County saying thank you


to veterans in a big way


News-Sun staff

County have made it clear
through the number of spe-
cial events scheduled today
that they not only remember the
men and women who served this
country in the military - during
peace and during war - but they
intend to honor them as well.
Ceremonies will be taking place
all day, from early morning school
programs to a service at the County
Veterans Services Office at 1 p.m.,
to a parade in Sebring at 4 p.m., to
a candlelight ceremony at Devane
Park in Lake Placid at 6 p.m.
The county's appreciation is not a
one-day affair either.
From the Heartland Idol organiz-
ers' constant reminders to their
audience to treat the Historic
Circle's War Memorial with respect,
to the inclusion of prayers for those
currently in danger during city
council invocations, the people of
Highlands County keep those who
serve close to their hearts.
Today is simply a day when their
appreciation is the most vocal and
obvious.
From elementary classrooms to
the halls of the VFW or American
Legion, people of all ages will join
today to say thank you.
Here's a list of today's planned
services:

A service is scheduled for
today at the new Veteran
Services Office in Sebring.
The ceremony, to begin at 1 p.m.
in front of the building, is spon-
sored by the County Veterans
Services Office, Veterans Advisory
Board and the Veterans Council of
Highlands County, Inc.
Joseph A. Dionne, county veteran
services officer, will open the cere-
mony. Denise Williams, service
officer, will give the Invocation.


Patriotic songs will be under the
direction of Shannon Marrero. Ira
Anderson, commander of the U.S.
Military Veterans Motorcycle Club,
is scheduled to explain the purpose
of the event.
Guest speakers slated for the
Veterans Day ceremony include
Sebring CRA Director Pete Pollard
hm 'Yngressman Tom Rooney of
the 16th Congressional District. The
benediction will be by Rabbi
Lorraine Rudenberg, Temple Israel
of Highlands County. The Color
Guard from VFW Post 4300 will be
in charge of posting the colors and
ending the ceremony with a Firing
Salute.
"Taps" will be played by David
Flowers, director Facilities
Management for Highlands County.
The JROTC from Lake Placid High
School will be assisting with partic-
ipation of their color guard.
Refreshments will follow. VFW
4300 will hold a flag-raising cere-
mony at its post following the coun-
ty's ceremony.

Avon Park residents will
have an event at 11 a.m.
today at Southside Veterans Garden
(also known as the Triangle), at the
corner of Tulane Drive and South
Verona Avenue. Refreshments will
be served after the recognition pro-
gram honoring the veterans.

S The Military Sea Services
Museum will hold a ceremo-
ny honoring former Merchant
Marine Seaman Bob Knickerbocker
of Lake Placid at 10:30 a.m.

Motorcycle Club and the

ernment money in the long run.
Storm Mitigation Grants are
designed to prevent problems before
they happen, Nichols told the News-
Sun in a Local Mitigation Strategy
meeting.
The county discovers what prob-
lems have occurred in the past, such
as wind damage during a hurricane,
then the county proposes a solution in
the form of a grant request.
As federal funding becomes avail-

able, the projects are approved
because it is estimated that for every
$1 spent on fixing problems, or miti-
gation, $2 are saved in emergency
responses and rebuilding, Nichols
said.
In the case of the Health
Department and the Bert J. Harris
Center, spending money now to bring
them up to current wind compliance
recommendations should reduce the
need for repairs in the future.


Former

AP cop

months

in prison

Perez made
plea deal in
extortion case
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Alberto
Perez, a former Avon
Park police officer, plead-
ed guilty Monday morn-
ing to charges of extor-
tion and official miscon-
duct.
Per the plea agreement
Perez entered into, he was
sentenced to 18 months in
the Florida State Prison
system and an additional
42 months of probation.
Perez has been jailed
since May 21 and
received credit for time
already served.
Perez was arrested on
Dec. 2, 2008 on charges
of extortion, shortly after
his partner, Adam Willis,
was arrested on Nov. 19
on charges of grand theft
and burglary with a
firearm.

J une
2008 in
reference
to com-
plaints
that Avon
Park offi-
cers were
stealing Perez
Hispanic citizens.
According to police
reports, citizens who
were stopped for traffic
incidents were encour-
aged to pay the officers
between $200 and $300
to avoid being written a
ticket.
An undercover opera-
tion was set up on Nov.
16 with a vehicle made to
look like it was aban-
doned on the side of the
road.
The arrest report stated
that Willis was caught on
video stealing $310 from
inside the vehicle and not
making any attempts to
locate its owner.
When he was arrested,
Willis allegedly still had
$40 of the marked bills in
his pocket.
Willis pled no contest
to grand theft in May of
this year, and the burglary
with a firearm charges
were dropped in a plea
bargain where Willis
agreed to "cooperate"
with the state's attorney's
office on their investiga-
tion of Perez.


County approves retro-fits to Health Department, Ag Center


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Highlands County
Commissioners voted 4-0 on Tuesday
to allow retro-fits to the Health
Department and to the Bert J. Harris
Agricultural Center to make them
wind compliant.
Emergency Management Director
Bill Nichols presented a couple of
federally funded subgrants that would
help to upgrade the buildings to the
new compliance standards.
According to Nichols in an earlier
interview, these grants actually save
both the county and the federal gov-


The original bid request for the
Health Department, located at 7205
S. George Blvd., was for $250,000,
and that amount was made available
to Highlands County.
The low estimate for the work from
Trinity Construction Company came
in at $189,339.
Because the bids came in lower
than expected, the county saved an
additional $47,335 in matching
funds, according to Nichols.
"Sometimes, it pays to wait. By
waiting this long, construction costs

State sheriffs meet

in Sebring to discuss

common issues


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - Sheriff
Susan Benton played host to
the sheriffs of Central and
South Florida Tuesday mom-
ing at Inn on the Lakes as
they meet for a groundbreak-
ing gathering to network,
compare problems, discuss
common issues and brain-
storm on policy.
They also are discussing
recent changes in the law and
how to adapt to those
changes.
The sheriffs of Monroe,
Broward, Miami-Dade,
Okeechobee, Martin, Glades,
Hendry, Charlotte, Hardee,
DeSoto, Manatee, Sarasota,
Sumter, and St. Lucie coun-
ties took part.
The meeting, held through
the Florida Sheriff's
Association, was facilitated
by Jim. Sewell, a former
assistant superintendent of
the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement and cur-
rently a professor at Florida
State University.
Lisa Burley, Benton's chief
of staff, said the sheriffs have
been meeting for several


days, in different venues,
working to coordinate their
approach, not just in enforc-
ing the law, but to holding
state political leaders
accountable for their votes on
public safety legislation.
Burley said the days of
automatic political endorse-
ments are a thing of the past.
The sheriffs will be look-
ing closely at voting records,
proposed legislation, and an
individual's support of
unfunded mandates, before
backing any candidate for
public office.
"They will be holding the
legislator's feet to the fire,"
she said.
One issue facing all the
sheriffs, Burley added, is the
new union contract proposed
by the Police Benevolent
Association that poses a spe-
cial challenge. While negoti-
ations have not begun, the
PBA is "asking for the moon"
at a time when law enforce-
ment budgets are facing
another year of decreases.
Highlands County deputies
were unaware of the PBA's
demands, Burley said.

Story time,

lap-sits to

continue

at Sebring

library
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING
Children's Librarian
Michelle Skyers has
recently moved home to
New York to be closer to
her family. To continue
the long tradition of story
times and lap-sits,
Sebring Library Assistant
Debbie Frisco, an experi-
enced children's librarian
and school media special-
ist, will be replacing
Skyers by presenting
weekly story times for
ages. 3-5 at 10 a.m. every
Wednesday and infant
lap-sits for children under
3 at 10:30 a.m. every
other Wednesday.
Using the wonderful
collection of materials
left to her by Skyers,
Frisco will create fun
themes each week. She
will read books following
the weekly themes, using
" puppets and flannel
boards to tell stories, sing
songs, read poetry and
nursery rhymes and do
movement games and fin-
ger-plays to create fun,
educational and action-
filled story times.
So far, the library has
had "farm day" and "fish
day." This month the
themes will be monkeys,
Dr. Seuss and
Thanksgiving.
The library will be
closed today, so there will
be no story times on that
day. Parents with babies
and preschoolers are wel-
come to sit in on the pre-
school story time with
their babies, as well as
attending the infant lap-
sit.
Free board books are
given to little ones com-
pliments of the Born to
Read program. This is a
great way for children to
meet other kids their age
and for parents to connect
with other parents.
Call the library at 402-
6716 or stop by the chil-
dren's room for a copy of
the story time schedule
for November.

ny offers the opportunity to
take a short pause in our

Eagle Scout plans
candlelight vigil, flag
ceremony in LP
An evening Veterans
N O Day ceremony will be
held at 6 p.m. in Devane
Park this evening organized
by Boy Scout Troop 482
Eagle Scout candidate
Thomas Bunton, 16.
Bunton wanted to do
something special for the
town of Lake Placid, while
fulfilling the requirements
for the Eagle Scout rank.
He decided to provide his
fellow citizens with a safe
receptacle for worn out U. S.
flags.
The receptacle will be
dedicated during the ceremo-
ny, which will close with a
candlelight vigil honoring all
American veterans.
Current members of the
armed forces are encouraged
to bring yellow candles,
civilian first responders
white candles, and those
who have lost a loved one in


the active duty military, or
as an active police officer,
firefighter, or emergency
medical technician are urged
to bring black candles.
Bunton not only raised the
money to pay for the recep-
tacle and the concrete for its
foundation, he poured the
slab as well.
By demonstrating his abil-
ity to organize an event, and
manage people to achieve a
goal, Bunton will have ful-
filled his responsibilities as
an Eagle Scout candidate.
He is a sophomore at Lake


Placid High School and
plays varsity baseball and i
football. He is a member of
the Army Junior Reserve
Officer Training Corps, the
Youth for Christ, and is an
active member of the
Memorial Methodist Church
in Lake Placid.
He hopes to attend the U.
S. Naval Academy, and
wants to be a Marine Corps
pilot.

We civilians have been at
each other's throats now long
enough.
If men of vastly different
backgrounds and beliefs can
face death together and sur-
vive by joining together,
there is no earthly reason we
civilians can't.
It is understandable, prob-
ably even healthy, for men
and women facing combat to
be afraid.
But, it's not good for civil-
ians to be afraid of ideas, or
change. That kind of fear
leads individuals to be rude,
hateful, or dismissive, and
that weakens democracy, it
doesn't strengthen it.
Just because our neighbor
doesn't agree with us, does-
n't mean that neighbor is a
traitor or unpatriotic.

through a Civil War, through
very conservative and very

through totally incompetent
presidents. Yet we are still
here.
So as we celebrate the men
and women who came

needed them to fight. Think
about how we can come
together to make the country
a better, stronger place.

Free trade, or 'unfair
trade'?
Editor:
A prescription for failure, to allow
nations with huge masses and low wage
to trade with America "Duty Free." The
biggest lie ever prescribed for the
United States on trade, well regulated
tariff is the only tool any nation in the
world can use to make sure that their
economy is safe guarded against
"dumping," by other nations who have
huge numbers of people such as China,
India and European Common Market
who work for much lower wages. This
line of "Free Trade" has lowered the
middle class wage scale where we have
a complete financial collapse and a
complete collapse of America's indus-
trial might. America must rebuild its
industrial base, to do less is to allow a
complete take over by global powers.
The only large company I see rebuild-
ing its American industrial base is
General Electric.
Americans should demand tariffs, be
used to force industries to rebuild in
America. To do this, companies who
have moved out of America for cheap
wages will have to pay tariffs to get
their products back into the States. To
do less is financial collapse. The
European Common Market has violated
the sovereignty of many nations to
form the "ECM," controlling all
nations involved, wage scale. The idea
that an American worker can compete
against the low wage scale of China,
India, ECM wage earners and still pay
mortgages and the cost of living, as
well as paying for the military defense
of most of the world is only believed
by idiots.
That probably means all of our top
leaders, the President and Congress
included are idiots. Demand that your
Congressman lead or step down. To do
less is to hear that promised, grant-
sucking sound, as America goes down

the drain.
In the past 50 years, those who pro-
moted "Free Trade" have sold America
and we now have "no industry." Try to
buy an American-made product. 4
Demand tariffs to level the playing
field. NAFTA, COFTO and all of our'
past trade deals have failed all
Americans. Those 30 million plus and
growing, who 'are laid off should raise
hell with our leadership, or I should say
lack of leadership. Change the 22nd

Crist is a true politician
Editor:
A recent hiews article, "Crist foe
casting bigger shadow" (Tampa
Tribune), got me thinking that astute
voters need to look closely at this
"foe." In reading the news reports, and
having personally heard Marco Rubio
speak at a Republican fundraiser, I
think he is a quality, viable replacement
for our governor. What I have seen of
Mr. Crist is that he is a walking defini-
tion of a politician: He is a great
fundraiser, a pleasant fellow, and is
very good at "hail-fellow-well-met," so
he is an asset to social or political gath-
erings. However, if his actions as
Governor of our state are indicative of
what he will do for Florida in the
Senate, we might want to look deeper.
What comes instantly to my mind
was briefly referred to in the article:
with one face he decried President
Obama's stimulus plan, but with the
other he quickly accepted the money.
Now, if he intended to accept the
money, would, it not have been wiser to
keep quiet about his dislike of the
plan?
In addition, it seems (in his example
of being a tried and true politico) he
only ran for Governor as a stepping
stone to higher office. He has done


very little but shake hands and smile
when it comes right down to it. As our
Senator, would he bring us help or just
start his campaigning for President? He
has already let it slip that he might be
interested... The latest in his interesting
moves is the fact that he was unaware
(for whatever reason - he gave a few)
that our President was to be in Florida
for the opening of the very solar busi-
ness Crist had signed the declaration
for in his first months in office. Here
again, he was out campaigning.
Interesting.
Now Marco Rubio may be young and
relatively new to this profession, but he
has already taken his representation of
his constituents seriously. He is actual-
ly doing things for those who voted for
him. Perhaps we could use someone
who works for the people of Florida,
the reason after all, for his election.

Mulligans is a gem of a
restaurant
Editor:
I would like to recommend "a gem of
a restaurant" to the people of
Highlands County. This "jewel" of an
eatery is Mulligans located in the Golf
Hammock Community. The managers
of this restaurant are the friendliest
people you would ever want to serve
you and the food is all homemade
(right down to the gravy and salad
dressing).
Breakfast and lunch are served daily
and dinners are served on Thursday and
Friday night.
So take a drive down Hammock
Road, turn into Golf Hammock and
"discover a gold mine " of delicious
food, courteous service, and reasonable
prices. (I have never had a bad meal

When then-Governor
Ronald Reagan introduced
returning POW John McCain
at a speaking engagement in
1974, the future president
asked, "Where do we find
such men?"
He was speaking of many
veterans, when he answered,
"We find them in our streets,
in the office, the shops and
the working places of our
country and on the farms."
In other words, President
Reagan was referring to
ordinary people accomplish-
ing extraordinary things.
And it isn't just the men.
Army Spc. Monica Brown
was still a teenager when she
went on a routine patrol as a
medic in Afghanistan in
2007. Caught under insur-
gent fire in Paktika
Province, she and her pla-
toon sergeant ran a few hun-
dred yards toward a burning
Humvee.
Dodging rounds by only
inches, Brown helped pull
injured soldiers from the
vehicle and rendered life-
saving first aid. For her
actions, she was awarded a
Silver Star, the nation's third
highest combat decoration.
When she enlisted at age
17, the native of Lake
Jackson, Texas, had hopes of
becoming an X-ray techni-
cian, but the Army con-
vinced her that being a
medic would offer her the
greatest opportunity to help
her fellow soldiers. But to
credit the Monica Browns
and other brave heroes in
our military with helping
only their comrades is short-
sighted. They are helping us.
It is America, not America's
military, that al Qaeda and
other terrorists have declared
war on.
Fewer than 10 percent of
Americans can claim the
title "military veteran," and
what a list of accomplish-
ments can those 10 percent
claim. From defeating com-
munism, fascism and imperi-
alism, to keeping the peace
during the Cold War and bat-
tling terrorism today,
America owes a debt to her
veterans that can never be
fully repaid.
Historians have said that
Dwight Eisenhower was
prouder of being a soldier
than he was of being the
president. While relatively
few veterans reach the rank
of general, pride in one's
military service is a bond
shared by nearly all who
have served.
The pride is on display on
every obituary page in the
country, where military serv-

* ice - regardless of how
many decades have passed
and subsequent achieve-
ments reached - is men-
tioned with the death notice
of nearly every deceased
veteran.
Can any CEO or distin-
guished Ivy League graduate
truly claim to have more
responsibility than the 20-
year-old squad leader walk-
ing a patrol in Afghanistan
or Iraq? While the successful
real estate mogul may have
sold hundreds of homes and
raised a wonderful family,
what single accomplishment
tops the decisive actions he
took during the siege of Khe
Sanh, which saved the lives
of several of his fellow
Marines?
As leader of the nation's
largest veterans organization,
it is my job to remember the
brave men and women who
have worn the uniform of the
United States military. The
Preamble to the Constitution
of The American Legion
calls on us to "preserve the
memories and incidents of
our associations in the Great
Wars." But those who have
not served, in fact, all
Americans, should honor the
patriots who have.
The American Legion
(www.legion.org) supports
our heroes through programs
such as Heroes to
Hometowns, Operation
Comfort Warriors and ready-
to-assist service officers.
We support the families of
veterans through a Family
Support Network, the
American Legion Legacy
Scholarship Fund and
Temporary Financial
Assistance, just to name a
few of our programs.
We call on all Americans
to thank veterans and let
them know that their sacri-
fices are appreciated.
Veterans Day is not about
sales at the local retail mall.
It's about honoring our
heroes.
While veterans are often
ordinary people who accom-
plish extraordinary things, it
is often an extraordinary
family that supports the ordi-
nary veteran. And it is the
veterans that have given us
this extraordinary country.

Clarence E. Hill, is national
commander of the 2.5 million-
member American Legion, the
nation's largest wartime veter-
ans organization.

HLT an example of how the family

that plays together stays together


"The family that plays together
stays together." This motto could
have been written for Highlands
Little Theatre. The current show,
"Fiddler on the Roof," has a cast
and crew of more than 50. We
have all manor of family relation-
ships: grandparents, their chil-
dren and grandchildren, couples,
parents and children, brothers
and sisters from the ages of 8 to
93.
Guess who the 93 year old is
... (a line from the show ...
"Guess ... you'll never guess, I'll
tell you.") He is Edward, my hus-
band. That keeps me from being
the qldest. The sweetest is the
one where a young couple went
to the high school homecoming
dance together.
Be careful what you wish for. I
tried out for the part of Yenta the
Matchmaker. To use another line
from the show, "I got it!" So for
the'last eight weeks and for the
next three weeks we will spend
four or five days at the theatre.
And we aren't even helping to
build the set ... out of considera-
tion for our age, one of the bene-
fits. We even have chairs with
our names on it. I think they just
want to keep us out of the way.
Most of the cast are building
the town of Anatevka ...a house,
a barn, a bar ... even an exquisite
night sky complete with stars and
moon ... truly a work of art. The
director is up and down on a 25-
foot ladder; Joyce paints a wall,
then runs tape in rows that
becomes bricks. Larry built a
wagon that everyone wants for
their yard, but all will be disman-


Pearls' Gem
Pearl Carter
tled by the crew of the next
show. Every nail and board will
be reused in the next set or stored
in "shop heaven."
Meanwhile in the back room
outfits are created, and Helen and
her crew work on creating the
costumes of the era and custom
fitting the people of varying
sizes. And yes, there is a costume
heaven and a prop heaven, too,
where they found all the mugs
for the inn scene. The areas are
called "heaven' because they are
stored way overhead.
When they ask me what was
one of the peak experiences in
my life I have to say the privi-
lege of being part of this show. It
has had so many ah ha moments.
One of the most outstanding was
coming upon a group of young
teen boys between scenes dis-
cussing religion from philosophi-
cal, biblical and secular points of
view! Their conversation didn't
sound juvenile at all. It was wor-
thy of any ecumenical discussion.
These are not teens who caused
the mall to have a curfew. I have
had discussion of archeology
with a teen and another ques-
tioned me about the Tanakh (con-
tains the Torah, the Prophets, and
Writings). Another was the real-
ization that Elton had grown two
inches since rehearsal began ...
or did I shrink? Can you imagine
kids doing their homework after
getting their makeup put on and
studying between scenes and cos-


tume changes, confusion and not
goofing off. I am proud of them.
It has been a time of renewal
of old relationships and cement-
ing new ones. One of the women
I met for the first time was like a
love affair of seeing someone
across a crowded floor. We were
immediately attracted to each
other because of jewelry and then
one after another similarities
occurred. We share a birthday
April 27 ... not the same year
though. We share a profession,
even a religion and purpose.
Making a new friend is really a
treasured experience. '
I marvel at the people ... busy
people, professional people,
lawyers, teachers, directors of
local agencies, high school and
grade school children ... who
devote hours upon hours of their
time and energy to our local
jewel, Highlands Little Theatre.
There is something to be said
about a community that will sup-
port a sellout of a show decrying
intolerance.
It makes us feel proud of
where we live. Thank you, thank
you, thank you for the privilege
of being part of it.
NOTE: The show runs from
Nov. 8-22. Box office hours are
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday-Friday
and 6-8 p.m. Tuesday. On
Friday And Saturday show nights,
doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Tea Party to gather again Saturday


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - The
Highlands Tea Party move-
ment is growing at a rapid
pace and has been in the
process of planning its next
event, which will take place
from 1-3 p.m. Saturday on
the Circle in downtown
Sebring.
"Our goal is to raise
awareness of various impor-
tant issues affecting our
nation today," said Mary
Bengtson, the chair of The
Highlands Tea Party and one
of the many organizers of
Saturday's event. "We are
expecting a huge turn out
with people coming from all
over the state of Florida. We
were unaware when we
picked Nov. 14 as our event
date that a large anti-amnesty


grass roots group was already
in the process of coordinating
events all across the country
on that same date. They con-
tacted me and asked if we
had engaged a speaker on the
subject of amnesty and, if so,
they had a lot of concerned
citizens that would like to
attend our event."
"We have a speaker on that
very subject, Tom Macklin,
former mayor of Avon Park,
, so we expect a lot of visitors
to our city on Saturday, and
I'm excited about that,"
Bengtson said.
Other speakers will
include Mike Barry, Richard
Norris, Bill Farmer, and
Barry Foster. Master of cere-
monies will be Don Elwell
and the key note speaker will
be Robin. Stublen, the Florida


coordinator for the Tea Party
Patriots. Patriotic and inspi-
rational musical entertain-
ment will be provided by The
Rivoli Revue, who will per-
form "Press One For
English," Rebecca Faith,
Dustin McCranie and Doug
Gandy.
The event will be followed
by the Saturday Night Cruise
and the finale of Heartland
Idol. With the event coordi-
nators expecting a large turn
out, they urge those who wish
to attend to come early and
get a parking space along the
spokes of the Circle as the
parking spaces on Circle
Drive will be reserved for the
Saturday Night Cruise cars.
For more information, con-
tact thehighlands
teaparty@yahoo.com.


Buildings to be beefed up for storms


Continued from page 1A
have come down and we can save quite a bit
on this project," Nichols said.
Upgrades to the Health Department include
the installation of concrete-filled cells in cer-
tain locations in existing exterior walls, new
roof drains, replacement of the metal edge
strips on the existing roof and steel joist
bridging at exterior walls.
The Bert J. Harris Jr. Agricultural Center,
located at 4509 S. George Blvd., received a


similar grant in the amount of $454,000.
The county approved the contract award to
the lowest bidder, Coral Sands Construction,
LLC from North Port.
The Harris Building will get a completely
new metal roof, as well as the same concrete
fill work to the outer walls.
The local match for the project is $113,500,
a reduction from the estimated $143,314.
Both buildings are used as special needs
shelters during hurricanes or any other emer-
gency.

Emmanice "Tangie" McCullors is part of a core group of Lady Blue Streaks returning
from last year's regional playoff qualifier.



Lady Streaks start anew


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING - It seems
funny how things can look
relatively similar on the
surface, but have a wholly
different feel from within.
Sure, as with all high
school sports, there is turn-
around from year to year,
and the Lady Blue Streak
basketball team lost two
key players in Hannah
Shoop and Maxime Copely
- but for the most part,
many familiar' faces are
back.
"We will miss their size,
knowledge, experience and
hustle on the court," head
coach Mike Lee said of
Shoop and Copely. "Off
the court, we will miss
their leadership and ability
to motivate the team."
And while the team
acknowledges what they're
missing from last season's
district runner up and


regional qualifier, they are
eager to take a step up.
"This is kind of the new
era," senior guard Jerica
Moore said. "This group
has played together so
long, but we've always
been the back-ups, or the
next group behind the
Hannah's and Whitney
Lee's and Brittany
Bullock's. Now it's our
turn to step forward and be
the leaders."
That core group would
include seniors Moore,
Emmanice "Tangie"
McCullors, Zykeria
Dawkins, Madison Rose
and junior Shannon
Williams - who all provide
a nice mix of abilities.
"Zykeria brings speed,
toughness, experience and
leadership to the point
guard position," Lee said.
"Tangie is very versatile.
She's strong, quick and
plays much bigger than her


size. Jerica's another ball
handler who brings leader-
ship and a consistent out-
side shot while Madison
also shoots well from the
outside but with her height
can go inside as well. And
Shannon, she has size and
strength as well as decep-
tive speed, ball-handling
ability and will consistent-
ly knock down the mid-
range jumper."
Coming back into the
mix will be senior
Shwonda Holdmann, who
took last year off but
brings both size and speed
to provide a low post pres-
ence who can get out on
the break - which is the
plan for the Blue Streak's
this season.
"We're going to run it,"
Lee said. "It suits our play-
ers with the speed we have
and Shwonda might be the

Lady Devils ready to hold court


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK. - Avon
Park has always held a rep-
utation for fielding com-
petitive basketball teams,
but according to coach
Paulette Daily, the redis-
tricting this year created
several new unknowns. a:
"It's all new," Daley
said. "Except for Fort
Meade, we are playing
teams that we have not had
a look at before."
According to Daley, the
loss of four seniors created
some openings that should
be filled with solid and
experienced players.
"We have some good
girls filling in for our lost
seniors, and it should be a
good year," Daley said.
Johnequia Perry returns
for the Lady Devils this
year, and fills the strong
presence in the middle left
by Lady Devils Brearnna
Tate and Daija Barrett.
Perry was the 2009
Homecoming Queen for
Avon Park, and Daley
expects her to "hold court
regularly" for the Devils.
"We are expecting some
good things out of
Johnequia Perry this year
under the basket," Daley
said. "She played well for
us last year, and she has a
lot of talent."
The senior replacements
also includes Tia Shannon,
who has some time on the
court, but fought with
injuries last year.
"Tia has one job,
rebound, and she is healthy
this year. If she can stay
healthy, she will make a

Markita Hawthorne will be leading the Red Devil
charge as the team's point guard this season.


difference under the net,"
Daley said.
Returner Markita
English will play at the top
on offense, and should set
the pace for the press this
year.
"We are working on our
speed. We could press a lot
last year because we were
fast, but this year, we need
to work hard on our press,"
Daley commented.
One of the returners who
has that breaking speed,


Markita Hawthorne, will
control the point for the
Devils this season.
A new member of the
Devil's this year is sopho-
more Johntavia Perry,
Johnequia's sister, but
Daley told the News-Sun
that the newcomer is versa-
tile, something that is
needed.
"Johntavia can play at
center-forward or on the

Highlands numbers whittled down in

Cross Country, Swim meets


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@nhewssun.comn
Each step along the way
gets tougher and tougher as
the best the state has to offer
vie for a spot at the next level.
Highlands County hopefuls
got a dose of that last weekend
as, despite their best efforts
and strong performances, one
runner, Sebring's Connor
Bauer, one swimmer, Lake
Placid's Dylan Weber-
Callahan, and one diver,
Green Dragon Edwin
Velazquez, moved to the next
level of their respective com-
petitions.
Bauer cruised to a second-
place finish in 16:32.48 at the
District 6-3A cross country
meet Friday, to move him for-
ward to the Region 3-3A com-
petition in Punta Gorda
Friday.
The Lady Streaks were
strong, but the highest indi-
vidual finishes weren't quite
good enough to advance,
though Taylor Tubbs 23rd-
place finish out of 92 in
22:02.98, as a freshman, look
to have her in the running for
years to come.
Seniors Amanda Kennedy
(35th in 23:11.24) and Caitlin
Moulds (46th in 23:44.93)
also finished in the top half of
the runners.

As was reasonably expected,
Blue Streak Connor Bauer
ran to Regionals with a sec-
ond-place finish at the
District 6-3A meet Friday at
Veteran Park in Fort Myers.

Estero, Lake Placid freshman
Blake Fort took 38th in a field
of 98 in 24:21.58 and seniors
Jordan Scott and Vincente
Ramos were 50th and 54th,


respectively for the Dragons.
Up in Ruskin at the District
5-2A competition, Lady Red
Devil Minerva Arreguin was
25th out of 88 in 22:41 and for
the Red Devil boys, Charles
Hubbard (47th out of 100, in
19:09) and Dexter Grenier
(49th, 19:10.60) were Avon
Parks' top finishers.
Into the pool at Lake
Highland Prep, at the Region
2-IA swimming competition,
the Green Dragons saw
Weber-Callahan take a fifth
place in the Boys 50-meter
Freestyle in a personal-best
time of 22.87, to move on to
the State Finals in Orlando
Saturday.
Joining him on the trip will
be teammate Velazquez who
also placed fifth, with an 11-
dive, cumulative total of
351.35 points.
There were some close calls
for the Dragons, with Tammi
Beach just missing in the 50
Free with a 27.26 time.
The Boys 200 Medley
Relay team of Matthew
Padovano, Kevin Smit,
Jerquaid Quinn and Robert
Greene were just over five
seconds off of what would
turn out to be the qualifying
time of 1:47.04.

A surprise addition to the squad is junior
Amanda Grimaldo, who's knee brace pro-
vides the reminder of her ACL injury less
than a year ago, but her mobility seems just
about back to go along with the ever-present
determination.
"She's just a tremendous athlete who will
bring size and strength to our line-up," Lee
said. "She's very competitive and hates to .
lose." R
Rounding out the roster will be senior
Michelle Baker, juniors Michelle Blaine,
Alexis Grant and sophomore's Sam Jansen
and Emily Rose who all bring a combina-
tion of varsity and junior varsity experience
and mirror the core with their blend of size,
speed and hustle.
In another new twist, with realignment,
Sebring finds itself playing in District 5-5A
with. a slew of new, though familiar, oppo-
nents including perennially powerful
Haines City, Winter Haven and Lake Wales
squads.
"Winter Haven always seems to be in the
state mix and we know Haines City always
has a real good team," Lee said. "But our
goal is to be competitive and I think we will
be. It's going to be fun and I'm anxious to
get started."
The team did get started Tuesday night as
the host of the Pre-Season Classic with
Bartow and LaBelle squaring off in the 6
p.m. game and the Streaks facing
Okeechobee in the 7:30 p.m. contest.

this year," she said.
Fellow soph Brekayla
English will join the starting
crew this year as well, and
her successful traveling play


to fill spaces for Lady Red Devils


should add experience that
few other sophomores have.
"Kayla has some play, and
some wins, under her belt,"
Daley said. "She is a good

up, but the veteran coach was


reluctant to really discuss her
strategy this year.
"We are going to try some

weaknesses are," the coach
said. "We have a smart team,

Town and Country
Mobile Home Park
By Janet Day

SEBRING - November
finally brings beautiful
autumn days, large migration
of northerners and, of course
- finally - the great American
tradition, the World Series.
Being a native New Yorker,
you know where my heart
inclines although (true con-
fession time) I didn't even
know who was vying for
either league until the play-
offs were nearly over. Used
to be I'd be faithful into the
wee hours knowing work
started at 7 a.m. 30 miles
from home. Times and age


bring change!
We welcome back many of
our northern family over the
past two weeks plus newcom-
ers this fall: Ken and Marie
Taylor come to us from
northern Florida - Marie and
Bill Mattison are siblings;
Dan and Kay Wolma from
Michigan reside in Ms.
Kitty's former home; Bill and
Elizabeth Aeschliman who
rented last winter purchased
the Vaillancourt home. Ray
and Shirley Young have
returned after a family visit
to England. Please make wel-
come all our new residents
and our returnees as well!
Several in the park have
recently experienced surgery
and are home doing well.
Don Blonde (our renowned
Christmas decorating cham-
pion) is yet in Tampa
General. Our heartfelt
prayers for both Don and
Dolly. We all realize how
daily hospital visits can be
exhausting and Dolly is trav-
eling to Tampa and back. We
are thankful she has had fam-
ily members able to be with
her much of the time. We also
think of Mark Sims who had
a seven by-pass surgery this
week. We've been advised
Mark came through surgery
very well. Our prayers are
with him, Becky and family.
President Toby Chapel
presided at our recent
Homeowners' Meeting. Toby
introduced. several first-
timers to the Homeowners'
group. This is always wel-
come news. A slate of candi-
dates for Vice President,
Treasurer and Trustee was
presented and will be voted
on at the December meeting.
He thanked members
Shirleen Hedges,. Hal
Johnson and Bill Mattson for
their service on the
Nominating Committee.
Toby praised the efforts of
our managers, Tim and Debi
Strictland, pointing out the
many improvements and
assistance they provide. Debi
met with us at the Oct. 19


meeting sharing their feeling
that she and Tim are part of
the park family and as such
they wish to provide help and
protection for the residents as
much as possible. All con-
tractors and helpers must reg-
ister at the office upon enter-
ing the park and undergo a
background check for the
protection of everyone. Debi
also mentioned many incen-
tives for new home buyers.
We have available new
homes for sale and/or rent.
Debi also stressed that she
and Tim are available to help
in any emergency at any time
they are in the park. We are
all very appreciative of what
our managers are doing in the
park and for the concern they
show for us as park family.
Toby also mentioned the next
local meeting of RMO will be
held at Oak Ridge MHP on
DeSoto Road on Thursday,
Nov. 12. FMO represents
manufactured homeowner
members in Tallahassee
through lobbyist Nancy
Black Stewart, a great organ-
ization which does much to
promote our cause. Come
and meet Rick Ingler, our
local representative and learn
of present concerns.
We shared our first
Saturday morning breakfast
and had a Halloween potluck
dinner with very good
turnouts. Wendy Johnson
has an active fall schedule on
the agenda and appealed for
help and attendance to make
the season successful.
Breakfast will be served
Saturday, Nov. 14 starting at
8 a.m., in the clubhouse.
Ladies will meet for lunch at
Red Lobster on Wednesday,
Nov. 18. Thanksgiving din-
ner will be observed
Thursday, Nov. 26 at 2 p.m.
On Sunday, December 6,
many will be traveling to
Southern Warner University
to enjoy the Christmas musi-
cal celebration "Sounds of
the Season." It is a wonderful
concert. If you have never
been, be sure to join us. Sign-


up sheets are in the club-
house. Please register ahead.
Game night is Tuesday eve,
6:30 p.m. Bingo on
Thursday. Wendy also
reminded us HOA dues are
coming up at December
meeting. Also, she will be
ordering Town and Country
shirts if member interest is
positive.
Last Saturday, Nov. 7, a
group traveled to Bok Tower
to enjoy the Orlando
Symphony concert. We first
made a stop at the Chinese
buffet, China Pearl, in Lake
Wales. It was a great evening.
November birthdays
include Peggy George, Allan
Grossman, Janet Johns, Betty
Burris, Don Schnoor, Jan
Schirra, Opal Cummins,

Judy Blose and Carol
Shipley. Our best wishes to

Tropical
Harbor Estates
By Mary Ellen Bryant

LAKE PLACID - Jim
and Rose Witten and George
and Barbara Morse enjoyed a
cruise sailing on the Carnival
Freedom to Cozamel, Costa
Rica, Panama. The excur-
sions were very informative.
They went to the Tropical
Gardens in Costa Rica and
experienced the tropical rain
forest (it rained and rained).
They also visited the pineap-
ple plantation. Cozamel was
great for shopping. Panama
was an eye opener, all build-
ings and structures were built
by our military, most are
being remodeled but they
cannot keep up with the
refurbishing. The locks were
filled with boats waiting to
enter. Panama is getting
ready to build another lock,
even bigger than the others,


to -accommodate the. ships.
All in all, they had a great
time. They were over-
whelmed by the service,
shows and wonderful dining
on the Freedom.
Thanks go out to Jerry and
Bonnie Allen for hosting
Monday Coed Coffee on
Nov. 2. Thanks go out to Bob
from All Florida

try to keep it clean by hosing
off spills and not dragging
the chairs and lunges. The
covers go on the pools this
week and the gates will be
locked as long as the covers
are on. Water restrictions
continue. We are: to water
once a week only and there is
a fine of $100 if you are
caught watering more than
once. There are still openings
for siding deals where the
park will pay half of the cost
of siding your home. Please

attention.

Unwelcome guest
gets evicted in LP


Courtesy photo
Sandy and Al Pelski, also
known as Giggles and Big
Al of Toby's Clowns, ran
into George the Alligator,
who thought he could
camp out rent-free behind
their home on Lake June.
They decided to call a pro,
Chris the trapper, to evict
this nine-foot slacker. (Yes,
he was measured and not
estimated). It took a few
weeks, but George took the
bait on Saturday and, with
several friends on hand to
witness the eviction,
George was hauled off.
Everyone in the Cove
Section of Lake June was
relieved because many had
reported seeing George for
the past year or so.

SRetired school workers gather for meeting

Pictured are the 11 Highlands County volunteers that received their embossed canoe pad-
dles for 15 years of service as LakeWatch volunteers.


11 LakeWatch volunteers


honored at annual barbecue


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - The
Highlands County Lakes
Association, with the assis-
tance of Highlands County
Soil and Water Conservation
District, held its annual
LakeWatch appreciation bar-
becue at Windy Point County
Park on Nov. 1.
A crew from the University
of Florida LakeWatch headed
by Dan Willis came down
from Gainesville to hand out
packets of information on
individual lakes to the volun-
teers that sample them. They
also had tables full of dis-
plays and information con-
cerning our area lakes. The
staff was there to answer
questions the volunteer sam-
plers might have.
Willis also passed out serv-
ice awards to the volunteers.
There were 11 volunteers that


received an embossed wood-
en canoe paddle. This award
is given to volunteers who
have been sampling for 15
years. Since Highlands
County is one of the most
active counties in
LakeWatch, these 11 join an
elite group of Highlands
County volunteers who have
earned their paddles in the
past several years.
Willis explained to the vol-
unteers that a cut in funding
at the university threatened to
stop the sampling on nearly
half of the lakes. But rather
than lose the years of accu-
mulated data on half of the
lakes currently being sam-
pled, it was decided to reduce
the frequency of the sam-
pling. This reduced sampling
would still maintain the years
of continuous data that has
been gathered. Willis also


stated that until the current
funding problems are solved,
no new lakes will be added to
the program.
The information gathered
by LakeWatch is made avail-
able to Highlands County
Lakes Manager Clell Ford
and other environmental
agencies. A history of the
lakes' conditions is a neces-
sary tool to maintain healthy
lakes. County Commissioner
Don Bates was on hand to
thank the volunteers for their
valuable service to the coun-
ty.
For information on
LakeWatch call the
University at (800) 525-3928
(1-800-LAKEWATCH). For
local information on area
lakes that need LakeWatch

Rotarians

visit St.

Joseph"s

Hospital in

Tampa

Courtesy photo
A group of Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Highlands County and the Sebring Noon
Rotary Club, traveled to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa recently. They visited a little nine-
month-old girl from Belize who had just undergone heart surgery. She is recovering rapidly
and will be returning to her home shortly. Her surgery was performed through a Rotarian
project called The Gift of Life. This is a service sponsored by Rotarians throughout the
USA and has several hospitals that are members. It brings children into the USA to have
life-saving surgery they could not have received in their country. Rotarians provide funds
for the surgery, housing and transportation, as well as interpreters for the adults traveling
with the children. (From left) Rotarians Tony Morrison, Billie Jo Morrison, Bob Warren,
Joan Warren, Mary Strenth, Robert Strenth, Heidi Hass of St. Joseph's Hospital, Joyce

(bottom photo) that Rotarians will use to help area families.
