Firefighter Farewell

Hundreds gather to say goodbye to Ryan Martin


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK - The sanctu-
ary at Avon Park Lakes Baptist
Church filled to overflowing,
the large gathering subdued and
respectful as the community said
a final goodbye to Ryan
Christopher Martin, a young
firefighter who was killed in a
traffic accident on ,his way to
work Thursday morning, Oct.
29.
He would have turned 24
Christmas Eve.
The day had been cloudy with
a breeze until Martin was car-
ried from the church and lifted
onto Highlands Lakes fire and
rescue truck No. 1 for his trip to
the Bougainvillea Cemetery.
Then the sun suddenly came out,
as if to warm the hearts of those
saying farewell.
The procession to the ceme-
tery was over a mile long, civil-
ian automobiles following fire
engines from Sun 'N Lakes '
South, Highlands Park, Leisure
Lakes, Sun 'N Lakes of Sebring,
DeSoto City, Lorida, West
Sebring, Hardee County, Placid
Lakes, the cities of Avon Park
and Sebring, and ambulances
representing Highlands County.
A special escort by the Red
Knights Motorcycle Club -
made up of firefighters from as
far away as Ohio - rode to
honor one of their own.
Dozens of firefighters, their

Money was spent at

By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - The latest audit from
Highlands County Clerk of Courts Robert
Germaine shows that the County Road and
Bridge division illegally spent more than
$150,000 on the new Sports Complex.
Additionally, the audit noted a lack of inter-
nal controls, several overpayments of vendors
in excess of $12,000, and missing equipment
obtained by six individuals using county pur-
chase cards.
The audit can be real in full at
http://www.hcclerk.org, and clearly states that
Florida Statute 336.025(7) prohibits the use of
fuel tax revenue for non-transportation related
expenses, and shows that "During the testing
of special projects it was noted unallowable
expenses (totaling $152,286.90) incurred by

SFCC plans CarFit
event Nov. 14
AVON PARK - South
Florida Community
College's Retired and
Senior Volunteer
Program will hold a
CarFit event from 8 a.m.
until noon on Saturday,
Nov. 14, in parking lot D
of the SFCC Highlands
Campus.
CarFit is designed to
help older drivers deter-
mine how well they fit in
their personal vehicle,
highlight actions they
can take to improve their
fit, and promote conver-
sations about driver safe-
ty and community mobil-
ity. A proper fit in one's
personal vehicle can
greatly increase not only
the driver's safety but
also the safety of others.
"Older drivers are
more likely to be injured
in accidents," said Kris
Schmidt, RSVP coordi-
nator. "If you have a
good fit, your chances of
being in an accident are
reduced."
Contact Schmidt at
784-7189.

Good Shepherd Hospice volunteers Dick and Linda Swenson touch base with Forsythe
Hospice House team secretary Lisa Moore before visiting patients. Dick and Linda, who
live in Sebring, drive 100 miles to Auburndale each week to volunteer at the hospice
house.


A driving need to



help those in need

Local couple makes 100-mile trip for hospice


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Good
Shepherd Hospice has
approximately 110 volun-
teers in Highlands County.
All the volunteers give of
themselves while embracing
the Good Shepherd Hospice
mission to provide outstand-
ing hospice care.
But one Highlands
County couple makes an
extra effort to live that mis-
sion by driving nearly 100
miles round-trip to visit ter-
minally ill patients and their
loved ones. That commit-
ment is a concrete example
of Dick and Linda
Swenson's devotion to their
community.
People know the
Swensons because of their
dedication to the Sun Room,
a Sebring senior center,
where Dick oversaw pro-
grams for the area's elderly
and Linda, a registered
nurse, operated the clinic.
For 17 years, Sun Room vol-
unteers offered Highland


County seniors companion-
ship, healthcare, meals and
activities to help fill their
days.
But as other agencies
offered competing services
for older residents, the Sun
Room lost valuable funding.
When the Sun Room's Board
of Directors realized that the
center would no longer be
able to operate, they offered
the property to Good
Shepherd Hospice and
Samaritan Touch Care
Center.
For the first time in many
years, Dick, 66, and Linda,
61, found themselves with
some time on their hands.
But they didn't sit still for
very long. They were drawn
to Good Shepherd Hospice
because both had personal
histories with hospice over
the years. Linda's 32-year-
old sister died under hospice
care in Kentucky. Dick's
mother and father received
Good Shepherd Hospice care
in Sebring, and both have


had friends who received
compassionate hospice care
at the end of life.
"We were committed to
volunteering for Good
Shepherd Hospice," said
Linda. "But we were unsure
of just exactly where to vol-
unteer."
The Swensons contacted
Good Shepherd Hospice
Regional Director Becky
McIntyre about their desire
to volunteer. "Dick and
Linda told me they wanted

Operation Christmas

Child coming to

Sebring this month


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Christmas
is arriving early all over
Sebring, as a local church
prepares to serve as a col-
lection point for Operation
Christmas Child. Soon,
with the help of Sebring
volunteers, the site will be
brimming with festively
wrapped shoe boxes full of
gifts.
Donations can be taken
to Bible Fellowship
Church, 3750 Hammock
Road in Sebring, from 8:30
a.m. until 5 p.m. Nov. 16-
20 and from 2-4 p.m. Nov.
20-21.
Through Operation
Christmas Child, the
world's largest Christmas
project, Sebring residents
are packing shoe box gifts
for children in more than
100 countries suffering
from natural disaster, war,
terrorism, disease, famine
and poverty. From Sebring,
the shoe box gifts will be
sorted and sent using what-
ever means necessary -
sea containers, trucks,
trains, airplanes, boats,
camels, even dog sleds -
to reach suffering children
around the world.
"Operation Christmas
Child is a unique opportu-
nity to do something as
simple as packing a shoe
box that will have a lasting
impact on a child a world
away," said Margaret
Sager, Operation Christmas
Child relay center coordi-
nator. "We are excited


ab66i(the 2009 collection
season as many community
members have already
.,begun packing shoe box
gifts."
Operation Christmas
Child uses tracking tech-
nology that allows donors
to "follow your box" to the
destination country where
it will be hand-delivered to
a child in need. To register
shoe box gifts and find out
what country they are
delivered to, use the EZ
Gioe donation form found
at www.samaritans
purse.org.
This is Sebring's first
year contributing to the
Operation Christmas Child
effort. This year, organiz-
ers hope to collect 500 gift-
filled shoe boxes from fam-
ilies, kids, churches,
schools and civic organiza-
tions in the area.
Since 1993, Operation
Christmas Child, a project
of international Christian
relief and evangelism
organization Samaritan's
Purse, headed by Franklin
Graham, has delivered
more than 69 million gift-
filled shoe boxes to needy
children in some 130 coun-
tries.

we owe a large debt of grati-
tude to our military veter-
ans," said Erik Christensen,
chair, SFCC Natural
Sciences, and a retired U.S.
Navy commander.
"This inaugural SFCC vet-
erans remembrance ceremo-
ny offers the opportunity to
take a short pause in our busy
lives and reflect upon the
sacrifices that military veter-
ans have endured to ensure
the freedoms we now richly
enjoy.
"Although we want to
salute all military veterans
who have served our great
nation, this ceremony also
gives us a chance to salute
those veterans who now con-
tinue to serve our community
as members of the SFCC
family."

EDITORIAL & OPINION


News-Sun * Friday, November 6, 2009


TODAY'S EDITORIAL


Next time, help solve our problems


he results of the Avon Park city elections are a ter-
rible disappointment. We aren't referring to the
actual results. We're referring to the abysmal
turnout.


Out of about 4,000 eligible voters,
only 600 or so turned out. That's rough-
ly 15 percent.
Fifteen percent.
At a time when the city is in crisis.
At a time when city leaders need
direction from their citizens.
But don't think this is just Avon
Park's problem. Voter apathy is a
national shame. It is nothing short of an
embarrassment that we, who talk so big
about democracy, continue to fail to
practice it.
We lose patience with those who fly
flags, wear red, white and blue, call
themselves patriots and then sit home on
election day.
We are fed up with all the whining
and complaining when so few really
care that they can make a difference.
And we are frightened by the growing
trend of candidates running unopposed.
That is a direct result of low voter


turnout.
If we don't care, why should our
elected officials care? Our very apathy
gives them the excuse to ignore us, hide
things from us, act as if we aren't here
- because, in fact we aren't.
This isn't just a disgrace - it is down
right dangerous.
Just because we have enjoyed almost
300 years of citizen-based government
doesn't mean we always will. Nations
rise and nations fall.
Rome collapsed with a push from the
outside only because apathy, greed and
ignorance corroded it from the inside.
What makes voting such an ordeal so
many avoid it? If it's because of a lack
of choices, why aren't more people run-
ning for office?
How do we change this pathetic state
of affairs?
We've pleaded for voter participation
on this very page before, to absolutely


no avail. Clearly, appealing to higher
instincts is falling on deaf ears.
Yet we can't force people to vote any
more than we can force people to stop
smoking. Doing the sensible, correct or
smart thing, even the right thing, is a
voluntary, individual act.
So, enough with polite entreaties. It's
time to talk tough.
Listen up.
Voting is a duty, more than a right.
Did our brave battle heroes die so we
could stay home, ignoring what goes on
around us?
Or were they able to give up their
lives because they believed we would
fulfill democracy's promise? That they
were dying for a worthy cause? That we
wouldn't just mouth sentimental pieties
of remembrance on Veteran's Day, but
actively make history, thereby giving
deep meaning to their sacrifice?
Those who withhold themselves from
the whole demean those who died for it.
Wake up. Care. Be a part of the solu-
tion, not the cause of the problem.
The time to thank a veteran is in the
voting booth.

TODAY'S LETTERS


The main problem
with the wall
Editor:
It seems that you, Mrs.
Morris, don't know any facts
as to what is going on.
Thank you for verifying
what I have been saying all
along to the city and county,
that the steel survey rods are
deep under the edges of my
wall. If we are to go by the
current claims of the city
and county, Mrs. Morris, I
own 1 feet, 9 inches more of
the land on your side of my
wall. It seems laughable now
that you would claim your
survey of more value than
mine or the city and county's
or the other surveys done
since the Sebring Parkway
began.
As I said before, I'm not
only fighting for my proper-
ty rights but yours as well.
Myproperty's grade to home
stands 9 inches higher than
yours does to keep my land
intact. The permit to build it
was pulled and I can assure
you (they) came and inspect-
ed many times what was
being built and it was built
to the codes at that time. I
added the 4-foot fence in '96
for one reason, to protect
myself and my land.
When I built my 4-foot
retaining wall and 4-foot
fence I was not married, but
a single parent of five chil-
dren, so once again you have
no facts as to my personal
life. I had many family
members at different times
help me, as well as employ-
ees at that time help build
what I had. ...
What you cannot fathom
is that it doesn't depend on


me to tell the facts on this
issue but I have because it's
the truth. It's amusing that
you would make the word of
a man who doesn't leave the
office in his duties the fact
you would stand behind. He
nor you were ever present on
the many occasions the
city's inspectors were to my
home, nor were you or he at
any of the Sebring Parkway
meetings from 2000 on that I
was present at. You cannot
tell other landowners what
they can do with their prop-
erty no matter how many
calls you make. ...
I've spent more than


$10.000 of my retirement
already and it's taken no less
than $20,000 more in legal
fees to bring this case to
court and fight for my prop-
erty rights. I am a disabled
retiree, not by choice, on a
fixed income and yes I have
no issues asking for help
when I need it and since it
was Pro Bono week I
thought it a perfect time to
ask for help.
I also followed all laws,
rules and regulations that
were in place and went far
beyond code to build some-
thing that would stay in my
family for generations long


after I'm gone. Your retain-
ing wall seems to be crum-
bling Mrs. Morris.
Thank you for testifying
to my stance concerning the
steel rods under my wall in
public record.

Shop, but keep
America healthy
Editor:
Walking into the beautiful
Walmart store in Avon Park
is quite a thrill. Looking at
the vast array of products on
the shelves from all over the
world is a unique experience
and being served by helpful
employees is great.
However, there is a down-
side to this matter. It is the
lowly shopping cart.
On a recent visit my hands
stuck fast to the cart's push-
ing handle because of a
sticky material on it. My
next activity was to visit the
bathroom to scrub my hands
clean. In this era of danger-
ous communicable diseases,
a customer should not have
to be exposed to a contami-
nated shopping cart.
In my opinion, the carts
should be cleaned by some
pass-through device before
being used again, or inex-
pensive towels or gloves
should be provided for the
customer's use. I do believe
that Publix provides some
type of optional protection
like this. Walmart could set
the example for solving this
problem in an inexpensive
way. They can do it!
Let's keep America
healthy.

Eldreds recognized

for service to Arc


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - The
board of directors of Ridge
Area Arc recognized Duane
"Duke" and Marilyn Eldred
for their many years of
service to Arc boards. The
Eldreds recently stepped
down from their respective
boards - Duke from the
Arc Foundation board of
directors where he served
since its inception in 1994,
and Marilyn from the board
of directors for Ridge Area
Arc since prior to 1990.
She held the position of
president from 1995-998
and has served on the exec-
utive committee as the past
president since that time.
The Eldreds by no means


have retired from their vol-
unteer work with the Arc as
they can still be found
working diligently at the
Arc's Resale Store at 899
W. Main St. in Avon Park.
The Eldreds are best known
at the store as Mr. & Mrs.
Santa Claus due to their
efforts in assembling and
decorating Christmas trees
for display.
Ridge Area Arc, located
at 120 W. College Drive in
Avon Park, is a non-profit
charitable organization that
provides opportunities for
people with developmental
and other disabilities. Arc
is funded in part by The
United Way of Central
Florida.

Audit reveals misused

the Transportation trust
Fund."
The audit also pointed
out that on several occa-
sions, one individual com-
pleted a requisition, signed
a receiving report, received
an invoice, approved the
invoice for payment and
initiated increases to the
same purchase order with-
out proper oversight
involved, which is contrary
to the Florida Uniform
Accounting Manual.
The audit additionally
stated that a "lack of inven-
tory controls and a lack of
internal controls" were
found during the research
of the purchase cards of six
Road and Bridge employ-
ees.
Items such as chain saws,
binoculars and digital cam-
eras were purchased by
those employees, but could


not be located.
The 17-page document
again pointed out that the
county should establish, a
written policy to limit the
hauling of clean and
spoiled materials from
Road and Bridge storage
areas, which was an issue
addressed in an audit from
2007.
The audited statistics
pointed out that the coun-
ty's Road and Bridge
department is responsible
for the maintenance and
repair of 977 miles of
paved roads and 202 miles
of unpaved roads.
There are 32 bridges,
under its care, as well as
the county fleet of vehicles,
and the mowing of 13,000
miles of right of ways.
The audit shows that the
county management con-
curred with the findings.

make a difference."
Paul Miller said, "I'm
just glad to be aboard. I'll
do the best job I can. I want
to see Avon Park prosper
and will do everything I can
to make that happen."
Brenda Gray said, "I
would like to thank the cit-
izens for putting their trust
in me one more time. I am
going to do whatever I can
for Avon Park, but people
have to talk to me. Let me
know what you want."
Tonya Marshall, a com-
munity organizer, received
294 votes. Given her lack
of name recognition, and


the fact this was her first
run for public office, she
said she was surprised and
pleased that she received as
many votes as she did.
City council members
serve a three-year term,
which begins with their
swearing-in the first week
of January.
The supervisor of elec-
tions office reports 653
voters cast a total of 1,959
votes Tuesday.
Each voter could vote for
three of the four candi-
dates. Not everyone did,
however. There were 536
under-votes, meaning those
voters did not vote for three
candidates.

Linda and Dick Swenson, volunteers at the Good Shepherd Hospice Forsythe Hospice
House in Auburndale, say a short prayer before entering a patient's room to visit. Linda
and Dick, who live in Sebring, drive to Auburndale each week so they will be prepared to
volunteer at the new Highlands County Hospice House that Good Shepherd Hospice is
building.

to become Good Shepherd
Hospice volunteers," said
Bpcky. "Because of their
direct experiences, they can
speak honestly about the
value hospice can add to
end-of-life care in our com-
munity."
After completing their
volunteer training, Dick and
Linda started seeing hospice
patients. Dick sometimes
ends his patient visits by
playing hymns on his trum-
pet. Linda takes part in vig-
ils to support families during
the final hours of a patient's
life.
But Linda and Dick also
want to contribute to the
future of Good Shepherd
Hospice. "They shared with
me their dreams of volun-
teering in a hospice house in
Highlands County,"
McIntyre said.
That's good news because
last summer the state of
Florida approved Good
Shepherd Hospice's applica-
tion to build the 12-bed
Highlands County Hospice
House on property on
Hammock Road in Sebring.
At the hospice house,
patients needing comprehen-
sive pain control and symp-
tom management will have a
nearby, state-of-the-art facil-
ity where they can receive
compassionate care in a
home-like setting. "
We know how important it
is for hospice patients to
have family and loved ones
close by," said Becky. "All
of us at Good Shepherd
Hospice are thrilled that
patients will receive special-
ized care right here in
Highlands County that is
specific to their unique
needs, in serene surround-
ings, outside of a cold, insti-
tutional environment."
Dick and Linda want to
be ready to volunteer when
the new hospice house opens
its doors, so they decided to
prepare in advance. In addi-
tion to visiting patients in
Highlands County, the cou-
ple now travels 100 miles
round trip to volunteer at
Good Shepherd Hospice's
Forsythe Hospice House in
Auburndale.


Why do they make the
two-hour, 40-minute trip?
"We're only here to serve
the Lord. and to serve oth-
ers," said Linda. "Providing
peace, providing calm, pro-
viding integrity. That's the
most you can give to another
human being."
The Swensons start their
weekly visits to the Forsythe
Hospice House by checking
in with the nursing staff.
They get a feel for the
atmosphere and say a prayer,
"asking the Lord what he
wants us to leave there."
Then Dick and Linda qui-
etly walk the halls, engaging
patients, families and friends
in comforting conversations.
Husbands and fathers have
developed short, yet mean-
ingful, relationships with
Dick. "Sometimes I'm in the
right place at the right time,"
said Dick. "On one visit
recently, a gentleman poured
out his heart to me. He was
in a vulnerable position, and
I think he was grateful to
have another man to talk to."
The Swensons' focused
dedication and calm
demeanor has made a lasting
impression on Good


hospice

Shepherd Hospice staff and
volunteers. "Dick and Linda
are priceless," said Nina
Gilbert, Good Shepherd
Hospice volunteer manager.
"They support our mission
not only by visiting patients
but also by mentoring new
volunteers. They are an
inspiration to all of us."
Dick and Linda know that
ultimately their weekly sac-
rifice of traveling to
Auburndale will be a bless-
ing for Highlands County
families facing end-of-life
issues "Sixty percent of our
community is over 65 years
old," said Dick.
Linda added, "Our com-
munity needs a hospice
house desperately, and we're
blessed to be able to support
Good Shepherd Hospice in
that effort."
Good Shepherd Hospice is
a community-based, not-for-
profit organization that sup-
ports approximately 700
patients each day in Polk,
Highlands and Hardee
County as they face the
challenges of life-limiting
illnesses. The organization
has been a part of the com-
munity since 1979.

I have received more than
$10,000 in free science
materials for my class-
room in the past three
years," Stephan wrote in
an e-mail to the News-
Sun.
Here's how it works:
Public school teachers
from every corner of
America post classroom
project requests on
DonorsChoose.org.
Requests range from.
pencils for a poetry writ-,
ing unit, to violins for a
school recital, to micro-.
scope slides for a biology,
class.
Using a concept called
"citizen philanthropy,"
donators can browse proj-
ect requests and give any
amount to the one project
that catches their eye, or
is close to their heart.
Once a project reaches
its funding goal,
DonorsChoose.org deliv-
ers the materials to the
school.
Donors get photos of
their project being deliv-
ered, a thank-you letter
from the teacher, and a,
cost report showing how,
each dollar was spent.
Donors who give over
$100 also receive hand-
written thank you letters
from the students.
According to their Web
site, contributors to
DonorsChoose.org "can
give as little as $1 and get,
the same level of choice,
transparency, and feed-'
back that is traditionally
reserved for someone'
who gives millions."
"We have been blessed
to receive some real nice
materials through
DonorsChoose," Stephan
wrote.

- Fiddler on the Roof takes
place in Tsarist Russia in
1905. The story depicts
the main character, Tevye,
whose daughters, despite
tradition, each selects her
. own husband. "If I Were
A Rich Man", "Sunrise,
Sunset" and "Matchmaker,
Matchmaker", are catchy
tunes that will play in your
head and your heart for days
after seeing this timeless
Broaqway classic. The
beloved show is a must-see
for any lover of theatre, the
arts, and of course, a good
storv ahnout the strength


-of a father's love for his
. daughters.
OVER THE YEARS REVIEWERS HAVE SAID:
"One of the great works of the American musical theatre. It is darting, touching, beautiful, warm,
funny and inspiring. It is a work of art." -Daily News
"Filled with laughter and tenderness. It catches the essence of a moment in history with
sentiment and radiance. An exceptional accomplishment." -The New York Times
This spellbinding recreation of the wonderful world of Sholom Aleichem...is a joyous affirmation
that America is the world capital of musical comedy...seldom has any musical blended so
magically music and literature." -Cue
"Fiddler on the Roof is like your grandmothers house: a place to renew old values and get your
soul scrubbed out. If you're lucky enough to have it still, be wise enough to visit it often." -New
York Post

News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE
Sebring grad and current South Florida pitcher, Adam Simmons, has accepted an
offer to play with the Florida State Seminoles beginning with the '11 season.



Simmons signs on




with Seminoles


News-Sun staff report
AVON PARK - South
Florida Community
College pitcher Adam
Simmons has committed to
Florida State University
and will join the Seminole
pitching staff in the fall of
2010.
Simmons becomes the
sixth Panther baseball
player to attend Florida
State since 2000, and is
the 95th Panther in the last
10 years to move onto a
four-year school or profes-
sional baseball.
"We are very happy for
Adam and his family.
When he committed to us I
remember him saying that
one day he hoped he would
get a chance to play at
Florida State, it is great
that it has worked out this
way for him," SFCC head
coach Rick Hitt said. "He
has grown and improved a
great deal since leaving
high school. His game has
elevated and the strides he
has made in velocity and
pitch development are a
credit to him working at it
daily within our program."


Simmons was 6-5 with a
4.13 era in 81 innings
pitched as a freshmen.
"Adam statistically got
off to a good start last year
but was forced to come
back on short rest a few
times late in our year when
we had three starters out,"
Hitt said. "His numbers
probably would have been
a bit better than they were
if he was on regular rest."
"That is the way it is
supposed to work," said
Jamey Shouppe pitching
coach and recruiting coor-
dinator at Florida State. "I
get a call from a coach,
who runs an outstanding
program and whose opin-
ion you respect, you go see
his player play, and he is
just what the coach told
you he was. Then the
young man says yes. It is
great when it works out
that way. We are very
excited to have Adam com-
ing in.'
"We are happy for him,
his is a good guy, who
works hard," Hitt said.
"Adam is one in a long line


of former players who have
left our program prepared
for what lies ahead in col-
lege or professionally. It is
really amazing to look
back now after having 10
teams and see how many
guys have gone on from
here. It is a credit to the
time and effort our players
continue to put into daily
improvement in all phas-
es."
Simmons, himself, was
somewhat taken aback.
"It all happened at our
game at Polk last week-
end," he said. "I guess I
was throwing at 92 into the
fourth inning and he said
he'd take 92 anytime.
"It's just kind of surreal
to know that I'll have a
chance to compete on the
Division I level at such a
great school," he contin-
ued. "I have to thank all my
coaches, from Dixie
Leauge to Coach Rewis at
Sebring and Coach Hitt,
here, for making this
opportunity possible. It
shows that all the hard
work can pay off."


Soccer Streaks strike back


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
Tim Boulay's soccer
charges were upset with
themselves after their
Tuesday night match in the
Pre-Season Classic conso-
lation finale - though not
due to a poor effort.
In fact, it was just the
opposite, as the team
bounced back from
Monday's 3-2 loss to
Bartow to boot Lakeland,
Sebring 3-1.
" W e
S played a
much better
Lakeland game , "
Boulay said.
1 "The guys
weren't too
happy. They were saying if
they'd have played this
way last night, they would
have been in the champi-
onship game. And with the
way we were playing, we'd
have given Auburndale a
really good game."
Scoring for the Blue
Streaks were Buck
Schroeder and Octavio
Galvan, each netting their
second goal in as many
matches, as well as
Gustavo Galvan, while
Octavio and Cody Watson
each helped out with an

Buck Schroeder turned to his "lucky cleats" to score a

Sebring's 3-1 win over Lakeland Tuesday night.


assist.
The Sebring defense
stepped up as well, espe-
cially with goalkeeper
Jesse Ouverson out with a
deep thigh bruise suffered
in Monday's match.
"Ethan Smith, a fresh-
man, was in the net for us,"
Boulay said. "At first, we
might have thought that
would be our weak link, so


the defense really hustled
and helped him out."
Which resulted in
Lakeland getting just nine
shots on goal for the game,'
compared to the 20 that the
Streaks peppered the
Dreadnaught keeper with.
Smith was up to the chal-
lenge, however, recording
eight saves and giving up a

Last Week
Avon Park: Gave Lake Highland Prep
a scare in 23-19 loss.
Tampa Cath.: Handled Mulberry with
24-14 win. * + 'l ;:
Game Notes
n Another tough test for the Red
Devils, who keep coming close in a
season full of tough tests, asTampa
Catholic is undefeated and third in
Class 2B state rankings.
m Guy Bower (shoulder), Frenando
Perez (shoulder) and Caligo Hipps
(concussion) are out with injury for
this week's game.
Coach Speak
Avon Park's Andy Bonjokian:
Tampa Catholic is a really good
football team and the guys are excited
about this one. It gives us a chance to
really step-up and play our game. Guy
Bower is out again with an injured
shoulder, and it hurts not having him
on the line, but we are going to try to
throw a couple of wrinkles in there
this week."


Records
Lake Placid 4-4; Gateway 0-8
Last Week
Lake Placid: Couldn't muster enough
offense in 20-3 loss to Dunbar.
Gateway: Got thumped by Island
Coast, 66-6.
Game Notes
* Running back Caleb Jones became
the first Green Dragon to crack the
1,000 yard mark - with two games
still to play - since Sedric Clark did so
11.years ago.
* Jones and the Lake Placid offense
could well have a big day against a
Gateway Charter defense that has
given up points at a 50 per-game clip.
* Kick-off for tonight's game is at 7
p.m. at Gateway Charter.
Coach Speak
Lake Placid's Jason Holden: "We are
looking at Gateway Charter on the
road this week, and we expect to win.
They run a spread offense with four or
five receivers. They throw the ball a
lot, but we are ready for that. We've
had a good week of practice and the
guys are ready to go."

Game Notes
* The Blue Streak offense struggled
last week but looks to get back on
track against aTenoroc squad that has
surrendered an average of 35 points

* Running back Daniel Burnett's
high-ankle sprain is still not 100-

limited action last week and will be in
the backfield tonight.
Coach Speak
Sebring's Jared Hamlin: "They may
not be a Lake Wales or Winter Haven,
but that doesn't change how we
prepare at all. A football game is a
football game and on any given night,
anything can happen.Tenoroc beat a
Lake Nona team that has some
weapons last week and I was
surprised by that."

Gentry does Devils proud


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
"One bad hole, you can
recover from, two bad holes it
gets a little iffy," Suzie Gentry
said. "Three bad holes is just
really hard to recover from."
Which is what it came down
to for Avon Park junior Greg
Gentry at the Class 1A State
Golf Championships on a wind-
whipped second day of compe-


tition - leaving him short of his
goal of a top-ten finish, and yet
well within the top half, tying
for 39th among a field of 94.
"The wind really kicked up
the second day and most of the
scores went up," Suzie Gentry
said. "And I think it just took
it's toll, overall. High school
tournaments, the kids walk nine
holes, at districts, they walk 18.
Here, they were walking 36, and


if you include Monday's prac-
tice round, most were walking
54 holes over three days."
Gentry started strong, firing a
75 during his practice round
Monday and lowering that to a
one-over 73 on the first day of
competition on the Juliette Fall
Golf Course in Dunnellon - put-
ting him in a tie for 18th.

regional loss marked the end of her 12 years at the helm of the Lady Dragons.


Lady Dragon season, Jones


career comes to an end


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID - It came
to an end a bit too soon and
just a tad too suddenly
Tuesday night.
Seeking their first regional
win, and to extend their
coach's career at least one
more game, the Lady Dragons
couldn't accomplish either in
falling to the Marauders of
Clearwater Central Catholic in
three straight.
"I would have liked to have


extended it a bit, at least," that
head coach, Marilyn Jones
said. "We've usually been
able to go four games or so,
but we just started out too
slow tonight."
And against a team of the
talent level of the Lady
Marauders, starting out too
slow can dig too big of a hole
to climb back out of.
Yet, it wasn't so much a
dominant first game by
Clearwater, so much as that


slow start, the hesitations, the
back-on-their heels play of
Lake Placid that told the tale.
After scoring the opening
point of the night, the Dragons
quickly fell back by 10-2, 15-
5 and 24-12 scores before it
ended at 25-13.
But it seemed the girls
found their legs and the nerves
subsided come the second set
as they battled back from a 5-
2 deficit to take a 6-5 lead.

Snowbirds migrating to
Florida might be the most
obvious signs of the onset of
fall for some full-time resi-
dents of the state, but
wildlife is also keenly reac-
tive to the accompanying
seasonal changes that
include shorter days and
cooler weather.
We've written before
about cold fronts and their
effects on migratory birds,
but almost all wildlife
responds to fall seasonal
changes, though sometimes
in dissimilar fashion.
So do people.
As for birds, Neotropical
migrants are setting up shop
locally for the winter or
fueling up for a longer trip
to the Caribbean or South
America.
Local bird feeders are
being visited by many
species, and increased num-
bers of ducks, other migrato-
ry waterfowl and wading
birds dot our large lakes,
rivers, beaches and freshwa-
ter ponds and tidal marshes.
As for birds of prey,
northern harriers can be seen
actively gliding over marsh
areas, and Cooper's hawks
will be on the prowl for the
new feeding opportunities
brought on by the vast
migration of smaller bird
species into Florida.
Eagles are engaged in
spectacular aerial courtships,
while their osprey cousins
rebuild nests, high on a wide
variety of naked perches
close to their fishing sites.
Not surprisingly, people
react to these fall migrations
too, by putting out backyard
feeders to attract birds.
But don't be surprised if
your backyard bird feeder
creates an ambush point for
birds of prey like Cooper's
hawks.
That's Mother Nature -
sort of.
Bird feeders also can cre-


As I See It
Rodney Barreto
ate health problems for
migrating birds, so don't for-
get to clean your bird feed-
ers regularly with a 10-pre-
cent solution of chlorine
bleach to help prevent the
spread of disease.
We owe it to these tiny
migrating birds, some having
survived a grueling 2,000-
mile journey punctuated by
bad weather and other life-
threatening issues, not to let
them to become victims of
reckless human kindness by
feeding them in unsanitary
conditions.
To top off the aerobatic
bird festival, majestic sand-
hill cranes and white peli-
cans add to the variety of air
show performers taking up
winter residence.
Remember, there are good
reasons not to feed either of
these species, neither of
which benefit from the prac-
tice.
Deliberately feeding peli-
cans at fish-cleaning stations
is illegal. Feeding sandhill
cranes anywhere is illegal.
As for reptiles, including
native snakes, alligators, tur-
tles and a variety of other
cold-blooded animals, the
season for high activity is
winding down.
Just don't forget that
though the metabolic rates of
cold-blooded animals
decrease with temperature,
alligators are still capable of
acting as apex predators, and
all cautions in the FWC's


"Living With Alligators"
brochure, need to be
observed with due respect.
On the other hand, mam-
mals are quite active during
the fall, and that includes
the Florida black bear.
Although black bears
don't hibernate in Florida,
they prepare for it by enter-
ing a period of activity in
the fall, called hyperphagia.
Hyperphagia is a behavior
in all black bears that causes
them to feed at twice the
normal daily rate they need
to maintain themselves.
This behavior is likely the
result of a gene that causes
bears to put on weight in
preparation for a hibernation
period that in Florida, never
comes.
Here, the caution to resi-
dents living in bear country
is to secure all trash and pet
food in places and in ways
that cannot attract a bear.
Appreciating wildlife
from a distance beats appre-
ciating it from inside your
lanai or garage, especially if
it's a bear.
Deer, hogs and squirrels
are feeding actively, and of
course, that signals the onset
of hunting season.
Hunters were the first
conservationists, and like all
conservationists, hunters
have a vested interest in see-
ing that all wildlife, whether
it is hunted or not, continues
to proliferate.
Obeying the letter and the
intent of the law, and insist-
ing your hunting partners do
the same, is a great starting
place from which to build an
appreciation of all wildlife.
Be you a snowbird, bird
watcher, hunter, all around
nature lover, pet owner or
just somebody who appreci-
ates living in the Sunshine
State, fall is a time of
thanksgiving and of wildlife.
Enjoy!


Gentry ties for 39th at State
Continued from 1B
But the conditions turned
blustery on Wednesday and
the scores started to rise.
"He had three errant tee-
shots that got him into the
trees," Gentry said of her son.
"So those turned out to be the
three bad holes and that
knocked Hfim back a bit."
Back to an 81 for the day
and a 154 total for the tourna-
ment.
"He was disappointed he
didn't reach his goal of the
top-ten, but he said he just
saw it as another tournament
on a golf course he hadn't
played," Gentry said.
A great mindset for a
golfer, and one obviously
honed by his past success.
"He's won two district
tournaments, has advanced to
regionals three times and
now, as a junior, made it to
state," Gentry said. "It was
just a wonderful experience.
He's hard to get much out of
sometimes, but I know it was
an honor for him to be there."
And the experience gained
can only help him next season
in reaching his goal of getting News-Sun file photo by ED BALDI
back and adding 'just another Greg Gentry represented Avon Park well at the State
tournament' to his schedule Golf Championships this week, tying for 39th among
and accomplishments, golfers over the two-day event.

The third, and final set,

But the Marauders
marched to a seven-point
run to take command and
hold the margin for a 25-17

" I wish we would have
won, but in the end, every

ior Sierra Weaver said. "We

ing the fifth straight district

loss and the departure of
Jones after her long and suc-
cessful tenure, it was the
coach bringing the girls
together one more time and
leading the post-game chant
and cheer.
"The girls played hard
and have a lot to be proud
of," Jones said. "They've
been great to work with. I
know I'll miss it, but I don't
think it's quite hit me yet."

although
attempts have been made to
educate the public about this
dreaded disease.
This is my own story.
I nearly ran from the Los
Angeles County General
Hospital in the 1980s. My vol-
untary reaction to the realiza-
tion that I had recovered from
mental illness was, "I made it!
I made it!" In the midst of the
celebration,'my father and I
recalled, as we walked away
the horrible events that had
made this hospital a dungeon
of despair for me 28 years.
before.
At age 16 an episode in my
life changed my perception,
upset my goals, and plunged
me into hopeless desponden-
cy. I had completed my soph-
omore year of senior high, a
near straight A student with
high goals and aspirations. I
could not understand when
physical and emotion exhaus-
tion began nipping at my
heels. The changes that were
occurring in my body and
psyche were further enigmas,
adding to my exhaustion.
Within a short period of
time, I experienced rejection
by a former girlfriend at youth
camp and walked in a trance
for the duration of camp. But,
I had to plod on. The follow-
ing week I was employed as a
camp counselor for a cabin
full of preteen bombshells at
junior camp. I was frightened
by this awesome responsibili-
ty, my first camp counseling
experience, and the campers,,
had me 'climbing ihe "alls.' /
I went home before the
close of the camp with a great
sense of failure at,my inade-
quacy as a counselor. At
home, I withdrew into a shell
and remained alone in my
room. I was afraid to see any-
one; especially those at church
who had been at the camp. �
My parents were alarmed at
the sudden change in my emo-
tional behavior and arranged
an appointment with our fami-
ly doctor. After a thorough
examination the doctor
expressed concern about my
physical and emotional condi-
tion. He advised immediate
treatment for hypertension and
injected medication to reduce
my blood pressure and slow
down my system; "to avert a
possible heart attack or
stroke," he said.
Immediately on my return
home, I suffered a reaction to
the medicii.e and went into,
convulsions' I was rushed by,
ambulance to the Los Aneeless
County General Hospitau,
examined in the emergency
room, arid transported to the
psychiatric and jail ward.
Three days and nights of a
living "hell" followed. I was
the only teenager in a ward of
50 shouting, screaming, curs-
ing males, making verbal
threats to "get me." I was ter-
rified. I neither left my bed or
room nor engaged in conver-
sation with anyone. I with-
drew, like a turtle in its shell,
into a near catatonic state. '
My parents visited me and
seemed to me like angels. I
wanted to be with them, yet
felt strangely separated from
them. Although aware of my
situation, I felt at the same
time as though I was in a
dense fog observing a video-
tape of myself, not able to
control what was happening to
me.


After 72 hours of primitive
therapy and observation, the
psychiatrist met with my par-

be transferred to Camarillo
State Hospital or sent home
for outpatient treatment with a
psychiatrist. His diagnosis
was a "nerve blockage,"

them," said Denise

Give me that


old-time religion


As the old
Gospel song says,
"'d rather be an
old-time Christian
than anything I
know." I am glad
to be saved and
serving God. I
have the privilege
to preach the old
Book and the new
Birth. I am not
ashamed to be


Timeless
Treasure
Zuke
Knickerbocker


called old-fashioned. Some
may say I'm narrow-mind-
ed, but I'm on the narrow
way.
Churches are in trouble
today, because they have
veered away from the old
paths. Jeremiah 6:16 says,
"Thus saith the LORD,
Stand ye in the ways, and
see, and ask for the old
paths, where is the good
way, and walk therein, and
ye shall find rest for your
souls, But they said, We
will not walk therein."
We need to return to the
old paths that are tried and
true. Today, people seek
some new thing: whether
it's a new experience, a
new Bible, a new church, a
new spouse, or a new job.
Ecclesiastes says, "There is
nothing new under the
sun." What we need is to
get back to the old-time
religion.
. When we see what the
Bible says about salvation,
doctrine and living, we
know this is what God.
wants us to know, believe
and follow. We learn about
God and his character. As
he says in Malachi, "I
change not." God has not
. changed, nor his Word
changed. Everybody seems
to be clamoring for change
now days, but it rarely


leads to some-
thing better.
Proverbs says,
"Meddle not with
them that are
given to change."
Be thankful if
you have a church
that still stands by
the old paths, with
old-fashioned
preaching, tradi-
tional singing,


conservative values, and
upholds a distinction from
worldliness. Pray for your
pastor and his family to
continue to walk in the old
paths, to remain faithful to
the Old King James Bible
and remain uncompromis-
ing to truth. Be one who
can be counted on to carry
the torch to lighten the
way on the old paths.
Sadly, many churches
have ceased to stand by the
Word of God. The old
paths have been abandoned
because they are unpopular
or considered to be "out-
dated." But the conse-
quences are great:
Churches have been weak-
ened, worship has been
cheapened, believers ren-0
dered ineffective, and the
lost hardened. Parents have
forgotten God and his
ways, and now children are
forsaking God. We must
return to the old paths, lest
the pathway altogether is
lost. The old paths are God
ordained, proven and
blessed.

term treatment.
My parents chose to take
me home and arrange for
outpatient treatment with a
Christian psychiatrist. In
both treatment and ultimate
recovery, this decision*
turned out to be most signifi-
cant in determining my
future and career.
After a few months of
treatment, loving and sup-
portive care from my family,
and prayers of hundreds of
Christian friends within our
church community and
around the world, I began a
gradual recovery.
I returned to school, after
missing a semester. Yet, with
summer school, I graduated
with my class. I was chosen
as the bass singer to sing
with a mixed quartet at the
graduation ceremony. This
achievement was the begin-
ning of my career as a musi-
cian for more than 40 years.
In the years following
graduation from college, I
entered a full-time ministeri-
al career. After a dozen years
as a missionary representa-
tive and pastor, I entered
chaplaincy ministries in
nursing homes and hospitals..
All of these experiences
brought fulfillment and led
me into clinical chaplaincy
residency training.
During this residency pro-
gram, I became acutely
aware of my intense pain in
my teens 25 years earlier. I
was afraid to make contact
with patients on the psychi-
atric unit, as it was a con-
stant reminder of my own
history of mental illness.
Yet, through the help of
my supervisors, peers, and
patients I encountered on the
unit, I was able to affirm my
past history, not as a dark
shadow or weakness in my


'Shadows, scars


and stars'


I hr . pha&rMa


life, but eventually as a
strength in my ministry.
I could readily identify
with patients in their pain of
depression, fear, isolation,
loneliness, and rejection,
which I had encountered in
my past. I was also able to
affirm to them the hope of
recovery evidenced by my
own experience.
In the subsequent years,
following that initial experi-..
ence, I have ministered to
hundreds of youth and adults
through encounters in acute.
health care, community
mental health care, geriatric:.
hospital and nursing care
centers. I have literally been
able to change my shadow
and scars into stars.
It was on a family vaca-
tion in California in the mid-'
'80s when I joined my fathe?
in visiting again the LA
County General Medical
Center. We walked with the '
chaplain through the psychi-
atric wards where I had been
a.patient 28 years earlier. Is :
it any wonder that my
excitement and exhilaration
nearly overwhelmed me? "I.,
made it! I made it!" Thank
God for his Healing grace!
Today I celebrate more
than 50 years of complete
healing from mental illness
without any medication. I
continue to minister to those
wounded by thisdisorder and
proclaim freedom in Christ
Jesus!
Paul writes these powerful
words, "For when I am weak
... I am strong!" (II
Corinthians 12:8)
