Parkway route
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING A report from the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection
confirms samples of debris taken from
Commerce Avenue at the Sebring Parkway
have tested positive for asbestos.
According to the report dated Oct. 15
from Dove Environmerital Corp. in Miami,
the samples show positive restilts for both
chrysotile and crocidolite asbestos.
More than 20 samples were taken on
Oct. 9 by Sherrill Colliver, the Department
of Environmental Protection's (DEP)
Enforcement Agent.
Four of those samples were mailed to
Dove, and each one ,showed 20 percent
chrysotile and 15 percent crocidolite
asbestos.
Asbestos is the generic name for six nat-
urally occurring minerals that have been
used in commercial products for their
strength, flexibility, low electrical conduc-
tivity and resistance to heat and chemicals.
Asbestos is generally made up of fiber
bundles which easily separate into long,

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Ford
Motor Company and Alan
Jay Ford Lincoln-Mercury
have announced that
Sebring High School will'
be the lucky beneficiary of
up to $6,000 during the
"Drive One 4UR School"
event from 3-9 p.m. today
at Firemen's Field.
Just one .of the many
events during the Blue
Streaks homecoming fes-
tivities, this program will
donate $20 for every test
drive during that particular
day, up to $6,000 (300 test
drives)
In addition, everyone
who takes a test drive will
receive a free round of golf
at Sun 'N Lakes Golf Club.
Additional prizes are avail-
able as well. No purchase is
necessary at all, as this is
strictly a fundraising event
for the school.
In addition, everyone
who takes a test drive that
day will be eligible to win a
4 gigabyte Microsoft Zune
with videolphoto capabili-
ties or a Magellan GPS.
"This is an outstanding
opportunity to help support


the Sebring High School
Athletic Program. We're
very excited about helping
them raise some funds, plus
it gives an excellent oppor-
tunity to showcase 10-12
new Fords, Lincolns and
Mercurys" said Rufus
Brown, Alan Jay Ford of
Sebring's general sales
manager.
"It's a win-win for the
whole community, espe-
cially with all of the activi-
ties going on for
Homecoming that day.
Alan Jay Ford Lincoln-

U.S. Highway 27 South in
Sebring and is one of 10

Currently, the Alan Jay
Automotive Network part-
ners with dozens of local
organizations annually,
including the "Wheels for

Chambers of Commerce,
the American Cancer

others.

My first vent is towards
the city of Sebring coun-
cil. The city of Sebring
does not need new signs
on all of its structures
and vehicles to celebrate
its 100 years. It's not a
cost my taxes should be
used for in these hard
economic times. I think
the council has lost sight
and good sense that in
hard times it is people,
not things that are
important,
I think saving the
$20,000 job of the
Sebring Historical
Society'sarchivistwould
be much more worthy
100 years celebrating
cause and would show
true regards for the
things of value our
people. One hundred
years from now it will be
the continued work of
the city's historical soci-
ety and historian that will
be remembered and not
the sign. The historian is
the one who does keep
the history alive and
speak about the council
of these times 100 years
from now.
My second vent is
about this ungodly cost
for window covers for a
defunct building that's

this code-breaking build-
ing should be demolition.

Wild, in his commence-
ment address, spoke about
the difference between for.
mal education and learning.
Learning goes on outside
the classroom, he reminded
the audience. "Life is not
perfect, we have to learn to
adapt. We didn't get here ,
because someone else did
the job.
"Life is continuing for
all of us, these people are
not sitting around waiting
to die. We acknowledge
what they've done, what
they have accomplished."
Then Wild left everyone
with a final thought. He
said he'd seen it written in
a restaurant. "Keep your
eye on the doughnut not
on the hole."


with a wide smile. *
Thornburg's mother
taught her to look on the
positive side of life.
One day she came home
and told her father she had
flunked a math test.
"Try to be more posi-
tive," Mary said her mother
had told her,
"I'm positive I flunked
the math test," she replied.
Ouellette received a spe-
cial award. Nearly unable
to walk when he arrived at
the Palms, he tackled the
rigorous therapy program
and worked with persist-
ence. As a result on
Monday, Oct. 12, a he was
able to walk frpm the thera-
py center to his wife's
apartment without help.

Stewait insisted that she looks at all the

not let the amount of people speaking set

Unemployment

"The recovery is coming
slowly, but it is coming,"
Lorenzo said.
"The latest unemployment
figures confirm that the eco-
nomic downturn continues to
impact a significant number of
Floridians and businesses.
However, a reduction in
employers announcing clos-
ings oi- large-scale layoffs is a
positive sign of Florida's grow-
ing economic stability,"
Lorenzo said from Tallahassee.
Florida's seasonally adjusted
unemployment rate for
September is 11.0 percent.
This represents 1,012,000
jobless individuals out of the
9,193,000 available in the
labor force.
Despite the optimism,
according to Lorenzo's office,
the number of job losses in
Florida statewide is still a stag-
gering 360,400 -three times
the population of Highlands
County.
And with the state and coun-
ty budget season ending in
September, expectations are
for the percentage to increase
as laid off local and state
employees hit the unemploy-
ment lines in October.
Henry County still ranks
among those hardest hit, climb-
ing to 16.8 from 14.1 percent
just a year ago.
Neighboring county DeSoto
also saw an increase to 11.7
percent from 11.3 month, but
Hardeedroppedto 12.6percent
from 12.7 percent in August.

Winter Haven.
Then again, it may have
been from wind hum.
It seemed like the wind
was blowing 100 miles-per-

said. "It was -windy and
cold, which made the play-

But the conditions were
the same for the whole

level playing.field ended as
Sebring topped its' nearest
challenger, George Jenkins,
by 24 strokes, 370 to 394.
Consider, with four play-

that's six strokes per player

AVon Park lady duffers

take first district title


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.cont
The Avon Park girl'sugolf
team has achieved its first-ever
district title, and are moving
on to the 5-1A Regional
Tournament at Eagle G If
Club close to Tampa.
"This week has been
extremely exciting," said AvoIf
Park's golf coach Suzie
Gentry. We have played so
well, and the boys and girls are
both going to regional, and I
might get a peek at Greg
(Gentry)."
Greg is coach Gentry's son,
and is tied with fellow Devil
Clay Davis for lowest strokes
coming into regional,

M von Park se ior h
Hunnicutt lead the Lady
Devils, carding a 94 and 95,
respectively, and Katelynn
Stoll (113), Angela Batenian
(117), and freshman Lindsey
10offat (121) all round out the
roster for regional play.
"Sarah and Paige both have
experience playing at this
tevel, so that should be a big


help," Gentry said. "But we
have a pretty strong team over-
all "
Although there is one team
from the St. Pete area that has
not turned in scores, Avon Park
is currently sitting as the sec-
ond seed with a 419 off of
District 13-lA Tournament
play'
According to Gentry, Avon

Lake Placid 3-3; Clewiston 2-3
Last Week
Lake Placid:The Dragons saw their
offense explode in a 45-27 win at
John Carroll.
Clewiston: Had its bye-week. .
Game Notes
a RB Caleb Jones has 746 rushing
yards through six games.
a Two of Clewiston's losses were to
Glades Central, ranked first in the
state in Class 2A, and Glades Day, #5
in Class lB.
Coach Speak
lake Placid's Jason Holden:
"Clewiston is a very solid team,
extremely disciplined and they are
huge up front.They play a heck of a
schedule, with the Glades schools and
American Heritage in Plantation,
who's always one of the top programs
in the state. So they're much better
than their record shows. It will be an
interesting game and our kids will be
ready for it.We're playing at a higher
level all over the field than we have in
a real long time.

questionable with a balky back.
Coach Speak
Sebring's Jared Hamlin:"I'll never
say a team is easy pickings.They're a
team so the will always be a
challenge. Celebration moved the ball
pretty well against Lake Nona last
week and had it mside the 20 a few
times, but just couldn't get it in,
They've got a quick little running
back.With Homecoming week, there
are always distractions and ways to
lose focus. But we're a focused team
that is anxious to get on the field as a
whole again."

posted by All Saints, as the
Devils also had three of the
top four individual scores
of the tournament.
Davis Clay and Greg
Gentry each fired a 79, for
the top-two scores in the
crowded, 13-team field, and
Evan Danzey had the
fourth-best score of the day

News-Sun reports
The Sebring boys of the
links joined the Lady Blue
Streaks in heading on to
regionals after a strong dis-
trict showing, tying with
Bartow on the Yellow
Jackets home course to
advance from the District 9-
2A Tournament Tuesday.
Colin Walkup lead the
way for the Streaks, firing a
78 for the third best score
among the overall field,
with Tyler Sanders and
Blake Liles each carding
81s and Sean Gardner
rounding out the Sebring


scoring rounds with an 86.
These proved just enough
to draw even with Bartow's
top four scorers with Drew
Goffey carding a 77, Cole
Mitchell an 81, Mike
Gillooley an 83 and Craig
Leckie and 85.
While the nip-and-tuck
battle assuredly added to
the drama, the fact that the
top three teams from dis-
trict advance perhaps took
orite of the pressure off
with each team a relatively
safe nine strokes ahead of

Condnued from 1B
home crowd fity and getting
the visiting fans on their feet,
before the Streaks finally
closed out the 25-23 win.
The second game played
out much the same, with
Sebring jumping up early and
Lake Placid charging right
back.
An 8-3 Streak lead became
a 13-13 tie before Sebring
started to stretch it out again.
Soon it was 20-16, but two
straight from the Dragons
started camping things up
agam.
But a Brittany Whittington
kill then turned the tide and

lopr ort 25S- nshut the
"I really wanted to take
that in three, especially after
we got the first two," head
coach Venessa Sinness said.
"But the girls had a little lull
in the third game. Which you
can't do against a team like
this."
It didn't start that way,
with an early 7-3 Sebring
lead, but another Lake Placid
comeback was looming as a
Sierra Weaver kill caught the
Dragons up at 11-11, and this
time, they never trailed
agam.
A back and forth kept it
knotted until 14-14, blit
Sebring would only score
three more times with the
Dragons cruising from there
m as lopsided a win as one is
ikely to see in this rivalry,
25-17.
"At least we outscored
them by more in our win, but
I guess they don't total them
up like that," Lake Placid
head coach Marilyn Jones
joked. "It would have been
nice to take them to five
games."
Which almost happened, as
in the fourth game, it was the
Lady Dragons who got off to
the early lead for a change,
ridi the momentum of the
third- ame win.
"I let it oa little in the
third game," Sinness said.
"But when they still weren't
coming out of it.in the fourth
game, that's when I really
had to get on them."
The Streaks responded,
pushing back to take a 10-7
lead on an Abigail Bone kill,
but now, the battle had been
joined and the Dragons
weren't going to go easy.
They tied it at 11, then at
13 before scoring three
straight to go up 16-13.
A Whittington tip got it
back to 16-15, but Lake
Placid answered with four of
the next six for a 20-17 lead.
Now it was Sebring's turn
to pull the late comeback,
with Whittington tipping in
another score and Brit
Augustin serving up and an
ace and scoring on a tip of
her own.
Seven straight were scored
and the three-point deficit
\vas now a 24-20 lead.
Two in a row were the
Dragons answer, but a


resounding kill by Bone was
the final answer, putting an
exclamation point on the 25-
22 win.
Lake Placid finished up
their regular season with a
Senior Night home date
against Hardee Thursday,
before getting ready to go for
their fifth straight district
title in the District 9-3A
Tournament.
That tournament starts
Monday, but with the top
seed, the Dragons won't play
until Wednesday, when they
will face the winner of the
Avon Park, Frostproof match.


The Blue Streaks now go
about the process of prepar-
ing for the District 5-5A
Tournament in Haines City
Monday, facing Lake Wales.
"This was a great way to
finish, a great match with
this sort of atmosphere,"
Sinness said.
Her sentiment was joined
by Bone, who also conveyed
what are some of her coach's
forewarning,
"This really gives us a lot
of confidence," she said.
"But we know we can't go in
overconfident."

cating richness and insight
that both inspires and
delights. Known over the
years for his innovative
blend of original, folk,
standards, jazz and world
music, Roth's performanc-
es celebrate not only the
mountain dulcimer and
voice, but the richness
behind the music that is all
part of the "human voy-
age.
Roth has recorded for
Sony Music, National
Geographic and Star Gazer
Recordings. From 1974-
1984 Roth was signed as a
Smithsonian/Folkways
Records artist and with a
career spanning more than
three decades (during
which time he shared the
stage with such musical
legends as Odetta, Arlo
Guthrie, Ola Belle Reed,
Pete Seeger, and Peter,
Paul, and Mary). Roth's


ilt r s gser, usi
cian and abstract artist are
as numerous as they are
diverse.
"Kevin Roth in
Concert," pays tribute to
the great folk musicians of
our time such as Peter, Paul
and Mary, Woody Guthrie,
etc. His latest adult CD
with special guest Noel
Paul Stookey (of Peter,
Paul and Mary),. Between
The Notes, features brand
new' songs as well as a
companion DVD of origi-
nal paintings, song lyrics,

cert is a true inspiration.

Before returning to heav-
en, Jesus told his disciples
to go and teach all nations
the good news of the
gospel. .Sadly, we must
admit that we are losing
our own nation. In order to
reach the lost in the regions
beyond, it-is imperative
that we reclaim those clos-
est to us. This focus must
begin with our homes. Yes,
we must still pray, strate-

* es can soTop ro ion-
but we must not overlook
our first obligation: to
teach our own children.
. In Deuteronomy 4:8,9,
God tells Moses and the
nation of Israel, "And what
nation is there so great, that
hath statutes and judgments
so righteous as all this law,
which I set before you this
day? Only take heed to thy-
self, and keep thy soul dili-
gently, lest thou forget the
things which thine eyes
have seen, and lest they
depart from thy heart all
the days of thy life: but
teach them thy sons, and
thy sons' sons;" In this pas-
sage, God reminds his cho-
sen people of the impor-
tance to teach the
Commandments to their
children. God had delivered
this nation out of Egypt
with many signs and won-

not know of God's o ds,
unless those who were eye-
witnesses told it to their
children. When they would
forget what God had done,
they would soon worship
false idols. Not only did
God want the people to
know what He had done,
but he wanted'theni to
know who He was. In verse
24, it says, "The Lord thy
God is a consuming fire,
even a jealous God." In
verse 31, it reads, "The
Lord thy God is a merciful
God." Life woidd be good
so long as they obeyed
God's commands; but there
.would be a curse should
they disobey. *
There are some things we
must teach our children,
lest they forget God and go
astray. First, we must teach
them theology: this is who
God is. Secondly, they must

we should teach our chil-
dren Scripture: this is what
God has said. Then we ,
must give God's warnings
of what the consequences
are should we turn from
him and His Word. Lastly,
we must teach them our
heritage this is from
where God has led us and
how we got to where we
are today.
The home must be

Bible should be a familiar
member of the family:
often seen, read and hved.
Unfortunately, many par-
ents have forgotten God
and now we have a genera-
tion that is forsaking Him.
God's Word has little rele-
vance and we are reaping
the consequences as a
nation for our sin of idola-
. try. It is high time we
awake and remember the
greatest treasure we parents
may pass on to our children
is the Bible and an under-
standing of our living God.
