From tractors to treats,


Flywheelers have it all


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
FORT MEADE - More
than 20,000 visitors are
expected to visit
Flywheeler Park over the
next couple of days, and
many come for different
reasons.
Located on the Avon
Park Cut-Off Road just
about halfway between
Avon Park and Fort Meade,
the small village has grown
to 280 acres of antique
tractors, trading, horse and
tractor pulling, live enter-
tainment, flea market and
craft vendors over the past
few years.
The event runs for four
days, and wraps up on
Sunday.
"We try to have some-
thing for everybody," said
Board President Kevin
Savage.
Savage, and his army of
volunteers, help to direct
the traffic and make sure
that the hundreds of mem-
bers and vendors are in
place for the three shows
per year.
"This is our hobby, and
our motto is to 'preserve
the past for the future', "
Savage said.
And those who come to
the event appreciate the
hard work.
"This is something to
see, that's for sure," said
Jim Tomplin.
Tomplin hails from south

this year to see the heavy
machinery.
"We heard about this
from a neighbor and decid-
ed we would come down
and spend a few days dur-
ing this time of the year. I
like to tinker, and she likes
to shop, so it was good for
both of us," Tomplin said.
Tomplin's hobby is


repairing Farm-All tractors,
and he was out looking for
some specific parts.
"I need a seat to finish
one, and I could use anoth-
er one, if the price is right,"
he added.
The hard-working
Savage, who is serving his
first year as president, has
been helping out with the
event for more than 10
years, and is responsible for
making sure that things run
smooth over the site.
"I just came in from
repairing something, but we
will take a few moments to
ride up that way without
the radios, that way we can
take about 15 minutes or so
to look it over good," said
Savage as he took a
moment to address a fellow

Knickerbocker with a shad-

awards: the Merchant Marine
Honorable Service Button,
the Atlantic War Zone Bar,
the World War II Victory
Medal, and the Combat Bar


with a combat star.
During the ceremony, <
Sagerholm told the audience
the history of the Battle of
the Atlantic and explained its
importance - why the work
Knickerbocker did (he was
an able bodied seaman) was
so valuable and why it was so
dangerous.

sion of Poland in 1939, and
the spring of 1945, when

Thomas J. Moran, the county
has received enough 2009
H1N1 vaccine to hold vacci-
nation clinics for students at
the local schools.
"We don't know what the
turnout will be, but we have
3,000 doses right now. We
are going out on a little bit of
a limb because we don't
know how many we will give
out and how many more we
might get in right now,"
Moran said.
"It's difficult to plan with-
out knowing how many will
be going out and how many
will be coming in, but we felt
that it was a good time to
start the clinics at the
schools."
"We are asking people
from the other at-risk groups
to please be patient. There is
more on the way. There
seems to be a problem with

Highlands school district

recommended for accreditation


By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - A quality
assurance review team from
AdvancEd - an umbrella
organization that claims to
be "the world's largest edu-
cational community,"
including 23,000 private and
public schools in 65 coun-
tries, serving over 15 mil-
lion students - concluded a
three day visit Wednesday
with the announcement that
it is recommending
Highlands County be award-
ed district accreditation and
recognition as a quality
school system.
District accreditation
looks for examples of organ-
ized, consistent and sustain-
able improvement.
To earn accreditation, a
school district- must meet
quality standards, be work-
ing to improve and monitor
itself with both internal and
external reviews, including
an in-depth quality assur-
ance review every five
years.
The quality assurance
review team, made up of
nine members, determines
whether standards are being
met, assesses whether
improvement efforts are
working, evaluates the
effectiveness of the district's
own evaluation procedures
and provides clear and prac-
tical feedback.
The team inspected docu-
ments, made school visits,
observed classrooms, and
interviewed 38 administra-
tors', 69 teachers, four sup-
port staff, 54 parents, com-
munity and business part-
ners, 47 students and every
school board member - a


total of 217 stakeholders.
When reviewing evidence,
the team looked for corrobo-
ration of facts, worked to.
look at the district in context,
and examinedlthe district's
ability to reaflze its vision
and mission with the
resources at hand.
The team found the district
had many strengths, includ-
ing servant leadership, sup-
port for professional devel-
opment, reading coaches in
all schools, 'fFfocused and'
child-centered staff, good
working ', relationships:
throughout. the system from'
the board room to the lunch
room, an educational founda-
tion, the Career Academy in
cooperation with South
Florida Community College
and well-maintained facili-
ties.
The team commended the
school district for its dedica-
tion to vision and mission
and efficient management of
financial resources. It made
note of the commitment to
maximizing educational
opportunities for all stu-
dents, that all available data
was shared and used in
preparing lessons, and
expert help was sought
when needed.
The review team pointed
out some challenges yet to
be met. First on the list was
the need to find and keep a
professional staff that
reflects student diversity.
The team also said more
stakeholder involvement was
necessary, as was reducing
the gaps in learning between
student sub-groups. As with
all school districts at this
time, the review team said, it
would continue to be a chal-
lenge providing services


I.ith declining funding.
.The team recommended
.new' ways be found to
increase the graduation rate,
-.and lower the dropout rate. It
also suggested developing a
uqppport system for teachers,
6fe*.thai would provide prac-
ti(l classroom help as well
as .a-.view process includ-
ing cassroom visits by dis-
mdt! administrators.

emotion when he thanked
'the re' iew committee for its
posit te evaluation. In trying
to thank his own team, Cox
had to stop and take a
breath, swallowing tears of
pride.

hold Fall Trash &


Treasure Sale


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK - Those
looking for a bargain
should make a stop at the
Ridge Area Arc Fall Trash
& Treasure Sale on
Saturday.
The event is open to the
public from 8 a.m. until 1
p.m., and promises to offer
deals to those looking come
rain or shine.
The sale will be located
at 120 W. College Drive,
according to Executive
Director Rhonda Beckman,
and ,is being considered for
possibly a yearly event.
More than 22 vendor
spaces have been sold for
$8 each,- and the event
promises to host everything
from baked goods, to cloth-
ing, shoes, T-shirt overruns,
a Christmas tree raffle,
ornaments, garden items
and crafts.
"This is to raise money
for the Arc Scholarship, and
if it is successful, we could
do it again," said Beckman.
The Arc Scholarship is
for individuals who lost
services during the state
budget cuts last year.
According to Beckman,


Ridge Area Arc lost
$200,000, and the proceeds
from the sale will help
some of those in need.
The Ridge Area Arc
Parents will also be at the,
event serving lunch includ-
ing hamburgers, Nathan's
hot dogs, popcorn and!
sodas.
"It's goidg to be great.;
We already have a lot of
spaces sold, and there will
be a lot of chances to get a
great deal," Beckman said.
"The ;q9llege has their
annual :Mega-Sale at the
Police Academy every year,
and they called and invited
us to participate. There is
usually a lot of traffic for
that, and we were hoping
that some of those folks
would come over and have
lunch with us," Beckman
added.
Concerned about the pos-
sibility of rain, Beckman
said that treasure seekers
need not worry.
"We have the capacity to
still have the sale if there is
rain. We can move it inside
if needed," she said.

TODAY'S LETTERS


Final Eagle vote comes
before board Oct. 20
Editor:
When I first heard about the pro-
posed Eagle Project, I was curious
and open-minded about the
options. Maybe it would be a won-
derful opportunity for Highlands
County to gain much-needed tax
revenue and create good-paying
jobs. Maybe it would bring game
and prestige to the community for
providing America with Freedom
Fighters against our enemies. I
originally felt because of Greg
Eagle being a Native American,
that he would be sensitive to the
environment.
My knowledge of his reputation
as a good corporate citizen in Cape
Coral led me to believe that.there
must be merit in the enterprise.
In Cape Coral, Mr. Eagle donat-
ed the land, partial construction
and funding for the Skateboard
Park. He also was one of the few
developers in Cape Coral that was-
n't aksing for special favors. '
Another of truistic endeavor was
the donation of land and buildings
in North Fort Myers for a men's
Christian group.
So when I called his office, I
was somewhat surprised he never
returned my call. I was even more
surprised after calling his office on
the day of the Venus citizens meet-
ing. Again, no response.
At the Venus citizens meeting,
conducted by Commissioner Don
Bates in September, I was sur-
prised that the owner of the proper-
ty was there, also his high-powered
attorney, Bert Harris III, and some-
one from Mr. Eagle's office, but
not him.
After approximately two and
one-half hours it was apparent that
the Venus citizens felt their lives
would be changed for the worse by
nature of the project.
Commissioner.Bates said he would
take all of the information avail-
able and would vote Oct. 6 in the
best interest of the county.
On Oct. 6 history was made in
Highlands County. After approxi-
mately 12.5 hours of hearings and
testimony, the BOCC voted not in
the affirmative for this project to
go forward. It was troubling that
during the preliminary planning
stages mistakes were made. The
citizens got lucky because appar-
ently because one of the abutting
landowners wasn't notified proper-
ly and they got a second chance to
get organized.
On Oct. 20, the BOCC should be
able to finally put a stake in the
heart of this mess and send it on its
way. But remember Murphy's Law
- No. 1, Assume nothing, be there
and witness the final outcome.
The citizens of America have
one thing in common and that is
they hate legalizes written by
lawyers for lawyers and the public
be damned.
For the non-esquires or the
MENSE group members CPA 08-
481 L, it may be a little hard to
decipher that this was in fact Eagle
Project.
It would be nice for the citizens
to know exactly what projects are
going to impact their lives forever
without having to hire legal coun-


sel. You BOCC could change this
forthwith and post haste and your
citizens would be well pleased.

District makes proposed
power grab
Editor:
The Spring Lake Improvement
District Board of Supervisors are
again violating their oaths of office
and are not doing the will of the
people. They are now asking the
state Legislature for broad new
powers, that through assessment
powers would drive many senior
homeowners into foreclosure.
These are very trying times for
many seniors who are on fixed
incomes. We are, nationwide, in
the greatest financial crunch that
America has ever seen. Many
homeowners in Spring Lake will
not weather the financial storm. If
this "power grab," is allowed to
take place, the residents of Spring
Lake Subdivision are currently fac-
ing what is perhaps the most seri-
ous attempt by a public body to
change forever the character, feel
and cost associated with living
here.
There is nothing worse in
Florida or national laws than cor-
rupt public officials. The problem
seems to be the attitude of the
bureaucrats working in state and
federal agencies. They don't
believe - or cannot understand -
that they actually work for the pub-
lic. They seem to forget that public
taxes pay their salaries. Some
bureaucrats are under the mistaken
impression that they are working in
government merely to enhance
their own comfort.
Fortunately, President Carter,
under his administration, recog-
nized the long-standing problem of

bureaucrats' non-responsiveness to
the public. When taken office, he
listened to story after story of
bureaucrats' apathy, rudeness, irre-
sponsibility. He heard case after
case where American citizens got


the run around from public
employees.
President Carter was the first
president in history to do some-
thing about this problem. "He got
Legislature through the Congress"
that will have a sobering effect on
many bureaucrats. Under this
Legislation "a bureaucrat can be
fired" if there are a certain number
of reports from citizens charging
him with being rude and showing
apathy to the public. This rule gov-
erning bureaucrats' behavior with
the public is very encouraging and
long overdue.
The Florida Legislature should
not accept the proposed changes by
the Spring Lake Improvement
District. The Spring Lake home-
owners are almost 100 percent
against any changes.
To grant excessive power to tem-
porary elected officials to enter
into contracts that will last many
years is completely insane.

Say a prayer of
thanks to veterans
Editor:
As we all go about our busy
lives each and every day, how
many of us will stop to remember
even for a split second just how
many of our young men and
women are away in two wars'?
Wednesday, Nov. 11 is Veterans
Day. Will we even stop to say a
prayer for one silent minute?
Perhaps all the local people in
Highlands County will continue to
complain of their lack of sleep
when our planes are flying test
maneuvers all night or part of the
day.
Freedom is not free. There's no
guarantee on it. We have to fight
and continue to fight to be free to


live the way we dQ and we should
never take it for granted. Let those
planes fly all day and all night over
Highlands County! I, for one, am
so grateful that they're there and I
pray for their safety every day!
My own father was a fighter
pilot in World War II almost losing
his life. If the French hadn't helped
him after he got shot down, I
wouldn't even be here. Every time
I see the missing flyer plane forma-
tion I cry. The next time you hear
these planes, if you can't sleep put
in ear plugs, turn up your TV or
just say a prayer of thanks for
those brave men and all the others
that wish they were home watching
TV but can't be because they're
out there in harm's way protecting
us every minute of every day.

Rupert appreciated by
church members
Editor:
An Open Letter of Appreciation
to Rev. Randy Rupert:
It is with great joy we are writ-
ing this letter. We have been so
greatly blessed since you came to
us a year and a half ago.
You started visiting right away
and our attendance has grown and
grown.
You have traveled hundreds of
miles to visit us in hospitals and
nursing homes.
You've waited hours and hours
when We've had surgeries.
Your sermon messages have lift-
ed us and challenged us. We've all
received comfort, hope, encourage-
ment and heartfelt changes through
your sermons. Many individual
needs have been met and God's
own messages provided when you
spoke.
You have been God's messenger
as you've seen the important roles
God has for our members and
you've asked many individuals to
serve in unique ways.
Your leadership has brought
diversity in worship and prayer.
Large-screen TVs now add DVDs
and visual supplements for wor-
ship. There is family altar prayer
on Sunday mornings, group prayer
surrounding individuals, prayer
services for special causes and
many other avenues of prayer.
You brought us your talented,
Spirit-filled, dedicated, kind and
caring wife, Charletta.
You created a website for us.
You've led us during difficult
times with tact and optimism.
You've been a steady pilot at the
helm, with a great sense of humor
at exactly the right time.
You've been a participant in
community church events and you
have been faithful in all of our
services. We have an ever-expand-
ing Hispanic ministry with its own
services and events.
Our church has been profoundly
challenged, changed and expanded
in its ministries since you've come.
You've led us to produce fruit for
eternity.
Please receive our most sincere
thanks,
The Members of the Avon Park
Church of the Nazarene

Near Death
Experience seminar
at Lake Placid
Memorial Library
LAKE PLACID - At 2
p.m. Saturday, theosophist
Judith Snow will present a
program on Near Death
Experience (NDE) at the
Lake Placid Memorial
Library. This will be the
beginning of a series of pro-
grams that Snow will bring
to the library this year.
Theosophy is traced back
to ancient Greece but the
modern aspect is usually
considered as having been
brought to the west by
Helena Petrovna Blavtsky
and Henry Steel Olcott who
founded The Theosophical
Society in New York City in
1875.
Blavtsky and Olcott pro-
fessed a belief in the forma-
tion of a nucleus of the
Universal Brotherhood of
Humanity, the study of com-
parative religion, philosophy
and science and the investi-
gation of the unexplained
laws of nature and the pow-
ers unused in man.
Theosophy was its strongest
in the United States during
the 1920's. There is still a
following in the United
States and Florida.
If interested in attending
this first lecture, call the


library at 699-3705 and

IN MEMORY OF

PHYLLIS VENTURA WATERS
July 17, 1955 - November 11, 1984

It is hard to believe that it has been 25 years
since we we lost you.It remains a horror, that
your life was shortened in your prime.
It was taken away when your future
still had so many questions to be answered,
so many dreams to be fulfilled, and so much
time to endure.
You are missed by so many because you were
a "people person".....always trying to help
someone else with that Big Heart of yours.

Because of your faith in God,
we know you are in Heaven.
And because of your faith in people,
you still live in our
Hearts and Memories.

Swine flu vaccinations ready

to be given at local schools


Continued from page 1A
together to have vaccines
available at different school
locations at no cost and on a
voluntary basis.
Students will have to bring
a parent or legal guardian to
complete the consent form.
The vaccine will be offered
in both forms - nasal mist
and shot.
"In an effort to offer the
vaccine to the five high-risk
groups, .the. ,Highlands
County Health Deipartment
will also schedule additional
clinics that will be made
available to you as soon as
we know the date. lime and
location," Moran wrote in a
press release.
According to the Center
for Disease Control (CDC),
the initial supplies are limit-
ed nationwide.
The Advisory Committee
on Immunization Practices
(ACIP) has recommended
that the following groups
receive the vaccine before
others: pregnant women,
people who live with or care
for children younger than 6
months of age, health care
and emergency medical serv-
ices personnel with direct
patient contact, children 6
months through 4 years of
age, and children, especially
those younger than 5 years of
age and those who have high-
risk medical conditions are at
increased risk of influenza-,,
related complications.
Moran also cautioned that
there are risks involved with
taking the any vaccine, like
any medicine, and there
could be a serious problem,
such as a severe allergic
reaction.


School Clinic
Schedule
Sebring High School
Monday and Tuesday,
3:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. Only
students from Sebring
High School, Sebring
Middle School, Fred
Wild, Cracker Trail,

and the Kindergarten
Learning Center.
Avon Park High School
Monday,. Nov. 23, 1
p.m.-7 p.m.
Students from Avon
Park High, Avon Park

and Park Elementary.
Lake Placid High School

Tuesday, Dec. 1, 3:30
p.m.-8:30 p.m. Students
from Hill-Gustat Middle
School, Memorial
Elementary and Sun 'N
Lake Elementary.
But the risk of any vaccine
causing serious harm, or
death, is extremely small.
The virus in inactivated
2009 H1N1 vaccine has been
killed, so you cannot get
influenza from the vaccine,
but the risks from inactivated
2009 H1N1 vaccine are simi-
lar to those from seasonal
inactivated flu vaccine
including soreness, redness,
tenderness, or swelling


where the shot was given.
Some adolescents experi-
ence fainting and there could
be headache, muscle aches,
fever or nausea.
If these problems occur,
they usually begin soon after
the shot and last 1-2 days.
The live attenuated nasal
spray (LAIV) is made from
weakened virus and does not
cause influenza, according to
the CDC Web site.
The risks from 2009 H1N1
LAIV are expected to be sim-
ilar to those from seasonal
LAIV and some children and
adolescents 2-17 years of age
have reported mild reactions,
including a runny nose, nasal
congestion or cough,
headache and muscle aches,
fever, wheezing, abdominal
pain or occasional vomiting
or diarrhea.
Some adults react similar-
ly and those between 18-49
years of age have reported a
runny nose or nasal conges-
tion, sore throat, cough,
chills, tiredness/weakness,
and headaches.
Moran still thinks that the
best weapon against any flu
is prevention, and the
Highlands County Health
Department would like to
remind everyone how to
limit the spread of this virus.
Wash your hands frequent-
ly, stay home from work or
school if you feel ill, and
cover your mouth with a tis-
sue or your sleeve when
coughing.

Merchant Marine

honored for service


Continued from page 1A
determined to starve
England out of the war.
English Prime Minister
Winston Churchill knew
the allies had to win the
Battle of the Atlantic at all
costs. He said as much
writing history years later.
Facing Germany's
blitzkrieg rolling across
Europe, and losing French
ports when that country
was overrun, England and
Russia were desperate and
in need of a steady stream
of supplies, from food to oil
to arms.
The convoys provided
that lifeline. But to do it the
ships had to sail through a
vast expanse of water that
was neither welcoming nor
safe.
The already violent
ocean was made more
threatening by the number
of U-boats working togeth-
er to track and destroy the
vulnerable freighters and
tankers, which could only
travel as fast as the slowest
ship. In 1943, for example,
164 U-boats prowled along
the main channels.
Between the late sum-
mer of 1939 and the spring
of 1945 the German navy
had sunk 2,879 allied
freighters and tankers; two
out of three ships sailing to
Murmansk, Russia never
came back; and 40,000 men
were lost.
Knickerbocker, who was
raised in a suburb of New
York City, went to sea at
the age of 16 in 1943. He
was bent on enlisting in any
service that would have
him - his older brother
had joined the Navy - but
kept being refused because
he was too young.
He went to the principal
of his school to ask for
advice. "Cheat," said the
principal.
So he did, and was
accepted by the Merchant
Marine, a service so des-
perate for men it didn't
check his claim closely.
Within days of signing up


Knickerbocker was aboard
a freighter left over from
World War I and taking in
lines.
"It was cold and rough,"
he said. "You went up that
mast on look-out and
underneath your pea-coat
you wrapped newspaper to
keep the wind out. The
decks were covered in ice,
and you'd wear shoes
wrapped in newspaper
inside of a pair of boots.
"But at 16 it doesn't
bother you. You have no
fear. You expect (to be hit).
Seeing other ships go down
was just, 'When will it be
my turn?'
"Unless there was an
explosion, there was plenty
of time to escape and other
ships in the convoy usually
picked you up."
Knickerbocker's turn
came in 1944 when his ship
was shot out from under
him off the coast of
Gibraltar. He made his way
to a lifeboat station and
escaped along with all his
crewmates but one.
Slowly the tide of war
turned. Breakthroughs in
technology, new ships and
long-range airplanes com-
bined to remove the U-boat
threat. By late 1943, for
example, the Allies were
sinking an average of one
every other day.
Knickerbocker was over-
whelmed with emotion dur-
ing the ceremony, an event
brought about by retired
Army Lt. Colonel Russ
Ramsey, who is a friend
and wanted to see
Knickerbocker properly
honored.
Because they were civil-
ians, Ramsey told the audi-
ence, merchant sailors had
been overlooked for years.
Ramsey remembered his
father, a World War II vet-
eran, telling him to never
underestimate the contribu-
tion made by the merchant
marine.
"They brought beans,
bullets and a way home,"
he said.

The Florida Flywheelers are hosting their 14th Annual Fall Fuel Up: Salute to Veterans &
4-H. The event features an old fashioned village, tractor pull arena, picnic areas, live
music, saw mill demonstrations, antique engines & motors, a kiddie train and kiddie trac-
tor pull. Admission is $7 for adults and free for kids 12 and under.

Plenty to do and see at Flywheelers


Continued from page 1A
Flywheeler before taking some out time for
an interview.
From helping at the front gate to organiz-
ing the trams, Savage was busy, but passed
the praise off to his fellow volunteers.
"All of our members are volunteers, and it
is their hard work that helps put on this
show," Savage said when asked how many
are needed to work a show.
According to its Web site, the Florida
Flywheelers Antique Engine Club is a non-
profit organization founded in 1972.
The organization's goals are to promote
interest in restoring, preserving and exhibit-
ing antique internal combustion engines,
steam engines, antique tractors and autos
and other labor-saving devices from the


bygone years.
In 1997, the organization decided to pur-
chase property in a central location in south
Polk County where members could have a
show to display their collections to the pub-
lic without the need to rent facilities.
From those humble beginnings,
Flywheeler Park has now grown tremen-
dously, and includes a tractor pull track,
club and member buildings which house dis-
'plays, collections and many large engines,
and a membership which is over 2,400,
according to Savage.
"Our main goal is to preserve a part of our
heritage for all generations and historians to
enjoy," the brochure says.
"But we are really here to swap, parts,
tractors, and stories," Tomplin said.

AP Library shows
'What Did You Do in
the War Daddy?'
AVON PARK - The
Avon Park Library, 100 N.
Museum Ave., will show
"What Did You Do in the
War Daddy?" at 2 p.m. on
Saturday.
Directed by Blake
Edwards in 1966, the movie
is 116 minutes. Edwards'
spoof on a less-than-disci-
plined army company in
World War II Italy is as fresh
today as in the year it was
made. Any comedy cast that
included Dick Shawn was
sure to be originally funny.
(He was so quirky that when
he died of a heart attack dur-
ing a one-man show in San
Diego, the audience and
back stage personnel waited
for 15 minutes for him to


spring up and continue with
his antics before someone
went on stage to check him
out. The audience finally
trickled out of the auditori-
um still not convinced that
they had not witnessed one
of his pranks).
Not rated.


Adelt to

leave AP

manager

position
Continued from page 1A
'Having a Mary Heart in a
Martha World.'
"It's just closing a
chapter and opening a
new one. It's about joy
and peace."
Mayor Sharon Schuler
praised Adelt.
"She has done a good
job as city manager,"
Schuler said. "She over-
came a lot of obstacles
and met them face on.
We'll be sorry to see her
go, but she needs to fol-
low her heart. We wish
her well."
City council member
George Hall echoed
Schuler's thoughts.
"I hate to see her go. I
think she's done, a ton of
progress for the city. I
wish her the best. Being
at the top isn't easy.
Frostproof's gain will be
our loss."
Both Schuler and Hall
said the city council
would have to meet to
decide on the immediate
future. Both expect a spe-
cial meeting to be called.
Hall, in particular, felt
the timing was excellent.
The outgoing council
could get the position
advertised, he said, so the
incoming council would
have a pool of candidates
to chose from.
Adelt was named inter-
im city manager in
February of 2008 to
replace C.B. Shirey, then
had the interim tag
removed by the city coimn-
cil on April 28. .,

Your Quick Sulde TLo- Week's Actlr


Avon Park

at

Sebring
Records
Avon Park 3-6; Sebring 6-3
Last Week
Avon Park: Tested, but couldn't top,Tampa Catholic in 38-20 loss on the road.
Sebring: GaveTenoroc a Homecoming downer with a 35-7 win over theTitans.
Game Notes
* This series of county rivals dates back to 1926, in what is assuredly among
the most long-standing match-ups in the history of the state.
* Sebring won a dose one last year at Avon Park, 14-13, to move their lead in
the series to 46-40-1.
* Sebring's Devin Clarke is the leading receiver in the state of Florida, with
1,074 yards on 47 receptions, an average of 22.85 yards per catch, and 13
touchdowns. Blue Streak quarterback Matt Grubb is 11th in the state in passing.
* Perhaps a bit under the radar, Avon Park's Alonzo Robertson is fifth in the
state in receiving yardage, with 846 yards on 30 catches, that's 28.2 yards per,
with six touchdowns and a long of 86 yards.


Coach Speak
Avon Park's Andy Bonjoklan: "We
look forward to this game all year
long and the guys have worked hard,
but we have also had a lot of fun this
week. No matter what your record is,
the game with Sebring can make your
season. We are sticking with what we
do best, nothing fancy. And we hope
to get a few of the younger players
some time out there"


Coach Speak
Sebrlng's Jared Hamlin: "It's always
a battle with Avon Park and it will be
again.They are a powerful running
team and are running it well.
Defensively they move around and fly
to the ball.They will be a challenge for
us, but it'll be great, exciting. It's
always fun to see how these games
unfold and there's nothing we need to
do to get the kids more up for this
one."


Lake Placid

vs.

Lemon Bay
Records
Lake Placid 5-4; Lemon Bay 3-6
Last Week
Lake Placid: Had a dominant
performance in routing Gateway
Charter, 55-0.
Lemon Bay: Took one on the chin
against Braden River in a 48-7 loss.
Game Notes
* Caleb Jones is up to 1,222 yards
rushing on the season, putting him
23rd in the state among rushing
leaders.
* The Green Dragons have secured
their first non-losing season since '99
and are shooting for their first winning
season since '98 and second since '86.
Coach Speak
Lake Placid's Jason Holden: "Lemon
Bay is 3-6, but that doesn't show how
strong a team they are because they
are in a very tough district.They have
a fast running back (Andrew Schulte)
who's a smart runner and sees the
field well.The kids are definitely
excited.They understand what this
game means for us and how what has
been a great season is riding on this."


All games have 7:30 p.m. kickoffs unless otherwise noted

Streaks find winning combo


in Thunder and Lightning


By ELIJAH KLATT
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - The entire
Sebring Blue Streak boys
soccer team was on the
same page Tuesday, but
Thunder and Lightning -
Cody Watson and Buck
Schroeder, respectively -
made the difference, scor-
ing a goal apiece, as the
Streaks dispatched district
foe Osceola 2-0.
Lightning struck first for
the Streaks, and the offense
found it's legs, thanks to
senior Schroeder.
Sebring After
receiving a
pass from
fellow sen-
Osceola ior Kevin
Cochran,
Schroeder
scored his
third goal in
as many games, as he deft-
ly maneuvered the ball past
an Osceola defender and
drilled a shot in for the
score at the 24 minute
mark.
The goal, which was
scored just before the water
break, was to be the only
score of the half, despite
efforts by Osceola, and a
flurry of corner kicks just
before half-time.
In the locker at the half,
Sebring coach Tim Boulay
impressed upon his team to
keep fighting, and after
pointing out some room for
improvement, extolled his
team's good ball movement

and communication.
As regulation began
after the. half, both teams
came out hard, but the
Streaks found thunder amid
the spattering rain, just
nine minutes in, thanks to
the leg of Watson.-
With one of the strongest
legs on the team, Watson


took a shot from 40-yards
out that arced over the
Osceola defenders. and
soared into the lop-left cor-
ner of the goal.
"All the way as I
watched it, I was thinking,
'Maybe, maybe!,'" Watson
said. "I was so happy when

A Rose blooms


though Sebring falls


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING - "It's pretty
much what you expect from
a pre-season game,"
Sebring head coach Mike
Lee said after Tuesday's 49-
47 loss to Okeechobee in
the Blue Streak's Pre-
Season Classic tournament.
"We don't look so good for
a while, then everything
clicks for a few minutes."
Unfortunately, the click-
ing didn't span enough min-
utes to overcome the Lady
Brahmans, though games at
this stage of
Okeechobee the season
9 are more
about learn-
Sebring ing than
worrying
about wins.
4 "I saw
some real
positives, mainly that we
played the full game with
great effort," Lee said.
One positive may have
been the scoring outburst of
senior Madison Rose, who
lead the team with 15 points
and showed a cold-blooded
shooter's mentality with a
game-tying three pointer
with less than 30 seconds
left in the game.
Rose also showed a
temerity in taking it to the
rim, going into the lane
twice for scores in showcas-
ing her inside-outside capa-

Another positive was the
scoring potential across the
line-up, as the points were
pretty well spread around.


After Rose's 15, Shannon
Williams proved a power

Dawkins added eight, Jerica

Jorge 'G' Medina dribbles upfield Tuesday night, on his way to scoring one of his three
goals in the Dragons 6-0 win over visiting Avon Park.


Dragons dominate Devils


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.comn
The light rain did little to
cool down a red-hot Green
Dragon team Tuesday night
as Lake Placid roared past
visiting Avon Park 6-0.
"Jorge Medina got us
going with the first two
goals," head coach Josh


Virkler said. And our
two captains, Kyle
Thompson at, center
defender, and Santiago
Herrera, our center
midfield, really stood
out."
Medina would add
another score to his

Lady Streaks corralled by Cowgirls


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
The Lady Blue Streaks
faced a tough task Tuesday at
. LaBelle, and while head
coach Steve Ashley was
appreciative of the effort, the
result wasn't quite what he
hoped.
"We hung with them for
about 30 minutes or so and
had it 1-1," he said. "But
they got one just before half-
time and then they opened it
up with six in the second
half. LaBelle is a very good
team, probably one of the
toughest we'll face all sea-
son."
With the 8-1 loss came
more bad news as goalkeeper
Misha Hahn took an awk-
ward fall toward the end of
the contest and may be out
with what may be a broken
rib.
"We're not sure yet, she
was going to have it checked

Sebring goalkeeper Misha Hahn, left, may be out of the net
for a while with what might be a broken rib.


out (Thursday)," Ashley said.
Sebring tried regaining
their footing on the pitch
Thursday with a visit from


Haines City in a district
match-up.

for a recap of the contest.

Streaks downed but

effort gets an A


Continued from 1B
Moore seven and Tangie
McCullors six.
"We actually didn't run a
single offensive set tonight,"
Lee said. "We just wanted to
move the basketball, set
some screens and just see
how the girls played. The
good thing about pre-season
is you get to see what the
girls can do.
"Okeechobee is a very
good team and that number
33 (Jewel Buck) was a real
force," he continued, regard-
ing the powerful, 6-foot Lady
Brahman. "That was a learn-
ing experience for Shannon.
Once she got the ball, it was
hard to stop her, so Shannon
had to learn to front her more
and prevent her from getting
the ball."
What the Lady Streaks
weren't lacking in was effort,
battling back from a 15-8
first quarter deficit to trail


just 26-24 at the half with
Dawkins pouring in six sec-
ond-quarter points and Rose
and Moore each canning a
three.
.Sebring then took the -lead
in the third with Rose netting
seven points, including a
three, and Williams working
inside for six for a 39-35
edge entering the final eight
minutes.
But eight straight to open
the fourth put Okeechobee
back on top and the
Brahmans would hold the
lead, save for Rose's late
three, before Markeisha
Henderson's two free throws
in the waning seconds sealed
the deal.
The Streaks faced off with
Bartow Thursday night, after
the Yellow Jackets topped
LaBelle 58-40 in Tuesday's
tournament opener.
See Sunday's News-Sun
for a recap of the contest.

Jerica Moore netted seven points on two baseline jumpers
and a three pointer as Sebring showed a multitude of scor-
ing weapons which could serve them well this coming sea-
son.

Watson didn't take the
credit for himself though, and
after the game when asked
about the team he responded,
"If we just keep giving God
the glory we'll go a long
ways."
,After the Watson goal, the
Streaks continued to be in
control, and using the 4-4-2
formation, the Streaks played


stellar defense all game long
- with starters Derek
Drummond, Isaias Chavez,
Kia Rahmanian, and Cody
Watson working together to
earn a shutout in their first
regular season game.
Sebring now gets a week to
practice and heal up as their
next match is slated for
Monday, Nov. 16 at Lake
Wales.


Lake Placid starts

Continued from 1B
the net, though Lake Placid
was in such command, he had
just three shots on goal to
defend.
The Green Dragon offense,
on the other hand, was pep-
pering the Red Devil keeper
with 39 shots for the night.


Lake Placid looked to keep
it's winning ways rolling
Thursday as Clewiston came
for a visit while Avon Park
tries to get on the winning
track tonight with Mulberry
coming to town.
See Sunday's News-Sun
for recaps of both contests.

RELIGION


Internationally known performer returning home for benefit concert


Britt Hall will perform at

Unity Centre on Nov. 24


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Britt Hall will
be in concert at 7 p.m.
Tuesday, Nov. 24 at the Unity
Life Enrichment Centre,
10417 S. Orange Blossom
Blvd., Sebring. The facility is
between State Road 66 and
Lake Josephine Road.
The concert is open to the
public and attendees are
asked to bring some canned
goods for local foods banks.
A $10 donation will be
received. A portion of the
proceeds will benefit local
charities. For information,
call the Centre at 471-1122.
Hall grew up in Sebring
where he is proud to have
been in the Sebring High
School band under the direc-
tion of Paul J.Gustat. "Mr.
Gustat was one of those
immeasurable forces in my
life for whom I will be forev-
er grateful. The support'and
belief he had in my talents
and abilities helped to give
me the confidence I needed


to move onward to do the
work I have done through
music."
Life has led Hall down
many paths since leaving
Florida for New York City
more than 20 years ago. After
wearing many hats on life's
journey (actor, singer, model,
director, producer, teacher,
counselor, personal trainer,
banker, waiter, maitre d'),
Hall finally realized that the
passionate thread of his life,
fostered by Gustat, was
music. It's what always has
come naturally to him.
Busy earlier in life as an
athlete (track) and musician
(piano, trumpet, saxophone),
Hall always considered him-
self to be a late bloomer. He
didn't begin his career as a
performer/singer until after
attending college, first at
Troy State University in
Troy, Ala., and later at the
University of Florida. He got
his start as an actor at
Highlands Little Theatre


Britt Hall


playing leading roles in
shows such as "Guys and
Dolls," "Annie Get Your
Gun," "Oliver!," "Heaven
Can Wait" and "Once Upon a
Mattress." He also performed
at Theatre Winter Haven
before moving on to his first
professional job in the out-
door drama "Trumpet in the
Land" in New Philadelphia,
Ohio.
After moving to New York,
Hall graduated from the
American Academy of


Dramatic Arts. As an actor,
he performed Off-Broadway
and in regional and dinner
theaters around the country
as well as national tours; His
work has included musicals,
straight plays, film, televi-
sion, cabaret and recordings.
He has also shared his talents
in Europe.
As the founding director of
Music Ministry at Unity of
New York, Hall's current
work has received praise
from around the world. He is
the director (and member) of
the internationally known
vocal ensemble Spiritus. A
November 2009 release date
is planned for their much-
anticipated new CD, "We Are
One," with Emmy-winning
producer, Steve Ivey. Hall is
also the director of the mag-
nificent 75-voice Unity of
New York choir, Voices In
Unity. He has produced and
directed numerous concerts
and events.
Hall also played a key role
in the creation and publishing
of the inspirational book and
accompanying CD, "Badge
of Courage" (written by
Barbara Raven, read by


Oscar-winning actress
Patricia Neal, music by
David Friedman, sung by
Spiritus.)
He has shared the stage
with such well-known artists
as Ben Vereen, JoAnne
Worley (Laugh-In), the late
Ruth Warrick (All My
Children; "Citizen Kane"),
Donna McKechnie (Tony
award winner, "A Chorus
Line"), Chuck Cooper (Tony
award winner, "The Life"),
fellow Gator Malcolm Gets
(TV's Caroline in the City)
and spiritual luminaries
Wayne Dyer, John- Shelby
Spong, Marianne
Williamson, Arun Ghandi
and Michael Beckwith, to
name a few.
Hall comes back to his
home town of Lake Placid for
the Thanksgiving holiday. He
brings with him Broadway
performer Rosenna Hill, for-
merly of Sarasota, to perform
at the new Unity Life
Enrichment Centre.
"We wanted to do a benefit
concert for those who have
supported us over the years.
We keep hearing about how
wonderful Unity's new centre


is and thought this would be
the perfect venue to host a
concert to help collect
canned goods and raise some
'funds for those in the area
who could use a hand up. We
both believe in giving back to
communities that foster the
arts and positive ways to live.
"Although my career is
what brought me to New
York, the moment I arrived
many years ago, it was clear
that I found my new home.
As the director of Music
Ministry at my spiritual
home, Unity of New York, I
am living proof that we real-
ly can create what we want in
our lives. I am truly honored
to be the leader of so many
talented individuals and to
have the opportunities to
work with people I've
admired for many years in
many ways. I love what I do
and my life just gets better
and better because of it. As
my favorite mystic Meister
Eckhart pointed out in the
13th century, 'If the only
prayer we ever said is Thank
You, that would suffice.' So I
fervently say, Thank You,
God!"

Church
LAKE PLACID - On

be willing to follow His
leading, even if it seems

the author of impossible
things. Perhaps God has
something for you to do in
