AVON PARK --- Jixst weeks after
thousands of Highlands County
Residents lined up .at the tax collec-
tor's offices to renew their vehicle
registrations before steep new fees
took effect, Democrats in the state
House of Representatives have filed
legislation to repeal the fees that took
effect Sept. 1.
Because of the new law, vehicle
registration fees jumped from $100 to
$225 and other motorist-related fees
also increased, including the cost of


7100 bills proposed for next session


Bryan said Thursday. "It was just bad
timing on their part."
In an earlier News-Sun article'
Bryan estimated that the merease
would "cost every man, woman and
child in Highlands County $54.87
more per year."
That adds up to be more than $5.6
million in cash leaving Highlands
County in 2010, according to Bryan's
staff,* and that means less discre-
tionary income for those who shop,

went from $20 to $48.
. Highlands County Tax Collector
Charles L. Bryan took the time to
encourage everyone to "take advan-
tage of the savings by completing
their transactions" before the rates
were increased and over 3,000 tax
payers registered early and paid .the
previous rate for two years.

increased the fees to begin with,"

AVON PARK Progress Energy Florida
is seeking a $500 million annual rate increase
that could further hurt low income residents
in Highlands County.
The St. Petersburg-based subsidiary of
Progress Energy, headquartered in Raleigh,
N.C., waits to raise base rates $14.18, includ-
ing $4.52 already in effect on an interim
es basis, for a typical residential customer using
1,000 kilowatt honis a month.
The power company serves more than 1.6
.
million homes, business and other customers


in 35 counties across central and north
Florida.
Progress lawyer R. Alexander Glenn told
Florida's Public Service Commission that the
company needs higher rates to make up for
falling sales as it seeks new capital for up to
$6 billion in major improvements, not count-
ing a planned $17 billion nuclear power plant
in Levy County.
The power giant also told commissioners
that the rate increase would increase their
profit margin to 12.54 percent, enough to

aany against
training
center to be
held today
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssan.com
FORT MEYERS -
Environmental activist
Ellen Peterson is sched-
uled to hold a press con-
ference and public infor-
mation meeting this morn-
ing in front of the develop-
er's office in Cape Coral
who wants to place a mili-
tary training center in
Highlands County.
The rally was scheduled
for 9 a.m. at 3818 Del
Prado Blvd., in Cape
Coral, and Peterson hopes
to rally support for her
group that opposes the
facility.
Lee County real estate
developer Greg W. Eagle
has proposed a training
center near Venus that
could host up to 1,000 stu-
dents at a time,1ive fire
from military grade
weapons, and a 6,000-foot
runway for jet traffic.
The Eagle National
Security Training Center
will cause, according to
Peterson, a significant
negative environmental
impact to Fisheating Creek
and possibly "pollute and
deplete an important fresh
water source serving all of
South Florida."
The state's Department
of Community Affairs
(DCA) raised several
issues about the proposed
training facility in August
of last yearand along with
environmental issues,
Peterson, board president
of Save our Creeks, raised
questions during a
Highlands County
Commission meeting in
August of this year about
the use of the training
facility by "mercenaries."
The government is get- .
ting out the business of
training mercenaries to
train here and return to
their own country to maith
and kill their own people.
That relieves the govern-
ment from that responsi-
bility," Peterson said.
The public input for
Highlands County -resi-
dents was postponed until
Oct. 5 county commission
meeting.

State's first weekend 13asic Law

Enforcement class graduates


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Monday
evening's graduation cere-
many had special signifi-
cance for the 13 cadets in
South Florida Community
College's Basic Law
Enforcement Class 227.
After training every week-
end for the past year, they
can finally reacquaint them-
selves with simple pleasures
ilke sleeping late, attending
a son's football game, or
even mowing the lawn.
. The cadets rearranged
work schedules, put aside
family obligations and sacri-
ficed leisure time to accom-
plish something unique.
They are the first graduates
of a weekend Basic Law
Enforcement class to be
offered by any police acade-
my in Florida. *
"No other law enforce-
ment academy in the state
has offered this course on
the weekends as far as we
can tell," said Richard
Morey, coordinator,
Criminal Justice. "fnd these
students got through itarith
a 100 percent passing rate."
Robert Weronik, the class
leader, was instrumental in
getting the weekend class
off the ground. Before he
became the corporate crisis
manager for General
Electric, Weronik spent 15
years as a police officer in
Connecticut. He wanted to
become certified in Florida,
but his full-time work
schedule left weekends as
the only time he could
devote to education.
Various law enforcement
organizations told him he
was not likely to find a

.
can find the students for it
we'll do it '"
Not one to be daunted by
a challenge, Weronik began
helping Morey recruit stu-
dents, and came across
Mark Steighner, who had
similar desires. As a young
man, he had been a deputy
for the St. Lucie County
Sheriff's Office. Now in his
40s with a family and three
businesses, he Wanted to

ment for the students and the
college," said Steighner, who
gathered support for the
endeavor from political lead-
ers and law enforcement
organizations. "Part of the
challenge was convincing
people it would work. Bob
and I knew it would, if we
could get the bodies to fill
the seats."
They did. On Sept. 27,
.2008, 13 cadets arrived at
the SFCC Public Service
Academy for its first week-
end Basic Law Enforcement
class. Among them were
young people looking to
enter the profession as well
as former officers, business
people and attorneys seeking
volunteer and part-time
opportunities. The majority
came from Miami, Tampa,
Sarasota and other cities
more than 100 miles away.
To reflect the distances
they traveled in pursuit of a


common purpose, the class
adopted the motto:
"Statewide Unified."
The routine was grueling.
The cadets met on Saturdays
and Sundays for one year,.
missing holidays like
Mother's Day, Father's Day
and Easter. In addition to
tuition, they bore the costs
of lodging in hotels and eat-
ing in local restaurants. In.
the spring, many used vaca-
tion time to attend a week-
long unit on first aid at the
Public Service Academy^
Steighner calculates that
he traveled more than
14,000 miles between Pasco
and Highlands counties just *
to complete the class.
"I got a lot of support
from my family and my
employees," said Steighner.
"My wife basically said, 'I
don't want to be sitting in
my rocking chair someday
listening to you complain
that you didn't do this.' I .
missed my sons' football ,
and baseball games. My 12-
year-old read Florida

At this time we are in a drought
cycle that even this sumtrier's rains
have not quenched. In Florida,
water is more than a resource. It is a
precious commodity that must be
treated with respect, not taken for
granted.
If higher water rates cause a fam-
ily to install new washers in their
faucets or to turn off the taps while
brushing their teeth, that is a good
thing, saving }vater as well as
money.
Like it or not, we must become
self-aware. We live within nature,
not apart from it.
If there is any comfort, it is that
the rates were not raised higher _
experts had recommended a 42 per-
cent hike and that the typical
monthly increase will be $7 for
sewer and about $3 for water.
We sympathize with those whose
spending power has crashed, for
whom $10 is significant, and who
face agonizing decisions medi-
cine? food? oil change? we are
right there with you, counting pen-
nies as well. *
If there is a reason to be angry, it
is becituse the city has delayed so
long in facing these realities, not
that it is finally dealing with them-


Ill RD OCOnomy where people have lost jobS,
had their wages or salary frozen and still have
.
to deal with rising prices, it is easy to under-
stand the emotions expressed at the Avon Park
City Council meeting Monday night.


The council chamber was full of
angry and upset people, in revolt
over the 30 percent rise in water and
sewer rates.
But understanding does not mean
agreement.
The sad fact is, the rise in water
and sewer rates is long overdue.
While some of us here at the paper
live in Avon Park and will feel the
same pinch as those who turned out
Monday, we are agreed the raise in
rates is justified and necessary.
We commend Mayor Sharon
Schuler and council members
George Hall and Joe Wright for
weathering the storm and passing
the increases in the face of emotion-
al opposition. .
While we understand their moti-
vation, we respectfully criticize
Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray and
council member AlJoe Hinson for
voting with their hearts instead of
their heads.


The only responsible choice was
to raise the rates and the council
vote should have been unanimous.
Here are the difficult realities:
The city's- water and sewer depart-
ments, which at the least should
break even, have been running at a
substantial loss for some time. In
addition, $175,000 is owed the city
in overdue bills at a time when the
city faces serious budget shortfalls
- personnel layoffs, while post-
poned, remain a possibility in the
future.
The time had come to do the,
unpleasant, but essential howev-
er distasteful.that was. The welfare
of the city as a whole depends on
mature choices.
Th&re is another consideration
that cannot be overlooked. .
We here in Florida live in a state
subject to extremes all too.often
we are either drowning or dying
from thirst.

Health care bm is very scary
Editor:
Public option plans cannot compete with
government subsidized healthcare. If your
employer provides healthcare insurance or you
have a private plan you pay for yourself, the
government with tax payer money will pro-
vide this care for less money, forcing over-
time, private and public plans into a single
payer government run system. .
Obama knows this; that's why he's pushing
for a public option.
A single payer system would mean com-
plete and total government control. Public
option is a fast-track to a single payer plan.
If Obama's intentions were to help lo*
income families, or people with no health
insurance, or people who cannot get coverage'
he has had six months to come up with such a
plan or bill. Instead, we have a bill of over a

to the payment of health care providers, the
total cost to patients would be greatly
reduced.
Only when our elected representatives begin
to look to the interests of the people rather
than the lobbyists and those who fill their
campaign coffers with an expectation of "pay
back" will we have a system of care with the.
interests of the patient as paramount.

CC grrent%, t t oilers th a e
premiums, are little more than more subsidies
for the insurance industry,7thinly disguised as
help for consumers. It's past time to stop this
charade and take insurances out of health care.
Randy Ludacer
Lake Placid

The problem is policies, not race
Editor:
Over the last several months as President
Obama's ratings have plummeted and his-sup-
port for many of his programs is in decline,
the idea has been promulgated that lingering
racism is to blame. Even, former Presidents
Carter and Clinton have publicly stated their
concurrence with this view. Most of .the major
. network TV anchors and political analysts
have also attempted to make the case for this
ridiculous argument-
If this was a valid argument, President
Obama would not have been elected in the
first place.
Just a few months ago, when he and his
supporters had won the election there was no
talk of racism. In fact, public opinion held
that he woidd bethe "great united," the one
who would finally britig everyone together.
Sadly, his actions, words and beliefs have
resulted in just the opposite.
It would be so nice, simple and easy if we
could blame the current level of discontent
and unrest on the fact that President Obama is
African-American (Well, at least half, right?
Isn't his mom Caucasian?). However, there
really is a much simpler reason his poli-


cies, beliefs and actions. *
The fact of the matter is that many of us
don't think the government has any business
owning General Motors, or Chrysler, or banks,
or financial investment firms. We don't
believe the government should be involved in
student loans or in home mortgages and cer-
tainly not in health care. We don't believe that
the government should be bailing out private
businesses nor determining how much some-
one makes.
It is none of your business, President
Obama! We don't believe that there should be
30-plus czars who are accountable to no one.
We don't believe that the number of border
patrol agents should be cut, particularly at a
time when the FBI has discovered numerous
terrorist plots right here in our country. We
don't believe that our Commander-in-Chief
(whose most significant resume entry is that
of a community organizer) should ignore the
troop level.requests from the general he
selected to run military operations in the
Middle East. We don't believe that he should

o 'llise ck cm tPoland IseratelshW certainly
stantly be apologizing for our country.
I just wish one time, in an international
speech, that our president would stand up and
with unashamed pride, proclaim the greatness
of our country. No other country in the history
of the world has fought in and won so many
wars without keeping any of the conquered
lands. What would Europe look like today if
so many members of "the greatest generation"
hadn't answered the call to fight for freedom?
Which country is it that responds first in the
wake of devastating natural disasters all over
the world? Which country is it that has elevat-
ed the standard of living for so many others
all over the world? It is this. great country, the
United States of America!
President Obama, and those of you who
support him, stop taking the easy way out.
Stop blaming racism. Racism has nothing to
do with it. It is his ideology, his liberal views,
his belief that more government programs are
the answer, that more government intervention
into our private lives is the solution. Not too
long ago, President Obama's secretary of .
state, Hillary Clinton, said that dissension is
one of America's greatest and most important
political traditions and sacred rights. I could-
ri't agree more.
Many of us are exercising that right.
President Obama, we disagree with you and
are going to do all we.legally and ethically
can to see that you don't get your way. Not
because of your racial heritage or origin but
because e disagree with your policies.

Insurance industry partly to blame
Editor:
Wearing the mask of free enterprise and fly-
ing the colors of "the private sector" health
insurance companies, all 1,400 of them, now
rant and slander attempts to deprive them of
their ill deserved billions and call "single pay"
and public option programs socialism, the end
of democracy as we know it, while they
syphon dollars for profit and payroll out of a
system that should be devoted to paying med-
ical bills.
Corrupted by huge campaign contributions
and promises of more to follow,.congressmen
flock to their banner blaming rising costs in
health care on everything except their inflated
insurance profits, the insurance bandits bribe
their way through the halls of Congress con-
tent that their bought and paid for legislators
will frustrate all attempts to represent the peo-
ple and pass a health care plan in the public
interests.
An army of lobbyists in the employ of the
insurance and drug industries swarm around

SEBRING After 10
years of operation, the

on the corner of Kenilworth
Blvd. and Roseland Ave., has
run out of room.
"There's not even wall
space left," said Howard
Fleetwood, who has stepped
down as presidenthaving led
the organization since its
opening.
Tony LaMorte will be tak-
ing over the helm.
Fleetwood, LaMorte and
interested parties gathered at
the museum on Sunday for an
organizational meeting about
the expansion.

possible at 784-7285.
Weronik isn't quitting his
day job, but he will put his
training to good ute. "This
enables me to volunteer in
my community, which is a
missing piece of my life
right now. I have the career.
I did this so.I could fulfill a
part of my life that is being
unmet."
Steighner is.becoming a
part-time reserve deputy
with the Pasco County
Sheriff's Office. Part of his
mission will be to build up
its reserve program, some-
thing he feels passionately
about. "I hope when it's my
time to stop volunteering, I
will have a lot of gray hairs
on my head, and I can turn
over my badge to my grand-
son."
As an outgrowth of the
class, members formed the
Volunteer Florida Officers
Alliance, which is planning
to hold its first conference at
SFCC in February 2010.
Steighner is starting a schol-
arship for training reserve
officers.
"From the bottom of my
heart, I can say that all this
happened because of Mr.
Morey," Steighner said. "He
made sure it stayed on track.
Every weekend, he was there
for us. His compensation is
that he got*to see 13 people,
smiling and happy because
we got through this process."
"This class was excep-
tional liecailsh of the com-
mitment they had to make,"
Morey said. "They held up
their end of the bargain."
The graduation service
proved to be a family affair
as well as an- affectionate
parting. The invocation was
delivered by retired Major
James Murray from the
Charlotte County Sheriff's
Office, whose grandson,
John Murray, was among the
graduates. New graduate Ted
Silva beamed with pride
when a fellow cadet received
the firearms award for
achieving a perfect shooting
score. The cadet was his son,
Kenny Silva.

She also said that as
stressful as it is, modern life
takes a toll.
"Stress doesn't just affect
the self," she said. "Studies
have shown it can affect five
,,
generations.
Crum advises that people
should have annual mental
health check-ups just as they
have physical check-ups. She
added that children should
also have annual screenings
because stress, depression
and anxiety are problems for
many of them. "Stressedskids
can become short-tempered
and have an attitude," she
said. They can also develop
organic problems.
She pointed to the large

nuemobber of yohu pd e who
"More (children) than ever
before," she said.
Nutrition is part of the
equation.
Parents who are highly
stressed, depressed and lack-
ing energy, for example, may
simply order a pizza or rely
on fast food, which in the
long run impacts on their
children.
Crum's particular field of
specialty, neuropsychology,
is the study of the interaction
between the physical and the
mental known as bio feed-
back.
Using new techniques, like
brain mapping and breathing
exercises Crum said she can
help individuals without
resorting to medications.
Diseases like demeiltia,
depression and anxiety in
particular respond to bio
feedback treatments.
The emphasis,.Crum said,
is on developing powers of
concentration and relaxation.
This is done through the use
of programs similar to video
games where patients inter-
act, making things happen -
moving objects, for example'
or increasing the size of a
colored bar by focusing
on them. Breathing exercises
. also are a part of the pro-

gra'Breathing is so essential,"
Crum said. "Many people
don't realize they aren't
breathing properly."
In support of National
Mental Health Awareness
.
Week, Crum is offering free
screenings and information
forums including presenta-
tions on stress and its effects.
"These screenings are part
of the first step in determin-
ing whether there is a cause
for concern for yourself or a
loved one," she said.
Crum suggests those peq-
ple who have lost pleasure in
things they used to enjoy'
experience severe mood
.
swings, have trouble eating
or sleeping, are keyed up and
anxious all the time, or suffer
from unexplained aches and
pains should consider visit- .

fessional,

"It's not fair to lo\v
income people who work
every day. You cut where

tu a eand you st Icans
gone from just under $200
at the beginning of the year
to $420 last month. You just
can't change companies if
you don't like the rates,
there are no other options,"
Bateman said.
Bateman has tried for
assistance, but the money is
not there for everyone.
I applied for utility
.
assistance, but there is only
enough money to go around
each month. I was not on
the list this month. I am not
sure what I am going to
do," Bateman said.
Hardest 'hit may be the
local businesses.
"If they raise the' rates,
the general public will suf-
fer fop it twice. Oncebwhen

home and a second time
- when every business has to
raise their prices to meet
the new expenses," said
Clary Musselman, owner of
Musselman's Appliance
and T.V. at 4320 U.S. 27 N
in Sebringi
"People are struggling to
pay bills now because of
the recession. If they raise
the rates, it is just going to
get harder. You cannot
function without electricity,
and there is only so much
discretionary cash out there
right now. A rate increase
will take away a large share
of that discretionary cash,"
Musselman said.
The hearings on the rate
increase could last up to 10
days, but the final decision
will not be available until
December.

according to statements
from the hearings.
. "Simply put, our sales
are not covering the cost to
provide reliable electrical
services in the manner that
this commission or our cus-
tomers expect," Glenn said.
The commission 1s con-
.
sidering a separate proposal
that would add $2.38 per
1,000 kilowatt hours to pay
for building the Levy
County nuclear plant.
Glenn said the public
counsel's proposal would
hamper the company's abil-
ity to attract capital by
reducing cash flow and
weakening its credit rating.
"It's difficult to imagine
how even an irrational
investor would invest in
such a company, Glenn

"'t some in Highlands
County, any time is the
wrong time for Progress
Energy Florida to seek a 25
percent rate increase, but
that sentiment is especially
strong in a recession.
"That's crazy, and unfair.-
People are getting laid off
everywhere and they need
more profits. Our bill has
gone up from $240 last
month to $275 this month,
and we are going without
lights at night," said Avon
Park resident Angie Smith. .
"My bill has gone up
everymonth since the start
of this year, aed we are try-
mg to save money every-
where we can. This is
ridiculous, especially right .
now," Smith added.
Crystal Bateman, anoth-
er Avon park resident, had
the same outlook.


vehicles and current Saturn owners will be
able to service their cars at the dealership
until it closes. .
Afterwards, according to GM, owners
will be able to go to certified GM dealers for
service and repairs, like the one owned by
the AJAN across the street from the Saturn
dealership, Elwell said.
. The Saturn brand was first unveiled by
GM in 1983 but the project was slow to
develop, officially launching in 1990.
It featured the iconic tag-line "a different
kind of car company" and people were
attracted by its low-key showrooms and no-
haggle pricing.
This approach to the business impacted
local sales consultant Ferron Jackson, who
started detailing the cars in 2005. He has
been in sales for Saturn for the past three
years. .
"What really drew me in was another
salesman told me the philosophy Saturn has,
the way they do business," he said. "It's not
about making a sale, it's about making a
friendship."
For a man who deeply identified with the
Saturn brand .and ideology, making the
change to work at another dealer shouldn't
be as easy as a lateral-move.
"This is my life," he said. "I have such a
strong passion for Saturn, they way they treat
theif Bustomers, the loyalty, the friendships
... this is where I fit. This is my personality."


Continued from page 1A
lic relations for AJAN.
Elwell said the local Saturn dealership will
continue to sell 2010 model-year Saturns that
are scheduled to be delivered in addition to
the 15 or 20 vehicles currently in stock.
GM will stop making Saturns as soon as
possible, but no layoffs are expected, said
GM spokeswoman Sherrie Arb. Saturns are
made at two plants in the U.S.; one in
Michigan, the other in Kansas; and one plant
in Mexico.
"Those plants produce products for other
brands, and $ve think we can increase volume
. on those products that will meet market
demand," Arb said.
Local job loss is also expected to be
absorbed by moving the jobs to .tlie other
dealerships in AJAN, Elwell said. -
"Everybody is going to be fine," he said.
Plans for the Saturn building are already in
the works, with "a bunch of ideas brewing,"
he said.
The Toyota building might expand into a
superstore-type dealer using the new space,
Scion might get its own building, or a large
lot with pre-owned cars may occupy the
building once Saturn moves out.
"It's going to wind down ... it's not some-
thing that is going to happen in the next
month or two,". Elwell said. "Customers
won't see a difference."

nice with International
Olympic Committee mem-

hogging the piggy bank.

things over with the dis-

U.S. Olympic
Committee leaders are on
their best behavior as the
host city vote for the 2016
Summer Games approaches
Friday. .
If Chicago wins, a lot of
the USOC's problems
become inore manageable.
If Chicago loses, well,
it's going to be a bumpy
next few months, with
tricky financial issues and
questions of direction like-
ly coming to the forefront.
What having the games

Dragons in the game. during
the second set, coming from
behind to barely squeak past
the determined Avon Park
pla'y
"/ think we definitely
should have had that second
game said Avon Park's
coach Stephanie Devlin."But
we have to learn to capitalize
when we are ahead, and we
didn't do that."
"They have a couple of
power houses up front, and
we did not respond. We cer-
tainly played a defensive
game. We've got to get our
offense rolling," Devlin said..
Middle hitter Heather Bass
was able to hold the line
defensively for the Red
Devils.
"Heather had some great
blocks, and we were respond-
ing defensively. We were
strong in practice last week
offensively, but did not show
it in the game," Devlin said.
Bass held up her end with
five blocks, two kills, and
one ace, and teammate Tia
Nobles helped up front with
four kills and two blocks.
The two teams were back
in action Thursday night with
Lake Placid traveling to
Hardee and the Lady Devils
hosting Mulberry.

offensive play allowed the
Lady Dragons to prevail at
home 25-13, 25-22, 25-16
over Avon Park in their sec-
ond district match-up of the
season. ,
"Avon Park came to play,
that's for dir'e, but we were
late in getting our offensive
game rolling. That was the
ugliest win I have seen in a
While. I am just glad to see
that one end," said Lake
Placid's veteran volleyball
Coach Marilyn Jones.
"Sierra (Weaver) and
Kayla (Summerfield) domi-
nated on offense once they
got their game going.,But it
took us a while," Jones
said."Our servers were just
not there until late. It was the
third game before our serves
started coming."
Weaver would tally five
kills for the night, and eight
aces with her jump serve.
Summerfield captured
three kills and one ace.
Lake Placid jumped out
front early and wrapped the
first game up handily, keep-
ing Avon Park shuffling from
transition to transition, but
Clid not pick up very many
aggressive kills.

we can't do it all in a day,"
Fasulo said. "But I think we
have made progress, and
we're going to continue to
do the work."
Hosting a games would
accelerate the process'
"It would offer us a huge
opportunity to build on what
we've ah-eady done," Fasulo
said.
Then there's the simmer
ing tensions back home.,
After going through CEOs
and presidents like Kleenex
in the early part of the -
decade including two who
were swept out in the
USOC's own ethics scandal
- the USOC found relative
stability under the leadership
of Ueberroth and CEO Jim
Scherr, a former Olympic
wrestler who was well-liked
in the movement.
But Ueberroth stepped
down last fall, and the tran-
sition has been, to put it
mildly, messy.


Scherr was dumped in
March and replaced by
Streeter, a move openly
questioned.by leaders of the
national governing bodies.
While everyone is saying
the right things now, it's not
clear this is a permanent
truce.
Bring the games back to
the United States for the first
time since 1996, though, and
it will be hard to argue with
the direction Probst and
Streeter have taken the .
USOC.
"This is our long-term
commitment," Fasulo said.
"We have to be able to
demonstrate we're just not
the words but have actions
behind the words and we
believe in this. And we
believe in this for the right
reasons.
"Chicago offers that
opportunity."


It's been a flashpoint for
years, getting so contentious
earlier in 2009 that it threat-
ened to derail Chicago's bid.
Streeter arid (JSOC chair-
man Larry Probst managed
to negotiate a truce, agreeing
to consider paying several
million dollars to the IOC in
the short term.in exchange
for delaying.further talks
until 2013.
But the issue is far from
settled.
Should Chicago get the
games, the USOC will be
able to operate from a posi-
tion of strength.
Negotiations for U.S. TV
rights for 2014 and 2016
will begin after the'vote, and
it's safe to say games in .
Chicago would be an attrac-
tive property to American
broadcasting companies.
- In fact, media mogul
Rupert Murdoch recently
indicated that Fox wouldn't
submit a bid unless the 2016


Games were in Chicago.
Corporate sponsorships
would likely be higher for a
U.S. games, too.
Former USOC chairman
Peter IJeberroth said last
year that revenues havE gone
up every time the games
Ita e been on (J.S. soil,.the
fogic being that American .
advertisers will pay more for
an Olympics in their back-
yard.
"It's a huge win financial-
ly, from a sponsorship stand-
point," current USOC chair-
man Larry Probst agreed.
If the games go to Rio or
Madrid or Tokyo, however,
the IOC could force the rev-
enue issue again, knowing it
will be getting more money
from those markets and less
from the United States.
Then there's the question
of influence. :
After almost 17 years with
a seat on the powerful IOC
executive board, the United


States lost its spot in
February 2006 in the post-
Salt Lake City fallout.
There was a long stretch
in which building relation-
ships with other IOC mem-
bers simply wasn't a priority.
Robert Fasulo, who took
over as the organization's
chief of international rela-
tions in February 2006,
remembers going to the
Asias Games that year and
talking to a Lebanese
Olympic official who, in 11
years, had gever before met
with a USQC member.
Fasulo arE Bob Ctyrtlik,
the USOC's'vice chair for
international relations, have
made strides to change that.
Earlier this month, for
example, the USOC
announced it Wrould again
.
offer a trammg program for
coaches from around the
world,
"It's a big world, we still
have a lot of work to do aird


Continued from 1B
bodies have had personality
clashes recently.
"In international sport,
one of the hallmarks of it,
for better or for worse, is the
stability of the leadership,"
said Dick Pound a longtime
IOC member from Canada.
"A lot of the folks in leader-
ship positions have been
there for a long time, so it's
a myste to some to have
this reo ing door in the
United States."
The main issue between
the two bodies is money.
The IOC shares revenue
from its top sponsorship pro-
gram and TV deals with the
205 national committees.
The USOC currently
receives 20 percent of the
sponsorship money and
12.75 percent of the TV
cash, and there is a lot of .
point-counterpoint as to why
those figures are fair or
unfair.

the last Lady Panther lead

loss.
'This makes it tough now
for us to get to state,"
Crawford said. "If we had .,
won this, we'd have more
control over it, but now it's a
out of our hands."
What they can do is get 0
back on track, take care of a
business the rest of the way
and hope that the chips then r;

much-needed match to the
State College of Florida

Mantateeas o i for
us to come out and play the
way we did head coach
Kim Crawford said of the
three-set defeat. "We've been
playing much better lately,
we played a lot better than
this at Hillsborough
(Thursday, Sept. 24). I can't
explain it and there's not
much I can say that's posi-
tive."
Even so, all three.sets were
close enough that a better
effort could have turn the
results right around.
Down 24-17 in the opener,


a Kalee Schlabach kill and

kept hope alive before
Manatee managed to get the
winning point across.
Again in the second set, a
State College run had opened
up a 20-14 lead, but the
Panthers clawed their way
back to get within 24-22.
But again, the rally came
up short in the 25-22 loss.
The tide seemed to turn in
the third set, with South
Florida storming out to a 12-
4 advantage with Schlabach
serving up an ace, Bailey
crushing a kill and Driscoll
coming up with consecutive
scores on a kill and block.
The Manatees, however,

has even come close to
them. We were disappointed
the first time we played
them, because we know we
should have won. This time,
we thought it would be a lot
harder (with Barnes back),
but Anna just shut her down.
She kept blocking her, frus'
treating her it was just a
road-raging fight."
And though they would
come out, overall, on the
short end of this fight, the
battle has been joined.
"It was hard to lose to
them again, npdddon'tnethean

last game," West said. "But
we've shown that this is a
pretty even match-up. They
have some big hitters and
(Barnes) is a powerhouse'
but we played smart and we
executed some things we
talked about. It's hard,
though, because as well as
we played it still wasn't
good enough."
Which only adds fuel tq
the fire.
"When we win Thursday
night (against Winter
Haven), that should set us in
second (in district)," West
said. "That should put us in
position to see them again
late in the district tourna-
ment.,,
