tough turn
early when, with an 8-3 lead,
the Lady Bulldogs pawed
back on an 8-0 run to go up
11-8.
Devlin called time out at
that point to refocus her
Devils, which seemed to
work over the next few min-
utes.
Heather Bass scored twice
on kills, Tia Nobles earned a
kill and ace, Teresa Devlin
had two scoring slams and
Zakia Hart served up, an ace
and made a huge dig save to
sustain a rally toward an
Avon Park point.


After the flurry, the Devils
found themselves with a 22-
16 lead, just three points
from the opening-game win.
But with Brittany Monk
serving for the Bulldogs,.
Frostproof ran off another 8-
0 run to suddenly make it a
24-22 game.
The Park battled back to
even things up at 24, then 25
and finally 26, before the
Lady 'Dawgs edged out the
final two for a 28-26 win.
"I think that losing that
lead really, caught them by
surprise. They , were like,
'wow, I can't believe we just
lost that game,'" Devlin said.*
"We never really recovered,
or played our game, after
that."
And though the premise of
the next two game played out
similar to the first, with the
Devils being the first team to
reach 20 points, each result
turned out the.same as well,
with Frostproof making the
last charge to claim victory.
Wrong turns are taken on
the path to success, and the
young Lady Devils got a dose
of that Thursday.
Now it's a matter of get-
ting back on the right track as
they continue their schedule
at district front-runner Lake
Placid Tuesday night.

But the team, as head
coach Marilyn Jones
described, "came out flat in
that second game," which
resulted in a 25-21 loss and
served as a reminder that
even as district front-runner,
a relaxed moment can lead to'
a loss against anyone.
The Dragons pulled up the'
effort again in the next two to
close it out by 25-15 and 25-
11 wins.


Lake Placid continues it's
district schedule this week
with a game at Moore Haven
Monday, at home with Avon
Park Tuesday and at Hardee
Thursday.
The Lady Blue Streaks,
meanwhile, prepped for a big
week with i three-game
sweep of Ridge.
The win makes it six in a
row for Sebring and sets up
rematches with the teams'


only district losses.
The Streaks head to Haines
City Tuesday and welcome
Winter Haven to town
Thursday.
"I'm excited for these
games," head coach Venessa
Sinness said at practice last
week. "And to see what
Haines City looks like at full
strength."

Dragons strike late, hang on for win


Continued from 1B
Placid was soon forced to
punt.
Both teams traded posses-
sions to end the first half with
LaBelle up 12-0.
Lake Placid came out of
the locker room, however,
like a team on fire as the
Dragons seemed to regain the
swagger they exhibited in
last week's loss to Avon Park.
"We came in at halftime
and it looked like the players
weren't responding," Holden
said. "But when the coaches
left the room several players
stepped up and got the team
fired up for the second half."
Lake Placid came out of
intermission and took the
opening kickoff to the 47-
yard line but, despite good
field position, weren't able to
pick up a first down to keep
the drive alive.
The Lake Placid defense
stepped up big on the first
play of the next drive as
Campbell delivered a big
shot on the ball carrier forc-
ing him to fumble, allowing
for Zack Reynolds to fall on
the ball.
The Green Dragon offense
took over possession on the
LaBelle 27-yard line and they
gave a heavy dose of Holden,
who carried the ball three
times for 12 yards on the
drive.
Lake Placid then picked up
a big first down on a run by
Jones to set the ball up at the
two, where Holden took it
across the goal line for the
score.
A Stephen Guelff extra
point cut the Cowboy lead to
12-7.
On the Cowboys ensuing
possession, the Lake Placid
defense came up with another
big takeaway as linebacker
Ryan Blount drilled the ball
carrier and forced him to put
the ball on the ground.
Lake Placid recovered the
fumble and were in business
at the 13-yard line.
"The defense stepped up
big for us," said Holden.
"The turnovers deep in their
territory helped us gain con-
fidence in ourselves."
Lake Placid got a great
surge off the ball on first and
second downs as Jones
pushed the ball to the five,
where Veley did the rest as he
followed center Anthony
Canevari to paydirt for the
touchdown.
The Dragons attempted a
two point conversion but

Friday night.


failed, giving them a narrow
13-12 lead.
After stopping LaBelle's
next series, Lake Placid put
together an epic drive that
would cover 81 yards on 15
plays and take nearly seven
minutes off the clock.
What made the drive so big
was that the Dragons con-
verted a fourth-and-1 on their
own 28 and were faced with
several third downs that they
converted.
"This drive showed how
much character we have,"
commented Holden. "When
went for it on fourth and
short and picked it up, it was
a great risk but the outcome
was huge."
Lake. Placid didn't throw
the ball a single time but
instead used the solid ground
game and the big blocking up
front to lead them down the
field.
The Green Dragons even
had a solid run from defen-
sive tackle Brandon Elder
who picked up 10 yards for
the first down.
The drive was capped off
by Jones who followed his
blockers on what looked like
a good old fashioned student
body left from seven yards
out.
Guelff added the PAT to
put the Dragons up 20-12.
LaBelle responded quickly
to the Green Dragons score
as Phillips hit Thompson on a
screen pass.
Thompson then broke a
tackle and scampered 83
yards for the score.
Lake Placid stopped the


two-point conversion try to
put the score at 20-18.
Lake Placid answered
back with a solid drive of
their own as they picked up a
first down but were faced
with a fourth and one with
less than two minutes to go.
A first down would seal
the game for the Dragons,
whereas a turnover on downs
would breathe a life into the
Cowboys.
Holden called for a quar-
terback keeper that looked as
if it were enough for the first
down but the when the ball
was spotted it was about six
inches short.
LaBelle had a last-chance
effort that came up empty,
allowing the Dragons to
come away with the win.
The game was a tale of
two halves as Lake Placid
ran only 17 plays for 115
yards in the first half and 32
plays for 167 yards in the
second half.
Lake Placid was led on
offense by Jones who had
150 yards on 19 carries while
Holden had 10 punishing
runs for 60 yards.
Veley finished the game 5-
of-9 for 58 yards and an
interception.
His favorite targets where
Jones, who had two catches
for 12 yards and Campbell
who had two catches for 27
yards.
The win lifted the Dragons
to 2-2 overall and 1-0 in the
District 6-2B standings and
will have next week off to
rest and get ready for a trip to
Island Coast Friday, Oct. 9.


Streaks head to bye with win,


Continued from 1B
at times," Hamlin said.
"That one just slipped out of
Matt's fingers a little bit,
but sometimes that's all it
takes."
The Blue Streak defense,
however, refused to bend,
holding for another three-
and-out to set up a 49-yard
drive that culminated in
Grubb pushing it through
from the one for a 28-0 mar-
gin at the half.
With the big lead, and
possession to open the third,
Sebring set about sealing
the deal.
After a series-opening
sack set them back nine
yards, Grubb found Clarke
for 16 yards, Trini Sutton
ran for 12 and three straight
Burnett runs totaled 13 to
bring it to the Lake Nona
29.
Jaquan Williams then
hauled in a Grubb pass for
24 yards to the five, Grubb
rumbled it down to the one
and Burnett finished the job
with a one-yard plunge.
With a running clock now
in effect, the Lions moved
the ball near midfield.
But the drive bridging the
third and fourth quarters
stalled, setting the stage for
Sebring's final romp.
Sutton rattled off a 17-
yarder before Burnett
moved the chains further
with runs of four, three
and seven yards.
With the ball just past
midfield, Burnett would
climax his big night, cut-
ting through the middle
and breaking free down
the far sideline for a 49-
yard touchdown run.
Burnett would total 154
yards on 17 carries for
three touchdowns and
added a 36-yard reception
to the mix.
Lake Nona would get a
moment to take with them,
as they broke into Sebring
territory for just the sec-
ond time of the night, and
got a 29-yard touchdown

two Lake Nona drives to get into Blue Streak territory
and giving up a lone touchdown with 38.4 seconds left.


from quarterback Kevin
Sousa to wideout Matt
Mendez with just over 38
seconds left in the game.
"They spread it out and
posed a lot of challenges fof
us," Hamlin said. "But our
defense really did the job,
kept them underneath and
stopped their quarterback
who we'd seen have a lot of
big gains on film."
Sousa's line of the night
would show that as the Lion
QB went just 15-38 for 144
yards, the late touchdown
and two interceptions -
Clarence Counts picked the
second one late in the game.


Grubb, meanwhile, had
nearly as many yards pass-
ing (116) in less than a third
of the attempts (11) with a
much better completion per-
centage (7-of-11, 63.6-per-
cent).
"It's big to get the first
district win," Hamlin said.
"But now we've got our
work cut out for us with
Lake Wales, a great team
that's ranked pretty high in"
3A."
That huge district match-
up will be on the road
Friday, Oct. 9, with Sebring
having the extra bye week in
which to prepare.


Devils overcome Cougar rally


Continued from 1B
was a similar grab in the end
zone for a 17-yard score on
the second play of the final
period for a 19-6 lead with
11:48 left in the game.
Mooney fought back again,
sparked by a good kickoff
return that set them up at the
Avon Park 30.
Grant Flessner went right
up the gut on a fourth-down
quarterback keeper for an 11-
yard touchdown run to trim
the Devils' lead to 19-13 with
9:26 to go.
The Devils marched down
to the Mooney 6-yard line on


their ensuing possession, but
were stopped on fourth down.
Mooney was putting
together a good drive, too, in
an effort to take the lead
before Charlie Br6wn
stepped in, ripping the ball
out of the hands of Flessner
on the 42 for the takeaway
with 2:29 left in the game.
The Devils iced the win
when Robertson made his
best catch of the night.
This one was a 39-yard
grab in the end zone where he
leaped over a defender,
tipped the ball up into the air


and made the grab on his way
to the turf to make it 25-13
with 1:27 left.
Miller sealed the deal
when he picked off
Flessner's pass on the next
play. from scrimmage,.
"We had some big-time
plays. We kept shooting our-
selves in ' the foot early,"
Bonjokian said. "Hats pff to
Cardinal Mooney. They
could have folded when it
was 12-0 and all of a sudden
it turns into a nightmare for
us. It was a very intense foot-
ball game."

SAT LAST: A government program that helps you...


"Could This Be The

Ultimate Tax Shelter?"


(Up to a $1,500.00 TAX CREDIT* makes

this opportunity almost a 'no-brainer.' Rei


DATELINE: Highlands County

Is the government going to "charge" you
$1,500 if you don't replace your old, Inefficient,
air conditioner?
Some experts have predicted that the cost of
electricity will skyrocket. And since residential
air conditioning is one of the biggest users of
electricity, the new Stimulus Package contains
a substantial incentive for upgrading your old
air conditioner to a new high efficiency model.

USE IT OR LOSE IT?

It seems as though you are going to "pay" for a
new, more efficient, air conditioner whether
you get one or not. If you replace your old
system you might be eligible for up to $1,500
in tax benefits. And, if you wait too long, you
may lose the tax credit, and pay a much higher
utility bill.
One more thing. Next year (2010) a new law
will make most existing air conditioners
effectively obsolete! This is a law banning the
manufacturing of air conditioners using the
refrigerant R-22.'When that happens, I predict
, that the cost of this refrigerant will also
' skyrocket, which means your. old air
conditioner could become very expensive to
repair.

First workshop on invasive exotics was a great beginning


On Sept.18, 40
concerned citizens
gathered at the Bert
J. Harris Agriculture
Center to learn
about some of the
problem plants and
animals that are
invading our beauti-
ful state. Although
the fast growing air News
potato vine was the T
main focus, many Wate
other plants and ani- Cor
Corine
mals that are a
threat to our natural sur-
roundings were also covered.
Attendees walked away with
a better understanding and
knowledge of why these
species are so dangerous to
the environment and some of
the steps they can take to
help out with this ongoing
challenge. -
The attendees of the
workshop asked intelligent
questions and saw, first
hand, what a problem these
species are causing in our
community. According to
some of the comments, many
citizens are already -taking
action and removing these
species around their proper-
ty. Others have reported
sightings of exotic species in
their area to the proper agen-
cies. The goal is to educate
folks and enable them to


identify exotics and
, take part in being
part of the solution
to this monumental
problem.
Thanks to a grant
from the Florida
Exotic Pest Plant
- Council's Kathy
Craddock Burks
From Education Grant, the
he Highlands Soil and
rshed Water Conservation
District is able to
Burgess purchase hundreds
of native plants to exchange
for bags. of exotic air potato
bulbs at the upcoming Air
Potato Exchange Day.
FLEPPC's mission is .to
support the management of
invasive exotic plants in
Florida's natural areas by
providing a forum for the
exchange of scientific, edu-
cational and technical infor-
mation. By providing funds
to purchase native plants, the
HSWCD has the opportunity
to educate and inform the
citizens of Highlands County
about the problems that
these exotic pests are caus-
ing.
The four workshops that
are being held at the
Agriculture Center are
designed to do just that.
These seminars are an
opportunity for the public to


learn about and identify
some of the invasive species
in our area. The workshops
are leading up to the grand
finale of the Air Potato
Exchange Day, which will be
held on Jan. 9 from 10 a.m.
until 2 p.m. All you have to
do is bring in at least one
grocery-sized bag of air
potato bulbs and we'll give
you a beautiful, native plant.
The workshops are
informative, fun and you
could walk away with a nice
plant for your garden. There
is no charge and refresh-
ments are supplied. So, what
have you got to lose? The
next workshop is scheduled
for Oct. 16 at 1 p.m. at the
Agriculture Center.
The plants are being pur-
chased from Lord's Farm
Nursery and there will be
over 20 varieties available.
Whether you want a tree,
shrub, ground cover or flow-
ering plant, you will find
something beautiful for your
garden and landscape.
Because of the generosity of
the nursery owners, gor-
geous native plants are
offered at each workshop as
door prizes.
Each plant that will be
offered at the Exchange Day
is featured in these weekly
articles. If you are curious

and have missed some of the
issues, visit our website at
www.highlandsswcd.org .
On the left site of the home
page click on News from the
Watershed and a list of arti-
cle links will come up. You
can find out about the differ-
ent varieties and which one
is right for your yard.
These invasive exotic
plants and animals are
impacting all of our lives.
They are taking over many
natural areas and even
affecting us in the comfort


of our homes. Recently,
transformers have been
blown because of the air
' potato creeping up the power
line poles and shorting them
out when it rained, causing
electrical outages in those
areas. The fast-growing vine
not only covers trees and
plants, it encroaches on
fences, structures, signs and
any other object that is
located in its path.
Take part in the elimina-
tion of these invaders. Learn
about these exotic species


and get involved in their
removal. For more informa-
tion on invasive, exotic
plants, visit FLEPPC's web-
site at

the next workshop.

Breakfast begins at 9 a.m. (by donation);
meeting starts at 9:45 a.m. (no charge).
Aglow is an inter-denominational

Lord of the Harvest that he will send forth
laborers into his harvest."
The guest speaker is Juanita Folsom. She
has been in ministry since 1979. The Lord
taught her through His Spirit to move in


the gifts, bringing healing to the broken
hearted and setting the captives free by the
Lord Jesus Christ working through her.
She has been bringing forth the gospel on
TV for 10 years. She stands in the offices
as pastor/prophet.
She pastors the Lord's Sentinel
Fellowship Church in Lake Placid. One of

into each new season that God opens up.
Men are invited to celebrate with the
group. (Wheelchair accessible).

Divorce? What is that?


We have a Bible study
once a month for the ladies
in our church. On the third
or fourth Tuesday of the
month, we meet at a local
restaurant at 10 a.m. (By
the way, every lady has an
open invitation to come.)
This past month we
played a game together.
The person who won,
opened her gift and looked
slightly puzzled. In her
hand, she held an old beat
up Webster's Dictionary.
Her instant reply, without a
hint of sarcasm was, "Oh
thank you Jamie, I needed a
new dictionary." Then I
told her to turn to page
253.
In the middle of the page
was a hole. I had carefully
cut out the word "divorce."
I was pointing out that for
the Christian, divorce is not
an option, nor should it be
in our vocabulary. It is a lot
easier to run from a prob-
lem than it is to deal with it
and work through it. I
believe that too many times
people jump too quickly to
the idea of getting a
divorce when problems
arise.


Timeless
Treasures
Jamie Knickerbocker

In the book of Ruth, we
see the well-known passage
that is used during wedding
ceremonies. "For wither
thou goest, I will go; and
where thou lodgest, I will
lodge: thy people shall be
my people, and thy God my
God: Where thou diest, will
I die, and there will I be
buried: the Lord do so to
me, and more also if ought
but death part thee and
me."
This is usually read at
almost every wedding, but
apparently it isn't believed,
nor practiced much any
more. Nearly half of all
marriages end in divorce.
The verse directly after this
famous passage says,
"[Ruth] was stedfastly
minded to go with her
[Naomi] ..." Ruth was
steadfast, and was not
going to change her mind.
If we relate it to marriage,
you could easily say that
"divorce" was n6t in Ruth's
vocabulary.


When I was in labor
with both of my boys, I just
wanted a break. I wanted
the contractions to stop
even for just a little while
so that I could rest. I want-
ed to quit in the middle
because of the pain. But as
any woman knows, you
can't do that. You can't
quit, and you have to work
through it until it is done.
There is no alternative.
It is the same way with
marriage, if we will just
realize that we are meant to
be with our spouse for life,
and face whatever problems
arise, then we can get
through it.
If you need prayer, or
would like someone to talk
to about your marriage, e-
mail the Pastor and Mrs.
Knickerbocker at knick-
print@yahoo.com.
Remember, the local church
is God's support group for
the believer.

Jamie Knickerbocker is the wife
of Pastor Luke Knickerbocker of
Bethel Baptist Church in Lake
Placid, 216 E. Park St. Their
church Web site is visitbethel-
baptist.com.

By CATHY J. SCHREIMA
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - The
Sycamores, the Vanderhofs
and the Kirbys are coming to
Highlands Little Theatre. .
Auditions for the whimsi-
cal Pulitzer Prize-winning
Broadway play, "You Can't
Take It With You," are set for
6:30 p.m. on Sept. 29 and 30
and at 9 a.m. on Oct. 3. The
production, directed by Mike
McMillian, will be performed
Jan. 15-31,2010.
The play tells the. story of
the zany Sycamore house-
hold, presided over by
Grandpa Vanderhof, a former
businessman, who has turned
his back on commerce to
enjoy life. At the Sycamores,
everyone does just what he or
she pleases.
Naturally, when the stuffy,
aristocratic Kirbys come to
the Sycamore's for dinner, the
event is a disaster, capped
with the arrest of everyone in
the household. At first the
Sycamores seem mad, but it is
not long before you realize
that if they are mad, then the
rest of the world is madder.
A large cast of characters
and other volunteers is need-
ed for the second show of the
theatre's 2009-2010 season.,
All auditions will be at HLT
in the Drs. Thakkar Pavilion,
at 356 W. Center Ave.,
Sebring.
The Vanderhoff home is
headed by Grandpa Martin
Vanderhoff, age 70, who
decided in an elevator on his
way to work one day that his
job was not fun. He stayed in
the elevator, went back down
and quit his job. He decided
that he and his family should
pursue whatever in life makes
them happy. Grandpa doesn't
believe in paying taxes. He
lives his life by the philoso-
phy, don't do anything you're
not going to enjoy doing. He
goes to circuses and 'com-
mencements and collects
snakes.


His 50-ish daughter Penny
Sycamore wants to write
plays and paint because it
makes her happy. She is terri-
ble at both but does not care.
She is a playwright because a
typewriter was delivered to
the house by mistake one day.
Her husband, Paul, is a tin-
kerer who manufactures fire-
works in the basement with
the help of his assistant Mr.
De Pinna.
Penny's daughter Essie
makes candy and wants to be
a ballerina. Essie's husband,
Ed, prints slogans he hears
and puts them in the candy
boxes of Essie's customers.
Essie Carmichael, 25-30,
has a Russian dance instructor
who has not improved Essie's
dancing in eight years. Boris
Kolenkhov is in his 40's. He
escaped to America shortly
before the revolution. He has
a very Renaissance attitude,
questions society and is bois-
terous about his beliefs. He
likes Grandpa and enjoys the
free meals he gets there.
Penny and Paul's second
daughter, Alice, in her early
20s, is trying to conform to
proper society rules. The only
"normal" one of the family,
she tends to be a pessimist,
but loves her family no matter
what they are up to. All in all,


she is a sweet girl. She has
become engaged to her boss
Tony Kirby, who is the lead-
ing businessman in town; his
mother is head of proper soci-
ety. Her family embarrasses
Alice but Tony thinks that
they are great. Tony insists
that their families meet. Alice
is going to get her family to
conform for this meeting, but
Tony brings his parents a
night early so they can meet
the real family and their
