SEBRING - The
Highlands County
Sheriff's Office has iden-
tified the two bodies
found inside a Sebring
home Thursday morning
an confirmed that the
deaths were the result of a
murder-suicide.
Deputies were called to
4401 Shamrock Street at
10:37 a.m. Thursday

saying there had been a
shooting.
Inside the home, they
found 41-year-old Rikelle
Purcell, whose death was
ruled a homicide by the
medical examiner on
Friday, and James L. Guy,
53, the home owner
according to property
records. His death was
ruled a suicide.
When deputies were on
their way to the scene
Thursday morning, the
dispatcher reported that
there had been a domestic
disturbance at the house
the night before, but no
further information on
that call was available.
Ralph Levingston, a.
friend of Guy's, had
stopped by the house
Thursday morning to see
why Guy hadn't shown up
for a planned meeting ear-
lier in the morning.
He told the News-Sun
he saw both Guy and
Purcell on the back porch
of the home and said that
he saw a pistol on the
floor near Guy's body.
Guy was the owner of
Appliance * Hospital.
Purcell was reportedly his
girlfriend.

the Army before retiring.
When I left Avon Park I had no
plans on returning but my mother

compassionate leave that became a
reassignment. After retiring I just
sat for a year, then I asked God
what I should do next.
Avon Park Youth Academy was
hiring and I worked there two years
in the human resources department,

Heartland Idol down



to final dozen singers


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - It was longer
than a good movie, but short-
er than a bad one.
Crowds at the Heartland
Idol semifinal Thursday cer-
tainly got their money's
worth as 16 competitors sang
show tunes and songs from
movies in search of the
$2,000 grand prize.
"As a group as a whole,
this has to be some best com-
petitors we have seen," said
Highlands County's giant of
an emcee, Don Elwell.
Celebrity judge, and past
Idol winner, Nelly Guzman
Ford agreed.
"This whole group is really
talented," she said.
Alan Jay Wildstein and
Barry Foster rounded out the
usual judging crew of Jim
McCullom and Vickie Jones
as special guests.
The audience of more than
400 were treated to some
tricky costumes, as several
strutted their handiwork for
prizes and recognition.
The winners were selected
in categories of most origi-
nal, scariest and cutest for the
under-18 participants, and all
three adults competitors
received their just due for at
least showing their stuff.
When the dust had settled
around 9:30 p.m., only 12
singers were selected to
move on to the next round
including Pink Lady Julie
Temple, who sang "There are
Worse Things I Could Do"
from the play and movie
"Grease."
Michelle Rogers sang
"Funny Honey" from the play
and movie "Chicago" for her
golden ticket, and Julia
Newell also moved on with
her snazzy rendition of show
tune "Cabaret," complete
with lingerie and top hat.
Amanda Mercer gave a
judge-pleasing and energetic
performance of "Popular"
from "Wicked," which got
,her bumped up, and Amy

Thursday night. Brignoni made the grade, and will perform
again this week in downtown Sebring.


McCoy, complete with nun
outfit, suitcase, and habit,
sang "I Have Confidence"
from the "Sound of Music"
for her pass to the next semi-
final round.
Andrea Mathis moved on
after giving a strong perform-
ance of "I Believe I Can Fly"
from "Space Jam" while
Shannon Marrero got the nod
with "Wishing You Were
Somehow Here Again" from
"Phantom of the Opera."
Gary Laird moved to the
next round with his country-
rocking "Overnight Male"
from "Pure Country."
Even though there was
some discussion about per-
forming the tune in the same
style as the original artist,
Idol contestant Tiffany Elliott
was vaulted forward with
"Somewhere Over the
Rainbow" from the "Wizard
of Oz."


Mark Brignoni sand Billy
idol's "White Wedding" and
bribed his way to the next
level with his steady voice
and candy.
A haunting performance of
"Summertime" from "Porgy
and Bess" by Jennifer
Buchanan, who was singing
for two, earned her a spot,
and Jared Gravely took not
only the final spot for next
week, but also the People's
Choice selection with "Don't
Wanna Miss a Thing" from
the movie "Armageddon."
Technical difficulties left
crowd favorite,Kevin Lorne
with no back-up for "Come
Fly with Me," and a cold
deflated Timothy Anderson's
turban while attempting "A
Whole New World" from
Aladdin.
The next semifinal for the
event starts around 6 p.m.
Thursday on the Circle.


Students sing for School Board


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Students in Lori Eisinger's 4th grade class HAART class of IFred Wild Elementary School
performed a musical number honoring and encouraging respect before the members of The
School Board of Highlands County before its regular meeting Tuesday night. 'Open up your
heart. You can make a difference. It's easy to show respect,' the children sang.


A spook-tacular vocabulary lesson


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - Who
said learning new vocabu-
lary had to be boring?
Certainly not the students at
Lake Country Elementary.
On Friday, the faculty and
students at the school cele-
brated Halloween in a
unique way. In an effort to
both celebrate and develop
broader vocabulary skills in
their students, the staff and
children were challenged to
choose a higher-level
vocabulary word to describe
their Halloween costume.
Parents were encouraged
to become involved in the
Vocabulary Challenge as
well, working with their
children at home exploring
new words together.
On Friday morning, chil-
dren excitedly arrived at
school dressed in a wide
array of costumes, from the
very detailed to the very
simple.
However, in an effort for
all children to be involved
in the parade, elaborate cos-
tuming was not needed. The
Halloween parade's focus
was not on the costume,
rather than the words the
children chose to describe
how they looked.
Some children came "as
is" and illustrated their word
through facial expressions
and body language, such as
exhausted, suspicious, or
bedraggled. All students dis-
played their selected word,
by wearing a specially
designed vocabulary card.
The parade was kicked

off at 9 a.m. by kindergart-
ners and first-graders. While
parents and visitors
watched, their little ones
paraded around the school
holding up their robust
vocabulary word cards
which described their
adorable costumes.
Their words were more
age appropriate with exam-
ples being princess, heroic,
beautiful, handsome, cheer-


ful, brave, frightening and
charming.
Second- through fifth-
graders continued the
parade fn the P.E. area.
Vintage, tenacious, coura-
geous, spectacular,
grandiose, atrocious,
appalling, extravagant and
flamboyant were just some
of the words that students
choose to describe their out-
fits.

What makes a valid news organization?

Laura's - -
Look *
Laura Ware

I've watched with some bemuse-
ment how some people have worked OA
very hard to paint Fox News as a fake
news network. As far as I can deter-
mine, the reason they do this is they
don't like what Fox News has to say r
on some issues.
A friend of mine even said that Fox
is not a real news network because of i
the stories it chooses to report. He
sent me to a Web site, fair.org, to back *
up his claim. I went there and looked
over who was a part of the Web site, *
and noticed they all seemed to be of a
certain political bent. If they were
truly fair, wouldn't all views be repre-
sented?
Even the White House tossed its
two cents in earlier this month, urging . -

The other side of the wall
Editor:
I have the other side of the East Center
Avenue wall story. I live on the other side of
said wall.
First of all, yes, it was surveyed - one year
prior to the state of this construction! And to
be totally honest, there was actually no need
for a formal survey, because in this case and
in this part of.town there are solid iron rebar
survey lines driven so deep into the ground
you couldn't ever remove them or miss them
for that matter and they are capped with a
bright orange topper to let the land owner
know with precise measurement exactly
where ones property ends and the city's
begins.
I built a wall in front of my house years
ago and used these markers just fine. You are
all welcome to drive by my house that is just
to the left of 503 E. Center and see what I'm
speaking of. I will also be glad to take you
outside and dig under said wall to show any-
one interested where Mrs. (Gingerlee)
Mitchellindo's property line is. Of course I
will need to dig with a shovel under said wall
and use a flashlight to show where the iron
rebar is, but I assure you, it is visible with its
orange cap gloriously shining for everyone to
see.
As far as the permit goes. I viewed that as
well, and so can all of you, that shows she
pulled a permit for a chain fence. That's not
exactly what she put, now is it?
There also was no inspection after the two
years it took her and her husband to personal-
ly construct the monstrosity. How do I know
this? I was told in no uncertain terms by Scott


Noethlich, that this was not done and could
not be done after each person pulls a permit.
They are not in the business of coming back
out to check your work. It most definitely was
not inspected to anyone "satisfaction" in
1996. I1 know this for a fact and so does Mrs.
Mitchellindo and so says the city.
I will, however agree with Mrs.
Mitchellindo's personal dislike of the city's
handling of this whole issue though.
I called Code enforcement many times in
1996 and on to complain many times about
the construction of this wall with no one to
help. No one seemed to cared back then. I, at
the time, was a newly divorced mom of a 1-
year-old and felt very alone and largely
ignored when asking rty city for help in this
matter. ... Now, because of the removal of the
easment, it's an issue for a lot more than one
and now the city has found issue and cause
for the removal off of their city-owned land.
This has been an issue for me and every
pedestrian and motorist for the last 13 years,
make no mistake about that. I had just
become adept at learning how to back out of
my driveway carefully enough not to hit you,
the public. Not without near misses though. I
cannot tell you how many times in years past
that a child has had to bang the back of my
vehicle to let me know I have almost run
them over....
And that is when I had the benefit of the
easement to see you (the public) as I slowly
backed out.
Now there is no easement and I implore
every citizen of our city to be very careful
while passing my home. I cannot see you

TODAY'S LETTERS


Continued from page 3A
because of this 8-foot wall and the fact that
the butt end of my vehicle is in oncoming
traffic before I can see a thing. ... Until this
wall is moved, take heed passing by my
home. But, don't worry, the city will proba-
bly pick up the tab as any good lawyer will
be able to find where I have repeatedly
warned them of this impending problem.
Mrs. Mitchellindo, in her persuasive ways
of trying to tell everyone of her woes, has
also forgotten to tell you of how she also
built this same wall three inches over on my
property. I told the city of this as well. Once
again, no help. I was told at the time that I
would need to obtain a lawyer to help me.
So I literally had to watch her build this
wall knowing she was building it on my
property. I could not afford at that time in
my life to hire an attorney, as I was busy
just trying to keep my lights on with a baby
in the house in the midst of divorce.
Mrs, Mitchellindo has outright lied over
the years stating to me that my husband (at
the time) told her that she could build her
wall on my property. Who. would do that?
Would you? I did not.
To sum this up, this is purely a case in
which a homeowner just wanted more. All
the way around. She took things that were
not hers and knowingly so. She has no doc-
umentation to prove otherwise. I asked for
it. It's not available because it doesn't exist.
Mrs. Mitchellindo is in the wrong to ask
for the city to buy "her" land as it is clearly
not her land. Why would the city buy land
they already own?
So while Mrs. Mitchellindo is asking for


"donations" for her legal fees for a case she
lost and knew she would is ridiculous and is
trying to fool the public into feeling sorry
for her. I do not. I followed the law in,build-
ing my retaining wall and so should have
you. Shame on you.

It's politically correct
Editor:
Watching two hours of Senator Spector's
recent "town hall" meeting in Lebanon, Pa.,
I realized that a new chapter in the protocol
of political correctness has been written that
only applies to elected officials holding
"Town Hall" meetings on health care.
In the service of honoring our time hon-
ored tradition of free speech, elected offi-
cials must "suffer fools gladly" and permit
any and all grossly uninformed person to
vent their anger and rage, scream and shout
obscenities, curses, threats, pointless ques-
tions or distorted misinformed opinions, all
the x% while smiling and treating the question-
ers as if they are well informed, rational and
raising important, relevant issues for consid-
eration. Thus, everyone from the flat earth
society to the alien abduction, survivors will
have their legitimate political concerns
given thoughtful consideration by the
Congress when voting on any health care
legislation.
God save the Republic.

SMEET THE CANDIDATESS


Continued from 1A
ed to give up. Everything I
did was wrong. People
complained even then, but I
decided that I needed to get
a thick skin.
Now when people com-
plain to me I tell them to
give me an idea of how to
fix your problem.
We need citizen partici-
pation. I want to see more
people coming to city coun-
cil meetings.
Avon Park is spread out
like I don't know what,
we're -trying to bring it
together.
The Chamber of
Commerce needs to become
more involved. I have not
seen one example of the
chamber reaching out to the
south side.
In terms of large projects,
we need to concentrate on
the south side, get a T-21
grant or something to reno-
vate the commercial area
and bring business back.
Community leaders need
to gather and talk. We can-
brainstorm together.
Dan Murphy (of the
Economic Development
Commission) wants to cre-
ate an incubator. We need to
open our doors, and tell
him, "What can Avon Park
do to assist you?"
We don't make good
landlords. We need to get
out of the renting business.
I'd like to see someone
come in aind rent, lease or
buy the Community Center.


Continued from page 1A
ings and she wanted me to
join the NAACP. I became a
volunteer community coor-
dinator working to get
grants for elderly home
owners in need of home
repairs. These people have
been living in these condi-
tions so long they accept it.
I guide the process. I've
done 20 grants so far, three
have been approved and
we're waiting on the rest.
The majority of the repairs
are handicapping the bath-
rooms, and taking out bath-
tubs and putting in showers.
You have to do the right
thing by people, especially
at this time. Take the new
late fees on the water bill.
Eighty dollars after 5 p.m.
to turn the water on. That's
not necessary. They've
already increased the rate,
don't take away the safety
net, roll it over to the next
month.
They say the raise in
rates is only this much or
that much, but when you get
only a certain amount every
two weeks, every penny
counts. If you're short $5,
$3 is a big deal.
Add in the shorter hours
to pay, and the fact that the
pay window is only open
certain hours now, and that
adds up to a lot of people
with the water shut off.
The communication
between the city and the
public is horrible. I've been
coming to city council
meetings. There was a man
trying to speak, but English
was his second language
and he needed help. He and
Sarah Adelt (the city man-
ager) did not understand
each other. It is a huge,


Let someone else handle it.
The budget? It is what it
is. It's tough, true enough,
you can't spend, spend,
spend.
You need a good city
manager. Sarah Adelt has
shown a lot of improvement
and learned a lot, but she's
not able to think outside the
box. I gave her a "fair"
review.
I want an airport authori-
ty, but at this time it's not
feasible, so it will remain as
it is. We need to look into
getting an airport manager
with the city's interests at
heart. Something to look
forward to there would be
smaller light industry, or
some type of factory train-
ing.
I voted against the raise
in water and sewer rates
because it wasn't the right
time for it. I know we need
it to pay for the service, but
the timing was just not
right. People are having a
hard time, we should have
postponed it.
The business window in
city hall is closed a lot, peo-
ple are used to going on a
certain day at a certain time,
their bills get paid late, and
it's hard to pay the late fee.
Too much is going on at a
time.
Not that we don't need
the raise in rates, we do.
But, we didn't get there
overnight, and we can't
solve it overnight. It just
takes time.


huge. problem.
Local government has to
be very open. Like the
water fees, where is the
money going?
One of the problems is
more people need to take
part. I'm so sick of the com-
plainers. Go to meetings,
look them in the eyes.
When council members
start to make decisions,
they have to know you care.
Ask the right questions and
punch the right buttons.
Take the Ridgedale
Watch, citizens got
involved. If more neighbor-
hoods did that, we wouldn't
need a police sub-station. It
has got to be everybody.
We really, really, really,
need to save the recreation
center. We can't close it
down. We have to have
after-school and summer
programs.
The municipal airport is
not going away. We have to
keep it. But we need to use
it to our advantage; maybe
some industry there.
We should have more fes-
tivals to draw people in. I'd
love to see a Heritage
Festival every year, we
have enough cultures. And
"something every month -
maybe with food and music,
like a St. Patrick's Day or a
Cinco de Mayo celebration.
How to encourage eco-
nomic development? We
need more businesses in
Avon Park. Avon Park is not
seen as friendly to business.
Streamline the process of
opening a business, get rid
of problems in the way.
I like the new look on
Main Street. We need more
small businesses. Shopping
locally helps that.


Terry Heston


Continued from page 1A
Heston. She's four months
old and she's absolutely
wonderful. My wife and I
raised three kids here. My
boys grew up swimming in
Tulane Lake. I coached foot-
ball and baseball.
What needs to happen
here? I don't see that many
problems. Avon Park has it
all: Roads, sewers and water.
We have to continue clean-
ing up and keep going with
code enforcement. I want to
see houses that are con-
demned torn down and build
new houses over them. That
creates taxpayers.
Race is absolutely not a
problem. I live on the south
side.
I've seen a lot of changes
for the better, OK, things are
better over the last three
years. There are always prob-
lems in a city, but not so
many here. I think Avon Park


does a good job overall.
I have faith in Sarah Adelt,
the police department, the
fire department and code
enforcement. I have faith in
every department.
I think Sarah is doing a
good job. She's answered all
my questions.
I went' and talked to her
about the airport. It can be
used for bringing business in,
but overall, I don't know how
we're going to get business
in Avon Park. There are no
easy answers. It's something
we have to work on, but I
don't know how. The econo-
my has to come back.
I know it's going to be a lot
of work. I saw what my
father went through, and I am

I work through my church

I want to run for city coun-
cil because I think I can help.
* I think the city has to reach
out to families.
For example, we need
more festivals that aren't
money pits. Events with
more things families can do
other than spend dollars on
crafts and food. There's no
family value in that at all.
We need festivals that
include things like bed races,
or raft races, a tug-of-war,
baking contests, things like
that. Maybe a barbecue every
quarter with dancing. No
alcohol. Sell barbecue tickets
in advance, bring in a band.

I'm interested in the con-
cerns of the people. I'm
against getting rid of the
police department.
I think if city employees
can do the job it should be
done in-house.
How is the city managed?
Pretty smooth in a lot of
things. It could be run better,
but it could be a whole lot
worse. There's always room
for improvement.
I have mixed feelings
about the CRAs, half the
time they don't have a quo-
rum, and Avon Park is Avon
Park - all together. We need
to improve all parts of town.
God put us on this Earth to
take care of it. People need to
take care of what they have,
not just tear it up.

Only one award was
handed out Thursday night,
the prestigious Business
Excellence Award, which
was bestowed on the Lake
Placid Health Care Center.
Accepting the award
were its administrator,
David Smith and his wife,
Lori Smith.
In explaining why the
Lake Placid Health Care
Center was honored, pre,
senter Ronnie Carter said
the award was designed to
acknowledge companies
which had been in business
for at least three years,
used good business prac-
tices, had expanded and
was involved in the com-
munity.


Care Center
"This year's recipient
excels in every category,"
Carter said.
The company has more
than 200 associates with an
annual payroll of nearly $6
million.
Turnover in employees
is only 15 percent, in an
industry with normal
turnover rates of 50 per-
cent.
The center has been in
business for 25 years and
expanded over the years. It
now has 180 residents in
short-term rehabilitation or
long-term care.
It averages a total occu-
pancy of 90 to 95 percent.
The center is part of the
South Florida Community
College's Nursing
Advisory Committee, and
has representatives on the
boards of directors for the
Florida Professional
Association of Care Givers
and the Lake Placid Noon
Rotary.

Operation Round Up, recently donated
$5,000 toward a teen center in Wauchula. The

Local Avon representative launches fundraiser


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - A local Avon represen-
tative and philanthropist wishes to make
a difference by raising funds and aware-.
ness for abused children in Highlands
County.
Florence Richmond of Sebring
recently learned that child abuse can
impact everyone's life in some way,


including her own. While not personally
a victim of abuse, Richmond has gained
a new passion for child abuse awareness
and prevention. She has made it a per-
sonal goal to spend as much of her free
time towards child abuse awareness
activities.
Richmond has organized a fundraiser
through Avon Fundraising just in time


for holiday shopping. Even during a
tough economy, Richmond knows that
beauty and skin care products are essen-
tials that women (and even some men)
won't cut out of their budget.
Proceeds from the three-week
fundraiser will go directly to the

VETERANS NEWS

Morris Funeral Chapel becomes exclusive VFMC provider


Kicks off Cell Phones for
Soldiers collection drive


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Terrill Morris,
owner of Morris Funeral
Chapel, announced that his
firm 4has been selected to
become an exclusive,
Certified Veterans & Family
Memorial Care Provider for
Highlands County. VFMC
Providers are family owned
and operated. They are
selected for upholding the
highest level of ethical busi-
ness standards and integrity
while providing outstanding,
affordable professional serv-
ice.
The staff at Morris Funeral


Chapel are experts in assist-
ing families with all aspects
of the final arrangement
process. They work closely
with all veterans service
organizations and local
Hospices.
The government does an
excellent job providing veter-
ans and their spouses with
burial benefits if you use a
Veterans National or State
cemetery, however there are
very limited benefits for the
funeral or cremation arrange-
ments. Morris has demon-
strated a willingness and
commitment to reach out to


veterans and their families by
providing affordable, quality
funeral and cremation
arrangements. They honor
and pay tribute to veterans
everyday
Another way VFMC
Providers are reaching out is
by their participation in the
Cell Phones for Soldiers
project. More than 150,000
troops are serving overseas
and are away from their fam-
ilies. Hundreds of Veterans &
Family Memorial Care
Providers nationwide are
calling on all Americans to
support these brave men and
women by donating your old
cell phones. Included in
becoming an exclusive
Veterans & Family Memorial
Care Provider, Morris


Recruiters visit Military Sea Services Museum


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - On Oct. 14, the' Military Sea
Services Museum was visited by eight new
Navy recruits and three Navy recruiters from
the Winter Haven Navy recruiting office.
The eight Navy recruits are awaiting their
call-up to active duty and "Boot Camp." They
have been sworn in but billets are not yet
available. There was one female recruit
among the group. When she does get called
up and finishes Boot Camp in Great Lakes


Naval Training Center in Illinois, she will
then be sent to the Navy's Aviation Ordnance
School in Pensacola. On completion of this
14-week school she will then be assigned to a
ship or duty station or duty for which she was
trained.
The other recruits will also be sent to a
service school in various vocations.
The visit to the museum was intended to
familiarize them to a lot of the lifestyles in
the Naval Service.


Avon Park American Legion

donates to police dogs


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - The Avon
Park American Legion Post
69 was so proud to see the
hard work put forth by Post
law in order chairman Doug
Deierlein, who proved to be a
dynamic force in bringing
Avon Park Police Chief Matt
Dougherty, along with dog
handler Detective Orlando
Esquibel and his partner, 4-
year-old German Sheppard
Hex, to meet Post members.
The Legionnaires proudly
gave a $250 check donation
toward the care and building
of the canine unit.
Deierlein said, "The Avon
Park police are our first
responders to the Legion's
calls and therefore we should
partner with them in
fundraising for the good of
all our community."
The post commander pre-
sented the check, and prom-
ised they would be doing a
fundraiser at the Post to
enhance this worthwhile
project in any way.
Chief Matt Doughney said,
they are proud to have two
dogs at this time but would
love to have a third.

We all realize the selfless
initiative put forth by the
officers and realize the
advantage of another officer
on the street that is trained in
drug discovery, apprehen-


sion, and all areas of protec-
tive service as these dogs
are."
To train one dog could run
$12,500 and then of course
there is the upkeep.

Funeral Chapel in Sebring
has become an official drop
off site for Cell Phones for
Soldiers to help troops stay
connected with their families.
The local funeral home has
also become an Old Glory
Collection Center as part of
its proud membership in
Veterans & Family Memorial
Care. The mission is to col-
lect old, tattered, unusable
flags to be retired in a digni-


fied manner in accordance
with the U.S. Flag Code.
As the United States con-
tinues to prosecute the War
on Terror, across the nation,
Americans continue to dis-
play their pride and patriot-
ism to a degree not witnessed
since the World War II era.
The nation's flag flies boldly
from homes, offices and
automobiles. As time passes,
however, many of these flags


4


begin to show the ill effects
of exposure to wind and
weather. As they are
replaced, their owners are
faced with the dilemma of
what to do with them.
Local residents can sup-
port the collection drives by
donating their old cell phones
or tattered flags at Morris
Funeral Chapel, 307 S.
Commerce Ave., Sebring, FL
33870.

Batter Up!


Blue Streaks survive fright night


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
AUBURNDALE - The 12-
8 score in Sebring's victory
at Auburndale Friday night
might conjure up images of a
tough, defensive battle.
But that would be both
inaccurate and dressing it up
far too much.
Perhaps it was fitting that
the game played on the
Bloodhounds home field was
on All Hallows Eve, for in
many ways it was ghoulish
and frightening to watch.
"It sure wasn't pret- Se
ty," Blue Streak head
coach Jared Hamlin
said afterward. "It 1
seemed like we'd take Aubi
three steps forward
and then five back,
then two forward and
three back. Fortunately
we finally got to a point of
taking 15 steps forward and
not going back."
Those 15 steps came with
just 5:23 left in the game and
Sebring trailing by an 8-6
score.
On fourth and seven, near
midfield, quarterback Matt
Grubb found his favorite tar-
get, Devin Clarke, streaking
across the middle.
The catch and run 'down
the right sideline went for a
47-yard score and the scari-
ness of the Bloodhound's


Ir

I


house of horrors was all but
over.
Auburndale did get the ball
back, twice more in fact, and
they had shown earlier that
they could break one at any
time.
But the Blue Streak
defense was up to the task, as
they have been virtually all
season, in closing it out with-
out any more haunting
visions.
There had been enough of
those throughout.
Things looked
ing much brighter in the
early going when,
after a three-and-out
on Sebring's opening
ndale possession, the
Bloodhounds quickly
gave it back on a first-
play fumble that was
covered by Michael
Hankerson.
Damion Thompson then
bull rushed for ten yards,
Daniel Burnett pushed
through for two and an off-
sides moved it to the
Auburndale 29.
An incompletion was fol-
lowed by a no gain - a sign of
things to come - but Grubb
and Clarke hooked up on a
screen with Clarke then danc-
ing and sprinting through the
spread out Bloodhound
defense for a 29-yard score
and a 6-0 lead.


Things quickly turned
scary when the first of three
Auburndale quarterback's on
the night, Jamiah Crawford,
scored on a 69-yard keeper
around the left side - but a
holding penalty called it
back.
Flashes of their speed were
enough to keep the Sebring
faithful on edge, but time and
again the Blue Streak defense
bent but didn't break.
They were helped out, of
course, with numerous penal-
ties and turnovers that
Auburndale incurred to hold
themselves back as much as
the Streaks did.
And after the initial score,
the Sebring offense, at times,
couldn't get out of its own
way.
"Poor pass protection,
dropped balls, overthrows,
missed assignments - it
seemed like everyone was a
part of it," Hamlin said.
Those started to show up
on the next series, as Sebring
got it to the five, when a 40-
yard Burnett run gave them
first and goal.
But a holding penalty
backed them up to the 15, a
QB sack lost another 10
yards and soon enough, that
first and goal at the five
turned into a missed 38-yard
field goal attempt.
An Anthony Powell inter-

ception got the ball back
early in the second quarter,
but Grubb was promptly
sacked on a hard enough hit
to send him to the sidelines
for the rest of that short-lived
series.
Back and forth the sloppi-
ness went - three incomple-


tions and a holding penalty
on Auburndale's next posses-
sion, Grubb under heavy
pressure and a holding call
on Sebring's next time with
the ball.
Another frightening
moment then came in the
third quarter as Sebring had


adjusted and was stuffing the
Bloodhound runs around end,
suddenly Auburndale did a
quarterback draw right up the
middle and Crawford went
virtually untouched for a 78-
yard score.

Lake Placid stopped by Dunbar


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID - In the
last 11 years, the Lake Placid
football program hasn't
found itself with a game that
held the magnitude of Friday
night's contest with
the Dunbar High Du
School Tigers - the
winner would all but
seal up a state playoff
spot. Lake
Missed opportuni-
ties and mental mis-
takes, however,
crushed the Dragons as
they fell 20-3 at Roger
Scarborough Memorial Field.
"We made some mistakes
tonight that really hurt us,"
commented Jason Holden the
Lake Placid skipper. "Our


Ln


kids played hard but couldn't
finish."
Things looked great for the
Dragons on their opening
drive as they used a strong
balance of run and pass, rid-
ing the backs of Navahri
Holden and Caleb
ibar Jones.
O The first of many
mistakes came on a
third-and-three inside
Placid the Dunbar 30, when a
I Lake Placid lineman
committed a false
start to push them
back making it third-and-
eight.
The Dragons couldn't con-
vert and failed on fourth
down to turn the ball over.
On the ensuing drive for
Dunbar, quarterback Chris


James hit Darius DeLoach
for a 65-yard pitch-and-catch
for the first score of the
game. The Dragons stopped
the 2-point conversion to
keep the score at 6-0.
After trading punts, the
Dragons had their best
chance of the night to score
as they found themselves
inside the Dunbar five, for
their first of three trips.
A big run by Holden, who
had 39 yards on the drive,
and a well executed screen
pass from Kirk Veley to
Jones took the ball to the
nine-yard line.
On' first down, Holden
burst through the hole ,but
was stopped at the one. Jones

Dragons make it a five-peat

By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
MULBERRY - If they
awarded rings for district
championships, Lake
Placid head coach
Marilyn Jones would
now have a handful, with
the most current one
earned Thursday night
for the Lady Dragons
with a three-game sweep
over McKeel Academy.
"It feels great," an elat-
ed and relieved Jones
said when it was over.
"Each year feels better
than the last and this one
especially so since this is
my last year."
Though this one lasted
a little longer than it
could have with a game
Wildcat bunch hanging
around in each of the
three games.
Save for a momentary
6-5 lead in the opener,
McKeel never did hold
another lead, but until the:
third game, they kept -,,
things relatively close.
Lake Placid quickly

Dragons fall to Tigers -


playoff hopes alive, but slim


S Continued from 1C
was then stuffed on a run that
set up third-and-goal at the
two when Veley was stripped
and the ball was turned over
to Dunbar.
Dunbar made the Dragons
pay as they took the ball 97
yards on just eight plays.
Lake Placid had the Tigers
backed up thanks to several
big plays from the defensive
front but the back-breaker
came on third and long when
Schon Thomas took a hand
off and weaved down the
sideline for an 80-yard run to
push the score to 12-0.
The Dragons had a glimpse
of life on the next series as
Veley found Andre Wilson on
a 21-yard throw that was fol-
lowed by a thundering 11-
yard run from Holden.
But the drive stalled out
and were forced to punt.
The Green Dragon defense
stepped up once again as they
forced the Tigers to punt the
ball away - on the punt, the
snap was poorly handled and
it slipped away from the
punter giving the Dragons a
glimmer of hope.
With just under a minute to
go in the half the Dragons
had a golden opportunity to
get on the scoreboard.
With only second left on
the clock, the Tigers were
called for an unsportsmanlike
penalty to put the ball at the
27-yard line for the strong
leg of Steven Guelff, who
made it look easy as the ball
sailed through the uprights as
time expired in the first half.
Lake Placid tried a little
trickery to open the second


half as they attempted an
onside kick that was easily
recovered by Dunbar.
With the ball on the Green
Dragon side of the 50 yard
line, it took the Tigers only
six plays to find the end zone.
James was able to connect
with DeLoach on three pass-
es on the drive before
Thomas took the ball in from
five yards out.
The Dragons were able to
stop the 2-point conversion
to keep the score at 18-3.
Lake Placid had a strong
drive going on their next pos-
session, thanks to an eight-
yard run by Jones that was
followed by a 25-yard
Holden scamper.
On the next play Veley
connected with Wilson on a
30-yard pass that was negat-
ed by a chop block that sent
the Dragons back to the 50
yard line, and two plays later
the Dragons had to punt the
ball away.
The defense came up huge
on the next drive, as they
were able to recover a snap
that sailed over the quarter-
backs head giving the offense
the ball at the 20.
With yet another golden
opportunity; Lake Placid had
strong runs by Jones that set
the ball up inside the five, but
the Dragons weren't able to
punch it in and the ball was
turned over at the three.
The Lake Placid defense
stood strong, forcing the
Tigers to punt the ball away
from the shadow of their own
endzone.
With the ball on the 30-
yard line, the Dragons had


another shot to score with
just over a minute to go in the
third quarter.
Facing a third-and-seven,
Jones hit the hole for a 20-
yard dash before two strong
runs gave the Dragons the
ball inside the five.
Facing fourth and goal,
Veley found an open Anthony
Gonzalez in the end zone but
while the ball was in the air it
was tipped twice by a Dunbar
defender and then fell
through the arms of
Gonzalez.
Once again the Green
Dragon defense stood strong
despite allowing a couple
first downs before forcing a
Dunbar punt.
More miscues came on the
ensuing possession as the
Dragons were forced to punt.
but the snap sailed over the
kickers head for a safety.
The two points pushed the
lead to the final margin of
20-3.
Despite the missed oppor-
tunities, the Dragons had a
strong rushing performance
from Holden who had 13 car-
ries for 101 yards while
Jones had 16 carries for 60
yards.
The 60 yards rushing
pushed Jones over the 1,000
yard rushing mark for the
season with two games to go.
Jones marks the first play-
er in Lake Placid to rush for
over 1,000 yards since Sedric
Clarke did it 11 years ago.
The Dragons hit the road
next week for their final dis-
trict game of the season at
Gateway Charter.


Two Clarke TDs overcome ugly night


Continued from 1C
More sloppiness ensued,
but worked in the home
team's favor as they tried to
kick the extra point.
A bad snap sent the holder
running toward right end
before a jarring hit knocked
the ball loose, only to be
scooped up by Ricardo Singh
and run in around left end for
two points and the 8-6 lead.
But though there was much
tumult to follow over the
next two quarters, Sebring
was able to find a treat
among the night full of tricks
that tasted all the more sweet.
"This was the kind of game
where we had to dig deep,"
Hamlin said. "It was ugly and
things seemed scattered at
times. But when they needed
to, the team pulled together
and got it done."
Clarke ended the night
with three catches for 78
yards and the two touch-
downs, while Grubb's pass-
ing line, though not pretty,
comes with some caveats.
While just 7-of-19 passing,
there were four drops and a
number of pressured throws
in the mix.
But he did reach the 100-
yard mark and his two key
connections with Clarke were
enough to secure the win.
Thompson lead the ground
game with 74 yards on 18
carries with Burnett gaining
49 on nine carries.
The win puts Sebring at 3-
2 in district play, with one
more game to figure in the
standings.

Tayler Allcorn, Edwin
Velazquez and Samperi are in
the running with a third in

Also at Rowdy Gaines on
Thursday, Sebring had it's
share of regional qualifiers
with the girls, as a team, taking
second (362 points) in the 12-
team field and the boys fourth
(266 points).
Kara Burger took an out-
right win in the 100 Butterfly
in 1:06.80, shaving more than
three seconds off her prelimi-
nary time.


Michael Bickman won the
boys side of the event in
1:01.78 to stamp his ticket and
Brian Miller did the same
when he won the 100
Breaststroke in 1:09.39.
Putting themselves in good
stead to move on to their
regional at the Florida Gulf
Coast Pool in Estero Thursday
with second-place finishes
were Burger in the 200 IM
(2:31.47), Julie Kirsh in the 50
and 100 Free (27.83, 1:01.29),
Josh Heflin in the 50 and 100
Free (24.32, 53.98), and the
Girls 400 Free Relay team of
Burger, Kirsch, McKenzie
Hargadan and Katelyn Bryan
(4:20.60).
Bryan, Burger, Kirsch and
Marissa Parson teamed up for
third in the Girls 200 Medley
Relay in 2:15.25 to keep their
hopes within reach, as did the
quartet of George Dumont,
Miller, Bickman and Heflin in
the Boys 200 Medley
(1:57.64).
Hargaden was third in Girls
Diving, with 352.60 points,
and while just outside the top
two to automatically qualify,
her score was well above the
280 needed for consideration.
Bryan was third in the 100
Back (1:17.94), the relay team
of Heflin, Miller, Brian Ortiz
and Richard Karl was third in
the 400 Free, Bickman fourth
in the Boys 100 Back (1:14.29)
and Jessica Todd took fourth in
the 500 Free (6:57.97) to put
themselves in the running for
regional berths.
Whatever the final numbers
wash out as, Highlands County
will surely be well represented
in the next stage of state swim-
ming.

the Lady Wildcats scratched back to
either tie or get within one.
But a big kill from Sierra Weaver
and a kill and consecutive aces from
Marissa Baldwin created some space
in the 25-19 win.
The second game looked to be a
much easier contest with the Dragons
building a 19-11 lead when suddenly,
courtesy of a 10-2 run that was a com-
bination of McKeel tenacity and Lake

Highland just a bit

-too much for Devils


Continued from 1C
the offensive line to pound
out 90 yards in 9 minutes of
play which ended with Allen
crossing the line from six out
for six.
Robert Bieber's PAT was
good, making it seven.
Allen ended the night with
171 yards rushing on 28 car-
ries, but connected just twice
to his favorite target,
Robertson, out of 12 attempts
for 65 yards.
The Highlanders only need
22 seconds to return the
favor, but Robertson blocked
the point after, leaving the
Devils out front going into
the second quarter.
The Devils shut down the
inside run, forcing the
Highlanders to swing wide
on the options and stringing
the plays out where the Big
Red defense could use speed
to contain the prep school's
solid offense.
With six minutes left in the
half, the Devils held Lake
Highland 14 yards out, and
forced them to settle for a
field goal.
Avon Park was moving
toward another six when Ty
Law picked off an Allen
throw, which set the stage for
an 82-yard run by Zack
McCarrell.
McCarrell was pulled
down short of the end zone,
and left the game with an
injury, but was close enough
to make it an easy push for
the Highlander offensive line
to put Bobby Borcky through
on the quarterback sneak,
making it 16-7 at the half.
Allen came out strong after
the break, and used a punt


fake to run one in from 47
yards out five minutes into
the second half.
A little confusion on the
PAT allowed Highland to
block Bieber's attempt, leav-
ing the score at 16-13
Highlanders.
A clock-eating drive by
Highland Prep put work-
horse BJ Simpson into the
zone from five yards and the
successful PAT stretched the
lead out to 23-13.
Allen responded in the
fourth from 16 yards for six
more, but Bieber's PAT was
again blocked leaving the
score at 23-19 Highlands.
Robertson and Allen, this
time on defense, came up big
by sacking McCarrell on
third and short, forcing the
punt with six minutes left in
the fourth - plenty of time for
a Devil score.
Allen converted on a
fourth-and-nine with two
minutes left, but Law again
shut down the Devil drive
with a pick at the 33.
The Highlanders soon
decided to take a knee with
just over a minute left, leav-
ing it at 23-19 Highland Prep.
"We played hard,"
Robertson said. "We never
gave up, and showed that we
have improved a lot since the
start of the year."
"Allen is a great kid, and
he will be playing on
Saturday's somewhere next
year," Bonjokian said. "If we
keep giving this kind of
effort, the wins will come."
The Devils hit the road the
next two weeks, facing
Tampa Catholic and Sebring
to wrap up the season.

AT 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.' Read on:)

Spencer Whitr
Owner


DATELINE: Highlands County YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF


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 Jaw
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.

Plant hardy muhly grass for a unique-looking landscape


For the past couple of ,
months, I've written about
several different species of
native plants that will be
offered on Jan. 9 during
the Air Potato Exchange
Day at the Bert J. Harris Jr.
Agriculture Center. The
articles have informed you
about different flowering
plants, vines, bushes,
shrubs and trees.
One of the plants that

is a type of grass. Muhly
grass (Muhlenbergia capillaries) is
a tough native grass that is useful
in many different landscapes.
Muhly grass is very adaptable. It
grows about 3 to 5'feet tall and in
clusters of about the same in width.
It has extreme tolerance to drought
and flooding, making it a suitable
plant for wetland areas as well as
sandy ones. It is virtually mainte-
nance free and can be planted in a
variety of ways to enhance the
looks of gardens and landscapes.
This grass has a clumping form
and a stiff, upright growth. It has a
different look than most grasses
and produces a delicate, purplish
flower, which blooms in the late
summer and early fall. These


blooms can cover the
entire plant, giving it a
somewhat iridescent, pink-
ish-gray hazy appearance
that can last up to eight
weeks. After flowering,
the ripe seeds give the
plant an attractive tan
color and the look of the
grass changes dramatical-


ne Muhly grass is best
rshed when planted in masses to
Burgess fill a large area. It can also
be planted along borders.
For a more dramatic effect, it can
be planted in large, sweeping
drifts. This plant is often used to
prevent erosion because it stabi-
lizes the soil.
Birds also are attracted to muhly
grass. They feed on the ripe seeds
it produces. It provides excellent
cover and shelter for some of
nature's smaller creatures.
Plant muhly grass in full sun if
possible. It is not fussy about soil
type and can be planted most any-
where in the yard or garden as long
as it has adequate light. Florida's
heat and humid weather doesn't
bother this tough native one bit and
it can be planted in a very dry or
very wet area. It's not a picky

plant.
It can be propagated by seed or
dividing the plant up. As with any
newly planted foliage, it needs
pampering until it becomes well
established. Once muhly grass is


established, it is basically mainte-
nance free.
Native grasses are becoming
more popular with gardeners these
days. They generally offer low
maintenance and are an environ-

Elegant least tern is not the least bit ugly


Birds & Other
Wild Things
Hank and Ruth Kowalski

Welcome to our roost. It is
always a pleasure to see
someone attired elegantly
and our subject bird today
meets the criteria.
The least tern (Sternula
antillarum) fits the bill for
elegance as the summer
feathers are soft pearl-gray
above, the breast, white;
ends of wings, blackish; bill,
yellow with a black tip; legs
and feet, yellow; and above
the white forehead rises a
striking crown of black. In
the winter, the crown and
body are mainly gray and
white, and legs and feet turn
duller.
This smallest North
American tern (8-10 inches)
is a familiar resident in
Florida from March through
September. It can be found
on the shores of Lake
Jackson and Istokpoga and
on Little Lake Jackson
where the Game
Commission people had
posted signs warning people

March through September.


to keep their distance from
nesting least terns.
This little bird has other
interesting names: Sea swal-
low, kill-em polly, gaviota
chica, pigeon de la mer, little
tern, killing-peter, silvery
tern and little striker. Whew!
Formerly one of the com-
monest and most widely dis-
tributed of the tribe, the least
tern's plumage caused them
to become victims of plume
hunters, and they were
threatened with extinction.


Since coming under the
tetion nf federal and stE


laws, the birds are making a
wonderful comeback.
Historically, least terns
nested on coastal beaches,
dunes and islands, creating
shallow scrapes and laying
two to three mottled eggs.
Today, most nesting occurs
on man-made habitats
including dredged-material
islands, construction sites,
phosphate mines, and gravel
roof tops from April through
